The Corrupt News Media’s Plan to Expand its Mass Brainwashing Efforts to Your Workplace

And now, a Because Science Look-in at how the “science” about COVID-19 is working out for the people in North Dakota and South Dakota:

May be an image of text that says 'North Dakota vS South Dakota COVID-19 Cases Per Million North Dakota ✓ Masks Business Restrictions BOUTH N THE MOUNT South Dakota Masks Business Restrictions SD 1/28/1 ND Source: Covid Tracking Project Moving Average 0///10/20 4/21 12/12/20 @yinonw'

This concludes your Because Science Look-in for today.

Speaking of COVID-19, here is what happens when CNN, MSNBC and every local news channel in America removes their “death tracker” graphic from you TV screens right after a new president is sworn into office:

Yes, America, fully 2/3rds of you approve of the non-existent “plan” of a DC Swamp Sock Puppet to address COVID-19, even though that very same sock puppet admitted just 3 days ago that he has no plan to address the viral gift from China over the next several months.

This is the power of mass brainwashing and fake polling by our Nazi-style news media.

Holy crap.

Hey, wait, this is kind of inconsistent, isn’t it? – Meanwhile, as you are expected to believe the absurd results of that obviously faked-up poll, another leftwing media outlet, Axios, is telling that you do not trust Nazi-style news media to tell you the truth! Go figure.

I swear I don’t make this stuff up. Check out this excerpt from that story:

Trust in traditional media has declined to an all-time low, and many news professionals are determined to do something about it.

Why it matters: Faith in society’s central institutions, especially in government and the media, is the glue that holds society together. That glue was visibly dissolving a decade ago, and has now, for many millions of Americans, disappeared entirely.

By the numbers: For the first time ever, fewer than half of all Americans have trust in traditional media, according to data from Edelman’s annual trust barometer shared exclusively with Axios. Trust in social media has hit an all-time low of 27%.

  • 56% of Americans agree with the statement that “Journalists and reporters are purposely trying to mislead people by saying things they know are false or gross exaggerations.”
  • 58% think that “most news organizations are more concerned with supporting an ideology or political position than with informing the public.”
  • When Edelman re-polled Americans after the election, the figures had deteriorated even further, with 57% of Democrats trusting the media and only 18% of Republicans.

[End]

Boy, that’s a real surprise, huh? Note how, in the passage I’ve bolded, Axios and Edelman include the corrupt, Nazi-style news media as one of “society’s central institutions”. Who knew that Fredo Cuomo was so crucial to the survival of our society?

But that’s not the best – and most insidious for our nation’s future – part of this Axios piece. Check this out:

How it works: Media outlets can continue to report reliable facts, but that won’t turn the trend around on its own. What’s needed is for trusted institutions to visibly embrace the news media.

  • CEOs (a/k/a the fourth branch of government) are at or near the top of Edelman’s list of trusted institutions.
  • By the numbers: 61% of Trump voters say that they trust their employer’s CEO. That compares to just 28% who trust government leaders, and a mere 21% who trust journalists.

The bottom line: CEOs have long put themselves forward as the people able to upgrade America’s physical infrastructure. Now it’s time for them to use the trust they’ve built up to help rebuild our civic infrastructure.

[End]

Get that last part that I bolded for you? Do you understand what is being telegraphed here? The CEOs of the companies you work for are about to be deluged with mass re-education propaganda by leftist media outlets and government officials, pounding on them to force their employees to attend retraining classes in which they will receive media-prepared propaganda designed to convince them that CNN, MSNBC, the New York Times and the Washington Post are the company-approved places to get their news.

Your CEOs will further be influenced to provide copies of government-approved newspapers to employees, and to ensure that the TVs in the company break rooms are all tuned to CNN or MSNBC. Some of that influencing will be subtle; some of it will be less subtle and will come in the form of “education materials” from federal regulatory agencies like OSHA, along with implied or perhaps outright threats of regulatory penalties for companies who do not comply.  Some of it will go directly to your CEOs; much of it will be routed to your company’s regulatory compliance and human resources managers.

Even more insidious, your CEOs and other key employees will be urged to implement internal programs to monitor which news sites their employees are accessing on company time, and to subject employees who access sites that are not approved by the government to additional re-education exercises. Eventually, this will all be turned into a key part of your annual employee evaluations.

Many of you will read all of this and think I’m crazy, that this would never happen in America. You would be wrong about that. If you are one of those people, bookmark this piece and check back in with me in three years so we can assess how it’s all going for you.

Despicable: Washington Post Threatens Americans With Post-Election Violence

The brainwashing wasn’t enough. Now, they’re threatening you. – I’ve noted each of the past two days the media’s ramping-up campaign to brainwash you into accepting the results of a stolen election. Thus far the campaign has been based on parroting a scenario laid out by a Democrat front group funded by Mini-Mike Bloomberg called Hawkfish. That scenario goes like this:

On Tuesday, Axios ran a story quoting a representative of the Bloomberg-funded Democrat firm called Hawkfish, laying out the scenario the Democrat/Media Axis of Propaganda is attempting to set up for the November Elections. The scenario envisions a socially explosive situation created by the Democrats. The first part of it involves President Trump holding a huge lead in both the popular vote and the Electoral College when we all trudge off to bed on Election Night. But that lead won’t hold as Democrat vote counters in Blue and Red states around the country “find” boxes and boxes filled with “mail-in ballots” that magically contain the number of votes Biden needs to overtake Trump’s Election Day lead.

See how that works? They are attempting to condition you to be willing to wait for weeks while Democrat operatives all over the country conveniently “find” boxes filled with enough fraudulent “votes” to tip the scales for Hiden Biden, as President Trump has hilariously begun to call him.

Today, the evil hacks at the Washington Post decided to take the brainwashing to its next logical step, issuing what can only be accurately characterized as an overt threat to voters.

Here is how they rolled that threat out on their Twitter account:

See how that works? It is “the election” that will spark violence – not the Democrats and their sponsored domestic terrorist groups, BLM and Antifa, who have been burning down Democrat-controlled cities since June. No, it’s the inanimate object – “the election” – that is the culprit here, just as it is “the gun” that is the problem with the massive gang-driven murder rates in Chicago and Baltimore and New York.

Thus, with this opening sentence, the evil minions at The WaPo support two Democrat Party goals: To further de-legitimize the U.S. election system, and to threaten voters against casting their votes for President Trump.

Note also that they don’t just limit their “catastrophic,” violence-inducing outcomes to a close election outcome that is legitimately undecided. Oh, no: A clear landslide in favor of the President won’t quell any riots and lead Democrats and their terror groups to concede defeat peacefully. The Post’s evil minions understand – and support – the fact that the Democrats will never concede and will resort to even more violence and destruction to try to get their way.

It is only via a “Biden landslide” that a peaceful outcome can be achieved in the Post’s “analysis,” which makes sense given that evil leftists understand that conservatives actually believe in the American system and the peaceful transition of power that had been American tradition until the Democrat Party decided to discard it after the 1988 Bush landslide over Dukakis.

The Post piece was written by someone named Rosa Brooks. No idea who that is, don’t really care. Brooks is some sort of representative of something called the Transition Integrity Project, which is no doubt a Democrat front group funded mainly by other front groups who are in turn funded by George Soros. Honestly, I don’t really even need to research that to know it is highly likely, and you can bet the evil minions at the Post know it, too.

Here is an actual passage from Brooks’s screed:

Picture this:

On the morning of Election Day, false stories appear online claiming that Biden has been hospitalized with a life-threatening heart attack and the election has been delayed. Every mainstream news organization reports that the rumors are unfounded, but many Biden supporters, confused by the bogus claims, stay home.

Still, by late that night, most major networks have called the election for Biden: The former vice president has won key states and has a slender lead in the national popular vote, and polling experts predict that his lead will grow substantially as Western states count an unusually high number of mail-in ballots. The electoral college looks secure for Biden, too.

But Trump refuses to concede, alleging on Twitter that “MILLIONS of illegal ALIENS and DEAD PEOPLE” have voted in large numbers and that the uncounted ballots are all “FAKE VOTES!!!” Social media fills with posts from Trump supporters alleging that the election has been “stolen” in a “Deep State coup,” and Trump-friendly pundits on Fox News and OAN echo the message.

Soon, Attorney General William P. Barr opens an investigation into unsubstantiated allegations of massive vote-by-mail fraud and ties between Democratic officials and antifa. In Michigan and Wisconsin, where Biden has won the official vote and Democratic governors have certified slates of pro-Biden electors, the Trump campaign persuades Republican-controlled legislatures to send rival pro-Trump slates to Congress for the electoral college vote.

The next week is chaotic: A list of Michigan and Wisconsin electors for Biden circulates on right-wing social media, including photos, home addresses and false claims that scores of them are in the pay of billionaire George Soros or have been linked to child sex-trafficking rings.

Massive pro-Biden street protests begin, demanding that Trump concede. The president tweets that “REAL PATRIOTS MUST SHOW THESE ANTIFA TERRORISTS THAT CITIZENS WHO LOVE THE 2ND AMENDMENT WILL NEVER LET THEM STEAL THIS ELECTION!!!” Around the nation, violent clashes erupt. Several people are injured and killed in multiple incidents, though reports conflict about their identities and who started the violence.

Meanwhile, Trump declares that “UNLESS THIS CARNAGE ENDS NOW,” he will invoke the Insurrection Act and send “Our INCREDIBLY POWERFUL MILITARY and their OMINOUS WEAPONS” into the streets to “Teach these ANTI-AMERICAN TERRORISTS A LESSON.” At the Pentagon, the Joint Chiefs of Staff convene a hurried meeting to discuss the crisis.

And it’s not even Thanksgiving yet.

[End]

Now, as you read this, right now, today, Democrat-sponsored domestic terror groups are staging nightly riots in places like Portland, Seattle, Denver and other Democrat-run cities. They’re about to add Rochester to the list as well. Those same groups this summer have turned vast swaths of other Democrat-run cities like Minneapolis and Chicago and Kenosha into smoldering ruins reminiscent of 1945 Nagasaki.

Thus, there are only two semi-credible aspects of Brooks’s deluded scenario. The first is the part where “Massive pro-Biden street protests begin” in various parts of the country. That’s likely going to happen regardless of the election outcome, and we all know it.

The second is the part where AG Barr opens an investigation into allegations of massive voter fraud, which is also certainly going to happen, as the Democrats have been telegraphing for some time now. Again, we all know that is going to be the case.

Otherwise, this fairy tale is just that: A fairy tale, but an evil one designed to intimidate U.S. citizens into voting for Joe Biden. The most outlandish part of it – and the part that gives away her personal predisposition as a leftist activist – is Brooks’s refusal to recognize that the only party that has refused to concede an election outcome in modern history is the Democrat Party, which has not done so since 1988. That’s a fact.

No responsible, real newspaper editor would ever dream of running the piece the Post ran today. The act of doing so is vile, despicable and frankly evil in its framing and intent.

Think of this: Election Day is still two full months away and they are already issuing overt, violent threats. Think of what the Democrats will do between now and November 3 as they see Biden’s chances steadily fade away.

Protect your loved ones, folks. These are very dangerous times.

The Media Campaign to Save Joe Biden from Debates Has Begun

If you think Joe Biden will ever debate Donald Trump, think again. – As it becomes increasingly apparent to a growing majority of Americans that the Democrat Party’s presumptive nominee, Creepy Uncle Quid Pro Farty China Joe Biden, is in the middle stages of advancing dementia, the Democrats and their corrupt toadies in the national news media must concoct some rationale for ensuring that no presidential debates take place this fall.

Enter reliable old hack, columnist Karen Tumulty of the Washington Post, to kick off what will no doubt become a focused campaign to cancel these debates in the weeks to come. Noting that the Democrats have already ensured they can keep their Hidin’ Biden strategy intact through August by canceling their physical convention, Tumulty naturally praises that decision as “wise.” In the jargon of hack WaPo columnists, that means “consistent with the current narrative.”

She then moves to her rationale for killing these debates that she and her leftwing colleagues in the fake news media have treated like sacred, near-religious experiences that must be preserved at all costs in every past campaign.

Here’s an excerpt of Tumulty’s hack reasoning:

Trump is claiming he would like to have four faceoffs with Biden, rather than the three (plus one vice presidential debate), that are currently scheduled to take place between Sept. 29 and Oct. 22.

This is not a serious proposal. Even under the best of circumstances, scheduling these much-watched events on the busy fall calendar is a difficult challenge for the Commission on Presidential Debates, which has been in charge of the process since the 1988 election.

It has to find dates that are not on Friday or Saturday nights, do not conflict with sports and other events networks are committed to, or official presidential business, such as attending the U.N. General Assembly in September. Each debate generally requires the candidates to suspend public appearances for at least a few days to prepare.

[End]

What? Why is anything in that last paragraph in any way true? Is there a law that says presidential debates can’t be held on a Friday or Saturday night? No. That’s just for TV ratings purposes which, if the Democrats and media hacks like Tumulty succeed in shutting down the economy again with their Wuhan Virus Panic Porn, won’t be valid in any event since all the bars will still be closed and everyone will be sitting at home in front of their TV getting fatter.

And what are these “sports and other events” of which she speaks? With every passing day and every false report about COVID-19 Related “cases,” the chances of any of those things actually materializing this fall grows increasingly remote.

But the most utterly laughable aspect of that paragraph is Tumulty’s fretting about the candidates having to suspend “public appearances,” as if Joe Biden actually has plans to make public appearances. His entire campaign is focused on finding ways to prevent him from making such appearances, even if that means destroying the U.S. economy and way of life to do it.

Understand that at this point, the panic porn about COVID-19 and the Biden campaign are inextricably attached at the hip. Biden can only win this election if the Democrats and their corrupt media toadies – which now basically includes all of Fox News’s non-prime time operation – can keep the public in a panic and cowering in their homes through November.

A return to lockdowns is key to everything: It keeps Trump from holding the massive rallies that were the key to his winning in 2016; it justifies Biden’s continued strategy of hiding in his basement and being physically seen by as few Americans as possible; it helps to build a rationale for a national vote-by-mail scheme which in turn would maximize voter fraud efforts by the Democrats; and it serves as media justification for canceling face-to-face, unscripted debates between the candidates.

COVID-19 Panic Porn is in fact the Democrat Party’s entire political platform for 2020. Because they simply don’t have anything else to run on.

With 80% of the Republican congressional caucus consisting of timid, spineless cowards, they might just get away with it.

That is all.

No, President Trump Did Not Advise Anyone to Drink Clorox

Today’s Campaign Update, Part II

Seriously, you could never make this stuff up.

If you watched the press conference for the Coronavirus Task Force Thursday evening, you saw the depraved, corrupt news media at its very worst. After President Trump had a scientist (Bill Bryan, Under Secretary for Science and Technology at DHS) deliver the wonderful news from a study indicating that heat and sunlight rapidly kill the Wuhan Virus, we watched as the reporters in the room literally went into a panic. They simply could not bear the fact that their dream of helping the Democrats destroy America might come to an end as summer dawns in the U.S. It was truly hilarious to watch.

So of course they had to figure out a way to distract the public from this good news by drumming up yet another false narrative. That new false narrative has been derived from an exchange the President had with the detestable Washington Post hack Phil Rucker. When viewed in context of the full exchange, President Trump said nothing remarkable at all.

But of course, pretty much the entirety of the fake news media immediately leapt to extract a portion of a sentence out of that context and construct a narrative that the President actually advised people to inject bleach or rubbing alcohol into their bodies.

Here is a clip of what the President actually said:

For those who like to read stuff, here is a transcript of what the President actually said:

So, I’m going to ask Bill a question that probably some of you are thinking of if you’re totally into that world, which I find to be very interesting. So, supposing when we hit the body with a tremendous, whether it’s ultraviolet or just very powerful light, and I think you said that hasn’t been checked, but you’re going to test it. And then I said supposing you brought the light inside the body, which you can do either through the skin or in some other way. And I think you said you’re going to test that too. Sounds interesting. And then I see the disinfectant, where it knocks it out in a minute, one minute. And is there a way we can do something like that by injection inside or almost a cleaning? Because you see it gets in the lungs and it does a tremendous number on the lungs, so it’d be interesting to check that, so that you’re going to have to use medical doctors with, but it sounds interesting to me. So, we’ll see, but the whole concept of the light, the way it kills it in one minute. That’s pretty powerful.

[End]

So, he was attempting to summarize what Bryan had communicated to him and the Task Force members during a briefing held prior to the press conference. He was not giving advice to anyone, and in fact did not at any point suggest anyone drink bleach or rubbing alcohol, as every corrupt media outlet in America is contending this morning.

As Robby Starbuck points out, you really do have to be either a gigantic psychopath or criminally stupid to believe this new false narrative. Sadly, those two categories include everyone in the White House press corps and most of their audience.

Truly, there is no more non-essential segment of our society today than the utterly corrupt national news media. They really are enemies of the people, the very worst human beings on the planet.

Enemies of the People: Corrupt Media Can’t Decide if Russia is Colluding with Trump or Sanders

The Evening Campaign Update (Because the Campaign Never Ends)

At his rally in Las Vegas Friday afternoon, President Donald Trump taunted the New York Times for its effort to revive the whole Russia Collusion nonsense one more time:

 

No kidding – it’s a point I made in this morning’s Campaign Update, in fact. Of course, Putin would rather have the outright communist installed in the White House.

Oh, and hey, guess what? According to the laughably corrupt hacks at the Washington Post, Putin is actually helping The Commie, not Trump:

C’mon, all you sleazy liberal hacks – which is it? In all seriousness, what we have here is a classic case of split agendas colliding in the Deep State echo chamber: They can’t decide who to try to kill – Trump or The Commie? So, first they leak yesterday’s nonsense about Trump to the Times, and when the initial polling data on that one comes back that literally nobody outside of the DC echo chamber believes any of this crap anymore, they say, hey, let’s go after Bernie instead!, and they get their toadies at the Post to dummy up this story attacking The Commie.

Here’s the real danger in all of this: There have now been so many utterly false media reports tossed around about Russian interference in U.S. elections that the corrupt media outlets and our despicably corrupt intelligence agencies have lost all credibility. God help us if Putin ever does make a serious effort to interfere in a presidential election, because if he does, nobody in the public at large will believe the reporting about it.

At the end of the day, the Democrats and their media toadies have done Putin’s work for him. And who know? Perhaps that was their real goal all along.

After all, they really are enemies of the people.

That is all.

Another Comey Investigation, Another Chance for William Barr to Finally Act

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

Yet another narrative-setter from the NYTimes’s deep state mouthpiece hack, Adam Goldman. – Honestly, this is getting to be almost as frequent as the stock market closing at new record highs, something that also happened yet again on Thursday.

Goldman posted a piece yesterday designed to set the narrative for the Times’s Deep State managers, this time in favor of our National Teenage Drama Queen, former FBI Director James Comey. Goldman gets down to his cover business right from the start, with this headline:

Justice Dept. Investigating Years-Old Leaks and Appears Focused on Comey

Oh, hey, it’s just more leaks by Comey – and hey, we all have known for years Comey was a serial leaker – and the leaks in question might have involved classified information, but they are “years-old”, so what’s the big deal here? Right? Right.

But then Goldman really gets down to business with his sub-head, which is an even more blatantly-slanted statement designed to convince readers to condemn not the criminal – Comey – but the investigators:

An inquiry into years-old disclosures of classified information is highly unusual and leaves law enforcement officials open to accusations of politicizing their work.

So, that’s a two-for-one deal, not only sucking up to the Drama Queen, but also consistent with the corrupt news media’s ongoing efforts to smear Attorney General William Barr. Goldman has achieved all of that, and we haven’t even gotten into the text of his piece. That’s gold star stuff right there.

Let’s go to the first two paragraphs, of the piece, which first lay out the bare bones of what is actually taking place, and then quickly manages to also smear President Donald Trump:

WASHINGTON — Federal prosecutors in Washington are investigating a years-old leak of classified information about a Russian intelligence document, and they appear to be focusing on whether the former F.B.I. director James B. Comey illegally provided details to reporters, according to people familiar with the inquiry.

The case is the second time the Justice Department has investigated leaks potentially involving Mr. Comey, a frequent target of President Trump, who has repeatedly called him a “leaker.” Mr. Trump recently suggested without evidence that Mr. Comey should be prosecuted for “unlawful conduct” and spend years in prison.

There’s that favorite corrupt media phrase, “without evidence,” which is only used against Republicans and always manages to ignore the mountain of information in the public domain supporting the President’s statement. But hey, that’s what corrupt reporters at the New York Times are trained to do, so Goldman might get a promotion for checking off so many Deep State narrative piece boxes before we even get to his third paragraph.

You have to go to paragraph 4 to get to the essence of what the investigators are really looking into:

Law enforcement officials are scrutinizing at least two news articles about the F.B.I. and Mr. Comey, published in The New York Times and The Washington Post in 2017, that mentioned the Russian government document, according to the people familiar with the investigation. Hackers working for Dutch intelligence officials obtained the document and provided it to the F.B.I., and both its existence and the collection of it were highly classified secrets, the people said.

So, hey, Comey was leaking “highly classified secrets” to the New York Times (shocking!) and the Washington Post, the two major print mouth organs for the Democrat Party and the Deep State, which are largely, but not entirely, the same thing. Given everything we have found out about these three specific players over the last four years, this is akin to informing the Times readership that water is indeed wet.

So, what is the actual, exact nature of this “Russian intelligence document,” you ask? Well, you naturally have to go deep into bowels of the report where few of the Times short attention span readers will bother to tread to discover that it is actually nothing more than an official Democrat National Committee email sent by then-DNC Chairman Debbie Wasserman Schultz to one Leonard Benardo, an official with the Open Society Foundations, a group funded by … wait for it … George Soros.

Oh.:

The latest investigation involves material that Dutch intelligence operatives siphoned off Russian computers and provided to the United States government. The information included a Russian analysis of what appeared to be an email exchange during the 2016 presidential campaign between Representative Debbie Wasserman Schultz, Democrat of Florida who was also the chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee at the time, and Leonard Benardo, an official with the Open Society Foundations, a democracy-promoting organization whose founder, George Soros, has long been a target of the far right.

Note the sympathetic nod to Soros at the end, which attempts to portray this despicable Democracy-destroying monster as some sort of victim. This is how depraved Goldman really is.

The next paragraph is a real doozy, which is why Goldman and his corrupt editors buried it so deeply:

In the email, Ms. Wasserman Schultz suggested that then-Attorney General Loretta E. Lynch would make sure that Mrs. Clinton would not be prosecuted in the email case. Both Ms. Wasserman Schultz and Mr. Benardo have denied being in contact, suggesting the document was meant to be Russian disinformation.

So, gee, here we have the Chairman of the DNC telling a radical anti-American Soros operative that Loretta Lynch was putting in the fix on the Clinton email investigation. Gosh, imagine that.

But Goldman attempts to come to Lynch’s rescue two paragraphs later, working very hard to imply that the official DNC email is just a Russian fake:

Whether the document was fake remains an open question. But American officials at the time did not believe that Ms. Lynch would hinder the Clinton email investigation, and neither Ms. Wasserman Schultz nor Mr. Benardo had any inside information about it. Still, if the Russians had released the information after the inquiry was closed, it could have tainted the outcome, hurt public confidence in the Justice Department and sowed discord.

That first sentence is an outright fabrication. Many experts have examined the raft of DNC emails that have been made public since 2016, and not a single one of those emails has been found to have been fake. That is a disgraceful fake news sentence. Thus, totally expected from a Deep State toady at the New York Times.

Then there’s the sentence about “American officials” at the time not believing that Lynch would hinder the Clinton fake investigation by the FBI: Who was a higher “official” within the Democrat Party than the freaking Chairman of the DNC, the person who is outright telling a Soros lackey that the AG was in fact fixing the FBI’s fake investigation?

The piece just gets more disgustingly biased from there, but you can read the rest for yourselves if you care to do so.

Bottom line: All of this information most likely came from Comey and his lawyers, who are probably the “sources” for Goldman. Here we have Comey under investigation one more time for his serial leaking, a pattern of behavior that William Barr’s DOJ already decided to give the Drama Queen a pass on when he was actually the subject of a criminal referral last year by IG Michael Horowitz.

There is no real doubt that Comey is guilty; the only question is whether or not Barr will ever decide to do anything about it. This is a crime for which hundreds of millions of ordinary Americans would spend time in prison for committing. Why should Jim Comey be any different? Of course, we all know the answer to that by now.

So, once again, William Barr is presented with a prime opportunity to prove that he is indeed dedicated to ending the two-tiered system of justice that Attorneys General of the 21st century have fully implemented in our country. This very, very low-hanging fruit for an AG with good intent.

I wish I had more confidence that Barr would to finally, at long last, pick that low-hanging fruit and do something real.

That is all.

The WaPo Rolls Out a Narrative-Setting Story on the Huber Investigation

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

Are you possibly getting a wee little bit tired of all this WINNING yet? No? – Yeah, you know what’s coming: All major U.S. stock indexes – the NASDAQ, the S&P 500 and the Dow – closed at all-time record high levels on Thursday as the markets recognized the soundness of the Trump Administration’s strategy vis a vis Iran even as the Democrats and their corrupt media toadies raged on about it. And it’s only going to get better today, as pre-market trading futures indicate the markets will open at new record levels later this morning. Truly, it never gets old.

Is Hillary finally off the hook on her fake Foundation influence peddling? – If you believe the Washington Post, you will think she is. The corrupt news fakers at the WaPo reported yesterday that the “investigation” supposedly being conducted by Salt Lake City U.S. Attorney John Huber – a lifelong Democrat and Obama appointee – into the machinations of the Clinton Foundation has ended without result. Thus, if the report, based solely on the Post’s usual anonymous sources, is to be believed, the Huber investigation turns out to have been just another of so many false promises made by the worthless ex-Attorney General Jeff Sessions, who announced his assignment of this task to Huber in early 2018.

It has long seemed obvious to me that Huber was actually doing nothing real on this “investigation;” thus, this report comes as no real surprise. But this is the Washington Post, after all, filing yet another foundation-devoid report based on nothing but “sources” who refuse to be named. As we have seen time after time over the last four years, this sort of report has well over a 50% chance of being a completely false story, nothing more than an attempt by someone who might be a target of the “investigation” to set a favorable narrative in advance of the issuance of whatever findings Huber may decide to produce. We have seen this tactic time after time after time, as corrupt media outlets like the WaPo work hard to provide cover for their Deep State benefactors.

So, it is always wise to wait a few days to see what else might pop up.

It is interesting to note that this story is chock-full of all sorts of qualifiers and weasel words, which indicates the reporter(s) who worked on it are attempting to spin a yarn and want to be able to claim ignorance should future revelations prove it to have been inaccurate. Here are some examples:

  • The very first paragraph says the investigation “has effectively ended with no tangible results, and current and former law enforcement officials said they never expected the effort to produce much of anything.” What that sentence really says is that the investigation hasn’t ended at all and the “sources” on whom the reporter is relying aren’t really sure of what they are telling the reporter. Also, “much of anything” is not nothing, indicating the reporter and his sources believe Huber has found something, and that something has them worried.
  • This is confirmed in paragraph 3, which says, in part: “Current and former officials said that Huber has largely finished and found nothing worth pursuing — though the assignment has not formally ended and no official notice has been sent to the Justice Department or to lawmakers, these people said.” Oh. Ok.
  • Paragraph 4 reinforces that the investigation is not actually closed with this opening: “The effective conclusion of his investigation…” An “effective” conclusion is not a conclusion.

Thus, we see the early paragraphs of the story completely contradict the headline. This investigation – to the extent it is a real investigation – is not closed at all, and someone in the Deep State is worried about that fact.

The next part of any good Deep State cover story is to glorify the bad actors at the DOJ who are most likely also the people leaking this information to the WaPo’s reporter.

  • Paragraph 11 takes care of that task with this: “But from the start, senior officials inside the Justice Department viewed Huber’s task as unlikely to lead to anything of significance…” That would be “senior officials” like Peter Strzok and Andrew McCabe and James Comey and Lisa Page. You know – all those “senior officials” who no longer work at the DOJ.

There is much, much more of this kind of nonsense in this story, including three paragraphs later on that are designed to create sympathy for poor, poor Hillary Clinton, but you get the point: This is just another Deep State narrative creation story dutifully rolled out by the sympathetic corrupt reporters and editors who infest the WaPo and our national fake news media.

Again, I harbor little belief that Huber has been doing anything real in this investigation as it relates to the Clinton Foundation, and am not anticipating any real results from it in terms of doing anything to punish the Pantsuit Princess for her blatant selling of the Secretary of State’s office to the highest bidders. But this particular WaPo story, planted as it obviously has been by Deep State interests, raises the prospect that Huber might be onto something tangentially related to the Clinton Foundation, something that has some Deep State skunk or snake worried.

So, best to wait a few days and see what else develops on this front before just assuming Huber has a big bag of nothing. Because more often than not, narrative-setting stories like this one clearly is turn out to be proven false by subsequent events.

One last thought: If the Pantsuit Princess wants to make one final run at the presidency this year, she will need to be free and clear from accusations of wrongdoing related to her foundation. Just a thought…

Trump is Completely Exposing the Democrats and the Media

Today’s Campaign Update, Part III
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

[Note: The following piece is from contributor Gregg Updike. I hope you enjoy his thoughts on the situation with Iran, and how President Trump is exposing the seditious nature of the Democrat Party and its corrupt media toadies – I know I did.]

While it is great that President Trump has recently taken out a couple of head honchos in the Middle East, can anyone doubt that their #2s (in every sense of the word) won’t just take over and continue their fight?  Had Hitler been successfully assassinated in July 1944, Goering would have taken over, then Himmler…

Point being, just because America took out these leaders, it does not mean Iran and ISIS will stack their bats and quit the field.  This means we need to be even more vigilant against reprisals.  I am in no way saying that Trump is wrong in what he is doing, I’m just saying these “foreign entanglements”, and their consequences, are far from over.  I only hope and pray for our president’s safety, and that he soon removes all our assets (targets) including our embassies from that entire region; let the various factions pound each other into the sand.  ​​

Now that we are oil independent, turn the keys over to Israel and let them have at it; let them either win outright with our tacit support, or continue with the tit-for-tat fighting that has been going on there forever.  I don’t care which route Israel takes, and neither should most Americans.  It would be nice, however, if a greater number of Americans of Jewish descent would actually support Trump and his efforts to defeat Israel’s ancient enemies abroad and renounce and work to defeat Anti-Semitic Democratic Politicians here rather than voting lockstep Democrat for whatever reason.​

Once we are out of the region, our doctrine should be: we will flatten any country that causes us harm – period, end of story, with no “nation building/rebuilding”.  Let Europe, without the US propping up NATO, fend for itself against the threats from the Middle East, Russia, and China.  And finally, we must get out of the UN and get the UN out of America.​​

Apart from the transformation of the courts, and the draining of the swamp via Barr and Durham, Trump’s greatest contribution to America will be the total exposure of the media and the Democratic Party as a cabal of anti-American seditionists.  Sooner or later there will be a Bastille Day of sorts, and the domestic enemies of America as founded will be dealt with.  They will be easy to find as they are doing a wonderful job of exposing themselves for all to see.

They are effectively targeting themselves for destruction by openly rooting for our enemies and against America/Trump. Yet these “journalists” and other “experts” are supposed to be among the best and brightest from American institutions of higher learning; how myopic they all are.  In the interim, Trump is driving them insane with their TDS and making them more and more irrelevant.​​

The MSM is, and has been, working hand in hand with America’s domestic enemies to diminish and destroy our constitution, amendment by amendment for decades.  What makes them think the 1st Amendment will survive to protect them if the “Fundamental Change” that the Obama types want to bring to America ever comes to fruition?​

On the foreign side, the NY Times had a reporter named Walter Duranty espousing Stalin’s communist propaganda from Moscow pre WWII, CNN had an embed in Middle East during Gulf War 1 who refused to be debriefed by the Pentagon upon his return after the first war.  And before and during the second Iraq War, CNN had “exclusive” coverage from their Baghdad “correspondent” who was reporting to the world only exactly what Saddam Hussein and Baghdad Bob allowed him to say.

I also remember how many, if not most MSM TV anchors refused to wear US Flag lapel pins stating they didn’t want to be seen rooting for one side or the other – just the facts, uh, sure, right.  Presidents Wilson (D), and FDR (D) most certainly censored the press during their terms, so there is precedent on the regulation of “Free” (Political) Speech.​

History has shown when there is a “Fundamental Change” i.e. revolution, or invasion of a country, or other takeover, the first people purged are the “intelligentsia” including professors of higher learning and the press… ​​

I’m a capable and productive person who is very adaptable and has worked many blue collar jobs and I can survive in almost any political environment by what I bring to the table.  I don’t believe any of these singularly specialized propagandists, masquerading as “experts” or “journalists” are capable of doing anything but being keyboard warriors, and ignorant social justice and environmental agitators.

They will be the first ones eliminated if and when true socialism/fascism/communism comes to America. The constitution as we know it will be gone, and the country will be ruled by a dictator.  No dictator would ever tolerate any such fifth column activity; it will be brutally put down just as sure as the sun comes up every day.​​

I only hope the “useful idiots” that the left has used for their evil anti-American purpose will someday soon wise up and abandon their (ultimately petty) crusades for their own sake.  Of the 328 or so million people in the US, only about 8-10% are the agitators, the loudmouths, the troublemakers to varying degrees; still that can be as many as ten million people young or old enough to actually be active in all the protests/riots that are sure to come this November when Trump wins a second term in a landslide, and the House flips to the GOP.

I truly believe that the other 90+ percent of the country – if not the world – are fundamentally good people who would just love to be able to live their lives in peaceful coexistence without all this conflict and drama. It’s the 10 percenters that must be defeated and ultimately eliminated for peace to prevail.​

The president has shown great acumen in his ability to be ahead of the curve and has been very successful in blunting and exposing the left’s agenda(s).  His second term, starting with the first sign of violence after the election, must be the direct, forceful and complete stopping of all the paid professional protesters/rioters.  Then he must go after all the domestic and foreign money people funding this Anti-American revolution/coup.

The presidential oath states the president’s first obligation is to protect and defend America and its’ Constitution from all foreign and domestic enemies.  All of the people and entities (including and especially the MSM/SM) who have been engaged in this three plus year coup, Logan Act Violations, aiding and abetting election interference (that was actually done by the Democrats), illegally spying on any American, or allowing/authorizing the same, and who promote the subsequent violence should be charged under the RICO Act.

Libel Suits Targeting Corrupt News Outlets Are Piling Up

Today’s Campaign Update, Part II
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

One of the most pressing issues facing America today is finding some way to hold corrupt and out of control media outlets accountable for their intentional reporting of blatantly false information as part of their tireless efforts to support the agenda of the Democrat Party. Accomplishing this is very difficult given the state of U.S. law and the protections afforded the press under the first amendment.

As things stand today, seeking to punish these corrupt organizations via the libel laws is essentially the only route available to those they have abused, and it is a very tough road indeed. Regardless, some hardy souls and creative lawyers are making the effort.

On Friday evening, GOP congressman Devin Nunes announced he would soon be filing libel suits against both CNN and The Daily Beast, two of the most corrupt purveyors of fake news on the planet. The Daily Beast filed a report earlier this week alleging that Ukrainian operative Lev Parnas, who has been indicted in the U.S. on campaign finance technicalities,  claims that he helped Nunes set up meetings in which he obtained information about Ukraine during a European trip last November.

Nunes says the stories are blatantly and demonstrably false:

“These demonstrably false and scandalous stories published by the Daily Beast and CNN are the perfect example of defamation and reckless disregard for the truth,” Nunes told Breitbart News late Friday night. “Some political operative offered these fake stories to at least five different media outlets before finding someone irresponsible enough to publish them. I look forward to prosecuting these cases, including the media outlets, as well as the sources of their fake stories, to the fullest extent of the law. I intend to hold the Daily Beast and CNN accountable for their actions. They will find themselves in court soon after Thanksgiving.”

Because he has spent the past three years as a leader in the effort to expose the deep state coup cabal within the DOJ and FBI and also led the defense of President Trump during the past two weeks’ impeachment circus, Nunes has been the target of all manner of false reporting by these and other corrupt media organizations. It would be a great blessing for the nation if he could prove his case and win monstrous judgments against both CNN and The Daily Beast.

On Thursday, Covington Catholic High School student Nicolas Sandmann won a crucial judgment in his $275 million libel case against NBC Universal. The judge in that case, U.S. District Judge William Bertelsman, ruled that if NBC’s allegations that Sandmann “blocked” well-known leftist activist Nathan Phillips or “did not allow him to retreat” during their confrontation on the National Mall last year are false, then they are libelous.

As reported by Fox Business on Friday:

Video widely shared online showed Sandmann and Phillips standing close to each other, with Sandmann staring and at times smiling at Phillips as the man continued to beat on a drum. Both Phillips and Sandmann have said they were trying to defuse tensions rising among three groups on a day when Washington hosted both the anti-abortion March for Life, attended by Sandmann and his Covington Catholic High School classmates, and the Indigenous Peoples March.

You will remember that every corrupt fake news organization in America participated in a feeding frenzy following that confrontation in an effort to portray Sandmann and his classmates as a pack of rabid, privileged white kids who bullied a poor “native American” who was just minding his own business when they supposedly descended upon him. We quickly learned – and the video of the incident proved beyond all doubt – that it was in fact the kids who were minding their own business waiting for a bus to arrive to pick them up when Phillips, a notorious leftist agitator with a long history of aggressive behavior, descended on them.

Notably, Judge Bertelsman is also the presiding judge in Sandmann’s similar cases against CNN and the Washington Post, and has also ruled in Sandmann’s favor on these issues in those cases. With any luck, Sandmann will ultmately prevail in all three cases.

Who knows, given that CNN is already a money-losing proposition, maybe a couple of judgments totaling half a billion dollars or so would give its owners at AT&T cause to consider whether their ongoing support for CNN’s Goebbels-like fake news operation is worth bearing the cost and reputational damage.

We can always hope. For America to survive in its current form, we must find some means of enforcing accountability in our intentionally-fake news media establishment. If the libel laws can’t be made to work, some other, probably uglier, alternatives will have to be found.

That is all.

The Horowitz FISA Investigation May Have Found its Scapegoat

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

Details of the Horowitz FISA report are leaking, and it all smacks of a whitewash. – Not that that outcome wasn’t completely predictable, since I warned you to fully expect that in yesterday’s Campaign Update.

Last night, CNN ran with a story – based on leaks no doubt obtained from one of the many ex-FBI snakes now employed by the fakest news channel on earth – proclaiming that Horowitz’s report will make claims of criminal activity by a single FBI lawyer, whose identity is not revealed in the story. Might it be James Baker, the former FBI general counsel now working for CNN as a contributor? Might it be Lisa Page, the paramour and co-conspirator to super-duper FBI stud Peter Strzok? We didn’t know, and CNN wasn’t telling.

What CNN did say about the nature of the potential charges against this lawyer is this:

A former FBI lawyer is under criminal investigation after allegedly altering a document related to 2016 surveillance of a Trump campaign adviser, several people briefed on the matter told CNN.

A little later in the evening, the Deep State mouthpieces at the Washington Post came in with a story of their own, and it revealed more about this lawyer’s identity. According to the Post:

The person under scrutiny is a low-level FBI lawyer who has since been forced out of the agency, according to the officials, who spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss material that has not yet been made public.

Hilariously, after Wolf Blitzer carried a report on this CNN “breaking news,” the fake news channel’s own on-air fake talent studiously ignored it for the rest of the evening. Only in America’s dead profession of journalism would a news outlet work so hard to bury a major scoop that its own people were the first to report.

But the bottom line here is that Horowitz, true to his nature as a career creature of the DC Swamp, has apparently found the perfect scapegoat, a low-level lawyer who has already been forced out of his job and who can now become the sacrificial lamb, the offering to the public in a report that otherwise whitewashes the utter defrauding of the FISA process that we all know was led by Strzok, James Comey, Andrew McCabe and Rod Rosenstein, among others. We know a whitewash is very likely because the Post piece also contains this very disturbing passage:

That conduct did not alter Horowitz’s finding that the surveillance application of former Trump campaign adviser Carter Page had a proper legal and factual basis, the officials said.

Ugh.

The lone bit of potentially good news in all of this actually appears in the CNN report:

Horowitz turned over evidence on the allegedly altered document to John Durham, the federal prosecutor appointed early this year by Attorney General William Barr to conduct a broad investigation of intelligence gathered for the Russia probe by the CIA and other agencies, including the FBI. The altered document is also at least one focus of Durham’s criminal probe.

So, again, if you were expecting gang-buster, myriad criminal referrals to be contained in the report from career apparatchik Michael Horowitz, you would be well advised to cool your jets. While reports from CNN and the WaPo are highly suspect at best and far from definitive accounts of the totality of the Horowitz’s findings, they provide good initial foundation to believe the report will be a classic DC Swamp whitewash.

After all, if the report contained criminal referrals targeting the true major players in all of this, those major players would be working with their toadies at CNN, WaPo, the NYTimes and the networks to plant stories that smear Horowitz and contain more-preferred narratives.

If you want real justice to be levied at the coup cabal plotters, it will either come from John Durham and his investigation, or it will never come at all.

That is all.

Michael Horowitz – America’s Joke-Telling DMV Sloth

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

Tired of all this #WINNING yet? Nope, not a chance. – The S&P 500 set another record close on Thursday, with the Dow Jones Industrials and NASDAQ coming withing a few points of record finishing levels of their own. The Democrat tears are threatening to cause the sea levels to rise at this point.

You seriously could never make this stuff up. – The Washington Post, in its role as mouthpiece for the Deep State, published and then amended a piece Thursday evening that initially contained encouraging news about the potential release of the long-delayed report from plodding, obfuscating, delaying DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz on all the rampant abuse of the FISA system that was engaged in by the Coup Cabal. Attorney General William Barr had told reporters Wednesday evening that he believed the release of the Horowitz Report was, in his words, “imminent,” and the initial version of the Post’s report appeared to back that up.

According to the Deep State toadies at the Post, members of the Cabal are now complaining to their favorite fake news outlet that mean ol’ Horowitz isn’t letting their lawyers drag this thing out even further by delaying offering “comments” on the parts of the report that deal with their clients.

Here’s the key passage:

The Justice Department Inspector General’s office has told witnesses who are set to review draft sections of its long-awaited report on the FBI investigation of President Trump’s 2016 campaign that they will not be allowed to submit written feedback — one in a series of unusual restrictions that some fear could make the final document less accurate, people familiar with the matter said.

As is the case in most inspector general probes, witnesses are being invited to review draft sections of the report and offer comments and corrections, the people said. But — unlike most cases — they are being told those comments must be conveyed only verbally, the people said.

Oh, but it got even better:

Even though Attorney General William P. Barr and other officials have been working in recent weeks to determine what should be redacted from the report as classified or private information, people familiar with the process said that the entire draft document is marked “Top Secret,” so anyone who discusses its contents outside a secure government room could be committing a crime.

And…

Witnesses, they said, are being asked to review their sections in a secure area, after signing nondisclosure agreements, according to people familiar with the matter.

The witnesses have also been told they will not be allowed to remove any notes they make about the document, the people said.

Real Americans who really care about America were very pleased with this development, which appeared to be a good-faith effort by Horowitz and others who control this absurd process to speed it all up and deny the lawyers for all these bad actors multiple more opportunities to gum up the works. Finally, at long last, they thought, we will at least be able to firmly judge whether Horowitz himself is a good-faith actor or just another of the teeming masses of DC Swamp skunks infesting the DOJ. At least we’d finally have that.

But no, not really. Like Lucy pulling the ball away from Charlie Brown at the last second, the Post toadies came in a few hours after the piece was initially published and revised it with the news that a spokesperson for DOJ had just basically said “Just kidding. We take it all back.”

Here’s the revision:

But late Thursday night, Stephanie Logan, a spokeswoman, said the office would clarify to witnesses that they could submit written feedback “consistent with rules to protect classified information.”

“As part of our factual accuracy review, and consistent with our usual practice, we are providing witnesses with the opportunity to review portions of the report that relate to them,” Logan said. “Also consistent with our practice, we undertake every effort to ensure witnesses can provide their comments and we are clarifying to witnesses that they will be able to provide written comments, consistent with rules to protect classified information.”

Image result for lucy pulling the football

So, same old scam, different week. No one knows when the report will be coming out, or even how Attorney General Barr defines the word “imminent.” In the world of the plodding, obfuscating, interminably delaying Michael Horowitz, “imminent” could mean later this month, sometime before Christmas, along about Easter or, sadly, safely after the November 2020 elections have come and gone.

Horowitz is the living incarnation of the joke-telling sloth in the movie “Zootipia.”

You could never make this stuff up in a million years.

That is all.

Broken Bones in Epstein’s Neck? Totally normal. Nothing to See Here.

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

The case just isn’t cooperating with the whole “suicide” narrative. – The Washington Post reported last night that the autopsy of human trafficking pedophile Jeffrey Epstein found “multiple broken bones” in his neck.

That was revealed in the story’s opening paragraph. The Post of course spends the rest of this 25-paragraph piece doing everything it can to continue to prop up the “suicide” narrative. The dying newspaper’s writers and editors do this by carefully focusing only on the broken hyoid bone, which is a part of a man’s Adam’s Apple. The piece never again even mentions the fact that “multiple” bones were broken, nor does it specify which bones those might be. It’s as if that word, “multiple”, has no meaning and is to be ignored.

The writers and editors focus on the hyoid bone because it has been found to have been broken in a small percentage of actual, real hanging cases. The problem here is that, even if the official narrative is to be believed, Epstein could not have really “hanged” himself in the traditional sense of that word. In an actual hanging, the victim would be found dangling with his feet off the ground from a rope that had been strung through a light fixture or otherwise attached to the ceiling of the cell.

Big problem: Epstein’s cell had no means of doing that. The official narrative claims he hanged himself using a sheet he strung through the rail of the top bunk, which sits barely 5 feet off the floor. The narrative contends he then got on his knees and slowly strangled himself using that sheet around his neck. Now, the Washington Post wants you to believe that he was able to kneel forward with such force that he not only strangled to death, he also broke not only his hyoid bone, as well as  “multiple” other bones in his neck in doing so.

How did he do all of that? How did he maintain that intense pressure on his neck – which would have required an intense physical effort – without the human “will to live” impulse kicking in? Did he somehow bind his own hands to prevent that from happening? If not, how did he maintain that intense effort until he actually expired?

The most unintentionally hilarious part of the Post’s article is the claim that the autopsy report has created  “deepening questions around his death.” The problem our society has is that no one at the Washington Post or 99% of our mainstream news media is asking those questions.

There is no demand emanating from the halls of the Post or the New York Times or CNN or MSNBC or any other major “news” organ in America for Attorney General William Barr or FBI Director Christopher Wray or even for whatever moron heads up the Bureau of Prisons to hold a press conference and give our intrepid public watchdogs in the press a full accounting of the progress of the case. They’re all too busy obsessing over Beto O’Rourke’s latest re-boot of his campaign and Bernie Sanders’ interview with Cardi B to be worried about any of that.

The problem, of course, is that our fake news media organs have invested the last three years covering up for the seditious actions of the Obama-era FBI and DOJ, in the process building a narrative that these federal agencies are to always be trusted and can do no wrong. They’ve spent the last three years trying to brainwash the public to take whatever the likes of James Comey and Peter Strzok and Andrew McCabe and Rod Rosenstein have to say as the gospel truth – even going so far as to hire the disgraced McCabe as a paid contributor at CNN – and as a result, it has become incredibly hard to now just turn on a dime and express some healthy skepticism about the veracity of the official narrative.

In other words, once a news agency has willingly turned itself into a government lapdog, it’s pretty hard to un-train that behavior. Maybe impossible.

And so we get reports like this one from the Washington Post.

That’s where we are in our society today.

That is all.

No, Pete Buttigieg is Not Trying to Become our “First” Gay President

Today’s Campaign Update, Part II
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Doesn’t anybody read anymore? – The latest Twitter uproar today is how openly-gay Democrat presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg told an interviewer from Axios Sunday that America has likely already had multiple gay presidents:

Buttigieg didn’t want to name names of those past presidents he personally suspects might have been gay, but honestly, I hadn’t really thought it was any big secret. I mean, doesn’t everyone know by now that at least one former U.S. president, James Buchanan, was almost certainly a closeted gay man? In fact, an accurate reading of history tells us he wasn’t even closeted.

Back in March, the Washington Post, in an early effort to award a campaign contribution in-kind to Buttigieg, ran a piece by Ezekiel Emanuel, brother of ex-Chicago Mayor/Obama flunky Rahm Emanuel, titled “America has already had a gay president.”

Emanuel goes into great detail about how Buchanan’s contemporaries knew he was a homosexual, and how the media of the day provided him cover. Here’s one of the key passages:

Before becoming president in 1857, Buchanan openly lived with William Rufus King, who at various times served as senator from Alabama, ambassador to France and, finally, Franklin Pierce’s vice president. They met in Washington as young politicians, and lived together on and off for more than 16 years until King’s death from tuberculosis in 1853. Buchanan’s biographer, Jean H. Baker, believes that his relationship with the Southerner King partially explains why this Pennsylvanian was a “doughface,” a northerner who did not oppose slavery. Indeed, Buchanan explicitly urged the Supreme Court to deliver an expansive ruling in the Dred Scott case — which denied freed slaves American citizenship and forbade Congress from regulating slavery in U.S. territories — and lobbied Congress to admit Kansas as a slave state.

Oh.

But wait, there’s more:

How do we know Buchanan and King were a couple? In 1844, after King assumed his posting in Paris, Buchanan wrote a letter to a friend, complaining about being alone and not being able to find the right gentleman partner:

“I am now ‘solitary and alone,’ having no companion in the house with me. I have gone a wooing to several gentlemen, but have not succeeded with any one of them. I feel that it is not good for man to be alone; and should not be astonished to find myself married to some old maid who can nurse me when I am sick, provide good dinners for me when I am well, and not expect from me any very ardent or romantic affection.”

Oh.

And, so what? Well, here’s the thing: It is a fact that being a semi-openly gay man in the mid-19th century turns out not to have been a disqualifier for someone who wanted to pursue public office. Those sad strictures arose only later in our nation’s history and are nothing to be proud of.

Now, Buttigieg seeks to become [maybe] the second gay U.S. president, and the media does him and the voters a real disservice by constantly focusing on his sexual status. Buttigieg should not become president because he’s an extreme leftist and has been a poor mayor in his only elective office, and who he happens to be married to is not relevant to the decision.

But you can bet the media will continue its hyper-focus on Buttigieg’s sexuality. They obviously plan to try to shame the American public into thinking we are somehow obligated to elect our “first gay president” in 2020, just as they brainwashed so many into thinking they were obligated to elect our first black president in 2008.

That shaming effort worked hugely for Barack Obama, largely because he would in fact be our “first” black president. Where Buttigieg is concerned – as the candidate himself freely admits- he would not only NOT be the nation’s “first” gay president, but likely wouldn’t even be its second.

Read a book, people.

That is all.

Led by Nadler, Despicable House Democrats Hold the Nation Hostage

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

Strategery, Democrat style. – So, first you create a Constitutional crisis by taking a vote of the House Judiciary Committee to hold the Attorney General of the United States in contempt over an absurd claim that he “lied” to the Committee a month ago (he didn’t), and that he won’t release a full, unredacted version of the Mueller Report to congress so the Democrats can leak parts of it to their pals at the New York Times (he can’t do that without committing a felony himself).

After you’ve done that, you send Jabba the Nadler out to tell the breathless, fawning fake news media that the country is in a Constitutional crisis:

Oh, wait, wrong clip. Here you go:

See how that works?  Odd, huh?

Let’s all remember that every step of what has happened with Jabba The Nadler’s committee this year was all pre-planned way back in November, just days after the election. That was when Sr. Editor at The Federalist Mollie Hemingway happened to be sitting across the aisle on an Amtrak train from Jabba, and overheard him having a loud telephone conversation in which he bragged about his and Nancy Pelosi’s and Adam Schiff’s plans to do everything you’ve seen taking place this year. She wrote this prescient piece on November 7, yet all of her “colleagues” in the fake news media continue to pretend this is all taking place organically, because the Democrats just can’t help doing what they’re doing because of the Orange Man Bad in the White House.

None of this is organic. Never forget that everything today’s Democrats do is Kabuki theater designed to deceive their shamefully dimwitted and uninformed voter base. They believe most Americans are hopelessly dense, clueless and uninformed of actual facts, and believe they can just lie to them with impunity as a means of obtaining and maintaining political power. Sadly, they are often correct.

It’s also important to remember these things as well:

  • Barr has already release about 95% of the Mueller Report to the public – Democrats say this is not enough;
  • Barr has already made 98% of the Mueller Report available for Democrat members of congress to view in a secure room without the ability to make copies of it that they could leak to the press. Not one Democrat has taken advantage of viewing it in the 3 weeks that it’s been available;
  • Barr legally cannot make 100% available to the public because some of the material in the Report is protected grand jury information. He knows if he allows skunks and snakes like Jabba and Adam Schiff and Eric Swallwell to have the full report, the full report will appear on the front page of the New York Times and the Washington Post the next morning;
  • The courts have consistently held that grand jury information must be withheld from the public in order to protect the rights of persons who offered testimony but were not pursued by said grand juries. In pursuing this information for the purpose of leaking it to the fake news media, congressional Democrats are actively attempting to harm U.S. citizens who are innocent of any crime.

That’s the reality of this silly situation, which has been intentionally and completely artificially constructed out of whole cloth by despicable congressional Democrats and their even more-despicable buddies in the news media.

Of course, by going down this particular road they have essentially left President Donald Trump with no choice but to exercise his right to executive privilege over not just the Mueller Report, but over any and all documents related to it. This is a right the President could have exercised throughout the abusive Mueller Witch Hunt, but chose not to do so in the name of cooperating with the Chief of the American Gestapo.

That the President now feels the need to exercise that right as it relates to the House of Representatives tells us exactly how abusive the despicable Democrats have become in their desperate effort to smear Attorney General William Barr.

One final reminder: The Democrats and their media toadies are desperate to smear Barr in the public consciousness because Barr has repeatedly promised to get to the bottom of the Obama Administration’s massive spying activities targeted at the Trump Campaign throughout 2016. They all know that if he succeeds in that quest, people are going to prison.

So this is not just a fight for raw political power: For many of these despicable people, it is a fight for survival. These are the reasons the Democrat Party is basically holding our nation hostage.

It is a fight they must lose if our nation is to maintain a system of real justice.

That is all.

Watch Nancy Pelosi Talk Gibberish at a Washington Post Event

Today’s Campaign Update, Part II
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Regular readers know I like to say that if Democrats did not exist, the most creative fiction writer alive today could never in a million years make them up. No one personifies this principle of American life more starkly than our own favorite Speaker of the Gibberish, er, of the House, San Fran Nan Pelosi.

The latest example of our mush-mouthed Speaker talking slurring gibberish in public came Wednesday morning at some event hosted by the Democrat Party toadies at the Washington Post. Pelosi was doing her best to make some point about the supposed dastardly deeds of President Donald Trump, but all she succeeded in doing was making a point about her own creeping dementia and illiteracy. Here’s a clip, courtesy of Ryan Saavedra at Daily Wire (Transcript follows below).:

For those of you who still like to read and those of you who watched that clip and have no earthly idea what Mz. Mushmouth just tried to say, I have performed the immense personal service of transcribing her remarks verbatim. Here you go.:

“And ah have sshed the prezdent is goading us into … wants to goad us into impeachment because that..he knows w,uh, do I that (inhale) uh, muh, that’s uh…not a good thing for the counwro I know maybe he knows that but…he knows that I think that, let’s put it that way. Huh knows that I think that. But the fff, fff, the point is, is that every single day…whether it’s obstruction, obstruction, obstruction, obstruction of having, you know, people come to the table with facts…ugnoring subpoenas and oist…every single day the prezdent is making a case…he’s make…he’s becoming self-impeachable in terms of some of the things he is doing.”

Clear as mud, right? Right. Even the extremely Democrat-friendly hacks over at Slate haven’t got he slightest clue what she meant by this statement.

Now, laugh all you want at the Speaker’s inability to form complete sentences or express cogent thoughts without a script (or even with one, for that matter), but think about this: This incoherent apparent half-wit is two heartbeats away from becoming president.

Still laughing now? Yes?

Ok, so am I.

That is all.

The Media Mounts a Final Desperate Effort to Protect Barack Obama

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

The fake news media is going into overdrive. – Over the last 48 hours, we have now had the three fakest fake news outlets push their toadyism on behalf of the panicking Democrats and Deep State to a new level. On Wednesday night, the New York Times put the deep state spin on the Obama FBI’s spying operations against the Trump Campaign; Thursday night saw the release of CNN’s latest fake poll, a desperate effort to prop up the flagging campaign of Irish Bob O’Rourke; and Friday afternoon, the reliable old Washington Post jumped in with an op/ed from the execrable hack Paul Waldman.

Waldman’s piece is an obvious effort to set the narrative for the deep state as Attorney General William Barr pursues his own investigations into the origins of the Obama FBI/DOJ/CIA spying operations against the Trump Campaign. The goal of this narrative is to smear Barr – who, it is now obvious, is our nation’s first real, functional attorney general concerned about the rule of law in over a decade – in an effort to render any findings he makes as illegitimate, nothing but the work of Donald Trump weaponizing the Department of Justice to go after his opponents.

It is, in other words, the ultimate case of the media/Democrat favorite tactic of Projection: The tactic of accusing your opponents of doing exactly the things you yourself are in fact guilty of having done.

This is the beginning of a desperate effort by the Democrat/media propaganda complex to provide one final layer of cover for the head honcho who actually did deploy the FBI and DOJ and CIA to attack his opponents. It’s an operation designed to protect the guy who oversaw the entire operation and actively guided it – America’s Worst Mistake, Barack Hussein Obama. For those of us who have been paying close attention to all of the information that has come out into the public domain, Obama’s fingerprints have always been all over this illegal spying operation mounted against the opposition party’s presidential campaign.

The spying on the Trump Campaign was mounted as a counterintelligence operation by the FBI, recommended first by CIA Director John Brennan, authorized by FBI Director James Comey and managed by Deputy Chief of the Counterintelligence Division Peter Strzok. As a matter of routine, the President of the United States is given weekly briefings of the FBI’s counterintelligence operations. At the very least, Obama was fully aware of everything that was going on, a reality borne out in myriad text messages between Strzok and his paramour Lisa Page.

All of this and so much more is a matter of public record already – it is not in doubt. The fake news media has done everything it can to keep the public living in blissful ignorance about it all, but more and more Americans become aware every day, and that trend will speed up massively with the release of the pending Horowitz reports and the coming declassification of all of the underlying documents by President Trump, which will also begin to take place in the coming weeks.

So Barr must be smeared – it’s the media’s only remaining shield for Obama His Own Self. And it isn’t just Barr – other key players must and will be smeared as well.

You should expect the Post or the Times to quickly begin mounting a similar smear campaign against DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz, since he is supposed to issue his own reports on a) the rampant Obama-era abuse of the FISA process, and b) the leaking habits of ex-FBI Director and current Teen Drama Queen James Comey in the coming weeks. Why? Because all the perceived enemies of the Deep State/Democrat Party must be smeared. Their reputations must be besmirched as a matter of protecting the media’s puppet masters.

What about Senate Judiciary Chairman Lindsey Graham? You should expect to soon see the media mounting a smear campaign against him as well, since he is promising to use his committee to mount its own investigation into the origins of the spying operation. Graham, a life-long bachelor, has long been the subject of rumors that he is a closeted gay man. Already, we are seeing despicable cretins like Rosie O’Donnell, Alec Baldwin and Chelsea Handler launching gay smears at him via their own Twitter accounts. You should expect to see the Usual Suspect media outlets – The Post, the Times, CNN, MSNBC, etc. – to soon start running stories pushing rumors about Graham, stories they would never even consider running about any Democrat.

Yes, it is despicable. Yes, it is beneath contempt. But hey, this the fake news media and Democrats we’re talking about here. You expected something else?

That is all.

The Deep State Cabal Remains Very Much Alive

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

If you thought the shutting down of the Mueller Witch Hunt meant that the Deep State Cabal working within the Department of Justice was dead, well, think again. – Last night’s highly-coordinated leak reports by both the New York Times and the Washington Post show that there are still plenty of skunks and snakes operating within the walls of the DOJ. Hell, Robert Mueller himself and Rod Rosenstein both remain DOJ employees. So no one should be surprised at all that both of these mouth organs for the Deep State simultaneously issued highly-misleading reports timed perfectly to undermine Attorney General William Barr as he testifies on Capitol Hill today.

Based solely on unnamed sources “within the Justice Department,” the stories contend that despite his full cooperation with and review of the four-page letter AG Barr initially release summarizing the final Witch Hunt report, Mueller days later sent a letter of his own to the “Justice Department” complaining that Barr’s summary letter “did not fully capture the context, nature, and substance of this office’s work and conclusions.”

Oh. So, what does that word “fully” and those words “context, nature and substance” mean, specifically? Because those particular qualifiers really could mean pretty much anything, positive or negative. Neither the Times nor the Post could be bothered to tell us, despite the supposed existence of their highly-placed “sources.” Because of course they couldn’t. Imparting full, truthful information is not the purpose of these stories; creating a damaging narrative to Barr is the purpose.

Naturally, this inflammatory allegation appears in the first two paragraphs – and in the headlines – of the Times’ and Post’s stories.  But you have to plow way down into the bowels of the stories to find the real story here, which is that Barr is not really who Mueller is irritated with.

It turns out that the real source of Mueller’s frustration is the most likely suspect of all – our fake national news media, exemplified by these two fake newspapers. But you have to get all the way down to paragraphs 10 through 12 of the Post‘s fake story to find that out:

“A day after Mueller sent his letter to Barr, the two men spoke by phone for about 15 minutes, according to law enforcement officials.

In that call, Mueller said he was concerned that media coverage of the obstruction investigation was misguided and creating public misunderstandings about the office’s work, according to Justice Department officials. Mueller did not express similar concerns about the public discussion of the investigation of Russia’s election interference, the officials said. Barr has testified previously he did not know whether Mueller supported his conclusion on obstruction.

When Barr pressed Mueller on whether he thought Barr’s memo to Congress was inaccurate, Mueller said he did not but felt that the media coverage of it was misinterpreting the investigation, officials said.” [Emphasis added]

An attempt led by Juan Guaido, the true President of Venezuela, to free that starving nation from the brutal regime of Nicolas Maduro via a national uprising was taking place all day yesterday. This is a major story with gigantic implications for our country and the world. But the coverage on MSNBC and CNN was wall to wall about this fake Times/Post story.

We have reached the point with our news media now that is roughly equivalent to about 1937 Nazi Germany, a point at which our major news organs are fully under the control of and working for a single political entity and now make literally no attempt at all to hide that fact. This story, this despicable hatchet job by these two fake newspapers, in blatant coordination with Democrats on Capitol Hill and the leftist TV fake news channels is the clearest proof yet that our national news media is virtually 100% fake and can no longer be trusted.

Understand that they are doing everything they can to smear Barr now because they see him as their mortal enemy. With the pending release of the Horowitz Report on FISA Abuse and likely start of prosecutions of the real bad actors to follow, these fake news media outlets know that many of their own reporters and editors, who were active participants in Mueller’s failed coup attempt, may well become defendants themselves. Congressional Democrats and their staffers who also worked hand-in-glove with the Deep State Cabal have similar concerns.

These people are cornered animals, and they will do everything they can to diminish Barr’s standing in the public eye, and have frankly been doing so for weeks already.

Last night was just the latest escalation in their smear campaign. Barr will need to have very thick skin, because there will be many more attacks to come, and they will only get worse.

That is all.

Tired, Exhausted and Embarrassed? Vote for Joe Biden Because He’s Just Like You!

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

George Will is tired and exhausted and embarrassed, and wrong one more time. – The Washington Post’s pet fake conservative and baggage carrier for the D.C. Establishment was so utterly, completely, abjectly wrong about every aspect of the 2016 presidential contest that you might have expected him to stay completely away from trying to predict anything about the 2020 race. But if you had that expectation, you found yourself surprised on Sunday, when the purveyor of the Inside-the-Beltway conventional wisdom slung some of that stuff out for the Post’s dozens of remaining subscribers about Creepy Uncle Joe Biden.

According to George Will – no doubt fresh from testing his talking points at his latest dinner party with the Beltway’s upper crust, all of whom listened and nodded sagely and said something like “you are so refreshingly wise, what’s in that yummy-looking croissant you’re nibbling?” – the former Vice President is “well-positioned to offer chaos-weary voters a rest.” See, George Will, a man who has spent as much time out here in Flyover Country in his adult life as Chelsea Handler has spent sober since age 14, is tired and exhausted, and he thinks the rest of you are as well. Because George Will is tired and exhausted, and all the guests at his DC dinner parties are tired and exhausted, he thinks Americans are ready to choose a president who is as tired and exhausted as they are:

“Biden, whose smile is Jack Nicholson’s without the naughtiness, is not angry. His sporadic attempts at seeming so are transparently, and engagingly, synthetic. Neither, however, are most Americans angry. Rather, they are embarrassed and exhausted. Biden has a talent for embarrassing himself, but not the nation, and he probably might seem to weary voters to be something devoutly desired: restful.”

Hilarious. Just as New York Times pet fake conservative David Brooks told that paper’s audience in 2008 that they should vote for Barack Hussein Obama – America’s Worst Mistake – because of the “crease of his pants,” George Will wants the Post’s audience to support Joe Biden because of his Jack Nicholson smile without the naughtiness or anger.

See, George Will, who coincidentally is 77 years old, mere months older than Biden himself, is not just tired, but he’s embarrassed, too. Because he and all of his DC dinner party friends are embarrassed by President Donald Trump, he expects all of you to also be embarrassed; therefore, you must want to elect an even more embarrassing president in 2020. And hey, who is more embarrassing than the creepy old guy who has spent the last half-century groping women and children at public events?

George Will proved in 2016 that he has his finger on the pulse of the American electorate just as surely as Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez understands math, and this column is just the latest in a long line of examples proving he suffers from the elitist myopia that infests the DC establishment. This is what spending every waking – and sleeping – hour inside a liberal, globalist, big-government echo chamber will do to a guy or gal.

Certainly, millions of Americans remain utterly embarrassed that Donald J. Trump is the President of the United States. We know those people as “admitted Democrats” and “Democrats who pretend to be Republicans, i.e., Never Trumpers.”

The rest of the people are the people we know as “normal Americans.” These are the vast majority of people in this country, none of whom are embarrassed at all about record low unemployment for Hispanics, African Americans and women, paying lower taxes, 3.2% economic growth and being at relative peace in the world compared to the 28 years that came before 2017.

These are the people who have normalized Trump’s often-erratic behavior internally, the people who see headlines about the latest sort-of-nutty thing the President said or tweeted and think “hey, that beats headlines about hundreds of U.S. soldiers coming back from the Middle East in body bags or congress having to extend unemployment benefits for the 27th time or a president going on his 4th or 5th global apology tour.”

But George Will doesn’t know these people – these people, who live in the vast, overwhelmingly “red” middle of our nation, never get invited to DC dinner parties, you see. George Will regularly chats with Morning Joe and Mika, not Joe and Jane Blow from Ypsilanti, and Morning Joe and Mika are tired and exhausted just like George Will.

By coincidence, the latest ABC/Washington Post poll, released over the weekend, has Biden leading the Democrat field with just 17% support. And that’s among purely Democrat voters. How 17% of Democrats is going to translate into 51% of all Americans, George Will doesn’t try to explain, other than to point to that “Jack Nicholson smile” that all of you tired and exhausted and embarrassed people out there in Flyover Country are going to settle for.

Somehow, “Vote for Joe Biden Because He’s Tired and Exhausted and Embarrassing” doesn’t strike me as a winning campaign slogan.

That is all.

Barr’s Release of the Mueller Report Closes Act I of Trump’s Three-Act Play

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

Today, the curtain closes on Act I. – Attorney General William Barr will release what the Washington Post describes as a “lightly redacted” version of the Mueller Report this morning, and Democrats are already going berserk. Because of course they are. They’re Democrats – that’s what they do.

Prominent congressional Dems like Jabba the Nadler, Mad Maxine Waters, Da Nang Dick Blumenthal and Bug-Eyed Adam Schiff all rushed to the nearest TV camera last night to squeal about the fact that Mr. Barr will hold a press conference prior to releasing the report, something every other AG in American history would also have done. The Democrat talking points – naturally echoed by prominent fake journalists like the New York Times’ Maggie Haberman on Twitter – contend that “the Mueller Report should speak for itself” and that the AG is attempting to usurp congress’s solemn duty to interpret the report for the American people.

Meh.

Here is the real reason why the Democrats and their fake media co-conspirators are going nuts about Barr’s press conference: Because oily Rod Rosenstein will be standing there right next to him in full endorsement of the process Barr has taken with the report. Also because Barr will no doubt inform the American people on live television that both Rosenstein and Mueller his own self participated in making the proper redactions in the report before it became public.

The Democrats and media who have spent the better part of three years outright lying every day about their Russia Collusion fantasy can’t stand to have this open, transparent conveyance of real information about Mueller’s report. After all, Rosenstein was their guy, the fixer, the man who appointed Mueller in the first place for no justifiable reason, the enabler who wrote not one, but two scoping memos authorizing Mueller to take his most-likely illegal Witch Hunt in any direction he wanted to pursue.

Oily Rod was the guy who held those previous Friday afternoon press conferences defending the various indictments of Russian ham sandwiches, doing his best to pretend that the spending of a couple million dollars creating a bunch of fake Twitter accounts was somehow an existential threat to the greatest and strongest nation ever conceived by mankind. Rosenstein was the guy who refused to intervene early on when it became obvious Mueller was stacking his staff with a bunch of corrupt Obama/Clinton activists rather than a balanced team of professional lawyers, the “supervisor” who never lifted a finger to curb Mueller’s rampant, heinous employment of Gestapo-like tactics.

For two solid years, Rod Rosenstein was the man who the lying Democrats and fake news media assured all Americans was a stand-up guy, a true hero who was doing his best to rid the Republic of the Bad Orange Man in the White House. To have this same man, this ostensible leftist hero, now stand before the assembled TV cameras in tacit endorsement of Barr’s interpretation of the Mueller Report and acknowledgement of his and Mueller’s own roles in making the redactions from it in order to protect the rights of American citizens who were interviewed during the grand jury processes and other perfectly valid reasons amounts to a complete and total debunking of the fake media’s fake narrative on this fantasy.

Democrat politicians and fake journalists are the equivalent of political vampires: Transparency is their sunlight; truth is their garlic; they recoil from honesty exactly the same way Count Dracula recoils from the Christian Cross.

Regardless of the squealing from the collection of Star Wars bar scene characters who currently chair committees in the House of Representatives, Barr will hold his presser at 9:30 ET and release the redacted report at 11:00 ET today, because that is what he has promised to do. This is a man who has made a habit of doing exactly what he promised congress he would do in his confirmation hearings since taking office, a real Attorney General who is playing everything strictly by the book. If that makes congress unhappy, so be it – Barr doesn’t appear to much care what politicians of either party think.

The positive thing for the fake news media is that CNN and MSNBC will temporarily regain some of the massive audience loss they have suffered over the past month, since their Russia Collusion fantasy came up a crapper. After all, the Mueller report was written by a bunch of Democrat activists, and will certainly portray President Trump in the most negative light possible, so we will have a couple of weeks of media and Democrat-fed hysteria over the revival of their Russia Collusion corpse before the dead story gets overtaken by other, real current events.

For real Americans who actually love their country, the best part about finally getting to this day is that it in reality closes the curtain on Act I of what will ultimately become the three-act play of the Trump presidency. The curtain will next come up on Act II, which will begin with the issuance of the report by DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz on the rampant abuse of the FISA process that took place throughout 2016 and into 2017, as Obama officials within the DOJ and FBI furiously tried to prevent Trump from winning the election and then attempted to stage a coup d’etat after he took office.

From there, Act II will proceed to the revelation of what, if anything, Salt Lake City U.S. Attorney John Huber has been doing over the last 18 months, since former AG Jeff Sessions claimed he had assigned Huber to investigate all the FBI/DOJ Cabal’s shenanigans during the 2016/17 time frame. After that revelation, Act II may or may not proceed to prosecutions of some or all of the Cabal’s participants. That will again be up to Mr. Barr.

Act III will dawn in August 2020 with the re-nomination of President Trump by the GOP and the nomination of one fraud or another by the Democrats in a race that will result in Trump’s re-election. That final act will continue through the entire four years of Trump’s second term in office, and will conclude with a final scene of hundreds of pussy-hat-wearing activists and minor Hollywood celebrities screaming and crying on the National Mall on January 20, 2025, exactly as the play opened on January 20, 2017.

This unlikely tragicomedy was apparently all preordained, and no amount of bluster and squealing from the stuck pigs who run the Democrat Party and our fake news media can change the inexorable progression of its plot lines. So the best thing the rest of us can do is just sit back and enjoy the spectacle of it all.

After all, are you not entertained?

That is all.

The Week in Review: The Perils of Biden and AOC

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

[The week just past as chronicled on the @GDBlackmon Twitter feed.]

The week began with AOC getting history wrong – because she always gets history wrong – and just went downhill from there.:

A parade of women had just started to emerge from the closet to complain about Creepy Joe Biden’s fondling of them, but the reliable lapdogs at the Washington Post were already on the job providing cover for him.:

On Monday, AOC kept herself busy surveying the price of food at La Guardia Airport while waiting to fly on a carbon-spewing airliner – you know, the kind of thing she plans to eliminate with her Green New Deal. (Hint: She got the price of the pastry every bit as wrong as she got the history of the 25th Amendment.):

As the second woman came forward to complain about Creepy Joe Biden, it wasn’t real hard to predict what was still to come.:

It was April 1, and our erstwhile ex-FBI Director and current Teenage Drama Queen thought he would play an incredibly narcissistic practical joke. Nobody laughed.:

Robert Wilson posted a fantastic graphic here. Note the expansion of that natural gas line over the last 15 years – it’s why your air is so much cleaner today than it was 25 years ago.  Fracking says, “You’re welcome, America!”:

As President Donald Trump threatened to close the southern border with Mexico due to the ongoing invasion from Central America, our nation’s fake news media focused on what was really, really, really important to vegans and snowflake freaks everywhere.:

The hypocrisy of the lunatic left, part 29,282.:

With the Mueller report issued and exonerating President Trump, the evil minions at CNN found their already-terrible ratings in free fall. How would this cable joke survive without the captive audiences in our nation’s airports?:

Cool. No use wasting any time.:

While women continued to come forward to complain about his handsy habits, Joe Biden continued to get a free pass from the fake news media related to his real scandal.:

Meanwhile, the news-fakers over at CBS News were working diligently to paint human traffickers in a glowing light. You seriously cannot overstate that a raging dumpster fire our national news media truly is.:

So…damn…awesome.:

So. Damn. Awesome, Part II from the same speech.:

It’s a clown car. Literally, a car filled with circus clowns, led by Jabba the Nadler.:

Can you blame her?:

What in the hell is wrong with Sen. Mike Lee that he would vote against this? You can’t write it off to his supposed Libertarian “principles,” since the filibuster rule was enacted in the 1830s by racist southern Democrat slave owners as a means of preventing the senate from abolishing slavery. The crap this guy and Rand Paul pull on big votes like this is maddening.:

If you don’t follow the hilarious Babylon Bee on Twitter, you are really missing out on the fun.:

No comment necessary.:

And, as Wednesday drew to a close, the news fakers at the New York Times did their duty to support the Democrat narrative by rolling out yet another heinously fake story. Because of course they did.:

Speaking of the New York times, its’ fake “journalists” need to broaden their horizons.:

Oh, hey, we’re up to seven now…:

Despite all the media disinformation and misinformation, the Trump 2020 landslide kept building …:

…and building…:

…and building.:

You go first, Jake.:

Just when you thought the Democrat 2020 presidential field could not get any worse, the most disgraceful pathological liar in congress proves you wrong.:

Now, if we could just ban the U.S. media from covering the British royal family…:

Seriously, where have these news fakers been?:

Look up the word “slimy” in your Funk & Wagnall’s dictionary, and you’ll find a photo of this guy next to it.:

The perfect Twitter meme…:

The perfect Twitter video meme…:

…and I’m just going to end it with this.:

The Times and Post go Right Back to Faking the Russia Collusion News

The Afternoon Campaign Update
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Man, it’s like 2017 all over again. – With readership no doubt drastically declining in the wake of the issuance of a Mueller report that clears President Donald Trump, the news-fakers at the Washington Post and the New York Times decided last night to go back to their tried and true tactic of publishing fake reports based on unidentified and possibly even non-existent “sources.”

The Times started the night’s fake-fest with a front page story headlined “Some on Mueller’s Team Say Report Was More Damaging Than Barr Revealed”.

Wow! “Some”, huh?  Good ol’ “Some”? You mean the same “Some” on Mueller’s team who have been the fake “source” for all of the fake news stories the Times has published related to the Russia Collusion fantasy over the last two and a half years?  That “Some”?

Oh, but it gets better. Here’s how the lead paragraph in the story informs the reader who this “Some” really is:

“Some of Robert S. Mueller III’s investigators have told associates that Attorney General William P. Barr failed to adequately portray the findings of their inquiry and that they were more troubling for President Trump than Mr. Barr indicated, according to government officials and others familiar with their simmering frustrations.”

Ah, according to “government officials” – Adam Schiff and Jabba the Nadler, perhaps? – and “others familiar with their simmering frustrations”, is it? Who might those “others” be? Staffers for Adam Schiff and Jabba the Nadler, maybe? Note that we now have anonymous sources quoting even deeper anonymous sources. Maybe we should call them “double secret” anonymous sources.  Holy crap.

Or maybe these “sources” really don’t exist at all – there is literally no way for the reader to know. Why, you just have to trust the honesty and professionalism of the news-fakers who wrote and approved this story, even though they are the very same writers and editors who have published so many other blatantly false, easily-debunked fake news stories throughout the Trump Administration.

My goodness.

Not to be outdone, the news-fakers at the Washington Post belched out an equally ambiguously-sourced story of their own that I’m not even going to go into in any detail because it is a waste of my time and yours. Suffice it to say that it’s the same basic plot as the Times story with the same failure to identify anyone who served as the reporters’ actual source for the fairy tale.

Back to the Times story for a second: Rush Limbaugh landed on one of the most outrageous pieces of it during his first hour today that deserves repeating here: “It was also unclear how widespread the vexation is among the special counsel team, which included 19 lawyers, about 40 F.B.I. agents and other personnel.”

Think about that for a second:  FORTY FBI agents were tasked to the Mueller fake investigation, an effort Mueller and Rod Rosenstein and FBI Director Christopher Wray knew was fake from day one. FORTY FBI agents who could have been tasked to preventing terrorist attacks; FORTY FBI agents who could have been tasked with identifying potential school shooters before they killed a bunch of kids; FORTY FBI agents would could have been investigating something real, like the mob racket known as the Clinton Foundation. FORTY FBI agents who could have been working on putting deep state creeps like Peter Strzok and John Brennan and James Clapper and Jim Comey in prison.

Instead, they were all working on helping Mueller and his team of Clinton/Obama hacks dummy up a case for impeachment of the sitting, duly-elected President of the United States.

I focus on this because it was just a week ago that I wrote a piece here titled “The Misplaced Priorities of the FBI and DOJ Protect the Deep State Seditionists,” and here we have the New York Times delivering demonstrable proof of exactly how that works.

Thanks for proving my point, you news-faking hacks.

That is all.

The Democrat/Media Propaganda Complex Moves the Goal Posts in the Wake of Mueller’s Failed Coup

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

The talkin’ points, they are a-changin’… – Ok, so here’s the drill: Now that Robert Mueller has failed to carry out the coup d’etat that the Democrats and the entirety of our fake news media have hoped and dreamed of for two solid years now, the goal posts have shifted.

Now, Robert Mueller is a bad guy, a guy who both Bug-eyed Adam Schiff and Jabba The Nadler have promised to subpoena to appear before their own committees, which will now lead the Witch Hunt into the future at the behest of San Fran Nan and the editorial boards at the New York Times and Washington Post. Furthermore, the Attorney General of the United States – William Barr – and his Deputy Attorney General, Rod Rosenstein, are now the two newest subjects to be portrayed as Russian agents by our fake news media. A regular Boris Badenov and Natasha Fatale (all you Millennials will have to Google that reference), these two.

That nasty odor you found wafting from your television screens anytime you were tuned into MSNBC or CNN this weekend was a combination of sulphur and desperation. These people are literally doing the devil’s work against our nation’s survival, and their rising panic level came across the tube in spades as the weekend progressed, peaking on Sunday afternoon with the realization that Bob Mueller, the man on whom they had counted to be their collective savior, turned out to be not quite up to the job.

So the talking points had to shift, the goal posts must now move, and they all, acting almost as a single evil organism (I smell a remake of “The Blob” coming soon), latched onto the insignificant fact that Mueller did not outright “clear” President Donald Trump of “obstruction of justice” as their next thin lifeline. Since Mueller did not “clear” Trump, but the Attorney General and Deputy Attorney General (a Trump hater who we now know without any doubt at all literally attempted to frame the President) did, why, they must be acting on behalf of PUTIN!!!!!!

See the logic? No? Ok, neither do I.

Look, these are Democrats and Democrat media activists we’re talking about here – logic has no place in anything they do. If these people were vampires (and how can we really be sure that Brian Stelter and Katie Tur aren’t?), logic would be their garlic and truth their sunlight.

But, just for the sake of argument, the glaring problems with their new line of talking points are obvious:

  • Robert Mueller was acting as a prosecutor. Prosecutors do not “clear” people – they either find evidence of wrongdoing that would support a prosecution, or they do not. Mueller did not.
  • The entire case for “obstruction” against President Trump originates with a presumption that he fired bad cop James Comey – an action even Rosenstein supported, and which every Democrat in Washington had called for – in order to prevent Comey from investigating Trump’s “collusion” with Putin.
  • But Mueller found zero evidence that any such “collusion” took place – said so right there in his report.
  • So, how in the hell would anyone “obstruct justice” by trying to cover up a crime that, by the prosecutor’s own admission, DID NOT HAPPEN?

Thus, the lack of any evidence of obstruction is not a mere opinion expressed by Barr and Rosenstein, it is a metaphysical fact.  Period. Hard stop.

Let’s just close with film of the celebration in the White House last night…

The Witch Hunt is Dead! Long Live the Witch Hunt!

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

The Witch Hunt is dead! Long live the Witch Hunt! – In case you are wondering why every Democrat from Hawaii to Maine is screaming for Attorney General William Barr to “release the full, unredacted Mueller Report!”, it’s because they know that will never happen.

They know that Mueller’s report – assuming it is a fullsome narrative and not just the listing of indictments, prosecutions and deferrals required by the governing statute – will certainly be chock-full of classified information and other passages that the FBI and intelligence agencies will want to redact under their handy “sources and methods” rubrick.  They also know that AG Barr is an old pro, a guy who is going to play this situation strictly by the book, which likely means he is going to compile his own summary report that fully eliminates such concerns and release that to congress and the public instead.

Thus, their cynical and unfillable demand for the “full, unredacted report” will then be transformed into claims that Barr, the disciple of George H.W. Bush who most of them were praising just a few months ago, is now just a Trump toadie who is engaged in a coverup, claims that the Democrats plan to keep pounding right on through Election Day, 2020.

This claim of coverup will become a major part of the Democrat justification for mounting their own Witch Hunts that will consume most of the time over the next 18 months of at least three House committees:  Judiciary, Intelligence and Oversight. Party leaders feel they have no choice but to keep all of this anti-American nonsense alive in order for one of their array of freaks, miscreants, commies and outright nutjobs to have any chance of defeating President Donald Trump at the ballot box next year.

So, if you are frustrated that the Democrats who have spent the last 20 months guaranteeing us that Gestapo Chief, er, “Special Counsel” Mueller has “got the goods” on the President and several members of his family now refuse to accept Mueller’s finding that there was no “Russia Collusion” or “obstruction of justice” and allow our country to return to some sense of normalcy, well, this is why. Yes, it is demented; yes, it is depraved; yes, it is utterly despicable and un-American behavior, but hey, this is the Democrats we are talking about here.

What did you expect?

So, let’s review the Mueller Witch Hunt from a statistical perspective:

  • Money spent – well in excess of $30 million
  • Number of days – 675
  • Number of indictments – 34
  • Number of indictments against Americans – 8
  • Number of indictments against Russian ham sandwiches Mueller knows will never come to this country to stand trial – 25
  • Number of indictments against Concorde Management, whose trial Mueller continues to desperately postpone because he has a big bag of nothing against them – 1

MOST IMPORTANTLY…

  • Number of indictments related to “Collusion” or “Obstruction” – ZERO, ZIP, ZILCH, NADA

And what of our fake news media, this collection of propagandists for the Democrat Party who spent 20 months coordinating their messaging with the DNC on this matter, promoting the “Russia Collusion” fantasy like Nabisco promotes Vanilla Wafers?

In case you missed it, MSNBC’s resident conspiracy theorist, Rachel Maddow, was so upset by Mueller’s “no collusion” conclusion that she literally wept on national television last night:

Isn’t that glorious?

You can be sure that there was plenty of weeping going on behind the scenes over at CNN and the New York Times and the Washington Post and ABC, NBC, CBS as well, as all the fake-newsers saw their vaunted Ship of Mueller run aground on the sharp shoals of reality. But will there be any accountability for these people, even the slightest, meekest admissions of their abject, overwhelming wrong-ness for the last 20 months?

Oh, hell no. Of course not. Nobody at any of our major media organizations maintains the slightest concern about getting anything right anymore – they just care about getting Trump. So all we will see out of these despicable hacks – the ones who don’t break down in tears on live TV, anyway – will be a change in talking points to make it seem like they had predicted this outcome from Mueller’s operation all along, and that the “real action” is over in congress and the Southern District of New York U.S. Attorney’s office.

And remember: The reason they will do this is because… wait for it…THAT’S WHAT THEIR DEMOCRAT MASTERS TELL THEM TO DO.

Once you realize and accept that, it all makes perfect sense.

That is all.

The Final 5:00 Friday Document Dump by Robert Mueller Has Arrived

The Evening Campaign Update
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

The “Mueller Report” – whatever that even means – was delivered to Attorney General William Barr today. 

As has been his habit, Mueller took this latest major step in his Witch Hunt late on a Friday to ensure it will dominate the conversation on all the Sunday morning TV talk shows. That’s really all you need to know about whether or not this entire process is a politically-motivated sham. It is.

So, what next? Nobody really knows. It’s likely that right now, AG Barr doesn’t even know what he will be doing with this report, if anything.

By law, the matter is solely in his hands now. Yes, the House of Representatives unanimously passed a meaningless resolution demanding that Barr release the report in its entirety to the public. But that ain’t gonna happen under any circumstances.

Why? Because the report is very likely chock full of classified information and other passages that DOJ and the FBI and other intel agencies will want to heavily redact.

The only thing Barr is required by law to deliver to congress is a cataloging of the indictments and prosecutions conducted by Mueller and his team of Obama/Clinton hacks, along with a listing of “declinations”, i.e., individuals or other entities they decided not to pursue.

That’s it. Frankly, it’s more than congress deserves in this instance.

Indeed, it is entirely possible that that is all that is in Mueller’s actual report – he is under no legal requirement to provide anything more than that to Mr. Barr.

Barr could quickly issue some kind of statement to the press in which he summarizes the report’s content to inform the public whether or not Mueller claims to have found any wrongdoing on the part of President Trump. It seems likely that Barr would want to do that, assuming Mueller’s report contains any such claims.

Leftist pundits have been warning for weeks that their disciples should not expect to get much satisfaction out of Mueller’s report, despite the 20 months shameless, irresponsible speculation that he somehow “had the goods” on the President and/or members of his family.

My guess? Barr will issue some sort of statement before Monday, and we will see tons of #fakenews stories in the New York Times and Washington Post making all sorts of unfounded insinuations based solely on unnamed “sources”.

Within a week, the full report will be leaked to one of those newspapers if it contains damaging accusations against President Trump. If it doesn’t, AG Barr will eventually either release a heavily-redacted version of the full report, or a fairly extensive summary of it that has been fully reviewed and signed-off on by the FBI, CIA and other intelligence agencies.

The next 48-72 hours will be very, very interesting.

That is all.

Robert Mueller’s Big Bag of Nothing Springs Another Leak

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

Oh, that report was fake news? You don’t say. –  After having spent the last year and a half slandering Donald Trump, Jr. and his father, President Donald Trump, alleging that telephone records somehow showed that Trump, Jr. had called his father just prior to his famous meeting with several Russian nationals at Trump Tower in October of 2016, the news fakers at CNN scrambled to cover their filthy tracks yesterday. The implication of course being that then-Candidate Trump was fully aware in advance of this meeting and approved of it, something President Trump has consistently denied.

In a story hilariously headlined as being somehow “Exclusive”, CNN meekly informed its tiny online audience that “Senate investigators have obtained new information showing Donald Trump Jr.’s mysterious phone calls ahead of the 2016 Trump Tower meeting were not with his father, three sources with knowledge of the matter told CNN.”

Oh.  You don’t say. Tell us more.

“Records provided to the Senate Intelligence Committee show the calls were between Trump Jr. and two of his business associates, the sources said, and appear to contradict Democrats’ long-held suspicions that the blocked number was from then-candidate Donald Trump.”

You have to love the phrasing there. To be clear and actually honest – in direct contrast to CNN’s daily practices – it isn’t just the “Democrats” who have been promoting the massive lies about what was a simple and completely legal meeting in which Trump, Jr. and a few others working on the Trump Campaign thought they might get some intel on their Democrat opponents. CNN digital and on-air personnel have been happily and incessantly doing the same for a year and a half now.

And it hasn’t been limited to CNN, oh, no. We’ve seen the same sort of yellow fake journalism about this meeting from the New York Times, the Washington Post, MSNBC, ABC, CBS, NBC and the whole of the fake news media establishment – a literal orgy of fake news gluttony about a single 40-minute meeting, the type of which any presidential campaign is going to conduct with outside sources several times a week.

Meanwhile, these same fake media outlets have to literally be forced into superficially mentioning the fact that the Pantsuit Princess’s campaign and the DNC shelled out MILLIONS of dollars paying the Perkins Coie law firm and Fusion GPS to coordinate with Russian agents to compile the fake Trump Dossier that has served as basically the sole basis for the last two years of endless and mindless investigations.

Bug-eyed Adam Schiff, the main “Democrat” referenced in the CNN report as having tirelessly pushed this fake story, must be devastated. Remember, when Donald Trump, Jr. testified behind closed doors before the House Intelligence Committee last year, details about his testimony were leaked to CNN while the hearing was still ongoing. The initial CNN report aired just minutes after Schiff had mysteriously left the hearing room for a few moments. Such a coincidence there.

In case you missed it, acting Attorney General Matt Whitaker told the leering press on Monday that he has been fully briefed on the Mueller Witch Hunt and believes it will be wrapped up soon. This came as a big shock to all the leftwingers who still cling to the belief that Mueller is going to just keep going throughout the duration of the Trump presidency, but I told you that it was pretty obvious last September that Mueller was in the process of slowly winding the thing down.

The reason why Mueller is likely to wrap it all up soon and issue his final report is exemplified by the collapse of this fake Trump Tower Meeting story: He is holding a big bag of nothing when it comes to  “Russia Collusion” and that bag has a bunch of leaks. The entire thing is a fantasy constructed by the Democrats and the fake news media, and, as Alan Dershowitz pointed out earlier this week, Mueller has yet to indict any American on any charge related to what his mission was supposed to be.

You can’t indict a sitting President on smoke and mirrors, and at the end of the day, that is all Mueller has. Time to wrap up this stain on our nation’s history. Long past time, in fact.

It’s 100% sure to work. – The simplest and surest way to get the Democrats and fake news media to stop trying to normalize pedophilia and infanticide in our society would be for President Trump to endorse both practices.  Then, all the Democrats and fake reporters would immediately be, like, totally against them. It’s a foolproof plan.

Ocasio Cortez Update! – She’s like an 8 year-old who just completed her first piano recital:

So now we know she’s pretty adept at reading a script prepared by others. Cool. Now, if she can master the practice of taking both sides of every issue depending on what audience she happens to be talking to, she’ll be just like a real member of congress.

Fake News, WaPo Headline Edition. – Check out how the news fakers at the Washington Post attempted to turn the Virginia Democrats-supporting-infanticide incident into a negative for the Republicans, and Ben Shapiro’s astute response:

Hey, you knew Planned Parenthood had to be pushing the infanticide bills. – Another bit of news from our You Don’t Say! department:

Some things in life are just too predictable.

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.

Fresh out of new Narratives, the New York Times Does a Remake of “Impeachment”

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Ok, so, that Kavanaugh smear didn’t work, so the fake news media needs a new narrative. – Meet the new narrative, same as the old narrative.  The “Kavanaugh is a gang rapist!” narrative was a miserable failure; the “Taylor Swift endorses Phil Bredesen!” narrative crashed up on the shoals of disastrous poll results; the “Trump misreported his taxes!” narrative held public attention for about, well, no time at all; and the “It’s gonna be a BLUE WAVE!!!!!” narrative is showing clear signs of being more like a Tidy Bowl toilet flushing.  What’s the fake news media to do?

Why, make up a new narrative, that’s what.  The trouble is, the fake news media is a lot like Hollywood:  It cycles through new scripts so rapidly that it has run fresh out of ideas.  So the obvious answer?  Do a remake!

That’s right:  Just as Hollywood recently brought us completely unnecessary remakes of films like “Ben Hur” and “A Star is Born,” the newsfakers at the New York Times this morning are treating us to a completely unnecessary remake of “Is Trump on a Collision Course With Impeachment?” . Isn’t that wonderful?

*sigh*

With Robert Mueller systematically winding down his “investigation”, Democrat hopes of gaining a majority in either house of congress rapidly fading, and exactly ZERO legitimate justification for removing a president from office having been identified by Mueller or anyone else, this reboot of the “impeachment” narrative will also have a very short shelf life.  So expect the newsfakers at the New York Times and the rest of our fake news media to be bringing us yet another narrative sequel, reboot or remake soon, because that’s all they got left.

Elsewhere, Andy McCarthy, one of just two writers at The National Review still worth reading (the other being the great Victor Davis Hanson), has a piece out this weekend titled “Who Will Save the Democrats From Their Leaders?”.  In the piece, McCarthy systematically disassembles the utterly corrupt Eric Holder piece by piece in a way that is a true work of art.  It’s a fantastic read that I highly recommend to everyone.

Here is one outstanding passage to whet your appetite:

“But if there is anyone who knows about “going low,” it is Mr. Holder. He is, after all, the first attorney general in American history to be held in contempt of Congress.

And low is exactly where Holder — along with Hillary “No Civility Unless We Win” Clinton and the rest of the social-justice arriére-garde — has taken a once-great political party.

In a better time, we would not be talking about Eric Holder. He would be dismissed as a fringe radical who endorses forcible, extortionist tactics against political adversaries (and then, in familiar Holder fashion, spends the next day pretending he didn’t say what he said). In a better time, we would be asking why anyone would care what Eric Holder says, about anything.

But today, Holder is important. Today, he is a mainstream Democratic leader.”

Go read it.  Trust me, it’s worth 5 minutes of your time.

And this from the #NeverTrump fantasy world of fake conservatism…Washington Post pet fake conservative lapdog Kathleen Parker has a new piece up this morning in which she blames President Donald Trump (I never tire of typing those three glorious words) for her and other Americans drinking too much alcohol.  I swear I don’t make this stuff up.  Here’s a quote:

“Lately, at least from my perch on the porch, the evening cocktail has become less an aperitif than a medicinal slug made necessary by the alternative of ripping off my face. To bear witness to These Times In Which We Live is to go insane, join a cult or pour your favorite poison.”

Ms. Parker obviously has a severe aversion to all this #WINNING.

Oh, hey, that’s just how Joe is. – And while we’re at it, let’s not leave Joe Biden out of all the Trump-bashing fun.  Creepy Ol’ Joe had this to say about the President of the United States of America (something Joe Biden will never become) on Saturday:

“He is just trashing American values the way he talks about people, the way he makes fun of people, the way he denigrates folks.”

Ok, now, to refresh everyone’s memories, this is the exact same Joe Biden who:

  • Gleefully participated in the slandering of Robert Bork;
  • Cheerfully helped organize the smearing of Clarence Thomas;
  • Said Barack Hussein Obama was a great African American presidential candidate because he’s “clean” and “articulate”;
  • Said that “In Delaware, the largest growth of population is Indian Americans, moving from India. You cannot go to a 7-11 or a Dunkin’ Donuts unless you have a slight Indian accent. I’m not joking.” and
  • Has spent the last 30 years getting caught on film creepily fondling and otherwise violating the personal space of all manner of women and even Chris Coons’s teenage daughter.

Someone needs to remind Mr. Biden that he lives in a very, very fragile glass house, and throwing rocks from within it is a really bad idea.

Sorry Nancy, Your Coveted “Blue Wave” Just Isn’t Building

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Democrats – if they didn’t exist, no one in their right mind would dream of making them up. – In an interview on Monday, San Fran Nan said she agrees that, where the Democrats are concerned, “it’s time for new blood and we should move on.”  That’s the good part.  But in her next breath, she promised to continuing clinging to power so long as Donald Trump is President: “to have no woman at the table and to have the Affordable Care Act at risk, I said, ‘As long as he’s here, I’m here.”

Republicans everywhere popped open the champagne at the prospect of continuing to have the past and possibly future Speaker of the House as fodder for their campaign ads.

Hey, if he won’t get down into the ’30s on his own, we’ll just put him there. – The fake news hacks at CNN loudly trumpeted their new “poll” on Monday, a “poll” which purports to show President Trump’s public approval rating at just 38%.  That all looks pretty disturbing for the President until you look into the bowels of how the “poll” was conducted and realize that it included just 25% Republicans in its sample of self-described “registered voters.”

Had the poll instead included around 34-35% Republicans, which is what it should have done, its result most likely would have shown the President’s approval at about 42-43%, which is pretty much where other polls of registered voters are putting it these days.  Meanwhile, the most accurate poll during 2016, Rassmussen, which is also the only poll taking the time and effort to survey “likely” voters, pegs Mr. Trump’s approval rating at 48%.

Thus, what we clearly have with the CNN poll was yet another example of a fake news organization dummying up some more fake news on what was otherwise a fairly slow news day.  Sadly typical.

But CNN’s not alone.  We saw ABC and the Washington Post issue a similarly faked-up poll on the generic congressional preference question at the end of August.  This poll pretended to find that the Democrats suddenly had a 14-point lead among registered voters on that question.  Really?  Can that be right?

Well, given that other recent polls of registered voters (Economist/Yougov and Reuters/Ipsos) pegged the Democrat edge at 9 and 5 points, probably not.  Then when you consider that the two recent polls on this question that look at “likely voters” (Rasmussen and Grinnell/Selzer) show the Democrat edge barely present at 4 and 2 points, the ABC/WaPo poll becomes a clear outlier.

A real polling organization, when its “sample” (assuming there really was a sample) produces a result so clearly outside of any notion of reasonableness, might be expected to take a second look at things before rushing to publish.  But ABC/WaPo and CNN are not real polling organizations – they are ostensibly “news” organizations, and they unfortunately seem to produce these polls in an effort to manufacture news, not to truly inform the public.

You may remember that ABC/WaPo are also the same two media organizations that dummied up a poll just two weeks prior to Election Day 2016 that pretended to show Hillary Clinton holding a 13-point lead over Donald Trump.  When even the Nate Silvers and New York Times‘s of the world guffawed at that silly result, I predicted what its new margin would be each and every day over the next ten days, and got it on the nose every day but one as the fake poll’s margin very predictably narrowed to within its margin of error the Friday before the votes were cast.  I was able to do that because the poll’s results were pretty clearly tailored to make news, not to accurately gauge the state of the race.

The thing about polls these days is that the legitimate polling organizations continue to struggle with how to actually obtain a decent sample that really is reflective of society at large.  Some of these groups, like Rasmussen, appear to have a pretty good handle on things, and some of them keep monkeying around with their methodologies.  The one disturbing generic congressional ballot poll by a legitimate organization recently is the one by Emerson College last week that arrived at a 13-point edge for the Democrats.

Emerson describes its methodology as follows:

“The sample consisted of registered voters, n=1,000, with a Credibility Interval (CI) similar to a poll’s margin of error (MOE) of +/- 3.2 percentage points. The data was weighted by ethnicity, age, party affiliation, region and mode. It is important to remember that subsets based on gender, age, party breakdown, ethnicity and region carry with them higher margins of error, as the sample size is reduced. Data was collected using both an Interactive Voice Response (IVR) system of landlines only (n=500) and an online panel provided by Survey Monkey (n=500).”

Who knows if that convoluted method renders a result that can be trusted?  Then again, after the absurdity of the polling results in 2016, it’s an open question whether any of these poll results really produce anything worth reading, other than providing, on average, some general trend.

Right now, the trends are a) President Trump’s public approval rating is right where it has been throughout this entire year, and b) the Democrats have a modest edge in the generic ballot question, but not a big enough edge that would produce their much-coveted “blue wave” come November.

The Campaign Update told you way back in December that there would be no “blue wave” in this election, and nothing that has happened since that time has changed that general outlook.  Lots can happen in the 8 weeks remaining until Election Day, but the reality is that public attitudes appear to be pretty much set.

All of which means that we should expect the Republicans to pick up somewhere between 2-5 net seats in the U.S. Senate, and the Democrats to gain seats in the House, but not enough to saddle the nation with San Fran Nan as Speaker of the House one more time.

Just another day in just ignore all the fake polls America.

NBC Admits Media Bias, but only in a Highly-Biased Way

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Even the fake news media’s pieces admitting media bias subconsciously display the media’s bias. – NBC has a piece at what it calls its “Think” website this morning that actually admits that the media is biased against conservatives.  Yippeee!!!  Happy days are here again!!!!  All the fake reporters have realized the error of their news-faking ways and are going to start reporting real news again!!!!

Ok, don’t get too excited.  This isn’t that, not remotely close to it.

The piece is actually just another hit piece on President Trump and his supporter base, which continues to grow in spite of all the #fakenews hysteria generated by outlets like NBC and CNN, written by an inveterate “Never Trumper” named Evan Siegfried. Siegfried bills himself as a “Republican strategist,” though the origins of that tag remain somewhat mysterious.

Among Siegfried’s previous writings is a piece he penned in May 2016 for the dying anti-Trump rag the New York Daily News titled “Why I’m With Her: A Republican strategist explains why he will vote for Hillary Clinton over Donald Trump.”  Oh.  That guy.

So you end up with a piece in which the President of the United States is accused of “weaponizing” the media’s own bias, which somehow ends up meaning that anyone who supports the President of the United States of America is living in a “post-fact world.”  This is #NeverTrump dogma, Book 1, Chapter 1, Verse 1.

Siegfried even goes to the brain-dead length of comparing the media’s treatment of President Trump to a couple of incidents in which New York City’s commie Mayor Bill DeBlasio complained about negative media coverage.  This of course ignores the reality that the NY City media’s coverage of DeBlasio has been overall the sort of fawning groupie coverage the media always gives to Democrats, while President Trump somehow remains a fairly popular POTUS despite vicious media treatment that has been 92% negative according to the Media Research Center.

He does at least correctly point out that the media’s treatment of Mitt Romney and George W. Bush was also absurdly negative and vicious – he could have gone all the way back to Nixon and Reagan to reinforce that point – and points out that the media’s long history of blatant, absurd bias against Republicans is the main reason why almost no one trusts the media to tell a story straight anymore.  But then he destroys all that solid historic foundation work by then going into attack mode on the President and anyone who supports him, in the process revealing his own anti-Trump hatred.

Here are some things he doesn’t point out about the media’s ridiculous behavior towards this President:

  • Neither the Washington Post nor the New York Times currently employs a single commentary writer who takes a pro-Trump view.  Everyone of their “conservative” writers are fervent #NeverTrumpers like Siegfried.  This is an unprecedented circumstance;
  • Just last week, one of the NYTimes’s fake conservative writers, Brett Stephens, admitted he was employed there “to oppose the President.”
  • The week-long media-fed hysteria characterizing the President’s private meeting with Vladimir Putin as being somehow unprecedented (it wasn’t) and even “treasonous” (it wasn’t);
  • The New York Times is still paying an anti-Trump reporter who was recently discovered to be trading sex for the illegal leaking of classified information.  She has simply been reassigned;
  • The Media Research Center – which Siegfried himself cites – has compiled a list of dozens of outright false reports filed by myriad media outlets, all negative to Mr. Trump, since Trump was was sworn into office.  Only a small handful of those outright false reports have resulted in negative consequences for the reporters and editors who allowed them to go to press;
  • Siegfried doesn’t mention the obvious, blatant message coordination that takes place between leading Democrats and pretty much every national media outlet on a daily basis.  Rush Limbaugh puts together montages of all these people parroting not just the same positions on issues, but the exact same words 2-3 times every month.  He could do one every day if he wanted to;
  • He doesn’t mention the obvious media practice of dummying up false stories based on “anonymous sources” every time there is a news development that is positive to the President.  John Kelly is about to celebrate his one-year anniversary as Trump’s Chief of Staff, and we have been through at least a dozen rounds of “John Kelly hates the President and is about to resign” media-generated rumor mongering since he took the office last August.  That appears to be the NYTimes’s  and CNN’s default fake story whenever they can’t find a porn star or centerfold to talk about;
  • And of course, Siegfried doesn’t make note of the fact that so many of these “journalists” make a practice of making their outright hatred for this President known to the world on their Twitter and/or Facebook accounts every day, which is the real key to everything here.

If it has done nothing else positive for our society, social media has served as the great unmasker of these people pretending to be unbiased “journalists.”  In times past, the American public had very little knowledge of the personal lives and attitudes of the reporters and editors who shaped the news every day.  That has all changed now, thanks largely to their 280-character daily rants on Twitter.

The truth is that we Trump supporters consider most of the media establishment to be #FakeNews today because we now know them so much better than we ever have before.  And that familiarity breeds contempt.

Just another day in fake news media America.

That is all.

Horowitz Report Drops Today – Teen Drama Queens Prepping Their Defense

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

[Note:  The wonderful photoshop that accompanies this piece was constructed by a loyal Campaign Update reader who asked to be credited only as  dagalas.]

Hey, y’all, so far this week, President Donald Trump has gotten the Democrats and the fake news media to endorse:

– War games
– Nuclear weapons
– Refusing to negotiate with despots (where were they when Obama did that Iran deal?)
– Neverending war on the Korean peninsula

And it’s only Thursday morning!

PSA: Those loud noises you are hearing right now are just the sounds of liberal heads exploding…. – Two Norwegian lawmakers formally nominated President Trump for the Nobel Peace Prize on Wednesday.  The two are of course described as “right-leaning” members of Norway’s “Progress Party, which advocates for limited immigration and shrinking the size of government.”  Gosh, such radical ideas, wanting to preserve your country’s native culture and holding down the size of government.  If we didn’t have biased, stupid media, we would have no media at all in America.

And speaking of biased, stupid, fake news media…

“Ok, the President had a really great summit in Singapore, sadly.  So, here’s what we do:  ABC, you go with the fake report about Michael Cohen turning on Trump.  CBS, you toss out the false report about Sarah Sanders resigning.  CNN, well, you have the porn star franchise, so get on it!” –  Seriously, it’s like clockwork:  Any time President Donald Trump (I still never tire of typing those three words) has a domestic or international triumph, all the fake news media outlets start pumping out fake news stories designed to distract attention.

If that seems like a coordinated plan to you, that’s because it is a coordinated plan.  This is what your fake news media is in today’s world:  They aren’t “news” organizations, they are propaganda arms of the Democrat Party.  It’s been this way for quite some time now – at least since 1992, but really since shortly following World War II.

It’s become more amplified since November 2016 because the people at the top of these organizations are increasingly desperate.  With every successive act of #Winning, President Trump reveals the DC “Establishment” – mainly Democrats but also a raft of disloyal Republicans – to be a decades-long utter fraud perpetrated on the American people.  Tuesday’s election results, in which a challenger loyal to the President – Katie Arrington – knocked off longtime DC swamp creature Mark Sanford in South Carolina in a very surprising upset, only served to heighten the fake media’s panic.

And guess what?  Today is the day the next report from DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz drops.  Just imagine the frenzied flood of freakin’ news-fakery we are about to be treated to in the wake of that document going public at 3:00 ET this afternoon.  It will be glorious.

Several readers have asked this week what we should expect from this next Horowitz report.  My only honest answer is, hell if I know.  There are reasons to be concerned about what it might – or more likely, might not – contain, and reasons to be optimistic about it.

First, it is key to remember that the scope of this report is limited:  It only covers the DOJ/FBI conduct of its blatantly fake investigation into the Clinton email scandal, an investigation that we already know was little more than a desperate coverup designed to keep Barack Obama’s favored candidate from going to federal prison.  Horowitz is still working on a more comprehensive, subsequent report whose scope is far broader and will cover all of the DOJ/FBI efforts to fix the 2016 election and spy on the Trump Campaign, transition team and administration.

The main reason to be concerned about today’s report is that Horowitz has no doubt been placed under massive pressure internally at DOJ to mealy-mouth his findings.  We’ve already seen one report that the report will find ex-FBI Director and current teenage drama queen James Comey to have been “insubordinate”, but probably will not find him to have committed any crimes.  If that account – based of course on anonymous sources only – is accurate, then this report is a major fraud given that we already know beyond any shadow of a doubt that Comey has committed multiple perjuries before congressional committees and illegally leaked classified information to the New York Times.

So, right off the bat, we will have that barometer to inform us conclusively on the relative usefulness of this report.

The next big concern is how much of the report will be redacted.  We must remember that bad actors like Rod Rosenstein have had their greasy fingers all over this report for the past three weeks as it has gone through its review process.  Under Rosenstein’s incredibly corrupt leadership, DOJ has become notorious for redacting vast passages of documents under claims to be protecting national security, only to have it revealed later that the redacted information was merely embarrassing to the Department.  If Rosenstein has had his way with this report, we can expect that less than half of it will actually be open for public review.

But there are also reasons for optimism that this report will at least move the ball forward towards cleaning up some of the DOJ corruption and getting the process of perp-walking and prosecuting the key bad actors underway:

  • Horowitz himself has already agreed to testify before the House Oversight Committee next Monday, and that testimony will be offered under oath and threat of prosecution for perjury.  If he has been forced to make inaccurate changes to his report and the Republican members of that committee have the presence of mind to ask the right questions (we know the Democrats will only try to cover things up) then we can expect Horowitz to offer honest answers.  Or we can hope he will, anyway.
  • Horowitz is considered by most everyone to be one of the good guys, for good reason.  Yes, he served during the Obama Administration, but he was constantly engaged in fights with Obama’s corrupt attorneys general, who did everything they could to deny him the right to conduct his oversight responsibilities.
  • Then there’s the fact that, as noted above, this report has been circulating within DOJ for three weeks and also reportedly shared with the congressional “Gang of 8” – which includes notorious hacks like Dianne Feinstein and Adam Schiff – and none of it has been leaked to the press.  You can be damn sure if the original text of this report exonerated James Comey or Andrew McCabe or Peter Strzok or Lisa Page or any of the other bad actors within the FBI and DOJ, that news would have long ago appeared in the New York Times or Washington Post.  The fact that that has not happened gives us cause to hope that Horowitz has done his job.

A word of caution:  Reports like this are never fully satisfying to anyone.  Regardless of how hard Horowitz might have tried, it is literally impossible to fully keep political motivations out of any 500 page report produced in Washington, DC.

It is also very likely that those of us hoping for full justice will be initially mislead by what might seem to be inconclusive findings or mealy-mouthed language in the report, only to find out later that it is in fact extremely damaging to the subject.  It’s key to remember that Horowitz himself is not the prosecutor here:  His job is to simply lay out the facts, though he does have the power to make criminal referrals if he so chooses.

Once the report is out, the job of prosecuting the bad actors falls to the relevant U.S. attorney.  So, while you might initially be disappointed by language that, say, finds “insubordination” or “ignoring of departmental rules” by a James Comey or Andrew McCabe, we may discover later on that a prosecuting attorney finds that to be evidence of criminal conduct.

Bottom line:  I don’t know what’s in this report yet, but we’ll all have a pretty good idea by about 5:00 this afternoon.  Stay tuned.

Just another day on the poop is about to hit the fan America.

That is all.
