Steve Bannon Is Now At War With Everyone – Except Roy Moore

  • Hollywood fraud Meryl Streep still can’t bring herself to talk about what she knew and when she knew it when it comes to her “god,” Harvey Weinstein, but she damn sure can go back 39 years take a shot at Dustin Hoffman for a slap in a scene from Kramer vs. Kramer, which she says now was “overstepping.”  So, take that, all you 80 year-old actors who no longer have enough influence to help Meryl Streep command $20 million fees for making movies!
  • Speaking of Hollywood, the Golden Globes Awards kicks off that debased community’s months-long awards season this weekend, and the big thing to know about it is that all the actresses will be wearing black to “honor” the victims of sexual harassment.  It will be interesting to see how many of the black dresses sport navel-revealing necklines, another grand Hollywood tradition.
  • Meanwhile, in a show of solidarity, all the men will also be wearing black tuxedos.  Which, given that’s what the men have always worn to these events, doesn’t really show much solidarity at all, does it?  Seems more like a protest action to me.
  • The University of Michigan has a new curriculum on the subject of “How to Deal With Being White.”  Since I was 14, I’ve dealt with it by getting up early in the morning and going to work, treating everyone I deal with with courtesy and respect, and not becoming a burden to society.  But I’m sure there are other ways.
  • Wednesday, January 3 was the deadline day for the FBI and Justice Department to honor a request by the House Intelligence Committee to turn over documents related to the Democrat/Media created Trump/Russia collusion fantasy play, a request that both DOJ and the FBI have been stonewalling since last August.  Rather than meet their legal obligations in the matter, FBI Director Christopher Wray and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein went up to Capitol Hill to have a meeting with Speaker of the House Paul Ryan.  One would hope Ryan told the two men to get the hell out of his office and go obey the law they’re charged with enforcing, but somehow one lacks much confidence that that’s what actually took place.  In any event, the deadline has passed with no production from the FBI or DOJ, so the ball is back in congress’s court.  With “law enforcement” officials like this, who needs criminals?
  • Fire broke out at the Chappaqua, NY home of Bill and Hillary Clinton on Wednesday, and speculation immediately ran rampant on Twitter that the two lifelong crooks were just burning more records of wrongdoing.  Personally, I figured Hillary had just resorted to dealing with Bill’s latest bimbo eruption by using a Molotov Cocktail.
  • Well, if you wondered why Steve Bannon lasted less than 8 months as the “Chief Strategy Advisor” – whatever that means – in the Trump White House, yesterday’s events should have resolved all confusion.  The guy is nothing more than a tireless self-promoter, and was basically using that position to build his own brand.
  • It is not an accident, for example, that what had been a constant Niagara Falls of leaks coming from the White House slowed to a trickle the day after Bannon was fired.  It is not an accident that, since that firing, the daily messaging confusion that existed at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue has been brought under control.
  • Here’s all you really need to know about Bannon offering all those inflammatory remarks to that random book author:  Bannon was subject to a non-disclosure agreement that he signed when he went to work on the Trump Campaign in August of 2016.  So, putting his name to a binding contract obviously means nothing to the guy, if violating it might elevate his personal public profile.
  • Ironically, Bannon told the audience for Breitbart Radio early Thursday morning that  “nothing will ever come between us and President Trump and his agenda” adding that “we’re tight on this agenda as we’ve ever been.”  You could’ve fooled the President, who said on Wednesday that “Steve Bannon has nothing to do with me or my Presidency…Steve pretends to be at war with the media, which he calls the opposition party, yet he spent his time at the White House leaking false information to the media to make himself seem far more important than he was.”
  • Call me silly, but somehow, it seems unlikely that the President is going to be having Mr. Bannon over for afternoon Diet Coke and Big Macs anytime soon.
  • So now, Steve Bannon is at war with the Democrats; he’s at war with establishment Republicans; he’s at war with the rest of the fake news media; and after yesterday, he’s at war with the White House and the President.  What does it say about a guy when it appears that the only person left in America who he is not at war with is failed Alabama senate candidate Roy Moore?

Just another day in Steve Bannon’s at war with almost everyone America.

That is all.

The Road Goes On Forever And The Fake News Never Ends

  • The road goes on forever, and the fake news never ends (with apologies to the great Robert Earl Keen) – After 10,000 texts between FBI Agent Peter Strzok  and his lover, Justice Dept. lawyer Lisa Page, were made public, the three national broadcast networks very predictably disgraced themselves with their fake coverage of the matter.  But then, it would have been actual news had they behaved otherwise, and these networks are not in the business of making or covering real news anymore.
  • None of the networks mentioned the two federal employees were engaged in an extra-marital affair, and none mentioned the most disturbing message of all, the one Strzok sent to Page reading, “I want to believe the path you threw out for consideration in Andy’s office – that there’s no way he [Trump]  gets elected – but I’m afraid we can’t take that risk. It’s like an insurance policy in the unlikely event you die before you’re 40…”
  • Wait, what?  The “Andy” to whom they’re referring is obviously FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, but what is this “insurance policy” the two apparently discussed with McCabe, a policy that would presumably undermine Trump should he ultimately win the election?  No one at any of the three networks had the curiosity to ask, much less report on that key question.
  • Nor did any of the networks cover the later exchange that begins with Page texting, “maybe you’re meant to stay where you are because you’re meant to protect the country from that menace,” to which Strzok – who apparently thinks he is the FBI’s version of Batman – replies, “I can protect our country at many levels”, presumably referring to whatever secret “insurance policy” had been hatched in the office of Andrew McCabe.
  • All of which probably adds up to the real reason why McCabe suddenly decided to cancel his long-scheduled Tuesday appearance before the House Judiciary Committee at the last minute – he may need time to coordinate with the DNC and the fake media on a set of talking points about this “insurance policy”.
  • But the 20 million or so Americans who for some inexplicable reason still get their “news” from ABC, NBC and CBS all went to bed blissfully unaware of any of this, which, of course, was the networks’ collective goal.
  • Elsewhere, fake host Anderson Cooper and the PR hacks at CNN had to scramble to come up with an explanation for a highly-inflammatory tweet that was sent out from Cooper’s Twitter feed early Wednesday morning.  After President Donald Trump tweeted that “The reason I originally endorsed Luther Strange (and his numbers went up mightily), is that I said Roy Moore will not be able to win the General Election. I was right!”, the Cooper account quickly came back with  “Oh Really? You endorsed him you tool! Pathetic loser.”
  • Cooper then went into panic mode, first tweeting that he  “just woke up to find out someone gained access to my twitter account. i have not sent a tweet in days or replied to any tweets. We are looking into how this happened.”
  • CNN officials, already seeing what little credibility they had remaining – which, let’s face it, wasn’t much – swirling down the Anderson Cooper toilet, later issued an absurd explanation that said that “His assistant inadvertently left his phone unlocked and unattended at the gym early this morning, and someone took his phone and sent the tweet.”  Which of course is ridiculously and hilariously false.
  • Either Cooper sent the tweet or his assistant sent it in a fit of pique.  That’s the only rational scenario that would explain this.  But rather than just admit that, apologize for the incident, and move on, CNN wants you to believe that some random guy at the assistant’s “gym” picked up the phone, somehow realized he could shoot a tweet from Cooper’s Twitter account, paged through the news to figure out what he wanted to tweet about, and then sent that inflammatory tweet, all while the assistant was working out or whatever he was doing at his “gym.”
  • The main thing this proves is that whomever it was at CNN that came up with this cock and bull story has no future whatsoever writing scripts for James Bond movies.

Just another day in the fake news never ends America.

That is all.

That Time Poor Little Jimmy Was Bullied By Mean Ol’ Sarah

  • Alabama GOP Senate Candidate Roy Moore got his head handed to him Tuesday, losing the vote to Democrat Doug Jones by more than 21,000 votes in the final count.  Despite that margin, Moore, as of this writing early Wednesday morning, is still refusing to concede victory, telling his supporters they need to let God sort this all out.  Um, Judge, to the extent God cared about what happened in your election, he’s probably already done all the sorting he’s planning to do.  Show just a little grace here, like your Bible teaches you to do.
  • The editorial board for USA Today has obviously decided it wants its fading platform to join the grand pantheon of fake news organizations.  After President Donald Trump (I never tire of typing those three words) responded to Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand’s call for his resignation with a tweet that says that the Democrat Senator “would come to my office “begging” for campaign contributions not so long ago (and would do anything for them),” the USA ed board responded with an insane op/ed that accused the President of calling the Senator “a whore.”  No, guys, he called her a politician.  Try to keep up here.
  • The President has quite often made that exact same reference to Democrat politicians – mainly New Yorkers like Chuck Schumer – who, when Trump was a private citizen, used to come to his office and beg for money in return for whatever favors Trump wanted them to do for him.  There is really no mystery at all what the President was saying in that tweet, and, as stellar White House Spokesman Sarah Huckabee Sanders told fake reporter April Ryan at Tuesday’s press briefing, only those with their mind in the gutter would take the tweet to be a sexual reference.  Of course, as we have discovered in the past two months with all the revelations about liberals in politics, entertainment and the fake news media being engaged in rampant sexual abuse at the workplace, having their minds in the gutter is apparently where Democrat politicians and fake reporters live 24 hours a day.
  • Never to be outdone, Senator Fauxcahontas Warren weighed in by issuing a statement accusing the President of “slut-shaming” Senator Gillibrand with his tweet.  This led to the fake Indian from Massachusetts being utterly ridiculed in the social media space by Millennials who understand that being “slut-shamed” means the person who is the target has been engaging in slutty behavior, an accusation to which Sen. Gillibrand just might take offense.  Obviously, Senator Heap Big Running Mouth needs to brush up on her urban slang dictionary before wading into controversies such as this in the future.
  • Speaking of Sarah Huckabee Sanders and fake reporters, the fakest White House Reporter of them all, CNN’s Little Jimmy Acosta, hilariously accused Ms. Sanders of being a mean ol’ bully to him on Tuesday.  When the President came out to make a statement to a limited number of White House reporters at what is called a “pool spray” (wonder if April Ryan thinks that’s some sort of sexual reference, too), Little Jimmy claims Sanders came to him beforehand and warned him that his access to future such “sprays” would be limited if, as is his grandstanding habit, he shouted out a question to the President.  Little Jimmy, who has been desperately trying to get a hosting gig on CNN by making a constant ass of himself at the White House, predictably shouted out his question, then bravely tweeted out “Sorry, Sarah – we will not be intimidated.”
  • Now, none of this would be remotely noteworthy were it not for the reality that reporters are very often told that “sprays” such as this are not open to questions, and that, for the past 8 years, whenever the assembled White House press corps was given that instruction by the Obama spokesman, they wagged their tails and panted like the good little lapdogs they were, and then went out and regurgitated whatever Obama had had to say without further comment.  Little Jimmy was maybe the most obedient lapdog among them, though he had plenty of competition.
  • Let’s also remember that, whenever His Royal Oneness Obama did lower himself to take a few questions from Little Jimmy and his gang, the questions asked by these intrepid fake journalists were things like “How ya doin’ today?”, or “What is the very, very best thing about the job you do?”, or “Why are you just so darn wonderful?”
  • After eight years of that on-the-job failure, for Little Jimmy now to lose all sense of proper decorum at the White House or of his place in the world because the people elected a President he personally hates, and whine about being “bullied” is almost too pathetic for words.  But there, I found them.

Just another day in poor Little Jimmy’s being bullied by mean ol’ Sarah America.

That is all.

Doug Jones’s “Wendy Davis” Campaign Strategy Seems To Have Failed. Who Could’ve Seen That Coming?

  • It snowed so hard at one point during the NFL game in Buffalo between the Bills and the Colts that fans were unable to see the game from midway up in the stands.  Climate “scientists” all over the world who are desperate to secure another government grant blamed it all on “global warming.”
  • Meanwhile in Dallas, after averaging less than 200 yards passing through the first 12 games of the season, Cowboys’ QB Dak Prescott exploited the terrible NY Giants defense for 332 yards in the Cowboys’ 30-10 win.  Climate “scientists” will probably find a way to blame that on “global warming” too.  I mean, it’s responsible for everything else, so…
  • In Jacksonville, Seahawks defensive lineman Quinton Jefferson became so enraged when a fan threw a beer at him that he attempted to climb up into the stands to get at the clown before he was restrained by a Seahawks coach.
  • In Houston, Texans’ QB Tom Savage was seen literally twitching uncontrollably after taking a vicious hit to the head in the first half of the Texans’ game with the San Francisco 49ers.  Despite the NFL’s much-ballyhooed “concussion protocol,” Texans’ head coach Bill O’Brien saw fit to just shove him right back into the game just a few plays later.
  • In stadiums all over the NFL, empty seats were the mode of the day.  This was more typical of stadiums that play host to losing teams, like those in Cleveland, Buffalo, Tampa and Houston, but was also true in Charlotte, where the Panthers beat the Vikings to run their record to 9-4.  At the same time, seat prices for games all over the league continued their season-long collapse, with some seats in Buffalo going on line for $3 (that is not a misprint).
  • No word if NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell, who has overseen the slow-motion collapse of what once was America’s sport and whose contract the league’s sub-moron collection of owners just renewed for another five years, would try to blame the declining ticket prices and attendance on “global warming,” but he might as well give it a try.  His owners’ group has been lapping up his BS for a decade now, and would probably just lap that up, too.
  • In its final average of polls in the Alabama senate special election, RealClearPolitics shows Republican Roy Moore with a 3.8% lead over Democrat Doug Jones.  Moore’s lead in the polls taken during the last two weeks is 5.3%.  All of which means that Moore will most likely win the actual election by 7-8% at the end of the day.
  • Once Moore has won the election and been seated in the Senate, the GOP will have to figure out what to do with him.  Blaming it all on “global warming” probably is not an option in this case.
  • On Sunday, the fake reporters covering Moore’s campaign took to wondering where he’s been the last few days, when he hasn’t made a single public campaign appearance.  Meanwhile, Jones decided it would be smart for him to bring down a former governor of Massachusetts and a sitting senator from New Jersey to help him win a statewide race in Alabama.  This does not strike me as a winning strategy for some reason.  Go figure.
  • But Jones has been pretty much tone deaf throughout this race, running essentially the same campaign strategy that Democrat Wendy Davis ran in the 2014 Texas gubernatorial race against Republican Greg Abbott.  Davis, if you remember, ran a campaign based on abortion-on-demand, open borders and government control of everything, and brought in a bunch of leftwing Obama minions to “help”.  That strategy, such as it was, resulted in Davis getting 38.9% of the vote vs. Abbott’s 59.3%.  Granted, Democrats haven’t won a single statewide election in Texas since 1994, but that was an epic blowout even by Lone Star State standards.
  • In deploying essentially the same strategy as Davis, Jones will come closer in his race against Moore, but that doesn’t mean he ran a smarter race than Davis did.  It just means he a lot more help from the fake news media, and from his opponent.
  • Finally, think about this:  If you’re a “leader” in the national Democrat Party, and you see that you can’t even win a senate race in which the Republican has been the target of the single most focused fake news media hit job in modern U.S. history, how are you feeling about your chances of winning control of either house of congress in the 2018 mid-terms?  Two words:  Not very good.  Ok, that’s three, but still…

Just another day in it’s not looking good for the Democrats America.

That is all.

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

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

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

That is all.

Keith Olbermann Loses Another Gig, All Is Right With The World

  • Sen. Al Franken kicked off an apology tour on Monday with a press conference in which he said he will “learn from” his “mistakes”, mistakes that he claims to not remember making.  Not sure how that will really work, but hey, he’s a member of congress, so those were just talking points written by someone else, so…
  • He’s had a sudden change of heart.  Very, very sudden. – Don’t look now, but there’s a new write-in candidate in the Alabama senate race, a guy named Lee Busby.  Mr. Busby, a retired Marine Colonel for whose service we should all be thankful, claims to be an “establishment conservative”.  He’s so “conservative”, in fact, that he was recently spotted at a fundraiser for…wait for it…oh, you gotta wait for this one…extreme liberal Democrat candidate DOUG JONES!  I swear I don’t make this stuff up.  Who could?
  • “Pocahontas” is her first name.  Her middle name is “Hypocrite”. – After President Donald Trump (I still never tire of typing those words) referred to her as “Pocahontas” at a White House event honoring WWII-era Navajo Code Talkers, Sen. Elizabeth Warren accused the President of uttering a “racial slur.”  At this point it is instructive to note that Sen. Warren spent most of her adult life falsely pretending to be a Native American in order to secure high-paying teaching jobs at Ivy League institutions.
  • All that tut-tutting and harrrrummmphing you heard yesterday was emanating from the halls of CNN and the NYTimes. – The President had a very busy day trolling leftwingers on Monday, issuing the following Tweet before the Code Talker event:  “We should have a contest as to which of the Networks, plus CNN and not including Fox, is the most dishonest, corrupt and/or distorted in its political coverage of your favorite President (me). They are all bad. Winner to receive the FAKE NEWS TROPHY!”  Never.  Stop.  Tweeting.  PLEASE.
  • Where have we heard this record before? – Lunatic left-wing commentator, or something, Keith Olbermann, used the whole dustup between the President and Sen. Running-Off-At-The-Mouth as his smokescreen for “ending all political commentary in all venues.”  In other words, Olbermann, who has been fired so many times by so many media outlets it’s hard to count, was most likely fired by his only current outlet, the dying GQ Magazine, where he has been delivering amateurishly-recorded anti-Trump tirades from a set that looks like it was built by my pre-school aged grand-daughter for the last year or so.
  • In a farewell Tweet (we must assume he’s also giving up his Twitter account, since that technically counts as an “outlet” for his unhinged “commentaries”), the former bad sports newsreader for the also-dying ESPN had this to say:   “After “Pocahontas,” Trump’s an ex-president waiting to happen – imminently. So this will be the last episode of . If you’re a political account and I unfollow you it ain’t personal. And I recommend everybody follow @ddale8“.  Don’t ask me who @ddale8 is, because I have no idea and do.  not.  care.
  • In his ostensibly ‘final’ video, the nutjob told his half-dozen loyal fans that, “I’m especially proud to have done these [187] videos for free and for charity but, frankly, I have not enjoyed one minute of it…it has been unadulterated pain and revulsion and horror.”  Think about that:  This guy is such a clown he just got removed from an unpaid job by a publication that is literally dying to attract attention, any kind of attention at all.
  • As for the “unadulterated pain and revulsion and horror,” that is obviously how most Americans react to pretty much anything Mr. Olbermann has ever had to say in those 187 unpaid “commentaries.”  Which is why, as of today, the guy who couldn’t keep a job at Fox Sports, couldn’t keep a job at ESPN, couldn’t keep a job at MSNBC, couldn’t keep a job at something called Current News and couldn’t keep a job at ESPN2, now can’t even keep an unpaid gig with a dying publication that is obviously willing to host literally anything that is anti-Trump on its website.
  • Hey Keith, don’t let the door hit you in the ass on the way out. – Signed, America.

Just another day in Keith Olbermann is unemployed yet again America.

That is all.

The Congressional Protection Racket Forms Up Around Franken and Conyers

Today’s Campaign Update

  • Senator Al Franken said on Sunday that he is “embarrassed and ashamed” over his apparent obsession with grabbing womens’ butts over the years, but not so embarrassed or ashamed that he plans to give up his job in the U.S. Senate, where he will report for booty, er, duty today.  Let’s hope he and Roy Moore get to serve on the same committees should Moore begin a senate term in January – the hearings will make for tremendous political theater.
  • She meant “zero tolerance for thee, not for me.” – Meanwhile, if you’re wondering why Alabama’s Republican voters might still elect Judge Moore to the senate in spite of the allegations arrayed against him, look no further than Sunday morning’s interview by San Fran Nan Pelosi on NBC’s Meet the Press.  Pelosi has spent the last few weeks shrieking that Moore should leave the race because his accusers must – MUST, I say – be believed,  and that congress should have “zero tolerance” for sex abusers.  But, when asked if that “zero tolerance” should apply to Democrat Cong. John Conyers, who has also been accused by several women of disgusting episodes of sexual harassment, she told NBC’s fake host Chuck Todd that Conyers deserves “due process. Just because someone is accused…was it one accusation, is it two?…John Conyers is an icon in our country. He has done a great deal to protect women.”  *sigh*
  • When Republican and independent voters in Alabama see such a rank double-standard being practiced not only by the fake news media, but also by the literal national face of the Democrat Party, it naturally reduces their willingness to believe the allegations facing Judge Moore.  After all, if, as Pelosi clearly implies, the accusers actually aren’t to just be believed out of hand, then why should they buy into the allegations against Moore, when the only actual evidence presented thus far – the supposed signature in one accuser’s high school yearbook – has pretty much conclusively been demonstrated to be a forgery?
  • So, Franken and Conyers get protected by both their fellow Democrats and by Republicans Mitch McConnell and Paul Ryan, who have begun “investigations” into their behavior by the Office of Congressional Ethics (OCE).  This is akin to siccing Inspector Clouseau onto the paths of serial killers.  Placing these matters in the hands of the OCE simply means that nothing will happen for many months, as the “investigation” proceeds at a snail’s pace, in the hopes that it will all fade from the public’s collective memory in the meantime.  Then, once the “investigation” is completed, the results will be quietly released at about 6:30 ET on a Friday evening – preferably at the start of a holiday weekend – so as to incur the minimum possible media attention.
  • It’s a bi-partisan protection racket. – But of course, we all must keep in mind that it isn’t just Democrat members of congress who have much to lose here – it’s Republicans, too.  Conyers’ lawyer threatened over the weekend that, if his client goes down, he will take lots of other members of congress down with him.  That probably won’t be too hard for Conyers to achieve, given that a congressional slush fund has payed out roughly $18 million over the last 20 years in settlements of sexual harassment cases.  Oh, the humanity!
  • Their rush to protect Franken and Conyers by calling for OCE “investigations” doesn’t necessarily mean McConnell and Ryan have anything to hide themselves, but they do no doubt have many members of their respective houses of congress to protect, and they’re wasting no time doing it.  After all, whether Republican or Democrat, members of congress, like Ryan, McConnell and Pelosi, are members of America’s protected, ruling class.  They have all become quite accustomed to exempting themselves from the laws and mandated behaviors that apply to the rest of us, and they’ll be damned if they’re going to go down without a fight.
  • No one ever said that draining the DC Swamp was going to be easy.

Just another day in congressional protection racket America.

That is all.

Liberals Politicize Everything, Especially Sexual Harassment

Today’s Campaign Update

  • The people of Atlanta did the smart thing today with their decrepit, run-down old domed football stadium:  They imploded it.  Hopefully, this will serve as an object lesson to the people of Houston, who keep spending millions of dollars on goofy schemes to turn the Astrodome into a parking lot or a hotel or a park.  Stop the madness, people!
  • Hey, y’all, Oakland Raiders running back Marshawn Lynch actually stood for the national anthem on Sunday!  Wait, what’s that?  The game was played in Mexico City and it was the Mexican national anthem?  He stood for that after sitting on the bench while the Star Spangled Banner was played?  Is Marshawn Lynch a Mexican citizen?  No?  Well, did Mexico do something to help him become the fabulously wealthy ignoramus he is today?  No?  I’m so confused.  Let’s move on.
  • Ok, but there is good news today:  Charles Manson finally died.  So that’s something.  The only shame of it is that he got to live to the ripe old age of 83 before it happened.  Better late than never.
  • He isn’t resigning his senate seat over his sexual harassment scandal, but I’m sure you ladies will all be thrilled to know that Al Franken is promising to do “a lot of reflecting” – according to his spokesman – over the holidays.  Because, you know, if he can just lay low and “reflect” for the next week or so, he’s hoping this will all have blown over.  And given that he’s a Democrat, and his buddies at all our fake news media outlets are going to coordinate efforts and talking points with him, he might succeed.
  • Why are any random gatherings of Democrats inevitably such cesspits of sexual harassment? – A woman in New York is charging that Governor Andrew Cuomo looked the other way as one of his employees sexually intimidated and harassed her for years:
  • “In a shocking Manhattan federal court lawsuit filed Saturday, Lisa Marie Cater alleges former Empire State Development Corp. regional president William “Sam” Hoyt got her a job at the DMV and then leveraged it to “manipulate, sexually harass and sexually assault” her.The bombshell complaint — which names Cuomo and Hoyt as defendants — says Cater contacted Cuomo’s office no less than six times but met “deliberate indifference.”
  • In all seriousness, we now have so many sexual harassment charges popping up against Democrat officeholders and Democrat supporters in Hollywood on a daily basis that it has become impossible to keep up with.  Yes, the fake news media is myopically focused on the allegations against Republican senate candidate Roy Moore, but he is without question the exception to the emerging rule that sexual harassment of women, much like voter fraud, is almost solely the province of liberal Democrats.
  • What is it in the liberal male mind that makes them think it’s OK to abuse women?  Do they think that, because they put up the public pretense of supporting “women’s issues” like abortion on demand that that somehow gives them a get out of jail free card when they try to force themselves on the nearest person wearing a skirt?
  • Well, maybe they do.  What is it about the liberal women who enable this kind of behavior in liberal men?  Hillary Clinton has spent decades handling her husband’s myriad “bimbo eruptions”, brutally attacking any woman who charged him with abuse.  When the Monica Lewinsky scandal erupted, Gloria Steinem famously penned a NY Times op/ed piece in support of the abuser, not of the women who wanted to be believed.  Why?  Because, as Steinem admitted directly in her piece, Clinton was “right” on the issues.
  • That was 20 years ago, but this enabling behavior continues in liberal women today.  Over this past weekend, we had the spectacle of the liberal nitwit celebrity Lena Dunham, who has spent the last decade shrieking (she always seems to be shrieking) that women who accuse men of this behavior must be believed, writing a letter in support of the man, when a writer for her TV show happened to be the one accused of harassment.  See, the woman must be believed, unless the woman is accusing someone Lena Dunham likes.
  • And then there are all these women in the fake news media who have been making up excuses for Al Franken’s horrid behavior over the last several days, because, like Clinton, he’s in favor of killing babies at full term.
  • So, what is it in the minds of liberal men who think it’s fine to abuse women, and what is it in the minds of liberal women who want to keep enabling them?  Easy:  Politics.  When you think it through to its logical conclusion, the answer is crystal clear.

Just another day in liberals politicize everything America.

That is all.

Al Franken Makes Life Really Hard For The Fake Media Moralists

Today’s Campaign Update

  • In real news, the U.S. House of Representatives passed the first major reform of the U.S. tax code in 31 years on Thursday.  *Yawn*
  • Ok, now to the fake news!  Isn’t it just so much fun watching as the same Democrats and fake journalists who have been calling for Roy Moore’s head for the last week twist themselves into logical pretzels finding rationales for Al Franken to keep his seat in the U.S. Senate?  A.B. Stoddard made a complete fool of herself on Franken’s behalf last night on the Fox Report panel, saying that well, Franken apologized and Ms. Tweeden said she doesn’t want him to resign, so, you know, it all ok.  She then hastily claimed “But I’m not defending Franken!” as her fellow panelists visibly snickered.
  • I didn’t d…wait, you have pictures?  Ok, well, yeah, I did that. – Yeah, Franken apologized for fondling Lee Ann Tweeden’s breasts while she slept.  Of course, the only reason he did even that is because…wait for it… we have a photo of Al Franken fondling Lee Ann Tweeden’s breasts while she slept!  Note to A.B.:  When faced with photographic proof of the act, the breast-fondler doesn’t really have much choice, does he?
  • When a fondle isn’t a fondle. – Stoddard and Franken’s other myriad fake media defenders – one NBC fake reporter even hilariously claimed that what he did “wasn’t really a fondle” – ignore the fact that the Minnesota Senator and SNL refugee denied forcibly french kissing Ms. Tweeden against her will and simply did not address her claims that he continued to harass her for the remainder of the USO tour they were on.
  • You made these rules, now live with them. – Look, liberals, we either have standards of behavior for senators or we don’t.  The women accusing these men are either to be believed, or they aren’t.  You don’t get to pick and choose depending on the party affiliation of the politician in question.  I think Roy Moore is a very, very weird dude who probably did some of the things he’s being accused of – there’s just too much smoke there for there not to be a fire.  But as long as Al Franken remains a member of the U.S. Senate, all you lefties just have to shut up now about Roy Moore.  Because that’s how this stuff works.
  • Like cockroaches creeping out from under the baseboards – Meanwhile, a bunch of liberals in the fake news media and in politics have suddenly gotten a conscience about their defense of a serial woman abuser named Bill Clinton for the last 25 years, and have been penning op-eds and giving interviews all week saying that hey, was it wrong for us to do that?  Are there rules against exposing yourself to and raping women over whom you hold power?  Gosh, if only we knew that then.
  • Of course, what is really going on here is that Bill Clinton – and his repugnant wife, Princess Pantsuit – have lost their political usefulness to all these liberals, so now they find it safe to suddenly realize that yep, rape is wrong, even when it’s committed by a President who likes abortion on demand.
  • So, hey all you liberals, it’s nice to see you finally admitting what I’ve been writing since 1992 – that your hero is a sleazebag who belongs in prison – but waiting until 2017 to publicly admit what you’ve really known about him all along, does not grant you absolution for the quarter century you spent defending him and assaulting the women he spent his adult life abusing.  Sorry, but that’s just not how this stuff works.
  • I don’t think ‘muzzle-loader’ means what they think it means. – The Washington Free Beacon reports that Americans For Responsible Solutions – the gun ban group run by former congresswoman Gabby Giffords – now wants to take away your…wait for it…MUZZLE LOADERS!  Yes, the friendly gun grabbers at ARS have decided that that 300 year-old musket that has been passed down in your family through the last 12 generations is “especially dangerous” because it fires a big bullet.
  • Someone really ought to let Ms. Giffords and her evil minions know that there are families of 58 victims of the recent mass killings in Las Vegas and 26 victims in Texas who wish to goodness the monsters who mowed down their loved ones had been armed with muzzle-loading, single shot rifles made during the War of 1812.  I swear I don’t make this stuff up.  Seriously, who could?

Just another day in liberal double standards America.

That is all.
