Clapper Initiates Operation CYA at a Surprising Target

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

For those who missed it – I compiled one of my rare Evening Campaign Updates last night, and it’s worth checking out.

It’s still the 9th Circuit, folks, and it always will be. – Twitter and cable news came all abuzz Tuesday afternoon when reports began circulating that the notoriously anti-constitutional 9th Circuit Court of Appeals had issued a decision overruling a California ban on certain rifle magazines.  Conservatives were all over Twitter and Facebook proclaiming a major victory, and that the 9th Circuit had finally seen the light!

Well, no, not exactly.  This decision was issued by a 3-judge panel subset of the Circuit Court’s huge membership, and California now has the right – which it will certainly exercise – to request the case to be heard en banc, i.e., by the Court’s full leftist-friendly membership.  The judges for these 3-judge panels are picked at random, and this particular panel just happened to draw 2 of the rare 9th Circuit judges who have actually read the 2nd Amendment.

So this decision will be reversed soon, and the 9th Circuit will regain its shoddy reputation after experiencing a rare moment of constitutional clarity.  Too bad.

Fake Indian Senator want heap big wampum. – In case anyone still maintained illusions otherwise, lifelong fraud Senator Elizabeth Warren made her and her fellow Democrats’ money-grabbing intentions crystal clear in a CNBC interview yesterday.  She told the preening fake host John Harwood that Democrats intend to immediately reverse the Trump tax cuts if they gain congressional majorities this November, and suggested the top marginal income tax rate should be raised to “well above 50%.”

Hey, maybe that’s why the very wealthy (how did he become that way on a government salary?) ex-FBI Director and Current Teenage Drama Queen James Comey is having second thoughts about encouraging everyone to vote Democrat this fall.  Go figure.

California values in action! – The Democrat-dominated California state government recently de-criminalized the act of intentionally giving another person AIDS, but the City of Santa Barbara just passed an ordinance mandating jail time for any food service employee caught in the heinous act of….wait for it….oh, you gotta wait for this one…PASSING OUT PLASTIC STRAWS TO CUSTOMERS!  I swear I do not make this stuff up.

The amiable dunce issues a subtle warning. – This is one I forgot to include in yesterday’s Evening Campaign Update, in which I laid out some of the ways in which it feels like the tide is finally turning on the whole Democrat/Media invented Russia Collusion fantasy play.  My bad.

Former Obama Administration Director of National Intelligence James Clapper seems for all appearances like sort of an amiable dunce.  His interviews on TV and dishonest congressional testimonies are often amusing to watch as he fumbles around for words and contorts his very malleable face into all sorts of odd configurations as he seemingly searches for exactly the right way to mislead.

But Clapper is a spy, a longtime intelligence operative, and as such it is important to remember that a lot of that fumbling around and contorting is done for effect.  This is a very clever man who knows how to subtly – or not so subtly – engage in a CYA operation on national television.

Well, ok, it was on CNN, which counts as “national television” these days only in the sense that it seems to be on the public TVs in every airport in America 24 hours a day, but still.  In an interview Monday evening with the terminally boring and petulant Anderson Cooper, Clapper, seeing the walls beginning to close in around him with the release of the documentation for the fraudulent FISA warrants, apparently decided it was time for Operation CYA to engage in earnest.

And engage he did, in the process tossing a very recognizable individual under the proverbial bus:

“If it weren’t for President Obama we might not have done the intelligence community assessment that we did that set up a whole sequence of events which are still unfolding today, notably Special Counsel Mueller’s investigation. President Obama is responsible for that. It was he who tasked us to do that intelligence community assessment in the first place.”

Man, this guy doesn’t fool around.  Other, less bold people in his circumstances might have tried sloughing responsibility off onto, say, ex-CIA Director John Brennan or the aforementioned Teen Drama Queen, but not Clapper – Clapper goes right to the main guy, the Capo de Tutti Capi, the Big Kahuna, Barack “The One” Hussein Obama his own self.

In doing so, Clapper perhaps appropriately assumes the posture taken by all those Nazi Generals back in 1945 who told their captors “hey, we were just following orders.”

I’m not sure it’s going to work, but you almost have to admire the chutzpah.

Just another day in the truth will all come out in the end America.

Did the Whole Russia Collusion Fantasy Game Just Change?

The Evening Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Suddenly, starting over this past weekend, it’s beginning to feel like the tide of national events vis a vis the whole Democrat/Media Russia Collusion fantasy play has begun to turn.  So many key things have taken place since late last week that I’ll probably miss some of them, but I’ll give it a try:

Page Trumps Strzok – It all seems to have started with the closed-door deposition testimony by Super-Duper FBI Agent Peter Strzok’s ex-girlfriend, ex-DOJ lawyer Lisa Page, which took place on July 19-20.  According to GOP Rep. Mark Meadows and others who were present, Page was a far more credible witness than  her spawn of Satan ex-boyfriend, and her version of events differed significantly from the line of BS Strzok spewed during his testimony the previous week.  It’s key to note that no one in the media or the Democrat Party is demanding that the transcript of her testimony be made public.

Another Housecleaning at FBI – Also on July 19 came news that no fewer than three senior cyber-security officials at the FBI were announcing their “retirements” on the same day.  “What a coincidence!”, said the fake news media in unison.

The three “retiring” officials are  Scott Smith, Assistant Director over the FBI’s cyber division; David Resch, the executive assistant director of the Criminal, Cyber, Response and Services Branch; and Carl Ghattas, the executive assistant director of the National Security Branch.  Coming as they do in the wake of President Trump’s summit with Vladimir Putin and all the hysteria over supposed Russian threats to meddle in the mid-term elections, it seems highly unlikely these three departures are actually mere coincidence.  It all smells much more like a house-cleaning, similar to the one we saw during December last year, when Strzok, Page and Bruce Ohr were all demoted within days of one another.

FISA Abuse Exposed – Saturday, July 21, the Big Kahuna dropped, as Judicial Watch, having won a battle in federal court, released 412 pages of documents that form the basis for the FISA warrant and its three subsequent renewals that in turn formed the after-the-fact justification for the FBI/DOJ’s spying efforts on the Trump Campaign, Transition and Administration.  The documents were highly redacted – very predictably – but what wasn’t redacted was extremely revealing, proving that the FBI/DOJ anti-Trump cabal relied almost solely on the Fusion GPS fake Trump Dossier as its basis for defrauding the FISA Court and obtaining the warrant.

Trump Tweets – Meanwhile, President Trump himself was very busy on Twitter, and in thinking about the following tweets, it’s key to keep in mind that Trump knows everything that really happened, who did what, and has known all of this most likely since before he took office.  Here are some tweets that really stand out to me in this context:

Mind you, these first two tweets were issued before Judicial Watch dropped the FISA documents.  The key to me is the final sentence of the 2nd tweet:  “Republicans better get smart fast and expose what they are doing!”  The President doesn’t just burp these tweets out for no reason, and that sure seems like foreshadowing to me.

Then, after the Judicial Watch document dump, the President repeated the same theme in another pair of tweets:

“Republicans must get tough now.  An illegal Scam!”  More foreshadowing.

Some in congress are listening – Later on Sunday  morning, House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte appeared on Fox News and made it clear to host Maria Bartiromo that he had heard the President’s message.  In that interview, Chairman Goodlatte “discusses John Brennan, James Comey, and Loretta Lynch being sought for questioning on their actions during the 2016 Presidential Election; as well as compliance responses from Peter Strzok, Rod Rosenstein and Lisa Page.”

An Uproar From The Amen Chorus – Throughout the last week, the cacophony of anti-Trump screeds coming from the Obama loyalist Amen Chorus has grown increasingly shrill.  This includes not just former officials in the Obama Administration, but their media collaborators as well.  With the Page testimony not going as they had hoped and the release of the FISA fraud documents, they all can now clearly see the walls beginning to close in.  The lashing out is a sign of desperation.

The desperation became even more clear on Monday, July 23, when Sarah Huckabee Sanders’ announcement that President Trump was considering revoking the security clearances of Brennan, Comey, Clapper, Rice, Hayden and McCabe elicited an audible gasp from the assembled preening peacocks-and-hens of the White House press corps.  Speaker Paul Ryan, himself an incurable creature of the DC Swamp, laughed the President’s threat off as a “trolling” exercise, but none of the six targets and their supporters in the fake news media were laughing at what was a clear signal from the White House that the game is about to change.

Hey, Mr. Speaker, if you want an example of a Trump Troll, here’s a hilarious (and true) one from earlier today:

 

Hey, Somebody Woke Up Sessions! – Finally, while the President’s “Republicans must get tough now” message was in part meant for Republicans in congress like Goodlatte, it also was likely a signal to Attorney General Jeff Sessions that it’s time to end his long seeming hibernation from the public eye.  And just like that, there was Sessions earlier today, addressing a high school leadership conference in Washington, DC, joining in with the chant of “lock her up, lock her up!” coming from the crowd.

Now, that could just be a coincidence, but have you ever, in the 17 months since he took office, seen AG Sessions participate in that kind of targeting at the Pantsuit Princess?  No?  Neither have I.

Look, all of the stuff I’ve laid out here could be just a grand, if highly unlikely, coincidence of events all pointing in the same direction.  But I don’t believe in coincidences and neither should you.

This sure feels like a turning to me.  The next few weeks could be a ton of fun.

That is all.

Wait, Comey, Clapper and Brennan Still Have Security Clearances?

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Yeah, “judgment free” this, buddy. – A man was arrested at a Planet Fitness on Monday when other customers complained that he was working out in the nude, seldom a good idea at a public facility.  When the cops came to run him off to the local pokey, he told them that he thought he was in a “judgment free” zone.  So, obviously a Democrat.  I swear I don’t make this stuff up.  Who could?

You’re really not very good at this whole Twitter thing, Jim. – Ex-FBI Director and current Teenage Drama Queen James Comey issued the following tweet on Monday:

For the record, this goofy tweet comes less than two days after President Trump, in a nationally-televised interview, criticized Putin about all sorts of things and said if Putin continues meddling in U.S. elections he would become the Russian President’s “worst enemy.”  That interview came just days after several other nationally televised interviews in which President Trump repeatedly criticized Putin.  Those interviews come weeks and months after President Trump implemented a long series of the toughest sanctions the U.S. has targeted against Russia in decades, far tougher than anything Barack Obama ever dreamed of doing.

Mr. Comey should really take a different direction with his shameless attention-seeking exercises.  This whole Twitter thing is obviously not among his core competencies.

Speaking of ex-Obama officials shamelessly seeking attention for profit, White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders informed the collection of creeps and derelicts we call the White House press corps that President Trump is, at the urging of Senator Rand Paul, looking into the revocation of the security clearances for Comey, John Brennan, James Clapper, Michael Hayden, Susan Rice and Andrew McCabe.  Sanders cited concerns that these sleazeballs were monetizing their security access and improperly sharing classified information with the media, which is undeniably true of all of them.

One reporter told his Twitter followers that there was an audible gasp from the fake reporters in the briefing room when Sanders made her announcement.  Yes, one can only imagine the level of panic that immediately began to set in among this group of lazy, shiftless gas bags who have spent the last two years just cutting and pasting whatever this collection of Obama loyalist seditionists have fed them into their rote articles.  Now suddenly, they face the prospect of having to actually engage in real journalistic pursuits for their information, rather than just being sock puppets.  Life is hard, folks.

Some of the reactions were truly priceless.   James Clapper told an interviewer on CNN, where he monetizes his security clearance 7 days a week, that “I don’t know what to say,” he added. “I think this is just a very, very petty — a petty thing to do. And that’s about all I’ll say about it.”  Yes, petty, sort of like if he went on MSNBC or CNN and trashed your reputation on live television 5 times a week, huh?

Jennifer Rubin, a pathetic hack who serves as one of the Washington Post’s kennel of fake “conservative” writers, said this in a tweet:

So, this nitwit is so unalterably vacuous that she actually believes that there is some sort of constitutional right for a person to maintain a national security clearance.  Ok, where do I go to get mine?  Holy cow.

Interestingly, Brennan, who has been so hyper-vocal and outrageously over-the-top in his criticisms of President Trump – even to the point of accusing him of committing treason in his meeting with Vladimir Putin last week – has so far remained silent on the matter.  In fact, that July 16 tweet accusing a sitting U.S. President of treasonous acts is the last tweet this particular seditionist has issued.  Since then, it’s been radio silence on the Brennan Twitter account.  We also haven’t seen him raise his ugly mug on television since that outburst.  Maybe someone convinced him to get back on his meds.

Back to the question at hand, what possible legitimate purpose does it serve for any of these people to still have security clearances to begin with? It’s unimaginable that this step has not already been taken, given the unending efforts by this pack of disloyal seditionists to bring down the Trump presidency.

Some buffoon talking heads are arguing that it’s important for high-ranking ex-intelligence officials to retain their security clearances in case the current administration needs their advice.  Wait, what?  Are we really to think that President Trump is going to call Brennan or Comey up in the midst of some international crisis and ask for their advice?  Clapper?  The insipid Susan Rice?   These people have literally nothing useful to offer this administration.

The only advice Susan Rice could offer anyone is how to bald-face lie about an international incident on five news shows on the same Sunday morning.  Please.  Plus, Clapper, Comey and Brennan have all blatantly perjured themselves in congressional testimony in their ongoing efforts to harm the current administration – that’s just a matter of clear public record at this point.

There’s an old lawyer joke that goes something like this:

What do you call 20 lawyers with cement blocks chained to their ankles at the bottom of the Pacific Ocean?

Answer:  A good start.

Same answer here.  Do it, Mr. President.  Just do it.  And please, add Peter Strzok to the list.

Just another day in how does John Brennan still have a security clearance America.

That is all.

Trey Gowdy and Adam Schiff Walk Into a Bar…

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

This is not working out the way the Democrat/Media Axis of Propaganda wanted.  Not at all. – The new NBC/Wall Street Journal poll released Sunday pegs President Trump’s job approval rating at 45%.  Why is that significant?  Because it is the highest approval level this particular fake media outlet poll has registered for Mr. Trump since he took office, and it comes after a week of the most focused, intense hit job led by the fake news media against any president in U.S. history.  Just one more reason why the Democrats stopped with their “Trump committed treason!!!!!” nonsense starting on Friday and went back to talking about hookers and playmates.

Speaking of things that aren’t polling well for the Democrats, how about that whole socialism thing, huh? – An ever-dwindling group of “centrist” Democrats who call themselves the Third Way held their annual meeting in Columbus, OH, on Thursday and Friday to try to come up with some sort of coherent agenda for the 2018 midterm elections.  Even though they all agreed that their party’s ongoing lurch to the far, far, far left is a bad thing, they very predictably failed in their quest.  You don’t have to believe me – just read these quotes from the Miami Herald’s coverage of the event:

“Let’s be clear,” Cowan said. “80s supply-sidism, 90s centrism and 60s socialism will not cut it for the era we’re in. We need something new and different.”

Many of those in attendance were careful not to directly criticize Ocasio-Cortez, saying they welcomed the new energy she was bringing into the party. But they also made clear that they thought her style of politics would be a difficult sell outside of her New York City congressional district, where the party must try to win over more conservative voters.

“A small but vocal subgroup that is unhinged from evidence will be wrong in the long run, regardless of how loud they are,” said Iowa state Sen. Jeff Danielson, in an interview.

But he’s not sure other members of his party will listen to his advice.

“We don’t know what we want,” he said. “We haven’t found our sea legs as a party.”

You don’t say…

Ok, so Good Trey Gowdy got out of bed on Sunday morning, and awesomeness ensued. – One never knows what to expect out of South Carolina Congressman Trey Gowdy.  On any given day he appears to alternate between a “Good” version of himself who is a blunt, plain-spoken bulldog of a truth-seeker, and a “Bad” version of himself who is an almost insufferable apologist for even the worst actors at the FBI and DOJ, making many wonder if he is actually seeking a job over there at DOJ when he leaves his congressional seat at the end of the year.  Which honestly wouldn’t be a bad thing if only Good Trey Gowdy showed up for work every day.

On Sunday, Good Trey Gowdy got out of bed, went on Fox News Sunday, and had this to say:

“I have not seen one scintilla of evidence that this president colluded, conspired, collaborated, with Russia. And neither has anyone else, or you can rest assured, Adam Schiff would have leaked it,” Gowdy said. “That is why they have moved on from collusion on to obstruction of justice, which is now their current preoccupation.”

Even in today’s toxic, hyper-partisan atmosphere in the halls of congress, it is a rare thing indeed to see one congressman call out another for what is basically the commission of a crime on national television.   Somewhere, Cong. Schiff’s bugeyes were bugging out even more than usual when he saw that quote.  The sad thing is that everyone knows that what Gowdy said is the unvarnished truth, and that Schiff will get away with what he’s already done and just keep on leaking with impunity because he’s a member of congress.

But Gowdy wasn’t done yet, oh no.  Later in the same interview, he also managed to take shots at the Commie and Dianne Feinstein:

“BAIER: So, Trump supporters look at that, former CIA Director John Brennan, former FBI Director James Comey, what he said, what they’ve said. And they say they understand why the president feels a little inquisitive about where things are going.

GOWDY: Yes, Bret, you don’t even have to be a Trump supporter to be mindful of the fact that John Brennan thinks he’s guilty of a crime for which he can be hanged, that John Brennan thinks he should be in the dustbin of history, that Jim Comey thinks impeachment is too good of a remedy and Jim Comey now thinks that everyone should vote Democrat so Bernie Sanders will be the head of the budget committee and Dianne Feinstein will be the head of intel.

I mean, these are the people that were supposed to be dispassionately, objectively investigating a fact pattern and they have much animus against Donald Trump as anything I have seen in my eight years in politics.”

Good stuff.  Too bad Good Trey Gowdy doesn’t get out of bed every morning.  If he did, we’d be so much further along in this process of bringing the bad actors to justice.

Still, we should enjoy Good Trey Gowdy whenever he does show up, because he’s right on point, and entertaining as hell.

Just another day in why can’t Good Trey Gowdy show up every day America.

That is all.

Judicial Watch Drops a FISA Abuse Bomb

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Hey, who let Hillary out of the ICU? – The Pantsuit Princess made another of her incessant speaking gigs in New York City, and wasn’t wearing a pantsuit!  Instead, the Grasping Grifter was dressed in what for all the world looks like a Hospital gown:

Yikes.  Someone needs to perform an intervention here.

Don’t look now, but the narrative is changing, and the media won’t like it. – Tom Fitton and his folks at Judicial Watch (JW) performed a major public service yesterday, a service for which they will be excoriated by the entire Democrat Party and its propaganda wing in the fake news media.  That’s because Fitton and JW just interfered with their “Trump Russia” collusion narrative, and the Axis of Propaganda can’t stand to have its narrative messed with.

JW released 412 pages of documentation supporting the sham FISA warrant the DOJ/FBI anti-Trump cabal obtained in 2016, a warrant that gave a sort of legal standing to its already-existing spying operation on the Trump campaign.  The same documentation was used three more times to have the warrant renewed every three months as the anti-Trump cabal extended its operations to spying on the Trump Transition team and ultimately into the Trump Administration itself.

So, what was the basis for this spying warrant?  As the Campaign Update reported way back in December, pretty much nothing but the fake Trump Dossier that was compiled by British spy Christopher Steele, coordinating with Russian spies, and being paid by the Clinton Campaign and the Democrat National Committee (DNC).  As ex-FBI Director and current teenage Drama Queen James Comey testified way back in early 2017, without the Trump Dossier there would never have been a FISA warrant.

As Fitton himself noted, “These documents are heavily redacted but seem to confirm the FBI and DOJ misled the courts in withholding the material information that Hillary Clinton’s campaign and the DNC were behind the “intelligence” used to persuade the courts to approve the FISA warrants that targeted the Trump team. Given this corruption, President Trump should intervene and declassify the heavily redacted material.”

Yes, the President should do that at some point but probably won’t do so now for two reasons:  1) although it’s very likely that most of the redactions were done to protect FBI personnel from embarrassment or prosecution, some could be there to legitimately protect sources and U.S. intelligence personnel in other countries, and 2) because DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz’s own investigation into the FISA abuse scandal is still ongoing.  We shouldn’t expect any declassification by President Trump until Horowitz’s own report has been issued.

But the un-redacted bits and pieces of the 412 pages are a goldmine of information:

First, as has been noted for months, the warrant application ostensibly targets independent businessman Carter Page, who has done business in Russia for many years and advised the Trump Campaign for several weeks during 2016.  Two years after this initial FISA application, no charges of any kind have been brought against Mr. Page, although the scurrilous fake news media has repeatedly dragged his name through the mud.

This is because there never was any intention of bringing any case against Page, who has done nothing wrong.  His was simply a convenient name to cut and past into an application for a warrant that was really designed to provide after-the-fact justification for a spying operation that had begun months earlier.

Second, the Cabal never at any point notifies the Court that the fake Dossier was bought and paid for by the Clinton Campaign and the DNC, despite their clear foreknowledge of that fact.  They committed an intentional fraud on the court.

Third, The DOJ/FBI cabal attempted to launder the fake Trump Dossier to make it appear as if it was legitimate intelligence that had originated in the U.S. intelligence community.  As reporter Paul Sperry noted on Twitter, “FBI’s FISA warrant actually cites as “evidence” to spy on Carter Page/Trump campaign “Senate Minority Leader” Harry Reid’s 2016 letter to Comey citing information he got from John Brennan…”  The problem with that, of course, is that Brennan who got his information from … wait for it … the fake Trump Dossier!

The documentation is filled with multiple other efforts by the Cabal to mislead the Court by portraying information obtained directly from the fake Dossier as actual intelligence dug up by U.S. intel agencies and the FBI.  Again, an outright fraud on the Court.

Fourth, The Cabal also attempted to mislead the Court by portraying Steele as a legitimate intelligence resource in this semi-redacted passage:

“Source #1” is Christopher Steele.  A few weeks after the first application was filed, the FBI fired this flawless, upstanding, totally-believable “source” it admits it had been paying because Steele leaked the fake Dossier to the execrable David Corn, a longtime fake reporter for Mother Jones magazine.

Fifth, those with good memories will remember that both Comey and ex-Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe testified to congress that Steele’s faked-up Dossier was a key piece of the justification for the FISA application.  This turns out to have been a massive understatment.

As Sperry further notes, Steele – “Source #1” – is not just a key source of information in these documents, he is in fact the ONLY source:  “In all the FISA apps filed to spy on Trump advisor Page there is no evidentiary source listed other than “Source #1” — and “Source #1″ is Christopher Steele. (There is no Source #2 or Source #3, etc. Just a single source — Source #1.)”

Thus, McCabe’s statement that “without the Trump Dossier there would be no FISA warrant” turns out to be literally true given that it apparently forms the entire supporting basis for the application.

On his Twitter feed this morning, President Trump responded as follows:

An illegal scam indeed.  It’s important to note here that President Trump has known all of this and so much more for months now – none of this is any surprise to him at all.  In fact he has most likely known about it all since even before he took office.

People are all over social media this morning urging Mr. Trump to declassify everything now.  But he has bided his time this long, allowing people like Comey, McCabe, Strzok, Clapper and Brennan to figuratively hang themselves with their deranged public statements and congressional testimonies.  He’s following a well-planned process and isn’t going to interrupt that process now.

The next step in that process will be the release of the Horowitz report on FISA abuse, which will probably take place in August, less than three months before the mid-term elections.  After that, hell is coming for these people.

Just another day in trust the process America.

That is all.

Liberals Who Broke Our Society Decry Our Broken Society. *sigh*

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Turns out liberals don’t like living by the new rules they’ve created.  Go figure. – After “Guardians of the Galaxy” Director James Gunn got dumped by Disney when it was revealed that he had issued a bunch of tweets that were at least seemingly pro-pedophilia when he first got onto Twitter 7-8 years ago, liberals all over social media wailed in protest, decrying the action.

Gunn himself claimed the tweets were all a “joke”, sort of like Roseanne Barr claimed her single seemingly racist tweet targeting Valerie Jarrett was a “mistake” about Jarrett’s country of birth.  You can believe both of them – I see no reason not to, really – but the truth no longer matters under the rules that lunatic liberals have created in our PC society.  There is no presumption of innocence anymore in the gang-dominated social media world, and though the left and the fake news media are in the early stages of attempting to “normalize” pedophilia (we see you, Netflix) in our society, they haven’t gotten there quite yet.

Thus, while a fake news host like MSNBC’s Joy Reid can survive the revelation that she is a homophobic bigot as long as her bosses stick to the fiction that she’s “a different person now”, a celebrity like Gunn can’t survive making “jokes” that seem to promote pedophilia.  Those are the rules that were invented by the lunatic left, and suddenly the lunatic left doesn’t like one of their own having to live under them.

One lefty, writing at Yahoo.com, complained thusly:  “It’s unclear what impact Gunn’s firing is going to have on Guardians of the Galaxy vol. 3 but it is clear that American society is broken and that the internet is a fetid cancer.”

Well, yes, and we all have your ideological ilk to thank for that sad reality.  Deal with it.

Speaking of our broken society, when exactly was it that the art of comedy died? – Detestable, unfunny comic Michelle Wolf issued what she somewhat questionably calls a “parody” video, in which she compares ICE to ISIS (They both start with an “I”, so they’re totally comparable, get it?  This is me, slapping my forehead.).

But hey, Michelle Wolf is exactly as funny as Whoopi Goldberg, so she’s got that going for her.

Somewhere, President Donald Trump is looking at this video and thinking “See, stuff like this is why I won.”

The Commies come to the heartland.  Hilarity ensues.  This is real comic gold. – Old Bolshevik Bernie Sanders and his 28 year-old kindred spirit, Democrat congressional nominee Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez made a trip out to Kansas to hold a rally in front of some facility packed with people who were probably paid to be there.  They were spreading their commie message of ‘free stuff for everybody until we run out of other people’s money’, i.e., “Socialism,” and also trying to prop up some fellow traveler named Brent Welder’s campaign for congress.

At one point Ms. Cortez, who has opened her mouth and proved she’s an idiot about 27 times over the few weeks since her own stunning primary win, did it again by urging the crowd to “turn this district Red!!!!”

Of course, red is the color the fake news media chooses to use to represent the Republicans, not the Democrats, on its political maps.  Oops.

But hey, give Cortez a break, because it was an honest mistake.  Commies have always been extremely fond of the color red:

Well, I nailed it again. – In yesterday’s Campaign Update, I told you the Democrat/Media axis of propaganda was about to change the subject again, drumming up some new scandal to keep their lunatic, ignorant voter base riled up.  The hysteria over Helsinki wasn’t working for them in the polls, so they would need something else to go hysterical about.

Presto change-o, by mid-afternoon, all the talking heads at CNN and MSNBC were once again talking about hookers and playmates thanks to leaks from the office of Special Counsel Robert Mueller, who the fake media assures us never leaks.  Can I call ’em, or what?

*sigh*

Democrat Hysteria Over Helsinki Has Failed. New Hysteria Coming Soon.

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Presiding over the fakest news operation on earth turns out to be a high-stress gig. – CNN President Jeff Zucker is taking time off to have heart surgery.

If you watch The View, you should really reconsider your bad life choices. – The Democrat campaign to bully, harass and assault Trump supporters in public venues has now been extended into the realm of TV talk shows.  Appearing with the cackling shrews on The View on Thursday, Fox News host Judge Jeanine Pirro was harassed and bullied by the execrable Whoopi Goldberg while on air, and then assaulted by Goldberg backstage during a commercial break.  You can read all about it here.

Because when you can’t indict anybody real, you indict ham sandwiches.  It’s the DOJ way. – Our oily Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, speaking at the Aspen Institute’s annual gathering of globalist freaks Thursday, defended his and Robert Mueller’s practice of indicting Russian nationals as a way to pretend they’re actually making progress on their Democrat/media invented “Russia Collusion” fantasy.

Ignoring the fact that Mueller’s team was completely unprepared to make even a semblance of a case when one of the indicted Russian entities actually showed up voluntarily for trial back in May, Rosenstein pretended this practice is somehow crucial to our rule of law or something:  “Exposing schemes to the public is an important way to neutralize them,” he said. “The American people have a right to know if foreign governments are targeting them with propaganda.”

That much is true.  But the American people also have a right to know why this special counsel exists in the first place, documents for which Rosenstein has now stonewalled in producing for more than a year now, and whether that special counsel and his band of Clinton/Obama hacks are abusing our legal system, as the judges presiding over the cases of Michael Flynn and the Russian firm Concord Management appear to believe.

But Mueller’s corruption of the process isn’t limited to indicting ham sandwiches – far from it.  Now, he’s in the process of attempting to protect several Clinton/Obama cronies from prosecution by asking a judge to grant them “use” immunity in the case against Paul Manafort.  Fox News host Tucker Carlson confirmed on his program last night that one of those cronies is …wait for it…Tony Podesta, brother of Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta.

Here we should remember that the Mueller case against Manafort involves alleged crimes that supposedly took place long before Donald Trump announced his candidacy in 2015.  Tony Podesta and Manafort worked together for some Ukrainian clients way back in 2012, when some of the alleged crimes supposedly happened.

Thus, Mueller’s thought process here is that if you worked for 60-odd days for Donald Trump in 2016, you get prosecuted, but if you’re a crony of anyone named Clinton or Obama, you get use immunity.

Don’t believe me?  Another name rumored to be on Mueller’s immunity list is…wait for it…John Podesta.

If you were still laboring under the illusion that our country doesn’t have a two-tiered justice system, stop it.  Now.

This is not working out the way the Democrat/Media Axis of Propaganda wanted.  Not at all. – If you’re depressed by the heinously biased coverage of the Trump meeting with Vladimir Putin in Helsinki, don’t be.  A series of new polls taken after Monday’s summit that were issued yesterday have some highly-disappointing results for liberals trying to use the meeting as a hammer against the President of the United States:

  • The new Economist/YouGov poll has Trump’s approval post-Putin Summit at 44%. The last YouGov poll released last week had him at…wait for it….43%.
  • Thursday’s daily Rasmussen Tracking survey had President Trump’s approval rating at 45%, exactly where it was on Sunday, the day before the Helsinki meeting.
  • The new Reuters/Ipsos poll has the President’s approval at 42%.  Last week’s poll from this group had it at 41%
  • A new Gallup poll asked registered voters to pick the “most important problem” facing America today from a list on which “Situation with Russia” was prominently included.  The results left Gallup stunned:  “The percentage of Americans saying ‘Situation with Russia’ is the most important problem is literally too small to represent with a number.”
  • A new Survey Monkey poll has President Trump’s approval rating sitting at 22% among registered Black voters, and 38% among registered Hispanic voters.  I don’t believe I’ve ever seen any GOP POTUS with that high a rating among Blacks, and only GW Bush rivaled that rating among Hispanics.

To be clear: If Donald Trump were to win as much as even 15% of the Black vote and 30% of the Hispanic vote in 2020, he’d win 45 states and kill the Democrat Party even deader than it already is for a generation.

So if you’ve been wondering why, starting early on Thursday, Democrats and their coordinating media agents began to slowly walk back all of their “Trump committed TREASON!!!!!” hysteria, this is why.  The Democrats never believed it was true, they thought it would poll well, it isn’t polling well, so they’re dropping it.

Expect the Axis of Propaganda to either go back to their “But the Babies!!!!!!” border hysteria, dig up a new porn star to obsess about, or invent something entirely new to keep their irrational, ignorant voter base whipped up with starting today.  Because this is all they got, and it’s only going to get worse.

Just another day in Trump Derangement Syndrome America.

That is all.

Actual Vote: Just 10% of Democrats Support Our Law Enforcement Officials

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Today’s news from California.  Oh, my. – A scheme to infest the U.S. Congress with an additional four nitwit senators from California by splitting the state into three parts was slapped down by the California Supreme Court on Wednesday:

The court said in an en banc decision Wednesday that “significant questions have been raised regarding the proposition’s validity” and that “the potential harm in permitting the measure to remain on the ballot outweighs the potential harm in delaying the proposition to a future election.”

So, the Republic is safe for now, though the insidious proposal will almost certainly come up again in 2 years, and 2 years after that, and 2 years after that…

Meanwhile, just in case some of you agree with former FBI Director and current teenage drama queen James Comey that we can trust the Democrat Party to protect our nation, the Democrats in San Francisco began handing out voter registration cards to illegal immigrants on Monday.  City officials claim that this is just to allow parents who have kids in the public school to vote in school elections, but no one really believes that.  No word yet on whether California Democrats will send activists over to Tehran and start registering the Mullahs, too, but it seems just a matter of time.

Also in San Francisco, in case you missed it late last week, new Mayor London Breed (yes, that’s her name) told the media that her city is full of, well, poop.  I swear I don’t make this stuff up – who could?

“I will say there is more feces on the sidewalks than I’ve ever seen growing up here,” Breed said.  “That is a huge problem and we are not just talking about from dogs — we’re talking about from humans.”

Oh, that.

The Mayor’s solution to the problem?  You can’t make that up, either:  She proposes to “educate” the city’s massive and growing population of homeless people to “clean up after themselves.”

Somehow, I don’t think this is going to end well.

Here’s an idea:  How about we replace that whole “3 state” idea with that “CalExit” ballot measure that would allow Californians to vote to secede, and put it on a fast track?  Our country would be much safer – and far less poopy – if we got that one done.

Your Democrats in Action! Part I – With their whole “A Better Deal” slogan having come up a crapper (sorry, I still have California on my mind) with the voters, House Democrats on Wednesday unveiled a new, improved and highly poll-tested tag for their mid-term election campaigns:  “For The People.”

Yeah!  All right!  Man, is that inspiring, or what?

Wait, though.  For ‘which’ people?  For the illegal immigrants in San Francisco?  Those people?  For the MS-13 gang members, in who San Fran Nan Pelosi sees “the spark of divinity”?  Those people?  For the felons whose voting rights Democrats are working to restore all over the country, because they know most of them will vote Democrat?  Those people?  Which people?

I can’t help wondering if any member of the House Democrat Caucus thought through the implications of the fact that the most logical abbreviation of their new, inspiring slogan happens to be “F the People,” which, of course, is how Democrats feel about all of us actual non-felon American citizens and anyone living out here in Flyover Country.

Probably not.  That’s why they’re Democrats.

Your Democrats in Action!  Part II –  As a part of their recent massive expression of hysterical outrage and virtue signaling over the fake border “crisis”, several congressional Democrats co-sponsored a bill that would abolish ICE, the federal Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency, even though ICE has literally nothing to do with the manner in which illegal aliens are housed in border detention facilities.

Seeing an opportunity to make a political point, House GOP leaders first decided to bring the Democrat bill quickly to the floor for a vote, so every Democrat would have to go on record as either supporting or not supporting the irrational, illiterate desires of their vapid anti-American voter base.  Naturally, the Democrat sponsors of the legislation panicked and pulled their proposal.

So the GOP leaders came with a proposal of their own yesterday, a simple resolution of support for the “officers and personnel who carry out the important mission of the United States Immigration and Customs Enforcement.”  A no-brainer for any patriotic American who actually supports our law enforcement officials, right?  Right.

Not exactly, since just 18 Democrats voted in favor of this resolution, roughly 10% of the total Democrat members of the House, with 13 actually voting against it.  At least those 13 had the guts to vote how they really feel about it.  Another 133 Democrats simply voted “present”, the most cowardly act any member of congress can take on any piece of legislation.

And, as so often happens, President Trump tweeted on this very subject as I was typing this piece:

Spooky how he does that, huh?

So, to be clear, just 10% of Democrats in the U.S. House of Representatives, when it comes down to actually casting a vote – the clearest way for any policymaker to express his or her true views – support our federal law enforcement officials.  Put that in your pocket to be whipped out next time some social justice warrior accuses you of treason for criticizing the outright seditionists who remain in the FBI.

Just another day in Democrats hate law enforcement America.

That is all.

The Democrats and the Media Want War With Russia. Why?

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

When I saw this headline, I assumed it had to be about Peter Strzok. – Man arrested for contacting ex-girlfriend 200 times per day.

Let me guess – because you’re an idiot and an awful mother? – A British fake journalist named Rebecca Schiller wrote a piece for the UK Guardian titled “Why I took my 8 year-old daughter on an anti-Trump protest.”  Good grief.

Tired of all this Winning yet? – A few minutes ago, the President tweeted the following:

Four percent economic growth.  Four percent unemployment.  ISIS is about 98 percent dead.  The price of gasoline is going down because the President leaned on the Saudis to put more crude oil on the open market.  The Crazy Little Fat Guy in North Korea has been neutralized.  The U.S. is now back on a path towards a productive relationship with Russia.  The Supreme Court will soon have a working majority that will consistently respect the U.S. Constitution for the first time in two generations.

All this and so much more has been achieved in just 20 months, and it is driving the Democrat/fake news media axis of propaganda utterly mad.

Profiles in how not to do public relations, courtesy of MGM Resorts. – The families of the victims of last October’s Las Vegas massacre have a real reason to be outraged, as they were all sued on Monday by the raving morons who run MGM Resorts, which of course owns the Mandalay Bay Casino Resort from which the Vegas gunman killed or wounded more than 500 people.  I swear I don’t make this stuff up:

“The company, which owns Mandalay Bay and the Route 91 Harvest festival venue, argues that it cannot be held liable for Oct. 1 deaths, injuries or other damages, adding that any claims against MGM parties “must be dismissed,” according to complaints filed Friday in Nevada and California.”

Mind you, this is the same Mandalay Bay whose miserably incompetent security allowed the shooter to spirit something like 20 huge suitcases filled with guns and ammo up to his room over a period of several days using the freaking freight elevator, for crying out loud.  For this company to now claim that it has no liability in this mass shooting is just despicable, and so unbelievably stupid from a PR aspect that I honestly hope they get put out of business for it.  A pox on all their houses.

Oh, and here’s another tweet that President Trump just posted that’s worth mentioning:

This tweet is worth mentioning because it’s absolutely true, pointing to a reality that constitutes one of the most frightening aspects of our current political dynamic in Washington.  It’s not just that the President’s opponents oppose his outreach to Putin and Russia in a quest for political advantage – it’s far more than that.

For two years now I’ve been periodically writing about the obvious desire among the Democrat Party, most of the major news media and the warmonger faction among the Republicans in congress to actively seek a shooting war with Russia.  It is hard to grasp what the motivation behind this desire actually is, but there is no question have been viscerally opposed to any effort by President Trump to establish a more productive working relationship with the world’s only other major nuclear superpower.

This attitude and rhetorical dynamic came into focus when it became obvious that Donald Trump would be the GOP presidential nominee.  Given that Trump was the only candidate advocating for better relations with Russia, and that Putin was at the time still interfering in the affairs of the Ukraine, it would have made sense for the Pantsuit Princess and her amen chorus in the fake news media to develop counter talking points to that position.

But that’s not what happened.  What happened instead was the creation of an unending and steadily escalating drumbeat of rank hostility towards Russia from the same quarters of the Washington DC establishment that had just a few years before applauded the Coughing Crook for her juvenile “Reset Button” outreach to Putin and Russia.

This hostile clamor against any positive outreach towards Putin and Russia has now grown into claims of “treason” hurled at the President of the United States from noted Obama-era bad actors like John Brennan, James Clapper, Jim Comey and the Fainting Felon herself.  The leftwing rag Politico even published a piece on Monday openly advocating for the U.S. to declare war on Russia.  Breathtaking.

Hey, wait a minute:  Think about what other Russia-related events those people all have in common:

  • The “hacking” of the DNC servers, which the DNC (then run by the Clinton Campaign) refused to allow the FBI to properly investigate, prompting then-FBI Director James Comey to shrug his shoulders and say, “oh, ok.”; and
  • The Uranium One transaction, in which 20% of U.S. uranium reserves were sold to a Putin front Russian company in exchange for hundreds of millions of dollars flowing into the Clinton Foundation;

We now know that the Uranium One transaction was signed off on by much of the senior leadership of the Obama Administration at the time.  And of course, we know that the Clinton/Obama amen chorus in our fake news media ignored and even helped to facilitate the transaction with justifying coverage of it over the last 7 years.

Putin knows exactly what happened in both of those cases – is it any wonder, then, that all of these people would be horrified at the thought of President Trump holding a private meeting with Putin for 90 minutes in a neutral country?  Can we doubt that these people would gladly go to outright war with Russia in order to avoid real accountability for their actions?

This is the only explanation I can come up with for the years-long, outright advocacy for going to war with a country that has not attacked the United States in any real way – Russia has been meddling in U.S. elections for 50 years, so please don’t bring up their meddling in 2016 – and which possesses a nuclear arsenal comparable to our own.

This is not just “Trump Derangement Syndrome”, though that does play a big part in it.  More to the point, this is “Self-Preservation Syndrome” on the part of a pack of really bad people who have betrayed our country on such a grand scale that it is almost unimaginable.  If these seem like really desperate people to you, well, that’s likely because they are really desperate people.

Just another day in the truth will ultimately come out America.

That is all.
