Conservatives Must Focus on Defeating The Alinsky Democrats

Today’s Campaign Update 

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

  • It is a sad truth of our current societal situation that those on the left wing of the political spectrum no longer possess the ability to argue political issues based on anything resembling facts or logic.  I used to say that they no longer desire to do so, but it has become abundantly clear over the last decade that progressives simply no longer have the ability.
  • The left abandoned any effort to really debate issues at the outset of the Bill Clinton presidency, as the Clintons brought their Saul Alinsky rules for radicals tactics to the White House.  Those rules consist of a dozen tactics that focus away from working cooperatively with the opposition to reach reasonable compromises on issues, and focus instead on a mounting a constant drumbeat of demonization of the opposition.  What was at first a conscious, intentional decision by those on the left to abandon facts and logic has, after 25 years, become a complete loss of the skill.

  • Rule 12 reads “Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it.”  This is the tactic the Democrats and the fake news media have used against President Trump since Hillary Clinton and her campaign people invented the “Russia Collusion” fantasy play two days after last November’s election.  That fantasy, and James Comey’s collusion with it, got them a Special Counel investigation, and will probably nab them a few victims like Paul Manafort for Robert Mueller and his team of Clinton/Obama shills to prosecute.  That tactic initially conformed to Alinsky Rule #6, “A good tactic is one your people enjoy.”
  • But it has now worn thin with the public, as the months and months of investigations turn up no real evidence that Donald Trump and his people colluded with the Russians in any way.  As a result, it has run up onto the shoals of Alinsky Rule 7, “A tactic that drags on too long becomes a drag.”  This is why the Democrat/fake media axis of disinformation had to move onto another tactic for freezing and polarizing the President.
  • So, along came Charlottesville.  We now know that the clown who organized the “Unite the Right” white supremacist rally there and got it permitted, Jason Kessler, is a leftist radical who was also an organizer of the George Soros-funded Occupy Wall Street movement.  Probably not coincidentally, it also appears that he is a former producer at …wait for it…CNN!  Given Kessler’s true identity, it is a safe bet that other leftwing radicals participated in that “Unite the Right” rally in order to create negative footage for CNN and other fake news outlets to air.  Classic Alinsky tactics.
  • To ensure maximum negative footage from Charlottesville, leftwingers funded by Soros arranged to bus in hundreds of Antifa and Black Lives Matter thugs to stage an un-permitted protest and turn the whole thing into a riot.  We now know that the police were told to stand down by the city’s leftist radical mayor to ensure maximum carnage took place, and then reliable Clinton toady Terry McAuliffe, the governor of Virginia, gave a completely false and inflammatory speech once the damage was all done.
  • At that point, it did not matter what President Trump said in the wake of the tragic event, he was going to be demonized by the Axis of Disinformation, because that is the final step in this strategy, in keeping with Alinsky Rule #12.  His statement on Saturday was perfectly fine.  Indeed, both former presidents with the last name of Bush issued almost exactly the same statement on Wednesday, and the media parroted it without negative comment.
  • Thus, the tactic that had drug on for too long – Russia Collusion – now has been shifted to a new tactic the leftists love – Trump is a racist, with the fake news media lapdogs loyally executing Rule #8, “Keep the pressure on.  Never let up.”
  • Make no mistake, this is the left’s playbook for as long as Donald Trump is President.  There will be no logical debates.  There will be no cooperation in congress, no compromise on Obamacare, tax reform, infrastucture or any other of the major issues.  Indeed, so long as congressional Republicans continue their own responsive tactics of cowering in fear and making carefully-worded statements that conform to the left’s current narrative, this is how it will be from now on, because that cowardly response by the GOP only breeds confidence among the left.
  • Real conservatives have a choice to make, and that choice amounts to surrender, or working to defeat the left without quarter and without compromise.  Conservatives need to deploy their own set of tactics against the left designed to achieve victory.  The tactics below are based on Alinsky Rule 1, “Power is not only what you have, but what the enemy thinks you have.”:
    • Stop engaging them in debate – after all, they stopped engaging with you in any real way a quarter century ago;
    • Work to regulate the hell out of social media monopolies like Google, Facebook, YouTube and Twitter.  Make Silicon Valley pay for its collective decision to become a propaganda arm of the Democrat Party.  Anti-trust rules exist for good reason – President Trump should work to become the reincarnation of Teddy Roosevelt;
    • The Justice Department should bring RICO prosecutions against the Clintons and top officials at their pay-to-play family crime foundation.  This classic mob-modeled racket is exactly why the RICO laws exist.  Use them;
    • Jeff Sessions should appoint a second special counsel to investigate Robert Mueller and his obvious conflicts, and his decision to hire only Democrat shills in his investigation, and a third special counsel to investigate Hillary Clinton’s email abuses, and Bill Clinton and Loretta Lynch’s efforts to fix the 2016 FBI investigation;
    • The President should appoint West Virginia Democrat Senator Joe Manchin to be Secretary of Energy, after moving Rick Perry over to be the Secretary of Homeland Security.  That will allow WVA GOP Gov. Justice to appoint a Republican to take Manchin’s place, raising the GOP’s senate majority by one.
    • The Republican senate majority should eliminate the filibuster rule entirely, eliminating the ability of the Democrat minority to roadblock progress.  If Majority Leader Mitch McConnell doesn’t have the stomach for this battle, conservative senators should refuse to cooperate with leadership until McConnell steps down from the job.
  • This could go on and on – there are tons of tactics at the disposal of real conservatives in this fight.  The point is this:  the Republican Party is the clear majority party in this country, and it is long past time that it started acting like it.  Republicans have allowed themselves to be cowed and paralyzed by the left’s Alinsky tactics for a quarter of a century now, and we see them still trying to engage these radicals in constructive debates on issues.
  • The Alinsky Democrats cannot be reasoned with, they can only be defeated.  Albert Einstein famously said that “doing the same thing over and over again, expecting a different result is the definition of insanity.”  There is no time like the present for conservatives to stop being insane.

Just another day in Saul Alinsky-dominated America.

That is all.

Everyone Chill Out, OK?

Just a little perspective on the current situation, and then I’ll shut up for the day:
 
  • The current effort by the fake media/Democrat Party ministry of disinformation to tar President Trump as a racist and run him out of office is just a repeat of the playbook they used against Ronald Reagan in 1981-84. Same tactics, same false claims, same inflammatory protests and rhetoric. We have, in other words, seen this movie before.
  • We should all remember that the ending to that movie in 1984 was the single greatest landslide re-election of any sitting president in the history of the American Republic. The average American is much more perceptive than Democrats believe they are.
  • We also need to remember this key difference between 1984 and today – The Democrat Party’s status has radically changed:

    • The Democrat Party in 1984 was a majority national party in almost every respect outside of the Oval Office.  It controlled both houses of congress, a majority of state governorships and a majority of state legislative houses.  It was the majority party in the West, the majority party in the Rust Belt, the majority party in the Midwest, and the majority party in the Northeast.  It had real leadership in congress, and a strong bench of younger, upcoming leaders.  What it didn’t have was a strong candidate to challenge Reagan, whose popularity boomed along with the national economy, which had come roaring back in response to his program of tax cuts.
    • By contrast, The Democrat Party today is in complete and utter disarray. It has no leadership that is attractive outside one fringe group or another.  It is now nothing more than a regional party comprised of an often-conflicting collection of single-issue grievance constituencies.  Its only unifying core philosophy is one of hate:  Hate Trump, hatred of white men, hatred of the police, hatred of the military, hatred of fossil fuels and pipelines.  It has no real leadership outside of the evil George Soros and the termed-out Barack Obama and the twice-failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.  It has no bench of young, upcoming stars to replace its current sclerotic leaders.  It is the majority party only on the West Coast and in some of the Northeast.  It controls neither house of congress, only 4 of 9 seats on the Supreme Court, only 15 of 50 governorships, and an even smaller number of state legislatures.  It is an utterly corrupt and dying entity.
    • Even better for the Republicans, the termed-out Barack Obama, whose feckless and corrupt rule from the radical left and deployment of Alinskyite tactics against his political enemies led directly to the fall of the Democrat Party, is promising to move back onto the political stage this fall.  This can only work to the GOP’s advantage.
  • So tonight, when you turn on CNN or MSNBC (for what reasons I can’t even fathom at this point other than self-abuse)  and see a panel made up of 4 squealing liberals, 2 pontificating fake Republican Trump-haters, and a token real Republican who is there for “balance”, realize that fewer than 1 out of 3000 other Americans are joining you in that inexplicable activity.  Most of them are hopelessly lost souls, but they do not a majority make.
  • Meanwhile, the U.S. economy continues to heat up; the FBI and Justice Department appear to be turning back into real, functioning law enforcement entities again; U.S. foreign policy is working again, even at the previously worthless United Nations; the swamp creatures who have infested and corrupted the State Department, the IRS, the Interior Department, the Energy Department, the EPA and the Department of (no) Education are being run off in droves; the rapidly rising production and exports of oil, coal and liquefied natural gas are turning the U.S. into an energy powerhouse on the international stage; and there have been more than 1 million new jobs created in our country during the first half of 2017.
  • As we sit here today, all of these factors and many more mean it is very likely, given good health, that Donald Trump will be a two-term president.  So do what I’m going to do this evening:  stop worrying and be happy.

That is all.

The President Was Right To Tell The Full Truth About Charlottesville

Today’s Campaign Update 

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

  • Let’s start by stipulating this:  Everything President Trump said in his press conference yesterday about Saturday’s events in Charlottesville was 100% true.  That, of course, is why he was so viciously assailed by every fake reporter in the fake national news media following that press conference.
  • Wait, what? – Yes, that’s how it works with the fake news media these days.  Hell, it’s always how it’s worked with the fake news media.  You have a 100% dishonest class of people – fake journalists and editors at the nation’s major media outlets – who are coordinating with another 100% dishonest class of people – progressive Democrats – to brainwash the public into believing a false narrative, a narrative that demands that every public official who comments on Charlottesville claim that all the violence that happened there was committed by the racist dimwits and thugs of the “Alt-right”.  The racist, leftwing, violent thugs who hundreds of video streams show instigated most of the violence are to be portrayed as “peaceful, well-meaning counter-protesters.”
  • Toe that line and you’ll be fine. – As long as politicians stick to that false narrative, they know they won’t be savaged by the press.  And so, the usual fake Republicans like John McCain and Mitt Romney do their virtue signaling by issuing tweets like Romney’s from last night, which reads “No, not the same. One side is racist, bigoted, Nazi. The other opposes racism and bigotry. Morally different universes.”  So, he’ll be fine, in keeping with his hopes of challenging President Trump in 2020, and winnning the GOP nomination so he can hand another presidency to the Democrat candidate on a silver platter, as he did for a very beatable Barack Obama in 2012.  That’s Mitt Romney’s role in life.
  • But here’s the thing:  Everybody involved knows the narrative is false.  Everyone involved – Republicans, Democrats and the fake journalists – knows that those Antifa and Black Lives Matter racist, violent thugs were bused into the city by groups funded by George Soros.  Everyone involved knows they showed up specifically to turn what had to that point been a violence-free protest into a riot.  Everyone involved knows they came armed with baseball bats, pepper spray, rocks, bags of urine and other weapons with which to assault both the right-wing bigots and the police.  Everyone involved knows that that’s exactly what they did.  It’s undeniable.  It’s all on video, captured forever for anyone who wants to view it.
  • For Donald Trump, his choice was to follow the advice of his talking points monkeys and toe the media/Democrat narrative in an attempt to avoid being attacked, or follow his instincts and be honest about the situation:  That both sides were violent, that both sides were guilty, that thuggery and racism and bigotry emanated from both sides in Charlottesville on Saturday.  He even tried to toe the media/Democrat narrative line, reading a very strong statement on Monday, and was savaged by the media anyway.  That taught him a lesson, and that lesson is that there’s no reason to throw the fake news media those bones – they’re going to attack him regardless of what he says.  So, on Tuesday, he decided to simply go with his instincts, and fight back.
  • So he told the truth:  There is plenty of blame to go around. There was bigotry on both sides.  There was violence on both sides.  The leftist protesters did not have a proper permit, the right-wingers, as repugnant as their views are, did have a proper permit.  The same Antifa and BLM thugs who have committed violence and staged riots in dozens of other Democrat-run cities around the country since January showed up en masse in Charlottesville and almost immediately assaulted the right-wingers.  It was after all of that had taken place that the Nazi scumbag rammed his car into a group of the leftwingers, tragically killing one woman.  That’s the truth, it’s how it happened, it’s all captured on video.
  • The fake news media basically asks you “Hey, who you gonna believe?  Us, or your lyin’ eyes?”  This is not a hard choice for any well-intentioned, thinking person.  Sadly, such people are incredibly rare on the left side of the political spectrum these days.
  • American voters do have a choice:  We can have a President who is going to do his best to deal with the reality of situations such as Charlottesville, or we can, in 2020, go back to previous form and elect yet another timid politician who is happy to parrot scripts written for him by talking points monkeys that carefully conform to whatever false narrative the media/Democrat ministry of disinformation is putting out on any given day.
  • We have to remember that Donald Trump won the 2016 election precisely because he is NOT like our last four globalist, talking points-reading presidents in any way. The media hates it, the Democrats hate it even more, and the squish Republicans like McCain and Romney and Lindsey Graham may hate it most of all.  And that’s why he won: because most Americans detest all of those three segments of our nation’s ruling class.
  • President Trump was right to go with his instincts on Tuesday, and right to tell the full truth about what happened in Charlottesville.  Fake media firestorms come and go, but the truth persists.

Just another day in fake news media America.

That is all.

I’m Much Too Young To Feel This Damn Old

Here are some things I’m old enough to remember:

  • I’m old enough to remember when, three weeks ago, the Democrats plagiarized PapaJohn’s Pizza with a new slogan promising they were going to focus on “Better Jobs, Better Wages”, instead of dividing America.

  • I’m old enough to remember 7 days ago when Senator From The News Media John McCain lambasted President Trump for his aggressive posture towards the Crazy Little Fat Guy in North Korea, saying it wouldn’t work.
  • I’m old enough to remember all the way back to January, when Charlottesville Mayor Mike Signor declared his city to be the “Capital of the ‘Resistance’ “.
  • I’m old enough to remember when it was the communists in the Soviet Union and radical muslims in Afghanistan who were going about toppling statues and trying to erase history, rather than the Democrats here in the U.S.
  • I’m old enough to remember when the global temperature records kept by NOAA hadn’t been falsified for political purposes.
  • I’m old enough to remember when radicals on the Berkeley campus were peacefully demonstrating in favor of free speech, not violently rioting to restrict it.
  • I’m old enough to remember when senators of both parties rallied around the president of the United States whenever some nutjob dictator threatened to bomb our homeland, and when those who didn’t do so were criticized rather than praised by the news media.
  • Speaking of the news media, I’m old enough to remember when it was only partially fake.
  • I’m old enough to remember when Barack Obama said “We can’t drill our way to lower gasoline prices.”  Oops.
  • I’m old enough to remember when The National Review was a conservative journal, and The Weekly Standard wasn’t edited by Hillary Clinton shills like Stephen Hayes and Bill Kristol.

  • I’m old enough to remember when the panels on Fox News’s “Special Report” were balanced, unlike the utter disgrace they aired Monday evening.
  • I’m old enough to remember when the Republican Party actually stood for something.

  • Hell, I’m so old I remember 1995, when the GOP had real leadership in both houses of congress.
  • I’m old enough to remember when Hollywood turned out watchable movies – you know, the kind with plots and acting and stuff like that.
  • I’m old enough to remember when I wasn’t a fanatic about Dallas Cowboys Football.  Ok, that’s a lie – I’ve always been a fanatic about Dallas Cowboys Football.
  • I’m old enough to remember when Nancy Pelosi wasn’t a doddering, babbling fool.  Ok, that’s a lie, too.
  • I’m old enough to remember when Maxine Waters lived in her own congressional district.
  • I’m old enough to remember when the Federal Bureau of Investigation was a functioning, respected law enforcement agency, i.e., the pre-James Comey years.
  • I’m old enough to remember when Obamacare didn’t exist and most Americans really did have affordable healthcare insurance.
  • I’m old enough to remember those seven years when every Republican in Washington (except for Sen. Susan Collins, who is really a Democrat) promised they were going to repeal Obamacare.
  • I’m old enough to remember when we all thought John McCain was a genuine American hero.  No really, virtually all of us did.  Silly us.
  • Finally, I’m old enough to remember when both major political parties respected the constitution, the American flag, and the national anthem.  Sadly, the Democrats no longer respect any of those things, and it’s hard to be sure whether many Republicans do anymore.

I’m much too young to feel this damn old.

Kim Backs Down – U.S. Diplomacy Wins For Once

Today’s Campaign Update 

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

  • Well, maybe the Crazy Little Fat Guy in North Korea isn’t quite so crazy after all. –  Shortly after Defense Secretary General James Mattis warned that the firing of North Korean missiles in the direction of any U.S. state or territory  would be an act of war and treated by the U.S. with an overwhelming response, the Crazy Little Fat Guy appears, at least for now, to have backed down.  In a silly-worded statement, the Crazy Little Fat Guy stated that he has decided not to launch the threatened four nuclear-armed missiles at Guam, a U.S. territory, saying he would “wait a little longer.”  Mr. Crazy went on to say that “If the Yankees persist in their extremely dangerous reckless actions on the Korean Peninsula and in its vicinity, testing the self-restraint of the DPRK, the [North] will make an important decision as it already declared.”  Ok, whatevs, dude.
  • Sorry, Chubby, we’re all out of unleaded. – Another big motivating factor influencing this decision was obviously the action earlier in the day by China to cut off most trade with North Korea, including oil exports to the little dictatorship.  Not even the Crazy Little Fat Guy is crazy enough to think he can run his military machine without fuel.  No oil, no war.  This is a really simple equation.
  • CNN’s gonna need some new talking points. – China’s move represents a big win for U.S. diplomacy, led by President Trump, Sec. of State Rex Tillerson, and U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley.  The move by China was its effort to comply with sanctions approved late last week by the U.N. Security Council, a proposal that was driven by the U.S. government.  It took months of focused diplomacy and arm-twisting – and even a few threats – with China and Russia to finally achieve the unanimous vote required to enact such international trade sanctions.  This, of course, does not fit the U.S. media’s narrative that the Trump Administration doesn’t do diplomacy, and so credit must go elsewhere in our fake media environment.
  • Wait, is the FBI becoming a functioning agency again? – In what was treated as a minor news story as the fake news media obsessed over Charlottesville, the FBI announced it had, for once, stopped a planned terrorist attack.  The agency arrested some dude named Jerry Varnell, who was planning to detonate a 1,000 lb. bomb in an effort to blow up the Federal Reserve Building in OKC.  No, really, after the Obama years, during which we would have a terrorist kill a bunch of people followed by news that the terrorist had been under surveillance by the FBI for years without the agency taking any action, the FBI actually arrested a terrorist before he could kill anyone!  Fantastic!
  • Hope springs eternal, maybe. – Of course, Mr. Varnell is a white guy who was threatening to blow up federal government property, while all the terrorists who committed acts in recent years while under FBI surveillance were Muslims who planned to just kill private citizens on private property.  It’s a sad thing, but I can’t help wondering if those factors have something to do with the FBI’s ability – or even willingness – to intervene with known terrorists before they kill people.  Hopefully, this arrest is just a sign that things really are changing within the Justice Department and FBI, both of which had been hopelessly corrupted during the Obama years.
  • Those Fightin’ Texas Aggies won’t be fightin’ this battle. – Speaking of Charlottesville and white nationalist demonstrations, the administration at Texas A&M University cancelled plans to allow what was being called a “White Lives Matter” demonstration on its campus in September, citing safety concerns.  “Alt-Right” icon Richard Spencer was scheduled to come to the campus on September 11 to lead the rally.  This move will of course be decried as suppression of free speech by Texas A&M – which, let’s admit it, it is – but, as long as the University also moves to cancel any planned rallies by violent leftwing George Soros groups like Black Lives Matter and Antifa, I really have no problem with this decision.  Free speech is a wonderful thing, and any person should be free to say and believe whatever repugnant things they want to believe and say.  But that doesn’t necessarily give anyone an unfettered right to stage any kind of rally they want to stage, and force universities to spend thousands of dollars on security to prevent violence from breaking out.  It just doesn’t.
  • And then he shouted “Hullabaloo, Caneck, Caneck!”*** – Incidentally, the best part of this whole episode was the statement from A&M Student Body President Bobby Brooks, who supported the University’s decision in classic Aggie fashion:  “Students have come from a multitude of backgrounds and sacrificed many things to attend Texas A&M, and they have the right to go to classes without fearing for their safety.  White supremacy and the violence that has accompanied it are most certainly ‘Bad Bull.'” **  Hilarious.

Just another day in ‘Bad Bull’ America.

That is all.

 

**  From Wikipedia: ‘Bad Bull’ means anything not in keeping with Aggie traditions or the Aggie spirit.

***From Wikipedia:  Beginning phrase of the Aggie War Hymn.  The lyrics are an onomatopoeic representation of the sound a cannon being loaded, or also the sound of a train rolling through town since there is a train track that splits the campus.

Exactly Whose Civil Rights Were Violated In Charlottesville?

Today’s Campaign Update 

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

  • The Justice Department announced late Saturday that it was sending in the feds to conduct an investigation into potential civil rights violations amid all the violence that took place in Charlottesville, earlier that day.  The big question is, whose civil rights were violated?  Let’s review the events of the day:
    • You had a properly permitted demonstration by a bunch of white supremacist dimwits that took place without violence;
    • Until, that is, those dimwits were set upon by a bunch of Antifa and Black Lives Matters agitators who were not properly permitted;
    • Violent clashes took place when law enforcement officials were reportedly ordered by Democrat officeholders not to try to prevent them, exactly as happened earlier in the year in Berkeley;
    • After the white supremacist dimwits had been dispersed, one of them decided to commit murder by driving his car into a pack of the leftist agitators, most of whom were white;
    • The one leftist killed by the idiot was also white.
  • So, whose civil rights were violated in Charlottesville on Saturday?  As detestable as they are, the white supremacists did have a legal permit for their repugnant demonstrations.  Violence only broke out when they were set upon by an obviously orchestrated, non-permitted group of leftist thugs.  The murderer made no racial distinction about who he attempted to kill, and killed only a fellow white person.
  • If the Justice Department investigators want to properly do their jobs, they might want to start by investigating the leftwing political activist Mayor of Charlottesville and VA Governor Terry McAuliffe, and determine which of them ordered the police to stand down and allow the non-permitted leftwing agitators to assault the white supremacists.  It is, after all, a felony for any official to knowingly make a decision that causes any protesters to be violently assaulted while in the exercise of their first amendment rights.  The investigators might also want to determine which Soros-funded leftist group it was that organized and paid those leftist agitators to be there on Saturday.  Other than those things, it’s really hard to see, based on the information in the public domain thus far, what other “civil rights” violations might have taken place in Charlottesville on Saturday.
  • Carrying tiki torches and nazi flags, and chanting idiotic white power slogans is detestable for sure.  It is also free speech protected by the First Amendment to the Constitution, and it is a federal crime to violently interfere with anyone’s right to exercise free speech.
  • I will no doubt be attacked and accuse of all sorts of false things for writing this, but if we aren’t willing to stand up for the protection of free speech and peaceful assembly in this country, then we soon won’t have a country.
  • The Mooch turns media moocher. – The Mooch is back, and he’s cashing in, folks, obviously trying to take full advantage of his 15 minutes – make that 10 days – of fame, and the fake news media is perfectly willing to play host to the comeback, as long as he’s critical of only the ‘right’ people.  Those people, of course, include White House Chief Strategy Advisor, Steve Bannon, but do not include National Security Advisor H.R. McMaster or any of the career Obama loyalists who still infest the White House staff.
  • During his interview with fake anchor and longtime Clinton toady George Stephanopolous, The Mooch identified only one senior advisor by name as being a negative influence on the President, and that was Bannon, who has been the main White House target of the fake news media since Inauguration Day.  The Mooch identified Bannon as a likely source of many of the leaks that have come out of 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. since January – which is a very common assumption, and not really news at all – and predicted that he’d be removed by new Chief of Staff John Kelly soon.
  • As long as The Mooch toes this party line, and doesn’t criticize McMaster or any of the media’s sacred cows in the White House, he’ll be a golden boy, and we’ll be seeing a ton of him on network TV in the coming weeks and months.  After all, with Senator From The News Media John McCain out of action, there is a ton of fake Republican air time to be filled, and the networks and CNN can only go to the Lindsey Graham well so many times.   The Mooch’s next stop, in fact, is tonight on CBS’s The Late Show, where he will be interviewed by Trump-hater Stephen Colbert.  If he gives Colbert enough red meat about Bannon, he’ll be on MSNBC with Chris Matthews by Wednesday.
  • Pretty soon, we’ll have to start calling him The Media Mooch.  It’s a great gig if you’re willing to sell yourself out, and with a nickname like The Mooch, can there really be any doubt on that score?

Just another day in fading free speech America

That is all.

The Fake News Media Created Charlottesville, and Will Create More in the Future

Today’s Campaign Update 

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

  • What happened in Charlottesville, VA on Saturday should surprise no one.  This was an inevitable outcome of this country’s lack of anything resembling an independent national news media.  If anything, it’s surprising it took this long for such a tragedy to happen.
  • For two years now, leftist agitators funded by George Soros-supported groups have been violently assaulting supporters of Donald Trump without a single word of objection or condemnation from any leader of the Democratic Party.  Not a word.  Worse, none of these “leaders” have been asked by anyone with any major national news outlet why they stand silently by as supporters of their political party engage in increasingly vile and violent protest actions.  Not a single Democrat politician has been questioned by any “journalist” why they not only refuse to condemn such actions, but tacitly endorse them by proclaiming themselves to be participants in the “resistance”.  Not a single “journalist” has asked any Democrat why they refuse to even condemn the rise of a neo-fascist group that calls itself “Antifa”, and which pays masked thugs to burn buildings, attack law enforcement officers and beat up anyone who disagrees with them.
  • Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe is one of those Democrat “leaders” who has proclaimed himself to be a part of the resistance.  It should surprise no one that, armed with the knowledge that a bunch of ignorant redneck White Supremacist dimwits were coming to one of his state’s cities to stage a rally, McAuliffe looked the other way as the Soros groups bused in hundreds of paid Antifa and Black Lives Matter (also Soros funded) counter-protesters into the city.
  • Guess what?  Violence ensued.  Lots of violence, as the police – no doubt on orders from Democrat politicians – made little effort to keep the violent leftist agitators separated from the ignorant redneck White Supremacists.  People were beaten with fists.  People were beaten with bats.  People were sprayed with pepper spray.  Police were assaulted, mainly by the Soros people (no surprise there).
  • Then, once all the rednecks had finished with their “White Supremacistin’ ” – presumably because their tiki torches had burned out and their wife beater shirts had begun to reek – and dispersed, some idiot from Ohio decided to drive his Dodge Challenger into a group of counter-protesters, killing one and sending 19 more to the hospital.
  • We will hear much talk in the news media in the coming days about the background of this guy, whose names is James Alex Fields, Jr.  We’ll see every fake journalist at CNN and MSNBC and the broadcast networks do everything they can to tie him around the neck of President Trump, and Republicans in general, something they have steadfastly refused to do with the Democrats and their Antifa and Black Lives Matter troops.
  • What we won’t hear much about is the fact that, as abhorrent as they are, the redneck dimwits had a valid permit to stage their rallies.  It’s sad, but it is a reality in our free society that clown shows like these people get to stage peaceful rallies if properly permitted.  That’s what the first amendment guarantees.  When properly managed by local officials and law enforcement, there is no reason for anyone to get hurt.
  • We also won’t hear that the Antifa and Black Lives Matters protesters had no such permit.  We won’t see much, if any analysis of who it is that paid those counter-protesters to show up, who paid for the buses they arrived in.  We won’t see much, if any analysis of the fact that the mayor of Charlottesville is himself a self-described “Democratic Activist” who was educated at…wait for it…Berkeley, whose campus was the scene of an Antifa-fed riot early this year.  We won’t see anyone in the mainstream news media point out the reality that all of the violence that took place on Saturday could have been easily avoided had the Democratic public officials in charge of the situation done their jobs rather than actively encouraging the confrontations.
  • It is because of the things we won’t see the media do in the wake of this tragedy – because we do not have a functioning, independent news media in this country that works to hold favored public officials accountable in any real sense – that we will see more and more Charlottesvilles repeated in other Democrat-run cities and states in the coming years

Just another reason to be thankful that Democrats only control 15 governor’s offices these days.

That is all.

It’s Almost Football Season, Thank God

Today’s Campaign Update 

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

  • I’m a huge football fan – the Dallas Cowboys and Texas Longhorns are my fall passions – so this is the time of year I start to get really excited about the coming season.  The off-season for football is much longer than for other sports, making the pent up energy to be released on opening day almost unbearable by the time August rolls around.
  • Unfortunately, the Cowboys got some bad news from the NFL on Friday, as star running back Zeke Elliott was suspended for six games over an allegation that he punched a young woman last year.  This decision is bizarre, and at least on the record presented publicly, completely without merit.  Don’t get me wrong:  If Elliott did punch this woman, then he needs to be punished, and punished hard.  The problem is, the NFL has literally nothing but her word for it, while Elliott had several witnesses corroborating all or part of his own version of things.
  • I listened to the NFL’s lawyer explain his reasoning for the decision at the league’s press conference , and it basically came down to “well, Elliott’s lawyers didn’t give us a strong alternate narrative, so we just assumed the girl was telling the truth.”  So in other words, Elliott was assumed to be guilty because he couldn’t prove he was innocent. I have a real problem with that reasoning, and come to think of it, so does the Constitution of the United States.
  • Elliott’s representatives immediately announced they would appeal the suspension.  It’s a good bet it will be significantly reduced, though not eliminated entirely.  Roger Goodell must save face, after all.
  • Outrage among the country’s social justice warrior community continues over the fact that no NFL team has chosen to saddle itself with Colin Kaepernick and his traveling media circus as its backup quarterback.  I say ‘backup’ because Kaepernick has conclusively and consistently demonstrated he is not fit to be a starter in the league.  One writer at the Washington Post hilariously reasoned that “If Kaepernick were Tom Brady, Matt Ryan, Dak Prescott or any of the other star quarterbacks in the league, he’d have a job.”  Well, yeah, he would, because if he were Tom Brady, Matt Ryan or Dak Prescott, he’d be a good quarterback.  Did that really need to be pointed out?  Holy cow.
  • The NFL’s 32 team owners are being accused of being racists, cowards and all sorts of other idiotic things, but seriously, why would any franchise want to saddle itself with a mediocre football player who makes a spectacle of himself for purely personal reasons every Sunday on the sidelines?  Teams have enough actual football problems to worry about each week without voluntarily taking on the media circus that invariably rushes to Kaepernick wherever he goes.
  • And guess what else?  Once Kaepernick gives up on sucking more money from an NFL franchise and tries to latch on in Canadian football, no team up there is going to hire him, either.  What this all comes down to is not ‘racism’ or ‘cowardice’ or ‘collusion’, it comes down to the fact that the guy has chosen to saddle himself with all this baggage, and he’s not a good enough football player for any team to justify taking that on.
  • But enough about the sideshows – the Cowboys kick off this evening at 8:00.  Yeah, it’s just a pre-season game, but it’s football, dammit, and that’s enough for me.

Just another day in shut up and play ball America.

That is all.

Kurt Schlichter’s Hollywood Doom Prophecy Is Already Taking Place

Today’s Campaign Update 

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

  • Kurt Schlichter, who has become the most provocative and frankly most enjoyable conservative opinion writer working today, penned a piece on Thursday titled “Politically Correct Hollywood Is Doomed.”  In the piece, he hilariously imagines the release of a series of films with politically correct themes and titles like Xe-Day, and Dirty Harriet, in coming years, all of which would miserably fail at the box office.  It’s highly recommended reading – it will be five minutes well-invested, trust me.
  • Turns out, though, that we don’t need Mr. Schlichter to make up imaginary films that fail miserably at the box office:  As the Wall Street Journal points out this morning, Hollywood is already cranking such duds out at an amazing pace, and theater owners are beginning to panic.  This summer’s box office take was down 5% compared to 2016, which wasn’t much of a year to brag about, either.
  • Of the season’s projected blockbuster action flicks – which included the execrable Johnny Depp slouching through yet another rehash of Pirates of the Caribbean, for crying out loud – only Wonder Woman can be termed a smashing success, as it grossed over half a billion dollars in the U.S. alone.  But that female super-hero flick was more than offset by tankers like King Arthur: Clash of Swords (grossed just $39 million on a budget of $175 million) and a horrific remake of The Mummy (grossed just $69 million in the U.S. on a budget of $345 million), which inexplicably starred Tom Cruise and Russell Crowe.
  • People in Hollywood appear to be mystified as to why their films aren’t making as much money as they used to, but they’re all morons who have no understanding of any American who lives outside of their tiny bubble, so we should expect nothing else from them.  The corporate suits who run the big theater chains appear equally mystified, but again, that thing about morons in bubbles applies.
  • Because of that lack of understanding, we can rest assured that Hollywood will continue cranking out action “blockbusters” that no one really wants to see (Like, we really needed yet another remake of The Mummy?  Who demanded that?), un-funny comedies whose “humor” trends more towards depravity and disgust with each passing year, and “dramas” that have no relevance to the lives of any American who does not live in Hollywood or New York City.  Meanwhile, Hollywood’s real, most obvious problem will go un-addressed.
  • What is that obvious problem, you ask?  Ok, guess it’s not that obvious after all.  Look, the film industry’s most obvious problem is that its major stars can’t keep their silly, dim-witted mouths shut on issues of politics and morality.  No American who lives in the 95% of the country outside of Hollywood and Manhattan needs to be lectured about politics by the likes of Meryl Streep.  No one out here in flyover country has any desire to take morality advice from Lena Dunham or the mentally deranged Ashley Judd.  We neither want nor need nitwits like Will Ferrell or Matt Damon lecturing us on the presidential or congressional races, nor do we desire advice on environmental matters from the likes Leonardo DiCaprio, who has a carbon footprint roughly equal to that of Rome, Italy.
  • The constant drumbeat of leftist political claptrap coming out of Hollywood amounts to a withering, unending assault on the sensibilities of half of the American population, perhaps more.  You want to know why the Academy Awards ceremony this year had the second-lowest ratings in the program’s history?  This is why.  You want to know why nobody wants to see Russell Crowe or Tom Cruise in The Mummy?  This is a big reason why.  You want to know why the ratings for the late night talk shows are a fraction of what they were 30 years ago?  This is why.
  • The average American wants movie stars to shut up and act, singers to shut up and sing, directors to shut up and direct, script writers to shut up and write, and producers to shut up and produce.  But of course, Hollywood is made up almost entirely of desperate, grasping attention-seekers, so that’s never going to happen.
  • The inevitable result will be a complete revamping of the Hollywood film industry model in coming years, as the industry continues to become less profitable.  A decade from now, all the big box theater chains will be out of business, most if not all films will be immediately available on pay-per-view, and the industry will bear little resemblance to what exists today.
  • We don’t need Kurt Schlichter to imagine all of that for us, because it is happening right before our very eyes.

Just another day in Shut Up And Act America.

That is all.
