HuffPo Laments That One Year In, ‘Trump Is Winning’

AP/SusanWalsh

by Thomas D. Williams, PH.D.

In the midst of much hand-wringing and anguished sighs, the Huffington Post has announced to its readers that after his first year in office “Trump Is Winning.”

“This is one of the hardest things I’ve ever had to write and admit,” begins Earl Ofari Hutchinson, “Trump is winning.”

Hutchinson, an author and co-host of the Al Sharpton Show, observes that according to numerous indicators the Trump presidency is a success, beginning with his delivery of a long list of campaign promises.

Among Mr. Trump’s many victories, Hutchinson enumerates Mick Mulvaney’s appointment to head the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, Neil Gorsuch’s contribution to the Supreme Court, Scott Pruitt’s work at the EPA, Trump’s support of fossil fuels to make America energy independent, the RNC backing of judge Roy Moore in Alabama, the fizzling out of Russiagate, the passage of the tax reform bill, and the record-level stock market.

Yet all of these wins are small potatoes compared to Trump’s three top victories, Hutchinson claims.

First, the President has successfully taken charge of the Republican Party. “He is the point man for GOP policy and issues and, in a perverse way, the spur to get action on them,” Hutchinson notes.

Second, Mr. Trump has managed to energize his base and keep their loyalty. The “overwhelming majority” of Republican voters continues to back him, Hutchinson admits. “This is the voter loyalty that buys a lot of support from the GOP establishment even as they flail him or shake their head in disgust at his antics,” he writes.

Third, Trump has successfully harnessed the mainstream media for his own purposes. “He remains a ratings cash cow for the networks and makes stunning copy for the print media,” Hutchinson complains. “He knew that from day one of his presidential bid and he knows it even more now. He will continue to suck the media air out of everything that the Democrats do and try to do.”

While praising the war on Trump waged by the New York Times and “other liberal print publications,” Hutchinson recognizes that for much of the Trump base these papers have lost all credibility. “So the withering criticism of Trump in these publications is tantamount to a wolf howling in the wind,” he says.

Ship of Fools

 

Many folks in media are definitely on the Ship of Fools. This week the Lame Stream Media is proving (yet again) that they are either…

a) totally inept
b) DNC operatives thinly disguised as “journalists”
c) suffering from Trump Derangement Syndrome
d) all the above

Our propaganda pundits are working overtime to crank out FAKE NEWS. Thankfully, the New Media calls them out on their lies in near real time.

The Democratic Party is in decline. They have no real leaders on the horizon and those running the show are hopelessly corrupt. The Clintons are criminals. Nancy Pelosi is losing her mind. Joe Biden is a laughable pervert. Podesta practices Satanism. Bernie Sanders isn’t a ‘progressive.’ Stop calling him that. He’s nothing more than a communist who pocketed donations from the common man. Bernie knew he had no chance against the DNC machine. Despite the rigging and abuse he faced, he endorsed his abuser. Perez, the new DNC chairman is a ‘nut job.’ Maxine Waters is a raving lunatic. Read more at grrrgraphics.com.

President Trump Rally – Pensacola – Dec. 8th 2017 – MAGA

 

President Trump held a Make America Great Again rally tonight in Pensacola. Yes, he spoke about his support for Judge Roy Moore in next Tuesday’s Alabama U.S. Senate race, but the bulk of his speech dealt with his first year (almost) in office and his vision for the future.

So please don’t rely on LameStream radio and TV snippets, or the fish wrapper print media, and take the time to watch our president’s speech when you can. I don’t think you will be disappointed. Thanks.

Bannon Decimates Mitt Romney At Rally for Roy Moore

Breitbart News Executive Chairman Stephen K. Bannon decimates two-time failed presidential candidate Mitt Romney after Romney’s anti Roy More tweet.

 

Bannon spoke at a rally for Alabama Republican senatorial candidate, Judge Roy Moore on Tuesday night. This video covers the portion where he dealt with Mitt Romney. Transcript below:

Let’s talk about another beauty, Willard Mitt Romney. Now I want you to understand something, it was Willard Mitt Romney’s comment yesterday, his tweet or whatever it was, that and the only reason I’m going there Mitt, because he started it. Mitt you had to go there. All the insults you made about the president of the United States, put all that in back of us. You know he interviewed you for Secretary of State, everything’s fine. But no, Judge Moore’s got to run, you got to jump in here.

Honor. What did he say yesterday? Honor and integrity? Honor, that Judge Moore lacked honor and integrity. And that’s why he couldn’t vote for him, right? Couldn’t support him. Couldn’t support him.

Judge Moore is a graduate of the United States Military Academy at West Point. Judge Moore served his country, in one of the toughest wars we’ve ever had, Vietnam. And he went over there, he went over there, for his country, his state and his family. Mitt, that’s honor and integrity. And by the way Mitt, while we’re on the subject of Vietnam and honor and integrity, you avoided service brother, right? You didn’t serve, Good. Ok Mitt, Mitt. Here’s how it is brother: Now the college deferments, it’s you know, that’s, that’s how it is. You know, we can debate that, but you hid behind your religion. You went to France to be a missionary when guys were dying in rice paddies in Vietnam. Do not talk to me about honor and integrity.

And now I’m going to get personal. You had, you ran for commander-in-chief. You had five sons. Not one day of service in Afghanistan and Iraq. We have 7,000 dead, and 52,000 casualties. And where were the Romneys during those wars? You want to talk about honor integrity brother, bring it. Bring it down here to Alabama. You have the guts to get on the stage, you have the guts to get on a stage of a man that served in Vietnam. And you expect us to believe honor integrity?

Judge Roy Moore has more honor and integrity in that pinky finger then your entire family has and his whole DNA. And you know why he’s on Judge Moore. He’s still bitter about Donald Trump. Embrace it Mitt. He is President of the United States, and commander-in-chief of the armed forces, something you so miserably failed at.

GOP Preps Contempt Resolution for Top FBI, DOJ Officials

by Susan Ferrechio

The House Intelligence Committee on Tuesday will begin writing a resolution holding top FBI officials in contempt of Congress after the agency missed a Monday deadline to turn over key evidence the committee has been seeking for months.

“We are moving forward with the contempt resolution,” House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes, R-Calif., told the Washington Examiner Tuesday morning. He added that the panel is still negotiating with FBI and Justice Department officials to get the requested documents.

Nunes has accused the FBI and Department of Justice of a “months-long pattern … of stonewalling and obstructing this committee’s oversight work.”

Those accusations boiled over during the weekend, after stories were leaked to the New York Times and Washington Post saying that FBI agent Peter Strzok, a key investigator in the Trump-Russian probe, was removed from the Russia probe after exchanging text messages critical of Trump to another FBI agent he was involved with romantically. Republicans had been seeking information about why he was removed, but were never told anything by FBI or Justice Department directly.

Nunes had also been seeking information about the FBI and Justice Department’s use of the Steele dossier, which contains damning but unverified information about President Trump. Read the rest at washingtonexaminer.com.

Former Independent Counsel Slams ‘Brazen and Blatant Political’ Investigation of President Trump

by Daniel J. Flynn6 Dec 2017338

A former independent counsel laments the “arrogance” of special counsel Robert Mueller in stacking his legal team investigating the president with partisans in an exclusive interview with Breitbart News.

Strzok earned his dismissal from Mueller’s team after the special counsel learned of anti-Trump text messages the FBI agent sent to an alleged paramour.

Strzok allegedly played a major role in changing the language in James Comey’s report on Hillary Clinton’s server from describing her as “grossly negligent” to “extremely careless,” a significant alteration given the former phrase approximating the language in the law possibly catalyzing an indictment. Later, according to CNN, he signed the document launching the investigation into alleged interference by the Russians in the 2016 presidential election and personally questioned former Trump administration national security advisor Michael Flynn. In other words, a politically-biased investigator played leading roles in two of the most politically-charged cases in recent times.

 Mueller dismissed Strzok from his investigation. But he still holds a position at the FBI.

“He didn’t get fired,” diGenova points out. “He just got demoted.”

DiGenova faults Mueller for stacking his team with other partisans when the situation called for compiling a group of professionals without the appearance of an agenda beyond the law. When diGenova served as independent counsel in the early 1990s, he notes that professionalism rather than partisanship motivated his hiring practices. Read the rest at breitbart.com.

Under the Bus: ABC News Conveniently Leaks Its Fury Over Brian Ross’s Fake News

Rainmaker Photo/MediaPunch/IPX

by John Nolte

In an apparent effort to salvage its reputation, a convenient and timely leak sprung up at ABC News Monday regarding disgraced reporter Brian Ross. And now, thanks to this convenient and timely leak, the whole wide world knows that ABC News president James Goldston has never “felt more rage and disappointment and frustration that I felt through this weekend and through the last half of Friday.”

If you think that is unfair or cynical, you should know that back in 2012, when Ross disgraced himself by falsely blaming a movie theater shooting on a Tea Partier, Goldston’s conference call of righteous rage was also conveniently leaked, that time to the left-wing Politico.

This convenient and timely leak somehow ended up at the left-wing CNN.

As we all now know, Brian Ross, one of the most notorious fake news-spreaders not currently working at CNN or the Washington Post, tanked the stock market Friday morning with the outrageously false claim that President Trump’s former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn was prepared to testify that candidate Trump ordered him to get in contact with the Russians.

No one at all familiar with the left-wing Ross believed that bunk for a second, but stocks still tanked because this bombshell could only mean one thing — that Trump is in fact guilty of colluding with the Dirty Reds and was therefore on the road to impeachment.

There was just one little problem — it was not true. Not even close. It was President-elect Trump who told his incoming national security advisor to contact the Russians, not candidate Trump, and that difference is all the difference —  is the difference between Trump acting responsibly and acting impeachably (if that is not a real world thank the public schools).

Anyway, because ABC News is a real news organization committed to objective truth, it took the left-wing network seven hours(!) to issue a “clarification.” Not a correction, mind you. Not a retraction. A clarification; which is exactly what we have come to expect from the Clinton Foundation Network.

 And so, in order to prove itself a real news organization buried in real journalists committed to all that is holy and righteous about journalism, ABC News punished Ross by … giving him four weeks off (over the holidays) without pay.

Oh, no, not that briar patch.

Naturally, that so-called punishment did not go over very well with those of us who do not cocktail and backslap in the velvet, high-rise salons populated by our media elite — you know, us Deplorables  who are actually held accountable when we do things like, say, tank the stock market with fake news.

Mchelle Malkin on Fox and Friends Sunday

On Sunday’s edition of Fox and Friends, conservative firebrand, author, activist and Fox News contributor, Michelle Malkin, demolished the radical left’s open borders and sanctuary policies, and blasted the verdict in the trial of the illegal alien accused of killing Kate Steinle. Video and transcript below:


Pete Hegseth: President Trump tweeting just 17 minute minutes ago about Brian Ross and the implications. He tweeted this: People who lost money when the stock market went down 350 points based on the false and dishonest reporting of Brian Ross of @ABC News. He’s has been suspended, should consider hiring a lawyer and suing ABC for the damages this bad reporting has caused many millions of dollars.

Rachel Campos Duffy: This is why he does not give up his Twitter feed. They tell him to put it away and he doesn’t because this is the kind of power he has maybe we’ll get some lessons.

Pete Hegseth: We’ll bring in that Michelle Malkin now, host of Michelle Malkin Investigates on CRTV.

So Michelle, I mean there’s been a lot of criticism, and rightfully so of fake news coming from Brian Ross, about the implications of the bombshell report they’re caught with collusion. President’s saying “Hey, those actions have consequences. The market went down 350 points, maybe they should sue?” What do you think?

Michelle Malkin:  I think he’s absolutely right. President Trump is making a very salient point that fake news hits people in the pocketbook. And I think uh, I think he’s half in jest here, but there is a serious point. And if there were people who were going to file a suit, they should file suit not only against the news division of ABC but also the entertainment division because Joy Behar’s singular crowing about this fake news was probably responsible for a huge portion of those losses.

Pete Hegseth:  Absolutely well go ahead Ed.

Ed Henry:  You know what I wonder also, because we’ve been talking about not just the ramifications of the false report from Brian Ross which ABC is now trying to take responsibility for, but the fact that this breaking overnight that an FBI agent has been pulled from the Mueller probe, because of these texts he sent that are anti-Trump and pro-Clinton and it turns out, wait a second: Where was he at the FBI before? He was one of James Comey’s cronies, and sat in for the interview with Hillary Clinton, the interview that you’ll remember two or three months before James Comey was writing the statement exonerating her before the interview.

Michelle Malkin:  Yeah. it really stinks, and I’m glad that information is, is coming out, and it’s busting up all of the narrative and again, it is reinforcing president Trump’s point that so much of this fake narrative about Russian conspiracies is deflection. And in fact it maybe even be with psychological projection because there, it seems as though the conspiracies are within the deep state to try and set up Trump and  perpetuate all of these lies. I do have to say also about Brian Ross, that over the course of his career, he has been responsible for many journalistic errors and examples of malpractice. And curiously, every single one of these errors always airs on the side of attacking conservatives and undermining  Republicans. Why is that? And why are there so many double standards in the way that ABC, or NBC or CBS get away with these acts of malpractice and political agendas time and time again? A 30-day suspension, that’s a joke. You know what I call that? Holiday break.

Rachel Campos Duffy:  Well listen Michelle, we know you’ve been following the Kate Steinle case, and the very outrageous verdict there. I know I’ve been talking to so many friends of mine. I live in Middle America. They’re outraged. Tell me if you think that this verdict will actually have an impact on the whole issue of sanctuary cities, because we have a president for the first time who is bringing up the topic of sanctuary cities, and we have this outrageous example in this verdict.

Michelle Malkin:  Well Rachel, I do have more hope than I have had in the last 25 years that I’ve covered these issues, that there will be lasting change. But it really has to come from all sides, and it can’t just come from Washington. There needs to be a grassroots revolt within these cities, these so-called sanctuary cities that I call outlaw cities. And the chances that that there will be such a revolt in an open borders mecca like San Francisco, are low. I am really curious about whether jurors are going to speak out, because I want to know what was in their mindset. We know for a fact that the court did not allow in that trial, any information about the deportations. That might have had a huge impact on their thinking about, about the case. And the other thing too, is this is a systemic problem. It’s not just the trial court level where we have issues. It’s the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals, it’s all of these liberal federal judges in all of these liberal sanctuary cities, that are granting rights to illegal aliens that American citizens of illegal alien crime do not have.

Pete Hegseth:  Is that a fair question to ask? Would a US citizen been given the same set of deferential treatment as was given to a 5-time deported illegal immmigrant?

Michelle Malkin:  Oh of course it’s the right question to ask. You know I’ve followed so many cases where families who are the heirs and the survivors of illegal alien crime victims who have died, have tried to go to court to sue, to hold government officials criminally and civilly liable. This happened in Houston when Houston Police Department officer, Rodney Johnson was killed by an illegal alien in that sanctuary city and his widow was denied something called standing. She wasn’t even allowed to bring her civil suit into court. How is this possible? We live in this bizarro land where we’re conferring more legal rights to illegal aliens and foreigners. How is it that these foreigners outside this country are stymieing President Trump from enforcing visas and policies and extreme vetting? Only in America.

Ed Henry:  Yeah and you talk about narratives, there’s a narrative out there when every time ICE goes in on a deportation, there are many in the media, not all, but many will say it’s ICE that’s overstepping, that they’re trampling on right somehow. And there’s another narrative by the way, you can weigh in on that, but another narrative in Washington, is we look at what happens in the aftermath of the Steinle verdict, which is that there’s been a narrative that the Republicans have a weak hand going into the end-of-the-year negotiations over DACA for example. And that somehow the Democrats have a strong hand. And they’re going to be able to jam DACA through, codify it by law and there’s nothing the Republicans can do. Does the Steinle case change it at all, where maybe Republicans get a spine and say look, if we’re gonna do DACA, if we’re gonna keep the children of illegals in this country and you’re going to work through that, there also going to be some tough border control?

Michelle Malkin:  Yeah well let me talk about noxious open borders narratives. It’s Nancy Pelosi, who a couple years ago was attacking ICE agents and she used the word, quote Un-American, to talk about their commitment to enforcing the rule of law. Unbelievable! I’ll tell you what’s even more unbelievable and this is relevant to your question about the politics in the Beltway. The fact is that we have open borders Republicans, who are doing the bidding of big business, who have an interest in cheap labor and undermining our immigration laws, and they’re the ones who have been colluding with the radical identity politics ideologue of the left. We would not have open borders if it wasn’t for this bipartisan collusion, and if you look at the people who are supporting this DACA move, it’s not just radicals like Luis Gutierrez who is now planning a run for president. It’s also people like his good friend Paul Ryan.

Ed Henry:  You know what, we finally finally found collusion.

Michelle Malkin:  And there we go, that’s right. We found the conspiracy.

Pete Hegseth:  And you know what, your larger point goes with what the president talks about. Either you have a sovereign country with real citizens, with citizens that matters, or it’s all out the window. And that’s what the left is not.

Michelle Malkin:  As I say – we’ve turned into a sanctuary nation and we need to take this country back. That’s why President Trump was elected.

Pete Hegseth, Ed Henry:  Michelle Malkin, thanks for joining.

Judge Jeanine Opening Statement – Illegal Alien Killer of Kate Steinle Acquitted


Partial transcript: The agenda of the lawless left was satisfied when a jury acquitted Jose Ines Garcia Zarate of all homicide charges, murder and involuntary manslaughter and the sanctuary zealots of San Francisco are still patting themselves on the back. It’s unfortunate that Kate Steinle, a beautiful 32 year old young woman, simply walking along a pier on a sunny day with her dad, was gunned down by an illegal seven-time convicted felon, legally deported five times, that she had to leave this world in her father’s arms begging him to help her. She had the right as an American citizen. To life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. She had the right to be protected by her government. Instead Zarate and not God decided when she would die. Instead San Francisco decided his criminal rights were more important than her safety…

NFL to Contribute $100 Million to Social Justice Causes as Part of Anthem Protest Surrender

AP Photo/Ross D. Franklin

By Dylan Gwinn

The NFL’s sellout to their anthem-protesting players is starting to look a lot more like a buyout. According to ESPN, the league will offer nearly $100 million to causes designed to promote “social justice change.”

In a move unlike anything seen from a major American sports league, the league will offer the money in hopes that it will end the ratings-killing protest movement begun by Colin Kaepernick in the preseason of 2016.

According to ESPN:

The NFL’s multifaceted offer earmarks at least $89 million over a seven-year period for both national and local projects, according to documents reviewed by ESPN. On the national level, owners this year will allocate $5 million, with their commitment growing annually and maxing out at $12 million per year from 2021 through 2023. At the local level, owners will put up $250,000 annually and expect players to match that amount, totaling $500,000 for each team. Players and owners can exceed that amount if they choose, with no matching requirement. In addition, there would be other fundraising opportunities, including telethons and auctions of jerseys worn in games.

If the players approve their end of the deal, a vote on the appropriation of the money could come as early as March. Commissioner Roger Goodell is believed to have the support of the owners to proceed with the deal.

As far as how the money would be distributed, ESPN reports:

National funding would be allocated accordingly: 25 percent to the United Negro College Fund, 25 percent to Dream Corps and 50 percent to the Players Coalition, which has filed 501(c)(3) and 501(c)(4) paperwork for nonprofit status as a fiscally sponsored project. This week, the coalition hired the Hopewell Fund to oversee and advise the group, which hopes to work with grassroots and nonprofit organizations in its areas of focus.

Under the proposal, money at both the national and local level would provide grants for nonprofit organizations focused on law enforcement and community relations, criminal justice reform and education reform.

A working group of five players, five owners (or owners’ representatives) and two NFL staff members would help identify future initiatives to pursue.
