Despite all the Media Hysterics over Porn Stars and Mueller, Trump Just Keeps on Winning

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Tired of all this Winning yet?  Part I – California Governor Jerry Brown announced late Wednesday that he will send 400 state National Guard troops to the border at the request of President Donald Trump.  Brown, always under pressure to pander to his state’s open borders crowd, claimed the troops would not be used for “enforcing federal immigration laws.”  Rather, he said their task would be to supplement state and federal efforts to “combat transnational crime.”

Note to Governor Brown:  Same thing.

Thank you for your service.

Tired of all this Winning yet?  Part II – Speaker Paul Ryan, under whose leadership federal spending has mushroomed at an unchecked, record pace, announced he would not seek re-election to his congressional seat this November.  Immediately upon his announcement, all the inside-the-Beltway pundits warned us in unison that we are sure going to miss Paul Ryan after he’s gone.

These, of course, are the very same inside-the-Beltway pundits who warned us in unison that we would sure miss John Boehner after he was gone.  All of you who have missed John Boehner for even a millisecond, stand up so you can be recognized.  Go ahead, stand.  No, seriously, get up off your sofa and…

Ok, that’s my point.  The Speaker is dead, long live the new Speaker.  I assure you, life will go on.

To his credit, the Speaker said that his decision was predicated on his desire to spend more time with his wife and young children, and he strongly implied that his days of seeking public office are over.  Let’s hope that’s true – he has a beautiful family.

Tired of all this Winning yet?  Part III – Under repeated questioning from Republican house members during his second day of testimony, Facebook android CEO Mark Zuckerberg blinked and claimed that, in the act of banning the completely un-threatening Diamond & Silk as somehow being a “threat to the Facebook community,” his evil minions had “made an enforcement error.”

He also claimed – falsely – that his evil minions had in fact already been in touch with the pro-Trump African American women to correct their error.  This was news to the pair, who are still telling Fox News this morning that they have not heard a peep out of anyone at Facebook.

“We have not been in communication with Facebook,” Hardaway said. “We have not been contacted. We haven’t spoken to anyone over the phone. So that was a lie.”

If this surprises you, you need to pay closer attention.

Tired of all this Winning yet?  Part IV –  Amid all the hysteria over the abusive Mueller investigation and false Zuckerberg testimony, the fake news media barely noticed the new executive order issued by President Trump on Tuesday.

Trust me, this is important.  This order reverses an Obama order that basically ended work requirements for welfare, and, more destructively to our society, allowed states to offer welfare and other social benefits to illegal aliens.

The Trump order requires states to comply with 8 U.S.C. 1611(a), which denies such benefits to non-qualifying illegal aliens, which will end up being almost all of them.  Here is the relevant passage:

“(b)  Within 90 days of the date of this order, the Secretaries shall each submit a report to the President, through the Director of the Office of Management and Budget and the Assistant to the President for Domestic Policy, that:

(i)    states how their respective agencies are complying with 8 U.S.C. 1611(a), which provides that an alien who is not a “qualified alien” as defined by 8 U.S.C. 1641 is, subject to certain statutorily defined exceptions, not eligible for any Federal public benefit as defined by 8 U.S.C. 1611(c);”

Once the illegals who entered the U.S. simply to get on the government dole start realizing that dole is going to stop, the self-deportations will begin.

And the fake news media, so focused as it is on porn stars and its dead Russia Collusion fantasy play, barely blinked.  Amazing.

So, why is the President just now taking this action, 15 months into office?  Mr. Trump was holding out hope for a long time that he could get the Democrats – and Speaker Ryan and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell – to work with him in good faith to reach an agreement on some form of comprehensive immigration reform. He has now realized that none of those congressional actors have ever had any intention of doing that, so is now taking every executive action he can take to improve the situation on his own.

He obviously reached that conclusion after congress presented him with the atrocity of an Omnibus budget bill in March, and has been taking various actions to protect the border since that time.  Tuesday’s executive memorandum was just the latest such action, and most likely won’t be the last.

Just another day in Trump just keeps on #Winning America.

That is all.

Mr. Zuckerberg Goes to Washington

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Tired of all this Winning yet? – Chinese President Xi Jinping announced on Tuesday that he will begin implementing a plan to lower tariffs, enforce respect for the intellectual property of international companies, and take other steps to open up the Chinese economy.  Your fake news media will want you to think this will all take place of Xi’s own volition, with no outside influences.  Your common sense will tell you that these steps are a direct result of the pressure being placed on the Chinese for the first time by an American President.  This is no mere coincidence.  Your common sense is right.

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg, looking for all the world like a 10 year-old wearing his first Easter suit, spent five hours testifying before the combined Senate Judiciary and Commerce Committees on Tuesday.  He made sure the testimony was offered without being sworn in under oath, because he knew he was going to lie about pretty much everything.  Except, of course, when he was merely dodging or obfuscating, or telling various senators that “my team and I will take a look at that and get back to you.”

Note to senators:  He’s not planning to get back to you.

As is typical for any titan of industry offering testimony to congress, Zuckerberg came armed with about a dozen self-serving talking points, and he did his best to respond to any question posed by every senator with one of those talking points, regardless of how irrelevant the response happened to be.  No big deal there – everybody does it.

It was when he was forced by one of the senators to actually answer a question that Zuck had no choice but to lie. And lie he did.  When he hilariously told the committees that the novel-length Facebook “user agreement” is designed to inform users of their rights, Louisiana Senator John Kennedy just couldn’t take it anymore:

“Here’s what everyone’s been trying to tell you today — and I say it gently — your user agreement sucks,” Kennedy said. “The purpose of a user agreement is to cover Facebook’s rear end, not inform users of their rights.”

“I’m going to suggest you go home and rewrite it, and tell your $1,200 dollar and hour lawyers…you want it written in English not Swahili, so the average American user can understand,” Kennedy said.

Yeah, that’s not going to happen.

When Texas Senator Ted Cruz told Zuckerberg that many users believe Facebook has a “pervasive pattern of political bias,” Zuck responded that “I understand where that concern is coming from, because Facebook and the tech industry are located in Silicon Valley, which is an extremely left-leaning place.”  Hey, an actual true statement.  Awesome.

Of course, after Cruz had listed numerous examples where Facebook’s evil minions had banned conservatives – most recently the extremely harmless Diamond and Silk – Zuckerberg couldn’t leave well enough alone, absurdly claiming that “I’m very committed to making sure that Facebook is a platform for all ideas.”

As someone who is currently being shadow-banned by Facebook’s 15,000-20,000 evil minions who monitor content, I can assure you that that is a blatant lie.

In any event, it was overall a good day for the robotic CEO, since the predictably glowing reports of his day in the principle’s office by the fake news media elevated the company’s stock price and added over $3 billion to Zuckerberg’s net worth.  All’s well that ends well.

Far be it from me to defend Zuckerberg and Facebook, but the truth about all of this is that there is simply no real scandal here at all.  Facebook is being pilloried by leftist activists and the fake news media (I know – same thing, right?) for basically implementing its damn business model.

One thing Zuckerberg said that is absolutely true yesterday:  As byzantine and absurd as that user agreement is, everyone who signs up to use Facebook does have the opportunity to review and try to understand it.  The few who take the time to do that will understand that Facebook’s business model is to gather as much of your personal information as it possibly can, and use that information to sell advertising.

People signing up for Facebook are like so many people who walk into a Las Vegas casino and think that all of that glitz and glamour exists out of the goodness of somebody’s hearts.  So many people never stop to think that the reason why all of that can exist is because suckers like them go out there and leave so much of their money behind in all of those cool slot machines and at all of those blackjack, roulette and craps tables.

By the same token, Facebook doesn’t just exist out of the goodness of Mark Zuckerberg’s little heart (that is assuming he actually has a heart, of course – I remain unconvinced).  Facebook is able to exist and be extremely profitable because Facebook takes all of that data they collect on you and sells it to anyone who wants to buy it.

People who worked on the Obama campaigns in 2012 and 2008 have been bragging all over the place since this fake scandal broke about how they did exactly the same thing with Facebook data that Cambridge Analytica did during the 2016 campaign.  The only difference is that Cambridge Analytica worked for a Republican, not a Democrat.

That, and only that, is why this fake scandal has been invented.  Had Cambridge Analytica been working for the Pantsuit Princess, you would have never heard of them.

But hey, inventing fake scandals is what the fake news media does best.  Just ask President Trump.

Just another day in the fake news media America.

That is all.

That Time When Teens Eating Tide Pods Didn’t Seem Like Such a Bad Idea After All

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Oh, darn.  And he’s such a nice, nice man. – Bloomberg reports that poor, poor Mark Zuckerberg is feeling “isolated” these days.  He’s feeling under siege, you know, because those mean ol’ people in the fake news media are mounting the fakest of all fake scandals against his company, all because he shared 50 million customers’ data – you know, the Facebook business model – with a company that did work for the  (gasp!) evil Donald Trump campaign!

Hey, everybody, let’s all take a moment to feel so, so sorry for Mark Zuckerberg, the man who has become a mega-multi-billionaire off his business that consists of sharing your “private” data with others for a profit.  And let’s all join the fake news media and Zuckerberg’s peers, like Apple’s Tim Cook and Tesla’s Elon Musk, in pretending we haven’t known that all along, and have been shocked – shocked! I say – to find out about it just since this fake scandal broke.

There.  Don’t you feel better about yourself now for joining all the liberal hypocrites in this pretense?  Good.  Now, let’s move along.

Hey, every parent has been there.  Or at least wanted to be. – The Sacramento Bee reports that a mother in Arizona, one Sharon Dobbins of Phoenix, became so frustrated trying to get her 16 year-old son out of bed to go to church on Easter Sunday that she finally resorted to giving him a good jolt from her taser, which I guess she just keeps around the house for fun.

According to the Sac Bee, “The victim ‘did not complain of any pain,’ according to police, but did have two small bumps on his leg that he said were left by the taser.”

Neither the little wifey nor I ever tased either of our kids out of bed when they were teenagers, but I do have to admit that there were days when the only reason we did not resort to this approach was that we just didn’t happen to keep a taser handy.  Ok, just kidding.  I think.

Can we get them to just go back to eating Tide pods? – The Sac Bee had a big day reporting on teenagers on Monday, also running a report on the latest teen fad, which involves snorting…wait for it…condoms!  Yes, friends, the little geniuses to whom the Democrat Party wants to give the right the vote have a new party game!

This little deal involves snorting a condom up your nostril and then pulling it out the back of your throat.  The goal is to see who can do it without choking, all the while taping it with your cellphone so you can post it on your favorite social media account.  I swear I don’t make this stuff up.

It is very likely that some of those teenagers that CNN has saturated its airwaves with over the last few weeks follow their on-air gun-control diatribes by going out in the evening and snorting a few condoms.  These are the people who CNN and the Democrat Party want to set the tone for our national debate on the 2nd amendment to the Constitution.

Holy cow.

Let’s just hope most of them post their condom-snorting videos on Facebook so that Mark Zuckerberg can make a big profit selling the videos to the highest bidder.  This is a special kind of stupidity that deserves to be preserved for the ages.

Just another day in can we raise the voting age to 35? America.

That is all.

Media Outraged By Big Tech Data Scam – But Only Because One Finally Benefitted a Republican

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

But they’d all happily vote for Bill Clinton again tomorrow. – A new poll indicates that 53% of Democrats now think it’s wrong to vote for a candidate who has done immoral things in his private life.  *sigh*

This will happen as soon as all those Flying J’s truck stops start selling decaf halfcaf skinny mocha soy lattes with two honeys and a twist of lemon. – NBCnews.com has a piece this morning titled “Why Millenials Should Start Considering Truck Driving.”  Ok, it’s actually good advice, but, well, it’s not exactly the vision Obama filled these young peoples’ heads with for eight long years, is it?  But it turns out our country is now overwhelmed with unemployable social workers, dog groomers, computer coders and Russian feminist literature studies majors, and we’re a little short on people who want to keep our economy moving by driving long-haul trucks for a living.  Go figure.  No one could have possibly seen that coming.

The fake news media finally catches onto the Big Tech data scam – Of course, this only happened when the “improper” use of 50 million Facebook users’ information ended up benefiting a Republican, i.e., the Trump Campaign in 2016.  No one in the fake media gave a rat’s behind when Google set up a satellite office in the Obama White House and Facebook and Twitter eagerly shared all the data there was to share with the Obama campaign during the 2012 election cycle.  But now that some firm that Trump didn’t even use during the general election had access to Facebook’s data that might have benefited the media’s enemy, well, that’s crossing the fake news media’s fake red line.  Because that’s what the fake news media does.

Here’s our reality when dealing with Facebook, Twitter, Google and the other Big Tech websites:  All they really are is data accumulators who are in business to sell their data.  If you provide data to, say, Facebook, Facebook is ultimately going to sell that data to make a profit.  Despite their periodic protests to the contrary, there have been so many examples of Facebook and Twitter doing this that you have to be a hopeless simpleton to actually believe anything you do on any of these platforms will somehow remain private and confidential.

The fake media is treating this latest in a long line of examples as some sort of major event, but the truth is that, had the firm in question here, Cambridge Analytica, been working on behalf of the Clinton Campaign, this would not be a story at all – you’d have never heard of these people.  Facebook and Twitter have been shadow-banning conservative news outlets and users for years with no objection from anyone at CNN or the NYTimes.  Google has almost since its’ first day of existence been biasing its search results in favor of Democrats, and no one at Yahoo News or the Washington Post has uttered a peep about it.

The hilarious part of all of this fake media attention is that it is giving momentum to the efforts in Washington to find some way to heavily regulate these big tech platforms in the future.  While any effort by the federal government to regulate these big tech companies would no doubt end up being a slow-rolling train wreck – because that’s the core competency of federal government regulators – it would be a certain form of justice to see the Facebooks and Googles of the world end up being hoisted up on their own petards.

Hey, at least we got some great Twitter memes out of it (see below) – The Washington Free Beacon reports that U.S. taxpayers are having to foot the bill to the tune of $22 grand for the Pantsuit Princess’s book tour trip to India.  That total amount is the combined cost of Secret Service protection for the Fainting Felon, along with administrative costs incurred by the State Department.  But hey,  why wouldn’t the millions of deplorables who the Coughing Crook insulted during the trip be glad to pay for a trip in which she broke her wrist climbing into a million dollar bathtub and humiliated herself by not being able to even come down a flight of stairs without major assistance?  Good times…good times…

 

Just another day in big tech data scamming America.

That is all.

If Democrats Didn’t Exist, We Wouldn’t Want to Invent Them

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Tired of all this Winning yet? – The Daily Caller reports that, in the cable news ratings race, fake news king CNN did not have a single program in its entire lineup that ranked among the top 20 during the month of February.  When the bad guys are losing, the country is #Winning.

They call it the Yu Darvish 2-inning start bug. – The Los Angeles Dodgers reported that a “flu-like” illness that was causing fevers and vomiting had ravaged dozens of their players Thursday evening, causing Manager Dave Roberts to scramble to find enough players to man the team’s spring training game on Friday.  No word if the flu struck after the team had re-watched film of Game 7 of last year’s World Series against the Houston Astros, but it seems likely.

RINOs in action. – Arizona Senator Jeff Flake, of course appearing on CNN (because who else would bother to interview Jeff Flake?), told his fake interviewer David Axelrod that he fully expects President Trump to have a Republican primary challenger in the 2020 race for the GOP nomination.  The Hill, which is fast becoming the web-based fake news challenger to CNN, thought this was newsworthy, which is almost inexplicable given that Flake announced his retirement late last year because his public approval rating in his home state was hovering in the low teens.

Justice Department leaks move into the theater of the absurd. – The New York Times, Washington Post and Associated Press all “broke” a story on Friday asserting that former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe will be accuse of making improper leaks by Inspector General Michael Horowitz in his report to be released in the coming days.  The “sources” of those stories were – guess what? – improper leaks by personnel within the Justice Department and/or the FBI.  It is highly doubtful any of the liberals at any of those fake news organizations are self-aware enough to understand the high degree of humor and irony present in this situation.

Speaking of theater of the absurd, PJ Media reports that the Obama holdovers at the Library of Congress have invited freaking Bill Nye the Science Guy to speak at a symposium on how to protect our planet from an asteroid collision.  I kid you not.  Mr. Nye, an engineer who has posed as a scientist on television as a host of kid’s shows for 30 years, and more recently become a dedicated climate scammer because it pays better, will be on the agenda with a real scientist, astronomer Dr. Amy Mainzer.  This is a disgrace, and the people who organized this program should be fired without severance pay.

Democrats in action. – Speaking of liberals with no sense of humor, the pinheads at Facebook issued an apology on Friday for threatening to censor a Christian satire site called the Babylon Bee.  Facebook’s evil minions were acting on a tip from their fellow humorless liberal evil minions at the “fact-checking” Snopes website, which had flagged the Babylon Bee as being “fake news.”  Well, of course it’s fake news, you mindless simpletons – it’s SATIRE.  Dear God, people.

More Democrats in action. – Tamika Mallory, who, along with radical Islamist Linda Sarsour was one of the main organizers of the 2017 “women’s march”, came under fire on Friday for having attended a speech by the heinous anti-semite bigot Louis Farrakhan.  She naturally defended herself by…wait for it… endorsing anti-semite hate speech on Twitter.  I swear I don’t make this stuff up.

Still more Democrats in action. – But hey, you’ll have to excuse Ms. Mallory and other Democrat voters for their bigotry.  After all, they’re just emulating their elected leaders.  Take Chuck Schumer for example.  On Wednesday, Schumer announced in the well of the U.S. Senate that he was voting against confirmation of a Trump judicial nominee for the simple reason that he is white.  Oh, he put all sorts of flowery liberal “need for diversity, yada yada yada, blah-blah-blah” rhetoric around it, but there is no escaping the fact that it was a stunningly racist statement.  But it’s always been ok for Democrats to be racist;  otherwise, we’d have never had the Ku Klux Klan.

Just another day in absurd Democrat theater America.

That is all.

Today’s Campaign Update (Because The Campaign Never Ends) – 3.2.2017

– Tired of winning yet? Here is what fake NY Times columnist Paul Krugman – who the Times loves to bill as a “Nobel Prize-winning economist” – had to say about the victory of Donald J. Trump on Election Night: “If the question is when markets will recover, a first-pass answer is never.” Yesterday, the Dow Jones Industrial Average shot up 303 points to close over 21,000 for the first time ever. Obviously, Mr. Krugman’s Nobel Prize was exactly as well-deserved as the one given to Barack Obama for no good reason whatsoever in 2009.

– But not everyone is winning in Trump’s America. Bloomberg reports that Mexican Billionaire Carlos Slim – who famously overpaid for a 17% stake in the dying New York Times a few years back – has seen his net worth plummet from $68 billion to $51 billion since Election Day. D’oh!

– In today’s latest episode of Democrats eating their own, the far-far-far-leftwing of the Democratic Party – as opposed to the more moderate far-far-leftwing of the Party – is now out recruiting far-far-far-left candidates to oppose the 10 incumbent far-far-leftwingers who hold Senate seats in states that President Trump won in the 2016 election. It seems that being far-far-leftwing and voting only 98% of the time with the likes of Bernie Sanders just is not far-far-far-leftwing enough for the true radicals who actually fund the Democratic Party these days. This is of course great news for Republicans since it demonstrates conclusively that the people who run the Democratic Party have learned absolutely nothing at all from the utter devastation the Party has incurred at the polls over the last decade. Cool.

– “We fundamentally reject the assumption that Democrats can only win in red states by pandering to racists and big bankers,” said Claire Sandberg, a co-founder of the progressive political action committee We Will Replace You. “The way we beat Trumpism and take back Congress and statehouses is offering a coherent vision of our own to put people back to work. … We don’t need to completely compromise our own values and principles.” To be clear, the next time Ms. Sandberg or any of her compatriots offers any sort of “coherent vision” about how to put people back to work will be the day Hell officially freezes over.

– Bowdoin psychology professor Zachary Rothschild and University of Southern Mississippi psychology professor Lucas A. Keefer have produced a new study in which they assert the following: “When people publicly rage about perceived injustices that don’t affect them personally, we tend to assume this expression is rooted in altruism—a “disinterested and selfless concern for the well-being of others.” But… professing such third-party concern—what social scientists refer to as “moral outrage”—is often a function of self-interest, wielded to assuage feelings of personal culpability for societal harms or reinforce (to the self and others) one’s own status as a Very Good Person.”

Friends, I give you today’s American Progressive Facebook-posting nutjob.

Just another day in Trump Derangement Syndrome America.

That is all.
