The Democrat Party is Waging a Generational War

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

Turns out, one outright commie in the race is enough, even for Democrats. – New York City Mayor Bill “Meatless Mondays” DeBlasio thinks he is cut out to be our president, oh, he really does. So, he ventured up to New Hampshire to test the waters there yesterday, and boy was that a bad idea.

DeBlasio was the lead “attraction” for an event billed as a panel discussion about healthcare.  But it appears that no one in the Granite State much cares about healthcare, or getting up close and personal with Bill DeBlasio.

In total, just 20 people turned out for the event, which is really bad, but that becomes purely awful when you realize that 14 of the 20 people were sitting on the panel, with just six hearty souls serving as the “audience” for the event. Upon learning of the sad turnout, White House Counselor Kellyanne Conway hilariously tweeted that “There are more people than this in my house every night for dinner.”  Oof.

These Democrat debates are going to be a hoot. – Don’t look now, but some guy you probably never heard of named Andrew Yang is the new Big Thing among the Millennial social media crowd that is always looking for a handout. Yang is…well, he’s uh…ummm…he’s a “tech entrepreneur,” which generally means he became fabulously wealthy creating some business that appeals to Millennials. Now, he’s basing a presidential campaign on the same concept, which in Democrat politics means that he’s proposing to give away a lot of money to Millennials.

So, a standard issue Democrat.

Yang has differentiated himself from the “forgive student loans,” “green new deal,” and “medicare for all” crowd by proposing something even more craven, what he calls a “Freedom Dividend” that simply gives $1,000 per month to … wait for it…EVERYBODY. Yes, that’s right: He’s just going to have the federal government write a check for a grand to 335 million Americans each month. For those interested in arithmetic, that comes to $335 billion each month, right at $4 TRILLION every year for a government that’s already running a trillion dollar budget deficit.

I swear I don’t make this stuff up.  Who could?

When asked how he would pay for this latest Democrat money grab, Yang offers only a false analogy with Alaska: “What they are doing with oil money in Alaska, we can do for all of us around the country with advancing technology.”

Well, here’s what they do in Alaska: The Alaska government decades ago dedicated part of the money it collects from taxes and royalties from the state’s massive oil production (second in the U.S. only to Texas) and distributes an annual dividend to the state’s small number of citizens from the balance. But this is not a budget-busting handout – Alaska is able to do this only because it runs a significant budget SURPLUS almost every year thanks to its oil and gas industry. Indeed, the state’s constitution requires the budget to be balanced each year, unlike the federal government.

The amount of this annual payment varies with the health of the oil industry, which determines how much the state is able to collect in taxes and royalties. During the depths of the oil price bust a few years ago, the state had to suspend the dividend for one year because paying it out would have thrown its budget into a deficit situation.

Being a standard-issue Democrat, Yang’s proposal makes no such consideration. Other than his vague reference to somehow funding it with “advancing technology” – an idiotic message intended purely to deceive idiots – Yang never even mentions funding it within some budgetary constraint.

Like the dimwit Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez with her “Green New Deal” and Bernie Sanders with his “Medicare for All”, Yang’s plan is to simply have the Federal Reserve print the money every month and hand it out to everyone. The inevitable result of such a program would be a rapid devaluation of the currency and massive inflation, meaning that all you Baby Boomers who spent the last several decades carefully saving money and planning a modest retirement based on the expectations of semi-responsible government and fairly stable economy can all go back to work, presumably as greeters at all the rapidly-disappearing Wal-Mart stores.

A word of warning: Amazon does not need nor hire greeters.

Make no mistake about this: What the Democrat Party is engaged in right now, today, is an organized, conscious, generational war that pits Millennials vs. the Baby Boom generation. That Party has in recent years made the conscious decision to toss organized labor overboard in favor of illegal aliens, and tossed Jews overboard in favor of Islamists, based on the calculation of which group might bring them more future votes. The Democrats right now are in the process of tossing Baby Boomers and even Gen-Xers over the side in favor a larger and younger future voting bloc.

This is just the latest example of the reality that the Democrat Party’s overriding motivation is not to do what is best for all Americans, but the acquisition and maintenance of political power.

Andrew Yang is just the latest manifestation of this intentional political strategy by the Democrats, and it’s working for him. His event in San Francisco last Friday drew a crowd of 3,000, which is 2,994 more than Bill DeBlasio could come up with in New Hampshire, and 1,000 more than Irish Bob O’Rourke could attract to his competing border rally with President Trump in El Paso last month. In the past month alone, the San Francisco Chronicle reports that Yang raised $350,000 from 66,000 donors, which is enough to qualify him to participate in the Democrats’ upcoming first debate in June.

That debate is going to be little more than a competition to see which candidate can promise to print and throw away the most money America does not have on issues that Millennials care about. Because the Democrat Party is waging a generational war here, and everyone over the age of 40 is the enemy.

Wake up, people – this is deadly serious stuff.

That is all.

The Democrats’ Ongoing Fascination With Political Losers

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

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is an actress. – Everyone should watch this video. Trust me, just watch it. It’ll be the best 23 minutes you invest this week. I’m going to keep this pinned at the top of each piece I post for the next few days in order to maximize its – and her – exposure.

Paul Begala is an anti-Semitic sleaze. – The man with the highest forehead on television referred to Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump as “cockroaches” in a clear effort to dehumanize the Jewish couple in the minds of CNN viewers. Adolph Hitler and Joseph Goebbels would have been extremely proud of Mr. Begala, who has made a living for 25 years now by lying on television.

Why is today’s Democrat Party such a steaming cesspit of anti-Semitism? – Speaking of raging anti-Semites, the Deputy Press Secretary for the Bernie Sanders campaign, an illegal alien named Belen Sisa, was forced to apologize yesterday when anti-Semitic posts she made on Facebook on Sunday were made public. Just more proof that Jewish voters who continue voting for Democrats are voting for their own destruction.

I’m betting she learned how to lose Florida. – The Tampa Bay Times had this to say in a tweet yesterday: “Amy Klobuchar revealed she recently spoke with Andrew Gillum about what it takes to win Florida. Here’s what she learned.” I swear I don’t make this stuff up.

What is it about the current crop of Democrats and their ongoing obsession with losers? Irish Bob O’Rourke, the Texas loser to Ted Cruz, after months of dithering around while trying to “find” himself as if he were a 22 year-old snowflake, appears about to finally announce his run for the presidency. Stacey Abrams, who lost the Georgia governor’s race to Brian Kemp despite having massive voter fraud in her favor, is now making noises about doing the same, as we noted here on Monday.

And now we have presidential candidates seeking advice from Gillum, who lost the governor’s race to Republican Ron DeSantis in spite of the sleazebag elections officials in Broward and Palm Beach counties spending a week trying to manufacture enough votes to tip the count in his favor. Gillum is so ethically challenged that he will probably soon find himself on trial on findings by the Florida Ethics Commission that he accepted illegal gifts on many occasions while serving as Mayor of Tallahassee.

Ok, come to think of it, that is all most likely exactly why Klobuchar is seeking Gillum’s advice.  These are Democrats we’re talking about here, after all.

Hey, no offense intended, but these guys are really, really old. – Going back to our precious Robert “Beto” O’Rourke for a moment, despite all the hundreds of millions of dollars in free media hype he has received from every media outlet from CNN to the New York Times to the Washington Post to MSNBC to Oprah (who is a media outlet in and of her own self), Irish Bob finds himself running a poor 5th in the latest Monmouth poll, trailing Creepy Joe Biden, the Commie, Kamala Harris and even Fauxcahontas with just 6% support among registered Democrat voters.

Meanwhile, Creepy Joe Biden comes in at 28%, with the Commie close behind at 26%. This brings me to just a fascinating set of fun facts.

On Election Day 2020, the Commie will be 79 years old, while Creepy Joe will be less than two weeks away from turning 78. If elected and then re-elected, either man would be pushing 90 by the end of a second term in office. This is rather stunning to know, considering that the oldest serving president in our nation’s history, Ronald Reagan, was 77 years old the day he left office after having served two full terms.

Every Democrat in America spent the full eight years of Ronaldus Magnus’s presidency screaming that he was just too darn old for the office. Today, the Creep and the Commie are pulling well over half of Democrat voter support. Meanwhile, the comparative “young guns” in the race, Irish Bob and Harris, are stumbling along with a combined 14%.

Thus, at this point, the Democrat fascination with political losers by the Party’s leadership hasn’t begun translating into actual support among Democrat voters. It seems these voters will require many more months of heavy-duty brainwashing by the Democrat fake news media.

Rest assured, that’s exactly what they will be getting, and they’ll like it. Because, Democrats.

That is all.

Democrats Eating Their Own in Florida is Always a Great Day for America

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

Things I wonder about… – With all the amazing, near magical things mankind has invented in modern times, isn’t it sort of amazing that no one has been able to come up with a banana that lasts longer than five days after you bring it home before it starts to spoil?

Liberals, liberals, where are all the liberals? – Gallup released a new survey last night that claims to show that self-identifying “liberals” outnumber self-identifying “conservatives” in only six states, and get this – California is NOT among them.

Huh???

Yes, friends and neighbors, the survey results indicate that voters in the Golden State call themselves either “liberal” or “conservative” in equal 29% ratios. Not sure what the other 41% of Californians identify as being, but we can be certain it is very odd.

Meanwhile, only in the states of Massachusetts, Hawaii, Vermont, Washington, New York, and New Hampshire do more people admit to being liberal than conservative. What do these results tell us? Well, first of all, they tell us that Gallup isn’t going out to cemeteries and including all those dead Democrat voters in their polling sample, nor are they making any effort to poll all those illegal aliens who vote Democrat in higher numbers with each passing election cycle.

The results also tell us something we have known for decades now, since we watched our very “conservative” yellow-dog Democrat grandparents go out to vote for communists like George McGovern and closet leftists like Jimmy Carter, Lyndon Johnson and Hubert Humphrey. There are an awful lot of “conservatives” out there who simply do not pay enough attention to politics to understand the true nature and goals of the Democrat Party.

And so it is that we get poll results like this one from Gallup, polls that make absolutely no sense at all when viewed in the context of recent U.S. voting patterns. Like most other political opinion polls these days, this one is worthless.

News you won’t see on CNN… – Military troops loyal to Venezuelan socialist dictator Nicolas Maduro are now openly murdering opposition protesters on the streets as the situation in that country continues to deteriorate. Maduro also continues his efforts to starve his own people by blocking convoys of food and medical supplies from entering the country from neighboring Brazil and Colombia.

This is always the end game with brutal socialist/fascist regimes, isn’t it? They ultimately always run out of other people’s money to steal, their economy collapses, people start starving and dying from lack of medical care, they take to the streets to protest and the government responds by killing them. This is not an aberration – it is indeed the inevitable outcome.

And yet, it seems that American leftists are incapable of learning from the dozens of similar object lessons we have seen over the decades in countries all over the world, as evil socialists like Maduro and Stalin and Castro and Mao and Pol Pot and too many others to name have ended up starving, shooting, beheading and otherwise murdering well over 100 million human beings in the past century.

Indeed, the most prominent American leftist – you know, the guy who we see praising breadlines in 30-year-old videos – Bernie Sanders is so stubbornly incapable of learning that just yesterday, he enraged members of his own party down in Florida when he could not bring himself to admit that Maduro is a “dictator,” or even that he should be deposed from power:

“I think there are serious questions about the recent election,” Sanders said. “There are many people who feel it was a fraudulent election. I think the United States has got to work with the international community to make sure there is a free and fair election in Venezuela. Clearly, [Mr. Maduro] has been very, very abusive. That is a decision of the Venezuelan people.”

This refusal by Sanders had the old Clinton-era nitwit and current Florida member of congress Donna Shalala rushing to Twitter to condemn the old Bolshevik: “I’ll make it clear,” Democratic Rep. Donna Shalala tweeted Thursday. “@SenSanders does not reflect the majority of the Democratic Party. And our support for Venezuela’s interim president [opposition leader Juan Guaidó] and the Venezuelan people. Maduro is a dictator and must go.”

So, why is it Democrats in Florida who are so upset by Sanders’ remarks? Why, because Florida is where tens of thousands of Venezuelans have immigrated, become citizens and registered to vote in recent years. The mollycoddling of Maduro by Democrats like Bernie, in stark contrast to the aggressive anti-Maduro position assumed by President Trump in recent weeks, is threatening to turn the “swing state” of Florida into a GOP stronghold.

If bad things have to happen to some group of people, it’s always a great thing when they happen to leftist jackasses like Breadline Bernie and Shalala.

That is all.

The Commie is in, Oily Rod is Out, Kamala is Confused – the Clown Show Never Ends

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

In the future you might want to read your own Twitter feed, Senator. – Trust me on this, you do not want to be the staffer who runs Kamala Harris’s Twitter feed today. At a campaign event in New Hampshire, the not-ready-for-prime-time presidential candidate was asked an actual question by a non-CNN reporter who wasn’t interested in helping her try on clothes, and mass stammering and dissembling ensued:

Many observers marveled that she didn’t have a ready answer to this exact question, given her absurd knee-jerk reaction to the first reports about Smollett’s obvious hoax, in which she tweeted in part that it was “a modern-day lynching.”

Well, that statement appeared on her Twitter account, anyway. But the obvious answer here is that Harris does not run her own Twitter feed, and her staff had failed to inform her about the idiotic and inflammatory nonsense they’ve been posting there.  Thus, when this question came up, Harris had no earthly idea what the reporter was referring to. The issue here is not about Harris having a bad memory about something she tweeted; the issue is about her staff who actually wrote and posted the tweet not having sense enough to brief her about the stupid sh*t they’ve been saying on her Twitter account.

Seems like a management problem to me, and managing staff is one of any president’s most important tasks. Not a great start.

Hey, the Commie’s running again – isn’t life grand? – In case you missed it because your fake news media mavens are too busy talking about the fall of their favorite “Empire” role-player, Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders will kick off his 2020 campaign to secure the Democrat Party’s presidential nomination by promising all sorts of free stuff to young people with lots of student loan debt today. So, the old Bolshevik is making another run at nationalizing all of your assets and doling them out to people who vote for him, keeping a healthy skim off the top like all good Commies do.

Bernie’s problem this time will be one of figuring out a way to stand out from the crowd. In 2016 he was just running against this crazy life-long grifter in a pantsuit who kept coughing and fainting and lying about her illegal email server. This time he’ll find himself in the midst of a field filled with younger fellow commies who are all doing their dead-level best to run even further to the political left than your ordinary, every day commie. Oh, and Joe Biden will be running, too.

The problem is, if you’re Bernie Sanders, how do you get even further to the left than you already are? He’s already out there for $6 to $10 trillion to forgive all those outstanding student loans (dammit, sure wish I hadn’t already paid mine back!), $40 trillion for his “Medicare for All” scheme, and $100 trillion for the hare-brained “Green New Deal” nightmare. As the great Margaret Thatcher famously said, “the problem with socialism is that you eventually run out of other people’s money” to steal, and that applies even in a country as wealthy as the United States.

But hey, Bernie’s just another Democrat – yes, yes, I know he pretends to be an “independent” but I’m trying to be honest here – who is appealing to voters who can’t be bothered with references to reality or have their brainwashed minds be distracted by facts. And that makes him little different than Kamala Harris, Corey Booker, Kirsten Gillibrand or any of the other two dozen or so competitors who will ultimately be in this clown car race.

But, for better or worse, the Commie’s in! Let the Bolshevik games begin!

As the Commie jumps in, Oily Rod plans his exit. – The news fakers at CNN, MSNBC, the New York Times and the Washington Post are all down in the mouth this morning over reports that our perpetually oily Deputy Attorney General, Rod Rosenstein, is planning to leave his post by mid-March. Your fake reporters and fake talking heads are all depressed because of the assumption that this likely means that Gestapo Chief, er, “Special Counsel” Robert Mueller will also be wrapping up his fake investigation at the same time.

Rosenstein, seeing the handwriting on the wall, announced back in late January that he would voluntarily step down shortly after new Attorney General William Barr was confirmed and had assumed office, an event that happens today. Multiple reports citing sources out of the Justice Department indicate that Mueller, with the exit of his utterly corrupt over-seer, is planning to shut his failed coup attempt down at the same time.

Now, America will get to see whether Mr. Barr is a well-intentioned patriot intent on doing what he can to restore a one-tiered system of justice in our country, or just another Deep State thug who will perpetuate the thinly-veiled cover-up of all the crimes committed against the Trump Campaign and Trump Administration by the Comey/Rosenstein/McCabe-led cabal that operated within the DOJ and FBI throughout 2016 and well into 2017.

Our country has seen enough of the McCabes, Comeys and Strzoks being fired and allowed to walk around shooting their mouths off and making millions writing books and giving speeches while no one at DOJ makes any effort to hold them accountable for their roles in the outright coup d’etat attempt they created and managed. Neither Jeff Sessions nor Matthew Whitaker seemed interested in lifting a finger to correct this unjust situation.

Barr has an opportunity to change all of that, starting today. But the most disturbing thing about Barr is that those who know him keep describing him as this “stand-up guy”, an “old pro” with an “unimpeachable character.”

You know, the exact same things we were all told about Robert Mueller back in 2017.

So if you’re expecting some sort of swift action to bring all of these Deep State skunks and snakes to justice now that Barr’s in office, well, a healthy dose of skepticism appears to be in order here.

It’s like my Dad used to always respond whenever I’d say “I wish” something would happen: You can wish in one hand and spit in the other and see which one fills up faster.

That is all.

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.
