Dan Crenshaw Provides a Glimpse Into a Combat Veteran’s Memorial Day Thoughts

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

This being Memorial Day, I was real proud of myself because the first thing I thought to do when I got up out of bed was to put up the flag in front of my house. Then I got online, went to Twitter, and the first thing I saw was a thread by Texas Congressman Dan Crenshaw, himself a Navy SEAL and veteran of three deployments to Afghanistan, remembering his fellow SEALs who did not make the trip home. I was going to write something myself this morning, but after seeing this I figure you don’t really need anything from me today.

Much has been written over the years about how reluctant combat veterans typically are to talk about their experiences in war. If you wonder what the combat veteran men and women you have known were thinking about on Memorial Day, Rep. Crenshaw’s thread, copied here so that those who do not habit Twitter can see it, will give you some idea. Please read it all the way through.

Never forget.

That is all.

The Week in Review: Spying, Lying and Eunuchs, oh my!

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

[The week just past as chronicled on the @GDBlackmon Twitter feed.]

The week began with the bag of scum named Preet Bharara admitting he actively plotted to reverse the results of the 2016 elections after Donald Trump was elected. Things got much, much better from there.:

See? There really is good news out there if you just look for it…:

I am so surprised to learn that this could happen in our public schools! said no adult who has ever dealt with the public schools in America.:

This about sums it up, all right.:

What if the Commie Mayor of New York City visited Nevada as part of a presidential campaign exploratory effort and nobody noticed?:

The ineffectual Kirstjen Nielsen got canned, and Larry Schweikart summed it up properly.:

Chris Coons demagogued the Neilsen firing, and pissed me off. Can you tell?:

James Woods with some really strong advice.:

One of the best parts of Twitter is reading all the enraged replies to the Babylon Bee by social justice warriors who are too dim to realize it is a parody account. Priceless.:

This was only the most predictable thing in the world.:

I’m not sure whether to laugh, cry, or just recoil in abject horror.:

The video of activist Candace Owens raking House Judiciary Democrats over their racist coals became the most-watched web-based video in C-Span’s history.:

Attorney General William Barr threw the Democrats and their news media co-conspirators into a panicked frenzy this week with his two days of congressional testimony. It was glorious.:

This happened on Wednesday.:

In the midst of it all, the shameless hacks at CNN just kept on doing what they do better than anybody else in the business, faking the news.:

No, times haven’t really changed much at all. All the racists in the un-doctored version of that photo were Democrats, too.:

GOP Texas Cong. Dan Crenshaw told the truth about Ilhan Omar’s despicable comments on 9/11. Democrats can’t handle the truth, so this tweet touched off a firestorm that raged through the rest of the week. *sigh*:

The Houston Chronicle embarrassed itself with this op-ed.:

AG Barr set the world afire once again with his clear-eyed admission that the Obama Administration was “spying” on the Trump Campaign. Democrats once again recoiled in abject horror at the truth finding its way into the public domain, because of course they did.:

CNN responded in very, very, very predictable fashion. The faked the news. *sigh*:

Oh, look. Bill Kristol thinks he still has “Republican friends.” Isn’t that precious?:

The hacks at Politico tried their best to keep up in the fakenews game by faking the news on…wait for it…a presidential visit to Mount Vernon.  I kid you not.:

Why yes, yes they are.:

Nick Searcy perfectly captures the essence of the Eric Swalwell for President campaign.:

I found the perfect screen shot of CNN’s little eunuch.:

Meanwhile, in news no American with a life gives a damn about…:

That’s a rhetorical question, right, Brit Hume?:

Hoping American taxpayers aren’t looking, makers of non-competitive electric vehicles campaigned to actually increase their already-princely taxpayer subsidies. Because of course they did.:

Also, this happened.:

Thursday was turning into a really epic day…:

Really, really epic…:

Some irrational tweets by mindless leftists require a rational answer.:

AOC decided to come to Ilhan Omar’s defense in a stupendously vapid way that only she could possibly achieve. For those unaware, Dan Crenshaw is a Navy Seal who fought for this country against terrorists in the Middle East, lost an eye in a roadside bomb attack, and is the recipient of a Purple Heart.:

The news of the indictment of Obama’s former White House Counsel was given less than a minute’s air time by the three major fake news networks. No surprise there, right?:

The latest media-created Democrat “Rising Star” was turning poor Beto into a has-been.:

By coincidence, my very thoughtful daughter and granddaughter bought me a fabulous new t-shirt. I’m wearing it, right now, in fact.:

Chevron bought out Anadarko in one of the biggest U.S. oil and gas mergers in the 21st century.:

Adam Schiff, whose home state has been using illegal immigrants as political pawns for decades now, tips off the Democrat/media talking points on Trump’s plan to relocate illegals to sanctuary cities. Hilarity ensuses.:

Speaking of our favorite pendejo, here he is, lying about the ongoing border crisis.:

Sure glad to see the Pentagon has its national defense priorities straight. *sigh*:

This bit of fakenews from Politico hasn’t held up well in light of current events.:

It’s the big one, Elizabeth! I’m comin’ to join you!:

We’ll close the week out with this one. If you want to understand the inner workings of the Democrat/media hive mind, it’s a good read. If you’re a Democrat, you should avoid it, since you might learn something.:

The Week in Review: Mueller Delivers a Dud, Democrat Hopes Deflate

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

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

The week began with the @GOP celebrating St. Patrick’s Day in the most appropriate means possible, with a meme featuring the mug shot of everyone’s favorite El Paso Irishman. Things only got funnier and better from there, believe it or not.:

Rob Christie posts some of the funniest short videos on the Twitter platform. I thought this one was totes awesome.:

After more proof of John McCain’s mendacity in the spreading of the fake Trump Dossier emerged, Donald Trump was being criticized for lashing out at the dead Senator. Not surprisingly, I thought the President’s outrage was completely justified.:

Meanwhile, our next future president from Texas was hilariously lamenting NYU’s hiring of yet another radical leftist activist onto its faculty, which now rivals Harvard’s as the last American bastion of Soviet-style Marxism.:

Is anyone surprised that Dan Rather, the literal inventor of #fakenews, now turns up regularly as a contributor on CNN?:

On Monday, we learned that Fox News had hired Clinton toady Donna Brazile on as a paid contributor. Lanny Davis and Paul Begala were already tied up by CNN, so…:

The very entertaining Larry Schweikart noted a poll that turned out to be a bit of foreshadowing…:

Speaking of foreshadowing, James Woods hits this nail right square on the head.:

Things are not looking up for the presidential aspirations of Mayor Meatless Mondays…:

What do they put in the drinking water up there in the Bronx?:

This is 100% true and cannot be repeated often enough.:

Fauxcahontas was down in Mississippi interfering in another state’s business. Because of course she was.:

This guy should avoid trying to debate the merits of the Electoral College with the great Nick Searcy.:

If this bit of news about Irish Bob surprises you, you haven’t been paying attention. After all, later in the week we found out he fed his child’s poop to his wife as a practical joke. I’m thinking she probably was not amused.:

I’m pretty sure the TSA agent in this disgusting video is Joe Biden in a fat suit.:

Speaking of guys in a fat suit, I give you Kellyanne Conway’s husband, George. Oh, wait, that’s not a fat suit at all, is it?:

This was the only proper culmination for Nick Cage’s amazing career. He should announce his retirement immediately after the movie premieres.”

I’m not a fan of #NeverTrump nitwit Bill Kristol. Can you tell?:

Larry Schweikart does a great job of keeping up with special election results around the country. The Democrats’ rapid lurch to the far, far, far, lunatic left is creating a mini-wave for the GOP this year.:

We interrupt our politics to bring you wonderful news from America’s oil and gas industry.:

I’m not sure either of them is actually sentient.:

George Orwell was a London citizen when he wrote his famous book, “1984”. In today’s London, Orwell’s book would be banned as hate speech and he’d be tossed in prison for writing it.:

Irish Bob O’Rourke isn’t the only political loser who Democrats are obsessed with these days. Stacey Abrams is giving him a strong run for his money.:

Every once in awhile, the #fakenews hacks at Politico get something right.:

It seems like every week along about Thursday I get real tired of Jim Acosta’s crap. This week was no different.:

If you see some guy in a sheep suit seated at the Pai Gow table, eating dirt, that’s Irish Bob.:

When Greg Budell asked a very good question about the lack of coverage in the U.S. news media about America’s final defeat of ISIS, I had the right answer.:

You seriously cannot make these fake news people up.:

This cracked me up.:

As perhaps the world’s most avid fan of the film “Three Amigos” – which is the funniest script ever written – I have to give @Solmemes1 the award for greatest Twitter meme ever.:

Communists are so predictable.:

This bit of economic winning went largely unreported by our fake news media, but is a very key leading indicator of good things to come.:

Sorry. I just couldn’t resist.:

It’s true. And I won.:

Well, that was totally unexpected! said no one anywhere.:

Shameless self-promotion alert! – Robert Mueller sent his final report over to AG William Barr at 5:00 on Friday evening. 37 minutes later, I posted this sage analysis about what to expect next.:

Oh, it’s a joke, all right. A walking, talking, unshaven buffoon of a joke.:

This said it all about @BillKristol.:

This said it all as well.:

When will everyone wake up to the reality that most of these people are in fact themselves child molesters?:

MSNBC’s resident conspiracy theorist Rachel Maddow literally wept on live TV when she learned Mueller had found no evidence supporting the “Russia Collusion” fantasy she has promoted for the last two years.:

Well, they were never to be trusted before, either, so…:

Over at CNN, Brian Stelter was highly disappointed.:

The great James Woods offered the perfect capper to a wonderful week.:

That is all.

Dan Crenshaw, the Anti-AOC, Perfectly Sums Up the “Green New Deal”

The Evening Campaign Update
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Devastation in 280 characters or less. – He isn’t as flashy or bug-eyed crazy as Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, but in his own quiet way, Texas freshman Congressman Dan Crenshaw is every bit the rising star on the right as the infamous, roof-top-dancing AOC is on the left.

After two days of hilarity and 800-word detailed analyses of AOC’s Climate Scam wet dream that she refers to as the “Green New Deal,” Congressman Crenshaw – a rare Republican who actually “gets” the potential power of social media –  took to Twitter this evening to completely dismantle the farce in three short sentences:

Ouch.

OMG, AOC, the ball’s all, like, totally in your, like, court or something. You know?

Here is just how perfectly devastating and succinct Crenshaw’s tweet truly is:

Sentence 1: Gets directly to the critical point that conclusively demonstrates this particular document produced by the Global Climate Scam is not about “climate” at all;

Sentence 2: Lays out the absolute truth about the way socialist/fascist brutes throughout history have always operated – you must first destroy before you can begin to “build” your socialist paradise.  Like Venezuela, for instance;

Sentence 3: Thanks the Democrats for so starkly and absolutely showing their true brutish face to the public, an event so rare in modern times that those of us among the thinking must do everything we can to appreciate and preserve it for posterity.

Thank you, Congressman Crenshaw, for posting what is in fact a truly perfect tweet.

That is all.

Jim Acosta And Beto Beclown Themselves on the Border Issue

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

The ball’s in your court, Alexandria. – Some of you may have seen the tweet issued a couple of weeks ago by socialist dimwit Alexandria Ocasio Cortez in which she said something I actually agree with for the first time:

“Next time we have a gov shutdown, Congressional salaries should be furloughed as well.  It’s completely unacceptable that members of Congress can force a government shutdown on partisan lines & then have Congressional salaries exempt from that decision.  Have some integrity.”

Well, golly, our intrepid Millennial heroine is getting her chance to follow through on her stated belief today, which is pay day for federal workers, and members of congress, too. As Fox News reported two days ago, fully 13 of her freshmen colleagues had already notified the payroll office that they would forego their pay so long as the partial shutdown continues.

GOP freshman Dan Crenshaw from Texas made it 14 with his own tweet yesterday:

But AOC? Well, she has remained oddly silent on the matter.  Turns out that, being the good socialist she is, the stuff that comes out of her mouth applies to other people – the little people, the people out here in flyover country – but not to her.  This whole congress thing is turning out to be a little harder than she thought it was going to be.  Go figure.

Speaking of leftist dimwit heroes… – Even though he no longer holds a political office of any kind, Texas senate race loser Irish Bob O’Rourke is making sure we don’t forget about him as he prepares to announce his inevitable run for the Democrat Party’s 2020 presidential nomination. He’s accomplishing that goal by streaming himself live doing all sorts of things onto his Instagram page, which is followed by thousands of teenage girls, the entire editorial staff of the New York Times and that little bald fat guy who hosts a show on CNN.

Here’s Irish Bob in the kitchen pretending to cook.  Here’s Irish Bob growing a scraggly beard in obvious imitation of Ted Cruz. Here’s Irish Bob putting others in danger as he videos himself while driving a car. Here’s Irish Bob drinking a beer and cussing.

It’s all a frenzied effort by a twitchy guy married to a billionaire to pretend to be just like all you little people, and you can bet it’s working just great, because Democrats do love a good fraud as demonstrated by every guy they’ve nominated for president since Walter Mondale, who broke them of nominating genuine people by losing 49 states to Ronald Reagan in 1984.

Anyway, Irish Bob might have taken the ruse just a tad too far on Thursday, when he live-streamed himself talking about the border security crisis while having his teeth cleaned.  That’s right – I swear I don’t make this stuff up. Nothing says ‘presidential material’ to a Democrat voter like showing the inside of your mouth while a dental assistant scrapes the plaque off of your molars.

Ben Jacobs, a political reporter for The Guardian, had the best reaction when he tweeted, “God, I hope Beto doesn’t need a colonoscopy anytime soon.”

Speaking of presidential material… – Former San Antonio Mayor and Obama Administration HUD Secretary Julian Castro is set to announce his own candidacy for the Democrat nomination in his home city on Saturday. Castro’s probably too genuine a person and has too many actual accomplishments on his resume’ to actually win the Democrat nomination, but if he runs a credible race he could make a strong vice presidential pick for a Joe Biden, Bernie Sanders or Elizabeth Warren, who would need some youth and minority creds to balance a ticket.

And since we’re talking about Texas here… – President Donald Trump flew to the Rio Grande Valley on Thursday as he continues to make the case that the border crisis is real and justifies a presidential emergency declaration if congress refuses to deal with the issue even now that some federal employees are going to miss a paycheck for the first time. He held a couple of events with Texas officials and Border Patrol officers and said all the right things.

But the real entertainment – and strongest proof that border walls that are already in place do work – came from the most unlikely source imaginable.

Increasingly pathetic CNN fake reporter Jim Acosta, obviously frustrated that he is no longer called upon at presidential press availabilities, decided to strike out on his own to stage scenes that he believed would debunk the Trump Administration’s crisis claims. The results were predictably hilarious.

Here’s the first tweet Acosta sent out at mid-afternoon:

So, what does that tell us?  Doesn’t the lack of any activity whatsoever where the wall is already in place actually support the case that the wall is working?  Why yes, of course it does.

Unsurprisingly, Acosta’s idiotic quest produced all manner of funny comebacks – here’s one from Ben Shapiro:

Here’s another – read the logo on the hat closely:

Oof.

Acosta’s basically the biggest fraud working on television today, and an utter dolt to boot.

Hey, he’d make a great candidate for the Democrat presidential nomination!

Are We Ready For John Roberts To Decide The Wall Fight? Because That Might Happen.

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Time to get that wall built.  – President Donald Trump will deliver a nationally-televised address on the border situation this evening at 8:00 p.m. Central Time, at which time it is rumored that the Evil Orange Man plans to declare a national emergency and order the border wall to be financed via the military budget. This would be an entirely reasonable move for the President to make in the face of an obstructionist congress, one he clearly has the constitutional authority to enter into, one that has all sorts of precedent in American history.

But of course, the national broadcast networks and 24 hour fake news channels – all of whom have agreed to carry the speech live after spending most of Monday afternoon contemplating censoring the President – will be filled with shrill leftist talking heads and hosts who will contend the move is illegal and completely without precedent. They are all professional liars, and liars gonna lie.

No doubt, were the President to declare such an emergency, the way it would all play out is highly predictable. Leftists would file suit in California or Hawaii, where some Obama-appointed “judge” would make up a reason to declare the state of emergency unconstitutional, and that judgment would be upheld by the nitwit majority on the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals.  The case would then inevitably go to the Supreme Court, where the four reliable constitutionalist justices would vote to reverse the 9th Circuit’s decision, and our nation would then be left at the mercy of Chief Justice John Roberts.

Roberts would have the choice of doing the right thing under the law, or carrying the water for the Deep State, as he did in his Obamacare decision in 2010, and a couple of other key decisions in 2018.  Not a good situation.

But factually, there is no doubt there is ample reason to declare the border situation a national emergency. The levels of drug trafficking, child trafficking and other forms of human trafficking that take place every day across our southern border are scandalous and society-threatening. Hundreds of Americans die every day and hundreds more disappear every day because of the Democrat Party-enforced neglect of the situation. It is a human tragedy of unimaginable proportions and it is scandalous that the Democrats continue to treat the situation as just another political football to be rolled into their Evil Orange Man agenda.

Democrats demanded the networks give them time to respond to the President’s address tonight.  No word if their message will be delivered by representatives from the Sinaloa Cartel and the MS-13 gang, but it seems likely and would be totally appropriate.

In a seemingly unrelated event… – Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg was unable to show up to hear oral arguments in the Supreme Court chamber on Monday, the first time she has missed a day on the bench in her 25 years on the Court. Ginsburg, 85, is in extremely frail health and recovering from last month’s surgery to remove two cancerous tumors from her lung.

But hey, because she’s a certified member of the Deep State, she’ll be able to just keep voting on the cases during her absence, which she will supposedly judge from reading transcripts of the oral arguments.  In other words, her clerks will be doing the judging, which they’ve no doubt been doing for quite some time now anyway, as Ginsburg continues her grim quest to outlive the Evil Orange Man’s first term in office.

Aw, heck. – Alleged serial sex-abuser Kevin Spacey had his first court hearing in the initial prosecution against him on Monday, and had another run-in with the law as he tried to return home.  Upon leaving Reagan National Airport in Washington, DC on his drive back to his Baltimore condo, Spacey was pulled over by local cops for …wait for it…A SPEEDING TICKET!  I swear I do not make this stuff up.

Texas Rep. Dan Crenshaw has got game. – You may remember Georgia Democrat Congressman Hank Johnson.  He’s the clown who, in a congressional hearing several years back, expressed his genuine concern that, due to its booming population, the island of Guam might actually capsize into the Pacific Ocean.  Think I made that up?  Think again.

Anyway, in a speech over the weekend, the nitwit Johnson had this to say about President Trump and his supporters:

“Much like Hitler took over the Nazi party, Trump has taken over the Republican Party. It’s now known as the Trump Republican Party…Donald Trump’s supporters are older, less educated, less prosperous, and they are dying early. Their lifespans are decreasing, and many are dying from alcoholism, drug overdoses, liver disease, or simply a broken heart caused by economic despair,”

Freshman Texas Congressman Dan Crenshaw, after learning of Johnson’s remarks, decided not to take them quietly.  He tweeted out a video in which he took Johnson to task for his incivility.  Here are a couple of outtakes:

“OK Mr. Johnson, President Trump is a lot of things, but he’s not Hitler.  He didn’t kill millions of people. He didn’t start a world war, he doesn’t have any concentration camps, and to accuse him of being Hitler is intellectually dishonest, and frankly a huge insult to the millions of Jews who died under Nazi Germany.”

But it gets better.  Crenshaw also took Johnson to task for his idiotic, dishonest portrayal of Trump supporters:

“You went on to insult, degrade, and demean tens of millions of Americans who voted for him, to call them drug-addicted, uneducated, unhappy alcoholics — this is a cowardly form of politics.”

Crenshaw went on to challenge Johnson to “pick on someone your own size,” reminding him that “my office will be right down the hall from yours.”

Fantastic.
