Stacey Abrams is Not a Thing; Stop Trying to Make Her a Thing

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

Seriously, Democrats, just stop it. Nobody outside of your little thought-free bubble wants any more of Georgia gubernatorial looooooser Stacey Abrams than we’ve already seen. Asking for more Stacey Abrams is like that great old SNL skit where Christopher Walken keeps asking for “more cowbell!” Note to Democrats: Ain’t nobody got a fever whose cure is more Stacey Abrams.

And please, somebody tell Samuel L. Jackson that for me, ok? Here was Mr. Jackson on Stephen Colbert’s show Monday night, expressing his disappointment with the current Democrat field of candidates, and longing for the Georgia loooooser to get into the race (at the 4:41 mark of this clip):

Just to remind everyone: Stacey Abrams is a rank mediocrity. She has never won an election above the level of state representative. She got her butt kicked in last year’s gubernatorial election despite massive amounts of out-of-state money coming into her campaign, despite Oprah Winfrey and Hillary Clinton and gobs of other party luminaries campaigning on her behalf, and despite a massive voter fraud effort in support of her cause.

Despite all of that, she managed to lose the race by 56,000 votes. Undeterred by reality, she has spent the 7 months since her defeat traveling around the country pretending she was somehow robbed, and getting fellow delusional liars like the Pantsuit Princess and Creepy Uncle Joe to support that false premise. The Democrat National Committee weighed in on her behalf by having her give the response to President Trump’s State of the Union Address, and she responded with a very pedestrian reciting of all the standard Democrat talking points like any good little goose-stepping soldier would.

Ok, she didn’t goose-step, but wouldn’t that be fun to watch? Is that mean? I don’t care.

The simple fact of the matter here is that Stacey Abrams is not a thing for 99% of ordinary Americans. No one out here in Flyover Country spends a moment of their day longing for the day when the Georgia looooser gets into the presidential race.

The ongoing effort by prominent Democrats to turn Abrams into a hot commodity reminds me of the similar effort during 2017-18 to do the same with Chelsea Clinton.

How did that effort work? Here we sit in the middle of 2019, and Chelsea Clinton is still not a thing, and never will be, and everyone appears to have given up on trying to make her a thing.

Just as we don’t need more cowbell, and we don’t need more Chelsea Clinton, we most certainly do not need more Stacey Abrams.

Stop trying to make her a thing.

That is all.

Quick, Someone Get These Democrats A Self-Awareness Coach!

The Afternoon Campaign Update
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

It’s such a busy day that I thought I’d do some quick takes on the passing scene…

My take on the Academy Awards – Every Oscar went to some guy or woman I’ve never heard of for a movie I haven’t seen and won’t see in the future.

Oh wait: I have heard of Spike Lee, but after his childish display of petulance last night, I wish I hadn’t.

The lack of self-awareness is strong in this one… – Chelsea Clinton complains that her grandmother did not have access to Planned Parenthood.

Oh, my. Which grandmother was she talking about?  Grandmother Rodham, or Grandmother Clint…er, Hubb…er, never mind.

Speaking of lack of self-awareness, it’s a damn shame her parents didn’t possess such foresight. – Alexandria “The Boss” Ocasio-Cortez now says that today’s parents should not have any more kids because of, like, climate change and stuff, and there’s, like, this sort of “scientific consensus” that their lives will be hard, or something.

“Our planet is going to hit disaster if we don’t turn this ship around and so it’s basically like, there’s a scientific consensus that the lives of children are going to be very difficult,” Ocasio-Cortez said while chopping up food in her kitchen during an Instagram live video. “And it does lead, I think, young people to have a legitimate question, you know, ‘Is it okay to still have children?'”

For the record, the “scientific consensus” is that children born today will experience a lower percentage of poverty, lower percentage of hunger and disease and deprivation, and a higher standard of living and longer life expectancy than all prior generations of human beings.

But “The Boss” has her dogmatic fantasies, and as I pointed out this morning, confusing her with things like facts and truth and reality is a fool’s errand.

Why, that’s exactly how tens of millions of Americans feel about Harry Reid! – Harry Reid to CNN this morning:  “Is there anything I think the President Trump is doing right? I just have trouble accepting him as a person and so frankly I don’t see anything he’s doing right.”

By the way, after President Trump punched back at Reid’s taunt, the fake news media bashed Trump because Harry Reid has cancer.

You seriously cannot make this stuff up. Can someone please get these Democrats a self-awareness coach, STAT?

“…now let me tell you about all of these overtly-socialist policy ideas I support, starting with the Green New Deal…” – Here’s what Kamala Harris told a CNN interviewer this morning: “I certainly think that we should all want that our leaders do not engage in name-calling because that’s really just a very low-level of discourse,” says KamalaHarris. “I’m a progressive Democrat. I am a Democrat, I’m a proud Democrat. I’m not a socialist.”  Yeah, sure, uh-huh, right, you betcha.

*sigh*

She’ll just take all that cash behind closed doors. – Also from the news-fakers at CNN – so take it for what it is worth – Fauxcahontas is now ordering her staffers to be quiet about taking money from wealthy donors: “Sen. Elizabeth Warren is laying down a new rule for her presidential campaign: No fundraisers, dinners, receptions or phone calls with wealthy donors.”

Gosh, Judging from that cap, Mr. Evers must be a white supremacist. I’ve been assured that’s a correct assumption by the entirety of our nation’s news media establishment.: 

 

That is all.

Harvey Weinstein Is Not A Joking Matter

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

  • Yesterday morning I told you that the Clinton Crime Family Foundation was not going to give up one thin dime of the quarter million it received from disgraced former Hollywood high muckety-muck Harvey Weinstein.  As if like clockwork, by the day’s end, a spokesman for the big slush fund tweeted that – guess what? – not one thin dime of Weistein’s hush money would be returned or given to a real charity.  And hey, if you’re the Clintons, why pretend to be anything other than the clawing, grasping, money-hoarding sleazebags everyone knows they are?  It’s gotten them this far, the fake news media will cover for them, and a week from now this will all be as forgotten in the national consciousness as the death of Vince Foster.
  • Speaking of Harvey Weinstein, it appears to me that the nation reached “Peak Weinstein” over this past weekend.  The clearest indicator of that reality is the edict in pop culture that you cannot joke about Harvey Weinstein and his crimes.  Un-funny late night TV host James Corden, with whom I am so unfamliar that I had to google his name to get the spelling right, found this out the hard way when he was lambasted in social media and later, the legacy media for telling a bunch of not funny Weinstein jokes during a gig hosting a charity event Saturday evening.
  • After Actor/Producer/Director Rose McGowan led the Twitter-based roasting of Corden, the comic issued a formal apology for his offending remarks.  Given that Ms. McGowan alleges that she was raped by Weinstein and then black-balled by his Hollywood sex offender support group that pervades Hollywood’s debased culture, it’s easy to see why she and other women who Weinstein abused during his 30-year reign of terror don’t think any of this is a laughing matter.  That seems pretty obvious, doesn’t it?
  • Welllllllllllllllll, not if you’re veteran sportscaster Al Michaels, apparently.  By the time Micheals went on the air Sunday night, the Corden controversy had been swirling for a good 20 hours, but he must’ve missed the NBC memo about the whole dust-up.  Or maybe NBC’s management didn’t sent out a memo, assuming their sportscasters wouldn’t be making on-air jokes about a big Hollywood muckety-muck’s travails, preferring instead to focus on things like maybe which team had the most attention-seeking players taking a knee for the national anthem.
  • But no, Michaels decided it would be really cool right in the middle of the game to compare the week the New York Giants had had to Weinstein’s week, to which his more-alert partner Chris Collinsworth responded with about six seconds of radio silence.  Yikes.  Naturally, Michaels then obviously got his memo from higher-ups at NBC, and soon after the broadcast ended he also issued a formal apology for telling a stupid joke about a subject that is not funny.
  • So, a note to all you comics and aspiring comics out there, longing to whip out your repertoire of Harvey Weinstein jokes:  Stop.  Just stop.  Nothing about what Harvey Weinstein did is funny.  Oh, there is tons of irony in this situation, as it applies to Hollywood’s larger depraved culture and to all the Democrat politicians – especially anyone named Clinton or Obama – who are desperate to find ways to keep Weinstein’s hush money, but none of this is funny.  Women were raped here, abused in heinous ways, their careers and lives destroyed by an out-of-control monster who everyone in Hollywood knew about for years and did nothing to stop him.
  • What the Weinstein scandal is, is tragic.  The most tragic aspect of it is that Weinstein is far from the only monster out there, and in fact most likely is just a representative of an overall culture of abuse that probably will be allowed to continue to exist as the fake news media, which is desperate to shift the public’s attention off of its Democrat benefactors who bathed in Weinstein’s money, moves on to other, faker news.
  • Thus, within a few weeks, it will most likely be business as usual for all the harassers, rapists and pedophiles who dominate Hollywood culture, and the average American with the attention span of a field mouse will go right back to paying six bucks for a 64 oz. Diet Coke while watching mediocre films at their local cineplex.
  • That, friends, is no joking matter.

Just another day in short attention span America.

That is all.

Why No Real Person Sympathizes With Mika

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

  • The fake news media spent all day Thursday and Friday portraying Morning Joe co-host Mika Brrzzzzeennsski (I have no idea how to spell that name and no desire to Google it) as a modern day combination of Joan of Arc and the Virgin Mary, a poor, hapless, helpless persecuted and defenseless woman who was being “bullied” by mean ol’ President Trump.  While this full court press for sympathy no doubt works with Mika’s fellow fake journalists and the upper class of New York City’s Upper East Side, it won’t work with any normal person who becomes acquainted with Mika’s background and personal behavior.
  • Why?  Well, think about it: Before she turned up as the co-host of Morning Joe, had you ever even heard of Mika Brrrzzzzzennsski?  No, of course not. She’s like the Chelsea Clinton of the fake news media, parlaying no talent, little brains and a famous last name into national visibility.  This is not an intrepid journalist who clawed her way to national visibility through hard work and diligence – that would be Sharyl Attkisson – Mika is a person born into great privilege, the daughter of Jimmy Carter’s National Security Adviser and pedigreed creature of the ruling class.
  • And Mika is not some poor, shrinking violet who never did anything to deserve a little presidential tweet storm:  She’s been the co-host of a national-TV talk show who has for the last six months spent three hours every morning slandering the President, his wife, his 11 year-old son, his other children and their wives at every possible opportunity.  Fox News put together a little 15 second clip of a few of her more recent insults, but the truth is that you could put together a feature-length film and still not cover all the nastiness Poor Miss Mika has tossed at the President and the First Family since he turned her and Joe away at Mar-a-Lago over New Year’s.  This presidential rejection obviously caused a bitterness that neither Mika nor her not-so-secret anymore boyfriend have ever gotten over.
  • So, while her fellow fake journalists and the subscriber base for the NYTimes will no doubt feel terrible for poor, poor Mika, no normal person who learns the truth of her background and behavior will waste a second of concern on her, nor should they.
  • Meanwhile, over at CNN, the ratings continue to tank.  Despite the failing network’s claim to have had its “highest-rated 2nd quarter ever” – an outright lie – it is running a poor third to Fox and MSNBC in both the total ratings and the vaunted 25-54 advertising demographic.  But surely a few more lectures from Brian Stelter and whining from Jim Acosta will turn it all around.
  • From our “Don’t Make Promises You Won’t Keep” file:  Houston congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee took to the floor of the House in outrage after the President’s tweet storm on Thursday, demanding that Mr. Trump resign immediately, and promising to “not vote for a single thing” until he does!  Ms. Jackson Lee continues to be the most unintentionally hilarious member of the House of Representatives.
  • Ms. Jackson Lee also made news by joining 23 other House Democrat lunatics in signing onto a bill that would propose to remove President Trump from office due to mental incapacity.  She even told an interviewer that congress has the power to do this under the 25th amendment.  Of course, congress has no such authority under the 25th amendment – only the Cabinet does – and of course this bill is just another example of how extreme leftist nitwits have come to dominate the Democrat Party.
  • Oh yeah, and finally, both the NYTimes and the Associated Press were forced to walk back multiple reports they issued over the last few months claiming that “17 intelligence agencies” had jointly agreed there was evidence of Russian interference in the 2016 elections.  Turns out that only 4 of the 17 U.S. intelligence agencies agreed with that assessment, and the truth most likely is that it was really just one low-level clerk sitting in a broom-closet office who made that “finding.”

Just another day in fake news media America.

That is all.

Today’s Campaign Update (Because The Campaign Never Ends) – 4.19.2017

  • Say it ain’t so, Joe!:  Your author is officially in mourning this morning, because the CalExit movement is dead.  Yes, friends, the noble effort to free our country from the state that sends an unending stream of nitwits to infest the U.S. Congress is no more.  The plug was pulled by organizers on Monday because it was revealed that the founder of the movement, some guy named Louis Marinelli, actually lives in…wait for it…RUSSIA!!!!!  I swear I don’t make this stuff up.  If I could make stuff like this up, I would be a fabulously wealthy novelist.
  • A mind is a terrible thing to lose.:  Speaking of nitwit members of congress from the Golden State, California congresswoman Maxine Waters told a fake interviewer with MSNBC that she had never called for the impeachment of President Donald Trump.  That statement came just a day after she had promised an audience during a speech that she will do everything she can to impeach the President, and just moments after she had issued a Tweet that said “The President is a liar, his actions are contemptible, & I’m going to fight everyday until he’s impeached.”  Again, I swear I don’t make this stuff up.
  • I mean, like, it paid for my million dollar wedding, so it’s like, totally awesome.:  Chelsea Clinton, the dimwitted daughter of The Most Corrupt Woman in America, told an interviewer that people “just don’t understand” how fabulous the Clinton Foundation really is.  She also said she is “definitely not interested” in running for political office, so she’s got that traditional Clinton bald-faced lying tactic down to a T.
  • This either does or doesn’t explain a lot.:  Netflix announced that, from 2015 through early this year, its users had spent more than 500 million hours streaming films starring Adam Sandler.  Every political observer from all corners of the ideological spectrum believes this explains what is wrong with those on the other side.
  • Yes, it’s a side benefit of mass starvation.:  A British former Olympian and candidate for Parliament told an interviewer that regardless of what else one thinks about North Korea, they really have got a “handle” on that whole obesity thing.  He later apologized on Twitter.
  • Can’t wait to see what Maxine Waters does with this one.:  Don’t look now, but the Democrat Party has obviously obtained polling data that indicates they can gain votes from Millenials by cussing.  And so we are now treated to the spectacle of Democrat members of congress and party leaders going around the country cussing at their audiences.  Yesterday, Democrat National Committee Chairman Tom Perez told his audience that “Republicans don’t give a sh*t about people,” and “[Republicans] call it a skinny budget, I call it a sh*tty budget.” God help us if the Democrats ever obtain polling data that says they can attract pervert voters by campaigning in the nude.  Nobody needs to see Chuck Schumer implementing that particular tactic.

Just another day in Democrat ****ing America.

That is all.

Today’s Campaign Update (Because The Campaign Never Ends) – 3.23.2017

  • Now you know why his statement was so carefully worded.:  I pointed out in Tuesday’s update that our bi-polar FBI Director’s “denial” of “wiretapping” allegations contained in President Trump’s tweets was very specific and extremely carefully worded to specifically only “deny” the exact wording contained in the tweets.  Thus, Mr. Comey’s statement only “denied” that he was in possession of any evidence that “Obama” had “wire-tapped” “Trump Tower.”  Nothing more.   Yesterday, House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes (R-CA) demonstrated why, revealing that he had uncovered information proving that then-President-elect Trump and his transition team were indeed spied upon by the Obama Administration, between election day and the inauguration.  Mr. Comey obviously showed up to that hearing on Monday determined to reveal only information that might be harmful to the President, and to withhold anything helpful to him.
  • Because some folks just need firing.:  If Mr. Comey had any credibility prior to Monday, it is now gone.  A new poll released on Wednesday by Harvard-Harris shows that the nation’s highest-ranking law enforcement officer is viewed favorably by just 17% of registered voters, an approval rating so low that it rivals that of the fake news media.  The poll finds that Mr. Comey is viewed favorably by only 12% of Democrats, and a still-pitiful 26% of Republicans.  Given that the poll’s sample was taken prior to Monday’s hearing, it’s a safe bet that ranking among Republicans will have fallen off precipitously by now.  Familiarity breeds contempt, and the American public has become entirely too familiar with its FBI Director over the last year and a half.  Enough.
  • Breaking:  Ol’ Bug Eyes is upset.  Film at 11.:  The Intel Committee’s ranking Democrat, the bug-eyed Adam Schiff, did his best to put lipstick on his party’s latest smelly pig, tossing out an array of hastily-prepared talking points for the fake media to parrot, but the pig perseveres nonetheless.  We know now that we had an out-going presidential administration surveiling an incoming presidential transition team, and there is no way you can pretty that fact up.  We also now know that the FBI is refusing to cooperate with the Intel Committee’s effort to investigate this matter.  So it is what it is, and what it is is a big ol’ fat pig.  And we can bet there is more yet to come on this front.
  • Because that’s what the Fake News Media does.:  The fake reporters, fake analysts, and fake anchors across the fake news media naturally did their best to toss cold water on Rep. Nunes’ allegations, but no matter how hard they try to support their Democrat benefactors, the fake media cannot escape the reality that all Nunes’ information does is confirm the accuracy of this report from the Jan. 19 edition of the NY Times.  The key paragraph of that report is here:

The F.B.I. is leading the investigations, aided by the National Security Agency, the C.I.A. and the Treasury Department’s financial crimes unit. The investigators have accelerated their efforts in recent weeks but have found no conclusive evidence of wrongdoing, the officials said. One official said intelligence reports based on some of the wiretapped communications had been provided to the White House.

  • Remember, that was Jan. 19, and the “White House” that passage refers to was the Obama White House.  That report by the NY Times was re-published by hundreds of its fellow fake news media outlets, including CNN, MSNBC, all three major networks, and pretty much every major daily newspaper in this country.  Thus, despite their whole Claude Rains “I am shocked, shocked!” acts today, they all have already admitted that Trump’s tweets were true.  They’re hoping you will all forget that reality, and honestly, most Democrats either will or already have.
  • Still don’t think this is a serious problem for Democrats?:  You don’t have to believe me – I give you Bob Woodward, on Wednesday’s Bill O’Reilly program: “If (what Nunes says) is true, the unmasking of U.S. civilians would be a gross violation…a felony.”  He goes on:  “You had people in the Obama administration passing around highly classified gossip.”  Mr. Woodward is as DC establishment as DC establishment gets, and does not have a history of making such assertions lightly.  Ask Richard Nixon.
  • Was it poverty?  Poor parenting?  All those Gilligan’s Island re-runs?  The heartbreak of psoriasis?:  The perpetrator of the Islamic terrorist attack in London yesterday has been identified as well-known ‘hate-preacher’ Abu Izzadeen.  The fake reporters, fake analysts and fake anchors throughout the fake news media will now spend weeks in a vain attempt to figure out what this poor man’s motivation could have possibly been.  CNN will never figure it all out.  Because that’s what the fake news media does.
  • Chelsea Clinton just keeps on winning, for no discernible reason.:  Great news, everybody!  Chelsea Clinton, the achievement-devoid, 37 year-old daughter of The Most Corrupt Couple in America, is now going to receive a Lifetime Achievement Award, and nobody really knows why!  Isn’t that great?  Aren’t you all thrilled?  Wait…what?  Yes, Sweet, Sweet Chelsea, fresh off the heels of being given a lucrative seat on Expedia’s Board of Directors, despite an utter lack of any accomplishment or skillset for that job, is now being honored by The Lifetime Network for her lifetime achievement in the field of…ummmm… wellllllll….er,….oh yeah, “public service”.  See, in between getting paid about $600k a few years back by NBC for doing about three TV interviews – including one very memorable gabfest with the Geico Gekko – and having the unsuspecting donors to her family’s fake “Foundation” foot the bill for her million dollar wedding to a now-failed hedge fund hustler, Chelsea apparently spent about ten minutes on something called “The Alliance For A Healthier Generation”, although no one knew anything about that until now.  Funny how that works, but only if your name is Clinton.
  • Some things never change.:  Meanwhile, every Democrat on the Senate Judiciary Committee continued to make asses of themselves, twisting themselves into pretzels of illogic in their fruitless questioning of Supreme Court Nominee Judge John Gorsuch.  Gorsuch has proved to be the most capable nominee any GOP president has put forth in modern times, answering each and every idiotic question so completely, likeably and unassailably that his pathetic opponents are left with no means of countering them.  If there aren’t enough Democrats who are still conscientious enough to break a filibuster against this nomination, then the Party is well and truly doomed to die.  There is literally no legitimate grounds to oppose this man’s nomination.  None.

Today’s Campaign Update (Because The Campaign Never Ends) – 3.20.2017

  • And don’t even get them started about Belle…:  Social Justice Warriors all across the interwebs tossed a fit over the weekend about the trailer for the new Wonder Woman flick.  Their latest source of perpetual outrage derives from the ghastly fact that Wonder Woman – gasp! – has no armpit hair!  Oh, the humanity!  I swear I don’t make this stuff up.
  • Note to self:  Time to start using Trivago…:  Based on no merit whatsoever, Expedia announced late last week that the newest member of its Board of Directors is…wait for it…wait for it…Chelsea Clinton!  The company’s management gave no justification for this appointment – which will net the talent-less younger Clinton $45k in cash and $250k in stock each year – other than presumably Chelsea’s famous last name.  For the uninitiated, corporations normally seek out professionals who have demonstrated expertise in the business world for seats on their Boards, because the role of the directors is to ensure the company’s management isn’t making god-awful decisions, like naming Chelsea Clinton to sit on the board of directors.
  • Progressive “logic” at work:  The fake news outlet The Hill published a fake op/ed by fake opinionists Lisa Graves and Arn Pearson titled, “Trump may not last a year, his Supreme Court shouldn’t last generations.”  The main thesis of the piece is that Barack Obama had higher poll ratings when he nominated Merrick Garland to fill the Supreme Court’s vacant seat than Donald Trump enjoys today; thus, Neil Gorsuch should not be confirmed.  I’m not kidding -read the piece here.
  • Ok, all you progressive suckers get your wallets out, ’cause Mama needs money!:  The Most Corrupt Woman In America announced on Saturday that she is “ready to come out of the woods” in order to “help bring people together.”  This is Clinton code speak for “our fake foundation has fallen apart now that we don’t have any influence to sell, so I’ve got to find a new racket, and I can’t do that sitting in my living room in Chappaqua.”
  • And speaking of suckers…:  …how about all those saps who worked so hard for Bernie Sanders’ campaign last year, under the thought that he was an advocate for “the little guy”?  Since making a deal with The Most Corrupt Woman to cancel his presidential campaign, Bernie has cashed in admirably.  Over the weekend, he closed on a nice $600k beach house – which the fake news media uniformly referred to as “modest” – which means he now owns no fewer than three homes, something that only a handful of his Bolshevik heroes managed to achieve.
  • He also has pro-Constitution leanings, which are totally disqualifying.:  Circa News reports that Democrats on the Senate Judiciary Committee “plan to grill” Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch “on his pro-corporate leanings” when his confirmation hearing begins this morning.  The Democrats’ (as is always the case) faulty reasoning is that “He expresses a lot of empathy and sympathy for the less powerful, but when it comes time to rule, when the chips are down, far too often he sides with the powerful few,” according to Cryin’ Chuckie Schumer.  See, in the mind of the perpetually aggrieved Democrats, the job of a federal judge is not to interpret the law based on the text of statutes and the Constitution, it is to issue rulings base on the relative needs of the plaintiff vs. the defendant.  Which explains why an Obama-appointed federal judge in Hawaii issued a stay on President Trump’s travel ban based not on the law, but on the judge’s concern that someone might have their feelings hurt.  This is American liberalism in a nutshell.

Just another day in Trump Derangement Syndrome America.

That is all.
