Say, remember that “Believe All Women!” mantra that we’re all supposed to embrace regardless of evidence, or else we’re sexist pigs? Well, maybe don’t believe the woman who accused Las Vegas casino mogul Steve Wynn of rape in 2018, costing him his position as chairman of Wynn Resorts while she became a “MeToo” heroine.
Wynn just won his defamation lawsuit against her, and some of her outlandish claims that the media didn’t cover at the time because they didn’t fit the PC narrative are now public. For instance, her claim that she’s the mother of Wynn’s daughter, who was born at least six years before she claimed Wynn raped her...and that she was the model for Picasso’s “Le Reve,” which was painted over a decade before she was born. Also, she reportedly admitted to Wynn’s attorney that she asked for $150 million to drop her accusation.
Wynn said he’d never even seen the woman before he came to court, and he testified, “You’d have to be delusional not to understand that they were lies and fabrications of the worst order. What I’m asking for is to have this miserable fiction finally called for what it is, a miserable fiction.”
The judge obliged, ruling that she made a false police report and her story was “totally fanciful.” See, this is why we don’t abolish due process, even for members of demographic groups liberals don’t like. Now, if someone would just tell Steve Wynn which casino window can refund his reputation.
Must-See (And Cringe) Video: Jim Treacher of PJ Media implores you to show some sympathy for the poor liberal news media, who have to convince us that Trump’s news conference displayed his incompetence (even though the Dow rocketed 2,000 points after it)…while also convincing us that Joe Biden is our brilliant savior (even though his Facebook Live townhall was such a disaster that at one point, he simply wandered off camera in mid-sentence.) A Biden campaign logo was hurriedly thrown on screen while, I presume, his handlers sent out a Silver Alert to determine where Joe had wandered off to.
The media’s attempts to undermine confidence in the President during a health crisis are becoming so blatant that I sense Americans are getting fed up, and maybe some of the biased reporters may have enough brains to sense that, too. For instance, many media outlets gleefully pointed out how stock futures plummeted during President Trump’s address to the nation. They tried to paint it as the market having no confidence in Trump’s leadership, rather than what it really was: the inevitable reaction to him having to deliver bad news.
So when he started to give his press conference on Friday, and the Dow dropped by 300 points at the start, former New York Times reporter Jim Roberts tried to get snarky with a tweet about that. Sadly for his narrative, the Dow quickly rebounded by almost 2,000 points, the biggest one-day gain since 2008.
And how did Roberts respond? By apologizing? Admitting he was wrong? No, of course not. He simply deleted that tweet, then tried to spin a major accomplishment by Trump into a negative. But he forgot: the Internet is forever…
It’s not often that I see possibly the dumbest statement of the year by a national government mouthpiece, only to see it followed by the dumbest social media comment of the year.
The former came when China’s state-run news outlet, Xinhua, editorialized that the US owes China an apology for criticizing its response to the coronavirus and threatened that China could cut off exports of medicine to the US, plunging America into “the mighty sea of coronavirus.”
Okay, imagine you’re a nation that just suffered three years of economic decline because of a trade war with the US. You desperately need to rebuild a trust and a good relationship with the US. So you threaten to cut off our medicines. This is not only a stark reminder that we cannot trust China to manufacture our necessities, like pharmaceuticals, computer parts, etc., but it’s also a ringing vindication of Trump’s call to divest from China, diversify our suppliers and bring essential industries back to the US. That threat may have been aimed at Trump, but it actually boomeranged on China. It made Trump's point in a bone-chilling way, and blew away all the elite globalists who’ve been dismissing his warnings about China since 2016.
And what was the dumbest social media comment? Someone on Twitter said Trump couldn’t stand up to China because “we owe them a trillion dollars.”
Pardon me, but…doesn’t that fall under the category of “China’s problem”? And think for a moment who this guy is talking about: Donald Trump. The man who once forced banks to deal with him on his terms because they’d loaned him so much money that if he defaulted on the loan, they’d go bankrupt. I have a feeling that he will not be intimidated by how much money China thinks we owe them.

Obvious Observation of the Day: A Seattle radio host told Tucker Carlson on Fox News about the city’s concerns over the possible spread of the coronavirus among the huge homeless population, due to their poor hygiene and inability to follow rules. This prompted them to wonder who could ever have anticipated that there might be a health downside to leftist politicians allowing insane people to live and defecate on garbage-filled public sidewalks as if they were running Calcutta?
