The Depravity of the Democrats is Destroying America’s Soul

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

Hey, remember when, a decade ago, Climate alarmists were saying that children being born at the time would never see snow? Yeah, fooled them, huh?

 

Trey Gowdy finally finds his sweet spot. – Fox News announced yesterday that it is putting former South Carolina Congressman Trey Gowdy on contract as a paid contributor. This is the perfect landing for Gowdy, who proved in his congressional career that pontificating and criticizing others is all he really does well. Never has any Republican member of the House spent more time making awesome-sounding statements while doing pretty much nothing effective to follow up on them than Gowdy.   Gowdy was born to be a talking head on television. [Note: The original version of this piece said that Trey Gowdy is the grandson of legendary sportscaster Curt Gowdy. That is incorrect.]

Project Kamala, Phase 2 kicks in over at the Washington Post. – As I told you on Tuesday, the joint media/Democrat project to deal with Kamala Harris’s “Willie Brown issue” was underway and very predictable.  First, you have Brown do an interview in which he admits it all, right after she kicks off her campaign, and then the fake news media steps in to declare it “old news” and attack anyone who tries to bring it up in the future.

Right on cue, Washington Post columnist Monica Hesse wrote a piece on Wednesday in which she declares the “love life” of any “powerful woman” “off-limits” henceforth.  See, you’re a sexist if you try to hold a Democrat woman to the exact same standards as the fake news media holds any Republican.

From today forward, anyone criticizing Harris for having her career facilitated by her illicit lover will be assaulted by the fake news media using Hesse’s line of reasoning.  Classic.

Democrat Depravity on the March. – You probably thought the ongoing efforts by leftist activists in and out of our fake news media to normalize pedophilia in the American mind was as low as they could go.  But then you saw that they’ve now moved on to trying to normalize infanticide, and you realized that they will never stop trying to define deviancy down.

New York Governor Andrew Cuomo got the whole thing started last week when, upon signing a bill that allows for killing of infants even as the mother is in the throes of labor, he and New York City Governor Bill DeBlasio ordered the top of Freedom Tower to be lit up in pink as a celebration. I’m old enough to remember when then-President Bill Clinton liked to say that the Democrat Party wanted abortions to be legal, but rare. Now, they apparently want them to be legal and celebrated on the Ellen Show.

Not to be outdone in this ghoulish race to define deviancy down even further, Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam – who our fake news media hilariously describes as a “moderate” Democrat – told a radio interviewer Tuesday that he favors a proposed bill that would allow for a born infant to be “made comfortable” and set on a table while the mother and “doctor” talk about whether or not to murder it.  And make no mistake about it – “murder” is the only proper word to describe such a procedure.

The Virginia legislature at least has some conscience remaining even if its Governor does not, given that the bill did fail in subcommittee yesterday. But eight other states are now considering similar Democrat-sponsored bills, and the very act of publicly supporting such Nazi-like depravity on American soil tells us all we need to know about where the Democrat Party is headed today.

While they’ve always wanted to legalize such horrific acts, the leftist ghouls among us previously felt the need to carefully hide such thoughts from the public.  But today, seeing that there is zero price to be paid from our fake news media politically for promoting the sexual abuse of children and murder of fully born infants, they light up towers and do radio interviews in which they proudly express such views. Indeed, Cuomo, DeBlasio and Northam have all been widely applauded by c-list celebrities and blue-check “journalists” across social media for their “courageous” acts.

The Democrat Party today is an organization that is completely untethered to any code of moral conduct. As a Party, it no longer believes in the sanctity of human life, no longer has the slightest regard for the Constitution of the United States, no longer even believes in the importance of citizenship as a key determinant of voting rights. Democrat politicians as a class are happy to lie, cheat and steal their way into office and, like Governors Cuomo and Northam, and Mayor DeBlasio, increasingly willing to bare the depths of their amoral depravity in public.

If you vote for these people you are voting for the ongoing destruction of the American society, and of the American soul. It really is that simple.

That is all.

It’s Cold, and That’s Global Warming Too

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

Um, why not pick somebody who actually won? – The Democrat Party’s focus on losers continued on Tuesday, as San Fran Nan and Chuckie Schumer agreed to assign the task of reciting the Party’s fake response to next week’s State of the Union Address to…wait for it…failed Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams.

In accepting the role, Abrams becomes the first African American woman to do the honors on this thankless task. The only wonder here is, how come Nan and Chuck did not give the role to someone who actually won a race this year?

Why not, for example, assign the task to Texas Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee, who actually won her election in November, and see if she could stay on message for more than 25 words before she started talking about how we landed men on Mars, or how “today we have two Vietnams, side by side, North and South, exchanging and working”?  Or maybe she could talk about how “anything my staff does in my office is pursuant to congressional rules,” including that female staffer she allegedly fired for lodging a sexual harassment complaint.  That would be fun.

Oh, but let’s not forgot: Sheila has to park her butt in that aisle seat in the House chamber at 7:30 a.m. so she can get her face on television shaking the President’s hand as he enters to give his speech. That’s been her tradition for going on three decades now and we can’t interrupt it.

So, hey, give the talking points written by someone else to the lady who lost her election by 58,000 votes despite massive, blatant voter fraud in her favor. She’s the perfect metaphor for today’s Democrat Party, after all.

In case you hadn’t noticed, it’s cold, and that’s Global Warming, too. – Ok, well, they call it “Climate Change” now, but it’s the same nonsense packaged inside a different, more inclusive moniker.  It’s only “Global Warming” in the summer, when it’s hot. But now it’s cold as a well digger’s…well you know the rest … in a snow storm over 75% of the country, so that’s “Climate Change” because, you know, it has never been so hellishly cold before. Well, never except for all those millions of other times it was hellishly cold.

And there’s the best thing:  It’s all your fault, because science, and that means you have to become a socialist, because science too.  Get it?

What a racket. The greatest scam in the history of mankind. The best response to it is to turn up your heaters and use more gas. Might as well get comfortable, because you’re going to get blamed for it all anyway.

Or, you could fly your private jet 150,000 miles a year. – Well, you could if you’re Elon Musk, anyway. You all remember Elon Musk, right? You know, the pot-smoking CEO of Tesla, the electric car that’s gonna save the world from Global Warm…er, Climate Change?

Yeah, even the leftist cranks at the Washington Post are getting tired of his act. Yesterday the Post put up a story slamming Musk for not only flying 150,000 miles on his jet-fuel guzzling, CO2-emitting private jet in 2018, but for often having his pilot fly it between various airports in Los Angeles so it would be closer to wherever Musk happened to be working on any particular day. But it gets even better:

“In September, a few days after calling fossil fuels ‘the dumbest experiment in human history,’ his plane burned thousands of pounds of jet fuel flying 300 miles from L.A. to Oakland so Musk could view a competitive video-gaming event.”

Julie Vitkovskaya, a projects editor at the Post, put up this fascinating tweet chronicling Musk’s private jet usage in map form:

The Post of course concludes its story with a shot at corporate America, saying that “Musk is far from the only corporate leader to depend on the speed, flexibility and privacy of flying across the world on a private plane … But even compared to his peers, Musk’s travel stands out”.

But that misses the point, probably intentionally. The truth is that, when compared to his true “peer group” – that of fellow climate alarmists like Al Gore, Tom Steyer, Bill Gates and Leonardo DiCaprio – Musk’s private jet usage and carbon footprint do not stand out at all. These frauds are the biggest hypocrites on the planet and, if anything, Musk is likely a piker among that peer group when it comes to emitting carbon.

But remember, folks: Musk and his fellow Cardinals in the Global Church of Climate Change are not the problem, you are.

Repent, sinners, and give up your SUVs for a new Tesla! For verily Al Gore sayeth that it is easier for a private jet to pass through the eye of a needle than for a Suburban driver to enter the gates of Gaia.

*sigh*

AOC is Not Stupid – She’s Just “Educated”

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

Don’t blame her, she’s just like 74% of other Democrats. – The pathetically misinformed, abject ignoramus Alexandria Ocasio Cortez told an interviewer on Monday that  “The world is gonna end in 12 years if we don’t address climate change and your biggest issue is how are we gonna pay for it?”

Yes, friends, it seems our planet has an expiration date now, and AOC has determined it to be the year 2031. So, to hell with saving for retirement or paying those bills, let’s just all go out to Vegas and blow it all on slot machines and craps tables between now and then.

Seriously, the most fascinating part of that statement is the phrase “how are we gonna pay for it?” Her dimwitted interviewer lacked the presence of mind to ask her to explain what, exactly, would we be paying for between now and then, and how rapidly we’d have to ‘pay for it’ in order to stop the dreaded boogeyman “Climate Change” from ending our world in a dozen years.  But wouldn’t it have been fun to have this particular socialist ignoramus’s answer on video so we could make fun of it for the next dozen years, and the dozen years after that?

I mean, do we have to, like, pay for it all now, Alex?  Fork over that 30 trillion dollars we don’t have to do what – build gigantic vacuum cleaners to suck all of that evil carbon dioxide out of the air? Can we wait for a few years and then “pay for it”, maybe just put a down payment on it now? And what do we do when all of that CO2 has vanished down the nozzles of those gigantic machines and all the trees and plants die and everybody’s starving? Do we fork over another 30 trillion or so we don’t have to put it all back out again? Or is starving everyone part of the socialist play, too? One can only imagine what might have come out of her never-closed mouth had the right question been asked.

Not even the alarmists at the UN’s International Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) claim to have discovered the world’s expiration date.  The most they’re willing to say is that we might have 3 degrees of warming between now and 2100.  The Pope of the Church of Climate Change his own self, Al Gore, keeps saying “we only have 10 years left!!!” to address Climate Change’s ravages on our planet, but he’s been saying that every year for the last 30 years, so it’s always hard to figure out exactly what he means at any given time and temperature.

But now the new darling of the Democrat left says we only have a dozen years to live, and hey, 74% of all of our country’s self-described Democrats agree and are willing to vote for her for president, if only she were old enough to run.  Yes, friends, I swear I’m not making this stuff up:

“Exclusive: A new Axios/SurveyMonkey poll finds that 74% of Democrats (and people who lean Dem) would consider voting for Ocasio-Cortez if she were old enough to run for president. (She’s 29; you have to be at least 35.)”

How does one even respond to that finding? What would an actual sentient human being even say to a friend who came up to them and said he or she would just love to vote for possibly the most ignorant public figure on the entire planet if she were on the presidential ballot? Is it the appeal of voting for someone whose mind is apparently just a blank slate through which false information flows like a rancid river?

We should not blame AOC for any of this, by the way.  She is simply the personification of the state of education in America today. If you follow her Twitter feed, it becomes quickly obvious that she is not dimwitted, not what you would call a “stupid” person. She’s actually pretty quick-witted and funny when she wants to be.

No, what she is is hopelessly ignorant.  She says all sorts of things that in and of themselves are incredibly wrong and stupid, but that’s only because she is just regurgitating what she was taught in school. She obviously managed to obtain a college degree without learning a single actual true fact, but has survived in life and managed to get elected to congress based on her wits and innate intelligence. That’s actually pretty impressive when you think about it.

Like everyone else, AOC is the product of her upbringing and education. Her parents didn’t fail her – her upbringing was apparently very solid since she is poised, articulate, confident and carries herself very well in public.

What failed AOC is what has failed so many millions of Americans over the decades (apparently that includes 74% of self-described Democrats) and that is our education system. Like so many other people we all run into and deal with in our daily lives, AOC is not stupid, she just doesn’t know anything that’s actually true.

It’s not what AOC knows that’s the problem, it’s what she thinks she knows that just isn’t so. Of course, that just makes her a pretty typical Democrat member of congress, doesn’t it?

Wait, who? – Hey, y’all, Pete Buttigieg is running for president!  Isn’t that fantastic?  Oh, happy day! Buttieg 2020!!!!! Wait, B-u-t-t-i-g-i-e-g 2020!!!!!! Yeah, that’s right.  Woooo-hoooo!!!!!!!!

Uh, ok, who exactly is Pete Buttigieg? Why, he’s the 37 year-old mayor of South Bend, Indiana. At least if the Washington Post is to be believed, and yes, I know that’s pretty much a crap shoot in and of itself these days.

Uh, ok, so how do you pronounce his last name?  Hell, I don’t know – maybe AOC can tell you.

*sigh*

The Left’s War on Women Just Keeps Building

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

A fitting farewell to 41. – It is no secret by now that those who have held the office of the presidency are allowed to plan their own funerals, to include the use of national facilities such as the Capital Rotunda and the glorious National Cathedral. It is a real testament to the personal character of George Herbert Walker Bush that his funeral – in stark contrast to that of a late senator who recently was allowed to disrupt the nation’s business for nine full days – was dignified, serious, understated, filled with self-effacing humor and humility, and completely lacking in any hint of lingering bitterness.

It should also surprise no one that every one of the four eulogists for yesterday’s event – biographer Jon Meacham, former Canadian Prime Minister Brian Mulroney, former U.S. Senator from Wyoming Alan Simpson, and of course, Bush 41’s son, George W. Bush – were all pitch perfect in their remarks, capturing the essence of the man and building on one another until the final climax. It was an historic day – the first time a presidential son was able to eulogize his presidential father – a somber day, and in the end, a joyful day that celebrated not just the career of the man, but also his essential character.

And that, after all, is what Bush 41 will most be remembered for by most Americans: His character, which was marked by overwhelming love and unending forgiveness. His love for his wife Barbara; his family and friends; his cities of Kennebunkport, Maine and Houston, Texas; and for the country he served throughout his adult life.

There is so much to be learned, so many lessons about the wrong way and the right way to do things from these two recent state funerals, and we can only hope that most Americans learned the most from this week’s events.

Paris Burning Watch:

If you thought the Macron government’s decision to “suspend” the implementation of its confiscatory carbon tax for six months would calm the public and end the protests in Paris, well, think again.

Again, it’s important to remember that the motivation behind Macron’s carbon tax is his fool’s effort to meet the emissions targets to which the French government agreed in the Paris Climate Accords. The other key aspect to remember about that agreement is that developing nations were promised $100 billion per year to help them pay to get their own emissions in line.

And here’s the rub:  Most of that money was going to come from the taxpayers of the United States of America. That’s what America’s Worst Mistake – Barack Hussein Obama – committed us all to doing.  Which is why President Donald Trump (I never tire of typing those three glorious words) pulled our country out of that massive wealth redistribution scam last summer.

So, without America and its deep pockets footing the bills for that redistribution, guess who gets to take up the tab? France and the other “developed” nations of Europe, of course, along with maybe a little help from Canada, Australia, China and Japan.

Most French citizens probably haven’t even figured that part out yet. If you think the past two weeks have been troublesome on the streets of Paris, just wait until they all figure out that these massive new taxes aren’t just to try to pay for France’s participation in that deal, but also to help pay for the participation of the same third world countries who have been flooding France and most of Europe with “refugees” over the last decade.

Just food for thought.

From our You Seriously Just Cannot Make This Stuff Up Department:

This is real, I swear it…

You Seriously Cannot Make This Stuff Up, Part II:

Hey, Bloomberg caught onto this reality just yesterday:

So think about this: The #MeToo movement has ensured that in today’s corporate environment, any man who is accused of anything that could be remotely defined to be “harassment” will be automatically presumed guilty and most likely summarily fired by the company, unless he is a very well-known liberal senior executive, in which case it takes a little while longer for him to be fired, plus he gets a huge severance package like Les Moonves.

What, someone really believed that that environment would not create some sort of backlash? Hell, the stuff talked about in that article isn’t even really a backlash – it’s simple self-defense.

And the truth is, this is nothing new – the focus on sexual harassment in the workplace and the need to find ways to avoid it came about in the 1970s. I worked in the corporate world for 40 years, starting in 1979. More than 20 years ago, I made the personal decision to never take a one-on-one meeting with a female peer or subordinate in an office with the door closed. It wasn’t that I didn’t trust and respect the women I worked with – it was just that you couldn’t take the risk of being accused of anything like that. Because once an accusation is made, whether it is true or not, your reputation at that company is forever damaged.

Having said all of that, sexual harassment in the workplace is a despicable act that needs to be punished. It is honestly mind-boggling to me that we are here in the year 2018, after 40 years of focus on this issue, and there are still men who think this kind of boorish behavior is somehow acceptable. It isn’t, you clowns.

But the way to punish it is not to suspend rules of evidence and the presumption of innocence for the accused, as the leftists in the #MeToo movement insist. What the Bloomberg article truly demonstrates is that this rush to persecute, regardless of how many innocent people become ensnared, actually does more harm to career women than it helps.

It’s just one more aspect of the political left’s war on women, and that war is very real. The rights of genetic females are being diminished in our society every day.

You have the Democrat Party and its judges fully in support of the effort by our news media and pop culture to normalize Sharia Law and the genital mutilation practices of some Muslim sects; you have Democrats passing laws that allow people with male genitalia to use the same public restrooms as your wives and daughters; you have people with male genitalia and musculature being allowed to take athletic trophies away from little girls and share locker rooms with them at many schools. You have a supporter of Sharia Law serving for two years now as co-chair of something called the Women’s March, and a woman-abusing buddy of Louis Farrakhan recently getting elected as the Democrat Attorney General of Minnesota.

It’s a real war, ladies, and you’re the target. And head’s up: It isn’t conservatives who are fighting it.

That is all.

The Paris Riots are a Rejection of Climate-Imposed Socialism

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

This made my eyes water up a bit. – Here is a poem Sen. Orrin Hatch wrote to George and Barbara Bush in January 2013:

For those who can’t read the handwriting, here is the text:

You are resplendent in years
and worth all the tears
as we worry
and hurry
Through each eventful day
in this great land
made greater still
by God’s firm hand
and your strong will
that searched for the better way
every day

Orrin G. Hatch

Beautiful.

Speaking of Bush 41… – All Americans should commend the late President and his family for not using this week of mourning and remembrance as an occasion for lashing out and settling of grudges, as the McCain family did a few months ago. But then, the Bushes are just a different class of people, aren’t they?

Never one to hold a grudge, Bush 41 insisted that President Trump and First Lady Melania Trump be invited to attend his funeral, for the simple reason that that is the gracious and proper thing to do. You can be sure that the eulogies delivered at the service will not be filled with bitterness and potshots taken at the current President, because that is not how the Bush family has ever done things. Again, just a different class of people.

The same cannot be said for our fake news media, sadly. It is as tiresome as it was predictable that the very same media outlets – and many of the same ageing on-air personalities – who demonized George H. W. Bush while he was Vice President and President have taken the occasion of his passing to pretend to have loved him while using it as an excuse to take shots at Donald Trump.

Even Fox News is participating in this sham. I had to just turn the television off yesterday evening as Bret Baier decided it would be a great idea to spend 10 minutes letting the execrable hacks Juan Williams and Mara Liasson go on and on about how “gracious” they always thought Poppy Bush was. That’s certainly a far cry from the despicable things Williams had to say about him while he was in office serving this country.

The reality is that Bush 41, like every other Republican in modern times, had an extremely contentious relationship with the media, which was almost as fake 30 years ago as it is today. At one point in his 1988 campaign he went so far as to ban Newsweek from traveling on his campaign plane due to that particular outlet’s absurdly biased coverage of him. And who will ever forget Poppy’s on-air shouting match with then-CBS News anchor Dan Rather in January 1988?

These were not people and organizations who loved and respected George Bush then, and they only feign love and respect for him now as a cheap means of attacking the current President.

That’s a truth that we all should keep in mind as this week rolls along and the rank hypocrisy emanating from our TV screens turns increasingly putrid.

Paris Burning Watch:

What? Our fake news media misleading the public on the reasons for all the rioting? How can this be? Oh, wait, nevermind.

NBC attempted to cast the rioters’ rage as class warfare over policies that favor the rich over the poor. ABC told its viewers the riots were caused by a simple “fuel tax”. Neither network dared mention the truth about these riots, which is that they are a backlash against taxes on carbon being imposed thanks to the French government’s commitments made under the Paris Climate Accords.

And guess what? The French are not the only people who are rejecting government efforts to seize their money and property as a fool’s means of “doing something” to fight the nebulous concept of “climate change.”

One of the main reasons why Angela Merkel is stepping down as Chancellor of Germany in the coming months is because the population there has become enraged by the massively higher utility costs imposed on them by Merkel’s Energiewende initiative that attempted to transform the country’s power sector from burning coal to getting electricity from hundreds of thousands of giant windmills.

In Canada, the province of Ontario is suing to halt the imposition of a federal carbon tax that child Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is attempting to impose, a tax that threatens to destroy that country’s economy. Just a few weeks ago, the voters in Washington State resoundingly rejected the Democrat-controlled government’s attempt to impose what would have been the first statewide carbon tax in the United States.

The riots in Paris are just the latest signal that we are coming to a real inflection point in the global climate scam. The Globalist community latched onto what they first called “global warming” and later shifted to “climate change” 30 years ago as their newest rationalization for the imposition of worldwide socialism. It is no accident at all that literally every proposed “solution” to “climate change” for the last three decades involves seizing the money and property of individuals so that the ruling class can “do something” about the “problem,” a problem which constantly evolves and which they can never seem to quite describe in a way the average person can understand.

But despite their increasingly shrill and desperate efforts at brainwashing, the public has never embraced this “climate change” as an issue of major concern. In every poll taken that asks voters to list the issues they are most concerned about, “climate change” always, without exception, ranks at or near the bottom.

And in reality, the globalists don’t even buy into their own rhetoric. As I pointed out yesterday, not one single signatory nation to the Paris Accords has met its emissions reductions obligations as of this point. Not one. Most of those countries – which includes every country on earth except the United States – have in fact seen their emissions rise significantly. They don’t even buy their own BS.

So, as all the elitist globalists flew on their carbon-emitting private jets into Poland for their latest multi-million dollar climate conference boondoggle, they were faced with 30 years of frustration at their efforts to impose socialist “solutions” and a growing backlash coming from those being imposed upon. This is where things become dangerous because history tells us that when leftists become frustrated, their sense of entitlement tends to turn them violent. We have certainly seen that here in America over the last two years, with the Democrat Party basically creating the violent Antifa movement following the 2016 elections.

Make no mistake about it: A few election losses and some riots in Paris will not deter these people. They believe they basically have a “divine right” to rule, and in their minds, any means are justified by the ends.

Stay vigilant.

The Week in Revew: Democrats/Media Shift Focus Away From Robert Mueller

The Campaign Update Week in Review

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

This was the week that the media/Democrat narrative mysteriously shifted away from Robert Mueller. After a couple of weeks of renewed, post-election focus on Mueller and his fake “investigation”, the media/Democrat axis of propaganda suddenly shifted to climate change, and then back to the border issue, and the 5,000-plus “migrants” from Central America overwhelming the infrastructure and public patience in Tijuana, Mexico.

This is very odd, since the Climate Scam is where the American Left always goes whenever it has run out of anything else to say. “Climate Change” is always their issue of last resort because of its nature as an ever-evolving set of theories that conveniently allow the scammer to blame literally anything that happens in our daily lives on “Climate Change”.

All those people fighting over cheap TVs at your local Wal-Mart on Black Friday? Climate Change. Riots happening in Paris, France? That’s not caused by tax protesters, it’s caused by Climate Change. Record, bitter cold across the midwest and northeast? Climate Change – never been cold up there before. Your car wouldn’t start yesterday morning? Climate Change. Brian Stelter’s disappearing hairline? Climate Change.

It’s all Climate Change all the time, and that’s why the Axis of Propaganda invariably ends up focusing on it for at least one week every year because all of their other fake narratives have come up a crapper.  Thus, this week, a week when it became increasingly obvious that Robert Mueller has a huge bag of nothing where President Trump is concerned and is continuing to systematically wrap up his 19-month witch hunt, the media and their Democrat masters fell back on their old, reliable fright tactic.

The fake news media has also been forced to report on migrant invasion happening at our Southern border after a couple of weeks of attempting to ignore a story that is hugely damaging to Democrat interests. With even the media now admitting that more than 75% of these giant “caravans” consist of military-aged males, many of whom are known violent gang members, and with President Donald Trump tweeting and talking about it each and every day, the post-election effort to simply ignore it became impossible to maintain.

There are reports this morning that several hundred of the migrant army in Tijuana will attempt to storm the border crossing there later today, so CNN will gladly report on that, hoping to get films of violence that are that fake news network’s stock in trade. Of course, CNN will only air any such video if it can spin the shots negatively against U.S. Border Patrol and military personnel who will be there to turn back the invasion.

Which is what this is.  An invasion.

Let’s go to the rest of this Week in Review:

  • It was the week that all the focus on Climate Change and the migrant invasion took preening CNN peacock Jim Acosta right out of the news cycle, and that was a glorious result. America needs more of this.
  • It was the week that Oklahoma beat West Virginia by a score of 59-56 in a college football game in which neither team’s defense apparently ever took the field of play.
  • It was the week that yet another Obama-appointed federal judge ruled that President Trump, as opposed to all other presidents in U.S. history, lacks the authority clearly given to him in the text of the U.S. Constitution.
  • It was the week that the Chief Justice of the U.S. Supreme Court, the man who twisted himself into legalistic knots in order to impose Obamacare on our populace, lied to the American public by claiming there is no difference between an “Obama judge” and the judges appointed by other presidents.  Shame, Justice Roberts, shame on you.
  • It was the week when the White House Correspondents Association ended the tradition of having a bad comedian speak at its annual Dinner, giving yet another win to Donald J. Trump.
  • It was the week that our fake news media invested tons of its air and print time once again trying to convince the American people to care about the killing of a radical Islamist blogger who used to go to dinner parties hosted by editors at the Washington Post. The effort failed. Again.
  • It was the week that President Trump correctly chose to refuse to destroy our country’s key strategic relationship with Saudi Arabia over the killing of a radical Islamist blogger who the Saudi government considered to be an enemy of the state.
  • It was the week that Broward County’s Supervisor of Elections, Brenda Snipes, having tried and failed to steal the state’s senate election for Democrat Bill Nelson and the governor’s election for Democrat Andrew Gillum, tendered her resignation in disgrace. Now, if there is still any justice left in Florida, she will be prosecuted.
  • It was the week that Democrats expressed their outrage at all the subsidies and tax breaks given by the states of New York and Virginia to secure the new Amazon regional headquarters sites, while in their next breath confirming their support for subsidies and tax breaks for solar and wind power and billionaire Elon Musk.  *sigh*
  • It was the week that British Prime Minister Theresa May took her “Brexit” deal to European Union headquarters, a deal that will essentially keep Britain under the EU’s despotic thumb. To no one’s surprise, the EU approved. Sellout is Theresa May’s middle name.
  • It was the week that French Prime Minister Emmanuel Macron, barely a week removed from denouncing Donald Trump and populism at a summit conference in Paris, saw riots break out on the streets of Paris and his personal approval rating fall to below 20%.
  • Meanwhile, in America, it was the week that President Trump saw his approval rating in the daily Rasmussen survey tick up to 51% and stay there.

There’s a message in there somewhere – wonder if the Boy Prince of Paris can see it through all the smoke rising along the Champs Elysee’?

That is all.

The Church of Mueller: The Left’s Latest Fake Religion

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

It is in the nature of the human existence to want to believe strongly in something, to believe in something bigger than one’s self, to want to work towards a higher calling, to be a part of some movement that works for the betterment of mankind. This desire to believe leads billions across the face of the earth to seek to belong to a wide variety of actual religions, which worship a variety of gods.

Being, as they are, opposed to actual religions, those who inhabit the political left constantly engage in the process of inventing new, fake religions in which to believe. The fake, leftist religions come, as real religions do, with entire sets of dogma, which leftists like to refer to as “talking points”, “slogans” and “chants,” along with god-like figures to worship and satanic figures to demonize.

The best early example of a leftist religion was of course communism, whose dogma found its basis in the teachings of Karl Marx. In modern times, this particular leftist religion has morphed into “progressivism” and now the “Democrat-Socialism” led by raging nitwits like Alexandra Ocasio Cortez. These are more acceptable tags for the American public to accept, but the ideas pushed by them all are the same.

Global Warming became a leftist religious movement, this one led by an actual Pope-like figure, Al Gore, beginning in the late 1980s. That one morphed into “Climate Change” in the early 2000s when it became obvious even to the believers that the world is not in fact warming, and indeed was about to move into a long cooling phase. Plus, calling it Climate Change has the advantage of being more inclusive, and as we sit here today pretty much everything bad in our lives, from bad breath to forest fires to snow storms to hurricanes to the heartbreak of psoriasis has been blamed on the all-seeing, all-knowing, all-powerful Climate Change.

Climate Change has in fact grown into such a global religion that it even has its own heretics, which the believers refer to as “deniers.” These deniers are shunned the community of government grant recipients and cocktail parties hosted by Gore, Michael Mann and liberal newspaper editors. That’s the price for pointing out the fact that Greenland hasn’t melted and hurricane events have become less frequent over the past 20 years despite all the media hype, and sea levels are rising at the same pace at which they have been rising since the end of the last ice age.

There have been many other examples of this leftist religion-inventing – the religion of “Intersectionality” being a great recent example – but we must get to the point here.

The newest leftist religion is the Church of Robert Mueller.  That’s right:  Special Counsel Robert Mueller is now a deity to the American Left. There’s really no question about it.

Wednesday night, several hundred leftist faithful made a pilgrimage to Times Square where they engaged in a “protect Robert Mueller” demonstration. They chanted repetitive slogans just as Tibetan monks chant “ohmmmmmms” during their daily meditations. They activated the flashlight app on their i-Phones and held them up in unison during a moment of silence. It was like a Led Zeppelin concert, only without all the marijuana and fire hazards created by Zippo lighters.

They shared the dogma of their religion with one another, and with any reporter who asked them questions: “Robert Mueller must be protected.  Robert Mueller must not be fired by the evil Orange Man (the Orange Man is this religion’s version of Satan).  Robert Mueller must exist forever.  Robert Mueller must be allowed to complete his investigation – his investigation must go on for as long as the Orange Man is President.”  On and on and on.

The latest bit of dogma from the Church of Mueller is that the President of the United States not only cannot fire Robert Mueller (he can, for any reason he chooses), the President cannot appoint anyone to the office of Attorney General who has ever expressed a skeptical thought about the god Mueller or his “investigation”, which is the equivalent of this religion’s Ten Commandments. (This dogma only applies to the devil Orange Man and will never be applied to any Democrat successor, of course.)

Commandment 1:  Thou shalt not collude with Russia (this does not apply to the DNC or the Hillary Clinton campaign)

Commandment 2:  Thou shalt not be a Russian entity that makes posts on Facebook or Twitter

Commandment 3:  Thou shalt not be a minor Trump campaign functionary with a Greek name who is targeted for spying by James Comey and Peter Strzok

Commandment 4:  Thou shalt not be an easily smearable target named Roger Stone

Commandment 5:  Only those who have given money to Hillary Clinton or Barack Obama may become disciples for the Church of Mueller

Commandment 6:  It is easier for a camel to pass through the eye of a needle than it is for the Orange Man to escape the all-powerful subpoena power of the God Mueller

…and so on and so forth.

Even better, clingers to the Church of Mueller actually believe that it was somehow “unconstitutional” for the evil Orange Man to appoint Matt Whitaker to become acting Attorney General after he had fired Jeff Sessions. They actually believe that Whitaker is somehow unqualified for the job because he has in the past expressed the same skepticism about Mueller and his “investigation” that has been expressed by renowned legal scholars like Harvard Law Professor Alan Dershowitz and George Washington University Law Professor Jonathan Turley.

The Church of Mueller faithful actually believe that the appointment of Whitaker to the AG position somehow amounts to a “constitutional crisis”, as if they actually know what that term even means. But hey, they don’t need to know what any of this means, because these are matters of religious faith.

As is the case with all of these fake leftist religions, the Church of Mueller ignores a key central truth, which in this case is that Robert Mueller has the safest job in Washington, D.C. today.  Matt Whitaker was not appointed to fire Robert Mueller, although he is likely to exercise some real oversight over his fake investigation, oversight that Rod Rosenstein has been unwilling to exercise for the last 17 months.

It has been obvious for 16 months now that Mueller has a big bag of nothing where his “Russia collusion” fantasy is concerned, and that his efforts to mount some sort of “obstruction of justice” charge against the evil Orange Man amounts to little more than spitting into the wind. It has been equally obvious for two months now that Mueller has been systematically winding his investigation down, as he has agreed to accept written answers to his reduced number of questions from the Orange Man and has let at least five of his Clinton/Obama disciples to go forth and seek other employment.

The evil Orange Man has expressed his lack of any interest at all in firing Robert Mueller literally hundreds of times over the last 17 months, yet the Church of Mueller faithful remain unconvinced. Because, as with any real religion, the devil is always the deceiver.

Normal Americans with real lives can only marvel at all of this and wonder what false deity these sad people will cling to next after, around the first of the year, Mueller sends his final report over to acting Attorney General Matt Whitaker and allows the remainder of his flock of Clinton/Obama disciples to seek new paying opportunities.

They’ll still probably be counting votes down in Broward and Palm Beach Counties at that time, so maybe the Church of Mueller faithful can concoct a new fake religion around Andrew Gillum or Bill Nelson.  Seems likely to me, anyway.

That is all.

Man, if this TargetSmart bunch has an accurate means of estimating early vote turnout, this is going to be an epic Red Wave.  TargetSmart, by the way, is a Democrat polling firm…

In Phoenix, Republicans are doing better in every city ward than they did in 2016. Bad news for nutjob Democrat Kyrsten Sinema…

This just happened in the world of media bias…

Ok, this is funny.  And sadly accurate…

 

That is all, for now.

Hollywood Is Dead, And That’s Great For America

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

  • If you tuned in to yesterday’s Campaign Update, you know that I warned you all that this new Jennifer Lawrence vehicle titled “mother” was going to be Hollywood’s next big stink bomb.  Lo and behold, just a few hours after I posted that piece, film critic Rex Reed – who has got to be about 150 years old at this point – published his review of this flick, which he calls the worst movie of the year, possibly of this century:   “This delusional freak show is two hours of pretentious twaddle that tackles religion, paranoia, lust, rebellion, and a thirst for blood in a circus of grotesque debauchery to prove that being a woman requires emotional sacrifice and physical agony at the cost of everything else in life, including life itself.” That, my friends, is a stink bomb.
  • Pity poor Rex, though:  I knew the film was going to suck just from reading the director’s statement on how he derived its plot;  Mr. Reed had to sit through the atrocity before he could pen his review of it.  So I definitely got the best of this deal.
  • Hollywood as we have known it for the last 100 years is dead.  It is dead because it is now an industry filled by empty people who have never had an original thought in their entire lives.  It is dead because these empty people are no longer able to turn out films to which the common man can relate, because these empty people have lost all ability to relate to the common man.  It is dead because everything turned out by Hollywood today is entirely derivative of something Hollywood has already turned out before (thus, last year’s inexplicable remake of Ben Hur; thus, this year’s 6th or 7th installment of Pirates of the Caribbean), and because the impulse by these empty people to fill their works with leftist political lectures robs their derivative works of all possible entertainment value.
  • Jennifer Lawrence is kind of cute.  She can sort of act.  Nobody gives a flying rat’s ass what she thinks about climate change or race relations.  People want to buy tickets to movies that entertain them – which explains why any cartoon film with Minions in it will do spectacular box office – not to films that lecture them.  If people want to be lectured, they can go pull up any random YouTube video of Hillary Clinton promoting her new book.  Note to Hollywood:  Nobody does that.
  • Hollywood as we have known it is dead, yes it is.  It survived for years thanks to America’s seemingly insatiable appetite for mindless blockbusters based on mindless comic books.  The box office for those blockbusters enabled leftist, anti-American producers to continued doling out millions of dollars to leftist directors to produce unappealing, box-office disaster films filled with leftist propaganda starring modestly-talented, sort of cute leftist actors.
  • But those days are gone.  America’s appetite for mindless comic book blockbusters has run its course, and Hollywood has suffered through two straight record summer box office disasters the last two years.  When even The Rock is no longer a guarantor of box office success – as with this summer’s disastrous remake of Bay Watch – you know the goose that has laid all these golden eggs is running out of steam.
  • It’s not just movies, it’s television, too.  There was a time when Norman Lear could make a sitcom filled with liberal propaganda, and 25% of the American public would be standing around water coolers and break rooms the next day talking about what Maude or Archie Bunker had to say the previous evening.  Now, if a sitcom attracts 2% of the public for an audience it has had a gigantic night.
  • Hollywood has lost its influence because its little bubble-contained culture became completely antithetical to the real American culture over the last 40 years.  Ordinary Americans became sick of having their values lampooned and sensitivities insulted at every turn, and gradually began to realize they could change the channel or simply quit paying to see these awful flicks at the theaters.
  • This is all a great thing for American society.  It means our culture is generally healthy, because a culture that rejects obvious scams and blatant disregard for common values is a culture that remains strong at its base.
  • The strongest sign of the health of America’s core culture came this week when Tuesday night’s benefit show headlined by a broad array of Hollywood leftwingers managed to raise $14.5 million for hurricane relief.  That same evening, George Strait, the all-American country singer, held a separate event along with a few of his fellow country singers and raised $20 million.  Meanwhile, the all-American football player J.J. Watt has managed to raise more than $31 million all by himself.
  • There is a message for Hollywood leftists in all of that, and that message is that ordinary Americans are sick of you clowns.  The fact that a film like mother even got made tells us that Hollywood has not received this message.  And I’m cool with that.  You should be, too.

Just another day in dying Hollywood America.

That is all.
