Smear Tactics Against Conservatives Go into Overdrive

Starting with president Richard Nixon in 1968 the liberal media in America have been perfecting the art of character assassination of Republicans and conservatives.

Today anyone vaguely associated with president Trump can be ruined whether it be an aide, a political supporter or even his wife.

Who could forget how the media savaged Melania Trump when she spoke a few sentences in her speech at the Republican convention in July 2016 that had been lifted from another speech. This happened even though a speechwriter admitted that she had made the error in assembling the speech.

Even president Trump’s own White House doctor Rear Admiral Ronny Jackson has come under vicious assault. First, here is Wikipedia describing the accomplished life of Dr. Jackson:

Jackson is a board-certified diplomate of the American Board of Emergency Medicine and is designated as a fellow of the American Academy of Emergency Medicine. He currently holds faculty clinical appointments with the Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences and the Harvard School of Medicine-affiliated Beth Israel Deaconess Disaster Medicine Fellowship Program.

Jackson began his active duty naval service in 1995 at Naval Medical Center Portsmouth , where he completed his internship in transitional medicine in 1996. He went on to become the honor graduate of the Navy’s Undersea Medical Officer Program in Groton, Connecticut. Qualified in submarine and hyperbaric medicine, he subsequently took on operational assignments including: instructor at the Naval Diving and Salvage Training Center in Panama City, Florida; detachment officer in charge and diving medical officer at Explosive Ordnance Disposal Mobile Unit 8 in Sigonella, Italy; and diving safety officer at the Naval Safety Center in Norfolk.

In 2001, Jackson returned to Portsmouth Naval Medical Center to begin his residency in emergency medicine, finishing at the top of his class and receiving the honor graduate designation. Upon completing his residency in 2004, he was assigned as clinical faculty in the Emergency Medicine Residency Program at the Naval Hospital in Portsmouth, Virginia. In 2005, he joined the 2nd Marine Logistics Group, Combat Logistics Regiment 25, in Camp Lejeune, North Carolina. From there he deployed in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom as the emergency medicine physician in charge of resuscitative medicine for a forward deployed Surgical Shock Trauma Platoon in Taqaddum, Iraq.

In 2006, while still in Iraq, Jackson was selected as a White House physician.

Wow. Impressive, right? Now we have seen media allegations against Jackson that disqualified him from possibly become the director of the Veterans Administration and that permanently smeared his reputation.

In contrast to the known history of Dr. Jackson as mentioned above, however, these media charges, echoed by Democrat US senator Jon Tester of Montana, came out of the blue, were only around for a few days, are totally unproven, and originated from unnamed sources. CNN reported:

The White House medical unit frequently functioned as a “grab and go” clinic where mid-level staffers to the most senior officials could obtain prescription drugs without being examined by a doctor, casually pick up the powerful sleeping aid Ambien even for their children, and get drugs that were not prescribed to the person actually taking the medication.

These examples, described to CNN by five of the medical unit’s former and current employees and which appear to represent the more problematic practices there, were endorsed by Rear Adm. Ronny Jackson, a doctor.

Jackson withdrew his nomination to lead the Department of Veterans Affairs Thursday morning in response to an avalanche of allegations of questionable behavior. But the 50-year-old US Navy rear admiral remains President Donald Trump’s physician and the head of an office that treats the first family, Vice President Mike Pence, members of the Trump Cabinet and other senior government officials.

The allegations shine light on a little-known office on White House grounds skirting some of the most basic medical protocols for years, including under former President Barack Obama. The medical unit serves some White House staffers who work around the clock on high-stakes issues and are unable to easily access their own personal physicians for ailments.

Four former and current White House medical unit employees — all of whom requested anonymity to discuss behavior they witnessed and were aware of during their tenures — said prescription medication was handed out readily. In fact, sometimes even the most basic medical consultation was unnecessary.

One person who worked at the medical unit under both the Obama and Trump administrations said there was such a “loose control of the controlled medications” that one high-profile Obama administration official who was leaving the White House went to the medical unit for Provigil. The drug promotes alertness and helps individuals stay awake.

It was treated as a “parting gift,” the person said, and the outgoing administration official was given around 20 Provigil pills. It is not clear whether this official was ever seen by a White House doctor.

Another of the sources said they witnessed similar requests for pills from outgoing White House staffers. They also recalled being present when one Obama White House staffer came into the outpatient clinic and demanded: “I need to pick up a Z-Pak for myself and my wife.”

Z-Pak is the common name for Zithromax, an antibiotic that treats infections. The doctor at the medical unit rejected the request, insisting that the staffer first receive an examination. The doctor was particularly concerned about serious cardiac issues that can result from taking Z-Pak. The staffer grew frustrated, this person recalled, and responded: “Dr. Jackson said I can just pick it up and I don’t have to be seen.”

Moments later, another colleague walked past the doctor, grabbed the Z-Paks and handed them to the White House staffer.

OK, so who says that any of these charges are true? does not believe them. Do these allegations comport in any way with the accomplished resume of Jackson?

No. And is it not the responsibility of the accusers to prove their charges rather than the responsibility of the accused to disprove them?

Of course, but this principal tenet of our justice system (innocent until proven guilty) is irrelevant in the world of liberal character assassination. Another unsourced charge said that Jackson had gotten drunk on a foreign trip and acted badly.

So where is the proof?

Answer: There is none. Not a shred. Jackson has denied all charges and CNN will never tell us who the sources are. And unless we have proof that they are real we can only assume that they are fabricated as part of the War on Trump. And they have done their job perfectly to destroy the character of a fine man like Rear Admiral Jackson.

This is the Democrat way. Smear, smear, smear. Ruin good people in the name of political power. It is disgraceful, as president Trump has said correctly many times over.

Final note: Watch for president Trump to take special aim at Jon Tester who is running for re-election this coming November in a state, Montana, that voted strongly for Trump.

Update: Trump has called on Tester to resign. Good move.

Trump Re-Election Looking Better and Better

The Gallup polling organization reports:

… The percentage of voters who say Trump deserves re-election is essentially identical to that of Bill Clinton and Barack Obama at the time of the 1994 and 2010 midterm elections, respectively.

Trump’s approval ratings have been significantly worse than those of his predecessors at similar points in their presidencies. And his re-elect figures do not match those of Clinton (40% in April 1994) and Obama (46% in March 2010) in the spring of their first midterm election years. However, by the time voters cast ballots in those presidents’ first midterms that fall, the percentage of voters believing Clinton and Obama deserved to be re-elected had fallen to the same level Trump is at now.

So let’s analyze this: First, Gallup is much like these “media polls” (CNN, New York Times, CBS, etc.). These polling organizations can get their polls to say anything they want by the types of questions they ask, whom they ask, etc. And these polls consistently make president Trump look bad.

On the other hand the Rasmussen poll, which is the most accurate poll of the last decade, puts Trump’s current job approval at 50%.

Yet even Gallup says that Trump is at the same place in its own poll that Clinton and Obama were in 1994 and 2010. And then both Clinton and Obama were re-elected in, respectively, 1996 and 2012. If you add this to Trump’s 50% approval number in Rasmussen and it appears that Trump is headed for re-election, particularly as the economy improves.

It is also important to note that president Trump has similar approval numbers to Clinton and Obama even after Trump has received massively negative media coverage while Clinton and Obama got fawning coverage. This shows that the Silent Majority is speaking up and that the media no longer can control what we all think.

Trump will also get a big bump when the Russia probe comes up empty. Millions of voters are projecting their choices to vote Democrat in 2018 and 2020 on the assumption that Trump colluded with Russia. When that is shown to be false Trump will get a big boost in his approval numbers. So will Republicans in general.

Mueller is trying to drag out the investigation through the November mid-term elections in order to harm Trump and Republicans. But already Americans are tired of Mueller after seeing no results. By November they will understand what the truth is, to the benefit of president Trump.

Is Facebook Reaching out to Conservatives?

Facebook has been in the news over the last few months for brazenly seeking to censor conservatives. This has brought the wrath of Washington and the public down on Facebook and its founder Mark Zuckerberg.

It now appears that the threat of government regulation is leading Facebook to make some initial accommodations to conservatives. Breitbart News reports:

Facebook invited a number of conservative free market groups and D.C.-based thinktanks to a meeting regarding the company’s recent privacy scandals, according to a source with knowledge of the meeting.

… A source familiar with the matter told Breitbart News that they believe that the meeting mostly focused on what Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg said in his testimony before Congress, the future of privacy on the Internet, and public policy surrounding tech companies such as Facebook. The source told Breitbart News that it seemed as if Facebook was attempting to bring the conservative and Free market communities onto their side ahead of possible debates in Washington relating to the regulation of Facebook.

This looks like good news but it is only a start. We need to see action to stop the censorship and the only way to see action is to continue to put pressure on Facebook with the ultimate threat of government regulation.

Has Trump Solved ‘Global Warming’ Too?!

A website called Watts Up With That reports:

For some communities, April won’t just be memorable… it will might just go down in history. How? Well there are so many fascinating statistics to swoon over that we dug up! While doing some number crunching for Detroit Metropolitan International Airport, it wasn’t an eye opener that April has been about 10 F below seasonal norms. The normal monthly average daytime high is 59.1 F, we only got 49.7 as an average. Another stat that won’t come as a surprise is the lack of warmth — we have yet to crack 70ºF more than once this April in Detroit, Chicago and Buffalo!

Taking the final forecast days of April into consideration, we’re currently seeing a slight warm up that could help the averages take a slight bump up. Of course we will have to wait until the end of the month to officially declare it as ‘the coldest April on record’ as some minor fluctuations in the forecast will occur.

The overall weather pattern that we can blame is the jet stream that keeps taking a ride well to the south ushering cold Canadian air to the U.S. In fact, it’s been cold enough that we saw ice pellets accumulating in the middle of the month for the Southern Great Lakes

Obviously this means that president Trump not only has significantly improved the US economy, brought together the hostile factions in the Korean Peninsula and crushed ISIS, but now he has solved ‘global warming’ by shifting the jet stream!

Just kidding. But let us look at the facts that the ‘climate’ alarmists do not want us to know. Look at this from Breitbart News after years in which radical “greens” have claimed that we are in an unprecedented period of ‘global warming’:

Our planet has just experienced the most extreme two-year cooling event in a century. But where have you seen this reported anywhere in the mainstream media?

You haven’t, even though the figures are pretty spectacular. As Aaron Brown reports … at Real Clear Markets:

From February 2016 to February 2018 (the latest month available) global average temperatures dropped 0.56°C. You have to go back to 1982-84 for the next biggest two-year drop, 0.47°C—also during the global warming era. All the data in this essay come from GISTEMP Team, 2018: GISS Surface Temperature Analysis (GISTEMP). NASA Goddard Institute for Space Studies. This is the standard source used in most journalistic reporting of global average temperatures.

The 2016-18 Big Chill was composed of two Little Chills, the biggest five month drop ever (February to June 2016) and the fourth biggest (February to June 2017). A similar event from February to June 2018 would bring global average temperatures below the 1980s average. February 2018 was colder than February 1998.

To put this temperature drop in context, consider that this is enough to offset by more than half the entirety of the global warming the planet has experienced since the end of the 19th century.

Since the end of the Little Ice Age in the 1880s, the planet has warmed by about 0.8 degrees C. You might think that was not a particularly drastic rate of warming to worry about. You might also note that such a rate of warming is well precedented in periods throughout history, such as during the Minoan, Roman and Medieval warming periods. Nonetheless this 0.8 degrees C rise – 0.9 degrees C, at a push – is the terrible climatic event the alarmist establishment has been assuring these last few decades is the worst thing ever and something that should worry us awfully.

If you lived in the northern or northeastern United States since December 2017 you remember a cold, snowy Winter (3 feet of snow in March) and a miserable, cold Spring so far. Christmas and New Years were the most frigid two-week period in decades. This came after a cool Summer 2017 and cold, snowy Winter in 2017.

This is more proof that the theory of unprecedented ‘global warming’ allegedly caused by the burning of fossil fuels is nonsense, that global temperatures have been warming and cooling naturally for thousands of years and that this fluctuation has nothing to do with burning oil, coal or natural gas.
