Accusation Culture – The Press and Democrats No Longer Need Facts and Proof to Justify Character Destruction

Westlake Legal Group Bernstein-Stelter Accusation Culture – The Press and Democrats No Longer Need Facts and Proof to Justify Character Destruction Front Page Stories Front Page Featured Story Featured Post donald trump democrats Allow Media Exception

The mere presence of accusations is now enough to condemn someone – a convenience for those making the accusations.

Washington is all abuzz with the latest tire-fire accusations against President Trump, leading to just the latest calls for impeachment. The Democrats in the House seems to be fully confident that the Ukrainian phone call(s) will become THE downfall of the President they have all dreamed since…well, since before Trump was even inaugurated.

What is second-most revealing about this push to impeach (behind the sheer desperation of it all) is how little attention is being paid to having proof of any wrong-doing first. This has become the hallmark of the press and the Democrats during the Trump era; accusations are enough to claim moral outrage. What we are seeing with regularity is that the accusatory storyline is all that is needed, and even when disproven, or at least unproven, those accusations remain on an individual’s stat sheet.

This was the method used, and still employed, against Brett Kavanaugh. When the New York Times attempted to “prove” an accuser came forward with a “credible accusation” that appeared in its new book on the confirmation debacle it led to all manner of hysteria in media circles. Many claimed this “new” accusation (it was not) from a new source (not the victim) called into question all the prior accusals (while lending no proof to those charges). Eventually the New York Times itself discredited its own claim in its book — with the revelation that this “new” victim had no memory of the supposed event, which appears in the very same book.

But the job was done. The accusation was added to the list, and it allowed all prior claims of Kavanaugh misbehavior to be churned up anew. That every single one of these charges failed to deliver anything substantive is immaterial to the press. They are still brought up, and they are still broadcast as newsworthy.

The latest involves the possibility of a Donald Trump coercion of the new Ukrainian President. There has been no proof that Trump leveraged aid for that nation in order to get oppo-research on a potential rival in Joe Biden. The charge arrived from an unnamed, unknown whistleblower who alleged what was spoken on a phone call between the leaders. The problem? Well, as CNN has grudgingly reported, the source of all of this bluster has no direct knowledge of what took place on the phone call in question. They were told something, by another source, outside the scope of their job.

The whistleblower didn’t have direct knowledge of the communications, an official briefed on the matter told CNN. Instead, the whistleblower’s concerns came in part from learning information that was not obtained during the course of their work, and those details have played a role in the administration’s determination that the complaint didn’t fit the reporting requirements under the intelligence whistleblower law, the official said.

So, this individual actually only heard a rumor. Which means they are not in fact a whistleblower — they are nothing more than a gossip. Seems an important detail that warranted being mentioned earlier in the piece, rather than buried close to the end of things. But this is enough for politicians to launch a Congressional investigation. The press meanwhile has all but convicted the President. There was a time when journalists would be presented with this type of breaking story and actually investigate the claims. Once the details were discovered the entire story would be laid out for the readership.

This is no longer the case. The suspicion alone is enough these days to deliver the implication of guilt. Consider this — whenever these new stories break have you not heard a variation on these phrases: “In yet another Trump scandal…”; “The latest controversy surrounding the President’s actions…”; “Impeachment talks have risen again, this time…”. Whenever these are used in the press they carry with them the implication of prior guilt. The seriousness of the charges is deemed vastly important, and somehow even when shown to be invalid the accusations remain a topic to be brought up.

This Ukrainian story has so far been shown to be meritless, but look at how the media is behaving. Brian Stelter brought formerly esteem journalist Carl Bernstein on his ironically-titled Reliable Sources program. There was the blatant attempt to have this latest unproven act of wrongdoing cemented as a legitimate scandal, and little surprise at the move by Bernstein to have this elevated to “Watergate levels” of outrage.

Amusingly Stelter himself provided all of the evidence to expose his own lack of anything approaching a journalistic skill set. To start, there was Brian blatantly ignoring his own network detailing how the whistleblower was in fact someone incapable of knowing what they alleged. (I guess Stelter does not analyze CNN???) Then he gave us a transcript of Carl Bernstein’s assessment, seemingly unaware of how it was filled with disqualifying prolix.

This is embarrassingly sad, and bordering on laughable when considering the exalted journalistic level Bernstein is placed upon. He tries making Trump out to be a grievous offender, but behold all of the qualifiers Carl is reduced to employing for his charge to resonate:

“Seems to be happening”
“These perhaps dirty tricks”
“If this is what happened”
“It seems to be”

These are not the terms used when you have a story. These are terms when used would have, in the past, had an editor handing your copy back and saying, “Nope, you don’t have it yet.” But here Bernstein intones the high level of dungeon he claims exists with a completely unproven scandal.

And so it continues — they just continue to maintain and catalog any and all negative accusations against targets, using the collective number as a form of indictment. Instead of building the case they point to a pile of raw material they cannot assemble, claiming it is so. Thinking and ethical people would dismiss the baseless charges. Our contemporary media have shown they are not made of such character.

Man Who Raised $1 Million for a Children’s Hospital Now Having His Life Ruined Over an 8-Year-Old Tweet

Westlake Legal Group Untitled-1-6-620x394 Man Who Raised $1 Million for a Children’s Hospital Now Having His Life Ruined Over an 8-Year-Old Tweet twitter Social Media Media Front Page Stories Featured Story Des Moines Register Culture controversy charity Carson King anheuser-busch Allow Media Exception

No act of grand charity or kindness can apparently absolve you of the sin of saying something online that you shouldn’t have. Case in point, a man named Carson King is now underneath the public’s proverbial guillotine for a tweet he made at 16 despite the fact that he raised over $1 million for a children’s hospital.

According to WHO-TV, King raised over $1 million for the University of Iowa Stead Family Children’s Hospital thanks to a clever sign held up during a College GameDay segment that read: “Busch Light supply needs replenished. Venmo Carson-King-25.”

The sign went viral and, to King’s surprise, the donations began rolling in from all over the country. He quickly decided to turn the cash from beer money to charity money and hand it over to the children’s hospital. Busch also decided that it would match whatever amount King accumulated. Soon, he had over $1 million.

That should have been the end to a happy story, but in today’s society, no good deed goes unpunished by thirsty reporters. For some undiscernable reason, a reporter from The Des Moines Register began searching through his social media history and found a tweet he had sent back in 2011 when he was 16 years old.

Next thing King knew, he was being told by the Des Moines Register staff that they were considering including these tweets in the piece that was to cover his charitable giving. Your guess as to why they felt the need to even consider doing that is as good as mine.

King decided to preempt the piece and release this information on his own terms, giving a press conference and a public letter stating what his tweet revolved around and how he was terribly sorry for it.

The apology read as such:

It was just 10 days ago that I was a guy in the crowd holding a sign looking for beer money on ESPN Game Day.

Since then – so much has happened. Especially when I announced all of the money would be donated to the Stead Family Children’s Hospital in Iowa City.

Thousands of people have donated and today the account is at 1.14 million dollars. Much of this has happened thanks to social media – it has the power to bring people together for a common good.

It also can make your life very public.

And that is why I wanted to share with you that eight years ago – when I was a sophomore in high school, I made some social media posts with my friends that quoted and referenced the show Tosh.0.

One of those posts was brought to my attention by a member of the media today. I had no recollection of it. In re-reading it today – eight years later – I see it was an attempt at humor that was offensive and hurtful.

I am so embarrassed and stunned to reflect on what I thought was funny when I was 16 years old. I want to sincerely apologize.

Thankfully, high school kids grow up and hopefully become responsible and caring adults. I think my feelings are better summed up by a post from just 3 years ago:

“Until we as a people learn that racism and hate are learned behaviors, we won’t get rid of it. Tolerance towards others is the first step.” — July 8, 2016

I am sharing this information tonight because I feel a responsibility to all of the people who have donated money.

I cannot go back and change what I posted when I was a 16-year-old. I can apologize and work to improve every day and make a meaningful difference in people’s lives.

And, I am so very thankful for the generosity of the thousands of people who have donated to our fundraising push for the Stead Family Children’s Hospital.

The Des Moines Register also released a statement from editor Carol Hunter, which noted their deliberation about whether or not they should even talk about it in the story, and eventually decided they would. Seemingly sensing that this would be seen as a gross move, they decided to include a quote from King himself talking about how the Register had been “nothing but kind in all their coverage.”

The coverage was apparently kind enough that King felt it better to release the information on his own before the Register did.

An Anheuser-Busch spokesperson later said that, while they still plan to honor the promise made with King, they’re cutting all ties with him due to his previous tweets.

“Carson King had multiple social media posts that do not align with our values as a brand or as a company and we will have no further association with him. We are honoring our commitment by donating more than $350,000 to the University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics,” said the statement.

So, to recap, a man did something funny that went viral and he used that viral attention to raise money to help sick children. In turn, the media delved into his social media history and found tweets from when he was 16-years-old, a whopping eight years ago. They deliberated on whether they should release the information about these tweets, and for some reason decided that it would be best if they did. King, feeling the need to get out ahead of the media, released the information himself, but causing his name to be besmirched in the process anyway, causing his charitable benefactors to publicly sever ties with him.

This is a disgusting example of how the media goes too far. The Register should feel ashamed of itself for feeling the need to even broach the subject of tweets sent years ago when the subject they were supposed to cover was a child. It wasn’t part of the story, but now the story is the tweets, not the charity.

In the “you can’t make this up” file today, here’s an example of the incredible hypocrisy being shown by Democrats and the media over this Trump-Ukraine flap.

The transcript of the call is out and it’s a giant nothing burger. We are left arguing strained supposition about what Trump might have meant. In other words, just another day in the Trump era.

But now, a letter has been brought to the forefront that shows Democrats pressured Ukraine in 2018 to investigate Trump as part of the Mueller fiasco.

Hang on a second.

Here’s the part of the letter in question (which you can read in full here).

This is exactly the same thing Democrats are wanting to impeach Trump over. These are partisan, Senate Democrats writing Ukraine to implore them to open investigations into Trump and his associates. Right now, Pelosi is backing impeachment over the idea that Trump asked Ukraine to investigate a political opponent. Last I checked, Trump is a political opponent.

To be clear, they aren’t asking for cooperation with the Mueller farce. They want Ukraine to re-open their own domestic investigations into Trump and Paul Manafort.

The hypocrisy here is just too much. We’ve been told all week that it’s treason to solicit an investigation of a foreign actor. Yet, here are Democrats, in writing, doing exactly that, explicitly.

Sure, some hacks will spin and claim “well, they had legitimate reasons to request this.” No more legitimate than Biden being on tape bragging about extorting the firing of a prosecutor looking at his son. If reasonable suspicion is all that matters, there’s plenty to support what Trump asked of the Ukrainian President.

It’s either all bad or none of it is bad. Or perhaps none of it is necessarily good, but it’s also not nearly as big of a deal as it’s being made out to be? Regardless, what we won’t be doing is playing by two different sets of rules. That’s just not how this is going to work.

Dot-Connecting on Some Very Important News Stories

There are a lot of seemingly random events happening lately. Are they truly random, or might there be nefarious purposes behind at least a few of them? Let’s take a look. Here’s a list of some “breaking news” items over the past week or so; are they all they seem to be on the surface, or is the reality being purposely obfuscated?

  • The Left via a NY Times hit piece are going after USSC Brett Kavanaugh yet again.
  • The Israelis were accused of planting spying devices around the White House.
  • The legacy media claimed that the CIA had to pull a spy from Russia because @POTUS was a security risk.
  • A Saudi ARAMCO facility was attacked using Iranian-produced weapons, possibly by Iranian proxies or by Iran itself.
  • The Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) arrested a senior intelligence officer for allegedly stealing sensitive documents. Nearly concurrently, Justin Trudeau was exposed in more ways than one – multiple instances of (to use the Left’s jargon) “cultural appropriation.”
  • Andrew McCabe stated during a CNN interview that he would refuse to take a plea deal under any circumstances if indicted.
  • Big Democrat donor Ed Buck was arrested for distributing methamphetamines resulting in death.
  • An intelligence community whistleblower complaint was publicized by the WaPo that questioned a supposed promise made by @POTUS to a foreign leader.

Let’s examine each one and see it we can connect a few dots. First off, the Kavanaugh smear. This was a perfect example of the Leftist Hive in operation: a media hit-piece echoed everywhere, Democrat Star Wars bar scene candidates and others in Congress and the media demand his impeachment, etc. A false NY Times report was derived from a book, and the guy behind it all was on Bill Clinton’s defense team during impeachment proceedings while Kavanaugh was working for Special Counsel Ken Starr. Those are just coincidences, right? The Democrats want us to believe that!

The accusations in the NYT article were immediately debunked (the “accuser” refused to come forward and be deposed by the FBI). And this article seals the deal.

Then there is this report that one of those bearing false witness during the Kavanaugh hearings last year was coerced to do so by the Democrat cabal led by Sen. Diane Feinstein (D-CA). This whole article is VERY interesting and is highly recommended!

Why did this story break now and not during the Senate hearings? What’s the Democrats’ game plan? This is all about them de-legitimizing the US Supreme Court because there are a number of very important cases that will be decided in the next session, and the Left fear the results from a conservative-leaning court. Their 3+ decades of practicing lawfare through the federal courts is crashing down, as POTUS is appointing conservative federal district and circuit court judges at a rapid clip to replace leftists who have usurped their authority and legislated from the bench for years.

In past years, confirmed USSC judges were left alone after being confirmed, but the Left have upped the ante by going after Kavanaugh again! They’ve got nothing – no witnesses, no evidence – only false accusations and innuendos. This is all about de-legitimizing Kavanaugh and thereby the court itself, which will allow the Left to claim that any USSC decisions that go against their politics are “tainted” and to be ignored. This is pretty much analogous to how Democrat-run California ignores federal immigration laws now.

I’ve got news for Democrats and their media lick-spittle: more false accusations aren’t going to move the needle in the direction you want it to move. In fact, it will do the reverse as more and more reasonable people see it as just another high-tech lynching (ode to Clarence Thomas).

Moving on to purported Israeli spying on the White House et al. Here’s one of the stories that broke that news. Note this phrase in the very first sentence of that article: “according to three former senior U.S. officials with knowledge of the matter.” I mean, really! How many times are we supposed to fall for that gambit (unnamed sources)? If we’ve learned anything in the Age of Trump it’s that, unless the sources are named, the articles in the legacy/left media are purposely anti-Trump and bogus. The list of #FakeNews stories is long! Those “unnamed sources” could easily be former Obama Administration people. Or, they could have been NeverTrumpers who’ve been fired or resigned and have grudges. Regardless, I simply don’t believe ANY anti-Trump legacy media story that doesn’t name its sources. Period!

Secondly, the timing of this article is entirely suspect, as it was released right before an important Israeli election. We know that Obama’s crew tried to unseat Netanyahu previously by working with his opponents, as noted here. This latest action smells like more of the same. The Obama crowd views Netanyahu as a major roadblock to restoring the failed JCPOA deal with Iran, and they’d like nothing more than to remove him from power. This was very likely the real purpose for that article!

The next “bombshell” was an accusation –reported by a former Obama administration hack, no less, and much-repeated throughout the legacy media – that the CIA extracted a Russian spy due to “wide concern in the intelligence community about mishandling of intelligence by Trump and his administration.” Yeah, right. Here’s the typical anti-Trump spin by a guy who’s been sliming @POTUS since early 2016.

Well, not so fast! Virtually as soon as the CNN report was published, even the NY Times reported that the spy was recalled even before President Trump took office. Furthermore, the CIA issued this extraordinary statement slamming the CNN report:

The Central Intelligence Agency on Monday evening slammed what it called CNN’s ‘misguided’ and ‘simply false’ reporting, after the cable channel’s chief national security correspondent authored a hole-filled piece claiming that the CIA “had pulled a high-level spy out of Russia because President Trump had ‘repeatedly mishandled classified intelligence and could contribute to exposing the covert source as a spy.’”

Read the rest here.

It was a false report, and yet that former Russian spy was virtually doxed by the legacy media, with his private address publicized for all the world to see. Hmmm. Maybe there’s more to this than meets the eye. This guy was supposedly “close to Putin,” yet he provided no information about Putin’s foreign policy objectives in Syria or with respect to Iran but supposedly confirmed that Putin directed the meddling in the 2016 election? Riiiiiight.  More likely, this was yet another false-flag misdirection to take the heat off Andrew McCabe, whose lawyer’s attempts to get the DoJ to not prosecute him for various crimes was turned down at about the same time this spy story popped up. It was also doubtless intended to keep the “muh Russia” hoax alive in support of Nadler’s “impeachment inquiry” (or whatever the Democrat/media euphemism for their continuing witch hunt is called these days).

Next was the drone and missile strike on two of Saudi Arabia’s ARAMCO facilities in Abqaiq and Khurais. This was a coordinated attack by 25 drones and missiles that put half of Saudi Arabia’s oil production capacity out of business until repaired. Refer to this for more.

The Iranians of course claimed innocence, but the weapons were Iranian-built, and the level of sophistication in the attack, as well as intelligence gathered subsequently from multiple sources, pointed squarely to Iran.

This attack was part of a continuing attempt by Iran to start a kinetic war because the sanctions are drastically affecting the IRI’s ability to pay salaries of the IRGC, internal security forces, and proxy terrorist groups around the region. They’re trying to split off European support for those sanctions, and a war would help do the trick. Given that the EU and even the Chinese are the ones dependent on Middle East oil (the US is a net exporter thanks to @POTUS!), that strategy won’t work. And we know that there are former Obama regime people like John Kerry and Ben Rhodes providing advice on strategy to the Iranians, too. There are a lot behind-the-scenes Logan Act violations that have happened over the past few months.

POTUS hasn’t taken the bait; there are numerous reports of devastating non-kinetic attacks on the Iranian oil industry, as well as another ratcheting up of sanctions on Iranian financial transactions.

How about that senior RCMP intelligence official being arrested for selling secrets? And then, suddenly, Prime Minister Trudeau made “’cultural appropriation” headlines? Are the two stories linked in some way? Here’s a Canadian Global News excerpt that broke the spy story:

Cameron Ortis faces seven counts dating as far back as 2015, including breach of trust, communicating “special operational information,” and obtaining information in order to pass it to a “foreign entity.” Ortis was identified when U.S. authorities “flipped” a suspect who gave him up. His arrest is believed to be part of a wider operation involving NATO allies and the Five Eyes — Canada, Australia, New Zealand, the U.S. and U.K.

Read more about it here.

There are lots of possibilities here. Ortis could have been spying for China (he speaks Mandarin) or Russia or multiple parties. Remember that FVEY spies were almost certainly part of the foreign element of #Spygate that is slowly being unraveled, too.

Nearly concurrently, we learned that Justin Trudeau wore black/brown-face several times “in his youth.” Now why would these two stories break just now when certainly the Trudeau story had to have been previously known? The Canadian election is right around the corner on 21 October. Could these stories be aimed at taking out Trudeau? Could the arrest be the Canadian intel services fighting back against their own corrupt Deep State actors in a manner similar to the exposure of #Spygate?

Some have even speculated that these two stories are part of the ephemeral anti-globalist coalition led by @POTUS pushing back on globalist actors in Canada and elsewhere. That speculation isn’t too far-fetched, especially now that the DoJ OIG’s FISA abuse report is in final review.

Next were the unsurprising statements made by Andrew McCabe during a CNN interview that he would “under no circumstances” take a plea deal with the DoJ. Yes, yes, the crook insists on maintaining his innocence until the bitter end. Gotta keep the GoFundMe $$ coming in! There’s an embedded video of the interview in this article, which describes the matter fairly well; the man is lying through his teeth.

He’s already been referred for prosecution by the DoJ OIG in the Clinton email scandal (that was what his lawyers were begging the DoJ to not indict him for), and the much more serious offenses – and a likely referral – will be forthcoming resulting from the FISA abuse report. He, the rest of the cabal, and their media allies are working overtime to keep the “muh Russia” hoax alive in support of Democrat attempts to “impeach” the president. Sorry, Andy; we’re onto your game BIGLY! Can’t wait for the referral from the OIG on FISA abuse!

Then there was the arrest (finally!) of big Democrat donor Ed Buck in LA on a charge of “distributing methamphetamines resulting in death.” Here’s the criminal complaint filed in California.

It’s SHAMEFUL, if not a complete cover-up, as this is at least the third time around for this guy (two men previously OD-d, and the third one survived to report the incident leading to Buck’s arrest).

Questions abound; here are some of them. Why wasn’t he charged previously after either or both of the two deaths? To which California Democrats (and others) did he donate money? How well does Adam Schiff know him, and how much did he receive from Buck? He donated a lot to the Obamas and Hillary Clinton; what do they say about Buck now, and will they return the contributions? This story is nowhere close to being over.

Finally, there is the evolving story about a supposed “whistleblower” from the intel community who claimed that @POTUS made a “very disturbing promise” to a foreign leader during a phone call. Except that we have subsequently found out WAAAAAY more about the story. We have learned that the whistleblower did not have first-hand access to the transcript of the phone call, nor did he/she have any of the context for that call. Part of that context included an above-board series of contacts between Ukraine and Trump adviser Rudy Giuliani THAT WAS INSTIGATED BY THE US STATE DEPT! Now check this next part out carefully from a recent article:

According to interviews with more than a dozen Ukrainian and U.S. officials, Ukraine’s government under recently departed President Petro Poroshenko and, now, Zelensky has been trying since summer 2018 to hand over evidence about the conduct of Americans they believe might be involved in violations of U.S. law during the Obama years. The Ukrainians say their efforts to get their allegations to U.S. authorities were thwarted first by the U.S. Embassy in Kiev, which failed to issue timely visas allowing them to visit America.

Then the Ukrainians hired a former U.S. attorney – not Giuliani – to hand-deliver the evidence of wrongdoing to the U.S. attorney’s office in New York, but the federal prosecutors never responded. The U.S. attorney, a respected American, confirmed the Ukrainians’ story to me. The allegations that Ukrainian officials wanted to pass on involved both efforts by the Democratic National Committee to pressure Ukraine to meddle in the 2016 U.S. election as well as Joe Biden’s son’s effort to make money in Ukraine while the former vice president managed U.S.-Ukraine relations, the retired U.S. attorney told me.

Read the rest here.

Did you catch all of that? The Ukrainians have apparently got the goods on Obama, Biden, the DNC, and others but were prevented by Deep State operatives from turning that evidence over to the DoJ, and somehow a “whistleblower” accuses @POTUS of making an “improper promise” during a phone call? Talk about reality turned inside-out! Even former CIA analyst and now CNN contributor Phil Mudd crapped all over the whistleblower and Congress, as noted here.

What we’ve got here is REAL foreign collusion – by Democrats! – being covered up by Deep State operatives, including trying to shift the blame onto POTUS and away from the Bidens (and others) who have MUCH to answer for regarding Ukraine! And of course, the legacy media are spinning furiously to protect the Democrat front-runner, when it’s already on the public record that he bragged about blackmailing the Ukrainians to fire a prosecutor looking into Hunter Biden’s “business contacts” (actually, bribery or extortion) in the Ukraine!

I predict that Ukraine will be Joe Biden’s political Waterloo. There is more coming out on this story, and the legacy media won’t be able to spin it away. Get ready for Fauxcahontas to top the Democrats’ Star Wars bar scene leader board, folks!

That concludes some dot-connecting on a number of very interesting stories of late. What’s the common thread throughout? All are bad news for Democrats, and the attacks against the President in particular are boomeranging BIGLY! Shades of Trumpenfreude! Some people are getting desperate, and none of them are named Trump or Trump’s allies!  What do you think?

The end.

Durham Looking At Ukraine And Other Countries’ Roles In Russia Collusion

Ukraine-Crimea

As journalists began trying to make sense of the phone call between Trump and Ukrainian president Volodymyr Zelensky following the release Wednesday morning of the transcript, other bits and pieces began to reveal themselves if one was paying attention.

Wall Street Journal columnist Kimberley Strassel, for example, pointed out something that — to my mind anyway — is at least one of the reasons the screeching for impeachment has begun anew: Attorney General William Barr has apparently asked U.S. Attorney John Durham to include Ukraine and its potential role in the Russia collusion investigation in his own investigation into the origins of Russia collusion (just writing that gave me a brain twisting headache).

What Strassel is referring to is a statement released by the DOJ Wednesday around the same time the transcript was released that indicated the DOJ was expanding their investigation into the origins of the Russia collusion investigation into Ukraine and other countries.

Trump and congressional Republicans have clamored for more information about the origins of the investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election, claiming it was rooted in political bias. [Justice Department spokesperson Kerri] Kupec said in a statement Wednesday that US Attorney John Durham is leading a DOJ team that “is separately exploring the extent to which a number of countries, including Ukraine, played a role in the counterintelligence investigation directed at the Trump campaign during the 2016 election.”

If I were a betting woman, I’d wager a chunk that this decision by the DOJ — along with the mention of Crowdstrike in the phone call — was what sparked this “whistleblower” into action. And then it became about obfuscation and misdirection, with Democrats on a mission to point everyone’s attention toward comments about Biden and the timing of holding aid so they could start the fireworks show of impeachment in the hopes Ukraine and Crowdstrike would get lost in the noise. None of which happens, it must be noted, without the media’s help.

This should all seem familiar by now. It fits a pattern of what Democrats have been doing since Trump won and their Russia collusion “insurance policy” was found out.

Incidentally, the DOJ was smart in that same Wednesday statement to point out that no conversations have occurred between Barr or any DOJ official with any Ukrainian official regarding any Biden. Not because the president was wrong to ask Ukraine to look back at potential corruption that might have occurred. I don’t believe he was out of line there at all.

But simply because they Democrats are desperately trying to find something to hold on to. And desperate people make desperate decisions, and it’s best to protect yourselves whenever and wherever you can.

Yet Another Nuisance Bureaucracy You’ve Never Heard Of – Power Grabbing Like Crazy

The Glove of Government

 

When I initially wrote this headline – I had written “THE Nuisance….”

It, of course, immediately thereafter occurred to me – that there are hundreds (thousands?) of such agencies, boards, bureaus, commissions and departments.

So I went with “YET ANOTHER Nuisance….”

The Deep State…is REALLY deep.

Filled with hundreds (thousands?) of agencies.  Populated by millions of career bureaucrats.

Whose primary imperative is keeping their ridiculous, ridiculously cushy gigs.  And whose secondary imperative – is increasing the power they lord over We the People.

Donald Trump ran for President – on Draining the Swamp.  We the People elected him – to Drain the Swamp.

The Deep State Swamp – is having none of it.

Millions of these careerist hacks have ever since been acting to undermine the duly elected President of the United States.

We are currently in the midst of yet another Deep State strike.  This ridiculous “whistleblower” leaker – who filed a report on a Trump-Ukraine call he/she didn’t actually hear.

But that is just one of the big ones – about which we become aware.

The hundred (thousands?) of agencies, boards, bureaus, commissions and departments – are almost all impeding the Trump agenda to varying degrees.

One way the Deep State refuses to Drain – is refusing to adhere to the President’s government-wide deregulatory mandate.

Presidential Executive Order on Reducing Regulation and Controlling Regulatory Costs

When The Boss issues an order – it’s an order.

The Swamp Creatures view the President’s orders the way pirates view the Pirates’ Code – “more like guidelines than actual rules.”

The nuisance government Swamp Hole refusing to comply with the President’s perspective on (less) government – is the Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau (TTB).

From Wikipedia:

“The Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau, statutorily named the Tax and Trade Bureau and frequently shortened to TTB, is a bureau of the United States Department of the Treasury, which regulates and collects taxes on trade and imports of alcohol, tobacco, and firearms within the United States.”

The TTB – is actually the third largest tax collector in the federal government (after the Internal Revenue Service [IRS] and Customs and Border Enforcement).

With government money confiscation – comes much power.

And the TTB is currently using it against the President We the People elected – and all of US.

What major annoyance is the TTB quietly inflicting upon us?

Distilled Spirits – Notices of Proposed Rulemaking

Here’s just some of the titanic stupidity….

“TTB is proposing to comprehensively amend its regulations governing the labeling and advertising of alcohol beverages….”

This is the unelected TTB – looking to unilaterally, fundamentally transform how ALL adult beverage purveyors both label and advertise their products.

That’s not at all a MASSIVE power grab.

What’s supposed to happen – if you actually want the government to do this – is:

Our elected Congress – drafts a piece of legislation calling on the government to do this.

Our Congressmen are then subjected to We the People availing ourselves of our First Amendment right to “lobby Congress for redress of grievances.”  Meaning we tell them what we think of the proposed legislation.

If Congress decides to then do so – both houses of Congress pass the bill.  And then our elected President – signs the bill into law.

All of these players have one thing in common: Accountability to We the People at the ballot box.

But of course this President – would never, EVER sign this nonsense into law.  As it is antithetical to his electoral mandate to Drain the Swamp.

So the Deep State Swamp Creatures are end-running this President – and the entire Constitutional process.

What else is the TTB looking to unconstitutionally do?

The new regulations would mandate all whiskey barrels be 50 gallons.

The industry uses, of course, a wide variety of sizes – from 5 gallons to 53 gallons. And the standard whiskey barrel  – is 53 gallons.

So the government mandate – will undo literally hundreds (thousands?) of years of distillation business practice.

Both by killing the 53 gallon industry standard – and assaulting the small, boutique distillers who have made small batches of spirits for…ever.

Almost all distillers will have to fundamentally transform their distillation processes – to adhere to this ridiculous mandate.

Which means: As always with all things Big Government – Big Business is the only part of the private sector that can absorb the government blows.

Hundreds (thousands?) of small distillers – and very many of the larger ones – will have to simply stop creating their beautiful products.

The TTB is looking to inflict other, additional damage upon the very many industries it in part oversees – but you by now get the idea.

This TTB nonsense – is everything government always is.

Totally pointless actions.

That grievously harm the private sector.

Inflicted by unelected bureaucrats – accountable to no one.

And in this instance:

All of this is transpiring in direct contravention of this President’s mandate and order – to REDUCE government regulations and regulatory costs.

This raft of TTB power grabs – exponentially INCREASES regulations and regulatory costs.

This must be stopped.  By any means necessary.

Almost certainly the best way:

With the entirety of TTB leadership, President Trump needs to yet again reach for his “The Apprentice” catch phrase:

You’re fired.”

Poll Shows the Majority of Americans Still Don’t Want Trump Impeached

As it has been for some time, when it comes to the issue of impeaching President Donald Trump, the American people just aren’t on board.

According to The Hill, a new poll out of Quinnipiac University found that while approval for Trump’s impeachment has raised a whopping two points, the majority of Americans do not agree with the Democrats that it’s the way to go:

The new poll from Quinnipiac University, released Wednesday, finds only 37 percent of registered voters say Trump should be impeached and removed from office, with 57 percent of respondents saying he should not be impeached.

The poll was conducted from Sept. 19 to 23, as Trump was embroiled in a controversy stemming from a call he had with the Ukrainian president, and the results come just a day after Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) announced that House Democrats were launching a formal impeachment inquiry into Trump.

The findings closely mirror results from a Monmouth University poll conducted last month before the Ukraine phone call controversy. That survey found 59 percent of voters were against impeaching Trump, with 35 percent of respondents backing the move.

This low opinion of impeachment has been steady across the board. In July, a Rasmussen poll showed that only 11 percent of Americans believed Trump would face impeachment, which had trended down from 29 percent in December of 2017. Between that year and now, the media has attempted to throw everything and the kitchen sink at Trump in order to stir feelings of impeachment among the populace, but have had no luck. It consistently remained low.

As before, this move toward impeachment is actually a big showing of the Democrats hand. They continuously try to find ways to have Trump booted out of office before the election takes place, or at least mire him in controversy during the elections. This is because the Democrats have next to no faith in their chosen candidates, and if we’re all being honest, you can’t blame them.

But this recent poll should indeed worry the Democrats further. While the Democrat base is fully on board with impeachment proceedings, Republicans and Independents are against it in their majorities. This should signal that they aren’t going to attract anyone else, and may even serve to repulse potential voters further.

What’s more, Trump seems to be welcoming this battle. He’s already fundraising off of it and even had a video ready to go once the impeachment proceedings were announced.

Judging by the numbers, this is one of the worst moves the Democrats could have made.

It’s All a Game: Dems Have No Plans yet to Vote for Formal Impeachment Inquiry

Westlake Legal Group media.townhall-9 It’s All a Game: Dems Have No Plans yet to Vote for Formal Impeachment Inquiry Uncategorized President Trump Impeachment of President Trump impeachment Front Page Stories Front Page Featured Story donald trump democrats Congress Abuse of Power

There was a lot of hullabaloo on Tuesday about House Speaker Nancy Pelosi announcing she had finally decided to move forward on an impeachment inquiry. Headlines blasted everywhere and some media even created their banners for “impeachment inquiry.”

But there’s still a bit of a problem, as the Republican ranking member, Rep. Doug Collins (R-GA) notes:

Are Pelosi and the Democrats planning on holding that vote to make it official? Not so much, as the House Rules Committee Chairman just revealed.

So what’s the point of all the theater? They are desperate to find something to hang on President Donald Trump. Nothing they have thrown at him so far has stuck. Joe Biden is lagging and they have a pretty dismal field of candidates. They are also desperate to appease their base who have been hot to impeach Trump since the moment he won office.

Why don’t they want to hold an official vote?

Among other reasons, they stand to lose a lot of critical seats in the House in states which Trump won, where voters are likely not to take kindly to Democrats trying to throw out the person they elected to office. As many as 31 folks may be at risk in those states.

Democrats don’t want to flag those representatives for voters to toss out and possibly lose the House.

Beyond that, a recent poll found that impeachment is supremely unpopular, not just among Republicans, but among critical independent voters and in those swing counties that they would also need to win in 2020.

Strangely enough, voters are not happy when Democrats spend their time and our money on frivolous efforts to throw out our duly elected leaders because Democrats are unhappy that their side lost.

Democrats may yet be forced into a formal vote.

But this ‘inquiry’ also shows every likelihood of boomeranging on the Democrats big time, exposing both their craven goals and possible Biden corruption. They’re literally walking into a buzzsaw without knowing what comes next, with Biden having already confessed on video to pressuring Ukraine to fire the prosecutor who was looking into corruption at his son’s company.

When people see all that, they’re not going to look kindly upon Democrats come November 2020.
