NBC’s Holt Attempts to Prosecute Instead of Interview Trump. Honest Answers to Dishonest Journalism Ensue.

May 12, 2017

First-Hundred-NRD-600 

I’m not against the media. I’m against the FAKE media.” – President Donald J. Trump

Breitbart.com reports that

NBCNews.com on Thursday posted a two minute and 34 second preview clip of anchor Lester Holt’s exclusive sit-down with President Donald Trump. The clip features Holt conducting an interrogation-like interview in which the NBC personality interrupted Trump nine times and spoke over the president on many of those occasions.

In the clip, Holt can be seen questioning almost every statement made by Trump.

In one instance, Holt asked Trump about his May 9 letter ousting F.B.I Director James Comey in which Trump wrote, “I greatly appreciate you informing me, on three separate occasions, that I am not under investigation.”

Holt asked Trump, “Why did you put that in there?”

Trump replied, “Because he told me that. I mean, he told me…”

Before Trump could finish his sentence, Holt interrupted, asking, “He told you you weren’t under investigation regarding the Russian investigation?”

“Yeah, and I’ve heard that from others. I think…” Trump began to respond before Holt interrupted again.

“Was it in a phone call? Did you meet face-to-face?” Holt interjected, speaking over Trump.

“I had a dinner with him. He wanted to have dinner because he wanted to stay on. We had a very nice dinner at the White House…”

Holt spoke over Trump again, interrupting this time by asking, “He, he asked for the dinner?”

“A dinner was arranged. I think he asked for a dinner.”

Holt interrupted Trump again when Trump was explaining he knew that he wasn’t under investigation both from Comey three times and from a “committee level.”

“So that didn’t come directly from him?” Holt cut in and asked before Trump could finish his explanation about the times he says he heard from Comey that he wasn’t under investigation.

The Main Stream Media, as demonstrated in that interview by Lester Holt, gave up the appearance of objectivity a long time ago in favor of becoming the Modern Democratic Party’s Propaganda Arm and Ideology-Enforcing Vanguard.

The Main Stream Media has gotten so desperate to bring down the juggernaut that is President-elect Donald J. Trump that that they have adopted the strategy of publishing unsubstantiated lies in order to assuage their own hurt feeling after their failure to aid lousy Democratic Candidate Hillary Clinton in her quest to become the 45th President of the United States of America.

For example, yesterday they were floating the lie that ousted FBI Director James Comey was booted after wanting most money with which to fund an investigation of President Trump’s unproven “collusion” with Russia.

The depth of their grief and the blind rage of their never-ending temper tantrum has evidently wiped out any vestiges of journalistic integrity that remained after decades of being the Propaganda Arm of the Democratic Party.

As Trump so rightly and repeatedly pointed out, the Main Stream Media are so upset about Hillary’s loss that they have retaliated by publishing “Fake News” is the hope that somehow, someway they can succeed in driving Mr. Trump out of office and that, in doing so, somehow, someway, they Presidency would be given as a “Participation Trophy” to the Failed Party Presidential Candidate.

Pretty pathetic, huh?

President Trump will never be able to please the Main Stream Media.

Nor should he have to.

The Presidency of the United States of America is the most important leadership position on the Face of God’s Green Earth.

The Main Stream Media knows that.

The problem is, as stated earlier, the Main Stream Media is still having a conniption fit (Southern colloquialism for being upset over something to the point insanity) over the fact that us rubes here in the Heartland did not listen to what they were telling us to do and voted for Donald J. Trump over their Candidate of Choice, the Queen of Mean, Hillary Clinton.

The Main Stream Media not only lost their meal ticket with the defeat of the Queen of Mean, Hillary Clinton, but they also must face the reality of being “punked” for at least four years by Donald J. Trump, who treats them like a school of Largemouth Bass, baiting the hook with the promise of a big announcement or story, causing them to pack the room wherever Trump is speaking, only to find out that they have been used to gain free publicity for Mr. Trump and whatever cause he is trying to forward that day.

Or, he just flat-out “trolls” them, as he did by announcing Comey’s firing the day before he met with the Russian Foreign Minister.

Or, as he did in this case, refusing to play nice with them when they slander him, he confronts them, like Daniel in the Lion’s Den and speaks his piece in a forthright and honest manner.

Trump has made the Media look tremendously naïve and stupid on several occasions, in scenes reminiscent of Lucy Van Pelt promising to hold the football for Charlie Brown to kick, only to pull it away at the last minute leaving a helpless Charlie Brown to wipe out, tumbling head over heels.

The Main Stream Media are no longer in control of the dissemination of the news…and they know it.

Between Trump’s playing them like Charlie Daniels playing a fiddle and average Americans becoming their own reporters through the use of Social Media, “professional journalists” have watched their influence over the daily lives of Americans dwindle and diminish right before their very eyes.

And, quite frankly, they don’t like it one bit.

That is why they continue to try to bring down Trump.

The problem that the hellhounds of the Main Stream Media face is the fact that in order to  have access to President Donald J. Trump and to be able to file news reports covering the actions that he is going to take as President, they are going to have to accurately report what actually happens.

As they continue to learn the hard way, the 45th President of the United States of America will not suffer unsubstantiated slander or the fools who report it, gladly.

President Abraham Lincoln said,

Better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak and remove all doubt. 

Ask Lester Holt.

Taking UMBRAGE: The “Russians” May Not Have Been Russian. “Oh, What a Tangled Web We Weave…”

March 8, 2017

cia-mind-control-esteban-santiago-1024x526-1-1024x526

I’m concerned that too much power will end up in the hands of too few. It’s always in somebody’s best interests to promote enemies, real or imagined. – Bill Sullivan (Robert DeNiro,), “The Good Shepherd”, 2006, (A movie about the early history of the CIA.)

USA Today reports that

A division of the Central Intelligence Agency stockpiled hacking techniques culled from other hackers, giving the agency the ability to leave behind the “fingerprints” of the outside hackers when it broke into electronic devices, the anti-secrecy group WikiLeaks alleges as it released thousands of documents Tuesday.

WikiLeaks says it acquired the documents from a source who wished to propel a debate about whether CIA’s hacking capabilities exceed the agency’s legal powers. If authentic, the documents appear to show that the CIA’s hacking division has developed software that enables the agency to break into smartphones, computers and even turn Internet-connected televisions into microphones.

The documents also suggest that one of the agency’s divisions – the Remote Development Branch’s UMBRAGE Group – may have been cataloguing hacking methods from outside hackers, including in Russia, that would have allowed the agency to mask their identity by employing the method during espionage.

“With UMBRAGE and related projects the CIA cannot only increase its total number of attack types, but also misdirect attribution by leaving behind the ‘fingerprints’ of the groups that the attack techniques were stolen from,” Wikileaks said in a statement.

The CIA, which keeps its organizational structure below the directorate level classified, declined to comment on the WikiLeaks document release and would not confirm that the hacking and cataloguing programs exists. USA TODAY has not been able to independently confirm the authenticity of the documents nor seen anything in them so far to indicate the tools were used in the U.S. – or at all.

The agency’s Center for Cyber Intelligence(CCI) produced more than a thousand hacking systems, trojans, viruses, and other “weaponized” malware, according to the documents. The malware and hacking tools were developed by the agency’s Engineering Development Group (EDG) within the CCI.

The EDG described its mission innocuously in one document: “To be the premiere development shop customized hardware and software solutions for Information Operations: utilizing operating system knowledge, hardware design, software craftsmanship, and network expertise to support the (Information Operations Center) Mission.” Another document says the EDG “develops software exploits and implants for high priority target cell phones for intelligence collection.”

The documents describe how the engineering team develops software to target individual cellphones for surveillance, suggesting that it is not attempting to infiltrate cellphones in bulk. For example, its guide says “completed software implants must be tested on an exact version … of the target phone.”

The documents also describe, in very general terms, collaboration among U.S. and other intelligence services to hack into various electronic devices. For example, one document suggests the U.S. National Security Agency purchased an exploit called “Earth/Eve,” which it shared with the CIA, and with GCHQ, the Britain’s main signals intelligence agency. The same documents list another exploit purchased under an NSA contract but “implemented by” GCHQ.

UMBRAGE catalogued software that tracks what physical actions a user is taking through the keyboard or mouse, collects passwords, captures webcams, and other hacking techniques, the documents show.

Among the treasure trove of documents, one refers to two common ways to hack a webcam operating on a Windows system. In another document, analysts comment on the pros and cons of certain key-logging hacks. Other documents note “anti-sandboxing” techniques that agency hackers can use to avoid malware detection by the subject of their surveillance.

If the release of the documents—which Wikileaks dubbed the Vault 7 archive—are proven to be authentic, it would mark the most significant leak of classified U.S. intelligence documents since the release of tens of thousands of documents taken from the National Security Agency by Edward Snowden in 2013.

Nathan White, a senior legislative manager at the international group Access Now, said that the stockpiling of digital vulnerabilities—without working with technology companies to patch them—hurts the cause of digital security.

“Many of these vulnerabilities could have been responsibly disclosed and patched,” White said. “This leak proves the inherent digital risk of stockpiling vulnerabilities rather than fixing them.”

Rush Limbaugh had some interesting things to say about these revelations, especially the UMBRAGE Program…

In other words, the CIA has the ability to hack anybody they want and make it look like the Russians are doing it or make it look like the ChiComs are doing it or make it look like the Israelis are doing it. They have the ability to do this. They have the ability to mask and mock various other state actors and make it look like — so I think because of everything that we’re learning here, the danger that Donald Trump has faced ever since he won the election is greater than we’ve ever known. And it is obvious to me that this whole business — well, I say obvious, I’m leaning toward being near certain that this entire pretext of Trump working with the Russians to affect the outcome of the election, folks, it is so ridiculous.

The Democrats have to know and they have to have known all along it didn’t really happen. There isn’t any evidence for it, and nobody has come forth in all these media reports, they’ve found not a single source that can confirm this, because it didn’t happen. But that’s only the pretext. The allegation is what permitted this ongoing investigation of Trump and, say, of Michael Flynn and whatever else was going on.

But once you establish in the minds of the media and in the minds of some in the public that the election was fraudulent, that somebody tampered with our sacred electoral process and that it might have been Donald Trump himself working with the Russians, why, then the door’s open wide and everybody wants you to get to the bottom of it. Which is exactly what the media and the Democrats, the American left, the establishment, exactly what they wanted, a pretext to have a never-ending investigation of Trump.

All the while, I think they probably knew there was nothing to the actual substance of the allegation. And in fact, the longer it went with no proof, the better, as evidenced by people like Thomas Friedman. (paraphrased) “Yep, there’s no evidence; that’s why we must investigate. It’s a serious charge! If it really happened, we’ve gotta find out. We’ve gotta get to the bottom of it.” And that opened the floodgates. That opened the doors of possibility for the establishment, the CIA, the deep state, the Democrats, the media to have never-ending investigations.

For the FBI to have a never-ending investigation of Trump and of his campaign and of his presidency, of his administration, of the people in it, and it’s exactly what we’re watching now: A never-ending investigation of every Trump appointee or nominee, an attempt to stop as many Trump executive orders as possible. Now, it’s gonna take weeks or longer to understand all the implications of the data in the WikiLeaks CIA dump. But one matter is abundantly clear to me. Someone who really supports Trump is trying to counter what’s happening to him.

There’s a whistleblower somewhere. I don’t know if it’s another Edward Snowden, but somebody in there has leaked these documents to WikiLeaks. Folks, 8,000. It’s called Vault 7, and it’s gonna take a long time to go through all of these. But it looks to me like somebody who supports Trump somewhere in the deep state is trying to impede and impugn the integrity of all of these investigations. And at the same time I think whoever did this, if it’s one person or many — whoever he, she, or they are — there’s no doubt in my mind that the Obama administration’s reputation is also under attack here. Because most of what the WikiLeaks CIA release contains is what the CIA has been doing during the Obama years, specifically 2013 to 2016. And you throw Trump’s weekend tweet into this that Obama was hacking him. I want to go back to something I said yesterday about the FISA court and these warrants. When it comes to national security warrants, it’s entirely possible that Trump has seen them. His attorney general, Jeff Sessions, could go get the applications. It is entirely… Now, no FISA warrant to my knowledge has ever been made public, since the FISA court was first begun in the Carter years in 1978.

I don’t think any of these requests, these warrants, applications for warrants have ever been released. But somebody in any administration can go look at them. They’re precisely in the executive branch, and the president and his attorney general would have unquestionable, unquestioned access to them. I find it fascinating that Trump’s allegation is timed in such a way that maybe somebody’s actually seen evidence that such a request was made to wiretap Trump Tower or Trump personally.

But you look at Trump’s weekend tweets, this CIA leak to WikiLeaks or the dump to WikiLeaks about the CIA is even more and more curious. The timing is exquisite.

So, has someone released this new information to WikiLeaks on behalf of Trump?

Is Trump absolutely right concerning all of his accusations about the “shadow government” within our Federal Government”?

Does it, indeed, reach all the way to George Soros, Barack Hussein Obama, Valerie Jarret, and other key players in Obama’s Administration?

How many “Deep State” holdovers from the Obama Administration are, even now, working to sabotage the plans of President Donald J. Trump?

Who can the President trust?

I wrote the other day that I thought that we were all in the middle of a Tom Clancy Novel being played out in real life.

The only way for a happy ending to this real life spy novel is for the 45th President of the United States to fulfill another one of his campaign Promises and “Drain the Swamp”, i.e., the Justice Department and all of the “alphabet agencies” of disloyal embedded operatives left behind by previous Administrations.

As Julius Caesar found out the hard way, in government, there is always someone looking to stab you in the back.

President Trump needs to get this accomplished as soon as possible.

After all, the Ides of March is only a week from today.

And there is, enough back stabbing going on already.

Until He Comes,

From Watergate to Towergate: Even With Obama’s “Eavesdropping” and Obfuscating, Trump is Still President

March 5, 2017

all-ears-jpeg-sm

Early in the morning of June 17, 1972, several burglars were arrested inside the office of the Democratic National Committee (DNC), located in the Watergate building in Washington, D.C. This was no ordinary robbery: The prowlers were connected to President Richard Nixon’s reelection campaign, and they had been caught while attempting to wiretap phones and steal secret documents. While historians are not sure whether Nixon knew about the Watergate espionage operation before it happened, he took steps to cover it up afterwards, raising “hush money” for the burglars, trying to stop the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) from investigating the crime, destroying evidence and firing uncooperative staff members. In August 1974, after his role in the Watergate conspiracy had finally come to light, the president resigned. His successor, Gerald Ford, immediately pardoned Nixon for all the crimes he “committed or may have committed” while in office. Although Nixon was never prosecuted, the Watergate scandal changed American politics forever, leading many Americans to question their leadership and think more critically about the presidency. (courtesy of www.history.com)

And now, Foxnews.com reports that

Former President Obama on Saturday denied President Trump’s accusation that Obama had Trump Tower phones tapped in the weeks before the November 2016 election.

“Neither President Obama nor any White House official ever ordered surveillance on any U.S. citizen. Any suggestion otherwise is simply false,” said Kevin Lewis, a spokesman for the former president.

Trump made the claim in a series of early Saturday morning tweets that included the suggestion that the alleged wiretapping was tantamount to “McCarthyism” and “Nixon/Watergate.” 

“Terrible! Just found out that Obama had my ‘wires tapped’ in Trump Tower just before the victory. Nothing found. This is McCarthyism,” Trump tweeted.

“Is it legal for a sitting President to be ‘wire tapping’ a race for president prior to an election? Turned down by court earlier. A NEW LOW!” he said in another tweet.

Trump also tweeted that a “good lawyer could make a great case of the fact that President Obama was tapping my phones in October, just prior to Election!”

“How low has President Obama gone to tap (sic) my phones during the very sacred election process. This is Nixon/Watergage. Bad (or sick) guy!” the president continued.

Trump does not specify how he uncovered the Obama administration’s alleged wiretapping.

However, he could be referencing a Breitbart article posted Friday that claimed the administration made two Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISA) requests in 2016 to monitor Trump communications and a computer server in Trump Tower, related to possible links with Russian banks.

No evidence was found.

The article was based on a segment by radio host Mark Levin.

However, the timelines for each seems to draw from a range of news reports over the last several months, including those from The New York Times and Heat Street. 

Lewis also said Saturday: “A cardinal rule of the Obama administration was that no White House official ever interfered with any independent investigation led by the Department of Justice.”

Former Obama foreign policy adviser Ben Rhodes tweeted earlier in the day: “No President can order a wiretap. Those restrictions were put in place to protect citizens from people like you.”

During Trump’s Saturday morning tweets, he also brought up the ongoing controversy surrounding Attorney General Jeff Sessions and his reported 2016 meetings with Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak.

Trump said the first meeting between Sessions, a senator at the time, and Kislyak was arranged by the Obama administration.

He then said Kislayk also visited the White House nearly two dozen times during the Obama administration.

“Just out: The same Russian Ambassador that met Jess Sessions visited the Obama White House 22 times, and 4 times last year alone,” Trump wrote.

On Friday, Trump fought back against top Democratic lawmakers who are demanding his attorney general’s resignation over past meetings with Russia’s ambassador — after pictures emerged of the same lawmakers in similar meetings, exposing them to “hypocrisy” charges.

Trump tweeted: “I hereby demand a second investigation, after Schumer, of Pelosi for her close ties to Russia, and lying about it.

To paraphrase the late, great Yogi Berra,

Is this “deja vu…all over again”?

According to Rush Limbaugh,

We are witnessing — right in front of our eyes — a silent coup to unseat and render effectively immaterial Donald Trump as president of the United States. The real Russian scandal is the collusion between Barack Obama and his administration and the Russians. Obama’s team used the pretext of Russian interference in the election to justify wiretaps and illegal leaks of the Trump team, including a U.S. senator and now attorney general. What has really gone on here — and I just want to repeat what I said in the opening of the hour, ’cause it wasn’t happenstance, and I mean it.The real collusion between our government and the Russians happened with Barack Obama and Vladimir Putin and the Russians. And just to reiterate, I want you to remember some things. Just ask yourself: How far back do you have to go into the campaign before you remember hearing that Trump and Putin were buddies? Remember when Trump is getting all excited about the fact that Putin was praising him and then Trump wouldn’t release tax returns? So there became a new narrative and that is that Trump and Putin are good buddies, and this could be very bad for the United States.

The way it manifests itself is Trump is such an idiot, he’s such a neophyte, he’s such an outsider, he doesn’t know things. He doesn’t understand, and he wants to sidle up to Putin just ’cause he likes Putin ’cause Putin likes him. You know, Trump’s such a sophomore. So Trump really poses a great danger because Putin doesn’t like him and Putin doesn’t like us and Putin is playing Trump for a fool and all that. So that gets the ball rolling that there’s a tie, that there’s a connection — a bromance, if you will — between Putin and Trump. And there isn’t.

The real bromance is Barack Obama and the Russians. That makes more sense ideologically, it makes more sense politically, and it makes more sense historically. We know that Obama has worked with Putin on the disarming of the United States nuclear arsenal. We got Obama on tape telling Putin’s number two guy, “Be patient with me. Be patient. I’ll have more flexibility after the election.” But Obama has turned this around, the Democrats have turned this around, and they’re now saying that it is the potential danger of Trump working with the Russians.

They used this “potential danger” to justify wiretaps of Trump’s team during the campaign and the transition, and this is what’s justifying this so-called illegal leaking. If the fake news were not so instantaneously and irrevocably left wing, the effort by an outgoing president to undermine his predecessor using intelligence agencies would be a bigger scandal than Watergate, because that’s what’s going on here. That’s what’s unprecedented. I mean, Truman and Eisenhower hated each other. But when Eisenhower assumed office, Truman went back to the haberdashery in Independence, and that was that.

Except, boys and girls, as we all know, Obama is way too vain and self-serving to do that.

Nope.

The former Petulant President Pantywaist has set up his Command Headquarters for his “Shadow Government” just a few blocks away from the White House and has even moved his “right-hand Iranian” Valerie Jarrett, into the house with him and “Mooch”.

Scary? OH, HECK YEAH.

It is all beginning to resemble a Tom Clancy Novel.

You have a Former Nazi Sympathizer, now a Billionaire “Philanthropist”, funding Far Left Causes. Add to that a disgruntled Former President, desperately trying to ensure that his mission to turn the Greatest Country on the Face of the Earth into a Third World Socialist Paradise is not derailed by the unexpected loss of his hand-picked predecessor to a “Citizen Statesman”.

Faced with the reality of a splintered Democratic Party, which has alienated its base by moving to the Extreme Far Left of the Political Spectrum, this Former President , while still in office, decided to spy on the one candidate who might actually have a chance to beat his own party’s lousy candidate in a fair Presidential Election, through the means of obtaining an order to wire tap his offices.

After that did not help and the Citizen Statesman became the President, the Former Petulant President Pantywaist, encouraged “rebellion”, as if the reality of a nation being torn asunder was some sort of “Star Wars” Movie, through the use of his “benefactor’s”(the Former Nazi Sympathizer) money in the funding of manufactured protests and a Media-Driven, Community -Organizing Assault, which includes the Former President’s own “Organizing For America” Website.

Not unlike the Bolsheviks of the Russian Revolution, this “rebellion”, with their willing accomplices in the Main Stream Media, launched a massive assault, through the dissemination of propaganda, manufactured protests, and Fake News, in order to somehow diminish the sitting President, in the hopes of regaining their lost power and continuing their mission, inspired by Karl Marx and Saul Alinsky.

Unfortunately for them, they have underestimated the power of the New Media and the resiliency of the average American, here in the Heartland, who stopped believing their lies some time ago.

And now, with the revelation that came out yesterday, that the Political Elite of both political parties knew of the specious wire tapping, this weakens the momentum of the Shadow Government’s Rebellion and strengthens the resolve of both the sitting President and the average Americans who voted him into office, against all odds.

Because, you see, boys and girls, most average Americans, out here in the Heartland, can smell a truckload of manure coming down the road at us from a mile away.

Until He Comes,

The Dems Attack on AG Sessions Backfires. “Let He Who is Without Sin…”

March 4, 2017

170303-vladimir-putin-chuck-shcumer-157p_a5145162fc8260d1210017a24e4505fe-nbcnews-ux-2880-1000

The day before yesterday, the Liberal “Fourth Estate” was consumed with self-congratulatory delight over the possibility that they and their masters, The Democratic Party, had succeeded in striking another blow against President Donald J. Trump, in their quest to make him “step down” and hand the presidency over to their beloved Hillary Clinton.

It didn’t happen.

And then, yesterday, the Democrats found out what happens when you point an accusing finger at somebody:

You get three fingers point back at you.

Or, to put it another way, as Christ told the men who were about to stone the (presumed) loose woman…

“All right, but let the one who has never sinned throw the first stone!” – John 8:7, New Living Translation

Foxnews.com reports that

Democrats were aghast after learning Attorney General Jeff Sessions met twice, as a senator, with Russia’s ambassador to the U.S. without telling Congress at his confirmation hearing – but it turns out Sergey Kislyak is no stranger to lawmakers on both sides of the aisle.

The longtime Russian ambassador met with seven then-Democratic senators in a single sit-down in 2013, among other discussions – and reportedly was a frequent visitor to the Obama White House.

As House Speaker Paul Ryan put it Thursday, “We meet with ambassadors all the time.”

The central issue dogging Sessions is not so much that he met with the ambassador but that he claimed during his confirmation hearing he had no “communications” with Russian officials during his time as a Trump campaign surrogate. In a press conference, though, Sessions rejected claims he misled Congress and suggested he was answering in the context of campaign-related discussions, which he maintains he never had. 

But some Sessions critics nevertheless portrayed meetings with Kislyak, whose country was accused of meddling in the 2016 campaign, as a rare summit, particularly for a member of the Senate Armed Services Committee like Sessions.

The most forceful such statement came from Sen. Claire McCaskill, D-Mo., who tweeted that she had “been on the Armed Services Com for 10 years. No call or meeting w/Russian ambassador. Ever. Ambassadors call members of Foreign Rel Com.”

That was quickly proven untrue.

A pair of tweets first unearthed by National Review’s Charles C.W. Cooke showed McCaskill twice wrote messages about meetings with Kislyak, in 2013 and 2015.

“Off to meeting w/Russian Ambassador. Upset about the arbitrary/cruel decision to end all U.S. adoptions, even those in process,” McCaskill tweeted on Jan. 30, 2013.

On Aug. 6, 2015, McCaskill wrote: “Today calls with British, Russian, and German ambassadors re: Iran deal. #doingmyhomework.”

McCaskill later blamed Twitter’s character limit for the seeming disparity in her claims, suggesting the limit prevented her from being more specific in Thursday’s tweet. She told The Weekly Standard there was “no contradiction,” and clarified she never had a “one-on-one meeting” with the ambassador.

FactCheck.org still labeled McCaskill’s claim as “false.”

McCaskill’s 2013 meeting was the one involving a total of seven Democratic senators. She joined several Republicans and six other Democratic senators that day in an appeal to Kislyak for Moscow to reverse its blockade of U.S. adoptions of Russian children.

Other Democratic senators in that meeting were: Sens. Mary Landrieu of Louisiana, Maria Cantwell of Washington, Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota, Jack Reed of Rhode Island, Robert Casey of Pennsylvania and Sheldon Whitehouse of Rhode Island.

Klobuchar said in a statement afterward that she was able to tell Kislyak the stories of families she met in Minnesota. Landrieu is no longer a senator after losing her seat in 2014. 

President Trump also took a shot Friday at top Democrats seeking to expose his supposed Russia ties – tweeting out a newly unearthed photo of a younger Sen. Chuck Schumer and Vladimir Putin enjoying coffee and donuts.

“We should start an immediate investigation into @SenSchumer and his ties to Russia and Putin. A total hypocrite!” Trump tweeted. 

Schumer tweeted back: “Happily talk re: my contact w Mr. Putin & his associates, took place in ’03 in full view of press & public under oath. Would you &your team?” 

While Putin has had contact with U.S. officials for decades, Kislyak also would be a familiar face for longtime Washington lawmakers. He’s been the ambassador to the U.S. since 2008, and served in various posts representing the former Soviet Union in the 1980s.

“I’ve met with the Russian ambassador with a group, in my capacity, with a group of other senators,” Sen. Joe Manchin, D-W.Va., told CNN. “That’s in my official capacity. That’s nothing. That’s my job.”

Republican Missouri Sen. Roy Blunt, defending Sessions, said he’s spoken with the Russian ambassador as well.

Meanwhile, The Daily Caller reported that Kislyak is listed as visiting the White House at least 22 times between 2009 and 2016. They likely were a mix of personal meetings and group visits. Roughly half of the visits involved broader receptions with other visitors.

Sessions, at his press conference, downplayed any intrigue behind his meetings with the ambassador last year, including one in September at his office. He said they discussed terrorism and Ukraine, among other topics.

Sessions, in trying to tamp down the controversy, announced he would recuse himself from any investigations pertaining to the campaign, amid bipartisan pressure to separate himself from probes regarding Russian meddling in the race.

But some Democrats are still calling for his resignation, and a special prosecutor.

“It is insufficient for Attorney General Sessions to recuse himself from any matters concerning the presidential campaign. He must resign,” House Democratic Whip Steny Hoyer said in a statement late Thursday.

As the past few days have continued to show, the Main Stream Media remain the Vanguard of the National Temper Tantrum which America has witnessed from Modern Liberals since Donald J. Trump was elected the President of the United States of America.

The Liberal Democrats just cannot come to grips that their “perfect” candidate was, in fact, a lousy pick and a hateful, inept, downright mean individual whom they never should have nominated as their Presidential Choice.

One of their arguments has been that Trump did not win the Popular Vote, a “fact” which is suspicious at best and one which is being investigated even as I write this post, with illegal aliens have voted already being discovered in California.

As I have stated before,  the Electoral College was put in place to prevent what the Liberals are still trying to accomplish, which is choosing a President based on the favored Political Ideology of isolated Metropolitan Areas with dense populations.

The Democrats, as a result of their own regional bias toward the major metropolitan areas on the East and West Coasts, which has been obvious to average Americans for the last several decades, effectively divorced themselves from the people whom they claimed in every previous election cycle to “love”…Average Working Class Americans.

To put it in Marital Terms, Average Working Class Americans and the Democratic Party are no longer “evenly yoked”.

The Democrats became the party of the “Upper Crust” and Special Interest Groups, who look down their noses at Americans who live here in “Flyover Country”.

The Democrats assumed, after reading their own press clippings, that all Americans wanted the Progressive/Marxist Political Ideology and style of governance which Barack Hussein Obama practiced during his time as President.

Well, we all know what assuming does, don’t we, boys and girls?

The American People overthrew the “Tyranny of the Minority”, which we have suffered under for the last 8 years on November 8th.

Since then, the Democrats and their minions in the Main Stream Media have thrown everything, including the kitchen sink at President Trump and His Administration.

However, guess what, boys and girls?

The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Friday shows that 53% of Likely U.S. Voters approve of President Trump’s job performance. Forty-seven percent (47%) disapprove. The latest figures include 37% who Strongly Approve of the way Trump is performing and 36% who Strongly Disapprove. This gives him a Presidential Approval Index rating of +1. (see trends).

This rolling three-day survey now includes two nights following the president’s nationally televised speech to a joint session of Congress and shows a three-point improvement in his overall approval rating since then. – Rasmussenreports.com

All of this past week’s “Fake News Events” manufactured by the Democrats have been a bunch of “sound and fury…signifying nothing”.

The Democrats had better wake up, grow up, and realize that all this fake news being pushed incessantly is going to backfire and the Dems aren’t going to have another President for 20 years.

Much Ado About Nothing: “The Russians Did It! The Russians Did it!” No, They Didn’t. AMERICANS DID.

“The search for a scapegoat is the easiest of all hunting expeditions.” ― Dwight D. Eisenhower

CNSNews.com reported yesterday that

The official unclassified report that the Director of National Intelligence released yesterday giving the “analytic assessment” of U.S. intelligence agencies on “Russian activities and intentions in recent U.S. elections” states that the Department of Homeland Security assessed that Russia did not target or compromise systems used in counting votes in U.S. elections. 
This comports with a statement DNI James Clapper made Thursday in the Senate Armed Services Committee–and which CNSNews.com reported on Thursday.

“They did not change any vote tallies or anything of that sort,” Clapper said of the Russians during the committee hearing.

One of the written report’s “key judgments” states: “Russian intelligence obtained and maintained access to elements of multiple US state or local electoral boards. DHS assesses that the types of systems Russian actors targeted or compromised were not involved in vote tallying.”

The report released by the DNI uses bold type to emphasize the second sentence of this “key judgment:” 

The report goes on to repeat that while Russia “accessed elements of multiple state and local electoral boards,” the Department of Homeland Security did not see Russia “targeting or compromising” systems involved in vote counting.

The report said:

“Russian Cyber Intrusions Into State and Local Electoral Boards. Russian intelligence accessed elements of multiple state or local electoral boards. Since early 2014, Russian intelligence has researched US electoral processes and related technology and equipment.

“–DHS assesses that the types of systems we observed Russian actors targeting or compromising are not involved in vote tallying.”

The report provided an assessment of the extent of Russian “cyber espionage” of “U.S. political organizations” during the election—which the intelligence community believes included not only the Democratic National Committee, but also primary campaigns, think tanks and lobbying groups.

The report said:

“Cyber Espionage Against US Political Organizations. Russia’s intelligence services conducted cyber operations against targets associated with the 2016 US presidential election, including targets associated with both major US political parties.

“We assess Russian intelligence services collected against the US primary campaigns, think tanks, and lobbying groups they viewed as likely to shape future US policies. In July 2015, Russian intelligence gained access to Democratic National Committee (DNC) networks and maintained that access until at least June 2016.

Furthermore, a Fox News Poll, released December 17, 2016 states that

A majority of American voters think there was no real effect on the presidential race from Russian cyber-attacks, according to a new Fox News Poll.  

CIA officials reportedly believe Russian hackers meddled in the election to help Donald Trump beat Hillary Clinton.  Yet 59 percent of voters believe the hacking didn’t make a difference.  

The poll finds 32 percent think Russia did help Trump in the election, while just one percent says the cyber-attacks aided Clinton.

Okay. All of this begs the question…

Why are Obama and all of his sycophantic followers, from the Washington Elite to 30-year old Internet Trolls, living in their Mom’s Basement, still feverishly pushing such a laughingly false excuse for the horrible loss they endured in the 2016 Presidential Election?

Is it because

a) They are all living in an alternate reality?

b) They all saw nude pictures of Rosie O’Donnell on Facebook and experienced a psychotic break as a result of the trauma?

c) They cannot believe that their political ideology and the candidate which they chose to espouse it, was so emphatically rejected by the Electoral Majority of the American People.

If you chose “c”, you answered correctly.

If you even thought about answer “b”, grab some mind bleach…STAT!

Since I began writing these daily missives in April of 2010, I have always been fascinated by the fact that Modern American Liberals unfailingly overestimate their own intelligence and the acceptance of the American People of their hubris and didactic condescension.

They themselves have never accepted the fact that Liberalism is the minority political ideology in the United States of America and no amount of push polls, manufactured statistics, photo ops, or bald-faced political lies and chicanery can change that.

On November 8th, 2016, average Americans, who had become fed up, after 8 years of poor leadership, non-existent stewardship, empty promises, a dwindling American Work Force, and a Federal Government who represented themselves and not the will and wishes of average Americans, stood up on their hind legs and did something about it.

To say that blaming Clinton’s defeat on the Russians strains credulity, is an understatement.

Nobody here in “Flyover Country” believes that garbage…especially since it comes from the same liars who told us that the Benghazi Massacre was caused by a video.

WE, THE AMERICAN PEOPLE, WERE RESPONSIBLE FOR HILLARY CLINTON LOSING THE PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION.

YOU LOST, LIBERALS. GET OVER IT AND MOVE ON.

FOR OUR COUNTRY’S SAKE.

Until He Comes,
