McJournalism! Trump’s fast food buffet for Clemson players had the Washington Post trying to make Burger-Gate a thing


President Trump had the national champion Clemson Tigers football team to the White House yesterday, and because of the shutdown he had to improvise out of his own pocket:

The Washington Post’s journalistic instincts kicked in quickly:

I smell a Pulitzer in the air!

Oh, and then the paper that once brought down a presidency crunched Trump’s original count on the number of burgers in the hopes of making “Burger-Gate” a new thing:

Leave it to “journalists” to do more investigating when a president spends his own money on something as opposed to everybody else’s.

Hopefully next an intrepid journalist does an investigation into exactly what a “berder” is. That whole WaPo “investigation” comes across as an audition for a job at CNN.

Also, I don’t want to brag, but I called it. Here’s proof:

The shot:

And the chasers:

Excuse me, but I’ll be spending the rest of the day thinking about the liberal media reactions to Trump’s burger-fest and doing this:

Thud: Here’s how the Dems’ dire warnings about net neutrality repeal have held up after a year

Another liberal BS fail

In 2017, one of the issues that Democrats said was going to kill off anybody who was lucky enough to survive tax cuts or Trump-nominated judges was the repeal of Obama-era net neutrality regulations. Well, if not kill everybody off, it was at least supposed to make us have crappier and more expensive internet connections while we awaited Judgment Day from that other stuff. Here’s a sample of the Dems and their supporters:

However, one year after the Obama-era regs were repealed, the Dems and their allies have been proven, not surprisingly, wrong again. Fast-forward one year after the above warnings:

At what point does the vast majority of Americans stop taking the Dems’ across-the-board alarmist crap serious? From climate change to Judge Kavanaugh to net neutrality repeal — they’re wrong constantly. But being a congressional Democrat isn’t about being correct, it’s about convincing as many people as possible to buy your BS, and too many do.

CNN then: Caravan just a Trump political stunt — CNN now: Caravan a symptom of climate change!

The fakest of ‘fake news’

Remember after President Trump issued warnings about (and to) the so-called “migrant caravan” heading north through Mexico and CNN blew it all off as Trump just playing politics?

And once people who mixed in with the caravan started trying to force their way into the U.S. and Trump was proven right, CNN quickly swapped out the narrative. Guess who’s “playing politics” with it now:

As predictable as the sun rising in the east.

It’s becoming increasingly clear that “climate change” was invented to give liberals an escape hatch for when they get trapped in an argument that isn’t going their way.

Et tu, lib media? Boston Globe endorses Elizabeth Warren to stay a senator and NOT run for president

A presidential trial balloon has been popped

Anybody who lives outside the dark blue-state liberal bubble knows that Elizabeth Warren would have a Custer’s chance at Little Bighorn of appealing to voters in flyover country when it comes to winning a national presidential contest. The Boston Globe has also come to that conclusion:

Et tu, liberal media?

Presidential runs seem to be in the state’s political DNA, in part because of the proximity of New Hampshire and its first-in-the-nation primary. And it’s often the right move: In 2015, this editorial page urged Warren to run, in part because of the lack of serious competition against Hillary Clinton. (Clearing the decks for Clinton didn’t exactly end well for Democrats, did it?)…

Warren missed her moment in 2016, and there’s reason to be skeptical of her prospective candidacy in 2020. While Warren won reelection, her margin of victory in November suggests there’s a ceiling on her popularity; Governor Baker garnered more votes than her in a state that is supposed to be a Democratic haven. Meanwhile, a September poll indicated that Massachusetts voters were more enthusiastic about Patrick making a White House bid than Warren.

Those are warning signs from the voters who know her best. While Warren is an effective and impactful senator with an important voice nationally, she has become a divisive figure. A unifying voice is what the country needs now after the polarizing politics of Donald Trump.

Hmm, it sounds like they’re only giving Warren about a 1/1,024th chance of winning the Dem nomination if she does run, and the campaign would backfire harder than her DNA test results. I for one hope Warren still runs because it’s going to be a three-ring circus and the more clowns the merrier.

HuffPost describing why Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer is ‘problematic’ shows why progressives are impossible to parody

Here’s even more proof that when there are progressives around, there’s no need for humorists, satirists or comedy writers in general:

Imagine living your life that way!

Scientists forced to go full ‘science denier’ on their own alarmist report about ocean warming

So much for “settled,” peer-reviewed “science.”

This article, as well as the “study” cited, should all appear in the dictionary under the definition of “confirmation bias”:

Scientists behind a major study that claimed the Earth’s oceans are warming faster than previously thought now say their work contained inadvertent errors that made their conclusions seem more certain than they actually are.

Two weeks after the high-profile study was published in the journal Nature, its authors have submitted corrections to the publication. The Scripps Institution of Oceanography, home to several of the researchers involved, also noted the problems in the scientists’ work and corrected a news release on its website, which previously had asserted that the study detailed how the Earth’s oceans “have absorbed 60 percent more heat than previously thought.”

“Unfortunately, we made mistakes here,” said Ralph Keeling, a climate scientist at Scripps, who was a co-author of the study. “I think the main lesson is that you work as fast as you can to fix mistakes when you find them.”

Uh oh, the “settled science” denial is coming from inside the house!

Can we now call those same scientists “science deniers”? That’s now it works, right?

CNN sues Trump admin to restore Jim Acosta’s First Amendment right to grandstand during White House briefings

Founders unavailable for comment

Last week, after this scene, the White House pulled the hard pass from CNN’s Chief Resistance Reporter Jim Acosta:

And with that, CNN wrapped Acosta up in a Snuggie made out of copies of the Constitution and filed a lawsuit:

So if I’m understanding the liberal arguments about the Constitution correctly, the Second Amendment doesn’t apply to modern firearms because it was written with muskets in mind, but the First Amendment protects a drama queen cable net reporter from getting kicked out of the White House?

And by the way, Acosta has proven that he doesn’t need a White House pass to keep covering Trump:

I’m guessing the real reason Acosta wants his WH press credentials un-revoked is so CNN can get back to showing more of what Acosta thinks is the important story: Jim Acosta.

Also, CNN gets the vapors when Trump calls them “fake news,” but in their own lawsuit CNN proved why they’ve earned the title:

MORE lies from CNN? Go figure.

In any case, it could be hilarious if this all ended up in court:

Note to Resistance media: The First Amendment wasn’t written to protect a reporter’s right to grandstand in the White House

And repeating DNC talking points aren’t “questions”

Did you see CNN’s Jim Acosta get smacked down after doing his usual shtick at a Trump press conference yesterday? He also tried to keep an aide from taking back the microphone to hand it to somebody else:

For starters, Jim Acosta isn’t a “reporter” because he editorializes constantly, spouting DNC talking points poorly disguised as questions. In any case, the White House yanked Resistance Cronkite’s press credentials:

And with that, many “journalists” (the media have been so ridiculous these last two years the quote marks should be required by law) were defending Acosta on constitutional grounds, starting with the Godfather of Fake News, Dan Rather:

Sorry Dan, but the American press remains as free as it was the day you used your First Amendment right as a reporter to push bogus documents in an attempt to sway a presidential election just days before it took place. Sit down.

Others also weighed in:

Even Jeb Bush got in on the act:

Like I said before, Acosta does not ask questions — he makes political statements on behalf of Democrats. And there is no First Amendment right to grandstand in the White House.

Great moments in objective ‘journalism’: Reporter fails to hang up phone before opining on Mich. Senate race

Just perfect

Not long ago I ran across this, and it’s just perfect:

All together now: “JOURNALISM!”

More from the Daily Caller:

Brenda Battel, a reporter for Huron Daily Tribune, left the voicemail on James’s campaign offices phone number at 3:40 PM Monday, requesting the interview for Wednesday, the day after the Nov. 6 midterm elections. In the voicemail, she expresses her interest in interviewing James, believes she hung up the phone, and then goes on to curse about a possible James victory, saying she doesn’t think it will happen.

“Hi, my name is Brenda Battel, I’m a reporter with the Huron Daily Tribune in Bad Axe, Michigan,” Battel said in the voicemail.

“I’m looking to set up an appointment with Mr. James for some time on Wednesday for a phone interview regarding the election results,” Battel continued. “I’m probably going to send an email over to the with some details. Um, if you’d like to call me back, my number is … extension … Thank you.”

Battel attempts to hang up after giving her number, but the phone remains connected.

“Man, if he beats her… Jesus! Fucking John James. That would suck! Whew I don’t think it’s going to happen though,” Battel continued.

According to most polls (and 2016 taught everybody how worthless those can be) Stabenow still holds a fairly solid lead over James, but with any luck it turns out the other way just to make some “journalists” heads explode — in a totally objective and unbiased way of course.

Of course: CNN interviews ‘random’ person at Dem’s rally who turns out to be the candidate’s mother

What are the odds!?

This just cracks me up, because it’s peak CNN. And notice how Florida gubernatorial candidate Andrew Gillum’s mother plays along until the reporter asked for her name:

Funny how they just happened to find the one random person who happened to be the Dem candidate’s mother.

Obama spoke at the rally in Florida, and there’s proof-positive that he’s very persuasive in getting moms to vote for their own sons. Somewhere Chris Matthews is getting another thrill up his leg.
