Bob Woodward, an investigative reporter who works for The Washington Post, has been in the business of ‘dirty little secrets’ so long that he was part of the team who cast a light on Richard Nixon during Watergate. In fact, once Fox News even called him a Watergate legend. Well, it has become quite obvious that now he has his sights set on President Trump and his administration. In fact, he makes it very clear where he stands when it comes to President Trump in his new “secret” book, ‘Fear’.
Yes, it was a secret because he told no one about it for the past 19 months he’s been writing it. He wanted to keep a ‘low profile’ while he researched what he planned to include in the book. There was a press release for ‘Fear’ that described the book as “an unprecedented look into the harrowing life inside Donald Trump’s White House and how the president makes decisions on major foreign and domestic policies”.
Woodward claims that he engaged in “hundreds of hours of interviews with firsthand sources”. It is for this reason, we can tip a hat to the man’s work ethic despite the difference of opinion we have with him regarding President Trump and the administration. I am going to show you why right now.
Bob Woodward had an interview with Hugh Hewitt recently, in fact just a few days ago. In this interview what he revealed arguably gives President Trump supporters a very good reason to send a fat “IN YOUR FACE!” telegram to Democrats.
Check this out!
“So let’s set aside the Comey firing, which as a Constitutional law professor, no one will ever persuade me can be obstruction. And Rod Rosenstein has laid out reasons why even if those weren’t the president’s reasons. Set aside the Comey firing. Did you, Bob Woodward, hear anything in your research in your interviews that sounded like espionage or collusion?” Hugh Hewitt asked Woodward.
“I did not, and of course, I looked for it, looked for it hard,” Woodward answered. “And so you know, there we are. We’re going to see what Mueller has, and Dowd may be right. He has something that Dowd and the president don’t know about, a secret witness or somebody who has changed their testimony. As you know, that often happens, and that can break open or turn a case.”
“But you’ve seen no collusion?” Hewitt asked again to confirm.”
“I have not,” Woodward affirmed.”
Hewitt would once again ask Woodward about collusion at the conclusion of the interview.
“Very last question, Bob Woodward, I just want to confirm, at the end of two years of writing this book, this intensive effort, you saw no effort, you, personally, had no evidence of collusion or espionage by the president presented to you?” Hewitt asked.”
“That is correct,” Woodward said.”
Now if that isn’t satisfying to read, I don’t know what is. Not once, but twice Woodward clarified that he did not find ANY evidence of collusion during his research. This is coming from the same investigative reporter that was called at one time ‘a legend’ for his work. I mean, this is a man who is known for his extensive interviews with first witnesses, and research into documents, meeting notes, calendars, and even diaries. He is praised for how he constructs seamless narratives of events that he tells through the eyes of actual key participants.
Even the left knows this about him.
So, you can bet that him saying not once, but twice that he found zero evidence of collusion, is going be a real slap in the face for the left. Maybe if we listen very carefully we will be able to feel the tremor being caused by a nation full of ‘triggering’ liberals right this very second!
But I digress…
Despite this, there is still a lot of manipulative work he put into the book as well. For example, the petty stuff he made sure to include, was absolutely ridiculous.
Things such as:
“Fear: Trump In The White House also details President Trump’s explosive rants.”
“He is said to have called Attorney General Jeff Sessions “mentally retarded”, allegedly adding: “He’s this dumb Southerner. … He couldn’t even be a one-person country lawyer down in Alabama.”
I’d like to give a moment now to Trump, to clear things up on this.
There were also many schoolyard claims about White House Chief John Kelly such as the following:
“White House chief of staff John Kelly frequently lost his temper and referred to President Donald Trump as “unhinged” and an “idiot,” author Bob Woodward writes in his new book “Fear: Trump in the White House.”
We can clear that up to, since the book’s release Kelly has had something to say about this claim.
“Kelly, in a statement Tuesday, denied the claims as simply “not true.” White House press secretary Sarah Sanders also refuted the book’s claims.”
“Kelly said in his statement that “the idea I ever called the President an idiot is not true . . . . As I stated back in May and still firmly stand behind: ‘I spend more time with the President than anyone else, and we have an incredibly candid and strong relationship. He always knows where I stand, and he and I both know this story is total BS.'”
“I’m committed to the President, his agenda, and our country,” Kelly said. “This is another pathetic attempt to smear people close to President Trump and distract from the administration’s many successes.”
“Sanders said Tuesday that “This book is nothing more than fabricated stories, many by former disgruntled employees, told to make the president look bad.”
Needless to say, the book ‘Fear’ is just another ‘he said, she said’ work created with the purpose of adding fire to the left’s agenda and casting doubt upon the shoulders our President, but do you think it will have that effect at all? We want to know what you think!

Bernie Sanders: “There Is No Middle Ground,” ‘We’re Going To Stop Using Gas & Coal’
Gotta love when Millionaire communists lecture you on what you can and can’t do. Good thing he will never be elected President!
Via The Daily Caller:
2020 candidate and self-described democratic socialist Bernie Sanders said that the United States has to stop using gasoline and coal, and that “there ain’t no middle ground” on the issue.
“It is no secret that we must transition away from fossil fuels, period. End of discussion. There ain’t no middle ground…There is no middle ground,” Sanders said during a speech Thursday in California.
The Independent Vermont senator released a climate plan Thursday modeled after the “Green New Deal” that called for $16 trillion in new spending to fight climate change.
A key part of the plan is “Justice for frontline communities,” which refers to “under-resourced groups, communities of color, Native Americans, people with disabilities, children and the elderly – to recover from, and prepare for, the climate impacts, including through a $40 billion Climate Justice Resiliency Fund.”
Sanders’ plan, which is modeled as a “Green New Deal,” also targets “environmental racism.”
“The Green New Deal must serve to address modern and historical inequities and environmental racism,” it reads.
Sanders has sought to separate himself from the field of other 2020 Democratic contenders by proposing far-left plans on a variety of issues.
On health care, Sanders supports a “Medicare for All” style plan which would eliminate private health insurance plans and give free health care to illegal immigrants. Continue Reading
Bernie Sanders Says His $16-Trillion Green New Deal-Like Plan Will Create 20 Million Jobs
Via Daily Caller:
Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders introduced a $16.3-trillion plan similar to the Green New Deal on Thursday, which he says will create 20 million jobs.
The plan aims to make 100% of energy for U.S. electricity and transportation renewable by 2030 and have “complete decarbonization” by 2050, according to its outline.
Bernie Sanders just spoke at a rally in downtown Sacramento. Trump supporters showed up & they didn't attack or beat anyone. They just politely discussed their political beliefs with those in attendance. Wonder if MSM will cover that. @realDonaldTrump @DonaldJTrumpJr @Scavino45 pic.twitter.com/e1e8gAbZPW

“As President, Bernie Sanders will boldly embrace the moral imperative of climate change and mobilize the political will necessary for a wholesale transformation of our society, with massive investments in sustainable energy, energy efficiency, and a transformation of our transportation system,” his plan reads.
