Mueller Gets in a Final, Despicable Smear

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

A “special counsel” who has no idea what the word “justice” actually means. – Looking for all the world like a doddering, poorly-aging man in need of assisted living care and sounding like a stammering, nervous wreck, Gestapo Chief, er, Special Counsel Robert Mueller got in one final despicable smear at President Donald J. Trump today in a press conference at which he refused to take questions.

Reading haltingly from a prepared text from which he never strayed, the man who spent 20 months conducting a depraved witch hunt designed to hamper a duly elected president’s ability to run his administration and serve as opposition research for the 2020 Democrat presidential nominee demonstrated conclusively that he rejects the Constitutional dictum that any American citizen charged with a crime must be presumed innocent unless proved guilty in a court of law. Mueller turned that crucial principle of American liberty on its head by stating that his objective was in fact to dig up dirt on a sitting POTUS and to instead declare him to be innocent if only he and his team of Clinton/Obama hacks felt confident in doing so.

To be exact, Mueller said “If we had confidence that the president did not commit a crime, we would have said so,” when in fact any ethical prosecutor would instead have said something like “If we had found evidence that the President committed a crime, we would have said so.”

The difference in those two statements is no trivial matter. It is in fact the single most crucial difference between personal liberty and oppression. Yet, Mueller made that un-American statement even after grudgingly admitting he and his Witch Hunter team found no evidence that the President committed any obstruction of justice, and no evidence of any collusion by the President with any foreign interest.

It is the continuation of a despicable smear, a depraved act by a highly-political, corrupt and for some reason desperate man.

I say “desperate” because it is hard to envision any other reason for Mueller to have held today’s press event. What other reason besides desperation was there to do so? He certainly was not being prodded to do so by Attorney General William Barr or anyone else in the Trump Administration. He certainly has no obligation to respond via the media to Democrat efforts to force him to testify before various house committees. He certainly had no obligation to make a verbal statement of any kind to the press regarding his retirement from the DOJ – a simple memo to Barr would do that trick.

So why did he do it? Let’s think about that for a moment, because I think he was there to send some very specific messages, the first of which was to Jabba the Nadler and the rest of the despicable House Democrats.

That message was: “Read my report. My report speaks for itself, and I would not testify to anything beyond that report. Now, leave me alone.”

What does that mean? That means that Mueller knows that he would have to answer questions from Republicans as well as Democrat members of any committee, and that not be an easy thing for him to do. He also knows that he would subject himself to perjury charges should any of his verbal testimony contradict anything in the 440 page report he stupidly sent over to AG Barr in March. For better or worse, he is stuck defending everything that is in that report, word for word, and he doesn’t want to assume the risk of having to remember it all under oath.

The second message Mueller likely wanted to deliver on the record today was to Barr himself. Mueller spent time in his statement pointing to the fact that the scope of his Witch Hunt was authorized by then-Deputy AG Rod Rosenstein in a pair of scoping memos, and make various other self-justifying statements. This probably means that Barr and U.S. Attorney John Durham are reviewing Mueller’s many abuses in the scope of their own investigation, which would help explain why Mueller was so extremely nervous while making today’s statement.

Mueller’s final message was that he is an angry, bitter man. Angry that his Witch Hunt failed in its goal of successfully executing a coup d’etat on President Trump, angry that he had to shut it all down when a real, functional Attorney General took over that office, bitter that he is now facing personal jeopardy for conduct that Rosenstein had personally sanctioned.

Thus, he issued one final angry, bitter statement containing one final smear of the President, a smear that literally turns our nation’s system of justice and protections of personal liberty on its head.

The proper charge for attempting a coup d’etat on U.S. soil is treason, the maximum penalty for which is death.

There is no punishment too harsh for a government official who would stoop to such despicable tactics.

That is all.

Beto O’Rourke Issues the Most Authentic Democrat Apology Ever

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

Apology accepted, you giant a**hole! – Desperate times call for desperate measures, as they say, and no Democrat candidates are more desperate these days than Eric “Otter” Swalwell and Irish Bob “Beto” O’Rourke. This week, both campaigns decided it would be best for their failing candidates to apologize for being exactly who they are.

So, Swalwell went out on Monday and, in on of the most stilted, palpably insincere moments of 2019, made a video in which he apologized to a woman for being a white man, saying “I may be another white guy, but I know there are gaps in my knowledge or in my experience and I know when to pass the mic.”

Ummmm, no, dude, the very existence of this video clearly demonstrates you haven’t the slightest clue about when to do that.

When questioned by Fox News’s Martha MaCallum about Swalwell’s gesture, Trey Gowdy nailed it, saying “Well, Eric’s clearly riding a wave. I think he’s all the way up to zero in the polling.”  Ooof.

Not to be outdone by one of the shrinking handful of contenders he still leads in the polling, Irish Bob O’Rourke issued a video of his own on Tuesday. In this one, he apologizes to his 2018 senate campaign staff for being “a giant asshole.” Which, of course, is what everyone was thinking about him but afraid to say in polite company. But we aren’t in polite company here at Today’s Campaign Update, so we just plow right ahead and say it.

Hey, this is a really promising trend we have going on here for the Democrats. Maybe the rest of the field will take this opportunity issue some heartfelt apologies of their own for their past misdeeds that we are all totally aware of.  Wouldn’t that be fun?

Here are some examples of the apology opportunities that lie out there in Democrat land:

  • Joe Biden could apologize for being a serial woman-and-child groper;
  • Kamala Harris could apologize for being a floozy who slept her way to the Senate;
  • Fauxcahontas could apologize for being, well, Fauxcahontas;
  • The Commie could apologize for being an America-hating Marxist;
  • Pete Buttigieg could apologize for being just so darn cute;
  • Amy Klobuchar could apologize for being a heinously-abusive boss;
  • Cory Booker could apologize to Spartacus;
  • Kirstin Gillibrand could apologize for ever announcing her candidacy in the first place;
  • John Hickenlooper could apologize for having been a pretty good governor, thus ending any hope that he might actually succeed in Democrat presidential politics;
  • Jay Inslee, a horrible governor, could apologize in advance to all those future dead Washingtonians whose bodies will be mixed with leaves and manure to become compost;
  • Bill DeBlasio could apologize for being the worst mayor in a city whose history is filled with an endless series of awful mayors, interrupted only by 8 years of Rudy Giuliani;
  • Tulsi Gabbard could apologize to the other contenders for being the only actually interesting candidate in the entire field;
  • Marianne Williamson could apologize for being someone… I don’t even know who she is;
  • Seth Moulton could apologize to Fox News viewers for denying their ability to cringe and laugh out loud at every opinion uttered on-air by Marie Harf;
  • Julian Castro could apologize for being too authentically Hispanic to ever hope to attract the votes of Democrat voters who just love to be deceived.

This could go on almost endlessly, given the collection of miscreants, hacks and life-long frauds that are leading the race right now.

But of course, it won’t. Being a leftist asshole means never really having say you’re sorry, unless you think there’s some political advantage to doing it. Pretty sure that was in a movie once.

Trump Delivers Another Master’s Course in the art of Persuasion

Today’s Campaign Update, Evening Edition
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

These people will never learn. – In the last 48 hours, the President of the United States has accomplished the following:

  • Got our fake news media to endlessly communicate the message that the guy leading the polls to be the Democrat nominee in 2020 just might be a “low IQ individual”; and
  • Convinced Deep State skunk and current National Teenage Drama Queen James Comey to discuss the possibility that he might have committed outright treason in an op/ed published in the Washington Post.

That is some world-class political persuasion right there, folks, and the hilarious thing about it is that the President’s opponents basically did all the damage to themselves as they scrambled to respond to a handful of Presidential tweets. The outright cluelessness of these people about how Trump operates as we sit here, four full years after he first started doing this kind of thing to them right after he announced his candidacy back in 2015, is truly stunning to observe.

Think about it: Every fake news outlet in America and every fake journalist who habits social media has been talking about whether or not Joe Biden is a “low IQ individual” since Saturday, and the discussion shows no signs of stopping. Matter of fact, the President issued this tweet less than an hour before I began writing this piece just to make sure it keeps going:

That tweet came after the Biden campaign, after having remained intelligently silent, also fell into the trap by issuing a statement denying its candidate is an idiot – why did they feel the need to do that? Think about it – and lambasting the POTUS for insulting a former vice president on foreign soil, a sentiment so hilariously ludicrous that it only goes to prove how dumb Joe Biden and his staff truly are.

Thus, the discussion about whether or not Joe Biden has the IQ of the average parrot will continue uninterrupted for at least another 24 hours. Which, by the way, IS EXACTLY WHAT THE PRESIDENT WANTS TO HAPPEN.

I mean, how hard is this to figure out?

And then there was our National Drama Queen, denying he and his fellow deep state cabal members at the Obama-era FBI committed treason.  Holy crap.

Here’s a trick for you:  Go to Google and put the word “treason” into the search box.  Guess what comes up first? You got it – an op/ed by James Comey!

Do I really need to say anything more about this one, other than that it will compete with the story about whether or not Joe Biden is smarter than a dung beetle to be the lead story on every TV/Radio/social media news page for the next 24-48 hours?

Again, exactly what Trump wants.

Next thing you know, we’ll see John Brennan going on MSNBC to urge CIA Director Gina Haspel and DNI Dan Coats to commit outright sedition by refusing to comply with Attorney General William Barr’s efforts to declassify crucial documents related to Spygate.

What’s that? Brennan already did that last Friday?

Now do you understand?

That is all.

New Democrat Strategy: Hidin’ Biden

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

Hey, why does that strategy sound so familiar?– The Washington Post carried a piece on Sunday titled “Biden’s Campaign is one of Limited Exposure.” Gosh, that sure sounds like something we’ve heard from a leading Democrat candidate before, doesn’t it?

Yeah, sure does. To see why, all we must do is hark back to 2015, when the Pantsuit Princess’s advisors decided that the best thing for her to do was to lay low and stay out of the public eye as much as possible. Why would that be the case, you might wonder? Well, it was because the Fainting Felon’s team recognized that they had on their hands an extraordinarily unlikable candidate, a candidate whose polling numbers fell in direct correlation with the amount of public exposure she received. Plus, they had a candidate with a variety of physical infirmities – like her chronic hacking cough and the fact that she was incapable of climbing a few steps up to a stage without assistance – that had to be carefully hidden from the public eye.

Thus, the Coughing Crook’s campaign was one of strategic hiding, a campaign designed to attract as little direct attention onto the candidate herself as possible. While Donald Trump and 15 other GOP contenders were duking it out on national TV every day, the Grasping Grifter was issuing carefully-scripted tweets, speaking maybe twice a week at the standard half-filled high school gymnasium, and otherwise avoiding any live contact with anyone who might ask an inconvenient question of her. That strategy continued right on through Election Day 2016, and we all saw how that turned out for the Democrats.

Fast forward four years, and we now see Creepy Uncle Joe employing the exact same strategy. While 24 other Democrat candidates are jockeying for position in the daily pecking order, desperately seeking all the free media attention they can get, the guy who has had more facial work than Cher and whose really bad hair plug job all fell out late in the 20th century has suddenly gone quiet following his much-heralded two week campaign kickoff a month ago.

It isn’t hard to see why. As we discussed last week, Biden very predictably jumped out to a big lead in the various polls during the 10 days following his formal campaign announcement, and then saw that lead quickly start to disintegrate in direct correlation with the amount of actual media attention he received.

See, Democrat voters love the idea of Joe Biden, but it was starting to become too obvious that they aren’t all that fond of waking up to the reality of Joe Biden. The idea of Biden is the thought that here’s the Washington, DC veteran of more than 40 years, an energetic guy who has seen and done it all, a guy who spent 8 years as VP to Barack Hussein Obama his own self, a guy who would ride in on his unicorn and vanquish the Evil Orange Man, thus taking our nation back to the glory days of 1% economic growth and the EPA regulating our swimming pools.

But the reality of Joe Biden is something else entirely. The reality of Biden is a guy who can’t keep his hands off of women and children at public events, a guy who will be approaching octogenarian status by the time January 20, 2021 rolls around, a worn out old DC hack who can’t attract a crowd of more than a few hundred people to an event in Downtown Philly, a guy with a real record as long as his creepy fingers that is chock-full of statements and positions that offend pretty much every one of the aggrieved special interests that constitute the Democrat Party’s fragile voter coalition, and a guy who can’t even speak in complete, coherent sentences when not reading from a script.

This is a man who has to be carefully controlled and handled, obviously.

Biden’s massive team of handlers understand that the key to Joe Biden becoming president is to ensure that voters go to the polls to elect the idea of Joe Biden, because there is no way on God’s green earth – or I guess they would say Gaia’s green earth – that the American people are ever going to elect the reality of Joe Biden.

These advisors must look at the long series of debates and a long and arduous nominating run laid out before them as a field of land mines, a withering and daunting process that could see their candidate’s clownish mouth produce utter disaster with every successive step. So, yes, they are keeping their accident-waiting-to-happen candidate out of the public eye as much as possible right now. Best to go into that debate season next month with a lead in the polls and see how long they can hang onto it.

Thus, the Democrats go from Hiding Hillary to Hidin’ Biden.

Maybe someday the Party that saddled us with Woodrow Wilson and Jimmy Carter and Bill Clinton and Barack Obama his own self will nominate a candidate it can actually be proud of. Wouldn’t that be a wonderful thing?

That is all.

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.

The Democrat/Media Axis of Propaganda is Rotting our Society

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

Media blackout on anything positive continues. – On his way to Japan Friday, President Donald Trump (I still never tire of typing those three glorious words) stopped in Alaska to visit with U.S. troops there, an appropriate gesture given that honoring America’s military and its veterans is the entire purpose of the Memorial Day holiday.

The troops cheered and, unlike their reaction whenever Barack Hussein Obama his own self would make such a visit, were obviously excited and thrilled to be in the presence of the President. Naturally, I had to go to the semi-conservative Washington Examiner’s website to find any news coverage of the visit. Undeterred as always, the President gave us his own coverage via his Twitter account, including a clip of the gathering:

Our national news media remains America’s worst historic disgrace. This truth of modern society has never been demonstrated more starkly than in the current behavior by the Democrat members in the U.S. House of Representatives, by Obama appointees in the courts, and our fake news media’s enabling of that behavior.

In fact, what we have seen since January from doddering, gibberish-spewing San Fran Nan and her evil minions is a clear illustration of the major weakness of the U.S. Constitution.

See, the men who drafted that document, which is quite possibly the most impressive piece of genius ever conceived by the human mind, were all men of good intent, men who loved America and the very idea of the creation and maintenance of a constitutional Republican form of government. And they were being covered every day by a press – what they referred to as the Fourth Estate and considered to be a crucial element to any free society – that, though it had major faults and biases, was dedicated to holding those in power accountable to the people.

The fundamental weakness of the document they created back during May-September of 1787 is that it assumes that future generations of Americans would continue to send people of good intent, people who love their country and want it to prosper in the world, to represent them in the U.S. Congress. The Constitution also presumes that the Fourth Estate would continue to pursue its societal duty of serving as the people’s watchdog, dedicated to holding all those in power accountable to the public.

These two elements are absolutely key to the healthy maintenance of the separation of powers between our three branches of government – without them, power-mad zealots would be able to run amok as they abuse and distort the system, and deny one or both of the other branches of government the ability to perform their necessary and envisioned duties.

We have seen such abusive behavior from Obama appointees in the federal courts since January, 2017. An array of these seditious people have made a practice of issuing a seemingly-endless series of lawless decisions and national injunctions, all designed to deny the Trump Administration the ability to govern the nation. This is all by design, a part of the “Lawfare” strategy developed by Obama and his fellow America-haters specifically in anticipation of the election of the next Republican president. It is un-American, it is seditious, it is lawless, and it is frankly evil. Sadly, our nation’s corrupt, fake media establishment ignores the serial abuses of these judges and refuses to inform the vast majority of citizens about the truth of this intentional strategic initiative.

Since January of this year, we have seen the committees in the Democrat-controlled House of Representatives weaponize the legislative branch of our government in a second effort to deny a duly-elected President of the United States the ability to govern the nation. This strategy is designed to keep the executive branch so preoccupied with a vast array of baseless investigations that again, it is unable to properly carry out its duties and implement the policies it was elected to affect.

Again, our fake national news media is mute on the reality of all of this, intentionally refusing to inform its viewers and readers of the seditious mendacity being practiced daily by the Democrats.

It is vitally important that those of us who are “woke” to all of this understand what has really happened, that we as a nation have a major political party that no longer elects people of good intent who love our country and want it to prosper in the world. The Democrat Party simply no longer has any priority other than the acquisition and maintenance of political power for its own sake.

If we had anything resembling a media establishment dedicated to holding those in power accountable to the people, the Democrat Party could not possibly ever win another election of any kind with its current lawless philosophy. But we must understand and accept that our society has also lost this crucial element so necessary to its survival as a free nation. That loss may be irretrievable, given the sorry state of our system of higher education and our nation’s journalism schools.

All of this is why the road upon which Attorney General William Barr has embarked is so vitally important. Because the Obama Administration organized an effort to fix the 2016 presidential election in favor of its party’s candidate, and then, having failed that, extended that effort into an outright coup attempt. This is now crystal clear to any informed, thoughtful person of good intent in our society.

If there is no punishment, no consequences for having committed such a high crime, a literal atrocity against the very foundations of our society, then what incentive would San Fran Nan and Chuck Schumer and the rest of the despicable leadership of the Democrat Party ever have to modify their behavior?

There must. be. consequences.

That is all.

Trump Orders Barr to Light the Fuse on the Declassification Bomb

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

When real news intrudes on DC Kabuki Theater. – While most of the fake news media is focused on the back-and-forth childish insults between President Trump and San Fran Nan, actual important stuff just keeps happening. British Prime Minister Theresa May resigned overnight after making an utter disaster of Brexit planning. That’s kind of a big deal.

Wikileaks founder Julian Assange, who styles himself as a journalist, was hit with 18 charges under the Espionage Act. Gosh, that probably raised the stress level of all the reporters in our fake national news media outlets who’ve spent the last three years trading sports tickets, expensive dinners and sex for classified material, don’t you think? After all, it is one thing for a journalist to “receive” national secrets like several did from Daniel Ellsberg in the famous Pentagon Papers incident, but it is quite another thing to obtain them via bribery or, as in the case of Assange, via hacking illegally into computers. Something to keep in the back of our minds as Attorney General William Barr moves forward with his investigation. More on this later, in fact.

And speaking of our real, actual, functioning Attorney General, the biggest overnight news – news that the New York Times will likely relegate to page 19 of section C – came in the form of a letter to Mr. Barr from President Trump authorizing him to start the process of declassifying documents related to surveillance of the Trump campaign by high officials in the Obama Administration during 2016.

Boom.

“Today, at the request and recommendation of the Attorney General of the United States, President Donald J. Trump directed the intelligence community to quickly and fully cooperate with the Attorney General’s investigation into surveillance activities during the 2016 Presidential election,” White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said in a statement.

The full text of the memorandum can be found here.

This memo is very interesting for several reasons:

  • It confers Barr the full authority to conduct the declassification without involvement from Mr. Trump himself. This makes sense since Trump was the ultimate target of the illegal spying, and thus would have an inherent conflict of interest. It is very telling that the President was unwilling to confer such authority on former AG Jeff Sessions, but is now willing to give it to Barr.
  • Giving Barr full authority to manage the process also makes sense given that it is being done in conjunction with the conduct of Barr’s own investigation, which is being led by Connecticut U.S. Attorney John Durham. It allows Barr and Durham the discretion to hold back any documents whose public revelation might harm their own inquiry.
  • Note all the other high officials addressed in the memorandum. Note the presence of the Secretary of …. Energy??? Hey, what is the main function of the Department of Energy? Why, it is providing security for the nation’s nuclear facilities, both in the Defense Department – whose Secretary is also addressed atop the memo – and in the nation’s power generation sector. Hey, remember that time when the Obama Administration – led by then-Sec. State Pantsuit Princess – sold 20% of our nation’s uranium reserves to the Russians, right after the Russians had poured more than $150 million into the Clinton Crime Family’s Fake Foundation? Yeah…guessing the Coughing Crook soiled her newest fashionable table cloth smock when she saw this little item.
  • Oh, yeah, look at who else is on that list – the Secretary of Treasury. Hey, remember that time when President Barack Hussein Obama his own self authorized the loading of $400 million in foreign currency onto a jumbo jet and had it flown over to Tehran to give to the Iranian Mullahs? Yeah, so do I.
  • Oh, and look at the paragraph headed “Section 1. Agency Cooperation.” Look at how it says “The Attorney General is currently conducting a review of intelligence activities relating to the campaigns in the 2016 Presidential election and certain related matters.” What might those “related matters” be? Sure is going to be interesting finding out.
  • [One more interesting note that comes from a friend] It is also “Interesting that it dropped on the Thursday night before Memorial Day weekend, when most of these swamp rats have already checked out for the long weekend, but while most Americans are still paying attention for another 12-18 hours.”  Solid point.

The timing of this memo is interesting for a number of reasons, one of which is the pending release of the report on abuse of the FISA process coming from DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz. As I told host Greg Budell in a Tuesday interview on Montgomery, Alabama’s 93.1 FM, some parts of that report most likely won’t make much sense to the public at large unless certain documents are declassified either along with the IG’s report or shortly after its release.

My bet is that the timing of this memo means that we will be seeing that IG report very soon now, probably during the first half of June.

One final point, cycling back to the discussion above about Assange and “journalists” who illegally obtain classified documents: Keep in mind that news item we saw several weeks back indicating that Horowitz has been looking into incidents in which FBI and other DOJ officials had received illegal compensation in exchange for such information.

We have waited a long, long time for this declassification and the final Horowitz report. After several false starts and disappointments, it is well past time for both to be real.

That is all.

About That Biden “Surge” in the Polls…It Isn’t Happening

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

When a “surge” is actually a durge. – As is always the case with the DC punditry these days, they’re wrong.

Over the past week, poll-watching pundits like Karl Rove and pretty much all the others have been marveling about Joe Biden’s “pop” or “surge” or whatever word you want to put to it – in the polls. Talking about him in a way that is clearly designed to make you think he is a virtual shoe-in to be the Democrat nominee in 2020, and a real, strong challenger to the re-election of President Donald Trump. The only problem with all of this is that it just isn’t happening. Take a look at this:

 

See that green line? That’s Joe Biden. It’s his average in the RealClearPolitics average of polls. See which way it has been heading over the past 10 days? Clue: it isn’t up. It isn’t a “pop.” It’s not a “surge.”

What that line actually represents is the inevitable: Biden’s precipitous plunge back earthwards as all the people in the Democrat voter base get a good gander at him and listen to the idiocy that pops out of his mouth and remember exactly who Joe Biden really is.

Who Joe Biden is, is a clown. A human gaffe machine. A guy who has no respect for the personal space of women and children. A guy who can’t keep his creepy hands to himself at public events. A guy who has been mucking around in the DC Swamp for 46 years; a guy who has a record as long as your arm and none of it is good.

That’s who Joe Biden is.

And so, the numbers plunge, and they will keep plunging until that gap between his green line and one of the other candidates’ line is gone. I figure that will happen along about October 1 or so, maybe sooner depending on how Biden performs in the early debates.

How fast is Biden falling? Good question. See that poll by The Hill, where Biden’s sitting at 33? Two weeks ago, right after his formal campaign kickoff, he was sitting at 46. That’s the most severe drop in any of them thus far, mainly because that 46 number is the highest Biden has achieved in any of the myriad polls.

In any event, you are best advised not to believe the media buzz that Biden’s the most likely Democrat nominee, for a variety of reasons.

His inherent goofiness as a human being is just one of them. His advanced age, which shows more and more every day, is another. But the main reason is the fact that the Democrats are awarding delegates in their primaries on a modified-proportional basis in all states this time, rather than a winner-take-all basis.

Any candidate winning at least 15% of the vote in a state primary will receive a share of the delegates. If only one candidate reaches that level, then it becomes winner-take-all. If no candidates receive 15% – which is entirely possible in some states with such a large field – then “the minimum to receive delegates will be 50% of the vote received by the front-runner.  For example, if candidate A wins with 10% of the vote, delegates will be allocated proportionately to anyone that receives 5% or more.”

With 25 candidates in the race and counting, this system is setting up a free-for-all in which it is very likely that the Democrats will show up to their national convention next summer without a clear nominee, and maybe without any candidate even coming close to that threshold.

What does that mean? A brokered convention, at which you could even end up with a nominee who did not run in the primaries.

Hey, which prominent, extremely ambitious Democrats are not announced candidates, but are rumored to be working towards that exact possibility as we speak?

What do you think Hillary Clinton is doing with her spare time?

I’m just sayin’.

That is all.

Never, Ever Forget How Our Fake News Media Turned a Creepy Porn Lawyer Into a Star

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

The Creepy Porn Lawyer is in the news again, and boy, is it rich. – This time, Michael Avenatti, is in trouble for stealing $300,000 from – guess who? – his former client, Porn star Stormy Daniels.  I swear I don’t make this stuff up. Who could?

Before we go any further, it’s important to remember how the fake news media – mainly CNN and MSNBC, but also many others – turned this very despicable man into a national celebrity, even to the point of treating him seriously as someone who could end up being president of the United States:

Oh, yeah, good times…good times…

Now, of course, Bill Mahr and all those fake news hosts at CNN and MSNBC are looking at each other saying “who, me? Naw, I never did that, it was you!”, but video is a difficult and pretty permanent thing.

But back to the Creepy Porn Guy. This is just the latest indictment in a long string of them, a series of alleged crimes involving blackmail, tax fraud, mail fraud, theft, failure to pay child support and alimony, spousal abuse and on and on and on. This guy is like a modern-day Al Capone with a buzz cut and a $4,000 suit.

Here’s what he stands accused of in this particular indictment, per CNBC:

Prosecutors claim that Avenatti ripped off Daniels by taking payments for her book sales and paying her just half of what she was owed.

The indictment, which charges him with wire fraud and aggravated identity theft, accuses him of spending some of the money he allegedly swindled from Daniels on a lease payment for his Ferrari, travel expenses, dry cleaning and $56,000 in payroll at his law firm.

Hey, cleaning those $4,000 suits costs real money, folks, especially when they’ve been worn by a creep whose sweat is made up mainly of sulfur gas. You have to wonder how all the paralegals at his firm feel, now knowing that some of their paychecks were derived from stolen porn money.

In a Vanity Fair piece published May 21, the ego-maniacal Avenatti makes a token effort to now appear humbled, saying “I have said many, many times over the last year, this is either going to end really, really well, or really, really badly. I am most fearful of the fact that the rate of descent is greater than the rate of ascent. Some would argue at this point that I flew too close to the sun. As I sit here today, yes, absolutely, I know I did. No question. Icarus.”

“I couldn’t believe how unbelievably great everything was,” Avenatti told Vanity Fair. “Now, there are days when I can’t believe what a nightmare this is.”

Aw, poor baby. If you’re thinking about now feeling a little sorry for the Creepy Porn Guy after reading that, well, stop it!  Just stop.

Take a step back and remember how he smeared Judge Brett Kavanaugh by bringing forward a deranged “witness” who was clearly mentally disturbed, and who claimed Kavanaugh was a serial rapist during his high school days. Avenatti has yet to be indicted for anything related to that depraved, despicable chapter of his sordid life.

If convicted of all of his alleged misdeeds, the Creepy Porn Guy stands to serve up to 400 years in the federal pen. He won’t last that long, of course, but maybe when he dies they should just leave his rotting body in his cell as an example of what happens to a fake news media hero who turns out to actually be the Worst Person in the World.

That is all.
