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.
