Today’s Campaign Update
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)
Tired of all this #Winning yet? Part I – San Fran Nan provided GOP candidates with they only ad the need to run in their campaigns this fall, promising to raise taxes if the Democrats regain a majority in the House of Representatives and she becomes Speaker once again. Seriously, if Republicans didn’t have Nancy Pelosi, they’d have to invent her. She is their best weapon in this year’s mid-term elections, if they’re smart enough to use her.
Tired of all this #Winning yet? Part II – All that wailing and gnashing of teeth you heard around 7:00 Central Time Tuesday night was emanating from the halls of CNN and MSNBC, where all the mouth-breathers who staff those fake news outlets were crying in their very cheap beers over the fact that Don Blankenship was crashing and burning out in West Virginia. All the fake news people were praying the extremely goofy Blankenship would prevail in his effort to defeat several other candidates to become the Republican nominee to challenge incumbent Democrat Joe Manchin for his senate seat. Blankenship would have been turned by the media into a replay of the Roy Moore fiasco in Alabama last year, so the Republicans did well to give him just 20% of the overall vote. Good riddance.
Tired of all this #Winning yet? Part III – Democrats and their agents in the fake news media all hate President Donald Trump with a passion, but Israelis love him. The City of Jerusalem just chose to name a public square in the President’s honor for keeping his campaign promise to move the U.S. embassy to that city from its current location in Tel Aviv. Keeping your promises might not win you a totally un-deserved Nobel Peace Prize like the one Barack Obama received in 2009, but it will win you real gratitude from real people.
That un-American Obama “legacy” just keeps disappearing. – Speaking of Donald Trump keeping his promises, the President announced on Tuesday that he is ending U.S. participation in the Iran deal to which Barack Obama unilaterally chose to commit this country. In response, the Iranian government responded very predictably, issuing war threats, burning an American flag on the floor if its fake parliament, and staging protests in which the oppressed protesters shouted…wait for it…you know what’s coming, don’t you?…”DEATH TO AMERICA!!!!”
Seriously, can’t the Mullahs teach these people any new chants? This one has become as tiresome as another Pirates of the Caribbean sequel. Do something else, already.
So, one more nail in the coffin of Barack Obama’s incredible shrinking legacy, which as of today is pretty much limited to a few random straggling Obamacare provisions, a handful of regulations that Trump hasn’t gotten around to rescinding yet, and of course all the illegal activity committed by the Obama Justice Department, the FBI and high Obama officials against the Trump Campaign in their tireless efforts to rig the 2016 election in favor of the Pantsuit Princess.
Otherwise, that legacy is as gone as Eric Schneiderman’s reputation, as gone as Jake Tapper’s credibility, as gone as Megyn Kelly’s ratings, as gone as Kathy Griffin’s career, and what a wonderful thing that is for the entire country. All because we elected a President who has worked hard to keep the promises he made during his election campaign. This really isn’t complicated, America. Let’s keep doing it.
Throughout the day on Tuesday, ex-Obama officials took to their twitter accounts to defend the Iran deal, to no avail. Most prominent among those was the execrable Ben Rhodes, who became famous for going around giving interviews after the deal was implemented in which he bragged about how easy it was to lie to the fake news media about the deal and convince all the young, naive reporters that it was actually a great deal for America. Given that, it’s really amazing CNN hasn’t given Rhodes a gigantic contract to become an on-air contributor.
But my favorite came from John Brennan, the former CIA director and guy who has a history of voting for communists:
Today, Donald Trump simultaneously lied about the Iranian nuclear deal, undermined global confidence in US commitments, alienated our closest allies, strengthened Iranian hawks, & gave North Korea more reason to keep its nukes. This madness is a danger to our national security.
— John O. Brennan (@JohnBrennan) May 8, 2018
Within minutes after Brennan issued that tweet, North Korea confirmed that it will be releasing three U.S. prisoners while Secretary of State Mike Pompeo is visiting that country this week.
All of which just proves once again that one of the very best things about the disappearing legacy of Barack Obama is that we no longer have a simpleton like John O. Brennan running the CIA.
Just another day in the Obama legacy is almost gone America.
That is all.
