Today’s Campaign Update
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)
It’s all Donald Trump’s fault! He caused this! Oh, wait… – When some nut job killed five people working at an Annapolis, MD newspaper on Thursday, many of the fake journalists who infest Twitter immediately knee-jerked to the conclusion that the tragic event was all the fault of President Donald Trump. Then it turned out that this guy had had a running feud with the paper since 2011. None of the fake journalists then backed up and blamed Barack Obama. Go figure.
But wait, these are the rules you asked for, Congresswoman. What’s the problem? – Mad Maxine Waters told the fake news media yesterday that she’s decided to cancel fundraising events in Alabama and Texas due to “serious” threats she’s received in the mail this week. The Braying Buffoon is, of course, fresh off of a Saturday event at which she incited violence against members and supporters of the Trump Administration, and then several subsequent appearances at which she refused to pull her remarks back and simply reinforced them.
So, sadly, these are the new rules she’s said she wanted, and now she’s complaining about having to live under them. Her fellow Democrats would do her a favor by joining with Republicans to force her out of the congress entirely and send her back to California to live in that multi-million dollar mansion she’s somehow been able to afford on a government salary. That would get her out of the limelight and most likely put an end to any threats. But doing that would require personal integrity on the part of those Democrats, so we know that’ll never happen.
Speaking of the new rules, more than 600 women staged a sit-in in the Hart Senate Office Building in Washington DC on Thursday in support of the Democrat/Media-fabricated “don’t separate the families!” issue on the border. The Capitol Police stated that 575 of the women (don’t any of these people have jobs?) were arrested and carted off to local jails, where they will be arraigned and released and probably pay a minor fine. Because that’s all we do to people who disrupt the nation’s business these days.
This weekend, there are several hundred such protests planned to take place in cities all over the country. ABC Radio reported this morning that “organizers” expected more than 100,000 people to participate.
Let’s think for a moment about that that word “organizers” that ABC so casually tossed out to its listeners without any effort to identify who they might be. Who are these “organizers?” Who do they work for? Who’s paying them?
ABC and their fellow fake news outlets want us all to just think that these are just a bunch of sweet little ladies and short, skinny guys with mustaches who “organize” such events out of the goodness of their little hearts. They want you to think that these events are somehow organic, that they just happen due to the pressing demand from people who can’t wait to get out onto the street on hot summer days and carry signs with stupid slogans on them while chanting slogans that are even more stupid.
The truth is that these “organizers” are professional agitators in the same mold as Barack Hussein Obama, who did this stuff for a living before some domestic terrorists and radical preachers decided he should go into politics. Indeed, the 28 year-old gal who got elected to congress in New York on Tuesday is nothing more than a professional “community organizer.” These people are both the past and the future of your Democrat Party, folks.
What you’re going to see on Saturday is a bunch of events organized by these Obama clones, in which most of the participants are not local citizens but paid protesters bused into these cities in buses paid for by George Soros and big foundations with names like Park and Heinz and Rockefeller. There’s nothing organic about them and they really have very little local support.
Saturday, then, is actually the kickoff of the Democrat Party’s campaign for the general election. These events will probably be fairly tame, but you can expect them to become increasingly shrill and violent as Election Day approaches and it becomes increasingly obvious the Democrats are going to suffer an other loss at the polls. Because this is all the Democrat Party is anymore. If you vote for them, you are voting for the destruction of the American Union.
Speaking of people trying to destroy our Union, Rod Rosenstein and Christopher Wray testified up on Capitol Hill before the House Judiciary Committee on Thursday, and boy, was it a spectacle.
Not that anything new really happened: Wray was his normal dissembling, ineffectual self and Rosenstein was his normal hostile, transparently lying self. This is who these guys are, and what they do.
Trey Gowdy got in his five minutes of hyperbolic grandstanding, after which he will go and accomplish nothing of substance, because that is who he is and what he does, too. It’s always inspiring to listen to him chastise these people as only he can do, but then reality inevitably sets in and you realize that that’s really all there is.
Jim Jordan got the best rise out of Rosenstein and that was fun, but at the end of the day, Rosenstein is just going to go on withholding key documents from the various congressional oversight committees, and Wray is just going to continue being a feckless leader who is doing pretty much nothing at all to reform the disgracefully corrupted FBI.
I would talk about the Democrats on the committee, half of whom are illiterate half-wits, but really, that’s all that ought to be said about them.
So, another all-day hearing during which nothing of substance was accomplished. After the hearing, the full House of Representatives did vote along party lines to approve a resolution that DOJ produce the documents by next Thursday. But the “resolution” is non-binding and fails to spell out any potential penalties for Rosenstein failing to comply, which will certainly be the case.
The reality here, of course, is that the House is not going to really do anything until and unless Speaker Paul Ryan is replaced by someone who possesses a set of gonads. Because Ryan is the obvious block to any effective action, and as long as he’s the Speaker, the current stalemate will continue.
Just another day in nothing real happening here, folks, move along America.
That is all.
