Where is the Trump-Bashing Apology?

Didn’t see it, did you?

Well, there are stories both on WND and InfoWars this morning about the NSA program called Project Dragnet.  SAurveiled Trump (18 locations?).

Now, you may not LIKE the story (if you’re a Trump-basher) and we certainly didn’t see it mentioned on the front page of the NY Times today, but as the intelligence committee of the Fools on the Hill gets ready to look into such claims, we have near –certainty that all that will result is either a complete whitewash (80% odds) or a single scapegoat (20 & odds).

Sad, ain’t it?

When I see stories in the Times like “What to Expect when Comey Meets with the House Intelligence Committee – I could have written that story as a one-word article:

NOTHING!

Jeez Louise…can we get some grown-up reporting going on???

Sure, the surveillance story has links to Joe Arpaio and such…BFD.  Follow the damn story – enough of the fake news mainstream and covering up for the idiot class in D.C. for crying out loud…

Still, the non-stop bashing is making headway in the polls.  See the latest Gallup results here – 37%.

I figure it would be 10 points higher – or more – if the surveillance story was more widely covered…but that’s not what the MSM is selling, is it?

We have to agree with the Galway Pundit remark “It’s really funny to see fake news CNN try to call out Trump as a liar…” 

Yep.

The Trumpster tweets it right: 

“The real story that Congress, the FBI and all others should be looking into is the leaking of Classified information.  Must find leaker now!”

The Week Ahead

Press release of the day is the Chicago Fed National Activity Report:

Led by improvements in employment-related indicators, the Chicago Fed National Activity Index (CFNAI) increased to +0.34 in February from –0.02 in January. All four broad categories of indicators that make up the index increased from January, and only one of the four categories made a negative contribution to the index in February.

The index’s three-month moving average, CFNAI-MA3, improved to +0.25 in February from +0.07 in January, reaching its highest level since December 2014. February’s CFNAI-MA3 suggests that growth in national economic activity was somewhat above its historical trend. The economic growth reflected in this level of the CFNAI-MA3 suggests limited inflationary pressure from economic activity over the coming year.

The CFNAI Diffusion Index, which is also a three-month moving average, moved up to +0.17 in February from +0.02 in January. Fifty-five of the 85 individual indicators made positive contributions to the CFNAI in February, while 30 made negative contributions. Sixty-three  indicators improved from January to February, while 22 indicators deteriorated. Of the indicators that improved, 15 made negative contributions.

Other than that, a lot of FedSpeak on the rubber chicken circuit this week.  Yellen herself speaks Thursday morning.

Friday the Dural Goods report is just barely moving the meter around here.  All in all, we could call this a news weak period.

BREXIT at Last?

Happens next week.  Maybe.

As usual the Brussels sprouts (the E.U. clown posse) is saying how sorry the Brits will be…yada, yada.

We cynically wonder how is it Hitler’s idea of a unified Europe is any better than what the current cast of clowns is doing? 

Fire Disaster North of Denver

400 homes up in smoke from the Sunshine fire so far.

Spring is Sprung

Five things to expect.

None of them worth clicking.

In fact, screw it…I’m going back to bed.  This week ain’t worth losing sleep over.

Why even the futures are asleep…flat opening coming.

Where’s my pillow?

Where is the Trump-Bashing Apology? — 24 Comments

  1. OMG. Guys. There is a much bigger picture going on here. What’s the end games that both parties have been working on for a long time. Any idea? All you have to do is look at what is happening to the cultures in Europe to see that their cultures are being dismantled and replace by growing birth rate of Muslims. Now immigrants and antiFa have joined forces in Paris to reek more havac. That will spread to other cities and Nations, including ours. Obama, has been steady bring in more and more Muslims in. Outside muscle (Saul Alinsky). It’s very sad to see “Americans” sell out our country. I think I will see the new America ” The Islamic States of America” in my life time. Trump has delayed this. I hope he can stop as it or all those people who gave their lives defending our constitution and protecting our way of life would have died needlessly. Oh ps, my mother was a Muslim, if she knew the truth about them she would have NEVER convert. She absolutely hated, HATRED pedophiles and women abusers.

  2. Could it be that supervising elected political institutions, etc. there’s still an unknown force that directs activities? How else could one explain the goings on in our every day life?? (Sometimes it appears we are a giant ‘Petri Dish’ used to determine how much stupidity the human race can tolerate). In essence, we are all innocent! ‘-)

  3. Just to clarify RE: The sunshine fire. 400-ish homes were under evac orders, not burned to the ground. Also, as of 9:30 am MDT, the evac order was lifted. So, no catastrope here. Sorry doomporners.

  4. Some of your readers should research “Operation Mockingbird” if they believe that the corporate MSM contains “real” news, when it is factually known to be a propaganda machine. There are conspiracy theories, and then there are conspiracy facts.

  5. Wow, haters are everywhere. No wonder Bush wouldn’t endorse him, he was in on the game. Too bad so many people still have blinders on.

  6. George,

    You not find it newsworthy that our President knowingly falsely claimed someone committed a felony and then contended that the US’s closest allies were co-conspirators? The false reporting of a crime is itself a crime, no George? It’s not newsworthy that our President is a compulsive liar? What ‘grownup’ world do you live in? This pretending must be exhausting to you. Are tax cuts really that important? Mike.

  7. There is no other excuse I can see other than the loss of Reason and Logic.

    Even assuming everything in the InfoWars story is true…it doesn’t prove Trump’s claim that Obama tapped Trump. Going by the dates in the InfoWars story it looks like the surveillance claimed by InfoWars started under GWB and stopped within O’s first month in office. And that’s taking the InfoWars story at face value. It made sense for GWB to spy on Trump because Trump was a democrat at the time. :)

    Please don’t forget that it was GWB and republicans who pushed the Patriot Act, which was really only opposed by democrats. It was GWB and republicans who pushed Total Information Awareness and Poindexter, only opposed by democrats. republicans put the NSA UT data mining center on the map and it was GWB’s secret surveillance program that allowed telecomm to put servers in their switches. Reminder – the “liberal”, “failing”, “fake news” NYTs sat on GWB’s secret surveillance program at the behest of GWB until after the 2004 election.

    “The White House asked The New York Times not to publish this article, arguing that it could jeopardize continuing investigations and alert would-be terrorists that they might be under scrutiny. After meeting with senior administration officials to hear their concerns, the newspaper delayed publication for a year to conduct additional reporting.”

    Think it may have effected the 2004 election if the “liberal”, “fake news”, “failing” NYTs didn’t agree to sit on GWBs surveillance of all Americans until after the election?

  8. Jon has a point George. You spend way too much time with your nose in Trump’s rear-end. You never hold Trump accountable for his massive mistakes, but you cry around that the “Trump-bashers” are being completely unfair to the commander-in-chief. Stop blogging like a paid-off, groveling minion, and get back to what you’re good at. Hold everybody in power accountable, rather than just the “whiny-dens-on-the-hill” and Paul Ryan.
