After Losing Credibility and Readers, NYT & WAPO Editors Say They Owe Trump Supporters Their Respect

Image via Middle Finger News Service Archives

Dean Baquet and Marty Baron, executive editors of the NYT and Washington Post respectively, joined NBC’s resident Sunday morning soft skull, Chuck Todd, this weekend to talk about how the Trump administration has waged war on the media's sometime unsourced and fact free-based reporting, and what news outlets should do to push back.  When asked about why people support Trump despite Todd accusations of false allegations against the media, both Baquet and Baron agreed that both of their papers have to do a better job of covering Trump supporters.
"I don’t want to be dismissive of people that support our president. They’re owed our respect they certainly have mine. They feel the so-called elites in Washington have not paid attention to them, that they don’t understand their lives…They feel that the president is actually listening to them and addressing their concerns and so they tend to believe him."
Baquet said he agreed with Baron.
“We have to do a better job understanding why some people support Donald Trump. "I think we cannot dismiss everybody whose supported Donald Trump and everybody and we just cannot dismiss them. First off, that’s not journalistically moral, it’s journalistically moral to reach out, understand the world and to be read that’s our job."
It seems a bit late in coming to me, if not downright disingenuous. Now that they have realized they may have just reelected DJT with their leftist propaganda that encouraged hate and cultivated the emotional infancy upon which the left is wholly reliant they see the light?? What changed? Why respect us now after they have dragged us through the mud, dehumanized us, insulted us, threatened us....failing to call out the violence of angry Lefties that are beating anyone with a RedHat.

Enough with the idiotic pretense. You're leftist propagandists. Nothing more. What's worse than a bunch of the disingenuous Hamptons/Martha’s Vineyard/DC/NYC set opining about how to “communicate” with Americans outside their bubble that hold different morals and standards from themselves.

Greta Threatens to Hold Her Breath Until Evil World Leaders Capitulate To Her Demands


MFNS - Climate activist Greta Thunberg apologized after saying that world leaders who don't act on climate change should be put "against the wall." The sixteen year old provocative pig tailed propaganda purveyor who has been striking against climate change by skipping school claimed on Saturday that the Swedish to English translation incorrectly implied she thought politicians should be killed. It was reported she said we must hold our leaders accountable and unfortunately said 'put them against the wall'. 

That’s Swenglish: “att ställa någon mot väggen” (to put someone against the wall) means to hold someone accountable," she said. "That’s what happens when you improvise speeches in a second language."

Greta went on to correct the record and say what she meant was "I will hold my breath until you evil rat bastards capitulate to my demands. Failure to do so will result in my demise as well as mother Earth and you will burn in HELL! Understand!!??"

Greta took no questions as she then excused herself to rush to meet her reservations for a first class, climate controlled private compartment on mass transit powered by fossil fuel produced electricity and continue her 'How Dare You' tour.

Australian Broadcaster's Epic Take Down of Spoiled Climate Change Protesters

Give them a bed roll, a little beef jerky and a canteen of water and drop them in the middle of nowhere for a week. Tell them this is what your green new deal will get you so you might as well practice staying alive. I don’t care what Mrs Hucklebutt told you in science, this is the facts kid. Oh, those cell phones, you won’t be needing them in the future.

10 Down: Sharing of a Moral Viewpoint to Gain Social Approval

Poor self proclaimed 'Greatest Crossword Solver in the Universe', Rex Parker, seemed ready to bust open an artery railing against Saturday's New York Times Crossword which featured a 15-letter expression that we all have come to know all to well:
This puzzle is so on-brand. I mean, this is exactly the kind of term I'd expect to find in a puzzle that just this week was reminding us all of the glory of Confederate monuments. That's a term used predominantly by those who are real mad that they can't be as openly racist and homophobic as they used to be in the good ol' days. People who use that term also use terms like "P.C." and "SJW" [and the word that's in the puzzle at 41D]. Super-popular term with right-wing "thought" "leaders." Aggrieved white men love the term. And it's rich coming from an editor who has struggled to keep racism / sexism / classism out of his puzzles. I say "struggled," but that implies he cares or is trying, so maybe not. 
Anyway, you can dodge criticism of your terrible behavior by calling the criticism [SPOILER DELETED], but your behavior won't be any less terrible. I'm not [a variation on the spoiler] for pointing this out. Just a sentient person with a capacity for empathy.
The expression is: "virtue signaling." or the substitution of an appearance of virtue for real virtuous acts. I kinda dislike the expression myself, but for those of you who like it, I suspect you'll like it even more knowing how much it bugs the people you enjoy seeing it used against.

In order to "prove" that you are truly victoriously correct in your adherence to the tenets of the SJW religion, people need to ostentatiously demonstrate their fidelity. It's about shunning and fear of being shunned. It's about people bowing to a regime of self-righteous intolerance toward others by indicating that they are not one of those who are not to be tolerated. The virtue signal is an act of cowardice.

When She Goes Down, the Left Will freak Out in a Festival of Freaking Outness Unparalleled in American History

Excerpts From Kurt Schlichter@Townhall 
Progressives’ ghoulish glee over the death of an old man turned into barely constrained panic when, later that day, it was revealed that their heroine Ruth Bader Ginsberg was just treated for pancreatic cancer yet again. Their disgraceful joy at David Koch’s passing was yet another reminder of the harsh truth that leftists want you dead or enslaved. Koch’s sin was that he disagreed with liberals (though, in important ways, also with conservatives). For that, these cretins danced around like idiots celebrating his succumbing. And they’ll celebrate when you die too. Always believe people who tell you they hate you and want you dead.
RBG’s latest successful MMA bout with the Grim Reaper is a reminder that we conservatives need to gird our loins for what’s coming when she finally leaves the Supreme Court for good. But our anticipatory loin girding is merely prudent preparation. 
We conservatives don’t want people to die simply because they have different political beliefs.  But she’s very old and she’s very sick and facing that reality is not the same as high-fiving it.   
Not wanting her to die a horrible death is not to sugarcoat the damage she has done with her utterly upside-down vision of our founding document, but to simply reaffirm a point that never should have been an issue but is an issue because of the shameful behavior of liberals like we saw with Koch.
Her constitutional jurisprudence consists of disregarding what she dislikes that’s in the Bill of Rights and making up stuff that’s not in it but that she feels – not thinks, feels – should be in it. 
She’s a terrible justice and conservatives would love to see her step down. But our side expressed no delight in her latest suffering comparable to the giddy revelry that greeted Koch’s kicking the bucket. We’re not monsters, though how long that remains true is up in the air. When you establish New Rules they tend to come back and bite you on the Schumer. 
The Democrats are already prepping the battlespace with this cheesy narrative.
The last time Democrats failed to get their way they tore the country apart. And when this all goes down, the left will freak out in a festival of freaking outness unparalleled in American history. 
The Dem candidates will go nuts. Big Chief Warren will be on the warpath, Bernie will call for revolution, Harris will say whatever she thinks is useful, Biden will start talking about how JFK visited him in the White House, and Beto will continue to be a furry. 
We’ll get lots of the “Orange man bad, orange man not nominate a judge because he bad” babble from the libs and their gimp media. Maddow will cry, Don Lemon will pound an umbrella drink and Tater Stelter will sweat profusely as he reads off the teleprompter about how Trump is literally Hitler. 
The Fredocons will weigh in with their patented brand of sissy submission to their elite tops. We’ll be informed how taking back the Supreme Court like the geebos of Conservative, Inc., promised for three decades is actually not who we are and how we’re better than that. -  Read More

Fear Not Baltimore, Al Sharpton is on the Way!

Like Superman spotting the Bat Signal in the night sky, Al Sharpton is rushing to Baltimore to help heal the hurt done by Trump by…I guess, being there?? I don’t know.

By now all y'all have surely heard of the sh*t storm over DJT's perceived insult of Elijah 'Bullett Head" Cummings (D-MD) and the top 10 rat-infested city he represents. No one is sure why the left is making the rat infestation issue a racial one, especially when Baltimore’s leaders admit that it’s a problem themselves, and there was even a film made about the problem. But the show must go on. Like rats, democrats came out of the woodwork to label the President a racist.

Money says Rev. Al will stand on a soapbox, gather people behind him, and make it seem like he’s giving a speech to a large crowd about how racism has no place in America and orange man bad. Yes, duty called and Sharpton answered. He hopped on a plane as soon as he heard about it.

Upon his arrival in the Capitol City, he tweeted, “Arrived in DC from Atlanta, headed to Baltimore. Long day, but can’t stop.” Baltimore residents must have heaved a collective sigh of relief. “Oh, thank God. Reverend Sharpton is on his way.” And I'm sure he hopes he's more welcome than last time he brought his roadshow to Charm City. 

Here's a sample of the responses to the news of Sharpton’s arrival via Twitchy:
  • Hasn’t Baltimore been through enough suffering this week?
  • @TheRevAl Yes, that should help. Get the race hustlers in there fast.
  • You need a race baiter? Call the master baiter, he’ll do the job.
  • So much pandering to do, so little time.
  • Baltimore just can’t catch a break.
  • Maybe stop by the IRS and put a check through the mail slot.
The President weighed in himself on Rev. Al's showboating stunt on the tweeter:
"I have known Al for 25 years. Went to fights with him & Don King, always got along well. He “loved Trump!” He would ask me for favors often. Al is a con man, a troublemaker, always looking for a score. Just doing his thing. Must have intimidated Comcast/NBC. Hates Whites & Cops!"
"Al Sharpton would always ask me to go to his events. He would say, "it’s a personal favor to me". He came to my office in T.T. during the presidential campaign to apologize for the way he was talking about me. Just a conman at work!"

Texas Governor Saves Chicken Breast From Gay Hordes

Religious Freedom and Free Speech are of the most important founding principles of this nation and are protected under the First Amendment.  But as we all know, the entire first amendment is toxic to the left and in this case deemed hateful and dangerous to the sexual deviants of the State of Texas.

But last week, Texas Gov. Greg Abbott in a bold move to protect religious liberty from gay bigots, publicly signed into law Senate Bill 1978, nicknamed the "Save Chick-fil-A" bill, that prohibits all government entities in Texas from taking "adverse actions" against any company or individual because of religious beliefs.

The bill came about after the San Antonio City Council, under pressure from gay mafia types, decided last March against letting the Chicken franchise open a location in the city's airport. San Antonio City Council member Roberto Treviño said that granting a spot to the restaurant would send the wrong message to travelers arriving in San Antonio:
"The inclusion of Chick-fil-A as a national brand tenant is something that I cannot support [...] The heart of the LGBTQ community is in District 1, and the community has come together to voice its disapproval of this proposal because it includes a company with a legacy of anti-LGBTQ behavior."
By anti-LGBTQ behavior he's referring to are donations to dangerous hate-filled religious institutions like the Salvation Army and the Fellowship of Christian Athletes.

Well tough nuggets Treviño. You can gay all over Austin, but you don't own Texas yet!

Abbott used his signing ceremony to promote the brand, because that pisses off the queers. Surrounded by staffers and legislators holding Chick-fil-A drinks, and with a sandwich box on his desk, Abbott proclaimed Texas safe for hatin' on them gays:
"Today I signed the @ChickfilA law in Texas. And, had a great lunch. No business should be discriminated against simply because its owners gave to a church or to the Salvation Army or to any other religious organization.:
Local Catholic Archbishop Gustavo García-Siller said in a statement:
“Many people admire the company because they do close on Sundays, saying corporately they take that stance in order to provide their employees a day to rest with their families and worship if they choose,” 
“… Let the marketplace decide, and consumers will select which businesses to support – or not support – with their dollars, as they always do.”
Comments from the left over the weekend were predictably as childish & ignorant as always when they lose. Here's  just a sample...

Abbott probably doesn't realize how trivial he's being in his attempt to molest the LGBTQ community.

*Not only is Abbott a homophobe, he's also just plain rude. After the signing he wouldn't even stand up to shake hands with the other bigots.

I've heard rumors he won't stand for the national anthem or the Pledge of Allegiance, either. Pass it on.

So you took the time and energy and expense to pass a law that says, "Neener neener, you do TOO have to let a greasy, disgusting fried chicken restaurant that hates gay people be in your airports!!!" and you are proud of that and don't realize how fucking stupid that makes you look?

Thankfully there's nothing in the federal constitution that anyone could reasonably interpret as saying that Christians have special privilege in the US, or the religious right would be jumping all over that.

There's also nothing in the federal constitution that anyone could reasonably interpret as saying  you get special rights, protections and privileges for defining yourself by who or what you have sex with either. But here we are....

Basement Dwelling Fascist Dictate Their Own Free Speech Rules to The Media

To suggest at this point that terms like oblivious, contradictory, or hypocritical can be applied to the domestic terrorist group Antifa would require using another term — redundant. The group of queers, punks and outcast, along with their violent cop hating black allies all claiming it's doing the noble work of beating back the Nazi scourge in this country has been consistently the source of the very acts and behavior it says it has been charged with defeating.

Today in Washington D.C. has been no different. The reason for the gathering is to serve as a counter-protest to an organized free speech rally. “They want to use this opportunity to weaponize free speech!” Nothing better to see than groups opposing something and displaying a functional ignorance of the issue over which they are upset, saying something akin to “We don’t like how they use free speech!” bears some similarity to Orwellian language.

Better still is that in the areas where Antifa members have been permitted to organize they are distributing flyers with listed rules they want to enforce on anyone from the media. Soak that in: at a rally where people are calling for free speech the group that pledges to combat oppressive forces is dictating what the press will be forbidden from doing.

Image via Julio Rosas Tweeter

They want to forbid any members of the media who will not agree to their terms from entering the area where they are organized. A cute stipulation, considering they had to obtain a permit in order to congregate on what is public property.  

The third entry is especially precious. They imply that anything filmed against their will can be used in court, because they worry something incriminating could be recorded and will strive to obtain that footage through subpoena.

How does anyone not laugh at a group that calls itself “Anti Fascist” while it attempts to employ stridently fascistic techniques? Today they are marching in the streets of D.C., claiming the streets belong to them, and they create vandalism in their wake. Attempting to silence the media during a free speech rally only deepens the humor these thugs generate in their attempt at being taken seriously.

Yes, Everything You Know Is Wrong.

 Social media, and the internet have helped to foster a cult of ignorance. 

We are witnessing an incredible accelerating wave of anti-rationalism and emotion over reason in public debate, and blurring of lines among fact and opinion and lies. Today, everyone knows everything. Today, it is absolutely true that all voices, even the most ridiculous are demanding to not only be heard but to be taken seriously, to be given equal seriousness to every other voice, regardless of the disparity in educational achievement. And attempts to verify or qualify the credibility of a person or group of people claiming to know things, are dismissed as hate-speech and/or fascism.

Tom Nichols, author of 'The Death of Expertise' has this to say:
"the increasingly democratic dissemination of information, rather than producing an educated public, has instead created an army of ill-informed and angry citizens who denounce intellectual achievement."
We're seeing this everywhere. On college campuses, in political campaigns, in debates on cable news masquerading as journalism, where twenty-something “Experts” pontificate about subjects they know little about.  And it’s not only the death of expertise, as explained by Nichols, it is also the death of reasoned debate, and, ironically, it is the death of tolerance.

We are told we only have 12 years left until the world ends from climate change…if you disagree you are a climate denier.  We need to break our addiction to fossil fuels or our coastal cities will end up under water…if you disagree you are anti-science.  

If you oppose abortion you hate women and obviously want to rule over them....If you oppose higher taxes you’re anti-government and want potholes, dirty air, and anarchy....If you support a secure border you’re not only xenophobic, you hate brown people.....If you are against Socialism you know nothing about Sweden and of course, you hate poor people… If you support Capitalism, you’re obviously against the environment and hate poor people.…

If you wear a “Make America Great Again” hat, you hate blacks, women, Mexican, gays and you want to bring back Jim Crow, back-alley abortions, and slavery….If you support DJT you are a sexist, bigot and a fascist who hates democracy and the rule of law… If you oppose gender-neutral bathrooms, you clearly hate transgender people…etc, etc,etc.

Remember, everything is right until it’s wrong. Believe me. You can take it to the bank......

“Make the enemy live up to its own book of rules.”

Demosaurus Hypocriticus - (Bozo Sapien)

I'm shocked, shocked I tell you, that democrats and the ivory tower media are making such a fuss about DJT's proposal to send illegal immigrants to sanctuary cities. This the liberals and media should be applauding! Sanctuary cities actively invite illegals to come there for safety, and all the president proposes is sending those cities more of what they said they were willing to take, and he's even throwing in free shipping. After all, Sanctuary city leaders, and apparently indirectly city voters, have been willing to provide the millions of dollars in tax resources to welcome them the past two years. 

Sanctuary cities are indeed the most humane option for the million or so illegals that arrive each year, and their mayors should specifically request receiving illegals for humanitarian reasons and even compete for illegals. The inhuman alternative is releasing illegals to areas unprepared to suddenly handle tens to hundreds of thousands of needy people, which would be inhumane because they would get far less care, less housing, less food, and less medical care than the sanctuary cities. If one illegal is good for a sanctuary city................

What Trump has brilliantly done is applied the fourth of Saul Alinsky’s “Rules for Radicals: “Make the enemy live up to its own book of rules.”

The holier-than-thou media and democrat politicans have been lecturing the public for years how illegals are the ideal citizen and no walls or other efforts should be made to stop or limit their crossing into the United States. Yet when the President offers to send them more illegals, they object. These Mayors and governors are currently violating federal law by harboring illegal immigrants and refusing, at the cost of the lives and property of their legal citizens, to report their presence to the federal government.

So why do they object now??  Well, let's suppose the mayor of Oakland or San Francisco opened their doors and welcomed 100,000 illegals a year. Their progressive citizens might initially rejoice and embrace their new residents. But reality would sink in before very long, with massive hikes in taxes, crime, disease and homelessness and all, things that are already apparent in some places.  Residents would eventually revolt. Or maybe the liberals love illegals but just don’t want “them” in THEIR neighborhood (lookin' at you Malibu Babs) which makes them the greatest hypocrites of all time and deserve all possible ridicule and scorn they get from law abiding American people.

Confusion and Stupefaction on Their Pale Frightened Faces When CNN Hires One of "Those People"

Sarah Isgur - One of "Those People"

CNN Staffers 'Demoralized' as Network Hires Conservative 
to Head 2020 Campaign Coverage

CNN has confirmed that they have hired former Jeff Sessions spokeswoman and Republican political adviser Sarah Isgur to lead the network's coverage of the 2020 Presidential Campaign. (insert sounds of exploding heads here)

CNN staffers did not take the news well. "Extremely demoralizing," "confused," "very bizarre" were some of the words used by CNN staffers who spoke with The Daily Beast about the hire. Outside of CNN, NYU Professor Jay Rosen asked if, "There weren't any journalists available." CNN defended the move to network anchor Brian Stelter, who reported that executives have defended their decision by pointing to precedents such as George Stephanopoulos (who was coincidentally was reported to have signed a new four year, at $15-17 million per year deal with ABC on the same day the Isgur story broke), Nicolle Wallace, Dana Perino, and Tim Russert.

Left-wing commentators denounced the move. The Daily Beast condemned her Twitter account, which she has only tweeted from once since June 2017, and for including,"fact-free invectives against liberals and repeatedly rails against the 'abortion industry."' The Daily Beast also attacked her for once approving of the Washington Free Beacon referring to her new employer as the "Clinton News Network". Former Obama National Security spokesman and current co-host of Pod Save America Tommy Vietor, who tweeted that the move was "absolutely insane," demanded: "Why on earth would you hire a right-wing hack to oversee political coverage in 2020? You just gave every Democrat in the country a reason to doubt your objectivity."

In addition to working at the Department of Justice during Sessions' tenure, Isgur has also worked for Ted Cruz and Mitt Romney, while also serving as the deputy campaign manager for Carly Fiorina in 2016. - READ MORE

Chuck Schumer: "Illegal immigration is wrong"

The Internet is Forever, Chuck....
There’s no doubt that Democrats will eventually cave on building Trump’s wall. The only question is when it’ll happen. Democrats have already admitted that what’s in effect isn’t working. They can’t hide the fact that they’ve voted for border wall funding previously. In fact, rather prominent Democrats have voted for a border wall, including Barky Obama, Hillary Clinton, Chuck Schumer, Dick Durbin and Dianne Feinstein. That same quintet voted to spend much more than the $5.7B. that DJT is asking for right now. DJT should tweet this info everyday!

Triggered by the 'M' Word

Rand Paul is warning that there will likely be assassinations in the future, thanks to political actors (and I assume he includes our dreadful media in that) has turned up the rhetoric to 15. That's what the media claimed during the "Climate of Hate" days, right? So if they believed that then, they must also believe it now. Or do they just not care, because they think the likely trigger-pullers will be their leftwing allies taking care of some turbulent priests. Minnesota Educator Placed on Leave Over 'Kill Kavanaugh' Tweet.

But the lovely Brooke Baldwin of CNN, who suffers from acute public mascara overdoses, will hear none of this. She won't even acknowledge that a mob of angry leftists chasing Ted Cruz and his family out of a restaurant (a mob which presumably wanted to shout some "commonsense solutions" to them)  was actually a mob at all. Not only that, she's triggered by none other than a fellow traveler, a writer from the leftist  'Daily Beast', and repeatedly denies that a mob was in fact a mob.

As you can see, Brooke Baldwin is now aging quite well out of her role as just another Bubblegum Blonde Teleprompter News Reader.

It's significant that the leftwing media continues encouraging violence at the same time their former presidential candidate declares the end of civic peace, at least until Democrats take back power, of course. I keep saying this but now that the leftist media has expressly endorsed the tactic of nonstop public harassment of public political figures, such as the Democrats' PR arm the Media, it is only a matter of time before these same threatening, likely-to-lead to violence tactics are visited upon them.
At a time when Republicans are being shot, stabbed, doxxed, beaten, mailed powder, run out of restaurants, and sent death threats, Hillary Clinton urges Democrats to be even more uncivil. What an irresponsible statement. Every Democrat should denounce. - U.S. Senator Bill Cassidy, M.D (R- LA) 
Anyone who turned on their TV this last month saw a mob screaming at lawmakers, trying to prevent hearings from happening, storming barricades, yelling at law enforcement, and trying to bang down the doors of the Supreme. - U.S. Senator Orrin Hatch (R-Utah)
When Brooke Baldwin can never eat in public in peace, she'll start asking Republicans to white knight for her and condemn the tactic. And I'm sure some cucks will be eager to take a CNN's thirty pieces of silver to do so -- cucks'll sell their mother's virtue for airfare and a per diem.

It's No Longer About The Truth

NKT - The New Yorker’s Jane Mayer appeared on CBS’s “This Morning” on Monday to discuss her reporting regarding Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh exposing himself to Deborah Ramirez while a freshman at Yale and admitted that corroborating sources to the incident did not actually witness the event. 

On Sunday, the New Yorker reported:
“Ramirez said that, when both she and Kavanaugh were freshmen at Yale, she was invited by a friend on the women’s soccer team to a dorm-room party. She recalled that the party took place in a suite at Lawrance Hall, in the part of Yale known as Old Campus, and that a small group of students decided to play a drinking game together. “We were sitting in a circle,” she said. “People would pick who drank.” Ramirez was chosen repeatedly, she said, and quickly became inebriated. At one point, she said, a male student pointed a gag plastic penis in her direction. Later, she said, she was on the floor, foggy and slurring her words, as that male student and another stood nearby. (Ramirez identified the two male onlookers, but, at her request, The New Yorker is not naming them.)” 
CBS News’ John Dickerson asked Mayer about where the corroborating witness to Ramirez’s allegations came from and where he got the information about the alleged incident from. “He remembers it from from he was in the same dorm, same little building on Yale’s old campus,” Mayer said. 

“But did he see it?” Dickerson asked Mayer.

“No, as I’ve said, he heard it from someone that was there,” Mayer responded. Mayer said that her source was sure of his memory of the event, but CBS News’ Norah O’Donnell followed up, “But, as you admit, he was not at the party.”

Sit Down, Spartacus.

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer has no meaningful cards left to play, so we get embarrassing verbose grandstanding and melodramatic cosplay by junior Senators.  This situation is of the making by the American left. They developed the doctrine, which magnified the political importance of the judiciary. They politicized and personalized the Court and the appointment process. They made ideology the primary qualification for a judicial appointment. They shattered institutional norms and precedents in pursuit of victory.

Republicans are now playing by the Left’s rules and winning. What we are seeing in Kavanuagh’s confirmation hearings is the visual manifestation of the Left’s impotence, for which they have only themselves to blame.

Protesters Paid In Cash To Disrupt Brett Kavanaugh Hearing

Author and commentator Adam W. Schindler interviews three Texas doctors who traveled to Washington D.C. to attend the confirmation hearings for Judge Brett Kavanaugh. While waiting on line, they say they witnessed protesters being paid in cash to cause trouble in the hearing and in the public line to get in, Tuesday on Capitol Hill. - See Video 

CBS News’ Nancy Cordes confirmed that Sen. Schumer held a conference call with Judiciary Committee democrats over the Labor Day weekend to discuss the strategy of grandstanding they deployed in a coordinated manner, interrupting the start of the hearing to call,one after the other, for a delay in the proceedings while protesters disrupted the proceedings from the back of the room.

Dems Likely to Go Full Clouseau in Event They Take Midterms

The Senate is more than likely to remain in safe hands of Republicans, the House, so much.  If the House was to fall to the Dems you can bet they will go full Inspector Clouseau and turn the works of their congressional committees into a three ring investigative circus, cheered on by their vengeful Publicity Department in the News Media. No doubt it will come, and according to Jonathan Swan of Axios, Congressional Republicans are getting ready for hell:
"Axios has obtained a spreadsheet that's circulated through Republican circles on and off Capitol Hill — including at least one leadership office — that meticulously previews the investigations Democrats will likely launch if they flip the House. Publicly, House Republicans are putting on a brave face about the midterms. But privately, they are scrambling to prepare for the worst."

"The spreadsheet includes requests for administration officials to be grilled by committee staff, requests for hearings to obtain sworn testimony, efforts to seize communications about controversial policies and personnel decisions, and subpoena threats. It catalogs more than 100 formal requests from House Democrats this Congress, spanning nearly every committee."

  • President Trump’s tax returns Trump family businesses — and whether they comply with the Constitution's emoluments clause, including the Chinese trademark grant to the Trump Organization
  • Trump's dealings with Russia, including the president's preparation for his meeting with Vladimir Putin
  • The payment to Stephanie Clifford — a.k.a. Stormy Daniels
  • James Comey's firing
  • Trump's firing of U.S. attorneys
  • Trump's proposed transgender ban for the military
  • Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin's business dealings
  • White House staff's personal email use
  • Cabinet secretary travel, office expenses, and other misused perks
  • Discussion of classified information at Mar-a-Lago
  • Jared Kushner's ethics law compliance
  • Dismissal of members of the EPA board of scientific counselors
  • The travel ban Family separation policy
  • Hurricane response in Puerto Rico
  • Election security and hacking attempts 
  • White House security clearances

"These demands would turn the Trump White House into a 24/7 legal defense operation. Thanks to their control of Congress, Republicans have blocked most of the Democrats’ investigative requests. But if the House flips, the GOP loses its power to stymie. Lawyers close to the White House tell me the Trump administration is nowhere near prepared for the investigatory onslaught that awaits them, and they consider it among the greatest threats to his presidency."

Dem's Exemplary Asshat Extraordinaire Declares DJT Has No Authority To Appoint Supremes

We figured we’ve seen just about every bit of nonsense the Dem's could muster from their tattered playbook, but then Chuck Schumer jumps out of the trees with more weird liberal political science. That constitutional stuff is hard.  So here is today’s news from the slowly desiccating senior brain trust of the opposition - Donald Trump no longer has the constitutional authority to nominate Justices to the Supreme Court.
CFP - The Senate Minority Leader on Tuesday attempted a double bank shot of claiming that Brett Kavanaugh shouldn’t be confirmed for the Supreme Court because Michael Cohen copped a guilty plea. Schumer chose the position he’s in and he can squirm in it every day as far as I’m concerned. Schumer is under intense pressure from the increasingly unhinged liberal base to do everything he can to stop Brett Kavanaugh from being confirmed. In reality, there is nothing he can do and he knows it. But he has to act the part, and if that means grasping at absolutely ridiculous straws (no unusual feat for him), then damn it, that’s what he’s going to do.
Donald Trump no longer has the constitutional authority to nominate Justices to the Supreme Court? Who says? Not you, not me and certainly not the Constitution. But Chuck Schumer says it, not because he believes it, but because he has to say something to keep the barbarians from storming the gate, so why not?
"It is unseemly for the President of the United States to be picking a Supreme Court Justice who could soon be, effectively, a juror in a case involving the President himself,” Mr. Schumer declared, picking up a trope that has quickly become part of the liberal echo chamber. Senators Mazie Hirono (Hawaii) and Ed Markey (his own private Idaho) cancelled meetings with Judge Kavanaugh, with Mr. Markey saying he is now an “illegitimate” nominee.  
So let’s see. Donald Trump is the elected President with the power of appointment under the Constitution, but because his former lawyer has pleaded guilty to evading taxes and paying off a couple of Mr. Trump’s alleged mistresses, Mr. Trump no longer enjoys the powers of the Presidency under Article II. This novel interpretation of presidential authority somehow eluded James Madison." - WSJ
This is not going to change a single vote on Kavanaugh’s confirmation, and Schumer knows it. What’s more, Kavanaugh is not going to be a “jurist” in any criminal case involving Donald Trump. Schumer has a history of making declarations about process and principle that completely contradict previous statements he made on the exact same subjects, with the only variable being which party happens to be in power at the moment. He knows he contradicts himself and fears no consequences precisely because he knows the mainstream media will never call him on it. -  READ MORE
