That Day AOC Came to Texas to Create Chaos, and Succeeded

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

Alexandria Ocasio Cortez went to Clint, Texas yesterday to create chaos.:  She wasn’t there to “tour” a detention facility for illegal aliens who violate U.S. law by entering the country and make false claims of “asylum,” she was there to create chaos, create a story that would get her media attention and create outrage among her social justice warrior support base. And that’s what she did.

To fully grasp what AOC did and why, you have to go back to the fact that she is a performance artist, not a policy maker. She is an actress under the control of a radical leftist group called the Justice Democrats, led by a Saul Alinsky disciple named Cenk Uygur. Uygur and his pack of depraved anti-American radicals supply AOC with her daily scripts, and yesterday’s script needed to take place in Clint. Thus, it did.

Of course, the compliant DNC fake news media gave her exactly what she wanted – wall to wall coverage on CNN and MSNBC, outrage from all the SJWs posting at Twitter, Facebook and other leftwing mouthpiece social media sites, headlines like the one at this link all over the Internet, and dominance of the landing page at the Drudge Report. What more could a fake congresswoman ask for?

While she is the loud red mouth that gets most of the fake news media attention, the reality is that AOC is just a small spoke in a big wheel. That wheel is rolling inexorably towards the Democrat goal of destroying the most basic foundation of any free nation, which is a controllable border. The wheel’s journey begins in Central America, where Soros-funded radicals have been recruiting and paying paying people to either make the long, dangerous journey up through Mexico themselves or, even worse, to send their children along with an adult human trafficker who then lies to U.S. border officials that this is his own child. The latter scenario is becoming more and more the norm as time goes on.

We have seen wave after wave of these caravans since the first big one of them made news last Fall, the stream becoming so constant that they in fact pretty much stopped even being “news” early this year. Which of course is the goal – the Democrats want this situation to come to be considered “normal” in the public’s mind.

The other goal is even worse: To overwhelm our Customs and Border Patrol personnel and the facilities they manage.  The insane state of our immigration laws requires these officials to separate “families” (most of whom are not actually families at all) as a part the asylum process. The goal there is to overwhelm the facilities there to house all these people to create bad conditions that can then be exploited by sleazy politicians like AOC and the other 13 Democrats who participated in yesterday’s charade.

The strategy here is pure Saul Alinsky Rules for Radicals: Create a crisis – check. Exploit the crisis – AOC reportedly began screaming at and refusing to comply with CBP officials’ requests as soon as she entered the facility and the refused to fully participate in the tour of it – check. Personalize it by identifying the “enemy” and publicly demonizing them – AOC was all over Twitter last night making all sorts of outrageous claims against CBP – check.

And then finally, create enough outrage among the public that you are able to effect the “change” you desire, which for the Democrats is to fully open our southern border and turn our nation into just another third-world country. Because third-world populations, as we have seen thousands of times over the centuries, are far more-easily dominated by leftist despots.

That’s who AOC is, that is what she does, and you won’t see her despicable actions being condemned by a single Democrat today because they all share her goal. Don’t kid yourself and others by pretending she is some sort of outlier in the Democrat Party, because this is what the Democrat Party has become: Our nation’s lone true existential threat.

AOC is today’s Democrat Party’s real face, the heavily-painted face of repugnant evil in our time.

That is all.

Democrat Presidential Candidates are Killing Their Party With Honesty

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

Of course, Kamala Harris lied: She’s a Democrat. – Several readers responded to yesterday’s Campaign Update by informing me about media reports indicating Kamala Harris lied during Thursday’s debate when she claimed her elementary school class was the first to be integrated when she went into first grade in 1970.

Jim Hoft at Gatewaypundit.com dug up 1963 yearbook photos from the high school Harris attended in Berkeley, CA (because of course she grew up in Berkeley – where else?). That yearbook shows a fully-integrated class of students. Harris, as a reminder, was born in 1964.

So, she lied. She’s a Democrat, after all, and Democrats lie to get elected. It’s what they do. It’s what they have to do in order to win elections. That is as it has always been, and it is as it always will be. The moment Democrats start telling voters the truth about what they really plan to do, and the impact their plans would really have on our society is the moment their party becomes completely non-viable as a national entity.

In fact, it doesn’t even take Democrats being honest about their policies to see this phenomenon happen – all it takes is for them to begin implementing their real agenda so that the people begin to see with their own eyes what it really is. That happened when Barack Hussein Obama his own self got elected in 2009 and immediately nationalized the nation’s healthcare industry and tried to saddle the country with an economy-destroying cap-and-trade system on carbon.

Even though Democrats continued to shamelessly lie about all of that (“If you want your plan, you can keep your plan”), the blowback against the party was immediate and harsh. Voters who suddenly realized the horrible mistake they’d made in the 2008 elections went out and turned the House of Representatives over to the Republicans in the 2010 mid-terms. The gridlock that created in the legislative process, combined with the GOP nominating the feckless Mitt Romney enabled Obama to recover enough to be re-elected in 2012. But, after Obama switched tactics from legislating to trying to kill the economy by regulating it to death, we had the sea-change 2014 election in which Republicans swept to big majorities in both houses of congress, 33 of the 50 governor’s offices and full control of both houses in over 30 state legislatures.

In six short years, voters seeing the reality of the Obama agenda had relegated the Democrat Party to a marginalized, regional party concentrated in the coastal Northeast, and the West coast. The rest of the national map was a virtual sea of red, interrupted only by small blue pockets concentrated in inner cities.

Remember, Obama had to lie his butt off in order to get elected in 2008. Most people forget this, but he actually ran as a “moderate” against the disastrous John McCain, making no promises to nationalize healthcare or implement a disastrous cap and trade program. The real nature of his far-left agenda only became apparent after he was safely in the Oval Office.

This brings us to the danger in which this current crop of mediocre presidential candidates are placing their party: They are being far, far too honest with the American people about what their agenda really is. This, ironically, is due mostly to the influence that Bernie The Commie Sanders and the childish, attention-grabbing antics of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez have had on the party.

These candidates see all the media spotlight focused on AOC and all the nitwits who follow them on social media squealing for all sorts of radical, outright Marxist and anti-American policy positions, and they become desperate to fall in line like the good little socialists they really are at heart. You must also keep in mind that the vast majority of professional campaign advisors are young people (because as people mature, we tend to want to go do something actually productive with our lives), which today means Millennials. So, regardless of the age of the politician, the advice they are getting tends to skew them to the radical left.

As a result, we saw the spectacle of the two debates this week. Where Democrats in 2009/2010 said “If you like your plan, you can keep your plan,” this week they all said “If you like your plan, we will take it away from you and make you pay the healthcare costs of millions of new illegal aliens.”

And hey, those aliens won’t even be illegal anymore, because each and every one of the 20 people on stage this week also endorsed the nation-destroying idea of decriminalizing border crossings, i.e., open borders. Even more, they’re going to eliminate ICE and de-fund the Border Patrol so that everyone on earth can just swim across the Rio Grande to get their free healthcare.

Oh, and they’re going to raise all of your taxes to pay for multi-trillion dollar schemes like forgiving student loans, the Green New Deal and various other “Climate Change” socialist “plans”, Medicare for all, and on and on and on. The Commie came right out and went full Walter Mondale Thursday night, admitting that he plans to raise taxes on the middle class to pay for all of his Marxist programs. Heads nodded in agreement all over the stage. It’s never a good idea to go full Walter Mondale, people.

These Democrats are so desperate to appeal to their demented, radicalized base voters in order to win the nomination that they are forgetting the single biggest key to ultimately getting elected: Deceiving everyone else about their real intentions.

That particular Genie jumped right up out the bottle this week on national television for all to see. You can bet the Trump campaign is already rolling the video into general election ads as you read this.

For most people, the truth shall set you free. But for Democrats, the light of truth is a death ray.

That is all.

The Democrat/Media “Concentration Camp” Narrative Kicks Off Right On Cue

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

I hate to say I told you so, but, well, I told you so. – Way back in December of 2016, I warned readers about some of the coming narratives Democrats and the fake news media would push in their unending efforts to damage then-President-elect Donald Trump. One of those narratives I warned everyone to look out for was the narrative that the same border detention centers run for 8 years by Barack Hussein Obama his own self without a second’s notice from our fake news media would suddenly come to be characterized as “concentration camps” and “death camps” by the same fake news media and its Democrat masters.

Well, it took more than two years and the failed outcome of the Mueller Witch Hunt for them to get there, but this turns out to be the week that this narrative came to life. The kickoff event came Sunday evening when the new face of the Democrat Party, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, had a few glasses of cheap wine and decided to post this video on her Facebook page:

So, there you go: As predictable as the sun rising in the east, the latest Democrat/media narrative has been born.

Of course, the thing to remember about AOC is that she is most likely completely ignorant of the fact that Obama ran exactly the same detention center program that the Trump Administration is managing. I mean, she’s abjectly ignorant about everything else, so it’s a safe bet, right?

It’s also important to remember that the nitwit from the Bronx is also nothing but a performance artist, a puppet whose scripts are written and strings are pulled by a group called the “Justice Democrats,” which is led by a completely depraved radical named Cenk Uygur. The Campaign Update covered all of this back in March, but if you didn’t watch the video below then, take 20 minutes to look at it now – it’s a terrific expose’ about her and Uygur’s real relationship:

Now, San Fran Nan and the rest of the evil leadership of the DNC may or may not have wanted to roll this particular false narrative out at this time. But AOC has proven to be virtually impossible to control for any extended period of time, and now that she has rolled the narrative out there, the Party is basically stuck with it, whether it wanted to be or not.

As a result, we will now be seeing this kind of babbling idiot talking head become a constant fixture on CNN and MSNBC, as the fake media toadies do their duty of supporting the Democrat narrative:

It’s disgusting, it’s despicable and it is a depraved assault on the integrity of our law enforcement officials and military personnel who are doing their best to cope with a flood of Central American illegals whose “caravans” are also a form of performance art, organized by Soros-funded groups who have the same anti-American ideology held by Uygur and the Justice Democrats.

But this is your Democrat Party and its media toadies in action, folks. You continue to vote for them at your own peril.

P.S.: One other inevitable narrative I warned about in that December 2016 piece was that the Democrat/media propaganda axis would suddenly rediscover the problem of the “homeless” in our country after 8 years of pretending it didn’t exist while Obama was in office. They haven’t gotten around to blaming Trump for the teeming masses of such folks who now occupy the streets of Democrat-run cities like Los Angeles and San Francisco, but you can bet that one’s coming, too, at some point.

My guess is that the Party leaders want to hold that one in reserve for next year, when the presidential campaign is fully underway. But with the likes of AOC and Ilhan Omar going off the reservation so frequently, they may not be able to control the timing of it, either.

But again, that narrative is also inevitable – it’s like page 33 of the Democrat/Media playbook.

That is all.

Trump Thinks it’s Time to Let the [Limited] Deportations Begin

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

Well, this is interesting. – Stuff is about to get real on the border, folks. Last night, President Donald Trump sent out these tweets, sending the fake news media into yet another round of hysteria:

So, what does that mean, exactly? The AP says this, from an anonymous source, of course: “An administration official said the effort would focus on the more than 1 million people who have been issued final deportation orders by federal judges but remain at large in the country. The official spoke on condition of anonymity to explain the president’s tweets.”

It will be interesting, to say the least, to see how much support the President has to make this move towards a limited deportation effort. When he first began talking about possible deportations in the summer of 2015, I wrote that the public would never tolerate an effort to deport all of the estimated 11 million illegal immigrants in the U.S. I still believe that, in 2015, he would have had virtually no public support for such an effort.

But today, I suspect we will find that the public is in a completely different mood, or at least a large portion of it is. After watching this organized effort by Democrat/Soros-backed activist groups to overwhelm the country with massive “caravans” of people from Central America and seeing neither party in congress make the slightest effort to do anything about it, you can be sure that the 43-44% of the public who make up Trump’s base today will fully support this limited effort to deport the scofflaws whose cases have already been determined to have no merit under our asylum laws, and you can bet a sizable portion of independents will as well.

The media will of course put out a series of quick fake polls showing the opposite, because this is what our fake news media does. They are all-in with the Democrats and establishment Republican on turning the U.S. into just another third-world country in the name of some fool’s notion of “fairness,” and will continue to execute from their well-established playbook.

In the meantime, much has been happening begin to slow the flow of illegal immigrants up through Mexico since the President’s threat to implement tariffs:

  • AMLO, Mexico’s President, actually sold his private jet to help fund efforts to halt the caravans at Mexico’s southern border;
  • Mexico’s parliament is considering funding a border wall of its own;
  • Mexico has arrested multiple activists known to be organizers of the caravans;
  • Just yesterday, Mexico announced it had intercepted four tractor-trailer trucks packed with an estimated 800 illegals from Central America;
  • The State Department announced that it will withhold more than $550 million in foreign aid to El Salvador, Honduras and Guatemala until those governments are able to show they are also making strong efforts to halt the flow of these politically-organized caravans. This is the motivation behind Guatemala’s sudden willingness to sign a “safe-third nation” agreement, which will require illegals coming into their country to apply for asylum there rather than moving up into Mexico and the U.S.

Hey, it turns out that, despite the fake media narrative to the contrary, threats of tariffs and withholding of aid do work after all. Go figure.

The other interesting aspect of all of this is that the President chose to make this announcement the night before his campaign kickoff rally in Orlando, Florida. Take a look a this clip to understand the excitement that has built around that announcement:

Trump rallies have become our nation’s latest tailgate party opportunity, where thousands of folks were already getting in line outside the 25,000-seat arena 40 hours before the event. The Trump Campaign reports it has had more than 75,000 requests for tickets to the event. By comparison, the more than 130 “Impeach Trump” rallies held over the weekend were virtually empty, such an utter bomb that the fake news media had to find something else to focus on.

Democrats who claim that this kind of massive demonstration of support has no meaning in the race are doing exactly what Republicans were doing back in 2008, when they made the same claims about the big turnouts at Obama rallies: Whistling past their political graveyards. Enthusiasm is everything in presidential politics.

The Democrats and their media toadies brainwashed the public into electing an Alinskyite activist to the presidency in 2008. Today, the Democrat Party is presenting us with an array of Alinskyite activists trying to repeat that feat.

Trump’s growing base of support has woke to that particular scam.

That is all.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Appearing on Fox News Sunday, Mulvaney said:

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

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

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

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

The time to act is now.

That is all.

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.
