Government Shutdown, Day 2: At the FBI, Corruption Remains an Essential Service

  • It’s Day 2 of the Great 14% Government Shutdown of 2018.  Believe it or not, the sun is still going to rise in the East, promise.  Your kids still get to go to school.  Your TV and internet services are still going to function, so you’ll still get to watch all those people on CNN and MSNBC – and hell, even Shepherd Smith on Fox News – lie about the news all day long.  Your junk mail will still be delivered by the U.S. Postal Service, and your real mail will still arrive via UPS, Federal Express, or your email in-box.  If you have a social security check due to day, it will be there.  If you need Medicare or Medicaid benefits, you’ll still get them.  All of these “essential” government services and more will chug right along as if nothing has happened.
  • But over at CNN, the world is coming to an end.  Yes, friends, if you live the fantasy world created by the fake news reporters and fake news editors and fake news cameramen who work for this fakest news outlet in the entire fake news universe, you’re living in the belief this morning that shutting down 14% of the federal government means that a big, nasty asteroid is heading right towards the earth, and WE’RE ALL GONNA DIIIIIIIIEEEEEE!!!!!
  • No kidding, fake reporter Tom Foreman breathlessly told CNN’s audience that, the last time there was a 14% shutdown, “…NASA stopped monitoring potentially dangerous asteroids.  A big one, by the way, is expected to brush by Earth on February 4th.”  I swear I didn’t make that up.
  • Now, for those of you who are rushing to hide in your nearest nuclear bomb shelter after reading that, hang loose for a second while I do a simple Google search on “asteroid near earth February 4.”  Ok, wait a sec….there it is.  First article headline that comes up is “No, an Asteroid is Not Going to Collide With Earth in February.”  See how that works?  Turns out this asteroid is going to cross earth’s orbit on Feb. 4, but at a distance of 2.6 MILLION MILES, which is more than 10 times the distance from the Earth to the Moon.  So, nothing to see here, folks, all is well.  It’s just that CNN’s fake reporters apparently do not have access to Google.  Go figure.
  • Hello, Speaker Ryan?  This is Christopher Wray.  Um, the dog ate my homework. – The FBI informed congress over the weekend that what is ostensibly our nation’s top, numero uno, bestest of all the best law enforcement agencies has had a computer “glitch” and “lost” five months worth of texts between deep state FBI agent Peter Strzok and his illicit lover, deep state DOJ lawyer Lisa Page.  That five month period began on December 14, 2016, the date that the fake news media began pushing the false narrative that Vladimir Putin personally ordered the hacking of the DNC computers in mid-2016.  [Update:  the deletions by the FBI of the Strzok/Page texts ended on May 17, 2017, the day that Robert Mueller was appointed to become Special Counsel by Rod Rosenstein.] If you think that’s just a coincidence and the “loss” of all these texts is really just a computer glitch, well, you probably also believe an asteroid is going to end the Earth on Feb. 4, so there’s not much anyone can do for you at this point.
  • So now we know why FBI Director Christopher Wray and Deputy AG Rod Rosenstein rushed to meet with Speaker Paul Ryan on January 3 to beg him not to force them to release all the documentation on the fake Russia Collusion “investigation” to the House Intelligence Committee,  a demand they had been stonewalling since last August.  They obviously did not want the Committee to have access to these texts, so these texts magically got “lost”, just like 30,000 Hillary Clinton emails magically were “erased.”
  • I say “magically” because, if you know anything about how texts and emails are retained, you know that such messages are not easily “lost” or “erased.”  In fact, it is almost impossible to make such records disappear completely.  Even when you think you’ve erased them from a server, for instance, they are really not gone, and experts can almost always go in and retrieve them.  Text messages aren’t just magically kept on your personal I-Phone, ok?  They are retained on multiple media in multiple locations.  No “glitch” is going to cause them to be “lost” from all of those different media.
  • Oh, stuff like this does happen on episodes of 24, but this is not 24, this is real life.  In real life, those text messages are still out there somewhere, just like Hillary Clinton’s 30,000 deleted emails were out there and eventually “found” by the FBI once that agency thought the scandal had safely passed from the public’s memory.  If the FBI can’t “find” these texts, someone should suggest to House Intel Committee Chairman Devin Nunes that there are at least a million young men aged 20 to 35 living in their grandmothers’ basements who need work, and who, if you put them on the job and provided them with 64 oz. Cherry Slurpees and bags of nacho cheese Doritos, could most likely retrieve those texts before this day is over.
  • Meanwhile, here’s a thought:  Last year, the Trump Administration cancelled the FBI’s Obama-era plans to spend billions of taxpayer dollars on a fancy new headquarters building, on the pretense that the J. Edgar Hoover building is inadequate.  Given the disgraceful corruption displayed by the FBI’s senior leadership during the last five years, utter and complete corruption that appears not to have changed in any real way under Director Wray, why not give them a new headquarters, say, in Leavenworth, Kansas?  It would certainly be fitting.
Just another day in the Obama corruption is hard to kill America.
That is all.

The Government Shutdown, Day 1: Shouting Pussy Hats and Sweating Democrats

  • It’s Sunday, and somehow we’re all still here!  Yes, friends, despite the “shutdown” of almost 14 whole percent of our national government for a full day, American society has inexplicably managed to survive, as 330 million citizens who Democrats don’t give a damn about and 800,000 DACA  “kids” who average 26 years of age who Democrats pretend to care about soldiered on through their daily lives.  It’s a miracle!  God bless us, every one!
  • The pussy hat-wearing, profanity-shouting “Women’s” marchers were back at in on Saturday, and nobody still knows what exactly it is they’re all demonstrating about.  When Fox News began its coverage of the protesters in Washington, panning the crowd at the National Mall, the first sign the camera came across said simply, “F*ck You!”, only without that asterisk.  That was totally appropriate since that seems to be the only truly coherent message the protesters are conveying.
  • But those marchers or protesters or whatever they call themselves were a positive sign for the nation, since their presence at the Mall and in 20-odd other cities across the country meant that the interstate highway system was open and functioning, given that 90% of those people were bused into those cities and paid to be there in their pussy hats by George Soros.  So hey, the radical left was still able to make its one and only contribution to commerce in the United States despite the government “shutdown.”
  • But maybe the real, true, deep message of the protests was properly conveyed by some rapper who calls himself “Common”.  Mr. Common, rapping to the demonstration held in swanky Park City, Utah, belted out the following to the adoring crowd:
    • “The day the women took over, let it continue. Now women get paid as much as men do,
      Dr. Angelou looking from heaven’s window. Telling young girls phenomenal woman is in you,
      Body is a temple. Men don’t pray. Mother Earth’s arms around you saying it’s OK,
      Toilet seat’s down, that’s a no-brainer. Monuments in Washington of Fannie Lou Hamer,
      Harriet, Sojouner’s truth is marching on. Women preachers and world leaders ain’t out the norm.”   I absolutely swear I did not make that up.
  • Despite having not the slightest clue what Mr. Common was rapping about, the assembled crowd roared its approval, and presumably shouted a bunch of curse words at President Trump.  Because that’s how these things go.
  • Jane Fonda was also there in Park City, because of course Jane Fonda was there.  “Everything is at stake.  We’ve got to give it all we’ve got. Time is up,” she told the crowd of extremely wealthy people, echoing the cliches used by every high school football coach in every halftime speech in America.  You would think someone who’s spent her entire adult life trying to destroy this country at events like this could come up with something better.
  • Back in Washington, politicians in both parties spent the entire day blaming the other side for the 14% shutdown, while doing absolutely nothing to end it.  The Republicans have figured out that this this thing is not harming them politically in any way, so they have no real incentive to offer any more concessions than they already have, and the Democrats spent all day waiting on another poll from CNN to tell them which way to jump.  Unfortunately, no such poll was in the works, so Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi spent the day stuttering and stammering before the TV cameras, looking as if they need to be administered mental acuity exams.
  • Meanwhile, Twitter remained all a-twitter about the four-page memo about Obama-era spying on the Trump Campaign and transition team that was made available for viewing by members of the House of Representatives on Thursday.   Conservatives spent the second straight day demanding the classified memo be released to the public, while nervous leftwingers spent all day demanding it be kept secret because releasing it would be so darn divisive or something.
  • Multiple reports indicate that more than 150 members of the House have now viewed the memo, including no more than 3 Democrats.  Democrats, of course, avoid being exposed to the truth much like the Wicked Witch of the West avoided being exposed to water, since the truth is always fatal to their world view.
  • Despite the impatience from those on the political right, it will probably be a few weeks before the public sees the memo.  Declassifying a document such as this, produced by a congressional committee, is a complex process that requires several levels of approval within congress, the Justice Department and the White House.  That will take some time.
  • Yes, yes, for those of you sitting there thinking, “But the President can declassify anything he wants, you moron!”, I am well aware of that.  But doing that would be seen as a purely political act, and the fake news media would use that to ignore the memo’s content and diminish its impact.
  • Just as with the DOJ Inspector General’s year-long internal investigation of FBI and DOJ wrongdoing, it is best to carefully go through the process, and get all the i’s dotted and t’s crossed, so that no one can be accurately accused of any process violations.
  • Everybody just needs to exercise patience here.  We know for sure that the contents of this memo are damaging to the Democrats.  If they weren’t, bug-eyed Adam Schiff or some other congressional D would have already found a way to leak it to the NYTimes or CNN.
  • Because violating the process is what the Democrats do.  And remember:  The only people sweating this out are Democrats.  We should all be cool with letting them sweat it out for another couple of weeks.
Just another day in sweating Democrats and shouting pussy hats America.
That is all.

The Government Shutdown is Here! The First Round is on Me!

  • Tired of all this Winning yet? – Yesterday’s Campaign Update told you that shutting down the government would be the best outcome for the Republicans.  Lo and behold, we have our government shutdown, as the Republicans completely out-maneuvered the Democrats on one of these things for like the first time ever.  They have President Trump and Chuck Schumer, who completely over-played a terribly weak hand to thank for that.
  • With polls showing that 70% or more of the public wanting to do “something” to “protect” the poor DACA “kids” – many of whom are in their 30s – Schumer and every other Democrat spent the entire week claiming they would not do a deal to extend government funding without including some sort of amnesty for these folks who are in our country illegally.
  • When President Trump called Schumer over to the White House early Friday afternoon, Chuckie boy rushed over with a list of demands in-hand, no doubt expecting Trump to cave, like any of his Republican predecessors would have done in this same situation.  But Trump is not a Bush, and no caving was to be had, so poor Chuckie left the White House in a huff, so obviously angry that he actually passed up a chance to talk to the assembled reporters outside, the first time Mr. Schumer has passed up a chance to have his face on TV since he was in grade school.  At that moment, he no doubt fully intended to get back over the Capitol and hold a presser announcing his caucus was going to shut down the government.
  • But a couple of funny things happened while he was on his way back to the office.  First, he was no doubt told by his staff that the hashtag #SchumerShutdown had been trending on Twitter since Sarah Huckabee Sanders had used the term in her White House press briefing earlier in the day.  Second, CNN released a poll while Schumer was in the Oval Office showing that, by a margin of 56 to 34, people thought it was more important to keep the government open and protect Americans than it is to shut it down over an issue related to 800,000 illegal immigrants.
  • Why was that CNN poll such a big deal?  Well, you have to think like the Democrats think.  While there are still good people in the Democrat Party – no, really, there truly still are a handful of well-intentioned Americans still willing to associate with this band of miscreants – the party itself has no soul.  The party itself really believes in nothing, unless believing in something helps it to obtain and maintain political power.  That’s it.  They don’t really give a damn about these DACA “kids”, unless caring about them helps them in that over-arching goal.  Thus, that CNN poll told them clearly that standing firm on a DACA fix at this time was a horrible political loser for them, bigly.
  • Thus, Schumer and his entire caucus then went into panic mode, and spent the next several hours trying to concoct talking points that would make giving in look like some sort of “victory”, and throwing out an array of alternative plans that would have allowed them to keep the government open while saving a little face.  But Mitch McConnell and his Senate Republicans for once held firm and rejected each and every one of them, even as little Lindsey Graham was conducting shuttle diplomacy between Schumer’s and McConnell’s offices, begging them all to give in one more time.
  • So, we wake up this morning, on the anniversary of Donald Trump’s being sworn into office, with 14% of the federal government technically shut down.  As the Campaign Update said on Friday, this is literally the perfect coda to Trump’s first year in office.  If you want to clean out the swamp, one of the things you simply must do is stop giving in to the Democrats in these idiotic games of political brinksmanship.
  • The real glory in all of this is that President Trump for once does not get all the credit for the GOP finally, at long last, doing the right thing.  The happy fact is that every leader in the congressional GOP played his role perfectly.  Speaker Paul Ryan had his congressional chamber pass the bill that set the tone – with bi-partisan support – on Thursday, and then promptly adjourned the House and sent everyone home so they would not be around to gum up the works any further.  Perfect.
  • McConnell and Senate Majority Whip John Cornyn then played their hand perfectly all day long on Friday, putting out a steady drumbeat of consistent messaging about how the Democrats were ignoring the interests of the millions of American citizens in the name of making a special deal for a relative handful of illegal immigrants, a message that Ryan stayed in town to help push as well.
  • It was all perfect.  Everyone played their roles just right.  They’ll still get blamed for the shutdown by the fake news media, but the panic on the Democrat side clearly demonstrated which party will gain strength from this shutdown come election day.
  • At long last, Donald Trump appears to be rubbing off on members of his own party.  They’re slow learners, but it does seem that these old dogs are capable of learning new tricks.  Tricks like #Winning in situations where they had always lost in the past.  This is a day to celebrate if you really care about this country.
Just another day in President Trump just keeps on #Winning America.
That is all.

A Government Shutdown Would Be the Best Outcome for the GOP

  • Tired of all this Winning yet?  Part I – The New York Times released a poll on Thursday showing Americans’ support for the recently-passed Tax Cuts and Jobs Act is soaring upwards as people wake up to the fact that they’ve been lied to about its impacts by the Democrats and their agents in the fake news media.  This comes before the new tax withholding tables begin to result in higher paychecks for working folks.  Just wait until that kicks in.  This is all very predictable.
  • Tired of all this Winning yet?  Part II – Bloomberg reports that U.S. jobless claims last week fell to their lowest level since 1973.  This likely means that the unemployment rate, already at its lowest point since 2000 at 4.1%, may well fall even further in January.  #Winning.
  • All members of the House Intelligence Committee were given full access to the final tranche of the “Russia Collusion” documents released by the FBI and DOJ on Thursday, along with a four page executive summary report that details the documents’ contents.  The intrepid Sara Carter – one of a small handful of real, actual journalists still working in the nation’s capital these days – reports that Cong. Matt Gaetz and other Republican members of the Committee are so shocked at the wrongdoing at DOJ and the FBI revealed in this report that they are demanding its immediate release to the public.
  • But, Carter says, one ranking member of the Committee told her it could take until the end of the month before that happens.  Why in the world would it take that long?  C’mon, guys, take a cue from California’s bug-eyed Congressman Adam Schiff and the other Democrats on the Committee and just leak the damn thing.  This is a war for the soul of this country: Stop fighting this war with Nerf guns when your opposition keeps fighting it with AR-15s.
  • Well, here we are again:  the Democrats in the Senate are intent upon shutting down 14% of the government until they get amnesty for the 800,000 “DREAMers”, who are in our country illegally, in exchange for agreeing to yet another short-term continuing resolution, and the Republicans are in their standard panic because they know the mean ol’ fake news media will blame them for it all.  This is the most pathetic of all of Washington’s myriad ongoing Kabuki dances that get repeated several times every year.
  • It is also yet another example of how the establishment Republicans who make up the party’s leadership in congress have not the slightest idea what is good for them.  The simple fact of the matter is that the best thing the GOP could do would be to issue a joint announcement from Paul Ryan and Mitch McConnell this morning  that says the Republican members of congress are prepared to pass a clean bill to fund the government through the end of this fiscal year, and will do so as soon as the Democrats in the Senate can produce the 9 votes necessary to get that done.
  • Every Republican in congress should then simply leave town and come back only after the Democrats have produced those 9 votes.  Let the Democrats have their shut-down, and let the American people see, for as long as that lasts, that the only potential impact that has on their lives is that they won’t get to make that trip to Yellowstone or Yosemite that 99.9 percent of them weren’t planning on taking anyway.
  • This is the same principle as what is happening with the tax bill:  As ordinary Americans wake up to the fact that San Fran Nan and everyone at CNN spent months lying to them about what that law really does, their attitudes towards it are changing.  The same thing would happen with a government “shut-down” that only shuts down “non-essential” services that only constitute 14% of the damn government.  Let it happen, and let it go on for as long as it takes, and watch public attitudes change as people wake up to the reality that the Democrats and fake news media have been lying to them about that, too.
  • Besides, the Republicans have a very recent object lesson about government shutdowns that they just refuse to learn from.  The last time the GOP got blamed for shutting down the government – in 2013, when Ted Cruz forced it to happen with a filibuster over Obamacare – what were the consequences for getting blamed for it?
  • The ‘consequence’ was that, 14 months after that shutdown took place, the GOP won its single biggest sea-change congressional blowout in history.  Why did that happen?  Because that filibuster by Senator Cruz proved that at least some congressional Republicans were capable of standing on principle, the GOP base voters turned out in near-record numbers in the 2014 elections as a result.
  • But because that object lesson came from Cruz, who is roundly hated by almost all establishment Republicans, those GOPe members of congress refuse to admit he was right, and continue their skittish ways in these brinksmanship situations.
  • President Trump should also take that object lesson to heart.  A shutdown of the government would be the perfect coda to the end of his first full year in office.  You want to truly clean out the DC Swamp?  Refuse – just refuse to sign any “continuing resolution” and demand that congress do its job and produce a real budget for the rest of FY 2018.  Put an end to all this government shutdown nonsense once and for all.  That would take all this Winning to another level entirely.
  • Sadly, though, the President appears to be taking his advice on this from the same squeamish dimwits who are advising Ryan and McConnell.  That’s too bad, because he is missing a golden opportunity to do something yuuuuge to truly make America great again.
Just another day in squeamish establishment Republicans America.
That is all.

Flake Bombs, CNN Fakes, Trump Wins Again

  • Tired of all this Winning yet?  Part I – The Dow Jones Industrials closed above 26,000 on Wednesday for the first time.  The Dow is now up more than 40% since the day U.S. voters chose to elect Donald Trump to the office of the presidency.
  • Tired of all this Winning yet?  Part II – Apple, of all companies, announced that it will invest more than $350 billion in the U.S. economy over the next 5 years.  The company said it “will commit $55 billion this year alone and plans on adding 20,000 new jobs over that time frame.”  Apple CEO Tim Cook, no fan of President Trump, admitted that much of this new investment and job creation is directly attributable to the recently passed tax bill.
  • So much Winning, but Wednesday was a day for fake news, as fake Republican Senator Jeff Flake took to the well of the senate to condemn President Trump for using the term, after which the President posted his first annual Fake News Awards at the GOP.com website.  In between, CNN naturally got in on the act with its own latest bit of news fakery.
  • Flake, the failed senator from Arizona who makes John McCain look like a loyal member of the GOP, spoke at mid-day before a virtually empty senate chamber.  In his talk, he bizarrely claimed that the first amendment to the constitution renders U.S. news media completely exempt from criticism by the President or anyone else, and compared Mr. Trump to Joseph Stalin, the mass murderer of millions, because he regularly uses the term “fake news” to describe what is unarguably “fake news” that appears at news outlets like CNN, NBC, ABC, the Washington Post and the NY Times.
  • In making his idiotic speech, Sen. Flake showed once again that he embodies everything ordinary Americans hate about politicians.  He is utterly vain, completely without the slightest shred of loyalty, has no discernible set of political principles, and despite his incredibly low standing with his home state voters, possesses an amazingly inflated sense of his own self-importance.
  • Only Jeff Flake believes that anyone other than Jeff Flake gives a flying rat’s ass what Jeff Flake thinks about this subject.  The virtually empty chamber before which Flake gave his speech was the perfect metaphor for this empty suit of a politician.
  • As if to prove Trump’s point, CNN couldn’t help weighing in with its latest in a long line of news fakery, courtesy of its resident fake doctor, the Trump-hating Sanjay Gupta.  Having “diagnosed” the President from the CNN studio, Mr. Gupta, in a desperate last-ditch attempt to salvage the fake media’s “Trump is unfit to serve” narrative that was utterly decimated by White House Physician Ronny Jackson on Tuesday, claimed the President suffers from heart disease and is likely to have a heart attack in the next 3-5 years.
  • That this armchair diagnosis by a fake TV “doctor” conflicted directly with the assessment given by the highly-respected White House physician who has served three different presidents matters not to the news fakers at CNN.  Credibility is not a consideration a their network – only the narrative of the day that has been coordinated with the Democrat Party matters.  Jackson described the President’s heart health as “amazing” for a man of his age, and said he has no concerns about Mr. Trump remaining perfectly healthy through not just one, but two terms in office.  CNN simply could not allow that to stand, and Gupta’s report was its answer.  Fake News, defined.
  • Early Wednesday evening, the President posted his 2017 Fake News Awards at the GOP.com website.  After he tweeted out the announcement, the traffic was so enormous that the site crashed within a few seconds.
  • CNN walked away the night’s big winner, earning four of the ten trophies for fake stories like:
    • Falsely editing video of the President with the Japanese Prime Minister to make it appear he carelessly over-fed fish on his visit to Japan;
    • Having to fire three employees over a fake Russia-related story the network was forced to retract;
    • Falsely reporting that Trump lied when he claimed that James Comey had told him he was not  under investigation for Russia ties; and
    • Falsely claiming that Donald Trump, Jr. had been given special access to WikiLeaks documents before they had been publicly released.
  • ABC’s disgraced fake reporter Brian Ross landed the runner-up award for filing a fake report that momentarily crashed the stock market back in November.  Ross was put on a month-long “leave” by ABC after his latest in a long line of fake reporting, but is now back at work for the fake news network.
  • But the big winner of the night was the New York Times resident fake economist Paul Krugman, who gravely told America on election night 2016 that the stock markets would “never recover” from the election of Donald Trump to the presidency.  As pointed out at the beginning of today’s update, the Dow is up more than 40% since Krugman – who actually owns a Nobel Prize in economics, proving just how fake the Nobel Committee has become – made his prediction.
  • Given how the day went, it seems appropriate to point out that the word “Flake” is “Fake” with an “L” added in.  The “L” is for loser.
Just another day in Donald Trump just keeps on Winning America.
That is all.

Cory Booker, Luis Gutierrez and the White House Press Corps: Perfect Faces for the Democrat Party

  • The Democrat/fake news media effort to paint President Donald Trump as a racist became the theater of the absurd on Tuesday, thanks to the histrionics of Cory Booker and the lack of self-awareness of Rep. Luis Gutierrez.
  • In ranting against Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen during a hearing, the execrable Sen. Booker used language and bullying gestures that would have made any Republican a target of the #Metoo movement.  He gets a pass from the fake news media because he’s a Democrat targeting a Republican woman – who we all know that liberals consider to be fair targets for harassement – but Booker’s behavior, in any other workplace, would be cause for firing given that it was clearly harassment of the worst kind.
  • Note to congressional Democrats:  You work in a workplace environment that is among the most abusive in the entire country, outside of NBC.  The fact that you consider yourselves exempt from the sexual harassment laws under which everyone else in America must live is one of the main reasons why Donald Trump is President today, and why he will probably become a two-term president.  It’s going to be a long, long 8 years for you people.
  • Speaking of execrable human beings, Illinois Democrat (because of course he’s a Democrat) Luis Guitierrez took the whole “Trump is a racist” narrative a step further, telling an interviewer that Trump could “lead the Ku Klux Klan.”  Um, we’ve had former Klan associates in the White House in the past, Congressman.  Their names were Woodrow Wilson and Harry Truman.  Both were Democrats.
  • We’ve had Klan leaders in congress as well – they were all, including famous Klan Kleagle Robert Byrd – Democrats.  Byrd’s fellow Democrats were so fond of him that they ended up elevating him to Senate Majority Leader.  The fact is that the Klan was a creation of the Democrat Party, and served as the armed wing of the Democrat Party for many decades.  It only started to lose its power when folks in the South started voting for Republicans.
  • Mr. Guitierrez is not running for re-election to congress this year, and has told various folks that he may well run for the presidency in 2020.  Let’s hope he does – he’d be the perfect representative for the Democrat Party:  irrational, obtuse, ineffective, enraged and ignorant.
  • Maybe it is time for Sen. Orrin Hatch to retire after all.  During a hearing on Tuesday, Sen. Hatch reached up with both hands to carefully remove his reading glasses from his head and slowly lower them to the table in front of him.  The only problem:  Sen. Hatch was not wearing his reading glasses.  Have a wonderful retirement, Senator, you deserve it.
  • White House Physician Ronny Jackson spent a full hour before Tuesday’s daily press briefing, reviewing the physical and mental cognitive exam he and other doctors administered to President Trump last Friday.  Dr. Jackson told the assembled slack-jawed fake reporters that the President scored a perfect 30 for 30 on the cognitive test, a conclusive refutation of the stupid charge that has run rampant in the fake news media that the President is crazy.  Dr. Jackson also told the reporters that, although Mr. Trump is clearly overweight and doesn’t consume the most ideal diet – to put it mildly – he can thank his genes for his excellent overall physical health.
  • Dr. Jackson has served George W. Bush, Barack Obama and now Donald Trump as White House physician.  Prior to that, he served two tours in Iraq as an emergency field surgeon.  He is a highly-regarded Rear Admiral in the U.S. Navy.  His credentials, in other words, are simply unassailable.  No rational human being would question his judgment.
  • But these aren’t rational human beings we’re talking about here – they’re fake reporters.  Rather than take this highly-qualified physician’s word for the findings, fake reporters who make up the White House press corps, seeing their “Trump is unfit for the job” narrative circling down the drain before their very eyes, pelted him with idiotic questions that only exposed their own rank stupidity for the next hour.  These people are the most contemptible human beings on the planet.  No wonder they’re all Democrats.
Just another day in the worst people in the world are all Democrats America.
That is all.

Any Day Ben Rhodes is Left Speechless is a Good Day for America

  • A new HBO Film that fake-documents the last year of the Obama Administration will premier on Jan. 19.  The Daily Caller reports this morning that the film contains a scene in which ex-UN Ambassador and serial unmasker Samantha Power hosts an Election Night “female empowerment” party for women diplomats from all over the world to celebrate the impending victory by the Pantsuit Princess.  “I thought what an amazing night for them. I mean, that’s what America represents to the world, when a glass ceiling is shattered in our country, it creates a whole new sense of possibility for people everywhere,” Power says.  Things didn’t turn out quite the way Ms. Power wanted, and she and her party guests went to bed sad.
  • In the film, Obama propagandist Ben Rhodes recounts how he was so stunned by the election results that he couldn’t use his words:  “I am usually not without thoughts and words. But you know, I think—I kept trying—beginning to say something.”  What’s the matter – cat got your tongue?
  • But of course, it wasn’t a cat who had the wordy Mr. Rhodes tongue.  More likely, it was the realization that all the efforts by so many Obama evil minions to try to ensure victory for the Fainting Felon had gone astray, and that there would be consequences to be paid for those efforts.
  • On Friday, the Inspector General’s office of the Department of Justice began the process of releasing the 1.2 million supporting documents related to its investigation of the election campaign-related activities of various DOJ/FBI employees, a group that I’ve referred to as the Deep State Cabal.  As the first step in that process, the OIG released several hundred thousand documents to the members of the House Intelligence Committee for viewing.
  • This release came a week after DOJ had released the remainder of its documents related to the fake investigation of the Fainting Felon’s illegal email server, an investigation that has now been reopened at the order of Attorney General Jeff Sessions.  It came just a few days after DOJ had announced the first indictment related to the Uranium One scandal, and on the heels of announcements that DOJ was pursuing active investigations into Uranium One, the activities of the Clinton Foundation while the Pantsuit Princess served as Secretary of State, and the Project Cassandra scandal.
  • Mr. Rhodes and Ms. Power were left so distraught on Election Night 14 months ago because they knew this day would come.  They, and all the participants in the Deep State Cabal had bet everything on a huge win by their Cackling Candidate.  Had she won, all of the Cabal’s crimes against the country would have been covered up and shunted off to the dustbin of history.  That was the plan – it was going to work, it had to work, because no one thought to put in place a contingency plan for failure.
  • But it didn’t work.  There are many reasons why, one of which is that Admiral Mike Rogers, Director of the National Security Agency, intervened.  The Cabal had begun its spying activities on the Trump Campaign in early 2016 via the use of hundreds of “unmasking requests” under Section 702 of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA).  Rogers became aware of this unusually high number of such requests in April 2016, traced them to their source and discovered that a subcontractor to the FBI had been data mining the NSA Signals Intelligence database, the database that logs every communication made by every American every day.
  • Rogers shut this practice down, and the Cabal was forced to scramble to devise another means of continuing its spying on the Trump Campaign.  We now know that this led to the DNC and Clinton Campaign’s decision to spend millions of dollars funding the compiling – in coordination with Russian agents – of the fake Trump Dossier, and that Dossier ended up at James Comey’s FBI in early summer 2016.  We know that, after obtaining that Dossier made up of wild accusations that Trump was some sort of Russian agent, the FBI was able to obtain a FISA warrant to reactivate its spying activities on the Trump Campaign, and that those spying activities continued after the election on the Trump Transition Team, which had its offices in Trump Tower.
  • On November 17, Admiral Rogers made what the fake news media called a “surprise visit” to Trump Tower and met with President-elect Trump and his team.  The very next day, on November 18, Trump announced he was moving his transition team’s headquarters to the Trump National Golf Club in Bedminister, New Jersey. This was most likely not a coincidence.
  • On January 20, 2017, Trump is sworn into office.  A few weeks later, Jeff Sessions is sworn in as Attorney General, and one of the first actions he takes is to order DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz to investigate the Cabal.  Rather than initiate an immediate purge of all the bad actors, the decision was apparently made to keep the enemies closer instead, and catch them in the act.
  • That year-long process has now almost reached its conclusion.  It is likely that the final report has gone to AG Sessions for review and approval, which is would explain why the process of rolling out the supporting documentation to relevant congressional committees has begun.
  • Thanks to the recent deal made between Chairman Devin Nunes and Deputy AG Rod Rosenstein, various participants in the Cabal will be testifying before the House Intel Committee and probably other committees in the coming weeks.  It is very unlikely we will see that final report until all that testimony has been completed, for obvious reasons.
  • But it’s coming soon, and when it does, Ben Rhodes may find himself left speechless once again, and Ms. Power won’t be hosting any celebrations.
Just another day in keeping your enemies close America.
That is all.

Thank Goodness President Trump Didn’t Use A Term That Starts With “Cluster…”

  • What is wrong with voters in Arizona?  In all seriousness, how does a single state end up electing the likes of John McCain and Jeff Flake to be its senators?  Of course, McCain won re-election yet again in 2016 just based on his name, but there is literally no excuse for Jeff Flake, who is blessedly reaching the end of his first – and only – senatorial term.
  • To Arizona citizens’ credit, Flake’s approval rating in his home state has hovered in the teens over the last year as he has become increasingly irrational, and that reality is what led him to decline to run for re-election.  But he gets to hang around for another year, and because he’s been a critic of President Donald Trump he is becoming a favorite go-to Republican for leftwing fake media outlets like ABC and MSNBC, where he made the rounds on Sunday morning.
  • First, Flake appeared on ABC’s “This Week” program, where he compared President Trump’s extremely accurate criticisms of America’s fake news media to tactics employed by Josef Stalin.  That statement alone will get him four more segments with George Stephanopoulos over the next few months.
  • This led next to an appearance on MSNBC’s “KasieDC”, a show hosted by an apparent 12 year-old fake journalist.  In this appearance, Flake demonstrated that he clearly suffers from delusions of grandeur, as he said he would not rule out making a run for the presidency in 2020.  This is known as the George Pataki Syndrome, and if you’re not quite sure who George Pataki is, that’s why it’s called that.
  • 43 years after Roger Staubach and Drew Pearson knocked the Minnesota Vikings out the NFL playoffs on the game’s final play with the legendary “Hail Mary Pass”, the Vikings got a “Hail Mary” of their own, as QB Case Keenum hit WR Stefon Diggs to knock the New Orleans Saints out of the playoffs and advance to the NFC Championship Game.  Fans of the Houston Texans should all remember that their Head Coach, Bill O’Brien, decided that Keenum just wasn’t good enough to play for his team.  The Texans sported a 4-12 record this season as Keenum was leading the Vikings to a division championship, and O’Brien was just awarded a 5-year contract extension.  Oof.
  • The Hawaii state employee who sent the state into chaos on Saturday by accidentally pushing a button that sent out a warning that a nuclear missile was incoming was “reassigned” by his bosses yesterday.  No word on what his new assignment might be, but lets hope they didn’t put him in a room with the Amber Alert button.
  • Meanwhile, California continues its devolution into America’s first third-world state.  The government announced on Friday that the Golden State now sports the highest poverty rate in the nation.  Yep, that’s higher than Mississippi, higher than Arkansas, higher than all 49 other states.  That Jerry Brown and his Marxist policies sure have done a world of good, huh?
  • Finally, as a public service for those who slept through it, here is a quick bullet-point review of how last week went:
    • In a private meeting in the Oval Office, President Trump allegedly uses the term “shithole countries” to describe countries that are, let’s face it, shitholes;
    • Democrat Dick Durbin leaks the President’s comment to the Washington Post;
    • Talking heads on CNN and MSNBC say “shithole” literally hundreds of times over the next 24 hours;
    • Social Justice Warriors who have spent their entire lives attempting to destroy every standard for decency in our society wail about the President having a foul mouth;
    • Democrat politicians who have for years told us that we can’t send illegal immigrants back to their home countries like Haiti and El Salvador because those countries are, let’s face it, “shitholes”, tweet out mocked-up images showing what beautiful places Haiti and El Salvador really are;
    • The terminally dishonest Sen. Durbin slams the President for using the term “chain migration”, claiming it is “racist”;
    • Hours later, video is revealed of Sen. Durbin calling for an end to “chain migration” in the well of the Senate in 2011;
    • A trans-gender traitor who was convicted of leaking classified information announced his/her run in the Maryland Democrat primary, challenging incumbent Ben Cardin for the U.S. Senate.  No one in the fake news media even blinks;
    • Some guy hits the wrong button and throws the entire state of Hawaii – which is not a “shithole” – into a 30-minute panic.  Liberals everywhere blame Donald Trump for an incident caused by a state agency because of course they do;
    • And it all ends with Jeff Flake, the least popular member of the U.S. Senate, telling a 12 year-old fake reporter on MSNBC that he might run for the presidency in 2020.
  • At the end of the week, we should all just breathe a sigh of relief that the President didn’t use a term that begins with the word “cluster.”  Whew.
Just another day in it was a real “shithole” of a week America.
That is all.

Trey Gowdy Frees Up Time To Focus On The Storm To Come

  • For about half an hour on Saturday, the people in Hawaii thought their state was under nuclear attack.  Isn’t that lovely.  What turned out to be a false message was sent out by the Hawaii Emergency Alert Agency (HEAA) because “someone pushed the wrong button,”, according to the Agency’s head, Vern Miyagi.  That’s a hell of a wrong button to push, Vern.
  • So for 30 minutes everyone in the Islands panicked, for good reason.  People were screaming, crying, shoving babies into storm drains, dogs and cats living together, mass hysteria!  And then ol’ Vern there figured out that one of his employees – probably some guy named Carl or Hank or Boomhauer, had just pushed the wrong magic button, so he pushed the other magic button and everyone went back to surfing and roasting pigs in the sand.
  • This really isn’t funny, though, is it?  Hey, maybe the folks at HEAA might want to think about putting a safety mechanism on that magic button, so that Carl or Hank or Boomhauer might have to actually think twice before it gets pushed.  You know, like we do on guns.  That’s the thing to do, tellya whut.
  • Trey Gowdy, Congressman from South Carolina, resigned from the House Ethics Committee on Saturday, and everyone in the fake news media typically missed the real story here.  Gowdy, who sits on four committees and chairs House Oversight and Government Reform, cited a “heavy work load” in making his announcement, and who can blame him?  But that’s not the real story here – or at least not the full one.
  • Think about which other committees Gowdy sits on addition to the two mentioned above:  Judiciary and Intelligence.  These are two of the six congressional committees that have spent the last year investigating the Democrat/media Russia Collusion fantasy.  Those investigations started with a focus on allegations that the Trump campaign and transition team “colluded” with some unidentified “Russians” to influence the 2016 election outcome, but in the process of doing that, realized that the only collusion with the Russians going on during that campaign was perpetrated by the Clinton Campaign and the DNC.
  • To understand what Gowdy is doing here in freeing up some of his time, first think about what happened at the end of last week.  That Friday, thanks to the tireless efforts of Chairman Devin Nunes, the members of the House Intelligence Committee gained access to all the FBI/DOJ documents related to the fake Trump Dossier.  As I mentioned on Wednesday, none of the information in those documents has leaked to CNN or anyone else in the fake news media, which means there is no good news in them for the Democrats.
  • Now, think ahead to what is supposed to happen at some point this week:  The long-anticipated special report from DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz should be finally released.  Horowitz has now spent a full year investigating the actions of FBI and DOJ officials related to Uranium One, the Clinton email scandal, the fake Trump Dossier, and Russia collusion allegations.
  • Also consider that just this past week, DOJ issued its first indictment related to Uranium One, an indictment that was of course ignored by the fake news media as it focused on presidential cursing.  Because that’s what the fake news media is there to do.
  • The IG has given the House Intel Committee a preview by releasing some of its documentation in recent weeks.  Also keep in mind the facts that, over the last three weeks, Attorney General Sessions announced the re-opening of DOJ investigations into Uranium One and the Clinton Crime Family Fake Foundation, and Nunes secured agreements from DOJ to force members of the Deep State Cabal to testify before that committee.  Those witnesses are scheduled to start appearing before the committee as soon as this week.
  • What all this means is there’s a storm coming to Washington, DC.  So if you think Rep. Gowdy resigned his seat on House Ethics just because he wants to spend more time with his family, think again.  The real story – which we never seem to get from the fake news media – is most likely that he wanted to free up more of his time so he can spend it where the action is about to be.
Just another day in The Storm is Coming to Washington America.
That is all.

Saturday Trump Roundup – All The #Winning That’s Fit To Print

 

  • Tired of all this Winning yet?  Part I – For the 90th time since Election Day 2016, the Dow Jones Industrial Index closed at an all-time record high on Friday, and all other stock indeces did the same.  Do you really care that much about the President’s potty mouth?
  • Tired of all this Winning yet?  Part II – Retailers recorded the strongest holiday season sales in a decade.  Sales for November and December were up 5.5% over 2016.  Somewhere, Barack Obama’s talking points monkeys are trying to find a way for their guy to take credit.
  • Tired of all this Winning yet?  Part III – The IRS reported late Thursday that fully 90% of workers in the U.S. will see more take-home money in their paychecks as soon as February.  This is what San Fran Nan Pelosi refers to as “Armageddon.”
  • Tired of all this Winning yet?  Part IV – President Trump’s medical examination on Friday went “exceptionally well,” per the doctor in charge.  This is not really any surprise, but it is just one more nail in the coffin of the “Trump isn’t fit to hold the office” nonsense being pushed by the fake news media and the Democrats.
  • Tired of all this Winning yet?  Part V – Records show that the Yale psychiatry professor who unethically “diagnosed” the President as being mentally unstable doesn’t even have a license to practice.   Perhaps someone should diagnose her.
  • Where in the world is Hillary Clinton? Day 12. – Yes, friends, we are 12 days into 2018, and have still not heard a single public utterance from the Pantsuit Princess.  Oh, her Twitter account did issue a statement on the President’s “shithole” remark, but the Coughing Crook probably has a staff of half a dozen flunkies to man her Twitter feed.
  • I’m talking about actual words – you know, talking.  In public.  Not a word from the Fainting Felon, a dozen days into the year?  This is not normal.  Not normal at all.  Come to think of it, we haven’t seen anything out of Slick Willie either.  All year long.  Something’s up.  Wonder what it might be?
  • Speaking of Slick Willie, Elon Musk obviously learned a thing or two from him about public prevarication.  The headline at the Daily Caller this morning reads “Elon Musk Admits He Attended Sex Party, But That None Of The Activities Happened While He Was There”.   Sounds just like “Bill Clinton Admits To Smoking Pot, But Swears He Did Not Inhale”.  Slick must have lent Elon his old talking points monkeys.
  • Speaking of the Pantsuit Princess, New York Magazine revealed tape of abusive MSNBC fake host Chris Matthews – who somehow still has a job despite being revealed as a textbook harasser – talking about giving the Coughing Crook a “Bill Cosby pill” prior to interviewing her during the 2016 campaign.  ummmmm…that’s just gross.
  • The leftist UK Guardian ran a story on Friday titled “Is deep-red Texas ready for a gay Latina Democrat? Lupe Valdez thinks so”.  Ummm, no.  Probably not.  But it’s not because Ms. Valdez – who has led an incredibly admirable life that includes serving the country in the U.S. Army Reserve, and at the Department of Homeland Security before becoming Police Chief for the city of Dallas – is gay or Latina.  It’s because she’s in favor of abortion on demand, and she’s a Democrat in a state that hasn’t elected a Democrat to a statewide office since 1994.  No amount of wishful thinking on the part of the Texas Democrat Party or the fake news media is going to change that.  You don’t have to believe me – just ask Wendy Davis.
  • Paul Mirengoff has an excellent piece this morning at Powerline titled “Playing the Race Card on Immigration.”  You can read it for yourself – I highly recommend it – but I especially liked the closing line:  “It is cynical for Democrats and anti-Trumpers to play the race card in what is a legitimate policy dispute about immigration.”  Well, sure it is.  But playing the race card is all they got.
  • Finally, for all the Bernie Sanders fans out there, Daily Wire has a great piece this morning detailing the inevitable end game of Sanders’ socialist/communist policies that is playing itself out right now in Venezuela.  The headline reads “SOCIALIST PARADISE: Several Dead, 15 Injured In Fight For Food In Venezuela”.  Read the whole thing.  Seriously, just read it – it’ll do you good.  You might even learn something.
Just another day in Donald Trump just keeps Winning America.
That is all.

America Enters Its First “Shithole Countries” News Cycle

[Warning:  This is the first PG-13 version of Today’s Campaign Update.  Today’s Campaign Update will return to its traditional PG format tomorrow.]

  • Me and Rush, tight as ticks. – I caught Rush Limbaugh’s opening segment the last two days, and I’m beginning to think he’s reading my Daily Campaign Updates during his daily show prep. If you listen to the first 8 minutes of his show the last two days and compare that to what I wrote, there’s a lot of not just the same points, but a lot of exact wording being used.  I’m cool with that, Rush.  But give me a shout out sometime, ok?  Thanks.
  • You just cannot make this stuff up. – USA Today reported on Thursday that many radical “women’s” advocates are ditching their pink pussyhats.  Why?  Oh, you’ll never guess why.  Go ahead, guess.  Nope, try again.  Nope.  Ok, here’s the answer:  They’re ditching their pussy hats because, and I’m quoting here, “the pink pussyhat excludes and is offensive to transgender women and gender non-binary people who don’t have typical female genitalia and to women of color because their genitals are more likely to be brown than pink.”  There are a million things – literally – I could say about this, but in the interest of decorum, I will just leave it at that.
  • Terminally un-funny comic and notorious drunk Chelsea Handler demonstrated yet again what a perfect spokeswoman she is for the progressive left on Wednesday by accusing – in the most graphic language possible – U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham of being a closeted homosexual on her Twitter account.  Senator Graham, a lifelong bachelor, has steadfastly denied this claim repeatedly during his political career.  Remember when  progressives were the tolerant ones?  Or at least put up the pretense of being so?  Yeah, good times…
  • Ok, so, we are well in to the “shithole countries” news cycle, in which everyone in the fake news media goes berserk over a comment made in what was supposed to be a closed meeting by the President of the United States.  I won’t defend that language, which is completely inappropriate for any U.S. president to use about other countries.  Nor will I defend the President’s timing, which steps all over his message on immigration and destroyed the narrative of what was otherwise an extremely positive day for his immigration policies.  But I will defend the sentiment:  We simply need a smarter immigration policy for our country.
  • We should be – as our country has done throughout most of its history – focused on bringing in people who can actually contribute to our society in meaningful ways, and who wish to assimilate into our society.  We have spent the last 50 years under an immigration policy designed to favor immigrants who have no interest in assimilating into U.S. society, simply because such immigrants are more likely to vote Democrat.  The Democrat Party wants a Balkanized country, a divided America, because a divided country favors its electoral politics.  Simple as that.
  • But even Democrats weren’t always as interested in dividing America along racial and ethnic lines.  In pushing his 1965 immigration bill, Ted Kennedy said , “[the bill] will not inundate America with immigrants from any one country or area, or the most populated and deprived nations of Africa and Asia.”  That’s 52 years ago, of course, but YouTube is full of videos of Democrat luminaries like Chuck Schumer, the Pantsuit Princess and Harry Reid expounding on the need to protect our borders, send “illegal aliens” (yes, as recently as 9 years ago, Schumer used that term in the well of the Senate) back to their home countries, and promote policies that encourage new legal immigrants to learn English and assimilate into American society.  Yeah, good times…good times…
  • All the “shithole countries” talk aside, all of you Trump supporters who spend too much time listening to professional rabble rousers like Ann Coulter and #nevertrumpists who were warning you that the President was about to sell the country out by agreeing to amnesty with no border protections should have been breathing sighs of relief at day’s end on Thursday.  President Trump’s frustrated remark came in a meeting with several pro-amnesty senators who believed they had just the deal for him:  a deal that would provide the DREAMers a 10-15 year path to citizenship, modify (but not eliminate) chain migration, provide a down payment on border security measures without full funding, and modify (but not eliminate) the immigration lottery system, the continuation of which was what led to Mr. Trump becoming so irritated.
  • That was a classic Washington DC compromise deal, a conglomeration of counterproductive half-measures in which everyone involved would get part, but not all of what they wanted, and could have all declared “victory”.  President Trump turned it down flat, because it was a lousy deal for the country, and because it would have violated his campaign promises on immigration.  Make no mistake:  there is a deal to be made here, and it is obvious.  That deal is that the DREAMers get immediate legal status with a path to citizenship; the border wall/enhanced security gets fully funded; chain migration ends; and the immigration lottery goes away over time.  That’s the deal the President will accept, and it is completely consistent with his campaign promises.
  • Honestly, folks, how many of those campaign promises must this man keep to you before you all start showing a little faith in him?

Just another day in “shithole countries” America.

That is all.

The World Keeps Closing in on the Deep State Cabal

  • Oprah’s going to regret ever having given that speech. – Harvey Weinstein’s best pal for 20 years now finds herself getting just a small taste of what her carefully-constructed facade will be subjected to if she really does attempt to mount a run for the presidency.  She has now been irrevocably exposed as one of Weinstein’s closest confidants over the last two decades, her history of pushing conspiracies on her TV show is being revisited, her promotion of a facial cream made partially from babies’ foreskins is being revisited, and even her oft-told back story of having grown up in abject squalor is being challenged by people who knew her during her childhood.
  • Even the singer Seal lashed out at her on Wednesday, pointing out the likelihood that she knew about Weinstein’s serial abuse of women for years and did nothing about it, saying she’s been “part of the problem for years”.  This is just a small, small taste of what’s to come, Oprah.  It’s not something that giving away gift bags or even cars to everybody will stop.  You sure you want to be president?
  • Speaking of Harvey Weinstein, the monster himself got punched out Tuesday night by a fellow diner at a swanky joint in Scottsdale, AZ.  Nobody on the face of the earth felt bad for him, except maybe Oprah and Meryl Streep.
  • Sen. Dianne “Sneaky” Feinstein, now concerned that she may have violated laws by releasing the transcript of closed testimony by Fusion GPS Founder Glenn Simpson, is now blaming a “bad cold” for slowing her already puny mental faculties as the reason she made that decision.  That hilariously lame and obviously false rationalization comes after she let slip in an answer to a reporter that she “was pressured” by some unnamed entity to make the unilateral decision to put the transcript out in public over the wishes of Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley.  Feinstein later said she “misspoke” when she said that, but of course, Democrats always “misspeak” whenever the truth accidentally escapes their lips.
  • The most likely truth here, of course, is that Sen. Feinstein released Simpson’s testimony in order to provide a head’s up to the various FBI and DOJ participants in the Deep State cabal, like Peter Strzok, Bruce Ohr, Lisa Page, Bill Priestap, James Baker, Andrew McCabe and others who will be offering testimony before various congressional committees in the coming days.  Given that the fake Trump Dossier compiled by Fusion GPS will be a topic of questioning in these hearings, the Democrats obviously want all these skunks and snakes to be able to properly get their stories straight.  Sneaky Dianne’s act of blatant sedition here is just one more reason why our Sleepy Attorney General, Jeff Sessions, needs to get off his marijuana-obsessed butt and appoint another special counsel to investigate the Cabal’s activities.
  • As Fox News reported on Tuesday, the members of the House Intelligence Committee got their long-sought access to all FBI/DOJ documents related to their use of the Trump Dossier.  Last Friday, every committee member was allowed to view the documents and take notes, which is standard procedure with highly classified information such as this.  Given that this included Democrat Rep. Adam Schiff, and none of the information contained in those documents has been leaked to CNN as we sit here six days later, we can assume the documents do not contain good news for the Democrats.  Rep. Schiff generally works on a much quicker time frame than this.
  • Speaking of collusion with the Russians, where in the world is Hillary Clinton?  Here we are, 11 days into the new year, and we have yet to hear a single public utterance from the Pantsuit Princess.  Indeed, if you do a Google news search on her name, the only stories you get back about her, other than casual mentions by third parties, are reports on the fire that broke out at her home in Chappaqua, New York on Jan. 3, and the fact that the Justice Department has opened an investigation into the Uranium One scandal, and re-opened its investigation into the Clinton Crime Family Fake Foundation.
  • It has been literally decades since the Fainting Felon went 11 days without making a public appearance.  With the DOJ Inspector General’s office expected to issue its report on its internal investigation as soon as next week, perhaps we should focus future Google searches on sightings of the Coughing Crook and her hubby Bill “vacationing” in non-extradition countries.
  • But hey, maybe she’s just been suffering from a “bad cold,” too.  It seems to be going around in Democrat circles these days.  That tends to happen when the world starts finally closing in around you.

Just another day in it’s a nasty cold season for Democrats America.

That is all.

Trump’s “DACA” Meeting: Another Mission Accomplished

  • In my new year’s predictions piece (2018 Will Be A Wild and Crazy Year in Trump’s America) I predicted that “The crisis with North Korea will be resolved without a shot being fired.”  In case you hadn’t noticed – because the fake news media is spending as little time covering it as possible – a few  days after that piece was published, the Crazy Little Fat Guy called his counterpart in South Korea to request that the two countries engage in bi-lateral negotiations.  Those talks commenced on Monday, and have already begun to bear fruit.  This never happened while Barack Obama was appeasing the Crazy Little Fat Guy.  Funny how it does happen, now that the appeasement has ended.
  • Speaking of talks between hostile nations, President Donald Trump (I still never tired of typing those three words) hosted a room full of congressional Republican and Democrat leaders at the White House to talk immigration on Tuesday.  Normally, the fake journalists who represent the fake news media outlets are invited to come in for the first 5 minutes of such meetings, so they can take pictures and ask stupid, insulting questions.  That’s how all prior presidents have done it, and it’s the routine to which the fake journalists have become accustomed.
  • But, of course, Donald Trump does not do “routine,” a reality that the fake journalists still have not figured out.  So it came as a yuuuge surprise to the fake reporters – and an even bigger shock to the members of congress who hate having to speak on the record without their script in front of them –  when the President instructed the leering press to just stick around and film the whole thing.  And for the next 50 minutes or so, President Trump turned the meeting into the latest episode of The Apprentice, with Trump holding forth from the center of the table, asking piercing questions, telling everyone why they’re wrong about specific things, and completely dominating the discussion.  The only shame was that he couldn’t point to Sen. Dianne Feinstein and say, “you’re fired.”
  • It all came as such a shock to the fake news media system that even CNN saw its fake hosts praising the President in real time, before they had a chance to get with their Democrat benefactors and develop negative talking points about it.  The vacuous Wolf Blitzer found himself telling CNN’s little toady White House fake reporter Jim Acosta that he had to give Trump “a lot of credit” for allowing press cameras to cover a “really remarkable meeting.”  Blitzer later opened a segment with White House Director of Legislative Affairs Marc Short by saying, “Thank you for allowing that meeting today to be open to our TV cameras.  I think it was very productive, very important.”
  • This will all change this morning, now that the Democrats and fake media have had a chance to get into their own conference room and hammer out a negative narrative for the President’s performance, but the Trump goal was achieved, and it has nothing to do  with immigration.
  • Wait, what?  Yes, that meeting yesterday was not in any way about solving the nation’s immigration problems.  The President is not naive – he is keenly aware that these particular Republicans and these particular Democrats are never, never, ever going to come to any agreement over an approach to the immigration problems facing this country.  Which is why he knew he could sit there and tell them “I’ll sign whatever you bring me” in terms of a comprehensive immigration bill without worrying about ever having to actually do such a thing.
  • This is especially true with Trump’s one provision that any agreement on DACA or a path to citizenship for illegal immigrants already in the country must include the building of a border wall, and the elimination of chain migration.  He made that crystal clear at the beginning of the meeting, and reiterated it again with tweets afterwards.  Those are deal killers for Democrats, whose one and only interest in all of this is maximizing illegal immigration with the goal of ultimately turning them all into Democrat voters.
  • Thus, Donald Trump knew he could sit in that meeting a let them all bicker with one another without ever having to worry about actually seeing a comprehensive immigration bill come to his desk.  Which means that all the hysteria from Ann Coulter and the rest of the anti-immigration right we saw last night and will see again today about the President somehow going back on his campaign promises is meaningless blather from people who also still do not understand how Donald Trump operates.
  • So, then, what was the meeting all about?  Well, it was about demonstrating clearly, without any question at all, that Donald Trump is in complete control of his mental faculties, does not have dementia, and is clearly capable of carrying out the duties of being President of the United States.  It was about conclusively and effectively refuting these treasonous allegations that have been made ad nauseum by Democrats and in the fake news media since the publication of Michael Wolff’s gossip novel.   After all, if the guy who was clearly in complete control of that meeting is mentally deficient, what does that make all the politicians in the room who were clearly subservient to him?
  • That, my friends, is the one and only thing that meeting yesterday was about, at least from Donald Trump’s perspective.
  • Mission accomplished.

Just another day in Donald Trump is in control America.

That is all.

Trump Is Taking The Regulatory Shackles Off Oil Drillers. Can The Industry Avoid Messing It Up?

Back in the late 1980s and early 1990s, pickup trucks all over the U.S. oil patch could be seen sporting a bumper sticker that read “Lord, please just give me one more oil boom and I promise not to mess it up.”

Fast forward to 2017 and the first few days of 2018, and the oil and gas industry is being handed the first half of that plea by the Trump Administration in the form of radical shifts from the Obama-era energy and environmental policies of the previous 8 years.  For its own sake, those in the U.S. oil and gas industry today had better take the promise made in that bumper sticker slogan very seriously.  Because if the industry messes this opportunity up, there will be hell to pay the next time the voters decide to put a Democrat in the White House, an inevitability that could come about as soon as 2020.

In just the last week, the Department of the Interior has presented the industry with three major policy reversals that will make it easier and more efficient to conduct drilling and exploration activities on federal lands and in federal waters, but also present major opportunities for the industry to mess things up:

  • On December 29, DOI announced the formal rescission of the Bureau of Land Management’s (BLM) so-called “Fracking Rule,” on the grounds that it was unnecessary and largely duplicative of state regulations.  While that has the advantage of being true, it also means that the industry must take great care in its hydraulic fracturing operations on federal lands in the coming years, as any incident is now bound to attract major media scrutiny, and you can be sure that the industry’s opponents will be keeping a running tab in anticipation of coming back into power in the next Democratic presidency;
  • Also on December 29, DOI’s Bureau of Safety and Environmental Enforcement (BSEE) announced it is embarking on a major overhaul of a pair of safety regulations that the Obama Administration put into effect following the 2010 Deepwater Horizon blowout in the Gulf of Mexico.  While the regulations were in some respects unnecessarily onerous and unworkable, revising them will inevitably place the offshore industry under even more media and public scrutiny, and any incidents that result in spills will now inevitably be blamed on whatever changes are made.  Another very double-edged sword that elevates the need for offshore operators to beef up their own safety processes;
  • And now today, January 4, DOI Secretary Ryan Zinke announced the Administration will pursue a dramatic expansion of the Obama Administration’s 2016 5-year plan for development in the federal OCS.  As announced earlier today, the proposed new 5-year plan would open up more than 90% of the OCS to oil and gas leasing, including vast areas along the Atlantic and Pacific Coasts, the Eastern Gulf of Mexico and off the North Slope of Alaska that have long been off-limits.  Again, a very bold plan that could result in huge increases in investment and production of oil and natural gas here in the U.S., but also an opportunity that the industry must take great care to not “mess up.”

Amid Deep Freeze, New Englanders Can ‘Thank’ N.Y. Gov. Cuomo For Their High Energy Bills

As temperatures dropped well below freezing in the Northeast U.S. around Christmas, Bloomberg reported that in New England, natural gas spot prices rose more than threefold to the highest in over three years and “turned the region into the world’s priciest market,” with gas for next-day delivery on Enbridge’s Algonquin system settling at $35.35 per million British thermal units.

A few days later, the spot prices in New England had fallen back to $19.75, as reported by MassLive.

When one considers that the NYMEX price for natural gas on that day was sitting at a few cents above $3/mmbtu, that’s some pretty pricey gas that New Englanders were paying for. Back in the “old days,”  i.e., before the advent of the production of natural gas from shale formations, a winter event like this, combined with a storage level that is well within the 5-year range, would have sent that NYMEX price up dramatically, where it would have lingered until things warmed up. But in today’s world, that price represented a rise of barely 10%.

So what, you might ask, is going on in New England?  As MassLive reported, the biggest reason for what will be a short-term blowout in natural gas prices for power providers is a lack of pipeline capacity.

When Leftists Become Self-Aware, We’ll Be All Out of Leftists

  • Daily Wire reports that a young lady named Maria Ana Carrola Flores, a student at UC San Diego, is suing the school for allowing her to do stupid things.  No, I didn’t make that up.  It seems Ms. Flores participated in an anti-Trump rally the day after Election Day 2016 (because she and her fellow snowflake students didn’t get their way and mommy wasn’t around for them to whine to), and was hit by a car when several of them tried to block a nearby freeway.  We should all hope she actually wins this lawsuit.
  • No, really, stay with me here.  See, the grounds for Ms. Flores’ lawsuit are that the school knew about the protest, approved of it, and did not provide proper security to the situation, or appropriate instructions to the functional moron students that the school has been brainwashing.  Seems no one in a position of authority told these losers in life that it’s sort of dangerous to go up on the freeway and block traffic.
  • So, why do we hope Ms. Flores prevails?  Because of that first part – the school knew about this protest and supported it.  If a school is going to know about and support stupid protest actions like this by its students, then it needs to be liable for their consequences.  A big payout might help to bring a real sense of self-awareness to the school’s leadership.  So, you go, you little dimwitted snowflake, you.
  • Speaking of lack of self-awareness, Oprah Winfrey, of whom there are literally hundreds of photos paling around with Harvey Weinstein floating around the Internet, has now become the face of the dying #Metoo movement against sexual assault.  So much so, that all the fake sympathizers against Hollywood’s systematic abuse of women want her to run for president in 2020.  Ms. Winfrey’s stirring speech at Sunday’s Golden Globe Awards ceremony took TinselTown’s slow learners by storm, but now she must find a way to deal with the reality that she undoubtedly knew what Harvey was up to all these years, during which she was one of his closest buddies.
  • Winfrey claims to be “considering” actually making a presidential run, but that bold statement may be more due to a typical leftist lack of self-awareness than anything else.  The facade of politics is a completely different false reality than the facade of Hollywood that Oprah has always been a part of. You have to wonder how many days of her reputation being dragged through the lens of her reality she will really be willing to endure.  Breathless liberals spent all day Monday saying that “if Trump did it, Oprah can do it,” but Trump doesn’t give a damn what the media and his opponents say about him.  Oprah cares about that, a really, really lot.
  • Personally, I hope she does run, just so we can all see the looks on the faces of Senators Fauxcahontas, Kamala Harris, Bernie Sanders and former VP Joe Biden the first time they have to face her on a debate stage.  That would be priceless.  And let’s face it, the Democrats are going to run some leftist hypocrite for the presidency in 2020;  there is no more perfect face for the Democrat Party than a leftist hypocrite who was best pals with the monster Harvey Weinstein for going on 20 years.
  • The NAACP, apparently upset that Donald Trump’s unleashing of the U.S. economy has resulted in the lowest Black unemployment rate in history, issued a statement on Monday urging all African-Americans attending Monday night’s College Football National Championship Game to protest the attendance of President Donald Trump (I never tire of typing those three words) by waving white towels at him.  Apparently, no one told the folks at the NAACP that waving a white towel or flag is the traditional sign of surrender.  In any event, no white towels could be seen as the President made his way onto the field for the pre-game ceremonies.  Probably because any African Americans who could afford to attend that game have jobs, no thanks to anyone at the NAACP.
  • The President in fact received a rousing standing ovation as he entered Atlanta’s Mercedes Benz Stadium prior to the game.  Leftists everywhere today will condemn Mr. Trump for failing to kneel as the National Anthem was played, as has become the left’s new tradition.  CNN is no doubt searching for a cardiologist who will claim that Trump’s holding his hand over his heart is a sure sign of impending heart failure, and thus, the 25th Amendment must be invoked to save the country, or something.  You probably think that’s ridiculous, but this is CNN we’re talking about here.  It would be far from the most absurd thing they’ve put on the air about Donald Trump.  Amirite?
  • When you think about it, it’s really kind of extraordinary that the NCAA and ESPN folks approved a pre-game role for President Trump that was such an obvious, direct shot at the National Football League and its ongoing player protests of the National Anthem.  No idea who made that call, but whomever it is, you da man!
  • When the people at ESPN asked President Trump to visit the broadcast booth for an interview with the game announcers, the President declined.  Because, why would President Trump to grant an interview with the “sports” network whose on-air personalities have been bashing him with impunity for the last two years?  ESPN displayed an extraordinary lack of self-awareness for even asking, but then, that’s what progressive idiots do.

Just another day in unself-aware leftists America.

Today’s Liberal/Media Trump Narrative Taken To Its Logical Conclusion

Today’s Campaign Update – Special Liberal/Media Narrative Edition

Today’s new Liberal/Media Trump narrative: he doesn’t spend enough time working!!!!! We’re all gonna die!!!!!!!

Seriously, thanks to a special report published this morning by the reliably liberal Axios – based of course solely on unidentified “officials” and “aides” – social media is all a-twitter (and I guess all a-Facebook) with this new fantasy-based national emergency.

Ok, so lets think this through using liberal “logic”, such as it is:

– Liberals hate Trump with a passion – check!

– Liberals believe Trump is evil – check!

– Liberals believe Trump is suffering from dementia – check!

– Liberals thus believe that every action Trump takes is the act of an evil, demented person – check!

– Liberals want Trump removed from office under the 25th amendment precisely because he is an evil demented person whose every action is demented and evil – check!

Are you with me so far? Just checking, because it’s fixing to get very liberal weird here…

– Thus, liberals want us to believe that they think it is literally a national emergency that Trump, who they tell us must be removed from office under the 25th amendment because he is an evil demented person whose every action is demented and evil, IS NOT SPENDING ENOUGH TIME WORKING AND THUS TAKING ACTION!

Truly, if liberals and fake journalists didn’t exist, we’d have to make them up.  But I swear I don’t make this stuff up.

And that, friends, is today’s new Liberal/Media Trump narrative taken to its logical conclusion.

That is all.

Donald Trump Persists

  • The Golden Globe Awards were held last night, and Oprah was apparently elected president.  At least, that’s what NBC’s official Twitter feed appeared to indicate early in the evening.  So it must be official, or something.
  • I didn’t watch the Golden Globes, which I know comes as a gigantic shock to all of you, but I do watch Twitter, and on that platform I see that Oprah told the assembled Hollywood phonies that “There is nothing more important than speaking your truth.”  Note to President Oprah:  There is no such thing as “your” truth.  There is truth, and there is not truth.  There is nothing in between.  Giving that kind of advice to a bunch of mental midgets who already live in a completely faked-up world is like feeding crack to a street addict.  Shame on you.
  • In keeping with the evening’s “we’re all gonna wear black to show solidarity with somebody or something…hey, are you gonna keep your gift bag?  Can I have it?” theme, Actress Connie Britton wore a black skirt along with a cotton t-shirt that said “Poverty is Sexist.”  It would have been more accurate had it said, “I am really vapid and sort of stupid.”
  • Speaking of people living in a fantasy world, noted fiction writer Michael Wolff, who is in the running with Scut Farkus for the Greenest Teeth on the Planet award (if only he had yellow eyes, too), is experiencing a moment of gigantic hubris, which was predictable given all the free media he’s had over the last week.  In an interview with the BBC, Wolff told the fake interviewer that his book “will finally end this presidency once and for all.”  This is me, sighing heavily:  *sigh*.
  • In other words, Wolff believes his book – which he himself admits is at best a highly fictionalized portrayal of reality – is the “beginning of the end for Donald Trump.”  One can only wonder if this turd of a human being has any idea how many times over the last 2 years and 8 months the American public has heard those words uttered by some leftwing fool, pontificating pundit or fake conservative #neverTrump nitwit.  That phrase is without any doubt the most frequently-uttered empty promise in recent history, on a par with “if you like your plan, you can keep your plan,” or “I turned over all the emails I was required to turn over,” or “I did not have sex with that woman.”
  • It began even before Donald Trump announced his candidacy.  As he and Melania came down that escalator in the lobby of Trump Tower to make the announcement, talking heads on Fox and CNN were already predicting the end to his presidential run.
  • When his unorthodox performance in the first primary debate with 11 of his 16 GOP opponents caused such an uproar, Charles Krauthammer and many other makers of the DC conventional wisdom declared with absolute certainty that it was “the beginning of the end for Donald Trump.”  And yet he persisted.
  • Megyn Kelly’s opening the second primary debate with her very aggressive questioning about his history with women was “the beginning of the end for Donald Trump.”  And yet he carried on.
  • Trump’s loss to Ted Cruz in the Iowa Caucuses was declared by everyone on every cable and network news program to be “the beginning of the end for Donald Trump.”  A few days later, he won New Hampshire in a landslide.
  • His loss to Cruz in the Wisconsin primary was supposed to be “the beginning of the end for Donald Trump.”  Trump then went out and swept the next 16 consecutive primary races and easily secured the nomination.
  • The release of the Billy Bush tape was going to be “the beginning of the end for Donald Trump,” yet he somehow soldiered on.
  • His poor performance in the first debate with Hillary Clinton was declared with great finality by everyone in the fake news media to be “the beginning of the end for Donald Trump.”  But he won the next two debates and ultimately won the election.
  • The firing of corrupt FBI Director James Comey was going to be “the beginning of the end for Donald Trump,” but still, Trump persisted.
  • The appointment of Robert Mueller as Special Counsel to investigate allegations of collusion with Russia was certainly going to be “the beginning of the end for Donald Trump,” yet 10 months later there is no evidence of any such collusion, and Mueller is off casting about for other angles of investigation.
  • The indictments of Paul Manafort and George Papadopoulos were declared to be “the beginning of the end for Donald Trump.”  But there he still sits in the White House.
  • We’ve seen, at a minimum, two dozen stories published over the last year by the NYTimes or the WaPo, based on nothing but unidentified sources, all of which have been declared by all the smart people in Washington to be “the beginning of the end for Donald Trump.”
  • Yet, Donald Trump remains, tweeting early in the morning to set the fake news media off on its daily rabbit trails of hysteria and false reporting, then spending the remainder of each day systematically erasing the horrific, anti-American legacy of Barack Obama.
  • If the treasury had collected a dollar from every wise man, fake reporter or fake talking head in Washington every time they had declared “the beginning of the end for Donald Trump” over the last 32 months, we’d be halfway to retiring the national debt.

Just another day in Donald Trump Persists America.

O.J. and Jon Snow, Disney and Roseanne: This Week’s Blizzard of Culture Rot

  • Tired of all this Winning yet?  Part I – Remember how, according to all your liberal friends, President Donald Trump (I never tire of typing those three words) is supposed to be a racist?  Yeah, that cat don’t flush.  The African American unemployment rate dropped to 6.8% in December, its lowest recording since records began being kept in 1972.  Hispanic unemployment was 4.9%, a near-all-time record.  Both measures were well below levels during the Obama years.
  • Tired of all this Winning yet?  Part II – Newsbusters has a great list this morning of 10 leftist propaganda films that flopped bigly at the box office in 2017.
  • Tired of all this Winning yet?  Part III – The Washington Times has a nice piece on all the global warming scam films that also tanked hugely at the box office last year.  Truly, it was a terrible year for Hollywood in general, but it was an absolutely awful year to preach leftwing dogma to the American public.
  • Speaking of leftist culture rot, the young grandson in the re-boot of the sitcom Roseanne dresses like a girl.  Well, of course he does.  The leftist fake journalists at Entertainment Weekly call the character “one of the more enlightened updates” to the show.  Well, of course they do.  Get ready to see the re-boot of Roseanne on lists of 10 leftwing TV shows that bombed during 2018.
  • And about that leftist culture rot, the rotten bosses at Disney are now under fire for hiring white actors to fill minor crowd scene roles in their filming of the Will Smith-starring live action version of Aladdin.  It seems that, rather than take the time to try to find actual Asian actors to fill the roles, Disney’s producers chose to just spray tan a bunch of white people instead.  Per the Times of London, “Extra Kaushal Odedra, 32, was a stand in for a lead star in the film and told the Times he saw up 20 ‘very fair skinned’ actors waiting to have their skin darkened in make up tents.  He also claimed Caucasian extras were even being browned up for crowd shots.  ‘Disney are sending out a message that your skin colour, your identity, your life experiences amount to nothing that can be powered on and washed off’.”  Oh, the humanity.
  • OJ Simpson, who swore on his release from prison that he just wanted to live a quiet and peaceful life away from the limelight, has announced plans to sue the Cosmopolitan hotel/casino in Las Vegas for at least $100 million.  The reason?  The Cosmopolitan recently permanently banned Simpson from the premises for being drunk and disruptive.  That’s the Simpson idea of a “quiet and peaceful” life.
  • Hey, if Jon Snow did it, why can’t OJ? – Ok, so, actor Kit Harrington, a Hollywood male rarity who has not been accused of sexually abusing anyone yet, was tossed out of a New York City bar called Barfly Friday for being “drunk and disorderly.”  No word if he plans to sue for $100 million, but hey, it’s all the rage these days.
  • But if we did that you’d have to hide your stupidity. – A professor of political science at Diablo Valley College, one Albert Ponce, was caught on tape advocating the violent overthrow of U.S. democracy by one of his students.  In truth, this is really nothing new on college campuses.  I personally had a history teacher in the late ’70s who began his lecture on the first day of class by telling his students that “There are two great political figures in modern times:  Fidel Castro and Jimmy Carter.”  Things went downhill from there that semester.
  • Stuff like this is why Trump got elected. – The Washington Free Beacon is reporting that $50,000 of your federal taxes are going to pay for a program whose goal is to get more women blogging…in India.  I swear I don’t make this stuff up.  Who could?
  • While all of this stuff was going on, the President is spending the weekend in Camp David with a group of congressional leaders and his “inner circle” of advisors and cabinet members.  Very tellingly, our sleepy, pot-obsessed Attorney General Jeff Sessions was not among them.  #Priorities, Jeff.  Think about them.

Just another day in Donald Trump’s America.

That is all.

Robert Mueller Has a Big Bag of Nothing and the Democrats All Know It

  • Tired of all this Winning yet?  Part I – The federal government shrank by 16,000 jobs during 2017, while the nation’s manufacturing sector added 196,000 jobs.  That, friends, is winning, bigly.
  • Tired of all this Winning yet?  Part II – Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley and fellow member Lindsey Graham referred the infamous Christopher Steele, author of the fake anti-Trump dossier to the FBI and DOJ for criminal investigation.  This is the first criminal referral made by any of the various congressional committees that have spent the last year investigating allegations of “Russia Collusion” invented by the fake news media and the Democrats.
  • Tired of all this Winning yet?  Part III – Hundreds of leftwingers – including various people who call themselves “journalists” – fell for a hoax about President Donald Trump spending 17 hours a day watching the “Gorilla Channel.”  After a twitter user tweeted out a mocked-up passage from Michael Wolff’s book making this bizarre claim, leftwingers re-tweeted it all over the Internet in the belief that the story was real.  Within minutes, the Gorilla Channel was trending on Twitter, and cable companies all over America were fielding calls from demented leftists asking how they can subscribe to the Gorilla Channel.  Of course, there is no such thing as the Gorilla Channel.  But I sure wish there was.  Sounds fascinating.
  • The New York Times reported on Friday that Special Counsel Robert Mueller has given up on finding any actual collusion with Russia – the ostensible reason for his appointment in the first place – and is now focusing on trying to prove up an obstruction of justice case against President Trump.  So this paragon of virtue has shifted from one fool’s errand to another.
  • If the NYTimes report is true – always a dangerous assumption, given that the fake newspaper’s record for accurate reporting is roughly equal to that of Michael Wolff, a self-admitted fabulist – Mueller is trying to dummy up a case that would contend that Trump’s efforts to convince Jeff Sessions not to recuse himself somehow amounts to obstruction of justice.  This is tomfoolery bordering on rank nitwittery.  Whether or not Sessions should recuse himself was for days the subject of intense debate, with experts weighing in on both sides of the argument.  Mueller apparently wants us to believe that the President obstructed justice because he expressed his own opinion in the matter.  Our tax dollars should not be paying for such nonsense.
  • The other angle the Times claims Mueller is pursuing is that the President tasked his White House counsel to try to dig up dirt on James Comey, who he already knew was a bad actor and likely felon.  This is obstruction of justice?  Really?  Please.  Hasn’t Bob Mueller got better things to do with his life, like torturing lizards or hunting for Bigfoot?
  • Here’s how you know Mueller has a big bag of nothing where Trump is concerned, and every leftist fake reporter in the fake media and every Democrat member of congress knows it:  None of them are talking about things like Russia Collusion or obstruction of justice anymore.  They’ve all given up on those fake narratives and are now focused on the fake narrative that the President is somehow mentally unfit for the job.
  • President Trump is completely and hilariously aware of this, and addressed it this morning with a series of tweets:
    • “Now that Russian collusion, after one year of intense study, has proven to be a total hoax on the American public, the Democrats and their lapdogs, the Fake News Mainstream Media, are taking out the old Ronald Reagan playbook and screaming mental stability and intelligence…..
    • ….Actually, throughout my life, my two greatest assets have been mental stability and being, like, really smart. Crooked Hillary Clinton also played these cards very hard and, as everyone knows, went down in flames. I went from VERY successful businessman, to top T.V. Star…..
    • ….to President of the United States (on my first try). I think that would qualify as not smart, but genius….and a very stable genius at that!”
  • Genius indeed.  And Winning.  Lots and lots of unmitigated Winning.

Just another day in Sooooooo.  Much.  Winning.  America.

That is all.
