Seeking to capitalize on the Republicans’ disarray, public cruelty and Trumpitis, the Democratic Party is gearing up for the Congressional elections of 2018. Alas, party leaders are likely to enlist the same old cast and crew.
The Democratic National Committee and their state imitators are raising money from the same old big donors and PACs that are complicit in the Party’s chronic history of losing so many Congressional, gubernatorial and state legislative races—not to mention the White House.Read More
In a bizarre twist in the Steve Bannon White House puppet master narrative, Bannon called up the editor of the liberal magazine The American ProspectTuesday afternoon and proceeded to give him what appears to be his unvarnished opinion on many things. On the other end of the line was Robert Kuttner, who then proceeded to write a story about his 25-minute conversation with one of the key, but elusive figures in the Trump White House. As Kuttner tells it, Bannon called him apparently following up on a column Kuttner had written on how China was profiting from the U.S. and North Korea’s nuclear squabbles. Read More
Here’s something many of you may not know is going on that is very irresponsible. Journalists and reporters use Twitter alot to get information out to the public as quick as possible. Yesterday, Donald Trump tweeted out how he went to visit Alexandria gunshot victim, Congressman Scalise, in the hospital. Trump said Scalise was in rough condition and to pray for him. Well, reporter, Jim Acosta, sent out a tweet saying the President never visited Scalise at the hospita!. This was read by thousands and even Jake Tapper took Acosta’s word and reported the findings. Well, it turns out Jim Acosta was wrong, and therefore Jake Tapoer. But instead of tweeting out a retraction saying he was wrong, Mr. Acosta just deleted the tweet and called it a day. No retraction, yet tens of thousands of people thought Trump just lied. Luckily real reporters who still believe in fairness captured an image of the tweet in error and tried to spread the correct version of events around while also publicly shaming Acosta. The fair reporters weren’t conservatives, but progressives. They just believe in the integrity of their professionRead More
The mainstream media has gone on and on for weeks, even holding panels on it, that the President was going to use his Executive Privilege to block Comey from testifying to the Senate on certain things or not at all, really ginning up the drama. Well, I reported via the New York Times, but I knew anyway through instinct, that he was not going to invoke it. Still the MSM persisted, kind of like Clinton. Well today, the White House stated that Trump would not be invoking the privilege. Now, Im sure we will hear all the dastardly reasons why hes not blocking Comey. Predictable and. SadRead More
On the one hand it’s good to see the media doing some adversarial reporting again after being so dormant for a long time, but on the other hand I think it will be short-lived or until someone palatable is in the White House. Right now theyre experiencing a renaissance because they’re feeding a bloodthirsty public’s hatred for an unpopular President.
Nevermind that the majority of reporting is shoddy at best. What they’re relying on are anonymous sources within the Intelligence Community that can’t be verified or autgenticated, with an axe to grind against an adversarial Trumo. Then the media just riffs on the morsels its given basically turning the reporting info gossip, innuendo, and entertainment. And the gullible public just eats it up without questioning anything. It’s hard to tell what to believeRead More
Of course she is being investigated! You post a piece of performance art (????) where you’re showing the president being decapitated, then expect the secret service to investigate you. Just cause you/re on the left doesn’t make you immune to what happens to those on the right who depict a president hanging from a noose. At least Ms. Griffin was spared a visit from the secret service unlike Ted Nugentt when he made his faux pas against Obama. And I’m sorry but the constant, relentless visceral hatred for this President set the stage for Ms.. Griffin to think she could get away with this kind of indulgent behavior. What’s particularly sad is that this routine hateful behavior by the left opened Ms. Griffin to the mistaken belief that she was safe to commit this piece of stupidity only to witness her political sister group, her friends, and her colleagues rise up, condemn her, then devour her whole taking her completely by surprise. Poor thing, I guess. She might as well have not even apologized. I wouldn’t have. Her idol, Joan Rivers, wouldn’t have, Joan also wouldn’t have given that embarrassing press conference blaming Donald Trump for her now present woes. What did he do except send off one his tweets defending his family having to see him die an Isis style death. I actually thought his response was rather muted considering his style. But he didn;t “break” her. Nor did his tamily who naturally stood up for their father. No, Joan Rivers, more than likely, would have come out bashing the political left, her friends, and her colleagues for turning their backs on her when she needed them most. Talk about a bunch of pussies. But really, when are celebrities going to learn the lesson that you can’t casually make fun of or try to make a statement about a president using violence or their death as the backdrop? This happens with every presidency and the celebrity is always left shellshocked that the secret service is knocking at their door. This is standard operating procedure for a sitting President. Oh, and Kathy, kudos from learning from your so–called role model Hillary Clinton by using every trick in the blame game book to try and get off the hook.Read More
People were asking me to write a story about the Comey thing when the news first broke, but in my opinion the whole affair is generally unexciting. The only thing that’s interesting to me about him getting fired is that there might be a bunch of FBI leaks in the future due to a shift in power dynamics; anyone who’s getting worked up about anything else is probably either a Russiagate nutter or one of the remaining true believers who are under the delusion that Trump hasn’t fully capitulated to the deep state. The #TrumpRussia dimwits are upset because this could mean a problem for the Trump-Russia election collusion investigation, which was never going to lead anywhere anyway because the allegations of collusion were only ever designed to pressure Trump into falling into line with the neocon establishment. The loyal Trumpsters are stoked because they think they’re going to get a firebrand rebel to replace Comey who’ll finally Lock Her Up, but that won’t happen either. The FBI is not your friend, my lovely deplorables, and its new director is not going to help you. That has never, ever been the FBI director’s job. The FBI director’s job is to advance the mission of the FBI: to maintain the status quo.Read More
Shouldn’t this have been all over the front pages of the NYT, WaPo, WSJ and talked about on CNN, MSNBC, FOX, Etc…? Guess this doesn’t fit the media narrative. That narrative is Trump is bad and must be defeated by any means necessary. Slather the public with propaganda then when contradicted, just ignore. People will forget in no time. They have no attention spans.
