It’s Come to This: Democrats Oppose a Question About Citizenship

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Tired of all this Winning yet? – The Dow closed up 669 points on Monday because traders figured out that – guess what? – there’s not going to be a trade war after all.  Turns out that – for the 10,000th time, dammit – President Trump is not the raging idiot the fake news media portrays him to be, and just as importantly, the Chinese aren’t morons, either.  Both sides realize a trade war is not any good for anyone, and are busily engaged in getting to a renegotiated trade equation with which both nations can live.

As I and many others have continued to point out, President Trump is using the threat of these heavy tariffs as tools for leverage in negotiations.  If everyone can hold off having a nervous breakdown for a few more weeks, we will wake up one morning and find that our country has landed in a much more advantageous trading position with China, Japan and other nations.

Unbridled hubris in action. – Speaking to an audience in Japan, Barack Hussein Obama said he wants to “create a hundred or a thousand or a million young Barack Obamas or Michelle Obamas.”  Think of the massive ego it takes to have doing that as your life’s vision.  Then think of the level of damage a million little Obamas could wreak on our society.  Ok, wait – don’t do that.  You’ll never sleep again.

Is Paul Ryan planning to resign?  After that Omnibus bill, would anybody really care? – Congressman Paul Amodei (R-NV) told reporters on Monday that rumors swirling around the nation’s capital have House Speaker Paul Ryan resigning the speaker’s job “in the next 30-60 days.”  While that wouldn’t come as a complete shock, everyone should take a “believe it when we see it” attitude towards a rumor being repeated by a back bench congressman who admits to having no inside information about the situation.  The rumor mill never stops running on Capitol Hill, and we’ve seen such rumors about Ryan before.

This is only controversial among Democrats who love those illegal voters. – Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross announced that the Census Bureau will be adding a new question to the 2020 census forms:  “Are you a U.S. citizen?”  Democrats and leftwing activists, of course, will be tossing hissy fits of rage about adding this simple and very useful question onto the form.

Right on cue, Kristen Clarke, president and executive director of the Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights Under Law, told some fake reporter at CNN that “This is an arbitrary and untested decision that all but guarantees that the Census will not produce a full and accurate count of the population as the constitution requires.” The execrable California Attorney General Xavier Becerra accused Ross and the Administration of  trying to “hijack the 2020 census for political purposes.”

The reasons for adding this question back onto the census form are numerous:  1) to give a sovereign nation an accurate count of the number of actual citizens who reside within its newly-enforced borders; 2) to give a sovereign nation an accurate estimate of the real number of illegal aliens who reside within its borders; and 3) to form an accurate count of citizens in order to properly draw congressional districts.

As Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach told Breitbart news:

“Right now, congressional districts are drawn up simply based on the number of warm bodies in each district. Not only are legal aliens counted, but illegal aliens are counted too. As a result, citizens in a district with lots of illegal aliens have more voting power than citizens in districts with few illegal aliens.

Think of it this way. There are about 710,000 people in each congressional district. But, if half of the district is made up of illegal aliens, then there are only 355,000 citizens in the district. The value of each citizen’s vote in such a district is twice as high.”

Of course, Democrats all over the country work very hard every election cycle to find ways to enable illegal non-citizens to vote, because they’ll pretty much always vote Democrat.  Democrats also know than an accurate count of the number of illegals currently in the country is going to be a very, very big number, much bigger than the “11 million” they’ve been tossing around by rote for more than a decade.  They know that revealing an accurate estimate of the magnitude of the illegal population will shock many citizens, providing added momentum to the Trump Administration’s ongoing efforts to enforce the border.

Never, never forget this key fact:  Democrats favor flooding the nation with illegal immigrants because they view those illegal immigrants as a future voter bloc.  Once you accept that simple reality, their seemingly irrational opposition to something as simple as a citizenship question on the census form makes perfect sense.

Just another day in Democrats undermining the very idea of America.

That is all.

Congress De-funds a Ghost as Trump Eliminates Another Obama-era Scam

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Tired of all this Winning yet?  Oh, wait…:  Great news, everyone!  The 2234-page atrocity that congress refers to as an omnibus “budget” contains a secret provision nobody read that would defund ACORN!  You remember ACORN, don’t you?  That Obama-supported leftist organization that cobbled together hundreds of thousand of fraudulent votes to help Obama fake-win the 2008 presidential election?  Yeah, that ACORN.

Well, ACORN won’t be getting no federal money anymore, thanks to your intrepid establishment congressional Republicans, who work every day to protect by-God America.  One problem, though:  ACORN hasn’t actually existed since 2009.  D’oh!

Your congressional Republicans:  Only a decade late to the fight.

If you have any shopping to do, today’s a great day to go the mall. – Why?  Because the leftist-organized “March for our Lives” rallies will be taking place all over the country.  So, many of those teenagers who spend their days making a nuisance of themselves at your local shopping center will be busy pretending to know something about guns and gun control at a demonstration somewhere else.  So, go shopping, America – the coast will never be more clear.

You can’t fight AR-15s with pistols! The pistol’s bullets are just too slow!  But kids throwing rocks, on the other hand… – Remember the “pistol bullets are just too slow” line of argument against President Trump’s proposal to protect school children by allowing trained teachers and administrators to carry concealed weapons?  Wasn’t that a special one?  Yeah….good times.

Well, no worries, school administrators in Schuylkill County, PA have the conundrum of protecting their kids all figured out, you betcha.  Just ask Superintendent Dr. David Helsel, who bragged to state lawmakers in Harrisburg on Friday that “Every classroom has been equipped with a five-gallon bucket of river stone. If an armed intruder attempts to gain entrance into any of our classrooms, they will face a classroom full students armed with rocks and they will be stoned.”  Yeah, that’ll work.

I swear I don’t make this stuff up.

She’s so fake, she embarrasses all the other fake journalists. – Of all the legion of fake journalists working in the nation’s capital today, the Washington Post’s dimwitted Jennfer Rubin is probably the fakest of them all.  Upon learning of John Bolton’s appointment as the next National Security Advisor, Rubin issued the following tweet:

But just a year ago, Rubin penned a piece advocating for the appointment of Bolton to become Deputy Secretary of State:  “There are few experienced hands who know how the State Department works today and have a granular understanding as to how it should function. If not Bolton himself, someone very much like him would be ideal in the No. 2 spot at State.”  But it gets even better.

As Warren Henry at the Federalist points out, the reason why Rubin wanted Bolton as the #2 guy at State was so that he would become a logical choice to become …wait for it…wait for it…National Security Advisor!  I kid you not:  “Unless Trump wants to go through the rigmarole of hiring a new face, the inevitable [Michael T.] Flynn replacement is very likely to come from within the administration — the No. 2 person at the state or defense departments or some other player with whom Trump has developed a relationship of trust.”

Thus, it becomes crystal clear that Rubin’s real problem with Bolton is simply that he was appointed by Donald Trump, and at the WaPo, agreeing with the sitting, duly-elected POTUS is simply not tolerated.

Trump continues to disassemble the un-American Obama legacy, brick by disgraceful brick. – The fake news media is reporting that President Trump “banned transgenders from serving in the military” Friday evening.  That’s actually not true.  What he did was implement a new policy – based on the recommendation from Defense Secretary James Mattis – that will ban the ongoing scam in which persons with gender dysphoria have joined the military in order to take advantage of a policy implemented by Barack Hussein Obama that forces the taxpayers to pay for their gender reassignment surgery.

Towards that end, the new policy states that “transgender persons with a history or diagnosis of gender dysphoria — individuals who the policies state may require substantial medical treatment, including medications and surgery — are disqualified from military service except under certain limited circumstances.”  Individuals who have been “stable for 36 consecutive months in their biological sex prior to accession,” and those who “do not require a change of gender” will be exempt from the new policy and allowed to serve.

In other words, the scam – which Obama actively encouraged – of enlisting in one of the armed services for a three-year hitch and spending most of that time undergoing gender-transition surgeries at taxpayer expense es no mas.  On the other hand, trans-gender individuals who truly wish to serve their country honorably remain welcome in the U.S. armed services, as they should be.

For all you enraged SJWs out there, this what is known as good public policy.

Just another day in erasing the disappearing Obama legacy America.

That is all.

Face it: Establishment Republicans Hate Governing

The Evening Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

So, here’s our reality as of today, with the passage and presidential signing of the disgrace of a fake budget bill:  The GOP “establishment” is actively working to surrender its House majority, so that it can go back to being comfortable again.

Republican squishes like Paul Ryan, Mitch McConnell and the rest of the congressional GOP leadership are only “pretend” conservatives.  They are in their natural habitat when they are able to throw darts at governing Democrats while in Washington while never having to take any real responsibility for actually getting anything done.  They are incredibly brave and confrontational when in that mode, as they were for the 6 years in which they controlled one or both houses of congress while Barack Hussein Obama was President.

In those years, those brave GOP squishes in the house were able to vote 30-odd times to repeal the Obamacare monstrosity, and even the GOP senate managed it a few times.  Once they had a Republican in the White House, though, repealing Obamacare suddenly became a bridge too far, as McConnell could always find a few Republicans like McCain or Collins or Murkowski to kill it in the Senate.

Establishment Rs also love to pretend to be fiscal conservatives, just so long as they’re never required to actually get anything real done to prove it.  When they’re in the minority, they’re the first to run to the nearest microphone to squeal about Democrats leading the nation to financial ruin with their profligate spending.  But squealing is all it ever amounts to  – let them be confronted with a government shutdown as their only avenue for stopping the waste, and they become a pack of surrender monkeys.

Put them in the majority, and it’s even worse.  Now, their only excuse is the senate’s arcane filibuster rule, and its requirement of 60 votes to be overcome.  When that rule is all that stands between them and a government shutdown over funding Democrat spending priorities, again it becomes surrender monkey time.

Governing is simply not a Republican core competency.  Never has been, never will be.  So when they control all the levers of power, you end up with legislative atrocities like the bill the President signed into law today, because they are eager to give the Ds anything they want in order to avoid being blamed for shutting down 14 percent of the government by that nasty ol’ news media.

The bill enacted today represents complete capitulation by the GOP congress.  As what is likely to become the last major legislative action prior to the November midterms, its passage is going to have a terrible dampening effect on GOP voter enthusiasm, likely dooming the Republican Party to the loss of its majority in the house.

The truth is – and it may only be on a sub-conscious level – that is really the outcome that establishment Republicans prefer.  Lose the majority in the house, and the squish Rs can just go back to tossing darts at the Democrats.  So what if it means that the Democrats will get their way and impeach President Trump?  Most establishment Rs never supported the guy in the first place, and are not at all comfortable having to carry his water in the halls of congress.

Besides, they’ll still have the majority in the Senate (probably, anyway), so McConnell can surely muster up enough votes to prevent the President’s removal over there.  And they’ll all get to toss darts at the Democrats for being so irresponsible while it’s all going on, which is just an added bonus.

President Trump should have vetoed the bill, for his and congressional Republicans’ own good.  Shutting down the government with a veto would have been consistent with Trump’s persona, and you could tell at his press conference that he knew this.  Plus, a veto would have forced Ryan and McConnell to actually govern a little bit, against their own will.  They’d have simply had no choice.

But Trump promised during the campaign to rebuild the nation’s military, which had been neglected by his predecessor, and signing this bill ensured that he could keep that promise, even if it likely means he will never get the funding he needs for his also-promised border wall.  In the end, he chose to go with the pleas from Mad Dog Mattis, grab the military funding while he could, and hope to find some leverage point on immigration somewhere down the road.  McConnell and Ryan heaved huge sighs of relief, knowing they wouldn’t have to be bothered with doing any governing in any real way until at least 2019, and possibly never again if the Rs do lose the house.

At the end of the day, we all have to just face it:  Tossing darts at Democrats is really all that establishment Republicans go to Washington to do, because that’s fun, and it’s easy, too.  Governing, now that’s hard, and not fun at all.

That is all.

Media Outraged By Big Tech Data Scam – But Only Because One Finally Benefitted a Republican

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

But they’d all happily vote for Bill Clinton again tomorrow. – A new poll indicates that 53% of Democrats now think it’s wrong to vote for a candidate who has done immoral things in his private life.  *sigh*

This will happen as soon as all those Flying J’s truck stops start selling decaf halfcaf skinny mocha soy lattes with two honeys and a twist of lemon. – NBCnews.com has a piece this morning titled “Why Millenials Should Start Considering Truck Driving.”  Ok, it’s actually good advice, but, well, it’s not exactly the vision Obama filled these young peoples’ heads with for eight long years, is it?  But it turns out our country is now overwhelmed with unemployable social workers, dog groomers, computer coders and Russian feminist literature studies majors, and we’re a little short on people who want to keep our economy moving by driving long-haul trucks for a living.  Go figure.  No one could have possibly seen that coming.

The fake news media finally catches onto the Big Tech data scam – Of course, this only happened when the “improper” use of 50 million Facebook users’ information ended up benefiting a Republican, i.e., the Trump Campaign in 2016.  No one in the fake media gave a rat’s behind when Google set up a satellite office in the Obama White House and Facebook and Twitter eagerly shared all the data there was to share with the Obama campaign during the 2012 election cycle.  But now that some firm that Trump didn’t even use during the general election had access to Facebook’s data that might have benefited the media’s enemy, well, that’s crossing the fake news media’s fake red line.  Because that’s what the fake news media does.

Here’s our reality when dealing with Facebook, Twitter, Google and the other Big Tech websites:  All they really are is data accumulators who are in business to sell their data.  If you provide data to, say, Facebook, Facebook is ultimately going to sell that data to make a profit.  Despite their periodic protests to the contrary, there have been so many examples of Facebook and Twitter doing this that you have to be a hopeless simpleton to actually believe anything you do on any of these platforms will somehow remain private and confidential.

The fake media is treating this latest in a long line of examples as some sort of major event, but the truth is that, had the firm in question here, Cambridge Analytica, been working on behalf of the Clinton Campaign, this would not be a story at all – you’d have never heard of these people.  Facebook and Twitter have been shadow-banning conservative news outlets and users for years with no objection from anyone at CNN or the NYTimes.  Google has almost since its’ first day of existence been biasing its search results in favor of Democrats, and no one at Yahoo News or the Washington Post has uttered a peep about it.

The hilarious part of all of this fake media attention is that it is giving momentum to the efforts in Washington to find some way to heavily regulate these big tech platforms in the future.  While any effort by the federal government to regulate these big tech companies would no doubt end up being a slow-rolling train wreck – because that’s the core competency of federal government regulators – it would be a certain form of justice to see the Facebooks and Googles of the world end up being hoisted up on their own petards.

Hey, at least we got some great Twitter memes out of it (see below) – The Washington Free Beacon reports that U.S. taxpayers are having to foot the bill to the tune of $22 grand for the Pantsuit Princess’s book tour trip to India.  That total amount is the combined cost of Secret Service protection for the Fainting Felon, along with administrative costs incurred by the State Department.  But hey,  why wouldn’t the millions of deplorables who the Coughing Crook insulted during the trip be glad to pay for a trip in which she broke her wrist climbing into a million dollar bathtub and humiliated herself by not being able to even come down a flight of stairs without major assistance?  Good times…good times…

 

Just another day in big tech data scamming America.

Has Jeff Sessions Been Boiling the Frog? Sure Seems That Way.

The Evening Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

There isn’t much worth reading in the #NeverTrump enclave that is The National Review anymore, but there are exceptions to this rule.  Anything written by the great Victor Davis Hanson is one such exception.  Anything written by Andrew C. McCarthy is the other.

McCarthy, who is himself a former federal prosecutor, published a very interesting piece at National Review on Saturday.  It’s long, but well worth the read, as he provides an excellent synopsis of alleged FBI and DOJ abuses in both the Clinton email scandal and the whole Trump-Russia “collusion” fantasy play, and concludes with a strong and interesting recommendation on how Attorney General Jeff Sessions should proceed to have both matters investigated and, if warranted, prosecuted.

In brief, McCarthy is no fan of the special counsel law in general or of the specific and growing calls from an array of congressional Republicans for the appointment of a second special counsel to “investigate the investigators”.  He believes the special counsel law is structured in a way that pretty much ensures out-of-control investigations with no investigative sidebars or budgetary restrictions, ones that inevitably end up causing an amazing amount of political and societal disruption, ruin lives, and whose end results tend to be a handful of convictions of minor functionaries for process violations that may or may not have any relation to the supposed reason why the investigation began in the first place.  See the results of the Robert Mueller investigation thus far as a primary example.

Rather than repeat this prosecutorial circus with the appointment of another special counsel, McCarthy proposes the following approach:

Here is what should be done. Attorney General Sessions should assign a U.S. attorney from outside Washington to conduct a probe of how the Clinton-emails and Trump-Russia investigations were handled by the Justice Department and FBI…

…the designated U.S. attorney would handle this investigation along with the rest of the work of his or her office — this would not be a prosecutor whose only assignment is to pursue a single target or set of targets, and who thus faces great pressure to file charges, no matter how far afield from the original focus of the investigation, in order to justify the appointment. Unlike the inspector general, the U.S. attorney would have full jurisdiction to convene a grand jury; investigate any crimes attendant to the Clinton-emails and Trump-Russia probes; issue subpoenas and seek other court process (such as search warrants) to secure evidence; and prosecute any violations of law by persons inside or outside of government.

I find this specific recommendation, coming on this specific weekend to be fascinating, because McCarthy’s recommendation for investigating DOJ/FBI conduct in these two scandals/non-scandals essentially amounts to an endorsement to the approach Sessions himself told Fox News’s Shannon Bream on Wednesday that he is already pursuing in looking into alleged DOJ/FBI abuses of the FISA process (Jeff Sessions Dropped a Bomb – Hardly Anyone Noticed).

To quote Sessions:

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

And, as I pointed out in that piece on Thursday:

Unlike [DOJ Inspector General Michael] Horowitz, this unidentified special prosecutor would have the power to convene a grand jury – and may have already done so – and quickly begin issuing subpoenas based on the recommendations contain in the Horowitz report.

Let’s also remember that, over the course of three weeks in December and January, Sessions let it be known that he has taken a similar approach to forming DOJ investigations into the following Clinton/Obama era scandals:

  • Uranium One;
  • The Clinton Foundation;
  • Felony leaks coming out of DOJ and the FBI;
  • The Obama/Hezbollah “Project Cassandra” scandal.

Combine all of those investigations with the DOJ Inspector General investigation, along with multiple other likely ongoing investigations we don’t even know about yet, and you have a very busy Justice Department indeed.

What’s so interesting is the way in which Sessions has gone about letting all of this be known, always casually mentioning the existence of this investigation or that in the middle of interviews, almost as an afterthought in response to a question.  He’s done it in a way that has prevented the media from engaging in feeding frenzies around any of them, and has also prevented any leaking to the press around any of them.

He’s done it so quietly that it has led many to accuse him of being a do-nothing, lazy or even compromised in some way by people who are simply unaware of everything that is going on.  I was one of those people up until last November, in fact.  Even as astute an observer as Andrew McCarthy appeared, in his piece from yesterday, unaware that the method he was suggesting for investigating one scandal was in fact the method Sessions has been employing all along related to other investigations.

Boiling the frog.  That’s what they call it in the DC Swamp when one side is inexorably turning up the heat on the opposition so slowly that the opposition doesn’t notice until the time has passed to take any effective defensive action.

If that really has been the strategy, it’s been amazingly effective.  Hopefully, the IG report will finally drop soon, and we’ll begin to find out.

That is all.

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

The Evening Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

That is all.

Democrats Don’t Need the Mob Anymore: Democrats ARE the Mob

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Tired of all this Winning yet? – New jobless claims fell by another 10,000 last week, as the economy approaches full employment.  New claims totaled 210,000 according to the Labor Department, the lowest level recorded in the U.S. since 1969.  This #Winning never, never, never, ever gets old.

Democrats in action. – Meanwhile, the social justice warriors at Kennesaw Mountain College in Georgia have banned the use of pretty much all the pronouns in the Webster’s Dictionary.  To replace them, the College introduced seven different lists of “gender-neutral” pronouns that students must use when addressing others.  The problem is, it is up to each individual to choose which of the 7 pronoun categories he or she…oops, there is no he or she anymore at KMC…’Ze’ or ‘Ve’ prefers.

The guide further hilariously notes that students “may change their pronouns without changing their name, appearance, or gender identity,” and suggests that preferred pronouns be re-confirmed regularly during “check-ins at meetings or in class.”  Folks, I was in an astronomy class at The University of Texas that had 120 students in it.  A pronoun “check-in” at the start of class would have consumed half of the class time.

“It can be tough to remember pronouns at first,” the guide helpfully points out.  True, but it’s probably easier than wasting time learning stuff like algebra, history and actual English.

More Democrats in action. – In Chicago, Democrat efforts to steal even more elections via mass voter fraud took another step forward with the issuance of what the sanctuary city’s leaders call the “CityID” card.  Matt Dietrich, spokesman for the Illinois State Board of Elections, said that the card “would be a legal form of ID for the board of elections to accept” when any resident attempts to register to vote.

But hey, don’t worry, Dietrich went on, “When you go to register to vote, you do check a box that attests to your citizenship.”  He also assured everyone that the same city officials who are currently actively violating  federal immigration law by enforcing the city’s “sanctuary” status will be policing the situation to make sure that people who knowingly entered the U.S. in violation of  our country’s immigration law don’t lie.  In 1960, John F. Kennedy needed Sam Giancana and the Chicago mob to steal Illinois.  Today, the Democrat Party is the mob, so no help necessary.

Still More Democrats in action. – Retiring Utah Senator Orrin Hatch, speaking at a meeting of the American Enterprise Institute, called the supporters of the Obamacare legislation in 2009-10 “the stupidest, dumbass people I’ve ever met.”  Well, yes.  They’re all Democrats.  Great to see the Senator finally getting to air his unfiltered thoughts during his waning days in office.

Speaking of Democrats in action, White House spokesman Sarah Huckabee Sanders told the assembled fake news reporters on Thursday that the Justice Department is conducting a review of the actions by Oakland Mayor Libby Schaff, who warned illegal immigrants in her city last Friday to head for the hills because ICE was about to conduct a roundup operation in the area.  This was clearly obstruction of justice, but Mayor Schaff, concerned about the prospect of spending time in the federal pokey, now claims she wasn’t advising anyone to take evasive action, oh no.  She just wanted them all to spend time studying and learning their rights while they sat meekly in their living rooms awaiting the arrival of ICE agents.  It’s an obvious lie – and if she says it to FBI agents, that’s also supposed to be a crime – but that’s what Democrats do.  It’s all they got.

As we all know, Hollywood is pretty much 100% infested with Democrats who just love to give themselves awards for all the award-worthy work they do in making the films they turn out, which, with very rare exceptions, range from horrifically awful to merely mediocre.  The biggest of the 3 dozen or so awards ceremonies, the Oscars, takes place this Sunday, and attendees always find a nice big gift bag sitting on their seat when they arrive.

In tribute to the fact that Hollywood has over the last 5 months been starkly revealed to be a seething cesspit of sexual abuse and depravity, Yahoo News reports that this year’s gift bags will contain ” a key-ring sized pepper spray, a gel pepper spray, two personal body alarms and a kit to test whether your drink has been drugged.”  If news reports are accurate, every woman and boy under the age of 18 will need to use every one of those items to protect them from registered Democrats before the night is over.

Just another day in Democrats are the mob America.

If Dissembling Were an Olympics Event, Adam Schiff and Scott Israel Would be Co-Gold Medal Winners

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Tired of all this Winning yet? – The 2018 U.S. Winter Olympics team was a colossal flop, winning just 23 medals overall, the lowest U.S. total since 1998.  This comes despite the fact that the Games have been loaded up with junk sports over the last 20 years specifically in order to give the U.S. a shot at winning more medals, in hopes of boosting TV ratings.  Not surprisingly, the poor U.S. performance also led directly to these Olympic games setting new lows in terms of television audience.

But all is not lost, sports fans!   As The Simpsons eerily predicted 8 years ago, the U.S. men’s curling team was able to raise their brooms over their heads as they were awarded the gold medal for the first time ever!  It’s like they always say, if your nation’s main core competency in athletics is sliding a gigantic rock across 50 feet of ice while a guy clears its way with a broom, you are becoming Norway, which, as President Trump recently assured us, is definitely not a shithole country.  So we got that going for us.  #Winning!

While my website was down on Saturday, bug-eyed California Congressman Adam Schiff released his long-awaited “counter-memo” on FISA abuse to a public that is now obsessed with other matters.  The fact that Schiff took 2 weeks to edit a few sentences and remove some footnotes from his tome and then released it quietly on a Saturday – ensuring a minimum amount of news coverage – tells you all you really need to know about the thing.

The Democrats with press passes in the fake news media predictably hailed the Schiff memo as the word of god.  But basically, once you get past all the irrelevant fluff and attacks on President Donald Trump scattered throughout the thing, the Schiff memo simply confirms what Devin Nunes and Trey Gowdy had already told us three weeks ago:  That the Obama Administration used the Fake Trump Dossier as its main basis for obtaining a FISA warrant to spy on the Trump Campaign, and later on the Trump Transition team; that the FBI and DOJ did not inform the court that the Dossier was paid for by the DNC and the Clinton Campaign;  that the information in the Dossier was unverified and was obtained by a British agent and sourced mainly from Russian agents; and that this process was repeated 4 times over a period of 9 months.

Schiff’s latest distraction not only does not dispute those key facts of wrongdoing by the Obama FBI and DOJ, it actively confirms them.  In response to Schiff’s laughable dud, Nunes issued a point-by-point dissection of thing, which everyone at CNN and MSNBC studiously ignored.  You can bet the balance of your 401(k) that Schiff, having created the misdirection he was shooting for, will now clam up like a mid-level mob operative and hope this particular aspect of the House Intelligence Committee’s work fades away.

Meanwhile, in Florida, Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel, barely hours removed from hilariously bragging to fake CNN host Jake Tapper that he had provided “amazing leadership” in his duties as Sheriff, told a local NBC affiliate’s reporter that he’s just not responsible at all for the actions of his deputies.  I swear I don’t make this stuff up:  “As I said, I’m the Sheriff, my name’s on the door,” Israel said. “The people responsible are the ones who took the calls and didn’t follow up on them, as it was with the FBI, as it was with any person.  Leaders are responsible for the agency, but leaders are not responsible for a person.  I gave him a gun. I gave him a badge. I gave him the training. If he didn’t have the heart to go in, that’s not my responsibility.”

As of early Monday morning, this aspiring circus clown still has his job, but one wonders whether the people of Florida have enough self-respect to allow that situation to last into Monday afternoon.  If Speaker of the Florida House Richard Corcoran has his way, it won’t.  Corcoran and 73 of his Republican colleagues sent a letter to Florida Gov. Rick Scott on Sunday that demands he immediately suspend Israel for “dereliction of duty and incompetence.”  Although sheriffs in Florida are elected to their office, the state’s law does give the state’s governor the right to take such action.

Given that, to borrow one of Israel’s favorite words, it’s rather “amazing” that Governor Scott has waited this long to get this embarrassment to his state’s dissembling face off of America’s television sets.  No time like the present, Governor.  What are you waiting for?

Just another day in Winning Curling is still Winning America.

That is all.

The Campaign Update Week In Review: Winning. Sooooo Much Winning.

So, let’s review the week we have just experienced, because it will be remembered as the week the tide truly turned:

  • Humiliation for pretty much every major fake media outlet:  CNN, Reuters, Bloomberg, ABC, NBC, CBS, MSNBC, WaPo and NPR.  Somehow, the NYTimes escaped major embarrassment, unless I missed something.  Sheer luck, no doubt.
  • The Mueller coup d’etat effort began to come unraveled, as detailed in Friday morning’s Campaign Update.
  • Supreme court upholds Trump travel ban on a 7-2 decision.
  • The Trump economy is booming, and our pathetic ex-President is wandering around the country desperately trying to take credit for it.
  • ISIS is in utter and complete shambles, a story the fake news media is desperately ignoring.
  • Roy Moore is headed for a landslide win in next Tuesday’s special election, as pretty much all of his accusers have been shown to be liars.
  • Trump announces U.S. will finally move its embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.  Democrats and media go insane with rage.
  • Al Franken and John Conyers have been run out of congress by their Democrat colleagues, who are desperately searching for a new angle of attack against President Trump, now that their whole “Russia Collusion” fantasy has collapsed.
  • Justice Department initiates investigation into Planned Parenthood’s trafficking in baby body parts.
  • Bad actors in the FBI and Justice Department are being systematically marginalized.
  • The biggest tax cut in American history being negotiated in conference committee.
  • And did I mention that the Trump economy is booming?  I did? That’s ok, it can’t be pointed out often enough.

Just another week in I cannot get enough of this #WINNING  America.

That is all.
