The Week in Review: WINNING. Sooooo Much Winning.

The Campaign Update Week in Review
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Tired of all this #WINNING yet? – Late Friday evening, the U.S. Supreme Court reversed the absurd lower court ruling by an Obama-appointed judge denying the President his clear constitutional authority to redirect unused funds from the military budget towards the building of the wall along our southern border. Let us never forget that the building of that wall was fully authorized by the U.S. Congress during both the Bush and Obama administrations, and those bi-partisan bills were signed into law by those two ex-presidents.

For now, $2.5 billion in funding is freed-up to begin construction on at least 100 miles of new border wall, although the ACLU, in its never-ending efforts to obstruct everything the Trump Administration does, vowed to move to accelerate a separate case it has pending before the ever-reliable 9th Circuit Court of Appeals. Thus, the shameful, un-American Lawfare effort set up by the Obama Administration in its waning days will continue in this case.

Tired of all this WINNING yet? Part II. – It has been a week of extraordinary WINNING for President Donald Trump and his administration. Soooooo much winning that it’s seriously hard to know where to begin. Let’s look at a few of the more notable items, starting with the most obvious:

The Mueller Witch Hunt is now officially over and dead. – Try as the Democrats and fake news media might to pretend otherwise, Robert Mueller’s moribund, doddering appearance before two kangaroo court congressional committees this week ended any thought that his despicable investigation would provide some sort of roadmap to impeachment, as the DC Swamp had hoped it might. Oh, the Democrats will continue to pound on their lost arguments over “obstruction” and “collusion”, but those arguments have always been false and Mueller’s two-year effort failed to provide them any foundation in reality.

Because our news media is such a Dumpster Fire of Fake, it takes the public awhile to catch on, but a clear majority now are sick and tired of the entire charade and the needle continues to move in the direction of truth. So this ugly chapter in our nation’s history – brought to us by the Democrat Party and its media toadies – is effectively over.

New record highs in the stock markets. – Despite the best efforts of the swamp snakes at the Fed to hold the economy down, this week saw a renewed surge in corporate earnings across the breadth and depth of the U.S. economy. That surge led to the setting of yet more record highs in all of the major stock indexes, benefiting the various types of retirement funds held by tens of millions of ordinary Americans.

Economic growth beat expectations. – Although it came in at an Obama-like 2.1%, U.S. GDP growth for the second quarter beat “expert” expectations by a significant margin, and the economy appears to be resurging after a slow April and May.

Cop abuse videos from New York City go viral. – As Democrat/Communist Mayor Bill DeBlasio runs around the country pursuing a vanity campaign for president, a series of videos emerged this week showing gangs of thugs in his city pelting police officers with water balloons, buckets of water and other objects, humiliating them as they cower and retreat in compliance with the Mayor’s orders. This idiotic, disgusting policy will inevitably lead to more and more aggression until police officers begin to be seriously injured or even killed. It is a repugnant display of cowardice and horrific leadership brought to America purely by Democrats.

The Squad is now fully in control of the House Democrat Caucus. – As her final action before fleeing the nation’s capital for her 6-week “August recess” (I’m old enough to remember when August only contained a little over 4 weeks) Pelosi felt compelled to hold a special meeting with the leader of The Squad, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. That meeting produced this cringe-inducing image, as Pelosi’s pasted-on smile looks to be on the verge of melting off her plasticized face:

Seriously, which one of these women appears to be actually happy, and which appears to be ready to claw the other one’s eyes out?  This is not a trick question. Having AOC and the other three raging anti-Semite Squad members fully in control of the House Democrat caucus is political nirvana for Donald Trump. These four spoiled, attention-seeking children’s antics will provide the President with a never-ending flow of fodder to toss back at the Democrats throughout his re-election campaign.

Bottom line: After the November, 2020 elections have come and gone, the President has been easily re-elected, and the GOP controls large majorities in both houses of congress, we will look back on this fourth week in July, 2019 as the week the tide fully turned.

The week was that good.

That is all.

That Day AOC Came to Texas to Create Chaos, and Succeeded

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

Alexandria Ocasio Cortez went to Clint, Texas yesterday to create chaos.:  She wasn’t there to “tour” a detention facility for illegal aliens who violate U.S. law by entering the country and make false claims of “asylum,” she was there to create chaos, create a story that would get her media attention and create outrage among her social justice warrior support base. And that’s what she did.

To fully grasp what AOC did and why, you have to go back to the fact that she is a performance artist, not a policy maker. She is an actress under the control of a radical leftist group called the Justice Democrats, led by a Saul Alinsky disciple named Cenk Uygur. Uygur and his pack of depraved anti-American radicals supply AOC with her daily scripts, and yesterday’s script needed to take place in Clint. Thus, it did.

Of course, the compliant DNC fake news media gave her exactly what she wanted – wall to wall coverage on CNN and MSNBC, outrage from all the SJWs posting at Twitter, Facebook and other leftwing mouthpiece social media sites, headlines like the one at this link all over the Internet, and dominance of the landing page at the Drudge Report. What more could a fake congresswoman ask for?

While she is the loud red mouth that gets most of the fake news media attention, the reality is that AOC is just a small spoke in a big wheel. That wheel is rolling inexorably towards the Democrat goal of destroying the most basic foundation of any free nation, which is a controllable border. The wheel’s journey begins in Central America, where Soros-funded radicals have been recruiting and paying paying people to either make the long, dangerous journey up through Mexico themselves or, even worse, to send their children along with an adult human trafficker who then lies to U.S. border officials that this is his own child. The latter scenario is becoming more and more the norm as time goes on.

We have seen wave after wave of these caravans since the first big one of them made news last Fall, the stream becoming so constant that they in fact pretty much stopped even being “news” early this year. Which of course is the goal – the Democrats want this situation to come to be considered “normal” in the public’s mind.

The other goal is even worse: To overwhelm our Customs and Border Patrol personnel and the facilities they manage.  The insane state of our immigration laws requires these officials to separate “families” (most of whom are not actually families at all) as a part the asylum process. The goal there is to overwhelm the facilities there to house all these people to create bad conditions that can then be exploited by sleazy politicians like AOC and the other 13 Democrats who participated in yesterday’s charade.

The strategy here is pure Saul Alinsky Rules for Radicals: Create a crisis – check. Exploit the crisis – AOC reportedly began screaming at and refusing to comply with CBP officials’ requests as soon as she entered the facility and the refused to fully participate in the tour of it – check. Personalize it by identifying the “enemy” and publicly demonizing them – AOC was all over Twitter last night making all sorts of outrageous claims against CBP – check.

And then finally, create enough outrage among the public that you are able to effect the “change” you desire, which for the Democrats is to fully open our southern border and turn our nation into just another third-world country. Because third-world populations, as we have seen thousands of times over the centuries, are far more-easily dominated by leftist despots.

That’s who AOC is, that is what she does, and you won’t see her despicable actions being condemned by a single Democrat today because they all share her goal. Don’t kid yourself and others by pretending she is some sort of outlier in the Democrat Party, because this is what the Democrat Party has become: Our nation’s lone true existential threat.

AOC is today’s Democrat Party’s real face, the heavily-painted face of repugnant evil in our time.

That is all.

Democrat Presidential Candidates are Killing Their Party With Honesty

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

Of course, Kamala Harris lied: She’s a Democrat. – Several readers responded to yesterday’s Campaign Update by informing me about media reports indicating Kamala Harris lied during Thursday’s debate when she claimed her elementary school class was the first to be integrated when she went into first grade in 1970.

Jim Hoft at Gatewaypundit.com dug up 1963 yearbook photos from the high school Harris attended in Berkeley, CA (because of course she grew up in Berkeley – where else?). That yearbook shows a fully-integrated class of students. Harris, as a reminder, was born in 1964.

So, she lied. She’s a Democrat, after all, and Democrats lie to get elected. It’s what they do. It’s what they have to do in order to win elections. That is as it has always been, and it is as it always will be. The moment Democrats start telling voters the truth about what they really plan to do, and the impact their plans would really have on our society is the moment their party becomes completely non-viable as a national entity.

In fact, it doesn’t even take Democrats being honest about their policies to see this phenomenon happen – all it takes is for them to begin implementing their real agenda so that the people begin to see with their own eyes what it really is. That happened when Barack Hussein Obama his own self got elected in 2009 and immediately nationalized the nation’s healthcare industry and tried to saddle the country with an economy-destroying cap-and-trade system on carbon.

Even though Democrats continued to shamelessly lie about all of that (“If you want your plan, you can keep your plan”), the blowback against the party was immediate and harsh. Voters who suddenly realized the horrible mistake they’d made in the 2008 elections went out and turned the House of Representatives over to the Republicans in the 2010 mid-terms. The gridlock that created in the legislative process, combined with the GOP nominating the feckless Mitt Romney enabled Obama to recover enough to be re-elected in 2012. But, after Obama switched tactics from legislating to trying to kill the economy by regulating it to death, we had the sea-change 2014 election in which Republicans swept to big majorities in both houses of congress, 33 of the 50 governor’s offices and full control of both houses in over 30 state legislatures.

In six short years, voters seeing the reality of the Obama agenda had relegated the Democrat Party to a marginalized, regional party concentrated in the coastal Northeast, and the West coast. The rest of the national map was a virtual sea of red, interrupted only by small blue pockets concentrated in inner cities.

Remember, Obama had to lie his butt off in order to get elected in 2008. Most people forget this, but he actually ran as a “moderate” against the disastrous John McCain, making no promises to nationalize healthcare or implement a disastrous cap and trade program. The real nature of his far-left agenda only became apparent after he was safely in the Oval Office.

This brings us to the danger in which this current crop of mediocre presidential candidates are placing their party: They are being far, far too honest with the American people about what their agenda really is. This, ironically, is due mostly to the influence that Bernie The Commie Sanders and the childish, attention-grabbing antics of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez have had on the party.

These candidates see all the media spotlight focused on AOC and all the nitwits who follow them on social media squealing for all sorts of radical, outright Marxist and anti-American policy positions, and they become desperate to fall in line like the good little socialists they really are at heart. You must also keep in mind that the vast majority of professional campaign advisors are young people (because as people mature, we tend to want to go do something actually productive with our lives), which today means Millennials. So, regardless of the age of the politician, the advice they are getting tends to skew them to the radical left.

As a result, we saw the spectacle of the two debates this week. Where Democrats in 2009/2010 said “If you like your plan, you can keep your plan,” this week they all said “If you like your plan, we will take it away from you and make you pay the healthcare costs of millions of new illegal aliens.”

And hey, those aliens won’t even be illegal anymore, because each and every one of the 20 people on stage this week also endorsed the nation-destroying idea of decriminalizing border crossings, i.e., open borders. Even more, they’re going to eliminate ICE and de-fund the Border Patrol so that everyone on earth can just swim across the Rio Grande to get their free healthcare.

Oh, and they’re going to raise all of your taxes to pay for multi-trillion dollar schemes like forgiving student loans, the Green New Deal and various other “Climate Change” socialist “plans”, Medicare for all, and on and on and on. The Commie came right out and went full Walter Mondale Thursday night, admitting that he plans to raise taxes on the middle class to pay for all of his Marxist programs. Heads nodded in agreement all over the stage. It’s never a good idea to go full Walter Mondale, people.

These Democrats are so desperate to appeal to their demented, radicalized base voters in order to win the nomination that they are forgetting the single biggest key to ultimately getting elected: Deceiving everyone else about their real intentions.

That particular Genie jumped right up out the bottle this week on national television for all to see. You can bet the Trump campaign is already rolling the video into general election ads as you read this.

For most people, the truth shall set you free. But for Democrats, the light of truth is a death ray.

That is all.

Democrat Depravity is a True Mental Illness

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

The depravity of the Democrats has now reached serious mental illness levels. – It is no longer enough for Democrat politicians to express their disdain for American values, no longer enough for them to propose programs or make outrageous accusations designed specifically to divide and Balkanize our nation along racial, sexual, religious and gender lines. The competition for that space has become so feverish that they now feel compelled to ramp things up to another level in order to attract attention onto themselves from an equally-despicable media establishment.

Thus, we see things like yesterday’s desperate effort by Irish Bob O’Rourke to reinvigorate his failed presidential campaign by proposing a “war tax” that would literally pit family against family in our tax system. And we see Lieawatha out on the hustings doing her best Oprah imitation, screaming “you get reparations! And you get reparations! And you get reparations!” to the point where you can no longer even add up the trillions of dollars we do not have that she is proposing to give away.

Image result for o'rourke war tax

For The Commie, it’s not enough to just hold a presser at which he proposes to destroy the U.S. banking system by “forgiving” trillions in outstanding student loans, he must do so while standing next to The Enemy Within, Ilhan Omar, the Poster Child for Antisemitism in America who stands newly accused by the Minneapolis Star Tribune of having married her brother in order to defraud the U.S. immigration system. The Star Tribune is the same newspaper that refused to report on that matter until she had been safely elected to congress, of course.

Image result for bernie sanders with ilhan omar

If you’re Alexandria Ocasio Cortez, criticizing the current administration’s detention centers along the southern border is not enough – you must seek media attention by comparing them to the Nazi “concentration camps” in which 6 millions Jews were murdered prior to and during World War II. And when you comments are called out by various Jewish organizations, including the American Holocaust Museum, you can’t simply apologize for having resorted to outrageous hyperbole; instead, you say you weren’t talking about Nazi concentration camps, you were talking about those other concentration camps run by …um, well…er, you know, like, those other countries or something. Like, you know?

If you’re Nervous Nancy Pelosi, simply objecting to President Trump’s plan to ramp up deportations of those who have broken U.S. immigration laws isn’t enough. No, no, you must allege that, by proposing to increase deportation efforts to, oh, say, Obama-era levels, the Evil Orange Man is scaring children. And not just children of immigrants, oh, no, because limiting it to them is probably accurate and thus not outrageous enough to attract air time from Chris Cuomo. No, the Evil Orange Man is scaring ALL children everywhere, because that’s just how powerful he has become.

Image result for nancy pelosi trump is scaring children

Then there’s Mad Maxine Waters, the worst person in America, having recently seized that crown back from Adam Pencil Neck Schiff. For the despicable dimwit from California, it isn’t enough to question the effectiveness of the Evil Orange Man’s response to Iran’s downing of an unmanned drone that was flying in international air space, oh, no. If you’re Mad Maxine looking to get your heinously ugly mug on television for a few seconds, you just grab the latest talking points of the Iranian Mullahs and parrot them for the cameras. That’ll damn sure get you on the CBS Evening News and probably on Rachel Maddow, too.

This is the ugly face of the Democrat Party today. It is demented, it is depraved and it is utterly despicable. These are sick, sick people who are destroying our society, bit by bit. They must be stopped.

The Democrat/Media “Concentration Camp” Narrative Kicks Off Right On Cue

Today’s Campaign Update, Part II
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

I hate to say I told you so, but, well, I told you so. – Way back in December of 2016, I warned readers about some of the coming narratives Democrats and the fake news media would push in their unending efforts to damage then-President-elect Donald Trump. One of those narratives I warned everyone to look out for was the narrative that the same border detention centers run for 8 years by Barack Hussein Obama his own self without a second’s notice from our fake news media would suddenly come to be characterized as “concentration camps” and “death camps” by the same fake news media and its Democrat masters.

Well, it took more than two years and the failed outcome of the Mueller Witch Hunt for them to get there, but this turns out to be the week that this narrative came to life. The kickoff event came Sunday evening when the new face of the Democrat Party, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, had a few glasses of cheap wine and decided to post this video on her Facebook page:

So, there you go: As predictable as the sun rising in the east, the latest Democrat/media narrative has been born.

Of course, the thing to remember about AOC is that she is most likely completely ignorant of the fact that Obama ran exactly the same detention center program that the Trump Administration is managing. I mean, she’s abjectly ignorant about everything else, so it’s a safe bet, right?

It’s also important to remember that the nitwit from the Bronx is also nothing but a performance artist, a puppet whose scripts are written and strings are pulled by a group called the “Justice Democrats,” which is led by a completely depraved radical named Cenk Uygur. The Campaign Update covered all of this back in March, but if you didn’t watch the video below then, take 20 minutes to look at it now – it’s a terrific expose’ about her and Uygur’s real relationship:

Now, San Fran Nan and the rest of the evil leadership of the DNC may or may not have wanted to roll this particular false narrative out at this time. But AOC has proven to be virtually impossible to control for any extended period of time, and now that she has rolled the narrative out there, the Party is basically stuck with it, whether it wanted to be or not.

As a result, we will now be seeing this kind of babbling idiot talking head become a constant fixture on CNN and MSNBC, as the fake media toadies do their duty of supporting the Democrat narrative:

It’s disgusting, it’s despicable and it is a depraved assault on the integrity of our law enforcement officials and military personnel who are doing their best to cope with a flood of Central American illegals whose “caravans” are also a form of performance art, organized by Soros-funded groups who have the same anti-American ideology held by Uygur and the Justice Democrats.

But this is your Democrat Party and its media toadies in action, folks. You continue to vote for them at your own peril.

P.S.: One other inevitable narrative I warned about in that December 2016 piece was that the Democrat/media propaganda axis would suddenly rediscover the problem of the “homeless” in our country after 8 years of pretending it didn’t exist while Obama was in office. They haven’t gotten around to blaming Trump for the teeming masses of such folks who now occupy the streets of Democrat-run cities like Los Angeles and San Francisco, but you can bet that one’s coming, too, at some point.

My guess is that the Party leaders want to hold that one in reserve for next year, when the presidential campaign is fully underway. But with the likes of AOC and Ilhan Omar going off the reservation so frequently, they may not be able to control the timing of it, either.

But again, that narrative is also inevitable – it’s like page 33 of the Democrat/Media playbook.

That is all.

A Millennial Mom’s Manifesto

Today’s Campaign Update, Part II
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

As the father of a pair of great Millennial children myself, I know that, despite all the bad press it gets, this generation is no different from mine or any other previous generation. Millennials are, by and large, good people and patriotic Americans who love this country. But like the Baby Boomers of the ’60s and ’70s, and Generations X and Y of the ’80s and ’90s, the public image painted on Millenials by our pop culture and corrupt news media is dominated by a small but very loud minority, currently personified most obviously by Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.

This week I received the piece below from a Millennial Mom who I’ve known for years. She and her husband have been friends of ours since shortly after they graduated from college. I’ve looked on as they have raised a wonderful family, advanced in their professional lives, become outstanding members of their community and just generally become great Americans. I’m proud to know them.

This is National Small Business Week, and this Mom created and runs a very successful small business of her own. She wrote this piece in honor of this special week, directing it to Rep. Ocasio-Cortez and her radical leftist bag of policies.

I thought it was so well-done that I asked if I could reprint it here, and she agreed. I bet you enjoy it as much as I did.

 

A Millennial Mom’s Manifesto

Dear Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez,

I’m writing to you to tell you that I respect you, and I disagree with you. I think you are confident, brave, fearless and beautiful. I love your dancing! Can I join in?! I admire your tenacity and bravado. We are both Millennials who love to wear red lipstick. And I think if I knew you, we might be friends.

Here’s where you and I differ: I am a young mother with three sons who has lived a life where you have to rise to the top to succeed. I joined the largest university in the country (and very liberal one at that) as a young, conservative woman who didn’t know exactly where she fit in. Yet, I assumed athletic and academic leadership positions quickly. I found my voice against the grain. I paid off my student loans  rather than hoping the government might forgive them.

When I graduated, I got a big sales job with a Fortune 500 company. I won awards and saved the money I made. I quickly realized that a strong, confrontational woman wasn’t perceived the same as men.

Did I whine and gripe? No! I moved to a more suitable company that respected women and treated them accordingly.

Have I experienced working in a man’s world? YES! But I don’t regret it. I embraced all my strengths in that world. Because even though there are a few weak & disrespectful men, there are many more strong men who respect women and know their value. I respect them, and I love what they stand for.

Now- onto your political ideals and values….

Fast forward a few years-I had three sons in four years. I sacrificed my career for my family so I could raise my boys. My husband started his masters’ degree when my third boy  was born. I’ve supported ALL of my kids & my household- all while teaching Bible studies, mentoring young girls and starting a small business. Three years ago, I bought a food truck and then expanded it to two locations. We live in a small town in Texas (which is larger than Pittsburgh), and we won customer voted awards in our second year.

If your “Green New Deal” or any of your socialist ideals get pushed through, I will close my business. Guess what happened when I opened my business? I started paying HUGE taxes- to the county, to the state, and to the Federal Government. You will lose that. I know you don’t care about my small business. But what about the 16 high school and college kids I employ every year? I’ve given many of them their first jobs and have taught them lessons in work, life and leadership. Sure, if I shut down my business, they can work somewhere else, but this is my impact on the community. I want to show my employees love and hospitality so that it extends to the 15,000 or more customers we have. I want to make money to keep us afloat, but more importantly, I want to have a business that supports its community and the amazing families in it.

Your government style will shut me down in one day- just like Obama’s ideas shut down many industries.

You’ve never run a business or a household. You don’t understand the complex nature of staying afloat in business or family. You don’t understand that a deficit can ruin you. Small business can’t survive in your world.

As far as running a family, you can’t print money. You have to live within your means and if you don’t, you’re in trouble. It’s the same in family budgeting as small business budgeting. You like locally-run businesses? Then don’t put such high demands on us and let our customers deem us worthy or unworthy – not from you in Washington. Your policies will shut down my small business and many others that are bigger and more important than mine. The town, city and state governments will suffer. They will lose the money we pay them to be in business. This is how it really works. You go run a small business and a family and then give me a genuine rebuttal.

There are a couple of things left I’d like to address… I have a large SUV and you want to take that away. It’s the only thing that helps me transport my large family and all my business supplies. I need this car to run my family and my business, but your climate “projections” are more important than my need and my choice?!? That is not what I call freedom. You tell my business to make the “sacrifice” for our climate, but so many others than just mine will suffer and shut down. I care about our planet and I do everything in my power to treat it with respect.

Let’s talk about race. I’m not a racist – not even close. I don’t see race when I see people. I see all people made in God’s image who deserve love, acceptance and respect equally. I hire every race and gender, and it does not matter what color my customers are.

But I do believe racism is real, and we need to call it out whenever it happens. It happens in Republicans and Democrats alike and all need to be confronted. I will aggressively confront it when I see it, and I will fight against injustice. But here’s one thing- don’t judge my blonde, blue eyed boys either. They didn’t choose their race or their gender or their coloring. They are innocent now, and I’m constantly teaching them about equality, respect, and love. But my boys aren’t bad just because they are white and male. They are also made in God’s image. Treat them with respect too.

Also, I love immigrants. On my street, we just had a party for my neighbor from Portugal who finalized his American citizenship. On my street alone, we have neighbors from Venezuela, Mexico, New Zealand, Korea, and even Louisiana! They all did it legally and expect others to do it the lawful, Constitutional way.

Last thing, masculinity is not toxic. Men who abuse women are toxic. And we’ve all experienced them. It’s awful. But us women have power too. We have lots of powers men don’t have and must use them responsibly also.

Toxic feminists are a thing, too. Let’s respect all people and not demonize the other gender. We need each other- in families, in business, in leadership and in life. Let’s celebrate each gender for what they contribute and call out each side when they cross the line to abuse.

I’m thankful for you and all our politicians who are bold enough to go into public life instead of private life. I have decided not to put my kids through the scrutiny that would involve. But I think you have the hutzpah and the power to affect small businesses, women in leadership, children, capitalism, and freedom for the good. I would like you to consider what freedoms you want to take away from this woman- me- a wife, mother, daughter, leader, and business owner to satisfy your social ideals. Consider my position, the small business owner’s position. We need freedom and less government interference. If we fail, it should be because we didn’t do all we could do to succeed instead of an overbearing government who shut us down because we could not bear the rules, regulations and taxes.

Thank you for sacrificing, for serving and for listening.

Always,

A millennial mother, wife and small business owner.

PS: You’re not getting my guns.

Climate Alarmists Can’t Do the Maths

Today’s Campaign Update, Part II
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Ok, look: If we’re going to have all of this incessant climate alarmism going on, can’t we at least get the numbers straight? All of this constant throwing out seemingly random numbers about when the world’s going to burn up, freeze, flood or just plain end is getting unbelievably tiresome.

Why bring this up now? Yesterday, Senator from the #ClimateScam Ed Markey told a sheep-filled audience that “Within 15 years, Mar-a-Lago’s going to be underwater for over 100 days a year, it’s going to be Mar-a-Lagoon, not Mar-a-Lago.” Clever, right? Ok, not so much.

But here’s the thing about this whole “15 years” deal: It doesn’t match anything all the other climate alarmists are saying.

The day before Markey pontificated about President Trump’s Florida property, fake Hispanic climate alarmist Irish Bob O’Rourke had this to say:

Oh. So it’s really just 10 years, huh?

But that really doesn’t conform with anything all the other alarmists are saying, either, does it?

Nope.

Last week, a Harvard scientist pronounced that we have only 3 years to save the arctic ice cap: “The chance that there will be any permanent ice left in the Arctic after 2022 is essentially zero,” Anderson said.

In January, as she rolled out her hysterically absurd “Green New Deal”, Climate Simpleton Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez told us that the number is actually 12 years: ‘The world is gonna end in 12 years if we don’t address climate change,” she said during a congressional hearing.

That doesn’t even get us to all the hilariously-wrong predictions of doom coming in X number of years from the Climate Alarmist past. Way back in 1988, Ted Danson told a congressional committee – whose membership included then-senator Al Gore – that we had just 10 years to save the oceans. Yet here we sit, 31 years later, and the oceans somehow still live.

Apparently taking his cues from Danson, Gore released his awful film, “An Inconvenient Truth”, in 2005. According to Gore, at that time we had less than a decade before the polar ice caps melted. Yet, there they still sit, 14 years later.

In 1970, the granddaddy of all the Climate Alarmists, the perpetually wrong Paul Ehrlich, told us we were headed into another ice age, and that half the world’s population was gonna starve by the end of the 20th century. The world’s population has steadily grown ever since, and a tiny fraction of people suffer from hunger today than did 49 years ago.

Now, the world’s not going to end in 10 years, or 12 years or 15 years or 100 years, and all of these Climate Alarmist hucksters are well aware of that. They’re just in it for the politics, using their fake “green” stances as excuses to push their socialist ideology.

But one request: Can’t we at least just all agree on a number? I don’t really even care which number it is – just pick one and stick with it. It would make you all far more credible, if only slightly less annoying.

Thanks.

That is all.

Tired, Exhausted and Embarrassed? Vote for Joe Biden Because He’s Just Like You!

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

George Will is tired and exhausted and embarrassed, and wrong one more time. – The Washington Post’s pet fake conservative and baggage carrier for the D.C. Establishment was so utterly, completely, abjectly wrong about every aspect of the 2016 presidential contest that you might have expected him to stay completely away from trying to predict anything about the 2020 race. But if you had that expectation, you found yourself surprised on Sunday, when the purveyor of the Inside-the-Beltway conventional wisdom slung some of that stuff out for the Post’s dozens of remaining subscribers about Creepy Uncle Joe Biden.

According to George Will – no doubt fresh from testing his talking points at his latest dinner party with the Beltway’s upper crust, all of whom listened and nodded sagely and said something like “you are so refreshingly wise, what’s in that yummy-looking croissant you’re nibbling?” – the former Vice President is “well-positioned to offer chaos-weary voters a rest.” See, George Will, a man who has spent as much time out here in Flyover Country in his adult life as Chelsea Handler has spent sober since age 14, is tired and exhausted, and he thinks the rest of you are as well. Because George Will is tired and exhausted, and all the guests at his DC dinner parties are tired and exhausted, he thinks Americans are ready to choose a president who is as tired and exhausted as they are:

“Biden, whose smile is Jack Nicholson’s without the naughtiness, is not angry. His sporadic attempts at seeming so are transparently, and engagingly, synthetic. Neither, however, are most Americans angry. Rather, they are embarrassed and exhausted. Biden has a talent for embarrassing himself, but not the nation, and he probably might seem to weary voters to be something devoutly desired: restful.”

Hilarious. Just as New York Times pet fake conservative David Brooks told that paper’s audience in 2008 that they should vote for Barack Hussein Obama – America’s Worst Mistake – because of the “crease of his pants,” George Will wants the Post’s audience to support Joe Biden because of his Jack Nicholson smile without the naughtiness or anger.

See, George Will, who coincidentally is 77 years old, mere months older than Biden himself, is not just tired, but he’s embarrassed, too. Because he and all of his DC dinner party friends are embarrassed by President Donald Trump, he expects all of you to also be embarrassed; therefore, you must want to elect an even more embarrassing president in 2020. And hey, who is more embarrassing than the creepy old guy who has spent the last half-century groping women and children at public events?

George Will proved in 2016 that he has his finger on the pulse of the American electorate just as surely as Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez understands math, and this column is just the latest in a long line of examples proving he suffers from the elitist myopia that infests the DC establishment. This is what spending every waking – and sleeping – hour inside a liberal, globalist, big-government echo chamber will do to a guy or gal.

Certainly, millions of Americans remain utterly embarrassed that Donald J. Trump is the President of the United States. We know those people as “admitted Democrats” and “Democrats who pretend to be Republicans, i.e., Never Trumpers.”

The rest of the people are the people we know as “normal Americans.” These are the vast majority of people in this country, none of whom are embarrassed at all about record low unemployment for Hispanics, African Americans and women, paying lower taxes, 3.2% economic growth and being at relative peace in the world compared to the 28 years that came before 2017.

These are the people who have normalized Trump’s often-erratic behavior internally, the people who see headlines about the latest sort-of-nutty thing the President said or tweeted and think “hey, that beats headlines about hundreds of U.S. soldiers coming back from the Middle East in body bags or congress having to extend unemployment benefits for the 27th time or a president going on his 4th or 5th global apology tour.”

But George Will doesn’t know these people – these people, who live in the vast, overwhelmingly “red” middle of our nation, never get invited to DC dinner parties, you see. George Will regularly chats with Morning Joe and Mika, not Joe and Jane Blow from Ypsilanti, and Morning Joe and Mika are tired and exhausted just like George Will.

By coincidence, the latest ABC/Washington Post poll, released over the weekend, has Biden leading the Democrat field with just 17% support. And that’s among purely Democrat voters. How 17% of Democrats is going to translate into 51% of all Americans, George Will doesn’t try to explain, other than to point to that “Jack Nicholson smile” that all of you tired and exhausted and embarrassed people out there in Flyover Country are going to settle for.

Somehow, “Vote for Joe Biden Because He’s Tired and Exhausted and Embarrassing” doesn’t strike me as a winning campaign slogan.

That is all.

San Fran Nan Cracks Down on her Rambunctious Radicals

The Afternoon Campaign Update
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Just like that, the San Fran Nan crackdown on AOC and her radical cohorts begins. – The first thing you need to know about Democrat politicians is that they’re all just reciting from scripts written for them by other people. They all put their own little trademark spins on things – Irish Bob O’Rourke and Bernie Sanders also add in their trademark hand-and-arm-gesticulations – but in effect, they’re all nothing but a bunch of talking points parrots at the end of the day.

The second thing you need to understand is that everything contained in their scripts is based on polling and focus group data. Nothing is spontaneous, nothing is extemporaneous, nothing is meant to communicate what they really believe. Hell, it’s just the opposite, really: Pretty much everything in the scripts is designed to obfuscate what they really believe and want to do to you if elected.

Only when you understand the above can you really digest and understand what has taken place over the last couple of days.

Nancy Pelosi and her fellow leaders in the congressional Democrat caucus must have gotten some very bad polling data on the antics of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ilhan Omar and their fellow radicals in the House. That’s the only way to explain the following all taking place so close together:

  • Pelosi’s puff piece interview with Leslie Stahl on “60 Minutes”, in which she was entirely dismissive of AOC and her fellow radicals, saying they amount to “about 5 members,” and going onto say that “a glass of water with a D next to it” would easily win Ocasio-Cortez’s Bronx district.
  • The announcement by AOC just before the airing of that Pelosi interview that she would no longer use Facebook and would be cutting back on all social media due to “health” concerns. “I actually think that social media poses a public health risk to everybody,” Ocasio-Cortez said. “There are amplified impacts for young people, particularly children under the age of 3 with screen time,” she said, “But I think it has a lot of effects on older people. I think it has effects on everybody. Increased isolation, depression, anxiety, addiction, escapism.” Yeah, sure, right, uh-huh.
  • The sudden relative silence from the Twitter account and gaping mouth of fellow radical leftist Ilhan Omar, who got into a furious controversy over her latest anti-American remarks that lasted most of last week.

The ongoing radical, anti-American antics by these two and fellow radical leftist freshman congresswoman Rashida Tlaib has no doubt led to some highly-negative polling data now flowing into the office of the Speaker of the House, and she ain’t happy about it.

If you really believe AOC’s absurd cover for dramatically scaling back her social media antics, boy do I have some waterfront property out in West Central Texas I’d like to talk to you about. AOC built her entire campaign on social media, and has practically lived on Facebook and Twitter since taking office in January. The same is true of Omar, who has been a near-constant presence on Twitter and in front of the nearest available TV camera since the day she was sworn into office.

San Fran Nan most likely finally had enough of these two primadonnas constantly upsetting her and the Democrat Party’s preferred daily narratives and stealing all the media attention for themselves. So she has obviously ordered them to rein themselves in for awhile and let the Party’s “grownups” – such as they are – resume control of the messaging.

Too bad – these crazy freshman kids have provided the most entertainment value through the entire political season in the first four months of the year.

Don’t fret, though: There’s no way these attention hogs can contain themselves for long. But for now, anyway, San Fran Nan appears to have exerted some semblance of control.

That is all.
