Dear NFL: Please Quit Acting Out So We Can Talk About Something Important

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Oh, my, where to begin?  I really wanted to talk about something other than the NFL’s increasingly tiresome “take a knee” follies, but they remain inescapable for one more day.

  • Let’s start with Cleveland basketball star Lebron James, who told reporters yesterday that the reason his current home state voted for Donald Trump in 2016 was that “I don’t think a lot of the voters was (sic) educated.”  For the record, Lebron James went straight from high school to the NBA and never looked back.
  • Longtime race-baiter Hillary Clinton is back to her race-baiting ways, accusing President Donald Trump (who else?) of being a racist for his comments against NFL players disrespecting the American flag.  “He doesn’t criticize Vladimir Putin, but he criticizes black athletes,” the disciple of racist senators J. William Fulbright and Robert Byrd commented at one stop on her book tour.
  • Most leading Democrats are wishing these days that Ms. Clinton would just shut up and go away, but she at least understands that the Democrat Party as it is currently constituted was built on shameless race-baiting and cannot survive going forward without this sort of constant effort to divide the country along racial lines.  The Democrats are already little more than a regional party whose base is overwhelmingly focused in America’s large inner cities, where the African American population tends to make up a much higher percentage of the overall total.  Ms. Clinton understands that the day the Democrats start getting less than 90% of the black vote is the day it basically disappears entirely.  Thus, her comments yesterday were actually directed, for once, at helping the party in her own demented way rather than her normal shameless self-aggrandizement at everyone else’s expense.  Go figure.
  • Speaking of the NFL, there was actually a game last night in between all the league’s and ESPN’s political activities, and the Dallas Cowboys – America’s Team – put a new twist on the whole “take a knee” deal.  Feeling a burning need to engage in some sort of “unity demonstration” (because after all, everybody else was doing it), the team, along with the coaches and owner Jerry Jones, lined up on the field prior to the national anthem, and, when they were certain the cameras were all focused on them, took a knee for about three seconds as the boos from the Arizona Cardinals’ crowd rained down upon them.  *sigh*
  • To their credit, the team, owner and coaches then backed their silly butts off to the sideline and actually all stood at attention while a field-size American flag was unfurled and the national anthem was sung in a quite inspired way by pop singer Jordin Sparks.  Good for them, and for her.
  • The one positive out of all of this is that, after about a 20 year hiatus, the leftwing networks who cover the game have started televising the national anthem again.  God bless America.
  • The President had his own Twitter take on this deal – because, of course he did – tweeting first that “The booing at the NFL football game last night, when the entire Dallas team dropped to its knees, was loudest I have ever heard. Great anger”.  Well…yep.
  • In his next 140 character comment, the President had basically the same reaction to it all that I did:  “But while Dallas dropped to its knees as a team, they all stood up for our National Anthem. Big progress being made-we all love our country!”
  • Sadly, given the disgusting way most other teams had allowed their players to disrespect the flag, the anthem, the veterans’ honor guards and the country without negative consequence, the way in which the Cowboys handled the whole thing in a unified way, with the entire organization participating, actually was “Big progress”, as President Trump said.
  • We can hope that, now that all these players and teams have had their 15 minutes of attention and various forms of “unity demonstrations”, they might now get back to just shutting up and playing football.  But that is probably too much to ask, which more than anything else shows exactly what is really at the base of all of this:  the players’ desperation for attention.
  • I have no use for Colin Kaepernick, but at least he was protesting against something specific and real when he was doing his one-man “look at me” act last season.  He made it clear that he was protesting ongoing police brutality issues in U.S. society.  But that has now been lost.  What exactly are all these players, coaches and owners demonstrating against now?  That they were insulted by President Trump’s comments last Friday?  Really?
  • Let’s be honest, if that’s what they’re doing out there, then the President’s remarks, which basically boiled down to the NFL commissioner and owners are allowing the inmates to run the asylum, obviously hit very, very close to home.  Otherwise, all this acting out wouldn’t be happening, now, would it?

Just another day in dying NFL America.

That is all.

The Democrat Party’s Real Problems For 2018 Are Its Own Ugly, Sordid Faces

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

  • If you want proof that Republicans and Democrats live in two completely different sets of reality, all you need to do is go read the piece linked here summarizing a new Gallup survey regarding Americans’ trust in the fake news media.  According to Gallup – whose results admittedly must always be called into question since it refuses to publicly release the sampling methods behind its polling – fully 72% of Democrats have “a great deal/fair amount of trust and confidence” in the accuracy of the country’s fake news media, while just 14% of Republicans and 37% of Independents admit to holding the same view.
  • Let that set in for a moment.  As an example, when President Trump visited Houston in the wake of Hurricane Harvey, he was filmed by all media present interacting with literally hundreds of ordinary people, hugging them, talking to them, coloring pages with their children, helping them load their trucks with supplies, working behind the lunch counter at the shelter, etc.  It was an extraordinary example of presidential leadership and empathy with the common man.  Yet that evening, when CNN and MSNBC both falsely reported that the President had met no one, interacted with no one, and ignored the suffering of those people, Gallup tells us that 72% of the nation’s Democrats believed those reports, despite the video evidence before their own lyin’ eyes.
  • That’s not just a disconnect, that is conscious, intentional exercise in mass self-delusion.  Given that self-described “Democrats” make up about 35% of adults, Gallup’s results indicate that roughly one out of every four adults you come across lives in a complete and total fake media-created fantasy world.  Truly frightening.
  • This brings me to a long piece published in Time on Wednesday, which attempts to analyze how the Democrat Party’s ‘leaders’, such as they are, are trying desperately to get the Party’s act together in preparation for the 2018 mid-term elections and the 2020 presidential contest.  It’s a decent, if superficial, analysis, focused mainly on the Party’s math problem in terms of how few levers of power it actually controls, its pathetic fundraising efforts, and the conflicts among the Party’s current ‘leaders’ – again, such as they are – over whether to continue trying to attract the independent voters who will make or break their efforts to win races, or just chuck it all and take the Bernie Sanders/Elizabeth Warren turn to the hard left.
  • In other words, the piece is all the standard ‘insider’ stuff written by a standard DC ‘insider’ fake reporter.  It’s all the sort of stuff that actually mattered in the days before the 2016 campaign and President Donald Trump, but now really just doesn’t get to the heart of the matter and which betrays a complete lack of real understanding of what is going on in the 95% of the country that lies outside of the nation’s major media centers.
  • Here’s the reality for the Democrat Party:  The Party has to completely change the faces that represent it in order to have any chance at all to regain real levers of power through the electoral process.  And that is a process of change that will take years, not weeks or months, to achieve.
  • The faces of the Democrat Party today are a) Corruption (Hillary Clinton), b) Commies (Bernie Sanders), c) fraud (Elizabeth “Fauxcahontas” Warren), d) open borders radicalism (DNC leaders), e) dishonesty and incompetence (Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer) and f) thuggery (Antifa, Black Lives Matter, and other Soros-supported civil unrest groups).  If they’re smart (always an open question, I admit), Republican candidates in 2018 and 2020 won’t be spending their time and money running against their nominal Democrat opponents, they will be spending most of their time and money running against all these ugly, grossly unpopular faces of the Democrat Party as a whole.
  • Democrat candidates for office can talk all they want to about all the “free stuff” they plan to hand out to anyone who votes for them, but when the face of your Party is San Fran Nan, or black-masked thugs who spend their time violently assaulting political opponents and tossing bags filled with urine at policemen, those promises of “free stuff” are going to largely fall on deaf ears.  Time talks about Democrat efforts to turn 24 currently-GOP congressional seats to their advantage in order to regain a majority in the House of Representatives.  Time doesn’t really talk about how inevitably leftwing Democrat candidates are going to convince moderate and conservative voters in these “flyover country” districts to vote for them when the GOP incumbents are running ad after ad featuring the Commie, the Most Corrupt Woman in America, or video of town squares being burned by the armed “Resistance” wing of the Democrat Party.
  • As we’ve seen in this year’s special elections, the GOP was able to retain all five congressional seats in play, even when its candidates were weak or damaged, mainly by simply running ads featuring the stumbling, bumbling, doddering Nancy Pelosi.  They haven’t even gotten around to running ads airing all the glowing, supportive statements about Antifa and Black Lives Matter coming from the mouths of Pelosi, Schumer, Obama, Clinton, Sanders and Warren, complete with video of Berkeley or St. Louis burning in the background.
  • This is the Democrats’ real problem for 2018 and 2020, and the foreseeable future beyond.  We can count on all the “experts” in DC and New York to completely miss it, but it’s real, and there is no apparent solution to it.  Regardless of how poorly the Republicans perform in their congressional efforts, their saving grace is likely to be the fact that they get to run for re-election against the ugly, sordid faces of the Democrat Party.

Just another day in Donald Trump’s America.

Nancy Pelosi Gets A Real Dreamer Lesson

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

  • That uncomfortable moment when a Democrat politician reaps what she has sown… – San Fran Nan Pelosi just can’t make herself stop being embarrassed in public.  Fresh off of two public speaking appearances in which she sounded like nothing less than a lush stumbling out of a bar at midnight, the House Minority Leader stumbled into an appearance in San Francisco at an event that was designed to show support for her efforts to memorialize Barack Obama’s unconstitutional DACA executive order into statute.  With the room being filled with illegal aliens who have been staying in the U.S. under the protection of this illegal order, San Fran Nan no doubt anticipated a very polite, very friendly audience.  After all, these “Dreamers” are just the bestest, most politest bunch of innocent children ever, right?
  • Uh, not quite.  Turns out the “Dreamers” in attendance were a group of ill-behaved, entitled punks, which should come as a surprise to no one who has paid any attention at all to the nature of their prior demonstrations, which are always covered wall-to-wall by the 24 hour cable news channels.  So it was that, as Dear Nan stepped to the podium to give what no doubt would have been a scripted talk filled with glowing platitudes and the standard Democrat falsehoods, the punks surrounded her and began shouting at her.  San Fran Nan, obviously shocked and literally shaking with fear, tried for several minutes to calm everyone down and give her worthless talk, but the entitled punks were having none of it.  Ultimately, Dear Nan was forced to just meekly leave the podium and return to the safety of her limousine.
  • It was, in one word, awesome.  Awesome that the Minority Leader was utterly humiliated in public, as she deserved to be.  Awesome that these entitled punks are so dimwitted that they somehow think that committing such an act actually helps their cause.  Awesome that San Fran Nan and her fellow Democrats are now having to scramble and try to clean up the PR nightmare these “Dreamers” have become.  Just totally awesome, dudes.
  • We should acknowledge that the punks at this demonstration do not personify the behavior and attitudes of all the 800,000 or so “Dreamers” who remain in our country illegally.  But we should also acknowledge that we don’t see any of those other “Dreamers” getting their butts out on television to disavow them.  Finally, we should note that the “Dreamers” are no different than any of the myriad other leftwing single interest groups that make up the voter base for today’s Democrat Party, in that they are all inevitably represented on television by the most idiotic and radical nitwits among them.
  • I’ve now watched the clip of Dear Nan’s humiliation at least 20 times, and just cannot get enough of it.  It think I’m going to put it on a permanent loop on the TV in our living room.  It’s just the bestest thing ever.
  • Strangely, no apologies to the President were forthcoming from anyone in the fake news media – In other news, I’m old enough to remember when the fake news minions scoffed at Donald Trump’s contention early this year that the Obama Administration had wire-tapped Trump Tower before and after the election.  Yesterday, the fake journalists at CNN meekly reported that Special Counsel Bob Mueller’s staff leakers had leaked the fact that the Obama Administration had…wait for it…wait for it…WIRE-TAPPED PAUL MANAFORT’S HOME IN TRUMP TOWER both before and after the election.
  • I’m old enough to remember last October, when The Most Corrupt Woman In America, along with every other Democrat on the face of the earth, said Donald Trump’s implication that he might question the legitimacy of the election should he lose was tantamount to treason.  On Monday, The Most Corrupt Woman would not rule out the possibility that she might at some point…wait for it…wait for it…QUESTION THE LEGITIMACY OF THE ELECTION!  I swear I don’t make this stuff up.  I mean, really, who could?

Just another day in Dreamer, Nothing But a Dreamer America.

An America Beset By Immature Children Acting Out

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Ok, lessee here….what’s been going on in America over the weekend?

  • Oh, well, we had three nights of rioting in St. Louis because a St. Louis jury acquitted a St. Louis cop who was falsely accused of murdering a St. Louis drug dealer six years ago.  To hear the rioters tell it, this drug dealer was the second coming of Rosa Parks and just the best person who ever walked the sidewalks of St. Louis.  I hadn’t said anything about this because riots in the greater St. Louis area have become such a regular occurrence since Barack Obama’s Justice Department began encouraging them and George Soros began funding professional rioters to create them in 2014 that they barely make a blip on my screen anymore.  They have become tiresome displays of immature children acting out over false outrages, the audience and sympathy for which grow smaller by the day.
  • Speaking of tiresome displays of immature children acting out over false outrages, for which the audience and sympathy grow smaller by the day, the Emmy Awards were handed out Sunday night.  Hosted by the execrable, unfunny late night outrage show host Stephen Colbert, the program predictably became nothing but a 3-hour platform for spoiled children to act out over false outrages, all directed at the President of the United States.  The overnight Nielsons weren’t available as of this writing, but we can be sure the ratings for this star-studded group temper tantrum will be down from last year – when they hit a historic low – and will continue to fall through the duration of the Trump Presidency.  This is what happens when performers go out of their way to gratuitously offend half of their potential audience at every given opportunity.
  • Rumors were flying prior to showtime that Hillary Clinton would make a cameo appearance at the show, but it turned out she was too busy signing books on the toilet paper aisle of her local CostCo to make the gig.  But Kate McKinnon, who played The Most Corrupt Woman in America in Saturday Night Live skits, took her presenting role as an opportunity to thank Crooked Hillary for her “grace”.  Proving, of course, that Kate McKinnon doesn’t know the difference between graft and grace.
  • Never to be left out, the NFL continues to demonstrate it has its own sub-population of immature children acting out, as players like Seattle’s Michael Bennett have now decided that protesting the national anthem just isn’t enough attention-seeking, and have begun taking their “look at me!” stunts onto the field.  Bennett celebrated a sack on Sunday with a single raised fist, the old “black power” salute made famous in the 1960s.
  • In other news that should not be news, pollster John McLaughlin came out with new data over the weekend, warning establishment Republicans in congress that they need to start actually keeping their campaign promises or Trump voters won’t turn out to re-elect them in next year’s mid-term elections.  The great wonder with this news item is that establishment Republicans apparently need polling data confirmation of something that would be obvious to the average third grader.  But this is how dim-witted establishment Republicans are.
  • The McLaughlin survey also found that a large plurality of surveyed GOP voters believe that Republicans in congress are working in opposition to President Trump’s efforts to “drain the swamp”, and fully 63% of GOP voters believe it is time for Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and Speaker of the House Paul Ryan to be replaced.  If any of these results surprise you, you just haven’t been paying close enough attention.
  • If establishment Republicans were intelligent (hah-hah! I’m cracking myself up here!), they would be working feverishly to keep some of those grand promises they all made during their 2016 campaigns.  Instead, they are currently in the midst of an 11-day vacation following just a week of work that came after their month-long August recess.  When they come back next week, they only have five working days left in September before they take their next vacation.
  • What all this shiftlessness and mendacity reminds us of is that there was a very good reason why establishment Republicans in Washington were, just 12 months ago, the single most-hated subset of the DC swamp among the public at large.  Donald Trump’s resurgent presidential campaign bailed them out from what had been shaping up to be a disastrous election cycle in 2016, but that crutch won’t be available in 2018.
  • Unless these layabout GOP dilettantes get their collective act together and start sending promise-keeping legislation to the President’s desk for signing, it becomes more likely by the day that Trump voters will abandon their stinking, er, “sinking” ship in next year’s elections.  Whether that would result in the turning over of one or both houses of congress remains a good question, since the Democrats remain in a state of insoluble disarray, but it all could be avoided by the Republicans’ simply doing some of the things they promised to do.  But this seems to be a bridge too far for McConnell, Ryan and their hapless minions, who obviously view keeping their vacation schedule sacrosanct as their number one duty.

Just another day in immature children acting out America.

That is all.

The Results Of What Happened

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Today’s Campaign Update is very brief.  While President Trump was in the White House conducting all manner of state business on Saturday, The Most Corrupt Woman held a book signing at a table stationed between the bottled water and mega-packages of toilet paper at a Costco in Brookfield, CT.  Both 2016 presidential candidates were right where they belong.

Hillary Continues Her Nora Desmond Act With Jane Pauley as Facilitator

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

  • It’s all your fault, too, Jane. – The Most Corrupt Woman in America sat down for an interview with Jane Pauley on Sunday’s CBS Morning News program, and boy was this a hard-hitting slugfest!  Ok, just kidding.  Ms. Pauley is of course just another fake journalist who openly rooted for Ms. Clinton during the 2016 election campaign.  Plus, the parent company of CBS also owns the company that is publishing Hillary’s latest bit of fiction, so the chances of any real journalism taking place in the interview were roughly equal to the chances of the San Francisco Giants to win this year’s World Series.
  • Question #1:  How much should all Americans hate all Americans for causing you to lose? – No wonder, then, that the interview began with Ms. Pauley literally impaling her self at the altar of Hillary worship with this question:  “So, I’m wondering.  How are you?”  It all went downhill from there, with Ms. Pauley even jumping in to help Her Corruptness expand on her hateful points.  At one point, after Clinton had claimed that Donald Trump had played to the “millions of people who were upset about gains that were made by others,” good ol’ Jane piped in with “…millions of white people…”, to which Senora Corrupcion quickly agreed.
  • If only this could go on forever.  Oh, wait… – Otherwise, the interview amounted to just another opportunity for The Corrupt Woman to whine, act out, point fingers, slander the current President of the United States and basically blame everyone in the known universe – except, of course, her own self – for denying her her life’s rightful conclusion as brutal dictator of the entire world!!!!!!, er, the first female POTUS.
  • In the end, the interview was just a sad chat fest between two relics of the 1990s, a parting gift by CBS to the network’s preferred candidate, delivered by a long-ago has-been who also once thought she should rule the entire world from the anchor desk at NBC’s Nightly News.
  • Ok, who’s stupid enough to criticize the Clintons in public?  You? No.  You?  No.  Hey, let’s get Doug Schoen! – But no matter how pathetic a character the Corruption Queen becomes, she steadfastly refuses to leave the national stage, reminding of no one so much as Gloria Swanson playing the washed up movie queen Nora Desmond in Sunset Boulevard.  Her never ending ‘you all failed me’ tours have become very unproductive exercises for the Democrat Party, whose leadership, such as it is, would like to move on.  Things have become so dire that someone in power convinced long-time Democrat operative Doug Schoen, who worked on The Most Corrupt Woman’s failed 2008 quest for total domination, that it would be a great idea for him to write a piece in The Hill encouraging Ms. Clinton to please just go away already.
  • Dear Hillary: please don’t make me ‘commit suicide’ for writing this, ok? – Mr. Schoen’s piece is actually very pointed, and contains this key paragraph:  “Recently, Clinton was quoted saying that she felt that Trump “was literally breathing down my neck” during a debate, and that she felt “incredibly uncomfortable.” While this generates lots of coverage for her, these anecdotes only distract from the real reasons she lost and the changes the Democratic Party needs to make going forward.”  Hooboy.  Let’s hope Mr. Schoen has kept his life insurance premiums paid up to date.
  • He’s been waiting for this moment for twelve long years. – As Hurricane Irma made landfall on Sunday, the streets of Miami literally were flowing with water.  We can count on Al Gore to include films of this flooding in his next fake climate change documentary, and tell his viewers that this was just a normal Tuesday in Little Havana.
  • Quick, hide the wife and children. – Joe Biden’s daughter, Ashley Biden, told a reporter that her father is “considering” a run for the presidency in 2020, when he will be 76 years old.  Ok, so, who is going to get Schoen to write another piece telling Joe it’s time to shut up and go away?  And what about Bernie?  And Elizabeth Warren?  How many times can the Democrats go to the Schoen well here?

Just another day in the Democrat Party is Dying and There’s No Way to Stop it America.

James Comey: All Phony, All The Time

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

  • Hey, remember waaaayyyyyy back in July of 2016, when bi-polar former FBI Director James “Leaky” Comey feigned seriousness in his nationally televised statement about his decision not to refer Hillary Clinton for criminal prosecution over her rampant disclosure of national secrets on an illegal email server?  Remember how he got a little choked up with emotion a couple times there, almost looking like he was on the verge of tears?  Remember how he claimed his decision was an excruciating one, a decision based on long months of arduous investigation by himself and dozens of his FBI agents?  Good times…good times….
  • Yeah, that was all fake.  Turns out, he made that decision months before – in April, in fact, and that everything that took place related to the investigation after that was just for show.  This was all quietly revealed on Thursday with the release of transcripts from a closed Senate Judiciary Committee hearing that took place earlier this year.  In the grand pantheon of sleazy American public servants, it is hard to think of anyone more sleazy than James Comey has turned out to be.  But hey, that’s how a career bureaucrat gets himself a multi-million dollar book deal and becomes a hero to those on the political left.
  • And speaking of FBI sleaze…:  Don’t think the systemic corruption at the FBI has ended just because Comey and Barack Obama and Loretta Lynch are no longer in charge.  Earlier this week, the FBI formally announced that it was withholding a mass of documents related to the fake investigation of the Clinton email scandal “due to lack of public interest” in the matter.  Even J. Edgar Hoover, as hopelessly corrupt as he was, rolled over in his grave at that bit of shameless sophistry.
  • But all is not lost:  On Thursday, Federal Judge James Boasberg ordered the agency to immediately release all previously unreleased documents related to the investigation.  While that’s wonderful, the thing that really needs to happen here is for Attorney General Jeff Sessions to get his butt over to the FBI building and fire a bunch of people.
  • Twitter progressives before yesterday:  “Trump is rich!!!! Why won’t he donate his own money to the hurricane relief funds!!!!!!!”  Twitter progressives this morning, after Trump gave $1 million:  “Trump doesn’t care !!!  He’s just doing it for the attention!!!!”
  • Truth about 99.9% of those Twitter progressives:  they haven’t given one thin dime of their own money to any of the relief funds.  If it weren’t for rank hypocrisy, these people would have no discernible personality traits other than undying rage.
  • Barack and Michelle Obama, who already have a home in the outskirts of Washington, DC valued at about $9 million, are now looking to purchase a vacant lot in Martha’s Vineyard valued at $15 million.  This is a couple who have never in their lives earned a combined salary in excess of $400,000 per year.  Politics is obviously great work if you can get it.
  • These are not reasonable people you’re talking to, Senator.:  California’s geriatric Sen. Dianne Feinstein is in big, big trouble with her party’s never-ending rage voter base, after she advised a gathering of her constituents to “be patient” with President Trump at a townhall meeting earlier this week.  Big mistake, saying something like that to a group of people whose only reason for getting up out of bed each morning is so they can project their rage on anyone they happen to run into, either in person or on social media.  So now they’re projecting some of that never-ending rage on the senior Senator from California.  Cool.
  • They need to learn that bigotry is now cool among those on the political left.:  The UK Sun reports that L’Oreal has now fired its first trans-gender model after he…oops…’Ze’ went on a Facebook rant accusing all white people of being inherently racist.  Apparently, the management at L’Oreal needs to undergo a joint sensitivity training session at which they learn that this model was simply parroting the talking points of the Democratic National Committee.

Yet Another Riot In Yet Another Democrat City

Today’s Campaign Update 

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

  • Yet another police stand-down in another Democrat-controlled city took place on Sunday, and yet again the fake news media pretty much ignored the story.  This time, the Antifa-led riot took place in a familiar place – Berkeley California, where an Oregon-based group called “Patriot’s Prayer” had planned to hold a peaceful demonstration of the exercise of free speech, a rapidly-dying concept in our country wherever Democrats are in control.
  • Lacking confidence in the intent of the Berkeley police to provide adequate security, Patriot’s Prayer cancelled its event, but a few of its members showed up anyway to exercise their supposed constitutional right to assemble and speak.  That was when they were set upon by hundreds of black-clad, masked Antifa terrorists.  As is always the case whenever Antifa thugs arrive, beatings and destruction of property ensued.   (Ironically, much of the action took place underneath a banner hung from a light pole that read, “Berkeley Stands United Against Hate.”)
  • And, as has been the case several times previously in Berkeley this year, the police were obviously ordered to stand down and did nothing to curb the violence.  At one point, they abandoned the scene altogether, retreating to a nearby station, where I guess they had a cup of coffee and some donuts.
  • When interviewed by a local news station about the situation, Berkeley Police Chief Andrew Greenwald was nonchalant about his decision to stand down, saying “It’s a little early, we will take a look at what happened today but it doesn’t make sense to fight over something where the conditions have changed. The need for separation simply didn’t exist. And we’ll review the operation and once again learn from what we did. And that’s pretty much all I have to say for you now…And as far as I am concerned there are some deep discussions that need to happen within our community about providing space for Antifa and some of the folks we saw here today.”
  • So, the Democrat Chief of Police, having obviously been ordered to stand down by the Democrat Mayor, is more concerned about “providing space for Antifa” than anything else that took place in his city on Sunday.  This is your Democrat Party today, folks.  You vote for these anti-American idiots – and that’s what these people running Berkeley, Charlottesville and many other cities are – at your own risk.
  • The UK Daily Mail reports that “scientists” have produced a study showing that women with wide faces have a lust for power.  That certainly helps to explain Hillary Clinton, Angela Merkel, Debbie Wasserman-Schulz and Elizabeth Warren, but gives us no insight at all on the mouse-faced Nancy Pelosi, or the never-ending clown show that is Maxine Waters.
  • President Trump’s pardon of 85 year-old former Maricopa County, AZ Sheriff Joe Arpaio predictably touched off yet another round of outright crazy from the Trump-hating left and the Trump-hating #neverTrump moron faction of the Republican Party.  The silliest criticism came from political enemies like Arizona senators like John McCain and Jeff Flake, who derided the President for “not following the Justice Department review process” with the pardon, as if there is some “process” that governs what is an absolute authority granted explicitly to all presidents in the Constitution.
  • The best, though, were a set of idiotic op-eds from leftist authors claiming that the pardon was somehow “impeachable” and an “assault on the judiciary”, as a couple of writers did.  The Washington Post felt is was appropriate to publish at least two such pieces.
  • Here’s reality:  This 85 year-old was about to be sentenced to jail time for ignoring the order of a leftist federal judge to stop enforcing immigration law.  That’s the truth.  This judge “convicted” Mr. Arpaio of “contempt” while denying him his right to a trial by jury, something that is also explicitly guaranteed in the Bill of Rights.  Her decision would have beyond all doubt been overturned by the U.S. appellate court, but she is so focused on making a political prisoner of Mr. Arpaio that she was moving to sentence him before his appeal could be heard.  This is what fake Republicans like McCain and Flake, and the entirety of the nation’s fake news media are supporting.
  • Meanwhile, Barack Obama, during his 8 years in office, issued 1,715 pardons of a wide variety of murderers, thugs, drug dealers and at least one trans-gender traitor to the nation without generating a peep of protest from McCain, Flake or any of the op-ed writers at the Washington Post. And guess what?  He had an unfettered, explicit constitutional authority to issue those pardons, as repugnant to the sensibilities of most thinking Americans they might have been.
  • But hey, you can’t cure crazy like these people are exhibiting.  Long after we have cures for AIDS, cancer, muscular dystrophy and the heartbreak of psoriasis, Trump Derangement Syndrome-style crazy will endure.

Just another day in stand down cops in Democrat cities America.

That is all.

Conservatives Must Focus on Defeating The Alinsky Democrats

Today’s Campaign Update 

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

  • It is a sad truth of our current societal situation that those on the left wing of the political spectrum no longer possess the ability to argue political issues based on anything resembling facts or logic.  I used to say that they no longer desire to do so, but it has become abundantly clear over the last decade that progressives simply no longer have the ability.
  • The left abandoned any effort to really debate issues at the outset of the Bill Clinton presidency, as the Clintons brought their Saul Alinsky rules for radicals tactics to the White House.  Those rules consist of a dozen tactics that focus away from working cooperatively with the opposition to reach reasonable compromises on issues, and focus instead on a mounting a constant drumbeat of demonization of the opposition.  What was at first a conscious, intentional decision by those on the left to abandon facts and logic has, after 25 years, become a complete loss of the skill.

  • Rule 12 reads “Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it.”  This is the tactic the Democrats and the fake news media have used against President Trump since Hillary Clinton and her campaign people invented the “Russia Collusion” fantasy play two days after last November’s election.  That fantasy, and James Comey’s collusion with it, got them a Special Counel investigation, and will probably nab them a few victims like Paul Manafort for Robert Mueller and his team of Clinton/Obama shills to prosecute.  That tactic initially conformed to Alinsky Rule #6, “A good tactic is one your people enjoy.”
  • But it has now worn thin with the public, as the months and months of investigations turn up no real evidence that Donald Trump and his people colluded with the Russians in any way.  As a result, it has run up onto the shoals of Alinsky Rule 7, “A tactic that drags on too long becomes a drag.”  This is why the Democrat/fake media axis of disinformation had to move onto another tactic for freezing and polarizing the President.
  • So, along came Charlottesville.  We now know that the clown who organized the “Unite the Right” white supremacist rally there and got it permitted, Jason Kessler, is a leftist radical who was also an organizer of the George Soros-funded Occupy Wall Street movement.  Probably not coincidentally, it also appears that he is a former producer at …wait for it…CNN!  Given Kessler’s true identity, it is a safe bet that other leftwing radicals participated in that “Unite the Right” rally in order to create negative footage for CNN and other fake news outlets to air.  Classic Alinsky tactics.
  • To ensure maximum negative footage from Charlottesville, leftwingers funded by Soros arranged to bus in hundreds of Antifa and Black Lives Matter thugs to stage an un-permitted protest and turn the whole thing into a riot.  We now know that the police were told to stand down by the city’s leftist radical mayor to ensure maximum carnage took place, and then reliable Clinton toady Terry McAuliffe, the governor of Virginia, gave a completely false and inflammatory speech once the damage was all done.
  • At that point, it did not matter what President Trump said in the wake of the tragic event, he was going to be demonized by the Axis of Disinformation, because that is the final step in this strategy, in keeping with Alinsky Rule #12.  His statement on Saturday was perfectly fine.  Indeed, both former presidents with the last name of Bush issued almost exactly the same statement on Wednesday, and the media parroted it without negative comment.
  • Thus, the tactic that had drug on for too long – Russia Collusion – now has been shifted to a new tactic the leftists love – Trump is a racist, with the fake news media lapdogs loyally executing Rule #8, “Keep the pressure on.  Never let up.”
  • Make no mistake, this is the left’s playbook for as long as Donald Trump is President.  There will be no logical debates.  There will be no cooperation in congress, no compromise on Obamacare, tax reform, infrastucture or any other of the major issues.  Indeed, so long as congressional Republicans continue their own responsive tactics of cowering in fear and making carefully-worded statements that conform to the left’s current narrative, this is how it will be from now on, because that cowardly response by the GOP only breeds confidence among the left.
  • Real conservatives have a choice to make, and that choice amounts to surrender, or working to defeat the left without quarter and without compromise.  Conservatives need to deploy their own set of tactics against the left designed to achieve victory.  The tactics below are based on Alinsky Rule 1, “Power is not only what you have, but what the enemy thinks you have.”:
    • Stop engaging them in debate – after all, they stopped engaging with you in any real way a quarter century ago;
    • Work to regulate the hell out of social media monopolies like Google, Facebook, YouTube and Twitter.  Make Silicon Valley pay for its collective decision to become a propaganda arm of the Democrat Party.  Anti-trust rules exist for good reason – President Trump should work to become the reincarnation of Teddy Roosevelt;
    • The Justice Department should bring RICO prosecutions against the Clintons and top officials at their pay-to-play family crime foundation.  This classic mob-modeled racket is exactly why the RICO laws exist.  Use them;
    • Jeff Sessions should appoint a second special counsel to investigate Robert Mueller and his obvious conflicts, and his decision to hire only Democrat shills in his investigation, and a third special counsel to investigate Hillary Clinton’s email abuses, and Bill Clinton and Loretta Lynch’s efforts to fix the 2016 FBI investigation;
    • The President should appoint West Virginia Democrat Senator Joe Manchin to be Secretary of Energy, after moving Rick Perry over to be the Secretary of Homeland Security.  That will allow WVA GOP Gov. Justice to appoint a Republican to take Manchin’s place, raising the GOP’s senate majority by one.
    • The Republican senate majority should eliminate the filibuster rule entirely, eliminating the ability of the Democrat minority to roadblock progress.  If Majority Leader Mitch McConnell doesn’t have the stomach for this battle, conservative senators should refuse to cooperate with leadership until McConnell steps down from the job.
  • This could go on and on – there are tons of tactics at the disposal of real conservatives in this fight.  The point is this:  the Republican Party is the clear majority party in this country, and it is long past time that it started acting like it.  Republicans have allowed themselves to be cowed and paralyzed by the left’s Alinsky tactics for a quarter of a century now, and we see them still trying to engage these radicals in constructive debates on issues.
  • The Alinsky Democrats cannot be reasoned with, they can only be defeated.  Albert Einstein famously said that “doing the same thing over and over again, expecting a different result is the definition of insanity.”  There is no time like the present for conservatives to stop being insane.

Just another day in Saul Alinsky-dominated America.

That is all.
