Senator Graham Transitions From RINO to Trumpist on Immigration

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

So, you’re sayin’ there’s still a chance. –  Hearts went to palpitating at fake media outlets all over the Texas news media yesterday when their hero, Irish Bob “Beto” O’Rourke, said he just might be running for president in 2020. At least, that’s the way Irish Bob’s comments are being breathlessly reported on your Texas-based radios and televisions this morning.

Of course, as is so often the case with our fake news media reporting on Irish Bob, the reporting isn’t exactly right. What the eternally cute and fidgety Democrat boy toy actually said was this:

O’Rourke said that he had just returned from a vacation with his family and was enjoying being home in El Paso. “That’s what we’re focused on now,” he said. “Just being together as a family, making sure I deliver everything I can to the people I represent until Jan. 3. Then Amy and I will think about what we can do next to contribute to the best of our ability to this community,” he said.

Then he looked at his wife in the audience. “Amy, how was that?”

In other words, the beloved Beto did not say he might be running, he just didn’t say an outright, unqualified “no” when asked. But that was enough to set our “Dumb and Dumber” fake news media off on another round of Betomania promotion.

Because of course it was.

Oh, and by the way, he’s running. There’s way too much money in it for him to do anything else.

Ocasio Cortez Watch:

Irish Bob’s ideal running mate when 2024 comes around got into a little dust-up on Twitter with Senator Lindsey Graham on Monday.  It went something like this:

Bazinga!

Speaking of Senator Graham… – The Senator from South Carolina has been on a roll lately.  I missed this on Sunday, but he sent out a couple of tweets that afternoon that deserve to be noted, mainly because Graham has in the past – while he was following John McCain around like a little puppy dog – always been a dove on illegal immigration:

Folks, when we have looming armies of illegal immigrants behaving so badly at our Southern border that even Lindsey Graham is ready to just shut it down, what we have is an invasion, plain and simple.

Never forget that that’s what this is: An invasion. Because words are important, and so is recognizing things for what they are.

It is also very important to remember that the people in these “caravans” have no legitimate claim to asylum in the United States. Asylum is meant for those fleeing wars or other violent oppression from the government in their home country. The best fake argument that Democrats and our fake news media can come up with for these folks is that they are “fleeing gang violence,” a term we see and hear repeated ad nauseum in almost every fake news media report on the matter.

Look, people in Chicago have a real problem with gang violence. So do folks in Los Angeles and New Orleans and most other Democrat-run big cities in the United States. No one in the Democrat Party or our fake news media is saying that their constituents in those cities have some sort of unfettered right to form up “caravans” of 5,000 people and storm into Canada.

These people are “fleeing” poverty, nothing else. Most of them freely admit that whenever one of the few moderately-curious “journalists” embeded with them ask why they want to come to America. Some of them are looking for work, others are simply looking to get on America’s public dole, which Democrats have made so easy to abuse.

Even if this bunch had legitimate claims to asylum, they are in that case obligated under international law to seek it in the first foreign country they enter, which would be Mexico. Mexico’s government has generously offered asylum to every one of these people, most of whom flatly turned it down. Real “asylum seekers” don’t get to do that. Fake ones do, apparently.

In situations like this, liberals love to get all teary-eyed and quote the poem on the Statue of Liberty, as if it is some sort of law (it isn’t).  Here is what that poem says:

“Give me your tired, your poor, Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free, The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.”

Here is what that poem does not say:

“Give me an army of thousands of mostly military-aged males, your gangsters yearning to crash through our border checkpoints, The wretched grifters wishing to plant the flag of their home country on our soil and live off the generosity of our taxpayers.”

We are a nation of immigrants, that much of the liberal dogma on this subject is true.  Legal immigration through an orderly process in which our country gets to decide, through its sovereign rights, who does and does not get to enter our shores, is a good and positive thing.

But this – this invasion – is not a good thing at all. Thank goodness we have a President who sees the situation for what it is, and deals with it properly despite all the false hysteria emanating from the other side.

That is all.
Postscript: I meant to include this terrific tweet from Buck Sexton in the original piece, but forgot.  So, a little late, here it is:

Perfect.

That is really all.

Refugees From Central America or From California – Pick Your Poison

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Well, it took about a year longer than I figured it would, but hey, NBC has very low standards for their on-air talent. – Megyn Kelly appears to have been canned by NBC on Thursday for having violated the rules of political correctness on her extremely low-rated morning program on Tuesday.  The fake news network had been casting around for a good reason to eat the remaining tens of millions left on Kelly’s hilariously-unjustified $69 milllion contract, and she finally provided them with a good enough excuse.

As a refugee from Fox News, and an imperious and obnoxious one at that, Kelly was roundly detested by basically everyone she came into contact with at NBC, and thus had no internal support base to defend her when she made her remarks on Tuesday, which basically amounted to “it was ok for a white kid to dress up as Dianna Ross for Halloween when I was a kid.”

To be clear, not it wasn’t.  Megyn Kelly was a kid in the Albany area of New York in the 1970s and 1980s, and no, it was not ok in the 1980s to put black-face makeup on your white kid and dress them up in an afro and sparkly dress and try to pass her off as Dianna Ross.  That stuff all went out the window in the late 1960s, along with re-runs of Amos ‘n Andy and Jim Crow laws.

Kelly issued a tearful on-air apology on her Wednesday show, which would have been enough for any of the other on-air “talent” at NBC, but could never be enough for someone known to harbor – gasp! – conservative points of view.  Plus, her show was a disaster from day one, so NBC grabbed the excuse to get her off the air and out of its hair.

I do not feel even a little bit of sympathy for Kelly, who is one of the most over-rated people I’ve ever observed in any profession.  But everyone should understand that her treatment by NBC right now is completely biased and unfair.  If NBC wanted to simply fire her because her program is a dumpster fire, that would be totally justified, because that is absolutely the case.  But firing her for making an admittedly stupid on-air comment for which literally no one else at NBC would be fired is wrong.

The truth is that Kelly’s biggest mistake – her “original sin” in NBC’s eyes – was not becoming a wild-eyed leftist on-air when she moved to NBC so she would fit in with all the other on-air talent.  That’s what Alisyn Camerota did when she moved from Fox News to CNN, and she is completely ensconced as the permanent host of a morning show over there that no one watches.  Camerota could say exactly what Kelly said and no one would blink an eye.  Why?  Because she is always mindlessly leftwing in her views, always adheres strictly to the daily DNC talking points, and thus no one at CNN would ever think of her ever intentionally being politically incorrect.

Dang, have I really just written 550 words about Megyn Kelly?  Enough.  Let’s move on.

Speaking of refugees, isn’t it amazing how the fake news media has stopped speaking of them? – Seriously, the obviously-staged “migrant caravan” that had been almost the sole focus of our fake news media for 10 solid days suddenly disappeared from our TV screens entirely yesterday in favor of the incredible un-explosive pipe bomb story.  Funny how that happens, huh?

Well, the “caravan” is still there, still heading up the western side of Mexico, the “refugees” still getting coached about what to say by their Democrat organizers for when they arrive at the U.S. border.  The current size of the caravan is variously estimated to be 3,600 by the Mexican government, 7,000 or 14,000, depending on which fake news media source you wish to believe.  In fact, the Mexican government claimed yesterday that something around 1,500 of the “refugees” who are supposedly fleeing “gangs” in their home country of Honduras have sought and been granted asylum in the gang-dominated failed state of Mexico.  Go figure.

We’re almost two weeks into this story and we have yet to see one single, solitary Democrat express the desire to protect our nation’s sovereign right to decide who we allow to come into our country.  Not one.  Think about that:  I just showed you a video in Monday’s Update of Barack Hussein Obama aggressively expressing his view in 2005 that the U.S. must control illegal immigration.  That’s just 13 years ago, and you can go out to YouTube and see similar videos of luminaries like Harry Reid, Hillary Clinton, Bill Clinton, Dianne Feinstein and Chuck Schumer saying the same things.

That was, of course, before the elevation of Obama to the presidency and the reorganization of the entire Democrat Party on Saul Alinsky Rules for Radicals principles.  Today, instead of pretending to be the protectors of working class Americans, the Democrats favor opening up our borders completely in order to create as much societal chaos as possible and in the belief that these millions of people fleeing failed socialist states will come into America and continue favoring the same failed socialist policies because that is all they know.  They’re probably right, and if they can ever succeed in getting all these millions of illegal aliens voting rights, the Democrats could once again become our dominant political party and implement their long-desired socialist nirvana that would completely destroy America as we know it.

Hell, they’re already making progress in that regard just from all the Californian refugees that have relocated to other states in the past 20 years.  Look around the country right now and you see all these tight races in states like Montana, Nevada, Arizona and Colorado, states that had been reliably “red” states that are now on the verge of turning completely blue.  They also happen to be states that have had large influxes of citizens fleeing the socialist nirvana of California in recent years.

In their political behavior, Californians are no different from these Central American refugees:  They flee their home state due to the high taxes and brutal regulations implemented by the socialist government there which have made it incredibly hard for middle class Americans to make a living, own a home and live a semi-free life.  But, when they arrive in their new state, they just keep on voting for the same Democrat types who created all the governmental chaos that led them to flee in the first place.

That is how you get a down-the-line leftwinger like Montana’s Jon Tester, one of Chuck Schumer’s most reliable votes, positioned to possibly win re-election against a pretty strong Republican candidate.  It’s how you get to the point where the voters in Colorado are about to slit their own economic wrists by passing a ballot initiative that would basically outlaw drilling for incredibly abundant oil and gas reserves there.  It’s how you get a limp-wristed jerk like Jeff Flake representing Arizona, and a neck-and-neck race between a strong GOP candidate who is a true American hero and a radical leftist Democrat who has no real qualifications for the job to take Flake’s place.

Thus, while Democrats everywhere are anxious as they can be to let as many illegals as they possibly can from Central America and all other failed socialist states into our country, the reality is that they are already beginning to achieve their goals simply by continuing to destroy California’s middle class and forcing it to move to other states.  It’s one of the great ironies of our time.

Maybe it is time for leaders in these other states to force anyone moving to their state from California to spend time in some sort of re-education facility before joining the general population.  These people obviously need some de-programming to get the California mindset out of them so that they can become actual productive members of society again.  Call it a matter of self-preservation.

That is all.

This was not the plan for the Fake News Media. Oh, no – not even close.

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

This was not the plan for the fake news media.  Oh, no – not even close.  Part I – President Donald Trump held another of his raucous rallies in South Carolina on Monday, this one in support of the re-election of Governor Henry McMaster, and things just did not go well, not well at all for CNN’s poor little Jim Acosta.

First, well before the evening’s program got underway, Acosta was, ahem, ‘accosted’ by someone’s great-grandmother, an older lady who decided it would be fun to hang out near the CNN position waaaayyyyy at the back of the hall and repeatedly shout “get him out!  get him out!”  You know, the kind of behavior that CNN loves to award copious amounts of air time whenever it comes from anyone on the political left.

Things just got worse for the little fake reporter when he went on-air for a live shot at his seditious network.  As Acosta went into his standard, tiresome anti-Trump screed, the crowd erupted with chants of “Go home, Jim!” and “CNN go home!”  Then, to top things off, one enterprising guy got close enough to get his “CNN Sucks” sign into the shot, and remained in the shot on live CNN feed for a good 15 seconds.

Of course, since these were Trump supporters and not professional leftwing agitators, this was all in good fun.  No one was threatened, no one was assaulted, no one was harmed, and many in the crowd actually came over to Acosta and other members of the press to take selfies and get autographs.  Because these people are Americans who love America, not a bunch of paid agitators.

But, well, CNN does suck, and Acosta is one of the main reasons why.

 

This was not the plan for the fake news media.  Oh, no – not even close.  Part II –Hey, check out this tweet from ABC News and the film embedded in it:

You know what that is?  That is President Donald J. Trump forcing the unwilling fake journalists at ABC to accidentally cover what is actually happening every hour of every day along our country’s border with Mexico.  That report actually aired on ABC’s prime time newscast, something the network would have never dreamed of airing just two weeks ago.

Here are other long-ignored border-related issues that the fake news media has accidentally been forced to cover in its efforts to support its Democrat wards on this fake “don’t separate the families!” issue:

  • Child trafficking and human smuggling;
  • Sex slavery, often involving young children;
  • Mexican gang warfare, often taking place north of the border;
  • How deeply these gangs, including MS13, have infiltrated our nation’s cities;
  • How woefully under-staffed our Border Patrol is;
  • The fact that 4 out of 5 of the kids in these holding centers are unaccompanied minors;

This list of border issues long ignored by the fake news media because they reflect badly on their political wards could go on and on.  If you are wondering why this issue is polling horribly for the Democrats, this is why:  Millions of Americans who stupidly depend on the major TV networks and CNN for their “news” have learned about the issues above for the first time over the past two weeks.

And then, of course, there’s Maxine Waters.  The Braying Buffoon has gone and gotten herself in a pickle with her clear incitements to violence over the weekend.  The ugly film of her repugnant screams has done irreparable damage to the increasingly depraved and despicable Democrat Party, and will no doubt provide dozens of Republican congressional candidates with fodder for extremely effective campaign ads in the Fall.

How bad is it for the Dems, you ask?  It’s so bad that both Chuck Schumer and San Fran Nan felt the need to repudiate Waters’ actions on Monday.  Schumer did so directly with a speech on the Senate floor, and Pelosi did it indirectly in a tweet, because that’s the kind of political coward she truly is.

Trust me on this, folks:  Neither Schumer nor Pelosi would have said a damn thing about the Mad Maxine incitements unless they had received some extremely negative polling and/or focus grouping information.  Those are the only things that motivate any Democrat politician to do anything.  Well, other than money.

Before any of you goes and gives these two slimeballs any credit at all for doing the right thing here, you need to remember that they and their silence are the main reasons why we have arrived at this point to begin with.  These two and every other leader in the Democrat Party have remained disgracefully silent through 20 months of riots, violent protests, public assaults on Trump supporters, public assaults on Trump officials, spying on Trump and his people by the FBI and a trumped-up Special Counsel witch hunt, all of which have combined to create the current toxic atmosphere in our public discourse.

Had either of these two clowns, or Hillary Clinton or Barack Obama or even Bernie Sanders had the personal integrity to speak out and condemn the rising violence and anti-social behavior on the political left since Election Day 2016, things would have immediately calmed down.  But they all – every one of them – bought into the “Resistance” and adopted it as their Party’s sole platform for the 2018 elections.

They all remained silent because, hey, this was the plan.  It’s been the plan all along, and save for the situations in which an idiotic rant by the Braying Buffoon costs them in the polls, it will remain the plan going forward for one simple reason:  The Democrat Party is bankrupt of ideas.

Think about it:  Everything the Democrat Party has stood for during the Obama Administration has been revealed to have been a lie.  The “new normal” of less than 2% economic growth?  A lie.  If you like your plan you can keep your plan?  A lie.  The Paris Climate Accords?  A pathetic lie.  You can’t just wave a magic wand and make those manufacturing jobs reappear?  A pathetic lie.  It’s impossible to root out ISIS?  A disgraceful lie.  We can’t drill our way to energy security?  A laughable lie.  The Iran deal?  A despicable lie.  You can’t talk to North Korea and get anything out of it?  A disgusting lie.  Open borders are good for the country?  A nation-ending lie.

These are desperate people now, because nothing they do works.  President Trump’s polling numbers have actually risen over the past two weeks amid all the fake hysteria about the border.  They are utterly shocked by this and have no idea what to do to change the dynamic.

Thus, they will do what they’ve done for the last 20 months:  Gradually try to drop this subject and move on to another faked-up scandal.  Because that really is all they got.

Just another day in November is going to be a Red Wave wipeout America.

That is all.

Melania Trump trolls the media, media too dumb to figure it out.  Film at 11.

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

It’s just like that trash compactor scene from Star Wars, only R2D2 won’t be saving him. – The walls of the justice system closed in a little more on FBI Super Duper Agent and Aspiring Latin Lover Peter Strzok, as Attorney General let slip during an interview that hey, his security clearance has been revoked.  Note for the faint of heart:  This film does not have a happy ending for the former Texting Titan of the FBI.

Gosh, why would that be?  So, so hard to understand.  Oh, wait…  – A new poll from YouGov.org finds that public favorable view of the Federal Bureau of (fake) Investigation has dropped by 11 percentage points since February, as the details of the agency’s massive wrongdoings throughout 2016 and 2017 have made their way to light despite the best efforts of our fake national news media to keep them hidden.  The most disgusting part of the poll is that the FBfI’s most favorable ratings come from Democrats, who spent the 100 years prior to the inauguration of Donald Trump bashing the agency.  But hey, now they know it was nothing more than a tool of the Democrat Party trying to fix the election for the Pantsuit Princess, they love it.  It would be hilarious if it weren’t so sad for the country.

Speaking of polls, this whole fake border crisis isn’t working out too well for the fake news media and their Democrat wards.   A new poll from Rasmussen finds that fully 54 percent of likely voters blame the parents of these children for their situation (imagine that) and only 35 percent blame the government.  No doubt heads were exploding all over the headquarters of the DNC, CNN, the NYTimes and the WaPo after that poll came out.  This is not how this was supposed to go for them.  Not at all – not even close.

Democrats in Action! – Democrats on Tuesday:  “End family separation! End family separation!”

[Trump ends family separation]

Democrats on Thursday: “End family reunification! End family reunification!”

*sigh*

Melania Trump trolls the media, media too dumb to figure it out.  Film at 11. – The First Lady traveled to McAllen on Thursday to visit one of the facilities that is at the center of the latest episode of fake liberal outrage.  As she boarded Air Force One, all the fake reporters gasped in unison as they noted she was sporting a $39 jacket, on the back of which was the slogan “I don’t really care, do U?”

As if it were all a coordinated effort (note: it is), the entirety of the nation’s fake news media went immediately into deflection mode, ignoring the First Lady’s long, detailed visit with the children in the McAllen facility and her discussions with those who care for them, focusing instead on her fashion choice.  What does it mean?  Is she making a statement towards these poor, poor children?  Maybe she’s mad a her evil husband – that must be it!

All the social justice warriors on Twitter also went into an immediate rage, because, well, of course they did.  When one asked me “can you imagine what would be happening if Michelle Obama wore that jacket?” I responded “no, because I can’t imagine Michelle Obama ever putting on a $39 jacket.”

Several hours after the First Lady returned to Washington, we of course found out it was all an effort to tweak the fake news media’s collective nose, as the President issued the following tweet:

Hilarious.  Obviously, the White House strategy on this fake border issue is not just to let the Democrats and their fake media guardians wail away and reveal they don’t really give a damn about any kids, but to help them along by trolling them as the First Lady did yesterday.  While some might characterize that as callous, it is in fact entirely appropriate to the situation.

Think about it:  The outrage is false.  Pretty much every allegation leveled at the Trump Administration has been shown to be false.  Most of the images and video shown by the fake news media has been revealed to be from the Obama years, during which the media/Democrats never uttered a peep.  Even the little girl on the cover of Time Magazine has been shown to be a fake – she was never at any time separated from her mother.

The obvious next tactic the media/Democrats will be deploying today will be allegations that the children are somehow being “abused” by those caring for them.  By Monday, those allegations will also be proved to have been false, because this is what our fake news media does.

Given all of that, why should the Administration do anything other than taunt their opposition, and troll them into revealing their true nature and goals?  When literally everything about the opposition is fake, the opposition does not deserve a serious response.

And hey, as I write this piece this morning, President Trump has issued the following tweets:

Ok, I can stop now.

Just another day in now even Melania’s trolling the fake news media America.

That is all.

Today’s Campaign Update (Because The Campaign Never Ends) – 4.12.2017

  • Ok, just shoot me now – I can’t take anymore of this.:  LA Times fake writer Micheal Hitzak, a winner of the fake Pulitzer fake Prize for fake journalism, theorized on Tuesday that President Trump and United Airlines CEO Oscar Munoz conspired to create the airline’s current fiasco in order to distract attention from other Administration controversies.  Honest.  I swear.  You just.  can’t.  make.  this.  stuff.  up.
  • Tired of winning yet?:  The government reports that border crossings in March were down more than 72% compared to the last month of the Obama Administration.  As noted here before, this is without a wall, without any new laws, without a bigger budget for ICE or the Border Patrol, without any new technology.  This is simply the result of the voters electing a President who chooses to enforce the laws already on the books.
  • Trump was right.  Again.:  The WaPo reported last night that the FBI was indeed spying on the Trump Campaign.  The Post no doubt reluctantly reported that the FBI did obtain a FISA Warrant so it could spy on Carter Page, who was a foreign policy advisor to the Trump Campaign.  The fake reporters at the Post naturally portray this as evidence of Trump collusion with Russia, but what it really is is additional proof that Trump’s Tweet about having been surveilled by the Obama Administration was correct.  It’s obvious that if the FBI had obtained any evidence that Page had somehow engaged in improper communications with the Russians, we would damn sure know it by now through illegal leaks from Obama holdovers in that agency.
  • That giant whooshing sound you heard around 10:00 last night was the deflating of the fake news media balloons.  The fake reporters in the fake media had issued breathless reports over the last two weeks that the Democrats were going to win the special election to fill the 4th Kansas congressional district seat that came open when Mike Pompeo was named CIA Director.  All the fake reporters and fake talking heads were on pins and needles last night, praying that this “safe” Republican seat would fall to their beloved Democrats.  And, just as last November 8, the early results were encouraging, as their Democrat hero led by a few percentage points in the early returns.  But the worm began to turn around 9:00, and by 10:00, the fake journalists at the Associated (fake) Press was forced to call the election for the Republican.  A few minutes later, hundreds of fake pre-written stories about how this Democrat victory means that President Trump has no mandate to govern the country rained into trash cans in fake press rooms in Washington and New York.  So sad.
  • Here at United, The Beatings Will Continue Until Morale Improves.:  United CEO David Munoz issued three different statements yesterday in the wake of the widely-viewed video of O’Hare Airport cops forcibly dragging a bloodied passenger from one of the airline’s flights.   His first statement claimed his employees did everything right; his second claimed that the flight had not been over-sold as had been widely reported.  It was only in his third statement of the day, as his airline’s stock had plummeted in trading, that he actually managed to apologize for the incident and pledge that his airline would do better in the future.  I don’t know who is in charge of United’s communications operation, but I do know I personally could do a much better job, and probably work a lot cheaper.  Just sayin’.
  • Meanwhile, White House spokesman Sean Spicer seemed to be being advised by the same people advising Mr. Munoz, first stupidly saying in his daily press briefing that “even Hitler” did not resort to using chemical weapons (he obviously did), and then, even more stupidly going on CNN later in the day to issue an apology.  At some point, this Administration has got to stop pretending that CNN is a legitimate news organization, and instead treat it as the partisan Democrat operation it actually is.  The apology was the right thing to do, but do it with a real journalist, like Chris Wallace or Sharryl Atkisson.  Stop the pretense that CNN matters.

Just another day in bad communications America.

That is all.
