Today’s Campaign Update
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)
Sitting here on a Saturday morning wondering when Oprah and Barack are going to go up to Michigan to campaign on behalf of the single most-qualified candidate for the U.S. senate running anywhere in this election. That would be John James, a black man, who is running against the execrable Debbie Stabenow, a white woman.
Ok, silly me – James is a Republican, so he doesn’t qualify as being “black” in the world of Oprah and Barack.
Speaking of America’s Biggest Mistake… – A day after the Oprah campaigned on behalf of Florida gubernatorial candidate Andrew Gillum, Barack Hussein Obama was down in the Sunshine State doing the same thing before an audience of dozens of Floridians.
As is Obama’s habit whenever campaigning in the South, he spent his entire speech trying like hell to sound like a southern black guy. Take a listen to the fake accent here:
Just unbelievable, shameful pandering. But that’s our Barack!
A human dumpster fire walks into a bar. The bartender looks up and says, “What’ll it be, Alec Baldwin?” – Washed-up actor and horrible father Alec Baldwin was taken to jail in New York City yesterday. Again. How many times is this? Not sure. But he always gets off, presumably because of white privilege, or something.
Anyway, he got into a dispute with a guy over a parking spot, because, hey, we all know how tough it is to find parking in Manhattan, thanks to reruns of Seinfeld. The C-list actor had had a relative holding the spot for him as he prepared to back into it, but the victim pulled into the spot first. Baldwin, being the demented hot-head that he truly is, jumped out of his car and punched the guy as he was feeding the parking meter.
Hilarity ensued. No doubt the writers at Saturday Night Live have already come up with an extremely not-funny skit about it for tonight’s show, with Baldwin playing himself. Because that’s how our depraved entertainment industry works.
Just wait until we find out Christine Ford never met Brett Kavanaugh, either. – Judy Munro-Leighton, one of the women who accused Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh of being a rapist last month, has recanted her story and admitted she never even met the man. Guess she’s pissed that she didn’t get her own million-dollar GoFundMe account from the Democrats who planned the whole smear operation.
For her troubles, she does get her own personal criminal referral authored by Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley, so she’s got that going for her. This was the third such referral Grassley has sent over to the Department of Justice in the last 10 days, and no one should think for a minute that he is done here. Every one of the women who accused Kavanaugh was lying, and if we ever get a real attorney general into office, they might all end up serving time in federal prisons.
Speaking of news the fake New York Times and CNN will ignore… – We had possibly the single most stunning jobs report in American history on Friday. Yes, the 250,000 new jobs was amazing; yes, the 3.7% rate of unemployment is fantastic; yes, the 3.1 real wage growth is terrific, the strongest in more than a decade. A new record 156,562,000 Americans employed? Almost unbelievable. Black unemployment? An all-time low. Hispanic unemployment? An all-time low. Female employment? An all-time high.
But the most amazing part of this amazing report? Not one, single, solitary industry in the United States of America suffered a net loss in jobs. Not one. Retail jobs? Up. Manufacturing jobs? Up. Mining jobs? Up. Industrial jobs? Up. On and on it went, throughout every single segment of the most diverse and massive economy in the history of civilization.
Barack Obama was happy to destroy U.S. manufacturing jobs and ship them overseas, telling Americans that they were old-style jobs that were never coming back. The Trump economy just created more than 1,000 new manufacturing jobs every DAY during October. Every DAY. This happened during a time in which all the “experts” predicted the Trump trade dispute with China would result in a net loss in manufacturing jobs. Oops. So much for “experts.”
Back in December, I wrote that the biggest economic problem our country would face in 2018 would be finding enough people to fill all the jobs that would result from the passage of the Trump tax cuts. Today, after this incredible jobs report, employers have more job openings than we have qualified applicants looking to fill them. I’m 62 years old – this has never happened in my lifetime.
Enjoy it while you can – next time we elect a Democrat to the presidency, it’ll all come to a crashing end.
That is all.
Update: Just found some stunning numbers I wanted to share with my readers, courtesy of GOP Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel:
If President Obama actually wants to keep score:
In 8 years, Obama had a net loss of 192,000 manufacturing and 111,500 mining jobs.
In less than 2 years, @realDonaldTrump has created 416,000 manufacturing and 112,700 mining jobs.
Don't let Democrats stop this progress!

Vote Republican on Tuesday. This is the easiest decision we have ever had.
