CNN Tried to Bait POTUS at Rally – Trump Fully Outsmarts Them

CNN was trying to create the news rather than report on it, and that is despicable.

You would think that the mainstream media would have had better things to do yesterday, but, apparently not.

During one of the most egregious and abhorrent acts of domestic terrorism in years, a number of rudimentary, possibly functional pipe bombs were sent to prominent globalist democrats…and CNN and Robert DeNiro.

Thankfully, or perhaps by design, none of these devices detonated and no one was physically hurt.

Given the targets chosen by this serial bomber or bombers, there is little doubt that the motives behind the attack were purely political.  What we don’t know, however, is whether or not this was perpetrated to frame conservatives just before the midterm elections, or if the devices were created by a genuine, right wing lunatic.

What we do know, however, is that CNN tried to turn the incident into a big “win” for themselves, prompting one former NYPD official to even walk off set.

But there was something else going on, behind the scenes at the network, that frankly scares me to death:  The network was attempting to bait the President.

In the middle of the day, as this story was developing, CNN was quick to point out that supporters of the President often chanted “lock her up” at rallies at the mere mention of Hillary Clinton.  This is true, absolutely, but CNN’s assertion was that this bomber, who targeted Hillary specifically, shared the sentiments of those Trump supporters.  Pundits on the network wondered if the “deplorables” would do that again at last night’s Trump rally, even after Hillary was targeted with one of these devices.

But, at the same time, CNN was attempting to goad the President by complaining that he had yet to use the names of those targeted.  The network was upset that Trump hadn’t said the words “Hillary Clinton” or “CNN” during his address to the nation on the subject of the attacks, claiming that this wasn’t an adequate response because of it.

Do you see where I’m headed here?

CNN was insisting that the President use Hillary Clinton’s name when condemning the attacks, knowing full well that the mention of Hillary Clinton at last night’s rally would have started the “lock her up” chant, thusly satisfying their desire to create conflict by airing that hypothetical clip over and over again, to further divide our nation.

Had Trump mentioned “CNN”, there would certainly be a “CNN sucks” chant initiated as well.

President Trump outsmarted them last night by keeping his message broad and inclusive, wherein CNN was hoping for a divisive, combative moment to sell commercials around.

CNN was trying to create the news rather than report on it, and that is despicable.

Justice Department Hints at Trouble for States Engaging in Election Audits

They don’t want other locales getting any ideas from Maricopa County

Published

In Arizona, an ongoing and auxiliary “audit” of the 2020 election results has kept proponents of the “Stop The Steal” movement on the edge of their seats. These folks believe that there were major, fraudulent issues with the electoral system itself, and they believe that a reexamination of the processes and networks involved in counting the vote will provide enough evidence to force Congress to act. Some may even have found themselves wondering if an end to the audit might come just days ahead of Mike Lindell’s “reinstatement day” prediction of August 13th – providing a bit of confluence to some of their theories about the future of Donald Trump’s political career. The Justice Department, on the other hand, isn’t too thrilled about the idea of these audits spreading to other states, and they’re flexing a little of their electoral power to keep other locales from getting any ideas. The Justice Department on Wednesday issued another warning aimed at states conducting or considering audits of ballots tallied in last year’s election, reminding election authorities that allowing ballots to be mishandled can violate federal law. While the Biden administration “guidance” document carries no formal legal weight and may not strike fear into local officials, the Justice Department used the release of the legal analysis to press their campaign of saber-rattling against Republican-led audits of the 2020 vote in Arizona and other states, as well as voting changes many GOP-controlled states are pursuing as part of purported anti-fraud efforts. Then came the mobster-esque verbiage. “Jurisdictions have to be careful not to let those ballots be defaced or mutilated or lost or destroyed as part of an audit,” said a Justice Department official who briefed reporters on condition of anonymity. “This document puts down a marker that says the Justice Department is concerned…

DOJ Gives Jan 6th Committee Green Light to Call Trump Officials as Witnesses

But there’s a good chance that this will backfire spectacularly.

Published

The Democrats steering the select committee investigating January 6th have a very tight line to keep their toes on. On one hand, they know that they aren’t going to get another chance at this investigation, particularly as the GOP continues to downplay the impact of the event itself.  But they also mustn’t sway the hearing too far to the left either, lest they wish to be accused of partisan hackery. One of the simplest ways for the investigation to get a bad rap among conservatives would be to spend a great deal of time on subjects that were already covered in Donald Trump second impeachment trial, in which he was acquitted of “inciting” the insurrection of that fateful day. But this could prove difficult for the overzealous among them, especially after the DOJ has now dangled one hellacious carrot in front of them. Former Trump administration officials can testify to Congress about Donald Trump’s role in the deadly January attack on the Capitol and his efforts to subvert the results of the 2020 election, the justice department (DoJ) has said in a letter obtained by the Guardian. The move by the justice department to decline to assert executive privilege for Trump’s acting attorney general, Jeffrey Rosen, clears the path for other top former officials to also testify to congressional committees investigating the Capitol attack without fear of repercussions. The justice department authorised witnesses to appear specifically before the two committees. But a DoJ official, speaking on the condition of anonymity to discuss sensitive matters, said they expected that approval to extend to the 6 January select committee that began proceedings on Tuesday. And while the Justice Department may think that they are doing the Democrats a favor here, it is somewhat likely that this new avenue of pursuit will take…
