NBC is just “democrat propaganda.”

And in case there was really any doubt about this, Lester “the forehead” Holt and his “journalist” friends just confirmed it!

NBC is just one of the “democrat propaganda” entities, however.

Brian Flood of Fox News reports that, “NBC News anchor Lester Holt received praise from liberal media figures after saying reporters don’t need to hear both sides of a story before determining the ‘truth.’”

‘“I think it’s become clear that fairness is overrated … the idea that we should always give two sides equal weight and merit does not reflect the world we find ourselves in,’ Holt said on Tuesday night while accepting an award at the 45th Murrow Symposium.”

Spoken like a true “fake news” propagandist!

He doesn’t have time for “fairness,” when he’s pushing the democrats’ agenda!

C’mon on!

And don’t be concerned with “determining the truth!”

As a public service (disservice really), we’ll do that for you!

And, boy, these democrats sure like giving each other awards, don’t they!

‘“That the sun sets in the west is a fact. Any contrary view does not deserve our time or attention,’ Holt continued. ‘Decisions to not give unsupported arguments equal time are not a dereliction of journalistic responsibility or some kind of agenda, in fact, it’s just the opposite.’”

So, our friend Lester, here, puts the fact that the sun sets in the west right there with “fact” (according to the democrats) that there is no humanitarian crisis on the Mexican border.

No “dereliction of journalistic responsibility” there!

Can we harken back to an example (one of many) when Lester “the forehead” Holt had a hard time determining “the truth” on our behalf?

According to Brian Flood of Fox News, in an article published January 24, 2018, “NBC News is reeling after ‘Nightly News’ anchor Lester Holt appears to have been badly fooled by North Korean propagandists — giving a cheery report from a ski resort in the Hermit Kingdom that looked to be bustling when it was widely known to actually be a ghost town.”

Huh.

A propagandist being fooled by other propagandists. 

Definitely not a good look there.

“Holt — who returned early from North Korea after scathing reviews — reported for ‘Nightly News’ from the Masikryong ski resort on Monday, a facility that is the brainchild of Supreme Leader Kim Jong Un and is typically empty. The resort, built to create the appearance of a prosperous nation, was largely deserted during peak 2017 ski season, according to multiple reports.”

On a side note, this was done by Kim in an attempt to show his country was on par with South Korea, which was preparing to host the Winter Olympics.

“But for Holt’s appearance, the North Korean government appears to have brought in skiers — wearing identical outfits — and staged the scene, something Holt did not appear to realize.”

“The resort is a ‘source of immense pride for a country trying to present a new and modern face to the world,’ Holt said during his report.”

“NBC News did not respond to requests for comment as to whether Holt’s unexpectedly early departure from North Korea was related to the embarrassing ski resort snafu. But inside 30 Rockefeller Plaza, NBC’s more seasoned journalists were cringing.”

“Supreme Leader Kim Jong Un famously rode the ski lift, without skies, when touting his resort.”

“Holt’s coverage was overseen by embattled NBC News President Noah Oppenheim, who traveled with Holt and a camera crew to North Korea weeks before the Peacock Network will cover the 2018 Winter Olympics in PyeongChang, South Korea. Now Holt’s credulous reporting has cast a cloud over the network’s ability to accurately portray the Korean peninsula going into the Olympics.”

This is they guy you’re supposed to trust to tell you “the truth?” 

‘“It’s been reported that the state-of-the-art resort cost the Kim regime $35 million to build, even with slave labor, while most of the country starved,’ the Daily Mail wrote. ‘It is a bizarre thing to prioritize in an impoverished nation with a ramshackle infrastructure where around 40 percent of its people are undernourished.’”

‘“Yes, NBC is eager to promote next month’s Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang, South Korea. But that hardly required anyone to travel north of the DMZ to film propaganda for a regime that enslaves 25 million people — and holds another 50 million southerners as quasi-hostages, under constant (if low-grade) threat of war,’ an editorial said.”

“As for Holt, the North Korean trip is his biggest debacle since he hosted the first presidential debate in September of 2016, when he was widely criticized for anti-Trump bias, so much so that ‘NBC Nightly News’ dropped sharply in the ratings when compared to arch-rival ABC, and has yet to recover.”

Remember, Holt sees no reason to “hear both sides of a story before determining the “truth.”

Flood then continues, “Holt then said ‘providing an open platform for misinformation, for anyone to come say whatever they want, especially when issues of public health and safety are at stake, can be quite dangerous,’ before declaring the duty of reporters is to be ‘fair to the truth.’”

Of course, that isn’t taking into consideration your own platform for “misinformation,” right Lester?!

“Critics of Holt’s approach saw his comments as essentially a dog whistle to liberal reporters who see themselves as the arbiters of truth and, therefore, can cover the news from a one-sided perspective with the approval of NBC’s top anchor.”

“Cornell Law School professor and media critic William A. Jacobson didn’t think Holt’s remarks apply to the modern world where outspoken liberals are often working as journalists.”

‘“In a better world in which the mainstream major media had a history of fairness and non-partisanship, Holt’s point that journalism inherently involves filtering information might make sense. This is not such a better world, this is a world in which the mainstream major media wears its partisanship on its sleeve, manipulating the news cycle to the advantage of Democrats,’ Jacobson told Fox News. ‘In the real world, Holt’s advice simply justifies media political bias.’”

“Left-wing New York University journalism professor Jay Rosen felt Holt’s comments were reason to celebrate.”

‘“When the chief anchor of one of the major networks agrees that ‘bothsidesing’ everything is bad practice, critics have finally won a point and they should celebrate,’ Rosen tweeted.”

Woohoo!

“Fake news” all the way!!!

“Rosen followed up: ‘Someone like Lester Holt is a center of gravity among news workers and if he thinks it’s okay not to both sides everything that can influence thought and behavior across a lot of desks.’”

“CNN’s left-leaning ‘Reliable Sources’ 9which are anything but “reliable”) media newsletter highlighted Holt’s remarks as a ‘sharp critique of bothsidesism,’ a notable turn of phrase from a reporting team that almost completely reserves its criticisms for right-leaning outlets, including calls for censorship.”

Censorship is, of course, is the bellwether strategy for a fascist political party.

“Outspokenly liberal CNN White House correspondent John Hardwood simply wrote, ‘Thank you’ to Holt.”

So, at least we know where all of these “jounalists” are coming from…, as if we didn’t already know.

“Holt replaced Brian Williams as anchor of ‘NBC Nightly News’ in 2015 after Williams admitted to lying about an Iraq War story he’d told for years. He was suspended without pay for six months but eventually returned as an anchor for MSNBC, NBC’s left-wing (you mean more left-wing) cable affiliate.”

Fake News…, Fake News everywhere!

According to David Rutz of Fox News, “The Washington Post made a massive correction Monday to a January report about a phone call between then-President Donald Trump and Georgia elections investigator Frances Watson, admitting it wrongly attributed multiple quotes to Trump based on an anonymous source.”

An “Anonymous source.”

Using “anonymous sources” give the democrat propaganda fake news media license to make up any story they want.

Let’s see how many negative stories are attributed to “anonymous sources” over the next four years about Illegitimate Joe and his democrat friends in Washington. 

My guess would be ZERO.  

Regarding former President Trump, and anyone around him, it was an almost daily occurrence.  

“The Post initially reported Trump had told an official working in Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger’s office to ‘find the fraud’ in the state, which he lost narrowly to Joe Biden, and that she would be a ‘national hero’ if she did.”

My first reaction would be, “so, what?”

“However, a newly emerged recording of the Dec. 23 call found he didn’t use those words. Instead, Trump said she would be ‘praised’ when the ‘right answer comes out’ and encouraged her to closely examine mail-in ballots in Fulton County, the heavily blue and most populated county in the state.”

My biggest issue here is with this “newly emerged recording” stuff.

How many recordings of their calls with former President Trump are there?

It’s like they recorded their conversations with him (Is this even legal?), in the hopes of being able to “catch” him in the act of something…, and if they couldn’t they just made up remarks and attributed them to him.

On a side note, how many “leaked” call with President Biden do you think we’ll be hearing about?

Again, my guess would be ZERO. 

“The Post published a lengthy correction to its story: ‘Correction: Two months after publication of this story, the Georgia secretary of state released an audio recording of President Donald Trump’s December phone call with the state’s top elections investigator. The recording revealed that The Post misquoted Trump’s comments on the call, based on information provided by a source. Trump did not tell the investigator to ‘find the fraud’ or say she would be ‘a national hero’ if she did so. Instead, Trump urged the investigator to scrutinize ballots in Fulton County, Ga., asserting she would find ‘dishonesty’ there. He also told her that she had ‘the most important job in the country right now.’ A story about the recording can be found here. The headline and text of this story have been corrected to remove quotes misattributed to Trump.’”

Well, isn’t that nice?

“CNN also reported on the call citing an unnamed source and waited until Monday afternoon to correct its story, after initially stating Trump said ‘national hero’ and ‘find the fraud’ in its opening paragraph. Many outlets picked up the story, including Vox, ABC News, and NBC News.”

This shouldn’t come as a surprise to anybody.

They all jumped into the pool of lies and democrat propaganda, just like they always do.

Sooo predictably “swampy.”

“While news outlets often cite sources who paraphrase conversations they participated in or overheard, using quotes indicates to the reader a subject said those exact words.”

Reeeeeally?

Thank you, professor!

‘“Our media are so, so, so breathtakingly corrupt,’ Fox News contributor Mollie Hemingway tweeted. ‘They *always* mischaracterized this call — in a corrupt and fraudulent way. But to actually make up quotes in service of that? We are so screwed. By our disgustingly corrupt and unaccountable media.’”

Much like their “mischaracterizations” of President Trump’s call with the Ukrainian President…, only those “mischaracterizations” were much worse.   

“After MSNBC’s Hayes Brown defended the Post and praised its correction, Hemingway fired back that it was hardly a ‘self-policing win.’”

‘“So, they made up quotes? What in the actual F?’ conservative CNN commentator Mary Katharine Ham tweeted.”

“Conservative writer Mark Hemingway said the Post’s correction and new headline did not adequately reflect its wrongdoing, calling the mistake ‘beyond serious’ and indicative of the lack of accountability in corporate media.”

“In the conversation with Watson, Trump continued to claim he won Georgia by ‘hundreds of thousands of votes’ (which he did) and ‘something bad happened’ there (which it did).”

“Watson told Trump her team and the Georgia Bureau of Investigation was focused on finding the truth and looking into any claims of fraud or wrongdoing.”

“Trump was the first Republican to lose the state in a presidential election since 1992. He repeatedly attacked Raffensperger and Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp, R., after he lost the race there, accusing them of being corrupt. Multiple audits and investigations did not uncover evidence of widespread fraud in the state, and recounts confirmed the result.”

Former President Trump has responded by saying, “While I appreciate the Washington Post’s correction, which immediately makes the Georgia Witch Hunt a non-story, the original story was a Hoax, right from the very beginning.”

And, “You will notice that establishment media errors, omissions, mistakes, and outright lies always slant one way—against me and against Republicans.,” President Trump said. “Meanwhile, stories that hurt Democrats or undermine their narratives are buried, ignored, or delayed until they can do the least harm—for example, after an election is over.”

And lastly, President Trump added, “Look no further than the negative coverage of the vaccine that preceded the election and the overdue celebration of the vaccine once the election had concluded. A strong democracy requires a fair and honest press. This latest media travesty underscores that legacy media outlets should be regarded as political entities (I would say ‘enemies.’), not journalistic enterprises.”

As we have discussed before, the “media” is supposed to act as a watchdog of government for the people.  When they become participants in the spreading of propaganda for any political interests, “We are so screwed,” in the words of Mollie Hemingway.

Totalitarianism in America…, today!

Are you totally sure?

Totally.

It could be characterized as a form of neo-leftist fascism, as well.

According to dictionary.com, totalitarianism means, “A system of government that is centralized and dictatorial and requires complete subservience to the state.”

Starting to sound familiar?

Yael Halon of Fox News reports that, “Ex-Clinton adviser [and ex-Al Gore advisor] [and renowned liberal author], Naomi Wolf, warns US becoming ‘totalitarian state before our eyes under Biden.’”

We really have to give Dr. Naomi Wolf some credit here.

Her books and her concerns about this issue were really born at the end of the George W. Bush’s second term in office, back in 2006. Her warnings and concerns then intensified during the Trump years, as she loyally parroted the false, democrat, anti-conservative, and anti-Trump propaganda.

Again, to her credit, she could not intellectually accept the democrat narrative any longer as she witnessed what was occurring, leading up to the 2020 election, and what has taken place since.

Dr. Wolf has now correctly come to realize IT IS THE DEMOCRATS WHO ARE ATTEMPTING TO ESTABLISH A TOTALITARIAN STATE…, not President Trump, and not the conservatives.

“The author tells ‘Tucker Carlson Tonight’ that Americans must wake up before it is ‘too dangerous to fight back.’”

“Naomi Wolf sounds alarm at the growing power of ‘autocratic tyrants.’ America is becoming a ‘totalitarian state before our eyes’ under President Biden’s leadership, feminist author and former Democratic adviser Naomi Wolf told ‘Tucker Carlson Tonight.’”

“Wolf, who served as an adviser on Bill Clinton’s reelection campaign in 1996, told host Tucker Carlson that in her view, the United States is swiftly ‘moving into a coup situation, a police state’ as a result of Biden’s ongoing coronavirus-related economic shutdowns. Wolf added that she believes the orders are being improperly extended under the ‘guise of a real medical pandemic.’”

‘“That is not a partisan thing,’ Wolf told Carlson. ‘That transcends everything that you and I might disagree or agree on. That should bring together left and right to protect our Constitution.’”

“Wolf has ramped up her warnings against extended lockdowns on Twitter in recent months. In November, the author wrote on Twitter that Biden’s openness to reinstating additional shutdowns made her question her decision to vote for him.”

I’m sure we’ll be hearing shortly that her Twitter account has been suspended, or cancelled altogether. 

‘“The state has now crushed businesses, kept us from gathering in free assembly to worship as the First Amendment provides, is invading our bodies … which is a violation of the Fourth Amendment, restricting movement, fining us in New York state … the violations go on and on,’ she said.”

“The outspoken liberal, who previously authored a book outlining the ten steps that ‘would-be tyrants always take when they want to close down a democracy,’ believes the United States is heading toward what she refers to as ‘step 10.’”

‘“Whether they are on the left or the right, they [totalitarians] do these same ten things,’ Wolf explained, ‘and now we’re at something I never thought I would see in my lifetime … it is step 10 and that is the suspension of the rule of law and that is when you start to be a police state, and we’re here. There is no way around it.’”

“Wolf said she has interviewed U.S. citizens of various backgrounds and political affiliations who are in a state of ‘shock and horror’ as ‘autocratic tyrants at the state and now the national level are creating this kind of merger of corporate power and government power, which is really characteristic of the totalitarian fascism in the ‘20’s,’ she told Carlson.”

‘“They are using that to engage in emergency orders that simply strip us of our rights; rights to property, rights to assembly, rights to worship, all the rights the Constitution guarantees.’”

Dr. wolf also noted during the interview, that nowhere in the Constitution does it say that the rights provided there could be suspended for any reason. 

“Wolf called the United States’ overall response to the coronavirus pandemic ‘completely unprecedented,’ arguing that ‘lockdowns have never been done in society and really, we are turning into a of totalitarian state right before everyone’s eyes.’”

‘“I really hope we wake up quickly,’ she said, ‘because history also shows that it’s a small window in which people can fight back before it is too dangerous to fight back.’”

Wow…, those are strong words, coming from someone who has been a self-proclaimed liberal for the majority of her life.

And I’m sure she still thinks of herself as a liberal, although not a “liberal” with totalitarian ambitions.   

In her book “The End of America: Letter of Warning to a Young Patriot,” published in 2007, Wolf takes a historical look at the rise of fascism, outlining 10 steps necessary for a fascist group (or government) to destroy the democratic character of a nation-state. The book details how this pattern was implemented in Nazi Germany, Fascist Italy, and elsewhere, and analyzes its emergence and application of all the 10 steps in American political affairs since the September 11 attacks. Alex Beam wrote in The New York Times: “In the book, Wolf insists that she is not equating [George W.] Bush with Hitler, nor the United States with Nazi Germany, then proceeds to do just that.”

Give Me Liberty: A Handbook for American Revolutionaries,” published in 2008, was written as a sequel to “The End of America: Letter of Warning to a Young Patriot.” In the book, Wolf looks at times and places in history where citizens were faced with the closing of an open society and successfully fought back.

Leaders frequently attributed to ruling totalitarian regimes, from left to right and top to bottom in picture, include Joseph Stalin, former General Secretary of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union; Adolf Hitler, former Führer of Germany; Mao Zedong, former Chairman of the Communist Party of China; Benito Mussolini, former Duce of Italy; and Kim Il-sung, the Eternal President of North Korea.

The NEW totalitarians:

It is my opinion that Joe Biden is just a puppet in this whole grand scheme, and that he is just happy to be in the White House, to read what they put on the teleprompter for him, and to sign what they tell him to.

Kamala Harris, also, really doesn’t factor into much of this either.  She was a human prop who was used to garner minority and female votes, and that’s about it.

The real “New totalitarians” are those shown after those two.

I have heard it said that George Soros could be one of the people who really dictates what they want done. This is the real difference betwen this “new totalitarianism” and totalitarian regimes of the past. In the past, these regimes were all led by tyranical “front men.” Now, the people calling the shots are ghosts behind the scenes, but just as dangerous.

The other cast of characters: AOC, “the squad,” Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren, et al, along with mainstream media, and the “useful idiots” of the “deep state,” are really into socialism and not so much the totalitarian aspect of what is happening around them, although they all seem to be willing, if not unknowing, participants at this point.  

Again, like the good doctor said, “I really hope we wake up quickly, because history also shows that it’s a small window in which people can fight back before it is too dangerous to fight back.”

Beto O’Rourke said what?!!!

According to David Rutz of Fox News, “Beto O’Rourke says U.S. could become like Nazi Germany in 10 years, despite Biden’s win.”

Despite Biden’s win (which wasn’t really a win, by the way)?!!!

“Could become like Nazi Germany in 10 years?”

How about right now?!!!

Which party is currently supporting censorship and the silencing of its critics?

The democrats.

Which party is currently calling for the abolishment of the 2nd Amendment, and the removal of the peoples’ right to bear arms?

The democrats.

Whose party currently controls most of the media, while manipulating the propaganda which is disseminated to the public?

The democrats.

Which party is it which currently surrounded our capitol with barbed wire fence and is occupying the capitol with thousands of troops?

The democrats…, and establishment, RINO, republicans.

And that’s right now!!!

So, do you think you should maybe rethink the whole “Nazi” thing, Beto, or are you really aware of the truth and this is just an old Nazi propaganda maneuver?

I’m going with the Nazi propaganda maneuver.  

“O’Rourke compared Trump administration to the Third Reich during failed presidential run.”

Oh, really?

You “Beto” be kidding us, Beto!

“Democratic politician [Robert Francis] Beto [‘Beto’ is a common shortening of the name ‘Roberto,’ or ‘Robert.’] O’Rourke [Please note that Beto currently does not hold an office.] fretted Thursday on MSNBC that the United States could become Nazi Germany within 10 years, in spite of full Democratic control of the White House and Congress.” In spite of full Democrat control of the White House and Congress?!!!

Again…, how about as a result of?!!!

And, of course, MSNBC’s cast of liberal tools just ate these remarks up and didn’t challenge or question a thing.   

“On [MSDNC’s…, I mean MSNBC’s] ‘Morning Joe,’ O’Rourke likened efforts by former President Donald Trump and some Republican allies to overturn President Joe Biden’s election victory to the failed Beer Hall Putsch coup attempt by Adolf Hitler in 1923.”

Wow…, that’s a stretch, Beto. 

What democrat dweeb propaganda researcher came up with that little historic nugget for you?

So, what is this “Beer Hall Putsch coup” O’Rourke is referring to? 

On November 8–9, 1923, Adolf Hitler and the Nazi Party led a coalition group in an attempt to overthrow the German government. This attempted coup d’etat came to be known as the Beer Hall Putsch.

They began at the Bürgerbräu Keller, a beer hall in the Bavarian city of Munich. Hitler and the Nazi Party aimed to seize control of the state government, march on Berlin, and overthrow the German federal government. They sought to establish a new government to oversee the creation of a unified Greater German Reich. In this new government, citizenship would be based on race.

The putsch failed and Bavarian authorities prosecuted nine participants, including Hitler. Despite its failure, the leaders ultimately redefined the putsch as a heroic effort to save the nation.

Can I just remind you, Beto, that President Trump was the leader of the incumbent government at the time, and he could have legally invoked Martial law to address the fraudulent election if he desired to.

Your analogy here is completely fraudulent…, just like you and the rest of your democrat friends.   

‘“The proudest democracy on the face of the planet will become a memory if we do not fight for it right now,’ O’Rourke said.”

That’s the first bit of truth that’s dribbled out of your mouth, Beto, albeit you’re upside down regarding who has to fight, and who has to fight who!

It seems that O’Rourke has conveniently forgotten about the coup attempt, perpetrated on President Trump, by the democrats in Obama’s administration, including Obama and Biden themselves, along with elements of the FBI and the DOJ.  

But, then “the coup” was overlooked by the leftwing propaganda media, and instead the phony Russian collusion hoax was pushed on the people for well over two years!!!

We also saw the Mueller investigation…, a modern day version of the Nazi Gestapo, come up empty against President Trump…, but again, this was overlooked, and the Russian collusion narrative was allowed to continue regardless. 

‘“So, we should take no comfort in the fact that Joe Biden was successfully sworn in, no comfort in the fact that Congress seems to be operating as normal. This thing is on a roll right now.”

Believe me, Beto, millions of us are taking NO comfort that Illegitimate Joe was sworn in, or that the democrats control Congress.

No comfort at all.

“And if you look at the Beer Hall Putsch in Germany, 1923, it was 10 years later Hitler is chancellor. We are operating under the big lie right now in America. We’ve got to stop it. That’s up to all of us in this great democracy.’”

It is true that “We are operating under the big lie right now in America,” Beto.

THE BIG DEMOCRAT LIE!!!

And that, YES, “WE’VE GOT TO STOP IT!!!”  

“O’Rourke served three terms in the House of Representative before launching a failed bid to oust Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, in 2018. He used the liberal fame from his narrow defeat as a springboard to run for president, but he never gained traction and dropped out of the Democratic primary battle in October 2019.”

So, Beto gained liberal fame, and political momentum, by losing to Ted Cruz?

Interesting.

“He pushed Biden to consider Texas a swing state in 2020, but Trump defeated Biden by nearly six points there and improved on his showing with Hispanic voters from 2016.”

So, I guess, many Hispanic voters in Texas didn’t fall for the democrats’ playing the “race card…,” again, while The President played “the Trump card!”  

“O’Rourke often compared the Trump administration to the Third Reich during his failed presidential campaign.”

“O’Rourke slammed Cruz for joining in the Republican challenge of the Electoral College certification in January, which preceded the deadly Capitol riot by a mob of Trump supporters on Jan. 6.”

Hey, Beto…, do you realize that challenging the Electoral College certification is something completely within the republicans’ rights, and something the democrats have done after the elections of 2000, 2004, and 2016?   

“Cruz also echoed Trump’s unproven claims of widespread voter fraud in the 2020 election.”

Well, Beto…, the “unproven” part of 2020 election fraud is yet to be determined.  Most courts have refused to even hear the arguments or allow for an auditing of ballots.

‘“When Ted Cruz helps to incite that sedition, seeks to overturn a lawfully, legitimately, democratically decided election, he is just as culpable for the insurrection,’ O’Rourke said.”

Aren’t you glad you have MrEricksonRules here properly point out all of this hypocrisy and devilry?!

“Paging John Durham, paging John Durham.”

Where the hell are you, John Durham?!

Ronn Blitzer of Fox News reports that, “[General] Flynn slams Durham, Senate for slow probes: ‘We’re sick and tired of waiting’”

“Generally” speaking, General Flynn is right!

“[General] Flynn spoke out a day after his criminal case was dismissed.”

“Former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn expressed impatience over the drawn-out investigations of the Russia probe’s origins that are being carried out by John Durham and the Senate Judiciary Committee, criticizing both for not moving more swiftly.”

“In an interview with FOX Business’ ‘Mornings with Maria [Bartiromo],’ Flynn spoke out on the circumstances surrounding his criminal case — which spun out of the FBI’s Russia investigation — a day after Judge Emmet Sullivan dismissed it due to a pardon from President Trump.”

‘“We’re sick and tired of waiting,’ Flynn said about Durham’s probe.”

Yes, we are General.

First, they told us his report would be ready by late spring…, then by early summer…, then by late summer…, and then by early fall.

Then we were informed he didn’t want to release his report so close to the election.

Well, THE ELECTION IS OVER!!!

IT’S BEEN OVER THREE MONTHS NOW!!!

Please…, I’m dying to hear your new release date and you your latest excuse.

“Durham, the U.S. attorney for Connecticut, has been looking into the FBI’s actions in the early stages of their investigation of the Trump campaign for potential ties to Russian interference with the 2016 election.”

As a side note, Connecticut is really just one big suburb of New York City…, so, that’s where Durham is coming from.  It may help put his actions, or lack thereof, in a more understandable perspective. 

“A Department of Justice Inspector General report revealed that the FBI made misrepresentations to a court when seeking a warrant to investigate former Trump campaign adviser Carter Page, and documents released pertaining to the FBI’s investigation of Flynn cast doubt on their motives. Handwritten FBI notes indicated that there was an internal question as to whether the bureau interviewed Flynn in order to learn the truth or to get him to lie so authorities could pressure him with prosecution or termination.”

“Flynn was then charged and pleaded guilty to giving false statements regarding his communication with a Russian ambassador.”

This after threatening to destroy his son’s life, as well as his, if he didn’t plead guilty.

What can you say about these slimy, deep state, turds?

“His [Flynn’s] lawyers claimed that notes from former FBI official Peter Strzok showed that then-FBI Director James Comey downplayed Flynn’s calls during the presidential transition with Russia’s ambassador as ‘legit’ during a meeting where then-President Barack Obama and then-Vice President Joe Biden also weighed in.”

“Durham’s investigation of the Russia probe has yielded a guilty plea from former FBI attorney Kevin Clinesmith, who admitted to doctoring an email that was used to support an application to monitor Page, but so far there has been nothing in terms of accountability for anyone higher up in the FBI or DOJ.”

Clinesmith was obviously deemed expendable and got thrown under the bus. I’m sure he was compensated quite nicely to “take one for the team” and to keep his mouth shut. 

Clinesmith has since received the harshest of penalties…, probation.

What a joke.

Is there any question we have a two-tiered “justice” system?

‘“I would give a lot of room, space to Bill Barr,’ Flynn said about the attorney general, claiming that Barr has had to deal with a ‘swampy Department of Justice.’ He was less forgiving of Durham and the Senate Judiciary Committee, which has been conducting their own investigation.”

I wouldn’t be that empathetic to Bill Barr, General Flynn.  He may have been dealing with a “swampy” Department of (in)Justice, but he was the boss over there after all.

‘“If you’re going to do something, do it,’ Flynn said about the Senate committee. The committee has already held multiple hearings on the subject which have featured testimony from figures including former FBI director James Comey and former acting director Andrew McCabe. The hearings have so far failed to determine who knew what about the FBI’s failures, as the former leaders have claimed ignorance or a lack of memory when asked for names.”

That’s odd!

“McCabe accused Comey, McCabe, and former CIA director John Brennan of being ‘arrogant’ and ‘smug,’ and said they lied to the American people about the Russia investigation while the media enabled them.”

“As for his particular case, Flynn said it is clear what the FBI’s motive was.”

‘“We all know that this was an effort to get Flynn to get Trump,’ he said. Flynn accused government agencies of having ‘an anti-American bent,’ while praising President Trump for his accomplishments in the face of adversity.”

‘“Look at what President Trump has been able to do despite the kinds of assault that he’s been under,’ Flynn said.”

Agreed.

“Flynn also addressed President Barack Obama, who advised Trump during the transition period not to hire Flynn. Flynn claimed that Obama feared him because he wanted to take on Washington, D.C.’s ‘bloated’ bureaucracy.”

‘“He still should be afraid of me,’ Flynn said of Obama, although he did not explain why.”

“Flynn concluded by speaking out about November’s presidential election and was confident that when the legal challenges are done, President Trump will prevail.”

‘“If you ask Mike Flynn on a scale of one to 10 who’s going to be the next president, I’ll tell you that it’s a 10 that it’s going to be Donald Trump,’ he said.”

I had hoped you’d be right, General Flynn, but sadly the democrats managed to keep President Trump from getting a second term. It was imperative to them that he not be re-elected, by hook or by crook.  

All of these “investigations” (Spygate, Hillary’s email, the attempted “deep state” coup by the FBI and DOJ, Hunter Biden, election fraud, etc.) will now quietly die in the “swampy” quicksand of the corrupt “deep state,” democrat, beaurocracy…, with the help of their co-conspirators, the fake news, mainstream media.

Yes, my friends, it’s sad state of affairs…, and it doesn’t look to get better anytime soon.

Please get Lincoln’s name out of your dirty mouths!

How more disingenuous can you be than to use such a great and honorable man’s name as some sort of moral smoke screen for your corrupt and sexually deviant behavior?

The individuals associated with “The Lincoln Project” should all be facing charges for their disgusting actions or as conspirators to these disgusting actions.   

And who are we specifically talking about here?

That would be Lincoln Project co-founders Steve Schmidt, John Weaver, Rick Wilson, and George Conway.

The mainstream media, of course, has been ignoring, or burying, the story about their friends, while hosting them, dozens of times, on various shows to bad mouth and denegrate President Trump, his family, and his followers.

According to Brian Flood of Fox News, “The Associated Press published a scathing report about the embattled anti-Trump group The Lincoln Project on Thursday, but co-founder Rick Wilson [a purported republican strategist] oddly chalked it up to ‘another hit story from Trump world.’”

“The AP story headlined, ‘How a leading anti-Trump group ignored a crisis in its ranks,’ detailed a variety of issues at Wilson’s Lincoln Project. The group recently claimed it was ‘shocked’ last month when sexual harassment allegations surfaced against co-founder John Weaver, but the AP reported that the Lincoln Project was informed of ‘at least 10 specific allegations’ back in June 2020.”

Let’s be clear…, they were “shocked” that “sexual allegations surfaced,” not that there were “sexual allegations” against co-founder John Weaver.

‘“Despite the early warning, the group took no action against Weaver and pressed forward with its high-profile work,’ the AP reported.”

Early warning?

Early warning by who?

Please note that only lying, scumbag, democrats get any type of “early warning,” and then they’re still too arrogant and stupid to believe their deviant behavior is a problem.

“Weaver, a co-founder of the Lincoln Project, acknowledged last month in a statement to the website Axios that he had sent ‘inappropriate’ messages he ‘viewed as consensual, mutual conversations at the time.’”

Oh, really?

“However, The New York Times later ran a bombshell report about 21 young men who accused Weaver of misconduct, including who said he was 14 years old at the time.”

21 young men.

I guess your view of consensual, and even legal, is a little off, huh, Weaver?

May I suggest a new name for your “project?”

“As a result, the Lincoln Project finally denounced Weaver with a scathing statement and fellow co-founder George Conway was quickly dispatched to MSNBC to declare he ‘didn’t know John very well’ despite being business partners.”

Typical for these professional liars and mud slingers…, only after they have been caught dead to rights, do they throw someone under the bus and feign ignorance and outrage.       

And, Conway [a purported “conservative” lawyer]…, you are such a lying and sanctimonious piece of garbage.

Please spare us all your pathetic CYA routine.

How the hell you are married to Kellyanne Conway, I will never understand. Honestly Kellyanne, you can do so much better and you deserve so much better.

“But the allegations of overlooking online harassment aren’t the only troubling part of the AP’s report.”

There’s more?

‘“The harassment allegations and new revelations about spending practices raise significant questions about the management of one of the highest-profile antagonists of Trump. The revelations threaten the stature of not just the Lincoln Project but the broader coalition of establishment-oriented Republican groups [RINO groups] hoping to pool their resources to excise Trump from the party,’ the AP reported.”

“The Lincoln Project co-founder Rick Wilson oddly chalked a scathing Associated Press report up to ‘another hit story from Trump world.’”

“Trump World” being the world of decency, truth, and pro-America.   

‘“Since its creation, the Lincoln Project has raised $90 million. But only about a third of the money, roughly $27 million, directly paid for advertisements that aired on broadcast and cable, or appeared online, during the 2020 campaign, according to an analysis of campaign finance disclosures and data from the ad tracking firm Kantar/CMAG,’ the report continued. ‘That leaves tens of millions of dollars [$63 million to be exact, but who’s counting?] that went toward expenses like production costs, overhead — and exorbitant consulting fees collected by members of the group.’”

In fact, most of the money went back to themselves by way of the companies they owned.

“The AP reported that it’s ‘difficult to tell how much members of the group were paid’ because of the group’s strategy to “mask how much money they earned.’”

Hmmm…, now why would you want to go and do something like that?

“Co-founder Steve Schmidt told the AP that his anti-Trump group would ‘fully comply with the law’ and would be ‘delighted to open its books for audit immediately after the Trump campaign and all affiliated super PACs do so.’”

Ohhh…, we’re getting a little defensive and arrogant are we now, Schmidt?

And saying you and your pathetic group would now “fully comply with the law” is just another one of your lies in a long line of lies.

“On Thursday morning as the story hit, Schmidt’s colleague, fellow co-founder [Rick] Wilson, took to Twitter with his thoughts on the report.”

‘“Another day, another hit story from Trump world,’ he wrote.”

‘”I know y’all would like to ignore the mounting evidence of Trump ordering a murderous mob to attack the Capitol, but you can’t.’”

Excuse me, but isn’t “y’all” part of the “rube” lexicon?

Just sayin’.

“It’s unclear why Wilson feels that the reputable Associated Press is part of whatever he considers ‘Trump World,’ but critics quickly mocked his response.”

“Wilson has maintained in recent weeks that he had no knowledge of the extent of Weaver’s predatory behavior, which included sexual overtures to a 14-year-old boy.”

Have any of these guys been to Jeffrey Epstein’s “Pedo Island?”

I’m gonna go out on a limb and guess, yes.

It appears that Wilson is choosing the “Comey defense.”  

Oh, and wasn’t it you, Wilson, who was “yucking” it up at the expense of President Trump, Secretary Pompeo, and Trump supporters in general on one of the fake news, democrat propaganda, shows?

Ian Schwartz for the RealClear Politics website reported that, “CNN’s Don Lemon Cracks Up As Rick Wilson, Wajahat Ali Trash Trump Supporters As Ignorant Rubes.”

“On Don Lemon’s CNN show Saturday, Rick Wilson and Wajahat Ali react to Mike Pompeo curing and accusing an NPR host of not knowing where Ukraine is after a testy interview.”

Oh…, just another “testy” interview with a Trump official.

That’s odd.

“Wilson said this is something that appeals to Trump ‘rubes’ and makes them feel like Trump is the smart one and ‘y’all elites are dumb.’ The two then said Trump supporters aren’t familiar with geography, spelling, reading, knowing other countries, and drinking coffee.”

Please note that, “A ‘rube’ is defined as a country bumpkin or an inexperienced, unsophisticated person.”

I know, according these liberal geniuses, I’m just a “rube,” but what does “drinking coffee” have to do with anything?

‘“He’s [Pompeo’s] just trying to demean her [the NPR host], and obviously it’s false. He also knows that deep in his heart that Donald Trump couldn’t find Ukraine on the map if you had the letter ‘U’ and the picture of an actual, physical crane next to it,’ Wilson said.”

‘“He knows that this is an administration defined by ignorance of the world,’ Wilson said as Lemon’s face hit the desk. ‘That’s partly him playing to their base and playing to their audience of the credulous boom rube demo that backs Donald Trump that wants to think that (in Southern accent) Donald Trump is the smart one and y’all elitists are dumb.’”

‘“You elitists with your geography and your maps and your spelling,’ Ali chimed in.”

‘“Your math and your reading,’ Wilson continued.”

‘“Yeah, your reading, your geography, knowing other countries, sipping your latte,’ Ali said.”

‘“All those lines on the map,’ Wilson said.”

‘“Only those elitists know where Ukraine is,’ Ali finished.”

Okay…, we get it…, are you about through now?

These “oh so wise,” arrogant, liberal, talking heads, obviously have a very poor opinion of the intelligence of Trump supporters…, but I’m quite confident in saying that:

Most Trump supporters recognize that intentionally misleading the American people is wrong, Wilson.  

Most Trump supporters recognize that lying is wrong, Wilson.   

Most Trump supporters recognize that cheating is wrong, Wilson.

Most Trump supporters recognize that stealing is wrong, Wilson.  

Most Trump supporters recognize that sexually harassing young men and boys is wrong, Wilson.  

Just sayin’.

This “rube” thinks y’all Lincoln Project boys need an attitude adjustment!

The “Fredo” awards!

Yes, welcome ladies and gentlemen to the first annual “Fredo” Awards!

We all know how much liberal elitists like giving each other awards and receiving awards, so I thought I would hand out some awards of my own that these liberal losers have actually earned. 

If you’re not familiar with the term, what exactly does being a “Fredo” refer to?

According to the Urban Dictionary website, “In proper application referring to someone as a ‘Fredo’ means they are just a dumb [a$$] loser like ‘The Godfather’ movie character,” who was the weak and naïve son and brother.

There you have it!

So, without any further adieu…, on to the awards!

First off, the Honorary “Fredo” Awards.

Our first Honorary “Fredo” Awards go to the award’s namesakes, New York Governor Andrew “Fredo Sr.” Cuomo, and his brother, host of the CNN show, “Cuomo Prime Time,” Chris “Fredo Jr.” Cuomo.  

Without these two liberal turds, the “Fredo” awards would not have been possible.  

Our next award, and our first category award, goes to The Worst Liberal Politician in a Leading Role.

This was an extremely tough category to award.  There were so many worthy recipients.  But, in the end, one liberal politician did manage to stand out above the rest…, and that liberal politician is Congresswoman and Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi!

Her incessant lying and obnoxious partisan idiocy seemingly has no limits.

The next award goes to The Worst Liberal Politician in a Supporting Role.

Again, there were so many scumbags worthy of consideration here.  But, the worst liberal, and sleaziest democrat, in a Supporting Role has to go to Congressman Adam Schiff.

Like his fearless leader, Nancy Pelosi, Schiff’s continual ability to lie without any apparent conscious, and his ability to shamelessly drive fictitious narratives are unequalled.   

Our next award goes to The Worst Costume Design for a Liberal Politician.

The winner of this award really didn’t have any serious challengers.

The winner of the worst costume design for a liberal politician goes to Congresswoman Frederica Smith Wilson of Florida!

Our next award goes to The Worst Adapted Testimony for a Liberal Politician.

The winner of this award becomes our first two-time winner.  He wins his second award based on his adaptation of President Trump’s call with Volodymyr Zelensky, the then-newly elected Ukrainian leader.  His “adaptation” was later debunked, however, when it was learned there was an actual transcription of the call.  Ooops!  

So, the winner of the worst adapted testimony by a liberal politician goes to California Congressman, Adam Schiff!

Our next award is the Worst Original Story (hoax) by a liberal politician.

The worst original story (hoax) by a liberal politician has to refer to the whole “Russia collusion” hoax.  This hoax unabashedly proclaimed that President Trump was an actual Russian spy and a puppet for Russian President, Vladimir Putin. We heard nightly, for over two years how everyone had proof of this…, but in the end, there was no proof to be found, and no retractions or apologies either.

There were really too many democrats involved in this hoax to award individual awards.  These included a President, a Vice President, various Cabinet secretaries, various executive branch officers, members of the DOJ and the FBI, and, of course, the co-conspiratorial mainstream media, just to get the party started. 

Accepting this award on behalf of all the treasonous democrat vermin involved in this hoax (and attempted coup), is Rachel Maddow, the clueless MSNBC commentator who willfully and joyfully perpetrated this big lie on a nightly basis.   

The next award is for the Worst Speech and Press Briefing Editing.

During the course of the 2020 presidential election campaign, it became common knowledge that Joe Biden utilized a teleprompter for almost everything he said and, even then, he usually managed to stick his foot in his mouth.  That, coupled with the cherry picking of “friendly” questions, and the outright refusal to even answer other questions, earned these two individuals their awards.

This award for Worst Speech and Press Briefing Editing goes to Jennifer O’Malley Dillon, Biden’s Campaign Manager, and Joe Biden himself.

The next award is for The Worst News Editing, by a liberal organization, in a supporting role.

We are awarding multiple awards in this category.

Those organizations receiving awards for their anti-American censorship and propaganda by omission are: CNN, MSNBC, Facebook, Twitter and Google.

Congratulations for lowering our news and social media to levels normally seen in Communist China, Russia, North Korea, Venezuela and Cuba.

Our next award is for The Most Clueless Liberal in a supporting role.

Again, there was no shortage of liberals in consideration here, but one individual definitely stood out above the crowd!

This clueless liberal torpedoed thousands of good paying Amazon jobs in her city, wants our country to abandon all civilized progress in the name of climate change, and is campaigning to turn our country into a socialist nightmare.

Taking all of this into consideration, the award for The Most Clueless Liberal in a supporting role can only go to Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.

 

As you can see, Ms. Ocasio-Cortez is so clueless, she is happy about winning this award!

Our next award is for The Biggest Liberal Meathead in a supporting Role.  

One “Fredo” nominee clearly stood out for this award.  It was actually created especially for him!  

The award for The Biggest Liberal Meathead in a supporting Role goes to Californian Congressman Eric Swalwell!

A member of the “Russian collusion hoax club,” Swalwell, we have now learned, carried on about Russian influences in our government, all while he was cavorting around with his own little China doll spy, Christine Fang! You just can’t make this stuff up. I’m sure it was a big surprise to his wife as well. Ouch!

Swalwell even entered the race for president. His campaign lasted about ten minutes. I’m sure Fang encouraged Swalwell and was his driving force!

I can just hear her now…, “Oh, Eric, I love you…, the people love you…, they need a big strong leader like you, Eric…, you must run for president…, you owe it to the American people…, they need you!”  

A truer “meathead” you just couldn’t find!

And finally, the “Fredos” inaugural Lifetime Achievement award goes to Seth Myers, host of “Late Night with Seth Myers.”

Seth Myers chose to ruin his show and dedicate at least 10 minutes a night to bashing presidential candidate Donald Trump, and then he beat Hillary Clinton anyway!

We have all heard of the term “influencer.”  Seth Myers may now best be known as an “anti-influencer,” since all of his efforts obviously had no effect on the election, and quite possibly the opposite of his desired effect! 

Then, having learned nothing from his “influencer” failure, he continued to bash President Trump for another four years on a nightly basis!    

President Trump then won again, only to have the election stolen from him.   

Well, that wraps-up our award ceremony.

I hope you enjoyed the First Annual “Fredo” Awards! 

I know I enjoyed bringing them to you.

I hope to see you next year for the presentations of the Second Annual “Fredo” Awards!

Thank you, MrEricksonRules.

Does the FBI and the DOJ pursue anything anymore if it isn’t related to President Trump?

We had the whole “Spygate” operation of the Obama administration illegally spying on the Trump campaign and then the Trump presidency.

Then we had the whole Russian collusion hoax, which was launched by the DOJ and the FBI, and then perpetuated by the democrats and the fake news mainstream media for over two years!  

Then we had Jeffrey Epstein, who was either silenced or allowed to commit suicide, in order to protect his influential fellow pedophiles.  

Then we had the impeachment hoax of President Trump, who was accused of doing exactly what former vice president Joe Biden actually did (a quid pro quo arrangement with The Ukraine).

Then we had the Hunter Biden “funny money” cases with The Ukraine, China, and Russia, which were smothered by the DOJ, the FBI, and the media, including social media.      

And now we have election “irregularities” and questionable voting machine software manipulation, in which the usual partners in crime ar all choosing to look the other way.   

It is sooo painfully obvious now that the DOJ and the FBI are in the back pockets of the democrats.

It is sooo obvious that you can expect that no one will go to jail over any of this, and no one will even be charged with anything over any of this.

The fix is in, my friends.   

The foxes, or better said the rats, are in charge of the hen house.

In the case of the Epstein investigation, those in danger of being implicated as pedophiles, or somehow assisting in the allowance of this behavior, are all liberals, democrats, establishment RINOs, politicians, or royals, I might add, which include well-known heads of state and successful businessmen, as well as at least one high-powered lawyer, and science luminaries.  Some of them have already been accused of participation in Epstein’s alleged sex trafficking ring.

Les Wexner, the billionaire behind U.S. fashion retailer L Brands, which owns Victoria’s Secret.

French modeling agent Jean-Luc Brunel became a member of Epstein’s inner circle in the early 2000s. Brunel “fed” Epstein young girls from “poor backgrounds,” and “lured” them in with “a promise of making good money.” Instead, Brunel would “farm them out to his friends,” including Epstein, “for sexual purposes.”

Prince Andrew, the Duke of York.

Alan Dershowitz, a high-powered lawyer and Harvard Law professor who helped broker a deal with the U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of Florida, Alexander Acosta. Before the FBI’s proposed indictment could be presented to a grand jury, Epstein signed a seriously lenient non-prosecution agreement, pleading guilty to a single count of solicitation of a minor in exchange for a cushy 13-month sentence.

Billionaire power couple Glenn Dubin and Eva Andersson-Dubin.

Former President Bill Clinton and Epstein did quite a bit of jet setting on the “Lolita Express,” the press nickname for Epstein’s private Boeing 727 jet.

Former democratic Senate Majority Leader George Mitchell.

Former New Mexico Governor Bill Richardson.

Media mogul, billionaire, and former owner of the New York Daily News and the Atlantic, Mort Zuckerman.

Woody Allen.

Attorney General William Barr once also served as counsel at Kirkland and Ellis, the law firm that represented Epstein for his obscenely lenient 2008 plea deal.  This explains a lot.

Ken Starr.  The former independent counsel who investigated President Clinton, Starr served on Epstein’s all-star legal team in 2008, helping to strike a deal that landed Epstein in jail for only 13 months, with work release six days a week. In 2015, Starr dryly defended his work for Epstein: “I was happy to respond to the needs of a client of the firm.”

Stephen Hawking. In addition to his time on “pedophile island,” Hawking took a boat cruise and submarine tour funded by Epstein. According to the Telegraph, Epstein “paid for the submarine to be modified for Professor Hawking, who had never been underwater before.”

According to flight logs of Epstein’s plane, Harvard psychology professor Steven Pinker hitched a ride on the “Lolita Express” in 2002.

Other notable people with ties to Epstein are Harvey Weinstein, Alec Baldwin, and Ted Kennedy.

Guest lists for dinners at his Manhattan townhouse also give a picture of his influence: In 2010, a dinner for Prince Andrew included Katie Couric, George Stephanopoulos, Chelsea Handler, and Woody Allen.

Vicky Ward, the journalist who wrote the 2003 Vanity Fair profile of Epstein, told Slate that “You got the feeling that his friends weren’t real friends — he owned them — that he was the kind of man who collected information about people and then used it over them.” Ward has also offered a more scathing assessment, saying, “What is so amazing to me is how his entire social circle knew about this and just blithely overlooked it … all mentioned the girls, as an aside.”

Thanks to Adam K. Raymond and Matt Stieb from New York Magazine’s Intelligencer and Amelia McDonell-Parry for Rolling Stone Magazine for their reporting on Epstein’s relationships.

According to James Hill of Good Morning America , “Victims’ rights lawyers who have been battling the U.S. Department of Justice for a dozen years over the controversial ‘sweetheart deal’ reached by federal prosecutors in Florida with convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein are blasting the department’s long-awaited review of the deal as ‘offensive’ and a ‘whitewash.’”

Like I said, could we reasonably expect anything else from the Department of in-Justice?

‘“I think, frankly, what we got was an effort to paper over what happened,’ said Paul Cassell, a former federal judge who now represents Epstein accusers. ‘I think they’re trying to put the most favorable light on what’s clearly misconduct on the part of their attorneys.’”

“A 350-page report from the DOJ’s Office of Professional Responsibility (OPR), which was made public Thursday, determined none of the five federal prosecutors who were deeply involved in the Epstein investigation committed professional misconduct or violated any clear and unambiguous rules when they reached the deal without informing or consulting with victims.”

Of course not.

“Instead, the OPR report faulted former Labor Secretary Alexander Acosta, then the U.S. Attorney in Miami, for exhibiting ‘poor judgment’ in deciding to resolve the Epstein case through a non-prosecution agreement and in failing to make certain the alleged victims were notified in advance of Epstein’s guilty plea in state court that ended the federal investigation.”

‘“They just say he used poor judgment, and that’s their way of basically letting everyone off the hook while offering some sort of an olive branch to the victims that we acknowledge weren’t treated perfectly,’ said Brad Edwards, who sued the DOJ in 2008 on behalf of Epstein accusers, seeking to invalidate the once-secret deal. ‘But nobody really did anything wrong. It’s really offensive. It’s hurtful.’”

“Jena-Lisa Jones, who has alleged Epstein sexually abused her when she was just 14, called the Justice Department’s conclusions ‘like another slap in the face’ to victims.”

Better a “slap in the face” to you, Ms. Jones, than any harm come to any of their rich and powerful pedophile friends.

‘“Poor judgment is cheating on a spelling test or speeding five miles over the speed limit. That would be poor judgment to me,’ Jones said after attending a four-hour government briefing on the report’s findings at the FBI office in Miami. ‘I honestly don’t think that anybody will take responsibility in any sense, in any shape or form in the way that they actually should as adults.’”

The funny thing is that she thought anyone would!

“The OPR report, which took 22 months to complete, is not likely to be the last word on the Florida prosecutors’ treatment of Epstein, who was arrested last year by federal authorities in New York and then died while in custody in a Manhattan detention center.”

22 months to complete the report!

This is so typical of their modus operandi (MO), regarding the DOJ and the FBI.  Delay, delay, delay.  Excuse, excuse, excuse.  Then, Ignore, ignore, ignore.     

“Sen. Ben Sasse, R-Neb., who requested the department review after the Miami Herald’s in-depth reports on the Epstein case were published in late 2018, harshly criticized OPR’s conclusions and vowed to keep investigating what he labeled a ‘disgusting failure.’”

‘“Letting a well-connected billionaire get away with child rape and international sex trafficking isn’t “poor judgment” — it is a disgusting failure. Americans ought to be enraged,’ said the senator, chairman of the Senate Judiciary Oversight Subcommittee. ‘Jeffrey Epstein should be rotting behind bars today, but the Justice Department failed Epstein’s victims at every turn.’”

Not to mention a slew of his well connected cohorts!

‘“OPR might have finished its report, but we have an obligation to make sure this never happens again,’ Sasse said in a statement.”

Whatever you say, Senator Sass.

“Authorities in New York, meanwhile, have vowed to continue investigating anyone who may have conspired with Epstein or assisted him in the commission of his alleged crimes. Earlier this year, Manhattan prosecutors charged Epstein’s former girlfriend and close associate, Ghislaine Maxwell, with helping to facilitate and, in some cases, participating in Epstein’s crimes against three minor girls in the mid-1990s. Maxwell pleaded not guilty and has long denied any knowledge of Epstein’s alleged sex-trafficking. Her trial is scheduled for next summer.”

Oh goody!  More investigations that will end up being big wastes of time. 

“And next month, lawyers Edwards and Cassell will argue before the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals in Atlanta that the Epstein deal, which also conferred federal immunity to any potential co-conspirators, should be rescinded because it was reached in violation of the federal Crime Victims’ Rights Act.”

Ah, yes…, that all important “federal immunity!”

You can ask Hillary’s friends about that as well.

“Villafaña [former federal case prosecutor Marie Villafaña] told OPR that she ‘could not seem to get [her supervisors] to understand the seriousness of Epstein’s behavior and the fact that he was probably continuing to commit the behavior, and that there was a need to move with necessary speed.’”

Oh, they understood alright.

“Much has been made over the years of Epstein employing a ‘dream team’ of highly skilled lawyers to help persuade federal prosecutors to drop their investigation. Epstein’s advocates included the famed Harvard law professor Alan Dershowitz and former U.S. Solicitor General Ken Starr, best known for his role as the independent counsel in the Whitewater investigation, which eventually led to the impeachment of former President Bill Clinton.”

“During the negotiations over the deal, Epstein supplemented his team with Starr and Jay Lefkowitz, who had served in the administrations of former Presidents George H.W. Bush and George W. Bush. Lefkowitz and Starr had each worked previously with Acosta when he was a junior associate at the law firm of Kirkland & Ellis. Acosta met personally with Lefkowitz and Starr after the non-prosecution agreement was signed but while Epstein’s attorneys were pursuing further review of the deal’s terms at higher levels of the Justice Department.”

Justin Vallejo for The Independent writes that, “Swaths of country believe Democratic Party is a front for a pedophile ring.”

You can consider me a part of that “swath,” Mr. Vallejo.

Donald Trump is exactly the kind of person George Washington and the founding fathers envisioned as a President.

Yes…, Donald Trump is exactly the kind of person George Washington and the founding fathers envisioned as a President or as a member of Congress. 

The founding fathers envisioned successful and accomplished people sacrificing their time, and serving a term or two in government for the good of their country, before returning back to private life and letting another citizen step forward for the good of the country.

The founding fathers envisioned people who had gained some sort of expertise, knowledge, and wisdom in their private ventures, and then putting their experience and talent to work for our country. 

The founding fathers did not envision lifelong politicians who would bring nothing to the table other than their ability to get elected somehow.

The founding fathers did not envision individuals staying 20 years, 30 years, 40 years, or even longer in office, and leaving politics significantly richer than when they came.

Like George Washington, Donald Trump was not a politician.  Like George Washington, he was a reluctant servant, who left a comfortable life to do what felt needed to be done for the American people and the country.

Our founding fathers, truly, were wise men.

They established a form of government never before seen in this world.

A government of the people, by the people, for the people.

From the Declaration of Independence:

“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.–That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, –That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.”

Nothing like this had ever been established before.

These founding fathers were undoubtedly great men.

Although I have said that being a great man, sometimes, only requires you to speak the truth and live up to the truth…, like the founding fathers, Abraham Lincoln, and Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

Here are some quotes from our founding fathers I feel are especially notable”  

“I have lived, Sir, a long time, and the longer I live, the more convincing proofs I see of this truth – that god governs in the affairs of men. And if a sparrow cannot fall to the ground without his notice, is it probable that an empire can rise without his aid?” – Benjamin Franklin

“To argue with a person who has renounced the use of reason is like administering medicine to the dead.” – Thomas Paine

“Government is instituted for the common good; for the protection, safety, prosperity, and happiness of the people; and not for profit, honor, or private interest of any one man, family, or class of men; therefore, the people alone have an incontestable, unalienable, and indefeasible right to institute government; and to reform, alter, or totally change the same, when their protection, safety, prosperity, and happiness require it.” – John Adams

“A fondness for power is implanted, in most men, and it is natural to abuse it, when acquired.” – Thomas Jefferson

“However [political parties] may now and then answer popular ends, they are likely in the course of time and things, to become potent engines, by which cunning, ambitious, and unprincipled men will be enabled to subvert the power of the people and to usurp for themselves the reins of government, destroying afterwards the very engines which have lifted them to unjust dominion….The alternate domination of one faction over another, sharpened by the spirit of revenge, natural to party dissension, which in different ages and countries has perpetrated the most horrid enormities, is itself a frightful despotism.” – George Washington

“When the people fear their government, there is tyranny; when the government fears the people, there is liberty.” – Thomas Jefferson

“Experience hath shown, that even under the best forms of government those entrusted with power have, in time, and by slow operations, perverted it into tyranny.” – Thomas Jefferson

“If freedom of speech is taken away, then dumb and silent we may be led, like sheep to the slaughter.” –  George Washington

“Guard against the impostures of pretended patriotism.” – George Washington

Thomas R. Pickering and James Stoutenberg of The New York Times notes that, “In September 1796, George Washington, weary of partisan combat just eight years after the ratification of the Constitution and the founding of the nation, wrote a farewell address explaining why he would not seek a third term. His message is worth remembering in our current political moment.”

“In elaborate and thoughtful prose, Washington raised red flags about disunity, false patriotism, special interests, extreme partisanship, fake news, the national debt, foreign alliances and foreign hatreds. With uncanny foresight, he warned that the most serious threat to our democracy might come from disunity within the country rather than interference from outside. And he foresaw the possibility of foreign influence over our political system and the rise of a president whose ego and avarice would transcend the national interest, raising the threat of despotism.”

“Washington certainly had great confidence, but in his address he didn’t brag about his accomplishments. On the contrary, he beseeched the Almighty to soften the impact of his errors and expressed hopes that the country would forgive them.”

“He cautioned against both overly friendly alliances (lest another country’s interests and wars become our own) and excessive hatreds (lest we provoke unnecessary conflict and war with others).”

“Some of Washington’s most prescient warnings were about the dangers of factionalism. He wrote that should one group, ‘sharpened by the spirit of revenge,’ gain domination over another, the result could be ‘a more formal and permanent despotism.’ The despot’s rise would be fueled by ‘disorders and miseries’ that would gradually push citizens ‘to seek security and repose in the absolute power of an individual.’”

“As if envisioning the political tribalism and 24/7 cable news culture of today, he urged political leaders to restrain ‘the continual mischiefs’ of political parties. The ‘spirit of party,’ he wrote, ‘serves always to distract the public councils and enfeeble the public administration. It agitates the community with ill-founded jealousies and false alarms, kindles the animosity of one part against another, foments occasionally riot and insurrection.’”

“And then he arrived at one of his greatest concerns: The ways in which hyperpartisanship could open the door ‘to foreign influence and corruption, which find a facilitated access to the government itself through the channels of party passions. Thus, the policy and the will of one country are subjected to the policy and will of another.’”

“Since 1893, a senator has read the farewell address on the floor of the Senate every year on Washington’s Birthday, alternating annually by political party. Bluntly speaking, it’s become little more than an exercise in bipartisan lip service. The House of Representatives stopped reading it decades ago. This was, at least, a form of honesty. Clearly no one was listening anymore.”

“Washington’s goal was to ensure that the young country became stable enough to withstand the threats to liberty and freedom he saw on the horizon — a horizon that has now stretched 220 years into the future. We can never say he didn’t warn us.”

President Washington was definitely uncanny in his predictions for the future.

The funny thing about this article is that The New York Times tries sell us that the republicans and President Trump are the problems Washington was talking about in his farewell address and not the democrats and themselves!

“Cheaters, cheaters, pumpkin eaters!”

I remember this rhyme from when I was a kid.

Yes, it is childish, but, whatever, I’m rolling with it!  

During Joe Biden’s October 24th appearance on the progressive podcast “Pod Save America,” Biden said, “We’re in a situation where we have put together, and you guys did it for our administration, President Obama’s administration before this, we have put together I think the most extensive and inclusive voter fraud organization in the history of American politics.”

In this instance, I believe you Sleepy Joe!

It’s amazing the information you can get out of Joe Biden if you just let him talk without the aid of a teleprompter. 

So, now that we have that established…, according to the Brennan Center for Justice, “It is important to protect the integrity of our elections. But we must be careful not to undermine free and fair access to the ballot in the name of preventing phantom voter fraud.”

“Politicians at all levels of government have repeatedly, and falsely, claimed the 2016 and 2018 elections were marred by millions of people voting illegally. However, extensive research reveals that fraud is very rare, voter impersonation is virtually nonexistent, and many instances of alleged fraud are, in fact, mistakes by voters or administrators. The same is true for mail ballots, which are secure and essential to holding a safe election amid the coronavirus pandemic.”

“The Brennan Center’s seminal report, ‘The Truth About Voter Fraud,’ conclusively demonstrated that most allegations of fraud turn out to be baseless and that most of the few remaining allegations reveal irregularities and other forms of election misconduct.”

Of course they are.  

Have you read the MrEricksonRule’s Center for Justice report that brings to light massive democrat election fraud?

It carries about as much weight as this piece of Brennan Center propaganda.

Supposedly, The Brennan Center for Justice at the New York University Law School is a bipartisan law and public policy institute seen as liberal or progressive in its policy positions and views. The organization is named after Supreme Court Justice William J. Brennan.

The Brennan Center’s own website says, “The Brennan Center is equal parts think tank, public interest law firm and advocacy organization. The Brennan Center serves as a generator of legal theory and as an expert on democracy reform, equipping and empowering journalists, attorneys, civic engagement organizations, and other national partners to achieve immediate wins and make long-term strides toward an inclusive and just democracy.”

Their form of “an inclusive and just democracy” does not include people who don’t think like they do, and “just democracy” is whatever they say it is…, and you better not question them.  

What a couple of good little Nazis!

If you visit the Brennan Center’s website, it will become apparent quite quickly that they oppose President Trump and are proactive in their attacks on him and his administration.   

It would not surprise me at all if these people were a driving force behind many of the issues we find ourselves having with this election.

It’s amazing how many of these “centers” exist in our country, whose soul intention is destroying our country as we know it.     

I’ve heard many “talking heads” representing the democrats, and many hosts and contributors to many shows on the fake news and liberal propaganda media say:

“There may be some instances of voter fraud, but not enough to matter.”

“There may be some cases voter fraud, but not enough to make a difference in the outcome.”

“The rate of voter fraud is within acceptable ranges.”

There is a huge difference between “voter fraud” on a case by case instance, and large scale “ballot fraud” or large scale “ballot data dumps,” “intentional voting machine software manipulation,” and overall “election fraud.”

 The 2020 election cannot be compared to prior elections. 

In the 2020 election, democrats were prepared to pull out all the stops if needed, and do whatever it took to defeat President Trump.

That is precisely why counts were halted in battleground states on election night, after it was determined President Trump was on track to win these states.

This gave the democrats time to produce enough votes, electronically, or physically, to overtake President Trump’s vote totals, when the counting recommenced.  

It was quite obvious to me, and I will go to my grave believing this was the case.

Whether or not The President’s legal team is able to actually gain access to the system and the physical ballots, in order to be able to document this cheating and bring it to light is another story.

If they really believe the election was fair and square, and they are interested in making sure our elections are fair and square, Joe Biden, his campaign, and the democrats should welcome validation of this election’s integrity, not ignore it, fight it, or run from it.

Nobody wants their vote to be disqualified by an opposing illegitimate vote.

Put your hand up if you’re willing to sacrifice your vote to a cheater.

Hmmm…, I’m not seeing any hands out there.

And it doesn’t make any difference if the cheating is on a small scale or a large scale.

Cheating is cheating.

It’s the year 2020 ladies and gentlemen.  We are more than capable of instituting an election system which would safeguard us from virtually all of the fraud issues, if that’s what our politicians (and I’m referring mainly to the democrats) wanted.

Biden and the democrats are not going to be able effectively govern the country if tens of millions of Americans believe Biden is an illegitimate president who got into office by way of a rigged and stolen election.     

Hopefully, we won’t be forced to deal with that situation.
