It’s a RINO Stampede in the U.S. Senate Now

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

The Democrats continued to play out the Kavanaugh playbook in the Senate trial Monday morning, when they introduced their new star witness:

Image may contain: one or more people, eyeglasses and closeup

[Hat tip to whatever creative mind concocted this mashup.]

Yes, friends, meet Dr. Christine Blasey Bolton, the “surprise” witness the New York Times is desperately attempting to get inserted into this senate trial. As I pointed out in this morning’s piece, the Times’ “bombshell” reporting on Bolton’s book manuscript – which conveniently went up for pre-sale on Amazon about an hour after the Times’ piece was published – is designed specifically to put pressure on Senate RINOs to prolong this Democrat scam for several more weeks by agreeing with Democrats to call Bolton, and only Bolton, as a witness.

This tactic was as predictable as Chris Wallace’s liberal hackery, a veritable instant replay of the coordinated efforts by the very same Times reporters and their Democrat masters to insert the execrable liar Christine Blasey Ford into the Brett Kavanaugh confirmation process, just when it appeared certain he had the votes necessary to be confirmed. It’s like page 7 of the official Democrat/Media playbook.

Equally predictable have been the reactions by the three most likely RINO Usual Suspects, Mitt Romney, Susan Collins and Lisa Murkowski.

Romney, who has been actively looking for any pretense to side with his Democrat pals, jumped almost immediately, telling a CNN reporter early Monday morning this:

“I can’t begin to tell you how John Bolton’s testimony would ultimately play on a final decision but it’s relevant and therefore I’d like to hear it.”

Ok, yeah, sure, uh-huh. Romney, by the way, refused to say whether or not he would also support calling witnesses the Trump defense would like to see, like Joe Biden, Hunter Biden and Pencil Neck. Mitt gonna Mitt. Which is kind of like saying a dog is going to lick its own nether regions.

Next up was Susan Collins, the terminally annoying Senator from Maine. As is her habit, Collins issued a statement that had been carefully crafted by her staff talking points monkeys, which revealed her own weak-kneed posture and smeared her GOP colleagues by claiming “a number” of them were having second thoughts as well:

“The reports about John Bolton’s book strengthen the case for witnesses and have prompted a number of conversations among my colleagues,” Collins said in a statement.

Collins, who unlike Romney is up for re-election this year, apparently believes she finds strength by pretending to hide among “numbers.” She’s wrong.

Murkowski did what Murkowski pretty much always does, and vainly attempted to find a way to triangulate her way through it with this mushy non-answer:

“I stated before that I was curious as to what John Bolton might have to say … I’ve also said there is an appropriate time for us to evaluate whether we need additional information —that time is almost here,” Murkowski said in a statement.

So, the more pressure the corrupt media applied on behalf of the Democrats, the more weaselly these three will inevitably become. Collins found the courage to do the right thing in the case of Kavanaugh, but that was two full years before she had to stand for re-election. With November looming just 10 months away, you would not want to bet the family farm on her acting with similar integrity now.

Sadly, she is probably the strongest of the three. Romney hates the President and will do pretty much anything he believes will damage this administration, without regard for the good of the country. Murkowski will do whatever her focus groups tell her to do at the end of the day. Collins is really the only semi-independent actor of the bunch.

Of course, Mitch McConnell can lose those three and still have 50 votes to deny the Democrats the ability to call witnesses. The big question here is whether the media pressure can convince a fourth RINO to jump in bed with the enemy.

The two who have been targeted by the media are Cory Gardner of Colorado and Lamar Alexander of Tennessee. Gardner has been a pretty solid Trump supporter, but appears vulnerable here because he is facing a very tough re-election campaign himself against former Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper. But it’s hard to see how voting with the Democrats on this question would help Gardner’s chances in November, so if the Times is counting on him, they’re probably pissing up a tree.

Alexander is supposed to be somehow malleable on this because he is a “Senate traditionalist,” which I find to be a bizarre argument. No one is more of a “traditionalist” than Mitch McConnell, who practically lives and breathes Senate tradition, and you don’t see the media speculating about him.

Outside of those two, it becomes very hard to imagine who that fourth vote might be. The Times and Democrats are most likely going to have to conspire to spring another Kavanaugh-like surprise on the Senate in order to get to their 4-RINO goal.

The stampede is on, but it isn’t quite big enough to break through that fence line just yet.

That is all.

Rudy Giuliani is a National Treasure

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

America’s Mayor has the real story about Obama-era corruption in Ukraine. – Rudy Giuliani is currently the subject of an ongoing smear campaign by the Democrats and their corrupt media toadies.

This is not surprising given the fact that the former U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York has spent most of the last year investigating the rampant corrupt in Ukraine committed by Joe Biden and various other high-ranking Democrats and their ne’er-do-well children. Smearing the messenger has always been the standard response by the Democrat/media complex whenever any investigator is hovering right over the target. Just ask Attorney General William Barr as a recent example.

New York Democrat Jabba the Nadler is so concerned about Giuliani that he actually spent part of his disgraceful testimony in last week’s impeachment trial smearing the Mayor. In an appearance on Fox News with host Judge Jeanine Pirro, Giuliani was given a chance to respond. The result was epic and hilarious.

Here’s the clip, followed by a transcript:

 

Here’s The Transcript:

Giuliani: …[Biden took] millions of dollars out of Ukraine, totally corruptly. Biden was involved in two massive bribes. Solschefsky bribed him, he bribed Poroschenko, he disgraced the United States of America, and Nadler should be ashamed for covering up for him.

Biden also did the same thing in Iraq, where he was point man, and his brother got a piece of a $1.5 billion housing project. And he did the same thing in China when he was point man, and the kid [Hunter] got a $1.5 billion investment from China in a hedge fund for himself, [John] Kerry’s kid, and Whitey Bulger’s nephew.

Biden is so dirty that you and I would have had him indicted 6 months ago. And Nadler is doing what a hack Democrat usually does – he’s covering up for a crook. I don’t care if he [Biden] was vice president, I don’t care if he’s running for president of the United States.

I’ll say it straight out: Joe Biden is a crook, and he sold out the United States of America in Iraq, in Ukraine, in China. And if we can’t prosecute him, we don’t have justice in America.

Judge Jeanine: Ok, now there is a sound [bite] where he [Nadler] says with Ambassador Yovanovitch out of the way the first chapter of the Ukraine scheme is complete. Giuliani and his agents could now apply direct pressure to Ukraine government to spread the falsehood. And who benefitted? Who sent Mr. Giuliani in the first place? And then, you know, he does the old ‘what did the President know and when did he know it” [crosstalk]

Giuliani: He’s a big jackass. C’mon. All you gotta do is look at him and listen to him. He’s a big jackass. He’s a hack politician who repeats whatever Democratic line there is, and half the time he’s lying his head off.

The fact is, he’s covering up a massive scandal at the highest levels of the United States government and the Ukrainian government. The Vice President of the United States corrupted the President of the Ukraine…

Judge: …he seems to be getting away with it…

Giuliani: …well, because he’s got all the media on his side. They don’t wanna deal with the fact, I’ll say it one more time: Joe Biden has been a big crook for most of his career.

Every time Joe Biden was a “point man,” you know what happened? The Biden family made millions, and America got sold out.

[End]

You have to love that.

Giuliani promises to gradually release the evidence he has accumulated to back up his claims on his website starting this week. The Democrat toadies in the corrupt news media will alternatively ignore whatever the Mayor releases, or spin it as best they can, all the while continuing to smear the messenger. Because that is what our corrupt news media does.

Don’t fall for the smears and pay close attention to the facts: Because, in the history of the U.S. Justice Department, there have been few people who knew how to accumulate and present damning facts against career criminals as well as Rudy Giuliani.

That is all.

The New York Times Sets the Final, Desperate Impeachment Deep State Narrative

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

The New York Times makes a final desperate play in its role as bullhorn for the Deep State. – Ok, so, this was inevitable: After the White House defense team devastated the Democrats’ impeachment scam with a simple recitation of the actual facts at hand on Saturday, the corrupt hacks at the New York Times publish yet another narrative-setter on behalf of their political party of choice.

The writers of the piece are Hillary Clinton tool Maggie Haberman and Obama hack Michael Schmidt, which is really pretty much all you need to know as far as the slant the piece takes, and the utter lack of any shred of journalistic integrity it involves. As is typical of this kind Deep State support news-fakery, the piece names not a single source, relying instead only on “multiple people,” a fact that is not revealed until the fourth paragraph.

Oh, yeah, and the fact that no one – not one single person – at the New York Times has actually seen the manuscript, written by former national security advisor John Bolton, is not revealed until … well, it’s not revealed anywhere in the piece at all. The piece contains no quotes from the alleged Bolton manuscript, because the Times has not seen the book.

The Times does reveal that the manuscript was submitted to the White House for pre-clearance by the National Security Council, which we know is filled with Deep State Obama plants, and which has been a leak factory since Day One of this administration. The NSC also provided both the fake “whistleblower” – Eric Ciaramella – and his buddy Alexander Vindman to serve as the catalysts for the impeachment scam.

Bolton’s spokesperson claims that single copy submitted to the White House is the one and only copy the publisher has distributed to anyone:

Hey, let’s all guess where these leaks originate from. When you learn that all publication clearances by the NSC are signed off on by Yevgeny Vindman, the twin brother of Alexander Vindman, it isn’t that hard, is it?

So, what does the Bolton book claim? From the Times’ piece:

President Trump told his national security adviser in August that he wanted to continue freezing $391 million in security assistance to Ukraine until officials there helped with investigations into Democrats including the Bidens, according to an unpublished manuscript by the former adviser, John R. Bolton.

The president’s statement as described by Mr. Bolton could undercut a key element of his impeachment defense: that the holdup in aid was separate from Mr. Trump’s requests that Ukraine announce investigations into his perceived enemies, including former Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr. and his son Hunter Biden, who had worked for a Ukrainian energy firm while his father was in office.

Take away the inflammatory rhetoric and Democrat-narrative framing predictably added in by Haberman and Schmidt, and you have the President telling Bolton exactly what his legal team told the Senate: That the President was doing his job, waiting on releasing the aid to Ukraine – perfectly legal under his constitutional authority and the law – until he was sure that the new Ukrainian President, Volodymyr Zelensky was a good actor who was going to work to investigate and punish corruption by American actors in his country.

Remember that we have Joe Biden on video, admitting to literally bribing the previous Ukrainian government in 2016 to fire the prosecutor who was investigating his son’s company. The Democrats’ entire impeachment scam hinges on the argument that Biden is somehow exempt from any investigation into his outright thuggery while serving as Vice President simply because he now happens to be a candidate for the party’s presidential nomination. Sorry, but that cat don’t flush.

Back to the NSC: It is very likely that the Times’ corrupt reporters have been in possession of their information for several weeks, and waited until this moment to release this report, right before the Trump team is about to resume its defense arguments in the Senate trial. How can we be fairly sure of this? Because of this little-noticed Daily Mail story from January 17, title ” Donald Trump’s top Russia expert on National Security Council is ‘escorted off the White House grounds amid a security investigation’:

President Donald Trump’s top Russia expert on the National Security Counsel is reportedly on leave pending a security investigation.

Andrew Peek, the NSC’s senior director for European and Russian affairs, was escorted from the White House grounds on Friday, two people familiar with the matter told Bloomberg.

Peek had been in the NSC role for just two months, after most recently working as a deputy assistant secretary of state with responsibility for Iran and Iraq.

He replaced Tim Morrison, who left the position after testifying in the House impeachment inquiry.

What do you suppose that “security investigation” involved? If you answered “probably leaks to Haberman and Schmidt,” you win the gold medal.

Naturally, both House and Senate Democrats immediately – within bare moments – responded to the Times report on their Twitter accounts with strikingly similar talking points. Why, it’s almost as if they were working in coordination with Haberman and Schmidt. Because they were.

The President responded a few hours later with tweets of his own:

and

This narrative-setting “report” from the Times creates the echo chamber the rest of the media will use throughout the next two days. Every on-air “analysis” from Democrat media toadies on CNN, MSNBC and the broadcast networks will be viewed through the prism of this story. This story provides all of the corrupt reporters the pretext for ignoring the arguments presented by the President’s defense team, and now will be used to hammer the RINO Usual Suspects – Murkowski, Collins, Romney, etc. – into voting with the senate Democrats to prolong the trial.

And it’s not just the RINOs: The Times also has an op/ed piece this morning advocating that Chief Justice John Roberts issue subpoenas for witnesses under his own authority. The piece is written by two leftist Georgetown professors and 83 year-old former Oklahoma congressman Mickey Edwards, another RINO who presumably needed a pay day.

These pressure points are the intention, of course, the result of the carefully-coordinated plan between the Democrats and their activists in our fake news media.

It’s all very transparent to anyone paying close attention. Unfortunately, very few Americans – and very few of the Senators – have really been paying close attention.

That is all.

Why There Will be no Witnesses in This Senate Trial

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

Don’t count on hearing from Hunter Biden or the fake whistleblower, folks. – Adam Schiff, in his closing arguments Friday night, pounded the final nail into the coffin on the question of whether any witnesses will ultimately be called in this national disgrace of a Senate trial against President Donald Trump.

In the  midst of repeating himself for about the 256th time over the past three days, ol’ Bugeyes made the mistake of tossing in something new, referring to a completely false CBS News report, citing only a “Trump confidant” – which could mean the Mooch – alleging that GOP senators were warned “Vote against the president and your head will be on a pike.” Many witnesses present in the Senate chamber said that audible gasps could be heard throughout the room, including from some of Pencil Neck’s own House colleagues:

More to the point, Schiff’s reference to an obvious piece of despicable fake news pissed off some of the key GOP RINOs he had supposedly been trying to influence to vote in favor of calling witnesses during this trial, including Lisa Murkowski…:

…and Susan Collins:

Now, Collins and Murkowski are perpetually malleable as they tirelessly do their best to remain “open-minded” to siding with Democrats on an array of issues, but Schiff just handed them an ironclad reason to hold firm with their own Party for once. Now, when they go home to face their constituents and are asked why they voted not to call witnesses, they can simply recite Pencil Neck’s outright lying and utter lack of good faith as their justification.

Of course, the reality is that the Democrats in the Senate have been bluffing about calling witnesses all along. Doing so would prolong this disgrace for many weeks, given that any subpoenas would inevitably be challenged in federal court, and nobody wants that, not even Chuck Schumer’s imaginary, chair-stealing friend.

The senators involved in the presidential primaries – The Commie, Lieawatha, Amy Klobuchar and some guy from Colorado named Bennett – most certainly don’t want to spend several months tied up in the Senate chamber in what they all know to be a sham impeachment trial. So there was never really going to be any “deal” on calling witnesses to begin with, something Schumer basically admitted in a rare moment of candor on Thursday.

For Schumer and his Democrat senate caucus, this sham trial has been far more about establishing narratives for the Fall general election campaigns against vulnerable GOP senators than it has been about actually winning any votes or calling any witnesses. That has been clear from the start.

Given all of this, here’s the timetable we should anticipate as this impeachment scam winds down:

  • Starting today, the Trump defense team will present a very detailed rebuttal case;
  • That rebuttal case will not consume the defense’s entire 24 hours of floor time – expect Trump’s team to wrap up either Monday evening or early afternoon on Tuesday, much to the relief of the exhausted senators;
  • The defense will file a motion to dismiss immediately following its closing arguments;
  • The Democrat House Managers will file an alternative motion to call additional witnesses;
  • At least 52 GOP senators, and possibly all 53 of them, will vote to dismiss without calling any witnesses. Democrats Doug Jones of Alabama and/or Joe Manchin of West Virginia will likely join them;

The entire disgusting and disgraceful process will be blessedly over by COB on Thursday.

And then the Democrats – with the full support of the nation’s corrupt news media – will move onto the next scam in their never-ending coup d’etat.

They will never stop, until the voters stop them.

That is all.

Conservatives Should Watch Tulsi Gabbard and Learn

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

You go, Tulsi. – I’ve consistently called Tulsi Gabbard one of the two actual interesting candidates in the Democrat presidential field, along with Andrew Yang. That’s not because I agree with either of those two about much, but because they are the only two people in the race who actually speak their own minds rather than just parroting talking points written and handed to them by staffers on any given day.

Of course, the relative independence of mind displayed by Gabbard is one of the main reasons why she and Yank literally had zero chance of really becoming any kind of force in the race, since the Democrat nominee will ultimately be decided either by a brianwashed voter base or, in the case of a split convention, the party bosses who brainwashed them.

All that having been said, I greeted the news that Gabbard had sued the pantsuit off the Pantsuit Princess this week with great joy and amusement. Gabbard is seeking $50 million in damages for the Coughing Crook’s allegation that the Hawaii Congresswoman and Major in the Army National Guard is a “Russian agent.” Of course, this is an accusation that the Grasping Grifter has leveled at a wide array of her tormentors since her 2016 campaign went down in flames, one so scurrilous that no one outside of the corrupt news media takes it seriously.

But obviously was highly offended by the Hacking Hag’s accusation, which was made a few months ago, and initially responded by demanding a retraction. Since that was not forthcoming, she decided to file a defamation suit, and it’s hard to blame her for doing so.

Good for her. While she probably has little chance of prevailing, this is a tactic that more people who are attacked by Democrat politicians and their media toadies need to be employing. There needs to be a cost for this kind of scurrilous behavior, and the only way to really cost these people is through their pocketbooks. If nothing else, Gabbard’s litigation will cost the Fainting Felon thousands of dollars in attorney’s fees.

And hey, if the other side thinks you’re getting some traction with the court, they may even offer to settle for millions, as CNN recently did in the defamation suit brought by Nicholas Sandmann and the Covington Catholic school. $25 million is real money for a fake news network that barely registers in the ratings anymore.

This is the kind of thing Republicans need to be doing – finding creative ways to exact a cost from the Democrats and their media hacks for all the outright lies they continue to spread. Every member of the Trump family and Trump cabinet should have defamation suits filed against CNN and MSNBC and their on-air talent like Fredo Cuomo and Rachel Maddow.

After all, the Democrats have zero reservations whatsoever using government money to hire highly-paid lawyers to corrupt our political system; witness the way they have used a vast team of Lawfare-affiliated contract lawyers to concoct and manage their impeachment scam against President Trump. The Democrats have also used the Lawfare people to tie up major Presidential executive orders and regulatory actions in the courts for months on end throughout this administration. It’s a very effective tactic, even though they pretty much always lose in the end, when the anti-constitutional decisions issued by their Obama-appointee federal judges generally get overturned by appellate courts or the Supreme Court. The bad guys lost again this week with the finalization of the Administration’s revised Waters of the United States regulation, but delay is the goal.

On the conservative side, however, things are different. Other than the various defamation suits brought by Sandmann and his lawyers, the most visible efforts to use the courts to police Democrat abuses come from the folks at Judicial Watch. Judicial Watch leader Tom Fitton and his folks do great work, but it’s like a David vs. Goliath battle that’s being fought in that arena.

Conservatives simply must become more active in this area and develop an effective counter-strategy to Lawfare’s activities, if only as a defensive strategy in the event of the election of another Democrat to the presidency. As things stand today, Democrat politicians and their toadies in the corrupt media are free to make any accusation they want, no matter how scurrilous and unfounded it may be, without consequence.

Ironically, Tulsi Gabbard, a Democrat presidential candidate, and Nick Sandmann, a high school student, are trying to show them the way. Is anyone watching and learning?

That is all.

Democrat House Managers Leave the Door Wide Open for the Trump Legal Team

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

The Democrat/media/Deep State Axis of Propaganda is in full swing. – Watch as former Clinton bag man and career propagandist George Stephanopoulous gets caught live on air attempting to cut off video feed of Trump Lawyer Jay Sekulow debunking the Democrats’ impeachment scam:

This is what Republicans are always up against with the corrupt news media. It’s been this way pretty much since the advent of television, in fact. So, while ABC/NBC/CBS/CNN/MSNBC have shown us play-by-play of the entirety of the Democrats’ ridiculous impeachment scam, with hour upon hour of Adam Schiff, Jabba the Nadler and the other house manager freak show guest stars, you can bet you will not see the same kind of wall-to-wall coverage of the Trump legal team presenting its case.

But that’s just part of the deal here. The Trump legal team is staffed with guys like Sekulow who know all of that and will be prepared.

And here’s the thing: That legal team has a golden opportunity to completely outshine the house managers and their endless repetition of a set of arguments so specious that any real judge would laugh them out of court. Schiff and company were out of new things to say about mid-day on Wednesday. Since then, their strategy has been to pound on the same array of stupidity and dishonesty over and over again, which has to be grating on the nerves of even the Democrat senators at this point.

So what are they doing to do today? Repeat the same old nonsense several more times, in an effort to make their pitifully inconsequential case appear to be more beefy by consuming the entire 24 hours allotted to them under the rule adopted for this trial. There are a lot of people in the Senate who are grumpy by nature – the house managers won’t want to be anywhere near them when they are finally done with this mindless Kabuki dance.

The President’s legal team will no doubt begin their part of this show on Saturday by offering a simple motion to dismiss, given that the Democrats have yet again utterly failed to demonstrate any real wrongdoing by President Trump. Assuming that motion fails – which at this point may or may not be a safe assumption – Trump’s lawyers should make their rebuttal case as vigorously and as efficiently as possible.

If it takes 24 hours to fully make that case, then fine, take the full 24 hours. But if the case can fully be made in 18 hours, or 12 hours, or 6 hours without the actual facts and arguments having to be repeated over and over again, then rest the case in 18 or 12 or 6 hours. Don’t make Chuck Schumer have to argue with the imaginary friend who keeps taking his chair any longer than he has to, and you might even pick up some votes to acquit by some of the Democrats’ nursing home contingent, like Pat Leahy and Dianne Feinstein.

Bottom line here: The Democrats are intent on taking their full 24 hours for the literal sake of filling 24 hours of time. President Trump’s legal team should take the time it really takes to make their case, and then let it rest.

That is all.

Tom Beck: Time to Diversify Investments and Trim Positions

Guest piece from Tom Beck of Portfolio Wealth Global

The FIRST chart I’m about to show you, if you spend 15 minutes dissecting it, will lead you to understand that unless there’s a MAGIC FORMULA to continue making superior returns, we are NEAR a market event that is akin to being thrown off a raging bull.

Bank of America tracks 20 metrics, going back decades, which show whether or not stocks are expensive and overvalued.

At this point, only ONE of the twenty is not screaming BUBBLE, while a total of nineteen, or 95% of measures, are SHOUTING to beware.

Take a close look:

Courtesy: Zerohedge.com

Some of these metrics go back to the 1950s, so we’re looking at valuations from the time of the gold standard, the cold war, the Vietnam War, the oil shock, the 1990s bubble, the 2000s real estate nightmare and anything in between; this is INSANITY!

What the bulls continue saying is that the jobs market is still healthy and that there’s no incentive to be invested in commodities, since tech is where the growth is.

While that may be true, the VALUATIONS have reached such disproportion that you’re simply asking for it, if you’re not managing risk by diversifying and trimming down positions.


Courtesy: Zerohedge.com

It’s clear to see that there’s a PROBLEM with the bullish stance, then. After years of upward momentum in the employment numbers, we’re seeing the seeds of a hiring slowdown, which don’t signal the end, but forewarn that it is CLOSE BY.

Job openings plummeted by the biggest number since The Financial Crisis and just had their worst year since 2008.

The thing is that the RICH simply have an INCREDIBLE amount of wealth to deploy. As a whole, they don’t know what to do with it. The financial recovery, fueled by easy money policy, has allowed the wealthy to accumulate so much money that even after they have put all the money they’re willing to risk in the markets to work, they STILL have billions to send in the way of bond funds!

Courtesy: Zerohedge.com

While the average person is gasping for air, trying to find comfort in the fact that he even has a steady job and is able to provide for his family, the wealthy are clueless as to how to make their excess funds work for them.

That disparity will reach a boiling point in a slowdown, where the rich continue to flock to vacation spots and go out to fancy dinners and buy exotic cars, while the majority are out on the street.

If you want to point the finger, send your complaints to 33 Liberty St, New York, NY 10045, United States, where the Federal Reserve is scheming away.

Courtesy: Zerohedge.com

We are under the impression that the Federal Reserve will NOT be tightening their interest rate policy, nor shrinking their balance sheet in a material way EVER AGAIN!

The world’s financial system simply cannot withstand a recession; it has become dependent on central banks and never-ending credit. It is in a DANGEROUS position.

It reminds me of the movie Speed, with Keanu Reeves and Sandra Bullock, where the bus had to stay over 50 MPH for the bomb not to explode.

That’s the way things are right now. You can’t slow down the bus, but you also can’t unload the passengers, since this is not a Hollywood action flick; it’s real life.

Schiff Reveals Democrats’ Real Goal: Destroy U.S. Elections

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

Ol’ Bugeyes just let the cat out of the bag. – One of the main long term goals held by the Democrat Party for the past century now has been to destroy the validity of elections in the United States, as they strive to enact their longed-for Soviet-style utopia.

We have seen them ramp that effort up to epic proportions in the 21st century, as they have consistently refused to accept the validity of any Republican victory, variously blaming negative outcomes on fantasy-based “voter suppression” or interference by the Russians. The party’s leaders and their toadies in the corrupt, fake news media have spent the last four years trying to convince the American public that Vladimir Putin actually chose our president in 2016, a narrative that enabled – along with massive voter fraud efforts – the Ds to attain their House majority in 2018.

Last night, Adam Schiff took things an inevitable step forward, declaring the 2020 presidential election to be invalid in advance. Watch this:

Ok, so, something as important as choosing who the next President of the United states will be is just too important to be left to mere voting citizens. In the world of Adam Schiff and his fellow depraved Democrats, that task must now be left up to a jury of 100 senators, half of whom are too brain-addled to know where they are half the time.

While Liz Wheeler is appropriately astonished at Schiff’s audacity, we all need to understand that all Bugeyes is doing here is reciting the official position and favored narrative of the national Democrat Party, whose overarching goal has been to literally destroy the foundations of the American Republic since at least 1932. Schiff’s remarks – which will come to be the Democrat mantra leading up to the November elections – are designed to set the stage and rhetorical pretext for the massive civil unrest and rioting they plan to unleash in advance and in the wake of a second Trump victory.

The Democrats and their media toadies are normally pretty adept at hiding their real, true goals from the public. But every once in a while, they let the mask slip.

This is one of those times. Take Mr. Schiff at his word, and understand he is speaking on behalf of one of America’s two major political parties.

That is all.

Only an Incredibly Shallow Society Could Produce this Impeachment Scam

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

The assisted living senators are not dealing well with these long hours. – The U.S. Senate has, more than at any other time in its history, become a home for elderly citizens during the 21st Century. This is in large part due to the fact that it has also more and more become a place to accumulate massive amounts of wealth at the expense of the U.S. taxpayer in recent decades. No one wants to voluntarily leave the gig when there’s always so much more wealth to be grafted.

Thus, this ongoing Kabuki dance of an impeachment trial takes place in what is basically an incredibly wealthy assisted living center. It is becoming increasingly obvious that the long days and late nights are already beginning to take a toll as the silliness enters its third day today. California’s 86 year-old Senator Dianne Feinstein decided she’d had enough of the nonsense as Bug-eyed Adam Schiff droned on late last night, and just got up and left a full hour before the Senate was adjourned:

 

Virginia Senator Mark Warner, kind of a Senate kindergartener at age 66, was reported to have fallen asleep during Schiff’s lie-filled monologue:

Image

Senate Minority leader Chuck Schumer – a veritable spring chicken of the Democrat caucus at age 69 – has begun exhibiting clear signs of not being all there mentally. Watch as he shooos an imaginary person out of his chair as he returns from a bathroom break:

Seriously, you can’t make this stuff up. Think about this: These are the people who are governing this country right now. Frightening.

But hey, even though the Senators were having a hard time holding their eyes open or avoiding twice-hourly potty breaks during Schiff’s hours of bleating, the guy who bills himself on Twitter as a “national security correspondent” for the Washington Post developed a clear man crush on ol’ Bugeyes:

Can’t wait to hear Greg Miller’s true feelings about Jabba the Nadler or Patrick Leahy. Maybe Netflix will turn the “national security correspondent’s” diary into a 10-episode mini-series.

Of course, the subject matter being considered in this impeachment scam is so utterly and moronically trivial that it’s no wonder the Senators can’t keep their eyes open or hold their bowels. My wife and I are spending this week on a cruise ship filled with people from all over the world, and all I have been able to think about as we have interacted with folks from various other nations is how picayunish this absurd spectacle truly is.

For example, in chatting with our waiter last night, we learned he is a Kurd. He put on a happy face because he is really good at his job, but think about what someone who spends 10 of his 12 months each year working night and day on a gigantic ship and worrying about what might be happening to his family back home must think about how utterly superficial American politics have become.

Before dinner, we spent time in a bar talking with a wonderful group of citizens of Trinidad and Tobago. We talked about current events in their country, which is really struggling economically right now, as well as the collapse of Venezuela and the massive recent oil discoveries off the coasts of nearby Suriname and Guyana, which they are all hoping might positively impact their own island nation.

On this cruise, we have met people from France, where the massive “yellow vest” protests have now been ongoing for 55 weeks, and largely ignored by the U.S. news media. There are similar protest movements taking place all over Europe and South America and Asia right now, and the “national security correspondent” for the WaPo is Tweeting out his love for a pathological liar who has had our own politics tied up hyper-analyzing an innocuous 20-minute phone call that happened 7 months ago.

On this cruise, we have met people from Russia and Croatia and the Phillipines and Hong Kong, all places in the throes of real human struggles of paramount importance, and our corrupt news media is focused on providing maximum exposure for an impeachment that’s like an episode of “Seinfeld,” a show about nothing.

Miller’s right about one thing: Schiff’s conduct of this impeachment scam will indeed leave a mark on history. That mark will be in the form of an indelible black ink stain on our nation’s legacy that can never be gotten out.

What an incredibly shallow society we have become.

That is all.
