Will Washington media expose the liars
who spun the Trump-Russia hoax?

When will the Washington media correct the record and publicly burn their sources in the Obama FBI, the intelligence community and the political class who lied to them for years about that now-discredited Trump-Russia hoax? That hoax served as pretext for President Barack Obama’s FBI and CIA and others to investigate, and spy upon, the presidential campaign of a rival. As if by design, the now discredited Trump-Russia story consumed President Donald Trump’s White House and our politics for three years. And from the fetid cauldron of lies and spin grew the wholly partisan Democratic impeachment of the president

Journalism is dead. It died quite some time ago. Only the dead body remains. John Kass didn't ask an obvious question, "Why is John Brennan still employed by the media?"

DJT, as President, has not displayed 'questionable ethics.' Barack Obola, carefully insulated from the consequences of his questionable ethics, delegated dishonesty to others. John Kass disappointed me when he added that shot against our president.

Of corse they won't. But they will become even more irrelevant. If that's possible. Truth seekers of independent media will out and will totally supplant old media. Al Gore made all of this possible --don'cha know--with his invention of the internet.

90-95% of the media only produce leftist propaganda these days. Their jobs are to cover up leftist errors, sins and failures, and to invent bad things about conservatives and free market people. The will do everything that they can to just not report on these coup attempt stories. They will "just didnt' happen" away.

But did the Obama FBI, the intelligence community and the political class really lie to the Washington media, or were they all complicit in the same effort orchestrated to take down Trump? There's been no outrage, not once, by the media over the lies they repeatedly published based on "anonymous sources". Common sense would say that at some point the media, if it was actually being "lied to", would come back and say "HEY! WE'RE BEING LIED TO!" But that has not happened; not one time. So who is really being lied to? The media that reports the lies or the public which is getting orchestrated lies from the media?

Like a shrinking burnt-out star, the media have coalesced around DC as the seat of all power and financial might (or so they think). Whatever you think of NY, it was once the financial capital and a counterbalance to the political one in Washington. Many finance jobs can be done from nearly anywhere now as NY is discovering to its detriment. But politics still involves being in the room...which is why the richest counties in America surround DC now. Newspapers and networks survive because they suck up to power. Apart from the sugar daddy owners, the only reason the NY Times & Wash Post endure is because they act as vehicles for so-called leaks that are actually items dictated verbatim by the Democrats and Deep State. Newspapers in any other region of the nation are dying a rapid death because they have no such access or function. Even the WSJ news section tends to rely on tittle-tattle. By the same token, TV is forever showing us dramatic and inspirational (they think) shots of floodlit monuments and gleaming marble columns as if government is a religion and these are its cathedrals. If you've had the misfortune to visit DC then you know it's a tacky mid-Atlantic sprawl in a literal swamp with lots of ugly low-slung office buildings. The open secret is that Fox is as enamored of federal power as MSNBC and CNN. Being near the action makes the networks feel important. They want to see the US Paper Clip & Staples Procurement Agency dissolved about as much as they want to fly commercial with the proles. So no, the media won't disturb a single feather on the golden goose.

In March 2019, the retired police detective Mike Crowley met me in the lobby of a hotel near the Miami Dolphins’ stadium. Crowley, a 71-year-old Vietnam vet, was wearing shorts, a white undershirt, and a camouflage baseball hat that said MARINE in block caps. Over the course of three hours, he sipped a single rum and Coke. Four years earlier, Crowley said, he’d noticed a pattern in a string of jewelry-store robberies happening all over Florida: The same means of entry had been used every time.

Before he was the founder and president of Motown Records, Berry Gordy was a high school dropout who’d served in the Korean War and come home to try to find work as a songwriter while managing a store that sold jazz records and 3-D glasses. In 1957, the same year singer Jackie Wilson recorded a Gordy tuned called “Reet Petite” that turned into a modest hit, the aspiring songwriter discovered a group called the Miracles which was fronted by a charming young man named Smokey Robinson. Miracles singer Claudette Robinson, who married Smokey two years later in 1959, was there when Gordy first saw the group perform at the Jackie Wilson studio.

Members of Parliament have just voted overwhelmingly to approve Prime Minister Boris Johnson's Brexit plan by a vote of 358 to 234. Brexit's approval was widely expected following the conservative victory in the UK election last week. Brexit has been in gridlock for over three years. Former Prime Minister Theresa May has made several failed attempts to get Brexit through Parliament since the country voted in favor of Brexit in 2016. May ultimately failed to get a deal through, and she resigned in May over her inability to broker a deal that could win a majority of Parliament.

When it comes to impeachment, the House Democrats’ job is essentially over. The two articles before the chamber have passed, and Donald Trump is now impeached. The only obligations left to them are to notify the Senate of their conclusions, name managers of the process, and allow the Republican-led chamber to reach a verdict, which some of its members (including leadership) say they’ve already reached. It should hardly come as a shock that a legislative chamber full of lawmakers who have been outwardly skeptical of the drive to impeach Trump will take a dim view of the articles against him, but the inevitability

On December 20, 1941, the American Volunteer Group (AVG), better known by its nickname, the Flying Tigers, engaged in its first round of air-to-air combat when its fighters encountered Japanese “Sally” bombers. Just in case you do not know, the AVG was a group of American flyers under the command of Claire Chennault that flew for China against the Japanese. As you can tell by the date above, by the time the AVG got into combat, the U.S. was already at war with Japan, which kind of defeated the purpose of using “volunteers” from supposedly uninvolved countries. A similar situation occurred when Chinese “volunteers”

Spoiler alert: The House is going to impeach President Trump, and the Senate will acquit him. But you probably already knew that. Unless we step into an alternate reality, in which Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) bursts into gales of laughter and begs Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) to please keep talking, it seems likely the Senate won’t call any White House officials to testify during the trial. McConnell said as much on Tuesday in response to Minority Leader Charles E. Schumer’s (D-N.Y.) request that the Senate call four witnesses — including acting White House chief of staff Mick Mulvaney and former national security adviser John Bolton.

Last year, many Texans comported themselves in an admirable, even heroic manner. But too many other Texans seemed quite happy to try to compensate for all that decency by acting in an idiotic, even malevolent fashion. Craven politicians, heartless corporations, inebriated marksmen, clueless members of the fourth estate, and a whole host of individuals who really, really should not be allowed around children—those were the people and entities who seemed all too intent on confirming the worst stereotypes the rest of the world has about Texas. And perhaps inventing a few new ones. Let’s take a moment to remember a whole bunch of nincompoops—and worse!—we hope to someday forget.

A proposal for a $569 million bond to build two new high school buildings in Midland failed by 25 votes in the November election, a margin slim enough it set off calls for a recount. The ballots were recounted manually, and to the delight of Midland ISD officials, the results flipped and the proposal passed by a margin of 11 votes. But last week, a Midland elections staffer found a box on the bottom of a shelf in the office containing 836 ballots that weren't tallied in the recount. Those votes threaten to again reverse the election results, which school officials are counting on

Earth's magnetic north pole, which has been wandering faster than expected in recent years, has now crossed the prime meridian. Magnetic north has been lurching away from its previous home in the Canadian Arctic toward Siberia at a rate of about 34 miles (55 kilometers) a year over the past two decades. The latest model of the Earth's magnetic field, released Dec. 10 by the National Centers for Environmental Information and the British Geological Survey, predicts that this movement will continue, though likely at a slower rate of 25 miles (40 km) each year. This model is used to calibrate GPS and other navigation measurements.

For proponents of a single-payer health-care system, there were few arguments in its favor more compelling than the virtual ubiquity of state-funded health-insurance regimes across the industrialized world. Those advocates dismissed the idea that the unique conditions that prevail in the U.S. render such a system politically untenable, stressing the moral duty on Americans to expand insurance coverage over impediments like cost and feasibility. Those advocates have since received a real-world education in what Americans are prepared to accept from their health care system, and it’s not Medicare-for-all.

Flake, who represented Arizona in the U.S. Senate from 2013 until 2019, urged his former colleagues to undergo a “simple test,” which involves questioning how former President Barack Obama would have been treated under the same circumstances. “What if President Barack Obama had engaged in precisely the same behavior?” Flake asked rhetorically.

The word “white,” however, will remain lowercase when referring to people with “light-colored skin, especially those of European descent,” the newspaper said. The publication explained that capitalizing the term “Black” is necessary because it is a reflection of shared cultures and experiences, like foods, languages and music.” The word “white” however will remain lowercase because it merely refers to the physical description of people “whose backgrounds may spring from many different cultures,”

David Ignatius must be kidding: Who might deliver us from this national train wreck? Who could restore a sense of balance to the Senate trial so that, whatever its outcome, it doesn’t feed Trump’s false narrative of victimization and populist rage? There’s one obvious answer: Sen. Mitt Romney of Utah, the 2012 Republican presidential nominee and custodian of what remains of his party’s moral and political balance. Counting on Mitt Romney for political courage and moral leadership is always a bad bet. Romney has a very safe seat in Utah, so in theory he could afford to take risks, but taking political risks is exactly what Romney never does.
