Depraved Democrats Find Their Evil Plan Isn’t Working. Expect More Depravity to Follow.

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Barack Obama and the Pantsuit Princess are jealous. – Turkey’s dictator Tayyip Erdogan “won” another heavily-rigged fake election over the weekend, and will now serve as that country’s “president” through 2023.  For stealing and suppressing enough votes to allow him to hold onto power, the ThompsonReuters fake news agency called Erdogan “the most popular but also the most divisive politician in modern Turkish history”.  The Fainting Felon has long had the “divisive” part down pat, but still aspires to achieve such “popularity.”

Leftists hate you and want to take away your freedoms, Part 11,985. – San Fran Nan was unusually quiet over the weekend, possibly due to recent polls showing her public image with voters is toxic to her Party’s chances in the November elections, so the Democrat Party’s “depravity-and-dementia-on-display” factor had reached a low ebb on Saturday morning.  But then, like clockwork, Mad Maxine Waters kicked her lunatic self into gear..

Rep. Waters drummed up a few dozen people who were either her nutjob supporters, paid activists, bullied staff or, most likely, some combination of the three to hold a demonstration outside of the Wilshire Federal Building in Los Angeles Saturday afternoon.  There, she engaged in full-on incitement to violence, urging leftists all over the nation to engage in harassment of Trump Administration personnel anytime they come across them in public.

Falsely claiming that President Trump is “sacrificing our children” along the southern border – because of course Maxine Waters has to begin any speech with an inflammatory statement that is a lie on multiple levels – the raging dimwit went on to state that “History will record while he tried to step on all of us, we kicked him in his rear and step on him,” and, “If you think we’re rallying now, you ain’t seen nothin’ yet,” because, of course, it’s the rallying that matters most.  *sigh*

Not finished yet (because of course she wasn’t), the braying buffoon then declared, without evidence, that “God is on our side!” before going onto threaten every member of the President’s cabinet:

“Let’s make sure we show up wherever we have to show up and if you see anybody from that Cabinet in a restaurant, in a department store, at a gasoline station, you get out and you create a crowd and you push back on them, and you tell them they’re not welcome anymore, anywhere.”

This is clear incitement to violence, a threat that, had it been made by any Republican office-holder during the Obama years would have been followed very quickly by a visit from the Secret Service, and which would have been immediately condemned by almost the entire GOP congressional caucus.  But from the depraved Democrats?  Not a peep.

Mark my words and feel free to quote me on this:  These depraved and deranged Democrats are going to get someone killed pretty soon, and when that happens, all hell is going to break loose.  It’s just a year ago that a Bernie Sanders fanatic shot up the House GOP’s softball practice, and people like Waters are clearly attempting to create another, similar event.  If you vote for Democrats, you really should hang your head in shame.

Speaking of Depraved Democrats (because why not?), they’re not getting the polling results they want from their many public displays of anti-social depravity, and it’s really starting to show.

First, they obviously got some really bad early polling data from the now-infamous “Red Hen” incident, in which the owner of that restaurant in Lexington, VA kicked Sarah Huckabee Sanders and her family out on Friday evening, because the Party sent Maryland Congressman Elijah Cummings out on the Sunday morning talk shows to actually say that the restaurant “should have served her.”  Trust me, those are words that the tireless demagogue Cummings would never have uttered absent some external driver, and that external driver was almost certainly some really awful polling or focus group data.

Then there’s the whole illegal immigration issue.  It turns out that two weeks of screaming, wailing and heinously lying about the issue of illegal alien children being temporarily separated from their illegal alien parents has resulted in some truly horrible polling numbers for….wait for it… the Democrats!

In a new Rasmussen survey on the issue, fully 54% of likely voters (Rasmussen is the only that polls likely voters) blame the parents, not the Trump Administration, for this situation, with only 35% blaming the government. But wait, it gets worse, much worse for the Democrats, as only 46% of independent voters blame the government on the issue.

And then this for a kicker:

“Fifty-four percent (54%) agree with President Trump when he says, “The United States will not be a migrant camp. And it will not be a refugee-holding facility – it won’t be.” Thirty percent (30%) disagree, while 16% are undecided.”

Think about the implications of that last finding:  Only 30% of likely voters are in favor of the Democrat Party’s real goal of unfettered, open borders for the United States after all of this hyperbolic rhetoric, lying, shouting and fake crying about the issue.  Somewhere, Rachel Maddow is probably shedding real tears for once.

Just another day in November is going to be a wipeout America.

That is all.

The Democrat Party Now Actively Supports Bigotry and Mob Rule

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

[Note:  The original text of this piece incorrectly identified Lexington as “suburb of Washington, DC.”  That’s what I get for relying on my memory for geographic accuracy.]

Leftists hate you and want to deprive you of your rights, Part 10,983. – The big news on Saturday came with the revelation that the owner of the Red Hen, a small, trendy restaurant located in the Northern Virginia town of Lexington, kicked White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders, her small children and five other members of her family out as they attempted to have dinner there on Friday evening.

The establishment’s owner, one Stephanie Wilkinson – who also apparently owns several other businesses in the small town – claims she received a call around 8:00 p.m. from her employees, notifying her that Sanders and her family were, gasp!, in the restaurant and expecting to plop down about $700 for dinner.  Noting that her employees were in a state of emergency snowflake triggering over having to serve a deputy of the President of the United States of America (because of course they were), Wilkinson donned her Birkenstocks, peasant dress and pussy hat (ok, just guessing there, but it seems likely) and rushed over to demand the paying, polite customers leave her greasy spoon immediately.

All parties present acknowledge that the Sanders party politely left.  Sanders even offered to pay for the privilege of being booted out of the place, but Wilkinson, being the raging nitwit she is, didn’t even want her money.  That would have been the end of it, but one of the spoiled, Millennial employees felt the need to post about it all on Facebook (because of course he did), which then produced an uproar on Twitter (because of course it did).

Sanders, in an effort to clear up all the lies being spread about the situation on social media, then decided to issue a tweet of her own about it:

This factual message set off another round of social media outrage, as leftist snowflakes became triggered all over again (because of course it did).

The fake news media is treating this situation as if it was just something that took place on the spur of the moment (because of course they are), that Wilkinson had no idea Sanders and her family were coming to dine in their restaurant and was just responding to the wishes of her triggered employees.

But let’s think about that:  The truth is that that Sanders had made the reservation well in advance.  The truth is that Ms. Wilkinson and her husband are leftist activists (because of course they are), as demonstrated conclusively in this photo:

This woman’s such a radical nitwit she even puts a pussy hat on her kid.  I’m sure he never gets bullied at school.

And then there’s this quote from her in the Washington Post:

“I’m not a huge fan of confrontation. I have a business, and I want the business to thrive. This feels like the moment in our democracy when people have to make uncomfortable actions and decisions to uphold their morals,” she told The Post.

Well, gosh, what better way to make someone feel uncomfortable than to see their name on your reservation list and hatch a plan to seat her party, get the drinks served and appetizer order taken, and then humiliate her, her young children and the five other people she’s with by kicking them out?

This of course comes just a few days after Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen was run out of MXDC, a really lousy imitation Mexican food place in Washington, by a bunch of activists who had been alerted to Nielsen’s presence by the restaurant’s staff.

As with everything else the Democrat Party and fake news media do these days, this is all stuff that is straight out of the Saul Alinsky playbook:  You take an issue, personalize it by demonizing selected targets and make it increasingly difficult for them to do their jobs or live their lives.  Very predictably, fake news media personalities and Democrat politicians praised the discriminatory actions against both women on social media, CNN and MSNBC.

Again, as with everything else the Democrats and fake media do, none of this is organic.  None of it just happens on the spur of the moment.  This tactic of humiliating Trump Administration personnel in public is obviously part of a well-coordinated plan, and it will soon spread to efforts to discriminate against anyone who publicly identifies as a Trump supporter if there are no visible consequences for the Red Hen or MXDC.

Conservatives have always shied away from engaging in boycotts or public demonstrations that attempt to shut such bigoted businesses down for two reasons:  1) most conservatives actually work for a living and don’t have the free time to go hang out on a street corner chanting stupid slogans and holding cardboard signs, and 2) conservatives know that any public gathering of more than 10 people whose politics are to the right of Fidel Castro will be spun by the fake news media as a gathering of Nazis.

But in today’s digital, Internet world, there are many other ways to negatively impact a business, especially those in the service industries.  Already, Red Hen’s website was crashed yesterday by a flood of people making fake reservations, as were their pages on Yelp and OpenTable by floods of people trying to post fake reviews.  Some enterprising hacker even managed to hack the business’s online menu with a note that dining there causes erectile dysfunction.

But back to the point, which is that the Democrats and their activist supporters in and out of the fake news media are now actively supporting discrimination and mob rule.  If you think otherwise, you just need to pay closer attention to what’s really happening in our society.

Way back in the early 1990s I wrote a newspaper column in which I discussed the increasingly obvious reality that Democrats’ ultimate goal was to make it illegal to be a Republican.  Many readers back then scoffed at that notion.  Those who are still among the living are probably not scoffing this morning.

Just another day in leftists hate you and want to take your freedoms away America.

That is all.

Mexico’s Next President Promises to Make Our Immigration Problems Exponentially Worse

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Tired of all this Winning yet? – JSW Steel announced a $500 million investment in the revitalization of the Acero Junction facility located in Mingo Junction, Ohio.  Faced with the possibility of import tariffs being implemented by the Trump Administration, JSW chose to make this massive investment in America rather than construct an entirely new plant in India.

“The Trump administration was the driver behind giving us in the U.S. the ability to compete for capital,” JSW Steel USA CEO John Hritz said during a First on FOX Business interview with Edward Lawrence on Thursday.  “We are going to revitalize that facility and that entire community.”  Other than the story linked here and a couple of other web-based reports, the fake news media completely ignored what would have been a major and extremely rare story during the Obama Administration.

Leftists hate you and want to take your freedoms away, Part 9,885. – Donny Deutsch, the hair jelled-up metrosexual doofus who for some reason appears on Morning Joe each morning, told the show’s puny audience on Friday that Trump supporters are “like Nazis” and encouraged leftwing agitators like Antifa to target such supporters rather than the President himself.

“What has to happen now is this can no longer be about who Trump is, it has to be about who we are if we’re working towards November,” he said. “We can no longer say Trump’s the bad guy. If you vote for Trump, you’re the bad guy. If you vote for Trump, you, not Trump, are standing at the border like Nazis saying ‘you here’, ‘you here.'”

So our fake news media has invented this border issue out of whole cloth, taking a standard process of  temporarily separating illegal alien parents from minors that is common practice in Canada and most other free nations and portraying it as the return of concentration camps – as I predicted they would back in December 2016.  They and their Democrat wards have now spent the last week becoming increasingly shrill and at times violent in an effort to turn this situation into an election-impacting issue, in keeping with the Saul Alinsky Rules for Radicals playbook that they religiously follow in their daily lives.

With a raft of late-week polls showing they are failing in this effort, mental midgets like Deutsch get frustrated and resort to just lashing out at anyone they can think to demonize, which is of course the clearest sign we can have that the bad people are losing the issue.  The Democrat/Media propaganda complex will continue trying to keep the issue alive for awhile longer, but it’s a loser for them because most Americans do not want the completely open, unregulated borders that is always the goal of the American left.  So you can bet they’re already getting ready go to the next page in their playbook and drum up a new fake issue starting next week.

So predictable.  So tiresome.  So utterly un-American.  That’s who these people are.

And hey, they have a new hero who is about to become President in Mexico.  Isn’t that wonderful?

Yes, friends, Andrés Manuel López Obrador, or “AMLO” as his supporters like to call him, is going to be elected the next President of Mexico come July 1.  AMLO is a 64 year-old leftist radical who has been bouncing around the Mexican political scene for 40 years, just waiting for the moment to arrive when he can seize power and turn our neighbor to the South into another banana republic in the style of Castro’s Cuba and Maduro’s collapsing Venezuela.  That time has now arrived, as AMLO is so far ahead of his pathetic opponents in recent polls that the vote is a foregone conclusion.

So if you think the problem of illegal immigration is bad now, just wait until this nutjob assumes office come December 1.  By this time next year, unless congress acts (which is like expecting your cat to scrub your toilets) we are going to be in the midst of a REAL humanitarian crisis down in the Rio Grande Valley of Texas, not some fake crisis made up by the fake news media.

And yes, you can quote me on that, because this is not speculation, it is an inevitability that AMLO is literally promising to create in his campaign speeches.  You don’t have to believe me, just check out these quotes from a speech this week that were reported by the Daily Caller on Friday:

“And soon, very soon — after the victory of our movement — we will defend all the migrants in the American continent and all the migrants in the world,” Obrador said, adding that immigrants “must leave their towns and find a life in the United States.”

He then declared it as “a human right we will defend,” eluniversal.com reports.

For all you Morning Joe viewers, Pantsuit Princess fans and Bernie Sanders sycophants out there, this is what any sane country would treat as an outright declaration of war.  This is a promise to not just do nothing to prevent the illegal migration of Mexican and Central American citizens across the border into the United States – which is what the current and past Mexican regimes have done – this is an open commitment to literally cause and lead an overt, intentional invasion of the Southwestern United States.

AMLO’s long-stated ultimate goal will be to overwhelm the social and political systems in the southwestern U.S. and, once that is accomplished – no doubt with the willing assistance of the Democrat Party and our fake national news media – begin a massive transfer of American wealth into Mexico.  AMLO’s leftist policies will inevitably decimate the Mexican economy and turn the country into a Venezuela-style failed state, and he’s ok with that.  Because that is the best way to encourage millions of Mexico’s citizens to attempt to flood across the border with the United States.

This is not a conspiracy theory;  this is not paranoia.  This is AMLO’s plan, a plan that he has publicly laid out a thousand times during a 40-year political career, a plan that Univision fake news anchor Jorge Ramos was applauding and supporting on Tucker Carlson’s Fox News show Thursday evening.

Here’s the thing:  It’s not just the Democrats who don’t give a damn about this, Paul Ryan and Mitch McConnell and the rest of the establishment Republicans in congress don’t give a damn about it either.  So get ready, because your government isn’t going to do a damn thing to stop it, other than whatever President Trump is able to do through executive action.

Just another day in this immigration problem is going to get exponentially worse America.

That is all.

Melania Trump trolls the media, media too dumb to figure it out.  Film at 11.

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

It’s just like that trash compactor scene from Star Wars, only R2D2 won’t be saving him. – The walls of the justice system closed in a little more on FBI Super Duper Agent and Aspiring Latin Lover Peter Strzok, as Attorney General let slip during an interview that hey, his security clearance has been revoked.  Note for the faint of heart:  This film does not have a happy ending for the former Texting Titan of the FBI.

Gosh, why would that be?  So, so hard to understand.  Oh, wait…  – A new poll from YouGov.org finds that public favorable view of the Federal Bureau of (fake) Investigation has dropped by 11 percentage points since February, as the details of the agency’s massive wrongdoings throughout 2016 and 2017 have made their way to light despite the best efforts of our fake national news media to keep them hidden.  The most disgusting part of the poll is that the FBfI’s most favorable ratings come from Democrats, who spent the 100 years prior to the inauguration of Donald Trump bashing the agency.  But hey, now they know it was nothing more than a tool of the Democrat Party trying to fix the election for the Pantsuit Princess, they love it.  It would be hilarious if it weren’t so sad for the country.

Speaking of polls, this whole fake border crisis isn’t working out too well for the fake news media and their Democrat wards.   A new poll from Rasmussen finds that fully 54 percent of likely voters blame the parents of these children for their situation (imagine that) and only 35 percent blame the government.  No doubt heads were exploding all over the headquarters of the DNC, CNN, the NYTimes and the WaPo after that poll came out.  This is not how this was supposed to go for them.  Not at all – not even close.

Democrats in Action! – Democrats on Tuesday:  “End family separation! End family separation!”

[Trump ends family separation]

Democrats on Thursday: “End family reunification! End family reunification!”

*sigh*

Melania Trump trolls the media, media too dumb to figure it out.  Film at 11. – The First Lady traveled to McAllen on Thursday to visit one of the facilities that is at the center of the latest episode of fake liberal outrage.  As she boarded Air Force One, all the fake reporters gasped in unison as they noted she was sporting a $39 jacket, on the back of which was the slogan “I don’t really care, do U?”

As if it were all a coordinated effort (note: it is), the entirety of the nation’s fake news media went immediately into deflection mode, ignoring the First Lady’s long, detailed visit with the children in the McAllen facility and her discussions with those who care for them, focusing instead on her fashion choice.  What does it mean?  Is she making a statement towards these poor, poor children?  Maybe she’s mad a her evil husband – that must be it!

All the social justice warriors on Twitter also went into an immediate rage, because, well, of course they did.  When one asked me “can you imagine what would be happening if Michelle Obama wore that jacket?” I responded “no, because I can’t imagine Michelle Obama ever putting on a $39 jacket.”

Several hours after the First Lady returned to Washington, we of course found out it was all an effort to tweak the fake news media’s collective nose, as the President issued the following tweet:

Hilarious.  Obviously, the White House strategy on this fake border issue is not just to let the Democrats and their fake media guardians wail away and reveal they don’t really give a damn about any kids, but to help them along by trolling them as the First Lady did yesterday.  While some might characterize that as callous, it is in fact entirely appropriate to the situation.

Think about it:  The outrage is false.  Pretty much every allegation leveled at the Trump Administration has been shown to be false.  Most of the images and video shown by the fake news media has been revealed to be from the Obama years, during which the media/Democrats never uttered a peep.  Even the little girl on the cover of Time Magazine has been shown to be a fake – she was never at any time separated from her mother.

The obvious next tactic the media/Democrats will be deploying today will be allegations that the children are somehow being “abused” by those caring for them.  By Monday, those allegations will also be proved to have been false, because this is what our fake news media does.

Given all of that, why should the Administration do anything other than taunt their opposition, and troll them into revealing their true nature and goals?  When literally everything about the opposition is fake, the opposition does not deserve a serious response.

And hey, as I write this piece this morning, President Trump has issued the following tweets:

Ok, I can stop now.

Just another day in now even Melania’s trolling the fake news media America.

That is all.

Note: A Conspiracy That is Slapping You in Your Stupid Face is not a “Theory”

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Take that, CNN and NBC!  – ABC News, desperate to gain its footing in the race to produce the fakest of all the fake news in the #fakenews universe, decided to just chuck it all on Wednesday and run news so fake that even some at CNN were embarrassed by it.  In the middle of the networks fake coverage of a real meeting at the White House, ABC’s chyron ran a blaring note claiming “Manafort Pleads Guilty to 5 Charges of Manslaughter”.

Obviously, Paul Manafort did not plead guilty to manslaughter or anything else for that matter, and so the obviously intentionally faked-up chyron message created a bit of a stir. ABC and its apologists – like Josh Feldman at Mediaite, tried to laugh it all off as a “malfunction” or a “glitch,” but it was obviously neither of those.  It’s hard to understand why ABC News thinks pulling such a stunt does it any good, other than gaining some temporary attention its fading newscasts are no longer able to garner, but pull the stunt they did.  Weird.

From our ICYMI File… – In case you missed the news on Tuesday, Starbucks announced it will be closing 150 of its corporate-owned stores across the country this year, most of them in “densely populated metro areas.”  This announcement comes bare weeks after the company announced its idiotic policy allowing anyone, anyone at all, to come in and hang out in their stores and use the restrooms regardless of whether they buy anything or not.

Oh, hey, guess where the homeless and vagrants and drug addicts tend to hang out in most of our large cities?  Would that be in “densely populated metro areas?”  Cause, meet effect.

Hey, it’s not a conspiracy “theory” when the conspiracy is standing there slapping you in your idiotic face. – Liberals who are not capable of making a cogent argument (that would be all liberals) have grown fond of labeling anyone who notes the reality that there was an anti-Trump cabal working within the DOJ and FBI throughout 2016 to fix the election and well into 2017 to attempt to hinder the duly-elected President of the United States as “conspiracy theorists.”

The term “conspiracy theory” did not even really exist in the American lexicon until the early 1950s, when then-CIA Director Allen Dulles began using it to demean anyone who alleged that the CIA had played a role in several coup d’etats in various third world countries.  Of course, those allegations were absolutely true, but the CIA’s many embeds in the national news media at the time were more than happy to deploy the tactic at Dulles’ bidding, and the tactic came in very handy following the assassination of John F. Kennedy as well. Documents related to that assassination released last fall 54 years after the fact reveal that, in November 1963, the CIA admitted to having more than 40 such media embeds working for it.

That was, of course, at a time in which our “national news media” consisted basically of ABC, CBS, NBC, the New York Times, the Washington Post, the Associated Press and United Press International.  Throw in Time, Life, Newsweek and U.S. News and World Report, and you’ve pretty much captured it all.

Now, fast forward 55 years, to 2018, and our exponentially-expanded media universe.  Then, recognize the enormous expansion of the number and size of the federal government’s intelligence agencies, including the counter-intelligence division of the FBI, where FBI Super Duper Agent and Aspiring Latin Lover Peter Strzok presided throughout the years in question, and played the lead role in basically every questionable investigation.

If the CIA alone had more than 40 operatives embedded in a media establishment that in 1963 essentially consisted of 11 major news outlets, think of how many such embeds our 18 or so intelligence agencies have active in such a vastly expanded fake news media universe.  The thought is literally breathtaking.

Given that likely reality, the fake news media’s coverage – or lack thereof – of the obvious massive conspiracy that was germinated at the highest levels of the Obama Administration (note that the “highest level” of any administration is the President himself), that we now know was formally authorized by John Brennan at the CIA, and was coordinated by the cabal within the DOJ and FBI not only comes as no surprise, it is exactly what one would expect from a compromised media establishment.  (Man, is that a great run-on sentence, or what?)

Indeed, one of the most fascinating findings of the report on the Clinton email scandal by DOJ IG Michael Horowitz was the careful documentation of more than 300 outright bribes made to a multitude of FBI personnel by fake news media outlets.  The IG report includes a great graphic which describes the incestuous bribe/influence network that existed between the FBI and various fake news media outlets throughout the faked-up Clinton probe.

And hey, it’s been just a little over a week since we discovered that a reporter for the New York Times was literally sleeping with a senior staffer for the utterly corrupt Senate Intelligence Committee so she could obtain classified information illegally.

So yes, there was a conspiracy, and there is no doubt about it.  Even worse, it is very likely that, between Rod Rosenstein, Robert Mueller and his gang of thugs, the anti-Trump conspiracy remains ongoing, though probably not for a whole lot longer.

Even worse than that for the health of our country, the fake news media are not innocent bystanders merely engaging in biased reporting on this conspiracy, they’ve been active participants in it and are still doing their best to cover it all up.

Now that, friends, is a conspiracy.

Just another day in it’s all going to come out in the end America.

That is all.

While the Fake News Media Tears its Hair out, Trump Achieves Major Policy Wins

The Evening Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

While the fake news media was sleeping…  – Hey, y’all, while all the lunatic democrats and fake journalists were tearing their hair out and tossing hissy fits about this fake border issue yesterday, President Trump used the opportunity to take the following actions:

– He pulled the U.S. out of the worthless UN Human Rights Council, which has been nothing more than a forum for bashing Israel; and
 
– He issued an executive order reversing Obama’s extremely idiotic 2010 Oceans Policy, replacing it with a policy of his own.  Thus, yet another aspect of the extreme un-American Obama legacy bites the dust, thanks to Donald J. Trump.
 
And the fake news media barely mentioned the Human Rights Council pullout, and still hasn’t even noticed the Oceans Policy reversal. Cool, huh?
For those unfamiliar with it, here is a good write-up on the Oceans Policy executive order:

Yesterday, President Trump issued an executive order from the White House establishing directions for revoking and revamping the Obama 2010 oceans policy. The Obama policy adopted a comprehensive management plan for the nation’s oceans, coastal waters and the Great Lakes. The new direction proposed by the Trump administration emphasizes economic and security concerns over marine conservation, sustainable use and climate change. Moving a national ocean policy away from data collection to providing opportunities and encouragement to state and local agencies for managing and guiding marine activities.

The Trump order stresses economic and security concerns. Stating that U.S. waters “are foundational to the economy, security, global competitiveness, and well-being of the United States.”

The Executive Order states that: “Ocean industries employ millions of Americans and support a strong national economy. Domestic energy production from Federal waters strengthens the Nation’s security and reduces reliance on imported energy.”

Obama’s policy was “protect, maintain, and restore the health and biological diversity” and boost “conservation and sustainable uses” of resources, and using “the best available science and knowledge to inform” management decisions and “understand, respond, and adapt to a changing global environment” have been superseded by the Trump Administration’s new priorities.

President Trump’s priority is directing federal agencies to coordinate on providing “economic, security, and environmental benefits for present and future generations of Americans,” and stresses the need to “promote the lawful use of the ocean by agencies, including United States Armed Forces.” A Trump policy priority is to “facilitate the economic growth of coastal communities and promote ocean industries,” “advance ocean science and technology,” “enhance America’s energy security,” and ensure that “Federal regulations and management decisions do not prevent productive and sustainable use of ocean, coastal, and Great Lakes waters.”.

So, a shift from a policy that is based on a leftist fantasy to a policy that emphasizes and promotes the gigantic economic opportunities and national security enhancements offered by the major waters of the United States.  Three years ago, this would have been the lead story on every evening newscast as liberals responded to the shift with their typical lunatic hysteria.  Today, it isn’t even a blink on the screen.

Genius.

Here’s Why the Democrats and their Media Propaganda Complex Are Panicked

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Democrats in Action!  – It is now no longer enough for Democrats and their spokespeople pretending to be journalists at our nation’s news outlets to simply fake the news on this fabricated border issue, now they must cry or otherwise become irrational while doing so.

Thus, on Tuesday we had the spectacle of Rep. Elijah Cummings pretending to breakdown crying as he screamed through his irrelevant opening statement at the House Judiciary Committee’s FBI corruption hearing, MSNBC fake host Rachel Maddow pretending to cry (without visible tears, of course) as she read a story about how HHS employees are placing the youngest children in separate centers designed to provide special care (because obviously, liberals oppose young children receiving special attention and care), and some bald-headed freak literally screaming through his entire 5 minute segment on Fox News’s “The Story” With Martha MaCallum. [Note:  I switched over to a baseball game after that, but I’m told Geraldo Rivera also went into a similar meltdown on the Sean Hannity program, along with panelists all over CNN and MSNBC.]

To top that off, you had the spectacle of some Democrat congressional staffer shouting “F*ck you!” at President Donald Trump as he walked through the halls of the U.S. capitol building, and a group of leftist agitators violently forcing Homeland Security Secretary Kirsten Nielsen to leave a restaurant where she was dining last night.

Obviously, the Democrat/media complex has some polling or focus grouping information that indicates that screaming and crying helps gin up public outrage on this subject.  Never mind the damage their idiotic histrionics do to our society, utterly destroying what little is left of civil discourse, they couldn’t care less.  These are truly desperate times for these people, and that desperation is playing out on all of our television screens each day and night.

The most scary part of all of this is that they will only become more desperate as November 6 approaches.  And make no mistake:  If these people obtain polling data or focus group results that indicate outright violence and rioting might knock the President’s public approval ratings down a couple of points, they will get a bunch of money from George Soros and pay a bunch of professional agitators to stage violent demonstrations and riots.  If you think I’m wrong about that, you just haven’t been paying enough attention lately.

So, why are the Democrats, their media benefactors and their radical social action support groups so desperate, you ask?  Well, isn’t it obvious?  Let’s go through a bullet list:

  • They spent 8 long years utterly corrupting every institution of our society, often engaging in criminal activity in the process.  They got away with it because 98% of the national news media helped them cover it up;
  • They assumed – were absolutely certain – that all of that would be swept under the rug and they would be able to continue corrupting our institutions and destroying our Republic for another 8 years when Hillary Clinton won the presidency in 2016;
  • And win Hillary would, because most every senior official in the Obama Administration – including Obama his own self – and a hardworking, dedicated cabal of loyal leftist FBI and DOJ officials were going to fix the damn election.  Yay, them!;
  • But, well, Hillary lost.  When that eventual outcome began to become crystal clear at about 9:00 ET on Election Night, they could see their whole world come crashing down around them;
  • It would have been one thing had the Pantsuit Princess lost to some establishment apparatchick like Jeb! Bush or John “Didja know my father was a postman?” Kasich – they would have been fine in that event because another Bush or a Kasich would have just gone about being kinder and gentler and helping them sweep all their crimes under that gigantic swamp rug and nobody out here in Flyover Country would have been any the wiser;
  • But no, the Fainting Felon didn’t lose to just anyone – she lost to Donald Freakin’ Trump, the one Republican out of 17 initial candidates who would actually come into the office and go about exposing their crimes, firing the perps, and ultimately prosecuting them;
  • So, utter, complete and total panic set in, and the American left lost what little collective mind it had left.  Violent demonstrations organized by groups funded by Soros and a handful of leftwing foundations began popping up all over the country, featuring a bunch of black-robed mask-wearing thugs that called themselves “Antifa”;
  • Members of the Clinton Campaign – including the Coughing Crook herself – immediately began promoting their “Russia Collusion” fantasy as the reason for their utter failure, and a well-coordinated fake news media campaign cranked up in support;
  • Meanwhile, the FBI/DOJ cabal and senior Obama officials transitioned their failed effort to fix the election into an effort frame Trump officials like General Mike Flynn for crimes they did not commit, and to entrap the incoming POTUS himself into committing some act that a special counsel might be able to dummy up into an obstruction of justice charge;
  • The Democrat/fake media complex also embarked on a withering, never-ending campaign to impugn the President’s character in a desperate effort to drive his public approval ratings down into the 20s in the hopes he would resign or, barring that, be impeached as he lost the support of congressional Republicans;
  • But the President did not resign, and his average poll ratings never fell below 40.  Instead, he went about reversing almost the entire Obama 8 years of policy, creating a massive renaissance of the U.S. economy, destroyed ISIS in about 5 minutes – infuriating all Obama loyalists and John McCain – and initiating a de-nuclearization process with North Korea that may well win him a Nobel Peace Prize that he couldn’t care less about;
  • Still, the Democrat/fake media complex carried on.  As recently as 7 months ago, the Democrats and their propaganda team were walking around in a state of glee as congressional preference polls showed their team with a big lead, leading to the narrative that the 2018 mid-term elections would bring about a great “Blue Wave” that would sweep Democrat majorities into both houses of congress, giving them control of the congressional committees that have been revealing so much of their wrongdoing.  It wasn’t too late to sweep everything under the rug – who would be able to stop them?;
  • But now the polls have turned sour for them.  President Trump is now at his all-time high standing in even several of the fake leftwing polls, and their edge in the congressional preference polling has all but disappeared;
  • They had to create a new issue, and the best they could land on is to portray President Trump and anyone who supports him as “Nazis” for basically enforcing immigration laws that have been on the books for decades.

This issue won’t work for them either, because the average American isn’t quite as stupid as Democrats and fake journalists always assume they are.  In the meantime, the last two days of testimony by DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz and the ongoing revelations surrounding it show them that the IG’s report on the FBI’s fake investigation into the Clinton email scandal wasn’t an end game, but the start of a process that will ultimately expose the entirety of their Obama-era scheming.

These people now realize they are aboard the political version of the HMS Titanic, and the first Horowitz report was just the tip of a vast iceberg that is floating inexorably in their direction.

Of course they’re panicked.  You would be too.

Just another day in it’s all going to come out in the end America.

That is all.

You Want a New FBI Director? How About Michael Horowitz?

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Yes, because remember how much she did for Haiti.  Wait, what?  – In keeping with her life-long belief that there’s a sucker born every minute, the Pantsuit Princess has decided to use the media-generated fake border crisis as a fundraiser.  Yes, even though she isn’t technically running for anything right now, the Grasping Grifter, even at her advanced age, just cannot let a good fake crisis go to waste.

So she sent out a fundraising email yesterday to all of her millions of dimwit supporters, urging them to send her money to her new political organization, Onward Together, so these morons can think they are “doing something” by purchasing the Fainting Felon a new Lamborghini or whatever she plans to do with this latest batch of ill-gotten gain.  Because, hey, there really is a sucker born every minute, and they all voted for the Coughing Crook in 2016.

Here’s what the fake border crisis is really all about. – It’s not about soulless leftist ghouls who support Planned Parenthood’s trafficking in baby body parts suddenly caring about children, it’s not about the Trump Administration’s ‘zero tolerance’ policy, it’s not about wanting to keep families together or any of the nonsense First Lady Laura Bush included in her disgraceful op/ed in the WaPo yesterday (Japanese internment camps?  Really, Laura?  Who talked you into putting your name to that line of abject BS?).  Those are just the well-coordinated talking points on the matter agreed to by the Democrat Party and their propaganda agents in the national news media.

This is about what immigration fights are always about:  The Democrats want to turn our nation into just another third world country filled with people dependent on the government, and they believe the best way to do that is to flood the southern border with immigrants from third world countries.  This current effort is an attempt to destroy the rules that govern legitimate requests for asylum.  Those rules currently apply only to very specific life-threatening situations:  Democrats want to expand those rules so that they essentially will allow anyone in for any reason, including – you guessed it – poverty.

Think about it:  almost all of the people currently being held in these migrant centers are from central America.  They traveled well over 1,000 miles in an arduous journey through Mexico where, if they really needed asylum from a life-threatening situation, they could have sought asylum.

Did any of them do that?  No.  Why?  Because they don’t want asylum in Mexico, they want to live in America, where the government doles out benefits like no one actually has to ulimately pay for them.  Before they left their home countries, most of these “refugees” have in fact been trained by American social justice warriors on exactly what fake story to tell when they reach the U.S. in order to gain entry, an effort that began about half a decade ago during – you guessed it – the Obama Administration.

President Trump says that isn’t going to happen, “Not on my watch,” and more than 500 days into his presidency he has given us no reason not to believe he means it.  But there are a whole bunch of weak-kneed establishment Republicans up on Capitol Hill who will sell you all out in a heartbeat for any legislation that “solves” this issue.  So, you’d best all get on the phone and warn your congressman or woman to think twice.  Trust me, some of them really need the warning.

 

Meanwhile, up on Capitol Hill, DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz and feckless FBI Director Christopher Wray testified before the Senate Judiciary Committee about the IG’s report issued last Thursday, which covered the FBI’s fake 2016 investigation into the Pantsuit Princess’s email scandal.

As I predicted in yesterday’s Campaign Update, Wray was his typical dissembling self, reciting careful talking points written for him by other people to recite, deflecting, refusing to answer on false grounds and just generally looking like the small and ineffective man he obviously is.  His smallness and ineffectiveness were only amplified by having to sit next to Horowitz, who, even with one hand obviously tied behind his back by Rod Rosenstein, was as forthcoming as he could be and did his best to provide the Committee with as much information as he possibly could.

The session began with Chairman Chuck Grassley tossing out the first bombshell, detailing the fact that he had also invited former FBI Director and current teenage drama queen James Comey to testify, and that Comey’s lawyer had sent back a decline letter in which he stated Comey, if forced to testify, would exercise his 5th amendment right against self-incrimination.  This huge news was of course studiously ignored by the fake national news media.

Horowitz stuck with the obviously dictated talking point that he didn’t find “documentary evidence” that the blatant political bias exposed on the part of FBI Super Duper Agent Peter Strzok, ex-FBI lawyer Lisa Page, ex-FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe and Comey himself influenced the conduct of the fake investigation, but no one was buying it.  And, despite that absurd protestation, Horowitz did manage to sprinkle in details of all manner of obvious bias throughout his answers to the pointed questions coming from some of the committee members, including Lindsey Graham, John Kennedy and Ted Cruz, in addition to Grassley himself.

In addition to those details, Horowitz also laid out two big pieces of new information that were not included in his report:

  • He informed the committee that the Teenage Drama Queen himself is actually the subject of a current, ongoing investigation into his mishandling of classified documents; and
  • He confirmed the existence of a federal grand jury looking into all of this, which is most likely associated with U.S. Attorney John Huber’s ongoing investigation into all of the FBI/DOJ’s 2016 efforts to fix the election.

Many, including me, have long suspected that Huber must have at least one and possibly multiple grand juries convened for months now, but before yesterday, no one at DOJ had confirmed that likelihood.

Horowitz will testify again today, this time before the House Judiciary Committee chaired by Bob Goodlatte.  The membership of that committee includes bulldogs like Jim Jordan, Trey Gowdy, Matt Gaetz and Ron DeSantis, so expect some real fireworks from today’s session.

Interestingly, our useless FBI Director will not be accompanying Horowitz in today’s testimony.  Which only further raises the question:  Why is this guy in that job?  What good is he to anyone?  He’s nothing but a career bureaucrat, obviously in way over his head, and he has no intention of reforming anything.

Some have speculated that Wray is just a placeholder who will be replaced by a more effective, reform-minded leader when all the dust has settled from these investigations.  Trey Gowdy’s name has often come up as a possible replacement, given his background as a prosecutor before he ran for congress.  Gowdy in fact almost appears to be angling for that eventuality, given his always equivocal public statements regarding the FBI and its “stellar” “rank and file.”

I have a better idea:  How about making Horowitz Director of the FBI when all of the investigations are done?  You want a reformer, how about the guy who knows where all the agency’s bad actors and bodies are buried better than anyone else?  You want someone who knows how to manage?  This guy has been managing a gigantic staff conducting dozens of simultaneous investigations for a decade now.  You want someone who isn’t shy about bucking the system and isn’t squeamish about fighting higher-ups?  Horowitz has been doing that his entire career.

It’ll probably never happen, but after yesterday, it sure seems like a heck of a good idea.  Just throwing it out there.

Just another day in the drama never ends America.

That is all.

The Horowitz and Wray Show Comes to Capitol Hill

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Happy Father’s Day!  – Pretending to suddenly be concerned about the children of illegal aliens who have illegally crossed into the United States, social justice warriors took to social media on Saturday in outrage that many Americans would be celebrating Father’s day on Sunday.  I celebrated Father’s Day with my family anyway, and even worse, cooked delicious, juicy animal meat in the form of beef and chicken fajitas for my wifey, children and grandchildren to consume.  They loved me for it.  So there.

San Fran Nan is outraged, too. – Doddering old Nancy Pelosi, who after a lifetime of supposed “public service” can somehow afford to live in a multi-million dollar home protected by a wall in one of the priciest neighborhoods in San Francisco, and who owns several other homes to boot, attacked “people of faith” on Sunday for not caring about the plight of illegal aliens.  You can be sure that Ms. Pelosi, who claims to be a practicing Catholic, won’t be selling any of her homes to raise money to support these immigrants, or tear down her property’s wall to set a good example for the rest of the country.  Because, well, liberals.

Big Drama coming this week on multiple fronts. – Today and tomorrow, DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz and FBI Director Christopher Wray will go to capitol hill to offer testimony about the report he released last Thursday on the FBI’s fake investigation into the Clinton email scandal during 2016.  Horowitz and Wray will testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee today and before the House Judiciary Committee on Tuesday.

We can expect Director Wray to deflect, dissemble, refuse to answer based on false claims of “protecting sources” or other classic dodges used by FBI Directors in such situations, because he has clearly demonstrated he is just another feckless bureaucrat whose main goal is not the revelation of the truth, but the covering of his and his utterly corrupt department’s ass. That’s what we saw from him in his god-awful press conference last Thursday following the report’s release, and there is no reason whatsoever to expect anything different from him today or tomorrow.

Horowitz, however, is a different matter entirely.  Unlike Wray, he is not a guy with a history of obfuscating and deflecting in this kind of setting.  In his past testimonies to congress he has pretty much always been blunt and clear in answering questions posed to him.

What will be interesting to see with Horowitz will be to observe whether he bases his testimony on what was written – most likely by Wray, Rod Rosenstein and others – in the Executive Summary to his report, or if he bases his testimony on what is contained in the actual body of the report.  Because while the Executive Summary claims his report finds “no documentary evidence” that political bias influenced the fake investigation, the body of the report details all manner of not just bias, but outright hostility towards Donald Trump influencing pretty much every decision made in the conduct of what really amounted to a cover-up operation favoring the Pantsuit Princess.

And where the Executive Summary to the report claims to have revealed no criminal wrongdoing on the part of anyone at the FBI, the body of the report details all sorts of criminal actions, including the taking of bribes and leaking of classified information on the part of multiple bad actors within the FBI.  Thus, which part of the report Horowitz chooses to reference in his answers to questions from Republican members of these committees – the Democrat members will all just do what they can to continue to support the cover-up – will be key.  Horowitz has a history of trying to do the right thing in the face of obstruction and blow-back from his superiors within DOJ.  We can only hope that continues to be the case.

The other bit of drama we may finally, at long last see this week will be some real pushback from the GOP leadership in the House of Representatives over the DOJ’s and FBI’s ongoing refusal to comply with perfectly valid and legal requests by several committees for documents.  Speaker Paul Ryan is finally personally engaging in the controversy, having attended a Friday night meeting in which he, Devin Nunes, Trey Gowdy and Bob Goodlatte (chairmen of House Oversight, Intelligence and Judiciary committees, respectively) met with Wray and Rosenstien to hammer out a final deal on provision of said documents.

The group is supposed to meet again today, after which DOJ supposedly has promised compliance of some sort.  Nunes and Gowdy were both very plain-spoken in media interviews on the matter Sunday:

From Nunes:  “My patience  has run out. I believe that they have leaked — they created massive leaks. We know that from the I.G. Report. Inspector Horowitz showed us these major, major gaffes…here’s the bottom line.  Mr. Rosenstein, the deputy attorney general, and Director Wray have to decide whether or not they want to be part of the cleanup crew or they want to be part of the cover-up crew.  That’s really the decision that they have to make for themselves here. The best way they can be part of the cleanup of this mess is give us all the documents this week, so that we can put this behind us and let the American people begin to heal.”

From Gowdy:  “Paul Ryan led this meeting… And Paul made it very clear; there’s going to be action on the floor of the House this week if the FBI and DOJ do not comply with our subpoena request.  So Rod Rosenstein, Chris Wray you were in the meeting, you understood him just as clearly as I did. We’re going to get compliance or the House of Representatives is going to use its full arsenal of constitutional weapons to gain compliance.”

This all, of course, comes on the heels of a very rancorous meeting between most of these same principles last week, during which the perpetually oily and abusive Rosenstein actually threatened to subpoena the phone and email records of the members of congress and their staff in retaliation for conducting their constitutional oversight duties.  So it’s pretty easy to see why everyone’s nerves would be on end over this situation.

Of course, the problem these committee chairmen have is that congress’s power in this situation is fairly limited.  Our constitutional balance of powers envision that patriotic, competent and loyal people will be appointed to these high positions within the Department of Justice.  We know today that that was definitely not what happened in the Barack Obama Administration, and the jury is just barely still out on Wray, Rosenstein and Jeff Sessions.  Based on that assumption of good faith, the founding fathers did not give congress many powers to effectively combat a corrupted DOJ.

About the worst congress could do in this situation would be to initiate impeachment proceedings against Rosenstein and Wray, something Nunes and Goodlatte have threatened to do in the past.  But if these guys are corrupt enough to engage in this stonewalling operation for over a year now, and they know that there is not a single Senate Democrat honest enough to vote to remove them from office, what do they care?

So there will be drama, because we can be sure DOJ and the FBI are not going to comply with these latest congressional demands, but at the end of the day it will almost certainly end up being a lot of sound and fury that ends up signifying nothing.

Just another day in the drama never ends America.

That is all.
