More Obama Calumny

Despite having to vacate the White House and top federal jobs, Obama’s criminal clique continue their work at tearing America down.

Apparently they are shoveling their paper trails of crime into the Obama Presidential Library where, apparently, they can lock them up from public gaze for at least five years.

If this is true, there’s something wrong.

Monica Showalter has a good piece at The American Thinker.

Firstly, these “libraries” are supposed to be public institutions with limited “secret,” inaccessible materials. Everyday material should be accessible, not hived off simply because perpetrators wish to hide their evil activities. Remember, confidentiality cannot be claimed if it hides criminal activity.

Secondly, since when does the collection of material get going immediately after an inaugural? These libraries take years to be built and filled.

Thirdly, the records in question are public records first and foremost, therefore they should always be accessible to the public — either as copies or originals.

How does Susan Rice stay out of jail over her admitted “unmasking”/leaking of confidential material? She abused her office to an unprecedented extent. The same thing for Samantha “Smart” Power.

Until liberals are prosecuted for their crimes, they will continue their reign of political terror.

As the Bern Turns

So another crazed Bernie Sanders supporter goes nuts and starts shooting… This time in Alexandria, Virginia and at Republican congressmen and stafffers.

But unlike the Portland shooter from last month, the MSM couldn’t bury this story when it comes out that the maniac shooter is a Bernie Sanders supporter.

If you remember, the Portland killer was a “white supremacist” with clear anti-Muslim and racist intentions in initial reports, then he was nobody when his Bernie affiliation became apparent.

This time we have the more predictable MSM and law enforcement response — “We just can’t figure out this guy’s motive.” Despite his Facebook pages and a lengthy, well-documented hardcore lefty political trail, this clown is just as much a mystery as those Muslims yelling “Allahu, Akbar!” right before they detonate a bomb or stab a poor girl to death. “I do this in the name of Allah!” they shout and somehow our media mavens and law enforcement pros can’t figure out why they do it…

It’d be funny except people are getting killed in the forced pretend ignorance of moral equivalence.

And naturally something else is missing. Oh, yeah, the enforced groveling that comes when anyone to the right of Stalin does something or, more likely, says something the liberals don’t like. Then every libtard politico, celebrity and so-called journalist demands every Republican from the dogcatcher in Buttscratch, Utah, to the president of the United States condemn the perp.

Yet when a lefty goes on a rampage it’s crickets…

It took King Barry I, et al, about 2.9 seconds to blame conservatives and Confederate history for racist nutjob Dylann Roof yet somehow the far more commonplace lefty violence requires massive, lengthy investigations into “motive.”

Has any high-profile libtard been asked or voluntarily condemned the leftwing violence we’re seeing, especially on college campuses?

I know, silly question.

So how’s the MSM going to dissipate this embarrassment away?

More Trump-bashing!

My local radio news station WTOP just announced that Trump is under investigation for obstruction of justice. No quibbling there, even though it’s coming from one of those WaPoo stories based on leaks from mysterious unnamed insiders…

And there’s always Pizzagate guy… Any port in a storm for the MSM.

And there’s NPR pushing the condemnation of white racism in the Alt-Right movement by the “Southern Baptist Convention.” Though in the actual report the convention was condemning all racism… Nothing like twisting the news for the good of the liberal cause, or to get it out of the spotlight it suddenly found itself in.

Down the Memory Hole She Went

That was quick. It seems that Sara Leigh “Reality” Winner has had her 15 minutes of fame in the eyes of our MSM news gatekeepers. Her story — leaking classified information to reporters — has been sent down Orwell’s Memory Hole after one day in the limelight because her identity was inconvenient for the Democratic Party/Socialist Media Alliance; much like the recent Bernie Sanders-loving Portland “White Supremacist” killer story was quickly euthenized. It’s so hard to keep memes alive when the facts run contrary to them. But our media is nothing if not diligent in watering the memes and keeping them on the front page and at the top of the hour — “trending” as the hipsters say. Another episode in Fake News.

Of course had this happened during the administration of King Barry I and Winner had leaked something embarrassing to The One, and assuming some MSM outlet had initially gone with it, the story would have quickly turned upon her as the MSM deployed dozens to dig up dirt on her (aided and abetted by the DNC and assorted Dem nonprofit activist groups). Reporters would be looking into her kindergarten records – all to cast aspersion on her. But it was different this time. She avoided becoming infamous but instead becomes a nonperson. It’s all still so Orwellian.

Before I let Winner fade away, I wanted to recommend Monica Showalter’s piece at The American Thinker — “Another Young Lefty Contracter Leaks Top Secrets.” Looking at the disaster train — Edward Snowden, Bradley “Chelsea” Manning, she accurately describes the upcoming egotistically clueless, often disturbed, Millennial generation and the depressing state of security clearance investigations.

Wednesday morning’s anti-Trump news was the “rift” between Trump and Attorney General Jeff Sessions or the perceived “rift” or the “rift” that was a few weeks old – this courtesy of the NYT, WaPo and AP – so it must be true.

Then came the “breaking announcement” of Trump’s nomination of a new FBI director which was immediately deemed suspicious and a diversion from James Comey’s upcoming testimony. Sen. Mark Warner immediately said that to back up the MSM.
Of course had Trump waited until after the Comey testimony the story would have been deemed suspicious and a diversion from the “historic” testimony of James Comey, blah, blah, blah. Damned if he does and damned if he doesn’t is how the media spins Trump in every story. The man could cure cancer and the media would whine he’s putting hardworking health care professionals, “historically” minorities, out of work…

That’s how “our” “news” gets made.

 

On Griffin 2

This little piece on Jim Carrey’s and Rosie O’Donnell’s reactions to the Kathy Griffin mess demonstrates the utter depravity of the cultural liberal.

Carrey said, “I think it is the job of a comedian to cross the line at all times — because that line is not real.” I’m not sure how one crosses an unreal line… but, Mr. Carrey, the job of a comedian is to be funny. That might involve crossing some line but it usually doesn’t. Someone whose sole job is to “cross the line” is a provocateur.

He added the utterly predictable liberal masturbation, “We’re the last line of defense. And really, the comedians are the last voice of truth in this whole thing.” Oy, if there are two things about comedians, it’s that they are not the last line of defense nor ever the last voice of truth.

Jim Carrey is a funny guy (usually) but he thinks far too much of himself.

As for Rosie O’Donnell – she preferred to reference Barron Trump and the maniac in Portland that stabbed two people while harassing two women. She blamed that on Donald Trump. Apparently Rosie missed the discovery that the attacker was a Bernie Sanders supporter (along with having a screw loose, but then that goes without saying). Hey, Rosie, aren’t you sweet on Bernie, too?

All of which leads me to that Portland story. Rosie’s ignorance of the facts of the case might have to do with the fact that the story disappeared out of the mainstream media as soon as it was revealed that the killer was a Sanders and Jill Stein supporter. Since those facts didn’t appear in the NYT, WaPo, AP, CNN, MSNBC, mainstream TV, et al, as they were contrary to the approved meme it was impossible for her to know her talking points. The last she had heard were the first reports, “White supremacist kills two…” and they eagerly, giddily hinted that we had another Dylann Roof. That’s where she is stuck – parrots have to be retrained when new things come along.

It’s not an accident that the story went down the MSM’s Orwellian memory hole. The MSM is a propaganda organ and anything contrary to the approved memes can’t be “news.” They should be ashamed of themselves but as we’ve learned, the liberal has no shame.

Mercy For Griffin

Yeah, that’s a tough one and though she doesn’t deserve it but I’m actually advocating some mercy for “Comedienne” Kathy Griffin after her foolish participation in some “performance art” featuring a fake severed Donald Trump.

Performance art has long been a scam. Was it ever anything else? It’s been the forum of the talentless and angry.

I have little doubt that Griffin’s apology is probably more motivated by the backlash and sudden realization of the mortality of her own career than any heartfelt understanding that what she did really was wrong.

She’s been a long-time twisted liberal hatchetwoman, little different than so many TV comics. That she’s found a home on CNN for so long tells you about where there head is.

Having said all that, I do advocate some mercy for her.

Our society, led by the liberal cultural commissars, has become vicious often seeking metaphorical bloodsport, in destroying people’s careers over the slightest “outrageous” transgression. Liberals love to seek and be “outraged.” There are times when it seems all that liberals live for is to be “outraged” by something.

Conservatives are used to this as they are the ones usually on the receiving end of these outrage fits.

The list of folks whose careers were dented or destroyed over some “outrageous” comment

My response on all of this is for people to lighten up and get a sense of humor.

Yeah, there was no humor involved in this incident but performers like Griffin need some latitude for the occasional faceplant. ALL performers need this.

Comics do go too far sometimes. It’s what many do and ideally they learn.

On the other hand, she has repeatedly demonstrated she is a horrible person so she should have some humility. I’m not advocating she go tearfully onto the Ellen or Oprah shows (and give one of those nonapology apologies) but it would be nice to see real contrition. Maybe an afternoon in some stocks in a public square in a Texas town and children pelting her with rotten fruit and vegetables – on live TV. For charity, of course.

Griffin is so illustrative how far out the American left is. How easily “Death to Trump” rolls off their tongues.

Imagine if this was a conservative comic – there are a few out there but they don’t get big-time jobs on TV like a low-rent comic like Griffin gets. But imagine the nuclear holocaust that would have been visited on, say, Steve Crowder if he’d displayed a plastic head of Obama. The energy radiated alone in vaporizing him would have raised the Earth’s surface temperature by a couple of degrees. Every Republican on the planet would have been asked/required to denounce him… Remember how “everyone” went ape poop when a cartoonist had Obama as an organ grinder’s monkey? Oy!

Yeah, it’s not fair but we’ve become a hypersensitized society and that only plays into the hands of the liberals.

How Is Trump Like Global Warming?

Those who have been around a few years can recall the very specific predictions that used to be issued by global warming con men like Al Gore. Back at the end of the Clinton administration, doom-laden prognostications included things like New York City being practically underwater in… well… right about now. Temperatures were going to continue to rise until the world was one big desert, except where it was Waterworld-style ocean — all at the same time. It would no longer rain or snow, except where it rained and snowed in Biblical quantities. Tornadoes and hurricanes would roll year-round all over the planet.

Of course, 20 years later none of these things happened. New York is not underwater (despite Pres. Obama’s claim that Miami was underwater at high tide — a ludicrous claim that the media buried though one can imagine the firestorm if Donald Trump had said such a thing) and the temperature graphs have become so laughable that one could drive a semi between the real temperatures and the predicted/expected temperatures (that doesn’t even take into account the manipulation of some temperature records by NOAA). And the U.S. has gone through a record period of hurricane nonvisitation.

You’d think that would humble some people but, as we see, it didn’t. The hucksters, now renamed “climate change” activists have simply redoubled their efforts.

All of this leads me to Donald Trump.

Liberals, led by the Media-Entertainment-Academic Complex and the Democrat Party, promised that with ascension of Donald Trump all sorts of bad things would happen. The stock market would collapse; the world would erupt in flames; minorities of all stripes would be thrown into jail or possibly even tossed onto pyres; slavery would be reinstituted and fascism would be the official religion of the United States.

Well, like global warming predictions, all of these have proven wildly incorrect.

So what is it with the liberals that they feel compelled to insist that whenever their oh-so sage advice is not followed hyperdoom consequences will ensue? Why does everything with them have to be so histrionic, so Manichean?

Sadly, we are seeing the manifestations of this on college campuses where we have so-called students squealing that they are oppressed and being “marginalized.” Yes, the most pampered, coddled, spoiled, patronized, overfed children in history live in some kind of fantasy where they are oppressed victims akin to gulag zeks, medieval galley slaves or concentration camp inmates. It boggles the mind yet it is the world we are now living in. What is to be done with this next generation of delusional liberals?

The Susan Rice Story: Crickets and Squirrels

Last weekend it broke that former Obama apparatchik Susan Rice apparently spent 2016 and the transition period collecting classified intel on Donald Trump and his campaign/transition staffs. For exactly what purposes is unclear. Rice’s responses have been of the “You can’t prove it, I didn’t leak it and It wasn’t illegal” variety.

You might recall Ms. Rice, was the chief disinformation dispenser for the Benghazi cluster-eff.

This was a follow-on to the Evelyn Farkas fark-up, adding fuel to the fire that there was vast, Obama administration-wide conspiracy to gather and distribute classified surveillance intelligence that could be portrayed as embarrassing to Trump and his people.

An interesting sidelight about this bombshell of a story is its coverage or lack thereof. It broke last weekend yet, somehow, the major media, those great guys and gals that cover every utterance of Trump and so many Republicans, have helpfully relayed the “Trump is a Putin puppet” meme slavishly almost every hour of every day since it surfaced last year, have yet to get to the story, and I write this Thursday night.

Wait, I tell a lie. There have been a couple of odd stories about Susan Rice issuing mysterious denials concerning something that is entirely legal and hardly anything at all… The inestimable Mollie Hemingway has a great piece here.

The Farkas revelations too have been ignored.

Ahem…

Yeah, no media bias here… move along.

Obviously, the MSM is waiting for their cues from the DNC, via the New York Times, Washington Post and AP — all of which have turned a blind eye to a story that if it was committed by a Republican would be 24/7 news.

Eventually we’ll see a few dimwitted Dem parrots… er… politicians will chime in reinforcing the anointed meme. Clearly the DNC hasn’t figured out the angle yet.

Question, if the MSM doesn’t cover something, is it still news? (Their answer is ‘No.’)
