BIASED Media Coverage of AGs in Trouble

MSM Session v Holder

SESSIONS: On March 2, 2017, Democrats accused Trump’s Attorney General Jeff Sessions of misleading Congress during his confirmation hearing. While admitting that the statement Sessions made to Congress was not actually false, the MSM still devoted more than 1 hour and 12 minutes to the subject.

HOLDER: On June 28, 2012, Obama’s then-Attorney General Eric Holder became the first Cabinet member to be held in contempt of Congress for withholding documents from the House investigation into the Obama administration’s Fast and Furious scandal. The MSM yawned.

3/7 UPDATE: I just corrected the title on this graphic.  It originally said, “Media covers Attorney Generals” which I realized today was wrong on two counts.  “Media” is plural, so it’s “they cover”, not “it covers.”  Also the correct plural for Attorney General in American English is “Attorneys General.”  Sorry ’bout that.  I actually knew those things yesterday.  Dunno where my brain got off to OR WHY BOB DIDN’T CATCH IT! lol

Dayum, She’s Quick

The original plan was to call this post Obama Gate, Tower Gate, Deep State Gate. My dear friend CtH, ever vigilant, did her post as I enjoyed my morning nap.

What is disgusting is that Obama has never gone away. He is staying in Washington, running the covert acts of sedition the left thinks are going to bring down the Trump administration. The faithful whores in the media are in full vigor, advancing every unsubstantiated, demonstrably false assertion from the left while at the same time screaming when Trump claims his lines were tapped before the election to PROVE IT!!

Here’s the List: More Than a Dozen Proven Victims of Obama’s Many Wiretaps
It is not unfounded that former President Obama would wire tap President Trump during the election process. This is because he has done this before. Here is a list of individuals who were wire tapped by the Obama Administration.
Obama is no stranger to wire tapping. His administration tapped phones and computers of friends and foe alike.

Ask James Rosen and Angela Merkel about Obama Spying
Clapper may think that the Obama administration is incapable of such an act, the same Obama administration that used the IRS in a way Richard Nixon only dreamed of in targeting the Tea Party movement. Such an act would indeed make Watergate look like, well, a third-rate burglary. Clapper forgets as well how the NSA and the Obama administration spied on world leaders, starting with German Chancellor Angela Merkel:
JAMES CLAPPER IS A PROVEN LIAR

Edward Snowden later released classified documents that proved Clapper lied to Congress.
On Sunday Clapper denied reports that the Obama administration was spying on Donald Trump.

Chris Coons walkback: “I have no hard evidence of collusion” between Trump world and Russians
Contradicts prior suggestion of possibly incriminating transcripts
DOOGIE HOWSER WENT BALD AND GOT A SENATOR JOB
As if proof were needed at the time of an accusation for a media that has put Trump on trial for the last 6-8 months based on innuendo about Trump campaign ties to Russia. As pointed out repeatedly, there is zero proof in the public record of such media and Democrat accusations, and no proof was demanded by the media.
In fact, Democratic Senator Chris Coons recently suggested there were incriminating transcripts of calls involving Trump or his associates:


Yet on Fox News Sunday this morning, Coons admitted (as Sen. Tom Cotton also stated on the show) that there is no hard evidence of collusion:

DeepStateGate: Trump Ends the Wiretapping Innuendo Game by Dealing Himself In
The White House is placing a substantial bet on what Congress will uncover. Don’t expect those cards to be dealt swiftly because such investigations take time. The Obama administration was highly adept at stalling investigations until the Democratic media could pronounce them “old news” and ignore the outcome.
The Trump administration can distinguish itself by cooperating energetically with this one and helping it move forward quickly. Rest assured that no matter how long it takes, the media will never consider it “old news” as long as there remains any chance for anyone connected with the Trump 2016 campaign to get in trouble over contacts with the Russians.

Obama Admin Source Confirms Wiretapping Was Conducted
A source inside the Obama administration acknowledged that wiretapping was conducted to spy on Trump during the 2016 Presidential election.
“Democrat Kathy Arue: “My sources from the White House told me, she thinks it’s all true. She said, um there were concerns that Trump-and this is from the White House and the administration inside the White House…there were concerns that Trump and his surrogates may have been colluding with the Russians and a possible bargaining chip to influence the election, therefore a wiretap was conducted.”
That’s a load of crap.
The Obama administration knew there were no Trump ties to Russia that is just the excuse they are using now to try to cover for their illegal activity.

Holder Admits to Coup Led By Obama

Media Hypocrisy: Jeff Sessions and Russia vs. Eric Holder in Contempt of Congress
We spend a lot of our time correcting misreporting, slopping reporting, and reporting presented as objective when it clearly is not.
Increasingly, it’s apparent the attempt to oust newly-minted Attorney General Sessions was a good, old-fashioned media hit job. Who was behind it, we don’t know. These things seldom happen on their own, especially in the age of a completely incurious press.
The good folks over at the Media Research Center studied media coverage of the Sessions incident and compared it with the amount of coverage previous Attorney General Eric Holder received when he was in contempt of Congress. The results? Well, they’re pretty much exactly what you’d expect them to be, sadly.
Seven times more coverage was devoted to Sessions.
New Acting AG Will Enforce Trump Immigration Order
REMEMBER SALLY YATES? SHE WAS THE ASSISTANT AG WHO WAS FIRED FOR COUNTERMANDING TRUMP’S IMMIGRATION ORDER.
HAD SHE NOT BEEN FIRED, SHE WOULD HAVE BEEN INVESTIGATING THE BULLSHIT CLAIMS SESSIONS COLLUDED WITH THE RUSSKIES. DO YOU THINK THAT WAS NOT OBAMA’S PLAN?
New Acting AG Will Enforce Trump Immigration Order

Report: Trump furious that Sessions recused himself
SESSIONS IS THE KIND OF HONORABLE MAN WHO WOULD BE STAMPEDED BY THE MOB LUSTING FOR MORE SCALPS.
TRUMP SAYS,’SCREW YOU!’
Sessions said he made his decision after consulting with officials at the Justice Department, who recommended he should no longer participate in the probe.
Washington Post reporter Robert Costa tweeted Saturday morning that President Trump left the White House “in a fury” on Friday, “fuming about [Jeff] Sessions’s recusal and telling aides that Sessions shouldn’t have recused himself,” also calling the reports of his meeting “bull.”
ABC News also reported that Trump went “ballistic,” on Friday, also over the Sessions news
Hours before the Sessions press conference, Trump threw his full support behind his embattled attorney general, who was a loyal campaign surrogate, and insisted he should not recuse himself from the inquiry.
Trump officials have repeatedly dismissed the Sessions accusations as partisan attacks against the president in the aftermath of his speech.

Pence Goes On The WARPATH After The AP Release His Wife’s Email Address
In a low blow move that wouldn’t surprise anyone that was remotely plugged into the political environment, the utterly one-sided media lap dogs of the Democrats pulled off a move that cements the reason why Americans are disgusted with the institution that should be working for the people instead of a political party.
That email address was sent out Friday, contained within the 29 pages of old AOL emails that were released to the public by the Indianapolis Star. They themselves obtained the emails through an open information request.
The Vice President was furious when he found out… And he and his wife found out the ugly way when emails began to pour into her account, filled with malicious messages
DEMOCRATS DON’T GIVE A DAMN ABOUT THE COUNTRY…REVENGE, HARASS, DESTROY BY ANY MEANS NECESSARY, LEGAL OR NOT

Trump wiretap charge flummoxes law enforcement officials as FBI head reportedly asks DOJ to reject claim
WHY IS THIS JACKASS STILL HERE?
“How low has President Obama gone to tapp [sic] my phones during the very sacred election process. This is Nixon/Watergate. Bad (or sick) guy!” he tweeted.
Trump’s charge also left many in the White House and Justice Department confused and scrambling over the weekend to find any kind of factual backup for the president’s accusations.
Also Sunday, the New York Times reported that FBI Director James Comey asked the Justice Department to publicly reject Trump’s assertion. According to the Times, Comey argued that Trump’s claim falsely implied that the FBI had broken the law. The Justice Department had not issued any such statement as of Sunday evening.

#ObamaGate Is a Lot More than a Hashtag
Forget the usual smokescreen of hyper-partisan blather from Chuck Schumer on “Meet the Press” or the myriad calls for Trump’s head from the usual press suspects and consider the situation: Congressional committees, the FBI, not to mention numerous avid media organizations and who knows who else (NSA? CIA? ASPCA?) have been investigating putative Trump-Russia collusion for some time now and come up with… exactly nothing.
Are they likely to come up with something of significance at this point? Almost certainly not.

Leaks and unnamed sources fuel media’s plan to destroy Trump
To judge by their scattershot approach, the conspirators are fishing for a bombshell. The fallback goal is to inflict death by a thousand cuts.
Already they’ve gotten one scalp and part of another. Gen. Mike Flynn is gone, and Attorney General Jeff Sessions is wounded. Each made a mistake that obscured a larger truth: Somebody in the government has been spying on Trump’s team and giving top secret information to anti-Trump media outlets.

Flashback: First FISA Request on Trump Tower Came After Clinton and AG Lynch Met Privately on Tarmac
Was it coincidence or an indication of things to come?
Snakes on a Plane.
On June 27th of 2016, Bill Clinton met secretly with Obama Attorney General Loretta Lynch at the Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport.
A week later FBI Director James Comey laid out in a press conference the many scandalous activities taken by Hillary Clinton while she was President Obama’s Secretary of State and then he said the famous words:
“Our judgment is that no reasonable prosecutor would bring such a case.”
We now know that the meeting between Bill Clinton and Attorney General Lynch occurred at about the same time that the Obama administration filed a request with the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISA) to monitor communications involving Donald Trump and several advisers.
No evidence is found — but the wiretaps continued, ostensibly for national security reasons, Andrew McCarthy at National Review later notes.
The Obama administration was monitoring an opposing presidential campaign using the high-tech surveillance powers of the federal intelligence services.

The Silent Coup

Barack Obama made Americans suffer for eight agonizing years. He got so good at it, he decided to continue his seditious ways after he had officially lost the power to screw us over.  He set up headquarters two miles from the White House (the one that slaves built, you know) after leaving plenty of land mines set to go off as Trump was trying to begin repairing the damage.

The steady drip, drip, drip of information has already cost Trump one of his cabinet members.  The shadow government now has its sights set on Attorney General Sessions … over nothing that every Democrats senator hasn’t done.  The difference is that the leftstream media hounds actually fake outrage over the non-crimes of Republicans while totally ignoring the actual crimes of Democrats.

Mark Levin: This Is The Real Scandal – Obama’s ‘Silent Coup’ vs. Trump

1. They surveilled the Trump campaign
2. They changed the FISA rules to give information to multiple agencies not just NSA, thus making it easier to leak, which leak it they did.
3. They pressed the alleged Russian connections and made sure the media got the information in order to undermine the campaign and later the administration.
4. They organized the subsequent protests against Trump.

Clean house and start investigating Obama.

Trump Calls Out Obama For Surveillance Of Him And Trump Campaign

Trump tweeted that the former president had been spying on him in October, a month before his election victory.

‘Terrible! Just found out that Obama had my ‘wires tapped’ in Trump Tower just before the victory. Nothing found. This is McCarthyism!’

McCarthyism, which the president used in his first tweet, is the practice of making accusations of subversion or treason without proper regard for evidence.

Top Obama adviser to Trump: ‘No president can order a wiretap’

BEING A LIBERAL MEANS YOU CAN LIE WITH A STRAIGHT FACE. OBAMA FLOUTED THE LAW FROM THE DAY HE FIRST DARKENED THE DOORS OF THE PEOPLE’S HOUSE.

“No President can order a wiretap. Those restrictions were put in place to protect citizens from people like you,” Ben Rhodes tweeted Saturday morning.

He also said “only a liar” could make the case, as Trump suggested, that Obama wire tapped Trump Tower ahead of the election.

NEVER UNDERESTIMATE WHAT A FALLEN IDOL IS CAPABLE OF.

Obama guy Ben Rhodes, who LIED to get the Iran Deal passed, says Trump is wrong
Can president “order” a wiretap on citizens? Well, he can ask for a FISA [foreign intelligence surveillance] court to wiretap citizens, which is what some reports say he did on Trump and his aides. So is Rhodes purposely lying here to smear Trump?

OF COURSE HE IS.

This is the same scumbag who LAUGHED about lying to idiot reporters about the Iran Deal to get it passed. AND he openly mocked them about it in the New York friggin’ Times. Do you think a scumbag who lied to get the Iran Deal passed MIGHT JUST be lying about this to make Trump look bad? Yeah, probably.

Peter Schweizer: Trump vs. Clintons’ Russia ties (guess who always got a free pass)
Bill and Hillary Clinton received large sums of money directly and indirectly from Russian officials while Hillary Clinton was Secretary of State. Bill Clinton was paid a cool $500,000 (well above his normal fee) for a speech in Moscow in 2010. Who footed the bill? An investment firm in Moscow called Renaissance Capital, which boasts deep ties to Russian intelligence. The Clinton Foundation itself took money from Russian officials and Putin-connected oligarchs.

Leading Conservatives Predicted This Last Week: Obama Is Behind Illegal Leaks on Trump and Russia
A couple of the more prominent conservative pundits in the media are suggesting that former President Obama may be behind the classified leaks coming out of the government surrounding the Russian connections with the Trump campaign.

Rush added that “the left, which is run by Obama and Hillary and the hierarchy of the Democrat party, is doing everything they can to undermine, sabotage, and to prevent Trump from implementing his agenda. There’s no question about it.”

THEY NEVER STOP ATTACKING…THEY HAVE NO IDEAS, JUST VIOLENCE.

The Next Target In The Coup Attempt? Dems Attack Pence For ‘Private Email Account’ As Governor
A White House spokeswoman said Friday that Vice President Mike Pence ‘did everything to the letter of the law’ after public records revealed that he used a private email account to conduct public business as Indiana’s governor.

Comparing that mini-scandal to Hillary Clinton’s more expansive problems stemming from her use of a private email server while she ran the State Department, said Sarah Sanders, is ‘apples to oranges.’

‘There’s light years of difference,’ she told reporters aboard Air Force One.

Media Trying To Push This Pic Of Hillary To Whip Up Attack On Pence

It appears irony is not lost on Hillary Clinton, as a photograph of her emerged on Friday reading a newspaper headlined with Mike Pence’s use of a personal email to conduct government business.

Her face appeared frozen and incredulous to learn that the vice president was embroiled in a similar controversy to her own infamous email server scandal.

Franken, my dear, I don’t give a damn

From Stilton’s new site @ http://stiltonsplace.blogspot.com/

2017_03-03-franken-by-stilton

“We don’t know all the details of the accusations against Attorney General Jeff Sessions because, and we state this firmly and for the record, we don’t give a rat’s ass.

“For Sessions to have taken part in a Russian conspiracy to elect Donald Trump, there would have to have been a Russian conspiracy to elect Donald Trump. Not only is there no evidence of this, but the whole premise makes no sense.

“Whereas Trump was simply free-associating about the possibility of a better relationship with the Kremlin while on the stump, Hillary quietly approved the sale of 20% of America’s uranium reserves to the Russians. Moreover, with her bungled Russian “reset” program as Secretary of State, Hillary had already clearly demonstrated to Putin that, if elected, she would be far easier to manipulate than the wildcard Trump.

“We’re hoping that Jeff Sessions stands tough against the current accusations and that Trump stands behind him. The “Russian Conspiracy” is nonsense of a high order…and the last resort of a failing and flailing political party.”

Like Maggots to Carrion

OK, maybe I could have been a bit more sensitive, but this gets so tiresome. Give them the slightest opportunity and they respond like a Pavlovian animal. Their actions are as repulsive as they are predictable.

Sessions met with Russian envoy twice last year, encounters he later did not disclose
THE DEMS PARLAYED THIS INTO: HE LIED!! HE LIED!! HE MUST STEP DOWN! IMPEACH TRUMP!!
In a statement issued Wednesday night, Sessions said he “never met with any Russian officials to discuss issues of the campaign. I have no idea what this allegation is about. It is false.”
Justice officials said Sessions met with Kislyak on Sept. 8 in his capacity as a member of the armed services panel rather than in his role as a Trump campaign surrogate.
“He was asked during the hearing about communications between Russia and the Trump campaign — not about meetings he took as a senator and a member of the Armed Services Committee,” Flores said.

Pelosi calls for Sessions’s resignation
“Jeff Sessions lied under oath during his confirmation hearing before the Senate. Under penalty of perjury, he told the Senate Judiciary Committee, ‘I have been called a surrogate at a time or two in that campaign, and I did not have communications with the Russians.’ We now know that statement is false,” Pelosi said in a statement.
“Now, after lying under oath to Congress about his own communications with the Russians, the Attorney General must resign. Sessions is not fit to serve as the top law enforcement officer of our country and must resign.”

Cummings says Sessions should step down over conversations with Russian ambassador
 “Attorney General Sessions should resign immediately, and there is no longer any question that we need a truly independent commission to investigate this issue.”
The Washington Post on Wednesday reported that Sessions spoke once privately with Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak. He also spoke with Kislyak and other ambassadors during an event in July.

Manchin: Sessions should resign if he lied about Russia contacts
The only Senate Democrat who voted to confirm Jeff Sessions for attorney general says Sessions should resign if he misled Congress about his meetings with a Russian ambassador last year.
Sen. Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.) made the comments to The Daily Beast as Democrats step up their calls for Sessions to resign, or at least recuse himself from any investigations related to the Trump campaign and Russia.

Warren Joins Dems in Call For Sessions to Resign: ‘This Is Not Fake News’
Sen. Elizabeth Warren is joining Reps. Nany Pelosi and Elijah Cummings in calling for U.S. Attorney Jeff Sessions to step down after a Washington Post report revealed that he spoke with Russia’s ambassador to the U.S. twice over the last year.
“It’s a simple q: ‘Have you been in contact with anyone connected to any part of the Russian government about the 2016 election?'”
“Jeff Sessions answered ‘No.’ Turns out he met with the Russian Ambassador. Two months before the election.”
“This is not normal. This is not fake news. This is a very real & serious threat to the national security of the United States.”

The left remains blissfully ignorant that their ad hominem attacks on the president and his Cabinet accomplishes little except to expose them as petty, petulant whiners who have no interest in the welfare of the country or its people, rather advancing their own personal vendettas against those they lost power to.

Be Careful What You Wish For

One thing is clear. If the miserable slug from Nevada had not undone the filibuster in his zeal to get rafts of Obama judicial nominees, President Trump would not have a single cabinet member confirmed. Not a one.

  • Education Secretary: Betsy DeVos confirmed on a voted 51-50.
  • Attorney General: Jeff Sessions confirmed 52-47.
  • HHS Secretary: Tom Price confirmed 52-47.

To the surprise of absolutely no one, the injunction against the travel ban was upheld by the ninth circuit by a margin of 3-0.

Sessions had not yet been confirmed and the lawyers from the Justice Department who argued the case were holdovers from the Obama regime, so there was no real motivation to put much effort in their argument.

It is paramount that the Republicans get Neil Gorsuch confirmed to SCOTUS before the case is heard there. With a 4-4 split, if Kennedy sides with the originalists in deciding such action is within the purview of presidential power, the lower court ruling would stand. It will eventually be reinstated, but the when is unknown.

Dianne Feinstein Regrets Filibuster Reform as Senate Confirms More Trump Cabinet Picks
The Senate confirmed Rex Tillerson as Secretary of State with 56 votes; Jeff Sessions as Attorney General with 52 votes; and Betsy DeVos, who barely reached a majority of 51 votes without Vice President Mike Pence’s deciding vote to confirm her as Secretary of Education.

“As we look back, it may well have been better to not have changed the rules.”

Some Democrats remain unapologetic about the decision, however. Sen. Tim Kaine (D-Va.) told IJR he maintains that filibuster reform was essential:

“At the time I thought, ‘I might serve here with a Republican president and I might serve here when there’s a Republican majority.’  We were in a situation where positions that were really important were going vacant for years at a time.”

9th Circuit Refuses to Reinstate Immigration Pause; ‘We Beat You,’ Gov. Tells Trump
Moments after the ruling, Trump tweeted, “SEE YOU IN COURT,” adding that “THE SECURITY OF OUR NATION IS AT STAKE!”

In response, Washington Gov. Jay Inslee, a Democrat who leads one of the states that challenged the ban, said: “Mr. President, we just saw you in court, and we beat you.”

The court battle is far from over. An appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court seems likely. That could put the decision in the hands of a divided court that has a vacancy.

Trump’s nominee, Neil Gorsuch, is unlikely to be confirmed in time to take part in any consideration of the ban, which was set to expire in 90 days unless it is changed.

Schumer: ‘We Think We Have Done a Real Service to America’ by Vilifying Trump’s Nominees
Senate Democrats flew a restaurant worker all the way from Los Angeles to Washington on Thursday, to help them portray President Trump’s nominee for Labor Secretary not only as “unqualified,” but also as someone who steals money from workers; looks the other way when workers are sexually harassed; forces people to work for free; punishes them for calling in sick; and fights against raising the minimum wage.

“Puzder called us the worst of the worst and the bottom of the pool. I work myself to the bone just to survive. Why would we want someone who think so little of workers in charge of policies that could impact all of us?” the allegedly victimized woman asked.

On Thursday, Schumer told the same news conference, “It’s disgraceful to put ‘secretary of labor’ and ‘Puzder’ in the same sentence, given his views.”

Schumer said Democrats hope they can force the withdrawal of Puzder’s nomination, but even if they can’t, it’s all about laying the groundwork to stymie the Trump administration:

While You Were Sleeping, Tom Price Was Confirmed As Health And Human Services Secretary
When Jeff Sessions was confirmed to be the 84th Attorney General of the United States Wednesday night, a vote was held to move Rep. Tom Price’s (R-GA) Health and Human Services nomination forward for a final vote.  Around 2:15 A.M this morning Price was confirmed in a 52-47 vote.

Liberal Ninth Circuit Court Is Overturned in Recent Years 80% of Time

The Ninth Circuit Court ruled against President Trump and continued to block his travel ban on Thursday.  The Ninth Circuit is the most liberal court in the country — and is the most reversed court in the country.

2010, perhaps seeking to reclaim its position at the top of the heap, the Ninth Circuit was reversed a startling 19 times (79 percent), three times as many reversals as most circuits had cases before the Supreme Court. The same pattern continued in the 2011 (71 percent) and 2012 terms (86 percent), when the Ninth Circuit was reversed more than twice as many times as most circuits had cases before the Court.
