Morning Joe Takes the Fake News Media to New Low With Concentration Camp Nonsense

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

“Ok, let’s see here guys, we’ve already destroyed the attorney/client privilege in the Cohen case, we’re doing our best to destroy the rules of evidence in the Concorde case, what should we destroy next?” – The obvious answer that came back from one of his evil minions to Special Counsel Robert Mueller was “Hey, let’s kill the bail system!” because that’s what he’s now doing in the case against Paul Manafort.

Let’s first note that Manafort, who served as the Trump Campaign Manager for all of 49 days, is not charged with anything even remotely related to what Mueller is supposed to be investigating.  The charges against him are for alleged crimes that took place long before Donald Trump even decided to run for office, things like bank fraud, tax evasion and failing to register as an agent of a foreign government when he lobbied for the Ukraine years ago.

By the way, that “failure to register as an agent of a foreign government” charge could be applied to probably half the lobby firms on K Street in Washington today, which includes many, many former members of congress who don’t want their efforts on behalf of the world’s unsavory regimes made a matter of public information.  So, if Manafort goes to prison for that charge, perhaps we need a special counsel appointed to just do a general roundup of people based on it.  That would be fun.

That said, all of these are crimes and if he is guilty of them, Manafort should pay his price to society.  They just should have been pursued by someone other than a Special Counsel supposedly investigating allegations of “Russia Collusion,” which is of course a fantasy.

But back to the question of bail:  Manafort had to this point been free on bail awaiting trials that frankly may never come, given the clownish behavior of Mueller and his team.  But on Friday, based on a 1 minute phone call he had with a person who may or may not be a witness in a trial that may never occur, Mueller convinced the Obama appointee judge (of course) in the case to revoke Mueller’s bail and toss him in the pokey.

I don’t really have any use for Paul Manafort, but I do value our constitutional rights.  Mueller’s ongoing assault on those rights, supported in this case by an Obama judge who has likely never bothered to read the Constitution, is of deep concern to all of us.  The precedents being set by the tactics this gang of thugs is getting away with would make Stalin proud.

There is no limit to the utter depravity of the American left. – Way back in December of 2016, as the Trump transition team was making plans for the new administration, I told you about illegal immigrant detention centers that the Obama Administration had managed in Texas and Arizona border towns for years.  I noted that liberals and the fake news media had remained studiously silent about these centers while a Democrat was in the White House, but would inevitably start referring to them as “concentration camps” once a Republican was in the office.

Well, it has taken longer than I had assumed it would, probably because every leftist lunatic in the country has been so mindlessly consumed with their Russia Collusion fantasy play, but they’ve finally gone there.  Yesterday morning, the execrable Joe Scarborough led the pack of rabid ferrets that MSNBC calls “journalists” down that path on his “Morning Joe” program, while an entire panel of fake MSNBC analysts resorted to the same absurd characterization later in the day on something called “MSNBC Live with Stephanie Ruhle.”

These comments are an absolute disgrace.  They are completely, absolutely false, they are based on abject ignorance and mindless hatred of President Trump, they demean our Homeland Security and Border Patrol personnel and Health and Human Services personnel (who actually manage the facilities) alike, and they indeed characterize our entire society as just another Nazi Germany.

The truth about these facilities is that they are very well appointed with comfortable furniture, video games, pool tables, modern bathrooms, clean beds and plenty of food.  They are there to hold illegal adults who have committed a crime against our country temporarily while awaiting their immigration hearings.  Their children are held in similarly-appointed, separate facilities while they are separated from their parents.

U.S. citizens who are arrested for committing crimes against our country are also separated from their children.  Those children who don’t have other relatives willing to take custody of them go into similar facilities initially while authorities figure out what to do with them.

No one is ever happy when children are separated from their parents, but this is what happens when parents commit crimes and are arrested for them.  When a Democrat is President, the fake news media says nothing about any of this, because this is just the normal course of business in pretty much every civilized nation.  But when a Republican is in the White House, why, America is suddenly Nazi Germany all over again.

It’s detestable, demented and depraved.  Anyone spreading this outrageous lie should be shunned from society.  A pox on all their houses.

Just another day in depraved leftists trying to destroy America.

That is all.

With Enemies Like Nancy Pelosi, Republicans Don’t Need Friends

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

The rules, they are a-changin’. – This was the week we learned that the long-detested and off-limits “C”-word is now just fine to use in public.  If you don’t think that’s going to be the net result of leftist celebrities like Sally Field and the execrable Michael Moore praising really bad comic Samantha Bee for her use of the term to describe First Daughter Ivanka Trump, you’re living in a dream world.

After all, defining deviancy down is what left-wingers do best, and they’ve been doing it for more than half a century now.

Remember when Bill Clinton told us that having oral sex with Monica Lewinsky in the Oval Office was ok because, hey, oral sex isn’t really sex?  Wasn’t that wonderful?  Remember what happened shortly afterwards?

Within a few months, we began to be flooded with stories about kids having oral sex in high schools, junior highs and even elementary schools all over the country because hey, that isn’t really sex.  What, is there a rule against that or something?

So get ready for the coming stream of stories about kids in 3rd grade calling each other the “C” word and school officials having to explain to outraged parents that their offended daughters should just get over it because Sally Field said it was really just fine.  Because that’s what’s coming.

Hey, remember when Obama made a point of posing in front of that mural of Che Guevara?  Yeah, good times…good times… – Bernie Sanders, who has spent his life idolizing Josef Stalin and Fidel Castro, told a fake reporter on Friday that President Trump “kind of likes all the authoritarian leaders.”  No kidding, he really said that.  I swear I don’t make this stuff up.

Speaking of clueless Democrats, how about that San Fran Nan Pelosi?  Isn’t she a pistol?  A reader asked me yesterday when, oh, when are the rank and file Democrats in congress going to get rid of this doddering nitwit as their leader in the House?  Don’t they realize she’s going to kill them in the midterms?

These are great questions – we’ll get to the answers in a minute.  But first, let’s review Pelosi’s endorsements and condemnations in just the last two weeks:

She has endorsed:

  • The ultra-violent MS-13 gang;
  • Kim Jong Un;
  • Hamas, which has been classified by the U.S. State Department as a terrorist organization since 1998;
  • Raising taxes;
  • Impeachment;

She has condemned:

  • A 3.7% record low rate of unemployment;
  • Record low Black and Hispanic unemployment;
  • Tax cuts;
  • Rapidly expanding economic growth;
  • The effort to denuclearize the Korean Peninsula;
  • Accelerating wage growth;

This is not the makings of a winning campaign platform for the Democrats’ down-trodden congressional candidates.

Now, the answers to the readers’ questions:  Yes, they realize she’s killing them, and no, she’s not going anywhere anytime soon.  She is clinging to her power like a rabid squirrel clinging to its last acorn.

Isn’t that great news for Republicans?  Why yes, yes it is.

After all, if the fake news media had any standards, it wouldn’t be fake! – MSNBC announced on Saturday that it is will continue its pursuit of CNN for the title of Fakest Outlet In The Fake News Universe by hiring former Obama advisor Ben Rhodes to be its newest fake news analyst.  You might remember Mr. Rhodes as being most famous for going around bragging about having created an “echo chamber” within the national news media on the horrible Iran deal by strategically lying to all the “20-something” naive fake reporters.

Hey, if you’re gonna go fake, you might as well go all-in.

In other news, the Fox News channel has been the #1-rated cable news network for 197 consecutive months.  Proving yet again that liberals have zero sense of self-awareness or ability to engage in real introspective thought.

Just another day in the rules, they are a-changin’ America.

That is all.

The McCabe Firing Must be a Beginning, Not an End

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Down goes McCabe!  Down goes McCabe!  Down goes McCabe! – Sweaty swamp snake Andrew McCabe got his formal walking papers from Attorney General Jeff Sessions last night, one day before he turns 50 and his lucrative federal pension was about to kick in.  Despite the buttoned-down bureaucratic nature of the decision, based as it was on an Inspector General investigation and a firing recommendation from the DOJ Office of Professional Responsibility, the fake news media went into full fakery mode, declaring that this firing of a single well-documented bad actor means that President Donald Trump “is at war with the FBI.”

Over at MSNBC, the geriatric Andrea Mitchell, who has been faking the news since the Nixon Administration, issued this tweet in her self-described role as a “McCabe supporter”:

Remember, this is a person who wants you to believe she reports the “news” for a living.

McCabe himself didn’t take the news very well, issuing a long, self-serving statement that had obviously been carefully written by communications professionals, in which he portrays the President as the devil and himself as pure as the driven snow, and is fully consistent with the prevailing Democrat/media narrative on the matter.  Here’s a couple of paragraphs:

“This attack on my credibility is one part of a larger effort not just to slander me personally, but to taint the FBI, law enforcement, and intelligence professionals more generally,” McCabe said. “It is part of this Administration’s ongoing war on the FBI and the efforts of the Special Counsel investigation, which continue to this day. Their persistence in this campaign only highlights the importance of the Special Counsel’s work.

“For the last year and a half, my family and I have been the targets of an unrelenting assault on our reputation and my service to this country,” McCabe continued. “Articles too numerous to count have leveled every sort of false, defamatory and degrading allegation against us. The President’s tweets have amplified and exacerbated it all. He called for my firing. He called for me to be stripped of my pension after more than 20 years of service. And all along we have said nothing, never wanting to distract from the mission of the FBI by addressing the lies told and repeated about us. No more.”

‘War with the FBI’, ‘Trump has attacked me’, ‘Trump’s tweets are the problem’, bring the family into it because it helps build public sympathy, yada yada yada, blah blah blah.  All the hallmarks of a statement written by reliable leftist talking points monkeys, probably the same ones who wrote the script for all the programming on CNN and MSNBC last night.

Here’s the truth about Andrew McCabe and all the other swamp snakes and skunks who were involved in the DOJ/FBI Cabal’s efforts to fix the 2016 election for Hillary Clinton and then to hamstring the Trump presidency:  Firing them and/or reassigning them is not enough.  Denying them their pensions is not enough.  Humiliating them on the Donald Trump Twitter feed is not enough.

It will never be enough until these people – each and every one of them, without exception, is prosecuted to the full extent of the law and tossed into federal prison for the rest of their lives for the damage they have done to our country.  And that includes not only the bad actors at the FBI and DOJ – it includes all the bad actors at the Obama White House like Susan Rice and Samantha Power and Loretta Lynch and even Barack Obama if the conspiracy can be shown to have risen that high.  It also must include the fake journalists at the various fake media outlets who knowingly coordinated efforts with the cabal, and there is plenty of evidence that numerous fake journalists did so.

The truth here is that the firing of McCabe must not be the end of this tale, but the beginning of an effort to finally, once and for all, de-corrupt the FBI and DOJ after 8 years of their having been utterly corrupted by a corrupt president and his lackeys.  The truth is that the Trump White House needs to truly be at war with elements within the FBI and DOJ, and winning that war will require the good people who remain in those institutions to join the battle.

Hopefully, Jeff Sessions is up to that task.  The decision to jettison McCabe is a positive sign, though we should now expect the fake news media to start mounting assaults on Sessions’ character now that he has publicly taken a side.

For America to become truly great again, the firing of Andrew McCabe must be remembered as the first symbolic shot fired in what will become a long and brutal legal battle to recapture the nation’s soul.  Otherwise, it will go down in history as a meaningless futile gesture of a democratic republic destined to crumble.

Just another day in the game is afoot America.

That is all.

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

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Just another day in singin’ the Delta blues America.

That is all.

The Campaign Update Week In Review – Soooo Much Winning!

Here’s where we are in President Donald Trump’s Administration eight days before Christmas…

  • The economy is booming, with the New York branch of the Federal Reserve now estimating it will grow at the pace of 3.98% in the fourth quarter.  That would represent our third straight quarter above 3% economic growth, a feat not achieved in over a decade.
  • Unemployment is nearing a record low, asThirteen states this year have seen their unemployment rates drop to the lowest levels ever recorded since the federal government began keeping track of state-level data more than four decades ago.”
  • Regulations are vanishing at an amazing pace –  When he came into office in January, one of the first things President Trump did was issue an executive order mandating that, for every new regulation his agencies propose, they must eliminate at least two existing regulations.  The Trump Administration announced that it has in fact eliminated a staggering 22 existing regulations for each new proposal.  This rapid elimination of the Obama regulatory agenda is probably the main reason why the economy is booming today.
  • Obama holdovers are also vanishing at a rapid pace More than 700 employees have now left the EPA since President Trump took office.  Of course, as a friend pointed out Twitter, most of them will just go back to the radical leftwing anti-development groups they came from and continuing being a burden to society, but at least taxpayers won’t have to pay their ridiculous salaries anymore.
  • Meanwhile, at the Department of the Interior (DOI), Secretary Ryan Zinke announced this week that he had fired 4 senior DOI employees for charges of sexual harassmenet, and  said “I will remove 400 more if necessary.”  Cool.  Get after it, Mr. Secretary.
  • The Dow Jones Industrials closed at a record high on Friday, marking the 69th time that has happened since Donald Trump won the election over the Pantsuit Princes last November.  That is not a coincidence, either.
  • The largest tax cut in American history is on the verge of being passed – As mentioned in yesterday’s Campaign Update, the announcements by GOP Senators Marco Rubio and Bob Corker that they will support the bill would give Mitch McConnell the 51 votes he needs on Tuesday to send the bill to the President’s desk.
  • CNN, the king of the fake news universe, continues to suck wind behind Fox News and MSNBC in the cable news race.
  • The Federal Communications Commission rescinded the Obama Administration’s absurdly mis-named “Net Neutrality” rules.  These rules actually were designed to give favorable treatment to Obama-preferred Internet behemoths like Facebook, YouTube and Twitter, in that presidency’s fervent efforts to have the government picking winners and losers in every industry.  No more.
  • #MeToo meets “Hardball” – fake MSNBC host Chris Matthews found himself the latest NBC celebrity to be embroiled in the never-ending sexual abuse scandal on Saturday, when it was revealed that the network had paid out $40,000 to an accuser in 1999 and formally reprimanded him for his behavior.  Of course, like congress, the Peacock Network – which obviously has had a whole bunch of peacocks in rut running around its halls for many years – kept it all a secret until it had no choice.  With Matt Lauer, Mark Halperin and now Matthews all outed, The Campaign Update just can’t wait to find out what NBC has been keeping secret about its other hosts.
  • The Mueller-led attempted coup d’etat continues to unravel, and leftwingers are getting so desperate that they are now resorting to sending California Congresswoman Jackie Speer out to push fake “rumors” that the President is planning to fire Mueller before Christmas.   Hilariously, 70 year-old commie producer Rob Reiner and 80+ year-old washed up actor George Takkei both threatened to “take to the streets” should Trump fire the Witch-Hunter-in-Chief.  Now, that would be fun to watch.

Sadly, that won’t be happening, because Mueller won’t be going anywhere, at least not until the DOJ Inspector General issues his final report on wrongdoing within the DOJ and FBI in January.  Then, all bets will be off.

Just another week in Soooo Much Winning! America.

That is all.

Why Does The Fake News Media Keep Lighting Up Trump’s Exploding Cigars?

  • What’s the over/under for how long it will take before Chelsea Handler blames this on President Donald Trump? – After telling a haughty British interviewer that she would not be representing President Trump at the Winter Olympic Games or visit the White House should she win a medal there, skier Lindsey Vonn suffered a back injury at World Cup trials on Saturday.  No doubt, the intrepid fake journalists in our fake news media will find a way to blame this on collusion between Trump and Russia.
  • Ok, so, the whole Democrat/fake media “Russia Collusion” narrative has failed, and there is obviously no case to be made against the President for obstructing justice.  As a result, it is becoming increasingly apparent that the fake media has latched onto going after the President for his personal habits now.  The NYTimes this morning has a hit job today claiming that President Trump watches too much television and drinks too much Diet Coke.  I swear I don’t make this stuff up.  Who could?
  • Remember that this NYTimes hit job – based entirely on un-named “sources”, of course – comes on the heels of a major media-fed dustup early in the week over whether or not the President eats too much junk food, and eats too fast.
  • Later in the week, sleazy Joe Scarborough obsessed over the fact that the President slurred a few words in his speech announcing the move of the U.S. embassy from Tel Aviv to Israel, claiming – in Joe’s expert opinion as a scumbag TV host – that it was a sign of early dementia.  Scarborough was made to look like a fool (no great task there, of course) when Mr. Trump went out to Pensacola and spoke for an hour without stumbling over a word Friday evening, but that won’t stop Joe from offering more opinions on subjects about which he has no knowledge whatsoever when his program resumes tomorrow morning.
  • Meanwhile, at the end of every week, Politico runs a piece titled “5 Things Trump Did This Week While You Weren’t Looking,” a piece that lists the President’s major policy accomplishments  that took place while the NYTimes was reporting on how many Diet Cokes he consumes and Morning Joe is obsessing over the fact his mouth got dry at the end of a 15 minute speech.
  • Note to all you fake journalists who infest our news media like cockroaches infest the average single-wide trailer house:  Nobody out here in flyover country voted for Donald Trump based on his eating or TV watching habits.  Nobody voted for him because of his high use of language or his diction.  We voted for him because he promised to come into office, get things done, and reverse the anti-American legacy of Barack Obama.  That’s why he won, and that’s exactly what he’s going about doing, very successfully I might add.
  • Seriously, it’s as if President Trump hands the fake news media a great big exploding cigar each and every day, and each and every day, the fake news media just lights it up.  I’m cool with that.

Just another day in fake news media America.

That is all.

Trump Enrages The Atlantic Simply By Eating. Now, That is Winning!

  • Why are fake news media outlets such cesspits of abuse and bigotry?  Part 3,152 – Eternally belligerent MSNBC fake news host Joy Reid issued an apology yesterday for the revelation of a heinously bigoted, homophobia-filled blog she maintained about a decade ago, but not, of course, before she had attempted to delete the blog entirely.   “At no time have I intentionally sought to demean or harm the LGBT community, which includes people whom I deeply love,” Reid said, though, in her blog, she obviously did do that on many, many occasions.  Guess the devil made her do it.
  • Hey, c’mon, it was an innocent 3-year long mistake.  Could’ve happened to anybody. – MSNBC, which, as a part of NBC, has been embroiled in dealing with the recent sex abuse scandals swirling around its own Mark Halperin and NBC’s Matt Lauer, was mute on the Reid controversy.  But after all, MSNBC is the network that kept the likes of Keith Olbermann and Al Sharpton employed for years, so expecting this particular fake news outlet to punish Joy Reid in any meaningful way is like expecting ABC to do so with, say, Brian Ross.
  • Hey, when something’s inevitable, you might as well enjoy it. – Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, who was among the first political figure to jump out and try to force Judge Roy Moore out of the Alabama Senate race when he became accused of weird sexual behavior back in the early ’80s, has had a sudden change of heart.  On Sunday, McConnell told a fake interviewer on ABC’s This Week that “I’m going to let the people of Alabama make the call.”  Well, that’s mighty big of you, Mitch, given that you have absolutely no say in the matter at all.
  • Someone really should remind the WaPo about the definition of insanity. – The Majority Leader was most likely just responding to a raft of new polls that almost uniformly show Judge Moore with a fairly strong lead of 6-8 points among likely voters in the race.  I say “almost” because the reliable hacks at the Washington Post poll made a last-ditch effort to influence the race, tossing in a faked-up poll pretending to show Democrat Doug Jones with a 3 point lead.  Everyone should remember that it was the Washington Post/ABC poll that showed Hillary Clinton with a 13-point lead less than two weeks before Election Day 2016.  We saw how that worked out for them.
  • Having apparently exhausted all other avenues of irrationally slamming President Donald Trump (I never tire of typing those three words), the fake journalists who infest The Atlantic have now decided to go after him for his…wait for it…EATING HABITS!  I kid you not, some guy named James Hamblin issued a piece on Saturday that condemns Trump for liking – gasp! – McDonald’s and – horrors! – Oreos, for regularly consuming more that elite society deems appropriate in one sitting, and for snarfing down his food too quickly.  Why, the nerve!
  • Here’s a typical paragraph:  “There is no question that this diet is dangerous and is very likely to shorten a person’s life. His dietary pattern adds to the picture of a 70-year-old man who has long been living against all health advice—who does not exercise, who barely sleeps, who has tumultuous relationships, who is frequently enraged.” The author even goes on to claim that the President’s eating habits might well get us all killed, speculating that “Decisions to live this way would seem to offer insight into Trump’s ability to assess risk. In light of a nuclear standoff with North Korea, rapidly warming oceans, and a looming tax bill that would leave millions more Americans without health insurance, his approach to self-maintenance is not reassuring.”
  • It takes a special kind man to be able to enrage leftist Manhattan elitists by the simple act of consuming food, and it is oddly reassuring to so many millions of us out here in flyover country that our current POTUS is exactly that kind of man.  Now I think I’ll run out to McDonald’s and get three bacon, eggs and cheese biscuits and a large Diet Coke for breakfast.

Just another day in Donald Trump is Winning Through Eating America.

The Pantsuit Princess’s Presidential Pursuit Persists

Today’s Campaign Update 

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

  • The twits at MSNBC just cannot stand the fact that the Texas mass killer was in fact stopped from killing even more people by a good guy with a gun.  Fake journalist Chuck Todd and some fake talking head named Yamiche Alcindor intentially lied about the heroic actions of Stephen Willeford, who chased the killer barefoot and shot him twice with his own AR-15 rifle before the killer was able to flee in his car.
  • Alcindor said “The shooter was not stopped, there was not a big gun fight … and I think there needs to be a fact check on how this got stopped in the first place.”  Todd responded with “The narrative here as you saw with Mike Huckabee and the president is a little bit off the rails.”  Both statements are intentional lies, as Willeford’s actions have been confirmed by multiple law enforcement officials at this point.  But hey, this is MSNBC we’re talking about here, so lying is just what they do.
  • Speaking of shameless liars, The UK Daily Mirror reports this morning that The Most Corrupt Woman in America is in negotiations with former British spy Christopher Steele – who paid agents of the Russian government to supply phony dirt for the infamous “Trump Dossier” – to purchase a …wait for it…wait for it…SECOND FAKE TRUMP DOSSIER!  I swear I don’t make this stuff up.
  • No doubt the scorned Pantsuit Princess plans to promote the pusillanimous piece of poop as the pretense for another pursuit of the presidency in 2020.  Hey, it would be a better rationale for running than she presented to the public in 2016.
  • If you think I’m joking about the Fainting Felon making another run in 2020, well, think again.  Yesterday she took to her Twitter account to take credit for Tuesday’s Democrat election wins in Virginia, New Jersey and elsewhere.
  • “Last night was a great reminder of what’s possible when we come together and fight for what we believe in,” Clinton tweeted Wednesday. “So I wanted to take a few minutes to celebrate the extraordinary successes of a few groups I – and Onward Together – proudly fight alongside.”  Of course, it is vastly more likely Democrats were able to score these wins in what are very Blue states by denying any association with the Clinton Crime World, but that’s not the point.  The point is that the Coughing Crook remains power mad, and she will never voluntarily give up on her Quixotic quest. And that, folks, is fantastic news for Republicans everywhere.
  • Not to be outdone, good ol’ Joe Biden, who will be 77 in 2020, decided it was he, not the Mendacious Megalomaniac, who deserved full credit for all the wins, sending this note to his followers:  “Yesterday, millions of Americans around the country used their votes to demand, full-throated, a different kind of leadership.  And last night, nearly every single candidate that I endorsed at your recommendation was elected.”
  • Yes, it was all because the Democrat candidates who won had received the endorsement of a guy who has been wrong about literally everything that has happened in the world for the last 40 years.  And here they all thought it was due to their own hard work and the efforts of their actual supporters.  My goodness.
  • This outbreak of Dueling Banjos between two of the most tone-deaf politicians who have ever subjected themselves on the American public is music  to the ears of Republicans who have been concerned about the potential for the Democrats to field an actual appealing candidate for the presidency in 2020.  If the Party of the Future is just going to roll out Clinton, Biden and Bernie Sanders as its presidential field, Donald Trump can breathe a sigh of relief.

Just another day in Hillary isn’t going away quietly America.

How To Keep Up With Trump Change, i.e., Why Whatfinger > Drudge

Today’s Campaign Update 

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

  • I get a lot of questions from readers and friends, but here’s one I get frequently:  How do you keep up with everything that’s going on these days?  That question is almost inevitably followed with, How do you decide what to write about each day?
  • These are great questions, because there is no doubt that the news – both real news being generated by public policy, world events and the incredible pace of radical change being implemented by the Trump Presidency, and fake news being generated by myriad false narratives coming from the Democrats and their agents in the fake news media – moves at a rapid pace, a far faster pace than we have ever experienced before.  I think some readers think there is some sort of magic involved here, but in reality, it’s just a matter of getting up early and using the right tools.
  • I get up at 5:00 every weekday morning – I try to sleep in until 6:00 on weekends – and start my process of scanning the news.  I turn on the TV, and keep it mainly on “Fox and Friends,” not necessarily because I enjoy it all that much, but mainly because I find the morning programs on CNN and MSNBC to be pretty much unwatchable at this point.  Joe and Mika are just a couple of TMZ wannabes these days, and the hosts on CNN are two of the most singularly dimwitted people I’ve ever seen in my entire life.  Expecting to obtain any real, honest information out of any of these people is the errand of a fool, and I’m too old to spend any time running that kind of errand anymore.  Sorry.
  • But in reality, I’m a reader, and I get most of my news input online, and the vast majority of that is initiated from just a couple of places:  Twitter, and my favorite news aggregation site, Whatfinger.com.
  • I started using Twitter back in 2011 after a very smart person who I highly respect told me she that was where gets pretty much all of her news.  Prior to that, I had considered Twitter to be a toy and a waste of time, but I figured hey, if she’s using it maybe I need to give it a shot, too.  So I established an account and was immediately hooked.  Twitter has a lot of drawbacks, not least of which is that people tend to lose their social filters on social media, but when managed correctly through the use of lists and muting and/or blocking of annoying riff-raff, becomes a valuable tool for quickly getting up to speed.
  • Where news aggregation is concerned, most people immediately default to the Drudge Report, and I did that too, until about a year ago.  I can’t remember how or why I first became aware of Whatfinger.com, but I imagine I just stumbled across it during one of my morning news feeding frenzies.  I know it was in the final days prior to the election because I remember how glad I felt to come across it at such an intense time.
  • Don’t get me wrong here:  Drudge is still great, and everyone should be eternally grateful to Matt Drudge, because in the mid-90s he, along with Fox News, permanently destroyed the ability of the Democrats and their agents in the fake news media to completely control the narrative, tenor and slant on the news we all consume each day.
  • But in our new world, where the big story changes multiple times almost every day, Whatfinger is just better.  The first reason for this is just the volume of the content.  I’m a guy who never, never ever goes beyond the landing page of any aggregation site or Google search.  Don’t have time for it, seldom find anything useful or current beyond Page 1.  On its landing page, Whatfinger always links to at least three times as many current, relevant stories as you will find on the Drudge Report, and they appear to be updated on pretty much an hourly basis.
  • The second reason is organization.  The Drudge model is just to throw links to about a hundred stories or so up onto his landing page in a pretty much random order.  Whatfinger groups its stories into a series of specific categories.  If you want opinion columns, here’s the section.  If you want videos, they’re over here.  Breaking news is at the top.  Fake news from CNN and MSNBC is even organized into its own convenient grouping for all the gluttons for punishment who access Whatfinger.  A real time-saver.
  • The third reason is curation.  Again, Drudge is almost purely a collection of links described with the story’s headline.  Whatfinger not only gives you the headline, on its breaking news and many other current stories, its editors also provide a brief description of the story’s content, including its hilarious “Barf Alert” warning on stories that are particularly idiotic and/or slanted.  Again, this saves time, and time is extremely valuable when you’re trying to put out a relevant 800-word piece by 7:00 each weekday morning, a little later on weekends.
  • Keeping up with this incredibly rapid pace of change requires identifying and using the best tools.  I use several, but if you’re a reader like me, there is no better, more useful tool out there right now than Whatfinger.com.  Trust me.
