You Want a New FBI Director? How About Michael Horowitz?

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Yes, because remember how much she did for Haiti.  Wait, what?  – In keeping with her life-long belief that there’s a sucker born every minute, the Pantsuit Princess has decided to use the media-generated fake border crisis as a fundraiser.  Yes, even though she isn’t technically running for anything right now, the Grasping Grifter, even at her advanced age, just cannot let a good fake crisis go to waste.

So she sent out a fundraising email yesterday to all of her millions of dimwit supporters, urging them to send her money to her new political organization, Onward Together, so these morons can think they are “doing something” by purchasing the Fainting Felon a new Lamborghini or whatever she plans to do with this latest batch of ill-gotten gain.  Because, hey, there really is a sucker born every minute, and they all voted for the Coughing Crook in 2016.

Here’s what the fake border crisis is really all about. – It’s not about soulless leftist ghouls who support Planned Parenthood’s trafficking in baby body parts suddenly caring about children, it’s not about the Trump Administration’s ‘zero tolerance’ policy, it’s not about wanting to keep families together or any of the nonsense First Lady Laura Bush included in her disgraceful op/ed in the WaPo yesterday (Japanese internment camps?  Really, Laura?  Who talked you into putting your name to that line of abject BS?).  Those are just the well-coordinated talking points on the matter agreed to by the Democrat Party and their propaganda agents in the national news media.

This is about what immigration fights are always about:  The Democrats want to turn our nation into just another third world country filled with people dependent on the government, and they believe the best way to do that is to flood the southern border with immigrants from third world countries.  This current effort is an attempt to destroy the rules that govern legitimate requests for asylum.  Those rules currently apply only to very specific life-threatening situations:  Democrats want to expand those rules so that they essentially will allow anyone in for any reason, including – you guessed it – poverty.

Think about it:  almost all of the people currently being held in these migrant centers are from central America.  They traveled well over 1,000 miles in an arduous journey through Mexico where, if they really needed asylum from a life-threatening situation, they could have sought asylum.

Did any of them do that?  No.  Why?  Because they don’t want asylum in Mexico, they want to live in America, where the government doles out benefits like no one actually has to ulimately pay for them.  Before they left their home countries, most of these “refugees” have in fact been trained by American social justice warriors on exactly what fake story to tell when they reach the U.S. in order to gain entry, an effort that began about half a decade ago during – you guessed it – the Obama Administration.

President Trump says that isn’t going to happen, “Not on my watch,” and more than 500 days into his presidency he has given us no reason not to believe he means it.  But there are a whole bunch of weak-kneed establishment Republicans up on Capitol Hill who will sell you all out in a heartbeat for any legislation that “solves” this issue.  So, you’d best all get on the phone and warn your congressman or woman to think twice.  Trust me, some of them really need the warning.

 

Meanwhile, up on Capitol Hill, DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz and feckless FBI Director Christopher Wray testified before the Senate Judiciary Committee about the IG’s report issued last Thursday, which covered the FBI’s fake 2016 investigation into the Pantsuit Princess’s email scandal.

As I predicted in yesterday’s Campaign Update, Wray was his typical dissembling self, reciting careful talking points written for him by other people to recite, deflecting, refusing to answer on false grounds and just generally looking like the small and ineffective man he obviously is.  His smallness and ineffectiveness were only amplified by having to sit next to Horowitz, who, even with one hand obviously tied behind his back by Rod Rosenstein, was as forthcoming as he could be and did his best to provide the Committee with as much information as he possibly could.

The session began with Chairman Chuck Grassley tossing out the first bombshell, detailing the fact that he had also invited former FBI Director and current teenage drama queen James Comey to testify, and that Comey’s lawyer had sent back a decline letter in which he stated Comey, if forced to testify, would exercise his 5th amendment right against self-incrimination.  This huge news was of course studiously ignored by the fake national news media.

Horowitz stuck with the obviously dictated talking point that he didn’t find “documentary evidence” that the blatant political bias exposed on the part of FBI Super Duper Agent Peter Strzok, ex-FBI lawyer Lisa Page, ex-FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe and Comey himself influenced the conduct of the fake investigation, but no one was buying it.  And, despite that absurd protestation, Horowitz did manage to sprinkle in details of all manner of obvious bias throughout his answers to the pointed questions coming from some of the committee members, including Lindsey Graham, John Kennedy and Ted Cruz, in addition to Grassley himself.

In addition to those details, Horowitz also laid out two big pieces of new information that were not included in his report:

  • He informed the committee that the Teenage Drama Queen himself is actually the subject of a current, ongoing investigation into his mishandling of classified documents; and
  • He confirmed the existence of a federal grand jury looking into all of this, which is most likely associated with U.S. Attorney John Huber’s ongoing investigation into all of the FBI/DOJ’s 2016 efforts to fix the election.

Many, including me, have long suspected that Huber must have at least one and possibly multiple grand juries convened for months now, but before yesterday, no one at DOJ had confirmed that likelihood.

Horowitz will testify again today, this time before the House Judiciary Committee chaired by Bob Goodlatte.  The membership of that committee includes bulldogs like Jim Jordan, Trey Gowdy, Matt Gaetz and Ron DeSantis, so expect some real fireworks from today’s session.

Interestingly, our useless FBI Director will not be accompanying Horowitz in today’s testimony.  Which only further raises the question:  Why is this guy in that job?  What good is he to anyone?  He’s nothing but a career bureaucrat, obviously in way over his head, and he has no intention of reforming anything.

Some have speculated that Wray is just a placeholder who will be replaced by a more effective, reform-minded leader when all the dust has settled from these investigations.  Trey Gowdy’s name has often come up as a possible replacement, given his background as a prosecutor before he ran for congress.  Gowdy in fact almost appears to be angling for that eventuality, given his always equivocal public statements regarding the FBI and its “stellar” “rank and file.”

I have a better idea:  How about making Horowitz Director of the FBI when all of the investigations are done?  You want a reformer, how about the guy who knows where all the agency’s bad actors and bodies are buried better than anyone else?  You want someone who knows how to manage?  This guy has been managing a gigantic staff conducting dozens of simultaneous investigations for a decade now.  You want someone who isn’t shy about bucking the system and isn’t squeamish about fighting higher-ups?  Horowitz has been doing that his entire career.

It’ll probably never happen, but after yesterday, it sure seems like a heck of a good idea.  Just throwing it out there.

Just another day in the drama never ends America.

That is all.

The Fakest Fake News This Week Comes From an Unexpected Source

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Hey, remember that “Blue Wave” that was going to carry Irish Beto O’Rourke to a smashing victory over Ted Cruz in November?. – Yeah, that’s not really a thing, no matter how much some desperate media mavens in Texas want it to happen.  The Blue Wave media lobby’s hopes were raised back in early April when Quinnipiac University issued a poll purporting to show the race between Irish Beto and Cruz within the margin of error, with Cruz holding just a 47-44 lead.

But a new Quinnipiac poll issued on Wednesday now pegs Cruz’s lead at a much more believable 51-40, which is likely within a point or two of where it will end up finishing in November.  The same poll has Texas Governor Greg Abbott holding a whopping 19 point edge over the latest poor soul the Democrat Party nominated to be its sacrificial lamb this fall, former Dallas County Sheriff Lupe Valdez.  This is a dramatic 10-point uptick for Abbott since the April poll.  Abbott defeated Democrat Wendy Davis by almost 20 percent of the vote four years ago, and other than wishful thinking on the part of the media and the professional political class in Austin, there is no real reason to believe Sheriff Valdez will improve on that performance in any substantial way.

Speaking of Greg Abbott, it’s not even 2 weeks down the road from the tragic school shootings in Santa Fe, Texas, and the Texas Governor has already spearheaded an effort to develop a plan to provide upgraded security and mental health screening at the state’s public schools.  The total cost of the plan is $110 million – the majority of which can be funded with existing federal grants – and the great preponderance of the measures it contains should be implemented by the start of the next school year in mid-August.

Naturally, media stories “reporting” on the plan went out and copiously quoted Ms. Valdez and other Democrats and teacher’s union reps who knee-jerked in opposition, but they’re just lost voices wandering the woods as the adults in the state go about trying to provide better protection for the state’s school children.  Because most Texans tend to like leaders who actually exercise leadership rather than just point fingers and criticize.  One would think Texas Democrats would eventually figure this out, but one would apparently be wrong.

God Bless Texas.

Fakest #fakenews of the week, and it’s not from CNN, NBC, the NYTimes or the WaPo?  Can this be true? – Yes, it is true, and the story comes from the Wall Street Journal.

The fakery starts with the story’s headline:  “‘Tropical Messiah’: A Trump-Style Politician Is Mexican Presidential Front Runner”, and only goes downhill from there.  The subject of the story is the race for the presidency in Mexico in general and specifically on the guy who is going to win, Andrés Manuel López Obrador.  The WSJ spells Mr. Obrador’s name correctly, and that’s where the story begins to break down.

At one point, the story describes Obrador as a “leftist nationalist”, hardly the path being followed by U.S. President Trump, who has governed as the most conservative chief executive in modern times.  Guess who else was a “leftist nationalist”:  the late Venezuelan thug Hugo Chavez.  Oh, and the guy who succeeded Chavez, Nicolas Maduro.  These guys were role models for Barack Obama, not Donald Trump.  Those guys are also responsible for turning what was a thriving and prosperous Venezulean economy into a socialist misery pit.

Like every other person who has run for the Mexican presidency as the drug cartels have risen in power over the last 30 years, Obrador promises to rid the nation of …wait for it… the drug cartels!  Great idea – tell us how socialism is going to accomplish that.

Frightfully, Obrador has also hinted that he will also re-nationalize the nation’s oil industry, just as Mexico, under the leadership of current President Enrique Pena Nieto, has begun to really benefit from the opening of the industry to foreign investment that took place in 2013.  A re-nationalization and seizure of assets of private investors will ensure that no company will be willing to invest in Mexico’s economy again for decades to come.

The authors of the otherwise fawning profile even appear to recognize this reality with the following passage:

“Foreign investors are nervous about Mr. López Obrador’s plans to reassess Mexico’s opening to private investment in the country’s oil industry, which is expected to bring $150 billion to the energy sector. They also worry about his threats to cancel Mexico City’s multibillion [dollar] new airport, currently under construction.

Such talk reminds many Mexicans of President Luis Echeverría, who governed Mexico in the 1970s. Mr. Echeverría combined import-substitution policies, sharply increased government spending and socialist rhetoric. The story ended badly: Inflation skyrocketed and the government devalued the peso for the first time in 22 years.”

Yes, and it is inevitable that this story will end badly as well, because that story – as with the story currently playing out in Venezuela – is in fact the inevitable outcome of the implementation of the socialist, command-and-control policies that Obrador’s election will inevitably bring to the country.

How the story’s authors see any of this as being similar to the story playing out in America today – a story in which the U.S. economy is booming thanks to the overtly anti-socialist policies being implemented by Donald Trump – is simply mind-boggling.

The story playing out in Mexico’s presidential election right now is a tragic one, one that does not deserve the fantasy-based, kid glove treatment of Obrador provided by the Wall Street Journal.

Just another day in the fake news comes from all directions America.

That is all.

Your Fake News Media in Action!

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Hey, let’s do that with Obamacare, too! – Chuckie Schumer announced on Friday that he’s introducing a bill that would essentially rescind federal marijuana laws because, he claims, he is such a huge believer in the concept of federalism that he thinks we should just let the states decide on whether pot should be legal or not.  This marks the first issue in his long political career on which the old collectivist expressed a fealty to federalism.

Talking Points Parrot for Senate! – Just minutes after Schumer had held his press conference, Texas senate candidate Irish Beto O’Rourke took to his Twitter feed to join in the fun:

So, there you go, Texans – you have a choice of re-electing Ted Cruz or replacing him with a guy who will loyally do or say whatever Chuck Schumer wants him to do or say for the next six years.  This really shouldn’t be hard.

Your Fake News Media In Action! – At mid-day Friday, the Justice Department announced the bombshell story that Inspector General Michael Horowitz is investigating drama queen ex-FBI Director James Comey for potential violations of the Espionage Act.  So I thought I’d go to Politico.com to see what that political news outlet of record for the Inside-the-Beltway set had to say about this huge story.

The answer, as of 6:43 a.m. Central Time this morning is…nothing.  Wait, can that be right?  Let me go through all the stories on the landing page – there are dozens of them – again.  Hold on….

Ok, yeah, that’s right.  Not a word.  Politico does have front page headlines about EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt’s apartment, one about a half-century-ago affair between Fidel Castro and some ABC reporter, a typically slanted “analysis” of a bunch of fake “conflicts” Rudy Giuliani brings to his new role on the Trump defense team, and an ultra-critical story about what some liberal fake journalist hack thinks Melania Trump can learn from the late Barbara Bush.

But not a peep about the stood-up homecoming queen ex-FBI Director being investigated for violations of the nation’s Espionage Act.

Holy cow.

Your Fake News Media in Action!  Part II – CNN’s Chief Political Analyst, Gloria Borger, is no doubt on thin ice at the fakest of all the fake news outlets this morning after she made the enormous error of actually speaking truthfully about the absurd lawsuit filed by the DNC on Friday.  When asked how she would classify the suit by fake host Brooke Baldwin, Borger called it a “100 percent stunt”.  Here’s the exchange:

“How much of this do you think is just a stunt versus a pretty smart ploy for the court of public opinion?” Brooke Baldwin asked political analyst Gloria Borger.

“A 100 percent stunt, 100 percent,” Borger responded. “They want to get in the act, obviously. They want to keep the story moving. This is nothing new.”

Note how Baldwin attempted to get Borger to the “right” answer in the view of CNN’s management and the Democrat Party with her “pretty smart ploy” lead-in.  But Borger slipped up, and now CNN – which is no doubt intent upon focusing on this fake story for the entire weekend in order to avoid having to report on all the bad-for-Democrats stories related to Comey, Andrew McCabe and the flailing Mueller investigation – is stuck trying to find a way to rationalize the moment of inadvertent honesty by its vaunted el jefe Political Analyst.  Good luck with that, guys and gals.

Your Fake News Media in Action!  Part III – Oh, hey, the Crazy Little Fat Guy in North Korea announced on Friday that he is suspending his missile testing program and completely closing down his main missile test site in advance of his anticipated meeting with President Trump next month.  CNN, MSNBC, the WaPo and the NYTimes will spend all weekend twisting themselves into pretzels trying to rationalize how to deny Mr. Trump any credit for this happy turn of events.  Good luck with that one, too.

Your Fake News Media in Action!  Part IV – Finally, since no one at any of the fake news media outlets is honest enough to report it, President Donald Trump (I never tire of typing those three words) took to his Twitter feed late Friday night to point out a key fact related to the Comey memos that were released this week, 8 of 15 pages of which contained redactions marked “classified”:

Yes, some of us know what it means.  But you’ll never get anyone in the fake news media to acknowledge that reality.  Nice try, though.

 

Just another day in fake news media America.

That is all.

There Won’t Be Any “Blue Wave” In Texas This Year

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Tired of all this Losing yet? – Buckle your seat belts, it’s gonna be a rocky few days – and maybe more than that – on the stock markets.  The resignation of President Trump’s Chief Economic Adviser, Gary Cohn, pretty much ensures that.  Cohn’s resignation creates uncertainty in the direction of economic policy, and if there is one thing investors hate more than anything else, it’s uncertainty where policy is concerned.

Cohn announced he will be leaving in a few weeks after the President made the decision to move forward with tariffs on steel and aluminum against his adviser’s wishes.  Or at least, that’s the stated reason.  It seems more likely that Cohn, a globalist Democrat fish out of water in this administration who has frequently clashed not only with President Trump but with several other senior advisers and cabinet officials, decided this would be a convenient time to make his exit and get back to making gobs of money with Goldman Sachs.

After all, it isn’t as if Cohn had been overruled on matters of economic policy on a regular basis.  Plus, it isn’t as if Mr. Trump’s plans to levy such tariffs were any big secret when Cohn took the job.  Trump made that explicit promise time and time again on the campaign trail during 2015 and 2016, and we’ve all seen that he is pretty much laser-focused on keeping such campaign promises.

If Cohn really is so thin-skinned that not getting his way on one issue is enough to make him decide to quit, then he probably needs to go back to hanging out with fellow liberals anyway.  No word yet on who the replacement might be, but putting together a list of candidates who actually support the Trump “America First” program might be a good place to start the search.  After all, that’s another promise the President made throughout his campaign:  No time like the present to start keeping it where his chief economic adviser is concerned.

Democrats in action. – Jihad supporter and ironic “women’s” march organizer Linda Sarsour was arrested at the U.S. Capitol building yesterday.  The radical anti-Semite was hauled off with several of her jihadist friends on charges of “civil disobedience”, whatever that means.  The group had refused to leave when asked to do so by Ryan’s staffers, insisting they be allowed to meet with the Speaker ahead of others who actually had appointments to see him.

The subject these jihadists wanted to meet about?  DACA.  That’s right – they wanted to meet about the DACA “Kids” (Average age:  26), who are in this country illegally, an issue about which Sarsour literally has no skin in the game whatsoever.

Think about the literal perfection of this incident:  A bunch of leftist radicals insisting upon jumping the line ahead of people who had played by the rules so they could meet with the Speaker in support of a bunch of illegal immigrants who insist upon jumping the immigration line ahead of thousands of others who are playing by the legal immigration rules.  If you pointed that irony out to Sarsour, she wouldn’t get it.  She is a Democrat, after all.

That “Wave” still looks pretty darn Red in Texas. – Hey, remember all that talk over the last couple of weeks about a “Blue Wave” supposedly coming to Texas, as a supposed “record” number of Democrat voters turned out during the early voting period for the primary elections that took place on Tuesday?  Remember how the state’s Democrat Party had supposedly finally gotten its act together, how the Ds were actually fielding living human being candidates in all of the state’s 36 congressional races, how Democrat “rising star” Beto O’Rourke was going to beat Republican Ted Cruz in the U.S. senate race?  Yeah, that was just yet another fake news media-generated myth.

That myth was generated by media outlets like the Dallas Morning News and the web-based Texas Tribune looking only at early voting numbers coming in from the state’s big cities, where Democrats tend to do their best in a state in which their party has not won a statewide election since 1994.  Turns out that when you look at the voting totals from the entire state, including all those rural areas where Republicans dominate, the results from yesterday’s primaries look pretty similar to how they’ve looked for the past quarter of a century.

Per the Texas Secretary of State’s official election returns, Democrat turnout was just 6.79% overall, despite the record number of early votes.  As is always the case with Texas Democrats, they just don’t show up to cast votes in person on Election Day.  Meanwhile, GOP turnout was 10.10%, and the total votes cast in statewide races for Republicans out-paced the vote totals for Democrats by roughly 1.5 million to 1.0 million.

If those ratios hold firm come November, they translate to basically the same 60/40 GOP advantage in statewide races that the Republicans have won every four years since 1994.  In other words, there won’t be any “blue wave” coming to Texas, or anywhere else for that matter, come November.  But hey, you can’t blame the fake news media for giving it the old college try – that’s what they think they’re in business to do.

God Bless Texas.

Just another day in the only wave in Texas is a big ol’ red one America.

That is all.

President Trump Should Let Chuck And Nancy Have Their Government Shut-Down

  • First Lady Melania Trump stopped in at a local Whataburger while on a visit to Corpus Christi on Wednesday.  While the nitwits who infest Vanity Fair and the NYTimes are surely only interested in which shoes she wore to order her Whataburger with cheese and fries, I am officially in awe of our First Lady after that gesture to the people of Texas.  If you’ve never had a Whataburger and aren’t familiar with the company’s history and the place it occupies in Texas culture, you won’t understand why.  But trust me, every native Texan does.
  • It’s Senator Smalley Day in the U.S. Senate! – That’s right:  Today is the day when the terminally smarmy jackass Senator from Minnesota – who, let’s all never forget, acquired his seat solely due to massive voter fraud – announces that he has decided he is gropey enough, he’s perverted enough, and dog-gonnit, women hate him.  Because of all of that, he will resign his illegitimately-obtained seat and let Minnesota’s Democrat Governor appoint his replacement, who will get to serve through 2020.  Couldn’t happen to a nicer guy.
  • After congress passed an actual law in 1995 mandating the U.S. move its embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to the Israeli capital of Jerusalem, President Bill Clinton signed the law and promised to get it done, but then caved in to pressure from the terrorists who run Palestine because they said it would negatively impact the Middle East “peace process.”  George W. Bush, when running for president in 2000, also promised to make this move, but then, once in office, caved in to pressure from the terrorists who run Palestine because they said it would negatively impact the Middle East “peace process.”   Barack Hussein Obama, when running for president in 2000, also promised to make this move, but then, once in office, caved in to pressure from the terrorists who run Palestine because they said it would negatively impact the Middle East “peace process.”  Are we beginning to detect a pattern here?
  • Donald J. Trump, when running for president in 2016, promised to make this move, and then, once in office, began to receive massive pressure from the terrorists who run Palestine not to do it, because they said it would negatively impact the Middle East “peace process.”  Faced with the previous 22 years of the very definition of insanity, President Trump yesterday realized that there is no “peace process” if our country keeps just giving in to the terrorists who run Palestine, and announced that he’s going to actually obey the law congress passed in 1995, and move the U.S. embassy to Jerusalem, where it has always belonged.  So nice to have a POTUS who doesn’t pander to terrorists, and who is actually focused on keeping the promises he made during his campaign.
  • This action by President Trump is, in a microcosm, the main reason why he is POTUS today.  He was elected to do the things his weak-kneed predecessors refused to do, to use the office of the presidency to protect the interests of American citizens and America’s allies, priorities that no president has really focused on since Ronald Reagan.
  • All of which brings me to this week’s negotiations over extending the continuing resolution that keeps the government funded.  With Chuck Schumer and San Fran Nan threatening to shut down the government because they want amnesty for all the “Dreamers”, weak-kneed Republicans in congress are running scared because they know the fake news media will put the blame for the shut-down on them.
  • My question to them is, so what?  Have you learned nothing from history?  The last time the Republicans got blamed by the fake news media for shutting down the federal government was 2013, when Ted Cruz single-handedly dragged the party kicking and screaming to negotiate something meaningful into the budget bill under consideration at the time.  14 months later, the GOP went on to win a massive tidal wave victory in the next mid-term congressional elections in 2014.  Why?  Because by shutting down the government, even for just a few days, Republicans in congress energized their base by demonstrating they actually do have the ability to stand for something.
  • But this week, every congressional Republican is begging President Trump to save them from getting blamed for shutting down the government again.  What is wrong with this picture?  Do these people never learn that they are going to get negative media treatment no matter what they do, for the simple fact that they are Republicans?  How many times must that lesson be pounded into their brains before they quit hitting their head up against the same brick wall?
  • Now is the time to do something meaningful, folks.  Just kicking the can down the road for the thousandth time only helps the Democrats.  Not only should the GOP refuse to include anything about the “Dreamers” in this CR, they should refuse to pass anything that doesn’t include funding for the border wall.  This constant surrendering in the face of the first sign of adversity is the main reason why congressional Republicans are detested by a growing number of naturally Republican voters.
  • This is a potential teaching moment for President Trump.  There is no doubt his instinct will be to let Chuck and Nancy shut the government down if they want to, and then get on this Twitter feed and pound them for as long as it lasts.  That’s exactly what he should do, for the benefit of the Republican Party and the country.
  • The Republicans in congress have been repeating this exact failed strategy in budget negotiations for far too long.  It’s up to President Trump to stop the insanity.  Shut.  It.  Down.

Just another day in stop the madness 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.

Obama’s Policy Legacy Is Dying, But His Cultural Legacy Lives On

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

  • The Obama policy legacy continues to be systematically repealed by President Trump and congress, but sadly, the Obama cultural legacy will live on for many years thanks to the hundreds of utterly corrupt individuals he appointed to the federal judiciary.  Last night we saw the latest example of what will become a long-term lawless, corrupting influence in our daily lives, as Hawaii District Court Judge Derrick Watson issued his latest extra-constitutional ruling related to the President’s travel ban.  No doubt many of you have been laboring under the illusion that the U.S. Supreme Court – which has already ruled on the ban – is the final arbiter of judicial actions in our country.  Silly you.
  • The Supreme Court, if you remember, decided that the President’s ban is clearly constitutional, but that it should not apply to those who have close relatives in the U.S.  The Trump Administration interpreted that exception to include brothers, sisters, children and parents of U.S. citizens.  Mr. Watson – he clearly doesn’t deserve to be referred to as “Judge” – has taken it upon himself to decide for the entire nation that the Administration’s interpretation is just too darn narrow, and has ordered that the exception be expanded to “grandparents, grandchildren, aunts, uncles and”…wait for it…wait for it…COUSINS!
  • Now, think about that last one for a minute.  Mr. Watson (Sherlock Holmes would no doubt be ashamed) does not put any limitation on what that particular designation means.  Is it just first cousins?  Second cousins?  Should we include 3rd and 4th cousins twice removed?  What about step cousins – do they have a pressing need to just willy-nilly be allowed into our country for some unexplained reason?
  • And how are our already-overwhelmed immigration officials supposed to verify such claims to cousin-ship?  Are they supposed to get online, go out to Ancestry.com, pay to establish accounts for such immigrants, and trace their ancestry back to some great-great-great-grand uncle they have in common with a U.S. resident?  See the problem?
  • So, the inevitable result of Mr. Watson’s order here will be what Barack Hussein Obama always sought to create for our society in every decision he made:  Chaos.  This is what leftist radical community organizers do, it’s what Barack Obama has spent his entire adult life doing, and it is what his hundreds of judicial appointees will continue to try to do to our society long after Mr. Obama has left office.
  • If any of this surprises you, you just haven’t been paying attention.
  • In other news, a truck carrying a load of slimy eels overturned on an Oregon highway on Thursday, and all I could think of was that this is just like when Congress comes back into session from one of its 752 annual recesses.
  • Speaking of congress, Senate Republicans revealed their  latest version of Obamacare reform legislation, and guess what?  The only “free market” piece of its 200+ pages is the 2 sentence amendment proposed by Texas Senator Ted Cruz.  Otherwise, the bill looks an awful lot like…well, it looks an awful lot like Obamacare, retaining as it does most of Obamacare’s taxes and subsidies, although it would at least eliminate the clearly unconstitutional (I don’t give a damn what Justice Roberts says) personal mandate.
  • So it’s not the promised “repeal and replace”, but rather a modest reform of the current system.   But, as modest as it is, it would reduce the mushrooming federal budget deficit, provide consumers will vastly more options in their health insurance choices, and reduce paperwork burdens on caregivers.  The wretched Susan Collins and libertarian Rand Paul have already announced they won’t vote for the bill, but the rest of Senate Rs, if they give a damn about the country, had better line up behind it and get it passed.  If they don’t, there will be hell to pay at the voting booth next November.

Just another day in Slimy Eel America.

That is all.
