Well, of Course Jeffrey Epstein Had a Portrait of Bill Clinton in a Dress on his Wall

Today’s Campaign Update, Part II

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

What, you expected anything else after all this time? Courtesy of the UK Daily Mail:

The color of the dress seemed to be a pointed reference to Clinton's former intern Monica Lewinsky who a blue dress during their infamous sexual encounter in the White House. The painting seemed to show Clinton in the Oval Office, with the presidential seal on display

You just cannot make this stuff up, folks. From the article linked above:

Jeffrey Epstein had a bizarre portrait which appears to be of Bill Clinton hanging in his Manhattan mansion, depicting the former president lounging on a chair in the Oval Office wearing red heels and a telling blue dress, a source exclusively told DailyMailTV

The color of the dress seemed to be a pointed reference to Clinton’s former intern Monica Lewinsky who a blue dress during their infamous sexual encounter in the White House. The painting seemed to show Clinton in the Oval Office, with the presidential seal on display

That’s some sick, sick stuff right there.

Have you also noticed that literally no one in our mainstream news media is putting any pressure at all on the Justice Department and FBI to get to the bottom of the Epstein “suicide?” Notice that their focus instead is on demonizing anyone who points out all of Epstein’s connections with notable liberal politicians and celebrities for being “conspiracy theorists?” Do you find it ironic that that particular line of demonization is coming from the very same media outlets who have spent the last three years obsessing over the debunked “Russia Collusion” conspiracy theory?

Do you think they’re projecting much?

And how about today’s non-crisis crisis diversion over the short-lived yield curve inversion? Wasn’t that a convenient way for the media to collectively avoid reporting anything about the Epstein case?

Can’t wait to see what the non-crisis crisis is tomorrow.

*sigh*

That is all.

No Sympathy for the Devil, er, Robert Mueller

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

Reminder: Arkancide can strike at anytime, anywhere. – Convicted and newly-accused pedophile and longtime friend of the Clintons Jeffrey Epstein was found “injured and in a fetal position inside his cell at a New York city jail” yesterday, according to officials involved in his current legal proceedings.

NBC Channel 4 in New York City reports that jail officials initially claimed the incident was the result of an attempted “suicide”, but Channel 4 says another source claims that “an assault has not been ruled out, and that another inmate was questioned.” Oh, you don’t say.

The story continues: “The inmate who investigators have talked to in Lower Manhattan facility has been identified as Nicholas Tartaglione, according to two sources. Tartaglione is a former police officer in Westchester County who was arrested in December 2016 and accused of killing four men in an alleged cocaine distribution conspiracy, then burying their bodies in his yard in Otisville in Orange County, according to court records.”

Sounds like a prince of a man. Hey, wonder if he’s ever been to Arkansas?

Sympathy for Robert Mueller? Sorry, I’m all out. – I was criticized yesterday for not showing proper “sympathy” for Robert Mueller, given his obviously diminished state. I received several notes pointing out that Mueller is after all an ex-Marine (we should all be grateful for that service) and that our real ire should be directed at the evil Andrew Weissman and the other Mueller bad hires who actually ran the two-year Witch Hunt and actually wrote the despicable final Mueller Report.

Well, sorry, folks, I’m not buying that nonsense. While Mueller is, as noted above, in an obviously diminished mental state and at this point appears to barely have his wits about him, let’s all review how he ended up in that witness chair yesterday:

  • It is well-documented that Mueller is in fact a very close friend of James Comey – despite his hemming and hawing on that yesterday – whose highly-justified firing was used by Rod Rosenstein as the pretense to create the Special Counsel investigation. That conflict of interest alone would have led an actual ethical person to refuse the appointment. Mueller didn’t care.
  • It is also well-documented that, in the week leading up to the appointment, Mueller held a series of meetings with Rosenstein – another close friend, another blatant conflict of interest – in which they discussed the prospect of his becoming Special Counsel.
  • Even worse, it is well-documented – despite Mueller’s half-hearted denial – that the day before he was appointed to become Special Counsel by his good friend Rosenstein, Mueller actually met with President Donald Trump himself, to discuss the open FBI Director’s position.
  • Mueller didn’t take this job on the spur of the moment, as so many in our fake news media have falsely claimed, he plotted to get this job.

Ask yourself: Are these the behaviors of an admirable man, a man for whom we should now have sympathy because he is obviously aging badly? But there is more, much, much more:

  • We are supposed to now be angered at Weissman, the “real” bad guy here (and he is a very, very bad guy), but who hired Weissman? Robert Mueller hired Weissman, knowing fully his sordid history of abusing his power and ignoring the law, and knowing fully his support of Hillary Clinton and personal animus towards President Trump.
  • Even worse than that, Mueller took the job knowing from Day 1 that, in the famous words of Super Duper ex-FBI Agent and aspiring Latin Lover Peter Strzok, there was no ‘there there.’ Mueller and everyone he hired knew from the first day on the job that “Russia Collusion” was a fantasy play invented by the DNC, the Clinton Campaign and Christopher Steele with cooperation from agents from a variety of foreign governments including – gasp! – RUSSIA.
  • Mueller took the job knowing that the job was in fact an attempt at a coup d’etat on American soil, an effort to remove a sitting, duly-elected President of the United States of America by whatever means he and his evil minions could concoct.
  • Regardless of who actually did the work, Mueller lent his name and reputation to this heinous enterprise, an act of mendacity of unprecedented scope and goal in American history.
  • Mueller’s name sat atop the Special Counsel’s offices, no one else’s. All the Gestapo tactics, all the despicable abuses of civil rights, all the early morning raids, all the torture-like imprisonments, all the bully tactics designed to force witnesses to lie to save their own skins – all of those things were conducted under the name of Robert Mueller, no one else.
  • The final report that was issued, the report that threw all semblance of legal ethics and due process so vital to our personal freedoms to the wind, is called “The Mueller Report,” not the Weissman Report. Regardless of who actually wrote the words in that report – words that continuously shocked and visibly surprised Mueller himself when read back to him yesterday – those words were written and published under the name of Robert Mueller, and Robert Mueller personally placed his signature on that report.

So, if y’all want to express your sympathy for Robert Mueller in his obviously-diminished state, you go right ahead. Do it and enjoy it and even signal your virtue about it on social media.

Me? I’ll reserve my sympathies for General Mike Flynn and Jerome Corsi and Roger Stone and George Papadopoulous and all the myriad other American citizens whose constitutional rights were abused and personal lives were destroyed under Mueller’s name. And I will remain angry about the evil fantasy play Mueller put our nation through for the last two solid years.

Damn him for doing it.

All that Post-Election Panic in 2016 Begins to Make Sense

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

[Editor’s Note: The Campaign Update will be silent from July 11 through July 23 because Dave needs some down time.]

Is it all starting to make sense to you now? – Are you starting to understand why the election of Donald J. Trump – a non-swamp creature with no ties to the Deep State – put the Democrats and establishment Republicans into such a state of outright panic?

In the wake of the arrest and charging of pedophile Jeffrey Epstein, does the focused campaign over the last three years by our fake news media and entertainment industry to normalize pedophilia in the public consciousness begin to make sense? As you discover all of Epstein’s relationships to not just the Clintons, but also to all manner of famous Democrats and media and entertainment figures, do you now understand why Hillary, after she was asked a few “tough” questions by disgraced sex abuser Matt Lauer during the 2016 campaign, scolded him that “we will all hang” if Trump were to win the election?  Which, incidentally, he did?

Are you now starting to understand why Slick Willie issued that classic Clintonian butt-covering statement to the press last night? Because everyone needs to understand that an ex-President would not have issued such a statement unless he knows some truly serious, damaging information is now in the hands of investigators.

Think about it: He already has 90% of the news media feverishly scrambling to cover for him. WikiPedia has already altered its page on Jeffrey Epstein to eliminate all mention of the Clintons. So there was no reason to issue that statement solely based on the information that is already public. The Clintons know that Slick’s name is all over the flight logs of the Lolita Express, and they know what Bill – and Hillary – did with Epstein over the years.

Now, they also know all of that information is in the hands of federal prosecutors, and they no longer have Eric Holder or Loretta Lynch or Robert Mueller or James Comey in power to cover for them. That’s why you saw Slick issue that statement last night. It’s the setting of a favorable narrative that is now being parroted all across our fake news media landscape, providing cover in preparation for the storm they know is coming.

This is no different than when, in 1998, Slick, then POTUS, wagged his crooked index finger at the cameras and said “I did not have sex with that woman, Miss Lewinsky.” It’s the setting of a damage control narrative. It’s what the Clintons do, and what they have always done.

And here’s the thing: It’s always worked for them before, but before, they’ve always had fellow swamp creatures in positions of high power to help cover for them.

How absurd is the claim of “I know nothing! Nothing!” by Sgt. Schulz, er, ex-President Clinton?  So ridiculous that reporter Conchita Sarnoff, who has spent the last decade investigating the case, outright called him a liar on national television Monday night. Watch:

Ouch.

The Campaign Update, as noted above, will be silent for the next couple of weeks as I go to recharge my batteries and get a little R&R. Some readers are scolding me that now is a bad time to be doing that because so much is going on. But think about the last few years and tell me when we had two weeks during which there was not a bunch of really important stuff going on.

The fact is, there are no longer any good times to do this, which is why I’m doing it now. See you in a couple of weeks!

That is all.

Michael Bennet: The Next Media-fed Democrat “Rising Star”?

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

[Editor’s Note: The Campaign Update will be silent from July 11 through July 23 because Dave needs some down time.]

Some interesting tidbits in the news this morning. Consider this:

“Americans demand climate action (as long as it doesn’t cost much),” writes Reuters analyst Valerie Volcovici. “Nearly 70% of Americans, including a majority of Republicans, want the United States to take ‘aggressive’ action to combat climate change — but only a third would support an extra tax of $100 a year to help, according to a Reuters/Ipsos poll.”

What do those results tell us? It tells us the vast majority of Americans understand in their hearts that the whole “Climate Change” alarmist industry is a giant scam, which is why they aren’t willing to spend any real money on it. But even many who recognize this will tell a pollster that they are for “aggressive” action to fight the scam because they feel pressured to signal the virtue of loving the “environment.”

Thus, the focused brainwashing campaign engaged in by our fake news media on this subject over the last 20 years or so has been amazingly ineffective, considering the billions of dollars they’ve invested in it. Perhaps that’s explained in part by the rising diversity of viewing options on TV, expansion of the Internet and the death of Democrat propaganda-driven newspapers.

Even the Sunday morning “news” shows are dying. The Washington Times this morning reports that the average audience for programs like “Meet the Press” and “Face the Nation” fell by 8% in 2018 and now attract an average audience of just 2.3 million viewers. The weekday evening newscasts, meanwhile, attract an average audience of just 5.3 million sets of eyes, a fraction of the number who tuned in 30-40 years ago. If nobody’s watching, the brainwashing doesn’t take.

This death of ratings for the broadcast TV networks exacerbates the problems for the Democrat Party in its ongoing efforts to dumb down and brainwash the American public, since any brainwashing campaign requires attention from the subjects. At the same time we see these “news” shows on ABC, NBC and CBS passing away, we are also seeing the ongoing collapse of ratings at CNN and MSNBC, a collapse that has only accelerated since the issuance of the Mueller report exonerating President Trump.

A new Democrat “rising star” on the horizon? Remember the name “Michael Bennet,” because I suspect he’s about to become the next media darling “rising star” in the Democrat race. The senator from Colorado was on Fox News Sunday yesterday, another of the low-rated Sunday shows whose audience is collapsing as host Chris Wallace tilts further and further to the political left.

Watching the interview, I was struck by what an accomplished and convincing liar Bennet is. He brought back memories of Bob Kerrey’s famous quote that “Bill Clinton is an unusually good liar.” Bennet has that same ability to tell bald-faced lies and convince you he really believes his own BS, a trait also possessed by Pete Buttigieg. Remember, I told you way back in March that Mayor Pete was probably going to have his own “rising star” moment after a similar interview on Fox News Sunday.

But Mayor Pete’s star is now fading after his lost weekend back in South Bend a couple of weeks back, so the Democrat toadies in the fake news media will be looking for a new date. The pickings are getting pretty slim at this point, so they will be looking around for someone who does well on TV, someone who is articulate, and someone who toes the leftist, SJW party line that attracts clicks and retweets.

The other guy to watch right now is Julian Castro, who, in addition to being a very convincing liar (though not quite as convincing as Bennet) also happens to be an actual minority, so he checks off the identity politics box that is so appealing to shallow Democrats. But the media has been trying to give Castro a boost for weeks now with gobs of free air time, and it just hasn’t been taking for whatever reason.

The other reason to think Bennet may be about to have a little boomlet is fundraising. In the second quarter, Bennet led all of the second tier candidates, raising $2.8 million from April through June. Castro bragged about a surge in his own fundraising following the debate, but has refused to release actual 2nd quarter numbers thus far, which obviously means he isn’t too proud of them.

So, expect to see Michael Bennet a lot more on your TV screens in the coming few weeks. After all, these fawning fake reporters have to have some Democrat to make goo-goo eyes at and whisper sweet nothings to, and Mayor Pete just isn’t getting it done for them anymore.

That is all.

Why Trump’s Sanctuary City Plan has Democrats so Enraged

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

Prepare for exploding Democrat heads all weekend long. – Smelling a golden opportunity handed to him by the Washington Post yesterday to keep an issue very favorable to him alive at the top of the news cycle this weekend, President Donald Trump (I never tire of typing those three glorious words) continued to push a plan to place all these tens of thousands of illegal aliens invading our Southern border into Democrat-run sanctuary cities with this tweet late Friday evening:

Given the left’s obsession with the President’s Twitter account, this single message alone most likely ensures that this topic will be first up on every Sunday morning fake news program. Regardless of how viciously the liberal talking heads attack President Trump on the issue, this will in fact amount to about five hours of free, favorable air time for the President and cause him to rise in the polls as a result. President Trump knows this, I know this, you know this, but it seems as if the vapid, TDS-enraged Democrats and their media co-conspirators will never figure it all out. I’m cool with that.

It’s important to understand why the Democrats and the fake news media are so enraged by this plan. The President may or may not be serious about it – that remains up in the air – but that really doesn’t much matter in the grand scheme of things. From the perspective of both President Trump and the Democrat leadership, it’s the simple fact of having the public debate over this idea that really matters, for a couple of big reasons.

I discussed one reason in last night’s Evening Campaign Update: The Democrats hate being forced to engage in this public discussion for the simple fact that it exposes the ultimate end game of their “sanctuary city” sham. Democrat mayors in Democrat-run cities from coast to coast have spent the last several years refusing to cooperate with ICE and other federal law enforcement agencies in a very organized effort to protect criminal illegal aliens who they view as ripe prospects for illegal voting in the near term. In the longer term, the Democrats hope these illegals will ultimately receive some sort of blanket amnesty and become a big, new voting bloc for their party.

Democrats don’t care if these criminal aliens are murderers or rapists – they truly don’t care. All they see and care about is potential votes, whether legal or illegal, because the overriding goal of the Democrat Party since the elevation of the Clintons has been simple: The acquisition and maintenance of political power.

Their problem with this public debate is that the President’s proposal makes all kinds of sense to anyone who is able to reason logically. This of course excludes mind-numbed Democrat voters, but they only make up about a third of the adult population. What frightens the Democrats and media so much is that independent voters are by and large able to reason logically, so when they hear this proposal, most of them think, “Ok, makes sense to me.” They then marvel that any Democrat politician, like San Fran Nan, whose own home city has been protecting murderers and rapists for over a decade now, would oppose it.

Oh, my, Democrats can’t have that, now, can they?

All of which leads to the second reason why the Democrats are so enraged by this plan: Because it negates their own long-term plan for placement of millions of illegal aliens into Republican and/or battleground states.

Starting in the Clinton Administration, the Democrat plan has been to keep as many illegals as possible in border “red” states like Texas and Arizona, so that when their longed-for amnesty comes about, those “red” states will suddenly turn into “blue” states. During the Obama years, that plan was broadened to include putting thousands of illegals onto planes and buses and shipping them to other “red” or borderline states like Michigan, Ohio, North Carolina, Colorado and Wisconsin for the same political ends.

They have almost gotten to critical mass now at which a blanket amnesty would in fact render all of those states – with the possible exception of Texas – as permanent Democrat states, making it virtually impossible for the GOP to ever elect another president.

This has been the long-term plan of the Democrat Party for a quarter of a century now. They cannot possibly conduct an honest public debate on the merits, so their immediate response is what we have seen: Have national Dems like Pelosi and Schumer and Beto and Mayor Pete demonize the President for his supposed “cruelty” in using all of these “innocent” illegals as “political pawns”, while the Democrat mayors of those sanctuary cities issue pious statements claiming that they would welcome such an influx into their already bankrupt towns as they pray to whatever god they might worship that it never happens.

Apparently, when President Trump broached this concept at a recent White House meeting a few weeks ago, it was quickly scuttled by then-Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen and her department’s lawyers. Nielsen simply lacked the intestinal fortitude to do what is necessary to stem this border invasion.

Kevin MacAleenan is now the acting Secretary of DHS. We may well find out very soon whether or not he has the stomach for the battle or not. This plan makes all kinds of good sense – which is why the Democrats and media are so outraged by it – and should be pursued by the President and his Administration in a very public and aggressive way.

Fill those sanctuary cities up with these invaders, Mr. Trump. Let the Democrats take full responsibility for their irrational sanctuary rhetoric. It will be a good lesson for all concerned.

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.

Get Ready for the Coming Impeachment of Donald J. Trump

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Mueller is “closing in” – on what, no one seems able to say. – Last week was the week when Robert Mueller started “closing in”. That’s what everyone in our fake news media kept telling us, anyway, so it must be true, right? Well…ok.

Supposedly, if all the talking heads on CNN and MSNBC are to be believed – which they most certainly are not – the sentencing memo related to Michael Cohen and the court filing in Mueller’s case against Paul Manafort contain all sorts of damaging allegations related to President Donald Trump. They are, in fake media parlance, the smoking guns that, for the 10,457th time over the last 3 and a half years, spell the “beginning of the end for Donald Trump.”

All this impeachment giddiness had bug-eyed Adam Schiff talking about President trump serving prison time on “Face the Nation” and despicable Jerrold Nadler promising to shut down all investigation into Democrat wrongdoing during 2016 when he takes control of the House Judiciary Committee come January. It was like Democrat Party Mardi Gras all weekend.

The problem for the Democrats is, last week’s events don’t really mean what they want us all to believe they did. The Cohen sentencing memo, filed by the Justice Department’s Southern District of New York (SDNY), is all about campaign finance and playmates and porn stars and hush money supposedly paid to them during the 2016 campaign. The same attorneys in the SDNY who refused to prosecute Barack Obama for more than $2 million in illegal campaign contributions taken in by his 2012 campaign are now supposedly going to indict a sitting president for $280,000 in payments that can only be classified as “campaign contributions” via very tortured legal logic.

The SDNY attorneys face several problems here, chief among them being that Justice Department rules dictate that no sitting president can be indicted while he’s in office. D’oh!

Problem number two is that, even if these hush money payments can be classified as campaign contributions, the Candidate himself has the ability to contribute an unlimited amount of money to his own campaign. The U.S. Attorneys suddenly concerned about the “sanctity” of campaign finance rules say he failed to report those “contributions,” which would be a technical violation supposedly committed by a candidate who did not even know they WERE contributions.

You’re going to send a sitting POTUS to jail for that? Really?  Good luck with that.

Problem number three is that, if Donald Trump is re-elected to a second term, the 5-year statute of limitations on campaign finance violations will have expired in 2021, 3 years before he leaves office.

Now, will the craven Democrats in the House of Representatives try to use the SDNY’s tortured logic as a reason to impeach President Trump? Sure, they will, but in doing so they will have to explain why this is an impeachable offense but Obama’s massive violations were not. Good luck with that, too.

The Manafort filing is just another Big Bag of Mueller Nothing, the kind of which we have seen in myriad leaks and filings and ham sandwich indictments from his office for more than 18 months now. Nothing about the “collusion” fantasy, nothing supporting any potential charge of obstruction of justice, nothing supporting anything remotely related to what Mueller was supposed to be looking into. But it did provide a lot of fodder for talking head panels on CNN and MSNBC to assassinate the President’s character and argue for impeachment, which is exactly what it was intended to do.

There is no doubt that President Trump is a man of low moral character, especially when it comes to his conduct in his married life. There is also no doubt that pretty much everyone who voted for Candidate Trump was well aware of this when they voted for him. After two full years of screaming first about their “Russia Collusion” fantasy and then about their “obstruction of justice” fantasy, the Democrats and our fake news media are going to try to force Mr. Trump from office because he might have, maybe, sort of, potentially violated campaign finance laws to cover up affairs.

Make no mistake about it, there will be impeachment hearings beginning early next year, for the simple reason that the Democrat Party stands for nothing else at the moment. The Party’s candidates did not campaign on any policy agenda this year, other than doing nothing more to change the failed Obamacare law and doing nothing to change our failed immigration system. The Democrats have always been really big on doubling down on abject failure, after all.

So, that’s what the next two years of American history are going to be – a long, painful slog in which the Democrats and their fake news media agents do pretty much nothing but try to reverse the results of the 2016 presidential election. There will be no major legislation passed through congress, which is fine with me, given that about 90% of the un-American legacy of Barack Obama has already been done away with in one form or another.

There will be no real budget bills, as the nation goes back to the decade of Harry Reid, in which the government was funded by an ongoing series of continuing resolutions. There will be no more tax cuts – or significant tax increases – no real efforts to reform immigration or healthcare or climate regulations or anything else at the federal level as the Democrat House and Republican Senate play a 24-month game of policy chicken and do little other than raise money for the 2020 campaign.

At some point – probably mid-to-late-2019 – after a seemingly endless series of nationally-televised impeachment hearings by multiple House committees chaired by despicable creeps like New York’s Jerrold Nadler, the Democrats in the House will successfully “impeach” President Trump in a party line vote. Some time after that, the Republicans in the Senate will refuse to remove the President from office, again on a purely party line vote.

It will be an instant replay of 1999, only with the party roles reversed. Then the election campaigns will gear up and dominate the rest of 2019 and all of 2020, as the voters decide who to punish for the two-year fiasco.

It’s key to remember that, after impeaching Bill Clinton in 1999, the Republican Party paid dearly at the polls in 2000, losing their six-year House majority in the process. With President Trump’s public approval ratings holding stubbornly firm at pretty high levels for a president at this point in his first term in office, the Democrats pursue this impeachment strategy at their own risk.

And pursue it they will.  Because they are otherwise bankrupt as a Party.

That is all.

Kamala Harris is not Ready for Democrat Nomination Prime Time

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

A little better due diligence seems in order here. – Comic actor Kevin Hart will never be remembered as the best or worst host of the Academy Awards ceremonies, but he will be remembered has the host who never got to actually host the show.

Hart accepted the gig on Tuesday, but then gave it up on Thursday after it was revealed he had sent out tweets several years ago that were insulting to gay folks.  This action shows the Academy Awards at least have some standards for their hosts to live up to, but that those standards only apply to the insulting of people in certain protected classes.  This is no surprise given that the event is run by leftists and that is how leftists conduct themselves in their daily lives as well.

Meanwhile, over at MSNBC, host Joy Ann Reid, found several months back to have been guilty of exactly the same insensitive Twitter activities in which Hart engaged, still has her gig.  And so does Chris Matthews, who was revealed several months back to be a serial harasser of women in the workplace.

Dang, MSNBC – when you have lower standards for behavior than the Academy Awards, you really, truly suck as an organization.

More perjury opportunities, coming right up! – Former FBI Director and current aspiring Teenage Drama Queen James Comey will be testifying before the House Judiciary and Oversight Committees up on Capitol Hill today.  Unfortunately, the Republicans who insisted on his coming up to lie to them yet again seem to be woefully – and typically – disorganized, and divided on what they actually want to question him about.

Some want to ask more about the Clinton email fake investigation that Comey dummied up in 2016, others want to focus on the whole “Russia collusion” fantasy, and nobody appears to be in charge. So, it will be another wasted opportunity to edge closer to the truth, in all likelihood. Maybe that’s why the Rs insisted the hearing be held behind closed doors.

Byron York, meanwhile, has published a terrific list of 10 suggested questions the Rs might ask Comey about his role in the entrapment of General Mike Flynn. Forcing the Drama Queen to answer those questions would either be very revealing and damaging to him, Peter Strzok and Robert Mueller, or force Comey to commit more perjury – in other words, a win/win situation. Sadly, we can be about 98% sure no one on the Republican side will bother to read the piece, or ask these questions in their last chance to get at some truth before the Democrat majorities take over in January and start sweeping all the Clinton/Comey/Mueller wrongdoing under their very lumpy rug.

What a waste.

From our You Seriously Cannot Make This Stuff Up Files:

The Girl Isn’t Ready. – Over the last 32 years I’ve written many times about the unarguable fact that, to win the Democrat Party’s presidential nomination, a candidate must prove to be an especially accomplished and shameless liar. From Michael Dukakis to Bill Clinton to Al Gore to John Kerry to Barack Hussein Obama to the Pantsuit Princess, the nominees the Democrat Party has offered up to the American people over the last three decades reads like the murderers row in the grand pantheon of deceptive history.

Democrat voters just love to be lied to. As my hero Walt Longmire would say, “It’s a simple fact.”

Enter Kamala Harris, about whom there has been so much talk that she could become the Democrats’ next flag-bearer. Folks, she isn’t nearly good enough to get it done. One of her top aides resigned this week when his $400,000 settlement of a sexual harassment lawsuit several years back finally made the news, and all Sen. Harris could think to do was claim she didn’t know anything about it.

Now, that’s an obvious lie – how, after all, could the boss remain unaware for years that one of her top subordinates was a sex harasser? – but it is neither a creative nor convincing lie, and Democrat voters demand creative and convincing liars.

Think about it: Al Gore has made himself a near-billionaire by mounting a massive propaganda campaign, complete with not one, but two movies, over the last 20 years to support his lies about “climate change.” Hell, Bill Clinton literally reinvented the meaning of the word “sex” to support his lies about Monica Lewinsky. The Pantsuit Princess made up so many different lies about her illegal email server that she finally just lost track of them and needed Comey to use half of the DC office of the FBI to help her cover it all up.

Folks, those are the kinds of lies that qualify someone to become the Democrat Party’s nominee for the presidency. A simple denial, like the one offered by Senator Harris on Thursday does not, after all, entertain the Democrat masses, and the Democrat masses must be entertained.

Unless she gets a whole lot better at this real fast, we can pretty much write Kamala Harris off as a serious contender.

This also happened on Thursday:

Paris Burning Watch:

A new poll out this week shows boy Prime Minister Emanuel Macron’s approval among the French public now down to a microscopic 18%. Remember, this is the guy all the #NeverTrump nitwits were praising just a year ago as the real kind of leader America needs in the presidency.

Meanwhile, the approval rating for President Donald Trump (I still never tire of typing those three glorious words) remains at 50% in the current Rasmussen survey.

As the #NeverTrump flagship publication, The Weekly Standard, teeters on the brink of going out of business, there is a lesson to be learned in all of this. But you can bet that TWS editors Bill Kristol, Stephen Hayes and all of their #NeverTrump Nitwit army will fail to learn it.

That is all.

Another Day, Another Failed Fake Media/Democrat Narrative

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Your fake news media in action! – NBC is under fire for having sat for more than three weeks on a story that would have helped to clear Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s name before the vote on his confirmation took place on October 6. Turns out that NBC reporter Kate Snow, in filing the fake news network’s original story on the gang rape claims being pushed at the time by nutjob Julie Swetnick and the Creepy Porn Lawyer, conveniently left out the fact that one of the “corroborating witnesses” the CPL had provided completely contradicted the key parts of Swetnick’s false story.

So, after Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley filed his first of two criminal referral letters related to Swetnick and CPL on Thursday (he filed a second letter on Friday), Snow and NBC apparently decided they better come clean and actually report the exculpatory evidence they had withheld, probably in an effort to  avoid the receipt of subpoenas from the Justice Department. Younger people expressed shock on social media Friday about NBC’s despicable behavior, but those of us old enough to remember the Bill Clinton/Monica Lewinsky scandal know it’s just par for the course.

After all, the Drudge Report became a big thing 20 years ago when Matt Drudge discovered that Newsweek and reporter Michael Isikoff had been sitting on the Lewinsky story for months in an effort to protect the predator Democrat President, and broke the story on his then-fledgling news-aggregation website.  There have been countless other examples of fake media outlets withholding what would be huge, possible Pulitzer Prize-winning stories in desperate efforts to protect their Democrat masters.  NBC itself was revealed just a year ago to have refused to allow Ronan Farrow to publish his #MeToo movement creating story about the disgusting abuser and huge Democrat donor Harvey Weinstein, which led to Farrow taking his research over to The New Yorker instead.

Protecting Democrats and violating journalistic norms to try to damage Republicans is what your fake news media does.  They believe it is in fact their duty.  Once you accept this reality, everything they do makes perfect sense.

Probably because she just won’t shut up and leave us alone. – Speaking of fake media outlets, the Washington Post has a Trump-bashing piece up this morning titled, “Why are we still talking about Hillary Clinton?”  Seriously, is there really some mystery here?  I honestly don’t recommend you waste your time reading it – just thought it was incredibly ironic, given the Pantsuit Princess’s own behavior, that such a piece could even be conceived and written, much less actually make its way into publication.

Optics are why Trump won, and they’re why this fake pipe bomb fiasco won’t impact the elections. – So, here are the optics of this whole fake pipe bomb deal:

President Donald Trump’s Justice Department just went balls to the wall to protect a group of the President’s most vicious critics who were being mailed fake bombs that posed no real threat to them. The initial arrest was made less than 72 hours after the “crisis” narrative arose.

Meanwhile, the Democrats and the fake news media are using the apparent Trump-supporting identity of this lunatic as a weapon to demean and libel not only the President of the United States, but any and all of Trump’s millions of loyal supporters as well.

Honestly, I’m not sure you could find a better way to ensure about a 99% turnout by Trump supporters to get out and vote in this election.

Think about it:  Mr. Trump, both as candidate and as President, has now held over 100 of his famous political rallies since 2015.  Those events have been attended by upwards of a million people, probably even more than that.  In all of those rallies, the fake news media has been able to capture exactly one violent act by a single Trump supporter, an elderly man who threw a harmless punch at a young protester who was being escorted out of the arena at one of the 2016 campaign events.

Now, we have a second apparent Trump supporter who is alleged by the FBI to be the person who has somehow sent 13 of these fake pipe bombs to various critics of the President.  I say “alleged” because, given that at least several of these packages were obviously not delivered by the U.S. Postal Service, since photos of them clearly show the packages were not postmarked, the FBI has yet to adequately explain how one guy driving an extremely distinctive white van could have caused all these packages to have been hand-delivered to various destinations all over the country within 36 hours of each other.

But I digress.

So we have this one guy out of more than a million who have attended Trump rallies, and out of more than 60 million who voted for him in 2016, an obvious dimwitted steroid freak who we’re supposed to believe is some criminal mastermind with almost magical powers of transporting himself and his fake bombs all over the country, and our fake news media and their Democrat masters are tarring and feathering the entire Trump supporter base with his actions.

I don’t really know what to say other than to point out that stuff like this is exactly why Trump got elected in the first place.  This constant, unending demeaning and slandering of ordinary Americans whose main desire in life is to be able to quietly live their lives with their friends and families in peace and some semblance of freedom from oppression by the government and assault from the elite political class is what caused millions of us out here in Flyover Country to not just accept Trump as a better option to the career criminal being offered up by the Democrats, but to ultimately become excited about rallying to his cause in 2016.

This week alone has already seen the utter collapse of two major Democrat/media narratives:  The Khashoggi thing that no ordinary American had time to care about, and the obviously-staged “migrant caravan” narrative that has backfired hugely on the Democrats.

This fake pipe bomb deal is well on its way to become the third major backfiring narrative in a single week.  That has to be some sort of record, doesn’t it?

Just another day in fake news media collapsing narratives America.

That is all.
