The Brew: Six Month Ultra MAGA Venture is Ultra Brandon, Plus March to Justice for Trump-Russia Hoax Finally Stops at a Courthouse
Welcome to a new week.
Already shaping up to be a hot one.
Only One Comment on the Buffalo Grocery Store Massacre
It’s tragic, it’s sad, it’s wrong, and our hearts go out to everyone who’s suffered loss and hurt from it. But … a gun doesn’t livestream itself committing mass murder.
Okay, Actually Two Comments
Early Sunday morning, before I read anything about the teenage suspect in the Buffalo massacre, I wrote Dr. Michael Brown:
Did he show any sign of this bs before the school shutdowns? I feared that the lockdowns and masks were going to create an army of sociopaths.
And of course I want to know who groomed him. Which gets to what was he doing when schools weren’t open for in-class learning.
And now there’s this from the NY Post.
Payton Gendron … claimed in a 180-page diatribe that he was “radicalized” on the internet while he was bored during the early days of the pandemic, not by any people he has met personally.
A safe but sad prediction: We’ll find an FBI informant somewhere in the midst of this.
Dr. Brown writes about the shootings in “The Buffalo Shooter Wanted to Murder Blacks and Jews … Especially Jews.”
Of course, the media immediately fixed blame on MAGA … for example the once admirable, now odious S.E. Cupp.
The shooter specifically attacked Fox and conservatives in his manifesto.
But if news outlets & political parties are responsible for mass killings can we blame your crowd for Waukesha & the NYC subway shootings? https://t.co/DMT7U3lI8j

“Ultra-MAGA Label” … Six Months of Research?
What is more disturbing? Their ease at lying or their incompetence?
Last week, the White House sprung the “Ultra-MAGA” label on an unsuspecting world, in an effort to tarnish Republicans. And the world laughed. (Almost as hard as the world laughed at Biden for thinking that calling Trump “The Great MAGA King” was an insult.) MAGA nation took it as a badge of honor. The label is backfiring. As anyone with a toe in the real world would have known instantly.
Last week, Jen Psaki in one of her final acts as White House propagandist, said Biden himself came up with the “Ultra-MAGA” label.
Then we learned the truth. The White House was working six months on “Ultra-MAGA” messaging, including focus groups. Six months. All while they knew America’s supply of baby formula was running dry. And Putin was massing on the Ukraine border. And inflation was running wild. But this “Ultra-MAGA” is what they focused on. Can anyone say “Ultra-Brandon”?

Not for nothing, but Biden Admin took six months to come up with a two-word slur that failed miserably. It took only nine months for MAGA’s “Operation Warp Speed” to develop COVID vaccines and therapeutics.
And speaking of COVID vaccines …
White House Falsely Tweets There Were No COVID Vaccines When He Took Office
On Friday, the White House tweeted, “When President Biden took office, millions were unemployed and there was no vaccine available.” Uh … then, who was that baffled-looking old guy celebrating getting vaccinated and boosted twice before even taking office?
Whatever’s short-circuiting Biden’s mental wiring, it’s apparently contagious.
The White House was forced to admit their screw-up, saying they should have said “widely available.”
We previously misstated that vaccines were unavailable in January 2021. We should have said that they were not widely available.
Vaccines became available shortly before the President came into office. Since then, he’s responsible for fully vaccinating over 200 million people. https://t.co/rHJ0GZ63Dy

Responsible for fully vaccinating 200 million? No wonder he looks so tired. And isn’t amazing how this White House always errs on the side of demagoguery?
Johns Hopkins Hires Trans Professor Who Wants to Normalize Pedophilia
Perhaps we should have seen this coming when woke localities started hiring prosecutors who hate prosecuting criminals. But then again, this next bit is far too outrageous. I mean, if you’re hiring for a child abuse prevention program, who would bring on a professor who advocates de-stigmatizing pedophilia?
Johns Hopkins, that’s who.
We are excited to share that Allyn Walker, PhD, will be joining the Moore Center as a postdoctoral fellow on May 25.

The university’s Moore Center “for the Prevention of Child Sexual Abuse” was “excited to share” they’d hired Allyn Walker … about six months after Walker was forced to quit Old Dominion Univ. for writing pedophiles should be called “minor-attracted persons,” and that there’s nothing necessarily immoral about adults being sexually attracted to children.
Secret Recording Claims Putin Dying of Blood Cancer
Vladimir Putin is “very ill with blood cancer.” That according to a secret recording of a Russian oligarch tight with the Kremlin obtained by New Lines Magazine.
The report is consistent with other news stories questioning the Russian leader’s health. Puffy face (from steroids), gripping the table while meeting with Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu. Watching the Victory Day parade last week wrapped in a thick wool blanket. Always traveling with three doctors, including an oncologist. So much for the bare-chested macho man on a horse.
The oddest story comes from Proyekt, an independent Russian publication. They claim Putin is bathing in the blood from red deer antlers. It’s an old Serbian treatment recommended by Shoigu, the story goes. Actually the “Putin bathes in antler blood” story’s been around for years now. The stuff is supposed to improve potency.
Saying Putin’s really sick could be part of the propaganda front of the Ukraine war. So we’ll have to see if the blood cancer story proves true. But the report does raise a question: If Putin dies, who’s Hillary and the White House going to blame for all their failures and losses?
First Trial for a Trump-Russia Hoax Conspirator Begins Today
The very long march to justice for the conspirators behind the Trump-Russia Collusion Black Op makes a major stop today. Trial begins for Michael Sussman, the former Perkins Coie lawyer who was paid to help gin up the Alfa Bank angle of the hoax. He’s formally accused by John Durham of lying to the FBI when he said he was acting on his own and not on behalf of any client when he was feeding the Feds phony information about Trump. He was being paid by the Clinton Campaign.
The Sussman case isn’t just about a fib to the FBI. Durham says Sussman was part of a “joint venture” to create and peddle the slander that Trump was in cahoots with Russia in order to impact the 2016 campaign.
According to Kash Patel, who helped unravel the hoax while working for Devin Nunes, Durham has:
Hard evidence, emails and text messages, showing the Clinton Campaign, Fusion GPS, Perkins Coie, (Rodney) Joffe, and the media were all synced in August of 2016 pushing the false Alfa Bank server story, while also all working on the Steele Dossier matter.
The judge has ordered Fusion GPS to turn over 22 emails, primarily exchanges with Sussman. Also, a Fusion GPS computer researcher named Laura Seago has been given limited immunity. She apparently has a tale to tell.
