With “Moderate” Democrats Like These, Who Needs Radicals?

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

Why, that’s so moderate! – Tim Ryan became the 2,342nd Democrat to announce his presidential candidacy this week, and the fake news media universally declared him to be a “moderate” among the field of socialists, Leninists, Stalinists, Marxists and outright commies who were already in the race.

How do we know Mr. Ryan, a Democrat congressman from Ohio, is “moderate”? Why, just look at his position on abortion: He’s all in favor of murdering children right up to the point at which they’re about to be born into this world, but unlike all the other ghouls already in the race, he’s against killing them after they’re already breathing free air. In reality, Mr. Ryan is every bit as batsh*t crazy as any of the other lunatics in the race, but he has a nice, tidy haircut, speaks fairly softly, isn’t out there on TV every day lying about having inside information that President Donald Trump is a spy for the Russkies, and as I say, has yet to announce his support of outright infanticide.

That makes him a “moderate” among today’s Democrat Party. My goodness.

And speaking of “moderate” Democrats… – Ok, just kidding.  I’m talking about our very favorite demented Democrat Socialist freak, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, or “AOC” for short.

AOC has apparently been taking “blackspeak” lessons from Hillary Clinton, and it got her into yet another controversy yesterday after she gave a speech to fake Rev. Al Sharpton’s National Action Network conference.

But first, a reminder of the context here: Who could ever forget this clip of the Pantsuit Princess giving a talk in Selma, Alabama, employing her impression of what Democrat racists like to refer to as “southern negro dialect”:

The insulting, condescending pandering to the mostly-black audience in the room that day literally bleeds through the screen. The Coughing Crook’s political mentor, segregationist Arkansas Sen. J. William Fulbright, would have been so proud.

As always, AOC chooses her own role models unwisely (first Stalin and Pol Pot, now the Fainting Felon), and she decided it would be just a peachy idea to engage in a little HRC condescension of her own when speaking to Sharpton’s audience.  The similarity is spooky:

To be clear, her words are fine: All of the lines of work she talks about there amount to very noble work that needs to be done, and I’ve done most of them myself in my younger days. But why try to say it all in a fake dialect? What’s the point of that, other than patronizing condescension and contempt for the audience?

Naturally, Twitter went wild in response to the release of that video, mocking the freshman congresswoman for descending even further into the depths of Democrat depravity than she had already gone before, which frankly had seemed almost impossible for her to do. And very predictably – as is her habit – AOC responded to the mocking by trying to paint herself as some sort of victim:

The problem is, no one was talking about “her” voice or her “distinct linguistic culture” – had she stuck to her own very distinctive accent, no one would’ve said boo about it. She was being slammed for trying to appropriate an entire class of people’s own accent and dialect, and failing miserably in doing so.

It’s demeaning to the audience, it’s insulting and yes, it is racist. Yet, there is a certain class of Democrat politician – usually, the phoniest among them – who think it’s a perfectly fine thing for them to do in front of largely-black audiences. YouTube is littered with videos of prominent, heinously phony Democrats like Barack Obama and Al Gore, in addition to the Grasping Grifter, employing this insulting tactic.

Now, AOC takes her place among that millieu. She’s learning fast what it takes to become a real rising star in the Democrat Party today.

That is all.

Joe Biden Would be the Democrats’ Weakest Possible Nominee

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

Tired of all this #WINNING yet? – The fake news media pretty much ignored the story, but U.S. weekly unemployment claims fell to their lowest point since the records began being kept half a century ago last week. The Trump economy is so strong that even Sears, which has been shuttering outlets since the Carter Administration, is opening new stores again.

The ADP private sector jobs report showed only 129,000 new jobs being created in March, but that low number is largely due to the fact that there are more than 1,000,000 more job openings today than there are unemployed workers. Given that, we can expect the government’s non-farm payroll report to be issued this morning to also come in with a low number. [Note: The BLS jobs report actually came in at a very strong 196,000, beating expectations once again.]

All of which ties back to the reality that the biggest problem we have in Trump’s economy is finding enough qualified workers to fill all the jobs being created. That’s a good problem to have.

He’s experienced, maybe too much so. – One of the things supporters of Joe Biden point to when making their case for why he’d make the best nominee for the Democrats in 2020 is that he’s experienced, and he certainly is. Biden was first elected to the U.S. Senate in 1972 at the age of 29.

During his first term in the Senate, he served with such blasts from the past as J. William Fulbright, Sam Ervin, George McGovern, Frank Church, Russell Long, and 1968 Democrat presidential nominee Hubert Humphrey. Fulbright was first elected to the Senate in 1945, Ervin in 1954.

But, while long years of experience in national government may be a positive for Biden in his run against an assortment of no-accounts in his party’s primaries, is not necessarily an advantage in a general election against Donald Trump, who was elected in 2016 over another “experienced” candidate specifically because he was an outsider.

Indeed, since Biden first came to Washington, the American people have shown a very strong bias against electing “experienced” guys like him to serve in the presidency.

Going back to the 1976 election, here is how many years’ experience in Washington DC our past seven presidents had when they got elected:

Jimmy Carter – 0

Ronald Reagan – 0

George H.W. Bush – roughly 20

Bill Clinton – 0

George W. Bush – 0

Barack Obama – 2

Donald Trump – 0

Combined, those seven presidents had about 22 years’ total experience in the DC Swamp, with Bush 41 having almost all of them. Bush 41, as we all remember, was defeated in 1992 by an outsider, Bill Clinton, who got a big assist from an even more authentic outsider, Ross Perot.

Are you seeing a trend here? I am.

Biden will no doubt be running as the guy who would bring us the third term of America’s Worst Mistake, Barack Hussein Obama, for whom he served as Vice President. Oh, hey, didn’t the Pantsuit Princess, who served as Obama’s Secretary of State, already try that one? How’d that work out for you, Democrats?

But what other reason would the American people have for electing Biden to the presidency? It certainly wouldn’t be based on his senate record, where he was wrong about literally every major issue our country has faced over the last 46 years. It couldn’t be based on all of his achievements as Vice President since, like every Veep, he didn’t accomplish a damn thing while serving in that office.

It definitely wouldn’t be based on his comparative youth and vigor, since Biden will be older on Election Day, 2020 than our oldest previous serving President, Ronald Reagan, was on the day he left office after serving two full terms. When you really get right down to it, the only real reason why Biden appears to want to run is that he regrets not running in 2016, when he reasonably should have, and now thinks it is “his turn” to be the Democrat Party’s nominee.

Nominating anyone because it is their “turn”, lacking any other compelling reason for doing so, almost never works out for either party in modern times. Let’s go back to 1976 again and take a look at those results:

1976 – Gerald Ford (Loss)

1980 – Jimmy Carter (Landslide Loss)

1984 – Walter Mondale (Record Landslide Loss)

1988 – Bush 41 (Won, became a one-term POTUS)

1996 – Bob Dole (Landslide Loss)

2000 – Al Gore (Loss)

2004 – John Kerry (Loss)

2008 – John McCain (Miserable Loss)

2012 – Mitt Romney (Loss)

2016 – Pantsuit Princess (Loss)

Look at those results. In all that time, the only “it’s my turn” candidate who was nominated by either party and actually won the election was George Herbert Walker Bush, and he only won because he was carried into office on the enormous coattails of Ronaldus Magnus. When left to run on his own devices after four years of deviating from the Reagan agenda and raising taxes, he also suffered a miserable defeat.

Joe Biden will most likely not go onto become the Democrat nominee in 2020 – I’m frankly still not convinced he’s even going to make a go of it, with all of these women still coming out of the woodwork to complain about his handsy habits.

But if he does get the nomination, Donald Trump and all of his supporters should celebrate.

That is all.

The Times and Post go Right Back to Faking the Russia Collusion News

The Afternoon Campaign Update
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Man, it’s like 2017 all over again. – With readership no doubt drastically declining in the wake of the issuance of a Mueller report that clears President Donald Trump, the news-fakers at the Washington Post and the New York Times decided last night to go back to their tried and true tactic of publishing fake reports based on unidentified and possibly even non-existent “sources.”

The Times started the night’s fake-fest with a front page story headlined “Some on Mueller’s Team Say Report Was More Damaging Than Barr Revealed”.

Wow! “Some”, huh?  Good ol’ “Some”? You mean the same “Some” on Mueller’s team who have been the fake “source” for all of the fake news stories the Times has published related to the Russia Collusion fantasy over the last two and a half years?  That “Some”?

Oh, but it gets better. Here’s how the lead paragraph in the story informs the reader who this “Some” really is:

“Some of Robert S. Mueller III’s investigators have told associates that Attorney General William P. Barr failed to adequately portray the findings of their inquiry and that they were more troubling for President Trump than Mr. Barr indicated, according to government officials and others familiar with their simmering frustrations.”

Ah, according to “government officials” – Adam Schiff and Jabba the Nadler, perhaps? – and “others familiar with their simmering frustrations”, is it? Who might those “others” be? Staffers for Adam Schiff and Jabba the Nadler, maybe? Note that we now have anonymous sources quoting even deeper anonymous sources. Maybe we should call them “double secret” anonymous sources.  Holy crap.

Or maybe these “sources” really don’t exist at all – there is literally no way for the reader to know. Why, you just have to trust the honesty and professionalism of the news-fakers who wrote and approved this story, even though they are the very same writers and editors who have published so many other blatantly false, easily-debunked fake news stories throughout the Trump Administration.

My goodness.

Not to be outdone, the news-fakers at the Washington Post belched out an equally ambiguously-sourced story of their own that I’m not even going to go into in any detail because it is a waste of my time and yours. Suffice it to say that it’s the same basic plot as the Times story with the same failure to identify anyone who served as the reporters’ actual source for the fairy tale.

Back to the Times story for a second: Rush Limbaugh landed on one of the most outrageous pieces of it during his first hour today that deserves repeating here: “It was also unclear how widespread the vexation is among the special counsel team, which included 19 lawyers, about 40 F.B.I. agents and other personnel.”

Think about that for a second:  FORTY FBI agents were tasked to the Mueller fake investigation, an effort Mueller and Rod Rosenstein and FBI Director Christopher Wray knew was fake from day one. FORTY FBI agents who could have been tasked to preventing terrorist attacks; FORTY FBI agents who could have been tasked with identifying potential school shooters before they killed a bunch of kids; FORTY FBI agents would could have been investigating something real, like the mob racket known as the Clinton Foundation. FORTY FBI agents who could have been working on putting deep state creeps like Peter Strzok and John Brennan and James Clapper and Jim Comey in prison.

Instead, they were all working on helping Mueller and his team of Clinton/Obama hacks dummy up a case for impeachment of the sitting, duly-elected President of the United States.

I focus on this because it was just a week ago that I wrote a piece here titled “The Misplaced Priorities of the FBI and DOJ Protect the Deep State Seditionists,” and here we have the New York Times delivering demonstrable proof of exactly how that works.

Thanks for proving my point, you news-faking hacks.

That is all.

The Democrats are Ready to “MAVA” – Make America Venezuela Again

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

How stupid are Democrat voters? – Impossibly stupid, apparently. With a textbook socialism-caused collapse of a formerly prosperous nation taking place right here in our own hemisphere for all to see, the Democrat voter base here in the U.S. appears intent upon taking our own country down that same doomed-to-fail path.

It isn’t just the elevation of mindless nitwits like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez to congress, nor is the movement to self-destruction limited to support for an array of socialist presidential candidates, from Pete Buttigeig to Kamala Harris to The Commie. Democrat voters are also electing socialist thugs at the local level.

The latest example comes in Chicago, where, after the holding of this week’s runoff elections, the city council will now be home to as many as six new socialist aldermen. One of those winning socialists, a thug (because all socialists are thugs by their very nature) named Andre Vasquez, looked at the supporters assembled at his victory celebration Tuesday night and exclaimed, “Take a look around the room, we did this!”

That’s pretty much what Hugo Chavez said when he was first elected el Presidente in Venezuela in 1998. At that time, that country was a thriving, vibrant country blessed with incredible, growing wealth from its gigantic oil reserves. Today, just 21 years later, its residents are starving and dipping their buckets into sewers for drinking water.

Good luck with that, Chicago!

Speaking of thug politicians… – Chuck Schumer’s tireless efforts to prevent the proper staffing of the Trump Administration are going to become a lot harder to carry out now that Mitch McConnell and the GOP Senate majority went all nuclear upside his head on Wednesday.

The move by Republicans will result in the application of limited debate time for district judge appointments and sub-cabinet-level officials nominated by President Trump. Democrat thugs have used the pre-existing rule that allowed for them to tie up the senate for 30 hours of floor time on each nominee to prevent the Trump Administration from becoming properly staffed, and to build a huge and growing backlog of district court openings that now numbers 130.

Schumer, who, while serving as Senate Majority whip under Harry Reid, aggressively worked to enact Reid’s first “nuclear option” move when the Dems still had the majority in 2013, naturally took to the floor with a hypocritical screed against McConnell’s move, saying at one point that he was “so sorry that my Republican colleagues have gone along with Sen. McConnell’s debasement of the Senate.”

Honestly, how do these Democrats sleep at night? That’s actually a serious question.

And speaking of thug Democrats… – meanwhile, over in the House of Representatives, Democrat thugs were throwing out subpoenas like mardi gras revelers in New Orleans throw out cheap strands of beads. And these subpoenas are roughly equal in value, come to think of it.

The House Judiciary Committee, chaired by the despicable Jabba the Nadler, voted along party lines to authorize the corpulent Chairman to issue subpoenas for the “full Mueller report” in unredacted form, along with its supporting documents. They won’t get it, because such a subpoena would require Attorney General William Barr to break a multitude of federal laws.

The main concern is that federal law has always prevented the public release of grand jury material, and the Mueller report is chock-full of such material. Nadler and Bug-eyed Adam Schiff went on TV to promise they would never, never, ever allow such damaging material to be leaked, but we all know that that promise would last for about 30 seconds before it all started appearing in the New York Times and Washington Post.

So, that cat won’t flush, and the Democrats know it. They’re just doing this to keep the whole “Russia Collusion” fantasy alive through November, 2020.

Next, the House Ways and Means Committee, chaired by Massachusetts Democrat Richard Neal, threw out a demand to the IRS for all of President Trump’s tax returns for 2013 through 2018. That also ain’t gonna happen, and the Democrats know it – it’s just another effort to keep that particular sham alive through the 2020 elections.

Kevin Brady of Texas, who chaired Ways and Means in 2017-18, slammed the Democrats’ grotesque lurch into political thuggery: “This particular request is an abuse of the tax-writing committees’ statutory authority, and violates the intent and safeguards of Section 6103 of the Internal Revenue Code as Congress intended.”

That’s all true, but the Democrat Party as a whole no longer cares about such things. All they care about is the acquisition and maintenance of political power, patiently working towards the day when they once again control all levers of federal power as they did in 2009-10, during which they succeeded in nationalizing and destroying our nation’s health insurance system.

Should they ever achieve that goal again, this even more radicalized socialist Democrat Party will make 2009-10 seem like a walk in the park. They’re ready now to go full Nicolas Maduro on us, make no mistake about it.

I used to tell friends ‘vote for Democrats at your own risk,’ but I can’t even go there anymore. Because these days, a vote for any Democrat is a risk to all of us.

That is all.

The Long Knives Come Out for Creepy Joe Biden – But Whose Knives?

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

Ok, it’s official, the long knives are out for Creepy Uncle Joe. But who’s controlling the knives? – When you are leading the horse race polls for the Democrat Party presidential nomination and the news-faking Democrat activist lapdogs at the New York Times start going after you, you know that someone else in your own party is coordinating the effort to take you out. For Joe Biden, the question at this point is who?

On Tuesday the Times ran a report detailing not one, but two more women who have come forward to make complaints about the ex-Veep’s well-known habit of getting more than a little handsy with women and children at public events. One woman, who was 19 at the time, said the then-Vice President placed his hand on her thigh while the two were seated on stage next to one another and did not have the sense to remove it despite her visible discomfort.  The other, 59 at the time, said Biden initially placed his hand on her shoulder and then began slowly moving it down her back before her husband saw what was happening and interrupted things by telling a joke.

The Times piece is careful to note that neither woman is accusing good ol’ Joe of “harassment” – not exactly, anyway – and to include remarks from women who are supporting the candidate’s preferred narrative that he’s just a harmless old guy who means no harm. It’s key to note that all such women who have come forth with such supporting remarks so far – from Mika to Whoopi to Ash Carter’s wife to Mazie Hirono to Meghan McCain – are part of the political ruling class in our country, and members of that class pretty much always stick together in times such as this.

But will this counteroffensive by the Biden camp work? Because what began on Friday as a single accusation is quickly turning into a flood, and the more women who’ve been groped by Biden come forward, the more will likely feel emboldened to do the same.

And let’s be honest, there are many, many more waiting in the wings. It is not like any of this is “new” news. Here’s what I wrote about Biden’s problematic past back in November, 2017:

  • As rumors of handsy ol’ Joe Biden’s plans to run for the presidency for a third time in 2020 continue to swirl, leftwingers everywhere are getting very nervous about the fact that there are literally hours upon hours of video out there in the public domain of the former Veep inappropriately putting his hands on women and girls and invading their space.  As liberal heroes all over the country, like Harvey Weinstein, Kevin Spacey and Al Franken are revealed to be horrific sexual harassers, it is becoming quite obvious that a Biden run for the presidency would be like manna from heaven for the Republican Party.
  • Even the near-terminal nitwits who run the ultra-leftwing online fake news site, the Huffington Post, are waking up to this uncomfortable reality.  And when the HuffPo is waking up to inconvenient truths about the left, that means pretty much everyone else already has, since the folks at the HuffPo are very slow learners.  On Saturday, Amanda Terkel, the fake news site’s Washington Bureau Chief, published a very long expose’ on Handsy Joe’s history of publicly groping women, saying  that “From former Fox News host Bill O’Reilly to producer Harvey Weinstein to comedian Louis C.K., men are losing their jobs after years of having sexually harassed or assaulted women with impunity.  Biden is the wrong guy to bear the standard of any party purporting to speak for the victims of unaccountable power.”  Well, yeah.  So good of you to notice, at long last.

Indeed, it isn’t just the Democrat lapdogs at the Times who are rushing to publish butt-covering pieces critical of Biden’s behavior, present and past – they’re suddenly popping up all over the place. In its own CYA piece, The Atlantic also notes that this is nothing new:

In one way, the allegations against Biden are shocking. In another way, though, they are precisely the opposite. Flores and Lappos have accused Biden, after all, of engaging in exactly the kind of behavior that he has been repeatedly documented engaging in, over a period of years, through file photos and C-SPAN footage and the other media that steadily help to convert American politicians into American celebrities. Gawker, in early 2015, published an image essay taxonomizing the varied ways Biden has been photographed interacting—closely and intimately and publicly—with women and girls. So did New YorkmagazineThe Daily Show offered a video-based version of the same: “The Audacity of Grope,” the segment was called. (It featured documentary footage of Biden engaged in assorted acts of woman-whispering, and culminated in Samantha Bee, the show’s fake White House correspondent at the time, appearing with the front of her blouse and the back of her skirt marked with handprints. She had just come from a meeting, Bee explained to Jon Stewart, with the then vice president.)

The Biden camp is out there now accusing the Bernie Sanders campaign of putting all these women up to coming out en masse, based solely on the fact that the initial accuser, Nevada political activist Lucy Flores, formerly worked for the Sanders campaign. But is that really what is going on here? Maybe, but given the diversity of those complaining thus far, it seems doubtful. While it certainly would not be in any way unusual for the Commie and Flores to have coordinated the initial complaint, the three other women who have thus far come forward do not appear to have any affiliation with the Sanders camp.

Another possibility is that this is all an “inoculation” effort coordinated by Biden’s own camp. It could be an attempt to get several accusations out there into the public domain by “complainers” rather than “accusers.” It is interesting to note that all four of these women have been very careful not to accuse Biden of trying anything sexual with them, supporting the “harmless old man” narrative preferred by the Biden camp and parrotted in most of the fake news media stories so far. The four complaints thus far have given Biden a chance to appear gracious and almost even thoughtful – to the extent the insufferable doofus Biden is capable of being “thoughtful” –  in his responses, and could help to inoculate him against more damaging accusations that might arise in the future.

Or it could be just an organic thing, an almost inevitable outcome created by the ham-handed behavior of a man who has been doing all of this in front of filming cameras for almost half a century now. As the Times story notes, the societal norms have shifted beneath Biden’s feet over the decades, and behavior that might have been written off decades ago as just a harmless old man expressing affection in an obnoxious way can no longer be written off so easily.

Any of the three possibilities seem equally likely, and I frankly don’t care. This was all going to become a problem for Creepy Uncle Joe sooner or later, and the only surprising thing about any of it is that anyone is actually surprised at all.

That is all.

The Oil and Gas Situation: Reviewing 6 Predictions

Today’s Energy Update
(Because Energy Fuels Our Lives)

As Q1 2019 comes to a close, it is time to review the status of some predictions I made here the day after Christmas for what we would see during the first half of 2019. Accurately gauging where the industry will be several months into the future is always a crap shoot, and as usual, I find myself feeling glad I didn’t go out and bet the farm on any of these.

First, let’s look at what I had to say about the domestic rig count as calculated by the folks at DrillingInfo:

…my first prediction is that we will see a gradual fall in the domestic U.S. rig count throughout the first half of 2019. Indeed, the DrillingInfo Daily Rig Count already fell by about 3% during December, from 1160 to 1120 on December 25. I’m betting that, by June 30, that measure will be below 1050…

This particular count finished the quarter at 1049, after falling slowly but steadily throughout the first three months of the year. This represents a 9% drop since Christmas day, and there is no real reason to expect this trend to change during the second quarter, with so many upstream companies prioritizing stock buybacks and other programs designed to return capital to investors and lenders over the mad rush to increase production we saw throughout 2017 and the first 8 months of 2018.

A reasonable updated guess would be that we will see the DrillingInfo count fall to right around 1000 by the time June 30 rolls around.

What about crude prices? Here’s what I predicted they would do in Q1:

…my second prediction is that the price for WTI will rise again, but will not exceed $60 during the first half of 2019.

As things turned out, I had the general direction of crude prices right, but underestimated how rapidly they would rise, as WTI closed at $60.14 in Friday’s trading. The basic market dynamics that advocated in December for what has been a 20% recovery in the WTI benchmark remain in place today. Global demand continues to rise more rapidly than all the experts thought it would at the first of the year, and the OPEC-plus nations still maintain pretty strong compliance with their export quotas.

Mika, Whoopi – Believe the Women!!!! Wait, no, NOT THOSE WOMEN!!!!!

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

All you #MeToo warriors must feel like complete dopes this morning.  – This was as predictable as it is repugnant: The parade of leftist women who have spent the last year and a half screaming that all women who make accusations of sexual harassment and assault must – must, they say – be believed out of hand are now coming out of the woodwork to say, “Hey, we didn’t mean THOSE women!” Meaning, of course, any woman who dares to make the #MeToo claim about the frontrunner for the Democrat 2020 presidential nomination, Crazy Uncle Joe Biden.

Mika WhatshernamethatIcanneverspellright had her personal coming out as an anti-#MeToo activist on Monday’s “Morning Joe,” saying this about the ex-Vice President:

“There’s a lot of things I know about Joe Biden. I’ve known him for a long time,” Brzezinski stated. “He is extremely affectionate, extremely flirtatious in a completely safe way. I am sure that somebody can misconstrue something he’s done, but as much as I can know what’s in anyone’s heart, I don’t think that there’s a bad intent on his part at all.”

Don’t you just love that phrase, “extremely flirtatious in a completely safe way”? Do you think Morning Mika would have ever in a million years given two seconds’ thought about applying it to any politician with an “R” next to his name? Please.

Never to be outdone in the realm of sucking up to Democrats on national television, never-funny failed comic Whoopi Goldberg used her seat on “The View” to go even further than Morning Mika, saying “I don’t want Joe to stop doing that,” meaning Biden’s habit of placing his hands on women’s shoulders, sniffing their hair and whispering sweet nothings into their ears.

Goldberg went further, attacking Biden’s first accuser, Nevada #MeToo warrior Lucy Flores:

“Joe is a hands-on kind of guy. I’ve never heard anyone—she says she felt violated. I have to take her at her word. But it would have been nice if she turned to him and say, ‘You know what, I don’t really like this. Please don’t do this, Mr. Vice President. I’m not comfortable with this.’ Something, because he’s standing right there.”

Why, it’s just Uncle Joe, Lucy! He’s just an innocent, “hands-on kind of guy” and you need to either tolerate that or chastise the Vice President of the United States (Biden assaulted Flores in 2014) right there to his face! Don’t worry about those Secret Service guys with bulging jackets hiding their .44 magnums – you just get up in the Veep’s face!”

Try to imagine how Whoopi and all the other shrieking SJWs would have reacted had a male host of any television program said that about any #MeToo accuser. That guy would have been out of job in about 30 seconds, yanked off the set by ABC’s management before the show ended.

But it’s Whoopi, attacking a powerless woman who is pointing a finger at a prominent Democrat, so that’s ok.

As Former Democratic Aide Amy Lappos came forward with her own accusations about Biden’s “extremely flirtatious in a very safe way” habit of assaulting women at public events, other prominent Dems were rushing to the Party Patriarch’s defense. Despicable Illinois Senator Dick Durbin said Biden’s actions were “not disqualifying,” while ex-Senator from the same state Carol Mosely Braun called Biden “a man who spent his life being nice to people,” something that no #MeToo activist anywhere has ever said was a valid excuse for Biden’s type of unwanted advances.

Lappos accuses Biden thusly:

“He put his hand around my neck and pulled me in to rub noses with me,” she told the Hartford Courant, recounting their meeting at a 2009 fundraiser. “When he was pulling me in, I thought he was going to kiss me on the mouth.”

Oh, hey, Amy, that’s just sweet, non-threatening ol’ Joe being nice to people. What, you don’t like Eskimo kisses? Are you a racist or something?

Other Biden defenders attacked Flores directly. Rick Wilson attacked her for actually being prepared for the interview in which she made her accusation, saying “As somebody who’s done a hell of a lot of media training I can tell when somebody’s been [prepped] for an interview to within an inch of their life.” Uh, ok.

Randi Weingarten, President of a major teachers union, tweeted “I just hope it’s not true that Flores was prompted to write her essay because of her work with Bernie campaign.” See, you just can’t believe those women; you know, women who worked for Bernie. Wink, wink.

See how this works?

Flores responded to Weingarten’s absurd taunt by noting she hasn’t endorse Sanders or anyone else in the race, and then pointed out that, given the immense wealth of evidence of Biden’s poor behavior towards women that exists in the public domain, “this should have been addressed long ago.”

Bingo.

So, why hasn’t that reckoning happened until now? Lappos answered that one quite succinctly: “I never filed a complaint, to be honest, because he was the vice president. I was a nobody.”

Bingo again.

See, sexual assault is all about power, and Biden, first as a prominent Democrat Senator who was always “nice to people” in Mosely-Braun’s words, and then as Barack Hussein Obama’s Vice President, always had the power.

This is exactly, precisely the very situation that the #MeToo movement and those who, like Mika and Whoopi have pretended to speak for it, was supposed to address. But when push comes to shove, and the guy being accused happens to be the Democrat frontrunner, well, don’t bother these people with silly things like principles and intellectual honesty, and least of all, believing the women.

Not those women.

That is all.

AOC and Mad Maxine: The Prophets of Democrat Mendacity and Ignorance

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

Liberals: It’s not what they don’t know that’s the problem, it’s what they “know” that just isn’t so. – The multi-generational ignorance of Democrat Party leaders was on display over the weekend, and it is glorious.

First up was the elderly face of the Democrat Party, 80 year-old Maxine Waters, who was apparently off her meds and went off into a dementia-driven rant during an interview at the NAACP’s Image Awards. First, she outrageously compared the congressional Democrats’ absurd requests for the release of an unredacted Mueller report and all of its background documentation to … wait for it…oh, you have to wait for this one…APARTHEID. I swear I do not make this stuff up – who could?

She then clearly demonstrated she has no clue about the size of the Mueller report, saying “No matter what has been revealed thus far and there’s only four pages of what appears to be a report of about, maybe somewhere between 3,000, 4,000 pages.”  Oh. For accuracy’s sake, pretty much every media outlet in America has reported that Mueller’s report consists of about 300 pages, so Waters was only off by a factor of about 10, which is far closer than she normally gets to the reality of any given situation.

But the best part of Mad Maxine’s rant about the absolute, irreversible necessity for she and her despicable colleagues in congress to get their grasping claws on every shred of paper Mueller and his team generated, is her statement that, well, they really don’t need it after all:

“And so, no matter what this report is thus far, we have seen enough. We have seen right before our very eyes the obstruction of justice in so many ways.” Oh. Ok. So it’s absolutely, 100% mandatory that you see the whole report and all of its documentation, but you’ve seen enough already, and really don’t need to see any of it at all. Gotcha.

Next up in the Democrat Party Parade of Nitwits was another Usual Suspect, the spoiled child Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.  AOC, as she likes to be called, doesn’t have advancing age as a rationalization for her complete lack of acquaintance with reality – with her, it just plain damn ignorance compounded by absolute arrogance.

Given a three-hour platform by her willing accomplices at MSNBC to pitch her imbecilic “Green New Deal” to America’s growing legion of mind-numbed masses, AOC preached (and as Grabien News notes, it was without question a religious event) about all manner of Socialist nitwittery to the adoration of the carefully-constructed, invited audience. As it always is with her, as long as she was sticking to the array of talking points written for her by her “Justice Democrats” handlers, the Bronx Bartender did fine.

The problem came when she decided to ad lib from those messages, as when she rewrote history by claiming that some nebulous “they” amended the U.S. constitution to boot Franklin Roosevelt out of office:

“They had to amend the Constitution of the United States to make sure Roosevelt did not get reelected.”

Because, of course, rewriting history is always one of the first goals of Marxist thugs in taking over any country. For the record, FDR passed away while serving his fourth term in 1945. The 22nd amendment, which limits president’s to two full terms in office, was enacted by the nebulous “they” in 1947.

Then, there was this handy justification for government control of the means of production:

“We are dealing with a crisis of how our economy is made up. Our economy is increasingly financialized. Which means we’re making profits off of interest and off of leasing your phones, off of doing all these things, but we’re not producing and we’re not innovating in the way we need to as an economy.”

What a load of fresh, smelly horse manure that is.

Again, for the record, our economy is booming, performing better during 2018 than it has in well over a decade. America over the past two years has seen a massive rebirth in its manufacturing sector, which has produced hundreds of thousands of jobs and hundreds of billions of dollars in investments, and our society has over the last 20 years experienced a level of technological innovation that vastly surpasses any period in human existence and would be considered absolutely miraculous by anyone born prior to the 20th century.

What AOC and Mad Maxine show us is that abject ignorance and despicable mendacity are not things bound by age, generation or personal experience. These people live in their own made-up dream world, and unfortunately, that dream world is shared by millions of similarly ignorant Americans.

Which precisely describes the basic working model for today’s Democrat Party.

That is all.

Uncle Joe’s Creepiness Comes Back to Haunt Him

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

Uncle Joe’s creepiness comes back to haunt him – and this is just the beginning.  – The fake news media will do its dead-level best to kill this story, but it’s out there now, and there are lots more just like it.

In case you get your “news” from one of the major broadcast networks and missed it, a former Nevada assemblywoman and Democrat #MeToo activist, Lucy Flores, is accusing Creepy Joe Biden of groping and kissing her at a campaign event in 2014. Here is how she describes the incident:

“I was taking deep breaths and preparing myself to make my case to the crowd, I felt two hands on my shoulders. I froze. “Why is the vice-president of the United States touching me?” I felt him get closer to me from behind. He leaned further in and inhaled my hair. I was mortified. I thought to myself, “I didn’t wash my hair today and the vice-president of the United States is smelling it. And also, what in the actual f*ck? Why is the vice-president of the United States smelling my hair?” He proceeded to plant a big slow kiss on the back of my head. My brain couldn’t process what was happening. I was embarrassed. I was shocked. I was confused. There is a Spanish saying, “tragame tierra,” it means, “earth, swallow me whole.” I couldn’t move and I couldn’t say anything. I wanted nothing more than to get Biden away from me. My name was called and I was never happier to get on stage in front of an audience.”

The truth, of course, is that Biden has made a habit of such inappropriate groping of women, girls and small children at public events throughout his political career. There are literally dozens of video clips of such incidents, with women and children visibly cringing as Biden puts his hands on them, snuggles into their hair and even kisses them right there on stage for all to see.

Biden’s supporters – which includes the preponderance of our fake news media, of course – have spent the last 40 years claiming it’s all fine, that Biden is somehow harmless, and that the women and kids really are enjoying it all. And of course, as they had been groped by a powerful senator and then vice president, the gropees have been reluctant to complain.

But times are changing, and social justice warriors like Ms. Flores are not going to just sit by quietly and take this sort of abuse.

We also have stories out there in the public domain about Biden making a habit of taking nude midnight swims in front of secret service agents, some of them women.

Again, the fake news media will do all it can to keep covering for Creepy Uncle Joe, but that is going to be far, far harder to do in today’s social media-dominated world.

All of which may be one of the reasons why the guy who is leading the Democrat polls is taking so long to formally announce his campaign. There’s a lot to try to explain away here, and the elderly ex-VP may not be up to that job.

That is all.
