Journo Who Pressed Charges Against April Ryan’s Bodyguard Hints He’s Exploring Legal Options Against Her, Too

FILE – In this Dec. 19, 2014 file photo, April Ryan, a veteran WH correspondent for American Urban Radio Networks, appears at a news conference in the Brady Press Briefing Room of the WH in Washington. Ryan has been hired as a political contributor for CNN. Her CNN hiring was announced on 4/3/17. (AP Photo/J. Scott Applewhite, File)

Last week, Red State‘s Bonchie wrote about a disturbing incident from August 3rd involving New Brunswick Today journalist Charlie Kratovil, CNN political contributor April Ryan, and Ryan’s bodyguard Joel Morris. Kratovil alleges that Morris assaulted him. Not long after the incident, Kratovil pressed charges against Morris .

NJ.com reports on the criminal complaint that was filed against Morris today:

A criminal complaint dated August 19 charges 30-year-old Joel Morris of Country Club Hills, Illinois, with harassment, assault and theft. It alleges Morris took Kratovil’s arm and shoved it behind his back, injuring his forearm and shoulder. The harassment and theft charges stem from Morris taking the camera, according to the complaint.

Kratovil said a public relations firm had alerted him to Ryan’s appearance and invited him to attend the NJ Parent Summit. He said he received permission and arrived at the hotel, checked in and recorded other speakers for two hours without issue.

But shortly before Ryan took the stage, a man began to question his camera and his presence, he said.

To recap what was alleged: In a lengthy thread posted to Twitter on August 5th, Kratovil alleged Morris stole but later returned his camera equipment at an August 3rd event in New Jersey, and that Morris also physically assaulted him. The event was the 4th annual New Jersey Parent Summit. Ryan was scheduled to be the keynote speaker.

Kratovil was able to record some of the incident, which you can watch below. Note that Morris first confers with Ryan to get the okay to act before proceeding to go after Kratovil:

Kratovil stated in tweets about the incident that while he was being forced out of the room, Ryan – who has been an extremely vocal critic of President Trump’s highly adversarial relationship with the media – explained why he was being kicked out:

Here’s another video that shows Morris aggressively intimidating the journalist and physically shoving him out of the hotel lobby as others looked on. One woman in a sequined dress (perhaps the event organizer?) is egging on Morris to force Kratovil to leave and shouts “how dare you?” at Kratovil. She has to be held back during the incident.

The hotel staff appear to be in shock:

The videos appear to back up Kratovil’s claims.

Washington Post media reporter Paul Farhi posted an image of the New Jersey criminal summons, along with a statement from Kratovil who hints he is exploring legal options against Ryan, too:

Kratovil posted a video clip about the summons, and said he is still waiting for comment from Ryan:

As far as I know, no one at CNN has commented on this matter to date, including media firefighter Brian Stelter. We all know Stelter would be first in line to demand immediate suspensions and firings if this had been a Fox News journalist treating a member of the media as Kratovil was.

I guess to Ryan and Stelter it’s okay to treat others in the mainstream media contemptuously as long as you’re a Democrat – or a CNN employee (or both).

A Group of Chicago Teachers Union Members Travels to Venezuela & Reports The Shocking Findings: It’s Fantastic!

Westlake Legal Group venezuela-991906_1280-620x349 A Group of Chicago Teachers Union Members Travels to Venezuela & Reports The Shocking Findings: It’s Fantastic! wttw Venezuela unions Uncategorized socialism sarah chambers prostitution jesse sharkey Illinois Front Page Stories Featured Story Education democrats chicago tonight Chicago Teachers Union Chicago Allow Media Exception Academia

 

 

The world of politics is a constant reminder that not everyone draws the same conclusions.

So is — incidentally — green bean casserole.

That stuff is nasty.

Anyway, here’s another case in point:

Three Illinois educators and a union organizer recently crowdfunded a trip to that most desirable of vacation destinations, Venezuela.

In response to what they saw, the Chicago Teachers Union crew praised the beleaguered nation on social media.

As reported by the Chicago Tribune Monday, during their South American romp, they met government officials and teachers and visited a commune. They even got local media coverage.

Stuff they admired: the country’s literacy rates, those fabulous communes…and its socialist system.

Not everyone’s psyched about their portrayal.

From the Tribune:

[C]ritics say the group glossed over Venezuela’s ongoing political and economic crises and were excessively complimentary of President Nicolás Maduro, whose administration has been accused in recent United Nations reports of “grave” human rights violations and violence against dissenters.

Count teacher and union member Karen Moody among the nay-sayers. Here’s what she had to offer:

“I am appalled a delegation representing themselves as CTU went to Venezuela, not to support striking teachers, not to object to human rights violations, but to go on what appears to be a state-chaperoned propaganda tour.”

However, union President Jesse Sharkey assured WTTW’s Chicago Tonight that the trip wasn’t sanctioned in any way:

“Members go all kinds of places in the summer. This was neither an official trip nor something that was funded by the union. This is a group of people who are members of the CTU who decided to go to Venezuela.”

That’s all well and good, but how does he explain the union’s Twitter account retweeting the group’s updates? One blog entry was titled “Introduction to CTU Delegation to Venezuela.”

Here’s a message passed along by the union’s page, courtesy of CTU traveler Sarah Chambers — who’s also a member of the board:

“While staying in #Venezuela, we didn’t see a single homeless person. USA is the richest country in the world; yet, there are homeless people everywhere. Over 17k CPS students are homeless… This is why @CTULocal1 is fighting for fair housing #CTUAgainstVezIntervention.”

They’re fighting!

How about a fight against children prostituting themselves, and straight men working as gay hookers? That’s also happened in Venezuela, thanks to the swell system — see here.

In response to an online critic, Sarah defended her favorable review of the big V by touting her analytical mind:

“Have you visited Venezuela & spoke to 100s there? As a teacher, I teach my students to be critical thinkers, to get primary sources, listen to ppl’s stories & do research before just believing any news. I suggest you do the same.”

One GoFundMe donor saluted the CTU strike at “imperialism”:

“Proud of the CTU for their brave and visionary anti-imperialist resolution and enactment of ‘teacher-to-teacher’ solidarity between Chicago and Venezuelan teachers!”

Speaking to Fight Back! News, Sarah also bragged on Venezuelan President Nicolás Maduro for his stellar job:

“Through major economic hardships, Venezuelan President Nicolás Maduro never closed a single public school or a single health clinic. This stands in stark contrast to our experience in Chicago, where Mayor Rahm Emanuel closed 50 public schools and several mental health clinics in a single year.”

As pointed out by The Daily Wire, the blog reporting all the glories of a nation that’s struggled to find the radical modernity of toilet paper was named the Radical Educator Collective.

It’s radical alright.

Pompeo The Yes-Man? Not So Fast

Westlake Legal Group pompeo-fdd-620x352 Pompeo The Yes-Man? Not So Fast Uncategorized Trump administration republicans Politics military Mike Pompeo Liberal Elitism journalism International Affairs Government Front Page Stories Front Page Foreign Policy Featured Story elections donald trump democrats Conservatives Allow Media Exception  Pompeo The Yes-Man? Not So Fast

Susan B. Glasser in today’s New Yorker (aggregated over on Real Clear Politics) published a hit piece on Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and an allegedly conservative magazine, The American Conservative, decided it needed to pile on. In a long and tortured article entitled “Mike Pompeo, The Secretary Of Trump,” Ms. Glasser while appearing to be balanced and give him credit where due, essentially likens Secretary Pompeo to a boot licking sycophant. Her greatest angst seems to be with the fact that Secretary Pompeo understands the chain-of-command. He knows he is but an advisor and it’s The President who gets to decide things. From Ms. Glasser’s article:

The word “mission” was the tell. Pompeo in public often refers to the “mission set” he’s been assigned by Trump, presenting himself as a mere executor of the President’s commands. “He’s very focussed on whatever the mission is. He’s a West Point guy: Trump wants a deal, so I’ll get a deal,” another of the former officials said. The official noted that Pompeo uses the language of “an Army captain, a guy who went to West Point and got out before he became a general.”

To the “former official,” and Ms. Glasser—Sorry. That IS the language of Commissioned Officers, from Second Lieutenant, all the way up to the Four Star General (or Admiral) asigned as Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. You state your case and the “Old Man” decides. Unless it’s an illegal order, you salute, say “Yes Sir,” and execute. And one other thing you don’t do—You don’t “leak” your disappointment at decisions not decided your way.

Ms. Glasser goes on to further demonstrate that she’s spent too much time talking about other folks and not enough time actually being in the arena, emphasis mine.

This behavior is the reason that Pompeo has succeeded in becoming the lone survivor of Trump’s original national-security team. At the start of his Administration, the President had bragged about “my generals.” But, now that he has pushed out the actual generals who served as his chief of staff, his national-security adviser, and his Defense Secretary, it seems clear that Trump was uncomfortable with such leaders, and rejected their habits of command and independent thinking. He wanted a Mike Pompeo, not a Jim Mattis, a captain trained to follow orders, not a general used to giving them.

Again with the non-existent Captain-General dichotomy. Captains give plenty of orders. And for the edification of Ms. Glasser, Mr. Larison, below and others like them, most fights, especially in this particular conflict we are still embroiled in, are led by Sergeants, Lieutenants and Captains. They make the day-to-day, life or death decisions…and far more of them than Flag Officers do.

Daniel Larison over at the The American Conservative, piles on in his article, “Pompeo the Yes-Man.”

It is typical of the shoddiness of Trump’s hiring practices that he picked an unqualified Congressman to run the CIA without even knowing who he was, but the somewhat surprising thing about this episode is that Trump didn’t end up holding Pompeo’s previous criticism against him. Pompeo evidently proved to Trump that he could be just as much of a suck-up as a he was a critic, and that is what he has done. Unfortunately for the country, that has meant having a wholly unqualified man in charge of representing the U.S. to the world because he happens to know how to stroke the president’s ego.

Unqualified? Please! Glasser and Larison are clearly demonstrating the ivory tower mentality so resented by the military and other professions that actually have personal responsibility attached to them. If Ms. Glasser or Mr. Larison had actually served in the military or some other profession requiring the leadership of others, they would know that the only difference between a Captain and a General in command, is the scope of responsibility. Captain level commanders take and give orders, lots of them. Secretary Pompeo served in an Armored Calvary Unit. As a Troop/Company Commander, he would have commanded 100-200 Soldiers (depending on attachments) and been personally responsible for over 100 million dollars worth of equipment while making life & death decisions every day.

I checked the work and education pedigrees of both Ms. Glasser and Mr. Larison. I find it odd that two folks with work experience such as theirs, bereft in actual leadership of others in life or death situations, believe they actually have the chops to denigrate a man with Secretary Pompeo’s real world experience in such matters. I understand the need in our Republic for a robust press. However, J-School grads might wish to consider the below, attributed to Teddy Roosevelt as they opine on issues not really in their wheelhouse.

It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.”

In short, Mike Pompeo is more qualified to be CIA Chief or Secretary of State than most of the members of Congress. He is far more qualified than Barrack Obama was for the Presidency, who when elected had never, ever at any time prior, held a “buck stops here” job—not one. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo is certainly more qualified than these two critics who claim he isn’t.

Maggie Haberman From The NYT Tweets About Luggage Aboard Air Force One.

Ahhh the good ole New York Times. All the news that is fit to print in luggage via a tweet.

We all know that Donald Trump and the New York Times kinda have a love/hate/reallyhate relationship that is just fun to watch. In fact, Trump tweeted this about the NYT just yesterday…

The New York Times will be out of business soon after I leave office, hopefully in 6 years. They have Zero credibility and are losing a fortune, even now, especially after their massive unfunded liability. I’m fairly certain they’ll endorse me just to keep it all going!

That last line about endorsing him to keep the paper going is what we call some high quality trolling via twitter. Now we can’t be sure if this was the cause of this next tweet but let’s just assume it was.

One of the Times reporters felt the need to report on…..luggage.

Louis Vitton luggage being removed from the baggage hold of AF1.

Now of course in defense of Maggie we don’t know if that is President Trump and his families bags. She doesn’t say either. However, the implication of it all is that a member of America’s military standing under the most protected plane in the world next to some fancy luggage HAS TO BE the guy who takes shots at her employer via twitter.

Honestly, this is not a bad troll job either by the Lois Lane wannabe. I’m not even going to poke fun at her for getting the name of the luggage wrong.  I looked all over for Louis Vitton luggage and I could not find one damn instance of it being made. This is just one of those situations that any young reporter tweeting about luggage would get mixed up when trying to break a story.

Tough business to be in yo.

So here is to you Maggie, for trying to be cute about tweeting about luggage in the hopes the unwashed masses would rise up against POTUS 45 and start a revolution that might gain you some of those SWEET Louis Vitton for when you need to flee the country.

Try next time about tweeting about President Trump’s sox.

President Trump, Sen. Cruz Slam Dems for Mulling Punishment for Jewish Ambassadors Over Omar/Tlaib Decision

On Saturday, I wrote about reports that House Democratic leaders were considering punishment options for the two Jewish ambassadors at the center of the controversy over Israel’s decision last Thursday to bar Democratic Reps. Rashida Tlaib (MI) and Ilhan Omar (MN) from their country on security grounds.

Israeli ambassador to the U.S. Ron Dermer and U.S ambassador to Israel David Friedman were said to be in line for “statements of no confidence” and Inspector General investigations, according to McClatchy:

About a dozen lawmakers, including senior Jewish members, began discussions on Friday morning over ways to communicate a “deep lack of confidence and trust” in Israel’s ambassador to Washington, Ron Dermer, and the U.S. ambassador to Israel, David Friedman, according to two sources familiar with the discussions.

The group is weighing issuing a statement of no confidence in Dermer and opening an inspector general investigation into Friedman’s conduct, the sources said.

[…]

“We are reviewing all of our options,” a senior congressional source told McClatchy. “With Dermer, the issue is that there already was a severe lack of trust. But now there is a severe lack of confidence. It is completely unclear that he represents his government given he has made promises that he has not kept and wasn’t clear if he ever had any chance of keeping.”

The Democratic lawmakers include Foreign Affairs Committee Chairman Eliot Engel of New York and Appropriations Committee Chairwoman Nita Lowey of New York.

President Trump weighed in on the report on Sunday, asserting that the news equated to Democrats having “such disdain for Israel”:

The White House issued a more formal statement today on the reports, noting Democrats “cannot change the laws Israel has passed to protect itself”:

“Congresswomen Rashida Tlaib and Ilhan Omar have a well-documented history of anti-Semitic comments, anti-Semitic social media posts and anti-Semitic relationships,” said White House spokesman Hogan Gidley. “Israel has the right to prevent people who want to destroy it from entering the country – and Democrats’ pointless congressional inquiries here in America cannot change the laws Israel has passed to protect itself.”

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) also spoke out against the plan over the weekend, calling it a “SERIOUS mistake”:

Cruz has been one of the more outspoken voices in the Senate speaking out against anti-Semitism. In June, he and Democratic Senator Tim Kaine (D-VA) were successful in getting the Senate to unanimously pass a resolution expressly condemning anti-Semitism.

Elizabeth Warren Does Mea Culpa At Native American Forum and Promptly Scrubs Her Website Of DNA Evidence

FILE – In this May 18, 2019, file photo, Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., speaks at a house party campaign stop in Rochester, N.H. Rising disagreement among congressional Democrats over whether to pursue impeachment of President Donald Trump has had little effect on the party’s presidential candidates, who mostly are avoiding calls to start such an inquiry. (AP Photo/Robert F. Bukaty, File)

It seems like the growing consensus on the left is that Elizabeth Warren is the most likely Democrat nominee for president in 2020. While here far left economics and penchant for promising free stuff that someone else bought appeals to the Democrat base, she comes with a lot of weaknesses. Not the least of which is the fact that for some 40 years she misrepresented herself as someone of American Indian heritage…those high cheekbones are a tell, donchaknow…and used that alleged ethnicity for what, to the casual observer, looks like personal advancement.

Lest you think this misrepresentation was innocent and accidental, it wasn’t. On her Texas Bar application, Warren, in her own handwriting, declares herself to be American Indian.

From 1985 through 1996, the American Association of Law Schools directory, this is the comprehensive directory of law school professors, listed Warren as American Indian. She would have had to vet her personal entry at some point.

In 1996, the Harvard Crimson quotes the Harvard Law spokesman touting Warren as an American Indian faculty member.

After some months of being ridiculed as “Pocahontas” by President Trump (I really wish Trump had called her “Fauxcahontas” just to evade the whole “ethnic slur” bullsh**), she finally broke down and took a DNA test. She claimed vindication.

The results were comical. Somewhere between 6 and 10 generations ago she had one American Indian forebear probably indicating the person lived no later then the mid-18th century.

What should have been the final straw came when the Cherokees, themselves, called bullsh** on Warren’s claims.

But Warren doubled down by placing the documents and video on her campaign website convinced, rightfully, that her rather stupid supporters would go along with whatever she said.

Now the campaign has quietly scrubbed (with a brush??) the website of all mention of the DNA test.

CNN reported Sunday that the campaign planned to scrub sections of Warren’s website dealing with her heritage as part of a reboot of her campaign. The change appears to have been made by Monday, though the content remains viewable on the Internet Wayback Machine.

According to CNN, Warren has met with Native American leaders, and has apologize in private for over-stating her ancestry claims.

As part of her campaign reset, Warren addressed the scandal during a speech Monday at a Native American forum in Sioux City.

“I am sorry for harm I have caused. I have listened and I have learned a lot, and I am grateful for the many conversations that we’ve had together,” she said.

Given the entire parade of numbskullery that led to Warren being exposed as a fraud did she really think that a public mea culpa and a ritualistic banishment of her claims from her website going to prevent President Trump and his surrogates and the rest of us from making her grifting off a lie an issue? Not hardly. The fact that she erased the information simply makes it seem much more like a deliberate deception instead of an accident.

Ultimately, what the folks at this forum think doesn’t mean a lot. American Indians don’t hold the electoral balance of power in any statewide election. The people who are going to decide if this matters are the average voters who understand exactly why Elizabeth Warren did what she did. I don’t think they’ll be cheering.

Portland Mayor Sends Out Disgustingly Tone-Deaf Tweet After Saturday’s Antifa Attacks

Westlake Legal Group ap-ted-wheeler-620x453 Portland Mayor Sends Out Disgustingly Tone-Deaf Tweet After Saturday’s Antifa Attacks Violence ted wheeler Portland Politics Oregon Front Page Stories Featured Story donald trump democrats crime antifa Allow Media Exception

Mayor Ted Wheeler of Portland, Oregon, is currently presiding over a city where he’s not in control due to the fact that he seems to have ceded all power to the domestic terrorist organization Antifa.

Portland is infested with Antifa members and the infection is only getting worse as time passes without Wheeler taking any measures against them. In fact, he seems to be in complete support of them given the fact that he’s reportedly ordered police to stand down and let Antifa do as they please in the past.

Portland is a city in chaos, yet according to Wheeler, it’s a beautiful city where nothing wrong is happening as evidenced by a tweet he sent out on Sunday, just a day after Antifa gathered en masse and forcefully attacked Trump supporters with deadly objects.

As the Daily Wire first reported, Wheeler sent out a tweet Sunday afternoon with a picture of him

and his wife holding hands as they walked into a market.

“Sundays in Portland,” tweeted Wheeler.

It’s a serene, peaceful picture that paints Portland as the friendly and quaint place popularized by media.

But here’s the real Portland.

Whether Wheeler is trying to lie to America to paint a rosy picture of Portland that defies Trump’s attention to it, or he’s trying to make it seem like Antifa was successful in fending off white supremacists from the city (as a Democrat on CNN suggested) he’s failing at both.

Wheeler comes off more as a false-leader, huckster, and a sociopath more than anything else, and the internet made sure he understood that.

‘Feminist’ Dad Brags He’ll Scream Hate at MAGA Wearers Because They’re Hate-Mongering Racists. Black Conservative Socks it To Him

Westlake Legal Group word-wood-texture-floor-number-wall-1194336-pxhere.com_-620x414 ‘Feminist’ Dad Brags He’ll Scream Hate at MAGA Wearers Because They’re Hate-Mongering Racists. Black Conservative Socks it To Him woke Uncategorized tolerance racism Race Politics LGBT Front Page Stories Feminism donald trump democrats civility bigotry Allow Media Exception

 

 

[WARNING: LANGUAGE]

Last week, a #superwoke dad promised to be uncivil and intolerant.

Why? Because anyone who supports Trump is a racist, a misogynist, a bigot, and/or a hate-monger.

Therefore, he’ll tell them all “F*** you”:

Let’s review:

MAGA voters are hate-monger; but he’s the one who’ll yell “F*** you.”

Trumpers are bigots; therefore, he won’t put up with their views.

Definition of “bigotry”: “Intolerance of an opposing view.”

This is where we are.

The bigotry-endorsing, hate-mongering anti-bigot/anti-hate-monger spends his time these days being a “Dad, #Feminist, (and) #GunSense Reform Advocate,” as well as an “#LGBTQ Supporter” as per his Twitter profile.

Not included: “Fan of the dictionary.”

Some people didn’t appreciate Stirling’s sentiment — such as this sh**-dealing, misogynistic, homophobic, racist bigot:

It should go without saying, of course, that they could in fact be racist, only because anyone could be racist. Including — dare I say — Democrats.

But how’s Stirling gonna retort?

Twitter user Laura Schleif swooped in to Democratsplain:

This was a good one:

Interesting commentary followed both of Anthony’s posts:

I have no idea what this is or means, but I know I love it:

Stirling’s social media statement brings to mind the wealth of  absurdity whirling about in contemporary politics. People appear to be saying things because they think they sound good, despite a total lack of anything related to reality or reason.

For more, please read:

Ilhan Omar Calls The Hijab A Symbol Of Rebellion. A Woman Rebels Against It, Gets 38 Years In Prison” and “The 10 Stages Of Genocide: A Social Media Marvel Provides A Window Into America’s Growing Mental Disorder.”

But in the meantime, you may wanna stay away from Stirling — that anti-hate non-bigot will scream at you because you don’t agree with him.

Fourth-ranking House Democrat: Okay, it’s time to impeach Trump

Westlake Legal Group dt-2 Fourth-ranking House Democrat: Okay, it’s time to impeach Trump Trump The Blog Russia obstruction lujan impeachment impeach House democrats

Well, it’s time to open an impeachment inquiry at least, he says, which I suppose is different. House Democrats might consider that a way to appease the anti-Trumpers in their base without going nuclear with full-blown impeachment. They can begin an impeachment investigation, enjoying the extra constitutional power that might provide them in obtaining documents like Trump’s tax returns, then take their sweet time and never quite reach a conclusion about what to do before the election.

Is the left really that cheap of a cheap date, though? If this is just a stalling tactic to keep the heat from progressives off of the House leadership, with no good-faith intent to actually pursue impeachment, lefties will call them out on it. Especially if anything Russia-related happens next year during the campaign. “WHAT ARE WE DOING ON IMPEACHMENT?” progressives will cry. What will Pelosi and Ben Ray Lujan say then?

House Dems can’t “open an impeachment inquiry” and then not impeach. Having had its heart broken once by Mueller, the left won’t tolerate having it broken again by its own reps.

“The Trump presidency is creating grave national security concerns. Our country’s intelligence agencies have confirmed that the Russian government attacked America during the 2016 elections. Numerous experts have warned that these attacks are ongoing to this day. And when faced with this evidence from his own government, President Trump has failed to act. Not only has he ignored the warnings that our Democracy is being targeted, but he has also actively encouraged Russian interference.

“When Special Counsel Mueller released his report, I read it in full. I was alarmed by the Trump campaign and the Trump White House’s brazen disregard for the rule of law. The report detailed sustained and frequent attempts by the Trump campaign to establish ties to the Russian government and an eagerness to benefit from hacked information stolen from our fellow Americans. The Special Counsel also detailed ten different attempts by President Trump to obstruct justice during the investigation. This would be unacceptable behavior from any president.

“President Trump’s lack of action is jeopardizing our elections, national security, and Democracy.

“What is evident is that President Trump is abdicating his responsibility to defend our nation from Russian attacks and is putting his own personal and political interests ahead of the American people.”

Normally someone as high-ranking as Lujan joining Team Impeachment would be big news, not only because of what it might signal about Pelosi’s own thinking but because of the unusual sway he holds over the Democrats’ freshman class. He’s not just the assistant Speaker and a Pelosi ally, he was the head of the DCCC last year when Dems mopped the floor with Republicans in House races. A centrist freshman who’s worried about how impeachment might hurt them back home next fall might take heart from Lujan coming out in favor, knowing that he’s better attuned than most in the House to what sorts of Democratic gambits can and can’t play nationally.

But I don’t know if there’s any grand lesson for them to take from his impeachment support here. That’s because Lujan is leaving the House and running for Senate next year in his home state of New Mexico to replace the retiring Tom Udall. He’s facing a contested primary too, although he’s the odds-on favorite given his support among the party’s leadership and the fact that his family is a political dynasty in the state. (His cousin is the current governor.) Lujan’s not hoping to trigger a pro-impeachment cascade in the House or to twist Pelosi’s arm, in other words, he’s covering his left flank ahead of a statewide run against several other Democrats next spring. If he were to waver on the core lefty proposition of Orange Man Bad, that might be enough to galvanize progressives in New Mexico to trying to defeat him in the primary. So he’s checking the box he needs to check.

It tells you a lot about how confident he is of victory too that he’d ditch the House given what a plum position he’s in there. At just 45 years old, he’s decades younger than the people ahead of him in the Dem leadership. And there’s no reason to believe Democrats will lose their House majority soon, meaning that Lujan stood a very real chance of becoming the first Latino Speaker if he had stayed put — maybe in just a few years. He’s giving all of that up because he suspects he’ll have a cakewalk for the Senate seat, which is likely true, and once he’s a senator he’ll become a top-flight Democratic candidate for president in 2024 or 2028. So in all likelihood, his lurch towards impeachment was done with Pelosi’s blessing, a special dispensation aimed at helping him win his next election and advance through the party.

Besides, haven’t Democrats … already opened an impeachment inquiry? They’re running a sort of “Schrodinger’s inquiry” right now in which Pelosi continues to insist that she’s not for impeachment and the party should look forward while Jerry Nadler operates as though there’s already an active impeachment probe and he’s proceeding accordingly. From late July:

House Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler’s announcement on Friday that the House is formally seeking special counsel Robert Mueller’s grand jury information complicates the far more cautious message on impeachment coming from Pelosi and her top deputies.

Nadler said the action “in effect” is part of an impeachment inquiry — though one has not been formally launched — and in petitioning a federal court for the grand jury evidence, House Democrats put in writing for the first time that they are considering whether impeachment is warranted…

Friday’s court filing is more explicit: The “House must have access to all the relevant facts and consider whether to exercise its full Article I powers, including a constitutional power of the utmost gravity — approval of articles of impeachment.”

There’s a certain Trumpish attitude to the Democratic approach here in that it seems aimed at letting everyone hear what they want to hear. If you think the House should stay away from impeachment, great, Pelosi is with you. If you think the House should impeach with all due haste, great, Nadler’s already a step ahead of you. If you think the House should be cautious but at least open an impeachment inquiry, great, Ben Ray Lujan couldn’t agree more. They’re just going to muddle through here, I think, conducting a low-key investigation that can turn quickly into a formal impeachment push if and when Nadler and Adam Schiff turn up something on Trump that’s explosive.

Exit question: Given the wrenching, still ongoing political crisis that resulted from Russia’s interference in 2016, every garbage rogue regime under the sun will be trying to meddle somehow in 2020, right? Hack into a few choice databases, let your presence be known somehow, and watch righties and lefties go for each other’s throats with allegations that their candidate is illegitimate because he/she benefited from illicit foreign help.

Mainstream Media Fully Endorse NY Times’ Decree To Pivot En Masse From Russian Collusion To Racism

Westlake Legal Group AP_080722043710-620x306 Mainstream Media Fully Endorse NY Times’ Decree To Pivot En Masse From Russian Collusion To Racism progressives President Trump Politics New York Times' Dean Baquet Mainstream Media Juan Williams journalism Front Page Stories Featured Story donald trump democrats byron york Allow Media Exception 2020 1619 project

 

And they’re off…

The mainstream media sure know a good idea when they hear one. And they heard an extraordinary one via a secretly recorded staff address from The New York Times’ executive editor Dean Baquet. He told his team that, although their two-year long focus on President Trump’s collusion with the Russians had been an incredible success, it was time for writers, as a group, to shift their attention.

Baquet explained to the newsroom staff:

We built our newsroom to cover one story, and we did it truly well. Now we have to regroup and shift resources and emphasis to take on a different story.

That different story is race — and Trump. We’ve got to change. I mean, the vision for coverage for the next two years is what I talked about earlier: How do we cover a guy who makes these kinds of remarks? How do we cover the world’s reaction to him? How do we do that while continuing to cover his policies? How do we cover America, that’s become so divided by Donald Trump?

The newspaper actually hopes to achieve two goals. First, they are requesting that their writers drill down on the President’s racism. Second, they are attempting to “reframe” U.S. history. You may think America was founded in 1776, but the Times believes that it all really began in 1619 when the first slaves arrived in America.

They devoted an entire issue of the New York Times Magazine toward explaining what they refer to as the “1619 Project.’ Lest you think I’m exaggerating, the paper states:

The goal of the 1619 Project is to reframe American history. It aims to reframe the country’s history, understanding 1619 as our true founding, and placing the consequences of slavery and the contributions of black Americans at the very center of the story we tell ourselves about who we are.

Our democracy’s founding ideals were false when they were written. Black Americans have fought to make them true.

The editors plan to “teach” this new version of history to their readers and introduce it into the schools.

The Washington Examiner’s Byron York read the entire paper and wrote that the basic thrust of the 1619 project is that everything in American history is explained by slavery and race. He explains:

The essays go on to cover the economy (“If you want to understand the brutality of American capitalism, you have to start on the plantation.”), the food we eat (“The sugar that saturates the American diet has a barbaric history as the ‘white gold’ that fueled slavery.”), the nation’s physical health (“Why doesn’t the United States have universal healthcare? The answer begins with policies enacted after the Civil War.”), politics (“America holds onto an undemocratic assumption from its founding: that some people deserve more power than others.”), daily life (“What does a traffic jam in Atlanta have to do with segregation? Quite a lot.”), and much more.

Anyway, you get the idea. A recording of Baquet’s remarks was leaked to Slate and now the entire mainstream media have heard the message.

And they like it – a lot.

It’s been obvious that once the Mueller report was released, we began to see a shift away from “Trump colluded with the Russians” narrative and an increase in the “Trump is a racist and a white supremacist and you are too if you voted for him” narrative. Now, the pivot toward race and racism will be impossible to miss.

Trump was quick to jump on this story. He responded by tweet:

Fox News’ token liberal, Juan Williams, has published an editorial in The Hill which shows he has already fallen into line. Juan has found the answer. Democrats need to hit Trump where it hurts – in the wallet. And, just as the New York Times has requested, he wastes no time in bringing it back to race.

Williams praises Joaquin Castro’s (D-TX) move to publish the names of Trump’s donors as well as his defense. Castro tweeted, “Donald Trump has put a target on the back of millions. And you’re too cowardly or agreeable to say anything about it. How about I stop mentioning Trump’s public campaign donors and he stops using their money for ads that fuel hate?”

Williams was especially excited about a new ad Castro has run on Fox News which says, “As we saw in El Paso, Americans were killed because you stoked the fire of racists. Innocent people were shot down because they look different from you; because they look like me.” Williams wrote, “Paying for a television ad to rebuke Trump as a racist has the potential to penetrate the far-right bubble.” It will never happen.

I think Williams is naive and, as they used to say, has been drinking the kool-aid.

He tells his readers with great enthusiasm that, “Many Democratic presidential candidates are already on record calling the president a racist.” He implies that since everyone in this group says it, it is therefore true. Their opinions on most issues differ only by degrees and they all agree on a lot of stupid and unsustainable things such as medicare for all, open borders and free healthcare for illegal immigrants. The entire field of 2020 hopefuls are committing group suicide by moving so sharply to the left.

Next, he applauds Rep. Al Green’s (D-TX) “new, money-based rationale for House Democrats to begin impeaching Trump — to put a spotlight on Trump’s big donors.”

Green told MSNBC that “impeachment would result in Trump becoming persona non grata to a good many of these wealthy people.” He said that these donors see Trump as a “beneficial bigot” and added:

Those donors are giving money in exchange for right-wing judges on the courts and tax cuts for the rich. So he has benefitted them to the extent that they will tolerate his bigotry. When you tolerate bigotry, you perpetuate bigotry.

Let’s remember that Green has introduced articles of impeachment against Trump three times and has failed.

Finally, Williams argues “Polling indicates that this new willingness to confront Trump’s use of racial division has the potential to pay dividends.” It also has the ability to backfire spectacularly. Especially now that the cat is out of the bag. The New York Times grandiose plan has been exposed for all the world to see.

We don’t have to guess what their agenda is. We know it. We even have it in writing.

‘Painting Trump as a racist while transforming the way Americans view history’ is a rather ambitious goal. The New York Times wants to alter our thoughts, shape our opinions and to gain control over us. They’ve issued a call to action accompanied by specific instructions. This is no longer journalism.

On the contrary, it sounds a lot like a strategy for a coup. They must never succeed.
