With Just Two Tweets, Trump Puts The Squad in Full Control of the Democrat Party

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

Man, you go on vacation and all hell breaks loose. – Seriously, it happens every time. Of course, we are in the age of President Donald Trump, so all hell breaks loose pretty much every day. But most of the time, there is a method to the President’s madness, and this time is no exception. It’s important that we all understand it.

Basically, as of Tuesday, President Trump put The Squad in full and complete control of the Democrat Party. The Squad is pictured here:

These four vicious, racist, anti-Semitic, anti-American scumbags now control the U.S. House of Representatives. They are now fully identified in the public’s mind as the face of the national Democrat Party. When they go to the polls next year, American voters will have images of these four sneering anti-American bigots at the front of their minds as what and who they will be voting for if they vote for Democrat candidates.

Yeah, the Democrat ticket will have someone like Kamala Harris or Fauxcahontas or someone not yet in the race at the top, but a vote for any Democrat for any office just became a vote for the policy choices and political thuggery represented by the four brutish women pictured above.

Trump’s Sunday morning tweets were no accident, and they did this.  Coming just at a time in which many Democrat office-holders were waking up to the threat The Squad represents to their Party and were beginning to condemn the four thugs, those tweets created the single greatest virtue-signaling frenzy in American history. As literally every left-leaning white male and female in the nation rushed to get onto Twitter and Facebook and improperly label the tweets as “racist” (they aren’t), all of those almost-woke Democrat officeholders now had no alternative but to line up, log-in and signal some damn virtue of their own.

As a result, the Democrat Party is now unalterably entangled with the jack-booted, bigoted, Pol Pot-like policies being pursued by The squad. The 2020 elections will now be a referendum on those policies, and they will not go well for the Democrats or their new leaders.

This new ad from the RNC gives you a preview of how it’s all going to play out:

 

Genius.  Now, back to my vacation.

That is all.

All that Post-Election Panic in 2016 Begins to Make Sense

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

[Editor’s Note: The Campaign Update will be silent from July 11 through July 23 because Dave needs some down time.]

Is it all starting to make sense to you now? – Are you starting to understand why the election of Donald J. Trump – a non-swamp creature with no ties to the Deep State – put the Democrats and establishment Republicans into such a state of outright panic?

In the wake of the arrest and charging of pedophile Jeffrey Epstein, does the focused campaign over the last three years by our fake news media and entertainment industry to normalize pedophilia in the public consciousness begin to make sense? As you discover all of Epstein’s relationships to not just the Clintons, but also to all manner of famous Democrats and media and entertainment figures, do you now understand why Hillary, after she was asked a few “tough” questions by disgraced sex abuser Matt Lauer during the 2016 campaign, scolded him that “we will all hang” if Trump were to win the election?  Which, incidentally, he did?

Are you now starting to understand why Slick Willie issued that classic Clintonian butt-covering statement to the press last night? Because everyone needs to understand that an ex-President would not have issued such a statement unless he knows some truly serious, damaging information is now in the hands of investigators.

Think about it: He already has 90% of the news media feverishly scrambling to cover for him. WikiPedia has already altered its page on Jeffrey Epstein to eliminate all mention of the Clintons. So there was no reason to issue that statement solely based on the information that is already public. The Clintons know that Slick’s name is all over the flight logs of the Lolita Express, and they know what Bill – and Hillary – did with Epstein over the years.

Now, they also know all of that information is in the hands of federal prosecutors, and they no longer have Eric Holder or Loretta Lynch or Robert Mueller or James Comey in power to cover for them. That’s why you saw Slick issue that statement last night. It’s the setting of a favorable narrative that is now being parroted all across our fake news media landscape, providing cover in preparation for the storm they know is coming.

This is no different than when, in 1998, Slick, then POTUS, wagged his crooked index finger at the cameras and said “I did not have sex with that woman, Miss Lewinsky.” It’s the setting of a damage control narrative. It’s what the Clintons do, and what they have always done.

And here’s the thing: It’s always worked for them before, but before, they’ve always had fellow swamp creatures in positions of high power to help cover for them.

How absurd is the claim of “I know nothing! Nothing!” by Sgt. Schulz, er, ex-President Clinton?  So ridiculous that reporter Conchita Sarnoff, who has spent the last decade investigating the case, outright called him a liar on national television Monday night. Watch:

Ouch.

The Campaign Update, as noted above, will be silent for the next couple of weeks as I go to recharge my batteries and get a little R&R. Some readers are scolding me that now is a bad time to be doing that because so much is going on. But think about the last few years and tell me when we had two weeks during which there was not a bunch of really important stuff going on.

The fact is, there are no longer any good times to do this, which is why I’m doing it now. See you in a couple of weeks!

That is all.

Swalwell Out; Steyer In; Democrats Swap One Hopeless Doofus For Another

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

[Editor’s Note: The Campaign Update will be silent from July 11 through July 23 because Dave needs some down time.]

The world mourns the loss of a leftist hero. – Americans all over…well…somewhere were saddened on Monday when Democrat presidential non-contender Eric Swalwell, who famously promised on Twitter to nuke recalcitrant citizens (see below) who refused to surrender their guns to his planned army of jack-booted thugs, announced he was ending his campaign. Swalwell had run a valiant, disciplined and focused campaign, one that saw him rise all the way up to next-to-last place in the race, reaching as high as .000001% in the polls before the first debates two weeks ago.

Sadly, this turned to to be the point of Peak Swalwell.

After what critics unfairly labeled as a “laughable,” “cartoonish,” and “is this guy really serious?” debate performance saw his poll standing fall to .00000001% in the polls taken afterwards, Swalwell reassessed his chances. Realizing that not even appearing on the same stage with the likes of Kirsten Gillibrand and John Hickenlooper had helped his standing with potential voters, Swalwell decided to throw in the towel (if only he could have been on-stage with Beto O’Rourke – then he’d have appeared almost normal). The decision point apparently came when he saw that his popularity had fallen even below that of the despicable and buffoonish Bill DeBlasio.

So back to congress he will go, where he can once again take up the gauntlet as CNN’s second-favorite liar about the Mueller Report, right behind his fellow California congressman, Adam Schiff.

“We have to be honest about our own candidacy’s viability,” Swalwell told reporters at a press conference Monday. “Today ends our presidential campaign, but it is the beginning of an opportunity in Congress with a new perspective shaped by the lives that have touched me and my campaign over the past few months.”

Neither of the two residents of Dubuque, Iowa whose lives apparently touched Swalwell were available for comment. Both were too busy cooking up a new batch of meth.

 

But never fear, for Tom Steyer is here! – Yes, friends, just when things look their darkest, a new self-serving light appears on the horizon. Self-styled “environmental” activist Tom Steyer – hey, did you know he amassed his fortune investing in coal? – plans to jump into the race today.

Oh, joy!

You may remember Steyer. He’s the guy who famously spent tens of millions of his own money in 2017-2018 on a series of TV ads promoting the impeachment of President Donald Trump. He is so personally repugnant on television that the ads actually caused the President to go up in the polls.

Oh, so he’s just like Eric Swalwell, but with a lot of money?  Yes, that guy.

Steyer is a one-trick pony, a pony whose one trick is exactly the same as Washington state Governor Jay Inslee, another sort-of-candidate who is polling at .000000001% in the presidential horse race. So Steyer apparently plans to swoop into the race, scoop up Swalwell’s .000000001% support and fight it out with Inslee over how to destroy the U.S. economy to fight the bogeyman “Climate Change.” The “winner” would presumably then have .00000002% support and be on a bullet to overtake DeBlasio for next-to-last place.

After that, he would obviously target Gillibrand and her .00000003% support, and be off to the races.

No telling how many millions Steyer is willing to part with in order to achieve his goals, but a fool and his money are soon parted, and Steyer has billions to part with. So, it’s probably a lot.

If they didn’t actually exist (which I’m assuming they actually do, though I have no real proof), the greatest fiction writers in world history could never come close to making these Democrats up.

That is all.

Michael Bennet: The Next Media-fed Democrat “Rising Star”?

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

[Editor’s Note: The Campaign Update will be silent from July 11 through July 23 because Dave needs some down time.]

Some interesting tidbits in the news this morning. Consider this:

“Americans demand climate action (as long as it doesn’t cost much),” writes Reuters analyst Valerie Volcovici. “Nearly 70% of Americans, including a majority of Republicans, want the United States to take ‘aggressive’ action to combat climate change — but only a third would support an extra tax of $100 a year to help, according to a Reuters/Ipsos poll.”

What do those results tell us? It tells us the vast majority of Americans understand in their hearts that the whole “Climate Change” alarmist industry is a giant scam, which is why they aren’t willing to spend any real money on it. But even many who recognize this will tell a pollster that they are for “aggressive” action to fight the scam because they feel pressured to signal the virtue of loving the “environment.”

Thus, the focused brainwashing campaign engaged in by our fake news media on this subject over the last 20 years or so has been amazingly ineffective, considering the billions of dollars they’ve invested in it. Perhaps that’s explained in part by the rising diversity of viewing options on TV, expansion of the Internet and the death of Democrat propaganda-driven newspapers.

Even the Sunday morning “news” shows are dying. The Washington Times this morning reports that the average audience for programs like “Meet the Press” and “Face the Nation” fell by 8% in 2018 and now attract an average audience of just 2.3 million viewers. The weekday evening newscasts, meanwhile, attract an average audience of just 5.3 million sets of eyes, a fraction of the number who tuned in 30-40 years ago. If nobody’s watching, the brainwashing doesn’t take.

This death of ratings for the broadcast TV networks exacerbates the problems for the Democrat Party in its ongoing efforts to dumb down and brainwash the American public, since any brainwashing campaign requires attention from the subjects. At the same time we see these “news” shows on ABC, NBC and CBS passing away, we are also seeing the ongoing collapse of ratings at CNN and MSNBC, a collapse that has only accelerated since the issuance of the Mueller report exonerating President Trump.

A new Democrat “rising star” on the horizon? Remember the name “Michael Bennet,” because I suspect he’s about to become the next media darling “rising star” in the Democrat race. The senator from Colorado was on Fox News Sunday yesterday, another of the low-rated Sunday shows whose audience is collapsing as host Chris Wallace tilts further and further to the political left.

Watching the interview, I was struck by what an accomplished and convincing liar Bennet is. He brought back memories of Bob Kerrey’s famous quote that “Bill Clinton is an unusually good liar.” Bennet has that same ability to tell bald-faced lies and convince you he really believes his own BS, a trait also possessed by Pete Buttigieg. Remember, I told you way back in March that Mayor Pete was probably going to have his own “rising star” moment after a similar interview on Fox News Sunday.

But Mayor Pete’s star is now fading after his lost weekend back in South Bend a couple of weeks back, so the Democrat toadies in the fake news media will be looking for a new date. The pickings are getting pretty slim at this point, so they will be looking around for someone who does well on TV, someone who is articulate, and someone who toes the leftist, SJW party line that attracts clicks and retweets.

The other guy to watch right now is Julian Castro, who, in addition to being a very convincing liar (though not quite as convincing as Bennet) also happens to be an actual minority, so he checks off the identity politics box that is so appealing to shallow Democrats. But the media has been trying to give Castro a boost for weeks now with gobs of free air time, and it just hasn’t been taking for whatever reason.

The other reason to think Bennet may be about to have a little boomlet is fundraising. In the second quarter, Bennet led all of the second tier candidates, raising $2.8 million from April through June. Castro bragged about a surge in his own fundraising following the debate, but has refused to release actual 2nd quarter numbers thus far, which obviously means he isn’t too proud of them.

So, expect to see Michael Bennet a lot more on your TV screens in the coming few weeks. After all, these fawning fake reporters have to have some Democrat to make goo-goo eyes at and whisper sweet nothings to, and Mayor Pete just isn’t getting it done for them anymore.

That is all.

Does Anyone Care Enough About Joe Biden to Stage an Intervention?

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

We should not be at all surprised if, at some point between now and September, we see our nation’s Unfrozen Caveman Senator, Joe Biden, withdraw from race to become the Democrat Party’s 2020 presidential nominee due to some unspecified “health” reasons. Why? Watch this clip from an interview with Chris Cuomo:

This guy is simply not capable of enduring the long, grueling, race he faces. He proved in the first debate last week that he is unable to think quickly enough on his feet to adequately respond to an attack from just one of his 24 rivals for the nomination. That single attack has over the past week shaved 8-10 points off of his support level in the various polls of the race, cutting his previous 18-point lead down by doubt digits.

What’s going to happen in the next debate when, emboldened by the results produced by Kamala Harris’s 60 seconds as the attack dog, Fauxcahontas and Spartacus maybe even Julian Castro decide to join in the fun? What’s going to happen when half a dozen opponents team up to spend the full two hours treating this fumbling, bumbling gaffe machine to a death by a thousand cuts?

The Unfrozen Caveman Senator can’t even recall basic facts of history or cobble together complex thoughts required to respond to multiple topics at the same time. He says in that snippet that Russian aggression “would never have happened” on his and Barack Hussein Obama’s watch. He appears to have forgotten that Russia engaged in all manner of aggressive acts on their watch, and did so without consequence.

He apparently doesn’t remember Russia’s aggression against the Ukraine on his watch. He can’t recall Russia’s annexation of Crimea that took place on his watch. He appears to have forgotten about Russia’s entrance into Syria on his and Obama’s watch. He can’t seem to recall Russia’s constant prodding and provoking of NATO across Europe on his watch. He is in obvious denial that Russia’s alleged “attack” on our 2016 elections took place on his and Obama’s watch, and Obama chose to do nothing about it.

And even if he did recall those things, you get the clear feeling from watching that video that he would be utterly incapable of forming any sort of coherent set of thoughts about them if put on the spot to do so on live, national television.

Biden is 76 years old, soon to be 77, but he looks and sounds much older than that. His speech is often slurred; he frequently must pause in the middle of sentences to search for words; the scars from his many plastic surgeries are becoming increasingly prominent, defying the ability of makeup artists to cover them. He is clearly, unambiguously a man in the decline of his life.

Like many who find themselves such decline, he’s begun lashing out. A day after the interview clipped above, he was threatening to dig up dirt on his opponents and use it against them, saying “I mean, I get all this information about other people’s pasts, and what they’ve done and not done. And you know, I’m just not going to go there. If we keep doing that — I mean, we should be debating what we do from here.”

It has been clear for some time now that he will not be the party’s nominee in 2020. He is simply not up to that task, and frankly never was. He has always been a buffoon, a mean and frankly bigoted clown prone to embarrassing himself and those around him at he drop of a hat. He’s a guy who has never had any respect for people’s personal space – which is the nicest thing that can be said about his behavior – a guy with a long, documented history of telling racist, sexist and homophobic jokes in public events. You can’t put this guy in charge of anything really important and even hope for a positive outcome.

So why stay in? Perhaps the DNC has some reason for wanting it’s party’s creepy uncle to be out front serving as an attack dog on President Trump, but the utility of even that role drops every time a video like this one gets into the public domain, and Biden’s poll numbers drop another five points.

At this point, though, the people around Biden and those who actually care about him and his well-being need to be seriously thinking about finding some semi-dignified way for him to end his 46-year career in national public life. Because it is getting close to ending, one way or another.

He has three options here:

One is to go out the Jeb! Bush way, which is to just keep struggling on, getting embarrassed in debate after debate, playing out the string until next March or so, when the money finally runs completely out and a string of embarrassing primary and caucus defeats have come and gone;

The second is to go out in utter humiliation, after some giant breakdown takes place on live TV which makes it impossible for him to even continue struggling on;

The third is to face reality, to recognize the harsh fact that he is just not destined to be our nation’s president and never was, and to find some dignified reason for leaving the race. Perhaps get a friendly doctor to discover some previously hidden heart defect or other condition that precludes this man from going on with such a stressful endeavor.

That third, more dignified option only exists if there actually are people around the former Vice President who really do care about him. It’s fair to wonder if such people really do exist, because if they do, you have to question why they’ve allowed him to get to this point without having already staged an intervention.

If you’re out there, there’s no time like the present, folks.

That is all.

It Was a Perfect Independence Day

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

We celebrated America yesterday and loved every minute of it.:  We started the day by driving in our big, gas-guzzling SUV over to the neighborhood where our daughter and her family live, which is populated mainly by young families who have moved to our smallish town to take advantage of the wonderful schools here.

Rather than go over to Arlington or Fort Worth or other larger nearby cities to take in the long parades taking place there, the families in this neighborhood arrange a July 4 parade of their own each year. I timed it, and from start to finish, it lasted a little over a minute.

And it was perfect: A collection 8 or 10 golf carts, some amazingly-well restored classic cars, and a bunch of little kids dressed up in red, white, and blue, riding their bikes and scooters and even a couple of hover boards, all of which were decorated in red, white and blue as well. They were waving flags and saying “God bless America” and all the parents and grandparents clapped and laughed and waved flags of their own as the little parade passed by. Perfect. America.

My son and his family were joining us for dinner, so after the parade, the little wifey, my daughter and I wandered over to the local Target, where the clerks all appear to know my daughter by sight. Ok, just kidding, but she is in there a lot. A really lot, as are pretty much all the other young mothers with young kids in our little town. Trust me, this Target will never go out of business. It is a big box retail powerhouse.

There, we picked up a rack of ribs, some sausage, a can of pork and beans, and what I needed to whip up my famous macaroni salad, so that we could engage in the American tradition of pigging out on Independence Day. Oh, and cupcakes – we picked up some cool red, white, and blue cupcakes too, because DB don’t bake on July 4th.

Our own home is a little bit out in the country, up on top  of a hill. When we moved here a few years ago, we were warned that the area where we live has more fireworks stands per capita than anywhere else on earth. After witnessing three July 4ths and three New Year’s Eves here, I don’t doubt that that warning was absolutely true.

The 180-degree view from our back patio takes in downtown Fort Worth, 15 miles distant, half of Arlington, and the surrounding area. All told, there are probably about 1.3 million residents in that viewing area. We don’t do fireworks ourselves, and we are clearly outliers in our region. At times, it looked like pretty much everyone else was putting on their own fireworks displays last night. The booms started at about 8:00, as some of the neighbors started to get a little impatient, and went on until well past midnight.

It was glorious. It was perfect. It was America.

Meanwhile, in Washington, D.C., hundreds of thousands of patriotic Americans gathered to celebrate our nation’s declaration of independence from Great Britain 243 years ago on the National Mall. There, a sea of humanity stretched from the Lincoln Memorial all the way to the Washington Monument, half a mile distant, and beyond. There, they listened to patriotic music, singing unashamedly along with the songs, waving little flags of their own, watched a wonderful fireworks display, and were awed by several flyovers of military aircraft. They also heard President Donald Trump make a speech that celebrated the history and the future of our great nation, a speech that contained no political content. None.

In the days leading up to July 4, the President had been bashed endlessly by the same TV networks and cable channels who refused to televise this great patriotic celebration of our nation, for politicizing Independence Day. Which turned out to be just another pathetic lie perpetrated on the public by a politically-motivated media establishment that is run by left-wing political hacks.

Almost all of the Democrat presidential candidates spent the day in Iowa, holding political events, bashing the President, and politicizing the day. Because of course they did.

As those candidates awake this morning and view news coverage of the very non-political Celebration of America that took place in Washington, and the photos of that massive crowd of Americans, they would do well to recognized that there are tens of millions of Americans who would have loved to have been in the nation’s capital celebrating their country, too. And each and every one of those patriotic Americans are growing extremely weary of the anti-American crap the Democrats are pushing.

Those millions of Americans heard the following words from their President last night, and they loved these words and believe them:

“We will always be the people who defeated a tyrant, crossed a continent, harnessed science, took to the skies, and soared into the heavens. Because we will never forget that we are Americans and the future belongs to us. The future belongs to the brave, the strong, the proud and the free.

We are one people chasing one dream and one magnificent destiny. We all share the same heroes, the same home, the same heart, and we are all made by the same almighty God. From the banks of the Chesapeake to the cliffs of California, from the humming shores of the Great Lakes to the sand dunes of the Carolinas, from the fields of the heartland to the Everglades of Florida, the spirit of American independence will never fade, never fail, but will reign for ever and ever and ever.”

Those tens of millions of Americans who love these words and believe these words will all be voting to re-elect the President who spoke them.

God Bless America.

That is all.

Brace Yourselves, Because this Democrat Clown Show has Just Begun

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

Creepy Joe crashing, Mayor Pete plummeting, the Incredible Shrinking Beto, and more.:  The fallout in the various polls from last week’s Democrat debates has been fast, fierce and entirely predictable. The winners and losers of those debates were obvious, at least in terms of how the demented Democrat voter base would react. As usual, the fake news media and their “experts” and “analysts” had little clue about any of that.

Take Mayor Pete Buttigieg as a great example. All the “expert” talking heads at CNN and MSNBC and Fox ooohed and ahhhed about his simple admission that “I couldn’t get it done” when asked why he’s been unable to do a single damn thing to ease the seething racial tensions in South Bend during his seven long years as Mayor. All the smart people smiled and declared the fake news media’s latest Democrat date as one of the “clear winners” of the second night’s debate. The same pundits and “experts” all marveled again on Friday as Mayor Pete announced that his campaign raised about $24 million during the second quarter of the year, apparently forgetting that President Donald Trump raised that amount in the first 24 hours of his campaign.

We have now had four new polls come out in the wake of the debates (The Hill/HarrisX, Politico/Morning Consult, CNN and Quinnipiac), and Mayor Pete has lost ground from his prior 7% support level in each and every one of them. He’s at a pitiful 4% in the most current poll, from Quinnipiac, and hilariously receives … wait for it … ZERO percent support from Black voters.

Ouch.

Then there’s the Incredible Shrinking Beto, the fake news media’s former fave Democrat date, Irish Bob O’Rourke. Irish Bob was already sucking wind going into the debates, sitting at an average of about 4% support in the various polls. In the four polls released this week, he comes in at 4, 3, 2, and 1. The man is headed to 0 with a bullet.

The goofy and insufferable ex-Texas congressman compounded his horrific debate performance by going to Juarez, Mexico (hey, if you can’t attract support in America, try another country!) the next day and announcing that all these illegal aliens from central America have no choice but to get paid by Soros operatives to travel to the U.S. because of … wait for it … CLIMATE CHANGE. Because of course that’s what he said. Turns out not even most incredibly gullible Democrat voters who love to be lied to are buying into that particular whopper.

I’ve been telling y’all that the once-impressive polling lead held by America’s Unfrozen Caveman Senator would be gone by October. Well, after his wooden, confused and feeble debate performance, that timetable has sped up considerably. Unless some unforeseen sequence of events intervenes, Creepy Uncle Joe will be lucky to lead in any of these polls, real or fake, come late August. In the two most-current of those four polls, CNN and Quinnipiac, his support level that hovered in the mid-40s just two months ago is now down to 22%.

Indeed, after his terrible exchange with Kamala Harris during the debate, Biden finds himself virtually tied with the opportunistic California Senator in Quinnipiac, leading her by just 22% – 20%.  Yikes.

What about Bernie Sanders, you ask? Well, The Commie appears to be on the same path as Irish Bob, albeit with still-higher numbers. In the four polls in question, his numbers have come in at 19, 15, 14, and 13. The old Bolshevik apparently thought it would be a great idea to not prepare for this first debate, and just parrot the same answers he’d given during his debates with the Fainting Felon four years ago. Amazingly, Democrat voters seem to be growing weary of his tiresome Marxist messaging, something no one could have ever possibly predicted, including yours truly.  Go figure.

I also seem to have missed on my prediction that Fauxcahontas would get a boost from being seated at the kiddie table in the first debate with a bunch of people who all were polling at 4% or less. Her numbers are still hovering around 12%, which is right where her average was before the debate took place. I have long suspected that Lieawatha is going to have the same problem experienced by the Coughing Crook, i.e., that the more public exposure she gets, the less the public is going to like her. That dynamic could be kicking in here.

Looking around, it does not appear that any of the myriad other candidates in the race got any sort of real bounce out of the debates. The fake news media has now figured out that Julian Castro is the only actual, real Hispanic candidate and is now doing its best to give him a boost with gobs of free air time, but that is not resulting thus far in any noticeable movement in his numbers. Conversely, the media is still doing everything it can to ignore the only actual interesting people in the race – Tulsi Gabbard, Andrew Yang and Marianne Williamson – no doubt adhering to their marching orders from the DNC, which hates them all and wants them out of the race as soon as possible.

The Democrat Party, the party of “diversity,” cannot tolerate anything resembling real diversity of thought in its presidential race, after all.

At the end of the day, the control being exerted by the DNC, in concert with its toadies in the media, is why we see this race rapidly boiling down to what will become a long, tough slog involving Creepy Uncle Joe, The Commie, Kamala, and Fauxcahontas, with Mayor Pete and Cory Booker continuing to hang around yapping at everyone’s heels so long as their money holds out.

If you think this clown show you’ve witnessed thus far is unimpressive, well, you are not alone. You can bet that the Pantsuit Princess is sitting up in Chappaqua, grinning her evil grin as she sips her third chardonnay of the morning, day-dreaming about how she will waltz into next year’s hung convention and present herself as the Party’s savior yet again.

Stranger things have happened, and stranger things will happen again before this is all over.

It’s Time to Take Marianne Williamson Seriously. Sort of.

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

Responding to reader mail.:  Several readers have written to ask why I haven’t had anything to say about the U.S. Women’s Soccer team and this peroxided-blonde doofus making all the ruckus over in some foreign country where they are playing the World Cup boredom, er, soccer matches.

The answer to that is simple: I hate soccer. Well, let me revise that a little bit: I hate soccer when it is played by anyone over the age of 8. My granddaughter’s 6-year-old and under soccer games this Spring were totes awesome, mainly because the girls had no idea what they were doing, and no one had trained them to respect the “beauty” (which normal people translate to “tedious, mind-numbing, scoreless boredom”) of the game. So they just got out there and ran around and kicked the damn ball until they were utterly exhausted and their parents could then take them home and get some rest because their kids were too worn out to bug them about opening them a snak pak or taking them to Happy Fun Time Trampoline Town or something.

Soccer at that age is a fabulous spectator sport. But once those kids grow into adult bodies and incredibly boring soccer coaches teach them all the incredibly tedious aspects of how to bore fans until they become frustrated mobs who go out and start wars with neighboring countries, the game is a garbage dumpster fire. It then becomes a game populated by really good athletes who are so frustrated that no one really gives a damn about their dumpster fire game – like this peroxided chick whose name I don’t even know – that they end up lashing out in order to attract attention whenever they aren’t writhing on the turf faking an injury so that the other team gets a “yellow card” from one of the prissy game officials.

So that’s why I haven’t said anything about Peroxide Pauline or whatever her name actually is up until now, and why I don’t plan to have anything else to say about her in the future. So don’t ask me about her anymore.

All of which leads me to the real topic of the day: Marianne Williamson. Marianne Williamson probably never played a moment of soccer in her entire life, which goes a long way to helping to explain why she is an actual “interesting” person. Of course, I have to put quotes around that word, because being “interesting” is not always a positive thing, especially when one is interesting in a leftist, new-wavy, spiritual rock-worshiping, Stevie Nicks sort of way, as Ms. Williamson appears to be.

Most of the “experts,” i.e., pundits based in the D.C. thought bubble who all told you at various points in 2015-16 that Donald Trump a) would be out the race in two weeks, b)that Donald Trump could never possibly win the GOP nomination, and c) that the Pantsuit Princess was going win the general election in a landslide, just wrote Williamson’s first debate performance off as disastrous, labeled her campaign a “vanity project,” and predicted she’d be out of the race within a few weeks. Which could happen, but given the track record of the “experts” we should probably expect her to keep hanging around for awhile.

And be honest here: Wouldn’t you pay good money to see a debate between Marianne Williamson and Donald J. Trump? I mean, check this out:

That’s some pretty good moves for a 66-year-old. I couldn’t move like that when I was 16. And we already know President Trump’s got some moves from his 2015 appearance on Saturday Night Live:

We have simply got to get these two kids together. Think of it: They could begin by discussing Williamson’s grudge against New Zealand’s Prime Minister and debating the merits of nuking that country to settle the score. And why not? It’s no more ridiculous than debating the merits of abolishing the private health insurance of well over 100 million Americans and forcing those same Americans to pay for healthcare for the tens of millions of new illegal aliens who are going to flood into the country after Democrats succeed in decriminalizing illegal border crossings.

It would be no more absurd than debating whether or not to print 5 trillion dollars we do not have so we can “forgive” the student loans taken out by idiots so they could obtain worthless degrees in Tibetan Women’s Studies or Russian trans-gender Poetry; no more ridiculous than forcing a sitting U.S. President to debate whether or not to award abortion rights to people who do not possess female body parts; no more ludicrous than debating whether or not to abolish the miracle of air travel so we can replace it with rail, the transportation miracle of 1840; no more absurd than debating whether or not to spend 38 trillion dollars attempting to get rid of cow farts; no more mindless than debating whether or not our country should adopt a socialist philosophy that has caused so much human suffering and death everywhere it has been tried.

In other words, while everyone commented on how odd Williamson’s debate performance was and how strange her ideas are, when you compare those ideas to what the other 19 Democrat debaters were actually saying, she really isn’t an outlier here. Not at all. And hey, Donald Trump kind of stood out on the stage in the early GOP debates in 2015, too, and things worked out ok for him.

So let me repeat the call I made last Friday – and which others have picked up on since then – that all conservatives and Republicans out there go to marianne2020.com and give $1 to her campaign so that we can be sure to see her qualify for the next round of Democrat debates.

Let’s work hard to ensure the upcoming Democrat debates have at least some shred of diversity of thought in them, even if it is the kind of “diversity” brought by Ms. Williamson. Otherwise, those future debates will be every bit as boring and tedious as a U.S. Women’s soccer match.

That is all.

The Week in Review: America’s Daddy Wins Bigly Abroad While the Kids Misbehave Back Home

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

Here’s your Week in Review:  While the Democrats were back home frightening most Americans half to death with the insanity of their televised debates, and the Party’s terrorist wing, Antifa, was assaulting and sending a reporter to the hospital during a riot in Portland, Oregon, America’s Daddy was over in Japan and Korea making history and winning for America.

First came the meeting with Chinese President Xi Jinping, an obviously successful meeting that results in the re-start of U.S./China trade negotiations and which will set the stock markets afire come Monday. Here are the President’s tweets summarizing the meeting:

About 10 hours later, the President was in South Korea, toasting a key new trade deal with South Korean President Moon Jae-in.:

Seven hours after that, President Donald J. Trump became the first sitting U.S. president to set foot in North Korea, as he met Kim Jong Un at the demilitarized zone that has separated the two Koreas for more than 65 years.:

We cannot overestimate the symbolic importance of the meeting with Kim, or its interrelationship with President Trump’s just-concluded meeting with Xi Jinping. Because this meeting, timed as it was, very likely tells the world that Kim has been given the nod by Xi to negotiate a deal with the U.S. and the rest of the world to de-nuclearize the Korean peninsula. It also symbolically tells the world that both Trump and Xi believe they will soon successfully conclude a comprehensive trade deal between the two most powerful economies on earth.

You have to remember that North Korea has long been and remains a client state of China. There is no way on God’s green earth that Kim would have had the audacity to hold this symbolic meeting with a U.S. President had he not gotten the go-ahead from President Xi, and that go-ahead depended entirely on the outcome of Xi’s meeting with President Trump.

For all the fake media bluster about how Donald Trump is some sort of mad man, an out-of-control man-child in need of mental care, what we have seen this historic week is the nation’s Daddy traveling around the world doing deals to ensure the security and prosperity of his family while the spoiled children mis-behaved back home.

This is #WINNING, bigly, for America, and no, I will never get tired of it.

That is all.
