The Fakest Fake Scandal in FakeNews History

Today’s Campaign Update
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

How fake is the “whistleblower” scandal? The “whistleblower” in question doesn’t even possess first-hand information. – At least, if you believe the Washington Post’s reporting on the matter. This little nugget was buried deep within the bowels of a Saturday WaPo report on the subject:

“The whistleblower didn’t have direct knowledge of the communications, an official briefed on the matter told CNN. Instead, the whistleblower’s concerns came in part from learning information that was not obtained during the course of their work, and those details have played a role in the administration’s determination that the complaint didn’t fit the reporting requirements under the intelligence whistleblower law, the official said.”

Oh. Helps to know facts, doesn’t it? Too bad our fake news media refuses to focus on those facts, preferring instead to harp on the bullsh*t being spread by the Democrat Party.

Here’s another fact: The intelligence whistleblower law everyone keeps referring to doesn’t even apply to the President of the United States in any event. That law applies to people within the intelligence community and their conduct during the course of their jobs. The POTUS is not a part of the “intelligence community.” Attempting to apply it to the President would have huge separation of powers issues, given that the law is designed to give congress oversight related to the intelligence community.

The POTUS is the POTUS. Period. The POTUS has unique constitutional authority to conduct the foreign policy of the United States of America. The conduct of foreign policy includes phone calls with foreign leaders like the one in question in this fake news fake scandal.

Such calls are attended by an array of senior intelligence, State Department and other officials who listen as a matter of course. None of the officials who were actually on the call and actually listened to the conversation lodged any complaint or concern about it. The supposed “whistleblower” – almost certainly a holdover from the Obama administration – has no standing at all here.

This is a fake news fake scandal. Period. It is simply one more in a long line of unending efforts by the Democrats and their media toadies to harm this President and his ability to conduct the nation’s foreign policy. These are subversive, seditious actions by disloyal people who don’t give a damn about the health and survival of this country.

These are Democrats. This is who they are, and what they do.

That is all.

Here is Some Real News the Fake Media Won’t Report

Today’s Campaign Update, Part II
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

While the fake U.S. news media focuses on its latest hit job on President Donald Trump, let’s take a look at the real news they won’t be willing to show you. – First, here are President Trump’s full comments on that #fakenews “scandal” from this morning’s press availability:

As the President points out there, don’t hold your breath waiting for any major mainstream media outlet to fill its readers/viewers in on the real scandal in all of that, since it involved Joe Biden and his son, Hunter, both of whom are part of the protected Democrat class.

And here’s Creepy Uncle Joe admitting he did exactly what the President said he did, in the second clip below:

Don’t expect to see that clip of Biden played anywhere outside of OANN or Fox News.

For a good summary of the full story behind Biden’s abuse of power vis a vis Ukraine, read the piece in The Hill linked below:

Oh, hey, here’s a picture of Greta Thunberg, who has received billions in free media over the last 2 months, dressed up in her Antifa t-shirt. Oh, and both of her parents, too. Isn’t that revealing?

Image may contain: 3 people, people smiling, people standing

Again, don’t expect to see that on CNN or MSNBC or any of the broadcast networks news programs anytime soon. Or ever.

Gosh, here is the latest about major, big-time California Democrat contributor/fundraiser Ed Buck:

Prosecutors: At Least 10 Victims in Ed Buck Sex-and-Overdose Case

Edward Buck appears in Los Angeles Superior Court, Thursday, Sept. 19, 2019, in Los Angeles. The prominent LGBTQ political activist was arrested Tuesday and charged with operating a drug house and providing methamphetamine to a 37-year-old man who overdosed on Sept. 11, but survived, officials said. Two other men have …

Here are some other pictures of Ed Buck, posing with some of his favorite Democrats.:

Don’t expect to see any of those photos or the stories behind them exposed on 60 Minutes, 48 Hours or in the pages of the New York Times.

Here is CBS News, desperately trying to rehabilitate another member of its protected class, leftist Canadian Prime Minister Blackface Trudeau:

I will close this out with some good news, that of a true national treasure, Jim “Mattress Mack” McIngvale:

Every time the City of Houston has a crisis, Jim McIngvale, owner of the gigantic Gallery Furniture Store in North Houston, steps up to the plate in a big way. In the past several flooding events, he has opened up his huge warehouse to anyone who has been displaced from their homes, and borne most of the costs of keeping them fed, clothed and comfortable for days on end.

This is a wonderful, great American with a giant heart, and President Trump would do well to award him the Presidential Medal of Freedom. He is far more deserving than many of those who have received that honor.

Have a great weekend.

That is all.

Media/Democrats Will Try to Parlay the “Whistleblower” Into Another Special Counsel

Today’s Campaign Update
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

“Whistleblower” a real crisis? No, just more fake news. – Let’s all understand this latest effort by our fake news media and the deep state to harm President Donald Trump for what it is: A desperate attempt to protect Creepy Uncle Joe Biden and to trump up a pretense for a second special counsel.

Here’s the background: When the Unfrozen Caveman Senator was Vice President for Barack Obama His Own Self back in 2016, he allegedly threatened Ukrainian officials that the U.S. would withhold foreign aid funds unless the government fired a prosecutor general named Viktor Shokin, who was investigating the activities of Biden’s son, Hunter Biden, in that country. Lo and behold, weeks later Shokin was fired and Hunter was home free.

In a recent phone conversation with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, President Trump allegedly asked him to take a look at the issues surrounding that improper action by an American Vice President, as well as other issues surrounding Hunter Biden’s business dealings in that country. Rudy Giuliani admitted on CNN yesterday that he made a similar request on behalf of president Trump earlier this year.

So, which would you consider to be a “scandal” here: A Vice President strong-arming a foreign government to protect his son, or a President asking a foreign government to investigate that Vice President’s obviously improper actions? This is not a hard decision for anyone with any sense of personal ethics.

For our fake news media, acting on behalf of the Democrats and the Deep State, the choice is easy and perverse: Bad Orange Man is bad, Crazy Uncle is good. Thus, Bad Orange Man’s action is the “scandal.”

The Democrats and their media toadies will now attempt to use this request by the President as the next “Russia Collusion” narrative. No fewer than three separate House committees opened investigations into this “scandal” yesterday, demanding documents and testimony they know they will not receive.

You can be sure that calls for a special counsel will come next, perhaps as soon as later today. It’s part of the Deep State Kabuki Theater, after all. If Attorney General William Barr agrees to such a request, then we will know for certain sure he is no different or better than Jeff Sessions.

This is all these people have. It is who they are. This is what desperate animals do. Enjoy the show. I’m going to read a good book.

That is all.

Another Lefty in Blackface and 50 Years of Climate Alarmism

Today’s Campaign Update
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

What is it with leftist politicians and this blackface thing? – Was it just a really big deal among white lefties in the 1980s and 1990s to do blackface parties? Asking because, having never been a lefty, I would have never been invited to their shindigs (all you Millennials and Gen-Zers will have to google that reference).

Anyways, leftist Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has now achieved the Ralph Northam and Hillary Clinton badge of honor, as a photo of him in full blackface (the fawning Canadian press is calling it “brownface” as if that makes it all better) at a party that supposedly took place in 2001 has gone public. Oh, and check out the placement of his hand, also painted black – it’s like he’s channeling Joe Biden:

Image

Of course, Trudeau was just 29 at the time, so presumably his defense will be that he was just young and stupid at that time, whereas now he is 48 and still stupid. So, I’m not sure that defense is going to work out for him.

But something had better work, since this new revelation comes in the midst of his campaign for re-election. The incident just adds trouble atop an already troubled situation, as Trudeau has been plagued by allegations that he improperly interfered in a corruption case against an engineering company that had been a supporter of his election. Trudeau has denied any improprieties, but two members of his cabinet felt so strongly that his administration had acted improperly that they tendered their resignations.

But hey, Northam’s own blackface photo surfaced a year ago now, and he’s still in office, living fat and happy with no one in the Democrat Party or the U.S. fake news media bothering to talk about him anymore. Given that Canada’s media is every bit as fake as America’s, you have to assume he’ll survive. After all, being a racist is fine if your politics are “correct.” Right? Right.

Kudos to Tony Heller and the Competitive Enterprise Institute – Myron Ebell and Steven J. Milloy, working in conjunction with Climate Realist Tony Heller, have published a wonderful compilation of the last 50 years of failed climate change alarmist predictions at the Competitive Enterprise Institute (CEI). Everyone should take the time to go through it.

We tend to be lulled by the massive climate scam propaganda industry into believing that climate alarmism is some sort of recent thing. But the truth, as Heller catalogs daily at his RealClimateScience website and Twitter feed is that this has all been going on in our fake news media for a century or more. Ebell and Milloy take their piece back to 1967 because that was the year that the greatest climate fraud before Al Gore, Paul Ehrlich, began to come to prominence in the media, using his dire predictions at the time of a new ice age that was always just around the corner.

One early Ehrlich statement, from 1969, that really grabs the attention is this one from an article in the reliable old New York Times: “The problem with almost all environmental problems, says Paul Ehrlich, the population biologist, “is that by the time we have enough evidence to convince people, you’re dead.”

And yet, here we are 50 years later, somehow still alive, and with the fake news media still somehow referencing Ehrlich, who has alternately said we’d all be dead from an ice age, overpopulation, famine, the ozone hole, acid rain and global warming, as some sort of credible figure on the subject.

So, what has really happened over that half-century span, as alarmists have worked to raise public fears over all manner of environmental problems, both real and imagined? Our environment has almost immeasurably cleaner, thanks to the miracle of human ingenuity and technological advancement.

The ice age that Ehrlich predicted to come by the 1990s never came. Nor did the mass famines he said would kill billions by 1980s due to overpopulation, thanks to gigantic advancements in crop yields and food distribution networks. According to data compiled by the World Bank, almost half the global population lived in extreme poverty in 1970. Today, fewer than 10% do.

Remember acid rain? That problem was effectively dealt with and today is almost non-existent. How about that hole in the ozone layer? Remember how that was going to kill everyone when it was discovered over Antartica in 1985? This week it was reported to be the smallest it has been in decades, thanks to technology and human ingenuity.

In the 1970s, due mainly to lax regulation of coal-fired power plants and car emissions, the air in the United States was frankly putrid, dangerous to breathe in places like Los Angeles and New York and Pittsburgh and Detroit. Today, thanks to advancing technology and human ingenuity, our air is light years cleaner. Indeed, the successful removal of well over 95% of all real pollutants from our air was one of the motivations for the alarmist community to shift focus to claiming that CO2 – the very basis for life on earth – is now a danger.

Also in the 1970s, water in the U.S. was a horror story in many parts of the country. Rivers were still used by cities as outlets for raw sewage flows. The Cuyahoga River in Cleveland was so dirty and filled with refuse from refineries and other industrial plants that it actually caught fire in 1969. That incident and other horror tales led to the passage of the Clean Water Act shortly thereafter, and thanks to human ingenuity and technological advancement, water all over America is vastly cleaner today.

All of those things and many more have happened in the last half-century, since Ehrlich predicted we’d all be dead because nobody cared.

It turns out that Americans care a lot about the environment. What Americans don’t care much for is being constantly lied to by charlatans and scammers like Ehrlich, Gore and the climate alarmist fear lobby.

Thanks to Ebell, Malloy and Heller for reminding us all of that today.

That is all.

No American Has Any Obligation to be Honest With Our Dishonest Media

Today’s Campaign Update
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Lewandowski’s right: No one has any obligation to be honest with a dishonest press. – Writing in The Atlantic, Russell Berman has a pearl-clutching piece about Cory Lewandowski treating Jerrold Nadler’s contemptible fake impeachment hearing yesterday with, well, contempt. Which is exactly what Lewandowski did, and deservedly so.

Berman lays out several examples of Lewandowski’s alleged contempt, and they’re all pretty much accurate. The upper east-side reader base of The Atlantic will all tut-tut and mutter ‘well, I never,’ naturally forgetting how they all cheered when an array of Obama-era officials committed mass perjury before the same committee during 2017-18, when it was chaired by a Republican.

One very interesting exchange Berman whines about came when Lewandowski told Democrat hired consultant Lawfare lawyer Barry Berke that,  “I have no obligation to be honest with the media because they are just as dishonest as anybody else,” a statement that elicited gasps in the hearing room. No doubt most, if not all of those gasps came from members of the media assembled there.

So, here’s the irony of a writer for The Atlantic complaining about Lewandowski’s contempt not just for the Democrats on the House Judiciary Committee, but also for the fake news media: On the same day Berman’s piece was published, the magazine produced another piece, written by the dishonest pair of New York Times reporters who were caught in massive lies about Justice Brett Kavanaugh over the weekend.

As discovered by the great Mollie Hemingway, Senior Editor for The Federalist, The Atlantic’s piece, intended as a free advertisement for the Times’ reporters’ new smear book on Kavanaugh, contains another gigantic whopper. As we pointed out in yesterday’s Campaign Update, the book focuses on an alleged incident during Kavanaugh’s time in college – 38 years ago – in which he supposedly committed a lewd act at a party towards a girl who was supposedly there.

Never mind that the girl in question has no memory of any such incident, or even being at the party – something you would think would stick in her mind into perpetuity. Never mind that the authors end up admitting that they have literally no actual witnesses to the alleged lewd act at all, and base their entire despicable book on pure hearsay that no real journalist would ever dream of citing. This is Brett Kavanaugh, threat to Roe v. Wade, we’re talking about here, so the dragon must be slain by any means possible, even if it requires the commission of conscious journalistic mendacity.

Hemingway exposed the authors for the deceitful hacks they truly are over the weekend, taking less than 24 hours to do so, and now exposes them even further as lying yet again in their Atlantic piece. In that piece, the authors claim that “The people who allegedly witnessed the event—Kavanaugh’s friends Kevin Genda, David Todd, and David White—have kept mum about it.”

That is a straight-up falsehood, as Hemingway details, pointing to a New Yorker piece written about the alleged incident a year ago:

One of the male classmates who Ramirez said egged on Kavanaugh denied any memory of the party. ‘I don’t think Brett would flash himself to Debbie, or anyone, for that matter,’ he said. Asked why he thought Ramirez was making the allegation, he responded, ‘I have no idea.’ The other male classmate who Ramirez said was involved in the incident commented, ‘I have zero recollection.’

In a statement, two of those male classmates who Ramirez alleged were involved in the incident, the wife of a third male student she said was involved, and one other classmate, Dan Murphy, disputed Ramirez’s account of events: ‘We were the people closest to Brett Kavanaugh during his first year at Yale. He was a roommate to some of us, and we spent a great deal of time with him, including in the dorm where this incident allegedly took place. Some of us were also friends with Debbie Ramirez during and after her time at Yale. We can say with confidence that if the incident Debbie alleges ever occurred, we would have seen or heard about it—and we did not.

There’s even more, but you get the gist. The New York Times reporters – who I refuse to name here for the same reason I refuse to name mass killers, because they’re all shameful attention-seekers – at best failed to conduct even the most rudimentary research into the previous reporting by others on this alleged incident. At worst, they simply hoped to cover up the truth about what these supposed witnesses have in fact said about it.

So, this just becomes another in a long, long line of incidents in which “news” outlets like the New York Times and The Atlantic have been caught in blatant efforts to deceive the public about Trump-related officials. It should also be noted that the New Yorker piece referred to by Hemingway was itself revealed to contain a string of falsehoods shortly after it was published.

In the 4 years since Donald Trump announced his presidential candidacy, we have witnessed dozens of incidents – if not hundreds – in which supposed “news” organizations like these three, along with CNN, MSNBC, ABC, NBC, CBS, the Washington Post and many others have published or aired heinously false reports about President Trump, his family, and a vast array of Administration officials and been forced to later sheepishly correct them and even fire the reporters and editors involved.

These are not honest mistakes. These are not oversights or errors in the editing process. These are obvious, intentional efforts to deceive in order to attain a political goal. We know this because the “mistakes” always, without exception, serve to damage the President or anyone connected to him. Honest mistakes would cut both ways.

This is the sorry state of America’s news media today, and it is not getting better over time. If anything, the incidents of outright false reporting are accelerating as the Democrats and their media toadies continue to fail in their efforts to “get” Trump. A sense of rising desperation does that to people.

Given this reality, what possible obligation would Cory Lewandowski or any other American have to deal with such a manifestly dishonest media establishment honestly and truthfully? When you know that anything you say to a reporter is going to be twisted, edited, omitted or taken out of context in order to be made to seem damaging, why worry about honesty? When you know the media outlet you are dealing with cares nothing about facts, why bother with facts?

The press corps can gasp, tsk-tsk and mutter all the “well, I nevers” they want, but this is a situation of their own making. They have made this bed, and now they are lying in it, both figuratively and literally.

Enemies of the people, plain and simple.

That is all.

Antonio Brown Farts and Impeachment Hearings: What do They Have in Common?

Today’s Campaign Update, Part II
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

I don’t want to make light of today’s impeachment hearing held by the House Judiciary Committee…ok, who am I kidding? – Of course, I want to make fun of today’s impeachment held by the House Judiciary Committee.

Why? Because it’s a damn circus run by circus clowns, that’s why.

Embattled Patriots Wide Receiver Antonio Brown was accused by his former doctor in Pittsburgh in a court filing today of repeatedly farting in the doctor’s face while he was undergoing an exam, and all I could think of was, hey, he’d be a perfect Democrat member of the House Judiciary Committee. I mean, why not have a Democrat up there who does nothing but fart at witnesses? He’d make a hell of a lot more sense than the actual Democrats did.

Image result for antonio brown fart memes

Honestly, I don’t know how Cory Lewandowski kept a straight face during the first hour of this sham process, which was all I could stand to watch. It is as if Nancy Pelosi decided to pack this committee with the very dimmest bulbs in her entire caucus, and identifying the dimmest among that collection of universally dim bulbs is no easy task.

Here are the first four Democrat members who questioned Lewandowski during the hearing’s opening hour:

Jabba the Nadler

Stephen “I’m gonna eat me some friiiiiiiiiieeeeed chicken” Cohen

Sheila “We landed men on Mars and planted our flag there” Jackson Lee

Hank “I’m really worried Guam might capsize if we keep moving people there” Johnson

How do you treat this lineup of nitwits, miscreants and ne’er-do-wells seriously? It’s a damn clown parade, it really is.

So, you tell me, why not have an NFL player who’s about to get kicked out of the NFL up there just farting into the microphone? It would be every bit as serious an endeavor and deserving of respect as the travesty the Democrats rolled out there today.

CBS Exposes a Corrupt New York Times Smear

Today’s Campaign Update
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

That thing that happens when not everyone is down with the latest smear effort. – The newsfakers at the New York Times made big news of their own on Monday when they were forced by actual journalists to issue a correction to their latest smear story targeting Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh.

This latest story was penned by two Times fake reporters who have a new book out. Oh, joy! The book rehashes old accusations against Kavanaugh brought forward and rejected as baseless last year, while pretending to add new meat to the bone to one accuser who supposedly claimed that Kavanaugh exposed himself to her at a party. The fake authors claim in the book to have found 7 “witnesses” who supposedly remember the incident.

Big problem: Not a single one of those seven “witnesses” make any claim to have actually witnessed anything. Only one of them was actually at the party in question and has no specific memory of Kavanaugh being involved in any exposing of anything other than a beer cup. None of the other six were even at the party. Oh.

Wait! It gets better: The alleged “victim” herself has no memory of the “incident” alleged in the book, and refused to even discuss it with the authors. Now, that’s some “journalism” right there, huh?

The fake reporters naturally saved those bits of  key information for very late in the book and made no mention of them in the story they penned for the oh-so accommodating pages of their employer’s fake newspaper. But actual journalists at other media outlets, including Mollie Hemingway at The Federalist, exposed all of this and much more over the weekend, creating a huge blowback towards the Times and its fake reporters and forcing the Times to issue a correction to the story.

This smear effort was so transparent and corrupt that it even had Brit Hume, who has stubbornly avoided calling his colleagues corrupt all these years, finally giving in to unavoidable reality:

But by the time the “correction” was issued, the intended damage to Justice Kavanaugh had already been done, which was the plan all along. For every 100 people who read or heard about the original story, you might have five who read or heard about the correction. This is how our fake news media does these smear campaigns, of course.

Normally, everyone else in the fake news media is fully on-board with smears led by the Times, and never make any effort to inform their readers/viewers of the journalistic mendacity being practiced by the fake newspaper of record. Last night, Jan Crawford at CBS News had apparently had enough of this nonsense.

Crawford, in a report aired on the CBS Evening News, reported on the Times’s correction, and went even further, noting the following:

Oh. Gosh, that’s kind of important information, too, isn’t it? This bit of explosive, real news also gets passing mention in the book by the fake Times reporters, but was naturally excluded from their piece in the Times. The news about Leland Keyser putting the lie to Blasey Ford’s original put-up smear is, in fact, the only real “news” contained in the book at all.

So, here we have the anatomy of the classic fake news media smear as led by the New York Times.

– When your first massive effort to smear the subject during his nominating process failed to bring its desired result, have two of your fakest reporters collaborate on a book that rehashes the original smears but supplements them with “new” information that isn’t new at all.

– When they stumble across one bit of actual real news that would be bombshell evidence of the subject’s actual innocence related to the original smear, bury it in the book and hope no one actually reads it.

– Then have your fake reporters pen a story for your newspaper and make sure they don’t mention the real news in it and exclude key facts that would also serve to exonerate the subject.

– Take that story to print, and when you get caught excluding the key information, wait at least 48 hours before issuing a half-assed “correction” that no one will read.

As long as everyone else in the fake news media is on-board with the new smear effort, you’re golden. Conservative outlets like The Federalist and Fox News don’t matter because your own readers/viewers will just dismiss them out of hand.

Foolproof, right? And CBS news, whose own “news” division is mostly just a bunch of toadies who do little but parrot DNC talking points and rehash stories printed by the Times and the Washington Post each day, is basically the last competing outlet you’d expect to give up the ghost.

But there’s Jan Crawford, bringing the Times’s fake chickens home to roost. Who knows why? Maybe Times Editor Dean Baquet pissed somebody off.

Regardless, good for Ms. Crawford for her decision to be a real journalist, at least for one day. I bet it feels good for her to be reporting the truth for a change.

The Democrat/media propaganda complex is going to need a new smear.

That is all.

What You Need to Know About the Attacks on Saudi Arabia

Today’s Energy Update
(Because Energy Fuels Our Lives)

Crude oil prices closed today up about 15%. They escalated throughout the day as it became increasingly obvious that the production outages in Saudi Arabia will likely continue for weeks, and as rhetoric between the U.S., Iran and Saudi continued to become more heated. How many weeks the Saudi outages will last is anyone’s guess.

You should expect prices to continue to rise until – and if – the situation calms down and we have hard information indicating Saudi production is being restored.

In case you missed my story at Forbes.com linked and excerpted below, this is the largest sudden outage of crude production in world history, even larger than the Arab Oil embargoes of the 1970s.

It’s a big deal.

Excerpt:

Here are a dozen things everyone should know about the past weekend’s strikes on a major Saudi oil refinery, and the likely fallout from them:

  • The Houthis, a rebel army fighting against Saudi-led interests in Yemen, claimed credit for launching the attacks on Saturday. However, the U.S. government now says it believes the assault was launched from Iran, and that it may have involved cruise missiles rather than drones.
  • The strikes centered on Saudi Arabia’s Abqaiq refinery. Abqaiq is the world’s largest oil refinery, processing about two-thirds of the total Saudi supply each day. Saudi Arabia is the world’s second-largest producer of crude oil behind the United States.
  • Several large Saudi oil fields were also attacked. Those attacks, along with the disruption of the Abqaiq refinery required the Saudi government to shut-in about half of its current production, or about 5.7 million barrels of oil per day.
  • According to the U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA), that amounts to the single biggest sudden disruption on record, more than the loss of Kuwaiti and Iraqi supply during the Gulf War in August 1990, and the 1979 decrease in Iranian output following the Islamic Revolution.

You Are a Child, Robert Francis O’Rourke

Today’s Campaign Update
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Give him credit, the dude knows how to get attention. – Irish Bob O’Rourke has always been an attention-seeker, and he’s always been good at it.

From his college career as a furry drunk-driving punk rocker and inept burglar, to his do-nothing terms in congress, to his failed challenge of Ted Cruz in 2018 to his rumblin’ stumblin’ bumblin’ three-time-re-booted presidential campaign, Irish Bob has always been able to gain the attention of an eager fake news media, the public and his opponents. The problem for him, his long-suffering parents and now his political party has been that his efforts to grab attention seem to pretty much always end in failure, often in disaster.

The past few days have provided a prime example of O’Rourke getting an unwarranted level of attention that will almost certainly redound disastrously for the Democrat Party. Think about it: Here is a guy who is barely averaging 2% in the national polling who yet again became the major topic of conversation on the Sunday morning talk shows. It all started last Thursday during the latest Democrat debate when O’Rourke uttered the threat, “Hell, yes we are going to take your AR-15, your AK-47.”

Call it the threat heard round the world. In making that threat, that “we” are coming for your guns, and having not one single other person on that stage rebut him, O’Rourke overtly committed not only himself but all the other contenders for the Democrat Party’s presidential nomination to doing what every gun owner in America has always known the leftists ultimately want to do, which is coming to get our guns.

That, after all, is the most important step in the creation of a fascist state, which is something the Democrat Party has been working diligently towards for the last century now. Fascist thuggery requires a docile, disarmed public, and Democrats from Franklin Roosevelt to George McGovern to Dianne Feinstein to Barack Obama to Bernie Sanders have been hinting around about gun confiscation for decades now, while always being careful to couch it in deceptive talking points designed to convince voters that it’s just baby steps, that they’re not coming for ALL of your guns and besides, it’s all for your own good.

But not Irish Bob. Irish Bob needed attention to try to re-re-re-re-boot his flailing campaign one more time, so he just blurted it out, right there on live national television. O’Rourke made a modest effort to sort of walk back his remarks on Sunday, but too late: The jack-booted cat is out of the bag now, and there’s no going back.

Delaware Senator Chris Coons gets it: “I’m a gun owner,” Coons said Friday in an interview on CNN. “My sons and I have gone skeet shooting and hunting and, frankly, I don’t think having our presidential candidates, like Congressman O’Rourke did, say that we’re going to try and take people’s guns against their will is a wise either policy or political move. That that clip will be played for years at Second Amendment rallies with organizations that try to scare people by saying Democrats are coming for your guns.”

Yes, it will. Because that’s what the Democrats ultimately will be doing if they ever regain full power in Washington.

Preacher Pete Buttigieg echoed Coons’s comments on CNN later on Sunday afternoon. You can bet other Democrats confronted with Irish Bob’s attention-seeking comments will be doing the same as their Party desperately attempts to crawfish its way back under cover of its deceptive talking points this week.

Irish Bob’s real problem is that he is still a child emotionally. He was probably largely ignored by his parents as a toddler, and figured out he could get their attention by throwing fits. Even in his mid-40s, he is still that 10 year-old brat at the beach who sits and watches as three other kids spend an hour carefully building a sand castle and then rushes in to kick it down just as they’re about to be finished.

In the wake of the tragic El Paso shootings in August, the shameless opportunist has now tried both approaches to bring attention onto himself. First, he decided the best way to exploit the tragedy was to be the loudest Democrat blaming it all on President Donald Trump. He figured the best way to be the focus of attention would be to drop a lot of F-Bombs while branding the President as a “white supremacist.”

When that third re-booting of his campaign by tossing a toddler fit didn’t work out for him amidst the cacophony of fellow Democrats deploying the same strategy, he realized he had to re-group. That was when he landed on the strategy of kicking down the gun confiscation sand castle his Party has spent a century constructing.

And just like that, with one nationally-televised kick of Irish Bob’s boot, that sand castle of deception has been washed away with the tide.

GOP Congressman Briscoe Cain got it right on Friday when he told O’Rourke, “You are a child, Robert Francis.”

Emotionally, that is absolutely true. But once again, Irish Bob the child got his attention, and that’s all that matters to him.

That is all.
