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.

Joe’s illegitimate…, and he’s a liar too!

Let’s take a look into Joe’s primetime revisionist history address!  

Caitlin McFall of Fox News reports, “In his first primetime address to the nation Thursday night, President Biden lobbed barely concealed criticism at former President Trump for his handling of the coronavirus pandemic.”

Let’s take a listen…, this oughta be good!

‘“A year ago, we were hit with a virus that was met with silence and spread unchecked, denials for days, weeks then months — that led to more deaths, more infections, more stress, and more loneliness,’ the president said. ‘We lost faith in whether our government and our democracy can deliver on really hard things for the American people.’”

Oh, really?

So, that’s how you remember it, Joe?

I seem to remember the circumstances differently.

I remember Nancy Pelosi downplaying the virus and inviting people to get out and visit Chinatown (you can’t make this stuff up) in her wonderful city of San Francisco.

Then we had New York’s Mayor, Bill DeBlasio, saying, “If you’re not sick, you should be going about your life,” while encouraging people to patronize restaurants in the city.

Don’t you recall that, Joe?

Let’s go back to March 12 of 2020, a year ago, and see what Tristan Justice of The Federalist, an on-line magazine, had to say.  

“Democratic presidential frontrunner Joe Biden complained Thursday about President Donald Trump calling the Wuhan coronavirus ‘a foreign virus’ in Wednesday’s Oval Office address.”

Well, wasn’t it?

Just sayin’.

‘“Labeling COVID-19 a foreign virus does not displace the accountability for the misjudgements that have taken place so far by the Trump administration,’ Biden said. ‘The [Wuhan] coronavirus does not discriminate based on national origin, race, gender, or zip code.’”

Exactly what “misjudgements,” Joe?

“In Wednesday night’s primetime White House address announcing new travel restrictions to Europe, Trump pointed out that the novel coronavirus wreaking havoc on global public health and stock markets around the world began in China, accurately referring to it as a ‘foreign virus.’”

Which it is.

“Many on the left, however, have been quick to decry the label as ‘racist’ and ‘xenophobic,’ although it’s common practice to identify a new disease with the site of its first outbreak, such as the West Nile virus and Spanish Flu.”

So, “the left” was really more concerned the verbal semantics than with the virus itself.  

“In this case, however, it is even more important to identify the new coronavirus with where it originated in the Chinese city of Wuhan, as the Chinese government attempted to cover up warnings and brushed off the threat of its severity, giving rise to what the World Health Organization has now declared a global pandemic.”

“On Thursday, Biden also criticized the administration’s decision to implement a near-total European travel ban recommended by White House public health advisors, with an exception for the United Kingdom.”

‘“Banning all travel from Europe or any other part of the world may slow it, but…it will not stop it,’ Biden warned.”

So, if Biden had been president, he wouldn’t have banned travel to and from Europe?

“In January, Biden also criticized as ‘xenophobic’ the administration’s travel ban to China as the outbreak began to worsen, although it was instrumental in preventing an outbreak in the United States much sooner.”

‘“This is no time for Donald Trump’s record of hysteria and xenophobia,’ Biden said during an Iowa campaign event.”

So, if Biden had been president at the time, he wouldn’t have even banned travel to and from China?  

“In response to Biden’s Thursday press conference, the Trump campaign put out a statement reminding the public of Biden’s opposition to the China travel ban.”

‘“Just weeks ago, he [Biden] was openly critical of President Trump’s early move to restrict travel from China to the United States in response to the coronavirus – a decision which medical experts agree helped impede the spread of the virus to this country,’ Trump Communications Director Tim Murtaugh said. ‘President Trump acted early and decisively and has put the United States on stronger footing than other nations.’”

So, it really appears the only “misjudgements” that were made early on were by you and your democrat friend, Joe, not President Trump.

McFall continues by saying, “Without ever mentioning Trump by name, Biden highlighted issues over which his predecessor has been criticized, like the importance of wearing a mask and ‘listening to the science’ in deciding how to best reopen the economy.”

So, you claim you’re “listening to the science” regarding the reopening of schools?

Interesting.   

‘“A mask, the easiest thing to do to save lives, sometimes it divides us, states pit it against one another instead of working with each other,’ Biden noted, nodding to the recent decision by Republican-led states to lift coronavirus restrictions, including mask mandates.”

“Biden encouraged Americans to listen to the advice issued by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in continuing to wear masks ‘to save lives.’”

“Trump’s refusal to wear a mask until several months into the pandemic was an issue Biden was critical of throughout the presidential race.”

“Biden called Dr. Anthony Fauci ‘one of the most distinguished and trusted voices in the world.’ The comment was a contrast to those made by Trump, who was sometimes a sharp critic of Fauci, the top doctor on his White House Coronavirus Task Force.”

Please recall that, initially, on March 8, 2020, Dr. Fauci said, “There’s no reason to be walking around with a mask.”

Maybe that’s why President Trump didn’t feel the need to wear a mask at the time?

He was only “following the science” at the time, and Dr. Fauci’s recommendations.

“Biden suggested Americans were not getting honesty from Trump, reflecting on a visit he made to a small business owner in Philadelphia last summer.”

‘“Looking me right in the eye, she said, “I just want the truth,”’ he said, describing what the business owner said she needed most to help her through the pandemic.”

‘“My fellow Americans, you’re owed nothing less than the truth,’ Biden added.”

Well, then why aren’t you giving us the truth, Joe?

“He noted that when he entered office, only 8 percent of people age 65 and up had received their first vaccine shot, contrasting that with the numbers who have gotten the vaccine under his presidency.”

Could it be because, “The vaccines had only recently been made available when Biden took office Jan. 20?”

“But defenders of President Trump have noted that Operation Warp Speed — the Trump administration’s effort to help develop coronavirus vaccines — helped produced results in less than a year, a timeframe considered fast for vaccine development.”

Not just considered “fast,” but considered impossible by many doctors and experts throughout 2020.

According to Sandy Cohen for UCLA Health [UCLA Health is among the most comprehensive and advanced health care systems in the world, comprised of multiple hospitals and medical centers in the Los Angeles area], in December of 2020, “The COVID-19 vaccines coming soon to the United States and already approved in the U.K. and Canada are the fastest vaccines ever created.”

“In a remarkable achievement of medical science, we’ve gone from identifying a new pathogen — the novel coronavirus known as SARS-CoV-2 — to discovering an immune response against it to developing and testing a safe and effective vaccine for it in less than 12 months.”

“Previously, the fastest vaccine to go from development to deployment was the mumps vaccine in the 1960s, which took about four years.”

‘“This is shattering that record,’ says Otto Yang, MD, an infectious disease specialist at UCLA Health. ‘This is really an amazing achievement.’”

So, why hasn’t the “fake news,” any of the democrats, or “President” Biden given any credit at all to former President Trump for facilitating this remarkable achievement?

‘“President Biden’s plan is to rely on the work that has already been done by Operation Warp Speed,’ House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., wrote on Twitter on Thursday night. ‘That’s why only 9% of his “relief” bill went to defeating the virus.’”

‘“What American needs now is to fully reopen our economy and our classrooms,’ McCarthy added.”

Biden also directed states to make all adults eligible for vaccines by May 1, 2021.

So, adults weren’t eligible to get the vaccines already?

I don’t get it.   

“[Former President] Trump could not be immediately reached by Fox News for comment.”

That’s okay…, I think we can all imagine what he would have said, anyway.

In addition, Li Cohen of CBS News reports that, “While President Biden’s first prime-time address was largely optimistic regarding the country’s plan for tackling coronavirus, Mr. Biden also used his time at the podium to condemn the surge in violence that Asian Americans have experienced over the past year.”

‘“Too often, we’ve turned against one another,’ the president said. ‘Vicious hate crimes against Asian Americans, who have been attacked, harassed, blamed and scapegoated.’”

“While hate crimes fell overall by 7% in 2020, a new report published this week found that Asian Americans experienced a 150% surge in attacks. In July 2020, there were more than 2,100 anti-Asian American hate incidents that were directly related to the pandemic.”

A White House official had confirmed to CBS News’ Weijia Jiang ahead of the speech that the president would address these attacks, saying his decision to do so was deliberate and that his message would be ‘very forceful.’”

No one is going to argue that any these harassment incidents are okay.

So, along those lines, it is a good thing that President Biden brought this to everyone’s attention.

I’m not afraid to give credit where credit is due…, unlike Mr. Biden, here.

My only question is, why has this been kept such a secret, for so long?

I, literally, cannot recall hearing anything about this, not one time, over the last year.

Our mainstream news media, who are usually so eager to jump on these types of race-based attacks, obviously felt that none of this was newsworthy.

Why would that be?

Americans of Asian descent must not have fit their (the democrats) narrative for one reason or another.  

We’ll have to keep an eye on this and see how the democrats, and the “fake news” choose to spin this one.

These “anti-Trumpers” just won’t quit!

Philip Kennicott, Art and architecture critic, for The Washington Post, writes, “Trump wants a library. He must never have one.”

Okay…, quit beating around the bush, Kennicott…, how do you really feel?

Before we get going, it should be noted that Kennicott is a Pulitzer Prize-winning critic…, which means he’s officially a member of “the club,” and even slimier than your average elitist liberal critic.

Ugh.

But I digress.

Kennicott says, “Former president Donald Trump will have an official portrait in the National Portrait Gallery at some point. And in states where he remains popular, he could have airports, bridges and schools named for him. But Trump must never have an official presidential library, and Congress should move quickly to make sure he never will.”

Uh, excuse me, Phil, but Donald Trump was The President, wasn’t he?

And former presidents get to have presidential libraries, don’t they?

Even impeached Bill Clinton got to have one.

Richard Nixon resigned in shame, and he still got to have one. 

So, what’s your problem?

Why this never-ending discrimination wherever and whenever President Trump is concerned?

Are you and your democrat friends still really that frightened by him?

I guess so.

I can understand why you all are…, but that’s your problem, not ours. 

“On Jan. 20, the day he left office, the National Archives launched the Donald J. Trump Presidential Library website. Already, there are rumors that the former president is engaged with the idea of creating some kind of presidential center, perhaps run by longtime aide Dan Scavino, with a price tag as high as $2 billion.”

“There are rumors?”

How journalistically liberal of you.

There are also rumors that you are an idiot.

By the end of this blog, we’ll see that these are more than just rumors.  

Anyway…, you really have NO idea how much President Trump’s library may cost, Kennicott…, nobody does.

It hasn’t even been designed yet!

Have you seen the price tag for Obama’s proposed mega-complex?

It’s “estimated” to cost at least $500 million.

And who’s going to pay for that library?

Not Barack Obama.

I am sure, however, that President Trump will at least pick-up the lion’s share of the tab for his library.

That’s just how he rolls.     

Kennicott continues, “None of this, however, means that Trump could actually create a presidential center similar to the one planned for former president Barack Obama, or those dedicated to former presidents George W. Bush and Bill Clinton. As Anthony Clark, author of ‘The Last Campaign: How Presidents Rewrite History, Run for Posterity & Enshrine Their Legacies,’ wrote recently in Politico, it is unlikely that Trump has the focus, administrative savvy and financial resources to execute a presidential center: ‘Presidential libraries are complicated. And if you understand how they work — and how Trump himself works — it’s nearly impossible to imagine him actually pulling it off,’ Clark writes.”

Wait, what?!

You don’t think President Trump “has the focus, administrative savvy and financial resources to execute a presidential center, unlike Barack Obama, George W. Bush and Bill Clinton?!”

Seriously?!

Obviously, Anthony Clark and you, Philip Kennicott, Mr. Pulitzer Prize winner, don’t seem to be aware that Donald Trump built his fortune in construction, constructing mega-buildings and mega-properties!

How in THEE hell can you sit there and say, “it’s nearly impossible to imagine him actually pulling it off?”

It’s actually quite easy to see President Trump “pulling it off.”

And you two idiots actually get paid to write this stuff?

Kennicott continues, “But that doesn’t mean that Trump won’t try and that, in trying, cause further damage to the country.”

What?!

“Cause further damage to the country?”

His library may end up being an eyesore and appoint of contention for you democrat totalitarians, but that’s about it.

Being in Florida, I can envision President Trump’s library being a popular stop right along with Disney World, The Kennedy Space Center, Universal Studios, etc.   

“That is why Congress should use this moment to reconsider the legislation that helped create and shape the presidential libraries now administered by the National Archives, not just to prevent Trump from perpetrating one last, giant grift, but to reform the system so it serves the country [meaning the democrat totalitarians] better. This is long overdue, and would need to be done even if Trump weren’t trying to raise $2 billion for a Trump center. But his intention to do so makes this urgent, even an issue of national security.”

“An issue of national security?!”

C’mon, Phil, you’re really getting a little ridiculous with your hyperbole, here.

These democrats really are suffering from stage four Trump Derangement Syndrome (TDS).

Phil continues with a little history here, which is actually beneficial. “Before Franklin D. Roosevelt decided to donate his presidential papers to the federal government in 1939, the documents and paperwork generated by a president usually were considered the outgoing leader’s personal property. Roosevelt recognized an interest in giving the public access to this material.”

“The 1955 Presidential Libraries Act formalized the process, encouraging presidents to donate their papers, as well as land and a building to house them, which the National Archives would officially maintain.”

“Over the next decades, these privately created, federally administered libraries became increasingly complex, serving as museums, think tanks and shrines, with presidents allowed considerable — often far too much — control over what records were considered presidential and when the public could access them.”

The only presidents Phil has concerns about are the republican presidents, of course.

“Individual presidents used executive orders to make changes, the law was amended and former presidents were required to donate more and more resources to maintaining the federally operated part of these facilities.”

“Finally, in 2017, faced with the possibility of having to donate 60 percent of the total cost of an Obama presidential center to the federal government to cover running the library part of the project, the 44th president opted out of the system almost entirely.”

You see, if you’re a democrat, you’re allowed to “opt out” of whatever you want.”

“When the Obama center opens in Chicago, no official presidential library will be part of the complex, which will be privately built and operated. Obama’s presidential records, the vast bulk of them digital rather than paper, will have to be accessed elsewhere, although the Archives will loan material to the Obama center for exhibitions.”

So, it will be a shrine to Barack Obama and a liberal propaganda production studio, more than a library, and he will be in complete control of what is there and how he prefers to be remembered. I’m sure our collection of wealthy, elitist, liberals will be tripping over themselves to donate money to this.  

“Ordinarily, presidential records can’t be accessed for five, and up to 12, years after a chief executive leaves office. And before leaving office, a president has significant leverage over what the public eventually can see, which documents are delivered to the Archives, which are considered public and which are private, and to weigh in on other matters, including security and the national interest.”

The key word here is “ordinarily.”

“The case of Trump is exceptional by any standard, and he should be afforded no discretion over his records or any privilege to extend the amount of time before the public can see them.”

No discretion whatsoever…, of course not!  Not in President Trump’s case.

“Trump’s 2017 requirement that the National Archives withhold access to his materials until 2033 should be abrogated, and Congress should begin an extraordinary effort to recover as much of his communications legacy as possible, even material that wasn’t deemed ‘presidential.’ Trump’s presidency mixed public and private interests in a way that was unprecedented in modern American history, so his decisions on these matters can’t be trusted.”

“He incited an insurrection [an accusation he was acquitted of, by the way], and many of the people who may have participated in that, including members of Congress, are still actively engaged in public life. The need to know who they are and what they did isn’t just a matter for the FBI, the Justice Department and prosecutors.”

It isn’t just “a matter for the FBI, the Justice Department and prosecutors,” it’s a matter for the Democrat Gestapo!

Are you on drugs, Phil…, because it seems like you’re on drugs.

So, let me get this straight…, you want to use the presidential library process to collect all the information about President Trump you can in an effort to perpetuate prosecutorial attacks against former President Trump and any republicans in Congress who supported him?

You and your readership are sick, Phil.

Just sayin’.

“It is imperative to the nation’s future that we know how and why authoritarianism became so deeply and pervasively rooted in the Trump administration.”

Okay…, timeout!

The BS just keeps flowing out of your mouth like water out of a firehose involved in a five-alarm fire!

First of all, you use the word “authoritarianism.”

“Authoritarianism” is defined as, “The enforcement or advocacy of strict obedience to authority at the expense of personal freedom.  A lack of concern for the wishes or opinions of others.”

Now I ask you…, who does this better describe…, the censoring, cancelling, COVID shutdown mandating democrats, or former President Donald Trump?

Thank you.

“Historians, journalists and biographers need immediate access to this material (with the minimal oversight necessary by professional, nonpartisan archivists [Which means no conservative archivists will be tolerated.] to help educate the American public on the greatest threat to the republic since the Civil War.”

Here we go again with this 180-degree false hyperbole.

“Even a privately funded and operated Trump presidential library, which would be devoted to whitewashing his record and rewriting history, is a terrible and even dangerous idea.”

No, it’s you and your democrat totalitarian friends who are “dangerous,” Phil.

“Further, given Trump’s alleged misuse of charitable funds, including self-dealing, waste and other illegal activities, at his now dissolved New York-based foundation, any intention to start another public entity can only be considered a crime scene waiting to happen.”

The keyword there was “alleged.” Without that word, old Phil boy would have been looking at lawsuit that he could not afford.

What were your feelings about the Clinton Foundation, Phil?

I think we can all make an educated guess about your concerns there, Phil.   

“If it unfortunately does happen, it probably will be in Florida, where state Attorney General Ashley Moody is one of Trump’s top surrogates and a prominent supporter of his false claims of election fraud. So, on this matter, Americans cannot trust the rule of law in Florida, but they can put pressure on corporate and other entities not to donate to any group associated with any effort to build a Trump presidential center. And the FBI can keep a close watch on any national group created to solicit funding for such an endeavor.”

Watch it, Phil, with your false claims about his false claims of election fraud.

And you want the FBI to, “Keep a close watch on any national group created to solicit funding for such an endeavor?”

Honestly, it sounds like another Gestapo type tactic, but now that I think about it more, I’m sure it could be arranged. The FBI is just sooo “swampy” these days.

“Finally [Thank God!], Congress can improve American record-keeping and preservation by forbidding future presidents from raising money for presidential centers while still in office. Access to presidential records is also expensive and time consuming — even digital documents, the quantity of which has grown exponentially since most communications became electronic, need to be sorted, surveyed and labeled, a process that is laborious. Rachel Vagts, president of the Society of American Archivists, points out that the most urgent need, right now, is better funding for the National Archives, and a better culture of compliance with laws governing record-keeping.”

Ahhh, yes…, mo’ money, mo’ money, mo’ money…, and the proper level of compliance with the government, of course.

“Trump reportedly [Oh, really…, reported by who?] flouted those laws on a regular basis, tearing up and discarding even paper documents. [Can you imagine that?!  Someone throwing away or tearing up some piece of paper they wrote something on?!  For the love of God!!!] The extent to which he and his administration destroyed records and communicated outside of federal systems is unknown [Hillary’s “communications outside of federal systems” is known, and we have all learned it’s no big deal, so…], which is why he and his people should be cut out of the process of preserving those documents. And Americans should shame anyone — including architecture firms, exhibit designers and corporate donors — who helps Trump perpetuate the lies that nearly destroyed our 244-year-old effort to create a democratically governed republic.”

Ok…, that’s enough, Phil…, I think I just threw up in my mouth a little there.   

Philip Kennicott seems to have extended his supposed expertise far outside of the realm of an Art and architecture critic, here.

You should really just stay in your lane, Phil…, you kind of embarrassed yourself here, and exposed yourself as one of the true, card carrying, democrat neo-Nazis.  

Kennicott has collected a paycheck for over twenty years from The Washington Post. I guess that’s really all you need to know.

Inclosing, for your viewing pleasure, I’d like to suggest a few presidential library designs for some of our distinguished past presidents.

LA-HOO-ZA-HERS!

It was a satisfying view, watching the House impeachment managers parade out of the senate, after having been denied an illegitimate impeachment…, again.  

See ya, losers!

Don’t let the senate doors hit you in the backside on the way out!

What we saw from these legal imposters was the disregard of constitutional law, a continual stream of lies, the manipulation of senate and basic trial procedures, and the doctoring of evidence.

Yes…, the doctoring of evidence!

Are these democrats capable of doing anything above board, while playing by the rules?

It seems like that is too much to ask from them.

Yes…, they doctored evidence, which has been completely dismissed now.

Ya…, they tried manipulating evidence, but it didn’t work, so, …  

And then there’s the whole witness debacle.

They hold a vote of the senators, to decide whether witnesses should be allowed, or not…, requested by the democrat House managers…, the senate votes in favor of allowing witnesses…, but then the democrat senators, the RINO republicans, and the House Congressional leadership Nancy Pelosi), realized the Pandora’s box they just opened, and who would be required to testify by the republicans…, like Nancy herself, Mitch McConnell, and the FBI, to tell us all what they knew ahead of the capitol riot, and why they chose not to address security concerns…, and they quickly brokered a deal with republicans to ignore the prior vote and dispense with having any witnesses called.

Ha!

What a joke?!

What an illegitimate circus this whole “trial” was!

Let’s take a moment to remember these House impeachment managers, and give them their due.

According to Clare Foran, Janie Boschma and Curt Merrill of CNN, “House Speaker Nancy Pelosi named nine Democrats to serve as impeachment managers, a role that called on them to make the case against [former President] Trump during the trial.”

“The group of Democrats included a number of top Pelosi allies. Congressman Jamie Raskin of Maryland, an expert in constitutional law, served as the lead manager.”

Loser #1, “Jamie Raskin, lead manager, from Maryland’s 8th District.  Serving in the House for a third term, since 2017.  Committees: Oversight and Reform, Judiciary, Rules, House Administration, Select Subcommittee on the Coronavirus Crisis.  Pelosi chose Raskin to lead the nine impeachment managers. Raskin was a professor of constitutional law at American University for more than 25 years before taking office in the House in 2017. He also served as assistant attorney general of Massachusetts from 1987-89.”

So, Raskin was a professor of constitutional law for more than 25 years?!

Who’s constitution?

I mean, either he was studying some other country’s constitution, or he can’t read or understand English!

I wonder how many students he infected with his stupidness?

Loser #2, “Joaquin Castro, Texas’ 20th District.  Serving in the House for a fifth term, since 2013.  Committees: Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, Foreign Affairs, Education and Labor.  Castro was a litigator in a private law practice before joining Congress in 2013. He chaired the Congressional Hispanic Caucus during the 116th Congress through 2020.”

Mr. Castro was the token Hispanic of the group.  

Loser #3, “David Cicilline, Rhode Island’s 1st District.  Serving in the House for a sixth term, since 2011.  Committees: Judiciary, Foreign Affairs.  Cicilline is a former public defender and former mayor of Providence. He chairs the antitrust subcommittee on the House Judiciary committee.”

Just your typical democrat turd who didn’t have anything else going on. Does Rhode Island have more than one district?

Loser #4, “Madeleine Dean, Pennsylvania’s 4th District, Serving in the House for a second term, since 2019.  Committees: Judiciary, Financial Services.  Dean is a former executive director of the Philadelphia Trial Lawyers Association and later started a three-woman law firm outside of Philadelphia.”

Token female of the group and typical democrat turd who didn’t have anything else going on. Also, supposedly knows something about the law.

Loser #5 “Diana DeGette, Colorado’s 1st District.  Serving in the House for a 13th term, since 1997.  Committees: Energy and Commerce, Natural Resources.  Before her election to Congress, DeGette was an attorney in the Denver area. DeGette served in House leadership as a chief deputy whip for seven terms until 2019. She is the chair of the Oversight and Investigations subcommittee of the House Energy and Commerce committee.”

Second token female of the group and typical democrat turd who didn’t have anything else going on.  13 terms in Congress?  Boy, the people in her district have been dumb for quite a long time.

Loser #6, “Ted Lieu, California’s 33rd District.  Serving in the House for a fourth term, since 2015.  Committees: Judiciary, Foreign Affairs.  Lieu is a former active-duty officer in the US Air Force and a former prosecutor in the Judge Advocate General’s Corps. He still serves as a colonel in the US Air Force Reserves. Before his election to Congress, Lieu was also a judicial clerk for the US Court of Appeals. He is a co-chair of the Democratic Policy and Communications Committee.”

Mr. Lieu is the token Asian of the group. Did you ever wonder why there aren’t any funny shows about Asian families?

Loser #7, “Joe Neguse, Colorado’s 2nd District.  Serving in the House for a second term, since 2019.  Committees: Judiciary, Natural Resources, Select Committee on the Climate Crisis.  Neguse is a former litigator in a private practice. The son of immigrants from Eritrea, Neguse is the first Eritrean-American member of Congress and the first African-American to represent Colorado in the House. He co-chairs the Democratic Policy and Communications Committee.”

Mr. Neguse is the token African American male.  And where the hell is Eritrea?  Never heard of it. I’m sure I haven’t been missing much.

Loser #8, “Stacey Plaskett, Virgin Islands’ At-Large District, Serving in the House for a fourth term, since 2015.  Committees: Ways and Means, Budget, Agriculture.  Before her election to Congress, Plaskett served as assistant district attorney for the Bronx District Attorney’s Office and as senior counsel at the Department of Justice. She was also general counsel for the Virgin Islands Economic Development Authority.”

Ms. Plaskett is the group’s token African American female, and resident racist extraordinaire.  I didn’t even know that the Virgin Islands’ At-Large District was a thing.  Were all the rest of the available racist democrats, which would be all of them, busy that week?  

And last, but certainly not least, loser #9, “Eric ‘shagwell’ Swalwell, California’s 15th District, Serving in the House for a fifth term, since 2013, Committees: Judiciary, Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, Homeland Security.  Swalwell is a former prosecutor and former deputy district attorney for the Alameda County District Attorney in California. He is a co-chair of the Democratic Steering and Policy Committee.”

Swalwell is also a former sex toy for a Chinese spy. Phang Phang got info for bang bang!  

Let’s give them all a hand for being such a bunch of disingenuous, ignorant, pathetic losers!

Final score, President Trump 2, Democrat Nazis 0.

The U.S. Senate has 56 idiots!

Yes folks, the only thing we learned on the first day of Senate impeachment trial is that there are 56 idiots masquerading as senators in the United States Senate.

Marisa Schultz of Fox News reports that, “The Senate voted Tuesday to move ahead with the unprecedented impeachment trial of former President Trump after listening to nearly four hours of arguments on whether it is constitutional to try a president who is already out of office.”

“The vote was 56-44.”

So, 56 senators voted that they believe this impeachment is constitutional.

Please note, from Article 1, section 3 of the U.S. Constitution:

“The Senate shall have the sole Power to try all Impeachments. When sitting for that Purpose, they shall be on Oath or Affirmation. WHEN THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES IS TRIED. THE CHIEF JUSTICE SHALL PRESIDE: And no Person shall be convicted without the Concurrence of two thirds of the Members present.

“JUDGEMENT IN CASES OF IMPEACHMENT SHALL NOT EXTEND FURTHER THAN TO REMOVAL FROM OFFICE, and disqualification to hold and enjoy any Office of honor, Trust or Profit under the United States: but the Party convicted shall nevertheless be liable and subject to Indictment, Trial, Judgment and Punishment, according to Law.”

Is the Chief Justice presiding over this impeachment?

No.

Is former President Trump THE PRESIDENT?

No.

Can former President Trump be removed from office?

No…, he is no longer in office.

So, quite simply…, is this impeachment constitutional?

No.

Obviously not.

It’s obvious the Chief Justice doesn’t think so, as he has declined to oversee the proceedings.  

Yet, 56 of our esteemed senators decided these proceedings were legal and constitutional.

We obviously have 56 senators who cannot read English nor understand it.

This should actually disqualify them from holding the positions they do.

But there is another scenario.

Under this other scenario, these 56 senators, or at least most of them, understand this impeachment isn’t constitutional, but are choosing to proceed anyway, thus violating their own oaths of office and doing a complete disservice to the country.   

“The six Republicans who joined with the Democrats on voting to continue the trial were Sens. Susan Collins of Maine, Bill Cassidy of Louisiana, Lisa Murkowski of Alaska, Mitt Romney of Utah, Ben Sasse of Nebraska and Pat Toomey of Pennsylvania.”

Could these six RINOs (Republicans In Name Only) do us all a favor and just switch parties?

If you’re all going to just stupidly vote along with the democrats, then why pretend to be something you’re not?  

“Cassidy changed his vote from January when he was among the 45 Republicans who supported a motion by Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., that declared the trial unconstitutional. Cassidy said he was persuaded by the House impeachment managers’ arguments on Tuesday.”

‘“If anyone disagrees with my vote and would like an explanation, I ask them to listen to the arguments presented by the House Managers and former President Trump’s lawyers,’ Cassidy said in a statement. ‘The House managers had much stronger constitutional arguments. The president’s team did not.’”

Excuse me, Senator Cassidy, but the vote wasn’t about who made a better presentation…, the vote was about whether the impeachment is constitutional or not!

We can all read the two paragraphs I provided here, and make that determination on our own, without needing to receive any additional arguments or presentations.

It’s like a juror voting not guilty, for a defendant who was unquestionably guilty, just because his lawyer did a better job in your opinion.   

With all due respect senator…, that’s dumb.

Impeach VP Kamala Harris!

Yes…, impeach Kamala Harris!

Why?

Kamala Harris is guilty of actually doing what the democrats are accusing former President Trump of doing…, inciting violence…, which, of course, former President Trump never did.

It’s a disturbing pattern of behavior by the democrats, which emulates the tactics used by their role-models, the Nazis.

“Accuse the other side of that which you are guilty.“ —  Joseph Goebbels, Nazi Propaganda Minister

Ronn Blitzer of Fox News reports, “A man who was twice bailed out of jail in separate cases by A FUND SUPPORTED BY VICE PRESIDENT KAMALA HARRIS has been arrested again while under investigation for another possible case, Minnesota prosecutors said.”

“According to the Hennepin County Attorney’s office, Thomas Moseley, 29, had been arrested and released in cases involving allegations that include damaging a police precinct in August and rioting in December. He was arrested again on Jan. 27, just 22 days after his latest release. During that span, he is also suspected of trying to illegally purchase a gun, and officers are investigating that matter.”

“Moseley is facing three new felony counts of fifth-degree possession of a controlled substance while in possession of a firearm for allegedly having marijuana, cocaine and psilocyn mushrooms.”

“In the two previously mentioned cases, the new criminal complaint says, referring to property damage and gun possession charges, ‘THE DEFENDANT WAS ABLE TO SECURE UNCONDITIONAL RELEASE AFTER THE MINNESOTA FREEDOM FUND POSTED $5,000 CASH IN ADDITION TO A BOND that had been previously secured.’ In a third now-pending case, the Defendant was then charged with Riot in the Second Degree from an event that occurred on December 31, 2020.”

“The complaint goes on to say that in that case, THE MINNESOTA FREEDOM FUND AGAIN SECURED MOSELEY’S RELEASE, THIS TIME POSTING $60,000 BAIL.”

“The Minnesota Freedom Fund says it is ‘part of a larger movement to end the harms of money bail and jailing people for poverty.’ THE ORGANIZATION [THE MINNESOTA FREEDOM FUND] RECEIVED SUPPORT FROM THEN SENATOR KAMALA HARRIS IN JUNE.”

“If you’re able to, chip in now to the @MNFreedomFund to help post bail for those protesting on the ground in Minnesota,” Harris tweeted.

@KamalaHarris

June 1, 2020

CAN YOU IMAGINE THE UPROAR IF PRESIDENT TRUMP HAD SUPPORTED A FUND TO BAIL OUT THE CAPITOL PROTESTERS?!

In a later video clip of Kamala Harris, while appearing on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, she said, “But they’re [referring to the rioters in Minneapolis] not going to stop. They’re not going to stop. They’re not. This is a movement. I’m telling you. They’re not going to stop, and everyone, beware. Because they’re not going to stop. They’re not going to stop before election day in November, and they are not going to stop after election day. And everyone should take note of that on both levels. That they’re not going to let up. And they should not, and we should not.”

Is this not blatantly endorsing civil unrest?

Is this not blatantly endorsing the violence against the police there and the destruction of public and private property?

Is this not blatantly inciting this violence?

If the democrats want to keep pursuing this bogus impeachment of former President Trump, don’t we also need to hold Kamala Harris accountable as well?

At least she is in office and eligible to be impeached under The Constitution!

“A FOX 9 report from August revealed that the organization bailed out individuals including Darnika Floyd, who was charged with second-degree murder after allegedly stabbing a friend to death, and Christopher Boswell, who is facing charges of sexual assault and kidnapping. The group put up $100,000 on behalf of Floyd and $350,000 on behalf of Boswell.”

Such a worthy cause.

“As for Moseley, his latest arrest stems from events arising from his apprehension in October, but he is also under investigation on suspicion that he allegedly used straw buyers to buy a semiautomatic weapon from a store on Jan. 7 and Jan. 12. He had just been released in one of his other cases on Jan. 5, jail records show.”

“On Oct. 15, 2020, Moseley was apprehended during a protest during a court appearance for the former officers involved in the police encounter that led to George Floyd’s death. Officers who saw Moseley in the courthouse knew that Moseley had already been suspected of damaging a police precinct on Aug. 15, and they arrested him for that. During the arrest, they allegedly found a gun in his waistband.”

“The new criminal complaint states that after the October arrest, police obtained a search warrant for Moseley’s truck after officers noticed the smell of marijuana and what appeared to be a gun case in the car. After performing a search, police recovered marijuana, cocaine and psilocyn mushrooms, as well as several handguns, a rifle, a shotgun, ammunition and other items including a hatchet, crowbar, gas mask and spray paint can. More weapons and marijuana were then found at Moseley’s home, the complaint says.”

“On Jan. 10, tests confirmed the nature of the drugs, and Moseley was arrested later in the month and bail was set at $250,000. According to Hennepin County Jail records, he remains in custody.”

C’mon everybody!

Let’s support our Vice President and all chip in to get this domestic terrorist out of jail!

Like I said, VP Kamala Harris should be impeached!

And while we’re at it, we may as well go ahead and impeach “Illegitimate Joe” right away for actually doing what they claimed President Trump did, a quid pro quo, with The Ukraine!

Thank you, President Trump!

No one could ever have imagined the anger and vitriol that the democrats, the fake news, and the “deep state” directed towards you.

You weren’t beholden to anyone except the American people, and it scared the daylights out of all of them.

You exposed them all for what they really are: evil, lying, anti-America traitors.

You were forced to experience never ending attacks on you, your family, your friends, your supporters, and anyone associated with you.

I apologize that you had to endure this hateful treatment.

I really don’t know how you did it.

You are definitely a better man than I.

But even after taking all of these hurdles into consideration, you still managed to accomplish an amazing amount of good for our country and the American people.

And we truly appreciate it.

We really do.

We were all in awe of your seemingly tireless effort and work ethic.

You demonstrated what a president, who truly knew what they were doing, and a president who really had the best interests of The United States, and her people, at heart, could do.

There’s no going back for millions of us now.

You have set a standard of presidential leadership that will be nearly impossible to match.

The American people elected you with the slimmest of hopes that you would be what you seemed to be.

And you met and exceeded our hopeful expectations in every way.

We sure do miss you already.

Having the 2020 election stolen from you, and us, will go down as the greatest scandal in the history of our country…, and that’s saying a lot after witnessing the treasonous coup inflicted on you after your first election.

None of us “Trumpers” will ever forget or forgive what the democrats did to you, us, and our democracy.

It was utterly criminal and utterly shameful.

Again, I’m sorry, and I apologize, that you had to endure this complete miscarriage of justice.

This too, you handled with unimaginable poise and grace.

Again, I really don’t know how you did it.

And again, you are definitely a better man than I.    

It must be painful to see what is already happening to our country.

Again, I’m sorry about that, but you can sleep well knowing you did everything you could, while you were able to do it.

Thank you, again, sir.

If for some unknown reason you decide to take a crack at being our president again, we would all be happy to have you back in the oval office anytime.
