Wow! Big “News” Day !
TRUMP ASKED COMEY TO DROP PROBE (Guess it was starting to hurt)
That’s the morning’s headline, page 1 above the fold in the Wall Street Journal. Note, it doesn’t say “allegedly” asked.
The newspaper, in a rather giddy, unseemly fashion reports on a memo “Big Jim” Comey wrote immediately after a meeting during which President Trump, according to the Journal’s lead paragraph, “…asked (then FBI Director) Comey to back off the investigation of former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn…”.
Now, it’s no secret that the Wall Street Journal, neither its news or Opinion page, is a friend or supporter of Donald Trump. It does seem rather unprofessional, however, for the paper to exhibit such eagerness to lead the story as undeniably true.
We at Veritaspac practice a more cautious approach to journalism than the renowned WSJ.
For example, even though we have never been a ‘friend or supporter’ of Mr. Comey, we’d never think of reporting on an unconfirmed rumor which might undercut the story of Comey’s “documented’ notes.
Why, if someone told us that Comey’s account of the February meeting with Trump, written immediately after, but only now surfacing, was scribbled on a copy of last week’s New York Times, we’d never report it without verifying!
Nope! Not us.
Seriously though, here’s a paragraph from another WSJ story on Trump’s “sharing secrets with Russia”:
” The president’s decision to discuss sensitive intelligence with a US adversary reignited concerns among lawmakers that Mr. Trump is either incapable or unwilling to handle discreetly the nation’s most guarded secrets.”
THIS IS A ‘LEADING NEWSPAPER’??!! AND THOSE “CONCERNED LAWMAKERS???!!!
WHERE HAVE THEY BEEN THE LAST 8 YEARS?! NO ONE EVEN KNOWS HOW MANY OF OUR NATION’S ‘MOST GUARDED SECRETS’ BARACK OBAMA MAY HAVE SHARED WITH IRAN DURING HIS TWO YEAR SECRET NEGOTIATIONS WITH THE WORLD’S BIGGEST SPONSOR OF TERRORISM!!
AND HILLARY CLINTON’S ‘CAPABILITY’ AND ‘WILLINGNESS’ TO ‘HANDLE DISCRETELY’ THE NATION’S MOST GUARDED SECRETS???!!!!! (Hillary Clinton and “discretely” cannot be used credibly in the same sentence, Wall Street Journal “geniuses”!)
MAXINE’S WORLD (not to be confused with “Watters’ World”)
Long a leader of the “CNJC” (Congressional NutJob Caucus), Maxine Waters, according to our sources, is considering joining with the weepy New York senator and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer in calling for all Executive branch and congressional Republicans to recuse themselves from any participation in US government.
We hear the pair is charging that there would be a “clear conflict of interest” if Republicans were to exercise Executive powers or sponsor or enact any legislation because it would benefit their party and enhance their reelection chances.
That would make perfect sense to us… very consistent with the approach to governance by Democrats and liberal media.
We also hear that Schumer and Waters will shut down the government if Republicans do not comply with their demand for recusal. It’s rumored that ‘journalists’ of all Fake News Outlets have pledged to blame Republicans for any such action. No news there.
The teaming of Chuck Schumer and Maxine Waters is a match made in…somewhere.
Schumer is considered one of the highest IQ’s in congress (perfect 1600 on his SAT, Grad of Harvard and Harvard Law School). Maxine? Well, let’s put it this way: Together the two of them appear to have an average IQ of 43.5.
Oh, and an unconfirmed rumor has it that Ms. Waters is quite proud of her educational accomplishments. So much so, in fact, that in her congressional office elegantly framed manila envelopes in which her degrees were sent to her are on display.
Now we’re just going by her various remarkably stupid comments and positions over the years, but, we hear, at Maxine’s graduation ceremony, the commencement address by an unidentified speaker was entitled “Whose idea was Affirmative Action, Anyway?”.
Speaking of “matches made in, er, somewhere…
…it was recently announced that George Will, who, according to unconfirmed reports, suffers stage 4 senility, is retiring to an “assisted thinking” facility”, joining MSNBC. The once renowned pundit will thus be part of a network of other luminaries such as the Reverend Al Sharpton and Rachel, “Your Grouchy Lesbian”, Maddow.
Also rumored that George will co-anchor a new show on that network, tentatively named “George and Chelsea (Manning) Wonder What The Hell Is Going On?”.
… Other major changes at MSNBC await the nuptials between Joe Scarborough and Mika Berzezinski. Rumor has it their new show, formerly “Morning Joe”, will be called “The Bickersons Revived”. The pair will appear around the breakfast bar in housecoat and robe and each of their co-hosts will be called “Ned the grumpy neighbor”.
