Today’s Campaign Update
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)
Seems like there is a lesson to be learned in here somewhere. – So, lessee here…the pro-Trump Republican gubernatorial candidate in Arizona, Doug Ducey, easily won his race by more than 150,000 votes. Meanwhile, the Trump-avoiding GOP senatorial candidate, Martha McSally, who basically campaigned as the second coming of despicable RINO Jeff Flake, lost her race by about 48,000 votes at the latest count.
Hmmmm. How do we explain that? Think maybe there’s a cause and effect kind of thing going on there? Nah, must be something else, because your fake news media tells you so.
Speaking of lessons to be learned, it seems the French government has a hard time doing that. – Fresh off of taking a series of cheap shots at President Donald Trump and the United States over these past four days, French President Emmanuel Macron saw his public approval ratings take another nose dive. The most recent poll shows that just 26% of French citizens approve of their juvenile President, while 71% disapprove.
President Trump must have seen that poll, given that he issued this tweet directed at Macron early this morning:
Emmanuel Macron suggests building its own army to protect Europe against the U.S., China and Russia. But it was Germany in World Wars One & Two – How did that work out for France? They were starting to learn German in Paris before the U.S. came along. Pay for NATO or not!

It’s good advice – are France and the rest of Europe capable of learning from the hard lessons of the past? A review of the history of the 20th century is not at all encouraging.
Hey, hey, hey! We have a narrative to stick to here, buddy! – NASA scientist Martin Mlynczak of NASA’s Langley Research Center expects the earth to go into a period of record…wait for it…COLD temperatures in the coming months and years thanks to a lack of solar sun spot activity. The lack of sun spots, i.e., solar storms, in recent years is causing the sun to go into a prolonged solar minimum cycle during which the heat it emits is lower than normal.
“Right now, it is very low indeed … 10 times smaller than we see during more active phases of the solar cycle,” says Mlynczak. “If current trends continue, it could soon set a Space Age record for cold. We’re not there quite yet, but it could happen in a matter of months.” Yikes.
Somewhere, Al Gore is sweating anyway.
Lying is what she does for a living, after all. – Longtime Democrat fake journalist hack Andrea Mitchell repeatedly told her paltry audience on MSNBC yesterday that Broward County Elections Supervisor Brenda Snipes is…wait for it… a Republican! I kid you not.
The problem is, of course, she isn’t. Yes, she was put into her office by doofus ex-Florida Governor Jeb! Bush, who is sort of a Republican, but Jeb! appointed lots of Democrats while Governor there because he wanted to be all bi-partisan and stuff, like any other good RINO would have done.
But Ms. Snipes is a registered Democrat today, and has always been a registered Democrat. We could be generous here and speculate that Mitchell was simply mistaken yesterday, but it is far more likely that she, like everyone else in our fake news media, was actually reading from a set of talking points provided to her by the Democratic National Committee.
Oh, and speaking of Andrea Mitchell, she also had this to say on Twitter yesterday:
Congrats to @NBCNews’ Capitol Hill team on receiving the Joan Shorenstein Barone Award for its reporting on sexual harassment on the Hill – @kasie, @LACaldwellDC, @MariannaNBCNews, @AlexNBCNews, @frankthorp, @GarrettHaake, and Rich Gardella.

Yes, friends, NBC News, the same organization that allowed Matt Lauer to prey on young interns and aspiring reporters for years while his co-hosts joked about it on-air, the same organization that killed Ronan Farrow’s Harvey Weinstein expose’ before he got it published by The New Yorker, has won an award for its reporting on sexual harassment. You seriously just can’t make this stuff up.
While we’re on the subject of NBC News… – Jonathan Allen published a fawning puff piece at NBCnews.com on Democrat gubernatorial candidate Andrew Gillum yesterday under this headline: “Gillum Bets His Future on Defending Floridians’ Right To Vote,” which is possibly the most dishonest headline in the history of headlines.
Let’s be honest about what Gillum is defending here, ok? No one, not Rick Scott, not Ron DeSantis, not Donald Trump, not anyone is attempting to deny any American citizen the right to cast a LEGAL vote, in Florida or anywhere else. Gillum is actually betting his future on trying to force the counting of fraudulent votes, illegal votes cast by non-citizens, dead people and people who never existed. He’s betting his future on trying to force the counting of boxes of ballots mysteriously “found” after election day in trunks of cars, elementary school kitchens and other unlikely places, and ballots that witnesses testify were in fact filled out by Democrat election workers in Broward and Palm Beach Counties.
He is defending the chronic practice by elections officials in both of those counties to refuse to comply with Florida’s election laws, despite the fact that the state’s other 65 counties consistently manage to do so. He is defending the refusal by Snipes and Palm Beach County Elections Supervisor Susan Bucher (Also a Democrat, despite what Andrea Mitchell might try to tell you) to comply with multiple court orders. He is defending the most obvious, blatant attempt to steal an election since Al Gore tried to steal a presidential election in these same two counties back in 2000. That is what Gillum is “defending” here, nothing more.
Luckily for the nation, Gillum and Democrat Senator Bill Nelson are going to fail, but NBC and the rest of our fake news media will just keep on lying about it all anyway. Because that is who they are and it is what they do.
