Today’s Campaign Update
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)
Hey, remember when all the “experts” were telling you that President Donald Trump could not possibly successfully renegotiate the 25 year-old NAFTA deal? – Yeah, they were wrong about that, too.
Late last night, our deadline, we reached a wonderful new Trade Deal with Canada, to be added into the deal already reached with Mexico. The new name will be The United States Mexico Canada Agreement, or USMCA. It is a great deal for all three countries, solves the many……

….deficiencies and mistakes in NAFTA, greatly opens markets to our Farmers and Manufacturers, reduces Trade Barriers to the U.S. and will bring all three Great Nations together in competition with the rest of the world. The USMCA is a historic transaction!

The new name’s a little clumsy, but the deal is done, and the deal is much, much better for America’s workers, especially those in blue collar, farming and union jobs. Hey, remember when those were the kind of jobs the Democrat Party used to at least pretend to care about? Yeah, good times…
Today, as you absorb the no-doubt slanted news about this new trade agreement, remember that the very same “experts” who told you this could not be done are also telling you that Donald Trump will never, never, never, ever be able to really get the Crazy Little Fat Guy in North Korea to de-nuclearize the Korean Peninsula. Do not be surprised when the successful completion of that effort is a major plank in Trump’s re-election campaign in 2020.
The Teenage Drama Queen gets a by-line in the New York Times, and boy is it a hoot. – Former FBI Director and current teenage drama queen James Comey penned an op/ed for the sad old New York Times on Sunday, because of course he did. The most corrupt director the agency has ever had slammed the mounting of this week-long FBI investigation into all the absurd accusations directed at Judge Brett Kavanaugh, not be cause the charges are so obviously false, not because the Judge has already been the subject of 6 previous in-depth, open-ended FBI background checks, but because…wait for it…you can’t “put a shot clock” on an FBI investigation.
In other words, the very same corrupt, pathological liar who twice put a strict shot clock on the agency’s sham “investigation” into Hillary Clinton’s illegal email server has of course joined the Democrat chorus against the week-long time frame for this investigation that the Democrats agreed to just 3 days ago. There are perfectly descriptive words for James Comey, but I just can’t use them here.
Sunday’s @GDBlackmon Twitter Deep Thought…
The little Wifey and I are binge watching "Fringe: Season2". It is so weird watching the Dutchess of Sussex playing an FBI agent. She could get this Kavanaugh investigation done in about 4 minutes. pic.twitter.com/TSSKc7bDKq

Hey, you know it’s true.
Meanwhile, in the Texas Senate Race… – Last Thursday, when it looked like the Senate would be held into session over the weekend to deal with the Kavanaugh nomination, Ted Cruz informed Irish Bob O’Rourke that he would not be able to make it to Houston for their scheduled debate early Sunday evening. On Saturday morning, Cruz notified Irish Bob that he could in fact make it to Houston thanks to the idiotic machinations of Arizona Senator Jeff Flake, but Irish Bob declined, saying he now had made other “plans.”
So, what was Irish Bob doing at the very time the debate was supposed to be taking place? Why, he was engaged in an hour-long Facebook Live session from his kitchen.
Beto O’Rourke could have done debate right now in Houston and talked to millions of Texans. Instead he’s doing a live video to viewers from California, Boston, Florida etc. #TXSen pic.twitter.com/lwjomSnlKY

Obviously, Irish Bob still hasn’t figured out how he’s going to backtrack from his false denial of leaving the scene of the wreck he caused while driving drunk back in the 1990s. Until he does, we probably won’t be seeing any more debates between the two Texas senate candidates.
Back to the Kavanaugh nomination process one more time. – So, the Democrat playbook for this week is now clear…
- Agree to a limited FBI investigation to last no more than one week;
- Spend the weekend wailing that the investigation is tooooooooooo liiiiiiiiimmmmittttteeeeeddddd!!!;
- Find male “acquaintances” of Judge Kavanaugh from high school and college to tell Democrat media activists that the Judge, when a teenager, was a sloppy drunk;
- Pretend it’s a really big deal that the FBI is questioning the second, obviously lying, female accuser;
- Have the Dragon Lady from Hawaii all over TV claiming that the investigation is “falling apart” before it even gets started in earnest;
- And then, late in the week – probably Wednesday night or sometime Thursday – have another female accuser crawl out of the woodwork with more false allegations; or
- Maybe even have some leftwing activist parent of one of the kids Kavanaugh has coached in basketball over the years appear on CNN or MSNBC and accuse him of being a pedophile.
Or maybe both new accusations will come. Remember that the Democrats’ favorite Saul Alinskly tactic is “projection,” i.e., accusing the Republicans of the exact behaviors of which they themselves are guilty. Thus, accusations of pedophilia are pretty much inevitable, and indeed the leftists at USA Today already ran an op/ed implying that of Kavanaugh as an initial shot across the bow.
These people are demented, depraved and despicable, and nothing is beneath them. To them, this is a war, literally. It is a war not just on Judge Kavanaugh, not just on President Trump, not just on Republicans, but on all Americans who are not part of one of their aggrieved classes. Frankly, it has even become a war on many of them – witness the bullying and booing of Kanye West that took place during his appearance on Saturday Night Live this past weekend.
This is not your father’s Democrat Party. There are no moderates in that party anymore, no Scoop Jackson Democrats or even Lloyd Benson Democrats. It is only possible to see their true nature with clear eyes when you accept the reality that there simply are no more decent people in the national Democrat Party today. Not one.
These people are all about one thing: The re-acquisition of power. They will do literally anything to achieve that goal. So buckle up, and don’t be surprised by the depravity to come this week.
That is all.
