AOC and Her Fellow Radicals Threaten to Burn the Democrat Party to the Ground

The Afternoon Campaign Update
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

As Notre Dame Cathedral burns to the ground, the Democrat Party leadership threatens to join it.  – Nancy Pelosi was featured in a puff piece interview with reliable Democrat activist Leslie Stahl on CBS’ “60 Minutes” fake news program Sunday evening.

At one point, Stahl pointed out the different groups within the House Democratic caucus. “You have these wings — AOC and her group on one side,” Stahl said.

“That’s like five people,” Pelosi smirked.

Stahl responded by correcting the Speaker, saying that the “progressive group is more than five.”

“Well, I’m progressive — I’m a progressive, yeah,” Pelosi responded.

San Fran Nan may be “progressive,” but there are varying degrees of progressivism, and hers pales in comparison to that of our Bronx heroine, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.

As the New York Post points out in the linked article, the House Democrat “Progressive” Caucus is in fact the largest single segment of the Party’s house membership, consisting of 98 members, of whom AOC is among the “most recognizable,” as the Post somewhat hilariously puts it. What an understatement.

Pelosi claims to be in full control of her collection of miscreants, grifters and radical activists, telling Stahl that “By and large, whatever orientation they came to Congress with, they know that we have to hold the center. That we have to … go down the mainstream.” When Stahl asked her if “progressives” like AOC really understand that, Pelosi nervously replied that they do.

Well, you could’ve fooled AOC, Nan. Today, she told the Yahoo! news podcast “Skullduggery” that a Biden nomination “would be going backwards”:

“That does not particularly animate [me] right now,” she said, adding that she has “a lot of issues” with a potential Biden run.

“I can understand why people would be excited by that, this idea that we can go back to the ‘good old days’ with Obama, with Obama’s vice president. There’s an emotional element to that, but I don’t want to go back. I want to go forward.”

Oh. San Fran Nan’s botox is going to explode when she reads that. After all, Creepy Uncle Joe is the Democrat Party’s great doddering hope of appealing to the “mainstream” as Pelosi likes to refer to it, which really means the center/left segment of “independent” voters. As demented as San Fran Nan is, she is still enough in touch with reality to realize that no Democrat nominee can win the presidency without tacking some moderate votes on top of the Party’s hard-left voter base.

But AOC is having none of that. Having no use for Biden and his “mainstream” nonsense, her choice should be obvious to everyone:

“I haven’t endorsed anybody, but I’m very supportive of Bernie,” she told “Skullduggery.” “I also think what Elizabeth Warren has been bringing to the table is … truly remarkable, truly remarkable and transformational.”

So, no more of that fake commie stuff from the Democrat Party for AOC – she wants to got the full commie this time, and what better way to do that than with the old Bolshevik or the fake Indian?

Notre Dame Cathedral burned right down to the ground today because firefighters in Paris have no means of containing a conflagration in a structure like that venerable landmark. It is beginning to look as if the Democrat Party “leadership” is headed for a similar disaster, given that it has no means of containing their growing legion of chaos creators exemplified by AOC and Ilhan Omar.

Couldn’t happen to a nicer bunch of people.

That is all.

The Fake News Enemies of the People Promote Our Constant State of Outrage

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

These particular white supremacists don’t appear to fit the profile. – If you’ve been keeping up with the whole Jussie Smollett hoax, you’ll know that the cat finally rushed out of the bag on Friday, when Chicago police released a photo of the two “attackers” who Smollett had described as being white supremacists wearing MAGA caps and screaming “this is Trump country!” while they assaulted him. Here’s the photo of the “white supremacists”:

Oh.

Turns out these are two brothers from Nigeria who are now confirming to police what some of us have known all along: That the entire episode is a hoax schemed up by an incredibly insecure person to smear President Donald Trump and everyone who supports him.

It’s important to remember that pretty much everyone in our fake news media spent an entire week participating in and perpetuating the hoax, just as they participated in and perpetuated the smearing of the Covington Catholic School kids a couple of weeks earlier. If you want to understand why so many Americans spend their lives in a near-constant state of outrage, look no further than the talking head on your television screen or editorial board of your local newspaper.

CBS news is perhaps the most guilty of participating in this brand of outrage fake journalism this week, dedicating its “60 Minutes” program to airing a puff piece fake interview with disgraced ex-FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe in yet another effort to revive the rotting corpse of the media/Democrat “Russia Collusion” fantasy play. It is an absolute disgrace to the journalistic profession – whose own corpse is getting pretty smelly at this point – that a major media outlet would grant so much airtime to the promotion of a book that is little more than a 300-page smear of a duly-elected President of the United States.

Oh, wait, McCabe’s book is more than that, isn’t it? It is actually a 300-page outlining of a coup d’etat attempt that was organized and managed by a cabal of Obama holdovers at the FBI and DOJ. It is an outright admission of high treason, a plan to overturn the result of a national election. In a sane world, Mr. McCabe wouldn’t be on national TV being interviewed by the terminally smarmy Scott Pelley, he’d be sitting at the defendant’s table at a trial before a jury of 12 of his peers.

And we can’t blame the media alone for our state of perpetual outrage: They only do it in their unending efforts to support and provide cover for the Democrat Party, whose entire model for “success” relies on the Saul Alinsky/George Soros tactic of pitting one class of people against another.

In the latest of a million examples of this reality, Heather Nauert withdrew her name from consideration to become our country’s new ambassador to the United Nations late last week due to the constant assaults on her reputation and family from the Democrats and the fake news media. Her biggest crime? She apparently employed an illegal alien as a maid and paid her in cash.

Yes, friends, the exact same people who promote open borders so that all these poor people from Latin America can come into our country and “do the work Americans won’t do” went after Ms. Nauert for employing a poor person from Latin America for “doing the work Americans won’t do”. You seriously cannot make this stuff up.

Nor is the tactic limited to the national media – it is a constant feature in more local media, too. In Texas, out here in flyover country where I live, both the Fort Worth Star Telegram and Houston Chronicle were forced to retract a story from last week in which they accused Texas Republican Lt. Governor Dan Patrick of under-paying his property taxes.

When a friend commended the newspapers for correcting their story, I pointed out to him that no apology would have been necessary were both media outlets not so overly-anxious to smear any politician with an “R” next to his or her name. Indeed, if Dan Patrick were a Democrat, no story would have ever been printed, much less rushed to press without doing the 2 minutes of research needed to figure out that the reason why Patrick’s taxes on his home had gone down instead of up from one year to the next was because he had properly filed for the state’s homestead exemption, a tax reduction program to which every Texas citizen is entitled on their place of residence.

There is nothing to admire in what the Star Telegram and Chronicle did, just as there is nothing admirable about CBS promoting a criminal’s book or CNN and MSNBC spending 24 hours a day, 7 days a week promoting the latest smear du jour. It’s all just a part of the same tactic, the same business model, the same effort to fake the news in support of a favored political party.

When the news media is fake, our entire society suffers. If you want to see the true enemies of the people, just pick up a newspaper or turn on your TV. You can’t miss ’em.

That is all.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez: Marxism’s New Stalking Horse in America

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

That moment when all the liberal, rich New York Times subscribers on the Upper East Side sat up and said “hey, wait, that’s us!” – Alexandria Ocasio Cortez, who is fast replacing Bernie Sanders as Marxism’s favorite stalking horse in the United States, sat down for an interview on 60 Minutes with Anderson Cooper on Sunday, and hilarity predictably ensued.

First, our intrepid dancing heroine was, as always, completely unable to explain how she would pay for the $40 Trillion-plus price tag for her “Green New Deal” set of proposals, because of course she couldn’t – she’s a Marxist after all, and an incredibly ignorant and ill-informed one to boot.  When asked for an explanation by Cooper, she offered only a dodge:

 “No one asks how we’re gonna pay for this Space Force. No one asked how we paid for a $2 trillion tax cut.”

“We only ask how we pay for it on issues of housing, health care and education,” Ocasio-Cortez said. “How do we pay for it? With the same exact mechanisms that we pay for military increases for this Space Force. For all of these– ambitious policies.”

Oh. But she did offer a bit of a clue – and a warning for all of you wealthy liberals who think she’s just a cute, good-hearted gal from Queens or the Bronx or whichever burrough of New York City raised her to think the crazy things she does – later in the interview, when she said this:

“You know if you look at our tax rates back in the 60s and you have a progressive tax rate system, the tax rate from zero to $75,000 may be 10%, 15% etc. But once you get to the tippy-tops on your $10 million, sometimes you see tax rates as high as 60 or 70%. That doesn’t mean all $10 million are taxed at an extremely high rate, but it means that as you climb up this ladder you should be contributing more.”

So, for those “tippy-toppers” living in those muti-million dollar condos with wonderful views of Central Park in Manhattan who are already forking over more than 12% of your income in New York’s lovely state and local income taxes, that means that your new hero wants you to fork over more than 82% of your income each year to the various government entities that rule your lives.

Here’s reality: The Democrat Party has become the party of the rich in America during the first 18 years of the 21st century, as more and more rich people of European heritage assuage their “white guilt” by voting for people who specialize in reciting talking points designed to make them feel increasingly guilty.  These are the people who elected AOC, and if they keep re-electing her long enough she is eventually going to come and take it all away from them, because – and read this closely because it’s important – THAT IS WHAT MARXISTS DO.

It is what Marxists have always done, from Lenin to Stalin to Mao to Castro to that thug strongman who is starving his people to death today down in Venezuela.  THIS IS WHO THEY ARE.

Unlike Bernie Sanders, AOC has the advantage of being young and cute and able to release videos of herself dancing on a rooftop while she was in college.  Heck, she almost seems like a normal human being at times because of all of that.

But the best meme I saw on Twitter this past week was this one:

That’s right:  Stalin was young once, too. He was Russia’s AOC, around the turn of the 20th century.  As you can see from that photo, probably taken around 1900, he was a handsome young man, and no doubt an idealistic one who his friends thought was all hip and cool and stuff.  He could probably even dance, too, although the technology did not then exist to provide us video evidence of it.  That “60 million” number is probably an exaggeration, but there is no question that millions upon millions of human lives were lost because of this one man and his pursuit of his ideology, the basis of which is supposed to be “equality” for everyone.

But everything about socialism/communism/Marxism – whatever one wishes to call it – is a lie.  What it really represents is misery for everyone, as the people starving in Venezuela as you read this understand. The people pushing this “misery for all” philosophy can never explain how they would pay for all of their policies or anything else about them with anything resembling facts or truth because there are no facts or truth that supports them.

Which is of course what led to this final bit of hilarity in our cute heroine’s interview with Cooper.  When asked by Cooper about having been repeatedly called out even by the leftist media and her Democrat colleagues for repeated lies, she responded with one of her cute giggles and said:

“Oh my goodness,” an incredulous Ocasio-Cortez said.

“If people want to really blow up one figure here or one word there, I would argue that they’re missing the forest for the trees,” she said. “I think that there’s a lot of people more concerned about being precisely, factually, and semantically correct than about being morally right.”

Thus, the promotion of equalized misery for everyone becomes the “morally right” thing to do. How very Marxist of her.

Alexandria Ocasio Cortez is not a monster yet, because she has no power.  We enjoy making fun of her today because she makes it so darn easy to do.  No doubt, lots of people made fun of Stalin when he was 29, too, and nobody thought Nancy Pelosi was anything particularly special when she was 29, either.

Cortez was elected almost by accident, beating long-time incumbent Joe Crowley in the Democrat primary with just 16,898 votes in the heavily-Democrat congressional district. If the people in her district keep sending her back to congress long enough, she could eventually accumulate power and become able to hold the nation hostage to her insane policies just as Pelosi is doing today in her quest for open borders.

So laugh at AOC today, but know that she won’t be a laughing matter if she’s still on the national stage 20 years from now. Every Marxist monster in history was young once.

That is all.

The Democrat Mob is Preparing to Challenge this Election

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Well, of course he is. – Are you ready for Judge Jerry?  Well, NBC doesn’t care if you are or aren’t – you’re probably going to get him anyway.  Yes, friends, The Wrap is reporting this morning that septuagenarian Jerry Springer is working on a deal with NBCUniversal to star in a “daytime courtroom show” that could begin airing in 2019.  Because network TV just hasn’t cheapened the nation’s courtroom system quite enough already. I swear I don’t make this stuff up. Who could?

If you don’t know who Allie Beth Stuckey is yet… – Allow me to introduce her to you.  She’s made her own version of what a Democrat campaign ad would look like if a Democrat candidate were actually being honest about their beliefs and what they plan to do if elected.  It is three minutes of pure greatness:

If you didn’t get about 38 laughs out of that one, you might be brain dead.  Or you’re a Democrat.

Wait, is this a trick question? – How old does a correspondent for CBS’s “60 Minutes” have to be in order to be described as “approaching retirement age?” Let’s go back through a little history:

Mike Wallace worked there until he was well into his late ’80s.

Harry Reasoner did the same.

Leslie Stahl has been at the network since I was a sophomore in high school. Richard Nixon was president when I was a sophomore in high school.

Dan Rather was there until he had be-clowned himself so many times that not even CBS could pretend he as a real “journalist” anymore.

Morley Safer appeared to have passed away in place about 8 years before he was finally removed from the show’s lineup, but nobody noticed.

I bring all this up because the New York Post has a report this morning about the chaos that is reigning at network TV’s longest-running fake news program.  Seems the geriatric natives are getting a little restless over the prospect of having to work for their likely new boss, who will take over after former boss Jeff Fager had to quit over allegations of – you guessed it – sexual abuse and harassment.

The new likely boss, Susan Zirinsky, is a veritable spring chicken in “60 Minutes” world at just age 66. She’s been the boss over at the network’s “48 Hours” program for years, and it seems she must have developed quite the reputation over there, and the veteran “60 Minutes” bunch wants no part of working for her.

Hilariously, one of the Post’s inside sources “noted that at least one was ‘approaching retirement age’ and might have less to lose by threatening resignation.”  That no doubt has all the correspondents at “60 Minutes” looking at one another this morning and saying “wait – there’s a retirement age?”

Speaking of really old reporters who never seem to retire… – I missed this one on Monday, but Carl Bernstein, the former Washington Post reporter who hasn’t done anything worth noting since Watergate, said this in an appearance on CNN (because CNN is the only outlet fake enough to have him on anymore) on Sunday:

“I talked to people … in touch with the White House on Friday who believe that, if the congressional midterms are very close and the Democrats were to win by five or seven seats, that Trump is already talking about how to throw legal challenges into the courts, sow confusion, declare a victory actually, and say that the election’s been illegitimate.”

First, I laughed out loud at how he described his “sources” here – as “people…in touch with the White House.”  What that means is that, if he actually talked to anyone about this, which is doubtful, he has to describe them in this way because his “sources” are not in the White House and are so far removed from it that he can’t describe them even as “insiders” or “people with direct knowledge” of what he’s talking about.  In fact, this could literally describe anyone who has ever made a phone call to someone who works at the White House and left a voice mail. Think about it.

Anyway, the likely truth here is that Bernstein didn’t really talk to anyone other than his handlers within the Democrat Party who wanted him to put this nonsense out into the public domain. Bernstein is just the first of what will no doubt become many Democrat media shills spreading this rumor of the White House preparing to challenge the election as we approach November 6.

Why? Because this is exactly what the Democrats are planning to do should they fail to win a majority in the House of Representatives. This is the classic Saul Alinsky “projection” tactic, in which you accuse your opposition of doing exactly what you are doing or, in this case, plan to do.

This is exactly the same as in 2016, when, in the weeks leading up to the election, Democrats and their media shills berated Donald Trump for making a statement indicating that he might challenge the election if it appeared as if massive voter fraud had taken place.  Remember how they all told us day after day that even saying such a thing was terribly unpatriotic, even un-American? But then Trump won, and the Democrats have spent the last 23 months refusing to accept the election’s results.

Make no mistake about it: This is exactly what the Democrats plan to do again if they fall a few seats short of securing a majority in the House on Election Day, which I’ve been telling you for months is exactly what is going to happen. Thus, to lay the groundwork for that operation, they have media shills like Bernstein talking up the notion that this is in fact the Republican plan.

Expect to see Bernstein’s fellow Democrat media shills repeating this notion between now and Election Day. If the Democrats didn’t have “projection,” they’d have pretty much nothing at all.

About that “migrant caravan”, the latest estimate is that it has now swelled to 14,000.  It has added 12,000 individuals since it entered Mexico, yet our fake news media continues to promote the lie that it is made up mainly of Hondurans.  So, you’re supposed to believe that the countryside of southern Mexico is just filled to the gills with Honduran nationals.  My goodness.

Late Tuesday, President Trump issued this tweet:

Yes, folks, that is America’s Biggest Mistake, Barack Hussein Obama, in 2005 talking about how strongly he felt about the need to control America’s southern border and our right as a country to self-determine who and how many foreign-born individuals will be allowed to come join us here.  That of course was before he stumbled into the presidency and the entire Democrat Party became nothing more than a Saul Alinsky crisis operation funded by George Soros.

On Tuesday, both President Trump and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo continued to make it crystal clear that this invading army of mainly military-aged males from Mexico and points south will not be allowed to cross into the United States.  The Democrats think this all helps them win the votes of suburban white women, which is the motivation behind the entire crisis operation.  The Republicans are betting that suburban white women don’t want their country invaded anymore than other ordinary Americans.

We’ll get to see who is right in 13 days.  Stay tuned.

That is all.

GoFundMe Accounts are the Democrats’ Latest Racket

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

A (spineless) man in his element. – If you’re into punishing yourself, tune into tonight’s “60 Minutes” on CBS, where the Amazing Man With No Spine, Jeff Flake, will appear in a joint interview with Democrat Senator Chris Coons.  There you will see a man truly in his element, sitting down and sharing talking points with a Democrat politician and a Democrat activist fake journalist from CBS.

Hey, who knows?  Maybe this is a job interview for Flake.  After all, the ratings for the CBS Evening News have been in the toilet for years now, and Flake couldn’t do any worse than the current anchor guy is doing.

As if to prove my point about where he is truly in his element, Flake also made a joint appearance with the slimy Coons on stage at something called the Global Citizen Festival, a music event organized and televised by the newsfakers at far-leftwing MSNBC.  There, in front of this mob of social justice warriors, snowflakes and disciples of George Soros, Coons of course hailed Flake as a “hero,” which is exactly what he is to these people.

What would you do for a cool $1 million? – #MeToo movement activists and their fake news media shills have spent the week castigating anyone who dares to question Christina Ford’s serial lying about Judge Kavanaugh by claiming “there’s nothing in it for her to come forward!”

Uh, well, it turns out there a ton of money “in it” for her to tell her tale, as two GoFundMe accounts set up in her name have now already raised more than $700,000 and will certainly top $1 million and much more before this coming week is out.  Now, these funds were ostensibly set up to pay for Ms. Ford’s legal costs, but her own lawyers testified under penalty of perjury to the Senate Judiciary Committee that they were in fact working “pro bono” for Ms. Ford, so this money is actually most likely going right into the witness’s pocket.

So, here’s a hypothetical: let’s say you’re a college professor knocking down no more than $150,000 per year, and someone comes to you and tells you that hey, you can make a million bucks by spending the next couple of months being prepped for testimony by some of the world’s greatest experts in training people how to lie on the witness stand, and then spending half a day in front of a congressional committee.  All of your expenses will be paid, and you’ll be set for life.  Would you do it?

If you hadn’t figured this out yet, the use of these GoFundMe accounts is the new Democrat racket – the new way they have landed on to bribe people for doing their bidding while avoiding the scrutiny of the IRS, the FBI and the Federal Election Commission.  Andrew McCabe, Peter Strzok, and several others have now profited handsomely from this racket, and it will continue unless and until these federal agencies get their acts together and start auditing where the money is coming from and for what purpose.

“Wait, me?  I didn’t do that.  Er, uh, we didn’t do that.  I don’t think…did we do that?  What?  Er, um, my staff tells me we didn’t do that.” – President Donald Trump (I still never tire of typing those three beautiful, gorgeous words) was in West Virginia campaigning for GOP senatorial candidate Patrick Morrisy and against Democrat snake Joe Manchin last night.  During his stemwinder (they’re always stemwinders at these events) he did a hilarious riff on evil Dianne Feinstein’s stammering non-denial denial when Chuck Grassley asked whether she or her staff had leaded Ms. Ford’s letter to the fake news media.

Here’s the link.  Trust me – you have got to watch this.  Too funny for words, and dead on.

Let’s close this Sunday morning tour de force with some examples why, if you aren’t following @GDBlackmon on Twitter, you are not having enough fun in life:

And finally, there’s this PG-13 rated little gem…

I got a million of ’em folks.  I’ll be here all week
