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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

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

Oh, joy!

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

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

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

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

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

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

That is all.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

That is all.

Climate Alarmists Can’t Do the Maths

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

Ok, look: If we’re going to have all of this incessant climate alarmism going on, can’t we at least get the numbers straight? All of this constant throwing out seemingly random numbers about when the world’s going to burn up, freeze, flood or just plain end is getting unbelievably tiresome.

Why bring this up now? Yesterday, Senator from the #ClimateScam Ed Markey told a sheep-filled audience that “Within 15 years, Mar-a-Lago’s going to be underwater for over 100 days a year, it’s going to be Mar-a-Lagoon, not Mar-a-Lago.” Clever, right? Ok, not so much.

But here’s the thing about this whole “15 years” deal: It doesn’t match anything all the other climate alarmists are saying.

The day before Markey pontificated about President Trump’s Florida property, fake Hispanic climate alarmist Irish Bob O’Rourke had this to say:

Oh. So it’s really just 10 years, huh?

But that really doesn’t conform with anything all the other alarmists are saying, either, does it?

Nope.

Last week, a Harvard scientist pronounced that we have only 3 years to save the arctic ice cap: “The chance that there will be any permanent ice left in the Arctic after 2022 is essentially zero,” Anderson said.

In January, as she rolled out her hysterically absurd “Green New Deal”, Climate Simpleton Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez told us that the number is actually 12 years: ‘The world is gonna end in 12 years if we don’t address climate change,” she said during a congressional hearing.

That doesn’t even get us to all the hilariously-wrong predictions of doom coming in X number of years from the Climate Alarmist past. Way back in 1988, Ted Danson told a congressional committee – whose membership included then-senator Al Gore – that we had just 10 years to save the oceans. Yet here we sit, 31 years later, and the oceans somehow still live.

Apparently taking his cues from Danson, Gore released his awful film, “An Inconvenient Truth”, in 2005. According to Gore, at that time we had less than a decade before the polar ice caps melted. Yet, there they still sit, 14 years later.

In 1970, the granddaddy of all the Climate Alarmists, the perpetually wrong Paul Ehrlich, told us we were headed into another ice age, and that half the world’s population was gonna starve by the end of the 20th century. The world’s population has steadily grown ever since, and a tiny fraction of people suffer from hunger today than did 49 years ago.

Now, the world’s not going to end in 10 years, or 12 years or 15 years or 100 years, and all of these Climate Alarmist hucksters are well aware of that. They’re just in it for the politics, using their fake “green” stances as excuses to push their socialist ideology.

But one request: Can’t we at least just all agree on a number? I don’t really even care which number it is – just pick one and stick with it. It would make you all far more credible, if only slightly less annoying.

Thanks.

That is all.

The Week in Review: Beto, Biden and Bribes, Oh My!

The Campaign Update Week in Review
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

The Week in Review, courtesy of the @GDBlackmon Twitter Feed…

The week began with the loss of an hour’s sleep due to our annual national act of Daylight Savings Time insanity, and it just went down from there.:

The sponsor of the “Green New Deal” was among fellow Climate Frauds in Austin on Sunday, and she got a selfie with one of the biggest frauds of all.:

This is, like, what AOC, like, sounds like when she….ummm…like, goes off script.:

Meanwhile, things continued to crumble out in Los Angeles…:

He isn’t often right, but he’s right about this.:

Greg Budell had the perfect solution for young Americans who favor turning our country into just another socialist cesspit of human misery.:

Fox News’s Tucker Carlson again became a target of the social media outrage mob when the scumbags at Media Matters dug up some comments he’d made on a talk radio program a decade ago. His response should serve as the role model for anyone caught up in such nonsense in the future.:

It’s always fun watching an old cowboy whipping a young thug’s ass, complete with taking his shirt.:

The fake news never stops at CNN, and Little Jimmy Acosta continues to be the most tireless yet least effective news-faker in the business.:

This bit of truth cannot be repeated often enough.:

Oh. Uh, wouldn’t that be, like, collusion or something?:

How many dead elderly Americans do you reckon polled to come to the conclusion that they aren’t happy?:

This man is seriously considering running for president. No, seriously, he really is.:

Think about it: You know it’s true.:

Man, that’s gonna make it a lot harder for the people at NOAA to keep defrauding the global temperature records.:

Is this even an arguable point? China is the world’s second-largest economy, and it is still taking money from the World Bank? Holy crap, we are such a bunch of suckers.:

She. Did. Not. Rule. Out. Impeachment.:

When the media refuses to correctly identify the root cause of the problem (in this case, Democrats) the problem will only continue to grow.:

A couple of true geniuses passed away this week. First, Dan Jenkins, probably the greatest and funniest sports writer who ever lived, died at the age of 94. Then, Hal Blaine, an incomparable studio drummer, joined Jenkins in the afterlife.:

Mitt Romney had a birthday, and all that did was remind us of his failings.:

It was a week when the Democrats really ramped-up their obsession with political losers.:

The truth about AOC emerged, and it really helped make sense of everything she says and does. If you haven’t taken the 23 minutes required to watch this expose’, make time to do it. You’ll be glad you did.:

Oh, well, call me insecure, then. *sigh*:

Pretty sure that’s also a piece of AOC’s “Green New Deal.” Isn’t sewer water generally green?:

Here, I try to educate some fake reporter who is lying about his interactions with folks from the oil and gas industry. I no doubt failed.:

Just thought you all should know this.:

Here I capture the essence of today’s Federal Bureau of Investigation.:

Well, I would.:

Here is leading Climate Fraud Bill McKibben, promoting what amounts to nothing more or less than mass child abuse.:

And now we pause for a little cat comedy gold.:

Ok, this intermission is going to last just a little longer…:

In other news, water continues to be wet.:

This was not the best piece I’ve ever written, but it might well be the cleverest headline.:

Self-awareness continues to be a personal weakness for Fauxcahontas.:

Ben Shapiro captured the pure essence of the media’s approach to writing Beto profiles.:

There are just so many unattractive options where Irish Bob O’Rourke is concerned.:

Seriously, was there still anyone out there who didn’t already know this?:

Try, just try, to imagine how utterly worthless a degree from NYU truly is.:

Well, of course he did.:

When his campaign comes up a crapper, he can replace Matthew McConaughey in those Lincoln ads.:

If you don’t follow Nick Searcy on Twitter, you are truly missing out on the fun.:

I got up in a sour mood on Friday. CNN only made it worse.:

Just hours after swearing we were all gonna die if we don’t stop using gasoline, Irish Bob was begging donors to pay to fill up his gas-guzzling minivan. You seriously cannot make this stuff up.:

No question about this.:

David Corn needs better talking points. This is just too easy.:

This happened.:

Now, for another funny break.:

When Chelsea Clinton was harassed by a Muslim college student, various conservatives rushed to her defense on Twitter. I couldn’t for the life of me figure out why. But then, I never cared much for virtue signaling.:

This is self-serving, but hey, it’s my blog.:

I always was a big fan of The Who.:

Those two options are not mutually-exclusive.:

Here, I offer a little free advice to Senator Ted Cruz.  I wish he’d take it – he’d be doing a national service.:

The clearest proof that “Climate Change” is a socialist-promoting scam is that its most prominent spokesmen are invariably people who don’t make any effort at all to change their own lifestyles.:

Finally, I’m a huge fan of Texas Governor Greg Abbott, but every once in a while he gets something wrong.:

The Week in Review: A Rat, A Duke, A Dress, A Bug-Eyed Schiff and AOC

The Campaign Update Week in Review
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

The Week in Review, courtesy of the @GDBlackmon Twitter Feed…

The week kicked off with a controversy about a 48 year-old interview in Playboy Magazine with John Wayne. A friend had the best take on that one:

Things only went downhill from there. Here SkyNews, the very liberal and very British affiliate of Fox News, asks possibly the least relevant question of the century thus far:

On the Sunday morning talk shows, California Democrat Bug-eyed Adam Schiff was doing what he always does…:

…and then CNN jumped into the competition with SkyNews to see which could post the most absurd story of the day, because of course they did.:

Charlie Sykes thinks we need Mitt Romney. I properly set him straight on when it was that we really did need him. It was a long, long time ago, and he failed us.:

Speaking of The Duke, let us bask in his greatness. Oh, and look who smiled and hugged him when she presented his award.:

Oh, yeah, the Oscars were Sunday night. Here’s how the ummmm…er….welllll….’men’ dressed for the occasion this year.:

The news-fakers at USA Today did their best to describe Mr. Porter’s attire a something it wasn’t, and I wasn’t in the mood for it.:

Ok, let’s just move on, shall we?

It was an exasperating week during which even the smart people were doing dumb stuff.  The normally astute Byron York asks a very dumb question.:

No further explanation required here.:

Like AOC, Harry Reid needs a self-awareness coach.:

As President Trump prepared to fly out to Vietnam to meet with the Crazy Little Fat Guy, the memes were flying. Here’s one of the very best.:

Speaking of lying California Democrats, I give you Kamala Harris.:

Offered without further comment, because none is needed.:

You really can’t make this stuff up, folks…:

Sometimes the future looks incredible, but then you think things through…:

Steve Goddard succinctly and hilariously sums up the #ClimateScam, something he does about 26 times every week.:

A blast from the past that never gets old.:

Hey, wonder which way Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s staff voted on this one?

Mere pocket change to today’s Democrat Party.:

The depravity of the Democrat Party has never been on more blatant display than it was this week.:

James Woods doesn’t like shaking hands, so I offered a solution.:

Here I thank AOC for her incredibly generous stupidity and shamelessly promote my website, all in 280 characters.  I can be efficient when I want to be.:

My Twitter feed also has its very own handy FACT CHECK service. No need to thank me.:

Seriously, you can’t make this stuff up, and who would really want to?:

Lara Logan continued her campaign to tell the truth about our fake news media. Our fake news media was not amused.:

Speaking of fake news, the news-fakers at Slate did their dead level best to avoid the point of the new HBO film revealing the true nature of the monster Michael Jackson, so I tried to set them straight. It probably didn’t work, but it made me feel better.:

Oh yeah, and the Rat was testifying on Capitol Hill most of the week. So tiresome.:

Shameless self-promotion, in case you missed it.:

The horrific outcomes of Democrat Party policy choices, part 23,252.:

Back on February, 7,  I wrote that Irish Bob O’Rourke had better Fish or Cut Bait on his decision whether or not to run for the presidency, speculating that he was running the risk of missing his moment.  That speculation looked pretty prescient this week when he made his announcement and almost nobody noticed.:

I couldn’t have said it any better…:

The Olympics have been trending towards PC fakery for many years now, but this week, they went all-in. No need to waste time watching anymore.:

This candidate for congress doesn’t know the difference between a fully-automatic weapon and a semi-automatic weapon. Needless to say, she’s a Democrat.:

If you don’t follow  Nick Searcy on Twitter, you are missing all the fun.:

Seriously, are there really people out there who are so damn dumb that they thought these two were doing anything other than promoting a film?  Really?:

If you missed this, you need to watch it, and I’m not kidding.:

Here I sum up Joe Biden without even having to talk about all his creepy handsy-ness with women and children.:

Some other guy jumped into the Democrat presidential race.:

Hey, you can’t blame a guy for hoping, can you?:

Good Lindsey Graham continues its takeover of Bad Lindsey Graham, a trend that’s been ongoing since John McCain left this life last August.:

Just in case anyone has forgotten…:

Glad he was finally arrested, but why did it take so long? Oh, yeah, because he assaulted a conservative at Berkeley. Stupid question.:

President Donald Trump (I never tire of typing those three glorious words) set the house on fire with a two-hour stemwinder at CPAC.:

Finally, Saturday was Texas Independence Day. God Bless Texas, y’all!:

Meet Your Chief Justice: John Anthony Kennedy David Souter Roberts

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

Man, that global warming is wreaking havoc in California. Oh, wait… – Scientists have been recording daily temperatures in Los Angeles for 132 years.  In all that time, they have never recorded a month of February during which the mercury did not top 70 degrees Fahrenheit on at least one day.

But then 2019 came along, and the temperature in LA remained below the 70 degree level for the entire 28 days.  Can there be any doubt that the “scientists” at NOAA who have spent the last decade defrauding the historic global temperature records in order to make the modern era appear to be warming will soon issue a report claiming this February to be the “warmest on record”?

I give it maybe 30 days before that happens. The Climate Scam never ends.

Today’s Public Service Announcement: Just so no one forgets: Ralph KKK Baby-Killer Blackface Coonman Northam is still Governor of Virginia, one full month after his college photo was revealed for all to see. Thanks, Democrats!

 

Chief Justice John Anthony Kennedy David Souter Roberts strikes again. – In case you missed it, our squish Chief Justice made more moves this week to side with the liberal minority on the Supreme court:

“Roberts joined the liberals Wednesday in two rulings that left the conservatives in dissent. Most notably, he cast the deciding vote to order a new look at the mental competence of a death row inmate who says he can’t remember the crimes he committed.

The votes add to an unmistakable pattern, offering fresh indications that Roberts is in no hurry to oversee a conservative legal revolution. The chief justice has also joined 5-4 orders that blocked President Donald Trump from curbing bids for asylum at the Mexican border and stopped Louisiana from enforcing new abortion restrictions.”

Here’s my favorite part of that Bloomberg article:

“’Chief Justice Roberts’s voting pattern this year reflects a change,’ said Josh Blackman, a professor at the South Texas College of Law in Houston.”

You don’t sayyyyyy…

In reality, Roberts’ voting pattern simply reflects the pattern at-large for half of the Supreme Court justices appointed by Republican presidents going back to the great Ronald Reagan. Reagan gave us Sandra Day O’Connor and Anthony Kennedy, sandwiched around great justices in William Rehnquist and Antonin Scalia; Poppy Bush gave us the execrable closet leftist David Souter before redeeming himself with the stalwart Clarence Thomas; George W. Bush first served up Justice Roberts before trying to go even lower with the laughable nomination of Harriett Myers – who the Senate properly rejected – and then made a big comeback with the nomination of Samuel Alito.

So when you look at that history, the reality is that the three GOP presidents before Donald J. Trump batted .500 when it comes to putting strict constructionist judges onto the Supreme Court. Even Ronaldus Magnus had a hard time getting it all right, although in his defense he did first nominate Robert Bork before serving up Kennedy, after Bork was shamefully slandered by Senate Democrats.

Roberts gave us a preview of things to come nine years ago with his horrific “that fee is a tax except when I want to call it a fee for the purposes of this laughably twisted and illogical decision” Obamacare ruling. But he seems to have waited for Kennedy to be replaced by a real conservative justice before making his move to go all-in to become the squish vote on the Court.

After this week, there can be no doubt that that is exactly where his real comfort zone is, which only makes the 2020 election that much more critical for the future of our country.

President Trump needs at least one more appointment.

That is all.

Stop Laughing: The EPA is Actually Very Serious About Capturing Cow Farts

The Afternoon Campaign Update
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

“We’re gonna regulate cow farts to save the world.” – This part of the outline of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s infamous “Green New Deal” (GND) provoked peals of laughter all across the country and weeks of ridicule on every social media platform. But here’s the truth: the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has spent millions of research and development dollars during the course of the 21st century in a Quixotic quest to figure out how to do exactly that.

For example, on Dec. 5, 2008, CBS News ran a report headlined “EPA’s Air Pollution Target: Flatulent Cows”. The story reports on farmers’ concerns about a newly-issued EPA report that seemed to propose a literal tax on cow farts. No kidding.

A Daily Caller report on April 11, 2014 details GOP concerns that the Obama EPA led by Gina McCarthy was also considering implementing a new tax on cow flatulence. The concern was then based on the Obama-era “Climate Action Plan” that would enact penalties on the agricultural industry unless it found ways to reduce methane emissions – which in fact far outstrip similar emissions from the natural gas industry – by 25% by the year 2020.

It isn’t just the U.S. media reporting on this smelly subject – the UK Daily Mail got into the act a few days later with a doozy of a story headlined “Now That’s Wind Power! Cows Wear BACKPACKS to Capture Their ‘Emissions’ and Become Miniature Power Stations”.

The story begins with the following opening paragraph and accompanying photo that I swear is a real thing:

“On Friday, the Obama administration stated that it would make a multi-pronged attack on cow flatulence, in an attempt to cut methane emissions. As a result, windy cows have come under renewed scrutiny by scientists, who plan to capture their harmful emissions and convert them into ‘green’ energy. But scientists in Argentina believe they have come up with a solution – cow backpacks that can be used to trap the animal’s natural gas.”

Now, you can’t see it in that photo – which is a really fortunate thing – but that poor cow actually has a hose jammed up its rear end so that this contraption can capture its frequent toots.  I swear I do not make this stuff up.

Then, in August of 2016, the Obama-era EPA issued the results of a new, very costly study that names farming and ranching as the single biggest emitter of CO2 in the United States, and estimates the ” technologically feasible abatement potential of the livestock sector is 267 million metric tons of carbon dioxide equivalent (MtCO2e) in 2030″ or fully 10% of U.S. baseline emissions.

Folks, that’s a lot of cow farts the EPA was planning on eliminating.

A simple web search turns up literally hundreds of similar stories over the years, all based on reports and studies issued by the EPA. Anyone who thinks federal regulators aren’t seriously intent on regulating cow farts hasn’t been paying attention.

Indeed, the release of that August, 2016 study led to a raft of new media reporting on the subject, such as this story at Bloomberg titled “Could Less Gassy Livestock Be A Cash Cow” (‘cash cow’ – get it?) and subtitled “It’s Time to Have a Conversation About Flatulent Cows.” Despite the cleverness of the headline writers, the author of the piece is completely serious, just like the nutjobs behind the Green New Deal.

So, laugh all you want – and God knows you should want to –  at AOC and her insane Green New Deal’s plan to capture cow farts, but do so armed with the knowledge that she is deadly serious, and that the bureaucrats at your EPA are serious about it as well, having spent the last 20 years wasting millions of your taxpayer dollars studying ways to do exactly that.

No need to thank me – happy to be of service.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Discovers Life at the Tippy-Top is Tough

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

Life at the Tippy-top can be hard. – Tuesday was a tough one for freshman congress member Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, our intrepid nitwit from the Bronx. Or is she? From the Bronx, that is.

First, she had to fend off legitimate questions about whether she even lives in the district she pretends to represent in congress, a problem for a growing number of Democrats, including Maxine Waters. Then she came under fire for the pay policy she has implemented among her staff, which includes a salary cap of $80,000, with a floor of $52,000.

Critics correctly point out the policy will prevent AOC from hiring top talent, since experienced staffers on Capitol Hill typically are paid in the $150,000 range.  Meanwhile, the ex-bartender with the IQ of an average gin and tonic herself is knocking down a sweet, “tippy-top” salary of $174,000 per year, making others wonder why, if she’s really a committed socialist, she isn’t redistributing most of her wealth among the little people?

Finally, this happened at dinnertime last night:

That’s right: Barely 72 hours after lecturing Americans against the evils of eating hamburgers and other beef products because, like, the environment, or something,  AOC got a small taste of the Sarah Huckabee Sanders treatment, as an enterprising passerby spotted her dining out with a burger-eating monster, captured the moment with his I-Phone and posted it all on Twitter.

For the record, I think members of congress, regardless of how stupid or personally wretched they might be, should be able to dine out in public without fear of such harassment, just as members of the Trump Administration ought to be able to do the same. But if this had to happen to one Democrat not named Maxine Waters, Adam Schiff or Eric Swalwell, it couldn’t have happened to anyone more deserving than the nitwit from the Bronx, er, wherever it is she that she actually resides.

Oh, hey, remember when the Democrats all said that “Climate Change” is the “most pressing national security issue of our time”? – Yeah, they were lying about that, too.

Want proof? Yesterday, the Democrats on the House Energy Resources Committee had scheduled a hearing on the whole subject of “Climate Change” so they could all recite the dogmatic talking points of their favorite religion, but guess what happened?

So few Democrats actually showed up for the hearing that they found themselves outnumbered by the Republicans who chose to attend. Texas Rep. Louie Gohmert, recognizing the moment he found himself in, quickly made a motion to adjourn the hearing due to the lack of interest on the part of the Democrats, and the GOP members carried the vote by a 4-2 margin.

Hearing adjourned. Thus, the all-seeing, all-knowing, all-powerful god of “Climate Change” that is responsible for literally every uncomfortable aspect of  human existence if all the climate “scientists” are to be believed, was left free to continue its ravaging of our planet by the members of the United States Congress. All because the Democrats aren’t really all that concerned about “Climate Change”, but will continue pounding home their talking points on the subject as long as they poll well among the frightened, ignorant masses.

Here’s all you really need to know about Michael Cohen. – I’ve written about this before, but it deserves repeating today since the Rat’s opening statement has been very predictably leaked in advance by some Democrat to the New York Times.

All you need to know about Michael Cohen is:

  1. He is about to go spend a lot of time in prison because he was already found guilty of lying to congress and to federal prosecutors; and
  2. His own lawyer is a guy named Lanny Davis.

Many of you will be familiar with Lanny Davis. Here is the truth I wrote about Mr. Davis last August 30th:

Lanny Davis has made a fabulous living for the last 25 years being a professional liar on television.  He has lied for a living on behalf of a seemingly endless array of skunks and snakes, starting with Bill and Hillary Clinton and is now doing it for ex-Trump lawyer Michael Cohen.

Lanny Davis is, simply put, a professional liar, nothing more. When you are a client who, out of all the lawyers in the country available to represent you in your case, chooses to be represented by a professional liar like Lanny Davis, that means your plan is to lie, lie, keep lying, and lie some more. There is literally no other reason for anyone to hire Mr. Davis.

So it should come as no surprise to anyone that Michael Cohen is planning to tell yet another completely different story than he has told other congressional committees in his prior testimonies. He has invented a new fairy tale that conveniently supports all of the Democrat/media fake narratives about President Donald Trump in the hopes of getting his prison sentence reduced.

Lanny Davis has been inventing fairy tales that support favored media/Democrat narratives for 25 years now.  What’s one more?

That is all.

The Week in Review: Farting Cows, Crafty Beavers, AOC Memes and Epic Swalwell Fail

The Campaign Update Week in Review
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

The Week in Review, courtesy of the @GDBlackmon Twitter Feed…

The week kicked off with the whole Jussie Smollett hoax coming apart, and James Woods summed the great irony of it all in a single 280-character message, as only he can do.

Meanwhile, fellow hoaxters like the Creepy Porn Lawyer mourned Jussie’s exposure:

While Jussie’s effort to smear President Trump, his millions of supporters and the City of Chicago was falling apart, a CNN reporter was helping one of his hoax’s faithful fans try on jackets, because of course that’s what a CNN reporter would do:

Shameless Self-Promotion Alert!:  All of this hoaxing and the fake news media’s willing promotion of it for two solids weeks led me to write this piece, which is worth a read in case you missed it, and (hint, hint) worth sharing if you’ve already read it:

CBS’s Lara Logan, a rare actual ethical journalist in a mainstream media ocean of shameful news-fakers, put her career on the line on Monday by telling the unvarnished truth about her dying profession:

The no-good very bad week for the New York Times’s chosen candidate, Kamala Harris, continued, as she obviously had no earthly idea what one of her staffers had posted on her own Twitter feed about the Jussie Smollett hoax. You can bet the week was even worse for the staffer, though:

Another real journalist, the great Sharyl Attkisson, had a noble thought, but one with obvious stumbling blocks that would have to be overcome:

From our Clowns are Everywhere files, well, I give you Juan Williams:

It was just another magnificent week for making fun of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez …:

Radio Host Greg Budell – who invites me on his show from time to time – sums up the Commie’s candidacy in 16 words…:

Speaking of making fun of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, here’s a pure masterpiece of memery:

What happens when fake “greens” obstruct the construction of oil pipelines? Canada dumps 120,000 barrels per day of it onto trains, greatly increasing air pollution and the potential for fatal accidents. Because, Climate Change or something…:

I was planning to write about 1,000 words on how the fake news media would fake its “reporting” on the Smollett hoax as it continues to play out, but Undercover Huber summed it all up perfectly in just 280 characters, so I wrote about other stuff instead:

Sometimes I wish James Woods wouldn’t mince his words so much. It’s always so hard to figure out what he’s really thinking…:

Oh, hey, this also happened…:

Here, detestable California creep congressman Eric Swalwell tries to portray himself as a hero by walking an extra block for a cup of coffee.  It didn’t work out well for him at all…:

Oh, hey, this happened on Tuesday, too.:

How does any editor worth a damn allow this headline to make it to print?:

Oh, yeah, and here’s what happens when the fake “greens” like Andrew Cuomo refuse to allow the construction of new natural gas pipelines, i.e., people have no heat:

Is anyone surprised by this? Because it doesn’t surprise me at all. Not even a little bit:

Shameless Self-Promotion Alert!: I was really on a roll this week, and if you missed this piece summing up the ongoing hoaxes by Jussie and AOC’s “Green New Deal”, here’s your chance to take it in and (hint, hint) share it:

Prove me wrong…:

Pretty sure we reached that point back during the Reagan Administration, but your point is well-taken (and if you haven’t seen the clip of Sir Charles lampooning Smollett, you need to watch it):

The inevitable end game of fascist socialism continues to play out in Venezuela…:

When Ben Shapiro posed a very pertinent question about the shady plea deal federal prosecutors entered into with notorious pedophile Jeffrey Epstein, I had a ready answer about two of the most frequent visitors to his private island where all the shenanigans took place. Our fake news media’s ongoing refusal to report the truth about the Clintons is one of the greatest stains in the history of the Republic:

With the Weekly Standard having gone belly up, the idiot dozen remaining #NeverTrump nitwits have a new platform for spreading their stupidity. Not surprisingly, it adopts one of the favorite tactics of leftwing activists. If this surprises you, you haven’t been paying attention to the leftward tilt of these fake “conservatives”, not that I blame you.:

And now for some good news that came through the ol’ Twitter feed on Friday…:

This was the NICEST thing I could think to say about Michael Steele on Friday evening when his despicable remarks came across the wires.  No wonder the RNC went to pot when he was serving as its chairman.:

Despicable Dianne Feinstein had a rare moment of cogent thought this week, which I captured here, even though I misspelled “admirable” in the process.:

Australians are already finding out the desperate costs of implementing just a tiny portion of the “Green New Deal” the hard way.:

Man, Breadline Bernie really needs to work on his Twitter self-awareness.:

In case you missed it due to the fake news media blackout on all the wonderful things President Donald Trump is accomplishing on your behalf, this happened this week.:

With all the reports about Amy Klobuchar forcing a staffer to clean the comb she’d taken out of her purse to eat a salad, it seemed to me everyone was missing the most disgusting part of it all.:

Since no one in the fake news media would dream of fact-checking leftwing activist and Q-list actress Alyssa Milano, I did it for them.:

Brett Kavanaugh is all like, “geez, I wish she and her fellow Democrats and the fake news media would have taken this attitude back in October.”:

Sometimes the Climate Scammers mess up and let the truth slip out…:

Speaking of Climate Scammers, the great Steve Goddard captures their essence with the perfect meme.:

Was this mean of me? Or were you thinking it too?:

And finally, I leave you with yet another of the best in a great week for AOC Twitter memes.:

That is all.
