You know what they say about paybacks?
Clearly, the leftist, group-think MSM is distraught that it no longer has a monopoly on all of America’s press.
But that fact isn’t going to motivate them to accurately report news anytime soon.
To wit, we’ll continue getting articles like the recent NY Times front page piece: ‘How Conservatives Weaponized the First Amendment’.
Because obviously the First Amendment is a sacrosanct protection for a free people when applied to leftist media, but it’s merely a tool for political coercion in the hands of conservatives.
Here’s more from The Daily Caller…
In a Sunday article shockingly not marked “opinion,” a New York Times reporter accused conservatives of “weaponizing” the First Amendment. The story by Adam Liptak titled “How Conservatives Weaponized the First Amendment” made it onto the front page of Sunday’s paper and was presented as a straight news story rather than an opinion piece.
Within just four paragraphs, the author claimed that conservatives have used free speech to justify “discrimination against gay couples” and “unlimited campaign spending.” The article went on to suggest that conservatives are only interested in protecting free speech because it advances their policy goals and that free speech disproportionately benefits the powerful in society.
In usual fashion, POTUS took to Twitter to send a message loud and clear concerning his unwavering support for Immigration and Customs Enforcement:
“To the great and brave men and women of ICE, do not worry or lose your spirit…The radical left Dems want you out. Next it will be all police. Zero chance, It will never happen!”
The Occupy ICE movement, like all the others, are more useful idiots for the Democrats’ class warfare strategy.
It all worked very well until it ran up against Trump. They’ll likely try it again with renewed fervor in 2020. And it’ll be fun to watch.

President Donald Trump responded to growing calls to abolish Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) on Saturday morning, saying, “Zero chance, It will never happen.”
The president sent a tweet aimed at Democrats, some of whom have openly called for ICE to be reorganized or disbanded altogether. He also defended ICE’s accomplishments, particularly with regard to the violent gang MS-13.
According to a report by RealClearInvestigations, the FBI is refusing to fork over intelligence that alleges Obama Attorney General Loretta Lynch meddled in the Hillary Clinton email investigation.
While we’re wondering ‘why’ this information has yet to be turned over, we can only wonder also if some of that intelligence is a transcription of Lynch’s Phoenix tarmac meeting with Mr. Hillary Rodham Clinton.
Every week that passes without the DOJ/FBI’s compliance with congressional requests is just one more reason to begin impeaching people until they recognize the constitutional authority of the people’s house.
Here’s more from Breitbart…
The FBI had little problem leaking “unverified” dirt from Russian sources on Donald Trump and his campaign aides – and even basing FISA wiretaps on it. But according to the Justice Department’s inspector general, the bureau is refusing to allow even members of Congress with top security clearance to see intercepted material alleging political interference by President Obama’s attorney general, Loretta Lynch:
The FBI had little problem leaking “unverified” dirt from Russian sources on Donald Trump and his campaign aides – and even basing FISA wiretaps on it. But according to the Justice Department’s inspector general, the bureau is refusing to allow even members of Congress with top security clearance to see intercepted material alleging political interference by President Obama’s attorney general, Loretta Lynch.
That material – which has been outlined in press reports – consists of unverified accounts intercepted from putative Russian sources in which the head of the Democratic National Committee allegedly implicates the Hillary Clinton campaign and Lynch in a secret deal to fix the Clinton email investigation.
Actually, he may not be wrong.
In classic narcissist Obama fashion, the former POTUS claimed at a DNC fundraiser that Democrats lost 2016 because ‘people were so focused on me’.
Going forward he advised, “Do not wait for the perfect message, don’t wait to feel a tingle in your spine because you’re expecting politicians to be so inspiring and poetic and moving…”
Way to give yourself credit, buddy.
Even when he’s self-deprecating, Obama elevates himself to demi-god status.
Here’s more from The Daily Wire…
On Thursday, former president Barack Obama offered his usual narcissistic perspective, this time as to why the Democrats got pounded in the 2016 election: “People were so focused on me.”
Yup, the fact that Hillary Clinton was a terrible candidate, that much of America was sick of the Left’s identity politics, and that Donald Trump ran one of the most energized campaigns in recent years weren’t the prime cause of the Democrats’ woes; it was simply that Democrats couldn’t muster the energy to vote because of Obama himself.
