Proof CNN Has Gone Over To The Dark Side

Reliability matters.  CNN’s viewership dropped by 15 percent according to the 2017 Nielsen ratings for primetime cable news networks.
CNN’s ratings plunge to the bottom of the barrel has staff wandering the hallways sobbing uncontrollably.
AND SCENE…
"Star Wars: The Last Jedi" opened in more than 4,100 theaters this weekend prompting the network’s mouthpiece, Brian Stelter, to post this on Twitter: 

What's That Stench? It's Fantastic.

Adam Schiff (D-CA), ranking member of the House Intelligence Committee, said today on CNN that he’s worried Republicans are trying to kill his panel’s probe into the 2016 U.S. presidential election, amid efforts to smear special counsel Robert Mueller and discredit his own investigation into last year’s race.

The committee’s investigation has gone on for about a year, with nearly five dozen witnesses interviewed across eleven open and closed hearings lasting for hours. What Schiff said really has him “concerned” is if Congress’s probes end, Republicans could exert pressure to end Mueller’s investigation, which has cost $6.7 million in taxpayer funds in its first five months.
Schiff’s meltdown on Twitter reveals the collusion narrative has crumpled. He attempted to draw a false equivalence between reports that FBI agents were outraged before the presidential election at the kid-glove treatment Granny received for her e-mail scandal and the Trump-antagonistic attitudes recently exposed among members of the Bureau's top management and Mueller's team.

Last Minute Christmas Shopping Idea For “Little Marco”

Marco Rubio is acting like a Democrat on tax reform.  He’s drawn a line in the sand saying he’s a definite “No” unless the final bill includes a further expansion of the refundable child tax credit he’s been advocating.  He’s willing to blow the whole thing up if he doesn’t get his way; exactly what a Democrat would do.
On the presidential campaign trail, Rubio tangled with Trump in starkly personal ways—at one point over a measure of their manhood. 
Could someone get this man a spine for Christmas?  He’s already got plenty of water.

Introducing The New U.S. Ambassador To Fantasy Island

Good grief!  The clown parade never seems to end.
Yesterday around mid-morning the Intertoobs went wild over a tweet from April D. Ryan who is the Washington Bureau Chief of American Urban Radio Networks and an alleged CNN Political Analyst:
Note the time of her tweet was 9:14 AM. 
At 6:30 AM today Chris Cuomo, co-host of CNN’s “New Day”, attempted the mental gymnastics required to grasp the English language appearing in President Trump’s tweet from last night, “Thank you Omarosa for your service!  I wish you continued success.”
Someone with the Twitter handle @heyaries1981 replied to Cuomo on his timeline noting, “Meh, I wouldn’t read too much into it. He’s said goodbye to other ex-employees via twitter,” which piqued his curiosity:
That second tweet went out just a hair over 24 hours after the United States Secret Service definitively discredited Ryan’s tweets.
The woman around whom this ridiculous firestorm centered was Director of Communications for the Office of Public Liaison in the Trump Administration.  Seeking to set the record straight and call out April Ryan for ginning up a controversy where none existed, Omarosa Manigault made an appearance on ABC’s Good Morning America.
In what appeared to me to be a “gotcha” moment meant to validate the stupidity of CNN’s new US Ambassador to Fantasy Island and give Cuomo’s co-host a chance to smirk, Ms. Ryan appeared on New Day. Oh yeah, it’s a pip.
The outrageous racism and demonization of a black conservative woman didn’t end there as stand-up “comedian” D. L. Hughley tweeted this (which I have screen-capped should the buffoon decide to delete it):

CNN Christmas Songs

Recently CNN had what they thought was a bombshell story of Russian collusion that blew up in their face and just yesterday claimed a “thief” sent a tweet from Anderson Cooper’s account when his assistant left his phone unattended in a gym locker.
For nearly a year now, we've seen a pattern of headline-grabbing stories about Russian "meddling" and Trump "collusion" that ends up fizzling out when the facts come in.
The longer President Trump is in office the more egregious CNN’s journalistic malpractice becomes.  Their claims they are being attacked as fake news is falling on deaf ears.
On Tuesday, December 12th, someone started the hashtag #CNNChristmasSongs on Twitter.  I thought some of them were pretty clever.

Fact-Checking A Late Night Crybaby Holding Up Squirming Baby

Unlike when Jimmy Kimmel took the stage in September of this year to use his sick child as a prop for his Obamacare sycophancy, this time the “Democracy Dies in Darkness” newspaper fact-checked his sloganeering for Democrats and Chuck Schumer in particular.
Holding up his son Billy who was born with a congenital heart disease, Kimmel railed against the GOP Monday night in a tear-filled plea for the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP).  Here was his moment highlighting the preciousness of life, the heroism of his son’s nurses and surgeons and he poisoned it with dirty, grubby politics.
It took a couple of days but The Washington Post fact-checked his schtick; they said because their readers “requested it”.
“It’s often difficult to describe Washington sausage-making in shorthand, and Kimmel fell short in several areas, appearing to pin most of the blame on Republicans.”
“CHIP always had bipartisan support. But this year, they let the money for it expire while they work on getting tax cuts for their billionaire and millionaire donors.”
— Late-night host Jimmy Kimmel, in a monologue, Dec. 11, 2017
Kimmel falsely suggests that CHIP has become a bargaining chip as part of the negotiations over the GOP tax plan. It’s actually part of the usual year-end negotiations in Congress. Few lawmakers are really against CHIP; the question is how to fund it.
“I don’t know about you, I’ve had enough of this. I don’t know what could be more disgusting than putting a tax cut that mostly goes to rich people ahead of the lives of children. Why hasn’t CHIP been funded already? If these were potato chips they were taking away from us, we would be marching on Washington with pitchforks and spears right now.” — Late-night host Jimmy Kimmel, in a monologue, Dec. 11, 2017
The WaPo article continues, “Again, Kimmel’s frame of reference is off. CHIP funding is being negotiated even as Congress is debating a tax plan. Both the House and Senate have signaled they support reauthorization of CHIP. The impasses over funding had led to some uncertainty in a handful of states, but there is no immediate crisis—and the recent stopgap funding bill provides flexibility to keep CHIP programs running in states.”
“The bottom line: CHIP is completely unrelated to the tax legislation; in fact, it won’t be and was never going to be part of the tax bill. Congress is able to work on several issues at once—and most of the outstanding issues get wrapped up just before important holidays.”
What Kimmel yearns for more than anything else is to portray Republicans as evil and uncaring.  As the Post clearly demonstrated, the late-night crybaby is simply dead wrong.  Further proof he is ignorant of the facts:  Rep. Mike McCaul (R-TX), Chairman of the House Committee on Homeland Security, introduced the Childhood Cancer Survivorship, Treatment, Access and Research Act, or Childhood Cancer STAR Act, which would improve efforts to identify and track childhood cancer incidences, improve the quality of life for childhood cancer survivors and identify opportunities to expand the research of therapeutics necessary to treat the approximately 15,700 children diagnosed with cancer in the U.S. every year.
On August 18, 2017 President Trump signed into law the RACE for Children Act (Research to Accelerate Cures and Equity for Children Act).

McCaul has become best friends with Sadie Keller who was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia in 2015 at the age of 7.

Democrat Sheila Jackson Lee Is A Blithering Idiot

Sheila Jackson Lee (D-TX) is a publicity hound and a blithering idiot. The Congresswoman shows up to events without an invitation, eats up time at caucus meetings with grandiose speeches, repeatedly flubs facts on the House floor and frequently adds superfluous amendments to other members' bills.  Her behavior is so grating it makes people want to tear their hair out.
In 2014, the Houston Chronicle did a piece on her in which the columnist noted “weird stories” of her erratic and abusive behavior in the workplace.
One job of her aides is to cull the obituaries. One told friends of taking her to five funerals in one day, and of hating to have to ask the families if they would allow her to speak.
In 2006, Jackson Lee told the World Meteorological Organization hurricane names should be more representative of the cultures they impact, including blacks. “The National Weather Service says hurricane names are derived from languages spoken in areas that border the Atlantic Ocean, where such storms occur. Yet that doesn’t explain why Gaston, Ernesto and Cindy were chosen and Antwon, Destiny and Latonya were passed over.”
Jackson Lee, whose district neighbors the Johnson Space Center, is a member of the House Committee on Science.  As such, she visited the Mars Pathfinder Operations Center in Pasadena, CA.  In a moment of profound ignorance, she asked whether the Pathfinder had photographed the American flag Neil Armstrong had planted on the surface of Mars.  Officials at the Center had to point out the flag was planted on the Moon.  She didn’t take being embarrassed too kindly.  She had her chief of staff pen a letter including the phrase: “You thought you could have fun with a black woman member of the Science Committee.”
Yesterday, as Republican Roy Moore lost to Democrat Doug Jones, the world class numbnut congratulated “Doug Moore” on his stunning upset.  People noticed her grandiose stupidity:
How do the people of Texas’s 18th Congressional District continue to tolerate this mental midget?

Alabama Senate Race: Yippee Yi-Yo-Ki-Yay!

The polls are all over the place for today’s special election in Alabama to replace Luther Strange who replaced Jeff Sessions.  This is probably going to be a nail-biter for both sides of the political aisle.
Will Alabamians ignore the unrelenting reportage of Roy Moore’s alleged pedophilia?  It’s entirely possible since The Washington Post didn’t break the story before the primary between Strange and Moore.  I think you’d have a difficult time ignoring the deliberateness of the Democrat Party’s strategy:  interfere with the electoral process by creating enough suspicion about Moore so their radical pro-abortion candidate would beat him.
The way WaPo has savaged President Trump may be the impetus needed to ignore the 38-year-old allegations against Moore and demonstrate to the liberal media voters in Alabama won’t be manipulated.
If Moore does win and further evidence emerges indicating he is simply not fit to serve, Republicans can force him out and Alabama’s Republican governor can replace him with another Republican.  And…the Democrats will have been outfoxed again when the seat is still held by a REPUBLICAN.
Anyhoo, the press breathlessly covered Moore and his wife arriving at their polling place on horseback and it reminded me of the Cartwrights on the Ponderosa Ranch.

CNN: Trump Is Pounding Diet Coke Like A Viking Poet

The New York Times published a lengthy piece recently stating President Trump drinks up to a dozen Diet Cokes a day.  The information apparently came, in part, from a book written by former Trump campaign aides Corey Lewandowski and David Bossie entitled “Let Trump Be Trump:  The Inside Story of His Rise to the Presidency.”
Today the most busted name in news, CNN, devoted an entire segment with Brooke Baldwin and Dr. Samantha Nazareth, a board certified gastroenterologist, to discuss the president’s consumption of the fizzy beverage.
Watch how Baldwin tries to “lead” her guest to stick with the narrative that drinking Diet Coke harms the body and can lead to dementia.  Bare in mind this was what CNN chose to cover instead of an attempted suicide bombing in New York City this morning.  It can’t possibly get any more ridiculous.  Oh wait, yes it can.  It’s CNN!
