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:
Just spoke to @POTUS and Gen. H.R. McMaster – contrary to reports they have a good working relationship and there are no changes at the NSC.

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.
That is all.
