That Vaunted “Blue Wave” is Going to Become Just Another Democrat Trail of Tears

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Feel good quote of the week. – “John Brennan…needs a very good lawyer…he’s going to be in front of a grand jury.” – Former U.S. Attorney Joe DiGenova, speaking last night on the Tucker Carlson Show.

Why does Donald Trump hate women so?????? – Gina Haspel, Donald Trump’s nominee, yesterday became the first woman ever confirmed to become the Director of the Central Intelligence Agency.  This woman’s nomination was opposed by 2 Republicans and 43 Democrats in the U.S. Senate.

As far as I can tell, the biggest black mark against Ms. Haspel was the glowing endorsement she received from John Brennan.  Certainly does give one pause.

This is in the New York Times so it’s probably fake news, but the fake newspaper of record has a report that big Hollywood muckety-muck agent Jay Sures has recently shopped a new show concept to both CNN and MSNBC.  Sures’ big idea is to create a sort of “Crossfire” reboot pairing up …wait for it…Steve Scaramucci and Michael Avenatti!  That’s right, The Mooch vs. the Creepy Porn Lawyer, a match made in hell.

ummm…No thanks.

Why does the fake news media hate Israel?  Good question, though the answer is pretty obvious. – Harvard Law Professor Alan Dershowitz has a very good piece in the Washington Examiner titled “Why Does The Media Encourage Hamas Violence Against Israel?”

It’s a very valid question, because there is no doubt at all that the American media does this, with its incredibly biased coverage of events involving clashes between Hamas-directed “Palestinians” and the Israeli armed forces.  The latest such event, of course, took place earlier this week, when Hamas sent thousands of armed protesters to try to breach a border wall.

When more than 4 dozen of the “Palestinians” ended up dead, the U.S. media all sang from the same fake hymnal, declaring it a massacre of “peaceful” protesters.  When Hamas later freely admitted that almost all of the dead were in fact armed Hamas terrorist thugs, the American media dropped the story like a hot potato.

The obvious answer to the Professor’s question, of course, is that pretty much every fake reporter, editor and talking head in the American news media is a liberal, and liberals have been taught in American universities to hate Israel with a passion for the last several decades.  This anti-Israel bias bleeds into all their reporting, and you end up with the feeding frenzy we saw on Monday and Tuesday of this week.

The better question is this:  Why do most American Jews continue to vote for liberal politicians, almost all of whom hate Israel, too?  It’s one of the most persistent and maddening aspects of American politics.  Perhaps Mr. Dershowitz, a life-long Democrat, should ask that question of himself.

 

The Examiner also has a report on discussions taking place among the GOP leadership in congress to cancel this year’s month-long August congressional recess:

“Republicans are threatening to keep the Senate open for an extended summer session to process agenda items delayed by Democratic obstruction. But the political benefits of denying incumbent Democrats valuable time on the campaign trail is also factor in the Republicans’ deliberations, and why they appear more willing that usual to give up a treasured annual vacation.”

Before anyone gets too excited about this proposition – which would be an outstanding strategic move – we should all remember that the same discussions took place last year, and the milquetoast Republican leaders ultimately decided they didn’t want to take the media heat they’d receive for actually sticking around Washington and getting the people’s business done.

The wild card this year, though, is the fact that Kevin McCarthy, Steve Scalise and Jim Jordan, the three men competing to succeed Paul Ryan as Speaker of the House, are all more aggressive partisans than Ryan has ever been.  We can hope that pressure from these men might prod Ryan into doing the right thing here, but it is still ultimately a decision that will be made by Ryan and the depressingly non-aggressive Mitch McConnell.

Bottom line:  Be happy if it happens, but don’t go buy any celebratory champagne until it does.

MS-13 is a bunch of sub-human animals – what’s the question here? – After the fake news media uniformly lied about President Trump’s description of MS-13 gang members on Wednesday as “animals”  – dishonestly claiming in unison that the President was applying the pejorative term to all immigrants – Mr. Trump was asked about the matter again at an unrelated White House event yesterday evening.  His answer was not surprising:

“When the MS-13 comes in, when the other gang members come into our country, I refer to them as animals and guess what — I always will,” Trump told reporters”.

Asked and answered.

Given that the Democrat Party and the fake news media are just two elements of a single political apparatus these days, this and other episodes over the last week bring this question to mind:  What does the Democrat Party stand for going into the 2018 mid-term elections?

As far as I can tell, here is the current Democrat Platform:

  • They support Hamas, a group that has been listed as a terrorist organization by the U.S. State Department since the Clinton Administration, and hate Israel, our country’s most loyal ally for half a century;
  • They support MS-13;
  • They support the Crazy Little Fat Guy in North Korea over the American President;
  • They support the Mullahs in Iran over the American President;
  • They’re going to raise your taxes;
  • They favor impeaching the President;
  • They want to de-fund the military;
  • They want to repeal the 2nd Amendment;
  • They’re against freedom of speech;
  • They want to eliminate borders, and thus end U.S. sovereignty;
  • They want to give everyone a job in the government and free college, but have no plan how to fund either.

These are all positions that have been expressed by leaders of the Democrat Party in just the last week.  This is not a winning formula.

That vaunted “blue wave” is going to end up becoming just another Democrat “trail of tears.”

Just another day in it’s all falling apart for the Democrats America.

That is all.

Hey, Remember That Blue Wave? Yeah, it Ain’t Happening.

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Tired of all this #Winning yet? Part I – The President, First Lady, Vice President and Secretary of State all turned out to Andrews Air Force Base at 2:00 a.m. to welcome home Kim Dong Chul, Kim Hak Song and Tony Kim, three Americans who had been held as prisoners for years by the North Korean government.  Their release was a show of good faith by the Crazy Little Fat Guy, Kim Jong Un, in advance of next month’s face-to-face negotiation with President Trump related to the de-nuclearization of the Korean peninsula.

The sight of one of the men hugging Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, who had flown halfway across the world to secure their release earlier in the week, was enough to bring tears to the eyes of any thinking person.  Democrats and fake reporters were, of course, unmoved, given that these three men were released as the result of the efforts of President Trump, after having languished in a North Korean prison throughout much of the administration of media hero Barack Obama.

By the way, if you’re sitting there wondering why this kind of thing keeps happening under this President, when we never saw anything similar the previous 8 years, it’s because this President is trying.  It really is that simple.

Your news media in action!  Part I – The deranged lunatics at the New York Times, meanwhile, published a piece Wednesday morning lambasting Secretary Pompeo for being “AWOL” as President Trump announced he was ending U.S. participation in the horrible Iran deal.  Later in the day, after some no-doubt “anonymous source” (because that’s the only kind of sources the New York Times has anymore) informed the morons at the Times that Pompeo was actually rescuing a bunch of political prisoners, the fake newspaper published a piece that was actually positive about the prisoner release. What a dumpster fire.

Your news media in action!  Part II – Speaking of huge, raging dumpster fires, I give you NBC News.  Former Trump attorney Michael Cohen has been the subject of so much fake reporting by the Peacock Network that he felt the need to get on his Twitter account to try to shame the fake news operation into correcting some of his horrible reporting:

That’s right:  NBC News is so fake and lacking in any editorial standards whatsoever that it can’t even identify the correct guy named Michael Cohen before filing its reports.  I mean, dayum, people.

Your Democrats in action! – But the most disgusting spectacle of the day was, without question, watching as some of the very worst people on the face of the earth, like Kamala Harris, Mark Warner and Dianne Feinstein, questioned the nominee for CIA Director, Gina Haspel, about her “moral compass.”  My goodness.

Tired of all this #Winning yet?  Part II.  That Blue Wave is circling down the toilet. – Speaking of Democrats, that much-ballyhooed “Blue Wave” that all the Democrat operatives in the fake news media were telling you was an absolute certainty a few months ago has pretty much fallen off of even CNN’s fake news story rotation.  Maybe that’s because even CNN’s own congressional generic preference poll, which just four months ago claimed the Democrats led Republicans by a whopping 16 points, yesterday came in at just a 3 point Democrat lead, which happens to be within the fake poll’s margin of error.

The CNN result is pretty consistent with the other generic congressional polls, all of which have narrowed up substantially since the first of the year.  Which should come as no surprise to anyone.

I told you back in December that the whole “Blue Wave” thing was just wishful thinking on the part of the Democrats and their media support group.  I predicted then that as the tax cuts kicked into working peoples’ paychecks, the good economic growth news continued coming in, and other good things continued to happen, those numbers would narrow substantially.  I even predicted that the situation with North Korea, which at that time appeared to be a major crisis verging on a military conflict, would in fact be ultimately resolved on largely U.S. terms without a shot being fired.

Guess what’s about to happen?  The situation with North Korea is about to be resolved without a shot being fired.  Guess what will happen to those generic ballot polls when that happy result comes about?  The small Democrat lead will disappear entirely, and by August you’re going to be seeing polls showing that measure has moved into the GOP’s favor.  Hell, at this rate, you might start seeing such polls in June.

But that’s not all that’s about to happen in the coming weeks and months.  The Mueller investigation is about to come to a head, and will be ultimately resolved with no legitimate charges filed against the President.  Mueller may end up writing a report in which he tries to provide the Democrats some basis for an impeachment effort – which has been the goal of this “investigation” since day 1 – but that won’t matter because the Democrats aren’t going to win back control of the House in November.

“But wait, there’s more!”, to quote the late, great Billy Mays.  We’re also about to see the issuance of the final report from DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz, and the subsequent issuance of grand jury subpoenas and indictments targeting – guess who? – not the Trump Administration, but a bunch of Clinton and Obama loyalists.

Bottom line, the 2018 mid-terms will definitely be a “sea-change” election, but not the “blue wave” kind the fake news media was loudly touting a few months ago.  No, the “sea-change” in this campaign will be the massive shift that takes place in the generic congressional ballot polling between last December and this coming November.

And the beauty of all of this is that the Democrat Party leaders are so stupid and out of touch that they decided last year to discard anything resembling a policy agenda and hang their Party’s entire future on promoting hatred for Donald Trump.

Isn’t life great?

Just another day in that Blue Wave ain’t gonna happen America.

That is all.
