That Time When Teens Eating Tide Pods Didn’t Seem Like Such a Bad Idea After All

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Oh, darn.  And he’s such a nice, nice man. – Bloomberg reports that poor, poor Mark Zuckerberg is feeling “isolated” these days.  He’s feeling under siege, you know, because those mean ol’ people in the fake news media are mounting the fakest of all fake scandals against his company, all because he shared 50 million customers’ data – you know, the Facebook business model – with a company that did work for the  (gasp!) evil Donald Trump campaign!

Hey, everybody, let’s all take a moment to feel so, so sorry for Mark Zuckerberg, the man who has become a mega-multi-billionaire off his business that consists of sharing your “private” data with others for a profit.  And let’s all join the fake news media and Zuckerberg’s peers, like Apple’s Tim Cook and Tesla’s Elon Musk, in pretending we haven’t known that all along, and have been shocked – shocked! I say – to find out about it just since this fake scandal broke.

There.  Don’t you feel better about yourself now for joining all the liberal hypocrites in this pretense?  Good.  Now, let’s move along.

Hey, every parent has been there.  Or at least wanted to be. – The Sacramento Bee reports that a mother in Arizona, one Sharon Dobbins of Phoenix, became so frustrated trying to get her 16 year-old son out of bed to go to church on Easter Sunday that she finally resorted to giving him a good jolt from her taser, which I guess she just keeps around the house for fun.

According to the Sac Bee, “The victim ‘did not complain of any pain,’ according to police, but did have two small bumps on his leg that he said were left by the taser.”

Neither the little wifey nor I ever tased either of our kids out of bed when they were teenagers, but I do have to admit that there were days when the only reason we did not resort to this approach was that we just didn’t happen to keep a taser handy.  Ok, just kidding.  I think.

Can we get them to just go back to eating Tide pods? – The Sac Bee had a big day reporting on teenagers on Monday, also running a report on the latest teen fad, which involves snorting…wait for it…condoms!  Yes, friends, the little geniuses to whom the Democrat Party wants to give the right the vote have a new party game!

This little deal involves snorting a condom up your nostril and then pulling it out the back of your throat.  The goal is to see who can do it without choking, all the while taping it with your cellphone so you can post it on your favorite social media account.  I swear I don’t make this stuff up.

It is very likely that some of those teenagers that CNN has saturated its airwaves with over the last few weeks follow their on-air gun-control diatribes by going out in the evening and snorting a few condoms.  These are the people who CNN and the Democrat Party want to set the tone for our national debate on the 2nd amendment to the Constitution.

Holy cow.

Let’s just hope most of them post their condom-snorting videos on Facebook so that Mark Zuckerberg can make a big profit selling the videos to the highest bidder.  This is a special kind of stupidity that deserves to be preserved for the ages.

Just another day in can we raise the voting age to 35? America.

That is all.

President Trump is Laying the Groundwork for Executive Action on the Border Situation

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

There is just no good reason why any average citizen needs to own g…er…knives? – The murder rate in London surpassed that of New York City for the first time ever in February, as Islamic-driven knife killings continue to grow in the gun-banning metropolis.  As of this writing, no one at CNN had asked David Hogg for his views on London’s pressing need to ban knives.  But it seems to be just a matter of time.

Speaking of the ever-more annoying Mr. Hogg, he’s gonna have some ‘splainin’ to do with his CNN masters next time he goes in for an interview.  That’s because on Sunday he made the mistake of posing for a photo with Javier Manjarres, a Republican congressional candidate who is challenging Democrat incumbent Ted Deutch.

As if the sin of paling around with a – gasp! – Republican wasn’t damning enough in the eyes of everyone at the fakest of all fake news outlets, Hogg’s error was made even more unforgivable by the fact that Manjarres was wearing a t-shirt that depicts President Donald Trump urinating on the CNN logo (see below).  Oh, my, CNN might have to go find itself another gun-banning teenager to exploit.

Headlines we never saw during the Obama years… – The Wall Street Journal reports that the big economic issue facing Iowa and much of the rest of the American midwest is that there are too many jobs and not enough workers to fill them.

According to the Journal:

“It is a problem playing out in many parts of the Midwest, a region with lower unemployment and higher job-opening rates than the rest of the country. Employers, especially in more rural areas, are finding that there are just too few workers. That upends a long-running view in Washington, D.C., and many state capitals, where policy makers often say the unemployed simply lack the skills to get hired.”

Should the pace of economic growth and job creation experienced in the 14 months of the Trump Administration continue for another 14 months, this midwest-based “problem” will inevitably spread to other parts of the country.  This is an almost inevitable outcome as the overall economy approaches full employment.

Of course, there will be exceptions to the rule, isolated pockets of the country where chronic unemployment levels will persist and people will remain addicted to the public dole.  Those pockets of economic under-performance are easy to predict:  They go by names like Chicago, Washington, DC, Baltimore, Detroit, Los Angeles, San Francisco, New Orleans, Philadelphia and other big cities that have been governed by Democrats for decades.  It’s the way Democrat politicians like it to be.

DACA is dead, and NAFTA could be next, if Mexican officials don’t act to halt the caravan of more than 1200 Central American nationals that has been making its way through their country unimpeded over the last few days.  At least, that’s what President Trump said on his Twitter feed yesterday and early this morning, and as we have seen so many times in the past, the President doesn’t just toss stuff like this out there for no good reason.

The tweet storm began on Sunday morning, with these two Presidential messages:

“Border Patrol Agents are not allowed to properly do their job at the Border because of ridiculous liberal (Democrat) laws like Catch & Release. Getting more dangerous. “Caravans” coming. Republicans must go to Nuclear Option to pass tough laws NOW. NO MORE DACA DEAL!”

and..

“Mexico is doing very little, if not NOTHING, at stopping people from flowing into Mexico through their Southern Border, and then into the U.S. They laugh at our dumb immigration laws. They must stop the big drug and people flows, or I will stop their cash cow, NAFTA. NEED WALL!”

Mr. Trump expanded on this theme with three more tweets this morning, concluding with:

“DACA is dead because the Democrats didn’t care or act, and now everyone wants to get onto the DACA bandwagon… No longer works. Must build Wall and secure our borders with proper Border legislation. Democrats want No Borders, hence drugs and crime!”

So, after 7 months of publicly holding out hope that the cynical Democrats might want to make a deal in which DACA gets extended in exchange for wall funding and other immigration reforms, the President has finally figured out that the Dems never had any intention of making any such deal, preferring instead to keep the DACA kids in limbo so they can exploit the issue in the November midterm elections.  Ok, he knew that all along, but it’s good to see him abandoning all pretense, and calling things as they really are.

The problem the President has here is that there is literally no reason at all to expect the Senate Republicans to “go nuclear” or even lift a finger at all in an effort to change the immigration laws.  At least half of the GOP caucus in the senate favors chain migration and the insane “diversity lottery” system in their eagerness to attract campaign money from the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.

Sadly, it is up to the President alone to stop the ongoing invasion coming across our southern border.  If the President wants to build his long-promised wall, he’ll have to find a way to get it done using his emergency powers and the defense budget, as we discussed last week.  Expecting Paul Ryan and Mitch McConnell to do anything about it is just a waste of time and energy.

Given the President’s past use of his Twitter feed as a prelude to taking action, we should expect him to take some form of emergency executive action to address the border situation in the coming days.

Just another day in the southern invasion continues and congress doesn’t care America.

That is all.

Mike Murphy Rolls Out Another Example of NeverTrump Nitwittery

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Hey, everybody, Mike Murphy’s organized a new gig for himself, aren’t you excited?  Um, well, who’s this Mike Murphy, you ask? Are you kidding me?  You don’t know who Mike Murphy is?  Wow, where have you been?

Ok, seriously, there isn’t really much reason why you should have any idea who this guy is, unless you make a habit of studying epic failure.  Murphy, a guy who bills himself as “one of the Republican Party’s most successful political media consultants,” is so darn successful that he boasts a list of past clients that include failed 1996 presidential nominee Bob Dole, failed 2008 nominee John McCain, failed 2012 nominee Mitt Romney, and of course, epically failed 2016 GOP nomination candidate JEB!  Yes, that JEB!, the JEB! who wasted well over $150 million one one of the most hilariously awful media campaigns in modern times, the JEB! who began the race as the overwhelming favorite to claim the GOP nomination and ended up having to pull out after the South Carolina primary without having even come close to winning a single contest.

Yes, this is THAT Mike Murphy.  That guy.

This is the Mike Murphy who last August told CNN’s fake interviewer Chris Cillizza that “Post-election Donald Trump will be alone, despised by his own party, a failure rebuked by the nation, and politically neutered even more than he is today.”  Today, 7 months later, Donald Trump has a job-approval rating higher than Barack Obama held at the same point in his first term in office, is supported by about 85% of the GOP voter base, has accomplished more in his first 14 months in office than any modern president and is presiding over a booming economy that is achieving 3% growth quarter after quarter and is nearing full employment.

This Mike Murphy guy will never make a living as a sooth-sayer.  I’d say he should keep his day job if he weren’t such a failure at it.

But Mike Murphy clearly has a talent, and that talent happens to be convincing high-profile Republican political candidates to let him waste millions and millions of their dollars on epically-failed media campaigns.  Just ask Meg Whitman, who let Murphy waste $150 million of her own money on an utterly failed run for California governor in 2010.

So, why am I talking about Mike Murphy this morning?  Because Mr. Murphy has decided that President Trump needs to face a GOP opponent in the 2020 Republican nomination contest, and he is just the guy to manage the campaign to mount that challenge.  To that end, the self-absorbed clown has formed what he is calling the “NeverTrump War Room,” from which he will presumably raise a bunch of money from the same class of big-money idiots who funded his JEB! brainchild, and which he will use to attract some political juggernaut – like Arizona Senator Jeff Flake and his 18% constituent job approval rating – to challenge the incumbent President in his pursuit of a second term.

Bragging that “after 30 years in politics I’ve seen how fast support can crumble,” – a personal talent to which Dole, McCain, Romney, Whitman and JEB! can certainly attest – Murphy speculates that all the agonisties currently tormenting the President will turn out to be just too much for rank and file Republicans to take come 2020, and they will be pining for a new candidate to lead them out of the low-tax, 3% economic growth and 3% unemployment “wilderness” that NeverTrump morons so detest.

When that happens, Mike Murphy plans to be right there waiting, with a NeverTrump war chest overflowing with money to be wasted on some famous white guy who sounds suspiciously like…wait for it…oh, you have to wait for this one…MITT ROMNEY!  I’m not kidding – here it is in Murphy’s own words from his Politico column of March 28:

“Who could run? It’s far too early to name names, but for a tested, highly competent potential contender with immaculate conservative credentials, I’d keep an eye on political developments in Utah.”

But hey, if the GOP voter base turns out to not exactly be pining for a rerun of Romney’s stunningly inept campaign of 2012, Murphy has another model for the perfect candidate, who unsurprisingly sounds exactly like Sen. Flake, who became so detested by voters in his home state he decided to not even seek re-election:

“Another potential archetype would be a candidate promising a return to conservative ideological purity after three big-spending years of braying populism. There is no shortage of potential “real conservatives”—many promising generational change as well—itching to run for president.”

It is this special kind of “genius” – the kind that can continue to milk lame-brained wealthy Republican donors of millions and millions of dollars with promises of this kind of epic failure-in-the-making – that sets Mike Murphy apart from his competitors.  You know, those competitors who actually like to win elections from time to time.

So, will Murphy succeed in his goal to raise another couple hundred million to waste on yet another epic failure in 2020?  The smart money says there is plenty of stupid money out there to allow Murphy to extend his epic losing streak.

The smart money also says that President Trump isn’t real concerned about the NeverTrump War Room.  In fact, he probably welcomes it, since it shows his enemies in the Republican Party still have no clue whatsoever.

Just another day in NeverTrump nitwittery America.

That is all.

Hillary Clinton: That Party Guest Who Just Won’t Shut Up and Leave

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

It’s not because you’re a woman.  It’s because you’re so incredibly tiresome. – The Pantsuit Princess, dressed in her favorite Dr. Evil attire, complained to an audience that she is tired of being told by fellow Democrats to stop running around the world blaming everyone but herself for her loss in the 2016 election.  The Fainting Felon whined that “no one ever told a man (who’d lost a presidential election) to go away.”  She then cited Al Gore, John Kerry, John McCain and Mitt Romney as examples.

Of course, as with literally every other word that escapes from the Coughing Crook’s lips in public, this latest in such a long, long list of complaints is an outright lie.  Of the four examples she cites, there were all manner of Democrats at the time telling the incessantly complaining and lying Al Gore and John Kerry to just go away and shut up already after they, too, went around the country whining about how mean ol’ George W. Bush had done all sorts of things to “steal” the 2000 and 2004 elections from them.  Gore was especially resented by Democrats who just wanted to move on for his refusal to just. shut. UP. before he decided to shift gears and go get rich from mounting his global warming scam.

As for McCain and Romney, well, they’re Republicans (ok, well, McCain is sort of a Republican, anyway), and when Republicans lose a presidential election, they accept their defeat and move on, so yes, no one had to tell them to go away.  Even Richard Nixon, after having the 1960 election stolen from him by John F. Kennedy’s mob associates, decided to just accept the result and stay quiet about it for the good of the country.

But of course, with the Grasping Grifter, the good of the country never comes to mind.  It’s all about her.  Everything is and always has been all about her.

In the end, Hillary is like that drunk guy at the party who just won’t go home, still sitting on your sofa at 3:00 in the morning asking for another beer and telling annoying stories you’ve heard a thousand times before.  You know, the guy you have to escort out your front door and shove into the Uber you called for him so he won’t kill himself trying to drive home.  That guy.

Just as that guy never goes away voluntarily, no one should expect the Whining Wino’s worldwide whining tour to end anytime soon.

If you want to own a Tesla, you probably better go get one soon. – The shaky electric car maker Tesla announced on Friday that it is having to recall almost half of the automobiles it has manufactured in its entire history due to corroding bolts that threaten the loss of power steering.

This new recall of more than 123,000 of the company’s Model S sedans comes amid ongoing issues that have prevented the production of more than a handful of the company’s new, more compact Model 3 sedans, and CEO Elon Musk’s struggles to raise more money to keep his chronically unprofitable company afloat.  This is a company whose business model only “works” when it is propped up by massive taxpayer subsidies and a stellar PR campaign consisting of a never-ending series of bold promises for the future.  Even with billions of dollars worth of those subsidies, Tesla has only managed to turn a “profit” in two calendar quarters during its entire existence, and the constant churning of unfulfilled promises suffers from the law of diminishing returns over time.

Tesla’s stock has lost 1/3rd of its value in recent weeks, and that selloff promises to continue next week after the latest recall announcement, which came after markets closed.  Barring an influx of new, highly-risky private equity, the company seems on the verge of running out of cash in the near future, and may have to resort to issuing a round of new stock, which would diminish the value of current shares even further.

Musk has repeatedly proven to be very adept at finding the money necessary to keep his company afloat in the near term, and will likely find a way to keep it going this time as well.  But in the longer term, Tesla sure looks like a proverbial house of cards that appears destined to at some point collapse under the weight of its fundamental inability to produce cars at a competitive price.  You know, like every other auto maker on the face of the earth must do in order to survive.

Just another day in the Pantsuit Princes won’t go away willingly America.

Jeff Sessions Don’t Need No Stinking Second Special Counsel

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Three weeks ago, on March 8, I pointed out that Attorney General Jeff Sessions had dropped a little bomb into the mix, one that hardly anyone in the fake news media managed to notice, when he told Fox News’s Shannon Bream that:

“I have appointed a person outside of Washington, many years in the Department of Justice (DOJ), to look at all the allegations that the House Judiciary Committee members sent to us; and we’re conducting that investigation.” 

At that time, the Attorney General gave no indication as to the identity of this “person outside of Washington,” but it was reasonable to conclude that said person was investigating the myriad very credible allegations that various members of the anti-Trump cabal within the FBI and Department of Justice had violated the FISA law during and after the 2016 presidential campaign.

Lo and behold, in the midst of a growing cacophony of demands by Republican members of congress that Sessions appoint a second special counsel to investigate the FISA abuse scandal, on Thursday Sessions sent a letter to congress in which he unveiled the name of that non-Washington person:  U.S. Attorney John W. Huber, who is based in Salt Lake City, Utah.

Even better, the AG reminded congress that, in a letter way back last November 13, Assistant AG Stephen Boyd had already notified the legislative branch that Mr. Huber’s investigation was well underway:

Uh, well, all the Republicans in congress apparently failed to read that one.  No one in the fake news media gave it any notice, either.  But there it is, in black and white.

Oh, but it gets even better.  In his letter yesterday, Sessions also let it be known that Huber has been conducting his investigation in cooperation with…wait for it…Inspector General Michael Horowitz.  Another bomb dropped.

Hey, it gets even better than that.  It is probably not a coincidence that the Sessions letter to congress comes on the same day that fired ex-Deputy FBI Director and key anti-Trump cabal member Andrew McCabe created a legal defense fund for himself.   (Let’s all note the irony of a career federal employee who has somehow cobbled together a net worth of more than $11 million while making a government salary asking the little people to pay his high-powered lawyers for him.)

Nor is it likely a coincidence that McCabe’s move comes on the day after a Minneapolis FBI agent, Terry Albury, was indicted for – guess what? – criminal leaking to the news media, the same crime McCabe committed and lied at least four times about to the Inspector General and the Office of Professional Responsibility.  But of course, most of the fake news media completely missed this part of the story, and all the connections detailed above.

Instead, the Usual Suspects in America’s grand pantheon of fake media outlets are portraying the Thursday Sessions letter to congress as if Sessions is basically refusing to do anything, complete with quotes from angry Republicans who also aren’t connecting these dots condemning the AG for refusing to appoint another Special Counsel.

The reality, as is generally the case with our fake news media, is exactly the opposite.  As I pointed out when Sessions dropped his bomb on March 8, you have to look at all of this from the AG’s point of view.  After all, he has an ongoing investigation that has been underway for months, since at least last November and probably well before then.  Why would he interrupt all that work that’s already been done by appointing some new guy to come in, take weeks or months to get organized, and then go over all the same ground that’s already been covered by Mr. Huber and his staff, working as they are in conjunction with IG Horowitz and his staff of 470 people?

Given the manner in which the law has been abused against Republicans over the years, Sessions most likely has a proper disdain for the special counsel law in general, and is reluctant to use it unless it becomes absolutely necessary.  Robert Mueller’s conduct in his assignment thus far has only given thinking Americans much more cause to regard the law as the American Prosecutorial Abuse Act that it is.  Why create another monster using that law when you already have an investigation that has been underway for months, one that may very well already have a grand jury convened and be preparing to issue indictments when the IG’s report from his own investigation is made public?

If you want to politicize the process – as Rod Rosenstein did – then you appoint a Special Counsel and let him spend months and years abusing people’s rights in the pursuit of an array of irrelevant process crimes and indictments of foreign nationals who will never be brought to trial.  But if you want to bring people to justice for real crimes against this country, AG Sessions obviously believes the best way to do it is within the confines and processes of the justice system as it was set up in the U.S. constitution.

Some are speculating that what Sessions really has Huber and Horowitz doing is laying the groundwork for the appointment of a second special counsel after the Horowitz report has been released.  I don’t agree with that, for the reasons laid out above.  Working together, Huber and Horowitz have every power possessed by a special counsel:  Given that, why would the AG reinvent the wheel just at the cusp of issuing indictments and perp-walking the wrongdoers?  Makes no sense to me.

What does make logical sense is that Sessions believes his Justice Department is capable of actually doing its mandated job.  It’s sort of amazing that people who call themselves conservatives object to that approach.

Just another day in Jeff Sessions don’t need no stinking second special counsel America.

That is all.

Why Stormy Daniels Just Doesn’t Matter

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Tired of all this Winning yet? – ABC found out on Wednesday night that maybe being just another media mouthpiece for the Democrat Party isn’t such a great deal after all.  The reboot of a Donald Trump-loving Roseanne scored the highest ratings for any network comedy in years, as 18 million Americans tuned in to watch the comedic fireworks.

By comparison, this season’s other big network comedy reboot, of NBC’s Trump-hating Will & Grace, debuted to a comparatively paltry audience of 10 million viewers last fall.  This coming fall, we will see if CBS can learn from ABC’s example with its own reboot of Murphy Brown (I actually thought Candice Bergen had died.  Guess not.).  The safe bet is that CBS will have learned nothing, and that Murphy Brown will be the same old, tiresome Republican bashing vehicle it was 30 years ago.

Which is fine because, at the end of the day, who really cares?

Ok, so, several readers have in recent days asked me why I haven’t talked about the whole Stormy Daniels thing, so I guess I ought to address that here.

It is true that I have avoided using any precious space here talking about a porn star and her allegations that she had a torrid love affair with President Trump a dozen years ago.  The reason for that is simple:  It doesn’t matter.

Look, Stormy Daniels is to be pitied – she is a very pathetic public figure who has led the most awful life imaginable to this point – but that doesn’t mean she matters in the grand scheme of things.  What she has been for the last month or so is a very convenient excuse for the sleaze bags who run CNN and MSNBC to run the same, repeating, titillating photos of a voluptuous woman repeatedly, hour after hour, day after day, week after week, as a means of demeaning the sitting President of the United States and the office he holds.

She is, in a word, convenient.  She is a convenient tool to be used in support of the media narrative that Donald Trump is not fit to hold the office he currently holds, and once her utility has run its course with the cynical creeps who run the nation’s fake national news media outlets, she will be dropped like a hot potato by her current media facilitators.

There are several reasons why she doesn’t matter:

  • First, name one person you know who voted for Donald Trump in 2016 because they thought Trump was a choir boy.  Go ahead, I’ll wait…Ok, can’t do it, right? Right.  That’s my point.  Nobody – and I do mean NOBODY – voted for Trump because he had a great history of marital fidelity.  Matter of fact, everybody who voted for Trump did so in spite of the fact that he had gone through two divorces and had likely cheated on his current wife. These facts of his life were well known, and 63 million Trump voters decided they just do not care.
  • Second, the Democrats and fake journalists using Stormy Daniels to go after Trump have zero moral authority to do so.  These are, by and large, the very same fake journalists and Democrats who spent Bill Clinton’s entire second term trying to convince the public that oral sex is not sex, and a sitting President banging a 23 year-old intern in the Oval Office just did not matter.  Sorry guys, the whole “Presidents should be as pure as the driven snow” ship has sailed, and you’re the ones who hoisted the mainsail on that one.
  • Third, this is all old stuff.  Again, the alleged affair Ms. Daniels talks about supposedly took place a full decade before Trump even announced his presidential candidacy.  If we weren’t supposed to be concerned about a sitting President conducting affairs in the Oval Office, why in the world should we be worried about a relationship between two consenting adults that happened during the George W. Bush Administration?
  • Fourth, please don’t give me any feminist crap, ok?  Again, we’re talking about what is an alleged affair between two consenting adults.  Bill Clinton was credibly accused of outright rape by two different women – Juanita Broderick and Kathleen Willey – and the reaction of the feminist crowd was to vilify the women, not the dominant male who was abusing them.  No one is accusing Trump of doing anything the women involved did not agree to do.

So, sorry all you liberal hypocrites, but this is just a non-issue, a media obsession that is doing no harm at all to President Trump, as evidenced by his job approval numbers, which have held steady throughout this media-generated non-scandal.

Stormy Daniels is a sad, pathetic figure who just doesn’t matter.  And I won’t be talking about her again, so don’t bother to ask.  Thanks.

Just another day in Stormy Daniels doesn’t matter America.

That is all.

Tuesday Was a Really Bad Day for Gun-Banning Liberals

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Tired of all this Winning yet? – Former leftwing Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens – otherwise known as Nixon’s Folly – suggested in a NYTimes op-ed on Tuesday that the right to keep and bear arms is a “relic of the 18th century” and that the time has come to repeal the 2nd Amendment to the Constitution.  Liberals all over America who have spent the last month claiming in their anti-gun frenzy since the school shootings in Parkland, Florida are not about repealing the 2nd Amendment nodded in agreement as they read Stevens’ remarks.

Stevens’ comments are wholly un-helpful to either side in the debate over guns, since the reality on the ground is that it is simply not possible to put together the 2/3rds majorities in both houses of congress and 3/4ths of the 50 states that would be required to achieve the repeal of a constitutional amendment.  But then, few things Stevens has done in his entire adult life have been helpful to this country.

Washington Post writer Aaron Blake thinks Stevens’ op-ed was most un-helpful to Democrats, calling it “supremely un-helpful”, and saying that “One of the biggest threats to the recovery of the Democratic Party these days is overreach.”  Well, hell, when has the Democrat Party ever not over-reached?  Hard to remember, but I’m sure there must have been some past example.  And on the gun debate, the Party’s obvious desire has always been to ultimately disarm the public.  At least Stevens was being honest about it, in direct contrast to Democrat politicians.

But Blake’s piece gets even better:  “The [Stevens op-ed] might as well be considered an in-kind contribution to the National Rifle Association, to Republicans’ efforts to keep the House and Senate in 2018, and to President Trump’s 2020 reelection bid. In one fell swoop, Stevens has lent credence to the talking point that the left really just wants to get rid of gun ownership and reasserted the need for gun-rights supporters to prevent his ilk from ever being appointed again (with the most obvious answer being: Vote Republican).”  Blah-blah-blah, talkingpoint, talkingpoint, talkingpoint.  Ok, it really didn’t get better after all.

So, ex-justice Stevens turns out to be an equal-opportunity irritant:  he’s managed to tick off everyone on both sides of the gun debate.  It seems pretty clear he’d do best to just slink back off into the obscurity in which he’s been living since retiring his Supreme Court seat and leave the country to deal with the issue without his “help”.

Speaking of wholly un-helpful liberals who’d do best to remain in obscurity, former President Jimmy Carter was also in the news on Tuesday.  In an interview with USA Today, Carter called President Donald Trump’s decision to bring in John Bolton as his new National Security Advisor a “disaster for our country.”  And hey, Jimmy Carter is a guy who knows disasters for our country, having created so many of them himself over the last 42 years.

No one has any idea why Carter chose now to reappear on the public stage after a long period of relative quiet, but the one-term presidential failure is probably sitting there looking at all the septuagenarians and octogenarians lining up to run for the Democrat nomination in 2020 thinking, “shoot, I’m only 93, why not me?”

If you’re keeping score at home, Carter’s outburst now leaves the hapless Democrat Party with the current roster of prominent spokesmen:

  • Nation of Islam bigot Louis Farrakhan;
  • 93 year-old ex-President Jimmy Carter;
  • 18 year-old high school demagogue David Hogg;
  • 78 year-old budding pugilist Joe Biden;
  • Fake Indian Senator Elizabeth Warren;
  • Communist Senator Bernie Sanders.

This is not a lineup destined for the political dominance the Democrats desire.

Hey, about those “in-kind contributions” to the NRA that Aaron Blake talked about… – All the furor over gun control has had a very predictable result over at the NRA:  the organization is raising tons of new money.  The Washington Free Beacon reports that the NRA PAC’s collections in February came in at 300 percent above its collections in January.  No doubt March’s contributions to the organization will be even higher.

This money is not coming in from a handful of large contributors, either:  Fully 88 percent of the funds came in from individuals giving less than $200 each.  That’s a lot of folks.  Do the math.

Bottom line, Tuesday was a really, really bad day for Democrats on the issue of gun confiscation.

Just another day in Democrats want to take your guns America.

It’s Come to This: Democrats Oppose a Question About Citizenship

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Tired of all this Winning yet? – The Dow closed up 669 points on Monday because traders figured out that – guess what? – there’s not going to be a trade war after all.  Turns out that – for the 10,000th time, dammit – President Trump is not the raging idiot the fake news media portrays him to be, and just as importantly, the Chinese aren’t morons, either.  Both sides realize a trade war is not any good for anyone, and are busily engaged in getting to a renegotiated trade equation with which both nations can live.

As I and many others have continued to point out, President Trump is using the threat of these heavy tariffs as tools for leverage in negotiations.  If everyone can hold off having a nervous breakdown for a few more weeks, we will wake up one morning and find that our country has landed in a much more advantageous trading position with China, Japan and other nations.

Unbridled hubris in action. – Speaking to an audience in Japan, Barack Hussein Obama said he wants to “create a hundred or a thousand or a million young Barack Obamas or Michelle Obamas.”  Think of the massive ego it takes to have doing that as your life’s vision.  Then think of the level of damage a million little Obamas could wreak on our society.  Ok, wait – don’t do that.  You’ll never sleep again.

Is Paul Ryan planning to resign?  After that Omnibus bill, would anybody really care? – Congressman Paul Amodei (R-NV) told reporters on Monday that rumors swirling around the nation’s capital have House Speaker Paul Ryan resigning the speaker’s job “in the next 30-60 days.”  While that wouldn’t come as a complete shock, everyone should take a “believe it when we see it” attitude towards a rumor being repeated by a back bench congressman who admits to having no inside information about the situation.  The rumor mill never stops running on Capitol Hill, and we’ve seen such rumors about Ryan before.

This is only controversial among Democrats who love those illegal voters. – Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross announced that the Census Bureau will be adding a new question to the 2020 census forms:  “Are you a U.S. citizen?”  Democrats and leftwing activists, of course, will be tossing hissy fits of rage about adding this simple and very useful question onto the form.

Right on cue, Kristen Clarke, president and executive director of the Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights Under Law, told some fake reporter at CNN that “This is an arbitrary and untested decision that all but guarantees that the Census will not produce a full and accurate count of the population as the constitution requires.” The execrable California Attorney General Xavier Becerra accused Ross and the Administration of  trying to “hijack the 2020 census for political purposes.”

The reasons for adding this question back onto the census form are numerous:  1) to give a sovereign nation an accurate count of the number of actual citizens who reside within its newly-enforced borders; 2) to give a sovereign nation an accurate estimate of the real number of illegal aliens who reside within its borders; and 3) to form an accurate count of citizens in order to properly draw congressional districts.

As Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach told Breitbart news:

“Right now, congressional districts are drawn up simply based on the number of warm bodies in each district. Not only are legal aliens counted, but illegal aliens are counted too. As a result, citizens in a district with lots of illegal aliens have more voting power than citizens in districts with few illegal aliens.

Think of it this way. There are about 710,000 people in each congressional district. But, if half of the district is made up of illegal aliens, then there are only 355,000 citizens in the district. The value of each citizen’s vote in such a district is twice as high.”

Of course, Democrats all over the country work very hard every election cycle to find ways to enable illegal non-citizens to vote, because they’ll pretty much always vote Democrat.  Democrats also know than an accurate count of the number of illegals currently in the country is going to be a very, very big number, much bigger than the “11 million” they’ve been tossing around by rote for more than a decade.  They know that revealing an accurate estimate of the magnitude of the illegal population will shock many citizens, providing added momentum to the Trump Administration’s ongoing efforts to enforce the border.

Never, never forget this key fact:  Democrats favor flooding the nation with illegal immigrants because they view those illegal immigrants as a future voter bloc.  Once you accept that simple reality, their seemingly irrational opposition to something as simple as a citizenship question on the census form makes perfect sense.

Just another day in Democrats undermining the very idea of America.

That is all.

It Was a Big Fake News Weekend for America’s Fake News Media

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Tired of all this Winning yet? – Three new polls were released this past week showing that, despite the ongoing anti-Republican onslaught by the fake news media, the generic congressional preference measure leading into the mid-term elections continues to narrow.  On Sunday, Fox News released its new Opinion Dynamics poll, which shows the measure narrowing from a 15 percent Democrat advantage in November to just 5 percent today.  Marist also released its latest survey, which also pegs the Democrat edge at 5 percent.  A couple of days earlier, Reuters/Ipsos said its newest data shows the Democrat lead down to just 3 percent.

Make no mistake about it:  The Democrats do currently have a real advantage in voter enthusiasm, and we see evidence of that every day.  That edge is likely higher today than it was a week ago in the wake of the GOP congress’s passage of that horrific Omnibus bill on Friday.  But more than 6 months remain until Election Day, so President Donald Trump and the GOP have plenty of time to create some voter enthusiasm on their side as well.

President Trump has repeatedly proven himself to be capable of doing that.  The rest of the GOP?  Not so much.  Still, if we are still seeing congressional preference polls with such narrow margins come November, Democrats will find themselves disappointed yet again when the vote counts start coming in.

Yeah, so, who’s counting? – Speaking of Democrat voter drive opportunities, the “March for our Lives” rallies took place on Saturday, and the fake news media did all it could to glorify all who took part in them, and vilify all who did not.  Because, after all, that’s what today’s fake journalists get paid to do.

Immediately after the rally in Washington, D.C. had concluded, fake news media outlets breathlessly reported the attendance to have been as high as 800,000, which, if accurate, would have made it the largest such rally in D.C. history.  Organizers of the event had been a little more conservative in their estimates of the crowd size, pegging it more in the range of 500,000 to 600,000, which would still be a record for those who are keeping score at home.

Unfortunately for everyone, an independent, non-political firm out of Virginia begs to differ with those estimates.  Digital Design & Imaging Service, which uses flyover imaging of such crowds as the basis for forming its calculations, told CBS News that the turnout for the event was more in the range of 200,000 at its early-afternoon peak.

That’s still a big bunch of people, and wasn’t it just great seeing all those teenagers exercising their constitutionally-guaranteed freedom to protest against…um….well, ok, they were protesting against their constitutionally-guaranteed freedoms.

Meanwhile, Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel, whose gross incompetence and shameful grasping for money led directly to the tragic school killings that germinated Saturday’s protest marches, still has a job.  As always seems to be the case when abject failures by leftwing government officials lead to tragedy, no one who was really responsible is being held accountable.  The fact that Israel still has his job more than a month after the atrocity that his negligence caused is an insult to every American.

Facebook is losing favor with the public, according to opinion polls in the U.S. and Germany published over the weekend.  The only question I have is, why?

Of all the fake scandals made up by our fake news media hacks at CNN and elsewhere, this ongoing attack on Facebook may well be the fakest of them all.  There is literally nothing new in what Facebook is being accused of having done in its unethical sharing of user data with the Cambridge Analytica firm.  Nothing.  Not one damn thing.

Facebook has been unethically sharing its user data with all manner of firms and political campaigns pretty much since its inception.  Numerous former Obama campaign officials have now publicly stated that they had exactly the same access to your Facebook data during the 2008 and 2012 campaigns.  The fake media knew about this, even reported on it, and there was no scandal about it.

The only difference today is that Cambridge Analytica temporarily did work for the Trump Campaign, an unforgivable act of evil in the collective hive mind of the fake journalist fake profession.  Thus, Facebook, whose own evil minions worked as hard as they could possibly work to tilt the 2016 election in favor of Hillary Rotten Clinton, has suddenly become the fake media’s favorite whipping boy.

The truth about this fake scandal is that, had Cambridge Analytica done work for the Clinton Campaign, none of you would have ever heard of them.  There is no scandal here, there is only fake news at its very worst.  Far be it from me to want to defend the sleazebags who run the Facebook scam, but this episode really has taken the practice of fake news to a whole new level of fakery.

Just another day in fake news America.

Trump Dropped Some Twitter Bombs Sunday Morning

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

While so many Trump supporters have spent the last couple of days tossing tantrums about the President’s decision to sign the horrible Omnibus spending bill, some good things have been happening without getting much notice from the fake news media.

Tired of all this Winning yet? – Just a few days after the mass school shooting in Parkland, Florida, I wrote a piece that laid much of the blame at the feet of an insane Obama-era policy that rewarded school administrators and law enforcement officials for refusing to enforce the law against students who engage in criminal activity.  In the ensuing weeks since, more and more people in the news media have begun to report on the scam.  Better late than never.

This growing attention level has now led to a positive outcome:  The Trump Administration announced on Friday that it will eliminate the Obama policy.  Just one more element of the insane, un-American Obama legacy falls by the wayside.

The fake news media really hasn’t paid much attention to this reality yet – it’s been too busy trying to whip the public into a gun-grabbing frenzy and reporting on a porn startlet – but with his staff moves over the last month, President Donald Trump has basically purged his team of senior advisors of globalists.

  • Senior Economic Advisor Gary Cohn – gone.  Replaced with the Reaganite Larry Kudlow.
  • Secretary of State Rex Tillerson – gone.  Replaced – if he can be confirmed – by CIA Director Mike Pompeo.
  • National Security Advisor H.R. McMaster – gone.  Replaced by John Bolton.

Assuming Pompeo is ultimately confirmed, the Trump Cabinet and team of senior advisors will basically be devoid of the open borders/new world order internationalist influence.  While it is true that Bolton is an interventionist who favors aggressive U.S. military involvement in civil wars all around the world, he is very much on board with the Trump plan to dramatically increase border security.

Bolton also promises to “clean house” once ensconced in the job, eliminating dozens of Obama holdovers and other internationalists who are not loyal to President Trump, according to a report at Foreign Policy on Saturday.  Taking this action will almost certainly eliminate many, if not most of the leaks coming from the White House, some of which have been criminal in nature.

Bottom line, 14 months into his first term, Trump is finally putting together the team of leaders he should have had in the first place.  Again, better late than never.

 

Early this morning, President Trump issued the following two tweets:

These tweets are potentially very important, particularly the last sentence in the first one:  “Build wall through M!”, the “M” standing for “Military.”

The federal budgeting process is very complex and arcane, and one thing to remember in this current situation is that this “Omnibus” spending bill is just that:  A spending bill, not a formal budget.  It is a compilation of suggested spending levels for each executive branch department and the military, along with an array of restrictions that dictate how some, but not all of that money can be spent.

It’s important to also remember in this context that, on December 21, the President took the step of declaring a national human rights emergency related to child-trafficking, a declaration that would allow Mr. Trump broad discretion in taking action to crack down on those who participate in such human rights abuses.  It’s key to note that much such child trafficking involves moving kidnapped children in and out of the United States of America.

A second point to note is that, on Friday, the President notified congress that, in signing the Omnibus, he is accepting the funds under the provisions of the Balanced Budget and Emergency Deficit Control Act of 1985.  This law also gives the President broad discretion in making decisions to refuse to spend funds that have been authorized by congress, as well as allowing him to reallocate spending priorities within the budgets of individual executive branch departments.

Finally, lets also note that, last October, the President declared a national emergency related to opioid abuse.

Now, read the text of that first tweet again, in the context of what is laid out above.  “Building a great border wall, with drugs (poison) and enemy combatants pouring into our Country, is all about National Defense.”  Combine that with “”Build wall through M!” and, it’s not unreasonable to think that Mr. Trump is at least considering the possibility of reallocating some portion of the beefed-up military budget to pay for building the wall along the southern border.

Doing that would of course create a media firestorm, but hell, what else is new?  And such a decision would also inevitably lead to a raft of lawsuits filed by leftwing activist groups before carefully-selected Obama-appointed federal judges, and possibly even a lawsuit from congress challenging the action.  But at the end of the day, such cases would have to go before the Supreme Court, where the President would most likely prevail, given the constitutional separation of powers.

As I’ve repeatedly pointed out, contrary to what the fake news media wants you to think, President Trump doesn’t just belch stuff out onto his twitter feed at random.  His tweets almost always have a purpose.  Often that purpose is to elicit a specific reaction from the fake news media.  Sometimes the purpose is to send up a trial balloon to gauge how the public would respond if he took a specific action.

I think Mr. Trump was doing both with those two tweets:  elicit a specific response from the media, and then gauge the public reaction to the media firestorm before deciding whether to move ahead.

 

Just another day in there really is good news out there if you look for it America.

Congress De-funds a Ghost as Trump Eliminates Another Obama-era Scam

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Tired of all this Winning yet?  Oh, wait…:  Great news, everyone!  The 2234-page atrocity that congress refers to as an omnibus “budget” contains a secret provision nobody read that would defund ACORN!  You remember ACORN, don’t you?  That Obama-supported leftist organization that cobbled together hundreds of thousand of fraudulent votes to help Obama fake-win the 2008 presidential election?  Yeah, that ACORN.

Well, ACORN won’t be getting no federal money anymore, thanks to your intrepid establishment congressional Republicans, who work every day to protect by-God America.  One problem, though:  ACORN hasn’t actually existed since 2009.  D’oh!

Your congressional Republicans:  Only a decade late to the fight.

If you have any shopping to do, today’s a great day to go the mall. – Why?  Because the leftist-organized “March for our Lives” rallies will be taking place all over the country.  So, many of those teenagers who spend their days making a nuisance of themselves at your local shopping center will be busy pretending to know something about guns and gun control at a demonstration somewhere else.  So, go shopping, America – the coast will never be more clear.

You can’t fight AR-15s with pistols! The pistol’s bullets are just too slow!  But kids throwing rocks, on the other hand… – Remember the “pistol bullets are just too slow” line of argument against President Trump’s proposal to protect school children by allowing trained teachers and administrators to carry concealed weapons?  Wasn’t that a special one?  Yeah….good times.

Well, no worries, school administrators in Schuylkill County, PA have the conundrum of protecting their kids all figured out, you betcha.  Just ask Superintendent Dr. David Helsel, who bragged to state lawmakers in Harrisburg on Friday that “Every classroom has been equipped with a five-gallon bucket of river stone. If an armed intruder attempts to gain entrance into any of our classrooms, they will face a classroom full students armed with rocks and they will be stoned.”  Yeah, that’ll work.

I swear I don’t make this stuff up.

She’s so fake, she embarrasses all the other fake journalists. – Of all the legion of fake journalists working in the nation’s capital today, the Washington Post’s dimwitted Jennfer Rubin is probably the fakest of them all.  Upon learning of John Bolton’s appointment as the next National Security Advisor, Rubin issued the following tweet:

But just a year ago, Rubin penned a piece advocating for the appointment of Bolton to become Deputy Secretary of State:  “There are few experienced hands who know how the State Department works today and have a granular understanding as to how it should function. If not Bolton himself, someone very much like him would be ideal in the No. 2 spot at State.”  But it gets even better.

As Warren Henry at the Federalist points out, the reason why Rubin wanted Bolton as the #2 guy at State was so that he would become a logical choice to become …wait for it…wait for it…National Security Advisor!  I kid you not:  “Unless Trump wants to go through the rigmarole of hiring a new face, the inevitable [Michael T.] Flynn replacement is very likely to come from within the administration — the No. 2 person at the state or defense departments or some other player with whom Trump has developed a relationship of trust.”

Thus, it becomes crystal clear that Rubin’s real problem with Bolton is simply that he was appointed by Donald Trump, and at the WaPo, agreeing with the sitting, duly-elected POTUS is simply not tolerated.

Trump continues to disassemble the un-American Obama legacy, brick by disgraceful brick. – The fake news media is reporting that President Trump “banned transgenders from serving in the military” Friday evening.  That’s actually not true.  What he did was implement a new policy – based on the recommendation from Defense Secretary James Mattis – that will ban the ongoing scam in which persons with gender dysphoria have joined the military in order to take advantage of a policy implemented by Barack Hussein Obama that forces the taxpayers to pay for their gender reassignment surgery.

Towards that end, the new policy states that “transgender persons with a history or diagnosis of gender dysphoria — individuals who the policies state may require substantial medical treatment, including medications and surgery — are disqualified from military service except under certain limited circumstances.”  Individuals who have been “stable for 36 consecutive months in their biological sex prior to accession,” and those who “do not require a change of gender” will be exempt from the new policy and allowed to serve.

In other words, the scam – which Obama actively encouraged – of enlisting in one of the armed services for a three-year hitch and spending most of that time undergoing gender-transition surgeries at taxpayer expense es no mas.  On the other hand, trans-gender individuals who truly wish to serve their country honorably remain welcome in the U.S. armed services, as they should be.

For all you enraged SJWs out there, this what is known as good public policy.

Just another day in erasing the disappearing Obama legacy America.

Face it: Establishment Republicans Hate Governing

The Evening Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

So, here’s our reality as of today, with the passage and presidential signing of the disgrace of a fake budget bill:  The GOP “establishment” is actively working to surrender its House majority, so that it can go back to being comfortable again.

Republican squishes like Paul Ryan, Mitch McConnell and the rest of the congressional GOP leadership are only “pretend” conservatives.  They are in their natural habitat when they are able to throw darts at governing Democrats while in Washington while never having to take any real responsibility for actually getting anything done.  They are incredibly brave and confrontational when in that mode, as they were for the 6 years in which they controlled one or both houses of congress while Barack Hussein Obama was President.

In those years, those brave GOP squishes in the house were able to vote 30-odd times to repeal the Obamacare monstrosity, and even the GOP senate managed it a few times.  Once they had a Republican in the White House, though, repealing Obamacare suddenly became a bridge too far, as McConnell could always find a few Republicans like McCain or Collins or Murkowski to kill it in the Senate.

Establishment Rs also love to pretend to be fiscal conservatives, just so long as they’re never required to actually get anything real done to prove it.  When they’re in the minority, they’re the first to run to the nearest microphone to squeal about Democrats leading the nation to financial ruin with their profligate spending.  But squealing is all it ever amounts to  – let them be confronted with a government shutdown as their only avenue for stopping the waste, and they become a pack of surrender monkeys.

Put them in the majority, and it’s even worse.  Now, their only excuse is the senate’s arcane filibuster rule, and its requirement of 60 votes to be overcome.  When that rule is all that stands between them and a government shutdown over funding Democrat spending priorities, again it becomes surrender monkey time.

Governing is simply not a Republican core competency.  Never has been, never will be.  So when they control all the levers of power, you end up with legislative atrocities like the bill the President signed into law today, because they are eager to give the Ds anything they want in order to avoid being blamed for shutting down 14 percent of the government by that nasty ol’ news media.

The bill enacted today represents complete capitulation by the GOP congress.  As what is likely to become the last major legislative action prior to the November midterms, its passage is going to have a terrible dampening effect on GOP voter enthusiasm, likely dooming the Republican Party to the loss of its majority in the house.

The truth is – and it may only be on a sub-conscious level – that is really the outcome that establishment Republicans prefer.  Lose the majority in the house, and the squish Rs can just go back to tossing darts at the Democrats.  So what if it means that the Democrats will get their way and impeach President Trump?  Most establishment Rs never supported the guy in the first place, and are not at all comfortable having to carry his water in the halls of congress.

Besides, they’ll still have the majority in the Senate (probably, anyway), so McConnell can surely muster up enough votes to prevent the President’s removal over there.  And they’ll all get to toss darts at the Democrats for being so irresponsible while it’s all going on, which is just an added bonus.

President Trump should have vetoed the bill, for his and congressional Republicans’ own good.  Shutting down the government with a veto would have been consistent with Trump’s persona, and you could tell at his press conference that he knew this.  Plus, a veto would have forced Ryan and McConnell to actually govern a little bit, against their own will.  They’d have simply had no choice.

But Trump promised during the campaign to rebuild the nation’s military, which had been neglected by his predecessor, and signing this bill ensured that he could keep that promise, even if it likely means he will never get the funding he needs for his also-promised border wall.  In the end, he chose to go with the pleas from Mad Dog Mattis, grab the military funding while he could, and hope to find some leverage point on immigration somewhere down the road.  McConnell and Ryan heaved huge sighs of relief, knowing they wouldn’t have to be bothered with doing any governing in any real way until at least 2019, and possibly never again if the Rs do lose the house.

At the end of the day, we all have to just face it:  Tossing darts at Democrats is really all that establishment Republicans go to Washington to do, because that’s fun, and it’s easy, too.  Governing, now that’s hard, and not fun at all.

That is all.

Will John Bolton Fix the Leaky Valve at the NSC?

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Man, another slow news day – having a hard time finding anything to write about.  Lessee here…

Down goes McMaster!  Down goes McMaster!  Down goes McMaster! – General H.R. McMaster, who has run the leaky valve we call the National Security Council (NSC) for the past 13 months, was finally, at long last given his walking papers on Thursday.  The move comes after the latest in a long series of major, embarrassing leaks that most likely came from either the General or his staff earlier this week.

That leak came when the substance of the President’s call with Vladimir Putin – including Trump’s congratulation on his fake election win, a matter of simple courtesy that was also extended by Barack Obama in 2012 – was leaked to the press, along with briefing notes compiled by the NSC advising Mr. Trump not to offer such congratulations.  The leak, as so many emanating from the NSC before it had been, was designed to embarrass President Trump, and it appears the POTUS had finally had enough.

The White House put out a statement late Wednesday that characterized this leak as “likely illegal” and promised to fire the person or persons responsible for it.  About 17 hours later, H.R. McMaster was starting the process of hunting for another job.  Hey, don’t feel sorry for him – he will no doubt have his pick of gigs at CNN, MSNBC, the Washington Post and the New York Times, fake media outlets that love to reward the hands that feed them.

In a tweet issued to announce the firing, President Trump thanked the 3-star General and said he would “always remain my friend.”  So, obviously, the President wants to create as little controversy as possible around the McMaster ouster.  It will be interesting to see if the White House is ever able to identify anyone else responsible for the leak of the Putin conversation, and if bringing in a new National Security Advisor has the effect of tamping down the leaks going forward.  Because with a “security council” like this, well, who needs it?

To replace McMaster, Trump named Bush-era UN Ambassador and noted neo-con John Bolton, so he’s replacing a liberal globalist Susan Rice fan with a very conservative war hawk who tends to favor U.S. intervention all over the world.  Appearing on Fox News shortly after his hiring had been announced, Bolton joked that, to get the job, “I promised not to start any wars.”  I’m not really sure that’s funny.

Whatever, Bolton will be a huge upgrade if he just doesn’t engage in the habit of leaking classified information to the nearest fake reporter.

Hey, guess which students are very predictably on the cover of the new issue of Time Magazine? – If you said “Parkland students,” you are partially right.  The fully correct answer, of course, is “a handful of Parkland students who are anti-2nd amendment and being manipulated by a bunch of leftwing anti-gun groups,” you are fully correct.

Because, of course, only the brainwashed children who want to take your rights away fit the anti-gun narrative the fake news media and Democrat Party have pushed for the last 50 years.  So tiresome.

Hey, remember those DACA “kids” (average age: 26)? Remember how I told you way back in December that the Democrat Party would never, never, never, ever agree to any sort of deal on their situation because they want to keep that issue alive through election day in November?  Yeah, we had another example of the truth of that overnight.

In the wee hours of the morning, the U.S. Senate – the most useless deliberative body on earth – approved yet another continuing resolution to fund the government, this time through the end of the fiscal year on September 30.  It is an utter, complete, total disgrace of a bill, a budget-busting monstrosity that not only continues funding for every leftwing priority but increases the money for most of them, a total capitulation by the Republicans in which pretty much the only thing that isn’t funded in any real way is increased border security and a border wall.  Thank you, Paul Ryan and Mitch McConnell.

Wait.  The other thing this “compromise” (read: Republican capitulation) bill doesn’t have in it is any sort of “fix” for those poor, poor “Dreamers”.  Golly, nobody could have seen that coming.

The two happiest people in the nation’s capital this morning are San Fran Nan and Chuck Schumer, who are no doubt hung over from all those toasts they were drinking during the night to Ryan, McConnell and the rest of the shameful establishment wing of the GOP.

If you are searching for the reason why Republicans hate Republicans, this bill is pretty much your Holy Grail.

Just another day in establishment Republicans selling out America.

That is all.

The Timing on That ABC Piece About McCabe Investigating Sessions Sure Was Interesting

The Evening Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

So, let’s construct a little timeline…

February 28 – President Trump issues a seemingly nasty tweet that is critical of both Attorney General Jeff Sessions and DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz:

Early March – the fake news media, including ABC, leaps to the defense of Sessions and Horowitz, a reaction to Trump’s tweet that was as predictable as the sun rising in the East.

March 13 – The DOJ Office of Professional Responsibility recommends that Sessions fire former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe.  That recommendation is based on a finding by IG Horowitz, stemming from his 14-month investigation into FBI/DOJ wrongdoing.

March 16 – Sessions fires McCabe late on a Friday evening, just two days before McCabe’s pension was set to kick in, ensuring that the firing would be one of the main topics of conversation on all the Sunday morning fake news programs.

March 17-18 – The fake news media, in obvious coordination with the Democrat Party, hilariously attempts to blame McCabe’s firing initially on President Trump.  Trump, of course, literally had nothing to do with the firing at all, and it quickly becomes apparent the public isn’t buying it.

March 18-19 – The fake news media also slowly begins to wake up to the fact that the firing of McCabe was executed by Sessions and Horowitz, two men they had all spent the first half of March saying very nice things about.  This makes it tough for them to shift their tactic from blaming Trump for McCabe’s firing to blaming Sessions.  But they have to blame someone in the Trump administration for some sort of wrongdoing in the McCabe firing, because that’s what the narrative dictates.  What to do?

March 21 – ABC tries to solve the conundrum with its story alleging that McCabe, almost a year ago, opened a criminal investigation targeting his own boss, Sessions.  By filing this story just a few days after McCabe’s firing, ABC obviously hopes to convey the blatantly false impression that Sessions actually fired McCabe because he was angry at having been investigated by a subordinate.

Sadly, this is how the fake media in our country works.  Nevermind that McCabe was smack in the middle of the abuse of the FISA process, the faking of the investigation into the Clinton email scandal, is alleged to have encouraged his subordinate, Peter Strzok, to falsify his notes from his interview with Mike Flynn in order to entrap Flynn into a trumped-up guilty plea for lying to the FBI, and on and on and on.  The narrative dictates that Donald Trump is the bad guy, and anyone who is on the bad side of Donald Trump is the good guy – it simply must be that way.

Which is why, when Trump issues a tweet critical of Sessions and Horowitz, the fake media rushes to their defense, and when Trump praises the firing of McCabe, the fake media rushes to call Sessions and Horowitz the real crooks.  Watching the fake media go back and forth on these guys is like watching a tennis match from the stands at center court.

But that’s what the anti-Trump narrative dictates, and the narrative must always prevail.  It’s important to remember here that literally no one is exempt from this simple rule.  Just wait to see what a villain Robert Mueller becomes in the fake news media’s eyes when he is finally forced to admit publicly that there was no collusion between the Trump Campaign and Russia.

Good Guys With Guns Got the Job Done on Tuesday. Will the Media Give Them Due Credit?

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Don’t expect CNN to spend any real time covering this one. – A good guy with a gun stopped a school shooting on Tuesday, and the fake news media barely noticed.  A “resource officer” at Great Mills High School in Southern Maryland responded within 60 seconds to reports of a shooter on campus and traded shots with the attacker in an act that likely prevented more killings from taking place.  The shooter ultimately committed suicide, and witnesses called the officer, Deputy Blaine Gaskill, a hero.

It is worth noting that, had the “resource officer” and other Broward County deputies who were quickly on the scene responded in the same way to last month’s mass killings at Parkland High School, it is very likely some of the 17 victims of that shooting would be alive today.  Parkland was a tragedy that was created by an utter, complete failure by government and law enforcement at every level, from the FBI to the cowardly Broward County Sheriff’s department, from the Department of Justice to local school officials.  Everyone failed those kids and teachers who lost their lives to a well-known threat who should have been properly dealt with years before.

The Great Mills incident clearly shows what one law enforcement officer, properly trained and armed, can do to prevent needless loss of life.  It is such a clear and unambiguous lesson that we should expect our fake news media to drop it like a hot potato today, after having given the incident cursory coverage on Tuesday.  Because this is not part of their preferred narrative.

Of course, the fake news outlets have their ready-made excuse for scurrying away from the Great Mills story as fast as their cockroach legs can take them, as the bomber who has been terrorizing the Austin, Texas area was brought down overnight.  The problem they’re going to have – though they’ll find 100 ways around talking about it – is that this is yet another example of good guys with guns getting the job done.

Where the Parkland killings represent the total breakdown of the nation’s law enforcement system, the Austin bomber’s identification and final resolution – he killed himself by exploding a bomb in his car when local police and FBI officers had him pinned down – represent an example of law enforcement getting its job done at all levels.  Even the moribund, beleaguered FBI proved that it still can provide a real public service, at least in isolated incidents, so maybe FBI Director Christopher Wray is starting to get his job of rebuilding the agency and its reputation done.

Throughout all the revelations of massive wrongdoing within the FBI’s senior levels in its Washington, DC headquarters over the last 2 years, defenders of the agency have always been quick to point to “the great men and women” who make up the agency’s rank and file, and continued to characterize the FBI as “the world’s premier law enforcement agency.”  But the truth is that it has been painfully difficult during that time to point to any clear examples of why the public should regard the agency with such high esteem.

Instead, during that same period of time, we have been presented with example after example of massive failures by FBI officials to do their damn jobs in places like Orlando and San Bernardino and New York City and Las Vegas (where we still have been given no believable explanation of why more than 50 people lost their lives) and Parkland.

But Austin appears, at least at the moment, to be different.  It appears to be a case in which the FBI was called in by local law enforcement for help in trying to identify and capture a serial bomber who was proving to be painfully difficult to catch.  It appears to be a case in which the profiling, technology and other methods practiced by the FBI made the difference leading to the ultimate positive resolution of a very vexing matter.  And the suspect, at the time of this writing identified only as a “24 year-old white male,” does not appear to be someone who had been on the FBI’s radar for years prior to his murder spree, as was the case in Orlando, San Bernadino and Parkland.

We’ll find out more as the day goes on, but regardless, the lesson from these two incidents is clear:  good guys (and gals) with guns, when properly trained and properly focused, remain the people’s best line of defense against the nutjobs in our society.

Just don’t expect CNN to be holding any prime time townhalls in which students from Great Mills High or relieved citizens of Austin, Texas or representatives of the NRA get to deliver that message.  Because the preferred narrative must always prevail.

Just another day in good guys with guns protecting America.

That is all.

Media Outraged By Big Tech Data Scam – But Only Because One Finally Benefitted a Republican

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

But they’d all happily vote for Bill Clinton again tomorrow. – A new poll indicates that 53% of Democrats now think it’s wrong to vote for a candidate who has done immoral things in his private life.  *sigh*

This will happen as soon as all those Flying J’s truck stops start selling decaf halfcaf skinny mocha soy lattes with two honeys and a twist of lemon. – NBCnews.com has a piece this morning titled “Why Millenials Should Start Considering Truck Driving.”  Ok, it’s actually good advice, but, well, it’s not exactly the vision Obama filled these young peoples’ heads with for eight long years, is it?  But it turns out our country is now overwhelmed with unemployable social workers, dog groomers, computer coders and Russian feminist literature studies majors, and we’re a little short on people who want to keep our economy moving by driving long-haul trucks for a living.  Go figure.  No one could have possibly seen that coming.

The fake news media finally catches onto the Big Tech data scam – Of course, this only happened when the “improper” use of 50 million Facebook users’ information ended up benefiting a Republican, i.e., the Trump Campaign in 2016.  No one in the fake media gave a rat’s behind when Google set up a satellite office in the Obama White House and Facebook and Twitter eagerly shared all the data there was to share with the Obama campaign during the 2012 election cycle.  But now that some firm that Trump didn’t even use during the general election had access to Facebook’s data that might have benefited the media’s enemy, well, that’s crossing the fake news media’s fake red line.  Because that’s what the fake news media does.

Here’s our reality when dealing with Facebook, Twitter, Google and the other Big Tech websites:  All they really are is data accumulators who are in business to sell their data.  If you provide data to, say, Facebook, Facebook is ultimately going to sell that data to make a profit.  Despite their periodic protests to the contrary, there have been so many examples of Facebook and Twitter doing this that you have to be a hopeless simpleton to actually believe anything you do on any of these platforms will somehow remain private and confidential.

The fake media is treating this latest in a long line of examples as some sort of major event, but the truth is that, had the firm in question here, Cambridge Analytica, been working on behalf of the Clinton Campaign, this would not be a story at all – you’d have never heard of these people.  Facebook and Twitter have been shadow-banning conservative news outlets and users for years with no objection from anyone at CNN or the NYTimes.  Google has almost since its’ first day of existence been biasing its search results in favor of Democrats, and no one at Yahoo News or the Washington Post has uttered a peep about it.

The hilarious part of all of this fake media attention is that it is giving momentum to the efforts in Washington to find some way to heavily regulate these big tech platforms in the future.  While any effort by the federal government to regulate these big tech companies would no doubt end up being a slow-rolling train wreck – because that’s the core competency of federal government regulators – it would be a certain form of justice to see the Facebooks and Googles of the world end up being hoisted up on their own petards.

Hey, at least we got some great Twitter memes out of it (see below) – The Washington Free Beacon reports that U.S. taxpayers are having to foot the bill to the tune of $22 grand for the Pantsuit Princess’s book tour trip to India.  That total amount is the combined cost of Secret Service protection for the Fainting Felon, along with administrative costs incurred by the State Department.  But hey,  why wouldn’t the millions of deplorables who the Coughing Crook insulted during the trip be glad to pay for a trip in which she broke her wrist climbing into a million dollar bathtub and humiliated herself by not being able to even come down a flight of stairs without major assistance?  Good times…good times…

 

Just another day in big tech data scamming America.

Here’s Why Trump is Suddenly Tweeting About Mueller by Name

The Evening Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

So, the fake news media spent most of the past two days focusing on the fact that President Donald Trump, for the first time, issued a series of tweets criticizing Special Counsel Robert Mueller by name over the weekend.  The fake media’s take on this is that the President is nuts, that he just gets upset and for no reason at all blurts stuff like this out on his Twitter feed while drinking Diet Cokes and eating Big Mac’s at 2:00 in the morning.

To understand why that assessment – the conventional wisdom in Washington, DC – is completely, totally, 100% wrong, let’s go back to February 28, and the piece I posted that day explaining why the President had called out both Attorney General Jeff Sessions and DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz in a tweet earlier that same day.

In that piece, I discussed the fact that Mr. Trump really doesn’t just toss inflammatory stuff out onto Twitter for no reason, that there is a long history of there being a method to the seeming (in the media’s eyes) madness.  And I pointed out the likelihood that that particular seeming attack on Sessions and Horowitz’s integrity was in fact designed to elicit the exact response that he ended up getting from the fake news media, which was day after day of defense of both men’s integrity.

Why?  My assumption was that it was because Trump was expecting something big from both men in the coming days.  Specifically, I posited that we were probably going to see the issuance of the IG’s report from his 14 month-long investigation of wrongdoing within the FBI and DOJ during the first week or two of March.  That obviously didn’t happen, but think about what has happened since February 28:

  • First, the Attorney General went to the outlaw state of California and announced that his Justice Department would be withholding funds from and filing suit against the state challenging its clearly unconstitutional “sanctuary state” law;
  • Next, the DOJ Office of Professional Responsibility (OPR) sends Sessions a report recommending the termination of former Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe, a recommendation based on – guess what? – a finding from IG Michael Horowitz;
  • Finally, Sessions makes the decision to fire McCabe, as he should have done.

The media’s instinctive reaction was to go on full attack against Sessions, but then, at some point on Sunday, reality began to set in that they  were going after the same guy they were all defending just two weeks ago, and the feeding frenzy began to fall away.

Now, the President goes after Mueller on Saturday, and all the Democrats with press passes leap to defend the Special Counsel in glowing terms normally reserved for anyone with the last name of Obama.  And by the way, that all takes place right after they also all leapt to the defense of McCabe as being the second coming of Mother Teresa, which will come back to haunt them should McCabe keep his word and start tossing other media favorites – like James Comey – under the bus.

So what do you all think is probably about to happen next?

Well, what is NOT going to happen is Trump firing Mueller.  All the fake reporters would love that, but that has never been in the President’s plans.

What IS likely going to happen is some move by Mueller that is broadly positive for the President.  No idea what that might be, but here are some possibilities:

  • Announcement of indictments of Tony Podesta and others involved in his now-defunct lobbying firm;
  • Announcement of the vacation of the guilty plea by General Mike Flynn;
  • Announcement that the “setting aside” of Mueller’s investigation into potential obstruction of justice made public a few days ago is actually a permanent dropping of that line of inquiry;
  • Announcement that Mueller no longer feels the need to conduct an interview with the President.

Could be one of those things, could be something entirely different.  In any event, this feels like President Trump preparing the playing field for some significant event involving Mueller.  And when it feels that way, that’s what generally happens.

Buckle up.

 

That is all.

Don’t Expect the Democrat Party’s Farrakhan Chickens to Come Home to Roost in November

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Democrats in Action, Part I – A Democrat who sits on the city council in Washington, DC, took to his Facebook account on Sunday to blame a sudden snowstorm on…wait for it…no, really, you have got to wait for this one…the JEWS!  I swear I don’t make this stuff up.

“It’s climate manipulation and D.C. keep talking about ‘we are a resilient city’ and that’s a model based off the Rothschilds controlling the climate to create natural disasters they can pay for to own the cities, man. Be careful,” said council member Trayon White, Sr., who is an actual elected official in our nation’s capital.  The Rothschilds, of course, are a very wealthy European Jewish family.  Mr. White is no doubt a follower of the execrable Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan, which means he’s just your basic mainstream Democrat these days.

White later apologized, sort of, saying that “I did not intend to be Anti-Semitic [sic], and I see I should not have said that after learning from my colleagues,” White said. He added that he was working to “understand the history of comment [sic] made against Jews.”

So, he had to be educated by his “colleagues”, i.e., other nitwit Democrats, that it’s ok to hate the Jews in private, but you probably don’t want to go talking about it on your Facebook account.  Gotcha.

Democrats in Action, Part II – Speaking of the execrable Louis Farrakhan, The Soros-funded organization behind The Women’s March is losing top staffers and members due to its recently-revealed ties to the racist hate-monger.  Note that none of these deranged Democrats had any problem at all with the group’s ongoing association with the equally execrable radical Islamist Linda Sarsour.  If I were an African American Democrat voter, I might be wondering why that is the case?

The sad irony here is that, despite the Democrat Party’s open association with Mr. Farrakhan – the DNC’s deputy chairman, Keith Ellison, is a known associate, after all – when Jewish voters go to the polls this coming November, most of them will vote for Democrats, just as most Catholic Americans keep voting for Democrats despite that Party’s open hostility to their religion of choice.  It is truly a mind-boggling facet of American society.

Democrats in Action, Part III – Maine Democrat legislator Michelle Dubois has demanded that state officials change the name of one of the entrances to the state’s capital building because, she says, it is an affront to “women’s dignity.”  The entrance is called the “General Hooker Entrance,” and Ms. Dubois finds that, like, totally offensive.  Of course – and you Republicans know what’s coming here without me having to say it – the entrance is named for famed Civil War General John J. Hooker, who was a native of Maine.  I swear, I swear, I swear I do not make this stuff up.  Who could?

He fixes elections much more efficiently than the DNC and Hillary Clinton. – To no one’s surprise, Vladimir Putin was re-“elected” to yet another term as dictator of Russia, “winning” a whopping 73.9% of the vote.  Somewhere, the Pantsuit Princes is berating Debbie Wasserman Schultz for her under-performance in fixing the Democrat nominating process in 2016.  Fake journalists at CNN were busy constructing a narrative that proves Putin’s victory was the direct result of collusion with Donald Trump.

*Sigh*  No, it didn’t. – Some guy named Ryan Goodman, writing for some fake news site called “JustSecurity”, claims that Attorney General Jeff Sessions’ firing of Andrew McCabe, which was based on McCabe’s lying to the DOJ Inspector General about media leaks related to the Clinton email scandal, somehow violates Sessions’ “recusal” from the Russia Collusion investigation.  This is possibly the dumbest thing you’ll read all week.  I say “possibly” only because Juan Williams still works for Fox, and Chris Cuomo remains on the air at CNN.

All evidence to the contrary aside, there are still sane people living in California. – City Council members in the Calfornia town of Los Alamitos will vote this week approve an ordinance declaring the city to be exempt from the state’s patently unconstitutional “sanctuary state” law.  The ordinance correctly notes that the state law “may be in direct conflict with federal laws and the Constitution,” and that the council “finds that it is impossible to honor our oath to support and defend the Constitution of the United States.”  So next time a friend remarks that all the sane people have fled California and moved to Colorado or Austin, you can respond with “Nope, there is still at least one little enclave of clear thinking in Los Alamitos.”

Just another day in Jews controlling the weather America.

That is all.

Reaction to the McCabe Firing Proves the DC Swamp Will not be Drained Easily

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

While the fake news media outlets like CNN and MSNBC spent all day Saturday trying to brainwash the public into believing Andrew McCabe is pretty much as pure as the Virgin Mary, and that he was fired for purely political reasons, it’s important to remember the facts we do know about him:

  • This is a man who has spent his entire career making a government salary, and yet somehow has managed to accumulate a reported net worth in excess of $11 million;
  • McCabe’s firing was brought about via a recommendation from the DOJ’s Office of Professional Responsibility (OPR), which is populated mostly by people left over from the Obama Administration;
  • The OPR’s firing recommendation was based on a finding from an investigation conducted by the DOJ Inspector General, Michael Horowitz, who was originally hired for his job by…wait for it…Barack Hussein Obama;
  • That finding by the IG – that he lied to the IG’s inspectors about leaking to the media – is just one of multiple examples of improper behavior we know McCabe has been involved in over the last few years;
  • McCabe was also up to his ears in the efforts by the DOJ/FBI anti-Trump cabal to mislead the FISA court in seeking warrants to spy on the Trump Campaign during 2016;
  • We know that McCabe, after receiving information in September 2016 that Huma Abedin had been forwarding classified emails from Hillary Clinton’s illegal server to her pervert husband, Anthony Weiner, so he could print them out, sat on that information for a full month before being forced to do something with it;
  • We know that McCabe probably ordered Peter Strzok to alter his official 302 report related to his January 24, 2017 interview with General Mike Flynn, in an effort to entrap Flynn in a perjury charge;
  • And we know that McCabe probably perjured himself before congress when testifying about his role in all these things last year.

Despite the professionally-written talking points that McCabe and the deep state fake news media are reciting in unison, President Trump played literally no role whatsoever in McCabe’s firing.  McCabe was relieved of his duties thanks to the result of a 14-month-long investigation conducted by Obama appointees that led to a firing recommendation that came from Obama holdovers within the Department of Justice.

The truth is that the process that led to McCabe’s ultimate firing is a sadly rare example of the government processes working exactly as they are set up to work, a purely bureaucratic process from beginning to end with basically no political interference at all.  Trust me, if President Trump had had his way, Andrew McCabe would have been looking for new employment about 9 months ago.

Meanwhile, the flood of outrage coming from the Obama-era deep state actors who will also most likely find themselves in personal jeopardy as all these investigations come to a head in the next few months was as hyperbolic as it was predictable.

Fired FBI Director and aspiring future Dancing With the Stars participant James Comey started the hit parade with:

Obama CIA Director and noted drama queen John Brennan, emboldened by Comey’s act of deep state Twitter heroics, chimed in with this outright seditious screed:

After Brennan’s outburst – which should serve as the basis for a Secret Service investigation – famous serial felonious un-masker and Obama-era UN Ambassador Samantha Power couldn’t resist tossing out a clear threat to a sitting POTUS of her own:

There were others, but you get the picture.  Somehow, Obama-era Director of National Intelligence and admitted perjurer James Clapper, who is normally all over CNN whenever anything like this comes up, managed to remain silent in the wake of the McCabe firing.  Perhaps he was trying to send a signal to his deep state cabal compatriots:  If so, the signal was studiously ignored.

What this well-coordinated reaction from the deep state skunks and snakes and their willing conspirators in the fake news media gave us on Saturday is just a preview of things to come.  If anyone had thought that the inhabitants of the DC Swamp were just going to go quietly, well, it’s time to think again.  If anything, the reactions we will see from all these bad actors will only become more hyperbolic and intense with each succeeding action against their fellow conspirators.

This is why all of this is taking so long to come to fruition.  Attorney General Jeff Sessions and IG Horowitz must make absolutely sure that every action they bring against these cabal conspirators is completely supported by all bureaucratic requirements, painstakingly documented by findings of unarguable fact and buttoned down in a way that even a Washington, DC jury filled with Obama and Hillary Clinton voters will have no choice but to render guilty verdicts.  And they are going to have to accomplish all of that in an atmosphere in which 98% of the national news media will be doing everything it can to deceive the public and paint them as the bad guys.

Because that’s how the DC Swamp works.  If it wasn’t, we wouldn’t need to drain it.

Just another day in no one ever said that draining the DC Swamp would be easy America.

That is all.

The McCabe Firing Must be a Beginning, Not an End

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Down goes McCabe!  Down goes McCabe!  Down goes McCabe! – Sweaty swamp snake Andrew McCabe got his formal walking papers from Attorney General Jeff Sessions last night, one day before he turns 50 and his lucrative federal pension was about to kick in.  Despite the buttoned-down bureaucratic nature of the decision, based as it was on an Inspector General investigation and a firing recommendation from the DOJ Office of Professional Responsibility, the fake news media went into full fakery mode, declaring that this firing of a single well-documented bad actor means that President Donald Trump “is at war with the FBI.”

Over at MSNBC, the geriatric Andrea Mitchell, who has been faking the news since the Nixon Administration, issued this tweet in her self-described role as a “McCabe supporter”:

Remember, this is a person who wants you to believe she reports the “news” for a living.

McCabe himself didn’t take the news very well, issuing a long, self-serving statement that had obviously been carefully written by communications professionals, in which he portrays the President as the devil and himself as pure as the driven snow, and is fully consistent with the prevailing Democrat/media narrative on the matter.  Here’s a couple of paragraphs:

“This attack on my credibility is one part of a larger effort not just to slander me personally, but to taint the FBI, law enforcement, and intelligence professionals more generally,” McCabe said. “It is part of this Administration’s ongoing war on the FBI and the efforts of the Special Counsel investigation, which continue to this day. Their persistence in this campaign only highlights the importance of the Special Counsel’s work.

“For the last year and a half, my family and I have been the targets of an unrelenting assault on our reputation and my service to this country,” McCabe continued. “Articles too numerous to count have leveled every sort of false, defamatory and degrading allegation against us. The President’s tweets have amplified and exacerbated it all. He called for my firing. He called for me to be stripped of my pension after more than 20 years of service. And all along we have said nothing, never wanting to distract from the mission of the FBI by addressing the lies told and repeated about us. No more.”

‘War with the FBI’, ‘Trump has attacked me’, ‘Trump’s tweets are the problem’, bring the family into it because it helps build public sympathy, yada yada yada, blah blah blah.  All the hallmarks of a statement written by reliable leftist talking points monkeys, probably the same ones who wrote the script for all the programming on CNN and MSNBC last night.

Here’s the truth about Andrew McCabe and all the other swamp snakes and skunks who were involved in the DOJ/FBI Cabal’s efforts to fix the 2016 election for Hillary Clinton and then to hamstring the Trump presidency:  Firing them and/or reassigning them is not enough.  Denying them their pensions is not enough.  Humiliating them on the Donald Trump Twitter feed is not enough.

It will never be enough until these people – each and every one of them, without exception, is prosecuted to the full extent of the law and tossed into federal prison for the rest of their lives for the damage they have done to our country.  And that includes not only the bad actors at the FBI and DOJ – it includes all the bad actors at the Obama White House like Susan Rice and Samantha Power and Loretta Lynch and even Barack Obama if the conspiracy can be shown to have risen that high.  It also must include the fake journalists at the various fake media outlets who knowingly coordinated efforts with the cabal, and there is plenty of evidence that numerous fake journalists did so.

The truth here is that the firing of McCabe must not be the end of this tale, but the beginning of an effort to finally, once and for all, de-corrupt the FBI and DOJ after 8 years of their having been utterly corrupted by a corrupt president and his lackeys.  The truth is that the Trump White House needs to truly be at war with elements within the FBI and DOJ, and winning that war will require the good people who remain in those institutions to join the battle.

Hopefully, Jeff Sessions is up to that task.  The decision to jettison McCabe is a positive sign, though we should now expect the fake news media to start mounting assaults on Sessions’ character now that he has publicly taken a side.

For America to become truly great again, the firing of Andrew McCabe must be remembered as the first symbolic shot fired in what will become a long and brutal legal battle to recapture the nation’s soul.  Otherwise, it will go down in history as a meaningless futile gesture of a democratic republic destined to crumble.

Just another day in the game is afoot America.

That is all.

The Evening Campaign Update: A Very Eventful Week in Review

The Evening Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

As always seems to be the case, it’s been a really interesting week in many ways.  Let’s review some of the highlights…

The week began on Saturday with President Trump holding a rally for GOP congressional candidate Rick Saccone, during which he referred quite accurately to California Rep. Maxine Waters as “a low-IQ individual” and called NBC’s “Meet the Press” host Chuck Todd a “sleepy sonofabitch.”

In response, every Democrat on the planet called President Trump a racist – which is what they do whenever they want to take a break from calling him Hitler or Putin’s puppet – and Mr. Todd woke up from his 3rd nap of the day.

On the Sunday morning fakenews shows, the fake Indian senator from Massachusetts, Elizabeth “Little Never Shuts Up” Warren refused to concede that maybe, just maybe she should take a DNA test in order to prove her fake Indian heritage, which of course doesn’t exist.  She then also made it very clear that she is running for president in 2020 by denying she is running for president in 2020.

The Pantsuit Princess spent the week humiliating herself in India, causing so much reputational harm to the Democrat Party with her verbal gaffes and pratfalls that even many Democrats were begging her to just shut the hell up already and go away.  The problem is, even when she goes away, she doesn’t go away, as the images below attest:

A picture is worth 1,000 words, as they say, and those pictures travel all over the world in a micro-second.

On Monday, Irish Beto O’Rourke, the former “Rising star” of the Texas Democrat Party, committed political hari-kari before an audience at the SXSW Festival in Austin, coming out forcefully in favor of gun control in a state in which gun rights are not a partisan issue.  Irish Beto got him a standing ovation from the SXSW audience, but he’d get his butt run out little cafes and barbershops in places like Big Spring, Cotulla, Poth and Hico by Republicans and Democrats alike for uttering his anti-gun heresies.

The Democrats recovered somewhat on Tuesday, as their guy, Conor Lamb, defeated Saccone by a scant margin in the special congressional election.  The GOP announced later in the week that it will ask for a recount and an audit of the automated voting machines used in the election, after receiving reports of irregularities from many voters.  But at the moment, the seat appears to belong to Mr. Lamb.

Secretary of State Rex Tillerson got his walking papers via a presidential tweet early Wednesday morning, after having one disagreement too many with his boss.  He’ll be replaced by CIA Director Mike Pompeo, assuming the Republicans can muster up 50 votes to confirm him.  We’ll see.

Also on Wednesday, students all over the country walked out of classrooms and took to the streets to pretend they actually know something about gun control.  The hooky-playing trio below perfectly captured the spirit – and level of actual knowledge – on display at the rallies:

*sigh*

By the way, Democrats want to give 16 year-olds like these – who were likely swallowing Tide pods at parties a month ago – voting rights.  Of course, Democrats would advocate for giving chipmunks and weasels the right to vote if they believed chipmunks and weasels could be as easily brainwashed to reliably vote for Democrats as these kids have been.

Wednesday was a very busy day, and to round it all out, economist Larry Kudlow was named by the President as the replacement for the fired Gary Cohn – a major upgrade – and we found out that the DOJ Office of Professional Responsibility had given AG Jeff Sessions a firing recommendation related to former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, a decision Sessions must make by the end of the day on Sunday.  As I write this on Friday afternoon, Sessions naturally has made no announcement.  We’ll see.

Thursday came, and this happened:

Is any further explanation really necessary?  Nope.

On Friday, thanks to great real journalist Mollie Hemingway, we found out that deep state cabal FBI agent Peter Strzok had a personal relationship with the original judge in the Mike Flynn case, Rudolph Contreras.  Texts between Strzok and his mistress, FBI lawyer Lisa Page, reveal that the two planned to try to exert influence Judge Contreras when they discovered that he had been appointed to serve on the FISA court.

This latest of a series of revelations derived from the Strzok/Page text treasure trove may well explain why Judge Contreras was hastily removed from the Flynn case in early December, after Contreras had accepted Flynn’s guilty plea for lying to the FBI.  Of course, we now know that Flynn was not really guilty of that crime, but pleaded as he did because Robert Mueller and team of inquisitioners were driving him into bankruptcy and threatening his family.  Hopefully, that great injustice will be corrected soon.

Liberal lawyer Alan Dershowitz called on the Democrat Party to fire Deputy DNC Chairman Keith Ellison for his lying about his close ties to the despicable anti-Semite Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan.  Dershowitz also said that any Democrat congress member who has associated with Farrakhan should resign their office.

Dershowitz’s demands were unsurprisingly met with stony silence from every Democrat on earth and the fake news media outlets that serve as the Democrat Party’s propaganda wing.

Some things never change.

That is all.

The New York Times: All the #FakeNews That Fits

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Warning:  If Everything is Sexist, Nothing is Sexist. – House Democrat Caucus leader Joe Crowley told reporters on Thursday that efforts by Republican congressional candidates to tie their Democrat challengers to House Sepaker San Fran Nan are “sexist.”  Crowley did not offer any explanation as to why Republicans criticizing the obviously incompetent, disgraceful Pelosi is sexist, but Democrat efforts to demonize every Republican woman on the face of the earth is not, and of course none of the fake journalists present would have dared to pose one of their Democrat heroes a followup question asking for more information.

But the reason behind Crowley’s statement is obvious:   Democrats know that their doddering Majority Leader is their biggest handicap in the mid-term elections.  They realize that it’s worth several percentage points to every GOP candidate to use images of her and clips from her outrageous statements in their campaign ads, so their plan is to declare Republicans as being sexist for doing so.  It’s just part of the Democrats’ Saul Alinsky-driven playbook.

Somewhere in India, the Pantsuit Princess is berating Huma Abedin for nothing thinking of this racket first. – The UK Daily Mail reports that swamp skunk former FBI Director James Comey is about to embark on a nationwide tour promoting his new book, and he will be holding promotional events to which attendees must fork over $97 per ticket.  I swear I didn’t make that up.  Obviously, there are too many Americans who are really, really hard up for entertainment.  Someone should tell them about Netflix.

Speaking of the Fainting Felon, it turns out that “sprained hand” reported on Thursday was actually a fractured wrist.  The Grasping Grifter injured the wrist when she she slipped in the bathtub in her hotel room in the city of Jodhpur, according to reports.  If you’re interested, here’s a photo of the marble-cased tub, courtesy of the Daily Mail:

The Cackling Crank is obviously not staying at the Holiday Inn Express while on her India tour.  That’s for those “Deplorables” out there in flyover country.

The Washington Post is reporting that President Trump has definitely decided to get rid of National Security Advisor H.R. McMaster, so I guess McMaster will survive after all.  I mean, it’s the WaPo, which has filed almost as many false reports based on confidential “sources” as the New York Times over the last few years related to Trump.

According to the WaPo, former UN Ambassador John Bolton is Trump’s first choice to fill the job, but the Post also rolls out the names of National Security Council member Joseph “Keith” Kellogg and current White House Homeland Security Adviser Tom Bossert as potential replacements.

It’s interesting to note that White House spokesman Sarah Huckabee Sanders denied the WaPo report late Thursday evening via Twitter:

One would hope the President wouldn’t leave his press spokesman hanging out to dry like this, but it wouldn’t be the first time that happened, so we’ll just have to see how the day goes.

And speaking of fake reporting by fake news media outlets… – In case you missed it, Clinton shill Maggie Haberman and some other fake reporter at the New York Times named Michael Schmidt issued a breathless report on Thursday that Special Counsel Robert Mueller has subpoenaed records from the Trump Organization.  Oh, my word!  Dogs and cats living together, mass hysteria!

Folks, the Trump Organization has been responding to and complying with Mueller’s subpoenas for records since last Summer, when such activity was reported by the NYTimes and other fake news outlets.  In fact, yesterday’s story quotes Alan Futerfas, who is a lawyer with the Trump Organization, as saying the following:   “Since July 2017, we have advised the public that the Trump Organization is fully cooperative with all investigations, including the special counsel, and is responding to their requests. This is old news and our assistance and cooperation with the various investigations remains the same today.”

This is not just “old news,”, is not news at all.  What it is is an effort by the Times – and the unidentified criminal leakers in the Mueller team – to keep the Trump/Russia collusion fantasy on the front page of its fake newspaper.  In fact, Haberman and Schmidt can’t even attribute this story directly to those leakers – their attribution instead is to “two people briefed on the matter,” which could be a couple of guys who, over drinks with one of the Mueller flunkies at the Old Ebbitt Grill, heard the flunkie say “yeah, we tossed out another subpoena to the Trump Organization yesterday.”  Seriously, it could mean almost anything.

Haberman/Schmidt’s big “hook” in their fake story is this passage:   “The Trump Organization has said that it never had real estate holdings in Russia, but witnesses recently interviewed by Mr. Mueller have been asked about a possible real estate deal in Moscow.”   So, because some witnesses have been “asked” by Mueller’s Clinton/Obama-shill lawyers about a “possible real estate deal in Moscow,” Haberman/Schmidt want the reader to think this is somehow evidence of Trump “collusion” with Russia.

Note what that passage does not say:  It does not say that even a single witness has confirmed any Trump real estate deal in Moscow, or how, even if such a deal did take place years ago, that would in any way lead to a joint effort between the Trump Campaign and Vladimir Putin to influence the outcome of the 2016 election.

The Haberman/Schmidt story is the very definition of FAKE NEWS.  It is nothing more than an attempt to dress up old news as new news in order to try to influence public opinion against the current President of the United States.  It’s a disgrace to journalism, but then, it is the New York Times, so that pretty much goes without saying these days.

Just another day in Fake News America.

In Trump World, a Cabinet Appointment is a Temp Job

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Spoiled high school children across the country skipped class on Wednesday to go pretend to know something about guns and gun control policy.  It was, like, totally rad, and of course Democrat politicians around the country exploited the kids’ acting out to make political points.  San Fran Nan, Chuck Schumer and the execrable New York Governor Andrew Cuomo all made anti-gun speeches to groups of students while surrounded by security guards armed with…wait for it…you know what’s coming…guns!  None of the kids noticed the irony in that, mainly because pretty much none of them know what irony is, but they did get to ditch chem lab or PE, so they were all happy.

Tired of all this Winning yet? – President Donald Trump announced yesterday that he will bring in economist and long-time CNBC news host Larry Kudlow to replace Gary Cohn as his chief economic advisor.  Kudlow was also an economic advisor to Ronald Reagan, and, with the exception of import tariffs, is a strong supporter of the Trump economic agenda, and the Trump “put America first” presidency in general.  He will be a huge upgrade over Cohn, a liberal globalist who would have been far more in his natural habitat working in a Clinton administration.  Thank God he didn’t get the chance.

With the President having already replaced Rex Tillerson and Gary Cohn this week, it is obvious he is intent on re-molding his cabinet into a group that is more on-board with his agenda rather than their own.  This is now leading to rumor-mongering among the fake journalist set.  Rumors are now flying that Mr. Trump will also replace Attorney General Jeff Sessions and National Security Advisor H.R. McMaster before the week is out.

The problem with those rumors is that they are coming from Vanity Fair, the NYTimes’ Clinton flunky Maggie Haberman and CNN’s pathetic Jim Acosta, several of the fakest fake news sources in business today.  So there is maybe a 50/50 chance there is anything to them.

The rumor about McMaster does seem most credible.  The General is a pure globalist, a liberal who was hired very quickly after the Mike Flynn firing last February, and is very likely one of the main sources of ongoing leaks coming from the White House.  McMaster is the clown who was responsible for extending the top secret clearances of Susan Rice and other Obama-era skunks long after they had left office, much to the chagrin of the President.

Former U.N. Ambassador in the Bush Administration John Bolton is the most likely replacement for McMaster.  The problem with Bolton is that he is a war-mongering neo-con, but at least there would be no doubt about where his loyalties lay, and he would not be a leaking problem.

Where Sessions is concerned, this is one we should believe when we see it.  Given that the rumors, if they aren’t just being made up out of whole cloth, likely come from someone in the White House who hates Sessions, it could be just one more example of fake news mongering.  Scott Pruitt, the rumored replacement for Sessions, would be a fabulous Attorney General, and unlike Sessions, would not be stupidly and unnecessarily recused from exercising oversight over Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation.

The problem there is that Pruitt has also been fabulous at EPA, where he has been aggressively reforming that out-of-control agency back to its statutory purpose of actually working to protect the environment after eight years of working to kill the national economy.  Putting someone else in charge over there, no matter who it might be, would necessarily place the progress achieved under Pruitt to this point at risk.

The other cabinet officials rumored to be in some jeopardy are VA Secretary David Shulkin  and Housing and Urban Development Secretary Ben Carson.  Shulkin definitely needs to be gotten rid of, as he has been a walking, talking crap show in the job since day one.  Not only has he utterly failed to implement desperately-needed reforms at the VA, his personal behavior while in the job has resulted in a steady stream of negative press.

One problem:  Trump’s preferred candidate for this job, Energy Secretary Rick Perry, let it be known yesterday that he’s not really interested in taking on the intractable VA problems (who in their right mind would be at this point?), so Mr. Trump is going to have to find another candidate.

Carson has been similarly lackluster in his job performance at HUD, and also produced an embarrassment to the Administration a few weeks ago by spending gobs of money on unnecessarily fancy furniture and other accessories that don’t really belong in government offices.  There’s no real pressing emergency where Carson’s concerned – he just hasn’t turned out to be the right guy for that particular job.

In any event, we should all expect more cabinet shake-ups in the coming days, maybe before the day is out.  In fact, we should expect this to be an ongoing dynamic in this presidency.  This sort of churning of senior staff has been a feature in Trump’s business dealings, and there is no reason to expect his presidency to be any different.  The best way to look at these cabinet appointments is as temp jobs.

Just another day in it’s Donald Trump’s world and we’re just living in it America.

That is all.

That OPR Recommendation On Andrew McCabe Sure Is Interesting

The Evening Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

So, Andrew McCabe might be fired after all.  That, at least, is the decision Attorney General Jeff Sessions is suddenly faced with, six days before the swamp skunk McCabe is scheduled to retire with full benefits on March 20.

The stated reason the DOJ Office of Professional Responsibility (OPR) gives for its recommendation to AG Sessions is that McCabe improperly leaked information related to the 2016 FBI investigation into the Hillary Clinton e-mail scandal on multiple occasions.  This finding was made by Inspector General Michael Horowitz during his 14 month-long investigation into FBI/DOJ wrongdoing.

Here’s the irony in this situation:  the OPR report accusing McCabe of leaking to the media was made public today through…wait for it… leaks to the media.  What in the world are we to make of that?  Let’s face it, it’s not like the OPR has to this point been right on top of all the bad actors in this DOJ anti-Trump cabal that has been in action since mid-2016.  Where is the OPR report on Peter Strzok?  On Lisa Page?  On Bruce Ohr?  Any of the other already-identified bad actors?

So, why do we suddenly see this particular action on this particular day? I see three possibilities:

  1. The OPR is full of bad actors itself, and is trying put Sessions in a situation in which he has two options, either one of which will generate media controversy.  I’d rule this one out, because what’s a little media controversy to Jeff Sessions or the Trump Administration at this point?  I mean, who really cares?;
  2. Horowitz is clearing the playing field for the pending release of his report by starting to roll out a series of administrative recommendations based on his findings to discipline bad actors; or
  3. This is an isolated situation, and the OPR is simply acting in the normal course of business on the only recommendation it has thus far received from IG Horowitz.

Wait.  There is a fourth possibility, which is that McCabe was originally escorted from the premises in February but not technically fired as a way of giving him a carrot to cooperate with the IG’s investigation and other DOJ investigations into various Obama-era scandals that we know to be ongoing.  In this scenario, he is now facing the likelihood of termination – and loss of retirement benefits – because he has refused to become a cooperating witness.  Today’s leak to the media would be designed to put further pressure on him to cooperate.

Also in this scenario, we haven’t seen any similar firing recommendations on Strzok, Page, Ohr or others because they are cooperating with those investigations.

Occam’s Razor would dictate that Option 3 is most likely to be true, because it is, at least on the surface, the simplest explanation.  But when you think below the surface, that doesn’t really explain why it is that bad actors who have been publicly identified by the AG and IG themselves – Strzok, Page and Ohr – remain employed at DOJ and the FBI, though in “reassigned” positions, and have had no similar OPR report against them leaked to the press.

The only two scenarios that take all of that into account are Option 2 and Option 4.  Just for fun, I’ll go with number 4.  We’ll know for sure soon enough.

That is all.

Tillerson Was the Best Sec. of State in a Decade; Pompeo Will Be Better

The Evening Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

So, what to make of the Rex Tillerson firing?  There’s a lot to unpack here, so I’ll try to do it in a fairly orderly fashion.

First, let’s state up front the undeniable truth that Rex Tillerson was the nation’s finest Secretary of State in a decade.  Unlike his two immediate predecessors in the job, Mr. Tillerson is a patriot, a lover of America, a believer in promoting American-style Democracy around the world and protecting U.S. national security at home.  He had no interest in selling America’s foreign policy to the highest bidder or in promoting radical Islam throughout the Middle East and other parts of the world.

So, we all owe Mr. Tillerson our thanks for his service, and an appreciation for the way in which he represented the country for the last 14 months.

That having all been said, no one should be surprised at all that he is being replaced in his job.  The fact of the matter is that Tillerson was not on the same page as the President he pledged to serve in too many ways to have lasted long in the office.  Here are some examples:

  • He is a big fan of the horrible deal the Obama Administration did with the terrorist supporing Mullahs in Iran, and consistently slow-played providing information to the President that was not positive towards keeping the agreement in place;
  • He was accused of having called the President a “moron” behind his back last summer, and refused to either deny or apologize for uttering that insult despite being repeatedly questioned about it.  Not a lot of employees are going to survive calling their boss a “moron” for very long;
  • He is a big believer in man-made “global warming” theory in an administration made up largely of skeptics, and was reportedly upset that the President cancelled U.S. participation in the Paris Climate Accords;
  • He has not at any point been supportive of President Trump’s approach to dealing with the Crazy Little Fat Guy in North Korea;
  • He has been slow to hire people to fill senior posts in the State Department and even slower to clean out the deep state holdovers from the Obama Administration.

There are other examples of Tillerson’s conflict with his boss, but those seem to be the main ones.  Quite simply, Tillerson is not a “Trump guy” and was never going to become one.

He will now be replaced by Mike Pompeo, the current CIA Director, who is a “Trump guy” and will be on board with the Trump program.  Coming out of his CIA role, Pompeo knows where all the bodies are buried, all over the world.  This is a guy who graduated first in his class at West Point, a mechanical engineer with a highly analytical mind who doesn’t take any BS off of anybody.

He has a law degree from Harvard, where he served on the law review.  He’s a three-term congressman from Kansas who served on committees with oversight related to energy, intelligence, business and commerce and the CIA, as well as the House Select Committee on Benghazi.

You probably won’t be seeing any reports about Pompeo calling his boss a “moron,” and if you do, you’ll see a quick and unambiguous denial  from Pompeo, because any such report will be a fabrication.  You won’t see Pompeo slow-walking anything negative towards the Iran deal, or slow-walking anything else, for that matter.  You won’t see Pompeo shedding tears about the Paris Accords or publicly at odds with the President over North Korea.

We all owe Tillerson our gratitude, and we should all be happy that Pompeo will be our new Secretary of State.  The Trump Administration just got stronger with this change.

When news of the Pompeo appointment became public, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer issued the following tweet, one which he probably thought would make all of his base of leftwing idiots happy as little clams:

But it turned out that not all leftwing idiots were happy after all.  The leftwing idiot who is the de facto propaganda minister for the Russian-supported anti-Fracking movement, Josh Fox, responded to Chuckie’s tweet with a little R-rated missive of his own:

So, as you can see, there is trouble in pinhead paradise.  No doubt, Schumer’s completely insincere reference to getting tough towards Putin and Russia is what really set Fox off.  After all, a guy’s got to make a living, right?  You cut that Russian funding off, why, the anti-fracking movement would have to find some honest money instead.  And that would be hard.

That is all.

The Hillary Clinton Excuse Generator Doll Humiliates Itself in India

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

[Ok, it was actually Hillary Clinton who humiliated her own self in India, but seriously, someone needs to manufacture a Hillary Clinton Bobblehead Excuse Generator Doll.  Just pull the string and it spits out one of 100 excuses for losing the election.  You’d sell a billion of them, promise.]

The Pantsuit Princess was in the news on Monday for rolling out yet more excuses for why she lost the presidential election in 2016.  If you thought she had already blamed everyone else in the United States of America for her failure except for herself, boy, were you wrong.

Speaking to an audience in India, of all places, where the great majority of the population is poor, uneducated and unproductive, the Coughing Crook blamed her loss on people who are poor, uneducated and unproductive.  Oh, and they were all racists, too.  No kidding:

“There’s all that red in the middle, where Trump won. Now, I win the coasts, I win Illinois, Minnesota, places like that. But what the map doesn’t show you is that I won the places that represent two-thirds of America’s gross domestic product. So I won the places that are optimistic, diverse, dynamic, moving forward, and his whole campaign, Make America Great Again, was looking backwards. ‘You don’t like black people getting rights, you don’t like women getting jobs, you don’t want to see that Indian-American succeeding more than you are, whatever your problem is, I’m going to solve it.'”

Oh, but it gets better.  The 100% self-absorbed, 0% self-aware Fainting Felon, who has spent much of her adult life claiming to be a champion of women’s rights, went on to claim that any woman who voted for Donald Trump did so only because their husband or their boss told them to do so.

Then, as if to prove beyond all remaining doubt (could there really be any at this point?) that she was indeed the very worst candidate for any elective office in American history, the Grasping Grifter proceeded to stumble down the steps leading out of the venue, despite being held up by two men.  We can expect her to blame the incident on the two men, who no doubt told her to stumble, a demand that she, as a mere woman, had no ability to resist.

Never stop talking, Hillary.  Please, never stop.

The House Intelligence Committee announced Monday evening that it has concluded its year-long investigation into allegations that the Trump Campaign “colluded” with Russia to influence the 2016 elections, and found zero evidence to support the claims.  Combined, the three major network newscasts devoted less than 1 minute of coverage to that bit of news.  If this surprises you, you probably get your news from the evening network newscasts.

San Fran Nan stammered through a condemnation of the Committee’s move, slamming Speaker Paul Ryan for not keeping the investigation going into perpetuity.  Because, of course, the Democrats’ goal whenever there is a Republican in the White House is to always have myriad fake investigations into fake scandals going simultaneously.  This is especially true when GOP policies are producing things like jobs and economic prosperity.  It’s the Democrat playbook, right there on page 359.

The Democrat playbook also demands that they and their myriad fake journalist press agents continue to demonize Committee Chairman Devin Nunes (Low-IQ Maxine Waters carried out that task on MSNBC Monday night), and that bug-eyed Adam Schiff produce a minority report filled with classified information, which the administration will have to heavily redact, giving the Democrats and the fake news media the excuse to scream “coverup!”  Yes, it’s tiresome, yes, it’s incredibly dishonest, but what do you expect Democrats to do, focus on policy?

Hah!  That’ll be the day.  Focusing on policy got deleted from the Democrat playbook way back in 1992, when Bill and Hillary got elected to their co-presidency.  It will never return, trust me.

Speaking of fake news outlets, economic prosperity and jobs, the fakest #fakenews outlet of them all, CNN, just keeps getting faker as time goes along.  For years, CNN had kept an updated online “jobs tracker”, which provided monthly updates about the number of jobs added or lost by the U.S. economy during the George W. Bush and Barack Hussein Obama administrations.

But updating the tracker has amounted to just too much good news for President Donald Trump over the last year, as the Trump economy has kept adding new jobs at an accelerating pace.  So, the fake journalists at CNN just couldn’t take it anymore, and decided at the first of the year to stop updating the tracker.  That is sad, pathetic and hilarious all rolled up into a tight little fake news ball.

Just another day in the Democrat playbook America.

That is all.

Fake Religions, Fake Indians and Fake Republicans

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

The Church of Scientology is getting its own TV channel.  Yay!  The favored fake religion of Hollywood’s mindless nitwits announced over the weekend that it will begin rolling out content today on Apple TV, Roku and DirectTV.  And guess what?  I have DirecTV at my home, so I’ll get to watch it for you and give you a review!  Ok, just kidding – the little wifey and I are in the middle of a 7-season marathon of Homeland, so there will be no time at all for Scientology TV.  No word on what the new programming on the new channel will consist of, but it’s a very safe bet that a bunch of really bad flicks by Tom Cruise and John Travolta will be prominently featured in the mix.

Speaking of outright frauds, Elizabeth Warren was challenged on several Sunday morning fake news programs to just take a DNA test and put this whole fake Indian thing to bed.  Just spit into a cup, seal it up, mail it in to that online DNA testing service, and two weeks later it will all be over.  And hey, the chances are really, really good that the results she gets back are going to claim she has some small percentage of Indian blood in her, because that’s what that service does:  It tells everyone that they come from pretty much everywhere.

But oh, no, not Fauxcahontas.  She’s not having any of that.  She is so certain of her Indian blood because of “family lore” and all, that she just doesn’t need to have any proof.  Of course, the truth is most likely that the shameless phony has been lying about it all these years and she’s scared to death that she will be the 1 in 100 people who get results back denying that she has any Indian DNA at all.

The fake Indian Senator from Massachusetts also stated definitely, at least half a dozen times, that “I am not running for president” when asked by her Sunday interviewers.  Given her history, we can take this to be a definitive statement that she is indeed planning to run for the Democrat nomination in 2020.

Boy, that Democrat presidential field is just going to be chock full of fakes, phonies and frauds in two years.  In addition to the fakest Indian in America, President Trump will also be challenged by a field that will include 80 year-old commie Bernie Sanders, 77 year-old hair implant poster child, serial woman groper and nude swimmer Joe Biden, the latest reboot of the Pantsuit Princess, the completely deranged Corey Booker, the even more completely deranged Chicago congressman Luis Gutierrez, the amazingly unaccomplished Kamala Harris, and Oprah.  No word if Bill Nye the fake science guy will join the fun, but hey, he certainly has the career fraud qualifications down pat, so why not?

In case you missed it, the Democrat Party took a first step towards reducing the number of “super delegates” to its 2020 convention over the weekend, a move that will likely end up reducing their numbers by about half.  This will make it a little tougher for the Coughing Crook to rig the nominating process again in 2020 like she and Debbie Wasserman Schulz and the DNC did in 2016.  So we can expect even more fakes, phones, frauds and freaks to line up in the coming months to pursue the party’s nomination, now that there might be a 40% chance the Clintons won’t rig the thing again.

Speaking of fakes, phonies and frauds, RINO Senator Jeff Flake came to Chuck Todd’s defense on NBC’s “Meet the Press” on Sunday, after President Trump had referred to the show’s host as a “sleepy sonofabitch” during his Saturday rally in Pittsburgh.  The terminally whiny Sen. Flake actually blamed President Trump’s calling out of the fake news media in the U.S. as causing the arrests of journalists in other countries.  No, really, that’s what he said:

“We have a record number of journalists being jailed overseas, some on false news charges, echoing the phrases he uses. I don’t think it’s a responsible thing to do. I really don’t.”

First of all, we don’t have a “record number” of journalists being jailed overseas.  It’s pretty likely that the “record” for that particular exercise was established during the Bolshevik revolution in Russia a century ago.  Second, tin pot dictators and communist thugs all over the world have been arresting journalists they don’t like all throughout human history, so claiming this is something that just started when Donald Trump took office 14 months ago is more dishonest than any claim Elizabeth Warren has ever made about her fake Indian ancestry.

Third, note to “Meet the Press”:  Jeff Flake has a  public approval rating in his own home state that consistently hovers below 20%.  Nobody cares what Jeff Flake thinks or says.  If you’re going to have a token fake Republican show up on your program, why not invite Lindsey Graham or Susan Collins?  They at least could win an election in their own state if they had to run again today.

Just another weekend of fakes, phones and frauds parading across our TV screens America.

That is all.

Has Jeff Sessions Been Boiling the Frog? Sure Seems That Way.

The Evening Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

There isn’t much worth reading in the #NeverTrump enclave that is The National Review anymore, but there are exceptions to this rule.  Anything written by the great Victor Davis Hanson is one such exception.  Anything written by Andrew C. McCarthy is the other.

McCarthy, who is himself a former federal prosecutor, published a very interesting piece at National Review on Saturday.  It’s long, but well worth the read, as he provides an excellent synopsis of alleged FBI and DOJ abuses in both the Clinton email scandal and the whole Trump-Russia “collusion” fantasy play, and concludes with a strong and interesting recommendation on how Attorney General Jeff Sessions should proceed to have both matters investigated and, if warranted, prosecuted.

In brief, McCarthy is no fan of the special counsel law in general or of the specific and growing calls from an array of congressional Republicans for the appointment of a second special counsel to “investigate the investigators”.  He believes the special counsel law is structured in a way that pretty much ensures out-of-control investigations with no investigative sidebars or budgetary restrictions, ones that inevitably end up causing an amazing amount of political and societal disruption, ruin lives, and whose end results tend to be a handful of convictions of minor functionaries for process violations that may or may not have any relation to the supposed reason why the investigation began in the first place.  See the results of the Robert Mueller investigation thus far as a primary example.

Rather than repeat this prosecutorial circus with the appointment of another special counsel, McCarthy proposes the following approach:

Here is what should be done. Attorney General Sessions should assign a U.S. attorney from outside Washington to conduct a probe of how the Clinton-emails and Trump-Russia investigations were handled by the Justice Department and FBI…

…the designated U.S. attorney would handle this investigation along with the rest of the work of his or her office — this would not be a prosecutor whose only assignment is to pursue a single target or set of targets, and who thus faces great pressure to file charges, no matter how far afield from the original focus of the investigation, in order to justify the appointment. Unlike the inspector general, the U.S. attorney would have full jurisdiction to convene a grand jury; investigate any crimes attendant to the Clinton-emails and Trump-Russia probes; issue subpoenas and seek other court process (such as search warrants) to secure evidence; and prosecute any violations of law by persons inside or outside of government.

I find this specific recommendation, coming on this specific weekend to be fascinating, because McCarthy’s recommendation for investigating DOJ/FBI conduct in these two scandals/non-scandals essentially amounts to an endorsement to the approach Sessions himself told Fox News’s Shannon Bream on Wednesday that he is already pursuing in looking into alleged DOJ/FBI abuses of the FISA process (Jeff Sessions Dropped a Bomb – Hardly Anyone Noticed).

To quote Sessions:

“I have appointed a person outside of Washington, many years in the Department of Justice (DOJ), to look at all the allegations that the House Judiciary Committee members sent to us; and we’re conducting that investigation.” 

And, as I pointed out in that piece on Thursday:

Unlike [DOJ Inspector General Michael] Horowitz, this unidentified special prosecutor would have the power to convene a grand jury – and may have already done so – and quickly begin issuing subpoenas based on the recommendations contain in the Horowitz report.

Let’s also remember that, over the course of three weeks in December and January, Sessions let it be known that he has taken a similar approach to forming DOJ investigations into the following Clinton/Obama era scandals:

  • Uranium One;
  • The Clinton Foundation;
  • Felony leaks coming out of DOJ and the FBI;
  • The Obama/Hezbollah “Project Cassandra” scandal.

Combine all of those investigations with the DOJ Inspector General investigation, along with multiple other likely ongoing investigations we don’t even know about yet, and you have a very busy Justice Department indeed.

What’s so interesting is the way in which Sessions has gone about letting all of this be known, always casually mentioning the existence of this investigation or that in the middle of interviews, almost as an afterthought in response to a question.  He’s done it in a way that has prevented the media from engaging in feeding frenzies around any of them, and has also prevented any leaking to the press around any of them.

He’s done it so quietly that it has led many to accuse him of being a do-nothing, lazy or even compromised in some way by people who are simply unaware of everything that is going on.  I was one of those people up until last November, in fact.  Even as astute an observer as Andrew McCarthy appeared, in his piece from yesterday, unaware that the method he was suggesting for investigating one scandal was in fact the method Sessions has been employing all along related to other investigations.

Boiling the frog.  That’s what they call it in the DC Swamp when one side is inexorably turning up the heat on the opposition so slowly that the opposition doesn’t notice until the time has passed to take any effective defensive action.

If that really has been the strategy, it’s been amazingly effective.  Hopefully, the IG report will finally drop soon, and we’ll begin to find out.

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.

Morning Joe and Maddow Go Full Blown Deranged Over Trump/Kim Meeting

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Tired of all this Winning yet? – President Donald Trump (I never tire of typing those words) took the wonderful step on Friday of issuing a pardon to former Navy Submariner Kristian Saucier.  Saucier was persecuted (and yes, I did mean to type that word, not “prosecuted”) by the Obama Justice Department in 2016 for having taken photos of a naval nuclear guidance system with his cell phone, ultimately being sentenced to serve a year in prison during the same time Obama’s DOJ was actively helping the Pantsuit Princess avoid any punishment at all for her illegal email server, and trying to fix the general election on her behalf.

Where we know that the Coughing Crook’s email server – on which gobs of classified information was transmitted – was hacked by several hostile nations, there was no allegation at all that Mr. Saucier had shared the photos of the guidance system with anyone.

At her Friday press briefing, White House spokesman Sarah Huckabee Sanders had this to say:

“Mr. Saucier was 22 years old at the time of his offenses and has served out his 12-month sentence. He has been recognized by his fellow service members for his dedication, skill and patriotic spirit,” she said.

“While serving, he regularly mentored younger sailors and served as an instructor for new recruits. The sentencing judge found that Mr. Saucier’s offense stands in contrast to his commendable military service,” she said. “The president is appreciative of Mr. Saucier’s service to the country.”

So, yet another aspect of the pathetic, un-American Obama “legacy” has been reversed by Donald J. Trump.  That, folks, is #WINNING.

Tony Heller – who uses the pseudonym “Steve Goddard” on his Twitter account – has done a great job of documenting how Obama climate activists at NASA and NOAA have systematically created “global warming” where none has taken place in the last 20 years by going back in time to make the past appear cooler by falsifying the global temperature records.

Heller issued this tweet on Friday:

 

To which I replied:

Yes, I know I misspelled “Grapes” thanks to a recalcitrant “e” key, but you get the point.  Goddard did, too, replying with:

Can’t wait to see it.  Of course, all the snowflakes and social justice warriors will think the video is actually a documentary.

If you don’t follow Heller at his website, “The Deplorable Climate Science Blog,” you are missing out.

The Dimwits over at MSNBC went absolutely berserk in response to President Trump’s announcement that he is planning to meet with North Korea’s Crazy Little Fat Guy in the next few months to discuss the de-nuclearization of the Korean Peninsula.  Joe Scarborough, appealing to his demented fan base in the upper East side of Manhattan, claimed that Trump really isn’t planning to engage in negotiations with the mad little dictator.

With his disgusting mistress Mika nodding her head beside him, the former fake Republican congressman said that Trump only made the announcement to distract attention away from the media’s obsession with porn starlet Stormy Daniels, who is claiming to have had an affair with Mr. Trump a decade ago.  I swear I don’t make this stuff up.

That was MSNBC’s wisdom circa Friday morning.  On Thursday evening, it was even worse, as the very odd Rachel Maddow went on an epic rant that left The Mooch speculating she needed to “take a suppository” to get over it.  Here is just a snippet of the Madness of Maddow:

“You might think another president in this circumstance, you can imagine a president asking himself or herself, ‘why has no other American president ever agreed to do this? Why has no sitting American president ever met with a leader from North Korea? Why has that never happened in all the decades North Korea existed as a nation? Should I take that to mean that this might be particularly risky or even an unwise move?'”

“It has been through Republican and Democratic administrations, the whole strategy not only for the United States but for the United States as leader of the free world, to the extent that we are, has been to treat North Korea as a pariah state and thereby try to change their behavior.”

Of course, Maddow lacks the self-awareness to ask herself why it is that the posture taken towards North Korea by previous presidents Clinton, Bush and Obama had led directly to the incredibly dangerous situation that President Trump inherited when he assumed office last year.  She is so consumed by Trump hatred that she cannot even consider that taking the same posture vis a vis North Korea over and over again for 25 years only to achieve the same terrible result is in fact the very definition of insanity, and that possibly, just possibly, a change of direction might thus be in order.  But hey, that’s totally understandable:  She is a liberal, after all.

Just another day in Trump Derangement Syndrome America.

That is all.
