Dozens of good-news links on immigration, the judiciary, the economy, energy and enviro policy, the campus war on men, the intrusive regulatory state, the swamp and Deep State in general, and more.
Even the Washington Post (!) mentions – in a headline! – that Tony Podesta has resigned from the Podesta Group as a consequence of Mueller’s investigation:
The first paragraph:
“Tony Podesta, a Democratic power lobbyist, announced to colleagues Monday that he is stepping down amid a series of indictments that cast a shadow on work his firm had done with Paul Manafort that may have benefited a Ukrainian regime friendly to the Kremlin.”
Second, NBC News says,
Podesta Group, Mercury Are Companies ‘A’ and ‘B’ in Indictment
The indictment, unsealed Monday, refers to “Company A” and “Company B” as the firms Manafort and Gates solicited in 2012 to lobby on behalf of the Ukranian government.
Tony Podesta, who founded the left-leaning Podesta Group in 1988, stepped down from his position with the firm on Monday morning, an employee told NBC News.
Tony Podesta is the brother of Hillary Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta, who is not under investigation.
And HOLY SHIT! Another NBC News piece has THIS as its HEADLINE!!!!:
Mueller Now Investigating Democratic Lobbyist Tony Podesta
For a major Old Media organization to be reporting on a Democrat being investigated like this is surprising, but to put the fact that he’s a Democrat in the headline – whew! That’s new, seriously new.
Then, just yesterday, Donna Brazile absolutely hangs Hillary out to dry – in Politico! – in an exerpt from her forthcoming book:
Brazile rips into Clinton for taking over the Democratic National Committee, in terms of finances and decision-making power, before the 2016 Democratic nomination contest had even begun, let alone concluded. In other words, Clinton took over the party apparatus that was supposed to oversee a fair nomination contest between Clinton and others like Sanders. That is, one of the players in the game managed to get herself appointed referee of the game.
Brazile is a corrupt and self-serving asshole, but never mind that for now. The important thing is that the anti-Clinton preference cascade continues.
Good post on the God-Emperor’s UN speech at Musings of the Angry Webmaster:
Trump Shocks and Awes the United Nations
First, my man Trumpy hails the idea of sovereign, independent nations:
We do not expect diverse countries to share the same cultures, traditions, or even systems of government. But we do expect all nations to uphold these two core sovereign duties: to respect the interests of their own people and the rights of every other sovereign nation. This is the beautiful vision of this institution, and this is foundation for cooperation and success.
Actually, the first part of that last sentence, that sovereignty is a vision of the UN, is a polite lie – “Your dress looks great, girlfriend!” – and an attempt to get the UN’s would-be world dictators nodding at a pro-sovereignty message. It seems to have worked. Trumpy continues:
Strong, sovereign nations let their people take ownership of the future and control their own destiny. And strong, sovereign nations allow individuals to flourish in the fullness of the life intended by God.
As the Angry Webmaster says, this is “a kick to the groin of the Globalists.” And they deserve a kick to the groin, and then some.
We are renewing this founding principle of sovereignty. Our government’s first duty is to its people, to our citizens — to serve their needs, to ensure their safety, to preserve their rights, and to defend their values.
As President of the United States, I will always put America first, just like you, as the leaders of your countries will always, and should always, put your countries first.
This is more globalist groin-kicking, which is funny, because apparently the assembled globalists applauded it. LOL.
As Angry Webmaster notes, “What he said next shocked the UNGA and the Progressive Elites and their moronic minions in the United States and around the world.”
The United States has great strength and patience, but if it is forced to defend itself or its allies, we will have no choice but to totally destroy North Korea.
Boom! Talk about a line in the sand! Of course, the usual suspects started saying it was belligerent, etc., but such rhetoric was uncharacteristically muted, at least from the tidbits I read. It’s almost as if even leftist idiots have enough sense to realize that North Korea with nuclear ICBMs might be a threat to them.
AW: “This was a flat out threat to North Korea. If that fat little turd tries anything, North Korea will be flattened and paved over. This is language that, to my knowledge, has never been used in the United Nations.” Yup. But Trump didn’t stop there:
The Iran Deal was one of the worst and most one-sided transactions the United States has ever entered into. Frankly, that deal is an embarrassment to the United States, and I don’t think you’ve heard the last of it — believe me.
Trump then went after Cuba and Venezuela.
The man is on track to be up there with Reagan. If he keeps it up, he could end up better than Reagan.
CNN threatens to dox the person who came up with the “Trump slams CNN” vid meme. (See my previous post if you just got back from a trip to Ophiuchus.) Notably, they didn’t dox him and reveal the info or dox him and not reveal the info. They doxxed him and threatened to reveal the info in the future if he did anything they didn’t like. This is at least morally disgusting, punching down, bullying, and thuggish, and it is quite possibly legally actionable blackmail and/or extortion. It seems to me the guy would have a good case on at least the blackmail charge.
This was their attempt to say, “We’re tough guys, and you don’t dare mess with us!”
As a result, of course, seemingly the entire right-wing Internet started creating “beat down CNN” memes. For example, the Hulk/Loki scene from The Avengers, Trump/CNN style.
Jafrillions more are available elsewhere and more being created at a rate of a zillion per second. My humble contribution:
The entire Net, including left-wing commenters, has lit up with revulsion at CNN’s thuggishness. The hashtag CNNBlackmail hit Number 1 in the world on Twitter.
Here are some articles:
‘#CNNBlackmail’ trending No. 1 on Twitter
#CNNBlackmail: Outrage after network appears to threaten Reddit user
‘CNNBlackMail’ #1 Twitter Trend As Network Threatens to Reveal Reddit User’s Identity
CNN does not even understand the kind of war it’s in.
Contemplate the sheer stupidity and incompetence: CNN is apparently a media organization that has never heard of the Streisand Effect.
They’re literally that stupid.
As of this writing, all public-facing CNN Twitter accounts have gone silent and the offending page has been blanked.
From one of Vox Popoli’s posts on the imbroglio, Alice De Goon in the comments:
“Could CNN have stuck their dick any further into the beehive?”
I don’t know, but they’re probably trying.
It’s less than 30 seconds, so go ahead and give it a watch.
Bonus: At the end, there’s a modified CNN logo saying
FNN: Fraud News Network.
The media is in full-bore fainting couch mode over this. (“Something something encourages violence against journalists,” spews the NYT.) They’re still in shock that a right-wing politician is actually fighting back. They still can’t believe that not only have they been identified as an enemy, but that he is treating them like an enemy.
Paraphrasing someone at Vox Popoli (wish I could remember who) from the last couple of months:
It surrenders or it gets the memes again.
God-Emperor, if you chance to read this, note: The Left is screaming at you to drop your Twitter account because it’s working. They’re begging Twitter to close your account because it’s working.
Of course, as a master of engaging your enemies, you already knew that. But it’s fun to say it anyway!
CNN delenda est!
LIGHTNING STRIKE: CNN PRODUCER ADMITS, ON VIDEO, THAT RUSSIA STORY IS “MOSTLY BULLSHIT”:
In the video, when asked whether the Russia story is BS, CNN producer John Bonifield replies,
“Could be bullshit. I mean it’s mostly bullshit right now. Like, we don’t have any giant proof.”
Bonifield explained that CNN’s reason for supporting the Leftist narrative about Russia is “ratings.”
Excellent! As of June 2017, Republicans have won four out of four special elections since the November 2016 election! STILL! NOT! TIRED! OF! WINNING!
The states in which Republican members of the House left to serve in the Trump Administration are Kansas, Montana, South Carolina and, most recently, Georgia.
The Dems are coming up with innumerable excuses for their four straight losses and it has been hilarious. A couple, like hopeless cow Rachel Maddow, have even said it was the weather in the Georgia race. For fuck’s sake, people! You lost four in a row! If that’s not “voters dislike your goals,” then what would be!?
The NYT’s priceless headline: Jon Ossoff, a Democrat, Narrowly Misses Outright Win in Georgia House Race. (No, I’m not going to give them a link.) LOL. They were just tooooooo saaaaaaad to not have the words “Ossoff” and “win” in the same headline, so they forced the weird circumlocution to put the words together. Sane person headline: Handel Wins. Or, Handel Beats Ossoff. (Maybe sounds too close to Handel beats off. How about, Handel Beats Ossoff, Without Lube. Technically true!) Or, if you must focus on the Dem for some reason: Ossoff Loses. Ossoff Looooooossssesssssssss.
Some Dems, in absolute desperation, have been saying that the margin of victory for the GOP candidates has been falling and using that to try to claim a “moral victory” or whatever. One just assumes that this is the usual blatant lying or deliberately misleading BS from the Left, but even if it’s not, it’s exactly what one would expect to see: In the original elections, there was a GOP primary. The GOP candidate most popular among GOP voters got the nomination. Since he was most popular, he got a large number of votes in the general election. Then when he went to DC to serve in the Trump Administration, the next person in line was not as popular among the GOP voters, obviously. So the Dems are saying, “Republican voters don’t like their second choice as much as they like their first choice.” No shit, idiots. And we still whip your asses.
So grok this: Not only can’t the Dems beat the Republicans’ first-best candidate in these races, they can’t even field a candidate to beat the Republicans’ second-best candidate!
Stupid as all this propaganda is, it gets worse. Notice they don’t point out that Handel’s margin of victory was larger than Trump’s margin of victory in November, and thus infer that Republicans’ popularity is rising. And in that particular Georgia district, Trump only beat Felonia von Pantsuit by one point in November 2016, and Handel beat Ossoff by about 4 points in June 2017. So by that metric, there was a 3-point improvement in the GOP’s performance.
Oh, but it gets more ridiculous. In the Georgia race, for example, the Dem in the replacement election, Ossoff, got about the same number of votes (24 fewer, actually) as the Dem in the original election, one Rodney Stooksbury, despite the fact that Stooksbury spent zero dollars in that election! Ossoff spent more than $23 million.
Also, as the foregoing link points out, Democrats didn’t even field a candidate for the district in 2004 or in 2010. So when Dems claim that Republican special election candidates are winning by smaller margins than usual – even if that’s not just the usual leftist lying – it’s compared to Republican victories some of which were blowouts because there wasn’t even a Dem opponent! To coin a phrase: LOL.
In fact, it’s not clear that Rodney Stooksbury exists either. He had no web site, Facebook page, or photo for the press.
So their spinning starts out damn weak, with, “Ha! You didn’t kick our ass as thoroughly as you have in the past!” This is the best attempt to save face they can come up with, which is not surprising since they lost. And it goes from damn weak to unbelievably pathetic when you realize that their complete argument is, “When we actually field a team, you don’t win as thoroughly as when we default due to not showing up!” No kidding.
It’s time to put it to bed, retards. Stop the “trannies in your daughter’s 8th grade bathroom” crap and white genocide vileness. But for this to happen, the old-school leftists who just want more welfare and a 10% larger budget for NPR are going to have to muster the backbone to purge the “trannies and white genocide” crowd from the “Democratic” Party.
