Any Day Ben Rhodes is Left Speechless is a Good Day for America

  • A new HBO Film that fake-documents the last year of the Obama Administration will premier on Jan. 19.  The Daily Caller reports this morning that the film contains a scene in which ex-UN Ambassador and serial unmasker Samantha Power hosts an Election Night “female empowerment” party for women diplomats from all over the world to celebrate the impending victory by the Pantsuit Princess.  “I thought what an amazing night for them. I mean, that’s what America represents to the world, when a glass ceiling is shattered in our country, it creates a whole new sense of possibility for people everywhere,” Power says.  Things didn’t turn out quite the way Ms. Power wanted, and she and her party guests went to bed sad.
  • In the film, Obama propagandist Ben Rhodes recounts how he was so stunned by the election results that he couldn’t use his words:  “I am usually not without thoughts and words. But you know, I think—I kept trying—beginning to say something.”  What’s the matter – cat got your tongue?
  • But of course, it wasn’t a cat who had the wordy Mr. Rhodes tongue.  More likely, it was the realization that all the efforts by so many Obama evil minions to try to ensure victory for the Fainting Felon had gone astray, and that there would be consequences to be paid for those efforts.
  • On Friday, the Inspector General’s office of the Department of Justice began the process of releasing the 1.2 million supporting documents related to its investigation of the election campaign-related activities of various DOJ/FBI employees, a group that I’ve referred to as the Deep State Cabal.  As the first step in that process, the OIG released several hundred thousand documents to the members of the House Intelligence Committee for viewing.
  • This release came a week after DOJ had released the remainder of its documents related to the fake investigation of the Fainting Felon’s illegal email server, an investigation that has now been reopened at the order of Attorney General Jeff Sessions.  It came just a few days after DOJ had announced the first indictment related to the Uranium One scandal, and on the heels of announcements that DOJ was pursuing active investigations into Uranium One, the activities of the Clinton Foundation while the Pantsuit Princess served as Secretary of State, and the Project Cassandra scandal.
  • Mr. Rhodes and Ms. Power were left so distraught on Election Night 14 months ago because they knew this day would come.  They, and all the participants in the Deep State Cabal had bet everything on a huge win by their Cackling Candidate.  Had she won, all of the Cabal’s crimes against the country would have been covered up and shunted off to the dustbin of history.  That was the plan – it was going to work, it had to work, because no one thought to put in place a contingency plan for failure.
  • But it didn’t work.  There are many reasons why, one of which is that Admiral Mike Rogers, Director of the National Security Agency, intervened.  The Cabal had begun its spying activities on the Trump Campaign in early 2016 via the use of hundreds of “unmasking requests” under Section 702 of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA).  Rogers became aware of this unusually high number of such requests in April 2016, traced them to their source and discovered that a subcontractor to the FBI had been data mining the NSA Signals Intelligence database, the database that logs every communication made by every American every day.
  • Rogers shut this practice down, and the Cabal was forced to scramble to devise another means of continuing its spying on the Trump Campaign.  We now know that this led to the DNC and Clinton Campaign’s decision to spend millions of dollars funding the compiling – in coordination with Russian agents – of the fake Trump Dossier, and that Dossier ended up at James Comey’s FBI in early summer 2016.  We know that, after obtaining that Dossier made up of wild accusations that Trump was some sort of Russian agent, the FBI was able to obtain a FISA warrant to reactivate its spying activities on the Trump Campaign, and that those spying activities continued after the election on the Trump Transition Team, which had its offices in Trump Tower.
  • On November 17, Admiral Rogers made what the fake news media called a “surprise visit” to Trump Tower and met with President-elect Trump and his team.  The very next day, on November 18, Trump announced he was moving his transition team’s headquarters to the Trump National Golf Club in Bedminister, New Jersey. This was most likely not a coincidence.
  • On January 20, 2017, Trump is sworn into office.  A few weeks later, Jeff Sessions is sworn in as Attorney General, and one of the first actions he takes is to order DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz to investigate the Cabal.  Rather than initiate an immediate purge of all the bad actors, the decision was apparently made to keep the enemies closer instead, and catch them in the act.
  • That year-long process has now almost reached its conclusion.  It is likely that the final report has gone to AG Sessions for review and approval, which is would explain why the process of rolling out the supporting documentation to relevant congressional committees has begun.
  • Thanks to the recent deal made between Chairman Devin Nunes and Deputy AG Rod Rosenstein, various participants in the Cabal will be testifying before the House Intel Committee and probably other committees in the coming weeks.  It is very unlikely we will see that final report until all that testimony has been completed, for obvious reasons.
  • But it’s coming soon, and when it does, Ben Rhodes may find himself left speechless once again, and Ms. Power won’t be hosting any celebrations.
Just another day in keeping your enemies close America.
That is all.

Trey Gowdy Frees Up Time To Focus On The Storm To Come

  • For about half an hour on Saturday, the people in Hawaii thought their state was under nuclear attack.  Isn’t that lovely.  What turned out to be a false message was sent out by the Hawaii Emergency Alert Agency (HEAA) because “someone pushed the wrong button,”, according to the Agency’s head, Vern Miyagi.  That’s a hell of a wrong button to push, Vern.
  • So for 30 minutes everyone in the Islands panicked, for good reason.  People were screaming, crying, shoving babies into storm drains, dogs and cats living together, mass hysteria!  And then ol’ Vern there figured out that one of his employees – probably some guy named Carl or Hank or Boomhauer, had just pushed the wrong magic button, so he pushed the other magic button and everyone went back to surfing and roasting pigs in the sand.
  • This really isn’t funny, though, is it?  Hey, maybe the folks at HEAA might want to think about putting a safety mechanism on that magic button, so that Carl or Hank or Boomhauer might have to actually think twice before it gets pushed.  You know, like we do on guns.  That’s the thing to do, tellya whut.
  • Trey Gowdy, Congressman from South Carolina, resigned from the House Ethics Committee on Saturday, and everyone in the fake news media typically missed the real story here.  Gowdy, who sits on four committees and chairs House Oversight and Government Reform, cited a “heavy work load” in making his announcement, and who can blame him?  But that’s not the real story here – or at least not the full one.
  • Think about which other committees Gowdy sits on addition to the two mentioned above:  Judiciary and Intelligence.  These are two of the six congressional committees that have spent the last year investigating the Democrat/media Russia Collusion fantasy.  Those investigations started with a focus on allegations that the Trump campaign and transition team “colluded” with some unidentified “Russians” to influence the 2016 election outcome, but in the process of doing that, realized that the only collusion with the Russians going on during that campaign was perpetrated by the Clinton Campaign and the DNC.
  • To understand what Gowdy is doing here in freeing up some of his time, first think about what happened at the end of last week.  That Friday, thanks to the tireless efforts of Chairman Devin Nunes, the members of the House Intelligence Committee gained access to all the FBI/DOJ documents related to the fake Trump Dossier.  As I mentioned on Wednesday, none of the information in those documents has leaked to CNN or anyone else in the fake news media, which means there is no good news in them for the Democrats.
  • Now, think ahead to what is supposed to happen at some point this week:  The long-anticipated special report from DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz should be finally released.  Horowitz has now spent a full year investigating the actions of FBI and DOJ officials related to Uranium One, the Clinton email scandal, the fake Trump Dossier, and Russia collusion allegations.
  • Also consider that just this past week, DOJ issued its first indictment related to Uranium One, an indictment that was of course ignored by the fake news media as it focused on presidential cursing.  Because that’s what the fake news media is there to do.
  • The IG has given the House Intel Committee a preview by releasing some of its documentation in recent weeks.  Also keep in mind the facts that, over the last three weeks, Attorney General Sessions announced the re-opening of DOJ investigations into Uranium One and the Clinton Crime Family Fake Foundation, and Nunes secured agreements from DOJ to force members of the Deep State Cabal to testify before that committee.  Those witnesses are scheduled to start appearing before the committee as soon as this week.
  • What all this means is there’s a storm coming to Washington, DC.  So if you think Rep. Gowdy resigned his seat on House Ethics just because he wants to spend more time with his family, think again.  The real story – which we never seem to get from the fake news media – is most likely that he wanted to free up more of his time so he can spend it where the action is about to be.
Just another day in The Storm is Coming to Washington America.
That is all.

Saturday Trump Roundup – All The #Winning That’s Fit To Print

 

  • Tired of all this Winning yet?  Part I – For the 90th time since Election Day 2016, the Dow Jones Industrial Index closed at an all-time record high on Friday, and all other stock indeces did the same.  Do you really care that much about the President’s potty mouth?
  • Tired of all this Winning yet?  Part II – Retailers recorded the strongest holiday season sales in a decade.  Sales for November and December were up 5.5% over 2016.  Somewhere, Barack Obama’s talking points monkeys are trying to find a way for their guy to take credit.
  • Tired of all this Winning yet?  Part III – The IRS reported late Thursday that fully 90% of workers in the U.S. will see more take-home money in their paychecks as soon as February.  This is what San Fran Nan Pelosi refers to as “Armageddon.”
  • Tired of all this Winning yet?  Part IV – President Trump’s medical examination on Friday went “exceptionally well,” per the doctor in charge.  This is not really any surprise, but it is just one more nail in the coffin of the “Trump isn’t fit to hold the office” nonsense being pushed by the fake news media and the Democrats.
  • Tired of all this Winning yet?  Part V – Records show that the Yale psychiatry professor who unethically “diagnosed” the President as being mentally unstable doesn’t even have a license to practice.   Perhaps someone should diagnose her.
  • Where in the world is Hillary Clinton? Day 12. – Yes, friends, we are 12 days into 2018, and have still not heard a single public utterance from the Pantsuit Princess.  Oh, her Twitter account did issue a statement on the President’s “shithole” remark, but the Coughing Crook probably has a staff of half a dozen flunkies to man her Twitter feed.
  • I’m talking about actual words – you know, talking.  In public.  Not a word from the Fainting Felon, a dozen days into the year?  This is not normal.  Not normal at all.  Come to think of it, we haven’t seen anything out of Slick Willie either.  All year long.  Something’s up.  Wonder what it might be?
  • Speaking of Slick Willie, Elon Musk obviously learned a thing or two from him about public prevarication.  The headline at the Daily Caller this morning reads “Elon Musk Admits He Attended Sex Party, But That None Of The Activities Happened While He Was There”.   Sounds just like “Bill Clinton Admits To Smoking Pot, But Swears He Did Not Inhale”.  Slick must have lent Elon his old talking points monkeys.
  • Speaking of the Pantsuit Princess, New York Magazine revealed tape of abusive MSNBC fake host Chris Matthews – who somehow still has a job despite being revealed as a textbook harasser – talking about giving the Coughing Crook a “Bill Cosby pill” prior to interviewing her during the 2016 campaign.  ummmmm…that’s just gross.
  • The leftist UK Guardian ran a story on Friday titled “Is deep-red Texas ready for a gay Latina Democrat? Lupe Valdez thinks so”.  Ummm, no.  Probably not.  But it’s not because Ms. Valdez – who has led an incredibly admirable life that includes serving the country in the U.S. Army Reserve, and at the Department of Homeland Security before becoming Police Chief for the city of Dallas – is gay or Latina.  It’s because she’s in favor of abortion on demand, and she’s a Democrat in a state that hasn’t elected a Democrat to a statewide office since 1994.  No amount of wishful thinking on the part of the Texas Democrat Party or the fake news media is going to change that.  You don’t have to believe me – just ask Wendy Davis.
  • Paul Mirengoff has an excellent piece this morning at Powerline titled “Playing the Race Card on Immigration.”  You can read it for yourself – I highly recommend it – but I especially liked the closing line:  “It is cynical for Democrats and anti-Trumpers to play the race card in what is a legitimate policy dispute about immigration.”  Well, sure it is.  But playing the race card is all they got.
  • Finally, for all the Bernie Sanders fans out there, Daily Wire has a great piece this morning detailing the inevitable end game of Sanders’ socialist/communist policies that is playing itself out right now in Venezuela.  The headline reads “SOCIALIST PARADISE: Several Dead, 15 Injured In Fight For Food In Venezuela”.  Read the whole thing.  Seriously, just read it – it’ll do you good.  You might even learn something.
Just another day in Donald Trump just keeps Winning America.
That is all.

America Enters Its First “Shithole Countries” News Cycle

[Warning:  This is the first PG-13 version of Today’s Campaign Update.  Today’s Campaign Update will return to its traditional PG format tomorrow.]

  • Me and Rush, tight as ticks. – I caught Rush Limbaugh’s opening segment the last two days, and I’m beginning to think he’s reading my Daily Campaign Updates during his daily show prep. If you listen to the first 8 minutes of his show the last two days and compare that to what I wrote, there’s a lot of not just the same points, but a lot of exact wording being used.  I’m cool with that, Rush.  But give me a shout out sometime, ok?  Thanks.
  • You just cannot make this stuff up. – USA Today reported on Thursday that many radical “women’s” advocates are ditching their pink pussyhats.  Why?  Oh, you’ll never guess why.  Go ahead, guess.  Nope, try again.  Nope.  Ok, here’s the answer:  They’re ditching their pussy hats because, and I’m quoting here, “the pink pussyhat excludes and is offensive to transgender women and gender non-binary people who don’t have typical female genitalia and to women of color because their genitals are more likely to be brown than pink.”  There are a million things – literally – I could say about this, but in the interest of decorum, I will just leave it at that.
  • Terminally un-funny comic and notorious drunk Chelsea Handler demonstrated yet again what a perfect spokeswoman she is for the progressive left on Wednesday by accusing – in the most graphic language possible – U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham of being a closeted homosexual on her Twitter account.  Senator Graham, a lifelong bachelor, has steadfastly denied this claim repeatedly during his political career.  Remember when  progressives were the tolerant ones?  Or at least put up the pretense of being so?  Yeah, good times…
  • Ok, so, we are well in to the “shithole countries” news cycle, in which everyone in the fake news media goes berserk over a comment made in what was supposed to be a closed meeting by the President of the United States.  I won’t defend that language, which is completely inappropriate for any U.S. president to use about other countries.  Nor will I defend the President’s timing, which steps all over his message on immigration and destroyed the narrative of what was otherwise an extremely positive day for his immigration policies.  But I will defend the sentiment:  We simply need a smarter immigration policy for our country.
  • We should be – as our country has done throughout most of its history – focused on bringing in people who can actually contribute to our society in meaningful ways, and who wish to assimilate into our society.  We have spent the last 50 years under an immigration policy designed to favor immigrants who have no interest in assimilating into U.S. society, simply because such immigrants are more likely to vote Democrat.  The Democrat Party wants a Balkanized country, a divided America, because a divided country favors its electoral politics.  Simple as that.
  • But even Democrats weren’t always as interested in dividing America along racial and ethnic lines.  In pushing his 1965 immigration bill, Ted Kennedy said , “[the bill] will not inundate America with immigrants from any one country or area, or the most populated and deprived nations of Africa and Asia.”  That’s 52 years ago, of course, but YouTube is full of videos of Democrat luminaries like Chuck Schumer, the Pantsuit Princess and Harry Reid expounding on the need to protect our borders, send “illegal aliens” (yes, as recently as 9 years ago, Schumer used that term in the well of the Senate) back to their home countries, and promote policies that encourage new legal immigrants to learn English and assimilate into American society.  Yeah, good times…good times…
  • All the “shithole countries” talk aside, all of you Trump supporters who spend too much time listening to professional rabble rousers like Ann Coulter and #nevertrumpists who were warning you that the President was about to sell the country out by agreeing to amnesty with no border protections should have been breathing sighs of relief at day’s end on Thursday.  President Trump’s frustrated remark came in a meeting with several pro-amnesty senators who believed they had just the deal for him:  a deal that would provide the DREAMers a 10-15 year path to citizenship, modify (but not eliminate) chain migration, provide a down payment on border security measures without full funding, and modify (but not eliminate) the immigration lottery system, the continuation of which was what led to Mr. Trump becoming so irritated.
  • That was a classic Washington DC compromise deal, a conglomeration of counterproductive half-measures in which everyone involved would get part, but not all of what they wanted, and could have all declared “victory”.  President Trump turned it down flat, because it was a lousy deal for the country, and because it would have violated his campaign promises on immigration.  Make no mistake:  there is a deal to be made here, and it is obvious.  That deal is that the DREAMers get immediate legal status with a path to citizenship; the border wall/enhanced security gets fully funded; chain migration ends; and the immigration lottery goes away over time.  That’s the deal the President will accept, and it is completely consistent with his campaign promises.
  • Honestly, folks, how many of those campaign promises must this man keep to you before you all start showing a little faith in him?

Just another day in “shithole countries” America.

That is all.

The World Keeps Closing in on the Deep State Cabal

  • Oprah’s going to regret ever having given that speech. – Harvey Weinstein’s best pal for 20 years now finds herself getting just a small taste of what her carefully-constructed facade will be subjected to if she really does attempt to mount a run for the presidency.  She has now been irrevocably exposed as one of Weinstein’s closest confidants over the last two decades, her history of pushing conspiracies on her TV show is being revisited, her promotion of a facial cream made partially from babies’ foreskins is being revisited, and even her oft-told back story of having grown up in abject squalor is being challenged by people who knew her during her childhood.
  • Even the singer Seal lashed out at her on Wednesday, pointing out the likelihood that she knew about Weinstein’s serial abuse of women for years and did nothing about it, saying she’s been “part of the problem for years”.  This is just a small, small taste of what’s to come, Oprah.  It’s not something that giving away gift bags or even cars to everybody will stop.  You sure you want to be president?
  • Speaking of Harvey Weinstein, the monster himself got punched out Tuesday night by a fellow diner at a swanky joint in Scottsdale, AZ.  Nobody on the face of the earth felt bad for him, except maybe Oprah and Meryl Streep.
  • Sen. Dianne “Sneaky” Feinstein, now concerned that she may have violated laws by releasing the transcript of closed testimony by Fusion GPS Founder Glenn Simpson, is now blaming a “bad cold” for slowing her already puny mental faculties as the reason she made that decision.  That hilariously lame and obviously false rationalization comes after she let slip in an answer to a reporter that she “was pressured” by some unnamed entity to make the unilateral decision to put the transcript out in public over the wishes of Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley.  Feinstein later said she “misspoke” when she said that, but of course, Democrats always “misspeak” whenever the truth accidentally escapes their lips.
  • The most likely truth here, of course, is that Sen. Feinstein released Simpson’s testimony in order to provide a head’s up to the various FBI and DOJ participants in the Deep State cabal, like Peter Strzok, Bruce Ohr, Lisa Page, Bill Priestap, James Baker, Andrew McCabe and others who will be offering testimony before various congressional committees in the coming days.  Given that the fake Trump Dossier compiled by Fusion GPS will be a topic of questioning in these hearings, the Democrats obviously want all these skunks and snakes to be able to properly get their stories straight.  Sneaky Dianne’s act of blatant sedition here is just one more reason why our Sleepy Attorney General, Jeff Sessions, needs to get off his marijuana-obsessed butt and appoint another special counsel to investigate the Cabal’s activities.
  • As Fox News reported on Tuesday, the members of the House Intelligence Committee got their long-sought access to all FBI/DOJ documents related to their use of the Trump Dossier.  Last Friday, every committee member was allowed to view the documents and take notes, which is standard procedure with highly classified information such as this.  Given that this included Democrat Rep. Adam Schiff, and none of the information contained in those documents has been leaked to CNN as we sit here six days later, we can assume the documents do not contain good news for the Democrats.  Rep. Schiff generally works on a much quicker time frame than this.
  • Speaking of collusion with the Russians, where in the world is Hillary Clinton?  Here we are, 11 days into the new year, and we have yet to hear a single public utterance from the Pantsuit Princess.  Indeed, if you do a Google news search on her name, the only stories you get back about her, other than casual mentions by third parties, are reports on the fire that broke out at her home in Chappaqua, New York on Jan. 3, and the fact that the Justice Department has opened an investigation into the Uranium One scandal, and re-opened its investigation into the Clinton Crime Family Fake Foundation.
  • It has been literally decades since the Fainting Felon went 11 days without making a public appearance.  With the DOJ Inspector General’s office expected to issue its report on its internal investigation as soon as next week, perhaps we should focus future Google searches on sightings of the Coughing Crook and her hubby Bill “vacationing” in non-extradition countries.
  • But hey, maybe she’s just been suffering from a “bad cold,” too.  It seems to be going around in Democrat circles these days.  That tends to happen when the world starts finally closing in around you.

Just another day in it’s a nasty cold season for Democrats America.

That is all.

Thursday Was A Very Big Day For Trump-Style Winning

  • Tired of all this Winning yet?  Part I – For the first time ever, the Dow Jones Industrial average closed above the 25,000 mark on Thursday, as the Trump economy continues to boom.  This close represents the 89th time the Dow has closed at an all-time record high since the day after Election Day, 2016.  Somewhere, NYTimes fake economist Paul Krugman, who famously predicted the markets would “never recover” from Trump’s victory on Election Night, is cringing.
  • Tired of all this Winning yet?  Part II – Americans for Tax Reform reported on Thursday that more than 100 U.S. companies have now announced the awarding of special bonuses to their employees as the result of the passage of the Trump tax reform legislation.  More than 145,000 individuals are impacted by the bonuses offered by Bank of America alone.  No word if Nancy Pelosi has sent all these employees a note telling them this is just a gimmick and that tax reform is going to kill them all, but it seems likely.
  • Tired of all this Winning yet?  Part III – The U.S. private sector added more than 250,000 jobs in December, per ADP and Moody’s Analytics, exceeding the estimate of 190,000.
  • Tired of all this Winning yet?  Part IV – The consultant firm of Challenger, Gray & Christmas reports that announced layoffs for 2018 are at their lowest point since 1990.  1990 was before anyone outside of Arkansas had ever heard of Bill and Hillary Clinton, and Barack Obama was in the early stages of learning Saul Alinsky philosophy from domestic terrorists.  A long time ago.
  • Tired of all this Winning yet?  Part V – The Trump Administration continued its rapid erasure of the legacy of Barack Obama as Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke announced a new plan for offshore oil and gas development that would open up about 90% of federally-owned waters to leasing and exploration.  The plan, to be implemented in 2019, would open up vast swaths of waters off the East and West coasts, in the Eastern Gulf of Mexico and off the North Slope of Alaska that had been off-limits for many years.
  • Tired of all this Winning yet?  Part VI – Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley told reporters that he now has information indicating that ex-FBI Director James Comey intentionally leaked classified information to the New York Times as he was trying to construct a narrative that would justify the appointment of a special counsel in early 2016.
  • Tired of all this Winning yet?  Part VII – John Solomon at The Hill reported that Attorney General Jeff Sessions has finally, at long last, opened up an investigation at the Justice Department into the Clinton Crime Family Fake Foundation.  The investigation will look into whether the Clintons engaged in outright “pay for play” schemes while the Coughing Crook was serving as Secretary of State.
  • Tired of all this Winning yet? Part VIII – Speaking of the corrupt Justice Department, House Intelligence Chairman Devin Nunes announced that he has finally, at long last reached an agreement with DOJ and the FBI to receive documents related to the FBI’s use of the fake Trump Dossier that was compiled by Fusion GPS in collusion with Russian agents, and funded by the Clinton Campaign, the DNC and people who worked for the Obama White House in 2016.  The FBI and DOJ had stone-walled on the production of these documents since August.  This agreement came after House Speaker Paul Ryan backed Nunes when FBI Director Christopher Wray and Deputy AG Rod Rosenstein held a special meeting with Ryan on Tuesday.  As a part of this deal, Wray and Rosenstein also agreed to force Deep State operatives Peter Strzok, Lisa Page and others to offer testimony before the House Intel Committee.  Hooboy.  Big, big win there.
  • Tired of all this Winning yet?  Part IX – In another huge win for Devin Nunes and President Trump, A federal judge in DC ruled that the Fusion GPS firm must provide its financial records to the House Intel Committee.  Fusion had requested an injunction on the specious grounds that production of the documents would somehow violate its First Amendment rights, or something.  Nunes wants these bank records because he wants to find out once and for all whether the rumors that James Comey’s FBI actually helped fund the production of the fake Trump Dossier are true.
  • Tired of all this Winning yet?  Part X – John Solomon also reports that an original copy of a James Comey memo released on Thursday by House Homeland Security Chairman Ron Johnson admitted that “there is evidence of potential violations of the statute proscribing gross negligence in the handling of classified information” by Hillary Clinton on her illegal email server.  That passage was later edited out of the final version of the memo.  Cong. Johnson said, “This effort, seen in light of the personal animus toward then-candidate Trump by senior agents leading the Clinton investigation and their apparent desire to create an ‘insurance policy’ against Mr. Trump’s election, raise profound questions about the FBI’s role and possible interference in the 2016 presidential election.”  Yyyyyyyyyyep.
  • Whew.  Thursday was a big, big day for winning in America, Trump-style, and the fake news media hardly noticed any of this since it was too busy “reporting” over a work of mostly fiction that has former White House Strategy Advisor Steve Bannon and others making nasty comments about President Donald Trump and various members of the Trump family.  One excited reporter even tweeted that Bannon’s saying nasty things about President Trump was “just like Watergate.”  Except, well, it isn’t anything like Watergate at all.

Just another day in the Fake News Media keeps missing the story America.

Steve Bannon Is Now At War With Everyone – Except Roy Moore

  • Hollywood fraud Meryl Streep still can’t bring herself to talk about what she knew and when she knew it when it comes to her “god,” Harvey Weinstein, but she damn sure can go back 39 years take a shot at Dustin Hoffman for a slap in a scene from Kramer vs. Kramer, which she says now was “overstepping.”  So, take that, all you 80 year-old actors who no longer have enough influence to help Meryl Streep command $20 million fees for making movies!
  • Speaking of Hollywood, the Golden Globes Awards kicks off that debased community’s months-long awards season this weekend, and the big thing to know about it is that all the actresses will be wearing black to “honor” the victims of sexual harassment.  It will be interesting to see how many of the black dresses sport navel-revealing necklines, another grand Hollywood tradition.
  • Meanwhile, in a show of solidarity, all the men will also be wearing black tuxedos.  Which, given that’s what the men have always worn to these events, doesn’t really show much solidarity at all, does it?  Seems more like a protest action to me.
  • The University of Michigan has a new curriculum on the subject of “How to Deal With Being White.”  Since I was 14, I’ve dealt with it by getting up early in the morning and going to work, treating everyone I deal with with courtesy and respect, and not becoming a burden to society.  But I’m sure there are other ways.
  • Wednesday, January 3 was the deadline day for the FBI and Justice Department to honor a request by the House Intelligence Committee to turn over documents related to the Democrat/Media created Trump/Russia collusion fantasy play, a request that both DOJ and the FBI have been stonewalling since last August.  Rather than meet their legal obligations in the matter, FBI Director Christopher Wray and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein went up to Capitol Hill to have a meeting with Speaker of the House Paul Ryan.  One would hope Ryan told the two men to get the hell out of his office and go obey the law they’re charged with enforcing, but somehow one lacks much confidence that that’s what actually took place.  In any event, the deadline has passed with no production from the FBI or DOJ, so the ball is back in congress’s court.  With “law enforcement” officials like this, who needs criminals?
  • Fire broke out at the Chappaqua, NY home of Bill and Hillary Clinton on Wednesday, and speculation immediately ran rampant on Twitter that the two lifelong crooks were just burning more records of wrongdoing.  Personally, I figured Hillary had just resorted to dealing with Bill’s latest bimbo eruption by using a Molotov Cocktail.
  • Well, if you wondered why Steve Bannon lasted less than 8 months as the “Chief Strategy Advisor” – whatever that means – in the Trump White House, yesterday’s events should have resolved all confusion.  The guy is nothing more than a tireless self-promoter, and was basically using that position to build his own brand.
  • It is not an accident, for example, that what had been a constant Niagara Falls of leaks coming from the White House slowed to a trickle the day after Bannon was fired.  It is not an accident that, since that firing, the daily messaging confusion that existed at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue has been brought under control.
  • Here’s all you really need to know about Bannon offering all those inflammatory remarks to that random book author:  Bannon was subject to a non-disclosure agreement that he signed when he went to work on the Trump Campaign in August of 2016.  So, putting his name to a binding contract obviously means nothing to the guy, if violating it might elevate his personal public profile.
  • Ironically, Bannon told the audience for Breitbart Radio early Thursday morning that  “nothing will ever come between us and President Trump and his agenda” adding that “we’re tight on this agenda as we’ve ever been.”  You could’ve fooled the President, who said on Wednesday that “Steve Bannon has nothing to do with me or my Presidency…Steve pretends to be at war with the media, which he calls the opposition party, yet he spent his time at the White House leaking false information to the media to make himself seem far more important than he was.”
  • Call me silly, but somehow, it seems unlikely that the President is going to be having Mr. Bannon over for afternoon Diet Coke and Big Macs anytime soon.
  • So now, Steve Bannon is at war with the Democrats; he’s at war with establishment Republicans; he’s at war with the rest of the fake news media; and after yesterday, he’s at war with the White House and the President.  What does it say about a guy when it appears that the only person left in America who he is not at war with is failed Alabama senate candidate Roy Moore?

Just another day in Steve Bannon’s at war with almost everyone America.

That is all.

MSNBC’s Chris Matthews Becomes A #Metoo Test Case

  • Former Obama UN Ambassador Susan Rice, who is most famous for lying to the entire world about what got our people killed in the U.S. Embassy in Benghazi in 2012, weighed in on the demonstrations in Iran:  “How can Trump help Iran’s protesters?  Be quiet.”  That, of course, was the posture Barack Obama took towards a similar uprising in 2009, which helped sentence Iranians to 9 more years of rule under the yoke of the radical mullahs, who the Obama Administration actively supported and awarded access to hundreds of billions of dollars.  Were it not for radical Islamists, Barack Obama would have had no allies in the Middle East at all.  That’s the truth.
  • CNN didn’t have Kathy Griffin around for its New Year’s Eve telecast this year, but it did have some fake reporter named Randi Kaye to serve in Griffin’s former role as the personification of society’s lowest common denominator.  Ms. Kaye didn’t strip down to her bra or hold up a mocked-up bloody head of President Trump, but she did see fit to do a segment aboard one of Denver’s “CannaBus” party buses where everyone was getting stoned, even helping one passenger fire up a bong.  Meanwhile, on Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve, we found out that Britney Spears has gotten back into marvelous physical shape, but still can’t sing or dance.  But nobody in Vegas cares about the latter, obviously.
  • If you thought we knew all the Hillary Clinton scandals at this point, well, think again.  – WikiLeaks leaked another raft of emails on Monday, at least one of which shows the then-Clinton-headed State Department in 2010 receiving in advance the #fakenews publication schedule a week in advance from the New York Times.  If you think this sort of coordination between the fake news media and the Clinton/Obama people was an isolated thing, or that the Trump Administration probably receives similar head’s-up emails, you would be a very, very silly person.  You don’t have to believe me – just go Google “journolist” and read the results that come up for a nice refresher.
  • Al Franken is finally resigning today, but what about Chris Matthews?  Seriously, Franken’s resignation is a blessing for the country, but you have to wonder how MSNBC’s long-time host of “Hardball” will still be in his job by Friday after Sunday’s very detailed report from the Daily Caller about his maintenance of an extremely hostile work environment for women, with the help of a neglectful NBC human resources department and management.  Matthews, who has telegraphed all sorts of on-air cues indicating an abusively sexist mindset over the years, turns out, according to multiple people who worked with him at NBC, to be the guy they make all the sexual harassment videos about.  The Daily Caller’s report is every bit as well-sourced and explosive as was the New York Times’ report last fall on Harvey Weinstein that got the whole #Metoo movement started.  But, you might note that, because the Daily Caller is a “conservative” news outlet going after a very extreme liberal muckety-muck, none of the “mainstream” media outlets are picking up the story.  Imagine that.
  • This is a test case for my belief that the #Metoo thing is already running out of steam, as liberals all over the country finally figure out that it is mainly liberals who have been engaging in these horrible acts, and thus, it is mainly prominent liberals who are losing their jobs.  The radical left is also becoming increasingly concerned about the potential for the #Metoo movement to almost inevitably lead to increased scrutiny of the pedophilia issue that runs rampant in leftist circles, especially in Hollywood.  Plus, now that Roy Moore has been defeated in Alabama’s senate race, the #Metoo victims no longer provide Democrat politicians with convenient political fodder, so you can be sure that, once Franken’s political carcass is buried, the Democrat Party is going to drop this issue like a hot potato.
  • So the wagons are already being circled against #Metoo, especially at NBC, which has already lost Matt Lauer, Mark Halperin and several others in the scandal, and whose entire corporate work environment has been subjected to uncomfortable scrutiny.  All the other big media outlets, knowing they all have similar problems, are more than happy to serve as the de facto cavalry by looking the other way.  If Chris Matthews still has a job at the end of this week, then you’ll know the death of #Metoo is further along than even I had thought, and the only lasting outcome from it all will be some beefed-up sexual harassment training sessions in corporate workplaces around the country.  #Mesad about that, but #Mejustthemessenger.

Just another day in #Metoo is fading fast America.

That is all.

2017 In Review: The Year Trump Changed Everything

The uniformly liberal editors at Time Magazine chose to name the ladies who led the #metoo movement to reveal the sexual predators among us as its “Person of the Year”, but that was a cop out.  While those ladies definitely deserve recognition for the impact they’ve had on society, and the myriad creeps they have exposed, there is no question at all that President Donald Trump, Time’s “Person of the Year” for 2016, should have been named again in 2017.

Trump literally dominated the stage, not just here in the United States, but across the globe, his every word analyzed, his every action criticized, his every tweet obsessed upon by millions.  Never in modern times – or indeed, in history – has a single human being remained perched atop the global public discourse throughout an entire year as Donald Trump did in 2017.  Well, except maybe 2016, when Donald Trump remained perched atop the global public discourse throughout that entire year as well.

On more than 350 of the 365 days in 2017, Today’s Campaign Update was here to help you keep up with the events of the previous 24 hours.  What follows is the Campaign Update’s attempt to sum up the entire year.  It’s a big job, and this will not be brief.  Here we go:

  • Robert Mueller led a slow-rolling coup d’etat – 2017 was the first year during which Americans were treated to 9 months of witnessing what the Campaign Update has described as a slow-rolling coup d’etat.  Germinated by an FBI director’s illegal leaking of information to the New York Times, initiated by the same Deputy Attorney General who wrote the memo advising the President to fire that same FBI director, and led by the previous FBI director in blatant coordination with high-ranking officials within the FBI and DOJ, this effort to unseat a duly-elected President has thus far led mainly to revelations of criminal wrong-doing by Hillary Clinton and high officials in the Obama Administration, many of whom remain among the leadership of the FBI and the Justice Department.
  • The GOP congress initially played along, and then woke up – Throughout much of the year, Republican chairmen over the myriad House and Senate committees running their own investigations into Russia “collusion” seemed intent on allowing their Democrat members to dominate the process.  But as Fall came around and it began to become obvious that the Trump people did nothing wrong, but the Clinton people and the DNC did a whole lot of things wrong, that tide started to turn.  By November, both Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley and House Intelligence Chairman Devin Nunes were aggressively working to get at the real truth and uncover the obvious anti-Trump conspiracy to first interfere with, and then to overturn a duly-conducted election that was run out of the Justice Department throughout 2016 and 2017.   By December, the truth had become publicly obvious to all but the mind-numbed talking points parrots on the political left, and the leaders of the conspiracy had begun to be “reassigned” and otherwise marginalized as the process of building criminal cases against them begins.
  • Jeff Sessions appeared to sleep through most of it – meanwhile, our sleepy Attorney General, who stupidly recused himself from anything having to do with allegations that the Trump campaign “colluded” with Russian agents during the 2016 election campaign, spent most of his year seemingly in a world of his own, apparently unaware that there were any problems within the staff he was ostensibly in charge of managing.  It was only during the last few weeks of the year that his alarm clock seemed to have finally gone off, as he ordered fresh looks into the Uranium One and Project Cassandra scandals.  The jury remains out on Sessions as 2017 comes to a close, but it seems sure that, at some point during 2018, Americans will discover whether he is either a completely worthless appointee or the slyest old political fox who ever lived.  One or the other has to be true.
  • Left-wingers all over America went absolutely nuts, and stayed that way all year long – 2017 will forever be remembered as the year in which the American political left degenerated into a state of permanent outrage.  Everything – literally every.  damn.  thing. – anyone named Trump did threw liberals/progressives/socialists/communists/sjws into feeding frenzies of hysteria.  Every Trump tweet caused an immediate social media uproar.  Every Trump action resulted in hoots of protest from the leftwing fake news media.  The First Lady’s shoe choices were treated as scandals.  Trump’s very inauguration resulted in thousands of pussy-hat-adorned lunatics taking to the streets in a “Women’s March” that was organized by a supporter of Sharia Law, and attended by Harvey Weinstein, the most heinous serial abuser of women in American history.  The lunatic fringe became the lunatic norm on the American left.
  • The economy boomed – Assuming projections of GDP growth of upwards of 4% for the 4th quarter are accurate, 2017 will mark the first year in more than a decade in which the U.S. economy produced three straight quarters of at least 3% economic growth.  Manufacturing jobs – you know, those “old” jobs that Barack Obama assured us were never coming back – came back.  Unemployment approached all-time lows nationally, and reached all-time lows in at least 17 different states.  Millions of working age Americans who had over the previous decade simply given up looking for work streamed back into the workforce.  The Obama-era notions of the “new normal” of no more than 2% growth created by heavy-handed regulation and ever-growing numbers of Americans simply giving up on permanent employment have been shattered.
  • The Obama “legacy” has largely been repealed – Ok, it really wasn’t much of a “legacy” to begin with, but what there was of it has essentially disappeared during the first year of the Trump Presidency.  The biggest weakness this “legacy” had was the fact that it was implemented mainly via regulation and executive order, and thus far easier to get rid of than had it been achieved through the legislative process, as the constitution intends.  President Trump spent much of the first few months of his first year issuing executive orders that rescinded Obama’s orders, and his various cabinet secretaries devoted much of their time ensuring that the Administration meets its promise to rescind at least 2 existing regulations for every new regulation they proposed.  Indeed, that goal was vastly exceeded, as the President announced in early December that his agencies had in fact reversed almost 20 existing regulations for each new one.  Obamacare, Obama’s lone major legislative accomplishment in 8 long years, remains  sort of in place, but is being picked apart piece by piece by congress and the President.  For America’s health, it all adds up to gold, Jerry, gold!
  • The reversal of Obama policies extended to foreign affairs, too – The systematic erasure of Obama’s legacy was not limited to domestic policy – far from it.  The Obama foreign policy based on weakness, open borders, appeasement, apology and outright stupidity had been relegated to nothing more than a set of bad memories as well:
    • President Trump went on two extended international tours and neither apologized nor bowed to any foreign leader;
    • President Trump rescinded U.S. participation in the idiotic and fraudulent Paris Climate Accords;
    • Illegal immigration is down, but not out.  The rate of illegal border crossings slowed to a virtual trickle during the first half of the year, as the President’s rhetoric appeared to have a dampening effect.  But the lack of congressional action to fund the border wall or beef up the budget for border security led to a resurgence over the last few months.  We can be sure the President will re-focus on this crucial issue in the new year;
    • The Obama policy of appeasement towards North Korea es no mas, as Rocket Man is finding out the hard way;
    • ISIS is almost dead.  When Trump took office, Isis controlled about half of Syria and vast swaths of Iraq, and commanded 35,000 terrorist fighters.  Today, ISIS-controlled territory has almost disappeared entirely, as barely 1,000 fighters desperately try to remain alive, thanks pretty much entirely to the new rules of engagement that freed up the U.S. armed forces in the region to kill the despicable bastards;
    • The horrific deal with Iran entered into by Obama and John Kerry still lives, but is on life support.  Meanwhile, President Trump has implemented a new set of onerous sanctions on that terrorist-supporting government;
    • Meanwhile, President Trump has gone about forming up strong new strategic relationships with the leaders of Saudi Arabia, China and Russia based on mutual strength, replacing the years of feckless neglect and weakness practiced by Obama and his doltish and corrupt secretaries of state.
  • Tax Reform is done – After failing by a single vote to repeal Obamacare last summer, Mitch McConnell and his Republican senate caucus finally came through just before Christmas, sending the largest tax cut in American history to Trump’s desk for his signature.  The reduced personal and corporate taxes produced by this law will likely create even faster economic growth than the U.S. experienced in 2017.  Buckle up.
  • The fake news media has utterly disgraced itself – it is no longer possible to keep count of the number of times fake news outlets like CNN, the NYTimes, the Washington Post, NBC, CBS and ABC filed misleading, un-sourced or just made-up-out-of-whole-cloth “reports” designed to demean President Trump throughout 2017.  The sheer volume of false information put out into the public sphere by these and other “news” organizations is completely overwhelming.
  • The fake news media establishment, in coordination with the Democrat Party, set out at the beginning of the year to destroy a presidency.  What it achieved instead was the almost total destruction of a formerly noble profession:  journalism.  So long as Sharyl Attkisson, John Solomon, Sarah Carter and a handful of others like them continue their work, it’s not accurate to say journalism is fully dead, but it is fair to say that, after the shameful behavior of the likes of Jim Acosta and the entire staffs at the NYTimes and WaPo during 2017, it is on life support, and the prognosis is not encouraging.
  • In the end, the net effect of the fake media’s efforts to diminish President Trump is that he finishes his first calendar year in office with essentially the same public approval rating in the Rasmussen Daily Tracking poll as that enjoyed by Barack Obama at the end of 2009.  Given that well over 90% of the media’s coverage of the President has been negative, most often vindictive and inflammatory, that is an almost miraculous result.

But then, this was an almost miraculous presidency to begin with, so that outcome seems completely appropriate.

Just the first year in Donald Trump’s America.

That is all.
