Yet Another Riot In Yet Another Democrat City

Today’s Campaign Update 

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

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

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

That is all.

I’m Much Too Young To Feel This Damn Old

Here are some things I’m old enough to remember:

  • I’m old enough to remember when, three weeks ago, the Democrats plagiarized PapaJohn’s Pizza with a new slogan promising they were going to focus on “Better Jobs, Better Wages”, instead of dividing America.

  • I’m old enough to remember 7 days ago when Senator From The News Media John McCain lambasted President Trump for his aggressive posture towards the Crazy Little Fat Guy in North Korea, saying it wouldn’t work.
  • I’m old enough to remember all the way back to January, when Charlottesville Mayor Mike Signor declared his city to be the “Capital of the ‘Resistance’ “.
  • I’m old enough to remember when it was the communists in the Soviet Union and radical muslims in Afghanistan who were going about toppling statues and trying to erase history, rather than the Democrats here in the U.S.
  • I’m old enough to remember when the global temperature records kept by NOAA hadn’t been falsified for political purposes.
  • I’m old enough to remember when radicals on the Berkeley campus were peacefully demonstrating in favor of free speech, not violently rioting to restrict it.
  • I’m old enough to remember when senators of both parties rallied around the president of the United States whenever some nutjob dictator threatened to bomb our homeland, and when those who didn’t do so were criticized rather than praised by the news media.
  • Speaking of the news media, I’m old enough to remember when it was only partially fake.
  • I’m old enough to remember when Barack Obama said “We can’t drill our way to lower gasoline prices.”  Oops.
  • I’m old enough to remember when The National Review was a conservative journal, and The Weekly Standard wasn’t edited by Hillary Clinton shills like Stephen Hayes and Bill Kristol.

  • I’m old enough to remember when the panels on Fox News’s “Special Report” were balanced, unlike the utter disgrace they aired Monday evening.
  • I’m old enough to remember when the Republican Party actually stood for something.

  • Hell, I’m so old I remember 1995, when the GOP had real leadership in both houses of congress.
  • I’m old enough to remember when Hollywood turned out watchable movies – you know, the kind with plots and acting and stuff like that.
  • I’m old enough to remember when I wasn’t a fanatic about Dallas Cowboys Football.  Ok, that’s a lie – I’ve always been a fanatic about Dallas Cowboys Football.
  • I’m old enough to remember when Nancy Pelosi wasn’t a doddering, babbling fool.  Ok, that’s a lie, too.
  • I’m old enough to remember when Maxine Waters lived in her own congressional district.
  • I’m old enough to remember when the Federal Bureau of Investigation was a functioning, respected law enforcement agency, i.e., the pre-James Comey years.
  • I’m old enough to remember when Obamacare didn’t exist and most Americans really did have affordable healthcare insurance.
  • I’m old enough to remember those seven years when every Republican in Washington (except for Sen. Susan Collins, who is really a Democrat) promised they were going to repeal Obamacare.
  • I’m old enough to remember when we all thought John McCain was a genuine American hero.  No really, virtually all of us did.  Silly us.
  • Finally, I’m old enough to remember when both major political parties respected the constitution, the American flag, and the national anthem.  Sadly, the Democrats no longer respect any of those things, and it’s hard to be sure whether many Republicans do anymore.

I’m much too young to feel this damn old.

Can We Get That Whole CalExit Deal Moving A Little Faster?

Today’s Campaign Update 

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

  • If we didn’t have Democrats, we’d have to make them up.Ok, I swear I didn’t make this up.  It’s a real story.  The far, far, far, far left wing of the far, far leftwing California Democratic Party is mounting a recall effort on their own Assembly Speaker because…wait for it…he isn’t far, far, far, far leftwing enough for them.  Wait, you say, Speaker Anthony Rendon is as far, far, far leftwing as it gets, right?  Well, no.  See, he needed to add one more “far” to that total of “fars”, and ram through a completely unworkable proposal to implement single-payer healthcare in the Golden State, a bill that would have utterly bankrupted the state’s treasury within a few years.  Of course, the leftist nitwits who pushed this bill and are now taking out their frustrations on the Speaker figure that when the money runs out in their own state, they’ll just petition the federal government to force taxpayers from the 49 other states to pay for their ruinous policies.  It’s the California way, after all.
  • Hey, can we get that whole CalExit deal moving along a little faster? – Speaking of the insanity that is California, CA Congressman Lou Correa is so unhinged that he now displays a painting of the Statue of Liberty wearing Muslim garb in his congressional office.  This isn’t political thought, this is mental illness.  But then, California is the state that gives us Nancy Pelosi and Maxine Waters, so, just par for the course, really.
  • At long last, this is what you’re sorry for having done?Caitlyn Jenner apologized to her dozens of fans for having been photographed wearing a “Make America Great Again” cap.  Of all the millions of things Caitlyn Jenner owes an apology for, wearing a cap of any kind is not among them.
  • Well, that’s a damn shame.Reuters reports that the Justice Department is not looking to charge journalists for knowingly releasing leaked classified information to the public.  Because no Republican can be counted on to do the right thing anymore.  Sad!
  • I am shocked, shocked to see temperatures falling in Australia! – I reported a couple of weeks ago about the scandal in Australia over the Bureau of Meteorology’s (BOM) effort to “revise” the national temperature data there to invent “global warming” where none is occurring.  Graham Lloyd at The Australian is now reporting that, now that BOM has been caught and forced to properly record actual temperature data rather than make it all up, temperatures Down Under are suddenly plummeting.  Go figure.  No one could have seen that coming!
  • Let the good times roll…or float… – Big news yesterday in New Orleans as heavy rains there overwhelmed the city’s utterly inadequate pumping system that is supposed to drain rain water off of city streets.  While the Times Picayune reported this as if it were some rare occurrence, I have personally been in New Orleans three times in the last 20 years in which the same thing happened.  And no, there weren’t any hurricanes coming through at those times.  The simple fact of the matter is that New Orleans – which I love – is 11 feet below sea level on average, and when it rains heavily, the streets are gonna flood.  This is not news, this is an inevitability.
  • Wait.  Is this question serious? Really??? – The mental midgets at Newsweek ran a piece with the following breathless headline:  “WHY ARE MOST POLITICIANS WHITE 52 YEARS AFTER THE VOTING RIGHTS ACT WAS SIGNED INTO LAW?”  Ummmmm…lessee here….hey, could it be because most people in America are white, even 52 years later?  Now we know why Newsweek exists only in bandwidth.  My goodness.

Just another day in praying for CalExit America.

Fisking The Fake News Media – Opportunities Abound

Today’s Campaign Update 

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

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

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

It’s The Mooch’s World And We’re Just Living In It

Today’s Campaign Update 

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

  • Somewhere, in an alternate universe from hell, Anthony Scaramucci and Megyn Kelly are getting married in a ceremony presided over by Maxine Waters.  Reince Priebus is the best man, Katie Couric is the maid of honor, and Freddie Mercury is belting out “Bohemian Rhapsody”.  I’m glad I don’t live in that universe.  This one is cray cray enough.
  • I hadn’t heard this until this morning, but in addition to a) being hired to do a job for which he had no visible qualifications, b) alienating everyone in the West Wing of the White House during his first 24 hours on the job, c) unwittingly giving the most profane interview in the history of the New Yorker Magazine, d) displaying a level of breathtakingly rank naivete’ towards the real nature of the fake news media, e) getting Reince Priebus fired, f) having divorce papers served on him by his Trump-hating wife, and g) getting not just fired, but forcibly escorted from the White House grounds, all within a span of 11 days, The Mooch’s wife also gave birth to a healthy new baby boy last Monday.  The Telegraph reports that The Mooch was not only not present for the blessed event, he chose to send his congratulations to his estranged spouse via text message.  Hey, at least he didn’t do it with a Tweet.
  • Speaking of adult children, what in the hell is wrong with J.K. Rowling?  The author of the unending series of Harry Potter books took a shot at President Trump a few days ago when she saw a snippet of video in which it appeared that President Trump had failed to shake the hand of a 3 year-old, wheelchair-bound boy at a White House reception.  Ms. Rowling – who has been a serial basher of the President on her Twitter account – wrote “How stunning, and how horrible, that Trump cannot bring himself to shake the hand of a small boy who only wanted to touch the President.”  Of course, it wasn’t horrible or stunning at all, if only one takes the time to view the full video of the reception.  The President had in fact interacted with the boy a few seconds earlier, not only taking his hand, but bending down to hug him and spend time talking with him.  Within hours, literally thousands of Twitter users pointed this truth out to the Rosie O’Donnell wannabe author.
  • Any normal person possessed of the most rudimentary human manners would have had a simple solution:  delete the tweet and apologize to both the little boy and the President.  But not the mighty J.K. Rowling, oh no.  Apparently simple good manners are beneath a fantasy writer of her stature and wealth.  Days went by with no word from the author, despite a building number of reports on her bad behavior in the news media.  Even when the boy’s parents tweeted directly to her that she was wrong and owed them, their son and the President an apology, no response the imperious writer.
  • Finally, a full day after the parents’ plea, Ms. Rowling lowered herself to issue an apology, but only to the boy.  It was only after Politifact weighed in on Monday, giving Ms. Rowling’s tweet a “Pants on Fire” rating, that the fantasy queen finally deleted the offending tweet.  But still no apology to the boy’s parents or the President, whom she was slandering in the first place.  What a creep.
  • Somewhere, in another alternate universe, The Mooch is firing J.K. Rowling and giving her Harry Potter gig to Megyn Kelly.  I’m glad I don’t live there, either.

Just another day in It’s The Mooch’s World And We’re Just Living In It America.

How the Left Celebrates the 4th of July

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

  • Lunatic California Congresswoman Maxine Waters celebrated our nation’s birthday by threatening our Housing and Urban Development Secretary, Ben Carson:  “[If he] things [sic] that I am going to give him a pass, I am going to take his a** apart,” Waters told an audience at something called The Essence Festival in New Orleans.  Such a lovely, peaceful nitwit.
  • The fake reporters, anchors, editors, and management at CNN celebrated the nation’s birthday by learning that all their fake reporting and retracting stories and firing fake journalists led to a 20% decrease in the fake news network’s prime time audience during the month of June.  They all no doubt rededicated themselves to double down on their news-fakery efforts in July.
  • The fake journalists at The Hill reported that at least a dozen FBI employees sported the same t-shirt to the agency’s “Family Day” celebration on Saturday.  The logo on the t-shirt read “Comey is my Homey.”  This is what is known at the White House as a target-rich environment for cleaning out the DC Swamp.
  • In Murder City, aka Chicago, progressives celebrated the weekend leading into Independence Day as they always do, by shooting one another.  By midnight on Sunday, at least 6 Chicagoans had died, with reports citing as many as 50 having been wounded by gunfire in the streets of a city that has been led by Democrats exclusively for a century.  No wonder President Trump is threatening that the federal government might take over law enforcement duties in this cesspool.
  • On NBC’s fake news program “Meet The Press”, fake host Chuck Todd celebrated the nation’s birthday by assuring his viewers that he had no intention of discussing actual issues.  This exchange actually happened:

    Health and Human Services Secretary TOM PRICE:  Chuck, you know, this is really remarkable. You’ve got incredible challenges across this nation, incredible challenges around the world. The challenge that I’ve been given is to address the health care issues. And your program, a program with the incredible history of “Meet the Press,” and that’s what you want to talk about?

    TODD: I don’t.

    PRICE: Let me suggest to you that the American people want to talk about the challenges.

    TODD: Mr. Secretary, I don’t.

  • And of course, blessedly former President Barack Hussein Obama celebrated the birth of the United States of America by doing the same thing he’s always done, speaking out about the evils of actual patriotism.  No one should have expected anything else from this clown.

Happy Birthday, America!

That is all.

The Fake News Media Is To Blame

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

  • Fake journalists all over the fake news media spent most of the day yesterday desperately trying to distract the public’s attention away from the undeniable reality that it was their own lack of any journalistic ethics whatsoever that led directly to the mass shooting of House Minority Whip Steve Scalise and four others on Wednesday.  Chuck Todd was the champion rationalizer when he proclaimed that “we’re all to blame”.  Meaning, of course, that everyone except him and his fellow fake media assassination dog-whistlers are to blame.  Well, sorry, Chuck, it’s you.  Your fellow fake journalists.  Your network and its corporate owners.  The shooter’s Facebook page and other writings make it very clear that he hung on ever lunatic conspiracy theory spun by your colleague, Rachel Maddow, every disgraceful, irresponsible claim made by your colleague, Larry O’Donnell.  It’s you, Chuck, you, your disgusting colleagues, your disgusting bosses, not some farmer out in Podunk, Nebraska, or some hairdresser in Sawdust, Texas.  You.
  • The editors at the fake newspaper of record, the New York Times, tried to do their blame-shifting for their own heinous behavior by regurgitating the long-ago debunked lie that the Gabby Giffords shooting was caused by a Sarah Palin campaign ad.  When even CNN and the Washington Post started reporting that that was an outrageous lie, and Ms. Palin let it be known she was consulting her lawyers about a potential defamation suit, since the Times’ editors most certainly knew it was an outrageous slander when they published it, the Times meekly published a quick retraction.
  • And it is that very episode, of two fake news outlets actually exercising journalistic integrity to shame another fake news outlet to correct a false story, that proves my point that the loss of all semblance of journalistic integrity and ethics is the biggest problem facing our society.  Bear with me here, because this is important.
  • The founders of this country knew that a free and functioning press was critical to the maintenance of the kind of republican democracy they were trying to establish.  They knew this because such a free press was needed to curb abuse of power in the executive, congressional and judicial branches of government.  The best way to curb such abuses of power and misbehavior in office was to empower a fourth estate, the press, that had the freedom to discover such abuses and the willingness to bring them to public attention – regardless of the political party involved – in order to shame officeholders into behaving more properly, just as the WaPo and CNN helped to shame the NYTimes.
  • Where Democrats are concerned, the press long ago by and large abandoned this responsibility, and completely threw it away in 2008 when they uniformly decided to sign onto the Obama campaign.  For eight long years, the incredible abuses of power by President Obama and his evil surrogates went unremarked by the fake news media.  That abject failure of journalistic integrity has in turn now led Democrats and their voter base to believe they can engage in pretty much any behavior or rhetoric, no matter how disgusting or encouraging of violence, because they know they have no price to pay in the media.
  • So you have spectacles like the DNC Chairman and a senator from New York running around the country gratuitously tossing out profanities because they know the will suffer no reputational cost, and because they think it will attract Millenial voters to their party.  You have Kathy Griffin posing for that disgraceful photo because she believed she could do anything, no matter how outrageous, and not suffer any consequences (she didn’t factor in the social media backlash into her thinking).  You have Maxine Waters running all over the country spewing pro-assassination rhetoric because she knows she can do that with impunity.  You have Hillary Clinton proclaiming herself proudly as a part of the “resistence”, tacitly endorsing the violent protests by Antifa, because she knows there is no price to be paid.  You have leftwing celebrities calling daily for the assassination of Mr. Trump because they know there is no price to pay for such behavior.  You have the DNC fixing the primaries for Hillary Clinton in the full light of day because they knew the media wouldn’t report on it in real time.  This list could go on and on and and on.
  • When there is no political price to be paid due to media diligence, politicians will behave badly.  Badly behaving politicians will lead to bad behavior by their voters, because they too know there is no price to be paid.  This is not complicated.
  • What you see today is Republicans all over the morning shows talking about how they plan to tone their rhetoric down in the wake of Wednesday’s events.  Hell, even Ted Nugent’s talking about toning it down.  Why?  Their behavior didn’t lead to any of this.  You don’t see a similar number of Democrats doing that.  In fact, you already saw Nancy Pelosi ratcheting the rhetoric back up yesterday.  Why?  Because Republicans and Ted Nugent know they have to do this or the fake media will attack them.  The Democrats, meanwhile, knowing there is no price to be paid for their own bad behavior, will go right back to their own bad behavior.
  • It’s the fake news media’s fault.  The journalistic profession in America is dead.  Our leaders can either come to grips with this reality and begin to find ways to hold the media accountable for its serial heinous abuses of its first amendment privileges, or we will ultimately find ourselves in a civil war.  This is not mere speculation.  This is an inevitable outcome of the path we currently find ourselves on.

Just another week of fake news media destroying America.

CBS News Is Infested With Ghouls

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

  • And That’s The Way It Is…:  Shortly after last night’s bombing of the Ariana Grande venue in Manchester, England, CBS reporter David Leavitt, who is such a “professional” fake journalist that he has often bragged about how he is a proud part of the “resistance” against President Donald Trump, sent out the following Tweet:  “Multiple Confirmed Fatalities at Manchester Arena.  The last time I listened to Ariana Grande I almost died too.”  If you watch CBS to get your news, you are getting your news from a bunch of ghouls.
  • Oh, Noes!  Who cut off Maxine’s Mike????:  California’s African American Caucus is looking for answers right now about why the power to the mike was cut off right in the middle of an anti-Trump diatribe being delivered to their group by the supreme nitwit of today’s U.S. congress (which is saying an awful lot), Maxine Waters.  But no worries – Maxine could never be shut up just because the mike went out, as she told the crowd that “they try to shut me up all the time.”  No word on who “they” is, and why “they” are so damned ineffective at their job.
  • Of course, once you’ve sold your soul to the Clintons, “crazy” becomes a relative term.:  Well known spirit cooker and former campaign manager for The Most Corrupt Woman in America, John Podesta, gave an interview to a fake journalist at Politico in which he called President Donald Trump “absolutely crazy.”  He then went home to sacrifice his weekly goat.
  • Wait.  Someone needed Elton John to tell them this?:  In an interview with Variety, pop legend Sir Elton John told a fake journalist that the MTV era “produced many untalented musicians.”  In other news, water is wet.
  • Now that a special counsel is investigating, it’s the only reasonable action to take.:  Fake journalist heads all over the fake news media exploded on Monday when Mike Flynn’s lawyer notified the Senate Intelligence Committee that Gen. Flynn will not testify before that committee, exercising his fifth amendment rights.   It’s fair to remember that, when IRS scumbag Lois Lerner exercised her fifth amendment rights in live testimony, the very same fake journalists who condemn Gen. Flynn basically ignored the Lerner story.  Radio silence.  If fake journalists working for all these fake news outlets want us to stop referring to them as fake, the rank double standard by which they conduct themselves must end.  No one should hold their breath waiting for that to happen.
  • Speaking of Mike Flynn…:  Everyone does realize that Gen. Flynn is a registered Democrat, right?  Just thought that was worth repeating at this moment in time.
  • Meanwhile, in the realm of winning…:  President Donald Trump flew in Air Force One from Riyadh, Saudi Arabia to Tel Aviv, Israel, marking the first time any plane has flown that route.  A truly historic moment in global history, which about 98% of the fake news media in America studiously ignored.   Pathetic.

Just another day in ghoulish fake news America.

Today’s Campaign Update (Because The Campaign Never Ends) – 5.20.2017

  • Democrats have now set themselves up with a big problem, thanks to their incessant, irrational talk about “Impeachment” over the last few months:  They now have a radical leftwing base that expects them to deliver the goods, and soon.  The trouble is, it’s a goal that is not deliverable any time in the foreseeable future.  In doing this, the Democrats have set themselves up with the very same conundrum that Republicans set themselves up with on Obamacare.
  • Why is it not deliverable?  First because, simply, the impeachment of a president requires there to be a crime.  So far, despite all the sound and fury and fake news reports based solely on unnamed “sources”, no crime has been identified.  Indeed, no crime on the part of President Trump has even been alleged, as confirmed by a series of former Obama officials, the now-fired Director of the FBI and every Democrat Senator who has been willing to opine on the question.  Hell, even the insufferable nitwit Maxine Waters was forced to admit this reality early this week.  No crime, no impeachment.  It really is that simple.
  • Second is the next reality that the impeachment process is managed in the U.S. House of Representatives, where the Republicans currently control a very large majority of seats.  The approval of articles of impeachment requires a majority vote in the house, meaning that, even if every Democrat were to vote in favor, dozens of Republicans would have to join them in that effort.  And getting to that point assumes that Republican Speaker of the House Paul Ryan would even allow such a process to begin on his watch.  Ryan has never been a fan of President Trump, obviously, but he is a loyal Republican, and it’s hard to imagine him allowing such a process to even begin on his watch, barring revelations that some real crimes have been committed by the President.
  • Third is the reality that Impeachment simply means that the house has voted to accuse the President of crimes that merit his removal from office.  The removal process is managed in the U.S. Senate, where again, Republicans have control, and where Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has even more control over the process than Speaker Ryan does in the house.  Making things even more difficult, the actual removal of a president from office requires a 2/3rds vote of the senate, not a simple majority, so it is not something Democrats would be able to accomplish by simply having disloyal Rinos like John McCain and Lindsey Graham join them in the effort.
  • So basically, the Democrats, as the Republicans did seven years ago related to Obamacare, have now created an expectation among their base voters that they have no current way of satisfying, and let’s face it, the Democrat base is basically insane at this point in its overwhelming rage, and not known for its patience.  This is a segment of our society that behaves in such an irrational manner because it believes it is entitled to have its way.
  • The Democrats are now going to have to base their campaigns in the 2018 mid-term elections on a promise to impeach President Trump if they are given majorities in not one, but both houses of congress.  This is a promise that, absent the revelation of some real crime committed by President Trump, is likely to turn as many people off as it turns on.  It’s one thing to campaign against a piece of legislation, as the GOP did for the last 7 years; it’s quite another thing to base a campaign on the promise of never-ending chaos that is incredibly damaging to American democracy.  Democrat base voters don’t care about such things, but independent voters by and large do.
  • And here’s another pesky reality of life facing congressional Democrats:  they aren’t likely to win a majority in either house of congress in 2018, much less both houses.  House districts have been so expertly gerrymandered by both parties over the last 40 years that only a few dozen races will even be competitive, and Republicans will win their share of those competitive races.  Democrats might close the gap in the House, but odds are very remote that they will turn it completely.
  • The Senate is even tougher for Democrats, as more than half of their senate membership is up for re-election in 2018, and they will have to defend 25 of 34 seats that are in play.  Eight of those seats currently occupied by Democrats are in states that were easily won in 2016 by Donald Trump.  The most likely scenario for 2018 is that the Republicans will actually increase their majority in the Senate, not lose ground.
  • Where does that leave the Democrats in 2019?  It leaves them with an even angrier base of voters than they already have, though I know it’s hard to imagine that being the case.  Further, it leaves them with literally no way to placate that perpetually enraged base going into the 2020 presidential elections.  That in turn means that the Democrat Party will continue to migrate even further to the far left than it already is in its never-ending efforts to placate the rage.  That leftwards lurch will almost certainly result in a presidential nominee who is unabashedly socialist/fascist, like Bernie Sanders, who will be pushing 80 by 2020, or the Fake Indian Senator from Massachusetts, who will be easily marginalized as the nut job she truly is.
  • We have seen many Democrats now begin to back off from using the “I” word over the last couple of weeks, in part because of the appointment of a special counsel to investigate their Trump/Russia collusion fantasy, and in part because the smarter among them – like Sen. Feinstein – have worked through the same logical progression detailed above.  But this won’t last for long, because their base of perpetual rage-filled entitlement babies won’t allow it.
  • This is the house that the Democrats have built for themselves by allowing their worst nitwits to lead the party’s public messaging assault on President Trump.  Who knows?  Perhaps they’ll be able to manage it all to a successful conclusion.  But the odds are very much against it, because the process of impeaching and removing a president was devised by much, much smarter people than they are.

Just another day in premature impeachment frenzy America.

That is all.
