Can We Get That Whole CalExit Deal Moving A Little Faster?

Today’s Campaign Update 

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

  • If we didn’t have Democrats, we’d have to make them up.Ok, I swear I didn’t make this up.  It’s a real story.  The far, far, far, far left wing of the far, far leftwing California Democratic Party is mounting a recall effort on their own Assembly Speaker because…wait for it…he isn’t far, far, far, far leftwing enough for them.  Wait, you say, Speaker Anthony Rendon is as far, far, far leftwing as it gets, right?  Well, no.  See, he needed to add one more “far” to that total of “fars”, and ram through a completely unworkable proposal to implement single-payer healthcare in the Golden State, a bill that would have utterly bankrupted the state’s treasury within a few years.  Of course, the leftist nitwits who pushed this bill and are now taking out their frustrations on the Speaker figure that when the money runs out in their own state, they’ll just petition the federal government to force taxpayers from the 49 other states to pay for their ruinous policies.  It’s the California way, after all.
  • Hey, can we get that whole CalExit deal moving along a little faster? – Speaking of the insanity that is California, CA Congressman Lou Correa is so unhinged that he now displays a painting of the Statue of Liberty wearing Muslim garb in his congressional office.  This isn’t political thought, this is mental illness.  But then, California is the state that gives us Nancy Pelosi and Maxine Waters, so, just par for the course, really.
  • At long last, this is what you’re sorry for having done?Caitlyn Jenner apologized to her dozens of fans for having been photographed wearing a “Make America Great Again” cap.  Of all the millions of things Caitlyn Jenner owes an apology for, wearing a cap of any kind is not among them.
  • Well, that’s a damn shame.Reuters reports that the Justice Department is not looking to charge journalists for knowingly releasing leaked classified information to the public.  Because no Republican can be counted on to do the right thing anymore.  Sad!
  • I am shocked, shocked to see temperatures falling in Australia! – I reported a couple of weeks ago about the scandal in Australia over the Bureau of Meteorology’s (BOM) effort to “revise” the national temperature data there to invent “global warming” where none is occurring.  Graham Lloyd at The Australian is now reporting that, now that BOM has been caught and forced to properly record actual temperature data rather than make it all up, temperatures Down Under are suddenly plummeting.  Go figure.  No one could have seen that coming!
  • Let the good times roll…or float… – Big news yesterday in New Orleans as heavy rains there overwhelmed the city’s utterly inadequate pumping system that is supposed to drain rain water off of city streets.  While the Times Picayune reported this as if it were some rare occurrence, I have personally been in New Orleans three times in the last 20 years in which the same thing happened.  And no, there weren’t any hurricanes coming through at those times.  The simple fact of the matter is that New Orleans – which I love – is 11 feet below sea level on average, and when it rains heavily, the streets are gonna flood.  This is not news, this is an inevitability.
  • Wait.  Is this question serious? Really??? – The mental midgets at Newsweek ran a piece with the following breathless headline:  “WHY ARE MOST POLITICIANS WHITE 52 YEARS AFTER THE VOTING RIGHTS ACT WAS SIGNED INTO LAW?”  Ummmmm…lessee here….hey, could it be because most people in America are white, even 52 years later?  Now we know why Newsweek exists only in bandwidth.  My goodness.

Just another day in praying for CalExit America.

That is all.

What A Difference A Presidential Tweetstorm Makes

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

  • Boy, what a difference a few tweets makes, huh?  After President Trump had gone after his thus far lackluster performance in office, Attorney General Jeff Sessions suddenly woke up, displaying a sudden new focus on things that actually matter.  Just a few hours after the President’s latest tweet storm, federal agents arrested the chief IT specialist for ex-DNC Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schulz, Imran Awan, as he was attempting to flee the country through Dulles International Airport.  The FBI also announced it has seized a set of “smashed hard drives” that Awan had left behind at his home.  Mr. Anwan had also worked for several other Democrat congressional members in addition to Rep. Schulz.  Nice to see the Justice Department focusing on bringing really bad people to justice rather than ensuring that rural sheriffs get to keep and drive the Maserati’s and speedboats they confiscate from arrested drug dealers.
  • Later in the day, a “source” at the Justice Department told The Washington Post that the Attorney General plans to make a public progress report in the next few days about several ongoing investigations into criminal leaks containing classified information that have been regularly emanating from various government intelligence agencies since President Trump assumed office.  If you think this “source” didn’t give that information to the Post at the request of the AG, you might be naive.
  • And finally, late in the afternoon, the AG announced a tough new policy that would deny Justice Department grant funds to cities that refuse to cooperate with immigration officials tasked with enforcing the country’s immigration laws.  Such grants would now only go “to cities and states that comply with federal law, allow federal immigration access to detention facilities, and provide 48 hours notice before they release an illegal alien wanted by federal authorities.”
  • Who knows?  Maybe the AG’s sudden new focus on stuff that actually matters instead of who might be smoking pot in downtown Denver will actually save his job.  It’s a damn shame it took a public berating from the POTUS to refocus his attention.
  • So you’re sayin’ there’s still a chance! – Great news, everybody!  The so-called “Cal-Exit” movement that hopes to take California out of the USA is still alive!  The Sacramento Bee reports that the California secession movement was given the go-ahead by the state’s Attorney General to begin collecting the required 585,000 signatures to get the initiative placed on the 2018 ballot.  Sadly, the signatures must come from residents of California;  otherwise, I would already be on a plane out to the Golden State to add my name to the list.  But I and millions of other non-Californians will always be behind this noble effort in spirit.
  • After Vice President Pence had cast the deciding vote allowing the debate to begin on the Obamacare Repeal and Replace effort in the U.S. Senate, Senate Republicans who had been promising to repeal Obamacare for seven long years had the chance later in the evening to vote in favor of an amendment that would do exactly that.  Nine Republicans, including eight who had voted to repeal Obamacare in the past, refused to do so last night, now that they have a president who would actually sign such a bill.   Those eight Republicans are Lisa Murkowski of Alaska, Rand Paul of Kentucky, Bob Corker of Tennessee, Lindsey Graham of South Carolina, Dean Heller of Nevada, Jerry Moran of Kansas, Tom Cotton of Arkansas and Mike Lee of Utah.  Susan Collins also voted against the amendment, but Sen. Collins has always been a reliable Democrat vote on healthcare issues, and never voted to repeal Obamacare while Obama was President.  The other eight have no excuse.
  • Speaking of Senator Collins. her aides need to exercise a little more control over her gabby mouth when she’s on a hot mic.  Yesterday it was revealed in various news reports that she said all sorts of goofy and nasty things while in that situation on Monday, including referring to Texas Congressman Blake Farenthold as being “fat” and “so unattractive it’s unbelievable.”  After her uncharitable remarks about Congressman Farenthold’s appearance were made public, the fake Republican Senator from Maine issued a terse apology.
  • Speaking of fake Republicans, Sen. From The News Media John McCain made his way back onto the Senate floor despite having had surgery for a brain tumor last week.  There he made a rousing speech in which he blamed the lack of progress in the U.S. Senate on…wait for it…wait for it…talk radio.  I swear I don’t make this stuff up.  Who could?

Just another day in fake Republicans are everywhere America.

That is all.

A Border Miracle Based Strictly on Psychology

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

  • Tired of winning yet?  National Border Patrol Council President Brandon Judd told C-SPAN Monday that the rapid downturn in illegal border crossings is “nothing short of miraculous.”   He elaborated that total recorded border crossings in 2017 are just 53% of what they were in 2016, and that percentage continues to drop each week.  As we have noted before, this has been achieved without building single foot of wall, without changes to existing statutes, without any new huge budget allocations to the Border Patrol, without the introduction of any new technology.  The one and only reason for this fall is the simple fact that we have a President of the United States who is focused on enforcing the laws already on the books.  Isn’t it amazing how simple psychology changes human behavior.
  • Meanwhile, in the aspiring third world country of California, 8 Senate Republicans broke with party leadership and voted in favor of extending that state’s job-and-business-destroying “Cap and Trade” program through the year 2030.  After the vote was taken, Assembly Republican leader Chad Mayes (R-Yucca Valley) told reporters that “California Republicans are different than national Republicans.”  Yes, they appear to be Democrats.
  • Fresh off of causing progressives’ heads to explode with its fantastic “clenched fist of truth” ad starring Dana Loesch, the National Rifle Association embarked on another snowflake-triggering exercise, this time targeting the fake journalists at the Washington Post.  In the ad, a while male (trigger) spokesman looks directly into the camera (micro-aggression) and tells the WaPo (unfair targeting) that ““Your paper’s new slogan may read Democracy Dies (trigger) in Darkness (micro-aggression). It should say Journalism Dies at the Washington Post.”  The University of Missouri is gonna need more safe spaces.
  • Speaking of entitled snowflakes, the bicycle riders of Portland, Oregon are up in arms after the leftist Democrat-dominated legislature passed a budget package that includes a $15 excise tax on the purchase of high-dollar bikes.  This move comes a year after the legislature raised the state’s gasoline tax by 10 cents/gallon, a move that prompted complaints from car owners tired of having to dodge bike-riding scofflaws in their daily commutes that bicycle-riders weren’t paying their fair share for road maintenance.  Of course, snowflakes protested the move.  BikePortland publisher Jonathan Maus called it “an unprecedented step in the wrong direction.  We are taxing the healthiest, most inexpensive, most environmentally friendly, most efficient and most economically sustainable form of transportation ever devised by the human species.”  Yes, and you are also not exempt from paying taxes.  If you can afford a $2,000 bicycle, you can also afford a $15 tax, especially given that Oregon has no sales tax.  Toughen up.
  • In other news, Senate Republicans appear to be intent upon committing political hari-kari, as the defection of two staunch conservatives, Mike Lee and Jerry Moran, ensured the death of the current legislative vehicle for reforming Obamacare in the Senate.  Majority Leader Mitch McConnell announced that his strategy will now shift to a straight repeal of Obamacare, with an ensuing effort to pass a bi-partisan reform bill.  Given that almost every Senate Republican already voted in favor of a straight repeal multiple times while Obama was in office, one might think they would easily do so again.  But one would be wrong in thinking that.  There is no more dangerous and faulty assumption to make than assuming intellectual consistency from DC establishment Republicans.  It’s going to be a long, hot summer.

Just another day in milquetoast Republicans America.

CalExit is Dead in Name Only

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

  • The whole “CalExit” secession movement might be dead for the time being, but California’s radical leftist political class remains intent on separating their state from the rest of the U.S. in every way imaginable.  Despite being so near insolvency that Governor Jerry Brown has had to beg the federal government for massive monetary assistance no fewer than four times during the first half of 2017, the state’s Attorney General, the execrable Xavier Becerra, announced on Friday that he was adding four more states to California’s own travel ban.  This travel ban prevents state employees from traveling to other states in the union which have implemented policies with which California’s lunatic public officials don’t agree.  The ban list now applies to 8 states, including Texas, which sets up an interesting test case when football season begins in September.  San Jose State is currently scheduled to travel to Austin that month to get its collective ass whipped by the Texas Longhorns.  The problem here is that the Spartans’ coaching staff are all state employees.  It will be interesting to see how the team fares, playing a game against a superior opponent with no coaches on the sideline.
  • In other lamebrain California policymaker news, the Democrat plan to implement a Canadian-style single-payer healthcare system was finally pulled by the Assembly Speaker on Friday, ending a farce everyone knew was doomed to fail.  Seems it’s kind of hard for a state that already sports a massive annual budget deficit to come up with the $400 billion it would take to fund such a system on an annual basis.  Yes, that’s “Billion” – it’s not a typo.
  • Finally, Democrats in Los Angeles are considering a proposal to re-name Rodeo Drive “Barack Obama Boulevard”.  You know Rodeo Drive, right – that famous street where preening leftwing hucksters sell gaudy, over-hyped products for insanely high prices?  Hey, sounds just like ObamaCare!  How fitting is that?
  • The University of Texas and the Texas Tribune released a new poll pretending to show Donald Trump is highly unpopular in the Lone Star State.  The poll doesn’t make its sampling method public, but it does break down its findings between Republicans, Democrats and Independents.  Doing a little extrapolating seems to show that the pollsters surveyed more Democrats than they did Republicans.  This would have been an appropriate sample breakdown in 1990, the last time Democrats dominated an election in Texas.  The last time the voters of Texas elected a single Democrat in a statewide election was 1994.  Just another #fakepoll.  Sad to see it coming from UT.
  • Meanwhile, in our nation’s capital, the Democrats’ “Russia Collusion” fantasy play has become so toxic to voters that many Democrat members of congress are banding together to try to force San Fran Nan, Cryin’ Chuckie Schumer and the rest of the Democrat congressional leadership to stop even talking about it.  These Democrats actually want and expect their leaders to talk about real issues instead.  Hilarious.  That’s like expecting your dog to quit eating its own vomit.  Not gonna happen.

Just another day in lunatic Democrat America.

That is all.

Today’s Campaign Update (Because The Campaign Never Ends) – 3.7.2017

  • That uncomfortable moment when the #climatefraud chickens come home to roost – The Wall Street Journal reports that the secessionist future nation of California has had so much rain this year (hey, whatever happened to that “permanent drought” all the global warming nutjobs claimed the state would never get out of?) that the state has now run out of space in which to store water.  Californians can thank Democrats and their benefactors in the environmental movement, who have run the state for the last 40 years, and during that time, prevented the state from building a single new water surface reservoir.  The really dangerous part of all of this is that the state has had record snowfall up in the mountains this winter, and that snow is just now beginning to melt.  “And Noah said there will come a great flood.”  Can’t wait to see President Trump’s response when Jerry Brown comes begging for money again in a few weeks to bail him out of a situation he did so much to help create.
  • What, me worry? – Failed campaign manager for the Most Corrupt Woman in America Robby Mook was on Fox and Friends this morning talking about the growing Obama/Trump wiretapping scandal.  While all other Democrats are uniformly calling for the Justice Department to appoint a special counsel to investigate the case, I couldn’t help noticing that Mr. Mook wanted no part of any such thing, specifically calling instead for “bi-partisan congressional committees” to handle the investigation.  The reason is obvious:  Mr. Mook and Ms. Corrupt Woman want no part of a real investigation into any of this, and they know they can rely on Democrats on those congressional committees to stonewall any investigation that delves into what the Corrupt Woman and her evil minions knew about all of this, and more importantly, when they knew it.
  • Hey, with all the journalistic fakery going on around him, what’s a guy to do? – The Washington Post has been giving us fake reporters, fake editors and fake op/ed writers for many years, but yesterday it was revealed – not by the WaPo, but the NY Daily News – that the fake newspaper is now branching out into giving us fake ICE agents.  Itai Ozderman, identified only as a “tech worker” at the WaPo, was arrested a month ago for impersonating an ICE agent in the state of Virginia multiple times, even to the point of trying to enforce criminal laws.  No word if the managers at the WaPo plan to promote Mr. Ozderman and give him a raise, as they do with all their fake journalists whenever they’re caught faking the news.
  • Hey, remember that Ben Hur remake?  Let’s re-make yet another movie nobody will want to go see! – The geniuses out in Hollywood announced yesterday that Steven Spielberg will direct a new film that re-tells the story of Daniel Ellsberg, the leaker of the Pentagon Papers during the Nixon years.  The film will star Meryl Streep and Tom Hanks, and will show the “vital role of the press in keeping government honest,” a role the press uniformly surrendered back in 2008.  The film will very predictably tank miserably at the box office.  Because that’s what an intellectually bankrupt film-making community does these days.

Just another day in fake news media America.

That is all.
