Democrats are “walking away” (#WALKAWAY) from the lies and the foolishness of the democrat party and choosing to support President Trump!

(Please refer to my previous blog, “Just #walkaway Renee…,” from August 10, 2018, for a more complete background on the “#walkaway” movement.)

President Trump is poised to formally launch his 2020 re-election campaign Tuesday night in Orlando, Fla., and many of his supporters have been camped outside the Amway Center in anticipation.

According to local reports, the first Trump supporters showed up as early as 2:30 a.m. Monday for President Trump’s rally, which is slated to start at 8 p.m. on Tuesday and will be broadcast live on the Fox News Channel!

Fox News correspondent Lauren Blanchard was on the scene Tuesday morning on “Fox & Friends,” meeting some of the people who are looking forward to seeing the president.

Three women, Maria, Nancy and Jenny, arrived Monday afternoon and camped overnight.

‘“We are all former Dems,’ Maria told Blanchard, saying they all support the ‘Walk Away’ [#WALKAWAY] movement for disillusioned Democrats.”

Yes my democrat friends…, walk away from “the dark side” and set yourself free to acknowledge the truth.

away 4

Walk away from “the dark side” and set yourself free to see the liberal propaganda for what it is.

Walk away from “the dark side” and choose life instead of death.

Walk away from “the dark side,” which puts our country and its people last, instead of putting us first.

“Nancy said the president ‘unites everybody’ at his rallies and it feels like a ‘rock concert’ for those in attendance.”

“The president tweeted on Monday morning that his campaign has received more than 100,000 ticket requests for the event in an arena that only holds 20,000 people.”

Apparently, L.A. isn’t on-board with California’s “sanctuary” and “open border” policies.

A recent headline by Andrew O’Reilly of Fox News read, “Border War: Los Angeles officials clash with burbs over homeless ‘dumping’”

“Border war?”

How can you be embroiled in a “border war” if you don’t believe in the concept of borders?

LA 12

LA 1

At least that’s what I’ve been hearing from all of your liberal representatives back in Washington.

They’re calling the situation there a “crisis.”

I’ll tell you what L.A., when you decide to recognize we have a crisis on the southern border, we’ll consider recognizing your “crisis.”

Until then, I’d have to say that your “crisis” is manufactured.

LA 11

I’d have to say the only “crisis” you have there is a crisis in leadership.

Does any of this sound familiar?

It should.

Because we hear these kind of comments regarding illegal immigration on our southern border, on a daily basis, from democrats and the “biased, liberal propaganda, fake news media.”

LA 10

You’re also claiming the suburbs there are “dumping” homeless people in your city.

Based on your welcoming nature of illegal immigrants into our country, you should be welcoming these people into your community with open arms as well.

You are a “sanctuary” city after all, aren’t you?

LA 8

If your type of immigration policies are good for our country, why wouldn’t they be good for your city?

Just sayin”.

O’Reilly continues by saying, “The debate over shelters and affordable housing is a much larger issue in California, but L.A. city officials say they just want their neighbors to follow the law and do their part.”

So the people in L.A. “just want their neighbors to follow the law and do their part.”

LA 9

Ohhh…, now they want people to follow the law!

Never mind their sanctuary policies that look the other way of the law when they release illegal immigrants out onto the streets as opposed to letting The U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) know they have these people in custody.

Never mind their stances on illegal immigration that have no problem ignoring proper, and legal processes for people coming to our country.

Never mind their willingness to spend the money of U.S. citizens, intended to be spent on other U.S. citizens, on illegal immigrants instead.

You’ve got a lot of nerve L.A.

And your level of hypocrisy has reached new heights.

Please don’t expect any sympathy from the rest of us unwashed “deplorables!”

The New York Times cries, “Democracy is not going to save itself!”

Ahhh, the noble and misguided New York Times.

What are we referring to here?

David Montanaro of Fox News reported, “In a new op-ed Friday, author and columnist Michelle Goldberg warned that President Trump is “unbound,” arguing that his remark this week on potentially accepting dirt from foreign countries on his political rivals shows he has “no loyalty” to the United States.”

“In the New York Times piece, titled ‘Trump to America: Who’s Going to Stop Me?’ Goldberg questions whether the ‘alarming’ moment will galvanize the opposition.”

‘“Maybe the insult of it can jolt the country out of its current stasis,’ she wrote.”

OK…, time out Michelle.

President Trump was only talking…, responding to a hypothetical question posed to him.

fake 4

While your friend, Hillary Clinton, not only accepted “dirt” from a foreign country, during the 2016 election…, she actually paid to get that “dirt.”

Where was your outrage at her actual actions as opposed to the President’s hypothetical words?

fake 5

I just can’t believe you are that ignorant Michelle, so I just have to assume you are simply a manipulative, liberal propagandist.

“Trump said in an interview with ABC News that he would listen to information from foreign governments, saying that ‘there isn’t anything wrong with listening.’ He also gave conflicting answers on whether he’d contact the FBI, saying at one point that he would not.”

Who could blame the President if he had second thoughts on sharing anything with the FBI, since they were illegally spying on him and basically planning a coup against him over there.

Just some minor considerations that Michelle Goldberg would never dignify with a mention (propaganda by omission).

“Goldberg said the so-called Trump ‘Resistance is exhausted by last year’s push to retake the House and deflated by the anti-climactic aftermath of the Mueller report.’”

Awww…, do all of the hardworking, anti-American, liberal babies need a nappy wappy?

Good!

‘“For two and a half years, as Trump has treated his oath of office the way he’s rumored to have treated a Moscow hotel bed, it’s felt as if something has to give. But day by day, what’s giving is the will to stop him,’ she wrote.”

I’m not really sure what Michelle is talking about here, but I hope she’s not referring to allegations in the discredited Steele dossier!

In either case, her message here is confused one and an illegitimate one, as well as being disingenuous.  All qualities of a good little liberal “journalist!”

fake 3

‘“Two years ago the president basically admitted to obstruction of justice on television when he told an interviewer, Lester Holt of NBC, that he’d fired James Comey as F.B.I. director because of the Russia investigation. Now he’s telling us, again on TV, that having gotten away with accepting foreign help in an election once, he’s planning to do it again. I know everyone’s tired. But democracy is not going to save itself,’ she concluded.”

Geez Michelle…, you are just full of disinformation, and full of sh%t!

I’ll tell you what…, you go ahead and worry about saving whatever you think “democracy” is, and President Trump and the rest of us will continue to worry about saving America!

MAKING AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!

The Office of Special Counsel recommends firing the President’s counselor, Kellyanne Conway, over alleged Hatch Act violations!?

First of all…, what the heck is “The Office of Special Counsel?!”

And second of all, what the heck is the Hatch Act?!

According to online-sources, “The United States Office of Special Counsel (OSC) is a permanent independent federal investigative and prosecutorial agency.”

Please note that “independent” is usually a code word that actually means “liberal.”

“The OSC’s primary mission is the safeguarding of the merit system in federal employment by protecting employees and applicants from ‘prohibited personnel practices,’ especially reprisal for ‘whistleblowing.’”

Ahhh yes…, “safeguarding” and “whistleblowing.”  Let’s be clear…, the only “safeguarding” that takes place is reserved for members of “the swamp.”  Regarding “whistleblowing,” the OSC protects federal employees who are whistleblowers UNLESS that whistleblowing has to do with liberal activity or liberal individuals…, in which case the whistleblowers are either ignored or vilified.

“The agency also operates a secure channel for federal whistleblower disclosures of violations of law, rule, or regulation; gross mismanagement; gross waste of funds; abuse of authority; and substantial and specific danger to public health and safety.”

For example…, how many charges of “gross mismanagement” or “gross waste of funds” have you ever heard come out of this office before?

None, right?

I sure don’t remember any.

So, I guess there has never been any “gross mismanagement” or “gross waste of funds” in the federal government!

That’s really good to know!

I’m sooo relieved!

Again…, this “secure channel” is really a “secure filter” that determines whether the allegation ever sees the light of day.

“In addition, OSC issues advice on the Hatch Act and enforces its restrictions on partisan political activity by government employees.”

This is the area we are dealing with in this case.

“OSC has a staff of around 120 and is currently run by Henry Kerner.”

According to Brooke Singman of Fox News, “The Office of Special Counsel recommended Thursday that Kellyanne Conway be fired from the federal government for violating the Hatch Act on ‘numerous occasions.’”

“The OSC said, in a report released Thursday, that White House Counselor Conway violated the Hatch Act by ‘disparaging Democratic presidential candidates’ while speaking in her official capacity during television interviews and on social media.”

kelly 5

‘“Ms. Conway’s violations, if left unpunished, would send a message to all federal employees that they need not abide by the Hatch Act’s restrictions. Her actions thus erode the principal foundation of our democratic system—the rule of law,’ the OSC said in a statement Thursday, noting that Conway has been a ‘repeat offender.’”

In review…, the Hatch Act deals with enforcing restrictions on partisan political activity by government employees.

Please enlighten me as to which spokesperson, for any president, has dealt in a non-partisan manner?

If I were to list all of the government employees here that were ever “guilty” of partisan political statements and activities here, the list would virtually be endless.

kelly 8

What we have here is another case of “swamp fever” and/or “Trump derangement syndrome” rearing its ugly head.

kelly 7

kelly 6

These people have to be kidding, right?

Meanwhile, “The White House on Thursday blasted the OSC ruling as ‘unprecedented.’”

Yes…, and that’s EXACTLY what it was…, “UNPRECEDENTED.”

‘“The Office of Special Counsel’s (OSC) unprecedented actions against Kellyanne Conway are deeply flawed and violate her constitutional rights to free speech and due process.  Others, of all political views, have objected to the OSC’s unclear and unevenly applied rules which have a chilling effect on free speech for all federal employees,’ deputy press secretary Steven Groves said in a statement Thursday. ‘Its decisions seem to be influenced by media pressure and liberal organizations – and perhaps OSC should be mindful of its own mandate to act in a fair, impartial, non-political manner, and not misinterpret or weaponize the Hatch Act.’”

kelly 3

Well, that’s really putting it nicely.

What happens when The Office of Special Counsel is the one displaying “partisan political activity by government employees?”

Just sayin’.

Senator Bernie Sanders and “the big lie(s).”

Watching some news clips recently from a couple of Bernie Sanders’ campaign speeches, Bernie impressed upon me the level of disdain he and many of his friends actually have for President Trump.

It is so apparent that they are all deathly afraid of President Trump and how he is able to drag them and their motives out into the sunlight.

They will literally say and/or do ANYTHING to delegitimize and obstruct him.

He began by stating that President Trump, “is the worst president in the history of the country.”

bernie 10

He then said that President Trump’s administration is, “the most corrupt administration in history.”

He then added that President Trump “is a pathological liar.”

Not just a liar, mind you, but a “pathological liar.”

We’ll get back to this pathological liar thing later.

anti bernie sanders memes Pretty Anti Government Jokes

The democrats and the “biased, liberal propaganda, fake news media” certainly have pushed these three false narratives, but they are all undeniably unfounded by any measure. But this is the way of the socialist and fascist political establishment.

bernie 4

“If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.” – Joseph Goebbels, Nazi Propaganda Minister

I believe Joseph Goebbels would be proud of Bernie Sanders’ efforts in the regard!

bernie 1

Bernie then proceeded to accuse President Trump of being:

A racist.

A sexist.

A bigot.

A religious bigot.

A homophobe.

A xenophobe.

A transphobe.

And last but not least…, an Islamophobe.

Then, of course, we have a whole list of things President Trump is “anti.”

He’s anti-this, anti-that, anti-this and anti-that.

Is there ANY negative type of connotation that hasn’t been attached to President Trump?

And they complain about President Trump’s name calling!

The only name he ever called Bernie was “crazy!”

Now there’s a name I think you could make a case for!

The Washington Post…, “Democracy dies on its pages.” 

I’m responding to a recent article in The Washington Post titled, “Sarah Sanders Watch: ‘Mouthpiece for fascism’?”

The article is by Erik Wemple, a media critic for The Washington Post, whose tag line is “Democracy dies in darkness.”

It must be getting pretty “dark” over there at the old Washington Post.

sanders 4

In the article, Mr. Wemple whines about the White House Press Secretary, Sarah Sanders, not having had a traditional White House briefing in quite a while.

Do you really wonder why that is Mr. Wemple, or are you just pretending not to know?

Well…, in case it is the former, I’ll clue you in.

First of all, it’s not written anywhere that these press briefings have to occur at all.

Second, most of the media that attended these briefings were not interested in getting briefed.  They were only interested in attacking President Trump, his administration, and Sarah Sanders.

Is it any wonder this is one tradition The President isn’t too concerned about honoring?

Mr. Wemple then continues to whine that Sarah Sanders seems to prefer to discuss her talking points with more “sympathetic” Fox News interviewers.

sanders 3

I don’t think “Sympathetic” is quite the right word here.  I think I would go with the term “fair and balanced.”

It wasn’t too long ago that I can remember Obama’s press secretaries avoiding the reporters from Fox News as opposed to any of the remaining horde of truly “sympathetic,” liberal propaganda reporters.

I can also recall the Obama administration actually spying on reporters who didn’t play by his “swampy” rules…, but I digress.

Mr. Wemple then proceeds to dredge up the tired “obstruction of justice” topic…, again…, claiming, “The Mueller report documented close to a dozen instances of possible obstruction of justice by President Trump,” while claiming Mueller “did not charge any crimes in deference to Justice Department policy toward sitting presidents.”

If I’ve said this once I’ve said this a hundred times…, IF ROBERT MUELLER COULD HAVE CHARGED PRESIDENT TRUMP WITH A-N-Y-T-H-I-N-G…, BELIEVE ME, HE WOULD HAVE.

IF ROBERT MUELLER COULD HAVE RECOMMENDED CHARGING PRESIDENT TRUMP WITH A-N-Y-T-H-I-N-G…, BELIEVE ME, HE WOULD HAVE.

Mr. Wemple then continues to cry about Sarah Sanders “hitting back” at charges made by various democrats, and actually defending The President and his administration.

You do understand that is precisely what her job is don’t you Mr. Wemple?

sanders 2

He then refers to a tweet by Alec Baldwin (that wise old sage and ever on duty guardian of democracy…, cough, cough), where he referred to Sarah Sanders as a “mouthpiece-for-fascism…,” a claim Mr. Wemple obviously supports.

Fascism?

Fascism, Mr. Wemple?

Ok…, let’s talk about fascism and fascists a little bit.

Have you heard of The Poynter Institute, Mr. Wemple?  I’m sure you have, but most other people haven’t.  It’s kind of a well-kept and camouflaged secret.  In a nutshell, The Poynter Institute is a boot camp for liberal, socialist, fascist, “journalists.”  It’s the kind of “journalism” school that Joseph Goebbels, the Nazi Minister of Propaganda, could really appreciate, and a school that is well represented by many members of the “biased, liberal propaganda, fake news media” who make Washington D.C. their home.

Oh…, and by the way…, was it Sarah Sanders who was pushing the false narrative of Russian collusion for the last 2 years, or was it the “liberal propaganda,” “mainstream” media?

Who again are the fascists attempting to control the media?

In addition…, who in “the media” are the ones accounting for over 90% negative articles concerning President Trump?  If you take out the positive stories (or at least the non-negative ones) by Fox News, that means the rest of “the media” is basically 100% negative 100% of the time.  And saying that doesn’t even cause me to flinch.

Who again are the fascists attempting to control the narrative through negative propaganda and by omission?

Your cover has been blown Eric Wemple.  Just like the cover has been blown for all of the “biased, liberal propaganda, fake news media” since President Trump ran for president.

The “mainstream” media being anywhere close to fair and balanced is the problem here, not Sarah Sanders.

sanders 1

WINNING!

John “the weasel,” “the rat,” “the snitch,” the squealer,” “the stool pigeon,” “the tattletale,” “the back-stabber,” “the double-crosser,” “Judas” Dean is back and getting a little attention from our pathetic democrats in Congress.

According to David Montanaro of Fox News, “Former Nixon White House counsel John Dean said Monday, after testifying before the House Judiciary Committee, that he is ‘honored’ to be considered an enemy by President Trump.”

He’s “honored to be considered an enemy” of the President of the United States.

dean 1

That makes him an enemy of the state, doesn’t it?

That makes him a subversive, doesn’t it?

That may even make him a traitor, does it not?

Well…, it’s not too far of a leap from being a “Judas” or a “double-crosser” to being a traitor.

‘“I think he was disbarred and he went to prison.  Other than that, he’s doing a great job,’ Trump said Monday afternoon.”

Ha!

Joe diGenova, a former US Attorney for the District of Columbia and an Independent Counsel, and now a contributor at Fox News added, “As many have pointed out, Dean is a convicted felon who was disbarred following his criminal role in the Watergate scandal. More important for this farce of a hearing, though, is that Dean has absolutely no first-hand knowledge of the events in question. He’s no more qualified to testify about Russiagate than CNN’s Jim Acosta is to testify about real news.”

“Dean has become a liberal activist since getting out of jail, publishing no fewer than four books blasting Republicans, including one in which he called for President George W. Bush to be impeached long before Donald Trump even announced his run for president.”

So he didn’t have any problems with Jimmy Carter, Bill Clinton or Barack Obama at all, but Ronald Reagan, The Bushes, and President Trump were and are “threats” to our country?

“Dean, a CNN contributor (So he isn’t biased at all!), was asked by Anderson Cooper about Trump attacking him as a ‘loser for many years’ and a ‘sleazebag attorney.’”

dean 3

‘“Well, I’m honored to be on his enemies list,’ Dean responded. ‘I was able to make Nixon’s at the end, and so I’m pleased that I’m on Trump’s given my feelings about the threat he is to this country.’”

Remember…, when these liberals refer to the “country,” they really mean “the swamp.” The really mean the establishment politicians and bureaucrats who are only concerned with their own backsides and the rest of the country be damned.

‘“One of the reasons that I did what I did back during Watergate was the thought that this will never happen again. And one of the reasons I’ve had a knot in my stomach, one of the reasons I’m on CNN is because I’m deeply troubled by the presidency we’re living with,’ he said.”

Yes…, please…, try and justify to us again why you flipped on your boss and snitched him out.

dean 6

News flash…, Watergate was 45 years ago!  45 years ago!  Nobody cares anymore!  Most of the people in this country were not even born yet when John “the loser” Dean was spilling his guts, to save his own backside, on live TV every day.

dean 4

Oh, and John…, you have a “knot” in your stomach because that’s what happens to nervous little weasels, like yourself…, you get scared…, because deep down…, not even too deep down…, you’re just a liberal chicken sh%t who wants some attention and any validation he can get.

“Dean was hammered by House Republicans on the Judiciary Committee Monday. At one point, the hearing room broke out into laughter, as Florida Republican Rep. Matt Gaetz grilled Dean for turning Nixon comparisons into a profitable ‘cottage industry’ for himself.”

“Dean assisted with the Watergate cover up and pleaded guilty to obstruction before becoming a key prosecution witness.”

Maybe Mr. Dean could really put his expertise to work and predict for us who will become the new “John Dean,” regarding the current investigation of the investigators at the FBI and the DOJ.  Which of these weasels going to start singing to save their own backsides, ala John “the weasel” Dean?  Peter Strzok?  Andrew McCabe?  Bruce Ohr?  Lisa Page?  It’s hard to predict because there are so many rats to choose from.

dean 5

In summary, “… outside of Dean’s fantasy land, there is no similarity [between the phony Russian collusion scandal and Watergate]. In Watergate, there were real underlying crimes. Operatives linked to the Nixon Campaign committed numerous felonies as they broke into the Democratic National Committee’s headquarters in the Watergate Hotel.”

“After that, genuine obstruction of justice took place, committed in large part by the Democrats’ own star witness, then-White House Counsel John Dean, who physically destroyed evidence as part of the cover-up.”

“In ‘Russiagate,’ however, there was no underlying crime. There was only the Democrat fantasy, cooked up by the Hillary Clinton campaign, that the Trump Campaign had ‘colluded’ with Russians to steal the 2016 election. That was a lie, as the Mueller report conclusively established.”

“There was also no obstruction of justice. Given that the president knew all along that he was innocent, nothing he did could possibly have constituted the ‘corrupt intent’ necessary for an obstruction charge.”

And that, as they say folks, is that.

Congressman Elijah Cummings gets caught providing a little “quid pro quo,” Hillary Clinton style!

Ahhh…, Mr. Elijah “holier than thou” Cummings!

Mr. Elijah “I’m above reproach” Cummings!

Mr. Elijah “I’m beyond question” Cummings!

Mr. Elijah…, okay…, I think you get the idea.

According to Adam Shaw for Fox News, “House Oversight Committee Chairman Elijah Cummings’ wife reportedly paid her for-profit organization with money from her separate charity as part of a cost-sharing arrangement, a revelation that is adding to mounting ethical questions surrounding her financial dealings.”

elijah 5

“The Daily Caller obtained documents showing that Maya Rockeymoore Cummings’ charity, the Center for Global Policy Solutions (CGPS), paid over $250,000 between 2013 and 2015 to her similarly named for-profit organization, Global Policy Solutions LLC (GPS).”

There is a related article by Brooke Singman, of Fox News, which is titled, “Cummings fights ‘baseless’ allegations against wife’s non-profit agency.”

Have we EVER seen a title like that on an article about President Trump?

A title that would go like, “President Trump fights ‘baseless’ allegations against himself and his family?”

No.

President Trump does not enjoy the same presumption of innocence like Representative Cummings or his wife it seems.

How stupid of me!  Of course, President Trump is a republican and Cummings is a democrat.  What was I thinking?

elijah 4

President Trump represents and fights for the American people, while Cummings and his wife are card carrying members of “the swamp!”

Cummings and his wife also enjoy the protection of the “biased, liberal propaganda, fake news media.”  Although being black, their level of protection is not quite as comprehensive as, let’s say, a Nancy Pelosi or a Jerrold Nadler.

“The documents outline a cost-sharing agreement by which the center shares ‘equipment, facilities, personnel costs and sundry other services.’ But the center also pays GPS 5 percent of the center’s expenses for ‘managing its programs and operations.’”

‘“The Caller’ calculated those management fees to be over $250,000.”

“Conservative watchdog The National Legal and Policy Center (NPLC) said that the latest report points to ‘self-dealing.’”

‘“It’s taking the charity’s resources and turning them into personal profits,’ National Legal and Policy Center (NLPC) investigator Tom Anderson told the Caller. ‘IRS law doesn’t allow a charity for this purpose. This isn’t for the public interest, this is for her personal interest. You can’t do that.’”

Other nonprofit experts warned that the 5 percent fee was a red flag, particularly considering Rep. Cummings’ regulatory authority over business interests that fund the CGPS.

“That connection could be made,” Charity Watch President Daniel Borochoff told the Caller. “All the more reason to get rid of that 5 percent arrangement.”

This isn’t the first set of questions to be raised about the relationship between Cummings’ organizations. The NPLC alleged in a filing to the IRS last month that GPS and CGPS overlapped to derive “illegal private benefit.”

“According to The Washington Examiner, which first reported on that complaint, the nonprofit CGPS received over $6.2 million in grants between 2013 and 2016. The report claims the nonprofit’s financial backers included Google, J.P. Morgan and Prudential, all of which had business interests before the House Oversight Committee, chaired by Cummings, and could pose a conflict of interest.”

Ya’ don’t say?

The very companies that have issues pending before the House Oversight Committee, which just so happens to be chaired by Elijah Cummings, are the same companies who made generous donations to his wife’s “nonprofit” organization.

Wow!  What a coincidence!

It couldn’t be anything but just sheer coincidence could it?

elijah 8

And, of course…, in a statement to Fox News, Congressman Cummings blasted the report as “baseless” and “partisan.”

‘“These baseless claims come from a group funded by right-wing mega-donors known for their political hit jobs,’ Cummings said. ‘I am confident that they will be exposed for what they really are, a fabricated distraction from the important work being done on behalf of Americans, such as lowering the skyrocketing prices of prescription drugs.’”

elijah 1

Ahhh…, so it’s a “hit job” by the ever present “right-wing mega-donors.”  Do you mean someone like George Soros, only on the conservative side as opposed to the socialist/liberal side?

I noticed that Mr. Elijah Cummings didn’t deny the claims…, he just attacks the claimers.

I’m not confident, but I am hoping that Cummings and his wife are exposed for what they are…, cheaters and liberals who feel they are above the law.

Rockeymoore Cummings, in a statement to The Washington Post last month, blasted both the Examiner report and the complaint as a “hit piece.”

“It appears a conservative front group and a news outlet . . . are pushing a hit piece filled with faulty research, lies and innuendo in an attempt to tarnish my personal reputation, professional work and public service as well as that of my spouse,” Rockeymoore Cummings said in a statement to the Post, calling the effort a “distasteful attempt to intimidate my family into silence at such a pivotal moment in our nation’s history.”

Oooooh…, ahhhhh…, “a pivotal moment in our nation’s history!”

What is she talking about?

And you don’t have any personal reputation worth tarnishing by the way, Mrs. Maya Rockeymoore Cummings.

elijah 7

Let’s tell it like it is…, you’re just political climber who glommed onto a well-known politician who is old enough to be your father.

Bam!  That’s it.

And now…, on top of that, you’re not smart enough to keep your sugar daddy, or yourself, out of hot water.

Don’t worry…, I’m sure it’ll turn out okay for you.

Just use the Hillary Clinton defense…, play stupid, and deny, deny, deny.

In your case, playing stupid won’t be that much of a stretch.

elijah 3

If there wasn’t any negative news about President Trump there’d be no news at all!

The “biased, liberal propaganda, fake news media” is just relentless when it comes bashing our president.

In an editorial on the “Investor’s Business Daily” website, they claim, “Media Trump Hatred Shows In 92% Negative Coverage of His Presidency: Study”

They continue by saying, “Anti-Trump Media: To say that the big networks haven’t exactly had a love affair with Donald Trump, as they plainly did with President Obama, is an understatement. A new survey shows that not only is coverage of Trump overwhelmingly negative, but the president’s biggest accomplishment — the roaring economy — gets almost no attention.”

No…, not “almost no attention,” NO attention!

“What they found was, as Trump himself might say, sad: ‘Over the summer, the broadcast networks have continued to pound Donald Trump and his team with the most hostile coverage of a president in TV news history — 92% negative, vs. just 8% positive.’”

I would argue that even these numbers are a misnomer.  I would say news coverage is 92% negative, 7% is just “non-negative” and 1% or less are actually positive.

“Moreover, the very focus of what the media cover is highly selective. Some two-thirds of the Trump coverage came from five topics, including the Russia investigation, immigration, the Brett Kavanaugh nomination, North Korea, and U.S.-Russia relations.

Let’s see, what’s missing from that list? Oh yes, the one thing that’s overwhelmingly positive for President Trump: the economy.”

In other words…, propaganda by omission.

“If we don’t report it, it didn’t happen, or it’s not important.”

Even when they report something of a positive nature, it always has to come with a caveat.

For example, here we have typical negative Trump headline by Joe Williams for FOX Business:

“US adds 75,000 jobs in May, far less than expected.”

Can we not just be glad that we added 75,000 jobs in May?

And what about the unemployment rate in the country that remains at 3.6 percent…, the lowest since 1969?  I haven’t heard much about that.

Propaganda by omission and the “but” news.

President Trump cut taxes for everyone, but…

President Trump has brought manufacturing jobs back to America, but…

President Trump is making NATO allies finally pay their fair share, but…

President Trump is making other countries deal fairly with us regarding trade, but…

But, but, but.

In addition to the “but” news, we also see bizarre, negative, fake news articles that just leaves you scratching your head.

For example:

“Washington Post columnist links Trump’s UK fashion choices to life missteps.”

By Bradford Betz for Fox News.

“If you can’t properly wear a tux, you’re going to have a lot of problems in life, according to Washington Post fashion critic Robin Givhan.”

“Her 965-word, June 5 article dresses down President Trump, the First Lady– and to a lesser extent– his family – for what she called poor fashion sensibilities during an appearance the Buckingham Palace Banquet this week.”

“Givhan goes on to equate fashion with diplomacy. With this equation, Givhan’s concludes, we can gain subtle insights into the president’s mind.’

What?

The “fashion critic” feels the need to join in the Trump bashing as well?

It also appears that “the fashion critic,” an esteemed and necessary position in its own right, is also a qualified psychoanalyst!

Then we have another article published by “Yahoo Style UK,” titled:

“Disrespectful Melania Trump criticized for leaving sunglasses on during D-Day ceremony.”

Excuse me?

How is this this being “disrespectful?”

If anything, Yahoo is being disrespectful of the First Lady.

Then we have an article for the “Style” section of “The Daily Beast,” by   Alaina Demopoulos and Tim Teeman titled:

“Is That a Hat or UFO? Melania and Ivanka Trump Bid a Fashionably Fierce Farewell to U.K.”

Can you ever imagine these people taking pot shots at Michelle Obama’s wardrobe?

Of course not.

The article went on and on about all of the poor Trump fashion choices in their opinion, and finished off by saying, “The queen, meanwhile, looked her usual, utterly on-point distinctive self, in a wonderful hot pink coat dress and hat (with non-life-threatening brim), while imminently doomed British Prime Minister Theresa May donned a curious spearmint coat, with turned in collars, over white dress and a hat that was a complementary satellite dish shape to Melania’s UFO.”

So the bottom line is…, all of the fashion choices made by royals, socialists and liberals are exquisite, while those made by conservatives are horrendous.

Lastly, we have a typical “fake news,” “liberal propaganda” article by   Heather Timmons, titled, “Joe Biden beats Donald Trump in Texas presidential poll.”

Does anyone really believe that Joe Biden would beat Donald Trump in Texas?

Of course not.

They don’t tell us that the poll question that was asked was, “Who is the creepiest presidential candidate?”

In this instance, Joe Biden wins hands down!
