Democrats Prepare to Toss the DACA “Kids” Under the Bus One More Time

The all-knowing, all-seeing, omnipotent “global warming” can now change your personality.  No kidding.  So claim researchers at the Columbia Business School (why are researchers at a “business” school studying global warming?).   “As climate change continues across the world, we may also observe concomitant changes in human personality,” reads the study, published in the journal Nature on Tuesday.  Hey, it’s already working on me – every time I read an article about some fake study making some increasingly bizarre claim about the effects of “global warming”, it pisses me off that much more.

San Fran Nan is even more confused than normal today.  As I write this, she is now in the 7th hour of conducting what can only be termed a “filibuster” on the floor of the house, having been standing there reading stuff since mid-morning.  The trouble is, the filibuster rule only applies in the senate, where she has never been a member.  The creeping dementia she’s been displaying over the last several years has finally set in for good.  Sad!

By the way, in case you’re curious, what San Fran Nan is really doing is putting on a show for the DACA “kids” (average age:  26), because her party is about to toss them under the bus in the budget negotiations, so that they don’t get blamed for shutting down the government again.  Early this morning, Chuck Schumer and Mitch McConnell announced they’d reached an agreement to fund the government for the remainder of FY 2018 and through FY 2019, removing all the sequester caps in the process.

The deal includes half a trillion dollars in new military and domestic spending over those two years, so all the budget hawks in the House are going to hate it.  But the deal does NOT include any language on the DACA issue, which is going to throw the Democrats’ leftwing base into a frenzy of rage, yet again.  Pelosi and Schumer obviously made a deal with members of their caucus that she would conduct her fake “filibuster” for show on the floor of the House so that none of the Democrat members of the Senate would conduct a real filibuster and potentially kill this deal.

In the end, the Democrats are going to agree to this deal to get their hands on more domestic money they can buy votes with in exchange for a promise on a DACA vote next week.  Which, of course, means they are getting literally NOTHING, since McConnell and Speaker Paul Ryan already made that promise as a part of ending the 14% government shutdown that took place just a few weeks ago.

Pelosi and Schumer are betting that their voters are too stupid to remember that little reality.  Sadly, they’re probably right.

The one chink in the armor on this deal is whether the President will sign it when it comes to his desk.  He’s made it very clear he wants a comprehensive deal on immigration issues included in any budget deal, and that is obviously not a part of the Schumer/McConnell deal.  On the other hand, the deal does include most of the increased military spending Defense Secretary Mattis has asked for, and President Trump probably has little real objection to the increases in domestic spending that it includes.

It also seems unlikely that the President would be at all enthusiastic about having a vote on a “clean” DACA bill, given that that issue is his real leverage in getting concessions out of the Democrats on border security and other immigration reforms.  Absent that leverage, none of those reforms will happen.  Period.  Also, since the deal would well and truly bust the budget in a huge way, it would also likely be the death knell for any unfunded infrastructure plan Mr. Trump has stated he wants to pursue.

His campaign promises on immigration, more than any other factor, is what got Donald Trump elected.  And poll after poll shows strong majorities of Americans supporting the President’s position on those issues.  Is he willing to just let that all go in order to get two years of increased military spending?  Because that’s what this deal boils down to for him, and he knows that better than anyone.

The next 48 hours are going to be a very consequential time for our country.

That is all.

[NOTE:  A few minutes after this piece was posted, President Trump tweeted the following:  “The Budget Agreement today is so important for our great Military. It ends the dangerous sequester and gives Secretary Mattis what he needs to keep America Great. Republicans and Democrats must support our troops and support this Bill!”  Obviously, the President intends to sign the bill if it comes to his desk.  Also, Speaker Ryan issued a statement promising a vote in the coming weeks on “immigration reforms,” but not on a “clean” DACA bill that Pelosi says she wants.  Thus, Trump can sign this budget bill and still retain his leverage in immigration negotiations.  Cool.]

Sunday Scattershooting While Wondering Whatever Happened to That Delightful Frederica Wilson?

Today’s Campaign Update

  • Sunday’s Required Reading – The Daily Caller has a great piece this morning by Michael Bastach, chronicling many of the innumerable “the end is near” predictions made over the last 30 years by the frauds in the Global Warming alarmist community.  It’s a great read, and a good reminder of just how wrong all these projections have been.  Of course, the point of the Global Warming scam is not to be right, it is to frighten the public into accepting collectivist political policies as the only “solution” to a problem that most likely doesn’t exist.  Take the 10 minutes necessary to read this piece – you’ll be glad you did, and smarter, too.
  • Speaking of collectivists running scams on the public, the globalists who still infest the U.S. State Department like the cockroaches in a 30 year-old single-wide have been caught attempting to influence Hungary’s elections.  The U.S. will pour $700,000 into that country’s media in an effort to defeat Hungarian PM Victor Orban, who is opposed to the open borders policies that are in the process of destroying the native cultures in Germany, France and other European Union countries.  So, to be clear, the same globalists who have been screaming for a year about Russia’s alleged efforts to influence the 2016 U.S. elections have no problem at all doing it to other countries.  But then, we already knew that, didn’t we?
  • Hey, let’s tie the Global Warming scam to the sexual harassment frenzy while we’re at it – John Phillips, writing in the Orange County Register, wonders aloud how it is that Al Gore, the Capo di tutti capi of all Global Warming scammers, has managed to escape scrutiny in the ongoing sexual assault feeding frenzy?  It’s a great question, given that Mr. Gore has been publicly accused several times of improper sexual behavior with women.  That’s a real ‘inconvenient truth’ if there ever was one, huh?
  • Perhaps, as Professor of Sexual Violence Wendy Murphy detailed back in 2010, Honest Al gets a pass because he’s just sooooo darn green, an affliction that also infests about 99% of the national news media at this point.  But it does seem odd that, even as so many Bill Clinton media shills are finding it convenient to finally condemn him after all these years, Mr. Gore continues to just skate by, flying under the radar, as it were.  It hardly seems fair.
  • Getting tired of all this winning yet? – Don Surber celebrates the possibility that President Donald Trump (I never get tired of typing those words) may be able to appoint twice as many judges to the federal bench by the end of 2018 than Barack Obama did during his entire eight years in office.  We can thank the thankfully gone Harry Reid and his idiotic decision to kill the use of the filibuster in the judicial confirmation process, along with a long-awaited plan to expand the federal judiciary for this happy potential reality.
  • Or maybe it’s because of the simple fact that sexual harassment and abuse has been running rampant in Hollywood and the liberal national culture at large for far too long, and people got fed up with it. – Columnist David Brooks, who pretends to be a ‘conservative’ for the NYTimes and PBS, told his PBS co-host Judy Woodruff on Friday that he believes the wave of sexual abuse allegations is because of a public reaction to…wait for it…DONALD TRUMP.  Holy cow.
  • Here’s a direct quote:   “I think the reaction to Trump is part of the deal here. And we’ve talked about Trump maybe polluting our national culture, but it could be the reaction to Trump is also making us hypersensitive and making us want to correct the national culture. And so, you could be a — see a reaction to — the Trump wave, I think, has lowered norms and standards, but a lot of people would say, ‘No, we’re not happy with this, we’re going to raise norms and standards.’ ”  Only a liberal pretending to be a conservative could engage in such twisted leaps of logic.
  • Finally, Former FBI Director James Comey, who has recently begun using his Twitter account all too frequently, issued the following Tweet on Saturday:  “‘Our Liberty depends on freedom of the press, and that cannot be limited without being lost.’ – Thomas Jefferson, Jan. 28, 1786.”  For the record, James Comey was FBI Director when Fox News reporter James Rosen was wire-tapped by that corrupt agency.  Just sayin’.

Just another day in frauds, frauds, everywhere America.

That is all.

Kathleen Parker Proves The Moore Campaign Right About The Washington Post

Today’s Campaign Update

  • The reliable Democrat shills at the Associated Press have a lovely puff piece out this morning on Sen. Al Franken’s growing groping scandal.  The piece, titled “Franken’s rising political star obscured by accusations”, portrays the SNL refugee as an intrepid pursuer of truth, justice and the leftist way, all the while putting his serial degrading and groping of women in the best light possible.
  • My favorite part is the following paragraph:  “It’s always a great disappointment when leaders you like and admire do bad stuff,” said Mike Lux, a liberal Democratic consultant. He said it was premature to say how the allegations would affect Franken’s career. But, Lux added, “If more incidents come to light, he’s got a real problem.”  So, just so we’re keeping score here, four gropes and abuses of women is ok for a Democrat Senator.  But any more than that, why, he’s got a problem.  Holy cow.
  • So good of you to finally point that out. – Meanwhile, the #NeverTrump nitwits who run the National Review published a piece by Deroy Murdock on Thanksgiving Day that contains unbridled praise of …wait for it…DONALD TRUMP!  I kid you not, Mr. Murdock, who is a contributing editor for TNR, has awakened to the fact that, as he puts it, “The Never Trump faction still claims that the president of the United States “is no conservative.” And yet, with rare deviations (such as free trade), he spends nearly every day implementing the conservative agenda.”  Ahem.  Some of us have been telling you guys this for ten months now.  Welcome to the party, pal.
  • The Award for The Most Absurd Global Warming Claim of the Month goes to a group of chemists at the UK’s universities of Reading, Bristol and Bath, who issued a report this week claiming that frying foods is now causing the earth to heat up.  I swear I don’t make this stuff up.  Who could?
  • It’s a dirty job, but somebody’s gotta do it. – In case you still harbor reservations about how much you love the job Sarah Huckabee Sanders is doing as White House Press Secretary, read this column from Kathleen Parker at the Washington Post, and you’ll lose all doubt.  Ms. Parker, who used to pretend to be a conservative but now just spends her column space endlessly whining about the Trump presidency, complains that Ms. Sanders “humiliates the media on a daily basis.”  Ummmmm…yeah, so?  Is there a point here?
  • Ms. Parker’s big complaint – her last straw with Ms. Sanders, apparently – was that Sanders began her press briefing on Wednesday by – gasp! – asking various members of the press corps to talk about one thing for which they are actually thankful.  It seems that, in Parker’s mind, asking this band of eternal grumps to say one positive thing about anything amounts to “humiliating” them.  “Yet again, she controlled the crowd, though this time by candy-coating her usual condescension with faux fellowship,” Parker wrote.  “I’m thankful I wasn’t in the room.”  Alrighty, then.
  • But Parker wasn’t done, oh, no, she wasn’t:  “For a press secretary to require professional journalists to essentially beg for their supper, surrendering their adversarial posture like a dog commanded to Drop The Bone, is an infantilizing tactic.  The effect is to neutralize the opposition.”
  • First of all, what “professional journalists” would those be?  The White House press corps is nothing but the single biggest collection of fake journalists on the planet.  There isn’t a real journalist among this gaggle of primping, preening asshats.
  • Second, how does asking any person to talk about one positive thing in their life “infantilize” them?  If the price of adulthood is chronic grumpiness, someone failed to point that out to about 99% of the people on this planet.  Kathleen Parker, though, obviously got the memo.
  • Third, on that part about “surrendering their adversarial posture like a dog commanded to Drop The Bone,” well, this particular pack of dogs dropped those bones for eight long, disgusting Obama years that amounted to a disgrace to the entire profession of journalism.  So spare us that nonsense, Kathy.
  • On Wednesday, a spokesman for the Roy Moore campaign referred to the Washington Post as a “worthless piece of crap.”  Ms. Parker’s column presents irrefutable proof of the accuracy of that assessment.

Just another day in worthless crap journalism America.

That is all.

All Fake News, All The Time: This Is CNN

Today’s Campaign Update 

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

  • Jim Acosta voids his bladder at yet another White House Press Briefing, hilarity ensues. –  The Fake News Network’s petulant and preening Jim Acosta provided yet another prime example of why he and CNN should be banned from future White House press briefings yesterday.  As Senior Policy Adviser Stephen Miller was discussing the details of the Raise Act, a piece of legislation that would modify the terms of legal immigration into the U.S., Acosta, without being called upon, constantly interrupted the speaker and engaged him in a debate in which he implied that the poem on the Statue of Liberty is the law of the land, and claimed that implementing a preference for English-speaking immigrants would limit legal immigration to “those from Britain and Australia.”  Acosta wasn’t even fazed when Miller correctly point out that English is the main language spoken in more than 60 nations around the world, and that the poem has no legal gravitas.  Naturally, Acosta appeared on CNN after the press conference and declared victory.  No one else gave him that credit.
  • Their next study will prove Donald Trump has poopy pants. – The Center For American Progress (CAP) announced on Wednesday that it will issue a report today that proves – PROVES, I say – that the Trump Campaign “colluded” with the Russians to interfere with the U.S. election process in 2016.  Fake news outlets Buzzfeed and The Hill reported on the announcement, identifying CAP only as “a progressive think tank.”  What neither of those two fake outlets tell their readers is that CAP was in fact founded by… wait for it…JOHN PODESTA, the goat-sacrificing campaign manager for Hillary Clinton, and that Mr. Podesta remains active in the group’s leadership today.  Fake News at its finest.
  • That make perfect sense, since he’s a been Democrat in practice since at least 2001. – Qunnipiac released a poll on Wednesday that finds that the public approval rating for Senator From the News Media John McCain is 35% higher among his natural Democrat base than it is among Republicans.  What else is there to say about that?
  • Speaking of the title of Senator From the News Media, the junior Senator from Arizona, Jeff Flake, is obviously seeking to succeed his fellow Arizonan in that role.  Flake, a fervent adherent to the idiotic #NeverTrump crowd, has been all over the fake news media this week, shamelessly hawking his new anti-Trump book titled “Conscience of a Conservative.”  Given the book’s copy-cat title, it was perhaps inevitable that Brent Bozell, Jr., the son of the man who was Barry Goldwater’s ghost writer of the huge 1964 best-seller of the same name, would strenuously object to the use of that same title for a book written by a Senator who has a very mixed record of conservatism at best.  “Jeff Flake is not a conservative, nor does he have a conscience,” Mr. Bozell told anyone who would listen.  All of which leads to the inevitable question:  What do the voters in Arizona think about when they go to the polls?  Really, are these two guys the best the state has to offer?  Sad!
  • Hey, it’s not just the media that’s fake – the temperature record is fake, too. – The great James Delingpole reports that Australia’s Bureau of Meteorology has been caught red-handed faking that country’s temperature records in an effort to “prove” the existence of global warming.  The BOM has been systematically erasing record low temperatures, or simply entering them into the record at higher readings than their thermometers actually showed.  The BOM has good company in this endeavor:  Here in the U.S., NASA and NOAA have been systematically “revising” the global temperature records they keep upwards since at least 2010, in an effort to justify the Obama regime’s heavy-handed regulatory actions.  The difference between the two countries is that the Australian news media has actually shamed the people at BOM into going about correcting their defrauded records, while the U.S. fake news media has studiously ignored the scandal.  Because that’s what progressive Democrats with press passes do.

Just another day in Fake News Media America.

That is all.

Today’s Campaign Update (Because The Campaign Never Ends) – 3.16.2017

  • The Poster Child for congressional term limits goes completely off the rails.: Senator From the News Media John McCain went all “hey you kids, get off my lawn!” on Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul on Wednesday, accusing Sen. Paul of “working for Vladimir Putin” on the floor of the Senate.  Sen. McCain’s latest crotchety temper tantrum came over a vote about letting Montenegro join NATO, a move to which Sen. Paul objects because he knows the U.S. will end up paying most of what the tiny country should pay to be in the organization.  Sen. McCain apparently believes the mighty armed forces of Montenegro – which consist of 3 guys carrying M-1 carbines – are all that stand between the free world and domination by the all-powerful Russian dictator.  Sadly, the voters of Arizona chose just last November to give the 80 year-old McCain yet another 6 year free pass to pursue his obvious goal of involving the U.S. in a shooting war with Russia.
  • That’s some fast typing right there.: An activist federal judge in Hawaii issued a stay on enforcement of President Trump’s latest temporary travel ban, despite the President’s clear and unambiguous authority to restrict immigration into the U.S. on any basis he sees fit.  Demonstrating the utter lack of any integrity whatsoever in his action, the judge issued a 43 page decision within 2 hours of hearing oral arguments in the case.  Apparently, he just happened to be carrying around a pre-written decision for exactly this case in the pocket of his robe.  The federal judiciary is now filled with blatant seditionists.
  • They found common ground at a truck stop in Shreveport.:  Texas Congressmen Will Hurd (R) and Beto O’Rourke (D) found themselves stranded at the San Antonio airport on Tuesday, their flight to DC having been cancelled by the “blizzard” that didn’t actually show up.  They decided to rent a car and make the 30 hour drive together, and live-streamed the whole thing on Facebook.  Not sure why I’m including this here, other than it’s pretty damn cool.
  • Is there nothing “global warming” cannot do?:  A University of New Hampshire professor – no doubt funded by a federal grant – has come up with a new angle on global warming alarmism.  She released a report yesterday predicting that the all-knowing, all-powerful “global warming” is shrinking mammals, and will soon cause horses to be no bigger can your average house cat.  Presumably “global warming” will also result in “fire and brimstone raining down from the sky.  Forty years of darkness!  Earthquakes, volcanoes…the dead rising from the grave!  Human sacrifice, dogs and cats living together…mass hysteria!”
  • His home is scheduled for a Soros-funded fire-bombing this Saturday.:  74 year-old radio talk show host Michael Savage just released a book about the Trump presidency titled “Trump’s War:  The Battle For America”.  Naturally, he was beaten up by a deranged social justice warrior at an Italian restaurant Tuesday night.  This is what Democrats refer to as “dialogue”.

Just another day in Trump Derangement Syndrome America.

Today’s Campaign Update (Because The Campaign Never Ends) – 3.14.2017

  • Wooing practice begins at 9:00 sharp, Madam Chancellor.:  The blizzard bearing down on Washington DC caused German Chancellor Angela Merkel, whose open borders policies are in the process of utterly destroying her country’s native culture, to postpone her planned meeting with President Trump today.  But whenever they do meet, Der Spiegel reports that the Chancellor is “planning woo Trump, rather than confront him” over his plans to enforce America’s immigration laws.  Somehow, I don’t think Ms. Merkel will find a very receptive audience for this strategy.  Might be best to postpone this meeting until a better approach can be devised.  Like invading Poland, for example.
  • MSNBC will no doubt soon be offering him his own prime time talk show.:  The irresponsible nitwits who run Austin’s SXSW drunk-and-traffic-fest provided a platform for the debut of an absurdly plotted “documentary” by a Michael Moore disciple named Jason Pollock, which claims to reveal ‘new evidence’ in the Michael Brown case.  Despite the easily-discerned fact the film is an abject work of fiction that reveals nothing but the dishonesty of the filmmaker and incredible gullibility of its audience, riots very predictably broke out in Ferguson, MO.  This gave the talking heads at CNN something to talk about other than President Trump, so I guess we should be grateful for that.
  • Yes, in the same sense that a lion loves a zebra.:  Speaking of SXSW, the comical fake editor of the NY Times, Dean Baquet, told an audience there that President Trump “actually loves the New York Times.”  Such fake hubris is fake unbecoming of you, Mr. fake editor.
  • How many different positions will James Comey take on this?  The over/under is currently 3.:  Snoop Dog released a video in which he pretends to shoot President Trump.  Predictably, there is no outrage coming from the fake news media in response.  Imagine how Martha Raddatz or Jake Tapper would have responded if a high-profile artist had released such a video when Barack Obama was President.  Your fake news media in action.
  • Last week they were all claiming the then-unseasonably warm temperatures were due to “global warming.”:  A major blizzard blew into the northeastern seaboard last night, and will blanket everywhere from Washington, DC through Maine with a major late-season snow.  Climate frauds everywhere are blaming this very common periodic occurrence on…wait for it…wait for it… “climate change”.  Because that’s what climate frauds do.
  • Yes, because the Tea Party uprising was a truly organic occurrence, and everything the left is doing is utterly fake.  See the difference here?:  The interminably dense fake journalists who inhabit Nate Silver’s 538.c0m blog published an hilariously dimwitted piece titled, “The Left Might Have a Hard Time Replicating The Tea Party’s Success”.  You don’t say….

Just another day in Fake News Media America.

That is all.
