Think it through: ‘In Trump World everyone lies’ according to Omarosa, former longtime inhabitant of Trump World

Maybe the book should have been called “Projection”

This is like one of those logical head-scratchers. “Hmm… everybody from Trump World lies, you’re from Trump World, therefore…”

After releasing a series of damaging recordings of conversations with White House officials and President Trump, former White House staffer and “Apprentice” star Omarosa Manigault Newman said she needed to “protect herself” during the 2016 campaign and in the White House because in “Trump world, everyone lies.”

“Everyone says one thing one day, and they change their story the next day,” Omarosa said on “CBS This Morning” on Tuesday.

So far, considering reactions to claims made in her book, it should have been titled “Projection” instead of “Unhinged.”

Over 100 newspapers try to prove Trump’s wrong to accuse MSM of bias by coordinating simultaneous publication of anti-Trump editorials

They’re making a point, but not the one they think

Remember when the mainstream media nearly passed out from hyperventilation after Sinclair was discovered to have distributed a script to all its stations for a PSA about their commitment to the truth in their newscasts?

Media coordination is bad when a more conservative outlet does it within their own group, but when the liberal media does something similar and it’s anti-Trump, then that’s something to be celebrated:

These people owe Sinclair an apology for all the criticism, and what Sinclair did was within its own organization (and not uncommon in broadcast groups), not throughout a cross-section of unaffiliated outlets. But yet here we are:

“The dirty war on the free press must end.”

That’s the idea behind an unusual editorial-writing initiative that has enlisted scores of newspapers across America.

The Boston Globe has been contacting newspaper editorial boards and proposing a “coordinated response” to President Trump’s escalating “enemy of the people” rhetoric.

“We propose to publish an editorial on August 16 on the dangers of the administration’s assault on the press and ask others to commit to publishing their own editorials on the same date,” The Globe said in its pitch to fellow papers.

The effort began just a few days ago.

As of Saturday, “we have more than 100 publications signed up, and I expect that number to grow in the coming days,” Marjorie Pritchard, the Globe’s deputy editorial page editor, told CNN.

I didn’t always completely despise the mainstream media. Hell, I spent 20 years working for a broadcast company at a CBS affiliate, and at a local level news stations are still usually reliable sources of information. But nationally, to a great degree, “journalism” in the mainstream media has become an embarrassment and a bad joke. And you know what’s even sadder? Many “journalists” don’t see it, and if they do, they blame the news consumer — you. But don’t take my word for it, here’s a CNN reporter saying just that:

Basically the mainstream media thinks you’re dumb and that’s why you don’t believe everything they say.

I hate to break the news to her, but if there was a concerted effort to teach kids in school how to spot BS, trust in the media would get a lot worse, not better.

What a credibility boost! Peter Strzok gets canned by the FBI, immediately starts passing the hat for Resistance donations

FBI agent Peter Strzok, whose texts made it clear that at the time the agency was investigating allegations of Trump campaign collusion with Russia before the election, has been fired. It’s now an honored tradition among sh*tcanned anti-Trump Resistance warriors to pass the hat afterwards, and Strzok is no different:

As of right now the amount of money raised is approaching $40,000. The number of suckers born every minute in the phrase “there’s a sucker born every minute” needs to be dramatically increased these days.

As it’s been pointed out, the real irony here is that Peter Strzok has almost single-handedly contributed to the credibility of the FBI’s Russia investigation, and yet liberals are sending him money.

So anyway, I have a new financial strategy now:

GREEN movement: DNC decides after 2 long months that maybe fossil fuel industry donations aren’t all that bad after all

THAT didn’t last long

My tweet best summed up how I feel about this story:

The DNC just wanted to make sure they remain fully committed to the “green” movement:

The Democratic National Committee passed a resolution Friday afternoon that activists say effectively reverses a ban on fossil fuel company donations.

The resolution introduced by DNC Chair Tom Perez states that the party “support[s] fossil fuel workers” and will accept donations from “employers’ political action committees.” It was approved by a 30-2 vote just two months after the committee adopted another resolution prohibiting donations from fossil fuel companies by a unanimous vote.

The new resolution nods to “forward-looking employers” that are “powering America’s all-of-the-above energy economy and moving us towards a future fueled by clean and low-emissions energy technology, from renewables to carbon capture and storage to advanced nuclear technology.”

Just watch now, in an Al Gore-ian twist, the Democrats will spin this to their angry base by pledging to spend the fossil fuel company donations to support candidates who will warn the world that fossil fuels are destroying the earth.

Of course: Anti-ICE Philadelphia mayor blames ICE for not doing enough to save child from direct result of his sanctuary city policy

Insanity

Remember Philadelphia Mayor Jim “sanctuary city happy dance” Kenney we talked about a couple days ago and the illegal alien released by his city who went on to rape a child?

Guess who the mayor blames? You guessed it — ICE:

What an absolutely shameless POS:

Mayor Kenney, attending a press conference Wednesday on illegal guns, forcefully defended the city’s policy of rejecting ICE detainers for the undocumented without a judge’s warrant to hold them. He says six times last year the city handed over people it was holding when the feds got a warrant.

But McSwain, appointed United States Attorney by President Trump, who’s staked out a get-tough immigration policy, argues the city gave Vasquez a “free pass.”

“What really fosters trust between law enforcement and the community is respect for the rule of law in including immigration laws,” McSwain said.

Mayor Kenney agrees the case is horrible, but argues the solution is as simple as getting a legal document.

“You do see this as a tragedy. No other way to look at it?” Cole asked. Mayor Kenney replied, “An absolute tragedy, but all they had to do is get a warrant and we would have turned him over.”

Got that? The mayor who hates ICE blames ICE for not doing enough to save the child from a criminal released due to his own insane sanctuary city policy.

Shocker: Extra votes ‘found’ in Ohio 12 district’s too close to call race (guess which party those votes favor)

What a coincidence

Is it just me, or do extra votes that are found after an election’s over almost always go in favor of the Democrat candidate? Sure is a coincidence:

The tight race between Democrat Danny O’Connor and Republican Troy Balderson just got tighter.

Election officials in Franklin County found 588 previously uncounted votes in a Columbus suburb. The result: O’Connor had a net gain of 190 votes, bringing the race’s margin down to 1,564.

“The votes from a portion of one voting location had not been processed into the tabulation system,” according to a Franklin County Board of Elections news release.

And there are more outstanding, so no winner will be declared for some time:

That includes 3,435 provisional ballots and 5,048 absentee ballots, which will be tabulated by Aug. 24.

Why it takes another two weeks to tabulate 8,500 votes that are already in-hand is anybody’s guess.

CNN’s Jim Acosta goes on national late night comedy show to tell America he ‘doesn’t want to be the story’

The equivalent of saying you wish you weren’t the center of attention while singing “I Gotta Be Me” naked in Times Square.

This is the most self-contained overdose of irony I’ve seen in quite a while:

That’s the equivalent of saying you wish you weren’t the center of attention while singing “I Gotta Be Me” naked in Times Square.

Acosta also got his inner Stuart Smalley on:

“I’m good enough, I’m smart enough, and doggone it, the anti-Trump Resistance likes me.”

Latest justification to pay for socialist utopia: Think of all the money families will save on funerals, or something

Whaaat?

Socialist “free everything” proposals floated by the likes of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Bernie Sanders have been scrutinized as far as how they’d be paid for (spoiler: they couldn’t possibly be). But that isn’t stopping socialist utopia cheerleaders like Ocasio-Cortez from presenting the sales pitch.

Fasten your seatbelts, because you’re about to blast off into another adventure into socialist fantasyland:

“So, we’re paying for this system. We — Americans have the sticker shock of healthcare as it is, and what we’re also not talking about is, why aren’t we incorporating the cost of all the funeral expenses of those who died because they can’t afford access to healthcare? That is part of the cost of our system.”

Ha! “Sure ‘free healthcare & college for all’ will cost $218 trillion over 30 years, but nobody’s going to die. NOW how much would you pay!?”

Anybody want to tell her that people who can afford access to health care are going to die too? And it’s interesting that she brought up “access to health care.” Health insurance is NOT access to health care — just ask people in countries with socialized medicine who are on nine-month waiting lists. They tend to have plenty of access to insurance, but highly limited access to health care.

Watch the Philly mayor’s sanctuary city ‘happy dance’ and then read this horrific DOJ press release

How these mayors keep getting away with ignoring federal law while sending criminal aliens off to potentially harm or kill others is anybody’s guess.

Warning: This story will piss you off, and it should.

Last June, Philadelphia Mayor Jim Kenney did a happy dance after a judge upheld his city’s beloved “sanctuary” status:

Keep on dancin’, dickweed. Now read this from the Justice Department yesterday (underlining is mine):

Philadelphia, PA – U.S. Attorney William M. McSwain announced that Juan Ramon Vasquez, a citizen of Honduras, pleaded guilty today to illegal reentry after deportation. In May 2009, the defendant was deported from the United States. Thereafter, in March 2014, the defendant was found back in the United States by U.S. Department of Homeland Security’s Immigration and Customs Enforcement (“ICE”) officers. At that time, Vasquez was in the custody of the Philadelphia Department of Prisons.

The City of Philadelphia thereafter chose not to comply with a detainer lodged by ICE for the defendant, who was instead released from custody by the Philadelphia Department of Prisons. After his release, the defendant was rearrested and convicted for rape of a child and unlawful sexual contact with a minor. The defendant is currently serving a sentence of 8 to 20 years in state prison.

The defendant, having now pleaded guilty to the federal charge of illegal reentry after deportation, faces a maximum possible sentence of two years in federal prison. He is scheduled to be sentenced on November 20, 2018, by the Honorable Nitza I. Quiñones Alejandro.

“The facts of this case highlight the danger posed by the City of Philadelphia’s decision to disregard ICE detainers and release previously deported aliens from local custody,” said U.S. Attorney McSwain. “Those of us in the law enforcement business should be doing everything in our power to protect vulnerable children from predators like Vasquez. Instead, this defendant received a free pass from the City of Philadelphia and its Department of Prisons, headed straight back into our community, and committed a heinous crime he never would have had the chance to commit had the City of Philadelphia complied with the ICE detainer.”

But Democrats care about kids so much, or something.

How these mayors keep getting away with ignoring federal law while sending criminal aliens off to potentially harm or kill others is anybody’s guess.

Socialist space cadet Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez hails Democratic Party for being ‘the ones who went to the moon’

Facepalm

The more the Dems’ latest socialist darling keeps talking the more convinced I am that the Republicans will hold Congress. This is a fitting subject for Ocasio-Cortez, considering that the word “lunatic” is based on the Latin word for moon:

I wasn’t even three years old yet that day in 1969, but I still remember well Neil Armstrong stepping off the lander, saying “That’s one small step for man, one giant lap for the Democratic Party” and then planting the DNC flag on the Sea of Tranquility.
