Today’s Campaign Update
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)
Today’s news from California. Oh, my. – A scheme to infest the U.S. Congress with an additional four nitwit senators from California by splitting the state into three parts was slapped down by the California Supreme Court on Wednesday:
The court said in an en banc decision Wednesday that “significant questions have been raised regarding the proposition’s validity” and that “the potential harm in permitting the measure to remain on the ballot outweighs the potential harm in delaying the proposition to a future election.”
So, the Republic is safe for now, though the insidious proposal will almost certainly come up again in 2 years, and 2 years after that, and 2 years after that…
Meanwhile, just in case some of you agree with former FBI Director and current teenage drama queen James Comey that we can trust the Democrat Party to protect our nation, the Democrats in San Francisco began handing out voter registration cards to illegal immigrants on Monday. City officials claim that this is just to allow parents who have kids in the public school to vote in school elections, but no one really believes that. No word yet on whether California Democrats will send activists over to Tehran and start registering the Mullahs, too, but it seems just a matter of time.
Also in San Francisco, in case you missed it late last week, new Mayor London Breed (yes, that’s her name) told the media that her city is full of, well, poop. I swear I don’t make this stuff up – who could?
“I will say there is more feces on the sidewalks than I’ve ever seen growing up here,” Breed said. “That is a huge problem and we are not just talking about from dogs — we’re talking about from humans.”
The Mayor’s solution to the problem? You can’t make that up, either: She proposes to “educate” the city’s massive and growing population of homeless people to “clean up after themselves.”
Somehow, I don’t think this is going to end well.
Here’s an idea: How about we replace that whole “3 state” idea with that “CalExit” ballot measure that would allow Californians to vote to secede, and put it on a fast track? Our country would be much safer – and far less poopy – if we got that one done.
Your Democrats in Action! Part I – With their whole “A Better Deal” slogan having come up a crapper (sorry, I still have California on my mind) with the voters, House Democrats on Wednesday unveiled a new, improved and highly poll-tested tag for their mid-term election campaigns: “For The People.”
Yeah! All right! Man, is that inspiring, or what?
Wait, though. For ‘which’ people? For the illegal immigrants in San Francisco? Those people? For the MS-13 gang members, in who San Fran Nan Pelosi sees “the spark of divinity”? Those people? For the felons whose voting rights Democrats are working to restore all over the country, because they know most of them will vote Democrat? Those people? Which people?
I can’t help wondering if any member of the House Democrat Caucus thought through the implications of the fact that the most logical abbreviation of their new, inspiring slogan happens to be “F the People,” which, of course, is how Democrats feel about all of us actual non-felon American citizens and anyone living out here in Flyover Country.
Probably not. That’s why they’re Democrats.
Your Democrats in Action! Part II – As a part of their recent massive expression of hysterical outrage and virtue signaling over the fake border “crisis”, several congressional Democrats co-sponsored a bill that would abolish ICE, the federal Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency, even though ICE has literally nothing to do with the manner in which illegal aliens are housed in border detention facilities.
Seeing an opportunity to make a political point, House GOP leaders first decided to bring the Democrat bill quickly to the floor for a vote, so every Democrat would have to go on record as either supporting or not supporting the irrational, illiterate desires of their vapid anti-American voter base. Naturally, the Democrat sponsors of the legislation panicked and pulled their proposal.
So the GOP leaders came with a proposal of their own yesterday, a simple resolution of support for the “officers and personnel who carry out the important mission of the United States Immigration and Customs Enforcement.” A no-brainer for any patriotic American who actually supports our law enforcement officials, right? Right.
Not exactly, since just 18 Democrats voted in favor of this resolution, roughly 10% of the total Democrat members of the House, with 13 actually voting against it. At least those 13 had the guts to vote how they really feel about it. Another 133 Democrats simply voted “present”, the most cowardly act any member of congress can take on any piece of legislation.
And, as so often happens, President Trump tweeted on this very subject as I was typing this piece:
The Democrats have a death wish, in more ways than one – they actually want to abolish ICE. This should cost them heavily in the Midterms. Yesterday, the Republicans overwhelmingly passed a bill supporting ICE!

Spooky how he does that, huh?
So, to be clear, just 10% of Democrats in the U.S. House of Representatives, when it comes down to actually casting a vote – the clearest way for any policymaker to express his or her true views – support our federal law enforcement officials. Put that in your pocket to be whipped out next time some social justice warrior accuses you of treason for criticizing the outright seditionists who remain in the FBI.
Just another day in Democrats hate law enforcement America.
That is all.
