Social Justice Warriors Ruin Everything They Touch, Even the Olympics

Tired of all this Winning yet?  – President Trump, as only he can do it, got onto his Twitter account Tuesday evening and trolled the fake journalists at CNN and MSNBC who helped promote one of the fake Russian-staged anti-Trump rallies on November 12, 2016:  “Bad ratings @CNN & @MSNBC got scammed when they covered the anti-Trump Russia rally wall-to-wall. They probably knew it was Fake News but, because it was a rally against me, they pushed it hard anyway. Two really dishonest newscasters, but the public is wise!”  Never.  Stop.  Tweeting.  Please.

Um, how come they haven’t already been fired? – The Daily Beast has a report this morning that reads as follows:  “Several Newsweek staffers threatened to resign earlier this week, accusing the company of attempting to muzzle the publishing of a story further detailing internal turmoil at the magazine and ties to a controversial Christian college.”  Note to Newsweek management:  There is a really, really simple business solution to this problem.

All you really need to know about this gal is that she’s a Democrat in California.  Then it all makes perfect sense. – California State Assemblywoman (or is it “Assemblywymyn?”  I have a hard time keeping these things straight, and I do strive here at the Campaign Update to be as politically correct as possible.) Christina Garcia, who has spent the last 6 months demanding that any member of the male species accused of any sort of sexual wrongdoing resign immediately without defending himself in any way, shape or form, is very predictably refusing to resign her own seat in the face of multiple accusations that she her own self happens to be a sexual predator.  Go figure.  Who could have ever seen this one coming?

Hey, y’all, the Democrats have new polling data on the Trump Tax Cuts, and it turns out calling $1,000 bonuses “crumbs” hasn’t worked out so well.  Who could have guessed that?  It seemed like such a great strategy.  Apparently, though, the Dems done some focus groups – probably among people in San Francisco who can now legally poop on the streets because they’re the Democrats’ idea of “middle America” – who are telling them that hey, call the tax bill “unpatriotic” because healthcare or something, and it will all be better.  So San Fran Nan was out in Arizona calling the tax bill “unpatriotic” on Tuesday because all those street poopers told her that was the smart thing to say.  I swear, that’s how the Democrats do this stuff.

Proving once again that it is simply not possible to ever be politically correct enough to satisfy all the social justice warriors in America, the blockbuster film “Black Panther”, which features a mostly-black cast and a black superhero from Marvel Comics and has broken all manner of box office records, is now under fire because it doesn’t contain any gay characters.  Had it contained gay characters, it would have come under fire for not including any Hispanic characters.  Had it included gay and Hispanic characters, it would have come under fire for not including any Asian characters.  Had it included gay, Hispanic and Asian characters, it would have come under fire because the cast was not 52 percent female, reflective of the overall make up of our society.  Had it included gay, Hispanic, Asian characters in a 52 percent female cast, it would have come under fire for not including enough Canadians, because, well, Canada or something.  And on and on and on it goes.  I swear I don’t make this stuff up.

Speaking of social justice warriors, it turns out that a U.S. Olympics team filled with them isn’t maybe the best model for getting to peak performance in the actual Olympics events or in the TV ratings.  NBC’s TV audience for these Olympics games, in fact, are headed to be the lowest ever recorded.  As the games wind down to a blessed conclusion this week, the U.S. team itself has managed to win only 13 total medals, and will finish with its lowest medal count since 1998.  Just a thought, but perhaps U.S. Olympics organizers in the future should ask their athletes to focus more of their energies on excelling in their chosen events and less on shooting their mouths off about political issues to any TV camera that happens to be in the vicinity.  That worked for people like Carl Lewis and Nadia Comenici and Peggy Fleming and Simone Biles, and it might, just might have also worked for Lindsey Vonn.

Just another day in Social Justice Warriors kill everything they touch America.

That is all.

CNN’s PanelTruckGate Caps The Media’s Week Of Laughably Fake Scandals

  • As previously noted here earlier in the week, it has been such a slow news week that the fake news media has resorted to faking up fake scandals about First Lady Melania Trump ordering a tree to be cut down and President Donald Trump having not held a formal state dinner during his first year in the presidency.
  • Those fake controversies were faked up by the Associated Press, Newsweek and The Hill.  Now, desperate to get in on the news-faking act, the creeps at chronically low-rated CNN, obviously embarrassed at having played the Melania Trump tree cutting story straight, have now spent two solid days inventing their own fake controversy.  Yes, friends, your intrepid fake journalists at the fakest fakety-fake news organization in America have spent the last two days engaged in a very serious investigation into who exactly it was that ordered a big white panel truck to be parked adjacent to President Trump’s Mar-a-Lago golf club, thus blocking the fake news media’s view of Mr. Trump’s golf game on Tuesday.  Oh, the humanity!
  • I swear I don’t make this stuff up – it’s really true.  Literally every hour of CNN’s 24-hour days on Wednesday and Thursday contained at least a report – many actually involved panel discussions with “experts” weighing in with straight faces – on this crucial matter of national security, or something.  CNN’s on-the-scene fake reporter, Noah Gray – who one supposes is on the presidential beat this week because Jim Acosta has run out of adult diapers and didn’t get a new supply as a Christmas gift – has actually been running all over the town of West Palm Beach, trying to identify the nefarious truck in question.
  • Seriously, go read this clown’s Twitter feed – it is a literal timeline of what he has spent his time focusing on this week while supposedly covering the presidential beat.  Tweet after tweet contains updates on the status of his PanelTruckGate investigation, including statements from Secret Service and law enforcement officials.
  • At mid-day on Thursday, Gray even tweeted out a photo of a possible “suspect” – a white panel van sitting in the parking lot of the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office.  Gray, excited to possibly be closing in on the “deep throat” in this PanelTruckGate scandal, breathlessly notes that it is a “White box truck of same type & similar look seen parked at PBSO department parking lot. It remained there today.”
  • No doubt enraged that the PBSO actually owns a big white panel truck, Gray called the Sheriff’s Office for a comment on this growing controversy.  Not surprisingly, the PBSO denies sending a big white panel truck out to Mar-a-Lago to mess with the White House press corps:

  • But Gray and his bosses at CNN, desperate to keep a fake controversy alive, would not be put off so easily.  When Gray spotted the same truck parked in the exact same parking spot in the PBSO lot the very next day – it obviously had not been moved overnight – he got the PBSO spokesperson on the phone one more time, and then righteously issued this tweet:  “Spox for PBSO Teri Barbera, reiterated to CNN the truck maneuver was not authorized by management of the detail of the Sheriff’s office.”
  • So there you have it:  PanelTruckGate in a nutshell, brought to you by the fake reporters, fake cameramen, fake editors and fake producers at America’s fakest news outlet, CNN.  As of the time I’m writing this early on Friday morning, that is Gray’s most current tweet on the matter.  It remains to be seen if CNN is desperate enough to carry this farce on into a third straight day.
  • The latest ratings show that, in any given hour of the day, somewhere between 400,000 and 800,000 people in this country are tuned into CNN.  That means that roughly 1 out of every 400 people you run into is an avid CNN watcher.  This is a person who spends each day having his or her mind filled with this sort of abject mush.
  • Next time you run into such a person, ask them to tell you exactly what it is they’re thinking about when they consciously tune their TV to that particular channel.  The answer will either be highly entertaining, or the dumbest thing you’ve heard all week.  There are no other possibilities.

Just another day in CNN Remains the Fake News King America.

The Jackson Magnolia: That Shocking Time When The Media Invented A Fake News Story, And CNN Wasn’t To Blame

  • Heavy marijuana use has been linked to a “mysterious stomach illness” by researchers and doctors in Colorado and California, where pot use has been essentially fully legalized.  Victims report experiencing pain, vomiting and (big surprise) “mental fog” as symptoms.  Hey, docs, it’s not the pot:  It’s the nacho cheese Doritos and Big Gulp cherry Slurpees.
  • There was a time not so long ago when I used to tell all my friends that Matt Damon does not make bad movies.  And it was true:  from Mystic Pizza to Good Will Hunting to Saving Private Ryan to The Bourne Identity and on and on and on, the guy was churning out 2, 3, 4 movies a year that were all worth paying to see.  I mean, even Ocean’s 13 was at least entertaining.
  • But then came 2012, and it all fell apart.  If you look at Damon’s filmography, you will see that that was the only year during his entire career in which he made only a single film.  For some odd reason, the single film Damon chose to do that year was the wretched, stupefyingly tedious anti-fracking screed called Promised Land, a truly horrid bit of abject fiction that was just awful in every way.  The film failed miserably at the box office – grossing about a third of its production costs – and without doubt represents a true turning point in Damon’s career trajectory.
  • Since making the decision to participate in that pathetic hit piece on the Pennsylvania oil and gas industry, ditching all possible entertainment value for the sake of making a left-wing social statement,  Damon has had a hard time making a movie that isn’t laugh-out-loud awful.  This year’s choices were so bad that Damon has not one, but two flicks on film critic Rex Reed’s 10 Worst Films of 2017 list:  Down-Sizing and Suburbicon.  Given Damon’s long and very-much-aware association with the wretched Harvey Weinstein, this career turn could not happen to a nicer guy.
  • Tuesday was a slow news day, and slow news days always mean fewer Internet clicks for the nation’s desperate-to-survive fake news services.  Thus, when the story came out that a large magnolia tree on the White House grounds that was planted during the presidency of Andrew Jackson almost 200 years ago was going to need to be removed because it was in imminent danger of falling over, some fake news services couldn’t resist trying to turn this seemingly non-controversial story into click-bait.
  • The story originated with CNN, the king of all the news-faking services.  Stunningly, the fake journalists and editors at CNN actually played this story straight, reporting correctly that, while the final decision on the tree’s fate fell to First Lady Melania Trump – since the First Lady is always responsible for the maintenance of the White House grounds – she made the decision based on the strong recommendations of the National Park Service.  CNN amazingly reported this story correctly, by-the-numbers, with a tame headline that reads “Exclusive:  Iconic White House Tree To Be Cut Down.”  All of which was – in perhaps a first for the struggling cable network – 100% true.
  • But then the secondary fake media outlets got involved, and, acting as the pack of sewer rats they truly are, decided to turn the story into clickbait with inflammatory headlines blaming the First Lady for the fate of the poor, defenseless tree, and a social media firestorm of mindless hatred from social justice warriors was born.  Newsweek‘s tweet headline reads “Melania Trump Orders Removal of Near-200 Year-old Tree From White House”.  The creeps at The Hill ran with the even more ridiculous “Melania Trump removing White House tree that’s stood since early 1800s”, implying that the evil wife of the evil Trump would be taking an axe to the damn tree, presumably while dressed in her spiked heels and a red dress adorned with swastikas.
  • And just like that, a new social media SJW cause du jour was made up out of whole cloth by a bunch of snot-nosed interns who man the Twitter desks at the various fake news media click bait operations.  None of which is especially surprising, of course, other than the fact that CNN, the fakest fakety fake news outlet of them all, happened to be the one among all of them that actually just reported the facts of the story.
  • All of which proves yet again that the Christmas season truly is a time of miracles.
Just another day in Fake News Media America.
That is all.

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

Today’s Campaign Update 

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

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

Just another day in praying for CalExit America.

That is all.
