Rabid Anti-Trump Cartoonist Victim of His Own Bile

With his set of ‘skills’ he can always get a job at CNN or MSNBC.

Via Pajamas Media

Veteran Pittsburgh Post-Gazette cartoonist Rob Rogers claims he was fired for criticizing Donald Trump. He penned a self-serving, whiny op-ed in Friday’s New York Times, the gist of which is that he was speaking truth to power and his bosses didn’t like it.

“I was trained in a tradition in which editorial cartoonists are the live wires of a publication — as one former colleague put it, the “constant irritant.” Our job is to provoke readers in a way words alone can’t. Cartoonists are not illustrators for a publisher’s politics.

When I was hired in 1993, The Post-Gazette was the liberal newspaper in town, but it always prided itself on being a forum for a lot of divergent ideas. The change in the paper did not happen overnight. From what I remember, it started in 2010, with the endorsement of the Republican candidate for Pennsylvania governor, which shocked a majority of our readership. The next big moment happened in late 2015, when my longtime boss, the editorial page editor, took a buyout after the publisher indicated that the paper might endorse Mr. Trump. Then, early this year, we published openly racist editorials.”

This is the editorial in the Post-Gazette that Rogers claims is “openly racist”:

“Calling someone a racist is the new McCarthyism. The charge is pernicious. The accuser doesn’t need to prove it. It simply hangs over the accused like a great human stain.

It has become not a descriptive term for a person who believes in the superiority of one race over another, but a term of malice and libel — almost beyond refutation, as the words “communist” or “communist sympathizer” were in the 1950s.

Moreover, the accuser somehow covers himself in an immunity of superiority. If I call you a racist, I probably will not be called one. And, finally, having chosen the ultimate epithet, I have dodged the obligation to converse or build.”

Is he aware of the incredible irony? I doubt it.

Perhaps that alone should disqualify him from commenting on politics in any way, including editorial cartoons. But it’s still kind of a free country so he is welcome to his opinions.

He is not, however, owed valuable space in a newspaper to spout hatred of anyone — including the president of the United States. Nor is he guaranteed a job if he is boring, repetitive, and angry.

……Some of his portrayals of Trump go beyond satire and are simply mean. Only the most virulent anti-Trump citizens would find them “funny” and then only in the way it’s “funny” to pull the wings off of flies.

Comedians have the same problem. They have become so strident, so hysterically anti-Trump that they are no longer funny except to a small percentage of their audience. Rogers’ obsession made him predictable and boring — and no publisher should have to employ him on those terms.

 

He now joins the likes of Ted Rall in the dumpster of squalling leftwingnut cartoonists.

NYT Reporter Had Relationship With Senate Intelligence Committee Aide Who Leaked Classified Information

 

A member of the leftwing media sleeps with an insider to leak classified information for their insane politically-charged anti-Trump campaign. I guess emails and phone calls wouldn’t do.

 

Via Fox News

 

New York Times reporter Ali Watkins’ past tweets are raising eyebrows after revelations she had a three-year romantic relationship with a Senate Intelligence Committee aide now accused by federal prosecutors of leaking sensitive information to journalists, including herself.

On Thursday, the New York Times reported that federal investigators had seized years’ worth of Watkins’ email and phone records as part of a leak probe into James Wolfe, the former security director for the Senate Intelligence Committee indicted for giving false statements to FBI agents. Wolfe appeared for a federal court hearing in Baltimore on Friday, where he relinquished his passport and was prohibited from traveling outside of the District of Columbia and Maryland.

The indictment says Wolfe leaked information to reporters about the committee’s work, including its subpoena last fall of an individual believed to be former Trump adviser Carter Page.

But in several tweets in September 2017, Watkins, while dating Wolfe and working for Politico, seemed to point the finger at attorneys for President Trump over various media disclosures.

……The indictment said Wolfe, 58, began dating Watkins — who is in her 20’s — in 2013 when she was an undergraduate student working as a news intern. The indictment said the pair ended the relationship in December 2017.In an April 2013 tweet, Watkins also tweeted about the fictional Netflix television show “House of Cards,” where a young reporter has an affair with an older member of Congress.

 

The revelations also have raised questions about how much her employers knew about the relationship. Watkins previously worked for BuzzFeed, Politico and McClatchy.

The New York Times said Watkins informed her editors about the previous relationship when she was hired. The newspaper also said Watkins claimed to have told both Politico and BuzzFeed about the relationship, though she continued covering the committee.

The Times article said the newspaper only learned Thursday that the DOJ sent her a letter in February about the record seizure. She joined the newspaper in Decmber 2017.

Since the story went public, her employers have expressed concerns about the government obtaining her records.

 

Watkins has zero self awareness.

This sums things up quite nicely:

So much for the  “Journalist Code of Ethics“:

Hannity Floats Some Snark Over Hillary’s Tampering With Evidence, Lib Media Goes Ape Shit

Sean Hannity simply recapped everything Hillary’s aides did to their devices, and nothing was ever done about it.

Via BizPac Review

The sarcasm in Sean Hannity’s advice to witnesses in special counsel Robert Mueller‘s probe to “bash” their cellphones was conveniently lost on his critics.

The Fox News host was not actually condoning tampering with evidence during his monologue Wednesday, though triggered liberals quickly grabbed their pitchforks and torches.

But Hannity did have a very clear point to make about the Mueller “witch hunt” and the special counsel’s “pitbull” team.

Investigators in the probe are “demanding that witnesses turn in their phones,” he said. “Even texts that are on what are called encrypted apps, like Whatsapp or Signal.”

Hannity then made a comparison to Hillary Clinton’s private email server during her time as secretary of state and the FBI investigation it prompted.

“Maybe Mueller’s witnesses, I don’t know,” Hannity said, “if I advised them to follow Hillary Clinton’s lead, delete all your emails and then acid-wash your emails and hard drives on the phones, then take your phones and bash them with a hammer to little itsy bitsy pieces, use BleachBit, remove the sim cards.”

Hanity continued, saying, “then take the pieces and hand them over to Robert Mueller, and say, Hillary Rodham Clinton, this is equal justice under the law.”

The Fox News host was referring, of course, to the more than 30,000 emails of Clinton’s that were found to have been destroyed. Clinton claimed the emails were deleted as many of them were on personal and private matters.

“How do you think that would work out for everybody who Mueller’s demanding their phones of tonight?” Hannity asked.

“I’m certain the result would not be the same as Hillary’s,” arguing that Clinton could apparently get away with it but Trump’s allies can not.

Liberals immediately unleashed their attacks on Hannity, accusing him of coercing witnesses into destroying evidence. Democratic Coalition co-founder, Scott Dworkin – who credits himself with helping “uncover #TrumpRussia scandal” – even called for the Fox News host to be indicted.

 

Liberal morons have reached a new level of autistic behavior. I watched that segment on Hannity’s show, and anyone with half a brain—excluding liberals—would realize that he was using sarcasm to make a point.

Hillary deliberately used an illegal, unsecure server to store and transmit classified information,  deleted incriminating emails at the suggestion of Obama’s DOJ, and lied before Congress. It’s right in front of everyone’s face.  She knew that it was a national security violation, but did it anyway.

All kinds of federal laws were broken.

Comey gave immunity to Clinton aides and IT experts  and destroyed their laptops, which contained evidence related to the investigation. Those aides include Cheryl Mills, Clinton’s former chief of staff, along with two other State Department staffers, John Bentel and Heather Samuelson, Bryan Pagliano, Clinton’s former IT aide, and Paul Combetta, an employee at Platte River networks, the firm hired to manage her server after she left the State Department.

Combetta, who went on Reddit requesting technical advice on how to strip a “VIP (VERY VIP)” email address from archives stored on a server he has “full access to“, posed as ‘Stonetear’ on the site, and the ‘VIP’ was indeed Hillary. Combetta used the computer program “Bleachbit” to destroy Clinton’s records, despite an order from Congress to preserve them, and Samuelson also destroyed Clinton’s emails.

Hillary Clinton, along with former FBI director James Comey and DOJ AG Loretta Lynch, aided and abetted the cover up and were complicit in tampering with evidence and obstructing justice.

If witnesses in Mueller’s Deep State persecution should do the same, why not? It sure as hell worked for Hillary.

Santa Fe High School Texas Shooter is Another Deranged Wackjob Who Didn’t Care About Laws

 

From his Facebook page:

 

From Fox News

Dimitrios Pagourtzis has been identified as the suspected shooter who killed at least 10 people with a barrage of bullets at a Texas high school on Friday, according to law enforcement officials.

Pagourtzis, 17, was a student at Santa Fe High School, about 30 miles southeast of Houston. He played football for the school’s junior varsity team and was a member of a dance squad with a local Greek Orthodox church, The Associated Press reported.

Pagourtzis is being held in the Galveston County Jail on capital murder charges with no bond, officials said.

Texas Gov. Greg Abbott said the suspect had a shotgun and a .38 revolver that legally belonged to his father. He said the suspect did not have a criminal history nor did he portray any warning signs other than some Facebook posts.

The suspect intended to kill himself but gave up and told authorities he did not have the courage to take his own life, Abbott said.

Via Breitbart

During a press conference on Friday, Texas Governor Greg Abbott (R) said that the weapons used in the Sante Fe shooting were not legally possessed by the shooter and current information is that the weapons were legally owned by the shooter’s father.

Abbott said, “As you probably have heard, the weapons used in this attack, there are two weapons. One was a shotgun and the other is a .38 revolver. Neither of these weapons were owned or legally possessed by the shooter. It is my information that both of these weapons were obtained by the shooter from his father. It’s my information at this time that the father legally owned these weapons. I have no information at this time whether or not the father was aware that his son had taken these weapons from the father.”

 

And BTW, he was stopped by good guys with guns.

Shit bags like Pagourtzis don’t go after fortified targets.  He probably didn’t realize the school had what little security it did, and he snuck in to shoot at unarmed students. Like Rand Paul said: “disturbed shooters “aren’t so disturbed that they’re going to shoot up the sheriff’s office. They’re showing up where there is no self-defense.”

And of course, the leftwing media jumps in with their own ‘facts’ and anti-gun rhetoric.

Again, this is a case where the nutbag announced his intentions on social media, but no one took him seriously.

He says he didn’t have the courage to take his own life? Great. Stand his ass up in front of a firing squad and do it for him.

Criminals don’t bother with background checks. I’m an NRA member, I’m armed and I shoot.  According to the Left’s set of rules, some are more deserving of the Second Amendment than others, and they certainly know how to selectively exploit and politicize gun-related crimes.

I’m at the top of the list. I’m flattered.

This is my response to WordPress:

 

Dear WordPress:

The fact that you kowtow to tyrannical Paki authorities by helping them limit the free speech of their citizens is a  clear indication of your cowardice and puts you on par with their regime. So be it.

If you expect me to censor my right to the 1st Amendment as an American citizen in my own country, you are sadly mistaken. I’m willing to bet that any parody, insult, or “blasphemy” against Christians in Pakistan goes unaffected.
If you have doubts, just read:

Pakistan attack: How Christian minority lives

That’s the kind of “peace and harmony” advocated by the Paki authorities.
It’s a shame that WordPress panders to the likes of a brutal muzzie oligarchy and bends to the demands of a jackbooted government.
I guess I shouldn’t be too surprised, given the fact that your headquarters is situated in the leftwing bastion of the U.S.; San Francisco.
If they want to crack down on the free speech of their own population they can do it themselves, they don’t need the assistance of an American corporation.
Shame on you.

SFC MAC

BTW: Pakistan is the same muzzie-infested cesspool that facilitates Islamic terrorism. The Inter-Service Intelligence (ISI) has Taliban moles on its payroll, and cells run back across the Afghan border after re-grouping, thanks to the Pakistan regime. Any resurgence of the Taliban in Afghanistan can be directly attributed to terrorist groups operating carte blanche in Pakistan; abetted by a large portion of the Pakistani government, Army, and ISI.

The Pakis also harbored Bin Laden and Khalid Sheikh Mohammed .

They can take their sensitivities and ram them up their collective asses.
