Liberal Pettiness and Deep State Dimwittery Abound This Weekend

Try to imagine, if you can, the all-consuming level of hatred and unbridled pettiness that led to this decision. – JustTheNews.com reports that some group of liberal social justice warriors who claim to spend their time “honoring the life and legacy of Susan B. Anthony” have voted to reject the pardon of the 19th century suffragette and civil right champion issued by President Donald Trump this week.

I swear I do not make this stuff up:

A group honoring the life and legacy of American civil rights icon Susan B. Anthony has refused to accept President Trump’s posthumous pardon of her, arguing the effort would give unearned legitimacy to the 1873 court proceedings that found her guilty of breaking a law that prohibited women from voting.

Trump this week announced he was pardoning Anthony for the conviction, a measure the president took on the 100th anniversary of the ratification of the 19th Amendment to the Constitution, which recognized the right of women to vote.

Yet the National Susan B. Anthony Museum & House this week rejected the president’s gesture, telling the president in a press release that the memorial organization “must decline [his] offer of a pardon.”

The foundation noted that Anthony, when she was convicted of voting, refused to “pay a dollar of [the] unjust penalty.”

“To pay would have been to validate the proceedings. To pardon Susan B. Anthony does the same,” the museum said in its statement.

“If one wants to honor Susan B. Anthony today, a clear stance against any form of voter suppression would be welcome,” the announcement continued. “Enforcement and expansion of the Voting Rights Act of 1965 would be celebrated. … Support for the Equal Rights Amendment would be well received. Advocacy for human rights for all would be splendid.”

[End]

So, they put a lot of flowery words around it, but the thinly-veiled motive for this stupid action is nothing more or less than all-consuming hatred of the President. No similar rejection would have been issued had the pardon come from Barack Hussein Obama His Own Self.

These people are pathetic, and deserve nothing but the derision and contempt from real Americans.

Speaking of contemptible people… – The leftist corrupt media has been going all gaga over an ad taken out in the weekend edition of the Wall Street Journal by several hundred former Deep State “national security personnel” who for some reason claim to be “Republicans.” Check it out:

Leftist fake journalists like Garret Graff are hyperventilating over the ad without stopping for even a second’s reflection on the fact that, the last time this bunch of Deep State skunks and snakes had real power – in 2001 – they got our country involved in a war in Iraq under false pretenses that lasted over a decade, and in a quagmire in Afghanistan that remains not quite dead 19 years later, by far the longest U.S. war action in the nation’s entire history.

Leftists like Mr. Graff never think for a moment about all the thousands of American men and women who have come home from those ill-considered wars in body bags, nor about the fortunes of the thousands more who have come back without limbs, with faces burned off, or the thousands of others who were so emotionally scarred by the experience that they have taken their own lives or wander homeless, begging for money on the streets of San Francisco, Austin and Seattle.

All he and his fellow fake, corrupt journalists see in that ad is a shot at the Bad Orange Man, a reason to drop the balloons and confetti and open a bottle of cheap prosecco.

What he and the others don’t see, and are apparently constitutionally incapable of seeing is this reality: We love President Donald Trump exactly because these corrupt, fake journalists and the 500 or so fake Republican warmongers who paid for that ad hate him.

This is, in fact, the main reason why Donald Trump was elected in 2016, and will be elected again on November 3.

But by all means, sip that prosecco Mr. Graff. Enjoy yourself. See you in November.

That is all.

Fox News Leads the Parade of Garbage Impeachment Polls

Today’s Campaign Update
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

These impeachment polls are very mysterious and confusing. Until you look at the details, that is.  –  The increasingly-trending-left Fox News came out with a “bombshell” new poll on impeachment Wednesday which Bret Baier solemnly told us shows that 51% of those polled favor both impeachment and removal from office. Baier further said that is an increase of 9% over an earlier poll taken before any of this nonsense about Ukraine broke. Which basically means that every leftist nitwit in the country has always wanted him impeached and removed, which should surprise no one.

This seems pretty strange since the President’s public approval rating in this poll and basically every other poll is essentially the same as it was in August. So, I decided to go take a look into the bowels of the results and guess what I discovered? Fully 48% of this poll’s sample identify as Democrats. This despite the fact that recent polling by Gallup and other organizations show that less than 30% of the U.S. population now self-identifies that way. 40% were Republicans, despite recent polling by Gallup and others showing that less than 30 of the actual population self-identifies that way. That leaves just 12% of this sample taken from the vast middle of the country that identifies with neither party.

This poll is trash. Garbage. A fake poll taken simply to create a fake news story for Bret Baier to parrot. Fox News is almost all the way achieving its goal of becoming CNN.

Ok, so, let’s go on to the poll from The Wall Street Journal/NBC released on Tuesday. This poll claims to find that 43% of the public favor “supporting [Trump’s] removal based on what they know today,” according to the linked NBC article. Yet, when you go take a look at the details of the findings, here is what you actually discover: When asked whether there is “enough evidence to impeach Donald Trump and remove him from office now,” just 24% in the poll’s sample say “yes.”

TWENTY-FOUR PERCENT.

Another 31% are in favor of holding “an impeachment inquiry to determine of there is enough evidence” to remove the President from office, because Americans just love their investigations. Fine.

But look at how absurdly NBC has misrepresented this poll’s actual findings to the public, simply to create a “news” story that might attract viewers and clicks to its website. It’s a disgrace.

One big difference in this poll as compared to the Fox poll is that it has a more reasonable partisan breakdown of 30% Democrat and 25% Republican, with the rest of the sample basically independents.

These are just two of the most recent of dozens of polls taken on the impeachment and removal questions, and when you look closely at the entire group of them, what you find is that this Democrat/Media coordinated anti-Trump frenzy over the innocuous Ukraine phone call has moved public opinion towards removal from office by maybe 2 or 3 percentage points.

Meanwhile, the President’s public approval rating as measured by the RealClearPolitics average of polls sits at 43.6% approval, slightly above his average for all of 2019.

This is not remotely what the Democrats and their media toadies were hoping to achieve here. Not at all.

They’re gonna need a bigger hoax.

Renewed Media Focus on Russia Means the Border Issue is Going Badly for the Democrats

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

You know they’re in trouble when they start recycling fake news stories. – The fake editors at the Wall Street Journal have become so desperate they now feel the need to recycle Trump outrage stories in their unending efforts to keep the Democrat rabble roused.

Over the weekend the Journal recycled the story from a year and a half ago that President Donald Trump did not allow note-takers in his first meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin in mid-2017. This is not news – this is a story that the entirety of the fake news media obsessed about endlessly in the wake of that long-ago meeting.

The lack of note-takers in the meeting between the leaders of these two countries is also nothing unprecedented or even unusual, as the fake reporters and editors well know. Hell, Barack Obama and John Kerry held secret meetings with the Mullahs in Iran for almost two years with no one taking notes, then shipped $1.6 billion in hard currency to them in the back of a jet, and no one at the Journal said boo about it. Yet the Journal’s fake reporters make it seem as if this is something only Donald Trump would have ever imagine doing.

As Trump pointed out at the time, he didn’t want anyone else in the meeting because he didn’t want the details of the discussion leaking out to the media. At the time in question, the President was so plagued with leaks that he was unable to hold telephone conversations with foreign leaders without the details being leaked and appearing in the fake media an hour later. Portraying this as anything else is a conscious lie, and a disgrace to the Journal and to the dying journalistic profession, such as it exists in America today.

The Journal’s disgrace follows on the heels of other fake media reports in the last few days about Trump and Putin/Russia, as the media/Democrat axis of disinformation desperately attempts to shift public attention away from the whole border controversy, which was not playing well for the Democrats as they vacationed at taxpayer expense on the beaches of Puerto Rico over the weekend.

Here are a couple of other headlines we saw from fake news usual suspects in the past few days:

FBI Opened Inquiry Into Whether Trump Was Secretly Working on Behalf of RussiaNew York Times

Trump has Concealed Details of his Face-to-Face Encounters With Putin From Senior Officials in AdministrationWashington Post

The Times’ reporters managed to write 1,500 words or so on their subject without ever mentioning the fact that the “inquiry” in question was ordered in early 2017 by then-acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe.  Gosh, wonder why?

Could it be that the fake journalists decided to leave that key fact out of their story because McCabe is himself a disgrace, a snake who was fired for his repeated efforts to mislead internal FBI investigators and currently finds himself the subject of criminal investigation? Yeah, it could be that. That’s where the smart money is, anyway.

Look, McCabe was clearly a central figure in the corrupt DOJ/FBI cabal that attempted to fix the 2016 election for Hillary Clinton, abusing the FISA process to illegally spy on the Trump Campaign and Transition Team. That Cabal did its best to frame the President into an obstruction of justice charge that Special Counsel Robert Mueller has, after 20 months of trying, been unable to substantiate. Of course, this despicable deep state skunk had an “inquiry” going against the duly-elected President of the United States – he had been working to try to bring the man down for a year by then.

The Post story is just sort of an extension of the Journal’s bit of news-fakery, 1,000 words about pretty much nothing other than a President plagued by leaks not knowing who he can trust, trying to keep everything he says off of the front page of the Washington Post. Of course he isn’t sharing every detail of his conversations with Putin or anyone else with some of his senior officials, especially with those who no doubt served as the anonymous “sources” for this very story.

These are all nothing-burger stories planted by agenda-driven “sources”, written by agenda-driven fake reporters and approved by agenda-driven editors for the sole purpose of creating a new narrative.

Think about the timing of them: They all came right at the time several hundred thousand federal workers were about to miss their first paycheck due to the ongoing partial government shutdown. The reliable fake-newsers at CNN dummied up a fake poll over the weekend (because of course they did) that purports to show most Americans blaming the President for the shutdown, but the issue is obviously not playing well for the Democrats.  Otherwise, we would not be seeing this frenzied rash of Russia-related fake news from the Democrats’ media support system.

The key to remember here is that the Democrats and their media agents are always pushing a narrative based on their polling and focus group data. The fact that they are back to pushing this fake Trump/Russia narrative at this particular point in time tells us that they are very concerned with how the whole border security issue is playing for them. If the issue were playing well for the Democrats, the media would be pushing that narrative 24 hours a day.

All of this is why, if you’ve been expecting President Trump to be the first to blink in the government shutdown standoff with San Fran Nan and Chuck Schumer, you should probably re-calibrate your thinking.

Soledad O’Brien Personifies the Media’s All-Consuming Hubris

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Soledad O’Brien: News Faker of the Week! – Soledad O’Brien, who learned the fake news trade at MSNBC and CNN and now does some sort of syndicated talk show, got on her Twitter feed yesterday to join D-list actress Alyssa Milano in bashing President Donald Trump for not visiting U.S. troops overseas over the holidays.

When former Fox News host Brit Hume pointed out that, by the time Milano had tweeted out her insult, the President and First Lady Melania Trump were already in Iraq preparing to visit the troops there, the hubris-addled O’Brien replied by saying, “Shaming him seems to work.”

Think of how demented a person must be to believe that, because she and her fake media pals started criticizing him over the weekend for presumably not visiting troops, the President of the United States of America dropped everything he was doing, jumped on Air Force One and took off for Iraq. It is the definition of unbridled hubris.

As Dan Bongino pointed out yesterday evening, Presidential trips overseas are logistical nightmares.  They cannot be done on the spur of the moment, simply because a president gets upset about bad news reports and wants to make it stop. These things must be planned weeks in advance, with every moment of the president’s time accounted for, allowing time for the Secret Service to set up appropriate security at every stop along the way.

Despite the petulantly-negative media coverage – because of course it was negative – the President and First Lady received overwhelmingly enthusiastic receptions from troops in Iraq and later in Germany. Here are some photos:

One more thing: Melania Trump became the first First Lady to visit troops overseas since Laura Bush made the trip in 2005. You won’t see Soledad or Alyssa making any positive tweets about that little fact, because hey, Michelle might be watching.

After all, you never saw any of them holding “Hopey Changey” hats when Obama visited. – CNN’s big outrage story related to the POTUS/First Lady’s visit to Iraq was about all the troops who showed up with red MAGA caps. CNN’s crack legal team has decided that the President’s signing of several of them puts the soldiers in violation of military regulations, because of course CNN is going to say that.

Oh, and the media also criticized Melania for wearing Timberland boots during the trip. I kid you not.

*sigh*

That time when Morning Joe pretended to channel Jesus Christ:

Ocasio-Cortez Update:

For the record, Mary, Joseph and their baby were not “refugees” in any sense of that word. They in fact traveled to Bethlehem in order to register for the Roman census. But in the fantasy world that Ms. Cortez occupies, there is no such thing as “truth.” Which, come to think of it, just makes her your common, every day socialist. Nothing special at all.

When is 42% reported as 5.1%? When the U.S. media is reporting it! – The Wall Street Journal published a piece celebrating strong U.S. consumer spending around this Christmas season.  Here’s a quote:

Shoppers delivered the strongest holiday sales increase for U.S. retailers in six years, according to early data.  Total U.S. retail sales, excluding automobiles, rose 5.1% between Nov. 1 and Dec. 24 from a year earlier, according to Mastercard SpendingPulse, which tracks both online and in-store spending with all forms of payment. Overall, U.S. consumers spent over $850 billion this holiday season, according to Mastercard.

The Wall Street Journal owes its readers an explanation.

That is all.
