Saturday Scattershooting While Wondering Whatever Happened To That Delightful Jill Stein?

Today’s Campaign Update

  • Funniest Story of the Week – This is a little off the beaten path for the Campaign Update, but it’s too awesome to ignore.  Turns out that trying to stage a Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show in China is a little more challenging than organizers had originally hoped.  Tone deaf singer Katy Perry was scheduled to perform at the event, but was unable to obtain a visa when Chinese officials were informed that, during a 2015 concert in Taipei, Ms. Perry wore a dress adorned with great big sunflowers.  Given that the sunflower has been adopted as a symbol by anti-government rebels, the government has decided that Ms. Perry is now persona non grata.  #Irony
  • California Dreamin’, er, nightmare – Public officials in California continue to get caught abusing their constituents, but somehow the situation out there just keeps getting worse.  The Desert Sun reports that two towns, Coachella and Indio, in a money-raising scheme, partnered with the law firm of Silver and Wright to prosecute their citizens for warrants outstanding on minor crimes.  The deal with the shysters provided that, not only would the offending citizen be on the hook for the fines related to their violations, they would also get billed for massive legal fees charged by the law firm.  Thus, one guy who owed a $900 fine for expanding his living room without a permit got hit with legal bills for $26,000. When he appealed, the legal bill went up to $42,000.  In Texas, city leaders who tried a scam like this one would soon have their butts severely kicked.  In California, they’ll probably all get re-elected.
  • ESPN Continues Its Assault On Middle America – Long-time ESPN host Scott Van Pelt proved this week that the folks at ESPN don’t care if anyone outside of the social justice warrior community watches their programming or not, having this to say about ordinary Americans who get upset about all the leftwing political commentary that continues to infest the dying network’s programming:

    “If you truly wanna boycott the NFL and you wanna boycott ESPN, the notion that some guy sitting out there, or gal, and they decide, ‘you know what, I’m gonna cut my entire cable package because ESPN gave an award on a made-up show in July because there’s no sports, to a woman who used to be a man, so I’m now not gonna have any cable TV at all and I’m gonna sit around at night and read books by candlelight like olden times because of that,’ that’s not happening. And if you did that, than you’re so dumb that I can’t even pray for you because you’re beyond hope.”  Alrighty then.

  • Someone Give Ted Lieu a Pacifier, Quick! – Terminally insipid California Democrat Cong. Ted Lieu tossed a fit on CNN Friday evening after Attorney General Jeff Sessions made some pretty funny opening remarks at a speech before the Federalist Society in Washington.  Sessions, mocking the Democrats’ unending Russia collusion fantasy play, started his speech by facetiously asking, “Is Ambassador Kislyak in the room?” Sessions asked the crowd. “Before I get started here. Any Russians? Anybody been to Russia? Got a cousin in Russia or something?”  Funny stuff, given the idiocy the AG has had to endure from Democrat sleazebags this year over a meeting he had fifteen months ago with the Russian Ambassador while still a Senator.
  • But Ted Lieu, who is never amused, was predictably not amused.  “Jeff Sessions still doesn’t get it,” Lieu told CNN’s fake host Wolf Blitzer, “He is not in trouble because he happened to be in places where there were Russians.”  Lieu of course ignores the fact that his Democrat colleagues on several congressional committees have tried to make a huge deal of the fact that, last November, Sessions did happen to be at the same reception as the Russian Ambassador.   But, to paraphrase the great Forrest Gump, Ted Lieu is as Ted Lieu does.  And that’s all I got to say about that.
  • One must be careful how one criticizes anything having to do with the Clintons if one wishes to remain healthy – Campaign workers on both the Bernie Sander and Hillary Clinton campaigns claimed on Friday they were sexually harassed by campaign officials, and were disillusioned with the fact that neither campaign appropriately addressed their situations.  But, the Clinton campaign worker, obviously in fear for her safety, hastily adds, “When I criticize the Hillary campaign, I am not criticizing her.”  Good catch there.  You should be ok, for now.

Just another day in leftwing lunacy America.

That is all.

CNN’s Dog-Whistling Is Working According To Plan

Today’s Campaign Update 

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

  • A state senator in Missouri named Maria Chappell-Nadal – a Democrat, of course – issued a tweet on Thursday in which she said “I hope Trump is assassinated!”  She left the tweet up for several hours before finally deleting it after she had begun to receive calls for her resignation from Republicans and Democrats (shocking, I know, that there are still a few Democrats alive who will actually condemn overt calls to assassinate a president) alike.
  • Or perhaps she decided to delete the tweet after she got her call from the Secret Service, which confirmed to media outlets that it is investigating the threat.
  • Ms. Nadal later issued a fake apology in which she took the juvenile position that she was sorry she got caught:  “I posted something on my personal Facebook and I should not have done that, and for that I am sorry for that,” Chapelle-Nadal told St. Louis television station KMOV. “But I am not going to shy away from what caused that anger at all, I’m not going to shy away from that.”  That’s right:  the senator is such a rank dimwit that she doesn’t even know which social media site she is using to issue her hate speech at any given hour of the day.
  • It should surprise no one that we now have radical leftwing Democrat elected officials joining the Kathy Griffins and Snoop Doggs of the world in overtly calling for the president’s assassination.  After all, this is exactly what the fake news media, led by the open seditionists at CNN, have been dog-whistling to readers and viewers since last November.  When you have a coordinated effort by the national Democrat Party and 95% of the national news media to de-humanize a sitting president in the eyes of the public for the express purpose of bringing down his presidency, that is a virtue-signal that killing him is ok.  After all, if President Trump is no different than Hitler – an assertion we see made on CNN or MSNBC every day of the week – well, then, who wouldn’t kill Hitler?
  • Make no mistake about it, that is the goal of this coordinated effort by the Democrats and their fake media agents.  Senator Nadal proves the campaign is working.
  • And speaking of the nitwits at CNN… – Just when you thought CNN could not become any more absurd, fake news host Wolf Blitzer suggested on live national (sort of) television on Thursday that the Muslim terrorist who killed 13 in Barcelona by driving his van down a tourist-filled street might be “a copycat version of what happened in Charlottesville, Virginia.”  No really, he really said that – you just can’t make this stuff up.
  • Seriously, do these people at CNN just read stuff off their teleprompter and never absorb any of what they actually say?  How many times in the past two years has the world borne witness to incidents in which many innocent people have been killed by Muslim terrorists driving a van, a heavy truck or a passenger car into a crowd of tourists?  More to the question at hand, how many days must Wolf Blitzer spend fake-reporting on such atrocities before he comes to understand that this a common strategy being employed by Muslim terrorists?  Is he actually a sentient human being, or is Wolf Blitzer just a computer-generated hologram?  I seriously wonder if CNN has a corporate rule that any applicant for an on-camera job must not possess an IQ above that of the average parkeet.
  • Speaking of idiot on-air fake talent at CNN, Jake Tapper issued a series of tweets yesterday in which he recounted an incident last Saturday in Charlottesville in which a news reporter was violently assaulted by leftwing Antifa thugs.  When dozens of his Twitter followers pointed out that Mr. Tapper had just proved President Trump was correct to point out and condemn the violence that had occurred among both factions of protesters, Tapper of course did not respond.  Because, this is CNN, after all, and he might get fired if he acknowledged that truth.

Just another day in dog-whistling CNN America.

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

Today’s Campaign Update 

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

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

Just another day in Everybody Chill Out, Please America.

Van Jones Video Makes Fake News CNN “The Story”

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

It’s never a good things for any news outlet when it becomes “the story,” but that’s what has happened to the Fake News-purveying CNN.  It couldn’t happen to a nicer bunch of people.

  • It’s official:  The Fake News Network, aka CNN, has now become “The Story.”  The Story is no longer Russia Collusion, or  Obstruction, or Obamacare Repeal and Replace, or Tax Reform, or whatever President Donald Trump happened to tweet out this morning.  CNN is now The Story, in the wake of the release of a second expository video from James O’Keefe’s Project Veritas, in which communist former Obama advisor and long-time CNN contributor Van Jones calls the Fake News Network’s focus on Russia Collusion “A big nothing burger.”  That’s all he said in the very brief clip, but it’s all he needed to say.
  • Suddenly, nobody is talking about Russia or Obstruction anymore, and everyone is talking about CNN and Project Veritas.  The fake journalists at CNN spent more time defending themselves and their Fake News Network on Wednesday than they did attempting to slander the POTUS.  Yes, much of the media noise about CNN/Veritas was slamming Veritas and defending CNN, but that misses the point.  The point is that this was The Story that everyone in the fake national news media was focused on.  Given that O’Keefe says he plans to release another new CNN-exposing video every day for the rest of this week, it’s a safe bet that this will continue to be the case.
  • The bad news for the rest of the fake news media is that CNN is not the only fake news outlet getting such attention. Legendary Watergate reporter Bob Woodward, in remarks he gave following a screen of “All The President’s Men” in New York City, chastised the fake journalists at the NYTimes and other big media outlets for engaging in the same sort of unmitigated bias that characterizes CNN’s 24 hours of fake journalism every day.  Sharyl Attkisson, another fantastic real journalist who was fired by CBS News for actually investigating the Obama-era abuse of the IRS, told a Fox News panel that the national news media gives the public a “false sense of reality”, and that many of those posing as journalists on TV and in social media are nothing more than “well-funded actors.”  Ouch.
  • Amidst all of this, CNN is being stalked by AT&T, and rumors abound that CNN CEO Jeff Zucker’s head might be on the chopping block should that buyout take place.
  • Of course, CNN’s on-air fake talent tried desperately to shift the focus, smearing O’Keefe and his “heavily-edited” videos, and laughably claiming that Jones was “taken out of context”.  Wolf Blitzer, who was captured on film sharing wine and snacks with the Clinton staff at the Democrat National Convention, tried to shift focus back to President Trump, claiming that his calling the fake news media “the enemy of the people” back in January is putting fake journalists like him in danger.  *sigh*
  • Predictably, CNN’s ratings continued to crash and burn, with the Tuesday night ratings showing a significant drop from Monday’s.  Fox News continued to increase its renewed dominance of CNN and MSNBC, with its total audience very nearly equaling both of its main competitors combined.
  • Make no mistake about it, CNN is in deep trouble at the moment.  Its reputation is dead to anyone with functioning synapses in their cranial cavity, its leadership is in peril, its ratings are tanking, and it may soon be bought out and have to answer to new overlords.
  • Meanwhile, President Donald Trump held meetings with energy leaders and victims of illegal immigrant crime, hosted the Chicago Cubs at the White House, and continued to press GOP senators for their support for the repeal and replacement of Obamacare, hinting at the end of the day that the senate was about to produce a “big surprise” on the Obamacare issue.

Just another day in fake news media becoming The Story America.

That is all.
