John McCain’s Right Mind Has Always Been Wrong

Today’s Campaign Update 

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

  • The Democrat Party left him. – West Virginia Governor Big Jim Justice announced yesterday that he will be changing his party affiliation from Democrat to Republican.  This move is most likely motivated by simple political survival instincts, as Donald Trump won the state in 2016 by an enormous margin over Hillary Clinton.  Justice’s shift means that the GOP now controls 34 of the 50 governor’s offices in the country, and controls both the governorship and legislatures in 26 of 50 states.  This is the legacy of the abuses of the Obama years.  Thanks, Barack!
  • Et tu, Joe? – One can only wonder how much longer it will take WVA’s Senator Joe Manchin to make a similar political calculation.  Manchin is without doubt the most moderate Democrat in the senate today, and would likely vote with the Republicans well over half the time were he left to his own devices and not often held hostage to hardcore partisan politics.  He’d better think fast, since he’s up for re-election next year in what has become one of the reddest red states in the country since his last election bid in 2012, thanks mainly to public reaction against Barack Obama’s aggressive efforts to kill the state’s coal industry.
  • Are we past the Senatorial trading deadline? – Speaking of party switchers, nominally Republican Sen. From the News Media John McCain told the Arizona Republic on Thursday that he is in talks with one party’s senate leader about reviving the whole Gang of 8 Immigration “Reform” (i.e. open borders and amnesty) plan!  Of course, that party leader is Chuck Schumer, not Mitch McConnell.  Hey, here’s an idea, how about the Republicans just offer to trade John McCain for Joe Manchin, and call it even?  At least then, both men would be inhabiting their natural environments.
  • McCain logic 101. – Oh, but the Senator From the News Media wasn’t done.  He also has decided that the whole 16 year ongoing fiasco in Afghanistan is all the fault of …wait for it…DONALD TRUMP!  Yes, Senator, because everything was always great in Afghanistan for the 15 years prior to January 20, right?  My goodness.
  • By the way, if you are sitting there thinking that McCain’s latest bits of mendacity might mean that he is not in his right mind due to his fight against a very aggressive form of brain cancer, think again.  This is McCain in his right mind – it’s just that his right mind has always been wrong.
  • Bloomberg is reporting that National Security Advisor H.R. McMaster has concluded all by himself that Susan Rice is just a wonderful person whose national security top secret clearance needed to be renewed, and taken action to unilaterally renew it himself.  Isn’t that great?  Just further proof that some folks just need firing, and John Kelly needs to get busy.
  • They’re a determined bunch. – A year ago today, congressional Republicans were the single most hated segment of the Washington DC establishment.  They got lucky, though, as the Trump Campaign bailed them out of what otherwise would have been a major defeat at the polls.  But they have squandered that good fortune, and are now, a year later, right back into the same situation, thanks in large part to their refusal to move on the major elements of the Trump agenda.  In its latest poll released yesterday, Quinnipiac places congressional public approval at a record low 10%, down from 18% in March.  It wasn’t easy to squander such a golden opportunity, but it is impossible to overestimate the ability of a bunch of Republicans to screw up a good thing.  Great work, guys and gals!
  • Oh, yeah, and Special Swamp Creature Robert Mueller leaked that he has convened a grand jury so he can start issuing subpoenas now.  The Swamp is intent on taking this President down, and perfectly willing to take the country down with him if need be.  Don’t kid yourselves otherwise.

Just another day feckless Republicans America.

That is all.

All Fake News, All The Time: This Is CNN

Today’s Campaign Update 

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

  • Jim Acosta voids his bladder at yet another White House Press Briefing, hilarity ensues. –  The Fake News Network’s petulant and preening Jim Acosta provided yet another prime example of why he and CNN should be banned from future White House press briefings yesterday.  As Senior Policy Adviser Stephen Miller was discussing the details of the Raise Act, a piece of legislation that would modify the terms of legal immigration into the U.S., Acosta, without being called upon, constantly interrupted the speaker and engaged him in a debate in which he implied that the poem on the Statue of Liberty is the law of the land, and claimed that implementing a preference for English-speaking immigrants would limit legal immigration to “those from Britain and Australia.”  Acosta wasn’t even fazed when Miller correctly point out that English is the main language spoken in more than 60 nations around the world, and that the poem has no legal gravitas.  Naturally, Acosta appeared on CNN after the press conference and declared victory.  No one else gave him that credit.
  • Their next study will prove Donald Trump has poopy pants. – The Center For American Progress (CAP) announced on Wednesday that it will issue a report today that proves – PROVES, I say – that the Trump Campaign “colluded” with the Russians to interfere with the U.S. election process in 2016.  Fake news outlets Buzzfeed and The Hill reported on the announcement, identifying CAP only as “a progressive think tank.”  What neither of those two fake outlets tell their readers is that CAP was in fact founded by… wait for it…JOHN PODESTA, the goat-sacrificing campaign manager for Hillary Clinton, and that Mr. Podesta remains active in the group’s leadership today.  Fake News at its finest.
  • That make perfect sense, since he’s a been Democrat in practice since at least 2001. – Qunnipiac released a poll on Wednesday that finds that the public approval rating for Senator From the News Media John McCain is 35% higher among his natural Democrat base than it is among Republicans.  What else is there to say about that?
  • Speaking of the title of Senator From the News Media, the junior Senator from Arizona, Jeff Flake, is obviously seeking to succeed his fellow Arizonan in that role.  Flake, a fervent adherent to the idiotic #NeverTrump crowd, has been all over the fake news media this week, shamelessly hawking his new anti-Trump book titled “Conscience of a Conservative.”  Given the book’s copy-cat title, it was perhaps inevitable that Brent Bozell, Jr., the son of the man who was Barry Goldwater’s ghost writer of the huge 1964 best-seller of the same name, would strenuously object to the use of that same title for a book written by a Senator who has a very mixed record of conservatism at best.  “Jeff Flake is not a conservative, nor does he have a conscience,” Mr. Bozell told anyone who would listen.  All of which leads to the inevitable question:  What do the voters in Arizona think about when they go to the polls?  Really, are these two guys the best the state has to offer?  Sad!
  • Hey, it’s not just the media that’s fake – the temperature record is fake, too. – The great James Delingpole reports that Australia’s Bureau of Meteorology has been caught red-handed faking that country’s temperature records in an effort to “prove” the existence of global warming.  The BOM has been systematically erasing record low temperatures, or simply entering them into the record at higher readings than their thermometers actually showed.  The BOM has good company in this endeavor:  Here in the U.S., NASA and NOAA have been systematically “revising” the global temperature records they keep upwards since at least 2010, in an effort to justify the Obama regime’s heavy-handed regulatory actions.  The difference between the two countries is that the Australian news media has actually shamed the people at BOM into going about correcting their defrauded records, while the U.S. fake news media has studiously ignored the scandal.  Because that’s what progressive Democrats with press passes do.

Just another day in Fake News Media America.

Fake News, Real News, And Winning

Today’s Campaign Update 

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

  • Tired of winning yet? – the Dow closed at yet another all-time record high on Tuesday, now approaching the 22,000 level.  It has now risen almost 20% since Election Day.  Second quarter GDP growth – the first full quarter of the Trump presidency – was pegged at 2.6%, equaling the highest growth rate the economy ever saw during Barack Obama’s 8-year regulatory free-for-all.  We should expect to see even higher growth rates as the current administration continues to remove the regulatory shackles from the nation’s industries.
  • Couldn’t happen to a nicer guy. –  Sara Carter at Circa News, one of the handful of real working journalists still active in the nation’s capital, reports that former Obama National Security Advisor Ben Rhodes has been added to the House Intelligence Committee’s growing list of suspects in the illegal unmasking investigation.  Rhodes joins the mugshot lineup that already includes Obama-era luminaries like Samantha Power, John Brennan and Susan Rice.  You may remember Rhodes, who is most famous for openly admitting to an interviewer that the Obama Administration and fake news media regularly coordinated narratives and messages.
  • My God, dude, have you no life at all? – After President Trump used the term “Paddy Wagon” in a speech to law enforcement officials last week, the fake editors at the Washington Post thought it would be a great idea to run a 700 word dissertation by some guy named James Mulvaney about why this “slur” is “insulting…to Irish Americans”.  Mr. Mulvaney, like almost every leftist in the United States, has no sense of humor.  Fair warning to parents of college-age children with law-degree aspirations:  Mulvaney is adjunct professor at John Jay College of Criminal Justice, at least if the WaPo can be believed on that point, which as we have found, is an unsafe assumption at best.  The lesson here is, don’t let your kids attend John Jay College.
  •  Wait, wasn’t Bain Capital the Devil to you guys just 5 years ago? – Don’t look now, but Politico reports that Barack Obama has decided that the Democrats’ best hope to run against Donald Trump in 2020 is…wait for it…wait for it…DEVAL PATRICK!  What’s that?  The name sounds sort familiar but you really have no idea who that is?  Yeah, that’s the point.  For those who, like me, had a hard time recalling exactly who this clown is while reading that story, Mr. Patrick is an ex-Governor of Massachusetts, something that, in addition to being an executive at Bain Capital, he has in common with Mitt Romney.  You remember Bain Capital, right?  That’s the firm that, in 2012, was portrayed by the Obama campaign and the fake news media as representing everything that is wrong with America.  Five years later, it’s no big deal.  But whatever, trust me on this:  If the 2020 Democrat field is made up of 80 year-old communist Bernie Sanders, 74 year-old lifetime criminal Hillary Clinton, 70 year-old fake Indian Elizabeth Warren and an obscure ex-Governor of Massachusetts, the Party might as well not even bother.
  • How did this get into the NYTimes? – Don’t look now, but a member of the editorial staff at the NYTimes somehow slipped an op-ed piece past his colleagues titled “When Progressives Embrace Hate”.  Nevermind, of course, that American progressives have embraced hate since the day American progressives became a thing, this is the NYTimes we’re talking about here.  This is actual (pardon the pun) progress!  The editor, Bari Weiss, writes about 800 words about how awful it is that the organizers of the Women’s March last January included the hate-mongering Islamist Linda Sarsour, and how repugnant it is that this hateful woman continues to be embraced by American progressives.  That’s all true, and it is indeed nice of at least one person on the NYTimes editorial board to finally notice Ms. Sarsour’s true nature, but it’s hilarious that Ms. Weiss thinks this is all somehow a surprise.  Had she been paying any attention at all, she would know that the entire progressive philosophy is based on hate.  But, to quote the great John McClain, “Welcome to the party, pal.”

Just another day in fake news media America.

It’s The Mooch’s World And We’re Just Living In It

Today’s Campaign Update 

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

  • Somewhere, in an alternate universe from hell, Anthony Scaramucci and Megyn Kelly are getting married in a ceremony presided over by Maxine Waters.  Reince Priebus is the best man, Katie Couric is the maid of honor, and Freddie Mercury is belting out “Bohemian Rhapsody”.  I’m glad I don’t live in that universe.  This one is cray cray enough.
  • I hadn’t heard this until this morning, but in addition to a) being hired to do a job for which he had no visible qualifications, b) alienating everyone in the West Wing of the White House during his first 24 hours on the job, c) unwittingly giving the most profane interview in the history of the New Yorker Magazine, d) displaying a level of breathtakingly rank naivete’ towards the real nature of the fake news media, e) getting Reince Priebus fired, f) having divorce papers served on him by his Trump-hating wife, and g) getting not just fired, but forcibly escorted from the White House grounds, all within a span of 11 days, The Mooch’s wife also gave birth to a healthy new baby boy last Monday.  The Telegraph reports that The Mooch was not only not present for the blessed event, he chose to send his congratulations to his estranged spouse via text message.  Hey, at least he didn’t do it with a Tweet.
  • Speaking of adult children, what in the hell is wrong with J.K. Rowling?  The author of the unending series of Harry Potter books took a shot at President Trump a few days ago when she saw a snippet of video in which it appeared that President Trump had failed to shake the hand of a 3 year-old, wheelchair-bound boy at a White House reception.  Ms. Rowling – who has been a serial basher of the President on her Twitter account – wrote “How stunning, and how horrible, that Trump cannot bring himself to shake the hand of a small boy who only wanted to touch the President.”  Of course, it wasn’t horrible or stunning at all, if only one takes the time to view the full video of the reception.  The President had in fact interacted with the boy a few seconds earlier, not only taking his hand, but bending down to hug him and spend time talking with him.  Within hours, literally thousands of Twitter users pointed this truth out to the Rosie O’Donnell wannabe author.
  • Any normal person possessed of the most rudimentary human manners would have had a simple solution:  delete the tweet and apologize to both the little boy and the President.  But not the mighty J.K. Rowling, oh no.  Apparently simple good manners are beneath a fantasy writer of her stature and wealth.  Days went by with no word from the author, despite a building number of reports on her bad behavior in the news media.  Even when the boy’s parents tweeted directly to her that she was wrong and owed them, their son and the President an apology, no response the imperious writer.
  • Finally, a full day after the parents’ plea, Ms. Rowling lowered herself to issue an apology, but only to the boy.  It was only after Politifact weighed in on Monday, giving Ms. Rowling’s tweet a “Pants on Fire” rating, that the fantasy queen finally deleted the offending tweet.  But still no apology to the boy’s parents or the President, whom she was slandering in the first place.  What a creep.
  • Somewhere, in another alternate universe, The Mooch is firing J.K. Rowling and giving her Harry Potter gig to Megyn Kelly.  I’m glad I don’t live there, either.

Just another day in It’s The Mooch’s World And We’re Just Living In It America.

The Desperation Of The Democrats

Today’s Campaign Update 

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

  • As has been the case with the Democrat Party since the Clintons took it over a quarter century ago, whenever they are accusing any Republican of a bad behavior, it is a very safe bet that they are doing so in order to deflect attention from the fact that they are engaged in the very same behavior, or worse.  Over the last few weeks, we are now finally beginning to discover the real reasons why the Democrats and the fake news media have invested so much time and energy since November 8 of last year in promoting their Russia Collusion fantasy play.
  • Not that we hadn’t already been aware of some of the Clintons’ shady dealings with the Russians, of course.  Even before the election, we knew that Hillary, while serving as Secretary of State, brokered a deal that ceded control of about 20% of America’s uranium resources to a group of Russian oligarchs, and we knew that those same oligarchs just happened to pour tens of millions of dollars into the Clinton Crime Family Foundation around the same time that deal was being made.  We also knew that it was also around this same time that Bill Clinton was receiving double his normal speaking fee of $250k not once, but twice from the same Russian oligarchs.  Just a coincidence, of course.
  • It was only recently that Wikileaks alleged that Special Counsel Bob Mueller was also involved in the brokering of that deal.  Wikileaks, which has basically never been wrong about anything to this point, says it has found an email in which The Most Corrupt Woman In America got Mueller to deliver a sample of the uranium in question to a Russian representative in 2009.  The Wikileaks email points up the need for the Justice Department to investigate the Special Counsel while his own sham investigation is ongoing.  #Irony.
  • But that’s far from all there is here.
  • Since the election, we have also found out Clinton Campaign Manager, John The Spirit Cooker Podesta, took time out from sacrificing goats and chickens to serve on the board of a company with heavy Russia connections  , and that he owns 75,000 shares of that same company.  We also now know that Podesta failed to disclose any of this on his federal disclosure form when he went to work for the Clinton campaign.  Interestingly, we found out just a couple of weeks ago that company in question has suddenly collapsed, as its investors pulled the plug on its funding.  Funny coincidence, that.
  • But that again is far from all there is to this.  There are so, so many more reasons why the Democrats and their agents in the fake news media have been so desperate to keep public attention focused on their Russia Collusion fantasy.
  • Take the case of Debbie Wasserman Schulz and at least 2 dozen Democrat members of congress, and their longtime employment of one Imran Awan and several of his family members since 2004 at massively inflated salaries for instance.  Mr. Awan was famously arrested last Tuesday at Dulles Airport as he attempted to follow his family members in fleeing the country to Pakistan.  The initial charge against him is listed as bank fraud, as he illegally wired several hundred thousand dollars to Pakistan that he and his family had obtained via fraudulent loans from the Congressional Federal Credit Union.
  • But there is so, so much more to this story.
  • Mr. Awan, for example, as being paid more than $160,000 per year to be the “IT Staff” for Ms. Schulz and other Democrats, yet most congressional staffers in the same role make no more than $60,000 per year.  In addition, no one among all of these Democrats appears to be able or willing to point to what specifically Mr. Awan did for them in his “IT” role.  Add to this that Mr. Awan also had access to the email accounts for the House Homeland Security and Foreign Affairs Committees, and you can see that there is an awful lot more to come from this growing scandal should the FBI and Justice Department conduct a proper investigation.
  • But wait, there’s more!
  • What about Fusion GPS, the firm made up of sleazy ex-fake journalists that concocted the infamous “Trump Dossier” that James Comey tried to use to frame President Trump.  We now know that the preponderance of this bunch’s revenue comes from – guess who? – Russia!  Oh, and they also do a lot of work for Venezuela’s socialist regime.  Of course, the big unanswered question about Fusion is who exactly hired them to dummy up the Trump Dossier in the first place?  The group’s management isn’t saying, and Democrats are desperate to prevent us from finding out.  Go figure.
  • Oh, but we aren’t done yet, are we?  Nope.
  • How about the whole “unmasking” scandal, which the House Intelligence Committee has finally, at long last decided to investigate, and which the Justice Department claims to also be investigating.  We know now that senior Obama officials, including CIA Director John Brennan, National Security Advisor Susan Rice, and even UN Ambassador Samantha Power, issued thousands of requests for the unmasking of Republicans during the presidential campaign.  THOUSANDS.  It is more than fair to note that each and every one of those three people reported directly to Barack Hussein Obama at the time they were making those thousands of requests.  It is beyond the realm of credibility to believe their boss had no idea what they were up to.
  • There is even more than all of this, but I’m running out of space here.
  • The legend the Democrats and the fake news media have created is that Hillary Clinton and her campaign people believe they lost the election due to Russian interference, and that the Trump campaign colluded with the Russians during the campaign.  A full year of investigations into these allegations has produced zero proof of any such collusion, or really any evidence at all that the Russians influenced a single vote at the end of the day.
  • The truth, of course, is that it was the Democrats who were closely tied to the Russians, and the reason why the Democrats and their media agents have reacted so stunningly viciously to the election results is that they know that honest investigations into their activities will result in many, many Democrats – and possibly some fake journalists – serving major time in various federal prisons around the country.
  • Had Clinton won the election, there would have been no “Russia Collusion” fantasy play, no investigations into any of the matters listed above.  The Justice Department and FBI and our intelligence agencies would have remained utterly corrupted and would have protected all involved, just as they did during the Obama regime.
  • But they didn’t win the election, and they woke up the morning after election day frightened and desperate to come up with some way to divert attention to Trump and the Republicans.
  • We now know all of these things.  The only remaining question is whether Attorney General Sessions can force the FBI and his U.S. attorneys to focus their investigations properly.  We can only hope he will.  There is much investigating to do.

Just another day in desperate Democrats America.

That is all.

Trump May Be Playing 4-D Chess With Sessions/Priebus/Kelly

Today’s Campaign Update – Supplemental

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

  • It hadn’t occurred to me when I was compiling the daily Campaign Update in this morning’s wee hours, but in thinking through the week’s events and how Trump’s mind tends to work, it seems to me that yesterday’s replacement of Reince Priebus with DHS Secretary Gen. John Kelly could become a prelude to yet another Trumpian 4-D chess move.  Bear with me here…
  • There is no question that the President is both frustrated with and very fond of his Attorney General, Jeff Sessions.  President Trump was caught off-guard by Sessions’ decision to recuse himself from the Democrat/Media-generated Russia Collusion fantasy play, and has stewed about that decision ever since.  At the same time, though, Sessions was and remains one of the President’s earliest and most loyal supporters, and the two obviously like one another.
  • But the President definitely wants to move Sessions out of Justice, so that he can appoint a new A/G who can exert some semblance of control over the ever-expanding, obvious witch hunt that Special Counsel Bob Mueller is running.  Deputy AG Rod Rosenstein, the lifetime swamp creature who appointed Mueller, has steadfastly refused to exercise any oversight whatsoever.
  • But Trump has been warned by squish GOP senators Ben Sasse and Lindsey Graham that the senate would never confirm a new AG nominee if Sessions is fired.  Both senators also made it clear they would never allow the President to make a recess appointment for the AG post.
  • So what does any of that have to do with the “resignation” by Reince Priebus and his replacement with DHS Secretary Kelly?  Well, consider the following possible steps available to the President now:
    • Because Sessions has already been confirmed by the Senate for a cabinet post, those squish senators would have no ability whatsoever to interfere if Mr. Trump wanted to replace Kelly at DHS by moving Sessions into that job;
    • Because EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt has already been confirmed by the Senate for his position, those squish senators would have no ability whatsoever to interfere if Mr. Trump decided to move the former Attorney General of Oklahoma into the Attorney General slot;
    • Because Rick Perry has already been confirmed by the Senate for his job as Energy Secretary, those squish senators would have no ability whatsoever to interfere if Mr. Trump decided to move the former Texas Governor into the EPA Administrator slot;
    • That would leave a vacancy at the Department of Energy, but so what?  Does anyone believe that those squish senators would fall on their swords opposing a new nominee for that job?  Please.
  • Now, I have no information that the President is in fact thinking along these lines, but given his often-unanticipated moves over the past few years that turned out to shock everyone, we should not be surprise if he has a scenario such as this in the back of his mind.
  • Don’t be surprised if the Preibus-for-Kelly trade was just the first in a series of cabinet-level dominoes to fall.

That is all.

Donald Trump – The George Steinbrenner Of American Presidents

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

  • A reporter on Fox News last night compared the leadership style of President Trump to that of the late NY Yankees owner George Steinbrenner, as if that’s a bad thing. I beg to differ.  Yeah, Steinbrenner was a bitch to work for – he fired Billy Martin alone on 3 different occasions – but here’s the record: While he was running the Yankees, they won more games, more division championships, more league championships and more World Series titles than any other team in Major League Baseball during those 38 seasons.Steinbrenner’s record is so impressive that ESPN, in an article written upon his death in 2010, ranked him as the the greatest owner in the history of Major League Baseball, and the third-greatest in the history of all of professional sports.  Steinbrenner was pugnacious, he was disagreeable, he was often rude and profane, but more than anything else, George Steinbrenner was a winner.

    Donald Trump was not elected to the presidency to be nice to everybody.  He was elected to erase the horrific legacy of Barack Obama.  He was elected to return this country to its former status as a leader in world affairs (A real leader, not a “leading from behind” leader).  He was elected to get the economy up and running again after 9 years of endless economic stagnation.  He was elected to halt the unfettered invasion of this country by illegal immigrants from all over the world.  To put it simply, he was elected to be a winner, and make this country a winner again on the world stage.

    I’d say the comparison to Steinbrenner is pretty apt, and frankly, it’s a compliment.

  • The jettisoning of Reince Priebus has been inevitable since day 1.  The only surprise here is that he managed to last 6 months before getting the boot.  Priebus was brought into the Administration for several reasons, the most key of which was the thought that he would be able to work with his pal Paul Ryan and other GOP leaders in congress to get things done on the legislative front.  With this past week making it obvious that the Republican governing majorities in the House and Senate are the same old feckless, do-nothing majorities the party fielded during the Obama years, there was no compelling reason to keep the serial-leaking former RNC Chairman around.
  • My only disappointment about Friday’s events was that Priebus was the only elimination from the White House staff of incessant leakers.  In his profanity-laced interview with the New Yorker, The Mooch had promised he was going to fire “4 or 5” leakers on Friday, so I was on pins and needles all day long, waiting to find out who they would be.  But hey, maybe the others have already been fired and the President just hasn’t gotten around to tweeting about them yet.
  • If you think Kid Rock’s announcement that he plans to run for the U.S. Senate in Michigan next year is just an attention-seeking joke, you might want to think again.  The singer is clearly serious, and a new public opinion poll released on Friday shows him with a lead of 49-46 over the awful Democrat incumbent, Debbie Stabenow.  This is a poll taken by the Trafalgar Group, which was one of a tiny handful of pollsters that correctly predicted the victory of Donald Trump in Michigan last year.  Maybe the only one.  If the Democrats can elect a washed-up comic to the Senate (Al Franken), why can’t the Republicans elect an aging rock star?  And if Senator Kid Rock is sworn into office in January 2019, can Senator Ted Nugent be far behind?  If not, why not?

Just another day in The Mooch’s America.

That is all.

John McCain Sends A Final “F You” To The American People

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

  • Sen. From the News Media John McCain sent what may have been a final “f you” to the American people in the wee hours of the morning, joining quasi-Democrat Susan Collins and the flip-flopping Lisa Murkowski as the 3 GOP votes needed to kill the final effort to get an Obamacare reform bill passed out of the senate.  A few minutes prior to casting his vote, Sen. McCain was seen yukking it up with Chuck Schumer on the Senate floor.  No doubt they were sharing memories of all the previous times they had joined hands in efforts to screw the American people.  Good times…good times…
  • Anthony Scaramucci is either in waaaaaayyyyyyy over his head, or he is exactly the guy President Trump needed to bring in as a senior advisor to help clean out the swamp creatures who still infest the West Wing of the White House.  I can’t really decide which option to believe about this guy, and yesterday’s hysterics did not inspire a lot of confidence.  Not because of all the profanity – such discourse is the norm in DC – what disturbs me is his apparent naivete’ when dealing with leftwing fake journalists like Ryan Lizza at the New Yorker.  After Lizza published his telephone tirade against Reince Preibus and Steve Bannon, Scaramucci claimed he thought their conversation was “off the record.”  This displays a belief that he or any other person loyal to the President can actually trust one of these fake journalists to keep their word with them.  So, in saying that he thought the conversation with Lizza was off the record, Scaramucci is either lying or reveals himself to be a babe in the woods when it comes to dealing with the snakes in the fake news media.  Scaramucci can have his choice of those options, but neither one is good.  Let’s hope he uses yesterday as a real learning experience.
  • In his rant with Lizza, Scaramucci did promise that he was going to “fire 3-4 people” today.  Given that dozens of Obama holdovers still work in the White House operation, that would represent a good start.  Let’s hope it’s true.
  • Fox News got a call from one White House worker who said ” “This is getting out of hand. I am honestly getting concerned for my safety in the office tomorrow.”  Hopefully, this squeamish individual will one of the 3-4 staffers on the Scaramucci hit list today.  If a few cusswords terrify you, you have no business advising this particular POTUS.
  • As expected, the fake news media is doing its dead level best to cover up for Debbie Wasserman Schulz in the growing scandal related to her chief IT advisor’s arrest at Dulles Airport Tuesday.  Imran Awan is accused of bank fraud after he was discovered taking out fraudulent loans and sending the funds to associates in Pakistan.  Awan and several family members had worked for several dozen other congressional Democrats prior to the announcement weeks ago that the Capitol Police had opened an investigation into his and his family’s activities.  Every Democrat except for Cong. Schulz had fired Awan shortly after that announcement, but Schulz mysteriously kept him on her payroll until the day after his arrest, and has taken aggressive action to impede the investigation.
  • If that seems like a real news story to you, well, it doesn’t seem that way to ABC and NBC, who have not aired a single second of reporting on the scandal.  CBS devoted a full 37 seconds to it on Wednesday.  Meanwhile, the Washington Post managed to publish a 420-word report on the matter without mentioning Cong. Schulz or the word “Democrats” a single time.  No major media outlet other than Fox News has mentioned the fact that Mr. Awan is represented by an attorney who is a long-time Clinton toady.  Because that’s what fake journalists do.
  • Meanwhile, the House Judiciary Committee announced that it is finally, at long last, allocating resources to investigate the leaking activities of James Comey and the obstruction activities by Loretta Lynch in the Hillary Clinton email investigation last year.  Naturally, the vote to proceed was strictly along party lines, with no Democrats in support.

Just another day DC Swamp insanity America.

Better Jobs, Better Wa…Wait, What Did Trump Just Tweet?

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

  • On Monday, the Democrats rolled out their new Papa Johns-plagiarized slogan:   “A Better Deal: Better Jobs, Better Wages, Better Future.”  The slogan was so silly, so hokey, so obviously not having to do with anything today’s Democrat Party is all about that even the Democrat operatives at MSNBC mocked it mercilessly (though CNN dutifully played along).  The Party’s strategy, of course, was to yet again attempt to fool the American people that it had a focus on jobs and helping the average American have a better life.  The truth, of course, is that the Party and its agenda were long ago co-opted by Social Justice Warriors and Enviro-Nazis, which is the fundamental reason why the Republican Party holds every lever of power in the nation’s capital today.
  • But Chuck Schumer, Nancy Pelosi and the lunatics who are in charge of the DNC know they can’t actually change their focus to things that actually make a difference in Americans’ daily lives, so instead they paid some consultant millions of dollars to paraphrase a slogan off a Papa John’s pizza box.  Now, they thought, we can focus on our nifty new slogan, and pretend we care about the middle class!  It’ll be awesome!  High fives were flying at DNC Headquarters.  But then, on Wednesday, the President started tweeting….
  • …and part of his daily tweet storm that day was a two-tweet announcement that the U.S. military would no longer accept trans-gender applicants and force the U.S. middle class taxpayers to foot the bill for their trans-gender surgeries while they served.  In response, the Democrats and their agents who make up 98% of the nation’s news media went stark raving mad.  The Party’s focus was right back in the hands of the SJWs, the efforts to change the subject instantly forgotten.
  • Slogan?  What slogan?
  • Tired of winning yet? – The Taiwanese company FoxConn announced it is investing more than $10 billion in a new manufacturing plant in Wisconsin, a move that will create 13,000 American jobs.  President Trump wisely held a joint announcement in the White House with the company’s CEO.  Immediately after, heads could be heard exploding all over CNN headquarters in Atlanta.
  • Tired of winning yet, Part II? – On Wednesday, the Dow, the NASDAQ and the S&P 500 indices all reached all-time highs.  The fake news media – except for Fox News – were all too busy screaming about presidential tweets to notice.
  • The NYPost reports that Dancing With The Stars is currently in negotiations with…wait for it….wait for it…SEAN SPICER!  That.  Is.  Awesome.  Go for it, big guy.
  • Kid Rock, who is running for the U.S. Senate in Michigan against the execrable Debbie Stabenow, announced on his website that he will be registering people to vote…at his performances!  Those loud noises you heard yesterday were heads exploding at DNC Headquarters.  Yeah, they were exploding over the President’s tweets, but they would have exploded over this, too, had they had the chance.
  • After 9 Republican senators voted against the initial Obamacare repeal and replace bill on Tuesday evening, 7 GOP senators compounded the Party’s mendacity by joining all Democrats in voting down a repeal-only bill on Wednesday.  Five of those seven had voted for the exact same bill in the past when they knew Barack Obama would veto it:  Lisa Murkowski, John McCain, Rob Portman, Shelly Capito, and Lamar Alexander.  Dean Heller of Nevada wasn’t around in the Obama years, so he gets a pass on the hypocrisy, and, as I mentioned yesterday, Susan Collins has never in the past voted in favor of Obamacare repeal, consistently siding with her soulmates in the Democrat Party.  Hopefully, all seven will receive strong primary challengers.  They deserve them.

Just another day in Democrat heads exploding and fake Republican mendacity America.

That is all.
