The Week in Review: Anti-Semite Dems, High Treason and Jussie Smollett

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

The Week in Review, courtesy of the @GDBlackmon Twitter Feed…

James Woods started the week out with a tribute to the Democrats’ “Green New Deal,” and things only got smellier from there:

If you aren’t following @mad_liberals on Twitter, you’re missing out on a ton of fun:

That time Minnesota Cong. Ilhan Omar apologized for being a raging anti-Semite, but really didn’t apologize at all:

If only we had an education system that actually educated anyone…:

Hey, I had no idea so many Virginia Democrats went to Rice University back in the day!:

Summing up the “competing” rallies between the POTUS and a loser in a senate race out in El Paso Monday night.:

The perfect endorsement for today’s Democrat Party.:

Why not? All the other communists are doing it.:

Kamala Harris is slowly morphing into Hillary Clinton before our very eyes. No wonder she’s become CNN’s chosen child.:

In actual real news from Tuesday…:

The inevitable outcome of the Democrats’ war on masculinity.:

Here I put college students’ current infatuation with AOC into proper historical context.:

Well, God Bless Texas, then.:

Speaking of Texas and energy…:

Seriously, is there any true thing Alexandria Ocasio Cortez actually does know? It is truly stunning that a human being can hold a college degree and be so breathtakingly ignorant.:

High treason news broke out all over the place on Thursday, and your fake news media scrambled to portray it as just a bunch of patriotic FBI guys doing their best to protect the nation from the evil Orange Man. Because of course they did. *sigh*:

Speaking of faking the news, the folks at Politico seem to be ramping up their efforts in that competition in recent weeks.:

Then this happened…:

…and the nitwit who led the effort opposing 25,000 new jobs and tens of billions in annual economic impact celebrated, because what else would a raging ignoramus do?:

As Jussie Smollett’s obvious hoax began officially falling apart, Chuck Ross accurately predicted the way all the fake journalists who did everything they could to promote the effort to smear every Trump supporter in the nation would respond.:

This explains how the Enemy Within, Ilhan Omar, got her seat in congress.:

Quick! Somebody load a chopper with food and get it up there!:

Why, it almost seems as if the fake news media is trying to mislead the public on Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s true health status. Go figure.:

From our Some Things Never Change file…:

Enemies of the people, plain and simple.

That is all.

Trump Should Sign the Bad Border Deal and Finish the Wall on His Own

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

Ok, the whole “black face” thing  just very predictably veered off into the theater of the absurd. – Semi-tone deaf pop singer Katy Perry fell into the “black face” controversy on Monday for no good reason at all, because of course she did.  Social media always takes any real issue like the one swirling around Virginia Democrats to the most ridiculous extremes possible.

Ms. Perry has attached her name to a line of shoes, and some, like those pictured above, have little eyes, nose and mouth glued onto them.  Sort of like something your 6 year-old granddaughter might design (trust me, I know about this first hand). Anyway, because the shoes pictured above happen to be black in color, a bunch of nitwits on Twitter desperate to be offended accused the singer of being a racist yesterday.

Never mind the fact that the line of shoes come in a variety of different colors – it’s only the black ones that are somehow offensive. Ms. Perry has yet to apologize, something she should never even consider doing in a million years. Because the truth is this: Had her line of shoes included a variety of colors, but not black ones, she’d have then been accused by the very same nitwits of discrimination. You all know that is true.

The people who know “Beto” best would rather go see Trump. Take this as an object lesson. – When the White House announced last Thursday that President Donald Trump would travel to El Paso for a political rally on Monday, Irish Bob O’Rourke, an El Paso native, quickly announced he would hold a “counter-rally” of his own.

Hearts began to flutter throughout our fake news media – as they always do whenever the cute ex-sheep suit-wearing punk rocker opens his mouth – as the wags began to rampantly speculate that their precious “Beto” would surely draw more people to his rally than the President would. After all, El Paso was his home town!  Why surely the people who know and love “Beto” best would turn out in mobs to hear his immaculate pronouncements!

Uh, well, no. That didn’t happen. Not even close. The fake news media did its best to cover it up, but the reality is that the President had an overflow crowd of 8,000 or so inside the arena in which he spoke, and another 20,000 or so standing out in the elements watching on large TV screens. Here’s a shot of a small part of that outdoor crowd:

Meanwhile, a few blocks down the road, only a couple of thousand showed up to listen to the city’s fake favorite son. It turns out that familiarity really does breed contempt.

But the reality won’t stop the fake news media from lying about it all anyway. The shameless fake newsers at The Week have a piece out this morning with this headline:  “Trump Seemed Very Interested in Beto O’Rourke’s Evidently Larger Crowd During His El Paso Rally,” thus deceitfully implying that Irish Bob actually drew more people than Trump did, something not even the most biased fake reporters on the scene attempted to claim.

How false is that headline?  Despite massively inflating O’Rourke’s actual turnout by a factor of seven or so, The Week’s own piece admits the Trump crowd was far larger:

Trump’s audience inside the coliseum was 6,500, at capacity, El Paso Fire Department public information officer Enrique Aguilar told the El Paso Times. “It might be 10,000 with the people outside,” watching on monitors. The rally O’Rourke spoke at, following a mile-long march, drew at least 7,000 people, The Texas Tribune reports.

Um, last time I looked, 10,000 is more than 7,000, even when those absurdly-faked numbers appear in a fake news publication like The Week.

Another bad deal on the border. – The very Swampy congressional negotiators announced a very, very, very bad “bi-partisan” deal on border security funding as President Trump was flying out to Texas on Monday. The “deal” includes just $1.375 for “border barrier” funding – because we mustn’t say “wall”, you know – far below the President’s $5.7 billion demand. It’s a lousy deal, negotiated by lousy Republican swamp rats and open-borders Democrats. The outcome was thus predictable.

If this smelly “deal” passes both houses of congress and is sent to his desk, the President has only three options that would preserve his electoral viability going into 2020:

  • Reject the bill, which means another fake partial government shutdown; or
  • Sign the bill and immediately announce either a national emergency declaration or, as White House Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney laid out on Sunday, that he will use his presidential authority to reallocate unused funds from the Defense, Homeland Security and other departmental budgets to fund the wall.

Appearing on Fox News Sunday, Mulvaney said:

“Any president can do this…There are certain funds of money that he can get to without declaring a national emergency and other funds that he can only get to after declaring a national emergency. The whole pot is well north of $5.7 billion.”

That is the path the President should take. The Democrats are desperate to force another shutdown in order to change the subject from racist, baby-murdering, women-assaulting Virginia Democrats, disastrous Green New Deals and anti-Semite Minnesota congresswomen. So they’ll be all too thrilled to deny more paychecks to those same 800,000 federal workers and cry their crocodile tears over them.

The President should not give them that gift when he has them so clearly on the defensive.

What President Trump cannot do is sign this atrocity of a “deal” and do nothing else on border security. More than any other element of his 2016 campaign, his promise to secure our Southern border is why he was elected. He cannot leave that promise unaddressed any longer and expect to be re-elected in 2020.

The time to act is now.

That is all.

The Democrat Party’s Descent Into Full-Throated Fascism is Now Complete

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

This was a really important week, and it is crucial that we all understand why. This was the week when the mask of socialist fascism came completely off the ugly face of the national Democrat Party, and there is no going back, hard though they will try.

Simply put, all the Democrats had to do over the next two years to have a real shot a regaining all levers of power in our nation’s capital was not be batsh*t crazy, and they couldn’t do it. They can’t help themselves. This is, after all, their true nature, and has been for almost a full century now, when communist loyalists began making real inroads into their ranks, our media and our educational system.

Prior generations of the party’s politicians were able to hide their real desires to turn our nation into just another failed socialist/fascist third world country behind an ever-evolving series of false talking points. But that has all been ripped away thanks to the all-consuming hatred of President Donald Trump (I never tire of typing those three glorious words) harbored by the latest collection misanthropes, racists, women-abusers, ageing Bolshevik grumps, fake Indians and mindless children who now represent the party in congress and Virginia’s state government.

It wasn’t just this week – the batsh*t craziness has been accelerating for a long time now. Anyone paying real attention recognized the Democrats’ lurch to full-fledged fascist thuggery with their creation and full endorsement of the Antifa movement in response to the 2016 election. That move was Adolph Hitler 101 for anyone who’s ever read a book about 1930s Germany. But still the party’s leadership and fake news media agents maintained the fiction that the old Bolshevik Bernie Sanders was some sort of outlier among its ranks, just an old grump – who’s really an “independent” after all – who just got lucky and caught a flukish wave of young voters in his challenge to the Pantsuit Princess in 2016.

But then came the catalyst – Alexandria Ocasio Cortez, a cute, 29 year-old unabashed socialist/fascist with a bright smile, a never-quiet mouth, and a middle-school backpack filled with half-baked socialist “ideas” lucked into a win in a Bronx congressional district and became an instant media star. This hopelessly ignorant but social-media-savvy cretin has increasingly become the “thought leader” – to the extent she can be credited with actually having “thoughts” – of the Democrat Party, and that has led to a growing competition among those who aspire to be the Democrat 2020 presidential nominee and other party leaders to see who can be the most leftist and thuggish among them.

Over the last two weeks we have had multiple Democrat presidential hopefuls endorse a 70% income tax rate, one endorse an even more punitive 90% rate, and another throw out the coup de gras, a clearly unconstitutional tax levied not on incomes, but on assets. To top it all off, another aspirant to the party’s nomination – Irish Bob O’Rourke – went so far as to publicly question the continued validity of the entire Constitution itself, a thought pretty much all Democrats have harbored in their minds but only expressed in hushed voices when among friends.

So the Party’s mask was already slipping, its elastic headband fraying at the edges from the constant strain of having to hold back its members’ true intentions for all these decades, when Ocasio Cortez dropped the figurative socialist/fascist Mother Of All Bombs into the public domain this past Wednesday night: Her “Green New Deal.” Oh, my. The mask didn’t just fall to the floor, it disintegrated like Humpty Dumpty, never to be put back together again.

Within hours of rolling her GND outline onto her congressional website, Ocasio Cortez’s paper version of the Bolshevik Revolution had attracted the endorsements of no fewer than 70 Democrat members of congress and almost all of the currently-announced presidential candidates. 43-year veteran of congress Ed Markey of Massachusetts went in whole-hog, announcing himself as a co-sponsor of this fake green Communist Manifesto.

After a fierce backlash from the public and in some parts of the media, someone – probably Nancy Pelosi – convinced Ocasio Cortez to pull the atrocity down from her website, and she and her staff have been out there for the last two days denying the thing was ever posted in the first place, because lying and scrubbing history is what socialist fascists do. But that action was, as they say, a day late and a dollar short – there is no going back from the crossing of that particular Rubicon.

So now, President Trump will be able to pound his opponents over the head with their full-throated endorsements of all the key elements of socialist fascism for the next 20 months, presenting American voters with the clearest choice they could possibly have between the America they’ve always known or a lurch into the same third-world status now enjoyed by the starving people of Venezuela.

It didn’t have to be this way – all the Democrats had to do was to not be batsh*t crazy. But hey, when you actually are batsh*t crazy, it’s really hard to keep up appearances.

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.

Ralph Northam is What Happens When Our Fake News Media Fails to do Its Job

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

At last!  A failed mayor of a corrupt New Jersey city is running for president!  Thanks, Democrats! –  Yes, friends, Senator Spartacus Jazz Hands, aka Cory Booker, has joined the fray in the ballooning competition to see which Democrat gets to lose to Donald Trump in the 2020 presidential election.  Aren’t you all thrilled?  I know I am.

We had to have Sen. Jazz Hands in the race for the entertainment value alone. Think of him as the 2020 version of John Kasich, only without all the “my father was a mailman” references. Spartacus will be the guy who just keeps hanging around saying all sorts of boring and stupid stuff while not winning anything, but he’ll have the added value of throwing the frequent childish fit when he doesn’t get his way about something. That’s when the Jazz Hands come out.

Yes, truly, Sen. Jazz Hands was an essential element for this cycle’s field of Democrat candidates. His entry into the race leaves us with just one more potential candidate announcement remaining who simply must get in in order to complete the perfect Democrat line up of freaks, misanthropes, communists, losers and frauds: Irish Bob O’Rourke.

Irish Bob simply must get in for the simple reason of all the fantastic social media memes his fake nickname will spawn. Plus, the potential for him live-streaming his next colonoscopy for political reasons is just something the nation cannot live without.

Jump in, Irish Bob, the water’s just fine, and the doctor is ready.

How does this even happen? – When you look back on the reality of it, it’s hard to imagine anyone with a mind creative and evil enough to make up the week the Democrat Party just had. Think about it: This week alone, here is what they have done:

  • Had two sitting governors, the mayor of a major city, and members of 8 different state legislatures sign, propose, endorse or pass bills that legalize infanticide;
  • Had the narrative about the infamous “Trump Tower Meeting” conducted by Donald Trump, Jr. in October 2016 be revealed as utterly fake news;
  • Had one of the party’s major presidential candidates endorse elimination of all private health insurance, a key piece of the communist agenda;
  • Saw the head of the American Gestapo, er, “Special Counsel” issue an indictment against Roger Stone that conclusively proves there was no “Russia Collusion” by the Trump Campaign;
  • Had the State of the Union Address scheduled for Feb. 5, giving President Trump a golden opportunity to spend 90 minutes educating the nation about what a freak and horror show their political party really is;
  • Had their favorite Supreme Court Justice fail to show up for work for the fourth consecutive week;
  • Saw President Trump take the right side – the side of freedom – in Venezuela while many of their own members and media toadies showed their true colors by supporting that country’s current thug socialist dictator;
  • Had the January jobs report come in at almost double the number predicted by all the idiot “experts”;
  • Saw the Dow Jones Industrial Average jump right back up over 25,000;
  • Saw President Trump make huge progress in getting his trade deal with China;
  • And finally, the coup de gras, saw the release of a yearbook photo showing the Democrat Governor of Virginia made up in black face, standing next to a guy in full KKK regalia!

Now, that, folks, is a No Good, Terrible, Horrible, God-awful, Very Bad Week.

And it’s only Saturday.

Seriously, how do you miss this? – If I’m Ed Gillespie, the GOP candidate who lost the Virginia Governor’s race to Ralph Black Face Infanticide Northam, I’m on the phone this morning with the high-dollar firm that was in charge of my campaign’s opposition research effort demanding a refund.

Seriously, how does someone miss something so rudimentary and still hold themselves out to be political professionals? And it isn’t just Gillespie – Northam had three opponents in the Democrat primary, and none of their oppo people caught it, either. It took a conservative blogsite – Bigleaguepolitics.com – with a no doubt bare bones staff to finally take a look at Northam’s college annuals and find the photo that everyone else had missed.  Amazing.

Then there’s the fake news media, most especially the news fakers at the Washington Post. The Post had plenty of fake reporters on staff to dedicate to finding women from 40 years ago who would slander Alabama Republican senate candidate Roy Moore, had dozens of fake journalists scouring every facet of Brett Kavanaugh’s background, but had zero interest at all in assigning some intern to review the high school and college annuals of a Democrat gubernatorial candidate.  Funny how that works, huh?

Here we have an overt racist (Northam’s college nickname was – I kid you not – “Coon Man”) and endorser of outright infanticide sitting in the Governor’s mansion of Virginia in the year 2019, and no one in our fake news media had the slightest whiff of that prior to election day?  Please.

Note to all you demented Democrats: This is what happens when our nation’s entire Fourth Estate has consciously and intentionally abrogated its duty to perform as the people’s advocate in our society. Ralph Northam and the shame he has brought upon you this week is simply reaping what your party has sown.

I’m cool with that.

That is all.

Mueller Bites Into Another Ham Sandwich

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

Robert Mueller has a passion for ham. – The Special Counsel’s office nabbed itself another ham sandwich in the dark of night, arresting former Trump adviser (prior to the 2016 election campaign) Roger Stone with CNN’s cameras conveniently present for the festivities. Funny how that works, huh?

The 66 year-old Stone, who is one of the most recognizable people in America at this point and not any sort of flight risk at all, was arrested at his home as FBI agents pounded on his door shouting “FBI! Open the door!” as they would if they were playing Elliot Ness in a Hollywood-produced film. Stone, after opening the door, was naturally taken away in handcuffs.

The arrest of Stone on a variety of process crimes having nothing to do with any “collusion” with anyone from Russia comes after 20 months of a Mueller-led rectal exam into every facet of his life. The obviously-coordinated media event also conveniently comes in the wake of recent releases of transcripts of the congressional testimonies of a series of FBI/DOJ anti-Trump cabal participants like Lisa Page and James Baker which contained revelations of all sorts of violations of law and process committed as part of the efforts to get Trump during 2016 and 2017. You know, actual news that CNN couldn’t be bothered to report.

Timing is everything if you’re a Special Counsel.

Stone was charged with a series of terrible-sounding process crimes like “obstruction of justice” (as if this Mueller and his band of Clinton/Obama shills were engaged in any sort of pursuit of actual “justice”), “witness tampering” and “lying to congress”, all of which sound great when trumpeted by the news-fakers at CNN. But God help him if he ever screwed up on a tax return, because at the end of the day all these other charges will almost certainly fall away and that is what he’ll end up going to jail for.

Just another day in the pursuit of “justice” by the American Gestapo.

And now for something completely different…: Here’s Irish Bob O’Rourke in a Sheep Suit.  No, really, I’m not making this up…

Conservatives like Jim Hanson making fun of Irish Bob over this video are just whistling past the graveyard.  Democrat voters eat this kind of stuff up. In their minds, O’Rourke in a onesie just makes him cool and hip and they’re all out there on Amazon this morning trying to figure out if they can buy one for themselves. And that sheep mask will be all the rage at Millennial Halloween parties this October.

At the end of the day, the release of this little snip of video will get Irish Bob another 5 percent in the Democrat 2020 nomination horse race polls.

He’s a shoe-in, folks.  Just get used to it: Beto-In-A-Sheep-Suit 2020!!!!

Actually, Mitch, you’re wrong. – The news-fakers at The Hill report this morning that GOP senators “Read the Riot Act” to Vice President Mike Pence at a closed-door luncheon yesterday. Led by Mitch McConnell, this group of half a dozen or so establishment unreliables informed the Veep that government shutdowns are “bad strategy”, with McConnell reminding Pence of his “favorite country saying” which is “there is no education in the second kick of a mule.”

Whatever that means.

We hear this nonsense all the time from McConnell and the GOP Squish lobby in the Senate and House. But every time we hear it, it is instructive to review the last time the GOP got blamed for a partial fake shutdown of the government.

That took place in October, 2013, when Texas Sen. Ted Cruz and Utah Sen. Mike Lee – two actual, real conservative Republicans – led filibusters of a horrible budget bill to force a shutdown that lasted from October 1 through October 17 before they finally relented and agreed to a compromise.

As we see happening today, Democrats and their coordinating agents in the fake news media reacted to that action by Cruz and Lee with glee, assuring the public that Republicans would pay dearly at the ballot box when the 2014 mid-term congressional elections came around.  Because, that is what D.C. Swamp logic told them would happen, right?  Right.

But what actually did happen in the 2014 mid-term elections?  Why, the GOP base turned out in droves, and Republicans swept to huge gains in both the House and Senate.  In fact, this was the election in which Republicans gained control of the Senate for the first time since 2006, the election that put Cocaine Mitch into the Majority Leader’s role he holds today.

One would think McConnell might actually remember such a red-letter day in his career.

I have been involved in and written about politics for almost 40 years now, and it never ceases to amaze me how so many Republicans are simply incapable of recognizing the single most important lesson the great Ronald Wilson Reagan taught them: Republicans will always be rewarded by voters when they stand on principle and keep their promises, and will always be punished by them when they fail to do so.

In this government shutdown, President Donald Trump is standing on principle and keeping his promose, and he will be rewarded by the voters for doing so in 2020 so long as he does not capitulate.  Republicans who stand with him will also be rewarded. Republicans who do not stand with him will be punished.

It really is that simple.

That is all.

A Separation is Coming for Our Nation – Will it be Peaceful?

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

This is a good morning to just ruminate on the state of the nation.

Way back in 1994, when I was writing for a local newspaper in Texas, I wrote a piece about how dangerous it was for the future of our country that those on the political left, led by Saul Alinsky disciples Bill and Hillary Clinton, were in the process of destroying the entire nature of the Democrat Party.

Prior to the elevation of the Clintons, the Democrat Party had been a party that was basically a hybrid of a true “liberal” philosophy on national security and international policy matters (i.e., fairly strong on defense with an aggressive promotion of American priorities in international dealings) and a “socialist” party focused on redistribution of the wealth on the margins, designed mainly to provide what they called a “safety net” to provide for those incapable of providing for themselves.

But, with the elevation of the flower children of the 1960s into leadership positions in our nation’s academia establishment in the 1980s, this all began to change. As our country’s education establishment radicalized and went about filling millions of minds full of mush with their radical notions, the Clintons saw this as an opportunity to move the country to a more pure form of socialism, and to deploy the Saul Alinsky Rules for Radicals tactics in support of that effort.

This all gave birth to Hillary Clinton’s failed, almost comical effort to nationalize the nation’s healthcare industry, and to the beginnings of the death actual political debate in our nation. As the Pantsuit Princess pursued her radical plan, those opposed to her became not just political opponents to be debated in the arena of ideas, but outright enemies to be portrayed as literal evil figures who want to kill fellow Americans.

Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals consists of 13 rules for the destruction of an enemy, not the conduct of political debate, and the last of them reads as follows:

“Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it.”

This is how the nation’s children had already by and large been taught to think about “big business”, “Republicans” and “conservatives” in general since the 1970s, and it is the main principle the Clintons and their spokespeople like James Carville, Paul Begala and Ann Lewis brought into the public arena as their main tactic. Republicans like Bob Dole and Newt Gingrich were no longer described as simply being wrong in a public policy sense, they were literally to be demonized and castigated on the Sunday morning talk shows as being the incarnations of Lucifer and Beelzebub in modern times.

Dirt from their backgrounds was collected and leaked to the rising numbers of mainstream media journalists who had come out of communications schools over the previous 15-20 years and who were willing to go to print or on-air with that dirt at times of the Democrat Party’s choosing.  This effort to collect dirt on enemies was what generated the scandal about Hillary illegally obtaining the “raw FBI files” on more than 1,000 political opponents, a scandal strategically dealt with by the utterly corrupt Justice Department led by Janet Reno.

Of course, once it embarked on this course and allowed it to fully take hold, the Democrat Party could never go back, which is what I wrote in that 1994 piece. The deployment of Alyinskyism is like a cancer that metastasizes within an organism – if not cut out early enough, its spread ultimately becomes irreversible and kills the host.

Had the 1996 presidential election gone the other way, the Democrat Party might have been saved – there were still enough leaders in the party at that time who truly believed in America and might have been able to retake the party and steer it away from its destructive course. But, just as they nominated the milquetoast and ineffectual Mitt Romney in 2012, Republicans in 1996 nominated the milquetoast and ineffectual Bob Dole, thus sealing the Democrat Party’s – and the nation’s – fate.

The increasingly-radicalized news media cheered.

And so it is that here we sit today, in early 2019, and the news media and Democrat Party have become completely indistinguishable from one another. Not only has the notion of actual political “debate” disappeared from the public arena, the entire notion of real, actual “news” has vanished from our nation’s airwaves and steadily disappearing newsprint.

As noted in yesterday’s Campaign Update, the jointly-determined Democrat/fake news media narrative is all we have left. That narrative dictates that Republicans and conservatives in general are evil, non-human beasts who are to be, in the words of Alinsky, “chosen, frozen, personalized and polarized.”

But, as we have seen over the past few years, this principle is not limited to the politicians, but to anyone who supports them, and now has even been extended to the children of parents who allow them to wear caps and t-shirts that contain a simple campaign slogan that talks about wanting to make their country great again. Indeed, the Democrats and their media agents have since 2016 consciously made an effort to demonize the 80 percent of mainland America that lies between the two coasts. The presence of Twitter, Facebook and other social media to serve as echo chambers for all of this divisiveness has only served as accelerants.

This is where the Clintons and their disciples have brought us. Electing the even more-radical Barack Obama to the presidency was seen as “progress” for our society’s destructors, and now the Democrat Party presents us with an array of choices for 2020 who make Obama and his unending efforts to divide the nation along racial-, gender- and any other lines he could think of on a daily basis look tame by comparison.

One of those 2020 hopefuls, Irish Bob O’Rourke – who the fake media wants you to believe is just like John F. Kennedy – openly questioned whether the U.S. Constitution is still relevant a few days ago, and no one in our fake media even blinked. I’m pretty sure JFK never questioned the applicability of the Constitution.

How do we come back from this?  How does our nation absorb more than a quarter century of one major political party willingly converting itself into a degradation mob, a conversion that has now absorbed virtually our entire media establishment?

The answer probably is, we can’t. If you think these people can be reasoned with to see the error of their ways, well, there are no words for you. How could anyone watch what they all conspired to do to Brett Kavanaugh, and still harbor such hopes?  How can anyone observe what they’ve been doing to a bunch of innocent high school kids the past 3 days, and still believe they are somehow redeemable?

The answer, pretty clearly now to anyone who is paying attention, must be that they aren’t. They aren’t redeemable, they refuse to be reasoned with, and that means that this is not salvageable.

Ordinary Americans see all of this happening – it has become impossible not to see it in recent years – and wonder what to do about it? The election of Donald Trump was largely a reaction to this phenomenon. But that outcome has only created focused and increasingly violent reaction from the radicals.

It make take another quarter century – by which time this writer will probably be long gone – but at some point the non-radicals who occupy the 80% of this nation out in “flyover country” will be left by the radicals with no choice but to either submit the will of hopeless ignoramuses like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez or find a way to separate from them.

At that point, the question will become whether or not the Alinskyites in the Democrat/fake media establishment will allow the separation to happen peaceably. Given their history, how can anyone believe the answer to that question will be anything other than a very hostile “no”?

That is all.

Jim Acosta And Beto Beclown Themselves on the Border Issue

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

The ball’s in your court, Alexandria. – Some of you may have seen the tweet issued a couple of weeks ago by socialist dimwit Alexandria Ocasio Cortez in which she said something I actually agree with for the first time:

“Next time we have a gov shutdown, Congressional salaries should be furloughed as well.  It’s completely unacceptable that members of Congress can force a government shutdown on partisan lines & then have Congressional salaries exempt from that decision.  Have some integrity.”

Well, golly, our intrepid Millennial heroine is getting her chance to follow through on her stated belief today, which is pay day for federal workers, and members of congress, too. As Fox News reported two days ago, fully 13 of her freshmen colleagues had already notified the payroll office that they would forego their pay so long as the partial shutdown continues.

GOP freshman Dan Crenshaw from Texas made it 14 with his own tweet yesterday:

But AOC? Well, she has remained oddly silent on the matter.  Turns out that, being the good socialist she is, the stuff that comes out of her mouth applies to other people – the little people, the people out here in flyover country – but not to her.  This whole congress thing is turning out to be a little harder than she thought it was going to be.  Go figure.

Speaking of leftist dimwit heroes… – Even though he no longer holds a political office of any kind, Texas senate race loser Irish Bob O’Rourke is making sure we don’t forget about him as he prepares to announce his inevitable run for the Democrat Party’s 2020 presidential nomination. He’s accomplishing that goal by streaming himself live doing all sorts of things onto his Instagram page, which is followed by thousands of teenage girls, the entire editorial staff of the New York Times and that little bald fat guy who hosts a show on CNN.

Here’s Irish Bob in the kitchen pretending to cook.  Here’s Irish Bob growing a scraggly beard in obvious imitation of Ted Cruz. Here’s Irish Bob putting others in danger as he videos himself while driving a car. Here’s Irish Bob drinking a beer and cussing.

It’s all a frenzied effort by a twitchy guy married to a billionaire to pretend to be just like all you little people, and you can bet it’s working just great, because Democrats do love a good fraud as demonstrated by every guy they’ve nominated for president since Walter Mondale, who broke them of nominating genuine people by losing 49 states to Ronald Reagan in 1984.

Anyway, Irish Bob might have taken the ruse just a tad too far on Thursday, when he live-streamed himself talking about the border security crisis while having his teeth cleaned.  That’s right – I swear I don’t make this stuff up. Nothing says ‘presidential material’ to a Democrat voter like showing the inside of your mouth while a dental assistant scrapes the plaque off of your molars.

Ben Jacobs, a political reporter for The Guardian, had the best reaction when he tweeted, “God, I hope Beto doesn’t need a colonoscopy anytime soon.”

Speaking of presidential material… – Former San Antonio Mayor and Obama Administration HUD Secretary Julian Castro is set to announce his own candidacy for the Democrat nomination in his home city on Saturday. Castro’s probably too genuine a person and has too many actual accomplishments on his resume’ to actually win the Democrat nomination, but if he runs a credible race he could make a strong vice presidential pick for a Joe Biden, Bernie Sanders or Elizabeth Warren, who would need some youth and minority creds to balance a ticket.

And since we’re talking about Texas here… – President Donald Trump flew to the Rio Grande Valley on Thursday as he continues to make the case that the border crisis is real and justifies a presidential emergency declaration if congress refuses to deal with the issue even now that some federal employees are going to miss a paycheck for the first time. He held a couple of events with Texas officials and Border Patrol officers and said all the right things.

But the real entertainment – and strongest proof that border walls that are already in place do work – came from the most unlikely source imaginable.

Increasingly pathetic CNN fake reporter Jim Acosta, obviously frustrated that he is no longer called upon at presidential press availabilities, decided to strike out on his own to stage scenes that he believed would debunk the Trump Administration’s crisis claims. The results were predictably hilarious.

Here’s the first tweet Acosta sent out at mid-afternoon:

So, what does that tell us?  Doesn’t the lack of any activity whatsoever where the wall is already in place actually support the case that the wall is working?  Why yes, of course it does.

Unsurprisingly, Acosta’s idiotic quest produced all manner of funny comebacks – here’s one from Ben Shapiro:

Here’s another – read the logo on the hat closely:

Oof.

Acosta’s basically the biggest fraud working on television today, and an utter dolt to boot.

Hey, he’d make a great candidate for the Democrat presidential nomination!

 

That is all.

Mitt Romney: Hillary Clinton in a Brooks Brothers Suit

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Replacing one flake with another. – Those of you who were despairing over the retirement of Jeff Flake from the U.S. Senate (yes, all three of you) had reason to cheer on Tuesday, because a white RINO knight rode in to fill the void.

His name is Mitt. He hails from Utah. He is a RINO like no other RINO – the only living RINO who ran such a feckless presidential campaign that he ensured a second term in office for America’s Worst Mistake, Barack Hussein Obama.

Combining all the most detestable traits of the RINO community – disloyalty, venality, massive hubris and an unending willingness to consort with the enemy for self-aggrandizement – Mitt authored a hit piece aimed at President Donald Trump in one of the nation’s foremost anti-Trump fake news organs, the Washington Post. In it, the two-time loooooooooser in presidential politics said that Mr. Trump “has not risen to the mantle of the office.” Hashtag, irony.

Romney went on to signal that he will be every bit as disloyal to the GOP cause as was his philosophical doppelganger, Flake: “I will support policies that I believe are in the best interest of the country and my state, and oppose those that are not.” In RINO-speak, this means that he will be just another shill for the open borders policies favored by the Wall Street Journal and Chamber of Commerce, and a supporter of U.S. involvement in unending civil wars in a variety of nations across the Middle East and Africa. Bill Kristol and Jonah Goldberg will be thrilled.

Mind you, Romney was thrilled to have Donald Trump’s endorsement during his failed presidential run in 2012, and was just fine with having a widely-publicized private dinner with then-President Elect Trump in his quest to gain the appointment as Secretary of State. Classically typical of any RINO, Romney’s “principles” are extremely malleable.

So, no surprises here – same old Mitt Romney. If you liked Mitt in 2012, you will absolutely love him in 2019, as he becomes a safe 48th vote in the Senate on key issues for the Democrat Party. As one writer headlined, “Mitt Romney Just Joined the Resistance.” He’s Hillary Clinton in a Brooks Brothers suit.

Refusing to take the bait… – This morning, President Donald Trump (I never tire of typing those three glorious words) had a policy-focused response to Romney’s taunt:

Fauxcahontas has a clear [war]path to the Democrat nomination. – The fake Indian senator from Massachusetts chose New Year’s Day to formally announce her run for the presidency, informing her mostly wealthy, white-bread supporters that she has formed an exploratory committee in that regard. She will now begin the process of raising big wampum for her campaign, including travels to early primary states like Iowa and New Hampshire where she will smoke the peace pipe around many campfires with her party’s local chiefs and high muckety-mucks.

Her campaign got off to a very Michael-Dukakis-riding-in-a-tank start with the release of the video below, which includes a tense hug with her husband, a struggle to pop the top on a bottle of beer, and some cooking, all very odd signals for a supposed leftwing feminist to be sending:

If you look closely, you might also notice what appears for all the world to be a figurine of “Sambo” atop the cabinet directly behind the civil rights crusader’s head. You seriously cannot make this stuff up.

Well, that’s one way to put it…

Man, I thought she was dead…

No matter how absurdly Mitt Romney behaves, he can never out-do this guy…

This is how CNN entertained its viewers on New Year’s Eve…

What a way to start the year, huh?

That is all.
