That Time Poor Little Jimmy Was Bullied By Mean Ol’ Sarah

  • Alabama GOP Senate Candidate Roy Moore got his head handed to him Tuesday, losing the vote to Democrat Doug Jones by more than 21,000 votes in the final count.  Despite that margin, Moore, as of this writing early Wednesday morning, is still refusing to concede victory, telling his supporters they need to let God sort this all out.  Um, Judge, to the extent God cared about what happened in your election, he’s probably already done all the sorting he’s planning to do.  Show just a little grace here, like your Bible teaches you to do.
  • The editorial board for USA Today has obviously decided it wants its fading platform to join the grand pantheon of fake news organizations.  After President Donald Trump (I never tire of typing those three words) responded to Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand’s call for his resignation with a tweet that says that the Democrat Senator “would come to my office “begging” for campaign contributions not so long ago (and would do anything for them),” the USA ed board responded with an insane op/ed that accused the President of calling the Senator “a whore.”  No, guys, he called her a politician.  Try to keep up here.
  • The President has quite often made that exact same reference to Democrat politicians – mainly New Yorkers like Chuck Schumer – who, when Trump was a private citizen, used to come to his office and beg for money in return for whatever favors Trump wanted them to do for him.  There is really no mystery at all what the President was saying in that tweet, and, as stellar White House Spokesman Sarah Huckabee Sanders told fake reporter April Ryan at Tuesday’s press briefing, only those with their mind in the gutter would take the tweet to be a sexual reference.  Of course, as we have discovered in the past two months with all the revelations about liberals in politics, entertainment and the fake news media being engaged in rampant sexual abuse at the workplace, having their minds in the gutter is apparently where Democrat politicians and fake reporters live 24 hours a day.
  • Never to be outdone, Senator Fauxcahontas Warren weighed in by issuing a statement accusing the President of “slut-shaming” Senator Gillibrand with his tweet.  This led to the fake Indian from Massachusetts being utterly ridiculed in the social media space by Millennials who understand that being “slut-shamed” means the person who is the target has been engaging in slutty behavior, an accusation to which Sen. Gillibrand just might take offense.  Obviously, Senator Heap Big Running Mouth needs to brush up on her urban slang dictionary before wading into controversies such as this in the future.
  • Speaking of Sarah Huckabee Sanders and fake reporters, the fakest White House Reporter of them all, CNN’s Little Jimmy Acosta, hilariously accused Ms. Sanders of being a mean ol’ bully to him on Tuesday.  When the President came out to make a statement to a limited number of White House reporters at what is called a “pool spray” (wonder if April Ryan thinks that’s some sort of sexual reference, too), Little Jimmy claims Sanders came to him beforehand and warned him that his access to future such “sprays” would be limited if, as is his grandstanding habit, he shouted out a question to the President.  Little Jimmy, who has been desperately trying to get a hosting gig on CNN by making a constant ass of himself at the White House, predictably shouted out his question, then bravely tweeted out “Sorry, Sarah – we will not be intimidated.”
  • Now, none of this would be remotely noteworthy were it not for the reality that reporters are very often told that “sprays” such as this are not open to questions, and that, for the past 8 years, whenever the assembled White House press corps was given that instruction by the Obama spokesman, they wagged their tails and panted like the good little lapdogs they were, and then went out and regurgitated whatever Obama had had to say without further comment.  Little Jimmy was maybe the most obedient lapdog among them, though he had plenty of competition.
  • Let’s also remember that, whenever His Royal Oneness Obama did lower himself to take a few questions from Little Jimmy and his gang, the questions asked by these intrepid fake journalists were things like “How ya doin’ today?”, or “What is the very, very best thing about the job you do?”, or “Why are you just so darn wonderful?”
  • After eight years of that on-the-job failure, for Little Jimmy now to lose all sense of proper decorum at the White House or of his place in the world because the people elected a President he personally hates, and whine about being “bullied” is almost too pathetic for words.  But there, I found them.

Just another day in poor Little Jimmy’s being bullied by mean ol’ Sarah America.

That is all.

President Trump Should Let Chuck And Nancy Have Their Government Shut-Down

  • First Lady Melania Trump stopped in at a local Whataburger while on a visit to Corpus Christi on Wednesday.  While the nitwits who infest Vanity Fair and the NYTimes are surely only interested in which shoes she wore to order her Whataburger with cheese and fries, I am officially in awe of our First Lady after that gesture to the people of Texas.  If you’ve never had a Whataburger and aren’t familiar with the company’s history and the place it occupies in Texas culture, you won’t understand why.  But trust me, every native Texan does.
  • It’s Senator Smalley Day in the U.S. Senate! – That’s right:  Today is the day when the terminally smarmy jackass Senator from Minnesota – who, let’s all never forget, acquired his seat solely due to massive voter fraud – announces that he has decided he is gropey enough, he’s perverted enough, and dog-gonnit, women hate him.  Because of all of that, he will resign his illegitimately-obtained seat and let Minnesota’s Democrat Governor appoint his replacement, who will get to serve through 2020.  Couldn’t happen to a nicer guy.
  • After congress passed an actual law in 1995 mandating the U.S. move its embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to the Israeli capital of Jerusalem, President Bill Clinton signed the law and promised to get it done, but then caved in to pressure from the terrorists who run Palestine because they said it would negatively impact the Middle East “peace process.”  George W. Bush, when running for president in 2000, also promised to make this move, but then, once in office, caved in to pressure from the terrorists who run Palestine because they said it would negatively impact the Middle East “peace process.”   Barack Hussein Obama, when running for president in 2000, also promised to make this move, but then, once in office, caved in to pressure from the terrorists who run Palestine because they said it would negatively impact the Middle East “peace process.”  Are we beginning to detect a pattern here?
  • Donald J. Trump, when running for president in 2016, promised to make this move, and then, once in office, began to receive massive pressure from the terrorists who run Palestine not to do it, because they said it would negatively impact the Middle East “peace process.”  Faced with the previous 22 years of the very definition of insanity, President Trump yesterday realized that there is no “peace process” if our country keeps just giving in to the terrorists who run Palestine, and announced that he’s going to actually obey the law congress passed in 1995, and move the U.S. embassy to Jerusalem, where it has always belonged.  So nice to have a POTUS who doesn’t pander to terrorists, and who is actually focused on keeping the promises he made during his campaign.
  • This action by President Trump is, in a microcosm, the main reason why he is POTUS today.  He was elected to do the things his weak-kneed predecessors refused to do, to use the office of the presidency to protect the interests of American citizens and America’s allies, priorities that no president has really focused on since Ronald Reagan.
  • All of which brings me to this week’s negotiations over extending the continuing resolution that keeps the government funded.  With Chuck Schumer and San Fran Nan threatening to shut down the government because they want amnesty for all the “Dreamers”, weak-kneed Republicans in congress are running scared because they know the fake news media will put the blame for the shut-down on them.
  • My question to them is, so what?  Have you learned nothing from history?  The last time the Republicans got blamed by the fake news media for shutting down the federal government was 2013, when Ted Cruz single-handedly dragged the party kicking and screaming to negotiate something meaningful into the budget bill under consideration at the time.  14 months later, the GOP went on to win a massive tidal wave victory in the next mid-term congressional elections in 2014.  Why?  Because by shutting down the government, even for just a few days, Republicans in congress energized their base by demonstrating they actually do have the ability to stand for something.
  • But this week, every congressional Republican is begging President Trump to save them from getting blamed for shutting down the government again.  What is wrong with this picture?  Do these people never learn that they are going to get negative media treatment no matter what they do, for the simple fact that they are Republicans?  How many times must that lesson be pounded into their brains before they quit hitting their head up against the same brick wall?
  • Now is the time to do something meaningful, folks.  Just kicking the can down the road for the thousandth time only helps the Democrats.  Not only should the GOP refuse to include anything about the “Dreamers” in this CR, they should refuse to pass anything that doesn’t include funding for the border wall.  This constant surrendering in the face of the first sign of adversity is the main reason why congressional Republicans are detested by a growing number of naturally Republican voters.
  • This is a potential teaching moment for President Trump.  There is no doubt his instinct will be to let Chuck and Nancy shut the government down if they want to, and then get on this Twitter feed and pound them for as long as it lasts.  That’s exactly what he should do, for the benefit of the Republican Party and the country.
  • The Republicans in congress have been repeating this exact failed strategy in budget negotiations for far too long.  It’s up to President Trump to stop the insanity.  Shut.  It.  Down.

Just another day in stop the madness America.

That is all.

Sayfullo Saipov: A Soldier In The Democrat War On Normal America

Today’s Campaign Update 

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

  • First, a heartfelt congratulations to the World Champion Houston Astros and their long-suffering fans for prevailing in the greatest World Series ever played, and to shortstop Carlos Correa for what has got to be the greatest marriage proposal ever made.  For Texans, it just doesn’t get any better than that.  The team and the City of Houston, which has spent the last two months suffering through the after-effects of Hurricane Harvey, will hold a parade through downtown tomorrow, a scene that will no doubt be insane.
  • Speaking of insanity, there’s plenty of it going around the rest of the country as well.  Let’s start with the latest terrorist attack on New York City, where we have very predictably found out that the budding terrorist was actually interviewed by the incompetent, corrupt boobs in the Obama FBI actually interviewed this guy in 2015 to interrogate him about possible ties to terror plots in the United States.  Equally predictably, the incompetent, corrupt Obama FBI boobs saw no reason to open a case against the guy or place him under surveillance.
  • So, this case is just like the Orlando massacre, the San Bernardino killings and the Boston Marathon bombings.  In all these Islamic terrorist attacks, we inevitably come to find out that the corrupt and incompetent Federal Bureau of Investigation knew about the terrorists in advance, had interviewed them, even arrested some of them, and had most if not all of them under surveillance prior to their mass murders and did nothing to stop them.  What’s the old saying?  Once is an accident, twice is coincidence, three times is a trend.  But this, this is insanity.
  • But it gets worse.  While the President and his advisers were considering naming the terrorist an enemy combatant and shipping him down to Gitmo for proper interrogation, Fox News is reporting this morning that the nitwits at the Justice Department decided to just give him his Miranda warning and assign him a public defender.  So now the guy’s in the system, and there will be no opportunity to aggressively interrogate him to determine if he has knowledge of other terror plots.  The utterly incompetent and worthless Jeff Sessions strikes again.  Insanity.
  • Of course, the worst insanity in this incident comes from the Democrat Party, which has been entirely co-opted by radical Islamism at this point, and which insists we continue to bring people like Sayfullo Saipov into our midst to keep maiming and murdering Americans.  The Democrats insist we maintain open borders immigration programs – like Chuck Schumer’s Diversity Visa program that let Saipov and 23 of his friends and relatives into our country via chain immigration – for the simple reason that they view Islamists to be reliable Democrat voters.  Trust me when I say that, if Islamists voted Republican, Chuck Schumer would not have come up with the whole Diversity Visa idea.
  • Few people want to say it, but the truth about the Democrat Party is that it views the 8 people killed by Saipov merely as collateral damage, an acceptable price for our society to pay in order to keep building a major new voting bloc to which Democrat candidates for office can pander.  ‘Hey, you want Sharia Law in your neighborhood?  No problem, vote for me.’
  • In case you still haven’t noticed, the Democrat Party is at war with “normal” America, and it values your life only so long as you support its world view.  It’s a disgrace and it’s insane, but these are Democrats we’re talking about here.  Progressives.  The Resistance.  Antifa supporters.  George Soros defenders.
  • All one need do to see this insanity is to observe the way in which New York’s Democrat “leaders” responded to this attack: With the same tired, meaningless and mindless platitudes we have heard a thousand times from a thousand non-leaders before in the wake of Islamic terror attacks that kill and maim our population, and with attacks on President Trump for correctly pointing to the source of the problem, which is our nation’s insane open borders immigration system.
  • In the end, meaningless and mindless platitudes, and attacks on their opponents are all the Democrat Party has.  It is an empty Party filled with empty people who are completely out of ideas, and their response to their own emptiness is to lash out at everyone else.  The worst and most dangerous insanity of all is that about 40% of America’s population keeps voting to put these people into office.  Stop it.

Just another day in Democrat insanity America.

That is all.

Hey, Remember When The Lefties Told Us That Silence Is Consent? Yeah…good times.

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

  • Lessee here…more than 48 hours after the NY Times revelatory piece about Harvey Weinstein’s quarter century of abusing women, and not one word from one of his biggest political beneficiaries, Hillary Rodham Clinton.  I’m old enough to remember when The Most Corrupt Woman In America went around telling us that women who are abused by men have the right to be believed.  That obviously did not apply to women abused by her own husband, and it apparently doesn’t apply when the man in question is a big campaign donor and huge contributor to the Democratic Party.  Who could have ever guessed that would be the case?
  • Not one word from Michelle or Barack Obama, either, even though the internet is filled with photos of both of them paling around with Weinstein over the years.  Weinstein held multiple fundraisers for the former President, gave him many thousands of dollars.  In fact, the Obamas thought so highly of this predator that they even allowed their oldest daughter to work for him one recent summer.  Let that sink in.
  • Speaking of the DNC, the scumbags who run that disgrace of an organization announced yesterday that they would be giving much of the more than $300,000 they have received from Weinstein while he was abusing women to …wait for it…Emily’s List!  Yes, Emily’s List, which is nothing more than a Democrat slush fund support organization.  Out in the real world, we call this money laundering.  Next, it’s probably a safe bet we will see the DNC announce it is giving a big chunk of money to Planned Parenthood, so PP can just give it right back in the form of political contributions.  The sleaze just oozes out of these people’s pores.
  • Several of the Democrat-only senators to whom Weinstein has so generously targeted his hush money over the years joined Patrick Leahy in announcing they would be contributing their ill-gotten gains to “women’s” organizations, too.  Presumably, this money will go to “women’s” organizations like Emily’s List and PP, so the senators can all be sure they will get the money right back.  These execrable excuses for human beings include Chuck Schumer, Kamala Harris, valor thief Richard Blumenthal, Cory Booker and Martin Heinrich.
  • If you’re wondering why I’m listing the names of these senators for you, it is because what Weinstein was doing to women was open knowledge in Hollywood and among the Democrat political set.  I think it is very important for us all to know that all of these sleazy politicians who claim to be supporters of women’s rights took money from Weinstein and allowed him to hold fundraisers for them very likely in the full knowledge that he was a predator.
  • But hey, as sleazy as these Democrat politicians are, at least some of them are acknowledging the NY Times’ story and taking some action.  The same cannot be said of the cowards who infest the Hollywood film industry, all of whom appear to cower in fear of the Weinstein empire.  Or, probably more accurately, all of whom still hope to get jobs or other wise benefit from the Weinstein empire.
  • This should not surprise anyone.  Hollywood has always been a cesspit of human depravity, and given all the stories of rampant pedophilia infesting that culture in recent years, the Hollywood set no doubt views mere sexual harrassment with a sense of relief.
  • Even the late night talk show hosts who want their viewers to think they are so brave in pounding on President Trump and those evil Republicans in congress have  been mute about Weinstein.  No tears from Jimmy Kimmel for the plight of the many women whom Weinstein abused.  No Hitler references or salutes for Weinstein from Stephen Colbert.  No staff-written letters of sympathy displays from Jimmy Fallon.  Nothing but silence, and thus consent, from any of these creeps.
  • Because silence is consent in situations like this, or at least that’s what our country’s liberals and progressives have spent the last 40 years telling us.  Weinstein’s behavior towards women was an open secret – everyone knew about it, and everyone who hoped to benefit professionally or politically from his massive wealth and power stayed silent about it.  But like everything else progressives and liberals demand from the rest of us in terms of human behavior, they feel no need to apply this behavior to themselves.
  • Weinstein was “suspended” by his own company on Friday so that officials there – all of whose livelihoods depend on Weinstein’s survival – can conduct an internal “investigation”.  Everyone should understand that the “investigation” will be conducted by people who have all along known what Weinstein was doing to women.  Because everyone in Hollywood knew, and no one said anything.

Just another day in silence is consent America.

That is all.

The Real Leftist Agenda on Gun Control is Simple: Confiscation

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

  • These events never work out the way the fake news media want them to. – President Trump, as promised, visited the ravaged island of Puerto Rico on Tuesday, and everyone at CNN and NBC was horrified to see him enthusiastically received by grateful Puerto Ricans.  San Juan’s Marxist Mayor Cruz wore spiked heels to the joint briefing with the President, and no one at Vanity Fair or the New York times tossed a fit about it.  Go figure.
  • In other news, I had an email from a lefty friend late yesterday, an email that ended with an expression of this person’s feeling that “we really need to have a national dialogue about guns.”  That sounded suspiciously like the leftist talking point started by Tom Brokaw Monday morning and parroted by pretty much every Democrat politician and fake journalist who can still utter coherent sentences – which obviously excludes Nancy Pelosi – but I didn’t say that to this person.
  • Instead, my reply was very brief:  “Ok, I’ll start.  You can’t have my guns.  Great talk.”  Thus, my lefty friend may now be just a lefty acquaintance, I’m not sure, since I never got a reply.  I suppose I’ll find out in due time.
  • But whatever, this is really the only reply conservatives can offer to lefties on this subject, for one simple reason:  the leftist heart is not pure on this subject.  Well, ok, the leftist heart is not pure on any subject, but on gun control it is especially not pure.
  • This lack of purity of intentions becomes manifestly obvious every time we have a tragic event like the Las Vegas massacre, and every leftwinger in the country knee jerks to offering logic-devoid sophistries about the “need for more gun control” before we even know the name of the maniac who perpetrated the act, much less anything about his background or how he acquired his weapons.
  • The Las Vegas shooter is a great example of leftists’ lockstep refusal to deal with facts.  Due to his work history, which included stints at the U.S. Postal Service, the IRS and a defense contractor, and in the process of legally acquiring his massive stash of firearms, we now know this scumbag somehow managed to pass more than 30 FBI background checks during his life.  He obtained his guns in states with some of the most restrictive gun laws in the country, dotted every ‘I’, crossed every ‘T’, and was able to accumulate an arsenal.  Yet I heard half a dozen leftwing idiot politicians, such as the execrable valor thief Richard Blumenthal, talk about the need for more background checks when obtaining firearms.  Which part of “30 FBI background checks” do you not understand, Senator?
  • But of course, Blumenthal gets a pass from the fake news media, which is uniformly parroting the same false narrative, because enhanced background checks are not the real agenda here.  If you give Blumenthal his enhanced background checks, and give Chuck Schumer his desire to outlaw “bump stocks”, then the next time there is a mass shooting perpetrated by some guy who passed all the background checks to legally acquire his firearms, Dick and Chuck are just going to come back wanting something else that won’t have any effect other than robbing law-abiding citizens of more of their freedoms.
  • Note to all conservatives thinking about offering concessions to these people:  The real agenda is LEFTISTS WANT TO TAKE YOUR GUNS AWAY FROM YOU.  That’s it.  That’s where they all want to go, that’s what is in their hearts and minds, and everything they do and say related to this issue is designed to get them to that point.
  • If you gave Hillary Clinton or Bernie Sanders 30 seconds to be dictator of America, the one thing he or she would get done in that 30 seconds would be to rescind the 2nd Amendment and send an army of jack-booted, bullet-proof vest-wearing, ironically gun-toting thugs into your home to forcibly take away all of your guns and leave you defenseless.  Because leftists believe that only the jack-booted, bullet-proof vest wearing, ironically gun-toting thugs loyal to them should be able to tote guns in our society.
  • And don’t think this is really about preventing atrocities like what took place in Las Vegas Sunday.  Hell, if it was about that, they’d be trying to ban big white trucks, since a radical Islamic terrorist killed 86 people in Nice last year with a big white truck.
  • This is about control.  Not gun control, just control.  Leftists want to control you.  They think they are smarter than you, better than you, know better than you do how you should live your life, and think they should be able to dictate all of that to you.  They honestly do.  This is how their minds work.  It’s how they are wired.
  • This is the real nature of leftism: It’s a mental disorder.  Throughout the history of the 20th and 21st centuries, the implementation of leftism in any society has inevitably led to a violent end.  Venezuela is just the latest in a very long line of nations to sadly experience this inevitable progression.  The first two steps in such a progression are always 1) the government takeover of the news media, which was already 90% achieved during the Obama Administration, and 2) the disarming of the public.
  • Guess where we are in that progression?
  • Offering concessions to these people is no different than offering concessions to Lenin, or Hitler, or Mao, or Castro or Hugo Chavez:  The next time there’s an incident, they’re always going to want more concessions, and every concession is just one more step down the road to their ultimate, true goal.
  • So stop it.  Just stop.

That is all.

Jimmy Kimmel: The Left’s Perfect Spokesman

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

  • Jimmy Kimmel is the perfect spokesman for the American Left.  He personifies everything the Left has become over the last 25 years, since the advent of Clintonian/Alinsky dominance of the Democrat Party:  Entitled, snarky, mean, haughty, and above all else, studiously ignorant.
  • The tactics he deploys from his late night pulpit are the tactics Clintonian Democrats have deployed from their political pulpits for a quarter of a century.  You begin with a set of talking points prepared by someone else, but which you memorize and recite as if they were gospel handed down from God himself.  In Kimmel’s case, the talking points were handed down by Chuck Schumer, more a minion of Satan than a god, but hey, the principle is the same.
  • Kimmel’s talking points are pretty simple:  Obama, good.  Obamacare, good.  Republicans, bad.  Anything Republicans want to to with Obamacare, bad.  That’s the sum total of what Kimmel “knows” about the debate over what to do about the collapsing Obamacare system, which has quintupled medical premiums in many areas and thrown millions of Americans off of healthcare insurance entirely.  Kimmel sees none of this, because none of this is in the talking points he’s been fed by Schumer.  Kimmel is abjectly ignorant, and he clings to his ignorance like Linus clings to his security blanket.
  • Every set of leftist talking points comes with the  standard set of leftist tactics, and those tactics always – ALWAYS – follow the same exact progression:  First you start with a sob story, and to his credit, Kimmel and his beautiful little son have a great, very real sob story to relate.  Second comes the name calling, and boy is Kimmel, a veteran comic, good at the name calling.  Next comes the threats, and Kimmel is as good with the threats as he is at the name calling.  Finally, when the left still hasn’t gotten everything it wants, comes the violence, as we have seen the past few years with Antifa and Black Lives Matter, the armed and violent wing of the Democrat Party.  Kimmel hasn’t gotten around to the violence part yet, but we can be sure he will next time he runs into Brian Kilmeade.
  • As mentioned above, the sob story is real:  Kimmel does have a precious little boy who has a heart condition which has already required one surgery and will, according to Kimmel, require two more.  This is awful, and everyone should be praying for the child’s full recovery.  Luckily for the child, he is the son of a fabulously wealthy member of the top 1% of the 1%, so he will receive the finest healthcare available in America, which is also the finest available in the world.  Kimmel wants his viewers to believe that the only reason his son will receive such fine healthcare is thanks to the demi-god Obama and Obamacare, which of course is an outright lie.  But lying is what leftwingers like Kimmel do.
  • Anyone who argues with Kimmel on this subject and points out his lies immediately becomes the target of nationally-televised name-calling.  If you disagree with Kimmel, suddenly you are evil, a sexist, a racist, and any other -ist he can attach to what his script-writers consider these days to be a “joke”.   One Louisiana Congressman even became an “inbred” in Kimmel’s Thursday rampage, er, ‘monologue’.  It’s all very predictable, yet very sad coming as it does from a comic who at one time was actually a very funny guy who understood what his show was supposed to be about.
  • Then come the threats.  For leftist politicians, the threats come in the form of taxes, penalties or imprisonment on whatever behaviors they don’t approve of but can’t solve through name-calling.  For Jimmy Kimmel, the threats come in the old-fashioned form of threatening to beat someone up when they call out his rank hypocrisy and lying on their own television program.  Thus, his threat to physically assault Fox & Friends host Brian Kilmeade next time he runs into him.
  • The final step for any good leftist is, of course, outright violence whenever they can’t get their way through the peaceful, constitutional process.  Kimmel hasn’t gotten there yet – perhaps only because he hasn’t run into Kilmeade – but can anyone doubt that, should the Republicans cobble together 50 votes in the senate to pass the Graham/Cassidy bill, he will use his late night pulpit to urge his viewers to take that route?  Given his down-the-line mindlessly leftist behavior to this point, it seems almost inevitable.
  • Unlike the detestable Stephen Colbert, who actually understands a lot about politics and just chooses consciously to act the idiot in order to attract an audience, Kimmel is not someone to be condemned, but pitied.  Through a highly emotional life experience, he has allowed himself to fall out of the only role he really knows anything about, and be co-opted by evil leftwingers like Chuck Schumer to act as their stooge.  It’s like the modern-day Wizard of Oz – no need to worry about the image you see projected on your screen, it’s the man behind the curtain who is the real villain.

Just another day in evil leftists America.

That is all.

The Democrat Party’s Real Problems For 2018 Are Its Own Ugly, Sordid Faces

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

  • If you want proof that Republicans and Democrats live in two completely different sets of reality, all you need to do is go read the piece linked here summarizing a new Gallup survey regarding Americans’ trust in the fake news media.  According to Gallup – whose results admittedly must always be called into question since it refuses to publicly release the sampling methods behind its polling – fully 72% of Democrats have “a great deal/fair amount of trust and confidence” in the accuracy of the country’s fake news media, while just 14% of Republicans and 37% of Independents admit to holding the same view.
  • Let that set in for a moment.  As an example, when President Trump visited Houston in the wake of Hurricane Harvey, he was filmed by all media present interacting with literally hundreds of ordinary people, hugging them, talking to them, coloring pages with their children, helping them load their trucks with supplies, working behind the lunch counter at the shelter, etc.  It was an extraordinary example of presidential leadership and empathy with the common man.  Yet that evening, when CNN and MSNBC both falsely reported that the President had met no one, interacted with no one, and ignored the suffering of those people, Gallup tells us that 72% of the nation’s Democrats believed those reports, despite the video evidence before their own lyin’ eyes.
  • That’s not just a disconnect, that is conscious, intentional exercise in mass self-delusion.  Given that self-described “Democrats” make up about 35% of adults, Gallup’s results indicate that roughly one out of every four adults you come across lives in a complete and total fake media-created fantasy world.  Truly frightening.
  • This brings me to a long piece published in Time on Wednesday, which attempts to analyze how the Democrat Party’s ‘leaders’, such as they are, are trying desperately to get the Party’s act together in preparation for the 2018 mid-term elections and the 2020 presidential contest.  It’s a decent, if superficial, analysis, focused mainly on the Party’s math problem in terms of how few levers of power it actually controls, its pathetic fundraising efforts, and the conflicts among the Party’s current ‘leaders’ – again, such as they are – over whether to continue trying to attract the independent voters who will make or break their efforts to win races, or just chuck it all and take the Bernie Sanders/Elizabeth Warren turn to the hard left.
  • In other words, the piece is all the standard ‘insider’ stuff written by a standard DC ‘insider’ fake reporter.  It’s all the sort of stuff that actually mattered in the days before the 2016 campaign and President Donald Trump, but now really just doesn’t get to the heart of the matter and which betrays a complete lack of real understanding of what is going on in the 95% of the country that lies outside of the nation’s major media centers.
  • Here’s the reality for the Democrat Party:  The Party has to completely change the faces that represent it in order to have any chance at all to regain real levers of power through the electoral process.  And that is a process of change that will take years, not weeks or months, to achieve.
  • The faces of the Democrat Party today are a) Corruption (Hillary Clinton), b) Commies (Bernie Sanders), c) fraud (Elizabeth “Fauxcahontas” Warren), d) open borders radicalism (DNC leaders), e) dishonesty and incompetence (Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer) and f) thuggery (Antifa, Black Lives Matter, and other Soros-supported civil unrest groups).  If they’re smart (always an open question, I admit), Republican candidates in 2018 and 2020 won’t be spending their time and money running against their nominal Democrat opponents, they will be spending most of their time and money running against all these ugly, grossly unpopular faces of the Democrat Party as a whole.
  • Democrat candidates for office can talk all they want to about all the “free stuff” they plan to hand out to anyone who votes for them, but when the face of your Party is San Fran Nan, or black-masked thugs who spend their time violently assaulting political opponents and tossing bags filled with urine at policemen, those promises of “free stuff” are going to largely fall on deaf ears.  Time talks about Democrat efforts to turn 24 currently-GOP congressional seats to their advantage in order to regain a majority in the House of Representatives.  Time doesn’t really talk about how inevitably leftwing Democrat candidates are going to convince moderate and conservative voters in these “flyover country” districts to vote for them when the GOP incumbents are running ad after ad featuring the Commie, the Most Corrupt Woman in America, or video of town squares being burned by the armed “Resistance” wing of the Democrat Party.
  • As we’ve seen in this year’s special elections, the GOP was able to retain all five congressional seats in play, even when its candidates were weak or damaged, mainly by simply running ads featuring the stumbling, bumbling, doddering Nancy Pelosi.  They haven’t even gotten around to running ads airing all the glowing, supportive statements about Antifa and Black Lives Matter coming from the mouths of Pelosi, Schumer, Obama, Clinton, Sanders and Warren, complete with video of Berkeley or St. Louis burning in the background.
  • This is the Democrats’ real problem for 2018 and 2020, and the foreseeable future beyond.  We can count on all the “experts” in DC and New York to completely miss it, but it’s real, and there is no apparent solution to it.  Regardless of how poorly the Republicans perform in their congressional efforts, their saving grace is likely to be the fact that they get to run for re-election against the ugly, sordid faces of the Democrat Party.

Just another day in Donald Trump’s America.

Welcome To The DC Swamp’s Never-Ending Clown Show!

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

  • What time do Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi arrive? – A group of professional clowns will be holding a rally tonight outside a New York City movie theater where the film “It” is currently showing.  The clowns claim the movie is killing their clown business, with a spokesman for the group claiming he and his partner have had six cancellations in the last couple of weeks because of the film.  No word on who will be manning the anchor desks at CNN, ABC, CBS and NBC while the clown rally is happening.
  • Deal?  Or no Deal? – Speaking of Pelosi and Schumer, they had dinner with President Trump last night, and the discussion obviously centered around what to do about all those poor DACA children (average age, 26) and border security.  Obviously, discussion over a compromise took place, but given the conflicting statements issued by the Democrats and the White House following the dinner, the essential elements of said discussion are very much in dispute.
  • The Democrats issued a statement indicating that a final deal had been cut that would provide additional funding for border security measures – excluding the building of a border wall – in exchange for enshrinement of the DACA provisions contained in Barack Obama’s illegal executive order into law.  The Democrats promised to get to work on legislative language – which they no doubt already have drafted, let’s be honest – posthaste.  Done deal, right?
  • Not so fast, my friend! – Well, not according to White House spokesman Marc Short, who said the Democrats’ statement was – knock me over with a feather! – “misleading.”  “While DACA and border security were both discussed, excluding the wall was certainly not agreed to”, Short said,  “no deal on DACA or border wall $$ was reached tonight.”  So once again, the Democrats got caught spiking the ball before they made it to the endzone, kind of like any random running back for the Cleveland Browns.
  • It’s Twitter time! – For his part, the President naturally waited until 5:00 a.m. to chime in on Twitter about the matter, stating in part, “No deal was made last night on DACA. Massive border security would have to be agreed to in exchange for consent. Would be subject to vote.”  Ok, so, what was that all about, anyway?
  • Well, what it was all about is that this is the obvious general deal to be struck on these two interrelated matters.  The President cannot get the increased border security funding he wants without votes from Democrats, 98% of whom don’t give a damn about border security.  Democrats do give a damn about filling our country with as many third world immigrants as they can, because they view them as future Democrat voters, but they can’t enshrine this 800,000 strong bloc of future DACA voters without votes from Republicans and support from the White House.  They know that DACA provisions do not give the “Dreamers” citizenship or voting rights, but they do allow them to become permanent U.S. residents who can find ways to vote illegally, as happens in Democrat-controlled areas all over the country.  It’s pathetic, it’s un-American, but this is how Democrat minds work.
  • GOP congressional leadership, meanwhile, doesn’t really give a damn about increased border funding either, though they have to pretend to be in order to stave off 2018 primary challengers.  But they do want DACA extended, because the Chamber of Commerce wants as many cheap workers as they can get into this country, so they’re perfectly happy to let the President work out a deal with the Democrats.  They’ll whine loudly about whatever deal is made, just as they did with the President/Pelosi/Schumer deal on budget/debt ceiling/hurricane funding, but then they’ll go out and pass it in a matter of days, again just as they did with the previous deal.
  • Establishment Republicans thus get the best of all sides in any such deal, as they get the policy preferences they want but are absolved of all responsibility for them.  They get to go back to their districts in 2018 and say, “Well, you know, I didn’t like that deal, but (*sigh*), well, the President agreed to it, so I had to just go along,” and hope their sucker constituents will fall for the BS again, just as they’ve fallen for it over the previous three election cycles.  It’s pathetic, it’s un-American, but this is how establishment Republican minds work.
  • So, what last night’s conflicting messages amount to is a preview of the DACA/border security deal to come.  All that really remains to be worked out is to find a way for the President to agree to the deal while saving face on the border wall, which the Democrats will never agree to fund, and which GOP congressional leadership has no real intention of seeking.
  • Again, it’s pathetic, it’s un-American, but this is how Washington DC works.

Just another day in this is how it all works America.

Hollywood Idiots Ruin George Strait’s Noble Idea

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

  • Why do Hollywood leftists have to ruin everything they touch? – My first reaction when I heard that the great George Strait would be putting on a nationally televised hurricane benefit fundraiser was great!  Awesome!  Greatest country music artist ever, native Texan, truly good ol’ boy in every sense of that title, it’ll be a fantastic show and raise a ton of money.  Good for George.
  • But then I saw that he would be joined by notorious cop hater Beyonce’, and I thought, oh, no, here we go.  But hey, Beyonce’ is also a native Houstonian, so I figured she might actually have some real feelings in this game.  So, ok, maybe she’ll keep all the cop-killing symbolism out of this particular performance, and she did.  Good for Beyonce’.
  • But then I saw the execrable Stevie Wonder was going to be included and I slapped my damn forehead.  Holy cow.  This is going downhill fast.  Then the list began to expand to the usual assortment of Hollywood know-nothings (Leonardo DiCaprio, George Clooney), has-beens (Barbra Streisand, Julia Roberts), and malcontents (Jamie Foxx, Robert Deniro) and I knew that what began as a noble effort starring George Strait would now be turned into the classic Hollywood leftist tribute to Mother Gaia that has little to do with helping the victims of Hurricanes Harvey and Irma, and mostly to do with promoting Al Gore’s Global Warming scam.
  • In the end, the celebrities announced their tribute to their Climate Change god had raised $14 million, and traded high-fives.  J.J. Watt, by himself, raised more than $30 million, a total that is still climbing.  Thanks, Hollywood.  Now go scurry back under your kitchen cabinets, and turn out some more really bad movies.
  • Oh, dear God, can somebody please lock this woman in her office for the next year and feed her through a tube?  Please? – Nancy Pelosi, fresh on the heels from a stuttering, stammering, speech-slurring appearance before a gathering of LGBT leaders in San Francisco, placed her public incoherence on display yet again Tuesday evening in Washington, at an event honoring the playwrite of the Broadway hit, Hamilton.  She repeatedly flubbed the name of Lin-Manuel Miranda (there, that isn’t really so hard to say, is it?), referring to him at various points as “Lin-Manuel Madonna”, “Lin-Manual Ramanda” and “Flim-Flannel Hmphfluglebutt”.  (Ok, I made that last one up, but still.)  For those of you who are into self-flagellation, here is a link to the video.
  • This is the worst deal ever!!! It’s terrible!!!!  It’s awful!!!!  It’s the end of the world as we know it!!!!!!!  I vote ‘yes’. – Hey, remember how all the establishment Republicans in DC spent the entire last week wailing that the deal President Trump made with San Fran Nan and Chuckie Schumer was just the worst thing ever and signals nothing less than the end of the Republic?  Remember how they said it was just soooooooooo awful that only a damn fool would agree to it and that they were just going to be back in December, having to address the debt ceiling yet again?  Yeah, none of that was true.
  • The deal was soooooooo awful that it has already been passed by both houses of congress, thus clearing the playing field for congress to spend the rest of this year addressing tax reform.  And guess what?  Most of those establishment Republicans – just about all of them, in fact – voted in favor of the worstest, awfulest, most republic-endingest deal they had ever seen!  Go figure.
  • As for having to come back and address the debt ceiling yet again right before Christmas, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, the leader of the establishment Republican precinct of the DC Swamp, put the lie to that contention, telling an interviewer that, as drafter of that particular provision, he had inserted language that allows the Treasury Secretary to use “emergency measures” to extend the debt ceiling, and that we will be “well into 2018” before congress actually has to do anything with it.
  • All of which proves just one more time that if you believe anything any establishment Republican tells you, you might just be naive.

Just another day in Hollywood Ruins Everything America.

That is all.
