Today’s Campaign Update
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)
Those gun-banning Parkland high school kids have had a major impact on U.S. public opinion after all. It turns out that they’ve convinced a record number of Americans it’s time to go out and buy a…wait for it…new gun!
Yep, most certainly as a direct result of the anti-gun posing by the insipid David Hogg and his fellow transparent back pack-carrying students – and of course, the media frenzy that surrounded them – gun sales set new records in the U.S. during the month of March. The National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS) recorded an all-time high 2.7 million gun sales in March, during the same weeks in which CNN was filling its 24-hour coverage with panel after panel of anti-gun zealots and a couple hundred thousand high school kids and professional protesters marched on Washington demanding a ban on gun sales.
The fake news media would have you all believe there is tremendous support for repealing the 2nd Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. The official government statistics would indicate otherwise. Go figure.
A crazy woman named Nasim Najafi Aghdam shot up YouTube headquarters in San Bruno, CA on Tuesday, apparently because the videos she posted on that social media outlet had been falling in popularity. Her videos were a mix of virulent animal rights and vegan eating screeds, along with what some are describing as “bizarre” musical parodies.
In other words, she was an animal-hugging, quinoa-eating activist who wanted to be Weird Al Yankovic when she grew up. Hard to imagine why that particular combination would not appeal to every American, right? Ok, maybe not.
Anyway, the odd thing about the narrative we’re receiving from law enforcement on this incident thus far is that Ms. Aghdam – who committed suicide after injuring three YouTube employees – was actually questioned by local police in the wee hours of the morning after her family had reported her to be missing. According to the police report, Ms. Agham’s father actually informed the police that she might be going to the YouTube headquarters because she “hated” the company.
But when police came upon her as she was sleeping in her car near the YouTube campus, they simply questioned her and sent her along her merry way, and then called the father to tell him that all was well, nothing to see here. Oops.
So, as with so many other recent mass shooting incidents, we have a situation in which law enforcement had been made aware of the shooter and did nothing to prevent the crime from happening. What an incredibly disturbing pattern.
Things are getting a little weird over at MSNBC. Ok, make that even more weird than they always have been at the leftwing fake news network.
Former Bush Administration pretend-conservative Nicole Wallace, who now barely even pretends to be sort of conservative anymore in her role as fake news host, was startled on air when, in the middle of an interview about the situation in San Bruno, she jumped when she thought she had heard gunfire in the studio. It turned out that someone in the control room had opened a can of Coke. Holy cow. I swear I don’t make this stuff up.
Meanwhile, in Trump/Russia Collusion fantasyland… – The fake news media will try to spin this as bad news, but Special Counsel Robert Mueller actually gave President Trump’s lawyers very good news in a recent briefing on his investigation. The Chicago Tribune reports that Mueller informed Trump’s legal team that the President “remains under investigation” but “does not consider him a criminal target” at this point.
Mueller further said that he is “preparing a report about the president’s actions while in office and potential obstruction of justice”, and still wants to interview Mr. Trump before completing that report. Taken all together, what all of this means is that, 9 months into his investigation, Mr. Mueller is holding the same big bag of nothing related to the President that he has held since last summer. He is desperate to “interview” Mr. Trump in the hopes of catching him in some sort of inconsistent answer that he can then form into a process crime with which to charge the President.
Because let’s be honest here: Process crimes – lying to the FBI, etc. – is all Mueller has brought against any American in this endless, abusive investigation. Why? Because there was no collusion with Russia by any Trump people – though we now know there was tons by the Clinton Campaign and the DNC – and Mueller’s efforts to muster up an obstruction of justice charge depend entirely on claims made by proven liars like James Comey and Andrew McCabe.
If Mueller were the honest and forthright individual the fake news media keeps claiming he is, he’d write his report, fold up his tent, and take the patriotic action of going home. No one should expect that to happen anytime soon.
Just another day in Trump/Russia collusion fantasy America.
That is all.
