Russia, Obama: what we knew

But what media won’t talk about. Yet at a hearing with Peter Strzock, for proof of the conspiracy, media were forced to talk about what they have ignored for about a year.

Obama’s cybersecurity coordinator confirms Susan Rice ordered him to ‘stand down’ on Russian meddling

by Christian Datoc | June 20, 2018 | Washington Examiner

Michael Daniel confirmed Wednesday that former national security adviser Susan Rice ordered him and his staff to “stand down” in 2016 in regard to Russian attempts to meddle in the 2016 election.

Daniel, special assistant to former President Barack Obama and White House cybersecurity coordinator, told members of the Senate Intelligence Committee that quotes attributed to him in the book, Russian Roulette: The Inside Story of Putin’s War on America and the Election of Donald Trump, were an “accurate rendering of the conversation” he had with Rice and his staff.

Daniel’s staff reportedly responded to the order in “disbelief.”

Over the past year, the Obama administration has been criticized for allegedly being aware of Russian attempts to influence the election yet primarily remaining silent on the subject.

The Washington Post reported that Obama himself — along with three top aides — was given direct evidence from the CIA of Russian President Vladimir Putin’s cyber campaign to influence the election.

The Obama administration reportedly knew of Russia’s actions for months ahead of the 2016 election, but failed to take retaliatory action until December.

“It is the hardest thing about my entire time in government to defend,” a former senior Obama administration official involved in White House deliberations on Russia said of the administration’s inaction. “I feel like we sort of choked.”

I don’t know, but there are words so much more fitting than “choking.” How about dereliction of duty; or treason; or maybe just fulfilling that super-flexibility role, like President Gumby had promised Putin? Media has been busy ignoring it all.

I remember another distant place where standing down was an issue. Oh yeah, Benghazi.

Clown Express: last call to Washington elites for 2018

The increasingly irrelevant George Will may be defrocked but he is still bloviating about his political strategy — supposedly to stop Republicans.

Ed Morrow tore it up in this piece. George Will’s satchel of descriptors

George Will Willfully Wills Defeat

Consider the first paragraph of [George Wills’] recent Washington Post column, “Vote Against the GOP”:

Amid the carnage of Republican misrule in Washington, there is this glimmer of good news: The family-shredding policy along the southern border, the most telegenic recent example of misrule, clarified something. Occurring less than 140 days before elections that can reshape Congress, the policy has given independents and temperate Republicans—these are probably expanding and contracting cohorts, respectively—fresh if redundant evidence for the principle by which they should vote.

“Carnage,” “telegenic,” “temperate Republicans,” “expanding and contracting cohorts,” “fresh if redundant,” and two uses of “misrule”—all in two sentences!

https://amgreatness.com/2018/06/25/george-will-willfully-wills-defeat/

Will, indeed, is laying it on thick. Not content with opposing Republicans in 2016, he is back now opposing Repubs in 2018, counseling you to do exactly that. Sure he can explain his 3-cushion (attempted) bank shot. But why would anyone take Will seriously now?

Russian Election Meddling

Democrats want us to know that Russians tried to and meddled in our 2016 election. Gasp, “Holy Cow, Batman!” … feigned outrage wearing my best Casablanca face, “Shocked!”

This report article is excellent reading and a good resource.

Russia Meddled and Almost Nobody Cared, Until . .

By Steven J. Allen | June 23rd, 2018

Political leaders and journalists are deeply concerned about Russian meddling in U.S. elections. Took ’em long enough.

The Russians have been meddling in U.S. elections for at least 70 years. see

https://amgreatness.com/2018/06/23/russia-meddled-and-almost-nobody-cared-until/

Serving up a heaping helping of care for anyone interested. And the Dems have been in on, colluding in, the meddling about as long. Their cohorts in the media have been right there with them as long.

Which is why Ted Kennedy could have promised the US media’s help to Andropov, leader of the Communist Party, so they could speak directly to the American people in hopes of undermining Reagan. They demurred. But accepted Obama’s flexibility pledge.

That’s another thing that is not new with the left: the traitorous schemes of their commie roots. Now they are outraged? The Left suffers from a severe case of exposure.

Trump’s America: down is up and right is wrong, hate is the rage

I thought it would be fun to list some of the many ways things are now reversed or running backward from the previous 8 years. Maybe it’s upside down in general.

    • The stock market goes up and causes major panic in mainstream media.
    • Any good news is now considered toxic. Bad news is good news and rewarded. Thus leaks of any spec of bad. Progress is undermining gov’t or the Trump administration.
    • Anyone who supports, compliments, or credits Trump for anything is a default target of the Left. Anyone who condemns him in the most vile terms is celebrated.
    • If MSM has to report statistical good news, unemployment, jobs, etc., they must trace it to Obama. Credit Trump with nothing and Obama for everything.
    • The Left credits Obama with teeing up the economy. Well, if teeing up means standing on the throat of the economy. He set us up for growth nicely.
    • They credit Obama for good news when he’s been out of office for a year and half. Look, he had eight years. So why wasn’t he hitting these numbers?
    • Everyone should now, collectively, disrespect the office of the President — or anyone in his administration. Any respect for the office is punished.
    • We went from how could anyone say “no” to a job in the administration to how could anyone say “yes” to taking a job?
    • Being happy about the direction of the country is suddenly a bad thing.
    • Nazi comparisons are very in vogue now. Yes, after years of being taboo, everything in the US suddenly has a Nazi parallel.
    • You get punished or blacklisted for talking well about Trump.
    • Being in the state of resistance or sedition is the only acceptable position.
    • Democrats are resisting democracy.
    • You cannot impeach Obama on any grounds. The first Unimpeachable President. But now you can impeach Trump as soon as he enters office.
    • AG’s now have to be recused from everything; as opposed to being the private partisan wingman for the president and accountable for nothing.
    • The seditious cult of Resistance says Repubs supporting Trump are cult-like.

But you cannot bullet point this:

The Left started this narrative that Trump should be on trial, for what? Special Counsel hasn’t told us. Yet Hillary Clinton was given a pass on clear criminal corruption, and her investigation was a subversion of justice. Self defense became obstruction of justice.

Now the Left’s narrative is that we cannot go after Obama, the Clintons, or any of their loyalist corruptibles because they are no longer in office. They are private citizens, immune from suspicion. But they started the Trump investigation, or inquisition, when Trump was only a private citizen, a businessman and never before held office. Then they want to impeach him for the same trumped up, pre-office reasons.

Foreign relations changed too.

Half the populations of Honduras, Guatemala, El Salvador, Venezuela, and a good part of Mexico, woke up one morning and decided that they all have a guaranteed right to asylum status in America. An epidemic? All these people are hardly persecuted in their own country, with no viable options.

The Left all claims separating children from their families for their own safety, security and protection is inhumane. CPS and social service agencies across America have been doing exactly that to American citizens for decades and decades. The left called it protection.

I’m all for real solutions. So maybe the US should just annex the whole of Latin America and take over. Sound crazy? What’s crazier, having half their population showing up at our border claiming asylum or that? There is a sanctuary status for everyone in America but Americans. Americans are now second class citizens — at the bottom of the pecking order.

We would be called the evil “US empire” if we invaded Latin America and took over. They invade here and it is some guaranteed right. (which no one can quite explain) And when they do come, we have some moral and legal obligation to support, educate and employ them. So why not go down there and claim it? Might as well; they all want to come here.

Either peace out….or pissed off.

Brennan Spells Sedition

In one of his latest rants in the op-ed pages, John Brennan laid out his reasons for opposing Trump so venomously. Or he thought he did, for anyone willing to buy his crazy BS.

Vice President Joe Biden swears in CIA Director John Brennan in the Roosevelt Room of the White House on 8 March 2013. Members of Brennan’s family stand with him. Brennan was sworn in with his hand on an original draft of the United States Constitution, dating from 1787, which has George Washington’s personal handwriting and annotations on it. (Wiki pd)

Here are a few excerpts from Wa Po:

“Presidents throughout the years have differed in their approaches to policy, based on political platforms, ideologies and individual beliefs. Mr. Trump, however, has shown highly abnormal behavior by lying routinely to the American people without compunction, intentionally fueling divisions in our country and actively working to degrade the imperfect but critical institutions that serve us.”

“His disparagement of institutions is designed to short-circuit legitimate law enforcement investigations, intelligence assessments and media challenges that threaten his interests. His fear of the special counsel’s work is especially palpable, as is his growing interest in destroying its mandate.”

Interesting that a man who claims to want to protect institutions or norms in America so much is the very key culprit in undermining them in 2016-17 — throughout the campaign. The institution of the press, like others, was being corrupted and spoon-fed their own corrosive toxin, which undermined any objective truth in media journalism.

But that guy, John Brennan, is worried about Trump damaging the integrity and credibility of institutions? While he now is fully engaged in sedition, Brennan was even undermining the sacred election process he claimed to be concerned with.

The reason Brennan chimes in on just this topic of institutions was to follow Obama’s twisted and treasonous lead. Obama often rails about protecting sacred institutions from the damage Trump is doing to them. The same institutions that were co-opted in an elaborate Trump opposition and are now incorporated in the resistance. The same institutions that contribute to the Deep State resistance.

Obama wrote in his famous White House exit letter:

“That makes us guardians of those democratic institutions and traditions — like rule of law, separation of powers, equal protection and civil liberties — that our forebears fought and bled for. Regardless of the push and pull of daily politics, it’s up to us to leave those instruments of our democracy at least as strong as we found them.” – [Obama’s exit letter.]

Sounds a lot like the same crutch of criticism Brennan is now using toward Trump.

So Brennan carefully wove a Trump diatribe criticizing his damage to sacred institutions of integrity. Of which we know the FBI, CIA, DOJ and entire intelligence apparatus were a significant concern, along with those who ran them under Obama’s politicized and weaponized government.

Good thing that old reliable arm of the press has given another glimpse into what happened in the 2016 election and ever since.

Are NBC and CNN Paying Off Top Spies Who Leaked Info With On-Air Jobs?

Tablet Magazine

“The first reason, popular on both the left and among the Never Trump coterie on the right, is the assertion that Trump is a dangerous fascist who is on the verge of overthrowing the rule of law in America, an emergency that, if real, might indeed call for extreme measures, like throwing the principles of evidence-based reporting out the window. The problem with this argument being that however obvious and galling the man’s flaws are, no evidence for the thesis that Donald Trump intends to do away with Congress and the courts and rule by his own Trumpian fiat exists, at least not on planet earth. The assertion that such evidence does exist is the province of lunatics, and of people who find it useful to goose them on social media, or take their money.”

“The second reason for the departures from legal, institutional, and procedural norms that propagating a conspiracy theory requires is far more troubling. The lies and misinformation spoon-fed to the press by former high intelligence officials, who are now cashing paychecks from the same news outlets that they partnered with, are part of an ongoing campaign which, if successful, will protect those ex-spy chiefs from the legal consequences of their own law-breaking while in office.”

Chew on that John Brennan. It is hard to ignore countless dark operatives who have migrated from Deep State jobs into the mainstream media. Only last week, Ben Rhodes went over to NBC, as if that was any surprise. Brennan himself got an NBC deal.

“For example, the House Intelligence Committee report found that James Clapper “flatly denied ‘discussing[ing] the dossier [compiled by Steele] or any other intelligence related to Russia hacking of the 2016 election with journalists.’ ” Yet while Clapper may now find himself in trouble for lying to Congress—which he has done before on extremely consequential subjects, like the extent of America’s domestic spying programs, apparently without damaging his credibility as a “news source”—he has carved a new job out of a possible crime. In August 2017, CNN hired him as an analyst, creating the appearance, at least, that the network is now paying him for the information he leaked to them. At the same time, it provides him with a platform to run an offense shielding him from the legal consequences of his actions. Presumably, Clapper will continue to justify his actions as a public official on-air while denying any wrong-doing, and his “analysis” will be presented to viewers as impartial and truthful.”

Also being part of the media organ now shields them of accountability for their covert actions. Remember that leakers are being hunted while reporters who publish it are considered immune. CNN scooped up Josh Campbell, the former assistant to James Comey who bailed out saying he had to leave FBI to speak out in the public square — to protect the institution — also penned a diatribe against Comey’s firing.

These insider additions could be the new avenues for the Deep State ops and holdovers to leak, creating a network for Deep State (and institutions) to channel their latest wares.

“It’s hard to imagine anything worse for a democracy than journalists coordinating with political operatives and spies who are paid by the press to leak information about American citizens. But that’s where we are. We have hit rock-bottom.” [see article]

Rhodes to NBC rescue

Former Obama Aide Ben Rhodes Joins MSNBC, NBC News as Political Contributor

BY: David Rutz | June 2, 2018 | Washington Free Beacon

Former top Barack Obama White House aide Ben Rhodes is joining MSNBC and NBC News as a political contributor.

MSNBC’s media relations team tweeted out the announcement Saturday, saying Rhodes would make his NBC debut on Sunday on “Meet The Press.”

Rhodes’ official title in the Obama administration was Deputy National Security Advisor for Strategic Communications, and he played key roles in numerous foreign policy decisions. He took heat in 2016 when he boasted in a New York Times profile of creating an “echo chamber” to sell the Iran nuclear deal and mocked Washington, D.C., reporters.

Who did not see that one coming? (wonder what the terms are?) Participate in a plot against elections and the US, and you get the analyst armchair at a major network. Right on the heels of Obama and Michele heading to Netflix, while Valerie Jarrett secured a seat on the board.

After Action Report: Russia

One issue of a blog is you can tend to repeat things. But there are times and things that need repeated, maybe often. Such is the case with motives for the Russia, Trump investigation. Subversives have been very, very busy.

I said it before but the profound factor that sticks in my craw is the cause of the Trump investigation. To call it a Russia investigation is really pathetic. They talk about obstruction of justice. That ain’t a Russia issue. In my younger days, one of my most important lessons was it was not enough to know the how but you have to know the why, too.

In this Russia and Trump thing, we are hearing more and more about the how. I think we know most of it. But I notice they stay pretty silent on the why. We have seen the deep dark ways Obamafiles went about things, with dirty hands, and yet the media stays away from discussing why. Well, they speculated on every other related thing. How come they can’t come to grips to question that? At least Joe DiGenova has reminded us that they framed Trump in this entire thing in retaliation for the election. They try to diminish his integrity by calling it conspiracy theory. Oh, but it was a conspiracy, after all.

Obama had a Russia problem, which he could no longer cover up or just ignore. Even his underlings were prodding him to do something. Ala, along came Trump. He made the perfect scapegoat. Use the Russia problem as the reason to investigate Trump. And use it they did. That is the thing, the big lie, that hangs over this whole smoke cloud. The problem was the genesis for investigating Trump. It makes no sense to most people. That didn’t seem to matter. Push a narrative hard enough and it becomes a fact.

But it served the purpose. It got Obama out of the huge hole he had — an action deficit — to do something about Russia. It appeared like the Obama administration was doing something about Russia when its motives were clearly on Trump. It would bury the truth that he failed to respond, some say was complicit, in the Russia problem. It would alter his historical legacy by substituting Trump for the Russia problem. And it would be the perfect cover for investigating Trump and his entire campaign. Bad enough that it was not a last minute thought. It had been built over months. But the time came when he could formerly merge the two, supposedly seamlessly, so you couldn’t see where one ended and the other started — or where his complicit incompetence started or ended. Or where his malfeasance started because it never ended.

Now what we have is the Deep State running things, in the absence of Obama officials. And the Deep State has surfaced at their pinnacle of power in the DOJ. Sure they have ties throughout but where would their power be at its zenith? Of course when in control in the DOJ. Which is all why now Holder is calling on DOJ employees to defy the Trump administration as well as refuse to cooperate with Congress. As Holder explained in a telegraphed statement tailored directly to them, there have to be times when you just “say no” — to requests from outside the department. This of course would render the DOJ a sovereign power answerable and accountable to no one.

This does make it the most powerful department of the government. It will solidify the control of the Deep State and prevent it from being contested or routed out. But that is precisely why it is so important to challenge the DOJ, even if it is not desirable or popular. It was made to order to cover a multitude of sins of Obama’s. And it didn’t take much for the public to follow their (Obama’s and his lieutenants’) lead. People had been led by the string of mainstream media for years. And Media would do Deep State’s dirty work for them. Media had built up suspicion of Trump from the beginning. It was simply a matter of bringing all sides together: the media’s disdain for Trump, the left’s dissatisfaction and grief over the election, FBI and intelligence’s campaign of investigation and a plot against him, with a good old time-honored strategy or plot against their political opponents. It wouldn’t take much to unite them all in a choreographed coup even once Trump took power.

At the point Trump won the election, all efforts had to be shifted to resistance. Russia looked like even a better cover for that purpose. But the real point was that once the dubious Trump investigation began, right on through with their best efforts of broadening it into a huge counterintelligence investigation, along with Obama’s intentional urging, all was set firmly in place to take on a mind of its own. Especially with the absence of Obama officials after inauguration. Obama knew it would go on and on like they always do. The best part is Trump would be enshrined in one of Obama’s greatest failures — to respond to Russia with any substantial credibility. They wanted to saddle then bury Trump with Obama’s treasonous incompetence.

A solution to the Russia problem. It would no longer be his failure but a problem hung around Trump’s neck. It was also a political solution, the kind Obama liked. Better still it would continue on long after he left office. People would no longer complain or point to Obama as a weak link in one of the biggest elections and greatest upsets in history. They would blame Trump. This is how sinister these people are. The Deep State would cooperate without urging, because they would protect their radical czar.

In the process, Obama destroyed the credibility of the DOJ and FBI in his swamp of subversion. But who cares? Which is more valuable, saving Obama’s legacy or the FBI’s? We know which wins and it isn’t even close. Besides. the DOJ and FBI have their advocates to defend their reputations, at all costs, and they will. Mueller and Rosenstein will creatively defend the assault on the country and election by DOJ and intelligence. They can be counted on for that purpose. As usual, if successful, Obama would get away with offloading the entire blame for his treason and sedition onto Trump.

Obama and his vast number of cohorts throughout government suffered no accountability, at least so far. Can history ignore this choreographed corruption? How do you delete this treason, and now sedition, from the record?

Ode to McCain

First of all, my compassion and prayers to John McCain and his family for real life experiences he and all are going through. Let me get that out of the way. Sigh.

The recent comments by a White House staffer, Kelly Stadler, said in a staff meeting about McCain — “he is dying anyway” — might be unfortunate, wrong or some degree of tacky. But then she did apologize by calling Meghan McCain. That should do it, no? No, it didn’t.

Meghan McCain went on The View the next day and laces into her. She said:

“”The thing that surprises me most is … I don’t understand what kind of environment you’re working in when that would be acceptable and you can come to work the next day and still have a job.” That’s all I have to say about that, she said.

 

Well, back last year, McCain delivered a scathing “indictment” as it was called by media to a grand audience, while receiving a Liberty Medal award.

“[Lose] the obligations of international leadership, and the duty to remain the last best hope of earth for the sake of some half-baked, spurious nationalism cooked up by people who would rather find scapegoats than solve problems.”

Trump said, after McCain’s remarks back then that:

“Yeah well, I hear it. And people have to be careful because at some point I fight back. I’m being very nice. I’m being very, very nice. But at some point I fight back, and it won’t be pretty,” he told the Chris Plante Show.

Then the View chastised Trump for his measured restraint, by scolding him:

Whoopi Goldberg: “Mr….all I can say is ‘have you no shame, have you no shame, have you no shame?’ Damn!”

During Whoopi’s remarks Meghan McCain was heard saying “no” in agreement. It takes a lot to put the View in agreement with Meghan on anything. Whooppi went on to say “you tweet about the NFL, man, what are you doing? You bonehead!” Meghan chimed in about Trump’s comments:

“Oh my gosh. Listen, I was here yesterday with you guys when this story brake and I hate, I hate this fighting between my father and President Trump because when we were talking about service and things like that, I just find it SO deeply sacred. And this is highly politicized.

My father and President Trump have DEEP disagreements on the future of America, DEEP disagreements on the role of America globally, about the role of the Republican Party… and whom should be leading it. And my father, God love him, at 81 years old fighting brain cancer, is still out there having something to say…and I’m so proud.

There is a complete lack of courage in DC right now on all sides, all sides, all the way around, the lack of courage to go up and stand for what you believe in and for me, I….”

Of course the rest of the View jumped in on that to say it is not Democrats who lack courage, and that they aren’t in control of power.

 

Meghan likes to swim in it when it suits her and her family. However, the lack of courage is what Trump is breaking through. How many people are grateful that he stands up to the same old same old, and all his supporters who found their voice through him?

Up to the current comment at some staff meeting within the White House.

Immediately, now, they are calling for Kelly Stadler to be fired and MSM is stirring the bonfire on The View and in Meghan McCain’s response. “It’s offensive, it’s hurtful,” says Ana Navarro. (self-righteous talking head who claims to speak as some Republican conscience) “She should be fired,” Navarro said.

So this is the John McCain that can say anything he wants broad brushing whole swaths of people, the sitting president, and/or anyone who disagrees with him with pejorative names. Then Ana Navarro called him “graceful”.

Meghan McCain summed up her latest comments about the critics of John McCain: “My father’s legacy will be talked about for hundreds and hundreds of years,” McCain said. “These people? Nothingburgers. Nobody is going to remember you.”

She also commented toward General Mcinerney for his statement on the Haspel confirmation: “torture worked on McCain, that’s why they call him Somgbird.”

Meghan said “At some point when you’re tortured everyone breaks.”

 

So now we are nothingburgers too. I’ll add that to my long list. What I want to know is one simple thing. Why does McCain habitually get to have the last word?

This idea Sen John McCain must have the last word about everything and no one is allowed to say anything is hogwash. I detest that notion. Where does that come from?

I’ve been called an agent of intolerance, a wacko-bird, among so many other things, and am now told to “go to hell” if I disagree with his handling the dirty dossier. It was McCain that injected it into the bloodstream of the government.

But McCain must always have the last word? We have to shut up? We are not allowed to respond to McCain’s hostile attacks on Trump or Americans. I do not accept it.

Notice too how it usually is McCain or his family who stir up and incite this feud with Trump, conservatives, or us supporters. It’s what John does. We’ve been McCain’s whipping post for at least 18 years. Often it is personal invective and sheer bitterness.

Trump is a counter puncher and does respond, unlike some other people. He has said things in response to McCain’s salvos. Then, when someone complains about McCain, or what he has done, he lashes out and media comes blaming us as the cause of consternation. He picks the fight. That seems to be his way of getting publicity or ginning it up.

 

Here is the problem: media and the left look for anything to use as a wedge between McCain, Trump and conservatives. They want to stir Republican feuds. It is no secret McCain is not well liked. He doesn’t like us, it’s common knowledge. So they create or use every chance they get to feign outrage on behalf of poor John McCain. But why does McCain play along? Why does he have to say anything? He can’t let it go….like we’re supposed to. Trump let it pass when McCain called us spurious nationalists and demeaned our motives. Media tried to provoke Trump to respond. And Meghan plays right along.

On top of that the self-anointed word police in the mainstream media make issues over every statement. They are the street cops — considering they openly called Trump a liar among other things. Who appointed them? I’m tired of McCain’s victimhood.

All the things that were said to and about Trump in the last 2 years — hateful personal attacks about his ability or stability — and yet no one in media or “talking head land” has come out to suggest McCain might consider stepping aside, in view of his medical and physical impediments. Wow, just stunning hypocrisy at its worst.

So Let all those media firings begin immediately for their grievous offenses. Hypocrisy.
McCain has brought this on himself, but he squeals at every response from his victims.

McCain now clearly wants to haunt us for years with his memoir, while we are supposed to be unable to respond because he is a hero or some phony, sainted pillar of bipartisanship. Here I thought, I mean it sure seemed like, our response is what he wanted.

One for the hopper

The daily roundup of news is at times overwhelming. But at the same time we still don’t hear the news we need to know, or want to hear.

If you are looking for that story you know is out there but can’t find, it is probably no surprise why. If you are looking for the true story on something, well, it can be almost impossible to find. Maybe you have to take snippets from 3 different pieces to cobble together the best iteration of the truth. But it is doubtful you will find it from the main talking heads on the 24/7.

Why do I say that and why does that matter? Simply because we have to think, like we always did, using critical thinking. That was always the case for us — not everyone else.

You’ve seen it before where the things media cares about are not the things the people care about. Media admits that it reports what it wants people to care about. Then they will hide behind the excuse that “this is what people want or care about.” They feed us a daily diet of what they want us to see and care about. I’ve even been told basically that by a TV reporter many years ago. It is the ultimate arrogance. They’ll even tell you to your face when they think a story is not worthy of their coverage, though probably not why.

The paraphrase of this distortion is: ‘if it is on the news, we are the reason because we demand it.’ Take the Stormy Daniels (whatever her real name is) story, we are all so curious and just want, no need, to know. If they put it on we want it.

It is also our fault, or Trump’s, when news errors.

Sure we know they are biased but I do wonder how many people know how intentional it really is? I think it has finally become clear; we got a lesson in that over the last couple years. It is about as intentional as the FBI/DOJ investigation of Trump. They, intelligence, were like Rod Blagojevich saying “I got this golden thing”. That statement alone probably did Rod the most harm. But that’s how intelligentsia played us.(or tried to) This golden thing to them begets the golden-shower story. A hodge-podge of a fictional narrative.

Served up daily, the Sludge Of Our Times is not what is on our menu but what we get. The stories we want covered are albeit ignored. Substituted with the stuff from the bottom of the swamp. And we are supposed to say, “sir, can we have more, please?

If people want to know, the MSM’s job is to make you really work to find out.

Another wicked excuse for Hillary

One more excuse to Hillary’s bottomless bucket list of denials, now from Politico.

Hannity.com

Politico published an article Sunday titled, “Trump thrives in areas that lack traditional news outlets,” suggesting the President was able to “Swamp Clinton” in areas that had low subscription rates to local newspapers.

The data suggests those voters relied on national news outlets and social media for information instead of more traditional media outlets such as newspapers and local television reports.

Notice how in this one they get to take a shot at ill-informed people, popular anti-MSM sentiment, and pat themselves on the back while attacking social media and online news. If only people would have listened to them. The hubris.

Next, they’ll be blaming MSM’s lack of credibility and downfall on Trump, like NYT. So then why are the left and their MSM minions dumber than rocks? So dumb to believe all of Hillary’s excuses? So stupid they never saw that big Trump truck coming?

China and the Left

I see a similarity of China and the Left here, aside from the communism ties. It is not a stretch, the political strategies align. You might say birds of the feather.

It is always about the goal with the left, as it is with China. The means are only the vehicle, to be discarded when the goal is achieved. And anything that achieves it is acceptable.

Regarding the trade deficit with China, and recent tariff announcements, Trump said that there may be some pain but in the end we will have a stronger country. That is the first time I heard a leader reference the long game of what we want. (okay maybe not first) A lot of people probably shuttered to hear that.

I bet that got the Chinese’s attention because he is referencing the long game. Something we don’t always stress. It shakes their predictability about us. In other words, that we would be willing to weather some pain to get to the benefit in the end.

See the strategy to Chinese is really as simple as the lefts’ is. Both are focused on the destination not on the means. Whatever the means matters little. The destination is king. That is the same with the Chinese. And If they really believe in their dominant end, and we know they do, then that tells the real story.

To Chinese they want to control or run the world. See if that is their goal then nothing else is important. Do you get it? If that is where they see themselves, at that point there is nothing anyone can do to them about anything — there’s nothing to negotiate. That may seem a fantasy to us, but if they believe it then it gives their strategy away. Once they are in the driver’s seat the game is over.

We, however look at this as a long term game that will continue. It won’t once they reach their destination. They will be the tyrants they want to be and it will be tough to anyone who disagrees. That is what they have in mind. Nothing like our goals or strategy. We want a working relationship, for the long term. They are just thinking as the short term until they get to their destination.They think none of this stuff will matter then.

It is the same type mindset the Left has. They look only at achieving their desired ends. Once that is done, nothing else such as rules apply. It is a king of the hill perspective. They plan on keeping the hill once they get it. That is the way their plans work. Do you see the similarity? Power is rule, and rule is permanent not temporary. At that point, all resources go to preserving and keeping that permanent rule. Sure, it is a scorched earth plan but so what? That is how they play. We are looking at it as a balancing act but they don’t want anything balanced. They want control and once you have it, you run the show. If we do not look at the end game, goals, of those like China, Russia, N Korea, or Iran, then we underestimate the game. The days of just ignoring it are dwindling.

This is why we, meaning media and talking heads, are concerned about a trade war. It’s a perpetual real war to China, and they plan on winning. So the state of a trade war does not matter to China at all. This is also why intellectual property is a major issue to us and not to them. Their end doesn’t see a problem with private intellectual property.

It is sort of the same thing as CNN or MSM worrying about so-called Russia collusion. while the rest of the country is concerned about trade. The two are not on the same wave lengths, like two different orbits. Which one matters?

Leave it to left to define Roseanne

After throwing his own family under the bus, as the typical Trump -supporting, racist-type family, this NYT columnist says about Roseanne’s show and Trump-supporters:

Read here.

“The dark underbelly of the white, working-class, the intolerance that permeates so much of their lives, is completely absent, and that absence can serve a dangerous purpose: to reinforce the delusion that they’re actually supporting somebody like Donald Trump for honorable reasons.”

But this deserves commentary. It seems so easy for them to try to shove (no pound) Trump supporters into some stereotype but it doesn’t work. That’s probably what frustrates them. It is a delusion, he says, and nothing about their support is honorable.

Rather their view is some distilled elite, deceptive, liberal projection of people that no one in the world should like. Or that is the hope. ‘Who could like these despicable people?’

Maybe he should look in the mirror and face the kind of world view he and his Liberal ilk represents. It is they who are so far off the mainstream of any political alignment with reality, much less the electorate — and proudly bigoted about it.

In truth, as Sterling might say in Twilight Zone, “he seems to have turned into a caricature of himself.” And speaking of dysfunction, how functional could these Leftists be in their families or community? It is also a ruling-class elitist mindset that asserts only they know better how to fix or run your lives. If you only follow their plantation politics.

Maybe I will do a satire on the kind of people Liberals would like to see portrayed to represent their politically correct, leftist view of how a typical family should be and live.

So says the misinformed Lefty antagonist. Trumpism, whatever you term that to be, is not an ideology. You sure missed every lesson offered in 2016.

The March for lives?

Since yesterday was the students March for our lives and today is Sunday, I thought a scripture might be appropriate for the occasion.

Well, other than it being just another big registration drive for Dems, you know, everyone wants to defer to the expert wisdom of these kids. Who could disagree? That’s the idea.

And just for a reminder that there is really nothing new under the sun.

Isaiah 3 (NASB)
4And I will make mere lads their princes,
And capricious children will rule over them,
5And the people will be oppressed,
Each one by another, and each one by his neighbor;
The youth will storm against the elder
And the inferior against the honorable.

12 O My people! Their oppressors are children,
And women rule over them.
O My people! Those who guide you lead you astray
And confuse the direction of your paths.

 

One girl named Naomi Wadler, who led fellow students on a walkout at her school, said:

“My friends and I might still be 11 and we might still be in elementary school, but we know,” she said. “We know life isn’t equal for everyone and we know what is right and wrong.”

And of course Obama chimed in with an always relevant piece of outhouse wisdom:

 

Nothing can stand in the way. Forget that, unfortunately, nothing stood in the way of this shooter in Parkland to commit this atrocity. Nothing except a coach who tried to intervene to save some students and died.

But no law enforcement officer stood in his way, no social worker, school employee, sheriff deputy, FBI agent, or school resource officer on the scene. Nothing. But they deliberately ignore all those failures on the record. Yet nothing can stop these kids, this anti-gun movement, now.

Obama must be snickering about that. No stopping the shooter, just stop NRA and any legislators in their way.  I get shivers when I hear Obama talking about “change”.

Yet there were some counterprotestors calling to protect the Second Amendment.

“I like talking to people I disagree with so I can get a broader range of views. I’d say there’s a lot of misinformation and I came to talk to people,” Eric Ciabottonia, a 19-year-old engineering major from Penn State University.

Talking vs. listening to God: who you going to believe?

This is a post I wanted to write and didn’t want to write. Wanted to because I think it is important, but didn’t want to because I know people roll their eyes or get turned off talking about faith or Christianity. Still here goes.

A few weeks ago Joy Beyhar made a comment on the View attacking Pence for his Christian beliefs. Then she was forced to apologize by Disney. But Pence, in his kind way, accepted it and urged her to make a public apology to the millions of Christians she offended. Finally, she did make a public apology on TV.

Yes, regardless of the apology, it is still worthy of discussion. IOW, that is not the end of it.

What she said was the subject of the matter.

“It’s one thing to talk to Jesus. It’s another thing when Jesus talks to you. That’s called mental illness, if I’m not correct, hearing voices.”

Never mind the grammatical faux pas, she referred to it as mental illness. Great job offending ignorant Christians who just don’t know better. Her apology did not make it go away. She was just voicing a common misconception about Christians.

Apology — “I was raised to respect everyone’s religious faith and I fell short of that,” the comedian said. “I sincerely apologize for what I said.”

The crux of the matter is listening to God. That is the big offense here. Apparently talking to God is fine but listening to God is not. That, in a nutshell, is a common liberal opinion out there. In othe words, it would take a Christian to be offended at that because most other people would not be. No wonder we are where we are in society.

Listening to God, can it be possible that is a chief offense? Is it really the stuff of loony tunes and crazies? Nonsense, but it makes for a good sound bite.

However, it is completely backwards or reversed from Christian tradition. We talk an awful lot to God. Some people pray regularly. Funny that listening would be the problem. We do have an awesome God who not only hears but knows our hearts and intentions. You don’t fool God. Yes, we are not above error. Much of the problem is not listening.

One of the things we are taught, or learn, is the patience and discipline to listen to God. Call it waiting on Him. Remember He has the ability to speak any way He wants, whether by events or natural means or through people. But God’s message will come through if He wants it to. So then it becomes a matter of us being receptive or listening for it.

Discerning

I would actually say that the easier part is for us to talk, the harder part is to listen. If it were only us talking, it is a one way conversation. You talk to your friends, but you don’t do all the talking.(or you might not have the friend for long) And we don’t have all the answers, which is often why we turn to God. We are seeking something from Him.

God desires a personal relationship with his people. How do you have a relationship without doing some listening? In 2 Chronicles 7:14, it tells us “if my people who are called by my name humble themselves, and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and heal their land.”

That also means we are heard. It says “seek my face.” Well, seeking is also listening, and following. Through the scriptures, prayer talking to others, we seek. Often we are seeking answers, or solutions. Shouldn’t we be open to answers, even expect them? James 1:22 — “But be doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves.”

Or we could try acting like one of the pundits on TV who talks over the other person blocking out their voice. How can they be listening when they shout down the other person? They ignore other people’s answers. Liberals like that method.

So talking to God is fine, but listening is not.

Just imagine how you would teach your kids then. Tell them “we want you to talk to God, pray. Just don’t ever listen to Him. See, that’s where you get into trouble.” Just like if you told your kids: “if you need help, come and talk to me. Just never listen to me or follow me. So, kids, no listening now….don’t embarrass me.” It is the same message.

This is what we get from society. Joy got a lot of laughs, seemed the crowd was with her. That’s what I expect from the secularists today. Sure they preach their religion, but when it comes to Christians? Well, just laugh at them. Okay, so I forgive her. That is the mentality though and she is not alone. They just have it exactly backwards.

Our bodies are gifts as well as our limbs. It is how we use them that matters. Reasoning is a gift and so is our conscience. It’s another way God talks to us. If we don’t listen to our conscience it would cause a problem. You would never tell someone to stop listening to their conscience. But the world and society might. Maybe peer pressure tells kids to ignore their conscience. Do we tell kids to do that? And the world thinks we’re crazy?

Google does “gun” control

Look how Google does gun control, like they do everything. Add it to the mix.

Google tried censoring ‘gun’ shopping searches. It backfired

Philip Wegmann | Feb 27, 2018 | Washington Examiner

In the wake of the Florida school shooting, Google decided to take a stand. The gatekeeper of the Internet decided to filter shopping searches that included the term “gun.” It didn’t go so well.

Early Tuesday morning, Internet shoppers started noticing and documenting the digital gaffes. Users received error notices when they searched for glue guns and water guns, toy guns and airsoft guns, nail guns and nerf guns. The algorithm is apparently so strict that even the color “burgundy” triggered an error because it includes “gun” in the spelling.

This set off something of a parlor game on social media. Turns out, adults don’t like it when faceless bureaucrats try enforcing arbitrary restrictions — federal, corporate, or otherwise.

Casey “Stable Genius” Smith found that Google now censors “Laguna Beach.”

Technousayt observed that the beloved Tom Cruise film about beach volleyball, “Top Gun,” also could not be found.

Read more at: http://www.washingtonexaminer.com/google-tried-censoring-gun-shopping-searches-it-backfired/article/2650230

So it got interesting in all kinds of ways. But it does show how active Google is about monitoring political debate. How many other filters are they now applying?

Follow the trail

It’s nothing new for creatively radical leftists. For instance, the media developed a new trend for pushing gun control. Fox already reported media pushing Florida teen survivors as ambassadors for gun control. Laura Ingraham asked who out there wants to take political advice from students? No one.

But that doesn’t stop MSM like CNN and MSNBC from using the teens as experts on all things guns. Great, they know so much about everything else, don’t they? So they put kids against pols as gun control advocates. It doesn’t stop there.

Another media trend: in a half hour segment on the Fla shooting, CNN put up a pundit from Brussels and then one from London to tell us what our gun laws should be. Of course they exploited the chance to tell us. CNN never said why their opinion was important.

Shame maybe? That’s it, they want to guilt us into gun control the same way media guilted the country into electing Obama — and then unable to throw him out like trash.

On a similar note, Tucker Carlson had a DACA advocate for illegal immigration who lectured about sanctuary cities and laws. Now illegals are telling us what our immigration law should be. He didn’t like Tucker saying he was not an American because he wasn’t a citizen. Yet bozo started every sentence saying “we” should… do this or that.

The arrogance knows no boundaries. We must heed the advice of non-citizens on our own country? Next they will try to lecture us on who to elect, vote for, and draft our laws. Illlegals already demand they will decide who immigrates here via chain migration.

See a trend? Have the outsiders, or those who are part of the problem, be policy experts. How about asking MS 13 gang members what we should do on gang violence? Let’s have inmates run parole boards. Ask children and minors to develop our drug laws.

Though supporting Brexit like Nigel Farage is smeared as illegitimate. So when you want your country back, you are labeled an extremist on the outside fringe — despite polls.

But we need to bring in outsiders to set our laws and policies … or get students to do it.
The new rule must be that citizens are overruled and irrelevant. The coup of America.

SOTUS causes a planetary threat

Well, planet Librtard had a brief brush with our atmosphere last night, beginning at approximately 9:00 pm. The encounter lasted about an hour and 15 minutes. No response was issued from NORAD but they were obviously keeping an eye on developments.

Yes, Trump gave his first SOTUS and as you might expect some were not happy about it. Not that he could have said anything that would have quieted their phobia(s).

Daily Caller:

MSNBC host Joy Ann Reid found Trump’s appeals to patriotism quite terrifying. “Church … family … police … military … the national anthem … Trump trying to call on all the tropes of 1950s-era nationalism. The goal of this speech appears to be to force the normalization of Trump on the terms of the bygone era his supporters are nostalgic for,” Reid tweeted during the speech.

The American Civil Liberties Union bemoaned Trump said “America” too many times and that it was done in an “exclusionary” way.

Illinois Rep. Luis Gutierrez, Congress’ number one immigration booster, walked out of the speech after Republicans began chanting “U.S.A.” Gutierrez later issued a statement claiming the president’s speech was translated from Russian and that his remarks were “explicitly racist.”

Those USA chants must have set their hair on fire. Gutierrez had to walk out because he was so offended. Ah, don’t let the door hit you. But it was not just at the SOTUS, it began before Trump even left the White House.

Listening to CNN, Congressman Clyburn framed it in clear Nazi terms, comparing Trump to the earlier years of Hitler’s rise – “what was going on in Germany around 1934.”. When asked if he was directly comparing him to Hitler, he was undeterred. He said if he was making a direct comparison he would say Trump was Mussolini and Putin was Hitler. Nice. Make sure people know what you mean. He also said some of them were going to go to the SOTUS to ‘stare down’ Trump.

Right after the speech, Jake Tapper said Trump “had one hand out and one fist in the air.” From the network with both fists in the air.

CNN doling out marriage advice

Really now, taking advice on marriage from CNN is probably about the last thing most sane people would think of. And yes, it is every bit as bad as it sounds.

Dailywire

CNN, the network known for providing hard-hitting, always-truthful stories about the current political climate, took a day off from combing the White House halls for anonymous sources Thursday to issue a bit of marital advice. And as expected, it’s just as fantastic as their reporting.

According to CNN, perhaps the best thing to do for your relationship is to let your partner sleep with another person.

Read at Daily Wire

Wow, the things they can put out when the Fake News cycle gets a little slow behind the curtain. Looks like they are trying to make an apple out of a pineapple.

CNN could sponsor the next internet site launched to connect people. Ad campaign: “Hey couples, if your marriage is not already totally destroyed, there’s hope. You could consider this and give it the parting shot it needs.” – NADA; National Ass. of Divorce Advocates.

Anyway, you might scratch CNN off your list for marriage advice. (if it was ever on it)

CNN the victims of record

CNN has a new hobby horse and they are very concerned about it. Over last weekend they received threats and someone threatened to come to the studio and gun them down. Apparently authorities have arrested the person.

Let the lectures begin. Don Lemon and several pundits complained about victimization of media they, CNN particularly, have suffered. All of the fault blamed on Trump of course.

Do I even have to make a disclaimer on how wrong it is to make death threats or assault the media? That should not have to be said. I resent being compelled to say it.

So CNN wraps itself in the Victim label. That part of it disturbs me almost as much as the death threats. But they care nothing about the abuse or damage they have caused.

I look at Trump and see the one giant victim in the room that no one seems very concerned about. That whipping post never gets old. They don’t even care what damage that does to the country or to the US around the world. Nope. But media cannot issue one small disclaimer about that. No lecture on that subject.

Yet I hear what this “threat” environment has done to the media. (over and over) Well, they aren’t exactly blameless in their victimhood.

Right away, one of two examples of media hatred cited was the infamous pro-wrestling video Trump retweeted of him body slamming CNN. (the station not an employee) The other video used to make their case against Trump was his golf ball hitting Hillary as she got on a plane. Clearly these two things were humor not threats.

Remember what they did over the the body slam video? CNN claimed it endorsed violence toward CNN and media. Then they hunted down the creator of the video, attacked his character, and threatened to use their bullhorn on him. All for making a funny video.

On this show, where Don Lemon got emotional just reading the CNN statement, all claimed to have gotten threats and “nasty” comments across social media. April Ryan said she got a ton of nasty comments and some threats, and was keeping a list of them. They suggested Fake News was a dog whistle and also driven by racism. Well, just throw it all in there.

Then it all depends what one considers a “threat” though. CNN threw in a funny video as evidence of what, some threat? And they claim this has never happened before. April Ryan claimed all her harassment and threats started when Trump got elected.

The same network is proudly leading the resistance and opposition to Trump. To think they are not going to get any negative feedback would be ridiculous. But are they lumping all the feedback into harassment and threats? Seems they are. I guess they did not notice the other part of the first amendment, freedom of speech.

Hostage Crisis Countdown

This is day number one of the hostage crisis known as the Schumer Shutdown. As a result, it is not deal making; it is now hostage negotiation.

Schumer pulled the trigger of shutting down the government over an identity group called DACA Dreamers. and their demands. A non budget related item shoehorned into the CR to keep government running.

Now people like some Republicans can have problems with continued CR’s, but this was inserting a bomb into that CR process. And it accomplished its objective, shutting down government. Schumer’s success is defined as a shutdown. He is now on the outside.

Sure people can say a government shutdown is nothing new but it is a new strategy. Just insert your favorite little item, as a demand, to intentionally blow up the process. And it is done to force compliance to their whims by holding the entire government hostage to those demands. But it must be a very important thing to do that, no? No. It’s 700 thousand people blackmailing the whole government.

This is the radical left today. And all the logic and reason is not supposed to make sense, they want what they want. They don’t care about fixing anything, they want to break everything, including the rule of law. All that matters are their nefarious ends.

Trump has told them he will not negotiate on their issue while they are holding the government hostage. It reminds me of the Air Traffic Controllers and Reagan.

Take a real look though. This is actually called winning! Of course Dems will go to scorched earth measures when they are getting beat. It is what they do when they lose.

A politically manufactured shutdown.

So now when media gasbags — who actually helped spawn this radicalism — talk about some deal or deal-making process, it is too late. We are now in a hostage negotiation stage not deal making. This is blackmailing government for a small identity group.

Then, Friday, Schumer was invited to the White House to talk. But he brought a laundry list of demands. Really? Can you really, earnestly negotiate with Democrats or terrorists?

Here is what cheesy Schumer said a few years ago.

Governmental Chaos is exactly what Schumer is rolling out on the people — all over illegal immigration. Just call him Constitutional Chaos Chuck.

Fun fact: Obama did not get a budget passed until 2015. His first budget through Congress was passed after 6 years in office. In fact, he also blew right through any deadlines of making a budget. Dems were not the least bit concerned, because their radicalism and politicization of government was ruling the roost.

Then in 2016, Politico reported (2/8/16):

Even as Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders quarrel over who’s a “progressive” and who’s not, the president will propose a sweepingly progressive policy agenda that includes a $10-a-barrel oil tax, an expensive Medicaid expansion, a $4 billion initiative to promote computer science in public schools and the first down payment on a “moon shot” research initiative to cure cancer led by Vice President Joe Biden.”

Now Schumer has a moonshot of his own in mind. Go for broke.

If Dems wanted to force their DACA issue so badly, over funding gov, then why isn’t Chuck proudly taking credit for the Schumer Shutdown? Why blame Trump?
