Mike Murphy Rolls Out Another Example of NeverTrump Nitwittery

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Hey, everybody, Mike Murphy’s organized a new gig for himself, aren’t you excited?  Um, well, who’s this Mike Murphy, you ask? Are you kidding me?  You don’t know who Mike Murphy is?  Wow, where have you been?

Ok, seriously, there isn’t really much reason why you should have any idea who this guy is, unless you make a habit of studying epic failure.  Murphy, a guy who bills himself as “one of the Republican Party’s most successful political media consultants,” is so darn successful that he boasts a list of past clients that include failed 1996 presidential nominee Bob Dole, failed 2008 nominee John McCain, failed 2012 nominee Mitt Romney, and of course, epically failed 2016 GOP nomination candidate JEB!  Yes, that JEB!, the JEB! who wasted well over $150 million one one of the most hilariously awful media campaigns in modern times, the JEB! who began the race as the overwhelming favorite to claim the GOP nomination and ended up having to pull out after the South Carolina primary without having even come close to winning a single contest.

Yes, this is THAT Mike Murphy.  That guy.

This is the Mike Murphy who last August told CNN’s fake interviewer Chris Cillizza that “Post-election Donald Trump will be alone, despised by his own party, a failure rebuked by the nation, and politically neutered even more than he is today.”  Today, 7 months later, Donald Trump has a job-approval rating higher than Barack Obama held at the same point in his first term in office, is supported by about 85% of the GOP voter base, has accomplished more in his first 14 months in office than any modern president and is presiding over a booming economy that is achieving 3% growth quarter after quarter and is nearing full employment.

This Mike Murphy guy will never make a living as a sooth-sayer.  I’d say he should keep his day job if he weren’t such a failure at it.

But Mike Murphy clearly has a talent, and that talent happens to be convincing high-profile Republican political candidates to let him waste millions and millions of their dollars on epically-failed media campaigns.  Just ask Meg Whitman, who let Murphy waste $150 million of her own money on an utterly failed run for California governor in 2010.

So, why am I talking about Mike Murphy this morning?  Because Mr. Murphy has decided that President Trump needs to face a GOP opponent in the 2020 Republican nomination contest, and he is just the guy to manage the campaign to mount that challenge.  To that end, the self-absorbed clown has formed what he is calling the “NeverTrump War Room,” from which he will presumably raise a bunch of money from the same class of big-money idiots who funded his JEB! brainchild, and which he will use to attract some political juggernaut – like Arizona Senator Jeff Flake and his 18% constituent job approval rating – to challenge the incumbent President in his pursuit of a second term.

Bragging that “after 30 years in politics I’ve seen how fast support can crumble,” – a personal talent to which Dole, McCain, Romney, Whitman and JEB! can certainly attest – Murphy speculates that all the agonisties currently tormenting the President will turn out to be just too much for rank and file Republicans to take come 2020, and they will be pining for a new candidate to lead them out of the low-tax, 3% economic growth and 3% unemployment “wilderness” that NeverTrump morons so detest.

When that happens, Mike Murphy plans to be right there waiting, with a NeverTrump war chest overflowing with money to be wasted on some famous white guy who sounds suspiciously like…wait for it…oh, you have to wait for this one…MITT ROMNEY!  I’m not kidding – here it is in Murphy’s own words from his Politico column of March 28:

“Who could run? It’s far too early to name names, but for a tested, highly competent potential contender with immaculate conservative credentials, I’d keep an eye on political developments in Utah.”

But hey, if the GOP voter base turns out to not exactly be pining for a rerun of Romney’s stunningly inept campaign of 2012, Murphy has another model for the perfect candidate, who unsurprisingly sounds exactly like Sen. Flake, who became so detested by voters in his home state he decided to not even seek re-election:

“Another potential archetype would be a candidate promising a return to conservative ideological purity after three big-spending years of braying populism. There is no shortage of potential “real conservatives”—many promising generational change as well—itching to run for president.”

It is this special kind of “genius” – the kind that can continue to milk lame-brained wealthy Republican donors of millions and millions of dollars with promises of this kind of epic failure-in-the-making – that sets Mike Murphy apart from his competitors.  You know, those competitors who actually like to win elections from time to time.

So, will Murphy succeed in his goal to raise another couple hundred million to waste on yet another epic failure in 2020?  The smart money says there is plenty of stupid money out there to allow Murphy to extend his epic losing streak.

The smart money also says that President Trump isn’t real concerned about the NeverTrump War Room.  In fact, he probably welcomes it, since it shows his enemies in the Republican Party still have no clue whatsoever.

Just another day in NeverTrump nitwittery America.

That is all.

Fake Religions, Fake Indians and Fake Republicans

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

The Church of Scientology is getting its own TV channel.  Yay!  The favored fake religion of Hollywood’s mindless nitwits announced over the weekend that it will begin rolling out content today on Apple TV, Roku and DirectTV.  And guess what?  I have DirecTV at my home, so I’ll get to watch it for you and give you a review!  Ok, just kidding – the little wifey and I are in the middle of a 7-season marathon of Homeland, so there will be no time at all for Scientology TV.  No word on what the new programming on the new channel will consist of, but it’s a very safe bet that a bunch of really bad flicks by Tom Cruise and John Travolta will be prominently featured in the mix.

Speaking of outright frauds, Elizabeth Warren was challenged on several Sunday morning fake news programs to just take a DNA test and put this whole fake Indian thing to bed.  Just spit into a cup, seal it up, mail it in to that online DNA testing service, and two weeks later it will all be over.  And hey, the chances are really, really good that the results she gets back are going to claim she has some small percentage of Indian blood in her, because that’s what that service does:  It tells everyone that they come from pretty much everywhere.

But oh, no, not Fauxcahontas.  She’s not having any of that.  She is so certain of her Indian blood because of “family lore” and all, that she just doesn’t need to have any proof.  Of course, the truth is most likely that the shameless phony has been lying about it all these years and she’s scared to death that she will be the 1 in 100 people who get results back denying that she has any Indian DNA at all.

The fake Indian Senator from Massachusetts also stated definitely, at least half a dozen times, that “I am not running for president” when asked by her Sunday interviewers.  Given her history, we can take this to be a definitive statement that she is indeed planning to run for the Democrat nomination in 2020.

Boy, that Democrat presidential field is just going to be chock full of fakes, phonies and frauds in two years.  In addition to the fakest Indian in America, President Trump will also be challenged by a field that will include 80 year-old commie Bernie Sanders, 77 year-old hair implant poster child, serial woman groper and nude swimmer Joe Biden, the latest reboot of the Pantsuit Princess, the completely deranged Corey Booker, the even more completely deranged Chicago congressman Luis Gutierrez, the amazingly unaccomplished Kamala Harris, and Oprah.  No word if Bill Nye the fake science guy will join the fun, but hey, he certainly has the career fraud qualifications down pat, so why not?

In case you missed it, the Democrat Party took a first step towards reducing the number of “super delegates” to its 2020 convention over the weekend, a move that will likely end up reducing their numbers by about half.  This will make it a little tougher for the Coughing Crook to rig the nominating process again in 2020 like she and Debbie Wasserman Schulz and the DNC did in 2016.  So we can expect even more fakes, phones, frauds and freaks to line up in the coming months to pursue the party’s nomination, now that there might be a 40% chance the Clintons won’t rig the thing again.

Speaking of fakes, phonies and frauds, RINO Senator Jeff Flake came to Chuck Todd’s defense on NBC’s “Meet the Press” on Sunday, after President Trump had referred to the show’s host as a “sleepy sonofabitch” during his Saturday rally in Pittsburgh.  The terminally whiny Sen. Flake actually blamed President Trump’s calling out of the fake news media in the U.S. as causing the arrests of journalists in other countries.  No, really, that’s what he said:

“We have a record number of journalists being jailed overseas, some on false news charges, echoing the phrases he uses. I don’t think it’s a responsible thing to do. I really don’t.”

First of all, we don’t have a “record number” of journalists being jailed overseas.  It’s pretty likely that the “record” for that particular exercise was established during the Bolshevik revolution in Russia a century ago.  Second, tin pot dictators and communist thugs all over the world have been arresting journalists they don’t like all throughout human history, so claiming this is something that just started when Donald Trump took office 14 months ago is more dishonest than any claim Elizabeth Warren has ever made about her fake Indian ancestry.

Third, note to “Meet the Press”:  Jeff Flake has a  public approval rating in his own home state that consistently hovers below 20%.  Nobody cares what Jeff Flake thinks or says.  If you’re going to have a token fake Republican show up on your program, why not invite Lindsey Graham or Susan Collins?  They at least could win an election in their own state if they had to run again today.

Just another weekend of fakes, phones and frauds parading across our TV screens America.

That is all.

If Democrats Didn’t Exist, We Wouldn’t Want to Invent Them

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Tired of all this Winning yet? – The Daily Caller reports that, in the cable news ratings race, fake news king CNN did not have a single program in its entire lineup that ranked among the top 20 during the month of February.  When the bad guys are losing, the country is #Winning.

They call it the Yu Darvish 2-inning start bug. – The Los Angeles Dodgers reported that a “flu-like” illness that was causing fevers and vomiting had ravaged dozens of their players Thursday evening, causing Manager Dave Roberts to scramble to find enough players to man the team’s spring training game on Friday.  No word if the flu struck after the team had re-watched film of Game 7 of last year’s World Series against the Houston Astros, but it seems likely.

RINOs in action. – Arizona Senator Jeff Flake, of course appearing on CNN (because who else would bother to interview Jeff Flake?), told his fake interviewer David Axelrod that he fully expects President Trump to have a Republican primary challenger in the 2020 race for the GOP nomination.  The Hill, which is fast becoming the web-based fake news challenger to CNN, thought this was newsworthy, which is almost inexplicable given that Flake announced his retirement late last year because his public approval rating in his home state was hovering in the low teens.

Justice Department leaks move into the theater of the absurd. – The New York Times, Washington Post and Associated Press all “broke” a story on Friday asserting that former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe will be accuse of making improper leaks by Inspector General Michael Horowitz in his report to be released in the coming days.  The “sources” of those stories were – guess what? – improper leaks by personnel within the Justice Department and/or the FBI.  It is highly doubtful any of the liberals at any of those fake news organizations are self-aware enough to understand the high degree of humor and irony present in this situation.

Speaking of theater of the absurd, PJ Media reports that the Obama holdovers at the Library of Congress have invited freaking Bill Nye the Science Guy to speak at a symposium on how to protect our planet from an asteroid collision.  I kid you not.  Mr. Nye, an engineer who has posed as a scientist on television as a host of kid’s shows for 30 years, and more recently become a dedicated climate scammer because it pays better, will be on the agenda with a real scientist, astronomer Dr. Amy Mainzer.  This is a disgrace, and the people who organized this program should be fired without severance pay.

Democrats in action. – Speaking of liberals with no sense of humor, the pinheads at Facebook issued an apology on Friday for threatening to censor a Christian satire site called the Babylon Bee.  Facebook’s evil minions were acting on a tip from their fellow humorless liberal evil minions at the “fact-checking” Snopes website, which had flagged the Babylon Bee as being “fake news.”  Well, of course it’s fake news, you mindless simpletons – it’s SATIRE.  Dear God, people.

More Democrats in action. – Tamika Mallory, who, along with radical Islamist Linda Sarsour was one of the main organizers of the 2017 “women’s march”, came under fire on Friday for having attended a speech by the heinous anti-semite bigot Louis Farrakhan.  She naturally defended herself by…wait for it… endorsing anti-semite hate speech on Twitter.  I swear I don’t make this stuff up.

Still more Democrats in action. – But hey, you’ll have to excuse Ms. Mallory and other Democrat voters for their bigotry.  After all, they’re just emulating their elected leaders.  Take Chuck Schumer for example.  On Wednesday, Schumer announced in the well of the U.S. Senate that he was voting against confirmation of a Trump judicial nominee for the simple reason that he is white.  Oh, he put all sorts of flowery liberal “need for diversity, yada yada yada, blah-blah-blah” rhetoric around it, but there is no escaping the fact that it was a stunningly racist statement.  But it’s always been ok for Democrats to be racist;  otherwise, we’d have never had the Ku Klux Klan.

Just another day in absurd Democrat theater America.

That is all.

Russia Collusion Suddenly Doesn’t Matter To Your Progressive Friends Anymore

Today’s Campaign Update 

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

  • The fake news media has a new favorite Republican senator.  John McCain is pissed. – RINO Senator Jeff Flake became the latest Republican to announce he would not be seeking re-election in 2018, in the process earning the praise of every leftwing fake journalist in Washington because he bashed President Donald Trump (I never tire of typing that) in his going-away speech.  Flake joins Bob Corker in making up false reasons for his decision not to run, claiming to be just too darn principled to serve under this President when in fact he is pulling out because he’s so far behind his likely primary opponent in current polls that he has literally no chance of winning.
  • All of this Trump bashing by weak-kneed RINOs no doubt has long-time GOP Senator From The News Media John McCain even more cranky than usual this morning.  He’s already spent the last month fighting Corker for 10 minute segments on MSNBC and CNN and The View, and now he’s going to have to spend the coming weeks fighting both Corker and the very flakey Flake.  The RINO competition for these precious TV segments has become so fierce that poor Lindsey Graham has taken to playing golf with the President rather than even trying to wedge his way in.  But hey, they all got their “principles”, and isn’t that great?
  • “Russia Collusion?  What Russia Collusion?  I don’t see no Russia Collusion.” – Don’t look now, but all of your progressive friends – if indeed you still have any progressive friends – are about to develop a sudden case of Russia collusion amnesia now that the Washington Post has reported the news that both the Hillary Clinton Campaign and the Democrat National Committee (DNC) helped to fund the infamous fake “Trump Dossier” that we are slowly finding out formed up the entire basis for the whole Democrat/fake news media Russia Collusion fantasy play we have been bombarded with for the past 11 months.  We need to remember that much of that “Dossier” was filled with false information provided by the government of…wait for it…RUSSIA!  Thus, the first real, actual information we have indicating one of the 2016 presidential campaigns colluded with Russia indicates that the collusion came from The Most Corrupt Woman In America and her entire political party apparatus.
  • So today, you can expect all of your progressive friends, acquaintances and relatives to be parroting the Democrat/Clinton talking points on this matter, because of course that is what they do every day.  Those talking points will be things like, “well, nothing about doing that is technically illegal,” and “well, that was done by some of Hillary’s campaign operatives, but Hillary didn’t know anything about it,” and “golly, Hillary didn’t collude with Russia, she just colluded with those Fusion GPS guys, and there’s nothing wrong with that,” and “what about Rep. Clowny McPartyBarn and what she says about Trump’s call to that poor widow?”, and the standard favorite “but…but…but…Trump sucks!!!!” and on, and on, and on.
  • Et tu, Tom Perez? – Or maybe they’ll all parrot the hysterically, if unintentionally funny statement that came out from the DNC this morning:  ““Tom Perez and the new leadership of the DNC were not involved in the decision-making regarding Fusion GPS, nor were they aware that Perkins Coie was working with the organization.”  That is so.  Damn.  AWESOME.  So, the new, utterly failing leadership of the DNC is just going to toss the old failed leadership, i.e., the already scandal-plagued Debbie Wasserman Schulz, right under the bus.  Fantastic, even by Democrat standards.
  • The second part of the DNC statement is even more hilarious:  “But let’s be clear, there is a serious federal investigation into the Trump campaign’s ties to Russia, and the American public deserves to know what happened.”  Oh, yeah, that would be the “serious” investigation that has as its entire forming basis this fake dossier that was funded by you guys, right?  The “serious” investigation being conducted by a bunch of Democrat partisan hacks who poured money into the Clinton campaign and the DNC and thus indirectly helped to fund this fake “dossier” themselves, right?  The “serious” investigation that has dragged on this entire year and is yet to reveal a single bit of evidence that anyone associated with the Trump campaign “colluded” with the Russians in any way, shape or form, right?  You mean that “serious” investigation?
  • One other little tidbit contained in the 4th paragraph the WaPo report is not getting as much attention:  “Before that agreement, Fusion GPS’s research into Trump was funded by an unknown Republican client during the GOP primary.”  Can’t wait until we find out who that “unknown Republican” was.  We know, for example, that James Comey became aware of the “dossier” when he was handed a copy of the final product by – guess who? – cranky old John McCain.  It would be really interesting to know if the reason why McCain was in possession of such a sensitive, if fake, document was because he helped pay for it.
  • The fun on this deal is just beginning.  Somebody go pop some popcorn.

Just another day in Russia Collusion doesn’t matter to our progressive friends anymore America.

That is all.

All Fake News, All The Time: This Is CNN

Today’s Campaign Update 

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

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

Just another day in Fake News Media America.

That is all.
