That Vaunted “Blue Wave” is Going to Become Just Another Democrat Trail of Tears

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Feel good quote of the week. – “John Brennan…needs a very good lawyer…he’s going to be in front of a grand jury.” – Former U.S. Attorney Joe DiGenova, speaking last night on the Tucker Carlson Show.

Why does Donald Trump hate women so?????? – Gina Haspel, Donald Trump’s nominee, yesterday became the first woman ever confirmed to become the Director of the Central Intelligence Agency.  This woman’s nomination was opposed by 2 Republicans and 43 Democrats in the U.S. Senate.

As far as I can tell, the biggest black mark against Ms. Haspel was the glowing endorsement she received from John Brennan.  Certainly does give one pause.

This is in the New York Times so it’s probably fake news, but the fake newspaper of record has a report that big Hollywood muckety-muck agent Jay Sures has recently shopped a new show concept to both CNN and MSNBC.  Sures’ big idea is to create a sort of “Crossfire” reboot pairing up …wait for it…Steve Scaramucci and Michael Avenatti!  That’s right, The Mooch vs. the Creepy Porn Lawyer, a match made in hell.

ummm…No thanks.

Why does the fake news media hate Israel?  Good question, though the answer is pretty obvious. – Harvard Law Professor Alan Dershowitz has a very good piece in the Washington Examiner titled “Why Does The Media Encourage Hamas Violence Against Israel?”

It’s a very valid question, because there is no doubt at all that the American media does this, with its incredibly biased coverage of events involving clashes between Hamas-directed “Palestinians” and the Israeli armed forces.  The latest such event, of course, took place earlier this week, when Hamas sent thousands of armed protesters to try to breach a border wall.

When more than 4 dozen of the “Palestinians” ended up dead, the U.S. media all sang from the same fake hymnal, declaring it a massacre of “peaceful” protesters.  When Hamas later freely admitted that almost all of the dead were in fact armed Hamas terrorist thugs, the American media dropped the story like a hot potato.

The obvious answer to the Professor’s question, of course, is that pretty much every fake reporter, editor and talking head in the American news media is a liberal, and liberals have been taught in American universities to hate Israel with a passion for the last several decades.  This anti-Israel bias bleeds into all their reporting, and you end up with the feeding frenzy we saw on Monday and Tuesday of this week.

The better question is this:  Why do most American Jews continue to vote for liberal politicians, almost all of whom hate Israel, too?  It’s one of the most persistent and maddening aspects of American politics.  Perhaps Mr. Dershowitz, a life-long Democrat, should ask that question of himself.

 

The Examiner also has a report on discussions taking place among the GOP leadership in congress to cancel this year’s month-long August congressional recess:

“Republicans are threatening to keep the Senate open for an extended summer session to process agenda items delayed by Democratic obstruction. But the political benefits of denying incumbent Democrats valuable time on the campaign trail is also factor in the Republicans’ deliberations, and why they appear more willing that usual to give up a treasured annual vacation.”

Before anyone gets too excited about this proposition – which would be an outstanding strategic move – we should all remember that the same discussions took place last year, and the milquetoast Republican leaders ultimately decided they didn’t want to take the media heat they’d receive for actually sticking around Washington and getting the people’s business done.

The wild card this year, though, is the fact that Kevin McCarthy, Steve Scalise and Jim Jordan, the three men competing to succeed Paul Ryan as Speaker of the House, are all more aggressive partisans than Ryan has ever been.  We can hope that pressure from these men might prod Ryan into doing the right thing here, but it is still ultimately a decision that will be made by Ryan and the depressingly non-aggressive Mitch McConnell.

Bottom line:  Be happy if it happens, but don’t go buy any celebratory champagne until it does.

MS-13 is a bunch of sub-human animals – what’s the question here? – After the fake news media uniformly lied about President Trump’s description of MS-13 gang members on Wednesday as “animals”  – dishonestly claiming in unison that the President was applying the pejorative term to all immigrants – Mr. Trump was asked about the matter again at an unrelated White House event yesterday evening.  His answer was not surprising:

“When the MS-13 comes in, when the other gang members come into our country, I refer to them as animals and guess what — I always will,” Trump told reporters”.

Asked and answered.

Given that the Democrat Party and the fake news media are just two elements of a single political apparatus these days, this and other episodes over the last week bring this question to mind:  What does the Democrat Party stand for going into the 2018 mid-term elections?

As far as I can tell, here is the current Democrat Platform:

  • They support Hamas, a group that has been listed as a terrorist organization by the U.S. State Department since the Clinton Administration, and hate Israel, our country’s most loyal ally for half a century;
  • They support MS-13;
  • They support the Crazy Little Fat Guy in North Korea over the American President;
  • They support the Mullahs in Iran over the American President;
  • They’re going to raise your taxes;
  • They favor impeaching the President;
  • They want to de-fund the military;
  • They want to repeal the 2nd Amendment;
  • They’re against freedom of speech;
  • They want to eliminate borders, and thus end U.S. sovereignty;
  • They want to give everyone a job in the government and free college, but have no plan how to fund either.

These are all positions that have been expressed by leaders of the Democrat Party in just the last week.  This is not a winning formula.

That vaunted “blue wave” is going to end up becoming just another Democrat “trail of tears.”

Just another day in it’s all falling apart for the Democrats America.

That is all.

Robert Mueller is Really Desperate to Get Fired

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Robert Mueller really, really, really wants to get fired. – As if we needed any more proof of that reality facing President Trump, Mueller provided more last night, having someone on his staff leak a document to the New York Times which the Times claims contains a list of the questions Mueller is just itching to pose to the President.

According to the San Francisco Chronicle, the questions “relate to possible obstruction of justice, demonstrating how an investigation into Russia’s election meddling grew to include an examination of the president’s conduct in office. Among them are queries on any discussions Trump had about his attempts to fire Mueller himself and what the president knew about possible pardon offers to Flynn.”

In other words, Mueller long ago gave up on the fantasy that there was any “collusion” between the Trump campaign and the Russians, and has been on a 10-month fishing expedition for some evidence that the President himself “obstructed justice”.  Apparently, Mueller considers even a discussion about firing him to be “obstruction of justice”, a prospect so Nazi-like in its concept that it should chill any thinking  American (yes, every one of you non-Democrats) to the bone.

On the other hand, Mueller’s focus on a “crime” that noted constitutional scholar and very liberal Harvard Law Professor Alan Dershowitz has repeatedly said no sitting President can even commit in the firing or contemplated firing of any employee is very encouraging for Mr. Trump.   It conclusively proves that Mueller is holding a gigantic bag of nothing and is attempting to get Trump to fire him in order to provoke a debate in congress over impeachment.

For his part, the President is a little ticked about it all, as he issued the following tweet as I was compiling this morning’s Campaign Update:

Yes, it is quite disgraceful, but it’s also quite transparent in its motivation, and so this tweet should be the entirety of the presidential response to Mueller’s action.

We should also remember here that the President recently brought Rudy Giuliani into his legal team to negotiate an end to this sham investigation with Mueller.  It is likely that Mueller’s decision to leak this list to the media signals some dissatisfaction with the status of that negotiation, and is designed to pressure Giuliani on some point.  Another sign of desperation on Mueller’s part.

But back to the point above about impeachment.  Whenever some seemingly-significant event related to the Mueller sham investigation takes place, it’s always important to keep in mind that, ultimately, that investigation and the seditious conspiracy involving high officials from the DOJ, FBI and the Obama intelligence community leading up to it was always designed to accomplish one of two outcomes:

  • First, to create such a high degree of chaos within the administration during its early days that Trump would be pressured to resign – which is exactly why you saw the most recent season of the Showtime series Homeland end the way it did;
  • Failing in that first goal, the backup goal has always been to build up some sort of a case for impeachment, on the hopes that the Democrats will be able to win a majority in the House of Representatives in the midterm elections.

There is no doubt that the conspiracy to take down a duly-elected president did succeed in at least part of Goal #1:  It did create an amazing amount of chaos within the administration, and its willing participants in the fake news media did create a lot of external pressure on the President to resign.  The fatal flaw in this goal, however, was that the conspirators assumed Trump would react to all of this the same way prior presidents have reacted to the pressure of partisan special counsel investigations:  By panicking and pulling in his sails.

Instead, Trump reacted simply by ratcheting up the pressure from his own end, taking his case to the people, and achieving more notable public policy goals during his first year in office than any president in American history.  Probably 80% of the anti-American legacy of Barack Obama has been repealed, taxes have been massively cut, the economy is booming, and America is once again a true world power on the international stage.

This latest desperate act by Mueller comes at a time when the President’s personal conduct of foreign policy has resulted in the formal end to the 67 year-old Korean conflict, is moving strongly towards the de-nuclearization of the Korean peninsula, is gaining huge trade concessions from our international trading partners, and is about to either significantly reset the horrific, anti-American Obama deal with Iran that endangers the entire Middle East or end the U.S. participation in it.

So Robert Mueller desperately wants to get fired in a last-ditch attempt to create a case for impeachment.

That tweet was great, Mr. President.  Now, just go on about your business of winning the Nobel Peace Prize and let Rudy go about his business of ending the witch hunt.  Today’s a great day.

Just another day in the Mueller gun is out of bullets America.

That is all.

Mueller’s Gestapo Tactics Only Reinforce The Reasons Why Trump Won in 2016

  • This stuff is why Trump is President. – If nothing else good comes of it, Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation is serving as a stark reminder to all Trump voters of why they voted for him.  The President himself reminded the nation on Monday morning that, while General Mike Flynn has been indicted for making false statements to investigators, Hillary Clinton was awarded a free pass by former FBI Director James Comey in July 2016, after she had made a raft of false statements during her FBI interview.  This morning, the Daily Caller reminds us that Clinton’s two senior aides, Huma Abedin and Cheryl Mills also gave heinously misleading testimony to FBI investigators, again with no consequences.
  • Of all the myriad reasons why Trump voters decided in 2016 that the DC Swamp needed draining and Trump was just the guy to do it, this kind of selective application of the law was probably reason #1.  Robert Mueller and James Comey obviously believe that America has a bifurcated legal system – one system for the hundreds of millions of ordinary American citizen rabble out here in flyover country, and another for members in good standing of the Ruling Class, like Hillary, Huma and Cheryl.  This makes perfect sense to Mueller and Comey, since they are the de facto henchmen for that Ruling Class.
  • Those of you who are wondering why it is that the voters in Alabama appear to be set on sending Roy Moore to the U.S. Senate in spite of all the women accusers arrayed against him, it’s mainly because they know that his opponent, Democrat Doug Jones, would go to Washington and become just another reliable lapdog for the Swamp rulers.  These voters know that, whatever Moore may have done back during the Carter and Reagan Administrations, he plans to go to DC to help Trump clean the damn place out.  There’s really no more to it than that.
  • Speaking of Mueller’s absurd Special Counsel “investigation”, it appears now he has completely abandoned any effort at all to investigate the Democrat/fake news media invented fantasy of the Trump camp “colluding” with Russia to influence the election.  Writing in the National Review, Andrew McCarthy, himself  a former federal prosecutor, believes that the Flynn plea deal means that Mueller’s grand strategy now is to build an obstruction of justice case against the President.
  • Given that the President really can’t be prosecuted for obstructing justice, since, as Harvard Law Professor Alan Dershowitz pointed out on Fox News on Monday, he is the chief law enforcement officer of the United States, Mueller’s new focus means he is not working to actually bring charges against President Trump.  Rather, he is working to build a case for impeachment by congress.
  • If that’s really the strategy from the Special Counsel’s office, it simply points up how critical the 2018 mid-term congressional elections really are.  If American voters award control of either house of congress to the Democrats, then our country will literally become paralyzed for two solid years as the hyper-partisan Dems do literally nothing but try to impeach a sitting President for “crimes” that simply do not exist.
  • Another big leftist hope making the rounds of the internet currently is that Mueller may be trying to build a case against Trump for violating the Logan Act, for asking Flynn to make contact with Russia while he was still President-elect.  Here is the relevant text of the 1799 Logan Act:
  • “Any citizen of the United States, wherever he may be, who, without authority of the United States, directly or indirectly commences or carries on any correspondence or intercourse with any foreign government or any officer or agent thereof, with intent to influence the measures or conduct of any foreign government or of any officer or agent thereof, in relation to any disputes or controversies with the United States, or to defeat the measures of the United States, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than three years, or both.
  • Now, here’s why the Logan Act, in its 218 year life, has never, not one time, resulted in a prosecution of anyone:  If you take that text literally, John McCain alone would have been found guilty of violating the Logan Act half a dozen times since Trump took office, and probably 50 times during the presidency of George W. Bush, as McCain has made a frequent habit of making speeches in foreign lands that are highly critical of U.S. foreign policy, but only during Republican Administrations.  Liberal hero Ted Kennedy wrote letters to Soviet Union leaders, actively seeking their intervention in the 1984 elections against Ronald Reagan.  On and on and on this list could go.
  • If Mueller really is working on a Logan Act case, then everyone on the White House should be breaking out the champagne and celebrating, because that cat won’t flush.
  • The bottom line here is that the whole “Russia Collusion” fantasy play is officially dead.  By mounting his incredibly biased, highly-selective “investigation” in such a public way, Robert Mueller is only reinforcing support for President Trump among those who voted for him in 2016.  Mueller has now replaced Mitch McConnell as the official poster child for the movement out here in flyover country to clean out the DC Swamp.  If the President fired him tomorrow, there is not a single Trump supporter at this point who would bat an eye about it, because they know who the bad guy in this fantasy play really is.

Just another day in Ding, Dong, Russia Collusion Is Dead America.

That is all.
