Halloween on Twitter: Political Mayhem, Fake News Zombies and Belly Laughs

The Evening Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

One of my Twitter followers sent me a private message today asking “how can you vote for some of these Republicans?” Seriously? You have to ask me that?

My answer was very simple: “Because they aren’t Democrats.” That was several hours ago, and I haven’t heard back from this person. Frankly, I expect she will un-follow me by the end of the day.

But look, why would I or any other thinking person ever vote for another Democrat? It’s a serious question. This is a political party that has over the last three years done everything it can to normalize the most reprehensible anti-American behaviors.

From shooting up Republican softball practices to accosting septuagenarians and their wives in restaurants to Antifa goons beating up people on the streets to CNN talk show hosts dog-whistling approval of potential presidential assassins to rounding up women to try to destroy the family and life of a Supreme Court nominee, if they think it might gain them even a momentary political advantage, Democrats are for it no matter how dangerous, destructive, depraved and despicable it might be.

I’m going to vote for that?  Really?  No, thanks.

Nor am I going to cast a vote to take this country back to the overregulated, moribund economy we had prior to November 9, 2016. I’m not going to vote to lop 25% off of the Dow Jones Industrial Average and 2% off of our economic growth rate. I’m not going to vote to put our country back into an irresponsible, un-American agreement with the Mullahs in Iran, or to re-engage us in a Paris “Climate” deal that was really nothing but a global wealth redistribution scheme targeting the American middle class.

Sorry, I’m not down with any of that, and I never will be.

And don’t try to convince me that I can vote for some particular Democrat for congress because he/she would get to Washington and be an “independent voice for Texas” or whatever other nonsense Democrats like Irish Bob O’Rourke are using in their campaign ads.  Give me a break here.  Irish Bob would get to Washington and become the third senator from California.  He’d be Chuck Schumer’s most reliable vote in the U.S. Senate.

Likewise, any Democrat who gets elected to the House of Representatives will be so bullied around by Nancy Pelosi within their first 2 weeks in D.C. that they’ll have literally forgotten where their congressional district even is, much less do anything effective to represent it.

Anyway, that was the bad part of Twitter today, but there was all sorts of fun on that platform as well.  Here follows a selection of the best examples of the day.

 

It’s a great question, and I’m glad Sara Carter asked it:

Speaking of great questions, Mollie Hemingway asks another one here…:

 

Hey, remember when Netflix signed that deal with the Obamas that allows them to produce series for its streaming platform?  Well, guess who their first target is going to be…:

And speaking of things nobody could have possibly seen coming…:

Desperate losing Sen. Claire McCaskill explains who she meant when she claimed in an ad to not be “one of those crazy Democrats,” and the crazy Democrat she specified responds in unambiguous and profane terms.:

Yikes. That particular crazy Democrat has some bite.

Speaking of moves being made by desperate losing Democrats, I give you Ed Donnelly of Indiana.:

There is literally no content too low and despicable for CNN to spew out onto its platform.:

By the way, Mr. Lemon’s boyfriend is white, and radical.

The Alexandria Ocasio Cortez parody account responds, but if you didn’t know it was a parody, you’d totally believe it was something she’d actually said:

 

No day on Twitter could ever be complete without making fun of the Creepy Porn Lawyer.:

Finally, while CNN and MSNBC were misleading their viewers into thinking President Donald Trump was greeted by nothing but protesters and haters on his trip to Pittsburgh to visit with Synagogue shooting survivors, you had to be on Twitter to see the truth:

Just another day of highs, lows and belly laughs on Twitter.

That is all.

The Week in Review: A Week of Democrat/Media Narrative Epic Fails

The Campaign Update Week in Review

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Every week in American politics is different.  They all have their ebbs and flows, their dramas, their comedies, their pratfalls and their tragedies.

Typically, they all have their own narratives, the overriding major story or stories that our fake news media conspire with the Democrat Party to push into the public domain for political advantage.  Sometimes, a single narrative dominates the entire week – as happened a few weeks ago with the whole Kavanaugh drama.  Most of them end up being ineffective, although a few end up having legs, and at the end of most weeks you can typically look back and identify one that served as the overriding Democrat/media theme for that 7-day period.

But not this week.  This week is different.  This week, there was no single overriding narrative that any normal American paid special attention to.

The Khashoggi murder at the Saudi consulate in Turkey came closest – it lasted the whole week, and the media obsessed over it for sure.  But at the end of the day, very few normal Americans actually cared what happened to this radical Islamic, Muslim Brotherhood-pushing opinion writer.  It was an utterly failed narrative, but because Khashoggi was a fellow fake journalist, the U.S. media couldn’t stop pushing it.

But hey, whether the narratives are effective or not, the one thing we know for sure about our hated fake news media is that they will keep on pushing them on behalf of their Democrat masters, because they’ve been doing it for so long now, they don’t know how to do anything else.

 

And now, without further ado, let’s go to the Week in Review (see what I did there?):

It was the week that Democrats hired a bunch of crisis actors to form a “migrant caravan” that amazingly consists of about 80% military-age males (see photo below) to make its way up through Honduras, Guatemala and Mexico to conveniently arrive at the Rio Grande a few days before Election Day.  Thanks to the intervention of President Donald Trump, the “caravan” was halted at Mexico’s southern border.  As of this morning, half of the original 4,000 are on their way back to Honduras and the other half are in a Mexican detention camp.

 

It was the week that the fake news media finally began admitting what the Campaign Update has been telling you for several weeks, which is that Special Counsel Robert Mueller is systematically closing up his shop.  The newsfakers at Politico ran a piece on Friday titled “Mueller Report PSA:  Prepare for Disappointment”.  The subhead reads “And be forewarned that the special counsel’s findings may never be made public.”  Campaign Update readers knew all of that a week ago.

Speaking of Democrat disappointment, it was the week that the fake news media and pollsters who have been pushing their “Blue Wave” fantasy for a year suddenly began getting cold feet and speculating about what will happen if the Republicans maintain control of both houses of congress again?  Go figure.

It was the week that the Pantsuit Princess let it be known she is contemplating running yet again in 2020 and many Democrat Party leaders contemplated slitting their own wrists.

It was the week that our fake news media demonstrated that it cares infinitely more about the murder of an obscure Saudi national opinion writer than it cared about the following killings of actual Americans:

– Kate Steinle

– Seth Rich

– Benghazi

– Vince Foster

– Mary Mahoney

– James McDougal

– Ed Willey

– Ron Brown

– Mollie Tibbetts

…and this list could go on and on and on.  And these fake “journalists” wonder why so many millions of Americans detest them.

It was the week that Mitch McConnell and his wife were accosted by a Democrat thug in a cafe in his hometown of Louisville, Kentucky.  Rather than just sit and watch like a bunch of Washington D.C. slugs, McConnell’s fellow diners got pissed and ran the thug out of the place.  That’s what happens when you try to pull crap like this out here in Flyover Country, boys.  If you pull a stunt like that in Texas, you’ll probably end up in an emergency room.

It was the week when Elizabeth Warren became so enraged with President Trump and his constant “Pocahontas” taunts about her fake Indian heritage that she took a damn DNA test and proved herself to be 1/1,024th “right”.  The hilarity that ensued with meme after meme after meme on social media was comedic gold, I tell ya, gold!

It was the week that Christine Blasey Ford disappeared completely from the public conversation, as the Democrat Party has no further use for her.  The same thing will happen to all those crisis actors down in Mexico at midnight on Election Day.

Speaking of disappearing Democrat tools, it was also the week that the Creepy Porn Lawyer disappeared from the public space.  Presumably all those dimwits at CNN and MSNBC who gave money to Stormy Daniels’ GoFundMe account are a little ticked that their money will now actually go to reimburse President Trump for his legal expenses after the porn star and her creepy lawyer got poured out of court last week.

It was the week that oily Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein had several hours to spend being interviewed by the Wall Street Journal, but couldn’t find the time to offer testimony to congress.  When Rosenstein finally agreed to testify next week, he demanded the testimony take place in secret in a secure location, and with only 2 Republicans and 2 Democrats present.

It was the week that a husband and wife pair of nitwits in Katy, Texas decided it would be a peachy idea to paint a huge, 20′ x 20′ “Beto” sign on their front lawn, and then expressed great confusion about why their neighborhood HOA is irritated with them.  I swear I don’t make this stuff up.

Finally, it was the week when the President of the United States of America sent out this hilarious message on his Twitter account:

Funny, but oh, so true.

That is all.

Trump Speaks the Truth, Media Goes Nuts, Dog Bites Man

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

When the President speaks the truth, the fake news media gets a huge case of the vapors.:  President Donald Trump (I never tire of typing those three glorious words) had this to say at the formal swearing-in ceremony for new Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh last night:

“On behalf of our nation, I want to apologize to Brett and the entire Kavanaugh family for the terrible pain and suffering you have been forced to endure,” Trump began. “Those who step forward to serve our country deserve a fair and dignified evaluation, not a campaign of political and personal destruction based on lies and deception. What happened to the Kavanaugh family violates every notion of fairness, decency, and due process. In our country, a man or a woman must always be presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty.”

Naturally, given that none of our fake news outlets in the national #fakenews establishment media reported on any of the myriad outright lies told by Christine Ford in her smear of Justice Kavanaugh, they all cranked up their outrage machines immediately after the President made his remarks.  They must keep up the narrative they’ve established, after all.  Some things never change.

This is a learning moment.  Many of you who don’t really “get” Donald Trump wonder why he felt the need to make what you perceive to be such “combative” remarks last night, or why he chose to go after Ford’s obvious lying at his rally event in Tennessee last week.  Well, to understand why, just observe how the fake news media reacted to it, and how they uniformly covered for Ms. Ford throughout the entire weeks-long process.

Readers of the Campaign Update are extremely smart and oh-so-attractive people, the literal cream at the top of our society’s milkshake.  So you are exceedingly well-informed.  But millions of other Americans are not so lucky.  Tens of millions of our brethren and sistren (if we are allowed to even say that anymore under our new zillion-fake gender rules our fake media have helped establish) are not so lucky.  To the extent they consume “news”, these Americans get it from fake places like ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN, the New York Times, the Washington Post and other big city newspapers who today get 95% of their content from one of those other outlets or the very biased Associated Press.

Thus, before the President went off on Ms. Ford last week, those millions of Americans had never heard a thing about the massive holes in her testimony or the outright lies she leveled against a man who had been through 6 prior exhaustive FBI background checks without so much as a jaywalking incident showing up on his record.  There were still millions of people treading water in that pool of fake media-fed ignorance last night.

So the President had two opportunities during which he was speaking live to at least some portion of the American public, and he took those opportunities to tell the truth to the American people.  Which of course is an act that always scandalizes a fake news media establishment whose overriding goal in life is to avoid the truth at all costs in favor of the Democrat Party’s preferred narrative.

Gosh, nobody could’ve seen this one coming…oh, wait…:

I’ve gotten quite a few notes again in the past week asking what I’m thinking about the outcome of the midterms.  Honestly, my outlook hasn’t changed since January:  The Democrats will gain 10-15 net seats in the House, but not get to a majority, and the Republicans will gain 4-5 net seats in the Senate.  And right on cue, the same pollsters who were chanting “blue wave, blue wave, blue wave” back in January are now starting to sound the alarm to their favored Democrats that gosh, maybe, just maybe, that might not all be coming about for them.

If this pattern sounds familiar, I refer you back to the 2016 elections, in which we saw the exact same pattern take place.

Because, as we discussed here a few weeks back, neither the media or the pollsters have figured out exactly who the “Trump voters” are, and have real no desire to do so.

 

Oh, hey, isn’t that the guy the fake news media all told us was getting fired two weeks ago? – Why yes, yes, it was.  It was Rod Rosenstein, our perpetually oily Deputy Attorney General, not only still in his job but climbing up the steps to board Air Force One along with Chief of Staff John Kelly.  That’s right – the very same John Kelly to whom your fake news media assured you Rosenstein was headed over to the White House to hand his formal resignation (in order to spare himself the indignity of being fired) two weeks ago today.

At an impromptu press conference earlier in the day, President Trump appeared to put to rest any thought that Rosenstein was about to be fired, telling reporters “We actually get along. I’m not making any changes. You’d be the first to know.”

So, what’s going on here?  Why is the President seemingly protecting the guy who conspired with James Comey to set their big buddy Robert Mueller up as Special Counsel last year?  I think the obvious answer is that the President now has Rosenstein right where he wants him.

Think about it:  What has been happening the last few weeks?  The systematic winding down of the Mueller investigation.  Why is that happening?  Well, the obvious answer is that, other than a tax fraud case from a decade ago against Paul Manafort and several process crimes that have nothing to do with the Special Counsel’s supposed focus on the Democrat/media-invented “Russia Collusion” fantasy, there is no “there” there.

But there is a second big answer that is becoming increasingly apparent with each passing day:  Rosenstein and Mueller really, really, really, REALLY do not want the FISA-related documents the President ordered to be declassified three weeks ago to be made public.  I keep reading some conservative writers speculating that Rosenstein is opposing the declassification effort to “protect the institutions”, i.e., the DOJ and the FBI, which would no doubt be embarrassed by the full revelation of the crimes that were being committed in obtaining those fraudulent FISA warrants to spy on the Trump Campaign, the Trump Transition Team, and the Trump presidency.

But at this point it seems more and more obvious that Rosenstein isn’t just protecting his institutions, he’s protecting himself.  After all, he affixed his signature to at least one of those four FISA warrants, a reality that keeps somehow getting lost in the “reporting” that goes on in our fake news media.

At this point, after having the first 21 months of his Administration being held hostage to the dark cloud of all these false allegations, I think President Trump would be perfectly happy to keep Rosenstein in place until Mueller has wrapped up his Spanish Inquisition-style “investigation”, and wait until the mid-term elections have come and gone before taking final action to clean out the participants in the anti-Trump cabal who remain at DOJ and the FBI even today.

So, when the President says that he and Rosenstein “get along” just fine these days, you should believe him.  Because when Donald Trump says he’s getting along just fine with someone, that means he’s getting along with that person on his own terms.

You don’t have to believe me on that – you can go read his book.

That is all.

OMG, Y’all, Taylor Swift is all, Like, Political and Stuff Now

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

OMG, you guys, Taylor’s, like, terrified of Marsha Blackburn and stuff.:  Pop singer Taylor Swift came out of the political closet on Sunday, endorsing two Democrats running for governor and U.S. senator in Tennessee.  Which is just, like, totally shocking and even maybe, like, surprising or something, you know?  I mean, reeeeaaaalllly.

Perhaps noting the irony of endorsing two old white guys when a woman is running in the Senate race on the GOP side, Swift’s publicists wrote this tidy quote for her to recite:  “As much as I have in the past and would like to continue voting for women in office, I cannot support Marsha Blackburn,” Swift wrote, elaborating that “her voting record in Congress appalls and terrifies me.”

Because, you know, Marsha Blackburn is for all that scary stuff like letting babies be born alive, protecting the second amendment to the constitution and trying to exert some semblance of control on federal spending.  Scary stuff like that.

OMG, Taylor’s, like, so totally intellectual and like, deep and stuff, you guys.  No word yet if all the SJWs and other leftist freaks to whom she was appealing will now attack her for the fact that the Dem she endorsed for Governor, the cravenly dishonest Phil Bredeson, said on Friday that he would have voted to confirm Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court (Pro tip:  that’s a lie), but it seems likely.

*sigh*

Well, we can scratch her off the list of potential Supreme Court nominees. – Right after her fake news channel spent weeks telling us all that Brett Kavanaugh can’t possibly serve on the Supreme Court because he drank too much in high school, CNN’s Taylor Swift-like fake reporter Caitlin Collins was revealed to have sent some decidedly homophoby-sounding tweets when she was in college.

Of course, everyone at CNN circled the wagons around one of their own, abandoning the puritanish stance they’d taken on Kavanaugh and informing their viewers that Ms. Collins’ unfortunate Twittering was just the hijinks of a poor college girl who didn’t know any better and she’s all, like, changed and other touchy-feely stuff now.

For her part, Collins apologized in a Tweet, because of course she did:

Hey, maybe she can get Taylor Swift to endorse her apology.  That seems to carry a lot of weight with the “in” crowd.

This was not his finest hour. – Speaking of SJWs and other leftist freaks, Former Astronaut Scott Kelly issued an apology to all of them who flooded his Twitter feed with nasty, obscene messages after Kelly had quoted and praised… wait for it…Winston Churchill in a tweet earlier in the day.  I swear I don’t make this stuff up.:

For the record, were it not for Sir Winston’s incredible leadership and courage during World War II, we’d all be speaking German and shouting “sieg heil!” to some Nazi dictator every day.  But, of course, with the nitwits in the American left now starting to emulate the tactics employed by the Nazis during the 1930s, the ravages of political correctness dictate that former astronauts can’t acknowledge such truths anymore, as Mr. Kelly’s pathetic apology clearly shows.

“Did not mean to offend by quoting Churchill.” *sigh*.  I promise never to offend my readers again by quoting Scott Kelly.

Shame on you, Ruth. – In his first day on the job, Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh hired an African American law clerk.  Why is this significant?  Because Justice Kavanaugh, with that single hiring, has now hired exactly the same number of African Americans as Ruth Bader Ginsburg has employed during her 25 years on the Supreme Court and her 13 years on the DC Circuit Court of Appeals before that.

So, to put this in simple terms that even leftists can comprehend:

Ginsburg – 38 years, 1 black law clerk.

Kavanaugh – 1 day, 1 black law clerk.

The more you know.

Hey, found those WMDs yet, Colin? – Not to be overshadowed by some pop star, Colin Powell, whose dishonesty as UN Ambassador helped involve the U.S in a 17-year war in Afghanistan and a decade-long debacle in Iraq, somehow feels that he enjoys the moral authority to go off on President Donald Trump and his foreign policy.  The unbridled hubris of this man is truly breathtaking.

From our Once You’ve Seen This You Can Never Un-See It file…:

Hey, at least the Pantsuit Princess didn’t wear one of her favorite hospital gowns to Octoberfest, but what in the hell is Slick Willie thinking?

“Go on, take the money and run…”

So, when you’ve just made a cool $1.5 – $2 mil in a couple of GoFundMe accounts that were funded by a bunch of suckers who thought they were helping with your legal bills, but your lawyers publicly swore to the Senate Judiciary Committee that they were working for free, it’s time to just close up shop and ride off into the sunset, right?

Right.

Week in Review: The Kavanaugh Battle is Won but the War Rages on

Today’s Campaign Update – Week in Review

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Well, the deal is done.  Every senator voted the way they had previously signaled they would today, and Judge Brett Kavanaugh will now become Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh, and there’s not a damn thing the Democrats, the fake news media or their George Soros-funded professional activist proxy groups can do about it.

But make no mistake about it: these depraved, demented and disgraceful Democrats and their willing tools in the U.S. news media are not going to go softly into that good night where this Supreme Court fight is concerned.  They fully expected their strategy here to work, that Kavanaugh would willingly pull himself from consideration when faced with an array of accusers leveling all sorts of false attacks on his character, his family and his life.  Surely, they believed, he would concede rather than put his family through such a trial by fire, and President Trump would be relieved to have him do so.

Boy, did they miscalculate.  President Trump is not a quitter, and neither, we discovered, is Brett Kavanaugh.  Even more, we also found out that Senate Republicans like Lindsey Graham, Mitch McConnell and even Susan Collins were no longer willing to just shrink away in the name of some fool’s notion of Senate “comity” and surrender like they had almost always done in the past.

But the Democrats will continue pounding on the Kavnaugh issue at least through Election Day, and will no doubt attempt to mount an impeachment fight should they end up gaining a majority in the House of Representatives.  Because for them, this is and always has been about nothing but preserving Roe v. Wade, the most baseless decision ever issued by the U.S. Supreme Court, in the law, and thus preserving abortion on demand.

Going into this fight, they really believed they could stop Kavanaugh, win a majority in the House and the Senate (which is not going to happen), and force President Trump nominate a compromise candidate for the seat, maybe even Merrick Garland.  They truly believed they could achieve this.  That’s how depraved their minds really are.

Now, they’ve lost on Kavanaugh, have basically no chance of winning a majority in the Senate, and see their advantage in House races rapidly slipping away. They also see that Ruth Bader Ginsberg can’t even hold her head up or get two cogent sentences out of her mouth anymore, meaning that if something radical is not done, the new 5-4 originalist advantage on the Court could soon become a 6-3 advantage, from which they could probably never recover.

So, being the soulless, demented ghouls that they are,  they will now attempt to make the mid-term elections a referendum on soon-to-be-Justice Kavanaugh and plan to mount an impeachment war on him should they win the House.  Thus, the battle is won, but the war goes on.

All that having been said, let’s get to the Campaign Update Week in Review, this time in the form of the week’s biggest losers and winners:

LOOOOOOOOOOOOSERS:

Chuck Schumer – The Senate Minority Leader said this in his speech on Saturday: “Let the confirmation process for Judge Kavanaugh be recorded as a sorry epilogue to the brazen theft of Justice Scalia’s seat.” The fact is that Senate Republicans blocked Merrick Garland’s nomination by following a precedent Schumer himself had loudly advocated, and were able to confirm Kavanaugh with just 50 votes thanks to the effort led by Schumer and Harry Reid to eliminate the filibuster on judicial nominations.  Little Chucky was hoist on his on petard, and it could not have happened to a nicer guy.

The Creepy Porn Lawyer – Came up with not one, but two “clients” whose claims were so outrageously false that even the fakenewsers at CNN and MSNBC did their best to ignore them.

The Fake News Media – The “reporting” on the Kavanaugh process was so despicably one-sided that the newsfakers even lost Morning Joe and Mika.  That’s quite an accomplishment.

Democrat Senate candidates in “Red” states – Heidi Heitcamp went to bed a week ago ahead in her race against Republican Kevin Cramer, and woke up Wednesday morning trailing by 12 points.  Claire McCaskill now finds herself down by 8 in Missouri.  Other Dems running in red states saw similar shifts in their poll numbers as normal Americans became increasingly enraged by their party’s obvious smear job on Kavanaugh.

Dianne Feinstein – Revealed herself to the entire nation as a snake who cannot be trusted with power.  GOP Senate candidates should be using her in their campaign ads.

Lisa Murkowski – Looked small and petty in her speech opposing Kavanaugh on absurdly flimsy grounds.  Set herself up to be primaried by a real Republican when she’s up for re-election in 2022.

Jeff Flake – for obvious reasons that I have previously detailed and really don’t want to talk about anymore.

Cory Booker – Turned himself into a running joke with his Spartacus moment.

Leftist Protesters – this tweet came across my feed as I was typing up this Review:

That’s just all kinds of awesome.

 

WINNERS:

The American People – The vote to confirm Kavanaugh is a victory for the presumption of innocence, the rights of the accused, the rules of evidence and just plain common sense.

Christine Ford – Yes, she’s been exposed as a mendacious fraud, a practiced liar who conspired with an array of lawyers, current and ex-FBI agents and despicable reporters to smear a good man, but Ms. Ford will clear $1.5 to $2 million from her various GoFundMe accounts and will now be elevated as a hero of the American left, a la Anita Hill. She’ll make millions in speaking fees, be awarded pretty much whatever political job she wants, and will no doubt be deified in a Hollywood film staring Meryl Streep within a year.

Lindsey Graham – As I detailed in the Campaign Update last Friday, Graham’s dramatic speech during the Ford/Kavanaugh hearing literally changed the course of history, and will forever change for the better the way he is regarded by the GOP voter base.

Susan Collins – Her speech on Friday was pitch perfect, soundly based in process, tradition and law, and will be remembered in the history books as the moment that sealed this deal.  She is up for re-election in 2020 in a state that is evenly divided on this matter, so her determination to do the right thing and give that speech was a true profile in political courage.

Mitch McConnell – His stewardship of the Senate process this week was glorious.  Made several floor speeches that demonstrated he has learned a lot from Donald Trump on how to deal forcefully with the Democrats and their media slaves.

[EDIT]  Chuck Grassley – How could I forget the Chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee?  Geez.  As a reader points out, “Notwithstanding your dislike of him supporting ethanol, you forgot Chuck Grassley in the winners list. He played a masterful game to even get it to the full senate for debate.”  True story.

Brett Kavanaugh and Donald Trump – for obvious reasons.

Oh, yeah, and the American economy – The unemployment rate fell to 3.7%, the lowest since 1969, a fact our despicable news media studiously ignored.

The Los Angeles Dodgers – have played four games this week, and given up just 2 runs, ringing up three shutouts.  Clayton Kershaw pitched such a great game Friday night that he received a standing ovation from Sandy Koufax.  It don’t get no better than that, folks.

The Texas Longhorns – My boys in Burnt Orange blew a 45-24 lead to the Oklahoma Sooners in a span of 7 minutes in the 4th quarter, then came back and kicked a field goal with 9 seconds remaining to eke out a 48-45 victory in the nation’s most intense college football rivalry.

God Bless America.

That is all.

The Participants in the Kavanaugh Smear Must be Punished

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Hey, remember 8 days ago, when Rod Rosenstein was going to be fired?  When he had resigned?  When he had, according to our fake news media, verbally resigned no fewer than five times?  Yeah, those were good times, huh?

Hey, remember when President Trump ordered the declassification of a bunch of documents that have been requested various congressional committees and stonewalled for more than a year by the DOJ and the FBI?  That was, like, 3 weeks ago?  Right?

Hey, remember when every liberal/leftist/socialist/commie in America was telling us that, if you criticize the FBI, you’re committing, like, treason or something?  Yeah, what was that – last month?

Hey, remember when everybody in Washington, DC and your fake news media was telling you how oh, so credible and stuff Ms. Christine Ford was?  That was last Thursday, 6 short days ago.

As of this morning, Ms. Ford’s fairy tale has fallen completely apart.  It turns out that, not only is there no one out there who can verify a single shred of it, but there are people out there who have been able to completely debunk pretty much all of it.  It turns out that Ms. Ford is not just a fabricator, but, if what her former boyfriend attests to in a sworn statement supplied yesterday to the Senate Judiciary Committee, she may even be a bit of a pro at it:

Oh, my.  Oh, my, my, my.  During her testimony, Ms. Ford was asked not once, but three times if she had ever coached anyone about how to take a polygraph test, and every time she replied either “no” or “never.”

Here are other aspects of her story we now know to be completely untrue:

  • She outright lied several times about her interactions with despicable Sen. Dianne Feinstein and her staff.
  • She claimed to have added a new room and second exit to her home in 2012, because of her “claustrophobia” or something.  California records prove that that room and exit were actually added in 2008, and the space was subsequently used for an office and was even rented out to others from time to time.
  • She claimed to have a terrible fear of flying and held up the work of the Judiciary Committee for an entire week using this excuse.  We now know she is in fact a world traveler who flies all the time.
  • She claimed her polygraph test taken in August was very intrusive with the ex-FBI agent who conducted it asking her endless questions about her entire life.  The ex-agent himself says he asked her two questions.
  • She claimed she had no knowledge of the Committee’s offer to fly staff out to California to interview her when she lied about her fear of flying.  Either she or her scumbag lawyers are lying about that.

Speaking of her scumbag lawyers:  Despite all this now-public knowledge about these and other apparent lies Ms. Ford emitted last Thursday in her feigned, trembly 12 year-old valley girl voice, those lawyers sent an angry letter over to Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley last night demanding that their client be interviewed by the FBI yet again before its investigation is shut down:

This is breathtaking malpractice.  It isn’t enough that her testimony has been demonstrated to contain multiple fabrications or that it does not line up with the letter she sent to Senator Feinstein; Now, her own lawyers want her to be formally interviewed by the FBI, creating yet another opportunity for her to perjure herself?

Whatever else happens as this disgusting confirmation fiasco created by the Democrats and their toadies in the fake news media, this behavior must be punished.  All three women who have blatantly, shamelessly lied about Judge Kavanaugh and all of their lawyers – including the Creepy Porn Lawyer – must be punished for putting our country through this disgrace.  Senator Feinstein and her staff should also be put through the wringer for their disgusting roles in this.

Sadly, the Republicans will most likely just confirm Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court and let it all go, because they get awful advice from their communications and political advisors, and because most of them are afraid of their own shadows.  We can hold out hope that the few who have shown actual courage through this process – like Lindsey Graham and Grassley – will force ethics investigations of Feinstein, Sen. Chris Coons, Sen. Kamala Harris and others who have obviously coordinated efforts with the accusers and various leftist radical groups, and pound on the Justice Department to pursue criminal actions against the accusers and their lawyers.  But the Republican pattern has always been just let stuff like this go once they’ve won the political battle at hand.

If that happens in this instance, it will forever be a stain on all of them.  Because this wasn’t just a dirty political fight, it is in fact a coordinated effort by the Democrats, their leftist proxy groups and their fake news media toadies to destroy a good man’s life and irrevocably corrupt the confirmation process for Supreme Court justices.  Even worse, it is an effort to forever destroy the presumption of innocence and rights of the accused guaranteed in our constitution, if the accuser is a woman and the accused is a man.  If these people walk away from this unscathed and unpunished, they will only be emboldened to do it all again in the future.

One thing we know for sure, Grassley’s Chief of Staff, Mike Davis, is sick and tired of all of it.  Here is an actual email exchange he had with the Creepy Porn Lawyer on Tuesday:

That’s just 99 varieties of awesome.  And hilarious.

Trump Disrupts Democrat War on U.S. Workers With New NAFTA Deal

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Hey, remember when all the “experts” were telling you that President Donald Trump could not possibly successfully renegotiate the 25 year-old NAFTA deal? – Yeah, they were wrong about that, too.

The new name’s a little clumsy, but the deal is done, and the deal is much, much better for America’s workers, especially those in blue collar, farming and union jobs.  Hey, remember when those were the kind of jobs the Democrat Party used to at least pretend to care about?  Yeah, good times…

Today, as you absorb the no-doubt slanted news about this new trade agreement, remember that the very same “experts” who told you this could not be done are also telling you that Donald Trump will never, never, never, ever be able to really get the Crazy Little Fat Guy in North Korea to de-nuclearize the Korean Peninsula.  Do not be surprised when the successful completion of that effort is a major plank in Trump’s re-election campaign in 2020.

The Teenage Drama Queen gets a by-line in the New York Times, and boy is it a hoot. – Former FBI Director and current teenage drama queen James Comey penned an op/ed for the sad old New York Times on Sunday, because of course he did.  The most corrupt director the agency has ever had slammed the mounting of this week-long FBI investigation into all the absurd accusations directed at Judge Brett Kavanaugh, not be cause the charges are so obviously false, not because the Judge has already been the subject of 6 previous in-depth, open-ended FBI background checks, but because…wait for it…you can’t “put a shot clock” on an FBI investigation.

In other words, the very same corrupt, pathological liar who twice put a strict shot clock on the agency’s sham “investigation” into Hillary Clinton’s illegal email server has of course joined the Democrat chorus against the week-long time frame for this investigation that the Democrats agreed to just 3 days ago.  There are perfectly descriptive words for James Comey, but I just can’t use them here.

Sunday’s @GDBlackmon Twitter Deep Thought…

Hey, you know it’s true.

Meanwhile, in the Texas Senate Race… – Last Thursday, when it looked like the Senate would be held into session over the weekend to deal with the Kavanaugh nomination, Ted Cruz informed Irish Bob O’Rourke that he would not be able to make it to Houston for their scheduled debate early Sunday evening.  On Saturday morning, Cruz notified Irish Bob that he could in fact make it to Houston thanks to the idiotic machinations of Arizona Senator Jeff Flake, but Irish Bob declined, saying he now had made other “plans.”

So, what was Irish Bob doing at the very time the debate was supposed to be taking place?  Why, he was engaged in an hour-long Facebook Live session from his kitchen.

Obviously, Irish Bob still hasn’t figured out how he’s going to backtrack from his false denial of leaving the scene of the wreck he caused while driving drunk back in the 1990s.  Until he does, we probably won’t be seeing any more debates between the two Texas senate candidates.

Back to the Kavanaugh nomination process one more time. – So, the Democrat playbook for this week is now clear…

  • Agree to a limited FBI investigation to last no more than one week;
  • Spend the weekend wailing that the investigation is tooooooooooo liiiiiiiiimmmmittttteeeeeddddd!!!;
  • Find male “acquaintances” of Judge Kavanaugh from high school and college to tell Democrat media activists that the Judge, when a teenager, was a sloppy drunk;
  • Pretend it’s a really big deal that the FBI is questioning the second, obviously lying, female accuser;
  • Have the Dragon Lady from Hawaii all over TV claiming that the investigation is “falling apart” before it even gets started in earnest;
  • And then, late in the week – probably Wednesday night or sometime Thursday – have another female accuser crawl out of the woodwork with more false allegations; or
  • Maybe even have some leftwing activist parent of one of the kids Kavanaugh has coached in basketball over the years appear on CNN or MSNBC and accuse him of being a pedophile.

Or maybe both new accusations will come.  Remember that the Democrats’ favorite Saul Alinskly tactic is “projection,” i.e., accusing the Republicans of the exact behaviors of which they themselves are guilty.  Thus, accusations of pedophilia are pretty much inevitable, and indeed the leftists at USA Today already ran an op/ed implying that of Kavanaugh as an initial shot across the bow.

These people are demented, depraved and despicable, and nothing is beneath them.  To them, this is a war, literally.  It is a war not just on Judge Kavanaugh, not just on President Trump, not just on Republicans, but on all Americans who are not part of one of their aggrieved classes.  Frankly, it has even become a war on many of them – witness the bullying and booing of Kanye West that took place during his appearance on Saturday Night Live this past weekend.

This is not your father’s Democrat Party.  There are no moderates in that party anymore, no Scoop Jackson Democrats or even Lloyd Benson Democrats.  It is only possible to see their true nature with clear eyes when you accept the reality that there simply are no more decent people in the national Democrat Party today.  Not one.

These people are all about one thing:  The re-acquisition of power.  They will do literally anything to achieve that goal.  So buckle up, and don’t be surprised by the depravity to come this week.

That is all.

GoFundMe Accounts are the Democrats’ Latest Racket

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

A (spineless) man in his element. – If you’re into punishing yourself, tune into tonight’s “60 Minutes” on CBS, where the Amazing Man With No Spine, Jeff Flake, will appear in a joint interview with Democrat Senator Chris Coons.  There you will see a man truly in his element, sitting down and sharing talking points with a Democrat politician and a Democrat activist fake journalist from CBS.

Hey, who knows?  Maybe this is a job interview for Flake.  After all, the ratings for the CBS Evening News have been in the toilet for years now, and Flake couldn’t do any worse than the current anchor guy is doing.

As if to prove my point about where he is truly in his element, Flake also made a joint appearance with the slimy Coons on stage at something called the Global Citizen Festival, a music event organized and televised by the newsfakers at far-leftwing MSNBC.  There, in front of this mob of social justice warriors, snowflakes and disciples of George Soros, Coons of course hailed Flake as a “hero,” which is exactly what he is to these people.

What would you do for a cool $1 million? – #MeToo movement activists and their fake news media shills have spent the week castigating anyone who dares to question Christina Ford’s serial lying about Judge Kavanaugh by claiming “there’s nothing in it for her to come forward!”

Uh, well, it turns out there a ton of money “in it” for her to tell her tale, as two GoFundMe accounts set up in her name have now already raised more than $700,000 and will certainly top $1 million and much more before this coming week is out.  Now, these funds were ostensibly set up to pay for Ms. Ford’s legal costs, but her own lawyers testified under penalty of perjury to the Senate Judiciary Committee that they were in fact working “pro bono” for Ms. Ford, so this money is actually most likely going right into the witness’s pocket.

So, here’s a hypothetical: let’s say you’re a college professor knocking down no more than $150,000 per year, and someone comes to you and tells you that hey, you can make a million bucks by spending the next couple of months being prepped for testimony by some of the world’s greatest experts in training people how to lie on the witness stand, and then spending half a day in front of a congressional committee.  All of your expenses will be paid, and you’ll be set for life.  Would you do it?

If you hadn’t figured this out yet, the use of these GoFundMe accounts is the new Democrat racket – the new way they have landed on to bribe people for doing their bidding while avoiding the scrutiny of the IRS, the FBI and the Federal Election Commission.  Andrew McCabe, Peter Strzok, and several others have now profited handsomely from this racket, and it will continue unless and until these federal agencies get their acts together and start auditing where the money is coming from and for what purpose.

“Wait, me?  I didn’t do that.  Er, uh, we didn’t do that.  I don’t think…did we do that?  What?  Er, um, my staff tells me we didn’t do that.” – President Donald Trump (I still never tire of typing those three beautiful, gorgeous words) was in West Virginia campaigning for GOP senatorial candidate Patrick Morrisy and against Democrat snake Joe Manchin last night.  During his stemwinder (they’re always stemwinders at these events) he did a hilarious riff on evil Dianne Feinstein’s stammering non-denial denial when Chuck Grassley asked whether she or her staff had leaded Ms. Ford’s letter to the fake news media.

Here’s the link.  Trust me – you have got to watch this.  Too funny for words, and dead on.

Let’s close this Sunday morning tour de force with some examples why, if you aren’t following @GDBlackmon on Twitter, you are not having enough fun in life:

And finally, there’s this PG-13 rated little gem…

I got a million of ’em folks.  I’ll be here all week

Lindsey Graham Just Changed the Course of History

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

He said, she said, Lindsey said.  Game over. – I’ve said this several times over the last year, ever since John McCain took ill and was forced to pretty much remove himself from the scene in the nation’s capital, but it bears repeating here:  It is absolutely amazing just how great Lindsey Graham has become now that he is free from the pernicious influence of John McCain.

It is not an overstatement to say that Lindsey Graham changed the course of history yesterday.  Not an overstatement at all.  Up to the point of his decimation of the Democrats on the Senate Judiciary Committee and his laying bare of their despicable scheme against Judge Brett Kavanaugh for all the world to see, it is very likely that Judge Kavanaugh did not have a single Democrat vote in his favor for confirmation, and he probably would have lost several Republicans as well.

Yes, Judge Kavanaugh had acquitted himself extremely well.  His passionate, emotional opening statement was perfect, a revelation of a man outraged at the coordinated assault the Democrats and their proxies like the Creepy Porn Lawyer had mounted on his character, his life and his family.  The obvious contempt for those senators that oozed from his pores as he answered their idiotic questions about his high school yearbook was wholly justified and reflected the righteous indignation and anger being felt on his behalf by tens of millions of ordinary Americans out here in Flyover Country at the despicable spectacle the Democrats had organized against him.

But to that point, the day was probably a draw.  Dr. Christine Ford had also done well enough in the morning to probably give cover for every Democrat senator – even those up for re-election in so-called “Red” states – to vote against this nomination, and had likely created enough doubt about Kavanaugh and his character to frighten wobbly-kneed Republicans like Susan Collins, Jeff Flake and Lisa Murkowski away.  Ms. Ford was obviously lying about many things, but her job in all of this was only to create confusion and doubt, and she had successfully done that.

Everything changed when Senator Graham, upon returning from a 15-minute break in the proceedings, insisted on taking the questioning away from Maricopa County Attorney Rachel Mitchell and exercise his own senatorial privilege.  Graham only asked a couple of questions of Judge Kavanaugh during his 5 minutes, spending the remainder of his time unleashing holy hell on his depraved Democrat “colleagues” and changing the tone of the entire afternoon.

Had a similar outburst come from any of the other GOP senators on the Committee, it would not have had much effect.  But coming as it did from Lindsey Graham, who sadly had largely wasted the past dozen years following the execrable RINO McCain around like a little puppy dog on a leash, pretending that the Democrats were just well-intentioned “colleagues” and that such a thing as “collegiality” still existed in the U.S. Senate, and helping McCain and the Ds push open-borders and other globalist policies, it was a visible shock to the Democrat system and to their propaganda wing in the fake news media.

From that point forward, the Democrat senators were obviously cowed and never laid a glove on Judge Kavanaugh.  Their focus on asking the Judge about the meaning of passages in his high school yearbook and endless calls for a man who has already been through no fewer than 6 FBI background checks to call for yet another one made them look like the silly, disengenuous jackasses they truly are.

Left at long last to his own devices, freed from the destructive influence of McCain, Lindsey Graham grew into his full potential as a leader, as a senator and as a man on Thursday.  He abandoned the ranks of the RINO placeholders in the U.S. Senate and, just in the nick of time, achieved greatness.

As a result, Judge Kavanaugh will receive a “do confirm” recommendation out of the Judiciary Committee today, probably along party line votes.  After the senate spends the following few days going through all its goofy Kabuki theater floor speeches and cloture nonsense, Kavanaugh will be confirmed on Tuesday to become the next associate justice to the U.S. Supreme Court.  At the end of the day, he will probably receive right at the same number of total votes as did Neil Gorsuch, with several squeamish Red state Ds joining all 51 Rs to confirm.

But much more than that was at stake here.  As I wrote last week and again earlier this week, our constitutional guarantees of the right to face our accusers and the presumption of innocence for the accused were under assault and on the line in this nomination, thanks to the the Democrat conspiracy to destroy this man’s life on the front pages of our nation’s fake newspapers.

I have been extremely critical of Senator Graham over the years, mainly due to his slavish devotion to John McCain, and I believe he deserved every bit of the criticism he received over those years.  But today, he is my hero because, when the moment came when he and only he could summon the personal gumption to stand up and change the course of history for our country, he rose to the occasion and grew into his potential as a true statesman.

God bless him for doing that, God bless Judge Kavanaugh and his family and God bless America.

That is all.
