Today’s Campaign Update
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)
Democrats in Action! Part I – The Daily Caller reports this morning that an admitted pedophile who once threatened to assassinate President George W. Bush is now an “independent” congressional candidate thanks to the efforts of despicable former Virginia Governor and long-time Clinton bag man Terry McAuliffe.
Per the Caller:
“Nathan Larson is an independent candidate in Virginia who admitted to HuffPost that he’s a pedophile who bragged in blog posts about raping his ex-wife and fantasized online about having sex with young children.
Larson is also a convicted felon who wouldn’t be eligible to run for office in Virginia had McAuliffe not restored Larson’s rights to vote and run for office in 2016.
Larson was sentenced to 16 months in prison in October 2009 for threatening to kill the president.”
Virginia law cancels voting rights for convicted felons, but McAuliffe, in a desperate effort to fix the 2016 election in his state for the Pantsuit Princess, issued an executive order in 2016 restoring voting rights to more than 10,000 convicted felons in the state, most of whom he obviously expected to vote Democrat. Gee, wonder why?
So now Larson’s running for Congress thanks to the despicable actions of a despicable man. Way to go, Democrats!
Democrats in Action! Part II – Speaking of Virginia Democrats, some guy named Dan Helmer is running for congress in the state’s 10th congressional district against incumbent Republican Barbara Comstock. Although completely overshadowed by all the hysteria surrounding Roseanne Barr and Samantha Bee, Helmer’s new TV ad created controversy yesterday because it equates the current President of the United States to Osama Bin Laden.
I would say this is a new low for Democrats, but is it really? They’ve gone so low so many times that it becomes almost impossible to tell anymore.
One thing is for sure: Virginia’s Democrats are just loading up the November ballot with scumbags, which they obviously believe is the right strategy for appealing to the state’s voters. Hey, they voted for McAuliffe twice, so sound legit to me.
Democrats in Action! Part III – Famed liberal poll analyst Nate Silver, who was hilariously wrong about every. little. thing during the 2016 election campaign, has a post up on his website this morning titled…wait for it…”Which Pollsters to Trust in 2018.” I swear I don’t make this stuff up. Who could?
Tired of all this Winning yet? – President Donald Trump issued a pardon on Thursday for conservative film-maker Dinesh D’Souza, in an obvious jab at both former U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara (who Trump fired) and former FBI Director and current teenage drama queen James Comey (who Trump also fired).
D’Souza had been made an example of by the corrupt Obama Justice Department and FBI after he had produced a film critical of America’s Biggest Mistake, Mr. Obama. Bharara and Comey’s FBI turned D’Souza into a literal political prisoner for having contributed $20,000 to a New York political candidate, allegedly exceeding the contribution limits by encouraging others to also contribute. The filmmaker plead guilty after Bharara had Comey’s agents raid his home and threatened to add additional charges for the same alleged actions that could have resulted in 5 years in federal prison.
In other words, Bharara was using exactly the tactics that Special Counsel Robert Mueller used to browbeat General Mike Flynn into his guilty plea last November – do it, or we’ll completely destroy your life. This is Gestapo stuff, not anything that should happen in America. But don’t kid yourselves: it happens all the time.
Talking to reporters later in the day, the President speculated he might also pardon Martha Stewart, who then-FBI Director Mueller’s thugs also browbeat into a guilty plea for lying to investigators in 2004. You may have thought the home designer served her 5 months in prison for “insider trading” – the allegation that led to the FBI’s inquisition of her, but you’d be wrong.
Curiously – and somewhat hilariously – the President also speculated that he might even pardon former Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich, who was sent to prison for allegedly selling the senate seat Obama vacated in 2007 to the highest bidder. Fans of the Celebrity Apprentice will remember that Blago actually was a contestant on that show while he was awaiting trial. Since his conviction, evidence of FBI thuggery and prosecutors withholding of exculpatory evidence have come to light, which should at this point surprise absolutely no one with actively firing synapses in their brain.
The U.S. Attorney in that case? Patrick Fitzgerald, the infamous Bush-era Special Counsel who basically framed Scooter Libby, who, by the way, Trump also pardoned a few weeks ago. The FBI Director at the time? First Robert Mueller, later James Comey. So that case is a two-fer.
Now that he’s pretty much finished erasing the horrid, un-American legacy of Barack Obama, President Trump seems intent on erasing the equally repugnant legacy of America’s Gestapo. Awesome.
Just another day in Donald Trump’s America.
That is all.
