Today’s Campaign Update
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)
Life at the Tippy-top can be hard. – Tuesday was a tough one for freshman congress member Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, our intrepid nitwit from the Bronx. Or is she? From the Bronx, that is.
First, she had to fend off legitimate questions about whether she even lives in the district she pretends to represent in congress, a problem for a growing number of Democrats, including Maxine Waters. Then she came under fire for the pay policy she has implemented among her staff, which includes a salary cap of $80,000, with a floor of $52,000.
Critics correctly point out the policy will prevent AOC from hiring top talent, since experienced staffers on Capitol Hill typically are paid in the $150,000 range. Meanwhile, the ex-bartender with the IQ of an average gin and tonic herself is knocking down a sweet, “tippy-top” salary of $174,000 per year, making others wonder why, if she’s really a committed socialist, she isn’t redistributing most of her wealth among the little people?
Finally, this happened at dinnertime last night:
Hi AOC, why is your Chief of Staff eating a hamburger? smh pic.twitter.com/sJanAC1Oz2

That’s right: Barely 72 hours after lecturing Americans against the evils of eating hamburgers and other beef products because, like, the environment, or something, AOC got a small taste of the Sarah Huckabee Sanders treatment, as an enterprising passerby spotted her dining out with a burger-eating monster, captured the moment with his I-Phone and posted it all on Twitter.
For the record, I think members of congress, regardless of how stupid or personally wretched they might be, should be able to dine out in public without fear of such harassment, just as members of the Trump Administration ought to be able to do the same. But if this had to happen to one Democrat not named Maxine Waters, Adam Schiff or Eric Swalwell, it couldn’t have happened to anyone more deserving than the nitwit from the Bronx, er, wherever it is she that she actually resides.
Oh, hey, remember when the Democrats all said that “Climate Change” is the “most pressing national security issue of our time”? – Yeah, they were lying about that, too.
Want proof? Yesterday, the Democrats on the House Energy Resources Committee had scheduled a hearing on the whole subject of “Climate Change” so they could all recite the dogmatic talking points of their favorite religion, but guess what happened?
So few Democrats actually showed up for the hearing that they found themselves outnumbered by the Republicans who chose to attend. Texas Rep. Louie Gohmert, recognizing the moment he found himself in, quickly made a motion to adjourn the hearing due to the lack of interest on the part of the Democrats, and the GOP members carried the vote by a 4-2 margin.
Hearing adjourned. Thus, the all-seeing, all-knowing, all-powerful god of “Climate Change” that is responsible for literally every uncomfortable aspect of human existence if all the climate “scientists” are to be believed, was left free to continue its ravaging of our planet by the members of the United States Congress. All because the Democrats aren’t really all that concerned about “Climate Change”, but will continue pounding home their talking points on the subject as long as they poll well among the frightened, ignorant masses.
Here’s all you really need to know about Michael Cohen. – I’ve written about this before, but it deserves repeating today since the Rat’s opening statement has been very predictably leaked in advance by some Democrat to the New York Times.
All you need to know about Michael Cohen is:
- He is about to go spend a lot of time in prison because he was already found guilty of lying to congress and to federal prosecutors; and
- His own lawyer is a guy named Lanny Davis.
Many of you will be familiar with Lanny Davis. Here is the truth I wrote about Mr. Davis last August 30th:
Lanny Davis has made a fabulous living for the last 25 years being a professional liar on television. He has lied for a living on behalf of a seemingly endless array of skunks and snakes, starting with Bill and Hillary Clinton and is now doing it for ex-Trump lawyer Michael Cohen.
Lanny Davis is, simply put, a professional liar, nothing more. When you are a client who, out of all the lawyers in the country available to represent you in your case, chooses to be represented by a professional liar like Lanny Davis, that means your plan is to lie, lie, keep lying, and lie some more. There is literally no other reason for anyone to hire Mr. Davis.
So it should come as no surprise to anyone that Michael Cohen is planning to tell yet another completely different story than he has told other congressional committees in his prior testimonies. He has invented a new fairy tale that conveniently supports all of the Democrat/media fake narratives about President Donald Trump in the hopes of getting his prison sentence reduced.
Lanny Davis has been inventing fairy tales that support favored media/Democrat narratives for 25 years now. What’s one more?
That is all.
