Why Joe Biden Won’t be the Nominee

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

People keep telling me that I’m really going out on a limb with my all-but-guarantee that Joe Biden will not be the Democrat nominee in 2020. The truth is that that is the safest prediction I’ve made about this race.

The history of presidential politics is littered with the rotting carcasses of early favorites in contested presidential nominating battles who ended up being left behind when the actual convention rolled around.

Remember 1972 Democrat nominee Edmund Muskie? Yeah, neither do I. Well, I sort of remember Edmund Muskie, who was the party establishment’s favorite as the campaign season began, but Democrat voter base, radicalized by the hippie movement moving into adulthood and the early reports of the Watergate scandal, were looking for a much more radical alternative that year. Ultimately, the party presented closet Marxist George McGovern to the country, and an electoral slaughter of epic proportions ensued, despite the media’s best efforts to destroy Richard Nixon.

Sound familiar?

What about 1976 Democrat nominee Morris Udall, the early polling leader and establishment favorite? Or nominee Birch Bayh, who won the Iowa Caucuses? Remember them? No? Well, it turned out that Democrat voters that year weren’t in the mood to nominate some old DC swamp creature, which you are going to soon discover is a very common theme in this essay. Instead, they wanted a fresh face, and ended up saddling the country with Jimmy Carter, who at the time was the freshest face we’d ever seen.

Yeah, that didn’t work out well, did it?

Remember when early polls told us that Ted Kennedy was going to beat Carter for the nomination in 1980 after Carter’s disastrous term in office? Remember when that didn’t happen, either?

Guess who the early polling leader for the nomination in the 1984 race was? Remember how Gary Hart won that year’s nomination? No? Neither does anyone else. That year, the now-ageing hippies passed the party’s baton to old swamp  creature Walter Mondale, and the result was the largest electoral landslide loss in American history.

Ok, what about 1988 Democrat nominee Mario Cuomo? Remember him? After a raft of polls in mid-1987 showed Cuomo would be a big leader in the nominating battle, party leaders tried to recruit him to get into the race. But Cuomo, knowing the scrutiny that would bring into his shady background, refused to take up the baton.

Well, what about 1988 nominee Gary Hart, who again led all the polls once Cuomo refused to run? No? Hart might actually have prevailed in the race that year had he not dared the media to “follow me around” after allegations arose that he was having an affair. For once, the media actually did its job where a Democrat was concerned, and photos of Hart cavorting on a boat with Donna Rice were soon made public. So, we ended up with Michael Dukakis and another electoral landslide instead.

Then there’s 1992 Democrat nominee Paul Tsongas, or 1992 Democrat nominee Jerry Brown, or 1992 Democrat nominee Bob Kerrey, all of whom were leaders in early polling in the race. But then this guy Bill Clinton played the saxophone on the Johnny Carson Show, and shallow Democrat voters had their man!

In 2000, it was Al Gore all the way as the Democrat voter longed to give the country a third Clinton term. That didn’t happen, either.

Then there’s 2004 Democrat nominee John Edwards. Yet another early polling leader flame-out due to Gary Hart-like circumstances. He was succeeded by 2004 Democrat nominee Howard Dean, who surged into a polling lead late in 2003. But he came up a crapper with a third-place finish in Iowa, and the nomination ended up going to the disastrous John Kerry.

Finally, I give you 2008 Democrat nominee Hillary Clinton, the overwhelming leader in every early poll in the race, and the woman who eventually…flamed completely out after Barack Hussein Obama his own self caught fire.

Democrat voters are fickle, folks. In every cycle, the party’s leaders always try to push a favorite candidate, and that favored candidate is usually rejected. The lone exceptions to this dynamic in modern times have been Walter Mondale, Al Gore and Hillary Clinton, all loooooooooosers. In 2016, the party’s leaders went so far as to actually rig the primaries in Clinton’s favor, and Obama and his evil minions did everything they could to rig the general election in her favor, and she still lost.

The Fainting Felon’s attempt to saddle the nation with a third Obama term was a miserable failure, and now here is Joe Biden, trying to execute the exact same failed strategy four years later. But Biden’s trying to do it before a party voter base that has been radicalized to the point of insanity, and the primary voting is going to be dominated by the most radicalized among them.

Every nominating battle has its own unique set of dynamics, of course, and the party bosses have set the process up this time to encourage a hung convention at which they will ultimately get to choose the nominee. Maybe that will work out for them, but if it does, history tells us that they will choose a loser.

But back to the point about Joe Biden: History also tells us that the early leader in the polls almost never ends up winning the nomination. I’m not out on a limb at all on that one, and I think I’ll stick to it.

That is all.

About That January 6 Meeting Barr Referred To…

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

In my rush to get a partial transcript of William Barr’s interview on Fox News this morning posted up, I failed to include any explanatory notes. I thought it was more important to get the information out there for those who don’t have access to a TV during a workday than to take time for an analysis, particularly since the great majority of what Barr had to say is self-explanatory. But this has created confusion with some readers, particularly related to the “January 6” meeting to which Mr. Barr refers in the passage below:

Hemmer: Republicans have said for months that Brennan, Clapper, maybe Comey have had it in for Trump. Do you believe that’s the case?

Barr: “Again, I’m not gonna speculate about their motives.”

Hemmer: In the period between election day and the inauguration, did anyone in government take action to justify their decisions?

Barr:I think there were some very strange developments during that period – that’s one of the things we want to look into. Such as the handling of the meeting on January 6 between the intelligence chiefs and the President and the leaking of information subsequent to that meeting.”

Hemmer: Was that meeting in New York City? In Trump Tower?

Barr: “Yes.”

Hemmer: What questions do you have about what happened that day?

Barr: [smiling] “Again, I’m not gonna get into that. It’s one of the things we need to look at.”

[End]

Here is a video of the full Barr Interview for your viewing pleasure:

 

Ok, so, what “January 6” meeting is he talking about, and why is it important? Well, it’s very important, and the fact that Mr. Barr is focused on that meeting to the extent that he gives it specific mention in this interview is very telling.

The meeting in question took place on January 6, 2017 at Trump Tower in New York City. The ostensible purpose of the meeting was to give the then-President-elect a full “intelligence briefing” from the Obama Administration’s senior intelligence advisors.

Backstory:

  • Less than a week before, either the New York Times or Washington Post – I forget which and does it really matter? – had run a hit piece claiming Trump was going to come into office unprepared because he had yet to accept this meeting. Trump famously stated that he did not need to be briefed by these skunks “because I’m smart.”
  • It is key to remember that by that time, Trump already knew that the Obama flunkies had been spying on his campaign and transition team, because NSA Director Mike Rogers had informed him of that reality shortly after Election Day. The briefing from Rogers prompted Trump to move his transition headquarters out of Trump Tower to a nearby resort property he owns.
  • This no doubt enraged James Comey, James Clapper and John Brennan, and they redoubled their efforts to press Trump for this “briefing” meeting. Trump finally relented and scheduled the meeting for January 6.
  • Present for the meeting were FBI Director Comey, CIA Director Brennan, Rogers and a representative the Office of Director of National Intelligence.  Clapper was then the DNI, but was not at the meeting personally. This is important, so remember it.
  • It was at this meeting that Comey informed Trump of the existence and basic content of the infamous Steele dossier, which by this time had already been used twice as the almost-sole justification for FISA warrants to spy on Trump officials.
  • Comey and Brennan have publicly argued in recent days about which of them insisted upon including this bogus dossier in this meeting – neither of them wants to accept responsibility for that decision, probably due to all the speculation that it was used in order to frighten and intimidate the incoming President.
  • Also remember that Trey Gowdy told Fox News last week that Comey and Brennan created an email trail leading up to this meeting that Gowdy believes will be incredibly damaging to both men once it is revealed.

Other key points here:

  • The January 6 meeting came a day after Comey, Brennan and Clapper, and reportedly Deputy AG Sally Yates as well, had briefed President Obama and AG Loretta Lynch. What do you suppose was discussed at that meeting?
  • Comey testified to congress that his “mission” – his word – for the Jan. 6 meeting was to let Trump know about the existence of the Steele Dossier. Who gave him that “mission”?
  • Comey testifed under oath that the reason he did not inform Trump that the dossier was – in Comey’s words – “salacious and unverified” in this meeting is because it was “not my mission for this meeting.”  Again, who gave him that “mission”?
  • Important to note here that above Comey in the Obama Administration’s pecking order sat Loretta Lynch, Brennan, Clapper, Yates and Barack Hussein Obama his own self. Any of those folks had the authority to assign Comey that “mission” for the Jan. 6 meeting.
  • We know that Comey left that meeting, called Clapper and said “Mission accomplished.”
  • Later that day, we know that someone leaked the contents of the Steele Dossier to CNN and CNN began reporting on its existence. Speculation here is that CNN actually already had the dossier in-hand well before that, but insisted it wasn’t news-worthy unless the incoming president had been informed of its existence. [“Mission Accomplished.”]
  • Shortly after that, Clapper was rewarded with a big contributor’s contract by CNN. CNN actually won awards for its fake reporting on the fake dossier.

Given all of that, does it make more sense to you when you see William Barr say this?:

I think there were some very strange developments during that period – that’s one of the things we want to look into. Such as the handling of the meeting on January 6 between the intelligence chiefs and the President and the leaking of information subsequent to that meeting.”

That’s why the Jan. 6, 2017 meeting at Trump Tower is a very, very important event in all of this. You unwind the discussions within the Obama Administration cabal that took place in advance of and right after that meeting, you have the key to the entire scheme.

The Democrats Won’t Stop the Madness Until They’re Stopped

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

Several times a week, I get some variation of this question: “When are the Democrats going to stop all of this madness?” – The simple answer, of course, is that they aren’t. The behavior of the leaders of the Democrat Party and their toadies in the fake news media is only going to become increasingly radical and unhinged until they are stopped.

Many had thought – hoped – that their despicable daily behavior would calm down somewhat after the Mueller Witch Hunt had shut down and exonerated President Donald Trump. That obviously didn’t happen, and the Democrats and their media toadies did what they always do: Double-down on deception.

Attorney General William Barr released a 95% un-redacted version of the Mueller Report, and the Democrats screamed “cover-up!” Then he made 99% of the Report available to all Democrat members of congress, and they screamed “cover-up!” Then he spent a total now of more than 20 hours testifying before various congressional committees about it, and the Democrats in the House decided to hold him in contempt for telling the truth and refusing to break the law.

If this doesn’t strike you as normal behavior, that’s because it is decidedly abnormal behavior.

As we’ve said many times before here at the Campaign Update, nothing the Democrats do is normal or organic. Everything they do and say in public is pre-planned, coordinated with their media toadies, and highly scripted, all designed to reflect their narrative of the day. This is why Rush Limbaugh is able to cobble together those hilarious montage clips of dozens of Democrats/talking heads/fake reporters using exactly the same words on some given issue 2-3 times every week. He could do it every day if his staff had the time.

Yesterday’s narrative, for example, was “we’re in a constitutional crisis,” which happens to be true since the Democrats, led by San Fran Nan and Jabba the Nadler, have worked very hard over the past couple of months to create such a crisis out of whole cloth. After his committee held its kangaroo court vote to hold Barr in “contempt of congress” Wednesday afternoon, Nadler promptly rushed to the nearest camera to declare that “we are in a constitutional crisis.”

As if on cue – because it was on cue – every Democrat spokesman on TV, every fake host on CNN and MSNBC, every news anchor on the major networks and every political writer at the major fake newspapers began using those exact words in all of their reporting. This narrative continued through Thursday as well, along with the incredibly stupid non-story about Trump’s losing a bunch of money back in the 1980s/early 1990s, a story he told himself in his book “The Art of the Comeback” and on his TV show “The Apprentice.”

To understand why they behave the way they do, you must understand the Democrat hive-mindset. Simply put, Democrats believe they are entitled to political power. They believe they are smarter than you are, they believe they are more moral and caring and compassionate than you are, and because they believe those things, they also believe they have the right to tell you how to live your lives.

Just a decade ago, they thought they had consolidated that power and the ability to dictate everything you do every day on a permanent basis. They’d just elected America’s Worst Mistake, Barack Hussein Obama, and empowered him with massive majority control of both houses of congress. They had shoved through a massive fake ‘stimulus’ package designed to nothing but expand the scope and scale of an array of federal regulatory agencies, had their EPA working on regulating your drainage ditches and backyard ponds, had their congress extending those 6-month unemployment benefits to a near-permanent entitlement, and were working on a cap and trade system on carbon that would bankrupt whatever was left of Obama’s economy and a bill to nationalize the nation’s healthcare system.

All was bliss and kisses in Democrat fantasy land. It was 2009, and the narrative then, repeated endlessly by all the talking heads and fake reporters, was that the Democrats now had created a “permanent majority” in our country, and America was thus entering its “new normal.”

And here’s the thing that has the Democrat so perpetually enraged today: They believed their own bullshit. (Pardon my language.) They do that all the time, actually – see the whole “Russia Collusion” fantasy play as the latest grand example.

But they are all so enraged today – and become more enraged with each passing hour – because they still believe that bullshit. They still believe they are the chosen ones, the ones to dictate to all you little people out there in Flyover Country, the ones who are entitled to power.

That’s the mindset that led Barack Obama and James Comey and John Brennan and Peter Strzok and Andrew McCabe and Sally Yates and all manner of other high Obama officials to engage in a plot to fix the 2016 elections and then to try and fail to execute a coup d’etat on American soil. They did all of that because they really, truly did believe they were entitled to do it, and that the Pantsuit Princess was entitled to the presidency.

They created Antifa, a violent terrorist organization, in response to Trump’s election because they believe they are entitled to power. They created the Mueller Witch Hunt because they believe they are entitled to power. They’ve created this constitutional crisis because they believe they are entitled to power.

Between today and November 2020, they will continued to ramp up the insanity and violence because they believe they are entitled to power. And after Donald Trump is re-elected, the Democrats and their media toadies will still continue to ramp up the insanity.

Until someone stops them. Until the people who committed all of these bad acts start being prosecuted and going to prison. A lot of them. And if that never happens, if the day never comes when they know they will be subject to prosecution for committing these seditious, treasonous acts against our country, the Democrats and their media toadies will keep ramping up the insanity until they have whipped our nation into another civil war.

These are not people who can be reasoned with, because they are not rational people. They must be defeated and they must be stopped. If William Barr and the Department of Justice are not up to this task, then God help us.

That is all.

The Week in Review: A Real Attorney General Sends the Democrats and Media into a Panic

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

[The week just past as chronicled on the @GDBlackmon Twitter feed.]

The week began with the New York Times running a heinously anti-Semitic cartoon on its op-ed page, a day in advance of another synagogue shooting. Things only went downhill from there for the fakest newspaper in America.:

President Donald Trump informed us exactly why it was that Fox talking head Andrew Napolitano turned on a dime to become a Trump hater in early 2018. The reasons aren’t pretty, but then, neither is Judge Nap.:

International superstar Nick Searcy remembered that one time when Creepy Uncle Joe Biden actually told the truth about something. Good times…:

If you aren’t following the Babylon Bee on Twitter, you’re missing out on all the fun.:

I invented a new, totally appropriate campaign slogan for Joe Biden.:

Your Democrats in action!:

Oily Rod Rosenstein submitted his formal resignation letter to President Trump, the guy against whom he organized a coup d’etat effort and failed. He’s the Benedict Arnold of our time.:

A day after President Trump spoke to a crowded arena with 12,000 people inside and that many more outside watching on the big screens, Joe Biden became the latest Democrat to speak to a half-filled high school gym.:

By the way, if you’re also wondering why it is that Democrat candidates are obsessed with high school gyms, the answer is simple: They’re free, almost always run by fellow Dems, and come with a built-in audience of students who are forced to attend. Simple.

The foundering Irish Bob O’Rourke tried to attract media attention by making yet another outlandish claim. No one could’ve seen that coming, right?:

The Trump White House was working on designating a terrorist organization as a terrorist organization. There’s another obvious target just waiting out there for a designation of its own.:

Bernie Sanders won’t even have to go into a prison to get this obvious supporter’s vote.:

The fake news media had a very, very busy week trying to set narratives for Barack Obama’s deep state spying and coup attempts.:

There was a revolution going on in Venezuela, and you had to go to Twitter to get any real coverage of it. Why? Because our fake news media was too busy carrying water for Democrats.:

Patricia Arquette was testifying to congress in an effort to get congress to give her what she already has. Your mindless leftists in action.:

Poor widdle Bobby Mueller had the sads about the bad news coverage he’s been getting, so he wrote a nasty note to the teacher…:

If you thought the shutting down of the Mueller Witch Hunt means the end of the Deep State’s assault on our country, you need to read this.:

William Barr gave some epic testimony to the Senate Judiciary Committee on Wednesday.:

More epic Barr…:

More epic Barr…:

The Democrat toadies at CNN were going nuts, but to no avail.:

Meanwhile, over in the House, Jabba The Nadler was trying to get control over his evil minions. It wasn’t working out well.:

Mayor Pete was looking for a new role model. He’s landed on a very, very bad one.:

Back in the Senate, the Dragon Lady was making a demented fool of herself one more time. Do better, Hawaii. We know you can.:

MSNBC responded to Barr’s devastation of the Democrats by running the most notorious serial liar since Dan Rather out in front of the cameras to smear Lindsey Graham. You seriously cannot make this stuff up, folks, you really can’t.:

Texas Senator Ted Cruz summed up the day for Barr and the Democrats.:

Joe Biden thinks China is your friend, possibly because he steered a bunch of China’s business to his son’s company while he was serving as Barack Obama’s vice president.:

The hilarious Rob Christie captures the essence of America’s favorite sanctuary city.:

Democrat calls for impeachment weren’t polling well, and it got worse as the week went on.:

The New York Times did its duty for the Deep State, as the fake news media scrambles to set the narrative in advance of the Horowitz Report and William Barr’s multiple investigations into Obama-era spying.:

Twitter’s war on conservative thought ramped up.:

The Democrats were freaking out because Bill Barr is a real Attorney General. It’s been a long, long time since we had one of those.:

Meanwhile, CNN was doing its duty for the Democrats by trying to prop up their Precious Beto.:

The Trump Economy just keeps on winning for Americans.:

If you’re wondering why Democrats are so panicked by William Barr, here you go.:

Who’s the dumbest Democrat presidential candidate? It’s a very tight contest.:

The White House hit back at the Mueller Report with an epic 5-page letter authored by counsel Emmet Flood, no doubt with input from Rudy Giuliani.:

We’ll end this week’s Review with this fantastic video of Larry Kudlow going off on the economy.:

God Bless America!

The Media Mounts a Final Desperate Effort to Protect Barack Obama

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

The fake news media is going into overdrive. – Over the last 48 hours, we have now had the three fakest fake news outlets push their toadyism on behalf of the panicking Democrats and Deep State to a new level. On Wednesday night, the New York Times put the deep state spin on the Obama FBI’s spying operations against the Trump Campaign; Thursday night saw the release of CNN’s latest fake poll, a desperate effort to prop up the flagging campaign of Irish Bob O’Rourke; and Friday afternoon, the reliable old Washington Post jumped in with an op/ed from the execrable hack Paul Waldman.

Waldman’s piece is an obvious effort to set the narrative for the deep state as Attorney General William Barr pursues his own investigations into the origins of the Obama FBI/DOJ/CIA spying operations against the Trump Campaign. The goal of this narrative is to smear Barr – who, it is now obvious, is our nation’s first real, functional attorney general concerned about the rule of law in over a decade – in an effort to render any findings he makes as illegitimate, nothing but the work of Donald Trump weaponizing the Department of Justice to go after his opponents.

It is, in other words, the ultimate case of the media/Democrat favorite tactic of Projection: The tactic of accusing your opponents of doing exactly the things you yourself are in fact guilty of having done.

This is the beginning of a desperate effort by the Democrat/media propaganda complex to provide one final layer of cover for the head honcho who actually did deploy the FBI and DOJ and CIA to attack his opponents. It’s an operation designed to protect the guy who oversaw the entire operation and actively guided it – America’s Worst Mistake, Barack Hussein Obama. For those of us who have been paying close attention to all of the information that has come out into the public domain, Obama’s fingerprints have always been all over this illegal spying operation mounted against the opposition party’s presidential campaign.

The spying on the Trump Campaign was mounted as a counterintelligence operation by the FBI, recommended first by CIA Director John Brennan, authorized by FBI Director James Comey and managed by Deputy Chief of the Counterintelligence Division Peter Strzok. As a matter of routine, the President of the United States is given weekly briefings of the FBI’s counterintelligence operations. At the very least, Obama was fully aware of everything that was going on, a reality borne out in myriad text messages between Strzok and his paramour Lisa Page.

All of this and so much more is a matter of public record already – it is not in doubt. The fake news media has done everything it can to keep the public living in blissful ignorance about it all, but more and more Americans become aware every day, and that trend will speed up massively with the release of the pending Horowitz reports and the coming declassification of all of the underlying documents by President Trump, which will also begin to take place in the coming weeks.

So Barr must be smeared – it’s the media’s only remaining shield for Obama His Own Self. And it isn’t just Barr – other key players must and will be smeared as well.

You should expect the Post or the Times to quickly begin mounting a similar smear campaign against DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz, since he is supposed to issue his own reports on a) the rampant Obama-era abuse of the FISA process, and b) the leaking habits of ex-FBI Director and current Teen Drama Queen James Comey in the coming weeks. Why? Because all the perceived enemies of the Deep State/Democrat Party must be smeared. Their reputations must be besmirched as a matter of protecting the media’s puppet masters.

What about Senate Judiciary Chairman Lindsey Graham? You should expect to soon see the media mounting a smear campaign against him as well, since he is promising to use his committee to mount its own investigation into the origins of the spying operation. Graham, a life-long bachelor, has long been the subject of rumors that he is a closeted gay man. Already, we are seeing despicable cretins like Rosie O’Donnell, Alec Baldwin and Chelsea Handler launching gay smears at him via their own Twitter accounts. You should expect to see the Usual Suspect media outlets – The Post, the Times, CNN, MSNBC, etc. – to soon start running stories pushing rumors about Graham, stories they would never even consider running about any Democrat.

Yes, it is despicable. Yes, it is beneath contempt. But hey, this the fake news media and Democrats we’re talking about here. You expected something else?

The Week in Review: A Big Week for Bombshells, a Bad Week for Beto, a Great Week for America

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

[The week just past as chronicled on the @GDBlackmon Twitter feed.]

The week began with the fake news media harassing its former hero, Robert Mueller, as he exited from church on Easter Sunday. The news-faking only got faker from there.:

Keeping with the Democrat/media preferred narrative, Chris Wallace did his duty over at Fox News Sunday.:

Russians’ support for Joseph Stalin surged to an all-time high. Democrat presidential candidates all over the country were thrilled.:

Over at MSNBC, serial liar Brian Williams, who lost his job as host of the NBC Nightly News for telling hysterically false stories on-air, was proving he’s learned nothing. Nothing at all. BTW, James Woods was suspended by Twitter shortly after posting this.:

Irish Bob O’Rourke’s no good, terrible, very bad week was just beginning…:

…and one more guy no one’s ever heard of jumped into the Democrat presidential race.:

The Democrats can’t say the word “Christian” anymore, so they made up a new term for them: Easter Worshippers. You seriously cannot make this stuff up.:

Nick Searcy nails Fauxcahontas and the current state of college education in America, all in a single 280-character tweet. Genius.:

Hide yo wife, hide yo kids, Creepy Joe Biden is on the prowl!:

When Mayor Pete was asked why he is running a campaign completely devoid of substance, he gives an answer that’s completely devoid of substance. And fake journalists everywhere swooned and sighed and said “he’s just sooooo dreamy!”:

As if we needed one, here’s another reason to hate the New York Yankees.:

My radio pal @GregBudell found exactly the right word to describe these idiots.:

Closing out a busy Monday, Brian Stelter doubled down on the fake in his daily Eunuch Address to CNN’s airport captive audience.:

Sri Lankan authorities confirmed what everyone already knew.:

Meanwhile, Mayor Pete was testing the waters for switching his campaign over to a Jimmy Swaggert strategy. In all seriousness, God probably doesn’t have a political party, but if he does, it certainly isn’t the party that favors killing babies after they’ve already been born.:

In a CNN townhall that nobody watched, The Commie was mining for votes in prison, presumably because the Democrat Party has already registered all the illegal aliens and dead people to vote.:

Matt Gaetz laid one bombshell on the table…

…and Tom Fitton revealed another.:

A clown car filled with #NeverTrump nitwits was forming in the GOP elephant’s rear.:

John Brennan’s bad case of Turret’s Syndrome was acting up again.:

Cher made an ass of herself on Twitter again. In other news, water remained wet.:

I got all pumped up because the Texas legislature is trying to pass a bill to get rid of daylight saving time here. They’re probably just sandbagging us like they’ve done several times before, but you can’t blame a guy for hoping.:

The President is as tired of House Democrats as he is of Mitt Romney.:

Dear Californians: STOP VOTING FOR DEMOCRATS. Will you never learn?:

Also, Dear Californians: STOP COMING TO TEXAS. We don’t want you to f*ck up our state, too.:

The slow, steady death of the White House press briefing continues, a policy I began advocating in early February, 2017. Because President Trump is his own daily press briefing.:

It was a week for very strange endorsements.:

When globalist European politicians wake up to the death of their country’s native culture, a crisis they themselves created…:

Another Spygate bombshell was dropped on Thursday…:

These #ClimateScam alarmists can’t keep their stories straight. We had been assured by @AOC that we still had 10 years left. Guess I’d better start drinking all my wine tonight.:

On Friday, more WINNING happened…:

…and the liberal tears were flowing again.:

Out here in Flyover Country, where real Americans live, the party was on.:

He’s a Democrat. That’s what Democrats do.:

One more Spygate bombshell for the week: The wife of VP Mike Pence’s former chief of staff was working for Super-Duper FBI Hotshot Peter Strzok throughout the Spygate affair. My goodness.:

Reliable Peggy Noonan was busy carrying the Deep State’s water this week.:

Speaking of press briefings, President Trump held one of his own on Friday evening, and it was epic.:

Irish Bob concluded a no-good, terrible, very bad week with a no-good, terrible, very bad day in Vegas.:

Meanwhile, the Democrat Party was coordinating with fake pollsters and the fake news media to roll out the 2016 strategy for 2020. It’s all they got, folks.:

I fixed ABC’s headline here.:

And this eventful week ended with the fake news media even faking the weather.:

And Just Like That, Liberal Tears Started Flowing Again

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

I’m old enough to remember when the fake news media assured us a recession was imminent.  – When was that, like, February? I’m even old enough to remember when Obama his own self and his evil minions constantly assured us that consistent 3% or better economic rate of growth was just no longer possible, and that a 0%-2% economy was the “new normal”.

Remember those days? Yeah, bad times…bad times….

Well, sorry, lefties, but the Trump economy just keeps rolling right along. The Commerce Department released the economic data for the first quarter, and Boom!, the Trump agenda delivered 3.2% growth for those three months. And, given that the initial GDP numbers have so far suspiciously been consistently understated during this Administration – unlike the previous 8 years, when they were consistently overstated – we can feel pretty certain that the revised number released a month from now will show the economy grew at an even faster rate than that.

Even better, the GDP number caught all the “experts” off-guard, a fact that should surprise no one. Here’s how Bloomberg put it in its story this morning:

U.S. economic growth accelerated by more than expected in the first quarter on a big boost from inventories and trade that offset a slowdown in consumer spending, bolstering hopes that growth is stabilizing after its recent soft patch.

Gross domestic product expanded at a 3.2 percent annualized rate in the January-March period, according to Commerce Department data Friday that topped all forecasts in a Bloomberg survey calling for 2.3 percent growth. That followed a 2.2 percent advance in the prior three months.

Who are these “experts” and why are they always “surprised” or “caught off-guard” when the real economic numbers are produced? More to the point, when will our fake news media stop regarding people who are always, without exception, wrong and surprised by reality as being “experts”?

So, the liberal tears will begin flowing anew today, since the only real chance any Democrat has of defeating President Donald Trump in the 2020 election would be for the economy to fall into a deep recession. Today’s report shows that the economy just keeps steaming ahead, despite the best efforts of Democrats in congress and in various state governments to slow it down.

For the radical left, these Trump years are the worst of times. For real Americans, they are the best of times. Here’s a scene of real Americans celebrating today’s economic news:

 

Some of life’s truths are immutable.

That is all.

Chuck Grassley and Ron Johnson Lob a Bombshell over to William Barr

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

Well, that’s kind of a big deal.  – The fake news media and Teen Drama Queen James Comey will no doubt squeal that they shouldn’t use that bad word, “spying”, but Senators Chuck Grassley and Ron Johnson disagree. Grassley, who chairs the Senate Finance Committee and Johnson, Chairman of the Homeland Security Committee, sent a joint letter over to Attorney General William Barr on Thursday in which they detail their concerns that the Obama-era Deep State Cabal within the DOJ and FBI continued to spy on the Trump operation after it had failed to fix the election for the Pantsuit Princess.

The letter cites texts between FBI Super-Duper Agent Peter Strzok and his illicit lover, FBI lawyer Lisa Page as evidence that efforts to entrap Trump officials in situations that could be construed as being improper was still ongoing weeks after the election had come and gone. The letter also notes the vast array of illegal leaks being published by the fake news media during the transition, leaks containing information that almost surely came from someone within DOJ or the FBI.  Here’s a key passage:

Additionally, we note that a number of news outlets have reported sensitive information related to the investigation into alleged Russian collusion with the Trump campaign. Those reports have revealed sensitive information focusing on the FBI sending informants to meet withTrump advisors; a warrant to surveil Carter Page; and the United Kingdom signal intelligence agency briefing former CIA Director John Brennan on alleged communications between Trump’s campaign and Russian officials, among other things. 11 Notably, the Justice Department Inspector General’s review of the Clinton investigation found “profound concerns about the volume and extent of unauthorized media contacts by FBI personnel…” 12 It appears the same happened during the Russia investigation. Leaks to the media about ongoing investigations undermine the ability of investigators to properly investigate. Moreover, sensitive leaks to the media while members of congress performing constitutionally mandated oversight are kept in the dark is unacceptable.

 

The senators, both of whose committees have oversight over the activities of the DOJ, go on to order Barr to work with their staff to schedule a joint hearing in the near future to provide testimony to the committees about the following:

  1. Please describe the nature and extent of your review of FBI surveillance of theTrump Campaign, President-elect Trump’s transition staff, Vice Presidentelect Pence’s transition staff, President Trump’s staff, and Vice PresidentPence’s staff, including your efforts to determine whether that surveillance was adequately predicated.
  2. How many counter-intelligence briefings were provided to the Trump and Pence transition staffs prior to Inauguration Day? Please list the dates, all agencies involved, and each official that represented those agencies at the briefings.
  3. Many of the FBI employees involved in these activities are no longer employed by the federal government. How will your review obtain information needed from these individuals?

Now, this is all a bit of well-orchestrated Washington, DC kabuki theater, of course. Anyone who has been paying attention to the information that has come to light about the Obama Administrations efforts to spy on the Trump camp has been aware for well over a year that those efforts continued not only through the transition, but that Obama holdovers at DOJ and the FBI kept it all going well after Trump’s inauguration.

Hell, that’s essentially what the entire Mueller Witch Hunt was all about. At the end of the day, it was little more than a Deep State-sanctioned intelligence-gathering operation designed to entrap Trump officials and provide the Democrats with both a roadmap to impeachment and opposition research to use during the 2020 campaign.

But now that Mueller’s operation has folded up shop, it’s finally time for the tables to turn. The letter from Grassley and Johnson demanding a hearing is just a part of the process necessary to start building the public record and case against the real law-breakers. You can be sure that Barr is well aware of the Obama conspiracy to fix the 2016 election and then find a way to depose Trump after he was elected. He was aware of all of that when he wrote his famous 2018 piece slamming the legitimacy of the entire special counsel process, in fact.

So this is not necessarily a “bombshell” for Barr or the few among us who have been paying attention to the case being built against the real bad actors, but for the 99.9% of the population who have been letting the fake news media distract them with all those fake news shiny objects, it is. This letter is a big deal, because it is the trigger that formally kicks off a process of revealing real information to the public through these two key committees.

That’s how this game ultimately works in Washington: Fake justice is very loud, quick and in-your-face on the 24-hour cable channels; but the wheels of real justice turn slowly, inexorably, and take place mainly behind the scenes.

That is all.

Bombshell: FBI Retrieved Deleted Hillary Clinton Emails From Obama’s White House Office

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

I thought this was plenty important for a separate, mid-day Campaign Update. – Tom Fitton and Judicial Watch just tweeted the following revelation, courtesy of interrogatories they were able to do with assistant director of the FBI Counterintelligence Division Bill Priestap:

Judicial Watch was able to obtain this information as part of as court-ordered discovery related to its ongoing lawsuit related to the Clinton email issue. Priestap has long been considered to be a key witness to the activities of the Obama-era Deep State Cabal, as he served as the direct supervisor over super-duper FBI hotdog Peter Strzok throughout 2016 and 2017.

That is all.
