Stacey Abrams Takes TDS to a New Level

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

Dobroye utro, druz’ya! – Please excuse me, I’m just brushing up on my Russian.

Good morning, friends! – Every time I think the rhetoric from prominent Democrats in our beautiful motherland, er, United States of America cannot possibly become more absurdly demented than it already is, one of them goes right out and proves me wrong.

Enter Georgia gubernatorial loser and Legend in Her Own Mind Stacey Abrams, who went full Russkie yesterday while speaking to an event called National Security Action Forum put on by some leftist organization that doesn’t actually give a tinker’s damn about national security. After being told by despicable former Obama advisor (ok, the “despicable” is redundant there) Ben Rhodes that her rather pedestrian response to this year’s State of the Union Address was “the single best speech” we’ve heard in the past two years, the Georgia also-ran went off on a riff about the Democrat fantasy hobgoblin of “voter supression,” and it turned epic.

Epic in an utterly and pitifully demented and absurd way, that is. As she rambled on, blaming her favorite bogeyman for her 55,000 vote loss despite her having gotten every vote from every dead person in the state of Georgia, she said the situation with “voter suppression” is so dire that it will cause us all to be speaking the Mother Tongue in barely a decade:

Abrams calls voter suppression a national security threat to the nation. “If we do not secure our democracy in 2020 … we will be having a very different conversation, potentially in Russian, in 2030.”

Really and truly, how do you even respond to something that silly? Byron York found a way:

That is true, but here’s the thing: Your Democrat friends pretty much have all bought into this sort of raging dementia and take it very, very seriously.

You know what the real threat to our nation is? Lies spread by Democrats like Abrams and their toadies in the fake news media. The real threat to our nation is that objective truth has no meaning anymore to fully 33% of the country and 98% of our national news media. The real threat to our nation is that the report from a 2 year-long Witch Hunt can fully exonerate the President and the Democrats and their media toadies act like it never happened.

The real threat to our nation is that a pedestrian loser and pathological liar like Stacey Abrams can be broadly considered by one of our two major political parties as a perfectly fine vice presidential running mate for its looming near-octogenarian presidential candidate, who himself is a pathological liar who has been comically wrong about literally every major issue for half a century.

Understand that this woman who thinks we’ll all be speaking Russian in a decade if Donald Trump is re-elected decided not to run for the Georgia senate seat in 2020 because she’s already made a backroom deal with Joe Biden to be his running mate, which means she could well be one very frail heartbeat away from the presidency come January, 2021.

If a Republican – any Republican – had said in 2012 what Abrams said on Friday, he’d have been mercilessly panned and ridiculed by every media outlet and late-night television host for weeks, and deservedly so. But let a barely-coherent Democrat loser say it, and all the media puppet heads just nod in unison like an array of bobble-head dolls.

And the 33% of our citizens who like to call themselves Democrats nod right along with them.

Sheep.

That is all.

Let Mueller Testify – He’ll Have to Answer Questions From Republicans, Too

Today’s Campaign Update, Part II

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Jabba the Nads has a case of the sads… – Go to this link to Watch Jabba the Nadler pout about his inability thus far to bully Gestapo Chief…er…Special Counsel Robert Mueller into testifying before the raging clown car that is the House Judiciary Committee.

Gosh, why do you think Mueller, who has been all too happy to do the bidding of the Democrat Party in its never-ending efforts to remove President Donald Trump from office for two solid years now might be reluctant to come offer testimony before Jabba’s Democrat-dominated Committee now?

Oh, hey, maybe it’s because of this story about how congressional staffers now suspect that Mueller and his band of merry Nazi thugs probably hired both Christopher Steele and Fusion GPS to help with their Witch Hunt and probably also to participate in the drafting of the final Mueller Report.

Excerpt:

Special Counsel Robert Mueller spent more than $732,000 on outside contractors, including private investigators and researchers, records show, but his office refuses to say who they were. While it’s not unusual for special government offices to outsource for services such as computer support, Mueller also hired contractors to compile “investigative reports” and other “information.”

The arrangement has led congressional investigators, government watchdog groups and others to speculate that the private investigators and researchers who worked for the special counsel’s office might have included Christopher Steele and Fusion GPS, the private research firm that hired Steele to produce the Russia collusion dossier for the Clinton campaign.

They suspect the dossier creators may have been involved in Mueller’s operation, and even had a hand in his final report, because the special counsel sent his team to London to meet with Steele within a few months of taking over the Russia collusion investigation in 2017. Also, Mueller’s lead prosecutor, Andrew Weissmann, had shared information he received from Fusion with the media.

Raising additional suspicions, Mueller’s report recycles the general allegations leveled in the dossier. And taking a page from earlier surveillance-warrant applications in the Russia investigation, it cites as supporting evidence several articles—including one by Yahoo! News—that used Steele and Fusion as sources.

Obviously, Mueller would never have to worry about any Democrat member of the committee asking him to answer questions under oath about an inconvenient subject like that, but guess what? There are Republicans on that committee, too! Go figure.

Those GOP members include such Witch Hunt hawks as Ohio’s Jim Jordan, Texas’s Louie Gohmert, Florida’s Matt Gaetz, and Texas’s John Ratcliffe. You can be certain sure that each and every one of those men would force Mueller to offer an unqualified yea or nay on that specific question. An answer of ‘yea’ would destroy what little credibility Mueller and his evil minions have left and possibly subject them all to criminal inquiry. An answer of ‘nay’ could subject Mueller to future criminal prosecution should this allegation ultimately be proved to be true.

And here’s the thing: Somewhere among the still-classified records of the Mueller Witch Hunt are accounting records, including a full accounting of how that $732,000 was spent. At least, there had better be. If such an accounting does not exist, then Mueller and his minions have committed a fraud on the public and the federal government.

But assuming such a full and complete accounting does exist, then Mueller would answer this question falsely under dire personal jeopardy.

Another excerpt from that story:

Washington-based Judicial Watch suspects Mueller’s office may have farmed out work to the private Washington research firm Fusion GPS or its subcontractor Steele, both of whom were paid by the Clinton camp during the 2016 presidential election. Several law enforcement and Hill sources who spoke with RCI also believe Steele and Fusion GPS were deputized in the investigation.

The government watchdog group has requested that the Justice Department turn over the contracting records, along with all budget requests Mueller submitted to the attorney general during his nearly two-year investigation. It’s also requested all communications between the Special Counsel’s Office and the private contractors it used. A Judicial Watch spokesman said its Freedom of Information Act request is pending. [Emphasis added]

So here’s the other thing: Ultimately, these records are going to be made public, either by the DOJ through the normal course of business, by the court in the Judicial Watch case discussed above, or even by President Trump through his upcoming process of declassifying all the relevant underlying documents that DOJ and the FBI have to this point illegitimately hidden from the public.

If you’re Robert Mueller sitting in his living room easy chair today, would you want to go testify under oath to Jabba’s committee?

Yeah, neither would I.

Some levity before you go…

Watch William Barr troll Jabba and his fellow congressional Democrats here:

And here:

This is not a worried man.

That is all.

The Democrats Won’t Stop the Madness Until They’re Stopped

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

Several times a week, I get some variation of this question: “When are the Democrats going to stop all of this madness?” – The simple answer, of course, is that they aren’t. The behavior of the leaders of the Democrat Party and their toadies in the fake news media is only going to become increasingly radical and unhinged until they are stopped.

Many had thought – hoped – that their despicable daily behavior would calm down somewhat after the Mueller Witch Hunt had shut down and exonerated President Donald Trump. That obviously didn’t happen, and the Democrats and their media toadies did what they always do: Double-down on deception.

Attorney General William Barr released a 95% un-redacted version of the Mueller Report, and the Democrats screamed “cover-up!” Then he made 99% of the Report available to all Democrat members of congress, and they screamed “cover-up!” Then he spent a total now of more than 20 hours testifying before various congressional committees about it, and the Democrats in the House decided to hold him in contempt for telling the truth and refusing to break the law.

If this doesn’t strike you as normal behavior, that’s because it is decidedly abnormal behavior.

As we’ve said many times before here at the Campaign Update, nothing the Democrats do is normal or organic. Everything they do and say in public is pre-planned, coordinated with their media toadies, and highly scripted, all designed to reflect their narrative of the day. This is why Rush Limbaugh is able to cobble together those hilarious montage clips of dozens of Democrats/talking heads/fake reporters using exactly the same words on some given issue 2-3 times every week. He could do it every day if his staff had the time.

Yesterday’s narrative, for example, was “we’re in a constitutional crisis,” which happens to be true since the Democrats, led by San Fran Nan and Jabba the Nadler, have worked very hard over the past couple of months to create such a crisis out of whole cloth. After his committee held its kangaroo court vote to hold Barr in “contempt of congress” Wednesday afternoon, Nadler promptly rushed to the nearest camera to declare that “we are in a constitutional crisis.”

As if on cue – because it was on cue – every Democrat spokesman on TV, every fake host on CNN and MSNBC, every news anchor on the major networks and every political writer at the major fake newspapers began using those exact words in all of their reporting. This narrative continued through Thursday as well, along with the incredibly stupid non-story about Trump’s losing a bunch of money back in the 1980s/early 1990s, a story he told himself in his book “The Art of the Comeback” and on his TV show “The Apprentice.”

To understand why they behave the way they do, you must understand the Democrat hive-mindset. Simply put, Democrats believe they are entitled to political power. They believe they are smarter than you are, they believe they are more moral and caring and compassionate than you are, and because they believe those things, they also believe they have the right to tell you how to live your lives.

Just a decade ago, they thought they had consolidated that power and the ability to dictate everything you do every day on a permanent basis. They’d just elected America’s Worst Mistake, Barack Hussein Obama, and empowered him with massive majority control of both houses of congress. They had shoved through a massive fake ‘stimulus’ package designed to nothing but expand the scope and scale of an array of federal regulatory agencies, had their EPA working on regulating your drainage ditches and backyard ponds, had their congress extending those 6-month unemployment benefits to a near-permanent entitlement, and were working on a cap and trade system on carbon that would bankrupt whatever was left of Obama’s economy and a bill to nationalize the nation’s healthcare system.

All was bliss and kisses in Democrat fantasy land. It was 2009, and the narrative then, repeated endlessly by all the talking heads and fake reporters, was that the Democrats now had created a “permanent majority” in our country, and America was thus entering its “new normal.”

And here’s the thing that has the Democrat so perpetually enraged today: They believed their own bullshit. (Pardon my language.) They do that all the time, actually – see the whole “Russia Collusion” fantasy play as the latest grand example.

But they are all so enraged today – and become more enraged with each passing hour – because they still believe that bullshit. They still believe they are the chosen ones, the ones to dictate to all you little people out there in Flyover Country, the ones who are entitled to power.

That’s the mindset that led Barack Obama and James Comey and John Brennan and Peter Strzok and Andrew McCabe and Sally Yates and all manner of other high Obama officials to engage in a plot to fix the 2016 elections and then to try and fail to execute a coup d’etat on American soil. They did all of that because they really, truly did believe they were entitled to do it, and that the Pantsuit Princess was entitled to the presidency.

They created Antifa, a violent terrorist organization, in response to Trump’s election because they believe they are entitled to power. They created the Mueller Witch Hunt because they believe they are entitled to power. They’ve created this constitutional crisis because they believe they are entitled to power.

Between today and November 2020, they will continued to ramp up the insanity and violence because they believe they are entitled to power. And after Donald Trump is re-elected, the Democrats and their media toadies will still continue to ramp up the insanity.

Until someone stops them. Until the people who committed all of these bad acts start being prosecuted and going to prison. A lot of them. And if that never happens, if the day never comes when they know they will be subject to prosecution for committing these seditious, treasonous acts against our country, the Democrats and their media toadies will keep ramping up the insanity until they have whipped our nation into another civil war.

These are not people who can be reasoned with, because they are not rational people. They must be defeated and they must be stopped. If William Barr and the Department of Justice are not up to this task, then God help us.

That is all.

A Millennial Mom’s Manifesto

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

As the father of a pair of great Millennial children myself, I know that, despite all the bad press it gets, this generation is no different from mine or any other previous generation. Millennials are, by and large, good people and patriotic Americans who love this country. But like the Baby Boomers of the ’60s and ’70s, and Generations X and Y of the ’80s and ’90s, the public image painted on Millenials by our pop culture and corrupt news media is dominated by a small but very loud minority, currently personified most obviously by Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.

This week I received the piece below from a Millennial Mom who I’ve known for years. She and her husband have been friends of ours since shortly after they graduated from college. I’ve looked on as they have raised a wonderful family, advanced in their professional lives, become outstanding members of their community and just generally become great Americans. I’m proud to know them.

This is National Small Business Week, and this Mom created and runs a very successful small business of her own. She wrote this piece in honor of this special week, directing it to Rep. Ocasio-Cortez and her radical leftist bag of policies.

I thought it was so well-done that I asked if I could reprint it here, and she agreed. I bet you enjoy it as much as I did.

 

A Millennial Mom’s Manifesto

Dear Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez,

I’m writing to you to tell you that I respect you, and I disagree with you. I think you are confident, brave, fearless and beautiful. I love your dancing! Can I join in?! I admire your tenacity and bravado. We are both Millennials who love to wear red lipstick. And I think if I knew you, we might be friends.

Here’s where you and I differ: I am a young mother with three sons who has lived a life where you have to rise to the top to succeed. I joined the largest university in the country (and very liberal one at that) as a young, conservative woman who didn’t know exactly where she fit in. Yet, I assumed athletic and academic leadership positions quickly. I found my voice against the grain. I paid off my student loans  rather than hoping the government might forgive them.

When I graduated, I got a big sales job with a Fortune 500 company. I won awards and saved the money I made. I quickly realized that a strong, confrontational woman wasn’t perceived the same as men.

Did I whine and gripe? No! I moved to a more suitable company that respected women and treated them accordingly.

Have I experienced working in a man’s world? YES! But I don’t regret it. I embraced all my strengths in that world. Because even though there are a few weak & disrespectful men, there are many more strong men who respect women and know their value. I respect them, and I love what they stand for.

Now- onto your political ideals and values….

Fast forward a few years-I had three sons in four years. I sacrificed my career for my family so I could raise my boys. My husband started his masters’ degree when my third boy  was born. I’ve supported ALL of my kids & my household- all while teaching Bible studies, mentoring young girls and starting a small business. Three years ago, I bought a food truck and then expanded it to two locations. We live in a small town in Texas (which is larger than Pittsburgh), and we won customer voted awards in our second year.

If your “Green New Deal” or any of your socialist ideals get pushed through, I will close my business. Guess what happened when I opened my business? I started paying HUGE taxes- to the county, to the state, and to the Federal Government. You will lose that. I know you don’t care about my small business. But what about the 16 high school and college kids I employ every year? I’ve given many of them their first jobs and have taught them lessons in work, life and leadership. Sure, if I shut down my business, they can work somewhere else, but this is my impact on the community. I want to show my employees love and hospitality so that it extends to the 15,000 or more customers we have. I want to make money to keep us afloat, but more importantly, I want to have a business that supports its community and the amazing families in it.

Your government style will shut me down in one day- just like Obama’s ideas shut down many industries.

You’ve never run a business or a household. You don’t understand the complex nature of staying afloat in business or family. You don’t understand that a deficit can ruin you. Small business can’t survive in your world.

As far as running a family, you can’t print money. You have to live within your means and if you don’t, you’re in trouble. It’s the same in family budgeting as small business budgeting. You like locally-run businesses? Then don’t put such high demands on us and let our customers deem us worthy or unworthy – not from you in Washington. Your policies will shut down my small business and many others that are bigger and more important than mine. The town, city and state governments will suffer. They will lose the money we pay them to be in business. This is how it really works. You go run a small business and a family and then give me a genuine rebuttal.

There are a couple of things left I’d like to address… I have a large SUV and you want to take that away. It’s the only thing that helps me transport my large family and all my business supplies. I need this car to run my family and my business, but your climate “projections” are more important than my need and my choice?!? That is not what I call freedom. You tell my business to make the “sacrifice” for our climate, but so many others than just mine will suffer and shut down. I care about our planet and I do everything in my power to treat it with respect.

Let’s talk about race. I’m not a racist – not even close. I don’t see race when I see people. I see all people made in God’s image who deserve love, acceptance and respect equally. I hire every race and gender, and it does not matter what color my customers are.

But I do believe racism is real, and we need to call it out whenever it happens. It happens in Republicans and Democrats alike and all need to be confronted. I will aggressively confront it when I see it, and I will fight against injustice. But here’s one thing- don’t judge my blonde, blue eyed boys either. They didn’t choose their race or their gender or their coloring. They are innocent now, and I’m constantly teaching them about equality, respect, and love. But my boys aren’t bad just because they are white and male. They are also made in God’s image. Treat them with respect too.

Also, I love immigrants. On my street, we just had a party for my neighbor from Portugal who finalized his American citizenship. On my street alone, we have neighbors from Venezuela, Mexico, New Zealand, Korea, and even Louisiana! They all did it legally and expect others to do it the lawful, Constitutional way.

Last thing, masculinity is not toxic. Men who abuse women are toxic. And we’ve all experienced them. It’s awful. But us women have power too. We have lots of powers men don’t have and must use them responsibly also.

Toxic feminists are a thing, too. Let’s respect all people and not demonize the other gender. We need each other- in families, in business, in leadership and in life. Let’s celebrate each gender for what they contribute and call out each side when they cross the line to abuse.

I’m thankful for you and all our politicians who are bold enough to go into public life instead of private life. I have decided not to put my kids through the scrutiny that would involve. But I think you have the hutzpah and the power to affect small businesses, women in leadership, children, capitalism, and freedom for the good. I would like you to consider what freedoms you want to take away from this woman- me- a wife, mother, daughter, leader, and business owner to satisfy your social ideals. Consider my position, the small business owner’s position. We need freedom and less government interference. If we fail, it should be because we didn’t do all we could do to succeed instead of an overbearing government who shut us down because we could not bear the rules, regulations and taxes.

Thank you for sacrificing, for serving and for listening.

Always,

A millennial mother, wife and small business owner.

PS: You’re not getting my guns.

Led by Nadler, Despicable House Democrats Hold the Nation Hostage

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

Strategery, Democrat style. – So, first you create a Constitutional crisis by taking a vote of the House Judiciary Committee to hold the Attorney General of the United States in contempt over an absurd claim that he “lied” to the Committee a month ago (he didn’t), and that he won’t release a full, unredacted version of the Mueller Report to congress so the Democrats can leak parts of it to their pals at the New York Times (he can’t do that without committing a felony himself).

After you’ve done that, you send Jabba the Nadler out to tell the breathless, fawning fake news media that the country is in a Constitutional crisis:

Oh, wait, wrong clip. Here you go:

See how that works?  Odd, huh?

Let’s all remember that every step of what has happened with Jabba The Nadler’s committee this year was all pre-planned way back in November, just days after the election. That was when Sr. Editor at The Federalist Mollie Hemingway happened to be sitting across the aisle on an Amtrak train from Jabba, and overheard him having a loud telephone conversation in which he bragged about his and Nancy Pelosi’s and Adam Schiff’s plans to do everything you’ve seen taking place this year. She wrote this prescient piece on November 7, yet all of her “colleagues” in the fake news media continue to pretend this is all taking place organically, because the Democrats just can’t help doing what they’re doing because of the Orange Man Bad in the White House.

None of this is organic. Never forget that everything today’s Democrats do is Kabuki theater designed to deceive their shamefully dimwitted and uninformed voter base. They believe most Americans are hopelessly dense, clueless and uninformed of actual facts, and believe they can just lie to them with impunity as a means of obtaining and maintaining political power. Sadly, they are often correct.

It’s also important to remember these things as well:

  • Barr has already release about 95% of the Mueller Report to the public – Democrats say this is not enough;
  • Barr has already made 98% of the Mueller Report available for Democrat members of congress to view in a secure room without the ability to make copies of it that they could leak to the press. Not one Democrat has taken advantage of viewing it in the 3 weeks that it’s been available;
  • Barr legally cannot make 100% available to the public because some of the material in the Report is protected grand jury information. He knows if he allows skunks and snakes like Jabba and Adam Schiff and Eric Swallwell to have the full report, the full report will appear on the front page of the New York Times and the Washington Post the next morning;
  • The courts have consistently held that grand jury information must be withheld from the public in order to protect the rights of persons who offered testimony but were not pursued by said grand juries. In pursuing this information for the purpose of leaking it to the fake news media, congressional Democrats are actively attempting to harm U.S. citizens who are innocent of any crime.

That’s the reality of this silly situation, which has been intentionally and completely artificially constructed out of whole cloth by despicable congressional Democrats and their even more-despicable buddies in the news media.

Of course, by going down this particular road they have essentially left President Donald Trump with no choice but to exercise his right to executive privilege over not just the Mueller Report, but over any and all documents related to it. This is a right the President could have exercised throughout the abusive Mueller Witch Hunt, but chose not to do so in the name of cooperating with the Chief of the American Gestapo.

That the President now feels the need to exercise that right as it relates to the House of Representatives tells us exactly how abusive the despicable Democrats have become in their desperate effort to smear Attorney General William Barr.

One final reminder: The Democrats and their media toadies are desperate to smear Barr in the public consciousness because Barr has repeatedly promised to get to the bottom of the Obama Administration’s massive spying activities targeted at the Trump Campaign throughout 2016. They all know that if he succeeds in that quest, people are going to prison.

So this is not just a fight for raw political power: For many of these despicable people, it is a fight for survival. These are the reasons the Democrat Party is basically holding our nation hostage.

It is a fight they must lose if our nation is to maintain a system of real justice.

That is all.

Watch Nancy Pelosi Talk Gibberish at a Washington Post Event

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

Regular readers know I like to say that if Democrats did not exist, the most creative fiction writer alive today could never in a million years make them up. No one personifies this principle of American life more starkly than our own favorite Speaker of the Gibberish, er, of the House, San Fran Nan Pelosi.

The latest example of our mush-mouthed Speaker talking slurring gibberish in public came Wednesday morning at some event hosted by the Democrat Party toadies at the Washington Post. Pelosi was doing her best to make some point about the supposed dastardly deeds of President Donald Trump, but all she succeeded in doing was making a point about her own creeping dementia and illiteracy. Here’s a clip, courtesy of Ryan Saavedra at Daily Wire (Transcript follows below).:

For those of you who still like to read and those of you who watched that clip and have no earthly idea what Mz. Mushmouth just tried to say, I have performed the immense personal service of transcribing her remarks verbatim. Here you go.:

“And ah have sshed the prezdent is goading us into … wants to goad us into impeachment because that..he knows w,uh, do I that (inhale) uh, muh, that’s uh…not a good thing for the counwro I know maybe he knows that but…he knows that I think that, let’s put it that way. Huh knows that I think that. But the fff, fff, the point is, is that every single day…whether it’s obstruction, obstruction, obstruction, obstruction of having, you know, people come to the table with facts…ugnoring subpoenas and oist…every single day the prezdent is making a case…he’s make…he’s becoming self-impeachable in terms of some of the things he is doing.”

Clear as mud, right? Right. Even the extremely Democrat-friendly hacks over at Slate haven’t got he slightest clue what she meant by this statement.

Now, laugh all you want at the Speaker’s inability to form complete sentences or express cogent thoughts without a script (or even with one, for that matter), but think about this: This incoherent apparent half-wit is two heartbeats away from becoming president.

Still laughing now? Yes?

Ok, so am I.

That is all.

Trump’s Tax Returns Show the Mark of a Great Businessman

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

Hey, y’all, Donald Trump lost a lot of money in the 1980s! – That’s the big “bomb” the news-fakers at the New York Times dropped on President Donald Trump Tuesday night, as the paper somehow got hold of a decade of Trump’s tax returns. In all, the returns show that Trump’s real estate and casino businesses lost over a billion dollars during the 10-year period.

Well, for tax purposes, that is. Anyone familiar with how the tax code works, i.e., nobody who works for the NYTimes, would know that tax losses do not necessarily reflect actual business losses.  The President himself addressed this idiotic move by the Times on his Twitter account this morning:

As a businessman, Donald Trump has stated repeatedly and unfailingly anytime this stupid subject has been raised by our craven fake media that he took full advantage of the U.S. tax code in the conduct of his business ventures. The demented nutjobs at the NYTimes – whose own business, by the way, also takes full advantage of the U.S. tax code – wants you to think that this means Trump is somehow a really bad guy who was stealing from you personally.

But you know what this really makes Trump? A smart businessman.

Here’s why: Tax “write-offs” exist in the code for a reason. They exist because at some point in time the U.S. congress felt it would be advantageous to the U.S. economy to incentivize certain behaviors in the business world.

Anyone with any understanding of the history of the 1980s – which again would obviously exclude anyone working for the despicable NYTimes – would know that Ronald Reagan came into office in 1981 in the midst of a major recession created by Jimmy Carter and convinced congress to pass a major tax reform designed to boost economic growth.

The new tax code (which I understand because I was an accountant doing tax work in the 1980s) that came out of that reform effort included various incentives, like the old ACRS system of accelerated depreciation, designed to increase investment of new capital in the building and manufacturing of hard assets. You know, stuff like high rise office buildings and fancy high-rise condo developments in oh, say, Manhattan.

Like me, many of my readers live in Texas. Those of us over the age of, say, 50 will remember that the skylines of Houston and Dallas were completely transformed during the 1980s, with new high-rise buildings like the ones Donald Trump was building and buying and selling in Manhattan also being built in those Texas cities by major developers like Trammel Crow.

See, building big buildings like that and manufacturing all manner of hard goods benefits the economy by creating … wait for it, Democrats because I know you don’t know the answer here … JOBS. Oh, and that other thing all Democrats hate with a passion, ECONOMIC GROWTH.

How did that new tax code work out for America? Well – listen closely all you economic ignoramuses in the Democrat Party and the fake news media – it created the LONGEST AND BIGGEST ECONOMIC EXPANSION IN MODERN HISTORY.

Oh, hey, guess which individual’s business empire was in a better position than anyone else in America in 1981 to take full advantage of the incentives offered by this handy new tax code?

That would be a guy named Donald John Trump.

And that’s really all there is to know about this particular stupid non-story.

That is all.

Watch Nancy Pelosi Promise to Ignore the Results of the 2020 Elections

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

Following up on my piece from yesterday afternoon (Despicable Dems Setting the Stage for Rejecting 2020 Election Results), House Speaker took her rhetoric to borderline seditionist lengths Tuesday morning.

Here’s the clip – a transcript will follow:

As a courtesy to those of you who still like to read stuff, I have transcribed the Speaker’s exact remarks here [emphasis added]:

==========

To…uh… we have to make sure … this will sound political but…we have to make sure that the Constitution wins the next presidential election. We can’t be worrying about, well, how long is this going to take or that…it will take as long as it does. And we will press the case so that in the “court of public opinion” …people will know what is right.

But we cannot accept a second term…for Donald Trump…if we are going to be faithful to our democracy and to the Constitution of the United States. And that is just a fact.

So we have to operate on many fronts. We have to operate in the congress, in the courts and in the court of public opinion. And we must win the next election.

==========

Like I said, borderline sedition. Maybe outright.

Let’s unpack the emphasized comments:

  • “make sure that the Constitution wins” is a veiled attack on the Electoral College, which, according to the Constitution, is the sole determinant of U.S. presidential elections. Pelosi is implying that Donald Trump – who was a landslide winner in the EC in 2016 – was somehow not the constitutional winner of that election.
  • “How long is this going to take” refers to the Democrat Party plan to filed hundreds of lawsuits challenging the results of the 2020 elections, not only in the presidential race, but in all congressional, gubernatorial and local races that are remotely close. The party’s plan is to declare them all “illegitimate” and challenge them in the courts. The longer it takes, the better as far as they are concerned.
  • “But we cannot accept a second term…for Donald Trump” – you need me to explain what that means? Really? C’mon.
  • “We have to operate in the congress” refers to the ongoing kangaroo court investigations being conducted by multiple House committees under Pelosi’s guidance. Important: We must also remember that as Speaker, Pelosi has a role in certifying the results of the 2020 election. This is also a bit of foreshadowing of the role she plans to play. 
  • “we have to operate in the courts” obviously refers to the Party’s plans to challenge the election results in any race they lose by fairly narrow margins in 2020.

This all thinly-veiled code language aimed at the Democrat Party’s mind-numbed base its supporters in the fake news media. Stacy Abrams running around for months after a 55,000 vote loss claiming to be the “real” Governor of Georgia is just a trial balloon for taking every Democrat loser down that same road come next November.

We talk a lot about the absolute need to defeat today’s demented Democrats. Nancy Pelosi is making it crystal clear to anyone paying attention that defeating her and her evil minions at the ballot box will only be a first step in a long and miserable slog that will last for many months after Election Day 2020.

Get ready.

That is all.

Crazy Uncle Joe Sucks the Air Out of the Democrat Room in 3 New Polls

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

How weak is the 20-person Democrat field? – It’s so weak that a 76 year-old, miserable two-time loser in presidential politics who has been wrong about literally every major issue facing this nation over the last half-century is sucking all the air out of the room. That’s weak.

Three new polls released yesterday show Biden blowing away the rest of the Democrat field and getting close to eating up half the support among the Party’s mind-numbed voter base: He comes in at 44% support in the Harvard-Harris poll , 46% in the Hill-HarrisX online poll and 40% in the new poll from Morning Consult. The Commie lags far behind in 2nd place with just 14% support in both of the first two polls, and a little stronger 19% in Morning Consult. None of the 18 other candidates registers even in double digits in any of the polls.

That’s how weak the 20-person Democrat field is.  Yikes.

Now, these are just three polls and as I pointed out in yesterday’s Campaign Update, Biden was always destined to have some really good polling numbers coming out of the gate in his carefully-scripted campaign launch. He is a two-term vice president, a guy who spent more than 30 years in the U.S. Senate, and the most known quantity out of all of the candidates in the field. He had lead the polls consistently before he even declared his candidacy, and that lead was inevitably going to grow once he finally jumped in. So that was all a given.

But, as unreliable as we all know that political polls are these days, there is no denying that a) three polls with fairly consistent results represents something of a trend, and b) some of the numbers posted by the other, supposedly “major” candidates in this race are stunningly weak.

The best example is the numbers put up by former darling of the fake news media, Irish Bob O’Rourke, who registers at 3, 3, and 5 in these polls, respectively, despite his very strong, if fading, fundraising numbers. It turns out that even mindless Democrat base voters want something more from a candidate – even one who just 3 months ago was touted by our fake news media as the “next Kennedy” – than jumping up on tables, waving arms and spouting meaningless platitudes.  Go figure.

But what about the wymyn-folks? Well, the Party’s two most prominent wymyn, Faucahontas and Willie Brown’s Paramour, are doing better than Irish Bob, but that’s not saying much given that you can triple his numbers and still be mired in single-digits. The Fake Indian is averaging just 6.7% in these three polls, while Kamala Harris, who many “experts” were touting as the most likely Party nominee as recently as March, is doing a little better with an average of 7.3%.

But hey, at least they’re both out-pacing Irish Bob, and looky here – they’re both doing better than the fake news media’s latest Prom Date, Mayor Pete! Pete Buttigieg registers at 2, 8, and 6 in these three polls, for a not-very-impressive average of just 5.3%, despite having received hundreds of millions of dollars worth of fawning, free media coverage over the past two months.

Who else is even worth mentioning here? Well, there’s the “other” African American candidate, Cory Booker, who all the smart people in D.C. and the fake media were telling us last year might become the “next Barack Obama”, God help us. But that was all before his “I am Spartacus” moment in the Kavanaugh hearings last October. In these three polls, Sen. Spartacus comes in at 3, 3, and 3. Hey, at least he’s consistent.

Amy Klobuchar, who registers at 2, 0, and 2 is the only other candidate who even manages to come in at above 1% support in any of these polls. Kirsten Gillibrand’s candidacy is such a joke that the folks at RealClearPolitics have stopped even listing her in their average of polls table.  My goodness.

Now, some observations:

  • First, the field is very crowded right now and that means that support is scattered among the competing candidates. As the field narrows, voters will consolidate their support among those who remain in the race.
  • There is no doubt, for example, that the other Commies in the race, like Fauxcahontas and Mayor Pete, are sucking support away from the real Commie, Bernie Sanders. The problem the Commie is going to have is that Mayor Pete, as the only openly gay candidate in the race, is likely to have some real staying power in the race, since the media will be afraid to report anything negative about him.
  • Fauxcahontas is also likely to have some staying power, since she is the most shameless liar in this liar-filled field. We all know how mindless Democrat base voters love to be lied to. So the Commie is in real trouble here.
  • Kamala Harris needs to do something, anything to set herself apart from the crowd, but her main problem is that she is a terrible campaigner and a singularly dislikeable individual. As a person who literally got ahead by sleeping with a powerful benefactor, her backstory is very unappealing, and her off-putting personality doesn’t help anything.
  • I still think Andrew Yang will have his moment in the sun in this race. Once the debates begin – and he’s already raised enough money to be on the stage – he will stand out from the rest of this moribund, unappealing field because he is so much more intelligent than any of his opponents.
  • Everybody else who is currently in this race is wasting their time and money, even those who, like Irish Bob, believe they might make an appealing running mate for either of the two near-octogenarians at the top of the polls. Biden’s already focused on Georgia gubernatorial loser Stacey Abrams – who apparently feels she’s entitled  to the slot – and any other potential nominee is more likely to look outside of a bunch of just-defeated candidates for their running mate.

Again, I continue to believe that this week is the best polling week Biden will have in this race and that someone else will ultimately be the Democrat nominee. But at this point, given the amazing weakness of the rest of the field, I wouldn’t hazard a guess who that eventual nominee might be.

Honestly, I don’t really care. President Donald Trump will wipe the floor with any of these weak sisters, brothers and who-knows-what.

That is all.
