Tiresome Trump Derangement

Over the last couple of weeks, the Democrat Party has come out on the side of the terrorists who planned 9-11, the fanatical mullahs who run Iran and foment global terror, and the murderously violent street gang MS-13 who are known for hacking people to death with machetes.

The attacks against CIA nominee Gina Haspel are particularly disingenuous. If she had been nominated by Obama, the Democrats and media would be replete with stories about courageously shattering the glass ceilings at Langley by appointing the first female CIA Director. Instead, they thought about bringing one of the terrorists who plotted the 9-11 attacks in to testify against her. They wanted to make the case that she was unfit to serve because of “torture” policies that were in place under her boss and predecessor, John Brennan, who was appointed by Obama and approved by a Democrat Majority Senate 63-34.

Democrats also postured when Trump pulled out of the Iran Deal. Remember, Slate once ran an article titled “What Iran Can Teach America About LGBTQ Rights.” Their thesis was that even though Iran is an oppressive, Islamic-Supremacist regime that systematically butchers gays. Donald Trump was actually worse because… well, he just was. And so, LGBTQ had to protest, resist, and vote Democrat forever.

Then, earlier this week, Trump fulfilled a campaign promise made by both his Republican and Democrat predecessors and moved the US embassy in Israel to the Israel capital of Jerusalem. Palestinians tried to rush the Israeli border with Molotov cocktails and small arms, 50 Hamas terrorists and 12 human shields got themselves killed, and the media blamed Trump, of course. The left claims to be outraged that Israel used “disproportionate force” in repelling the Palestinian attack. What a stupid, stupid talking point. Why the hell would anyone be obligated to only use proportional force in defending oneself from an attack? The aggressor does not get to choose how the defender is allowed to defend himself.

Also, during the Gaza riots, a miracle happened: a crippled Palestinian got up and walked.

Then, yesterday, PDT was at a Sanctuary Cities forum in California where he referred to the violent, malevolent animals of MS-13 as “animals.” The media edited his comments and claimed he was referring to all illegal immigrants as “animals.” The same people who have no problem calling NRA members “terrorists” are suddenly incensed that the president called a violent criminal gang “animals.”

But I begin to think that even the people who hate Trump are beginning to tire of it. CNN (and I know this because it’s on in the break room at work) has become a round-the-clock Trump-slam. It’s anti-Trump derangement verges into Onion-territory sometimes (the pic below is not a ‘shop). And it’s ratings, which weren’t good to begin with, are off 30%.

The least covered Big Story in the media right now is the severe leftward lurch of the Democrat Party. Four avowed Socialists won primary elections in Pennsylvania on Tuesday. Democrats on the city council of Seattle, led by an avowed socialist who once proposed confiscating the Boeing aircraft factory, just forced through a punitive anti-business tax. Progressive Democrats from Andrew Cuomo to Dianne Feinstein are being challenged from their left by candidates in the socialist Bernie Sanders mode. Sanders himself, absent some chicanery from the DNC, would very likely have been the party’s nominee for president in 2016.

Joy(less) Reid: “Those Homophobic Posts on My Blog Are Totally Fake”

Whatever you say, dear

In an exclusive statement to Mediaite, the MSNBC host claims these posts from The Reid Report — which include defending homophobia, gay jokes, and the outright mocking of gay people and homosexuality — were somehow put in by an “external party” that “manipulated material from my now-defunct blog.”

While Reid apologized in December for writing homophobic content on a blog she ran long before her days as an icon of the #Resistance movement, she claims these new posts opposing gay marriage and cringing “at the sight of two men kissing” were part of a “fabricated” outside effort to paint her as “offensive and hateful.”

FWIW, I don’t think the comments on the blog, which amounted to, “a lot of straight people think gay sex is gross” is homophobic or even offensive. Which makes me think if her old blog was hacked, as she claimed…. well, 4Chan could have put a lot more interesting stuff than *that* on it, that’s all I’m saying.

Question: Do cops regularly lie in order to make arrests?
Progressive Answer: “Of course they do, all the time. And they get away with it because the system is so corrupt.”

Question: Do prosecutors lie in order to get convictions?
Progressive Answer: “Oh, hell yes. And they get away with it because the system is so corrupt.”

Question: “Would the FBI lie in order to get a FISA warrant to spy on political opponents?”
Progressive Answer: “How dare you make such a treasonous suggestion! You’re a pawn of Vladimir Putin! Our law enforcement agencies deserve absolute loyalty!”

It cuts the other way, too. Lots of “conservatives” who have recently been critical of the FBI normally defer to law enforcement implicitly. The only “pure” people on this are the “True-Cons” like Bill Kristol and Ewen McMuffin who preach unquestioning loyalty to all elements of Government.

Chels Manning is thinking of running for the senate from the nutty blue state of Maryland. Let’s quickly review Chel’s qualifications, why not?

So, yeah, pretty much where the Democrat Party is right now.

Believe Liz Warren!

Liz Warren claims that she, like all women, was a victim of patriarchal sexual abuse. She claims that the man who was her faculty mentor as a young Native American law professor borderline raped her. And some pale people with penises have the temerity to question her story.

The faculty member Warren is referring to is law professor Eugene Smith, who was her mentor and close friend at the University of Houston. The reason we know this is because at Smith’s memorial service in 1997 Warren recounted and spoke about the incident. But the account then was dramatically different. In fact, the very opposite.

According to Warren, Smith was her buddy and they were joking around in the office, in which she was laughing uproariously. Numerous witnesses say that, even when speaking at the memorial service, Warren laughed about the alleged incident. Which begs the question: Who cracks jokes about being sexually assaulted? Unless, of course, it never happened.

More importantly, Warren conveniently—and deliberately—left out a seminal fact: Smith suffered from polio. That’s right. He was unable to walk or move around without a wheelchair or crutches. According to his former colleagues, Smith’s polio was so severe they felt pity for him.

Moreover, in 1997, Warren was then a law professor at Harvard. If she had really been assaulted by Smith, then why did she travel all the way to Houston, deliver a glowing eulogy and praise Smith for his “character” and “moral integrity”?

I believe we should take her word for it. After all, it’s not like Liz Warren ever lied about being a member of a politically favored victim group in order to gain a professional advantage before.

Democrat Senator and self-described “bearded socialist” Chris Coons pretends that he once had respect for the Republican Party.

I may disagree with Mr. Flake on policy, but I consider him an honorable man, a loyal friend and a valued colleague. His retirement is deeply troubling to me because he represents a principled and patriotic Republican Party, one that has long championed strong American leadership around the world, and one I now fear is falling apart.

I call BS.

Mr Coons and his colleagues have never regarded the Republican Party as “principled and patriotic.” No, they declared that Republicans have a “War on Women,” that Republicans hate gays and immigrants, that Republicans want to destroy the environment, want to put black people into chains. All assertions Mr Coons has never objected to when they were being levied by Democrats.

His article goes on to sanctimoniously preen about the “corrosion” of the political culture; a corrosion that he never found objectionable before, but now that the Democrats are looking to drive a wedge between PDT and Republicans, he suddenly pretends to care about civility.

If Jeb Bush or John Kasich were president, the attacks against them would be no less vicious than the attacks are against PDT.  The only difference is Trump fights back. After two Bush punching bag presidencies where the Oval Office was occupied by men who thought defending the right against attacks from the left was ungentlemanly and beneath them, the left is confounded to have a president who stands up for himself.  One may disagree with the way he defends himself, but it is indeed a change from how Republicans normally  operate.

To engage in ruthless attacks while sanctimoniously demanding civility from the other side is not a change from how Democrats normally operate.

If It Weren’t for Double Standards

Amazing, isn’t it, how willingly the Democrat Media Complex accepts a denial from a Democrat as sufficient evidence to dismiss a scandal.

Yes, the foundation received money and Bill Clinton was paid to give a speech, but there’s no evidence the Clintons were paid by Russians to push through the uranium deal.

What were they expecting, a signed receipt? The Clintons received money explicitly for the purpose of greasing the skids for the Uranium One Deal, Andrew McCarthy has laid out the irrefutable case for this.

Note that, despite zero evidence, these are the same people proclaiming that Donald Trump colluded with the Russians to steal the election.

Collusion

Tennessee Republican Marsha Blackburn announced her run for the Senate yesterday, but the announcement was blocked on Twitter because they objected to the part where she called out Planned Parenthood for trafficking in dismembered baby parts (which leftists contend is a myth even though multiple Planned Parenthood executives and employees were caught on video discussing how they traffic in dismembered baby parts).

You know who works at Twitter? A former spokesman for far-left Democrat Senator Kamala Harris, who previously used her position of power as California Attorney General to persecute the investigative team that exposed Planned Parenthood’s practice of illegal trafficking in dismembered baby parts.

Planned Parenthood gets over $500M in taxpayer subsidies every year, and last year spent $38 Million on political activities intended to help elect Democrats.

Interesting, yes?

She Gets to Call Janet Jackson “Miss Jackson”

Would anyone like to attempt to defend the mayor of San Juan, PR against accusations that she is a leftist political hack who is deliberately politicizing the hurricane response in support of a Democrat anti-Trump narrative?

Even Evan McMullin’s #NeverTrump “Reagan Battalion” has turned on her.

Not My President

Hillary Rodham Clinton Abedin (a.k.a. Felonia Von Pantsuit) responded to the mass murder in Las Vegas by using the corpses for a political prop.

Our grief isn’t enough. We can and must put politics aside, stand up to the NRA, and work together to try to stop this from happening again.

What a horrible and stupid woman.

Funny how “Putting politics aside” means “Advancing the Democrat Left Agenda.”

In another Tweet, she politicizes the event to oppose a bill currently in Congress that would make it easier for gun owners to legally acquire noise suppressors.

The crowd fled at the sound of gunshots.

Imagine the deaths if the shooter had a silencer, which the NRA wants to make easier to get.

The stupid bint thinks suppressors work the way silencers work in the movies; reducing the sound of a gun to a whispery “Snik Snik.” Not hardly. Even with a suppressor, a rifle still fires at 120-130 decibels — comparable to a jackhammer. You know why the people in The Walking Dead never hear the zombies coming? It’s because they’re deaf from firing guns without suppressors

And vacuous bint Lena Dunham says the mass murder was “about race and gender,” because that’s what all the stupid people tell each other in their stupid people echo chambers 24/7 — that everything is always about race, gender, and privilege.

Sally Kohn, however, remains the undeniable Queen of Stupid.

Pro-Tip: If you’re a hack left-wing politician trying to help the media create a ‘Katrina’ narrative to attack a Republican president… you probably shouldn’t be complaining about not getting any help in front of massive pallet loads of relief supplies.

Funny how amidst all the devastation and shortages, the Democrat Mayor of Puerto Rico was able to find a custom-printed T-shirt that supports the Democrat ‘Katrina’ Narrative. Maybe that’s what she was doing instead of meeting with FEMA and other relief agencies.

Manipulation

Posted by V the K at 10:18 am - September 29, 2017.
Filed under: Dishonest Democrats

When I was in college, the LGBT campus activist crowd (they were thinner, then, with fewer piercings and ungodly dye jobs, but the strident left-wing politics were the same) declared that one day in the month was “Blue Jeans Day,” and that everyone who wore blue jeans on campus that day was showing their support for LGBT Equality. At the time, I thought it was horsecrap, and I said so. It was a stupid stunt to manipulate the appearance of people supporting a cause, and it was dishonest. The LGBT activists hated me back then, too.

It seems like the Antifa NFL players are trying to play the same stunt. We all know that this whole #TakeAKnee business started when a mediocre quarterback with Bozo the Clown hair was egged on by his SJW girlfriend to express contempt for the United States by sitting on the bench during the National Anthem. That was last year. This year, they decided to start out the season by protesting against the USA on behalf of the social justice left; kneeling was originally intended as a protest and show of support for the #Resistance; i.e. the Left-Wing Democrat opponents of the president.

But when the fans didn’t like having football co-opted as another propaganda arm for the far left, the players and owners tried to pretend it was about something else. “Contra our previous statements, we are not protesting against the USA or the system of white supremacy we previously said it represents. This is actually about ‘Unity.’ If you’re against us, you’re against ‘Unity.'” The NFL owners bought a commercial about how awesome unity was. And then, last night, the Green Bay Packers — whose protest the previous weekend didn’t go over well — came out locking arms in a display of what they said was ‘Unity’ They told the crowd to lock arms and join them. But the fans didn’t fall for the bait and switch. Because they know that if you’re really about unity, you don’t make the objects of your protest the symbols of things that are supposed to unify us, like the flag and the National Anthem. Fans know that the protest began as, and remain as, a show of support for the malcontents of the far left.

We know that, like the LGBT of our college years, you’re trying to trick people into showing support for something they don’t really support.

Some of the teams are starting to backtrack, while still mouthing the company line that their protest was about ‘Unity.’ The NFL has a choice: It can tell players to protest on their own time, but leave politics out of the game. Or they can ‘stay woke’ until they go broke.

How exactly did Charlottesville go so wrong?

A number of articles in the last two weeks raise important questions about the role of the police/government, in generating the Charlottesville tragedy. In presenting some of them below, I’m keeping my tone as neutral as I can.

Aug. 25 from the New York Times, “As White Nationalist in Charlottesville Fired, Police ‘Never Moved’”.

As demonstrators clashed near a downtown park here two weeks ago, a white nationalist protester in a bulletproof vest turned, pointed a pistol toward the crowd and fired a single shot at the ground, in the direction of a black man wielding an improvised torch.

To make his escape, a video recording shows, the armed protester strolled past a line of about a dozen state police troopers who were safely positioned about 10 feet away behind two metal barricades. None of them budged.

“We all heard it and ran — I know damn well they heard it,” said Rosia Parker, a community activist in Charlottesville. “They never moved.”

And so on. They got the shooter later, yay! But why only later? What were the police doing, on-scene? Nothing.

Note: That does not necessarily mean the police were wrong; it could be, rather, that a higher authority gave them bad orders. You will see this become a theme. As NYT puts it, “So stark was the police failure to intervene, many participants in the protest and counterprotests believe it was by design.”

Next, the finger-pointing between local police, Virginia state police, and various politicians (including Gov. Terry McAuliffe – D). From the above NYT article:

The city did not use a number of security measures recommended by the state police, said Brian Moran, Virginia’s secretary of public safety and homeland security, including a ban on weapons and sticks of all kinds. The state also proposed designating parking areas, busing protesters and cutting off traffic for at least 10 blocks. None of that happened, he said…

The organizers of the rally said the [local] police had unilaterally changed details that they spent weeks negotiating, such as how they would safely enter and exit the park. “They didn’t follow through on any part of their plan,” said one of the coordinators…“They threw the whole thing away without telling us.” The changes involved every aspect of logistics, he said, including where counterprotesters would be, which streets would be blocked and how V.I.P.s would enter.

When lefties are in denial

In response to President Trump’s comments yesterday, Sen. Kaine (D – Hillary) said this:

Charlottesville violence was fueled by one side: white supremacists spreading racism, intolerance & intimidation. Those are the facts.

No, Senator. Your son, Linwood, was arrested and in jail for spreading violence, intolerance and intimidation on behalf of the Left. Then charged with multiple misdemeanors. Those are the facts.

By the way – search “creepy tim kaine” sometime, and view the Images tab. It’s a creepy hoot.

UPDATE – When Marco Rubio condones violence:

The organizers of events which inspired & led to #charlottesvilleterroristattack are 100% to blame for a number of reasons… When entire movement built on anger & hatred towards people different than you, it justifies & ultimately leads to violence against them.

Rubio loves to go on about his love of America and how our founding principles are important to him; but, evidently, the concept of Free Speech escapes him.

Rubio just said that, if you don’t like somebody’s speech or beliefs or marching permit, you’re “justified” (his concept) in attacking them violently. U.S. criminal law would beg to differ with Senator Rubio.

UPDATE – When McCain joins him:

There’s no moral equivalency between racists & Americans standing up to defy hate& bigotry. The President of the United States should say so

Let’s be clear:

  • There is definite moral equivalence between U.S. neo-Nazis and Antifa.
  • There is definite moral equivalence between the various #WhiteLivesMatter types and #BlackLivesMatter.
  • Antifa has been committing crimes of violence against human beings (not just property) for months or years, and #BlackLivesMatter has spread bigotry and incited riots and cop-killings.

If McCain is in denial about that, he does not belong in the Senate.

Karma comes for Fauxcahontas

Elizabeth Warren’s opponent, Shiva Ayyadurai, says with a smile “Only a real Indian can defeat the fake Indian”. He sent Warren a “23andMe” DNA home-testing kit. Which she refused.

He also published the result of his test. Though obviously Asian Indian, he happens to test as 0.1% Native American.

I don’t know what this guy’s chances are in the leftie state of Massachusetts, but he’s pleasant and knows how to use laughter to reach people.

In fairness to Warren: she claims to be 1/32 Native American on family history, so she might easily test as 3% or more of Native American, beating Ayyadurai. But that’s beside the point. The point is: SHE made it all relevant. The blue-eyed, chalky-white, blonde Warren checked “Native American” on her Harvard University job application – and has given only faux-apologizes, at best, for her absurd claim.

And she’s fake in other ways – like being a multi-millionaire who works for Wall Street’s interests while having claimed to be the creator of Occupy Wall Street, on the barricades with the working class – but enough for today.

de Blasio’s Secret Pizza Party

I’m late getting to this, but there’s been a lot of other news. Bill de Blasio faces questions over his apparent pay-for-play. From The New York Times’ July 24 article, a sample:

Less than six months after Bill de Blasio became mayor of New York City, a campaign donor buttonholed him at an event in Manhattan. The donor, Harendra Singh, one of the earliest contributors to his mayoral campaign, ran a restaurant on city property and was having problems with the lease. Could the mayor help him?

That encounter, on June 3, 2014, set the wheels of government turning in an extraordinary way on behalf of Mr. Singh. City officials at the highest levels became involved, ultimately drawing the interest of federal investigators focused on what they saw as a pattern of trading favors for campaign contributions…

Allegedly, de Blasio’s behavior extended to retaliatory firing of whisteblowers. Both the Manhattan and U.S. attorneys investigated in 2016, and it’s unclear why de Blasio wasn’t charged. (Preet Bharara, anyone?)

The fun bit was when de Blasio read a book to a bunch of kids, Secret Pizza Party. By example, the story encourages kids to steal things, keep it secret, and have secret parties that they don’t tell grownups about. Right up his alley.

I digress now, but it’s even creepier that the book tells kids, “When you make something secret, you make it special,” a line straight out of Pedophile 101. I mean, don’t get me started on Jacob Schwartz, who was a top de Blasio staffer.

Awan family breached Congressional security and blackmailed Democrats?

I’ve been eyeing this story for months, but haven’t blogged it because I (still) don’t understand what it is. It’s something about a couple guys from Pakistan, who were Congressional I/T administrators, up to some shenanigans, of which Congress has been weirdly protective; especially Debbie Wasserman-Schulz.

Here’s a July 23 article from The Daily Caller:

FBI agents seized smashed computer hard drives from the home of Florida Democratic Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz’s information technology (IT) administrator, according to two sources with knowledge of the investigation.

Pakistani-born Imran Awan, long-time right-hand IT aide to the former Democratic National Committee (DNC) Chairwoman, has since desperately tried to get the hard drives back…

An additional source in Congress with direct knowledge of the case, speaking on condition of anonymity because of the sensitivity of the probe, confirmed that the FBI has joined what Politico previously described as a Capitol Police criminal probe into “serious, potentially illegal, violations on the House IT network” by Imran and three of his relatives, who had access to the emails and files of the more than two dozen House Democrats who employed them…

To be clear: These investigations are real and ongoing. But we’re not being told what about. It’s all, something something hard drives relatives laptops Wasserman-Schulz something. With hints that maybe blackmail or national security breaches are involved?

Here’s video from May of Wasserman-Schulz glowering at a Capitol Police officer who won’t return a laptop (a piece of evidence) that she wants back.

If you have a good notion what this story is about, please let us know in the comments.


UPDATE: Via Zero Hedge, Imran Awan tries to flee the U.S.; is arrested and charged with multiple counts of bank fraud. Amongst other background, ZH supplies a list of 30 Democrats who had him on their taxpayer-funded payrolls. Yikes!

And in the comments, Heliotrope (thanks!) points us to a Daily Caller starter piece from February.

Three brothers who managed office information technology for members of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence and other lawmakers were abruptly relieved of their duties on suspicion that they accessed congressional computers without permission.

Brothers Abid, Imran, and Jamal Awan were barred from computer networks at the House of Representatives Thursday…

Three members of the intelligence panel and five members of the House Committee on Foreign Affairs were among the dozens of members who employed the suspects on a shared basis…

Also among those whose computer systems may have been compromised is Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz…

OK, between the 3 articles, here is what we got:

  • Members of the House Intelligence and Foreign Affairs committees, chiefly (or entirely?) Democrats, have employed Awan family members for I/T.
  • For years. Paying them millions, over the years.
  • In Feb. 2017, they were abruptly dismissed. But House members continued to pay them.
  • And ever since, Debbie Wasserman-Schulz has been frantic to “recover” (or hide) evidence.
  • Her effort has apparently failed, with the FBI getting key info on 7/23 and arresting Imran Awan on 7/24.

Hmm. Looks like MAJOR security breaches and blackmail, focused on House Democrats. Will this scandal get the media coverage it deserves? How about a Special Counsel?

Also, as ZH puts it, “One bombshell that has been all but ignored by the main stream media is that Imran Awan had access to Debbie Wasserman Schultz’s iPad password, meaning that the brothers also had direct access to the notorious DNC emails.” So…could these guys even have an angle on the DNC email leaks?? Trumprussia?

UPDATE: Apparently Awan had access to Nancy Pelosi’s laptop and emails, among many others.

Democrats colluded with Russia to hack 2016 election

We’ve been thinking this for months, but here’s another post because this article explains it so well:

While the mainstream news media hunts for evidence of Trump-Russia collusion, the public record shows that Democrats have willfully used Moscow disinformation to influence the presidential election against Donald Trump and attack his administration.

The disinformation came in the form of a Russian-fed dossier written by former British intelligence agent Christopher Steele. It contains a series of unverified criminal charges against Mr. Trump’s campaign aides…

Some Democrats have widely circulated the discredited information. Mr. Steele was paid by the Democrat-funded opposition research firm Fusion GPS with money from a Hillary Clinton backer. Fusion GPS distributed the dossier among Democrats and journalists. The information fell into the hands of the FBI, which used it in part to investigate Mr. Trump’s campaign aides.

Mr. Steele makes clear that his unproven charges came almost exclusively from sources linked to the Kremlin and Russian President Vladimir Putin…

“If anyone colluded with the Russians, it was the Democrats,” said a former Trump campaign adviser who asked not to be identified because of the pending investigations. “After all, they’ve routinely shopped around false claims from the debunked Steele dossier, which listed sources including senior Kremlin officials. If anyone should be investigated in Washington, it ought to be Adam Schiff, Eric Swalwell, Mark Warner and their staffers.”

RTWT. It has more detail on why the dossier was fake and how Hillary’s campaign used it anyway.

My major criticism of the article would be that John McCain’s name doesn’t appear; I’ve noted recently how he had such early access to the dossier as to suggest that he may have helped spread it.

The founder of Fusion GPS is going to “plead the fifth” about his company’s role in all this.

[Senate Judiciary] Committee chairman Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, and ranking member Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., confirmed in a statement that they subpoenaed Simpson to appear before the committee Wednesday as part of a hearing about the influence of foreign lobbying in last year’s presidential election.

“Simpson’s attorney has asserted that his client will invoke his Fifth Amendment rights in response to the subpoena,” Grassley and Feinstein said.

Remember that Fusion GPS also had ties to Natalia Veselnitskaya lobbying in favor of Putin (that is, lobbying against the anti-Putin Magnitsky Act). Fusion GPS had a representative at Veselnitskaya’s nothing-meeting with Donald Trump Jr., that lefties were so excited about last week.

UPDATE: They reached an agreement with the Fusion GPS guy to get an interview (I think that’s not under oath?). But Democrats stalled the committee interviewing another Fusion GPS-related witness. Dems must be really nervous.

The Truth Finally Laces Its Sneakers

Even left-leaning Snopes can’t go along with the lies leftists are spreading about PDT:

  • “Donald Trump’s budget eliminates Meals on Wheels.” – That was a lie.
  • “At the G-7 summit, Donald Trump flipped his middle finger at the Italian Head of State.” – This was a lie.
  • “The Pope was smiling when he met Obama, dour when he met Trump.” – This was a lie.
  • “The White House photoshopped pictures to make Trump’s hands look bigger.” – This was a lie.
  • “Trump says Americans have no right to protest him.” – This was a lie.
  • “Trump eliminates LGBT from the 2020 census.” – This is a lie.
  • “Donald Trump misattributed an Irish Proverb.” – That was a lie.

The entire episode is a remarkable example of something bordering on collective hallucination, most likely brought on by confirmation bias. Here hundreds of thousands of people — including professional journalists working for influential news organizations, and a chat show host with more than three million nightly viewers — literally heard Trump say something he never said, in most cases probably because it confirmed a pre-existing image of the President as a poorly read, culturally ignorant buffoon.

And those are just a few examples of the lies leftists are spreading. To do an exhaustive list, per the Snopes article, would be too time-consuming and take up too much space.

Of a piece with this, CNN — the network that gets so angry when PDT calls them fake news — last week published a “A second-by-second analysis of the Trump-Macron handshake” as part of their bottomless quest to use anything and everything, no matter how trivial, to attack the president.

Times Change

Kinda funny, ain’t it? Back when Russia was the USSR, had full-on Communism and 30,000 nuclear warheads pointed at the USA, Democrats loved the Russians. Then, they lose an election and all of the sudden the Democrat Party has turned into 1950’s John Birchers seeming the Red menace in every shadow.
