Things the media is choosing not to report

As the Christine Blasey Ford drama sucks all the air out of the room, there are some things the media is either lightly reporting or ignoring outright.  These would be huge “stop the presses” moments if it were about Republicans.  It involves blatant racism, domestic abuse, and international intrigue.  But it doesn’t look good for Democrats and we are within two months of an election.

  1. Beto O’Rourke tells a black student that we need cheap, illegal labor because no one else will pick cotton.

The media is simply ignoring this one.  At a town hall on Wednesday, Beto O’Rourke was asked by a black student about his policy towards illegal immigrants.  Specifically, the student asked him if illegal immigrants should be granted citizenship and American-paid benefits even though they came here voluntarily without following our laws.  Beto first compared illegal immigrants sneaking in to the country to black slaves being brought here against their will.

Beto went on to tell how the manager of a cotton gin he went to visit said people born here in the US won’t take jobs working for him anymore, and that’s why we need to import “immigrants” from Central America and Mexico to help our economy.  It’s the exact same argument southern Democrats used for why we needed slavery in the first place.  Even more disturbing, he is literally telling this black student that we need illegal immigrants because blacks won’t pick cotton anymore.  Not a peep from the media.  Here’s the video:

 

2. Keith Ellison abused his girlfriend

While Democrats are making the argument that Brett Kavanaugh is not qualified to serve because of an accusation that 36 years ago he as a teenager touched another teenager over her clothes, the media is not spending too much time on credible accusations of domestic violence against Keith Ellison.  Ellison’s girlfriend has now posted medical records detailing the abuse.  But rather than seeing an outcry of #metoo support, the NYT headline is simply that Ellison denies allegations of abuse.

If Christine Blasey Ford is to be believed, isn’t Karen Monahan?  There have been the typical 11th page acknowledgements, but other than that, Representative Ellison’s physical abuse of his girlfriend has been a big yawn for the media.  No one in Hollywood who has come out in blind support of Ford has asked for Ellison’s resignation either.

3. Christine Blasey Ford is 0-3 on the witness count

This is another one that has received light coverage.  Christine Blasey Ford has named other people who were at the party where she was allegedly groped by Kavanaugh.  So far three who have responded, including Ford’s lifelong friend  Leland Keyser, have said Kavanaugh wasn’t there.  None have placed him at any party ever with Ford.  Leland Keyser, who told the Washington Post she believed her friend, wrote to the Judiciary Committee that she had never been at a party or gathering with Kavanaugh.

This is devastating to Ford’s case.  A liberal believing something has little to do with reality.  When it comes to official correspondence that carries penalties if someone lies, Keyser would not back her friend’s claim.  Ford’s attorneys dismissed Keyser’s denial to the Washington Post, saying it would make sense since it happened so long ago and Ford never talked about it.  But Keyser isn’t just denying the allegations.  She’s denying ever being at a party or gathering with Kavanaugh.

4. Democrats violate the constitution and demand the FBI and DOJ defy President Trump’s order to declassify FISA documents and Comey texts

If it were a Republican investigation and a Democrat President, do you think this wouldn’t be 24/7 front page news?  Trump has ordered that the FISA applications that used the Russian dossier to gain authority to spy on his campaign should be declassified and shared with the public.  He is also ordering texts between major players, including Comey and McCabe, to be declassified.  The President has the constitutional right to order this.  In fact, the body evidence revealed already demands that these things be shared with the public.

Democrats Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer, Adam Schiff, and Mark Warner have issued a letter to the FBI and DOJ ordering them not to proceed until they have strategized with them about it.  That is unconstitutional.  Those agencies cannot disobey a Presidential order and delay this declassification.

But the more pertinent question is why?  Why would Democrats be so scared of what might be contained in those memos, interviews, FISA applications, and texts?  None of the Republicans are ordering agencies to defy the President.  Where is the media’s curiosity?

Need to Know 7/23/18 Evening Edition

As first reported yesterday, Trump is likely going to pull security clearances from several former Obama administration appointees.  The appointees, including Andrew McCabe, James Clapper, John Brennan, Susan Rice, and others have been controversial figures.  Clapper and Brennan have accused the President of treason in editorial capacities.  McCabe was fired from the FBI for improper interactions with the press.  Others on the list, like James Comey, have claimed that their security privileges are already revoked.

Trump to revoke security clearance for former intel officials

Indicted Russian operative Maria Butina was part of private meetings with Obama officials in 2015.  Butina met with Federal Reserve vice chairman Stanley Fischer, Treasury Undersecretary Nathan Sheets, and Russian Central Bank deputy governor Alexander Torshin.  Butina has been indicted as a Russian spy who sought to influence US politics and elections.

In New York they are literally letting the criminally insane out to vote for Governor Cuomo.  Cuomo has handed out pardons to thousands of former prisoners in time for the election, including 77 sexual predators who had been committed to psychiatric hospitals after serving their prison time.  The pardon gives them the right to vote, according to the New York Daily News.

The deadest horse in political history, the Trump Russia collusion story, continues to be mercilessly beaten by Democrats.  But it’s over.  Trey Gowdy gave the best summation of the death of the Trump Russia investigation on Sunday, telling Fox host Bret Baier that if there was actually any evidence found against Trump in this two year investigation, Rep. Adam Schiff would have leaked it by now.  The Democrats can pray for an obstruction charge, but the Bill Clinton precedent suggests that’s not going anywhere.  Also, anyone who Trump might have tried to obstruct, such as Comey, McCabe, or Rosenstein, has already proven themselves to be extremely biased and unreliable as a witness.  Stick a fork in this one.  Yup, another fork.

If there was evidence, Schiff would have leaked it
