The Week in Revew: Democrats/Media Shift Focus Away From Robert Mueller

The Campaign Update Week in Review

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

This was the week that the media/Democrat narrative mysteriously shifted away from Robert Mueller. After a couple of weeks of renewed, post-election focus on Mueller and his fake “investigation”, the media/Democrat axis of propaganda suddenly shifted to climate change, and then back to the border issue, and the 5,000-plus “migrants” from Central America overwhelming the infrastructure and public patience in Tijuana, Mexico.

This is very odd, since the Climate Scam is where the American Left always goes whenever it has run out of anything else to say. “Climate Change” is always their issue of last resort because of its nature as an ever-evolving set of theories that conveniently allow the scammer to blame literally anything that happens in our daily lives on “Climate Change”.

All those people fighting over cheap TVs at your local Wal-Mart on Black Friday? Climate Change. Riots happening in Paris, France? That’s not caused by tax protesters, it’s caused by Climate Change. Record, bitter cold across the midwest and northeast? Climate Change – never been cold up there before. Your car wouldn’t start yesterday morning? Climate Change. Brian Stelter’s disappearing hairline? Climate Change.

It’s all Climate Change all the time, and that’s why the Axis of Propaganda invariably ends up focusing on it for at least one week every year because all of their other fake narratives have come up a crapper.  Thus, this week, a week when it became increasingly obvious that Robert Mueller has a huge bag of nothing where President Trump is concerned and is continuing to systematically wrap up his 19-month witch hunt, the media and their Democrat masters fell back on their old, reliable fright tactic.

The fake news media has also been forced to report on migrant invasion happening at our Southern border after a couple of weeks of attempting to ignore a story that is hugely damaging to Democrat interests. With even the media now admitting that more than 75% of these giant “caravans” consist of military-aged males, many of whom are known violent gang members, and with President Donald Trump tweeting and talking about it each and every day, the post-election effort to simply ignore it became impossible to maintain.

There are reports this morning that several hundred of the migrant army in Tijuana will attempt to storm the border crossing there later today, so CNN will gladly report on that, hoping to get films of violence that are that fake news network’s stock in trade. Of course, CNN will only air any such video if it can spin the shots negatively against U.S. Border Patrol and military personnel who will be there to turn back the invasion.

Which is what this is.  An invasion.

Let’s go to the rest of this Week in Review:

  • It was the week that all the focus on Climate Change and the migrant invasion took preening CNN peacock Jim Acosta right out of the news cycle, and that was a glorious result. America needs more of this.
  • It was the week that Oklahoma beat West Virginia by a score of 59-56 in a college football game in which neither team’s defense apparently ever took the field of play.
  • It was the week that yet another Obama-appointed federal judge ruled that President Trump, as opposed to all other presidents in U.S. history, lacks the authority clearly given to him in the text of the U.S. Constitution.
  • It was the week that the Chief Justice of the U.S. Supreme Court, the man who twisted himself into legalistic knots in order to impose Obamacare on our populace, lied to the American public by claiming there is no difference between an “Obama judge” and the judges appointed by other presidents.  Shame, Justice Roberts, shame on you.
  • It was the week when the White House Correspondents Association ended the tradition of having a bad comedian speak at its annual Dinner, giving yet another win to Donald J. Trump.
  • It was the week that our fake news media invested tons of its air and print time once again trying to convince the American people to care about the killing of a radical Islamist blogger who used to go to dinner parties hosted by editors at the Washington Post. The effort failed. Again.
  • It was the week that President Trump correctly chose to refuse to destroy our country’s key strategic relationship with Saudi Arabia over the killing of a radical Islamist blogger who the Saudi government considered to be an enemy of the state.
  • It was the week that Broward County’s Supervisor of Elections, Brenda Snipes, having tried and failed to steal the state’s senate election for Democrat Bill Nelson and the governor’s election for Democrat Andrew Gillum, tendered her resignation in disgrace. Now, if there is still any justice left in Florida, she will be prosecuted.
  • It was the week that Democrats expressed their outrage at all the subsidies and tax breaks given by the states of New York and Virginia to secure the new Amazon regional headquarters sites, while in their next breath confirming their support for subsidies and tax breaks for solar and wind power and billionaire Elon Musk.  *sigh*
  • It was the week that British Prime Minister Theresa May took her “Brexit” deal to European Union headquarters, a deal that will essentially keep Britain under the EU’s despotic thumb. To no one’s surprise, the EU approved. Sellout is Theresa May’s middle name.
  • It was the week that French Prime Minister Emmanuel Macron, barely a week removed from denouncing Donald Trump and populism at a summit conference in Paris, saw riots break out on the streets of Paris and his personal approval rating fall to below 20%.
  • Meanwhile, in America, it was the week that President Trump saw his approval rating in the daily Rasmussen survey tick up to 51% and stay there.

There’s a message in there somewhere – wonder if the Boy Prince of Paris can see it through all the smoke rising along the Champs Elysee’?

That is all.

The Migrant Caravan Becomes Tijuana’s Problem

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Don’t go away mad, Brenda Snipes, just…well, you know the rest. –  In what is a loss from which the dimwitted people of Broward County who kept re-electing her will never recover, Supervisor of Elections Brenda Snipes submitted her formal resignation on Sunday. It is hard to understand what could have possibly motivated this action on Snipes’s part, given her stellar reputation and the fact that she had performed so well in her job for so many years.

Hah, hahahahahaha!!!  Ok, I’m kidding.  Seriously, is there anyone in America who needed firing more urgently than Brenda Snipes? I can’t think of a single person, other than perhaps the genius over at ABC who thought it was a great idea to do a reboot of “Roseanne” without Roseanne. There’s a person who needs firing. But other than him, it’s Brenda Snipes. No question.

Snipes, who is 75, expressed a desire to “spend more time with her family,” which is code for she is going to flee Broward County as quickly as possible in order to say one step ahead of the Florida Department of Law Enforcement, which has begun an investigation into all of her machinations related to this election. The grandkids aren’t going to be seeing a whole lot of MeeMaw in the near future.

Oh, hey, and execrable Democrat Senator Bill Nelson finally, at long last conceded his loss to Republican Rick Scott. With Snipes fleeing the coop, any chance of “finding” the additional 13,000 “votes” Nelson would have needed to end up winning fled with her. Nelson, who has apparently had more work done than Cher, will now have plenty of time to go get more hair plugs and another round of plastic surgery to help keep that Batman-villain smile pasted on his face.

So, the latest in a long line of efforts by Florida Democrats to steal an election is over, the main culprit is gone, and the doofuses in Broward County will have to elect another crook to man the position. Because that’s what the Democrats in South Florida do.

Where have all the people gone? – Where the NFL is concerned, they’ve decided to spend their money on more patriotic pursuits.

After two seasons and change of players and even cheerleaders disrespecting the national anthem and flag, combined with a decidedly crappy on-the-field product, the National Football League is experiencing an attendance crisis. Note I did not say “ticket sales” crisis, because, thanks to myriad corporate sponsorships, the tickets are mostly all sold well in advance.

No, the growing problem for the NFL is that fewer and fewer fans are using those tickets, as evidenced by the half-empty stadiums all over the country yesterday. Unlike football at the collegiate and other levels of the game, where almost all tickets are purchased and used by individuals, the lack of fan attendance is not an end-game for the NFL, but a preview of things to come if the League doesn’t improve its product. Because as the tickets lose their fan appeal luster, the corporate sponsors will begin to look for other, more productive venues at which to target their sponsorship dollars.

um, those are “f’s,” Mr. President. – See if you can spot the misspelling in this tweet from President Donald Trump:

We’ll just assume that was a totally innocent typo and move along.

Speaking of presidential tweets, about an hour after posting that little gem, the President had this to say about the Honduran “migrants” down in Tijuana:

Our fake news media now estimates that roughly 2,400 of these “migrants” have arrived in the Mexican border city of Tijuana, where most of them will apply for asylum in the U.S. at that city’s official port of entry. The problem for Tijuana and Mexico is that there is a long line of previous applicants ahead of them, and the wait for a formal hearing will be months down the road.

So, yeah, the city is ill-prepared to handle such a massive invasion from the South, which is why the Mexican government should have ordered its military personnel to stop the fake caravan at its southern border. Sensing a crisis building as a crowd of 2,400 overwhelmingly military-aged males set up a tent city in one their city’s major parks, hundreds of Tijuana residents staged a protest on Sunday, one that ultimately turned into a minor riot that had to be broken up by local police.

Some of the protesters carried signs reading “No Caravan, No Invasion!”.  This caused heads to explode all over CNN headquarters as all the fake journalists there scrambled to invent a narrative in which all of these Mexican citizens are racists.

It’s important to remember here – and President Trump does – that virtually none of these “migrants” are legitimate applicants for U.S. asylum. In fact, given that Mexico has already offered them asylum in that country, none of their applications will be legitimate under U.S. and international law.

These people are economic refugees – they openly admit to the few journalists who bother to ask that they want to enter the U.S. to find work and take advantage of our social welfare system. While Honduras does have gang problems, so do Chicago and Los Angeles and pretty much every other Democrat-run city in the United States. While we as Americans can feel empathy for these people and sad about their country’s lousy economic environment, we as a country have an absolute right to determine who does and does not get to enter our country. This particular mass of thousands who so openly wish to abuse our system and flout our laws does not deserve entry.

If the government of Mexico wishes to solve Tijuana’s problem, it should give these “migrants” one last chance to accept its generous offer of asylum there and put anyone who declines on the next train back to its Southern border. It’s time to stop the media-generated pretense that these scofflaws are well-meaning people, because they aren’t.

If you want to know why you should harden your heart a little bit and adamantly oppose allowing these people into our country, here is the best reason:

That’s why: Because every person who invades our country by illegal means makes it harder for those who, like Billy Idol, choose to immigrate to our country the right way.

Build the wall.

That is all.

The Week in Review: Broward County Circus Clowns Dominate the News

The Campaign Update Week in Review

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

In Broward County, the Circus Big Top never comes down. –  It will no doubt come as a shock to all of you to find out this morning that Democrat Elections Supervisor Brenda Snipes and her gang of vote-stealing circus clowns now claim to have “lost” 2,040 ballots during the course of their hand recount on Saturday.

But don’t worry – Ms. Snipes assures us that these ballots did not just get up and walk out of the building, which is oh, so helpful, right?

“The ballots are in the building. The ballots are in the building. Someone must have put a stack in a tray where they didn’t belong. And we didn’t pick that up. So we continue to count… The ballots are in this building. There would be no other place for them to be.”

Oh. Well, then, no harm no foul.  I mean, since it is Democrats we’re talking about here, they must be given special dispensation and held to far lower standards of behavior than normal human beings. We mustn’t “judge” Brenda Snipes because Brenda Snipes is a symbol. Of what, no one has ever quite explained adequately.

But yeah, 2,040 “missing” ballots, which very conveniently gives Democrat Senate candidate Bill Nelson grounds for filing yet anther lawsuit demanding some Florida judge to prolong the circus even further.  Because of course it does.

Oh, and the net result of Broward County’s 2,040-vote short “recount”?  Republican Senate candidate Rick Scott actually gained more than 700 votes.  *sigh*

Let’s go to the Week in Review:

It was the week that MSNBC’s veteran news faker Andrea Mitchell repeatedly told her tiny audience that Brenda Snipes is a Republican, and never did issue an on-air apology for her fakery. Because being a Democrat activist with a press pass means never having to say you’re sorry.

It was the week that Georgia’s Democrat looooooooser in the gubernatorial race, Stacey Abrams, refused to concede her loss to Republican Brian Kemp, claiming she had lost due to “voter suppression” that was racially-motivated.  Her main complaint was a substantial purging of the voter roles that took place under Georgia’s election laws prior to the campaign. She failed to note that Georgia’s current election laws were enacted in the late 1990s by a state legislature dominated by…wait for it…you know what’s coming, don’t you?….sure you do…DEMOCRATS.  Whew.

Ocasio Cortez Watch.:  It was the week that Alexandria Ocasio Cortez, after watching her fellow socialist Irish Bob O’Rourke raise $80 million in mostly non-Texas money in his losing effort to Ted Cruz, was quoted as saying that “All Americans know money in politics is a huge problem, but unfortunately the way that we fix it is by demanding that our incumbents give it up or by running fierce campaigns ourselves.” I don’t really even know what that means, but I swear I did not make it up.  Who could?

It was the week that the CIA produced a report claiming that the murder of radical Islamist reporter Jamal Khashoggi was ordered by Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, sent it to President Donald Trump and then leaked it to the New York Times.  Because of course they did.

It was just another week in which no American outside of our fake news media cared who ordered the killing of Jamal Khashoggi.

It was the week that portions of the fake “migrant caravan” began arriving at the border between Texas and Mexico, and officials in Tijuana loudly complained about the migrants’ presence in their community. Heads exploded all over CNN headquarters as fake journalists engaged in a frenzied search for a way of characterizing these Mexican officials as “racists.”

It was the week that French boy President Emmanuel Macron lectured President Trump and America on the evils of “nationalism,” and his public approval rating fell to 25%. There is a lesson in there somewhere, but don’t expect Macron to grasp it.

It was the week that “miniature kidneys” grown by mad scientists in a lab in St. Louis “went rogue”, suddenly sprouting brain and muscle cells, according to officials at the Washington University School of Medicine. No word if the lab director’s last name is Frankenstein, but it seems likely.

It was the week that California Democrat congressman Eric Swalwell announced his support for legislation that would force gun owners to give up any weapon the government classified as an “assault weapon,” and then let it be known that he’d be willing to have the government use nuclear weapons to enforce his desire to disarm the public.  So, just another typical liberal there.

Finally, it was the week that a federal judge issued an injunction ordering the White House to temporarily restore the press badge for CNN performance artist Jim Acosta. In preparation for Acosta’s return, the White House made some minor renovations to the White House Briefing Room:

That isn’t really a thing, but it should be.

That is all.

Vote Faking in Florida and News Faking at CNN: Some Things Never Change

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

So, how about that Creepy Porn Lawyer, huh? –  When he was representing a porn star and suing President Donald Trump, Michael Avenatti was invited to appear on CNN no fewer than 108 separate times.  Since being arrested Tuesday night for allegedly beating his spouse Tuesday evening, CNN hasn’t found it possible to invite the Creepy Porn Lawyer to appear on its fake news TV platform, nor has it managed to file a report on the event.

That little fat, bald guy who is one of their on-air personalities, and whose name I can never remember and don’t care to look up, did manage to include a few sentences about the arrest in his newsletter which is read only by demented rich white women in Manhattan’s Upper East Side, but other than that, radio silence from the news fakers at CNN.  Because that is who they are.

But teacher, the dog ate my vote count! – At a press conference on Thursday morning, Broward County elections officials, i.e, vote-stealing frauds, assured the assembled press that they would have their machine recount completed well before the 3:00 p.m. ET deadline.  But then something funny happened:  They discovered that the machine recount had added to Republican Senatorial candidate Rick Scott’s winning margin by more than 1,000 votes.

Guess what happened?  Broward’s machine recount came in 2 minutes after the deadline, which means, after all of this rigmarole, the official vote total will be what Broward originally claimed it was.

Meanwhile, over in Palm Beach County, the vote-stealing Democrat frauds didn’t even bother to really try to turn in their machine recount, and just started their manual recount, which was ordered in the Senate race by Florida’s Secretary of State, early instead.

The net result of this is that Republican Ron DeSantis is the winner in the governor’s race, although that outcome will not be certified by the SoS until next Tuesday.  So get ready for Democrat loser Andrew Gillum, who still refuses to concede, to file some sort of lawsuit in the meantime.

Rick Scott will have to wait until at least Saturday to claim his victory over detestable Bill Nelson, who will probably also file some sort of lawsuit once the hand recount is completed.

We should not expect the Democrats to let this go until they have completely exhausted every legal angle their evil minds can concoct for the simple reason that there is no downside for them in keeping this alive.  When you have 98% of the nation’s news media faking the news on your behalf and doing nothing but reciting the daily talking points you provide to them, there is no price to be paid for doing everything you can to destroy the nation’s system of free elections, which is what the Democrats have been working on doing for the last 18 years now.

So the madness will continue, most likely until the Supreme Court forces it to end.

One America News Network makes a play for Fox’s fleeing audience. – Back to CNN, you should also expect that fake news network to pursue an appeal on its lawsuit against Donald Trump for his revocation of preening performance artist Jim Acosta’s White House press badge should they receive a negative decision at the District Court level.

The idiots now running CNN’s competitor, Fox News, made the decision on Wednesday to jump in on CNN’s side in the case.  This utterly insane and indefensible decision very predictably caused a huge backlash among Fox News fans, many of whom will now be looking for another news channel to serve as their safe haven from the fake news media.

Enter OANN, the news operation that has found a small but dedicated and growing audience since its inception a few years ago. Obviously smelling an opportunity, management at OANN decided to jump into the lawsuit as well, only by filing an amicus brief supporting the White House’s side of the argument.

Here are a couple of extremely correct arguments in OANN’s brief:

“Acosta does not have a protectible First Amendment interest or right in the context of this dispute,” OANN argued, adding that “while this narcissistic approach may serve Plaintiff’s self-interests as entertainers or media figures and the network that profits therefrom, they do not serve the interests of the forum.”

and…

Acosta “has hindered our free press from functioning effectively during White House briefings,” OANN argued in a court filing, calling Acosta’s behavior “disruptive.”

Awesome.  They should establish a GoFundMe account to pay for the legal fees.  If they do, I’m giving.

CNN probably will get a correctly adverse decision here, given that the judge in the case is not an Obama appointee. The judge in fact is a Trump appointee, Timothy J. Kelly, who was confirmed to his current job in the District of Columbia by the U.S. Senate on September 8, 2017. Judges for these cases are assigned based on a random, lottery-type system, and CNN had no doubt prayed the name of an Obama judge would come up in its case, which would have given them a great chance of prevailing. The drawing of a non-Obama judge means the case will be decided on the law rather than the principles of Saul Alinsky and Democrat talking points, so CNN is no doubt already preparing its appeal to the DC Circuit, whose membership is majority Obama/Clinton appointees.

Of course, CNN’s big problem is that, should they pursue their laughable claim to the bitter end, the bitter end will come a year or two from now in front of the U.S. Supreme Court and its 5-4 Constitutionalist majority. The arguments that a) the White House has no right to enforce standards of behavior on preening fake journalists during press events, and b) Jim Acosta somehow has a constitutional right to a White House press badge so he can continue to disrupt those press events as he pursues his performance art career are going to be tough sells to John Roberts and Sam Alito and Clarence Thomas and Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh.

Judge Kelly is expected to issue his decision this morning, so we will know where this is going soon. If he rules in CNN’s favor, then the White House should simply disband the White House press corps, because it would then be in the completely intolerable position of having no authority to enforce any norms of behavior on what is nothing more than a collection of agents for the Democrat Party. That is simply not something that can be allowed to exist within this White House.

But if CNN loses, expect an appeal because, like the Democrats in Florida, there is no downside for this fake news network in doing so. It helps their ratings, and hey, you can’t harm a reputation that’s already been destroyed anyway.

That is all.

Is NBC News Faker Than CNN? It Was On Monday.

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Seems like there is a lesson to be learned in here somewhere. –  So, lessee here…the pro-Trump Republican gubernatorial candidate in Arizona, Doug Ducey, easily won his race by more than 150,000 votes.  Meanwhile, the Trump-avoiding GOP senatorial candidate, Martha McSally, who basically campaigned as the second coming of despicable RINO Jeff Flake, lost her race by about 48,000 votes at the latest count.

Hmmmm.  How do we explain that?  Think maybe there’s a cause and effect kind of thing going on there?  Nah, must be something else, because your fake news media tells you so.

Speaking of lessons to be learned, it seems the French government has a hard time doing that. – Fresh off of taking a series of cheap shots at President Donald Trump and the United States over these past four days, French President Emmanuel Macron saw his public approval ratings take another nose dive. The most recent poll shows that just 26% of French citizens approve of their juvenile President, while 71% disapprove.

President Trump must have seen that poll, given that he issued this tweet directed at Macron early this morning:

It’s good advice – are France and the rest of Europe capable of learning from the hard lessons of the past?  A review of the history of the 20th century is not at all encouraging.

Hey, hey, hey!  We have a narrative to stick to here, buddy! – NASA scientist Martin Mlynczak of NASA’s Langley Research Center expects the earth to go into a period of record…wait for it…COLD temperatures in the coming months and years thanks to a lack of solar sun spot activity.  The lack of sun spots, i.e., solar storms, in recent years is causing the sun to go into a prolonged solar minimum cycle during which the heat it emits is lower than normal.

“Right now, it is very low indeed … 10 times smaller than we see during more active phases of the solar cycle,” says Mlynczak.  “If current trends continue, it could soon set a Space Age record for cold. We’re not there quite yet, but it could happen in a matter of months.”  Yikes.

Somewhere, Al Gore is sweating anyway.

Lying is what she does for a living, after all. – Longtime Democrat fake journalist hack Andrea Mitchell repeatedly told her paltry audience on MSNBC yesterday that Broward County Elections Supervisor Brenda Snipes is…wait for it… a Republican!  I kid you not.

The problem is, of course, she isn’t.  Yes, she was put into her office by doofus ex-Florida Governor Jeb! Bush, who is sort of a Republican, but Jeb! appointed lots of Democrats while Governor there because he wanted to be all bi-partisan and stuff, like any other good RINO would have done.

But Ms. Snipes is a registered Democrat today, and has always been a registered Democrat.  We could be generous here and speculate that Mitchell was simply mistaken yesterday, but it is far more likely that she, like everyone else in our fake news media, was actually reading from a set of talking points provided to her by the Democratic National Committee.

Oh, and speaking of Andrea Mitchell, she also had this to say on Twitter yesterday:

Yes, friends, NBC News, the same organization that allowed Matt Lauer to prey on young interns and aspiring reporters for years while his co-hosts joked about it on-air, the same organization that killed Ronan Farrow’s Harvey Weinstein expose’ before he got it published by The New Yorker, has won an award for its reporting on sexual harassment.  You seriously just can’t make this stuff up.

While we’re on the subject of NBC News… – Jonathan Allen published a fawning puff piece at NBCnews.com on Democrat gubernatorial candidate Andrew Gillum yesterday under this headline:  “Gillum Bets His Future on Defending Floridians’ Right To Vote,” which is possibly the most dishonest headline in the history of headlines.

Let’s be honest about what Gillum is defending here, ok?  No one, not Rick Scott, not Ron DeSantis, not Donald Trump, not anyone is attempting to deny any American citizen the right to cast a LEGAL vote, in Florida or anywhere else. Gillum is actually betting his future on trying to force the counting of fraudulent votes, illegal votes cast by non-citizens, dead people and people who never existed.  He’s betting his future on trying to force the counting of boxes of ballots mysteriously “found” after election day in trunks of cars, elementary school kitchens and other unlikely places, and ballots that witnesses testify were in fact filled out by Democrat election workers in Broward and Palm Beach Counties.

He is defending the chronic practice by elections officials in both of those counties to refuse to comply with Florida’s election laws, despite the fact that the state’s other 65 counties consistently manage to do so.  He is defending the refusal by Snipes and Palm Beach County Elections Supervisor Susan Bucher (Also a Democrat, despite what Andrea Mitchell might try to tell you) to comply with multiple court orders. He is defending the most obvious, blatant attempt to steal an election since Al Gore tried to steal a presidential election in these same two counties back in 2000. That is what Gillum is “defending” here, nothing more.

Luckily for the nation, Gillum and Democrat Senator Bill Nelson are going to fail, but NBC and the rest of our fake news media will just keep on lying about it all anyway.  Because that is who they are and it is what they do.

That is all.

Just Another Day of Democrats Stealing Elections in America

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Why do we have to be this crazy? – Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg is “back up and working” according to a relative after taking a fall and breaking three ribs early Thursday morning. That’s good news for the 85 year-old Ginsburg, and something every thinking American should be happy about.

But of course, that’s never the case on Twitter, where some right-wing idiots responded to the news that she was in the hospital with glee over the prospect of yet another Supreme Court nomination for President Donald Trump. C’mon, people.

Meanwhile, left-wing nuts kept the operators and security guards at Ginsburg’s hospital busy by calling and showing up with offers to donate their ribs and even vital organs to keep the octagenarian alive and working. These ghouls believe it is Ginsburg’s solemn duty to remain on the court until 2025, when she would be 92, if necessary in order to deny President Trump the opportunity to name her replacement.

Supreme Court appointments are supposed to be lifetime appointments, not life sentences, folks. And to you right-wing nuts, it really is fine to hope Ginsburg decides to retire soon and enjoy life a little bit in her latter years, but it really isn’t ok to hope she dies.

My goodness.

And just like that, Broward County was suddenly finished “finding” fake ballots. – As news spread yesterday that Democrat officials in Broward and Palm Beach Counties of Florida were up to their old tricks and attempting to steal the U.S. Senate and governor’s races there, Governor Rick Scott – who happens to be the legitimate winner in the Senate race – made the decision to send state law enforcement officials in to clean up the mess.

Miraculously, just minutes after the law enforcement officials had arrived, Broward’s despicably corrupt elections supervisor, Brenda Snipes, suddenly announced she and her evil minions were done counting ballots.

There are still several thousand military and overseas ballots outstanding that have until November 16 to show up and be counted, but with state law enforcement supervising the process and both Scott and Republican Governor-elect Ron DeSantis still holding sizable leads, there is no chance of these two outlaw counties reversing the legitimate decision made by the voters.

Thanks to the likely illegal votes already counted in Broward and Palm Beach, however, both races are now within the .5% margin that triggers automatic recounts under Florida law.  Thus, the nation will be treated to yet another fake news media circus thanks to rampant voter fraud operations by the Democrats in South Florida. These people make Lyndon Johnson and George Parr look like rank amateurs.

Meanwhile, out in Arizona… – Speaking of Democrats trying to steal elections, post-election day counting in Maricopa and Yuma Counties in Arizona miraculously “found” enough votes to change Republican Martha McSally’s 17,000 vote “win” into a 9,000 vote deficit to Democrat Kyrsten Sinema on Thursday as the Republican governor there did nothing to intervene in the process.  But don’t give up hope yet- there are reports that the remaining ballots left to be counted over the next few days are largely from areas that are normally Republican precincts.  Of course, unless state law enforcement is called in to supervise the process, those Republican-leaning areas have a way of turning into Democrat-leaning areas.

We’ll just have to wait and see.

And in Georgia, the peach still hasn’t conceded. – Ultra-leftist Democrat Stacey Abrams, who has lost the governor’s race to Republican Brian Kemp by more than 73,000 votes, still refuses to concede in the hopes that Democrat election officials can follow the lead of Broward County and “find” boxes mysteriously filled with votes overwhelmingly cast in her favor. Unless state officials there intercede, don’t be too surprised if that happens.  These people are soulless ghouls and will do anything to “win.”

Speaking of Lyndon Johnson and George Parr… – By the time the mysterious “Box 13” was “discovered” by election officials in Jim Wells County, Texas (not in Duval County, as is often misstated) to give that 1948 Democrat senate primary race to the man who would go onto become a president, President Harry Truman – himself a Democrat – had sent in FBI agents to begin an investigation at the request of Texas Governor Coke Stevenson, also a Democrat.

While it is probably premature to make any such move related to the shenanigans going on in Arizona and Georgia, the situation with utterly corrupt election officials in Palm Beach, Broward and several other counties in Florida has become so outrageous that it really does seem as if federal oversight would be appropriate. Every election cycle, we end up with a situation in which these Democrat-run counties are in violation of Florida’s law requiring votes to be counted and submitted within 48 hours of the polls having closed on election day. This does not happen in any Republican-run part of the state, or in some Democrat parts of the state, like Miami-Dade County.

Of course, the problem here is that the FBI was itself so utterly corrupted during the Obama years that we can’t be sure federal agents would do anything effective to stop the fraud. In any event, it is crystal clear we simply cannot trust any vote count coming from these Florida counties and many other Democrat-run areas of the country, and that is a blot on the legitimacy of our entire system.

Voter fraud is real, it is rampant, and it is exclusively a Democrat-run monopoly.

That is all.

It Was a Big Fake News Weekend for America’s Fake News Media

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Tired of all this Winning yet? – Three new polls were released this past week showing that, despite the ongoing anti-Republican onslaught by the fake news media, the generic congressional preference measure leading into the mid-term elections continues to narrow.  On Sunday, Fox News released its new Opinion Dynamics poll, which shows the measure narrowing from a 15 percent Democrat advantage in November to just 5 percent today.  Marist also released its latest survey, which also pegs the Democrat edge at 5 percent.  A couple of days earlier, Reuters/Ipsos said its newest data shows the Democrat lead down to just 3 percent.

Make no mistake about it:  The Democrats do currently have a real advantage in voter enthusiasm, and we see evidence of that every day.  That edge is likely higher today than it was a week ago in the wake of the GOP congress’s passage of that horrific Omnibus bill on Friday.  But more than 6 months remain until Election Day, so President Donald Trump and the GOP have plenty of time to create some voter enthusiasm on their side as well.

President Trump has repeatedly proven himself to be capable of doing that.  The rest of the GOP?  Not so much.  Still, if we are still seeing congressional preference polls with such narrow margins come November, Democrats will find themselves disappointed yet again when the vote counts start coming in.

Yeah, so, who’s counting? – Speaking of Democrat voter drive opportunities, the “March for our Lives” rallies took place on Saturday, and the fake news media did all it could to glorify all who took part in them, and vilify all who did not.  Because, after all, that’s what today’s fake journalists get paid to do.

Immediately after the rally in Washington, D.C. had concluded, fake news media outlets breathlessly reported the attendance to have been as high as 800,000, which, if accurate, would have made it the largest such rally in D.C. history.  Organizers of the event had been a little more conservative in their estimates of the crowd size, pegging it more in the range of 500,000 to 600,000, which would still be a record for those who are keeping score at home.

Unfortunately for everyone, an independent, non-political firm out of Virginia begs to differ with those estimates.  Digital Design & Imaging Service, which uses flyover imaging of such crowds as the basis for forming its calculations, told CBS News that the turnout for the event was more in the range of 200,000 at its early-afternoon peak.

That’s still a big bunch of people, and wasn’t it just great seeing all those teenagers exercising their constitutionally-guaranteed freedom to protest against…um….well, ok, they were protesting against their constitutionally-guaranteed freedoms.

Meanwhile, Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel, whose gross incompetence and shameful grasping for money led directly to the tragic school killings that germinated Saturday’s protest marches, still has a job.  As always seems to be the case when abject failures by leftwing government officials lead to tragedy, no one who was really responsible is being held accountable.  The fact that Israel still has his job more than a month after the atrocity that his negligence caused is an insult to every American.

Facebook is losing favor with the public, according to opinion polls in the U.S. and Germany published over the weekend.  The only question I have is, why?

Of all the fake scandals made up by our fake news media hacks at CNN and elsewhere, this ongoing attack on Facebook may well be the fakest of them all.  There is literally nothing new in what Facebook is being accused of having done in its unethical sharing of user data with the Cambridge Analytica firm.  Nothing.  Not one damn thing.

Facebook has been unethically sharing its user data with all manner of firms and political campaigns pretty much since its inception.  Numerous former Obama campaign officials have now publicly stated that they had exactly the same access to your Facebook data during the 2008 and 2012 campaigns.  The fake media knew about this, even reported on it, and there was no scandal about it.

The only difference today is that Cambridge Analytica temporarily did work for the Trump Campaign, an unforgivable act of evil in the collective hive mind of the fake journalist fake profession.  Thus, Facebook, whose own evil minions worked as hard as they could possibly work to tilt the 2016 election in favor of Hillary Rotten Clinton, has suddenly become the fake media’s favorite whipping boy.

The truth about this fake scandal is that, had Cambridge Analytica done work for the Clinton Campaign, none of you would have ever heard of them.  There is no scandal here, there is only fake news at its very worst.  Far be it from me to want to defend the sleazebags who run the Facebook scam, but this episode really has taken the practice of fake news to a whole new level of fakery.

Just another day in fake news America.

That is all.

The Biggest Problem with Sheriff Israel is that he is So Common

The Evening Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

The trouble with Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel is that he is so damn common in our society today:  Arrogant, utterly incompetent and judged in his job based on “metrics” that have little to do with actually getting his job done.

In a really fine piece in Sunday’s Orange County Register, Carl Cannon condemns the Sheriff’s pathetic excuse-making in the wake of the shooting:

The Broward Sheriff’s Office resorted to its own bureaucratic gobbledygook, telling reporters that none of his behavior “appeared arrestable under Florida law.” This is false. It’s not legal in Florida to hold a gun to your mother’s head, or menace the family that took you in, or threaten to shoot up a school. Authorities could also have pursued an involuntary commitment to a mental facility under Florida’s “Baker Act,” which might have given him the psychological treatment he needed and seems to crave. It also might have made him ineligible to legally purchase firearms.

Of course, Israel actively avoided arresting the Parkland shooter despite having his officers called to the kid’s home an amazing 39 times in the 3 years leading up to the mass shooting, precisely because of the metrics used to judge his performance.  Those metrics required the crime rate among high school aged teenagers fall each year in order to maximize the federal money coming into the county’s schools and sheriff’s department, as part of an agreement they’d entered into with the Obama Administration’s Justice Department.  Israel’s department had accomplished that goal by simply refusing to enforce the law:  thus, his job performance was judged by those metrics to be outstanding.

The truly sad thing about Israel is that he really meant it last week when he told CNN’s Jake Tapper that he had provided “amazing leadership” in his job as Sheriff.  Hey, his job performance had been judged to be outstanding as all that federal money came pouring in – what else would he believe?

The hapless, witless Sheriff is hardly alone.  Our society is filled with glorified bureaucrats like Israel posing as law enforcement officers while responding to the perverse incentives set up by the idiotic edicts coming down from Washington, DC.  Our public and higher education systems are also filled with similar perverse incentives, with teachers and administrators forced to spend more and more of their time fulfilling tasks designed to maximize state and federal money rather than actually educating our children.  Common Core and standardized testing are just two of hundreds of examples that have led to the steady diminution of the quality of education in our society.

This is no surprise:  This is in fact the classic outcome of command-and-control socialism.  The more nationalized the school curriculum and law enforcement objectives become, the less accountable the people implementing them will become to the local public.  It is in fact inevitable that hapless men and women like Sheriff Israel will increasingly become the familiar faces of our nation’s sheriff’s departments.

Sheriff Israel is not the cause of what took place three weeks ago in Parkland, Florida – the FBI was every bit as hapless and every bit as much to blame as they respond to their own perverse incentives – he is just one of the effects of the nationalization of the goals and objectives of local law enforcement.

The biggest problem with Mr. Israel is that he is just as common as a day’s laundry in America today.

That is all.

If Dissembling Were an Olympics Event, Adam Schiff and Scott Israel Would be Co-Gold Medal Winners

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Tired of all this Winning yet? – The 2018 U.S. Winter Olympics team was a colossal flop, winning just 23 medals overall, the lowest U.S. total since 1998.  This comes despite the fact that the Games have been loaded up with junk sports over the last 20 years specifically in order to give the U.S. a shot at winning more medals, in hopes of boosting TV ratings.  Not surprisingly, the poor U.S. performance also led directly to these Olympic games setting new lows in terms of television audience.

But all is not lost, sports fans!   As The Simpsons eerily predicted 8 years ago, the U.S. men’s curling team was able to raise their brooms over their heads as they were awarded the gold medal for the first time ever!  It’s like they always say, if your nation’s main core competency in athletics is sliding a gigantic rock across 50 feet of ice while a guy clears its way with a broom, you are becoming Norway, which, as President Trump recently assured us, is definitely not a shithole country.  So we got that going for us.  #Winning!

While my website was down on Saturday, bug-eyed California Congressman Adam Schiff released his long-awaited “counter-memo” on FISA abuse to a public that is now obsessed with other matters.  The fact that Schiff took 2 weeks to edit a few sentences and remove some footnotes from his tome and then released it quietly on a Saturday – ensuring a minimum amount of news coverage – tells you all you really need to know about the thing.

The Democrats with press passes in the fake news media predictably hailed the Schiff memo as the word of god.  But basically, once you get past all the irrelevant fluff and attacks on President Donald Trump scattered throughout the thing, the Schiff memo simply confirms what Devin Nunes and Trey Gowdy had already told us three weeks ago:  That the Obama Administration used the Fake Trump Dossier as its main basis for obtaining a FISA warrant to spy on the Trump Campaign, and later on the Trump Transition team; that the FBI and DOJ did not inform the court that the Dossier was paid for by the DNC and the Clinton Campaign;  that the information in the Dossier was unverified and was obtained by a British agent and sourced mainly from Russian agents; and that this process was repeated 4 times over a period of 9 months.

Schiff’s latest distraction not only does not dispute those key facts of wrongdoing by the Obama FBI and DOJ, it actively confirms them.  In response to Schiff’s laughable dud, Nunes issued a point-by-point dissection of thing, which everyone at CNN and MSNBC studiously ignored.  You can bet the balance of your 401(k) that Schiff, having created the misdirection he was shooting for, will now clam up like a mid-level mob operative and hope this particular aspect of the House Intelligence Committee’s work fades away.

Meanwhile, in Florida, Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel, barely hours removed from hilariously bragging to fake CNN host Jake Tapper that he had provided “amazing leadership” in his duties as Sheriff, told a local NBC affiliate’s reporter that he’s just not responsible at all for the actions of his deputies.  I swear I don’t make this stuff up:  “As I said, I’m the Sheriff, my name’s on the door,” Israel said. “The people responsible are the ones who took the calls and didn’t follow up on them, as it was with the FBI, as it was with any person.  Leaders are responsible for the agency, but leaders are not responsible for a person.  I gave him a gun. I gave him a badge. I gave him the training. If he didn’t have the heart to go in, that’s not my responsibility.”

As of early Monday morning, this aspiring circus clown still has his job, but one wonders whether the people of Florida have enough self-respect to allow that situation to last into Monday afternoon.  If Speaker of the Florida House Richard Corcoran has his way, it won’t.  Corcoran and 73 of his Republican colleagues sent a letter to Florida Gov. Rick Scott on Sunday that demands he immediately suspend Israel for “dereliction of duty and incompetence.”  Although sheriffs in Florida are elected to their office, the state’s law does give the state’s governor the right to take such action.

Given that, to borrow one of Israel’s favorite words, it’s rather “amazing” that Governor Scott has waited this long to get this embarrassment to his state’s dissembling face off of America’s television sets.  No time like the present, Governor.  What are you waiting for?

Just another day in Winning Curling is still Winning America.

That is all.
