Alexandria Ocasio Cortez – the Gift who Just Keeps on Giving

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Alexandra-Beto 2024? –  It could happen, because this is just how ridiculous your Democrat Party has become.

Congresswoman-elect Alexandria Ocasio Cortez spent her Friday evening doing a livestream Q&A with her fans on her Instagram account while she whipped up a box of Kraft Mac ‘n Cheese for supper – which, not coincidentally, is also the favorite dinner for my 5 and 8 year-old granddaughters. Hashtag, irony.  I swear I don’t make this stuff up.

Anyways, one of her fan girl callers was all, like, ‘so, when ya gonna run for, like, president and stuff?’ to which Cortez licked a little of that fake cheese powder off her finger and said something like, ‘I know, right?’. The raging nitwit from Queens then went onto compare herself to Shirley Chisholm, who Ms. Cortez described as “the first black woman to ever run for president as a nominee of any major political party,” which, of course, is something Ms. Chisholm did not in fact do, though she did make very brief attempt to seek her party’s nomination for the presidency in 1972.

But, as always not letting the facts of history get in the way of a good story, Cortez stirred the boiling macaroni and continued:

“She was a congresswoman out of Brooklyn. She was also the first black woman in Congress. And people asked her when she ran for president in the 1970s…60s,” she continued while forgetting the dates and moving from counter to counter.

The socialist went on to say that Chisholm told people that she ran for president because “someone had to be the first,” saying that she knew she was “blazing a trail for.. um.. for.. black candidates.. for.. women.”

At age 29, it is no doubt a tragedy in the minds of many Democrat voters that Ms. Cortez will just be a little too young to seek the Democrat nomination in 2020, given that the Constitution itself sets a minimum age of 35 for anyone to serve as president.  But, hey, 2024 is just sitting out there awaiting a new young mental midget to become the Democrat standard bearer, and really, is there anyone out there who better represents the current mindless state of that Party than Ms. Cortez?

And hey, Beto O’Rourke will probably have $3 billion or so in the bank from all of his New York and Hollywood benefactors by then, so he’d make a perfect running mate. Plus, he probably likes mac ‘n cheese, too. Problem solved for our next woman trailblazer!

But first she needs an apartment. – Of course, Ms. Cortez must first find some place to live in Washington, DC before she can really turn her eye towards a run for the presidency, and this is presenting a bit of a challenge for a person with the apparent mental acuity of the average myna bird.

Late last week, she told the New York Times the following:

Her transition period will be “very unusual, because I can’t really take a salary,” she said in an interview with The New York Times. “I have three months without a salary before I’m a member of Congress. So, how do I get an apartment? Those little things are very real.”

Mind you, this is a person who has somehow been able to afford to wear dresses worth multi-thousands of dollars and a parade of Christian Louboutin shoes throughout her congressional campaign.  Given that it is illegal to pay for such niceties with campaign funds, a curious person – which of course excludes the entirety of our fake national news media when it comes to Democrats – might wonder where the money for all that came from.

Of course, the truth of this is really not that hard. Both political parties offer financial assistance to help incoming rookie members of congress find an initial home in the nation’s capitol, where rents are indeed quite high.

Also, as even the New York Times somehow managed to report accurately in 2015, scores of members of congress – including Speaker of the House Paul Ryan – actually choose to live in their congressional offices rather than foot the bill for a second home in D.C. or the surrounding suburbs.  These folks work out and shower at the various congressional gyms, and all of the house and senate office buildings contain cafeterias and sundry shops where they can purchase toiletries and other necessities of life.

Many other members of congress find roommates with whom to share costs of apartment or townhome rent and utilities. No doubt there will be dozens who would be happy to bunk in with someone who possesses Ms. Cortez’s obvious elementary school-level culinary skills.

For most new members of congress, this really isn’t that hard to figure out. For Alexandria Ocasio Cortez, though, spelling her own name most likely presents a terrible challenge.  Life is tough for now, but hey, she’ll be president in 6 years and everything will be peaches and cream from then on.

*sigh*

The Democrat voters in Queens have blessed us with a rare gift, folks. Enjoy her while you can.  I know I plan to.

Oh hey, and Hillary’s running again! – Democrat politicos Mark Penn and Andrew Stein have a great piece in the Wall Street Journal today titled “Hillary Will Run Again.”  No, it’s not a belated Halloween fright piece – it’s real, serious stuff, and they happen to be right: The Pantsuit Princess is going to make yet another run for the presidency in 2020.

And of course, this new run will see the Fainting Felon “re-brand” herself for about 235th time, this time as a far-left firebrand!  You know, kind of like Alexandria Ocasio Cortez only without the Mac ‘n Cheese!  Aren’t you all thrilled?

As you can see from the photo below, she’s raring and ready to go, and has a closet full of her favorite hospital gowns to wear on the campaign trail:

 

Penn and Stein believe she will easily win the party’s nomination, and they are right.  Because, Democrats.

That is all.

When Migrants are Really Crisis Actors, All Hell Tends to Break Loose

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Pretty sure this girl just isn’t right in the head.  – Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the mental midget Democrat who is going to represent the Bronx in congress after this election, is back in the news for saying something incredibly stupid again.  Because of course she is.

At a campaign event on Friday, Ms. Cortez advocated we mobilize our entire economy to fight “global warming” (she doesn’t even know that the scammers want her to call it “climate change” these days) because it is an “existential threat” just like the NazisI swear I don’t make this stuff up:

“So, when we talk about existential threats,” said Ocasio Cortez, “the last time we had a really major existential threat in this country was around World War II…And what we did was that we chose to mobilize and industrialize our entire economy and we put hundreds of thousands if not millions of people to work in defending our shores and defending this country. We have to do the same thing in order to get us to 100% renewable energy, and that’s just the truth of it.”

“None of these things are new ideas,” Ocasio-Cortez continued. “What we had was an existential threat in the context of a war. We had a direct existential threat with another nation, this time it was Nazi Germany, and axis, who explicitly made the United States as an enemy, as an enemy.”

The truly frightening part of this is not Ms. Cortez, who is just the latest Democrat mind filled with mush spouting highly confusing talking points written for her by someone else, although she does sprinkle them with an awful lot of “likes” and “you knows”.  No, the really frightening part of it is that room was filled with a bunch of Democrat voters nodding their heads at every mindless word and saying “uh-huh.  She’s right!”.  Sheesh.

And speaking of existential threats… – Phillip Reines, a spokesman hack for the Pantsuit Princess, says there’s a non-zero chance that his career criminal boss might make yet another run for the presidency in 2020.  I kid you not:

“It’s curious why Hillary Clinton’s name isn’t in the mix—either conversationally or in formal polling—as a 2020 candidate,” he told told Politico. “She’s younger than Donald Trump by a year. She’s younger than Joe Biden by four years. Is it that she’s run before? This would be Bernie Sanders’ second time, and Biden’s third time. Is it lack of support? She had 65 million people vote for her.”

Reines was referring to a poll released earlier this week that showed Biden and the Commie as the two leading contenders for the 2020 Democrat nomination, but left the Coughing Crook out of the mix.  That obviously was just wishful thinking on the part of the pollster who no doubt was thinking “surely this crazy, despicable woman won’t drag the country through all her sleaze yet again.”

Yeah, he was probably wrong about that.  Looks like we’ll have the Fainting Felon to kick around one more time.  Hooboy.

When refugees are really crisis actors, all hell tends to break loose. – A parade of 4,000 supposed “refugees” from Honduras and Guatemala that has supposedly spent the last week walking up through Central America arrived at Mexico’s southern border on Friday.  There, they clashed with Mexican national police who were waiting to confront them only because President Donald Trump had pressured the Mexican government to prevent what the fake news media is calling a “caravan of migrants” from transiting the length of Mexico.

On Thursday, President Trump hinted that he has information indicating this “migrant caravan” is not exactly what it seems:  “We’re starting to find out, and I won’t say 100 percent, I’ll put a little tiny question mark at the end … but a lot of money has been passing through people to come up and try to get to the border by election day,” Trump said during his campaign rally in Montana. Indeed, earlier that day, videos emerged of men walking among the mob of people handing out cash money to each and every one of them.

Now, take a close look at the people in photo above. What is the most remarkable thing about these people, who have supposedly spent the last week walking hundreds of miles without shelter or money?  Isn’t it that they are all healthy-looking, all well-fed-looking, all freshly-bathed with clean clothes and even fresh haircuts?  Seriously, some hair stylist is making a mint with these folks.  Do these look like “refugees” who have spent the last week at the mercy of the elements as they trudge up through Central America?

Ask yourselves: Who is paying the bills for all of this?  Keeping 4,000 people fed, bathed, clothed and sheltered for a week would cost hundreds of thousands, if not millions, of dollars.  But we are supposed to believe that these are just a bunch of harmless, destitute refugees.

Who were the people filmed handing out cash money to all 4,000 of these “migrants” on Thursday working for? Who stands to benefit from the utter chaos this caravan would create at our southern border had President Trump not prevailed upon the Mexican government to force them to turn around, especially if they arrived there just before Election Day?

Our fake news media will never ask these questions, but the answer is obvious, and I shouldn’t have to spell it out for you.  This is not a bunch of “refugees”, not a bunch of “peaceful migrants”.  Some, if not all of them are in fact professional crisis actors and professional agitators, which would explain why, when confronted by the Mexican police at the border, a riot broke out. When have we ever seen a group of peaceful, desperate “migrants” do that?

This is exactly the kind of violence that the organizers of this “caravan” obviously hoped would break out once this bunch reached the Rio Grande.  Tailor made video for the U.S. fake news media to flash up on our TV screens 24 hours a day on the weekend prior to Election Day.

Vote Republican on Election Day. This is the easiest choice we’ve ever had.

That is all.

Austin’s Equity Office Raises the Bar for Stupid

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

[Photo:  The Littlefield Fountain on the University of Texas campus.]

Thanks for the well wishes. – I appreciate the expressions of concern I received yesterday wondering where in the world the Campaign Update had gone.  I had a medical procedure that went well and am back feeling semi-lucid this morning.  So, although it’s a little late, I decided to whip this one out just to see if I can put coherent sentences together.  The Campaign Update will resume its regular Covfefe-time schedule tomorrow morning.

Johnny Carson voice:  Austin’s city government is really really dumb.

Audience:  How dumb is it?

Johnny Carson voice:  It’s so dumb that it makes Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez look like a brain surgeon by comparison.  [Rimshot!]

The City of Austin wastes tons of money every year on something it calls an “Equity Office,” which I assume must be a big thing in all the cities of California, since idiots fleeing from California have now basically annexed the City of Austin.  Austin’s Equity Office issued a set of recommendations on Friday to continue the City’s ongoing efforts to erase its history in the name of fairness or something.

Those recommendations include changing a bunch of street names, like Dixie Drive, Confederate Avenue and Plantation Road, all of which could be said by a reasonable person to be offensive.  So, were the issue left there, no controversy would exist, or very little.

But of course, the nitwits who infest the Equity Office couldn’t leave it there, oh, no.  These people have the California mindset after all, and the California mindset dictates that things like this must be taken to absurd extremes.

So, you have a recommendation to change the name of Littlefield Street on the list.  The name “Littlefield” is iconic with University of Texas Athletics.  Clyde Littlefield was UT’s track and field coach from 1920 through 1961, and its head football coach from 1927 through 1933.  His teams won 25 Southwest Conference championships, he was on the U.S. coaching staff of the 1952 summer Olympics games in Helsinki, and he founded the long-running Texas Relays, one of the most famous track and field events on earth, in 1925.

But Clyde’s not the target of the Equity Offices ire, even though he’s the only Littlefield any current Austinite has ever heard of.  No, the history erasers are after the totally unrelated Confederate Colonel George Littlefield, who in 1918 donated a bunch of money to UT to erect several statues honoring famous Civil War generals like Stonewall Jackson and Robert E. Lee.  Those statues were taken down in the dead of night on the orders of UT President Greg Fenves in 2015.  The only Littlefield-funded monument remaining on UT’s campus is the also-iconic Littlefield Fountain that resides at the south end the campus’s main mall.

So, the inclusion of Littlefield Street on this list is going to create a ton of confusion.  Here’s a thought:  Keep the name and change the dedication from George to Clyde.  But that’s too logical – this is California Thought we are dealing with here.

Then there’s the proposal to rename Barton Springs and no fewer than 10 streets named for Thomas Barton, one of the great pioneers of early Texas, who was also at one time a slave owner.  Barton Springs also happens to be one of Austin’s biggest tourist attractions – think of the massive loss of revenues the City will suffer from all the confusion a name change would create.  Pure idiocy.

But it just gets worse, folks, trust me here.

By far the dumbest recommendation on the Equity Offices list is the proposal to …wait for it….oh, you gotta wait for this one…CHANGE THE NAME OF THE CITY ITSELF!  I swear I do not make this stuff up.

Yes, friends, it seems that even Stephen F. Austin, the very father of Texas himself, is not immune from the stupidity practiced by those who follow California Thought.  This effort to literally erase the name of “Austin” from Texas’s history is based on a single sentence Mr. Austin – who suffered so greatly in his efforts to free Texas from the brutish rule of Santa Ana’s Mexican government – wrote in one of his letters.  In that sentence, he opposed the abolishment of slavery in the then-province of Tejas because if the slaves were freed, they would turn into “vagabonds, a nuisance and a menace.”

An execrable thought, no question about it.  But based on that single thought expressed in one of many  letters he wrote during his life that was filled with so many great acts and sacrifices, Austin’s Equity Office proposes to erase the man who is the actual founder of the State of Texas from the City’s history.

Here’s a better idea:  Let’s change the name of the City of Austin’s Equity Office instead.  Here are a few alternatives based on the output of the Office to date:

  • the Office of California Thought;
  • the Orwell Commission;
  • that Bunch of Really, Really Stupid People.

I vote for #3.

Just another day in you can’t cure stupid America.

That is all.

Liberals Who Broke Our Society Decry Our Broken Society. *sigh*

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Turns out liberals don’t like living by the new rules they’ve created.  Go figure. – After “Guardians of the Galaxy” Director James Gunn got dumped by Disney when it was revealed that he had issued a bunch of tweets that were at least seemingly pro-pedophilia when he first got onto Twitter 7-8 years ago, liberals all over social media wailed in protest, decrying the action.

Gunn himself claimed the tweets were all a “joke”, sort of like Roseanne Barr claimed her single seemingly racist tweet targeting Valerie Jarrett was a “mistake” about Jarrett’s country of birth.  You can believe both of them – I see no reason not to, really – but the truth no longer matters under the rules that lunatic liberals have created in our PC society.  There is no presumption of innocence anymore in the gang-dominated social media world, and though the left and the fake news media are in the early stages of attempting to “normalize” pedophilia (we see you, Netflix) in our society, they haven’t gotten there quite yet.

Thus, while a fake news host like MSNBC’s Joy Reid can survive the revelation that she is a homophobic bigot as long as her bosses stick to the fiction that she’s “a different person now”, a celebrity like Gunn can’t survive making “jokes” that seem to promote pedophilia.  Those are the rules that were invented by the lunatic left, and suddenly the lunatic left doesn’t like one of their own having to live under them.

One lefty, writing at Yahoo.com, complained thusly:  “It’s unclear what impact Gunn’s firing is going to have on Guardians of the Galaxy vol. 3 but it is clear that American society is broken and that the internet is a fetid cancer.”

Well, yes, and we all have your ideological ilk to thank for that sad reality.  Deal with it.

Speaking of our broken society, when exactly was it that the art of comedy died? – Detestable, unfunny comic Michelle Wolf issued what she somewhat questionably calls a “parody” video, in which she compares ICE to ISIS (They both start with an “I”, so they’re totally comparable, get it?  This is me, slapping my forehead.).

But hey, Michelle Wolf is exactly as funny as Whoopi Goldberg, so she’s got that going for her.

Somewhere, President Donald Trump is looking at this video and thinking “See, stuff like this is why I won.”

The Commies come to the heartland.  Hilarity ensues.  This is real comic gold. – Old Bolshevik Bernie Sanders and his 28 year-old kindred spirit, Democrat congressional nominee Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez made a trip out to Kansas to hold a rally in front of some facility packed with people who were probably paid to be there.  They were spreading their commie message of ‘free stuff for everybody until we run out of other people’s money’, i.e., “Socialism,” and also trying to prop up some fellow traveler named Brent Welder’s campaign for congress.

At one point Ms. Cortez, who has opened her mouth and proved she’s an idiot about 27 times over the few weeks since her own stunning primary win, did it again by urging the crowd to “turn this district Red!!!!”

Of course, red is the color the fake news media chooses to use to represent the Republicans, not the Democrats, on its political maps.  Oops.

But hey, give Cortez a break, because it was an honest mistake.  Commies have always been extremely fond of the color red:

Well, I nailed it again. – In yesterday’s Campaign Update, I told you the Democrat/Media axis of propaganda was about to change the subject again, drumming up some new scandal to keep their lunatic, ignorant voter base riled up.  The hysteria over Helsinki wasn’t working for them in the polls, so they would need something else to go hysterical about.

Presto change-o, by mid-afternoon, all the talking heads at CNN and MSNBC were once again talking about hookers and playmates thanks to leaks from the office of Special Counsel Robert Mueller, who the fake media assures us never leaks.  Can I call ’em, or what?

*sigh*

Just another day in Trump Derangement Syndrome America.

While Pelosi Dodders, House GOP Leaders Dither

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Hey, remember when Democrats pretended to thing “ageism” was a bad thing?  Yeah, not any more.  – San Fran Nan, the 78 year-old leader of the Democrat minority in the U.S. House of Representatives, finds herself increasingly under bigoted attack over her advanced age from her opposition these days.  The hilarious thing about it, though, is that Ms. Pelosi’s “opposition” these days comes not from any right-wing forces, but from her fellow Democrats in the House.

Turns out the youngsters in the Democrat caucus are growing more than a tad frustrated over the lock on power exercised for more than a decade now by Pelosi and her fellow House Democrat leaders, Stenny Hoyer and James Clyburn, both of whom are also well into their late ’70s.  The latest dig at the Party’s retirement home leadership came on Wednesday from 50 year-old California Rep. Linda Sanchez, who was quoted as saying she wants to be part of a transition to a new set of Party leaders.

“I think it’s time for that generational change,” Sanchez told reporters Wednesday. “I want to be part of that transition, because I don’t intend to stay in Congress until I’m in my 70s.”  Yikes.

The Democrat plan had been to a) win back control of the House this fall; b) let Pelosi then serve one more 2-year stint as speaker; c) retain control of the House in 2020, allowing the then-80 year-old Pelosi to go out on top; and d) turn over the speakership to New York Rep. Joe Crowley, who would be a comparatively very young 59 years of age.  But of course, the 28 year-old socialist community organizer Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez threw a monkey wrench into those gears a few weeks ago by defeating the hapless Crowley in the party’s primary.

So, with no clear plan of succession, a political equation that increasingly looks as if the plan to retake the House is just another fake media-fed pipe dream, and a Minority Leader who can’t remember the name of the Senate Majority Leader she’s worked with for more than 30 years, frustration among the “younger” set in the Democrat caucus is closing in on the boiling point.  And there it will most likely remain following this year’s mid-term elections, since the Democrats are well along their way in the process of blowing their best chance in years to regain one lever of federal power by re-taking the House.

Couldn’t happen to a nicer bunch of people.

Speaking of ineffectual members of congress, it’s not just limited to those on the Democrat side of the aisle.  A group of GOP leaders in the House have now spent so many weeks whining on Twitter about the stonewalling of their various committee investigations by the FBI and DOJ that they are now in danger of being remembered as little than a collection of boys who cried wolf.

Those leading Republicans are:

  • House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte
  • House Oversight Committee Chairman Trey Gowdy
  • House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes
  • House Freedom Caucus  co-Founder Jim Jordan

These gentlemen – all of whom are deserving of much respect from conservatives – have spent months now issuing subpoenas for documents, demanding witness appearances and setting deadlines that are never met while threatening to take punitive action, and then doing nothing when Rod Rosenstein and Christopher Wray inevitably give them the proverbial finger.

It was three weeks ago now that these guys – supposedly with the sign-off from Speaker Paul Ryan – threatened to pursue contempt and even impeachment action against Rosenstein if their document requests weren’t met in 7 days.  That 7-day deadline came and went – as have a long series of such deadlines since last fall – and the House has done exactly nothing in response.

The latest kerfuffle from these guys came on Wednesday, when the ex-lover of FBI Super Duper Agent Peter Strzok, former DOJ lawyer Lisa Page, simply ignored a subpoena from Goodlatte to come before his committee to offer sworn testimony over her role in the DOJ’s efforts to fix the 2016 elections in favor of Hillary Clinton.

Chairman Goodlatte and Rep. Jordan immediately took to their Twitter accounts in response:

Well, yes, and?  What?  With all due respect, gentlemen, what are you going to do?  Is this it?  At long last, has the majority party in the U.S. House of Representatives become so de-fanged, so timid under its milquetoast establishment leadership that its only recourse to open defiance of its authority by deep state officials is to issue petulant tweets?  If it wanted to, the Judiciary Committee could hold Page in contempt and send the Capitol Police to her home to place her under arrest.  Why not do that?

But given that Jordan, just a few days after going after Rosenstein in a public hearing, found himself the target of one of the most blatant deep state hit jobs in modern history, maybe this is it.  After all, the most obvious intent of going after Jordan with un-provable – and un-disprovable – allegations that he ignored sexual improprieties by a long-dead wrestling team doctor while serving as an assistant coach at Ohio State University decades ago is to intimidate Jordan and anyone else thinking about going after Rosenstein and his fellow thugs at DOJ.

If that’s the strategy, it seems to be working.

Just another day the deep state isn’t going away quietly America.

That is all.

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

The Campaign Update wishes you all a very happy Independence Day!

 

Tired of all this Winning yet?:  Wal-Mart was discovered to be hawking t-shirts with the slogan “Impeach 45” at its online marketing website, an incredibly bone-headed move by a retailer whose business is largely focused out here in Flyover Country.  Enterprising folks on social media responded yesterday morning by calling for a boycott of the company.  Within hours, management at Wal-Mart announced it was removing the social justice warrior gear from its digital shelves.

#Winning.

Yeah, this probably isn’t going to end well. – In its ongoing efforts to destroy any notion of ethical standards within its operations, management at the fake New York Times announced on Tuesday that Ali Watkins, the reporter who was sleeping with at least two sources on the corrupt Senate Intelligence Committee, has been “reassigned” rather than fired as any organization with any pride would have done weeks ago.

In making this announcement, despicable Times executive editor Dean Baquet said this:

“We are troubled by Ali’s conduct, particularly while she was employed by other news organizations,” said Times executive editor Dean Baquet in an internal memo on Tuesday. “For a reporter to have an intimate relationship with someone he or she covers is unacceptable. It violates our written standards and the norms of journalism.  After careful examination and discussion, I have decided to reassign her to a position in New York for a fresh start, where she will be closely supervised and have a senior mentor.

Given Watkins’ promiscuous past, there are two possible outcomes here:  1) she will soon be involved in an affair with this “senior mentor,” or 2) we will soon see news that this “senior mentor” has been accused of sexual harassment.

Uh, hey, Tom, we know you think that, we agree it’s true, but, uh, we’re not supposed to actually say it in public, mm-kay? – Marxist Democrat National Committee Chairman Tom Perez, in a radio interview on Tuesday, just couldn’t contain his excitement when when host Bill Press asked about last week’s primary victory for a New York congressional seat by 28 year-old socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez:

“I have three kids. two of them are daughters. One just graduated college, one who is in college — and they were both texting me about their excitement over Alexandria because she really — she represents the future of our party.”

As always, it’s real news whenever any Democrat leader accidentally admits his or her party is actually just America’s version of the Bolsheviks.

Speaking of stumbling across the truth, Microsoft founder Bill Gates had that experience on Monday when speaking at the Johns Hopkins University School of Advanced International Studies in Washington, D.C.:

“How long people live, the reduction of disease… this period since World War II has been unbelievable – the reduction in violence, the improvement in literacy, the improvement of health is phenomenal,” he said.

“By almost any metric, the world is a far better place today – less violent deaths, less disease, more education – than ever in its history…The world, he said, is “100 times less violent than it was 1,000 years ago – that is, the percentage of deaths that are violent is down dramatically…So if someone has a very negative view of the world, that’s simply not an objective thing.”

Quick, somebody get him over to CNN headquarters to spread that message, since everyone there apparently wakes up each morning believing the world is actually going to hell in a hand basket.

On this special day, if you want to thank the people who are largely responsible for setting the world on its happy course towards the freedom and prosperity that make it a better place to be, give a word of thanks to these 56 men:

John Hancock (president of the Continental Congress), Josiah Bartlett, William Whipple, Matthew Thornton, Samuel Adams, John Adams, Robert Treat Paine, Elbridge Gerry, Stephen Hopkins, William Ellery, Roger Sherman, Samuel Huntington, William Williams, Oliver Wolcott, William Floyd, Philip Livingston, Francis Lewis, Lewis Morris, Richard Stockton, John Witherspoon, Francis Hopkinson, John Hart, Abraham Clark, Robert Morris, Benjamin Rush, Benjamin Franklin, John Morton, George Clymer, James Smith, George Taylor, James Wilson, George Ross, Caesar Rodney, George Read, Thomas McKean, Samuel Chase, William Paca, Thomas Stone, Charles Carroll of Carrollton, George Wythe, Richard Henry Lee, Thomas Jefferson, Benjamin Harrison, Thomas Nelson, Jr., Francis Lightfoot Lee, Carter Braxton, William Hooper, Joseph Hewes, John Penn, Edward Rutledge, Thomas Heyward, Jr., Thomas Lynch, Jr., Arthur Middleton, Button Gwinnett, Lyman Hall, and George Walton.

These men were committing treason when they became the signatories to the Declaration of Independence.  They did so under the full knowledge and certainty that King George would literally cut off their heads if given the chance.  They risked life, limbs and family in the hopes of freeing themselves and their land from the chains of oppression and creating a new and better nation, a nation where liberty and justice would reign in place of undeserving brutes who reigned by some stupid notion of ‘divine rights.”

So, fly your flag, sing the Star Spangled Banner, cook your hot dogs and watch your local fireworks displays, but most of all, take a moment to thank these 56 men who risked everything to give you the freedom to do all those things with your friends and families today.  Because without them, Bill Gates would have given an entirely different speech on Monday.

God Bless America.

Tired of all this Winning yet? Yeah, me neither.

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Tired of all this Winning yet? Part I  – President Donald got a yuuuuge win out of the U.S. Supreme Court on Tuesday as the Court’s conservative majority – you know, the five justices who have actually bothered to read the U.S. Constitution – upheld his travel ban impacting the citizens of seven terrorist-supporting nations.  The 5-4 nature of the decision simply reaffirms the fact that the court’s leftists faction is now nothing more than an adjunct of the radical leftwing’s “resistance,” now willing to ignore decades of clear and unambiguous jurisprudence in their quest to transform the nation.  My goodness.

In the wake of the decision, until recently the DNC’s Vice Chairman, Minnesota Rep. Keith Ellison, issued this idiotically dishonest tweet:

For the record, 92% of the world’s Muslim population is completely unaffected by the travel ban.  But, as we all know, Democrats always – ALWAYS – have to lie.  It’s apparently in their genes.

 

Tired of all this Winning yet?  Part II – The Supreme Court also handed the “resistance” another kick to the gut in another 5-4 decision, this one overturning a California law that requires church-run pregnancy counseling centers to provide abortion information to their patients.  Again, the Court’s four leftists confirmed that they no longer value the freedoms of religion and speech contained in the Bill of Rights.

The preservation by a bare 5-4 majority of these key rights and presidential powers so clearly spelled out in our Constitution and Bill of Rights demonstrates conclusively how much gratitude we all owe to Mitch McConnell and the GOP majority in the U.S. Senate.  Regardless of how we feel about these mostly-RINO, establishment Republicans who disappoint us so frequently, their refusal to confirm Obama nominee Merrick Garland to replace the deceased Antonin Scalia in 2016 was a crucial moment in our nation’s history.  So thanks, all you squishy senators – you did something truly important.  Now you can all go back to disappointing us.

Joe Crowley.  Remember that name.  Who’s Joe Crowley, you ask?  Why, he’s currently the Chairman of the House Democratic Caucus in the U.S. congress, where he has served for many years as the U.S. Representative for New York’s 7th congressional district, which takes in much of Brooklyn, Bronx and Queens.  But he won’t be playing those roles much longer.

In fact, he will no longer be the congressman from the 7th district in New York after December 31, because, in a stunning demonstration of just how far to the radical left the Democrat Party is trending, this 20-year incumbent, very powerful congressman got his butt kicked by 18 percent of the vote by a 28 year-old socialist named Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.  How big of an “upset” is this?  Consider that Crowley was deemed by those who compile what we know as the “conventional wisdom” to be so safe that he had not even drawn a primary challenger in this previous 7 re-election bids.

Crowley had out-raised Ocasio-Cortez by a 10 to 1 margin in the race.  He was considered such a powerhouse within the Democrats’ demented caucus in the House that many thought he’d be the guy to replace Nancy Pelosi if she ever decides to give up her grasp on power as Speaker.  This was a guy who was going places.

Until last night.  This morning, he’s just planning on what he’s going to do after he goes home.  No one should be happy about this – as detestable as Crowley no doubt is, the juvenile Ocasio-Cortez, who based her campaign on the elimination of ICE and creation of fully-open borders, is exponentially worse.  But hey, that’s just where the entire Democrat Party is moving today.

Meanwhile, while our country’s fake news media is too busy working with their Democrat wards to dummy up another fake scandal to pay attention to anything else, there’s a revolution brewing over in Iran.  The streets of Tehran have been filled all week with growing crowds of demonstrators protesting the failing economic conditions that have been brought about by the brutal Islamic regime that has run the country for the past 40 years.

While we have seen similar uprisings in Iran come and go over the past four decades, with the Mullahs always holding onto power, this one seems different, as explained by NPR:

“Anti-government demonstrations driven by economic troubles erupted across the country last December and January. But they didn’t gain traction in Tehran. This week’s demonstrations in the capital were the biggest in years, multiple media outlets have reported.

The prevention of exactly this sort of economic uprising was the main reason why the Mullahs were so desperate to get the incredibly one-sided “deal” they received from Barack Obama and John Kerry.  That of course was Obama’s and Kerry’s motivation as well, because they’re both so dimwitted they actually bought into the idiotic notion that Iran could become a stabilizing influence in the Middle East.

Of course, the exact opposite goal is the reason why President Trump recently cancelled U.S. participation in the Iran deal:  He knows that the re-implementation of economic sanctions, which is already underway, is likely to hasten the day when an uprising like the one taking place right now ends up deposing the Mullahs for good.  Were it not for Obama and Kerry and their injection of hundreds of billions of dollars into the Iranian economy, that day might well have already come.

That’s the truth.  That’s the real Obama legacy for the Middle East.

Just another day in all this #Winning never gets old America.

That is all.
