Today’s Campaign Update (Because The Campaign Never Ends) – 5.8.2017

  • I love the sound of Sierra Club wails in the evening.:  Those loud explosions you heard Friday evening weren’t North Korean rockets going up in flames a few seconds after liftoff; they were the sounds of heads exploding all around the nation’s Climate Fraud Lobby, after the Trump Administration got rid of fully half of the political hacks who had occupied seats on an EPA “Scientific Review Board”.  EPA has in the past filled such panels with political fellow travelers, many of them “scientists” who themselves receive mucho dinero in federal grants to “research” climate-related issues, and thus are little more than rubber stamps for anything EPA wants to do.  Given that their entire climate scam is based on EPA actions and endorsements, the Climate Fraud Lobby is mightily upset at the prospect of having those seats replaced by people who might actually question some EPA regulatory priorities.  Go figure.
  • Uh, would you care to revise and extend those remarks, Congressman?:  Idaho Republican congressman Raul Labrador told a townhall audience over the weekend that “nobody dies because they don’t have access to healthcare,” which, in a year in which unbelievably stupid utterances from Democrat public officials has become more the norm than the exceptions, may well be the single most unbelievably stupid utterance of all.
  • They love her, they really, really love her!:  Speaking of Democrat public officials who regularly say incredibly stupid things, California Cong. Maxine Waters got herself a standing ovation when she was introduced to the audience at the MTV Movie and Television Awards.  Which, given that the average IQ in that audience is approximately the same as the average parakeet, is completely appropriate.
  • Speaking of people with low IQs, residents of Islamic terrorism-ravaged Paris cast 90% of their votes in Sunday’s presidential elections for a guy who is famous for saying that “there is no such thing as ‘French culture.'”  And so, soon, there won’t be.
  • Don’t put your money where SJWs are allowed to run amok.:  Enrollment at the University of Missouri continues to implode, with latest figures showing that freshmen enrollment for the 2016/17 session off by more than 35% in the two years since the massive campus protests in 2015, and the feckless handling of campus social justice warriors by school officials.  Heat Street also reports that contributions from alumni and athletics boosters to the school have plummeted, with giving to the athletics department down by a whopping 62%.  Hopefully, this will become a national trend.
  • Reliance on the public’s stupidity has its limits.:  Obamacare architect Jonathan Gruber, who famously admitted to a congressional committee that the only way he and Barack Obama were able to sell the monstrosity was due to “the stupidity of the American public”, appeared on Fox News Sunday to debate Karl Rove on the Republican reform bill that was passed by the House of Representatives on Thursday.  Predictably, things did not go well for Mr. Gruber, as Rove yanked out his trusty white board and refuted every lie Gruber had told.  In case you missed it, there’s a clip at this link.  Good stuff.
  • They love him, they really, real…oh wait, no, they still hate him.:  Now that Obamacare reform has passed the House, the fake news media is turning its attention to the Senate, desperate to find some way to kill the effort there.  One tactic they’ll try early is fawning over Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, portraying him as the “cool head” who will stop the wild man Trump in his tracks.  A great example of this tactic is this piece in The Atlantic, which carries the headline “There’s Something About Mitch.”  One thing the fake media will find out quickly about Mitch is that he’s pretty much impervious to this sort of cajoling exercise, especially coming from fake news outlets that have never previously had a positive word to say about him.  So this little honeymoon period for Mitch won’t last very long, and the inevitable demonization exercise will begin shortly.  Because that’s what the fake news media does.

Just another day in wailing Sierra Club America.

That is all.
