CNN’s Trump Derangement Syndrome, Pt. XLIV

Fear not good people, TDS — Trump Derangement Syndrome — is alive and well and, if drinking a carbonated beverage, will still make you spew it out your nose in laughter.

First, let’s look at the story from an — ahem — MSM viewpoint, as Philly.com writes:

CNN host Fareed Zakaria gets profane in uncensored Trump discussion

by Rob Tornoe

Late Friday night, CNN host Fareed Zakaria had some complaints about President Trump that revolved around one word in particular.

My. What might that be?

Appearing beside host Don Lemon on CNN Tonight in a discussion about the president’s unsubstantiated claims that President Obama wiretapped Trump Tower during the election, a frustrated Zakaria said Trump is “indifferent” to the truth before launching into a profanity-laced comment about the commander-in-chief.

Ah, the buttery goodness of the informed, cogent, rational, level-headed, sensitive, well-grounded cadre of Leftists.

After all, everyone knows emesis of that nature advances the argument of mainstream media outlets.

Right?

AG Sessions pulls the first swamp drain-plug, asking Obama attorneys to vacate

From Reuters.com:

Sessions asks 46 Obama-era U.S. attorneys to resign

by Joel Schectman and Mark Hosenball

U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions abruptly asked the remaining 46 chief federal prosecutors left over from the Obama administration to resign on Friday, including Manhattan U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara, who had been asked to stay on in November by then President-elect Donald Trump.

Although U.S. attorneys are political appointees, and the request from Trump’s Justice Department is part of a routine process, the move came as a surprise. Not every new administration replaces all U.S. attorneys at once.

Stop. Please notice what is emphasized and what is de-emphasized. It is emphasized that the event was a surprise. It was not much emphasized that it is customary for new administrations to replace the US attorneys as they are political appointments and thusly connected by prevailing political prairie winds. When Demorats do it, the process is all well and good. When a conservative or a Republican does it — as George Bush did — the process is now evil on its face. As expected, Leftist news organs went ballistic.

Gloriously, CNN’s Don Lemon saw a conspiracy behind every bush — or was it Bush? Sean Hannity knows all, sees all, and pulls the strings of DC from the Fox News studios.

Then there are the US attorneys who, apparently, are superior to others. From the WP.com:

New York federal prosecutor Preet Bharara says he was fired by Trump administration

by Devlin Barrett, Sari Horowitz and Robert Costa

Preet Bharara, one of the most high-profile federal prosecutors in the country, was fired Saturday after refusing to submit a letter of resignation as part of an ouster of the remaining U.S. attorneys who were holdovers from the Obama administration, according to people familiar with the matter.

“I did not resign,” Bharara said on Twitter. “Moments ago I was fired. Being the US Attorney in SDNY will forever be the greatest honor of my professional life.”

On Friday, acting deputy attorney general Dana Boente began making calls to 46 prosecutors asking for their resignations. Such requests are a normal part of a transition of power from one administration to another, and about half of the 94 Obama-era U.S. attorneys had already left their jobs.

Stop. So you see the difference in reporting? Reuters intimates it’s non-standard to expect letters of resignation and to accept them. WaPo says it’s a “normal part” of the transition.

Further, Mr Bharara believes he’s superior to other USAs and, as a result, doesn’t have to submit a letter of resignation. When subsequently fired he becomes shocked, shocked I tell you. Then, after wits collected, he stated he was proud of his “absolute independence.” This is LeftShockSpeak for “shit, I have to say something.”

Another point about USA Preet Bharara. It was he who prosecuted Dinesh D’Souza for election fraud (thank you, Pat Dollard) because D’Souza is a conservative and was a critic of the Obama administration — as was revealed in his newly-released case files.

“All animals are equal. Some animals are more equal than others.”

Could it also be that any number of these USAs should be removed due to incompetence? In my opinion that would be applicable to US Attorney Zachary Fardon in Chicago, who is noteworthy (or should I say infamous) for this:

Fardon became Chicago’s “top federal prosecutor on Oct. 23, 2013,” and has been heavily criticized for his lack of prosecution of federal gun law violations.

Fardon played up “his office’s role in fighting gun violence on the streets of Chicago” but a Chicago Sun-Times report on “court records in October 2016 showed federal weapons charges in Chicago had actually fallen slightly over the previous five years.”

The Sun-Times report squares with the experience of the Chicago Police Board. During a January 7 interview with NPR, police board chairwoman Lori Lightfoot said Chicago needed more federal prosecutions if they were ever to turn the tide on the city’s gun crime.

Lightfoot said:

We need to have more federal gun prosecutions in Chicago. Our federal partners from the U.S. attorney’s office, the ATF, the FBI need to be much more invested in this overall strategy. Chicago Police Department cannot tackle this issue by itself.

A final note of interest. Whilst the Demorats and Leftists wring their palsied hands over the terrible treatment by President Trump of the US Attorneys, President Clinton purified and cleansed the AG’s offices throughout the fruited plain in 1993 — including US Attorney for the Southern District of Alabama Jeff Sessions, who had been appointed by President Ronald Reagan and served President George H.W. Bush as well. Clinton ejected those USAs produced under Republican regimes — and had every bit of authority to do so. Let’s listen.

The bottom line is that none of this needs to be justified by the Trump administration. It’s how the game is played and the “mainstream media” or what I term the American Media Maggots have and will not tell you anything about the history of events like this. They want you to believe that everything occurs in a vacuum and is totally unprecedented. The American Media Maggots possess what I term a purposeful Historical Alzheimers.

That is why I say that the American Media Maggots have historically worked long and hard to earn their sobriquet of Fake News.

They are proud of the way they have acted and are acting now.

As conservatives, these common maneuvers are exactly what we expected of Donald Trump and, further, is precisely why he was elected.

“The spice must flow,” and the swamp must be drained.

Knife control: Japanese man kills 19, injures 26

When-Rocks-Are-OutlawedHad that occurred here in America, Barack Hussein Obaka and Loretta Lynch and Jerry Brown and Gavin Newsom and all the rest of the Leftists would still be bleating about gun control.

From CNN.com:

Japan knife attack: At least 19 dead

by Euan McKirdy and Emanuella Grinberg

(CNN)  At least 19 people were killed and 26 injured in a stabbing spree at a facility for disabled people west of Tokyo, making it one of Japan’s deadliest mass killings since World War II. Nine men and 10 women, ranging in age from 18 to 70, were killed in the attack.

Officer Satomi Kurihara of the Sagamihara Fire Department confirmed the death toll at the Tsukui Yamayuri-en facility in Sagamihara, a residential area approximately 40 kilometers (25 miles) west of the capital.
Satoshi Uematsu, a 26-year-old who worked at the facility until February, broke in through a window about 2 a.m. Tuesday (1 p.m. ET Monday), Kanagawa Prefecture officials said at a news conference.

Because, as we all know — and Leftists know this best of all — if we eliminate firearms wholesale, then violence will simply plummet and go away.  All will be well with the world, birds will sing, clouds will part and the sun will shine.

Gun-Control-at-the-Bar

“What’s the frequency, Kenneth?”  Dan Rather knows.

Yes, Leftists are in fact that naive.  Logic and the nature of humanity, as I’ve written before, eludes the deluded.

When firearms are eradicated, violence will cease.  Right?  But wait; what about Australia, where gun deaths are down but knife deaths are climbing.  Why might that be?  Let’s glance at China, where a knife is the weapon of choice and 130 persons were stabbed at random36 persons were stabbed and killed at a Chinese police station in 2013Eight children were killed by a knife-wielder in JapanEight people killed in South Korea41 people were stabbed by a 16-year-old in Berlin.  A 13-year-old girl was stabbed to death in the UK.  The knife is the UK “weapon of choice” for violence, as it is in Israel with Palestinians stabbing and killing Israeli citizensFBI data indicates you are more likely to be beaten, clubbed or stabbed to death than to be murdered using an AR-15 or any other rifle in the United States.

In Europe, guns are involved in 36 percent of murders and knives are involved in 43 percent.  Where is the cry for “knife control”?

Locally, there were a number of knife attacks last year.

Some other interesting statistics.

But let’s stop dancing around the issue of “gun control.”  Let’s get down to brass tacks: Demorats and Leftists want out-and-out gun confiscation.  Make no mistake about that.  Hillary Clinton and all other power elites have their own private police forces.  You don’t.  They have “theirs” and that is all they care about.

When you get down to it, Leftists and Demorats will only be satisfied when there exists the complete removal of firearms from American citizens.  The outright trampling of the Second Amendment.  What’s left?  Tire irons?  Knives?

But here’s one thing you won’t be able to do with a knife or a rock or a lamp or a baseball bat or a torch or a pitchfork: defend yourself against a government.  Oppose oppressive government regimes.  Governments, all governments, our government, will always be armed with heavy, military grade weapons.  Historically, our Second Amendment does not exist to allow Americans to hunt.  That’s a ridiculous claim when made by anyone.  The Second Amendment exists in America in order to resist tyranny in any form and that includes an over-reaching government, foreign or domestic.

Demorats and Leftists are not grounded in reality.  They are only versed in power and money.  The citizenry can be armed or it can be disarmed.  Those who are disarmed are called Proles, Serfs, Groundlings, Commoners.

In the meantime, criminals will still commit crimes, the mentally unstable will still be unstable, and Leftists will still be unable to grasp these fundamental concepts.

3 Baton Rouge officers killed; Obama bleats about gun control

Baton Rouge Officers Killed 7-17-2016Baton Rouge Police Department Officers Montrell Jackson, Brad Garafola, Matthew Gerald, stalked, ambushed and killed by black suspect.

It’s the customary Barack Hussein Obama response whenever guns are used in violence: gun control.  We need more gun control.  It’s the standard Mark I, Model I retort for Obama and Leftists and Demorats.  We need more gun control — though in the bulk of these cases the suspects did not violate the law and would not have otherwise been able to be stopped.  “More gun control” simply penalizes one group of persons: the law abiding, not the law breaking.  This simple fact completely eludes the deluded.

There should therefore be truck control for France, pressure cooker control for Massachusetts and knife control for much of the rest of the world.

Pause here for just a moment.

Let’s envision a gun-free US.  Then let’s envision Australia, where gun deaths are down but knife deaths are climbing.  Why might that be?  Let’s glance at China, where a knife is the weapon of choice and 130 persons were stabbed at random36 persons were stabbed and killed at a Chinese police station in 2013Eight children were killed by a knife-wielder in JapanEight people killed in South Korea41 people were stabbed by a 16-year-old in Berlin.  A 13-year-old girl was stabbed to death in the UK.  The knife is the UK “weapon of choice” for violence, as it is in Israel with Palestinians stabbing and killing Israeli citizensFBI data indicates you are more likely to be beaten, clubbed or stabbed to death than to be murdered using an AR-15 or any other rifle in the United States.

Yet the meme continues, pushed, shoved and agendized by Mr Obama, Leftists and our American Media Maggots.

In Europe, guns are involved in 36 percent of murders and knives are involved in 43 percent.  Where is the cry for “knife control”?
KNIFE CONTROLBut here’s one thing you won’t be able to do with a knife: defend yourself against a government.  Oppose oppressive government regimes.  Governments, all governments, our government, will always be armed with heavy, military grade weapons.  Historically, our Second Amendment does not exist to allow Americans to hunt.  That’s a ridiculous claim when made by anyone.  The Second Amendment exists in America in order to resist tyranny in any form and that includes an over-reaching government, foreign or domestic.

We all know what occurs when you take a knife to a gun fight.  The only solution to an evil person with a gun is another gun.  Period.  Most of these recent mass killers shoot themselves or surrender when confronted with armed resistance.  They are completely aware of so-called “gun free zones.”  They know what will happen when law enforcement arrives.

As the great Divider-In-Chief, here is what one of your black minions, Cleveland Brown player Isaiah Crowell, posted on Instagram.

Cop Throat Slit

This is but a small portion of the offensive material going out on social media against law enforcement.

Cop Throat Slit ComparisonNotice any similarity, Mr Obama?  This is your doing sir.  Your doing.  I am not the only one who believes this.  Milwaukee Sheriff David Clarke calls Barack Hussein Obama the Cop Hater-In-Chief.

Sheriff Clarke was interviewed by Don Lemon on CNN last night and had had enough.  You must watch the full interview.

Let us not forget that Black Lives Matter was created behind an outright lie — the lie of “hands up don’t shoot.”  Ferguson Police Officer Darren Wilson had the full force of the federal government fall down on him as a host of 100 FBI agents descended upon Ferguson in order to prove him a racist, a liar, a bad cop, the outright assassin of Michael Brown.

Officer Darren Wilson was cleared entirely but his life was destroyed.  He can never be a law enforcement officer again because of his perceived stigma.

Let me say that again: Black Lives Matter was predicated but upon a LIE, and consists now of mostly racist individuals whose words are murderous themselves and whose members foment and partake of violence.

Black Lives Matter Hate Group SPLC GraphicAs the great Divider-In-Chief and, as I am wont to say, the Racist-In-Chief, Obama is quick to conclude that law enforcement officers are swine.  It is Barack Obama who stated Trayvon Martin could be his son.  In one way, sir, yes, perhaps he could indeed.  But not in the manner he perhaps envisioned.  I don’t mean that in a good way, you see.  Rhetoric uber alles, Mr Obama, for It was Obama who said “if they bring a knife to the fight, we bring a gun.”

Today Barack Obama said that cops need to “admit their failures.”  Perhaps you should turn that burning and accusing finger towards yourself sir and examine your own rhetoric, your own lack of leadership, your own clear biases and prejudices.

It is Barack Hussein Obama who acts without facts.  As I wrote earlier:

Obama sets the tone and the pace for the administration in DC and, by dint of that, the tone for the rest of those who follow he and his fellow political Leftists.

Trayvon Martin became Barack Hussein Obama’s son.  Obama didn’t have all the facts but proclaimed Martin a victim.  Zimmermann was found not guilty, though Obama had already found him guilty.

Obama stated with Bully Pulpit firmness that the Cambridge Police Department “acted stupidly” in the arrest of professor Henry Gates, though Obama didn’t have all the facts.  Gates, by the way, just “happened” to be a personal black friend of Obama’s.

Obama’s attitude of Officer Darren Wilson was that of guilt, though Wilson was never indicted or charged.  Wilson’s life was, however, ruined forever though not convicted of any crime.

Holder had the opportunity to make a statement when Black Panthers barricaded the polls in Philadelphia with weapons they carried, but Holder refused to take any actions whatsoever.

Obama has fanned racist flames, whenever he could, in Ferguson and in Baltimore.  It’s no secret that he wants to federalize police nationally.

Cops are not saints and there are racist cops.  I readily admit that; I’d be a fool not to.

A black male was baldly murdered for taking leg bail on a white police officer following a traffic stop.  That cop, University of Cincinnati Police Officer Ray Tensing, now in fact does face murder charges for the killing of Sanuel DuBose in July of 2015.  DeKalb County (GA) Police Officer Robert Olsen was indicted for murder in January of this year involving the shooting of Anthony Hill, a naked black man with PTSD.  A Portsmouth (VA) police officer, Stephen Rankin, was indicted for murder in September of 2015 for the shooting death of William Chapman, a black young man, stemming from a shoplifting call at a WalMart when Chapman charged at the officer

But these are the few exceptions and not the rule.  This doesn’t count Ferguson Police Officer Darren Wilson who was not charged at all after the shooting of Michael Brown, as well as countless other officers uncharged in various shootings around the country.  This also doesn’t take into account the white males who have been shot and killed at the hands of black police officers — a fact entirely unaddressed by media.

Statistically, roughly 5% of police shootings fall under circumstances that are questionable according to the Washington Post.  The vast majority of individuals shot and killed by police officers were armed with guns and killed after attacking police officers or civilians or making other direct threats.  Of the 960 people killed by police in 2015, 564 were armed with a gun.  281 were armed with another weapon.  Almost half have been white, a quarter have been black and one-sixth have been Hispanic.

Fact: doctors kill roughly 400,000 people per year in the United States.  Doctors are the #3 killer in the US, right behind heart disease and cancer.  Clearly, the nation is screaming for “doctor control.”

On October 24th of last year, my department lost Deputy Danny Oliver, who was shot and killed during a suspicious person contact adjacent a motel.  That same suspect fled the scene, shot a civilian, and then killed Placer County Sheriff’s Detective Michael Davis Jr a short time later.  Detective Michael David Davis Jr. was killed 26 years — to the day — after his own law enforcement father was killed.  Both deputies were slain by a Mexican national who had been deported twice and had drug arrests.

“The rule of law makes society possible,” Mr Barack Hussein Obama said today during a news conference regarding Baton Rouge.  There is a staggering lack of leadership in this nation because of Barack Hussein Obama and, in my opinion, this is quite purposeful for the reasons via the examples I illustrated above.  Mr Obama by his words and actions and continuing tendencies has set a tone and created a climate that has emboldened and empowered people to push and challenge law enforcement to the point where officers nationwide are being ambushed and assassinated outright.

Because of this “tone,” the NAACP is now calling for certain police departments to be defunded.

Mr Obama sets the tone for the nation.  Tone noted.  And I’m so very tired of it.

“Rule of law.”  Right, Mr Obama.  The same “rule of law” continuously avoided by those in power, such as Hillary Rodham Clinton, yourself, William Jefferson Clinton and any number of the political power brokers in DC, aided and abetted by Eric Holder, Loretta Lynch, James Comey and others too numerous to mention.

“All animals are equal, some are more equal than others.”

Rule of law” you say, Mr Barack Hussein Obama?

America needs to have the back of its law enforcement officers.  We should be thankful for its Silverbacks and its Sheepdogs.  I am still a Sheepdog.

When all you do, however, is attack your Sheepdogs, then the wolves appear in greater numbers and threaten your sheep.

Unless that’s your actual plan.

It’s no more complicated than that.
