Bob Woodward grovels
Donsurber.com, by Don Surber

Original Article

Posted By:earlybird, 2/12/2019 8:48:47 AM

Four decades ago, Bob Woodward was the King of Journalism in Washington. He was the brave soul who spoke truth to power. He had brought down a president. Robert Redford had played him in a movie. This weekend Woodward shucked and jived for the richest man on Earth to keep his job. Pathetic. Jeff Bezos, the richest man in the world, owns the Washington Post, which employs Woodward.

Comments:
So Woodward wrote Bezos a mewling, groveling email.

When will they learn that blaming President Trump for everything bad is like touching that third rail? Starting with nothing in their arsenal but raw hatred, they cannot win.

Woodward is a fine houseboy.

Next he could dress in a jockey outfit and hold a lantern on Bezos’s lawn.

We didn´t know the media was corrupt during the Nixon years, but the "leaking" to the liberal reporters by high government officials should have been a clue. Perhaps that era was the birth of fake news by the "established media".

Woodward has been lionized ever since Watergate and particularly since the film, but time after time he has published dubious books (speaking to a man in a coma and getting a response, even when there was no way he could even have entered the guarded hospital room, etc.) I think it all comes down to Robert Redford playing him...........

Woodard is 76 years old. He has had his one big day- The Watergate Scandal. Since then, he wrote a few books, got on lots of TV shows and has generally been as worthless as wooden wheels on locomotives. He got lots of mileage from that little exposè that the leaker, Mark Felt (another crooked Deputy Director of the FBI) handed to him on a silver platter.

Woodard would have ended up doing the funerals and weddings listings in the Post if it had not been for the Watergate disaster falling into his lap.

Woodward was on a Sunday news show when the Monica Lewinsky blue dress story broke in 1998.
The host, (could have been Dead Tim Russert) asked Woodward, "Why weren´t you on this story?"
Woodward´s arrogant reply, "no one brought me anything."
The real myth of All The President´s Men was that Woodward and Bernstein, through vigorous investigative reporting, uncovered Watergate.That was pure bull.
Judge Sirica, by violating sentencing guidelines, was the mover and shaker in Watergate. He broke the burglars, who talked. Then the FBI fink, Felt, went to the dynamic duo at the W-P, and placed the story in their laps. There were no mysterious, frightening meetings with scary people. (remember W and B running through a parking garage? Pure Hollywood.)
The only person with personal honor may have been G. Gordon Libby.

Just under a year from now, on February 3, 2020, Iowa will hold its caucuses. (Snip) In other words, very soon, President Trump’s opponents will have the opportunity to remove him using the ordinary and regular procedures of an election. Now, before we can know the outcome of the 2020 election, it is the perfect time for both sides reflect on the inherent evil of the political special counsel. And now is the perfect time to consider reforms that can be taken to prevent and endless seesaw of sore losers undermining their political opponents with spurious special counsels and investigations.

Who are the friends of America? Who are the real enemies who hate America to the core of its being? In trying to answer these questions, the usual distinctions between conservative and liberal don’t apply anymore, especially since Donald Trump has been president. The idea of America is under assault today from those who inhabit quarters on both the Right and the Left. Trump has chosen to fight for America’s sovereignty and against the bloated beast of globalism, and that beast has champions on both sides of the traditional political aisle.

The actor Jussie Smollett continues to talk about the alleged January 29 attack on him during a frigid night in Chicago, giving Good Morning America his fullest description yet of his claims. It differs substantially from what he told police initially after the alleged assault. Smollett told GMA that the alleged attack began with a nasty comment from one person who accosted him on the street. He heard someone yell, “Empire” and then “f****** Empire n*****.” He replied, he now says,“What the f*** did you just say to me?” The man added,“This MAGA country, n*****,”

Barack Obama was the first U.S. president to install a golf simulator in the White House, according to a bombshell report in the far-left Washington Post. (Snip)what we have here is yet another example of just how determined the Washington Post and the rest of the media are to live in their own heads; because they don’t even realize what a dazzling self-own this report is. Seriously, think about it: the Washington Post “bombshell” on President Trump updating Obama’s golf simulator, and doing so with his own money, just proves once again how useless and corrupt

The two Nigerian brothers arrested over the Jussie Smollett attack are actors Abimbola ´Abel´ and Olabinjo ´Ola´ Osundairo, DailyMail.com can exclusively reveal. The pair were picked up by police at Chicago O´Hare Airport on Wednesday as they arrived back in America after visiting family in Nigeria to be questioned over the January 29 attack involving the star. It came as Smollett faced allegations that he had staged the attack because he was being written out of Empire, the popular Fox show on which he appears. The two brothers were arrested on suspicion of battery but,

Trump Demands Gavin Newsom Return
$3.5 Billion for Canceled Bullet Train;
Newsom: It’s ‘California’s Money’ Now

President Donald Trump demanded Wednesday evening that the State of California return $3.5 billion in federal funds after Gov. Gavin Newsom canceled most of the state’s high-speed rail project, saying it was too expensive. “California has been forced to cancel the massive bullet train project after having spent and wasted many billions of dollars,” the president tweeted. “They owe the Federal Government three and a half billion dollars. We want that money back now. Whole project is a “green” disaster!”

Trump Declares a National Emergency.
What Happens Next?
New York Times, by Nicholas Fandos    Original Article

In declaring a national emergency to try to build his long-promised border wall, President Trump invoked extraordinary and seldom-used authorities to bypass Congress’s constitutionally granted power of the purse. Democrats are fuming, and many members of Mr. Trump’s party are uneasy about the precedent that such a declaration will set. Lawmakers seeking to block the president have two paths — one in Congress, the other in the courts. Democrats, who control the House, will drive the opposition. Party leaders did not detail their plans on Thursday, as they reviewed options and awaited the text of the president’s declaration.

Reports: McConnell Backed Emergency

The GOP Majority Leader in the Senate persuaded President Donald Trump to not veto the GOP’s flawed border security bill by promising to back a national emergency construction of border walls, according to insider leaks to the establishment media. The Washington Post reported that “Trump had been leaning against supporting the congressional spending bill but relented after several conversations with [Majority Leader Sen. Mitch] McConnell, who then announced his agreement to go along with an emergency declaration.” One reason for Trump’s last-minute opposition is that congressional leaders conducted the negotiations without significant White House involvement.

In that raid, they seized a list of items including multiple containers of bleach, a "red hat," an Empire script, a Mossberg rifle, and two computers.

Sen. Kamala D. Harris (D-Calif.) is running to become the first black female president. But in the early days of the campaign, she’s had to answer questions about the “legitimacy” of her “blackness.” Online, stories have circulated suggesting that Harris is not African American because her parents are immigrants and she spent some of her childhood in Canada. During an appearance on “The Breakfast Club” radio show Monday, hosts DJ Envy and Charlamagne Tha God asked Harris about that. Harris pushed back. “I’m black, and I’m proud of being black. I was born black. I will die black,”

The two hottest commodities in the Democratic Party are Ilhan Omar and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. Earlier this week, Omar exhibited stunning ignorance in her hostile questioning of Elliott Adams Abrams. Similarly, Ocasio-Cortez has often displayed a surprising lack of knowledge for someone who apparently is a college graduate. Don’t get me started on the “Green New Socialism.” But she outdid herself yesterday. The context was Amazon’s announcement that it would not, after all, build a second corporate headquarters in Long Island City, which I understand is close to, but not within, Ocasio-Cortez’s district. The project reportedly would have entailed

WASHINGTON— What is happening to the Democrats? Captivated by a handful of liberal superstars, they are venturing where the party has long feared to tread: Steep taxes on the rich. Abolishing an immigration enforcement agency. Proposing "economic transformation" to combat climate change. Gleefully waving goodbye to a big business — and its jobs. On Thursday, newly-elected Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez led a chorus of cheers as Amazon announced it was abandoning plans to build a sought-after headquarters in New York City.

Washington — Millions of Americans are waiting for Robert Mueller to give them the final word on whether the Trump campaign conspired with the 2016 Russian election interference effort — and whether their president is under the influence of a foreign adversary. Millions of Americans may be sorely disappointed. Unless Mueller files a detailed indictment charging members of the Trump campaign with conspiring with Russia, the public may never learn the full scope of what Mueller and his team has found — including potentially scandalous behavior that doesn´t amount to a provable crime.

Andrew McCabe is a national disgrace. He was part of the most corrupt and most partisan leadership team in FBI history and was fired for being dishonest under oath. And yet, America owes him a big thank-you. McCabe, you see, has reminded us once again that there really is a powerful deep state, and that there has not been a full accounting of rampant FBI misconduct during the presidential campaign of 2016. There is also still too much we don’t know about the role top aides to then-President Barack Obama and higher-ups in the Justice Department
