The Mueller Coup d’etat Unwinds a Little More

  • Heck, I didn’t know he’d gone anywhere. – The UK Metro is reporting this morning that the “comeback album” for white rapper Eminem – the natural inheritor of the proud legacy of the great Vanilla Ice (ok, I’m JK) – is not being well-received by what I have no doubt is his legion of fans.  The British writer says that the collection of what I guess are ‘songs’ is getting “quite a whammy of negative comments.”  And that just breaks my heart.  Can you tell?
  • I had no idea you could take the over/under bet on whether or not we go to war. – Senator Lindsey Graham is apparently angling for a future career as a Las Vegas bookmaker.  “I would say there’s a three in 10 chance we use the military option,” Graham predicted in an interview with a fake reporter at The Atlantic. If the North Koreans conduct an additional test of a nuclear bomb—their seventh—“I would say 70 percent.”  So, if any of you are out in Vegas this weekend, put $100 down for me on the under.  I’ll pay you back.  No, really, seriously, I’m good for it.
  • Is there an over/under on the Mueller Investigation ever finding any evidence of actual “collusion”? – The slow-rolling coup d’etat led by Robert Mueller continued its unraveling on Thursday, as Senate Homeland Security Committee Chairman Ron Johnson (R-WI) released documents showing that the statement given by former FBI Director James Comey in July 2016, which “exonerated” Princess Pantsuit of wrongdoing in her blatantly illegal emailing activities was heavily edited.  More to the point, it was heavily edited and watered down during early May, two full months before Comey had even bothered to interview the Coughing Crook or about a dozen other key witnesses in the case.
  • The original text of the memo, written by Comey himself, states several times that the Fainting Felon was guilty of “gross negligence” in her handling of classified emails.  That’s important because, in the federal statutes, “gross negligence” in handling classified information happens to be a crime.  But the edits watered that charge down to “extreme carelessness”, to which the governing federal statues make no reference.  Voila!, the Cackling Candidate was magically exonerated.
  • The revelation of this editing process within a highly-politicized FBI does deep damage to the already tattered reputation of James Comey, who just happens to be a key witness in the Mueller witch hunt.  After all, the entire basis used by the oily Rod Rosenstein for the appointment of Mueller in the first place was Comey’s illegal leaking of his meeting notes to the New York Times for publication.  If Comey lied to the American people about what he had found during the Clinton investigation and when he found it, and lied to multiple congressional committees during testimony on the same subject matter, why would anyone believe anything else he has to say?  The man is obviously a skunk and a snake, the very worst kind of DC Swamp creature, which I told you all he was back in July 2016.
  • Coming as it does on the heels of so many other revelations this week about various players in the Mueller coup d’etat staff, even some hardcore Democrats are starting to come to the realization that Mueller’s own credibility has been irrevocably damaged.  One such hardcore Democrat is Mark Penn, who served as the head pollster for Bill Clinton, and also worked on Princess Pantsuit’s senate campaign.
  • Appearing on Fox News last night, Penn told host Martha MacCallum that he believes both Mueller and the FBI face a “crisis in public confidence.”  Penn cited a recent poll conducted by Harvard in which 54% of respondents agreed that Mueller himself has conflicts of interest that prevent him from conducting himself fairly, and a whopping 63% believe the FBI is stonewalling congress.  He also noted that this poll was conducted before this week’s flood of new revelations about the horrific behavior of FBI super agent Peter Strzok and various other players on the Mueller coup staff.
  • Folks, our country is in a major crisis.  It is in that crisis because the utterly corrupted leadership at the FBI and various intelligence agencies during the Obama Administration set themselves up as a de facto fourth branch of government, a branch unaccountable to anyone.  The evidence we now have at hand clearly shows that, early in 2016, that fourth branch engaged itself in a focused conspiracy in coordination with the Clinton Campaign and the DNC to try to deny Donald Trump the presidency.  After Trump won the election last November, that conspiracy morphed into a focused  effort to undermine him and to ultimately remove him from office.
  • The Harvard poll cited by Mr. Penn shows that, despite the best efforts of the fake news media to avoid reporting these realities, a clear majority of Americans have begun to figure this all out.  This is a big problem for Mr. Rosenstein and Mr. Mueller, because the flood of revelations isn’t going to slow down anytime soon,  and they really haven’t left themselves any easy way to end the conspiracy they’ve been leading without their own culpability being fully revealed.
  • The next few months are going to be a very interesting and perilous time for our country.  Better buckle up.

Just another day in the Coup keeps unwinding America.

That is all.

The Road Goes On Forever And The Fake News Never Ends

  • The road goes on forever, and the fake news never ends (with apologies to the great Robert Earl Keen) – After 10,000 texts between FBI Agent Peter Strzok  and his lover, Justice Dept. lawyer Lisa Page, were made public, the three national broadcast networks very predictably disgraced themselves with their fake coverage of the matter.  But then, it would have been actual news had they behaved otherwise, and these networks are not in the business of making or covering real news anymore.
  • None of the networks mentioned the two federal employees were engaged in an extra-marital affair, and none mentioned the most disturbing message of all, the one Strzok sent to Page reading, “I want to believe the path you threw out for consideration in Andy’s office – that there’s no way he [Trump]  gets elected – but I’m afraid we can’t take that risk. It’s like an insurance policy in the unlikely event you die before you’re 40…”
  • Wait, what?  The “Andy” to whom they’re referring is obviously FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, but what is this “insurance policy” the two apparently discussed with McCabe, a policy that would presumably undermine Trump should he ultimately win the election?  No one at any of the three networks had the curiosity to ask, much less report on that key question.
  • Nor did any of the networks cover the later exchange that begins with Page texting, “maybe you’re meant to stay where you are because you’re meant to protect the country from that menace,” to which Strzok – who apparently thinks he is the FBI’s version of Batman – replies, “I can protect our country at many levels”, presumably referring to whatever secret “insurance policy” had been hatched in the office of Andrew McCabe.
  • All of which probably adds up to the real reason why McCabe suddenly decided to cancel his long-scheduled Tuesday appearance before the House Judiciary Committee at the last minute – he may need time to coordinate with the DNC and the fake media on a set of talking points about this “insurance policy”.
  • But the 20 million or so Americans who for some inexplicable reason still get their “news” from ABC, NBC and CBS all went to bed blissfully unaware of any of this, which, of course, was the networks’ collective goal.
  • Elsewhere, fake host Anderson Cooper and the PR hacks at CNN had to scramble to come up with an explanation for a highly-inflammatory tweet that was sent out from Cooper’s Twitter feed early Wednesday morning.  After President Donald Trump tweeted that “The reason I originally endorsed Luther Strange (and his numbers went up mightily), is that I said Roy Moore will not be able to win the General Election. I was right!”, the Cooper account quickly came back with  “Oh Really? You endorsed him you tool! Pathetic loser.”
  • Cooper then went into panic mode, first tweeting that he  “just woke up to find out someone gained access to my twitter account. i have not sent a tweet in days or replied to any tweets. We are looking into how this happened.”
  • CNN officials, already seeing what little credibility they had remaining – which, let’s face it, wasn’t much – swirling down the Anderson Cooper toilet, later issued an absurd explanation that said that “His assistant inadvertently left his phone unlocked and unattended at the gym early this morning, and someone took his phone and sent the tweet.”  Which of course is ridiculously and hilariously false.
  • Either Cooper sent the tweet or his assistant sent it in a fit of pique.  That’s the only rational scenario that would explain this.  But rather than just admit that, apologize for the incident, and move on, CNN wants you to believe that some random guy at the assistant’s “gym” picked up the phone, somehow realized he could shoot a tweet from Cooper’s Twitter account, paged through the news to figure out what he wanted to tweet about, and then sent that inflammatory tweet, all while the assistant was working out or whatever he was doing at his “gym.”
  • The main thing this proves is that whomever it was at CNN that came up with this cock and bull story has no future whatsoever writing scripts for James Bond movies.

Just another day in the fake news never ends America.

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.

That Sad Moment When You Realize The FBI Is As Fake As The Fake News Media

  • I want to believe in the FBI.  Hell, who doesn’t?  Who doesn’t want to believe that our nation’s highest federal law enforcement agency is a stand-up deal, that we can trust the agency and its leaders to be honest and do the right thing?  Of course we all hope that is the case.  Which is why it is so distressing this morning to learn that the FBI’s stonewalling of multiple court orders and congressional committees not only continues, but has in fact escalated.
  • Late on Monday, we learned that the Deputy Director of the FBI, Andrew McCabe, had suddenly and without real explanation cancelled his long-scheduled appearance to testify before the House  Intelligence Committee today.  There was no immediate response from anyone on the Committee, but Fox News reporter Chad Pergram tweeted Monday night that “congressional sources” told him that a subpoena would likely be issued to try to compel his appearance.  That’s fairly ironic, since it took a threatened subpoena in early November to convince McCabe to agree to testify in the first place.
  • Pergram further reported that his sources believe McCabe cancelled his appearance due to  a concern that he would be questioned about Justice Department muckety-muck Bruce Ohr and his wife Nellie, who we also learned on Monday worked for Fusion GPS during the 2016 campaign.  Ohr, of course, was recently “reassigned”, i.e., marginalized within the DOJ when it was learned that he held meetings with Fusion GPS – the firm that was hired by the Clinton Campaign and the DNC to collude with Russian officials to compile the fake Trump Dossier – throughout the 2016 election campaign.
  • So, because he was “concerned” that he might be forced to answer questions he obviously does not want to answer, McCabe apparently chose what has become FBI standard policy in 2017, which is to join the agency’s ever-growing stonewalling of any testimony or records production that might reveal the truth about what senior officials at the FBI and the DOJ were up to during the 2016 election cycle.
  • A DOJ spokesman is making the rounds of the TV morning shows claiming it’s all just an innocent “scheduling error,” but that’s just another obvious dodge.  How is any American supposed to have confidence in a “law-enforcement” agency whose obvious working policy is to blatantly and repeatedly stonewall efforts by others to discover if laws were violated?  It’s an absurd expectation that will only be complied with by those who have been brainwashed to believe anything their government tells them to believe.
  • Asking Americans to do that is no different than the hilariously absurd comment by Atlantic Editor David Frum on Sunday that “mistakes are precisely the reason people should trust the media…They get partial pieces of the truth. So in the process there are going to be overshoots and undershoots.”
  • Frum’s idiotic remarks would have some level of validity if there were ever any “undershoots.”  But what we see from our fake national news media where President Trump and his Administration is concerned is a constant stream of laughable “overshoots”, false reports that always, without exception, cast a negative light on the President.
  • Think about it:  over the past 2-1/2 years we have seen dozens, if not hundreds, of instances in which a fake reporter from a fake media outlet like the NYTimes, the WaPo, CNN, and NBC rushes to get out a “bombshell” report that is then repeated throughout the entirety of the fake media as “the beginning of the end for Donald Trump”, only to have said the fake media outlet who filed the initial report have to retract or “correct” it because it turned out to be entirely false.  We saw three such instances last week alone, and pretty much no week has gone by during 2017 in which we have not seen at least one example of this pattern taking place.
  • Yet, you would be at great pains to produce a single example over the last 30 months in which the fake news media made, in Frum’s parlance, a “mistake” that was false in a way that worked to the President’s benefit.
  • Here’s a clue for David Frum:  when a long series of events flow in only one direction, those events are not “mistakes”;  rather, they are the norm.
  • When it comes to the FBI or the fake news media, no American can trust them anymore.  The biggest “mistake” anyone can make is to try to defend their institutionalized behavior.

Just another day in fake FBI America.

That is all.

Doug Jones’s “Wendy Davis” Campaign Strategy Seems To Have Failed. Who Could’ve Seen That Coming?

  • It snowed so hard at one point during the NFL game in Buffalo between the Bills and the Colts that fans were unable to see the game from midway up in the stands.  Climate “scientists” all over the world who are desperate to secure another government grant blamed it all on “global warming.”
  • Meanwhile in Dallas, after averaging less than 200 yards passing through the first 12 games of the season, Cowboys’ QB Dak Prescott exploited the terrible NY Giants defense for 332 yards in the Cowboys’ 30-10 win.  Climate “scientists” will probably find a way to blame that on “global warming” too.  I mean, it’s responsible for everything else, so…
  • In Jacksonville, Seahawks defensive lineman Quinton Jefferson became so enraged when a fan threw a beer at him that he attempted to climb up into the stands to get at the clown before he was restrained by a Seahawks coach.
  • In Houston, Texans’ QB Tom Savage was seen literally twitching uncontrollably after taking a vicious hit to the head in the first half of the Texans’ game with the San Francisco 49ers.  Despite the NFL’s much-ballyhooed “concussion protocol,” Texans’ head coach Bill O’Brien saw fit to just shove him right back into the game just a few plays later.
  • In stadiums all over the NFL, empty seats were the mode of the day.  This was more typical of stadiums that play host to losing teams, like those in Cleveland, Buffalo, Tampa and Houston, but was also true in Charlotte, where the Panthers beat the Vikings to run their record to 9-4.  At the same time, seat prices for games all over the league continued their season-long collapse, with some seats in Buffalo going on line for $3 (that is not a misprint).
  • No word if NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell, who has overseen the slow-motion collapse of what once was America’s sport and whose contract the league’s sub-moron collection of owners just renewed for another five years, would try to blame the declining ticket prices and attendance on “global warming,” but he might as well give it a try.  His owners’ group has been lapping up his BS for a decade now, and would probably just lap that up, too.
  • In its final average of polls in the Alabama senate special election, RealClearPolitics shows Republican Roy Moore with a 3.8% lead over Democrat Doug Jones.  Moore’s lead in the polls taken during the last two weeks is 5.3%.  All of which means that Moore will most likely win the actual election by 7-8% at the end of the day.
  • Once Moore has won the election and been seated in the Senate, the GOP will have to figure out what to do with him.  Blaming it all on “global warming” probably is not an option in this case.
  • On Sunday, the fake reporters covering Moore’s campaign took to wondering where he’s been the last few days, when he hasn’t made a single public campaign appearance.  Meanwhile, Jones decided it would be smart for him to bring down a former governor of Massachusetts and a sitting senator from New Jersey to help him win a statewide race in Alabama.  This does not strike me as a winning strategy for some reason.  Go figure.
  • But Jones has been pretty much tone deaf throughout this race, running essentially the same campaign strategy that Democrat Wendy Davis ran in the 2014 Texas gubernatorial race against Republican Greg Abbott.  Davis, if you remember, ran a campaign based on abortion-on-demand, open borders and government control of everything, and brought in a bunch of leftwing Obama minions to “help”.  That strategy, such as it was, resulted in Davis getting 38.9% of the vote vs. Abbott’s 59.3%.  Granted, Democrats haven’t won a single statewide election in Texas since 1994, but that was an epic blowout even by Lone Star State standards.
  • In deploying essentially the same strategy as Davis, Jones will come closer in his race against Moore, but that doesn’t mean he ran a smarter race than Davis did.  It just means he a lot more help from the fake news media, and from his opponent.
  • Finally, think about this:  If you’re a “leader” in the national Democrat Party, and you see that you can’t even win a senate race in which the Republican has been the target of the single most focused fake news media hit job in modern U.S. history, how are you feeling about your chances of winning control of either house of congress in the 2018 mid-terms?  Two words:  Not very good.  Ok, that’s three, but still…

Just another day in it’s not looking good for the Democrats America.

That is all.

Never Forget That Cleaning The DC Swamp Is Literally A Life Or Death Struggle

  • President Donald Trump was on fire at a rally in Pensacola Friday evening, where he took on an array of his adversaries, from the fake news media to (sadly) the FBI to huckster attorney Gloria Allred.   Commenting on the legal and political system at one point, the President of the United States said “this is a rigged system.  There’s no country like ours, but we have a lot of sickness in some of our institutions.”  Truer words have never been spoken.
  • After 8 years of an anti-American, Saul Alinskyite presidency, pretty much all of our institutions are sick.  That was, of course, the Obama plan.  Here are some examples of our corrupted institutions:
    • The courts, where Obama-appointed judges held up a perfectly lawful travel ban for 9 months before the Supreme Court finally slapped them down on a 7-2 decision last week;
    • NOAA, where a group of climate “scientists” spent the last 8 years systematically revising the global temperature records in order to invent “global warming”;
    • the fake news media, which literally sold its soul in 2008 to get Obama elected, and now stands as a de facto opposition political party to the American people;
    • the EPA, which spent the last 8 years doing everything it could to depress the U.S. economy with an avalanche of regulations knowingly based on bad science;
    • the State Department, which continues to fight against the agenda of a duly-elected President;
    • And of course, the Department of Justice and the FBI, which continue to sponsor Robert Mueller’s slow-rolling coup d’etat effort, while at the same time stonewalling an array of information requests by the courts and various congressional committees.
  • That list could go on and on, but these are some of the major highlights.  The point being that if you had thought cleaning out this swamp was going to be easy, you should have by now have disabused yourself of that notion.  This is going to be hard, and as we’ve seen with the sham Mueller “investigation”, the swamp denizens are going to fight back every step of the way.  This is life or death for them – if Trump succeeds, many of them, like Hillary Clinton, end up in prison.
  • To understand the truth of this, all one need to is go back to the incident during the campaign, when now-disgraced NBC fake host Matt Lauer actually decided to ask the Pantsuit Princess some fairly tough questions that had not been pre-approved by Donna Brazile during an interview on the peacock network.  After it was over, staff behind the scenes reported that the Coughing Crook screamed at NBC executives and went into an expletive-filled tirade:  “If I lose, we all go down and that Fascist F**k will have us swinging from nooses! What the f**k is wrong with you idiots?”  She wasn’t joking, folks – to her, and many others in her and Obama’s orbit, this was literally a life or death campaign.
  • So have patience – this is going to take awhile.
  • In other news, Deputy National Security Advisor Dina Powell announced late Friday that she will be leaving her post at the end of the year.  Powell, an ardent NeverTrump nitwit who should have never been hired, has long been rumored to have been the source of many of the negative leaks that flooded out of the White House during the first several months of the Administration.  Good riddance – she will not be missed.
  • Speaking of White House leaking, isn’t it interesting that, since rumors circulated in late summer that the President and Chief of Staff John Kelly had started feeding differing information to suspected leakers on-staff in order to see what ended up in the WaPo or NYTimes, those leaks have slowed to a trickle?  And that many of the leaks that do still occur end up being shown to be false and blowing up in the fake news media’s collective face?
  • Funny how that works.

Just another day in cleaning out the DC Swamp America.

That is all.

The Campaign Update Week In Review: Winning. Sooooo Much Winning.

So, let’s review the week we have just experienced, because it will be remembered as the week the tide truly turned:

  • Humiliation for pretty much every major fake media outlet:  CNN, Reuters, Bloomberg, ABC, NBC, CBS, MSNBC, WaPo and NPR.  Somehow, the NYTimes escaped major embarrassment, unless I missed something.  Sheer luck, no doubt.
  • The Mueller coup d’etat effort began to come unraveled, as detailed in Friday morning’s Campaign Update.
  • Supreme court upholds Trump travel ban on a 7-2 decision.
  • The Trump economy is booming, and our pathetic ex-President is wandering around the country desperately trying to take credit for it.
  • ISIS is in utter and complete shambles, a story the fake news media is desperately ignoring.
  • Roy Moore is headed for a landslide win in next Tuesday’s special election, as pretty much all of his accusers have been shown to be liars.
  • Trump announces U.S. will finally move its embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.  Democrats and media go insane with rage.
  • Al Franken and John Conyers have been run out of congress by their Democrat colleagues, who are desperately searching for a new angle of attack against President Trump, now that their whole “Russia Collusion” fantasy has collapsed.
  • Justice Department initiates investigation into Planned Parenthood’s trafficking in baby body parts.
  • Bad actors in the FBI and Justice Department are being systematically marginalized.
  • The biggest tax cut in American history being negotiated in conference committee.
  • And did I mention that the Trump economy is booming?  I did? That’s ok, it can’t be pointed out often enough.

Just another week in I cannot get enough of this #WINNING  America.

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.

Fake News, Fake Republicans and Real, Live Snowflakes – Merry Resistmas, America!

  • Now we know why his approval rating in Arizona is 11%. – Hey, remember when Arizona Sen. Jeff Flake used to pretend to be a Republican, just like his fellow Senator, John McCain?  Yeah, those were good times, but they’re over now.  On Tuesday, Flake wrote a check to ultra-liberal Democrat Doug Jones, who is running against the very weird Roy Moore for the senate seat in Alabama.  Embarrassingly, Flake’s check to Jones, which he made sure to trumpet all over the social media space, was for a paltry $100, meaning he’s not only rankly dishonest, he’s also a skinflint.  But hey, liberals are always far more generous giving away other people’s money than contributing their own, right?
  • Hey, all you SJWs, snowflakes and pussy hat wearers, if you lack a tree-topper for your “holiday” tree this year, a mail-order company can supply you one of your favorite “inspiring woman”, so long as your favorite “inspiring woman” is either Beyonce’, Serena Williams or Hillary Clinton!  I swear I don’t make this stuff up: 
  •  
  • Our young people seem to suffer from a severe lack of self-awareness. – The UK Telegraph carried a piece yesterday titled, “Don’t call us snowflakes – it damages our mental health, say young people”.  I kid you not, it’s a serious piece.  Note to young people:  If being called a ‘snowflake’ damages your mental health, that means YOU’RE A DAMN SNOWFLAKE!  How is it possible that that really needed to be said?
  • Tuesday was a big day for fake news news.  Let’s start with ABC News’s announcement that its star fake reporter, Brian Ross, will no longer be allowed to cover stories involving President Trump when he comes back from his 30 day holiday in January.  ABC had also made sure to leak the text of a “memo” written by its News Division President James Goldston, ostensibly lambasting his staff over Ross’s false report from last Friday, which temporarily tanked the stock market.  This is all window dressing, folks – ABC used the same tactic after Ross filed a previous fake report a few years ago, falsely tying a mass shooter to the Tea Party.  Nothing is going to change at ABC – the news fakery will go on unabated.
  • Meanwhile, over at NBC, if you are laboring under the illusion that Matt Lauer’s intra-office sexcapades were some sort of big secret at the Peacock Network, well, think again.  Everyone at NBC – and apparently at every other fake news media outlet – knew everything about Lauer, and many of his colleagues were willing participants and abettors of his behavior.  That’s the only reasonable conclusion one can draw from the report linked here from Fox News, which details the proceedings of a 2008 obscene roasting of Lauer at which everyone assembled in the room laughed uproariously about the fake news host’s debauchery.  I would post out-takes from it, but the Campaign Update draws the line at repeating jokes about anal sex.  In any event, if you’re thinking that NBC’s convenient jettisoning of Lauer – which will save the network $27 million annually – means the culture there will change, you should probably disabuse yourself of that silly notion.  No word if Charlie Rose and Mark Halperin had seats at the head table, but it does seem likely.
  • Hey, remember when real journalists would always require at least two corroborating sources before running with a big news story?  Yeah, those times are dead. – The normally fairly reliable Bloomberg ran with a report mid-day on Tuesday that Special Counsel Robert Mueller had issued a subpoena to Deutsche Bank demanding it turn over client records related to its relationship with President Trump.  Within a few hours, Trump’s legal team had completely debunked the story, and one can only wonder  what the motive was for running with it in the first place, given that Bloomberg cited only a single, naturally unidentified source for the information.
  • But hey, faking the news is a highly-competitive business, and if Bloomberg’s gonna play with the big boys at the NYTimes and the WaPo, inconvenient things like real journalistic practices and editorial control have to be tossed out the proverbial window, right?  Right.

Just another day in fakety fakey fake news media America.

That is all.
