Today’s Campaign Update (Because The Campaign Never Ends) – 3.15.2017

  • Honestly, I’m not sure even congressional Republicans can screw this one up.:  Congressional Democrats, after having spent the last 20 years squealing like stuck pigs about what a sacrilege it is whenever the Republicans have caused about 14% of the federal government to be shut down in a budget or debt ceiling fight, are now threatening to fight funding for President Trump’s border wall by …wait for it…wait for it…SHUTTING DOWN THE DAMN GOVERNMENT!  The proper GOP response to this threat is possibly the single biggest no-brainer in the history of the Republic:  Please, go right ahead!
  • Hey, whatever happened that Jill Stein?:   Isn’t she a pistol?  Do you think we could run her down and see if she’d do a recount of the CBO score on the Republican plan to repeal and replace ObamaCare?  Her results would be just as valid.
  • Tired of Winning Yet?  Part I.:  Foreign Policy magazine reports that President Trump has instructed the State Department to find ways to cut U.S. support for the various worthless United Nations programs by 50%.  Naturally, country club Republicans like Mitch McConnell and Lindsey Graham have already stated they would oppose such cuts.  Note:  If you’re from Kentucky or South Carolina, you need to pay better attention.
  • Tired of Winning Yet?  Part II:  Foreign Policy also reports that Secretary of State Rex Tillerson threatened that the U.S. might well withdraw from the detestable UN Human Rights council unless it enacts “major reforms.”  Awesome.
  • Further, cats and dogs on campus must now be referred to as “lovable furry companions”, and shrubs and trees are now to be called “leafy green shade-givers.”:  Officials at the University of Minnesota announced that the school would be dropping the terms “Homecoming Queen” and “Homecoming King”, and replacing them instead with the gender neutral “Royals”.   Because, well, – let’s be honest here – the officials at the University of Minnesota are a bunch of spineless idiots who are complicit in turning their students’ minds into useless mush.  There, I said it.
  • That’s also why they took up smoking.:  More than 8,000 airline flights destined to or from the northeastern states were cancelled on Tuesday, all because the folks at the National Weather Service (NWS) are incapable of forecasting the weather more than 8 hours in advance.  Making matters worse, NWS officials admitted they actually suspected in advance that snowfalls would not hit the major cities like they had previously thought, but decided to stick with their more alarmist forecasts “out of extreme caution.”  I swear, I SWEAR I don’t make this stuff up.
  • The Twitter-verse went all…ummm…a-twitter yesterday around 7:00 when fake MSNBC host Rachel Maddow Tweeted out that she had obtained “Trump tax returns”, and would reveal them on her program at 8:00.  The big reveal?  It turns out that, in 2005, Mr. Trump paid $38 million in income tax on $150 million in income.  To which most thinking people responded, “man, sure wish I had the chance to to pay $38 million in income tax, just one time.”  After that “big reveal”, the Twitter-verse went all…ummm…a-twitter about how embarrassing it all was for Rachel Maddow.

Today’s Campaign Update (Because The Campaign Never Ends) – 3.14.2017

  • Wooing practice begins at 9:00 sharp, Madam Chancellor.:  The blizzard bearing down on Washington DC caused German Chancellor Angela Merkel, whose open borders policies are in the process of utterly destroying her country’s native culture, to postpone her planned meeting with President Trump today.  But whenever they do meet, Der Spiegel reports that the Chancellor is “planning woo Trump, rather than confront him” over his plans to enforce America’s immigration laws.  Somehow, I don’t think Ms. Merkel will find a very receptive audience for this strategy.  Might be best to postpone this meeting until a better approach can be devised.  Like invading Poland, for example.
  • MSNBC will no doubt soon be offering him his own prime time talk show.:  The irresponsible nitwits who run Austin’s SXSW drunk-and-traffic-fest provided a platform for the debut of an absurdly plotted “documentary” by a Michael Moore disciple named Jason Pollock, which claims to reveal ‘new evidence’ in the Michael Brown case.  Despite the easily-discerned fact the film is an abject work of fiction that reveals nothing but the dishonesty of the filmmaker and incredible gullibility of its audience, riots very predictably broke out in Ferguson, MO.  This gave the talking heads at CNN something to talk about other than President Trump, so I guess we should be grateful for that.
  • Yes, in the same sense that a lion loves a zebra.:  Speaking of SXSW, the comical fake editor of the NY Times, Dean Baquet, told an audience there that President Trump “actually loves the New York Times.”  Such fake hubris is fake unbecoming of you, Mr. fake editor.
  • How many different positions will James Comey take on this?  The over/under is currently 3.:  Snoop Dog released a video in which he pretends to shoot President Trump.  Predictably, there is no outrage coming from the fake news media in response.  Imagine how Martha Raddatz or Jake Tapper would have responded if a high-profile artist had released such a video when Barack Obama was President.  Your fake news media in action.
  • Last week they were all claiming the then-unseasonably warm temperatures were due to “global warming.”:  A major blizzard blew into the northeastern seaboard last night, and will blanket everywhere from Washington, DC through Maine with a major late-season snow.  Climate frauds everywhere are blaming this very common periodic occurrence on…wait for it…wait for it… “climate change”.  Because that’s what climate frauds do.
  • Yes, because the Tea Party uprising was a truly organic occurrence, and everything the left is doing is utterly fake.  See the difference here?:  The interminably dense fake journalists who inhabit Nate Silver’s 538.c0m blog published an hilariously dimwitted piece titled, “The Left Might Have a Hard Time Replicating The Tea Party’s Success”.  You don’t say….

Just another day in Fake News Media America.

Today’s Campaign Update (Because The Campaign Never Ends) – 3.13.2017

  • That moment when one fake news outlet attacks another fake news outlet, as reported by yet another fake news outlet.  This is getting extremely fake-complicated.:  Dean Baquet, the fake editor of the fakest fakety fakey fake Newspaper of Record, the New York Times, got all sassy regarding the fake news competition yesterday.  He told an interviewer with another fake news outlet – The Hill – that the new slogan adopted by the Washington Post, “Democracy Dies in the Dark”, “sounds like the next Batman movie.”  Oooooh, burn!
  • Hey, could we just scrap that whole college degree requirement while we’re at it?:  The Associated Press reports that New York teachers’ unions are demanding that the state scrap a basic literacy test that is given to prospective public school teachers.  The test is similar to tests that these teachers would be giving to their students.  The reason they want to do away with the test is so predictably pathetic it would make a normal person (i.e., not a Democrat politician or fake news media employee) cry:  too many prospective teachers are failing the test.  No one could have ever seen that one coming.
  • The Senator From The News Media’s blood sugar was low again on Sunday.:  Arizona Senator John McCain continued his campaign to maximize this appearances on MSNBC and CNN, telling an interviewer on Sunday that he is demanding President Trump prove his claim that Trump Tower was wiretapped by the Obama Administration.  “The president has one of two choices, either retract, or to provide the information that the American people deserve,” McCain said.  That single sentence will net the cranky Senator two eight-minute segments with Chris Matthews on MSNBC’s “Hardball”.  No word if CNN is considering simply making McCain the host of a nightly hour-long program in its failing prime-time lineup, but it should be.
  • Just one more thing for the Senator from the news media to get cranky about.:  The Washington Post reports that the budget submitted to congress later this month by President Trump (I never get tired of typing those words) will contain “historic cuts” in the federal work force.  Of course, the fake news reporters who wrote the story fail to mention the fact the historic increases in the federal work force created during eight years of Barack Obama.  In any event, we can expect to see hundreds of fake sob stories from the fake media as it mounts a coordinated campaign with the Democrats to make sure that each and every federal worker keeps his or her job in the coming weeks.  Because acting as the propaganda wing of the Democratic Party is what the fake news media does.

No Way To Enforce Production Discipline On The U.S. Oil And Gas Industry

Another CERAWeek conference has come and gone, producing, as it always does, literally hundreds of stories in the global energy-related media.  But the biggest news related to the oil and gas industry that happened during the week was unrelated to the conference.

That of course was the precipitous drop in the global price of crude on Thursday and Friday, following the report of a record inventory build in the U.S. While this climb in stocks is probably temporary in nature, it was taken as a sell-off signal for long positions by a market that was already nervous about the slow pace of closing the global supply surplus despite the reported high level of OPEC nation compliance with the group’s production limits agreed that became effective on January 1.

Today’s Campaign Update (Because The Campaign Never Ends) – 3.12.2017

  • Next time someone asks for your resignation, you say YES! – Preet Bharara, one of the few holdover U.S. attorneys who has been a stalwart opponent of the rampant corruption that infested the Justice Department during the Obama Administration, was fired late Saturday after he refused to assent to Attorney General Jeff Sessions’ request of all holdover U.S. attorneys to turn in letters of resignation.  Bharara’s resignation may or may not have been accepted by AG Sessions, but his refusal to follow a request from his boss left Sessions little choice but can him.  Mr. Bharara obviously believed he had gained a status that made him immune to the chain of command.  The President just disabused him of that notion.
  • Proof that even a blind squirrel finds an acorn every now and then. – Shortly after Bharara’s firing, CNN fake anchor Jake Tapper sent out a Tweet that stated, “Acting deputy Attorney General Dana Boente just called US Attorney Preet Bharara and told him President Trump was firing him.”  It was the first non-fake news Mr. Tapper has reported since 2015.
  • Very predictably, he hails from California. – Some guy named Jonathan Tuan Tran was arrested on the White House grounds after jumping the perimeter fence.  Mr. Tran – who told arresting officers he was in possession of secret information about “Russian Hackers” – was carrying a laptop, a book written by the President and a letter to Mr. Trump at the time of his arrest.  He also told the officers he was a friend of President Trump, and had an appointment.  The Secret Service begged to differ.
  • Tired of winning yet? – Speaking of California, the LA Times reports that, in the Golden State alone, almost 100 construction firms have lined up to try to get a piece of the business for building President Trump’s proposed border wall.  Establishment elitists and fake reporters who view everything through a political lens are shocked.  Normal people aren’t.

Today’s Campaign Update (Because The Campaign Never Ends) – 3.11.2017

  • Don’t let the door hit you in your…well, you know the rest. – It took longer than we would have liked, but Attorney General Jeff Sessions requested the resignations of all 46 remaining Obama-era U.S. Attorneys on Friday.  There are 94 U.S. Attorneys in total, which means that 48 had already chosen to do the right thing without having to be asked.  It is not clear whether Sessions will accept all 46 resignations, assuming all the leftovers have the good grace to comply with his request, but we can be sure that the vast majority will be gone soon.  Failing to take this action upon assuming office was one of the single biggest errors in judgment George W. Bush made, as many of the Clinton holdovers did everything they could to undermine his Justice Department and administration. Good to see President Trump and the Attorney General are clear-eyed in the need to clean out this particular sector of the DC swamp.  Cool.
  • Wait…she said what??? – When it comes to the expression of rank hypocrisy in the most blatant manner possible, San Fran Nan Pelosi never disappoints.  On Friday, Ms. Pelosi, famous for telling constituents during the ObamaCare debates in 2009 that “We must pass the bill in order to see what’s in it”, sent a letter to House Speaker Paul Ryan in which she said, in part “The American people and Members have a right to know the full impact of this legislation before any vote in Committee or by the whole House.”  While that is certainly fair and valid point for the Democrats to make, they chose the most unfortunate messenger possible to make it.  But then again, what else is new where the Democrats are concerned?  I mean, who were they going to get to do it – Maxine Waters, who thinks Russia is at war with Korea?  Let’s face it, the pickings are pretty slim over there on that side of the aisle.
  • Here’s an example of why they had to go with San Fran Nan – Our favorite Commie, the loser Bernie Sanders, was quoted as saying “We have lost the White House, the U.S. House, the U.S. Senate, almost two-thirds of the governors’ chairs and close to 900 legislative seats across this country. How can anyone not conclude that the Democratic agenda and approach has been a failure?”  See, to the Democrats, dealing with issues in the most hypocritical manner possible is far preferable than having to stare that sort of reality in the face.  The rest of us should encourage them to keep up the good work.
  • We needed a study to tell us this?  Really? – Heat Street reported on Friday that “A new study by the Wesleyan Media Project has found that the 2016 presidential campaign run by Hillary Clinton is without a doubt one of the worst-run political operations in years.”  Man, we could have saved these guys a whole bunch of money on that study deal.  That’s like conducting a study to determine whether or not Russia really is at war with Korea.  If you don’t already know the answer, why would anyone take you seriously in any event?

Today’s Campaign Update (Because The Campaign Never Ends) – 3.10.2017

 

  • Wait.  Is that even possible? – Two New York University professors recently ran an experiment that yielded shocking results.  They organized a mock replay of the first debate between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton, only they had the debaters’ genders reversed.  Their goal was to demonstrate that Trump’s conduct in the debate would have been completely unacceptable coming from a woman.  Instead, what they demonstrated was that Hillary Clinton would be even less popular than she already is if she were a man instead. “We both thought that the inversion would confirm our liberal assumption—that no one would have accepted Trump’s behavior from a woman, and that the male Clinton would seem like the much stronger candidate,” one of the profs explained.  Yeah…no.
  • But hey, they’re working 9 days in May, so… – House Speaker Paul Ryan, in an interview with Tucker Carlson Wednesday evening, acknowledged that the House is planning to only be in session for 8 days during the month of April.  When asked why that is the case, Speaker Ryan responded that “we want to go listen to our constituents.”  Oh, yeah, that’s a peachy idea – go spend 22 days back in the district holding townhalls so Soros-funded radicals can give the fake news media hours of video with which to make you look like a bunch of ineffective simpletons.  Great plan, Republicans.  (This is me, smacking my damn head.)
  • I was going to let that topic go at that, but I just can’t. –  Look, somebody has to get to the Speaker and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and remind them that barely a year ago, the Republicans in the congress were the single most detested class of politicians in America.  Even more than the Democrats or President Barack Obama, they were the main reason why millions of people out here in “flyover country” were furious at the elitists Washington DC ruling class.  They were bailed out of that predicament temporarily by the rise and ultimate victory of Donald Trump over The Most Corrupt Woman in America, but that doesn’t mean that Americans detest them any less than they did a year ago.  If this congress continues on its current path of accomplishing literally none of the major promises they all made during their campaigns, they will suffer mightily at the polls in 2018, regardless of how disgracefully the Democrats continue to behave.  And that retribution will be richly deserved.  It might be wise for the GOP congress to spend more time in DC getting real things done, and less time trying to deflect blame for their own non-performance.  Just a thought.
  • The GOP Congressional Motto:  Always Look a Gift Horse In The Mouth – Two new polls out on Thursday show massive, huge majorities of Americans are in favor of President Trump’s proposal for a $1 trillion infrastructure program.  A poll by Quinnipiac shows a surreal 90% support level for the proposal, while a new CNN poll comes in with a comparatively-paltry 79% support level.  If you’re thinking this level of popularity makes this program a completely no-brainer for the GOP majorities in congress to get behind and easily pass into law, well, you need to bone up on the behavior of GOP congressional majorities.  Their main aptitude has always been and appears to still be their amazing ability to screw up when presented with easy wins.  There is no real reason to expect this particular easy winner to turn out any differently.
  • You don’t say… – The fake news site BuzzFeed, which has shamelessly promoted the absurdly fake “Trump coordinated with the Russians” story for months now, quietly ran a report in which it quotes Democrat sources on the House and Senate Intelligence Committees expressing concerns that their ridiculous investigations into this fake matter are going nowhere fast.  “I don’t think the conclusions are going to meet people’s expectations,” one of the sources said.  Well, let’s clarify – they aren’t going to meet the expectations of the Democrats and the fake media reporters who have so shamefully promoted this fake story since last October, but they are going to exactly meet the expectations held by me and many, many others.

  • Ironically, she is still her political party’s highest-ranking official. – San Fran Nan Pelosi, the Democrats’ doddering House Minority Leader, was in the middle of yet another incoherent anti-Trump rant yesterday, when she paused, after saying the word “ironically”, and said, “I’m not sure if ‘ironically’ is even a word.”  Ironically, none of the fake reporters present thought to clarify that question for her.  Probably none of them knew the answer.  #Irony

Today’s Campaign Update (Because The Campaign Never Ends) – 3.9.2017

  • Tired of winning yet?  Part I – The ADP private sector jobs report for February came in at 298,000 new private sector jobs created by the Trump economy in its first full month, the largest jump in years, and fully 100,000 more than “experts” had anticipated.  This is what happens when we elect a President who actually cares whether or not people have jobs.  That hasn’t happened in awhile.
  • Tired of winning yet?  Part II – The San Antonio Express News reports that apprehensions of illegal immigrants along the Southern border slowed by more than 40% in President Trump’s first full month in office, and border detention centers (which the fake news media used to call “holding center” or some other more innocuous term during the Obama years) are now running at less than 20% capacity.  This is what happens when we elect a President who actually cares about enforcing the nation’s immigration laws.  That also hasn’t happened in awhile.  A very long while, in fact.
  • Tired of winning yet?  Part III – Erik Wemple, a fake journalist at the Washington Post, posted a story in which he quotes members of the White House Press Corps whining about the “unsustainable pace” of having to cover President Donald Trump, who works at all hours of the day, gets lots of stuff done every day, and creates controversies or has fake controversies made up about him pretty much every day.  Why, these reporters, who had gotten used to a President whose main strategy for his final 7 years in office was to literally do nothing about anything, are seeing their formerly extremely active social lives suffering as the result of having to actually work for a living!  Amazingly, Mr. Wemple actually thinks that Americans should sympathize with their plight.  This is what happens when we elect a President who actually likes to do his job.  Awesome.
  • Did the CIA sign off on this? – Samsung announced it will be moving some of its manufacturing and jobs currently located in Mexico to the United States.  No word if the CIA has signed off on this move, but given the news this week – thanks to WikiLeaks – that the intel agency has been spying on citizens via the microphones contained in Samsung smart televisions, the move seems to make all sorts of nefarious sense.
  • Oh, my…. – If you think Monday’s release of WikiLeaks’ so-called “Vault 7” trove of documents contained the extent of the CIA misery in this episode, think again.  A spokesman for WikiLeaks announced yesterday that the group has yet to release “99%” of the CIA-related documents currently in its possession.  Y.I.K.E.S!
  • The current state of feminism is…well, it’s a joke. – Yesterday’s “Day without women” strikes attracted very few participants, as most women have better things to do with their time than to go out and try to block traffic and entrances to work places, shouting idiotic slogans all the while.  The star of the show in New York City – where a few hundred turned out to block traffic at Trump Tower – was radical Muslim Linda Sarsour, who was one of the main organizers of the event.  Ms. Sarsour is a fervent advocate of Sharia Law.  Ladies, if you think of yourself as a “feminist”, and you let yourself be led around the streets of New York by an advocate of Sharia Law, you are…well, words kind of fail me.  For once.  It doesn’t happen often.

Today’s Campaign Update (Because The Campaign Never Ends) – 3.8.2017

  • She who laughs last laughs best – After having been removed from the shelves by Neiman Marcus and Nordstrom for purely political reasons, and subjected to boycotts from leftwing nutjobs, First Daughter Ivanka Trump’s clothing line is now suffering and about to go out of business, right?  Yeah…no.  The Hill reports that actually, since the first of February, the clothing line has experienced record sales.  Hah-hah, ho-ho, hee-hee.  It is to laugh.
  • Hey, maybe you guys should try reporting real news instead.  Hah-hah!  Man, I’m cracking myself up here!:  Having been totally burned by their use of the whole #fakenews thing, the fake news purveyors at CNN yesterday attempted to invent a different Internet meme, using the term “Viral Deception” instead.  The fake news network abandoned use of that term a handful of minutes later, after the term’s acronym – “VD” – went viral on Twitter and then the entire Internet.  Oopsie.
  • Liberal Professor Gets Mugged By Reality She Helped To Create!  Film at 11! – Allison Stanger is a liberal college professor at Middlebury College in Vermont.  When she helped organize a student/faculty lecture by author Charles Murray, the event was assaulted by a gang of rioting students who have been trained as good little liberals by the faculty at – guess where? – Middlebury College.  The rioters disrupted the event, and physically threatened Stranger, Dr. Murray and others conducting the lecture.  When the event was moved to a private room, the rioters banged on the windows, shouting obscenities and threatening violence.  Then, when Stanger and Murray attempted to leave the building, they were basically mugged by the rioting “students”, after which Prof. Stanger ended up in the hospital.  Remember the old saying that “a liberal is just a conservative who hasn’t been mugged”?  Well, welcome to the club, Prof. Stanger.
  • “MotthaF—–, please!!!!!!” – Samuel L. Jackson issued a profanity-laced tirade Monday evening, after Housing and Urban Development Secretary Dr. Ben Carson compared modern-day immigrants to those who came to America hundreds of years ago on slave ships.  After hearing of Mr. Jackson’s tirade, Bre Jackson, writing at The Federalist, did a little research and hilariously came up with no fewer than 11 times President Barack Obama publicly made the exact same comparison.  Strangely, after each of those 11 instances, Mr. Jackson somehow managed to remain stoically silent.  Go figure.
  • You don’t say…:  WikiLeaks release more than 8,000 pages of CIA documents describing the cyber-spying tools the agency employs in its daily activities.  You’ll find much more information on the details of this elsewhere, but given all the Democrat/fake-media-created hysteria about how the Russians supposedly “hacked” the DNC email servers last year, I found one item in all of this to be especially interesting:  The CIA has a hacking tool that allows it to hack into computers and leave “footprints” that are identical to those left behind by foreign hackers, include those from…wait for it…Russia.  The entire Democrat/fake media narrative on this relies solely on a CIA-issued report that claims it found “Russian” footprints on the hacked DNC computers.  It really is now long past time to convene a grand jury and start issuing subpoenas.
  • “I call that bold talk for a one-eyed fat man.” – Ok, well, House Speaker Paul Ryan is neither fat nor one-eyed, but he did engage in some seriously bold talk yesterday when he said he can “guarantee this plan will have 218 votes” when it comes to the floor of the House.  He was of course talking about the plan to repeal and replace ObamaCare that he and his leadership team rolled out on Monday.  By mid-day Tuesday, after every conservative and conservative group in America had come out vocally against the plan, it was obvious that that number of votes isn’t there yet.  Given that the Speaker also said he expects the plan to go to the floor perhaps as soon as this month, what all this means is that you are about to see a level of wheeling and dealing among Republicans in the House that will make your head spin.  It’s going to be a wild ride, and you can bet the fake news media will mis-report on it every step of the way.

Just another day in fake news media America.
