An America Beset By Immature Children Acting Out

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Ok, lessee here….what’s been going on in America over the weekend?

  • Oh, well, we had three nights of rioting in St. Louis because a St. Louis jury acquitted a St. Louis cop who was falsely accused of murdering a St. Louis drug dealer six years ago.  To hear the rioters tell it, this drug dealer was the second coming of Rosa Parks and just the best person who ever walked the sidewalks of St. Louis.  I hadn’t said anything about this because riots in the greater St. Louis area have become such a regular occurrence since Barack Obama’s Justice Department began encouraging them and George Soros began funding professional rioters to create them in 2014 that they barely make a blip on my screen anymore.  They have become tiresome displays of immature children acting out over false outrages, the audience and sympathy for which grow smaller by the day.
  • Speaking of tiresome displays of immature children acting out over false outrages, for which the audience and sympathy grow smaller by the day, the Emmy Awards were handed out Sunday night.  Hosted by the execrable, unfunny late night outrage show host Stephen Colbert, the program predictably became nothing but a 3-hour platform for spoiled children to act out over false outrages, all directed at the President of the United States.  The overnight Nielsons weren’t available as of this writing, but we can be sure the ratings for this star-studded group temper tantrum will be down from last year – when they hit a historic low – and will continue to fall through the duration of the Trump Presidency.  This is what happens when performers go out of their way to gratuitously offend half of their potential audience at every given opportunity.
  • Rumors were flying prior to showtime that Hillary Clinton would make a cameo appearance at the show, but it turned out she was too busy signing books on the toilet paper aisle of her local CostCo to make the gig.  But Kate McKinnon, who played The Most Corrupt Woman in America in Saturday Night Live skits, took her presenting role as an opportunity to thank Crooked Hillary for her “grace”.  Proving, of course, that Kate McKinnon doesn’t know the difference between graft and grace.
  • Never to be left out, the NFL continues to demonstrate it has its own sub-population of immature children acting out, as players like Seattle’s Michael Bennett have now decided that protesting the national anthem just isn’t enough attention-seeking, and have begun taking their “look at me!” stunts onto the field.  Bennett celebrated a sack on Sunday with a single raised fist, the old “black power” salute made famous in the 1960s.
  • In other news that should not be news, pollster John McLaughlin came out with new data over the weekend, warning establishment Republicans in congress that they need to start actually keeping their campaign promises or Trump voters won’t turn out to re-elect them in next year’s mid-term elections.  The great wonder with this news item is that establishment Republicans apparently need polling data confirmation of something that would be obvious to the average third grader.  But this is how dim-witted establishment Republicans are.
  • The McLaughlin survey also found that a large plurality of surveyed GOP voters believe that Republicans in congress are working in opposition to President Trump’s efforts to “drain the swamp”, and fully 63% of GOP voters believe it is time for Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and Speaker of the House Paul Ryan to be replaced.  If any of these results surprise you, you just haven’t been paying close enough attention.
  • If establishment Republicans were intelligent (hah-hah! I’m cracking myself up here!), they would be working feverishly to keep some of those grand promises they all made during their 2016 campaigns.  Instead, they are currently in the midst of an 11-day vacation following just a week of work that came after their month-long August recess.  When they come back next week, they only have five working days left in September before they take their next vacation.
  • What all this shiftlessness and mendacity reminds us of is that there was a very good reason why establishment Republicans in Washington were, just 12 months ago, the single most-hated subset of the DC swamp among the public at large.  Donald Trump’s resurgent presidential campaign bailed them out from what had been shaping up to be a disastrous election cycle in 2016, but that crutch won’t be available in 2018.
  • Unless these layabout GOP dilettantes get their collective act together and start sending promise-keeping legislation to the President’s desk for signing, it becomes more likely by the day that Trump voters will abandon their stinking, er, “sinking” ship in next year’s elections.  Whether that would result in the turning over of one or both houses of congress remains a good question, since the Democrats remain in a state of insoluble disarray, but it all could be avoided by the Republicans’ simply doing some of the things they promised to do.  But this seems to be a bridge too far for McConnell, Ryan and their hapless minions, who obviously view keeping their vacation schedule sacrosanct as their number one duty.

Just another day in immature children acting out America.

That is all.

The Results Of What Happened

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Today’s Campaign Update is very brief.  While President Trump was in the White House conducting all manner of state business on Saturday, The Most Corrupt Woman held a book signing at a table stationed between the bottled water and mega-packages of toilet paper at a Costco in Brookfield, CT.  Both 2016 presidential candidates were right where they belong.

God Bless America.

Ben Shapiro Speaks, Everyone Lives To Tell The Story. Film At 11.

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

  • If you’re looking for Hollywood’s next big box office stink bomb, look no further than Jennifer Lawrence’s latest vehicle, titled “mother”.  Thought by advance critics to be a dramatic character study of modern life, the film is being released with very little marketing or promotion, possibly because the advance critics were wrong.  Turns out, according to its director, the same clown who gave us the leftist climate change lecture, “Noah”, the movie is actually yet another Hollywood leftist lecture on overpopulation and climate change:  “As a species our footprint is perilously unsustainable yet we live in a state of denial about the outlook for our planet and our place on it. From this primordial soup of angst and helplessness I woke up one morning and this movie poured out of me.”  Oh, lovely, can’t wait to go out and pay a princely sum of money to see this train wreck.  Yeah, you betcha, sure.  Holy cow.
  • The Dean of Harvard’s Kennedy School of government rescinded his offer of a “visiting fellowship” to traitorous trans-gender Chelsea Manning on Thursday, as controversy about the invitation had continued to grow.  “I now think that designating Chelsea Manning as a Visiting Fellow was a mistake,” Douglas W. Elmendorf, the school’s dean, wrote in a message released around midnight.  Gee, you think?  I mean, how does such an invitation get extended in the first place?  Is there no process for review above the Dean in Harvard’s management?  Wouldn’t one logically think that extending such an invitation to anyone who actively conspired with our nation’s enemies during time of war would be sort of an automatic “no”?
  • This will no doubt end the matter, since no one in the fake news media will want to ask these tough questions of one of their favored left-wing institutions of higher brainwashing, but that’s a damn shame.  The mere fact that this invitation was extended to one of the grand traitors in our nation’s history ought to be cause for heads to roll, and not just the Dean’s.  But this the world of higher education, where accountability is a concept as buried within the culture as is the concept of free speech.
  • Conservative writer Ben Shapiro, who manages the “DailyWire” blog site, made his scheduled appearance at Cal Berkeley on Thursday, and amazingly, no riots broke out, though two Antifa morons were arrested even before the event began.  To watch the University’s preparations for the event, one would have thought an army of black-masked thugs or something was coming to destroy the campus and its easily-triggered student body, but no, it was just little Ben Shapiro, who sounds exactly like a 30 year-old Richard Dreyfuss, and is about the same size.
  • Boy, what an imposing figure he makes, armed with his speaker notes and wearing his Yarmuke.  Berkeley officials were so concerned about the impact of his words – you know, all that horrible talk about the need to address the federal budget deficit and stop getting involved in wars all over the Middle East, terrible stuff like that – that they had special counseling rooms set up for triggered students and – get this – faculty!  Good lord, even the freaking faculty at Berkeley is now a bunch of pathetic snowflakes.
  • Despite Shapiro’s mild demeanor and not-exactly-imposing presence, Berkeley prepared as if its campus was being invaded by Godzilla, spending more than $600,000 on police presence, and even erecting a concrete barrier around the site of Mr. Shapiro’s lecture – ironic for a school run by opponents of President Trump’s border wall – all on the pretense that Mr. Shapiro’s words, not Antifa thugs, might somehow cause a riot to break out.  The University carried that security charade so far as to actually bill Shapiro $15,000 as a “security fee” to come give a speech on its campus, an event to which he was invited by a student group.
  • This “security fee” tricked worked with Ann Coulter early this year, when she was invited to speak.  In response to receiving that billing, Ms. Coulter pulled out of the event rather than pay the fee.  No doubt, Berkeley officials expected – hoped for – the same response from Shapiro.  But Ben called their bluff, paid the fee, and gave his speech.
  • And guess what happened?  Not much, really, other than the two Antifa nitwits getting themselves tossed in jail.  The speech was extremely well-attended and, other than being interrupted a few times by agitators that University officials infiltrated into the crowd intentionally, came off pretty seamlessly.  About 1,000 protesters gathered outside the hall and chanted dumb chants and carried signs containing idiotic slogans, but that’s what these people do for a living, so no biggie as long as no one gets hurt.
  • Nobody died – indeed, campus police reported that no one was really even harmed – and actual ideas in conflict with the prevailing leftist/communist thought being washed into the students’ brains by the faculty every day were aired in a mostly peaceful atmosphere.  Questions were asked from the audience, and answered by the speaker, and no one passed out or became overly verklempt.  All of that exchanging of ideas took place on a left-wing university campus.  What a concept.
  • Hey, I’m old enough to remember when that sort of exchange of ideas and exercising of free speech on a left-wing college campus wasn’t headline news.  Things change.

Just another day in campus leftism is destroying America America.

That is all.

Welcome To The DC Swamp’s Never-Ending Clown Show!

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

  • What time do Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi arrive? – A group of professional clowns will be holding a rally tonight outside a New York City movie theater where the film “It” is currently showing.  The clowns claim the movie is killing their clown business, with a spokesman for the group claiming he and his partner have had six cancellations in the last couple of weeks because of the film.  No word on who will be manning the anchor desks at CNN, ABC, CBS and NBC while the clown rally is happening.
  • Deal?  Or no Deal? – Speaking of Pelosi and Schumer, they had dinner with President Trump last night, and the discussion obviously centered around what to do about all those poor DACA children (average age, 26) and border security.  Obviously, discussion over a compromise took place, but given the conflicting statements issued by the Democrats and the White House following the dinner, the essential elements of said discussion are very much in dispute.
  • The Democrats issued a statement indicating that a final deal had been cut that would provide additional funding for border security measures – excluding the building of a border wall – in exchange for enshrinement of the DACA provisions contained in Barack Obama’s illegal executive order into law.  The Democrats promised to get to work on legislative language – which they no doubt already have drafted, let’s be honest – posthaste.  Done deal, right?
  • Not so fast, my friend! – Well, not according to White House spokesman Marc Short, who said the Democrats’ statement was – knock me over with a feather! – “misleading.”  “While DACA and border security were both discussed, excluding the wall was certainly not agreed to”, Short said,  “no deal on DACA or border wall $$ was reached tonight.”  So once again, the Democrats got caught spiking the ball before they made it to the endzone, kind of like any random running back for the Cleveland Browns.
  • It’s Twitter time! – For his part, the President naturally waited until 5:00 a.m. to chime in on Twitter about the matter, stating in part, “No deal was made last night on DACA. Massive border security would have to be agreed to in exchange for consent. Would be subject to vote.”  Ok, so, what was that all about, anyway?
  • Well, what it was all about is that this is the obvious general deal to be struck on these two interrelated matters.  The President cannot get the increased border security funding he wants without votes from Democrats, 98% of whom don’t give a damn about border security.  Democrats do give a damn about filling our country with as many third world immigrants as they can, because they view them as future Democrat voters, but they can’t enshrine this 800,000 strong bloc of future DACA voters without votes from Republicans and support from the White House.  They know that DACA provisions do not give the “Dreamers” citizenship or voting rights, but they do allow them to become permanent U.S. residents who can find ways to vote illegally, as happens in Democrat-controlled areas all over the country.  It’s pathetic, it’s un-American, but this is how Democrat minds work.
  • GOP congressional leadership, meanwhile, doesn’t really give a damn about increased border funding either, though they have to pretend to be in order to stave off 2018 primary challengers.  But they do want DACA extended, because the Chamber of Commerce wants as many cheap workers as they can get into this country, so they’re perfectly happy to let the President work out a deal with the Democrats.  They’ll whine loudly about whatever deal is made, just as they did with the President/Pelosi/Schumer deal on budget/debt ceiling/hurricane funding, but then they’ll go out and pass it in a matter of days, again just as they did with the previous deal.
  • Establishment Republicans thus get the best of all sides in any such deal, as they get the policy preferences they want but are absolved of all responsibility for them.  They get to go back to their districts in 2018 and say, “Well, you know, I didn’t like that deal, but (*sigh*), well, the President agreed to it, so I had to just go along,” and hope their sucker constituents will fall for the BS again, just as they’ve fallen for it over the previous three election cycles.  It’s pathetic, it’s un-American, but this is how establishment Republican minds work.
  • So, what last night’s conflicting messages amount to is a preview of the DACA/border security deal to come.  All that really remains to be worked out is to find a way for the President to agree to the deal while saving face on the border wall, which the Democrats will never agree to fund, and which GOP congressional leadership has no real intention of seeking.
  • Again, it’s pathetic, it’s un-American, but this is how Washington DC works.

Just another day in this is how it all works America.

Hollywood Idiots Ruin George Strait’s Noble Idea

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

  • Why do Hollywood leftists have to ruin everything they touch? – My first reaction when I heard that the great George Strait would be putting on a nationally televised hurricane benefit fundraiser was great!  Awesome!  Greatest country music artist ever, native Texan, truly good ol’ boy in every sense of that title, it’ll be a fantastic show and raise a ton of money.  Good for George.
  • But then I saw that he would be joined by notorious cop hater Beyonce’, and I thought, oh, no, here we go.  But hey, Beyonce’ is also a native Houstonian, so I figured she might actually have some real feelings in this game.  So, ok, maybe she’ll keep all the cop-killing symbolism out of this particular performance, and she did.  Good for Beyonce’.
  • But then I saw the execrable Stevie Wonder was going to be included and I slapped my damn forehead.  Holy cow.  This is going downhill fast.  Then the list began to expand to the usual assortment of Hollywood know-nothings (Leonardo DiCaprio, George Clooney), has-beens (Barbra Streisand, Julia Roberts), and malcontents (Jamie Foxx, Robert Deniro) and I knew that what began as a noble effort starring George Strait would now be turned into the classic Hollywood leftist tribute to Mother Gaia that has little to do with helping the victims of Hurricanes Harvey and Irma, and mostly to do with promoting Al Gore’s Global Warming scam.
  • In the end, the celebrities announced their tribute to their Climate Change god had raised $14 million, and traded high-fives.  J.J. Watt, by himself, raised more than $30 million, a total that is still climbing.  Thanks, Hollywood.  Now go scurry back under your kitchen cabinets, and turn out some more really bad movies.
  • Oh, dear God, can somebody please lock this woman in her office for the next year and feed her through a tube?  Please? – Nancy Pelosi, fresh on the heels from a stuttering, stammering, speech-slurring appearance before a gathering of LGBT leaders in San Francisco, placed her public incoherence on display yet again Tuesday evening in Washington, at an event honoring the playwrite of the Broadway hit, Hamilton.  She repeatedly flubbed the name of Lin-Manuel Miranda (there, that isn’t really so hard to say, is it?), referring to him at various points as “Lin-Manuel Madonna”, “Lin-Manual Ramanda” and “Flim-Flannel Hmphfluglebutt”.  (Ok, I made that last one up, but still.)  For those of you who are into self-flagellation, here is a link to the video.
  • This is the worst deal ever!!! It’s terrible!!!!  It’s awful!!!!  It’s the end of the world as we know it!!!!!!!  I vote ‘yes’. – Hey, remember how all the establishment Republicans in DC spent the entire last week wailing that the deal President Trump made with San Fran Nan and Chuckie Schumer was just the worst thing ever and signals nothing less than the end of the Republic?  Remember how they said it was just soooooooooo awful that only a damn fool would agree to it and that they were just going to be back in December, having to address the debt ceiling yet again?  Yeah, none of that was true.
  • The deal was soooooooo awful that it has already been passed by both houses of congress, thus clearing the playing field for congress to spend the rest of this year addressing tax reform.  And guess what?  Most of those establishment Republicans – just about all of them, in fact – voted in favor of the worstest, awfulest, most republic-endingest deal they had ever seen!  Go figure.
  • As for having to come back and address the debt ceiling yet again right before Christmas, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, the leader of the establishment Republican precinct of the DC Swamp, put the lie to that contention, telling an interviewer that, as drafter of that particular provision, he had inserted language that allows the Treasury Secretary to use “emergency measures” to extend the debt ceiling, and that we will be “well into 2018” before congress actually has to do anything with it.
  • All of which proves just one more time that if you believe anything any establishment Republican tells you, you might just be naive.

Just another day in Hollywood Ruins Everything America.

Democrats Will Practice Anti-Catholic Bigotry Unless Shamed Into Submission

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

  • University Leaders Call Out Bigoted Democrats.  Will miracles never cease? – The presidents of Notre Dame and Princeton University wrote scathing letters to longtime anti-Catholic bigot Sen. Dianne Feinstein, after her inquisition of the religious beliefs of a Catholic Trump nominee for the federal bench.  While it is wonderful that these two presidents finally, at long last decided to weigh in against the anti-Catholic, anti-Christian bigotry that has become part of the daily playbook of the Democrat Party on Capitol Hill, it is worth noting that this is nothing new, and that Sen. Feinstein has been plying her bigotry on the Senate Judiciary Committee for decades now.  She is far from alone, carrying on a tradition established long ago by the likes of Howard Metzenbaum, Patrick Leahy and other Democrat Judiciary Committee members going back to at least the 1970s.  So, welcome to the party, gents, but this one has been going on for a long, long time.
  • For those who haven’t read their Constitution in awhile, Article VI is pretty explicit on this subject:  “no religious Test shall ever be required as a Qualification to any Office or public Trust under the United States.”  Any reasonable reading of the history of why this was included in the Constitution reveals that it was put there as a prohibition against the establishment of a state religion.  But Democrats, mainly in their quasi-religious zeal to protect abortion on demand, in modern times have attempted to distort this into a literal prohibition of truly religious people holding public office.  It’s ok for Catholics like Nancy Pelosi to hold high office, because they know she doesn’t really practice the teachings of the Church:  her religion plays no role in informing her public policy postures.
  • In other words, it’s fine to say you’re religious, so long as you don’t live your life that way.  This is the religious test Democrats have been imposing for decades, and it won’t stop until religious leaders and leaders of faith-based universities call it out every time they see it.  The letters from these two university presidents is a good start, and it is worth noting that the U.S. Council of Bishops also weighed in on this latest controversy with a letter of their own.  This is wonderful as a beginning, but if it is just a one-off it will have no long-term effect.  If they want to the practice to end, they will have to police it and call it out every time it rears its ugly head, because the fake news media doesn’t care about it – they actually support it – and isn’t going to call it out.  Democrats like Feinstein have seen too much political advantage accrue from engaging in this practice over the years, and won’t stop unless they know they will be subject to public shaming every time they attempt it in the future.
  • Can we please keep this woman under lock and key until next November? – Speaking of San Fran Nan, I noted last week that President Trump’s deal with Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer virtually ensures that Republicans will have those two toxically unpopular faces of the Democrat Party to run against in the 2018 mid-term elections.  But the limits of that surety could be severely tested if San Fran Nan keeps showing herself to be a doddering simpleton in her public appearances.  She made such an appearance on Saturday before a gathering of San Francisco’s LGBT community leaders, confusing words, uttering garbled sentences, and generally making such a mess of her talk that she found herself having to stop and overtly note which lines were applause lines to her overwhelmingly friendly audience.  It was San Fran Nan in all her awesome glory, and Republicans are praying that glory doesn’t get over-exposed before November 2018.
  • When is a dead battery not really dead?  When Elon Musk is just telling you it is. – Tesla drivers fleeing Hurricane Irma were given a surprise free upgrade, as the car manufacturer remotely “unlocked” the full power of the batteries in the Model S and Model X cars that had been purchased with the 60kWh option.  Turns out those cars actually contained the same 75kWh batteries that others had purchased at higher prices, with Tesla simply limiting how much of that capacity the lower-paying drivers could use.  In other words, prior to the passage of Irma, drivers of the 60kWh models were being told by their cars that their batteries were on the verge of death, when in reality they had plenty of life remaining, if only Tesla hadn’t artificially limited it.  Cost of the “upgrade” – which obviously amounts to checking a box on a web page linked to each car –  prior to Irma?  $4500 to $9000, depending on the model.  I swear I’m not making this up.

Just another day in bigoted Democrats America.

Hillary Continues Her Nora Desmond Act With Jane Pauley as Facilitator

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

  • It’s all your fault, too, Jane. – The Most Corrupt Woman in America sat down for an interview with Jane Pauley on Sunday’s CBS Morning News program, and boy was this a hard-hitting slugfest!  Ok, just kidding.  Ms. Pauley is of course just another fake journalist who openly rooted for Ms. Clinton during the 2016 election campaign.  Plus, the parent company of CBS also owns the company that is publishing Hillary’s latest bit of fiction, so the chances of any real journalism taking place in the interview were roughly equal to the chances of the San Francisco Giants to win this year’s World Series.
  • Question #1:  How much should all Americans hate all Americans for causing you to lose? – No wonder, then, that the interview began with Ms. Pauley literally impaling her self at the altar of Hillary worship with this question:  “So, I’m wondering.  How are you?”  It all went downhill from there, with Ms. Pauley even jumping in to help Her Corruptness expand on her hateful points.  At one point, after Clinton had claimed that Donald Trump had played to the “millions of people who were upset about gains that were made by others,” good ol’ Jane piped in with “…millions of white people…”, to which Senora Corrupcion quickly agreed.
  • If only this could go on forever.  Oh, wait… – Otherwise, the interview amounted to just another opportunity for The Corrupt Woman to whine, act out, point fingers, slander the current President of the United States and basically blame everyone in the known universe – except, of course, her own self – for denying her her life’s rightful conclusion as brutal dictator of the entire world!!!!!!, er, the first female POTUS.
  • In the end, the interview was just a sad chat fest between two relics of the 1990s, a parting gift by CBS to the network’s preferred candidate, delivered by a long-ago has-been who also once thought she should rule the entire world from the anchor desk at NBC’s Nightly News.
  • Ok, who’s stupid enough to criticize the Clintons in public?  You? No.  You?  No.  Hey, let’s get Doug Schoen! – But no matter how pathetic a character the Corruption Queen becomes, she steadfastly refuses to leave the national stage, reminding of no one so much as Gloria Swanson playing the washed up movie queen Nora Desmond in Sunset Boulevard.  Her never ending ‘you all failed me’ tours have become very unproductive exercises for the Democrat Party, whose leadership, such as it is, would like to move on.  Things have become so dire that someone in power convinced long-time Democrat operative Doug Schoen, who worked on The Most Corrupt Woman’s failed 2008 quest for total domination, that it would be a great idea for him to write a piece in The Hill encouraging Ms. Clinton to please just go away already.
  • Dear Hillary: please don’t make me ‘commit suicide’ for writing this, ok? – Mr. Schoen’s piece is actually very pointed, and contains this key paragraph:  “Recently, Clinton was quoted saying that she felt that Trump “was literally breathing down my neck” during a debate, and that she felt “incredibly uncomfortable.” While this generates lots of coverage for her, these anecdotes only distract from the real reasons she lost and the changes the Democratic Party needs to make going forward.”  Hooboy.  Let’s hope Mr. Schoen has kept his life insurance premiums paid up to date.
  • He’s been waiting for this moment for twelve long years. – As Hurricane Irma made landfall on Sunday, the streets of Miami literally were flowing with water.  We can count on Al Gore to include films of this flooding in his next fake climate change documentary, and tell his viewers that this was just a normal Tuesday in Little Havana.
  • Quick, hide the wife and children. – Joe Biden’s daughter, Ashley Biden, told a reporter that her father is “considering” a run for the presidency in 2020, when he will be 76 years old.  Ok, so, who is going to get Schoen to write another piece telling Joe it’s time to shut up and go away?  And what about Bernie?  And Elizabeth Warren?  How many times can the Democrats go to the Schoen well here?

Just another day in the Democrat Party is Dying and There’s No Way to Stop it America.

J-Law Shows Us Why Actors Should Never Go Off-Script

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

  • From our Shut Up And Act files… – Brain-dead actress Jennifer Lawrence, touring the globe promoting her latest sure-to-be box office bomb, told an interviewer on BBC Channel 4 that Hurricanes Harvey and Irma were nature’s way of getting back at America for electing Donald Trump to the presidency.  No, really, she said this – I swear I don’t make this stuff up.  No word from Ms. Lawrence on why Mother Nature is currently intent upon punishing her home town of Los Angeles with the largest wildfires in its history.
  • Why not just give Rosie O’Donnell a prime time gig? – The leftward-tilting of Fox News by Ruppert Murcoch’s two simpleton sons continues, as the network’s 5:00 ET offering called “The Specialists” was unceremoniously cancelled on Friday and replaced by an hour-long news segment anchored by the very oh-so-progressive Shepherd Smith, who wears his political biases quite emotionally each day on the sleeves of his tightly-tailored suits.    But hey, this is just keeping with the program at Fox these days, as even the formerly balanced Bret Baier has lately taken to stacking his nightly panels with virulent anti-Trump talking heads like Guy Benson, A.B. Stoddard, Jonah Goldberg and the super-entertaining Stephen Hayes, who hasn’t been right about anything since the introduction of Apple’s first IPhone.
  • Ok, so, is this one of those “The End of Trump!” events, or one of those “This is Just the Beginning!” events?  It’s always so hard to tell… – Speaking of the #NeverTrump idiot lobby, the temper tantrums from that part of the DC establishment over the President’s deal with Pelosi and Schumer continued unabated through Friday.  Especially entertaining is a piece at RedState.com by Jay Caruso titled “Trump was wrong on the debt ceiling agreement, and he got owned.”   As with everything written about Mr. Trump by every #NeverTrump nitwit over the past 28 months, it is laughably wrong on every point because it was obviously written in a state of witless rage.
  • But the very best part of the whole thing is the closing:  “Don’t get mad that many of us were right about Trump. This is only the beginning.”  Seriously, Jay, if supporters of President Trump had a dollar for every time we have heard those two sentences from NeverTrumpians like you since 2015, we would all be fabulously wealthy people.
  • All that talk about free speech and balanced budgets is just bound to set people off, you know. – In preparation for an upcoming campus speech by conservative pundit Ben Shapiro, officials at Cal-Berkeley have posted notice that the school will be offering “support services” for any campus snowflake who might be upset by Shapiro’s remarks.  The school is silent, however, on whether or not it will offer any similar “support services” for students who will be assaulted and beaten by masked Antifa and other leftist thugs who will inevitably show up and try to cause a riot.
  • Roger Goodell’s solution is to now have TWO months of pink stuff on uniforms instead of just one. – Ratings for Thursday night’s kickoff of the NFL season were down by 13% when compared to last season’s opener, despite the fact that the game featured two of the league’s ten best teams, including the reigning Super Champion New England Patriots.  This of course continues a trend from 2016, as football fans continue to abandon the league in droves due to all the politically correct BS that now pervades its broadcasts and league policies.
  • Yes, because, you know, all Hispanics provide one another lavish vacations via private jets to lush Dominican resorts and appointments with high-end call girls.  It’s just part of the culture, your Honor! – The defense of Senator Robert Menedenez appears to be lurching off into an O.J. Simpson-type of strategy, in which the defense will try to make society the defendant rather than the accused.  This became apparent on Friday, as the Senator’s defense attorney began his defense by arguing that the charges against Sen. Menendez are in fact an attack on Hispanic culture.  The problem for this strategic approach is that the judge in this case appears to be anything but the sad, attention-seeking dupe that Judge Lance Ito turned out to be for O.J.  If this is the best Sen. Menendez’s lawyers have, he is well and truly screwed.

Just another day in Donald Trump’s America.

Trump’s Deal With Pelosi/Schumer Is A Huge Win For The GOP

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

  • Just two and a half months ago, on June 20, Republican Karen Handel defeated Democrat Pajama Boy, er, Jon Ossoff, in the Georgia congressional District 6 special election.  This was to fill the seat left vacant by Trump Appointee and new Health and Human Services Secretary Tom Price.  The fake news media naturally characterized the win by a Republican candidate in a marginally Republican district as an “upset”, based mainly on wishful thinking, thinking that was based on the fake polls their own media outlets paid to create.
  • Georgia District 6 was the fourth such special election held around the country to fill seats left vacant by Trump appointees, and all of the races were won by Republicans.  The narratives in the fake media coverage leading up to every one of those races said that they were not races to fill congressional seats, but rather referenda on Donald Trump, whom the media has portrayed as being historically unpopular, based mainly on…wait for it….you guessed it, based mainly on the fake polls their own media outlets paid to create.  See how this works?  The false narratives practically write themselves.
  • The fake media did wake to an actual truth in the days that followed their Georgia District 6 fiasco, and that is the reality that, in all of those special elections, the GOP candidates ran less against their actual opponents than they did against the ugly, deranged face of the national Democrat Party’s leadership.  More specifically, they ran against San Fran Nan Pelosi, the Democrats’ doddering House Minority Leader.
  • This bitter June 21 piece in New York Magazine is a fine example:  “The clear and consistent focus of the GOP message in GA-06 was to remind the district’s dominant Republicans that Jon Ossoff is a Democrat, and to convince them his mild, centrist persona disguised a monstrous radical leftist who is “not one of us”…again and again Ossoff was depicted as a puppet of Nancy Pelosi and her godless San Francisco hippie allies.”
  • The next couple of weeks were very difficult for Ms. Pelosi, who is barely able these days to put two sentences together in a coherent fashion, as pundits from all locations on the political spectrum came to the sudden realization that her political party really has little chance of regaining power in either house of congress so long as she is available for GOP candidates to run against.  Tim Ryun, a no-account congressman from one of those rust belt states, started making waves about mounting a formal effort to force a vote among the Democrat caucus to replace her, as he has tried in the past.
  • Republicans everywhere held their breath at the prospect that San Fran Nan might actually be replaced by Ryan.  Ryan is every bit the leftist, anti-American lunatic that Pelosi is, but he has a face that looks like a combination of powdered milk and Lumpy Rutherford, and a keen grasp of the English language, so he’d be a lot more difficult to demonize on the campaign trail.
  • But Pelosi persevered, at least for now, staving off her challengers and critics by reminding them that she is a…wait for it…”master legislator” in an interview with one of those Democrat-friendly Sunday Morning show host, which of course means it could have been any of them.  Anyway, that claim is a laughable lie, but if Pelosi knows one thing, it is that Democrats love, love, love being lied to, which of course is why she rose to power in the first place.  So things calmed down for her, but she was far from out of the woods, and many observers have remained concerned there could be more moves to oust her as next year’s mid-term elections approach.
  • So, by now you’re wondering why I am writing about all of this today, and if I actually have a point to make, right?  Right.
  • Well, yes, there is a point.  It’s one I meant to raise in yesterday’s piece about the budget/debt ceiling/emergency relief deal President Trump made with Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, but the drugs I’m taking trying to get over the flu have left me so drowsy I forgot to do so.  And it’s a point pretty much everyone seems to be missing in all of this, especially Republicans, most of whom spent all day Thursday whining about the President making a deal with the devil.
  • The point here is that, by making this deal with Pelosi and Schumer, President  Trump gave them a success story to brag about, propped them up as their Party’s de facto leaders, and thus basically ensured that San Fran Nan and Cryin’ Chuckie Schumer will remain the ugly, deranged face of the Democrat Party through the 2018 midterm elections.  In other words, the best possible outcome for the GOP.
  • When you see people like me talk about Trump playing 4D Chess while everyone else is playing checkers, this is exactly what we mean.

Just another day in Donald Trump’s America.

That is all.
