Scott Adams: The Covington Kids, Kamala Harris and Fake News in General

The 48 Hour Rule
If someone makes a mistake, and atones for it in the form of a
sincere apology, you should accept the apology even if you
can’t forgive the person…and move on.
Reasons given for not accepting my apology
Attack vector on the Covington kids is now shifting
Bad behavior at the event (by the children) didn’t exist
Left claims: MAGA hats are a known racist symbol
Left now looking for bad behavior by the children in the past
Jake Tapper interview with Kristen Gillibrand
Clearly, CNN has decided Kristen won’t be the candidate
A clear pattern is developing, CNN is anointing Kamala
How candidates are selected in America (Whiteboard)
A few billionaires decide who the candidates will be
The media cements those candidates for the public
The public then has the ILLUSION of choosing candidates
“You should have researched it”…The dumbest statement

Beyond BuzzFeed: The 10 Worst, Most Embarrassing US Media Failures On The Trump/Russia Story

Buzzfeed was once notorious for traffic-generating “listicles”, but has since become an impressive outlet for deep investigative journalism under editor-in-chief Ben Smith. That outlet was prominently in the news this week thanks to its “bombshell” story about President Trump and Michael Cohen: a story that, like so many others of its kind, blew up in its face, this time when the typically mute Robert Mueller’s office took the extremely rare step to label its key claims “inaccurate.”

Report: Some Democrats Are Saying Obama Was a Bad President

A new Vanity Fair analysis refers to former president Barack Obama as a “visionary” but notes that up-and-coming Democrats are starting to frown upon his legacy.

Author T.A. Frank surmises that perhaps it isn’t the quality of his work – praising such legacy items as the Affordable Care Act, DACA, and the Paris climate deal – but rather acceptance by the American public and how it might reflect on their own political prospects.

In a relatively short period of time, President Trump has almost single-handedly dismantled Obama’s legacy. The above-noted items have all been torn apart in some manner. Others not listed have as well.

Study Reveals Three Quarters Of People Are Dissatisfied With “Undemocratic”, “Self-Interested” And “Divided” Political Parties

Research by the University of Sheffield has revealed more than three quarters of people are dissatisfied with political parties and has identified the seven main qualities people want to see in parties today...

Dissatisfaction was high across all areas, but parties were seen to perform worst when it comes to delivering promises, with 87 per cent saying parties don’t do this well. In contrast, they were seen to perform best when managing crises – with 47 per cent saying parties did this well...

Leaked: Netanyahu to be Indicted in Bezeq-Walla Affair, According to Reports

Attorney General Avichai Mandelblit has decided to file bribery charges against Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in Case 4000, the Bezeq-Walla Affair, says a senior legal official, according to Israel’s Ulpan Shlishi news program on Friday night.

According to the report, senior officials involved in advanced discussions say the decision has already been made to charge Netanyahu. Mandelblit has accepted the recommendation of the State Attorney’s Office, specifically that of the Tel-Aviv Financial and Tax District Office, to indict Netanyahu in Case 4000.

The Bezek-Walla Affair is a case in which Netanyahu allegedly received positive news coverage from website Walla!, which is owned by telecommunications giant Bezek in exchange for preferential regulatory treatment granted to the telecom giant.

Battling treacherous office chairs and aching backs, aging cops and firefighters miss years of work and collect twice the pay

When Capt. Tia Morris turned 50, after about three decades in the Los Angeles Police Department, she became eligible to retire with nearly 90% of her salary.

But like many cops and firefighters in her position, the decision to keep working was a financial no-brainer, thanks to a program that allowed her to nearly double her pay by keeping her salary while also collecting her pension.

A month after Morris entered the program, her husband, a detective, joined too. Their combined income for four years in the Deferred Retirement Option Plan was just shy of $2 million, city payroll records show.

But the city didn’t benefit much from the Morrises’ experience: They both filed claims for carpal tunnel syndrome and other cumulative ailments about halfway through the program. She spent nearly two years on disability and sick leave; he missed more than two years, according to a Times analysis of city payroll data.

Pirro to Pelosi: ‘Are You Working for Americans or Illegals … or Is It That You Don’t Give a Damn?’

During Saturday’s broadcast of Fox News Channel’s “Justice,” host Jeanine Pirro hammered House Speaker Nancy Pelosi in her show’s “Opening Monologue” segment.

Pirro suggested that Pelosi and other congressional Democrats cared more about illegal immigrants than Americans and called her a “hypocrite” and a “political operative.”

“So let me see if I understand this: An American mother shows a picture of a child murdered by an illegal, and Chuck Schumer and his gang they come out and show pictures of federal employees. Is there a moral equivalency here? Are you folks, schizo? Are you working for Americans or illegals? Or is it that you just don’t give a damn? You vacation in Hawaii. Your buddies vacation in Puerto Rico during a shutdown and you plan a jaunt to Europe while federal employees are trying to save every dollar to buy groceries. Admit it — you don’t give a damn.”

Ted Cruz Calls Out Pelosi’s SOTU Scheme

Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) says House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s State of the Union postponement tactics aren’t really about the shutdown or thwarting the border wall so much but instead is about cutting off a direct line of communication between President Donald Trump and the American people. As you’ll recall, Pelosi wrote President Trump Wednesday requesting that he delay the televised SOTU until the government is reopened, calling it a “housekeeping matter.” According to Cruz, it’s really because Pelosi is a hostage of sorts to the Democrats’ increasingly Left wing voter base, and she and her party mates are being exposed for spiteful politicking despite funding previous border security efforts.

Tlaib and Omar’s support for BDS is now a lightning rod for Republicans

Two first-term congresswomen’s support for Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) is shaking up the House. Yesterday, Republicans issued statements condemning Reps. Rashida Tlaib and Ilhan Omar for their endorsement of the non-violent campaign for human rights in Palestine. Their statements sound a lot like the hysteria about BDS from Israel’s leadership.

Curious Bedfellows: The Neocon and Progressive Alliance to Destroy Donald Trump

Ovid framed his narrative around gods, heroes and quasi-historical events but if he were around today, he would no doubt be fascinated by the many transformations of the group that has defined itself as neoconservative.The movement began in a cafeteria in City College of New York in the 1930s, where a group of radical Jewish students would meet to discuss politics and developments in Europe. Many of the founders were from the far left, communists of the Trotskyite persuasion, which meant that they believed in permanent global revolution led by a vanguard party. The transformation into conservatives of a neo-persuasion took place when they were reportedly “mugged by reality” into accepting that the standard leftist formulae were not working to transform the world rapidly enough.

The Wealth Of The 12 Richest Davos Billionaires Has Increased By $175 Billion In Ten Years

It's almost time for the annual Davos boondoggle where the world's richest and most powerful financiers, politicians, artists and celebrities fly in on their private jets while surrounding by bodyguards and sit down (before partying among ultra exclusive DJs) to discuss the world's ills (which they created) such as the omni-present "global warming" (the type which apparently ignores the carbon emissions from private jets) and which can only be solved by paying a major bank (say Goldman Sachs) billions in carbon credit commissions, not to mention social upheaval and populist anger (the type which bodyguards are so skilled at neutralizing) and where not surprisingly nationalism once again ranks as the biggest threat risk to attempts to impose a globalist world order.

In other words, it is "A Reunion For People Who Broke The World" where a hotdog back in 2015 cost 38 Swiss Francs.

'Why Can't They Take The Bus?' - Davos Locals Furious As Limos Clog Streets

We couldn't imagine a struggle that better symbolizes the burgeoning conflict between the globalist "Davos Man", who has flourished in the years since the financial crisis (largely because central banks helped transform it into a dip to buy), and regular, working people than the one highlighted this weekend by Bloomberg News in a report about the simmering anger locals feel toward the wealthy MOUs who flock to their mid-tier ski town for a few days every January to revel in the excesses of the stratified world these outsiders helped to create.

Davos locals are growing increasingly frustrated with the traffic congestion that the conferences attendees (it's expected to draw 3,000 guests this year, the largest crowd in its history) and their limos bring to the town, with the 11,000 residents wondering why they can't just take public transportation like Swiss central bankers and government ministers do?

Roger Stone: Deep State plans to remove POTUS Trump, VP Pence, to install Pelosi and Hillary in COUP

Longtime political strategist Roger Stone believes that elements of the Democrat-aligned Deep State are plotting a coup that will see POTUS Donald Trump and Vice President Mike Pence removed from office, which would then hand the presidency to No. 3 in line — Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.).

Scott Adams: My Apology for Believing @CNN About the Covington Catholic Boys Fake News

CNN continues to pump the worst kind of dangerous fake news
Covington Catholic kids vs Black Israelites and drummer
CNN reversed the victims and the perpetrators
The Black Israelites started it and were full-on racists
Then the Black Israelites said lots of bad thing about Dems
The Black Israelites were saying anti-gay things in the video
The kids pushed back against the anti-gay sentiments
The kids pushed back against Black Israelites racism
The Black Israelites then armed themselves
The drummer was looking to CAUSE trouble, not diffuse it
Drummers intent was to get in the faces of the teens
The kids didn’t back up or back down or misbehave
President Trump’s offer yesterday was to add variables
He stood fast on what he needs to secure the border, 5.7B
Including other topics (variables) is to entice Dems to talk
A word, “wall” is preventing a border solution

FLASHBACK - NBC Weaponizes for Hillary: Funnels $400 Million To Extreme-Left BuzzFeed & Vox

On one hand NBCUniversal is telling us it is serious about news objectivity, while on the other hand, and mostly under the radar, NBC is funneling an astonishing $400 million in capital into two of the most extreme left-wing news outlets in America: BuzzFeed and Vox.

One need only watch 10 minutes of MSNBC to understand that NBC News is an extremist organization in favor of open borders, partial birth abortion, the government setting CEO pay, and destroying people’s lives through the pushing of the Climate Change hoax. Unfortunately for NBC, though, the MSNBC experiment only resulted in a ratings catastrophe. To right the ship, NBC is promising that MSNBC will be moving from opinion news to straight news.

We’ll see.

ANOTHER Junk #FakeNews Report Implodes: Russian Hooker Admits She Made Up Trump-Russia Collusion So Mueller Would Spring Her from Jail

On Friday Rybka apologized to the court and to Russian tycoon Oleg Deripaska for making up a story to tell Robert Mueller and the FBI.

It was all a lie to get out of jail.

Of course, ALL of the Fake News liberal media fell for the nonsense.
Rybka’s claims made headlines on CNN last year.

CURIOUS BEDFELLOWS: THE NEOCON AND PROGRESSIVE ALLIANCE TO DESTROY DONALD TRUMP

The neoconservatives lined up behind Hillary Clinton in 2016, appalled by Donald Trump’s condemnation of their centerpiece war in Iraq and even more so by his pledge to end the wars in Asia and nation-building projects while also improving relations with the Russians. They worked actively against the Republican candidate both before he was nominated and elected and did everything they could to stop him, including libeling him as a Russian agent.

Scott Adams: Buzzfeed, Wall Negotiations, Needle Parks, More

CNN laments the Buzzfeed story falling apart
Unreliable authors working for non-credible Buzzfeed
Why did CNN breathlessly push the story till it collapsed?
Kill shot for the “immoral wall” position by Pelosi
“Negotiating with yourself” Classic negotiating error
Watch President Trump NOT make that mistake
Adding variables can get you past an impasse
At a conceptional level, open borders make sense
In the real world…open borders can be a nightmare
In a private conversation, does anyone believe in open borders?
Fact: Countries meddle in other countries elections
Mexican cartels bribe Mexican elected officials
Cartels likely already supporting the Dems
Dems must know that
Willingly or unknowingly, Dems have Cartel support

TOP OBAMA WHITE HOUSE LAWYER MADE FALSE STATEMENTS TO DOJ ABOUT MANAFORT-RELATED WORK

The former general counsel for President Obama made “false and misleading statements” to the Justice Department regarding work he did for the Ukrainian government that has come under scrutiny in the special counsel’s probe.

Greg Craig’s allegedly false statements were revealed in a settlement announced Thursday by the Justice Department. The agency announced it was settling with Craig’s former firm, Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom, which worked with former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort on behalf of Ukraine beginning in 2012.

Skadden Arps agreed to register retroactively with the Justice Department as a foreign agent of Ukraine and to pay a $4.6 million fine, the same amount that the firm was paid for its consulting work.

Fox News’ Laura Ingraham Rants About Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, ‘Minority Privilege’

Fox News host Laura Ingraham ranted about “minority privilege” as she attacked Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) for criticizing her on Twitter.

Ocasio-Cortez wrote last week that Fox News had “crossed a line beyond conservatism and into outright bigotry” with its financing of Ingraham and fellow host Tucker Carlson.

Bill Barr’s CIA Resume: Cover-Ups, Covert Operations, and Pardons

With President Trump reserving the possibility that he might pardon former aides indicted by Mueller, Barr’s handling of the Iran-Contra pardons of 1992 is revealing.

The CIA was in real danger. The trials of George and Clarridge promised to be a public relations nightmare or worse.. Sen. Pat Moynihan, chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee had introduced a bill to abolish the clandestine service. The Cold War was coming to an end and the agency’s future was in doubt.

In his oral history, Barr urged Bush to pardon the CIA men on the grounds that they were victims of the “criminalization” of foreign policy. When it came to pardoning, Barr said he “favored the broadest” use of the power.

“There were some people arguing just for Weinberger, and I said, No, in for a penny, in for a pound,” Barr recalled.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So, in essence, Barr was picked for his fealty to "towing the Party Line", and making sure that top-drawer politicos avoid any consequences for their actions?!?

I am having a Picard double-face palm, at this moment, at warp speed, upon reading this!

CIA Covert Operative William Barr Nominated by Trump for Attorney General. His Role in the Iran Contra Affair

Why was Barr chosen, given his shocking and deeply criminal/cover-up kingpin background?

Was Trump duped by Deep State enemies, who have placed another predator into his administration with the power to destroy his presidency? Or has Trump co-opted and turned Barr, in the hopes that Barr will do Trump’s bidding? Why would Barr ever turn against his own Deep State cronies?

Does Trump have a plan? With Barr in place, is Trump signaling to his enemies that “I now own the Deep State”? Or is Barr the Deep State’s ultimate and final weapon against Trump, who remains surrounded by Bush/Clinton “swamp creatures” such as National Security Adviser John Bolton, who is one of Barr’s many fellow Iran-Contra co-conspirators, Vice President Mike Pence (who is in ideal position for a coup against Trump, and remains very cozy with the Clintons, dozens of Obama appointees that remain in place, and Republican “Never Trumpers”, all of whom continue to undermine Trump.

Spy Theories and the White House: Donald Trump as Russian Agent

The level of absurdity in US politics has now reached such vertigo inducing levels as to render all manner of things permissible. Contact with the unwashed implies collaboration; discussion with the enemy implies assent. To go to a dinner party with a perceived hostile force in the context of business of diplomacy has become a child’s condemnation of misplaced loyalties. Yet everyday, thousands of engagements are made between powers and interests where nothing other than a hello is exchanged, or a pleasantry. Perhaps the more relevant question to ask here is that businessmen and women in power suggest the limits of the nation state and representation: to what extent can such figures claim to be legitimate as figure who think outside the logic of money and finance?

A RECAP OF NANCY PELOSI’S REALLY BAD WEEK

From having her vineyard taken over by a caravan of “illegals,” to getting her overseas trip canceled by President Trump, it’s safe to say that Nancy Pelosi is having a pretty bad week.

Attn Gen Nominee William Barr's Connection to Ruby Ridge, Defending FBI Snipers

After Randy Weaver, an outspoken separatist living on a mountaintop in northern Idaho, was entrapped by an undercover federal agent, U.S. marshals trespassed on Weaver’s land and killed his 14-year-old son, Sammy. The following day, FBI sniper Lon Horiuchi killed his wife, Vicki, as she was standing in the cabin doorway. Horiuchi had previously shot Randy Weaver in the back after he stepped out of the cabin. The suspects were never given a warning or a chance to surrender and had taken no action against FBI agents. Weaver survived.
