Field of Anonymous Trump Donors Getting Crowded

Debra J. Saunders, The American Spectator

The field of anonymous Trump accusers is getting crowded. In August, an identity-shielded whistleblower came forward with a complaint that “the president of the United States is using the power of his office to solicit interference from a foreign country in the 2020 U.S. election.” The unidentified whistleblower’s lawyer said he represents another unidentified whistleblower. If there’s something voters don’t know that Anonymous thinks they need to, he or she could pen another op-ed, not a bestseller — or better yet, with an election a year away, come forward and face the wrath of the right in the light of day.

Why are Democrats acting like they have something to hide?

Michael Goodwin, New York Post

These are extraordinary events and the effort to expose the truth about both the spying on a presidential candidate and the subsequent plot to upend his administration is so rich with bombshell potential that you would think the media would be licking their chops over the scoops to come. Instead, The New York Times, CNN and the rest of the Democratic propaganda outlets are furious that the public may finally learn the whole sordid story about one of the most disgraceful episodes in presidential history. And so they have joined forces with Comey, Brennan, Clapper, Schiff, Nadler and Pelosi in attacking Barr for daring to hunt for the truth.

Durham Investigation Is Criminal: a Disaster for the MSM

Roger L. Simon, PJ Media

It's just been announced that the John Durham investigation into the provenance of the Russia probe has turned into a criminal investigation. Subpoenas and grand juries are coming, real ones, not the Star Chamber counterfeits being orchestrated by the panicked Democrats and their junior league Southern California Torquemada. To those of us who have been watching this spectacle from the beginning, this was inevitable. After all, where'd the Mueller/Russia probe come from in the first place? Since there was absolutely no there there, it makes no sense that it wasn't a fraud from the outset. Who started it? We should soon be finding out.

Debate questions that the Democrats should have been asked

Ann Coulter, The Hill

The most riveting moment came when Joe Biden finally was forced to explain his demand, as vice president, that the Ukrainian president fire a prosecutor who was investigating the company that was paying Biden’s son millions of dollars. Just kidding. Of course that didn’t happen. The media’s role in ferreting out the facts of Biden’s Ukrainian scandal is simply to announce repeatedly that the vice president is as clean as a whistle — That’s not true, it’s disproven, it’s been debunked! Instead of hours of denouncing Trump, how about the next debate’s moderators ask the Democrats to explain some of their more bizarre pronouncements?

Media Attempt to School Republicans Is a Disingenuous Fraud

Roger Kimball, American Greatness

The real crisis in America today is the utter politicization of the increasingly distraught legacy media. The election of Donald Trump challenged their cozy understanding of the world, turning it upside down. Adding insult to the injury of that existential assault is the fact that Donald Trump has been wildly, spectacularly successful. He has made America more prosperous, more secure, less harried by bureaucrats, and freer in their ability to practice their religion. What we are witnessing with such gems of hysterical mendacity are the pathetic death throes of a discredited political franchise and its rapidly disintegrating narrative.

Trump's Labeling of 'Fake News' Was an Understatement

Roger L. Simon, PJ Media

Those same mainstream media outlets are now making a big deal out of the Ukraine, even though Trump was obviously trying to figure out who had instigated the Russia probe in the first place. Wouldn't you? And as for Biden, media have known about the humungous corruption of Biden, Hunter, and Burisma since 2015 and barely reported it. It was clearly of no interest to them because the right people, their people, were the ones being corrupt. The newspapers above should all have a stamp on the front pages "CAUTION- -DISINFORMATION." The networks should lose their licenses. They have abused their near-monopoly statuses.

Martina Navratilova’s loyalty to Trump-hating overlords

Tammy Bruce, Washington Times

The requirement to prove one’s fealty to Trump-hating leftist overlords impacts more people than you realize. As a testament to what the left does to the very people they claim to represent, Ms. Navratilova has been reduced to sniping at another gay person who is actually doing work to improve the lives of everyone and working to, literally, save the lives of gay people in countries that remain determined to imprison and even kill them. The strategy of the bullies on the left to destroy an icon like Ms. Navratilova is meant to send a message to every other liberal: Don’t you dare step out of line or you will pay a horrible price.

Bad Gaslighting Epidemic Sweeps The Elite

Kurt Schlichter, Townhall

Because they're hiding their own incompetence, our elite tries to convince us that we are crazy for noticing just how lame they are. That’s called “gaslighting,” the straight-faced denial of what’s happening right in front of you that tries to leverage your politeness and deference to convince you that it’s not the elite that’s rotten. You’re just crazy for noticing, you crazed crazy person of craziness. It’s bad enough that they lie to us all the time. But what makes it worse is how their lies are such glaringly obvious fabrications and/or dissimulations that the deepest insult is that they think we might believe them.

The Incredible Vanishing Whistleblower

L. Brent Bozell III and Tim Graham, CNS News

Imagine the Republicans had tried to impeach then-President Bill Clinton in 1998 for some phone call he made to a foreign leader, and that they'd said they had an anonymous whistleblower who never heard Clinton's phone call. The press would have mocked all of it as an enormous waste of time and money and a huge distraction from the legislative "business of the people." Their completely different and partisan reaction to this only underlines how much collusion goes on between the journalists and the Democrats. They're hard to distinguish from one another. They use all the same talking points and catchphrases.

Anonymous Accusations and Their Dangerous Purveyors

David Catron, The American Spectator

Anonymous accusations have been regarded with suspicion by honorable leaders for at least two millennia. Media hype and third-rate pollsters notwithstanding, the majority of voters know exactly what is going on here. The danger is that they will eventually conclude that any system that employs such people is irredeemably corrupt. Trump’s supporters voted for him because they still believe in the system, that it can be fixed with a new kind of leader who doesn’t worship the state gods to whom the Washington establishment swears obeisance. This may be the last chance to convince the voters that they really matter.

Ken Cuccinelli For Secretary Of Homeland Security

Our preferred replacement for acting Secretary of Homeland Security Kevin McAleenan is acting Director of the Citizenship and Immigration Services Ken Cuccinelli. Cuccinelli has three things that McAleenan lacked – a commitment to the Trump border security agenda, a willingness to fight Democrats and the Republican establishment to make the President’s agenda a reality, and the effective TV presence necessary to sell it to the American people.

The Self-Congratulation in Banned Books Week

L. Brent Bozell III and Tim Graham, CNS News

"We work to never allow content with hate speech in our stores, and in cases when something slips through, we take quick and resolute action to remove it." The American Library Association has a new list of Top 10 Most Challenged Books in libraries. Troublemakers with time on their hands could have fun compiling a list of books that libraries choose not to stock due to controversial content. We could host a splashy celebration of Books Librarians Hate Week. They should acknowledge that some noxious books and ideas are worth protesting or ignoring. But you cannot celebrate free speech except for that which you want to ban.

126 Conservative Leaders Denounce Attempts to Impeach President Trump

126 participants in the Conservative Action Project have released a letter to Congress saying it is becoming increasingly clear that this march toward impeachment is nothing more than a partisan coup d’état to overturn the 2016 election and prevent voters from making their own decision as to whether to reelect the president in 2020.

Trump Approval Rating UP Since Fake "Whistleblower" Surfaced

If you look only at high-quality polls of Trump’s approval rating before and after news of the Ukraine scandal broke there’s actually been little change in Trump’s popularity – if anything, it has ticked slightly up with a new Hill-HarrisX survey released on October 2, showing President Trump’s approval ticked up to 49 percent — its highest mark this year.

Beware the 'Right-Wing Media Machine'?

L. Brent Bozell III and Tim Graham, CNS News

CNN media reporter Oliver Darcy is warning the public about a "right-wing media machine" that has demonstrated "zero willingness to abide by any traditional rules of engagement." That shameless "machine" opposing President Trump's impeachment and removal is, of course, composed of Fox News, talk radio, conservative websites and an "army of trolls" on the internet. It's easy to say your opponent is "weaponizing" information or specializes in "disinformation." What's hard is to believe the leftist media that portrays itself as "independent" and "nonpartisan" and only working to make "democracy" work. Nobody's buying that nonsense, and nobody should put up with the leftist media's duplicity.

Ukrainegate Shows We Need Fred Fleitz As Director Of National Intelligence

The United States needs an effective and uncorrupted intelligence apparatus to play its part in defending the nation, and Fred Fleitz has shown himself to be an adept and able administrator capable of doing the housecleaning necessary to air out the stench of Leftwing partisan politics in the intelligence community.

Conservatives Unravel Deep State Coup Against Trump

In this long article we summarize the tangled backstory conservatives have been able to unravel about the latest Deep State coup against President Trump. The details they have developed reveal a breathtaking assault on the Constitution by a conspiracy of Democrats and Far Left operatives in the intelligence agencies, in Congress and in Soros-funded organizations.

In Ukraine matter, Democrats apply Russiagate lesson: Strike fast, don't wait to find out what happened

Byron York, Washington Examiner

A fundamental fact of political investigations: They often uncover an inconclusive set of facts. Partisans can argue those facts one way or the other. Most recently, Democrats who had accused Trump of conspiring or coordinating with Russia were deeply disappointed by the release of the Mueller report. After all the media talk and all the accusations and after two years of investigating with full law enforcement powers, special counsel Robert Mueller could not establish that a conspiracy or coordination even took place. The lesson of Trump-Russia is: Move fast, don't withhold judgment. And don't want for the results a long, ponderous investigation.

Abortion Horrors Buried By the Press

L. Brent Bozell III and Tim Graham, CNS News

2,200 dead unborn babies were discovered in the Illinois home of a recently deceased abortion doctor named Ulrich Klopfer. Only Fox News cared about this revolting story. CNN has given it about a minute on air one weekend day, and The New York Times' initial story was put deep inside the paper. But ABC, CBS, NBC, MSNBC, NPR and PBS? These networks had hardly any interest in something a thousandfold more horrific. The "news" networks couldn't care less. They're currently stoking a national panic about teenagers caught up in a "vaping epidemic" or championing children who profess they are doomed to die in the next 12 years due to global warming.

What Conservatives Are Saying About Impeachment

We're with our friend Mark Levin: What a stupid, baseless, phony scandal the Democrats, Nevertrumpers & media are trying to promote. Endless conga line of Democrats and the like crying crocodile tears while covering up for the crooked Biden family. It won’t work.
