Fascistics at CNN in Over Drive to Keep Creepy Dem Bidens ‘Clean Enough’

THE AD THAT CNN WOULDN’T RUN

by  John Hinderaker  at PowerLine:

CNN refused to run this Trump ad on the Biden Ukraine scandal. Why?

“CNN is rejecting the ad, as it does not meet our advertising standards,” a network spokesperson told The Daily Beast. “Specifically, in addition to disparaging CNN and its journalists, the ad makes assertions that have been proven demonstrably false by various news outlets, including CNN.”

I have no idea what “assertions” have been “proven demonstrably false.” That is a characterization that I would apply to probably 75% of Democratic Party advertising carried by CNN and other networks, but what they have in mind here, I don’t know. Here is the ad:

Donald J. Trump

PRAGER PreRelease Screening NO SAFE SPACES at Parkway Theater in Minneapolis, Tuesday, July 9!!

SPECIAL SCREENING OF NO SAFE SPACES, JULY 9

by  John Hinderaker   at PowerLine:

If you live in or near the Twin Cities, you should think about attending a special pre-release screening of the Dennis Prager/Adam Carolla film No Safe Spaces next Tuesday, July 9. No Safe Spaces, which deals with the insanity on America’s college campuses, won’t be released until the Fall, but we have arranged for a special screening, sponsored by Center of the American Experiment. Details are here. The showing will be at the Parkway Theater in south Minneapolis, beginning at 7:00 p.m.

Here is a trailer for the film. In addition to Prager and Carolla, it features appearances by Jordan Peterson, Dave Rubin, Alan Dershowitz, Cornel West and Sheryl Attkisson:

By the way, you may notice that the trailer said the movie was coming out in Fall 2018. It was pushed back, I believe because so many outrages continued to take place on campuses that the producers kept adding more material.

As a special treat, the movie’s director, Justin Folk, will attend our July 9 screening and will answer questions about the filming of the movie. The venue is nice; the Parkway Theater is newly renovated and serves beer, wine and cocktails as well as Diet Coke and Sprite. Also, did I mention that admission is only $5?

You can sign up for the event here. I encourage you to do so, it is going to be a lot of fun.

What Did the Dem’s Fascistic Russia-CNN-MSNBC Sale’s Hoax Cost?

The cost of the Russiagate hoax

by Thomas Lifson at American Thinker:
.

The media that promoted the hoax originally generated by the Hillary Clinton presidential campaign and the Democratic Party are in full denial mode.  They don’t merely ignore their role, they defend it.

Jake Tapper is “unaware of any mistakes” that his employer, CNN, made in its coverage.  A 47-second video:

His CNN colleague Brian Stelter goes one step farther and takes the offensive, invoking the twin demons of the Left’s worldview: Donald Trump and Fox News. W  en Trump tweeted something that had appeared on FNC, why, that is reason to dismiss it:


Screen grab via Grabien.

This is a five-minute video, but the meat is this: President Trump right now is celebrating Robert Mueller’s no collusion conclusion.  He’s celebrating by condemning the press.  He’s repeating a Fox News talking point.  You can see it here.  Faith, he says.  But the papers were actually honored for covering Russia’s real 2016 attack against the U.S. election and for covering Trump’s connections to all that was real news.

https://share.grabien.com/share.php?id=587497&userid=2948&loginid=390&playercolor=%23ee1a3b&playersize=600&code=73d134c93d5d8a8570aa0a4991cb93ee

Meanwhile, a grown-up who lives on the Left, Stephen Cohen, takes a sober look at the real costs of the hoax in The Nation, the left-wing magazine for which he has written for years.  Cohen is an emeritus professor at Princeton, where he was a well known and respected scholar of Russia.  Cohen has been a sober voice throughout the hoax, well anchored in the reality of the ways that nation operates.  His thoughtful assessment is worth reading in full.  But here are the major points he makes.

Nearly three years of Russiagate’s toxic allegations have entered the American political-media elite bloodstream, and they almost certainly will reappear again and again in one form or another.

This is an exceedingly grave danger, because the real costs of Russiagate are not the estimated $25–40 million spent on the Mueller investigation but the corrosive damage it has already done to the institutions of American democracy — damage done not by an alleged “Trump-Putin axis” but by Russsigate’s perpetrators themselves.  Having examined this collateral damage in my recently published book War with Russia?  From Putin and Ukraine to Trump and Russiagate, I will only note them here.

§ Clamorous allegations that the Kremlin “attacked our elections” and thereby put Trump in the White House, despite the lack of any evidence, cast doubt on the legitimacy of American elections everywhere—national, state, and local. …

§ Defamatory Russiagate allegations that Trump was a “Kremlin puppet” and thus “illegitimate” were aimed at the president but hit the presidency itself, degrading the institution, bringing it under suspicion, casting doubt on its legitimacy. …

§ Mainstream media are, of course, a foundational institution of American democracy, especially national ones, newspapers and television, with immense influence inside the Beltway and, in ramifying synergic ways, throughout the country.  Their Russiagate media malpractice, as I have termed it, may have been the worst such episode in modern American history. …

§ For better or worse, America has a two-party political system, which means that the Democratic Party is also a foundational institution.  Little more also need be pointed out regarding its self-degrading role in the Russiagate fraud.  Leading members of the party initiated, inflated, and prolonged it.  They did nothing to prevent inquisitors like Representatives Adam Schiff and Eric Swalwell from becoming the cable-news face of the party.

§ Finally, but potentially not least, the new Cold War with Russia has itself become an institution pervading American political, economic, media, and cultural life. Russiagate has made it more dangerous, more fraught with actual war, than the Cold War we survived.

Communist Media Matters Attacking Tucker Carlson

TUCKER RETURNS FIRE

by Scott Johnson  at PowerLine:

The totalitarian left in the form of Media Matters for Communists has undertaken a campaign against Tucker Carlson. Bubba Clem provides the background to the MMC campaign in the Wall Street Journal column “The speech police come for Tucker Carlson.” Last night Tucker undertook to return fire (video below). Tom Lifson takes note at American Thinker in “Media Matters has been throwing stones at Tucker Carlson from its own glass house.” Derek Hunter has more in this Townhall column

I think I can say that in this battle we support Tucker without reservation. Speaking metaphorically, may he beat the face of MMC — here I borrow an old formulation from Howard Cosell — to a bloody pulp.

Churchill: “The Most Exhilarating Experience in Life Is To Be Shot At…….

       …….and have been missed!!”

– – – – – – –

CHURCHILL, TRUMP, AND GEORGE W. BUSH

by John Hinderaker   at PowerLine:

I am currently reading Andrew Roberts’ biography of Winston Churchill. So I followed, with interest, the link that someone (probably Scott) put up as a Power Line Pick to this piece by Roberts in the Spectator about his book tour in America. His theme is that Americans, in general, esteem Churchill now more than ever. Which is a good thing. I want to comment on a single paragraph in Roberts’ article:

The livid scar down the center of his forehead that Churchill received in that accident is visibly to the fore in George W. Bush’s excellent portrait of him that hangs in the Dallas Country Club. At dinner à trois with the former president and Laura Bush there, ‘43’ — as everyone in Texas seems to call him — pondered whether he might turn out to be the last Republican president in American history, because clearly Trump doesn’t count. We discussed the Whig-Democrat struggles of the 1830s and 1840s, and the way that no political party has an inherent right to exist.

Having no reason to doubt Roberts’ account, I take it that at a private dinner at the Dallas Country Club, former President George W. Bush suggested that he might have been the last Republican President ever, on the ground that Donald Trump doesn’t count. And maybe after Trump there will be no more Republicans.

I have never thought of W as an arrogant man–on the contrary–but this attitude reeks of the ignorant contempt with which the establishment, in all its many branches, views President Trump. In what way is Trump not a “real” Republican? I can think of one: he is not a budget hawk. But then, I don’t recall either of the Bushes being much of a budget hawk, either, when in office. At least Trump didn’t run as one.

Trump has governed considerably more as a traditional Republican than I expected. The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, a classic Republican measure, has been a smashing success, as I testifiedbefore the Joint Economic Committee of Congress. Lots of Republicans talk about cutting needless regulations, but Trump has actually done it to an extraordinary and praiseworthy degree.

Some years ago I was invited to attend an event at SMU sponsored by the George W. Bush Presidential Library. (I wrote about it on Power Line, but I can’t readily find that post in our archives.) The theme of the event was the need to increase our rate of economic growth. Various economists and President Bush himself explained that we should be striving for 4% annual GDP growth, something that used to be considered routine in the U.S., but during the Obama years was said to be a thing of the past. Strong economic growth solves a lot of problems.

Under President Trump, our rate of economic growth has doubled, although not to 4%–not yet, anyway. George W. Bush should be delighted with this result, but it doesn’t sound as though he expressed such delight to Andrew Roberts.

Then there is foreign policy. President Trump is standing up to Russia and China. He has rejected Barack Obama’s absurd dream of an alliance with Iran’s mullahs. He is completing the destruction of ISIS. He is staunchly pro-Israel. To what, in this litany, does W object? Nothing, I assume.

Then we have the voters. Gallup reports that 90% of Republicans approve of President Trump’s performance. Other surveys have placed the number even higher–higher than W’s own approval among Republican voters through most of his time as president. So, in what sense is Trump not a “real” Republican?

In this sense, I think: George W. Bush was a good president. I gave him a B- rating when his second term ended. But he had one great failing: he didn’t fight back against the Democratic Party’s continuous assaults on his administration. He was BusHitler. We haven’t forgotten. Has he?

“Artists” produced images of W’s brains being blown out by assassins, in what turned out to be a preview of the Trump administration. Liberals absurdly claimed that, contrary to the CIA’s assurances, Bush was the one person who knew all along that Saddam Hussein didn’t have vast stocks of chemical weapons–it turned out that Saddam only had small stocks–and Bush lied his way into Iraq in order to “steal” that country’s oil. Which, of course, didn’t happen. It was all a Democratic Party lie.

George W. Bush was slandered in myriad ways, almost all of them absurd. But instead of fighting back, he just took it. His administration gave little or no aid to those, like us at Power Line, who wanted to defend him. And the Democratic Party press-the Washington Post, the New York Times, the Associated Press, and all of the fringe characters whom they empower–destroyed his administration.

Donald Trump isn’t like that. He fights back. He calls out liberal news sources that lie about him as “fake news,” which they are. He may lose in 2020–no one knows what next year’s presidential election might bring–but if so, he will go down fighting against the forces that hate him and that hate America, and want to move our country toward socialism. The same forces that ultimately defeated George W. Bush.

The sad thing, in my view, is that W apparently has joined the establishment. He thinks Trump isn’t a Republican, and the Republican Party likely has no future after the current aberrant office-holder. News flash, W: the cause of freedom didn’t die when you moved back to Texas. The Republican Party stands for liberty, for limited government, for a strong foreign policy, for a better life for ALL Americans, not just app developers and Wall Street wizards. And guess what, George: Donald Trump, for all his faults, has done a better job of advancing these ideals than you did.

Which is why virtually all Republicans approve of what Trump is doing. I don’t know what the future holds, but I think Donald Trump has made it more likely, not less likely, that future

Note from ghr:   Churchill was big time popular in our United States  during WWII….even all of the way down to us kids playing war games in the empty lot across the alley where I was raised in St. Paul, MN….Roosevelt was a nobody in our little group.   He always sat and was almost never displayed  on the Movietone News we always saw at the local Highland Park movie theater on Saturdays when war news was shone every opening half hour at the movies.

Because of the war action in our local  Minnesota  movie news from 1942-1945 was primarily from the European theater, the hero of my  time  was this chubby  Prime Minister  of England who was so frequently featured in movie newsreels in body and word.   I was too crippled a reader to read novels then and forever, yet  I had no problems collecting knowledge through encyclopedias, magazines, maps, and daily news, both morning AND afternoon,  and radio.

Personally, I  first discovered in mind and vision the Pacific War ….starting to read newspaper headlines and maps  in earnest a week or so before the American attack on the Japanese bombings at Midway.    That 1941 Christmas of  Pearl Harbor  I got my first globe of the world along with a world atlas from Santa.

My mother was responsible for gift things in those days.

She was aware how fanatic  I was studying  road maps whenever we would go North before the war to Lake Alexander near Cushing, Mn. especially  in our new  1941 Plymouth sedan my dad bought that Spring.   The road maps were free whether at the Shell, Skelly, Standard, Phillips 66, Pure Oil,  or any stations…whenever   we stopped for  gas.   It was  the only means my parents  could keep me  from asking questions about scenery or whatever whenever  dad was driving.   I still have a couple hundred of them  saved to this day.

I can’t remember when or where  I was first exposed to this “most exhilarating experience”  comment.   I do know it was quite persuasive in my decision to join the US Army after I got my first college degree.

Leftists Claim Trump 20% Behind Lefties in Popular Polls…IS IT TRUE?

The Conservative Majority and Polls

By Bruce Walker at  American Thinker:

Gallup on January 8 published a poll that showed that conservatives outnumber liberals in America.  The most resilient political fact over the last half-century is the clear majority of Americans who identify themselves as “conservative” rather than “liberal.”  Even California has a conservative advantage, according to some polls.  Even CNN exit polls in the 2018 election all show the same thing.

Every single major poll in the last fifty years has shown that conservatives outnumber liberals.  What is bizarre about these data is that not only do liberals passionately reject this idea, but so do conservatives, who have become both cynical and depressed and are just as eager to join liberals in rejecting the idea that America is a conservative nation.

The two most conservative presidents of the last century – Calvin Coolidge (Reagan’s favorite president) and Ronald Reagan – were enormous electoral successes.  Reagan defeated incumbent Jimmy Carter by an overwhelming majority of the popular vote and by carrying 44 states, including all of the ten biggest.  When Reagan ran for re-election, he carried 49 states, and a shift of one tenth of one percent would have given Reagan all fifty.

Coolidge carried almost twice the popular vote of the Democrat nominee, Davis, and although the Solid South gave Davis about one quarter of the electoral votes, the landslide was still dramatic:  Coolidge carried the states outside the South, with more than two-to-one landslides in most states.  Had Coolidge run for re-election in 1928, he would have likely won by a margin of the popular vote unequaled in the history of our two-party system.

A review of polling data in 2018 shows the same conservative majority.  None of the polling organizations is conservative, and all of them are, in fact, pretty clearly hostile to conservatives.  CNN did exit polling in the 2018 election, and here are some unexpected findings of the conservative-liberal split in America.

Nationally, CNN found that conservatives outnumber liberals by 36% to 27%.   Consider the CNN breakdown in states where Republicans lost key Senate races in 2018: Nevada, 35% conservative and 25% liberal; Montana, 42% conservative and 20% liberal; Ohio, 39% conservative and 21% liberal; Arizona, 40% conservative and 22% liberal…and so on.  Republicans consistently won fewer votes than the conservative advantage in the state would have provided.

Survey USA shows that conservatives nationally outnumber liberals by 26% to 21% in America.  This is consistent with state polls, which routinely show conservatives as more potent in states than electoral results would suggest.

Indeed, if Republicans won those states and congressional districts in which conservatives outnumbered Democrats, they would have a clear and solid majority in Congress and easy presidential victories.  Republicans ought to embrace this and make each race one of conservatives against liberals – but Republicans shy away from this and are encouraged to do so by conservatives who simply do not believe that they are the ideological majority in America.

What makes this even more bizarre is that the most prestigious polling organization, Gallup, goes to extraordinary lengths to hide conservative strength.  Consider the last Gallup Poll of ideological strength by state.  The title is “Conservative Leaning States Drop from 44 to 39,” but this excludes 14 states that, according to Gallup, are neither “Conservative” nor “Liberal.”  What is the bottom line?  Thirty-nine states are conservative; nine are liberal; and two states, Delaware and Hawaii, have an equal number of conservatives and liberals.  What is the most liberal “state”?  Surprise!  That “state” is the District of Columbia.

This deliberate underplaying and even ignoring the conservative majority in America is something I have been writing about for eleven years at the America Thinker.  There is no real explanation for conservative strength except that it is true.   Nor is there an explanation for Gallup totally ignoring its own findings ten years ago, which showed that every single state of the nation had conservatives outnumbering liberals.  That ought to be a huge news story, but Gallup tacitly ignored its own scoop.

Why, then, do conservatives not run America?  Begin with the only polity in America that has an overwhelming leftist majority: the federal capital.  Then consider the Orwellian monopoly of professors on college campuses.  Polls as early as 1962 have shown that only a small percentage of professors are not liberals.

The left wins by intimidation and by spiking all information that contradicts its dull, dim catechism.  The fact of a resilient conservative majority – a fact produced by news outlets that despise conservatism – ought to give us courage and confidence, but that comes only when we believe in ourselves and the attractiveness of our cause.

Gallup on January 8 published a poll that showed that conservatives outnumber liberals in America.  The most resilient political fact over the last half-century is the clear majority of Americans who identify themselves as “conservative” rather than “liberal.”  Even California has a conservative advantage, according to some polls.  Even CNN exit polls in the 2018 election all show the same thing.

LAWS OF AMERICA’S DEM FASCISTS, AD 2018

The Democratic Ten Commandments

by Dee Chadwell at American Thinker:

 

The Kavanaugh-Ford hearing was excruciating to watch but nevertheless instructive.  The entire nation came face to face with the neon glare of the nastiness that is now the Democratic Party.  Decent Democrats still exist, but either they fail to pay attention and, therefore, function on tradition only or their education has so failed them that they have no idea that the party has gone off the deep end.  They don’t know there is a deep end.

The 21stcentury Democrat is not a new species; he is just a new rendition of the ancient pagan mindset.  These new Democrats have more raw power than ancient pagans ever had.  They have all the advantages of modern technology; they have phenomenal wealth behind them; they have the leisure to work themselves into twisty fits over any instance of reality that dirties their rosy-pink world.

America has always stood on a sturdy foundation of hard work, honesty, self-reliance, and a reverence for the individual as a creation of God Almighty.  American jurisprudence was founded on ancient Hebrew law and on Anglo-Saxon concepts of government.  Democratic ideas, as well, come up out of antique concepts, but theirs are the opposite of everything America has ever tried to be.

America built its laws on the basis of the Ten Commandments.  Those commandments are good guides for any society.  Any civilization made up of people who largely govern themselves along those lines will be a free, peaceful, and prosperous nation.  History demonstrates that.  But Democratic policies are at odds with the entirety of these guidelines; they have developed their own Decalogue.

These they adhere to with a vengeance:

  1. Thou shalt have no other gods but human power.  Winning elections is the Democrat raison d’être because power is their god; the party is their church; and its manifestation is large, centralized government.  The party may demand that Democrats lie, cheat, steal, destroy property, shoot baseball-players, or kill babies, but all those activities are for the greater good: power.
  2. Thou shalt worship under the direction of these priests: Darwin, Alinsky, Spock, Marx, Dewey, and Sanger – to say nothing of Baal.  Child sacrifice is their sacrament.  All ideas counter to the thinking of these apostles must be mocked, blocked, and twisted.
  3. Thou shalt bow down to nothing wholesome or productive.  Kindness, genuine caring, duty, and honor are attributes to fake in order to win elections – see the First Commandment – but are never indulged with sincerity.  These values can clog with guilt many of the actions necessary for the required political fight to the death.
  4. Thou shalt demonstrate no respect for the universe as God’s creation.  Good Democrats must see the Earth as fragile, purposeless, and a god itself.  Democrats may show up for church on Sunday, but they are not to take any of it seriously and should choose a church that preaches Marx rather than Paul.
  5. Thou shalt destroy all vestiges of family.  Democrats believe in taxing citizens so intensely that both parents have to earn a wage.  Their public school curricula train children to revere government rather than parents.  Democrats champion sexual deviance and prepare children to indulge their sexuality from a young age.  They champion abortion at all stages of fetal development and deny the differences between the sexes to produce maximum societal confusion.  When the family fails, then government can take over.  One can see the resemblance to the ancient phallic cults.
  6. Thou shalt attack, provoke, ridicule, and kill whoever gets in your way.  Even when they don’t physically kill their political opponents, they kill their livelihoods, their reputations, their families.  This commandment gives modern Democrats an excuse to run conservatives out of restaurants, out of theaters, out of their homes.  Democrats can attack with impunity Republicans’ electronic privacy – Dems can spy, tap, intercept emails, whatever is necessary.  This commandment goes so far as to block any attempt their opponents can make to defend themselves – take their guns, take their knives, keep them vulnerable.  Remember – winning is everything because winning brings power.
  7. Thou shalt have any kind of sex with whomever, whenever, and wherever.  Refer back to the fifth commandment.  Societal chaos and desperation open the door to government control – i.e., power.
  8. Thou shalt legalize theft by authorizing the government to steal.  Big government requires big money to bribe voters, to keep them dependent, to be able to import new voters.  Under this command, law enforcement must be hamstrung to such an extent that property crimes can’t be enforced.  All ideas of private property must be squelched and socialism championed.
  9. Thou shalt bear false witness against thine enemies.  They make up elaborate stories of sexual deviance and financial malfeasance, of drunken orgies and high school shenanigans.  Though they condone such behavior among themselves, they feign horror and outrage at the supposed missteps of their opposition.  They gum up the operations of government with said allegations and erase all remembrance of innocence until proven guilt.  Winning, remember, is everything.
  10. Thou shalt envy, covet, and indulge all jealous attitudes, hating anyone who has accumulated more wealth, more power, or more fame than you have.  This is the engine the runs the whole thing.  Without envy, there is no discontent.  Where there is no discontent, there is little need of government.  Where there is little need of government, there is no accumulation of power.  If there is no accumulation of power, there is none for the party to grab and no wealth for the party to pocket.

What we saw the Democrats do before, during, and after the Kavanaugh inquiry had to have sobered up a lot of honest, honorable Americans because what we saw on display was grotesque.  Kavanaugh was damned if he did and damned if he didn’t before he even walked into that chamber.  Without one word of testimony Democrats were spouting their “I believe her,” decrees as if they were holy proclamations.

But most Americans are good people – generous and forgiving, honest and hardworking, earnest and dutiful.  What we saw in the behavior of the Democrats, both on the committee and around the edges, was the opposite of everything we have been proud of as a nation.  The Democratic adherence to these leftist directives, these ancient pagan mandates, proved to be too ugly to countenance.  No doubt, decent Democrats all over the nation looked in that national mirror and were as horrified as the rest of us were.  The voting booth is the only way we have to wash that venomous taste from our mouths.

Thou shalt destroy all vestiges of family.  Democrats believe in taxing citizens so intensely that both parents have to earn a wage.  Their public school curricula train children to revere government rather than parents.  Democrats champion sexual deviance and prepare children to indulge their sexuality from a young age.  They champion abortion at all stages of fetal development and deny the differences between the sexes to produce maximum societal confusion.  When the family fails, then government can take over.  One can see the resemblance to the ancient phallic cults.
  6. Thou shalt attack, provoke, ridicule, and kill whoever gets in your way.  Even when they don’t physically kill their political opponents, they kill their livelihoods, their reputations, their families.  This commandment gives modern Democrats an excuse to run conservatives out of restaurants, out of theaters, out of their homes.  Democrats can attack with impunity Republicans’ electronic privacy – Dems can spy, tap, intercept emails, whatever is necessary.  This commandment goes so far as to block any attempt their opponents can make to defend themselves – take their guns, take their knives, keep them vulnerable.  Remember – winning is everything because winning brings power.
  7. Thou shalt have any kind of sex with whomever, whenever, and wherever.  Refer back to the fifth commandment.  Societal chaos and desperation open the door to government control – i.e., power.
  8. Thou shalt legalize theft by authorizing the government to steal.  Big government requires big money to bribe voters, to keep them dependent, to be able to import new voters.  Under this command, law enforcement must be hamstrung to such an extent that property crimes can’t be enforced.  All ideas of private property must be squelched and socialism championed.
  9. Thou shalt bear false witness against thine enemies.  They make up elaborate stories of sexual deviance and financial malfeasance, of drunken orgies and high school shenanigans.  Though they condone such behavior among themselves, they feign horror and outrage at the supposed missteps of their opposition.  They gum up the operations of government with said allegations and erase all remembrance of innocence until proven guilt.  Winning, remember, is everything.
  10. Thou shalt envy, covet, and indulge all jealous attitudes, hating anyone who has accumulated more wealth, more power, or more fame than you have.  This is the engine the runs the whole thing.  Without envy, there is no discontent.  Where there is no discontent, there is little need of government.  Where there is little need of government, there is no accumulation of power.  If there is no accumulation of power, there is none for the party to grab and no wealth for the party to pocket.

The Press Confound the News in Their War Against the President

PRESIDENT TRUMP CONFOUNDS THE PRESS

by John Hinderaker  at PowerLine:

To hear the press tell it, President Trump is an unprecedented menace to the republic. Every day’s news is devoted to undermining him and his administration. Not just the New York Times and the Washington Post, but news outlets that once were regarded as relatively neutral, like the Associated Press, have made war on Donald Trump ever since his nomination for the presidency, if not before. Time after time, they have delivered blows they thought would be fatal. NBC’s leak of the Access Hollywood tape is one notorious instance among many. The Russia Hoax is another.

And our readers do not need to be reminded of Democratic politicians’ non-stop hysteria over the last 18 months.

Still, despite everything–despite his own occasional blunders as well as the unremitting hostility of all right-thinking people–Trump’s standing with the voters has barely been dented. His approval ratings move within a rather narrow range. At the moment, he is at 49% approval in the Rasmussen survey, the only rolling daily poll now being published, with 50% disapproving. Moreover, his “Approval Index”–the difference between strong approval and strong disapproval–stands at -7. That doesn’t sound great, but at the same point in his first term, Barack Obama’s Approval Index was -19.

The Democrats have yet to come to grips with the fact that so far, President Trump is more popular with voters than their idol Barack Obama. If they were more reflective, Democrats might wonder why this is so. I suppose it has to do with a booming economy, record low unemployment, especially among minorities and women, solid advances in foreign policy, and in general, a sense that we now have a president who is at least trying to advance American interests. To put America first, in other words.

If there is a Democratic politician who understands the appeal of economic success, strong foreign policy and a focus on the interests of American citizens, he is assiduously keeping his mouth shut. I am not aware of any dissenters in the Democratic ranks. Democrats are too focused on President Trump’s supposed illegitimacy to ponder why he has been successful.

In 2010, Republicans gained 63 seats in the House and took control of that chamber, and picked up six Senate seats. That was largely due to President Obama’s unpopularity, especially as reflected in the widely disliked “stimulus” package and Obamacare.

No one imagines that the Democrats will do anywhere near as well this year. But then, they don’t need to. I believe they only need 23 seats to take control of the House, and the GOP Senate majority is razor-thin. By historical standards, 23 seats is a very low bar for a president’s first midterm election.

When Republicans made massive gains in 2010, the press did not hail those midterm results as a repudiation of President Obama, such that he might be evicted from office or effectively neutered for the remainder of his term. Rather, they stuck steadfastly to their support for the president, heedless of his policy failures.

That won’t happen this year. If Democrats make modest gains, the press will hail them as a definitive repudiation of President Trump and his policies, and will redouble its efforts to incapacitate the administration.

None of this is fair, or makes any sense, objectively. But it is the skewed world we live in. The good news is that most voters are on to the Democrats’ game, and don’t care what the press says about the president or, frankly, much else. That is a very healthy development. Which suggests that if the Democrats manage to eke out control over one or both chambers of Congress in November, Trump’s supporters will be unfazed and the political battle will continue to rage.

Deep State, Obama, FBI, Open Borders Destroying America and the American Dream

The Deep State, Obama, and Destroying America

 

On April 22, national security adviser John Bolton said, “It’s Open Season for Foreign Influence Operations.  It’s not just Vladimir Putin’s Kremlin that is trying to influence our elections.  So are communist China and sharia-supremacist Iran.”

Vitriolic hatred of President Trump has sprung America into an Afghanistan-like “state of collapse, civil conflict, ethnic and disintegration locked in a self-perpetuating cycle that may be simply beyond outside resolution.”  An example is California versus America over energy.  California has chosen 100% renewable energy by 2045 when it’s proven that renewable energy doesn’t work on a scalable, affordable basis now or in the coming decades without immense fossil fuel backup and billions in taxpayer subsidies.

Thankfully, the United States embraced fracking, allowing the U.S. to overtake Russia and Saudi Arabia as the world’s number-one oil producer.  Meanwhile, California dooms its economy to poverty for its citizens with higher energy prices and depressed job growth.

This example illustrates that America’s democratic process is under attack, but it’s against each other and not from foreign interference.  Why?  Because if the Democrats take Congress, they will impeach President Trump and don’t have a plan to actually govern.  This is now Venezuelan-style socialism that only wants power.  These people – mostly unserious Democrats – “are vile, disgusting people.  There is no lie they won’t tell, no person they won’t smear to advance their agenda,” as evidenced by the Judge Brett Kavanaugh hearings.

They will return America back to the anemic growth it endured under Obama, and our enemies will only grow more emboldened.  America will go the way of California-type leaders like Tom Steyer and Gavin Newsom plus the lies coming from the #Resistance and #NeverTrump crowd.  Seemingly, this is exactly what the Deep State, the Democrats, establishment Republicans, and President Obama want.

According to Dr. Victor Davis Hanson, the Robert Mueller investigation is a mockery of justice full of Democratic partisans.  It was never intended to root out Russian collusion; instead, it is to take down the duly elected president, his family, and anyone associated with his past life.  Ask yourself, would this sham collusion narrative be happening if Hillary were in the White House?  Of course not.  Hanson is correct when he writes:

No President has ever faced impeachment for supposed wrongdoings alleged to have taken place before he took office.  With effort to go back years, if not decades, into Trump’s business and personal life, we are now in uncharted territory.

We will have a shooting, civil war on our hands if Trump is impeached over an investigation that has never proven beyond a reasonable doubt that Trump colluded with Russia.  The Democratic Party of Truman, Kennedy, FDR, Scoop Jackson, and Governor Pat Brown is gone.  Back then, Democrats wanted a thriving middle class, single-family homes, great schools to achieve upward mobility, and world-class infrastructure.  Now it’s spying on your political enemies through the unelected intelligence fiefdoms of the Deep State that Trump is trying to destroy.

Issues have come to light revealing the extent of Obama’s troubled presidency and former top officials reckless disregard for unlawfully spying on Trump and thousands of Americans that is destroying America.  Moreover, Obama’s glee at making a nuclear deal with Iran has unleashed Hell on the Middle East by creating a hegemonic Iran.  To illustrate, Politico did an extensive investigative report titled “The Secret Backstory of How Obama Let Hezbollah off the Hook,” because “[a]n ambitious U.S. task force targeting Hezbollah’s billion-dollar criminal enterprise ran headlong into the White House’s desire for a nuclear deal with Iran.”

Additionally, The Atlantic reported that Obama and former high-ranking intelligence officials knew that Iran and al-Qaeda were working together (Hazma, Osama bin Laden’s son, got married in Iran), and more damning was a 19-page document from the 2011 raid in Abbottabad, Pakistan that killed bin Laden, showing that “al-Qaeda and the Iranian Revolutionary Guards in Tehran touched on funding and arming the Sunni terror outfit so it could strike at American targets.”  Former CIA director Mike Pompeo “suggested” that this al-Qaeda-Iran pact was an “open secret during the Obama administration.”  Maybe these revelations are why the Deep State, Obama, Democrats, and negligent Republicans are trying to destroy Trump and the Rule of Law. It can certainly justify why Trump de-certified the Iran nuclear deal.

Unfortunately, “Obama did spy on Trump,” according to former CBS reporter Sharyl Attkisson.  She was also illegally spied on by the Obama administration for writing unflattering stories.  Ms. Attkisson then credibly alleges, “It means U.S. intelligence agencies secretly surveilled at least a half dozen Trump associates.  And those are just the ones we know about.”

Former senior-level Obama officials Susan Rice, James Clapper, John Brennan, Sally Yates, and Samantha Power all admitted to reviewing or “unmasking” political figures.  Obama intel agencies were caught “secretly monitoring Congressional conversations while the Obama administration negotiated the Iran nuclear deal.”  Brennan and Clapper were both found lying to Congress in 2013 and 2014.  And Ms. Attkisson is still fighting the Justice Department in a federal lawsuit over hacking her CBS computer, causing CBS to publicly announce:

Correspondent Sharyl Attkisson’s computer was hacked by “an unauthorized, external, unknown party on multiple occasions,” confirming Attkisson’s previous revelation of the hacking.

Global intelligence firm Stratfor verified this claim in a September 21, 2010 email:

John Brennan [then an Obama Homeland Security adviser] is behind the witch hunts of investigative journalists learning information from inside the beltway sources.

This Deep State behavior grew when the intelligence community “expanded its authority in 2011 so it can monitor innocent U.S. citizens.”  Then, in January 2016, a top-secret inspector general report “found the NSA violated the very laws designed to prevent abuse.”  Also in 2016, Obama officials “searched through intelligence on U.S. citizens a record 30,000 times up from 9,500 in 2013″ during an election year.  Two weeks before the 2016 presidential election, NSA officials before a FISA court hearing overseeing government surveillance “confessed they’d violated privacy safeguards with much greater frequency” than previously admitted.  The presiding judge accused the NSA of “institutional lack of candor and a very serious Fourth Amendment issue.”

If it weren’t for Congressman Devin Nunes, chairman of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence the public would be in the dark “about the unethical and often illegal behavior of the FBI, CIA, National Security Agency and Department of Justice” under the former administration.  Chairman Nunes also exposed the politicized leak of former NSC director Michael Flynn’s contact with the Russian ambassador in a January 2017 Washington Post column.  Nunes’s investigation further uncovered that Clinton’s campaign paid for an unverified dossier in 2016 from former British intelligence officer Christopher Steele that was used by Obama’s FBI and Justice Department to obtain a warrant from the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISC) for illegal surveillance on former Trump campaign aide Carter Page.

What Brennan, Clapper, Rice, and others have done is “monetize access” to classified intelligence for political and private financial gain.  Obama intelligence chiefs – and now the Deep State – weaponized intelligence.  Past and present high-ranking intelligence officials believe that it was correct to revoke Brennan’s security clearances and that others should follow.  These Obama-era officials and current Deep State employees are pursuing political agendas via the anti-Trump media, with the U.S. Department of Justice standing back and doing nothing while America is destroying Trump, the office of the president and the freest, greatest country in the history of mankind.
