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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

John Barrasso

Susan Collins

Steve Daines

Mike Enzi

Jeff Flake

Jim Moran

Lisa Murkowski

Ben Sasse

John Thune

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

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

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

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

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

A Florida Tragedy Overshadows Schiff and Fauxcahontas

Tired of all this Winning yet? – The new Morning Consult Poll is out, and guess what?  It now has the Republicans leading the Democrats in the generic congressional ballot for the first time in more than a year.  The Ds led the Rs by 10 as recently as December 18.   Meanwhile, President Trump’s job approval rating shot up in this poll, to 47% approve vs. 47% disapprove.  Hey, remember all those breathless predictions in the fake news media of a Democrat tidal wave election coming in the November mid-terms?  Yeah, we’re not seeing those anymore.

Guessing this wasn’t part of the approved Democrat/Fake news media talking points. – Bug-eyed CA congressman Adam Schiff, speaking at a media-sponsored breakfast Wednesday morning, confirmed the White House’s position about his 10-page rebuttal memo to the House Intel Committee’s FISA Abuse Memo.  Schiff told the audience in attendance that “We need to go through that and identify that which remains classified and would implicate sources and methods or investigative interests.”

Wait, what???  Haven’t we just gone through five days of Schiff whining that the White House had no legitimate reason to send his booby-trap-filled tome back to the Committee for cleaning?  Before yesterday morning, Schiff, Nancy Pelosi and all their fake journalist friends had simply ignored the fact that the FBI and DOJ had identified numerous areas in which the Democrat memo would reveal classified information and betray sources and methods.  Now suddenly, Mr. Bug Eyes has spilled the beans.  That was obviously not a part of the plan, since the Daily Caller was one of only a handful of media outlets to report on Schiff’s obviously unintentional moment of honesty.  Somewhere, San Fran Nan is fuming.

Senator Elizabeth Fauxcahontas Warren, speaking at a gathering of real, actual, legitimate Native Americans, told the gathering that although she has absolutely no evidence whatsoever of any kind that her mother came from any sort of native American heritage, “no one — not even the president of the United States — will ever take that part of me away.”  Wait, what “part” of you would that be – the pathological liar part?  The cultural appropriation part?  The part where you invented the false claim of native American heritage so you could get a job at Harvard?  It’s all so confusing.  And pathetic.  And shameful.  And hilarious.

So, let’s see here…yet another troubled young man from a broken home who had a history of torturing animals and was a “loner” and who his classmates and teachers did everything they could to stay away from because he was so threatening to them and who had actually been kicked out of school for violent and threatening behavior and who had been in therapy but quit going a year ago and who we will most likely find out soon was taking some form of anti-depression or anti-psychotic medications shot and killed 17 people at his former high school yesterday.  Man, nobody could have possibly seen that coming.  Well, except for those surviving students who told reporters that “we all knew this was coming.”

Of course, immediately the fake news media and all the perpetually outraged social justice warriors took to their Twitter feeds and CNN/MSNBC discussion panels to assign full blame for this tragedy on…the inanimate object.  Thus ends any hope that our society might, just this once, take a step back and look at the real causes that led to this tragedy and maybe even try to do something effective to prevent future such atrocities.  You know, things like taking potentially violent mental illness more seriously, like employing some intelligent profiling and threat assessment procedures, like forcing every public school to employ armed security personnel so that potential bad actors will know they are going to be met by a good guy with a gun.

Instead, we will today be treated to the exact same fruitless politicized finger-pointing we have seen after every tragic school mass shooting since Columbine, ending quickly all hope that anything effective might take place.  So, some months down the road, another mass school shooting will take place, and the perpetrator will inevitably have the exact same profile described above, after which the same exact fruitless finger-pointing will ensue, and shocked students who thankfully weren’t harmed will once again say “we all knew this was coming.”

Everyone, that is, except the people who could have done something to prevent it.

Just another day in our country is certifiably insane America.

That is all.

Donald Trump Just Keeps on Winning, and Pelosi and Schumer Have no Answer to it

Tired of all this Winning yet?  Part I – The Democrats are starting to have second thoughts about their “all Trump hate, all the time” fake strategy for prevailing in this year’s mid-term elections.   McClatchy News  reports that, as the Rasmussen survey has the President’s approval rating hovering near 50%, the Democrats’ own internal polling has his standing now at 44%, up from 40% in November.  Even worse for the Dems, their generic congressional polling has them now sitting with just a 46-42 advantage, less than half of their edge just a few months ago.  The memo accompanying the polling stated “While still on track for a successful November, the extent of Democratic gains will be blunted if Democrats do not reengage more aggressively in speaking to the economic and health care priorities of voters.”  Yeah, after 15 months of nothing but hating Trump, it’s doubtful most Democrats even know how to do that at this point.  Nothing makes my day like the smell of Democrat panic in the morning.  Smells like Winning.

Tired of all this Winning yet?  Part II – The National Federation of Independent Businesses reports that expansionist sentiment among small business owners hit an all-time high in January.  “One in five small companies said they plan to boost hiring…The new tax law “produced the most recent boost to small-business optimism,” NFIB’s William Dunkelberg and Holly Wade said in a report.”  Guess this is more of those crumbs San Fran Nan keeps whining about.

Tired of all this Winning yet?  Part III – Lunatic Marxist congressman Luis Gutierrez of Illinois told a rally of “dozens” of DACA advocates out in San Diego yesterday that he is planning on running for President!  Talk about a gift wrapped in gold for Republicans – a Guiterrez candidacy would put the perfect face on the Democrat Party:  snarling, unstable, hateful, incoherent and just not very bright in general.  Let’s all wish the congressman well in his pursuit of the Party’s nomination in 2020.

In case you missed it, the Susan Rice CYA email to Susan Rice is creating several ripple effects.  Last night’s Evening Campaign Update noted that one impact from the email is that it is raising the public profile of Sally Yates again, making her a central figure in the whole Deep State Cabal.  But another bit of fallout is that the email indicates that James Comey lied to congress yet again, this time when he told a congressional committee on June 8, 2017 that he had only met privately with President Obama twice, and named the dates.

The Rice to Rice email says that Comey actually met privately with President Obama after the general January 5 meeting her email describes, which included Yates and Joe Biden, among others.  January 5 was not one of the dates Comey rolled out to congress.  So, either Rice is lying or Comey lied, and goodness knows, neither option would come as any surprise to anyone at this point.

If you are worried about the Republicans and President Trump getting cold feet over the next couple of weeks and surrendering on the DACA issue without getting other immigration reforms in return, well, stop it.  It’s not going to happen.

The Democrats simply have zero political leverage in this situation – other than whatever leverage John McCain and Lindsey Graham surrender to them, of course – and really have no means of forcing a bad deal here.  They don’t have the votes to get anything done, public opinion has tilted to the President’s side, and even many of the DACA “kids” (Average age:  26) have taken to advocating that the Democrats agree to a border wall and other major reforms in order to get the DACA fix.

President Trump remains very clear on this:  He will veto any “clean” DACA bill that surrenders on the other immigration reforms he wants, which is what bills offered by McCain and Graham do.  We should have all figured out by now that Mr. Trump does not make these public statements just to hear himself talk, like our previous White House occupant was fond of doing.

The President has repeatedly informed Chuck Schumer and his fake news media slaves that DACA will expire on March 5 without a comprehensive deal on immigration.  Schumer, Pelosi and other Democrat “leaders,” such as they are, are in a panic over this, since they have never wanted to do a comprehensive immigration bill because they’ve always wanted to keep it alive as a campaign issue.

But that was in the days when public opinion was in their favor.  With even the heavily-biased polling organizations showing public opinion having now shifted to President Trump’s favor, they now have no means of convincing weak-kneed RINOs – other than McCain and Graham, of course – to surrender and give them the “clean” DACA-only bill they want.

So, stop worrying, folks.  The next couple of weeks will either deliver a package that includes a DACA fix, funding for a border wall and other enhanced security measures, heavy restrictions on chain migration and an end to the insane diversity lottery system, or there will be no bill at all, and DACA will indeed expire on March 5.

Because Donald Trump has shown even Mitch McConnell and Paul Ryan that winning is better than unilateral surrender.

Just another day in Trump just keeps on winning America.

That is all.

The Evening Campaign Update: A Really Bad Week For The Deep State Cabal

The week began with release of the FISA Abuse Memo and the fake media/Democrat campaign to try to diminish the importance of that bombshell detailing of the organized corruption at the high levels of the Obama FBI and DOJ.  In the midst of a wide-ranging interview with Bret Baier, House Intel Committee Chairman Devin Nunes dropped the huge bomb that his next missive will detail how John Kerry’s State Department was also involved in all the corruption.  Kerry’s enormous jaw no doubt hit the floor when hearing of Nunes’ comment, and he apparently still hasn’t pried it back up since he’s been unusually quiet this week.  Then again, lawyering up probably doesn’t leave much time for public engagements or scheming with Middle Eastern terrorists.

Next day, some moron UT professor named Steve Vladek issued possibly the dumbest op-ed piece NBC has ever published (which is saying an awful lot, but there it is) in which he claimed that FBI Director Christopher Wray simply MUST resign over the issuance of the FISA Memo.  Yet, despite Vladek’s plaintive cries and CNN’s previous prediction that Wray would indeed resign, the FBI Director’s position remains filled.  Sorry, all you waiting candidates out there.

Also on Sunday, the Philadelphia Eagles won the Super Bowl, and their fans immediately burned and looted half the city.  Nothing like a “victory” celebration in any major city run for decades by Democrats.

On Monday, cranky old John McCain, working with the execrable Delaware Democrat Chris Coons, introduced a budget compromise bill that would include a unilateral GOP surrender on the whole DACA issue.  His proposal was to grant the DACA “kids” (Average age:  26) legal status while getting absolutely no real concessions from the Democrats on other immigration-related issues.  That’s our John!

Bug-eyed California Congresscreep Adam Schiff lied a lot this week, even more than usual.  He lied shamelessly about what would be in the FISA Abuse Memo, lied about its contents after it was released, lied every time CNN interviewed him, lied in an op-ed he published, lied about the process the House Intel Committee was using to get his own fake memo released, and lied about what that fake memo contained.  He lied so much it was pretty much impossible to keep up with, and I gave up doing so at some point Wednesday afternoon.

Tuesday was even more hilarious for Schiff, with the release of an audio tape showing him getting caught in his own attempt to get dirt on President Trump from an agent of a foreign government.  Unfortunately for the over-eager Schiff, the guy at the other end of the phone turned out to be just a Russian comedian playing a prank on him.  Prank or not, if there was such a crime as “collusion” (there isn’t) Schiff would have to be lawyering up like John Kerry right now.

Wednesday was very eventful, beginning as it did with the release of a raft of new texts from the FBI love birds Peter Strzok and Lisa Page, one of which pointed the finger of conspiracy straight at former President Barack Hussein Obama.  It was also the day President Trump told reporters he’d be glad to just shut down the government if the budget bill working its way through congress didn’t contain funding for his border wall, a DACA “fix” and other immigration reforms.  By Friday, he was signing a budget-busting compromise that contained none of those things.

Wednesday also saw the release of the unredacted Grassley/Graham criminal referral on British Agent Michael Steele – who, along with a bunch of Russians, made up most of the fake Trump Dossier for Hillary Clinton and the DNC – that was sent over to the DOJ a couple of weeks ago.  That letter completely confirms everything in the FISA Abuse Memo, and thus has been studiously ignored by the fake news media.  Because that’s what the fake news media does.

Finally, Wednesday was also the day when San Fran Nan spent 8 hours imagining she was a senator, as she put on a fake filibuster for all those DACA “kids” (Average age:  26) who she and her Party were about to throw under the bus.  By early Friday morning, the bus-throwing had been completed.

FBI informant Douglas Campbell, who has been singing to the FBI about his inside knowledge of the machinations behind the Uranium One scandal, sang before the staff of three congressional committees behind closed doors Wednesday afternoon.  His written testimony implicates the Pantsuit Princess and her fake foundation in a classic influence peddling scheme.

Senator Rand Paul put on a real filibuster Thursday night, pissing off a bunch of his colleagues who were hoping to bust the budget quickly and then go get a nice steak at the Capitol Grille.

Virginia Senator Mark Warner was revealed to have been secretly exchanging texts for weeks with the lobbyists for a Russian oligarch in his desperate efforts to make contact with the aforementioned Christopher Steele.  This was all with the full knowledge of North Carolina Republican Richard Burr, who is the Chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee, where Warner is the ranking Democrat.  If  you wonder why that committee hasn’t been involved in the real investigations into Democrat wrongdoing like the House Intel, Senate Judiciary and House Judiciary Committees have been, it’s because Burr and Warner are both deep state skunks, and the GOP chairmen of those other committees know it.

Finally, in case you missed it, Thursday also saw not one, but two resignations by senior officials at DOJ and the FBI who have been named repeatedly in the Strzok/Page texting frenzy:  Mike Kortan, FBI assistant director for public affairs, and the chief of the Justice Department’s Counterintelligence and Export Control Section, David Laufman.  Laufman’s resignation is effective immediately, and Kortan’s is effective next week.  If you think these are just normal course of business resignations, you need to play closer attention.

These two hasty resignations now bring the number to 9 senior officials at DOJ or the FBI who have either been fired, reassigned to menial positions or allowed to “resign” in the last 9 weeks.  Toss in disgraced former bi-polar FBI Director James Comey, whose firing last May kicked off this systematic housecleaning of deep state bad actors, and it’s an even 10.

In the age of Trump, this is what is known as Winning.  Bigly.

Just another crazy week in America.

Pelosi, McConnell, Schumer and Ryan Just Raised the Mortgage on Your Kids’ and Grandkids’ Futures Again

Tired of all this Winning yet?  Part I – Food stamp enrollments dropped by more than 4 million from October to November of last year, the Labor Department announced yesterday.  That is the largest single-month decrease in such filings ever recorded.

Tired of all this Winning yet?  Part II – The Labor Department also reported that new claims for unemployment benefits last week dropped to 221,000, the lowest number of such claims recorded in 45 years.  So despite the ongoing correction in the stock markets, the economy just keeps winning.

I’ve always said that the best way to avoid shutting down 14% of the government was to throw $300 billion at it.  Doing that will always, without fail, get you 9 Democrat votes in the Senate, satisfy all the war hawks like Lindsey Graham and John McCain, and let all the Republican squishes like Mitch McConnell and Susan Collins go back to their states and brag about how well they are “governing.”  Oh, yay.

So, when you see your kids, grandkids and great grandkids today, give ’em a big hug and thank them for allowing us all to keep living so well on all their highly-mortgaged futures, because the bill for all of this is going to come due at some point on their watch.  Or, if you prefer, you can just say nothing and feel guilty about it, which is what most of us will do.  Either way, the bill will be the same.

On the positive side, the budget deal does include much-needed additional funding for the military, along with the long-promised-but-never-delivered emergency relief funding for the victims of all the major hurricanes that made landfall last year.  On the down side, the deal includes more than $130 billion in new social spending that will just raise the baseline budgets for an array of ineffective and often counterproductive social programs, and which will be used by Democrat politicians all over America to buy votes in November.

The bill contains nothing for the DACA “kids” (Average age: 26), and indeed, nothing on any other immigration-related matter.  So the next few weeks will be consumed by news of fake negotiations over all that stuff, as the Democrats, in their never-ending bad faith, put on a show for the DACA kids one more time, only to throw them under the bus yet again come March 5.  Because the Democrats are not going to agree to any significant immigration reforms, and the President is not going to agree to any DACA “fix” that does not included border security funding, severe limitations on chain migration, and the end to the insane visa lottery fiasco.

In other good news this morning, the LAPD has referred no less than three criminal cases to the District Attorney’s office in La-La-Land, meaning at least one of Hollywood’s many, many monsters might actually go to prison for serial sexual abuse and assault on pretty much every woman he ever came into contact with, except for Hillary, Meryl and Oprah.  Cool.

Speaking of woman abusers, how about this Rob Porter guy, huh?  If you hadn’t figured it out already, Mr. Porter is this week’s fake news media excuse for not covering all the incredibly scandalous developments involving a growing array of Democrats.  Not that that excuses Porter’s alleged bad behavior – if it is indeed true – but the amount of obsessive attention all the fake news outlets have given this story is scandalous in and of itself.

Yes, it is a damn shame – again, if the allegations made by his former wives are true – that a sleaze like this managed to get past those vaunted FBI background checks (maybe those checks were performed by Peter Strzok and Lisa Page, who would have been too tied up texting each other to actually do the work) and work in the White House for more than a year.  But let’s face it, hundreds of people work in and around the White House every day, and the sad odds are that any workplace involving that many people is going to be home to at least one such sleazeball, perhaps more.  Hell, from 1993 through 2000, that guy was in fact the president.  That’s the nature of our society today.

If this were the Obama Administration, the Porter story would have been completely hushed up by the fake news media.  Maybe Fox News might have spent a couple of minutes on it.  But this is the Trump Administration, where any excuse to ignore the latest developments in the biggest political scandal in American history is going to be amplified beyond all imagination by fake reporters and editors who are desperate to avoid doing their actual jobs.

Because that’s what the fake news media does.  No wonder the Newseum in Washington, DC, which is nothing more than a monument to a time long past when America actually once had a functioning profession we quaintly referred to as “journalism,” is about to go bankrupt.  A perfect metaphor for a dead profession.

Just another day in fake news media America.

Democrats Prepare to Toss the DACA “Kids” Under the Bus One More Time

The all-knowing, all-seeing, omnipotent “global warming” can now change your personality.  No kidding.  So claim researchers at the Columbia Business School (why are researchers at a “business” school studying global warming?).   “As climate change continues across the world, we may also observe concomitant changes in human personality,” reads the study, published in the journal Nature on Tuesday.  Hey, it’s already working on me – every time I read an article about some fake study making some increasingly bizarre claim about the effects of “global warming”, it pisses me off that much more.

San Fran Nan is even more confused than normal today.  As I write this, she is now in the 7th hour of conducting what can only be termed a “filibuster” on the floor of the house, having been standing there reading stuff since mid-morning.  The trouble is, the filibuster rule only applies in the senate, where she has never been a member.  The creeping dementia she’s been displaying over the last several years has finally set in for good.  Sad!

By the way, in case you’re curious, what San Fran Nan is really doing is putting on a show for the DACA “kids” (average age:  26), because her party is about to toss them under the bus in the budget negotiations, so that they don’t get blamed for shutting down the government again.  Early this morning, Chuck Schumer and Mitch McConnell announced they’d reached an agreement to fund the government for the remainder of FY 2018 and through FY 2019, removing all the sequester caps in the process.

The deal includes half a trillion dollars in new military and domestic spending over those two years, so all the budget hawks in the House are going to hate it.  But the deal does NOT include any language on the DACA issue, which is going to throw the Democrats’ leftwing base into a frenzy of rage, yet again.  Pelosi and Schumer obviously made a deal with members of their caucus that she would conduct her fake “filibuster” for show on the floor of the House so that none of the Democrat members of the Senate would conduct a real filibuster and potentially kill this deal.

In the end, the Democrats are going to agree to this deal to get their hands on more domestic money they can buy votes with in exchange for a promise on a DACA vote next week.  Which, of course, means they are getting literally NOTHING, since McConnell and Speaker Paul Ryan already made that promise as a part of ending the 14% government shutdown that took place just a few weeks ago.

Pelosi and Schumer are betting that their voters are too stupid to remember that little reality.  Sadly, they’re probably right.

The one chink in the armor on this deal is whether the President will sign it when it comes to his desk.  He’s made it very clear he wants a comprehensive deal on immigration issues included in any budget deal, and that is obviously not a part of the Schumer/McConnell deal.  On the other hand, the deal does include most of the increased military spending Defense Secretary Mattis has asked for, and President Trump probably has little real objection to the increases in domestic spending that it includes.

It also seems unlikely that the President would be at all enthusiastic about having a vote on a “clean” DACA bill, given that that issue is his real leverage in getting concessions out of the Democrats on border security and other immigration reforms.  Absent that leverage, none of those reforms will happen.  Period.  Also, since the deal would well and truly bust the budget in a huge way, it would also likely be the death knell for any unfunded infrastructure plan Mr. Trump has stated he wants to pursue.

His campaign promises on immigration, more than any other factor, is what got Donald Trump elected.  And poll after poll shows strong majorities of Americans supporting the President’s position on those issues.  Is he willing to just let that all go in order to get two years of increased military spending?  Because that’s what this deal boils down to for him, and he knows that better than anyone.

The next 48 hours are going to be a very consequential time for our country.

That is all.

[NOTE:  A few minutes after this piece was posted, President Trump tweeted the following:  “The Budget Agreement today is so important for our great Military. It ends the dangerous sequester and gives Secretary Mattis what he needs to keep America Great. Republicans and Democrats must support our troops and support this Bill!”  Obviously, the President intends to sign the bill if it comes to his desk.  Also, Speaker Ryan issued a statement promising a vote in the coming weeks on “immigration reforms,” but not on a “clean” DACA bill that Pelosi says she wants.  Thus, Trump can sign this budget bill and still retain his leverage in immigration negotiations.  Cool.]

Evening Campaign Update: CNN Goes All #FakeNews On Christopher Wray, Again

So, I gave a lunchtime speech to a group about the Trump tax plan, and when I come out of the building and get in my car, the first thing I hear on my trusty AM radio is that FBI Director Christopher Wray has threatened to resign.

Wait, what????  Three days after he “removes” Andrew McCabe from the Hoover Building less than 24 hours after he read the FISA Abuse Memo, Wray is supposed to suddenly be so overwrought about the possible release of that very same memo that he’s threatening to quit unless he gets his way?  My first reaction to this – which was reported by Fox Radio News, so I thought might actually be true – was that if Christopher Wray really is such a mercurial, pedantic drama queen, then the only appropriate response from President Trump upon receiving his letter of resignation would be to say “Adios.”

But then came the bottom of the hour, and this time I listened more closely and discovered that this story actually originated at…wait for it…CNN.  Oh, well, then, it’s obviously fake news.

And sure enough, later in the day, NBC and others knocked the story down.

Of course, we’ve been here before.  It was just January 23 when CNN last claimed that Wray had threatened to resign, then over a nudge from Attorney General Jeff Sessions to maybe get rid of …wait for it…oh, you have to wait for this one…Andrew McCabe!  I swear I don’t make this stuff up, the very same Andrew McCabe who Wray had “removed” from the Hoover building on January 29!  Yes, CNN’s vaunted “White House sources” – if they really exist – have now gone to the “Christopher Wray is threatening to resign” well two times in the last nine days.

The latest CNN fake Christopher Wray is gonna resign story is just the latest signal that the deep state skunks at DOJ and the FBI, along with their deep state agents in the fake news media, are truly apoplectic about the impending release of the FISA Abuse Memo.  CNN’s fake story was not even the first desperation move of the day – that come from bug-eyed Adam Schiff, who tweeted out the easily-refuted false allegation that House Intel Chairman Devin Nunes had made “material changes” to the memo between the time the Committee voted to release it, and the time it was handed off to the White House.  Turns out that all Nunes did was correct some syntax and punctuation errors.

After Schiff’s goofy tweet, San Fran Nan weighed in with a delirious diatribe attacking Nunes [Note: An earlier version of this mistakenly said “Schiff”.  Obviously, San Fran Nan isn’t going to attack her own guy.] personally and accusing him of drafting the memo in coordination with the White House.  Obviously, also 100% false.

In the end, all of the fake news and personal attacks won’t change anything.  The memo will be released to the public.  The President approved it today and sent it back to Nunes to be released at the Committee’s discretion.  It’s a done deal.

Here’s how you know just how damaging the Democrats know this will be to their interests:  Schiff viewed the memo more than a week ago now, and not a single passage from it has appeared in the New York Times or on CNN.  You can be sure that if this memo contained any real factual errors or anything positive for the Democrats, those parts of it would already be public.

This evening, Republicans are playing down expectations for how damaging the memo will be.  That is obviously not the expectations among congressional Democrats or their agents at CNN.

The memo could be released to the public as early as tomorrow morning.  Let the fun begin.

That is all.

The State of Our Union is that the Democrats Must be Defeated in Every Possible Way

  • Tired of all this Winning yet? – President Donald Trump (I never tire of typing those words) gave a wonderful State of the Union Address Tuesday night.  The speech was filled with soaring rhetoric about American unity, American greatness and America’s renewed place of leadership in the world.  So naturally the Democrats hated it.
  • The speech talked about the creation of 2.4 million new jobs since Trump took office, record low unemployment and the booming stock market.  So naturally the Democrats hated it.
  • The speech talked about our flag and what it means, the millions of Americans who have sacrificed for it, and why it is important to honor the flag by standing for our national anthem.  So naturally the Democrats hated it.
  • The speech talked about taking care of America’s veterans, so many of whom continue to return from our military ventures in the Middle East wounded, either physically or mentally, and the President’s ongoing program to reform the Veteran’s Administration in order to make it more responsive to the needs of these brave men and women.  So naturally the Democrats hated it.
  • The speech talked about the recently-passed tax cuts that will allow more than 90% of U.S. income taxpayers to keep more of the money they, not the government, earned.  So naturally the Democrats hated it.
  • The speech talked about the Trump Administration’s plans to unleash the nation’s energy industries and how that is already giving our country a new-found edge in international negotiations.  So naturally the Democrats hated it.
  • On and on and on it went, this speech filled with lofty imagery and easy applause lines for any person who actually cares about America to take advantage of, only to have the TV cameras pan to Democrats sitting on their hands.  Nancy Pelosi sat in her seat all night, nervously working her mouth in a constantly in-motion snarl that made it look for all the world as if she’d swallowed a hamster.  The Congressional Black Caucus sat on its hands, even as the President pointed to the happy recent reality of an all-time record low recording of Black unemployment, and to an African American family who had lost their daughter to a murder by the illegal alien MS-13 gang.  The party of the United Auto Workers could not bring itself to applaud the re-invigoration of the U.S. automotive industry.
  • Every time West Virginia Senator Joe Manchin, who is desperate to be re-elected in a state that Trump carried by 30 points, stood up to applaud a line, he looked sheepishly around as if he was expecting to be pelted with eggs by his colleagues.  He had good reason for that, since the leering Chuck Schumer, seated only a couple of seats away, could be visibly seen shushing him anytime he decided to clap.
  • Making matters even worse for the party of the Ku Klux Klan, the Democrats made the frightful mistake of picking Joseph Kennedy III to deliver their response to the President’s grand speech.  There he was, this doppelganger of Conan O’Brien, standing in some industrial facility as if anyone named Kennedy would know something about actual work, with a small crowd of sycophants who had no doubt been paid to be there.
  • Kennedy’s speech was, in a word, embarrassing.  Embarrassing for him, embarrassing for his family’s grand tradition of great oratory, and in the end, embarrassing for the Democrat Party.  The young man has the physical presence of a 12 year-old.  He was so obviously nervous he could barely get the words out.  The speech itself sounded like something that had been written by a middle schooler participating on a debate team.  And none of that even mattered because Kennedy had applied some sort of lip balm in a way that made it look as if he was literally drooling out of both sides of his mouth.  It was like a train wreck – impossible to look away.
  • Even worse (is that really possible?), Kennedy’s disaster was followed by the incoherent ramblings of Mad Maxine Waters and the communist rantings of Bernie Sanders.  This is your Democrat Party, folks, laid bare for all the world to see.
  • It was, all in all, a night filled with the worst possible visible imagery for the increasingly seditious Democrat Party, which refused to honor the flag, the national anthem, the pledge of allegiance, returning war heroes, the devastation of ISIS, roaring economic success, and generally putting America first.  The Democrats’ sitting on their hand through those easy applause lines will not play well with independent voters, who like to see their elected representatives at least putting up the pretense of love of country.
  • In direct contrast to Barack Obama’s speeches that were invariably filled with hundreds of uses of the words “I” and “my”, this was a speech filled with hundreds of uses of the words “we” and “our”.  But the Democrats made it very, very clear that their stance is that there is no “we” anymore in America:  There is only them and their overwhelming lust to secure and maintain political power.
  • In the end, one was left with the overriding surety that there is no dealing with today’s Democrat Party.  There will be no great coming together of the national government for the good of the country on immigration, a real federal budget, funding our military, or any of the other pressing matters of the day.
  • The Democrats made it crystal clear last night that they cannot and will not be compromised with.  Thus, the rest of us are left with the single choice that they must instead be defeated, soundly and in every way, and many of their heroes must be put in prison for the myriad crimes they committed during the Obama years.  When any political party overtly rejects love for country and respect for the nation’s laws and institutions, there is no other choice.
Just another day in seditious Democrats America.
That is all.

As #ReleaseTheMemo Finally Prevails, Another Deep State Agent Bites the Dust

  • Tired of all this Winning yet?  Part I – Ratings for the disgusting Grammy Awards program Sunday were down 24%, and scored an all-time record low in the Nielson audience measure.  The Grammy’s fall from grace simply continues a tide among all of the Hollywood awards programs, which have turned into 3-hour-long hate fests over the last few years.  The plunging ratings for the awards programs also reflect the public’s fading appetite for Hollywood’s depraved products in general.  Cool.
  • Tired of all this Winning yet?  Part II – The Chicago Sun-Times announced it has temporarily halted the column of film critic Richard Roeper over allegations that he – gasp! – purchased followers on Twitter.  Man, if the fake news media is going to go down this particular road, it is going to find itself running fresh out of columnists very quickly, because it’s a very safe bet that pretty much all of their big muckety-muck fake writers, fake reporters, fake talking heads and fake anchors have engaged in this practice on Twitter in order to make themselves appear more popular than they actually are.  Couldn’t happen to a nicer bunch of people.
  • Tired of all this Winning yet?  Part III – Speaking of disgusting Hollywood events, a bunch of has-beens, never-weres and one Communist Mayor – ok, who am I kidding, they’re all Communists – staged something they called The People’s State of the Union last night.  “Headliners” included the slob fake-documentarian Michael Moore, B-list actor Mark Ruffalo, and a bunch of people who were sort of famous in the ’90s like Cynthia Nixon, John Leguizamo, Wanda Sykes and Rosie Perez, most of whom I had thought were dead.  Oh, and Communist New York Mayor Bill DeBlasio showed up, too, because there was a free buffet in the Green Room, and the little people paid for his limo ride.  I’d tell you what the show’s ratings were, but it’s doubtful Nielson is bothering to measure them.
  • The House Intelligence Committee met on Monday and voted along party lines to finally, at long last, release its much-ballyhooed memo on the rampant abuse of the FISA process during the Obama Administration.  President Donald Trump (I still never tire of typing those three words) will now have five days during which he can either affirmatively approve the memo’s release, stop its release for a variety of reasons, or do nothing.  If he does nothing, the memo would be read into the congressional record at the end of the 5-day period.
  • Bug-eyed California Democrat Adam Schiff, who has spent the last year leaking classified information and doing everything else in his power to undermine the Committee’s efforts, pretended to cry as the vote was taken.  He then immediately met with reporters and, in a span of just a few minutes managed to do the following:
    • Condemned the Committee Republicans for voting to release the memo, claiming that the FBI had not even had a chance to review it, even though the FBI has had access to the memo since mid-week last week;
    • Next condemned the Committee Republicans for voting NOT to immediately release the Democrats’ own memo, which literally nobody other than its alleged authors has had any chance whatsoever to review; and
    • Somehow failed to mention the fact that the Committee had unanimously voted to submit the Democrats’ alleged memo – if it indeed actually exists – to the exact same process that the majority’s memo has gone through.  (Hey, maybe he was crying because he has to go write a memo now.)
    • All of which proves just one more time that Adam Schiff ranks right up there with San Fran Nan and Mad Maxine Waters among the most utterly dishonest members of congress.  Can it be coincidence that all three are from California?  Probably not.
  • Down goes McCabe!  Down goes McCabe!  Down goes McCabe! – Schiff’s claim that the FBI had not had the opportunity to review the FISA Abuse Memo was rendered all the more laughable given that it came just a couple of hours after Sweaty Andy McCabe, the FBI’s Deputy Director, was “removed” from the premises effective immediately, and many media reports indicated that FBI Director Christopher Wray made this decision just one day after he had conducted his own personal review of that memo.  Cause, meet effect.
  • Whatever role the FISA Abuse Memo played in the ending of McCabe’s career, the fake news media and Democrats who are intent on covering up all the Obama-era wrongdoing should be even more disturbed about the memo circulated internally at the FBI by Director Wray following McCabe’s involuntary “retirement”.  That memo to staff indicated that Wray made his decision based in part on information about McCabe contained in the pending report compiled by DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz.
  • It’s fun to also remember that McCabe’s “removal” by Wray comes barely a week after the fake news media circulated a fake report that Wray had threatened to quit when Attorney General Jeff Sessions suggested he get rid of his sweaty Deputy Director.  That little episode ended with the sudden dismissal of FBI Chief of Staff  Jim Ribycki.  The fake news cycles so rapidly now that that seems like an old story, doesn’t it?
  • If the Horowitz report has indeed already claimed its first scalp even before its release, you can bet there are lots of shaking knees this morning in the offices of the DNC, the NYTimes and CNN.  The deep state cabal agents are literally dropping like flies around the Hoover Building, and that’s just a wonderful thing for America.
Just another day in the Swamp is being drained America.
That is all.
