Until now, Trump has been able to pretty much limit his campaign against fake news to TV networks, magazines and newspapers, but now, thanks to Michael Wolff, he has had to extend the war zone to books.

Although I haven’t read Mr. Wolff’s latest, I have certainly had its contents debated non-stop for the past two weeks.  Although I admit to bias, I would have to say I agree with those whose mantra might be “The line ‘tween fact and lies in ‘Fire and Fury’ is, at the very least, extremely blurry.”

It doesn’t help that many of those in the media who are now defending Mr. Wolff as an honest reporter used to label him corrupt, notorious for spicing up his reportage by making up controversial quotes and sticking the words in the mouths of people who not only never said them, but contradicted their actual opinions.

According to Michael Wolff, the consensus among Trump’s closest advisors is that the President is a child who hungers for instant gratification.

As odd as it seems, Wolff has somehow managed to confuse me with the President. What makes it so weird is that Trump and I don’t look anything alike. He’s tall, I’m short. He favors suits and ties, while my wardrobe is pretty much limited to tennis shorts, sneakers and Hawaiian shirts. He has fly-away hair, whereas mine flew away a long time ago.

As for instant gratification, that might explain why I write 5 or 6 articles-a-week; it certainly wouldn’t apply to someone who has spent his life dealing with construction projects that could take years from conception to completion.

Even running for the presidency isn’t something you can do overnight. It required Trump to devote 16 months of 18-hour days to the enterprise, hardly the sort of thing that would be undertaken by someone who requires instant gratification.

One of the questions being asked by a great many people is why Steve Bannon would have jeopardized his own political fortunes by feeding Michael Wolff an endless array of quotes that built himself up at Trump’s expense.

The one theory that seems the most obvious is one I haven’t heard from anyone else. The man has a nose as red as the huge raspberry that used to adorn the face of Hollywood’s legendary sot, W.C. Fields. Unless Mr. Bannon suffers from a constant cold and is in desperate need of medical attention, I’m guessing that over the years large infusions of alcoholic beverages have loosened his tongue and unhinged his brain.

* There are others in the media whose dishonesty is a little harder to detect. I would refer to Mike Wallace, whose camouflage as an honest reporter is that he has a Sunday morning talk show on Fox.

It can take a while to realize that he is no more an objective reporter than his father, Mike, an uberliberal from New York, was, when he was a regular on “60 Minutes.” Known for his ambush interviews, it didn’t take viewers very long to realize that he ambushed Republicans far more often and with greater relish than he ever did Democrats.

Understand, I don’t object to Chris Wallace asking Republicans tough questions. However, when he recently had former Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski as a guest on his show, and not only pretended that he had no idea why our European allies would differ with Trump when it comes to voicing support for the anti-Ayatollah Khamenei demonstrators in Iran, but exhibited obvious approval of Europe’s position, he once again gave the game away.

The reason that Europe, France in particular, doesn’t share Trump’s position has nothing to do with their moral superiority, everything to do with the deals their companies cut with Iran once 
liar-nObama lifted the sanctions in order to pave the way for his misbegotten nuclear deal with the mullahs.

Chris Wallace further displays his anti-Trump bias by placing his thumb on the scales and, more often than not, balances the two liberals on his four-person panel with Never-Trump Republicans like Karl Rove and Guy Benson.

* In the past, I recall that to qualify as an FBI agent, one had to have either a degree in law or accounting.  These days, a bachelor’s degree in criminal justice, political science, engineering or computer science, are also sufficient.

Judging by the level of partisanship and corruption that currently appears to be rampant at the Bureau, I’d say they need many more accountants, engineers and computer scientists, and far fewer lawyers and poly sci majors.

* Andy Schafly, one of the late Phyllis Schafly’s four sons, and heir to her political philosophy, has been waging war on those pushing for a Constitutional Convention for several years.

For those unfamiliar with the ConCon controversy, it has united people as disparate as George Soros and the Koch brothers on the wrong side of the debate. The three billionaires may have different motives for funding the misguided movement, but their reasons – in Soros’s case, open borders resulting in more potential left-wing voters; in the case of the Koch boys, a steady flow of cheap labor and the legalization of marijuana -- are equally rotten for America.

With so much money at their disposal, it probably shouldn’t be too surprising they’ve been able to bring aboard the likes of Jim DeMint and Tom Coburn, who took early retirement from the U.S. Senate in order dive headfirst into the pockets of billionaires.

When David Koch served as Ed Clark’s V.P. running mate in the 1980 presidential race, their Libertarian platform emphasized the legalization of pot and homosexual rights.  I suppose it speaks well for Koch’s perseverance, if not for the maturing of his priorities in 38 years, that nothing much has changed.

It also speaks well of the American people that in that election, Ronald Reagan and George H.W. Bush garnered 43,901,812 votes to Clark and Koch’s 921,128.

* It strikes me that the toppling of statues of Confederate notables was as cowardly and contemptible as the way that Stalin used to edit Soviet history by airbrushing his rivals out of old May Day photographs. One didn’t have to be a defender of slavery to be offended by the vandalizing of American history.

Still, how is it that Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee, who represents the 16th congressional district of Texas, has been left intact in spite of the fact she bears the names of the Confederacy’s two most famous generals, Robert E. Lee and Thomas “Stonewall” Jackson?

If there’s any justice in the world, Mrs. Lee will soon be removed from the hallowed halls of Congress, melted down and possibly reappear as part of a bridge or highway as a result of the upcoming infrastructure bill.

Better yet, considering the prominent role she has played in fomenting racial division in America, a more appropriate fate might be the one suggested by the Yiddish curse calling for a villain’s reincarnation as a chandelier, to hang by day and burn by night.

ALERT ALERT

 Kavanaugh Accuser Donated   To Hillary Clinton  10 Times,  60+ Liberal Groups 

Reportedly attempted to conceal political activity by scrubbing social media accounts

Over the weekend, a name and face were added to the previously anonymous sexual assault allegation against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, which is now threatening to derail his nomination. Those looking to obstruct Kavanaugh’s confirmation certainly saved their best for last, as the prior attempts included pathetic stunts such as:

– Claiming to file perjury charges against Kavanaugh, which only Jeff Sessions would have the ability to file.

– Packing the hearings with hysterical protesters, resulting in hundreds of arrests.

– Threatening female Republicans with extortion.

– Cory Booker comparing himself to Spartacus, the escaped slave who led a revolt against the Romans.

The identity of the accuser was revealed as Christine Blasey Ford, who has agreed testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee. Ford reportedly made the allegations back in July in a letter to Senator Dianne Feinstein, and Feinstein waited until it was close to the vote to confirm Kavanaugh before making the accusations public.

There’s a record of Ford making the accusation in a 2012 therapy session, though Kavanaugh isn’t named in the session notes that Ford gave to the press. Ford alleges that in the early 1980s, Kavanaugh entered a room drunk, pinned her to a bed, and groped her over her clothing. Kavanaugh “categorically denied” the allegations.View image on Twitter

Fin Gomez @finnygo   NEW: Statement from Judge Brett Kavanaugh:

There is a slight discrepancy in the account Ford provided in her letter to Feinstein and in her therapist’s notes, but that could simply be due to an error on her therapists part.

There are however some other questions that need to be answered which call into question Ford’s motives.

As Grabien reported, they include:

1. Why Ford deleted her public social media accounts before revealing herself.

Ford deleted all of her public social media before she came forward, making it difficult to see the advocacy and partisanship she was engaged in the time leading up to her making her allegation public. Of course, Ford may simply value her privacy, but the act of deleting her public postings will inevitably make some wonder what she didn’t want seen.

2. That Ford may have an unrelated grudge against Kavanaugh, as his mother, once a circuit court judge, ruled against Ford’s parents.

In August 1996, Christine Blasey Ford’s parents, Paula and Ralph Blasey, were foreclosed upon. Kavanaugh’s mom, Martha, was then serving as a judge on the Montgomery Country Circuit Court, and she ruled against Christine Ford’s parents.

3. That Ford is a Democrat who donates to left-wing causes, attended the anti-Trump March for Science, and previously signed an open letter challenging Trump’s border policy.

Ford is a political activist who has made dozens of donations to left-wing causes. According to OpenSecrets, she has made more than 60 donations to liberal causes, with almost four dozen to the pro-abortion group, Emily’s List, alone. Ford also donated to the DNC, Hillary Clinton (more than 10 times), Bernie Sanders, and the progressive organizing group ActBlue.

Ford likewise attended the anti-Trump March for Science, where she wore a hat knitted like a human brain, but inspired by the feminist “pussy hats” worn at the Women’s Marches. Ford also added her name to an open letter from health professionals who argued the U.S. border policy resulting in temporary separation of some families was harmful to children’s development.

There’s no statute of limitations on sexual assault in Maryland, where she claims that the assault happened. Rather than go to the police, Ford went to Dianne Feinstein. If her accusations are true, she should immediately file a police report against Kavanaugh and take him to trial. If she doesn’t, perhaps that’s because she knows the consequences of filing a false police report.
