The NY Times’ completely biased article about Trump

with 12 comments

This article is an anti-Trump hatchet job to make him appear guilty.

What the article would say if it was fair and balanced:

(1) It’s NOT illegal to do business in Russia. And the Clintons know that very well, because Bill Clinton got paid $500,000 to give a speech in Russia.

(2) It’s NOT illegal to pay hush money to someone. (And normally, if anyone is guilty of a crime, it’s the person who’s demanding the hush money.)

I don’t know what to think (except maybe that Trump is worried about his nominee not being approved by the Senate, so he picks someone who was previously approved for the same job).

Did George H.W. Bush become president by being nice?

with 16 comments

The media has been pushing this meme.

When he ran against Reagan for the Republican nomination, he called Reagan’s economic plan “voodoo economics.” That doesn’t sound that nice to me. It sounds negative.

Bush won the election in 1988 because people were really voting for Reagan.

In 1992, running as himself rather than as a continuation of Reagan, he lost to Bill Clinton.

Obviously, the point of this meme is that the media hates Trump because he’s not nice (which is true), but it’s the mainstream media that created the environment for someone like Trump to be successful. The mainstream media just takes advantage of nice Republicans. The only way to be successful against the left-wing mainstream media and its immense bias against conservatives is to be like Trump.

Obama is the opposite of George H.W. Bush

with 7 comments

CNN talked about how George H.W. Bush did everything possible to help his successor, Bill Clinton, have a successful presidency.

Obama did everything possible to sabotage Trump’s presidency. His administration started the Russia investigation, and one his last acts as President was to expel 35 Russian diplomats in order to sabotage Trump’s stated desire to have better relations with Russia, as well enhancing the narrative that the Russians stole the election from Hilary.

My statement about Michael Cohen

with 37 comments

Russia is not our enemy. Obama himself said that the Cold War ended in the 1990s, and he mocked Mitt Romney for saying that Russia was any sort of threat to the globe.

It’s not illegal to visit Russia, do business in Russia, talk to people in Russia.

Trump owns a huge business empire that has dealings in many foreign countries. There’s nothing in our Constitution that says you can’t run for office if you own a business empire.

When people talk to the FBI, police, Congress, whatever, they have the tendency to tell little white lies and spin things to make themselves seem more innocent, even when they aren’t guilty of anything. Mueller can turn these minor things into an indictment for perjury or “obstruction of justice.”

The lesson is to never talk to anyone (except for your own lawyer) if law enforcement is out to get you. Maybe Michael Cohen thought that, because he was a lawyer himself, he knew what he was doing. There’s a second lesson for you: hubris is your enemy.

* * *

Our biggest global enemy is not Russia, it’s China. And Obama’s brother has much closer ties to China than anyone in Trump’s family has ties to Russia. So why don’t people think that Obama hopelessly corrupted by enemy influence?

And what about Uranium One, and Bill Clinton getting paid half a million dollars to give a “speech” in Russia? Are Bill Clinton’s speeches so amazing that they are worth $500,000 each, or was it some kind or bribe?

Trump is the weak one

with 21 comments

Trump says that Cohen is weak, but TRUMP is the person who has the power to stop the Mueller probe and issue pardons, but he has shown no indication of doing such a thing, he just whines about it on Twitter. Obama would never have allowed himself and his cronies to be investigated and prosecuted in this manner.

I don’t blame Cohen for caving in. (Caving in means pleading guilty to a “crime” that makes Trump look guilty, regardless of whether Cohen could have reasonably been convicted of that crime in a real court, because Cohen thinks that by doing so, Mueller will go easy on him. Of course, Mueller isn’t a very trustworthy person to deal with, it looks like he back-stabbed Manafort after Manafort cooperated.)

* * *

Harvard Law School professor emeritus Alan Dershowitz on Thursday suggested Michael Cohen’s plea deal with Robert Mueller is another example of how special counsels can find wrongdoing where it doesn’t necessarily exist.

“I think the weakness of Mueller’s substantive findings are suggested by the fact that he has to resort to false statement prosecutions, which really shows that he didn’t start with very much, and that the very fact that he’s conducting an investigation has created these crimes,” Dershowitz, a frequent critic of Mueller’s federal Russia probe, told Fox News.

“These are not crimes that had been committed prior to his appointment,” he said. “They’re crimes that were committed as the result of his appointment, and that raises some questions about the role of special prosecutors in creating crimes, or creating opportunities for crimes to be committed.”

Alan Dershowitz is the only person in the mainstream media offering unbiased analysis of this issue.

I don’t want a dictator

with 64 comments

This is a response to certain commenters.

When dictators replace democratic governments, things are more likely to get worse than get better. No thanks. I like the United States with its freedoms.

That said, it’s the left wing that’s now actively trying to curtail the freedom of speech of American citizens, even as they insist that foreigners in foreign countries have constitutional rights to immigrate here.

And the left wing routinely accuses Trump of being “authoritarian” when in fact (if you ignore his stupid tweets) he’s the weakest and least authoritarian President we’ve had in a long time. He can’t get anything done, his own government doesn’t obey him, a rogue prosecutor in his own DOJ is out to get him, liberal judges routinely overrule his executive orders and won’t even let him kick Jim Acosta out of his own White House for bad behavior.

Alan Dershowitz says Mueller report will be bad news for Trump

with 18 comments

Dershowitz has been the most impartial* op-ed contributor in the mainstream media when it comes to Trump’s legal issues.

Remember that Mueller is out to get Trump, and even if there will be no charges against Trump, Mueller will draft the report in such a way that the Trump-hating mainstream media will be able to latch onto things in it and soberly repeat in their echo chamber how bad it looks for Trump.

*Being impartial has caused Dershowitz to be labelled as pro-Trump and hated by many on the left, even though Dershowitz actually doesn’t like Trump.

* * *

Frau Katze asked, in a comment, why Mueller didn’t release a report before the midterm elections.

Here is my answer:

1. He’s still working on it.
2. Mueller want’s to appear impartial, and releasing it before the election would have made him appear partisan. Mueller is concerned about his legacy.
3. He doesn’t hate Republicans in general—Bush appointed him—he just hates Trump.
4. Waiting until the Dems take over the House means his report will motivate them to Impeach Trump. Whom he hates. So waiting until January will do maximum damage to Trump.

I also predict that although there won’t be any specific facts that show that Trump colluded with Russia, or even any specific facts that show how the DNC emails were obtained, there will be lots of innuendo to create the appearance of impropriety, and a lot of charges of “obstruction of justice” and similar process crimes.

There will be enough there for the Trump-hating media to magnify it.
