Morning Joe and Maddow Go Full Blown Deranged Over Trump/Kim Meeting

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Tired of all this Winning yet? – President Donald Trump (I never tire of typing those words) took the wonderful step on Friday of issuing a pardon to former Navy Submariner Kristian Saucier.  Saucier was persecuted (and yes, I did mean to type that word, not “prosecuted”) by the Obama Justice Department in 2016 for having taken photos of a naval nuclear guidance system with his cell phone, ultimately being sentenced to serve a year in prison during the same time Obama’s DOJ was actively helping the Pantsuit Princess avoid any punishment at all for her illegal email server, and trying to fix the general election on her behalf.

Where we know that the Coughing Crook’s email server – on which gobs of classified information was transmitted – was hacked by several hostile nations, there was no allegation at all that Mr. Saucier had shared the photos of the guidance system with anyone.

At her Friday press briefing, White House spokesman Sarah Huckabee Sanders had this to say:

“Mr. Saucier was 22 years old at the time of his offenses and has served out his 12-month sentence. He has been recognized by his fellow service members for his dedication, skill and patriotic spirit,” she said.

“While serving, he regularly mentored younger sailors and served as an instructor for new recruits. The sentencing judge found that Mr. Saucier’s offense stands in contrast to his commendable military service,” she said. “The president is appreciative of Mr. Saucier’s service to the country.”

So, yet another aspect of the pathetic, un-American Obama “legacy” has been reversed by Donald J. Trump.  That, folks, is #WINNING.

Tony Heller – who uses the pseudonym “Steve Goddard” on his Twitter account – has done a great job of documenting how Obama climate activists at NASA and NOAA have systematically created “global warming” where none has taken place in the last 20 years by going back in time to make the past appear cooler by falsifying the global temperature records.

Heller issued this tweet on Friday:


To which I replied:

Yes, I know I misspelled “Grapes” thanks to a recalcitrant “e” key, but you get the point.  Goddard did, too, replying with:

Can’t wait to see it.  Of course, all the snowflakes and social justice warriors will think the video is actually a documentary.

If you don’t follow Heller at his website, “The Deplorable Climate Science Blog,” you are missing out.

The Dimwits over at MSNBC went absolutely berserk in response to President Trump’s announcement that he is planning to meet with North Korea’s Crazy Little Fat Guy in the next few months to discuss the de-nuclearization of the Korean Peninsula.  Joe Scarborough, appealing to his demented fan base in the upper East side of Manhattan, claimed that Trump really isn’t planning to engage in negotiations with the mad little dictator.

With his disgusting mistress Mika nodding her head beside him, the former fake Republican congressman said that Trump only made the announcement to distract attention away from the media’s obsession with porn starlet Stormy Daniels, who is claiming to have had an affair with Mr. Trump a decade ago.  I swear I don’t make this stuff up.

That was MSNBC’s wisdom circa Friday morning.  On Thursday evening, it was even worse, as the very odd Rachel Maddow went on an epic rant that left The Mooch speculating she needed to “take a suppository” to get over it.  Here is just a snippet of the Madness of Maddow:

“You might think another president in this circumstance, you can imagine a president asking himself or herself, ‘why has no other American president ever agreed to do this? Why has no sitting American president ever met with a leader from North Korea? Why has that never happened in all the decades North Korea existed as a nation? Should I take that to mean that this might be particularly risky or even an unwise move?'”

“It has been through Republican and Democratic administrations, the whole strategy not only for the United States but for the United States as leader of the free world, to the extent that we are, has been to treat North Korea as a pariah state and thereby try to change their behavior.”

Of course, Maddow lacks the self-awareness to ask herself why it is that the posture taken towards North Korea by previous presidents Clinton, Bush and Obama had led directly to the incredibly dangerous situation that President Trump inherited when he assumed office last year.  She is so consumed by Trump hatred that she cannot even consider that taking the same posture vis a vis North Korea over and over again for 25 years only to achieve the same terrible result is in fact the very definition of insanity, and that possibly, just possibly, a change of direction might thus be in order.  But hey, that’s totally understandable:  She is a liberal, after all.

Just another day in Trump Derangement Syndrome America.

Donald Trump Just Keeps On Winning

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Tired of all this Winning yet?  Part I –  Nevada Senator Dean Heller told a Las Vegas radio station on Thursday that Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy will be retiring this summer.  Let’s hope he’s right – Justice Kennedy, in his role as the wishy-washy swing vote on the court, has been responsible for more awful decisions in the last 30 years than perhaps any Justice in U.S. history.  Given President Trump’s record of appointing real constitutional conservatives to the bench, Kennedy’s retirement cannot come soon enough.

Tired of all this Winning yet?  Part II –  February’s official non-farm payroll report from the Labor Department shows that the Trump economy added a whopping 313,000 new jobs during the month, out-pacing expectations by more than 50%.  WINNING WINNING WINNING WINNING WINNING WINNING.

Tired of all this Winning yet? Part III – President Trump formally imposed tariffs on steel and aluminum tariffs, but as I speculated last week, he is using them as tools in negotiations with other countries.  As always with Mr. Trump, everything is a negotiation.

His initial tariffs provide exemptions for both Canada and Mexico, pending the outcome of ongoing re-negotiations of the NAFTA treaty.  Carrot, meet stick.

The President also noted that other countries – are you listening, China and Japan? – would have the ability to negotiate their way to lower tariffs or outright elimination of them.

“I’ll have a right to go up or down depending on the country, and I’ll have a right to drop out countries or add countries,” Trump said Thursday while previewing his announcement in an appearance alongside his Cabinet. “We’re going to be very fair, we’re going to be very flexible, but we’re going to protect the American worker — as I said I would do in my campaign.”

So, Mr. Trump keeps a campaign promise – one that has already seen U.S. Steel announce the hiring of 500 new workers – provides a carrot to North American allies to negotiate in good faith, and provides a stick to encourage China and Japan to engage in fairer trade with our country.  The stock market responded to Mr. Trump’s announcement by shooting upwards.  The fake journalists at the Washington Post characterized this as Mr. Trump backing down from his original plan.  Mr. Trump characterizes it as #Winning.

Tired of all this Winning yet?  Part IV – President Trump had a very busy day on Thursday, as he also announced that he has agreed to meet with North Korea’s Crazy Little Fat Guy.  According to South Korean National Security Adviser Chung Eui-yong, the Crazy Little Fat Guy expressed “eagerness” to meet with the U.S. President “as soon as possible” to discuss de-nuclearization in exchange for the lifting of international sanctions on his country.  President Trump has agreed in principle to the meeting, and boy wouldn’t you like to be a fly on the wall for that one?

The hilarious thing about yesterday’s announcement was watching Fox, and CNN spend a full hour between 6 and 7 ET hyping the press conference that was going to take place outside the White House at 7 p.m., and then having Mr. Chung come out, deliver a 15-second announcement, and promptly march right back into the White House without taking a single question.  This, of course, leaves the press and the rest of us with more questions than answers about the proposed meeting.

Before we get too excited about all of this, it’s important to note that it is all being filtered through the South Korean government, which has been holding talks with the Crazy Little Fat Guy and his entourage of hangers-on.  There has not yet been any formal communication directly between the U.S. and North Korean government on this meeting, so all we have right now is speculation.

We don’t even know, for example, where such a meeting would take place.  It is doubtful the little North Korean dictator would want to venture down to South Korea, and there is no way the President of the United States will be traveling to North Korea, or even to the demilitarized zone, due to security reasons.  So any meeting would have to take place either in the U.S., or in some neutral place such as Geneva, Switzerland.

A meeting in a neutral country presents all sorts of logistical hurdles and time limitations for having President Trump involved, so the reality here is that the U.S. would want to hold heavy preliminary negotiations before the two leaders actually meet.  If the Crazy Little Fat Guy is not really serious about giving up his strategic nukes and is just looking to use a negotiation process as a delaying tactic to hold off any U.S. military action while he continues to develop his intercontinental ballistic missile delivery systems, American negotiators should be able to determine that early on, and the proposed meeting between Kim and Trump would likely never take place.

President Trump referred to yesterday’s announcement as “great progress,” and perhaps it is.  We can always hope, at least, that that will turn out to be the case.  But what we really have right now is a lot of speculation with little real information to support it.  The North Koreans have a long history of sandbagging U.S. presidents like Bill Clinton and Barack Obama with glowing promises of good behavior, but then failing to come through once sanctions have been lifted.

To that point, Mr. Trump promised his administration would not make the mistake of lifting any sanctions while diplomacy is taking place.  In the coming months, he will almost certainly come under pressure from the appeasement-minded boobs in the State Department to do exactly that.  Everyone should hope that Mr. Trump holds firm.  No one named Kim has ever proved to be worthy of American trust, and we can be sure that the Crazy Little Fat Guy is no exception to that sad rule.

I predicted back in December that the situation with North Korea would ultimately be resolved without the firing of a single shot, and still believe that.  Yesterday’s events are encouraging on that point, even though there is still a very long road to be traveled.

Just another day in Donald Trump just keeps on winning America.

That is all.

Jeff Sessions Dropped a Bomb – Hardly Anyone Noticed

The Evening Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

I’ve been traveling this week, so I just noticed this myself this afternoon.  In an interview with Fox New’s Shannon Bream Wednesday night, Attorney General Jeff Sessions dropped a bomb when, after asked about allegations that officials within the FBI and the DOJ had violated the FISA process in order to spy on the Trump Campaign, he said the following:

“I have appointed a person outside of Washington, many years in the Department of Justice (DOJ), to look at all the allegations that the House Judiciary Committee members sent to us; and we’re conducting that investigation.” 

Wait, what?  When did that happen?  Why all the secrecy?  What is this person’s name?  What else might the person be looking at?  Here are some thoughts on what the answers to those questions might be.

First, you have to look at this from Sessions’ point of view:  He leads the DOJ, and thus the FBI as well.  Having his own DOJ lawyers investigate the FBI and DOJ anti-Trump cabal’s abuses would present a clear conflict of interest, as I pointed out last week.

My bet is that he took this action after he became aware of potential FISA abuses shortly after he assumed office in March of last year.  At that point, during his first briefing with DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz, he would have been made aware of the IG’s investigation into the FISA and other related matters, and thus would have become aware that he had a set of truly bad actors in his midst.  That is likely something Sessions already suspected, since it had become obvious during his confirmation hearing that he had personally been under illegal surveillance, but a briefing from Horowitz would have confirmed that reality.

Sessions would not have wanted to formally appoint a special counsel at that time, because that is a very public act, one which requires the public identification of the person who was being named.  Remember also that, at that time, Horowitz’s own investigation had only been up and running for a few months, meaning that some of the bad actors we know about today had not yet been identified, or had cases fully developed against them.

Formally appointing a special counsel at that time would have given all of these people the chance to either flee, cover their tracks, or even lawyer up before cases could have been fully developed.  Remember that we have only begun to publicly find out people like Strzok, Ohr, Page, McCabe and Baker since the first of  December.  Remember also that the disciplinary actions taken against them have been designed to keep them close and controlled.

It is also very interesting to note that none of these and others who have been identified as bad actors have been quoted in the press at all.  This is in direct contrast to James Comey, who went around leaking and singing like a jaybird for a few months after President Trump fired his sorry butt, and who is about to release a book next month.

This silence by the other bad actors most likely means one of two things:  Either these people have lawyered up and are keeping quiet to protect themselves in preparation for being prosecuted, or they are actually cooperating with Horowitz and Sessions’ unnamed outside lawyer in their ongoing investigations.

The quote from Mr. Sessions is a clever reference to the fact that he has had an outside prosecutor working on all of this stuff for quite some time now.  It is also most likely another move to set the stage for the impending release of IG Horowitz’s own report.  Unlike Horowitz, this unidentified special prosecutor would have the power to convene a grand jury – and may have already done so – and quickly begin issuing subpoenas based on the recommendations contain in the Horowitz report.

Thus, Sessions next statement from the interview:

I am well aware we have a responsibility to insure the integrity of the FISA process. We’re not afraid to look at that. The inspector general — some think that our inspector general is not very strong; but he has almost 500 [employees], most of which are lawyers and prosecutors; and they are looking at the FISA process. We must make sure that it’s done properly, and we’re going to do that. And I’ll consider their request.

He’ll not only consider their request, he’s had a special prosecutor preparing the playing field for quick action on those requests for months now.

Clever.  Boom.

That is all.

The Sessions v. California Lawsuit is a Good Start. Perp Walks of CA Officials Would be Even Better

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Tired of all this Winning yet? – The Trump economy just continues to add jobs at a phenomenal pace.  The ADP/Moody’s Analytics report for February indicates the economy created 235,000 new non-government jobs, well above expectations of 195,000.   The same report raised the initially-reported January number from 234,000 to 244,000.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced on Wednesday that the Justice Department is filing a lawsuit against California, challenging the state’s “sanctuary state” laws that have its officials openly violating national immigration laws.  The challenge is filed under the “Supremacy Clause” of the U.S. Constitution, which holds that, when state laws are in direct conflict with federal laws, the federal law prevails.  This would seem like a pretty open and shut case, but we can assume that the outlaw 9th Circuit Court of Appeals, through which this case would have to go prior to moving to the Supreme Court, will find some absurd means of ruling in the Golden State’s favor.  Because being overturned by the Supreme Court is the 9th Circuit’s favorite pastime.

California Governor Jerry Brown, who has spent the last 7 years turning his state into a third world country modeled on Venezuela, denounced Sessions’ move, in the process revealing his state’s strategy in fighting the case.  Brown stated at one point that the case would “last longer than the Trump Administration,” which, if his lawyers engage in delaying tactics, could certainly be the case should Trump not win re-election in 2020.  In the meantime, absent further enforcement actions by the federal government, California just gets to keep engaging in its sedition actions on behalf of the MS-13 gang and other illegal immigrant criminals.

One possible further enforcement action for Sessions to take would be to start charging California officials, like Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf, with criminal violations.  Ms. Schaaf, who called Sessions a “racist” after he had announced his lawsuit, was directly responsible for the escape of hundreds of known criminals last week during an ICE roundup of criminal aliens in her area, when she tweeted out a warning about the operation 24 hours in advance.  This is clearly obstruction of justice, and if Sessions really wants to change behavior by California’s outlaw office holders, conducting a few televised perp walks of people like Ms. Schaaf being hauled off to jail in handcuffs would be a great way to start.

Narrative failed?  Double down on the narrative. – In the wake of their narrative of a Texas “blue wave” having failed miserably in Tuesday’s Texas primary elections, the fake news media and Democrat-leaning elections analysts like Charlie Cook did what Democrats do:  they doubled down on the narrative.

Cook, who cited “a lot of evidence” that a blue Texas wave was forming, despite the fact that GOP turnout for the primaries was 50% higher than the Democrat turnout, said  “It’s the Democratic tidal wave versus the Republican seawall.  At this point, my bet is that in House, the wave is bigger and stronger than the wall, but in the Senate, my money is on the wall not the wave.”  Yeah, ok.  Cook also predicted that Hillary Clinton was going to easily be elected to the presidency in 2016, so there’s that.

The Democrats, meanwhile, continued to cling to their hopes of a blue wave by repeatedly pointing out that their total turnout was just over 1,000,000, the first time that had happened since the 2002 primaries.  None of them went onto mention the inconvenient fact that, in the 2002 general elections, their party lost every statewide election in Texas, with Republican Rick Perry prevailing over his extremely well-funded opponent, Tony Sanchez, by a 58-40 margin.

As for Cook’s claim that the Democrat “could” hope to move three of the state’s 36 congressional seats from Republican to Democrat, even that is highly suspect.  Of the three vulnerable Republicans Cook cites – John Culberson, Pete Sessions and Will Hurd – only Hurd would seem to be in real jeopardy.  That is not at all surprising, given that Hurd represents a district that runs from San Antonio all the way to El Paso, one which most observers think is a slightly Democrat-majority district.

Hurd in fact defeated a Democrat incumbent to win the seat in 2014, and barely defeated that same Democrat to win re-election in 2016.  Were that district to flip back to the Democrats in this election, that would not be a “blue wave”, that would simply be the normal course of business.

But hey, stories discussing the normal course of business don’t generate Internet clicks or TV audiences or newspaper sales the way a narrative about a “blue wave” coming to Texas does.  Right?  Right.

Just another day in the Texas Blue Wave is clickbait America.

That is all.

There Won’t Be Any “Blue Wave” In Texas This Year

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Tired of all this Losing yet? – Buckle your seat belts, it’s gonna be a rocky few days – and maybe more than that – on the stock markets.  The resignation of President Trump’s Chief Economic Adviser, Gary Cohn, pretty much ensures that.  Cohn’s resignation creates uncertainty in the direction of economic policy, and if there is one thing investors hate more than anything else, it’s uncertainty where policy is concerned.

Cohn announced he will be leaving in a few weeks after the President made the decision to move forward with tariffs on steel and aluminum against his adviser’s wishes.  Or at least, that’s the stated reason.  It seems more likely that Cohn, a globalist Democrat fish out of water in this administration who has frequently clashed not only with President Trump but with several other senior advisers and cabinet officials, decided this would be a convenient time to make his exit and get back to making gobs of money with Goldman Sachs.

After all, it isn’t as if Cohn had been overruled on matters of economic policy on a regular basis.  Plus, it isn’t as if Mr. Trump’s plans to levy such tariffs were any big secret when Cohn took the job.  Trump made that explicit promise time and time again on the campaign trail during 2015 and 2016, and we’ve all seen that he is pretty much laser-focused on keeping such campaign promises.

If Cohn really is so thin-skinned that not getting his way on one issue is enough to make him decide to quit, then he probably needs to go back to hanging out with fellow liberals anyway.  No word yet on who the replacement might be, but putting together a list of candidates who actually support the Trump “America First” program might be a good place to start the search.  After all, that’s another promise the President made throughout his campaign:  No time like the present to start keeping it where his chief economic adviser is concerned.

Democrats in action. – Jihad supporter and ironic “women’s” march organizer Linda Sarsour was arrested at the U.S. Capitol building yesterday.  The radical anti-Semite was hauled off with several of her jihadist friends on charges of “civil disobedience”, whatever that means.  The group had refused to leave when asked to do so by Ryan’s staffers, insisting they be allowed to meet with the Speaker ahead of others who actually had appointments to see him.

The subject these jihadists wanted to meet about?  DACA.  That’s right – they wanted to meet about the DACA “Kids” (Average age:  26), who are in this country illegally, an issue about which Sarsour literally has no skin in the game whatsoever.

Think about the literal perfection of this incident:  A bunch of leftist radicals insisting upon jumping the line ahead of people who had played by the rules so they could meet with the Speaker in support of a bunch of illegal immigrants who insist upon jumping the immigration line ahead of thousands of others who are playing by the legal immigration rules.  If you pointed that irony out to Sarsour, she wouldn’t get it.  She is a Democrat, after all.

That “Wave” still looks pretty darn Red in Texas. – Hey, remember all that talk over the last couple of weeks about a “Blue Wave” supposedly coming to Texas, as a supposed “record” number of Democrat voters turned out during the early voting period for the primary elections that took place on Tuesday?  Remember how the state’s Democrat Party had supposedly finally gotten its act together, how the Ds were actually fielding living human being candidates in all of the state’s 36 congressional races, how Democrat “rising star” Beto O’Rourke was going to beat Republican Ted Cruz in the U.S. senate race?  Yeah, that was just yet another fake news media-generated myth.

That myth was generated by media outlets like the Dallas Morning News and the web-based Texas Tribune looking only at early voting numbers coming in from the state’s big cities, where Democrats tend to do their best in a state in which their party has not won a statewide election since 1994.  Turns out that when you look at the voting totals from the entire state, including all those rural areas where Republicans dominate, the results from yesterday’s primaries look pretty similar to how they’ve looked for the past quarter of a century.

Per the Texas Secretary of State’s official election returns, Democrat turnout was just 6.79% overall, despite the record number of early votes.  As is always the case with Texas Democrats, they just don’t show up to cast votes in person on Election Day.  Meanwhile, GOP turnout was 10.10%, and the total votes cast in statewide races for Republicans out-paced the vote totals for Democrats by roughly 1.5 million to 1.0 million.

If those ratios hold firm come November, they translate to basically the same 60/40 GOP advantage in statewide races that the Republicans have won every four years since 1994.  In other words, there won’t be any “blue wave” coming to Texas, or anywhere else for that matter, come November.  But hey, you can’t blame the fake news media for giving it the old college try – that’s what they think they’re in business to do.

God Bless Texas.

Just another day in the only wave in Texas is a big ol’ red one America.

Whining, Drunks and Prostitutes – How Much Lower Will CNN go to Keep its Collusion Narrative Alive?

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Tired of all this Winning yet? – We’ve all been wondering how it is that Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel, the single most incompetent law enforcement officer ever put on public display, still has his job.  Perhaps we should wonder even more about Jimmy Kimmell.  Why does this clown keep getting invited back to host the Academy Awards Ceremony?  It was bad enough that the ratings for last year’s program came in at a 9-year low.  But Sunday’s 2018 version of the ceremony completely collapsed, coming in at 16% below last year’s terrible ratings, a whopping 41% down from 2014, and reaching an all-time low.  Maybe, just maybe, this year’s ratings will convince the organizers of the event to hire a host next year who is an entertainer, rather than just another social justice warrior.

Little Jimmy’s in time-out, and he doesn’t much like it. – My daughter, who is a wonderful mother, has three rules for her two precious daughters:  No whining, no whining, and noooo whining!

Poor little Jimmy Acosta, CNN’s preening fake reporter assigned to the White House, broke all three of those rules on Monday.  The man who wants to be Sam Donaldson without having to put in all that hard work or adhere to those pesky ethics isn’t getting enough attention from White House Spokesman Sarah Huckabee Sanders, and wanted to let her know about it.

After Acosta’s shouted question at Ms. Sanders as she wrapped her daily press briefing went unanswered, he tweeted “Third press briefing in a row that @PressSec did not take a question from CNN. ” before rushing to the nearest CNN camera so he could whine on-air about not being the center of attention.  This guy must have been a real handful for his mother when he was a toddler.

Sanders, as always keeping her sense of humor about the petulant bunch of nitwits she must deal with every day, responded on her own Twitter account with  “Courage isn’t taking “a question from CNN,” Jim. Courage is combat veterans Sgt. Peck and Staff Sgt. Dwyer – the two heroes at the briefing. “, which is about how you’d expect any good mom to respond to a whining 3 year-old.

So, what was the burning question to which Little Jimmy thought the world needed an answer?  “Do you expect the Justice Department to enforce all subpoenas, Sarah?”  Seriously, that was the question Acosta had shouted at her.  It’s like asking if all paint will dry or whether all Democrats and CNN reporters will lie – of course the Justice Department will enforce its subpoenas.  Why send subpoenas out if you’re not planning to enforce them?

It’s not about #courage, Jimmy, it’s about #irrelevance.  And whining – it’s about the whining.

The Nunberg Chronicles. – But Little Jimmy wasn’t the guy who made the biggest fool of himself in the nation’s capital on Monday.  No, that award has to go to former Trump campaign adviser Sam Nunberg.  Mr. Nunberg spent the entire day submitting himself to a series of progressively more incoherent and embarrassing interviews on CNN and MSNBC, as either he had more and more to drink, or some sort of chemical imbalance became progressively worse.

The main thrust of Nunberg’s ramblings began as defiance  against the abusive process being employed by Special Counsel Robert Mueller, who is using his office to destroy numerous people’s lives, forcing them to incur huge legal bills as he vainly casts about for something to hang on President Trump.  Nunberg, who has been subpoenaed to appear before Mueller’s grand jury, repeatedly claimed he would refuse to do so, until late in the day, when he hinted that he might cooperate after all.  That was during a happy hour-timed interview with CNN’s fake host Erin Burnett, who told Nunberg during the interview that she could smell alcohol on his breath.

Nunberg denied he’d been drinking, which may be true, but no one believed him.  He might want to reconsider that denial, because when you think about it, the least damaging explanation he has available to somewhat excuse his behavior is that he had a couple of martinis over lunch and said a lot of stuff he didn’t really mean.  All other possible explanations just become progressively worse.

Back to CNN, the fakest of all the #fakenews outlets has actually sent reporters over to Thailand to interview a prostitute from Belarus who claims to have information about collusion between the Trump campaign and the Russians during the 2016 campaign.  This move came after CNN spent several days referring to the woman as a “Russian prostitute”, indicating that the fakest #fakenews outlet doesn’t even know that Belarus is not, in fact, Russia.

The fake journalists at the fakest #fakenews outlet apparently consider this prostitute to be “credible” because she was once photographed with a big Russian muckety-muck who once had a meeting with former Trump campaign adviser Paul Manafort.

The truth, of course, is that CNN will resort to literally anything in order to keep its Trump/Russia “collusion” narrative alive, because that’s the deal the fakest #fakenews outlet has with the Democrat Party.  And if that means interviewing alleged drunks on-air, whining incessantly at the White House press spokesman, or sending fake reporters halfway around the world to interview prostitutes, why, that is what CNN will do.

Just another day in CNN is all fake news all the time America.

That is all.

#NeverTrump Loyalists are Social Justice Warriors, Too

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Tired of all this Winning yet?  Part I – Some food critic at the fake news website Vice issued a tweet on Sunday that said “Why is Brooklyn Barbecue taking over the world?”  The tweet was accompanied by a photo showing three strips of dry-looking brisket, a couple of pickles, and a small roll.  Everyone at thousands of barbecue joints all over Texas just laughed.  These New Yorkers are so cute.

Tired of all this Winning yet?  Part II – Working over the weekend, the Florida Senate rejected a bill that would ban an ill-defined category of “assault weapons,” in spite of the 3 week-long fake news media assault on guns.  In their next action, the senators passed a bill that would authorize specially-trained teachers to carry firearms in the state’s public schools.


Thousands of Mini-Mes would be far preferable. – Michelle Obama told an audience last week that she has no plans to run for president herself, and would rather spend her time “creating thousands of ‘mes’.”  That is “me”, plural, as in thousands of Michelle Obamas.  As in thousands of imperious, self-absorbed women running around America forcing school children to eat a tiny sliver of rubbery chicken breast and 3 wilted leaves of spinach for lunch.  As in thousands of imperious, self-absorbed women who have never been proud of their country.  As in thousand of imperious, self-absorbed women who pose for the most awful First Lady portraits in American history.  It would almost be better to take the risk of her running for President instead.

Speaking of imperious, self-absorbed people, thousands of climate scammers suffered yet another setback over the weekend when it was announced that scientists had recently discovered a super-colony of 1.5 million Adelie Penguins thriving in the warmest part of Antarctica.  This is a sub-species of the flightless bird that climate scamm…er, “scientists” have spent years trying to convince everyone was endangered thanks to “global warming.”  Given that this super-colony of the birds was discovered in literally the very warmest part of the frozen continent, all these climate scammers are gonna have to find a new scam.

They would have spent the evening protesting the public sexual exploitation of scantily-clad actresses while surrounded by sexually-exploited, scantily-clad actresses, but then they wouldn’t have near as much fun at the after-parties. – Hollywood’s depraved glitterati spent much of the Oscars ceremony Sunday evening bad-mouthing the right to carry firearms, especially “assault weapons,” in a venue that was surrounded by more than 500 security personnel carrying firearms, including “assault weapons.”  What, you expected self-awareness from the collection of nitwits who last year gave you Baywatch and Mother!?

There is no statute of limitations on SJW outrage. – Actor Gary Oldman got his #MeToo moment on social media right after he accepted the Academy Award for Best Actor, as social justice warriors on Twitter and Facebook dredged up allegations by his wife from 2001 in which she claimed he hit her with a telephone receiver (from an old-style, corded phone) several times during a domestic quarrel.  Entertainment Weekly critic Dana Schwartz wailed “was Gary Oldman a secret agent sent to ruin my evening, and possibly my life?”  None of the 20-ish SJWs issuing those tweets even knows what a telephone receiver is, but they’re pretty sure using one to hit your spouse is a bad thing.  And if you’re living a life that can be ruined by the wrong guy winning an Oscar, you are living a sad life indeed.

#NeverTrumpers are SJWs, too. – Joe Cunningham, one of the big contingent of Trump hating “conservatives” at the website Red State, issued a hilariously stupid screed attacking the President titled “This is what happens when a President is all talking points and no substance.”  Cunningham’s diatribe comes less than a week after the Heritage Foundation announced that the supposedly substance-devoid POTUS has already accomplished 64% of his policy agenda in a little over 13 months in office.  Red State is what happens when hubris and envy overrule common sense.  In case you hadn’t already figured it out, #NeverTrumpers are the SJWs of the political right:  always certain of their righteousness, and always wrong about everything.

Just another day in #NeverTrumpers are social justice warriors too America.

That is all.

The Biggest Problem with Sheriff Israel is that he is So Common

The Evening Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

The trouble with Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel is that he is so damn common in our society today:  Arrogant, utterly incompetent and judged in his job based on “metrics” that have little to do with actually getting his job done.

In a really fine piece in Sunday’s Orange County Register, Carl Cannon condemns the Sheriff’s pathetic excuse-making in the wake of the shooting:

The Broward Sheriff’s Office resorted to its own bureaucratic gobbledygook, telling reporters that none of his behavior “appeared arrestable under Florida law.” This is false. It’s not legal in Florida to hold a gun to your mother’s head, or menace the family that took you in, or threaten to shoot up a school. Authorities could also have pursued an involuntary commitment to a mental facility under Florida’s “Baker Act,” which might have given him the psychological treatment he needed and seems to crave. It also might have made him ineligible to legally purchase firearms.

Of course, Israel actively avoided arresting the Parkland shooter despite having his officers called to the kid’s home an amazing 39 times in the 3 years leading up to the mass shooting, precisely because of the metrics used to judge his performance.  Those metrics required the crime rate among high school aged teenagers fall each year in order to maximize the federal money coming into the county’s schools and sheriff’s department, as part of an agreement they’d entered into with the Obama Administration’s Justice Department.  Israel’s department had accomplished that goal by simply refusing to enforce the law:  thus, his job performance was judged by those metrics to be outstanding.

The truly sad thing about Israel is that he really meant it last week when he told CNN’s Jake Tapper that he had provided “amazing leadership” in his job as Sheriff.  Hey, his job performance had been judged to be outstanding as all that federal money came pouring in – what else would he believe?

The hapless, witless Sheriff is hardly alone.  Our society is filled with glorified bureaucrats like Israel posing as law enforcement officers while responding to the perverse incentives set up by the idiotic edicts coming down from Washington, DC.  Our public and higher education systems are also filled with similar perverse incentives, with teachers and administrators forced to spend more and more of their time fulfilling tasks designed to maximize state and federal money rather than actually educating our children.  Common Core and standardized testing are just two of hundreds of examples that have led to the steady diminution of the quality of education in our society.

This is no surprise:  This is in fact the classic outcome of command-and-control socialism.  The more nationalized the school curriculum and law enforcement objectives become, the less accountable the people implementing them will become to the local public.  It is in fact inevitable that hapless men and women like Sheriff Israel will increasingly become the familiar faces of our nation’s sheriff’s departments.

Sheriff Israel is not the cause of what took place three weeks ago in Parkland, Florida – the FBI was every bit as hapless and every bit as much to blame as they respond to their own perverse incentives – he is just one of the effects of the nationalization of the goals and objectives of local law enforcement.

The biggest problem with Mr. Israel is that he is just as common as a day’s laundry in America today.

That is all.

Why Does Anyone Watch The Oscars Anymore?

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Tired of all this Winning yet? – President Trump appeared at the Gridiron Dinner in Washington last night, and told a series of hilarious jokes that the audience, filled with about 90% humorless, hate-filled liberals from the fake news media, didn’t catch.  That’s ok, because the joke, as usual in this Administration, is on them.  Here are a couple of my favorites:

“As I’m sure you’ve seen, we’re now riding very high in the polls, which is hard to believe considering I never get any good press. But, I just hit 50 in the Rasmussen poll. A lot of people said I wouldn’t be able to do so well after losing my so-called chief strategist. But somehow, we’re still doing great without Omarosa.”

“You, The New York Times, are an icon. I’m a New York icon, you’re a New York icon. And the only difference is, I still own my buildings.”

And finally, “It might be hard for you to believe, but I do love gatherings like these. They give you a chance to socialize with members of the opposition party, it’s very important. And it’s also great to see some Democrats here also.”

Everyone there from CNN just kept looking at each other after each joke, saying “what does that mean?  I don’t get it.”  Exactly.

Speaking of gatherings filled with humorless, hate-filled liberals who want to destroy this country,The Academy Awards Ceremony is tonight, and the producers of the show, Michael DeLuca and Jennifer Todd, lied to USA Today on Saturday, telling the fake newspaper that host Jimmy Kimmel’s monologue will not be “pointedly political.”  Anyone who believes that, please shoot me a note, because I have got a hell of a deal for you on some real estate I can’t get rid of.

In all seriousness, why does anyone watch the Oscars anymore?  I mean, unless you are a part of the sexually abusive and depraved Hollywood community, or just some mindless progressive who actually identifies with fundamentally brain-dead, preening, self-absorbed nitwits in general, of course. Other than those people, who else wastes 3-4 hours of their time watching these people honor themselves?

If you’re a grown damn man, why watch?  Are you just a horndog who wants to see which young actress sporting a #MeToo or #TimesUp pin shows up wearing the least amount of clothes?  Are you truly interested in seeing whether or not some movie nobody saw called The Shape of Water beats out another movie nobody saw titled Call Me by Your Name?  Do you really give a damn whether or not Meryl Streep wins her 22nd Oscar, or whatever it is?

How about you ladies out there – why are you watching, given that the community honoring itself this evening has over the last 6 months been starkly revealed to ravenously hate every single one of you?  What possible entertainment value are you going to derive out of seeing a lifelong womanizer like Warren Beatty hand out the Best Picture Award?  Is it just to see whether or not he and Faye Dunaway can get it right and announce the movie that actually won this year?  And I know you aren’t tuning in to see what the guys are wearing, because guess what – they’re all wearing the same thing!  It’s a black tux – they’re all going to be wearing a black tux!  That’s what they all do.

Really and truly, folks, there are just so many better things to do with your time tonight.  As a public service, here is a list of just a few of those things:

– Give your cat’s litter box a good cleaning.  Mittens deserves better than what you’ve been giving him, trust me.

– Binge watch network TV’s best new show of the current season, Kevin Saves The World (We Think).  I’m not kidding, it is really hard to understand how such a charming, hilarious, grounded show made its way into the lineup of one of the three major networks.  If you haven’t been watching it, tonight’s a great time to start.

– Spend time with your kids, if you’re a parent, or with your grandkids if you, like me, are a grandparent.  It will do you some good.  Might even do them some good, too.

– If none of those options work for you, at 8:00 Central time, get onto iHeartRadio and tune into AM 740 KTRH in Houston, where you will find a little radio program that yours truly appears on every week called “In the Oil Patch.”  There won’t be any half-nekkid women or un-funny comics taking shots at President Trump, but you will learn something you didn’t know about energy, I promise.

Just another day in don’t watch the Oscars America.

That is all.
