Fake News, Media Lies, and Smear Campaign
The Art of the Smear: It’s an old method that has been used by tyrants throughout history—character assassination. It’s called Disinformation. The corrupt media has used it against Republicans and Republican presidents for decades, and it has succeeded wildly in making establishment Republicans cower in fear. Now they have defined deviancy down exponentially, beneath all decency, stooping to blatant lies, in an attempt to bring down President-elect Trump. But this time it isn’t working, because Trump is not afraid of the lying, corrupt media. ~C.D.
You could tell blog by blog who hoped it to be true, who wanted it to be true, who held out possibilities it was true. Others, like John Podhoretz, slammed it for what it is: The most pathetic descent into unprofessionalism in his experience for the Drive-By Media. And that’s exactly what this is. They are so desperate, they are so ineffective with Trump, they are so at their wits’ end. Every bit of technique and ammunition that they have been able to use any time they want to destroy anybody (usually Republicans), doesn’t work on Donald Trump and so they don’t know what to do.
Incoming White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus called the report “offensive crap that we shouldn’t even be talking about. This is garbage … shameful is what it is.”
Perhaps the most damning evidence that the news is fake comes from the apparent source of the story, the website 4Chan, which now claims it fabricated the entire story as a hoax.
Part of the story alleges Trump aide Michael Cohen went to Prague to coordinate activities with Russian agents.
However, all the main characters involved in the story are adamantly denying it.
Trump tweeted: “FAKE NEWS – A TOTAL POLITICAL WITCH HUNT!”
He added, “Intelligence agencies should never have allowed this fake news to ‘leak’ into the public. One last shot at me.Are we living in Nazi Germany?”
And, “Russia has never tried to use leverage over me. I HAVE NOTHING TO DO WITH RUSSIA – NO DEALS, NO LOANS, NO NOTHING!”
Putin denied his country had collected or was holding any incriminating evidence on Trump.
Cohen produced his passport on MSNBC to show he had never even been to Prague.

Ted Cruz Awesomely Rebuts Democrat Smears Against Jeff Sessions! – January 10, 2017
History facts: The democrats succeeded in destroying Robert Bork, Supreme Court nominee. Hence the term “Bork” has entered the dictionary. They used vile, filthy lies against Clarence Thomas as well. Now the democrats are trying their abominable smear campaign against the Honorable Senator Jeff Sessions. This time their lies are being exposed. The truth is that the democrats are guilty of all the very accusations they are making. At last. Truth matters, and it will prevail. ~C.D.
RUSH LIMBAUGH: All day the Democrats had spent pontificating and lecturing Jeff Sessions on whether or not he followed the law, whether or not he’d be rogue in there, whether or not he would use the position of attorney general to implement the president’s agenda like Loretta Lynch and Holder did, which was fine with them, but when it came to Sessions, he better not do that.
So Cruz is pointing out — oh, yeah. He also mentioned Fast and Furious. When the president and the previous attorney general concocted a program to sell weapons to Mexican drug cartels out of American gun stores, the Democrats on this committee were silent. Just nailed ’em to the wall, also nailed Al Franken to the wall. Here’s the next Sessions sound bite.
TED CRUZ shows the pattern of Obama lawlessness:
- When the Department of Justice used Operation Choke Point to target legal businesses because they disagreed politically with those businesses, the Democrats on this committee were silent.
- When the Obama Justice Department sent millions of dollars of taxpayer monies to sanctuary cities that were defying federal immigration law, the Democrats on this committee were silent.
- When the Obama administration refused to enforce federal immigration laws and unilaterally rewrote those laws, the Democrats on this committee were silent.
- When the Obama administration released tens of thousands of criminal illegal aliens, including rapists and murderers, into the general population, Democrats on this committee were silent.
- When the Department of Justice signed off to the Obama administration paying a nearly $2 billion ransom to Iran, contrary to federal law, the Democrats on this committee were silent.
- When the Obama administration ignored and rewrote provision after provision of Obamacare contrary to the text of the law, the Democrats on this committee were silent.
- When the Obama administration signed off on illegal recess appointments that the Supreme Court had to strike down unanimously, the Democrats on this committee were silent.
- And when the Obama administration released five Guantanamo terrorists without the required notification of Congress, the Democrats on this committee were silent.
That pattern has been dismaying for eight years, but I take today as a moment of celebration. If once again this committee has a bipartisan commitment to rule of law to following the law, that is a wonderful thing and is consistent with the tradition of this committee going back centuries.
