Beto O’Rourke Had Better Fish or Cut Bait Very Soon

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

Oprah meet Beto; Beto meet Oprah…: – With his window of opportunity to get into the Democrat Party’s 2020 presidential nominating race rapidly closing, Irish Bob O’Rourke, fresh off a 30-day hiatus so he could “find himself” for about the 27th time in his goofy life, cast about for the highest-profile, most reliable Democrat media shill he could locate for a televised interview, and landed the biggest shill of all – Oprah Winfrey.

Filled with incisive, hard-hitting questions like “are you the real deal?” and “what’s it going to take for you to say ‘yes, I’m doing it’?”, Oprah’s interview soft-balled and powder-puffed its way to getting the famous Texas loser-to-Ted-Cruz to finally admit that he’s “been thinking about running for president” (you don’t say!) and he would announce his decision “before the end of the month.”  Oh, sing hosannas to the heavens and pass the flan!

The taping of the Oprah/Beto interview took place in New York City, presumably because The Oprah couldn’t be bothered to travel to Irish Bob’s technical home town of El Paso, Texas, and will air on The Oprah’s OWN network on Feb. 16, at which time I’ll be watching Wheel of Fortune or something on the History Channel.

Here’s the thing for Irish Bob: If he’s going to get into this race, he needs to do it now or sooner.  Last month would have been better, actually. It’s hard to keep up with it all at this point, but there are already at least 10 Democrats in the race, with at least a dozen more to come, and the laggards are going to find it harder and harder to properly staff their campaigns and raise the money to pay them. O’Rourke is married to a woman who is the heiress to a fortune reportedly worth billions, but unless Irish Bob’s dad-in-law is ready to fund the primary effort, our sheep-suit-wearing, tonsil-televising hero had better get his fundraising machine cranked up before all the big money has been otherwise committed.

A month ago I’d have made Irish Bob the odds-on favorite to be the 2020 Democrat nominee because he is the absolutely perfect Democrat candidate:  Completely unqualified; no accomplishments in the private sector of our economy of any note; no real accomplishments in government, either, for that matter; willing to say literally anything to attract votes from depraved and demented Democrat base voters; and he looks good on television. Hell, he even has his fake nickname that leads at least half of all Democrat voters to still think he is Hispanic or something, allowing him to tick off that “Minority” box even though he isn’t one, just like Fauxcahontas has made a habit of doing throughout her adult life in order to get ahead.

But today, with our fake news media already competing to jump ahead in line to promote the likes of Kamala Harris – who really is a minority and a woman to boot, and as unqualified and fraudulent as any candidate could be – Irish Bob runs the risk of becoming just another pretty face in the crowd if he waits too much longer to jump into the fray.  He has to remember that when running for the Democrat nomination, the most important endorsement doesn’t come from governors or senators or the party’s other “elder statesmen”.

No, the most important endorsement in the Democrat race comes from the fake news media. He had that full endorsement in his race against Ted Cruz, with the entirety of the Texas media actively campaigning on his behalf, and national outlets like the New York Times and CNN doing everything they could as well.

But he has to remember that he was a ‘party of one’ in that race – the only Democrat running, which made him the media’s default pick. The fact that he was running against Senator Cruz, who the media despise as fiercely as any Republican not named Trump, also helped lead to all those fawning puff pieces declaring him to be the next “Kennedy”.

Irish Bob hopes to ultimately be running against the even more-detested-by-the-fake-media Donald Trump, but first he will be running against probably two dozen fellow demented and depraved Democrats. That means he will not only have to compete with the likes of Harris, the Commie, the Fake Indian and Crazy Joe Biden for fawning attention from the national media, he even has to compete with former San Antonio Mayor Julian Castro for the front page puff pieces in the Austin American Statesman and Texas Tribune.

His problem today is that he’s cut this interview with The Oprah, so he can’t announce until it has aired, because if you cross The Oprah, you are well and truly a dead man walking in Democrat politics. So that’s at least another 10 lost days, days that he could have and should have been using to build a campaign.

So here’s the deal: If you haven’t seen Irish Bob make a formal announcement of his candidacy by noon on February 17, then you should probably quit obsessing about him, because he’s just too indecisive to succeed in a race against the bunch of ethics-devoid cutthroats he’d be up against in the Democrat primaries.

February 17 is your day, Irish Bob.  Fish, or cut the damn bait.

That is all.

The Wall Will be Built, One Way or Another. Stop Whining.

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

Really?  This guy was actually a candidate? Who knew? – You will all no doubt be highly saddened to know that Richard Ojeda has dropped out of the race for the 2020 Democrat Party’s presidential nomination.

I can hear the gears clinking furiously in minds everywhere out there, as you take to Google to figure out just who in the hell is Richard Ojeda? So, let me tell you: He’s a state senator from West Virginia. I have no earthly idea when he announced he was running, but on Friday he announced he wasn’t, and that actually made news for some reason.

The candidate no one had ever heard of said that, although “The indications were very positive from an overwhelming response to our videos, to thousands of volunteers, and a level of grassroots fundraising support that grew every day,” he doesn’t “want to see people send money to a campaign that’s probably not going to get off the ground.”

Oh.  Ok.  Adios, dude.

In other, real news… – The Commie’s in!  Yes, friends and enemies, Bernie Sanders is going to be providing more Soviet-style gruel for the leftist masses for the next two years, as expected.  Yahoo News reports that he will formally announce his bid just as soon as he can use other people’s money to rent a room at some Washington, DC hotel.

Awesome. The 2020 campaign just wouldn’t have been the same without this grifting lunatic weaving his envy-based Bolshevik fantasies for all the college students to soak in.

Why can’t people listen anymore? – I’ve always marveled at the inability of the leftist mind to listen and absorb what is actually being said in a speech. Sadly, this same lack of attention span appears to have now afflicted many on the right as well.

Yesterday, President Trump gave a speech that lasted about 20 minutes or so, in which he announced that he had reached an agreement with congressional “leaders” to re-open the semi-closed government and get all the federal employees paid via a three-week continuing resolution (CR).  That part of the speech consumed about one of the twenty minutes.

Those who actually listened to the speech in its entirety and absorbed what was actually said heard the President spend the other 19 minutes of it making making the case for why the current situation along our Southern border constitutes a true national emergency, and why the building of a wall is necessary to relieve it. Mr. Trump further promised that, if congress has failed to allocate his requested $5.7 billion in wall and border security funding at the end of the 21-day period of the CR, he will use his authority to issue an executive order declaring a national emergency and use funds his staff has already identified in the defense budget to immediately begin adding to the 630 miles of border wall that already exist.

Oddly, the only part of the speech most Trump “supporters” apparently heard was the deal on the CR. Despite the reality that Donald Trump is the first President since Ronald Reagan who has kept promise after promise after promise, the backlash among his supposed supporters on social media was immediate and harsh. Twitter was immediately filled with the wailings of thousands of Trumpians accusing the President of “caving” and whining that his presidency is now somehow over.

For those still clinging to that notion this morning, let me try to explain what really happened on Friday:

  1. President Trump acted to ensure employees in the Coast Guard and Department of Homeland Security did not miss a second paycheck, and to ensure the flight disruptions that were taking place at several airports due to lack of personnel did not spread across the country and begin harming the overall economy; and
  2. The President put the onus on congressional Democrats to either negotiate a deal on border security or deal with the reality of a national emergency declaration.

Seeing all the uproar taking place, the President tried to calm the waters with the following tweet:

As if that blunt statement needed more clarity, White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders followed up with this:

Are we clear now, or are there still some who need it boiled down into 25 words or less? If so, here you go:

The wall is going to be built, one way or another.  Stop whining, and pay better attention.

That is all.

The New Democrat/Media Narrative: Congress Must Take Up Mueller’s Witch Hunt

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

This is going to become hard to keep up with. – When the Republican candidates for the presidency assembled for their first debate in the summer of 2015, there were 17 of them. At the rate the Democrats are going so far this year, they will exceed that number by Valentine’s Day.

Hawaii Representative Tulsi Gabbard told communist CNN talk show host Van Jones that she plans to toss her lei into the ring within the next week. As I mentioned yesterday, San Antonio politician Julian Castro will be making his formal announcement today, joining Congressman John Delaney of Maryland as the first two formally-declared candidates. And of course, Fauxcahontas announced last week that she’s formed an exploratory committee, which means she’s running too.

So, Ms. Gabbard will make it four, and she’s actually the most interesting of the bunch.  She’s only 37 years old, but has been making news for years in her congressional role as a rare contrarian within the Democrat congressional caucus. Don’t get me wrong, she’s a socialist like all the rest of them, but she’s at least fairly intelligent about it and is not shy about calling out her party’s own excesses when she sees them. She has courage, in other words, and that is a terribly rare thing in a Democrat politician.

Gabbard most recently made news earlier this week when she called out dimwitted Hawaii Senator Mazie Hirono and California Senator Kamala Harris for the anti-Catholic bigotry the two exhibited recently in their roles on the Senate Judiciary Committee.  Gabbard was also frequently critical of the Obama Administration and of Hillary Clinton during her own disastrous run for the presidency.

One interesting thing Gabbard’s candidacy will do is without question give the Democrat field the broadest range of age in American history.  Think about it:  From Silent Generation Bernie Sanders at 77 to Millennial Tulsi Gabbard at 37, the Democrat field will span four full generations and 40 years. That is unprecedented.

But bottom line, Gabbard is far too intelligent, honest and interesting to ever win the Democrat Party’s presidential nomination, but she could set herself up for a cabinet position in some future Democrat administration by raising her public profile with a primary run.

Actual exchange at a Trump press availability on Friday afternoon:

TRUMP: Good job yesterday, I appreciate your sales pitch.

ACOSTA: I didn’t see any danger on the border Mr. President.

TRUMP: That’s because we had a wall.

Oof. And that’s why Donald Trump is President.

The fake media starts a new narrative using a most reliable source. – It didn’t get a ton of notice, but early Thursday morning, leftist rag Mother Jones put up a column by Democrat activist/pretend journalist David Corn titled “The Myth of the Mueller Report.” Corn, reading the handwriting on the wall, spends 1,000 words or so detailing the fact that Special Counsel Robert Mueller is under no obligation to produce any sort of public report, or any report at all that does anything other than detail the various indictments of ham sandwiches he’s secured over the past 20 months, and submit it confidentially to whomever happens to be serving as attorney general at the time.

The handwriting on the wall to which I refer is all the obvious signals that, despite all the hysteria and false reporting in our fake news media, Mueller has been slowly winding his operation down since last August and is likely to close up shop and issue whatever final report he’s going to issue shortly after the confirmation of new Attorney General William Barr is confirmed by the Senate.

The other piece of handwriting that’s all over our national reading wall  is that, along about that same time, DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz will be issuing his final report – at long last – on all the rampant abuse of the FISA system that took place during most of 2016 and into 2017. That report will not be good for Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, and everyone knows it, including Mr. Barr. That’s why we saw the news early this week that the oily Mr. Rosenstein will be leaving his own office right around the same time these other major events are taking place.

All of this is horrible news for the Democrats and their  media agents who, like Corn and Mother Jones, have been faithfully pushing the “Russia Collusion” fantasy on behalf of the Democrats for the last 26 months. They are desperate to keep the fantasy alive and need another vehicle for doing that once the Mueller witch hunt closes up shop.

Enter the new Democrat majority in the House of Representatives, and the concluding logic in Corn’s piece, which reads as follows:

Providing the citizenry a complete account of the Trump-Russia scandal is actually the responsibility of Congress.

And there it is: The roadmap for media justification of the endless series of kangaroo-court hearings the Democrats are going to conduct through various congressional committees for the next two years. 20+ months of a Special Counsel witch hunt aren’t going to deliver the Democrats their unicorn, so it is now up to Congress to spend the next 24 months pounding the public with the same nonsense.

You can expect to see Corn’s “logic” echoed throughout the fake news media’s editorial pages and talking head panels in the coming weeks and months.  Because this is the narrative, and pounding home the narrative is all our fake news media does anymore.

That is all.

And Just Like That, Beto Leaps Into The Lead

The Evening Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Beto Mania Update:  As if on cue with this morning’s Campaign Update, a new poll commissioned by Moveon.org has Irish Bob O’Rourke surging into the lead in the 2020 Democrat nominating contest even before he formally announces his inevitable candidacy:

Excerpt from the NBC.com article on the poll…

An early straw poll of members of the progressive group MoveOn.org shows a wide-open competition for liberal voters in the 2020 Democratic presidential contest, with Rep. Beto O’Rourke narrowly beating out former Vice President Joe Biden…

The most popular potential candidate was O’Rourke, D-Texas, who was selected by 15.6 percent of respondents, followed by Biden at 14.9 percent, and then Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., with 13.1 percent.

Now, a couple of things to note about this poll: First, it was conducted among the members of Moveon.org, who most observers would assume are on the left flank of the Democrat voter base, and five years ago that assumption would have been true.  But is it true now? Probably not – the Party has been pulled so far to the left over the last two years and Moveon.org’s members might well be to the right of the center of that particular leftwing universe these days.

Second, the poll did not include the Coughing Crook among its potential candidates, and anyone who thinks she has given up on her the presidential ambitions that have consumed her entire adult live is living in a dream world.

Third, the poll did include such Democrat luminaries as Kamala Harris, Cory Booker, Fauxcahontas and Micheal Bloomberg (who used to pretend to be a Republican), and represents very, very bad news for those characters. Harris and Booker were supposed to be the “young guns” in the 2020 Democrat field, and, after damaging themselves terribly during the Kavanaugh hearings, are in grave danger of seeing their rising moons eclipsed by the Beto Mania that is fast sweeping the country.

Irish Bob is going to be the Democrat nominee in 2020, as amazing as that might still seem to some of you. Yes, he’s a loser.  Yes, he has no real qualifications for the job. Yes, there are going to be 20 other candidates in the field.

But he’s going to be the nominee. Might as well just start printing up the bumper stickers now.

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.

If Ben Sasse Left the GOP, Would the Democrats Even Take Him?

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

There had to be one at some point. –  Holy cow, we had an actual slow news day on Saturday!  Yes, friends, for literally the first time since The Campaign Update was initiated in July of 2016, we did not have multiple major news cycles in a single day.

The biggest news was that Serena Williams, the greatest women’s tennis player in history, lost in the U.S. Open finals to Naomi Osaka, and decided to blame it all on the umpire.  Williams was completely dominated in the match by Osaka, who won the first set 6-2.  Williams decided to start fighting with the umpire after he noticed her coach signaling to her from the stands, which is supposed to be illegal in the game of tennis although everyone does it.  Williams, seeing the handwriting of a loss on the wall, decided to latch onto the umpire as her excuse, threw several tantrums, and ruined the first major championship for Osaka in the process, as Williams’ behavior left both women crying at the trophy award ceremony.

Sportsmanship is a lost art.

If Ben Sasse left the GOP, would anyone actually notice? – The other “big news” of the day was the statement by Nebraska’s RINO Senator Ben Sasse that “I consider leaving the Republican Party every day,” as if anyone didn’t already know he’s a liberal dressed in a conservative suit.  Democrats everywhere cowered in fear at the prospect of heaping a big helping of Ben Sasse atop their already steaming plate of smarm and hypocrisy provided daily by Cory Booker and Kamala Harris.  Their party is already filled to capacity with grandstanding jerks – it may be the one place in Donald Trump’s economy that has no more job openings.

Yes, it’s caused by their professors. – A new study by Brigham and Women’s Hospital finds that 1 in 4 college students suffer from a mental health condition.  No word if 98% of them are journalism majors, but it seems likely.

The Democrat Party’s far, far, far, far, far, far, far left wing weighs in on Kavanaugh. – If you’re a normal person, i.e., someone who is perceptive and cogent enough to actually live in the real world, you know that the Democrat Party’s base today is made up of three wings:  It’s left wing, it’s far, far, far left wing, and it’s far, far, far, far, far, far, far, far left wing.

Outside of Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders, both of whom make Joseph Stalin look positively conservative, most Democrat senators line up within one of the first two wings from an ideological standpoint.  Given that neither Sanders nor Fauxcahontas sit on the Senate Judiciary Committee, you might be surprised to learn that the party’s far, far, far, far, far, far, far, far left wing – which is by far its largest voting wing today – has actually not been satisfied with the mob rule, showboating antics of the Democrats during the Kavanaugh hearings.

That’s right – these hipster/social justice warrior/Antifa nutjobs are actually angry at their party leaders for not going far enough.  To prove it, a group of them, led by the despicable cretins who run the Women’s March, DailyKos, Friends of the Earth and Justice Democrats, sent a letter on Saturday to Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer excoriating him and other senate Ds for not going far enough and for the hienous crimes of … wait for it … oh, you have to wait for this one … KEEPING AN OPEN MIND!

Yes, friends, any Democrat Senator who did not announce how he or she would vote on the nomination before the hearings had been held is now persona non grata among the lunatic major portion of their party’s voting base.  Here’s an excerpt from the letter:

“Your job as Senate Democratic leader is to lead your caucus in complete opposition to Trump’s attempted Supreme Court takeover and to defend everyone threatened by a Trump Supreme Court,” the letter said. “But unbelievably, nearly two dozen Democrats have still not come out against Kavanaugh, and just last week, you helped Majority Leader Mitch McConnell fast track 15 Trump judicial nominees. That is not the leadership we need.”

Note how it defines Schumer’s “duty”:  It’s not to listen carefully to the nominee’s testimony, not to carefully read the massive documentation related to Kavanaugh’s background and prior court decisions, not to carefully consider whether or not the judge is qualified for the job, oh no.  To the radical left, Schumer’s and his entire caucus’s job is to oppose.  Period.  No matter what.  Oppose for the sake of opposing, without consideration, without apparent thought.

Because any Democrat who lets actual thought creep into his or her head might end up deciding that the real enemy to our nation is not the nominee, but the motley collection of nutjobs, malcontents, spoiled babies and nitwits who make up the preponderance of their party’s voting base, and we can’t have that, can we?

This is the milieu that Sen. Sasse says he thinks about joining on a daily basis.  That’s really sort of extraordinary, isn’t it?  The voters in Nebraska really ought to factor that into their decision-making when their Senator stands for re-election in 2020.

That is all.

Hillary Clinton’s Political Career Ends not With a Bang, but a Whimper

The Evening Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

You probably missed it over the weekend, what with all the air in the room and fake news media coverage having been consumed by the death of Senator John McCain, but the Pantsuit Princess’s career came to a sudden, if unheralded end on Saturday.

Wait, what?  How did that happen, you ask?

In the end, the Fainting Felon was done in by an entity she literally owned throughout 2016:  The Democrat National Committee.  Yes, friends, that would be the very same DNC which conspired with the Clinton campaign throughout 2015 and 2016 to rig its nominating process in favor of the Grafting Grifter, denying her challengers – mainly, the Commie Bernie Sanders – a fair shake in the war for the party’s endorsement.  The same DNC whose emails were released to the news media, causing massive embarrassment on the eve of the opening of the Democrat National Convention in August 2016, where the Deceptive Doyen ended up being coronated as a result of all the rigging.  The same DNC that, in concert with the Clinton Campaign, funded the fake Trump Dossier.

Yes, THAT DNC.  One and the same.

At the conclusion of its summer meeting held last week in Chicago, the members of the DNC voted to severely restrict the role played in the nominating process by the party’s so-called “Super Delegates,” that collection of congress members, state officials and other members of the Party’s chosen upper-crust who ensured the Coughing Crook would be the Party’s 2016 nominee regardless of how the voters felt about it all.  The committee approved a proposal that will deny these Super Delegates the ability to vote in the first ballot at the party’s 2020 nominating convention.

Tom Perez, the radical Chairman of the DNC, said after the vote that  “These reforms will help grow our party, unite Democrats, and restore voters’ trust by making our 2020 nominating process the most inclusive and transparent in our history.”

The Pantsuit Princess hates transparency.  There has never been a moment in her entire adult life during which transparency has been her friend.

When one considers that the nominating votes at the party conventions almost never proceed past a first ballot, the implications of this move are enormous, because it virtually ensures that the party’s nomination in 2020 will be decided by its base voters.  The Pantsuit Princess was barely able to survive a completely rigged process against a single decently-funded opponent.  There is pretty much no way she will be able to survive a nominating process two years from now in which she must actually compete for votes on a level playing field against what will be a far stronger array of opponents.

This reality for the Grasping Grifter becomes even more stark when one recognizes the rapidly radicalizing nature of the Democrat voter base.  Such #resistance and social justice warrior types are going to completely dominate the turnout for the Democrat Party’s primaries in 2020, and they have moved far to the left of the space staked out by the Fainting Felon in 2016.  They have moved so far left so quickly that even The Commie finds himself frequently under fire from his own left flank these days.

There is little doubt that the Coughing Crook has plans to mount one last-gasp attempt to seize the nation’s highest office two years hence.  That’s what her endless, tiresome public appearances are all about, it’s what her pathetic book was all about, it’s what her incessant whining and blame-shifting are all about.  She has targeted the presidency since she and Bill were in college, and she lives in a state of constant and overwhelming rage that it has been denied her for so many years by these stupid, inferior voters.

But the DNC basically told her on Saturday that her time is done:  By de-rigging its nominating system, the members of the committee basically shut her and her influence-peddling-and-buying racket out of the process.  The irony is that the fake news media establishment that has propped her up so faithfully for so many years pretty much missed the story.

In the end, it is supremely appropriate that what has been perhaps the single most unearned and ill-deserved political career in our nation’s history ends not with a bang, but a whimper.

That is all.

Trey Gowdy and Adam Schiff Walk Into a Bar…

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

This is not working out the way the Democrat/Media Axis of Propaganda wanted.  Not at all. – The new NBC/Wall Street Journal poll released Sunday pegs President Trump’s job approval rating at 45%.  Why is that significant?  Because it is the highest approval level this particular fake media outlet poll has registered for Mr. Trump since he took office, and it comes after a week of the most focused, intense hit job led by the fake news media against any president in U.S. history.  Just one more reason why the Democrats stopped with their “Trump committed treason!!!!!” nonsense starting on Friday and went back to talking about hookers and playmates.

Speaking of things that aren’t polling well for the Democrats, how about that whole socialism thing, huh? – An ever-dwindling group of “centrist” Democrats who call themselves the Third Way held their annual meeting in Columbus, OH, on Thursday and Friday to try to come up with some sort of coherent agenda for the 2018 midterm elections.  Even though they all agreed that their party’s ongoing lurch to the far, far, far left is a bad thing, they very predictably failed in their quest.  You don’t have to believe me – just read these quotes from the Miami Herald’s coverage of the event:

“Let’s be clear,” Cowan said. “80s supply-sidism, 90s centrism and 60s socialism will not cut it for the era we’re in. We need something new and different.”

Many of those in attendance were careful not to directly criticize Ocasio-Cortez, saying they welcomed the new energy she was bringing into the party. But they also made clear that they thought her style of politics would be a difficult sell outside of her New York City congressional district, where the party must try to win over more conservative voters.

“A small but vocal subgroup that is unhinged from evidence will be wrong in the long run, regardless of how loud they are,” said Iowa state Sen. Jeff Danielson, in an interview.

But he’s not sure other members of his party will listen to his advice.

“We don’t know what we want,” he said. “We haven’t found our sea legs as a party.”

You don’t say…

Ok, so Good Trey Gowdy got out of bed on Sunday morning, and awesomeness ensued. – One never knows what to expect out of South Carolina Congressman Trey Gowdy.  On any given day he appears to alternate between a “Good” version of himself who is a blunt, plain-spoken bulldog of a truth-seeker, and a “Bad” version of himself who is an almost insufferable apologist for even the worst actors at the FBI and DOJ, making many wonder if he is actually seeking a job over there at DOJ when he leaves his congressional seat at the end of the year.  Which honestly wouldn’t be a bad thing if only Good Trey Gowdy showed up for work every day.

On Sunday, Good Trey Gowdy got out of bed, went on Fox News Sunday, and had this to say:

“I have not seen one scintilla of evidence that this president colluded, conspired, collaborated, with Russia. And neither has anyone else, or you can rest assured, Adam Schiff would have leaked it,” Gowdy said. “That is why they have moved on from collusion on to obstruction of justice, which is now their current preoccupation.”

Even in today’s toxic, hyper-partisan atmosphere in the halls of congress, it is a rare thing indeed to see one congressman call out another for what is basically the commission of a crime on national television.   Somewhere, Cong. Schiff’s bugeyes were bugging out even more than usual when he saw that quote.  The sad thing is that everyone knows that what Gowdy said is the unvarnished truth, and that Schiff will get away with what he’s already done and just keep on leaking with impunity because he’s a member of congress.

But Gowdy wasn’t done yet, oh no.  Later in the same interview, he also managed to take shots at the Commie and Dianne Feinstein:

“BAIER: So, Trump supporters look at that, former CIA Director John Brennan, former FBI Director James Comey, what he said, what they’ve said. And they say they understand why the president feels a little inquisitive about where things are going.

GOWDY: Yes, Bret, you don’t even have to be a Trump supporter to be mindful of the fact that John Brennan thinks he’s guilty of a crime for which he can be hanged, that John Brennan thinks he should be in the dustbin of history, that Jim Comey thinks impeachment is too good of a remedy and Jim Comey now thinks that everyone should vote Democrat so Bernie Sanders will be the head of the budget committee and Dianne Feinstein will be the head of intel.

I mean, these are the people that were supposed to be dispassionately, objectively investigating a fact pattern and they have much animus against Donald Trump as anything I have seen in my eight years in politics.”

Good stuff.  Too bad Good Trey Gowdy doesn’t get out of bed every morning.  If he did, we’d be so much further along in this process of bringing the bad actors to justice.

Still, we should enjoy Good Trey Gowdy whenever he does show up, because he’s right on point, and entertaining as hell.

Just another day in why can’t Good Trey Gowdy show up every day 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.

That is all.
