The Senate’s Predictable Abject Failure on Immigration Shows Democrats Aren’t Our Only Problem

Do Democrat candidates really want to stake their prospects on San Fran Nan? – The demented face of the Democrat Party was on full display for reporters yesterday, as San Fran Nan stuttered, stammered, spasmed, muttered and facial ticked her way through a press availability.  The American Mirror captures the horror show that the rest of the fake news media refuses to report on.  This is who Democrats want to replace Paul Ryan as Speaker of the House next year.  Frightening.

Man, nobody could’ve seen this one coming.  Oh, wait…:  With Mitt Romney scheduled to announce his candidacy for the U.S. Senate from Utah today via a video posted social media, he has gotten his marching orders from the reliable fake journalists at the Washington Post.  The post has a story this morning with a headline that reads, “With McCain retreat, some look to Romney to carry traditional Republican torch…”  So, the Washington swamp demands that the failed 2012 GOP presidential nominee replace the failed and fading 2008 GOP presidential nominee as the Senate’s biggest squish RINO.  Somewhere, Lindsey Graham is jumping up and down with his hand in the air, shouting “Hey!  Hey! Hey!  Remember me???”

Oprah and Mike Pence, birds of a Christian feather. – Just two days after The View host Joy Behar insulted every Christian in America by saying that Mike Pence’s habit of talking to Jesus constitutes “mental illness”, Oprah Winfrey told an interviewer she suffers from mental illness as well.  In an interview with 60 Minutes Overtime, she told CBS’s fake reporter that she has not heard the call to higher office: “And wouldn’t I know? Because if God actually wanted me to run, wouldn’t God kinda tell me? And I haven’t heard that,” she says.  Man, Joy Behar, who has refused to apologize to Pence on-air for her disgusting remarks – remarks that, if uttered about a Muslim would have seen her fired from her job before she could walk off the set – now has an Oprah problem.  And nobody wants an Oprah problem.

So, this week’s senate “debate” over the DACA “kids” (Average Age:  26) and other immigration issues has been an abject failure, as the Campaign Update told you it would be two weeks ago.  In fact, Democrats ensured it was a joke from the very beginning.  After spending a month whining about wanting a “wide-ranging debate” on the floor of the senate on immigration issues, the Democrats had entered into their first of several filibusters to prevent debate within a few minutes.  They were never serious on this issue to begin with, and they never will be.

The Democrats don’t really care about DACA recipients other than to the extent they can get them immediate amnesty and turn them into reliable dependents on the government and thus reliable Democrat voters.  Barring enough RINOs agreeing to that – and lord knows, Lindsey Graham, John McCain and Susan Collins worked as hard as they could trying to get that done this week – the Democrats are quite content to just keep DACA alive as a campaign issue for the midterm elections.

The great news for Republicans is that the Democrats are wrong on this issue – it is a clear political loser for them at this point, especially in the congressional districts that are actually competitive.  So President Trump is just fine with allowing DACA to run out on March 5 and using it to pound Democrat congressional candidates over the head with for the next 8 months through Election Day in November.  This issue, combined with the ability for Republican candidates to show San Fran Nan’s snarling face and stammering voice on every campaign ad will, if used properly, probably ensure the GOP will retain its majority in the U.S. House and increase its majority in the Senate by 5 or 6 seats.

The bad news for Republicans is that so many of their members in the Senate remain RINO sellouts on the immigration issue that the President’s submitted plan that would resolve DACA, enhanced border security, restrictions on chain migration and elimination of the insane “diversity lottery” couldn’t even get 40 votes.  That just shows us all how entrenches the DC swamp creatures  are on this issue.

For those interested, here are the names of the 14 RINOs who still want to destroy this country’s culture at the altar of open borders:

John Barrasso

Susan Collins

Steve Daines

Mike Enzi

Jeff Flake

Jim Moran

Lisa Murkowski

Ben Sasse

John Thune

That’s 10.  There are four others – Mike Lee, Ted Cruz, Rand Paul and Jim Inhofe – who voted “no” on the bill because they oppose even the 12-year path to citizenship offered to DACA “kids” in the bill.  It’s probably safe to assume that those four would have been “yes” votes on this comprehensive approach if it had a chance of passage.

If you’re wondering, John McCain is still home in bed, and Lindsey Graham voted for the bill for his own mysterious reasons.

Regardless, what the vote on the President’s plan – which was sponsored by Iowa Republican Chuck Grassley – shows us is that our problems on the nation’s broken immigration system are not limited to the disloyal Democrat Party.  There are plenty of Republicans who remain big roadblocks on getting anything real done.

Perhaps some aggressive executive orders on the matter are in order as of today.

Just another day in the DC Swamp is really, really hard to drain America.

Sally Yates Now Becoming a Central Figure in the Deep State Cabal

Former Obama Deputy Attorney General and very brief Acting Attorney General in the first days of the Trump Administration, Sally Yates, is suddenly becoming a major person of interest in the study of the actions of the Deep State Cabal, that group of corrupt FBI and DOJ officials who apparently attempted to tilt the 2016 election to Hillary Clinton and since have worked to undermine the Trump presidency at every turn.

Ms. Yates had a brief moment in the spotlight back on January 30, 2017, when she was summarily fired by President Trump for refusing to enforce his initial travel ban order.  She then got another bit of sunshine on May 8, when she testified before the Senate Judiciary Committee about the role she played in concocting the “Logan Act” violation scheme that ultimately trapped General Mike Flynn, and led to his guilty plea for lying to the FBI.  Notably, the sentencing for that plea is currently on hold until at least May at the request of Special Counsel Robert Mueller, who finds his reason for being in his current role increasingly under political fire and public suspicion.

But back to the erstwhile Ms. Yates, who became such a cause celebre’ in leftwing circles for her defiant testimony last May.  Little had been heard from her since that time, but two new revelations this week place her right back in the middle of things.

First is the nutty email that Susan Rice sent to herself at 12:15 on January 20, 2017 – which I lampooned in this morning’s Campaign Update – that was uncovered this week by Senators Lindsey Graham and Charles Grassley.   In a very ham-handed CYA move, Ms. Rice claims that President Obama, in discussing his senior staff’s interactions with the Trump Transition team in a meeting on January 5, instructed everyone present to do it all “by the book.”  Obviously, something else took place in that meeting that had Ms. Rice extremely concerned – thus, the CYA email.  Notably, she lists other senior officials being present in that meeting, including Joe Biden, James Comey and – guess who? – Deputy AG Sally Yates.  Golly.

Then there’s yesterday’s piece from Byron York that discusses the fact that, in March 2017, James Comey testified to congress to the effect that the FBI agents whose interview with General Flynn in late January led to Flynn’s guilty plea told Comey that they did not believe Flynn had misled them during that interview.  Comey also told congress that those agents saw nothing wrong with the outreach conversations Flynn had conducted during December and early January with Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak.

It was only after Ms. Yates concocted her absurd scenario that Flynn was somehow in violation of the 218 year-old Logan Act, a law that has never in U.S. history been enforced, mainly because it is very likely unconstitutional, that Flynn suddenly came under harsh criticism in the fake news media and was ultimately fired by the President.

As York Reports:

So Comey went to Capitol Hill in March to brief lawmakers privately. That is when he told them that the FBI agents who interviewed Flynn did not believe Flynn had lied, or that any inaccuracies in Flynn’s answers were intentional. And that is when some lawmakers got the impression that Flynn would not be charged with any crime pertaining to the Jan. 24 interview.

And yet, with the Mueller Special Counsel staff floundering around, desperate to pin something on somebody, Flynn ultimately ends up pleading guilty in November to lying to the FBI.  So, either Comey lied to congress last March – which, given the multiple such instances we’re already aware of, certainly would not be surprising – or FBI SuperAgent Peter Strzok and the other FBI agents present in that meeting with Flynn lied to Comey – which also would surprise no one.

Regardless, the timing of all these various events:

  • the January 5 meeting that Susan Rice was so worried about she felt the need to do some CYA for Obama 15 minutes after her job had ended;
  • the December/January calls between Flynn and Kislyak;
  • the January 24 meeting between the FBI agents and Flynn;
  • the January 30 firing of Yates; and
  • the furious efforts by Yates between January 5 and January 30 to pin something, anything on Flynn –

seem to indicate that Yates was right smack in the middle of the Cabal’s plotting, and that we will likely be seeing and hearing her name come up a lot more in the weeks to come.  So we got that going for us.

The more you know.

That is all.

The Government Shutdown is Here! The First Round is on Me!

  • Tired of all this Winning yet? – Yesterday’s Campaign Update told you that shutting down the government would be the best outcome for the Republicans.  Lo and behold, we have our government shutdown, as the Republicans completely out-maneuvered the Democrats on one of these things for like the first time ever.  They have President Trump and Chuck Schumer, who completely over-played a terribly weak hand to thank for that.
  • With polls showing that 70% or more of the public wanting to do “something” to “protect” the poor DACA “kids” – many of whom are in their 30s – Schumer and every other Democrat spent the entire week claiming they would not do a deal to extend government funding without including some sort of amnesty for these folks who are in our country illegally.
  • When President Trump called Schumer over to the White House early Friday afternoon, Chuckie boy rushed over with a list of demands in-hand, no doubt expecting Trump to cave, like any of his Republican predecessors would have done in this same situation.  But Trump is not a Bush, and no caving was to be had, so poor Chuckie left the White House in a huff, so obviously angry that he actually passed up a chance to talk to the assembled reporters outside, the first time Mr. Schumer has passed up a chance to have his face on TV since he was in grade school.  At that moment, he no doubt fully intended to get back over the Capitol and hold a presser announcing his caucus was going to shut down the government.
  • But a couple of funny things happened while he was on his way back to the office.  First, he was no doubt told by his staff that the hashtag #SchumerShutdown had been trending on Twitter since Sarah Huckabee Sanders had used the term in her White House press briefing earlier in the day.  Second, CNN released a poll while Schumer was in the Oval Office showing that, by a margin of 56 to 34, people thought it was more important to keep the government open and protect Americans than it is to shut it down over an issue related to 800,000 illegal immigrants.
  • Why was that CNN poll such a big deal?  Well, you have to think like the Democrats think.  While there are still good people in the Democrat Party – no, really, there truly still are a handful of well-intentioned Americans still willing to associate with this band of miscreants – the party itself has no soul.  The party itself really believes in nothing, unless believing in something helps it to obtain and maintain political power.  That’s it.  They don’t really give a damn about these DACA “kids”, unless caring about them helps them in that over-arching goal.  Thus, that CNN poll told them clearly that standing firm on a DACA fix at this time was a horrible political loser for them, bigly.
  • Thus, Schumer and his entire caucus then went into panic mode, and spent the next several hours trying to concoct talking points that would make giving in look like some sort of “victory”, and throwing out an array of alternative plans that would have allowed them to keep the government open while saving a little face.  But Mitch McConnell and his Senate Republicans for once held firm and rejected each and every one of them, even as little Lindsey Graham was conducting shuttle diplomacy between Schumer’s and McConnell’s offices, begging them all to give in one more time.
  • So, we wake up this morning, on the anniversary of Donald Trump’s being sworn into office, with 14% of the federal government technically shut down.  As the Campaign Update said on Friday, this is literally the perfect coda to Trump’s first year in office.  If you want to clean out the swamp, one of the things you simply must do is stop giving in to the Democrats in these idiotic games of political brinksmanship.
  • The real glory in all of this is that President Trump for once does not get all the credit for the GOP finally, at long last, doing the right thing.  The happy fact is that every leader in the congressional GOP played his role perfectly.  Speaker Paul Ryan had his congressional chamber pass the bill that set the tone – with bi-partisan support – on Thursday, and then promptly adjourned the House and sent everyone home so they would not be around to gum up the works any further.  Perfect.
  • McConnell and Senate Majority Whip John Cornyn then played their hand perfectly all day long on Friday, putting out a steady drumbeat of consistent messaging about how the Democrats were ignoring the interests of the millions of American citizens in the name of making a special deal for a relative handful of illegal immigrants, a message that Ryan stayed in town to help push as well.
  • It was all perfect.  Everyone played their roles just right.  They’ll still get blamed for the shutdown by the fake news media, but the panic on the Democrat side clearly demonstrated which party will gain strength from this shutdown come election day.
  • At long last, Donald Trump appears to be rubbing off on members of his own party.  They’re slow learners, but it does seem that these old dogs are capable of learning new tricks.  Tricks like #Winning in situations where they had always lost in the past.  This is a day to celebrate if you really care about this country.
Just another day in President Trump just keeps on #Winning America.
That is all.

The Mueller Coup d’etat Unwinds a Little More

  • Heck, I didn’t know he’d gone anywhere. – The UK Metro is reporting this morning that the “comeback album” for white rapper Eminem – the natural inheritor of the proud legacy of the great Vanilla Ice (ok, I’m JK) – is not being well-received by what I have no doubt is his legion of fans.  The British writer says that the collection of what I guess are ‘songs’ is getting “quite a whammy of negative comments.”  And that just breaks my heart.  Can you tell?
  • I had no idea you could take the over/under bet on whether or not we go to war. – Senator Lindsey Graham is apparently angling for a future career as a Las Vegas bookmaker.  “I would say there’s a three in 10 chance we use the military option,” Graham predicted in an interview with a fake reporter at The Atlantic. If the North Koreans conduct an additional test of a nuclear bomb—their seventh—“I would say 70 percent.”  So, if any of you are out in Vegas this weekend, put $100 down for me on the under.  I’ll pay you back.  No, really, seriously, I’m good for it.
  • Is there an over/under on the Mueller Investigation ever finding any evidence of actual “collusion”? – The slow-rolling coup d’etat led by Robert Mueller continued its unraveling on Thursday, as Senate Homeland Security Committee Chairman Ron Johnson (R-WI) released documents showing that the statement given by former FBI Director James Comey in July 2016, which “exonerated” Princess Pantsuit of wrongdoing in her blatantly illegal emailing activities was heavily edited.  More to the point, it was heavily edited and watered down during early May, two full months before Comey had even bothered to interview the Coughing Crook or about a dozen other key witnesses in the case.
  • The original text of the memo, written by Comey himself, states several times that the Fainting Felon was guilty of “gross negligence” in her handling of classified emails.  That’s important because, in the federal statutes, “gross negligence” in handling classified information happens to be a crime.  But the edits watered that charge down to “extreme carelessness”, to which the governing federal statues make no reference.  Voila!, the Cackling Candidate was magically exonerated.
  • The revelation of this editing process within a highly-politicized FBI does deep damage to the already tattered reputation of James Comey, who just happens to be a key witness in the Mueller witch hunt.  After all, the entire basis used by the oily Rod Rosenstein for the appointment of Mueller in the first place was Comey’s illegal leaking of his meeting notes to the New York Times for publication.  If Comey lied to the American people about what he had found during the Clinton investigation and when he found it, and lied to multiple congressional committees during testimony on the same subject matter, why would anyone believe anything else he has to say?  The man is obviously a skunk and a snake, the very worst kind of DC Swamp creature, which I told you all he was back in July 2016.
  • Coming as it does on the heels of so many other revelations this week about various players in the Mueller coup d’etat staff, even some hardcore Democrats are starting to come to the realization that Mueller’s own credibility has been irrevocably damaged.  One such hardcore Democrat is Mark Penn, who served as the head pollster for Bill Clinton, and also worked on Princess Pantsuit’s senate campaign.
  • Appearing on Fox News last night, Penn told host Martha MacCallum that he believes both Mueller and the FBI face a “crisis in public confidence.”  Penn cited a recent poll conducted by Harvard in which 54% of respondents agreed that Mueller himself has conflicts of interest that prevent him from conducting himself fairly, and a whopping 63% believe the FBI is stonewalling congress.  He also noted that this poll was conducted before this week’s flood of new revelations about the horrific behavior of FBI super agent Peter Strzok and various other players on the Mueller coup staff.
  • Folks, our country is in a major crisis.  It is in that crisis because the utterly corrupted leadership at the FBI and various intelligence agencies during the Obama Administration set themselves up as a de facto fourth branch of government, a branch unaccountable to anyone.  The evidence we now have at hand clearly shows that, early in 2016, that fourth branch engaged itself in a focused conspiracy in coordination with the Clinton Campaign and the DNC to try to deny Donald Trump the presidency.  After Trump won the election last November, that conspiracy morphed into a focused  effort to undermine him and to ultimately remove him from office.
  • The Harvard poll cited by Mr. Penn shows that, despite the best efforts of the fake news media to avoid reporting these realities, a clear majority of Americans have begun to figure this all out.  This is a big problem for Mr. Rosenstein and Mr. Mueller, because the flood of revelations isn’t going to slow down anytime soon,  and they really haven’t left themselves any easy way to end the conspiracy they’ve been leading without their own culpability being fully revealed.
  • The next few months are going to be a very interesting and perilous time for our country.  Better buckle up.

Just another day in the Coup keeps unwinding 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.

Alabama Voters To GOP Establishment: Prepare To Die

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

  • Former Alabama Supreme Court Justice Roy Moore easily won yesterday’s GOP primary in his home state, beating interim senator Luther Strange a 55-45 margin.  Strange, a former state attorney general, had been the Republican establishment’s occupant in the seat since Jeff Sessions was appointed by President Trump to become Attorney General, where he is busy indicting college basketball coaches and chasing pot smokers, while at the same time ignoring the criminal behavior of a wide variety of Obama Administration officials and former FBI directors.
  • President Trump had agreed to endorse Mr. Strange as a favor to Sessions and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, who knew Strange would be far easier to control than Justice Moore.  The GOP establishment in Washington and the “real conservatives”, i.e., Never Trump morons at the National Review and Weekly Standard, had all gotten behind Big Luther as well, mainly because they knew he would be more loyal McConnell than to the President.  But President Trump clearly preferred Mr. Moore, and everyone, including Strange and McConnell, knew it.
  • Going into the primary, an increasingly desperate GOP establishment issued stern warnings, telling voters to vote for their preferred milquetoast candidate because, well, he would be so much more electable against Democrat Doug Jones in the special election that takes place on December 12.  Why do they make that specious claim?  Well, because, uh, well, ummmm…because, er, uh, because they like Luther better!!!!!!  Seriously, I have no idea, and neither do they.
  • But the establishment, undeterred by its utter inability to reason logically – which makes it look increasingly like a bunch of Democrats (mere coincidence?) – took it even further. They told voters that a win by Moore would make it more likely that a bunch of pro-Trump people would be nominated for senate offices in 2018, and that, for some reason they also don’t really explain, would somehow make it more difficult for the GOP to retain and even expand its majority in the Senate in the 2018 midterm elections.
  • Wait, what?  Did I miss something?  Haven’t we just been through two years during which Donald Trump first swept to the Republican presidential nomination, in the process defeating a field of 16 mostly milquetoast establishment opponents, and then slobber-knocked The Most Corrupt Woman in America in the general election? What part of that are GOP voters supposed to ignore?
  • McConnell and his do-nothing minions in the establishment claim to worry that the President’s current poll ratings, which sit in the low-to-mid 40s, mean that the Party needs to nominate a slate of candidates that are less loyal to Mr. Trump and more loyal to the DC Swamp.  Mind you, this reasoning comes from a Senator – Mr. McConnell – whose own approval rating in his home state of Kentucky is below 20%, mainly because of his refusal to do what is necessary to enact the Trump agenda.  Overall, the approval rating for Republicans in congress seldom gets into double digits in opinion polls, mainly for the very same reason.
  • So yeah, it makes perfect sense that GOP voters would want to nominate a bunch of establishment squishes who would follow Mitch McConnell around on a leash, expand the DC swamp they elected Trump to destroy, and help Mitch get nothing done for another six years.  Seriously, do these people ever look at themselves in a mirror, even for a moment?
  • One can only wonder what Mr. McConnell and the Bill Kristols and Stephen Hayes’s and Karl Roves of the world will tell us after Roy Moore wins December’s general election by about the same margin with which he just dispatched Big Luther?  What will the talking points be then?  I have no idea, but I do know that most GOP voters just won’t care.
  • Here’s what the real bottom line of all of this really is:  loyal Trump voters, AKA “the vast majority of the GOP voter base today”, don’t really care about whether or not the Republican Party has a majority in the Senate, if that majority is largely made up of RINOs like John McCain, Susan Collins, Lisa Murkowski, Lindsey Graham, Jeff Flake and yes, Luther Strange.  They see the results of the first 8 months of this congress, and realize the results would have been little different on the big things they want to see done had the senate been in the control of the Democrats.
  • So when Mitch McConnell, the leader of that do-nothing Senate, tells them that Big Luther is so much more “electable” against a Democrat than Roy Moore, they honestly just don’t give a flyin’ rat’s ass.  They want to nominate the guy who they know is ready to go to DC and help Donald Trump clean out the swamp, not help the swamp shore itself up with more do-nothing dikes.
  • And that, my friends, is why Roy Moore is now the official nominee of the Republican Party, and why you will see a bunch more Roy Moores become nominees for senate and house seats in 2018.  GOP voters realize they have a lot more work to do in order to get all the skunks and snakes cleared out of the DC swamp, and they are perfectly willing and increasingly able to go do it.

Just another day in dying RINOs America.

Random Sunday Thoughts: Is Rand Paul Smart Enough To Become a Hero?

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

  • Senator Rand Paul has a real opportunity this week to turn himself into a real, true presidential contender in either 2020, should President Trump not run for re-election, or in 2024.  He can do that by becoming the deciding vote to pass the Graham/Cassidy Obamacare reform bill in the U.S. Senate.  Yes, he would need either Lisa Murkowski or Susan Collins to also act like real Republicans and support the bill, but Murkowski definitely seems to be get-able in that regard.
  • Think about it:  By casting that single vote, Rand Paul could become a hero to President Trump’s voter base – which according to recent polls makes up a strong majority of the GOP’s total voter base – a hero to everyone who hates the execrable jerk John McCain – which also makes up a majority of the GOP total voter base – and a hero to the millions of Americans who have seen their ability to access real healthcare insurance decimated by Obamacare.  Yes, it would go against the Senator’s precious libertarian principles, but at some point, if he truly wants to be president – as he seemed to sort of want to during the 2016 campaign – actually getting stuff done is going to have to supersede those principles.
  • This week could be a real, true Rand Paul moment.  Is he smart enough to realize it, and take advantage of it?  Sadly, the smart money is probably on ‘no.’
  • How stupid are NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell and many NFL owners?  They are so damn stupid that, when President Trump went off on their ridiculous failure to discipline players who are killing their product’s TV ratings (down 20% in the last two seasons) that they actually responded by defending those players.  That, folks, take stupid to previously unknown heights.
  • The NFL seems to have lost sight of who makes up most of its audience.  The preponderance of the NFL’s audience is made up of blue-collar working class Americans, the overwhelming mass of whom think it is really important to honor this country’s flag by standing during the national anthem.  It is not a coincidence that the NFL has seen its TV ratings go into free-fall since Collin Kaepernick started his “look at me” act on the sidelines, and was able to continue to do so without consequence.
  • Some apologists for these player like to argue that the NFL’s ratings are down because their games are boring.  Hell, NFL games have been boring people stiff for a quarter of a century now, but the ratings didn’t start collapsing until the National Anthem protests started.  If the NFL brass – except for Jerry Jones, who has made it clear to his Dallas Cowboys that they will stand for the Anthem or be benched – wants to pretend its problem has nothing to do with the protests, then no one will be able to halt the killing of the League’s Golden Goose.
  • All that having been said, I have no doubt at all that all these NFL social justice warriors who today kneel on the sidelines while making millions of dollars a year will be far happier in the future, when their non-football skill sets allow them to earn $12 per hour putting boxes onto trucks at the loading docks behind the local Wal Mart.  So you go, guys!  Power to the people!!!!!!
  • I just can’t wait to see how many NBA players start their own kneeling acts during the playing of the National Anthems before their games.  That’s going to be awesome, and make the NFL’s SJWs look like child’s play by comparison.  Given that I haven’t watched a full NBA game since about 1988, the death of that sport will make no difference in my life anyway.
  • And the virus has even spread into major league baseball, as Bruce Maxwell, a nitwit mediocrity for the also-ran Oakland A’s decided he needed some attention on Saturday, too.  This one kind of bothers me, since I’ve just begun to watch MLB games again this season, but as long as it doesn’t spread to the Texas Rangers or Los Angeles Dodgers, I’ll be cool.
  • Hey, I’m old enough to remember when all SJWs went absolutely berserk and demanded punishing a player named Tim Tebow, who kneeled in prayer to God before NFL games.  I also remember how the same sports and establishment fake news media that is today supporting the anti-flag kneelers ridiculed Tebow for expressing his beliefs in that way.  Funny how that works.

Just another day in Social Justice Warrior America.

Jimmy Kimmel: The Left’s Perfect Spokesman

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

  • Jimmy Kimmel is the perfect spokesman for the American Left.  He personifies everything the Left has become over the last 25 years, since the advent of Clintonian/Alinsky dominance of the Democrat Party:  Entitled, snarky, mean, haughty, and above all else, studiously ignorant.
  • The tactics he deploys from his late night pulpit are the tactics Clintonian Democrats have deployed from their political pulpits for a quarter of a century.  You begin with a set of talking points prepared by someone else, but which you memorize and recite as if they were gospel handed down from God himself.  In Kimmel’s case, the talking points were handed down by Chuck Schumer, more a minion of Satan than a god, but hey, the principle is the same.
  • Kimmel’s talking points are pretty simple:  Obama, good.  Obamacare, good.  Republicans, bad.  Anything Republicans want to to with Obamacare, bad.  That’s the sum total of what Kimmel “knows” about the debate over what to do about the collapsing Obamacare system, which has quintupled medical premiums in many areas and thrown millions of Americans off of healthcare insurance entirely.  Kimmel sees none of this, because none of this is in the talking points he’s been fed by Schumer.  Kimmel is abjectly ignorant, and he clings to his ignorance like Linus clings to his security blanket.
  • Every set of leftist talking points comes with the  standard set of leftist tactics, and those tactics always – ALWAYS – follow the same exact progression:  First you start with a sob story, and to his credit, Kimmel and his beautiful little son have a great, very real sob story to relate.  Second comes the name calling, and boy is Kimmel, a veteran comic, good at the name calling.  Next comes the threats, and Kimmel is as good with the threats as he is at the name calling.  Finally, when the left still hasn’t gotten everything it wants, comes the violence, as we have seen the past few years with Antifa and Black Lives Matter, the armed and violent wing of the Democrat Party.  Kimmel hasn’t gotten around to the violence part yet, but we can be sure he will next time he runs into Brian Kilmeade.
  • As mentioned above, the sob story is real:  Kimmel does have a precious little boy who has a heart condition which has already required one surgery and will, according to Kimmel, require two more.  This is awful, and everyone should be praying for the child’s full recovery.  Luckily for the child, he is the son of a fabulously wealthy member of the top 1% of the 1%, so he will receive the finest healthcare available in America, which is also the finest available in the world.  Kimmel wants his viewers to believe that the only reason his son will receive such fine healthcare is thanks to the demi-god Obama and Obamacare, which of course is an outright lie.  But lying is what leftwingers like Kimmel do.
  • Anyone who argues with Kimmel on this subject and points out his lies immediately becomes the target of nationally-televised name-calling.  If you disagree with Kimmel, suddenly you are evil, a sexist, a racist, and any other -ist he can attach to what his script-writers consider these days to be a “joke”.   One Louisiana Congressman even became an “inbred” in Kimmel’s Thursday rampage, er, ‘monologue’.  It’s all very predictable, yet very sad coming as it does from a comic who at one time was actually a very funny guy who understood what his show was supposed to be about.
  • Then come the threats.  For leftist politicians, the threats come in the form of taxes, penalties or imprisonment on whatever behaviors they don’t approve of but can’t solve through name-calling.  For Jimmy Kimmel, the threats come in the old-fashioned form of threatening to beat someone up when they call out his rank hypocrisy and lying on their own television program.  Thus, his threat to physically assault Fox & Friends host Brian Kilmeade next time he runs into him.
  • The final step for any good leftist is, of course, outright violence whenever they can’t get their way through the peaceful, constitutional process.  Kimmel hasn’t gotten there yet – perhaps only because he hasn’t run into Kilmeade – but can anyone doubt that, should the Republicans cobble together 50 votes in the senate to pass the Graham/Cassidy bill, he will use his late night pulpit to urge his viewers to take that route?  Given his down-the-line mindlessly leftist behavior to this point, it seems almost inevitable.
  • Unlike the detestable Stephen Colbert, who actually understands a lot about politics and just chooses consciously to act the idiot in order to attract an audience, Kimmel is not someone to be condemned, but pitied.  Through a highly emotional life experience, he has allowed himself to fall out of the only role he really knows anything about, and be co-opted by evil leftwingers like Chuck Schumer to act as their stooge.  It’s like the modern-day Wizard of Oz – no need to worry about the image you see projected on your screen, it’s the man behind the curtain who is the real villain.

Just another day in evil leftists America.

That is all.

Exactly Whose Civil Rights Were Violated In Charlottesville?

Today’s Campaign Update 

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

  • The Justice Department announced late Saturday that it was sending in the feds to conduct an investigation into potential civil rights violations amid all the violence that took place in Charlottesville, earlier that day.  The big question is, whose civil rights were violated?  Let’s review the events of the day:
    • You had a properly permitted demonstration by a bunch of white supremacist dimwits that took place without violence;
    • Until, that is, those dimwits were set upon by a bunch of Antifa and Black Lives Matters agitators who were not properly permitted;
    • Violent clashes took place when law enforcement officials were reportedly ordered by Democrat officeholders not to try to prevent them, exactly as happened earlier in the year in Berkeley;
    • After the white supremacist dimwits had been dispersed, one of them decided to commit murder by driving his car into a pack of the leftist agitators, most of whom were white;
    • The one leftist killed by the idiot was also white.
  • So, whose civil rights were violated in Charlottesville on Saturday?  As detestable as they are, the white supremacists did have a legal permit for their repugnant demonstrations.  Violence only broke out when they were set upon by an obviously orchestrated, non-permitted group of leftist thugs.  The murderer made no racial distinction about who he attempted to kill, and killed only a fellow white person.
  • If the Justice Department investigators want to properly do their jobs, they might want to start by investigating the leftwing political activist Mayor of Charlottesville and VA Governor Terry McAuliffe, and determine which of them ordered the police to stand down and allow the non-permitted leftwing agitators to assault the white supremacists.  It is, after all, a felony for any official to knowingly make a decision that causes any protesters to be violently assaulted while in the exercise of their first amendment rights.  The investigators might also want to determine which Soros-funded leftist group it was that organized and paid those leftist agitators to be there on Saturday.  Other than those things, it’s really hard to see, based on the information in the public domain thus far, what other “civil rights” violations might have taken place in Charlottesville on Saturday.
  • Carrying tiki torches and nazi flags, and chanting idiotic white power slogans is detestable for sure.  It is also free speech protected by the First Amendment to the Constitution, and it is a federal crime to violently interfere with anyone’s right to exercise free speech.
  • I will no doubt be attacked and accuse of all sorts of false things for writing this, but if we aren’t willing to stand up for the protection of free speech and peaceful assembly in this country, then we soon won’t have a country.
  • The Mooch turns media moocher. – The Mooch is back, and he’s cashing in, folks, obviously trying to take full advantage of his 15 minutes – make that 10 days – of fame, and the fake news media is perfectly willing to play host to the comeback, as long as he’s critical of only the ‘right’ people.  Those people, of course, include White House Chief Strategy Advisor, Steve Bannon, but do not include National Security Advisor H.R. McMaster or any of the career Obama loyalists who still infest the White House staff.
  • During his interview with fake anchor and longtime Clinton toady George Stephanopolous, The Mooch identified only one senior advisor by name as being a negative influence on the President, and that was Bannon, who has been the main White House target of the fake news media since Inauguration Day.  The Mooch identified Bannon as a likely source of many of the leaks that have come out of 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. since January – which is a very common assumption, and not really news at all – and predicted that he’d be removed by new Chief of Staff John Kelly soon.
  • As long as The Mooch toes this party line, and doesn’t criticize McMaster or any of the media’s sacred cows in the White House, he’ll be a golden boy, and we’ll be seeing a ton of him on network TV in the coming weeks and months.  After all, with Senator From The News Media John McCain out of action, there is a ton of fake Republican air time to be filled, and the networks and CNN can only go to the Lindsey Graham well so many times.   The Mooch’s next stop, in fact, is tonight on CBS’s The Late Show, where he will be interviewed by Trump-hater Stephen Colbert.  If he gives Colbert enough red meat about Bannon, he’ll be on MSNBC with Chris Matthews by Wednesday.
  • Pretty soon, we’ll have to start calling him The Media Mooch.  It’s a great gig if you’re willing to sell yourself out, and with a nickname like The Mooch, can there really be any doubt on that score?

Just another day in fading free speech America

That is all.
