So You’ve Screwed Up Your Life? Blame Trump!

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

  • Is it just me, or does it seem like everybody – and I do mean everybody – who has done something to screw up their life in any way, shape or form has taken to blaming President Donald J. Trump as a coping mechanism for their own failures?  Think about it.
  • Take Harvey Weinstein as an example – what was this repugnant tub of goo’s first instinct when the NYTimes published its expose’ on his quarter century of abusing women?  If you remember, he thought he could innoculate himself from any fallout from his 100% leftwing Hollywood peers by taking a leave of absence from his company so he could dedicate himself to fighting the NRA (virtue signal related to the Las Vegas massacre that had taken place six days earlier) and …wait for it…Donald Trump!
  • But – oops! – it turns out that promising to go around playing the “Blame Trump” card doesn’t inoculate you against 25 years of soiling potted plants and blackmailing ambitious young ingenues into having sex with you in exchange for movie roles.  It turns out that even Hollywood has some standards, and who could have ever guessed that?
  • Then there’s Bowe Bergdahl, that traitorous Army deserter who Barack Obama and Susan Rice consider to be a great American “hero”.  Obama thought so highly of Bergdahl that he was willing to trade five terrorist scum in order to get this “hero”  – who had cost six truly brave American soldiers their lives as they searched Afghanistan trying to find him – released by the Taliban.  After pleading guilty to desertion in his court martial, Bergdahl said he was doing so because he felt he could not get a fair trial due to things said by …wait for it… Donald Trump!  Yeah, none of it’s your fault, bud.
  • NFL Football players and owners – The pre-game protests by NFL players of the flag and national anthem went on for well over a year without a word about it coming from the very busy mouth of candidate Trump or President Trump.  NFL ratings were tanking and game attendance dying throughout the 2016 season as a result, and that tanking continued into the 2017 season before the President had anything to say about it.  But when the President decided to go off on these players and owners and commissioner Roger Goodell, why, suddenly it was all about Trump.
  • The players, who let’s be honest, really had pretty much no idea why they were kneeling out there other than some vague multi-millionaire game player’s notion of being “oppressed”, suddenly decided that their demonstrations were all about Trump.  Yeah, that’s the ticket!  Many of the owners joined in because, well, they just had to show “solidarity” with their players because…because, ummm,welllll…because TRUMP!  Yeah, because Trump! That’s what it is!  Meanwhile, Goodell is thrilled by it all because everyone’s blaming Trump instead of him.  The Trump boogeyman works for all parties in this one.
  • The Most Corrupt Woman In America – Then there’s our very favorite leftwing slinger of nonsense and sleaze, Hillary Rotten, er, Rodham Clinton.  This pathetic woman has parlayed abject corruption into a net worth of more than $200 million, and has spent the year blaming her 2016 election loss and everything else that is wrong with the world on – who else? – President Trump.  Even the broken toe she claims to have suffered on Saturday while running up the stairs is no doubt the President’s fault – the vodka and diet Dr. Pepper had nothing to do with it.
  • Then there is San Juan’s Crazy Little Marxist Mayor, Carmen Cruz, who has now completely discarded all pretense of not being a communist and has taken to dressing up as Che Guevara in her press availabilities.  The government of Puerto Rico in general and in San Juan in particular has been a cesspit of corruption forever, and Ms. Cruz has done nothing to remedy any of that.  The Island’s infrastructure, thanks in large part to government officials siphoning off money for themselves and their friends – as all good Marxists do – was in horrible shape before Hurricane Maria hit, and was basically destroyed completely by the storm.
  • Despite the fact that the U.S. government has come into the island with literally thousands of military, FEMA and other recovery workers, massive amounts of supplies, and more generators than anywhere else on the face of the earth, progress has been slowed by the fact that the local trucker’s union decided this tragedy was a great time to go on strike, an action the crazy little Mayor supports.  So, when the people of your island are suffering mainly due to your own corruption and ideological stupidity, what do you do?  Why, you get in front of any CNN camera you can find and blame Trump!  Works like charm.
  • Finally, there’s the repugnant John McCain, literally the worst person who has ever served in the United States Senate.  In receiving some “Liberty Medal” from his ideological sympatico Joe Biden on Monday, McCain had this to say:  “To abandon the ideals we have advanced around the globe” and “refuse the obligations of international leadership … for the sake of some half-baked, spurious nationalism cooked up by people who would rather find scapegoats than solve problems” is “As unpatriotic as an attachment to any other tired dogma of the past that Americans consigned to the ash heap of history.”
  • So, putting America  and Americans first, ahead of McCain’s and Biden’s globalist, open borders ideology, is “unpatriotic”, in McCain’s view.  He didn’t say which government – the U.N. perhaps? – it is “unpatriotic” towards.
  • But this is McCain’s swan song, blaming Trump for preventing him from “solving problems.”  Think about that – can you think of a single problem John McCain ever solved in his entire 30+ years in government?  Neither can I.
  • That’s not Trump’s fault.  Trump’s just the boogeyman.

Just another day in Blame Trump! America.

That is all.

Yes, CNN, Trump Is Reversing Obama’s “Legacy”. That’s Why He Won.

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

  • So, the members of the Motion Picture Academy, a large portion of whom are no doubt sexual abusers of one form or another themselves, voted to kick Harvey Weinstein out of the membership of their illustrious group.  Boy, that’ll show him.
  • Late night talk show host and un-funny comic Jimmy Kimmel, fresh off of being proclaimed to be “America’s moral conscience” by some idiot writing for CNN, told a CNN fake journalist on Friday that “I am not America’s moral conscience.”  Can somebody please let me know when this particular debate is over?  Thanks.
  • If you’re thinking the Clinton family is really going to return any of that Weinstein hush money they received over the last 20 years, watch the video at this link of Chelsea Clinton fleeing to the safety of her car to avoid answering any questions about it on Saturday.  Not one thin dime of that quarter million that went into the Clinton Crime Family Fake Foundation will go anywhere else.  Forget about it.
  • Don’t look now – ok, go ahead and look – but the fake journalists who infest CNN are waking up to the fact that President Donald Trump (I still never get tired of typing that) is – gasp! – focusing his efforts on reversing the anti-American legacy of Barack Obama.  Why, the nerve!
  • Writing on CNN’s website on Friday, that keeper of the Obama flame Chris Cilizza says that “The key to understanding Trump’s motivations here are entirely contained in the ACA’s shorthand nickname: Obamacare. It’s named after the man — former President Barack Obama (duh) — who shepherded it into existence. And that’s exactly why Trump wants to get rid of it.”  Yes, to the nitwits who pretend to be reporters and opinionists at Obama Central, Trump’s dismantling of an utterly failed government takeover of 1/6th of the nation’s economy has literally nothing to do with the undeniable fact that it is horrible policy that has taken many millions of Americans completely out of the health insurance system, and is 100% because Trump just doesn’t like Obama.
  • This is what CNN calls “insightful analysis.”  My goodness.
  • Cilizza cannot bring himself to acknowledge the truth about Trump’s order to rescind Obama’s executive order that gave hundreds of millions in subsidies each year to insurance companies, which is that Obama’s order was patently unconstitutional.  The Constitution clearly requires that all federal spending must be authorized by congress, and congress never authorized those payments.  The fact is that Trump’s order is simply one piece of his ongoing campaign to return this country to the rule of law, a concept that was studiously ignored during Obama’s 8 years in office.
  • So yes, the Trump presidency has thus far been largely focused on reversing the legacy of lawlessness that preceded it.  this used to be known as responsible governance.
  • And what a success this effort to erase the Obama legacy from our midst has been thus far.  With the reversal of literally thousands of terrible, economy-killing regulations and dozens of patently illegal executive orders, Trump’s administration has demonstrated that the Obama “legacy” was almost entirely built on a foundation of matchsticks that would go up in flames with the election of any president who actually cares about the country.
  • While the fake news media has done its best to ignore it, President Trump’s reversals of Obama’s failed legacy have also extended to the War on Terror, and the destruction of ISIS in Syria and Iraq, which is largely complete.  Literally thousands of ISIS fighters in Syria and Iraq have surrendered over the past few weeks with barely a mention on the nightly newscasts, and ISIS is on the verge of defeat in the key strongholds of Raqqa and Mayadeen, leaving Boukamal as the terror group’s lone remaining harbor.
  • Thus, just 9 months into his presidency, Trump’s military leaders have, working with Syria and others, almost wiped out the terrorist group that Obama fooled around with and allowed to grow throughout his second term in office.  Chris Cilizza is no doubt horrified by this as well.
  • But out here in Flyover Country, us Normals are pretty happy to see ISIS being wiped out, the stock market setting records almost every day, the economy booming, our manufacturing industries investing tens of billions of dollars in new plants and equipment, and even about having a President who is willing to refer to Christmas as “Christmas.”
  • Chris Cilizza and the rest of the Obama-worshippers at CNN will never understand it, but all of this is exactly why Donald Trump is our President today.

Just another day in fake news America.

Law Enforcement Has Failed The Las Vegas Massacre Victims

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

  • It is hard to remember any modern criminal investigation in the United States that was botched as badly in its public communications as the investigation into the Las Vegas massacre has been thus far.  The Orlando night club shootings were a mess, but at least investigators into that terrorist attack had a relatively believable narrative and timeline nailed down within about 48 hours of the incident.  The same was true of the San Bernardino terrorist assault – within a few days of that mass murder, law enforcement appeared to have the salient facts of the case pretty well nailed down and communicated to the public.
  • Unfortunately, the same cannot be said for the ongoing (we think, anyway) investigation (such as it may be) into the mass shootings in Las Vegas, which killed 58 innocent people and wounded almost 500.  The investigators in this case still do not appear to have nailed down the simplest, most basic facts of the case, starting with when the shooter checked into the damn hotel.
  • On Friday, Las Vegas Metro PD Sheriff Joe Lombardo seemed to confirm that, after 12 full days of claiming that the shooter checked into the Mandalay Bay Resort on September 28, he and his crack staff of investigators finally got with the hotel’s front desk, had them hit a few keys on their computer, and determined that he actually checked in on September 25.  This is a fact many ordinary people have known for at least a week, thanks to the revelation by hotel employees of both a room service receipt dated September 27, and a valet receipt in the shooter’s name dated – guess what? – September 25.  This really is not that hard, Sheriff.
  • But maybe Sheriff Lombardo didn’t confirm that as an actual fact – it’s almost impossible to tell, given that he is possibly the most nervous, shifty, and inept public speaker in the history of American law enforcement.  Maybe he’s nervous because he isn’t used to this role.  No, wait, that can’t be it, since he has performed the role of public spokesman on hundreds of criminal investigations in the past.  Maybe he’s so nervous because he’s embarrassed that his investigation thus far has been such an abject cluster-you-know-what.  That could be it – the Sheriff does at least appear to be a person with some sense of self-awareness.
  • Or maybe, as is typical of so many public speakers, he’s so extremely, visibly nervous because he doesn’t really believe the narrative he is reciting is actually true.  Maybe he’s so extremely, visibly, tremblingly nervous because of that beady-eyed FBI guy standing just behind his left shoulder monitoring each and every word he says.  That might have something to do with it.
  • Regardless of the reasons for his nervousness before the cameras, somebody needs to get Sheriff Lombardo some lessons in public communications, fast.  Here are some lessons some smart communications professional could teach him:
    • It does not inspire confidence when you break off eye contact every time you recite some “fact” or “timeline” discovered by your investigation.  People who believe what they’re saying typically have no problem looking their questioner or the camera in the eye when they answer;
    • Given the FBI’s recent history of major corruption and defrauding the American public, it does not inspire a lick of confidence when you tell us that “We are standing hand-in-hand with the FBI in the continuance of this investigation”, as you said in your no-questions press conference yesterday.  For informed Americans, that is actually a cause for alarm;
    • Speaking of that press conference, it does not inspire any confidence at all when you hold a press conference, strictly limit its attendance only to press members you approve, and then refuse to take questions;
    • If you feel you have to say “There is no conspiracy between the FBI, LVMPD, or the MGM,” you have a credibility problem of your own doing, from which it is probably impossible to recover; and finally
    • If you hold a press conference at which you say and do all of these things and basically offer no real, new information at all, then you shouldn’t have held the press conference.
  • To be clear, neither I nor anyone else knows if there is any sort of conspiracy among law enforcement to push any sort of false narrative about this horrible crime.  It could just be that Sheriff Lombardo really is the most inept spokesman for any major criminal investigation in modern times.
  • What I do know is that the story we’re being told right now is so filled with holes it could serve as your kitchen collander.  It is simply not believable, for instance, that this shooter was a guest at the Mandalay Bay for a full week and was never captured by any of the hotel’s thousands of security cameras.  Not possible.  Period.  It is simply not believable that his multiple computers contained no useful information about his background or his preparations for this crime, which, if law enforcement is to be believed, spanned months, if not years.
  • The American public deserves better than what law enforcement has delivered related to this investigation thus far.  More to the point, the 58 dead, 500 injured and their loved ones deserve better.  If Sheriff Lombardo and his beady-eyed FBI overseer are incapable of providing that, then perhaps someone else should be put in charge of this case.

Just another day in unbelievable government narratives America.

That is all.

The Best Solution To The Weinstein Problem? CalExit!

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

  • Democrats everywhere gave her an “A” for effort. – After President Trump issued an executive order that would enable small businesses and individuals to form health insurance associations across state lines and thus demand lower premiums for insurance policies, San Fran Nan Pelosi told reporters that “I don’t know what he’s putting out today, but I do know it’s a sabotage” of Obamacare.  Hey, give her a break:  She didn’t know what was in Obamacare, either, and still doesn’t.  At least Pelosi was able to remember and recite the day’s Democrat/fake media code word – which every Democrat and fake reporters used all day long – related to the President’s executive order, which of course was “sabotage.”  She had no idea why she was using it, but at least she managed to use it.
  • How about “Hobgoblin”?  No?  Ok, what about “Rotten tomato”?  Wait, that’s two words… – Today, the President will very likely terminate U.S. sponsorship of the Obama/Kerry idiotic deal with Iran, and we can only speculate on what the Democrat/media code word will be related to this action.  “Reckless”, perhaps?  “Irresponsible”?  No, that’s too many syllables, Pelosi could never remember it.  “Dark”?  No, they only use that when he’s talking about putting America first.  Hmmmmmm…I’m going with “reckless.”  Let’s sit back and see what happens.
  • Meanwhile, in Harvey Weinstein world… – Stuff got real for Amazon grand poobah Jeff Bezos yesterday afternoon, as director/actor/producer Rose McGowan turned her one-woman war on Hollywood in an unexpected direction.  While she didn’t accuse Bezos himself of any bad sexual behavior, she went off on the head of Amazon’s movie studio with a vengeance, accusing him of covering for Weinstein after she had informed him that Weinstein had raped her.  She ended her tweetstorm by imploring Bezos to “Be the change you want to see in the world.  Stand with the truth.”
  • Interestingly, while every other major media outlet on the face of the earth seems to have run a story on the McGowan/Bezos dustup, the Washington Post, which Bezos owns, apparently did not find this story newsworthy.  Go figure.
  • In response not to McGowan’s accusations, but to a separate accusation made by producer Isa Hackett Dick, Amazon did see fit to suspend the studio chief in question, some guy named Roy Price.  My goodness, what a cesspit of depravity Hollywood is turning out to be, and we haven’t even gotten to the pedophiles.  Yet.
  • CalExit is the solution! – This whole Weinstein deal ought to remind every thinking American out in the 98% of the country that lies outside of the major media centers that there is an organized, dedicated effort to have California secede from the United States, most commonly referred to as “CalExit”.  And lo and behold, the Sacramento Bee carried a story about this effort yesterday, in which backers of this secession effort say they believe they have an easier path to taking their state out of the union than the Catalonians have to separate their region from Spain.
  • While that’s not exactly a low bar, it gives the organizers hope:  “There are definitely similarities in the fiscal situation – we both give more than we get back,” said Dave Marin, director of research and policy for the California Freedom Coalition. “But there’s more flexibility in the U.S. Constitution for secession than there is in the Spanish one. California has more tools available to it.”  Honestly, it should give the rest of us a little hope as well that maybe, sometime in the near future, the cesspit of depravity that is Harvey Weinstein World will reside in a whole separate country.  Seems like a very reasonable solution, doesn’t it?
  • Incidentally, about that whole “we both give more than we get back” line of BS spouted by Mr. Marin:  I’m thinking this guy hasn’t considered what his state’s life would be like without all that water coming into LA from the Colorado River Basin.  And I’m thinking he hasn’t given a lot of thought to what it might cost his new country to recruit and maintain its own military forces, because if you think us “Normals” out here in flyover country are just going to smile and say “great!” when Californians come begging for water and our armed forces to protect them when things get real, you don’t really know us Normals, and you really don’t want to find out the answer to those questions the hard way.
  • But hey, go for it, Mr. Marin.  All I want to know about your effort really and truly is, how can I help make it happen?

Just another day in I have found the solution to the whole Weinstein problem America.

That is all.

CNN Airs The Hillary And Harvey Show – Rampant Prevarication Ensues

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

  • Exactly how misplaced are our Attorney General’s priorities?  Let me show you. – The Justice Department announced on Wednesday that the FBI was opening an investigation into the possibly illegal activities of…wait for it…wait for it…Harvey Weinstein!  I swear I don’t make this stuff up.  So, Attorney General Jeff Sessions is perfectly capable of having the FBI investigate the sexual proclivities of a film producer, but he appears to be utterly incapable of investigating the possible illegal activities of Hillary Clinton, Susan Rice, Samantha Power, John Brennan or anyone else who served in the Obama Administration.  This guy is worthless.  What a waste.
  • In Other Harvey Weinstein news… – Hillary Clinton, in a predictably softball interview on CNN Wednesday, told fake journalist Fareed Zakaria that she was “sick” and “appalled” to hear about her “friend” Harvey Weinstein’s behavior towards women.  This is truly hard to believe.  The Clintons have been paling around with the big Hollywood muckety-muck for more than 20 years.  He’s held fundraisers for both of them, personally given to their campaigns, bundled hundreds of thousands of dollars to their campaigns, and given as much as a quarter million dollars to the Clinton Crime Family fake Foundation.
  • The thought that the Clintons had no idea about the true nature of their “friend” strains all credibility to the breaking point.  Mrs. Clinton, after all, is supposed to be just the smartest woman on earth according to her brain-dead sycophants.  Her claim to have known nothing is too ridiculous to even contemplate.  But of course, Zakaria just nodded his silly little head at his heroine’s answers and moved on to his next silly question, because he’s such a silly little man.
  • Hillary assured the audience that she would be donating Weinstein’s campaign “contributions” to various women’s charities, which is great.  She did not specify whether that means just the funds Weinstein personally contributed specifically to her various campaigns, or would include all the money he bundled together and raised for her at the various fundraisers he hosted for her.  Nor did she say anything about the big sum he tossed into her family’s fake foundation.  Unless some third party keeps pressure on her – which we know the fake news media will not do – it’s a safe bet she will donate the smallest sum possible, and whatever she does donate will go to various “causes” like Planned Parenthood and Emily’s List, which will just funnel the money right on over to the Democrat Party.  No one does money laundering like the Clintons.
  • At one point, Mrs. Clinton chuckled and claimed “I give 10% of my income to charity every year, after all…”.  As the National Review pointed out last year, the great bulk of Mrs. Clinton’s “charitable giving” goes to… wait for it…The Clinton Foundation and events associated with it!  Of course it does.
  • And if you think any of this Weinstein scandal is just Tiddly-Winks, know that the goons who run Twitter suspended actress Rose McGowan’s account Wednesday night.  This action was taken at the behest of someone, because the Twitter goons don’t just go around suspending accounts absent a complaint.  McGowan had been using her account to “out” people, like Ben Affleck, who she believes (most likely knows) have been lying in their public statements about what they knew about Weinstein before the NYTimes published its story about him last week.  In taking this action, which she began before Weinstein lost his power, she has distinguished herself as pretty much the only admirable character in this particular Hollywood production.  So naturally, the Twitter goons went after her.  Somebody with a lot of influence is very, very worried about what Ms. McGowan might say about them.  You seriously can’t make this stuff up.
  • “America’s conscience” has got some ‘splainin’ to do – Some enterprising person unearthed a video of talk show host and bad comic Jimmy Kimmel – who one idiot opinion writer dubbed “America’s conscience” early this week – doing a ‘man on the street’ routine in which he has something stuffed in the crotch of his pants and asks girls passing by to alternately grab it or “put your mouth on it” to see if they can tell what it is.  For those who do not know, Mr. Kimmel was years ago a host of something called “The Man Show”, a program in which the humiliation of young women was a nightly occurrence.  I’m not sure America really needs that as its “conscience.”
  • Meanwhile, Napa and Sonoma Valleys are burning up, 21 people are dead, and everybody – including me, sadly – is talking about the wretched Harvey Weinstein.  God bless the souls of those who have perished, and those brave first responders who are working around the clock to contain the fires, and God help the hundreds who are still missing.  What a terrible tragedy this is.

Just another day in scandal-plagued America.

That is all.

Goodell Moves Far Too Late To Cure The Greatest Self-Inflicted Wound in Sports History

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

  • Tired of winning yet?  Part I – The stock market indexes all closed at all-time record highs on Tuesday, marking about the 7,953rd time that has happened since Donald Trump was elected to the presidency.  (yawn)
  • Tired of winning yet?  Part II – (This one is personal to me.)  The U.S. soccer team failed to make it into the upcoming World Cup competition because the team fielded by the most powerful nation on earth could not defeat the team from…wait for it…wait for it…Trinidad and Tobago!  I am so relieved!  Now I won’t have to suffer through a year of half the people I know doing a bunch of virtue signaling about how much they just love this sport to which they pay literally no attention at all in 3 out of every 4 years.  And I won’t have to see highlights of players from countries I’ve never even heard of faking major knee injuries so they can draw a yellow card, and then jumping up after 30 seconds and running off the field.  And I won’t have to hear anyone tell me what a ‘beautiful’ and ‘exciting’ sport this incredibly tiresome, unendingly boring, tedious wreck of a game is.  Thank God for this favor – I am incredibly grateful.  Go, Trinidad and Tobago!
  • Tired of winning yet?  Part III – The U.S. Supreme Court dismissed the challenge to President Trump’s travel ban late Tuesday after months of idiotic and baseless litigation instigated by leftist Democrat state attorney generals and supported by leftist Obama appointee federal judges who hold no respect for the constitution.  Cool.
  • Tired of winning yet?  Part IV – A few hours after President Donald J. Trump (I never get tired of typing that) issued a tweet early Tuesday morning questioning the current tax subsidies received by the National Football League, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell sent a memo to all 32 league team owners instructing them that “all players should stand for the national anthem.”  Coincidence?  I think not.
  • Goodell’s move, of course, comes a little bit more than a year too late.  It comes after the NFL has lost around 20% of its audience since currently unemployed ex-49ers QB Colin Kaepernick first did his attention-seeking kneel-down during the anthem at the behest of his marxist girlfriend on August 26, 2016.   It comes after Goodell and the 32 owners stood silently by doing nothing as Kaepernick’s silly sideshow act slowly gained imitators at other teams as the 2016 season went along, and after the dam literally broke and disrespecting the flag and anthem became a league-wide fad this season.
  • Goodell’s move comes after the NFL’s reputation as “America’s Game”, a title it had held for at least 40 years, had been tossed into the trash can, as the league has now been surpassed in public approval by both Major League Baseball and, at least temporarily, by the National Basketball Association.  His memo comes after a month of acrimony between the league and the President of the United States, who has repeatedly urged the league to force the players to show a little respect for the country that has made them so fabulously wealthy and famous, and following Sunday’s walk-out of a game between the Colts and 49ers by Vice President Mike Pence.  Goodell’s memo comes only after NFL teams all over the country have played games before half-empty stadiums that used to be host to standing-room-only crowds week after week.
  • The sad part of all of this, if you’re an NFL fan like I used to be, is that every bit of this could have been completely avoided had Goodell, on August 27, 2016, made a phone call to the idiot owner of the San Francisco 49ers, and instructed him to bench a single player for a single game if he would not stand for the national anthem.  But Goodell is a progressive moron, and didn’t have the sense to do that.  Because of that, we have for the last 13 months witnessed what is without a doubt the greatest self-inflicted wound in the history of organized sports, a wound from which the NFL may never really recover.  Tough.
  • Meanwhile, in Harvey Weinstein news… – The proverbial dam really broke Tuesday on the Harvey Weinstein scandal, as all the no-guts celebrities and politicians who knew about this scumbag all along but lacked the courage to do anything about it suddenly found their voices now that the big Hollywood muckety-muck no longer holds any power over them.  Most of them still lied about the matter, claiming to be ‘shocked’ and ‘appalled’, but they all knew.  Hell, Weistein’s behavior towards women was such common knowledge that Seth McFarlane joked about it on national TV during the Oscar ceremonies in 2013, and Tina Fey was writing gag lines about it on the TV show 30 Rock.
  • But as I told you a couple of days ago, Weinstein will be right back working in Hollywood within a year.  Right on cue, as his world was seemingly crumbling around him, he told the people at the New York Post’s Page 6 that he was flying off to a rehab clinic somewhere in Europe (Hey, maybe Roman Polanski can be his therapist!) and promised them that he was already planning on resuming his career in 2018.
  • If you doubt he’ll be able to achieve that, well, just watch.  Weinstein is a leftist icon, and the political left will always try to rehabilitate its icons regardless of how badly they act.  Hell, they re-elected Bill Clinton to the presidency for a second term, do you think they’ll just toss a major donor like good ol’ Harvey aside because he abused a few women?  Don’t kid yourselves.  These are progressives we’re talking about here.  No amount of depravity is too much for these people.

Just another day in Trump just keeps winning America.

That is all.

This Weinstein Deal Is Just Getting Started. Fun!

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

  • The king is dead.  It’s safe to talk now. – So, Harvey Weinstein gets fired, loses his power, and suddenly, the Hollywood cockroaches get brave and start scrambling out of the woodwork to “denounce” him.  But of course, some of them claim they didn’t know, in spite of the fact the guy had been abusing women for a quarter century, often in public.  The increasingly disgusting Meryl Streep issued a statement in which she claims to have no knowledge at all of Weinstein’s behavior towards women, a patently unbelievable denial given her longtime close relationship with Weinstein, which includes calling him her “god” at an awards ceremony.  Glenn Close would only admit to having heard “rumors”.  Yeah, right.  Jessica Chastain, Emma Thompson, and Romala Garai all came out with more believable condemnations of the big Hollywood muckety-muck now that he can’t get them jobs.  Great.
  • Meanwhile, actress Rose McGowan, one of the few who was brave enough to start making noise before Weinstein lost all power, continues to use her Twitter account to call out others with knowledge who continue to remain silent.  Alyssa Milano, Ben Affleck, Jennifer Lawrence, Matt Damon, Russell Crowe and Casey Affleck have all been targets of her tweets, along with the entire board of directors of the Weinstein Company, who of course had to know about the boss’s behavior since they had been approving all the lawsuit settlements and other payoffs.
  • Late Monday, the Weinstein Company announced that Harvey Weinstein’s name would be removed from all TV shows he has produced over the years, which is the Hollywood version of tearing down monuments to confederate generals.  Hey, at least they’re focusing on their own monuments for once.
  • Those of you who thought this whole scandal would end once you learned Weinstein had been fired from his own company, worry not:  it is just getting started, and a whole bunch of Hollywood scumbags are going to have a lot of explaining to do, as long as Rose McGowan doesn’t lose her nerve.  Fun!  Someone go pop some popcorn.
  • The government’s Vegas narrative is falling apart. – In Las Vegas, Sheriff Joe Lombardo held a press conference that clarified nothing and added a ton of confusion to the public’s knowledge base of what might have really happened there last Sunday:
    • The Sheriff now says that security guard Jesus Campos was shot a full 6 minutes before the gunman began shooting at the crowd below.  For a full week prior to Monday’s presser, authorities had credited Campos for having interrupted the shooter 10 minutes after he started shooting, thus stopping the carnage.  Why did it take a damn week to figure this simple element of the puzzle out?
    • The Sheriff also appeared to admit to having evidence that the shooter may have actually checked into the hotel on September 25 rather than the story of a September 28 check-in that officials have been pushing for a week.  Good lord, does Mandalay Bay keep check-in records or not?  How can this possibly even be a question 8 days after the massacre took place?
    • In spite of half a dozen eye-witnesses who saw the shooter hanging around with an Asian woman at Mandalay Bay in the days prior to the assault, the Sheriff claimed on Monday that investigators have come up with no evidence that the killer was seen with anyone prior to the killing spree.
  • This is absurd.  We are 8 days down the road from one of the biggest mass murders in modern times, and the government obviously can’t get its preferred narrative straight.  I’ve spent the past week thinking Lombardo is the honest broker among law enforcement working the case.  Monday’s press conference did not inspire confidence at all.
  • ESPN fake journalist Jemele Hill a few weeks ago:  “President Trump is a White Supremacist!”
    ESPN management:  “You go, girl!”
    ESPN fake journalist Jemele Hill on Monday:  “Y’all need to boycott sponsors of the Dallas Cowboys!”
    ESPN management:  “You suspended, girl!”
    Money talks.

Just another day in the government’s narrative on the Vegas massacre is falling apart America.

That is all.

Sunday Was a Very Bad Day For the “Steins”

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

  • It couldn’t happen to a nicer guy. – Man, you know you’re having a bad day when the company with your name on it, the company you personally founded, comes to you and says “you’re fired!”  But that’s exactly what happened to producer of mediocre films and all-around high Hollywood muckety-muck Harvey Weinstein on Sunday, as the Weinstein Company’s board of directors, including his own brother, unanimously voted to can him.  That’s a really bad day.
  • It’s important to note that the Weinstein Company’s board of directors did not fire Weinstein because they found out about their CEO’s serial abuse of women.  They fired him because the rest of us found out about it.  Big difference.
  • In case you’re feeling all warm and fuzzy with the fake journalists and fake editors who infest the NYTimes for running the story that brought Weinstein down, well, don’t.  Writing in The Wrap, former Times reporter Sharon Waxman details how she had this story nailed in…wait for it…2004, but that, thanks to immense pressure put on the Times by Weinstein and actors Matt Damon and Russell Crowe, the fake editors at the fake newspaper gutted her story of all reference to the high muckety-muck’s abuse of women and buried the remainder of her story in bowels of the Culture section.
  • Much like many of his own productions, there are no good guys in this particular film.  No intrepid journalists exposing corruption, no valiant actors or actresses doing the right thing at risk of their own personal careers, no principled politicians who refuse to take money from a man they know to be a woman abuser.  No socially-redeeming characters here at all.
  • Speaking of “steins”, California Senator Dianne Feinstein (who was happy to take money from Harvey Weinstein), right in the middle of her latest effort to ban gun ownership in America, openly admitted in an interview on Face The Nation on Sunday that there is no law, either on the books or that she could pass, that would have stopped the Las Vegas gunman:  “No, he passed background checks registering for handguns and other weapons on multiple occasions,” she told host John Dickerson.  Well, duh.
  • But of course, that did not stop the gun-grabbing Senator from California from going ahead and talking about how she has all sorts of ideas on gun laws, which she did not specify, that would “make things safer.”  The next logical question for any real journalist would be “Can you be specific about what those ideas are, Senator?”  But Ms. Feinstein is a Democrat, and thus exempt from the asking of any follow-up questions that might reveal the emptiness of her ideas.
  • So she was just allowed to ramble on about how the question of “bump stocks” requires a bill – which she just happens to have in-hand – and can’t be resolved via a regulatory review by the BATFE, which ruled the things to be legal in 2010.  Which, of course, may or may not be true, and we won’t know until the agency has performed its regulatory review.  Sen. Feinstein at one point stated that “Regulations aren’t going to do it. We need a law.  It can’t be changed by another president. Right now we’re seeing one president change actions of a – of a president that came before him, and that would happen in this area.”
  • That statement doesn’t really make sense and seems self-contradictory, but the Senator seems to be claiming there that BATFE in the Trump Administration cannot reverse a regulatory ruling made during the Barack Obama Administration.  This is abject nonsense.  As the Trump Administration has already shown in literally hundreds of instances already, federal agencies can indeed reverse or modify regulatory rulings made years earlier, as long as they have the legal justification for doing so.  We won’t know if BATFE can find a legal hook for reversing its earlier approval of the bump stock toy until the regulatory review has been performed.  This is how our government works.
  • The reality with Sen. Feinstein is that she wants to do a bill for the sake of doing a bill, so that she can take credit for “doing something”, even if it is, as a practical matter, meaningless.  Because making futile gestures in the name of “doing something” so they can take political credit is what Democrats do.

Just another day in Democrat gun-grabbing America.

That is all.

Weinstein Will Be Back Winning Awards Within A Year

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

  • Prediction time – Serial woman abuser and all-around big Hollywood muckety-muck Harvey Weinstein will enter himself into some sort of sex pervert “rehab” program, come out of it within 90 days “fully cured”, and within a year be given some sort of “courage” award by Meryl Streep at one of the 12 dozen or so annual Hollywood awards programs.  Nothing is too absurd or depraved for these people.
  • Hollywood lawyer Lisa Bloom, who spent four days making up excuses for Weinstein’s 25 year reign of terror, abruptly announced on Saturday that she would no longer be representing the clown.  It seems that even Ms. Bloom, the daughter of the completely ethics-devoid, attention-seeking hack Gloria Allred, could not stomach inventing fake talking points for this guy.
  • Wait.  Lanny Davis has a “line”? – But wait, it gets even better:  Even the shameless political hack Lanny Davis announced on Saturday that he was pulling out of Weinstein’s team of advisers.  Lanny Davis has spent the last 25 years making up fake talking points for Bill and Hillary Clinton, folks.  This guy had no problem whatsoever making up fake talking points slandering Bill Clinton’s many female victims, had zero issue with lying about Bill and Hill’s illegal use of the FBI files of more than 1,000 of their political enemies, had no worry at all about prevaricating in defense of Hillary’s illegal email server.  But making up lies for Harvey Weinstein, well, that just crosses Lanny Davis’s line.  You just can’t make this stuff up.
  • We’ve heard a lot over the last four days about how “powerful” Weinstein is, but here’s the truth about that:  Harvey Weinstein has always only been “powerful” to those who want something from him, either professionally or politically.  Everyone in Hollywood and the Democrat Party was willing, for more than a quarter of a century, to simply look the other way and ignore his personal behavior because they all wanted something from him.  And everyone in Hollywood – other than Ashley Judd, whose career is basically over anyway – is remaining silent on the matter because they all still hope they might get something from Weinstein in the future, after he gets “cured” and makes his big comeback.  These people are disgusting, and normal Americans should stop supporting what they do with our money.
  • Speaking of disgusting people normal Americans should stop supporting with our money… – A new Winston Group survey released on Saturday indicates that the National Football League has, in the span of less than three months, fallen from the most popular major sport in the United States to the least favorite, falling behind both Major League Baseball and the National Basketball Association.  Of course, this poll comes before the beginning of the NBA season, and there is no telling what sorts of spectacles we are go see from players in that sport – and from San Antonio Spurs Coach Gregg Popovich – during the playing of the national anthem this fall.  But at least for now, the NFL has become the sport non-grata for the average American.  Couldn’t happen to a nicer bunch of people.
  • And here’s a group of disgusting people normal Americans have already stopped supporting. – If you have wondered why Donald Trump’s public approval rating has steadily moved upwards over the past couple of months despite the withering nightly assault on his character from the networks’ current silly group of late-night talk show hosts, wonder no more.  It’s because nobody actually watches this silly group of late night talk show hosts anymore.  The Washington Examiner points out that taken all together, the shows starring Jimmy Kimmel, Jimmy Fallon and Stephen Colbert were watched by an average of barely 8 million viewers last week.  Just a few years ago, Jay Leno by himself was averaging more than 6 million viewers each night, with David Letterman trailing very closely behind.
  • One would think that sooner or later someone at these networks might wake up and think, hey, maybe it’s not such a great idea to intentionally insult half of our potential audience every night, because those people buy all the junk our advertisers sell, too.  But the evidence at hand indicates that light bulb moment won’t be happening anytime soon.

Just another day in ordinary people voting with their pocketbooks and remote controls America.

That is all.
