On This Earth Day, Thank Mother Earth for the Gift of Fossil Fuels

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Today is Earth Day, and it is the perfect time to celebrate the natural resources like oil, natural gas and coal, which are gifts to humanity from Mother Earth herself.  These indispensable drivers of modern society will no doubt be demonized today amid all the frightful doom and gloom predictions that will be launched by environmental activists and repeated by various media outlets.

All the vitriol directed at these fossil fuels by the environmental community notwithstanding, it is a simple fact that our prosperous, modern, energy-hungry society was made possible by the existence of these fuels.  Without the discovery of and ability to produce fossil fuels, it is likely that mankind would still be mired in a primitive form of existence, reliant on burning wood for heat, horses for transportation, and still living largely in the dark after nightfall.

Without the miracle of the petroleum-fueled internal combustion engine, there would be no automobiles – or primitive ones at best – dirigibles would probably still be our main mode of air transportation, there would have been no space program to drive all the technological advancement of the second half of the 20th century.  Without those things, there would be no high tech industry to speak of, no Internet, and thus no ability to read what I’m writing here.

But what about wind, solar and nuclear?  The production of modern wind turbines, solar panels and nuclear power plants is extremely energy-intensive enterprises, and is by and large powered by the burning of fossil fuels.  In other words, without the massive energy levels generated by the fossil fuel chicken, the “green” energy eggs would not have been possible.  Few of those gigantic wind turbines you see dotting landscapes across America will, in their entire useful lifetime, generate as much power as was required to fabricate them, transport them to their locations, and erect them.

And on this particular day we should all be doubly thankful for the recent discovery of the means – hydraulic fracturing, combined with horizontal drilling – of producing oil and natural gas from shale rock formations.  Because while Europe continues to struggle with failing “cap and trade” carbon trading schemes that haven’t reduced that continent’s greenhouse gas emissions, those same emissions have been reduced in the US to pre-1994 levels through increased use of natural gas in the power generation sector.  Thus, while radicals in the “green” community have done everything they can to turn “fracking” into their cause du jour for limiting or banning, the product of their boogeyman has done more to clean the air through the free market than any of the myriad command and control regulations issued by the Environmental Protection Agency.

So on this 49th celebration of Earth Day, let’s all try to remember that one of the greatest gifts Mother Earth has ever given us is the fossil fuels that make such worldwide celebrations possible.

Meanwhile, as you will no doubt be assaulted all day today with all manner of frightful scenarios about our future environmental challenges, you might find it edifying to review similar pronouncements made by the environmental luminaries of the day at the inaugural Earth Day celebration:

“Demographers agree almost unanimously on the following grim timetable: by 1975 widespread famines will begin in India; these will spread by 1990 to include all of India, PakistanChina and the Near East, Africa. By the year 2000, or conceivably sooner, South and Central America will exist under famine conditions….By the year 2000, thirty years from now, the entire world, with the exception of Western Europe, North America, and Australia, will be in famine.” – Peter Gunter, professor, North Texas State University

“It is already too late to avoid mass starvation.”  – Denis Hayes, chief organizer for Earth Day

“Population will inevitably and completely outstrip whatever small increases in food supplies we make. The death rate will increase until at least 100-200 million people per year will be starving to death during the next ten years.” — Stanford University biologist Paul Ehrlich

“Most of the people who are going to die in the greatest cataclysm in the history of man have already been born… [By 1975] some experts feel that food shortages will have escalated the present level of world hunger and starvation into famines of unbelievable proportions. Other experts, more optimistic, think the ultimate food-population collision will not occur until the decade of the 1980s.” — Paul Ehrlich

And my very favorite of them all:

“By the year 2000, if present trends continue, we will be using up crude oil at such a rate…that there won’t be any more crude oil. You’ll drive up to the pump and say, `Fill ‘er up, buddy,’ and he’ll say, `I am very sorry, there isn’t any.’” – Kenneth Watt, Ecologist

Have a great Earth Day today.

Just another day in fossil-fueled America.

That is all.

Your Fake News Media in Action!

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Hey, let’s do that with Obamacare, too! – Chuckie Schumer announced on Friday that he’s introducing a bill that would essentially rescind federal marijuana laws because, he claims, he is such a huge believer in the concept of federalism that he thinks we should just let the states decide on whether pot should be legal or not.  This marks the first issue in his long political career on which the old collectivist expressed a fealty to federalism.

Talking Points Parrot for Senate! – Just minutes after Schumer had held his press conference, Texas senate candidate Irish Beto O’Rourke took to his Twitter feed to join in the fun:

So, there you go, Texans – you have a choice of re-electing Ted Cruz or replacing him with a guy who will loyally do or say whatever Chuck Schumer wants him to do or say for the next six years.  This really shouldn’t be hard.

Your Fake News Media In Action! – At mid-day Friday, the Justice Department announced the bombshell story that Inspector General Michael Horowitz is investigating drama queen ex-FBI Director James Comey for potential violations of the Espionage Act.  So I thought I’d go to Politico.com to see what that political news outlet of record for the Inside-the-Beltway set had to say about this huge story.

The answer, as of 6:43 a.m. Central Time this morning is…nothing.  Wait, can that be right?  Let me go through all the stories on the landing page – there are dozens of them – again.  Hold on….

Ok, yeah, that’s right.  Not a word.  Politico does have front page headlines about EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt’s apartment, one about a half-century-ago affair between Fidel Castro and some ABC reporter, a typically slanted “analysis” of a bunch of fake “conflicts” Rudy Giuliani brings to his new role on the Trump defense team, and an ultra-critical story about what some liberal fake journalist hack thinks Melania Trump can learn from the late Barbara Bush.

But not a peep about the stood-up homecoming queen ex-FBI Director being investigated for violations of the nation’s Espionage Act.

Holy cow.

Your Fake News Media in Action!  Part II – CNN’s Chief Political Analyst, Gloria Borger, is no doubt on thin ice at the fakest of all the fake news outlets this morning after she made the enormous error of actually speaking truthfully about the absurd lawsuit filed by the DNC on Friday.  When asked how she would classify the suit by fake host Brooke Baldwin, Borger called it a “100 percent stunt”.  Here’s the exchange:

“How much of this do you think is just a stunt versus a pretty smart ploy for the court of public opinion?” Brooke Baldwin asked political analyst Gloria Borger.

“A 100 percent stunt, 100 percent,” Borger responded. “They want to get in the act, obviously. They want to keep the story moving. This is nothing new.”

Note how Baldwin attempted to get Borger to the “right” answer in the view of CNN’s management and the Democrat Party with her “pretty smart ploy” lead-in.  But Borger slipped up, and now CNN – which is no doubt intent upon focusing on this fake story for the entire weekend in order to avoid having to report on all the bad-for-Democrats stories related to Comey, Andrew McCabe and the flailing Mueller investigation – is stuck trying to find a way to rationalize the moment of inadvertent honesty by its vaunted el jefe Political Analyst.  Good luck with that, guys and gals.

Your Fake News Media in Action!  Part III – Oh, hey, the Crazy Little Fat Guy in North Korea announced on Friday that he is suspending his missile testing program and completely closing down his main missile test site in advance of his anticipated meeting with President Trump next month.  CNN, MSNBC, the WaPo and the NYTimes will spend all weekend twisting themselves into pretzels trying to rationalize how to deny Mr. Trump any credit for this happy turn of events.  Good luck with that one, too.

Your Fake News Media in Action!  Part IV – Finally, since no one at any of the fake news media outlets is honest enough to report it, President Donald Trump (I never tire of typing those three words) took to his Twitter feed late Friday night to point out a key fact related to the Comey memos that were released this week, 8 of 15 pages of which contained redactions marked “classified”:

Yes, some of us know what it means.  But you’ll never get anyone in the fake news media to acknowledge that reality.  Nice try, though.

 

Just another day in fake news media America.

About that DNC Lawsuit…

The Evening Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

…don’t expect anything to really come of it.

In fact, you should expect it to occupy most of the fake news media attention over this weekend, quickly fade from view starting on Monday, and be withdrawn entirely within a few weeks.

The DNC did not make a legal move today by filing that lawsuit, it made a political move.  Democrats were getting crushed by the back-firing of the James Comey teen angst tour, the IG’s criminal referral on Andrew McCabe, and the news that the IG had opened a new investigation into Comey and the likelihood he illegally leaked classified information to the New York Times in the memos he fed to that fake newspaper through an intermediary.

On top of all of that, President Trump’s polling numbers this week are coming in at their highest point since his inauguration, and the Democrat edge in generic congressional polling data continues to narrow.

In light of all this terrible news, the Democrats had to take some action in advance of the weekend or have all this negativity dominate the Sunday talk shows.  So, they got the nitwits who run the DNC to file this lawsuit in order to give all of their willing dupes in the fake news media something else to obsess over throughout the weekend.

Yes, the DNC is so dead broke it couldn’t pay lawyers to run with this lawsuit if it wanted to, but think about it from their perspective:  This lawsuit gives all of the Democrat press agents in the fake media an excuse to spend the entire weekend doing nothing but re-hashing all of their fantasy theories about the Trump campaign “colluding” with Russia.

So, from a political perspective, it’s really brilliant, even if it is a complete non-starter from a legal perspective.

Seriously, the DNC could never even think about letting this “lawsuit” actually make its way into a courtroom, simply because of what they’d have to surrender in the discovery process.  The central claim in the suit is the demonstrably false claim that “Russia” hacked the DNC computer server and fed thousands of DNC emails to WikiLeaks.

Ok, so, the first thing the defendants do is subpoena the DNC computer server as part of the discovery process.  The second thing that happens is that President Trump pardons Julian Assange, who would then be free to travel to the U.S. and provide his proof that the emails WikiLeaks obtained were provided not by anyone from Russia, but by murdered DNC staffer Seth Rich.

Does anyone really think the DNC is going to voluntarily reopen that particular can of worms?  Well, ok, DNC Chairman Tom Perez is a raging Marxist moron, but he presumably has someone on staff who might point out these realities to him.

And really, that’s just for starters.  After all, the DNC fixed its own primary process in order to ensure the Pantsuit Princess would win its nomination.  It then paid millions of dollars to agents of foreign countries – including Russia – to dummy up the fake Trump Dossier, which it then used in an attempt to fix the general election.  These are all matters of public record at this point.

No, this was not a legal move today, and this is a lawsuit that will quietly go away in very short order.  This was a political move designed to give the fake hosts of the Sunday morning talk shows a shiny object to chase.  And trust me, with the possible exception of Chris Wallace at Fox News, all the fake hosts will thrilled to death to play along.

Because that’s what the fake news media does for its benefactors in the Democrat Party.

That is all.

Some Men Just Need Firing, and Rod Rosenstein is That Man

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Thursday was like last Friday, another one of those 5 news cycle days…

– Congressional criminal referrals against McCabe, Comey, Lynch and the Pantsuit Princess;

– The James Comey teen angst tour continues;

– The DOJ Inspector General issues a criminal referral on McCabe;

– Trump hires Rudy Giuliani to “help negotiate an end to the Mueller investigation,” according to Rudy;

– DOJ releases the vaunted “Comey memos” to congress, they immediately leak to the press.

..and that all happened by 5:15 Eastern Time.  Holy cow.

The Campaign Update covered both the Congressional and IG criminal referrals here and here, and we are sick to freakin’ death of talking about the drama queen ex-FBI Director’s teen angst tour, so let’s focus on those last two items this morning, because they are very crucial in everything that is going on.

First, the release of the Comey memos, those precious little tomes that the preening then-FBI Director claims he felt a pressing need to write in order to memorialize this interactions with the new President of the United States.  If you want to read them, just go Google “Comey memos” and trust me, you’ll get several million hits – the things are all over the place this morning, after having been held back by a stonewalling FBI and DOJ for the last year.

Here is the crucial thing to remember about these memos as you read them:  Both Comey and the oily Rod Rosenstein admit that what is in these memos formed Rosenstein’s justification for appointing Robert Mueller as Special Counsel.  Both of them have not only admitted this, they both have done so under oath in testimony before congressional committees.

Here is why that is important:  There is literally nothing in these memos that indicates even a smidgen of wrongdoing by President Donald Trump.  No indication – by Comey’s own admission – of obstruction of justice and no indication of any “collusion” with anyone from Russia.  No indication of any corruption, obstruction or unethical behavior by Mr. Trump whatsoever.

Congressman Trey Gowdy – himself a former prosecutor – as Chairman of the House Oversight Committee, has been aware of what the memos contain for many months now, and he has spent those many months telling anyone who asked that the memos not only do not damage President Trump, they would actually be used as “Exhibit A by the defense” to clear Trump of any wrongdoing.  It turns out that Congressman Gowdy was 100% correct in that assessment.

What these memos do show beyond any doubt at all is that Rosenstein, as the man who appointed Mueller, has perpetrated one of the most massive frauds on the American public in history, and that Comey and Mueller have been accessories to that fraud.  In a just world, Rosenstein would be fired before this day is out, and a special counsel would be assigned to prosecute them for all the perjuries and other crimes they have committed in this endeavor.

But obviously it is not a just world, so Rosenstein will be allowed to slither on through his daily duties of absolutely refusing to supervise Mueller in any way, Comey will be allowed to continue his teen angst book tour, and Mueller will be allowed to continue his assault on the 1st, 2nd, 4th and 6th amendments to the Constitution.

Well, until, that is, Rudy Giuliani – America’s Mayor! – rides in on his white horse and “negotiates an end to the Mueller investigation,” as he put it himself.  If your initial reaction to that bit of news is to think, “What the hell?  Why should President Trump have to negotiate anything in this situation?”, well, join the crowd.

But here we are.  Rosenstein refuses to do his job, Mueller’s sitting there holding such a huge bag of nothing that many in the anti-Trump media speculated that he conducted his jack-booted raid on Michael Cohen in a desperate effort to get Trump to fire him, and the President is understandably quite anxious to put an end to the massive fraud that has thus far haunted his entire presidency.

The things to remember about Giuliani that are very pertinent to this matter are:

  • He’s a former U.S. Attorney himself, and knows how the processes within DOJ work;
  • He’s extremely adept at exercising leverage to get the things he wants to do done, which is what made him such an extremely successful mayor of New York City;
  • Perhaps most importantly, he has direct knowledge of evidence of criminal conduct by Hillary Clinton that was buried by Clinton cronies at the New York P0lice Department and New York City FBI Field Office. Think 600,000 Clinton emails showing up on Anthony Weiner’s laptop.

So he has tons of leverage to exercise in a negotiation with Mueller, whose “investigation” is as much about protecting the Pantsuit Princess and his best buddy Comey as it is about anything else.  Mueller desperately wants to save face by snagging an interview with the President before closing up his shop, something the President should avoid at all costs, given that any interview with Mueller would be set up solely to try to catch Mr. Trump in some perjury trap.

Giuliani’s job will be to convince Mueller it is in his interests to let the thought of any interview with the President go.  Can’t think of anyone better to take on this assignment.

Just another day in Rod Rosenstein needs firing America.

That is all.

Jeff Sessions Just Ran Out of Cover in the Andrew McCabe Case

The Evening Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Well, now we know why Andrew McCabe needed that half million dollar legal defense fund.  The fired ex-Deputy Director of the FBI is really on a roll when it comes to having criminal referrals filed against him:  Yesterday, he gets one from 11 members of the U.S. House of Representatives, and today he gets one lobbed out in his direction by Department of Justice Inspector General Michael Horowitz.

Bang!  Boom!  Pow!  It’s like he’s playing a bad guy in an episode of the 1960s TV version of Batman.

The IG’s referral is of course a follow-up to the release of his report last Friday which summarized the findings from his investigation into McCabe’s conduct, which showed that the deep state FBI guy had a serial “lack of candor,” i.e., he’s an habitual liar.

In truth, as I detailed in this morning’s Campaign Update, the referral from 11 Republican congresspersons carries little weight, and really covers ground Attorney General Jeff Sessions has already claimed to be covering.  But the referral from the IG is more crucial here, because it now leaves Sessions completely exposed, lacking any further excuse for delaying moving forward with prosecuting the guy who was one of the ring leaders of the anti-Trump deep state cabal that operated within the FBI and DOJ throughout 2016 and well into 2017.

Sessions has said all along that he has just been awaiting the IG’s report before determining whether prosecutions of anyone are really warranted in these matters.  Now, the IG has not just issued a report specific to one of the bad actors, he has quickly followed up with a criminal referral.  While that referral is directed to the U.S. Attorney who oversees the Washington, D.C. office for DOJ, that U.S. Attorney works for Jeff Sessions, and his actions are Sessions’ responsibility.

A referral from the IG does not necessarily mean that charges will be brought in the case – that decision falls to the DOJ and a grand jury.  But the IG has already presented an airtight case in a very public way, so if Sessions and his U.S. attorney fail to bring charges, they’ll need a very strong explanation why General Mike Flynn, a legitimate American hero who has spent his entire adult life defending this country, gets perp walked and indicted in a massive rush to judgment, but a deep state skunk like McCabe gets a walk after a painstaking investigation that dragged on for many months.

The other thing the IG’s action today accomplishes is to give us a preview of what to expect in May, when he will issue his findings from his more comprehensive, 15-month investigation into the massive wrongdoings by a variety of FBI and DOJ officials, as well as Hillary Clinton.  It should be fairly safe to assume the general process will be the same – first, the report, then a series of criminal referrals to DOJ.

And then the buck stops again right smack in the middle of Jeff Sessions’ desk.  Personally, I think that’s exactly where Sessions wants it.  But if I’m wrong in the assumption of Sessions’ good faith, he’s about to run out of anywhere else to pass that buck.

That is all.

In Three Weeks, America Will Find Out Who Jeff Sessions Really Is

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Florida Republican Congressman Ron DeSantis, along with 10 other GOP members of the House, sent a letter to Attorney General Jeff Sessions and FBI Director Christopher Wray on Wednesday, detailing formal criminal referrals against James Comey, Hillary Clinton, Loretta Lynch and Andrew McCabe.  While Sean Hannity and other conservative radio and TV talk show hosts played the letter up as if it is a momentous event, the truth is that it makes referrals that are already being acted upon by the Attorney General.

Sessions has already and repeatedly made it clear that he will act on these referrals and other potential criminal activity by former Obama officials after DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz issues his final report detailing the findings from his 15 month-long investigation into potential criminal wrongdoing by deep state DOJ and FBI personnel during the 2016 election campaign.  That investigation also covers the FBI/DOJ handling of its sham investigation into the Clinton email scandal, and thus impacts every one of the Obama-era officials named in the DeSantis letter.

Here are some things we already know about all of this:

  • We know that the referral on McCabe is redundant at best, since it is related to the same claims of criminal wrongdoing that got McCabe fired in the first place, and the proof of which were detailed in the report issued by IG Horowitz specific to McCabe’s actions late last week.
  • We know without any doubt at all that the referral against the Pantsuit Princess, that she violated campaign finance law by failing to disclose the millions of dollars her campaign spent to fund the fake Trump Dossier, is valid and ought to be prosecuted by DOJ, if there is any such thing as equal treatment under the law in this country.
  • We know without any doubt at all that the referral against Comey, relating to his leaks of classified information contained in his memos to the New York Times is absolutely true, and ought to be prosecuted by DOJ.
  • We know without any doubt at all that the referral against Lynch, relating to her well-document threats of reprisal against a key witness in the Uranium One case, is absolutely valid and ought to be prosecuted by DOJ.
  • Finally, we know that Attorney General Sessions has appointed his U.S. Attorney in Salt Lake City, John Huber, to lead DOJ’s handling of all of these cases and more, and we know that Mr. Huber has been working on this assignment since at least last October, and possibly since July of last year.  We also know that he has had a grand jury convened for months now, and has been working in concert with IG Horowitz and his team of more than 700 investigators.

So what’s the point?  The point is that, while the DeSantis letter amounts to a bit of political grandstanding, it is not meaningless.  Every charge made in it is clearly valid, and the validity of every criminal act alleged in it is well-documented by now in the public record.

Sessions has been well aware of all of these things and much more for many months now.  He claims to have had Huber leading the DOJ charge to determine who will be prosecuted and on what charges.  Horowitz has informed congress that he plans to issue his final report in May, and is in fact scheduled to offer testimony related to that report before Trey Gowdy and the House Oversight Committee on May 8.  That would indicate that Gowdy has information that the Horowitz report will have been issued by that time.

May 8 is about three weeks from today.  Assuming all goes as scheduled, we will by that time finally have a clear answer to the question of whether Mr. Sessions is a real attorney general who is truly intent upon restoring the rule of law in this country after the previous eight years of abject corruption, or if he is just another deep state actor intent on preserving the status quo.

My bet is that we will find out that Mr. Sessions is a real attorney general, if only because the alternative is too horrible to contemplate.

Interestingly, when Mr. Horowitz offered testimony on unrelated matters before Gowdy’s committee on Wednesday, it was obvious that the ranking Democrat, Gerry Connelly, believes Horowitz’s report will be quite damaging to Democrats.  Connelly focused his questioning in a way that tried to portray Horowitz – who was hired into his job by Barack Obama – as a Republican partisan in an effort to start laying the groundwork for what will be the obvious initial Democrat/fake news media tactic after the IG’s report comes out.

Connelly thinks Sessions is a real attorney general, too.  If he didn’t, he wouldn’t feel the need to demonize Mr. Horowitz.  You should expect to see negative stories about Horowitz to start popping up in the various fake news media outlets in the coming days as well, as the fake journalists ramp up their demonization campaign in earnest.

Just another day in the Horowitz Report is coming America.

That is all.

Fresno State Prof. Randa Jarrar: Anatomy of a Self-Destructing Nitwit

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Tired of all this Winning yet?  – Within a couple of hours of the announcement that former First Lady Barbara Bush had died at the age of 92, Fresno State English professor Randa Jarrar issued a tweet celebrating the event:  “Barbara Bush was a generous and smart and amazing racist who, along with her husband, raised a war criminal.  F*** outta hear with your nice words.”

After she’d gotten pushback from other Twitter users, she followed that little ditty up with:

““PSA: either you are against these pieces of s— and their genocidal ways or you’re part of the problem. That’s actually how simple this is. I’m happy the witch is dead. Can’t wait for the rest of her family to fall to their demise the way 1.5 million Iraqis have.”

Unable to leave bad enough alone, she felt compelled to add this taunt:

“I work as a tenured professor. I make 100K a year doing that. I will never be fired. I will always have people wanting to hear what I have to say.”

Within an hour after that missive, her tweets had been deleted, and her Twitter account was locked.

That was all last night.  This morning, Fresno State President Joseph Castro issued the following statement about its tenured English professor:

A few minutes after that statement was issued, the profile description to Prof. Jarrar’s Twitter account was changed to read as follows:

“Currently on leave from Fresno State. this is my private account and represents my opinions.”

Perhaps she isn’t quite as bullet-proof as she thinks.

 

Just another day in self-destructing progressive nitwits America.

Trump and North Korea: Proof The Reagan Doctrine Works

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Barbara Bush, America’s matriarch, Rest In Peace.

Tired of all this Winning yet?  – It turns out that not everybody in California is crazy after all.  On Tuesday, the San Diego County board of supervisors became the latest local government to vote to support the Trump Administration’s lawsuit challenging the Golden State’s sanctuary state law.  The County joins neighboring Orange County and cities like San Juan Capistrano, Los Alamitos, Huntington Beach, Aliso Viejo, Mission Viejo and Escondido in opposing the state’s open borders law.

All of the cities and counties listed above are, of course, at the southern end of the state, and thus bear the brunt of the negative impacts of open borders policies advocated by Governor Jerry Brown and the state’s openly seditious Democrat Party.  Some may characterize these actions as futile gestures, but the intervention into lawsuits like this by impacted parties play a key role in the judicial process.  In this case, they show that there are still people in California who care about the good of the country as a whole, which is a very gratifying thing indeed.

When you appoint a true strict constructionist justice, you get strict constructionist decisions. – Many observers were surprised on Tuesday when the Supreme Court issued an immigration-related decision in which Trump appointee Neil Gorsuch sided with the four liberals on the court to deal the administration a setback.  The case revolved around how U.S. deportation law defines a violent crime for the purpose of deporting illegal immigrants to their home country.  Gorsuch joined the court’s liberal minority in ruling that the definition was overly vague and thus unenforceable under the Constitution.

Anyone who is surprised by his ruling should make themselves aware that, in 2015, the man Gorsuch replaced on the court, the late Antonin Scalia, ruled that similar language in a law imposing longer prison sentences on repeat offenders was also unconstitutional for the same reason.  Thus, while this decision by Gorsuch is inconvenient for the Trump administration, the fact that he ruled as he did should actually be encouraging to anyone who calls themselves a conservative.

Liberals opposed Gorsuch because they believed he would be a down-the-line strict constructionist, like Justice Scalia.  Turns out, they were right for once.

“In today’s news, North and South Korean end war, now back to rolling video of a porn star.” – Lost in all the fake news media frenzy over porn stars and Sean Hannity lawyers yesterday was the amazingly consequential announcement by South Korea leaders that they are meeting with the leaders of North Korea this week to change the 65 year-old armistice agreement between the two countries into the formal ending to the state of war between them.  After pretty much burying the story yesterday, the fake news media and Democrat paid liars will no doubt spend today trying to tell us all how Barack Obama somehow deserves credit for this amazing turn of events.

The truth, of course, is that everything Obama did related to the situation on the Korean peninsula during his 8 disastrous years in office simply made the situation worse, and this current easing of tensions there is purely President Trump’s doing.  Later in the day, the President also announced to the slack-jawed White House press corps of fake journalists that the administration was already engaged with North Korean emissaries in negotiations “at very high levels.”  Early this morning, the President tweeted that Secretary of State nominee Mike Pompeo had actually met with North Korea’s Crazy Little Fat Guy late last week, characterizing the meeting as having gone “very smoothly.”:

Obviously, we are still a long way from real denuclearization of the Korean peninsula, but there is real progress taking place in that direction, a progress that our three prior administrations spent a quarter of a century failing to advance.  There is no magic to any of this – what Trump has been doing with the Crazy Little Fat Guy is promoting the Reagan Doctrine of “Peace through strength.”  24 years of appeasement policies only emboldened and enabled the succession of three different Kim dictators to pursue their nuclear ambitions, pretty much with impunity.

Now that a leader of the United States has demonstrated clearly that this country is willing to confront not only North Korea, but also its benefactors in China on the matter, we see this sudden desire to engage in real negotiations.  Amazing how that works.  Well, amazing to liberals and fake journalists, anyway.

Just another day in appeasement never works America.

This is America, Where Fake News Reporting Now Wins Pulitzers

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Tired of all this Winning yet?  – Heads had to be exploding all over the fake mainstream news media on Monday, as President Trump hit 51% approval in the Rasmussen Survey and several other polls showed the President’s approval ticking upwards.  These results have to be maddening to all the fake reporters and editors who wake up every day intent on slanting their reporting against the current POTUS in their tireless efforts to reverse the outcome of the 2016 national election.

Even worse for the fake media and its masters at the Democrat National Committee, the new ABC/Washington Post survey shows the Democrat edge in the generic congressional preference category closing to just 4 percent, at 47/43.  This poll had that margin at 12 points in January.  Hey, maybe Robert Mueller’s assault on the right to attorney client privilege and the constitutional protection against unreasonable search and seizure isn’t such a great idea for the Democrats after all?  Just a thought.

Speaking of Mueller and his efforts to destroy every shred of attorney/client privilege in his desperation to dig up dirt on the President, the assault on former Trump attorney Michael Cohen made big news when the federal judge in the case, one Kimba Wood, forced the public revelation of Mr. Cohen’s three most recent clients, and it turned out that one of those clients happened to be Fox News and radio talk show host Sean Hannity.   The fake journalist Twitter-verse erupted with glee at the judge-ordered doxing of Hannity, who they all hate.  Hannity, for his part, said that it’s no big deal, and that he had never paid Cohen for any services, though if he had it is hard to see why that would be anyone’s business.

In any event, the actual big news in all of this to anyone who is not a fake reporter or fake editor is the name of that judge – Kimba Wood.  Those of us who, like me, are old enough to remember the early years of the Clinton Administration will remember that Judge Wood was Hillary Clinton’s hand-picked favorite to become Bill Clinton’s first nominee for Attorney General.  We will also remember that Ms. Wood’s potential nomination for the job fell apart when it was revealed that a) she had trained to be a Playboy bunny while in college, and b) she had once employed an illegal alien as a nanny and failed to properly report the wages she paid the nanny to the IRS.

To make things even more outrageous, it turns out that Judge Wood actually officiated at the 2013 wedding ceremony of the evil funder of all sorts of radical efforts to destroy American society, George Soros.

Yes, that Kimba Wood, the long-time buddy of Hillary Clinton and George Soros, is now presiding over the Michael Cohen case.  And all the fake reporters in your fake national news media look at that amazing situation and think “hey, that’s all perfectly normal.  Nothing to report there.”  Holy cow.

In other fake news, our drama queen former FBI Director can’t compete with a porn star for TV ratings.  James Comey’s Sunday night interview on ABC with a former Clinton toady drew only a little over 8 million viewers.  This compares to the 24 million who tuned in to see porn star Stormy Daniels get the softball treatment from Gloria Vanderbilt’s son on CBS.  Which proves, I guess, that in today’s America, a 6’8″ drama queen is only worth a third of the value of a porn star.  Or maybe Anderson Cooper is just that much better looking than George Stephanopoulous.

Finally, in the ultimate expression of the new legitimacy of fake news, the fake staffs at the New York Times and the Washington Post shared the Pulitzer Prize (because, hey, these are mostly Millennials and thus, everyone must go home with a trophy) in the “National Reporting” category for their coverage of “Russian meddling in the 2016 elections.”  Think about this for second:  Both the Times and the Post have been forced to rescind or massively correct dozens of fake stories about what is mostly a fantasy made up out of whole cloth by the Clinton campaign in the wake of its stinging defeat by Donald Trump.

It is fake news at its finest, a media-supported fantasy play that has a completely out-of-control Special Counsel running around the country destroying some of our most crucial constitutional protections, and the Pulitzer Committee is celebrating the two fake newspapers that have played the biggest roles in helping to perpetuate it.  If you’re an American citizen, the members of the Pulitzer Committee just gave you the finger.

Just another day in everything is fake in today’s America.

That is all.
