It Was Congressional Apprentice Time in the Oval Office Conference Room

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Here’s how you become President for Life in China. – In an effort to crack down on critics of President Xi Jinping, China’s government has recently gone about banning all sorts of things, including:

  • Winnie the Pooh (because some have said Xi looks like the famous cartoon character);
  • The books “Animal Farm” and “1984” for obvious reasons; and
  • The letter “N”, for reasons no one is quite sure about.

Upon seeing this news, liberals all over America had as their first thought, “hey, we could ban the letter “G” so nobody could talk about guns, and the letters “T” and “C” so nobody could ever talk about cutting taxes ever again!”  Because that’ is how the liberal mind works.  Sure wish China would quit giving these people ideas.

Speaking of liberals, NBC News reports that the housing shortage in Berkeley and other parts of Northern California has become so severe and created rent and home prices so high that liberals are now fighting with fellow liberals on how to address the issue.  The ’60s-era hippies who created the problem in the first place by insisting on “slow growth” policies are in their 70s and 80s now.  They all have their personal beds made and don’t really see a problem at all.  But the younger, Millennial-age hipsters who staff all the Silicon Valley companies want cheaper housing and lower rents, and are pushing for faster growth policies.

This all creates a virtual sitcom-worthy situation of liberals hurling epithets at one another that is always a joy to read and invariably exhibits an extraordinary lack of self-awareness.  One 78 year-old hippie says this about the younger contingent:  “I think they are a combination of dumb and venal and maybe equal parts of both.”  Now, can there be any doubt at all that this woman said this while wearing a Bernie Sanders for President t-shirt and sipping a half-caf, decaf, mocha soy latte?

Meanwhile, a spokesman for the younger contingent fires back with things like “They are the masters of hypocritical progressivism,” no doubt while wearing a Che Guevara cap while sitting in the front seat of a brand new $120,000 Porsche, the payment on which is higher than his rent, but which is a necessary status symbol in the Silicon Valley crowd.  Awesome stuff.  If Bravo weren’t staffed exclusively by liberals who lack the ability to see the hilarity in this conflict, this would make a great reality TV show.  Hey, maybe HGTV could send me and my wife out to California to become the hosts of a new show called Flip or Flop, Berkeley!

All Hope is lost. – Well, White House Communications Director Hope Hicks is lost, anyway.  The fourth occupant of the most difficult job in America became the latest to announce her resignation on Wednesday, citing the standard desire to “seek other opportunities.”  In the corporate world, this phrase invariably means the person leaving was actually forced out of his or her job.  Given all the high praise coming Ms. Hicks’s way from President Trump and Chief of Staff John Kelly, they’re the most likely suspects for having done the forcing.

The fake news media, as it does anytime anyone resigns from the White House Staff, is of course portraying the resignation of the 29 year-old communications person as “the beginning of the end for Donald Trump.”  It’s like the 6,000th time we’ve heard that since April 2015, and we can only assume we will hear it 6,000 times more before President Trump is re-elected for a second term in November 2020.

Speaking of President Trump, the guy who every fake reporter in the fake news media keeps telling us wants to silence the press once again invited the press to stay and record every second of a major meeting in the Oval Office conference room on Wednesday.  Surrounded by congressional Democrats and Republicans most interested in the gun control debate, the President spent over an hour dominating a back and forth discussion what could and could not be included in a bipartisan bill on the issue, in a scene very reminiscent of an episode of The Apprentice.

Republicans in the meeting did not appreciate being put on the spot by the President on several issues, but hey, these are the same Republicans who have not done a damn thing in 4 months since the Las Vegas massacre about getting rid of bump stocks, despite the NRA’s endorsement for doing so.  So it’s kind of hard to have much sympathy for them.

The President, as he tends to do in such settings, indicated support for things he really won’t support at the end of the day – like Dianne Feinstein’s confiscatory bill banning half the guns sold in America today – but he did put people on the spot to get something done, which was the goal of the meeting.  In doing so, he also gave the fake news media a level of access that it never had from Barack Obama or any other modern president.  But, being the liberals that they all are, it is doubtful anyone in the fake news media has the sense of self-awareness needed to recognize that reality.

Just another day in Congressional Apprentice America.

That is all.

Georgia Republicans’ Show of Spine is Giving Delta a Case of the Blues

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Tired of all this Winning yet? – President Donald Trump’s public approval rating in the Rasmussen Survey is now 50%, seven percent higher than the rating in the same poll for Barack Obama on the same date in his second term in office.  This should not be surprising, given that Obama at that time was having to defend the Obamacare bill, which would take hundreds of billions of dollars away from working Americans, while Trump is currently promoting the Trump tax cuts, which give hundreds of billions of dollars back to working Americans.  Funny how that works, huh?

Democrats in action. – ICE agents were able to round up 150 illegal aliens in the Oakland area on Tuesday, in a roundup of known lawbreakers.  An ICE spokesman estimated that about 850 more known criminals were able to evade the roundup, blaming at least some of those escapes on Oakland’s nitwit Mayor, Libby Schaff, who issued a warning to the criminals to head for the hills on Monday.  This intentional effort to ensure that known criminals remain at large among her city’s population is what leftwingers like Schaff refer to as “protecting the people.”

More Democrats in action. – Bizarre Barbra Streisand told Variety that she had her dog cloned.  Hey, as long as nobody clones Barb, I got no problem with that.

Still more Democrats in action. – U.S. Olympic skier Gus Kenworthy was horrified by the Korean tradition of eating dogs, saying that “Dogs are friends, not food.”  So the skier admirably decided to engage in a little symbolism of his feelings, adopting a puppy from one of the country’s thousands of food dog kennels.  Amerian social justice warriors, upon learning of Kenworthy’s compassionate rescue of the little puppy, reacted very predictably:  They screamed that he is engaging in “cultural colonialism” and hammered him on social media.  Because this is what SJWs do.

He’s been a real bug-eyed bonanza for CNN and MSNBC. – The Daily Caller reports that California Congressman Adam Schiff, the ranking Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee, has now given a phenomenal 227 TV interviews since President Trump took office less than 14 months ago.  According to information compiled by the Republican National Committee, this means that Schiff has been on television more than 26 hours since last January 20.  For all you Millenials out there, that is twice as long as a full season of Game of Thrones.

Speaking of Mr. Schiff, it appears he may be delegating his long-time role as official leaker for the Democrats on the House Intel Committee.  When White House Communications Director Hope Hicks refused to answer certain questions related to the presidential transition process – which the Administration considers to be privileged – in testimony before the committee in closed session on Tuesday, that fact was leaked to the media before her testimony was over by Illinois Democrat Mike Quigley.  So perhaps Schiff has decided to share his leaky wealth.

Delta Airlines has gotten itself into a real pickle down in Georgia.  After Delta engaged in a round of corporate virtue signaling late last week, cancelling a long-time discount ticket arrangement for members of the NRA, the Georgia Senate took up a bill that would retaliate by cancelling property tax exemptions Delta enjoys at its Corporate headquarters in the state.  Delta officials spent all day Tuesday scrambling for a way to retain both their virtue signaling posture and their tax breaks, but thus far the state’s Republican officials are holding firm.

This action by the Republicans in the state is something that would have never taken place in the past.  Up until this time, timid Republicans just sat by and took insults like Delta’s action against the NRA meekly, hoping that, by remaining quiet and hunkered down under their desks, they could avoid any negative attention from the hostile fake news media.  But this is the age of Trump, and Republicans are finally learning from the President that they can win with the public by taking bold, principled stands.  It’s really sad that it has taken until the year 2018 for a very unconventional President to teach Republicans that taking bold action to support your friends is actually smart politics, but hey, better late than never.

For its own part, the NRA issued a statement in which it said that actions such as that taken by Delta are a “shameful display of civic and political cowardice.”  Kind of like the actions of the Broward County Sheriff’s department during the Parkland school shootings.  Couldn’t have said it better myself.

Just another day in singin’ the Delta blues America.

That is all.

Fisking The Fake News Media – Opportunities Abound

Today’s Campaign Update 

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

  • Well, we now know what occupies this clown’s mind. – After the magnificent NRA spokesman Dana Loesch said the organization plans to “fisk” the NYTimes, fake Times reporter Adam Goldman got on Twitter in a panic and wailed that the NRA wanted to sexually assault his newspaper.  Mr. Goldman admitted he thought Ms. Loesch had said “fist”.  The word “fisk” is a new media term for going through the fake media reports line by line and refuting them.  Odd that the Millenial Mr. Goldman is unfamiliar with that word.  But then, he obviously has other things on his mind.
  • Oh, you’re so sweet… Maxine Waters told the harpies on The View that, “when we finish with (impeach) Trump, we have to go and get Putin. He’s next.”  When faced with blank stares from the harpies, she then fumbled around and came up with the name of “Pence” to identify her next target.  This is who the Democrats call a “leader”.  Maybe Dana Loesch should target Maxine and The View with her fisking next.  Hilarity would definitely ensue.
  • Their Ad should read “Jim Acosta Diaper Hamper For Sale”… – Deadline Hollywood reports that AT&T is contemplating selling off CNN once its acquisition of CNN parent company Time Warner is consummated.  Really?  What self-respecting company is going to want to purchase a fake news channel that can’t beat re-runs of “Bewitched” in the ratings?  Of course, Jeff Bezos and Amazon could always buy CNN, since they’re buying everything else.  A CNN/Washington Post merger would be the fake news equivalent of the merger of Exxon and Mobil Oil.
  • Tired of Winning Yet?, Part I – The Trump economy created 209,000 jobs in July, beating estimates for the 6th straight month, and running the total jobs created since Donald Trump took office to more than 1 million.  The fake news media largely ignored the story, with Twitter going so far as to shadow ban positive tweets about the report.  No surprise here – the Democrats and fake news media know that they must keep the public focused on fake scandals in order to kill this presidency.  Reporting positive economic news is just not part of the narrative.
  • Tired of Winning Yet?, Part II – The Dow gained more than 70 points on Friday, marking the 8th straight day it has closed at a record high.  Given that the Dow has traditionally been a leading indicator of future economic growth, the Democrats and their fake journalist propaganda agents are going to have a great big pile of good economic news to try to ignore in the coming months.
  • Speaking of the Fake News Media, Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced on Friday that he is finally getting serious about identifying and prosecuting intelligence agency and White House employees responsible for the incessant leaking to major fake media outlets.  As part of that campaign to get serious, Mr. Sessions said he is considering issuing subpoenas to offending fake journalists and fake media outlets who rush to print or air classified information. “We respect the role that the press plays and will give them respect, but it is not unlimited. They cannot place lives at risk with impunity.”  Sure is nice to think that someone is finally going to attempt to enforce some accountability on fake journalists who abuse their privileges, but only time will tell if Mr. Sessions is truly serious here.  Hey, maybe Dana Loesch can help – she’s already got the NYTimes trembling at the knees.
  • This really isn’t rocket scienceThe UK Daily Mail reports that investigators are considering the use of lie detector tests as a tool to ID the leakers.  Here’s a suggestion:  apply the first two lie detectors to Susan Rice’s bestest buddy H.R. McMaster and Obama loyalist Hope Hicks, who somehow remains employed in the White House communications department, and see if the leaks from the West Wing don’t dry up completely over night.  I’ll even give you odds.

Just another day in all fake news, all the time America.

That is all.
