Act II of the Trump Presidency Begins With a Media Meltdown – Same as Act I

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

And now, Act II of the Trump Presidency begins. – As the curtain came down on Act I of the Trump Presidency following William Barr’s release of the Mueller Report on Thursday, we found our fake national news media engaged in one of the most epic meltdowns in its sordid history, exactly as we found them at the start of Act I. In other news, water remains wet, dogs still lick themselves in bad places, and Cody Bellinger hit another home run. Some things never change.

Act I was titled “Trials and Tribulations,” for obvious reasons. Today, on Good Friday, we move to Act II of the three-act play, this Act titled “The Race and Revelations.” (The symbolism of this day should not be lost on anyone paying real attention here.) This Act will be the shortest act of the 8-year Trump Presidency, but perhaps the most consequential once things are all said and done.

We begin with The Race – the Revelations will begin to come shortly, starting with the release of the Horowitz Report – as a motley array of miscreants, grifters, commies, liars and hacks present themselves to the Democrat Party voter base as potential nominees to run against President Donald Trump in 2020. Though they don’t fully realize it yet (though many suspect it), this is a contest they are preordained to lose, as America’s history stopped being written by chance early on the morning of November 8, 2016. From that point forward it has all been one big case of divine intervention – it’s the only rational explanation for all the insanity that has occurred since Trump won that election.

Regardless of the futile nature of the quest, we already have 15 or so (no one seems to be certain how many have actually announced) souls formally in the race, with more to come. This morning’s big news about The Race is that Creepy Joe Biden, with his half-century history of bringing unwanted physical contact to thousands of women and children, will defy all logic and common sense and go ahead and jump into the nominating contest within the coming week.

At 76 years old, Biden has already sought the presidency on two previous occasions and failed, but seems intent on besting the Pantsuit Princess in that category by trying and failing one more time. The social justice warriors and snowflakes who dominate the Party’s nominating process now might agree to nominate a young, gay white guy like Pete Buttigieg, or a young-ish, lunatic white guy like Irish Bob O’Rourke, or even an ancient, Bolshevik Commie white guy like Bernie Sanders. But there is no way on earth that they will nominate a doddering, handsy, goofy white guy like Biden.

In any event, Biden’s bad decision is just another Democrat gift to President Trump, providing the President with yet another easy target for ridicule from his Twitter feed. Having Biden, Bernie, Buttigieg and Beto – the four pasty white men of the Apocalypse – sitting atop the horse race polls for the foreseeable future will just serve to create further division and conflict within the Democrats’ identity politics-driven voter base, driving the Party’s voter enthusiasm inexorably downward.

Cool.

The fake news media will continue its focused effort to revive the rotting corpse of its Russia Collusion fantasy through this Easter weekend, but there will be no Easter Sunday resurrection, and Biden’s coming formal announcement will serve to move that dead story out of the news cycle starting next week. Congressional Democrats will continue to try to keep it somewhat in the news with their own Witch Hunts, but those will all ultimately amount to little more than dud bullets being fired from rusting pistols.

Even Rachel Maddow will ultimately be forced to abandon her nightly conspiracy-mongering for one simple reason: Democrat Party leaders will demand it of her. We must remember that the Democrat Party and the fake media establishment are essentially a single entity now, as intertwined with one another as the Obamas and Netflix.

The DNC will ultimately demand that all fake media outlets refocus their propaganda efforts on promoting the Party’s candidate clown car. We already saw the beginnings of this transition taking place yesterday, as first Steny Hoyer and later Bug-eyed Adam Schiff ran to the nearest microphone and camera to poo-pooh the idea of trying to impeach the President even as all the irate boobs at CNN and MSNBC were demanding they do so.

No, The Race is the thing now, and the Revelations are soon to come. Act II has officially begun, and this is all preordained.

Buckle up.

Oh, in case you’re wondering, Act III of the Trump Presidency is titled “Justice and Jubilation.” It’s preordained.

That is all.

It’s Predicament Day for Democrats and Disloyal White House Staffers

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

Oh, noes, not predicaments! – Y’all, we have a bunch of really awful people finding themselves in “predicaments” today – aren’t you sad? So, so, so sad for these terrible, sleazy people? Yeah, me neither.

The first bunch of execrable jackasses who find themselves in a predicament today are the leaders of the Democrat Party, and they’re in their current predicament thanks to what Bloomberg describes as “a sliver” of The Commie’s voter base, who are in what the media likes to call “Bernie or bust mode.” These voters are so embittered by the fact that the DNC fixed the 2016 nominating process for the Pantsuit Princess that they’ve decided they’ll simply abandon the Party if their Commie hero doesn’t get his way this time.

But hey, what’s the worry here? As I noted yesterday, Bernie’s the Democrat front-runner now, well ahead of Creepy Uncle Joe and 20 points up on Irish Bob O’Rourke. And isn’t it interesting that we don’t see Bloomberg or anyone else in the news media writing pieces about “Biden or Bust” voters or “Beto or Bust” voters? Although, the way they’re all slobbering over Mayor Pete right now, we will surely see some “Buttigieg or Bust” pieces in the near future.

Oh, hey, and have you noticed this?  Take a look at the photo above and tell me what the four men pictured have in common.  That’s right: The Party of Social Justice Warriors and campus Snowflakes has four pasty-white males leading everyone else in its nominating process. Taken together, those four symbols of white male privilege and toxic quasi-masculinity are pulling 70% of the support in the race in the new Emerson Poll.

Remember when Kamala Harris and Cory Booker were the Party’s “rising stars” according to the fake news media? They’ve been completely eclipsed by Irish Bob and Mayor Pete, two of the whitest white men on planet earth. The one real Hispanic candidate in the race, former San Antonio Mayor Joaquin Castro, having not been endowed with the fake media’s “rising star” tag, sits at 3% in the Emerson poll, and just 1% in every other recent poll taken in the race. The fakest Indian in the race, Elizabeth Warren, just keeps bumbling and stumbling along at 5-8% support in the various polls.

That reality in and of itself presents quite the predicament for the Democrat Party, because there are tons and tons of SJWs out there who aren’t going to vote for a white male, whether he’s a real Commie like Bernie, or pretend commies like Irish Bob or Mayor Pete. So any way you slice this pie, the Democrats have quite the predicament, thanks to their half-century-long cynical focus on identity politics.

I’m cool with that.

And now a word from our sponsors… – I spent a very fun half-hour on NewsTalk 93.1 FM in Montgomery, AL with host Greg Budell on Tuesday. The podcast is below. My segment starts at about the 35 minute mark, when Greg and his producer Joey tee up Cher’s Democrat Party theme song, “Gypsies, Tramps and Thieves” as my intro. But listen to the whole thing – Greg’s hilarious and runs a great program.

 

Follow this link for more of this great show’s podcasts, and follow Greg on Twitter at @GregBudell.

Now, back to today’s “predicaments”… – In other Predicament news, the pending release of the Mueller Report tomorrow by Attorney General William Barr has people nervous, and we can all imagine why that would be the case.

Apparently no one is more nervous today than all the creeps and seditionists on the White House staff who have been working from the inside to undermine President Donald Trump and his Administration for the last two years. The news-fakers at Vanity Fair are reporting that some of these scumbags and sleazeballs are “experiencing “breakdown-level anxiety” over whether their names or identifying details will appear in the report.”

Oh, my. Oh, my, my, my. Don’t you all just feel so terrible for them? Yeah, neither do I.

But boy, this is a real, big-time predicament, isn’t it? You’re a White House staffer. You took the job on a pledge to be loyal to the President and the country, and you have spent your time on the job leaking trash to our garbage news media and doing whatever else you could to inhibit that same President’s ability to do his job on behalf of the American people. Now, you’re afraid that the release of the report by the Gestapo Chief, er, “Special Counsel” who’s completed his 22-month sham investigation is going to catch you up in its undertow.

Well, that’s just dandy, as my dear Dad used to say.

Bring it on, Mr. Barr. Let’s out these seditionists and provide them with a little public-exposure “justice” of their own. Couldn’t think of a more deserving den of snakes.

That is all.

Almost All of You Paid Less Taxes in 2018, And Bernie Sanders Wants That Money Back

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

As always, the fake news media was lying to you.  – Yesterday was tax day, and millions upon millions of Americans found out that, as is always the case when it comes to President Donald Trump and his policies, the fake news media has been lying to them for 17 solid months about the impacts the Trump tax cuts would have on their own income tax bills. The fake news media has spent every day since the bill was passed in December, 2017 telling the Big Lie, reciting its joint talking points with their Democrat Party masters, pretending that the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act was just a giveaway to millionaires and corporations.

But yesterday was the proof point, with pretty much every taxpayer outside of high state income tax states like New York and California getting a very significant cut. Even in those high-tax states, the great majority of citizens paid less tax than they would have under the Obama tax regime.

Still, leftist morons like failed actress Alyssa Milano were out on Twitter, posting mindless nonsense claiming things like “Already this April, we’ve learned that tax refunds are down this year by $6 BILLION”, proving only that they have no clue how the income tax system works. Yes, total tax “refunds” have been lower than under the previous high-tax regime, for two reasons:  1) the most obvious – total tax LIABILITIES are much, much lower under the new system (duh), and 2) the simplification of the system resulted in more accurate tax withholding tables, meaning wage-earners got more of their hard-earned money up-front, rather than overpaying and allowing the government to earn interest on their money until they filed their refund claim.

But we can’t expect abject nitwits like poor Alyssa to ever understand anything so complex. The doofus also tweeted that “According to a recent NBC/WSJ poll, only 17 percent of Americans think their taxes went down, and a majority don’t think they got any tax cut at all. And this isn’t partisan. Only 33 percent of Republicans think they got a tax cut.”

Well, yes, but what does that prove? It just proves the success of the Big Lie strategy by the media/Democrat axis of propaganda on this issue. Even on Fox News, you could find talking heads on a regular basis lying about these tax cuts. Just as in 2008, when Americans were brainwashed by the media to accept the notion that they were somehow obligated to vote for an African American man, as if doing that would somehow make up for slavery, this particular Big Lie strategy was a success, no doubt.

And let’s face it: many, many people – including pretty much all Democrats – are so dimwitted that they will continue to believe the Big Lie even though they paid far less taxes in 2018, simply because they got a lower refund. All that does is prove how successful the political left has been in dumbing down our schools.

The rest of us should just enjoy our extra money, and remember that those tax cuts were enacted without a single Democrat vote.  NOT ONE.

Meanwhile, the Democrat front-runner wants all that money back, and more. Much, much more. – The Commie had a townhall on Fox News last night, and made it very clear he wants all of that tax money back, and a whole lot more.

Bernie Sanders – now the front-runner for the 2020 Democrat nomination according to the new Emerson Poll – told moderators Martha McCallum and Brett Baier about all his grand plans to rape the American taxpayer and spend all their money on “free” college, “free” healthcare and “free” everything else, promising well over $100 trillion in new government spending if he is elected to the presidency.

Hey, if you’re going to turn the Democrat Party into the Socialist Party, you might as well go all the way.

On the other hand, you do have to admire Sanders for having the guts to go on Fox News, where he knew he would be asked tough questions that would never be asked on CNN, MSNBC or any of the three major networks, and sticking to his guns. The old Bolshevik had a quick, if hilariously mindless and false, answer to everything, and never strayed from his commie roots, which is more than any of his challengers would be able to do in the face of such a grilling.

And hey, it’s refreshing to see at least one Democrat finally dropping the pretense that he or she is not a socialist, isn’t it? Sanders doesn’t really believe anything that Obama or Hillary Clinton didn’t believe – he’s just willing to come right out and say it.

His frankness has already influenced the other contenders to be more honest about their real bone-headed beliefs, and Sanders’ new-found status as front-runner in the race will only cause the others to move even further to the radical left.

Thus, no matter which one of these raging lunatics ends up with the Party’s nomination, American voters are finally, at long last going to be presented with a clear, stark choice between voting to continue have a free and open society, or follow Venezuela by taking our country down into the socialist abyss. That is where the Democrat Party has wanted to lead us since at least the Woodrow Wilson Administration more than a century ago – Sanders is just the first guy who’s been willing to openly and proudly admit it.

Dangerous times, these are.

Mayor Pete Has Stolen Beto’s Media Date to the Dance

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

Why, what could possibly go wrong? – A team of Chinese scientists is grafting human genes into monkeys, in an effort to make them “smarter and more human-like.” I swear I don’t make this stuff up.

According to the report in the Business Recorder, “Researchers edited the human version of a gene known as ‘MCPH1’ into the macaques. The gene made the monkeys’ brain develop along a more human-like timelineThe gene-hacked monkeys showed better reaction times and improved short-term memories in comparison to their unaltered peers...”  I smell a sequel to “Plant of the Apes” in there somewhere.

In all seriousness, these monkeys should immediately announce their candidacy for the Democrat presidential nomination. They would smarter than half the field, better-behaved that Irish Bob O’Rourke, make a great target for Amy Klobuchar to vent her frustrations, and be far more “human-like” than Joe Biden or Bernie Sanders.

And speaking of Irish Bob O’Rourke… – Here’s the problem with being a media-created Democrat “Rising Star”: Everything tends to go to crap when the media inevitably finds a new rising star to create. For our hero, Irish Bob, it’s all turning into a tale of woe – or, more accurately, one of woeful polls that came out yesterday in the states that make up the first two contests of the nominating process.

First came a new Monmouth University poll of registered Democrat voters in Iowa, where O’Rourke spent the first week or so of his official campaign in March, driving around the corn fields in his carbon dioxide-emitting gas-powered van because he wanted to show he was a man of the people and the people in Iowa don’t drive no Teslas because Teslas don’t use no Ethanol, don’t you know. That pandering strategy apparently did not work out so well for our sheep suit-wearing fake Hispanic, nor did all the jumping up on the nearest table and waving his arms to get attention.

The results of the Monmouth poll are clear: Iowans don’t much care for Beto. O’Rourke, who just a few months ago was widely touted as one of the favorites in this race by his legion of media adorers, came in a very weak sixth place with just 6% support, trailing Joe Biden, Bernie Sanders, Pete Buttigieg, Kamala Harris and even Fauxcahontas in the results.

Yes, friends, Iowa Democrats prefer a fake Indian to a fake Hispanic. Go figure.

As if that result weren’t awful enough for the premiere media darling of 2018, the folks at St. Anselm’s College released a poll of New Hampshire Democrat voters to make matters even more depressing. It turns out that Granite State Democrats would rather live free or die than vote for a circus clown who livestreams his dental cleanings and calls Bibi Netanyahu a racist.

Irish Bob again comes in a very weak sixth place, again with just 6% support in this poll. He trails the same five other candidates as in New Hampshire, though in a slightly different order, with the fake Indian popping up ahead of Harris in this state.

So, what’s going on here? Well, several things.

First, as I noted a few weeks ago, Irish Bob most likely missed his window of opportunity to become an immediate, early leader in this race. He was without question the media’s favorite Democrat at the end of 2018 – they had a crush on him like a high school cheerleader with a crush on the team’s quarterback. That crush would have continued and even intensified had he returned the media’s longing desires by immediately and decisively announcing his candidacy on New Year’s Day or very shortly thereafter.

But he didn’t do that. Instead, he did what high school quarterbacks often do and fooled around for a few months. While the adoring media longed to have its precious Beto in the race, Irish Bob chose to play the field, as it were, hemming and hawing, often disappearing for weeks at a time, and refusing to commit to the relationship that the media so desperately desired.

In the meantime, other candidates anxious to attain the media’s “Rising Star” status were getting into the race and eagerly courting the media’s affections. First came Kamala Harris, who rocketed up the charts firmly into a strong 3rd place behind Biden and Sanders as soon as she offered to take the media out on their first date. It seemed to be a match made in fake news media heaven for awhile, until Harris began committing repeated gaffes, like getting caught on camera letting a CNN fake reporter help her pick out jackets at a high-dollar department store. That show of favoritism to one fake media outlet served to turn other fake media outlets off and had them go out looking for another “Rising Star” to create.

Enter Pete Buttigieg, or “Mayor Pete”, as his media adorers now love to call him. Young, good-looking, smart, quick with the recitation of his favorite talking points, able to hold his own in a tough interview with Chris Wallace – young Mayor Pete seemingly has it all, including being openly gay and married, which is like manna from heaven for his media courtiers.

As first Irish Bob’s and then Kamala’s “rising stars” have faded, it is no accident at all that Mayor Pete’s has eclipsed them in the Democrat Party’s media-created night sky. That’s what a plethora of softball interviews on the cable and broadcast networks, along with all the glowing “He’s just like another Kennedy!” profiles in the New York Times, the Washington Post, the New Yorker and Vanity Fair will do for a guy.

And here’s the thing about Mayor Pete: He’s not stupid or self-absorbed enough to just blow his media cheerleaders off, like their precious Beto did. Nor is he inept enough to engage in a similar series of off-putting gaffes like the bumbling Kamala.

No, Mr. Buttigieg is not a mere shooting star, no flash in the pan, as it were. You should get used to seeing his name running strong in the polling in this race, at least until someone even more attractive to the fickle fake media cheerleaders comes along and sweeps them off their feet.

Other than possibly those monkeys in China, it’s getting harder and harder to see who is still out there who might swoop in and get the media’s date to the Homecoming dance.

That is all.

Jump on in, Alec Baldwin, the Water’s Fine!

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

Go for it, dude. – Fading actor and public assault and battery specialist Alec Baldwin took to his Twitter account yesterday (because that’s how all the fading celebrities communicate – right, Alyssa Milano?) and said this:

Yeah, that’s what Hillary Clinton thought, too. But, oh, hell, why not? Why not have an actor who is most famous for impersonating the President run against him? Would he be any less credible than than the assortment of cranks, hacks, and political grifters who are already in the race?

After all, the field already includes a candidate who is most famous for impersonating an Indian, another who thinks he is Spartacus, a senator who got ahead by sleeping around, another senator who is most notable for abusing her staff, a senator from New York who nobody can figure out why in the hell she’s in the race, a loser who wears sheep suits and rides a skateboard onto stage, a Commie who honeymooned at Lenin’s tomb, and a former vice president who can’t keep his hands off of women and children.

Would Alec Baldwin really bring any less credibility to a presidential race than that clown car? I mean, shoot, he did play Jack Ryan in a movie that one time, so he’s got that going for him.

And I haven’t even mentioned Pete Buttigieg yet. Here’s a guy who favors murdering children right up until the moment at which they would be born and even beyond, and he just spent half an interview on “Meet the Press” and much of his speech at something called the LGBTQ Victory Fund National Champagne Brunch questioning the religious beliefs of the sitting President and Vice President of the United States.

Well, isn’t that special? (Some of you baby boomers will get that reference; you Millennials will probably have to Google it.)

As I predicted a few weeks ago, Mr. Buttigieg is the latest media-facilitated “rising star” in Democrat circles, a guy with no real notable political achievements to speak of – other than getting elected to a notable office – but a guy who checks a lot of the demographic boxes favored by the Democrats’ social justice warrior voter base and who looks good on television. He’s probably about to be eclipsed by the looming, very large presence of the next media-facilitated Democrat “rising star”, Stacey Abrams, but for now, he’s da bomb in media circles, the guy all the Sunday shows are dying to have as their guest and all the fake newspapers and magazines like Vanity Fair can’t wait to profile and compare to Kennedys. He should enjoy all the attention while he can.

But wait, there’s more!

Now, we have this Eric Swalwell guy officially running. He made that official announcement on … wait for it… the Late Show with Stephen Colbert! Because of course he did.

Swalwell is a guy who has the maturity level of the average college frat social director – he is Otter from “Animal House” in the flesh.

His entire schtick is to go on CNN and MSNBC and lie about all the proof of Russia Collusion he has seen but can’t talk about in any detail because it’s all like doublesecretprobation and stuff and only he and Adam Schiff have seen it but everyone is supposed to believe him because he’s the social director for the biggest frat of all, the Democrat Party.

*sigh*

If Lorne Michaels and the writers at Saturday Night Live were intent on creating real humor these days rather than tiresome political swill, they’d invite Tim Matheson to guest host and have him do an impression of Eric Swalwell announcing his presidential run standing next to the beer keg at the frat party. Have Stephen Colbert play the Boone character. That would be some funny stuff right there.

But back to Alec Baldwin: He was likely joking with that tweet yesterday, but hey, why wouldn’t he go ahead and jump into this race? After all, it’s already a car filled with clowns, and he’s a professional clown these days, so he’d fit right in.

Kamala would probably even let him call shotgun.

That is all.

Kirstjen Nielsen Resigns, and Nothing Much Will Change

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

Nielsen’s out, and not much will change. – Kirstjen Nielsen became the fall guy for the ongoing fiasco at our southern border last night, to be replaced as Homeland Security Secretary by ex-Obama official Kevin McAleenan, who served as Deputy Secretary under the infamous Jeh Johnson.

So, what difference will the change in personnel make? Not much. The problem at the border is with the tragic state of our laws and politically-motivated court decisions issued by outlaw Obama judges. Until congress acts to change the laws – and this particular congress is not going to do so – the situation at the border cannot be resolved without the building of a wall. Even with a wall, it will remain near-impossible for the government to send invaders who manage to sneak into our country illegally back home unless the absurd loopholes in the asylum laws are changed. Simple as that.

So, the Democrats have “won” in this issue: They have succeeded in creating a situation of utter chaos on our border with Mexico, they have the literal invasion of our country they’ve worked for so many years to create, and no one in a position of power can do anything effective to stop it. This is the ultimate outcome of the Obama/Soros plan to “transform this country”, as Obama was so fond of saying throughout his presidency. And hey, they had plenty of help from Paul Ryan, John McCain, Mitch McConnell and the Republican majorities in both houses of congress, who did literally nothing on this issue during President Trump’s first two years in office.

A pox on all their houses.

This is the issue on which the 2020 presidential election will be decided. – The President can talk all he wants to about the booming economy and Democrats can talk all they want about Green New Deals and free stuff for everybody, but, just like it was in 2016, what to do about the ongoing invasion – and that is what it is – taking place from Texas to California will ultimately decide who gets to live in the White House starting in 2021.

President Trump understands this, which is why he decided last week to put off dealing with the healthcare issue until after the 2020 election has come and gone, choosing instead to keep his focus on border security and pounding his Democrat opponents for refusing to do anything to address it.

The winning strategy for Trump is obvious: Get as many miles of new border wall built as you can with all that Department of Defense money that’s been identified, and pound the Democrats on the issue every day. Keep them on the defensive for the next 18 months.

That leaves the Democrats with what they always try to do on this subject: Rank demagoguery and trying to change the subject.

Hey, thanks to the Paul Ryan/Mitt Romney/John McCain wing of the GOP, it’s worked for them so far.

Some campaign odd and ends:

How moribund is Elizabeth Warren’s campaign? Fauxcahontas is running a poor third in her home state of Massachusetts. That moribund. And look who’s about to catch her there: Pete Buttigieg. Ouch.

Speaking of moribund campaigns, how about Cory Booker’s? He announced he had raised $5 million during the first quarter of this year, which sounds like a decent number until you realize that Buttigieg, the little-known mayor of South Bend, Indiana, had raised $7 million. Yikes.

Bernie Sanders led the Q1 money race for the Dems, coming in at $18 million. Kamala Harris raised $12 million, while Irish Bob O’Rourke came in at $9.4 million, with most of that coming in March following his announcement in late February. Because he hasn’t formally announced, frontrunner Joe Biden had no fundraising numbers to release.

Meanwhile, President Trump raised $67.5 million, $26 million more than those five leading Democrats combined.

Oh.

That is all.

Loser Stacey Abrams Personifies the Bizarre Requirement for Democrat Superstardom

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

Qualification Numero Uno: Are you a recent loser? – Tim Ryan, a relatively obscure congressman from Ohio and Eric Swalwell, a disgusting demagogue from California, both entered the swelling field of candidates for the Democrat 2020 presidential nomination this week. Cool, right?

Right. But you don’t need to spend too much time worrying about whether either one will ultimately win the party’s nomination for one simple reason: Neither of them can make a credible claim of being a political loser.

Wait, what? Is that a typo? Am I mainlining rotgut vodka like Chelsea Handler has been doing for the last 30 years? Am I auditioning for a job with CNN by getting it 100% wrong????

Well, no, none of that. I’m dead serious here: It is a simple fact that, in order to be considered to be a serious contender for the 2020 Democrat nomination, a candidate has to first be a fully-certified loser. In fact, being a recent, laughable loser is the quickest way to have our fake news media declare you to be a “superstar.” The Democrat Party and its lapdogs in the fake news media are quite literally obsessed with political loooooooosers, especially recent ones.

Irish Bob O’Rourke, who managed to lose his 2018 senate race to incumbent Ted Cruz despite piling up a 3-to-1 spending advantage, is the most obvious example of this growing phenomenon. The media’s beloved “Beto” has been declared either a “rising star” or “superstar” by pretty much every major fake media outlet in the free world at this point, for no reason other than that he managed to lose fairly closely to his GOP opponent. Well, that and live-streaming his dental appointments on Facebook, which was just so darn cool.

Then there’s the even odder case of Stacey Abrams, the loser in last year’s Georgia gubernatorial race. She managed to lose that race despite a major spending advantage, along with a rampant, blatant voter fraud campaign in her hip pocket. Despite all of that, and despite a slavish news media giving her tens of millions of dollars in free air time and print space, the final count showed her coming up more than 50,000 votes short. There just weren’t enough cemetery, prison or illegal alien voters in all of Georgia to close that gap.

So, what has she done in response? Why, she’s taken a page out of the Pantsuit Princess’s book of political projection, accusing her opponent of being the one who was stealing votes, refusing to accept the outcome of the race, and declaring herself to be the rightful governor of Georgia, a claim literally no one actually believes but corrupt media hacks glowingly support.

Don’t believe me? Here’s how MSNBC’s bigot host Joy Ann Reid let her Twitter audience know Abrams would be her guest on her Sunday morning show:

She’s not just another failed politician who’s never won a race above the state representative level: She’s a “superstar”!

See what I’m getting at here? Indeed, Abrams is such a darn “superstar” that there is rampant chatter in Democrat and media circles (but I repeat myself) that she is probably going to mount her own presidential campaign. Because, hey, why not?

You just can’t make this stuff up, folks.

Why not, indeed? Abrams likely sits in her extremely roomy living room easy chair, perusing the latest Democrat presidential polls and thinks “geez, all these people are losers, too, so why not me?”

Look who’s leading those polls:

Joe Biden – two-time miserable looooser in Democrat presidential politics;

The Commie – loooooser to the Pantsuit Princess in the rigged primaries of 2016;

Irish Bob O’Rourke – last year’s most famous loser, running a weak third to the Commie;

Kamala Harris – such a looooser that she had to carry on a years-long affair with Willie Brown in order to advance her career;

Those four loooosers are combining to hog 70% of the support in the current RealClearPolitics average of Democrat polls. The rest of the field, consisting almost exclusively of politicians who have never lost a political race in their lives, are left to scramble for the remaining 30%.

This is reality.

So, when you see reports indicating that a miserable political looooser like Stacey Abrams is considered to be a “superstar” in Democrat/media circles, don’t laugh, because these people are deadly serious. They are obsessed with such losers, and it’s a safe bet that it’s just a matter of time before the failure from Georgia enters the race.

Republicans everywhere should rejoice.

The Long Knives Come Out for Creepy Joe Biden – But Whose Knives?

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

Ok, it’s official, the long knives are out for Creepy Uncle Joe. But who’s controlling the knives? – When you are leading the horse race polls for the Democrat Party presidential nomination and the news-faking Democrat activist lapdogs at the New York Times start going after you, you know that someone else in your own party is coordinating the effort to take you out. For Joe Biden, the question at this point is who?

On Tuesday the Times ran a report detailing not one, but two more women who have come forward to make complaints about the ex-Veep’s well-known habit of getting more than a little handsy with women and children at public events. One woman, who was 19 at the time, said the then-Vice President placed his hand on her thigh while the two were seated on stage next to one another and did not have the sense to remove it despite her visible discomfort.  The other, 59 at the time, said Biden initially placed his hand on her shoulder and then began slowly moving it down her back before her husband saw what was happening and interrupted things by telling a joke.

The Times piece is careful to note that neither woman is accusing good ol’ Joe of “harassment” – not exactly, anyway – and to include remarks from women who are supporting the candidate’s preferred narrative that he’s just a harmless old guy who means no harm. It’s key to note that all such women who have come forth with such supporting remarks so far – from Mika to Whoopi to Ash Carter’s wife to Mazie Hirono to Meghan McCain – are part of the political ruling class in our country, and members of that class pretty much always stick together in times such as this.

But will this counteroffensive by the Biden camp work? Because what began on Friday as a single accusation is quickly turning into a flood, and the more women who’ve been groped by Biden come forward, the more will likely feel emboldened to do the same.

And let’s be honest, there are many, many more waiting in the wings. It is not like any of this is “new” news. Here’s what I wrote about Biden’s problematic past back in November, 2017:

  • As rumors of handsy ol’ Joe Biden’s plans to run for the presidency for a third time in 2020 continue to swirl, leftwingers everywhere are getting very nervous about the fact that there are literally hours upon hours of video out there in the public domain of the former Veep inappropriately putting his hands on women and girls and invading their space.  As liberal heroes all over the country, like Harvey Weinstein, Kevin Spacey and Al Franken are revealed to be horrific sexual harassers, it is becoming quite obvious that a Biden run for the presidency would be like manna from heaven for the Republican Party.
  • Even the near-terminal nitwits who run the ultra-leftwing online fake news site, the Huffington Post, are waking up to this uncomfortable reality.  And when the HuffPo is waking up to inconvenient truths about the left, that means pretty much everyone else already has, since the folks at the HuffPo are very slow learners.  On Saturday, Amanda Terkel, the fake news site’s Washington Bureau Chief, published a very long expose’ on Handsy Joe’s history of publicly groping women, saying  that “From former Fox News host Bill O’Reilly to producer Harvey Weinstein to comedian Louis C.K., men are losing their jobs after years of having sexually harassed or assaulted women with impunity.  Biden is the wrong guy to bear the standard of any party purporting to speak for the victims of unaccountable power.”  Well, yeah.  So good of you to notice, at long last.

Indeed, it isn’t just the Democrat lapdogs at the Times who are rushing to publish butt-covering pieces critical of Biden’s behavior, present and past – they’re suddenly popping up all over the place. In its own CYA piece, The Atlantic also notes that this is nothing new:

In one way, the allegations against Biden are shocking. In another way, though, they are precisely the opposite. Flores and Lappos have accused Biden, after all, of engaging in exactly the kind of behavior that he has been repeatedly documented engaging in, over a period of years, through file photos and C-SPAN footage and the other media that steadily help to convert American politicians into American celebrities. Gawker, in early 2015, published an image essay taxonomizing the varied ways Biden has been photographed interacting—closely and intimately and publicly—with women and girls. So did New YorkmagazineThe Daily Show offered a video-based version of the same: “The Audacity of Grope,” the segment was called. (It featured documentary footage of Biden engaged in assorted acts of woman-whispering, and culminated in Samantha Bee, the show’s fake White House correspondent at the time, appearing with the front of her blouse and the back of her skirt marked with handprints. She had just come from a meeting, Bee explained to Jon Stewart, with the then vice president.)

The Biden camp is out there now accusing the Bernie Sanders campaign of putting all these women up to coming out en masse, based solely on the fact that the initial accuser, Nevada political activist Lucy Flores, formerly worked for the Sanders campaign. But is that really what is going on here? Maybe, but given the diversity of those complaining thus far, it seems doubtful. While it certainly would not be in any way unusual for the Commie and Flores to have coordinated the initial complaint, the three other women who have thus far come forward do not appear to have any affiliation with the Sanders camp.

Another possibility is that this is all an “inoculation” effort coordinated by Biden’s own camp. It could be an attempt to get several accusations out there into the public domain by “complainers” rather than “accusers.” It is interesting to note that all four of these women have been very careful not to accuse Biden of trying anything sexual with them, supporting the “harmless old man” narrative preferred by the Biden camp and parrotted in most of the fake news media stories so far. The four complaints thus far have given Biden a chance to appear gracious and almost even thoughtful – to the extent the insufferable doofus Biden is capable of being “thoughtful” –  in his responses, and could help to inoculate him against more damaging accusations that might arise in the future.

Or it could be just an organic thing, an almost inevitable outcome created by the ham-handed behavior of a man who has been doing all of this in front of filming cameras for almost half a century now. As the Times story notes, the societal norms have shifted beneath Biden’s feet over the decades, and behavior that might have been written off decades ago as just a harmless old man expressing affection in an obnoxious way can no longer be written off so easily.

Any of the three possibilities seem equally likely, and I frankly don’t care. This was all going to become a problem for Creepy Uncle Joe sooner or later, and the only surprising thing about any of it is that anyone is actually surprised at all.

That is all.

Six More Years of “President Donald Trump”? Magic 8-ball says “Most Likely”

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

Hey, when he’s right, he’s right.  – At a rally in Michigan last night, President Donald Trump (I never tire of typing those three glorious words) put the exact right label on the Democrats’ refusal to drop the whole Russia Collusion fantasy in the wake of the end of the Mueller “investigation,” referring to their ongoing propaganda campaign as “ridiculous bullshit.”

Here’s the full quote:

“The Democrats have to now decide whether they will continue defrauding the public with ridiculous bullshit, partisan investigations, or whether they will apologize to the American people and join us to rebuild our crumbling infrastructure, bring down the cost of health care and prescription drugs … help us fix our broken trade deals,” he said to the crowd.

Be honest:  One of the things that makes you a little bit uncomfortable about President Trump is that he so often expresses exactly what you were thinking but were reluctant to blurt out yourself. Coming as I do from a family of Texas over-cussers, I can think of no better way to describe the ongoing behavior of Democrats like Adam Schiff, Jabba the Nadler, Irish Bob O’Rourke and Eric Swalwell than to call it “ridiculous bullshit.” Because that’s what it is.

Personally, I appreciate the President for going ahead and saying it so I would feel justified myself repeating it several times in this morning’s Campaign Update. Because it is ridiculous bullshit – it just is.

Speaking of Trump’s rally in Michigan… – Democrats who poo-poo the President’s rallies as being insignificant are quite frankly whistling past the graveyard. Yesterday’s rally in Grand Rapids – a city of less than 200,000 – attracted more than 32,000 people. At one point, the line waiting to get into the Van Andel Arena stretched for more than a mile. As usual, the thousands who could not gain admittance into the facility stood outside and watched on giant TV screens.

This is not a one-time fluke – this happens over and over and over again at every rally the President holds. The Democrats and their fake news media flunkies want you to believe that this is a very unpopular POTUS, but his 50% approval rating in the Rasmussen survey tells another story, and his average public approval rating is higher than Ronald Reagan’s was at this point in his first term in office.

An unpopular, failing president would have a hard time attracting major crowds like this one. But these rallies have actually grown larger and more intense over time, not less so. Just as with the big Obama rallies in 2008, they are in fact a harbinger of a very strong candidate, an incumbent whose re-election chances are growing stronger by the day.

I don’t like to hyper-focus on polls since they are so unreliable, but the new Quinnipiac poll out this week it a good indicator of what an uphill climb the Democrats truly have in 2020. Here’s a link to The Hill’s report on this poll.

First, as The Hill notes in its blaring headline, Pete Buttigieg has “surged”, now getting 4% support in the Democrat horse race. Second, Fauxcahontas is mired way down in a tie with the 37 year-old mayor of South Bend, IN. Ouch. Things are just not working out for Little Mouth Always Running, are they?

Third, Irish Bob O’Rourke has very predictably moved past a fading Kamala Harris to capture 3rd place, pulling 12% to Harris’s 8%. Fourth, Creepy Joe Biden now holds a 10-point lead over the Commie at 29-19.

None of those results are in any way surprising to anyone who has been paying attention to the dynamics of this race, which is admittedly still in its very early stages.  Harris has thus far been a stumbling, bumbling disaster of a candidate, a prime example of someone whose time in the public spotlight came well before she was ready for it.

The Commie has his base of support, but finds it getting peeled away by all the other commies in the race, like Buttigieg, for example. It’s like he’s dying a death by a thousand cuts, as all the other craven candidates keep stealing his issues and policy positions.

Biden hasn’t even formally announced his candidacy yet, but continues to attract fairly strong early support on name recognition and his association with Obama. That Obama-glow will steadily wear away as the race goes on, and we will probably see “Peak Biden” as his polls surge in the week after his formal announcement, and then slowly but steadily fade as the long race drags on and the demented Democrat voter base wake up to who he really is.

So, none of that is any surprise at all.  But here is what is a surprise buried deep in the bowels of this poll:

Just 57% of the self-identified Democrats and Democrat-leaning registered voters polled in this survey say they will not vote for President Trump regardless of who the Democrat nominee is in 2020. That is an extraordinarily low percentage from this segment of society, meaning as it does that fully 43% of “Democrats and Democrat-leaning registered voters” are open to the idea of a second Trump term in office.

Ooof.

Get used to saying President Donald Trump, Democrats, because you most likely have 6 more years to do so.

That is all.
