Well, hello everyone. The Lupus flare is still with me, but seems a tad less flarey this morning. You can imagine how frustrating it was for me yesterday to not be able to write a thing about Pipe-Bomb-ageddon.
I woke up at three and almost came downstairs to my office to write something, but decided I needed the sleep more.
So here I am – flared up and ready to go.
I have to admit that yesterday was one of those days that makes me eternally grateful I don’t have cable TV.
Just perusing the blue-checkmark “journalists” Twitter comments about Pipe-Bomb-ageddon was bad enough.
In the interests of full disclosure, I should admit that my spider senses are tingling so hard over Pipe-Bomb-ageddon that I feel like I’m lying under a pile of personal massagers.
Now, I’m not big on conspiracy theories. Most of them are so far afield, I just roll my eyes over them.
But something about Pipe-Bomb-ageddon just stinks to high heaven.
Timing, for example.
Thirteen days before a contentious election and suddenly a bunch of pipe bombs turn up and the targets are all Democrats?
Come on. I wasn’t born yesterday. And I didn’t just fall off a turnip truck from Guatemala.
The “Democrats are the party of the Mob” talking point is clearly having a negative effect on their much anticipated Blue Wave. And what better way to shift that talking point away from the Democrats than the conveniently-timed Pipe-Bomb-ageddon?
Plus, it just doesn’t make sense.
Why would a Trump supporter try and blow up Maxine Waters? She is a gift to our side.
Come to think of it, so are Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton.
And CNN? Hell, it’s already imploding. Why would anyone on our side want to give those idiots yet another opportunity to play the victim?
It just doesn’t make a lick of sense.
No. My gut tells me this is a ham-handed attempt to smear the “Right” as the violent ones in order to deflect from the actual violence on the Left.
But the reality is, I don’t know the facts.
I’m not going to lie to you and pretend I don’t have my suspicions. But I don’t know who’s behind Pipe-Bomb-ageddon. Neither do you.
And, when you get right down to the ooey-gooey center, neither does anyone in the media.
Only, they don’t seem to realize that.
The hysterical drama queens at CNN are all pointing the finger of blame at “President Trump’s rhetoric” and “the Right.”
But they don’t know any more than we do.
Speculation over something like this is a deeply stupid idea for those in the news media – especially when they are pretending their reckless speculation is Truth.
Their job is not to speculate or accuse; their job is to report the facts.
But when have they ever done that?
And in their effort to use Pipe-Bomb-ageddon to attack Donald Trump, the media is only pouring gasoline on the rhetoric fire.
Right now they are the ones inflaming people.
They are the ones being reckless.
But because the Left always pushes too hard and too far, the media has run headlong into the abyss without thinking it through.
And when an arrest is made and the perpetrator identified, the idiots at CNN, MSNBC and every major network and newspaper are going to look like fools if they’re wrong.
They’ve gone so far out on a limb over this that there’s no walking it back.
Now, I understand why they’re doing it.
They have an election to win.
And they believe that smearing and slandering Donald Trump and painting “the Right” as violent will help them win it – facts be damned.
CNN and Zucker better PRAY whoever did this isnt some left wing jackass tryin to stir up chaos & make it seem like a Republican did it… Because if it is some punkass liberal, the DRAGGING Trump will give them will be biblical.. Jus sayin@instapundit

Democrats and the news media have spent the last two years stoking anger at Trump.
They have excused and outright defended the violence perpetrated by Antifa.
They actually joked about the attack on Rand Paul.
And the attempted assassination of Republicans on a baseball field was quickly memory-holed – despite the fact that Steve Scalise nearly died.
On top of that, just days before President Trump’s inauguration, the idiots at CNN actually fantasized over what would happen if both Trump and Pence were assassinated before they were sworn in.
And then there’s the New York Times’ assassination porn from this Tuesday.
New York Times: Be sure to read the story we published depicting Trump getting assassinated.
New York Times: We need to have a serious conversation about Trump’s rhetoric.

Despite all that, these idiots who ignored elected Democrats’ actual calls for violence want you to think that chanting “Lock her up!” at a Trump rally caused Pipe-Bomb-ageddon.
The American news media has become completely irresponsible.
And in a time like this, shouldn’t they be leading the calls for calm? Or at the very least, shouldn’t they stop breathlessly and angrily speculating while hurling accusations?
This kind of stupid, irresponsible behavior is not only dangerous; it will backfire on them in a big way.
