President Trump is Laying the Groundwork for Executive Action on the Border Situation

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

There is just no good reason why any average citizen needs to own g…er…knives? – The murder rate in London surpassed that of New York City for the first time ever in February, as Islamic-driven knife killings continue to grow in the gun-banning metropolis.  As of this writing, no one at CNN had asked David Hogg for his views on London’s pressing need to ban knives.  But it seems to be just a matter of time.

Speaking of the ever-more annoying Mr. Hogg, he’s gonna have some ‘splainin’ to do with his CNN masters next time he goes in for an interview.  That’s because on Sunday he made the mistake of posing for a photo with Javier Manjarres, a Republican congressional candidate who is challenging Democrat incumbent Ted Deutch.

As if the sin of paling around with a – gasp! – Republican wasn’t damning enough in the eyes of everyone at the fakest of all fake news outlets, Hogg’s error was made even more unforgivable by the fact that Manjarres was wearing a t-shirt that depicts President Donald Trump urinating on the CNN logo (see below).  Oh, my, CNN might have to go find itself another gun-banning teenager to exploit.

Headlines we never saw during the Obama years… – The Wall Street Journal reports that the big economic issue facing Iowa and much of the rest of the American midwest is that there are too many jobs and not enough workers to fill them.

According to the Journal:

“It is a problem playing out in many parts of the Midwest, a region with lower unemployment and higher job-opening rates than the rest of the country. Employers, especially in more rural areas, are finding that there are just too few workers. That upends a long-running view in Washington, D.C., and many state capitals, where policy makers often say the unemployed simply lack the skills to get hired.”

Should the pace of economic growth and job creation experienced in the 14 months of the Trump Administration continue for another 14 months, this midwest-based “problem” will inevitably spread to other parts of the country.  This is an almost inevitable outcome as the overall economy approaches full employment.

Of course, there will be exceptions to the rule, isolated pockets of the country where chronic unemployment levels will persist and people will remain addicted to the public dole.  Those pockets of economic under-performance are easy to predict:  They go by names like Chicago, Washington, DC, Baltimore, Detroit, Los Angeles, San Francisco, New Orleans, Philadelphia and other big cities that have been governed by Democrats for decades.  It’s the way Democrat politicians like it to be.

DACA is dead, and NAFTA could be next, if Mexican officials don’t act to halt the caravan of more than 1200 Central American nationals that has been making its way through their country unimpeded over the last few days.  At least, that’s what President Trump said on his Twitter feed yesterday and early this morning, and as we have seen so many times in the past, the President doesn’t just toss stuff like this out there for no good reason.

The tweet storm began on Sunday morning, with these two Presidential messages:

“Border Patrol Agents are not allowed to properly do their job at the Border because of ridiculous liberal (Democrat) laws like Catch & Release. Getting more dangerous. “Caravans” coming. Republicans must go to Nuclear Option to pass tough laws NOW. NO MORE DACA DEAL!”

and..

“Mexico is doing very little, if not NOTHING, at stopping people from flowing into Mexico through their Southern Border, and then into the U.S. They laugh at our dumb immigration laws. They must stop the big drug and people flows, or I will stop their cash cow, NAFTA. NEED WALL!”

Mr. Trump expanded on this theme with three more tweets this morning, concluding with:

“DACA is dead because the Democrats didn’t care or act, and now everyone wants to get onto the DACA bandwagon… No longer works. Must build Wall and secure our borders with proper Border legislation. Democrats want No Borders, hence drugs and crime!”

So, after 7 months of publicly holding out hope that the cynical Democrats might want to make a deal in which DACA gets extended in exchange for wall funding and other immigration reforms, the President has finally figured out that the Dems never had any intention of making any such deal, preferring instead to keep the DACA kids in limbo so they can exploit the issue in the November midterm elections.  Ok, he knew that all along, but it’s good to see him abandoning all pretense, and calling things as they really are.

The problem the President has here is that there is literally no reason at all to expect the Senate Republicans to “go nuclear” or even lift a finger at all in an effort to change the immigration laws.  At least half of the GOP caucus in the senate favors chain migration and the insane “diversity lottery” system in their eagerness to attract campaign money from the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.

Sadly, it is up to the President alone to stop the ongoing invasion coming across our southern border.  If the President wants to build his long-promised wall, he’ll have to find a way to get it done using his emergency powers and the defense budget, as we discussed last week.  Expecting Paul Ryan and Mitch McConnell to do anything about it is just a waste of time and energy.

Given the President’s past use of his Twitter feed as a prelude to taking action, we should expect him to take some form of emergency executive action to address the border situation in the coming days.

Just another day in the southern invasion continues and congress doesn’t care America.

That is all.

It Was a Big Fake News Weekend for America’s Fake News Media

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Tired of all this Winning yet? – Three new polls were released this past week showing that, despite the ongoing anti-Republican onslaught by the fake news media, the generic congressional preference measure leading into the mid-term elections continues to narrow.  On Sunday, Fox News released its new Opinion Dynamics poll, which shows the measure narrowing from a 15 percent Democrat advantage in November to just 5 percent today.  Marist also released its latest survey, which also pegs the Democrat edge at 5 percent.  A couple of days earlier, Reuters/Ipsos said its newest data shows the Democrat lead down to just 3 percent.

Make no mistake about it:  The Democrats do currently have a real advantage in voter enthusiasm, and we see evidence of that every day.  That edge is likely higher today than it was a week ago in the wake of the GOP congress’s passage of that horrific Omnibus bill on Friday.  But more than 6 months remain until Election Day, so President Donald Trump and the GOP have plenty of time to create some voter enthusiasm on their side as well.

President Trump has repeatedly proven himself to be capable of doing that.  The rest of the GOP?  Not so much.  Still, if we are still seeing congressional preference polls with such narrow margins come November, Democrats will find themselves disappointed yet again when the vote counts start coming in.

Yeah, so, who’s counting? – Speaking of Democrat voter drive opportunities, the “March for our Lives” rallies took place on Saturday, and the fake news media did all it could to glorify all who took part in them, and vilify all who did not.  Because, after all, that’s what today’s fake journalists get paid to do.

Immediately after the rally in Washington, D.C. had concluded, fake news media outlets breathlessly reported the attendance to have been as high as 800,000, which, if accurate, would have made it the largest such rally in D.C. history.  Organizers of the event had been a little more conservative in their estimates of the crowd size, pegging it more in the range of 500,000 to 600,000, which would still be a record for those who are keeping score at home.

Unfortunately for everyone, an independent, non-political firm out of Virginia begs to differ with those estimates.  Digital Design & Imaging Service, which uses flyover imaging of such crowds as the basis for forming its calculations, told CBS News that the turnout for the event was more in the range of 200,000 at its early-afternoon peak.

That’s still a big bunch of people, and wasn’t it just great seeing all those teenagers exercising their constitutionally-guaranteed freedom to protest against…um….well, ok, they were protesting against their constitutionally-guaranteed freedoms.

Meanwhile, Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel, whose gross incompetence and shameful grasping for money led directly to the tragic school killings that germinated Saturday’s protest marches, still has a job.  As always seems to be the case when abject failures by leftwing government officials lead to tragedy, no one who was really responsible is being held accountable.  The fact that Israel still has his job more than a month after the atrocity that his negligence caused is an insult to every American.

Facebook is losing favor with the public, according to opinion polls in the U.S. and Germany published over the weekend.  The only question I have is, why?

Of all the fake scandals made up by our fake news media hacks at CNN and elsewhere, this ongoing attack on Facebook may well be the fakest of them all.  There is literally nothing new in what Facebook is being accused of having done in its unethical sharing of user data with the Cambridge Analytica firm.  Nothing.  Not one damn thing.

Facebook has been unethically sharing its user data with all manner of firms and political campaigns pretty much since its inception.  Numerous former Obama campaign officials have now publicly stated that they had exactly the same access to your Facebook data during the 2008 and 2012 campaigns.  The fake media knew about this, even reported on it, and there was no scandal about it.

The only difference today is that Cambridge Analytica temporarily did work for the Trump Campaign, an unforgivable act of evil in the collective hive mind of the fake journalist fake profession.  Thus, Facebook, whose own evil minions worked as hard as they could possibly work to tilt the 2016 election in favor of Hillary Rotten Clinton, has suddenly become the fake media’s favorite whipping boy.

The truth about this fake scandal is that, had Cambridge Analytica done work for the Clinton Campaign, none of you would have ever heard of them.  There is no scandal here, there is only fake news at its very worst.  Far be it from me to want to defend the sleazebags who run the Facebook scam, but this episode really has taken the practice of fake news to a whole new level of fakery.

Just another day in fake news America.

That is all.

The McCabe Firing Must be a Beginning, Not an End

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Down goes McCabe!  Down goes McCabe!  Down goes McCabe! – Sweaty swamp snake Andrew McCabe got his formal walking papers from Attorney General Jeff Sessions last night, one day before he turns 50 and his lucrative federal pension was about to kick in.  Despite the buttoned-down bureaucratic nature of the decision, based as it was on an Inspector General investigation and a firing recommendation from the DOJ Office of Professional Responsibility, the fake news media went into full fakery mode, declaring that this firing of a single well-documented bad actor means that President Donald Trump “is at war with the FBI.”

Over at MSNBC, the geriatric Andrea Mitchell, who has been faking the news since the Nixon Administration, issued this tweet in her self-described role as a “McCabe supporter”:

Remember, this is a person who wants you to believe she reports the “news” for a living.

McCabe himself didn’t take the news very well, issuing a long, self-serving statement that had obviously been carefully written by communications professionals, in which he portrays the President as the devil and himself as pure as the driven snow, and is fully consistent with the prevailing Democrat/media narrative on the matter.  Here’s a couple of paragraphs:

“This attack on my credibility is one part of a larger effort not just to slander me personally, but to taint the FBI, law enforcement, and intelligence professionals more generally,” McCabe said. “It is part of this Administration’s ongoing war on the FBI and the efforts of the Special Counsel investigation, which continue to this day. Their persistence in this campaign only highlights the importance of the Special Counsel’s work.

“For the last year and a half, my family and I have been the targets of an unrelenting assault on our reputation and my service to this country,” McCabe continued. “Articles too numerous to count have leveled every sort of false, defamatory and degrading allegation against us. The President’s tweets have amplified and exacerbated it all. He called for my firing. He called for me to be stripped of my pension after more than 20 years of service. And all along we have said nothing, never wanting to distract from the mission of the FBI by addressing the lies told and repeated about us. No more.”

‘War with the FBI’, ‘Trump has attacked me’, ‘Trump’s tweets are the problem’, bring the family into it because it helps build public sympathy, yada yada yada, blah blah blah.  All the hallmarks of a statement written by reliable leftist talking points monkeys, probably the same ones who wrote the script for all the programming on CNN and MSNBC last night.

Here’s the truth about Andrew McCabe and all the other swamp snakes and skunks who were involved in the DOJ/FBI Cabal’s efforts to fix the 2016 election for Hillary Clinton and then to hamstring the Trump presidency:  Firing them and/or reassigning them is not enough.  Denying them their pensions is not enough.  Humiliating them on the Donald Trump Twitter feed is not enough.

It will never be enough until these people – each and every one of them, without exception, is prosecuted to the full extent of the law and tossed into federal prison for the rest of their lives for the damage they have done to our country.  And that includes not only the bad actors at the FBI and DOJ – it includes all the bad actors at the Obama White House like Susan Rice and Samantha Power and Loretta Lynch and even Barack Obama if the conspiracy can be shown to have risen that high.  It also must include the fake journalists at the various fake media outlets who knowingly coordinated efforts with the cabal, and there is plenty of evidence that numerous fake journalists did so.

The truth here is that the firing of McCabe must not be the end of this tale, but the beginning of an effort to finally, once and for all, de-corrupt the FBI and DOJ after 8 years of their having been utterly corrupted by a corrupt president and his lackeys.  The truth is that the Trump White House needs to truly be at war with elements within the FBI and DOJ, and winning that war will require the good people who remain in those institutions to join the battle.

Hopefully, Jeff Sessions is up to that task.  The decision to jettison McCabe is a positive sign, though we should now expect the fake news media to start mounting assaults on Sessions’ character now that he has publicly taken a side.

For America to become truly great again, the firing of Andrew McCabe must be remembered as the first symbolic shot fired in what will become a long and brutal legal battle to recapture the nation’s soul.  Otherwise, it will go down in history as a meaningless futile gesture of a democratic republic destined to crumble.

Just another day in the game is afoot America.

That is all.

The Hillary Clinton Excuse Generator Doll Humiliates Itself in India

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

[Ok, it was actually Hillary Clinton who humiliated her own self in India, but seriously, someone needs to manufacture a Hillary Clinton Bobblehead Excuse Generator Doll.  Just pull the string and it spits out one of 100 excuses for losing the election.  You’d sell a billion of them, promise.]

The Pantsuit Princess was in the news on Monday for rolling out yet more excuses for why she lost the presidential election in 2016.  If you thought she had already blamed everyone else in the United States of America for her failure except for herself, boy, were you wrong.

Speaking to an audience in India, of all places, where the great majority of the population is poor, uneducated and unproductive, the Coughing Crook blamed her loss on people who are poor, uneducated and unproductive.  Oh, and they were all racists, too.  No kidding:

“There’s all that red in the middle, where Trump won. Now, I win the coasts, I win Illinois, Minnesota, places like that. But what the map doesn’t show you is that I won the places that represent two-thirds of America’s gross domestic product. So I won the places that are optimistic, diverse, dynamic, moving forward, and his whole campaign, Make America Great Again, was looking backwards. ‘You don’t like black people getting rights, you don’t like women getting jobs, you don’t want to see that Indian-American succeeding more than you are, whatever your problem is, I’m going to solve it.'”

Oh, but it gets better.  The 100% self-absorbed, 0% self-aware Fainting Felon, who has spent much of her adult life claiming to be a champion of women’s rights, went on to claim that any woman who voted for Donald Trump did so only because their husband or their boss told them to do so.

Then, as if to prove beyond all remaining doubt (could there really be any at this point?) that she was indeed the very worst candidate for any elective office in American history, the Grasping Grifter proceeded to stumble down the steps leading out of the venue, despite being held up by two men.  We can expect her to blame the incident on the two men, who no doubt told her to stumble, a demand that she, as a mere woman, had no ability to resist.

Never stop talking, Hillary.  Please, never stop.

The House Intelligence Committee announced Monday evening that it has concluded its year-long investigation into allegations that the Trump Campaign “colluded” with Russia to influence the 2016 elections, and found zero evidence to support the claims.  Combined, the three major network newscasts devoted less than 1 minute of coverage to that bit of news.  If this surprises you, you probably get your news from the evening network newscasts.

San Fran Nan stammered through a condemnation of the Committee’s move, slamming Speaker Paul Ryan for not keeping the investigation going into perpetuity.  Because, of course, the Democrats’ goal whenever there is a Republican in the White House is to always have myriad fake investigations into fake scandals going simultaneously.  This is especially true when GOP policies are producing things like jobs and economic prosperity.  It’s the Democrat playbook, right there on page 359.

The Democrat playbook also demands that they and their myriad fake journalist press agents continue to demonize Committee Chairman Devin Nunes (Low-IQ Maxine Waters carried out that task on MSNBC Monday night), and that bug-eyed Adam Schiff produce a minority report filled with classified information, which the administration will have to heavily redact, giving the Democrats and the fake news media the excuse to scream “coverup!”  Yes, it’s tiresome, yes, it’s incredibly dishonest, but what do you expect Democrats to do, focus on policy?

Hah!  That’ll be the day.  Focusing on policy got deleted from the Democrat playbook way back in 1992, when Bill and Hillary got elected to their co-presidency.  It will never return, trust me.

Speaking of fake news outlets, economic prosperity and jobs, the fakest #fakenews outlet of them all, CNN, just keeps getting faker as time goes along.  For years, CNN had kept an updated online “jobs tracker”, which provided monthly updates about the number of jobs added or lost by the U.S. economy during the George W. Bush and Barack Hussein Obama administrations.

But updating the tracker has amounted to just too much good news for President Donald Trump over the last year, as the Trump economy has kept adding new jobs at an accelerating pace.  So, the fake journalists at CNN just couldn’t take it anymore, and decided at the first of the year to stop updating the tracker.  That is sad, pathetic and hilarious all rolled up into a tight little fake news ball.

Just another day in the Democrat playbook America.

That is all.

Whining, Drunks and Prostitutes – How Much Lower Will CNN go to Keep its Collusion Narrative Alive?

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Tired of all this Winning yet? – We’ve all been wondering how it is that Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel, the single most incompetent law enforcement officer ever put on public display, still has his job.  Perhaps we should wonder even more about Jimmy Kimmell.  Why does this clown keep getting invited back to host the Academy Awards Ceremony?  It was bad enough that the ratings for last year’s program came in at a 9-year low.  But Sunday’s 2018 version of the ceremony completely collapsed, coming in at 16% below last year’s terrible ratings, a whopping 41% down from 2014, and reaching an all-time low.  Maybe, just maybe, this year’s ratings will convince the organizers of the event to hire a host next year who is an entertainer, rather than just another social justice warrior.

Little Jimmy’s in time-out, and he doesn’t much like it. – My daughter, who is a wonderful mother, has three rules for her two precious daughters:  No whining, no whining, and noooo whining!

Poor little Jimmy Acosta, CNN’s preening fake reporter assigned to the White House, broke all three of those rules on Monday.  The man who wants to be Sam Donaldson without having to put in all that hard work or adhere to those pesky ethics isn’t getting enough attention from White House Spokesman Sarah Huckabee Sanders, and wanted to let her know about it.

After Acosta’s shouted question at Ms. Sanders as she wrapped her daily press briefing went unanswered, he tweeted “Third press briefing in a row that @PressSec did not take a question from CNN. ” before rushing to the nearest CNN camera so he could whine on-air about not being the center of attention.  This guy must have been a real handful for his mother when he was a toddler.

Sanders, as always keeping her sense of humor about the petulant bunch of nitwits she must deal with every day, responded on her own Twitter account with  “Courage isn’t taking “a question from CNN,” Jim. Courage is combat veterans Sgt. Peck and Staff Sgt. Dwyer – the two heroes at the briefing. “, which is about how you’d expect any good mom to respond to a whining 3 year-old.

So, what was the burning question to which Little Jimmy thought the world needed an answer?  “Do you expect the Justice Department to enforce all subpoenas, Sarah?”  Seriously, that was the question Acosta had shouted at her.  It’s like asking if all paint will dry or whether all Democrats and CNN reporters will lie – of course the Justice Department will enforce its subpoenas.  Why send subpoenas out if you’re not planning to enforce them?

It’s not about #courage, Jimmy, it’s about #irrelevance.  And whining – it’s about the whining.

The Nunberg Chronicles. – But Little Jimmy wasn’t the guy who made the biggest fool of himself in the nation’s capital on Monday.  No, that award has to go to former Trump campaign adviser Sam Nunberg.  Mr. Nunberg spent the entire day submitting himself to a series of progressively more incoherent and embarrassing interviews on CNN and MSNBC, as either he had more and more to drink, or some sort of chemical imbalance became progressively worse.

The main thrust of Nunberg’s ramblings began as defiance  against the abusive process being employed by Special Counsel Robert Mueller, who is using his office to destroy numerous people’s lives, forcing them to incur huge legal bills as he vainly casts about for something to hang on President Trump.  Nunberg, who has been subpoenaed to appear before Mueller’s grand jury, repeatedly claimed he would refuse to do so, until late in the day, when he hinted that he might cooperate after all.  That was during a happy hour-timed interview with CNN’s fake host Erin Burnett, who told Nunberg during the interview that she could smell alcohol on his breath.

Nunberg denied he’d been drinking, which may be true, but no one believed him.  He might want to reconsider that denial, because when you think about it, the least damaging explanation he has available to somewhat excuse his behavior is that he had a couple of martinis over lunch and said a lot of stuff he didn’t really mean.  All other possible explanations just become progressively worse.

Back to CNN, the fakest of all the #fakenews outlets has actually sent reporters over to Thailand to interview a prostitute from Belarus who claims to have information about collusion between the Trump campaign and the Russians during the 2016 campaign.  This move came after CNN spent several days referring to the woman as a “Russian prostitute”, indicating that the fakest #fakenews outlet doesn’t even know that Belarus is not, in fact, Russia.

The fake journalists at the fakest #fakenews outlet apparently consider this prostitute to be “credible” because she was once photographed with a big Russian muckety-muck who once had a meeting with former Trump campaign adviser Paul Manafort.

The truth, of course, is that CNN will resort to literally anything in order to keep its Trump/Russia “collusion” narrative alive, because that’s the deal the fakest #fakenews outlet has with the Democrat Party.  And if that means interviewing alleged drunks on-air, whining incessantly at the White House press spokesman, or sending fake reporters halfway around the world to interview prostitutes, why, that is what CNN will do.

Just another day in CNN is all fake news all the time America.

That is all.

If Democrats Didn’t Exist, We Wouldn’t Want to Invent Them

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Tired of all this Winning yet? – The Daily Caller reports that, in the cable news ratings race, fake news king CNN did not have a single program in its entire lineup that ranked among the top 20 during the month of February.  When the bad guys are losing, the country is #Winning.

They call it the Yu Darvish 2-inning start bug. – The Los Angeles Dodgers reported that a “flu-like” illness that was causing fevers and vomiting had ravaged dozens of their players Thursday evening, causing Manager Dave Roberts to scramble to find enough players to man the team’s spring training game on Friday.  No word if the flu struck after the team had re-watched film of Game 7 of last year’s World Series against the Houston Astros, but it seems likely.

RINOs in action. – Arizona Senator Jeff Flake, of course appearing on CNN (because who else would bother to interview Jeff Flake?), told his fake interviewer David Axelrod that he fully expects President Trump to have a Republican primary challenger in the 2020 race for the GOP nomination.  The Hill, which is fast becoming the web-based fake news challenger to CNN, thought this was newsworthy, which is almost inexplicable given that Flake announced his retirement late last year because his public approval rating in his home state was hovering in the low teens.

Justice Department leaks move into the theater of the absurd. – The New York Times, Washington Post and Associated Press all “broke” a story on Friday asserting that former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe will be accuse of making improper leaks by Inspector General Michael Horowitz in his report to be released in the coming days.  The “sources” of those stories were – guess what? – improper leaks by personnel within the Justice Department and/or the FBI.  It is highly doubtful any of the liberals at any of those fake news organizations are self-aware enough to understand the high degree of humor and irony present in this situation.

Speaking of theater of the absurd, PJ Media reports that the Obama holdovers at the Library of Congress have invited freaking Bill Nye the Science Guy to speak at a symposium on how to protect our planet from an asteroid collision.  I kid you not.  Mr. Nye, an engineer who has posed as a scientist on television as a host of kid’s shows for 30 years, and more recently become a dedicated climate scammer because it pays better, will be on the agenda with a real scientist, astronomer Dr. Amy Mainzer.  This is a disgrace, and the people who organized this program should be fired without severance pay.

Democrats in action. – Speaking of liberals with no sense of humor, the pinheads at Facebook issued an apology on Friday for threatening to censor a Christian satire site called the Babylon Bee.  Facebook’s evil minions were acting on a tip from their fellow humorless liberal evil minions at the “fact-checking” Snopes website, which had flagged the Babylon Bee as being “fake news.”  Well, of course it’s fake news, you mindless simpletons – it’s SATIRE.  Dear God, people.

More Democrats in action. – Tamika Mallory, who, along with radical Islamist Linda Sarsour was one of the main organizers of the 2017 “women’s march”, came under fire on Friday for having attended a speech by the heinous anti-semite bigot Louis Farrakhan.  She naturally defended herself by…wait for it… endorsing anti-semite hate speech on Twitter.  I swear I don’t make this stuff up.

Still more Democrats in action. – But hey, you’ll have to excuse Ms. Mallory and other Democrat voters for their bigotry.  After all, they’re just emulating their elected leaders.  Take Chuck Schumer for example.  On Wednesday, Schumer announced in the well of the U.S. Senate that he was voting against confirmation of a Trump judicial nominee for the simple reason that he is white.  Oh, he put all sorts of flowery liberal “need for diversity, yada yada yada, blah-blah-blah” rhetoric around it, but there is no escaping the fact that it was a stunningly racist statement.  But it’s always been ok for Democrats to be racist;  otherwise, we’d have never had the Ku Klux Klan.

Just another day in absurd Democrat theater America.

Georgia Republicans’ Show of Spine is Giving Delta a Case of the Blues

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Tired of all this Winning yet? – President Donald Trump’s public approval rating in the Rasmussen Survey is now 50%, seven percent higher than the rating in the same poll for Barack Obama on the same date in his second term in office.  This should not be surprising, given that Obama at that time was having to defend the Obamacare bill, which would take hundreds of billions of dollars away from working Americans, while Trump is currently promoting the Trump tax cuts, which give hundreds of billions of dollars back to working Americans.  Funny how that works, huh?

Democrats in action. – ICE agents were able to round up 150 illegal aliens in the Oakland area on Tuesday, in a roundup of known lawbreakers.  An ICE spokesman estimated that about 850 more known criminals were able to evade the roundup, blaming at least some of those escapes on Oakland’s nitwit Mayor, Libby Schaff, who issued a warning to the criminals to head for the hills on Monday.  This intentional effort to ensure that known criminals remain at large among her city’s population is what leftwingers like Schaff refer to as “protecting the people.”

More Democrats in action. – Bizarre Barbra Streisand told Variety that she had her dog cloned.  Hey, as long as nobody clones Barb, I got no problem with that.

Still more Democrats in action. – U.S. Olympic skier Gus Kenworthy was horrified by the Korean tradition of eating dogs, saying that “Dogs are friends, not food.”  So the skier admirably decided to engage in a little symbolism of his feelings, adopting a puppy from one of the country’s thousands of food dog kennels.  Amerian social justice warriors, upon learning of Kenworthy’s compassionate rescue of the little puppy, reacted very predictably:  They screamed that he is engaging in “cultural colonialism” and hammered him on social media.  Because this is what SJWs do.

He’s been a real bug-eyed bonanza for CNN and MSNBC. – The Daily Caller reports that California Congressman Adam Schiff, the ranking Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee, has now given a phenomenal 227 TV interviews since President Trump took office less than 14 months ago.  According to information compiled by the Republican National Committee, this means that Schiff has been on television more than 26 hours since last January 20.  For all you Millenials out there, that is twice as long as a full season of Game of Thrones.

Speaking of Mr. Schiff, it appears he may be delegating his long-time role as official leaker for the Democrats on the House Intel Committee.  When White House Communications Director Hope Hicks refused to answer certain questions related to the presidential transition process – which the Administration considers to be privileged – in testimony before the committee in closed session on Tuesday, that fact was leaked to the media before her testimony was over by Illinois Democrat Mike Quigley.  So perhaps Schiff has decided to share his leaky wealth.

Delta Airlines has gotten itself into a real pickle down in Georgia.  After Delta engaged in a round of corporate virtue signaling late last week, cancelling a long-time discount ticket arrangement for members of the NRA, the Georgia Senate took up a bill that would retaliate by cancelling property tax exemptions Delta enjoys at its Corporate headquarters in the state.  Delta officials spent all day Tuesday scrambling for a way to retain both their virtue signaling posture and their tax breaks, but thus far the state’s Republican officials are holding firm.

This action by the Republicans in the state is something that would have never taken place in the past.  Up until this time, timid Republicans just sat by and took insults like Delta’s action against the NRA meekly, hoping that, by remaining quiet and hunkered down under their desks, they could avoid any negative attention from the hostile fake news media.  But this is the age of Trump, and Republicans are finally learning from the President that they can win with the public by taking bold, principled stands.  It’s really sad that it has taken until the year 2018 for a very unconventional President to teach Republicans that taking bold action to support your friends is actually smart politics, but hey, better late than never.

For its own part, the NRA issued a statement in which it said that actions such as that taken by Delta are a “shameful display of civic and political cowardice.”  Kind of like the actions of the Broward County Sheriff’s department during the Parkland school shootings.  Couldn’t have said it better myself.

Just another day in singin’ the Delta blues America.

That is all.

Democrats: the Gun-Banning Vampires of American Society

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Tired of all this Winning yet? – After going through what seems to have been a fairly standard 10% correction during early February, the stock markets have bounced back.  The Dow Jones Industrial average rose by 399 points on Monday, and has now regained more than half of the losses from earlier in the month.  Meanwhile, the economy is rolling along so strongly that many economists fear it will create more new jobs than the nation has qualified candidates to fill.  This is what is known in economics 101 class as a good problem to have.  #Winning.

Ryan Seacrest is getting his moment in the #MeToo sun, as his former personal stylist accuses him of all manner of Harvey Weinstein-ish behavior towards her.  Should make for a fun season on the revival of American Idol.  Hey, when do Joe Scarborough and Chris Cuomo get to have their #MeToo moments?

After spending ten days in the wake of the Florida school shootings laughably claiming they didn’t want to ban guns, the Democrat Party has done what it always does, which is demonstrate it was lying in unison.  On Monday, more than 150 Democrats in the U.S. House of Representatives introduced a bill that would ban vaguely-defined “assault weapons.”

If you’re thinking this is a repeat of Dianne Feinstein’s 1990s-era fiasco that sought to ban weapons based solely on what they look like, think again.  This bill would go much further, prohibiting “the ‘sale, transfer, production, and importation’ of semi-automatic rifles and pistols that can hold a detachable magazine, as well as semi-automatic rifles with a magazine that can hold more than 10 rounds. Additionally, the legislation bans the sale, transfer, production, and importation of semi-automatic shotguns with features such as a pistol grip or detachable stock, and ammunition feeding devices that can hold more than 10 rounds.”

If any of that comes as a surprise to you, then you have probably also been surprised over the last 26 years as the Democrat Party and its leftwing activist support base have worked as hard as human beings possibly could to erode your right to free exercise of religion, your freedom from self-incrimination, your freedom from unreasonable search and seizure, not to mention their all-out assault on your first amendment right to free speech in recent years.  But again, none of that should have surprised you, either.

It should not have to be repeated yet again, but here goes:  Anyone who adheres to leftist orthodoxy – as basically every Democrat in America today does – is a budding tyrant.  Their policy choices cannot be supported by facts or logic;  thus, the only way Democrats can gain power and maintain is by lying.  The lies can only be sustained if the public is ignorant, demoralized and helpless.  The way to keep the public ignorant, demoralized and helpless is to control what they say, do and think.  The way to control what they say, do and think is to rob Americans of their constitutional rights.

There.  Print that paragraph out and tape it to your refrigerator door for future reference.

Hey, I thought that whole “mansplaining” thing was supposed be bad. – Meanwhile, the Democrats with press passes at CNN took the whole gun confiscation argument into the realm of the absurd – which is CNN’s main core competency, after all – as law enforcement analyst Tom Fuentes suggested that 52% of the U.S. population (that would be all you women out there, or is it “wymyn?”) can’t own handguns because “they wear skirts” and stuff.  I swear I don’t make this stuff up.  Who could?

In other news, 17 year-old Parkland, Florida motor-mouth David Hogg lobbed out the king of all futile gestures, swearing that he won’t go back to school until the Florida state legislature passes a bill to ban guns.  Uh, ok.  You go, dude.

In all seriousness, does this kid not have parents?  Does he not have even a single responsible adult in his life who gives a damn about him?  Hogg is obviously being fed talking points – anyone who has done communications or public policy work for a living will recognize that reality about him in 3 seconds of listening to the things he recites from memory on CNN and MSNBC every day.  That means that he has gotten himself tied up with either the local Democrat Party or some group of leftist activists, which is essentially the same thing.

Some responsible adult who actually gives a damn about Mr. Hogg needs to sit him down and explain to him that these activists, and the leftwing activists who masquerade as “journalists” on the cable news channels, are not his friends.  They don’t care about him or his future.  They think he’s cute, fairly articulate, and that he currently serves a temporary purpose in helping them hammer Republicans and President Trump.  Once that purpose has run its course – which will take no more than another week or two – all of these people who Hogg currently believes are his friends will drop him like a hot potato and pretend not to know him for all the rest of his natural life.

These people Hogg has gotten himself tied up with are ghouls, the vampires of American society.  They suck the life out of people like Hogg to feed their political purposes, and then discard the lifeless carcass once it has finished feeding their current narrative.  Hogg obviously has been led to believe that his current actions are setting himself up for a career in the media or politics.  That is sadly, horrifically incorrect, and some adult in his life needs to intervene, soon.

Just another day in Democrats are ghouls America.

That is all.

What’s the Over/Under Line on How Many Days Scott Israel Has Left in Office?

The Evening Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

You keep saying that word.  I don’t think it means what you think it does. – Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel told CNN’s Jake Tapper that he has given “amazing leadership” to the County during his time as Sheriff.  In other news, the folks at Taco Bell bragged that they have given “amazing fine dining” to the American public, Harvey Weinstein bragged that he has given “amazing respect” to every woman he has ever met, and Hillary Clinton said that she exhibited “amazing stewardship” over her illegal email server while she was Secretary of State.  Holy cow.

Tapper is being widely praised for his fairly tough treatment of the dissembling Sheriff in Sunday morning’s interview, but let’s don’t go overboard here.  Tapper, after all, is the very same fake host who stood silently by during Wednesday evening’s disgraceful townhall and allowed NRA Spokesperson Dana Loesch be called a baby killer and repeatedly accosted with death threats from the audience, and allowed one kid to accuse Senator Marco Rubio to the killer himself without comment.  So Jake has an awful lot of making up to do for that huge fiasco.

But this is CNN, after all, and as if to make up for Tapper’s sudden attack of momentary objectivity, the dimwitted Brian Stelter did his best to satisfy his Democrat masters by allowing student David Hogg – who has obviously been co-opted by the Democrats and is being fed talking points – to say of Ms. Loesch “She owns these congressmen. She can get them to do things. It’s just she doesn’t care about these children’s lives.”  Neither Stelter nor the all-time fake news king Dan Rather, who was sitting next to the kid, said anything to correct the blatant libel coming from Mr. Hogg’s always-running mouth.

 

While Israel has denied that his department responded to an astonishing 39 calls to the Parkland school shooter’s home in recent years – claiming the number was “just” 23, as if that makes it all better – Buzzfeed now reports that its research indicates the correct number is an even more mind-numbing 45 calls, about which the Broward County Sheriff’s department did nothing.  Zip.  Nada.  That’s pretty “amazing” all right, Sheriff.

In that same interview, Tapper asked the Sheriff when it was that he found out that several of his deputies were on the scene while the killings were taking place, and did nothing to intervene.  Israel’s answer?  “Days” later.  When asked how many days later, Israel said he wasn’t sure.  Yep, that’s pretty “amazing” leadership right there.

In all seriousness, how much worse does this have to get before the people of Broward County storm the the county offices and demand Sheriff Israel’s resignation?  While they’re at it, they might want to start up a recall petition for every member of the school board as well, since, as I pointed out in yesterday’s Campaign Update, the utter and complete failure of local law enforcement in this case is not due to incompetence, but rather due to a conscious policy decision to stop enforcing the laws where school students are concerned in order to improve statistics that determine the level of federal and state funding.

Such a sad situation all around, made infinitely worse by the dishonest ghouls at CNN.

That is all.
