Friday Follies: NATO, Trump Polls and New York Ventilator Madness

The only real question here is, why? – Readers will be thrilled to know that the country of [checks notes] North Macedonia is now a proud member of the NATO Alliance:

Now, God bless Secretary of State Mike Pompeo – he’s just doing his job here. But let’s be real: The reason why NATO exists is as a mutual protection pact against aggression from Russia. Is the U.S. really prepared to wage war on Russia if it should attack the nation of [checks notes again] North freakin’ Macedonia? Are we really going to expend American lives and treasure in a war to save a country that very few Americans even know exists?

And hell, let’s really get to the point: Why does NATO even really need to exist at all today? Why does the U.S. continue to spend many billions every year to protect Western European nations who are too lazy to provide for their own defense?

Yeah, I know – I’m just spittin’ into the wind here. Let’s move on.

Ventilators? What ventilators? – If you’ve been paying attention over the past two weeks, you have heard the corrupt media, along with New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo and New York City’s buffoon communist Mayor Bill DeBlasio whining to to rafters about NY City hospitals being overwhelmed and not having enough ventilators.

Well, take a look at this:

No photo description available.

That’s right: 2,000 ventilators delivered early this week by FEMA sitting unused in a damn warehouse unused. The reality is that New York politicians are playing the same sleazy game as their counterparts in Puerto Rico played, hiding massive supplies in a warehouse supposedly need to “save lives” in an effort to harm the President politically.

This is dangerous madness, and it needs to stop.

Democrat/media panic explained in two screenshots. – In today’s RealClearPolitics average of polls, President Trump’s approval average is 47.3%. On Election Day, 2016, it was 37.5%.

No photo description available.

No photo description available.

This is why the media and their Democrat masters are in such a wild panic right now. This is why New York Democrat politicians are hiding ventilators in warehouses. This is why Democrat governors in Nevada and Michigan are actively denying their citizens access to hydroxychloroquine, a cheap, safe and plentiful drug that has been proven effective in fighting COVID-19.

This is why we saw these insane displays from Democrat House members on the floor this morning:

TDS is a very real thing, folks. These people and their corrupt media toadies are losing their damn minds. What a spectacle. Somebody pass the popcorn.

That is all.

A Nation Awaits the Next Democrat/Media-Concocted Hoax

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

Tired of all this WINNING yet? – Apparently, Hollywood is. At last night’s Academy Awards ceremony – which I didn’t even know was happening until about 8:00 in the evening – the voters gave the award for Best Picture to some movie from South Korea. I’m sure it’s a fine movie, at least as far as movies go these days, but wow, the film industry in South Korea is now turning out higher-quality films than the film industry in California? That’s rather a stunning admission for the Academy to make.

Who is this Milton Keynes fellow, and how can we get in touch with him? er, or her? – Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez continues to make news for all the wrong reasons. Last week, she was in the headlines for delivering a rant during which she made it clear that, despite her claimed multiple college degrees from Boston University, she has no idea what a metaphor is. On Sunday, this claimant to a bachelor’s degree in economics said that her, like, totally favorite famed economist and stuff, or something, is, like, that whole Milton Keynes? You know? He’s like totes fleck and stuff, or something.

The problem is, of course, that no one can find any record of any economist named Milton Keynes ever actually living, at least not on earth.

I swear I don’t make this stuff up:

Obviously, the poor dimwitted soul confused the names of John Maynard Keynes and Milton Friedman, both of whom actually are famed economists, and both of whose names AOC likely had to memorize in preparation for a test or two while she was obtaining her obviously worthless “degree” from Boston U. Her handlers need to quit letting her go off-script. Every time she attempts to ad lib something, this is the kind of stuff that happens.

So, what will the next Democrat/media hoax be? Any guesses? – Now that the whole Ukraine/impeachment hoax has come and gone, we are left to wonder what new hoax the Democrats and their corrupt media toadies will devise next. In preparation for this piece, I went back through the last four years and compiled a list of the various hoaxes the Democrat/media propaganda complex has already run against the President.

Thus far, we have had to live through the following:

The Russia Collusion hoax

The Trump is Crazy hoax

The Kavanaugh Nomination hoax

The Charlottesville/”Fine people” hoax

The Porn Star hoax

The Playmate hoax

The Creepy Porn Lawyer hoax

The Emoluments Clause hoax

The Jussie Smollett hoax

The Trump’s a Racist hoax

The Trump is AntiSemitic hoax

The Ukraine/Impeachment hoax

Now, this is most likely not even a comprehensive list – I’m sure I’ve failed to mention several additional hoaxes that our despicable fake news media has worked hand-in-glove with the Democrats to concoct against this President and his Administration. This has been a never-ending, constantly-evolving process that really began as soon as Trump’s campaign was announced way back in 2015.

So, it’s obvious the Democrats have nothing else, which leads to the question: What hoax will they mount next?

San Fran Nan appeared to signal their intentions at the literally insane press conference she gave last Thursday morning in the wake of the Senate vote on acquittal. During that wildly disturbing presser, she mentioned at one point that she thought the President “seemed to be sedated” during his speech. She also spent a great deal of time trying to make the case that the current booming economy was something President Trump inherited from Barack Hussein Obama His Own Self.

Naturally, these statements led to much speculation that the Democrats and their media toadies were about to bring us a new hoax, i.e., the Trump is Drugged hoax. Or maybe they were about to leap off the cliff for good and try to go back and re-litigate the slowest recovery from a recession in U.S. history, which is what really happened during the Obama years, as that administration’s Soviet-style, command-and-control regulatory agenda choked the life out of what might have otherwise become a massive, real economic recovery following the Great Recession.

Oddly, though, there has been almost no followup from either the Democrats or their corrupt media toadies on either front. That could be because there were just too many other relevant news events to cover, as the Democrat Party committed political harikari in Iowa and the Trump Administration just kept on WINNING, bigly.

Or, it could be that Pelosi, who herself very often appears to be drugged – mostly with cheap vodka – was just engaging in a little projection during that press conference. It certainly wouldn’t be the first time that happened.

Or, here’s a thought, it could just be that the Democrats as a party have no idea where to go next, and if they’re lost, then their media toadies are going to be lost, too. That may be why, for the first time in really almost five years, the Democrat/media propaganda complex appears to be dead in the water, without a major hoax currently in play.

Regardless of the reasons behind this pause in hoaxery (I don’t think that’s a word, but I’m going to go with it anyway), we can be sure that it is only temporary. The Democrats have no choice but to keep running hoaxes at this President because they certainly cannot run on their policy record, which is non-existent during this Administration.

Lord knows they can’t leave it to their clown show presidential field to set their Party’s national agenda. The economy-and-society-destroying nonsense being tossed out into the public domain by that collection of radical lunatics, if left out there in a vacuum for the public to consume, would lead to the Democrats’ most crushing electoral disaster since 1984.

So, expect another hoax to start percolating up this week, especially after The Commie wins the New Hampshire primary. The hoaxes we’ve seen thus far have typically been started with an anonymously-sourced hit piece in either the New York Times or the Washington Post, so keep a close eye on those two Democrat propaganda outlets.

We don’t know right now what the hoax will be, but we can be certain that it is coming.

That is all.

AOC: Figures of Speech are Not her Friends

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is not a stupid woman, despite all appearances to the contrary. She is a brilliant propagandist, for example, one of the most effective our country has seen in recent decades. She understands the importance of optics, for the most part, and she understands her core audience and how utterly malleable it is. So, she is not unintelligent, and is certainly a clever manipulator.

But what so often gets her into trouble and gives her an image of stupidity is her magnificent, uncorrupted level of abject ignorance. Despite having somehow obtained a degree in economics from an accredited university, AOC is one of the most uneducated people ever to be elected to the United States Congress. Her utter lack of anything resembling a real and useful education was on stark display yet again on Thursday, when she clearly demonstrated she has no understanding of what a metaphors other forms of figures of speech actually are. Watch this clip and be amazed:

Yes, friends and neighbors, AOC really, truly believes that, when someone advocates that folks “pull themselves up by their bootstraps,” they literally mean that folks need to bend over, grab their bootstraps and try to pull themselves up off the floor.

You seriously could never make this stuff up.

Given yesterday’s revelation in a live congressional hearing, we here at the Campaign Update did a little research and discovered myriad other instances of OAC’s run-ins with figures of speech and the confusion they have caused in her life:

– She’s been looking around for that “ladder to success” for years now. She is sure Home Depot is just hiding it from her.

– She’s pissed as hell that none of those people who say they have “a chip on their shoulder” actually have, like, a chip on their shoulder.

– She has spent her entire adult life trying to find “a stitch in time” so she can “make nine.” But she’s been wondering, “nine what?”

– She once put her shoulder to a grindstone and skinned it all up. Then she tried it with her nose and had to get surgery.

– She thinks “beating a dead horse” amounts to, like, animal cruelty and stuff, or something.

– Someone once told her that it “costs and arm and a leg,” and she asked if she could just use a credit card instead?

– She just cannot believe that teeth have skin, and spends hours each day looking in the mirror to make sure hers don’t.

– She once tried the whole “rags to riches” thing, and just ended up with a bedroom filled with rags.

– She is STILL looking for that gift horse so she can look it in the mouth. I mean, like, what’s that all about anyway?

– She heard that cats had nine lives, but when she killed her own cat just to see, it stayed dead. That made her sad.

– But then someone told her it was “raining cats and dogs,” so she ran outside and got soaked desperately searching for another kitten.

This could go on and on, but you hopefully get the point by now.
She doesn’t, though.

That is all.

Edit: A couple more, inspired by readers:

– She has a step-ladder. She never knew who her real ladder is.

– Don’t ever say “bottoms up!” to her in a bar, unless you want things to get real.

The Democrat Party is in Need of an Old-Fashioned Purge

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

Guest Piece by Gregg Updike

The fundamental problem with the Democratic Party is that for decades they have been actively recruiting every disparate minority group they can find or create – most of whom have an axe to grind – and have tried to cobble together a majority of minorities as a means to win elections against America’s white majority. There was an article in a major newspaper, circa 2011, during the “One’s” ramp up for reelection in 2012 reflecting this strategy.

The DNC, Obama, and the MSM, after successfully guilting white America into voting for a “historic” (half) Black president who was “articulate and bright and clean”, realized they were in trouble after they overwhelmingly lost the House in 2010.  This was the direct result of ramming his unpopular and entirely partisan passed Obamacare down America’s collective throat, and resulted in the emergence of the TEA (Taxed Enough Already) Party, and other anti-Obama organizations.

Obama, having lost much of the warm and fuzzy good-will that swept him into the presidency, and political capital, made the decision to jettison the idea of appealing to the country’s white majority middle class (the people who Hillary Clinton would later describe as an “irredeemable basket of deplorables”).  The Dems essentially said they are no longer interested in, nor will they any longer court the white male blue-collar union base that was the strength of the Dem party since FDR.   Presently the Democratic coalition is a motley collection of diverse (root word of diverse is divide) groups which has no core unifying glue or message to hold it together except that Trump and Republicans suck, and must be politically defeated.

This cultivated strategy is beginning to backfire on them in a spectacular manner.  Their radical groups are not silent obedient toadies and actually want their point of view heard, respected, and acted upon.  Unfortunately for the Dems, many of these points of view are diametrically opposed to each other.  Examples: Muslims are vehemently opposed to homosexually, legal immigrants and naturalized citizens are opposed to illegals getting a free ride, and big banks and capitalism are lined up against Bernie’s communism.

Meanwhile, President Trump, by displaying heretofore unseen strong common sense leadership, has exposed the fraud of the Democratic Party for all to see.  He has successfully exposed them, his agenda has been beneficial for ALL Americans, and he is destroying their media and academia controlled PC thought police monopoly.  That is why he is so hated by the left and the never-Trumper Republicans, and why they are working so hard to sabotage his administration and remove him from office, or make him unelectable.  It has completely failed and made Trump’s reelection all but certain, especially when his potential opponents are considered.

Bottom line: The person who could unite the Democratic Party simply doesn’t exist, while Trump has been historically successful in uniting his Republican base and attracting many previously Democratic minority groups who have realized they have been used by the Democratic Party and are #Walk(ing) Away in large numbers.  Consequently the DNC finds itself in quite a pickle.

If I were running the DNC, I would do the following:

Let Sanders win the nomination and then suffer a 1972 McGovern-like defeat, along with massive down ballot losses, thereby forcing the radical communists out of the party – we gave you a legitimate shot and you lost bigly; now be gone and go back the Communist Party USA and be the 3% irrelevant population splinter group that you are and have always been.

(The GOP suffered massive losses in 1974 and 1976 in the wake of Nixon’s Watergate, but rebounded by 1980 with Ronald Reagan and his coattails.  Face reality, take your lumps, learn, and move on.)

Get rid of the Clintons and their toxic influence in the party.

Divorce your party from the idiotic Hollywood crowd – their influence is waning and they are every bit as toxic as the Clintons.

Purge the party of all the old fossilized war horses who appeal to no one, particularly the millennials.  This election will help in their retirements by securing long term minority status for the Democratic Party. It is not fun to be in the minority in congress and the old guard will get out while the getting is good and retire with their millions.

Find and recruit some moderate, pragmatic, appealing, and intelligent candidates who fundamentally see the good in America as founded, and run on and actually believe in a positive pro-America agenda, as John F. Kennedy did in his 1960 campaign.

While most of the congressional old guard will willingly leave once they realize their minority party status for the foreseeable future is a reality, the young radical activists in the “Squad” and other divisive factions will need to be primaried or relegated to impotence with minor committee assignments and have their campaigns defunded by the DNC.

I realize leaders of the Democratic Party will never do this, and thus they will become more and more irrelevant, which is a good thing for America.  I predict the Democratic Party brand will be irreparably damaged, and break up.  When that happens, a new party will emerge with new leadership and a new message.  It will no doubt be liberal, but it will be, at least at first, a reasonable counter to a more conservative Republican Party; a Republican Party which will also be forced to undergo its own metamorphosis and evolve into a genuine conservative party.

The media will also be forced to reform itself, or it will ultimately die with a viewership of only about ten percent of the country watching or believing them.  Sooner or later, the outside money propping them up will dry up and they will have to compete for advertising dollars by being truthful and “fair and balanced”.  To that end NPR and NPT should be defunded as they are obsolete, serve no purpose and need to be forced to stand on their own merits; taxpayers don’t need to be forced to fund a liberal-lite mouthpiece that has a smaller audience than CNN.

 

That is all.

Three Weeks to Iowa: The State of the Democrat Clown Show

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

What will we do without Marianne Williamson in the race? – The new age guru – whatever that actually means – and fantastic dancer and debater ended her doomed-to-fail campaign on Friday, and hardly anyone noticed. Kind of like when radical Texan Julian Castro ended his campaign back in late December…or maybe it was early January, I forget which and don’t care enough to go look it up.

So, the protected minority candidates keep on dropping out and the pasty old geriatric white males keep movin’ on up in the Democrat field.  How old is the Democrat field? Take a look at this photo:

That’s former Nebraska Senator Bob Kerrey. Sen. Kerrey is a Medal of Honor winner who was briefly a leading Democrat candidate for the party’s 1992 nomination, which was of course ultimately won lifelong fraud Bill Clinton. Because of course it was.

That was 28 years ago, when Kerrey was 49 years old. Today, 28 years and 7 presidential election cycles later, Kerrey is still younger than 3 of the 5 leading contenders for the Party’s 2020 nomination. This is your Democrat Party, circa 2020.

The leader in the national polls in the race to see who will lose miserably to President Donald Trump in November remains the nation’s Unfrozen Caveman Senator, Quid Pro Joe Biden. This is a guy who just secured the endorsement of Eric Garcetti, the Mayor of Los Angeles, on a day when he thought for sure he was in Toledo, Ohio.

Joe Biden is so old that he first got elected to the U.S. Senate around the time that Jimmy Hoffa was murdered by the mob. Interestingly, if you watched the 3 and a half-hour film “The Irishman” recently and thought it was overly-long, consider this: The film’s executive producer and director, Martin Scorsese, decided to leave out the part of the biographical book it is based upon (“I Heard You Paint Houses” by Charles Brandt) that details how the same mob figure, Frank Sheeran, who claims to have killed Hoffa actually also says that he helped Biden win that first Senate campaign in 1972.

Yeah, there’s a whole chapter about that in the book, which I read in 2018, long before this film came about. Sheeran claims that the mob-controlled truckers union refused to deliver newspapers in Delaware containing full-page ads for Biden’s opponent, incumbent Republican J. Caleb Boggs, during the weeks leading up to that election day in 1972. Biden ended up winning that Delaware senate race by just 3,200 votes.

Hey, Biden always said he was a union guy!

Isn’t it interesting that the makers of a film as long as “The Godfather” decided to cut that chapter out of all the chapters in the book? But hey, that’s how the incestuous Democrat/Hollywood alliance works. Just ask Harvey Weinstein and Kevin Spacey and all the supposedly abused actors and actresses who offered them both so much public praise over the last 25 years and have now gone silent about them.

So, there he is, ladies and gentlemen: Joe Biden, your leader in the Democrat race. This 77 year-old likely dementia-sufferer is the guy who the similarly demented Democrat voter base thinks is the most “electable” person in the field. Whew.

Next up is the even-older-than-Biden Commie, Bernie Sanders, who is running a fairly strong second in the national polls but leading now in both Iowa and New Hampshire. Oh, golly, think of the momentum the Commie will generate should he win both of those early contests. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez will be all like, totes excited and stuff, or something, should that happen.

Sanders’ big problem is that he just has a very low ceiling, with his main appeal being to the least reliable and most ignorant voters in the Democrat base: College students. The Commie’s support drops off dramatically as you go up the voter age chart, and the old folks are the most reliable voters in the country. Still, with the Democrats’ new system of proportionally rewarding delegates in each primary contest, the Commie remains a real threat to accumulate a lot of delegates, just as he did in 2016.

Then you have Fauxcahontas, clearly the single most blatant life-long fraud in the race, which I keep thinking means she will ultimately end up winning it. Little Princess Gonna Take All Your Wampum had a significant boomlet during August and September, but ended up fading during the final three months of 2019 as she struggled to explain how she might pay for her $40 trillion “Medicare for all” scheme without raising taxes on anyone with less money than multi-billionaires Mike Bloomberg and Tom Steyer.

But she finally ended up landing on a talking point that basically says “hey, just trust me on this, since you know I’ve lied to you about every aspect of my personal life.” Which naturally worked with the demented Democrat voter base. So now she appears to be making a little comeback, polling second ahead of the Commie in the most recent national poll from Economist/YouGov, just 5 points behind Creepy Uncle Joe. I still think Warren, as the most obvious complete fraud in the race, is the most likely nominee here barring the entry of some other candidate, like Hillary Clinton, not currently in the race.

After those top 3, you have two more pasty white guys: Preacher Pete Buttigieg and Mr. Excitement, Mike Bloomberg.

Let’s be honest about Preacher Pete, shall we? He is not going anywhere in this race, and by that I mean he is not going anywhere outside of his 6-8% polling range in which he has been stuck since last June. No matter how much fawning press he receives, no matter how many bible verses he misquotes, no matter how many free, 2-hour-long town hall shows CNN gives him, this is where Preacher Pete is stuck, at least in the national polling. That is the extent of his national appeal.

He’s doing better than that in Iowa and New Hampshire, the two tiny states packed with self-loathing white middle-class socialist voters that lead things off. Preacher Pete might be able to crest that 15% minimum threshold required to be awarded some delegates in those two states. After that, his prospects quickly become paper-thin.

Mr. Excitement, meanwhile, has now spent over $200 million of his own money on this campaign to get himself up to about 6% in the national polls, just behind the Preacher. This is what Warren Buffet and the folks at Goldman Sachs would likely refer to as a “crappy investment,” but Bloomberg seems undeterred, having just shelled out another $10 million for a one-minute ad during the upcoming Super Bowl.

Mr. Excitement’s problems in this race are myriad, but the main one is that he is simply too genuine to appeal to enough demented Democrat voters to secure the nomination: Too genuinely short; too genuinely boring; too genuinely soft-spoken; too genuinely not prone to blatant lies about his background and family; too genuinely dedicated to banning 32 oz. soft drinks and cow farts.

This man clearly did not do his homework before entering this race – if he had, he would know that every Democrat presidential nomination since 1976 has been awarded by the Party’s demented voters to the single biggest lifelong fraud in the race. Plus, if he ever does manage to qualify for one of the monthly debates, he will simply bore the country to death. Mr. Excitement will not be the nominee.

After those five, the only other candidate in the race worth mentioning is Amy Klobuchar, who is polling fairly well in Iowa and New Hampshire. But “fairly well” means about 6%, and you have to win 15% of the actual vote to win any delegates. The chances of her breaking through with a truly strong finish in either state are basically nil, and the smart money is on her dropping out of the race after New Hampshire has come and gone.

Complicating all of this, of course, is that three of those six candidates mentioned – along with Cory Booker, another minority candidate who is going nowhere – are members of the U.S. Senate. They’re all about to have the privilege of spending virtually all of the rest of January sitting quietly in the Senate chamber for 10 hours a day, 6 days a week during the upcoming “trial” of President Trump. They have San Fran Nan to thank for that, since she’s the one who set up the timetable for all of this.

While the Commie and Fauxcahontas seem to be running strong in Iowa and New Hampshire now, what do you think will happen to their polling numbers when they disappear from those states for the 3 weeks leading up to the Iowa Caucuses?

Man, it’s almost as if San Fran Nan did this all intentionally to help Quid Pro Joe, isn’t it?

Bottom line: The more time goes on, the more likely an open convention becomes for this pathetic, despicable and disloyal political party.

Considering all of these factors and more that I don’t have time to detail here, these are my current odds on the ultimate winner of the Democrat 2020 presidential nomination:

Someone not currently in the race: EVEN

Fauxcahontas: 5 to 2

Biden: 3 to 1

The Commie: 5 to 1

Bloomberg: 20 to 1

Buttigieg: 100 to 1

The field: 1,000 to 1

 

That is all.

Now the Climate Scammers are Coming for Your Homes

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

Seriously, how much WINNING can one nation take?  – Believe it or not, the NASDAQ did not close at a new record high on Friday, falling slightly to break an 11-trading day winning streak. But the S&P 500 and Dow Jones Industrials did manage new record closings, making Friday yet another banner day for investors. The WINNING truly never grows old.

The Enviro-Marxists are now coming for your homes. – As we come to the end of 2019, it is only appropriate that the radical leftist climate change lobby signals its clear intent to deprive you of yet another basic human liberty: The right to own your own home.

After all, 2019 was the year in which the insane Green New Deal introduced by the insane Alexandria Ocasio Cortez proposed to deny you the right to travel by air, own your own automobile, enjoy affordable power and home heating bills and eat beef – due to all the cow farts, you know. It was the year in which, during the summer, the climate alarmists began to mount an organized, global effort to deprive those who can afford them of any vacations that involve long-haul flights. It was the year that a George Soros-funded New York State Attorney General’s office attempted to convince a court to hold ExxonMobil responsible for knowing about “climate change” a full quarter century before anyone actually knew about it, only to be laughed out of the room by the state’s own supreme court.

So, at the end of a year such as this one, you had to figure it was inevitable that the Enviro-Marxist left would end it with yet another assault on free enterprise and Americans’ civil liberties.  Hey, it’s what these people do.

Writing at the communist publication The Nation, some urban planner from…wait for it….California – because of course this nitwit is from California – named Kian Goh is now proposing that it would be just a peachy idea for the government to end the basic American right to own private property in general, and single-family homes specifically. Because, climate change, or something.

You can tell just from reading the title of Mr. Goh’s piece – “California’s Fires Prove the American Dream Is Flammable” – that it’s going to be a smorgasbord of Enviro-Marxist fright tactics wedded to openly Marxist policy proposals, and Goh does not disappoint, oh, no. All you really need to know about the piece, in fact, is contained in the subhead that reads, “If we want to keep cities safe in the face of climate change, we need to seriously question the ideal of private homeownership.”

Oh. Sounds legit, right? Well, it does if you are a hopelessly ignorant nitwit who wants to the government to dictate every step you take every day of your life, which sadly describes roughly 40% of the U.S. population today, and about 90% of the employees in the nation’s corrupt news media.

I’m old enough to remember when leftist Democrats pretended to be all for individual rights to home ownership. That was waaaayyyyyyyyyyyyy back in the…wait for it … 1990s when Bill Clinton was forcing Fannie May and Freddie Mac to give mortgage loans to pretty much anyone who wanted one, even to those who manifestly could not afford them. Because, fairness, or something. That, by the way, was also the administration of Vice President Al Gore, the scam artist who has profited perhaps more than anyone on earth from pushing the climate scam during the 21st century.

But that’s all changed now and Mr. Goh is the new left’s poster child. Goh’s basic thesis is to use the issue of California wildfires as a tool to attack private housing. He is especially against building individual homes in rural areas, basically because they’re, er, flammable. Oh, yeah, and he’s also opposed to – you’ll never guess – “cheap energy”, i.e., affordable utility bills:

The growth of urban regions in the second half of the 20th century has been dominated by economic development, aspirations of home ownership, and belief in the importance of private property. Cities and towns have expanded in increasingly disperse fashion, fueled by cheap energy.

His proposed solution is, of course, less individual freedom, replaced by government command-and-control, i.e., Marxism:

To engage with these challenges, we need to do more than upgrade the powerlines or stage a public takeover of the utility companies. We need to rethink the ideologies that govern how we plan and build our homes.

Next, he plays the race card in a transparent attempt to curry favor with minorities:

In and around so many cities, new building technologies, racist lending practices, systemic criminalization of the poor and people of color, and uneven patterns of “creative destruction”—that is, cycles of investment and disinvestment across city centers and suburbs—favored one kind of residential development: single-family houses for those deemed qualified, which typically meant white, middle-class families.

So predictable. So tiresome. So utterly Alinskyite.

The next step in this paint-by-the-numbers leftist climate alarm piece is of course to blame the fires on “climate change” even though the frequency and intensity of U.S. forest fires has in fact fallen since all the climate alarmism as a stalking horse for Marxism began in the late 1980s:

The valorizing of homeownership and property rights results not only in increased exposure to climate-change-fueled fires, but also in our inadequate responses to them.

Then he goes on to signal the next step to come in this Enviro-Marxist campaign to deprive Americans of their rights: The assault on individual rights to own homes on the coast:

Discussions have surged over the last two years about the need for coastal communities to retreat further inland as they face rising sea levels—a seemingly more imminent threat. How should we broach the more uncertain risks of fire?

This dude has your future all planned out for you, you just don’t know it yet.

And here comes the money paragraph, the paragraph in which Goh very predictably exposes himself as a supporter of The Commie, Bernie Sanders, who has chosen to enlist Alexandria Ocasio Cortez and her Green New Deal as his campaign’s mascot:

There are other options, in theory: Rental housing serves many cities around the world well, although we should be wary about perpetuating the power of landlords in this country without delinking ownership from wealth creation. There has been resurgent interest in government-planned and -built public housing, including recent legislation proposed by Ilhan OmarAlexandria Ocasio-Cortez, and Bernie Sanders that would shore up and invigorate the federal system. The Green New Deal invokes prior eras of government intervention, lending itself to revitalized thinking about the social value of public goods.

The Climate Scam always has been and always will be a stalking horse for the global implementation of Marxist-style socialism. Every suggested “solution” ever offered by any adherent to Climate Change religious dogma has, without exception, involved a Soviet-style command-and-control central government depriving individuals of their rights and prosperity.

The right to own personal property was enshrined by the founders of this country because they understood that it was a crucial tool in maintaining personal freedom. As such, it should surprise no one that the climate scammers would seek to deprive Americans of that key right, along with their liberty and pursuit of happiness.

They are telling you everything they want to do to you, folks – all you have to do is read and listen.

That is all.

Woman Takes Green New Deal to Logical Conclusion, AOC Doesn’t Even Blink

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

“Eat the babies” is trending on Twitter this morning. You’ll never guess why. Ok, maybe you will. – In case you were not already aware that climate extremists are brainwashed religious cultists with severe mental and emotional issues, check out this clip from Wednesday evening’s town hall meeting in Corona, New York, hosted by Democrat organ grinder monkey Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez:

In case you can’t understand everything the woman is saying through her heavy accent – which might be real or could be feigned – here is a transcript of her wild remarks:

“We not gonna be here for much longer, ’cause of the climate crisis. We only have a few months left! I love that you support the Green Deal but it’s not, but it’s not gonna, getting rid of fossil fuel is not gonna solve the problem fast enough! A Swedish professor saying we can eat dead people [takes off jacket] but that’s not fast enough! So I think your next campaign slogan has to be this, “We got to start eating babies!” We don’t have enough time! There’s too much CO2! All of you, you, you a pollutant! Too much CO2! We have to start now. Please, you are so great, I’m so happy you are supporting New Green Deal, but it’s not enough, you know. Even if we would bomb Russia, we still have too many people, too much pollution! So we have to get rid. of. the babies! That the big problem – just stop having babies is not enough! We need to eat the babies! And this is very serious, please give a response!”

Now, this person clearly is either a complete lunatic who is a danger to herself and everyone around her, or she is one of the greatest political pranksters of all time. Either way, any rational, thoughtful individual who values human life would have this person escorted by security out of the meeting and asked to leave the premises. That is certainly what any Republican member of congress would do, and rightfully so.

But not AOC, who herself is an utterly irrational, brainwashed climate lunatic. Watch the clip again and observe how the dead-eyed congresswoman is actually empathizing with this woman as she goes through her deranged rant. Watch how AOC nods her head in agreement as the woman repeatedly advocates for eating babies as a means of reducing CO2 – the very foundation for life on Planet Earth – in the atmosphere.

Then listen how AOC responds once the woman is done. Listen as she expresses neither condemnation nor abhorrence at the repulsive concept of actually consuming human children for breakfast, lunch and/or dinner. If you have trouble hearing the conversation, here is an exact transcript of AOC’s response:

“Thank you, thank you. We’ll go ahead [crazy woman interrupts] No, we’ll go ahead. Thank you. So, I think [woman interrupts again] Yeah, no, so, um, one of the things that’s very important to us is that we need to treat the climate crisis with the urgency that it does present. Um, luckily we have more than a few months. We do need to hit net zero [CO2 emissions] in several years, but I think we all need to, to, to understand that there are a lot of solutions we have, um, that we can pursue, and that if we act in a positive way there is space for hope.”

Oh, ok. So, given that we have more than a “few months” to do, no one knows what, exactly and AOC isn’t saying, we don’t need to start eating the babies…yet. Because, hey, there are a lot of “solutions” we can pursue, other than, presumably, eating the babies. And every one of those “solutions” involves Soviet-style programs designed to deprive you, the common people of America, of things you take for granted in your daily lives today.

You know, things like cars, and meat, and air travel, and straws, and mobility, and grocery stores whose shelves are stocked with food items. No more gas stoves, no more warm homes in the cold winters. No more reliable electricity, especially when the wind stops blowing and the skies grow cloudy. Those vacations you like to take? No more of that, you human pollutant, you!

Oh, and those TVs, computers and cell phones will all have to go, too, since they all contain many, many parts that are made from plastics, which are derived from petroleum. You know, that dirty “fossil fuel” that has been responsible for global prosperity for the last 120 years or so.

Ditto those fancy tennis shoes you like to wear and the backpacks you use to carry all your stuff around in, for the same reason. Toothpaste? You have to give that up to the jack-booted thugs who will come to your home to confiscate all the bad items you own. Same with your makeup, ladies and odd gentlemen – it’s made with the bad stuff, too.

No, in AOC’s world, we don’t have to “eat the babies” just yet, at least, not until you’ve surrendered all of those things and many, many, oh, so many more. Once you’ve done all of that, and the fake climate “scientists” have gauged the impacts of your living an 18th-century lifestyle on the climate, then and only then will we have to decide whether we need to start eating the babies if AOC has her way.

Call it the “final solution” of the Global Church of Climate Change.

Again, this woman is either as straight-up insane as AOC is, or she just pulled off one of the great political pranks of all-time. Either way, what she did at that town hall  was to simply take the ghoulish logic of climate extremism to its inescapable conclusion.

And AOC, the poster child for climate extremism in America, didn’t really even blink.

These people are ghouls.

That is all.

The D. C. Swamp Strikes Back! Ratcliffe Out…Hoekstra In?

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

Tired of all this #Winning yet? – Another month, another sterling jobs report. The private sector beat “expert” expectations yet again by adding 164,000 new jobs during the month of July, finishing the month with an all-time record 157,288,000 Americans gainfully employed. Even more encouraging is the fact that almost 400,000 Americans moved from the part-time jobs that characterized the Obama economy to the good-paying full-time jobs that are the centerpiece of the Trump economy. This truly never, ever gets old.

She’s gonna need some new script-writers. – The Chief of Staff and Communications Director for Anti-Semite Democrat Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez both resigned late on Friday under ongoing pressure from San Fran Nan and her house leadership goons.

The two Alinskyite lunatics, whose names I’m not going to specify on this site (AOC’s is enough work to expend on these garbage people for one morning) had come under fire last month after the Chief of Staff had accused Pelosi of “singling out women of color” and a referred to non-Marxist Democrats as segregationists.

Both men came to AOC from the despicable “Justice Democrats”, the group that supplies the fake congresswoman with her daily scripts. Their vacant positions will no doubt be filled with more staffers who have been trained by that anti-American Alinskyite group. As we have repeatedly seen, AOC is utterly helpless and sounds like a slow-learning 4th-grader whenever she attempts to speak without reciting from those daily scripts, so an injection of new blood from that group is essential for her continuing charade.

The Swamp Strikes Back! – D.C. Swamp rats from both political parties have won the first parry in the battle to replace the fired Dan Coats as the new Director of the Office of National Intelligence. Texas Congressman John Ratcliffe withdrew his name from consideration for the post yesterday amid a growing slime campaign in the national fake news media and ongoing behind-the-scenes opposition from GOP swamp rats like North Carolina Senator Richard Burr.

The Swamp Rats are now pushing hard to convince President Trump to nominate Coats’s Swampy Deputy, Sue Gordon, to become the new acting director when Coats leaves the post on August 15. Gordon has received endorsement tweets from an array of Deep State Usual Suspects in recent days, including Adam Schiff, John Brennan, James Comey and Rod Rosenstein, so you know she is someone who would do everything she can to block efforts to get at the cabal who attempted to fix the 2016 election and then tried to execute a coup d’etat throughout 2017 and 2018.

The fake news media is of course mounting a focused campaign to pressure the President to appoint Gordon to the post on a permanent basis. If he does that, then you can forget about any meaningful declassification of key documents taking place, as Gordon would be able to use her post as a roadblock.

The problem the President has is that the Swamp has now laid down its marker related to this crucial position as a hill on which it is willing to die, and there are half a dozen or more fake Republicans like Burr who are willing to help lead that battle. So, in order to get anyone confirmed in the Senate, where the Republicans hold a 53-47 majority, he is going to have to nominate someone with credentials that include experience in or around the nation’s seamy intelligence community.

The good news there is that the Wall Street Journal reported late Friday evening that Mr. Trump is considering former Michigan Congressman and current U.S. Ambassador to The Netherlands Pete Hoekstra as his next nominee for the post. How would Hoekstra fit the Swamp’s criteria? Well, as an early Trump supporter during the 2016 campaign, he wouldn’t.

But here’s the thing: Hoekstra is a former Chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, a post he held from 2004 through 2007. That little item on his resume would rob the Deep State hacks of the argument – which they used against Ratcliffe this week – that he lacks an understanding of the nation’s intelligence operations.

Hoekstra not only understands those operations, as former Chairman of that committee, he knows where all the bodies are buried. Nominating Hoekstra might be another Trump masterstroke.

As President Trump likes to say, we’ll just have to wait and see what happens.

That is all.

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:

Image result for pelosi meets with aoc

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.
