Donald Trump is Changing Everything

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

I wonder what else President Donald Trump will never do?  –

“He won’t last a week.”

“He won’t stay in this race past the first debate.”

“He never survive those comments about John McCain.”

“That first debate was the beginning of the end for Donald Trump.”

“He’ll never be able to compete with Jeb!”

“He’ll be out of the race before the Iowa Caucuses.”

“No way he wins the New Hampshire Primary.”

“South Carolina will be the beginning of the end for Donald Trump.”

“No way he beats Ted Cruz in Indiana.”

“No way he survives the Billy Bush tape.”

“He’ll never win Florida.”

“Ohio, Michigan and Pennsylvania are blue states.”

“He’ll resign the office by April.”

“He’ll quit before the end of 2017.”

“He can’t just let the oil industry drill our way to energy security.”

“He’ll never pull out of the Paris Accords.”

“No way he’ll ever get those tax cuts done.”

“He’ll never pull out of the Iran deal.”

“He can’t wave a magic wand and bring all those manufacturing jobs back.”

“He’ll never achieve 3% GDP growth.”

“He’ll never make a deal with Kim Jong un.”

This morning, it continues:

“The U.S. and North Korea are still miles apart.”

“North Korea has already won a lot.”  (Huh???)

And on and on and on it will continue, because the fake news media and the Democrats have nothing else – this is all they’ve got.

You want to know who else hates Donald Trump with a renewed passion this morning?  The Washington, D.C. professional foreign policy class.  Why?  Because the President just demonstrated that they are clueless, irrelevant and often counterproductive to our nation’s security.

This class of leeches on the American taxpayer has bumbled, stumbled and fumbled around with the North Korea problem for 64 years, and every effort they’ve made and every diplomatic shibboleth to which they have clung has only made the situation worse.  Here comes Donald Trump, this “know-nothing” who doesn’t even speak the passive/aggressive, get-nothing-done, move-at-a-snail’s-pace language of “diplomacy” and rejects every myth these people have constructed around the issue since 1954, and he has an agreement to completely de-nuclearize the Korean Peninsula to send to the Senate for ratification?

Why has this happened?  First, because this President, over the course of 14 months, threatened the little Dictator into the realization that his situation was hopeless and that he had a choice of entering into some agreement or end up engaged in a military conflict he had no hope of winning.  Second, because the American President allowed him to take the right way out of his mess while saving face.  That’s what meeting with Kim face to face – an act no previous president would have even considered on the feverish advice of this foreign policy class of morons – was all about.

The third reason is that this President has also been negotiating this deal with China behind the scenes for more than a year now.  The subject of China’s client state has been made a part of every conversation between Donald Trump and Xi Jinping and every negotiation between the two nations on trade and other matters.  By strategically making China an integral part of this process, President Trump has also allowed Xi to save face, which is crucially important.

So here we have arrived at an historic turning point in global history, a turning point that holds the promise of making every nation on the face of the earth more secure, and it has happened not because of the efforts and advice of the professional foreign policy class, but in spite of it.  Oh, yeah – they hate Trump, they hate him with a passion this morning.

One raving idiot early this morning actually claimed America is “getting nothing” out of this deal.  My goodness.  Here is what America has already gotten:

  • The return of three political prisoners, unharmed, to their families;
  • The destruction of Kim’s main nuclear testing facility, which took place a month ago and the fake news media wants you to forget happened;

Here is what America stands to gain:

  • The destruction of Kim’s remaining nuclear capability, which Trump expects to happen “quickly”;
  • The reduction of nuclear tensions across the globe;
  • The stand-down of U.S. armed forces in South Korea after 64 long years;
  • The return of the remains of thousands of U.S. servicemen killed during the Korean conflict to their families;
  • The saving of tens of billions of dollars every year thanks to being relieved of the burden of having to defend South Korea, Japan, Guam, Hawaii and the U.S. mainland from the machinations of a seemingly mad, nuclear-armed dictator.
  • An ultimate end to the uninterrupted risking of thousands of American military lives in a foreign land halfway around the world.

Yeah, that’s a big bag of nothing right there.  Where do they find these clowns?

So, add the professional foreign policy class to all the other classes of DC Swamp creatures who already hated this President:  The professional campaign class, the professional influence class, the campaign advertising and messaging class, the fake news media class, and all the other classes of DC hangers-on that he has shown to be irrelevant since he announced his campaign in mid-2015.

This is history being made on a grand scale, and it’s all taking place so rapidly that we often hardly have the chance to pause and take it all in.  Donald Trump receives and deserves the credit for it, but it’s important to also give credit to the American voter, without whose judgment Mr. Trump would have never assumed office.

The American people took a huge risk on a very unconventional candidate in November 2016, and they are being richly rewarded for having done so.

Just another day of Donald Trump is changing everything America.

That is all.

If Democrats Didn’t Exist, No One in Their Right Mind Would Dream of Making Them Up

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

I thought this must be a satire piece in The Onion, but it turns out someone actually believes this is really the Democrats’ problem. – The New York Times ran an op/ed penned by – naturally – a couple of professors – who contend that the real problem the Democrat Party has is that it’s just too darn…wait for it…oh, you have to wait for this one…MODERATE!!!!

Yes, friends, these two people who probably have never spent a moment outside of academia believe that the biggest mistake the Dems made in 2016 was not nominating an outright communist, and nominating a mere aspiring fascist dictator instead.  Let’s all hope that San Fran Nan, Chuckie Schumer and the rest of what passes for “leadership” in the Democrat Party today all read this piece and take it to heart.  If they do, the Democrat Party won’t even exist 8 years from now.

Dude, there are proper times to complain.  This is not one of those times. – Mike Repole, the owner of two horses that finished as poor also-rans in Saturday’s Belmont Stakes, is complaining that the trainer of Triple Crown winner Justify had a second horse in the race that was serving as an “offensive lineman” for the winner, interfering with other horses.

There’s just one problem with this argument:  Repole’s horses finished a very poor fourth and dead last, and the accused horse ran behind the 4th place finisher almost the entire race, finishing 8th in his own right.  Repole even said that Justify, who ran in first place wire to wire and was barely challenged, was the “rightful winner.”  So what’s the complaint?  Does he think his 10th place horse might have finished 9th were it not for the “interference?”

Sometimes it’s best just to remain quiet and take your lumps.

But back to Democrats… – The utter depravity and intellectual poverty of the American left was on full display over the weekend as two of its most prominent celebrity leaders opened their mouths and revealed the #resistance for the oozing pustule of anti-Americanism it truly is.

Once-great actor Robert DeNiro took the mike at last night’s Tony Awards to introduce fellow faded talent Bruce Springsteen and decided to go off-script, saying “I’m just gonna say two words:  F*ck Trump.”  For this, he received a standing ovation from the #resistance-filled awards show audience.  If you’re wondering why I quit trying to have any sort of reasoned conversation with leftists along about 1996, there you go.

Earlier in the weekend, the execrable Bill Maher told his audience that “I feel like the bottom [of the economy] has to fall out at some point.  By the way, I’m hoping for it because one way you get rid of Trump is a crashing economy. So please, bring on the recession.”

Thus, he revealed the Democrat Party’s entire economic program for the 2018 elections.  As is always the case, the single most damaging thing any Democrat can do is open his mouth and utter what he’s really thinking.  Which is why they spend pretty much every waking moment lying.

From our Canadian Metro-sexual Problems file… – At one of his press availabilities at this weekend’s G7 conference, one of Canada Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s fake eyebrows (yes, he apparently wears fake eyebrows) came loose and almost slid down into his left eye:

This led to all sorts of uproar and hilarity in social media, even to the point where some enterprising soul created a Twitter account named “Trudeau’s Eyebrows.”  Here is the account’s first tweet:

It’s fair to note here that if Justin Trudeau were an American politician, he’d be a Democrat.  Just sayin’.

And speaking of people who would be mainstream Democrats if they lived in the United States of America, Venezuela’s socialist thug dictator Nicolas Maduro’s regime has now devastated the once-thriving nation so drastically that polio is making a comeback.

Oh, but that’s not all, not by a long shot.  Venezuela has also “accounted for 85 percent of  of measles reported across Latin America and the Caribbean over the past year,” according to the Pan-American Health Organization.  Proving one more time that there is literally nothing – not one damn thing – that leftist politicians cannot destroy when given the chance.

Let’s don’t give them another chance to destroy our country this November, ok?

Just another day of leftists destroying stuff America.

That is all.

The G7 Summit: Trump’s Reykjavik Moment

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Someone really needs to relieve John McCain of his I-phone. – The guy whose rejection by the American people gave us Barack Hussein Obama got all upset on Saturday over President Trump’s refusal to bow to our Euro-Canadian betters at the G7 summit, and decided to send the following tweet:

There is absolutely no evidence whatsoever that a bipartisan majority of the American people remain pro-globalization, but nevermind, the Senator from the news media has decided it is so.  And so, the guy who could not win the presidency in his own right decides to undermine the trade policy efforts of the guy who was able to win the presidency.

Delete your account, Senator McCain, and while you’re at it, resign the senate seat that you have not manned for a single day this year.  It’s time.

We are witnessing history on a grand scale. – Make no mistake about it, this G7 meeting was the most consequential such meeting ever held, an event every bit as crucial for the future of the free world as Reagan’s walking away from Gorbachev’s siren song at Reykjavik in 1986.  This is true for one simple reason:  The most powerful nation present, by far, now refuses to speak with the forked tongue of globalism.  What’s more, probably the second most powerful nation present – at least economically – is also trending in that direction.

Take a look at this very telling picture:

The first thing you notice is that the only guy seated is completely dominating the room.  He’s the absolute center of everyone’s attention, the singular target of their pleading and scolding.  The second thing you notice is the body language of Shinzo Abe, the Prime Minister of Japan, is exactly the same as President Trump’s.  They’re both taking in the preaching of Macron and Merkel, and not buying a word of what they’re saying.

Why?  Because they both know that these European peacocks are powerless without the backing of the United States of America.  Abe, in fact, knows that is the truth about his own country, and has been the truth since the end of World War II.

Despite all the shrill denunciations of President Trump in the fake American news media today, every bit of real leverage in that room is on America’s side.  The leaders of the other G7 nations know that, they know their economies can’t survive without the American largesse and one-sided trade practices they’ve enjoyed for 70+ years, and that is why they so detest Donald Trump.  He refuses to speak the false language of globalism that Senator McCain wants him to speak and which every previous U.S. president since Reagan has gladly spoken.

Senator McCain and his fellow establishment Republicans, along with every Democrat and fake journalist practicing today would have Mr. Trump simply surrender all that leverage, all that power, in the name of globalism and their fool’s notion of “fairness.”

This President isn’t going to do that because, unlike his four immediate predecessors in office, he understands the crucial nature of leverage and power, and plans to keep using both to advance the interests not of some international “world order”, but of the American people.

Today, he arrives in Singapore for preparations for his June 12 summit meeting with the Crazy Little Fat Guy from North Korea, Kim Jong Un.  The very same establishment Republicans, Democrats and fake journalists and talking heads who for the past two days have scolded President Trump for having the  nerve to jealously protect American interests and deploy our country’s massive leverage in international negotiations will now shift to fretting that Mr. Trump is now going to somehow completely surrender all that leverage and power in his negotiations with the little Rocket Man.

The hilarious part of all of this is that they’re all too dim and lacking in self-awareness to even understand the massive inherent contradictions and rank hypocrisy in their own arguments.  There is absolutely no reason at all to believe that this President – in stark contrast to his predecessors – will do anything other than jealously protect American interests and strongly deploy U.S. leverage while at the same time giving Kim the opportunity to concede what he must concede in order to improve his and his country’s situation.

But hey, this is what these people do – what they have been doing for the last 30 years, in fact.  It’s all they know, and it’s why our country is in inherently unfair trade agreements with pretty much every other major economy on the face of the earth, and it’s why Trump inherited a situation in which North Korea had been able to build its own nuclear capability as the free world stood by and did nothing.

In the magnificent press conference he held as he exited the G7 to head for Singapore on Saturday, the President in fact placed the blame for all of this squarely where it belongs:  On America’s past leaders.  “They can’t charge us 270 percent and we charge them nothing, that doesn’t work anymore,” he said before adding that he believes these other countries are now, despite outward appearances, committed to moving toward fairer trade agreements.  “I don’t blame them, I blame our leaders,” he continued. “In fact, I congratulate leaders of other countries for so crazily being able to make those trade deals that were so good for their country and bad for the United States.”

Exactly.  Our leaders have been suckers for too long.

“We are like the piggy bank that everybody is robbing,” he added,  “And that ends.”

John McCain and his fellow globalists hate that, because treating the American taxpayer as a massive piggy bank is what they’ve done for their entire adult lives.  Trump threatens their entire world view, and that’s why they hate him so desperately.

It’s very important – and telling – to note that Ronald Reagan received exactly the same reaction from milquetoast Republicans and the fake American news media after he walked away from Reyjavik.  Less than 3 years after he did that, the Soviet Union collapsed and the Berlin Wall came down.

It’s isn’t going to take that long for Trump to get the more favorable trade deals he is seeking from these powerless apparatchiks.  It will probably all be done within a year.  Because at the end of the day, all the leverage and power are in America’s hands, and Trump isn’t going to surrender it.

Just another day of Trump putting America first, and all the globalists hating him for it.

That is all.

Trump Dominates the G7, and the Globalist Community Can’t Stand it

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Godspeed, Charles Krauthammer – I read Dr. Charles Krauthammer’s letter on Friday with feelings fondness and sadness.  I’ve been a big fan of his writing – and later of his commentary on the Fox All-Star panel discussions – for at least 30 years now, so the news that he has only a few more weeks to live in this life is something I find to be profoundly sad, although I’ve had a feeling for months now that this news was coming.

Dr. Krauthammer won a Pulitzer Prize in 1985 for his commentaries, back when Pulitzer Prizes were awarded for actual, outstanding contributions to journalism and not for the sort of fake news hackery for which several CNN employees were awarded a few weeks ago.  Krauthammer won that Prize for good reason:  He was the best in the business, and remained so for many years afterwards.

I did not always agree with Krauthammer – he was a notorious #NeverTrump adherent throughout 2015 and 2016, after all – but I always looked forward to his viewpoint, because he was unerringly able to make his case through supportable logic and wit.  Other #NeverTrumpers whose names I won’t name could learn much from the Doctor in this regard.

Bret Baier and his occasional fill-in hosts have had a difficult time finding adequate replacements for Krauthammer, and the All-Star panel will never be the same without him.  Unlike many of the others who try unsuccessfully to fill the void, the Doctor was always able to disagree without resorting to hyperbole or disagreeable tactics.

Logic, facts and wit were all he ever needed.  He was one of a kind, and will be extremely missed.

He’s good enough, he’s sexy enough, and doggonit, the ladies like him. – Disgraced ex-Senator Al Franken received some defending he probably didn’t want, given the source, on Friday when disgraced ex-President and lifelong woman abuser Bill Clinton decided to weigh in on his case.  Somehow I’m thinking Franken would have preferred for ol’ Slick to just leave bad enough alone.  Just a guess.

Sacre’ bleu – he really means that ‘America first’ nonsense? – Oh, golly, our G7 “allies” are all verklempt at President Donald Trump over the import tariffs he has gone about implementing recently.  The President was singularly unperturbed about all the bitter scorn he was getting from the Angela Merkels and boy leaders of France and Canada, repeatedly expressing his certainty that those countries and others will ultimately come around and negotiate more equitable tariff deals rather than simply endure the reciprocal tariffs the U.S. has recently implemented

Most of these other countries – France, Germany, Great Britain, Italy and Japan – have enjoyed essentially being on the U.S. dole since the end of World War II.  The U.S. started what has become a 70+ year massive transfer of wealth to those nations with the implementation of the Marshall Plan in 1948, and has expanded on that initial $13 billion outlay ever since.

President after president and congress after congress have agreed to enact one-sided tariff policies that overwhelmingly advantage these other nations’ economies, adding Canada and Mexico to this wealth-and-jobs-draining mix in the mid-1990s with the NAFTA deal and adding China in more recently for good measure.  Our country has, for what were initially valid reasons, also relieved the Europeans and Canada from the burden of having to truly pay for their own military defense, spending hundreds of billions of dollars every year by having our own military personnel bases, missiles and other tools of war stationed on Eastern Europe and Japan even today, long after the Soviet Union disappeared and the economies of Germany and Japan recovered to world power stature.

To make matters even more absurd, Barack Obama and John Kerry chose to elevate this massive transfer of U.S. wealth to these other countries by committing our country to the heinous Paris Climate Accords, which were every bit the massive fraud on the American public that the Iran deal was.  These Accords had literally nothing to do with “climate” and everything to do with transferring trillions more U.S. dollars to the other signatory nations over the course of 15 years.

Want proof?  As of today, the United States is the only nation earth that is not a signatory to this fraudulent agreement, and is also the only nation on earth that has actually met and exceeded its emissions reductions “goals” under the deal.  Of course all those other countries are upset – they were all looking forward to getting their slice of that gigantic pie.

So it’s no surprise that Merkel and Macron and the Boy Prince of Canada are bitter:  They see a money spigot that has flowed from the United States of America for decades beginning to slow and have no idea how they’re going to tell their citizens that their economies are going to have to bear the cost of fielding real militaries and pay their own ways.  They’re like a couple of parents who have sponged off their rich uncle for decades suddenly having to face telling their 30 year-old kids they’re going to have to move out of the house because they’ve been cut off by Uncle Sam.

But here’s the big secret the fake news media in this country won’t tell you:  President Trump isn’t looking to cut all these spoiled children states off completely – he never promised that.  He’s simply looking for concessions from them that are substantial enough to give him the ability to keep his campaign promise of negotiating a “better deal for America.”

Canada is a great example:  The Canadian government has for many years shipped Chinese goods into the U.S. tariff-free under NAFTA due to a specific exemption in that treaty.  All the Boy Prince has to do is concede on that inherently unfair provision and the rest of NAFTA will remain largely intact.  The other countries in the G7 have their own inherently unfair tariff provisions that are unreasonable and should be conceded in order to avoid an outright trade war that benefits no one.

It isn’t 1948 anymore – if Italy’s economy is still a wreck, the United States has no responsibility for that.  If Germany has idiotically assumed the societal burden of importing more than a million Muslim refugees into its country, that was not America’s decision.  If England’s economy is struggling under the growing burdens of creeping fascim, America did not do that.  Sorry.

These other leaders dislike President Trump because, unlike most of his post-WWII predecessors, he refuses to smile and keep up the globalist lie.  He’s exposing them for the leeches they have long been, and won’t be giving in.  They all know this, they know the difficulties this new reality will cause them at home, and really have no idea how they’re going to deal with it all.

America First.  Finally, a U.S. President who means that when he says it.  Despite all the warnings Trump gave them throughout 2015 and 2016, these other national leaders never believed he would follow through.

Just another day of Trump putting America first.

That is all.

DOJ Brings the Hammer Down on the Senate Intelligence Committee

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Here’s what 40 years of Democrats refusing to address the state’s water supply have done for California… – “Californians May Have to Choose Between Showers and Laundry with New 55-Gallon Water Limit.”  That’s the headline of a PJ Media story detailing the looming impacts of two new bills just signed into law by California Governor Jerry Brown, the provisions of which would impose draconian new water conservation measures on ordinary Californians, while naturally also providing exemptions for all the state’s wealthy, who are overwhelmingly white Democrats like Nancy Pelosi, Dianne Feinstein and Gov. Brown.

The bills would impose fines of up to $10,000 per day for violators, while at the same time providing exemptions for swimming pools, spas and those ever-popular “water features” in all the state’s 6-figure swimming pools.  This is the Democrat Party in action, folks, and they want to bring this kind of elitist discrimination to the rest of the country.  Don’t kid yourselves otherwise.

Tired of all this Winning yet?  Part I – Tuesday was a really lousy day for the Democrats, with voter enthusiasm and turnout down in Democrat primaries and up in GOP races all over the country.  With the fake news media-promoted “Blue Wave” in danger of fading from memory, the news fakers at the raging dumpster fire that is NBC News felt the need to issue a fake poll  purporting to show the Democrats holding a 10 point lead once again in the congressional generic ballot measure.

As I chronicled during the 2016 campaign, this is a tactic that NBC and ABC seemed be tag-teaming during the general election, issuing some wild outlier poll anytime the RealClearPolitics polling average between the Pantsuit Princess and Donald Trump became uncomfortably close.  Guess this week was NBC’s turn.  It’s truly pathetic, but its what these people do.

Tired of all this Winning yet?  Part II – Perhaps the most gratifying aspect of Tuesdays results in California came in the fact that almost all of the George Soros-backed district attorney candidates got their evil heads handed to them.  Soros has been pouring tens of millions of dollars into local district attorney races all over the country this year in an attempt to put soft-on-crime prosecutors in place in his never-ending efforts to completely destroy American society.

It’s always a great day for America when Soros has a bad day.

And this time he really, really means it!  Promise.  Really.  Seriously, he isn’t kidding this time.  You betcha. – DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz sent a letter to the House Oversight Committee that he will be releasing his report on the FBI’s fake investigation into the Pantsuit Princess’s email scandal on June 14.  He has also agreed to appear before that committee to testify on June 18.

Guess what?  June 14 also happens to be Donald J. Trump’s 72nd birthday.  Happy birthday to you!

Wait, what?  Jeff Sessions is still alive and on the job?  Who knew? – The Justice Department announced on Thursday the indictment of one James A. Wolfe, 58, who has served as the Senate Intelligence Committee’s director of security for nearly three decades, for  allegedly making “false statements to agents in December about his contacts with three reporters.”  Investigators are looking into allegations that Wolfe leaked classified information to his girlfriend, a reporter who works for…wait for it…can you guess?…the New York Times!  Wow, that’s a shocker, right?

Ok, it was a 50/50 shot – the only other logical guess would have been the Washington Post, but the Times had a leg up on the competition for this particular criminal endeavor.  The Senate Intel Committee is that execrable bunch led by deep state Republican Richard Burr and ranking Democrat Mark Warner.  The roster includes a veritable who’s who of deep state Rs and Ds including Dianne Feinstein, Marco Rubio, Roy Blount, Angus King and Kamala Harris.

So, it’s only natural that the senior staffer thought to be leaking national security secrets to some leftwing NYTimes reporter named Ali Watkins – whose leftist resume’ sports previous stops at places like Buzzfeed, Politico and McClatchy News – works for this specific committee.  Remember, this is the same committee that gave us Daniel Jones, the former Feinstein shill who in late 2017 raised $50 million from Democrat donors to pay Christopher Steele and Fusion GPS to start dummying up a second fake Trump Dossier.  No word which NYTimes or WaPo reporter Jones is dating, but it’s apparently a safe bet there is one.

Oh, and guess what?  CNN reported last night that Mr. Jones is also now the subject of a DOJ investigation for alleged leaks of classified information.  Of course, it is CNN, so that report could turn out to be hilariously fake, but at this point it’s all the information we have.

Anyway, as a part of the investigation into Mr. Wolfe, Justice Department lawyers “notified Watkins on Feb. 13 that the DOJ had obtained information on her Google email accounts and Verizon phone, the Times reported. The seized records spanned years before and after Watkins joined the Times in 2017 to cover federal law enforcement.” The Times and the rest of the fake news media is in a big uproar about this tactic this morning.  Funny, they didn’t seem to care much when the Obama DOJ did that and far, far worse to Fox News reporter James Rosen and the dogged Sharryl Atkisson, who then worked for CBS.

But now that a Republican is in the White House, suddenly the fake news media gives a damn about the first amendment.  Funny how that works, huh?

But here’s the thing about that first amendment deal:  It is there to protect a free and independent press so it can serve as the public’s watchdog.  It was not intended to protect a bunch of hyper-partisan hacks who work every day to negatively impact the national security of the United States.

News organs that refuse to live up to that responsibility deserve what they get.

Just another day in Jeff Sessions Lives! America.

That is all.

If ABC’s Report Is Accurate, James Comey Really is Just a Teenage Drama Queen

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Tired of all this Winning yet? – I’ve never had much use for anyone named Kardashian, but damned if Kim Kardashian West didn’t finally do something positive with her fame.  Of course, it took President Donald Trump (I never tire of typing those three words) to bring out the #Winner she always had deep inside.

On Wednesday, President Trump, based on a plea from Ms. Kardashian West, announced a full commutation of the life sentence that was despicably given to Alice Marie Johnson for non-violent drug offenses in 1996.  In announcing the clemency action, the White House issued the following statement:

“Ms. Johnson has accepted responsibility for her past behavior and has been a model prisoner over the past two decades. Despite receiving a life sentence, Alice worked hard to rehabilitate herself in prison, and act as a mentor to her fellow inmates.  While this administration will always be very tough on crime, it believes that those who have paid their debt to society and worked hard to better themselves while in prison deserve a second chance.”
This is such an odd case, in that Kim K. and others lobbied hard for Barack Obama, who pardoned thousands of drug offenders, many of whom were violent, hardened, unrepentant offenders, during his terms in office, to act on Ms. Johnson’s case.  But for some reason, most likely because there was nothing in it for himself, Obama refused to act on this case of a non-violent grandmother who was given such an absurdly harsh sentence.

But then, Obama also could not be convinced by Sylvester Stallone and others to issue the pardon for boxing great Jack Johnson, either.  Such an odd, odd man.

Naturally, the fake news hacks at CNN got this line of BS from some unidentified Obama shill on the matter:

“President Barack Obama did not intervene in the case during his eight years in office because the Justice Department recommended denying Johnson’s request for a commutation. Three requests were made — one during his first term, two during his second — that were rejected, including a final plea on January 6, 2017, only days before Obama left office.
The requests never reached Obama’s desk, a senior Obama administration official tells CNN, because he followed Justice Department recommendations.”

Thus, we are to believe that Barack Obama pardoned hundreds of often-violent drug offenders – far more such offenders than the previous 7 presidents combined – because that was the recommendation of his utterly corrupted Justice Department.  Ok, actually, that’s totally believable, come to think of it.  Now it all makes absolute sense.  My goodness.

Hey, maybe they should have just revoked his recess privileges and sent him to study hall. –

So, James Comey’s media friends, led by the hacks at ABC, got busy on Wednesday rolling out what will obviously be his line of defense to the pending report from Inspector General Michael Horowitz.  This line goes like this:  The ex-FBI Director and current teenage drama queen might have been “insubordinate” and maybe, just maybe he “defied authority,” but darn it, he didn’t do anything “illegal.”

And besides, he “defied authority” and “ignored agency guidelines” not to protect the Pantsuit Princess, but to protect the country!!!!!!

So, just as Comey himself, working in concert with the deep state fake media lapdogs, cleared the Fainting Felon by declaring her to be “extremely careless” instead of the proper “criminally negligent” in the handling of national secrets, so Comey’s fake news buddies will attempt to clear him using tortured rationalizations to describe obviously criminal behavior.

Readers have no doubt noticed that I’ve been referring to Comey in recent weeks as a “teenage drama queen.”  This is because much of his goofy book reads like a teenage girl’s diary.

But it occurs to me that these descriptions of his behavior – “defied authority”, “insubordination,” “ignored guidelines” – all describe the behavior of the classic teenage drama queen.  The ABC story reads like a note you parents might have gotten from your son’s or daughter’s junior high principal when your kids were in their rebellious years.  If ABC is to be believed, it appears that Mr. Comey entered into his junior high rebellious phase along about the Spring of 2016.

Or hey, maybe Comey reads the Campaign Update each morning, and just decided to adopt my taunts as a defense strategy.  Who knows, it might work out for him.

In all seriousness, let’s remember a couple of salient points about the Pantsuit Princess’s email scandal, which is the subject of this next IG report:

  • Barack Obama, the President of the United States, knew her private email address and used it for official business, something Comey and the FBI refused to ever look into;
  • The FBI never made any effort to seize the DNC’s email server, which the DNC claimed to have been hacked, never made any real effort at all to determine if that claim was true or not;
  • The Fainting Felon’s longtime companion Huma Abedin was forwarding all of her private emails to a computer used by her pervert husband to prey on little girls.

Those are just three of the most heinous among dozens of outstanding questions about this scandal, questions that Comey’s FBI made no real effort to truly investigate.  Given all of that, if what ABC reports is truly the worst that the IG’s report has to say about the Teenage Drama Queen, then Mr. Horowitz is obviously useless and this entire charade is just more deep state Kabuki theater.

All we can do is wait and see, and the waiting to see is getting very, very old.

Just another day in let’s hope this isn’t just more Kabuki theater America.

That is all.

The FBI’s Deep State Cabal Continues to Unravel, One Slimey Thread at a Time

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Yeah, that?  That’s a terrible idea.  But let’s go ahead and do it anyway. – Not one, but two of the dumbest decisions in American history were announced yesterday by completely unrelated businesses, and amazingly, neither of those businesses was named Starbucks.

First, the dimwits who run the Miss America Pageant, which literally began in the 1920s as nothing but a swimsuit competition designed to keep tourists in Atlantic City for a week past Labor Day, announced they would be cancelling the pageant’s… wait for it…swimsuit competition!

Thus ensuring that, in about 5 years, we won’t have the Miss America Pageant to kick around anymore.  Adios!

Second, the people at IHOP – aka, the International House of Pancakes – one of the most iconic breakfast houses in American history, have come up with the genius idea of changing the acronym to “IHOB.”  The catch is that they aren’t telling anybody what the “B” stands for until next Monday, but hey, just guessing here, it might just stand for “Breakfast” since that’s what the chain specializes in.

Thus ensuring that we won’t have IHOP to kick around anymore after Monday, and probably won’t have IHOB to kick around anymore in about 5 years from now.

Who makes decisions like this?  Seriously.

Ok, Bill, tell us something we don’t already know. – The FBI’s Chief of Counterintelligence, Bill Priestap, spent 8 hours testifying behind closed doors to a joint meeting of the House Judiciary and House Oversight Committees about his role and the role of others in the FBI’s sham investigation of the Pantsuit Princess’s email scandal.

While others involved the fake investigation have either lost their jobs (James Comey, Andrew McCabe, James Baker, Lisa Page) or been demoted and reassigned since last November (Peter Strzok, Bruce Ohr), Priestap has conspicuously remained in his job, where he served as Super Duper Agent Peter Strzok’s direct boss.  This has lead to much speculation that he has long been a cooperating witness for ongoing DOJ investigations being conducted by Inspector General Michael Horowitz and U.S. Attorney John Huber.

The most interesting part about Priestap’s 8 hours on the stand, as far as the public knows, is that none of his testimony has yet been leaked to the New York Times or the Washington Post.  We can be absolutely certain sure that if anything Priestap said was positive for the Democrats or the Fainting Felon it would have already appeared in stories by both of those newspapers.

The only leak as of this writing comes from Catherine Herridge at Fox News, who reported late yesterday that a “source” said Priestap testified that Strzok’s role in the FBI’s shenanigans was even more extensive than we already know, which, given that we already know that he was involved in literally every.  damn.  thing. hardly seems possible.  But there you are.

Priestap’s long-awaited testimony appears to be one step in setting the stage for the release of Horowitz’s also long-awaited report on the fake email investigation and other Coughing Crook-related matters that the FBI chose to cover up during the Obama years.  Interestingly, a second such step took place yesterday afternoon…

Life sure does come at you fast, huh Andy? – Hey, remember when ex-Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe assured everyone that he hadn’t ever done anything wrong late last year?  And remember when he threatened to sue President Trump for slander?  And remember when he threatened to take everybody down with him if he was fired before his pension was fully vested?  And remember when he got fired and wrote that scathing op/ed for the Washington Post claiming he had done nothing wrong and it was all such a huge injustice?  And remember how he did that Gofundme campaign and got a bunch of idiotic suckers to give him half a million dollars for his legal defense fund?  And remember how several Democrat members of congress offered to give him jobs so he could be employed long enough to fully earn his pension?

Yeah…good times…good times.

Late yesterday, this very same Andrew McCabe had his high-paid lawyer send a letter to Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley begging for immunity from criminal prosecution in exchange for testimony before the Committee.  Funny how all that bravado and unbridled hubris starts to disappear as the wheels of justice roll inexorably in these folks’ direction.

Just a note about that IG report… – If you’re feeling frustrated at the constant delays in getting this report released, trust me, you have plenty of company.  Including me.

But here’s the way to look at this:  The people who are the subjects of the IG investigation and still working within the FBI and DOJ have now had this report in-hand for almost three weeks.  Sean Hannity was reporting that yesterday as if it is something unusual, but it is in fact standard operating procedure:  Any current employee accused of wrongdoing by the IG is given an opportunity to respond and offer exculpatory evidence before these reports are made public.

But in those three weeks, not a word of this report has been leaked to the fake news media.  Given the number of bad actors within the DOJ and FBI who are subjects of this investigation, you can be sure that if anything in this report was positive for their case, it would have already appeared in the aforementioned house organs for the Deep State.

This report is not going to be everything you want it to be – reports of investigations like this never are.  But it’s obviously not everything the Deep State wants it to be either, because if it was we’d already know about it.

Remember the old proverb:  “The wheels of justice turn slowly, but they grind exceedingly fine.”

Just another day in the unraveling deep state America.

That is all.

That “Blue Wave” May Be About to Become a “Red Flood”

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Irrelevant.  Americans today need to know what too much #WINNING does to them. – The National Centers for Environmental Information (there’s your all-time politically correct name) issued a report on Monday that says that watching too much bad news can be hazardous to one’s health.  So now you know why all of your Democrat friends are feeling so bad these days.

Where were these guys when Obama and Kerry were surrendering to Iran’s Mullahs? – Senate Democrats, feeling a sudden need to pretend to care about U.S. national security – something that historically only happens when a Republican president is about to achieve a major foreign policy victory for the country – issued their list of “demands” for what President Trump must include in any treaty with North Korea that will need to be ratified in the Senate.

These demands include the following:

  1. The deal must include the dismantlement and removal of all nuclear, chemical, and biological weapons from North Korea.
  2. The U.S. must ensure a “complete and verifiable denuclearization of North Korea,” removing all items related to nuclear-weapons production to prevent the country from reversing course.
  3. North Korea must end its ballistic-missile program as well.
  4. North Korea must comply with “anywhere, anytime” inspections to ensure it is not cheating on the deal, and sanctions must be immediately restored if it does cheat.
  5. The deal must be permanent.

If it strikes you that this list of “demands” reads like the list of goals the Trump Administration has been talking about in advance of the June 12 summit meeting in Singapore, that’s because they basically are one and the same.

Look, the Democrats are beginning to panic about their prospects in November’s mid-term elections.  Bereft of any bright policy ideas of their own which might attract new voters, they are now going about the process of attempting to co-opt conservative positions on issues, starting with the negotiations with North Korea.  This is what Bill Clinton taught them to do in 1996, and it’s what they’ve tried in every election cycle since that time.

Just a couple of months ago they and their fake news media agents were convinced that they were headed towards a grand victory, a “Blue Wave” that would see them win a majority in the U.S. House of Representatives, maybe the Senate as well, and make sweeping gains in state governorships and legislative houses all over the country.

But what had once been as much as an 18-point lead in congressional generic preference polling has now essentially disappeared as the Trump tax cuts have kicked the economy into high gear and good news for America continues to pour in from around the world.  Americans are becoming optimistic about the future again – one recent “right direction/wrong direction” shows the “right direction” answer coming in at its highest level in many years – and that is never a positive sign for the eternally depressed and negative Democrats, who rely on human misery and suffering to build voter support.

Think about it:  Have you seen a single Democrat politician or liberal talking head on your television talk about what a great thing it is that the Black and Hispanic rates of unemployment are at all-time lows?  No, of course you haven’t.  Democrats don’t want Blacks and Hispanics to have jobs – Democrats want Blacks and Hispanics to be dependent on the government because that’s the best way to ensure they will continue to vote in overwhelming majorities for Democrats.

So, Democrat “leaders” – such as they are – see all this good news taking place, they see Kanye West and other young African American leaders beginning to speak out about this orthodoxy they’ve held in place for half a century, and they have no idea at all what to do about it other than to resort back to the “triangulation” tactic they’ve employed in every election cycle for 22 years.  That’s what this Korea canard is all about, and you’re going to see more of that kind of co-option of GOP positions taking place in the coming weeks.

Because the reality is that, as we sit here today, the overarching national momentum in this election cycle is firmly behind the Republicans now, just as the overarching mood of the public had moved behind Donald Trump’s candidacy at this point in 2016.  That could change between now and November, but it would take some extraordinary paradigm-shifting event to make it happen.

When you see San Fran Nan advocating for additional tax cuts and Chuckie Schumer out in Chicago or Detroit or Baltimore talking about the need to get tough on crime, you’ll know for sure that the once-vaunted “Blue Wave” is about to turn into a “Red Flood.”  This is all very predictable.

About that Bill Clinton interview… – It occurs to me this morning that this NBC interview with Bill Clinton and an extremely uncomfortable James Patterson is a real teaching moment for Millennials.  Because this is the first time in their adult lives that they have seen the real Bill Clinton that we all had to deal with throughout the decade of the ’90s put on display for everyone to see.

There he was in all his sociopathic glory, shifting blame, denying responsibility, angry at being questioned, refusing to apologize and pretending that it is indeed he who is the actual victim here.  Bill’s all about the whole #MeToo movement, only in his mind it’s all about him, not the many women he abused throughout his adult life.  Poor, poor persecuted Bill.  Why, I kept waiting for him to toss out the whole “vast rightwing conspiracy” canard just for fun.

Here’s a hint for all you Millennials who were not really following politics while Bill was chasing 22 year-old interns around the Oval Office:  The most telling line of that entire interview is when he says, when asked about his Monica Lewinsky scandal, “Nobody believes I got out of that for free. I left the White House $16 million in debt.”

See, with the Clintons, it was always all about the money.  Bill and Hillary Clinton are America’s Greatest Grifters.  Everything they did, every office they sought was all about what was in it for them.  Their having debt at the end of Bill’s terms in office – fact-checkers show it wasn’t really even close to the number Billy boy tossed out – was in their minds justification for having Hillary turn her gig as Obama’s Secretary of State into a classic mob influence racket in which she was only too happy to sell U.S. foreign policy decisions to the highest bidders.

The Clintons – both of them – were always just in it for the money.  They were always looking for their next scam.  For Hillary, being elected President was going to be the most glorious scam of all.

Be happy she didn’t make it there.

Just another day in Panicking Democrats America.

That is all.

Twerking FBI Agents, Fired Korean Generals and Another Fake News Media-Invented Controversy. *Yawn*

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

That time when Bill Clinton accidentally stumbled into the truth. – Lifetime woman abuser (that has nothing to do with this story, but it should be repeated every time his name is mentioned) Bill Clinton told an interviewer over the weekend that – gasp! – the  news media gave favorable treatment to Barack Hussein Obama.  Go figure.  Who knew?

“They liked him. And they liked having the first African American president and he was a good president I think,” Clinton said about the media.  Uh-ooooohhhhhhh.  He went ‘there’, the place no one is ever supposed to go in telling the actual truth about the media’s treatment of Obama, and it naturally caused the extremely predictable outrage among social justice warriors on social media.  So tiresome.

Clinton also told the same interviewer that “I couldn’t be elected anything now ’cause I just don’t like embarrassing people,” after being asked what would happen if he ran in 2020.  Funny, he never had any problem at all embarrassing Paula Jones or Monica Lewinsky or Kathleen Willey or Juanita Broaddrick or Sandra James or Christy Zercher or…ok, enough.

Go away, Bill.  Just.  go.  away.

Hey, the FBI is just one grand dumpster fire at this point, huh? – An off-duty FBI agent was twerking on a Denver dance floor Saturday night.  What could possibly go wrong, you ask?

Well, let me tell you.  The guy – who has yet to be publicly identified so we call all shame him out of his job – took time away from twerking long enough to do an awkward back flip, during the course of which his service handgun very predictably fell from its holster onto the floor.  Not that big a deal, you say, right?  Could happen to anybody who feels the need to carry their favorite pistol with them when they go out for a night of shaking their booty.

But wait, this story gets worse.  Much, much worse.

This studly, twerking FBI agent with a bad case of Saturday Night Fever naturally panics (because apparently that’s what they train FBI agents to do these days) and scrambles to grab his gun.  In the process of doing that, he pulls the damn trigger and because he hadn’t bothered to set the damn safety, it goes off, hitting a bystander in the leg.

So, you’re a well-trained FBI agent who has just accidentally shot a bystander in the leg with your service gun while out for a night of imitating Mylie Cyrus – what do you do?  Well, this guy, no doubt implementing the exact training he personally learned from ex-FBI Director and current Teenage Drama Queen James Comey, calmly re-holstered his pistol and just walked away, leaving others to call for an ambulance and get the victim to the hospital.  After all, he’s probably too busy fixing some election there in Colorado.

This is your FBI in action, folks.  I swear I don’t make this stuff up.  Who could?

Chances for a Korea de-nuke deal just got better.  Much, much better. – Don’t expect the fake news media to put much emphasis on this very key story since it’s great news for America and thus terrible news for Democrats, but Reuters reports that, according to senior U.S. officials, the three top generals in the North Korean armed forces were replaced over the weekend.

So, why is this important?  Read this from the Japanese Yonhap News Agency, from a report released later on Sunday:

“The North appears to have brought in new figures amid the changes in inter-Korean relations and the situation on the Korean Peninsula as the previous officials lacked flexibility in thinking.”

The phrase “lacked flexibility in thinking” means the three guys who were replaced were opposed to the Crazy Little Fat Guy doing any deal with the U.S. and South Korea to de-nuclearize the Korean Peninsula.  These three firings come a few weeks after Army Gen. Kim Su-gil’s replacement of Kim Jong-gak as director of the General Political Bureau of the Korean People’s Army.  Taken all together, they most likely give Kim Jong Un the flexibility he needs to move forward on a deal because he no longer has to worry about a military coup taking place while he’s out of the country.  Funny how that works.

Democrats and their fake news agents will do their best to ignore this crucial development or spin it into something negative.  Of course, that’s been their strategy with the booming economy and employment numbers too, and we see how well that’s all working out for them.  It’s just a joy to watch them stumble and bumble around on this stuff.

Your fake news media in action! – Ask leading question, get answer you wanted to the leading question, spin into negative story about Trump.  Wash, rinse and repeat.  Whenever there’s a semi-slow news day, or a day in which the news for Trump just shows too much WINNING to report, this is the formula the fake news media uses to generate some new controversy.

So it went with Rudy Giuliani Sunday on ABC’s This Week With George Stephanopoulous, the former Clinton toady who pretends to be a news guy now.  When Georgie the Toady asked Giuliani if the President has the power to pardon himself, Rudy gave the correct answer:  Yes.  See, Rudy’s actually read the Constitution, which very clearly gives any sitting president the power to pardon anyone he wants.

Giuliani went on to say that President Trump has never and would never even consider doing any such thing, but the fake news media had its fake controversy for the day, a controversy that enabled all the fake reporters, fake editors and fake talking heads to change the subject from the booming economy and very encouraging developments on the North Korea front.

Thus, we ended up with an entire afternoon of endless speculation in the fake news media about whether a President who has committed no crimes and has not even been accused of committing any crimes and who his lawyer says has never even entertained the idea is actually planning to pardon himself.

You want to know why the formerly semi-noble profession of journalism is almost dead in this country?  This is just one of about 10,000 reasons, but it’s one of the biggest.

Just another day in Fake News Media America.

That is all.
