Reports of Sen. John McCain’s Condition Not Sounding Good…

Yesterday Joe Biden was on The View, and Meghan McCain broke down in tears discussing the similarities between his son’s brain cancer death and her father’s current medical state.

No matter what my personal political beliefs and views are I would never wish such heartbreak and devastation on anyone…

John McCain described as increasingly frail, Senate sources say

Prayers for Sen. McCain and his family.

The Real Election Meddling Appears to Have Come from Inside the FBI

Oh, how deep that fix was in for Hillary Clinton, and against Donald Trump…

WSJ (payside): Fusion DoJ: It’s getting hard to tell where the Clinton campaign ends and the federal law enforcement apparatus begins.

FOX News: Comey edits revealed: Remarks on Clinton probe were watered down, documents show

Sen. Ron Johnson, R-Wis., chairman of the Senate Homeland Security Committee, released copies Thursday of the edits to Comey’s highly scrutinized statement.

The original statement said it was “reasonably likely” that “hostile actors” gained access to then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s private email account. That was later changed to say that scenario was merely “possible.”

Another edit showed language was changed to describe the actions of Clinton and her colleagues as “extremely careless” as opposed to “grossly negligent.” This is a key legal distinction.
Johnson, writing about his concerns in a letter Thursday to FBI Director Christopher Wray, said the original “could be read as a finding of criminality in Secretary Clinton’s handling of classified material.”

“The edited statement deleted the reference to gross negligence – a legal threshold for mishandling classified material – and instead replaced it with an exculpatory sentence,” he wrote.

The edits also showed that references to specific potential violations of statutes on “gross negligence” of classified information and “misdemeanor handling” were removed.

The final statement also removed a reference to the “sheer volume” of classified information discussed on email.

[…]

That includes, Johnson said, “repeated edits to reduce Secretary Clinton’s culpability in mishandling classified information.”

“In summary, the edits to Director Comey’s public statement, made months prior to the conclusion of the FBI’s investigation of Secretary Clinton’s conduct, had a significant impact on the FBI’s public evaluation of the implications of her actions,” Johnson said.

Also removed in Comey’s draft was the mention that Hillary Clinton’s private server had been hacked by an outside entity. Hence, the major threat to the security of this nation.

The Grand Old Party Has Dementia…

The GOP has been a party of inertia for quite awhile now. Go back to the Ronald Reagan years and you’ll see the party players even had a bit of a finger up their ass about him. George H.W. Bush had a “meh” standing with the party. His son, George W. Bush, had a better relationship with the GOP after the 9-11 attacks, but as the two front war moved on and the democrats and the MSM began throwing shit at him, even though he constantly gave the democrats every damn thing they wanted for eight years, the GOP establishment shoved Bush into the “meh” corner and put up the ten-foot-pole reach.

In 2016 the GOP could not get behind any of the two stages of candidates … Well, I imagine that is not exactly accurate as the party seemed to think yet another “meh”-ish Bush might be the next coming of his malleable Bush predecessors. But Donald Trump drank him under the table, along with the rest of the wide republican primary field. And then some of these GOPers announced they not only could not support the party’s 2016 general election candidate for POTUS, but would be voting for Hillary Clinton … something it is said some in the Bush family indeed did do at the election polls in November of 2016.

Now Pres. Trump is not having the due allegiance of the establishment GOP in the Congress, and when he tries to go middle-road to appease them he gets ire from the conservative bent of the GOP. Why is it this party is so fond of losing the victory every damn time they find themselves in full control of both houses of Congress AND the White House. I mean, it’s something they kept saying during Obama’s eight year occupation of the Oval Office, “Well, yeah, we have both houses but we don’t have the White House…” Now they do but they still cannot muster unity the way the blindly following democrat party did for Obama. It’s really getting intolerable.

Look, I did not like Roy Moore. I don’t doubt he had atleast half the “good old southern boy” time Bill Clinton had back in the day. And while I find such underage predators disgusting and despicable did we hear anything closely resembling Juanita Broaddrick‏’s charges of rape from Bill Clinton, or the stories by her and others about Hillary’s bullying and intimidation for silence over her habitual offender husband, even while in the White House? All that said, Moore would have assured the republican seats in the Senate, and he would have only been there just over two years, all the while being a “Yes man” to Trump and the majority. The party could have moved him along in the next election for that seat in a distinctly red state and brought in another senator to their liking that would have won in that election down the road. Nope. They just couldn’t do that amid the stink bomb of liberal Hollywood donors and MSM pricks being outed sexual assholes and their own sitting members as groping, soliciting dicks who were falling on their swords and resigning. And here we are, down one Senate seat to a pro-abortion-at-any-time democrat.

What a fucking mess, all of it the GOP’s own doing. I mean, since the invasion of the Oval Office by Barack Obama the republican base has been trying their damnedest to send levelheaded, Constitutional conservatives into both houses of the Congress to pull this sumbitch party back on track, but they spurn them. And in the 2016 primary they just would not commit to anyone, let alone Trump when it came down to the wire against Hillary! As I said, that wasn’t bad enough, they preferred her over him!!! Like, what the actual fucking fuck?!? The GOP cannot unite to save their lives. And what’s worse, if possible, the democrats and their MSM arm know it and take full advantage of it, over and over again and again.

Lunch Break: Nibbles and Dribbles…

“There’s a lot of change coming, people watch television differently, not news or business, but entertainment they watch very differently. We are seeing that in the mergers of new companies. Silicon Valley has spent tens and tens of billions on entertainment programming—so it makes sense,” Murdoch told FOX Business’ Maria Bartiromo on “Mornings with Maria.”

As part of the deal, Disney will acquire the studios that produce Marvel superhero movies, “The Simpsons” and the “Avatar” franchise, along with along with cable and international TV businesses.

Immediately prior to the acquisition, 21st Century Fox will separate the Fox Broadcasting network and stations, Fox News Channel, Fox Business Network, FS1, FS2 and Big Ten Network into a newly listed company that will be spun off to its shareholders.

The Infected Self-Inflicted Wound the MSM Incessantly Keeps Scab-Picking and Bleeding Everywhere

It has actually been more than a week. For a couple decades now the MSM has chosen political sides and practiced accordingly. It has progressively gotten worse.

PJM writer Charlie Martin @ Facebook: “Here’s a pro tip: if you don’t want to be called “fake news” don’t keep getting caught doing this shit.”

And they’ve yet to get a clue. When I took a news class in broadcasting school in the early 1980s I was told to keep my feelings to myself. People were only to hear the facts and decide for themselves how they felt about stories. Not good enough for today’s MSM. They only feed the masses crumbs of detail on a story and jam the rest with fillers of biased feelings and unfounded innuendo with a very shaky backing of “an anonymous source” all on a recipe of agenda not responsible journalism. For example, most of the reporting during the Iraq war was based on American reporters staying in the Green Zone and depending on local stringers doing leg work to bring back what they would report. There were a few brave actual journalists out there working very hard, at risk of their own lives, in the mess with the troops who didn’t have network access that got out regular real journalism on their journo-blogs.

Pete Vernon @ Columbia Review Journal: The media today: Journalism’s terrible, horrible, no good, very bad week

With a president eager to paint the press as his enemy, and at least part of the nation ready to believe him, the stakes for getting the story right are high. Reporters make mistakes, of course, and when they do, they correct, explain, and move on. Three mistakes that all erred in the same direction—that is, the initial, incorrect reporting was worse for Trump than what actually happened—won’t help journalists regain the trust among Trump’s supporters, many of whom believe that the media is out to get him.

Any way you look at it, last week was a bad one for “the media” at large. The corrections, reflection, and at times over-the-top hand-wringing are all being adjudicated in the public eye, and it seems more people are paying more attention than ever before…

Read the whole thing. I think he goes a bit easy on the MSM. These are not “mistakes”. They are crafted to be part of the pledged #Resist movement against a duly elected POTUS in an effort to manipulate the public into believing the fake news and really never hearing the retractions. As I have said before, the MSM is that smarmy courtroom lawyer that knows what he/she is about to say will be objected to and objection sustained by the judge and the judge instruct the jury to disregard what the lawyer had just said … but they cannot unhear it. It has become the façade by which they will view and perceive everything from there on out about the case/issue. Same with the MSM and the American public. Remember, after the 2016 election the media giants came out and vowed to work hard to cover this POTUS and his administration. Oh, sure, obviously after the eight years of not critically covering Obama and his administration.

Matt Welch: Journalists are at war with their critics — and they’re losing badly

After President Trump recently tweeted another sophomoric insult at CNN anchor Don Lemon, for example, the network opted for not a bemused stoicism but a condescending whine: “In a world where bullies torment kids on social media to devastating effect on a regular basis with insults and name-calling, it is sad to see our president engaging in the very same behavior himself. Leaders should lead by example.” Boo-frickity-hoo.

As the above illustrates, the two opposing views on media are self-reinforcing and increasingly dominate American politics. Anti-media fervor is arguably the strongest glue left holding together the Republican coalition, as evidenced by our troll president; his troll-Svengali, Breitbart editor Stephen K. Bannon; and the uber-troll, twice-defrocked Alabama jurist Roy Moore.

The legacy media and its left-of-center customer base, meanwhile, cannot resist taking the bait, leading to too much anti-Trump error and an off-putting haughtiness when caught out. Reliable Sources this weekend used the occasion of a bad CNN mistake — the network had reported that Trump and his son received a WikiLeaks web address and encryption key before they were made public, when in fact they got them after — to have several guests bemoan Trump’s attacks on the media, rather than, I don’t know, delve into exactly how CNN messed up.

The struggle against Trump’s norms-shattering presidency is real. So is the decreasing marginal utility of crying wolf at every opportunity. How to thread that needle? Another CNN anchor, Jake Tapper, pointed the way at the L.A. Press Clubs awards this year.

“We don’t need to give the enemies of the Fourth Estate any ammunition,” Tapper warned. “That means we need to be squeaky clean. We’re not the resistance. We’re not the opposition. We’re here to tell the truth, report the facts, regardless of whom those facts favor one way or the other.”

The White House press corps has come close to being a clown gallery. Press Secretary Sarah Sanders has her hands full with some of these petty and vindictive fools either out to “gotcha” the administration or get ‘payback’ for being called on their fake news. You see, the MSM believes it is above reproach, or something. How pathetic have they become? Well #PieGate began at Thanksgiving when the painfully stupid reporter questioned the White House Press Secretary’s baking of a chocolate pecan pie after posting a picture of it on Twitter. So, Sanders promised to make more for the press corps, and she did so with documented photographs…

#PieGate III commences…and Sarah Huckabee Sanders is WINNING!

What has become even worse for the MSM is that their worker bees have taken full advantage of social media (Twitter in particular) to further their inane bullshit and failingly defend it. The news media is only part of this misinformation via playing on feelings fake news era.

The latest involves CNN, of course:

Anderson Cooper’s Trump Tweet Happened After Assistant’s Phone Was Taken

Apple or banana? We’re STILL very curious about Anderson Cooper’s assistant and that tweet

Hey, why isn’t CNN asking THESE questions about @AndersonCooper’s anti-Trump tweet?

But the MSM disease has spread to the would be latenight “comics” taking up this biased agenda-driven banner of news reporters and go full-throated into the weak-kneed feelings of viewers.

The other night Jimmy Kimmel brought his baby son, recently post-op, out onto the stage to yet again bark about an issue completely based on democrat talking-points provided to him for his monologue. A recovering baby is the prop to get viewers to not doubt what he is saying, you know, that the GOP tax bill is going to cause dead kids in the streets, or something…

Yep, nothing like dragging your post-op baby out into a studio filled with cold and flu season bacteria and virus carrying staff/crew and audience. But it’s all about the shock and awwwwe-a-little-baby-and-his-weepy-rich-daddy manipulative stunt with the left. Never mind the actual facts. Just read his tears.

POTD: The Stupid Hurts

Ask stupid questions you’ll get an answer pointing out how stupid you are. As if we need more proof from CNN…

CNN’s April Ryan asked:

“Is Gillibrand owed an apology for the misunderstanding of the president’s tweet this morning? Because many, including the senator, think that it’s about sexual innuendos.”

Sanders fired back by dropping the hammer:

“I think only if you’re mind is in the gutter would you have read it that way. … So no.”

Ryan then came back and said:

“No, it’s not. … What he said was open. And it was not mind in the gutter.”

Sanders then made it very clear:

“He’s obviously talking about political partisan games that people often play and the broken system that he’s talked about repeatedly. This isn’t new. This isn’t a new sentiment. This isn’t new terminology.

He’s used it several times before. As I said a few minutes ago, he’s used it several times before referencing men of both parties, in fact. And so I think that there — if you look back at the past comments he’s made, it was very clear what his reference was.”

Self-Incrimination: More Texts Reveal YUGE Anti-Trump Bias in Mueller Investigation

Did anyone else see democrat Congressman Cicilline on Tucker Carlson last night? He continually went to a fistful of democrat talking points to defend the ‘investigation’, and insisted on pointing out 1) Mueller is an alleged republican and 2) that these people “take and oath” and “are punished if found doing wrong”, even going so far ro say some have already been punished. The interview is longer than the link provides, but he was doing nothing but turd-polishing a mound that is growing and stinking by the day. This web has been spun very deep and for a long time. Yet, he’s treating it as if it’s nothing. 3) He also insisted they “put aside their personal feelings and beliefs”, insinuating that is what has been done during this investigation. 4) shrugged-off the fact that MANY of the lawyers Mueller hired for this investigation have direct ties with Fusion GPS or the Clintons/ Clinton Foundation. My husband, who doesn’t have the time or inclination to follow this stuff, was even yelling at the TV last night.

So, the talkingpoint-armed congressman believes these people in the swamp always put aside personal beliefs and bias in order to do their jobs fairly and according to their oaths and not operate according to their own personal agenda(s)?

Ace @ AoSHQ: Strzok/Page Texts Are Maybe Worse Than You Guessed. Even CBS can’t spin this one…

Washington Examiner: DOJ provides Congress with hundreds of texts between ex-Mueller team agent Peter Strzok and alleged mistress Lisa Page

FOX News: Ex-Mueller aides’ texts revealed: Read them here

Powerline: Strzok-Page texts show hatred of Trump by the two ex-Team Mueller members

Twitchy: ‘Wow’! These texts were actually sent by FBI agents working on the Mueller probe

AoSHQ: Strzok Wrote That Trump Could Not Be Permitted to Become President, and That an “Insurance Policy” Was Necessary

Within some of the presented text exchanges we get to see exactly what Strzok and Page think of over half the American people that voted for Trump.

Missing from these above reports is one text where it is suggested they no longer text anymore on the same devices/ accounts out of concern for it might become public at sometime in the future.

No shit, Sherlocks.
