Russian-Nazi racist helped Black colleges

Scott Adams has been pushing a certain list of Trump accomplishments as President. Adams says:

1. Identify your most lefty, Trump-hating friend or family member.

2. Share this link of President Trump’s accomplishments while you are in the same room so you can watch them read it.

3. Watch as your lefty friend turns “cognitively blind” to the list of accomplishments as if it is not really there. Your subject will KNOW President has accomplished nothing…

…The list will simply be “invisible,” but not in the literal sense, only the mental sense. If you check back in two days, your anti-Trumper will claim once again no such list exists. Watch their eyes when they say it. It will be freaky.

To be fair, some items on the list are a bit exaggerated. But others, I had no idea about. Most of the media never told me. For example, this one about black colleges caught my eye:

President Donald Trump signed an executive order Tuesday aimed at signaling his commitment to historically black colleges and universities…

“This is a great day for my membership and a great day for America,” said Lezli Baskerville, head of the National Association For Equal Opportunity in Education, an umbrella group for public, private and land-grant HBCUs…

Trump’s order moves the Initiative on Historically Black Colleges and Universities from the Department of Education into the executive office of the White House. It directs the initiative to work with the private sector to strengthen the fiscal stability of HBCUS, make infrastructure improvements, provide job opportunities for students, work with secondary schools to create a college pipeline and increase access and opportunity for federal grants and contracts.

Separately and also interesting, there’s the freeing of Aya Hijazi:

President Donald Trump hailed the return of Aya Hijazi, an Egyptian-American aid worker, in the Oval Office on Friday, telling the American charity worker she showed “great strength” in her ordeal.

“We are very happy to have Aya back home,” Trump said, seated alongside Hijazi, who returned from Egypt late Thursday. “It’s a great honor to have her in the Oval Office with her brother.”

…Trump was briefed on Hijazi’s case early in his term and directed his national security team to take steps to secure her release…

Obviously, this post’s title is sarcastic.

Alt Left does violence & destruction; media silent

If you’re with the Alt Left Media, you’re outraged – outraged! – that anyone would compare the Alt Left to neo-Nazis. Because “One side is racist, bigoted, Nazi. The other opposes racism and bigotry. Morally different universes.” (Mitt Romney, lying for them)

In the real world, it’s different. Recent example: Alt Left injures reporter, then blames the reporter.

Antifa protesters assaulted a reporter filming in Richmond, Va., on Sunday night, and later defiantly blamed him for the attack on their Facebook page.

The unnamed reporter at WTVR CBS 6 was filming the marchers, who were protesting a monument to Confederate general J.E.B. Stuart, when he was hit with a blunt object, WTVR reports. The protesters believed they could stop him from filming by “denying consent” even though they were in public, and video shows them blocking his iPhone camera before striking him in the back of the head…

An ambulance took the reporter to a hospital where he received four staples in his head…

According to the Antifa Seven Hills, the marchers were the real victims of the reporter who was “perpetuating rape culture” by ignoring their “denial of consent.”…

Antifa also argued that his presence as a white man was suspect…

“Due to the intensity and context of this time people are very scared of white men running full speed at them with iPhones as this is the exact behavior of a white supremacist [ed: or a responsible law enforcement officer]…,” Antifa Seven Hills wrote…

Antifa argued that the media does not have a right to report on them in ways they do not consent to.

Hey, Antifa: If you’re doing a public protest, by that action alone, you consent to be filmed. Too late to “deny consent”.

The media told us that, if Trump were President, reporters would be in danger! There it is…from the Left.

A quick search did not show this story covered on CNN, NYT, WaPo or any big-time outlet.

RELATED:

  • Missouri State Senator, Maria Chappelle-Nadal, calls for Trump’s assassination. To their credit, leading Missouri Democrats have called for her resignation. But she refuses.
  • A bust of President Lincoln is burned in Chicago. Locals say that locals did it, back on July 4. To his shame, a Chicago Democrat alderman now blames Trump via a fanciful tale of outside white extremists doing it.
  • Alt Left website, Vice, calls for the destruction of Mt. Rushmore.
  • Numerous Confederate monuments are attacked or destroyed.

    Remember, these monuments were put up to heal the vast wounds of the Civil War, making a statement that both sides were American and had fought well, with history worth remembering. To pull them down is to take a stand against national healing – and against America. Pat Buchanan is scathing about it:

    Two years ago, Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe called the giant statues of Lee and “Stonewall” Jackson on Richmond’s Monument Avenue “parts of our heritage.” After Charlottesville, New York-born-and-bred McAuliffe, entertaining higher ambitions, went full scalawag, demanding the statues be pulled down as “flashpoints for hatred, division and violence.”

    Who hates the statues, Terry? Who’s going to cause the violence? Answer: The Democratic left whom Terry must now appease.

Barcelona car attacks

As you know, terrorists killed at least 14 people in Barcelona on Thursday with cars, and injured at least 100 more in multiple attacks.

A group called “Islamic State” claimed responsibility, making them explicitly political and Islamic attacks.

By any objective measure, this is a much worse tragedy and problem than what happened in Charlottesville last weekend, although our thoughts and prayers are with all victims of both.

The LA Times article above phrases it oddly. LAT’s title says the attack is “blamed on ‘jihadi terrorism'”. The internal scare-quotes are theirs. The body says:

Spain’s Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy said Barcelona was the victim of “jihadi terrorism”…

In other words, LA Times won’t call it jihadi terrorism; it will only report neutrally the fact that, oddly, for some strange reason that one might not be able to fathom, others choose to leap to that conclusion.

This fits in with the [Left] Media Complex Playbook that V mentioned a couple days ago.

  • If the car is driven by a mentally-ill white supremacist and kills 1 person, it’s proof that Republicans are Nazis, America is in the grip of an epidemic of racism, Trump is the KKKing of racists, and lefties are correct to physically bash their opponents.
  • But if the cars (multiple) are driven by consciously-religious Muslims and kill 14 people, it’s not proof of anything except that Muslims are victims of hate crimes by Republicans – and lefties are correct to physically bash their opponents.

Malice or Stupidity?

CNN is apparently trying to create the impression that Charlottesville was the first time in history that anyone ever rammed a motor vehicle into a crowd of people in order to commit mass murder.

Triggering the media

I keep hearing that the media is heavily filtering President Trump’s comments yesterday. So let’s get a bit closer to the real thing.

Trump says why his statements on Charlottesville were the right statements, in the right way at the right time. A triggered melee of voices strives to interrupt him.

YouTube Preview Image

[before the extract above] “I didn’t wait long. I wanted to make sure, unlike most politicians, that what I said was correct…It takes awhile to get the facts. You still don’t know [all] the facts.”

“I think the driver of the car is a disgrace to himself, his family and his country. You can call it terrorism, you can call it murder… The driver of the car is a murderer, and what he did is a horrible, horrible, inexcusable thing.”

“Senator McCain? You mean, the one who voted against Obamacare [replacement]? The one who voted against us getting good health care?”

“What about the Alt Left, that came charging at the Alt Right? …They came charging with clubs in their hands, swinging. Do they have any problem? I think they do… That was a horrible day…You had a group on one side that was bad, and you had a group on the other side that was also very violent. And nobody wants to say that, but I’ll say it right now. You had a group on the other side that came charging in, without a permit, and they were very violent.”

“This week, it’s [protesting a traditional statue of] Robert E. Lee. I notice that Stonewall Jackson’s coming down. I wonder, is it George Washington next week? And is it Thomas Jefferson the week after? You really do have to ask yourself, where does it stop?”

“You had a group on one side and you had a group on the other and they came at each other with clubs and it was vicious and it was a horrible thing to watch…I think there’s blame on both sides, and I have no doubt about it, and you don’t have any doubt about it either, and if you reported it accurately, you would say it.”

“George Washington was a slave owner. So, will George Washington now lose his status? Are we going to take down statues of him? How about Thomas Jefferson? …You’re changing history, you’re changing culture, and you had people – I’m not talking about the neo-Nazis and the white nationalists, because they should be condemned totally – but you had many people [who just wanted to keep the traditional statue], and the press has treated them absolutely unfairly. Now, in the other group also [who wanted the statue to come down], you had some fine people, but you also had troublemakers…with the baseball bats.”

“There are two sides to a story. I thought that what took place was a horrible moment for our country.”


The one thing that I would regret in the above, is that President Trump should (and didn’t yet) call for a universal, national pledge against political violence, that Left and Right alike would be required to take – if they want to be regarded as moral or responsible.

The media (like CNN) and the Democrats must be made to disavow the violence and bigotry of Antifa and #BlackLivesMatter.

Having the Right disavow the violence and bigotry of the #WhiteLivesMatter types is easy, a small price to pay, something that I’m happy to do. Because anyone who believes in tradition or God or liberty for real will know instinctively that #AllLivesMatter. (Plus the fact that the #WhiteLivesMatter types are crypto-leftists anyway.)

More Google updates

Just to round out today’s earlier post, we also have new interviews in Breitbart’s Rebels of Google series.

UPDATE – Everyone we don’t like is Raaaaaaaaaysist: CNN falsely smears the planned March on Google as a “White Nationalist”, “Alt Right” event.

To begin with, the organizers of March on Google are known to be pro-peace, anti-racist and anti-Alt Right. But they also say it pointedly, at this link.

Code of Conduct for March on Google

The March on Google condemns and disavows violence, hatred, and bigotry and all groups that espouse it such as White Nationalists, KKK, Antifa, and NeoNazis.
We will not use messages that are designed to incite anger, hate, or violence.
We will respect the law and the police and cooperate in all matters.
Any violation of these tenets will not be tolerated.
Is this an “Alt-Right” event? The answer is no. This is an event for First Amendment supporters from across the country, from all backgrounds, ethnicity, and walks of life.

CNN could have checked it easily. Instead, CNN published a complete falsehood – once again attempting to smear anyone who challenges them, or Google or the hard Left, as racists.

Hey, lefties: This is why Trump won (be that good or bad). This is why rational, honest people reject and despise the Left.

UPDATE: Peaceful March on Google is postponed, due to Alt Left terrorist threats following the CNN slanders.

CNN’s promotion of left-wing violence

Reminder:

CNN has been fairly silent about Antifa – until yesterday, when CNN did a whitewash piece on Antifa that failed to label it a terrorist, criminal or Trotskyite organization.

According to an early report from Daily Caller, this extract would be as close as CNN came to admitting anything might be bad about Antifa:

The group is known for causing damage to property during protests. In Berkeley, black-clad protesters wearing masks threw Molotov cocktails and smashed windows at the student union center where the [Milo] Yiannopoulos event was to be held.

Absent: Any mention of Eric Clanton or Antifa’s other injurious, criminal assaults on human beings.

Present: Extensive justification, for the supposed mere “property damage”, from Antifa representatives:

[Scott] Crow[, a longtime Antifa organizer,] said members use violence as a means of self-defense and they believe property destruction does not equate to violence. “There is a place for violence. Is that the world that we want to live in? No. Is it the world we want to inhabit? No. Is it the world we want to create? No. But will we push back? Yes,” Crow said.

Then more of the same, from another Antifa organizer.

CNN may have edited the piece after Daily Caller saw it. Looking at it now, I do see one additional mention that Antifa might be kinda violent – from a certain krazy, racist, Alt Right point of view. That mention is followed by another “But…”, with justifying comments from an Antifa organizer, to whom CNN grants the last word.

Still absent: any hint of Antifa being on New Jersey’s official terror watch list. From CNN, you’d never know. Sad to say, this all fits in a larger pattern.

No word yet on whether CNN will do anything about either Wilson or Boykin. I doubt they will.

I call on CNN to explicitly disavow Antifa, #BlackLivesMatter, and all left-wing bigotry and violence. I call on President Trump to make a similar call upon CNN and Democrats everywhere, on behalf of all Americans.

Eric Clanton update: His preliminary hearing was supposed to be last week, but is now in September. “Clanton was charged in May with four counts of assault with a deadly weapon, a felony, with the special allegation of causing great bodily injury to Sean Stiles. He was also charged with wearing a mask to evade identification, a misdemeanor.”

Another politicized, left-wing shooter

Coverage of this story is mostly on local news websites. And even that coverage tries to downplay the politics; while AP’s account is antiseptically vague.

In West Goshen, PA, a person called Clayton P. Carter III shot his neighbor last night – on the neighbor’s own property (the two each stood near the shared property line).

Most of the coverage will say that the two had an unspecified “long-running dispute” or that Carter had disputes going with several neighbors, was “quarrelsome”, “argumentative”, and tended to pull a gun during his altercations. And little more.

But some coverage admits that the victim, George Brooks Jennings, is a local Republican committeeman. And will just barely admit that Carter’s “front yard was crowded with…hand lettered anti-Trump signs.”

(UPDATE: The same article says “Carter shot Jennings once in the head, knocking him to the ground. Carter then allegedly stood over Jennings’ body and shot him once more in the head,” suggesting aggression.)

I’ll leave you to imagine how different the coverage would be, if the politics were reversed. Which it normally wouldn’t be, as the great majority of political violence in America comes from the Left. Hat tip, Cernovich Media.

While we’re at it – Steve Scalise update: At the end of July, Rep. Scalise was released from the hospital for “intensive inpatient rehabilitation”.

How hypocritical and low is the Left? This low

Bakers refuse a pro-Trump 9-year-old’s cake request.

When it becomes a thing, The Washington Post reveals the kid’s name, his hometown and his mother’s name. Also known as doxxing.

To be clear: I believe in freedom of association. I think the bakers should be able to refuse. Just like Christian bakers should be able to refuse the wedding cakes of gay couples.

But the Left takes the opposite view: that bakers shouldn’t be able to refuse any of the public. Fine, except for one very big thing.

Lefties care ONLY about making Christian bakers serve gays. When it comes to making ordinary bakers serve a kid who likes the President, the Left is nowhere to be found; or even doxxes the poor kid. Disgraceful!

How agenda-driven is CNN? This agenda-driven

At a White House press briefing yesterday, CNN’s Jim Acosta debated and over-talked that day’s spokesperson, Stephen Miller, so long and hard that Acosta was essentially making speeches. That isn’t the journalist’s role.

YouTube Preview Image

It’s clear that Acosta is a Democrat spokesperson. Not a journalist (under any honest definition of the word).

Miller rightly nailed Acosta on the matter of favoring immigrants who speak English. It’s already part of U.S. policy that, to be naturalized, you must show proficiency in English. President Trump’s proposal strengthens that by favoring (somewhat) immigrants who already know English. I’m not saying if that’s good or bad here; but it’s certainly inclusive of billions of people in China, India, Latin America and Africa who study English. Whereas Acosta tried to make it into a quasi-racist thing.

The more things change, the more they stay the same

Lefties have been swarming on Sarah Huckabee Sanders. The most famous comment, which you have probably heard, was a Daily Beast writer calling her “Butch queen first time in drags at ball” – but there have been many others. And no mainstream voices have yet objected.

It reminds me of 2016 when Azealia Banks gave a detailed call for Sarah Palin to be gang-raped – and left-leaning Twitter did nothing to Banks, despite her clear violation of Twitter’s policy against inciting violence on others.

All of this highlights how the Left is more-than-guilty of what it accuses others of. Lefties are hypersensitive to racism, homophobia, transphobia, sexism, etc. because too many of them are racist, homophobic, transphobic, sexist, etc. Not all (I know some who aren’t); but many. They know it in themselves. Knowing it in themselves, they assume that others (righties) must be even worse.

A new low: Media fat-shames Trump

Tucker has it:

YouTube Preview Image

I thought the Left was against fat-shaming? But, there’s more. Tucker goes into something even lower: the media’s (and Rep. Adam Schiff, D-CA’s) efforts to sensationalize the fact that President Trump and Vladimir Putin talked at dinner last week during the G-20 meetings. With Louise Mensch literally calling for the death penalty.

In other News of Teh Crazy:

  • Burn on Kurt Eichenwald. It’s a long story. Read it if you care. Basically, Newsweek settled a lawsuit that he had gotten them into with some Trumprussia-related smear of his.
  • CNN keeps bringin’ the hysteria with a new series on the Russian sleeper-spy-next-door. Notably absent: CNN’s interest in the Chinese sleeper-spy-next-door, or the Muslim sleeper-terrorist-next-door.
  • Remember the rumors of Obama considering martial law, if the election didn’t go as planned? (cough, Hillary win) It turns out there was something to it.

Some palate-clearing good news:

When Facts Don’t Fit ‘The Narrative’

Posted by V the K at 9:58 am - July 19, 2017.
Filed under: Media Bias

Black, Mohammedan, immigrant cop shoots a white woman in Minneapolis. Washington Post covers the story while never once mentioning the cop is black, Mohammedan, or immigrant. (Not to mention, not much outrage over this police shooting. I guess not all lives matter.)

They do, however, make a pitch for Australian-style gun confiscation.

Same deal at Vox. 2000 word story, no discussion of the cop’s race, religion, or background. But again, another pitch for outlawing the private ownership of firearms.

This is a result of cultural and policy decisions made by the US that have made firearms far more available in America than most of the world. For American police officers, this means they not only will encounter more guns, but they expect to encounter more guns, making them more likely to anticipate and perceive a threat and use deadly force as a result.

Cops shooting people justifies disarming law-abiding civilian gun-owners. Ah, leftist logic.

Fun with polls

You remember how in 2016, Establishment pollsters would over-sample Democrats to conclude that Hillary was “ahead” and “a lock to win”.

The charitable interpretation is cognitive dissonance: the Establishment simply couldn’t believe that Trump had real support, and accordingly, their pollsters adjusted-down his numbers. A cynic would go further, saying the Establishment pollsters were out to drag Hillary across the finish line by making her seem inevitable (depressing Republican voters).

Either way, Breitbart says they’re still at it.

…a Washington Post/ABC News poll show[s] Mr. Trump’s approval ratings languishing at 36 per cent…

The poll was performed by AbtAssociates…[whose] board members include former [staffers of] Bob Dole, Bill Clinton, Barack Obama, Planned Parenthood, World Bank, and Deloitte…

WaPo/ABC polling obviously predicted the U.S. election incorrectly…

Since this time last year they have over-represented Democrat voters in their studies. For this latest one, 35 per cent of their respondents were Democrats, 23 per cent were Republicans, 35 per cent were Independents (who in turn lean towards voting Democrat)…

[other] demographic questions they asked are not included in the data…[except it’s clear that] Young cell phone users made up the dominant part of the poll, and cell phone-only households made up nearly half the interviews.

So, the poll was skewed to younger, trendy Democrats. Yet this same poll still shows the Democrats’ weak appeal:

…just 37 per cent of respondents think the Democrat Party “stands for something” while 52 per cent say they simply stand against Trump. WaPo buried this in paragraph 12 of 19 while CNN didn’t mention it at all.

Breitbart’s article goes on to quote the late Christopher Hitchens at length, about how polling is a racket and the power elite’s tool to manipulate public debate (for example, stigmatizing certain leaders or viewpoints as “unpopular”).

P.S. – Related vaguely: I don’t follow Bret Easton Ellis much but apparently, he and his boyfriend (who are hardly conservatives) are sick of Fake News and equally, sick of liberals who make no sense because they never get outside their bubble.

My dinner partner on Saturday said she had never heard that Comey admitted the NY Times had gotten a series of stories wrong. She thought I had made that up. When I told her the world isn’t this — gesturing around the dark opulence of The Sunset Tower — and that the divide is real, she dismissed it with Trump’s approval ratings without acknowledging the media’s approval ratings are lower than Trump’s. She pointed out that MSNBC was killing it in the ratings and I told her that Maddow and Hannity are basically neck-and-neck any given night–and yet I was thinking, ‘I don’t watch either one!’ So why am I even engaging in this?”

Is CNN’s Don Lemon an agent of Vladimir Putin??

Scott Adams pointed this out.

  • Don Lemon is said to like vodka (Russian) martinis with a lemon twist. He could have chosen a different TV name but he went with Lemon to dog-whistle the link.
  • Don Lemon has never released his tax returns! How do we know he’s not getting Russian payments? There’s no evidence that he has, but what are we supposed to think? How do we know he hasn’t? What is he hiding?
  • Lemon has interviewed Russian nationals – as part of his job, even! There was value exchanged – it’s beyond question that Lemon met with Russians, intending for them to help him in his job. So what if nothing came of it? It’s all about his intent.
  • Lemon has never filled out any forms which would disclose his Russian contacts and collusion! Why not? Has he lied, in claiming to be a loyal American? Looks that way. Can we believe anything he says?

With that much smoke, there’s gotta be a fire. We must investigate Don Lemon immediately, and exhaustively.

Because we could easily find something out that we don’t know, now. He could be committing treasonous crimes that we’ve just seen no indication of, yet. After all, Lemon has failed to call for a war with Russia. Isn’t he obviously serving Putin’s interests?

/trumpRussiaParody

Is all this about George Soros and David Brock?

I mentioned looking forward to Sharyl Atkisson’s new book, The Smear: How Shady Political Operatives and Fake News Control What You See, What You Think, and How You Vote.

It came. I’m not far into it, but it seems pretty good. I already knew some of what she has to say, but the organized wealth of details makes the cake.

Chapter 2 is on David Brock and his Soros-funded empire. As you probably know, Soros-Brock have Media Matters and a vast array of other organizations, meant to seem independent (but not), with armies of paid trolls that astro-turf Twitter, the blogosphere, the media pages and employees, etc. in order to plant their favored narratives and terms, crush their enemies (and disfavored narratives/terms), and generally get the Controlled Media to do Hillary’s bidding – oops sorry, their bidding.

I have no doubt that the Soros-Brock armies are a big part of the Trumprussia hysteria. Meanwhile, Atkisson suggests that a lot of terminology is spread by them. She suggests that the Soros-Brock armies established climate change (when Global Warming didn’t work on people anymore), progressive (for liberal), and the over-use of racist, white nationalist, alt-Right, microaggression, body shaming, white privilege, etc.

Many know that David Brock was a rightie in the 1980s-1990s and was the chief agent of smearing Anita Hill. (Who deserved a little of it, at least, in that she had helped smear Clarence Thomas.) In the late 90s, Brock transitioned to extreme Clintonite, and hooked up with Soros for funding.

It’s funny but…the late Nineties / early Naughties are about when I started transitioning to the liberty-loving Right, after noticing that the Left was getting more silly, dishonest and hysteria-prone – which I thought the Right had been too much of, up to that point. And Milo has also expressed the idea that in the 90s, the Right was too much into saying nasty ridiculous things and he would have been anti-Right back then, but today the Left is much worse (so Milo has to be anti-Left).

Could it be that Milo and I each felt – and rejected – the creepy, hateful, dishonest spirit and work of David Brock, as it traveled from Right to Left? Without knowing what it was?

And the current, widespread distrust in the media – is that also about 2 decades of the baleful influence of Soros-Brock, boomeranging?

#NothingGate: Because yeah, they’ve got a lot to hide

Scott Adams has dubbed the Trump Jr scandal #NothingGate – There’s nothing there, but it sure is terrible.

We all know the signs. A couple hours ago, MSNBC was quoting campaign finance law about how campaigns are not supposed to take foreign contributions.

FOR REAL. Yes, I Laughed Out Loud. Right in front of everybody at the gym.

The law clearly talks about money and OBJECTS (the ordinary meaning of “things”) of value. Here is what they were quoting:

A foreign national shall not, directly or indirectly, make a contribution or a donation of money or other thing of value, or expressly or impliedly promise to make a contribution or a donation, in connection with any Federal, State, or local election.

First, the words are written *on the foreign national*. Second: Only in a McCarthy-ite, Salem Witch Hunt world could the words be stretched to cover knowledge (which, in the context of a campaign, is called opposition research). AND…AND…AND…IF the words are indeed to be stretched so very far, then Hillary’s campaign was equally-or-even-more guilty.

Seriously…Are these people thinking at all? Well, we know they’re not. This is “what insanity looks like”. These people aren’t following any rational thought process.

Why would they not? The obvious reason: Deflection. Distraction.

  • Let’s not talk about Hillary’s campaign violations.
  • Let’s not talk about her campaign’s meetings with officials of a foreign government, in an effort to obtain valuable knowledge (or opposition research) on her opponent from those foreign officials.
  • Let’s not talk about all the Saudi money (which would be illegal indeed) in her campaign.
  • Let’s not talk about the Hillary campaign’s documented, illegal levels of collusion with the media.
  • Let’s not talk about all the Fake News, “Hillary is ahead!” and “Hillary is a lock to win!”, that the media perpetrated to try to depress Republican/Trump voter turnout.
  • Let’s not talk about the basic fact that she was a terrible candidate – and she lost.
  • Let’s not talk about the massive Clinton Foundation corruption.
  • Let’s not talk about Hillary’s collusion in giving Russia 20% of America’s uranium supply, apparently in exchange for hefty speaking fees and other yuge donations.
  • Let’s not talk about her campaign chair, John Podesta, and his brother being on Russia’s payroll for years.
  • Let’s not talk about Hillary and the Obama administration colluding to obstruct justice, in the Hillary e-mail investigation.
  • Let’s not talk about the indictments coming, hopefully, for James “Leaker” Comey.
  • Let’s not talk about the unbelievable scandal of the Obama administration spying on domestic political opponents. And the intelligence agencies going along with it.
  • Let’s not talk about the fact that the entire “Russia hacking narrative” has been a lie from minute one and, accordingly, the leadership of U.S. intelligence agencies are seriously politicized and compromised, meaning President Trump had better clean house – for America’s good.
  • Let’s not talk about the Trump administration’s progress and successes.
  • No, no, no. Deflect, deny, distract, handwave, keep screaming “Trump!!!!1!”

Fortunately, none of this needs to matter. The Controlled Media, the Left, and the “political class” have lost a lot of power. What we’re seeing now are the throes of their cognitive dissonance; their refusal to believe it. Having done nothing whatsoever wrong in this matter, Trump – and Trump Jr. – need only stay strong and clear-headed, and they will survive; and survival is victory.

My one, little doubt about this situation would be: Whether they will stay strong? We shall see. I know, I know…their track record argues that they will.

Russia psychosis update

Just to follow up my earlier post on the Donald Trump, Jr. situation. It turns out that:

  • Someone called Rob Goldstone, a British publicist, arranged the meeting between Trump, Jr. and Veselnitskaya in June 2016.
  • In a good act of transparency, Trump Jr. has released the emails that led up to it. (The left-leaning Guardian calls them “damning”; but of course they aren’t.)
  • Trump Jr. took the meeting because he was a campaign operative and Goldstone promised – but then failed to deliver – a Russian whistleblower with “some official documents and information that would incriminate Hillary and her dealings with Russia…”
  • Per USA Today:

    Goldstone [arranged the meeting] at the request of his client, Azerbaijani-born pop singer Emin Agalarov, whose ties to Veselnitskaya are unclear.

    [She] stated she had some information regarding illegal campaign contributions to the (Democratic National Committee)…

    At the meeting, Goldstone said Veselnitskaya “presented a few very general remarks regarding campaign funding and then quickly turned the topic to something else.” (Multiple reports say she then spoke about Russia barring Americans from adopting…)

    At that point, Goldstone said, “the meeting was halted by Don Jr., and we left. Nothing came of that meeting and there was no follow-up between the two parties.”

  • Also, Veselnitskaya had NO meaningful ties to Putin or anyone high-level in the Russian government.

The emails make clear that Trump Jr. took the meeting because he wanted to expose illegal Hillary-Russia collusion, if that existed. He was told, in effect, that he was meeting a whistleblower. He surely knew that Hillary has a history of colluding with the Russians, seemingly in exchange for money.

It’s Orwellian that Trump Jr’s interest in exposing Hillary-Russia collusion (if more of that existed) would now be depicted as him supposedly colluding with Russians. But that’s the mentally-ill world we live in. Anti-Trumpers are calling these latest Nothing Burgers “explosive”, “disturbing”, “potentially treasonous”, and “the smoking gun”, because supposedly “The exchange demonstrates that the Trump campaign was eager for help from Russia” (Slate).

It’s all nonsense. It’s normal for campaigns to meet with anyone – American or foreign – who might have dirt on opponents. The term of art is “opposition research”. As noted below, Hillary’s campaign sure met with foreigners, to do it. And again, Trump Jr’s evidenced intent was to expose Russia collusion that he thought Hillary could be doing.

The whole incident smells like a setup, that Trump Jr. rightly dodged. As suggested in my earlier post, we need to know more about Goldstone’s, Agalarov’s, and/or Veselnitskaya’s ties to the Democrat dirty-tricks shop, Fusion GPS.

Sorry, lefties. Once more, you push the fake “Russia hacked the election – and Trump colluded” narrative, and you come up way short.

Here’s a couple stories worth looking at, lefties:

  • How Ukraine hacked the election. Ukraine officials met with Hillary/DNC operatives to try to dig up dirt on Trump. (Exact same thing that you’re freaked out about, with Trump Jr.)
  • How Saudi Arabia hacked the election. Crown Prince Salman asserted that he was responsible for 20% of Hillary’s campaign funds. As ZH puts it, ” It is illegal in the United States for foreign countries to try to influence the outcome of elections by funding candidates.”

Lefties – I understand your need to lie to yourselves about Trumprussia, but –
Why don’t you care about Ukraine hacking our democracy?
Why don’t you care about Saudi Arabia hacking our democracy?
Why don’t you care about Saudi Arabia and Qatar’s massive pay-for-play donations to the Clinton Foundation?
Why don’t you care about Hillary’s Russia collusion in giving away 20% of the U.S. uranium supply to Russia?
Why don’t you care about Bill, and the Podesta brothers, taking massive “fees” and other payoffs from Russian companies?

Palate cleanser: Lefties practicing their self-defense skills. It’s funny to see lisping, up-talk-y gamma males going on about martial arts – with zero self-awareness about how Antifa and the Left are the violent people in America today.

UPDATE: Yes, Veselnitskaya hangs with Democrats.

When you’re a walking train wreck, it will take a toll

CNN led the cheerleading for Hillary in 2016. That turned out to be B.S. Then CNN led the Trumprussia collusion story in 2017. That was also B.S., with CNN having to retract more than one story and fire more than one employee.

Then we had the Project Veritas videos of CNN employees calling their own employer’s Trumprussia coverage “B.S.” and a “nothing burger” that was done to “spike the ratings”, and calling the American voter – in other words, their own audience – “stupid as sh*t”. And this week, we had the spectacle of CNN – a $20 billion company – using its vast resources to intimidate a private citizen whose meme they didn’t like. And gloating about it.

And yesterday, CNN spread more fake news about a non-existent snubbing of President Trump. (Check out the video. Another nothing burger. Can you believe they spend time on such crap?)

As CNN’s self-destruction proceeds, their ratings have begun to drop. If you prefer your news in the form of visual memes, this might give you the idea:

Real threats to journalists’ safety

#RetardedCNN thought they had scored bigly, because they tracked down a nobody who launched a silly Internet meme – a funny gif of Trump beating down CNN’s company logo. And because they were able to terrorize the nobody into begging CNN’s forgiveness.

Hey CNN, how about getting back to real life? Try this one on:

On the fifth anniversary of [a controversy], I appeared on stage with five other people. Of those five… [and for having spoken about the controversy,] one was shot at point-blank range. The other had his event shot-up and two people were killed. Another was forced out of public life entirely. And the fourth had her family’s restaurant fire-bombed. Those are real threats against media figures that go on… right now.

Can you guess

  1. The specific controversy?
  2. The larger theme – who did it? Who does those kinds of attack on public media figures, in real life?

The first answer might not be obvious, but the second should be super obvious. Hint: It wasn’t Trump supporters, or conservatives of any stripe. (more…)
