For the Democrats, Riots are now an Accepted Political Strategy

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

The Maxine Waters riot-incitement formula:

First, go out on a Saturday and use inflammatory language designed to encourage leftist violence against the President of the United States, his staff and his supporters.

Second, make a series of TV appearances in which you use the same inflammatory language while denying you’re using inflammatory language – no worries, you know the fake interviewers will just go along.

Third, make false claims of receiving life-threatening emails and letters from a bunch of the President’s supporters.

Fourth, cancel a couple of fundraisers in far-away states on the false claim that you’re the one being threatened.

Finally, go out the next Saturday and start the process all over again, which is what Mad Maxine did yesterday at one of the staged “abolish ICE!” rallies in Los Angeles.

This is pure Saul Alinsky Rules for Radicals 101.

And hey, the Braying Buffoon got her wish yesterday, as a full-blown riot incited by her pals in the fascist Antifa group took place on the streets of Portland, Oregon.  Films clearly show a counter-demonstration by the Patriot Prayers group walking peacefully down a street, and black-masked Antifa thugs – funded by George Soros and your Democrat Party – pelting the group with eggs, rocks and no telling what else.

Finally, when one of the thugs lobbed some sort of fireworks into the Patriot Prayers group – injuring at least one – the demonstrators reacted and a full-blown riot began.  Portland authorities and the fake news media did their best to blame the peaceful “right-wing” demonstrators – who, unlike the Antifa thugs, actually had a city-issued permit to stage their rally – but the film is clear and unambiguous.

This is just the first of what will become many, many more riots to come this summer and fall, because the reality is that one of our two major political parties is tacitly endorsing the behavior, and even helping to fund it.  This is the manifestation of the frustration within a political party that was, just a decade ago, the clear majority political party in this country and is now, after the radicalization led by Barack Obama, a small, regional party isolated in coastal areas and a handful of large cities out here in Flyover Country.

Not so long ago, this was a party that knew how to win elections.  More than anything else, what Obama did to the Democrat Party was to “transform” it into a pack of spoiled children who no longer “feel like” (because with spoiled children, everything is about “feelings”) they should have to win elections, because having power is somehow their entitlement.

When spoiled, entitled children become frustrated, they lash out, and that’s what the Democrat Party and its radical leftist support base is doing right now.  They know they’re losing in the public arena of ideas, they see their “blue wave” to which their fake news media made them feel entitled during the winter and spring slipping away, and they’re tossing a tantrum at the prospect of yet another looming Election Day on which they do not get their way.

As Election Day approaches and the scope of their coming defeat begins to become increasingly manifest, the tantrums will only grow more extreme and violent, because there are no adults in the Democrat Party anymore, no authority figures to send the acting-out children to sit in a corner for a little “time out” period.  That became crystal clear 20 months ago when, as Antifa and other Soros-funded leftist groups staged riots and violent acts all over the country in the wake of the election, not one Democrat Party authority figure had the personal integrity to speak out against them.

All it would have taken back in November/December of 2016 would have been for Barack Obama or Hillary Clinton to make a call for cooler heads to prevail, and it would have all been nipped in the bud.  Instead, they and every other “leader” in the Democrat Party simply signed themselves up as a part of the “resistance” and put the black-masked Antifa thugs essentially in charge of their party’s prospects for 2018 and beyond.

Because this is not an organic movement, it is a strategy.  Many of you may remember that, just a few days after Election Day 2016, the leaders of the Democrat Party held a three-day summit meeting with Mr. Soros and other major Democrat funders to develop a post-election disaster strategy for the coming four years.  The headline of the story summarizing this summit in Politico is prophetic:  “Soros bands with donors to resist Trump, ‘take back power'”.  Thus, their focus shifted from winning elections to devising ways to “take back power.”

The Democrats will never condemn the violence of Antifa and other leftist agitators because they literally invented them and fund them.  They’re all part of the “resistance,” which is not an organic movement, but a strategy.

Never forget that as you watch what is about to unfold on our nation’s streets over the next four months.  Never forget.

Just another day in the Democrat Party is public enemy number one America.

That is all.

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.

Hey, Remember That Blue Wave? Yeah, it Ain’t Happening.

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Tired of all this #Winning yet? Part I – The President, First Lady, Vice President and Secretary of State all turned out to Andrews Air Force Base at 2:00 a.m. to welcome home Kim Dong Chul, Kim Hak Song and Tony Kim, three Americans who had been held as prisoners for years by the North Korean government.  Their release was a show of good faith by the Crazy Little Fat Guy, Kim Jong Un, in advance of next month’s face-to-face negotiation with President Trump related to the de-nuclearization of the Korean peninsula.

The sight of one of the men hugging Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, who had flown halfway across the world to secure their release earlier in the week, was enough to bring tears to the eyes of any thinking person.  Democrats and fake reporters were, of course, unmoved, given that these three men were released as the result of the efforts of President Trump, after having languished in a North Korean prison throughout much of the administration of media hero Barack Obama.

By the way, if you’re sitting there wondering why this kind of thing keeps happening under this President, when we never saw anything similar the previous 8 years, it’s because this President is trying.  It really is that simple.

Your news media in action!  Part I – The deranged lunatics at the New York Times, meanwhile, published a piece Wednesday morning lambasting Secretary Pompeo for being “AWOL” as President Trump announced he was ending U.S. participation in the horrible Iran deal.  Later in the day, after some no-doubt “anonymous source” (because that’s the only kind of sources the New York Times has anymore) informed the morons at the Times that Pompeo was actually rescuing a bunch of political prisoners, the fake newspaper published a piece that was actually positive about the prisoner release. What a dumpster fire.

Your news media in action!  Part II – Speaking of huge, raging dumpster fires, I give you NBC News.  Former Trump attorney Michael Cohen has been the subject of so much fake reporting by the Peacock Network that he felt the need to get on his Twitter account to try to shame the fake news operation into correcting some of his horrible reporting:

That’s right:  NBC News is so fake and lacking in any editorial standards whatsoever that it can’t even identify the correct guy named Michael Cohen before filing its reports.  I mean, dayum, people.

Your Democrats in action! – But the most disgusting spectacle of the day was, without question, watching as some of the very worst people on the face of the earth, like Kamala Harris, Mark Warner and Dianne Feinstein, questioned the nominee for CIA Director, Gina Haspel, about her “moral compass.”  My goodness.

Tired of all this #Winning yet?  Part II.  That Blue Wave is circling down the toilet. – Speaking of Democrats, that much-ballyhooed “Blue Wave” that all the Democrat operatives in the fake news media were telling you was an absolute certainty a few months ago has pretty much fallen off of even CNN’s fake news story rotation.  Maybe that’s because even CNN’s own congressional generic preference poll, which just four months ago claimed the Democrats led Republicans by a whopping 16 points, yesterday came in at just a 3 point Democrat lead, which happens to be within the fake poll’s margin of error.

The CNN result is pretty consistent with the other generic congressional polls, all of which have narrowed up substantially since the first of the year.  Which should come as no surprise to anyone.

I told you back in December that the whole “Blue Wave” thing was just wishful thinking on the part of the Democrats and their media support group.  I predicted then that as the tax cuts kicked into working peoples’ paychecks, the good economic growth news continued coming in, and other good things continued to happen, those numbers would narrow substantially.  I even predicted that the situation with North Korea, which at that time appeared to be a major crisis verging on a military conflict, would in fact be ultimately resolved on largely U.S. terms without a shot being fired.

Guess what’s about to happen?  The situation with North Korea is about to be resolved without a shot being fired.  Guess what will happen to those generic ballot polls when that happy result comes about?  The small Democrat lead will disappear entirely, and by August you’re going to be seeing polls showing that measure has moved into the GOP’s favor.  Hell, at this rate, you might start seeing such polls in June.

But that’s not all that’s about to happen in the coming weeks and months.  The Mueller investigation is about to come to a head, and will be ultimately resolved with no legitimate charges filed against the President.  Mueller may end up writing a report in which he tries to provide the Democrats some basis for an impeachment effort – which has been the goal of this “investigation” since day 1 – but that won’t matter because the Democrats aren’t going to win back control of the House in November.

“But wait, there’s more!”, to quote the late, great Billy Mays.  We’re also about to see the issuance of the final report from DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz, and the subsequent issuance of grand jury subpoenas and indictments targeting – guess who? – not the Trump Administration, but a bunch of Clinton and Obama loyalists.

Bottom line, the 2018 mid-terms will definitely be a “sea-change” election, but not the “blue wave” kind the fake news media was loudly touting a few months ago.  No, the “sea-change” in this campaign will be the massive shift that takes place in the generic congressional ballot polling between last December and this coming November.

And the beauty of all of this is that the Democrat Party leaders are so stupid and out of touch that they decided last year to discard anything resembling a policy agenda and hang their Party’s entire future on promoting hatred for Donald Trump.

Isn’t life great?

Just another day in that Blue Wave ain’t gonna happen America.

That is all.

This is America, Where Fake News Reporting Now Wins Pulitzers

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Tired of all this Winning yet?  – Heads had to be exploding all over the fake mainstream news media on Monday, as President Trump hit 51% approval in the Rasmussen Survey and several other polls showed the President’s approval ticking upwards.  These results have to be maddening to all the fake reporters and editors who wake up every day intent on slanting their reporting against the current POTUS in their tireless efforts to reverse the outcome of the 2016 national election.

Even worse for the fake media and its masters at the Democrat National Committee, the new ABC/Washington Post survey shows the Democrat edge in the generic congressional preference category closing to just 4 percent, at 47/43.  This poll had that margin at 12 points in January.  Hey, maybe Robert Mueller’s assault on the right to attorney client privilege and the constitutional protection against unreasonable search and seizure isn’t such a great idea for the Democrats after all?  Just a thought.

Speaking of Mueller and his efforts to destroy every shred of attorney/client privilege in his desperation to dig up dirt on the President, the assault on former Trump attorney Michael Cohen made big news when the federal judge in the case, one Kimba Wood, forced the public revelation of Mr. Cohen’s three most recent clients, and it turned out that one of those clients happened to be Fox News and radio talk show host Sean Hannity.   The fake journalist Twitter-verse erupted with glee at the judge-ordered doxing of Hannity, who they all hate.  Hannity, for his part, said that it’s no big deal, and that he had never paid Cohen for any services, though if he had it is hard to see why that would be anyone’s business.

In any event, the actual big news in all of this to anyone who is not a fake reporter or fake editor is the name of that judge – Kimba Wood.  Those of us who, like me, are old enough to remember the early years of the Clinton Administration will remember that Judge Wood was Hillary Clinton’s hand-picked favorite to become Bill Clinton’s first nominee for Attorney General.  We will also remember that Ms. Wood’s potential nomination for the job fell apart when it was revealed that a) she had trained to be a Playboy bunny while in college, and b) she had once employed an illegal alien as a nanny and failed to properly report the wages she paid the nanny to the IRS.

To make things even more outrageous, it turns out that Judge Wood actually officiated at the 2013 wedding ceremony of the evil funder of all sorts of radical efforts to destroy American society, George Soros.

Yes, that Kimba Wood, the long-time buddy of Hillary Clinton and George Soros, is now presiding over the Michael Cohen case.  And all the fake reporters in your fake national news media look at that amazing situation and think “hey, that’s all perfectly normal.  Nothing to report there.”  Holy cow.

In other fake news, our drama queen former FBI Director can’t compete with a porn star for TV ratings.  James Comey’s Sunday night interview on ABC with a former Clinton toady drew only a little over 8 million viewers.  This compares to the 24 million who tuned in to see porn star Stormy Daniels get the softball treatment from Gloria Vanderbilt’s son on CBS.  Which proves, I guess, that in today’s America, a 6’8″ drama queen is only worth a third of the value of a porn star.  Or maybe Anderson Cooper is just that much better looking than George Stephanopoulous.

Finally, in the ultimate expression of the new legitimacy of fake news, the fake staffs at the New York Times and the Washington Post shared the Pulitzer Prize (because, hey, these are mostly Millennials and thus, everyone must go home with a trophy) in the “National Reporting” category for their coverage of “Russian meddling in the 2016 elections.”  Think about this for second:  Both the Times and the Post have been forced to rescind or massively correct dozens of fake stories about what is mostly a fantasy made up out of whole cloth by the Clinton campaign in the wake of its stinging defeat by Donald Trump.

It is fake news at its finest, a media-supported fantasy play that has a completely out-of-control Special Counsel running around the country destroying some of our most crucial constitutional protections, and the Pulitzer Committee is celebrating the two fake newspapers that have played the biggest roles in helping to perpetuate it.  If you’re an American citizen, the members of the Pulitzer Committee just gave you the finger.

Just another day in everything is fake in today’s America.

That is all.

The Sessions v. California Lawsuit is a Good Start. Perp Walks of CA Officials Would be Even Better

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Tired of all this Winning yet? – The Trump economy just continues to add jobs at a phenomenal pace.  The ADP/Moody’s Analytics report for February indicates the economy created 235,000 new non-government jobs, well above expectations of 195,000.   The same report raised the initially-reported January number from 234,000 to 244,000.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced on Wednesday that the Justice Department is filing a lawsuit against California, challenging the state’s “sanctuary state” laws that have its officials openly violating national immigration laws.  The challenge is filed under the “Supremacy Clause” of the U.S. Constitution, which holds that, when state laws are in direct conflict with federal laws, the federal law prevails.  This would seem like a pretty open and shut case, but we can assume that the outlaw 9th Circuit Court of Appeals, through which this case would have to go prior to moving to the Supreme Court, will find some absurd means of ruling in the Golden State’s favor.  Because being overturned by the Supreme Court is the 9th Circuit’s favorite pastime.

California Governor Jerry Brown, who has spent the last 7 years turning his state into a third world country modeled on Venezuela, denounced Sessions’ move, in the process revealing his state’s strategy in fighting the case.  Brown stated at one point that the case would “last longer than the Trump Administration,” which, if his lawyers engage in delaying tactics, could certainly be the case should Trump not win re-election in 2020.  In the meantime, absent further enforcement actions by the federal government, California just gets to keep engaging in its sedition actions on behalf of the MS-13 gang and other illegal immigrant criminals.

One possible further enforcement action for Sessions to take would be to start charging California officials, like Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf, with criminal violations.  Ms. Schaaf, who called Sessions a “racist” after he had announced his lawsuit, was directly responsible for the escape of hundreds of known criminals last week during an ICE roundup of criminal aliens in her area, when she tweeted out a warning about the operation 24 hours in advance.  This is clearly obstruction of justice, and if Sessions really wants to change behavior by California’s outlaw office holders, conducting a few televised perp walks of people like Ms. Schaaf being hauled off to jail in handcuffs would be a great way to start.

Narrative failed?  Double down on the narrative. – In the wake of their narrative of a Texas “blue wave” having failed miserably in Tuesday’s Texas primary elections, the fake news media and Democrat-leaning elections analysts like Charlie Cook did what Democrats do:  they doubled down on the narrative.

Cook, who cited “a lot of evidence” that a blue Texas wave was forming, despite the fact that GOP turnout for the primaries was 50% higher than the Democrat turnout, said  “It’s the Democratic tidal wave versus the Republican seawall.  At this point, my bet is that in House, the wave is bigger and stronger than the wall, but in the Senate, my money is on the wall not the wave.”  Yeah, ok.  Cook also predicted that Hillary Clinton was going to easily be elected to the presidency in 2016, so there’s that.

The Democrats, meanwhile, continued to cling to their hopes of a blue wave by repeatedly pointing out that their total turnout was just over 1,000,000, the first time that had happened since the 2002 primaries.  None of them went onto mention the inconvenient fact that, in the 2002 general elections, their party lost every statewide election in Texas, with Republican Rick Perry prevailing over his extremely well-funded opponent, Tony Sanchez, by a 58-40 margin.

As for Cook’s claim that the Democrat “could” hope to move three of the state’s 36 congressional seats from Republican to Democrat, even that is highly suspect.  Of the three vulnerable Republicans Cook cites – John Culberson, Pete Sessions and Will Hurd – only Hurd would seem to be in real jeopardy.  That is not at all surprising, given that Hurd represents a district that runs from San Antonio all the way to El Paso, one which most observers think is a slightly Democrat-majority district.

Hurd in fact defeated a Democrat incumbent to win the seat in 2014, and barely defeated that same Democrat to win re-election in 2016.  Were that district to flip back to the Democrats in this election, that would not be a “blue wave”, that would simply be the normal course of business.

But hey, stories discussing the normal course of business don’t generate Internet clicks or TV audiences or newspaper sales the way a narrative about a “blue wave” coming to Texas does.  Right?  Right.

Just another day in the Texas Blue Wave is clickbait America.

That is all.
