As the Mid-Terms Approach, Robert Mueller Continues to Close up Shop

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

With debates like this, who needs debates?  – The only truly notable thing about last night’s debate between Ted Cruz and Irish Bob O’Rourke was the persistent gleam of Richard Nixon-like sweat that clung to the Irishman’s face throughout the festivities.  O’Rourke led off with a line reminding the audience about the “Lyin’ Ted” nickname that Donald Trump had tagged Cruz with during 2016, but Cruz neutralized that by noting that that tactic was used on the advice of O’Rourke’s pollsters, which is no doubt true.  Naturally, that did not prevent the newsfakers at CNN and other fake media outlets from using O’Rourke’s attack line in their headlines.

The moderators were a bad joke, failing to press the sweaty Democrat on his denial in the previous debate between the two that he fled the scene of the car wreck he caused while driving drunk in his younger days. Because of course they did.

By and large, the debate very predictably consisted of Cruz directly answering questions asked by the moderators in detail few politicians can match, and O’Rourke ducking and dodging with non-answers and dishonest talking points constructed for him by his pollsters and staff.  Other than that, the only notable aspect of the debate was the constant sheen of moisture that clung to the pale face of O’Rourke, a stark contrast to the artificially-darkened mug that appears in his campaign ads.

Irish Bob came into this debate well behind in the race, and needing to smack a home run last night in order to have any real hope of prevailing on Election Day.  As it was, he went 0-for-4 and looked really bad at the plate in doing so.

Game over.  Let’s move on.

Oh, hey, the non-Roseanne Roseanne show premiered last night on ABC. – Yes, friends, the depraved monkeys who run ABC brought you the premiere of “The Conners” last night, and their depravity has reached such unenviable heights that they chose to kill Roseanne with… wait for it…oh, you have to wait for this one…AN OPIOID OVERDOSE!

Seriously, who is going to watch this crap?

Best Twitter meme of an incredibly hilarious Twitter day goes to…

C’mon, you gotta admit, that’s funny.

Meanwhile, over in “Russia Collusion” fantasy world… – In the latest in a string of clear signs that Robert Mueller is systematically winding down his fake “investigation”, Bloomberg is reporting this morning that the Special Counsel is in the final stages of preparing to issue his “key findings” soon after the mid-term elections have come and gone.

Hey, guess what?  Election Day is now less than three weeks away.

The report, based as always on anonymous sources, i.e., leaks from the Special Counsel’s office, is careful to point out a fact that most folks are not aware of, but one that is very key to this particular situation:

That doesn’t necessarily mean Mueller’s findings would be made public if he doesn’t secure unsealed indictments. The regulations governing Mueller’s probe stipulate that he can present his findings only to his boss, who is currently Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein. The regulations give a special counsel’s supervisor some discretion in deciding what is relayed to Congress and what is publicly released.

Hey, remember last week when I told you that the reason why President Trump isn’t going to fire oily Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein is because he has Rosenstein right where he wants him?  Remember how I pointed out the reality that Rosenstein is desperate to prevent the declassification of the details of the FISA application that he himself signed?  Well, here you go.

The reality here is that Mueller isn’t going to try to indict President Trump because President Trump did nothing wrong.  Mueller has spent the last 16 months holding a huge bag of nothing where the President is concerned, and indicting a series of ham sandwiches and entrapping several people into process crimes instead.

Obviously, if Mueller and his evil minions aren’t able to secure any indictments alleging the non-existent crime of “collusion” or the ridiculous notion of a sitting POTUS committing “obstruction of justice” by firing an employee whom he has the express constitutional authority to fire for any reason whatsoever at any time of his choosing, President Trump is going to want the report from the Special Counsel’s office kept out of the public domain.  The reason for this is quite clear:  If the report makes it into the public domain, it would provide fodder for an almost limitless raft of fake stories in the fake news media.  If there is no actionable violation of the law, why give these enemies of the people that opportunity?

The answer is, no responsible, ethical Justice Department would give them that chance.  But President Trump is faced with an apparently asleep-at-the-wheel Attorney General and an utterly corrupt Deputy Attorney General. So, as is his life-long mode of operation, he is using leverage to encourage ethical behavior in this instance.

You probably shouldn’t expect to see the full declassification of that FISA application until Mueller has completely closed up his shop.  And maybe not even then.  Because President Trump, a fan of the Michael Corleone advice that “you keep your friends close and your enemies closer,” is keeping Rod Rosenstein very close indeed.

That is all.

Elizabeth Warren’s Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

This is what the Creepy Porn Lawyer calls a “moral victory.” – Monday was not a good day for Creepy Porn Lawyers, specifically, the nation’s most infamous Creepy Porn Lawyer, Michael Avenatti.  You know, the guy who thinks he’s going to be the Democrat Party’s presidential nominee in 2020.  Don’t laugh – he’s such an outright fraud that he just might get there, because we all know how Democrat voters love to nominate frauds for the presidency.  Think about it.

Yesterday, fresh off of making a national laughingstock of himself for putting forward a literal crazy woman who accused Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of running a punch-spiking, girl-drugging, serial gang rape operation while he was in high school back in the 1970s, the Creepy Porn Lawyer became a laughingstock once again as a federal judge dismissed Stormy Daniels’ defamation lawsuit against President Donald Trump.  Not only did the judge throw the creepy case out of his court, he also ruled that the porn star must reimburse President Trump for his legal fees in the case!  I swear I don’t make this stuff up.

For his part, Avenatti responded to the judge’s decision like that little kid on the elementary school playground who, after you beat him in another game of marbles, always kicked the dirt and said “you cheated – I’ll getcha next time!”:

HAH HAH HAH HAH HAH HAH HAH HAH HAH HAH HAH HAH HAH HAH HAH HAH HAH HAH HAH HAH HAH HAH HAH HAH HAH HAH HAH [takes deep breath] HAH HAH HAH HAH HAH HAH HAH HAH HAH HAH HAH HAH HAH HAH HAH HAH HAH HAH !!!!!!

Stop it, you’re killin’ me here, Creepy Porn Lawyer!

But Avenatti wasn’t the only leading Democrat 2020 presidential contestant who had a really, really, really, really bad day on Monday…

For Exhibit B, I give you Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren. – My goodness, I’m not sure anyone planning a run for the presidency – as Fauxcahontas clearly is despite her tepid non-denial denials – has ever suffered a more needless self-inflicted wound than Senator Warren did on Monday.

Obviously obsessed and enraged over President Trump’s frequent taunts about her life-long fraudulent contention that she is a “Native American” based on nothing but “family lore”, the neo-Marxist Senator from Massachusetts engaged in a huge bit of self-immolation as she rolled out a “DNA test” conducted by some flim-flam artist at Stanford University in an effort to prove the lore was in fact true.  The extreme leftist Democrat Party propaganda rag, the Boston Globe, was only too happy to play host to her stunt, advertising Warren’s “proof” with a big front page story in which the paper originally claimed the test, which said that Warren probably had one “Native American” relative as far as 6 to 10 generations back in her lineage, somehow proved she was as much as 1/16th Cherokee.

Oops.

A few hours later, after no doubt hundreds of readers had called and emailed that having a great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great grandmother who was “Native American” in one’s lineage would in fact make you a tiny fraction of that, the Globe then issued a correction that said that …wait for it…Sen. Warren is in fact 1/1024th “Native American!”  A few hours after that, the paper then issued yet another correction as it desperately tried to make things better for its favorite Senator, now claiming that, ok, well, the test actually means she is somewhere between 1/64th and 1/1024th “Native American,” as if that made everything all better.

It didn’t.  The damage was already done by then, and it turns out the “test” in question didn’t even use a single sample of actual “Native American” DNA as a point of comparison.

See, this guy at Stanford doesn’t actually have any real “Native American” DNA samples to use, so instead he uses samples from people in places like Colombia, Peru and other points in South America, on the theory that hey, all them Indians in the Western Hemisphere are the same, right?  Holy cow!

Thus, what this “test” actually “proves” – assuming it proves anything at all – is that somewhere way, way, waaaaayyyyyyy back in her family lineage, Senator Little Mouth Always Running had one ancestor who might, maybe, have been Colombian, Peruvian or some sort of American Indian but nobody really knows for sure.  It was on this basis, and with this knowledge aforethought that Sen. Lieawatha actually thought she was declaring victory here.

It all became a little too much for the Cherokee Nation, sick of Sen. Faucahontas’s constant, obviously fraudulent efforts to appropriate the heritage of which real Cherokees are so proud and over which so many have died.  Early in the afternoon, the Nation issued the following statement lambasting Sen. Warren and this “test”:

“A DNA test is useless to determine tribal citizenship. Current DNA tests do not even distinguish whether a person’s ancestors were indigenous to North or South America. Sovereign tribal nations set their own legal requirements for citizenship, and while DNA tests can be used to determine lineage, such as paternity to an individual, it is not evidence for tribal affiliation. Using a DNA test to lay claim to any connection to the Cherokee Nation or any tribal nation, even vaguely, is inappropriate and wrong. It makes a mockery out of DNA tests and its legitimate uses while also dishonoring legitimate tribal governments and their citizens, whose ancestors are well documented and whose heritage is prove. Senator Warren is undermining tribal interests with her continued claims of tribal heritage.”

Ouch.  Devastating.

Meanwhile, as the day went on, the fake news media became increasingly desperate in its efforts to provide cover for its favorite fake Indian, and focused on President Trump’s taunt from last year in which he said he’d give $1 million to Warren’s favorite charity if she could prove she was indeed an Indian.  One nitwit fake reporter even questioned the President about it as he toured the devastation left behind by Hurricane Michael in Florida.  Mr. Trump, smiling, responded hilariously, saying “What is it, 1/1000th?  I’ll only do it if I can test her personally.  That will not be something I enjoy doing either.”

So, just so everyone is clear here:  Yesterday, President Donald Trump (I never tire of typing those three glorious words) succeeded in inducing a leading contender for the Democrat 2020 presidential nomination to a) take a damn DNA test at her own expense, b) declare victory over having been sort of “proven” to be 1/1024th right, and c) get taken down in a brutal way by the Cherokee Nation for her troubles.

That, my friends, is #WINNING.

That is all.

The Democrat Party is a Mob, Nothing More

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

This is just how the fake news media op…ok, well, as I was saying…yes, of course but…oh, nevermind. – In a 26 minute interview on 60 Minutes last night, fake journalist Leslie Stahl interrupted the President of the United States of America, Donald Trump, 64 times.  In an interview with Barack Obama on 60 Minutes several years ago, he was interrupted 4 times.

But there is no bias at CBS News.  Just ask them, they’ll tell you.  And when you start to object, they’ll interrupt you.

Another Democrat-run city, another abject failure by law enforcement. – When the history books are written about why the United States descended into chaos, honest historians will write their opening chapters about the failure of law enforcement officials to do their jobs in Democrat-run cities around the country.  Chapter 1 would have to be about Berkeley, California, but chapter 2 would have to be centered on Portland, Oregon.

There on Saturday, a peaceful demonstration by the right-wing group called “Patriots Prayer” was set upon by a bunch of black-clad Antifa rioters, and a huge melee ensued on the downtown streets of the city.  Police stood by and watched for a few minutes as the Antifa thugs armed with bear spray and batons went after it with the Patriots Prayer people before finally jumping in to break up the city’s latest riot.

Get this: NO ARRESTS WERE MADE.  None.  Not one.  No left-wingers, no right-wingers, nobody went to jail.

This event comes just days after Antifa thugs were filmed being left unmolested by the city police as they harassed and assaulted pedestrians and car drivers in one downtown neighborhood of the city.  After that disgusting incident, Democrat Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler, who ironically doubles as the city’s “Police Commissioner,” said that “motorists should feel completely safe coming into downtown Portland.”  No word if he also thinks people should feel perfectly safe in pits of rattlesnakes, but it seems likely.

On Saturday, the Patriots Prayer group had a lawful permit to conducted its demonstration.  As has become typical of such confrontations in Democrat-run cities around the country, the Antifa group did not.  But again, the police just stood by and watched as the Antifa thugs assembled and started their assault, and then made no arrests.  None.

The Democrat party is a mob.  Nothing more.

Because the demonization of white men was becoming so last year… – Never let it be said that The Campaign Update fails to keep you abreast of the latest political correctness news.  Staying “woke” is not easy these days, since the whims of social justice warriors, campus snowflakes and the university professors who brainwash them all on a daily basis can shift on a dime, but we do our best.

Here’s the latest from the “woke” front:

Out:  White men are the problem with, like, you know, everything and stuff.

In:  White women are so all, like, the problem with all the, you know, stuff or something that, like, white men aren’t causing, you know?  Seriously?

Yes, all you white guys out there, you’re getting a bit of a break while all the SJWs and snowflakes and sharia law-supporting “Women’s Marchers” go after your WAGs (that is “wives and girlfriends” in wokespeak).  Kyle Smith, writing at the National Review, does a really good job of giving us some of the highlights of the new movement to demonize white women today:

Today, white women are being lumped together into a giant bloc subject to absurdly broad stereotyping and vitriolic condemnation. They’re being told to step back and know their place by writers in the New York Times (“white women benefit from patriarchy by trading on their whiteness to monopolize resources for mutual gain”), The New Yorker (“despite the enduring legacy of testimony by black women, white women have often played the protagonists in the history of sexual violence, and black women have been relegated to the supporting cast”) and NBC News (“white women who voted for Trump . . . clearly have no issue with the president’s openly misogynistic behavior, his demeaning of female reporters and his mocking of [Christine Blasey] Ford”).

A writer for The Root castigated Taylor Swift because “like some white women, she uses her privilege to not be involved until she’s directly affected.” Talia Lavin, the New Yorker fact-checker who resigned in June after erroneously suggesting that an ICE agent (who turned out to be a combat-wounded Marine Corps veteran) had a Nazi tattoo, continues to contribute to The New Yorker and tells her 51,000 Twitter followers, “patriarchy won’t protect you no matter how hard white women fight for it.” “White women use strategic tears to silence women of colour,” ran a headline in the Guardian. On the basis of five phone calls, plus the story of what happened to Emmett Till in 1955, Rolling Stone published an essay entitled, “Why White Women Keep Calling the Police on Black People,” blaming them for “a new 21st century version of Jim Crow.” 

It goes on and on, and is well worth your time to click over and read in full, which is a rare thing at the National Review these days.

So all you white guys out there who have been getting blamed for literally everything from global warming to the heartbreak of psoriasis to the Cowboys being such a lousy football team for the past 20 years (hey, Jerry Jones is a white guy, after all), sit back, have a beer and let your lawn grow as your wives, girlfriends and daughters have their reputations slandered by our fake news media for awhile.  But don’t get too complacent – all the SJWs and snowflakes will be coming back sooner or later to blame you for all their problems, because, well, they have to blame someone other than themselves, because the alternative would be taking responsibility for their own actions.

You know that isn’t in the cards.

[Update] The President tweeted this shortly after Today’s Campaign Update went live:

As I’ve repeatedly noted, President Trump doesn’t just tweet this stuff out for no reason.  We should all note that he sees all the GOP internal polling – and probably much of the Democrat internal polling – coming in from all over the country, so he knows how voter attitudes are shifting in the wake of the Kavanaugh smear.

It’s also important to note that it generally takes 10 days to 2 weeks for shifts due to major events like the Kavanaugh smear to fully show up in the polling data, so we will start seeing its full impact this week.  If, as the President says, something big is happening, even the fake polls from places like ABC and CNN will start showing it soon.

WATCH.

That is all.

Fresh out of new Narratives, the New York Times Does a Remake of “Impeachment”

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Ok, so, that Kavanaugh smear didn’t work, so the fake news media needs a new narrative. – Meet the new narrative, same as the old narrative.  The “Kavanaugh is a gang rapist!” narrative was a miserable failure; the “Taylor Swift endorses Phil Bredesen!” narrative crashed up on the shoals of disastrous poll results; the “Trump misreported his taxes!” narrative held public attention for about, well, no time at all; and the “It’s gonna be a BLUE WAVE!!!!!” narrative is showing clear signs of being more like a Tidy Bowl toilet flushing.  What’s the fake news media to do?

Why, make up a new narrative, that’s what.  The trouble is, the fake news media is a lot like Hollywood:  It cycles through new scripts so rapidly that it has run fresh out of ideas.  So the obvious answer?  Do a remake!

That’s right:  Just as Hollywood recently brought us completely unnecessary remakes of films like “Ben Hur” and “A Star is Born,” the newsfakers at the New York Times this morning are treating us to a completely unnecessary remake of “Is Trump on a Collision Course With Impeachment?” . Isn’t that wonderful?

*sigh*

With Robert Mueller systematically winding down his “investigation”, Democrat hopes of gaining a majority in either house of congress rapidly fading, and exactly ZERO legitimate justification for removing a president from office having been identified by Mueller or anyone else, this reboot of the “impeachment” narrative will also have a very short shelf life.  So expect the newsfakers at the New York Times and the rest of our fake news media to be bringing us yet another narrative sequel, reboot or remake soon, because that’s all they got left.

Elsewhere, Andy McCarthy, one of just two writers at The National Review still worth reading (the other being the great Victor Davis Hanson), has a piece out this weekend titled “Who Will Save the Democrats From Their Leaders?”.  In the piece, McCarthy systematically disassembles the utterly corrupt Eric Holder piece by piece in a way that is a true work of art.  It’s a fantastic read that I highly recommend to everyone.

Here is one outstanding passage to whet your appetite:

“But if there is anyone who knows about “going low,” it is Mr. Holder. He is, after all, the first attorney general in American history to be held in contempt of Congress.

And low is exactly where Holder — along with Hillary “No Civility Unless We Win” Clinton and the rest of the social-justice arriére-garde — has taken a once-great political party.

In a better time, we would not be talking about Eric Holder. He would be dismissed as a fringe radical who endorses forcible, extortionist tactics against political adversaries (and then, in familiar Holder fashion, spends the next day pretending he didn’t say what he said). In a better time, we would be asking why anyone would care what Eric Holder says, about anything.

But today, Holder is important. Today, he is a mainstream Democratic leader.”

Go read it.  Trust me, it’s worth 5 minutes of your time.

And this from the #NeverTrump fantasy world of fake conservatism…Washington Post pet fake conservative lapdog Kathleen Parker has a new piece up this morning in which she blames President Donald Trump (I never tire of typing those three glorious words) for her and other Americans drinking too much alcohol.  I swear I don’t make this stuff up.  Here’s a quote:

“Lately, at least from my perch on the porch, the evening cocktail has become less an aperitif than a medicinal slug made necessary by the alternative of ripping off my face. To bear witness to These Times In Which We Live is to go insane, join a cult or pour your favorite poison.”

Ms. Parker obviously has a severe aversion to all this #WINNING.

Oh, hey, that’s just how Joe is. – And while we’re at it, let’s not leave Joe Biden out of all the Trump-bashing fun.  Creepy Ol’ Joe had this to say about the President of the United States of America (something Joe Biden will never become) on Saturday:

“He is just trashing American values the way he talks about people, the way he makes fun of people, the way he denigrates folks.”

Ok, now, to refresh everyone’s memories, this is the exact same Joe Biden who:

  • Gleefully participated in the slandering of Robert Bork;
  • Cheerfully helped organize the smearing of Clarence Thomas;
  • Said Barack Hussein Obama was a great African American presidential candidate because he’s “clean” and “articulate”;
  • Said that “In Delaware, the largest growth of population is Indian Americans, moving from India. You cannot go to a 7-11 or a Dunkin’ Donuts unless you have a slight Indian accent. I’m not joking.” and
  • Has spent the last 30 years getting caught on film creepily fondling and otherwise violating the personal space of all manner of women and even Chris Coons’s teenage daughter.

Someone needs to remind Mr. Biden that he lives in a very, very fragile glass house, and throwing rocks from within it is a really bad idea.

That is all.

The Week in Review: Trump Spoke the Truth, the Media Went Nuts

The Campaign Update Week in Review

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

The most outstanding feature of this week was the media going nuts.  What was so interesting about it to me was that they went nuts every time President Trump told the truth

For example, at the formal swearing-in of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh, the President told the truth about the fact that he had been subjected to a shameful smearing organized by the Democrats.  An absolute, unarguable fact.  The media went nuts.

At his rally in Ohio Friday night, Trump told the truth about the unarguable fact that Robert E. Lee was a great general.  Simply a fact of history.  The media went nuts.

Upon the release of Pastor Andrew Brunson from a Turkish prison, the President tweeted this absolute true statement:

“There was NO DEAL made with Turkey for the release and return of Pastor Andrew Brunson. I don’t make deals for hostages. There was, however, great appreciation on behalf of the United States, which will lead to good, perhaps great, relations between the United States & Turkey!”

Not surprisingly, the media went nuts.

Of course, the reality here is the media and their Democrat masters just can’t deal with reality.  Trump keeps winning, they keep losing, and they go nuts because they don’t know what else to do at this point.  Combine all that losing with the fact this was the week that their precious “blue wave” fantasy began to show signs of slipping away, and it’s amazing they all haven’t been committed to an asylum by now.

But hey, it’s just a matter of time.  Let’s go to the Week in Review:

 

It was the week Cocaine Mitch McConnell out-maneuvered Cryin’ Chuckie Schumer yet again, securing a deal in which the Senate confirmed en mass no less than 15 new federal judges to the bench in exchange for calling the Senate into recess so that desperate Democrats could go home to campaign.

It was the week Hurricane Michael devastated the Florida panhandle, and Democrat Senator Bill Nelson turned the tragedy into a fundraising opportunity.

It was the week that Al Gore told us all we only have 10 more years to save the planet, a talking point he has used every year for the last 30 years, and will continue to use every year for the rest of his life.

It was the week that the Creepy Porn Lawyer and Irish Bob O’Rourke formed a fundraising partnership, because apparently Irish Bob just can’t run a senate campaign with only $60 million on hand.

It was the week that an American president secured the release of a hostage from Turkey without trading a bunch of terrorist prisoners held here in the U.S. and without shipping planeloads of cash to a hostile government.  Just one more element of the un-American legacy of Barack Hussein Obama gone.

It was the week that Taylor Swift became a leftist hero by endorsing Tennessee Democrat senate candidate Phil Bredesen, and Bredesen’s campaign immediately fell completely apart.

It was the week that Kanye West became a leftist enemy by breaking bread with President Donald Trump, and every talking head on CNN and MSNBC went into full panic mode.  The anti-Kanye rhetoric coming out of those two fake news outlets sounded like something out of a 1940s Klan rally.

It was the week that Judge Brett Kavanaugh became Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh and there wasn’t a damn thing any Democrat on earth could do about it.

It was the week that the Democrats and the fake news media dropped Christine Ford like a hot potato to literally no one’s surprise.

It was the week that the Pantsuit Princess and Eric Holder openly declared themselves in favor of escalating violence from the American left.

It was the week that Nikki Haley announced she would be leaving her UN post at the end of the year, and every Trump supporter breathed a huge sigh of relief when he made it clear that Bushite globalist Dina Powell would not be her successor.

It was the week we found out that the Arizona Democrat senate candidate thinks her state is “the meth lab of America.”

Finally, It was the week that all the pollsters who have spent the last 9 months doing their best to convince us all a “blue wave” began to panic and warn their favored Democrats that hey, uh, well, ummmm…maybe that’s not really gonna happen after all.

Man, nobody could’ve seen that one coming.  Oh, wait…

That is all.

Everybody Stop Worrying About Ted Cruz

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Deep [racist] Thoughts by Chris Cuomo. – Here is real, actual stuff CNN’s fake host Chris Cuomo had to say about Kanye West’s visit to the Oval Office, courtesy of RealClearPolitics:

Cuomo said didn’t care about what West said, he wanted to know what racist thoughts were going on in the president’s head.

“My curiosity wasn’t about what came out of Kanye’s mouth. My wonder went to what is going on in Trump’s head,” Cuomo said.

“Let’s take a look at him. Here is my educated guess, OK? Other than a warm serotonin flush of happy hormone, imaginary headlines, blacks loves Trump, he’s blacker than Obama,” Cuomo, imagining racist scenarios that he thinks Trump would think up, said.

Yes, friends, this is what passes for political and social commentary from the fake hosts on the world’s fakest fakety-fake #fakenews channel these days.  Just one more reason why, if you watch CNN, you are part of the problem.

Man, nobody could’ve seen this one coming.  Oh, wait… – You might want to be sitting down when you read this, but ABC executives are now thinking that maybe, just maybe, they acted a tad to rashly in firing Roseanne Barr and trying to bring the “Roseanne” series back as “The Conners” without its main star.  I know, right?  Who could’ve thought?

According to a report at the Daily Mail, one ABC insider was quoted as saying “We didn’t think it through properly. What Roseanne did was wrong but we shouldn’t have rushed to fire her. It was almost a knee-jerk reaction by Ben [Sherwood] and Channing [Dungey] who should have launched an investigation. This would have given them more time to listen to the public, advertisers and cast members to determine the best decision.”

Oh, but the navel-gazing over at ABC gets even better.

“When we greenlit The Conners we thought that the public would tune in to see the family return but what we’ve discovered is that people want Roseanne – they don’t want the family by themselves.”  Somehow, you get the feeling that it isn’t exactly MENSA central over at the ABC headquarters these days.

Y’all need to quit worrying about Ted Cruz, ok? – All you folks out in states that are not named “Texas” need to quit sending me tweets, texts and emails expressing concern about Ted Cruz and his re-election race, ok?  Ted’s going to be just fine, because most Texans aren’t stupid.

Ted Cruz is going to win his race against Irish Bob O’Rourke by somewhere between 10-15% of the vote.  That’s how this race was always going to turn out, because despite what some “experts” in the Texas news media have been telling you, there is no “blue wave” materializing in our state, no real overriding desire for significant change among Texas voters.  There just isn’t.

Every election cycle has its own macro-tide of inertia, an overriding momentum within the population at large, either for change or for preservation of the status quo. All the “experts” in the media and the political consultant class tend to focus on little micro factors like this week’s hysteria about all the money O’Rourke raised in the 3rd quarter from thousands of suckers in California and New York, or what the latest poll from Quinnipiac/Emerson/Gallup/Rasmussen/CNN/ABC/NBC, etc. says.  In focusing on the micro-events, these “experts” almost all fail to accurately assess the inertia among the public at large.

This is why the polls and political “expert” class at large was so hilariously, embarrassingly wrong about the 2016 elections, not just in forecasting the presidential race but also the congressional elections.  Almost all of them, liberal and conservative alike, placed faith in the myriad polls without noting that there was a very heavy overriding mood among the public for change.  Simply put, 2016 was always going to be a “change” election, and Donald Trump was the only candidate on the ballot offering real, radical change.

This year, there is no such mood among the public, despite the best efforts of our fake news media to whip such a mood up with its 24/7 anti-Trump hysteria.  The economy is booming, people have more money in the bank thanks to the Trump tax cuts, the nation is relatively at peace in the world, and the regulatory boot of the federal government becomes lighter on a daily basis.  Nowhere in the nation is this more true than in Texas, where the oil and gas industry has helped to create one of the strongest state economies in the land.

Here is what has happened in the Cruz/Irish Bob race to this point:  Irish Bob started campaigning in earnest in January, and the Texas news media cranked up its fawning reporting on him at that time.  The national news media jumped into the Cult of Beto party in the spring, and Irish Bob had the playing field pretty much to himself right up until September, when Cruz finally began to campaign.  By that time, the various polls of the race were showing Cruz holding just a 3 to 5 point lead.

At that time, I told readers that, as Cruz cranks his campaign up and gets his ads up on television, and the voters of Texas begin to focus on who Irish Bob really is, those polls will begin to loosen up.  Guess what?  Polls taken over the past week now have Cruz leading by 8 and 9 points.  The other key dynamic in the polls in this race is that Irish Bob’s number never gets above 44-45.  That’s his ceiling, and it is one that is most likely overstated.

Think about it:  These same polls now show Governor Greg Abbott holding massive leads of 20 to 25 points over his hapless Democrat opponent, Lupe Valdez, who is completely out of her depth.  No one is arguing that this race is going to be anything but a hyper-blowout, yet the Texas media wants you to believe that hundreds of thousands of voters are going to go into the voting booth, cast a vote for the GOP gubernatorial candidate, but then switch parties and vote for the Democrat in the senate race.

That isn’t going to happen to any great extent – that’s not how voters in Texas or anywhere else behave anymore.  So what’s going to end up happening is that, in this cycle in which the maco-inertia in the electorate is for preserving the status quo, the voters of Texas are going to re-elect Ted Cruz by a margin of 10-15% of the vote, which is what I’ve been telling you was going to happen since January, when Irish Bob cranked up his campaign and started raising money from suckers in other states.

If you want to worry about senate races, focus on Arizona and Nevada and Missouri and Indiana, where the races really are close.  But leave us Texans alone, because Ted’s got this.

That is all.

That Week When Kanye West and Taylor Swift Traded Roles in the Democrat Narrative

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Giving advice like this is why she had to take a job at a third-rate cable outlet. – MSNBC’s pet fake conservative host Nicolle Wallace told Chris Matthews on “Hardball” yesterday that she advised Jeb Bush to physically attack Donald Trump after their first debate.: “I told Jeb Bush after that debate that I thought he should have punched [Trump] in the face.”  The demented Wallace said that doing so would have made Jeb! a hero.  All of which explains why Nicolle Wallace can’t get a job as a political advisor anymore.

Mmmmmm…smells like #Winning… – 

Senate confirms 15 Trump judges after GOP leaders, Democrats strike deal

“Everybody mount up!  We got us a runaway!”:  It is truly sad and astonishing how viciously the Democrats and their media toadies invariably go after any African American who strays from their leftist plantation.  Astonishing and disgusting and yes, sad.  It happens every time.

From Clarence Thomas to J.C. Watts to Herman Cain to Ben Carson to Tim Scott to Candace Owens, with many others in between, the playbook is always the same.  They’ve even done it to the great Jim Brown, one of the pioneers of the civil rights movement and a symbol of “Black Power” for half a century, for simply saying he doesn’t think kneeling in protest of the national anthem and American flag is appropriate.

Now comes Kanye West, one of the most successful Black music artists and businessmen of this or any generation, a man who just 13 years ago was hailed as a hero by these very same people when, on national television, he said “George Bush hates black people.”  Kanye was a hero again when he stole the mic from a teenage Taylor Swift at the MTV Video Music Awards show so he could take off on a rant about how Beyonce’ should have won the award for best video instead.

Kanye’s always been a little off-the-wall and more than a little “out there”, prone to going off on somewhat bizarre and disjointed tirades in public settings and speaking his mind far more bluntly than polite society thought was, well, appropriate, don’t you know. But as long as Kanye was sticking with the approved Democrat/media narrative that George W. Bush was a racist or Tay-Tay was just a privileged white girl stealing an award from a more deserving Black woman, Kanye was, like, totally awesome.  He wasn’t cray-cray, he was just Kanye bein’ Kanye.

But yesterday, Kanye goes to the White House wearing a red MAGA cap, hugs President Donald Trump and goes off on a terrific rant about how Trump’s pro-America, anti-Obama policies are in fact incredibly empowering for African Americans, and suddenly you see the leftist keepers of the Democrat talking points on MSNBC and CNN calling him “crazy,” a “house-negro”, an “embarrassment”, an “uncle Tom”, and even worse.  One fake “conservative” host on MSNBC accused him of having “mental problems” and the President of being “willing to exploit them.”  Interestingly, most of these things were said by white people, who, if they said exactly the same things about any Democrat black person would immediately be accused of being racists.

This week’s radical shifting of celebrity roles in our fake news media must have non-ideological African Americans suffering from whiplash.  Just a few weeks ago, the Democrats/media Axis of Propaganda’s narrative told them that Tay-Tay was the privileged little white girl who is still holding Beyonce’s trophy hostage, and Kanye was a symbol of Black empowerment.  Today, they’re supposed to now worship Tay-Tay because she endorsed a certain Democrat loser in Tennessee, and they’re supposed to hate Kanye for hugging a President.

Just a guess, but it seems likely that the millions of African Americans who now have jobs after collecting unemployment for 8 years under Barack Obama probably don’t much care what a bunch of mainly-white talking heads at MSNBC and CNN are saying about Kanye West.

And speaking of Tay-Tay… – Man, has it been a bad week for Taylor Swift, or what?  Sunday night, the pop singer finally broke her political silence, endorsing Democrat Phil Bredesen in his race for the U.S. Senate against Republican Marsha Blackburn.

At the time Tay-Tay jumped off the political cliff, the most recent polls indicated this was a very tight race.  But when the New York Times decided to do a live poll of the race two days later, it showed Blackburn with a huge 18 point lead.  Two additional polls issued this week also show Blackburn’s lead in the mid-teens.

Swift’s jump into politics was conveniently timed to coincide with her hosting the American Music Awards program Tuesday night, and organizers of the event were hopeful that the star could bring in yuuuuuge ratings.  Nope.  Tay-Tay’s gig was in fact the lowest-rated AMA show in history.

Combine that with the certainty that her ill-advised leap into leftist politics will no doubt result in a steep drop in her future music sales, and this has been the week from hell for poor Tay-Tay.  But hey, she has S.E. Cupp, Nicolle Wallace and the rest of the depraved nitwits who serve their Democrat masters on MSNBC on her side, so she’s got that going for her.

It isn’t much.

That is all.

Eric Holder Demonstrates Why Decent People Don’t Vote Democrat

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Gosh, wonder why we’ve never heard this on CNN?:  Kentucky Senator Rand Paul, who was one of the Republicans who was almost murdered when a lunatic Bernie Sanders disciple shot up a congressional GOP softball practice in 2017, told an interviewer yesterday that the shooter was screaming “this is for healthcare!” as he tried to kill everyone.  Strange how we’ve never seen that part of the story reported by any mainstream television network or in the pages of our nation’s newspapers.  So odd.  Must just be an oversight.

You’re gonna need some bigger boots, Eric. – Former fake attorney general Eric Holder, speaking to an audience of supporters of Democrat Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams, jumped on the Democrat civil war-promoting wagon train yesterday.  Taking issue with former first lady Michelle Obama’s famous admonition that “when they go low, we go high,” Holder advised his audience that they need to be meaner and tougher, saying “when they go low, we kick them.”

Holder went on to tell his whooping and hollering audience that “That’s what this new Democratic Party is about. We’re proud as hell to be Democrats.  We’re going to fight for the ideals of the Democratic Party.”

So, to be clear, this “new Democrat Party” is about Antifa terrorists attacking senior citizens on the streets of Portland, wailing social justice warriors clawing at the doors of the Supreme Court building, hiring a lineup of women to participate in an organized smear of a judicial nominee, mobs assaulting Republicans in restaurants and other public places, and on and on.  That’s the “new Democrat Party” Eric Holder is promoting.

Holder, of course, is just trying to keep pace with the Pantsuit Princess, who jumped onto the wagon train on Tuesday, and just joins a constantly-expanding list of Democrat “leaders” like Maxine Waters who are doing everything they can to foment public violence.  None of these “leaders” talk about what they expect the ultimate outcome of their promotion of violence to be, but any thinking person can see that, once a major political party takes this genie out of the bottle, it becomes increasingly hard to put it back in.

So long as no Democrat officeholder in a prominent position is willing to forcefully and unambiguously condemn this promotion of violence, the violence is going to escalate. Don’t kid yourself – they are all fully aware of this fact. Ultimately, as Senator Paul said yesterday, someone is going to get killed by these people. When that happens, all bets are off.

Our other problem is that law enforcement in our major cities – almost all of which are not coincidentally run by Democrats – is not doing its job to contain things.  Antifa mobs have basically been allowed to assault people with impunity as the police stand by and watch in places like Portland, Seattle, Berkeley and Washington, DC.  Even the Capitol Police have become complicit.  At last week’s occupation by a mob of protesters at the Hart Senate Office Building, a couple of them were filmed walking up to Amy Schumer and some famous sexpot model, asking them politely if they would like to be arrested for the cameras, and then gently making them go sit in a corner for an hour or so.

Folks, it is a violation of federal law for that mob to take over a government building like that.  Everyone there should have been handcuffed, loaded into vans and taken to local jails to be booked.  The way they were treated with kid gloves only serves to embolden the behavior.

I sarcastically commented that that made me long for the days of tear gas and rubber bullets.  But if law enforcement doesn’t start treating this stuff more seriously, that’s where we are headed.

And here’s the thing that the Democrat “leaders” encouraging this stuff don’t seem to be considering:  at the end of the day, if you antagonize us “normals” out here in flyover country too much, and start killing people, we’re by and large the ones with all the safes filled with guns and ammo.

The reality is that Antifa is mainly made up of a bunch of soft, white Millennial nerds from upper-middle class families who spend most of their time playing video games in the basement of their grandmother’s home, where they still live.  When they finally start killing people, which is inevitable as long as the Soros money keeps pouring in and the Democrat Party keeps helping organize them, they are going to be pretty much defenseless against the harsh retribution that will come their way unless the police start doing their jobs.

Democrats like Holder and Clinton and Waters and Obama and Tom Perez and Keith Ellison and Cory Booker and the many, many others who are stoking these fires are playing at a very, very dangerous game.  By urging already irrational people to commit increasingly violent and irrational acts, they are fanning the flames for an ultimate conflict that cannot and will not turn out well for their side.

This behavior is shameful and despicable, and it is why no decent person can even think about voting for any Democrat in this coming election.

 

That is all.

New York Times Live Polling Lays a Big Red Egg

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

The Winner of our King of Futile Gestures Award this week is…:  House Majority Leader and candidate to succeed Paul Ryan as Speaker Kevin McCarthy announced on Tuesday that he is introducing a stand-alone bill that will…drumroll please…fully fund the border wall!  Yayyyyy!!!!

Yes, friends, after working hand in glove with Speaker Ryan for almost two full years to repeatedly sandbag President Donald Trump on the wall funding, inventing lame excuse after lame excuse as to why said funding should not be included in one of the gigantic omnibus spending bills congress seems to pass every 3-4 months, Mr. McCarthy is making this big splash in the hopes of fooling GOP voters that it has a chance in hell of becoming law.

Pro tip:  It doesn’t.

Oh, if it comes to a vote it’ll pass the house for sure, because it only takes a majority vote there and the Republicans have a strong majority, at least until January.  But the senate, where 60 votes would be required and the GOP only has 51 seats?  Not a chance.

I like Congressman McCarthy, I really do.  Always have.  He is an earnest guy and mostly a real conservative.  He’s done a lot of “go along to get along” kind of stuff with Ryan just to be the loyal foot-soldier, and we all should understand that.  But he knows as well as anyone that the only way to get that border wall funding would be to include it in an omnibus spending bill that also contains stuff the Democrats really want, and have the guts to let the Democrats shut down the government if they want to do so.

A stand-alone bill on this has exactly zero chance of getting through the senate. It’s a futile gesture that mainly serves to highlight just how dishonestly the GOP congressional leadership has dealt with this issue for the past two years.

Oh, well, golly, that didn’t work out the way they’d hoped.:  The newsfakers at the New York Times decided recently that it would be a great idea to show everybody how their vaunted “Blue Wave” was shaping up by polling a number of races in the U.S. house and senate and show their demented readers the results in real time.  The live polls scheduled for yesterday included the “close” senate races in Texas, Nevada and Tennessee, three races in which GOP incumbents are facing what are considered to be “strong” Democrat challengers, including the media’s favorite Democrat, Irish Bob O’Rourke.

Surely, the Times’ newsfakers no doubt believed, our polling will show the Dems in the lead in at least two of these races.  After all, fake polls taken in every one of them had produced results showing the Democrat candidate no worse than tied in each an every one of them as recently as late August.

So what happened?  Well, the Times’ poll in Nevada does show the race between Trump-bashing RINO Dean Heller and Democrat Jacky Rosen very close, but with Heller in the lead at 46-45.  That was the “good” news for the Times staff.

In Texas, where the Times has repeatedly portrayed Irish Bob as another Kennedy as if that were a good thing, mean ol’ Ted Cruz comes in with a very comfortable 9 point lead of 53-44.  If you’ve been following the polls in this race, that 44% level appears to be the point at which Texas voters reach “Peak Beto”, as it were.

Over in Tennessee, it gets even worse for all the newsfakers at the Times, especially since most of them are no doubt huge Taylor Swift fans:  In that poll, Republican Marsha Blackburn, who has gained momentum in every poll take there in the last month, holds a whopping 18% lead over her Democrat challenger, ol’ what’s-his-name, at 57-39.  Phil Bredesen, that’s his name.

Prior to yesterday, the Times had conducted similar polling in a large number of house races around the country, and again ended up with far more of those “Red” guys and gals leading their favored “Blue” people than the fake newspaper had anticipated.  Just so you know I really didn’t make this stuff up, you can see all of those results at this link.

Because, you see, Democrats can only be civil if they win elections.  It’s in the constitution or something. – As always the lagging indicator of where her demented and depraved Party has already gone, the Pantsuit Princess decided to go all Maxine Waters in a CNN interview released on Tuesday, calling for an end to “civility” by the Democrats.  I’m not kidding – she apparently thinks what we have been seeing from her Party actually is them being “civil.”

“You cannot be civil with a political party that wants to destroy what you stand for, what you care about,” Clinton told CNN’s Christiane Amanpour. “That’s why I believe, if we are fortunate enough to win back the House and or the Senate, that’s when civility can start again.”

Yes, for sure.  It’s only when we place lunatics like Mad Maxine and the execrable Jerry Nadler as chairmen of congressional committees that we can achieve true civility in our nation.  This was in fact Coughing Crook’s way of overtly signaling her approval for heightened violence on our streets from Soros-paid protesters and violent Democrat proxy groups like Antifa, along with the kind of harassment and violence towards Republicans in public place that has been encouraged by Mad Maxine and many other Democrat office-holders.

Of course, the hilarious thing about this is that the Grasping Grifter was just reciting talking points written for her by her demented staff, and probably didn’t even understand the implications of what she was saying.  It’s been 30 years since the Hacking Hag uttered an unscripted word in public, and you can be sure that this interview is no exception.

This is the reason why she is always behind the direction of her Party instead of setting its tone.  Her mode of operation has always been to carefully calibrate everything she says based on the results of polls and focus groups, meaning that her shameful rhetoric is unerringly backwards-looking.

That’s not to give her a pass on this endorsement of street violence and ongoing Democrat Party insanity, it’s just to help explain how an obvious, blatant fraud and career criminal like the Fainting Felon can remain popular among her Party’s demented, willfully-ignorant voters three decades after she came onto the national scene.

That is all.
