CBS Evening News anchor Norah O’Donnell was just the latest journalist to make a fool of herself by repeating the exact words that an unnamed DOJ official told her without verifying the information independently. This time, the factual matter under dispute was the exact whereabouts of President Trump’s three passports after the FBI raided his Florida mansion.
Must Watch: Putin offers Nuclear Weapons to Everyone
The Deep State wanted ordinary Americans to know yesterday — off the record of course! — that the FBI didn’t take Donald Trump’s passports. How dare the 45th President of the United States suggest such a thing! To have the audacity to accuse our finest law enforcement officers of stealing his stuff, Norah wanted you to know, was just another low in the career of Orange Man Bad.
Except, of course, Trump was right. The FBI had stolen his passports during the raid on Mar-a-Lago. Trump’s attorneys even released an email from the FBI telling them when his passports could be picked up! To make matters worse: the passports were missing on the FBI’s property receipt of items seized (whoops), and the warrant didn’t allow the FBI to take them anyway (whoops again), and the federal government had failed to get a special court order to seize his passports too (triple whoops).
When President Trump said that the FBI stole his passports, he was being technically (and ethically and legally) correct.
It turns out that the DOJ official that CBS News had trusted to tell the truth was not — like countless other DOJ officials and FBI officials and CIA officials and other assorted other national security state bureaucrats during the Trump years — telling the truth. Like so many other media personalities in the last few years, O’Donnell had humiliated herself by doing exactly what federal law enforcement officials in the Banana Republic of Biden wanted her to do: spread misinformation.

Norah O’Donnell’s Twitter account was not suspended, of course, for spreading misinformation. Far from it! Her career as a pseudo-journalist will continue on at CBS News because she has willingly played her part in the greater cause of “getting Trump” before the 2024 election. In fact, the chances that Norah O’Donnell will win some bogus news journalism award (named after an octogenarian Democrat donor no doubt) have actually increased — which tells you everything you need to know about corporate journalism in America today.
Those who parrot the falsehoods of government officials in Biden’s Banana Republic are rewarded handsomely. There are laurels for every liar.
Meanwhile, a much more important journalist named Paul Sperry — who works as an investigative reporter for Real Clear Politics — suffered a very different fate. He found himself permanently suspended on Twitter for sharing information from anonymous sources just like Norah O’Donnell.
Notice the difference.
Paul Sperry has spent his time following the Durham investigation — which is too close for comfort for the corrupt figures in charge of the Biden regime. The FBI is probably not a fan of his reporting either — so he’s been banned.
In case you’re wondering whether you still live in America, just consider this: the corporate news had no problem with picking disgraced FBI counterintelligence official Peter Strozk to defend the integrity of the FBI.
Now remember: the folks over at MSNBC could have picked anyone to publicly defend the FBI’s credibility. They chose Peter Strozk.
That’s like picking Ike Turner as your marriage counselor, or Hunter Biden as your spiritual advisor, or Bill Clinton as a babysitter for teenage girls.
It’s a failure of judgment that’s so spectacular and obvious that it must be deliberate.
In other words, MSNBC is telling you that the Democrat wing of the national security state is in charge of our democracy — our elections, our institutions, our corporate media, and our secret police. Meanwhile, the GOP establishment has resisted this tyranny by — let me check my notes here —helping Democrats pass trillion dollar budget bills and restricting gun ownership.
That’s why I’m skeptical about the prospects for a free and fair election in the 2022 midterms — or in 2024.
You think these people are going to give up power willingly — so that Republicans can conduct oversight investigations in Congress?
I doubt it.
You think that they’re not going to arrest President Trump and convict him in a DC kangaroo court to ten years in prison — while they run a chump ticket like Pence/Haley in his place?
You might be underestimating the Biden regime.
Just last month, they wanted you to believe that the 76 year-old Donald Trump lunged for the steering wheel of his armored limo, and nearly strangled a Secret Service agent, in order to drive himself to the Capitol on January 6th — an absurd fairy tale that was pushed for weeks until the Secret Service was forced to dismiss the story out of hand. Here’s the kicker: Democrats repeated this story with a straight face while Merrick Garland and his DOJ prepared a search warrant for Trump’s mansion by having Jeffrey Epstein’s former defense attorney sign off on it.
Something tells me the Biden regime doesn’t really care about optics anymore.
Maybe the Biden regime is flipping the bird at our laws because they don’t really care to appear legitimate anymore.
You know they cheated. They know they cheated. They know that you know they cheated. (After all, they can read polls like everybody else.) So why play pretend anymore?
Consider the possibility that Democrats are seizing power permanently.
Consider the possibility that they’ll rig any election at any time to achieve their aims.
It’s no big deal, for instance, to throw out 200,000 signatures out of 715,000 collected for a recall of District Attorney George Gascon in Los Angeles. That’s a huge story in any year before this year but it’s a footnote in the Banana Republic of Biden. Democrats did that yesterday — and you probably didn’t even hear about it.
They’ve already crossed the line —as the raid on Trump’s mansion made clear to most Americans — so why stop now?
They have the secret police and the corporate media and the federal government and the universities and Hollywood and Silicon Valley and Big Pharma and Wall Street on their side.
Who’s going to stop them?
Perhaps we have no idea just how far the Biden regime is willing to go to maintain power. That’s why you’re suffering from vertigo watching the news. That’s why it all seems to be happening at once.
Consider the possibility that America’s constitutional republic is being canceled — right before your eyes.
