The Horowitz and Wray Show Comes to Capitol Hill

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Happy Father’s Day!  – Pretending to suddenly be concerned about the children of illegal aliens who have illegally crossed into the United States, social justice warriors took to social media on Saturday in outrage that many Americans would be celebrating Father’s day on Sunday.  I celebrated Father’s Day with my family anyway, and even worse, cooked delicious, juicy animal meat in the form of beef and chicken fajitas for my wifey, children and grandchildren to consume.  They loved me for it.  So there.

San Fran Nan is outraged, too. – Doddering old Nancy Pelosi, who after a lifetime of supposed “public service” can somehow afford to live in a multi-million dollar home protected by a wall in one of the priciest neighborhoods in San Francisco, and who owns several other homes to boot, attacked “people of faith” on Sunday for not caring about the plight of illegal aliens.  You can be sure that Ms. Pelosi, who claims to be a practicing Catholic, won’t be selling any of her homes to raise money to support these immigrants, or tear down her property’s wall to set a good example for the rest of the country.  Because, well, liberals.

Big Drama coming this week on multiple fronts. – Today and tomorrow, DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz and FBI Director Christopher Wray will go to capitol hill to offer testimony about the report he released last Thursday on the FBI’s fake investigation into the Clinton email scandal during 2016.  Horowitz and Wray will testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee today and before the House Judiciary Committee on Tuesday.

We can expect Director Wray to deflect, dissemble, refuse to answer based on false claims of “protecting sources” or other classic dodges used by FBI Directors in such situations, because he has clearly demonstrated he is just another feckless bureaucrat whose main goal is not the revelation of the truth, but the covering of his and his utterly corrupt department’s ass. That’s what we saw from him in his god-awful press conference last Thursday following the report’s release, and there is no reason whatsoever to expect anything different from him today or tomorrow.

Horowitz, however, is a different matter entirely.  Unlike Wray, he is not a guy with a history of obfuscating and deflecting in this kind of setting.  In his past testimonies to congress he has pretty much always been blunt and clear in answering questions posed to him.

What will be interesting to see with Horowitz will be to observe whether he bases his testimony on what was written – most likely by Wray, Rod Rosenstein and others – in the Executive Summary to his report, or if he bases his testimony on what is contained in the actual body of the report.  Because while the Executive Summary claims his report finds “no documentary evidence” that political bias influenced the fake investigation, the body of the report details all manner of not just bias, but outright hostility towards Donald Trump influencing pretty much every decision made in the conduct of what really amounted to a cover-up operation favoring the Pantsuit Princess.

And where the Executive Summary to the report claims to have revealed no criminal wrongdoing on the part of anyone at the FBI, the body of the report details all sorts of criminal actions, including the taking of bribes and leaking of classified information on the part of multiple bad actors within the FBI.  Thus, which part of the report Horowitz chooses to reference in his answers to questions from Republican members of these committees – the Democrat members will all just do what they can to continue to support the cover-up – will be key.  Horowitz has a history of trying to do the right thing in the face of obstruction and blow-back from his superiors within DOJ.  We can only hope that continues to be the case.

The other bit of drama we may finally, at long last see this week will be some real pushback from the GOP leadership in the House of Representatives over the DOJ’s and FBI’s ongoing refusal to comply with perfectly valid and legal requests by several committees for documents.  Speaker Paul Ryan is finally personally engaging in the controversy, having attended a Friday night meeting in which he, Devin Nunes, Trey Gowdy and Bob Goodlatte (chairmen of House Oversight, Intelligence and Judiciary committees, respectively) met with Wray and Rosenstien to hammer out a final deal on provision of said documents.

The group is supposed to meet again today, after which DOJ supposedly has promised compliance of some sort.  Nunes and Gowdy were both very plain-spoken in media interviews on the matter Sunday:

From Nunes:  “My patience  has run out. I believe that they have leaked — they created massive leaks. We know that from the I.G. Report. Inspector Horowitz showed us these major, major gaffes…here’s the bottom line.  Mr. Rosenstein, the deputy attorney general, and Director Wray have to decide whether or not they want to be part of the cleanup crew or they want to be part of the cover-up crew.  That’s really the decision that they have to make for themselves here. The best way they can be part of the cleanup of this mess is give us all the documents this week, so that we can put this behind us and let the American people begin to heal.”

From Gowdy:  “Paul Ryan led this meeting… And Paul made it very clear; there’s going to be action on the floor of the House this week if the FBI and DOJ do not comply with our subpoena request.  So Rod Rosenstein, Chris Wray you were in the meeting, you understood him just as clearly as I did. We’re going to get compliance or the House of Representatives is going to use its full arsenal of constitutional weapons to gain compliance.”

This all, of course, comes on the heels of a very rancorous meeting between most of these same principles last week, during which the perpetually oily and abusive Rosenstein actually threatened to subpoena the phone and email records of the members of congress and their staff in retaliation for conducting their constitutional oversight duties.  So it’s pretty easy to see why everyone’s nerves would be on end over this situation.

Of course, the problem these committee chairmen have is that congress’s power in this situation is fairly limited.  Our constitutional balance of powers envision that patriotic, competent and loyal people will be appointed to these high positions within the Department of Justice.  We know today that that was definitely not what happened in the Barack Obama Administration, and the jury is just barely still out on Wray, Rosenstein and Jeff Sessions.  Based on that assumption of good faith, the founding fathers did not give congress many powers to effectively combat a corrupted DOJ.

About the worst congress could do in this situation would be to initiate impeachment proceedings against Rosenstein and Wray, something Nunes and Goodlatte have threatened to do in the past.  But if these guys are corrupt enough to engage in this stonewalling operation for over a year now, and they know that there is not a single Senate Democrat honest enough to vote to remove them from office, what do they care?

So there will be drama, because we can be sure DOJ and the FBI are not going to comply with these latest congressional demands, but at the end of the day it will almost certainly end up being a lot of sound and fury that ends up signifying nothing.

Just another day in the drama never ends America.

That is all.

That “Blue Wave” May Be About to Become a “Red Flood”

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Irrelevant.  Americans today need to know what too much #WINNING does to them. – The National Centers for Environmental Information (there’s your all-time politically correct name) issued a report on Monday that says that watching too much bad news can be hazardous to one’s health.  So now you know why all of your Democrat friends are feeling so bad these days.

Where were these guys when Obama and Kerry were surrendering to Iran’s Mullahs? – Senate Democrats, feeling a sudden need to pretend to care about U.S. national security – something that historically only happens when a Republican president is about to achieve a major foreign policy victory for the country – issued their list of “demands” for what President Trump must include in any treaty with North Korea that will need to be ratified in the Senate.

These demands include the following:

  1. The deal must include the dismantlement and removal of all nuclear, chemical, and biological weapons from North Korea.
  2. The U.S. must ensure a “complete and verifiable denuclearization of North Korea,” removing all items related to nuclear-weapons production to prevent the country from reversing course.
  3. North Korea must end its ballistic-missile program as well.
  4. North Korea must comply with “anywhere, anytime” inspections to ensure it is not cheating on the deal, and sanctions must be immediately restored if it does cheat.
  5. The deal must be permanent.

If it strikes you that this list of “demands” reads like the list of goals the Trump Administration has been talking about in advance of the June 12 summit meeting in Singapore, that’s because they basically are one and the same.

Look, the Democrats are beginning to panic about their prospects in November’s mid-term elections.  Bereft of any bright policy ideas of their own which might attract new voters, they are now going about the process of attempting to co-opt conservative positions on issues, starting with the negotiations with North Korea.  This is what Bill Clinton taught them to do in 1996, and it’s what they’ve tried in every election cycle since that time.

Just a couple of months ago they and their fake news media agents were convinced that they were headed towards a grand victory, a “Blue Wave” that would see them win a majority in the U.S. House of Representatives, maybe the Senate as well, and make sweeping gains in state governorships and legislative houses all over the country.

But what had once been as much as an 18-point lead in congressional generic preference polling has now essentially disappeared as the Trump tax cuts have kicked the economy into high gear and good news for America continues to pour in from around the world.  Americans are becoming optimistic about the future again – one recent “right direction/wrong direction” shows the “right direction” answer coming in at its highest level in many years – and that is never a positive sign for the eternally depressed and negative Democrats, who rely on human misery and suffering to build voter support.

Think about it:  Have you seen a single Democrat politician or liberal talking head on your television talk about what a great thing it is that the Black and Hispanic rates of unemployment are at all-time lows?  No, of course you haven’t.  Democrats don’t want Blacks and Hispanics to have jobs – Democrats want Blacks and Hispanics to be dependent on the government because that’s the best way to ensure they will continue to vote in overwhelming majorities for Democrats.

So, Democrat “leaders” – such as they are – see all this good news taking place, they see Kanye West and other young African American leaders beginning to speak out about this orthodoxy they’ve held in place for half a century, and they have no idea at all what to do about it other than to resort back to the “triangulation” tactic they’ve employed in every election cycle for 22 years.  That’s what this Korea canard is all about, and you’re going to see more of that kind of co-option of GOP positions taking place in the coming weeks.

Because the reality is that, as we sit here today, the overarching national momentum in this election cycle is firmly behind the Republicans now, just as the overarching mood of the public had moved behind Donald Trump’s candidacy at this point in 2016.  That could change between now and November, but it would take some extraordinary paradigm-shifting event to make it happen.

When you see San Fran Nan advocating for additional tax cuts and Chuckie Schumer out in Chicago or Detroit or Baltimore talking about the need to get tough on crime, you’ll know for sure that the once-vaunted “Blue Wave” is about to turn into a “Red Flood.”  This is all very predictable.

About that Bill Clinton interview… – It occurs to me this morning that this NBC interview with Bill Clinton and an extremely uncomfortable James Patterson is a real teaching moment for Millennials.  Because this is the first time in their adult lives that they have seen the real Bill Clinton that we all had to deal with throughout the decade of the ’90s put on display for everyone to see.

There he was in all his sociopathic glory, shifting blame, denying responsibility, angry at being questioned, refusing to apologize and pretending that it is indeed he who is the actual victim here.  Bill’s all about the whole #MeToo movement, only in his mind it’s all about him, not the many women he abused throughout his adult life.  Poor, poor persecuted Bill.  Why, I kept waiting for him to toss out the whole “vast rightwing conspiracy” canard just for fun.

Here’s a hint for all you Millennials who were not really following politics while Bill was chasing 22 year-old interns around the Oval Office:  The most telling line of that entire interview is when he says, when asked about his Monica Lewinsky scandal, “Nobody believes I got out of that for free. I left the White House $16 million in debt.”

See, with the Clintons, it was always all about the money.  Bill and Hillary Clinton are America’s Greatest Grifters.  Everything they did, every office they sought was all about what was in it for them.  Their having debt at the end of Bill’s terms in office – fact-checkers show it wasn’t really even close to the number Billy boy tossed out – was in their minds justification for having Hillary turn her gig as Obama’s Secretary of State into a classic mob influence racket in which she was only too happy to sell U.S. foreign policy decisions to the highest bidders.

The Clintons – both of them – were always just in it for the money.  They were always looking for their next scam.  For Hillary, being elected President was going to be the most glorious scam of all.

Be happy she didn’t make it there.

Just another day in Panicking Democrats 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.

Great News For America is Always Horrible News For Democrats. It’s a Rule.

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Yeah, that?  It’s not a good idea.  But please go ahead and do it anyway. – The genius program managers at ABC, panicked over the loss of their highest-rated spring program thanks to Roseanne Barr’s Twitter meltdown earlier this week, have now come up with the not-so-brilliant idea of doing a spinoff of “Roseanne” focused on the daughter, Darlene, played by the career mediocrity Sarah Gilbert.  Yeah, that’s not going to work, but I sure do hope they try.  It’s always fun watching these network sleazeballs fail.

Mr. Trudeau also requests that you all refrain from farting for the next 10 days. – And hey, the liberals up in Canada aren’t any better.  In preparations for hosting the upcoming G7 conference in Ottowa, boy king Justin Trudeau’s government has instructed the region’s farmers to avoid spreading manure-based fertilizers on their fields while the leaders from Italy, France, Germany, Great Britain, Japan and the U.S. are in town.  Wouldn’t want the international guests to experience any nasty odors, you know.

No word yet on whether the boy king has also placed travel bans into the country on Michael Moore, Samantha Bee and Kathy Griffin, but it seems likely.

 

Tired of all this Winning yet?  Part I – The news on the economy continues to be fantastic, with another tremendous jobs report for April, unemployment equaling the all-time low recorded since the statistic began to be measured in 1969, the labor participation rate at its highest in a decade, and black and Hispanic unemployment rates also at all-time lows.

The Atlanta branch of the Federal Reserve’s GDPNow forecast model now estimates second quarter GDP growth will come in at a whopping 4.8 percent, well above the 3% Trump target which was labeled impossible to achieve by America’s Biggest Mistake, Barack Obama.  Remember all the Obamatons’ talk about the “new normal” of 0-2% economic growth forever?  Funny, we don’t hear anyone saying that anymore.

The economy also added more than 20,000 manufacturing jobs during the single month of April.  Those are the jobs you may remember that Obama, speaking at an event at a Caterpillar location, told us were those old jobs that were “never coming back.”  Remember that?  The folks at booming Caterpillar certainly do.  When Donald Trump talked about bringing those jobs back on the campaign trail in 2015-16, Obama scoffed and said “you can’t just wave some magic wand” to make such jobs reappear.

Hey Barack, Yes We Can.

Tired of all this Winning yet?  Part II – Meanwhile, the increasingly sweating Democrats are so utterly bereft of any real idea on how to deal with all of this wonderful news for America (which is always horrible news for Democrats) that they sent the stammering, doddering San Fran Nan out in front of the TV cameras to say…wait for it….oh, this is a good one….“May’s jobs report shows that strong employment numbers mean little to the families hit with soaring new costs under the Republicans’ watch.”

No kidding, she really said that.  I swear I don’t make this stuff up.

So, the Democrat Party’s official response to all this fantastic jobs creation and economic growth is that it’s all bad because Republicans created it and Republicans are bad so it’s all bad.  Or something.  Did you follow that?  Yeah, nobody else did either.

Democrats.  If they didn’t exist, no one in their right mind would ever dream of making them up.

 

I hate to say I told you so, but hey, I told you so. – After receiving a gigantic letter (see below) from the Crazy Little Fat Guy in North Korea on Friday, President Trump announced to the leering fake news media that the summit meeting between the two men scheduled for June 12 in Singapore is going to happen after all.  This ‘news’ came as a shock to all the fake reporters and editors in our fake news media, because none of them have taken the time to try to understand how the President conducts strategic negotiations.

Those of you who read the daily Campaign Updates knew all of this a week ago.  No need to thank me.   This isn’t exactly rocket science here.

This wonderful news for America is also horrible news for Democrats (do you sense a recurring theme here?).  If the President is able to successfully negotiate a framework for the verifiable and permanent de-nuclearization of the Korean Peninsula with the Crazy Little Fat Guy, the Democrats may never recover.  Even an agreement in principle to begin a process would put a huge nail in the coffin of the already-pretty-much-dead “Blue Wave” that the Democrat agents in the fake news media were raving about as recently as March.

Because, repeat with me, Great News For America is Always Horrible News For Democrats.  There are no exceptions to this immutable rule.

Just another day in Donald Trump is killing the Democrat Party America.

That is all.

As Trump Negotiates, Democrats Self-Immolate

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

You thought Wendy Davis was a disaster for Democrats in 2014?  Lupe Valdez says “hold my beer.” – Texas Democrat gubernatorial nominee Lupe Valdez is making the closing of property tax “loopholes” one of her campaign’s major areas of focus.  Yesterday, the Dallas Morning News reported that Ms. Valdez – a former Dallas County Sheriff – owes more than $12,000 in delinquent property taxes.  Democrats:  If they didn’t exist, nobody in their right mind would want to make them up.

But..but…but…who are we gonna get to play the president in our next disaster movie? – Actor Morgan Freeman got his #MeToo moment yesterday, as no fewer than 8 women came forward to accuse him of all sorts of detestable harassment behavior.  This creates a severe casting problem for Hollywood’s producers, since it seems as if Mr. Freeman has appeared in about 50% of all movies filmed since about 1996.

Meanwhile, the scumbag di tutti scumbags, big Hollywood muckety-muck and good friend of Hillary and Oprah Harvey Weinstein, will apparently surrender himself to New York City police today on felony sexual assault charges.  We can expect a whole lot more surrendering himself on sexual assault charges to be in Mr. Weinstein’s future, as active investigations into his behavior are ongoing in at least three U.S. states and two other countries.  He was a very busy man.

In case you missed it, the Twitter meme wizards have provided this campaign tool to every Republican candidate running for office in this year’s mid-term elections:

San Fran Nan – the gift who just keeps on giving – to Republicans.

Democrats really should learn how to read, Part 9,587. – On Thursday morning, President Donald Trump issued a letter to the Crazy Little Fat Guy in North Korea seemingly cancelling the scheduled June 12 summit meeting between the two men in Singapore.  Citing the intemperate tone of recent official comments coming out of North Korea over the past week, Mr. Trump also expressed his willingness to resume negotiations over the de-nuclearization of the Korean Peninsula whenever the Norks calmed their crazy selves down.

Democrats all over the country – none of whom have bothered to read “The Art of the Deal” or make any other real effort to understand the way the President operates in high-stakes negotiations – spent most of the day literally celebrating what they believed was a big “win” for Kim Jong Un (because liberals will always side with the world’s despots over the United States whenever a Republican happens to be in the White House).  Had any of these people ever taken the time to try to understand Mr. Trump, they’d have known that the letter, and the brief speech he made later in the day on the subject, are classic examples of negotiating tactics that he has used many times in the past.

At about 4:20 CT yesterday afternoon, I decided to try to be helpful to all the Democrats out there on my Twitter account:

Less than an hour after that tweet was posted, the Norks responded with an official statement calling the President’s cancellation of the Singapore meeting “extremely regrettable,” and offering to meet with Mr. Trump “any time and in any form.”  The Kim government also issued a video that purports to depict the destruction of the country’s main nuclear weapons testing site.

In “The Art of the Deal”, one of the negotiating tactics Trump emphasizes is that you have to be willing to just get up and walk away from a bad deal.  This was the major failure of Barack Obama and John Kerry in their laughable negotiations over the deal with Iran – they were so desperate to get a deal, any old deal at all that would in their minds enhance Obama’s pathetic “legacy”, that they were never willing to just walk away.  So they ended up with one of the most horrific “deals” in world history, a “deal” that ended up requiring them to load $400 million in cash on a plane and fly it over to Tehran to give to the Mullahs.

Donald Trump isn’t going to do that.  He’s not going to sacrifice America’s national security and national treasure for reasons of personal vanity as Obama did.

We have to remember here that Trump is engaged in a highly complex negotiation involving not just two countries, but four:  the United States, North Korea, South Korea and China, which is North Korea’s main benefactor, and thus exerts tremendous influence on Kim’s behavior.  Despite what it says, Trump’s letter was not about recent intemperate statements coming from Kim and his official spokesmen.  The President is obviously dissatisfied with some aspect of what is being offered by either North Korea or China, and is not willing to put his name on an agreement until that matter is resolved favorably to the U.S.

We also need to realize that the President’s dissatisfaction may not even be about some issue directly related to North Korea – he could be trying to gain concessions out of China’s President Xi in ongoing tariff negotiations or some other China-related matter.  We don’t know right now, and the truth is that we may never know.

What we do know is that yesterday’s upheaval has not ended U.S./North Korea negotiations.  We also know Democrats very predictably jumped the gun because they still, 17 months after the 2016 election, have no understanding of how the current President of the United States operates, or for that matter, why he was elected to begin with.

Yesterday was just part of the art of the deal.  The deal may – or may not – ended up being delayed, but the rapid response by the Crazy Little Fat Guy proves that it isn’t dead, as every Democrat in America had obviously hoped.

[ADDENDUM]

About 30 minutes after I posted this piece, President Trump issued the following tweet:

I rest my case.

Just another day in the Art of the Deal America.

Trump Ends Iran Deal; Obama Legacy Almost Gone

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Tired of all this #Winning yet? Part I – San Fran Nan provided GOP candidates with they only ad the need to run in their campaigns this fall, promising to raise taxes if the Democrats regain a majority in the House of Representatives and she becomes Speaker once again.  Seriously, if Republicans didn’t have Nancy Pelosi, they’d have to invent her.  She is their best weapon in this year’s mid-term elections, if they’re smart enough to use her.

Tired of all this #Winning yet? Part II – All that wailing and gnashing of teeth you heard around 7:00 Central Time Tuesday night was emanating from the halls of CNN and MSNBC, where all the mouth-breathers who staff those fake news outlets were crying in their very cheap beers over the fact that Don Blankenship was crashing and burning out in West Virginia.  All the fake news people were praying the extremely goofy Blankenship would prevail in his effort to defeat several other candidates to become the Republican nominee to challenge incumbent Democrat Joe Manchin for his senate seat.  Blankenship would have been turned by the media into a replay of the Roy Moore fiasco in Alabama last year, so the Republicans did well to give him just 20% of the overall vote.  Good riddance.

Tired of all this #Winning yet? Part III – Democrats and their agents in the fake news media all hate President Donald Trump with a passion, but Israelis love him.  The City of Jerusalem just chose to name a public square in the President’s honor for keeping his campaign promise to move the U.S. embassy to that city from its current location in Tel Aviv.  Keeping your promises might not win you a totally un-deserved Nobel Peace Prize like the one Barack Obama received in 2009, but it will win you real gratitude from real people.

That un-American Obama “legacy” just keeps disappearing. – Speaking of Donald Trump keeping his promises, the President announced on Tuesday that he is ending U.S. participation in the Iran deal to which Barack Obama unilaterally chose to commit this country.  In response, the Iranian government responded very predictably, issuing war threats, burning an American flag on the floor if its fake parliament, and staging protests in which the oppressed protesters shouted…wait for it…you know what’s coming, don’t you?…”DEATH TO AMERICA!!!!”

Seriously, can’t the Mullahs teach these people any new chants?  This one has become as tiresome as another Pirates of the Caribbean sequel.  Do something else, already.

So, one more nail in the coffin of Barack Obama’s incredible shrinking legacy, which as of today is pretty much limited to a few random straggling Obamacare provisions, a handful of regulations that Trump hasn’t gotten around to rescinding yet, and of course all the illegal activity committed by the Obama Justice Department, the FBI and high Obama officials against the Trump Campaign in their tireless efforts to rig the 2016 election in favor of the Pantsuit Princess.

Otherwise, that legacy is as gone as Eric Schneiderman’s reputation, as gone as Jake Tapper’s credibility, as gone as Megyn Kelly’s ratings, as gone as Kathy Griffin’s career, and what a wonderful thing that is for the entire country.  All because we elected a President who has worked hard to keep the promises he made during his election campaign.  This really isn’t complicated, America.  Let’s keep doing it.

Throughout the day on Tuesday, ex-Obama officials took to their twitter accounts to defend the Iran deal, to no avail.  Most prominent among those was the execrable Ben Rhodes, who became famous for going around giving interviews after the deal was implemented in which he bragged about how easy it was to lie to the fake news media about the deal and convince all the young, naive reporters that it was actually a great deal for America.  Given that, it’s really amazing CNN hasn’t given Rhodes a gigantic contract to become an on-air contributor.

But my favorite came from John Brennan, the former CIA director and guy who has a history of voting for communists:

Within minutes after Brennan issued that tweet, North Korea confirmed that it will be releasing three U.S. prisoners while Secretary of State Mike Pompeo is visiting that country this week.

All of which just proves once again that one of the very best things about the disappearing legacy of Barack Obama is that we no longer have a simpleton like John O. Brennan running the CIA.

Just another day in the Obama legacy is almost gone America.

That is all.

Comey the Corrupt Drama Queen Gets His Media-fed Moment [Updated]

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Tired of all this Winning yet?  – Congressional Budget Office (CBO) economists now admit that the Trump tax cuts will more than pay for themselves.  In a report released yesterday – and studiously ignored by the fake news media, mainly because none of the CBO economists look like a porn star – the CBO now admits it vastly underestimated the tax cuts’ impact on economic growth, estimating that they will raise such growth by a full percentage point.

None of this is surprising, given that the CBO’s method requires them to use a “static” analysis, which does not allow them to take the economy-stimulating impacts of tax cuts into account.  The reality is that even CBO’s new analysis is likely to be extremely conservative due to that fact.

So all those Democrat/fake news media talking points about how the tax cuts are going to explode the deficit?  Just more lies.  But you already knew that.

Democrats in Action. – Mike Pompeo’s senate confirmation hearing to become our next Secretary of State began on Thursday, and lunatic New Jersey Senator Corey Booker zeroed in like a laser on the crucial foreign policy issue of the day:  During his allotted 5 minutes of time, Booker asked Pompeo not once, not twice, but three times about his views on…wait for it…oh, you gotta wait for this one…gay sex!  Yes, the very ambitious Mr. Booker, who plans to pursue the Democrat nomination for the presidency in 2020, thinks the most important thing he and the American people need to know about the guy who will likely become the nation’s chief diplomat is what he thinks about what gay people do in the privacy of their own bedrooms.

Somehow, I don’t think that particular issue is likely to come up during the upcoming negotiations with the Crazy Little Fat Guy in North Korea.  Just a guess.

Can’t they just secede from the union instead?  That would be much better. – The London Telegraph reports that activists in California have now moved a step closer to carving the Golden State up into three smaller states, thanks to the efforts of Hotmail founder Tim Draper.  Draper’s funding helped ensure that a petition effort was able to collect 600,000 signatures from California residents in favor of holding a referendum on the matter, far more than the needed 364,000, which represents approximately 1% of California’s current population.

Those of you who are worried about the prospect of adding 4 additional Californians along the lines of San Fran Nan, Maxine Waters, Dianne Feinstein or Kamala Harris to the U.S. senate can breathe easy, since, even if this referendum should succeed, it would require super-majority approval in both houses of congress to go into effect, and that isn’t going to happen.  It’s still fun to watch, though.

James Comey’s long-anticipated book hit the shelves on Thursday, and boy is it a doozy.  In the book, the bi-polar drama queen former ex-FBI Director and current Twitter savant says that President Trump is “untethered to the truth,” and acts like a mob boss.

It is fair to point out that this is the very same James Comey whose leadership turned the FBI into a rogue, outlaw organization, an organization that ignored its mandated duties in order to coordinate an effort to steal an election and, having failed at that, reverse its outcome.  This is the same James Comey who led a completely phony “investigation” into the Clinton email scandal, the same James Comey who wrote a memo exonerating the Pantsuit Princess of all charges four months before he had bothered to even interview her or any of her chief assistants.

This is the same James Comey who has committed perjury multiple times before congressional committees, the same James Comey who most likely ordered Andrew McCabe to forge his notes from his interview of General James Flynn, the same James Comey who we know leaked classified information to the New York Times and stole government property on his way out the door when he was fired.

In other words, were James Comey a witness to a murder, the prosecution’s lawyers would never call him to the stand to testify, because the defense lawyers would rip him to shreds and leave him crying like a little, 6’8″ tall girl.

I’ve often pointed out that the Clintons’ favorite political tactic is projection, i.e., whenever they’re guilty of some bad act, they deflect attention by accusing their opponents of exactly the same bad behavior.  Mr. Comey’s book demonstrates that he learned a lot from the Clintons while conducting his sham investigation.

Naturally, the first televised interview this deluded paragon of virtue will conduct about the book is with ABC’s fake host George Stephanopolous, who spent a decade serving as a toady for Bill and Hillary Clinton.  ABC’s promo ad for the interview shows Georgie tossing out a series of predictably softball questions to an apparently mute Comey.  If you play a drinking game during the interview in which you take a shot of tequila every time Comey is asked a tough question, you will end the night completely sober.  Because that’s what the fake news media does.

Just another day in fake news media and demented Democrats America.

That is all.

Update:  Just to prove that he reads the Campaign Update each and every morning, President Trump issued the following two tweets within 30 minutes of this piece going live:

 

So.  Damn.  Awesome.  Never, never, never, ever stop tweeting, Mr. President.  Please, never stop.

The Evening Campaign Update: A Very Eventful Week in Review

The Evening Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

As always seems to be the case, it’s been a really interesting week in many ways.  Let’s review some of the highlights…

The week began on Saturday with President Trump holding a rally for GOP congressional candidate Rick Saccone, during which he referred quite accurately to California Rep. Maxine Waters as “a low-IQ individual” and called NBC’s “Meet the Press” host Chuck Todd a “sleepy sonofabitch.”

In response, every Democrat on the planet called President Trump a racist – which is what they do whenever they want to take a break from calling him Hitler or Putin’s puppet – and Mr. Todd woke up from his 3rd nap of the day.

On the Sunday morning fakenews shows, the fake Indian senator from Massachusetts, Elizabeth “Little Never Shuts Up” Warren refused to concede that maybe, just maybe she should take a DNA test in order to prove her fake Indian heritage, which of course doesn’t exist.  She then also made it very clear that she is running for president in 2020 by denying she is running for president in 2020.

The Pantsuit Princess spent the week humiliating herself in India, causing so much reputational harm to the Democrat Party with her verbal gaffes and pratfalls that even many Democrats were begging her to just shut the hell up already and go away.  The problem is, even when she goes away, she doesn’t go away, as the images below attest:

A picture is worth 1,000 words, as they say, and those pictures travel all over the world in a micro-second.

On Monday, Irish Beto O’Rourke, the former “Rising star” of the Texas Democrat Party, committed political hari-kari before an audience at the SXSW Festival in Austin, coming out forcefully in favor of gun control in a state in which gun rights are not a partisan issue.  Irish Beto got him a standing ovation from the SXSW audience, but he’d get his butt run out little cafes and barbershops in places like Big Spring, Cotulla, Poth and Hico by Republicans and Democrats alike for uttering his anti-gun heresies.

The Democrats recovered somewhat on Tuesday, as their guy, Conor Lamb, defeated Saccone by a scant margin in the special congressional election.  The GOP announced later in the week that it will ask for a recount and an audit of the automated voting machines used in the election, after receiving reports of irregularities from many voters.  But at the moment, the seat appears to belong to Mr. Lamb.

Secretary of State Rex Tillerson got his walking papers via a presidential tweet early Wednesday morning, after having one disagreement too many with his boss.  He’ll be replaced by CIA Director Mike Pompeo, assuming the Republicans can muster up 50 votes to confirm him.  We’ll see.

Also on Wednesday, students all over the country walked out of classrooms and took to the streets to pretend they actually know something about gun control.  The hooky-playing trio below perfectly captured the spirit – and level of actual knowledge – on display at the rallies:

*sigh*

By the way, Democrats want to give 16 year-olds like these – who were likely swallowing Tide pods at parties a month ago – voting rights.  Of course, Democrats would advocate for giving chipmunks and weasels the right to vote if they believed chipmunks and weasels could be as easily brainwashed to reliably vote for Democrats as these kids have been.

Wednesday was a very busy day, and to round it all out, economist Larry Kudlow was named by the President as the replacement for the fired Gary Cohn – a major upgrade – and we found out that the DOJ Office of Professional Responsibility had given AG Jeff Sessions a firing recommendation related to former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, a decision Sessions must make by the end of the day on Sunday.  As I write this on Friday afternoon, Sessions naturally has made no announcement.  We’ll see.

Thursday came, and this happened:

Is any further explanation really necessary?  Nope.

On Friday, thanks to great real journalist Mollie Hemingway, we found out that deep state cabal FBI agent Peter Strzok had a personal relationship with the original judge in the Mike Flynn case, Rudolph Contreras.  Texts between Strzok and his mistress, FBI lawyer Lisa Page, reveal that the two planned to try to exert influence Judge Contreras when they discovered that he had been appointed to serve on the FISA court.

This latest of a series of revelations derived from the Strzok/Page text treasure trove may well explain why Judge Contreras was hastily removed from the Flynn case in early December, after Contreras had accepted Flynn’s guilty plea for lying to the FBI.  Of course, we now know that Flynn was not really guilty of that crime, but pleaded as he did because Robert Mueller and team of inquisitioners were driving him into bankruptcy and threatening his family.  Hopefully, that great injustice will be corrected soon.

Liberal lawyer Alan Dershowitz called on the Democrat Party to fire Deputy DNC Chairman Keith Ellison for his lying about his close ties to the despicable anti-Semite Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan.  Dershowitz also said that any Democrat congress member who has associated with Farrakhan should resign their office.

Dershowitz’s demands were unsurprisingly met with stony silence from every Democrat on earth and the fake news media outlets that serve as the Democrat Party’s propaganda wing.

Some things never change.

That is all.

The New York Times: All the #FakeNews That Fits

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Warning:  If Everything is Sexist, Nothing is Sexist. – House Democrat Caucus leader Joe Crowley told reporters on Thursday that efforts by Republican congressional candidates to tie their Democrat challengers to House Sepaker San Fran Nan are “sexist.”  Crowley did not offer any explanation as to why Republicans criticizing the obviously incompetent, disgraceful Pelosi is sexist, but Democrat efforts to demonize every Republican woman on the face of the earth is not, and of course none of the fake journalists present would have dared to pose one of their Democrat heroes a followup question asking for more information.

But the reason behind Crowley’s statement is obvious:   Democrats know that their doddering Majority Leader is their biggest handicap in the mid-term elections.  They realize that it’s worth several percentage points to every GOP candidate to use images of her and clips from her outrageous statements in their campaign ads, so their plan is to declare Republicans as being sexist for doing so.  It’s just part of the Democrats’ Saul Alinsky-driven playbook.

Somewhere in India, the Pantsuit Princess is berating Huma Abedin for nothing thinking of this racket first. – The UK Daily Mail reports that swamp skunk former FBI Director James Comey is about to embark on a nationwide tour promoting his new book, and he will be holding promotional events to which attendees must fork over $97 per ticket.  I swear I didn’t make that up.  Obviously, there are too many Americans who are really, really hard up for entertainment.  Someone should tell them about Netflix.

Speaking of the Fainting Felon, it turns out that “sprained hand” reported on Thursday was actually a fractured wrist.  The Grasping Grifter injured the wrist when she she slipped in the bathtub in her hotel room in the city of Jodhpur, according to reports.  If you’re interested, here’s a photo of the marble-cased tub, courtesy of the Daily Mail:

The Cackling Crank is obviously not staying at the Holiday Inn Express while on her India tour.  That’s for those “Deplorables” out there in flyover country.

The Washington Post is reporting that President Trump has definitely decided to get rid of National Security Advisor H.R. McMaster, so I guess McMaster will survive after all.  I mean, it’s the WaPo, which has filed almost as many false reports based on confidential “sources” as the New York Times over the last few years related to Trump.

According to the WaPo, former UN Ambassador John Bolton is Trump’s first choice to fill the job, but the Post also rolls out the names of National Security Council member Joseph “Keith” Kellogg and current White House Homeland Security Adviser Tom Bossert as potential replacements.

It’s interesting to note that White House spokesman Sarah Huckabee Sanders denied the WaPo report late Thursday evening via Twitter:

One would hope the President wouldn’t leave his press spokesman hanging out to dry like this, but it wouldn’t be the first time that happened, so we’ll just have to see how the day goes.

And speaking of fake reporting by fake news media outlets… – In case you missed it, Clinton shill Maggie Haberman and some other fake reporter at the New York Times named Michael Schmidt issued a breathless report on Thursday that Special Counsel Robert Mueller has subpoenaed records from the Trump Organization.  Oh, my word!  Dogs and cats living together, mass hysteria!

Folks, the Trump Organization has been responding to and complying with Mueller’s subpoenas for records since last Summer, when such activity was reported by the NYTimes and other fake news outlets.  In fact, yesterday’s story quotes Alan Futerfas, who is a lawyer with the Trump Organization, as saying the following:   “Since July 2017, we have advised the public that the Trump Organization is fully cooperative with all investigations, including the special counsel, and is responding to their requests. This is old news and our assistance and cooperation with the various investigations remains the same today.”

This is not just “old news,”, is not news at all.  What it is is an effort by the Times – and the unidentified criminal leakers in the Mueller team – to keep the Trump/Russia collusion fantasy on the front page of its fake newspaper.  In fact, Haberman and Schmidt can’t even attribute this story directly to those leakers – their attribution instead is to “two people briefed on the matter,” which could be a couple of guys who, over drinks with one of the Mueller flunkies at the Old Ebbitt Grill, heard the flunkie say “yeah, we tossed out another subpoena to the Trump Organization yesterday.”  Seriously, it could mean almost anything.

Haberman/Schmidt’s big “hook” in their fake story is this passage:   “The Trump Organization has said that it never had real estate holdings in Russia, but witnesses recently interviewed by Mr. Mueller have been asked about a possible real estate deal in Moscow.”   So, because some witnesses have been “asked” by Mueller’s Clinton/Obama-shill lawyers about a “possible real estate deal in Moscow,” Haberman/Schmidt want the reader to think this is somehow evidence of Trump “collusion” with Russia.

Note what that passage does not say:  It does not say that even a single witness has confirmed any Trump real estate deal in Moscow, or how, even if such a deal did take place years ago, that would in any way lead to a joint effort between the Trump Campaign and Vladimir Putin to influence the outcome of the 2016 election.

The Haberman/Schmidt story is the very definition of FAKE NEWS.  It is nothing more than an attempt to dress up old news as new news in order to try to influence public opinion against the current President of the United States.  It’s a disgrace to journalism, but then, it is the New York Times, so that pretty much goes without saying these days.

Just another day in Fake News America.

That is all.
