Newspapers collude to attack Trump

Gee, haven’t they (and radio and TV and some of the Internet) been doing that since 2016?. But this is a special effort called and coordinated by the Boston Globe (owned by the NYSlimes) due to Trump’s general “fake news” criticism and his “enemy of the people” charge against specific outlets.

“I hope it would educate readers to realize that an attack on the First Amendment is unacceptable,’’ said Marjorie Pritchard, deputy managing editor for the editorial page of The Boston Globe. ‘‘We are a free and independent press, it is one of the most sacred principles enshrined in the Constitution.’’

Ah, but the First Amendment doesn’t say the government can’t criticize the news media.

“Mr. Trump enjoys free speech just as his media adversaries do. Rather, the First Amendment prevents government from infringing on the rights of Americans to speak and publish. And on that score, there’s a reasonable case that Mr. Trump’s predecessor presented a greater threat to press freedom, to say nothing of Mr. Trump’s 2016 opponent. Mrs. Clinton wanted to restrict the ability of Americans to make a documentary about her. We don’t recall editorial boards joining together to announce they were not with her.”

DiFi’s Chi Spy: He wasn’t a driver

The Mediacrats, to the extent they have covered California Dim Sen. Diane Feinstein’s Chinese government spy at all, insist on calling him a driver. He was, instead, her “staff liasion to the Asian-American community.”

When he was outed by the FBI in 2014—after 20 years—although she was then head of the Senate Intelligence Committee,he was quietly allowed to retire with no retribution whatsoever. He still works in San Francisco.

Read. It. All.

UPDATE: The story has gotten “minimal play” from the Mediacrats. Well, they are Democrats after all and subject to Democrat Privilege.

MORE:  Even if he was a mere driver “It’s plenty serious,” one former top Justice Department official told me. “Focusing on his driver function alone, in Mafia families, the boss’s driver was among the most trusted men in the crew, because among other things he heard everything that was discussed in the car.”

Live! It’s Mr. Suspenders!

“Disgraced ‘Newsman Dan’ Rather’s face for some strange reason continues to appear on television screens. It’s latest appearance was on Don Lemon’s CNN basement-rated talk feast straight from his new digs at cBS.”

Where he’s the Godfather of Fake News.

Sabotaging the economy

How could that possibly work, you say. The economy is the economy, impervious to, well, just about anything except the high taxes and onerous business regulations and political uncertainty that stifled it for eight years under Bronco Bama.

Not so. “…because the condition of the economy, to a great extent,  is what you say it is or, more importantly, feel it is or can convince others that it is. It’s wide open to legerdemain. Economic success is governed almost as much by raw emotion as at is by the reality of profit and loss. What is the mood of consumers? What is the mood of big business, entrepreneurs, etc.?”

So the Progs and their Leftist buddies are taking every opportunity to undermine Trump by “sabotag[ing] the economy by jawing it down, by making it sound worse than it is” with the help of the anti-Trump fake news.

For instance a piece I read the other day claimed more people were living in their vehicles than ever before, quoting some people in California and South Dakota. Sure, California, land of high taxes and higher rents, but South Dakota?

“These cries of economic disaster will only grow more intense as we approach the mid-terms.  Every little statistical waver will [be] blown way out of… proportion. Schumer and Pelosi will say that bread lines are imminent.”

The NYT’s latest Fake News

Former Tel Aviv University historian Martin Kramer: “Nothing gives a historian greater satisfaction than correcting a persistent error. And nothing is more frustrating than the resurrection of that error even after it’s been corrected. Especially if it suddenly surfaces on the front page of the New York Times.”

Especially when it’s fake Israeli history intended to back the Pally cry against “the occupation” with a spurious quote from David Ben-Gurion.

“In the print edition, this claim about Ben-Gurion wasn’t sourced, but the online version provided a link. Where did it lead? To an article by the late Arthur Hertzberg, once a prominent American rabbi, in the New York Review of Books back in 1987. There Hertzberg claimed to have heard Ben-Gurion, right after the 1967 victory, ‘insist that all of the territories that had been captured had to be given back, very quickly, for holding on to them would distort, and might ultimately destroy, the Jewish state.’”

Kramer: “I went to the trouble of asking the Ben-Gurion Archives in Sde Boker to help locate the transcript of the talk that Hertzberg attended. They did, and there’s no evidence whatsoever that Ben-Gurion said what Hertzberg claimed he heard.”

UPDATE: The NYSlimes refuses to correct its error. Why am I not surprised.

You say Beto, I say Beta

“This is where we find our Texas Democrats today. With Betard Beta O’Rourke, the young soymigo from El Paso with a nationwide funding effort bringing sweet and skunky hippie money in from all over. This is their plan to defeat incumbent Senator Ted Cruz in the fall. And they will fail.  In the meantime, we shall point and laugh.”

Felonia loses it

“I used to worry that they [the Republicans] wanted to turn the clock back to the 1950s. Now I worry they want to turn it back to the 1850s.”

When, uh, slavery was legal. This in pursuit of overturning Judge Kavanaugh’s nomination to the Supremes. As if claiming he will harm women’s rights, make abortions illegal, and provide a collusion-indicted Trump with a get-out-of-jail-free ruling wasn’t enough.

Thus Felonia joins Chuckles Schumer in the deep end of the maniac pool. But, then, she’ll say anything to get speaking fees.
