The Democrat Debates Will be a Money-Taking-and-Spending Orgy

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

Boy, this is going to be one expensive pair of debates. – Last week, I rolled out a proposed drinking game to play during this week’s pair of Democrat debates: Take a shot of tequila every time one of the candidates makes a proposal that would cost more than $1 trillion. You’ll be dead within an hour.

At the rate this motley collection of miscreants, sloths, Commies and grifters is going, I’m going to have to revise that death estimate down to about 20 minutes.

Here are some examples of the trillions the various candidates have been proposing to spend just over the past 48 hours:

Bernie Sanders – The Commie proposes to just make all outstanding student loans vanish into thin air, and says he’ll pay for it with an unspecific “tax on Wall Street.”

Hey, guess who invests in the undefined boogeyman that Democrats refer to as “Wall Street”? Hundreds of millions of ordinary, every day Americans, including anyone who owns an IRA, a 401(k) or any other form of investment account. That’s who would really pay that “tax on Wall Street.”

Fauxcahontas – Princess Little Big Moneyspender, meanwhile, most recently proposed to pay “marriage reparations” to gay couples who had to file as “single” during the years before the law was changed.

Hey, do you think any enterprising Democrat candidate will think to propose to pay “student loan reparations” to us Baby Boomers who paid off not only our own student loans but also those of our children? Because I’ll be signing up for that one.

Irish Bob O’Rourke – Not to be outdone, Irish Bob introduced a new proposal over the weekend that would “help” veterans and their families by levying a special tax on families that do not include veterans or current military members. Thus, the former “rising star” of the Democrat Party finds a new way to not only violate all sorts of constitutional principles of taxation, but also to divide Americans even more than they already are by pitting family against family.  Disgraceful.

Kamala Harris – One reason why Harris has faded in the race is that she’s just been running around basically saying “me too!” to the spending ideas of others. She’s for crashing the banking system by “forgiving” trillions in student loans; for any identity-based spending idea that comes along, like Warren’s “marriage reparations”; for paying reparations to millions of slave descendants; for pretty much anything that might get her a mention on the NBC Nightly News, basically.

So, anytime a question is asked of Harris, just go ahead and take a shot before she even answers, because you know whatever she says is coming right out of your pocket.

Cory Booker – I think I’ve just figured out why Cory Booker is performing so poorly in this race: He’s making a proposal that does NOT involve stealing money from one class of people to give to another or to divide the nation. His new deal involves setting up what he would call a “clemency panel” that would review the cases of 17,000 to 20,000 non-violent drug offenders currently serving time in our nation’s prison system. Given the absurd cost of housing such prisoners in the system, Booker’s program is something that would actually … wait for it… SAVE MONEY! No wonder this guy’s polling at just 2% among the Democrat Party’s demented voter base. He hasn’t a prayer.

Amy Klobuchar – The most abusive candidate in the race rolled out a list of dozens of actions she would take during her first 100 days in office, many of which would cost our nation hundreds of billions of dollars. Each. Among the most costly is the very first one on the list, which is to get our country back into the fraudulent Paris Climate Accords, which is nothing but a scheme to redistribute American wealth to all other countries on the face of the earth. That one alone will be worth 3 shots of tequila when she brags about it during the debate.

Kirsten Gillibrand – It appears the most inexplicable candidate nominally in the race for some reason has completely given up, since the only new proposal I could find her talking about over the last few days came when she told the New York Times that her favorite comfort food is…whiskey.

Now, that’s a campaign I could get behind!

Stock up on the Patron and Jose Cuervo, folks, it’s gonna be a long and expensive couple of nights.

That is all.

6 Big Reasons Why The Next 10 Days Are Crucial For Oil Markets

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

Here is a rundown of six big factors and events impacting crude prices as the first half of 2019 nears its end.

The “fear premium” redux. – Crude prices rose dramatically on Thursday after it was revealed that Iran’s Revolutionary Guard shot an unmanned U.S. drone out of the sky as it flew near the strategic Strait of Hormuz. Oil markets are always sensitive to any conflict taking place near this key choke point, through which about 20% of global crude supply makes its way to market each day.

President Donald Trump’s cautious approach to responding to Iran’s latest provocation appeared to calm the markets on Friday . After jumping by more than 5% in Thursday’s trading, WTI rose by slightly less than 1% Friday.

Rather than escalating armed conflict with a conventional military response, the Associated Press reported Saturday that President Trump had ordered a cyber attack on computer systems that control Iran’s rocket and missile launchers. That report was based purely on anonymous sources, but if it turns out be accurate, such a non-violent approach could further calm touchy  markets on Monday.

The jump in crude price isn’t only about Iran. – While most reports attributed last week’s 10% rise in crude prices to the situation with Iran, the reality is that the price had already run up by 5% by close of trading on Wednesday. In fact, WTI actually dropped to $51.79/bbl on Monday due to ongoing bearish factors, before jumping up to $54.05 in Tuesday’s trading after President Trump tweeted early that morning that he and Chinese President Xi Jinping would be holding side meetings at the upcoming G-20 Summit in Japan. Wednesday’s report from the U.S. Energy Information Administration that crude inventories had dropped the previous week also kept the upwards price momentum going before news of the Iran strike broke.

A Lost Weekend Back Home Gives us a Peek at the Reality of Mayor Pete

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

What, you mean I have to keep doing my job? Why didn’t someone tell me? – Pete Buttigieg got an unpleasant reminder late last week, when he found out he had to actually return to South Bend, Indiana, the town of 100,000 – you know, about the number of people who try to get tickets to the average Trump rally – where he still happens to be mayor.

There, he found a small group of Black Lives Matter protesters, courtesy of George Soros, who were expressing anger over a recent police shooting of a black man in the city, a shooting that the officer’s body camera mysteriously failed to record.  Imagine that. Mayor Pete managed to offend these protesters immediately by reading from a prepared script as he addressed them.  I kid you not:

Image result for buttigieg reading from script black lives matter protesters

Boy, that’s a great look, huh? He looks like a 15 year-old high school sophomore participating in his first debate class. One mystery here is why does he need that hand-held mike? There were only about 20 people there – he can’t speak loudly enough to be heard without amplification?

Horrible optics that should get some campaign aides fired aside, the weekend was a lost one for Mayor Pete, one in which he had to cancel several scheduled presidential campaign events to return home and pretend to be doing the job he’s been ignoring since March. As luck would have it, a mass shooting broke out while he was in town, one that the preponderance of our fake news media completely ignored in service to their favorite Democrat “rising star.”

From the AP report linked above:

Violence flared again in South Bend early Sunday when a shooting at a pub left a Michigan man dead. Police identified the man as Brandon Williams, 27, of Niles, Michigan. Another 10 people suffered gunshot injuries in South Bend Sunday, the St. Joseph County Metro Homicide Unit said. Five of the wounded remained in hospital in stable condition later Sunday. County Sheriff William Redmond said his officers assisted South Bend police in controlling a crowd of more than 100 “upset and angry citizens” who came from the pub to the hospital where the wounded were taken. It was not immediately clear what prompted the shooting.

That’s a total of 11 people shot, one killed, in a town of 100,000 in a single bar in a single day. Boy, that Mayor Pete is doing one whale of a job, huh?

Our intrepid public semi-servant then held a town hall on the police shooting Sunday evening, and that event went totally downhill almost before it began. After the mayor and police chief seemed to blame the victims of the bar shooting for getting shot, one woman had had enough:

“I don’t understand how you expect anyone to talk about respect in an oppressed society,” she told the city leaders. “What is respect in an oppressed society? How can you blame the victims of last night in an oppressed society?”

Another woman told a reporter from the LA Times present for the town hall this:

“You might as well just withdraw your name from the presidential race,” the woman sitting next to me murmurs. “His presidential campaign is over… I believe that today ended his campaign.”

The same reporter had tweeted the following a few minutes after the town hall had begun:

“Very, very hostile town hall for Pete Buttigieg over a police shooting in South Bend. The crowd gets upset and angry when a representative for Al Sharpton is the first to take the mic for questions from the crowd. This thing is teetering on the edge of chaos.”

Now, the picture our fake news media has given us of Mayor Pete is one of a totally wonderful Mayor whose city runs like a well-oiled machine. Everybody loves Mayor Pete, and all is sweetness and light in his city. Yesterday, we saw a different reality of South Bend, one of a smallish city torn by racial strife, a city whose Black citizens feel ignored and abused by local officials.

Although the media has done its best to hide it from us, we also saw a different side of Buttigieg himself. Instead of the self-assured talking points parrot who so slickly fields questions from friendly reporters on television, we saw a squeamish, halting man-child who must resort to reading from a script when confronted by unfriendly protesters. We saw a kid who can’t manage a town whose entire population would fit into Darrell K. Royal Texas Memorial Stadium in Austin, but who is now asking us to put him in charge of a nation of 330 million.

At the end of the town hall, Mayor Pete promised the angry crowd that “This is the beginning of a conversation that will continue.”

You get the feeling that they’ve all heard that one before, and aren’t real happy about the follow-up, or lack thereof. Anyone willing to take a flyer on having the same outcome for the entire country is in need of some special counseling.

The Week in Review: Yet Another Lost Week for the Democrats

The Campaign Update Week in Review
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Oh, so they have to lie, then? – The week started with former Colorado Governor and current hopeless presidential candidate John Hickenlooper becoming so distraught about his party’s race to the farthest extent of the far, far, far, far left that he felt the need to tell an interviewer that “I feel strongly that Democrats have to draw a clear line and say, ‘We are not socialists.'” Not a good look, Dems.

Sunday also saw yet another smear strategy against President Donald Trump die an ugly death. Trump had thrown the entire Democrat/Media propaganda complex into a four-day fit of apoplexy on June 13 when he told the little Clinton toady George Stephanolpoulous that he “would probably listen” if someone from another country called and said he had damaging information about a political opponent. Sensing an opportunity to damage the President, the Democrats and their media stooges spent the next 96 hours trying to convince Americans that that statement was somehow proof that he had personally worked with Putin to fix the 2016 election.

What it all really did was remind everyone that a) Robert Mueller had mounted a 2-year Witch Hunt trying to find evidence that such a thing had happened and failed to come up with anything and b) that the Clinton Campaign had laundered $11 million through the DNC, a law firm and a PR firm to pay foreign agents, mostly from Russia, to try to dig up dirt on her opponent. Apparently the Democrats got some really bad polling information on this smear Sunday afternoon, because the that particular narrative completely disappeared from the nation’s airwaves after about 4:00 p.m. that day, which must have been when the memo went out to everyone. Because that is what they do.

Image may contain: 1 person, sitting and text

Monday dawned with great news from Mexico, news that reminded everyone of another utterly failed Democrat/media narrative, which held that the President’s threat to impose tariffs on the failed state to the south would produce no results. We found out Monday that it was producing all sorts of great results in slowing the flow of illegals up from Central America, so the media immediately changed the subject. Because that, again, is what they do.

As the Democrat Clown Car of Mediocrities rolled out their presidential campaign messages to “crowds” of literally dozens of supporters – Eric Swalwell drew exactly 18 for a gun control rally on Monday –  Tuesday gave us clip after clip of thousands of Trump supporters spending as much as 40 hours in line and actually holding tailgate parties awaiting the President’s formal campaign kickoff announcement in Orlando, Florida.

Of course, none of the broadcast networks carried the event, something they had always done for previous incumbents announcing their re-election campaigns, and the petulant creeps at CNN cut away after the President led the crowd in a chant of “CNN sucks!” Because that, yet again, is what they do.

Tuesday also gave us a social media clip of a half-drunk de facto Speaker of the House Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez telling her brain dead fans that the border detention centers being used to temporarily house illegal aliens while their bogus asylum claims are being processed are exactly the same thing as Hitler slaughtering 6 million Jews in concentration camps. As if to amplify their Party’s ongoing lurch to disgusting antisemitism, not a single Democrat leader could summon the intellectual honesty to disavow AOC’s despicable remarks.

By Wednesday, Creepy Uncle Joe Biden, the nation’s Unfrozen Caveman Senator, was being blasted by his fellow presidential candidates for bragging about how he used to get stuff done in the senate by paling around with all those old segregationists of the 1970s. The media let that narrative go on for two solid days before they suddenly realized that all it was doing was reminding everyone that all those segregationists were in fact members of the Democrat Party. Ooopsie.

Also on Wednesday, we found out that the Broadway play about Slick Willie and the Fainting Felon, “Hillary and Clinton”, was shutting down its run early due to … wait for it … low ticket sales. Interestingly, this is the same reason why Slick and the Pantsuit Princess shut down their nationwide tour of evening events months ahead of time. There’s a message in all of this somewhere… wonder what is might be?

Thursday brought us film of Democrat hero Angela Merkel shaking uncontrollably, like Beto O’Rourke giving a campaign speech, as she stood for the German national anthem at a public event. If Merkel were a member of America’s Democrat Party, she’d be a part of its youth movement.

The Democrats’ whole “fossil fuels cause global warming” narrative took a big hit the same day when Canada’s child leader Justin Trudeau declared a “climate emergency” in one breath, and then approved a major oil pipeline in his next. I swear I don’t make this stuff up – who could?

The week got even worse for the anti-American party known as the Democrats when, after it was revealed that Iran had shot down an unmanned U.S. drone flying in international air space, each and every member of the Democrat Party knee-jerked to parroting the Iranian Mullahs’ talking points. Here is California Democrat Jackie Speier, for example:

By Friday, it became obvious that while everyone, Democrats and Republicans alike, was knee-jerking to their favorite talking points, President Trump was the lone adult in the room, speaking in measured tones about the situation and carefully considering all of his options instead of taking action that would end up with innocent people dying.

On that same day we found out that the hacks at USA Today were sitting on polling results showing the President with a 49% public approval rating, the highest he has ever attained in that particular poll. Because that, one more time, is what those people do.

Oh, yeah, it was also Friday when we discovered that Creepy Uncle Joe’s creepy son, Hunter Biden, had fathered a child with a 25 year-old Arkansas woman while he was engaged in an affair with his late brother’s widow, and had refused to take responsibility for the child. My goodness.

The Democrats in the House continued their party’s ongoing War on Women – and on little girls – when they unanimously passed a bill that would force school girls to compete with trans-genders born as males in sporting events. Think about that for a second: The vote was unanimous. Not a single Democrat representative sees anything unfair in this. Unreal.

To close out Friday, candidate Swalwell promised that, as his first act upon taking office, he would summarily fire President Trump’s son-in-law, Jared Kushner. This is just one of many problematic promises the unintentionally-hilarious Swalwell keeps making, given that 1) Kushner is not actually on the government payroll, and 2) by the time a “President Swalwell” took office – an event that will thankfully never happen – Kushner would have already been long-gone away from Washington in any event.

The Democrat/media propaganda complex closed out its lost week by pounding the obviously false story shamefully published in New York Magazine, that, while married to Marla Maples, one of the most beautiful women on the face of the earth 25 years ago, Donald Trump was out raping homely, 52 year-old matrons.

The claim is being made by a pathetic wretch who is hawking a book, and is so blatantly false that even some mainstream media outlets have refused to join in the narrative, a fact that caused Democrat water-boy Chris Hayes to whine on Twitter:

You just really cannot make this stuff up, folks.

And thus, another completely lost week for the Democrats goes into the books.  Couldn’t happen to a more deserving bunch of people.

Trump Will do the Right Thing for America in Response to Iran

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

Huh. Guess he must have been hanging out with Bill Clinton. – Joe Biden’s wayward son, Hunter Biden, was sued yesterday by a 28 year-old woman in Arkansas for refusing to accept responsibility for the son he allegedly fathered with her. This is not a case of ancient history coming back to haunt him, either, as the child is just 10 months old. Even more disgustingly, the fathering of the child came during a time when the horndog Hunter was involved in a relationship with the widow of his late brother, Beau Biden.

Holy cow.

The lawsuit comes at a rather inconvenient time for Hunter, who became fabulously wealthy while his Pop was selling his influence as Vice President – no doubt emulating the Hillary Clinton game plan – as Hunter just recently got married, but to yet another woman named Melissa Cohen.

A quick Google search indicates this scandalous news – which would justifiably be above-the-fold, massive headlines were it about the son of any Republican – was not reported by the New York Times, the Washington Post, CNN, MSNBC, NBC, ABC 0r CBS.  Imagine that.

Tired of all this WINNING yet? – The S&P 500 closed at yet another all-time high on Thursday. Donald Trump says, “you’re welcome.”

Speaking of President Donald Trump, be glad he’s in that office. – The Pantsuit Princess, who famously cackled and bragged about taking out Mohamar Gadaffi (and thus throwing Libya into a seemingly endless civil war), would have been getting our military personnel killed in yet another Middle East war with Iran long ago, and would still have us fiddling around doing nothing much effective with ISIS in Syria.

Lindsey Graham is no different. His years of following John McCain around like a little puppy dog come out every time anyone in the Middle East so much as shouts boo!, so yesterday’s downing of a U.S. drone by Iran’s radical Islamic government threw Bad Lindsey into a fit of McCain-like war-mongering. Here’s what he told reporters in an impromptu press gaggle yesterday:

“My ‘red line’ is if there’s any more disruption of shipping in the Strait of Hormuz that’s linked to Iran,” the South Carolina Republican said. “Take out their navy, bomb their refineries if there’s any more attacks on American interests.”

Oh. Well, hey, at least he didn’t go where McCain always went, and recommend putting 200,000 or more U.S. soldiers on the ground:

“Go after Iran so that they’ll…feel pain,” he continued. “I’m not talking about invading Iran, I’m not talking about a land invasion. If they go back into the enrichment business at a level that would lead to a nuclear weapon, we need to sit down with Israel and other allies and come up with a way to stop it.”

Glad he’s not talking about McCain’s longed-for ground invasion, but he is talking about putting our fighter and bomber pilots at great risk, given that Iran just proved its air defenses can shoot down a drone that typically operates at 60,000 feet. Are we really all ready to see Americans start coming back home from that god-forsaken part of the world in body bags again? Isn’t it enough that we still see this happen occasionally due to our continued presence in the sh*thole country that is Afghanistan after 18 long years?

Donald Trump was not elected to get us involved in more wars – he was elected to end the ones he inherited from the war-mongering 16 years that preceded his Inauguration. When he took office, President Trump inherited a situation in which the U.S. military was actively involved in no fewer than seven different civil wars across the Middle East and Africa. Although we still remain in Afghanistan with a diminished presence, he has otherwise greatly reduced U.S. involvement, destroying ISIS in Syria before dramatically reducing our presence in that unalterable sh*thole as well.

Despite the constant drumbeat by our fake news media that he is somehow himself a “war-monger”, the truth is that Trump’s conduct of foreign affairs has dramatically scaled back international tensions all over the world. There is no magic to this – this is what has always happened whenever a Republican president has projected U.S. policy from a position of strength.

Where the Coughing Crooks of the world delight in throwing entire nations into interminable chaos with ill-advised (and illegal) assassinations, and neo-cons like Graham invariably knee-jerk to screaming for bombing runs, the truth is that President Trump has an array of options for responding to Iran’s latest provocation that do not involve getting our own people killed. Thankfully, while every craven politician in both parties knee-jerks to inflammatory talking points, the President is calmly taking the time to consider all of his options before jumping to a response.

Trump may ultimately decide that taking out some Iranian refineries and gunships is the appropriate response here, but everyone screaming for that particular escalation of the conflict must understand that that will inevitably result in a spike in oil prices, which will in turn drive up gasoline prices at the pump. The price for crude has already jumped up 10% this week – are you really ready for another 20% or even more?

Or maybe the President might decide to cool the rhetoric – which he was already doing yesterday, if you were paying attention – and authorize the conduct of cyber-attacks on Iran’s digital infrastructure, which could be done completely behind the scenes and could be devastating to the Mullahs’ regime.

What President Trump is not going to do is be bullied by aggressive advisors or Lindsey Graham or Chuck Schumer or anyone else into sending our armed forces into harm’s way unless he is 100% certain that he doesn’t really have another choice. If he does choose that route, you should expect his response to be disproportionately large and extremely effective.

Whatever action he takes, you can be sure he will take it because it is best for America. Because that is what he was elected to do, and this President, unlike his recent predecessors, keeps his promises.

That is all.

The Biden Agonistes are Just Beginning

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

Creepy Uncle Joe steps in it again. – Joe Biden’s status as the Unfrozen Caveman Senator in the Democrat presidential race took another ugly turn this week when, in a Tuesday fundraising speech in New York, Biden praised former segregationist Democrat senators he served with waaaaayyyyyy back in the ’70s like Herman Talmage and James Eastland. This naturally set off a round of shameless virtue-signaling from his white opponents and fits of moral outrage from his black opponents – Cory Booker and Kamala Harris – who have made a career of trading on identity politics.

So, what did the nation’s Creepy Uncle say that was so offensive? Here’s how the fake reporters at the AP characterize it in their piece this morning:

The controversy began at a New York fundraiser Tuesday when Biden pointed to long-dead segregationist senators James Eastland of Mississippi and Herman Talmadge of Georgia to argue that Washington functioned more smoothly a generation ago than under today’s “broken” hyperpartisanship.

“We didn’t agree on much of anything,” Biden said of the two men, who were prominent senators when Biden was elected in 1972. Biden described Talmadge as “one of the meanest guys I ever knew” and said Eastland called him “son,” though not “boy,” a reference to the racist way many whites addressed black men at the time.

Booker, Harris and all their white companions desperate to grab a share of the “black vote”, as the Democrats love to call it, rushed to condemn Biden for praising segregationists for being “civil.” But of course, the trouble with that criticism is that that part of what Biden said was actually true – the U.S. Senate of the ’70s did exhibit a remarkable level of bipartisanship and civility in addressing issues, especially when compared with the hyperpartisan crap show we see in the “world’s greatest deliberative body” today.

But if Biden’s virtue-signaling, moral outrage-expressing opponents had a lick of sense and honesty – which we know they don’t since they’re all Democrats – they’d attack him for the blatant, outright lie that truly stands out in those two AP paragraphs, which is his statement that “We didn’t agree on much of anything.”

My goodness. That took some nerve.

What was the litmus test on de-segregation when Biden took office in the senate back in 1973? Forced busing. Along with all the old Democrat segregationists in the senate at that time, like Talmadge, Eastland, Howell Heflin, Ernest Hollings, Sam Ervin and Robert Byrd, who was one of the loudest, most aggressive opponents of forced busing? If you said Joe Biden, you would be correct.

See, schools in the northeast during those years were every bit as segregated as those in the southern states. Indeed, Biden made his fierce opposition to forced busing a centerpiece of his initial campaign for the senate. It is fair to credit that position on that key issue largely for his election to the senate in the first place.

Then there was Biden’s ardent opposition to that other litmus test for helping the nation’s African American population at that time, racial quotas in hiring and school admissions, which proponents like to call “Affirmative Action.” Like his southern senate colleagues, Good ol’ Joe was dead set against those as well.

Don’t believe me? Here is what he told a Delaware reporter in 1975:

I do not buy the concept, popular in the ‘60s, which said, ‘We have suppressed the black man for 300 years and the white man is now far ahead in the race for everything our society offers. In order to even the score, we must now give the black man a head start, or even hold the white man back, to even the race.’ I don’t buy that. I don’t feel responsible for the sins of my father and grandfather. I feel responsible for what the situation is today, for the sins of my own generation. And I’ll be damned if I feel responsible to pay for what happened 300 years ago.”

Interesting quotes, huh? Especially interesting in light of yesterday’s shameful Democrat-staged hearing in the House on reparations.

Here’s the truth about Joe Biden: He agreed with the ’70s-era southern Democrat segregationists about pretty much everything, and wasn’t real shy about saying so at the time. Of course, everyone’s political views change over time, and Biden is no doubt no exception.

But this long record of publicly spouting off and all those thousands of votes he took over 36 years in the Senate are, as I keep trying tell everyone, a very big and real problem for Biden, and a big reason why he ultimately will not be the party’s nominee in 2020. It will be a long, slow death by 1,000 cuts. There are literally dozens more really bad days still to come for Biden, days when the media and his opponents will hit him with all the stupid stuff he said back in the ’70s, ’80s, ’90s and ’00s.

Even the ’10s, come to think of it, because saying stupid stuff has always been Joe Biden’s real stock in trade, and in that, he has definitely not evolved.

That is all.

The Democrat/Media “Concentration Camp” Narrative Kicks Off Right On Cue

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

I hate to say I told you so, but, well, I told you so. – Way back in December of 2016, I warned readers about some of the coming narratives Democrats and the fake news media would push in their unending efforts to damage then-President-elect Donald Trump. One of those narratives I warned everyone to look out for was the narrative that the same border detention centers run for 8 years by Barack Hussein Obama his own self without a second’s notice from our fake news media would suddenly come to be characterized as “concentration camps” and “death camps” by the same fake news media and its Democrat masters.

Well, it took more than two years and the failed outcome of the Mueller Witch Hunt for them to get there, but this turns out to be the week that this narrative came to life. The kickoff event came Sunday evening when the new face of the Democrat Party, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, had a few glasses of cheap wine and decided to post this video on her Facebook page:

So, there you go: As predictable as the sun rising in the east, the latest Democrat/media narrative has been born.

Of course, the thing to remember about AOC is that she is most likely completely ignorant of the fact that Obama ran exactly the same detention center program that the Trump Administration is managing. I mean, she’s abjectly ignorant about everything else, so it’s a safe bet, right?

It’s also important to remember that the nitwit from the Bronx is also nothing but a performance artist, a puppet whose scripts are written and strings are pulled by a group called the “Justice Democrats,” which is led by a completely depraved radical named Cenk Uygur. The Campaign Update covered all of this back in March, but if you didn’t watch the video below then, take 20 minutes to look at it now – it’s a terrific expose’ about her and Uygur’s real relationship:

Now, San Fran Nan and the rest of the evil leadership of the DNC may or may not have wanted to roll this particular false narrative out at this time. But AOC has proven to be virtually impossible to control for any extended period of time, and now that she has rolled the narrative out there, the Party is basically stuck with it, whether it wanted to be or not.

As a result, we will now be seeing this kind of babbling idiot talking head become a constant fixture on CNN and MSNBC, as the fake media toadies do their duty of supporting the Democrat narrative:

It’s disgusting, it’s despicable and it is a depraved assault on the integrity of our law enforcement officials and military personnel who are doing their best to cope with a flood of Central American illegals whose “caravans” are also a form of performance art, organized by Soros-funded groups who have the same anti-American ideology held by Uygur and the Justice Democrats.

But this is your Democrat Party and its media toadies in action, folks. You continue to vote for them at your own peril.

P.S.: One other inevitable narrative I warned about in that December 2016 piece was that the Democrat/media propaganda axis would suddenly rediscover the problem of the “homeless” in our country after 8 years of pretending it didn’t exist while Obama was in office. They haven’t gotten around to blaming Trump for the teeming masses of such folks who now occupy the streets of Democrat-run cities like Los Angeles and San Francisco, but you can bet that one’s coming, too, at some point.

My guess is that the Party leaders want to hold that one in reserve for next year, when the presidential campaign is fully underway. But with the likes of AOC and Ilhan Omar going off the reservation so frequently, they may not be able to control the timing of it, either.

But again, that narrative is also inevitable – it’s like page 33 of the Democrat/Media playbook.

Why Are Leftist Politicians Always “Dehydrated”?

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

When will these leftists learn how to drink water? – BREAKING: We have an epidemic of dehydration breaking out among leaders of the globalist left! Check out this video of German despot Angela Merkel coming down with a case of the shakes at an outdoor ceremony yesterday with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky:

After this disturbing video was taken, Merkel told her willing accomplices in the press that she was suffering from “dehydration” and was just peachy after she went behind closed doors for a bit and drank some water. So that’s the narrative the fake news media has parrotted to the public.

What is it with these evil globalist/leftists and their seeming inability to consume water before they go out and collapse in public? I mean, who could forget this scene of the Fainting Felon…well…fainting and having to literally be thrown into her mobile hospital van by her aides as she fled the scene of a 9/11 ceremony in New York City back during the 2016 campaign?

Or how about this one, of Jerrold Nadler almost passing out cold while seated at a recent outdoor event in New York?

Nadler had to be rushed to a nearby emergency room following this incident.

Both the Coughing Crook and Jabba the Nadler also blamed their public displays of dysfunction on the handy excuse of “dehydration.” It seems to be the stock excuse used by evil leftist politicians whenever the fall ill in public.

The consistency of the excuse/narrative also tells us that it is most likely a line of smelly BS. There was a reason why the Fainting Felon traveled around in that black van during the 2016 campaign, a van that was equipped like your basic EMS vehicle: She was suffering from an array of very obvious ailments, as signaled by her constant fits of uncontrolled coughing in the middle of speeches and the fact that she has to be helped by at least one strong person to climb even a few stairs to a podium.

Jabba the Nadler used to weigh about 600 pounds, as you can see here:

He’s lost much of that weight over the years, but is still a short little munchkin who is massively overweight. Interestingly, he seems to still be wearing the same suits, as his pants now come up to his bust line. No telling what sort of actual ailments he is dealing with.

Evil Angela, as can clearly be seen in the video above, is also woefully out of shape, and her grey pallor makes her look like a walking heart attack.

Perhaps this is just the lot in life for those who, like these three, make the projection of outright evil their life’s pursuit. Or perhaps, given the state of modern medical care, all of these individuals most likely consume several prescription medications every day, especially given their ages and poor physical conditions: Merkel is 64, the Fainting Felon is 71, Nadler is 72. Many such modern medications can lead to dehydration, especially when taken with other unrelated medications.

Everything on the political left is a narrative in action, even when its advocates become publicly ill. The stock narrative for that is “dehydration.” Because, hey, when you are a leftist politician there is no reason to tell the truth, since you know the fake news media is just going to parrot your lies.

That is all.

Trump Thinks it’s Time to Let the [Limited] Deportations Begin

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

Well, this is interesting. – Stuff is about to get real on the border, folks. Last night, President Donald Trump sent out these tweets, sending the fake news media into yet another round of hysteria:

So, what does that mean, exactly? The AP says this, from an anonymous source, of course: “An administration official said the effort would focus on the more than 1 million people who have been issued final deportation orders by federal judges but remain at large in the country. The official spoke on condition of anonymity to explain the president’s tweets.”

It will be interesting, to say the least, to see how much support the President has to make this move towards a limited deportation effort. When he first began talking about possible deportations in the summer of 2015, I wrote that the public would never tolerate an effort to deport all of the estimated 11 million illegal immigrants in the U.S. I still believe that, in 2015, he would have had virtually no public support for such an effort.

But today, I suspect we will find that the public is in a completely different mood, or at least a large portion of it is. After watching this organized effort by Democrat/Soros-backed activist groups to overwhelm the country with massive “caravans” of people from Central America and seeing neither party in congress make the slightest effort to do anything about it, you can be sure that the 43-44% of the public who make up Trump’s base today will fully support this limited effort to deport the scofflaws whose cases have already been determined to have no merit under our asylum laws, and you can bet a sizable portion of independents will as well.

The media will of course put out a series of quick fake polls showing the opposite, because this is what our fake news media does. They are all-in with the Democrats and establishment Republican on turning the U.S. into just another third-world country in the name of some fool’s notion of “fairness,” and will continue to execute from their well-established playbook.

In the meantime, much has been happening begin to slow the flow of illegal immigrants up through Mexico since the President’s threat to implement tariffs:

  • AMLO, Mexico’s President, actually sold his private jet to help fund efforts to halt the caravans at Mexico’s southern border;
  • Mexico’s parliament is considering funding a border wall of its own;
  • Mexico has arrested multiple activists known to be organizers of the caravans;
  • Just yesterday, Mexico announced it had intercepted four tractor-trailer trucks packed with an estimated 800 illegals from Central America;
  • The State Department announced that it will withhold more than $550 million in foreign aid to El Salvador, Honduras and Guatemala until those governments are able to show they are also making strong efforts to halt the flow of these politically-organized caravans. This is the motivation behind Guatemala’s sudden willingness to sign a “safe-third nation” agreement, which will require illegals coming into their country to apply for asylum there rather than moving up into Mexico and the U.S.

Hey, it turns out that, despite the fake media narrative to the contrary, threats of tariffs and withholding of aid do work after all. Go figure.

The other interesting aspect of all of this is that the President chose to make this announcement the night before his campaign kickoff rally in Orlando, Florida. Take a look a this clip to understand the excitement that has built around that announcement:

Trump rallies have become our nation’s latest tailgate party opportunity, where thousands of folks were already getting in line outside the 25,000-seat arena 40 hours before the event. The Trump Campaign reports it has had more than 75,000 requests for tickets to the event. By comparison, the more than 130 “Impeach Trump” rallies held over the weekend were virtually empty, such an utter bomb that the fake news media had to find something else to focus on.

Democrats who claim that this kind of massive demonstration of support has no meaning in the race are doing exactly what Republicans were doing back in 2008, when they made the same claims about the big turnouts at Obama rallies: Whistling past their political graveyards. Enthusiasm is everything in presidential politics.

The Democrats and their media toadies brainwashed the public into electing an Alinskyite activist to the presidency in 2008. Today, the Democrat Party is presenting us with an array of Alinskyite activists trying to repeat that feat.

Trump’s growing base of support has woke to that particular scam.

That is all.
