Trump to Newsom: We Want Our Rail Boondoggle Money Back!

The Evening Campaign Update
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Responding to the action taken on Tuesday by California Governor Gavin Newsom to cancel 2/3rds of Jerry Brown’s high speed rail boondoggle, President Donald Trump (how could anyone ever tire of typing those three glorious words?) issued a tweet at 7:29 CT demanding the federal government’s ill-considered subsidies of the fake green project back:

That’s right: The federal government (in an other president’s administration – you get one guess as to which one) is so absurdly wasteful that it actually looked a this disastrous waste of taxpayer money and said, “hey, we want a piece of that action!”, ultimately coming across with $3.5 billion in subsidies.

Now, the current POTUS wants the money back in his never-ending, singular focus to Make America Great Again.

Somebody go make some popcorn, because this is about to get good…

Why Ed Markey is Desperate to Avoid Voting on His “Green New Deal”

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

Oh. Why, nobody could’ve seen that coming. Oh, wait… – Useless North Carolina RINO Senator Richard Burr told the leering press yesterday that the incredibly mis-named Senate Intelligence Committee has found no evidence of “collusion” with Russia by the Trump Campaign, Trump Transition Team or Trump Administration. Go figure.

Like American Gestapo Chief, er, “Special Counsel” Robert Mueller, Senate Intel is winding down its fake investigation because there is no “there” there – never was, isn’t now, and never will be. Democrats and fake journalists who really bought into this fantasy play expressed their shock and dismay, but Burr and his partner in this fake investigation – Virginia Democrat Senator Mark Warner – are finally giving up the ghost and directing their committee to move onto greener pastures.

Hey, here’s an idea – maybe y’all can go back to doing your actual job and start exercising a little congressional oversight over the nation’s still-corrupt “intelligence” community. What a novel concept.

Sen. Ed Markey wants to “sponsor” the incredibly destructive “Green New Deal”… – but he just doesn’t want to “vote” for the incredibly destructive “Green New Deal.” That was the message sent out by the despicable Democrat from Massachusetts on Tuesday after Mitch McConnell told the press he is making plans to hold a vote on the hilariously inept congressional resolution that Alexandria Ocasio Cortez rolled out into the public domain last week.

“I’ve noted with great interest the Green New Deal,” McConnell said, “And we’re going to be voting on that in the Senate. Give everybody an opportunity to go on record and see how they feel about the Green New Deal.” In other words, the Senate Majority Leader wants to get every Democrat member in that body on the record supporting things like destroying the miracle of air flight, destroying the nation’s thriving oil and gas industry, making cars too expensive for all but the wealthy to afford and throwing the United States quickly into an economic depression that would make the 1930s look like a walk in the park.

Sen. Markey wants none of that voting nonsense. He wants to be able to keep up his 30-year practice of being a rank demagogue on the “Global Warming” issue without actually having votes in favor of the invariably-Socialist/fascist “solutions” proposed by the fake “green” community dirtying up his record.

Thus it was that, shortly after McConnell made his promise to hold a vote, Markey issued this response that reeks of desperation:

“Don’t let Mitch McConnell fool you: this is nothing but an attempt to sabotage the movement we are building. He wants to silence your voice so Republicans don’t have to explain why they are climate change deniers. McConnell wants this to be the end, this is just the beginning.”

Yeah, it’s a “beginning” all right – Markey may or may not realize it just yet, but the roll-out of this creepy proposal to turn our country into just another starving, third-world socialist/fascist failed state is indeed the beginning of the end of the Democrat Party’s quest to regain the levers of power in Washington. Democrats have only managed to win elections over the past half-century by lying about their real beliefs and intentions. The Green New Deal removes that mask for all to see, and it is an incredibly ugly face that most Americans will never support.

So, in case you’re wondering, that is why Markey and other senate Democrats will do everything they can to avoid casting a vote on AOC’s incredibly destructive proposal.

Hey, maybe this is another reason… – You don’t have to believe me or any other conservative voice on how awful the Green New Deal really is – you could listen to the founder of the far-left eco-terrorist group “GreenPeace” if you want.

Patrick Moore, in an interview with the New American, basically characterized Markey’s proposal as a global suicide pact:  “It is quite amazing that someone that is in government — actually elected to the government of the United States of America — would propose that we eliminate all fossil fuels in 12 years,” he said in an on-camera interview with The New American from Canada. “This would basically result, if we did it on a global level, it would result in the decimation of the human population from 7-odd billion down to who knows how few people.”

Oh. Well, gosh, maybe it isn’t such a great idea, then.

Hold the vote, Mitch. Put these soulless ghouls on the record for posterity.

That is all.

Gavin Newsom Blows Green Wet Dreams to Smithereens

The Evening Campaign Update
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

This afternoon, California Governor Gavin Newsom kicked Jerry Brown’s great high-speed rail boondoggle to the sidelines, announcing a major scaling-back of the $100 billion Bankruptcy Express:

“Let’s level about the high-speed rail,” Newsom said. “Let’s be real, the current project as planned would cost too much and, respectfully, take too long. Right now, there simply isn’t a path to get from Sacramento to San Diego, let alone from San Francisco to L.A. I wish there were.”

Oh.

But wait – what about this “Green New Deal”, and its pipedream promise to “build out high-speed rail at a scale where air travel stops becoming necessary”? If we can’t build a single such line from “Sacramento to San Diego, let alone from San Francisco to L.A.”, what then of Alexandria Ocasio Cortez’s grand plans to connect apparently every significant city, town, village and dot-on-the-map with such lines in 10 short years?

The answer is obvious to anyone whose cranial synapses are firing, which apparently excludes all elected Democrats and everyone working at a major fake news media outlet like CNN.

It is important to remember that, about a decade ago, the initial estimated cost for Jerry Brown’s Boondoggle came in at $29 billion. As the years dragged on the estimates of course rose – as happens with any big-government socialist land grab. As Newsom pulls the plug on about 2/3rds of the thing, the current cost estimates are now in the $100 billion range and rising every day.

So when you see some talking head “expert” tossing out a Green New Deal cost of $40 trillion in today’s dollars, just remember that a decade from now that number will almost certainly have climbed well to the north of $120 trillion or so.

Gov. Newsom is a far, far leftist himself, and certainly didn’t mean to do it, but his announcement today well and truly put the leftist, fake green lie to any rational thoughts that AOC’s “Green New Deal” might ever be doable.

To quote Shakespeare, “It is a tale told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing.”

The Fierce And Controversial Competition To Export Permian Crude

Tuesday Energy Update

(Because Energy Fuels Our Lives)

The booming Permian Basin has been one of the most amazing creators of competition the oil industry has seen in modern times. Every oil boom inevitably creates conflict, as individuals and businesses race to be the first to get in the various “games” that surround oilfield development. But the Permian is so vast, its available resource so gigantic, that it often seems to have created more races than NASCAR .

Examples of the races that have developed in and around the Permian in just the last few years include:

  • The race to acquire leases and proved reserves that has driven the cost of acquisition in the region to as high as $95,000 per acre;
  • The race to reserve drilling rigs and frac crews;
  • The race to hire qualified workers, which continues to grow increasingly fierce over time;
  • The race to provide frac sand;
  • The race to develop and install water recycling technologies;
  • The race to permit and build-out new pipeline capacity as a shortage developed in recent years;
  • The race among producers to reserve capacity on those new pipelines;
  • The race among refiners to finance and build new capacity to refine the light, sweet crude coming out of the Permian and other shale basins in ever-rising volumes;

As the competition to accommodate the Permian has moved ever-further downstream, it has now resulted in a growing conflict on the southern Texas Gulf Coast to be the first facility to build out new capacity to land and load the largest classes of oil tankers – so-called Very Large Crude Carriers, or VLCCs – and send them back out to sea.

Trump Should Sign the Bad Border Deal and Finish the Wall on His Own

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

Ok, the whole “black face” thing  just very predictably veered off into the theater of the absurd. – Semi-tone deaf pop singer Katy Perry fell into the “black face” controversy on Monday for no good reason at all, because of course she did.  Social media always takes any real issue like the one swirling around Virginia Democrats to the most ridiculous extremes possible.

Ms. Perry has attached her name to a line of shoes, and some, like those pictured above, have little eyes, nose and mouth glued onto them.  Sort of like something your 6 year-old granddaughter might design (trust me, I know about this first hand). Anyway, because the shoes pictured above happen to be black in color, a bunch of nitwits on Twitter desperate to be offended accused the singer of being a racist yesterday.

Never mind the fact that the line of shoes come in a variety of different colors – it’s only the black ones that are somehow offensive. Ms. Perry has yet to apologize, something she should never even consider doing in a million years. Because the truth is this: Had her line of shoes included a variety of colors, but not black ones, she’d have then been accused by the very same nitwits of discrimination. You all know that is true.

The people who know “Beto” best would rather go see Trump. Take this as an object lesson. – When the White House announced last Thursday that President Donald Trump would travel to El Paso for a political rally on Monday, Irish Bob O’Rourke, an El Paso native, quickly announced he would hold a “counter-rally” of his own.

Hearts began to flutter throughout our fake news media – as they always do whenever the cute ex-sheep suit-wearing punk rocker opens his mouth – as the wags began to rampantly speculate that their precious “Beto” would surely draw more people to his rally than the President would. After all, El Paso was his home town!  Why surely the people who know and love “Beto” best would turn out in mobs to hear his immaculate pronouncements!

Uh, well, no. That didn’t happen. Not even close. The fake news media did its best to cover it up, but the reality is that the President had an overflow crowd of 8,000 or so inside the arena in which he spoke, and another 20,000 or so standing out in the elements watching on large TV screens. Here’s a shot of a small part of that outdoor crowd:

Meanwhile, a few blocks down the road, only a couple of thousand showed up to listen to the city’s fake favorite son. It turns out that familiarity really does breed contempt.

But the reality won’t stop the fake news media from lying about it all anyway. The shameless fake newsers at The Week have a piece out this morning with this headline:  “Trump Seemed Very Interested in Beto O’Rourke’s Evidently Larger Crowd During His El Paso Rally,” thus deceitfully implying that Irish Bob actually drew more people than Trump did, something not even the most biased fake reporters on the scene attempted to claim.

How false is that headline?  Despite massively inflating O’Rourke’s actual turnout by a factor of seven or so, The Week’s own piece admits the Trump crowd was far larger:

Trump’s audience inside the coliseum was 6,500, at capacity, El Paso Fire Department public information officer Enrique Aguilar told the El Paso Times. “It might be 10,000 with the people outside,” watching on monitors. The rally O’Rourke spoke at, following a mile-long march, drew at least 7,000 people, The Texas Tribune reports.

Um, last time I looked, 10,000 is more than 7,000, even when those absurdly-faked numbers appear in a fake news publication like The Week.

Another bad deal on the border. – The very Swampy congressional negotiators announced a very, very, very bad “bi-partisan” deal on border security funding as President Trump was flying out to Texas on Monday. The “deal” includes just $1.375 for “border barrier” funding – because we mustn’t say “wall”, you know – far below the President’s $5.7 billion demand. It’s a lousy deal, negotiated by lousy Republican swamp rats and open-borders Democrats. The outcome was thus predictable.

If this smelly “deal” passes both houses of congress and is sent to his desk, the President has only three options that would preserve his electoral viability going into 2020:

  • Reject the bill, which means another fake partial government shutdown; or
  • Sign the bill and immediately announce either a national emergency declaration or, as White House Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney laid out on Sunday, that he will use his presidential authority to reallocate unused funds from the Defense, Homeland Security and other departmental budgets to fund the wall.

Appearing on Fox News Sunday, Mulvaney said:

“Any president can do this…There are certain funds of money that he can get to without declaring a national emergency and other funds that he can only get to after declaring a national emergency. The whole pot is well north of $5.7 billion.”

That is the path the President should take. The Democrats are desperate to force another shutdown in order to change the subject from racist, baby-murdering, women-assaulting Virginia Democrats, disastrous Green New Deals and anti-Semite Minnesota congresswomen. So they’ll be all too thrilled to deny more paychecks to those same 800,000 federal workers and cry their crocodile tears over them.

The President should not give them that gift when he has them so clearly on the defensive.

What President Trump cannot do is sign this atrocity of a “deal” and do nothing else on border security. More than any other element of his 2016 campaign, his promise to secure our Southern border is why he was elected. He cannot leave that promise unaddressed any longer and expect to be re-elected in 2020.

The time to act is now.

That is all.

Ilhan Omar Issues a Very Clintonian Non-Apology “Apology”

The Afternoon Campaign Update
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

After being ordered to do so by Democrat house leaders to do so, The Enemy Within, Ilhan Omar, issued a very Clintonian non-apology “apology” this afternoon for her anti-Semite tweetstorm yesterday evening.  Here is the first part of the text:

“Anti-Semitism is real and I am grateful for Jewish allies and colleagues who are educating me on the painful history of anti-Semitic tropes. My intention is never to offend my constituents or Jewish Americans as a whole. We have to always be willing to step back and think through criticism, just as I expect people to hear me when others attack me for my identity. This is why I unequivocally apologize.”

Ok, so far, so good right? Well, except for the part about blaming “others” – a racially-loaded word in and of itself in this context – for failing to “hear me”, that is.  Otherwise, it’s ok, and almost sounds sincere.

But then, there’s the second part:

“At the same time, I reaffirm the problematic role of lobbyists in our politics, whether it be AIPAC [the American Israel Public Affairs Committee], the [National Rifle Association] or the fossil fuel industry. It’s gone on too long and we must be willing to address it.”

Oh, those “problematic” lobbyists.  Why, that’s what her anti-Semitic tweetstorm was really about, not her clear history of being an anti-Israel, anti-American Jew-hater.

And who are these “problematic” lobbyists?  Why, AIPAC, of course, which is not a “lobbyist” group at all, but rather a non-profit 501(c)4 advocacy group. So, this “apology” from the Enemy Within gets in another slander at AIPAC.

Then there’s the standard leftist boogeymen at the National Rifle Association, and of course, the evil “fossil fuel industry” that is responsible for for the modern society we enjoy today. So darn evil, those people who clothe us, power our cars, heat our homes and provide about 80% of the nation’s electricity every day.

This is pathetic. It’s not an apology at all, but just another anti-Semitic, anti-American, anti-prosperity attack piece from a budding fascist thug.

Thanks, Democrats, for so clearly showing all of us the astonishing level of ugliness you are willing to support with your votes.

That is all.

The Enemy Within, Ilhan Omar, Now Has a Seat in Congress

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

The Enemy Within now has a seat in congress. – Her name is Ilhan Omar, a radical Muslim activist who hates Jews and Israel, supports Sharia Law, supports Hamas, ISIS and other terrorist groups, and is an actual elected representative from Minnesota. Her hate-filled, anti-American, anti-Semitic views are all on display in this 2013 interview:

This Muslim radical is feeling increasingly emboldened by her new position and the friendly attitudes towards her views displayed by her fellow Democrat members of congress, which is no surprise given that the Vice-Chairman of the DNC during 2017 and 2018 was another well-known anti-Semite, Keith Ellison. Oh, yeah, and Ellison now just happens to be the Attorney General in … wait for it … Minnesota!

Rep. Omar now feels so enabled by her increasingly anti-Israel party apparatus that she went on an anti-Israel Twitter storm last night, chronicled here by Grabien News. In her storm, she accused Israel of bribing members of congress (wonder if she’s also concerned about Netflix giving Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez $10 million for rights to the documentary they did about her?), and incorrectly identified the American Israel Political Affairs Committee (AIPAC) as the source of those “bribes” (AIPAC is a 501(c)4 organization that does not make political contributions).

Desperate for some support after pro-Israel Twitter users slammed her for her racist remarks, Omar then re-tweeted a message from Joshua Zeitz, which she obviously failed to read all the way through the end of its 280 characters.  Zeitz’s tweet begins by sounding supportive of Omar’s anti-Israel position, but then ends by slamming the obvious anti-Semite by stating she “might as well call us hook-nosed.”

Ooooooooops.

If you wondered why almost no Democrats stood to join all of the Republicans in applauding President Trump’s State of the Union messages about support for Israel, well, it should be coming more clear now. Any Jewish American who continues to vote Democrat in the future is casting a suicidal vote.

It’s fair to note that if a Republican did any of what Omar did last night, he or she would be hounded from office by fellow Republicans and our fake news media. Omar, being just another anti-Semitic Democrat, will be given a pass from our increasingly anti-Semitic fake news media, because that’s how this stuff works.

Speaking of Minnesota… – Oh hey, Minnesota Senator Amy Klobuchar is running for president in 2020!  Aren’t you all just so darn excited?  Yay!

Speaking in the midst of a massive Minnesota snowstorm, Klobuchar told her dozens of supporters that, on her first day in office, she would address “global warming.”

You seriously cannot make this stuff up.

I thought she’d already done this. – Fauxcahontas is running, too! But didn’t we already know that?  I’m confused. Anyway, the pathologically lying fraud Senator from Massachusetts tossed her headdress into the campfire ring on Sunday and sent up smoke signals notifying supporters that she now needs to raise some serious wampum for her 2020 warpath.

Meanwhile, in the Commonwealth of Virginia… – The white guys in black face and Klan robes are gonna survive, but the black guy isn’t.

That appears to be the math the Democrats and their fake news media enablers are setting up to be the ultimate outcome to almost unbelievable scandal that has unfolded among the state’s Democrat Party leaders over the past couple of weeks.

The fakenewsers at CBS gave Governor Ralph Northam a 30-minute softball interview with Obama buddy Gayle King, who pretends to be a “journalist” in her role as a host on the network’s low-rated morning program. Picking King for this interview basically gives Northam the Obama seal of approval and tells all Democrats to stand down where Northam’s concerned, so he’s going to survive.

Meanwhile, Attorney General Mark Herring, caught up in a similar “black face” scandal, has been laying low, and if you Google his name, you’ll see that no major media outlet has bothered to even file a story on him since February 6. So, the fake news media fix is in, and he will also survive to serve out his term.

Then there’s the only non-black face-wearing Democrat in this mix, Lt. Governor Justin Fairfax, who doesn’t need shoe polish because he happens to be African American. Fairfax has now been accused by not just one, but two women of being a sexual abuser, and both accusations are backed up by contemporaneous evidence, unlike any of the accusations leveled last Fall against Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh.

USA Today is reporting that Fairfax – unlike Northam or Herring – will likely be facing an impeachment effort this week in the state’s House of Delegates. No one in the fake news media is awarding him softball interviews with Obama friends or otherwise giving him cover. He’s toast, whether he realizes it yet or not.

The lesson from the Democrat Party and the fake news media here is clear: If you’re a clearly racist white guy who also, like Northam, supports murdering live-born babies, you will survive as long as you can stick it out past the initial furor. But if you’re a black guy who is accused of abusing women, you are going to be tossed to the wolves.

That, friends, is your Democrat Party in action.

That is all.

Florida Court Orders State Regulators to Permit Everglades Oil Drilling

Sunday Energy Update

(Because Energy Fuels Our Lives)

A court decision in Florida earlier this week illustrates the difficulties involved in drilling for oil and natural gas in environmentally sensitive areas. The inevitable tensions between environmental conservation and the exercise of property rights can become especially challenging to resolve when they take place in a state where existing oilfield regulations are inadequate and outdated.

That is what is happening in Florida this week, where a three-judge panel of the state’s First District Court of Appeal ruled on Tuesday that the state’s Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) acted improperly in denying a permit to drill the first exploratory oil well in the Everglades in half a century. The DEP had initially denied the permit when it was filed in 2016 by mineral owner Kanter Real Estate LLC, citing threats to surface and groundwater.

After an administrative law judge, E. Gary Early, issued a finding that the five-acre parcel of land on which Kanter wants to drill the well is in fact isolated from groundwater and the local public water supply, and published a “recommended order” for the project to move forward, DEP officials once again denied the permit. The Court of Appeal ruled, in a 14-page decision, that “DEP Secretary Noah Valenstein improperly rejected ‘factual findings’ by” Judge Early and that “state law requires agencies to accept administrative law judges’ findings of fact unless they are not supported by ‘competent, substantial evidence.'”

The Democrat Party’s Descent Into Full-Throated Fascism is Now Complete

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

This was a really important week, and it is crucial that we all understand why. This was the week when the mask of socialist fascism came completely off the ugly face of the national Democrat Party, and there is no going back, hard though they will try.

Simply put, all the Democrats had to do over the next two years to have a real shot a regaining all levers of power in our nation’s capital was not be batsh*t crazy, and they couldn’t do it. They can’t help themselves. This is, after all, their true nature, and has been for almost a full century now, when communist loyalists began making real inroads into their ranks, our media and our educational system.

Prior generations of the party’s politicians were able to hide their real desires to turn our nation into just another failed socialist/fascist third world country behind an ever-evolving series of false talking points. But that has all been ripped away thanks to the all-consuming hatred of President Donald Trump (I never tire of typing those three glorious words) harbored by the latest collection misanthropes, racists, women-abusers, ageing Bolshevik grumps, fake Indians and mindless children who now represent the party in congress and Virginia’s state government.

It wasn’t just this week – the batsh*t craziness has been accelerating for a long time now. Anyone paying real attention recognized the Democrats’ lurch to full-fledged fascist thuggery with their creation and full endorsement of the Antifa movement in response to the 2016 election. That move was Adolph Hitler 101 for anyone who’s ever read a book about 1930s Germany. But still the party’s leadership and fake news media agents maintained the fiction that the old Bolshevik Bernie Sanders was some sort of outlier among its ranks, just an old grump – who’s really an “independent” after all – who just got lucky and caught a flukish wave of young voters in his challenge to the Pantsuit Princess in 2016.

But then came the catalyst – Alexandria Ocasio Cortez, a cute, 29 year-old unabashed socialist/fascist with a bright smile, a never-quiet mouth, and a middle-school backpack filled with half-baked socialist “ideas” lucked into a win in a Bronx congressional district and became an instant media star. This hopelessly ignorant but social-media-savvy cretin has increasingly become the “thought leader” – to the extent she can be credited with actually having “thoughts” – of the Democrat Party, and that has led to a growing competition among those who aspire to be the Democrat 2020 presidential nominee and other party leaders to see who can be the most leftist and thuggish among them.

Over the last two weeks we have had multiple Democrat presidential hopefuls endorse a 70% income tax rate, one endorse an even more punitive 90% rate, and another throw out the coup de gras, a clearly unconstitutional tax levied not on incomes, but on assets. To top it all off, another aspirant to the party’s nomination – Irish Bob O’Rourke – went so far as to publicly question the continued validity of the entire Constitution itself, a thought pretty much all Democrats have harbored in their minds but only expressed in hushed voices when among friends.

So the Party’s mask was already slipping, its elastic headband fraying at the edges from the constant strain of having to hold back its members’ true intentions for all these decades, when Ocasio Cortez dropped the figurative socialist/fascist Mother Of All Bombs into the public domain this past Wednesday night: Her “Green New Deal.” Oh, my. The mask didn’t just fall to the floor, it disintegrated like Humpty Dumpty, never to be put back together again.

Within hours of rolling her GND outline onto her congressional website, Ocasio Cortez’s paper version of the Bolshevik Revolution had attracted the endorsements of no fewer than 70 Democrat members of congress and almost all of the currently-announced presidential candidates. 43-year veteran of congress Ed Markey of Massachusetts went in whole-hog, announcing himself as a co-sponsor of this fake green Communist Manifesto.

After a fierce backlash from the public and in some parts of the media, someone – probably Nancy Pelosi – convinced Ocasio Cortez to pull the atrocity down from her website, and she and her staff have been out there for the last two days denying the thing was ever posted in the first place, because lying and scrubbing history is what socialist fascists do. But that action was, as they say, a day late and a dollar short – there is no going back from the crossing of that particular Rubicon.

So now, President Trump will be able to pound his opponents over the head with their full-throated endorsements of all the key elements of socialist fascism for the next 20 months, presenting American voters with the clearest choice they could possibly have between the America they’ve always known or a lurch into the same third-world status now enjoyed by the starving people of Venezuela.

It didn’t have to be this way – all the Democrats had to do was to not be batsh*t crazy. But hey, when you actually are batsh*t crazy, it’s really hard to keep up appearances.

That is all.
