No part of the mainstream media will tell you but this is the greatest political scandal in American history

Limbaugh claimed that the Mueller Russia probe is itself a cover-up of collusion between Russia-assisted Democrats and the Obama-era Justice Department to harm Trump in 2016

Not a “hoax” but actual treason. Obviously not from an American newspaper but from the Daily Mail in the UK: Trump quotes Rush Limbaugh’s claim that Mueller’s investigators ‘ought to be in jail’ for cover-up of ‘silent coup’ against the president

  • Rush Limbaugh cited the case of Andrew McCabe, the former deputy FBI director, in claiming some Justice Department officials should be locked up
  • McCabe says he knew of Justice Department discussions about using the 25th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution to remove Donald Trump from office. 
  • ‘The Mueller investigation, I believe, is a cover-up of all of that. It’s to distract everybody’s attention,’ Limbaugh claimed
  • President Trump tweeted a tweaked-for-space version of his comments
  • ‘These people are unelected. They took it upon themselves to overthrow the election results of 2016,’ the radio host said
  • He claimed the Obama DOJ ignored ‘potential real collusion and conspiracy between Democrats and Russians to undermine the Trump candidacy’

Meanwhile the story that is dominating the American media is an actual hoax from some B-Grade actor who tried to pretend that he had been attacked in sub-zero weather by two MAGA-hat-wearing racists, who turn out to be black African friends of his.

The American mainstream media is a conspiracy on its own and by itself.

Post-natal abortion (infanticide)

NORTHAM: If a mother is in labor, I can tell you exactly what would happen. The infant would be delivered, the infant would be kept comfortable, the infant would be resuscitated if that’s what the mother and the family desired, and then a discussion would ensue between the physicians and the mother.

Here’s the backstory and commentary via Rush Limbaugh. But the video of the Governor of Virginia interviewed on radio demonstrates beyond all doubt that this is exactly what he said. The subsequent wish to clarify and explain has arisen only because of the fire this has lit, but not even remotely within the mainstream media.

I have only gone back to this, which is from January 30, because I have met people who have never heard a word of this, and will not believe it could possibly be true. I suspect it would not undermine their support for the left and the Democrats since there are more important principles at stake – don’t ask me what. The only evidence that the left is perfectly aware how barbaric this is comes from the fact that this kind of information is already hard to find on the net. If the Governor of Virginia is mentioned at all, it is only because when he was 25 years old in the 1980s he appeared in a photo either in blackface or wearing a KKK bedsheet when he had just graduated from med school, since which time he has been a paediatrician.

As for the health of the baby, this was also discussed at the link:

A tweet here from an MD and MBA, Omar Hamada . “I want to clear something up so that there is absolutely no doubt. I’m a Board-Certified OB/GYN who has delivered over 2,500 babies. There’s not a single fetal or maternal condition that requires third-trimester abortion. Not one. Delivery, yes,” all kinds of conditions that might require delivery, but, “Abortion, no.”

The “consent” of two doctors is the kind of formality that is all pretence. How a baby can get to full term and only then at the ninth month discover some deformity is so improbable that it is just said to confuse the debate. At least till now, and possibly for a bit into the future, that there is something radically wrong with the child remains the cover story for murdering babies.

And if you are looking for another take on this same thing: Modern philosophy, untethered from morality, is just nihilism in fancy dress. There you find:

The reality is that, without a moral construct, philosophy is simply a way to intellectualize whatever outcomes one prefers. That’s why Peter Singer, an endowed philosophy chair at Princeton University, can argue that parents should have a 30 days period after their baby is born to decide whether or not to kill the baby, a position even more extreme than that espoused by the average abortion-obsessed Leftist….

When I raised Singer as an example of the selfish, morality-free nihilism that passes for modern philosophy, the other people involved in the conversation were quite sure that I was making things up in order to justify my arcane, impractical conservative views. Then, when I offered to send them links proving Singer’s viewpoints, they hastily declined that offer. They did not want to know.

The reality is they do not want to know. They think being on the left, and being able to self-identify as socialists or some such thing, makes them nice people. In actual fact, it turns them into monsters, but self-satisfied monsters.

WE DON’T EVEN KNOW THE HALF OF IT: AND HERE IS SOME OF IT.

Planned Parenthood kept aborted babies alive to harvest organs, ex-technician says

Pro-life group releases 7th undercover video

In an undercover video released Wednesday, a former technician for a tissue-harvesting company details how an aborted baby was kept alive so that its heart could be harvested at a California Planned Parenthood facility, raising more legal questions about the group’s practices.

Holly O’Donnell, a former blood and tissue procurement technician for the biotech startup StemExpress, also said she was asked to harvest an intact brain from the late-term, male fetus whose heart was still beating after the abortion.

StemExpress supervisor “gave me the scissors and told me that I had to cut down the middle of the face. And I can’t even describe what that feels like,” said Ms. O’Donnell, who has been featured in earlier videos by the Center for Medical Progress, a pro-life group that previously had released six undercover clips involving Planned Parenthoodpersonnel and practices.

David Daleiden, the video project leader, said the undercover footage and interviews show that fetuses are sometimes delivered “intact and alive” before their organs are harvested.

The federal Born-Alive Infants Protection Act of 2002 says that when a child is born alive, including having a beating heart, he or she is a legal person and has a right to lifesaving medical care.

The media is more dishonest than anyone can imagine

I received this note which really is astonishing:

Regarding SOTU: Did you notice at about the 1 hour 21 minute mark of USA Today’s SOTU broadcast they edited out the word “never” when Trump put down Socialism? USA Today used their 2 second delay privilege in “live” broadcasting to black out “never” so it sounded like Trump said “the US will … be a Socialist state”.

Watch, it’s just like he says – start at around 1:19:

It’s not a glitch. They really cannot bear the thought that the United States may not become a socialist country. They are not just dishonest, but evil.

I had put this version up since it was the first one available at Youtube. But they added afterwards the various so-called “fact checks” that attempt to counter the points the President made. They are the most vile liars imaginable, worse than the Soviet press who lied because of the threat of the gulag. These people do it because they are dishonest, and clearly wish to actually see the US, and the rest of us, become socialist tyrannies.

To help you watch the Superbowl

Tom Brady during Super Bowl XLIX

Please yourself, the Boston Patriots v the Los Angeles Rams. If you don’t know the game, you won’t understand much of what’s going on. But if you do understand, North American football (it was invented in Canada) has more potential for drama and surprise than any sport I know. As for the game itself, this is how you can help to pick your team, care of CNN who are not doing their bit to keep politics out of sport: Trump stokes rage against his friends, the Patriots.

The New England Patriots are evolving into the most hated team of all time, and Donald Trump isn’t helping matters. He keeps boasting about his love for owner Robert Kraft, coach Bill Belichick, quarterback Tom Brady and nearly everybody else associated with an NFL franchise that more than a few folks beyond Boston Harbor can’t stand.

Go ahead, America. You have my permission to pull like crazy Sunday for the Los Angeles Rams over the Patriots during Super Bowl LIII in Atlanta.

Or not. Go Pats!

And here’s when you can watch the game. Lots of pubs around, but they don’t show the actual Superbowl ads in Oz which for some people is the reason to watch the game at all.

Where can one go to find out the facts?

From Instapundit but as usual, the greater interest is in the comments. This is the post:

THEY ARE DESTROYING THEMSELVES WITH TRUMP DERANGEMENT SYNDROME, AND EVEN THE ATLANTIC HAS NOTICED:The Media Botched the Covington Catholic Story. And the damage to their credibility will be lasting. “The full video reveals that these kids had wandered into a Tom Wolfe novel and had no idea how to get out of it.”

As have we all. Well, I have some idea.

And below are a pair of comments which are right on the money. The first comment goes with the video.

“He said that SM was designed to reward pathological behavior. The longer people are conditioned to produce tweets or posts that generate likes, the lower they go and eventually can never recover from the dissonance of the real world versus the matrix. He estimated that 1 billion are as good as lost in the matrix. I wonder how many of that billion are right here in the US. The dilemma is how does one treat “conditioned” depression – – treating addictions is easy compared to treating the brainwashed narcissist.”

The leftist in the media believe they are telling the truth. They saw 30 seconds to 2 minutes of the Covington tape. The subjects were young men, white, from a private Catholic High School protesting for life and wearing MAGA hats! 100% pure hated deplorables. Their truth, these kids are 100% monsters. They were confronted in pure leftist agitprop, by a Native American activist, banging a drum. 100% loved by leftist media. Nothing more to write. Jurnolists are indoctrinated leftists, the only truth is their own, nothing to do with context or facts. Their audience, the same people who watch Colbert, the other members on their social and work groups. They work for liberal executives and get ad spend from most firms in deep blue America. They never get protest, they get favorable press coverage. Their behavior won’t change, not without ramifications.

Covington boys invited to the White House

From Covington Kids Going To The White House.

On Tuesday, Nick Sandmann, the student from Covington Catholic High school who was at the center of the controversy with Native American Nathan Phillips last Friday near the Lincoln Memorial, confirmed to The Daily Wire that the White House has reached out to host the students. Sandmann said, “The President wants to send a plane down to get us.”

The article speculates on why he might have extended the invitation, with this their final conclusion: “Trump simply wants to support the boys whom he thinks have been wronged.”

The actual reason is that PDT is the greatest marketing genius ever to become President, who is also aware that we are in a war for the survival of Western Civilisation, which has all those features dispensable on the left, such as free market economies, freedom of thought and freedom of religion, none of which is actually free but must be fought for and defended. And if you don’t think all of this is at risk, let me therefore bring this to your attention: 74% of Democrats would vote for Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez for President.

A new Axios/SurveyMonkey poll finds that 74% of Democrats (and people who lean Dem) would consider voting for Ocasio-Cortez if she were old enough to run for president. (She’s 29; you have to be at least 35.)

  • That includes the 17% who would “definitely” vote for her.
  • Jon Cohen, SurveyMonkey’s chief research officer, tells me: “These data show the phenomenon is real — she tops Sen. Schumer in favorability among Democrats and overall nearly rivals Speaker Pelosi.”

There are no principles on the left, only a will to power plus an astonishing level of ignorance.

Media won´t cover it

Kim Jong Un was in Beijing this week as U.S. trade officials met with their Red Chinese counterparts. Behind the talk of tariffs and trade deficits, the denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula loomed. A war that began 68 years ago nears its end. The American press is ignoring it, instead nattering on about nonsense. The big headline in the Washington Post today was, “Trump has concealed details of his face-to-face encounters with Putin from senior officials in administration.” So what? President Trump does not report to them — they report to President Trump. Basic civics are beyond the
 

Border Wall Construction Continues…

Conservative Treehouse, by Sundance    Original Article
 
With massive amounts of misinformation surrounding the southern border and the need for a border security wall, the following video has been produced. Pushing back against intentional media disinformation is something critical to supporting President Trump. Feel free to share this video with family or friends on various social media platforms: (Video: Build the Wall: Construction Progress)

Poll position

Rush Limbaugh discussed the dog that didn’t bark in the night: Rush Limbaugh notices something glaringly missing from border wall discussion.

He specifically noted that no meaningful polls were published after President Donald Trump delivered an Oval Office address Tuesday in which he explained the ongoing battles to the public and implored Democrat to end them by agreeing to secure the southern U.S. border.

“There has been no polling data that we could find anywhere following Trump’s speech,” Limbaugh said Friday. “There weren’t any Frank Luntz focus groups with any undecideds out there.”

“They didn’t gather any Trump voters in Pennsylvania, Ohio, Wisconsin, and ask them if they’re still behind Trump. The media didn’t do any of the stuff they usually do. We have no idea what the valued and very wise independents thought of Trump’s speech.”

But polling has been done and the data are as you would expect: Polling Data Shows Nearly 80% Of Americans Consider Illegal Immigration A Serious Problem/Crisis

As it says at the link:

It’s the data most responsible for the sudden shift in Democrats’ tone this week as more and more in Congress give the media hints that they are willing to allocate funding for at least some of the border protection measures being pushed by President Trump. You see, it’s not that these Democrats in Congress think it’s the right thing to do but rather that the vast majority of Americans (nearly 80%) think it’s the right thing to do and so the hands of Democrats are now being forced to do something or face a serious political backlash heading into 2020.

And you know what? You’d get the same results in Australia if we did the same polling here.

Presidential advice on how to get things done

WITH MORE JOURNALISTIC FAILINGS HERE: CNN’s Jim Acosta mocked for accidentally proving that border walls work.

More at the link, including lots of piling onto Unlucky Jim, the very model of a modern media analyst. He is utterly representative of the class of leftist fools the rest of society must continually contend with.

Up against the wall

There really should be no issue about border protection. You either have a nation state or you don’t. Even without denying welfare to non-citizens, a nation is not a nation unless it controls its borders. That the Democrats, and the left generally, sees advantage in bringing in new welfare-dependent hordes to maintain their share of the vote is the only reason this is ongoing. Increasing the numbers of those who vote for a living is the sole reason the left supports open borders. Madness everywhere – Germany, France, Sweden, the UK – but those at the top on the left will take their graft and be gone behind their walls and gated communities by the time the full costs are being paid, just not paid by them.

If you would like to understand the view from the right, there is no one who may have put it better than John Hinderaker at Powerline: Trump Kills It. Here’s the final para:

Our country is being invaded, as President Trump and most Americans understand. It is far past time to defend ourselves. President Trump wins this one, hands down.

The local press is all left and far left, alas including The Oz. It has columnists on both sides, but the editorial line on things like this might as well be Fairfax. Start with its Froeign Affairs editor: Sense and nonsense in Trump’s Mexican stand-off.

Donald Trump gave a frankly weird speech, his first prime-time television address to the nation as President, about illegal immigration and the need for a wall along the US’s southern border with Mexico.

And then this from its Washington Correspondent: Donald Trump address: Heavy-handed tactic to fix his own crisis. The Turnbull Daily Non-News. From his story begins:

Donald Trump has a right to try to exert greater control over the US border with Mexico but his claims today of a national security and humanitarian crisis are overblown.
