Saturday Trump Roundup – All The #Winning That’s Fit To Print

 

  • Tired of all this Winning yet?  Part I – For the 90th time since Election Day 2016, the Dow Jones Industrial Index closed at an all-time record high on Friday, and all other stock indeces did the same.  Do you really care that much about the President’s potty mouth?
  • Tired of all this Winning yet?  Part II – Retailers recorded the strongest holiday season sales in a decade.  Sales for November and December were up 5.5% over 2016.  Somewhere, Barack Obama’s talking points monkeys are trying to find a way for their guy to take credit.
  • Tired of all this Winning yet?  Part III – The IRS reported late Thursday that fully 90% of workers in the U.S. will see more take-home money in their paychecks as soon as February.  This is what San Fran Nan Pelosi refers to as “Armageddon.”
  • Tired of all this Winning yet?  Part IV – President Trump’s medical examination on Friday went “exceptionally well,” per the doctor in charge.  This is not really any surprise, but it is just one more nail in the coffin of the “Trump isn’t fit to hold the office” nonsense being pushed by the fake news media and the Democrats.
  • Tired of all this Winning yet?  Part V – Records show that the Yale psychiatry professor who unethically “diagnosed” the President as being mentally unstable doesn’t even have a license to practice.   Perhaps someone should diagnose her.
  • Where in the world is Hillary Clinton? Day 12. – Yes, friends, we are 12 days into 2018, and have still not heard a single public utterance from the Pantsuit Princess.  Oh, her Twitter account did issue a statement on the President’s “shithole” remark, but the Coughing Crook probably has a staff of half a dozen flunkies to man her Twitter feed.
  • I’m talking about actual words – you know, talking.  In public.  Not a word from the Fainting Felon, a dozen days into the year?  This is not normal.  Not normal at all.  Come to think of it, we haven’t seen anything out of Slick Willie either.  All year long.  Something’s up.  Wonder what it might be?
  • Speaking of Slick Willie, Elon Musk obviously learned a thing or two from him about public prevarication.  The headline at the Daily Caller this morning reads “Elon Musk Admits He Attended Sex Party, But That None Of The Activities Happened While He Was There”.   Sounds just like “Bill Clinton Admits To Smoking Pot, But Swears He Did Not Inhale”.  Slick must have lent Elon his old talking points monkeys.
  • Speaking of the Pantsuit Princess, New York Magazine revealed tape of abusive MSNBC fake host Chris Matthews – who somehow still has a job despite being revealed as a textbook harasser – talking about giving the Coughing Crook a “Bill Cosby pill” prior to interviewing her during the 2016 campaign.  ummmmm…that’s just gross.
  • The leftist UK Guardian ran a story on Friday titled “Is deep-red Texas ready for a gay Latina Democrat? Lupe Valdez thinks so”.  Ummm, no.  Probably not.  But it’s not because Ms. Valdez – who has led an incredibly admirable life that includes serving the country in the U.S. Army Reserve, and at the Department of Homeland Security before becoming Police Chief for the city of Dallas – is gay or Latina.  It’s because she’s in favor of abortion on demand, and she’s a Democrat in a state that hasn’t elected a Democrat to a statewide office since 1994.  No amount of wishful thinking on the part of the Texas Democrat Party or the fake news media is going to change that.  You don’t have to believe me – just ask Wendy Davis.
  • Paul Mirengoff has an excellent piece this morning at Powerline titled “Playing the Race Card on Immigration.”  You can read it for yourself – I highly recommend it – but I especially liked the closing line:  “It is cynical for Democrats and anti-Trumpers to play the race card in what is a legitimate policy dispute about immigration.”  Well, sure it is.  But playing the race card is all they got.
  • Finally, for all the Bernie Sanders fans out there, Daily Wire has a great piece this morning detailing the inevitable end game of Sanders’ socialist/communist policies that is playing itself out right now in Venezuela.  The headline reads “SOCIALIST PARADISE: Several Dead, 15 Injured In Fight For Food In Venezuela”.  Read the whole thing.  Seriously, just read it – it’ll do you good.  You might even learn something.
Just another day in Donald Trump just keeps Winning America.
That is all.

America Enters Its First “Shithole Countries” News Cycle

[Warning:  This is the first PG-13 version of Today’s Campaign Update.  Today’s Campaign Update will return to its traditional PG format tomorrow.]

  • Me and Rush, tight as ticks. – I caught Rush Limbaugh’s opening segment the last two days, and I’m beginning to think he’s reading my Daily Campaign Updates during his daily show prep. If you listen to the first 8 minutes of his show the last two days and compare that to what I wrote, there’s a lot of not just the same points, but a lot of exact wording being used.  I’m cool with that, Rush.  But give me a shout out sometime, ok?  Thanks.
  • You just cannot make this stuff up. – USA Today reported on Thursday that many radical “women’s” advocates are ditching their pink pussyhats.  Why?  Oh, you’ll never guess why.  Go ahead, guess.  Nope, try again.  Nope.  Ok, here’s the answer:  They’re ditching their pussy hats because, and I’m quoting here, “the pink pussyhat excludes and is offensive to transgender women and gender non-binary people who don’t have typical female genitalia and to women of color because their genitals are more likely to be brown than pink.”  There are a million things – literally – I could say about this, but in the interest of decorum, I will just leave it at that.
  • Terminally un-funny comic and notorious drunk Chelsea Handler demonstrated yet again what a perfect spokeswoman she is for the progressive left on Wednesday by accusing – in the most graphic language possible – U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham of being a closeted homosexual on her Twitter account.  Senator Graham, a lifelong bachelor, has steadfastly denied this claim repeatedly during his political career.  Remember when  progressives were the tolerant ones?  Or at least put up the pretense of being so?  Yeah, good times…
  • Ok, so, we are well in to the “shithole countries” news cycle, in which everyone in the fake news media goes berserk over a comment made in what was supposed to be a closed meeting by the President of the United States.  I won’t defend that language, which is completely inappropriate for any U.S. president to use about other countries.  Nor will I defend the President’s timing, which steps all over his message on immigration and destroyed the narrative of what was otherwise an extremely positive day for his immigration policies.  But I will defend the sentiment:  We simply need a smarter immigration policy for our country.
  • We should be – as our country has done throughout most of its history – focused on bringing in people who can actually contribute to our society in meaningful ways, and who wish to assimilate into our society.  We have spent the last 50 years under an immigration policy designed to favor immigrants who have no interest in assimilating into U.S. society, simply because such immigrants are more likely to vote Democrat.  The Democrat Party wants a Balkanized country, a divided America, because a divided country favors its electoral politics.  Simple as that.
  • But even Democrats weren’t always as interested in dividing America along racial and ethnic lines.  In pushing his 1965 immigration bill, Ted Kennedy said , “[the bill] will not inundate America with immigrants from any one country or area, or the most populated and deprived nations of Africa and Asia.”  That’s 52 years ago, of course, but YouTube is full of videos of Democrat luminaries like Chuck Schumer, the Pantsuit Princess and Harry Reid expounding on the need to protect our borders, send “illegal aliens” (yes, as recently as 9 years ago, Schumer used that term in the well of the Senate) back to their home countries, and promote policies that encourage new legal immigrants to learn English and assimilate into American society.  Yeah, good times…good times…
  • All the “shithole countries” talk aside, all of you Trump supporters who spend too much time listening to professional rabble rousers like Ann Coulter and #nevertrumpists who were warning you that the President was about to sell the country out by agreeing to amnesty with no border protections should have been breathing sighs of relief at day’s end on Thursday.  President Trump’s frustrated remark came in a meeting with several pro-amnesty senators who believed they had just the deal for him:  a deal that would provide the DREAMers a 10-15 year path to citizenship, modify (but not eliminate) chain migration, provide a down payment on border security measures without full funding, and modify (but not eliminate) the immigration lottery system, the continuation of which was what led to Mr. Trump becoming so irritated.
  • That was a classic Washington DC compromise deal, a conglomeration of counterproductive half-measures in which everyone involved would get part, but not all of what they wanted, and could have all declared “victory”.  President Trump turned it down flat, because it was a lousy deal for the country, and because it would have violated his campaign promises on immigration.  Make no mistake:  there is a deal to be made here, and it is obvious.  That deal is that the DREAMers get immediate legal status with a path to citizenship; the border wall/enhanced security gets fully funded; chain migration ends; and the immigration lottery goes away over time.  That’s the deal the President will accept, and it is completely consistent with his campaign promises.
  • Honestly, folks, how many of those campaign promises must this man keep to you before you all start showing a little faith in him?

Just another day in “shithole countries” America.

That is all.
