Today’s Campaign Update
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)
Was he 1/1024th Indian, too? – Hey, we’re gonna need a new nickname for Fauxcahontas, ‘cuz now she’s pretending to be the reincarnation of Teddy Roosevelt.
That’s right, your favorite fake Indian decided yesterday that she needed a new schtick to help her bust through what has pretty much been a virtual media blackout on covering campaign, and decided it would just be a great thing start talking about breaking up all the big monopolies, as The Bull Moose did in the early 20th century with Standard Oil, the railroads and other big industrial “trusts”.
Of course, these days, the monopolies are not industrial in nature, but digital. Thus, Little Mouth Always Running’s announcement centered on busting up companies like Facebook, Amazon and Google. No word if Senator Whose Granny Had High Cheekbones plans on grabbing some of the long-dead President’s DNA so she can run a test on it, but it seems likely.
Speaking of media blackouts… – Unless you watch Fox News, you will have no idea at all that the U.S. military now believes that this very weekend will spell the death of ISIS as Allied troops overrun the few remaining square miles of territory still controlled by the terrorist group in Syria.
As the U.S. military-led offensive to rout the Calliphate cancer once and for all had been conducted over the last month, Fox has been the only television channel giving it any real coverage, with the others refusing to air film and photos of thousands of terrorist “soldiers” surrendering on the battlefield.
This is all in preparation for keeping President Trump’s January commitment to withdraw all but a handful of U.S. troops from Syria. That is exactly what needs to happen, given that ISIS still enjoys widespread support among the Syrian people, and that is an ongoing self-inflicted wound that no amount of U.S. military action can resolve.
The problem of ISIS is a problem of the Islamic soul, and continuing to have U.S. military personnel come home in body bags due to their involvement in this hopeless fight is a foolish action started by foolish presidents that this President was elected to end.
In case you get your news from the three major TV networks and missed it… – The effort by Chicago’s law enforcement community to make actor Jussie Smollett pay for his shameful hoax continued late Friday as a grand jury returned an indictment against him containing 16 felony counts of disorderly conduct.
The news-fakers at CNN ran a grudging story on its website with the following headline: “Jussie Smollett Indicted on 16 Felony Counts for Allegedly Making False Reports.” The story’s first four paragraphs are structured to read like a defense of a falsely -accused man:
“‘Empire’ actor Jussie Smollett, who authorities say filed false reports of a crime, has been indicted on 16 felony counts by a Cook County grand jury.
The indictment charges Smollett, 36, with 16 counts of disorderly conduct.Mark Geragos, one of Smollett’s attorneys and a CNN legal analyst, said the actor maintains his innocence and called the indictment “prosecutorial overkill.”“This redundant and vindictive indictment is nothing more than a desperate attempt to make headlines,” Geragos said.”
Some of you non-Millennials may remember Mark Geragos as one of the sleazebag lawyers who defended both Michael Jackson and Scott Peterson. His career proves that even monsters are entitled to a strong defense under the law.
Ol’ Jussie’s not a monster – he’s just a Trump-hating jackass who perpetrated a poorly-planned hoax that wasted hundreds of thousands of taxpayer dollars, and the Chicago Police are going to hold him responsible for that, Geragos or not.
Why are DC media people and Never-Trumpers such pedantic creeps? – President Donald Trump just keeps driving America’s media nitwit class nuts, often without even trying.
Friday was a great example, as the President traveled down to Alabama to witness the devastation caused by this week’s terrible tornadoes, and visit with some of the survivors and families of victims. During the course of that trip, the President was asked by several folks he met with at a local church facility if he would agree to sign their bibles. Those asking included several children and victims’ family members.
Being a normal person with an actual heart and not a pedantic Washington, DC media creep, the President readily agreed to sign the bibles – if he had refused, he would have been scorched by our fake news media, of course. But hey, he was scorched anyway, with talking heads on CNN and MSNBC tsk-tsking about the spectacle of an American president actually autographing Bibles of all things.
California Congressman Ted Lieu weighed in with a typically nasty tweet, but then had the good sense to delete it after he’d received massive pushback from his followers, admitting he’s so clueless he didn’t even know why the President was in Alabama in the first place. You just can’t make this stuff up:
I have concluded based on Twitter comments I received that my last tweet was inappropriate. I understand the purpose now of the President's visit to Alabama. I apologize and am going to delete my tweet.

Matthew Dowd, a minor figure in the Never-Trump movement who at one time in the past pretended to be a conservative, didn’t even have that much sense. Dowd issued at tweet in which he said “I don’t know who it is a worse commentary on: Trump actually signing Bibles in Alabama, or the people asking him to sign a Bible. Lordy Moses,” demonstrating his typical elitist’s contempt for both the current POTUS and ordinary Americans who are coping as best they can with a massive tragedy.
The truth is that tweet says a lot about Matthew Dowd, and none of it is good.
That is all.
