Saturday Trump Roundup – All The #Winning That’s Fit To Print

 

  • Tired of all this Winning yet?  Part I – For the 90th time since Election Day 2016, the Dow Jones Industrial Index closed at an all-time record high on Friday, and all other stock indeces did the same.  Do you really care that much about the President’s potty mouth?
  • Tired of all this Winning yet?  Part II – Retailers recorded the strongest holiday season sales in a decade.  Sales for November and December were up 5.5% over 2016.  Somewhere, Barack Obama’s talking points monkeys are trying to find a way for their guy to take credit.
  • Tired of all this Winning yet?  Part III – The IRS reported late Thursday that fully 90% of workers in the U.S. will see more take-home money in their paychecks as soon as February.  This is what San Fran Nan Pelosi refers to as “Armageddon.”
  • Tired of all this Winning yet?  Part IV – President Trump’s medical examination on Friday went “exceptionally well,” per the doctor in charge.  This is not really any surprise, but it is just one more nail in the coffin of the “Trump isn’t fit to hold the office” nonsense being pushed by the fake news media and the Democrats.
  • Tired of all this Winning yet?  Part V – Records show that the Yale psychiatry professor who unethically “diagnosed” the President as being mentally unstable doesn’t even have a license to practice.   Perhaps someone should diagnose her.
  • Where in the world is Hillary Clinton? Day 12. – Yes, friends, we are 12 days into 2018, and have still not heard a single public utterance from the Pantsuit Princess.  Oh, her Twitter account did issue a statement on the President’s “shithole” remark, but the Coughing Crook probably has a staff of half a dozen flunkies to man her Twitter feed.
  • I’m talking about actual words – you know, talking.  In public.  Not a word from the Fainting Felon, a dozen days into the year?  This is not normal.  Not normal at all.  Come to think of it, we haven’t seen anything out of Slick Willie either.  All year long.  Something’s up.  Wonder what it might be?
  • Speaking of Slick Willie, Elon Musk obviously learned a thing or two from him about public prevarication.  The headline at the Daily Caller this morning reads “Elon Musk Admits He Attended Sex Party, But That None Of The Activities Happened While He Was There”.   Sounds just like “Bill Clinton Admits To Smoking Pot, But Swears He Did Not Inhale”.  Slick must have lent Elon his old talking points monkeys.
  • Speaking of the Pantsuit Princess, New York Magazine revealed tape of abusive MSNBC fake host Chris Matthews – who somehow still has a job despite being revealed as a textbook harasser – talking about giving the Coughing Crook a “Bill Cosby pill” prior to interviewing her during the 2016 campaign.  ummmmm…that’s just gross.
  • The leftist UK Guardian ran a story on Friday titled “Is deep-red Texas ready for a gay Latina Democrat? Lupe Valdez thinks so”.  Ummm, no.  Probably not.  But it’s not because Ms. Valdez – who has led an incredibly admirable life that includes serving the country in the U.S. Army Reserve, and at the Department of Homeland Security before becoming Police Chief for the city of Dallas – is gay or Latina.  It’s because she’s in favor of abortion on demand, and she’s a Democrat in a state that hasn’t elected a Democrat to a statewide office since 1994.  No amount of wishful thinking on the part of the Texas Democrat Party or the fake news media is going to change that.  You don’t have to believe me – just ask Wendy Davis.
  • Paul Mirengoff has an excellent piece this morning at Powerline titled “Playing the Race Card on Immigration.”  You can read it for yourself – I highly recommend it – but I especially liked the closing line:  “It is cynical for Democrats and anti-Trumpers to play the race card in what is a legitimate policy dispute about immigration.”  Well, sure it is.  But playing the race card is all they got.
  • Finally, for all the Bernie Sanders fans out there, Daily Wire has a great piece this morning detailing the inevitable end game of Sanders’ socialist/communist policies that is playing itself out right now in Venezuela.  The headline reads “SOCIALIST PARADISE: Several Dead, 15 Injured In Fight For Food In Venezuela”.  Read the whole thing.  Seriously, just read it – it’ll do you good.  You might even learn something.
Just another day in Donald Trump just keeps Winning America.
That is all.

MSNBC’s Chris Matthews Becomes A #Metoo Test Case

  • Former Obama UN Ambassador Susan Rice, who is most famous for lying to the entire world about what got our people killed in the U.S. Embassy in Benghazi in 2012, weighed in on the demonstrations in Iran:  “How can Trump help Iran’s protesters?  Be quiet.”  That, of course, was the posture Barack Obama took towards a similar uprising in 2009, which helped sentence Iranians to 9 more years of rule under the yoke of the radical mullahs, who the Obama Administration actively supported and awarded access to hundreds of billions of dollars.  Were it not for radical Islamists, Barack Obama would have had no allies in the Middle East at all.  That’s the truth.
  • CNN didn’t have Kathy Griffin around for its New Year’s Eve telecast this year, but it did have some fake reporter named Randi Kaye to serve in Griffin’s former role as the personification of society’s lowest common denominator.  Ms. Kaye didn’t strip down to her bra or hold up a mocked-up bloody head of President Trump, but she did see fit to do a segment aboard one of Denver’s “CannaBus” party buses where everyone was getting stoned, even helping one passenger fire up a bong.  Meanwhile, on Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve, we found out that Britney Spears has gotten back into marvelous physical shape, but still can’t sing or dance.  But nobody in Vegas cares about the latter, obviously.
  • If you thought we knew all the Hillary Clinton scandals at this point, well, think again.  – WikiLeaks leaked another raft of emails on Monday, at least one of which shows the then-Clinton-headed State Department in 2010 receiving in advance the #fakenews publication schedule a week in advance from the New York Times.  If you think this sort of coordination between the fake news media and the Clinton/Obama people was an isolated thing, or that the Trump Administration probably receives similar head’s-up emails, you would be a very, very silly person.  You don’t have to believe me – just go Google “journolist” and read the results that come up for a nice refresher.
  • Al Franken is finally resigning today, but what about Chris Matthews?  Seriously, Franken’s resignation is a blessing for the country, but you have to wonder how MSNBC’s long-time host of “Hardball” will still be in his job by Friday after Sunday’s very detailed report from the Daily Caller about his maintenance of an extremely hostile work environment for women, with the help of a neglectful NBC human resources department and management.  Matthews, who has telegraphed all sorts of on-air cues indicating an abusively sexist mindset over the years, turns out, according to multiple people who worked with him at NBC, to be the guy they make all the sexual harassment videos about.  The Daily Caller’s report is every bit as well-sourced and explosive as was the New York Times’ report last fall on Harvey Weinstein that got the whole #Metoo movement started.  But, you might note that, because the Daily Caller is a “conservative” news outlet going after a very extreme liberal muckety-muck, none of the “mainstream” media outlets are picking up the story.  Imagine that.
  • This is a test case for my belief that the #Metoo thing is already running out of steam, as liberals all over the country finally figure out that it is mainly liberals who have been engaging in these horrible acts, and thus, it is mainly prominent liberals who are losing their jobs.  The radical left is also becoming increasingly concerned about the potential for the #Metoo movement to almost inevitably lead to increased scrutiny of the pedophilia issue that runs rampant in leftist circles, especially in Hollywood.  Plus, now that Roy Moore has been defeated in Alabama’s senate race, the #Metoo victims no longer provide Democrat politicians with convenient political fodder, so you can be sure that, once Franken’s political carcass is buried, the Democrat Party is going to drop this issue like a hot potato.
  • So the wagons are already being circled against #Metoo, especially at NBC, which has already lost Matt Lauer, Mark Halperin and several others in the scandal, and whose entire corporate work environment has been subjected to uncomfortable scrutiny.  All the other big media outlets, knowing they all have similar problems, are more than happy to serve as the de facto cavalry by looking the other way.  If Chris Matthews still has a job at the end of this week, then you’ll know the death of #Metoo is further along than even I had thought, and the only lasting outcome from it all will be some beefed-up sexual harassment training sessions in corporate workplaces around the country.  #Mesad about that, but #Mejustthemessenger.

Just another day in #Metoo is fading fast America.

That is all.

The Campaign Update Week In Review – Soooo Much Winning!

Here’s where we are in President Donald Trump’s Administration eight days before Christmas…

  • The economy is booming, with the New York branch of the Federal Reserve now estimating it will grow at the pace of 3.98% in the fourth quarter.  That would represent our third straight quarter above 3% economic growth, a feat not achieved in over a decade.
  • Unemployment is nearing a record low, asThirteen states this year have seen their unemployment rates drop to the lowest levels ever recorded since the federal government began keeping track of state-level data more than four decades ago.”
  • Regulations are vanishing at an amazing pace –  When he came into office in January, one of the first things President Trump did was issue an executive order mandating that, for every new regulation his agencies propose, they must eliminate at least two existing regulations.  The Trump Administration announced that it has in fact eliminated a staggering 22 existing regulations for each new proposal.  This rapid elimination of the Obama regulatory agenda is probably the main reason why the economy is booming today.
  • Obama holdovers are also vanishing at a rapid pace More than 700 employees have now left the EPA since President Trump took office.  Of course, as a friend pointed out Twitter, most of them will just go back to the radical leftwing anti-development groups they came from and continuing being a burden to society, but at least taxpayers won’t have to pay their ridiculous salaries anymore.
  • Meanwhile, at the Department of the Interior (DOI), Secretary Ryan Zinke announced this week that he had fired 4 senior DOI employees for charges of sexual harassmenet, and  said “I will remove 400 more if necessary.”  Cool.  Get after it, Mr. Secretary.
  • The Dow Jones Industrials closed at a record high on Friday, marking the 69th time that has happened since Donald Trump won the election over the Pantsuit Princes last November.  That is not a coincidence, either.
  • The largest tax cut in American history is on the verge of being passed – As mentioned in yesterday’s Campaign Update, the announcements by GOP Senators Marco Rubio and Bob Corker that they will support the bill would give Mitch McConnell the 51 votes he needs on Tuesday to send the bill to the President’s desk.
  • CNN, the king of the fake news universe, continues to suck wind behind Fox News and MSNBC in the cable news race.
  • The Federal Communications Commission rescinded the Obama Administration’s absurdly mis-named “Net Neutrality” rules.  These rules actually were designed to give favorable treatment to Obama-preferred Internet behemoths like Facebook, YouTube and Twitter, in that presidency’s fervent efforts to have the government picking winners and losers in every industry.  No more.
  • #MeToo meets “Hardball” – fake MSNBC host Chris Matthews found himself the latest NBC celebrity to be embroiled in the never-ending sexual abuse scandal on Saturday, when it was revealed that the network had paid out $40,000 to an accuser in 1999 and formally reprimanded him for his behavior.  Of course, like congress, the Peacock Network – which obviously has had a whole bunch of peacocks in rut running around its halls for many years – kept it all a secret until it had no choice.  With Matt Lauer, Mark Halperin and now Matthews all outed, The Campaign Update just can’t wait to find out what NBC has been keeping secret about its other hosts.
  • The Mueller-led attempted coup d’etat continues to unravel, and leftwingers are getting so desperate that they are now resorting to sending California Congresswoman Jackie Speer out to push fake “rumors” that the President is planning to fire Mueller before Christmas.   Hilariously, 70 year-old commie producer Rob Reiner and 80+ year-old washed up actor George Takkei both threatened to “take to the streets” should Trump fire the Witch-Hunter-in-Chief.  Now, that would be fun to watch.

Sadly, that won’t be happening, because Mueller won’t be going anywhere, at least not until the DOJ Inspector General issues his final report on wrongdoing within the DOJ and FBI in January.  Then, all bets will be off.

Just another week in Soooo Much Winning! America.

That is all.

Jeff Sessions Takes Corrupt, Clueless Democrats To School

Today’s Campaign Update 

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

  • Some observations from AG Jeff Sessions’ testimony before the Senate Intelligence (pardon the oxymoron) Committee on Tuesday:
    • Sessions’ tone was perfect, his righteous indignation completely appropriate under the circumstances, his defense of his honor compelling and believable.  All in all, a great decision by him to insist on public testimony when the committee Democrats wanted to question him out of the public eye.  Given their own performances, which ranged from disingenuous (Mark Warner), to imperiously strident (Kamala Harris), to buffoonish (Ron Wyden), it’s easy to see why they wanted to do this one in private.  Too bad.
    • If California Sen. Kamala Harris is, as many claim, the Democrat Party’s “rising star”, then the Democrats have no future.  She was out of her league, and transparently dishonest.  But hey, Democrats love voting for transparently dishonest candidates, which explains why she’s a Senator now.
    • A social media scandal broke out when Sen. Harris was shut down by the Chair because her time had run out as she was repeatedly interrupting AG Sessions in order to prevent him to give a full answer to a stupid question. Fake journalists and leftist trolls tisk-tisked all over Twitter about how Republicans just love to shut down women.  Trouble with that was that it was actually ranking Democrat Mark Warner who shut Ms. Harris down, as Chairman Richard Burr had temporarily left the room.  D’oh!
    • The fake reporters at the Huffington Post actually picked up on this little nuance, and ran a story on the incident bashing not “Republicans”, but “Men” instead. Well, you know, they had to bash somebody.  It’s what they do at the HuffPo.
    • Senator from the News Media John McCain was once again utterly incoherent in his questioning, causing AG Sessions to have to ask him to repeat questions several times because they were simply not understandably put.  Maybe he should start avoiding these things, and stick with softball interviews with Chris Matthews instead.  Either that, or get some new meds.
    • Tom Cotton of Arkansas was the star of the show, humiliating the Democrats by comparing their Russia collusion fantasy to the plot of a bad spy movie.  Well, ok, the Democrats weren’t really “humiliated”, since they are so uniformly lacking in any sense of self-awareness anymore that they are long beyond any ability to feel such embarrassment.
    • In an off-hand remark, AG Sessions let it be known that his office has already begun “multiple” investigations into illegal leaking of classified information.  That information no doubt had knees shaking among myriad Obama holdovers at the FBI and various intelligence agencies, not to mention the NSC and the White House.  It also left James Comey trying to decide which third party cutout to use to leak some more self-serving stuff to the New York Times.
    • BTW, it’s a bit off-subject, but has anyone else noticed that we still have not actually seen any of Comey’s mystery “contemporaneous memos”?  Just wondering.
    • At the end of the hearing, it is very telling that the Democrats are now so utterly lacking in any support for their “collusion” or “obstruction” fantasies that all they had left to complain about after the hearing was the fact that the U.S. Attorney General would not divulge details about conversations he has had with a sitting President of the United States, a longstanding Justice Department policy that was invoked dozens of times by both Loretta Lynch and Eric Holder without a peep of protest from a single Senate Democrat.
    • The Collusion fantasy is dead – even MSNBC’s fake host Chris Matthews understands that.  The Obstruction fantasy is on life support.  Expect to see the fake news media/Democrat Party axis of nitwittery coordinating on an entirely new fantasy scandal over the next week or two.  Because it’s all they have.
  • Tired of winning yet?:  Fake news personality Megyn Kelly is bombing in her new gig over at NBC.  Her first two episodes have lost miserably against re-runs of CBS’s “60 Minutes”, with her second week’s audience falling by 36% from her first one.  And now she’s in trouble for deciding to feature an interview with conspiracy theory-promoting talk radio host Alex Jones on her third episode.  My goodness, what’s going to happen in the Fall, when “60 Minutes” starts airing new stuff?  Couldn’t happen to a nicer person.  BTW, if Megyn Kelly was a man, her snarky fake journalist colleagues would be calling her an “empty suit,”, a term they normally reserve for Scott Pelley.  But it takes too long to call her an “empty sleeveless, low-cut, short-skirted ensemble by Gucci” instead.

Just another day in collapsing media/Democrat/Megyn Kelly fantasy America.

That is all.

Today’s Campaign Update (Because The Campaign Never Ends) – 4.5.2017

  • Speaking truth to nitwits.:  Italian designer Stefano Gabbana publicly thanked First Lady Melania Trump for wearing an outfit he designed in her new official portrait.  He also told social media trolls who pounded on him for working with Mrs. Trump to “go to hell.”  Cool.
  • Sorry folks, that cat don’t flush.:  20 Democratic members of the House signed a letter to Speaker Paul Ryan demanding that Rep. Devin Nunes be removed as the Chairman of the House Intelligence Committee.  Their letter contained the unintentionally hilarious line “this is about country, not party.”  For the record, it has been at least a quarter of a century since any Democrat member of either house of congress did anything for “country, not party.”
  • The last refuge of the flummoxed liberal.:  Out of any other means to defend the pathological liar Susan Rice in her growing “unmasking” scandal, MSNBC fake host Chris Matthews very predictably declared the entire episode to be both “racist” and “sexist.”  That will of course appeal greatly to all the social justice warriors out there, but hey, they were already going to ignore the elephant in the room in any event.  That’s what they do.  It will take a better set of talking points and distractions to convince anyone else the elephant is in fact not there.
  • By the way, if you are surprised that the major networks, CNN and MSNBC have not just ignored the growing avalanche of evidence that the Obama Administration was indeed illegally spying on and unmasking members of the Trump campaign and transition team for political purposes, but aggressively assaulted the story, remember this:  Those media outlets are all complicit in the crime.  They all shared the illegally leaked information.  They all actively covered up every major scandal of the Obama years.  They all actively refused to even vet Barack Hussein Obama when he was  a candidate in 2008.  They all parrotted the Obama Administration talking points every day for eight long years.  They all willingly gave up being anything resembling real “news” organizations in order to become a part of the Obama machine.  They cannot now recognize and report on the utter corruption that pervaded every corner of their hero’s regime, because to do so destroys their own credibility.  So they will stick with this sinking ship to the bitter end.  They have no choice.
  • Tired of winning yet?:  Department of Homeland Security officials revealed yesterday that illegal immigration across the nation’s southern border is down 67% for the first quarter of 2017 compared to 2016.  That’s without building a wall, without passing new laws, without a dollar of more budget money for the Border Patrol. That’s what happens when you elect a President who simply decides to enforce U.S. immigration laws.  This is not rocket science.
  • We’re all so devastated.:  Coordinating with the Clinton family, which has been embarked on a months-long effort to drum up a pretense to run their no-account daughter Chelsea for political office in 2018, fake journalist Gayle King took things a step farther than others before her.  She actually asked the dim-witted spawn of Hillary if she had any interest in running for the presidency in 2020.  And did it with a straight face!  To the huge disappointment of demented Clinton sycophants across the country, their new achievement-devoid hero demurred, saying “I clearly don’t agree with our president, but I’m definitely not the right person to run to defeat him in 2020. So right now, the answer is no.”  Oh, heck.  Oh, darn.

Just another day in Trump Derangement Syndrome, fake media America

That is all.
