Today’s Campaign Update
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)
Tired of all this Winning yet? Part I – President Donald got a yuuuuge win out of the U.S. Supreme Court on Tuesday as the Court’s conservative majority – you know, the five justices who have actually bothered to read the U.S. Constitution – upheld his travel ban impacting the citizens of seven terrorist-supporting nations. The 5-4 nature of the decision simply reaffirms the fact that the court’s leftists faction is now nothing more than an adjunct of the radical leftwing’s “resistance,” now willing to ignore decades of clear and unambiguous jurisprudence in their quest to transform the nation. My goodness.
In the wake of the decision, until recently the DNC’s Vice Chairman, Minnesota Rep. Keith Ellison, issued this idiotically dishonest tweet:
The US Supreme Court just ratified Donald Trump’s “total and complete shutdown” of Muslims entry into the United States.

For the record, 92% of the world’s Muslim population is completely unaffected by the travel ban. But, as we all know, Democrats always – ALWAYS – have to lie. It’s apparently in their genes.
Tired of all this Winning yet? Part II – The Supreme Court also handed the “resistance” another kick to the gut in another 5-4 decision, this one overturning a California law that requires church-run pregnancy counseling centers to provide abortion information to their patients. Again, the Court’s four leftists confirmed that they no longer value the freedoms of religion and speech contained in the Bill of Rights.
The preservation by a bare 5-4 majority of these key rights and presidential powers so clearly spelled out in our Constitution and Bill of Rights demonstrates conclusively how much gratitude we all owe to Mitch McConnell and the GOP majority in the U.S. Senate. Regardless of how we feel about these mostly-RINO, establishment Republicans who disappoint us so frequently, their refusal to confirm Obama nominee Merrick Garland to replace the deceased Antonin Scalia in 2016 was a crucial moment in our nation’s history. So thanks, all you squishy senators – you did something truly important. Now you can all go back to disappointing us.
Joe Crowley. Remember that name. Who’s Joe Crowley, you ask? Why, he’s currently the Chairman of the House Democratic Caucus in the U.S. congress, where he has served for many years as the U.S. Representative for New York’s 7th congressional district, which takes in much of Brooklyn, Bronx and Queens. But he won’t be playing those roles much longer.
In fact, he will no longer be the congressman from the 7th district in New York after December 31, because, in a stunning demonstration of just how far to the radical left the Democrat Party is trending, this 20-year incumbent, very powerful congressman got his butt kicked by 18 percent of the vote by a 28 year-old socialist named Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. How big of an “upset” is this? Consider that Crowley was deemed by those who compile what we know as the “conventional wisdom” to be so safe that he had not even drawn a primary challenger in this previous 7 re-election bids.
Crowley had out-raised Ocasio-Cortez by a 10 to 1 margin in the race. He was considered such a powerhouse within the Democrats’ demented caucus in the House that many thought he’d be the guy to replace Nancy Pelosi if she ever decides to give up her grasp on power as Speaker. This was a guy who was going places.
Until last night. This morning, he’s just planning on what he’s going to do after he goes home. No one should be happy about this – as detestable as Crowley no doubt is, the juvenile Ocasio-Cortez, who based her campaign on the elimination of ICE and creation of fully-open borders, is exponentially worse. But hey, that’s just where the entire Democrat Party is moving today.
Meanwhile, while our country’s fake news media is too busy working with their Democrat wards to dummy up another fake scandal to pay attention to anything else, there’s a revolution brewing over in Iran. The streets of Tehran have been filled all week with growing crowds of demonstrators protesting the failing economic conditions that have been brought about by the brutal Islamic regime that has run the country for the past 40 years.
While we have seen similar uprisings in Iran come and go over the past four decades, with the Mullahs always holding onto power, this one seems different, as explained by NPR:
“Anti-government demonstrations driven by economic troubles erupted across the country last December and January. But they didn’t gain traction in Tehran. This week’s demonstrations in the capital were the biggest in years, multiple media outlets have reported.
The prevention of exactly this sort of economic uprising was the main reason why the Mullahs were so desperate to get the incredibly one-sided “deal” they received from Barack Obama and John Kerry. That of course was Obama’s and Kerry’s motivation as well, because they’re both so dimwitted they actually bought into the idiotic notion that Iran could become a stabilizing influence in the Middle East.
Of course, the exact opposite goal is the reason why President Trump recently cancelled U.S. participation in the Iran deal: He knows that the re-implementation of economic sanctions, which is already underway, is likely to hasten the day when an uprising like the one taking place right now ends up deposing the Mullahs for good. Were it not for Obama and Kerry and their injection of hundreds of billions of dollars into the Iranian economy, that day might well have already come.
That’s the truth. That’s the real Obama legacy for the Middle East.
Just another day in all this #Winning never gets old America.
That is all.
