Saturday Scattershooting While Wondering What Ever Happened To That Democrat Talk About Gun Control?

Today’s Campaign Update 

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

  • Those words are offensive!!!!  uh, except when I use them… – Florida Democrat Congresswoman Clowny McPartyBarn announced late Friday that she would not be saying anything further about President Trump’s call to a Gold Star mom that Ms. McPartyBarn secretly listened in on.  Possibly that’s because she’s just tired of all that darn media attention, but that would be like believing Harvey Weinstein went into rehab because he was just tired of all that darn forced sex.  More likely it’s because video has emerged showing Cong. McPartyBarn using the exact same language at a memorial for policemen who were killed in the line of duty that she claims offended her when it was used by President Trump in his call to the bereaved mother.  Whatever, given her shameless attention-seeking nature and lack of a single redeeming personal quality, we can be sure that we will see Cong. McPartyBarn back on TV before the weekend is out.
  • Democrats in the wake of the Las Vegas Massacre:  We need more gun control!  Guns are the problem!  We must ban guns!!!!!!!!

[Democrats get bad polling numbers on gun control last weekend.]

Democrats this week on the topic of gun control:  ….

  • Speaking of the Las Vegas massacre, what in the world is going on with that “investigation”?  Las Vegas Metro Police Department Sheriff Joe Lombardo, who was so anxious to get before the cameras on a very frequent basis during the first week following the shootings, did not hold a single press briefing this week.  Are we really to believe that an entire week has gone by with no significant new findings in the matter?
  • What about the fake national news media, which has dropped this story like a rock in favor of spending 23 of 24 hours each day interviewing a congressional circus clown?  The obvious answer to this question is that the fake news outlets see that this story is not favorable to their Democrat clients, because the public does not favor gun control and because it is likely the shooter was radicalized by ISIS or some other Islamic terror group.  So they focus on nonsense.
  • Can’t report that, Bob, it doesn’t fit the narrative. – The same is true of the new revelations in the whole Russia Uranium story this week.  To its credit, the very liberal publication The Hill has now run three extremely well-documented, meticulously-sourced stories that contain a series of smoking guns implicating Hillary Clinton, Bill Clinton, Eric Holder and possibly Barack Obama himself in what was clearly a classic play for pay scheme.  So obviously the major networks, CNN, the WaPo and the NYTimes are going to studiously ignore this story for as long as they possibly can.  That’s what they do, and they will only be dragged kicking and screaming into giving this scandal the major attention it deserves if Attorney General Jeff Sessions actually does his job and starts forming up grand juries and issuing indictments.
  • In case you missed it – and it would have been easy to do with all the media attention focused on Cong. McPartyBarn – the U.S. military, in just 9 months under President Donald Trump, has managed to pretty much eradicate ISIS in Syria and Iraq, something Barack Obama refused to even try do to in eight long years.
  • Also in case you missed it, the do-nothing United States Senate actually did something!  Yes, I’m not kidding, the GOP majority in the Senate somehow managed to hang together – with the lone exception of Rand Paul, who hates pretty much everything – and pass a damn budget!  Holy cow, break out the champagne.  Of course, John McCain probably only voted ‘yes’ because he thought he was actually voting on a resolution to impeach Donald Trump, and Mississippi Sen. Thad Cochrane thought he was in a shopping mall in Dubuque, Iowa, but hey, whatever works!
  • Of course the bad news is that the budget passed by the Senate has a projected deficit of …wait for it…$666 billion!  That’s never a good sign, according to Revelations.  Then again, maybe Mitch McConnell can get the anti-Christ to help him keep his wayward GOP caucus members in line when it comes time to vote on tax reform.  I mean, it’s not like he’s never done a deal with the Devil before, right?  Like I said, whatever works.  Go for it, Mitch!

Just another day in whatever works America.

That is all.

The Russia Uranium Story Is A Chance For Our Useless Attorney General To Finally Step Up To The Plate

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

  • Our thus-far useless Attorney General Jeff Sessions will likely finally be put on the spot today, as he testifies before the Senate Judiciary Committee.  Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley is expected to question Sessions about his knowledge of a Russian bribery scheme that took place during the early Obama years, and involved kickbacks to government officials and massive Russian money going to the Clinton Crime Family fake Foundation, along with millions of dollars in “speaker’s fees” to former President Bill Clinton.
  • The payoff for the Russians was, of course, the awarding of a federal permit to buy Uranium One, a company that controls about 20% of U.S. uranium assets, by a Russian firm in which Vladimir Putin owns an interest.  The approval of that permit was made by what the Obama Administration called the Committee On Foreign Investment in the United States (CFIUS), on which both Attorney General Eric Holder and then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton were members.  Imagine that.
  • We’ve all known the basics of this scam for years, but assumed that James Comey’s FBI and Holder’s Justice Department simply looked the other way and allowed then-Sec. Clinton to coordinate all this money laundering with impunity.  But it turns out that the FBI actually did investigate this matter during 2009-10, and found criminal wrongdoing before Holder and likely then-President Obama put a halt to it.
  • All of that and more is contained in a story broken on Tuesday by reporters John Solomon and Alison Spann for The Hill.  Grassley apparently became aware of this situation last week, and sent letters to all relevant federal agencies who had members on CFIUS, demanding they produce documentation that would indicate whether their representative on the committee had knowledge of this FBI investigation when they voted to approve the sale of Uranium One to Russia.
  • Grassley, who is famously plain-spoke when he is angry, had this to say about the matter on Tuesday:  “It has recently come to the Committee’s attention that employees of Rosatom were involved in a criminal enterprise involving a conspiracy to commit extortion and money laundering during the time of the CFIUS transaction.  The fact that Rosatom subsidiaries in the United States were under criminal investigation as a result of a U.S. intelligence operation apparently around the time CFIUS approved the Uranium One/Rosatom transaction raises questions about whether that information factored into CFIUS’ decision to approve the transaction.”
  • It is into this breach that our thus-far useless Attorney General steps today.  Mr. Sessions has to this point very conveniently recused himself from anything having to do with Russia – because he had a meeting with the Russian Ambassador during the presidential campaign – as a means of facilitating his reluctance to deal with all of the rampant lawlessness that took place during the Obama Administration.  It is this baseless recusal that led to the appointment of Special Counsel Bob Mueller, and to the continued stonewalling of several congressional investigations and court cases by the FBI.  While many conservatives who support President Trump – myself included – were excited about the Sessions appointment when it was made, he has turned out to be one of the most disappointing hires made by this President.
  • While the fake news media – other than The Hill – are doing their best to ignore this story, given that it involves wrongdoing by so many of their Democrat heroes, today is actually a very pivotal moment for the Trump Administration.  If Mr. Sessions continues his posing as having a reason to recuse himself from Russia matters, even as they have absolutely nothing to do with the Trump presidential campaign, then that should be cause for the President to fire him and replace him with someone who really is interested in doing this job.
  • What this story shows us clearly is that the entire “Russia Collusion” fantasy play foisted on the public by the Democrats, the fake news media and willing Republican sympathizers in congress since last November is nothing but another classic case of Clintonian projection strategy.  The Clintons – and the Obama Administration – were involved in collusion with the Russian government throughout Hillary Clinton’s time as Secretary of State, and, when Trump won the election, knew that all of this would likely come to light.
  • The Clintonian strategy in situations like this has always been to get ahead of such revelations by accusing their opponents of the very same kind of wrongdoing first, in order to divert public attention away from their own actions.  The real collusion here has been between the Clintons, the Obamas, the fake news media and swamp-dwelling Republicans who have facilitated their projection strategy, even to the point of creating a special counsel to investigate the fantasy.
  • Today is Jeff Sessions’ chance to prove his is up to the job he’s held since February.  I’m looking for a reason to think he will prove worthy of the task, but am having a really hard time finding one.  We’ll just have to wait and see.

Just another day in Russia Collusion America.

That is all.

Harvey Weinstein Is Not A Joking Matter

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

  • Yesterday morning I told you that the Clinton Crime Family Foundation was not going to give up one thin dime of the quarter million it received from disgraced former Hollywood high muckety-muck Harvey Weinstein.  As if like clockwork, by the day’s end, a spokesman for the big slush fund tweeted that – guess what? – not one thin dime of Weistein’s hush money would be returned or given to a real charity.  And hey, if you’re the Clintons, why pretend to be anything other than the clawing, grasping, money-hoarding sleazebags everyone knows they are?  It’s gotten them this far, the fake news media will cover for them, and a week from now this will all be as forgotten in the national consciousness as the death of Vince Foster.
  • Speaking of Harvey Weinstein, it appears to me that the nation reached “Peak Weinstein” over this past weekend.  The clearest indicator of that reality is the edict in pop culture that you cannot joke about Harvey Weinstein and his crimes.  Un-funny late night TV host James Corden, with whom I am so unfamliar that I had to google his name to get the spelling right, found this out the hard way when he was lambasted in social media and later, the legacy media for telling a bunch of not funny Weinstein jokes during a gig hosting a charity event Saturday evening.
  • After Actor/Producer/Director Rose McGowan led the Twitter-based roasting of Corden, the comic issued a formal apology for his offending remarks.  Given that Ms. McGowan alleges that she was raped by Weinstein and then black-balled by his Hollywood sex offender support group that pervades Hollywood’s debased culture, it’s easy to see why she and other women who Weinstein abused during his 30-year reign of terror don’t think any of this is a laughing matter.  That seems pretty obvious, doesn’t it?
  • Welllllllllllllllll, not if you’re veteran sportscaster Al Michaels, apparently.  By the time Micheals went on the air Sunday night, the Corden controversy had been swirling for a good 20 hours, but he must’ve missed the NBC memo about the whole dust-up.  Or maybe NBC’s management didn’t sent out a memo, assuming their sportscasters wouldn’t be making on-air jokes about a big Hollywood muckety-muck’s travails, preferring instead to focus on things like maybe which team had the most attention-seeking players taking a knee for the national anthem.
  • But no, Michaels decided it would be really cool right in the middle of the game to compare the week the New York Giants had had to Weinstein’s week, to which his more-alert partner Chris Collinsworth responded with about six seconds of radio silence.  Yikes.  Naturally, Michaels then obviously got his memo from higher-ups at NBC, and soon after the broadcast ended he also issued a formal apology for telling a stupid joke about a subject that is not funny.
  • So, a note to all you comics and aspiring comics out there, longing to whip out your repertoire of Harvey Weinstein jokes:  Stop.  Just stop.  Nothing about what Harvey Weinstein did is funny.  Oh, there is tons of irony in this situation, as it applies to Hollywood’s larger depraved culture and to all the Democrat politicians – especially anyone named Clinton or Obama – who are desperate to find ways to keep Weinstein’s hush money, but none of this is funny.  Women were raped here, abused in heinous ways, their careers and lives destroyed by an out-of-control monster who everyone in Hollywood knew about for years and did nothing to stop him.
  • What the Weinstein scandal is, is tragic.  The most tragic aspect of it is that Weinstein is far from the only monster out there, and in fact most likely is just a representative of an overall culture of abuse that probably will be allowed to continue to exist as the fake news media, which is desperate to shift the public’s attention off of its Democrat benefactors who bathed in Weinstein’s money, moves on to other, faker news.
  • Thus, within a few weeks, it will most likely be business as usual for all the harassers, rapists and pedophiles who dominate Hollywood culture, and the average American with the attention span of a field mouse will go right back to paying six bucks for a 64 oz. Diet Coke while watching mediocre films at their local cineplex.
  • That, friends, is no joking matter.

Just another day in short attention span America.

That is all.

STEER: A Business Model That Works

It was great to be able to write this issue’s cover feature on the South Texas Energy & Economic Roundtable (STEER) and its outstanding staff, including President and CEO Omar Garcia. Watching the organization have so much success has been very rewarding, since I played a minor role in its creation back in 2012; and writing the piece provided a chance to reflect on the STEER business model and why the oil and gas industry should try to replicate it in other parts of the country.

By late 2011, it had become obvious to everyone that the Eagle Ford Shale was a world-class resource that represented an unprecedented opportunity for economic development in South Texas. Shortly after a lunch during which I and a group of colleagues talked about how best to go about protecting this opportunity, I got on a conference call with the Haynesville Shale Operators’ Committee (HSOC). This coincidence of timing was what spurred my involvement in the germination of STEER.

HSOC was the brainchild of the Louisiana Oil & Gas Association (LOGA) and its President, Don Briggs. Created during the height of the development of the Haynesville Shale natural gas development, the organization served as an extremely effective voice for the industry in what was at the time the busiest shale development region of the country. The challenge the Haynesville Shale presented to LOGA was its concentration in the northwest corner of the state, hundreds of miles from the state capital of Baton Rouge, where LOGA’s offices were located.

Rather than have its staff constantly travel back and forth between Baton Rouge and Shreveport to help its members address community and regulatory issues, LOGA came up with the model of establishing a committee within its organizational structure that essentially functioned as a separate trade association. To become members of HSOC, companies paid separate dues, and the committee itself had its own separate staff.

To further distinguish HSOC as a separate entity, the HSOC staff seldom became engaged in the single most crucial role of any state trade association — lobbying the state’s legislature. Instead, HSOC focused on helping members with community and media relations, functions that have not traditionally been strong points for the industry’s legacy associations.

The model worked. HSOC was a tremendous asset for producers, the media and communities in the region, all of whom needed an honest-broker intermediary to help understand and communicate with one another.

Seeing no reason why this model wouldn’t work just as well in South Texas — where the sudden, massive growth in oil and gas activity was very predictably creating lots of friction and challenges in the local communities — I took the idea to Rob Looney, then-President of the Texas Oil & Gas Association (TXOGA), one of the industry’s largest trade associations, headquartered in Austin. My involvement ended there, since I had a conflicting role with one of the industry’s national trade associations at that time.

The NFL Can Never Go Back After Kneel-Down Sunday

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

  • The NFL commits Hari-kari – So, President Trump went off on the NFL coddling its players who refuse to stand for the national anthem on Saturday, and in return got an entire weekend filled with progressives and fake journalists defending players who disrespect our nation’s flag.  As a bonus, he got incompetent NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell and numerous NFL team owners stupidly doing the same thing, as the number of players showing their unpatriotic feelings multiplied prior to Sunday’s games.
  • Have fun with that. – One can only wonder when Goodell and these owners will suddenly wake up and realize that they have made their league, whose fan base is made up mostly of patriotic, middle class, blue collar Americans, the center of the universe for disrespecting the American flag and our national anthem?  Will they ever come to understand that, now that they have sanctioned this “kneel-down weekend”, they can never go back?  The NFL is now a wholly-owned subsidiary of the unpatriotic American political left.
  • Maybe he can fill his stands by offering Ellen’s fans gift bags from L’Oreal and Chelsea’s fans bottles of Stolichnaya – But hey, Ellen Degeneres and Chelsea Handler tweeted that they were watching the NFL games yesterday, so Goodell’s got that going for him.
  • Call it Baiting With the Progressives – I’m thinking next the President should go off on Josef Stalin, so we can have a full week of progressives and fake journalists defending Stalin.  Then he could do Mao, then Hitler, then Che Guevara, make it a weekly thing, sort of like Dancing With The Stars.  The President could then finish it all off by issuing some negative tweets about Satan, so we can have a week of progressive/fake journalist Satan defending.
  • Hey, there’s an idea! – Honestly, if President Trump went off on carbon monoxide, progressives and fake journalists would hook a hose up to their car exhaust and breathe it for a week.
  • Four years from now they’ll be electing an Imam, not a Chancellor – German voters continued their nation’s march down the path of cultural suicide, re-electing open borders lunatic Angela Merkel to a fourth term as the country’s chancellor.  Merkel’s party only received 33% over the overall vote, but in Germany’s parliamentary system, that is enough to get her another four years during which she can continue turning her country over to Islam.  From the outside looking in, it is easy to see the German frog is being boiled by Ms. Merkel and her globalist regime, but the frog never realizes it is being boiled until it is too late.
  • Time to kill this story – The shooter in a Sunday morning attack on a church in Antioch, Tennessee has been identified as a 25 year-old immigrant from the Sudan named Emanuel Kidega Samson.  You will never see another report about this incident, in which one innocent person was murdered and seven others injured, in the fake news media, because it doesn’t fit their narrative.
  • Keeping up with the 2020 competition – Sen. Ted Cruz told an audience at Austin’s Texas Tribune Festival on Sunday that he can’t support the Graham/Cassidy Obamacare reform bill “right now”.  Hey, you didn’t really think Sen. Cruz was going to let Sen. Rand Paul take all the spotlight from the “muh principles” sector of the Republican base, did you?
  • Perhaps in response to specific concerns expressed by Cruz and Paul, Senators Cassidy and Graham announced they will introduce a revised version of their bill on Monday.  Yeah, that should work out.
  • Back to the NFL:  Pittsburgh Steelers Coach Mike Tomlin attempted to remove his players from the whole controversy, having them remain in the locker room until after the anthem was through being played.  This was a perfectly respectable approach the matter, since it has never been unusual at football games at any level for the anthem to be played before the teams take the field.  But Tomlin failed to account for the feelings of one of his players.  Alejandro Villenueva, a former Army Ranger, separated from the team so he could show his respect for the anthem and the flag he had fought to preserve during his three tours in Afghanistan.  Tomlin and several of his coaches, to their undying credit, stood at attention on the sidelines while the anthem was being played.  This is an intelligent and respectable approach to the issue that should have been emulated throughout the league.
  • Too late now.

Just another weekend in Roger Goodell is a moron who is destroying his game America.

That is all.

Hollywood Is Dead, And That’s Great For America

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

  • If you tuned in to yesterday’s Campaign Update, you know that I warned you all that this new Jennifer Lawrence vehicle titled “mother” was going to be Hollywood’s next big stink bomb.  Lo and behold, just a few hours after I posted that piece, film critic Rex Reed – who has got to be about 150 years old at this point – published his review of this flick, which he calls the worst movie of the year, possibly of this century:   “This delusional freak show is two hours of pretentious twaddle that tackles religion, paranoia, lust, rebellion, and a thirst for blood in a circus of grotesque debauchery to prove that being a woman requires emotional sacrifice and physical agony at the cost of everything else in life, including life itself.” That, my friends, is a stink bomb.
  • Pity poor Rex, though:  I knew the film was going to suck just from reading the director’s statement on how he derived its plot;  Mr. Reed had to sit through the atrocity before he could pen his review of it.  So I definitely got the best of this deal.
  • Hollywood as we have known it for the last 100 years is dead.  It is dead because it is now an industry filled by empty people who have never had an original thought in their entire lives.  It is dead because these empty people are no longer able to turn out films to which the common man can relate, because these empty people have lost all ability to relate to the common man.  It is dead because everything turned out by Hollywood today is entirely derivative of something Hollywood has already turned out before (thus, last year’s inexplicable remake of Ben Hur; thus, this year’s 6th or 7th installment of Pirates of the Caribbean), and because the impulse by these empty people to fill their works with leftist political lectures robs their derivative works of all possible entertainment value.
  • Jennifer Lawrence is kind of cute.  She can sort of act.  Nobody gives a flying rat’s ass what she thinks about climate change or race relations.  People want to buy tickets to movies that entertain them – which explains why any cartoon film with Minions in it will do spectacular box office – not to films that lecture them.  If people want to be lectured, they can go pull up any random YouTube video of Hillary Clinton promoting her new book.  Note to Hollywood:  Nobody does that.
  • Hollywood as we have known it is dead, yes it is.  It survived for years thanks to America’s seemingly insatiable appetite for mindless blockbusters based on mindless comic books.  The box office for those blockbusters enabled leftist, anti-American producers to continued doling out millions of dollars to leftist directors to produce unappealing, box-office disaster films filled with leftist propaganda starring modestly-talented, sort of cute leftist actors.
  • But those days are gone.  America’s appetite for mindless comic book blockbusters has run its course, and Hollywood has suffered through two straight record summer box office disasters the last two years.  When even The Rock is no longer a guarantor of box office success – as with this summer’s disastrous remake of Bay Watch – you know the goose that has laid all these golden eggs is running out of steam.
  • It’s not just movies, it’s television, too.  There was a time when Norman Lear could make a sitcom filled with liberal propaganda, and 25% of the American public would be standing around water coolers and break rooms the next day talking about what Maude or Archie Bunker had to say the previous evening.  Now, if a sitcom attracts 2% of the public for an audience it has had a gigantic night.
  • Hollywood has lost its influence because its little bubble-contained culture became completely antithetical to the real American culture over the last 40 years.  Ordinary Americans became sick of having their values lampooned and sensitivities insulted at every turn, and gradually began to realize they could change the channel or simply quit paying to see these awful flicks at the theaters.
  • This is all a great thing for American society.  It means our culture is generally healthy, because a culture that rejects obvious scams and blatant disregard for common values is a culture that remains strong at its base.
  • The strongest sign of the health of America’s core culture came this week when Tuesday night’s benefit show headlined by a broad array of Hollywood leftwingers managed to raise $14.5 million for hurricane relief.  That same evening, George Strait, the all-American country singer, held a separate event along with a few of his fellow country singers and raised $20 million.  Meanwhile, the all-American football player J.J. Watt has managed to raise more than $31 million all by himself.
  • There is a message for Hollywood leftists in all of that, and that message is that ordinary Americans are sick of you clowns.  The fact that a film like mother even got made tells us that Hollywood has not received this message.  And I’m cool with that.  You should be, too.

Just another day in dying Hollywood America.

That is all.

Employee Claims Google Is A Religious Cult; In Other News, Water Is Wet

Today’s Campaign Update 

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

  • A current employee of Google told a reporter for Breitbart that the tech giant is “run like a religious cult.”  Well, welcome to the world of progressivism, in which everything is treated like a religious cult, complete with texts filled with dogmatic nonsense (such as gender is not determined by biological factors), forced, non-natural behaviors that, if violated result in group shunning and ridicule (“climate deniers”), and forced denial of truth (hey, maybe that deal with Iran wasn’t so great after all).
  • The latest allegation comes fresh on the heels of the controversy over Google, Inc’s having fired an employee who wrote a 10-page memo lambasting this employer for its failure to address its epidemic diversity issues.  True to religious cult form, the employee wasn’t fired for what he actually wrote in the memo, but for what fake news media outlets falsely alleged he had said in the memo.  This classic hive behavior is a hallmark of American progressive behavior, and Google, Inc. is just a small part of that hive.
  • For those unfamiliar with the term “hive behavior”, it’s really pretty simple:  whenever a bee becomes injured and infirm, its fellow bees make no effort at rehabilitation – that would, after all, require sentient thought or at least an instinct for caring – but rather systematically and rapidly force the debilitated bee from the hive.  It also describes the manner in which a hive filled with thousands of bees all react exactly the same way in unison to outside stimuli.
  • We see these behaviors in progressives all the time.  If you’re not willing to simply parrot everything Al Gore claims about the environment, even though literally nothing he claimed in his first film has turned out to be true, you are shunned as a “climate denier”.  If you criticize Maxine Waters for the obvious fact that she is a mean-spirited, raging dimwit, you are shunned as a “racist”.  If you voted for Donald Trump because Hillary Clinton is an obvious career criminal, you are shunned as a “sexist”.  If you try to engage any progressive in a fact-based discussion on any issue, all you will invariably get in return is a rote recitation of whatever Rachel Maddow had to say about it on her TV show the night before.  Oh, and name-calling, lots and lots of name-calling.
  • In other words, if you aren’t willing to suspend simple acknowledgement of the reality all around us in your daily life, and if you base your views on key issues on that reality, logic and facts, you are, to the progressive hive, literally a heretic who is to be shunned and demonized.
  • So, yes, Google is run like a religious cult because the management at Google is uniformly made up of progressives.  The same is no doubt true at other tech giants like Facebook and Twitter.  If you accept a job at one of these firms, and you find yourself unwilling to simply recite the dogma and act in unison with the hive, you will soon be identified as “damaged”, as the writer of the 10-page memo was, and very quickly removed.  The hive made no effort to defend its employee, or to rehabilitate him – doing those things, after all, would require adherence to the truth and actual caring about his well-being.  Regardless of what his memo did or did not say, the employee violated Google’s religious dogma, the first tenet of which is obviously that “Google is unfailingly good”.  Once he did that, he was damaged goods.  Plus, he’s apparently a white male, an unprotected class, which made his swift removal laudable among the company’s army of mindless, hive-dwelling Social Justice Warriors.
  • Progressivism is a religious cult.  Once you accept that basic reality, it all begins to make sense.

Just another day in religious cult-ridden America.

That is all.
