The stakes are rising ……

On Monday we asked why the Democrats and liberals were using the impeachment word. “Where is the crime” we asked. Well since then new allegations have arisen and yesterday at least, if true, could rise to obstruction of justice.

There is no question in our mind of two things. President Trump’s ego continues to inflict damage on him. We don’t believe he can change. He thought running the government would be like running his business and it is not. For a guy who kept telling us how smart he is, well he surely isn’t doing things in office to prove that. Again if true, who would ask people to leave a meeting so he could talk to the FBI Director alone, and then proceed to encourage him to get past charges on a former cabinet member?
In business you might do that to try and close a deal, running the government is not a business.

That said, the MSM is on a witch hunt. They truly are after the President for two reasons. One he went after them in the campaign and second they were against him and sure he would lose. There is no fairness. Think about the coverage yesterday on the Comey notes they claim he wrote. They never saw the notes, only had someone read it to them on the phone. Do you think they covered (outside FoxNews) this the same way they did the Clinton meeting with Loretta Lynch on the tarmac? Wasn’t that possible obstruction of justice, too?

The assumption from the media is always the rumor is true. They run it so loud and often that even when proven untrue the general population believes it. As an example last week they reported Trump fired Comey because he asked for more money and resources for the Russian investigation. That proved untrue. How many people know that?
Then they reported over and over that Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein had “threatened to resign” over the firing. That was wrong. Yet for two days these stories dominated the news.
Now we have two more this week.
Did Trump release secret data to the Russians. The media says yes, the administration says no. The public is told he did.
Add the private meeting story today and who knows?

On the media:

With the MSM the general consensus is FoxNews leans right, Msnbc leans left and CNN claims it is right down the middle. We think Fox is closer to the center than given credit, and Msnbc is far left. With CNN we find that claim about “center” is laughable. Here’s a study from the Media Research Center (MRC) released yesterday that you won’t see on the MSM.

Highlights are:
“Much of that airtime consisted of interviews and panel discussions giving their assessment of Trump. MRC tallied 123 appearances by guests or panelists over the course of the day. Many of CNN’s analysts showed up in multiple newscasts, each of which would count as a separate appearance. (There were 77 unique appearances by people identified as CNN analysts or commentators, or 62% of all guests).

The vast majority of all of CNN’s guests that day (96, or 78% of the total) were Trump critics, compared to a handful of pro-Trump guests (just seven, or 6% of the total). Another 13 guests were neutral, and seven offered mixed assessments of the administration”.

For the day MRC reported 96 anti Trump analysts and 7 pro. For their “CNN’s on-air talent, the results were even more tilted, with 69 appearances by anti-Trump analysts, vs. just two for pro-Trump analysts”.

The MSM calls that “right down the middle”.

Chelsea Manning Leaves Prison:

You remember her when she was Bradley Manning and disclosed secret files to Wikileaks. Well, she is freed 28 years early because President Barack Obama, in one of his final acts, commuted her 35 year sentence.
Think about that. Manning damaged the U.S. with what he did. To liberals I guess it only matters if the material came from the DNC.

This release is as egregious to us as anything else we reported today.

Last Man Standing Pushback:

Petitions have been signed and boycotts of ABC started over cancellation of the one right leaning show on the networks. Show star Tim Allen tweeted this yesterday:
“Stunned and blindsided by the network I called home for the last six years”.

Monday Ratings:

Msnbc won the night, just another sign of the election tsunami coming.
Rachel Maddow is the clear number one show now.
