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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

I’m cool with that.

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

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

That is all.

The Week in Review: Spying, Lying and Eunuchs, oh my!

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

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

The week began with the bag of scum named Preet Bharara admitting he actively plotted to reverse the results of the 2016 elections after Donald Trump was elected. Things got much, much better from there.:

See? There really is good news out there if you just look for it…:

I am so surprised to learn that this could happen in our public schools! said no adult who has ever dealt with the public schools in America.:

This about sums it up, all right.:

What if the Commie Mayor of New York City visited Nevada as part of a presidential campaign exploratory effort and nobody noticed?:

The ineffectual Kirstjen Nielsen got canned, and Larry Schweikart summed it up properly.:

Chris Coons demagogued the Neilsen firing, and pissed me off. Can you tell?:

James Woods with some really strong advice.:

One of the best parts of Twitter is reading all the enraged replies to the Babylon Bee by social justice warriors who are too dim to realize it is a parody account. Priceless.:

This was only the most predictable thing in the world.:

I’m not sure whether to laugh, cry, or just recoil in abject horror.:

The video of activist Candace Owens raking House Judiciary Democrats over their racist coals became the most-watched web-based video in C-Span’s history.:

Attorney General William Barr threw the Democrats and their news media co-conspirators into a panicked frenzy this week with his two days of congressional testimony. It was glorious.:

This happened on Wednesday.:

In the midst of it all, the shameless hacks at CNN just kept on doing what they do better than anybody else in the business, faking the news.:

No, times haven’t really changed much at all. All the racists in the un-doctored version of that photo were Democrats, too.:

GOP Texas Cong. Dan Crenshaw told the truth about Ilhan Omar’s despicable comments on 9/11. Democrats can’t handle the truth, so this tweet touched off a firestorm that raged through the rest of the week. *sigh*:

The Houston Chronicle embarrassed itself with this op-ed.:

AG Barr set the world afire once again with his clear-eyed admission that the Obama Administration was “spying” on the Trump Campaign. Democrats once again recoiled in abject horror at the truth finding its way into the public domain, because of course they did.:

CNN responded in very, very, very predictable fashion. The faked the news. *sigh*:

Oh, look. Bill Kristol thinks he still has “Republican friends.” Isn’t that precious?:

The hacks at Politico tried their best to keep up in the fakenews game by faking the news on…wait for it…a presidential visit to Mount Vernon.  I kid you not.:

Why yes, yes they are.:

Nick Searcy perfectly captures the essence of the Eric Swalwell for President campaign.:

I found the perfect screen shot of CNN’s little eunuch.:

Meanwhile, in news no American with a life gives a damn about…:

That’s a rhetorical question, right, Brit Hume?:

Hoping American taxpayers aren’t looking, makers of non-competitive electric vehicles campaigned to actually increase their already-princely taxpayer subsidies. Because of course they did.:

Also, this happened.:

Thursday was turning into a really epic day…:

Really, really epic…:

Some irrational tweets by mindless leftists require a rational answer.:

AOC decided to come to Ilhan Omar’s defense in a stupendously vapid way that only she could possibly achieve. For those unaware, Dan Crenshaw is a Navy Seal who fought for this country against terrorists in the Middle East, lost an eye in a roadside bomb attack, and is the recipient of a Purple Heart.:

The news of the indictment of Obama’s former White House Counsel was given less than a minute’s air time by the three major fake news networks. No surprise there, right?:

The latest media-created Democrat “Rising Star” was turning poor Beto into a has-been.:

By coincidence, my very thoughtful daughter and granddaughter bought me a fabulous new t-shirt. I’m wearing it, right now, in fact.:

Chevron bought out Anadarko in one of the biggest U.S. oil and gas mergers in the 21st century.:

Adam Schiff, whose home state has been using illegal immigrants as political pawns for decades now, tips off the Democrat/media talking points on Trump’s plan to relocate illegals to sanctuary cities. Hilarity ensuses.:

Speaking of our favorite pendejo, here he is, lying about the ongoing border crisis.:

Sure glad to see the Pentagon has its national defense priorities straight. *sigh*:

This bit of fakenews from Politico hasn’t held up well in light of current events.:

It’s the big one, Elizabeth! I’m comin’ to join you!:

We’ll close the week out with this one. If you want to understand the inner workings of the Democrat/media hive mind, it’s a good read. If you’re a Democrat, you should avoid it, since you might learn something.:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

That is all.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

But wait, there’s more!

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

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

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

*sigh*

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

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

Kamala would probably even let him call shotgun.

That is all.

Kirstjen Nielsen Resigns, and Nothing Much Will Change

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

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

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

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

A pox on all their houses.

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

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

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

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

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

Some campaign odd and ends:

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

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

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

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

Oh.

That is all.

Loser Stacey Abrams Personifies the Bizarre Requirement for Democrat Superstardom

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Look who’s leading those polls:

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

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

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

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

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

This is reality.

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

Republicans everywhere should rejoice.

That is all.

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

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

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

Here’s the full quote:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Ooof.

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

That is all.

The Week in Review: Mueller Delivers a Dud, Democrat Hopes Deflate

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

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

The week began with the @GOP celebrating St. Patrick’s Day in the most appropriate means possible, with a meme featuring the mug shot of everyone’s favorite El Paso Irishman. Things only got funnier and better from there, believe it or not.:

Rob Christie posts some of the funniest short videos on the Twitter platform. I thought this one was totes awesome.:

After more proof of John McCain’s mendacity in the spreading of the fake Trump Dossier emerged, Donald Trump was being criticized for lashing out at the dead Senator. Not surprisingly, I thought the President’s outrage was completely justified.:

Meanwhile, our next future president from Texas was hilariously lamenting NYU’s hiring of yet another radical leftist activist onto its faculty, which now rivals Harvard’s as the last American bastion of Soviet-style Marxism.:

Is anyone surprised that Dan Rather, the literal inventor of #fakenews, now turns up regularly as a contributor on CNN?:

On Monday, we learned that Fox News had hired Clinton toady Donna Brazile on as a paid contributor. Lanny Davis and Paul Begala were already tied up by CNN, so…:

The very entertaining Larry Schweikart noted a poll that turned out to be a bit of foreshadowing…:

Speaking of foreshadowing, James Woods hits this nail right square on the head.:

Things are not looking up for the presidential aspirations of Mayor Meatless Mondays…:

What do they put in the drinking water up there in the Bronx?:

This is 100% true and cannot be repeated often enough.:

Fauxcahontas was down in Mississippi interfering in another state’s business. Because of course she was.:

This guy should avoid trying to debate the merits of the Electoral College with the great Nick Searcy.:

If this bit of news about Irish Bob surprises you, you haven’t been paying attention. After all, later in the week we found out he fed his child’s poop to his wife as a practical joke. I’m thinking she probably was not amused.:

I’m pretty sure the TSA agent in this disgusting video is Joe Biden in a fat suit.:

Speaking of guys in a fat suit, I give you Kellyanne Conway’s husband, George. Oh, wait, that’s not a fat suit at all, is it?:

This was the only proper culmination for Nick Cage’s amazing career. He should announce his retirement immediately after the movie premieres.”

I’m not a fan of #NeverTrump nitwit Bill Kristol. Can you tell?:

Larry Schweikart does a great job of keeping up with special election results around the country. The Democrats’ rapid lurch to the far, far, far, lunatic left is creating a mini-wave for the GOP this year.:

We interrupt our politics to bring you wonderful news from America’s oil and gas industry.:

I’m not sure either of them is actually sentient.:

George Orwell was a London citizen when he wrote his famous book, “1984”. In today’s London, Orwell’s book would be banned as hate speech and he’d be tossed in prison for writing it.:

Irish Bob O’Rourke isn’t the only political loser who Democrats are obsessed with these days. Stacey Abrams is giving him a strong run for his money.:

Every once in awhile, the #fakenews hacks at Politico get something right.:

It seems like every week along about Thursday I get real tired of Jim Acosta’s crap. This week was no different.:

If you see some guy in a sheep suit seated at the Pai Gow table, eating dirt, that’s Irish Bob.:

When Greg Budell asked a very good question about the lack of coverage in the U.S. news media about America’s final defeat of ISIS, I had the right answer.:

You seriously cannot make these fake news people up.:

This cracked me up.:

As perhaps the world’s most avid fan of the film “Three Amigos” – which is the funniest script ever written – I have to give @Solmemes1 the award for greatest Twitter meme ever.:

Communists are so predictable.:

This bit of economic winning went largely unreported by our fake news media, but is a very key leading indicator of good things to come.:

Sorry. I just couldn’t resist.:

It’s true. And I won.:

Well, that was totally unexpected! said no one anywhere.:

Shameless self-promotion alert! – Robert Mueller sent his final report over to AG William Barr at 5:00 on Friday evening. 37 minutes later, I posted this sage analysis about what to expect next.:

Oh, it’s a joke, all right. A walking, talking, unshaven buffoon of a joke.:

This said it all about @BillKristol.:

This said it all as well.:

When will everyone wake up to the reality that most of these people are in fact themselves child molesters?:

MSNBC’s resident conspiracy theorist Rachel Maddow literally wept on live TV when she learned Mueller had found no evidence supporting the “Russia Collusion” fantasy she has promoted for the last two years.:

Well, they were never to be trusted before, either, so…:

Over at CNN, Brian Stelter was highly disappointed.:

The great James Woods offered the perfect capper to a wonderful week.:

That is all.

Joe Biden Continues the Democrat Obsession With Political Losers

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

The Democrat presidential nomination battle is already a three-ring circus, and the far left elements of the Democrat base are going to make sure it stays that way.

Yesterday, ex-Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper, who is struggling to gain a foothold in the race, found himself in trouble with the social justice warrior crowd when his effort to imply that a woman may well win the nominating contest fell flat with the humorless left.  The first mistake Hickenlooper made was accepting CNN’s invitation to get a little (very little, given CNN’s dwindling audience) free media by doing a televised town hall hosted by leftist activist Dana Bash on Wednesday night. The second mistake he made was to try to inject a little wit into any answer to any question, because he is trying to attract votes from the most witless element of our society.

When Bash asked him the standard question about whether or not he would name a woman as his running mate, Hickenlooper first said “Of course.” Had he just stopped right there and waited for the next question, he’d have been just fine. Unfortunately for Hickenlooper, he felt the need to expand. It all went downhill from there.

“But … I’ll ask you another question,” Hickenlooper said, “How come we’re not asking, more often, the women, ‘Would you be willing to put a man on the ticket?’”

Now, the ex-Governor’s intent there was to imply that, in this nominating race, it is entirely possible that a woman might win the nomination – his answer was a little back-handed jab at Bash for assuming a man is going to come out on top. With Sen. Kamala Harris currently running a strong third in the polls behind two pasty white guys who are older than the dirt Irish Bob O’Rourke eats for breakfast, and the Pantsuit Princess and Michelle Obama still lurking out there in the wings, it is certainly entirely possible the Democrat Party will once again have a female nominee in 2020.

But the leftist outrage mob has no sense of humor or understanding of this thing called “wit”, and is determined to be outraged. That determination meant that Hickenlooper’s remark was intended as a shot against women, not a compliment to them, as the outrage mob went berserk all over CNN, MSNBC and social media all day on Thursday.

The moral of this story? Understand your audience, Governor. Never try to inject wit into an answer when you’re seeking the votes of witless people. Just say “Of course”, accept the inevitable applause, and move on.

Speaking of moving on, the radical nutjobs at Moveon.org this week put out a demand to all of the Democrats running for the presidency to boycott this year’s meeting of the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) as an expression of their support for the wave of rank anti-Semitism that currently infests the American left. To no one’s surprise, at least eight of the candidates, eager to appeal to the growing Ilhan Omar faction of the demented Democrat voter base, have agreed to participate in the boycott.

Those agreeing to Moveon’s demand thus far include Kamala Harris, Irish Bob O’Rourke, The Commie, Fauxcahontas, Kirsten Gillibrand, Julian Castro, Pete Buttigieg, and Jay Inslee. No word yet from Hickenlooper, Biden, Amy Klobuchar, Andrew Yang or Cory Booker, but you can be sure they will all be under intense pressure today to follow their fellow spineless candidates over this anti-Semite cliff.

Then there’s Creepy Uncle Joe. The elderly, pasty-white guy from Delaware is anxious not to become the prime target of the mushrooming “we hate old white guys” faction of the party’s voter base. In the hopes of putting a beard on his blinding old white guy-ness, Biden is now floating a trial balloon in which he would promise to name failed Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams, who happens to be female and black, as his running mate.

So once again, this current Democrat obsession with political looooooooosers raises its curious head.  Nothing against Ms. Abrams, but she lost her race, lost it by more than 50,000 votes in fact, despite obviously benefiting from a pretty robust voter fraud operation and all the free media our fake news media could reasonably provide.

There are literally hundreds of successful, winning minority female politicians out there who Biden could have targeted for this trial balloon. For example, there’s Mad Maxine Waters, who for more than a year in 2017-18 was literally the demented face of the Democrat Party before the party’s leaders convinced her to tone things down. She’s won every election race she’s ever run – why not her?

Then there’s Texas congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee, who must be sitting around grumbling, “why not me?” Say what you will about Cong. Lee – and there are many, many things to be said about her – there is no denying that she has also been extremely successful in getting elected and repeatedly re-elected.

Speaking of winning Democrats who are making a real mark, there’s Cong. Ilhan Omar, who has now become the leading voice of anti-Semitism in America.  Why not her?

Or hey, how about a Hispanic 2018 gubernatorial candidate who actually won her race, like New Mexico’s Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham? Lord knows there are plenty of New Mexico citizens who would love to see her leave to run for Veep so they could get a do-over on that race.

But I digress.  The question here is why so much focus on Ms. Abrams, whose only actual experience in government is as a state representative who made no real mark in that role? Why was she chosen, out of all the possible candidates out there, to deliver the Democrat Party’s response to the State of the Union address? Why is this political loser considered to be such a rising influence within the Party?

Makes no sense to me.  But then, I’m not a Democrat.

Thank God.

That is all.
