In its typically hyperbolic manner, fake news CNN predicted Saturday that President Donald J. Trump will be arrested or booted from office before he can build a wall on the southern border.
“It is outrageous, Fred. It is all fake. It’s all just to force Congress into making some sort of resolution. He is never going to enact this power. He won’t do it. He will get annihilated in court. It will drag on, he may be arrested before this,” guest Richard Herman said on “CNN Newsroom” with Fredricka Whitfield.
Herman is an immigration lawyer, so naturally he opposes strict border security as it would be bad for business. This makes him the perfect guest. Between chortling in disgust, shaking his head, and making alien guttural noises to express his malcontent, Herman swore up and down that there is no crisis on the border, apparently ignoring President Barack H. Obama’s 2014 address during which he said the same, and Obama’s border patrol chief’s agreement with Trump on the issue. Never mind the facts about illegal crossings, deaths, cartel violence and human trafficking, and drugs pouring into the United States.
“The great bloviator and deflector will never do it. Because in reality, not the twilight zone, there is no crisis. There is no national emergency. And this will be the first time Congress will seek to overturn a national emergency if Trump decides to call it. He’s doing it to bluff. He’s doing it to bluff Congress and make a deal for him. There’s no way, Fred, he’s going to actually do it. It’s just a threat. It’s a bloviation and deflection,” Herman choked.
It’s not simply that CNN is happy to ignore all the facts on this issue. It’s that they host the most angry and miserable excuses for pundits to spew this nonsense, and then wonder why the American people dislike them.

As Trump Leaves Office, Media Cites Ineffectiveness of Lockdowns and Democratic Leaders Display Eagerness to Reopen
Right on cue.
With President Donald Trump’s impending exit from the White House, many are starting to perceive pivots from Democratic leaders and the mainstream media on the ineffectiveness of lockdowns and the reopening of society.
For example, Newsweek ran an article Thursday titled “COVID Lockdowns May Have No Clear Benefit vs Other Voluntary Measures, International Study Shows.” The study, published in the European Journal of Clinical Investigation, found through a mathematical model that there was “no clear, significant beneficial effect of [more restrictive measures] on [COVID-19] case growth in any country.”
This is just one study, of course, so it may not reflect objective reality any more than one study which concludes that lockdowns saved “millions of lives.” But after getting bombarded with messages from the media that lockdowns were necessary—with the opposite message found only on explicitly conservative outlets like Big League Politics—it may seem too coincidental to see such a story while the changing of the presidential guard takes place.
Not only that, it also comes at a time when some Democratic leaders appear to be chomping at the bit to reopen restaurants, bars, and schools—after several months of harsh insistence that they all must stay closed in the name of “safety” and “public health.”
On Monday, for example, Governor Andrew Cuomo of New York called for the reopening of the state’s economy “smartly and safely.”
“We simply cannot stay closed until the vaccine hits critical mass. The cost is too high. We will have nothing left to open. We must reopen the economy, but we must do it smartly and safely,” Cuomo tweeted.

Mayor of Chicago Lori Lightfoot put out a similar call on Thursday, saying that bars and restaurants need to reopen “as quickly as possible” because it will help those businesses survive and reduce the number of large private parties and gatherings.
And incoming president Joe Biden recently pitched a $175 billion plan to return children to school, $130 billion of which would be for public elementary, middle, and high schools, the other $35 billion for colleges and universities. Many teachers unions stubbornly refused to return to in-person classes for the longest time, but now that Biden has come out in support of in-person classes, don’t be surprised to see them suddenly change their tune.
The left is so predictable, isn’t it?
