Today Was a Breathtaking Display of the Democrats’ and Media’s Rank Hypocrisy

The Evening Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

In 2003, after it had become apparent that the U.S. and allied forces who had invaded Iraq to remove Saddam Hussein were not going to find the vaunted weapons of mass destruction that served as the pretense for justifying the invasion, the fake U.S. and international news media, in coordination with the Democrat Party, demonized the U.S. intelligence community for its apparent failure to properly assess the threat.  The employees and leaders of the CIA, DIA, FBI, NSA and all the myriad other alphabet agencies that make up the U.S. intel apparatus were called incompetent, deceptive, even traitors by the fake media/Democrat propaganda complex for leading our country into an unjustified war.

Of course, no apologies were forthcoming when it later became obvious that Saddam had indeed had a stockpile of WMDs that he spirited off to Syria in advance of the allied invasion.  The left never apologizes for anything since no one in the fake news media ever demands it of them.

Those of us who defended the intel community at the time were also called all sorts of names, including but not limited to “traitors”, by these same Democrats and their media agents.  Fifteen years later, many of us are old enough to still remember all of that.

So it was a bit of a marvel today to see the fake news media/Democrat propaganda complex – including many of the same players from 2003 – demonize not the U.S. intel community, but President Donald Trump and his supporters after Trump criticized those myriad alphabet agencies during his press conference with Vladimir Putin.  In 2003, we were all traitors if we didn’t condemn the U.S. intel community, and today we’re all traitors if we do criticize them.

And this is all about Russia.  Many of us are also old enough to remember way back in 2012, when Barack Obama snarkily told Mitt Romney during a debate that “The 1980s called and they want their foreign policy back.”  That was Obama’s response to Romney’s contention that Russia constituted one of America’s foremost foreign adversaries.

Wait, isn’t that what the Democrats are all screaming today?  I know, right?

Yes, it is, but this was in 2012, barely a year after Obama, Hillary, Comey and Mueller had all participated in the selling of 20% of America’s uranium reserves to a Russian company that was just a front for Vladimir Putin, so the Democrats in those days felt the need to pretend we have no issues with Russia.  Six years later, they know that Putin knows everything about what happened back then and during the 2016 elections, and now feel desperate to de-legitimize him in the public’s mind in case he starts talking.

So now Putin and Russia are almost our awfulest, worstest enemies in the current media/Democrat talking point manual, just below President Trump, who is in fact our premier awfulest, worstest enemy.  Because President Trump also knows everything about what happened back then and during the 2016 elections, and well, he’s the President of the United States and will presumably at some point demand that Jeff Sessions and the Justice Department do something about it.  Make sense?

So, when President Trump said in the press conference that Putin made a “forceful” denial of Russian intervention in those 2016 elections, that is suddenly the worst thing that’s ever, ever, ever happened in all of American history going back to Columbus.

But hey, it was no big deal at all when Barack Obama, after meeting with Putin in 2016 and raising the subject of meddling with him, said of Putin’s denials that “He denies it. So the idea that somehow public shaming is gonna be effective, I think doesn’t read the thought process in Russia very well.”  Because back in 2016, all the fake reporters and Democrats assumed Hillary Clinton was going to win the election and whatever really did take place would just all be swept under the rug anyway.

But now it’s 2018 and Vladimir Putin knows everything that happened and Donald Trump knows everything that happened, and the fake reporters who helped facilitate it all and the Democrats who participated in it all are utterly, completely panicked and lashing out like never before.

And so you get tweets like this from Obama CIA Director and longtime communist voter John Brennan:

And this, from former Clinton advisor Peter Dau:

And this from supposedly bed-ridden John McCain, who was complicit in promoting the fake Trump Dossier during the 2016 campaign:

That statement, by the way, is at least 300 words long and was released within an hour after the end of the press conference.  Seems like a man with the energy to fully analyze an hour log press conference and whip out a 300-word statement in real time like that might also have the energy to travel to Washington and do his job.  But I digress.

At any rate, as so often happens, President Trump issued a tweet on this very subject as I was typing this piece.  Here it is:

But as I pointed out this morning, the fake news media, the Democrats and war mongers like Sen. McCain cannot have this “get along” nonsense happen – they all make their livings and control their power through the perpetuation of conflict and civil strife and violence.

Donald Trump is a 72 year-old multi-billionaire who decided to give up his retirement years in order to try to make life better for Americans.  Sometimes, it’s hard to imagine why he bothers.

Just another day in Donald Trump is doing his job for America.

That is all.

The G7 Summit: Trump’s Reykjavik Moment

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Someone really needs to relieve John McCain of his I-phone. – The guy whose rejection by the American people gave us Barack Hussein Obama got all upset on Saturday over President Trump’s refusal to bow to our Euro-Canadian betters at the G7 summit, and decided to send the following tweet:

There is absolutely no evidence whatsoever that a bipartisan majority of the American people remain pro-globalization, but nevermind, the Senator from the news media has decided it is so.  And so, the guy who could not win the presidency in his own right decides to undermine the trade policy efforts of the guy who was able to win the presidency.

Delete your account, Senator McCain, and while you’re at it, resign the senate seat that you have not manned for a single day this year.  It’s time.

We are witnessing history on a grand scale. – Make no mistake about it, this G7 meeting was the most consequential such meeting ever held, an event every bit as crucial for the future of the free world as Reagan’s walking away from Gorbachev’s siren song at Reykjavik in 1986.  This is true for one simple reason:  The most powerful nation present, by far, now refuses to speak with the forked tongue of globalism.  What’s more, probably the second most powerful nation present – at least economically – is also trending in that direction.

Take a look at this very telling picture:

The first thing you notice is that the only guy seated is completely dominating the room.  He’s the absolute center of everyone’s attention, the singular target of their pleading and scolding.  The second thing you notice is the body language of Shinzo Abe, the Prime Minister of Japan, is exactly the same as President Trump’s.  They’re both taking in the preaching of Macron and Merkel, and not buying a word of what they’re saying.

Why?  Because they both know that these European peacocks are powerless without the backing of the United States of America.  Abe, in fact, knows that is the truth about his own country, and has been the truth since the end of World War II.

Despite all the shrill denunciations of President Trump in the fake American news media today, every bit of real leverage in that room is on America’s side.  The leaders of the other G7 nations know that, they know their economies can’t survive without the American largesse and one-sided trade practices they’ve enjoyed for 70+ years, and that is why they so detest Donald Trump.  He refuses to speak the false language of globalism that Senator McCain wants him to speak and which every previous U.S. president since Reagan has gladly spoken.

Senator McCain and his fellow establishment Republicans, along with every Democrat and fake journalist practicing today would have Mr. Trump simply surrender all that leverage, all that power, in the name of globalism and their fool’s notion of “fairness.”

This President isn’t going to do that because, unlike his four immediate predecessors in office, he understands the crucial nature of leverage and power, and plans to keep using both to advance the interests not of some international “world order”, but of the American people.

Today, he arrives in Singapore for preparations for his June 12 summit meeting with the Crazy Little Fat Guy from North Korea, Kim Jong Un.  The very same establishment Republicans, Democrats and fake journalists and talking heads who for the past two days have scolded President Trump for having the  nerve to jealously protect American interests and deploy our country’s massive leverage in international negotiations will now shift to fretting that Mr. Trump is now going to somehow completely surrender all that leverage and power in his negotiations with the little Rocket Man.

The hilarious part of all of this is that they’re all too dim and lacking in self-awareness to even understand the massive inherent contradictions and rank hypocrisy in their own arguments.  There is absolutely no reason at all to believe that this President – in stark contrast to his predecessors – will do anything other than jealously protect American interests and strongly deploy U.S. leverage while at the same time giving Kim the opportunity to concede what he must concede in order to improve his and his country’s situation.

But hey, this is what these people do – what they have been doing for the last 30 years, in fact.  It’s all they know, and it’s why our country is in inherently unfair trade agreements with pretty much every other major economy on the face of the earth, and it’s why Trump inherited a situation in which North Korea had been able to build its own nuclear capability as the free world stood by and did nothing.

In the magnificent press conference he held as he exited the G7 to head for Singapore on Saturday, the President in fact placed the blame for all of this squarely where it belongs:  On America’s past leaders.  “They can’t charge us 270 percent and we charge them nothing, that doesn’t work anymore,” he said before adding that he believes these other countries are now, despite outward appearances, committed to moving toward fairer trade agreements.  “I don’t blame them, I blame our leaders,” he continued. “In fact, I congratulate leaders of other countries for so crazily being able to make those trade deals that were so good for their country and bad for the United States.”

Exactly.  Our leaders have been suckers for too long.

“We are like the piggy bank that everybody is robbing,” he added,  “And that ends.”

John McCain and his fellow globalists hate that, because treating the American taxpayer as a massive piggy bank is what they’ve done for their entire adult lives.  Trump threatens their entire world view, and that’s why they hate him so desperately.

It’s very important – and telling – to note that Ronald Reagan received exactly the same reaction from milquetoast Republicans and the fake American news media after he walked away from Reyjavik.  Less than 3 years after he did that, the Soviet Union collapsed and the Berlin Wall came down.

It’s isn’t going to take that long for Trump to get the more favorable trade deals he is seeking from these powerless apparatchiks.  It will probably all be done within a year.  Because at the end of the day, all the leverage and power are in America’s hands, and Trump isn’t going to surrender it.

Just another day of Trump putting America first, and all the globalists hating him for it.

That is all.

John McCain Thumbs His Nose at the Voters One Last Time

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Somehow, I don’t imagine the NFL owners are sweating this one too much. – Radical DNC vice-chairman Keith Ellison says he’s going to boycott the NFL this season over the league’s recent decision to force players to honor the American flag, or remain in the locker room while the national anthem his being played.

Did I mention that Ellison’s a Democrat?  And not just any old Democrat, but one of the Democrat Party’s national leaders?  I wanted to be sure everyone is clear on that:  He’s not just in the Party, but, as one of the Party’s highest leaders, reflective of the values of the Party’s membership.  Democrats – if they didn’t exist, no one in their right minds would dream of inventing them.

First they came for your plastic straws, then they came for your Q-tips. – The increasingly fascist overlords at the European Union have proposed to eliminate plastic items like soda straws, cotton buds, coffee stirs and balloon sticks in a litter reduction effort.  They claim these bans will only take place where “sustainable” (read:  ineffective) alternatives are available, but we all know that’s a damn lie.  Fines and other draconian penalties will follow the new policy within a matter of a few years if not mere months.  This is how leftists implement increasing controls over all our lives.

 

About that whole Hillary Clinton/Facebook thing… – In response to a question last Friday, the Pantsuit Princess told an audience that she wants to be CEO of Facebook.  Most observers just shrugged that off, saying hey, she was just answering a question, and anyway, that could never happen, so no biggie.

Right?  Well, no.  Not right at all.

We have to remember that the Fainting Felon hasn’t uttered an unscripted word in public in more than 30 years.  She doesn’t make off-hand comments, doesn’t give answers unless there is a purpose behind them.

Nor does she just leave the reporting following her public appearances to chance – her handlers and aides were no doubt meeting with compliant fake reporters afterwards to lobby them to emphasize the parts of the event they want emphasized.  From this event, the only remark by the Coughing Crook that made headlines was the line about wanting to be CEO of Facebook.  This is not an accident.

The evidence lies in how she expanded on her initial answer:

“It’s the biggest news platform in the world,” Clinton said. “Most people in our country get their news, true or not, from Facebook.”

“Now Facebook is trying to take on some of the unexpected consequences of their business model, and I for one hope they get it right because it really is critical to our democracy that people get accurate information on which to make decisions.”

This is the Cackling Crone attempting to condition the public to accept her as an arbiter of what constitutes “accurate information” on social media and/or media platforms.

Now, obviously, the Hacking Hag isn’t going to become Facebook’s CEO, but what about being named to its board of directors?  Or as some sort of special advisor?  Why not?  Or what about being named to some executive or advisory role with some other social media platform?

Facebook has already been loading up its executive staff with ex-Clintonistas and Obama thugs; the Obamas themselves are branching into producing programs for a terribly misguided Nexflix; it’s only natural for the Grasping Grifter to be reaching for her own cut of the pie.

Everything – literally everything – the Clintons say in public is designed to condition the public, either to rationalize something they’ve already done or normalize something one of them is about to do.  Trust me:  this whole “CEO of Facebook” nonsense is no different.

Keeping it all in the family. – If you’ve wondered why Arizona (and the New’s Media’s) Senator John McCain hasn’t done the right thing and given up the seat he’s clung to for 32 long years in the wake of his diagnosis with terminal brain cancer, it’s really pretty simple:  He wants to bequeath the seat to his wife, Cindy McCain.

Basically, it’s all about the state of Arizona’s rules for filling a senate seat that becomes vacant in the midst of a term.  If McCain were to vacate the seat prior to June 1, state law requires that a special election be held this coming November.  If he clings to the seat until that date, Arizona’s Republican Governor Doug Ducey gets to appoint McCain’s replacement, and that person will be allowed to serve unchallenged until a special election is held in November, 2020.

This person will then have more than two years to get him- or herself established in the job and thus enjoy all the advantages of incumbency when 2020 rolls around.  As always, the DC establishment protects its own, and in this instance, its own is John McCain’s wife Cindy, at least if you believe the reporting done in Monday’s story from Newsmax.

For all anyone outside of the McCain clan knows, Cindy McCain might hold political views more in line with Chuck Schumer than those of Mitch McConnell.  At best, we can hope she’s at least a RINO who will, like her husband, vote with the GOP caucus most of the time.  It’s also important to note here that John McCain, due to his tragic illness, has not set foot in Washington DC this entire year, a situation that has frequently left McConnell without an operational majority.  This is dereliction of duty, plain and simple.

So set are McCain, Gov. Ducey and the rest of the GOP’s good ol’ boys (and gals) club on keeping this senate seat in the McCain family that they are willing to deny the voters of Arizona any say whatsoever in determining McCain’s successor for the next two and a half years.  But then, John McCain has been thumbing his nose at the voters for 32 years and they just kept sending him back expecting a different result.  So at the end of the day, this final thumbing of McCain’s nose is exactly what Arizona’s Republican voters deserve.

Just another day in grifting Clintons and clinging McCains America.

That is all.

McCain’s Pettiness, Kerry’s Mendacity and Mueller’s Pettifoggery

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Bitter, petty and mean until his dying breath. – John McCain is settling old grudges in his final days, telling friends (who then leaked it all to the New York Times) that a) he wants Mike Pence to come to his funeral, but not President Trump, b) he wants Barack Obama to deliver a eulogy at his funeral, and c) he regrets choosing Sarah Palin to be his running mate in 2008.  Anyone surprised by any of this hasn’t been paying much attention to John McCain’s behavior over the last four decades.

Bitter, mendacious, and disloyal to the bitter end. – Meanwhile, John Kerry, 2004’s failed candidate for President and the failed Secretary of State who helped Barack Obama sell out America and Israel in the horrible executive agreement with Iran,  was revealed to have spent the past week in what loving liberals in the fake news media call “shadow diplomacy” and what any thinking person calls violations of the Logan Act.  Kerry has been running all over the place, meeting with officials from Iran and other countries in a desperate effort to salvage his pathetic, un-American legacy.

The Logan Act, of course, is an antiquated law that prevents private U.S. citizens from interfering with the foreign policy of the sitting president and his administration.  The law dates to the 18th century, and has never been enforced – if it had been, then people like Jimmy Carter, Bill Clinton and Jesse Jackson would all be serving time in Leavenworth right now.

So what’s the point here?  Well, if you remember the 10 days during which Obama minion Sally Yates served as acting Attorney General, she actually wanted to prosecute a genuine American hero, General Mike Flynn, for Logan Act violations because he was making introductory phone calls to leaders of other countries during the presidential transition, something every presidential transition team has done since the invention of the freaking telephone.  Every liberal talking head on CNN and MSNBC cheered Yates’s effort.

Trust me, you’re not going to see Sally Yates or any other liberal talking head advocating the charging of John Kerry with violations of the Logan Act for his latest acts of mendacity against our country.  Because liberal outrage is purely transactional.

Are we sure Robert Mueller is even qualified for his job? – Our jack-booted Special Counsel and his band of Clinton/Obama thugs suffered a second consecutive very bad day in court on Saturday, as yet another federal judge ruled against them, this time in a request for a trial delay.

Remember back on a Friday in February, when the very oily Rod Rosenstein held a hasty press conference to breathlessly announce that Mueller was issuing hilariously bogus indictments of 13 Russian defendants for conducting “social media warfare” on the U.S. during the 2016 campaign?  Remember how we speculated at the time that this was all done purely for show, an effort to influence public opinion, but safe in the belief that they’d never have to try to prove their goofy case in court because none of these defendants would ever show up for trial?

Yeah, that didn’t exactly work out for Rosenstein and Mueller.  See, one of the Russian defendants, a company called Concord Management, decided to show up and defend itself, pleading not guilty to all charges.  Hey, that’s not how this was all supposed to work, was it?

Suddenly, Mueller and his thugs find themselves in the uncomfortable position of having to demonstrate how 13 defendants somehow tilted a national election in a nation of 315 million people in favor of Donald Trump essentially by creating a bunch of fake accounts to send out messages on Twitter and Facebook on a total expenditure of a few million dollars.  That’s going to be sort of tough to prove, especially given that the messaging sent out from those fake accounts was both anti-Clinton and anti-Trump.

So the Mueller/Rosenstein strategy here was to delay, and they filed a delay request with the judge in the case, Trump appointee Dabney Friedrich, citing questions about whether or not Concord had ever been properly served in the case, a novel claim coming as it does from the prosecution.  The lawyers for Concord opposed the delay, saying the question of proper service is irrelevant and they are ready to go, and their client has a right to a speedy trial under the Constitution.

The lawyers hilariously said that “the briefing sought by the Special Counsel’s motion is pettifoggery,” and said that Mueller and his team of thugs are not entitled to their own “special rules.”

Unlike any Obama appointee, Judge Friedrich has actually read the Constitution, and thus agreed with the defense. So, either we will soon get to see the spectacle of how Mueller’s evil minions try to prove such obviously fake charges,  Mueller will decide to dismiss the case against Concord, or he and his minions will try to get their delay by appealing up the chain of courts.

I’m betting on the latter, but it sure would be fun to see this sham go to trial.

Just another day in the conspiracy to take down President Trump is falling apart America.

That is all.

London’s Fascists and America’s Warmongers Dominated the Sunday News Cycle

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

The fascists come out into full view in Jolly Old England. – As London has suffered through its radical Islamic-driven epidemic of knife killings over the last few years, I have occasionally joked here and on Twitter (@GDBlackmon) that the next thing you know, they’ll be banning knives in England.  Over the weekend, any further joking on that subject became moot, as London’s Mayor, Sadiq Khan, took to his own Twitter feed to issue the following edict:

When free societies force their law enforcement officials to behave as if they are incredibly stupid and have no means of identifying the real threat – all in the name of political correctness, of course – the “solution” inevitably ends up being that everyone ends up being treated as a threat.

We see this in our airport “security” measures, in the name of which we regularly witness the spectacle of Homeland Security officials patting down small babies and 90 year-old great grandmothers.

We see this happening in Parkland, Florida, where the school kids are now forced to use see-through backpacks by school and law enforcement officials intent upon continuing their policies of refusing to enforce the law against student criminals.

We see this in our regular gun control debates that invariably take place in the wake of mass shootings, shootings that almost always are committed by unstable individuals with long histories of interactions with law enforcement officials.

Of course, the politically-correct goal in all of these and many other instances in our idiotic society is to force law enforcement to treat every individual as if we are all equal threats, even though those officials have all sorts of means of identifying and acting against real threats if they were just allowed by law to do so.  But because those means might offend someone, everyone must be placed at higher risk.

The reality is that political correctness, and worshiping at the altar of some fool’s notion of “diversity” at any cost leads inevitably to the rise of fascism.  You don’t have to believe me, all you have to do is spend 15 minutes Googling “college campus political correctness” and browsing through the thousands of articles documenting “safe spaces”, the shutting down of any speech that might accidentally offend someone, classes and seminars that blame every evil in the world on white males, and on and on and on.

The notion of fascism has always been portrayed by our left-wing fake news media and entertainment industry as somehow coming out of the political right.  The truth is that fascism is and always has been the inevitable outcome of political leftism.

The fascists have come out into full view in Western Europe, as leftist leaders in England, Germany, France, Sweden and elsewhere implement policies to allow Europe’s native cultures to be overwhelmed and ultimately destroyed by radical Islam.  If you think that can’t come to the United States, well, just wait until the next time we decide to put a Democrat in the White House, and see what happens.  It won’t take long at all.

Four days after President Donald Trump instructed Defense Secretary James Mattis to present him with a plan to withdraw U.S. troops from Syria, dozens of people were killed in a chemical attack on the town of Douma.  As the Administration rushed to blame Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad for the attack – and the Russians for somehow facilitating it – all the usual suspect warmongers like Lindsey Graham, Susan Collins and John McCain rushed to the nearest TV camera or Twitter feed to advocate for not just keeping the U.S. military in Syria, but going to an all-out war footing there.

Senator Graham was so excited at the prospect of sending thousands of additional U.S. military personnel into harm’s way during a series of Sunday morning TV interviews that he could barely contain his glee.  He and McCain and Collins have truly never met a Middle Eastern civil war in which they did not want to involve America’s armed forces.

It was painfully obvious that none of them – nor any of the army of talking-head warmongers in the fake news media – took a moment to reflect on the incredibly convenient timing of this chemical attack, or to assess what possible motive Assad – or especially Putin – would have to commit such an atrocity less than 96 hours after President Trump had expressed his desire to get America’s military personnel safely out of that hellhole.  They never gave any consideration to the possibility that this atrocity might have actually been committed by Syrian rebels desperate to keep the U.S. involved in the theater, given that they have been losing badly in the conflict.

But this is not just about Syria here in the U.S.  All of these people – along with the entire Democrat Party and most of the fake news media – have been aggressively pushing President Trump into a war posture with Russia since even before he took office last year, forcing the President to abandon his goal of improving relations with Putin.  They no doubt leapt with joy Sunday evening as reports of missile strikes on Syria began to come across the news wires, thinking their tireless warmongering had already resulted in action by the Trump Administration.

The U.S. military denies it had anything to do with the air strikes, even though Syrian state television initially claimed otherwise.  Russia and Syria later accused Israel of conducting the attacks, which could be the case, since Israel has carried out air strikes into Sryia whenever they perceived a threat to their own country’s security.  As if this writing, the Israeli military has had no comment, but we will probably find out who conducted the bombing, or if it indeed even took place.

But back to the point of all of this, and that is that every thinking American ought to be taking a moment today to reflect on the fact that all these warmongers – which includes the neo-conservative element in the GOP, virtually the entire Democrat Party, and almost the whole of the nation’s fake news media – have spent the last 15 months doing everything they can to push President Trump into an increasingly aggressive and openly hostile posture towards Russia.

Isn’t it time we as a society started demanding these people tell us why that is?

Just another day in warmongering America.

That is all.

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.

Hillary Clinton: That Party Guest Who Just Won’t Shut Up and Leave

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

It’s not because you’re a woman.  It’s because you’re so incredibly tiresome. – The Pantsuit Princess, dressed in her favorite Dr. Evil attire, complained to an audience that she is tired of being told by fellow Democrats to stop running around the world blaming everyone but herself for her loss in the 2016 election.  The Fainting Felon whined that “no one ever told a man (who’d lost a presidential election) to go away.”  She then cited Al Gore, John Kerry, John McCain and Mitt Romney as examples.

Of course, as with literally every other word that escapes from the Coughing Crook’s lips in public, this latest in such a long, long list of complaints is an outright lie.  Of the four examples she cites, there were all manner of Democrats at the time telling the incessantly complaining and lying Al Gore and John Kerry to just go away and shut up already after they, too, went around the country whining about how mean ol’ George W. Bush had done all sorts of things to “steal” the 2000 and 2004 elections from them.  Gore was especially resented by Democrats who just wanted to move on for his refusal to just. shut. UP. before he decided to shift gears and go get rich from mounting his global warming scam.

As for McCain and Romney, well, they’re Republicans (ok, well, McCain is sort of a Republican, anyway), and when Republicans lose a presidential election, they accept their defeat and move on, so yes, no one had to tell them to go away.  Even Richard Nixon, after having the 1960 election stolen from him by John F. Kennedy’s mob associates, decided to just accept the result and stay quiet about it for the good of the country.

But of course, with the Grasping Grifter, the good of the country never comes to mind.  It’s all about her.  Everything is and always has been all about her.

In the end, Hillary is like that drunk guy at the party who just won’t go home, still sitting on your sofa at 3:00 in the morning asking for another beer and telling annoying stories you’ve heard a thousand times before.  You know, the guy you have to escort out your front door and shove into the Uber you called for him so he won’t kill himself trying to drive home.  That guy.

Just as that guy never goes away voluntarily, no one should expect the Whining Wino’s worldwide whining tour to end anytime soon.

If you want to own a Tesla, you probably better go get one soon. – The shaky electric car maker Tesla announced on Friday that it is having to recall almost half of the automobiles it has manufactured in its entire history due to corroding bolts that threaten the loss of power steering.

This new recall of more than 123,000 of the company’s Model S sedans comes amid ongoing issues that have prevented the production of more than a handful of the company’s new, more compact Model 3 sedans, and CEO Elon Musk’s struggles to raise more money to keep his chronically unprofitable company afloat.  This is a company whose business model only “works” when it is propped up by massive taxpayer subsidies and a stellar PR campaign consisting of a never-ending series of bold promises for the future.  Even with billions of dollars worth of those subsidies, Tesla has only managed to turn a “profit” in two calendar quarters during its entire existence, and the constant churning of unfulfilled promises suffers from the law of diminishing returns over time.

Tesla’s stock has lost 1/3rd of its value in recent weeks, and that selloff promises to continue next week after the latest recall announcement, which came after markets closed.  Barring an influx of new, highly-risky private equity, the company seems on the verge of running out of cash in the near future, and may have to resort to issuing a round of new stock, which would diminish the value of current shares even further.

Musk has repeatedly proven to be very adept at finding the money necessary to keep his company afloat in the near term, and will likely find a way to keep it going this time as well.  But in the longer term, Tesla sure looks like a proverbial house of cards that appears destined to at some point collapse under the weight of its fundamental inability to produce cars at a competitive price.  You know, like every other auto maker on the face of the earth must do in order to survive.

Just another day in the Pantsuit Princes won’t go away willingly America.

That is all.

Today’s The Day The Trump Tax Cuts Save The GOP Congress, If Only Congress Will Let Them

  • Hey, have you ever wondered whatever happened to that lovely, delightful Jill Stein?  You remember her, don’t you?  That “Green” Party candidate who received some rounding error-level number of votes in last year’s presidential election, and then held the country hostage for a month while demanding recounts in Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin?  Oh, yeah, THAT Jill Stein? Isn’t she a pistol?
  • Well, it turns out she is alive and sort of well, but not completely well, because the Washington Post is reporting today that she is now under investigation by the Robert Mueller Witch Hunt, er, coup d’etat, er, Special Counsel operation.  Why?  Well, I don’t really care.  I just love the poetic justice involved here.  You go, Bob.  You’ve finally stumbled across your witch.
  • Speaking of Witch Hunts, a couple dozen protesters who don’t want their taxes cut found themselves hunting around Capitol Hill for Nancy Pelosi Monday afternoon, when the House Minority Leader failed to show up for their sparsely attended event at which they planned to express their righteous outrage at having to give less money to the federal government.  Pelosi had agreed to attend the event when she was told that hundreds of her fellow leftist nitwits were going to show up for it, but when that crowd failed to materialize, well, San Fran Nan flew the coop.  No word whether or not she was riding a broom when she did.
  • Justice Department Lawyer Bruce Ohr, recently demoted when it was revealed that he held regular meetings with the sleazy operatives of the Fusion GPS firm – where his wife was employed – during last year’s presidential campaign, had his scheduled testimony before the Senate Intelligence Committee postponed until later this week.  Committee members rescheduled his appearance after they received a new tranche of long-withheld documents from the Justice Department earlier in the day, and they wanted time to review those documents before hearing from Mr. Ohr.
  • Another cog in the DOJ Deep State cabal, Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe, is scheduled to testify later today before the House Intelligence Committee, in what is supposed to be a closed-door session.  It will be interesting to see if McCabe turns up, and how long it takes California Democrat Adam Schiff or some other Democrat to leak the substance of the hearing to CNN if he does.
  • Meanwhile, today is Tax Cut Day in the United States Congress.  Yes, friends, the Republican majorities in both houses of congress, who have been making unfulfilled promises to you for eight long years, are finally, at long last, on the verge of actually keeping one of them!  Yay!
  • The clincher for getting this largest tax cut in American history sent to the President’s desk appeared to come late Monday when the fakest fake Republican in the Senate, Maine Senator Susan Collins, announced that she would vote ‘yes’ on the bill.  Once it became clear that Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has the critical mass of needed votes, Senator From the News Media John McCain fled town so he wouldn’t be a part of a resounding success for President Donald Trump (I still never tire of typing those three words).
  • In all seriousness, this is life or death for the Republican Party’s congressional future.  Get it done, and you have a chance to hold your majorities in both houses of congress in the 2018 mid-term elections, maybe even increase your Senate advantage.  Fail, and you have no chance.  Literally no chance at all – 2018 would become an inevitable wave election favoring the Democrats if this vote fails.
  • Because the fake news media has demonized the bill with talking points coordinated with the Democrat Party – its standard procedure in such matters – the bill does not currently poll well.  But wait until February, when the new tax withholding tables go into effect, and literally every working American sees that his or her paycheck has increased dramatically, and those polls will turn right around.
  • Once that happens, you’ll see the same thing start happening to those “generic congressional preference” polls, which lately have shown the Democrats with a 7-10 point advantage.  The economy is already booming, with the New York Fed now projecting 4% economic growth for the 4th quarter.  More and more Americans are going back to work every day now, and if they also see they are taking home more of their hard-earned money thanks to a bill that every Democrat opposed, the complexion for the 2018 mid-terms will turn around on a dime.
  • Today’s vote is one of the most crucial votes in the history of the GOP.  No wonder John McCain wants no part of it, and we aren’t hearing a peep of support from Mitt Romney or George W. Bush.  That tells you all you need to know about the quality of “conservatives” the Republican Party had been nominating for the presidency before Donald Trump came along.

Just another day in Donald Trump’s America.

That is all.

The Fake News Media Is Poisoning Our Society

Today’s Campaign Update

  • The fake journalists at the Washington Post took a day off from scandal-mongering and published a hilariously absurd puff piece about the poor, poor Podesta brothers, John and Tony, and their fall from grace.  The Post’s fake reporters appear to be on the verge of immolating themselves over the fact that Tony Podesta’s high-powered lobbying firm is apparently closing its doors on November 15, as its principal has become at least nominally entangled in Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s “investigation”.  I’ll believe that Podesta is actually in jeopardy in any way whenever charges are actually filed, which of course has yet to happen.
  • As for John Podesta, the Post portrays him as the quiet brother, the brother who would never, never, ever do anything wrong or unethical, despite the fact that the public has been treated to hundreds of his emails that indicate otherwise.  John Podesta, of course, was campaign chairman for the pathetic Hillary Clinton fiasco, and anyone who voluntarily entangles themselves with the Clintons gets the sort of reputational stains they deserve.
  • Speaking of the Mueller investigation, which is supposedly about allegations that the Trump campaign attempted to collude with Russia during the 2016 elections, President Trump chatted with Vladimir Putin for a few minutes at the APEC meetings on Sunday, and all the fake journalists in our fake news media predictably went berserk.  The President was especially slammed for saying that he believes Putin means what he says when he denies having made any effort to influence the U.S. election.
  • Mr. Trump later clarified that statement, saying that, while he believes Mr. Putin sincerely believes what he says, that doesn’t mean that other Russian elements did not spread propaganda during our elections, something they’ve been doing for decades.  Given that no one has presented the public with a shred of evidence personally implicating Putin in any of the Russian influence allegations, that is a very reasonable position for the President to take.
  • The President also very effectively responded to the uproar with a series of tweets, where he now has 280 characters instead of just 140 to make his points:
    • “Met with President Putin of Russia who was at  meetings. Good discussions on Syria. Hope for his help to solve, along with China the dangerous North Korea crisis. Progress being made.”
    • “When will all the haters and fools out there realize that having a good relationship with Russia is a good thing, not a bad thing. There always playing politics – bad for our country. I want to solve North Korea, Syria, Ukraine, terrorism, and Russia can greatly help!”
    • “Does the Fake News Media remember when Crooked Hillary Clinton, as Secretary of State, was begging Russia to be our friend with the misspelled reset button? Obama tried also, but he had zero chemistry with Putin.”
  • No rational person would find anything unreasonable in any of that, but our fake national news media has collectively portrayed it as the brayings of a mad jackass.
  • We are in a very, very dangerous place in our country’s relationship with Russia.  We have an entire political party – the Democrats – virtually our entire news media establishment, and rancid Republican war-mongers like John McCain and Lindsey Graham, all of whom appear to have a goal of pushing the United States into a shooting war with Russia.  They have all been trying to push us down that road for several years now, and appear to be literally insane with rage that our current POTUS thinks it would be a better idea to form a constructive relationship with such a powerful adversary.
  • Given that President Trump is correct when he says that Russia’s interests are aligned with American interests when it comes to terrorism, Syria, North Korea and other matters, there is absolutely no reason why our country should be constantly assuming the hostile posture towards Russia that the Democrats/media/RINO war-mongers promote.
  • Our national news media is poisoning our society.  They are endangering our future, and the futures of our children and our grandchildren with their constant collusion with the war-mongers and other swamp creatures in our government.  We are going to soon reach a crisis point at which the threat they represent must somehow be dealt with effectively, or we will end up in a conflict that need not happen.

Just another day in poisonous fake news media America.

That is all.
