Well, I suppose it’s safe to scratch off Buzz-Feed as a reliable source of insider information on the Washington DC political scene. They now rank right up there with CNN, MSNBC, et. al.: as organs of fake news dedicated to only one thing, saving the Democrat party and its socialist agenda by eliminating the killer virus that is choking them to death, Donald Trump.
I’m surprised Mueller himself immediately debunked the Buzz-Feed story about the President directing his lawyer, Michael Cohen, to like to Congress and I suspect a rat here somewhere. That caught the Left-wing media totally by surprise. They changed their talking points to “what ifs” and rephrased their words to fool us, they think, into believing there was still a chance to find some tawdry evidence that could finally impeach Trump. That’s the face of desperation.
The demented talking heads of the left wing-media will, at any hint of a possible scandal, breath life into it in the vain hopes that they will expose some measure of truth that will grow into a scandal and end Trump’s presidency. Buzz-Feed tried to fulfill that mission and has now elevated itself to the highest level of distrust. By breathlessly publishing this false story without fact checking has rendered it as untrustworthy. For any group that pretends to be an objective reporting organ, to not even bother considering the “Red Flags” that identify fake news, seals the deal on their irrelevance. Now, anything they publish will be suspect!
The media, morally and ethically challenged, considers us to be politically irrelevant. They don’t really care what they say just so long as some of it sticks, somewhere. If they all say the same thing, then it must be true! Indeed, they believe their own copy and have thrown all standards aside in their singular, unquenchable desire to bring down Donald Trump.
Inherent in this daily assault of fake news is the primary goal of the Democrat-Socialists, the neutering of America’s heritage, culture and traditions for the sake of “diversity, multiculturalism and, truth be told, the elimination of all vestiges of influence of the European white male.
Consider the wall President Trump wants to build on our southern border. Under Obama, all the Democrats demanded it. Videos of their earnest desire to protect America from invasion by illegals are all over the internet. So what does the media do, ignore the historical past, focuses on the immediate future and whines about poor illegals and unemployed non-essential federal government employees, without a cent for the protective barrier we all wanted, once.
The media is all in on tooting the Democrats horn on policies that ignore Americas Vet’s, it’s tax payers, it producers and citizens of long standing, all for the sake of spending vast amounts of treasure to sustain people who don’t belong here simply because their presence gives them a humanitarian claim to feast at the trough of public assistance. When will the money run out?
The anti-Trump media, keen to be first to bring down the President, seems destructively eager to seize upon any and every rumor and regurgitate it out as factual truths. This time Buzz-Feed and the regurgitator’s got their fingers caught in a trap. Even Chris Wallace, on today’s Sunday Fox news, brought up the issue with Vice President Pence, apparently to achieve a “gotcha” comment. If Mueller already debunked the Buzz-Feed report, why didn’t the VP just say, “Why are we even talking about that issue Chris? It’s dead!” Well, its simply to keep it alive through one more news cycle. Chris Wallace, to be fair and balanced, just regurgitated leftist nonsense.
Remember, freedom is the goal, the Constitution is the way. Now, go get ‘em!
Kasich’s Mad Dream, and Then Came Trump
“Breaking News:” John Kasich, the unemployed former Governor of Ohio has signed on with CNN as a political commentator. Now, how can that possibly be “breaking news?” CNN has morphed from a news agency into the Current Narrative Network for advancing Democrat propaganda that few people seriously watch for any reason except for laughs. The reason is that John needs a platform if he seriously wants to stand for President against Donald Trump.
The governor himself has become something short of a laughing stock simply because he insists on nursing the mad dream of becoming the neoconservative president of America. Going to CNN will not advance his cause. His daily struggle to convince us that Trump still remains a danger to America, and he could do better as the President, is a pipe-dream.
Kasich, once a congressman, is a product of the old Wash. DC world of ‘go along to get along,’ politics of comity with your enemies through bipartisanship, hands across the aisle, consensus on policy (so long as it’s socialist), that sort of thing. Kasich’s had his shot. He left the DC Swamp to become Governor of Ohio figuring that was his best chance of achieving his dream. As he lost to Trump (4th place), does his opinion even count any more? Neo-Conservatism was voted out of the Republican Party with Trumps election and John Kasich ain’t going to bring it back. To maintain a public platform for airing his opinions, only CNN, and maybe MSNBC, remain to fulfill his mad dreams and, will, who really cares?
This is Kasich’s official internet announcement: “We are excited about what this means for Gov. Kasich and his growing ability to weigh-in on the issues that Americans care about. We expect to see him continue calling on Washington to end the non-stop politicking an actually do something to offer real solutions to America’s challenges. What’s our (t)ask today? It’s simple. With more interviews comes more things to share and grow Gov. Kasich’s message and audience,” followed by the standard plea for a donation. I’ll give John an ‘A’ for Attempting, but now, he should just go away, he’s out of the game and his time is up!
Pelosi and Schumer, Harry Reid before them, John Boehner and Paul Ryan, like Kasich, are all products of that once elite social club of poor politicians turned rich by the longevity of their political service. Then came Trump and the whole fabric of political comity has been ripped asunder.
Despite his dreams, John can’t fix his damaged image, the one Trump gave him on the debate stage in 2016. He can bloviate his opinions on CNN until he actually becomes one of them, a socialist in name as well as deed but, he hazards his integrity to continue this career path if it’s only a job he needs.
If viewers of CNN are expected to waste their time considering John’s opinion, then they can watch any of the talking heads on CNN. They don’t need John Kasich. CNN needs Kasich because for them, he is the once enemy who has seen the light and will become their useful idiot. For the anti-Trump CNN, having an alleged Republican fall into their hands like a ripe banana, is pure gold. Of course they’ll give him as much free airtime as he needs to challenge Donald Trump in 2020. Kasich will serve as a leftist pawn, his persona trapped in the mire of their progressive (socialist) dogma. John will die there, lost but not forgotten. A pity!
Remember, freedom is the goal, the Constitution is the way. Now, go get ‘em!
Senator David Perdue Discusses Immigration Latest On Fox News & ABC
WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator David Perdue (R-GA) spoke with Trish Regan on Fox News Channel’s Sunday Morning Futures and George Stephanopoulos on ABC’s This Week about recent meetings at the White House to fix the legal immigration system.
Highlights from Sunday Morning Futures
Negotiating A Deal: “The President has been very clear that any solution to DACA must include border security, including the wall, an end to chain migration, and an end to the visa lottery. Last week, we had two meetings at the White House. President Trump is very engaged on this issue, just like he was on tax. I’m hopeful we can get symmetry in this negotiation. In my business experience, that’s how you get to a deal and I still think there is a possibility to do that.”
Double Talk From Democrats: “It’s a gross distraction from the issue. Senators Schumer and Durbin both talked about ending parts of chain migration on the Senate floor. We’re doing things that the Democrats have voted for and have supported in the past. Under Bill Clinton in the 90s, we had a Presidential Commission actually recommend limiting chain migration and recommend moving to a merit-based immigration system based on who you are and not where you are from. The problem now is politics. That’s what’s so frustrating to all of us.”
Focusing The Scope: “Congress has failed three times in the last 11 years to fix the immigration system because they’ve been too comprehensive and tried to solve the legal problem, the temporary work visa problem, and the illegal immigration problem at the same time. What we’re doing now is limiting this debate to just the legal immigration system and I believe we can get to a solution.”
President’s Agenda Is Working: “If this were any other president getting the results that we’re getting right now in the economy, we would be crowing about the results. Two million new jobs created last year, 860 rules and regulations pulled back, 500 bureaucrats fired at the VA for non-performance, 300 fired in the Department of Education, consumer confidence is at a 17-year high, CEO confidence is at a 20-year high, 123 companies decided to give year-end bonuses because of our action on tax. This economy is beginning to move and what we have to do now is focus on immigration, infrastructure, and trade to keep moving the economy forward.”
Responding To Hawaii: “I don’t know the details of that yet, but it just heightens the fact that somebody made a mistake somewhere. As a member of the Armed Services Committee, I can assure you that we’ll get to the bottom of that.”
Highlights from This Week
Solving DACA: “The problem is Washington career politicians who just want to pander to their base. What we have right now is a gross misrepresentation of a meeting from Thursday. Two days earlier, the President held an hour-long open meeting with the media where Democrats and Republicans from both the House and Senate debated the issue. We want to solve the DACA problem. We want border security with a wall. We want to end chain migration and the visa lottery. That’s the scope we all agreed on Tuesday.”
Record Of Misrepresenting: “In 2013, Senator Durbin made the same allegation against a Republican leader in a meeting with President Obama, saying he chewed out the president and that this Republican leader was so disrespectful to President Obama they couldn’t even have the meeting. That’s what he said that in 2013. Later that day, President Obama’s own press secretary came out and said, ‘it did not happen.’ This is about a gross misrepresentation, and it’s not the first time.”
Current Negotiation Parameters: “We’re focusing on four things. The President has been consistent all along about what he wants in an immigration deal. I have been consistent. Senator Cotton has been consistent. Any deal on DACA has to include border security, including a wall, and the end to chain migration. That’s been consistent for the past year.”
Senator David Perdue Discusses Fixing Legal Immigration System On Fox News
“The January 19 deadline to fund the government and the March 5 DACA deadline are two totally separate issues”
WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator David Perdue (R-GA) spoke with Brian Kilmeade on Fox News’ Fox & Friends about yesterday’s bipartisan meeting at the White House to fix the legal immigration system.
Goals Established: “This President is an outsider. He is a business guy. He wants to get results on this issue just like he did on tax. What we did yesterday is agree on two things. One, we agreed on the scope of this current negotiation. We are not trying to solve all of our immigration problems here. What we want to do is solve the DACA issue, address border security, eliminate chain migration, and end the archaic visa lottery program. The second thing the President did yesterday was establish a sense of urgency. That is something rare in Washington.”
Differentiating Deadlines: “The January 19 deadline to fund the government, and the March 5 DACA deadline are two totally separate issues. I heard members on the other side talk about that after the meeting. January 19 is about funding the government, and that is another conversation entirely.”
Broad Support: “72% of Americans believe immigration should be focused on the worker and the immediate family. Name another idea or another issue here in Washington that 70% of Americans agree on. This is one issue where the American people are going to hold us accountable.”
Sense Of Urgency: “We are still working against a hard deadline of March 5. That’s how you bring a sense of urgency and get things done in Congress. President Trump said yesterday that he expects results on this issue. He is willing to work with us day and night. I think that was evident yesterday from the conversation we had in the White House.”
Focused Negotiations: “I give the President high marks for bringing a focus to this issue and not trying to solve every problem related to immigration but instead, focus right now on the legal immigration system.”
ICYMI: Collins Discusses Abedin Email Revelation with Fox News
WASHINGTON—Rep. Doug Collins (R-Ga.) joined Fox News today to unpack the latest developments surrounding the Russia investigation and the revelation that Secretary Clinton’s Deputy Chief of Staff, Huma Abedin, shared classified information over a private email account.
On whether any evidence shows collusion in the Russia investigation:
“I think what we’ve seen is none at this point. . . . Let the investigation go. If somebody did something wrong, we’ve always said those should be held accountable.”
“The frustration here is ‘What are we actually going for?’ The president has got an agenda to move American forward . . . we need to focus on what really matters, and, look, Democrats are just simply playing politics with this issue again.”
“Let’s see where the facts lead. This is something that’s been investigated. It’s being investigated—not only through the Mueller investigation, if there’s a Russian connection—but it’s also being investigated on Capitol Hill, both in the Senate and in the House.”
On the revelation that Huma Abedin shared State Department information over a private e-mail account:
“Democrats can say it’s partisan, but I’m just simply saying, ‘What is the law?’ and you can’t be in a position that Hillary Clinton was in or Huma Abedin was in and actually be in a position to say, ‘Oops, I just didn’t know—Oops, it was careless.’ No, it was gross negligence.”
Senator David Perdue Recaps This Year’s Results, Previews 2018 on Fox News
ATLANTA, GA – U.S. Senator David Perdue (R-GA) spoke with Mike Emanuel on Fox News’ Special Report about President Trump’s significant accomplishments during his first year in office and the priorities heading into 2018.
Delivering Results: “President Trump laid out four agenda items this year. We accomplished most of them. President Trump wants to continue to get results. The economy is going to move now that we started regulatory work and with the tax bill we just passed.”
Early Success: “The President is working diligently to get ready for 2018, but he is very happy with the results of 2017. His first year in office we saw 2 million new jobs created, 860 rules and regulations being reversed, illegal crossings down 60%, 500 people have been fired at the Veterans Administration for non-performance. The President is very excited about the future of our country now that we’re moving to get the economy going again.”
Business Focus: “We have a business guy in the White House for a change. He is moving at a business place, not a bureaucratic pace. Look, 2018 is an election year, but we have different leadership in the White House. He is not going to waive off his priorities for an election process.”
Immigration Solution: “President Trump, Senator Tom Cotton, and I have been consistently saying that any solution for DACA has to include an end to this archaic chain migration and money for border security and the wall at our southern border.”
Helping American Workers: “That’s what’s wrong with Washington, career politicians don’t understand how the free enterprise system works. The best thing we can do for the American worker, the American consumer, for anyone who works in America is to help our businesses, large and small, become competitive again with the rest of the world.”
Breaking The Gridlock: “The problem in Washington is gridlock. The minority party is causing that right now, but there are signs of encouragement. Frankly, the immigration issue is one that should have a bipartisan solution. We believe we can do that early in the new year. The President is going to keep focused on that as we get back to work next week.”
Collins Answers Questions at Tax Reform Final Passage
WASHINGTON—Rep. Doug Collins (R-Ga.) joined Fox News today to address questions as the House voted in favor of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act’s final passage.
Collins also said of today’s vote, “The House just took the final, confident step to send pro-family, pro-growth, pro-hope tax reform to President Trump’s desk. This process started in the House, and I’m excited to have voted to keep our promise to the American people—again.”
On who will see the benefit of tax reform:
“The majority of Americans are going to see money in their pockets. . . . That’s the kind of growth we’re looking for, that’s the kind of thing that, come February—when they see their paychecks—they’re going to know that what we’re talking about here actually matters to the American public.”
On Democrats’ claims that the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act is a bad bill:
“The problem here is not the tax code. The problem here is that [Democrats] want to politicize the tax code because they believe that the government is a much better way to spend people’s money. . . . Come February, let them look some of their constituents in the eyes and say, ‘You know, I really didn’t want you to get that money back in your paycheck. We could spend it better.’ That will be an interesting argument.”
Collins Discusses Rosenstein Briefing and Tax Reform
WASHINGTON—Rep. Doug Collins (R-Ga.), Vice Chair of the House Republican Conference and member of the House Judiciary Committee, joined Fox News today to discuss the House Judiciary Committee’s oversight hearing with Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein. He also spoke with Fox Business about the status of conservative tax reform and potential for infrastructure development in 2018.
On whether the Deputy Attorney General offered satisfactory answers at the oversight hearing:
“No, I’m not satisfied at all. In fact, Mr. Rosenstein, the Deputy Attorney General, shouldn’t be satisfied.”
“We’ve not even answered simple things like is [Strzok] still in communication with the Mueller team? Does he have a security clearance? Why was he put in human resources where he could influence other people?”
On the status of tax reform:
“We’re on the . . . very verge of getting exactly what we’ve told the American people we’re going to do and what the president said—by the end of this year, by Christmas actually, we’re going to pass a tax reform package that begins the process of doing what I’ve said before. We’ve got the best workers in the world, we’ve got the best ideas in the world, we’ve got an energy independence—we’ve got the worst tax system.
“Now we’re able to start saying we’ve got a tax system that puts us competitive not only with the world but [that] puts money into people’s pockets come the first of the year, and that’s something we’re excited about.”
ICYMI: Collins Talks Tax Reform Progress with Fox News
WASHINGTON—Rep. Doug Collins (R-Ga.), Vice Chair of the House Republican Conference, joined “Happening Now” with Jon Scott today to discuss the progress Congress has made towards sending a tax reform bill to the president.
On the path ahead for tax reform:
“Tax reform is coming. The administration is on board. The House and the Senate are on board. We’re looking forward to staying focused on that . . . tax reform is on track.”
“You have a president who is engaged, a president who has said that this is good for our economy. He understands the working class and what they’re doing, and how they need the tax reform, and how our businesses need it to make us competitive across the globe.”
On Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi’s calling the tax reform plan “Armageddon”:
“Nancy Pelosi is the queen of hyperbole. . . . Here’s the problem—it’s a simple fact—she is in love with a government that likes to spend your money, so she’s going to say everything she can to keep as much money in Washington, D.C. to do what she wants to do . . .”
“[Republicans] believe that the American people and businesses are the ones that drive this country—not the federal government.”
