Trump’s “DACA” Meeting: Another Mission Accomplished

  • In my new year’s predictions piece (2018 Will Be A Wild and Crazy Year in Trump’s America) I predicted that “The crisis with North Korea will be resolved without a shot being fired.”  In case you hadn’t noticed – because the fake news media is spending as little time covering it as possible – a few  days after that piece was published, the Crazy Little Fat Guy called his counterpart in South Korea to request that the two countries engage in bi-lateral negotiations.  Those talks commenced on Monday, and have already begun to bear fruit.  This never happened while Barack Obama was appeasing the Crazy Little Fat Guy.  Funny how it does happen, now that the appeasement has ended.
  • Speaking of talks between hostile nations, President Donald Trump (I still never tired of typing those three words) hosted a room full of congressional Republican and Democrat leaders at the White House to talk immigration on Tuesday.  Normally, the fake journalists who represent the fake news media outlets are invited to come in for the first 5 minutes of such meetings, so they can take pictures and ask stupid, insulting questions.  That’s how all prior presidents have done it, and it’s the routine to which the fake journalists have become accustomed.
  • But, of course, Donald Trump does not do “routine,” a reality that the fake journalists still have not figured out.  So it came as a yuuuge surprise to the fake reporters – and an even bigger shock to the members of congress who hate having to speak on the record without their script in front of them –  when the President instructed the leering press to just stick around and film the whole thing.  And for the next 50 minutes or so, President Trump turned the meeting into the latest episode of The Apprentice, with Trump holding forth from the center of the table, asking piercing questions, telling everyone why they’re wrong about specific things, and completely dominating the discussion.  The only shame was that he couldn’t point to Sen. Dianne Feinstein and say, “you’re fired.”
  • It all came as such a shock to the fake news media system that even CNN saw its fake hosts praising the President in real time, before they had a chance to get with their Democrat benefactors and develop negative talking points about it.  The vacuous Wolf Blitzer found himself telling CNN’s little toady White House fake reporter Jim Acosta that he had to give Trump “a lot of credit” for allowing press cameras to cover a “really remarkable meeting.”  Blitzer later opened a segment with White House Director of Legislative Affairs Marc Short by saying, “Thank you for allowing that meeting today to be open to our TV cameras.  I think it was very productive, very important.”
  • This will all change this morning, now that the Democrats and fake media have had a chance to get into their own conference room and hammer out a negative narrative for the President’s performance, but the Trump goal was achieved, and it has nothing to do  with immigration.
  • Wait, what?  Yes, that meeting yesterday was not in any way about solving the nation’s immigration problems.  The President is not naive – he is keenly aware that these particular Republicans and these particular Democrats are never, never, ever going to come to any agreement over an approach to the immigration problems facing this country.  Which is why he knew he could sit there and tell them “I’ll sign whatever you bring me” in terms of a comprehensive immigration bill without worrying about ever having to actually do such a thing.
  • This is especially true with Trump’s one provision that any agreement on DACA or a path to citizenship for illegal immigrants already in the country must include the building of a border wall, and the elimination of chain migration.  He made that crystal clear at the beginning of the meeting, and reiterated it again with tweets afterwards.  Those are deal killers for Democrats, whose one and only interest in all of this is maximizing illegal immigration with the goal of ultimately turning them all into Democrat voters.
  • Thus, Donald Trump knew he could sit in that meeting a let them all bicker with one another without ever having to worry about actually seeing a comprehensive immigration bill come to his desk.  Which means that all the hysteria from Ann Coulter and the rest of the anti-immigration right we saw last night and will see again today about the President somehow going back on his campaign promises is meaningless blather from people who also still do not understand how Donald Trump operates.
  • So, then, what was the meeting all about?  Well, it was about demonstrating clearly, without any question at all, that Donald Trump is in complete control of his mental faculties, does not have dementia, and is clearly capable of carrying out the duties of being President of the United States.  It was about conclusively and effectively refuting these treasonous allegations that have been made ad nauseum by Democrats and in the fake news media since the publication of Michael Wolff’s gossip novel.   After all, if the guy who was clearly in complete control of that meeting is mentally deficient, what does that make all the politicians in the room who were clearly subservient to him?
  • That, my friends, is the one and only thing that meeting yesterday was about, at least from Donald Trump’s perspective.
  • Mission accomplished.

Just another day in Donald Trump is in control America.

That is all.

2018 Will Be A Wild And Crazy Year In Donald Trump’s America

Here are The Campaign Update’s First Annual Random Predictions for 2018:

  • The crisis with North Korea will be resolved without a shot being fired – the only question is whether or not the Crazy Little Fat Guy survives the resolution.
  • Jim Acosta will suffer an on-air nervous breakdown – The behavior of CNN’s petulant White House correspondent became increasingly erratic and outrageous as 2017 progressed, and his obvious lobbying for a gig hosting his own show fell on deaf ears among the fake news channel’s management.  Things can only get worse for poor little Jimmy in 2018.
  • Joe and Mika will break up – Seriously, who could stand to be together with either one of them for more than a few years?  They’ll keep hosting their show together, but Mika is just bound to wake up some morning soon to the realization that she broke up two marriages to be with a guy who looks just like her Aunt Margaret.
  • The History Channel’s “Search for the Zodiac Killer” will, in its final episode, identify MSNBC host Lawrence O’Donnell as the famous mass murderer.  No really, I’m betting good money on this one.
  • The guys on Oak Island will finally find something truly significant – But we’ll have to wait through a 4-1/2 minute commercial break to find out what it is.
  • CNN’s ratings will drop below those for HGTV’s new show, “Flip or Flop Ypsilanti” –  Yeah, I know that show doesn’t exist, but given the proliferation of new “Flip or Flop” spinoffs during 2017, it seems inevitable that it will by the end of the first quarter of 2018.
  • The vaunted #MeToo movement will quietly grind to a whimpering halt – This is sad, but it is also inevitable, as America’s leftist establishment comes to realize that it’s mostly their own people getting caught up in it, which is not politically convenient.  Since the left politicizes literally everything, we can expect the climate of sexual abuse in Hollywood, the media and politics to be fully back to business as usual by mid-year.
  • The New England Patriots will win the Super Bowl, yet again – This is mainly because Eagles QB Carson Wentz went down to injury.  Had he remained healthy, the Eagles would have rolled to their first NFL Championship in the modern era.  As it is, the Patriots will easily dispatch the Vikings in Super Bowl whatever-roman-numeral-this-one-happens-to-be.
  • The Houston Astros will win the World Series, again – Hey, after waiting for more than half a century to win their first one, why not win one more over the same Los Angeles Dodgers?
  • White House Chief of Staff John Kelly, who everyone in the fake news media assured us all back in August was miserable in his job and about to resign, will still be happily ensconced in his position a year from now.
  • Ditto Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, who everyone in the fake news media has assured us repeatedly over the last six months was on the verge of resigning.  He actually likes his current job, and isn’t going anywhere.
  • The staff at the EPA will shrink by more than 1,000 during 2018 – if you thought the 700 or so who left during 2017 was a big deal, you should understand that it was only just the beginning.  This Administration is deadly serious about getting this heinously abusive agency under control.
  • The Justice Department’s IG Report will seem to be a disappointment when it is issued – As has been promised, the DOJ IG Report of its year-long investigation into potential wrong-doing among senior staff at DOJ and the FBI will be issued in late January/early February.  It will initially be perceived to be a disappointment to those who want to see justice truly done, but will actually become the catalyst for the eventual issuance of indictments against members of the anti-Trump cabal that has been working to overturn a duly-conducted U.S. election.
  • The Fake News Media will suddenly rediscover the “homeless” – Having failed miserably in its efforts to bring down a presidency with its myopic focus on the mythical “Russia Collusion”, the fake news media will go to the next page in its playbook and focus myopically on blaming President Trump for America’s “homeless” problem, which the fake news media studiously ignored throughout the 8 years of Obama.  It’s like clockwork.
  • Despite current polling data, the GOP will retain its majority in the U.S. House, and increase its majority in the Senate – Once those tax cuts kick in, those polling numbers are going to shift dramatically.  The 2018 mid-terms will not be a good time for the party of undending outrage, higher taxes, pussy hats, violent riots, Chelsea Handler and Nancy Pelosi.
  • President Trump will keep handing the fake news media exploding cigars – and the fake news media will keep lighting them up.  This is the safest prediction of all.

The Campaign Update wishes each and every one of you a very safe and Happy New Year!

George W. Bush Comes Out Of Hiding And Shows Where His Real Loyalties Lie

Today’s Campaign Update 

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

  • God bless General John Kelly for doing what he did yesterday.  It was heart-wrenching watching him get up there and talk about the death of his own son, and an utter disgrace that he had to do it.  It was an act of supreme loyalty for him to go into that room filled with fake journalist snakes and defend his President.  General Kelly has spent his entire adult life in the valiant service of his country, and yesterday’s service should never be forgotten by anyone who loves America.
  • A Bush Finds His Voice – For eight long years, from January 20, 2009 through January 20, 2017, supporters of former President George W. Bush were saddened and frustrated as Mr. Bush sat idly by while his successor in office and his own supporters trashed Bush’s policies, his reputation and his personality on pretty much a daily basis.  For those eight long years, Mr. Bush appeared happy and very much unperturbed as his successor worked overtime to tear down this country’s institutions brick by brick, to foment racial divisions wherever possible, acted in an utterly lawless manner whenever it suited his desires and needs, and, as we are finding out this week, allowed his Secretary of State and Attorney General to literally sell the country’s national security interests to Russia.
  • Mr. Bush seemed to be footloose and fancy free as his successor sat fecklessly by and allowed ISIS  to grow and take over vast swaths of Iraq and Syria, as terrorist attacks in the U.S. and throughout Western Europe multiplied in almost a geometric progression, as North Korea marched steadily towards possessing an intercontinental nuclear capability.
  • During all that time and through all that corruption and destruction of American society, Mr. Bush sat at his Crawford, Texas ranch like a deaf mute, rarely seen in public other than at events at his presidential library on the SMU campus, or other events at which he was paling around with his “Brother from another Mother”, Bill Clinton.  Nothing, no insult, no being blamed by his successor for his own failures, no corruption of government or society by said successor could break Mr. Bush out of his self-imposed silence.
  • It is only this week that Mr. Bush has suddenly found his voice.  As a duly-elected President of his own political party is going about systematically deconstructing the legacy of Mr. Bush’s successor, trying to resolve the crises with Iran and North Korea that both Mr. Bush and his successor punted down the road, dealing with major natural disasters in three states and Puerto Rico, and under a daily withering assault by our fake national news media, Mr. Bush chose this moment to come out of hiding and make a speech criticizing another president.  Unfortunately, and to his undying disgrace, Mr. Bush chose to criticize not his successor and all the damage he perpetrated on our country, but the current President, Donald Trump.
  • In making that speech yesterday, conveniently timed to distract attention from the exploding Russian Uranium/bribery scandal that took place in the first two years of the Obama Administration, the former President removed all doubt about where his real loyalties lie.  Mr. Bush is a Bush after all, and his loyalties are with the establishment, the ruling elite, the globalists who insist we place international interests above the interests of American citizens, and the DC Swamp creatures who continue to work to ensure such outcomes.  He’s just another Bush, like his Dad, like Jeb! and all the other Bushes who are creatures of the ruling elite.  His outlook and philosophy differ from those of the Clintons and the Obamas only by small degrees.
  • By labeling President Trump’s voters as bigots and nativists, Mr. Bush showed an elite’s disdain for the very same voters who got him elected in 2000 and 2004.  By laying off the blame for our current social strife entirely on President Trump, Mr. Bush demonstrated support for the very leftists who are truly responsible for it all. By refusing to condemn the Democrat-invented “resistance”, Mr. Bush showed his preference for the true fascists among us.
  • I’ll never regret supporting George W. Bush in 2000 and 2004, because he was definitely the lesser of two evils in those elections.  But Thursday’s disgracefully timed and delivered speech removed any remaining doubt that he was in fact an evil, and that made it a sad day indeed.

Just another day in betrayed Bush voters America.

That is all.

President Trump’s Rocket Man Kill Shot Is Great Diplomacy

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

  • Pyong Yang ain’t the kind of place to raise your kids… – The fake journalists in the fake news media will never give him credit for it, but President Donald Trump has successfully issued one of his famous linguistic kill shots at the Crazy Little Fat Guy in North Korea.  The President started using “Rocket Man” as is nickname for the NORK dictator last week, and according to UN Ambassador Nikki Haley, by Monday everyone at the UN General Assembly was using the demeaning moniker as well.
  • “It worked,” she said, when asked about it by a clearly verklempt George Stephanopolous on Good Morning America, “I was talking to a president of an African country yesterday, and he actually cited ‘Rocket Man’ back to me… This is a way of getting people to talk about him, but every other international community is now referring to him as ‘Rocket Man.'”
  • The linguistic kill shot is a Donald Trump specialty, one we saw him use time and time again to dispatch opponents during his presidential run.  Who can forget his killing Jeb! Bush and his $200 million war chest in one of the early primary debates by calling him “low energy”?  Carly Fiorina became a “robot,” Ben Carson was “too nice,” Marco Rubio was “sweaty” and “Little Marco,” Ted Cruz was “Lyin’ Ted.”  Every time a major challenger arose, the verbal kill shot having something to do with their physical characteristics or character came, the voters internalized it and the challenger fell to the wayside.
  • In the general election, Hillary Clinton first became “Crooked Hillary,” something most Americans already knew about her but had never heard said by one of her opponents, and then Trump began questioning her “stamina”.  That latter kill shot came just before Ms. Clinton was filmed collapsing while trying to get into her van following a 9/11 ceremony in New York City, and voters understood then what Trump meant.
  • The Kill Shot was crucial in the campaign, and it is also important at the UN.  It is much easier for despots who dominate third world countries to continue to lend support to a nutjob like Kim Jong Un when everyone keeps referring to him in formal diplomatic terms under the pretense that he is a legitimate “leader”.  But it becomes much harder when everyone walking the halls at the UN headquarters is laughingly talking about and ridiculing the Rocket Man.
  • Again, no one on the political left or in the fake news media will ever give him credit for it, but the linguistic kill shot is a big part of the President’s genius, and a big factor why he is where he is today.  We can anticipate much more usage of this tool in next year’s midterm elections, and if the GOP leaders in congress don’t get something big done on Obamacare or taxes, some of those kill shots will be directed at them, and deservedly so.
  • If you watch “The View”, you are living a sad and depressing life, part 7,352 – Naturally, the ‘ladies’ on “The View” had the most idiotic take possible on the “Rocket Man” kill shot, with both Whoopi Goldberg and Joy Behar claiming the President was making a phallic reference in using it.  There are so many mean things I could say about this coming from these particular ladies, but I am going to exercise a little self-restraint for once.
  • Watch out!  George is gonna get angry! – If you want a bunch of good laughs this morning, go take a look at the clips of MSNBC fake host Lawrence O’Donnell going absolutely berserk at his staff during commercial breaks while taping the August 29 episode of his fake talk show.  We’ve always known that O’Donnell was a raving lunatic, and these outtakes prove it beyond all doubt.  Warning:  lots and lots of profanity involved.
  • The Apocalypse is always just around the corner… – The Sun reports that “A mass extinction which wipes out humanity will be underway by the year 2100, scientists have claimed.”  Because, you know, science or something.

Just another day in linguistic kill shot America.

That is all.

Trump Delivers A Speech Ordinary Americans Have Waited 30 Years To Hear

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

  • In response to President Donald Trump’s (I never get tired of typing that) soaring speech at the UN General Assembly on Tuesday, Venezuelan Envoy Jorge Arreaza said “For a moment, we didn’t know if we were listening to President Reagan in 1982 or President Trump in 2017.”  Well, yes, that is exactly why Mr. Trump is President of the United States today.
  • Mr. Arreaza, of course, thought his statement was an insult to the current U.S. President, as did every fake reporter in the fake news media, many of whom were no doubt getting major cases of the vapors as they listened to the President’s speech.  CNN’s Jim Acosta publicly wet his diapers over the decision by President Trump to refer to North Korea’s dictator as “Rocket Man.”  ABC’s Terry Moran said the President’s statement that the U.S. may find it necessary to “destroy” North Korea borders on a war crime, apparently unaware that his hero Barack Obama had made the very same threat towards the Norks while he was occupying the White House.
  • Can it be a coincidence that America’s community of fake journalists, its population of liberal/progressive/socialist/communist voters and politicians, the snakes and skunks who infest the Deep State in Washington, and leaders of despotic regimes around the globe all had exactly the same reaction to a speech in which the President of the United States emphasized he plans to put the interests of the American people above the interests of the globalist community?  Well, no, it’s no coincidence at all, is it?
  • Meanwhile, the normal people of America – the people who inhabit the 95% of the country outside of New York City, Washington, DC, Los Angeles and San Francisco – have been waiting 30 years to hear an American President deliver exactly this speech, a speech before the international globalist community that firmly places their safety, their security, their families, and their prosperity as the President’s number one priority in his job.  These Americans have spent the last three decades literally longing to hear such a speech from George H.W. Bush, Bill Clinton, George W. Bush or Barack Hussein Obama, and have come away uniformly disappointed at every turn.  Normal Americans were especially hopeful for a President who puts their interests first after the unending, eight year-long apology tour by Barack Hussein.
  • So Mr. Arreaza was right, if unwittingly so, to say that at times it was hard to know if we were hearing a speech from Donald Trump or Ronald Reagan, because the last time Americans heard such a speech escape the lips from their national leader, it came from Mr. Reagan.
  • The last time Americans heard such a speech from one of their Presidents, it was June 12, 1987.  Ronald Reagan, speaking to an audience of international leaders from a podium placed in front of the Berlin Wall, said “General Secretary Gorbachev, if you seek peace, if you seek prosperity for the Soviet Union and Eastern Europe, if you seek liberalization: Come here to this gate! Mr. Gorbachev, open this gate! Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this wall!”
  • Two years later, that wall came down, and the Soviet Union collapsed.  These were lines that Mr. Reagan’s squeamish advisors had repeatedly removed from his speech for fear of offending the “international community”, only to have the President himself re-insert the passage to their great frustration.  That’s courage, that’s vision, that is presidential leadership.
  • No doubt we will find out in coming days that several lines spoken by President Trump in Tuesday’s speech were placed there against the will of his own squeamish advisors, some of whom are globalists who live in fear of offending the Maduros and Merkels of the world.  It’s a safe bet that much of the President’s strong rhetoric aimed at the despotic dictators of North Korea, Iran and Venezuela were spoken over and above the disapproval of H.R. McMaster and John Kelly.  It is similarly safe to bet that much of the President’s stern language scolding of the U.N. itself over its wastefulness and ineffectiveness were delivered over the objections of Secretary of State Rex Tillerson.  That’s courage, that’s vision, that is presidential leadership.
  • So Mr. Arreaza had it right:  For 40 minutes on Tuesday, we had an American President delivering a speech to the international community that could easily have been delivered by the Great Ronald Wilson Reagan.  The time and place were different, the accent and cadence of the two speakers are different, but the courage, leadership and rhetoric on display were completely indistinguishable.
  • In the end, this key early passage set the tone for President Trump’s entire speech:  “In America, the people govern, the people rule, and the people are sovereign. I was elected not to take power, but to give power to the American people where it belongs.”
  • Those are two sentences Ronald Reagan would have been happy to deliver as well, and those two sentences explain why this is a speech normal Americans loved, and the globalists detest.  God Bless Donald Trump for having the courage necessary to be mistaken for Ronald Reagan.  It’s been 30 long years since anyone had that to say about an American president.

Just another day in Donald Trump’s America.

That is all.

Kim Backs Down – U.S. Diplomacy Wins For Once

Today’s Campaign Update 

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

  • Well, maybe the Crazy Little Fat Guy in North Korea isn’t quite so crazy after all. –  Shortly after Defense Secretary General James Mattis warned that the firing of North Korean missiles in the direction of any U.S. state or territory  would be an act of war and treated by the U.S. with an overwhelming response, the Crazy Little Fat Guy appears, at least for now, to have backed down.  In a silly-worded statement, the Crazy Little Fat Guy stated that he has decided not to launch the threatened four nuclear-armed missiles at Guam, a U.S. territory, saying he would “wait a little longer.”  Mr. Crazy went on to say that “If the Yankees persist in their extremely dangerous reckless actions on the Korean Peninsula and in its vicinity, testing the self-restraint of the DPRK, the [North] will make an important decision as it already declared.”  Ok, whatevs, dude.
  • Sorry, Chubby, we’re all out of unleaded. – Another big motivating factor influencing this decision was obviously the action earlier in the day by China to cut off most trade with North Korea, including oil exports to the little dictatorship.  Not even the Crazy Little Fat Guy is crazy enough to think he can run his military machine without fuel.  No oil, no war.  This is a really simple equation.
  • CNN’s gonna need some new talking points. – China’s move represents a big win for U.S. diplomacy, led by President Trump, Sec. of State Rex Tillerson, and U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley.  The move by China was its effort to comply with sanctions approved late last week by the U.N. Security Council, a proposal that was driven by the U.S. government.  It took months of focused diplomacy and arm-twisting – and even a few threats – with China and Russia to finally achieve the unanimous vote required to enact such international trade sanctions.  This, of course, does not fit the U.S. media’s narrative that the Trump Administration doesn’t do diplomacy, and so credit must go elsewhere in our fake media environment.
  • Wait, is the FBI becoming a functioning agency again? – In what was treated as a minor news story as the fake news media obsessed over Charlottesville, the FBI announced it had, for once, stopped a planned terrorist attack.  The agency arrested some dude named Jerry Varnell, who was planning to detonate a 1,000 lb. bomb in an effort to blow up the Federal Reserve Building in OKC.  No, really, after the Obama years, during which we would have a terrorist kill a bunch of people followed by news that the terrorist had been under surveillance by the FBI for years without the agency taking any action, the FBI actually arrested a terrorist before he could kill anyone!  Fantastic!
  • Hope springs eternal, maybe. – Of course, Mr. Varnell is a white guy who was threatening to blow up federal government property, while all the terrorists who committed acts in recent years while under FBI surveillance were Muslims who planned to just kill private citizens on private property.  It’s a sad thing, but I can’t help wondering if those factors have something to do with the FBI’s ability – or even willingness – to intervene with known terrorists before they kill people.  Hopefully, this arrest is just a sign that things really are changing within the Justice Department and FBI, both of which had been hopelessly corrupted during the Obama years.
  • Those Fightin’ Texas Aggies won’t be fightin’ this battle. – Speaking of Charlottesville and white nationalist demonstrations, the administration at Texas A&M University cancelled plans to allow what was being called a “White Lives Matter” demonstration on its campus in September, citing safety concerns.  “Alt-Right” icon Richard Spencer was scheduled to come to the campus on September 11 to lead the rally.  This move will of course be decried as suppression of free speech by Texas A&M – which, let’s admit it, it is – but, as long as the University also moves to cancel any planned rallies by violent leftwing George Soros groups like Black Lives Matter and Antifa, I really have no problem with this decision.  Free speech is a wonderful thing, and any person should be free to say and believe whatever repugnant things they want to believe and say.  But that doesn’t necessarily give anyone an unfettered right to stage any kind of rally they want to stage, and force universities to spend thousands of dollars on security to prevent violence from breaking out.  It just doesn’t.
  • And then he shouted “Hullabaloo, Caneck, Caneck!”*** – Incidentally, the best part of this whole episode was the statement from A&M Student Body President Bobby Brooks, who supported the University’s decision in classic Aggie fashion:  “Students have come from a multitude of backgrounds and sacrificed many things to attend Texas A&M, and they have the right to go to classes without fearing for their safety.  White supremacy and the violence that has accompanied it are most certainly ‘Bad Bull.'” **  Hilarious.

Just another day in ‘Bad Bull’ America.

That is all.

 

**  From Wikipedia: ‘Bad Bull’ means anything not in keeping with Aggie traditions or the Aggie spirit.

***From Wikipedia:  Beginning phrase of the Aggie War Hymn.  The lyrics are an onomatopoeic representation of the sound a cannon being loaded, or also the sound of a train rolling through town since there is a train track that splits the campus.

North Korea Rattles Sabres, Liberal Heads Explode. S.O.P.

Today’s Campaign Update 

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

  • It’s what they do; it’s who they are. – Well, U.S. intelligence agencies have determined that the Crazy Little Fat Guy (CLFG) over in North Korea now has the ability to deliver a nuclear warhead on his ICBMs, and liberal heads exploded all over America’s fake news media and the social media space.  No, they didn’t explode at the news that CLFG has deliverable nukes – that would be far too sensible.  Nor did their progressive heads explode with anger at former President Bill Clinton for his horrible 1994 deal with Pyong Yang that set the wheels in motion for this to happen, nor at George W. Bush and Barack Obama for fecklessly allowing the situation to fester for the last 16 years, joining Clinton in happily passing the buck off to the next guy.
  • No, liberal heads exploded because President Donald Trump said the following in response:  “North Korea best not make any more threats to the United States. They will be met with fire and fury like the world has never seen… he has been very threatening beyond a normal state. They will be met with fire, fury and frankly power the likes of which this world has never seen before.”  But let’s be honest:  President Trump could have sung the lyrics to “Hey, Jude” or recited the Gettysburg Address and gotten the same response.  If he opens his mouth, liberal heads are going to explode.
  • My first question about this whole episode is why should we trust the word of our intelligence agencies in their assertion that CLFG is now a threat to the U.S. mainland?  These intel agencies have consistently demonstrated beyond any doubt that they are not trustworthy, and frankly, that they are not patriots.  Their constant stream of leaks and false narratives over the last 7 months has severely hampered the ability of this President to govern the country, intentionally so.  These agencies are not staffed with patriots, they are by and large staffed with skunks and snakes, the worst sort of DC swamp creatures who leak classified information and put others’ lives at risk for their own self-aggrandizement.  There is no reason whatsoever to worry that Denver is in danger of being vaporized by North Korea based on the words of this collection of seditionists.
  • Indeed, the expressed threat yesterday from Pyong Yang was aimed at…wait for it…GUAM, which happens to be the nearest U.S. territory to North Korean shores.  Not Los Angeles, not Seattle, not Anchorage, not even Honolulu.  Guam.  Given his pretty consistent past behavior, it seems logical to believe that, if CLFG really had the ability to threaten a major U.S. city with his nukes, he’d be directing his threats there.  I mean, c’mon, threatening the tiny island of Guam is like kicking a kitten.  CLFG won’t get any street cred for that.
  • Bottom line here:  If you’re losing sleep in your bedroom in Texas over this intel-agency alleged threat, you’re most likely making yourself drowsy over nothing.
  • Interestingly, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov was the cool head in the room on Tuesday, advising everyone to remain calm.  Go figure.  Lavrov correctly pointed out that this kind of sabre rattling is how Pyong Yang has always responded to escalating sanctions from the UN (which were agreed upon over the weekend):  “Strictly speaking, this is how representatives of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea have reacted to all previous U.N. Security Council resolutions,” he said, “We will judge by their actions.”
  • Of course, were Trump to agree with Lavrov, Rod Rosenstein would immediately appoint another Special Counsel to investigate, and Wolf Blitzer’s beard would sprinkle to the floor at CNN headquarters.

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

Today’s Campaign Update 

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

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

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

That is all.

All The News That’s Fit To Fake

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Indications abound that the Russia collusion fantasy play is dead as a doorknob.  Here are some examples:

  • Writing in the Washington Post, fake columnist David Ignatius, a regular guest on “Morning Joe”, posted a column titled “Working With Russia Might Be The Best Path To Peace In Syria”.  I kid you not, somehow a piece with that theme made it past the WaPo’s fake editors, despite the fact that the WaPo has for the last two years been brutally pounding Donald Trump for even thinking such a thing, and the fact that the fake newspaper has willingly participated in supporting a Democrat/fake media-invented fantasy that alleges that Trump is in Vladimir Putin’s pocket.
  • Next up is this story in Politico, in which several leading Democrats are quoted moving the goal posts on how the fantasy play’s final scene may eventually play out.  Here, instead of alleging that Trump or people associated with this campaign may have somehow coordinated efforts with Russia to “hack” the U.S. election system, the Democrats have now begun to speculate that some nebulous, unidentified “Americans” or “American insiders” – whatever the hell that means – might have been the culprits who held the Russians to….ummmm…to do….welllll….to hack into….ummmm….ok they have no idea what any of this even means.
  • Then there is this unintentionally hilarious defense from The Hill of the fake news media’s having to retract a raft of fake stories and fire a bunch of people in recent weeks:  “Together, the corrections and retractions amount to only a few stories out of the thousands published every day. But the high-profile nature of the errors hurts the media’s credibility at a time when the press is under more scrutiny than ever before, giving new political ammunition to critics of the mainstream press.”  In other words, the fake journalists at The Hill aren’t at all concerned about the fakeness of the stories on the various Democrat fantasy plays, they’re worried that the retractions and firings are helping the public catch onto the truth.  Typical.
  • And the fakery is not limited to the Russia Collusion fantasy.  The Associated Press had to retract a fake story late last week in which it alleged that EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt is unjustly tilting environmental policy in favor of chemical companies.  The key foundation for the story was a meeting the AP said Mr. Pruitt had with Dow Chemical CEO Andrew Liveris.  The problem is, an investigation by Breitbart revealed that no such meeting ever took place.  The AP initially refused to retract or even correct its fake story after Breitbart had notified its fake editors that their mendacity had been discovered, and only relented after the story went viral on Twitter and other social media.
  • And hey, occasionally one of these fake news outlets even files a fake story without even knowing it’s fake.  Take the NYTimes, for instance, which filed a story on Tuesday about the Crazy Little Fat Guy who runs North Korea.  In the story, the NYTimes’ fake writers quote a Twitter account named @DPRK_News, which it identifies as a North Korean state-run media outlet.  Only problem is, that Twitter account is a well-known fake.  Upon learning of this, the fake editors at the fake newspaper issued a meek “correction” to their fake story.

Seriously, you would think that at some point, these fake editors and reporters would get tired of having to issue all these retractions and corrections, and maybe start focusing on real news.  But then, that would make them real editors and reporters, and none of them remember what that even feels like anymore, assuming they ever did.

Just another day in fake news media America.

That is all.
