The Democrat/Media’s ‘Blue Wave’ Crashes on the Shoals of Texas Reality

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

But…but…but…BLUE WAVE!!!!…or…or something… – Just as Beto Mania and We’re Turnin’ Texas Purple Fever began to really kick into high gear, that inconvenient thing called “harsh reality” jumped up and slapped Democrats and their fake news media press agents in their collective ugly face in Texas on Tuesday.

The first event early in the day came in the form of a new poll from Quinnipiac, showing Governor Greg Abbott holding a 19-point lead over his poor, un-funded, out-of-her-depth Democrat opponent, Lupe Valdez, and coming up with a 9-point lead for Ted Cruz over Irish Bob O’Rourke, who likes to call himself “Beto” in order to try to attract Hispanic voters.  While this poll is probably no more useful than any of those that came before, it did at least survey “likely” Texas voters, and provides one data point indicating the race is moving into a more normal paradigm as Election Day approaches and Cruz. after basically ceding the playing field to his opponent during the first 9 months of the year, actually begins to campaign in earnest.

For those of you still thinking “But Beto’s soooooo cute!  Beto cusses a lot so Millenials will rush to the polls to vote for him!  Beto’s just like a Kennedy!  Beto can stillllllll wiiiiiinnnnnnnn!!!!”, think about this:  While some polls taken in this race this year have indicated that it might be close, not a single one of them has resulted in a lead for Irish Bob.  Not one.  Even an August poll that absurdly used a sample containing an even percentage of Republican and Democrat voters showed Cruz with a narrow lead.

If this race were really all that close – like the Senate races in Missouri or Florida, for example – you would have polls alternately showing Cruz and Irish Bob with leads.  That hasn’t happened because this race really isn’t close.  It’s a 10-12 point election in favor of Ted Cruz – always has been, and will be in the end.

The second event that threw Texas Democrats into fits of despair was the runoff election in Texas Senate District 19, in which long-time Democrat state legislator Pete Gallego squared off against Republican Pete Flores in the race to replace former Democrat Sen. Carlos Uresti, who was sentenced to prison in a fraud case earlier in the year.  Given that the race was in a heavily-Democrat district, a district that The Pantsuit Princess won by 12 points in 2016, and featured a seasoned veteran as the Democrat candidate, Texas Democrats assumed they’d be able to hold the seat.

Uh, no.  The voters in District 19 decided they’d had enough Democrat representation for awhile, and Flores walked off with a surprisingly easy 6-point victory.  For Texans, it is important to note that the pickup of this seat most likely means that the GOP will control a true super-majority in the Texas state senate when the legislature convenes in January for the first time in, well, forever.  Texas isn’t turning “purple” in 2018 – it’s most likely going to end up turning even more “red.”

God Bless Texas.

The Kavanaugh accuser is clearly lying, and it shows. – How do we now know for certain sure that Christina Ford is lying about her accusations against Brett Kavanaugh?  Let us count the ways:

  • She’s now refusing to show up on Monday to tell her tale of a 36-year-ago sexual assault that really wasn’t a sexual assault at all to the Senate Judiciary Committee;
  • She’s absurdly demanding the FBI conduct an investigation into a 36-year-ago event for which, even if it is a thing, the statute of limitations ran out at least 29 years ago, and for which literally the only “evidence” is her claim.  Any FBI agent can perform all the “investigation” necessary by simply reading the Washington Post;
  • She makes this ludicrous demand safe in the knowledge that a) the FBI doesn’t have jurisdiction in the case in any event, and b) the FBI has already announced it won’t be investigating anything because, hey, IT DOESN’T HAVE JURISDICTION IN THIS CASE;
  • Sen. Dianne Feinstein, the despicable, corrupt creep who initially served as Ford’s sponsor in this transparent attempt to delay or derail the nomination, started crawfishing late yesterday, telling reporters that she “can’t be sure everything is true.  I just don’t know.”  This is creepy politician-speak for “She’s lying; I know she’s lying, so I’m going to start slowly backing away from her and pretending I really had nothing to do with any of this in order to cover my own butt.”

Naturally, Ford’s lawyer rolled out the obligatory “she’s been getting death threats” claim as her client’s story was falling apart yesterday in a desperate effort to curry favor with the news media and the public.  This is something like Page 72, paragraph 3 of the Democrat/fake news media Saul Alinsky Memorial Playbook, and was so predictable you just have to look on in wonder at the fact that some people are still stupid enough to buy it.

Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley and Majority Leader Mitch McConnell finally started to grow some huevos late in the day as their indignation at this spectacle grew, with both men holding firm to next Monday as Ford’s one and only shot at coming forward to make her transparently false claims under oath and possible penalty of perjury.  But it’s a long way until Monday, and the Democrats and fake news media will continue to pound for further delay day after day until then.  We’ll just have to wait and see if these gents can hold firm in the face of all of that, and there is literally no reason at all to believe they will, based on past performance and the fact that they continue to take their communications advice from the very same firms that advise all these creepy, corrupt Democrats.

What will most likely happen will be for Ms. Ford to go onto several of the Sunday morning talk shows – avoiding Fox News Sunday like the plague, of course – where she can be sure she will only be asked easy, softball questions by reliable Democrat toadies like George Stephanopoulos, Chuck Todd and Jake Tapper.  Most importantly, she won’t have to answer questions under oath or thus face potential perjury charges. ABC, CNN and NBC will no doubt the thrilled to serve as her vehicles in this endeavor because, hey, this is what they do for leftwing activists like Ms. Ford.

The most intelligent course for McConnell and Grassley will be to just realize nothing they do will appease the fake news media, which will pummel them regardless.  So they might as well just hold firm to Monday’s date, give Ford until noon Friday to accept the offer, and cancel the hearing if she refuses to accept.  That’s a more than fair process, and will pretty clearly demonstrate to any fair-minded individual that Ford should be disregarded if she isn’t willing to participate in it.

After that, hold the damn vote and get the man confirmed.  Stop letting the senate minority and our fake national news media hold this country hostage.

That is all.

If You Get Your News From Twitter, Tuesday was, like, Totally Awesome

The Evening Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Some Twitter highlights from today:

Wait, you mean, like, newspapers that print inflammatory, blatantly false op/eds defaming the President of the United States without identifying the writer? Hey, I know one…

So, what do you do if you’re one of the fake news media outlets that has been promoting the notion that Irish Beto O’Rourke is going to beat Ted Cruz in the Texas Senate race, and you see a new Quinnipiac poll that has Cruz expanding his lead in the race to 9 points?  If you’re the newsfakers at @The Hill, you hilariously bury the lead as far and deeply as you can possibly bury it:

…and if that doesn’t get you far enough into fakery, you issue another tweet with another hilariously-biased headline that names the Democrat, but identifies the Republican with the four-letter last name only as “Texas GOP senator…”.  Holy cow, that is some serious #fakenews right there.

Meanwhile, Stephen Miller lightens the mood with a hilarious offering of his own, lampooning the shameful efforts by Democrats to falsely portray the FBI’s jurisdiction in the Kavanaugh matter…

Houston radio talk show host nails Democrats and their voting habits here:

Meanwhile, back in #fakenews world, NBC refuses to be outdone by The Hill or anyone else.  Note the use of the term “blindsided”.  Yes, because President Trump has only been transparently previewing his declassification action for about four months now:

 

Watching this guy change positions is like watching a child with a damn yo-yo. Blast Jeff Flake all you want, but at least he is consistently venal and cowardly.

Back in #fakenews world, MSNBC’s Kyle Griffin delivers a real “scoop” – that shameful valor thief Richard Blumenthal opposes the Kavanaugh nomination.  You’re a real scoop-meister, there, Kyle.

And finally, from our Good God Who Cares department, the Daily Caller delivers this little gem:

*sigh*

Just another day in getting the news as only Twitter can deliver it America.

As Senate Repubs Commit Hari-Kari, Trump Drops a Huge Bomb of Transparency

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Ok, so when do we get that study de-linking smoking and lung cancer? – A new study from a bunch of doctors somewhere claims to have proven that there is no link – none at all – between high levels of what your doctor has been calling “bad cholesterol” for the last 40 years or so and heart disease.

That’s right, boys and girls, if you have spent years putting nasty slimy skim milk on your cereal, consuming “cheese” made from soybeans, replacing your beef ribeyes with bland, tough Bison sirloins and pretending to actually like getting your protein from nasty stuff like Tofu and Quinoa, well, you did not need to be doing all of that, at least according to these folks.  Guess I didn’t need to be taking that big Lipitor pill every night for the last six years, either.  Go figure.

Fair warning before you go out and clean your local Kroger out of ribeyes:  We’ll no doubt be getting another study from a different group of doctors showing the exact opposite conclusion within months.  So you might want to limit your lifestyle change to just getting a gallon of whole milk and overdosing on that.

This is the Senate Republicans, committing Hari Kari before your very eyes. – After panicking throughout Sunday and most of the day Monday, Senate Republicans made the very worst decision possible related to the obviously false accusations being levied against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh by leftwing activist Christine Ford.  Not only did the gutless wonders give the Democrats the delay in the Committee process they wanted, they also scheduled a replay of the Clarence Thomas/Anita Hill fiasco for next Monday.

So, assuming the shameless accuser accepts the invite – which she has not done at this point –  Republicans will literally get the worst of all possible worlds out of this:  A delayed nomination, an irreparably tarnished nominee thanks to the heinously biased coverage by our fake news media, and a two-day spectacle in which a bunch of old white guys will be questioning this woman on national television.

Seriously, it’s like Mitch McConnell and Chuck Grassley huddled up and went about figuring out how they could turn this into the perfect recipe for losing control of the Senate in November, and decided to go with that.  Hell, maybe that’s what they deserve.

Meanwhile, over at the White House… – Hey, y’all, President Donald Trump finally, at long last ordered the declassification of a bunch of documents that DOJ has been withholding from various congressional committees for over a year yesterday!  That’s the good news.  The bad news is that the declassification process will be carried out by the still-corrupt Justice Department (DOJ) and the hopefully-less-corrupt Office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI).  So who knows how long this will all take.

If carried out honestly, it should happen quickly, because the President’s order is very specific and demands the documents be released in un-redacted form.  Those documents include:

  • 21 pages from the 412 pages of documents related to the FISA warrant application that allowed the FBI/DOJ cabal to spy on Carter Page and the Trump Campaign;
  • all FBI reports on interviews with Justice Department official Bruce Ohr;
  • all FBI reports of interviews prepared in connection with all other applications to surveil Carter Page;
  • all text messages, “without redaction”, from Ohr, Peter Strzok, Lisa Page, former FBI Director and current Teenage Drama Queen James Comey and former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe.

That’s a good start, a start that should have happened a month ago at the latest, and it will no doubt shed much more light on the disgraceful corruption that was taking place within the Obama DOJ and FBI throughout the 2016 election campaign.  But the list is incomplete, and will still leave some aspects of the massive corruption held secret within the lateral files of the slimy Rod Rosenstein.

Here are a couple of long-stonewalled documents that are not included in the President’s initial declass list:

  • The memo written by Mr. Rosenstein authorizing the creation of the Special Counsel’s office under Robert Mueller;
  • The subsequent Rosenstein memo that expanded the investigatory scope of the Mueller investigation;
  • The FBI 302 files containing the notes of Peter Strzok and other FBI agents present for the January 2017 entrapment interview with General Mike Flynn, including the originals and all subsequent modified versions of it.

The authorizing memos by Rosenstein are crucial because if they were done legally they would a) clearly lay out a scope for Mueller’s investigation, and b) specifically point to some actual crime for him to investigate.  Given that there is no such crime as “collusion” mentioned anywhere in the federal statutes, legal scholars like Alan Dershowitz and Jonathan Turley have raised questions about the investigation’s legality from the very beginning.  Multiple congressional committees have been attempting to obtain these memos for more than a year now.

The 302 files are also crucial because many researchers believe that Strzok and his fellow corrupt FBI agents altered their original notes from the Flynn meeting in order to entrap him into the “lying to the FBI” charge to which he plead guilty.  Many believe that this fact is why Mueller has repeatedly asked the judge in the case to delay sentencing of Flynn over the past 10 months, with the most recent delay being requested and agreed-to just yesterday.

The sentencing has now been delayed to November 28, after the mid-term elections, and right at a full year since Flynn entered his plea.  Perhaps the President just wants to keep these key documents in his hip pocket in the hope that his initial order will spur Rosenstein and FBI Director Christopher Wray to go ahead and come clean.  If so, he’s likely to be disappointed.

At any rate, the most hilarious part of the President’s order on Monday was to go out to Twitter and marvel at every liberal fake reporter in the country wailing in protest about all this sudden transparency that was going on.  It is moments like these in which this community of shameless hacks jointly reveal their despicable true nature.

It was all too much for real, actual journalists like Mollie Hemingway to stomach:

But hey, once you accept the fact that all the fake journalists are just Democrat activists with press passes, everything they do begins to make perfect sense.

Just another day in trasparency-hating fake news media America.

Rejoice, Democrats: Your Next High-Tech Lynching Has Arrived!

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Democrats raise the depravity to new heights. – After news of the “anonymous letter” from a woman who knew Brett Kavanaugh in high school, accusing the Supreme Court nominee of unspecified teenage misconduct, came to light last week, here is what The Campaign Update told you we would soon find out:

=================================

Trust me on this, it is only a matter of time before…

– We find out the accuser’s name;

– We discover she is being represented by some scumbag lawyer like Michael Avenetti or Lisa Bloom or best of all, Gloria Allred;

– We find out she got paid a ton of money by some Democrat-affiliated, Soros-funded third party group to write and send the letter; and

– We start seeing leftwing talking heads and Democrat politicians rolling out their next big talking point, which will be that we must – MUST – place the Kavanaugh nomination on hold until these oh-so-credible accusations, which will almost certainly be luridly sexual in nature, can be sorted out.

=================================

That was last Thursday.  On Sunday, we found out most of that information, courtesy of the fakenewsers at the Washington Post.

The accuser’s name?  Christine Blasey Ford, a longtime leftwing activist, professor at extremely liberal Palo Alto University in California, and Bernie Sanders contributor.  Totally credible.

The accuser’s lawyer?  Not the Porn Lawyer, nor the execrable Ms. Bloom nor her even more execrable mother, Gloria Allred.  But just as bad: One Debra Katz, a longtime leftwing Democrat activist who was recently quoted as describing anyone who works for President Trump as “miscreants.”  Katz also was part of Hillary Clinton’s “Bimbo Eruptions” team, a group of women who viciously slandered any of the myriad women who came out of the woodwork to accuse Bill Clinton of sexual misconduct.  Just a lovely person, no doubt.

How much has Ms. Blasey Ford been paid to do this?  We don’t know this bit of key information yet, but you can bet tons of people are working on that particular question as you read this.  The going rate for this sort of thing during the 2016 presidential campaign was about $150,000; for accusers of Roy Moore, the bidding got up over $200,000.  The execrable lawyer Ms. Bloom got caught offering something like $700k to one #MeToo accuser.  Ms. Blasey Ford may or may not have been paid to do this, but the history of this sort of Democrat dirty trick tells us there’s a pretty good chance that some big, big money is behind this.

Very predictably, the calls from Democrat politicians and fake news readers that we must – MUST – place the Kavanaugh nomination on hold until these accusations from this woman – who the Democrat/fake journalist joint talking points insist is a “credible witness” – can be sorted out literally rained down from the heavens throughout Sunday afternoon and evening.

Of course, the truth is that Ms. Blasey Ford is not credible in any way, shape or form.  Even a rookie public defender would rip her story to shreds were she to try to roll this junk out on the witness stand in a court of law.  The mere fact that she has allegedly sat on this “information” for 36 years, as Mr. Kavanaugh rose through the ranks of the federal judiciary, as the FBI has conducted no fewer than 6 thorough investigations into his background, even as he went through a highly-publicized confirmation before this same Senate Judiciary Committee when he was nominated to serve on a federal appellate court – that she sat on her hands through all of those years and all of those hearings and investigations alone renders her as a wholly non-credible person.

She claims to have passed a lie detector test administered by a “former FBI agent”.  Oh, really?  Was that agent’s last name Strzok?  Page?  Comey?  McCabe?  The possibilities are almost endless here.

Meanwhile, despite Ms. Blasey Ford’s laser-clear memory of this “incident,” she cannot remember where this party was held, who owned the home in question, how she got to the party, or who she arrived there with.  Oh, but she does remember that Kavanaugh allegedly had a partner in this “incident,” and even the guy’s name – some poor schlub named Mark Judge, who, like Mr. Kavanaugh, categorically denies the story, calling it “just absolutely nuts.”

Yes, it is absolutely nuts, but this is today’s depraved Democrat Party we’re talking about here, and the fake news media which serves as its propaganda wing.

Sadly, it’s also nervous Republicans like Lindsey Graham and shameless swamp skunks like Jeff Flake, both of whom are now getting all wobbly in the knees and calling for Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley to bring Ms. Blasey Ford before the Committee for a hearing before the scheduled committee vote this Thursday.  The accuser says she’s willing to do that, no doubt in the hopes of becoming the new darling of the news media, a modern-day Anita Hill.  What a goal to have in life.

Given that every Democrat on that Committee knew about Ms. Blasey Ford’s allegations when the full week of hearings on this nomination took place, and conspired to keep it in their hip pockets, Chairman Grassley should refuse to cowtow to his weak-kneed colleagues and simply follow through with his scheduled vote.  But he won’t do that, because congressional Republicans have no, well, um, let’s call them “huevos”.  (Look it up if you don’t understand rudimentary Spanish.)

So we’re going to have another gigantic, disgusting spectacle this week, probably two full days of salacious, slanderous hearings that will only serve to divide the nation even further than it already is, brought to you courtesy of depraved Democrats and gutless Republicans.

A pox on all their houses.  Every one of them.

That is all.

[Addendum:  Don’t just assume that Ms. Blasey Ford is the only accuser the Democrats are holding in their hip pockets on this nomination.  The Roy Moore episode makes it clear that they may well have a number of longtime leftist activist Bernie Sanders donors willing to come forward and slander Mr. Kavanaugh’s reputation.  Say tuned, if you can bear it.]

Today’s Campaign Update – The Week in Review

Today’s Campaign Update – The Week in Review

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

This week, we introduce a new feature at the Campaign Update – The Week in Review.

Ok, actually we introduced this last Friday evening, but failed to take the time and space to point it out.  We’re going to plan to post one of these every Saturday afternoon at least through the end of this year’s mid-term election campaign, at which point the plan is to assess their utility (and readership level) and decide whether they should be continued.

In putting these Campaign Updates together every morning, it often becomes impossible to adequately capture all the big things that are taking place related to our national politics.  Every day has multiple news cycles, as the leftwingers in our fake news media and the Democrat Party become increasingly panicked about their prayed-for “Blue Wave” failing to materialize and the growing reality that Robert Mueller is systematically taking the steps necessary to wind down his fruitless “investigation.”

We can only expect the pace of fakenewsery to speed up even more during the 8 weeks remaining until Election Day, meaning that, in order to keep everyone updated on the campaign, the Campaign Update must work a little overtime.

The plan here is to summarize the week’s major events in bullet point format, heaping as many insults and pithy comments upon all the snowflakes, SJWs, fake newsers and other creatures on the political left as we can think to include.  Links to relevant stories will, as always, be included where relevant and useful.

So here we go with the Campaign Update Week in Review, Episode 2.

This was the week that all the following happened:

  • Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey, a shameless SJW himself, admitted that his “conservative employees “don’t feel safe to express their opinions” while in the Twitter corporate workplace.  Man, what do you think tipped him off?
  • Meanwhile, over at Google, tapes of a leadership team meeting that took place shortly after the 2016 election revealed that, contrary to their pious claims of impartiality, the social media behemoth does indeed do everything it can to distort its search results in favor of liberals.  Very predictably, none of the TV networks, nor CNN or the NYTimes or Washington Post devoted any time or space to covering this major story.  Go figure.
  • The Washington Post told us that President Donald Trump is “complicit” in the creation of Hurricane Florence because he doesn’t spout the dogma of the religion of Climate Change, but oddly gave him no credit at all for the hurricane’s being downgraded from a Cat 4 storm to a Cat 1 as it approached the Eastern Seaboard.  Odd.
  • The fake news media’s coverage of the leadup to and destruction caused by Florence was every bit as fake as one would have expected, as the fake journalists did everything they could think of to use the storm to try to damage President Trump and any other random Republican who got in the way.  So tiresome.
  • We learned that RINO Senator Ben Sasse “thinks about leaving the Republican Party” every morning.  So go already.
  • President Trump’s star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame was restored over last weekend, and has, as of this writing, remained unmolested by enraged social justice warriors a full week later.  Amazing.
  • Speaking of stories the mainstream fake news media couldn’t be bothered to spend a second reporting, a Republican candidate for congress out in California was stabbed by a lunatic supporter of his Democrat rival, incumbent congressman Eric Swalwell, who I remain convinced played Otter in the 1978 film “Animal House.”  When Swalwell was interviewed on CNN the very next day, he was not asked a single question about the stabbing by the fake news hack doing the interview.  *sigh*
  • Les Moonves got his sorry butt “MeToo’d” out of his job as CEO of CBS.  The management at CBS was so angry at all the bad PR Moonves brought the organization that they sent him packing with a severance deal totaling only about $100 million.  Not kidding.
  • San Fran Nan said she agrees that, where the Democrats are concerned, “it’s time for new blood and we should move on.”  That’s the good part.  But in her next breath, she promised to continuing clinging to power so long as Donald Trump is President: “to have no woman at the table and to have the Affordable Care Act at risk, I said, ‘As long as he’s here, I’m here.”  Oh, goody.
  • Paul Manafort “flipped” in order to get a plea deal from Bob Mueller, but it’s an open question whether his flipping is any sort of bad news for President Trump or just for Tony Podesta, with whom Manafort partnered to lobby for some Ukrainian clients during the Obama Administration.  Given that all the charges that Mueller had brought against Manafort were from that long ago period of time, the latter seems most likely.
  • Political fabulist Bob Woodward’s new book trashing President Trump immediately topped all the best-seller lists, but it turned out that possibly the most damaging allegation in it relates not to the President, but to Obama’s CIA Director, the execrable John Brennan.  Oh, my.
  • Corrupt New York Mayor Andrew Cuomo sent the eternally irritating Marxist Cynthia Nixon packing, and nobody really cared.
  • The New York Times tried to smear Nikki Haley and it backfired immensely, proving that sometimes justice still does prevail in this country.
  • Late in the week, despicable California Senator Dianne Feinstein pulled a last minute stunt to try to derail the Supreme Court nomination of Brett Kavanaugh, but when even the fakenewsers at the Washington Post were ridiculing the highly-predictable tactic, it quickly became obvious that it won’t work.

With the final Senate floor vote not scheduled to take place until September 29, though, no one should blithely assume that Feinstein and her fellow depraved Democrats are finished trying to slander the nominee.  They probably have several more arrows in that Luciferian quiver they drag around with them.

Stay tuned.

That is all.

Mark Meadows Drops a Bomb on Fox News that the Rest of the Media Will Desperately Ignore

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

So long, Cynthia, we hardly knew ye.  And we’re really happy about that. – Bad actress Cynthia Nixon turned out to be an even worse far, far, far, far, far, far, far left-wing political candidate, as she got her whiny head handed to her in last night’s Democrat primary by ultra-corrupt New York Governor Andrew Cuomo.  Nixon couldn’t even get up to Wendy Davis numbers, pulling just 34.5% of the vote in the race.  What the results showed was not how much the despicable Cuomo is loved by New York voters, but how much Nixon and her Marxist ideology are still hated, even in a very liberal state like New York.

Let’s learn this lesson, because it is really important:  Nixon got slaughtered not because she “couldn’t get her message out,” but precisely because she became the darling of the New York and national fake news media and her senseless, destructive ideology was fully exposed to the voters.  This is in direct contrast to Alexandria Ocasio Cortez, who was able to pull off her surprise win over a longtime Democrat incumbent who barely campaigned, and thus was never exposed to the voters until after the voting had taken place.

The lesson here is clear:  The way to defeat these Marxist “Democratic Socialists” is to fully expose them to the voters.  You can bet this lesson will not be lost on Texas Senator Ted Cruz, who is in a fairly close race against extreme liberal Irish Bob O’Rourke (who calls himself “Beto”), who is being portrayed as just a moderate Democrat by the Texas and National fake news media who have adopted him and his campaign as their pet cause.

We can expect the Cruz campaign to focus and spend heavily on exposing the reality of Irish Bob to the voters.  The fake news media will accuse Cruz of running a “negative” campaign as if that is something bad, but the reality is that when the media won’t do its job of vetting candidates for the voters, the opposing candidate must do it for them.  Assuming Cruz adopts that strategy, what appears to be a close race in September will end up about a 10 point victory in November, because Texas voters aren’t going to want to sent a Cynthia Nixon clone to the U.S. Senate.

Speaking of lessons learned… – As he has watches as the depraved Democrats pander to Cynthia Nixon’s and Irish Bob O’Rourke’s ultra-leftist voters by pulling out literally every trick they can think of to defame, demean and destroy Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, we must hope that the lesson President Trump takes away from all of this is that, when the next Supreme Court opening comes up, there is no reason at all not to nominate a real, hard core conservative jurist like Amy Barrett.  The process will be the same no matter who he puts forth, so no use pussy-footing around next time.

A big bomb went off on Fox News last night… – and you won’t see any “mainstream”, i.e., fake media outlet talking about it.

Rep. Mark Meadows (R-NC) appeared along with Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) on the Sean Hannity show to discuss this latest texting scandal involving disgraced ex-FBI Agent Peter Strzok and his paramour FBI lawyer Lisa Page.  For those unaware, this latest episode involves Strzok and Page discussing the fact that multiple deep state anti-Trump cabal participants within the FBI and DOJ were “leaking like crazy” to various media outlets last year during the run-up to the start of the Robert Mueller Special Counsel investigation.

Jordan had told Fox Business host Stuart Varney earlier in the day that one leftwing reporter was getting leaks from as many as 13 different individuals within the DOJ/FBI cabal, and repeated that fact to Hannity.  Meadows followed with this huge bit of information:

Rep. Mark Meadows: “There are dozens of other documents that will support the fact that Peter Strzok and Lisa Page had ongoing relationships with multiple reporters and that they were feeding them information to spin a narrative against this president… We know that James Comey leaked, we know that Andrew McCabe leaked, we know that Peter Strzok and Lisa Page leaked. We also know that the reporters who they leaked to know that they leaked. And look we got names. We also have the reporters’ names.”

That high-pitched crunching sound you heard around 8:30 CT last night was the sound of sphincters tightening in the offices of the New York Times, the Washington Post, CNN, MSNBC, NBC, ABC and CBS.

Even without the names, it would not be hard to figure out who the reporters are.  The fake news media was literally filled to the gills during this time frame with stories damaging to President Trump sourced solely from “a source close to the White House,” “sources within the FBI,” “multiple sources with knowledge of the investigation,” or however else the Times and Post could think to couch it.

All of which is why you won’t see any of this reported at the Times or the Post or any other fake media outlet.  They’re all praying to whatever god they worship that all of this gets delayed past Election Day, the Democrats win a majority in the House, and the coverup can thus be completed.

As the Campaign Update has told you repeatedly over the last 10 months, the fake news media was not only supportive of the conspiracy within the DOJ/FBI to first deny Trump the 2016 election and then to bring down the Trump Presidency, it has been and remains complicit in these past and ongoing efforts. Rod Rosenstein and his lackeys at DOJ continue to feverishly work to cover it all up and stonewall congressional document requests, but sooner or later it will all come out, and when it does, hell is coming with it.

Just another day in the fake news media is part of the deep state America.

The Bork Playbook Having Failed, Democrats Open up the Thomas Playbook on Kavanaugh

The Evening Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Well, this was pretty much inevitable, wasn’t it?  Last week’s tireless effort by Senate Judiciary Committee Democrats to put a Borking on Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh failed miserably.  Every lie, every deceitfully-edited video, every empty threat, every “I am Spartacus” moment ran up on the shoals of reality and truth.  The nominee’s eloquence and composure through all of that plus an endless array of leftist nutjobs who had been paid to disrupt the proceedings ended up enhancing the public’s opinion of him and damaging the presidential hopes of political circus ringleaders Kamala Harris and Cory Booker.

Democrats are nothing if not repetitive, having attempted to use their “Borking” strategy against every subsequent Republican Supreme Court nominee since 1987.  They are also extremely predictable, and it was pretty much inevitable that, in this era of all #resistance all the time politics, they would follow their failed Borking of Kavanaugh with an effort at the same sort of “high-tech lynching” they attempted to pull on Clarence Thomas when he was nominated by President George H.W. Bush in 1991.

So it is that we see today’s revelation by the fakenewsers at Buzzfeed that despicable California Senator Dianne Feinstein has referred a letter from a constituent who is just oh, so desperate (she isn’t) to remain anonymous (she won’t) to the FBI because it makes nasty allegations (which are false) about Mr. Kavanaugh.  And get this:  Those allegations allegedly took place while the letter writer and Kavanaugh were in freaking HIGH SCHOOL together.

Yes, friends, these depraved Democrats, having spent months scouring the nominee’s adult life and judicial record and coming up with a big bag of nothing, have now resorted to digging up some woman who claims to have gone to high school with Kavanaugh, and who is willing to try to drag his reputation through the mud.  Feinstein, who has been shopping the letter around Capital Hill all week, claims it just showed up in her mail out of the blue, and if you believe that I have some property in the Texas hill country I’ve been trying to off-load for about 3 years that I’d like to talk to you about.

Trust me on this, it is only a matter of time before…

– We find out the accuser’s name;

– We discover she is being represented by some scumbag lawyer like Michael Avenetti or Lisa Bloom or best of all, Gloria Allred;

– We find out she got paid a ton of money by some Democrat-affiliated, Soros-funded third party group to write and send the letter; and

– We start seeing leftwing talking heads and Democrat politicians rolling out their next big talking point, which will be that we must – MUST – place the Kavanaugh nomination on hold until these oh-so-credible accusations, which will almost certainly be luridly sexual in nature, can be sorted out.

As you can see, this last-ditch, incredibly predictable effort to derail the Kavanaugh nomination meets my “5 Ds” test:  It is despicable, disgusting, disgraceful and depraved, and whenever you see any politically-related episode that fits all four of those Ds, you can bet your entire 401(k) plan balance that the fifth D – Democrats – are behind it.

It won’t work, but you just knew they were going to try it.

A Week of Democrat/Media Hysteria Leaves Trump Unscathed

The Evening Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

As we come to the end of this week, a week during which the Democrat/Media Axis of Propaganda pulled out the biggest guns it has and fired them until their chambers were smoking, fake journalists and Democrat politicians must all be looking at one another and saying, “what in the hell did any of that do for us?”

It was a week literally filled with events that D.C. establishment wise men and women solemnly pronounced to be “the beginning of the end for Donald Trump.”  The first such event was the stunningly politicized funeral service last Saturday for John McCain, during which the likes of Joe Biden, George W. Bush and even McCain’s daughter Meghan took potshots at the President of the United States in what were supposed to be eulogies for the deceased Senator.  That was all just six days ago, and yet the 27 separate and distinct news cycles that have taken place since then make it all seem like a faded and distant memory.

The “beginning of the end for Donald Trump” the very next day, Sunday, September 2, was going to be the newest false narrative to explain why the deep state cabal within the Obama DOJ and FBI did all the illegal spying on the Trump campaign throughout 2016.  Invented out of whole cloth by the fakenewsers at the New York Times, this latest in a long line of fairy tale efforts to justify all the law-breaking hilariously blamed the entire thing on a failed effort by the Cabal to “turn” Russian Oligarch Oleg Deripaska.  Deripaska, of course, is the Russian source for most of the absurd fantasies that form the vast majority of the fake “Trump Dossier.”  Literally no one outside of the offices at the Times took this latest work of high fiction seriously, and it has been pretty much entirely forgotten as I type this a mere 5 days later.

That brings us to Monday, which was also Labor Day, when the “beginning of the end for Donald Trump” was the newest book from noted political fabulist Bob Woodward.  No way can Trump survive this one, said everyone at CNN/NBC/CBS/ABC/MSNBC/TheWashingtonPost/NewYorkTimes in unison!  But here we sit, just 3 days after the news of the book’s pending release broke, along with what were supposed to be damaging outtakes from it, and literally no one is talking about it.

Of course, the book’s biggest problem is what the biggest problem always is with any Woodward book:  Its “sources” are all anonymous, despite all of the author’s braggadocio about having a “first-hand source” for every allegation in the tome.  Given that Woodward has been caught making all manner of things up out of whole cloth in his previous works of political fiction, no one has any real obligation – or really and reason – to believe him now.

On Tuesday, the next edition of “the beginning of the end of Donald Trump” was the Senate Judiciary hearings over his nominee to the Supreme Court, Brett Kavanaugh.  Democrats and their media agents began the hearings Tuesday morning with anti-Trump guns a-blazing, carefully-scripted joint talking points and a hearing room filled with paid protesters.  Unsurprisingly, the disgraceful spectacle put on by the gang of Democrat/media thugs had the effect of turning off a huge number of Americans, and by mid-day on Wednesday, even some of the Democrat committee members had grown visibly nervous about it all.

Another dud.

On Wednesday, the fakenewsers at the New York Times were firing their fake news guns one more time, this time with a unprecedented anonymous op/ed from an alleged “senior Administration official” that detailed the existence of an embedded gang of anti-Trump functionaries who are working to undermine President Trump and his priorities.  In other words, the op/ed details the very existence of the Deep State in the pages of the freaking New York Times.  What a bunch of boobs these people are.  Thus, this particular “beginning of the end for Donald Trump” ended almost before it even began.

Yesterday, as detailed in this morning’s Campaign Update, goofy New Jersey Senator Cory “Jazz Hands” Booker decided he was gonna be the one to bring the “beginning of the end for Donald Trump” by staging a hysterical in-committee fight over the release of a set of Kavanaugh memos from 17 years ago that were supposed to prove the Judge is a racist.  But then we all read the memos and it turned out that they simply proved the opposite – that Judge Kavanaugh argued against the implementation of racial profiling in the wake of the 2001 9/11 attacks.  To make matters worse for Senator Jazz Hands, it also turned out that the memos had been approved for the release hours before his staged rant, a fact that he was actually well aware of.

Pop.

So here we sit at the end of this eventful week, and President Trump is not only still standing, he is thriving.  The President’s polling numbers actually rose as the week went along, and the biggest news on Friday was the August jobs numbers, which exceeded the expectations of all the “experts” yet again.

Oh, and Barack Obama made a big speech bashing Trump around noon on Friday, an event signaling his return to actively campaigning for Democrat congressional candidates.  This should make those candidates cower in terror given that their party went from a clear, unchallenged majority national party with super-majorities in both houses of congress when Obama came into office in 2009, to a clear, fading regional minority party holding not a single lever of political power when Obama cleared out of the White House on January 20, 2017.

What this week of Democrat/Media hysteria proved more than anything else is that they still have not figured out why Donald Trump won in 2016, and they still have no clue how to deal with him.

This is Donald Trump, #WINNING for America.

That is all.

The New York Times Proves the Deep State is Alive and Well (Oops)

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

You know it’s bound to happen. – Hey, anyone know when Netflix will have the first 3 seasons of John McCain’s Funeral uploaded for binge watching?  Asking for a friend…

Your fake news media in action! – The New York Times last week:  Ran a piece contending that the Deep State is just an alt-right “conspiracy theory.”

The New York Times this week:  Ran an anonymous op/ed, supposedly written by a “senior administration official,” who says that he is part of a cabal of government employees embedded in the executive branch working to undermine the Trump presidency.

ummmmm…yeah, that’s the definition of the term “Deep State,” guys and gals.

So, let’s do some Q&A related to this:

Q:  Has the NYTimes ever pulled a stunt like this in an effort to undermine any other president?

A:  No.  Well, not in modern times, anyway.  Who knows what they might have done the last time our country went through a round of yellow journalism like the one we’re currently experiencing, back around the turn of the 19th century?

Q: Would the NYTimes have run such a piece from a Deep State official embedded in the Obama Administration?

A: You’re kidding, right?  Seriously, this is a joke?  No?  Look, if anyone doing this to Obama had identified himself to the editorial board of the NYTimes, the Times would have publicly outed him immediately and referred his case to the U.S. Attorneys at the Southern District of New York.

Q: How “Senior” is this official?

A: Good question.  There are more than 5,000 political appointees in the executive branch of government, and many times more than that SES (Senior Executive Service) level career bureaucrats at the GS-13 level or above.  Given how loosey-goosey the fakenewsers at the Times play with words these days (I laughed out loud when someone on Twitter tried to claim they followed “rules” on such things last night), it could be any one of these tens of thousands of people.  The chances that this is someone truly “senior”, i.e., a cabinet-level official or a direct report, are extremely low.  It’s far more likely that this person some associate assistant deputy to the associate deputy assistant to the director of some obscure bureau.

Bottom line:  This person could be anybody, or, given that the piece was obviously written by a professional writer, it could also be something the Times made up out of whole cloth.  It might well have been written by the Times’ resident Clinton hack Maggie Haberman or any number of other ethics-devoid fakenewsers employed by the fake newspaper.

Or hey, it might be the work of Bob Woodward, who is extremely gifted at spinning yarns.  We can eliminate ex-FBI Director James Comey, because the piece doesn’t read like something penned by a teenage drama queen, and Hillary Clinton, since it is not filled with myriad excuses about why she lost the 2016 election.

Other than that, it could be almost anyone.  At the end of the day, who cares?  This is just the 1,001st effort by the fake news media to dummy up something that is “the beginning of the end for Donald Trump.”  A week from today, no one will remember it happened.

Meanwhile, up under the Big Top on Capitol Hill… – So damn much happened yesterday at various hearings on the Hill that it’s hard to know where to start:

  • The CEO of Twitter, Jack Dorsey, testifed before a House committee, and did his best imitation of Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg, answering pretty much no questions honestly, and repeatedly using dodges like “we must do better,” “it was a glitch in our algorithm,” and the always handy “I’ll look into that and get back to you.  Note to Congress:  He isn’t going to get back to you.
  • Facebook’s President Sheryl Sandberg also testified at the same hearing, and employed the same tactics.  In direct contrast to Zuckerberg, who looked spookily like a poorly-programmed robot at his own hearing, Ms. Sandberg at least projected the appearance of being a real human being.  Progress.
  • When a right-wing reporter named Laura Loomer tried to disrupt the hearing, shouting complaints about being shadow-banned and suspended on Twitter, Missouri Republican Billy Long, a professional auctioneer by trade, drowned her out by shouting rapid-fire auctioneer stuff into his microphone as she was being escorted out of the room by security.
  • Someone needs to let Rep. Long into the Senate Judiciary Committee room and give him a mic.  The pre-planned constant disruptions by paid “protesters” continued during the second day of hearings over Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination to the Supreme Court. Some of the disruptions came from the same people who had been “arrested” for doing the same thing on Tuesday.
  • By late morning, even some of the Democrats on the committee, realizing that it wasn’t doing them any good, appeared to be getting tired of the nonsense.  Their tiredness showed in their questioning of the nominee, which was painfully scripted, rote and straight out the highly-predictable Democrat playbook.
  • While the dreary proceedings were taking place inside the hearing room, outside the room lurked radio talk show host Alex Jones, who was also very predictably pulling all sorts of crazy stuff.  At one point, Jones confronted Senator Marco Rubio, calling him a “snake” and a “frat-boy” and accusing him – incorrectly – of wanting to “beat me up.”  Rubio responded by telling Jones “I don’t know who you are,” which, whether true or not, Jones obviously took as an insult.  Then, in Rubio’s next breath, he said “I don’t really go on your website,” indicating he does know who Jones is after all.  So confusing.

Incidentally, in case you’re wondering what happens to these protesters when they’re “arrested,” here you go:  They are taken to a nearby police station, booked, assessed a fine of $50, and released.  That’s it.

At the end of the day, what it all added up to was the Democrats getting exactly what they wanted:  Capitol Hill was your basic three-ring circus.  Expect more of the same today.

Just another day in three-ring circus America.

That is all.
