Is Scott Pelley The King Of Fake News?


Perhaps not realizing that this would become a sensitive subject, "The New York Times" reported on this travesty (and probable multiple felonies) in 2015.

The headline on the website Pravda trumpeted President Vladimir V. Putin’s latest coup, its nationalistic fervor recalling an era when its precursor served as the official mouthpiece of the Kremlin: “Russian Nuclear Energy Conquers the World.”
The article, in January 2013, detailed how the Russian atomic energy agency, Rosatom, had taken over a Canadian company with uranium-mining stakes stretching from Central Asia to the American West. The deal made Rosatom one of the world’s largest uranium producers and brought Mr. Putin closer to his goal of controlling much of the global uranium supply chain.
But the untold story behind that story is one that involves not just the Russian president, but also a former American president and a woman who would like to be the next one.
At the heart of the tale are several men, leaders of the Canadian mining industry, who have been major donors to the charitable endeavors of former President Bill Clinton and his family. Members of that group built, financed and eventually sold off to the Russians a company that would become known as Uranium One.
Hurry, before they scrub the story.

From Newsbusters:

But Pelley’s bold assertion is highly misleading. It wasn’t Hillary who was alleged to have been paid for the Uranium, it was her husband and the family foundation. And there was not one, but two credible sources who found those connections.
As many would remember, these assertions were brought up in the book Clinton Cash, which was written by Peter Schweizer.  One of his earlier books, Throw Them All Out, opened the nation’s eyes to how members of Congress take advantage of their insider knowledge and position to enrich themselves. The book was so successful that Congress was forced to pass bill limited that ability, even though they later removed it.

 Scott Pelley is a chronic, habitual and malicious liar (and a bad liar at that). To borrow from his predecessor, "And that's the way it is."

Is Comey Directly Tweeting Putin?

The suggestions were algorithmically selected based on the account I requested to follow, a significant number of which bore the last name “Comey” (Patrice is his wife). Among the various Comeys, only two of the suggested accounts lacked both real names and profile photos. And only one of these had anywhere near the “nine followers” that James Comey claimed to have. That account was reinholdniebuhr.

Podesta's Russian Ruble Connection

Got to love those Dems. They love to accuse others of the crimes the commit.

Obama's Image Slipping On The Left? Is Now "Next Best Thing To Jesus"

How the mighty have fallen. Not too many years ago, Georgetown University shrouded the name of Jesus in black cloth prior to the on-campus arrival of "The One." We would also see a well-worn MSM hack describe Barack Obama as "kind of like God." We would lay witness to an ongoing parade of conspicuous deification. For better or worse, yesterday's deity is now "The next best thing..."

We have not heard how the ex-president is handling his downgrade. Blasphemers beware!

Anti-Trumpers Bring The Heat

I have nothing against the free exercise of the Second Amendment. A lot of Trump marches are set upon by violent mobs. All peaceful in Phoenix where both sides were armed. An armed society is a polite society.

Having said that, the anti-Trumpers pictured in the video might be guilty of brandishing their weapons

Grain Of Salt Department: James Comey And Admiral Rodgers' Body Language


Donald Trump, Meet Conservative Principles. Conservative Principles, Meet The President You Elected

In the political realm, people who would rather be right in defeat than wrong in victory are not understood nor appreciated. The Karl Roves and John Podestas might cozy up to principled people when it is to their advantage, but behind their backs they roll their eyes and make Ferris wheel motions with their index finger swirling around their temple. They accept these quirky bastards when they march in unison but when they fall out of step...

The new Ryan Care bill went down in defeat. Wall Street Journal reports that Trump is now courting Democrats. Jeanine Pirro blamed Paul Ryan on Saturday night and the Freedom Caucus on Sunday night. Steve Bannon wants to create an enemies list, starting with House Conservatives. Professional turncoat, Glenn Beck, tired of dumping on Donald Trump and started dumping on potential No voters.  Is the honeymoon over?

Donald Trump could probably be included with the Roves and Podestas in the confused by principles department. One little spat and he is ready to scout an upgrade. Let me remind you, Mr. President, George Clooney did not take you to the prom. The cool kids laughed at you but the dorky Christian kid from the wrong side of the tracks would be your prince, Cinderella. Now you can't dance with a dude who has two right feet? Look before you leap, my friend.

Before you let Chuckie and his friends have their way with you, Mr. President, ask yourself: Will they respect you in the morning?

The previous blog post tried to explain why we can NEVER negotiate with the Left.   Forget principles for a moment. From an amoral, politically pragmatic perspective do you really think it will serve you to play kissy face with the Dems? Let us examine recent history.

Bush 41 posed as a Conservative. "Read my lips. No new taxes." Then we read his middle finger, he raised our taxes and soon, the political career of one of this country's best-ever resumes went down in flames. Pat Buchanan challenged him in the primaries. Ross Perot was able to get some traction and drain about 1/5 of the vote tally from Bush. Did the Dems show any gratitude for Bush advancing their agenda? Insert laugh track here.

For eight years, the Clinton Administration blamed all that was wrong in the Middle East on Bush 41. If only he had gone into Baghdad. If only he had finished the job. George Bush 43 so badly wanted to correct his father's perceived failure. So he invaded Iraq. Overnight, the Dem narrative changed. Bush 43 lied about WMD's so as to his excuse his bloodlust for brown people and to enrich Haliburton, Inc.

On the home front, Bush expanded the welfare state, promoted reckless spending and pretty much gave the Dems carte blanche. George W. Bush was arguably, the best president the Democrats ever had, even if he was a Republican. Did the Dems extend their gratitude for all of his cooperation? Insert laugh track here.

John McCain was called a maverick for his independence. "Reach across the aisle," was his unofficial motto. He has always had a soft spot for Democrats and their agenda? Did that endear him to the Dems and their media loyalists in 2008? No, they created a smear campaign against McCain and "New York Times" apparently fabricated an innuendo-laden report involving the senator and a blond lobbyist. For reaching across that aisle, McCain got his fingers burned.

Mitt Romney morphed into a virtual Democrat, creating a Massachusetts precursor to what would become Obamacare? Think the Democrats ever developed a love or respect for their ally? Where is that damn laugh track?

If such things matter to you, Cinderella, don't worry about hurting your prince's feelings. His heart has more calluses than yours. He has been dumped by beauties and beasts and everything in between. Go ahead and stab him in the back, you won't penetrate his buffalo hide. It will sting a little but you won't hit any vital organs.

Before you go sleeping around, Cinderella, try to appreciate what you already have. Do you think you will find his kind of loyalty in establishment Republicans? Paul Ryan abandoned you as soon as the "Access Hollywood" audio hit the airwaves. Most of the old boy GOP's were never on your side. Has Kristol or Krauthammer or Will ever defended you?

The conservative base is loyal first and foremost to principles like Judeo-Christian values, patriotism, strong families, free enterprise, rule of law...Principle first. Proper nouns second. If you understand that, Mr. President, you will have an ally with a loyalty so strong as to be confusing to Washington insiders. If you cannot recognize the value of your most steadfast allies, Mr. President, then you are not half as smart as we thought you were.

Why We Cannot Negotiate With The Left

It dawned on me a couple of years ago but finally crystallized in 2016 and has been reconfirmed in 2017: The conflict between The Cult of Leftism and the patchwork coalition that opposes the Left is not so much a clash of values but rather, a conflict stemming from incompatible mental processes. 
The Left is anti-rational. That cannot be understated. They might seem unprincipled or ill-informed but they are committed to Leftism and to leaders who will advance The Left. We want a courtroom battle fought under strict and unyielding rules. The Left wants to delay and disrupt proceedings, replace the judge with one of their own, tamper with the jury and rewrite the transcripts. Where is our middle ground?

Democrats have become radicalized by the left. This doesn’t just mean that they pursue all sorts of bad policies. It means that their first and foremost allegiance is to an ideology, not the Constitution, not our country or our system of government. All of those are only to be used as vehicles for their ideology.
 That’s why compromise has become impossible.
Our system of government was designed to allow different groups to negotiate their differences. But those differences were supposed to be based around finding shared interests. The most profound of these shared interests was that of a common country based around certain civilizational values. The left has replaced these Founding ideas with radically different notions and principles. It has rejected the primary importance of the country. As a result it shares little in the way of interests or values.

Greenfield's analysis is profound. It also disturbing. We are in a cold civil war that could turn hot with every tick of the clock. A genuine flesh and blood civil war might be inevitable. 
We can only negotiate with rational forces who share some common values. The Left's only objective is to conquer America. Brace yourself for what is coming.
