Why Trump’s Sanctuary City Plan has Democrats so Enraged

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

Prepare for exploding Democrat heads all weekend long. – Smelling a golden opportunity handed to him by the Washington Post yesterday to keep an issue very favorable to him alive at the top of the news cycle this weekend, President Donald Trump (I never tire of typing those three glorious words) continued to push a plan to place all these tens of thousands of illegal aliens invading our Southern border into Democrat-run sanctuary cities with this tweet late Friday evening:

Given the left’s obsession with the President’s Twitter account, this single message alone most likely ensures that this topic will be first up on every Sunday morning fake news program. Regardless of how viciously the liberal talking heads attack President Trump on the issue, this will in fact amount to about five hours of free, favorable air time for the President and cause him to rise in the polls as a result. President Trump knows this, I know this, you know this, but it seems as if the vapid, TDS-enraged Democrats and their media co-conspirators will never figure it all out. I’m cool with that.

It’s important to understand why the Democrats and the fake news media are so enraged by this plan. The President may or may not be serious about it – that remains up in the air – but that really doesn’t much matter in the grand scheme of things. From the perspective of both President Trump and the Democrat leadership, it’s the simple fact of having the public debate over this idea that really matters, for a couple of big reasons.

I discussed one reason in last night’s Evening Campaign Update: The Democrats hate being forced to engage in this public discussion for the simple fact that it exposes the ultimate end game of their “sanctuary city” sham. Democrat mayors in Democrat-run cities from coast to coast have spent the last several years refusing to cooperate with ICE and other federal law enforcement agencies in a very organized effort to protect criminal illegal aliens who they view as ripe prospects for illegal voting in the near term. In the longer term, the Democrats hope these illegals will ultimately receive some sort of blanket amnesty and become a big, new voting bloc for their party.

Democrats don’t care if these criminal aliens are murderers or rapists – they truly don’t care. All they see and care about is potential votes, whether legal or illegal, because the overriding goal of the Democrat Party since the elevation of the Clintons has been simple: The acquisition and maintenance of political power.

Their problem with this public debate is that the President’s proposal makes all kinds of sense to anyone who is able to reason logically. This of course excludes mind-numbed Democrat voters, but they only make up about a third of the adult population. What frightens the Democrats and media so much is that independent voters are by and large able to reason logically, so when they hear this proposal, most of them think, “Ok, makes sense to me.” They then marvel that any Democrat politician, like San Fran Nan, whose own home city has been protecting murderers and rapists for over a decade now, would oppose it.

Oh, my, Democrats can’t have that, now, can they?

All of which leads to the second reason why the Democrats are so enraged by this plan: Because it negates their own long-term plan for placement of millions of illegal aliens into Republican and/or battleground states.

Starting in the Clinton Administration, the Democrat plan has been to keep as many illegals as possible in border “red” states like Texas and Arizona, so that when their longed-for amnesty comes about, those “red” states will suddenly turn into “blue” states. During the Obama years, that plan was broadened to include putting thousands of illegals onto planes and buses and shipping them to other “red” or borderline states like Michigan, Ohio, North Carolina, Colorado and Wisconsin for the same political ends.

They have almost gotten to critical mass now at which a blanket amnesty would in fact render all of those states – with the possible exception of Texas – as permanent Democrat states, making it virtually impossible for the GOP to ever elect another president.

This has been the long-term plan of the Democrat Party for a quarter of a century now. They cannot possibly conduct an honest public debate on the merits, so their immediate response is what we have seen: Have national Dems like Pelosi and Schumer and Beto and Mayor Pete demonize the President for his supposed “cruelty” in using all of these “innocent” illegals as “political pawns”, while the Democrat mayors of those sanctuary cities issue pious statements claiming that they would welcome such an influx into their already bankrupt towns as they pray to whatever god they might worship that it never happens.

Apparently, when President Trump broached this concept at a recent White House meeting a few weeks ago, it was quickly scuttled by then-Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen and her department’s lawyers. Nielsen simply lacked the intestinal fortitude to do what is necessary to stem this border invasion.

Kevin MacAleenan is now the acting Secretary of DHS. We may well find out very soon whether or not he has the stomach for the battle or not. This plan makes all kinds of good sense – which is why the Democrats and media are so outraged by it – and should be pursued by the President and his Administration in a very public and aggressive way.

Fill those sanctuary cities up with these invaders, Mr. Trump. Let the Democrats take full responsibility for their irrational sanctuary rhetoric. It will be a good lesson for all concerned.

That is all.

Trump Hoists Pelosi, Democrats on Their Own Sanctuary City Petard

The Evening Campaign Update
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

I swear, listening to these Democrats moan every day about whatever their preferred narrative happens to be is like watching Alice in Wonderland – up is down, boys are girls, treason is wonderful, spying is not spying, Ilhan Omar is a patriot Dan Crenshaw isn’t. It’s all so mind-numbingly tiresome.

Today’s big outrage came when the news-fakers at the Washington Post reported that President Trump had proposed in a White House meeting that we should take all the fake “asylum seekers” who are in fact not entitled to asylum at all but who we must let into the country thanks to Democrat laws enforced by Obama judges, and send them to all the Democrat-run sanctuary cities so that Democrats can care for their hoped-for new voter base.

Makes perfect sense to anyone with the ability to reason logically, and that, by the way, is exactly why Democrat leaders pitched such a fit.

The thing about the President’s proposal here is that it exposes the Democrats by taking their “sanctuary city” scam to its logical conclusion. After all, San Fran Nan is fond of calling illegal immigrants “little gifts from God,” so hey, let’s take the 100,000 “gifts” that God is apparently causing to swim the Rio Grande each month and bus them all to San Francisco and Oakland and Los Angeles and every other Democrat-run sanctuary city around the country.

That should make them all happy, right? Well, not to hear San Fran Nan tell it. She pitched such a fit before the cameras Friday afternoon that it looked for a moment she was going to break down in tears.

But wait: A couple of fake “journalists” who write for The Daily Beast online sham news site claimed later in the afternoon to have talked with a bunch of sanctuary mayors and found them to be just peachy keen with the President’s idea:

“The city would be prepared to welcome these immigrants just as we have embraced our immigrant communities for decades,” Philadelphia Mayor Jim Kenney told The Daily Beast in a statement.

Great! Put ’em on the first bus to Philly! Let’s have a caravan!

“As a welcoming city, we would welcome these migrants with open arms, just as we welcomed Syrian refugees, just as we welcomed Puerto Ricans displaced by Hurricane Maria and just as we welcome Rohingya refugees fleeing genocide in Myanmar,” said Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel in a statement.

Terrific! When’s the next Amtrak up to Chi-town?

“I am proud that Cambridge is a sanctuary city,” Mayor Marc McGovern of Cambridge, Massachusetts, told The Daily Beast. “Trump is a schoolyard bully who tries to intimidate and threaten people. I’m not intimidated and if asylum seekers find their way to Cambridge, we’ll welcome them.”

Awesome! Let’s ship them on the first American or United flight up to Taxachusetts!  Maybe we can get Fauxcahontas to come to the local shelter to recite her stories about her family’s fake Indian heritage – they’ll love that stuff!

During his show today, Rush Limbaugh did his best to make it sound as if the idea was just briefly floated at a White House brainstorming session, but not really given serious consideration and quickly discarded. But the President himself, no doubt smelling a prime opportunity to spend several days hoisting Pelosi and other Democrat leaders on their own petard, put the quietus to that notion later in the afternoon at a press availability, where he said, in part:

“The asylum laws are absolutely insane. They come up. In many cases, they’re rough gang members. In many cases, they’re people with tremendous crime records and they’re given a statement to read by lawyers that stand there waiting for them, “Read this statement.” And it says, “I have great fear for my life. I have great fear for being in my country.” Even though, in some cases, some of these people are holding their country’s flags and waving their country’s flags. And then they talk about the fear they have of being in the country — that the flag they were waving freely.

“So we are looking at the possibility — strongly looking at it, to be honest with you. California, the governor wants to have a lot of people coming in, refugees coming in. A lot of sanctuary cities. So we’ll give them to the sanctuary cities, maybe, to take care of, if that’s the way they want it — because we can only hold them, under the current law, for 20 days. So we apprehend them by the thousands and thousands a day.

“California certainly is always saying, “Oh, we want more people.” And they want more people in their sanctuary cities. Well, we’ll give them more people. We can give them a lot. We can give them an unlimited supply. And let’s see if they’re so happy. They say, “We have open arms.” They’re always saying they have open arms. Let’s see if they have open arms.

“The alternative is to change the laws, and we can do it very, very quickly, very easily. Okay?”

So, get ready, Democrat mayors – you asked for illegal aliens to protect, and Trump has tens of thousands of them to place in your cities. And now, unlike a week ago, he has a Homeland Security Secretary who just might be willing to carry out the plan.

That is all.

Mayor Pete Has Stolen Beto’s Media Date to the Dance

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

Why, what could possibly go wrong? – A team of Chinese scientists is grafting human genes into monkeys, in an effort to make them “smarter and more human-like.” I swear I don’t make this stuff up.

According to the report in the Business Recorder, “Researchers edited the human version of a gene known as ‘MCPH1’ into the macaques. The gene made the monkeys’ brain develop along a more human-like timelineThe gene-hacked monkeys showed better reaction times and improved short-term memories in comparison to their unaltered peers...”  I smell a sequel to “Plant of the Apes” in there somewhere.

In all seriousness, these monkeys should immediately announce their candidacy for the Democrat presidential nomination. They would smarter than half the field, better-behaved that Irish Bob O’Rourke, make a great target for Amy Klobuchar to vent her frustrations, and be far more “human-like” than Joe Biden or Bernie Sanders.

And speaking of Irish Bob O’Rourke… – Here’s the problem with being a media-created Democrat “Rising Star”: Everything tends to go to crap when the media inevitably finds a new rising star to create. For our hero, Irish Bob, it’s all turning into a tale of woe – or, more accurately, one of woeful polls that came out yesterday in the states that make up the first two contests of the nominating process.

First came a new Monmouth University poll of registered Democrat voters in Iowa, where O’Rourke spent the first week or so of his official campaign in March, driving around the corn fields in his carbon dioxide-emitting gas-powered van because he wanted to show he was a man of the people and the people in Iowa don’t drive no Teslas because Teslas don’t use no Ethanol, don’t you know. That pandering strategy apparently did not work out so well for our sheep suit-wearing fake Hispanic, nor did all the jumping up on the nearest table and waving his arms to get attention.

The results of the Monmouth poll are clear: Iowans don’t much care for Beto. O’Rourke, who just a few months ago was widely touted as one of the favorites in this race by his legion of media adorers, came in a very weak sixth place with just 6% support, trailing Joe Biden, Bernie Sanders, Pete Buttigieg, Kamala Harris and even Fauxcahontas in the results.

Yes, friends, Iowa Democrats prefer a fake Indian to a fake Hispanic. Go figure.

As if that result weren’t awful enough for the premiere media darling of 2018, the folks at St. Anselm’s College released a poll of New Hampshire Democrat voters to make matters even more depressing. It turns out that Granite State Democrats would rather live free or die than vote for a circus clown who livestreams his dental cleanings and calls Bibi Netanyahu a racist.

Irish Bob again comes in a very weak sixth place, again with just 6% support in this poll. He trails the same five other candidates as in New Hampshire, though in a slightly different order, with the fake Indian popping up ahead of Harris in this state.

So, what’s going on here? Well, several things.

First, as I noted a few weeks ago, Irish Bob most likely missed his window of opportunity to become an immediate, early leader in this race. He was without question the media’s favorite Democrat at the end of 2018 – they had a crush on him like a high school cheerleader with a crush on the team’s quarterback. That crush would have continued and even intensified had he returned the media’s longing desires by immediately and decisively announcing his candidacy on New Year’s Day or very shortly thereafter.

But he didn’t do that. Instead, he did what high school quarterbacks often do and fooled around for a few months. While the adoring media longed to have its precious Beto in the race, Irish Bob chose to play the field, as it were, hemming and hawing, often disappearing for weeks at a time, and refusing to commit to the relationship that the media so desperately desired.

In the meantime, other candidates anxious to attain the media’s “Rising Star” status were getting into the race and eagerly courting the media’s affections. First came Kamala Harris, who rocketed up the charts firmly into a strong 3rd place behind Biden and Sanders as soon as she offered to take the media out on their first date. It seemed to be a match made in fake news media heaven for awhile, until Harris began committing repeated gaffes, like getting caught on camera letting a CNN fake reporter help her pick out jackets at a high-dollar department store. That show of favoritism to one fake media outlet served to turn other fake media outlets off and had them go out looking for another “Rising Star” to create.

Enter Pete Buttigieg, or “Mayor Pete”, as his media adorers now love to call him. Young, good-looking, smart, quick with the recitation of his favorite talking points, able to hold his own in a tough interview with Chris Wallace – young Mayor Pete seemingly has it all, including being openly gay and married, which is like manna from heaven for his media courtiers.

As first Irish Bob’s and then Kamala’s “rising stars” have faded, it is no accident at all that Mayor Pete’s has eclipsed them in the Democrat Party’s media-created night sky. That’s what a plethora of softball interviews on the cable and broadcast networks, along with all the glowing “He’s just like another Kennedy!” profiles in the New York Times, the Washington Post, the New Yorker and Vanity Fair will do for a guy.

And here’s the thing about Mayor Pete: He’s not stupid or self-absorbed enough to just blow his media cheerleaders off, like their precious Beto did. Nor is he inept enough to engage in a similar series of off-putting gaffes like the bumbling Kamala.

No, Mr. Buttigieg is not a mere shooting star, no flash in the pan, as it were. You should get used to seeing his name running strong in the polling in this race, at least until someone even more attractive to the fickle fake media cheerleaders comes along and sweeps them off their feet.

Other than possibly those monkeys in China, it’s getting harder and harder to see who is still out there who might swoop in and get the media’s date to the Homecoming dance.

That is all.

Democrats/Media Double-Down on the Fake News After Barr Bombshell Testimony

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

Well, this will be an interesting day – but what else is new? – The Ecuadorian Embassy in London withdrew the asylum status it had granted WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange seven years ago, and turned him over to U.S. authorities. This just happened at about 5:00 a.m. Central Time as I was beginning to compile this piece, so I have no more details other than that.

What do you do when the fake news fails? You double down on faking the news. – If you’re a Democrat or a Democrat activist pretending to be a journalist, that’s what you do, anyway.

If it appears to you that leading Democrats and their media partners at CNN, MSNBC, the New York Times, the Washington Post and every other major media outlet are in an outright panic this morning, that’s only because they are. Definitely in a panic. A big one.

After Attorney General William Barr revealed to the Senate Judiciary Committee that he is forming a team to investigate the origins of the Obama FBI/DOJ’s decision to spy on the Trump Campaign throughout the 2016 elections, Democrats and their media agents went into overdrive pushing their joint talking points, which when summarized amount to “Barr is corrupt!”

Hey, wasn’t just a few months ago that all the leading Democrats were praising President Donald Trump for picking an old Bushie to be his next Attorney General? Of course, back then the Dems all assumed that Barr must hate Trump just like all the Bushes do, and that Trump was stupidly putting a Democrat ally in the AG’s spot.

You know what “assume” does, don’t you? It makes an “ass” out of “u” and “me.” And all the leading Democrats and their media agents, too.

San Fran Nan had the most revealing comment on Barr, saying in an interview with some fake “journalist” at the Associated Press that Barr is “going off the rails.” Yes, see, he was supposed to stay “on the rails” the Democrats and Robert Mueller had laid out for him, and now he is straying from the desired narrative on President Trump and the Russia Collusion fantasy.

Then there was always-reliable Pelosi toady Steny Hoyer, who of course stayed right on the dictated script of the day with “He is acting as an employee of the president. I believe the Attorney General believes he needs to protect the president of the United States.” Oh, you don’t say? How shocking you would utter those exact words, words that were then parroted by pretty much every Democrat talking head and fake news media lapdog on the nation’s cable news networks, and in the two big newspapers that serve as the reliable print propaganda arm of the Democrat Party.

It’s all such an incredibly tiresome game, yet they will continue to play it because it is literally all they have left.

But there is an interesting aspect in this, and that comes in observing which players in the Russia Collusion fantasy/illegal spying effort who aren’t talking, and haven’t been for a while.

Let’s start with Obama-era CIA Director and noted communist John Brennan. On March 26, two days after Barr released his four-page summary of the Mueller report, Brennan appeared on MSNBC’s Democrat propaganda show “Morning Joe,” and blamed all of the seditious statements he’s made about “Russia Collusion” on bad information he’d gotten from his “sources” who may or may not actually exist.

Two days later, the bombastic ex-spymaster issued a single tweet in which he said “It doesn’t matter if you are a Republican, a Democrat, an Independent, or an American of any or of no political affiliation. We all should hold our elected officials and those who hold the public’s trust to the highest ethical and moral standards, most especially Presidents.” Oh, golly, how high-minded of him.

Since that tweet, it had been two solid weeks of radio silence from one of MSNBC’s most highly-paid “contributors.” No tweets, no mornings with Joe and Mika, nothing.

Until last night, that is, when he appeared on MSNBC’s “Hardball” program with Chris Matthews, and said only that he was “disappointed” that the Attorney General used the word “spying” in this testimony to describe what were without any doubt at all the spying actions conducted by the DOJ/FBI cabal against the Trump Campaign and Trump Transition Team. None of Brennan’s usual bombast, none of his standard accusations that President Trump committed “treason”, just an expression of disappointment.

Why, it’s almost as if some lawyer has given him some new, toned-down talking points.

Same thing with James Comey, Obama’s favorite FBI Director and current teenage drama queen. Comey made one radio appearance and one TV appearance in the few days following the issuance of the Mueller report, along with a couple of his typically weird tweets. But since that last April fool’s joke tweet, nothing. Nada. Radio silence.

I’m sure it’s just coincidence, but that’s exactly what a good defense lawyer would advise Comey to do.  Nothing. Shut up. Be quiet.

What about Andrew McCabe? Just a few months ago, McCabe was all the rage, doing interviews on “60 Minutes”, appearing with the shrews on “The View”, hawking his book and just generally enjoying his post-FBI thug life.

But now? Well, suddenly he’s nowhere to be found. Not a public word out of him in weeks. Why, it’s almost as if he’s lawyered up or something.

Where’s FBI Super-Duper Agent Peter Strzok? Or his paramour, Lisa Page? Man, MSNBC just can’t find a good ex-FBI guest willing to libel the President on live TV these days. No wonder their  and CNN’s ratings are tanking.

Couldn’t happen to a nicer bunch of people.

That is all.

Barr Drops More Bombs During Senate Testimony

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

Oh my, oh my, oh my, my, my, my, my. – This stunning exchange between Democrat Sen. Jeanne Shaheen and Attorney General William Barr took place during Barr’s Wednesday morning testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee:

Barr: “I think spying on a political campaign is a big deal.”

Sen. Shaheen: “You’re not suggesting, though, that spying occurred?”

Barr: “I think spying did occur. Yes, I think spying did occur. But the question is whether it was predicated, adequately predicated, and I’m not suggesting it wasn’t adequately predicated. But I’d need to explore that…I think there was probably a failure among the group of leaders,” Barr said, adding that he thinks the FBI “is an outstanding organization.” He continued, however: “I feel I have an obligation to make sure government power is not abused.””

Boom. Time to lawyer up, James Comey.

When asked why he would go down this investigative road when his predecessor, Jeff Sessions, refused to do so, Barr’s remarks got even better:

“Well, for the same reason we’re worried about foreign influence in elections. We want to make sure that — I think spying on a political campaign is a big deal. It’s a big deal…The generation I grew up in which is the Vietnam War, a period, you know, people were all concerned about spying on anti-war people and so forth by the government. And there were a lot of rules put in place to make sure that there’s an adequate basis before our law enforcement agencies get involved in political surveillance…I’m not suggesting that those rules were violated, but I think it’s important to look at that. And I’m not just — I’m not talking about the FBI necessarily, but intelligence agencies more broadly.”

Boom, again. Time to lawyer up, John Brennan and James Clapper, if you hadn’t already done so.

Asked about Barr’s remarks by reporters as he was leaving the White House, President Trump used the “T” word again to describe the efforts of the deep state cabal within the DOJ and FBI that attempted to fix the 2016 election and then worked to overturn its results:

“It was an illegal investigation. It was started illegally. Everything about it was crooked,” Trump claimed. “This was an attempted coup, and it was treasonous. This was an attempted takedown of a president, and we beat them. We beat them.”

Boom.

That is all. What more to you need?

Barr Delivers Off-topic Bombshells at Budget Hearing

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

Those loud noises you hear are the sounds of American liberal heads exploding. – Despite being the target of a clownish witch hunt of his own, Israeli Prime Minister Bibi Netanyahu was indirectly elected to serve a record fifth term in that job yesterday in Israel’s parliamentary elections. His conservative Likud Party in fact received its strongest percentage of the vote since the 2003 elections, winning 35 seats in the 120 seat legislature, where it will be able to form an alliance with other conservative parties who together won 30 seats.

All the “experts” had of course predicted that Netanyahu would be brought down by the media-promoted witch hunt in which politically-motivated prosecutors threaten to indict him for allegedly accepting illegal gifts from leaders of other nations and his wife for filing to be reimbursed by the government for the costs of holding state dinners at the couple’s modest home. This kind prosecuturial nonsense was rewarded by voters with a significant shift in favor of Netanyahu and other conservative parties when compared to the results of the country’s previous three elections. Just wait until you hear all the liberal heads exploding here in the U.S. when the same kind of backlash takes place in our country’s own 2020 elections. It will be glorious.

Meanwhile, here in America, the New York Times just kept on faking the news for its demented leftist reader base, declaring these very positive results to be a “setback” for Netanyahu, based not on the actual election results, but by always-inaccurate exit polls conducted by fake news media organizations.  I swear I don’t make this stuff up. Who could?

Do we finally have a real attorney general on the job? – Bob Barr certainly made all the right noises during his testimony before the House Appropriations Committee yesterday.

In what was supposed to be a hearing about his department’s budget for Fiscal Year 2021, Barr was of course repeatedly questioned by craven Democrats who have no interest in actually doing their job about the Mueller report and when he plans to release it. During the course of that off-topic questioning by rank demagogues, the Attorney General delivered a wealth of extremely interesting information:

  • On the Mueller report, he said he would likely be able to release a properly-redacted version of it within the next week, and even hilariously promised to color-code the redactions for Democrats who aren’t capable of reading or thinking above a third-grade level.
  • He spelled out four areas of information he would redact consistent with statutes that have been on the books for decades:  1) grand jury information; 2) information related to U.S. intelligence-gathering; 3) information that could compromise ongoing investigations; and 4) information that could violate the privacy of individuals who were not direct subjects of the Mueller witch hunt.
  • Regarding his four-page summary of the Mueller report that was released two weeks ago, Barr revealed that he offered Mueller the opportunity to review and comment on the summary prior to its release, an offer Mueller refused to accept.
  • Barr told the committee that he anticipates that DOJ Inspector General Micheal Horowitz will finally, at long last, be wrapping up his own investigation into the rampant abuse of the FISA process by the deep state cabal inside his department sometime in May. Yay.

All of that is fine and good, but then came the really big news:

  • The Attorney General informed the committee that he has initiated an investigation into how, why and when the FBI decided to begin a counterintelligence investigation into the Trump Campaign, which we know actually began in late 2015 despite FBI and media lies claiming it only started in July, 2016.

If true – and there is no apparent reason not to take Barr at his word at this point in time – this is a very big deal, because any honest and thorough investigation into that particular subject will inevitably reveal that all of these Obama-era DOJ and FBI officials and their media co-conspirators have been lying to congress, investigators and the public about all of this for two and a half years now.

Further, any honest and thorough investigation into this subject will inevitably ensnare James Comey, Peter Strzok, Andrew McCabe, Lisa Page, Bruce and Nellie Ohr, Sally Yates and even Obama CIA Director John Brennan in its web, in addition to many others. Such an investigation would also inevitably reveal that Attorney General Loretta Lynch was intimately aware of everything that was happening, as well as then-President Barack Hussein Obama, given that every president receives a weekly briefing on U.S. counterintelligence operations.

Sadly, here is what Barr’s revelation also most likely reveals: That Salt Lake City U.S. Attorney John Huber and his staff of hundreds of investigators have most likely not been doing a damn thing on any of this over the last 18 months. It was the fall of 2017 when ex-Attorney General Jeff Sessions used Huber as a lame excuse for his refusal to appoint a second special counsel to look into all of this, claiming then that he had authorized Huber to conduct this exact investigation. Apparently, that was just a dodge by an attorney general who was intent on doing nothing, and did nothing well.

As I said, we have no reason not to take Barr at his word at this point in time, and we can always hope he is not engaging in a Sessions-style dodge now. Hopefully, he won’t give us any reason to start doubting his word in the months to come.

Our nation needs justice here, real justice.  Demands it, in fact.

That is all.

Jump on in, Alec Baldwin, the Water’s Fine!

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

Go for it, dude. – Fading actor and public assault and battery specialist Alec Baldwin took to his Twitter account yesterday (because that’s how all the fading celebrities communicate – right, Alyssa Milano?) and said this:

Yeah, that’s what Hillary Clinton thought, too. But, oh, hell, why not? Why not have an actor who is most famous for impersonating the President run against him? Would he be any less credible than than the assortment of cranks, hacks, and political grifters who are already in the race?

After all, the field already includes a candidate who is most famous for impersonating an Indian, another who thinks he is Spartacus, a senator who got ahead by sleeping around, another senator who is most notable for abusing her staff, a senator from New York who nobody can figure out why in the hell she’s in the race, a loser who wears sheep suits and rides a skateboard onto stage, a Commie who honeymooned at Lenin’s tomb, and a former vice president who can’t keep his hands off of women and children.

Would Alec Baldwin really bring any less credibility to a presidential race than that clown car? I mean, shoot, he did play Jack Ryan in a movie that one time, so he’s got that going for him.

And I haven’t even mentioned Pete Buttigieg yet. Here’s a guy who favors murdering children right up until the moment at which they would be born and even beyond, and he just spent half an interview on “Meet the Press” and much of his speech at something called the LGBTQ Victory Fund National Champagne Brunch questioning the religious beliefs of the sitting President and Vice President of the United States.

Well, isn’t that special? (Some of you baby boomers will get that reference; you Millennials will probably have to Google it.)

As I predicted a few weeks ago, Mr. Buttigieg is the latest media-facilitated “rising star” in Democrat circles, a guy with no real notable political achievements to speak of – other than getting elected to a notable office – but a guy who checks a lot of the demographic boxes favored by the Democrats’ social justice warrior voter base and who looks good on television. He’s probably about to be eclipsed by the looming, very large presence of the next media-facilitated Democrat “rising star”, Stacey Abrams, but for now, he’s da bomb in media circles, the guy all the Sunday shows are dying to have as their guest and all the fake newspapers and magazines like Vanity Fair can’t wait to profile and compare to Kennedys. He should enjoy all the attention while he can.

But wait, there’s more!

Now, we have this Eric Swalwell guy officially running. He made that official announcement on … wait for it… the Late Show with Stephen Colbert! Because of course he did.

Swalwell is a guy who has the maturity level of the average college frat social director – he is Otter from “Animal House” in the flesh.

His entire schtick is to go on CNN and MSNBC and lie about all the proof of Russia Collusion he has seen but can’t talk about in any detail because it’s all like doublesecretprobation and stuff and only he and Adam Schiff have seen it but everyone is supposed to believe him because he’s the social director for the biggest frat of all, the Democrat Party.

*sigh*

If Lorne Michaels and the writers at Saturday Night Live were intent on creating real humor these days rather than tiresome political swill, they’d invite Tim Matheson to guest host and have him do an impression of Eric Swalwell announcing his presidential run standing next to the beer keg at the frat party. Have Stephen Colbert play the Boone character. That would be some funny stuff right there.

But back to Alec Baldwin: He was likely joking with that tweet yesterday, but hey, why wouldn’t he go ahead and jump into this race? After all, it’s already a car filled with clowns, and he’s a professional clown these days, so he’d fit right in.

Kamala would probably even let him call shotgun.

That is all.

Kirstjen Nielsen Resigns, and Nothing Much Will Change

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

Nielsen’s out, and not much will change. – Kirstjen Nielsen became the fall guy for the ongoing fiasco at our southern border last night, to be replaced as Homeland Security Secretary by ex-Obama official Kevin McAleenan, who served as Deputy Secretary under the infamous Jeh Johnson.

So, what difference will the change in personnel make? Not much. The problem at the border is with the tragic state of our laws and politically-motivated court decisions issued by outlaw Obama judges. Until congress acts to change the laws – and this particular congress is not going to do so – the situation at the border cannot be resolved without the building of a wall. Even with a wall, it will remain near-impossible for the government to send invaders who manage to sneak into our country illegally back home unless the absurd loopholes in the asylum laws are changed. Simple as that.

So, the Democrats have “won” in this issue: They have succeeded in creating a situation of utter chaos on our border with Mexico, they have the literal invasion of our country they’ve worked for so many years to create, and no one in a position of power can do anything effective to stop it. This is the ultimate outcome of the Obama/Soros plan to “transform this country”, as Obama was so fond of saying throughout his presidency. And hey, they had plenty of help from Paul Ryan, John McCain, Mitch McConnell and the Republican majorities in both houses of congress, who did literally nothing on this issue during President Trump’s first two years in office.

A pox on all their houses.

This is the issue on which the 2020 presidential election will be decided. – The President can talk all he wants to about the booming economy and Democrats can talk all they want about Green New Deals and free stuff for everybody, but, just like it was in 2016, what to do about the ongoing invasion – and that is what it is – taking place from Texas to California will ultimately decide who gets to live in the White House starting in 2021.

President Trump understands this, which is why he decided last week to put off dealing with the healthcare issue until after the 2020 election has come and gone, choosing instead to keep his focus on border security and pounding his Democrat opponents for refusing to do anything to address it.

The winning strategy for Trump is obvious: Get as many miles of new border wall built as you can with all that Department of Defense money that’s been identified, and pound the Democrats on the issue every day. Keep them on the defensive for the next 18 months.

That leaves the Democrats with what they always try to do on this subject: Rank demagoguery and trying to change the subject.

Hey, thanks to the Paul Ryan/Mitt Romney/John McCain wing of the GOP, it’s worked for them so far.

Some campaign odd and ends:

How moribund is Elizabeth Warren’s campaign? Fauxcahontas is running a poor third in her home state of Massachusetts. That moribund. And look who’s about to catch her there: Pete Buttigieg. Ouch.

Speaking of moribund campaigns, how about Cory Booker’s? He announced he had raised $5 million during the first quarter of this year, which sounds like a decent number until you realize that Buttigieg, the little-known mayor of South Bend, Indiana, had raised $7 million. Yikes.

Bernie Sanders led the Q1 money race for the Dems, coming in at $18 million. Kamala Harris raised $12 million, while Irish Bob O’Rourke came in at $9.4 million, with most of that coming in March following his announcement in late February. Because he hasn’t formally announced, frontrunner Joe Biden had no fundraising numbers to release.

Meanwhile, President Trump raised $67.5 million, $26 million more than those five leading Democrats combined.

Oh.

That is all.

Loser Stacey Abrams Personifies the Bizarre Requirement for Democrat Superstardom

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

Qualification Numero Uno: Are you a recent loser? – Tim Ryan, a relatively obscure congressman from Ohio and Eric Swalwell, a disgusting demagogue from California, both entered the swelling field of candidates for the Democrat 2020 presidential nomination this week. Cool, right?

Right. But you don’t need to spend too much time worrying about whether either one will ultimately win the party’s nomination for one simple reason: Neither of them can make a credible claim of being a political loser.

Wait, what? Is that a typo? Am I mainlining rotgut vodka like Chelsea Handler has been doing for the last 30 years? Am I auditioning for a job with CNN by getting it 100% wrong????

Well, no, none of that. I’m dead serious here: It is a simple fact that, in order to be considered to be a serious contender for the 2020 Democrat nomination, a candidate has to first be a fully-certified loser. In fact, being a recent, laughable loser is the quickest way to have our fake news media declare you to be a “superstar.” The Democrat Party and its lapdogs in the fake news media are quite literally obsessed with political loooooooosers, especially recent ones.

Irish Bob O’Rourke, who managed to lose his 2018 senate race to incumbent Ted Cruz despite piling up a 3-to-1 spending advantage, is the most obvious example of this growing phenomenon. The media’s beloved “Beto” has been declared either a “rising star” or “superstar” by pretty much every major fake media outlet in the free world at this point, for no reason other than that he managed to lose fairly closely to his GOP opponent. Well, that and live-streaming his dental appointments on Facebook, which was just so darn cool.

Then there’s the even odder case of Stacey Abrams, the loser in last year’s Georgia gubernatorial race. She managed to lose that race despite a major spending advantage, along with a rampant, blatant voter fraud campaign in her hip pocket. Despite all of that, and despite a slavish news media giving her tens of millions of dollars in free air time and print space, the final count showed her coming up more than 50,000 votes short. There just weren’t enough cemetery, prison or illegal alien voters in all of Georgia to close that gap.

So, what has she done in response? Why, she’s taken a page out of the Pantsuit Princess’s book of political projection, accusing her opponent of being the one who was stealing votes, refusing to accept the outcome of the race, and declaring herself to be the rightful governor of Georgia, a claim literally no one actually believes but corrupt media hacks glowingly support.

Don’t believe me? Here’s how MSNBC’s bigot host Joy Ann Reid let her Twitter audience know Abrams would be her guest on her Sunday morning show:

She’s not just another failed politician who’s never won a race above the state representative level: She’s a “superstar”!

See what I’m getting at here? Indeed, Abrams is such a darn “superstar” that there is rampant chatter in Democrat and media circles (but I repeat myself) that she is probably going to mount her own presidential campaign. Because, hey, why not?

You just can’t make this stuff up, folks.

Why not, indeed? Abrams likely sits in her extremely roomy living room easy chair, perusing the latest Democrat presidential polls and thinks “geez, all these people are losers, too, so why not me?”

Look who’s leading those polls:

Joe Biden – two-time miserable looooser in Democrat presidential politics;

The Commie – loooooser to the Pantsuit Princess in the rigged primaries of 2016;

Irish Bob O’Rourke – last year’s most famous loser, running a weak third to the Commie;

Kamala Harris – such a looooser that she had to carry on a years-long affair with Willie Brown in order to advance her career;

Those four loooosers are combining to hog 70% of the support in the current RealClearPolitics average of Democrat polls. The rest of the field, consisting almost exclusively of politicians who have never lost a political race in their lives, are left to scramble for the remaining 30%.

This is reality.

So, when you see reports indicating that a miserable political looooser like Stacey Abrams is considered to be a “superstar” in Democrat/media circles, don’t laugh, because these people are deadly serious. They are obsessed with such losers, and it’s a safe bet that it’s just a matter of time before the failure from Georgia enters the race.

Republicans everywhere should rejoice.

That is all.
