Iran Tried to Hack a 2020 Presidential Candidate As the Media Suddenly Don’t Care About Election Interference

The Democrats’ favorite rogue terrorist regime is at it again. This time they got caught trying to hack a 2020 Presidential candidate, among other government figures, in an apparent attempt to interfere in the coming election.

Here’s the report from Politico.

Hackers linked to the Iranian government have targeted the campaign of at least one 2020 presidential contender, Microsoft announced today in a blog post.

The technology giant also witnessed “significant” digital activity by the group, which it dubbed “Phosphorous,” against current and former U.S. government officials, journalists covering global politics and prominent Iranians living outside of Iran.

Not one major news source is reporting in their headlines who the actual target was. I’ll let you decide if that’s purposeful or not, but we do indeed know the answer.

I have a feeling that if Elizabeth Warren was almost hacked by Russia, for example, that she’d make the headline. Instead, the media are downplaying this as they always do when anything doesn’t play into their narrative. NBC put out a video on it but no print story. The Washington Post tried to spin it as “hundreds targeted” in order to downplay Trump as a victim. CNN couldn’t be bothered to even report it as of this writing.

It’s amazing how a foreign dictatorship trying to hack the 2020 election is all the sudden a page A47 story when it can’t be blamed on Trump. Odd, right? Of course, if Trump now asks for an investigation, he’ll probably be accused of trying to influence the election or something.

This is a serious problem though. For all the gnashing of teeth about Russia, Iran is a more prominent threat right now and they have every reason to see to it that Trump isn’t re-elected. Their dream scenario is to get another weak kneed Democrat to sign another “deal” with that guarantees them the farm. You can expect China to get in on the action as well. Meanwhile, you can also expect the media to not care at all.

CNN’s Don Lemon Sued for Sexual Assault

Westlake Legal Group cnn-banana-620x348 CNN’s Don Lemon Sued for Sexual Assault Sued Sexual Assault Politics Olivier Darcy Mediaite media bias lawsuit irony Hypocrisy Front Page Stories Front Page Featured Story double standards Don Lemon democrats CNN Brian Stelter

Few hosts on CNN are as inflammatory and ridiculous as Don Lemon. While laughably considering himself a “journalist,” he’s a rabid partisan and has spent most of the past few months confidently pronouncing that Donald Trump is a white supremacist and blaming mass shootings on Republicans. He’s also someone who used his platform to savage Brett Kavanaugh during his confirmation hearing. Due process wasn’t a concern of Lemon’s as he hosted guest after guest assailing the character of the now Supreme Court Justice.

Now, the tables have turned as CNN’s own Don Lemon is being sued for sexual assault.

Dustin Hice, the man accusing Lemon of assault, claimed that the CNN host attacked him at Sag Harbor dive bar Murf’s in July 2018. Hice, who was working at the time at another Hamptons bar, alleged that one night at Murf’s he recognized Lemon there. Hice offered to buy him a drink, which the CNN host declined.

Later in the night, according to Hice, Lemon approached him and his group of friends and, after putting his hand down his shorts he “vigorously rubbed his genitalia” and “shoved his index and middle fingers into [Hice’s] moustache.”

Did this actually happen? I don’t know. The description of events is pretty specific but that’s hardly dispositive. What I do know that CNN has previously set the standard that lack of evidence doesn’t matter when they are targeting their political opponents.

But because this is one of their own, CNN has suddenly decided that questioning motives is appropriate.

“The plaintiff in this lawsuit has previously displayed a pattern of contempt for CNN on his social media accounts,” a CNN spokesperson told Mediaite in a statement. “This claim follows his unsuccessful threats and demands for an exorbitant amount of money from Don Lemon. Don categorically denies these claims and this matter does not merit any further comment at this time.”

This is a benefit of the doubt that CNN has never given to anyone on the right side of the aisle. To now see them cite things like a “pattern of contempt” and previous malice to discredit an accuser is incredibly ironic. Oddly enough, Brian Stelter and Oliver Darcy, who spend most of their time attacking any semblance of controversy in right wing media, have remained silent on this.

We’ll see where this goes, but it could get ugly if Hice has any witnesses to the behavior described. Don’t expect CNN to operate in any consistent manner regardless.

Joe Biden Loses It, Offers Condolences to Wrong Locations After Mass Shootings

Westlake Legal Group bidendummy-620x388 Joe Biden Loses It, Offers Condolences to Wrong Locations After Mass Shootings senile Politics Old Ohio Misstatement Michigan Joe Biden Houston gaffe Front Page Stories Front Page Featured Story El Paso double standards democrats dayton Aging 2020

Joe Biden’s biggest flaw in the 2020 race is the fact that he’s noticeably aging in front of voters’ eyes. For much of the campaign, he’s attempted to remain in hiding, only showing his face for the occasional teleprompter speech or the debates, which he’s forced to endure.

Following two tragic mass shootings in El Paso and Dayton, some 2020 Democrat candidates blamed Trump and racism to score political points despite the fact that the Dayton shooter was an avowed socialist and Sanders/Warren supporter. Some yelled about Fox News. One candidate even fund-raised off of it.

Joe Biden, on the other hand, apparently doesn’t even know what day it is.

Former Vice President Joe Biden misstated the locations of mass shootings in El Paso, Texas, and Dayton, Ohio, while speaking to donors at a high-dollar fundraiser in San Diego on Sunday night.

Biden, 76, mistakenly referred to the shootings as “the tragic events in Houston today and also in Michigan the day before,” but later corrected himself, according to a pool report. Biden seemingly confused Houston for El Paso and Michigan for Ohio when speaking to donors about the shootings.

Imagine being so high profile and not knowing what the locations of the two mass shootings that had just taken place a day earlier. How does one make that mistake? The simple answer is that Biden is just old. No, I don’t think he’s going to fall over dead tomorrow, but he appears to have even worse faculties than you’d expect from a nearly 80 year old man. He routinely misstates things. At the debate the other night he made no less than 9 verbal gaffes, including asking people to “Go to Joe 30330,” seemingly not knowing that he wasn’t citing a website. Other times he simply appeared confused.

As a political exercise, I’d like you to imagine what the media would do if Donald Trump misstated the locations of both of these mass shootings. Heck, let’s say he just flubbed the name of one of them. It would result in wall to wall coverage, mostly asserting that Trump cares so little for the victims that he couldn’t even bother to learn the names of the cities the shootings took place in. They wouldn’t be wrong either. If you are the President or running for President, you should be lucid and knowledgeable enough to not think shootings that took place in El Paso and Dayton happened in Houston and Michigan. Because it’s Biden though, it’s just brushed aside because he has the right politics.

This is a problem for him going forward. The “sleepy Joe” label has stuck and he’s reinforcing its truth every time he speaks publicly. It’s worth remembering we are still well over a year out from the election. What will Biden’s disposition be like next summer after a year of campaigning? The odds are it won’t be good.

Beto O’Rourke Assigns Blame for the El Paso Shooting

Westlake Legal Group el-paso-shooting-1-620x465 Beto O’Rourke Assigns Blame for the El Paso Shooting white supremacist racist Politics Ideology Gross Front Page Stories Front Page Featured Story El Paso Shooting double standards donald trump Disgusting democrats democrat dayton shooting Beto O'Rourke 2020

Law enforcement work the scene of a shooting at a shopping mall in El Paso, Texas, on Saturday, Aug. 3, 2019. Multiple people were killed and one person was in custody after a shooter went on a rampage at a shopping mall, police in the Texas border town of El Paso said. (AP Photo/Rudy Gutierrez)

There have been two mass shootings in the past 24 hours, one in El Paso, TX and the other in Dayton, OH. We are still waiting on a lot of details to be made clear. There’s currently a manifesto floating around that hasn’t been confirmed to belong to the first shooter, but regardless, it’s fairly certain what his ideology was.

As always happens after shootings like these, politicians rush to play politics. For many, that takes the form of renewed calls for gun control. What those measures are or how they’d prevent said shootings is almost never made clear. There won’t be any rational conversations taking place over the next few days on possible solutions. Just a lot of painting one’s political opponents as evil.

Beto O’Rourke decided to enter that fray yesterday.

Currently sitting near the bottom of the Democratic field, I suppose Beto felt the need to make headlines. Blaming the President for a mass shooting will do the trick.

I’m in no mood to talk politics this morning, but I’ll just say this. We still don’t even know the full scale of this maniac shooter’s ideology and people are already rushing to blame Trump and all Republicans because that’s what they always do.

This is a one way street of course. When a Bernie supporter shoots up a baseball field, we are quickly assured that accusing Trump of killing people via Obamacare repeal had nothing to do with it. When an Islamic jihadist kills 49 people at a nightclub, he’s described as a “lone wolf” and we are told it’s insensitive and insulting to expect condemnations from Muslims. When an Antifa member tries to firebomb an ICE facility, the media doesn’t even report on it, much less point out he was using the exact rhetoric Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez was spreading.

Yet, when a white supremacist perpetuates an act of evil we can never just blame the shooter and the radical ideology being propagated on garbage sites like 8chan. Instead, everything suddenly broadens into every Republican being responsible, including the President. No Republican, including Trump, has ever called people to shoot up Wal-Marts or bars. Period. The person to blame here is the shooter and a gross ideology.

Beto O’Rourke is not a serious person. To come out and try to make this about himself by ranting for the cameras that the President is a racist who is responsible for this shooting is simply disgusting. It’s standing on the bodies of the dead to try to try to help yourself politically and deserves condemnation.

Everyone needs to take a step back right now.

Jim Jordan Fillets Mueller on Joseph Mifsud Not Being Charged, Exposes Serious Credibility Issues With the Probe

Westlake Legal Group mueller-house-hearing-2-620x317 Jim Jordan Fillets Mueller on Joseph Mifsud Not Being Charged, Exposes Serious Credibility Issues With the Probe rule of law Robert Mueller republicans Politics obfuscation Nonsensical Mueller report Mueller Hearing Lying to the FBI joseph mifsud Jim Jordan Front Page Stories Front Page Featured Story double standards donald trump democrats

Former special counsel Robert Mueller, is sworn in before he testifies before the House Judiciary Committee hearing on his report on Russian election interference, on Capitol Hill, in Washington, Wednesday, July 24, 2019. (AP Photo/Andrew Harnik)

Today’s hearings have been an absolute disaster for Robert Mueller’s reputation and the Democrat narrative push toward impeachment. Seriously, look up the word disaster in the dictionary, and you’ll see a snapshot from today of Mueller sitting barely lucid before Congress. He couldn’t remember basic details, stammered constantly, and he obviously has no idea what is even in the actual report, that being the report he supposedly wrote.

There are going to be a lot of viral moments from the proceedings, almost all of them dealing with Mueller looking clueless or making nonsensical statements.

One of the major issues brought up today dealt with Joseph Mifsud. If you don’t know who that is, he’s the “informant” that claimed to have Hillary’s emails and appears to have purposely sought out George Papadopoulos to plant that seed. Mifsud also lied to the FBI three times during the course of the investigation.

Given that Mueller had no qualms with charging multiple people with lying to investigators, the natural question is why Mifsud was let off the hook. Rep. Jim Jordan asks that question and absolutely fillets Mueller’s nonsensical and obfuscating response.

Mueller hides behind privilege, claiming he can’t discuss charging decisions, which is absolutely ridiculous. The entire Mueller report is a discussion of charging decisions. Why is Mifsud special? Why was Michael Flynn’s life destroyed over a white lie dealing with something completely mundane, but Joseph Mifsud can lie to the FBI three times and not even be brought in for further questioning?

The answer is simple. Joseph Mifsud wasn’t connected to Donald Trump.

When you go through the Mueller report and who was charged, one thing is clear. Robert Mueller and his team purposely chose to ignore criminality by various actors and only focused on people in Trump’s orbit. That means they give a sweetheart deal to a Ukrainian Oligarch instead of charging him. That means they let a pedophile leave the country and remain uncharged for years because they thought he had dirt on Trump. It means they don’t even interview Christopher Steele after it was known he lied to the FBI. Fusion GPS’s founder, Glenn Simpson, escaped scrutiny as well. This despite him being at the very center of the Trump Tower meeting. In fact, Mueller claimed to not even know what Fusion GPS was.

Despite all of this, we still have some “Republicans” making excuses for this nonsense because they’ve put so much of their own credibility into backing Mueller.

Joseph Mifsud was not a “fruitful foreign intelligence source.” He was a liar who’s actions started an investigation into what turned out to be disgusting smear. It takes an otherworldly level of obtuseness to hand wave away Mifsud’s actions in such a way, but Rothman manages to reach that level. It’s also ironic to see so many “rule of law” conservatives suddenly decide that if you are a “foreign intelligence source” that said laws don’t apply anymore and we should just trust the bureaucracies to make those decisions.

This investigation was a partisan farce and it’s been exposed as such today. Mueller was simply a figurehead. He didn’t write his own report and that’s painfully obvious. He let a group of partisan Democrat boosters like Andrew Weissmann run wild and simply rubber stamped their work. Meanwhile, blatant criminality by people like Steele, Mifsud, and Podesta was completely ignored and covered up with ridiculous claims that they were outside of Mueller’s purview.

Now, we are left to hope the Barr-Durham investigation sheds some light on the misconduct that took place during this entire ordeal. I sincerely hope Barr realizes how important his work is and how reaching conclusions in a timely manner, before the next election, is paramount to rebuilding some kind of public trust after this dumpster fire we witnessed today.

Anti-Semite Ilhan Omar Compares Jewish Israel to Nazi Germany

Westlake Legal Group ilhan-omar-stinkeye-620x317 Anti-Semite Ilhan Omar Compares Jewish Israel to Nazi Germany racist Politics Nancy Pelosi media bias Israel Front Page Stories Front Page Featured Story double standards donald trump democrats Crazy bds antisemitism anti-semite

Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., listens as Office of Management and Budget Acting Director Russell Vought testifies before the House Budget Committee on Capitol Hill in Washington, Tuesday, March 12, 2019, during a hearing on the fiscal year 2020 budget. (AP Photo/Susan Walsh)

But do tell me more about the grave dangers of some randos chanting stupid crap at a Trump rally.

Ilhan Omar, apparently emboldened by recent events, decided it’d be a good idea to drop a resolution supporting the Boycott, Divestment, and Sanction movement this week. That’d be the same BDS movement that even Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer directly called anti-Semitic just weeks ago.

While that would have been bad enough, she also decided it wasn’t insensitive and racist at all to use the resolution to compare Jewish Israel to (checks notes)…Nazi Germany.

This via the Washington Examiner.

Omar introduced a resolution Tuesday in support of groups wanting to boycott Israel while comparing them to the American Jews who boycotted Nazi Germany.

“Americans of conscience have a proud history of participating in boycotts to advocate for human rights abroad, including … boycotting Nazi Germany from March 1933 to October 1941 in response to the dehumanization of the Jewish people in the lead-up to the Holocaust,” the Minnesota Democrat’s resolution stated.

In the hearing, Omar also compared the boycotts of Israel to the Boston Tea Party.

Yes, that’s Omar directly comparing opposing Nazi Germany to opposing Jewish Israel, because they are pretty much the same thing right?

I mean, is there really a difference between a genocidial regime built on delusions of world domination and a small, democratic Jewish state that actually provides medical care for its adversaries and does everything it can to avoid collateral damage, even in the face of constant violent aggression? And it’s not like Nazi Germany sought to exterminate the Jews, necessitating the need for Israel.

Keep in mind, this is the same Ilhan Omar who called sanctions against a brutal dictator in Venezuela “bullying” and would lift sanctions on Iran tomorrow if she could. Yet, for some reason, her tactics toward Israel are different. Now, what could possibly be the distinction present driving her selectiveness in who she wants to boycott, divest, and sanction? Maybe some valiant media outlet should ask her.

This is blatant antisemitism on display. But no one outside of the right will care. The Democrats will excuse it, the media won’t even cover it, and the double standards will continue. If you care about people chanting at a Trump rally, you should care about Omar’s antisemitism.

If you don’t, you are being disingenuous and don’t deserve to have your outrage heard.

Ayanna Pressley Goes On Racially Tinged, Homophobic Rant at Netroots Nation

Netroots Nation continues to not disappoint. We’ve seen all manner of crazy exhibit itself at the mainline progressive conference, from Ilhan Omar saying Palestinian opposition is “non-violent,” to an abortion being demonstrated on a watermelon.

Rep. Ayanna Pressley showed up as well to do the typical rah-rah liberal but this time it got a little out of hand.

Well, alright then.

Let’s game out some hypothetical. Imagine for a moment that this was a Republicans making such callous and dismissive remarks of minority groups. Let’s pretend it’s Ted Cruz at CPAC and he launches into a rant about how “we don’t need brown faces” and “we don’t need queers” who don’t ascribe to his exact political ideology. How would that be received? Would it be a major scandal? Would CNN’s Brian Stelter literally need smelling salts?

Heck, the phrasing alone would have been enough to garner at least 48 hours of indignation from the media if this were a Republican. “We don’t need queers?” I thought the Q word was off-limits for straight people? I mean, we just learned that a few weeks ago when Ben Shapiro got hit for logically proclaiming that he doesn’t understand the rules surrounding the word. Why is it acceptable for a straight woman to yell at gay men and women that she doesn’t need them if they don’t think like her?

Worse, she doesn’t think these brown, black, Muslim, and queer people should even have a voice in the conversation of national politics. That sounds pretty racist and homophobic to me if we are using the contemporary standards set form by modern society.

None of this sat well with some, for obvious reasons.

This is all especially ironic given the current outrage over Donald Trump’s latest tweet storm. We are currently in the middle of a full blown freak out of his supposed racism for sloppily attacking Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s “squad.” Wall to wall coverage is ensuing with the media demanding reaction from every Republican office holder down to your local dog catcher.

Meanwhile, a Democrat Congresswomen can tell entire races, as well as gay people and Muslims that she wants them to shut up and go away if don’t agree with her and it’s all good. No coverage. No outrage. Not even a question of whether her phrasing was off. It’s like it never happened.

This is why the latest demands to condemn Donald Trump will fall on mostly deaf ears. The left and their media enablers have spent decades building ridiculous double standards. These are the same people who couldn’t even be bothered to push back on Ilhan Omar’s anti-Semitic comments. But now I’m supposed to respond with righteous indignation of Trump and proclaim he’s a racist for simply being the bull in a china shop he’s always been? Yeah, sorry, not playing that game.

Brace Yourselves, The Media Have Found a New Trump Scandal to Latch Onto

The shift in the media since Trump took office has been dramatic and jarring.

That’s actually probably an understatement. The veracity with which they go after Trump over every little thing is only matched by the laxness with which they treated Barack Obama’s numerous scandals. Sell arms to drug cartels leading to a CBP agent being murdered? Meh, they won’t even mention it. Get two scoops of ice cream at dinner? Well, that’s front page news. At one point CNN actually did an investigative report on how many Diet Cokes the President drinks.

Well, brace yourselves because we’ve got a new scandal on our hands and this one is a doozy.

Here’s CNN’s report. Yes, they wasted actual bandwidth on their website doing a full write up on this.

Washington (CNN): President Donald Trump chastised his acting chief of staff Mick Mulvaney for coughing during the taping of a TV interview, ordering the aide out of the Oval Office while he was in the middle of an answer.

Trump, during an interview with ABC News’ George Stephanopoulos that aired Sunday, was in the middle of telling the journalist about releasing a financial statement when Mulvaney sounded off a cough that can be heard during the President’s remark.

“Let’s do that over. He’s coughing in the middle of my answer,” Trump said, pointing toward Mulvaney.

“Yeah. OK,” Stephanopoulos said.

Scintillating. I got chills reading that hard hitting journalism. You can find similar write ups at places like USA Today and The Washington Post. It really made the rounds.

The point of even putting this story out there is to paint Trump as an abusive, mean figure who treats his subordinates badly. Maybe he does? But this is a pretty ridiculous example to latch onto. The President got on unlikely assist on this point from liberal journalist (but usually fair) Yashar Ali.

Ali actually took heat in his mentions for that take. That’s 2019 for you.

Would I have asked Mulvaney to leave? Probably not, but that’s not my personality. Trump is a notorious germophobe, so it’s not surprising he’d have a bit of a complex over people coughing. In this case though, a taped interview was going on. It’s kind of a normal thing to ask people coughing to leave the room during filming of just about anything.

The coughing isn’t really the story here though. The most relevant part of all this, which is admittedly soaked in irrelevancy, is the media’s absurdity in even covering this as even newsworthy. It tracks in a long line of ridiculous, pointless stories that have been pushed over the years. There are no standards or rules anymore. If it can be used to paint Donald Trump in a negative light, it’s fit to print.

I’m not sure Trump can survive this latest scandal. We’ll keep you updated.

Last week, we were given the news that Ilhan Omar had committed campaign finance violations, something investigative voices on the right had been saying for a while.

It took an announcement by the Minnesota campaign finance officials to finally get a few mainstream outlets to notice. Then things got worse, as it became clear that part of the entire scheme involved her filing joint tax returns with someone she wasn’t married to, all while simultaneously being married to another man.

Redstate Senior Managing Editor streiff covered that story.

When the Minnesota Campaign Finance and Public Disclosure Board released its report requiring the pro-terrorist, anti-American, anti-Semitic bigot who happens to represent Minnesota’s Fifth Congressional to pay nearly $3,500 in fines and restitution for diverting campaign contributions to her own personal use, they buried the lede. Apparently, she not only scammed her contributors to enrich herself, she also engaged is several years of calculated income tax fraud.

So for at least two years, Omar committed tax fraud. As streiff points out though, the investigators were only interested in the years she received donations. There’s a very good chance the fraud goes back even further.

If this were a Republican, it’d be huge news. As it stands, I’m not even sure CNN has reported on it and the only mention from a major paper I’ve seen is The Washington Post’s Aaron Blake retweeting a local report covering the scam.

The Associate Press did finally put out a story on the ordeal, but decided to use it’s position to essentially shill for Omar. Instead of an investigative piece on her wrongdoing as you’d see with any other non-liberal politician, they found an “expert” to do a Q&A with who is sure to paint a picture of Omar being in the clear.

Despite the mainstream press’ desire to bury this story, Omar’s hometown paper has a bit of a harsher (but not too harsh) take. While they are extremely pro-Democratic party, the Star Tribune’s editorial board took the Congresswoman to task for her continual drama.

It’s against the law in Minnesota to file jointly unless one filer is legally married to the other. Last year Omar told the Star Tribune that she had married her partner “in her faith,” and had earlier divorced her first husband “in her faith.” That’s fine for religious purposes. But for tax purposes, only civil marriages qualify. It’s not known whether she benefited materially by filing jointly. That is something that voters, who are obliged to follow tax laws no matter how painful, are entitled to know.

Omar’s excuse has been to say she was divorced and remarried in her “faith.” The IRS doesn’t care about that though, or they wouldn’t if Omar weren’t part of the privileged class. She broke the law, period.

Omar’s political rise has been marred by a series of unforced errors, including intemperate remarks and tweets earlier this year that were widely perceived as anti-Semitic. Every month seems to bring a fresh problem.

You can sense that patience is running out. I don’t know if this means Omar will face serious challengers in 2020, but the possibility is strong.

In the end, Omar will likely skate because that’s what all liberal politicians tend to do. There’s no logical reason why she shouldn’t be staring down an indictment right now.

There is some sweet, sweet irony in all this though. After crying about Trump’s tax returns, Omar (and Democrats) are now left scrambling to excuse the fact that she won’t release her tax information to show exactly what was going on. If you go on Twitter, this is a good characterization of the liberal response.

Liberals a week ago: “Donald Trump is a tax cheat and should be in prison despite me having no evidence of that!”

Liberals today: “Nobody cares about tax fraud, rube!”

Republicans should keep pressing on this issue. Omar shouldn’t be anywhere near Congress and seeing her ousted in 2020 would be a good thing. Don’t let the media dictate the terms here. Go hard and don’t worry about getting called a bigot. They are going to do that anyway.
