No, Jim Acosta and CNN Did Not Win Their Case Friday

The Evening Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

No, Jim Acosta and CNN did not “win” their case today, so everybody needs to calm down here. 

All the plaintiffs in the case against the White House won this morning was an injunction in which the judge in the case, Timothy Kelly, ordered the restoration of Acosta’s hard pass to the White House grounds while the case is in the process of being heard and decided. Believe it or not, I think this was a completely reasonable action for the judge to take, since it ensures Acosta will not have been unfairly disadvantaged in the event that CNN and Acosta are able to make a compelling case that ends with a ruling in their favor.

Make sense?

Now, in addition to ordering Acosta’s pass to be restored, the judge let it be known that he thinks CNN and Acosta are likely to prevail on their 5th Amendment, due process-based argument that Acosta was not provided with  “sufficient notice or explanation before his credentials were revoked or been given sufficient opportunity to respond before they were.” As it happened, Acosta was actually given no notice at all – he simply showed up at the Secret Service station outside the White House grounds where he normally presents his credentials before entering and was informed at that time that they had been revoked.

While the White House press office spelled out its reasons after the fact, the judge has ruled that this was not sufficient notice.

Judge Kelly also made it clear that he does not believe CNN or Acosta have an unfettered First Amendment-based right to a White House press badge.

Thus, basically what has happened today is that Judge Kelly has forced the White House to put Acosta on probation.  His press badge will be restored while the case is being heard and will be revoked again should the Judge ultimately rule against the plaintiffs.

In the meantime, both President Trump and White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders have promised to write up and publish a formal set of rules for decorum that Acosta and all other fake reporters must follow while on the White House grounds and during press briefings.

President Trump commented on the entire process earlier today in an interview with Fox News’s Chris Wallace:

Trump told Wallace it’s “not a big deal,” saying, “What they said, though, is that we have to create rules and regulations for conduct… we’re doing that, we’re going to write them up right now. It’s not a big deal. And if he misbehaves, we’ll throw him out or we’ll stop the news conference.”

“Nobody believes in the First Amendment more than I do. And if I think somebody is acting out of sorts, I will leave. I’ll say, ‘Thank you very much, everybody. I appreciate you coming.’ And I’ll leave. And those reporters will not be too friendly to whoever it is that’s acting up.”

These White House press briefings have been taking place in their modern format since the mid-1970s.  In all that time, the White House had never had a need to write up formal rules for decorum because the reporters involved were mature enough and had enough respect for the setting and the office of the presidency to know how to behave themselves.  But today, unfortunately, the pack of childish jackals who now make up the White House press corps no longer possess those qualities as a group.

So, just like in any elementary school across America, the rules for behavior will be written up, probably posted on the wall, and anyone who acts up and violates them will be sent to the office for punishment.  It’s pathetic, really, but then again, this is CNN and Jim Acosta we’re talking about here, so of course it is.

That is all.

Vote Faking in Florida and News Faking at CNN: Some Things Never Change

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

So, how about that Creepy Porn Lawyer, huh? –  When he was representing a porn star and suing President Donald Trump, Michael Avenatti was invited to appear on CNN no fewer than 108 separate times.  Since being arrested Tuesday night for allegedly beating his spouse Tuesday evening, CNN hasn’t found it possible to invite the Creepy Porn Lawyer to appear on its fake news TV platform, nor has it managed to file a report on the event.

That little fat, bald guy who is one of their on-air personalities, and whose name I can never remember and don’t care to look up, did manage to include a few sentences about the arrest in his newsletter which is read only by demented rich white women in Manhattan’s Upper East Side, but other than that, radio silence from the news fakers at CNN.  Because that is who they are.

But teacher, the dog ate my vote count! – At a press conference on Thursday morning, Broward County elections officials, i.e, vote-stealing frauds, assured the assembled press that they would have their machine recount completed well before the 3:00 p.m. ET deadline.  But then something funny happened:  They discovered that the machine recount had added to Republican Senatorial candidate Rick Scott’s winning margin by more than 1,000 votes.

Guess what happened?  Broward’s machine recount came in 2 minutes after the deadline, which means, after all of this rigmarole, the official vote total will be what Broward originally claimed it was.

Meanwhile, over in Palm Beach County, the vote-stealing Democrat frauds didn’t even bother to really try to turn in their machine recount, and just started their manual recount, which was ordered in the Senate race by Florida’s Secretary of State, early instead.

The net result of this is that Republican Ron DeSantis is the winner in the governor’s race, although that outcome will not be certified by the SoS until next Tuesday.  So get ready for Democrat loser Andrew Gillum, who still refuses to concede, to file some sort of lawsuit in the meantime.

Rick Scott will have to wait until at least Saturday to claim his victory over detestable Bill Nelson, who will probably also file some sort of lawsuit once the hand recount is completed.

We should not expect the Democrats to let this go until they have completely exhausted every legal angle their evil minds can concoct for the simple reason that there is no downside for them in keeping this alive.  When you have 98% of the nation’s news media faking the news on your behalf and doing nothing but reciting the daily talking points you provide to them, there is no price to be paid for doing everything you can to destroy the nation’s system of free elections, which is what the Democrats have been working on doing for the last 18 years now.

So the madness will continue, most likely until the Supreme Court forces it to end.

One America News Network makes a play for Fox’s fleeing audience. – Back to CNN, you should also expect that fake news network to pursue an appeal on its lawsuit against Donald Trump for his revocation of preening performance artist Jim Acosta’s White House press badge should they receive a negative decision at the District Court level.

The idiots now running CNN’s competitor, Fox News, made the decision on Wednesday to jump in on CNN’s side in the case.  This utterly insane and indefensible decision very predictably caused a huge backlash among Fox News fans, many of whom will now be looking for another news channel to serve as their safe haven from the fake news media.

Enter OANN, the news operation that has found a small but dedicated and growing audience since its inception a few years ago. Obviously smelling an opportunity, management at OANN decided to jump into the lawsuit as well, only by filing an amicus brief supporting the White House’s side of the argument.

Here are a couple of extremely correct arguments in OANN’s brief:

“Acosta does not have a protectible First Amendment interest or right in the context of this dispute,” OANN argued, adding that “while this narcissistic approach may serve Plaintiff’s self-interests as entertainers or media figures and the network that profits therefrom, they do not serve the interests of the forum.”

and…

Acosta “has hindered our free press from functioning effectively during White House briefings,” OANN argued in a court filing, calling Acosta’s behavior “disruptive.”

Awesome.  They should establish a GoFundMe account to pay for the legal fees.  If they do, I’m giving.

CNN probably will get a correctly adverse decision here, given that the judge in the case is not an Obama appointee. The judge in fact is a Trump appointee, Timothy J. Kelly, who was confirmed to his current job in the District of Columbia by the U.S. Senate on September 8, 2017. Judges for these cases are assigned based on a random, lottery-type system, and CNN had no doubt prayed the name of an Obama judge would come up in its case, which would have given them a great chance of prevailing. The drawing of a non-Obama judge means the case will be decided on the law rather than the principles of Saul Alinsky and Democrat talking points, so CNN is no doubt already preparing its appeal to the DC Circuit, whose membership is majority Obama/Clinton appointees.

Of course, CNN’s big problem is that, should they pursue their laughable claim to the bitter end, the bitter end will come a year or two from now in front of the U.S. Supreme Court and its 5-4 Constitutionalist majority. The arguments that a) the White House has no right to enforce standards of behavior on preening fake journalists during press events, and b) Jim Acosta somehow has a constitutional right to a White House press badge so he can continue to disrupt those press events as he pursues his performance art career are going to be tough sells to John Roberts and Sam Alito and Clarence Thomas and Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh.

Judge Kelly is expected to issue his decision this morning, so we will know where this is going soon. If he rules in CNN’s favor, then the White House should simply disband the White House press corps, because it would then be in the completely intolerable position of having no authority to enforce any norms of behavior on what is nothing more than a collection of agents for the Democrat Party. That is simply not something that can be allowed to exist within this White House.

But if CNN loses, expect an appeal because, like the Democrats in Florida, there is no downside for this fake news network in doing so. It helps their ratings, and hey, you can’t harm a reputation that’s already been destroyed anyway.

That is all.

Trump Lowers the Boom on Sessions Even Before the Votes Were Counted

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Hey, guess who’s back? – Anitfa, which is nothing more than the militant arm of the Democrat Party, had had its activities suspended in the run-up to the election, probably on orders from Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi.  Now that the election has come and gone, orders have gone out for this bunch of brain-dead cretins to resume their previous assaults around the country.  Isn’t that great?

So, last night, a group of them assembled on the front yard of Fox News host Tucker Carlson and chanted threats at him and his family – which includes small children – for an hour or so. Such admirable people.  Never forget that they are bought and paid for by the Democrat Party. We have to stop letting the politicians off the hook for this anti-American nonsense.

Speaking of leftist radicals assaulting innocent people… – CNN Democrat activist with a press pass Jim Acosta doesn’t have his press pass anymore.  At least from the White House, which revoked the fake reporter’s press badge after he made a complete ass of himself at a Presidential press conference Wednesday morning, and assaulted a young female White House intern in the process.

The intern, who was just trying to do her job after President Trump instructed her to take the microphone from Acosta, received an Austin Powers-caliber karate chop from Acosta for her troubles.  Were Acosta a reporter for a conservative news outlet, the #MeToo gang would have descended on him like a pack of hyenas, but because he works for CNN, there has been radio silence from that corner of the liberal universe.

CNN, meanwhile, spent much of the rest of its day lying to its audience with carefully-edited video that had Acosta’s assault removed out of it.  Because, of course they did.

But it’s not just Acosta – there is a larger problem here. If you watched that press conference – where the President spent well over an hour fielding 68 mostly-hostile questions from 35 fake reporters – you saw a security problem. With only a few exceptions, you saw a group of at least 60 individuals who literally hate the man they were interviewing. These are people who are enemies of the White House – they are there doing nothing but attempting to damage this presidency. They are agents for the opposition, Democrat activists with press passes, nothing more.

I’ve argued for more than a year and a half now that the White House should end the thing called the “White House press corps”, and deny them access to the White House grounds for security reasons. It is only a matter of time before one of these preening, entitled peacocks goes completely off the hook and assaults Sarah Sanders or even the President.

Any president of either party has an obligation to keep the public informed of his actions and the actions of his Administration, and in today’s age of miraculous technology there are myriad means of getting that done. No president has the slightest obligation to allow a pack of agents for the opposition to have unfettered access to the White House grounds on a daily basis. That’s actually an act of insanity.

Suspending Acosta’s press badge is a good start, but that is all it is. Sadly, the action will probably be reversed today, and the insanity will continue until somebody really gets hurt.

Well, that didn’t take long. – Less than an hour after his meeting with the “press” had concluded, President Donald Trump fired Attorney General Jeff Sessions. This is no surprise, although no one had expected it to happen before all the votes from the mid-terms had been counted. Now we will see if Mr. Trump can hire someone into the job who actually wants to do it. Sessions, sadly, obviously didn’t.

Sessions’ Chief of Staff, former U.S. Attorney Matthew Whitaker, will become acting Attorney General until a permanent replacement is nominated and confirmed by the Senate. Whitaker also now assumes oversight of Special Counsel Robert Mueller and his merry gang of Clinton/Obama hacks. This is interesting, since Whitaker has been publicly outspoken in his belief that Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein has been negligent in his duty to ensure Mueller remained focused on the supposed scope of his investigation, rather than going off on all sorts of tangents as Mueller has clearly done.

Democrats and their agents in the fake news media naturally reacted with joint talking points that would make ordinary citizens believe that, once appointed, a Special Counsel has a lifetime appointment with unlimited scope and powers, because of course they did. Lying is what these people do for a living, after all. New York Congressman Jerrold Nadler, who will become the chairman of the House Judiciary Committee in the new congress come January, threatened to impeach the President should he make a move to fire Mueller, as did Chuck Schumer and other Democrats.

The President is not going to fire Robert Mueller. That’s not going to happen. Mueller has in fact clearly been in the process of winding his operation down over the past few months, and will most likely be issuing a final report sometime in the coming weeks.

On the other hand, the President probably is going to fire Rosenstein, who is clearly a deep state functionary, and we should expect that to happen quite soon, maybe before the week is out. We should also expect the President to declassify a whole raft of key documents once that firing has been carried out. We should then expect the declassification of those documents to lead to a major, final house-cleaning at the Department of Justice, where more than 25 deep state players have already been removed over the past year.

After all of that has happened, prosecutions will finally begin.  That is how this is all probably going to go, and no set of joint talking points recited by Democrats and their fake news media agents is going to stop it.

That is all.

Vote Republican. It’s Your Civic Duty.

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Hey!  There’s an election tomorrow!  I will be live-blogging it here starting at 6:00 p.m. Central Time.  Please join me in the comments section for tons of fun as the results either make me look like the smartest guy on the planet or a damn fool.  Could go either way.

Get out and vote for Republicans. – If you haven’t already done so, get your sorry butt out to the polls tomorrow and vote Republican.  Period.  There is nothing to think about here.  Just find that “Straight Republican” button and hit it. Oh, and then wait and watch to make sure that your voting machine then populates the votes properly, because we have had reports of things not working properly (imagine that).

And yes, vote the straight Republican ticket, regardless of where you live.  I’m in Texas, as most of you know by now, and this is the easiest decision we’ve ever had.  I’m a ticket-splitter from way back, but way back was when there were still decent people running for office as Democrats.  No more.

Anyone who buys into today’s Democrat agenda, which includes stuff like Antifa, assaulting Trump supporters in public places, rampant voter fraud, single-payer healthcare, raising your taxes and open borders, is not a decent person.  Sorry, they just aren’t.  They might be good fathers, loving mothers and otherwise good citizens, but if they support the Democrat agenda, they can no longer be described as decent human beings. That’s what 25 years of running the party on the principles of Saul Alinsky has done for them.

If you have a problem with any Republican candidate, just remember that his or her opponent is a Democrat, and your problem becomes no problem at all. Democrats are not allowed anymore to be independent operators. A guy like Irish Bob O’Rourke is promising to go to Washington and buck the system, becoming an “independent voice” for Texans.

The truth is that Irish Bob would become the de facto third senator from New York as Chuck Schumer leads him around by the nose, telling him not only how to vote on every issue, but also which approved talking points to recite during his appearances on CNN and MSNBC. Hell, if you’re Joe Manchin, Schumer even dictates which lines at the State of the Union speech you can stand and applaud.  Manchin’s a three-term incumbent – you think a rookie from Texas is going to be treated any better?

The same goes for Colin Allred, the guy running against GOP incumbent congressman Pete Sessions.  Allred is a very good-looking and articulate guy, promising to go to Washington and challenge San Fran Nan at every turn on behalf of Texans. The truth is that San Fran Nan would have him wrapped around her crooked little finger about 5 minutes after he lands at Reagan National Airport.  Because Democrats march in lockstep on every issue. Period.

So, if you’re thinking about voting for O’Rourke or Allred, think again.  They’re Democrats.  If you’re thinking of voting for the Democrat (whomever it is) running against George P. Bush for Texas Land Commissioner because you don’t like Bush’s plan to turn the Alamo and surrounding grounds into a glorified amusement park, well, join the crowd.  But do you think the Democrat has a better idea?  Seriously?  What would that be – to turn it over to the federal Department of the Interior for safe keeping?

C’mon, man.  Be serious.

In the past two years, America has embarked on an almost unprecedented period of relative peace in the world and economic growth. The Trump Administration has reasserted American authority at the United Nations, NATO and all the various G-7, G-20 and whatever other G-something or other summits there are these days. The horrendous turmoil in the Middle East that resulted from the Obama-sanctioned “Arab Spring” has been greatly calmed and ISIS has been largely destroyed.

The Crazy Little Fat Guy over in North Korea hasn’t fired a missile in hostility in many months, and his main interactions with the U.S. these days involve requesting more meetings with the Secretary of State and other U.S. representatives to get approval for his next step toward decommissioning his country’s nuclear capabilities.

Russia, which invaded Crimea, Syria and the Ukraine during the Obama years, hasn’t invaded anyone since January 20, 2017.  This is not a coincidence.  China has been helpful with the Trump approach to North Korea, and now appears ready to make a real trade deal after five months of escalating “trade war” with the United States has begun to damage its economy.

So, after you’ve had a couple of cups of coffee and showered tomorrow morning (yes, please shower for everyone’s sake), go vote.  For Republicans.  Straight ticket.  It’s not just the right idea, it’s your duty if you love this country.  It’s the easiest decision you’ve ever had.

And now, for some final predictions:

The Republicans will gain a net 4 senate seats, defeating McCaskill in Missouri, Heitcamp in North Dakota, and some combination of Tester in Montana, Manchin in West Virginia, Nelson in Florida and Donnelly in Indiana.  They will lose some combination of Heller in Nevada or McSally in Arizona.  The net of all of that will be a 4-seat gain and an overall 55-seat majority for the next two years.

In the House, the Republicans hold onto their advantage, losing a net 15 seats.

That’s where I’ve been since January, and I see no reason to change now.

In some specific high-profile races:

Irish Bob “Beto” O’Rourke’s $80 million campaign will buy him 45% of the vote in his race against Ted Cruz.  Four years ago, $30 million got Wendy Davis 39% of the vote.  So, if the Democrats can throw about $125 million behind some chosen golden child in 2022, they might actually win a race in Texas.

But this year, Republicans will win every statewide election in Texas, as they have done in every statewide election cycle since 1994.

Republican Brian Kemp will win 52% of the vote in the Georgia governor’s race, just enough to avoid a runoff there.

In Florida, the early voting is tilting very nicely for the Republicans, who always have a significant voting edge on Election Day.  Based on that, I think Ron DeSantis will eke out a very narrow win in the governor’s race over Democrat/socialist Andrew Gillum there.

Again, I’m either going to look like a genius or a damn fool come Wednesday morning, but we’ll have fun tomorrow night regardless.
That is all.

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: No “Blue Wave” Coming

The Campaign Update Week in Review

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

There is no “Blue Wave” coming, anywhere in America.  No Dodger Blue, no Dallas Cowboys Blue, no Democrat Blue, no blue wave of any kind.  Trust me, folks, it ain’t happening, and it never was.

My goodness.  As I sit here typing this Week in Review this morning, Fox News is interviewing one of the guys in the fake “migrant caravan” down in Mexico.  This guy is an admitted convicted felon, for the crime of attempted murder, and he’s already been deported once.  He’s embedded with this obviously-staged political stunt group, and is telling Fox he expects to apply for a “pardon” when he gets back to America.

*sigh*

What do you even say about that?  If you’re a Democrat, I suppose you say hey, that guy right there is a potential future voter so we need to get his butt back into the good ol’ U.S.A.!  Because that is the essence of Democrat political thought in 2018.

Donald Trump is a man who has Jewish grandchildren.  His son-in-law, Jared Kushner, is a Jewish man and his daughter Ivanka converted to the Jewish faith when the two were married.  Yet today, on all the Sunday morning talk shows, you are going to hear every Democrat talking head blame President Trump for the atrocity that was committed by a deranged, Trump-hating anti-Semite at a synagogue in Pittsburgh, where a Jewish family was celebrating a bris for their child.

Eleven people died there, and four law enforcement officers were injured before the this latest lunatic was finally subdued and taken into custody. It is an unimaginable tragedy, one to which any normal person’s natural reaction is to mourn the loss of precious lives and praise the work of the first responders in Pittsburgh’s law enforcement community.

But not to Democrats.  Democrats’ knee-jerk reaction is to point fingers of blame at political enemies and anyone else they hate – which is an awful lot of people – and rail about the need to take away everyone’s guns.  Because they’re Democrats.  That’s what they do.

With this latest nutjob, the Democrats and their fake media toadies have a real problem.  They’ve spent the last three-plus years pushing their “Trump is Hitler” narrative, yet this guy is a self-described Nazi who hates Trump because “he is controlled by the Jews.”  Ooops.  That just won’t sell well on “Meet the Press” with Chuck Todd or “Sunday Morning” with George Clintonopoulous, so they’re all busily getting their joint talking points in order as I write this piece this morning.

The new narrative will be rolled out later today, and we will all marvel at its lack of any factual merit whatsoever.  So, it’ll be just like all the other narratives the Democrats/fake media have rolled out this week.

Let’s go to the Week in Review:

It was the week that the “President Trump is responsible for the Saudis butchering this Khashoggi guy” narrative crashed and burned because most Americans understand that the Saudi government does worse than that to its citizens on pretty much a daily basis and no one at CNN or the New York Times cares.

It was the week that the obviously-staged “feel sorry for the fake migrant caravan, you heartless Americans” narrative failed because, to most Americans, a growing group of 7,000 people, the vast majority of whom appear to be military-aged males, looks suspiciously like an invasion.

It was the week that the “caravan migrants”, who our fake news media keeps telling us are just a bunch of poor, down-trodden “asylum seekers” turned down an offer of absolute asylum, including healthcare, housing, jobs and food, when it was offered to them by the government of Mexico. Of course they did, because they’re not being paid to stop in Mexico – they’re being paid to get to the American border.

It was the week that a nut in Florida was arrested for “mailing” “bombs” to a bunch of high-profile Democrats, and the fake news media jumped for joy when they found out the guy was apparently, at least, a fan of President Trump.  The only problem with this narrative is that some of the “bombs” weren’t mailed at all, given that the packaging they were supposedly sent in contained no postmarks, and that they weren’t “bombs” at all.  Other than that, great story, guys.  Trust me, there is something more here that has yet to be revealed.

It was the week that the news media swore to us that a mail-bombing nutjob who is half-Filipino and half-Seminole Indian is “white.”  Because that would best fit the media’s narrative, so he must be.

It was the week that soul-crushing dread began to creep into the hearts of leading Democrats (that’s assuming that ghouls like Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer actually have hearts and souls) as early voting numbers from key states like Florida, Arizona, Nevada, Indiana, Tennessee and Texas began coming in unexpectedly (to the Democrats, anyway) favoring the GOP.  So much for the polls.

It was the week that Dodgers Manager Dave Roberts made no less than five indefensible pitching moves in a span of just 2 innings of a single World Series game, marking the 2nd straight year that Roberts had changed the entire direction of a World Series against his own team with horrible pitching decisions.  Roberts was so indescribably awful on Saturday night that he became the first manager in Major League Baseball history to be panned by a President of the United States on social media:

It’s almost enough to make you want to become a Giants fan.  But not quite.  Nothing is ever bad enough for that.

It was the week that America’s Biggest Mistake, Barack Hussein Obama, said the following:  “It shouldn’t be Democratic or Republican to say you don’t try to punish political opponents. Or threaten the freedom of the press just because you don’t like what they say.”  This is the very same Barack Hussein Obama who famously had his FBI bug the computers and illegally search the homes of journalists who were critical of him, and sicced his IRS on opposition political groups.  The very same guy.

It was the week that we found out that NBC had evidence in-hand that would have cleared Brett Kavanaugh from the outrageous “gang-rape” charges while his confirmation process was still ongoing, but decided not to report on said evidence.

It was the week that Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley issued not one, but two criminal referral letters to the Justice Department targeting the Creepy Porn Lawyer and his scurrilous nutjob client, Julie Swetnick.

It was the week that Chris Wallace took that preening peacock Shepard Smith to the woodshed, and it was glorious:

It was the week that overrated and overpaid Megyn Kelly finally got canned by the woman-abusing thugs who run NBC. No one should spend a moment of time feeling sorry for anyone on either side of this particular dust up.

Finally, it was the week that a leader in the Texas Democratic Party was arrested for running a voter fraud ring, and nobody in Texas or anywhere else was surprised in any way, shape or form.  Because that’s what Democrats do.

It was quite a week, a week in which the Democrat/media desperation became so palpable you could cut it with a knife.  There is no “blue wave” coming, and there never was.

That is all.

Well, it took about a year longer than I figured it would, but hey, NBC has very low standards for their on-air talent. – Megyn Kelly appears to have been canned by NBC on Thursday for having violated the rules of political correctness on her extremely low-rated morning program on Tuesday.  The fake news network had been casting around for a good reason to eat the remaining tens of millions left on Kelly’s hilariously-unjustified $69 milllion contract, and she finally provided them with a good enough excuse.

As a refugee from Fox News, and an imperious and obnoxious one at that, Kelly was roundly detested by basically everyone she came into contact with at NBC, and thus had no internal support base to defend her when she made her remarks on Tuesday, which basically amounted to “it was ok for a white kid to dress up as Dianna Ross for Halloween when I was a kid.”

To be clear, not it wasn’t.  Megyn Kelly was a kid in the Albany area of New York in the 1970s and 1980s, and no, it was not ok in the 1980s to put black-face makeup on your white kid and dress them up in an afro and sparkly dress and try to pass her off as Dianna Ross.  That stuff all went out the window in the late 1960s, along with re-runs of Amos ‘n Andy and Jim Crow laws.

Kelly issued a tearful on-air apology on her Wednesday show, which would have been enough for any of the other on-air “talent” at NBC, but could never be enough for someone known to harbor – gasp! – conservative points of view.  Plus, her show was a disaster from day one, so NBC grabbed the excuse to get her off the air and out of its hair.

I do not feel even a little bit of sympathy for Kelly, who is one of the most over-rated people I’ve ever observed in any profession.  But everyone should understand that her treatment by NBC right now is completely biased and unfair.  If NBC wanted to simply fire her because her program is a dumpster fire, that would be totally justified, because that is absolutely the case.  But firing her for making an admittedly stupid on-air comment for which literally no one else at NBC would be fired is wrong.

The truth is that Kelly’s biggest mistake – her “original sin” in NBC’s eyes – was not becoming a wild-eyed leftist on-air when she moved to NBC so she would fit in with all the other on-air talent.  That’s what Alisyn Camerota did when she moved from Fox News to CNN, and she is completely ensconced as the permanent host of a morning show over there that no one watches.  Camerota could say exactly what Kelly said and no one would blink an eye.  Why?  Because she is always mindlessly leftwing in her views, always adheres strictly to the daily DNC talking points, and thus no one at CNN would ever think of her ever intentionally being politically incorrect.

Dang, have I really just written 550 words about Megyn Kelly?  Enough.  Let’s move on.

Speaking of refugees, isn’t it amazing how the fake news media has stopped speaking of them? – Seriously, the obviously-staged “migrant caravan” that had been almost the sole focus of our fake news media for 10 solid days suddenly disappeared from our TV screens entirely yesterday in favor of the incredible un-explosive pipe bomb story.  Funny how that happens, huh?

Well, the “caravan” is still there, still heading up the western side of Mexico, the “refugees” still getting coached about what to say by their Democrat organizers for when they arrive at the U.S. border.  The current size of the caravan is variously estimated to be 3,600 by the Mexican government, 7,000 or 14,000, depending on which fake news media source you wish to believe.  In fact, the Mexican government claimed yesterday that something around 1,500 of the “refugees” who are supposedly fleeing “gangs” in their home country of Honduras have sought and been granted asylum in the gang-dominated failed state of Mexico.  Go figure.

We’re almost two weeks into this story and we have yet to see one single, solitary Democrat express the desire to protect our nation’s sovereign right to decide who we allow to come into our country.  Not one.  Think about that:  I just showed you a video in Monday’s Update of Barack Hussein Obama aggressively expressing his view in 2005 that the U.S. must control illegal immigration.  That’s just 13 years ago, and you can go out to YouTube and see similar videos of luminaries like Harry Reid, Hillary Clinton, Bill Clinton, Dianne Feinstein and Chuck Schumer saying the same things.

That was, of course, before the elevation of Obama to the presidency and the reorganization of the entire Democrat Party on Saul Alinsky Rules for Radicals principles.  Today, instead of pretending to be the protectors of working class Americans, the Democrats favor opening up our borders completely in order to create as much societal chaos as possible and in the belief that these millions of people fleeing failed socialist states will come into America and continue favoring the same failed socialist policies because that is all they know.  They’re probably right, and if they can ever succeed in getting all these millions of illegal aliens voting rights, the Democrats could once again become our dominant political party and implement their long-desired socialist nirvana that would completely destroy America as we know it.

Hell, they’re already making progress in that regard just from all the Californian refugees that have relocated to other states in the past 20 years.  Look around the country right now and you see all these tight races in states like Montana, Nevada, Arizona and Colorado, states that had been reliably “red” states that are now on the verge of turning completely blue.  They also happen to be states that have had large influxes of citizens fleeing the socialist nirvana of California in recent years.

In their political behavior, Californians are no different from these Central American refugees:  They flee their home state due to the high taxes and brutal regulations implemented by the socialist government there which have made it incredibly hard for middle class Americans to make a living, own a home and live a semi-free life.  But, when they arrive in their new state, they just keep on voting for the same Democrat types who created all the governmental chaos that led them to flee in the first place.

That is how you get a down-the-line leftwinger like Montana’s Jon Tester, one of Chuck Schumer’s most reliable votes, positioned to possibly win re-election against a pretty strong Republican candidate.  It’s how you get to the point where the voters in Colorado are about to slit their own economic wrists by passing a ballot initiative that would basically outlaw drilling for incredibly abundant oil and gas reserves there.  It’s how you get a limp-wristed jerk like Jeff Flake representing Arizona, and a neck-and-neck race between a strong GOP candidate who is a true American hero and a radical leftist Democrat who has no real qualifications for the job to take Flake’s place.

Thus, while Democrats everywhere are anxious as they can be to let as many illegals as they possibly can from Central America and all other failed socialist states into our country, the reality is that they are already beginning to achieve their goals simply by continuing to destroy California’s middle class and forcing it to move to other states.  It’s one of the great ironies of our time.

Maybe it is time for leaders in these other states to force anyone moving to their state from California to spend time in some sort of re-education facility before joining the general population.  These people obviously need some de-programming to get the California mindset out of them so that they can become actual productive members of society again.  Call it a matter of self-preservation.

That is all.

Response by the Media and Officials to the Pipe Bombings Follows a Familiar Narrative

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Soon, very soon, perhaps today, there will be an arrest. Law enforcement officials will be quoted in our fake news media as saying that the bombs sent out to various leftist leaders in recent days were the work of one man.  He will be described as a “loner” and a “nut” and probably as someone with known associations to right-wing domestic terrorists. We will probably find out later on that those “known associations” aren’t really associations at all, but vague connections. Later than that, probably after Election Day, we will find out that this “lone nut” was well-known to the FBI, and that he (it’s almost always a “he”) has even been under official surveillance from time to time.

It’s a very good guess, anyway – this is pretty much how these things always go.

Sometimes it really is a “lone nut,” as in the case of the Unabomber and the Parkland school shooter. More often, though, we eventually discover that this “lone nut” had accomplices, as with the Oklahoma City bomber, Tim McVeigh. Sometimes we discover long after the fact that the person arrested was actually a patsy, as in the case of Lee Harvey Oswald, someone who may or may not have had anything to do with the crime itself, but who was actually a part of a larger conspiracy.

Regardless of which scenario eventually turns out to be true in this case, these things always play out the same way over the first 24-48 hours. Most political leaders issue statements consisting of some variations of “we’re all Americans,” ” this kind of terrorist act will not stand,” “we must pull our country together against this terrible enemy,” etc., etc.  Even Hillary Clinton, barely a week removed from saying that Democrats can’t be civil unless Democrats win elections, recited a variation of those sophistries yesterday.  CNN and MSNBC present panels of “experts” who offer endless and often baseless speculation, and 90% leftist talking heads who spout all manner of irresponsible nonsense designed to lay blame at the feet of some boogeyman on the other side. Fox News presents panels taking by and large the opposite views.

The politically-oriented among us obsess about it all, and the other 99% of the population go about their daily lives not knowing what to believe.  The “unity” among the politicians generally lasts 24-48 hours before they start behaving like the talking heads on 24-hour cable news and return safely to their tribes.

So, is this really some “lone nut,” some anti-leftist conspiracy, or is it a fake, October surprise event staged by leftists in order to influence voters who are now going to the polls in early voting?  It is a sad testament to the radicalization of the Democrat Party and its support base that the latter scenario is at least as plausible as the others. Even Wolf Blitzer admitted on air yesterday that George Soros has funded many false flag events in the past.

It is quite the coincidence that this series of bomb mailings comes to light just as it becomes increasingly likely that the Democrats’ “blue wave” appears to be crashing about 100 miles before reaching shore.  Quite the coincidence that polls show a building negative voter reaction to their behavior in the Kavanaugh confirmation process, and to the obviously-staged “migrant caravan” making its way through Mexico. Quite the coincidence that they take place after 48 hours of the fake news media bashing President Trump in unison for his “divisive rhetoric.”

But maybe it is some right-wing lone nut targeting Democrats who have been ginning up so much hatred against President Trump specifically and Republicans in general. The identities of the specific “targets” indicate that it certainly could be.

One thing we do know is that the manner in which these pipe bombs were constructed and packaged indicates they were most likely intended not to explode, and to be discovered by the Postal Service long before they ever arrived at their addressed destinations.  Either that is true, or this really is the work of some low IQ lone nut.

Regardless of who the perpetrator really is, the pattern on these events is clear:  Whenever he is arrested – and he will be arrested soon – the public will be given an initial “official” version of events, most of which we will learn later was either 100% false or had only a tenuous connection to what most people would define as the “truth.” The “truth” – objective truth – will come later, long after Election Day has come and gone.

That’s how these things always go.

As I was concluding this piece, President Trump hit the nail on its head with this tweet:

CNN has been especially guilty of this behavior, and the President’s tweet was no doubt issued directly in response to this incredibly irresponsible statement made by CNN President Jeff Zucker on Wednesday:

“There is a total and complete lack of understanding at the White House about the seriousness of their continued attacks on the media. The President, and especially the White House press secretary, should understand their words matter. Thus far, they have shown no comprehension of that.”

This from the leader at CNN, the network that spent much of the 2016 campaign encouraging the acts of violent protesters at Trump rallies and dog-whistling its approval to potential assassins, and which has been forced to retract myriad false stories and even fire people over all the fake news it puts onto the air.

It is fair to note that CNN is one of the most obvious beneficiaries of this bomber’s actions, since its otherwise-flagging ratings always improve dramatically during national crises such as these. CNN is in fact a network that thrives on chaos and violence, and goes out of its way to encourage such behavior by its viewers.

But at the end of the day, regardless of any other considerations, the person who needs to be punished harshly is the person constructing and mailing these bombs. These are acts of terrorism, and they cannot be tolerated – or encouraged – in any free society.

That is all.

The Democrat Mob is Preparing to Challenge this Election

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Well, of course he is. – Are you ready for Judge Jerry?  Well, NBC doesn’t care if you are or aren’t – you’re probably going to get him anyway.  Yes, friends, The Wrap is reporting this morning that septuagenarian Jerry Springer is working on a deal with NBCUniversal to star in a “daytime courtroom show” that could begin airing in 2019.  Because network TV just hasn’t cheapened the nation’s courtroom system quite enough already. I swear I don’t make this stuff up. Who could?

If you don’t know who Allie Beth Stuckey is yet… – Allow me to introduce her to you.  She’s made her own version of what a Democrat campaign ad would look like if a Democrat candidate were actually being honest about their beliefs and what they plan to do if elected.  It is three minutes of pure greatness:

If you didn’t get about 38 laughs out of that one, you might be brain dead.  Or you’re a Democrat.

Wait, is this a trick question? – How old does a correspondent for CBS’s “60 Minutes” have to be in order to be described as “approaching retirement age?” Let’s go back through a little history:

Mike Wallace worked there until he was well into his late ’80s.

Harry Reasoner did the same.

Leslie Stahl has been at the network since I was a sophomore in high school. Richard Nixon was president when I was a sophomore in high school.

Dan Rather was there until he had be-clowned himself so many times that not even CBS could pretend he as a real “journalist” anymore.

Morley Safer appeared to have passed away in place about 8 years before he was finally removed from the show’s lineup, but nobody noticed.

I bring all this up because the New York Post has a report this morning about the chaos that is reigning at network TV’s longest-running fake news program.  Seems the geriatric natives are getting a little restless over the prospect of having to work for their likely new boss, who will take over after former boss Jeff Fager had to quit over allegations of – you guessed it – sexual abuse and harassment.

The new likely boss, Susan Zirinsky, is a veritable spring chicken in “60 Minutes” world at just age 66. She’s been the boss over at the network’s “48 Hours” program for years, and it seems she must have developed quite the reputation over there, and the veteran “60 Minutes” bunch wants no part of working for her.

Hilariously, one of the Post’s inside sources “noted that at least one was ‘approaching retirement age’ and might have less to lose by threatening resignation.”  That no doubt has all the correspondents at “60 Minutes” looking at one another this morning and saying “wait – there’s a retirement age?”

Speaking of really old reporters who never seem to retire… – I missed this one on Monday, but Carl Bernstein, the former Washington Post reporter who hasn’t done anything worth noting since Watergate, said this in an appearance on CNN (because CNN is the only outlet fake enough to have him on anymore) on Sunday:

“I talked to people … in touch with the White House on Friday who believe that, if the congressional midterms are very close and the Democrats were to win by five or seven seats, that Trump is already talking about how to throw legal challenges into the courts, sow confusion, declare a victory actually, and say that the election’s been illegitimate.”

First, I laughed out loud at how he described his “sources” here – as “people…in touch with the White House.”  What that means is that, if he actually talked to anyone about this, which is doubtful, he has to describe them in this way because his “sources” are not in the White House and are so far removed from it that he can’t describe them even as “insiders” or “people with direct knowledge” of what he’s talking about.  In fact, this could literally describe anyone who has ever made a phone call to someone who works at the White House and left a voice mail. Think about it.

Anyway, the likely truth here is that Bernstein didn’t really talk to anyone other than his handlers within the Democrat Party who wanted him to put this nonsense out into the public domain. Bernstein is just the first of what will no doubt become many Democrat media shills spreading this rumor of the White House preparing to challenge the election as we approach November 6.

Why? Because this is exactly what the Democrats are planning to do should they fail to win a majority in the House of Representatives. This is the classic Saul Alinsky “projection” tactic, in which you accuse your opposition of doing exactly what you are doing or, in this case, plan to do.

This is exactly the same as in 2016, when, in the weeks leading up to the election, Democrats and their media shills berated Donald Trump for making a statement indicating that he might challenge the election if it appeared as if massive voter fraud had taken place.  Remember how they all told us day after day that even saying such a thing was terribly unpatriotic, even un-American? But then Trump won, and the Democrats have spent the last 23 months refusing to accept the election’s results.

Make no mistake about it: This is exactly what the Democrats plan to do again if they fall a few seats short of securing a majority in the House on Election Day, which I’ve been telling you for months is exactly what is going to happen. Thus, to lay the groundwork for that operation, they have media shills like Bernstein talking up the notion that this is in fact the Republican plan.

Expect to see Bernstein’s fellow Democrat media shills repeating this notion between now and Election Day. If the Democrats didn’t have “projection,” they’d have pretty much nothing at all.

About that “migrant caravan”, the latest estimate is that it has now swelled to 14,000.  It has added 12,000 individuals since it entered Mexico, yet our fake news media continues to promote the lie that it is made up mainly of Hondurans.  So, you’re supposed to believe that the countryside of southern Mexico is just filled to the gills with Honduran nationals.  My goodness.

Late Tuesday, President Trump issued this tweet:

Yes, folks, that is America’s Biggest Mistake, Barack Hussein Obama, in 2005 talking about how strongly he felt about the need to control America’s southern border and our right as a country to self-determine who and how many foreign-born individuals will be allowed to come join us here.  That of course was before he stumbled into the presidency and the entire Democrat Party became nothing more than a Saul Alinsky crisis operation funded by George Soros.

On Tuesday, both President Trump and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo continued to make it crystal clear that this invading army of mainly military-aged males from Mexico and points south will not be allowed to cross into the United States.  The Democrats think this all helps them win the votes of suburban white women, which is the motivation behind the entire crisis operation.  The Republicans are betting that suburban white women don’t want their country invaded anymore than other ordinary Americans.

We’ll get to see who is right in 13 days.  Stay tuned.

That is all.
