Kurt Schlichter’s Hollywood Doom Prophecy Is Already Taking Place

Today’s Campaign Update 

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

  • Kurt Schlichter, who has become the most provocative and frankly most enjoyable conservative opinion writer working today, penned a piece on Thursday titled “Politically Correct Hollywood Is Doomed.”  In the piece, he hilariously imagines the release of a series of films with politically correct themes and titles like Xe-Day, and Dirty Harriet, in coming years, all of which would miserably fail at the box office.  It’s highly recommended reading – it will be five minutes well-invested, trust me.
  • Turns out, though, that we don’t need Mr. Schlichter to make up imaginary films that fail miserably at the box office:  As the Wall Street Journal points out this morning, Hollywood is already cranking such duds out at an amazing pace, and theater owners are beginning to panic.  This summer’s box office take was down 5% compared to 2016, which wasn’t much of a year to brag about, either.
  • Of the season’s projected blockbuster action flicks – which included the execrable Johnny Depp slouching through yet another rehash of Pirates of the Caribbean, for crying out loud – only Wonder Woman can be termed a smashing success, as it grossed over half a billion dollars in the U.S. alone.  But that female super-hero flick was more than offset by tankers like King Arthur: Clash of Swords (grossed just $39 million on a budget of $175 million) and a horrific remake of The Mummy (grossed just $69 million in the U.S. on a budget of $345 million), which inexplicably starred Tom Cruise and Russell Crowe.
  • People in Hollywood appear to be mystified as to why their films aren’t making as much money as they used to, but they’re all morons who have no understanding of any American who lives outside of their tiny bubble, so we should expect nothing else from them.  The corporate suits who run the big theater chains appear equally mystified, but again, that thing about morons in bubbles applies.
  • Because of that lack of understanding, we can rest assured that Hollywood will continue cranking out action “blockbusters” that no one really wants to see (Like, we really needed yet another remake of The Mummy?  Who demanded that?), un-funny comedies whose “humor” trends more towards depravity and disgust with each passing year, and “dramas” that have no relevance to the lives of any American who does not live in Hollywood or New York City.  Meanwhile, Hollywood’s real, most obvious problem will go un-addressed.
  • What is that obvious problem, you ask?  Ok, guess it’s not that obvious after all.  Look, the film industry’s most obvious problem is that its major stars can’t keep their silly, dim-witted mouths shut on issues of politics and morality.  No American who lives in the 95% of the country outside of Hollywood and Manhattan needs to be lectured about politics by the likes of Meryl Streep.  No one out here in flyover country has any desire to take morality advice from Lena Dunham or the mentally deranged Ashley Judd.  We neither want nor need nitwits like Will Ferrell or Matt Damon lecturing us on the presidential or congressional races, nor do we desire advice on environmental matters from the likes Leonardo DiCaprio, who has a carbon footprint roughly equal to that of Rome, Italy.
  • The constant drumbeat of leftist political claptrap coming out of Hollywood amounts to a withering, unending assault on the sensibilities of half of the American population, perhaps more.  You want to know why the Academy Awards ceremony this year had the second-lowest ratings in the program’s history?  This is why.  You want to know why nobody wants to see Russell Crowe or Tom Cruise in The Mummy?  This is a big reason why.  You want to know why the ratings for the late night talk shows are a fraction of what they were 30 years ago?  This is why.
  • The average American wants movie stars to shut up and act, singers to shut up and sing, directors to shut up and direct, script writers to shut up and write, and producers to shut up and produce.  But of course, Hollywood is made up almost entirely of desperate, grasping attention-seekers, so that’s never going to happen.
  • The inevitable result will be a complete revamping of the Hollywood film industry model in coming years, as the industry continues to become less profitable.  A decade from now, all the big box theater chains will be out of business, most if not all films will be immediately available on pay-per-view, and the industry will bear little resemblance to what exists today.
  • We don’t need Kurt Schlichter to imagine all of that for us, because it is happening right before our very eyes.

Just another day in Shut Up And Act America.

That is all.

North Korea Rattles Sabres, Liberal Heads Explode. S.O.P.

Today’s Campaign Update 

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

  • It’s what they do; it’s who they are. – Well, U.S. intelligence agencies have determined that the Crazy Little Fat Guy (CLFG) over in North Korea now has the ability to deliver a nuclear warhead on his ICBMs, and liberal heads exploded all over America’s fake news media and the social media space.  No, they didn’t explode at the news that CLFG has deliverable nukes – that would be far too sensible.  Nor did their progressive heads explode with anger at former President Bill Clinton for his horrible 1994 deal with Pyong Yang that set the wheels in motion for this to happen, nor at George W. Bush and Barack Obama for fecklessly allowing the situation to fester for the last 16 years, joining Clinton in happily passing the buck off to the next guy.
  • No, liberal heads exploded because President Donald Trump said the following in response:  “North Korea best not make any more threats to the United States. They will be met with fire and fury like the world has never seen… he has been very threatening beyond a normal state. They will be met with fire, fury and frankly power the likes of which this world has never seen before.”  But let’s be honest:  President Trump could have sung the lyrics to “Hey, Jude” or recited the Gettysburg Address and gotten the same response.  If he opens his mouth, liberal heads are going to explode.
  • My first question about this whole episode is why should we trust the word of our intelligence agencies in their assertion that CLFG is now a threat to the U.S. mainland?  These intel agencies have consistently demonstrated beyond any doubt that they are not trustworthy, and frankly, that they are not patriots.  Their constant stream of leaks and false narratives over the last 7 months has severely hampered the ability of this President to govern the country, intentionally so.  These agencies are not staffed with patriots, they are by and large staffed with skunks and snakes, the worst sort of DC swamp creatures who leak classified information and put others’ lives at risk for their own self-aggrandizement.  There is no reason whatsoever to worry that Denver is in danger of being vaporized by North Korea based on the words of this collection of seditionists.
  • Indeed, the expressed threat yesterday from Pyong Yang was aimed at…wait for it…GUAM, which happens to be the nearest U.S. territory to North Korean shores.  Not Los Angeles, not Seattle, not Anchorage, not even Honolulu.  Guam.  Given his pretty consistent past behavior, it seems logical to believe that, if CLFG really had the ability to threaten a major U.S. city with his nukes, he’d be directing his threats there.  I mean, c’mon, threatening the tiny island of Guam is like kicking a kitten.  CLFG won’t get any street cred for that.
  • Bottom line here:  If you’re losing sleep in your bedroom in Texas over this intel-agency alleged threat, you’re most likely making yourself drowsy over nothing.
  • Interestingly, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov was the cool head in the room on Tuesday, advising everyone to remain calm.  Go figure.  Lavrov correctly pointed out that this kind of sabre rattling is how Pyong Yang has always responded to escalating sanctions from the UN (which were agreed upon over the weekend):  “Strictly speaking, this is how representatives of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea have reacted to all previous U.N. Security Council resolutions,” he said, “We will judge by their actions.”
  • Of course, were Trump to agree with Lavrov, Rod Rosenstein would immediately appoint another Special Counsel to investigate, and Wolf Blitzer’s beard would sprinkle to the floor at CNN headquarters.

Elon Musk Is A Very Creative Crony Capitalist

Today’s Campaign Update 

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

  • Elon Musk is a very creative guy.  We all know it, and often admire it.  He’s the guy who’s going to colonize Mars, the guy who’s going to roof your house with solar shingles and pave highways with solar pavers.  He’s also the guy who is now bringing us the Tesla 3 electric motor car, his new, more compact and sporty model for which he claims to have already received 500,000 orders.  It’s all so wonderful, and his giant PR operation issues about 27 press releases a week bragging about his every move.  Well, ok, not quite every move.
  • Here’s what Elon Musk’s thousands of PR agents never brag about:  None of his very creative ideas work without very heavy government subsidies.  The fact is that his various ventures in the United States alone have already brought him more than $5 billion in government subsidies, a legacy of the crony capitalism in which the Obama Administration was so heavily engaged.  That amounts to about half of Musk’s personal net worth, and those subsidies are the only reason his car company has been able to eke out “profits” in just 2 quarters during its entire existence.  Indeed, buyers of Teslas in the U.S. receive a big subsidy check from the federal government – the subsidy for the new Tesla 3 is $7500 – and also received state subsidies from taxpayers in many states.  California’s state subsidy (because of course California has a taxpayer subsidy for this stuff) is $2500, meaning that preening celebrities like Leonardo DiCaprio can make themselves feel better by buying a Tesla, and enjoy a gift of a total of $10 grand from middle class America.  Cool, right?
  • Musk is facing a growing backlash over all his very creative rent-seeking endeavors, but the simple fact is he has to have the subsidies to remain in business.  For proof of that assertion, all one need do is observe Tesla’s experience in Hong Kong this year.  Tesla had sold thousands of cars the first three months of this year, when the Hong Kong government had a large subsidy in place, but when that subsidy was eliminated at the end of March, Tesla received a total of ZERO orders for its cars in Hong Kong during April.  No subsidies, no sales, and pretty soon, no company.
  • So, if you are so inclined, go out and get your Tesla soon, while the subsidies are in existence and the company is still in business.  But don’t buy one in Texas – Texas offers EV subsidies through auto dealerships, but no subsidies for the factory-direct Tesla, which does not do dealerships.  Go to California and make the taxpayers there foot part of the bill for your awesome new car.  They’ll enjoy it – they’re used to being screwed by their state’s government.
  • Sen. Manchin thinks he’s the Honey Badger.  Honey Badger don’t give a s–t, either. – Ok, West Virginia Democrat Senator Joe Manchin has now gone full nitwit.  He’s obviously been given the party’s polling data indicating that Democrats can now cuss their way to re-election, data that has led Senators like Kirstin Gillebrand and Al Franken, along with DNC Chairman Tom Perez to go on cursing sprees all over the country in recent months.  Here’s what Manchin said in an interview with the Charleston Gazette:  “I don’t give a s–t, you understand? I just don’t give a s–t,” he said. “Don’t care if I get elected, don’t care if I get defeated, how about that. If they think because I’m up for election, that I can be wrangled into voting for s–t that I don’t like and can’t explain, they’re all crazy.”  Democrats really do believe this is an effective strategy to attract votes from Millenials.  I suspect, though, that Millenials don’t give a s–t about it.  Just a guess.

Just another day in don’t give a s–t America.

Can We Get That Whole CalExit Deal Moving A Little Faster?

Today’s Campaign Update 

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

  • If we didn’t have Democrats, we’d have to make them up.Ok, I swear I didn’t make this up.  It’s a real story.  The far, far, far, far left wing of the far, far leftwing California Democratic Party is mounting a recall effort on their own Assembly Speaker because…wait for it…he isn’t far, far, far, far leftwing enough for them.  Wait, you say, Speaker Anthony Rendon is as far, far, far leftwing as it gets, right?  Well, no.  See, he needed to add one more “far” to that total of “fars”, and ram through a completely unworkable proposal to implement single-payer healthcare in the Golden State, a bill that would have utterly bankrupted the state’s treasury within a few years.  Of course, the leftist nitwits who pushed this bill and are now taking out their frustrations on the Speaker figure that when the money runs out in their own state, they’ll just petition the federal government to force taxpayers from the 49 other states to pay for their ruinous policies.  It’s the California way, after all.
  • Hey, can we get that whole CalExit deal moving along a little faster? – Speaking of the insanity that is California, CA Congressman Lou Correa is so unhinged that he now displays a painting of the Statue of Liberty wearing Muslim garb in his congressional office.  This isn’t political thought, this is mental illness.  But then, California is the state that gives us Nancy Pelosi and Maxine Waters, so, just par for the course, really.
  • At long last, this is what you’re sorry for having done?Caitlyn Jenner apologized to her dozens of fans for having been photographed wearing a “Make America Great Again” cap.  Of all the millions of things Caitlyn Jenner owes an apology for, wearing a cap of any kind is not among them.
  • Well, that’s a damn shame.Reuters reports that the Justice Department is not looking to charge journalists for knowingly releasing leaked classified information to the public.  Because no Republican can be counted on to do the right thing anymore.  Sad!
  • I am shocked, shocked to see temperatures falling in Australia! – I reported a couple of weeks ago about the scandal in Australia over the Bureau of Meteorology’s (BOM) effort to “revise” the national temperature data there to invent “global warming” where none is occurring.  Graham Lloyd at The Australian is now reporting that, now that BOM has been caught and forced to properly record actual temperature data rather than make it all up, temperatures Down Under are suddenly plummeting.  Go figure.  No one could have seen that coming!
  • Let the good times roll…or float… – Big news yesterday in New Orleans as heavy rains there overwhelmed the city’s utterly inadequate pumping system that is supposed to drain rain water off of city streets.  While the Times Picayune reported this as if it were some rare occurrence, I have personally been in New Orleans three times in the last 20 years in which the same thing happened.  And no, there weren’t any hurricanes coming through at those times.  The simple fact of the matter is that New Orleans – which I love – is 11 feet below sea level on average, and when it rains heavily, the streets are gonna flood.  This is not news, this is an inevitability.
  • Wait.  Is this question serious? Really??? – The mental midgets at Newsweek ran a piece with the following breathless headline:  “WHY ARE MOST POLITICIANS WHITE 52 YEARS AFTER THE VOTING RIGHTS ACT WAS SIGNED INTO LAW?”  Ummmmm…lessee here….hey, could it be because most people in America are white, even 52 years later?  Now we know why Newsweek exists only in bandwidth.  My goodness.

Just another day in praying for CalExit America.

Fisking The Fake News Media – Opportunities Abound

Today’s Campaign Update 

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

  • Well, we now know what occupies this clown’s mind. – After the magnificent NRA spokesman Dana Loesch said the organization plans to “fisk” the NYTimes, fake Times reporter Adam Goldman got on Twitter in a panic and wailed that the NRA wanted to sexually assault his newspaper.  Mr. Goldman admitted he thought Ms. Loesch had said “fist”.  The word “fisk” is a new media term for going through the fake media reports line by line and refuting them.  Odd that the Millenial Mr. Goldman is unfamiliar with that word.  But then, he obviously has other things on his mind.
  • Oh, you’re so sweet… Maxine Waters told the harpies on The View that, “when we finish with (impeach) Trump, we have to go and get Putin. He’s next.”  When faced with blank stares from the harpies, she then fumbled around and came up with the name of “Pence” to identify her next target.  This is who the Democrats call a “leader”.  Maybe Dana Loesch should target Maxine and The View with her fisking next.  Hilarity would definitely ensue.
  • Their Ad should read “Jim Acosta Diaper Hamper For Sale”… – Deadline Hollywood reports that AT&T is contemplating selling off CNN once its acquisition of CNN parent company Time Warner is consummated.  Really?  What self-respecting company is going to want to purchase a fake news channel that can’t beat re-runs of “Bewitched” in the ratings?  Of course, Jeff Bezos and Amazon could always buy CNN, since they’re buying everything else.  A CNN/Washington Post merger would be the fake news equivalent of the merger of Exxon and Mobil Oil.
  • Tired of Winning Yet?, Part I – The Trump economy created 209,000 jobs in July, beating estimates for the 6th straight month, and running the total jobs created since Donald Trump took office to more than 1 million.  The fake news media largely ignored the story, with Twitter going so far as to shadow ban positive tweets about the report.  No surprise here – the Democrats and fake news media know that they must keep the public focused on fake scandals in order to kill this presidency.  Reporting positive economic news is just not part of the narrative.
  • Tired of Winning Yet?, Part II – The Dow gained more than 70 points on Friday, marking the 8th straight day it has closed at a record high.  Given that the Dow has traditionally been a leading indicator of future economic growth, the Democrats and their fake journalist propaganda agents are going to have a great big pile of good economic news to try to ignore in the coming months.
  • Speaking of the Fake News Media, Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced on Friday that he is finally getting serious about identifying and prosecuting intelligence agency and White House employees responsible for the incessant leaking to major fake media outlets.  As part of that campaign to get serious, Mr. Sessions said he is considering issuing subpoenas to offending fake journalists and fake media outlets who rush to print or air classified information. “We respect the role that the press plays and will give them respect, but it is not unlimited. They cannot place lives at risk with impunity.”  Sure is nice to think that someone is finally going to attempt to enforce some accountability on fake journalists who abuse their privileges, but only time will tell if Mr. Sessions is truly serious here.  Hey, maybe Dana Loesch can help – she’s already got the NYTimes trembling at the knees.
  • This really isn’t rocket scienceThe UK Daily Mail reports that investigators are considering the use of lie detector tests as a tool to ID the leakers.  Here’s a suggestion:  apply the first two lie detectors to Susan Rice’s bestest buddy H.R. McMaster and Obama loyalist Hope Hicks, who somehow remains employed in the White House communications department, and see if the leaks from the West Wing don’t dry up completely over night.  I’ll even give you odds.

Just another day in all fake news, all the time America.

John McCain’s Right Mind Has Always Been Wrong

Today’s Campaign Update 

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

  • The Democrat Party left him. – West Virginia Governor Big Jim Justice announced yesterday that he will be changing his party affiliation from Democrat to Republican.  This move is most likely motivated by simple political survival instincts, as Donald Trump won the state in 2016 by an enormous margin over Hillary Clinton.  Justice’s shift means that the GOP now controls 34 of the 50 governor’s offices in the country, and controls both the governorship and legislatures in 26 of 50 states.  This is the legacy of the abuses of the Obama years.  Thanks, Barack!
  • Et tu, Joe? – One can only wonder how much longer it will take WVA’s Senator Joe Manchin to make a similar political calculation.  Manchin is without doubt the most moderate Democrat in the senate today, and would likely vote with the Republicans well over half the time were he left to his own devices and not often held hostage to hardcore partisan politics.  He’d better think fast, since he’s up for re-election next year in what has become one of the reddest red states in the country since his last election bid in 2012, thanks mainly to public reaction against Barack Obama’s aggressive efforts to kill the state’s coal industry.
  • Are we past the Senatorial trading deadline? – Speaking of party switchers, nominally Republican Sen. From the News Media John McCain told the Arizona Republic on Thursday that he is in talks with one party’s senate leader about reviving the whole Gang of 8 Immigration “Reform” (i.e. open borders and amnesty) plan!  Of course, that party leader is Chuck Schumer, not Mitch McConnell.  Hey, here’s an idea, how about the Republicans just offer to trade John McCain for Joe Manchin, and call it even?  At least then, both men would be inhabiting their natural environments.
  • McCain logic 101. – Oh, but the Senator From the News Media wasn’t done.  He also has decided that the whole 16 year ongoing fiasco in Afghanistan is all the fault of …wait for it…DONALD TRUMP!  Yes, Senator, because everything was always great in Afghanistan for the 15 years prior to January 20, right?  My goodness.
  • By the way, if you are sitting there thinking that McCain’s latest bits of mendacity might mean that he is not in his right mind due to his fight against a very aggressive form of brain cancer, think again.  This is McCain in his right mind – it’s just that his right mind has always been wrong.
  • Bloomberg is reporting that National Security Advisor H.R. McMaster has concluded all by himself that Susan Rice is just a wonderful person whose national security top secret clearance needed to be renewed, and taken action to unilaterally renew it himself.  Isn’t that great?  Just further proof that some folks just need firing, and John Kelly needs to get busy.
  • They’re a determined bunch. – A year ago today, congressional Republicans were the single most hated segment of the Washington DC establishment.  They got lucky, though, as the Trump Campaign bailed them out of what otherwise would have been a major defeat at the polls.  But they have squandered that good fortune, and are now, a year later, right back into the same situation, thanks in large part to their refusal to move on the major elements of the Trump agenda.  In its latest poll released yesterday, Quinnipiac places congressional public approval at a record low 10%, down from 18% in March.  It wasn’t easy to squander such a golden opportunity, but it is impossible to overestimate the ability of a bunch of Republicans to screw up a good thing.  Great work, guys and gals!
  • Oh, yeah, and Special Swamp Creature Robert Mueller leaked that he has convened a grand jury so he can start issuing subpoenas now.  The Swamp is intent on taking this President down, and perfectly willing to take the country down with him if need be.  Don’t kid yourselves otherwise.

Just another day feckless Republicans America.

All Fake News, All The Time: This Is CNN

Today’s Campaign Update 

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

  • Jim Acosta voids his bladder at yet another White House Press Briefing, hilarity ensues. –  The Fake News Network’s petulant and preening Jim Acosta provided yet another prime example of why he and CNN should be banned from future White House press briefings yesterday.  As Senior Policy Adviser Stephen Miller was discussing the details of the Raise Act, a piece of legislation that would modify the terms of legal immigration into the U.S., Acosta, without being called upon, constantly interrupted the speaker and engaged him in a debate in which he implied that the poem on the Statue of Liberty is the law of the land, and claimed that implementing a preference for English-speaking immigrants would limit legal immigration to “those from Britain and Australia.”  Acosta wasn’t even fazed when Miller correctly point out that English is the main language spoken in more than 60 nations around the world, and that the poem has no legal gravitas.  Naturally, Acosta appeared on CNN after the press conference and declared victory.  No one else gave him that credit.
  • Their next study will prove Donald Trump has poopy pants. – The Center For American Progress (CAP) announced on Wednesday that it will issue a report today that proves – PROVES, I say – that the Trump Campaign “colluded” with the Russians to interfere with the U.S. election process in 2016.  Fake news outlets Buzzfeed and The Hill reported on the announcement, identifying CAP only as “a progressive think tank.”  What neither of those two fake outlets tell their readers is that CAP was in fact founded by… wait for it…JOHN PODESTA, the goat-sacrificing campaign manager for Hillary Clinton, and that Mr. Podesta remains active in the group’s leadership today.  Fake News at its finest.
  • That make perfect sense, since he’s a been Democrat in practice since at least 2001. – Qunnipiac released a poll on Wednesday that finds that the public approval rating for Senator From the News Media John McCain is 35% higher among his natural Democrat base than it is among Republicans.  What else is there to say about that?
  • Speaking of the title of Senator From the News Media, the junior Senator from Arizona, Jeff Flake, is obviously seeking to succeed his fellow Arizonan in that role.  Flake, a fervent adherent to the idiotic #NeverTrump crowd, has been all over the fake news media this week, shamelessly hawking his new anti-Trump book titled “Conscience of a Conservative.”  Given the book’s copy-cat title, it was perhaps inevitable that Brent Bozell, Jr., the son of the man who was Barry Goldwater’s ghost writer of the huge 1964 best-seller of the same name, would strenuously object to the use of that same title for a book written by a Senator who has a very mixed record of conservatism at best.  “Jeff Flake is not a conservative, nor does he have a conscience,” Mr. Bozell told anyone who would listen.  All of which leads to the inevitable question:  What do the voters in Arizona think about when they go to the polls?  Really, are these two guys the best the state has to offer?  Sad!
  • Hey, it’s not just the media that’s fake – the temperature record is fake, too. – The great James Delingpole reports that Australia’s Bureau of Meteorology has been caught red-handed faking that country’s temperature records in an effort to “prove” the existence of global warming.  The BOM has been systematically erasing record low temperatures, or simply entering them into the record at higher readings than their thermometers actually showed.  The BOM has good company in this endeavor:  Here in the U.S., NASA and NOAA have been systematically “revising” the global temperature records they keep upwards since at least 2010, in an effort to justify the Obama regime’s heavy-handed regulatory actions.  The difference between the two countries is that the Australian news media has actually shamed the people at BOM into going about correcting their defrauded records, while the U.S. fake news media has studiously ignored the scandal.  Because that’s what progressive Democrats with press passes do.

Just another day in Fake News Media America.

Fake News, Real News, And Winning

Today’s Campaign Update 

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

  • Tired of winning yet? – the Dow closed at yet another all-time record high on Tuesday, now approaching the 22,000 level.  It has now risen almost 20% since Election Day.  Second quarter GDP growth – the first full quarter of the Trump presidency – was pegged at 2.6%, equaling the highest growth rate the economy ever saw during Barack Obama’s 8-year regulatory free-for-all.  We should expect to see even higher growth rates as the current administration continues to remove the regulatory shackles from the nation’s industries.
  • Couldn’t happen to a nicer guy. –  Sara Carter at Circa News, one of the handful of real working journalists still active in the nation’s capital, reports that former Obama National Security Advisor Ben Rhodes has been added to the House Intelligence Committee’s growing list of suspects in the illegal unmasking investigation.  Rhodes joins the mugshot lineup that already includes Obama-era luminaries like Samantha Power, John Brennan and Susan Rice.  You may remember Rhodes, who is most famous for openly admitting to an interviewer that the Obama Administration and fake news media regularly coordinated narratives and messages.
  • My God, dude, have you no life at all? – After President Trump used the term “Paddy Wagon” in a speech to law enforcement officials last week, the fake editors at the Washington Post thought it would be a great idea to run a 700 word dissertation by some guy named James Mulvaney about why this “slur” is “insulting…to Irish Americans”.  Mr. Mulvaney, like almost every leftist in the United States, has no sense of humor.  Fair warning to parents of college-age children with law-degree aspirations:  Mulvaney is adjunct professor at John Jay College of Criminal Justice, at least if the WaPo can be believed on that point, which as we have found, is an unsafe assumption at best.  The lesson here is, don’t let your kids attend John Jay College.
  •  Wait, wasn’t Bain Capital the Devil to you guys just 5 years ago? – Don’t look now, but Politico reports that Barack Obama has decided that the Democrats’ best hope to run against Donald Trump in 2020 is…wait for it…wait for it…DEVAL PATRICK!  What’s that?  The name sounds sort familiar but you really have no idea who that is?  Yeah, that’s the point.  For those who, like me, had a hard time recalling exactly who this clown is while reading that story, Mr. Patrick is an ex-Governor of Massachusetts, something that, in addition to being an executive at Bain Capital, he has in common with Mitt Romney.  You remember Bain Capital, right?  That’s the firm that, in 2012, was portrayed by the Obama campaign and the fake news media as representing everything that is wrong with America.  Five years later, it’s no big deal.  But whatever, trust me on this:  If the 2020 Democrat field is made up of 80 year-old communist Bernie Sanders, 74 year-old lifetime criminal Hillary Clinton, 70 year-old fake Indian Elizabeth Warren and an obscure ex-Governor of Massachusetts, the Party might as well not even bother.
  • How did this get into the NYTimes? – Don’t look now, but a member of the editorial staff at the NYTimes somehow slipped an op-ed piece past his colleagues titled “When Progressives Embrace Hate”.  Nevermind, of course, that American progressives have embraced hate since the day American progressives became a thing, this is the NYTimes we’re talking about here.  This is actual (pardon the pun) progress!  The editor, Bari Weiss, writes about 800 words about how awful it is that the organizers of the Women’s March last January included the hate-mongering Islamist Linda Sarsour, and how repugnant it is that this hateful woman continues to be embraced by American progressives.  That’s all true, and it is indeed nice of at least one person on the NYTimes editorial board to finally notice Ms. Sarsour’s true nature, but it’s hilarious that Ms. Weiss thinks this is all somehow a surprise.  Had she been paying any attention at all, she would know that the entire progressive philosophy is based on hate.  But, to quote the great John McClain, “Welcome to the party, pal.”

Just another day in fake news media America.

It’s The Mooch’s World And We’re Just Living In It

Today’s Campaign Update 

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

  • Somewhere, in an alternate universe from hell, Anthony Scaramucci and Megyn Kelly are getting married in a ceremony presided over by Maxine Waters.  Reince Priebus is the best man, Katie Couric is the maid of honor, and Freddie Mercury is belting out “Bohemian Rhapsody”.  I’m glad I don’t live in that universe.  This one is cray cray enough.
  • I hadn’t heard this until this morning, but in addition to a) being hired to do a job for which he had no visible qualifications, b) alienating everyone in the West Wing of the White House during his first 24 hours on the job, c) unwittingly giving the most profane interview in the history of the New Yorker Magazine, d) displaying a level of breathtakingly rank naivete’ towards the real nature of the fake news media, e) getting Reince Priebus fired, f) having divorce papers served on him by his Trump-hating wife, and g) getting not just fired, but forcibly escorted from the White House grounds, all within a span of 11 days, The Mooch’s wife also gave birth to a healthy new baby boy last Monday.  The Telegraph reports that The Mooch was not only not present for the blessed event, he chose to send his congratulations to his estranged spouse via text message.  Hey, at least he didn’t do it with a Tweet.
  • Speaking of adult children, what in the hell is wrong with J.K. Rowling?  The author of the unending series of Harry Potter books took a shot at President Trump a few days ago when she saw a snippet of video in which it appeared that President Trump had failed to shake the hand of a 3 year-old, wheelchair-bound boy at a White House reception.  Ms. Rowling – who has been a serial basher of the President on her Twitter account – wrote “How stunning, and how horrible, that Trump cannot bring himself to shake the hand of a small boy who only wanted to touch the President.”  Of course, it wasn’t horrible or stunning at all, if only one takes the time to view the full video of the reception.  The President had in fact interacted with the boy a few seconds earlier, not only taking his hand, but bending down to hug him and spend time talking with him.  Within hours, literally thousands of Twitter users pointed this truth out to the Rosie O’Donnell wannabe author.
  • Any normal person possessed of the most rudimentary human manners would have had a simple solution:  delete the tweet and apologize to both the little boy and the President.  But not the mighty J.K. Rowling, oh no.  Apparently simple good manners are beneath a fantasy writer of her stature and wealth.  Days went by with no word from the author, despite a building number of reports on her bad behavior in the news media.  Even when the boy’s parents tweeted directly to her that she was wrong and owed them, their son and the President an apology, no response the imperious writer.
  • Finally, a full day after the parents’ plea, Ms. Rowling lowered herself to issue an apology, but only to the boy.  It was only after Politifact weighed in on Monday, giving Ms. Rowling’s tweet a “Pants on Fire” rating, that the fantasy queen finally deleted the offending tweet.  But still no apology to the boy’s parents or the President, whom she was slandering in the first place.  What a creep.
  • Somewhere, in another alternate universe, The Mooch is firing J.K. Rowling and giving her Harry Potter gig to Megyn Kelly.  I’m glad I don’t live there, either.

Just another day in It’s The Mooch’s World And We’re Just Living In It America.

That is all.
