Meet the New Attorney General, Same as the Old Attorney General

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Paris Burning Watch:

Very predictable next step for President Emanuel Macron and his globalist government: Shut down the country’s Internet and other communications, as the government continues its goosestep towards outright fascist thuggery.

The government announced on Friday that it has deployed 89,000 (!) riot police throughout the country in preparation for today’s demonstrations by the “yellow vest” demonstrators, who are protesting the government’s planned implementation of a confiscatory carbon tax it claims will help meet France’s emissions goals under the Paris Climate Accords. The yellow vest demonstrations began as peaceful events a few weeks ago but have turned increasingly violent as they have inevitably been infiltrated by radicals from both the left and the right.

As I write this early Saturday in the U.S. there have already been more than 500 arrests made in Paris, as police began the day by using tear gas on the demonstrators around the Arc de Triomphe.  As Reuters reports:

“A police spokeswoman told reporters there were about 1,500 protesters on the Champs Elysees boulevard and authorities said 211 people had been arrested after police found weapons such as hammers, baseball bats and metal petanque balls on them.”

Somewhat hilariously, the Reuters report contains this passage a few paragraphs later:

“We will do all we can so that today can be a day without violence, so that the dialogue that we started this week can continue in the best possible circumstances,” Prime Minister Edouard Philippe said on French television.

This situation is completely out of hand at this point, deteriorating every day, and Philippe and Macron obviously have not the slightest clue about how to deal effectively with it. Thus, the most likely expectations should be for further efforts to crack down on the movement and the population at large. Because that’s what globalist/socialist governments do.

Ocasio Cortez Watch:

Speaking of things globalist/socialists like to do, this happened on Friday.:

Yes, it’s true – after Donald Trump Jr. re-tweeted a meme about our intrepid new congresswoman from one of the outer-boroughs of New York City (is it Queens?), the  mental midget tweeted a reminder to him that that was all, like, dumb and stuff because she was about to, you know, kinda, like have subpoena power and stuff like that.

Clearly an abuse of power, clearly a violation of congressional ethics and we can count on the Republicans in congress to clearly do absolutely nothing about it.  Because that’s who they are, and what they do – or don’t do, in this case.

Right on Cue, Meet our New Bush-ite Attorney General Nominee. – How ironic is it that, the day after late former President George Herbert Walker Bush was laid to rest in College Station, current President Donald Trump names William Barr, who served Bush 41 as Attorney General, as his nominee to become the AG again, 24 years later? Why, it’s almost as if one event led to another this week.

If President Trump’s thought was that the nomination of a man who had served the ex-President who the Democrats and their fake news media agents had praised all week long might be confirmed by the senate in a dignified and orderly process, well, he was kidding himself. All the demented creeps at CNN and MSNBC immediately flew into high character assassination gear, as did Democrat politicians who immediately began calling for Barr to recuse himself from pretty much everything if he is ultimately confirmed.

Despicable Vermont Senator, the relic Pat Leahy, had this to say:

“I have known Bill Barr a long time.  He has a long record in both the private sector and public service that needs to be thoroughly vetted by the senate. This includes recent, troubling comments about investigations of keen interest to the President who is nominating him.”

In other words, Barr has expressed thoughts about the Mueller investigation, and thus must recuse himself if he wants any Democrat votes in favor of his confirmation. Apparently, only a person who is basically a blind, deaf mute where Mueller’s Witch Hunt is concerned is any longer qualified to serve in the eyes of Senate Democrats.

Barr has a reputation in Washington as an upright and honorable man. As a reminder, so did Robert Mueller when he was nominated, and we now see clearly what that means and doesn’t mean. Barr is not someone who is going to come into the AG job and immediately restart investigations into Uranium One and all the myriad other Clinton/Obama wrongdoing.

On the other hand, assuming DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz and Utah U.S. Attorney John Huber really have been conducting real investigations of their own, Barr is also not someone who is going to come into the AG job and shut those down.

And the reality about Mueller and his evil minions is this: They have nothing real where President Trump is concerned and are systematically winding their fake investigation down and preparing their final report, which they intend to be a roadmap for impeachment by the new Democrat majority in the House. That’s all the Mueller effort ever was, and it becomes more and more obvious with each passing day. President Trump has no intention of interfering with Mueller and never did, something the Democrats and fake news media appear incapable of comprehending.

What Barr represents to President Trump is an extremely well-qualified and safe pick for the job.  In the end, when all the posturing by creeps like Leahy is said and done, Barr will end up with the support of all 53 Republicans in next year’s U.S. Senate, and support from just enough Democrats to get over the 60 vote bar needed to be confirmed to the job.

One other key thing to keep in mind about William Barr is that he served in a Bush Administration that built many miles of steel wall along our Southern border, and paid for it from the Defense budget, which is perfectly legal and proper once a president makes a finding that it is necessary for national security. Why President Trump has failed to go this route is anyone’s guess – perhaps he just wanted to give Paul Ryan and Mitch McConnell every opportunity possible to get their jobs done – but assuming Barr is confirmed, Trump will have an AG who understands the President has full authority to go down that road.

Just food for thought.

That is all.

The Left’s War on Women Just Keeps Building

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

A fitting farewell to 41. – It is no secret by now that those who have held the office of the presidency are allowed to plan their own funerals, to include the use of national facilities such as the Capital Rotunda and the glorious National Cathedral. It is a real testament to the personal character of George Herbert Walker Bush that his funeral – in stark contrast to that of a late senator who recently was allowed to disrupt the nation’s business for nine full days – was dignified, serious, understated, filled with self-effacing humor and humility, and completely lacking in any hint of lingering bitterness.

It should also surprise no one that every one of the four eulogists for yesterday’s event – biographer Jon Meacham, former Canadian Prime Minister Brian Mulroney, former U.S. Senator from Wyoming Alan Simpson, and of course, Bush 41’s son, George W. Bush – were all pitch perfect in their remarks, capturing the essence of the man and building on one another until the final climax. It was an historic day – the first time a presidential son was able to eulogize his presidential father – a somber day, and in the end, a joyful day that celebrated not just the career of the man, but also his essential character.

And that, after all, is what Bush 41 will most be remembered for by most Americans: His character, which was marked by overwhelming love and unending forgiveness. His love for his wife Barbara; his family and friends; his cities of Kennebunkport, Maine and Houston, Texas; and for the country he served throughout his adult life.

There is so much to be learned, so many lessons about the wrong way and the right way to do things from these two recent state funerals, and we can only hope that most Americans learned the most from this week’s events.

Paris Burning Watch:

If you thought the Macron government’s decision to “suspend” the implementation of its confiscatory carbon tax for six months would calm the public and end the protests in Paris, well, think again.

Again, it’s important to remember that the motivation behind Macron’s carbon tax is his fool’s effort to meet the emissions targets to which the French government agreed in the Paris Climate Accords. The other key aspect to remember about that agreement is that developing nations were promised $100 billion per year to help them pay to get their own emissions in line.

And here’s the rub:  Most of that money was going to come from the taxpayers of the United States of America. That’s what America’s Worst Mistake – Barack Hussein Obama – committed us all to doing.  Which is why President Donald Trump (I never tire of typing those three glorious words) pulled our country out of that massive wealth redistribution scam last summer.

So, without America and its deep pockets footing the bills for that redistribution, guess who gets to take up the tab? France and the other “developed” nations of Europe, of course, along with maybe a little help from Canada, Australia, China and Japan.

Most French citizens probably haven’t even figured that part out yet. If you think the past two weeks have been troublesome on the streets of Paris, just wait until they all figure out that these massive new taxes aren’t just to try to pay for France’s participation in that deal, but also to help pay for the participation of the same third world countries who have been flooding France and most of Europe with “refugees” over the last decade.

Just food for thought.

From our You Seriously Just Cannot Make This Stuff Up Department:

This is real, I swear it…

You Seriously Cannot Make This Stuff Up, Part II:

Hey, Bloomberg caught onto this reality just yesterday:

So think about this: The #MeToo movement has ensured that in today’s corporate environment, any man who is accused of anything that could be remotely defined to be “harassment” will be automatically presumed guilty and most likely summarily fired by the company, unless he is a very well-known liberal senior executive, in which case it takes a little while longer for him to be fired, plus he gets a huge severance package like Les Moonves.

What, someone really believed that that environment would not create some sort of backlash? Hell, the stuff talked about in that article isn’t even really a backlash – it’s simple self-defense.

And the truth is, this is nothing new – the focus on sexual harassment in the workplace and the need to find ways to avoid it came about in the 1970s. I worked in the corporate world for 40 years, starting in 1979. More than 20 years ago, I made the personal decision to never take a one-on-one meeting with a female peer or subordinate in an office with the door closed. It wasn’t that I didn’t trust and respect the women I worked with – it was just that you couldn’t take the risk of being accused of anything like that. Because once an accusation is made, whether it is true or not, your reputation at that company is forever damaged.

Having said all of that, sexual harassment in the workplace is a despicable act that needs to be punished. It is honestly mind-boggling to me that we are here in the year 2018, after 40 years of focus on this issue, and there are still men who think this kind of boorish behavior is somehow acceptable. It isn’t, you clowns.

But the way to punish it is not to suspend rules of evidence and the presumption of innocence for the accused, as the leftists in the #MeToo movement insist. What the Bloomberg article truly demonstrates is that this rush to persecute, regardless of how many innocent people become ensnared, actually does more harm to career women than it helps.

It’s just one more aspect of the political left’s war on women, and that war is very real. The rights of genetic females are being diminished in our society every day.

You have the Democrat Party and its judges fully in support of the effort by our news media and pop culture to normalize Sharia Law and the genital mutilation practices of some Muslim sects; you have Democrats passing laws that allow people with male genitalia to use the same public restrooms as your wives and daughters; you have people with male genitalia and musculature being allowed to take athletic trophies away from little girls and share locker rooms with them at many schools. You have a supporter of Sharia Law serving for two years now as co-chair of something called the Women’s March, and a woman-abusing buddy of Louis Farrakhan recently getting elected as the Democrat Attorney General of Minnesota.

It’s a real war, ladies, and you’re the target. And head’s up: It isn’t conservatives who are fighting it.

That is all.

Fascism is on the March all Over the Globe, and America is no Exception

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

RIP, George Herbert Walker Bush. – I was awake in the middle of the night when I heard about the passing at the age of 94 of former President George H.W. Bush, just eight months after the death of former First Lady Barbara Bush. I laid awake thinking of what to say about it all. I didn’t agree with him about some things, did agree with him about others, but let’s just leave the politics to others, because I’m not going to say anything negative about such a gracious man who was an institution in my favorite city of Houston, and served his country with honor and valor in World War II.

I literally ran into President Bush and the First Lady at a reception at the Johnson Space Center in Pasadena 26 years ago, and almost got arrested for it. I was walking along talking with a couple of friends, not looking where I was headed when the Bush’s suddenly emerged from the gift shop and I bumped right into him. A couple of Secret Service guys properly rushed in and started walking me and my friends away, but the President just laughed, called them off, and then – as was typical of Mr. Bush – spent about five minutes chatting us up before the agents convinced him to move along.

We’ll hear hundreds of stories like this over the next several days – seems like half the residents of Houston have a story like it to tell – because that was who this particular President was in his personal life. In the end, regardless of what anyone thinks about how he went about it, he leaves behind a lifetime of service to his country, in the process compiling a resume as impressive as anyone in our nation’s history, and that is something to respect and admire.

Rest in Peace, Poppy.  You deserve it.

NPR jumps headlong into the newsfaking business. – Ok, NPR was already there to some extent, but this week they showed they’re serious about it. The news fakers over there smeared Donald Trump, Jr. on Friday, running with a fake story and then refusing to properly retract it and issue a real correction.

The story, published early Friday morning, falsely alleged Trump Jr.’s testimony before congress about a short-lived plan to build a Trump Tower in Moscow several years before the 2016 elections conflicted with that of Michael Cohen, who plead guilty for lying to congress over the matter earlier in the week. But a reading of the transcript of that committee hearing – a transcript that NPR itself was quoting from – very quickly and easily showed that Trump Jr. had said nothing at all that was in any way untrue.

NPR let the story linger out there in the ether of the Internet for five long hours until, late on a Friday afternoon, after all the other fake news media outlets had had a chance to roll it into fake stories of their own, they finally issued a semi-correction, but left the original piece still sitting out there basically unchanged. This is despicable, inexcusable behavior, something we’d expect from CNN or the New York Times.

Apparently, that’s where the people in charge want to take NPR. What a sad day.

This is what creeping fascism looks like. – In the second week of December, representatives from all over the world will meet in Marrakesh to approve and commit their countries to something called the “International Compact on Migration.” As you can see from watching the video below, the goal of the compact will be to make criticism of mass migration…wait for it… a HATE CRIME punishable with prison time:

As the writer notes, the U.S. will not have anyone in Marrakesh thanks to President Donald Trump, and will not become a party to this fascist compact. But Canada will, and you can bet most of the fading European semi-democracies will be there as well. These international compacts are not binding, but their provisions do end up working their ways into the laws of the signatory nations like cockroaches eating their way into your kitchen baseboards.

Here’s the lesson: If the 2016 election had gone the other way, President Pantsuit Princess would have her emissary there under orders to be the first signatory to this completely anti-democracy compact.

Frightening indeed.

Here’s what a headlong rush into fascism looks like. – But hey, if you want to see fascism already in full force here in the United States, here you go:

The rest of your fake news media studiously ignored this huge story, which should not surprise anyone, since the whistleblower in question was in possession of documents damaging to the Pantsuit Princess and Special Counsel Robert Mueller. The documents in question relate to the Uranium One scandal, in which both Mueller and the Fainting Felon were heavily involved, and to the Clinton Foundation.

The whistleblower, a poor schlub named Dennis Cain, had done his duty to the country, turning the documents over to a congressional committee investigating both matters. He was assured by both the committee and by DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz that he was doing so under the auspices of the Intelligence Community Whistleblower Protection Act. After his client delivered the documents to Horowitz, Cain’s lawyer says he was assured by Horowitz that an assistant would hand-carry them over to the congressional committee.

The FBI agents who showed up at Cain’s home allegedly told him he was in possession of “stolen government property”, and, after Cain had turned the documents and his personal computer over to them, spent another six hours ransacking Cain’s home. This is Gestapo behavior.

The lesson here? These whistleblower protection laws mean nothing if you’re blowing the whistle on someone named Clinton or Mueller.

Hey, what the hell is Acting Attorney General Matt Whitaker doing in his new job, anyway?

That is all.
