Eric Ciaramella’s Name Is Not a Secret, and #TeamTrump Only Hires Winners

Posted on | January 30, 2020 | 3 Comments

Working from a McDonald’s here this morning because my brother Kirby has an all-day doctor’s appointment at the VA Medical Center, and contributions to the tip jar would be sincerely appreciated. Meanwhile, in the Historic Impeachment™ drama, Jake Tapper is a whiny bitch:

Trump campaign deputy director of communications Matt Wolking retweeted this tweet by Paul Sperry, which features the name of the alleged whistleblower:

And CNN’s Jake Tapper is on it:

Does Wolking’s retweet constitute a “formal threat” or nah?

Honestly, it’s kind of strange for Tapper to be hyperventilating about this. For better or for worse, Eric Ciaramella’s name has been out there for a while now.

This entire Historic Impeachment™ drama — which has done no real harm to Trump, but turned into a debacle for Democrats — was begun when Ciaramella decided, on the basis of hearsay, to play tattletale. He is not an actual “whistleblower,” since he had been kicked out of the White House for suspicion of leaking to the media and thus had no direct knowledge of the Ukraine phone call that was allegedly the “high crime” for which Adam Schiff and Nancy Pelosi decided that Trump needed to be impeached. The fact that someone as untrustworthy as Ciaramella continues to be employed at the CIA is the real scandal.

The reason that Jake Tapper and others want to pretend that Eric Ciaramella’s name is a secret — and, as I’ve noted, Facebook will ban you for saying the name of the “whistleblower” — is because knowledge of what actually happened contradicts the Democrats’ narrative.

Those are just three headlines that Jake Tapper and the rest of the “fake news” media don’t want Americans to know about, because they show that the origins of the Historic Impeachment™ drama are connected to the origins of the “Russian collusion” hoax which, as everyone now knows, was a phony “scandal” ginned up by Hillary Clinton’s campaign using the Steele dossier as a pretext for surveillance of the Trump campaign. So now Jake Tapper is trying to play tattletale on Matt Wolking, as if the Trump campaign’s deputy communications director doesn’t know what he’s doing? Oh, baby, was Jake ever wrong about that!

This is the “Streisand Effect” in action — by pretending that we have to treat Eric Ciaramella’s name like it’s top-secret classified information, Tapper and other Democrat operatives in the media have inadvertently made everyone curious to know the identity of the “whistleblower.”

Matt Wolking is a guy I’ve known about 10 years, and I’ve known his wife longer than that. She was working the registration desk at a Young America’s Foundation conference I covered in 2007, and she was so cute that I never forgot her name. Alisa was among the guests (along with Andrew Breitbart, Ace of Spades and Mary Katherine Ham) at the notorious CPAC party that Matt Vadum and I threw in 2008, where the hotel security showed up to shut us down just about the time Rep. Bob Barr arrived. Then, when I was covering the giant Tea Party rally in Washington in September 2009, Alisa spotted me in the crowd and talked me into getting her backstage where she chatted up an Indiana congressman named Mike Pence. Anyway, she and Matt have two kids now, and Matt’s working for the Trump campaign, getting paid to make a fool out of Jake Tapper. Life is good. Winning is good.


So here I am at the National Affairs Desk, where breakfast cost me $6.55, and Kirby just called from the VA Medical Center to say they’ll give him a lunch break at noon and he wants me to bring him a Quarter Pounder With Cheese ($4.59) for lunch, so I’ll once more remind our readers that the Five Most Important Words in the English Language are:


Thanks in advance. We’re winning, but we still gotta eat.

    […]… Eric’s Ciaramella’s Name Is Not a Secret, and #TeamTrump Only Hires Winners This report consists of a long thread of Twitter posts. Fascinating and highly expositive. EVERYONE knows that Ciaramella is the ‘whistleblower’!! – The nasty hound dog Schiff insists that his ‘ID must be protected’ when he knows full well that Ciaramella is a household word among everyone involved in this disgusting farce.
