Democrat Debates, Round 2 Feature Rigged Match-ups of Front-Runners

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

I demand to be a billionaire! um, will that work too, Rashida? – Michigan Bigot Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib told Fake, er, Jake Tapper yesterday that the economy is not growing because of the policies of President Donald Trump, but because…wait for it…THE PEOPLE DEMANDED IT. I swear I don’t make this stuff up. Here’s a link to the video:

Tlaib Flounders While Trying to Explain Why Michigan Shouldn’t Reelect Trump Given Their Economy Recovery

No, Rashida, that does not make sense. Not at all. Go away.

Hooboy. Here we go again. – The second round of Democrat “debates” take place tonight and tomorrow night in Detroit, to be televised on the Democrat activist channel CNN. So, it’ll be a great night to binge “Fixer Upper” or catch up on all those episodes of “Last Man Standing” you’ve missed or maybe watch a baseball game, which is my plan.

I’m not sure which of CNN’s on-air hacks will serve as “moderators”, but does it really matter? Whichever Democrat activist hacks it turns out to be will assuredly pose only the most painless of softball questions to the various circus clowns on stage, and none of the clowns will make any effort to actually answer the question posed anyway. It would be a far more honest endeavor if CNN just gave each of circus clowns 10 minutes or so to recite their standard talking points, because that’s what they’re all going to do.

The only real question over the next two evenings is whether any of the also-rans can recite their talking points in a manner that might allow them to have a break-out moment, like Kamala Harris had during her first debate at the expense of Creepy Uncle Joe. Harris got a big initial boost from that attack – which turned out to have been mostly false, but hey, she’s a Democrat, so that’s ok – temporarily moving her into second place in a few national polls, as Biden’s own poll ratings cratered.

But in the weeks that have followed that event, Biden has slowly regained his poll standing by largely staying out of the public spotlight (the old Hillary Clinton strategy) while Harris, a terrible campaigner, has utterly failed to capitalize on her opportunity and has fallen back into a weak fourth place.

This is where the Democrat debate process – with just a handful of debates spaced a month apart – plays into Biden’s creepy hands. Biden’s a horrible debater in general, and putting his elderly, highly-plasticized face in the national spotlight is never going to be a good thing for him. So, he is going to need weeks to recover from every one of these debate events, and the DNC process will give that to him. The fact that he’s been able to recover from his first debate fiasco is a firm testament to the laughable weakness of the rest of the Democrat field of clowns.

The field enters this week’s debates in almost the same polling positions they occupied entering the first debates, with two notable exceptions. First, The Commie has cratered over the past two weeks, as his poll numbers have fallen from around 20% to the low teens in the most recent round of polls. Fauxcahontas has now firmly assumed second place, trailing Creepy Uncle Joe by 12-14 points.

Second, Irish Bob O’Rourke, who entered the first debates polling around 4-5%, just behind Mayor Pete, has now cratered so badly that he trails Andrew Yang, one of the three actually interesting candidates in the Democrat field. Irish Bob finds himself on-stage tonight with Fauxcahontas, The Commie, Mayor Pete, the mercurial Marianne Williamson, and an assortment of 0-1%-polling irrelevancies who should have already abandoned their vanity campaigns. Tonight is basically Irish Bob’s last stand – he either finds a way to make himself relevant to the process again, or what little ongoing funding he still has will dry up like a West Texas stock tank in a drought.

As I pointed out last time, the Democrats never leave anything to chance, so both night’s panels have been rigged as battles between front-runners who have been trading polling support with each other in the hopes of improving TV ratings. Tonight’s feature match is between The Commie and Fauxcahontas, and you can bet the CNN “moderators” have been instructed to focus most of their questioning on those two.

Wednesday night’s feature match will be between Creepy Uncle Joe and Harris, obviously. No one else on tomorrow night’s stage is polling more than 3%. Aside from the feature bout, the big question will be whether or not Yang can get more than the 3 minutes of air time he got from the MSNBC goons during his first debate and potentially have a breakout moment.

Readers may remember that I predicted back in March that Yang would eventually become one of the “rising stars” of this field, but backed off of that later after Yang had had several awful TV appearances during which he did nothing but robotically recite talking points. Over the last month, though, Yang has gotten out of that noose provided by his “expert” advisors, and begun speaking more extemporaneously. Not surprisingly, we’ve seen his polling numbers begin to creep up as a result.

If he can get fair treatment from CNN’s fake “moderators” – and that’s a very big “if” since the people at the DNC are scared to death of an outsider like Yang – he could finally have the breakout moment he needs to boost his campaign on Wednesday.

Tulsi Gabbard, the only other actual interesting person in the Democrat field besides Yang and Williamson, is also on the Wednesday stage. She also was given very little opportunity to speak by the MSNBC goons, and we’ll just have to wait and see if she is given any more chance on CNN. Given that the folks at the DNC hate her as much as they hate Yang, it’s highly doubtful.

Otherwise, we just have to hope for as much air time as possible for Williamson, just because she’s so damn entertaining.

That is all.

Dr. Drew: 80% of California Coast Infested With Human Feces

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

This Friday interview by Laura Ingraham with Dr. Drew Pinskey has received the blackout treatment from our fake news media since the problem is for the most part due to yet another failure of Democrat-pushed policies.  Those policies are turning the coastal Pacific into a cesspool of human waste.

Take a look at the video clip here – a transcript follows below for those of you who still like to read:

Here’s a partial transcript of the key points:

Laura Ingraham: Well, it’s not really smoke on the water, it’s poop in the water. A new report is finding that human and animal feces are contaminating some of America’s most popular beaches. The nation’s dirtiest? Well, you’ll find out that outside of LA, for California as a whole, nearly 80% of the state’s beaches had at least one day with fecal matter above EPA safety levels.

Here now is Dr. Drew Pinsky. Dr. Drew, some are pushing back against this study, but do these findings seem plausible to you?

Drew Pinsky: Oh, absolutely. What’s going on here in Southern California, I can tell you precisely what’s happening here. There is an organization out here called Heal the Bay which keeps tabs on safety of our beaches in Southern Calfornia, from Orange County to Ventura. Since the rains last Winter, [Heal the Bay] has been giving our beaches C’s to F’s, and F means completely overrun with fecal bacteria. What comes with that are other things like syringes, Hepatitis A and other infectious diseases.

Now, I spoke to a representative at Heal the Bay. His explanation was all the runoff from the fires… the fires that caused about 2 dozen homes to get disconnected from the sewage treatment plant. [Obviously an absurdity]

Laura, there are 60,000 people defecating directly into our gutters every day. Urinating, defecating, bleeding. Their sewage is going directly into the ocean. We’ve had a massive die off of sea mammals in the spring, and for goodness sakes, if a city the size of Pasadena   suddenly became disconnected from our sewage treatment plant that where do you think the environmentalists would be on that? They would be screaming bloody murder. Where are they now? Where are they? This is a catastrophe. It is exposing all of us to potential, really serious infectious diseases.”

I was a lifeguard on those beaches back in the day – I know what’s going on when water gets bad…Runoffs happen all the time, but this was a consistent contamination of our water, and why shouldn’t it be? As many as 80,000 people are contributing directly into the LA River, into the Santa Ana River Basin. These river let out – guess what, where do they let out? Into the Ocean.

Laura: There’s also a problem with Mexico, pumping their raw sewage into the ocean. I did a report on this, I think it was 20 years ago. Terrible problem with raw sewage from Mexico, floats up to the San Diego beaches, and that’s been a persistent problem for a long time.

You mentioned the homeless crisis in California. This YouTube star named “Flecas Talks” hit skid row to show just how horrifying the situation has become [shows video clip].

Watch the rest of the video. It’s something all Americans need to see.

That is all.

Bombshell: Dan Coats Out, John Ratcliffe In At ODNI

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

This is a big, big deal:

Congressman Ratcliffe can now expect to be demonized by the Democrats and their toadies in the fake news media because, well, that’s what they do. But Ratcliffe, a former U.S. attorney who is in his third term in congress, is well-qualified for the job and any of the 53 Senate Republicans who oppose his nomination will do so at their own political risk.

The departure of Coats, a long-time establishment Republican DC Swamp rat, has long been considered to be crucial to the process of declassification of key documents necessary to get at the truth of what really took place within the Obama DOJ/FBI/CIA/State Department during the runup to the 2016 elections. Coats has long been an impediment to that process, and you can tell the character of a man by looking at who his friends are.

For example, here is what ex-FBI Director and current National Teenage Drama Queen James Comey had to say upon learning of Coats’s “resignation”:

Then there is Democrat Senator Mark Warner of Virginia, who got caught in the fall of 2017 soliciting damaging information from Russians in a recorded phone call, and has spent the last two years doing his best to cover up for Comey, John Brennan, et al:

There will no doubt be much more high praise for Coats from the four murky corners of the DC Swamp today, but you get the picture.

Here is why getting Coats out of his position is so key to declassification: the Office of the Director of National Intelligence has the final say on what documents will and will not be declassified and released for public viewing. Signoff from the DNI is the last step in the process, and the presence of Dan Coats in that job is one of the main reasons why the process has been held up thus far.

The function of the ODNI is to coordinate efforts between the nation’s alphabet soup of intelligence and law enforcement agencies. The directors of all of those various agencies all have the opportunity to object to the declassification of any document that is somehow relevant to their operations. Any director who does so must justify their objection to the DNI. If the DNI agrees with the justification, it then becomes his job to communicate the decision to the President.

Rumors have long circulated that Coats has essentially served as a rubber stamp for the worthless FBI Director Christopher Wray and any other agency director who has wanted to hold up the process.

Thus, the firing of Coats – and make no mistake about it, this was a firing – was essential to the ultimate success of getting the truth out to the public. Wray still remains, but he can now be neutered by an effective and honest DNI.

So, you should expect an absolute war over the nomination of Ratcliffe, because the Democrats and their media toadies are unalterably opposed to the public getting the truth about the Obama-era illegalities. Sadly, you will no doubt see some Senate Republicans take a similar stance. If the Swamp can get to four of them, Ratcliffe’s nomination could be torpedoed.

The good news is that Ratcliffe and the President must have been assured by Mitch McConnell that the votes to confirm him are there; Otherwise, he would not have accepted the nomination.

Let’s hope so. The success of this nomination is vital to the entire process.

That is all.

Some More Actual Facts About Baltimore

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

As our fake news media once again tries to paint President Donald Trump as a “racist” for daring to speak the truth about the rank squalor in a Democrat-run city, here is what the New York Times had to say about it in a piece published in March of this year, a piece titled…wait for it…”THE TRAGEDY OF BALTIMORE”:

“On April 27, 2015, Shantay Guy was driving her 13-year-old son home across Baltimore from a doctor’s appointment when something — a rock, a brick, she wasn’t sure what — hit her car. Her phone was turned off, so she had not realized that protests and violence had broken out in the city that afternoon, following the funeral of Freddie Gray, the 25-year-old man who drew national attention eight days earlier when he died after suffering injuries in police custody.

As she saw what was happening — fires being set, young people and police officers converging on the nearby vortex of the disorder — she pushed her son, Brandon, down in his seat and sped home.”

Oh.

“Guy grew up in an impoverished, highly segregated part of West Baltimore near what was now the focal point of the street clashes,”

Oh.

“Policing in Baltimore, Guy and many other residents believed, was broken, with officers serving as an occupying army in enemy territory — harassing African-American residents without cause, breeding distrust and hostility.”

Oh.

“But in the years that followed, Baltimore, by most standards, became a worse place. In 2017, it recorded 342 murders — its highest per-capita rate ever, more than double Chicago’s, far higher than any other city of 500,000 or more residents and, astonishingly, a larger absolute number of killings than in New York, a city 14 times as populous.”

Oh.

“…elected officials, from the governor to the mayor to the state’s attorney, struggled to respond to the rise in disorder, leaving residents with the unsettling feeling that there was no one in charge. With every passing year, it was getting harder to see what gains, exactly, were delivered by the uprising.”

Oh.

“It takes remarkable fortitude to remain an optimist about Baltimore today. I have lived in the city for 11 of the past 18 years, and for the last few I have struggled to describe its unraveling to friends and colleagues elsewhere.”

Oh.

“I have grown accustomed to scanning the briefs column in The Baltimore Sun in the morning for news of the latest homicides; to taking note of the location of the latest killings as I drive around town for my baseball coaching and volunteering obligations. In 2017, the church I attend started naming the victims of the violence at Sunday services and hanging a purple ribbon for each on a long cord outside. By year’s end, the ribbons crowded for space, like shirts on a tenement clothesline.”

Oh.

“Explaining all this to people outside Baltimore is difficult, not only because the experience is alien to those even in cities just up or down the Interstate from us (though a handful of cities elsewhere, like Chicago and St. Louis, have experienced their own waves of recent violence, albeit less dramatically than Baltimore).”

Oh.

The New York Times is obviously staffed by nothing but racists. It’s the only conclusion one can possibly reach based on the clamor going on in our fake news media today.

Elijah Cummings’ District is a “Third World Country.” – Bernie Sanders

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

Democrats and their toadies in the fake news media are once again trying to label President Donald Trump as a “racist,” this time because he had the temerity to point out the truth about the squalid conditions in the West Baltimore congressional district represented since the time of Moses by Elijah Cummings, who happens to be a black man.

Here is a video of the conditions the President was talking about:

Baltimore is by and large a hell hole, but it is not alone. All one has to do is look at the list of cities that have been run exclusively or almost exclusively by Democrats for the last half-century to see that Baltimore has plenty of company on America’s list of failed/failing cities.

That list would include Democrat-run cities like Detroit, Chicago, Philadelphia, Washington, DC, New Orleans, San Francisco, Los Angeles and many more. Democrat policies and governance lead to the squalid conditions that characterize much of Elijah Cummings’ district in Baltimore. Democrat politicians do nothing to improve such conditions, and in fact work to keep them in place because the most reliable Democrat voter is a poor, dependent Democrat voter.

This is simply a fact of our American existence. It is nothing new. It is why a rank demagogue like Elijah Cummings, despite having never accomplished a thing in his entire career that improved the lives of his constituents, just keeps getting re-elected to “represent” them every two years.

Indeed, in 2015, Democrat presidential candidate Bernie Sanders likened Cummings’ West Baltimore district to a “third world country,” and, standing with a group of Democrat city leaders, went on to say this:

“Anyone who took the walk that we took around this neighborhood would not think you’re in a wealthy nation. You would think you’re in a third-world country. What we are talking about is a community in which half of the people don’t have jobs. We’re talking about a community in which there are hundreds of buildings that are uninhabitable.”

After the same outbreak of street violence that led to Sanders’ visit to West Baltimore, President Barack Hussein Obama his own self referred to the rioters as “criminals and thugs.”

Oh.

But again, Baltimore is far, far from alone. Think of what we have seen from Democrat-run cities in just the past few years:

In San Francisco, the city council’s legalization of pooping and peeing on the streets have very predictably led to a huge downturn in the city’s convention industry, as conventioneers for some reason don’t want to walk down sidewalks filled with human waste. Hard to imagine, right? How long will it be before the Democrats and media start labeling those fleeing conventioneers as “poopophobes?”

Oh, and the funniest thing about the San Fran poop situation is one of the “solutions” Democrat city leaders adopted earlier this year: Publishing a “poop map.”  Swear to God.

In Los Angeles, Democrat policies encouraging an explosion in the city’s homeless and illegal alien population has already led to outbreaks of previously-eradicated diseases like measles and tuberculosis, and now threaten to bring back…wait for it… the BUBONIC PLAGUE. I kid you not. 

Democrat policies in Portland, Oregon banning the police from doing anything effective to stop Antifa rioters have predictably led to… wait for it… MORE ANTIFA RIOTS.  You just cannot make this stuff up, folks.

Elijah Cummings’ district is indeed by and large a squalid hellhole in which few people would ever want to be stuck living. The dirty secret that your fake news media won’t tell you is that is exactly how he and his fellow Democrats want it to remain.

That is all.

Dear Adam Schiff: About That Whole “Money Laundering” Thing…

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

Adam Schiff, the bug-eyed, pencil-necked chairman of one of Nancy Pelosi’s House kangaroo court committees, told the cackling shrews on “The View” on Friday that he would use his clown-car committee to go after allegations of Trump “money-laundering” now that the whole Mueller Witch Hunt charade has miserably collapsed.

As he always is when leveling his disgracefully dishonest allegations against the President, Schiff was totally non-specific about exactly what he thinks it is Mr. Trump has done that would remotely constitute “money-laundering,” meaning that he’s just moving the Democrat goal posts onto yet another fantasy play. But hey, if Schiff is truly worried about chasing real money-laundering, there is a very clear-cut case of it sitting out there on the public record that is indeed ripe for a congressional inquiry.

That clear-cut case, if the public record is to be believed, relates of course to the machinations engaged in by the Hillary Clinton Campaign and the DNC throughout much of 2016 in the funding of the compilation of the infamous Steele Dossier.

Again, if the public record exposed by various investigations over the past two years – but studiously ignored by the Mueller Witch Hunt – is to be believed, here is how that all went:

– The Hillary Clinton campaign cobbles together $11 million and routes it through the DNC, which it then fully controlled;
– The DNC, having served as the first cutout in the scheme to hide the money, then funnels the $11 million through a big, powerful DC law firm;
– That law firm, having served as the second cutout, then takes its cut of the money and routes the rest through the firm called Fusion GPS;
– Fusion GPS, having served as the third cutout in the scheme to hide the money, then takes its cut and routes the rest through a British spy named Christopher Steele;
– Christopher Steele, serving as the fourth cutout to hide the money trail, then takes his cut and routes the rest of the funds to a bunch of foreign agents, most of whom reside in Russia;
– These foreign agents, serving as the fifth level of cutout to hide the money trail, then take their cut and spread money around to other foreign agents, looking for stories to feed to Steele;
– Steele then creates infamous Steele Dossier and feeds it back up through the chain, which we now know was the true germinating event for the entire “Russia Collusion” fantasy play the Democrats have put our nation through for the last three solid years.

That, Mr. Schiff, is a course in Money Laundering 101.

Go for it, dude.

The Week in Review: WINNING. Sooooo Much Winning.

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

Tired of all this #WINNING yet? – Late Friday evening, the U.S. Supreme Court reversed the absurd lower court ruling by an Obama-appointed judge denying the President his clear constitutional authority to redirect unused funds from the military budget towards the building of the wall along our southern border. Let us never forget that the building of that wall was fully authorized by the U.S. Congress during both the Bush and Obama administrations, and those bi-partisan bills were signed into law by those two ex-presidents.

For now, $2.5 billion in funding is freed-up to begin construction on at least 100 miles of new border wall, although the ACLU, in its never-ending efforts to obstruct everything the Trump Administration does, vowed to move to accelerate a separate case it has pending before the ever-reliable 9th Circuit Court of Appeals. Thus, the shameful, un-American Lawfare effort set up by the Obama Administration in its waning days will continue in this case.

Tired of all this WINNING yet? Part II. – It has been a week of extraordinary WINNING for President Donald Trump and his administration. Soooooo much winning that it’s seriously hard to know where to begin. Let’s look at a few of the more notable items, starting with the most obvious:

The Mueller Witch Hunt is now officially over and dead. – Try as the Democrats and fake news media might to pretend otherwise, Robert Mueller’s moribund, doddering appearance before two kangaroo court congressional committees this week ended any thought that his despicable investigation would provide some sort of roadmap to impeachment, as the DC Swamp had hoped it might. Oh, the Democrats will continue to pound on their lost arguments over “obstruction” and “collusion”, but those arguments have always been false and Mueller’s two-year effort failed to provide them any foundation in reality.

Because our news media is such a Dumpster Fire of Fake, it takes the public awhile to catch on, but a clear majority now are sick and tired of the entire charade and the needle continues to move in the direction of truth. So this ugly chapter in our nation’s history – brought to us by the Democrat Party and its media toadies – is effectively over.

New record highs in the stock markets. – Despite the best efforts of the swamp snakes at the Fed to hold the economy down, this week saw a renewed surge in corporate earnings across the breadth and depth of the U.S. economy. That surge led to the setting of yet more record highs in all of the major stock indexes, benefiting the various types of retirement funds held by tens of millions of ordinary Americans.

Economic growth beat expectations. – Although it came in at an Obama-like 2.1%, U.S. GDP growth for the second quarter beat “expert” expectations by a significant margin, and the economy appears to be resurging after a slow April and May.

Cop abuse videos from New York City go viral. – As Democrat/Communist Mayor Bill DeBlasio runs around the country pursuing a vanity campaign for president, a series of videos emerged this week showing gangs of thugs in his city pelting police officers with water balloons, buckets of water and other objects, humiliating them as they cower and retreat in compliance with the Mayor’s orders. This idiotic, disgusting policy will inevitably lead to more and more aggression until police officers begin to be seriously injured or even killed. It is a repugnant display of cowardice and horrific leadership brought to America purely by Democrats.

The Squad is now fully in control of the House Democrat Caucus. – As her final action before fleeing the nation’s capital for her 6-week “August recess” (I’m old enough to remember when August only contained a little over 4 weeks) Pelosi felt compelled to hold a special meeting with the leader of The Squad, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. That meeting produced this cringe-inducing image, as Pelosi’s pasted-on smile looks to be on the verge of melting off her plasticized face:

Image result for pelosi meets with aoc

Seriously, which one of these women appears to be actually happy, and which appears to be ready to claw the other one’s eyes out?  This is not a trick question. Having AOC and the other three raging anti-Semite Squad members fully in control of the House Democrat caucus is political nirvana for Donald Trump. These four spoiled, attention-seeking children’s antics will provide the President with a never-ending flow of fodder to toss back at the Democrats throughout his re-election campaign.

Bottom line: After the November, 2020 elections have come and gone, the President has been easily re-elected, and the GOP controls large majorities in both houses of congress, we will look back on this fourth week in July, 2019 as the week the tide fully turned.

The week was that good.

That is all.

End of Week Summation: Trump Just Keeps on Winning

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

Some Friday odds and ends. – Michael Barthel at the Pew Research Center has a very telling piece up this week about the state of the media in America, by the numbers. Key findings include the fact that total newspaper circulation fell in 2018 to its lowest point since 1940, down about 9% from 2017. Ad revenue was off by a whopping 13% year over year. I can’t think of a more deserving industry – led as it is by the news-faking New York Times and Washington Post – to suffer such a fate.

Tired of all this #WINNING yet? – It’s buried waaaaaayyyyyy down in the bowels of the report, but the IMF this week upgraded its 2019 economic growth forecast for the U.S. economy from 2.3% to 2.6%. For 2020, the IMF forecasts a U.S. GDP growth rate of 1.9%. It’s important to remember that the IMF has made a habit of underestimating U.S. growth rates in recent years.  Gosh, wonder why?

No collusion, yet again. – The Senate Intelligence Committee, chaired by RINO Richard Burr of North Carolina, issued a report on its long-overdue investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 elections yesterday, and guess what it found? No collusion.

The report of course alleges that the Russians attempted to interfere in the 2016 elections in a variety of ways – something they have done in every U.S. election cycle since 1920 – and notes that the Obama DHS was ineffectual in doing anything about it:

While the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and FBI warned states about cyber attacks in the summer and fall of 2016, their warnings “did not provide enough information or go to the right people,” the report said.

But, despite thousands of fake media reports to the contrary, the report, in its very next paragraph, notes that the Trump Administration has made significant strides in dealing with the issue:

Since then, the government’s actions have “evolved significantly,” the committee determined, noting DHS had made “great strides” in educating and providing assistance to state and local election officials.

The progress made by DHS and election officials, “is a testament to what we can accomplish when we give people the opportunity to be part of a solution,” Republican Sen. Richard Burr of North Carolina, the committee’s chairman, said in a statement. “There is still much work that remains to be done, however.”

Man, it had to be hard for Burr to utter those words, after all the toadying he has done for ranking Democrat Mark Warner throughout the course of this ridiculous investigation.

President Trump is such a threat to our nation’s security that we will now spend the next six weeks going on lavish junkets at taxpayer expense. – Barely 24 hours after having spent all day Wednesday claiming that President Donald Trump is an existential threat to our nation’s security and that they would never, never, never, ever take a moment’s rest until he is removed from office, House Democrats led by Nancy Pelosi adjourned their chamber for a six-week-long vacation.

I swear I don’t make this stuff up.

If a congressional hearing is held and nobody’s watching, does it really make a sound? – But hey, it turns out it didn’t much matter since so few Americans were actually watching Wednesday’s festivities. All combined, the audiences for the coverage of the Mueller hearing on ABC, CBS, NBC, PBS, CNN, MSNBC, Fox News and C-Span totaled just 13 million people. That’s slightly less than 4% of the U.S. population, folks.

At the end of the day, the vaunted Mueller Investigation, which Democrats and their myriad toadies in the national news media assured you all for two solid years would bring down a duly-elected President of the United States of America, went out not with a bang, but with a doddering, stammering, bumbling whimper.

Regardless of what the Democrat/media propaganda complex attempts to do next, from this point forward, the President and the Department of Justice will be playing offense in this fight to save the country.

See? There really still is justice in America.

That is all.

No Sympathy for the Devil, er, Robert Mueller

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

Reminder: Arkancide can strike at anytime, anywhere. – Convicted and newly-accused pedophile and longtime friend of the Clintons Jeffrey Epstein was found “injured and in a fetal position inside his cell at a New York city jail” yesterday, according to officials involved in his current legal proceedings.

NBC Channel 4 in New York City reports that jail officials initially claimed the incident was the result of an attempted “suicide”, but Channel 4 says another source claims that “an assault has not been ruled out, and that another inmate was questioned.” Oh, you don’t say.

The story continues: “The inmate who investigators have talked to in Lower Manhattan facility has been identified as Nicholas Tartaglione, according to two sources. Tartaglione is a former police officer in Westchester County who was arrested in December 2016 and accused of killing four men in an alleged cocaine distribution conspiracy, then burying their bodies in his yard in Otisville in Orange County, according to court records.”

Sounds like a prince of a man. Hey, wonder if he’s ever been to Arkansas?

Sympathy for Robert Mueller? Sorry, I’m all out. – I was criticized yesterday for not showing proper “sympathy” for Robert Mueller, given his obviously diminished state. I received several notes pointing out that Mueller is after all an ex-Marine (we should all be grateful for that service) and that our real ire should be directed at the evil Andrew Weissman and the other Mueller bad hires who actually ran the two-year Witch Hunt and actually wrote the despicable final Mueller Report.

Well, sorry, folks, I’m not buying that nonsense. While Mueller is, as noted above, in an obviously diminished mental state and at this point appears to barely have his wits about him, let’s all review how he ended up in that witness chair yesterday:

  • It is well-documented that Mueller is in fact a very close friend of James Comey – despite his hemming and hawing on that yesterday – whose highly-justified firing was used by Rod Rosenstein as the pretense to create the Special Counsel investigation. That conflict of interest alone would have led an actual ethical person to refuse the appointment. Mueller didn’t care.
  • It is also well-documented that, in the week leading up to the appointment, Mueller held a series of meetings with Rosenstein – another close friend, another blatant conflict of interest – in which they discussed the prospect of his becoming Special Counsel.
  • Even worse, it is well-documented – despite Mueller’s half-hearted denial – that the day before he was appointed to become Special Counsel by his good friend Rosenstein, Mueller actually met with President Donald Trump himself, to discuss the open FBI Director’s position.
  • Mueller didn’t take this job on the spur of the moment, as so many in our fake news media have falsely claimed, he plotted to get this job.

Ask yourself: Are these the behaviors of an admirable man, a man for whom we should now have sympathy because he is obviously aging badly? But there is more, much, much more:

  • We are supposed to now be angered at Weissman, the “real” bad guy here (and he is a very, very bad guy), but who hired Weissman? Robert Mueller hired Weissman, knowing fully his sordid history of abusing his power and ignoring the law, and knowing fully his support of Hillary Clinton and personal animus towards President Trump.
  • Even worse than that, Mueller took the job knowing from Day 1 that, in the famous words of Super Duper ex-FBI Agent and aspiring Latin Lover Peter Strzok, there was no ‘there there.’ Mueller and everyone he hired knew from the first day on the job that “Russia Collusion” was a fantasy play invented by the DNC, the Clinton Campaign and Christopher Steele with cooperation from agents from a variety of foreign governments including – gasp! – RUSSIA.
  • Mueller took the job knowing that the job was in fact an attempt at a coup d’etat on American soil, an effort to remove a sitting, duly-elected President of the United States of America by whatever means he and his evil minions could concoct.
  • Regardless of who actually did the work, Mueller lent his name and reputation to this heinous enterprise, an act of mendacity of unprecedented scope and goal in American history.
  • Mueller’s name sat atop the Special Counsel’s offices, no one else’s. All the Gestapo tactics, all the despicable abuses of civil rights, all the early morning raids, all the torture-like imprisonments, all the bully tactics designed to force witnesses to lie to save their own skins – all of those things were conducted under the name of Robert Mueller, no one else.
  • The final report that was issued, the report that threw all semblance of legal ethics and due process so vital to our personal freedoms to the wind, is called “The Mueller Report,” not the Weissman Report. Regardless of who actually wrote the words in that report – words that continuously shocked and visibly surprised Mueller himself when read back to him yesterday – those words were written and published under the name of Robert Mueller, and Robert Mueller personally placed his signature on that report.

So, if y’all want to express your sympathy for Robert Mueller in his obviously-diminished state, you go right ahead. Do it and enjoy it and even signal your virtue about it on social media.

Me? I’ll reserve my sympathies for General Mike Flynn and Jerome Corsi and Roger Stone and George Papadopoulous and all the myriad other American citizens whose constitutional rights were abused and personal lives were destroyed under Mueller’s name. And I will remain angry about the evil fantasy play Mueller put our nation through for the last two solid years.

Damn him for doing it.

That is all.
