Perennial Bias At Work

Our government used the pretext of Russia to spy on a presidential campaign. And it parlayed that “investigation” into the presidency after Trump entered office.

  • The IG Horowitz report declares it found no documented or admitted political bias in the cause of the investigation.
  • It found 16- 17 problems with how the investigation was handled.
  • Horowitz testified to the Senate Judiciary Committee that no one who touched this entire investigation should feel vindicated.
  • It found fraud committed in the FISA process.
  • The investigation used a dirty Russian-based dossier, paid for bu a political campaign, employing a foreign agent, as evidence in a FISA court for wiretapping + surveillance.

The question of political bias is almost moot now. Does it matter or is it relevant? An investigation has inherent bias, since the purpose is that someone probably did something wrong. But they qualify political bias as a possible concern.. I am concerned about both.

What matters is what they did, errors and all. The central reason political bias seems to matter is based on whether it should have started or not. And was it a basis for the investigation? Was it the purpose of it?

So did we really expect them to call the investigation unjustified? That would have been an automatic indictment on everything they did. It would be a glaring admission. It is doubtful even an Inspector General would be willing to do that.

Putting that bias question aside, the whole rest of the process which followed is an indictment on the cause of that investigation. Why break laws, use sinister conduct or act with malfeasance in investigating a justifiable cause?

And all that conduct happened to be against Trump.

So maybe too much emphasis is placed on whether there was provable political bias in the contamination of the decision to investigate? At least it was all around it. Shouldn’t there b a necessary attempt to eliminate bias? But that is not what we saw.

Back to what we citizen voters think. Much was made about our interpretation of inherent bias in the investigation. Though we had probable cause to suspect and confirm bias in the process. In fact, it almost screamed bias. That no one would have heard those screams would be irresponsible. How could we not see it?

All we heard since it began, and continued in its various forms, is that the FBI and its investigation is above reproach. But that is not what we saw. We saw a natural cause for bias alarm. Yet that we even questioned the FBI or basis of it was the problem.

The whole Russia meddling problem in in the election had little to do with Trump. They did not seem as interested in investigating Russian meddling as they were in investigating Trump collaboration. Russia was the predicate to investigate Trump.

Now if we had fraud in the investigating itself, we certainly had it in spades in the media reporting all along. It amplified whatever government was doing, both publicly and behind closed doors. You could label the reason for it as political bias. But does it matter? The media were doing what they were doing. Do we have to prove what effect their political bias had in order to validate whether it existed? That would seem absurd.

Yet the entire cabal boils down to that one simple fact: our Government used Russia as a pretext to investigate Trump, in an election and after. Period. Nothing changes that.

But Cardinal Comey calls our fears, analysis, criticisms and conclusions “all made up.

Pre-rebuttal of the IG Report

Leaks, lies, coups and liars’ legacies = just some procedural Bullshit?

Incidentally, if you don’t like the word bullshit then you may elect to skip this piece.

When is enough enough? Let me start by writing backwards, the way government usually does things. (in reverse) Starting with a premise and working backward to origination.

Synopsis: media has broken their cone of silence to actually talk about the upcoming IG Horowitz. Until now that has been a forbidden topic of conversation. Now, armed with numerous leaks, I presume they’re trying to manipulate our expectations for the report.

At first it seemed like they were just trying to get out ahead of it for damage control, to spin the outcome and temper our expectations. But now it looks like there may be something to what they are saying. (even if they’ve been in denial for 3 years.)

Then this report only becomes part of the cover-up.

Cut the bullshit:: This is a government report justifying what government did.

We should be clear on that. It’s what government does. And when government covers up for itself, it is doing what government does. When regular people do that, it is called a cover-up – considered worse than the crime in many cases.

All definitions from here on go into the trashcan – other than for bullshit. They, government, can alter or rewrite definitions as they go. The word ™*They in this form shall stand for government… or big, Deep State government.

Let me say this is not about the why *They did what *They did — other than the original investigation — but about what *They did. I think the motives are self-evident. *They, as in government, includes the head of the administration apparatus at the time, Obama.

Leaks of the document are flowing out daily.

They come from somewhere. You have to assume from within the *They apparatus. Reporters and MSM are only to happy to put them out there. (apparently sanctioned) Something about toning down or lowering expectations, I presume.

The conclusions of the report leaked out basically say the Trump investigation was justified from the onset. That the Carter Page probe was justified. But that there were some departmental problems, which he is going to point out, including how the “lower level” lawyer under James Baker altered FISA documents. Nevertheless, it did not change the outcome of this justifiable investigation, or its merits. Chew that slowly.

Yet there is no underlying problem with the integrity of the investigation itself, only some processes of it. Gee, and downhill from there on it goes. This starts to sound like every other “report” that has come out prior. But look at the accusations flying about everything Trump does. Put common sense aside.

In other words, what they are saying – if the report verifies it — is that the report is basically inconsequential as to the outcome of this Hoax. It is only relevant so far as procedural errors it quibbles with. But if it validates that the cooked up investigation and subsequent deep state coup was justified, then it becomes a part of the substantiation of the whole thing. See how this works? This IG look-see validates what *They did.

So unofficially, this IG Report could be called the cleanup detail of DOJ. One of the major problems it has is being released smack in the middle of an impeachment process. Whatever you think of the latter… and what a long winding road that has been: filled with innuendo, lies, dirt-digging politics and conspiracy theories etc. (dirt digging on Trump)

Maybe all we have witnessed to now is a natural byproduct of the “fundamental change” Obama promised. It certainly appears that way.

Now that they know *They can operate this way and have sweeping influence, it sets a precedent for future coups or phony investigations. Proof that it all works and can be very effective – even using CIA sources. Do you really think it is only Trump who would be subject to this radical insurrection of an interconnected cabal? Think again.

Imagine the extreme irony of Democrats doing a major investigation and impeachment process over digging dirt on a political opponent… while what they have done for 4 years was a political dirt-digging operation on a candidate and then a president.

This whole thing combined is nothing more than an effort to bring down the President, and all it has ever been for three years. Now they bring in the IG of itself, to justify itself, by posing as an independent critic of itself. And all predicated on grade-A BS.

Of, by, and for Deep State

Our government was weaponized against a political opponent. Obama politicized it entirely and then it naturally became weaponized. The problem for Democrats is that it was not politicized or weaponized by Trump. We know the beginning, the means, and the desired outcome — none of which aligns with Trump’s objectives.

Isn’t it extremely odd that no one would pay any attention to Ukraine before? You could not force media/coverage to talk about Ukraine. Why? The many tentacles DNC and Democrats had working in Ukraine. To even mention Ukraine was labeled a conspiracy theory. Ukraine itself was branded as a conspiracy. Now Ukraine is elevated to the most important place at the intersection of corruption and politics, at the most critical time in national politics. But Trump didn’t do all that.

Isn’t it also funny that after the Trump rally in Florida, the media is squealing like stuffed pigs about the president’s use of the word Bullshit? Yet it is the one word in our language that could possibly encompass all *They and their media allies have done to him and our last election. That word cuts through the smoke and mirrors.

And still the only thing that matters to these people is the next election, and defeating Trump. That government is still politicized and weaponized, ready and available. Media is still *Its biggest ally. Democrats are still engaged in election politics against their political opponent – and wiling to use any means at their disposal against it. (that opponent has also become the people, as it always does!)

Then came the IG report that media spins as an expected barn-burner that isn’t. Apparently they got their way. The report they refused to acknowledge as necessary or meaningful before, suddenly now becomes a central asset to knock down any “conspiracies” about what really took place in the 2016 election. (the truth)

According to these media reports: the Counterintelligence investigation on Trump was properly predicated and properly launched. So the rest is justified history.

That means it is 4-500 pages of meaningless procedural minutia that did not generally affect the overall investigation. Thus, the investigation was credible while there are outstanding procedural, process problems. That concept needs some explaining.

Message: nothing to see here. Move along. Government was justified in its overreaching investigation which turned into a full-blown bloodless coup. More CYA for the cover-up.

Even the Bullshit is getting old — calling a spade what it is, and an IG Report what it is.

Impeachment Ground Zero: narratives and lies

A cartoon needs to be drawn of today’s events, and the caption should read

“This is your government on politics.”

In the media, historian Jon Meacham on MSNBC certified that Republicans are a Jonestown Cult. Pelosi has called Trump an imposter. Media are far from finished on this day of revision and government radicalized by politics – made to MSNBC’s order.

Fiona Hill, another Dem star witness, posits how it must be impossible for two nations to interfere or meddle in our elections at the same time. So the Russian hoax theme is on full display. And the people that push it are again on the world stage.

Somewhere in the near background of Moscow, is a laughing Putin that Democrats are impeaching Trump over Ukraine. He couldn’t have written a better script.

Speaking of scripts and writers, Democrats’ lousy drama is bad enough but their screenwriting is even worse.

Mark Levin Smacks Down Fox’s Ed Henry

Another leftist media talking point explodes on Fox.

Ed Henry goes down in flames repeating the lamestream’s verbiage.

“Your question is not honest”:
Mark Levin blasts Fox’s Henry about Trump-Ukraine phone call

See: https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/news/your-question-is-not-honest-mark-levin-blasts-foxs-ed-henry-for-trump-ukraine-phone-call/

No one wants to stand up for right and wrong. Just stick to the lying leftist, media narrative. Stick to the lousy script.

Lamestream Media is not in the news business, they are in the narrative business.

Henry is not concerned about the 3-year Big Dig operation on Trump. That’s copacetic.

“Are you okay with that….are you okay with that?” I’m sick of that.

Media Vultures

In the good old days, Johny Carson might make a joke in his monologue something like “the media is so bad”. To which Ed McMahon would say “how bad is it, Johnny?” Carson would nail it saying “it’s so bad that ….” But those days are gone and so are most of the jokes. Now it’s sort of pathetic that media is the standing joke. But no one is laughing.

In those days the media might have taken a cue from the national criticism. Not today. Judging by their current reaction to criticism, they cannot be shamed or even insulted. However, they feel so offended that Trump called them the enemy of the people.

As the IG report on Comey came out, media took a pass for the most part. CNN didn’t really mention it. MSNBC looked for anything else to talk about, including the Dick Cheney hunting mishap. What happened was the IG was compelled to put out an 80 page report on what Comey did.

Last week, CNN foisted the bombshell canard about an asset in the Kremlin that had to be whisked out because Trump was about to out him. Except it didn’t happen. Well that storyline got dropped real quick. What asset, what story?

That story was probably meant to detract from the not so convenient news about the left’s coup and the investigation of it. Sure, no one needs to bother with that.

Then we have the big story about another Kavanaugh accusation. The witness does not remember the incident. NYT was forced to back peddle and said they inadvertently left that part of it out of the story. They had to delete tweets and edit it. The author of the column threw NYT under the buss for having the policy of not naming witnesses.

So naturally that part got left out because of their policy. Say what? You mean NYT cannot mention a witness doesn’t remember anything without naming her?

While over at CNN, they discussed the non-story. Paul Begala let it be known that Democrats will never stop on the Kavanaugh issue. He said they are going to keep it alive forever. It will never ever die. So truth or reality means nothing to those folks.

NYT committed another intentional error when it said in Tweeting a piece on 9-11 that 18 years ago planes took aim at the Twin Towers in NY. They went further than ILhan Omar saying said that the planes did it. Omar at least grumbled that some people did something — without saying who or what. See how the left works? Then NYT had to delete and edit that storyline, too. But it did fit with media ignoring the 9-11 commemoration.

This is not news. The lamestream media are in the narrative business. It isn’t news at all.

Some people did do something, all right. Well, it was not rogue keyboards conspiring.

9-11 The Infamy Wears Off

It is that important national day of 9-11, once again, with all that it entangles. I find myself still in a constant state of mourning for all the families and great loss of that day, 18 years ago today — feeling more like it’s been 18 months. The kind of loss so big that it always leaves a lump in my throat.

But now, on this day, I am also in mourning for something else. I mourn the loss of CNN, too. Yes, you heard me right, grief not grievance.

I remember back in the early 90’s when CNN was a fledgling news channel as it covered the first Iraq war, Dessert Storm. I recall C-130 Hercules transport planes flying non-stop overhead 24 hours a day in a perpetual pattern. I was told that’s what they were.

For the up to date information, you could turn to CNN as a source for news. Wolf Blitzer was on location there somewhere reporting what was going on. It was called the first televised war — even if that was a distortion. CNN was one voice in a vacuum demanding real-time information. We needed to know what was happening in a country finding its war and defensive posture. CNN was there. Maybe reports were not complete or up to the second but it is all we had. In fact, before it started we were well aware of circumstances via media reports. No internet to rely on either.

Contrast that with the menu of cable news we have now, with Internet and social media compliments. It’s almost hard to imagine that CNN was so prominent of a news source then. But those days are gone, and so is CNN as a credible news source.

So today I am mourning that loss as well as 9-11. Back on 9-11, 2001, CNN tried to keep up with a slurry of news. They tried, at least temporarily, to provide unbiased coverage. I have to say, by then, Fox did a better job. Cable went commercial free for days in wall-to-wall coverage. We were mostly a unified nation, even if George Bush was the President. (Not Al Gore)

The bad guys were in the deserts and mountains of Afghanistan. A new area we didn’t know that much about. So much to do and say. Before a military response, there were debates in Congress and they lined up supporting force. Only a few outliers.

Well, with all the mourning today, there are a number of things regarding 9-11 that can anger me like almost nothing else. Those are: lack of respecting or accepting the attack for what it was, trivializing the sanctity of the day; drawing unreasonable parallels or equating other acts of violence to it; using that historical event to promote other partisan political agendas; giving short shrift to victims of that day that continue to mount; or depriving those victims of dialogue and justice that still evades them all these years later. Or, basically misusing the memory or sacred observance of the day. (even 18 years after)

But CNN manages to do about all those, on the day it is memorialized in 2019. And they did it as a matter of programming, which reveals planning. I could list endless poof and examples but that is more writing than I care to do now. I shouldn’t have to that is obvious. It is not only CNN but the entire left does the same. It is not nit-picking.

So cable news chose to talk about gun control, the impeachment agenda and normal partisan gotcha politics. There are 364 other days in the year and that is not enough, they have to corrupt this one too, like everything else?

No, they could not even be bothered to respect the memory and events of the day. They must defile the day’s memory and its significant importance. Nothing is sacred.

Congratulations, CNN, because today you earned the “enemy of the people” title anew!

Media’s Sellout, Tale of the Toll

From a secluded and undisclosed location, I have been thinking up wacky things to write. Not actually but play along. This time I have found yet another provocative idea.

It seems the outrageous and provocative get all the press’s attention these days. Well, except on the right, where we get banned or marginalized for saying what sounds crazy to media’s ears. In that strain, this must offend them and presses their ridicule buttons.

So in this episode of crazy talk with your inflammatory host, this one fits with the other stranger than fiction stuff I’ve thought up for years. “Conspiracies” are so yesterday.

But it starts with the quaint story of Obama we all know. Now that he has finally been out of office for a few years, where is the little scum merchant and what has he been up to? Oh, he’s hobnobbing with the rich and powerful. He was sailing in paradise, selling faux books, still giving occasional lectures that “this is not who we are” and purchasing his own multi-million dollar abode on the Martha’s Vineyard coast. The world is his oyster.

Between all that, I’m sure he has time to follow the news. Remember he always counted on it to tell him what he did not know when in office. “I just found out in the press, like you,” were code words. Living the high life, it turns out, is not the only thing he dabbles in.

In my scenario, Obama managed to do what no other president has done or maybe no other single person. (yes, you can argue whether he really is a single human being or a poster boy for the global power conglomerate) He managed this accomplishment, or solidified it, before leaving office. Now he is in the catbird seat enjoying the fruits.

Obama now controls the media. That is for all practical purposes and matters of official capacity. He controls the whole cabal of the national press. He cannot continue on without them and they cannot operate without him attached to the masthead. How is this you might ask? It’s really very simple. They gave up their loyalty and freedom of the press long ago. Being out of office means nothing… yet it means everything at the same time.

He can finally assert his stealthy but direct control in the way he couldn’t before. It doesn’t involve daily phone calls or meetings with boards, though it easily could. He doesn’t have to. That may have been a subtle seduction at first but progressed over time.

For all intents and purposes he owns the media cabal. They sold themselves to Obama dirt cheap, he only now has realized the totality of that control. He is hardly what you’d expect from any other former president. I do like saying former but that means very little. With the control of the press apparatus, he does not have to be the president anymore. It makes no difference. He is the guy at the top and what he says goes. No he doesn’t have to busy himself in daily personnel decisions. All that mundane stuff is just done in his honor.

And the American press know it whether they care to admit it or not. They are fine with this incestuous relationship but it is a done deal. They are at his beckon call if he avails himself of it or not. There is no question it operates for him exclusively. Sure, that is where the global control comes in you might say, as it does with his ideology. Though he is the king of the national press and media operation.

For the press cabal, this is for keeps. They are there explicitly to defend him and his legacy. They are there to keep history being written a certain way, to his benefit. They are there to guarantee it just like there was an insurance poliy in the event Trump was elected. Actually, it is all part of the same cabal. It operates to protect Obama. You could not even hope for a better situation than that.

If you want proof of this relationship and what it means in events, you only have to look at the aftermath coverage of the Mueller Report and the Report on Comey last week. Rabid press coverage validates this incestuous pattern. They will do anything to protect Obama, whatever it takes or costs. Medias’ fate is wrapped with Obama’s legacy and vice versa.

At first they seemed like a cute couple in puppy love, and then evolved into the evil power duo which functions as one criminal enterprise. Slaves to agenda, they could not function apart from each other. Someone has to to say what is obviously the rotten reality.

Editorial Down

Get this, the lamestream media is finally wondering if people might be tuned out? What gives them that idea? They also complain that it is noisy.

Frankly, even I am getting a little tired of responding to the triggered editorials. Seen one crazed flame-out editorial, you seen them all. In this era at least. Yet I’ll describe what you need to know about this rant. I’m only amazed that they haven’t run out of adjectives to describe Trump yet. Now they are working on us voters who supported him.

But this will have to be a twofer because another flame-out column occurred on the subject days ago. Again, a Washington Post columnist. What is it with WaPo, do they believe they are leading the sedition? It is the left’s way of creating the narrative for the week.

https://www.foxnews.com/media/trump-republican-party-2020-burn-down

In that one she calls for burning down the Republican Party. And she says they must get rid of every last Trump supporter or we will reassemble and do this again. She only says what all the Left thinks. Then, just like clockwork, she ran off to MSNBC to spread her venom on air to anyone that had missed her vitriolic hatred in Washington Post.

No, these people never take a break. So now another one pops up to suggest people have tuned out. Gee, what was your first clue? The people tuned out months ago. The only ones flailing about are the Leftists and socialist radicals. So MSM has been talking to themselves for months, which is kind of funny. If they really are so “exhausted,” wouldn’t you think they would have toned it down or eased up a smidgen?

Another indicator that’s a lie, like everything else they say. Actually, they should be exhausted, they tried everything they could to attack Trump and remove him from office. Now they admit they are exhausted. That really is funny, they’re exhausted.

Maybe they should have realized that before driving themselves bat shit crazy. At least they drove the entire Left crazy with them. Maybe what they mean is they exhausted all their resources, too, and Trump is still there and so are we. We aren’t going away.

They certainly have run out of anything new. We’ve seen and heard it all before anyway. They just repeat the same old stuff. And you think people are tuning out? Wonder why? It sounds even worse than it did the first time.

But people don’t believe the news anymore now. They noticed that too. The media has even less credibility as time goes on. If they all wouldn’t have fallen off the side of Alcatraz, they might have some cred. One thing for sure, they will never admit they made a mess of themselves and the press. But they have no one else to blame — not Trump, not the people, not even Republican’s. This is all their craziness.

When Drama Meets Trauma

Look out; today I am going to tell you something that will shock your conscience. In fact, you might never look at the issue the same way again. This will change your thinking about it. I promise you, the things I will reveal will alter the national discussion about the issue. All carefully sourced, of course. (File that next to all the other bunk.)

Mark this date on your calendar. (as you would any other date)

How many times have you heard things like this? It’s called dramatic flare and I have about as much of it as anyone. It is sensationalism. News and media often use it. Scratch that, they are extreme addicts of it. That sets us up for some drama karma.

I sometimes wonder if they are sensationalizing that much, then what is the purpose? I mean whether the story is sensational or not is the real point. Not whether one can breathe some sensational effect into it. (that is not the story) So I am caught in a quandary over all the need to sensationalize. Isn’t there enough of it out there already?

Like when Sean Hannity comes on every weeknight telling us “my sources are telling me the stuff that is coming will shock the conscience of the nation.” He says it at least every other night. “If reports are true, and I believe they are.”

Then after that, nothing. There is no proverbial explosion of “news” too hot to handle. No stunning revelations that will mark this place in time to be remembered forever. Nope, it’s dullsville afterward. Of course the leading question is ‘what does he know, what is this big news?’ It starts a web of questions: “Are we really going to find out everything that happened this time?” “Are people finally going to jail over this corruption.”… “Is this when accountability finally starts, for real this time?’

Then he or any of the other news pushers tell you to “stay tuned.” In other words, just continue to sit on the edge of your seats wringing your hands, waiting. Even as they are speaking, stay glued to your seat and do not change the channel. “We’ll tell you when we come back…” Uh huh, day after day.

I once compared this idiom of news coverage as the equivalent of marching people up to the rooftop and telling them “now just wait, we’ll come back for you. We are going to give you the news you’ve been hoping for. Just hang on and….wait!” How far off is that?

And when they don’t return, the story doesn’t come, or the news they hope for doesn’t arrive, then what? Well “just continue to wait.” It only works so long.

Notice what happened to Rachael Maddow, her ratings went into the toilet. It was after 2 and half years of fomenting promises that this will happen and that will happen. It didn’t… and now she isn’t — the top news prognosticator even of the left.

How many times have we heard all these things? Benghazi ring a bell? It proves the rule not the exemption. Do they think we’ve all been hypnotized? (cue soundtrack)

Face it we are in perpetual wait mode for all of it. When media does not deliver, it does not bode well. That’s all I’m saying. The last thing you want to think is that a person is only doing it for their own self-promotion. But these days it’s the first thing you must think about. That happens all the time.

Though the people just want honest information. They want the story and nothing but the story. And we get anything but the story. We get hype or “irrational exuberance.”

A word about my anonymity.

Some people may wonder why the anonymity? I can tell you what it is not. I am not a top Hollywood celeb hiding behind anonymity to protect my conservative views because I will be blacklisted if it were known. I am not an embedded insider informant, veiled in a cloak of anonymity. I am not a person who’s life would be wrecked if my identity were exposed.

No to all of that, however, I do protect my identity on the Internet from trolls or people who attack the messenger rather than the message. People who only want to use your identity as a weapon against you.

We’ve now seen what the left is really capable of. They’ll stop and nothing when it comes to politics. Why do some people refuse to engage in politics? It’s not hard to understand. The nature of the radical politics of weaponizing everything today is very profound and real. There are no limits for the Left. While on this side, we’re only a happy coalition of one.

Waiting causes other symptoms. They are all just chasing the news. They are not running down the story, they are chasing the news cycle. And Trump proved this better than anyone ever did. Sometimes I think he wants to send them on a wild journey. They will literally spend hours discussing what he says. Heck, Democrats want to impeach him for his words. They’d like to impeach him for his thoughts, too, but that is even more difficult. They’re working on it.

So what is it we all do while we just wait? Tap our fingers? We have lives, we do our thing. The fact that a bombshell hasn’t dropped is good cause or reason to think one is not in the offing anytime soon. Until then, we wait like trained seals in a circus. (sorry, they don’t have circuses anymore. We are the circus.) If we follow their breadcrumbs that is.

Like many people, sure, I’m tired of the waiting. “It’s coming.” I’ll tell you what I am not expecting and what is likely not coming — even if I am hoping. I don’t expect justice to take them all down like dominos in a couple of months. I’d say the odds on that are greater than hitting the lottery. As some say, “it just is not going to happen… or any time soon.”

A personal note:

Sometimes if I am writing a special piece, not always, I might be listening to music or a song. I’m not claiming it has any direct influence on content but it helps inspire me. For instance in writing this I was listening to “It keeps you running” by Michael McDonald and the Doobie Brothers. Oh that voice. Now you decide if it had any effect, or not?

But that isn’t the purpose of the music. It is just a tool like an aid. It doesn’t contribute directly to content. But it can help you get there, to that space.

See media uses the dramatic and sensational as a tool. it is supposed to get you there. But it’s not the subject. When it becomes the entire self-propelled point, then it’s the problem not a vehicle.

(For future reference: don’t worry, I will let you know when I’m listening to Tchaikovsky – 1812 Overture with cannons. But I think you’ll know anyway.)

And when the media’s Drama Karma kicks in, I think we’ll know it.

Anti-Semitic NYT and CNN editors

The Wrap

“Tom Wright-Piersanti, a senior editor at the New York Times, said Thursday that he is “deeply” sorry for some past tweets and that they have been deleted.

“I have deleted tweets from a decade ago that are offensive. I am deeply sorry,” he wrote.

Tweets cited by Breitbart no longer appear on Wright-Piersanti’s page and include a January 2010 message saying, “I was going to say ‘Crappy Jew Year,’ but one of my resolutions is to be less anti-Semitic. So… HAPPY Jew Year. You Jews.”

Another seemingly deleted tweet reported by Breitbart references the “Jew-police.”

 

“CNN Photo Editor Resigns After Old Anti-Semitic Tweets About ‘Jewish Pigs’ Resurface”

Mohammed Elshamy’s Twitter account contained a number of derogatory statements about Jewish people posted in 2011

Stop The Instinctive Naivete

Joan Rivers used to say, “can we talk?” America, can we talk? I have about had it with our conservative or Republican brethren, while meaning well, putting on pretenses about what the left says. It really is sickening and naïve.

This is an instinctive reaction for some people. Just stop it! That is ignorant.

One of Hannity’s favorite talking points about the 2016 election is how media fell for the Russia hoax story. Can we dispense with that bullshit now? Mark Levin called Hannity on that one night. He told Sean no, MSM were in on it all along and were part of it. But they never just “fell for it.”

After his 2020 campaign kickoff, Trump did an interview with Hannity. Sure enough, Hannity reflexively used his talking point that media “fell for” that charade all the way. But immediately Trump disagreed and corrected him. He said MSM knew and were in on it, but they didn’t “fall for” anything. Why does our side do this so often?

AOC just made statements that, in fact, we have concentration camps on our border. A particularly nasty comment. So Fox talks about it and Laura says she is dumb or those comments aren’t right. She is shocked at how media are defending it. But the MSM and Democrats feel compelled. Let them defend it, or try.

Let’s get this straight, she said exactly what she meant to say. Don’t attribute it to some misstatement. And don’t expect her to apologize. It was entirely intentional. The reaction was predictable because she intended it. The comment was inflammatory by design. Being provocative is in their DNA as radicals. It is what they do. Who can attribute it to error? They get the desired benefits. Again, it is their M/O; it’s what they do.

That would be giving the media or AOC way too much benefit of the doubt. They are part of the radical strategy. Language is nasty because they mean it to be nasty. It is a form of sandbagging to misattribute their vile intent. It makes their sandbagging more effective.

The Great Divorce

This could be a long piece but it doesn’t need to be. Democrats and the left cannot attack Trump on his actions as president. So they attack him for his words.

They want to impeach him for his words and what he says. That would require separating Trump’s words from his deeds, which will take what I call the Great Divorce. The left looks petty playing this word police game. And what hypocrisy that is.

Fear mongering meets comedy in news

You know CNN has gone downhill. But do you want to know how far down they’ve gone? They hired someone to mock them. That’s right, in case they hadn’t realized it.

In desperation for viewers, they brought on Comedy Central comedian, Colin Quinn. He told Anderson Cooper in an interview that it was a political and cultural humor that took no sides. He said all he wanted from the program is for people to just laugh.

Okay, on the face. But let me understand this: all week long CNN tells us what dangerous times we are in, on the verge if not in Constitutional crisis, the likes of which we have never experienced before. Be very afraid for what calamity our country is now in because of Trump in the White House. From scholars to the street, fear is very real and justified.

Now they bring on a guy to make you laugh at it all. Yes, laugh at the polarization, the division, the incessant identity politics and the ridiculous nature or state of our political system. It’s over, he says, we’re done. But we are supposed to laugh ourselves into a frenzy over it. Right. The country is lost and we are on the cusp of civil war.

So tell CNN that all their hogwash, fear mongering is for naught because we are now going to laugh our asses off at it all. Yep, that’s just what I was thinking. Laugh your asses off at the catastrophic crisis that CNN makes of it all. But will liberals think it is funny?

I wonder if this is going to be a regular thing as they claim? It sure does set the tone for their “news” coverage though. On a side note, he is funny and makes some points but then drifts right into the anti-Trump rants. Though that is probably why they hired him. Ironic how it makes much of CNN’s apocalyptic scare tactics look so petty by comparison.

So now they are trying comic relief on their audience? Kids do not try that at home.

The right has been laughing a while. There comes a point beyond jokes. Is it funny?

But maybe it is a metaphor? CNN and Comedy Central have just switched places now.

Coming to a head of Deep State collusion

So this is what our partners in British press are up to?

No holds Barred: Trump and his troops push for imperial presidency

With his compliant attorney general, the man in the White House is taking aim at the constitutional balance of powers. — [I think they misspelled ‘competent’ AG.]

/….

Congressman Jared Huffman of California said: “It’s a smokescreen, obviously an attempt to change the subject like everything else he does. I almost don’t want to dignify it because it’s so preposterous that any time someone investigates Donald Trump or disagrees with Donald Trump they are being treasonous or they need to be locked up.

“This is a slippery slope to a banana republic if this is where we’re heading. And I think most Americans get that. You just don’t call for your political enemies to be investigated and jailed in the United States,” Huffman said.”

https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2019/may/19/william-barr-donald-trump-robert-mueller-congress

Imperial what? It doesn’t seem too imperial to me. An Imperial Congress, maybe.

Yet that is exactly what Democrats and the left are doing, and have been doing since even before the election — having their political enemies investigated. Just that we were not to know the depths of this incestuous cabal. Odd to hear British press complaining after allies there were also involved. Pointing the finger back at Trump has gotten a bit old.

And if that were not enough crazy talk for you, consider Nancy Pelosi’s broad smear attack (wrap-up smear) on Trump, saying he “is engaged in a coverup.” She followed that projection by claiming Trump is crying out for his impeachment. If impeachment can swing by the seats of their pants, they even plan to blame Trump for their impeachment scheme.

So, right on cue they are outraged Trump pulled the trigger to declassify documents and have AG Barr, with investigators, look into the real charade and coverup that started the whole cabal. And guess what? It wasn’t Trump that did that!

Last but not least, a congresswoman also said that “we cannot do our job in congress unless we can hold the president accountable.” Accountable for what, their plot and coup?

Now refusing to do their own job in the House, they want to blame that on Trump too.

The MSM Glare

Did you ever notice how many of the regular mainstream media people have this look? It’s like a look when a child is caught doing something, like a guilty look they can’t cover up.

There’s also a feigned innocence look. They want to convey they have no agenda and that they are clueless about their real intentions. “Whatever could those be?”

Well, that’s what I see a lot of when I watch them. It always makes me wonder, so do they know how bad they sound? Do they know they are just lying through their teeth or trying to deceive us? And usually I say, sure they do! As that’s the point of it all.

But, the real question is do they have a conscience or a speck of guilt about it? Is that what I see in that look? Anyway, I wonder. You might also wonder how they sleep at night or how they live with themselves? Those are a few of my questions about them.

A pity though that I have no optimistic conclusions about it. Just observations.

Demonizing Trump Doesn’t Work

Monica Crowley lays out the law of diminishing returns regarding Trump.

The one lesson Trump’s enemies just can’t understand

By Monica Crowley – – Wednesday, April 24, 2019 | Washington Times
ANALYSIS/OPINION:

There is one lesson from President Nixon that applies not to President Trump, but to his adversaries on the left and in the media. “Always remember,” Nixon said during his 1974 farewell address, “others may hate you, but those who hate you don’t win unless you hate them, and then you destroy yourself.”

Mr. Trump enjoys toying with their hatred, particularly as it’s destroying them instead of destroying him.

In economic theory, the law of diminishing returns refers to the point at which profits or benefits of an endeavor begin to decrease as the resources put into it stay constant or increase.

We are long past that point with regard to the relentless assault on Mr. Trump. The pile-on began the moment he announced his candidacy and continues to this day, resulting not in his ruination but in his success. The more they hit him, the more resilient he becomes and the more voters rally to his cause. It’s not as if the left isn’t aware of this. They witnessed the phenomenon during the campaign and were powerless to stop it.

Now, however, with the public release of special counsel Robert Mueller’s final report, we can expect an entirely new level of attacks — and diminishing returns for his opponents.

The world can now see that Mr. Trump was telling the truth all along: Neither he nor anyone associated with him “colluded” with Russia to effect the 2016 election and he did not obstruct justice.

To the contrary, Attorney General William Barr highlighted the unprecedented level of cooperation from Mr. Trump and his team.

Now that Mueller’s Report is out, I can’t feel any relief

Trips down memory lane are not always positive or don’t always end that way.

Now that the report is out, I can’t feel any relief. It should be relief that it is over but it isn’t because it goes on and on. It is meant to continue ad nauseam.

Why did they do an exhaustive investigation on Russia’s election meddling without talking about what Obama did? But they can talk about every detail of what Trump did?

Weeks ago, Comey the persistent talked about “so many questions.After the Report, he says “so many answers.” I think he has it exactly backwards. We knew so much before the report came out. Now that it is published it poses so many questions. The jig is up.

Why haven’t those who committed offenses been brought to justice? Like Brennan, Clapper, Strzok, Glenn Simpson, Steele, Comey, McCabe? And don’t think we forgot about it; what was all the unmasking by Obama officials doing for it all? Where was Loretta Lynch when all this was going on? What about meetings between DOJ officials and Obama in the Oval Office, like on January 5th 2017?

But if you follow mainstream media’s lead now, this report information is all so important. It is alarming. All this should bother you and me. This influence of Russia is so severe that Blumenthal now says our democracy is under siege, still is, and that it is an act of war. And then prizewinner congresswoman Jackie Speier says that it shows we would actually not have Trump as President but for Russia’s actions. Talk about a dramatic stretch.

So in my hypothetical mind, I’m trying to figure out if Russia was that influential and the deciding factor in 2016, then I have a few questions. It represents Russia as winning. Doesn’t it make our democracy fragile? Haven’t you given Russia way too much credit? And if Speier thinks that Russia succeeded, then whom did they beat? Wasn’t the guy who was in the Oval Office responsible for what they did? So why is the blame coming down on an outsider, incoming president?

Now Comey has another seismic revelation about “so many answers.” What are they? How does Trump being pissed off about appointing a Special Counsel answer any questions? Sure he would be mad that they would do that to him. He was only in office for months. What the hell is there really to investigate in the White House if this is about Russia?

When I was much younger, I remember people would wait for the next new phrase or word to be coined so that they could run out and start using it. Well, it seemed like they were just waiting for the next one. You know them all, slang and urban lingo. Using the lingo made one seem popular or cool.

One of the things some of those trendier people would do is travel to another area and use their newly slung slang to others there to see if it was popular, and so it could hopefully be picked up as cool. Sometimes it worked and sometimes it didn’t. Sometimes people looked at them and said “what did you say?” Language is like a joke, if you have to explain it then it’s a dud and falls flat.

Comey is like one of those guys trying to set a trend. Get everyone to repeat something, whether they know the meaning of it or not. This would prove him hip and popular. He is desperate. He wants to be right even when he’s wrong – a thinker and an artisan.

Seems to me mainstream media is a lot like that too. Just get everyone repeat a bunch of nonsense so it can seem like a popular thought or idea. And that does work many times. Minions repeat the talking points of the Left with amazing clarity and regularity, right to the phraseology. Well, it is almost a dialect.

But then eventually one learns that the language is not really the thing to control, the dialogue is. Whoever controls that wins the game.

When Comey was pondering “so many questions,” he insinuated that there were so many questions to be asked. But not any we didn’t already know the answers to. The only relevant questions left were “why aren’t people in jail and why are these corrupt people still in their top tier jobs?” We wanted to know who was doing this witch hunt “investigation” and why? The who is almost easier than the why.

So many questions.

Other than that, we didn’t want to know about some setup meeting in Trump Tower with a Russian who was collaborating and working with Simpson – months before the election. We weren’t asking what Flynn was doing before or after Trump took office? Those were planted questions. We weren’t hanging on the edge of our seats wondering who spoke to a Russian and exactly what they said, word for word?

We might have long wondered that if all this was going on since 2014, then what did that last president do about it? If he did nothing, why not? What was he waiting for? What was the answer to the probing Russia problem? If all these officials had a degree of certainty what was going on, then what did they do and/or why didn’t they do something? You know, those kind of pertinent questions. And we didn’t need all the drama about the inner workings of Trump’s campaign about what they were doing.

Do you smell the deflection and diversion?

Well, only if this entire thing was a setup from the beginning, aimed at Trump, would we need to know all that. We should have wondered what Obama did to stop it, or why not? We should have wondered what did Obama know and when did we know it? See, so many things just don’t make sense like a language barrier.

A naïve person may wonder why such a barrier exists?

But most of us know, because they want to rearrange our language and thoughts about it. In other words, they want to change our perception of events. Normally that is called revision, only they were trying to do it in real time. Before we could know or understand events as they happened, they wanted to train our thoughts to see them in another way, through an alternative reality. And they wanted us to believe it and not what we were seeing or what we already knew. It does sound a lot like Benghazi too.

See, Obama was already skilled in the art of controlling the dialogue or manipulating events for his benefit. In fact, there was a certain pride in being able to do that. To this day, if you mention Benghazi or Hillary’s servergate, you get the same tired response from the left. “Oh, there were multiple investigations about that and it found nothing.” Nothing? Really? People died and yet there was no problem with it and nothing sinister. With Hillary they say “but you cannot let it go. She was investigated and cleared of any wrong doing.” Right, cleared? Remember how the video caused Benghazi, a spontaneous attack?

Notice what they did in both those cases. They immediately began to try to control the narrative, since narrative is all that matters. They substitute an alternate narrative and spread it far and wide. The saturation point is when someone mentions the event and hoards of people immediately respond with the same promoted answer.

So Comey now says, “so many answers.” Naturally that is what he sees, answers to what happened, when it really gives you none. What we got were alternative sound bites substituted for answers that tell you nothing. But yet they are not done because they tell us they are going to continue this investigation, now in Congress. They call the Mueller Report a “roadmap for Congress”. Was that how it worked for Hillary or Benghazi? Of course not. The investigation was supposed to be the definitive end.

Answers, Comey? McCabe also did his first interview, since his book, on MSNBC. He said the same thing, agreeing that Mueller’s Report was a “roadmap” for congress to use and follow. A roadmap to where? Yes, we know that too. Another answer it provided.

But the real questions still exist, just as they did while they rolled this charade out, but concentrate on their substituted answers. Because the real questions are about them and not Trump. And they are about Obama’s administration.

Well, one can conclude the whole ordeal was used as a coverup, which is still going on, for Obama and Hillary. It was a convenient use of Russia meddling to hang it around Trump and pretend he is the problem, while they wall off an entire warehouse of abuses from the public under Obama’s administration. But this placeholder is wearing very thin. In fact, it is hard to believe they could have kept this entire thing up as long and hard as they have. It is now going into the next election cycle. Of course this Report will also provide opposition material against Trump. But that is what it was all along from the beginning.

Obama found a use for another problem, Russia, to use it against his opponent, and cover up all his other problems. Meanwhile, Obama’s personal records are sealed from public while all Trump’s personal records are to be annexed, and then spread far and wide to the public. Funny how these truth-challenged people don’t care about the real answers.

New Deal…. Old Problem

If the 2020 scrimmage warm up is teaching us anything, it is holding up a reflection of what our future really could look like with champions of doom. Not a pretty picture.

I know, some past elections were a positive time of reflection when we could look at what is ahead with enthusiasm. It re-energized people on the concept of what is possible. But that is reversed in this election. With fear and anxiety we can look at what we see roll out in enemy plans. I say enemy because it is.

Another dynamic at work is an old principle. The old mantra is divide and conquer. It has been the strategy of wars and arguments over centuries. But something else is afoot now. We see that unification can be a threat as well. How so?

Well, the left continually hones its lockstep unification. Maybe their objective is to divide us but their unity is much of the problem. This mob mentality grows its obsession to stomp over anything in its way. Unity is its holy grail. The right never operated like that. But mob rule has had its successes over years. Worse, it has had a wearing effect on the right.

Think of all the media has done in 2 years. It’s goal is to break the enthusiasm of the right. Tear at the foundations of what keeps people together. It jackhammers on the will of the people daily. Dividing opponents may be their objective, but their unity is the threat.

It is a coalition of disgruntled, grievance-riddled groups – all with their own demands – that have united under an anti-American banner of resistance, sedition and disdain for anything productive for our country. Time-honored principles are cast aside.

That has all been replaced by a negative critique of America. It is an endless criticism of the US, what it has stood for and things we held dear as a people. Then it fills the airwaves with its critique, as the prevailing mainstream thought.

This coalition despises any memory of a good America. Progress and forward are code words in its obsession to blot out and deconstruct the past. The objective is to divide us from the America we know, the real America. Does fundamental transformation, of our political and economic systems, sound exciting?

For example, Bernie Sanders did a townhall with Fox in Bethlehem PA. The location didn’t matter as much as the content. Bernie came prepared, like usual, with his supporters.

The questions were asked, how would you pay for it? Explain your healthcare plans? All the questions morphed into his critique on America. Remember too, his 2016 campaign really never ended. So he has been campaigning all along. Everything he said was just a criticism of what is America. Naturally, his socialist ideas were embedded in it. But it was a deacon’s pie of class warfare, political and economic animosity, linked with the promises of free stuff to solve all the problems. They bring their own problems and solutions.

The first problem it needs to solve is the vote. So buying votes becomes their number one priority. He looks to be gaining with young people in that department.

The prescription for their socialist wave is a never-ending criticism America. It’s a catchy habit. They don’t have to answer or be accountable for anything. Just blame it on America. Except they have no answers. Their only interest is in using the critique as a tool to break down America. Break down our will, break down our economy, break down our politics. Then they substitute their mob rule for the will of the people.

So Bernie showed us nothing new. It was all the old mantra. Every question to him was turned around and redirected at someone else. He has a book now, did you hear? Of course he does. They all do. His wealth is justified, you know, while everyone else’s is questioned. Do they really need that much money? Bernie justified capitalism while railing against it. He made it clear he would not apologize for capitalizing on a best-selling book. But others need to apologize for their offensive, greedy wealth.

This mob rule doesn’t have to be a real majority; just a very loud, demanding one. They have never been this close to consummating power as they are now. Then they will align themselves with every evil ally they can. We cannot allow this to take hold.

When the socialists and commies talk they sound so sincere. Though they are far from innocent. They sound angry most of the time. I think anger is their emphasis for justification. It is like a self-confirming tool meant to convince others they are right.

Berine has another rhetorical device. When given any question about a policy, he says he voted against this or that. That leaves him off the hook of accountability? Then he has to answer no serious questions about it. He just says he voted against it. He was against everything, but what he is for should scare the hell out of you.

He also started by saying that he bases his philosophy on his beliefs. That is interesting because that is what it all comes down to, his belief. It is so ingrained in him the word ideologue is not strong enough. At least he admits it all rests on his beliefs. The same as Marxists and commies. And he has a lot of other like-minded people believing it too. Remember how critical belief was to Obama. His whole campaign (and presidency after) was faith-based on belief. He had nothing else of experience. Their belief is the bomb.

Socialists’ picture of America is morbidly disturbing. Well, it isn’t based on the positive.

Open Letter To The Mainstream Media

I write in sympathy to your current predicament. I know you have an extreme lack of credibility and standing with the public. Or maybe you are still in denial? You offend them and they offend you. I know it upsets you.

I feel your pain; but I cannot validate it.

The problem is that it is not Trump’s fault. That must be hard for you to accept, too. Yet it is the truth. Just repeat the words: “our credibility deficit is not Trump’s fault.”

It was not Trump’s fault that before the 2016 election you jumped on the Hillary bandwagon, with no reservations. You were doing her bidding well before the primaries.

When the election did come, by then you had set the perception that she was the winner by all standards and could not lose. Trump had nothing to do with your willful bias. He was not whispering in your ear to give favorable treatment to Hillary, forcing you to do her cleanup and dirty work.

He did not tell you to make things up about him and his supporters just like you all did about Tea Parties. He didn’t choose all your negative coverage of himself and positive coverage for Hillary. That was not in his power or within his influence to do.

He didn’t make you into card-carrying members of the resistance. He didn’t tell you to brand his supporters as racists, bigots, or even domestic terrorists. But you implied they were dumb, uneducated grievance hustlers who were generations out of step with the times. (talk about projection)

We came to the party only to take our part. You came to blacklist us. Sure, you couldn’t quite get the job done, but you expected it to take a toll. To some degree it did. Though you couldn’t defeat or destroy us. After all, you had been trying more subtly to do that for years. But we were not going away. In fact, we were the original resistance. So you fully embraced the banner of resistance after the election. Trump did not make you do that. He only pointed it out. You demurred any criticism because that is the kind of people you are.

We don’t matter. When you ran the daily 24/7 hate Trump media for his first two years, hyping the resistance movement and impeachment, you dug in your heels of sedition. With every leak and anonymous source you could muster, you blazed an historical trail, aligning yourselves with a coup well under way from the first day of Trump’s presidency.

Yes, I can sympathize with your pain and agony of it all. Well, I can because we have felt that prejudice against us from the public for decades. Your part in that campaign against us has not gone unrecognized. We are well aware of it and your attitude against we the people. We know how you feel about the people and flyover country.

We know how you despise the people’s mindset… and their choice.

So when Donald Trump said some members of the mainstream media – not all — were enemies of the people, he was right. We already knew that. You just confirmed it. When you were offended by that comment, it was not our fault. You did it. When you tried to spin yourselves into victims of that remark, it fell on deaf ears because we have always been the real victims of your schemes.

We get to vote, and were determined to vote regardless what you thought of us. See, you get to cast your vote everyday, as the elitists you are. You want to control dialogue and you couldn’t. The conversation went on around you, even factoring in your heavy hand at the ballot. But you could not control the discussion or the election results. So I can really identify with how you must feel. We’ve felt that way for years and you never cared.

Yes, we all know exactly what it is like to be outcast by the public as troublemakers and crazies. But we were not looking to validate our victimhood. We didn’t have to. It is prima facie in any honest assessment. Along comes media now claiming to be the righteous victims of slander, smear or character assassination to vindicate their cause. It is dishonest. It is self-serving, it is agenda driven and, finally, it is very political.

Now you have laid the record bare for all to see. Only you want your trashed credibility back on a golden platter. That’s just not how any of this works.

Worse than all that, you have also lost credibility with the Left, your handlers and allies. You promised and built up their hopes that you would assist in taking down this president.

When the Mueller report came out and didn’t declare the collusion you promised, your radical base of consumers recoiled. Their hearts and trust were broken. So you have lost on both sides, with your enemies and your allies. Hurts, doesn’t it?

That should have taught you something. But it was your stubborn choices you made every step of the way that are to blame, not Trump. We didn’t destroy your credibility. You did that yourself. We only supplied the means. Remember reporters demanding apologies from Trump? By the way, did you ever apologize for the way you treated the Tea Parties? No, it’s all part of the long record now. It lives on to prove to anyone honestly looking.

You are the victims of your own bias and hatred. Thursday will only validate what we all knew. It will expose you for the liars you were all along. But Trump didn’t do it to you.

It might be time to take some stock and dust off that first amendment to see what is really in it. There is more there than your beloved freedom. And last I checked, you weren’t.

Stelter is the POS of the week

Cable is like a rolling talk show. Uh… and that’s a good thing for a 24/7 premier, worldwide news channel? All from CNN’s publicity mouthpiece. (he’s big on apples and bananas too)

Help me out Brian Stelter. From Steven Crowder, Stelter exposing the pit. Lots of ground.

“Speculation has value too.” That’s it, really sell it there, Brian.

Brian Stelter runs the P/R for the porcelain bowl at CNN.

Another segment for the daily flush. Here’s one where Stelter is owned by Ben Shapiro. Brian then has the audacity to ask why Shapiro doesn’t try to get a job on CNN or NYT so he can change it? First, Brian, you have to show us there is still some redeeming quality.

But unlike you, Stelter, Ben Shapiro actually has a functioning brain. That’s the difference.
