CNN is fake news?! No way! Way!!!

Mark Moore, for the New York Post, reports that, “A CNN staffer boasts to Project Veritas that network peddled anti-Trump ‘propaganda.’”

“Charlie Chester, a technical Director at CNN, claims, ‘If it wasn’t for CNN, I don’t know that Trump would have got voted out,’ during a series of fake Tinder dates filmed by Project Veritas.”

“Tinder” is a social networking and online dating app.

Do we love Project Veritas, or what?!

This is too funny!

What a moron…, bragging to fake Tinder dates how influential CNN and he were!

‘“Look what we did, we [CNN] got Trump out. I am 100​ percent going to say it, and I 100​ percent believe that if it wasn’t for CNN, I don’t know that Trump would have got voted out,’ Chester said, adding that he came to work at CNN because he ‘​wanted to be a part of that.’”

‘“Our focus was to get Trump out of office, right? Without saying it, that’s what it was.’”

Many of us were already aware of this, but for those who had any doubt, here it right from the horse’s mouth.

“Chester explained how they overdramatized Trump health issues by bringing in medical experts.”

‘“[Trump’s] hand was shaking or whatever, I think. We brought in so many medical people to all tell a story that was all speculation – that he was neurologically damaged, and he was losing it. He’s unfit to – you know – whatever. We were creating a story there that we didn’t know anything about. I think that’s propaganda,’ he said.”

So, he thinks that was propaganda.

Uh, yeah, Charlie, I think you’re correct there.

Definitely propaganda.

“Asked by the ​sleuth if he and CNN were concerned with Joe Biden’s health during the election, Chester said the network had that in mind.​”

‘“Showing him jogging is obviously deflection of his age and they’re [CNN] trying to make it like, ‘Oh, I’m healthy,’ Chester said.”

“The date asked, ‘What do you mean?’”

“Charlie Chester, a technical Director at CNN says the network was ‘creating a story there that we didn’t know anything about,’ in regards to former President Donald Trump’s health issues.”

‘“We would always show shots of him [Biden] jogging and that [he’s] healthy, you know, and him in aviator shades. Like you paint him as a young geriatric​,’ Chester replied.”

“A source close to CNN said Project Veritas targeted Chester through the dating app Tinder because his profile mentioned he worked at CNN, according to Mediaite [a political website].”

“The Project Veritas employee, who was not identified and claimed to be a nurse, went on five dates wearing a wire, including the final one at a coffee shop in Chester’s neighborhood.”

Ha!

These people are better than the FBI!  

“Chester told his ‘date’ he would be fine with it if Biden died, because he thought Vice President Kamala Harris is ‘f—ing real.’”

I’m sure Illegitimate Joe will be glad to hear that.

‘“I had so many arguments about, like — my dad would be like, “You’re, you know, you’re voting in Kamala Harris because he’s going to die in the presidency,” Chester told the woman. ‘And I’m like, He’s not going to f—ing die.’ But I’m OK with that. I’m OK with that. She probably could be a b—h in, like, a board meeting, and you’d hate her as a boss, but she’s f—ing real, and better than what we got regardless.’”

Wow…, how gender sensitive of you, Charlie.

Yup…, “woke” Charlie, that’s our boy!

“Chester was asked if CNN covered Biden tripping as he walked up the stairs.”

‘“You talk about that briefly. You don’t make that a huge story,’ he said.”

“CNN did not respond to requests for comment by The Post.”

OH, REEEEALLY?!!!

Project Veritas is like the modern-day version of “Candid Camera,” only you’re not sympathetic for the person being caught on camera.

“During one of the meetings with his ‘date,’ Chester talked about how CNN also targeted anti-Trump voters by focusing on climate change, adding ‘fear sells.’”

Well, CNN must have been ecstatic about the pandemic!

‘“I think there’s a COVID fatigue. So, like whenever a new story comes up, they’re [CNN’s] going to latch onto it. They’ve already announced in our office that once the public is — will be open to it — we’re going to start focusing mainly on climate,’ Chester said.”

‘“It’s going to be our [CNN’s] focus. Like our focus was to get Trump out of office, right? Without saying it, that’s what it was, right? So, our next thing is going to be climate change awareness​,’ he added.”

Thanks for the “heads up,” Charlie…, I’ll have to keep my eyes open for that.

“Charlie Chester, a technical Director at CNN, says the network’s goal was ‘to be climate change awareness​,’ following President Donald Trump’s election loss.”

‘“What’s that look like?’ Chester was asked.”

‘“I don’t know. I’m not sure. I have a feeling that it’s going to be like, constantly showing videos of decline in ice, and weather warming up, and like the effects it’s having on the economy​,’ Chester said.”

“​Asked who makes that decision, he said the ‘head of the network,’ referring to Jeff Zucker.”

‘“I imagine that he’s got his council and they’ve all like, discussed, like where they think​,​’​ he said​, trailing off.”

“He then said the new focus would be on a ​​‘p​andemic-like story that we’ll beat to death, but that one’s got longevity.’​”

‘“​Like there’s a definitive ending to the pandemic. It’ll taper off to a point that it’s not a problem anymore. Climate change can take years, so they’ll [CNN will] probably be able to milk that quite a bit,’ he said.​”

At the rate CNN is losing viewership, these days, CNN may not be around long enough to do much “milking.”

If anybody had any doubts about where CNN was coming from, I thinks those doubts have now all been laid to rest.

Calling “deadbeat” Durham, come in “deadbeat” Durham…, are you there “deadbeat” Durham?

Well, I guess they had us all fooled when they appointed John Durham, the former United States Attorney for the District of Connecticut, as Special Counsel for the Department of Justice to investigate the origins of the Trump-Russia collusion probe.

Durham was billed as this “bulldog” of an investigator, who was going to get to the bottom of it all, and start dishing out some justice.

Like I said, I guess we all fell for it once again.

Stupid us, thinking some of these treasonous “swamp” vermin would finally pay the price for their actions.  

Thomas Barrabi of Fox News reports, “Donald Trump mockingly wondered if Special Counsel John Durham is still alive, as the prosecutor’s probe drags on into the origins of the FBI’s ‘Crossfire Hurricane’ investigation of his 2016 campaign’s alleged ties to Russia.”

“Durham has been probing the matter for about two years and was officially appointed a ‘special counsel’ by former Attorney General Barr last October. Trump has long referred to the FBI’s Russia investigation as a ‘hoax’ and has been hoping to see more results from Durham’s investigation.”

‘“Where’s Durham? Is he a living, breathing human being? Will there ever be a Durham report?’ Trump said in a statement.”

Oh, he’s living and breathing alright…, but is a “swamp donkey” technically classified as a “human being?” 

I guess he would be.

“Trump has accused FBI officials of improper conduct during their investigation.”

And former President Trump has been proven to be right on almost all of his assertions.

“Special Counsel Robert Mueller found insufficient evidence to prove collusion between members of the Trump 2016 campaign and Russia.”

Mueller’s “evidence” was not only “insufficient,” it was non-existent!

You know if Mueller and his hit squad could have found ANYTHING, they would have ran with it. 

In a report from February 2, 2021, Brooke Singman of Fox News reports that, “Attorney General Bill Barr says Special Counsel John Durham is ‘making good progress’ in his investigation into the origins of the Trump-Russia probe.”

“Good progress?!!!”

“Good progress,” in Barr’s eyes, apparently means no progress. 

“Special Counsel John Durham’s investigation is largely focused on the activities of the FBI as he reviews the origins of the Trump-Russia probe, Fox News has learned, but sources familiar with the investigation said the prosecution of high-level FBI officials, like former Director James Comey, is ‘unlikely.’”

It’s “unlikely” because “swamp donkeys,” like James Comey, are not held to the same legal standards as someone like General Flynn, for example.

“Sources told Fox News that the investigation is ongoing and Durham completed the CIA portion of his investigation last year — and has now shifted his focus to activities of the FBI.”

Oh, goodie!

“Durham’s investigation has produced one criminal charge so far, against former FBI lawyer Kevin Clinesmith, who was accused of altering an email related to the surveillance of former Trump campaign aide Carter Page. That prosecution, though, did not allege a broader conspiracy within the FBI, and the conduct it involved had largely been laid out in a Justice Department inspector general report from last December.”

“Clinesmith in August pleaded guilty to making a false statement to Durham’s team. The offense carried a maximum term of imprisonment of five years and a fine of up to $250,000.”

“Last week, Clinesmith was sentenced to 12 months probation and 400 hours of community service, and no fine.”

What an absolute joke.

Just to be clear, any of us “non-swampers” out here would be sitting in jail right now.

Just sayin’.    

In an article for Law.com, C. Ryan Barber, January 29, 2021, reported that, “U.S. District Judge James Boasberg of the District of Columbia said he believed the former FBI lawyer, Kevin Clinesmith, did not knowingly insert an inaccuracy into the email to mislead a secretive surveillance court as it considered extending the surveillance of former Trump campaign adviser Carter Page.”

“Boasberg, a 2011 appointee to the federal trial court in Washington, [this means he’s a verified “swamp rat”] said his review of the evidence against Clinesmith suggested the former FBI lawyer’s conduct was an ‘inappropriate shortcut’ to save him work. ‘But I don’t believe he was attempting to achieve an end he knew was wrong,’ Boasberg said.”

Really?

You know, the last time I got a ticket for speeding, I wasn’t intentionally trying to break the law either!

Do you think I’d have a case if I appealed my ticket to Boasberg’s court?

“Still, Boasberg said Clinesmith’s conduct had struck at the ‘very core of what the [Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISA Court)] fundamentally relies on,’ namely candor and accuracy from the government, in reviewing applications for national security wiretaps.”

Ha!

So, even so, we’re going to overlook all of that.

Singman continues, “The Justice Department relied on Clinesmith’s assertion as it submitted a third and final renewal application in 2017 to surveil Page under the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act [FISA].

“Durham’s investigation began in May 2019, shortly after special counsel Robert Mueller completed his years-long investigation into whether the Trump campaign conspired with the Russians to influence the 2016 presidential election.”

“Mueller’s investigation yielded no evidence of criminal conspiracy or coordination between the Trump campaign and Russian officials during the 2016 election.”

Although, the truth be told, they never really expected to find any “evidence” of Russian collusion, since they were the ones who made that whole thing up!

They were really just hoping to uncover, something, anything, to tie to President Trump…, and they couldn’t even do that.

“Meanwhile, in December, Durham expanded his team, adding new prosecutors, after former Attorney General Bill Barr appointed him in October as special counsel to ensure he could continue his investigation during the Biden Administration.”

“In the scope order, obtained by Fox News, Barr stated that Durham ‘is authorized to investigate whether any federal official, employee, or any other person or entity violated the law in connection with the intelligence, counter-intelligence, or law-enforcement activities directed at the 2016 presidential campaigns, individuals associated with those campaigns, and individuals associated with the administration of President Donald J. Trump, including but not limited to Crossfire Hurricane and the investigation of Special Counsel Robert S. Mueller, III.’”

Is that supposed to make us all feel better about Durham’s “investigation?”

“Under U.S. code, the special counsel would produce a ‘confidential report’ and is ordered to ‘submit to the Attorney General a final report, and such interim reports as he deems appropriate in a form that will permit public dissemination.’”

And what’s with all of these secret “confidential reports?”

In case any of you people have forgotten, you work for the American people, and we pay the bills.

Hiding the findings of your reports behind “national security” is etting pretty old.

We know the only “security” you’re protecting is your own.

“As for Comey, the former FBI director last year said Durham’s probe was not concerning for him.”

‘“I have had no contact with him and haven’t talked to him,’ Comey told CBS News’ ‘Face the Nation’ in August. ‘I can’t imagine that I’m a target.’”

That’s funny, because I can’t imagine you wouldn’t be!

“A spokesman for Comey did not immediately respond to Fox News’ request for comment.”

Again, that’s odd.

“Also, over the summer, Durham’s team questioned former CIA Director John Brennan for some eight hours at CIA headquarters. Brennan later said through a spokesman he was assured he was ‘not a target.’”

“Brennan, in December, during an appearance on ‘Fox News Sunday,’ said he had no problem with Durham’s investigation continuing into 2021.”

‘“I think that is fine, I have no problems with it,’ Brennan said, adding that he has already sat down with Durham’s team for eight hours. ‘I do believe that John Durham is going to carry out his responsibilities ably and hopefully not with any political influence.’”

Sooo, Brennan hopes Durham’s investigation isn’t like Mueller’s investigation?

These “swamp monsters” really crack me up.  

Barrabi continues, “Durham and other U.S. attorneys who served under the Trump administration were asked to resign earlier this year after Biden entered the White House. Durham stepped down from his post as U.S. attorney for Connecticut but retained his status as special counsel for purposes of his ‘RussiaGate’ probe.”

President Biden has pledged not to interfere with Justice Department investigations.

Excuse us, Illegitimate Joe, if your “pledge” means nothing to us, based on the rest of your “pledges.” 

“Last year, the Senate Intelligence Committee published a five-part report detailing Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election. Officials said some of the Trump campaign’s contacts with Russian officials were a ‘grave counterintelligence threat,’ but ‘found no evidence’ that Trump or members of his campaign colluded with Russia.”

There’s that annoying “but found no evidence” acknowledgement again.  

“The committee also determined that FBI officials gave ‘unjustified credence’ to allegations levied in the infamous Steele dossier, an unverified report compiled by former British intelligence officer Christopher Steele.

Is it really a case of “unjustified credence” when it was they who concocted the whole treasonous scenario in the first place?

Now that Illegitimate joe is in office, with Merrick Garland as the Attorney General, we shouldn’t expect any of these “investigations” to produce anything. 

I’m sorry, former President Trump, you may have to wait until 2022, or 2024, when you’re re-elected.

Who’s a “White Supremacist” now?

Merriam-Webster defines a “white supremacist” as, “A person who believes that the white race is inherently superior to other races and that white people should have control over people of other races.”

I would agree with this definition…, and by this definition, I would guesstimate the number of these people, in the United States, is a very small fraction of the people…, like .0001 percent.

I also feel safe in saying that the vast majority of “white people” in our country feel this ideology is wrong and divisive.

The democrats, however, have now hijacked, and are attempting to redefine the term, “white supremacist” to mean anyone who doesn’t agree with their extreme totalitarian ideology…, and especially anyone who supported, or supports, former President Trump, and conservatism in general.

So, in essence, they’re trying to dump 70 million plus of us, if not more, into a “white supremacist” barrel that previously only held up to like 35,000 people. 

In addition, the democrats are attempting to redefine these people, who don’t agree with their extreme totalitarian ideology, as domestic terrorists!

This overt attempt at creating their own ideological police state is very dangerous, and scary, to be honest.

The Associated Press (AP) reports, “White supremacist propaganda reached alarming levels across the U.S. in 2020, according to a new report that the Anti-Defamation League [ADL] [An international Jewish non-governmental organization based in the United States.] provided to The Associated Press.”

“There were 5,125 cases of racist, anti-Semitic, anti-LGBTQ and other hateful messages spread through physical flyers, stickers, banners and posters, according to Wednesday’s report.” That’s nearly double the 2,724 instances reported in 2019. Online propaganda is much harder to quantify, and it’s likely those cases reached into the millions, the anti-hate organization said.”

What about the “hate speech” directed at President Trump?

I would venture to say the cases of this far exceeded 5,125 cases, AND THAT’S BY DEMOCRAT POLITICIANS ALONE!!!

And how about the “hate speech” directed at the supporters of President Trump?!

The cases of this by democrat politicians and the democrat propaganda mainstream media has to be in the thousands as well.

This doesn’t even take into consideration the number of “hate speech” cases by democrats in general.

But that’s okay, because we’re talking about President Trump and his supporters, here, and they deserve it, right? 

“The ADL, which was founded more than a century ago, said that last year marked the highest level of White supremacist propaganda seen in at least a decade.”

Right back at ya with the anti-Trump and anti-conservative propaganda.

“Its report comes as federal authorities investigate and prosecute those who stormed the U.S. Capitol in January, some of whom are accused of having ties to or expressing support for hate groups and antigovernment militias.”

‘“As we try to understand and put in perspective the past four years, we will always have these bookends of Charlottesville and Capitol Hill,’ group CEO Jonathan Greenblatt said.”

Okay, we see where you’re coming from.

It is a matter of selective perspective.  

‘“The reality is there’s a lot of things that happened in between those moments that set the stage,’ he said.”

There certainly was.

“Christian Picciolini, a former far-right extremist who founded the deradicalization group Free Radicals Project, said the surge in propaganda tracks with White supremacist and extremist recruiters seeing crises as periods of opportunity.”

Really?

‘“They use the uncertainty and fear caused by crisis to win over new recruits to their “us vs. them” narrative, painting the “other” as the cause of their pain, grievances or loss,’ Picciolini told the AP. ‘The current uncertainty caused by the pandemic, job loss, a heated election, protest over extrajudicial police killings of Black Americans, and a national reckoning sparked by our country’s long tradition of racism has created a perfect storm in which to recruit Americans who are fearful of change and progress.’”

These are also issues well worth being concerned about…, and being concerned about them doesn’t make someone a “white supremacist.”  

“Propaganda, often distributed with the intention of garnering media and online attention, helps White supremacists normalize their messaging and bolster recruitment efforts, the ADL said in its report. Language used in the propaganda is frequently veiled with a patriotic slant, making it seem benign to an untrained eye.”

Ya…, we wouldn’t want any of this “patriotic” talk catching on!

Do you really want to go there regarding propaganda?

“But some flyers, stickers and posters are explicitly racist and anti-Semitic. One piece of propaganda disseminated by the New Jersey European Heritage Association included the words ‘Black Crimes Matter,’ a derisive reference to the Black Lives Matter movement, along with cherry-picked crime statistics about attacks on White victims by Black assailants.”

No way?!

They actually said, “Black Crimes Matter?!

Unimaginable!!!

“A neo-Nazi group known as Folks Front distributed stickers that include the words ‘White Lives Matter.’”

What?!!!

They actually dared to say, “White Lives Matter?!

Shocking!!!

This cannot be allowed!!!

Do these people have no decency?!!! 

“The propaganda appeared in every state except Hawaii.”

Aloha!  “Pass the poi Mahalo!”

Good for Hawaii.

“The highest levels were seen in Texas, Washington, California, New Jersey, New York, Massachusetts, Virginia and Pennsylvania, according to the report.”

That surprises me, seeing that Washington, California, New Jersey, New York, Massachusetts, Virginia and Pennsylvania, are all such hotbeds of conservative thought!

Now please, please, don’t get me wrong…, I’m not downplaying or excusing the instances of real “hate speech” directed at any group…, but let’s get real here.

In America you’re allowed to have an opinion, regardless of how ignorant or how hateful it is.  That’s the First Amendment, and that’s freedom of speech.

All I’m saying is let’s be honest with what’s going on here…, and let’s not try to hang all of this crap on the 70 million plus of us, whose only crime is loving our country and the American way of life.

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.

Joe Biden got how many votes?!

In the 2020 presidential election, Joe Biden got over 81 million votes.

This is different, however, from saying over 81 million people voted for Joe Biden in the 2020 presidential election.

Yes, there were over 81 million votes registered for Joe Biden, but did over 81 million people actually vote for Joe Biden?

Let’s give this claim the smell test.

If we look back at the 2020 presidential race, Joe Biden was very unimpressive in his own party’s primary elections.

Once Biden was crowned with the democrat party nomination, his campaign for president was almost non-existent.

He rarely appeared anywhere, and when he did his turnout was abysmal and embarrassing.  

Yet, we are told to believe Joe Biden received more votes than any presidential candidate in history?!

We are told to believe that Joe Biden got almost 12 million more votes than Barack Obama got in 2008, and over 16 million more than Obama got in 2012?!

Really?

Joe Biden’s 81+ million votes was 7 million more than President Trump got, and President Trump’s 74+ million votes was 11 million more votes than he got when he beat Hillary Clinton in 2016.

And Joe Biden supposedly beat President Trump, even though the votes President Trump received from African-Americans, Hispanics, and Asians were up between 4%-7%.

Again…, really?

That’s an impressive gain.

It’s also always been said that no one wins the White House without winning Ohio…, but Joe Biden did.

So, how did Joe Biden manage to win the election?

That’s the question any fair-minded and independent thinking person has to ask.

And anyone with any common sense would have to say that Joe Biden’s victory DOES NOT pass the smell test…, not by a long shot.

“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!

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.

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.
