Weather is Global Warming

No matter what the weather is. Hot, cold, temperate. Big hurricanes, no hurricanes. So while Minneapolis freezes in the dark, and we escape the frigid blast altogether, and President Trump yearns for warming to come back, the establishment media keeps hammering the message: It’s all global warming.

But, yet. with predictions Manhattan will soon be under water, big media stays near the waterfront—as if they didn’t believe their own reports.

Famous but Incompetent gets nasty

“I still can’t get over that they marshaled a tactical SWAT team to arrest a man being arrested for making false statements.
The officers involved knew he wasn’t being arrested for a violent crime.
The officers involved knew he wasn’t being arrested for treason, weapons, or any crime indicating resistance was imminent.
Nope.
The officers involved knew he was being arrested for saying something to the FBI that they thought was a lie. So, they strapped on body armor. They issued assault rifles. They moved in a tactical fashion under the cover of dark.
To arrest someone who, at best, would be convicted for lying.”

UPDATE: CNN, of course, was alerted to the pre-dawn raid and taped Roger Stone and his wife standing in the street barefoot and in their bedclothes. But, oddly, they left out the shocking footage of his wife.

Another Blumenthal Ranger

Time was when every Vietnam vet was a baby killer. Then every Vietnam vet was a hero, simply for having served over there. Neither made much sense but reflected the ambivalence in which we were held. Mostly I remember people on the street looking away when I was in uniform. They would not meet my eyes.

Then came the wannabees: the Blumenthals and other liars, who wanted the hero label and the consequent general sympathy. And finally some vets got together and began policing these scumbags under the rubric of Stolen Valor.

Comes the latest in their ranks: Nathan Phillips, the aging old American Indian who insolently played the drum in the Catholic kids’ face and got raised to hero status by the Leftist media who wanted the kid strung up because he wore a Trump hat. Lynched, in other words.

Thanks to another Blumenthall Ranger.

UPDATE:  Time for Phillips to lawyer up.

Bevo’s little ruckus

Well he is bigger than Georgia’s little mutt. And he does have long pointy horns.

But otherwise Bevo was corralled by the wranglers who travel with him and no one was hurt in the little ruckus prior to the Texas beat down. Not even the mutt who the fake news contended was “almost gored.” Pretty far from almost, actually.

UPDATE:  A photographer for the daily claims he was “scratched.”

Der Faker Spiegel

How could the fact-checkers have missed Der Spiegel’s fake news? About a small town in Minnesota with the stereotypical name of Fergus Falls?

Easy, when fake news that fits prejudices is what editors desire. Many a time they’ll come out of a news meeting with their bosses and say to a reporter: “This is the story I want.”

And if you’re already a star, because you invariably find the story they want, nobody’s going to nitpick you. Ain’t that right Claas Relotius?

Until Fergus Falls, the little, Trump-supporting (62.4 percent in 2016) Minnesota town you faked news about (with a phony, pistol-toting city administrator who’d supposedly never been laid), fights back.

In the pre-Internet days, Fergus Falls would never see a German news story. Them days are long gone.

UPDATE:  Add Theft to the misdeeds of Relotius:  “On Saturday night, the magazine announced in one of the many articles documenting Mr. Relotius’s misdeeds that the editors would be filing a criminal complaint against him after it emerged that he had set up a private donation drive ostensibly to help two Syrian orphans that he had profiled. According to Der Spiegel, only one of the two orphans exists, and the aid money went to the reporter’s private bank account.”
