The State of the Democrats & Their Complicit Media, Firmly United in All Things Anti-Trump, Anti-Republican: (Part One)

(Editors note: This post will be a series of explanations and observations to the state of the Democratic Party, their fully backed and complicit Media, and the many factions of the liberal left, working  in concert, (both out front and in the shadows), to facilitate in the total obstruction of the party currently in control of our government.  Part One basically explains/frames who the immediate Opposition is, Democrats, and their unique relationship with an obsessed media resolved to resist and reject all things presented by this new government.  Parts 2 & 3 will delve further into the parties’ involvement, part and partial of the left’s movement, who are working in the clandescent shadows to thwart the direction in which the country is moving, including the Establishment D.C. “government”---both Democrats and Republicans---who prefer to maintain the status quo in Washington.  With advent of the new media, the battle of the minds and ideologies has never been so exposed to the pundits and political junkies of the Democratic Left, who enjoyed a majority of the Media’s output for decades---virtually unopposed.  Those days are over.)  

Have you noticed, (not unexpectedly), that since Hillary Clinton lost the election, the Democrats, and her fawning liberal media has an instant negative retort or derogatory statement “pre-prepared” for any and all propositions put forth by our Republican-run government?

Why doesn’t CNN, MSNBC, and the rest of the anti-Trump Liberal Media just come out of the closet and admit they’re just another wing of the liberal-left resistance party?  

Politically, the Democrats are boxed into their own demagoguery.  For eight years, all you heard from Democrats, (and by extension, their mouthpiece media), was how Republicans refused work with President Obama, or his policies, as he attempted to swing the nation further to the left.  Fast forward to today, and it’s a complete reversal.  The voting base of the Democratic Party are insisting, no demanding, that every Democrat MUST RESIST with every bone in their frail bodies.  Any form, or appearance of compromise, (by any Democrat), is met with the threat of immediate expulsion from the party.

The mantra of the Democratic Left is, “we must resist---at all cost”.

This, [attitude], leaves the Democratic leadership, Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi, in the position of an opposition party resolved to reject any and all legislation presented to the body.  The consideration that a new law might benefit a majority of Americans does not matter with the left---it must be rejected outright because, well, we’re Democrats---end of story?

Well, not quite.  The complicit, (and hypocritical), Liberal Media stands firmly behind the Democrats’ every move.  Gleefully and with sheer delight of their liberal-left readership/viewers, the New York Times, the Washington Post, the Associated Press, the Alphabet Networks, (and the list goes on and on), joins in the cascade of opposition to all things Trump and the Republican Party.  The Liberal Media sees no irony in their own 8-year argument that a party opposed to a liberal socialist ideology might have a credible voice, instead of becoming vilified in every publication as the enemy of the state, bordering on sedition, and deserving of their, [the Media’s], ire and admonition---toleration, civil debates and discussion be damned.  Today, the Liberal Media almost condones the actions of the far left’s “right” to violently protest, destroy public property, and most importantly, put an end to the First Amendment when it does not agree with the left’s ideology.

And make no mistake, just like the Democrats, this medium is still clearly in a state of shock that Hillary Clinton is not in the White House.  Three-plus months after Trump’s inauguration, this entire body are still in the denial and anger stage---with the acceptance of reality basically unattainable in the foreseeable future.  To expect the Democrats or their Liberal Media to act in a rational, analytical, intelligent, (forget logical or objective), way to advance societies’ needs, ambitions, and dreams of prosperity and independence, is a delusional aberration of their intentions, and secondary to their mission, which is to control all lives under the direction of a central and socialist-minded government. 

Democrats, and the established Liberal Media see themselves as the guardians of this perverted and twisted ideology---soundly rejected by the people of this nation since the advent of ObamaCare, the federally mandated instruction that the people must buy a product or face exhaustible and debilitating financial retribution.

Since the day ObamaCare was shoved down the throats of the American public, both the Democrats, and their complicit media have failed miserably to understand the veracity of an angered electorate, who have refused to comply with this sick ideology that only a central federal government knows what’s best for its people.  Given the results of a series of elections, 2010, 2014, and 2016, one would think they would “get the message”.  Clearly, they do not.

Caltrans: 101 will not be re-opened this weekend





LEGGETT, Calif. - Highway 101 will not be reopened this weekend and there are no local detours available, according to Caltrans District 1.

Officials say travel plans should include detouring over onto Interstate 5 via Highway 20, Highway 36, or Highway 299 to loop back towards Highway 101 on the other side of the closure. These detours could take upwards of seven hours.  

According to Caltrans District 1, work is progressing at both ends of the slide north of Leggett in Mendocino County this morning. 

Caltrans is evaluating whether the north end of the slide is stable enough to begin work safely through the night. 

If the slide is stable enough for work at night this would allow Caltrans contractor to work around the clock to get the highway reopened. 

Specialized equipment to help in removing debris will be airlifted next week, according to officials.

Caltrans District 1's best estimate in the reopening of Highway 101 to one way traffic control is sometime mid-to-late next week.

YES, OBAMA "WIRETAPPED" TRUMP---WITH A WHOLE LOT A HELP FROM HIS "FRIENDS"

As the Liberal-"we hate Trump"-mainstream media mysteriously became silent after months of "Trump's Team Colluded With the Russians", (an accusation the U.S. Senate, the House, and the Media's top investigators can't find a single hint of), political pundits wondered, why the sudden silence?

For a two solid weeks after Trump's infamous Saturday morning tweet stating "Obama "wiretapped" Trump Tower", the media went wall to wall with headlines that the newly elected President had absolutely no proof or evidence of such an outrageous statement.  And, they, [the anti-Trump Media], demanded evidence.

Yet, when House intelligence chairman Devin Nunes actually found credible evidence, released it to the press, and then passed it on to Trump administrators, the media immediately attacked Nunes for compromising the House investigation, and demanded he recuse himself from his job.  How could Nunes possibly do his job, objectively, if he shared facts with our President?  Never mind that his counter-part, Adam Schiff was conducting his own partisan witch-hunt, supplying and releasing unsubstantiated media provided garbage to the public.  Not long after, Schiff, the Democrats, and most importantly, the mainstream media fell silent.

Enough with the Suspense!

Fast forward to yesterday, March 17th, and John Nolte at the Daily Wire exposes the whole truth about who was "wiretapping" Donald Trump, and for how long:

BOMBSHELL Report: Entire Western World Helped Obama WIRETAP Trump

"If you are wondering why our national media has pretty much dropped the whole Trump-Is-A-Russian-Manchurian-Candidate thing, it is because the naked truth about the Obama administration's chilling spying -- something the media has covered up for months -- is finally coming to light. Last week, both The Washington Post and The New York Times quietly reported that the Obama administration had "wiretapped" (their word, not mine) a Trump staffer.


The Trump-hating Guardian then dropped another bombshell, the news that pretty much every Western intelligence agency in the world was aiding and abetting the Obama administration's unbelievable and unprecedented (Nixon only wanted to do this) abuse of power against a political opponent":
Over the next six months, until summer 2016, a number of western agencies shared further information on contacts between Trump’s inner circle and Russians, sources said. 
The European countries that passed on electronic intelligence – known as sigint – included Germany, Estonia and Poland. 
Australia, a member of the “Five Eyes*” spying alliance that also includes the US, UK, Canada and New Zealand, also relayed material, one source said. 
Another source suggested the Dutch and the French spy agency, the General Directorate for External Security or DGSE, were contributors.
Nolte goes on to explain in detail how these alliances worked together, why Judge Napolitano was suspended, then quickly back on the network, and how the news media, (the New York Times, the Washington Post, and the U.K. Guardian), supplied/revealed how and why, (with all this worldly intelligence searching for collusion), never found one scintilla of evidence of collusion, but did reveal who was spying on Trump:

“In other words, the whole world was spying on Trump, not just the Obama administration, and even with all of these resources the Democrats and their media got exactly squat. There is no evidence of any wrongdoing between Team Trump and Russia. There is, however, a growing pile of evidence that Team Barry needs to be investigated by Congress and the Justice Department.”

Read the rest of Nolte's report here, because you won't find it in the mainstream news.  They're "quietly" working behind the scenes to find another distracting headline to take the public's minds off the fact that some one, (or many), should be looking for indictments coming in the mail---very soon.

President Trump's Strike on Syria Met with Consensus Approval---Liberal Media Befuddled

Just days after the Trump administration sends a clear message---to the world---that the use of chemical weapons will not be tolerated, the American Alt-Left Anti-Trump Liberal Media begins their traditional attacks on the President.

Let’s be clear, NOTHING President Trump does--in the eyes of CNN, MSNBC, THE NY SLIMES, THE WASHINGTON COMPOST, and others---can be reported as a positive action, or in the best interest of this nation.  NOTHING.  As for advising the President on National Security measures, the ALT-LEFT MEDIA will be the first to offer their own authoritative opinions on foreign policies. 

CONGRESSIONAL AUTHORITY REQUIRED?

Politically, this “single action” was met with overwhelming support  from Congress, (with the exception of Hillary’s VP, Senator Tim Kaine and Republican Rand Paul), both who questioned the President’s constitutional authority on the military strike.

Further, since politicians follow national polling, (before taking any kind of stand, negative or positive), the 57% approval of Mr. Trump’s strike, muted many of Trump’s political adversaries---for the time being.  Add to this approval, the support from U.S. Allies around the world, Democrats and the anti-Trump Media are at an impasse.

The current consensus among many of the politicians is, this strike was o.k., but do it again, and we’ll need to “approve it” first.

RED LINES GAIN POPULARITY…….

The Sun reported that a joint command centre in Syria said: ‘What America waged in an aggression on Syria is a crossing of red lines. From now on we will respond with force to any aggressor or any breach of red lines from whoever it is and America knows our ability to respond well.’

Got that?  From “now on”, we’ll respond to any interference in our private civil war, where we’ve invited Russia and Iran to help decimate our opposition population---by any means necessary.

I would submit that since Putin had a two-hour notice that the Tomahawks were inbound, (and did nothing to stop them), he must have decided Trump's measured response was inevitable, and even perhaps, reasonable, given the entire world had witnessed the gassings, and were demanding a response.

At this point, the alt-left anti-Trump Media will have an extremely hard time keeping their false narrative alive that Putin put Trump in office, ie, "they collectively colluded" to defeat Hillary, when President Trump has thrown a monkey wrench into Putin's, (and the Iranian's), plans to keep Assad in power.

Currently, no one in the Trump Administration has insinuated any form of escalation of U.S. military forces in Syria. Nikki Haley at the U.N. has warned, appropriately, there "could be" more strikes on Assad's government "if" chemical weapons are deployed again.

The Russians, Iranians, Assad's Government, and our own biased Liberal Media will have to deal with Trump's ultimatums.  The possibilities are endless on how they will respond, while the entire world is watching to see who blinks first.

Chess anyone?

SUPREME COURT NOMINEE GORSUCH ON TAP FOR CONFIRMATION NEXT WEEK




Wednesday, March 29th, 2017.……… and the Democrats are still Losers

Little Chucky Schumer says Neil Gorsuch didn’t meet his liberal progressive standards for a Supreme Court nominee, so he’s urging all of his Democrat[ic] colleagues to vote against President Trump’s selection.  The Senate Judiciary Committee is set to vote next Monday, with the full Senate vote expected later in the same week.

Yet, these Senate Democrats seem to have “selectively-short” memories.  

In 2006, Neil Gorsuch was confirmed to the 10th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals without a single dissenting vote.  Among those who approved Mr. Gorsuch, (in a voice vote, with not one objection), includes Little Chucky himself, then Senators Barack Obama & Joe Biden, and current Senators Dianne Feinstein, (ranking member of the Senate Committee on the Judiciary), Minority Whip Dicky Durbin, Senior Senator Patrick Leahy, Debbie Stabenow, Robert Menendez, and Ron Wyden among others.  The full list of current Senate Democrats who voted FOR Gorsuch in 2006 is at this link

Oh, and did I mention, then Senator Hillary Clinton was also present at this voice-vote without an objection?

All in all, the butt-hurt Democrats are still pissed off because 1), their queen lost, 2), Obama’s selection of Merrick Garland was not considered, (referred by Democrats as “a stolen seat”, despite the hypocrites ignoring the “Biden Rule“), and 3), thanks to now departed Dirty Harry Reid, the explosive device known as the nuclear option leaves the Democrats virtually powerless going into the vote next week.

Never has the phrase “elections have consequences” carried so much weight.  Next week, those consequences will come to fruition no matter which path the Democrats choose----to filibuster or not.

One of the reasons Donald J. Trump is in the White House was because Republican voters saw the seriousness of this SC selection, (and future selections), to prevent the Court from to turning into Liberal Activist Arm for the Progressives.

Democrats entered this battle unarmed and unprepared because the pollsters and the Media told them there was nothing to worry about---Mrs. Clinton had this election “in the bag”.  I can’t help but wonder how unhinged the left will become by the end of next week, when “the losers” lose…………..again.

The Purging of Obama's Government----A Transition of Power

President Trump was well aware that the "peaceful transition of power", (that Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton only once claimed "it must happen in our democratic Republic"), would be a bit more difficult to complete with a shell-shocked Democrat Party and the liberal left media yet to accept reality.

Despite NO EVIDENCE, the Opposition Media, aka, the radical alt-left media is still driving their fake news mantra, insisting Mr. Trump's Campaign and the Russians defeated Hillary.  The Opposition Media's obsession could be described as a chronic schizophrenia as they continue to embarrass their profession.  Leading the way is the New York Times, the Washington Post, followed religiously by NBC and their far left cable net MSNBC, and CNN---the epitome of an obsessive "news outlet" yearning for the title of the king of propaganda news.

Meanwhile, the Schumer and Pelosi-lead Democrats are making no bones about participating in a functioning government---THEY WILL NOT.  The Party of Obstruction and disruption will not contribute to the well being of this nation or its people, and the voters will remember this fact when they go to the polls next year, proving once again they've learned nothing from the last few election cycles.

President Trump, (while putting up this opposition), has his own set of troubles still within his transitioning government. Classified material leaks coming from inside his government should be a serious concern by most Americans, but the alt-left media and most Democrats seem to relish on the borderline seditious actions.

On Friday, Attorney General Jeff Sessions has asked the remaining 46 U.S. attorneys, (Obama political appointees), to resign, (a purge completely typical and uniform of all incoming Presidents), yet the alt-left opposition media, specifically the New York Times, found this action "abruptly irritating". 

"Trump Abruptly Orders 46 Obama-Era Prosecutors to Resign"

Throughout the article, the Times obsessively uses the term abruptly, as if the move was some how out of the norm of transition governments.  It took the author 17 paragraphs to allow their readers to understand this normal procedure:

"It is not unusual for a new president to replace United States attorneys appointed by a predecessor, especially when there has been a change in which party controls the White House."

CNN jumped in on the fray with this headline and a few quotes from the indignant:

Anger mounts over handling of US attorney firings

“It is common for administrations to ask holdovers to step down, but what is less common is the abruptness of Friday's announcement.”

"The law enforcement source said it is understood that it's customary for a new administration to ask for resignations, but "you don't tell them to clean out their desks the same day effective midnight tonight. There are people traveling on official business -- are they supposed to turn into their cell phones today? Can they come into their office tomorrow to check email?" (CNN link not provided purposely)

Well shucks, most Americans and political junkies knew this "abrupt undertaking" was going to take place, but, in the minds of the Opposition Media, everything Mr. Trump does is sensationalized and "unusual".

As to the comment from CNN's "law enforcement source", yes, all government property must be turned in, no, you may not check the mail tomorrow, and yes, YOU'RE FIRED.

Trump and Sessions should also have every room these people occupied swept for bugging devices as this abrupt transition continues to purge the stench of Obama's leftovers.  

At this point, there should be nothing "peaceful" considered.

THE TIMELINE---DEFINED BY MARK LEVIN

TRUMP TOWER WIRETAPPED BY OBAMA GOVERNMENT?

It only took four Trump Tweets, (early, Saturday morning of March 4th, 2017), to erupt into a firestorm across the media airwaves and the internet, when President Trump flat out accused the Obama Administration of wiretapping the Trump Towers during a Presidential Election: 




With the revelation that a sitting President---of an opposing Party---could employ the powers within his administration to investigate any Presidential Candidate reeks of the "McCarthyism", as Mr. Trump has implied.  Where, and how this "action" came about, remains to be seen.  For the record, an Obama spokesman, Kevin Lewis, said: “President Obama nor any White House official ever ordered surveillance on any US citizen.”

The favorite line from the Liberal Opposition Media all day Saturday and early Sunday morning has been, "NO EVIDENCE FOUND", three words not written in the annals of this same media throughout the weeks of fabricated stories promoting the idea that the Trump campaign directly colluded with Russian Government operatives to defeat Hillary Clinton.

In a methodical and systematic process, (the day after Donald J. Trump was elected the 45th President of the United States), the suddenly out-of-power Democratic Party, the Washington D.C. Establishment apparatus, and a willingly complicit Alt-Left Media have mounted an unprecedented campaign to literally destroy all facets of an American Presidential Election.

The only thing that is painfully obvious is that the PEACEFUL TRANSITION OF POWER, (a sacred tradition of this Democratic Republic), is now in serious jeopardy of breaking down.

At the conservative website The Sparta Report, writer Patrick Pulatie lays out the similarities of the potential illegal actions of the Obama Administration and the Watergate Nixon Era.

“It would appear that history is repeating itself with Wiregate. Essentially the same general parties are involved, just operating in different roles. And another Constitutional Crisis is the coming impact of Wiregate, just like with Watergate.

As the attack on President Trump continues, I expect that we will be seeing more and more similarities to Watergate. The only hope of the Democratic Party is to continue the attacks upon the President, hoping that they can damage him and force a resignation. The problem for the Democrats is that every action that they take, it generates a stronger and much more devastating response from both Trump and his supporters and that results in further loss of ground for the Dems.”  (link)

Reports of this bombshell attack can also be found at Powerline here & here.  And, the Conservative Treehouse supplies an excellent timeline of Obama's Shadow Government.

And, of course, the Obama folks are denying any and all of Trump's accusations.  (I'll provide links to their denial-denials soon). 

In the light of this "WireGate" scandal---and the search for the "burglars"---I'm reminded (by a colleague), of this certain fact: The NSA is the White House.

Much more ahead............

Update: It appears the Trump administration is going to let this "pot of stew" simmering:

President Trump Addresses the Nation----Democrats Sit

Democrats Don’t Rise in Applause to defeat Radical Islamic Terrorism, Iranian Nuclear Missiles, or Supporting Israel.  Don’t rise for making health insurance policies accessible across state lines----reforming the disaster of ObamaCare.  Democrats don’t rise for school choice, or eliminating violence in our inner cities.  Democrats reluctantly rise in supporting our law enforcement agencies.  Democrats don’t rise on preventing illegal criminal aliens who murdered American citizens, or our police forces who protect all Americans.  Democrats reluctantly rise in increasing military spending and supporting our Armed Forces.  Despite a tribute to a fallen hero, (that got the longest ovation of the evening), Democrats had a hard time standing and applauding Ryan, a man who died in defense of our nation.  Democrats could not rise to hope for a better life, a better future for our children, and a stronger safer America.  They couldn’t wait to exit the chamber in haste.  And they do not represent the spirit of this great nation.


United, they sat.

The State of the Union---One Big Mess, Thanks to the Democrats, the Washington Bureaucrats and the Media

President Trump, (two words the Democrats and their complicit Media has yet to come to terms with), will address a Joint Session of Congress tonight in his first State of the Union.

Make no mistake, both the Democrats and the Mainstream Liberal Media are intent on insuring Mr. Trump fails in promoting his agenda through false narratives, conspiracy theories, and outright lies.

As I write this, (3:22 am, pacific time), CNN's Chris Cuomo is still pushing the theory that the Russians "elected" President Trump though a series of connections during his campaign.  Despite yesterday's press conference by the Chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, (Devin Nunes), stating that there is NO EVIDENCE of contact between Russia and the Trump campaign, Jeff Zucker's puppet, [Cuomo] is still in search of a lie that will produce a narrative to the contrary.

From the Washington Times:

“We still don’t have any evidence of them talking to Russians,” Mr. Nunes said as he briefed reporters. “As of right now, the initial inquiries I’ve made to the appropriate agencies, I don’t have any evidence.”

He said he’s interested in evidence, but it doesn’t appear the investigative agencies have it.

"I want to be very careful; we can't just go on a witch hunt against Americans because they appear in a news story," said Nunes (R-Tulare). "We still don't have any evidence of them talking to Russia."

The New York Times, citing anonymous U.S. officials, reported earlier this month that Trump campaign aides had “repeated” contacts with Russian intelligence, based on “phone records and intercepted calls.”

But, enough with the lamestream liberal media's bullshit lies. The New York Times, Washington Post, CNN, and others, have their agenda, (to defame Mr. Trump).  It's not working. The Liberal Media's digging their own grave, while literally imploding right before the public's eyes.  And, the delusional Democrats are already talking about impeachment.

The reality is, Donald J. Trump is this nation's President.  (Let that sink in Liberals)  He's moving boldly forward from a position of strength, leadership, and a resolve to make this country great again.  The Democrats, and their Media are scared stiff that Mr. Trump will indeed be successful---putting Americans first---ahead of the politics, and embarrassing lies from the Media.


We, the people, understand perfectly what is the agenda of the Democrats and Their Media.  And it's not in the best interest of the Nation.  Their divisive tactics of lies, (including the false racism accusations), and bogus yellow journalism by our American Media, is the direct effect of a liberal society that refuses to accept the results of a national election.  It's time for the "children" to grow up.

ANTI-TRUMP MEDIA APPALLED FOR NOT BEING INVITED TO PRESS GAGGLE

CNN, the New York Times, Politico, (and a few others who pretend to be a news media source*), were not invited to a Sean Spicer press gaggle after President Trump's blistering speech at CPAC, once again blasting the #fakenewsmedia.

Wolf Blitzer called it "a shocking development".

Since November 9th, the day Donald J. Trump was elected the 45th President of the United States, [of America]**, the liberal media has been on a full-fledged attack against the President.  Their biggest argument---he's not a legitimate president, because the Russians installed him.

The Mainstream Liberal Media wants us to forget that this media has regurgitated every Democrat talking point throughout the campaign, before and during the inauguration, and 24/7 since Mr. Trump officially took office.  Adding insult to injury, the Senate Democrats have deliberately obstructed, (and delayed) every Trump appointment to his cabinet.

There is no mistake or misunderstanding---the Democrats and their complicit Liberal Media are at war.

I might add that the far-left liberal wing of the Democrat Party has pushed even the moderates to accept their decision to not work with, or compromise with the Republican Congress’s & Trump’s agenda.

They have collectively decided to obstruct & oppose any and all legislation, appointments, or Trump directives by utilizing the lower Obama courts, ie suing for redress, (aka tying up all laws and legislation passed by a duly elected Congress).

Both the Democrats and their opposition media should be called out on the carpet by President Trump and a United Republican Front AND THE PEOPLE WHO ELECTED OUR PRESIDENT in a single collective voice.

Only in a United Front----a complete coalition dedicated to Trump’s agenda---can and will defeat the Democrat’s decision of total obstruction in thwarting the will of the people.  Draw the lines. Make the distinction of which side is working in the interest of ALL AMERICANS, versus the liberal left’s activist destructive tactics---the Sanders/Warren/Ellison wing of their party---who have stretched the patience of the people beyond the reasonable boundaries of civility or measured discourse.

Point out that it is the Democrat Party, (and their media) that’s advocating & promoting anarchy and unrest while not accepting the results of an American Election.  Enough is enough!

The tireless adage that “United We Stand, Divided We Fall” has never been more important to the life of this nation and its new direction.

We have staved off the liberal progressive socialist agenda and the Obama Transformation---by the skin of our teeth---but the fight has just begun.

You want to see a "real shocking development" Mr. Blitzer?  Keep telling lies.

* Buzzfeed, and the L.A. Times were also not invited.

** I highlighted this because that last time I checked, this was America, covered by primarily an American Media.  The dishonest liberal media providing discourse, division, and literally joining the Democrat Party as the opposition to Republicans and this President is not an American value, nor does it meet the journalistic standards of the 4th Estate.

The Shadow Government---It’s Just a Conspiracy Theory, Right?

I was going to write a short “simi-satirical” piece this morning to poke a little fun at the frenzied mainstream media.  Here’s where I began: 

“In the spirit of liberal media’s “we’ll publish or post anything if it hurts President Trump”, my sources tell me that there’s a memo circulating that these same “Elite Media Journalist”, (who have actively campaigned against Trump over the past two years), are colluding with the Establishment Beltway Elites, (many who have been defeated or retired from their positions in recent election cycles), to destroy and absolve the current President from his elected duties.”

Of course, there is no memo, and I have no sources. Like the Associated Press’s reporting of a memo that never reached the higher levels of Homeland Security, and, was NEVER SERIOUSLY CONSIDERED (claiming the President planned to call out the National Guard to round up illegal immigrants), AP chose to report this story as news.  

This is how today’s mainstream liberal media works: 1) find a document or a recording, 2) throw in a few unnamed sources to add “corroboration”/meat to the story, 3) produce an outrageous headline, and presto---instant anti-Trump.  And, when the AP produces the story, media outlets across the nation publish this crap.  Why fact-check an association with impeccable credibility and unquestionable journalism standards?

But, while attempting to describe the current intentions of our 4th Estate, I’ve gotten off the path of “the real story”---This ridiculous story of a SHADOW GOVERNMENT.

Low and behold, (while visiting my Facebook account), I came across this startling opinion piece in THE WALL STREET JOURNAL by David Roberts---a senior adviser to the Vietnam Group at Harvard’s John F. Kennedy School of Government---calling for a formation of a Shadow Cabinet:

A ‘Shadow Cabinet’ to Restrain Trump

Sharp critiques of extreme policies from eminent ex-officials.  

“We need to make America great again, and for that Donald Trump might be our man. For all the anxiety the White House has caused, brewing constitutional crises at home and anger abroad, Mr. Trump has opened a path to reunify this politically divided nation.

A “team of rivals” that transcends party lines, composed of eminent men and women, could rein in the administration. This bipartisan group, preferably endorsed by past U.S. presidents, would be made up of former cabinet members and heads of independent federal agencies. Inspired by the British Shadow Cabinet, it would be structured to mirror the official cabinet and would issue rapid, sharp critiques and cogent alternatives to the administration’s most dangerous policies.

By becoming a recognizable public fixture, the group would wield the clout necessary to compete with the White House’s megaphone, offering the disgruntled public a clear opposing stance rather than the disparate, and sometimes desperate, efforts today. The group would provide the opposition much-needed focus by identifying the most destructive policies and pronouncements: some examples from the first few weeks include antagonizing our allies, forcing through an ill-considered immigrant ban, undermining the judicial system, and politicizing the National Security Council……….”  (more at the link above, but there may be a pay wall)

Surprisingly impressive is the commentary (provided by the WSJ), where most responded with everything from “are you nuts” to “this is how dangerously far our left-wing academics have come to.”  I’ve supplied a few choice comments from the article:

“Mr. Roberts, you don't need a shadow cabinet! Just win the house/senate in 2018 and the presidency in 2020. That's how democracy works. It does not work by the diktats and the ukases of the elite.

What a bunch of baloney and blatherskite and waste of newsprint.

Mr. Roberts and the MSM have zero credibility given their utter silence and duplicity during the radical transformation during 8 years of Obama. For God's sake, this is a man who won the election convincingly and has not even been at his job 1 month. Today's press conference was epic in his takedown and exposure of MSM as tools of the left and carrying water for the left. Trump said what millions of conservatives have been afraid to say about the press.” ~ Manish Umarwadia

********************************** 

“And, this is from a "senior advisor" at the Kennedy School! Imagine, teaching sedition as a class at Harvard. Is it an elective, or a mandatory course? The "shadow government" suggested is the bi-partisan elite about which Trump spoke in his Inaugural Address. The Progressive/Administrative Statists have gone mad; they are in a deranged frenzy. (One good thing, we wouldn't have to look around or wonder who the cabal elitist are, they would be self-identified.) How sad it that we have wandered so far from allegiance to our Constitution and constitutional government.” ~ Nevin Mindlin

******************************* 

“A shadow cabinet with a large megaphone already exists in the opposition.  It consists of : New York Times, Washington Post, ABC, NBC and CBS.” ~ Steve Bragg

************************** 

Of course, Mr. Bragg left out numerous “other contributors” in this Shadow Government designed to thwart our current CONSTITUTIONALLY ELECTED PRESIDENT.  

The next time some one on the left makes the claim that the thought of a Shadow Government is just conspiracy fodder for the right-wing zealots, be sure to point them to this disturbing and intentional “idea".

Update:  Talk of removing President Trump, (by an undefined body), is not a conspiracy:


Byron York: 25th Amendment chatter: Dems, pundits mull ways to remove Trump

"The amendment allows Congress to select some 'other body' other than the cabinet to determine whether the president is capable of discharging the duties required, and remove him or her if necessary," the statement said. "Yet, this body is undefined, and there is no guidance for how it should operate. After examining the issue, Blumenauer believes living former presidents and vice presidents could constitute the body."

Gee, I wonder where Blumenauer got this idea?

GENERAL FLYNN OUT, DEMOCRATS, MSM GOT THEIR POUND OF FLESH

The controversial National Security position in the Trump Administration came to an abrupt end Monday night, as Michael Flynn resigned.  Flynn had not properly explained his conversations with Russian diplomats before President Trump was sworn in as the 45th President, and it became apparent his position might be compromised going forward.  Via NBC news:

"Michael Flynn abruptly quit as President Donald Trump's national security adviser Monday night, hours after it emerged that the Justice Department informed the White House that it believed he could be subject to blackmail.

The resignation also came after previous disclosures that Flynn had misled Vice President Mike Pence and other senior officials about his communications with Sergey Kislyak, Russia's ambassador to the United States. Pence repeated the misinformation in television appearances.

"Unfortunately, because of the fast pace of events, I inadvertently briefed the Vice President Elect and others with incomplete information regarding my phone calls with the Russian Ambassador. I have sincerely apologized to the President and the Vice President, and they have accepted my apology," Flynn said in his resignation letter."

Ever since it was acknowledged that Flynn had indeed had a conversation with the Russian Ambassador---before Trump took office---the Liberal anti-Trump Media has smelled blood in the water.

"If it wasn't for the investigative journalism of the Washington Post, the New York Times, and the CNN's of the world, this story would have never came to light" ~ CNN's Brian Stelter  Other "journalist" are claiming this is the end of Fake News, believing their credibility has been completely absolved.

Democrats are calling for a full investigation on who else knew, (and when), Flynn had the conversations about Russian sanctions.  The rest of the Liberal Media can't believe Flynn acted alone, and must have worked "in concert" with other Trump officials, a theory the Media will certainly explore.  

But, the Media also believes they've revived the "Russian's are responsible for Trump's victory", providing fodder for the President's legitimacy.  Of course, to the mainstream liberal media, the sky is falling:

David Frum: "We need to know how much money flowed into this, [Trump Organization], and how much it influenced this election".  (paraphrased)

Chris Cuomo: "Who else knew about this "campaign of appeasement" with the Russians". (paraphrased)

Joe and Mika: "The World in Disarray"

Make no mistake, the Media's got their pound of flesh and they'll be whipping themselves into a frenzy of scurrilous innuendos and conspiracy theories in the days ahead.  And, the vampire's are hungry.

More ahead.............

Democrats, Their Complicit Media, Liberal Courts, and D.C. Establishment in a Full-Throated Anti-Trump Mode

Just three weeks into the Donald Trump Presidency, and it's all hands on deck to thwart the Commander in Chief from getting his government formed, or even off the ground.  

Senate Democrats have done everything in their weakened powers to obstruct and dismantle the process of confirming Trump's cabinet appointments, unprecedented in modern times of forming a functioning government.  And, make no mistake, it's 100% political.  In fact, if not for "Harry's Nuke Option" so generously handed to the Republicans, President Trump would most likely have only 3-4 positions filled.

To make matters worse, the Mainstream Liberal Media is cheering on the Democrat's every obstructionist move---so much for the "peaceful transition of power" afforded all Presidents, except President Trump.

To further add insult to this Presidency, our liberal progressive courts, (specifically, the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals---that has historically had their decisions over-turned 80% of the time by the Supreme Court), are politically playing a dangerous game by rejecting Trump's temporary ban on unstable and potentially deadly regions that could be importing terrorist onto our soil.  Despite the fact that 1) the President has the constitutional right to ban any alien/non-U.S. Citizen from entering our country, and 2) the previous President, [Obama], had listed these same nations as unstable, potentially dangerous, and in need of improvised vetting procedures, the liberal Ninth ruled unanimously against the Trump ban.

Right on cue, the Democrats and the Liberal Media cheered the setback, (to properly vet these dangerous regions), as a Victory for the left and their open border ideology.  Just days ago, in an interview with Yahoo News, Syrian President Bashar Assad said there are "definitely" refugees fleeing his country that are "aligned with terrorist", yet our belligerent Courts, the Media, and Democrats refuse to acknowledge this reality---seriously putting American citizens in a dangerous situation.

The left-wing site Politco wrote about this story and inserted these two interesting paragraphs:

“The United Nations refugee agency has said as recently as late January that refugees from Syria pose no threat to the U.S. or other nations.”

“Of those seeking to enter the U.S. or other nations around the world, Assad said it is impossible to know how many might be terrorists, but that only a small number would be required to execute a large-scale attack.”

Yet the Democrats and the Courts would rather play political games with the lives of Americans.  And YOUR Mainstream Liberal Media heartily endorses this "game", as long as it can defeat President Trump's intentions to keep this nation safe.

Please tell me, who do YOU trust?  

More importantly, who will YOU blame if this happens again?




"Since 9/11, 72 individuals from the seven mostly Muslim countries covered by President Trump's "extreme vetting" executive order have been convicted of terrorism, a finding that clashes sharply with claims from an appeals court that there is "no evidence" those countries have produced a terrorist.

According to a report out Saturday, at least 17 claimed to be refugees from those nations, three came in as "students," and 25 eventually became U.S. citizens."

So much for the Ninth's claim of "there is no evidence".

UNITED STATES SENATE DECORUM BREAKS DOWN, DEMOCRATS GET UGLY

Last night, during the Senate debate over the confirmation of Senator Jeff Sessions, (for attorney general), Senate Democrats took their vitriolic disdain to a new level when Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren began reading text that basically called Sessions a racist: 

"Massachusetts Democrat Sen. Elizabeth Warren received a stunning monition Tuesday evening from her fellow senators after she quoted from a letter that accused Attorney General-designate Sen. Jeff Sessions (R.-Ala.) of racism during his tenure as a federal prosecutor.

Warren may have thought she could skirt the rules if she quoted someone else speaking about Sessions, but instead she was forced to end her remarks because of her breach of Senate protocol.

First, she quoted Sen. Edward Kennedy Sr., from 1986 when the Massachusetts Democrat led the opposition to Sessions joining the federal bench: “Mr. Sessions is a throwback to a shameful era, which I know both black and White Americans thought was in our past. It is inconceivable to me that a person of this attitude is qualified to be a U.S. Attorney, let alone a U.S. federal judge, he is I believe a disgrace to the Justice Department and he should withdraw his nomination and resign his position.”  link

At this point, the presiding officer, Sen. Steven Daines (R.-Mont.), warned Warren that her comments were a violation of Senate Rule XIX, and with the help of a Senate aid, explained to Warren where she was running amok:

“The rule applies to impugning conduct or motive through any form or voice to a sitting senator–form or voice includes quotes, articles or other materials.”

When told she could proceed, Warren began reading from documents written in a 1986 letter by Coretta Scott King:

Warren also included lines from the cover letter: “Mr. Sessions has used the awesome powers of his office in a shabby attempt to intimidate and frighten elderly black voters. For this reprehensible conduct, he should not be rewarded with a federal judgeship.”

At this point Daines objected again, that she was impugning the character of a fellow Senator.  Not long after, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell took the floor to complete the admonishment: 

"McConnell told Daines, “The senator has impugned the motives and conduct of our colleague from Alabama as warned by the chair. Senator Warren, quote-said, ‘Sessions has used the awesome power of his office to chill the free exercise of the vote by black citizens.’ I call the Senate to order under the provisions of Rule XIX.”

After several procedural votes, Warren was ruled out of order, and then told she could not continue.  In other words, she was done for the night.

"After quorum call, the Senate voted 49-to-43 to sustain the ruling of the chair and then 50-to-43 that Warren could not continue in her floor speech."

But, that wasn't the end of this story.  In not accepting the results of the Senate's decision, Minority Leader Chuck Schumer took to the floor in defense of Warren by accusing Republicans of silencing a fellow colleague, while insisting the articles Warren was reading be submitted into the record.  That "request" was objected to, leaving the article out of the record, which further infuriated the Democrats.

Schumer and the Democrats have been deliberately "slow-walking" every Trump appointment to his cabinet, (which totaled five, when Education Nominee Betsy DeVos was confirmed earlier in the day on a vote that required Vice President Pence's vote to break a 50-50 tie.)

Liberal Pundits took to the twitter airwaves to declare Warren #Persisted, bragging about the Massachusetts Senator's vile and undistinguished actions on the floor.

Both Marco Rubio and Orin Hatch then took to the floor to remind Senate Democrats that while they understood tensions were running high, (because the Democrats had just suffered a devastating election), but there was/is a level of decorum expected from their fellow colleagues.  Hatch took several minutes addressing the body, saying that he'd never heard---in all his years in the Senate---this level of animosity directed at Senator Sessions or any other Senator, calling Warren's actions a “constant diatribe”:

“I listened to her for quite a while and she didn’t have a good thing to say about a fellow senator here, and I frankly don’t think that’s right. If we don’t respect each other, we’re going down a very steep path to oblivion.”

Hatch also said "All of us need to take stock and need to start thinking about the people on the other side of the aisle and need to start thinking about how we might bring each other together", yet it seemed to have fallen of deaf ears on the other side. 

"We have become a society incapable of having debates anymore" said Rubio, while claiming chairs aren't getting thrown yet, but this body is "flirting with it".

Moments later, as the confirmation debate continued, Democrat Sheldon Whitehouse started right back in with a diatribe of his own spewing the typical Democrat talking points, accusing Sessions disparaging immigrant groups and prominent civil rights organizations.

In a defiance of decorum or civility, the Democrats, (and by extension, the Democrat Party), has certainly not gotten over the fact that their Presidential candidate lost this election, or that the people spoke loudly at the polls that they'd have had far enough of the liberal progressive direction.  

While the Liberal Pundits do not concur, or even face this reality with any level of civility, President Trump, this current Senate and the House, will provide the much needed change our electorate has demanded.

Snowflakes, (and the vile likes of Elizabeth Warren), need not apply.

LIBERAL ANTI-TRUMP MEDIA AT IT AGAIN----FAKE POLLS PRODUCE DESIRED NARRATIVES

One would have thought the Mainstream Liberal Media might have learned a lesson in producing polling that can't be trusted after the embarrassing job the pollsters did in this last election.

Yet, right on cue, CNN commissions a poll on President Trump's "travel ban" where they convince their readers it's really a Muslim Ban.  


"As you may know, Donald Trump signed an executive order which prohibits travel to the U.S. for the next three months by citizens of seven majority-Muslim countries, and suspends the U.S. refugee program for four months while reducing the total number of refugees the U.S. will accept this year. Overall, do you favor or oppose this executive order?"

Of course, the question is leading, assumptive, and, oh yeah, over-weighted.

Pollsters don't provide information that might be relevant to the question, like "did you know Barack Obama listed these same seven countries as "unstable regions"?  Or, that any U.S. President has the legal right to impose restrictions on any alien, (non-citizen) attempting to enter this country.  Or, that Muslims who practice their Islamic faith literally, (according to their "bible", the Koran), their Sharia Law demands a complete submission to Islam.



With no advance information, and a completely deceptive/fallacious question, CNN got the results they needed to produce a false narrative:

Jan. 31-Feb. 2 2017

Favor 47%  Oppose 53%

A total of 1,002 adults were interviewed by telephone nationwide by live interviewers calling both landline and cell phones.  Among the entire sample, 29% described themselves as Democrats, 25% described themselves as Republicans, and 45% described themselves as independents or members of another party.  (link)

So, CNN got their 6% margin of an "unfavorable" result, (crosstabs at the link show an 8.5 +/- "possible error"), before they provide down in their article how polarized the two parties are when it comes to our President's decisions:

"Across all these questions, opinions are sharply divided by party. Democrats are just as apt to oppose the executive order (88%) as Republicans are to support it (88%); independents tilt against, with 54% opposed. Republicans are 10 times as likely as Democrats to say the order makes the US safer (83% of Republicans vs. 8% of Democrats), and their opinions are again 180 degrees apart when asked about its impact on American values (80% of Republicans say it protects them while 81% of Democrats say it harms them).  (link)

You won't have to look up any poll to find over 90% of CNN's articles, polls, and opinions are 100% anti-Trump---they just flat out hate the man, and they're not afraid to admit it.  If CNN had provided the information I listed above previous to their bogus question, my conservative guess would be most American's would favor Trump's temporary actions by 10%-15% over the unfavorables.  CNN is literally providing a false narrative without any regard to this nation's safety and security from our enemies---Radical Islamic Terrorist.

There has to come a point where Americans ask how far CNN, (and much of the liberal media), plans to plot against the best interest of our country.  Or, how far will they go to destroy a United State's President?
