AOC and Mad Maxine: The Prophets of Democrat Mendacity and Ignorance

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

Liberals: It’s not what they don’t know that’s the problem, it’s what they “know” that just isn’t so. – The multi-generational ignorance of Democrat Party leaders was on display over the weekend, and it is glorious.

First up was the elderly face of the Democrat Party, 80 year-old Maxine Waters, who was apparently off her meds and went off into a dementia-driven rant during an interview at the NAACP’s Image Awards. First, she outrageously compared the congressional Democrats’ absurd requests for the release of an unredacted Mueller report and all of its background documentation to … wait for it…oh, you have to wait for this one…APARTHEID. I swear I do not make this stuff up – who could?

She then clearly demonstrated she has no clue about the size of the Mueller report, saying “No matter what has been revealed thus far and there’s only four pages of what appears to be a report of about, maybe somewhere between 3,000, 4,000 pages.”  Oh. For accuracy’s sake, pretty much every media outlet in America has reported that Mueller’s report consists of about 300 pages, so Waters was only off by a factor of about 10, which is far closer than she normally gets to the reality of any given situation.

But the best part of Mad Maxine’s rant about the absolute, irreversible necessity for she and her despicable colleagues in congress to get their grasping claws on every shred of paper Mueller and his team generated, is her statement that, well, they really don’t need it after all:

“And so, no matter what this report is thus far, we have seen enough. We have seen right before our very eyes the obstruction of justice in so many ways.” Oh. Ok. So it’s absolutely, 100% mandatory that you see the whole report and all of its documentation, but you’ve seen enough already, and really don’t need to see any of it at all. Gotcha.

Next up in the Democrat Party Parade of Nitwits was another Usual Suspect, the spoiled child Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.  AOC, as she likes to be called, doesn’t have advancing age as a rationalization for her complete lack of acquaintance with reality – with her, it just plain damn ignorance compounded by absolute arrogance.

Given a three-hour platform by her willing accomplices at MSNBC to pitch her imbecilic “Green New Deal” to America’s growing legion of mind-numbed masses, AOC preached (and as Grabien News notes, it was without question a religious event) about all manner of Socialist nitwittery to the adoration of the carefully-constructed, invited audience. As it always is with her, as long as she was sticking to the array of talking points written for her by her “Justice Democrats” handlers, the Bronx Bartender did fine.

The problem came when she decided to ad lib from those messages, as when she rewrote history by claiming that some nebulous “they” amended the U.S. constitution to boot Franklin Roosevelt out of office:

“They had to amend the Constitution of the United States to make sure Roosevelt did not get reelected.”

Because, of course, rewriting history is always one of the first goals of Marxist thugs in taking over any country. For the record, FDR passed away while serving his fourth term in 1945. The 22nd amendment, which limits president’s to two full terms in office, was enacted by the nebulous “they” in 1947.

Then, there was this handy justification for government control of the means of production:

“We are dealing with a crisis of how our economy is made up. Our economy is increasingly financialized. Which means we’re making profits off of interest and off of leasing your phones, off of doing all these things, but we’re not producing and we’re not innovating in the way we need to as an economy.”

What a load of fresh, smelly horse manure that is.

Again, for the record, our economy is booming, performing better during 2018 than it has in well over a decade. America over the past two years has seen a massive rebirth in its manufacturing sector, which has produced hundreds of thousands of jobs and hundreds of billions of dollars in investments, and our society has over the last 20 years experienced a level of technological innovation that vastly surpasses any period in human existence and would be considered absolutely miraculous by anyone born prior to the 20th century.

What AOC and Mad Maxine show us is that abject ignorance and despicable mendacity are not things bound by age, generation or personal experience. These people live in their own made-up dream world, and unfortunately, that dream world is shared by millions of similarly ignorant Americans.

Which precisely describes the basic working model for today’s Democrat Party.

That is all.

Uncle Joe’s Creepiness Comes Back to Haunt Him

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

Uncle Joe’s creepiness comes back to haunt him – and this is just the beginning.  – The fake news media will do its dead-level best to kill this story, but it’s out there now, and there are lots more just like it.

In case you get your “news” from one of the major broadcast networks and missed it, a former Nevada assemblywoman and Democrat #MeToo activist, Lucy Flores, is accusing Creepy Joe Biden of groping and kissing her at a campaign event in 2014. Here is how she describes the incident:

“I was taking deep breaths and preparing myself to make my case to the crowd, I felt two hands on my shoulders. I froze. “Why is the vice-president of the United States touching me?” I felt him get closer to me from behind. He leaned further in and inhaled my hair. I was mortified. I thought to myself, “I didn’t wash my hair today and the vice-president of the United States is smelling it. And also, what in the actual f*ck? Why is the vice-president of the United States smelling my hair?” He proceeded to plant a big slow kiss on the back of my head. My brain couldn’t process what was happening. I was embarrassed. I was shocked. I was confused. There is a Spanish saying, “tragame tierra,” it means, “earth, swallow me whole.” I couldn’t move and I couldn’t say anything. I wanted nothing more than to get Biden away from me. My name was called and I was never happier to get on stage in front of an audience.”

The truth, of course, is that Biden has made a habit of such inappropriate groping of women, girls and small children at public events throughout his political career. There are literally dozens of video clips of such incidents, with women and children visibly cringing as Biden puts his hands on them, snuggles into their hair and even kisses them right there on stage for all to see.

Biden’s supporters – which includes the preponderance of our fake news media, of course – have spent the last 40 years claiming it’s all fine, that Biden is somehow harmless, and that the women and kids really are enjoying it all. And of course, as they had been groped by a powerful senator and then vice president, the gropees have been reluctant to complain.

But times are changing, and social justice warriors like Ms. Flores are not going to just sit by quietly and take this sort of abuse.

We also have stories out there in the public domain about Biden making a habit of taking nude midnight swims in front of secret service agents, some of them women.

Again, the fake news media will do all it can to keep covering for Creepy Uncle Joe, but that is going to be far, far harder to do in today’s social media-dominated world.

All of which may be one of the reasons why the guy who is leading the Democrat polls is taking so long to formally announce his campaign. There’s a lot to try to explain away here, and the elderly ex-VP may not be up to that job.

That is all.

Six More Years of “President Donald Trump”? Magic 8-ball says “Most Likely”

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

Hey, when he’s right, he’s right.  – At a rally in Michigan last night, President Donald Trump (I never tire of typing those three glorious words) put the exact right label on the Democrats’ refusal to drop the whole Russia Collusion fantasy in the wake of the end of the Mueller “investigation,” referring to their ongoing propaganda campaign as “ridiculous bullshit.”

Here’s the full quote:

“The Democrats have to now decide whether they will continue defrauding the public with ridiculous bullshit, partisan investigations, or whether they will apologize to the American people and join us to rebuild our crumbling infrastructure, bring down the cost of health care and prescription drugs … help us fix our broken trade deals,” he said to the crowd.

Be honest:  One of the things that makes you a little bit uncomfortable about President Trump is that he so often expresses exactly what you were thinking but were reluctant to blurt out yourself. Coming as I do from a family of Texas over-cussers, I can think of no better way to describe the ongoing behavior of Democrats like Adam Schiff, Jabba the Nadler, Irish Bob O’Rourke and Eric Swalwell than to call it “ridiculous bullshit.” Because that’s what it is.

Personally, I appreciate the President for going ahead and saying it so I would feel justified myself repeating it several times in this morning’s Campaign Update. Because it is ridiculous bullshit – it just is.

Speaking of Trump’s rally in Michigan… – Democrats who poo-poo the President’s rallies as being insignificant are quite frankly whistling past the graveyard. Yesterday’s rally in Grand Rapids – a city of less than 200,000 – attracted more than 32,000 people. At one point, the line waiting to get into the Van Andel Arena stretched for more than a mile. As usual, the thousands who could not gain admittance into the facility stood outside and watched on giant TV screens.

This is not a one-time fluke – this happens over and over and over again at every rally the President holds. The Democrats and their fake news media flunkies want you to believe that this is a very unpopular POTUS, but his 50% approval rating in the Rasmussen survey tells another story, and his average public approval rating is higher than Ronald Reagan’s was at this point in his first term in office.

An unpopular, failing president would have a hard time attracting major crowds like this one. But these rallies have actually grown larger and more intense over time, not less so. Just as with the big Obama rallies in 2008, they are in fact a harbinger of a very strong candidate, an incumbent whose re-election chances are growing stronger by the day.

I don’t like to hyper-focus on polls since they are so unreliable, but the new Quinnipiac poll out this week it a good indicator of what an uphill climb the Democrats truly have in 2020. Here’s a link to The Hill’s report on this poll.

First, as The Hill notes in its blaring headline, Pete Buttigieg has “surged”, now getting 4% support in the Democrat horse race. Second, Fauxcahontas is mired way down in a tie with the 37 year-old mayor of South Bend, IN. Ouch. Things are just not working out for Little Mouth Always Running, are they?

Third, Irish Bob O’Rourke has very predictably moved past a fading Kamala Harris to capture 3rd place, pulling 12% to Harris’s 8%. Fourth, Creepy Joe Biden now holds a 10-point lead over the Commie at 29-19.

None of those results are in any way surprising to anyone who has been paying attention to the dynamics of this race, which is admittedly still in its very early stages.  Harris has thus far been a stumbling, bumbling disaster of a candidate, a prime example of someone whose time in the public spotlight came well before she was ready for it.

The Commie has his base of support, but finds it getting peeled away by all the other commies in the race, like Buttigieg, for example. It’s like he’s dying a death by a thousand cuts, as all the other craven candidates keep stealing his issues and policy positions.

Biden hasn’t even formally announced his candidacy yet, but continues to attract fairly strong early support on name recognition and his association with Obama. That Obama-glow will steadily wear away as the race goes on, and we will probably see “Peak Biden” as his polls surge in the week after his formal announcement, and then slowly but steadily fade as the long race drags on and the demented Democrat voter base wake up to who he really is.

So, none of that is any surprise at all.  But here is what is a surprise buried deep in the bowels of this poll:

Just 57% of the self-identified Democrats and Democrat-leaning registered voters polled in this survey say they will not vote for President Trump regardless of who the Democrat nominee is in 2020. That is an extraordinarily low percentage from this segment of society, meaning as it does that fully 43% of “Democrats and Democrat-leaning registered voters” are open to the idea of a second Trump term in office.

Ooof.

Get used to saying President Donald Trump, Democrats, because you most likely have 6 more years to do so.

That is all.

The Misplaced Priorities of the FBI and DOJ Protect the Deep State Seditionists

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

But…but…but wouldn’t that be double jeopardy? Answer: No.  – Corrupt Cook County State’s Attorney Kimberly Foxx and a corrupt state judge can fix things for Jussie Smollett at the state level, but there isn’t a thing they can do to help him out with federal crimes he may have committed in his effort to smear President Donald Trump and his millions of supporters.

Before he claimed to have been attacked by two MAGA-cap-wearing thugs – a claim the Chicago PD investigated and determined to have been laughably false – Smollett may have committed the federal crime of mail fraud. A week prior to that alleged assault, a threatening letter arrived at the offices of “Empire”, complete with “MAGA” smeared across the envelope.

Investigators suspect Smollett mailed the letter to himself in his pathological efforts to get himself a raise by convincing the TV series’ producers that he had become a widely-recognized star. You seriously cannot make this stuff up.

This would be a classic case of mail fraud, a federal crime for which Paul Manafort is, in part, spending the next 5 years in prison. Some legal talking heads are speculating further that Smollett could even be prosecuted under the federal hate crimes laws, given the Chicago PD’s belief that the fake assault he planned and paid for (with a personal check, no less) amounts to the commission of a hate crime against himself.  Awesome.

The President himself let it be known early Thursday morning that the DOJ  and FBI are actually on this particular case for once:

Which embarrassment are we talking about here, Mr. President – Smollett, Chicago’s corrupt politics, or the FBI and DOJ? – It’s a great question, isn’t it?

No doubt it’s a good thing that federal investigators will be trying to bring some real justice down around this despicable actor’s head, but it’s pretty hard to celebrate that without noting at the same time the ongoing, abject failure of the DOJ to assert similar justice on those who spent all of 2016 trying to fix the presidential election and all of 2017 and 2018 attempting to execute a coup d’etat.

It seems the FBI and DOJ have all sorts of assets to dedicate to chasing a 3rd-tier actor or rich parents who bribe universities to admit their under-performing children – an investigation to which the FBI bragged it had dedicated no less than 300(!) agents. But when it comes to indicting and raiding the homes and perp-walking deep state snakes like James Comey, Sally Yates, Andrew McCabe and Peter Strzok, well, suddenly they apparently can’t be bothered to lift a finger.

And what of John Brennan, the Obama-era CIA Director and living embodiment of “Homeland” character Dar Adal? Here is a guy who has leveraged his experience as a former spymaster into a lucrative “analyst” gig with MSNBC, from which perch he has spent the last two years accusing the sitting President of committing treason.

Talk about projection – this guy was involved in this deep state coup up to his wrinkled neck. It has been public knowledge for well over a year that he in fact was involved in the authorization of the use of the fake Trump Dossier to obtain the FISA warrants needed to spy on the Trump Campaign and Transition team. Senator Rand Paul apparently just discovered this reality on Wednesday, and issued this tweet in response:

Yes, he should be subpoenaed to testify under oath – although he would not doubt just lie to congress as he has done multiple times in the past.

But more than that, he should be under a focused investigation by the U.S. Department of Justice and the FBI that it oversees. If we have a legitimate, respectable system of justice, he and all the others named above and many more should be the subject of grand jury investigations involving massive dedication of FBI resources, just like all those celebrity parents were. In “Homeland”, the Dar Adal character ended up in prison. It’s fun to envision his real-life personification joining him there, but there is precious little visible evidence that anyone at DOJ is working to make that happen.

Our President just survived a slow-rolling coup attempt guided by Gestapo Chief, er, “Special Counsel” Robert Mueller. The people who led that attempt must not be allowed to walk away from it unscathed by the justice system.

So, yes, by all means, let the DOJ go after Jussie Smollett and toss him in the federal pen if he is indeed guilty.  But let’s not pretend that doing that should be the DOJ’s highest priority.

There are so many bigger fish to fry, and it’s long past time we saw someone who works for William Barr heating up the grease.

Trump Caps off a Terrific Tuesday by Using the “T” Word

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

What the media won’t tell you about the Jussie Smollett whitewash…  – So, Jussie got off scott-free, and I don’t want to hear anyone talk to me about “white privilege” ever again. Talk to the hand, ‘cuz the ears ain’t listening.

Cook County state’s attorney Kimberly Foxx demonstrated yet again (as if we needed reminding) that Chicago politics are every bit as corrupt today as they were when Al Capone ran the city by allowing Smollett to skate on 16 felony charges brought after an exhaustive investigation by the Chicago police, saying that his “community service” and the forfeiting of his 10 grand in bail money constitutes “sufficient punishment” for his effort smear all Americans who support President Donald Trump. Pretty much no one outside of the actor’s family, circle of friends (which includes the Obamas and Kamala Harris) and cast of his failing TV show agreed.

Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel has been in the national public eye since he served as one of the many Clinton bag men during the mid-1990s. In all that time I’ve never found myself agreeing with him about anything. Until yesterday, that is, when he, seemingly as outraged as everyone else in America, called the prosecutor’s action “a whitewash from top to bottom.” Trust me, Rahm Emanuel knows a whitewash when he sees one.

Needless to say, Foxx’s corrupt deal with Smollett dominated the news cycle all day on Tuesday.  Here’s what didn’t dominate those news reports: Foxx’s super PAC was the beneficiary of a $408,000 contribution from… wait for it…GEORGE SOROS. Well, knock me over with a feather.

When you google “Soros $408,000 to Kimberly Foxx” you find that the Breitbart story linked above is the one and only story on this key item of information. That’s how horrible our fake news media truly is.

For those who are not aware, Soros announced a few years back that he was planning to spend $100 million investing in the campaigns of radical leftist local prosecutors like Foxx in his neverending efforts to destroy America from within. It’s a brilliant strategy when you think about it: After all, what better way to destroy our nation than by killing the public’s faith in its system of criminal justice? That’s what the Soros-created “Black Lives Matter” was all about, what the “hands up, don’t shoot” fantasy was all about, what Eric Holder and Loretta Lynch as Attorneys General was all about.

Many are speculating that Foxx may have been bribed to take her unsupportable action related to the Smollett case. I would submit that for a bribe to have taken place here, no direct exchange of funds need to have occurred. The influence could have been exerted with a simple promise from Soros or other major donor to pour even more money into that super PAC or the prosecutor’s favorite “charity” in the future. Not that Soros would ever do such a thing, of course. Winky-winky.

Another great day for Trump. – Many talking heads are calling the Smollett fiasco a “loss” for President Trump. That’s nuts. This is in fact a yuuuuuuuuuge win for the President, for the simple fact that everyone involved in making the corrupt deal is in fact a Democrat.

Combine that reality with the fact that Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s economy-killing “Green New Deal” went down in flames in the U.S. Senate by a vote of 57-0 with 43 Democrat cowards abstaining, and you see that MAGA Monday was followed by Terrific Tuesday. What a great week we have going here. Let’s keep it up.

How hypocritical are the Democrats when it comes to the Green New Deal? Even the bill’s senate co-sponsor, Ed Markey, refused to cast his vote in favor of the travesty.

This is also a yuuuuuuuuge win for the President, since it clearly demonstrates how un-serious the Democrats truly are when it comes to their “Climate Change” scam. After all, pretty much all of the senators who refused to go on record voting for the sham yesterday gave it their full-throated endorsement when it was introduced with great fanfare several weeks ago.

The party/fake news media joint talking points told us that this Green New Deal was literally going to save the planet, that the plant would literally die if we did not “do something” to save it, and that the way to “save” the planet was to abolish air travel, kill all the farting cattle, stop driving and build a bunch of rail lines, and destroy the free market system and become a socialist nation. Presumably, Hawaii would be on its own out there in the middle of the Pacific Ocean, but that’s ok because we’d all be genuflecting to some socialist strong man from now on and that would allow us to rewrite history and pretend Hawaii was never part of the country anyway.

Oh, and by the way, we only have 12 years to do all of this, or we’ll all diiiiiiiiieeeeeeeeeeeee!!!!!!!!!!!!!

But Tuesday, the same people who parroted all of these fake talking points said in effect, hey, just kidding.

Some of us already knew that, thanks.

And then this happened…:

He didn’t use the “T” word accidentally, folks. He does and says these things with specific intent. And we all “know the answer”, don’t we?

Yes, in our heart of hearts, we do.

That is all.

Technology Is A Huge Driver Of The U.S. Oil And Gas Boom

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

In the world of oil and natural gas, engineers, geologists, and drilling and production departments tend to get the lion’s share of the credit when good things happen, and most of the blame when they don’t. That’s fair, given the crucial roles these groups of employees play within the thousands of companies that make up the U.S. oil and gas industry.

But in recent years, as overall domestic production has risen at a pace no one could have foreseen even five years ago, the credit has begun to shift. These human resources remain indispensable to the success of any company, but the deployment of a raft of advancing technologies has played an ever-advancing role over time in enabling companies to maximize recoveries and profits.

Advanced-intelligence (AI), machine-learning applications constitute one area of technology that is obtaining widespread use throughout the industry. Unplanned equipment outages and the resulting loss of production cost companies billions of dollars every year. Any technology that can help avoid such outages can have a major, positive impact on a company’s bottom line.

Last December, I wrote about one machine-learning tool – PRT, a recent acquisition of DrillingInfo – that enables companies to significantly reduce their electricity costs by accurately predicting weather and wind patterns up to two weeks in advance. Given that electricity is the single largest element of lease operating expenses industry-wide, that’s a big deal.

March 25 Was the BEST MONDAY EVER for Trump and his Supporters

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

Why did Monday ever have to end?  – Monday must have felt like a birthday, Christmas and Festivus all rolled up into one for President Donald Trump and the White House staff, as the good news started early in the morning and continued to pour in all day long.

Throughout the day, of course, they all got to watch as a parade of news-faking cretins flittered across their TV screens, vainly trying to concoct a rationalization for why they have been lying to their viewers and fans for more than two years as they promoted the Democrats’ “Russia Collusion” fantasy play. From Morning Joe and Mika and Donny Deutsch, to the despicable hack Carl Bernstein, to the contemptible Andrew Napolitano, to the seditious – no, make that treasonous – John Brennan, to the terminally unfunny and odious Stephen Colbert, with dozens of other circus clowns and cranks sprinkled liberally in between, the cascade of disgraced nitwits, dupes and just plain old liars was glorious.

As if that weren’t cause enough for joy in Trump Land, shortly after noon came the news that the Creepy Porn Lawyer had been indicted and arrested on charges of extortion and mail fraud. Yes, friends, the guy who everyone at MSNBC and CNN spent half of 2018 touting as a legitimate contender for the Democrats’ presidential nomination in 2020 due solely to the fact that he represented a porn star has been caught red-handed, as the Justice Department released damning telephone transcripts that show him explicitly blackmailing Nike for $25 million. Thus, a major tormentor of the President appears likely to soon be headed for the pokey.

But it got even better. It turns out that the Creepy Porn Lawyer’s alleged partner in this extortion plot is none other than attorney and – until yesterday – paid CNN “legal analyst” Mark Geragos. Yes, that Mark Geragos, the selfsame Mark Geragos whose most prominent current client happens to be …wait for it…oh, you have to wait for this one…JUSSIE SMOLLETT!!!!!

Yes, friends and neighbors, that would be the very same actor Jussie Smollett who is currently facing prison time of his own for creating an outrageous hoax in an effort to smear the President and everyone who supports him. That Jussie Smollett.

I swear I do not make this stuff up. The greatest, most imaginative fiction writer in world history could not in a million years make this stuff up.

But things just kept getting better and better all day long, as a seemingly endless stream of positive news stories for the President and his 2020 re-election ambitions came across the wire.  Here are some examples:

  • In Texas, all House Democrats boycotted a committee hearing on a bill that would …wait for it…OUTLAW INFATICIDE. Yeah, that’s not gonna play well with Texas voters next year.
  • Two-term New Mexico Senator Tom Udall announced he would not stand for re-election in 2020, opening up the seat for a strong GOP challenge.
  • Trump appeals court nominee Bridget Bade received a favorable cloture vote in the senate, paving the way for her to become the President’s 37th addition to the federal appellate courts, an all-time record for a first term president.
  • Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell announced the scheduling of a Senate vote on Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s hair-brained, economy-destroying “Green New Deal”, which Democrats had been desperate to avoid since it will force them to go on-record.
  • Education Secretary Betsy DeVoss announced that DOE has opened investigations into eight universities tied to the still-unfolding college admissions and bribery scandal.
  • While the Democrat Party remains mired in a slipperly-slope towards rank anti-Semitism, President Trump held a White House ceremony with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in which he formally recognized the Golan Heights as part of Israel.
  • To cap the day off, the Pentagon announced that it has formally authorized the transfer $1 billion to kick-start the building of the southern border wall.

It was, for this President and his supporters, the Best Monday Ever.

Let’s hope today is the Best Tuesday Ever. Might as well start a new trend.

Lindsey Graham Drops a Bomb at William Barr’s Doorstep

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

Say what you will about South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham – and lots of things are said about him for sure – but he is one powerful hombre in Washington, D.C. today. As the new Chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, when Graham talks, people listen, and you can bet Attorney General William Barr was listening when the Senator held a press conference this morning in which he called for the appointment of a new special counsel.

From the Boston Globe:

Senate Judiciary Committee chairman Lindsey Graham on Monday accused the FBI of “unprofessional conduct” in its initial investigation of potential links between Russian election interference and President Trump’s campaign and called for a new probe of its origins.

Now that Robert Mueller’s investigation is over, Graham said he plans to “get answers” about how the Russia probe was started and whether it was used as an excuse to spy on Trump’s presidential campaign. He urged Attorney General William Barr to appoint a special counsel to examine the issue.

Sen. Graham also said his Committee will conduct its own investigation into the origins of the counterintelligence investigation targeting the Trump Campaign in late 2015, and into the rampant misconduct within the DOJ, FBI and various U.S. intelligence agencies.

For Attorney General Barr, Graham’s call for a special counsel investigation presents an inflection point in which he will either demonstrate he is a real AG who is truly intent on doing the job of bringing the real wrong-doers in the nations biggest political scandal to justice, or just another placeholder who, like Jeff Sessions, sees his main job as protecting the interests of the D.C. deep state establishment.

Sessions deflected calls by then-Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley for a special counsel investigation in late 2017 by implying that Utah U.S. Attorney John Huber was on the case and using his team to look into all the Obama-era deep state shenanigans. But here we sit, 15 months later, and Huber’s office has yet to produce a single perp walk or indictment.

If Huber is indeed doing anything related to any of this, now would be the time for Barr to make it public, so that Americans outraged by the anti-American actions within the DOJ/FBI that went on throughout 2016 and 2017 can see that an effort is being made to enforce real justice. If Huber is, as many suspect, just a beard Sessions used to mask his own lack of interest in holding anyone truly accountable, Graham’s call for a special counsel offers Barr the chance to differentiate himself from his do-nothing predecessor.

The ball’s in your court, General Barr.  Show us what you got.

That is all.

The Democrat/Media Propaganda Complex Moves the Goal Posts in the Wake of Mueller’s Failed Coup

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

The talkin’ points, they are a-changin’… – Ok, so here’s the drill: Now that Robert Mueller has failed to carry out the coup d’etat that the Democrats and the entirety of our fake news media have hoped and dreamed of for two solid years now, the goal posts have shifted.

Now, Robert Mueller is a bad guy, a guy who both Bug-eyed Adam Schiff and Jabba The Nadler have promised to subpoena to appear before their own committees, which will now lead the Witch Hunt into the future at the behest of San Fran Nan and the editorial boards at the New York Times and Washington Post. Furthermore, the Attorney General of the United States – William Barr – and his Deputy Attorney General, Rod Rosenstein, are now the two newest subjects to be portrayed as Russian agents by our fake news media. A regular Boris Badenov and Natasha Fatale (all you Millennials will have to Google that reference), these two.

That nasty odor you found wafting from your television screens anytime you were tuned into MSNBC or CNN this weekend was a combination of sulphur and desperation. These people are literally doing the devil’s work against our nation’s survival, and their rising panic level came across the tube in spades as the weekend progressed, peaking on Sunday afternoon with the realization that Bob Mueller, the man on whom they had counted to be their collective savior, turned out to be not quite up to the job.

So the talking points had to shift, the goal posts must now move, and they all, acting almost as a single evil organism (I smell a remake of “The Blob” coming soon), latched onto the insignificant fact that Mueller did not outright “clear” President Donald Trump of “obstruction of justice” as their next thin lifeline. Since Mueller did not “clear” Trump, but the Attorney General and Deputy Attorney General (a Trump hater who we now know without any doubt at all literally attempted to frame the President) did, why, they must be acting on behalf of PUTIN!!!!!!

See the logic? No? Ok, neither do I.

Look, these are Democrats and Democrat media activists we’re talking about here – logic has no place in anything they do. If these people were vampires (and how can we really be sure that Brian Stelter and Katie Tur aren’t?), logic would be their garlic and truth their sunlight.

But, just for the sake of argument, the glaring problems with their new line of talking points are obvious:

  • Robert Mueller was acting as a prosecutor. Prosecutors do not “clear” people – they either find evidence of wrongdoing that would support a prosecution, or they do not. Mueller did not.
  • The entire case for “obstruction” against President Trump originates with a presumption that he fired bad cop James Comey – an action even Rosenstein supported, and which every Democrat in Washington had called for – in order to prevent Comey from investigating Trump’s “collusion” with Putin.
  • But Mueller found zero evidence that any such “collusion” took place – said so right there in his report.
  • So, how in the hell would anyone “obstruct justice” by trying to cover up a crime that, by the prosecutor’s own admission, DID NOT HAPPEN?

Thus, the lack of any evidence of obstruction is not a mere opinion expressed by Barr and Rosenstein, it is a metaphysical fact.  Period. Hard stop.

Let’s just close with film of the celebration in the White House last night…

 

 

That is all. For now.
