As Trump Negotiates, Democrats Self-Immolate

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

You thought Wendy Davis was a disaster for Democrats in 2014?  Lupe Valdez says “hold my beer.” – Texas Democrat gubernatorial nominee Lupe Valdez is making the closing of property tax “loopholes” one of her campaign’s major areas of focus.  Yesterday, the Dallas Morning News reported that Ms. Valdez – a former Dallas County Sheriff – owes more than $12,000 in delinquent property taxes.  Democrats:  If they didn’t exist, nobody in their right mind would want to make them up.

But..but…but…who are we gonna get to play the president in our next disaster movie? – Actor Morgan Freeman got his #MeToo moment yesterday, as no fewer than 8 women came forward to accuse him of all sorts of detestable harassment behavior.  This creates a severe casting problem for Hollywood’s producers, since it seems as if Mr. Freeman has appeared in about 50% of all movies filmed since about 1996.

Meanwhile, the scumbag di tutti scumbags, big Hollywood muckety-muck and good friend of Hillary and Oprah Harvey Weinstein, will apparently surrender himself to New York City police today on felony sexual assault charges.  We can expect a whole lot more surrendering himself on sexual assault charges to be in Mr. Weinstein’s future, as active investigations into his behavior are ongoing in at least three U.S. states and two other countries.  He was a very busy man.

In case you missed it, the Twitter meme wizards have provided this campaign tool to every Republican candidate running for office in this year’s mid-term elections:

San Fran Nan – the gift who just keeps on giving – to Republicans.

Democrats really should learn how to read, Part 9,587. – On Thursday morning, President Donald Trump issued a letter to the Crazy Little Fat Guy in North Korea seemingly cancelling the scheduled June 12 summit meeting between the two men in Singapore.  Citing the intemperate tone of recent official comments coming out of North Korea over the past week, Mr. Trump also expressed his willingness to resume negotiations over the de-nuclearization of the Korean Peninsula whenever the Norks calmed their crazy selves down.

Democrats all over the country – none of whom have bothered to read “The Art of the Deal” or make any other real effort to understand the way the President operates in high-stakes negotiations – spent most of the day literally celebrating what they believed was a big “win” for Kim Jong Un (because liberals will always side with the world’s despots over the United States whenever a Republican happens to be in the White House).  Had any of these people ever taken the time to try to understand Mr. Trump, they’d have known that the letter, and the brief speech he made later in the day on the subject, are classic examples of negotiating tactics that he has used many times in the past.

At about 4:20 CT yesterday afternoon, I decided to try to be helpful to all the Democrats out there on my Twitter account:

Less than an hour after that tweet was posted, the Norks responded with an official statement calling the President’s cancellation of the Singapore meeting “extremely regrettable,” and offering to meet with Mr. Trump “any time and in any form.”  The Kim government also issued a video that purports to depict the destruction of the country’s main nuclear weapons testing site.

In “The Art of the Deal”, one of the negotiating tactics Trump emphasizes is that you have to be willing to just get up and walk away from a bad deal.  This was the major failure of Barack Obama and John Kerry in their laughable negotiations over the deal with Iran – they were so desperate to get a deal, any old deal at all that would in their minds enhance Obama’s pathetic “legacy”, that they were never willing to just walk away.  So they ended up with one of the most horrific “deals” in world history, a “deal” that ended up requiring them to load $400 million in cash on a plane and fly it over to Tehran to give to the Mullahs.

Donald Trump isn’t going to do that.  He’s not going to sacrifice America’s national security and national treasure for reasons of personal vanity as Obama did.

We have to remember here that Trump is engaged in a highly complex negotiation involving not just two countries, but four:  the United States, North Korea, South Korea and China, which is North Korea’s main benefactor, and thus exerts tremendous influence on Kim’s behavior.  Despite what it says, Trump’s letter was not about recent intemperate statements coming from Kim and his official spokesmen.  The President is obviously dissatisfied with some aspect of what is being offered by either North Korea or China, and is not willing to put his name on an agreement until that matter is resolved favorably to the U.S.

We also need to realize that the President’s dissatisfaction may not even be about some issue directly related to North Korea – he could be trying to gain concessions out of China’s President Xi in ongoing tariff negotiations or some other China-related matter.  We don’t know right now, and the truth is that we may never know.

What we do know is that yesterday’s upheaval has not ended U.S./North Korea negotiations.  We also know Democrats very predictably jumped the gun because they still, 17 months after the 2016 election, have no understanding of how the current President of the United States operates, or for that matter, why he was elected to begin with.

Yesterday was just part of the art of the deal.  The deal may – or may not – ended up being delayed, but the rapid response by the Crazy Little Fat Guy proves that it isn’t dead, as every Democrat in America had obviously hoped.

[ADDENDUM]

About 30 minutes after I posted this piece, President Trump issued the following tweet:

I rest my case.

Just another day in the Art of the Deal America.

That is all.

Democrats’ Fading “Rising Star” and NBC’s Sleepy Chuck Todd

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Tired of all this Winning yet? – Hey, I’m old enough to remember last week, when every fake journalist in Texas and America was telling us that Texas senate candidate Robert “Beto” O’Rourke, an Irish guy who represents a largely-Hispanic congressional district (thus the ‘nickname’), was the Democrat Party’s “rising star” who was going to whip Ted Cruz in the general election this coming November.  Yeah, that was just another bit of fake news fed to all the fake reporters by the Democrats, who are desperate to pretend they have momentum and are about to have a “blue wave” election this Fall.

Even the increasingly disgusting leftwingers who infest the increasingly fake-newsy The Hill these days are facing up to reality now, with a new narrative on Irish Beto titled “O’Rourke faces uphill battle against Cruz after lackluster primary win”.  This comes after Irish Beto only managed to pull 62% of the vote against a couple of other Democrats with zero name recognition in the primary last week, receiving fewer than half the number of votes Cruz received in the GOP primary.  Clearly, the articulate and good looking Irish Beto is going to have to do more than be articulate and good-looking to appeal to Texas voters outside of Austin.

But don’t blame Irish Beto – this pattern of big “we’re gonna turn Texas blue!” buildup followed by a huge crash and burn at the ballot box is becoming an every-four-year tradition for the Democrats and their fake news media toadies in Texas.  Who could ever forget the gigantic buildup Texas and national media outlets gave to Wendy Davis, who thought she could ride a pro-abortion-until-birth-and-maybe-even-after-birth filibuster in the Texas Senate all the way to the governor’s office in 2014?

In that campaign, Barack Obama sent his Organizing for America clowns down to Austin to assist with the Davis effort, the web-based Texas Tribune became basically the Davis for Governor pep squad, and the New York Times treated its Upper East Side subscriber base to breathless weekly updates on its front page about the coming Reign of Wendy.  On election day, reality came home to roost, as Davis pulled in 38% of the vote against Republican Greg Abbott.

With the Texas Democrat Party probably stuck with a lackluster Dallas County sheriff as its candidate for the governor’s office (Sheriff Guadalupe Valdez, who will face some guy named Andrew White in a runoff for the nomination) Irish Beto has now become the Great Democrat/media Hope for 2018.  The truth is that his chances to defeat Senator Cruz were never any better than virtually non-existent, and all the fawning attention the NYTimes and Texas Tribune can muster on his behalf won’t change that.  Thus, Mr. O’Rourke is destined to become just the latest Great Democrat Disappointment in November, and join Ms. Davis as just another former Democrat “rising star” who has no future in politics.

Because this is Texas, not New York or California, and that is how this stuff works here.

God Bless Texas.

Meanwhile, all those NYTimes-reading Upper East Siders were tut-tutting and clicking their tongues in snobbish horror Saturday night as President Donald Trump delivered one of his classic ad lib stem-winders to a huge crowd in Pittsburgh.  Trump, fresh off a week of #Winning as only Trump can do, was pumped up and in rare form, as he went after his tormentors in the fake news media and the Democrat Party.  Here are some of the highlights:

Speaking of NBC fake journalist Chuck Todd:  The President first referred to Todd as “Sleepy Eyes Chuck Todd,” then followed with “He’s a sleepy son of a bitch, I’ll tell you.”  Wine glasses crashed to floors at dinner parties all around Central Park at that one.  The NYTimes tried to reach Todd for comment, but he was napping.

On CNN:  “…fake as hell CNN.  So fake.  The worst.”  Correct.

On the fact that his candidacy and presidency have been a boon for ratings at the cable TV networks, except for CNN:  “Could you imagine covering Bernie? Or Pocahontas?  How about that? Can you imagine having to cover Elizabeth Warren for four years?”  No.  We can’t.

On Mad Maxine Waters:  [She’s a] “low-IQ individual.”  He repeated this 100% true statement several times, just to irritate everyone in coastal California even more.

On Oprah Winfrey possibly running against him in 2020:  “I’d love Oprah to win, I’d beat Oprah. I know her weakness,” he said. “Wouldn’t we love to run against Oprah? I’d love it. That would be a painful experience for her.”  Again, all true, so delightfully true.

It was epic, all over the place, completely un-presidential, stream-of-consciousness Trump at his  best – or worst, if you live in the regional Democrat Party centers of New York, Hollywood or Chicago.

He should do this more often.

Just another day in the Democrats have no clue what to do about all of this 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.

Today’s Campaign Update (Because The Campaign Never Ends): 4.3.2017

  • I swear I don’t make this stuff up:  Real headline in Sunday’s Washington Examiner:  “Minimum Wage Activists Call Tipping Racist.”  This is the latest talking point being used by activists who want to implement a $15 minimum wage for all jobs, nationwide, a move that would obviously destroy millions of jobs in the process.  My wife and I are both “over-tippers” who generally tip more than the recommended 15-20% whenever the service is not awful, because we both had to work jobs like that at one point in our lives and know how hard they are.  But now, I suppose we’ll be called “over-racists” for doing so.  Honestly, the greatest fantasy writers in the world just could not make up the stuff progressives really think and say every day of the week.
  • How about ‘no’, Chuck?:  Cryin’ Chuckie Schumer told an interviewer on one of the Sunday morning talk shows about his latest bright idea to avoid nuking the filibuster over the Gorsuch nomination:  Withdraw Gorsuch’s name from consideration, and set up a committee consisting of both Republican and Democrat senators who would have to unanimously approve any subsequent nominee before he would go to the Senate Juduciary Committee for consideration.  Thus, you would have a committee making a recommendation to another committee making a recommendation to the full Senate.  Yeahhhhhhhhhh…no.
  • Hey, he’s got more credibility than our people do.:  When the fake editors at the Washington Post wanted an opinion piece to defend what the writer calls “Sound and accurate journalism”, did they reach out to one of their own fake “journalists”?  No.  Did they reach out to any of the thousands of other fake journalists working at other news outlets in the nation’s capital?  Nope.  Did they reach out to any of the tens of thousands of other fake journalists working at other media outlets all across America, or even in other countries?  Nopey.  No, when the WaPo’s fake editors want an opinion piece to defend “Sound and accurate journalism” they do to right, by God:  they go for an actor who once played a real journalist in a movie!  Yes, Robert Redford has an opinion piece in the Sunday WaPo in which he defends “Sound and accurate journalism.”  Mr. Redford apparently hasn’t gotten the memo that you could count the number of “sound and accurate journalists” in Washington today on the fingers of one hand.  All the others are just partisan hacks.  But hey, it’s been 42 years since he made that movie.  Give the guy a break.
  • Hey, think they can get Wendy Davis to run for Governor again?  That’d be great.:  In case you missed the earth-shattering news, the Texas Democratic Party has a new leading contender to be its sacrificial lamb to run against Senator Ted Cruz in the 2018 mid-term elections.  His name is Beto O’Rourke – a fantastic Texas name if there ever was one – and he currently represents Texas’s 16th congressional district in congress.  Beto is young, he’s smart, he’s articulate, he’s move-star good-looking, and hey, he even plays the guitar, so he’s cool, too.  Given all of that, he has about the same chance of defeating Ted Cruz in the 2018 mid-term elections as you or I do.  But he has a great, great name.
  • Because that’s what the fake news media is all about.:  The fake reporters at the NY Times reported over the weekend that Devin Nunes’ sources for the intelligence information on which he has been relying is two “White House staffers”, and even gave their names.  The story naturally received massive attention and repetition in the fake news media. Trouble is, that report, like pretty much everything else in the NY Times these days, was false.  Meanwhile, Adam Housley is reporting on Fox News this morning that his multiple sources inside U.S. intelligence agencies are telling him that the infamous liar Susan Rice was one of the high-ranking Obama officials who led the effort to spy on and unmask several members of the Trump Campaign and Transition Team.  We can bet there will be nothing but crickets on this story from the rest of the fake news media.

Just another weekend in fake news media America.

That is all.
