Comey’s Convoluted Con Continues, and Sessions Starts Clearing the Decks

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Why is NBC News such a cesspit of sexual harrassment? – Tom Brokaw got his #Metoo moment on the same day Bill Cosby was convicted of being a serial rapist.  The long-time NBC Nightly News and Today Show host was accused by former NBC and Fox News reporter Linda Vester of creating a very, very hostile work environment, quite similar to the environment that former Today Show host Matt Lauer created while he was at NBC.

NBC News is certainly not alone in having employed a series of skirt-chasing anchormen with egos as out-sized as the fictional Ron Burgundy, but it sure does seem to have been sex abuse central for the mainstream fake news media over the past 30 years.  And let’s never, ever forget that NBC aired the wildly popular Cosby Show, starring a serial rapist who drugged his victims, during the same years Brokaw was the star of its news division.

And these people wonder why journalists are held in the same level of esteem as used car salesmen.

Please, just don’t come to Texas. Economists Art Laffer and Stephen Moore have an op/ed in the Wall Street Journal in which they predict that as many as 800,000 mainly wealthy people will flee the extreme high-tax states of California and New York in the next few years, as the provisions of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act kick in.  Laffer and Moore predict that the limitations on deductions for state income, sales and property taxes will simply make it too expensive for these people to remain in their current home states.

The other 48 states in the union should look on at this story in horror, because the problem with New Yorkers and Californians fleeing to other states to get away from high taxes and high costs of living is this:  They go to other states and just keep voting for the same kind of idiot Democrats whose policy decisions caused them to flee in the first place.

Migrating Californians have already basically destroyed the state of Colorado; they’re responsible for sending the execrable John Tester to represent the state of Montana in the U.S. Senate; and they’re at least partly responsible for turning the once-quaint college town of Austin into a liberal nirvana of wildly-expensive, riderless light rail and bike lanes that make it pretty much impossible to get anywhere in the center city in less than half an hour.

Laffer and Moore say the migration won’t be limited to California and New York, stating “The losers will be most of the Northeast, along with California. The winners are likely to be states like Arizona, Nevada, Tennessee, Texas and Utah.”

Well, that all depends on how you define the word “winners.”  Those states should be very, very careful what they ask for, because politically, these people are barely distinguishable from a plague of locusts.

Comey’s Convoluted Con Continues. – I was going to talk about the fact that the Korean War is about to come to a formal end thanks to the aggressive foreign policies pursued by President Donald Trump, but as I was putting together this morning’s Campaign Update, the President just issued this tweet:

The teen drama queen ex-FBI Director who Mr. Trump had the “pleasure” of firing made the mistake of subjecting himself to a real interview with a real journalist – Fox News’s Bret Baier – last night, and the results were indeed rather stunning.

Here are just a few of the obvious, blatant lies Comey blurted out during the very tough questioning from Mr. Baier:

  • He claims that he still, to this day, does not know that the fake Trump Dossier was funded by the DNC and the Pantsuit Princess Campaign;
  • Even better, he repeated the claim that the work on the fake dossier was initially funded by Republicans, a bald-faced lie that was debunked months ago;
  • He continued to insist that his memos of conversations with Trump were not an FBI work product, saying that “I always thought of it as mine, like a diary.”  A diary?  Really???  Do you see now why I call him a teen drama queen?   The director of the FBI knows better than to make this hilariously false claim;
  • He laughably claims to this day to see no bias evident in the texts between Peter Strzok and his mistress, Lisa Page:  “When I saw the texts, I was deeply disappointed in them, but I never saw any bias.”  Holy crap;
  • And of course, he continues to claim that the four memos he leaked to his pal, Columbia Law Professor Andrew Richman, who then leaked them to the New York Times, do not constitute leaking;

Upon hearing that final claim, South Carolina Cong. Trey Gowdy, who is himself a former prosecutor, said that “what he defines as a ‘leak’ is what everybody else calls a ‘felony’.”

At this point, watching Comey give an interview is eerily reminiscent of that scene in The Godfather II, when Michael Corleone is called to testify before a congressional committee.  That’s not a good look on a guy who has been leaking classified information, lying to congress and probably obstructing justice to be putting on each’s night’s 5 o’clock news.

Mr. Mueller, tear up that big bag of nothing! – Finally, while all of that other stuff was going on, Attorney General Jeff Sessions, during his own testimony to congress yesterday, publicly advised Special Counsel Robert Mueller to take his giant bag of nothing against President Trump and wrap it up.  The fake news media of course did its best to bury this huge development – here’s a link to a typical example, a story on the matter from CNBC, which buries the lede in the very last sentence of a 500-word piece.

Because that’s what our fake news media does.  But no matter – you can bet Mueller heard Mr. Sessions’ message loud and clear.  Sessions didn’t just say that in testimony before congress for the sake of hearing himself talk.

Oh, and by the way, in case you missed it, Rod Rosenstein is “taking a pause” from his duties managing Mr. Mueller, ostensibly because he’s just the only guy in the whole Department of Justice who can argue a particular case before the Supreme Court.  Ok, sure.  The duties of managing Mueller have been assumed by Trump appointee, Solicitor General Noel Francisco.  Good timing there.  I’m sure it’s all just a coincidence.

Or maybe it’s this:  The decks are being cleared for the issuance of the Inspector General’s report in May, and Sessions was advising Mueller that it is time to shut the Witch Hunt down and let real justice take its course.  And Rosenstein’s “pause” was a great way for him to recuse without using the word “recuse.”  The word “pause” looks so much better in fake news media headlines.

Just another day in the conspiracy to end the Trump presidency is falling apart America.

That is all.

Trump and North Korea: Proof The Reagan Doctrine Works

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Barbara Bush, America’s matriarch, Rest In Peace.

Tired of all this Winning yet?  – It turns out that not everybody in California is crazy after all.  On Tuesday, the San Diego County board of supervisors became the latest local government to vote to support the Trump Administration’s lawsuit challenging the Golden State’s sanctuary state law.  The County joins neighboring Orange County and cities like San Juan Capistrano, Los Alamitos, Huntington Beach, Aliso Viejo, Mission Viejo and Escondido in opposing the state’s open borders law.

All of the cities and counties listed above are, of course, at the southern end of the state, and thus bear the brunt of the negative impacts of open borders policies advocated by Governor Jerry Brown and the state’s openly seditious Democrat Party.  Some may characterize these actions as futile gestures, but the intervention into lawsuits like this by impacted parties play a key role in the judicial process.  In this case, they show that there are still people in California who care about the good of the country as a whole, which is a very gratifying thing indeed.

When you appoint a true strict constructionist justice, you get strict constructionist decisions. – Many observers were surprised on Tuesday when the Supreme Court issued an immigration-related decision in which Trump appointee Neil Gorsuch sided with the four liberals on the court to deal the administration a setback.  The case revolved around how U.S. deportation law defines a violent crime for the purpose of deporting illegal immigrants to their home country.  Gorsuch joined the court’s liberal minority in ruling that the definition was overly vague and thus unenforceable under the Constitution.

Anyone who is surprised by his ruling should make themselves aware that, in 2015, the man Gorsuch replaced on the court, the late Antonin Scalia, ruled that similar language in a law imposing longer prison sentences on repeat offenders was also unconstitutional for the same reason.  Thus, while this decision by Gorsuch is inconvenient for the Trump administration, the fact that he ruled as he did should actually be encouraging to anyone who calls themselves a conservative.

Liberals opposed Gorsuch because they believed he would be a down-the-line strict constructionist, like Justice Scalia.  Turns out, they were right for once.

“In today’s news, North and South Korean end war, now back to rolling video of a porn star.” – Lost in all the fake news media frenzy over porn stars and Sean Hannity lawyers yesterday was the amazingly consequential announcement by South Korea leaders that they are meeting with the leaders of North Korea this week to change the 65 year-old armistice agreement between the two countries into the formal ending to the state of war between them.  After pretty much burying the story yesterday, the fake news media and Democrat paid liars will no doubt spend today trying to tell us all how Barack Obama somehow deserves credit for this amazing turn of events.

The truth, of course, is that everything Obama did related to the situation on the Korean peninsula during his 8 disastrous years in office simply made the situation worse, and this current easing of tensions there is purely President Trump’s doing.  Later in the day, the President also announced to the slack-jawed White House press corps of fake journalists that the administration was already engaged with North Korean emissaries in negotiations “at very high levels.”  Early this morning, the President tweeted that Secretary of State nominee Mike Pompeo had actually met with North Korea’s Crazy Little Fat Guy late last week, characterizing the meeting as having gone “very smoothly.”:

Obviously, we are still a long way from real denuclearization of the Korean peninsula, but there is real progress taking place in that direction, a progress that our three prior administrations spent a quarter of a century failing to advance.  There is no magic to any of this – what Trump has been doing with the Crazy Little Fat Guy is promoting the Reagan Doctrine of “Peace through strength.”  24 years of appeasement policies only emboldened and enabled the succession of three different Kim dictators to pursue their nuclear ambitions, pretty much with impunity.

Now that a leader of the United States has demonstrated clearly that this country is willing to confront not only North Korea, but also its benefactors in China on the matter, we see this sudden desire to engage in real negotiations.  Amazing how that works.  Well, amazing to liberals and fake journalists, anyway.

Just another day in appeasement never works America.

Another Sunday, Another Trump Tweetstorm

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Tired of all this Winning yet?  – Hey, Californians, you’re in luck!  The feds are going to audit Governor Jerry “Moonbeam” Brown’s high speed rail project, and, if the audit is conducted honestly, will likely conclude that it is time to cut off funding for the single biggest boondoggle in American history.

Yes, dear readers, it isn’t bad enough that California’s utterly corrupt Democrat political class has already wasted billions of Californians’ dollars on this high-speed rail pipe dream, they’ve also already wasted $3.5 billion federal dollars, and are planning on wasting tens of billions more before the atrocity is completed, if indeed it ever is.  Thus far, not an inch of rail has been laid, despite the fact that the “project” has already been technically in progress for a decade, and the only segment for which there is even a firm plan is a 119-mile piece of line that would connect Fresno with Bakersfield.

So, they’ve got a plan to span the Central Valley, which covers a whopping 4.7% of the state’s population, but as of today, there is not even an existing plan to connect either end of that segment to Los Angeles or San Francisco, which is the ultimate outcome of the Moonbeam PipeDream.  Had the Pantsuit Princess won the 2016 election, nobody in Washington would have given a tinker’s damn about any of this, but Donald Trump won that election, and his administration wants to identify the sinkhole into which that $3.5 billion of federal dollars disappeared before the national government agrees to waste any more money on this idiotic endeavor.

So the Transportation Department’s Inspector General’s office announced on Thursday that it plans to try to figure it all out, and hold some people accountable for the first time in the Moonbeam PipeDream’s 10-year history.  If Californian’s are lucky, the IG will uncover good reasons to shut the thing down, and save them from having to fork over any more of their tax dollars for this bit of nitwittery, the estimated completion cost of which has risen from $33 billion to $77 billion in just the last several years.

“Mission Accomplished”, President Trump! – As I write this piece on Sunday morning, President Trump just issued the following hilarious tweet:

He is, of course, correct on every count where the fake news media is concerned.  And if you doubt he used that term intentionally, knowing it would create the exact media action it created, then you just haven’t been paying attention.

Never stop tweeting, Mr. President.  Please, never, never, never, ever stop.

A bit earlier on Sunday morning, Mr. Trump tossed these two tweets into the mix:

These are actually really good questions, and they are questions that an honest news media establishment would be demanding that Attorney General Jeff Sessions and everyone else at the Justice Department answer.  But, of course, we have a fake news media, one that has been more than happy to allow these questions to linger unasked for over a year and a half now.

The one new revelation mentioned by the President this morning is the allegation in Comey’s book that he felt the need to assume full control of the ultimate disposition of his sham “investigation” into the Pantsuit Princess’s illegal emailing actions due to some “revelation” about then- Attorney General Loretta Lynch about which the American public still has no knowledge.

What, Lynch’s meeting with the suspect’s husband, Bill Clinton, on the tarmac at the Phoenix airport less than a week before the Coughing Crook was to be fake-interviewed by the FBI wasn’t bad enough?  Her insistence that Comey refer to the fake investigation as a “matter” and downplay it all to the fake media wasn’t the extent of her malfeasance?  There’s even more?

Now, Comey could just be lying about all of this – he’s done so much lying in the public domain already that literally nothing he says can be taken at face value by any sentient being at this point.  And if there is something there, it all would be within the scope of the investigation by IG Michael Horowitz into the DOJ/FBI corruption during the 2016 elections, so it is possible we will find out what Comey is talking about when that report is finally, at long last, issued in May.

There is far, far too much relevant information about all of this that is still being withheld from the American public, and that is a direct result of the reality that our country no longer possesses a real, independent media establishment.  What Edmund Burke and other founders liked to refer to as the Fourth Estate is dead, so utterly corrupt and agenda-driven that it is completely useless to the public as a source of information and a check on real government abuse.

This reality, far more than any other single factor, is a pressing and direct threat to our nation’s ultimate survival as a free country.  Somehow, we must find a means of correcting it.

Just another day in the fake news media actively facilitating corruption America.

Here’s Why Trump is Suddenly Tweeting About Mueller by Name

The Evening Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

So, the fake news media spent most of the past two days focusing on the fact that President Donald Trump, for the first time, issued a series of tweets criticizing Special Counsel Robert Mueller by name over the weekend.  The fake media’s take on this is that the President is nuts, that he just gets upset and for no reason at all blurts stuff like this out on his Twitter feed while drinking Diet Cokes and eating Big Mac’s at 2:00 in the morning.

To understand why that assessment – the conventional wisdom in Washington, DC – is completely, totally, 100% wrong, let’s go back to February 28, and the piece I posted that day explaining why the President had called out both Attorney General Jeff Sessions and DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz in a tweet earlier that same day.

In that piece, I discussed the fact that Mr. Trump really doesn’t just toss inflammatory stuff out onto Twitter for no reason, that there is a long history of there being a method to the seeming (in the media’s eyes) madness.  And I pointed out the likelihood that that particular seeming attack on Sessions and Horowitz’s integrity was in fact designed to elicit the exact response that he ended up getting from the fake news media, which was day after day of defense of both men’s integrity.

Why?  My assumption was that it was because Trump was expecting something big from both men in the coming days.  Specifically, I posited that we were probably going to see the issuance of the IG’s report from his 14 month-long investigation of wrongdoing within the FBI and DOJ during the first week or two of March.  That obviously didn’t happen, but think about what has happened since February 28:

  • First, the Attorney General went to the outlaw state of California and announced that his Justice Department would be withholding funds from and filing suit against the state challenging its clearly unconstitutional “sanctuary state” law;
  • Next, the DOJ Office of Professional Responsibility (OPR) sends Sessions a report recommending the termination of former Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe, a recommendation based on – guess what? – a finding from IG Michael Horowitz;
  • Finally, Sessions makes the decision to fire McCabe, as he should have done.

The media’s instinctive reaction was to go on full attack against Sessions, but then, at some point on Sunday, reality began to set in that they  were going after the same guy they were all defending just two weeks ago, and the feeding frenzy began to fall away.

Now, the President goes after Mueller on Saturday, and all the Democrats with press passes leap to defend the Special Counsel in glowing terms normally reserved for anyone with the last name of Obama.  And by the way, that all takes place right after they also all leapt to the defense of McCabe as being the second coming of Mother Teresa, which will come back to haunt them should McCabe keep his word and start tossing other media favorites – like James Comey – under the bus.

So what do you all think is probably about to happen next?

Well, what is NOT going to happen is Trump firing Mueller.  All the fake reporters would love that, but that has never been in the President’s plans.

What IS likely going to happen is some move by Mueller that is broadly positive for the President.  No idea what that might be, but here are some possibilities:

  • Announcement of indictments of Tony Podesta and others involved in his now-defunct lobbying firm;
  • Announcement of the vacation of the guilty plea by General Mike Flynn;
  • Announcement that the “setting aside” of Mueller’s investigation into potential obstruction of justice made public a few days ago is actually a permanent dropping of that line of inquiry;
  • Announcement that Mueller no longer feels the need to conduct an interview with the President.

Could be one of those things, could be something entirely different.  In any event, this feels like President Trump preparing the playing field for some significant event involving Mueller.  And when it feels that way, that’s what generally happens.

Buckle up.

Don’t Expect the Democrat Party’s Farrakhan Chickens to Come Home to Roost in November

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Democrats in Action, Part I – A Democrat who sits on the city council in Washington, DC, took to his Facebook account on Sunday to blame a sudden snowstorm on…wait for it…no, really, you have got to wait for this one…the JEWS!  I swear I don’t make this stuff up.

“It’s climate manipulation and D.C. keep talking about ‘we are a resilient city’ and that’s a model based off the Rothschilds controlling the climate to create natural disasters they can pay for to own the cities, man. Be careful,” said council member Trayon White, Sr., who is an actual elected official in our nation’s capital.  The Rothschilds, of course, are a very wealthy European Jewish family.  Mr. White is no doubt a follower of the execrable Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan, which means he’s just your basic mainstream Democrat these days.

White later apologized, sort of, saying that “I did not intend to be Anti-Semitic [sic], and I see I should not have said that after learning from my colleagues,” White said. He added that he was working to “understand the history of comment [sic] made against Jews.”

So, he had to be educated by his “colleagues”, i.e., other nitwit Democrats, that it’s ok to hate the Jews in private, but you probably don’t want to go talking about it on your Facebook account.  Gotcha.

Democrats in Action, Part II – Speaking of the execrable Louis Farrakhan, The Soros-funded organization behind The Women’s March is losing top staffers and members due to its recently-revealed ties to the racist hate-monger.  Note that none of these deranged Democrats had any problem at all with the group’s ongoing association with the equally execrable radical Islamist Linda Sarsour.  If I were an African American Democrat voter, I might be wondering why that is the case?

The sad irony here is that, despite the Democrat Party’s open association with Mr. Farrakhan – the DNC’s deputy chairman, Keith Ellison, is a known associate, after all – when Jewish voters go to the polls this coming November, most of them will vote for Democrats, just as most Catholic Americans keep voting for Democrats despite that Party’s open hostility to their religion of choice.  It is truly a mind-boggling facet of American society.

Democrats in Action, Part III – Maine Democrat legislator Michelle Dubois has demanded that state officials change the name of one of the entrances to the state’s capital building because, she says, it is an affront to “women’s dignity.”  The entrance is called the “General Hooker Entrance,” and Ms. Dubois finds that, like, totally offensive.  Of course – and you Republicans know what’s coming here without me having to say it – the entrance is named for famed Civil War General John J. Hooker, who was a native of Maine.  I swear, I swear, I swear I do not make this stuff up.  Who could?

He fixes elections much more efficiently than the DNC and Hillary Clinton. – To no one’s surprise, Vladimir Putin was re-“elected” to yet another term as dictator of Russia, “winning” a whopping 73.9% of the vote.  Somewhere, the Pantsuit Princes is berating Debbie Wasserman Schultz for her under-performance in fixing the Democrat nominating process in 2016.  Fake journalists at CNN were busy constructing a narrative that proves Putin’s victory was the direct result of collusion with Donald Trump.

*Sigh*  No, it didn’t. – Some guy named Ryan Goodman, writing for some fake news site called “JustSecurity”, claims that Attorney General Jeff Sessions’ firing of Andrew McCabe, which was based on McCabe’s lying to the DOJ Inspector General about media leaks related to the Clinton email scandal, somehow violates Sessions’ “recusal” from the Russia Collusion investigation.  This is possibly the dumbest thing you’ll read all week.  I say “possibly” only because Juan Williams still works for Fox, and Chris Cuomo remains on the air at CNN.

All evidence to the contrary aside, there are still sane people living in California. – City Council members in the Calfornia town of Los Alamitos will vote this week approve an ordinance declaring the city to be exempt from the state’s patently unconstitutional “sanctuary state” law.  The ordinance correctly notes that the state law “may be in direct conflict with federal laws and the Constitution,” and that the council “finds that it is impossible to honor our oath to support and defend the Constitution of the United States.”  So next time a friend remarks that all the sane people have fled California and moved to Colorado or Austin, you can respond with “Nope, there is still at least one little enclave of clear thinking in Los Alamitos.”

Just another day in Jews controlling the weather 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.

America’s Progressive Sub-Cultures – Festering Cesspits of Anti-Woman Depravity

Today’s Campaign Update 

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

  • Why are all Progressive Democrat-dominated institutions such festering cesspits of anti-woman depravity? – The LA Times has a big expose’ this morning that chronicles complaints by dozens of women about the culture of sexual harassment that exists in California’s state capital building.  California government, of course, is dominated by the Democrat Party, which holds super-majority status in both houses of the legislature, the governor’s office, and thus the vast majority of jobs in the state’s myriad government agencies.  Wait, aren’t the Democrats supposed to be the protectors of women’s rights?  Don’t most liberals and progressives and communists who infest the Democrat Party claim to be feminists?  Well, if you believe those things about Democrats, you haven’t been paying close attention lately.
  • Then there’s ABC, a completely leftwing-dominated fake news organization which apparently saw fit to employ a serial sexual harassment specialist – current very liberal NBC political analyst Mark Halperin – for the better part of a decade without ever doing anything to stop his activities.  Like the good Clinton disciples they all are, ABC’s executives will all no doubt claim they had no idea Halperin was preying on young women in their offices, but trust me, I spent 38 years in corporate workplaces, and whenever there is a pathological sexual harasser active in the workplace, most everyone knows.  Anyone who worked closely with Halperin in ABC’s offices during that time and claims to have had no idea what he was up to is almost certainly lying.
  • And it’s not just ABC where Halperin is concerned.  While HBO has cut ties with Halperin, uniformly liberal NBC continues to employ the creep.  No doubt, we will soon see him resume his regular gig with all his leftwing pals on “Morning Joe”.  Of course, Joe, Mika and all the other liberal regulars on that show claim to have had no idea that their morning coffee buddy was a serial woman abuser.  Those Clintonian talking points sure do get around.
  • And speaking of lying about not knowing, next we have all the Democrat politicians and leftwing actors who are today claiming they had no idea what Harvey Weinstein was up to during his 30-year reign of terror over seemingly every aspiring actress in Hollywood.  Weinstein, who over the years gave and raised millions of dollars for Democrat politicians, is just the tip of the vast iceberg of the rampant anti-woman culture that has dominated the almost uniformly leftwing Hollywood community pretty much since its inception a century ago.  Even the leftwing women – like Meryl Streep, who once called Weinstein “my God” on national television – who claim to be friends of the hundreds of women who were abused by Weinstein and other men who have been exposed thus far, tell us they just had no idea that all this was going on.
  • Think of that:  A century of a culture in which men rampantly and ubiquitously abuse women, and apparently no one noticed until the NYTimes outed the ogre Weinstein on its front page.  Is that really possible?  No, of course it isn’t possible.
  • In all of these cases, in all of these various Democrat-dominated sub-cultures of our society, what is the common denominator (other than that the players are almost all leftwing Democrats)?  The common thread in all of them is that everyone in these Democrat-dominated sub-cultures is happy as a clam to remain quiet while women are serially abused, because they think they stand to benefit from the abusers.
  • The Weinstein example is obvious.  Weinstein wielded enormous influence and power, and produced high profile films in which most everyone in Hollywood wanted to eventually be involved.  No one wanted to cross the Ogre because they knew doing so would inevitably harm their career.  So they remained silent and pretended not to know.
  • With Halperin, ABC had a rising star in the realm of political news.  His presence as the network’s director of political news lent credibility to the operation that it obviously did not deserve.  Plus, doing anything to stop Halperin probably meant litigation and public scandal, and no corporation wants to deal with that.  So ABC execs did nothing and waited for their problem to go away, which he eventually did.
  • In the California legislature, well, everything there is all about power and influence, i.e., just like Harvey Weinstein in Hollywood.  There’s no mystery here.
  • I could go into many other examples, such as the reality that the entire Democrat Party has become active supporters of the implementation of Sharia law in various Muslim communities around the country, and will remain so as long as it can rely on most U.S. Muslims to reliably vote for Democrats.  Nothing says anti-women’s rights like the implementation of Sharia law.
  • But this is today’s Democrat Party, and today’s liberal cultures in America.  Women who continue to support it do so at their own peril.

Just another day in anti-woman Democrats America.

That is all.

Nancy Pelosi: Leadership Through XX Chromosomes

Today’s Campaign Update 

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

  • Presumably, they picked Mugabe because Idi Amin is dead. – If you wonder why supporters of President Donald Trump (I never get tired of typing that) have no regard at all for international multi-lateral organizations, look no further than the decision by the sleazebags who run the World Health Organization (WHO) to name Zimbabwe thug Robert Mugabe as its newest “World Health Ambassador.”  Yes, Robert Mugabe – I swear I don’t make this stuff up.  For those out of this particular loop, Mugabe has brutalized the Zimbabwean population for decades now, murdering and maiming its citizens on a scale comparable to Fidel Castro.  During his reign of terror, Mugabe has utterly destroyed the nation’s healthcare system for the vast majority of the population there, a system that was once the envy of Africa.  The situation with healthcare in Zimbabwe is so awful, in fact, that Mugabe himself goes to other countries for his own treatments.
  • So naturally, this is the guy who the utterly corrupt people in charge at the WHO, a UN-affiliated organization, choose to honor.  It shouldn’t even need saying at this point, but stuff like this is why Donald Trump is President today.
  • Hey, why not deed that spot to Rep. Clowny McPartyBarn of Florida?  Xe’d be great, and we’re pretty sure xe’s a woman. – Nancy Pelosi appeared with the four screechers on “The View” Friday, and told them that the reason why she needs to remain the head of the Democrat minority in the U.S. House of Representatives is based entirely on her gender.  Not kidding:  “I was ready to go if Hillary won, have a woman at the top of the table, protecting the Affordable Care Act, which is to me similar to Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid,” she told the assembled hosts, but she said that she was the only woman at her table at a White House dinner a month ago, so  “that’s why I have to stay there, to be one of the top women, top people at the table.”
  • Well, darn, if the only qualification to be House Minority Leader these days is being a woman, there are plenty of other Democrat women in the House.  Why not give the spot to Maxine Waters?  Doesn’t she count?  How about Debbie Wasserman-Schulz?  She as corrupt as the people at the WHO, and even ran the whole Democrat Party into the ground while Obama was President – why not her?  Or how about Linda Sanchez?  She’s a woman, she’s Hispanic, AND she’s from California, too.  She can sit at a table as well as any other woman, right?  Or how about Clowny McPartyBarn?  She’s a woman, plus she’d be the first rodeo clown to ever become minority leader.  Why not her?
  • Altogether, there are currently 62 Democrat women serving in the House of Representatives today.  If the only qualification to be the Democrats’ minority leader is the possession of two X chromosomes, then why should the Party allow itself to continue to be saddled with SanFranNan’s X chromosomes as its public face?
  • Of course, the truth here is that conservatives everywhere are thrilled to death that Nancy Pelosi remains the face of the Democrat Party, and are hoping and praying she will remain its face through at least the 2018 mid-term elections, and longer.  Her ongoing presence as the dominant Democrat on the national stage virtually ensures that the GOP will increase its Senate majority next year and hold onto its majority in the House.  Republicans love, love, love having SanFranNan to campaign against, and will do anything they can to ensure she continues to cling to power.
  • Speaking of corrupt women who just won’t go away, Hillary Clinton, still shamelessly hawking her terrible book in Britain, told an interviewer on Saturday that she and hubby Bill seriously considered not attending the Trump inauguration, but were convinced otherwise only when they learned the Bushes and Carters would be in attendance.  That claim came just two days after she told another interviewer that she and Bill never even thought about not going, because attending was their duty.  The woman would rather lie than tell the truth, even when it does her no good.  She will never change.

Just another day SanFranNan’s America.

That is all.

The Best Solution To The Weinstein Problem? CalExit!

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

  • Democrats everywhere gave her an “A” for effort. – After President Trump issued an executive order that would enable small businesses and individuals to form health insurance associations across state lines and thus demand lower premiums for insurance policies, San Fran Nan Pelosi told reporters that “I don’t know what he’s putting out today, but I do know it’s a sabotage” of Obamacare.  Hey, give her a break:  She didn’t know what was in Obamacare, either, and still doesn’t.  At least Pelosi was able to remember and recite the day’s Democrat/fake media code word – which every Democrat and fake reporters used all day long – related to the President’s executive order, which of course was “sabotage.”  She had no idea why she was using it, but at least she managed to use it.
  • How about “Hobgoblin”?  No?  Ok, what about “Rotten tomato”?  Wait, that’s two words… – Today, the President will very likely terminate U.S. sponsorship of the Obama/Kerry idiotic deal with Iran, and we can only speculate on what the Democrat/media code word will be related to this action.  “Reckless”, perhaps?  “Irresponsible”?  No, that’s too many syllables, Pelosi could never remember it.  “Dark”?  No, they only use that when he’s talking about putting America first.  Hmmmmmm…I’m going with “reckless.”  Let’s sit back and see what happens.
  • Meanwhile, in Harvey Weinstein world… – Stuff got real for Amazon grand poobah Jeff Bezos yesterday afternoon, as director/actor/producer Rose McGowan turned her one-woman war on Hollywood in an unexpected direction.  While she didn’t accuse Bezos himself of any bad sexual behavior, she went off on the head of Amazon’s movie studio with a vengeance, accusing him of covering for Weinstein after she had informed him that Weinstein had raped her.  She ended her tweetstorm by imploring Bezos to “Be the change you want to see in the world.  Stand with the truth.”
  • Interestingly, while every other major media outlet on the face of the earth seems to have run a story on the McGowan/Bezos dustup, the Washington Post, which Bezos owns, apparently did not find this story newsworthy.  Go figure.
  • In response not to McGowan’s accusations, but to a separate accusation made by producer Isa Hackett Dick, Amazon did see fit to suspend the studio chief in question, some guy named Roy Price.  My goodness, what a cesspit of depravity Hollywood is turning out to be, and we haven’t even gotten to the pedophiles.  Yet.
  • CalExit is the solution! – This whole Weinstein deal ought to remind every thinking American out in the 98% of the country that lies outside of the major media centers that there is an organized, dedicated effort to have California secede from the United States, most commonly referred to as “CalExit”.  And lo and behold, the Sacramento Bee carried a story about this effort yesterday, in which backers of this secession effort say they believe they have an easier path to taking their state out of the union than the Catalonians have to separate their region from Spain.
  • While that’s not exactly a low bar, it gives the organizers hope:  “There are definitely similarities in the fiscal situation – we both give more than we get back,” said Dave Marin, director of research and policy for the California Freedom Coalition. “But there’s more flexibility in the U.S. Constitution for secession than there is in the Spanish one. California has more tools available to it.”  Honestly, it should give the rest of us a little hope as well that maybe, sometime in the near future, the cesspit of depravity that is Harvey Weinstein World will reside in a whole separate country.  Seems like a very reasonable solution, doesn’t it?
  • Incidentally, about that whole “we both give more than we get back” line of BS spouted by Mr. Marin:  I’m thinking this guy hasn’t considered what his state’s life would be like without all that water coming into LA from the Colorado River Basin.  And I’m thinking he hasn’t given a lot of thought to what it might cost his new country to recruit and maintain its own military forces, because if you think us “Normals” out here in flyover country are just going to smile and say “great!” when Californians come begging for water and our armed forces to protect them when things get real, you don’t really know us Normals, and you really don’t want to find out the answer to those questions the hard way.
  • But hey, go for it, Mr. Marin.  All I want to know about your effort really and truly is, how can I help make it happen?

Just another day in I have found the solution to the whole Weinstein problem America.

That is all.
