“To hear the news report it, the migrant caravan is just a spontaneous uprising of women and children fleeing Honduran gangs…
“What’s lost is just how hard, hard, left the organizers of what has become this humanitarian disaster are. Even the liberation-theology types are getting concerned. The caravan agenda is a hard-left, pro-Chavista one, and drawing the fringiest leftwing groups. To its organizers on the ground…it’s a by-any-means-necessary political mission. A look at the caravan organizers and their allies shows that their real aim is to confront the U.S. The moms-and-kids are window dressing.”
Our invaders are Latin commies, pure and simple.
“This is amazing stuff, completely ignored by the mainstream media and available only in the Spanish-language press. And these people are at the heart of the caravan roiling both the U.S. and Mexico, creating a humanitarian disaster in the true Marxist tradition. My question: Why are they completely off the U.S. press radar?”
Because the U.S. press is increasingly composed of low-paid millennials who were taught in college to be sympathetic to the collective instead of the individual?

“To my knowledge, no one has claimed that Russia tampered with vote tallies. I am not aware of any plausible theory on which a foreign power could tamper with vote tallies. To say that Russia tampered with vote tallies [to get Trump elected] is as credible as asserting that the moon is made of green cheese.
“And yet, two-thirds of Democrats say it is either ‘definitely true’ (31%) or ‘probably true’ (36%) that Russia tampered with vote tallies. Women are especially gullible; 48%, across all party lines, have fallen for this fake news. Sadly, 70% of blacks have bought it hook, line and sinker. The Northeast is the country’s most ignorant region, apparently: 47% of Northeasterners have fallen for the hoax.”

Dear Diary… I not only got attacked by an intern trying to take my microphone away but my White House press pass was revoked. They said it was only suspended, but I know better/CNN correspondent Jim Acosta.
Oh, happy day! Please don’t give it back no matter what.
UPDATE: Astoundingly, a fed judge Trump appointed has ordered the temporary reinstatement of Acosta’s press pass while litigation proceeds. Once again, the Deep State extends to the judiciary.
Gab CEO Andrew Torba responds on NPR to the censorship of his site and its 800,000 users (of which I am one) by the Silicon Valley oligarchy. Here’s the full interview of 16 plus minutes which NPR is very unlikely to use in full.
He makes valid points: Gab had like 4 minutes from an ambiguous post Bowers made about “going in” until he murdered the synagogue congregants (I see no reason to call him a suspect); Bowers also had a presence on Facebook and on Twitter but they’ve not been called “a hate megaphone” of “far-right extremists” nor taken down and banned for it; Gab is working with law enforcement to help prosecute Bowers, not stalling them like the big social media platforms have done in the past.
Torba, who has a connection to Austin (according to a business profile on Bloomberg), says he’s now receiving death threats from the usual suspects. He makes another interesting point: that it’s only been since Trump won the presidency that conservatives on platforms like Twitter and Facebook have been censored, which led to the creation of Gab.

UPDATE: Gab expects to be back online by the weekend, three days from now.
“The Ricin to Mattis was not harmless. The bullets at Scalise were not harmless. The punches on Paul were not harmless. The HUNDREDS of rocks thrown at Trump supporters the last 2.5 years were not harmless. The switchblade knife on House GOP candidate Rudy Peters was not harmless.”
Republicans all. Only the Dims get harmless “bombs” and the stamps on the packages weren’t even canceled. Then they and their lapdog news media howl. October surprise, anyone?
UPDATE: “They’re trying to get noticed,’ Rush Limbaugh says. ‘The Clintons desperately need to be noticed all the time, and Obama is trying to recapture some glory, trying to show everybody he can still move the needle.'”
This column from the incomparable Ann Coulter also might be called an old-fashioned “fisking,” taking apart some very fake news engineered by CNN “reporter” Ana Cabrera.
Cabrera took a real quote from President Trump (it’s “a very scary time for young men in America” due to uncorroborated sexual assault allegations) and paraphrased it to make it racial (Trump saying “white men have a lot to fear right now”), then asked a black guest to comment on the fake news to blow it up even bigger.
Later, much later, on Twitter, she apologized for her “mistake” that wasn’t a mistake. Giving her a two-fer: doing the nasty on Trump, then apologizing as if she was contrite. Poor, honest Ana, she made a boo-boo.
“The network deliberately pushed a racism narrative,” writes Coulter, “calculated to incite racial hatred that could get someone killed…If this were an error, it would have been corrected before the first commercial break. It was not corrected because it’s not a mistake; it’s a political strategy.”
And it’s a perfect example of what President Trump calls very fake news.
The Dims liked to say that poor Christine Fraud (Doctor Christine Fraud to you plebs, though she’s not an MD) had nothing to gain by accusing Judge Kavanaugh of sexual assault. Uh, not so fast.
First of all—besides her GoFundMe of almost a million dollars, probably paid by Soros—there’s the book deal…
UPDATE: From commenter CoogsHouse713 at Instapundit: “The book deals for books that nobody buys, speaker fees, and GoFundMe accounts are modern day forms of money laundering, bribery, and corruption.”
MORE: Althouse commenter Priscilla on SNL’s “fearless comedy”: “There was potentially more actual humor to be had in parodying the 6-year old voice and bizarre child-like demeanor of the 51-year old Ford. But we must take the ‘victim’ very seriously and never doubt that she is disingenuous…” Which is why she’ll make the big bucks.
