“I assume all of our national elections are rigged and always have been. There’s no other explanation for why both parties resist making the states they control rig-proof.” —cartoonist Scott Adams on Twatter.
UPDATE: Historically, the Dims are the cheaters. And perhaps Nov. 8’s missing red wave is evidence of some of that. As if people are comfortable with the Dim high inflation and gas prices. Well, I guess, they could be. Not.
Cartoonist Scott Adams, creator of Dilbert:
“Historians: Objectively speaking, is Biden the most prolific liar the Democrats have ever nominated to represent their party? That is a serious question. I think he’s setting records.”
Well, he repeats the “fine people” hoax over and over again.
UPDATE: Adams: “Biden’s spreading of the Fine People Hoax creates a real health risk for Trump supporters because his supporters believe it to be true. Twitter could protect the public by labeling tweets with that hoax as false. @jack”
Asking censor Twitter for a real, public service? Good luck with that.
“I’ve been publicly debunking the ‘fine people’ hoax since 2017. The press created the hoax by consistently and intentionally omitting the second half of President Trump’s comments about Charlottesville.”
Figures. You cannot trust the news media these days, especially Mediacrats.

UPDATE: Pat Condell on Gab: “We are witnessing the suicide of journalism.”
Scott Adams loved Trump’s “very stable genius” Tweet and so does Jim Treacher, who opines:
“Trump’s behavior is beneath the dignity of the office, but maybe that’s not such a bad thing. Maybe the office shouldn’t have been so dignified for all these centuries. Maybe we’ve exalted the presidency too highly. Maybe this Trump/media knife-fight is a good thing, in the long run.”
Looks that way to me. The media needs taking down. So if Trump is undignified, so what?
Scott Adams has a good idea for replacing the White House press briefings, which have only turned into a sneer fest of gotcha games fueling fake news.
Take it to the Internet, he says, with written questions and answers, supplemented by occasional video clips, and let the public respond to the questions and answers, though some sort of refereeing and censorship would be necessary there.
I like this author of Dilbert, which is a funny strip, and I’ll probably get around to reading his anti-self help book as well.

I liked this idea when Trump first raised it during his campaign. I still like it despite the turmoil his executive order closing the door to refugees apparently has created at some airports here and elsewhere. It was bound to cause problems. The only way to avoid them would be to continue the refugee influx.
Which I never quite understood to begin with. I recall the Vietnamese refugee situation in the 1970s and early 80s when National Guard bases in Arkansas and Pennsylvania were used to house them until sponsors could be found for each family and the guarantee of a job. But that was a different age it seems.
Barry Hussein seems to have been dumping them into small American towns, particularly in the midwest, without much if any planning. Of course he wouldn’t have sought to bother the coastal cities, where most of his party’s votes come from. He was by far the most partisan president in a generation.
Just why we are supposed to take these people, most of them Middle Eastern Muslims, has never been clear to me. Because of the fighting in Iraq and Syria? Barry’s policies created the refugee problems in both those places. Perhaps that’s why he felt the need to take them. But that’s his problem. It shouldn’t be ours.

UPDATE: Dilbert creator and Trump supporter Scott Adams on Trump’s strategy. I just hope that in negotiating back to the middle we don’t wind up with more refugees. Send ’em to Europe. Let the Germs be overwhelmed. They haven’t atoned near enough for the Holocaust. Give it another thousand years.
One of the coolest, most loyal celebrity supporters of President-Elect Trump is Scott Adams, creator-cartoonist of the Dilbert series. Here’s his take on what Trump is up to now:
“Trump is attacking the job like a seasoned CEO, not like a politician. He knows that his entire four-year term will be judged by what happens before it even starts. What he does today will determine how much support and political capital he has for his entire term.
“So what does a Master Persuader do when he needs to create a good first impression to last for years? He looks around for any opportunity that is visible, memorable, newsworthy, true to his brand, and easy to change. Enter Ford. Enter Carrier.”
I only remember one incoming new executive editor who followed this practice in my 35 years in the news biz and he soon tired of it and went back to the old way of doing business. It became what I called the “Great Leap In Place.” The whole newsroom enjoyed the rarified air of change for about a month before coming back down to the old reality. But that was the hypocritical news biz which is now in financial disarray, both because of Internet competition and it’s sold-out-to-the-Democrats misdealing with, yep, the new ceo Trump.
