Kellyanne Weighs in On Media Culpability in Hate-Filled Week

Conway, as always, has refused to go quietly into the proverbial night on this subject.

As Americans, we are used to a bit of raucous rhetoric in our national debate, but the last few weeks have been something else entirely.

With a slew of hate crimes and politically motivated terror sweeping the nation in the days ahead of our 2018 midterm elections, Americans have reached an entirely unprecedented level of stress in recent days.  The blame game is in full effect, of course, with the media blaming the President for his campaigns against political correctness.

On the other end of the argument, however, we have a great many political observers and participants pointing fingers at the media who stand to gain the most from the “New Civil War” that they themselves have been alluding to.  You see, they would reap millions in ad revenue should these shocking events continue, and as Americans find themselves glued to the television set.

Now, one of the President’s long-time allies is speaking out on this very subject.

White House counselor Kellyanne Conway on Monday called on the press to stop looking for ways to blame President Trump for the synagogue shooting over the weekend that left 11 people dead.

“Politicians pointing the finger, media making it about themselves,” she said on Fox News. “Cut it out, and recognize that this man went in there to ‘kill Jews.'”

Conway said Trump has always asked people to unite when tragedy strikes, but she said the press keeps trying to turn every tragedy into a weapon against Trump’s presidency. She said cable news shows do this more than most.

Whether or not we are ever able to resolve this scenario is unclear, given just how similar it seems to the age-old “chicken or the egg” argument.

What we do know, however, is that we will take every bit of respite that we can while the nation attempts to rediscover what it means to be an American.

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…
