The Insane Terrorist Atrocity Response Cycle Begins Again #lovewins

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

  • The cycle is now all too familiar:  A radicalized Islamist commits an atrocity in which he murders dozens of innocent victims in a public space; first responders rush to the scene and treat the event as a law enforcement matter; even though everyone on the face of the earth recognizes the nature of the event (the fingerprints are by now ubiquitously recognizable), officials keep the name of the evil loser secret on the pretense of attempting to determine a “motive” for his actions;  snowflakes and social justice warriors all over Twitter and Facebook agree on a common avitar and hashtag so that they can pretend they are doing something effective to help, and then start shouting down and demonizing anyone who correctly identifies the nature of the atrocity; fake journalists and talking heads all over the global fake news media pretend in unison that this is something other than what we all know it is for hours on end;  but then someone leaks the name and it becomes obvious that what we all already knew is correct, that this is yet another atrocity committed on the dying Western world in the name of Islam.
  • Now that the truth is out, the demonization of anyone who has clear eyes about the nature of the enemy intensifies, not only on social media, but in the fake news media as well;  public officials begin to recite the standard talking points we’ve heard so tragically many times before:  that this poor wretched soul – who is obviously an adherent of Islam – is not Islamic at all, and that his actions – which clearly, unarguably were carried out in the name of Islam – had nothing to do with Islam at all, that in our modern world with our open borders, why, we all just have to get used to living with acts of inexplicably deranged – even though the reasons for his derangement are clear for all to see – people like this, that he is a “lone wolf” – even though ISIS is claiming credit for his radicalization and his atrocity, and we have just found out that the crazy SOB had been under surveillance of national and local authorities for months, if not years because of his known associations with ISIS and other radical Islamist groups, and nothing was done to stop him.
  • Next, as the demonization of those with clear eyes continues in the social media, comes a few days of discussion in the fake news media about what we must do to combat this “problem”.  While clear-eyed individuals like Sebastian Gorka, , General Mattis and General Kelly and others talk about the need to eradicate radical Islamists from our midst, CNN and MSNBC seek out policy luminaries like Katie Perry who talk about how we can solve the whole thing with love and open borders, #lovewins.
  • Then, after five or six days, the snowflakes and social justice warriors have their short attention spans kick in and move onto demonizing someone else over some other thing, #weknowbetterthananyoneelse, and the fake news media follows suit.  Public officials go back to doing the same ineffective things they were doing before the atrocity took place, and liberals in government return to making certain that borders remain open and no new policies that might effectively combat radical Islam are enacted.
  • And the rest of us go back to our daily lives and pray that none of our loved ones become victims when the next radicalized Islamist commits the next atrocity in the name of Islam.  Because we know the next time will inevitably come, since the snowflakes and social justice warriors and fake journalists and liberal politicians will work so hard to ensure nothing effective is ever done to prevent it.

Just another day in the utterly insane, #lovewins, open borders Western world.

That is all.

CBS News Is Infested With Ghouls

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

  • And That’s The Way It Is…:  Shortly after last night’s bombing of the Ariana Grande venue in Manchester, England, CBS reporter David Leavitt, who is such a “professional” fake journalist that he has often bragged about how he is a proud part of the “resistance” against President Donald Trump, sent out the following Tweet:  “Multiple Confirmed Fatalities at Manchester Arena.  The last time I listened to Ariana Grande I almost died too.”  If you watch CBS to get your news, you are getting your news from a bunch of ghouls.
  • Oh, Noes!  Who cut off Maxine’s Mike????:  California’s African American Caucus is looking for answers right now about why the power to the mike was cut off right in the middle of an anti-Trump diatribe being delivered to their group by the supreme nitwit of today’s U.S. congress (which is saying an awful lot), Maxine Waters.  But no worries – Maxine could never be shut up just because the mike went out, as she told the crowd that “they try to shut me up all the time.”  No word on who “they” is, and why “they” are so damned ineffective at their job.
  • Of course, once you’ve sold your soul to the Clintons, “crazy” becomes a relative term.:  Well known spirit cooker and former campaign manager for The Most Corrupt Woman in America, John Podesta, gave an interview to a fake journalist at Politico in which he called President Donald Trump “absolutely crazy.”  He then went home to sacrifice his weekly goat.
  • Wait.  Someone needed Elton John to tell them this?:  In an interview with Variety, pop legend Sir Elton John told a fake journalist that the MTV era “produced many untalented musicians.”  In other news, water is wet.
  • Now that a special counsel is investigating, it’s the only reasonable action to take.:  Fake journalist heads all over the fake news media exploded on Monday when Mike Flynn’s lawyer notified the Senate Intelligence Committee that Gen. Flynn will not testify before that committee, exercising his fifth amendment rights.   It’s fair to remember that, when IRS scumbag Lois Lerner exercised her fifth amendment rights in live testimony, the very same fake journalists who condemn Gen. Flynn basically ignored the Lerner story.  Radio silence.  If fake journalists working for all these fake news outlets want us to stop referring to them as fake, the rank double standard by which they conduct themselves must end.  No one should hold their breath waiting for that to happen.
  • Speaking of Mike Flynn…:  Everyone does realize that Gen. Flynn is a registered Democrat, right?  Just thought that was worth repeating at this moment in time.
  • Meanwhile, in the realm of winning…:  President Donald Trump flew in Air Force One from Riyadh, Saudi Arabia to Tel Aviv, Israel, marking the first time any plane has flown that route.  A truly historic moment in global history, which about 98% of the fake news media in America studiously ignored.   Pathetic.

Just another day in ghoulish fake news America.

That is all.

Democrats’ New Plan: Flipping Their Birds Back To Power

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

  • The greatest show on earth has a new home.:  After 146 years of providing continuous entertainment to America, Ringling Brothers Circus held its final show over the weekend.  No worries – the Campaign circus in Washington, DC never ends, so the masses will continue to be entertained whether we like it or not.
  • Cussing their way back into power, two middle fingers at a time.:  At the increasingly profane Democrat Party’s annual convention in California, the 84 year-old outgoing state party chairman, some guy named John Burton, closed out the proceedings by sticking both middle fingers in the air and leading gleeful party members in the chant of “F*** Donald Trump!  F*** Donald Trump!”  The fake national news media largely ignored the incident.  Try to imagine the fake media outrage that would ensue if a state GOP party chair led a GOP convention in a chant of “F*** Barack Obama!”, or “F*** Hillary Clinton!”  Anderson Cooper would be so outraged he might “take a dump on his desk.”
  • Perhaps there is hope for the future after all.:  Several dozen Notre Dame graduates walked out of a commencement address as it was being delivered by Indiana native son Mike Pence, the Vice President of the United States.  To their undying credit, many of the students who remained jeered at the emotionally-stunted children as they left the arena.
  • Hey, Mom!  I’m home!  Probably for good!:  Meanwhile, MarketWatch reports that the percentage of post-college age Millenials living with their parents has reached an all-time high.  All over America today, thousands more are leaving their college towns of choice, loaded down with tens of thousands of dollars of debt they incurred in order to get their degrees in useless majors, to add to that total.  Obviously, dozens of such graduates left South Bend, Indiana yesterday.
  • Meanwhile, in the realm of winning…:  The tone of U.S. foreign policy has certainly changed.  President Donald Trump spent the entire weekend in the Middle East, and didn’t utter a single apology to anyone, didn’t bow to any foreign leader, and neither his wife nor his daughter donned a head scarf.  And rather than employing pop psychology to dummy up reasons to blame Western democracies for being the cause of atrocities committed by Islamic terrorists, President Trump instead implored Arab leaders to “drive them out” of their countries and wipe them off the face of the earth.
  • They also think spaghetti with marinara sauce is exactly the same thing as mac ‘n cheese.:  When President Trump had to bow slightly when a shorter Saudi ruler awarded him a medal of honor, CNN and other fake news media outlets rushed to claim it was exactly, precisely the same thing as Barack Obama’s habit of bowing every time he greeted any Arab leader.  Which is exactly what any thinking person should expect from the fake news media.
  • His sense of self-awareness could use a little work.:  Speaking of Barack Obama, he gave a speech in Milan, Italy on this beliefs about how the all-knowing, all-powerful “Climate Change” is in fact responsible for literally everything bad that ever happens, blaming the entire problem on carbon dioxide (i.e., plant food) created by mankind.  To get to Milan, the former POTUS flew in a private jet, and then drove to the venue from the airport in a 13-car, gasoline-fueled motorcade, thus leaving him with a carbon footprint roughly equal to that created by the Island of Madagascar on a daily basis.

Just another day in Climate Change is a religion America.

Comey’s False Presidential Handshake Claim

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

So let’s address this bullsh*t claim by a buddy of James Comey (no doubt at Comey’s urging, reciting Comey’s script) that he was “disgusted” by having to shake President Donald Trump’s hand at a White House reception for senior Administration officials 2 days following the inauguration.

Comey’s claim is that he intentionally wore a blue blazer so that he might be able to “blend in” with the curtains in the room so as not to attract the President’s attention.  He further claims that he was “disgusted” when the President “singled him out” among the other senior officials and asked him to come shake his hand.  Comey’s buddy claims the handshake was “purely one-sided” and that Comey felt like the President was “trying to compromise him” by shaking his freaking hand.

Ok, let’s analyze this, first by going to this link and looking at the film of the incident.

What is the first thing you notice by looking at that film?  If you’re like most people, you notice that James Comey is about a foot taller than anyone else in that entire room.  Let’s be honest here:  If the Director of the FBI really believed that, by wearing a blazer that is similar in color to the curtains in that room, he was going to avoid attracting attention from the President or anyone else, he is obviously too damned dim-witted to be the FBI Director, and needed firing for that reason alone.

Now take a look at the photo accompanying this piece:  You see the administration officials are lined up along the back wall of the room, and that Mr. Comey had stationed himself directly in the MIDDLE of that line up.  By placing himself there, he ensured that he would occupy the very CENTER of the President’s point of view.

So, he’s a foot taller than everyone else in the room, and he intentionally stations himself in the center of a line of shorter people.  Does this really look like someone hoping to avoid attention, or does it look like the normal behavior constantly exhibited throughout his career by the tirelessly attention-seeking James Comey?

Now, back to the video:  Look at the handshake.  Comey, contrary to what his buddy claims, reaches his hand out to accept the President’s hand, leans in to listen to whatever the President wanted to whisper in his hear, and smiles throughout.  Is this the behavior of a “disgusted” underling, or of a tireless attention-seeker who is more than happy to have been singled out in that room of peers?

This is just one more example of the reality of James Comey:  He is a weasel, a skunk, an attention-seeking jerk, and someone who obviously needed firing.

That is all.

Today’s Campaign Update (Because The Campaign Never Ends) – 5.20.2017

  • Democrats have now set themselves up with a big problem, thanks to their incessant, irrational talk about “Impeachment” over the last few months:  They now have a radical leftwing base that expects them to deliver the goods, and soon.  The trouble is, it’s a goal that is not deliverable any time in the foreseeable future.  In doing this, the Democrats have set themselves up with the very same conundrum that Republicans set themselves up with on Obamacare.
  • Why is it not deliverable?  First because, simply, the impeachment of a president requires there to be a crime.  So far, despite all the sound and fury and fake news reports based solely on unnamed “sources”, no crime has been identified.  Indeed, no crime on the part of President Trump has even been alleged, as confirmed by a series of former Obama officials, the now-fired Director of the FBI and every Democrat Senator who has been willing to opine on the question.  Hell, even the insufferable nitwit Maxine Waters was forced to admit this reality early this week.  No crime, no impeachment.  It really is that simple.
  • Second is the next reality that the impeachment process is managed in the U.S. House of Representatives, where the Republicans currently control a very large majority of seats.  The approval of articles of impeachment requires a majority vote in the house, meaning that, even if every Democrat were to vote in favor, dozens of Republicans would have to join them in that effort.  And getting to that point assumes that Republican Speaker of the House Paul Ryan would even allow such a process to begin on his watch.  Ryan has never been a fan of President Trump, obviously, but he is a loyal Republican, and it’s hard to imagine him allowing such a process to even begin on his watch, barring revelations that some real crimes have been committed by the President.
  • Third is the reality that Impeachment simply means that the house has voted to accuse the President of crimes that merit his removal from office.  The removal process is managed in the U.S. Senate, where again, Republicans have control, and where Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has even more control over the process than Speaker Ryan does in the house.  Making things even more difficult, the actual removal of a president from office requires a 2/3rds vote of the senate, not a simple majority, so it is not something Democrats would be able to accomplish by simply having disloyal Rinos like John McCain and Lindsey Graham join them in the effort.
  • So basically, the Democrats, as the Republicans did seven years ago related to Obamacare, have now created an expectation among their base voters that they have no current way of satisfying, and let’s face it, the Democrat base is basically insane at this point in its overwhelming rage, and not known for its patience.  This is a segment of our society that behaves in such an irrational manner because it believes it is entitled to have its way.
  • The Democrats are now going to have to base their campaigns in the 2018 mid-term elections on a promise to impeach President Trump if they are given majorities in not one, but both houses of congress.  This is a promise that, absent the revelation of some real crime committed by President Trump, is likely to turn as many people off as it turns on.  It’s one thing to campaign against a piece of legislation, as the GOP did for the last 7 years; it’s quite another thing to base a campaign on the promise of never-ending chaos that is incredibly damaging to American democracy.  Democrat base voters don’t care about such things, but independent voters by and large do.
  • And here’s another pesky reality of life facing congressional Democrats:  they aren’t likely to win a majority in either house of congress in 2018, much less both houses.  House districts have been so expertly gerrymandered by both parties over the last 40 years that only a few dozen races will even be competitive, and Republicans will win their share of those competitive races.  Democrats might close the gap in the House, but odds are very remote that they will turn it completely.
  • The Senate is even tougher for Democrats, as more than half of their senate membership is up for re-election in 2018, and they will have to defend 25 of 34 seats that are in play.  Eight of those seats currently occupied by Democrats are in states that were easily won in 2016 by Donald Trump.  The most likely scenario for 2018 is that the Republicans will actually increase their majority in the Senate, not lose ground.
  • Where does that leave the Democrats in 2019?  It leaves them with an even angrier base of voters than they already have, though I know it’s hard to imagine that being the case.  Further, it leaves them with literally no way to placate that perpetually enraged base going into the 2020 presidential elections.  That in turn means that the Democrat Party will continue to migrate even further to the far left than it already is in its never-ending efforts to placate the rage.  That leftwards lurch will almost certainly result in a presidential nominee who is unabashedly socialist/fascist, like Bernie Sanders, who will be pushing 80 by 2020, or the Fake Indian Senator from Massachusetts, who will be easily marginalized as the nut job she truly is.
  • We have seen many Democrats now begin to back off from using the “I” word over the last couple of weeks, in part because of the appointment of a special counsel to investigate their Trump/Russia collusion fantasy, and in part because the smarter among them – like Sen. Feinstein – have worked through the same logical progression detailed above.  But this won’t last for long, because their base of perpetual rage-filled entitlement babies won’t allow it.
  • This is the house that the Democrats have built for themselves by allowing their worst nitwits to lead the party’s public messaging assault on President Trump.  Who knows?  Perhaps they’ll be able to manage it all to a successful conclusion.  But the odds are very much against it, because the process of impeaching and removing a president was devised by much, much smarter people than they are.

Just another day in premature impeachment frenzy America.

That is all.

Today’s Campaign Update (Because The Campaign Never Ends) – 5.19.2017

  • Today’s Required Reading:  George Soros, that evil old leftist radical who funds Black Lives Matter and other U.S. leftist violent protest groups, essentially owns the Democratic Party, and who has played such a large role in the flooding of Europe with Muslim immigrants, is now buying up district attorneys around the country.  Great report on his latest efforts to destroy the free world here.
  • Can we get the WaPo and NYTimes to quit making stuff up about Comey now?:  Guy Benson, one of the handful of real journalists still working in Washington DC today, posted video on Twitter yesterday from James Comey’s May 3 sworn testimony to congress.  In response to a question, Mr. Comey clearly and unequivocally states that no one in the Trump or any other administration, not the President or anyone else, has ever asked him to stop any investigation, ever.  Period.  In response, the WaPo and NYTimes issued several more made-up stories about Comey based on nothing but unidentified, anonymous “sources”.  Because that’s all they know to do anymore.
  • Cats everywhere are cringing in fear…:  The Daily Mail reports that officials in China have banned the selling and consuming of dog meat at the nation’s annual Yulin festival, at which dog meat has traditionally been the dish of choice.  The government is not planning to ban the killing and serving of any other types of animals that people in the Western world tend to name and treat like family members these days.  I swear I don’t make this stuff up.
  • If this surprises you, you just don’t understand the real ability of House Republicans to screw up any one car parade.:  It was revealed yesterday that House Speaker Paul Ryan hasn’t actually sent the much-vaunted Obamacare repeal and replace bill to the Senate yet.  Why?  Because he’s afraid he may have to put the matter up for another vote, depending on how the score from the Congressional Budget Office turns out.  Next time someone tells you Donald Trump doesn’t know what he’s doing, refer that person to Paul Ryan.
  • Meanwhile, in an obvious effort to change the subject and calm the financial markets, Ryan and House Ways and Means Chairman Kevin Brady started talking about their tax reform effort again, holding a meeting with business leaders from around the country.  Can’t wait to see how many times they’re planning to hold votes on that one.
  • They’re just “leaving”.  Get it?:  The fake journalists at The Atlantic filed a report titled “American Trees Are Moving West And No One Knows Why”.  Naturally, the fake reporter quotes fake climate scientists who state with all certainty that climate change – which is responsible for everything from acid indigestion to thinning hair on desert jumping rats – accounts for “no more than 20%” of this mysterious tree migration.  Seriously, you have to read this story to believe it.
  • Tired of winning yet?:  ICE reports that arrests of illegal immigrants at the southern border are up by 40% this year over the same period in 2016.  As reported earlier, the agency also estimates that total illegal border crossings are down by more than 75% in the same year-over-year measure.  If we could count on the next Democrat elected to the presidency to continue to simply enforce U.S. immigration law, no fence would be necessary.  Unfortunately, we all know we can’t count on any such thing.

Just another day in winning despite the fake news media America.

That is all.

No, U.S. Shale Drillers Have Not Won A War With OPEC

  • More than 200 U.S. energy companies filing for bankruptcy in less than 2 years;
  • A commodity price about half of what it was 3 years ago;
  • Rig count half of the 2014 level;
  • An industry just now beginning recover from large layoffs during 2015 and 2016.

If the current state of the U.S. upstream oil and gas industry is what an industry looks like when it has “won” a war, then let’s not have any more wars, OK?

But that’s exactly what some in the energy-related news media would have you believe:  that the U.S. shale industry has succeeded in staring down the OPEC cartel’s effort to put it out of business and emerged victorious.  Several readers contacted me and ask me if that was not in fact the bottom line of the piece I posted last Friday, titled “OPEC Still Fundamentally Misunderstands U.S. Oil Industry.”

Well, no, that was not the point, but since some took it that way, I guess a fuller explanation is in order.

The point of that previous piece – one of the main points, anyway – was that the U.S. shale industry had survived fairly intact from an effort to kill it off. Still standing three years after the assault began, the industry is now leaner , more efficient, able to extract much higher volumes of oil from the same formations than it had been, and better equipped to withstand any future shocks, whether naturally occurring or artificially derived.

Today’s Campaign Update (Because The Campaign Never Ends) – 5.18.2017

  • Democrats are celebrating this morning – their wet dream has arrived:  a special counsel appointed by the Justice Department, a career-long creature of the DC swamp, with no limits on what he can investigate, with an unlimited time frame during which to conduct his investigation, and with a pretty much unlimited budget for his investigation.  This is what they’ve wanted since Election Day, and thanks to the decision by Attorney General Jeff Sessions to stupidly recuse himself from anything related to the Russia investigation, Deputy AG Rod Rosenstein gave it to them yesterday in the form of former FBI Director Robert Mueller.
  • Every time one of these atrocities of federal law has been established, the fake news media immediately trots out testimonials about the man’s (they’re always old, white men – you would think all the social justice warriors would object to that part of the scam at some point) impeccable credentials and character.  He will then make a statement – which will surely come  today – about how he is going to be laser-focused on the supposed topic of his investigation, and he will make damn sure the investigation is conducted efficiently and won’t turn into some sort of witch hunt that ends in some sort of kangaroo court that throws people like Scooter Libby in prison for a made-up crime just so the special counsel can claim a scalp.
  • After making that pledge – which again, Mr. Mueller will certainly make later today or no later than tomorrow – the special counsels of the past have then embarked on a long, unlimited witch hunt that has always ended up in a kangaroo court climax accusing and prosecuting individuals for “crimes”, real or imagined, that were usually not remotely the subject of the investigation to begin with.
  • Regardless of his own personal character, intentions and qualifications, Mr. Mueller’s investigation will inevitably be taken in this traditional direction and end in this traditional outcome, because he is little more than a figurehead, the “upright man”, the public face of a process that will soon be staffed and run by a group of young, ambitious lawyers who will make it their goal to collect as many scalps as they can in order to make names for themselves, so that they too can become fabulously wealthy, career-long creatures of the DC swamp.
  • And if you think the Trump Administration leaks like that 35 year-old sieve you got as a wedding gift in 1981, just wait until you see the magnitude of leaks that will soon begin flowing from Mr. Mueller’s staff.  Again, it’s the Democrats’ wet dream, not to mention the WaPo and the fake NYTimes.
  • But hey, you’re sitting there thinking, the positive side of this is that all those congressional investigations will now be shut down and congress might actually get some real business done, right?  Wrong.  Leaders of both the House and Senate Judiciary Committees and the House Oversight Committee have already announced that the appointment of Mr. Mueller will not in any way affect their own efforts to provide the Democrats in congress with a daily array of talking points and classified material to leak to the press.  Republicans are too stupid to do anything else.  Silly you for thinking otherwise.
  • Mr. Mueller is no doubt a fine man – the obligatory testimonials to that effect are already rolling in, and there is no reason to doubt them.  As well, he has been a fine public servant, as his leadership of the FBI during the George W. Bush administration by and large attests.  But we heard the very same sorts of testimonials and saw similar records of public service in the past about Ken Starr, Lawrence Walsh, Patrick Fitzgerald and every other old white guy who has served as a special counsel over the last half century.
  • But every one of the special counsel investigations of the past have followed the exact same pattern of promised quick efficiency and laser-like focus on a narrow investigation, to inexorable and dramatic expansion, to outright years-long witch hunt, to a kangaroo court conclusion.  Why?  Because that’s how this process was designed to work by the creatures of the DC establishment who wrote the governing statute.  It would be better named the DC Swamp Preservation Act.
  • So get ready for a witch hunt followed several years from now by a kangaroo court that sends people to prison for “crimes” completely unrelated to the ostensible subject of Mr. Mueller’s investigation.  The hope of the Democrats is that Mr. Mueller finds away to still be “investigating” on Election Day 2020, and the odds are very much in favor of that being the case.

Just another day in here-we-go-again, special counsel America.

That is all.
