President Trump’s War of Attrition vs. The Deep State

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Paris Burning Update:

Things got calmer on the streets of Gay Pareee this weekend, as 8,000 heavily-armored riot police became more efficient and effective with their use of tear gas, pepper spray and water cannons to placate the masses. Officials estimated the crowds of Yellow Vest protesters mounted to “just” 66,000 or so, about half of what they had to deal with last week, and by the end of Saturday had arrested only 168 souls.

This is what boy Prime Minister Emanuel Macron and his Climate Change enforcers call “progress.” It’s a form of “progress” that will be brought to America soon thanks to your Democrat Party, which never gives up on a good scam.

Speaking of Democrats never giving up on a good scam… – I give you Joe Biden.  Joe’s old.  He’s 76 and would be 78 on Election Day 2020. That’s a year older than Ronald Reagan – our oldest in-office President ever – was when his second term ended.  That’s old, for a serving president. No offense to anyone that age or older, but it just is.

So Biden and his team have been looking around for ways to, um, deflect attention away from the boss’s advanced, ummm, seniority, as it were. And, according to the Associated Press, they’ve come up with a bright idea: Let’s recruit young Beto to be Joe’s running mate in the primaries! I swear I don’t make this stuff up.

I suppose the strategy here would be to say, hey, sure Joe’s 77 years old, but Beto’s just 46, and if you add those up and divide by 2 you get 61 and a half! That’s pretty young, right?

In all seriousness, are voters faced with a candidate who will be well into his 80s before his first term is over going to be placated by the knowledge that, if something happens to Biden, his replacement would be a fidgety skateboarding guitar player with no real qualifications for the office? I’m not sure this is going to work, guys and gals. Matter of fact, I’m pretty sure it isn’t.

It’s a war of attrition now for President Donald Trump. – This was the week when the Deep State’s strategy to force President Trump from office became crystal clear: The plan is to open up so many different investigative fronts that he ends up throwing up his hands in frustration and resigning the office.

And the investigations don’t just target Trump – they target anyone doing a good job on his behalf as well. We lost a great Interior Secretary in Ryan Zinke this week thanks to this strategy, after DOI’s IG’s office – still occupied by Deep State loyalists – had opened up half a dozen different investigations into petty administrative matters the IG studiously ignored for 8 long Obama years.’

The shameful Democrat hack just elected to become New York’s new state attorney general announced this week that she plans to investigate every facet of Trump’s personal and business life, as well as every member of his family. Hey, remember when America used to be a constitutional Republic, and law enforcement officials had a duty to investigate crimes, not individuals? Yeah, the Democrat Party is changing all of that right before your very eyes. Are you paying attention?

This week we saw ex-Trump attorney Michael Cohen sentenced to prison for a variety of crimes that had literally nothing to do with anything remotely related to “Russia Collusion”- in fact, they had nothing to do with his work for Trump at all. Cohen pleaded guilty to things like tax evasion and some nonsense having to do with New York taxi medallions, and for the process crime of lying to investigators, but not to anything related to his work for Trump. Yet, our fake news media has spent the entire week pretending Cohen’s plea is going to get Trump impeached. It won’t.

This week also saw Russian lawyer Maria Butina plead guilty to various process and failure to file charges that again had literally nothing at all to do with Trump or his campaign. Yet our fake news media and their Democrat masters spent the entire week pretending her plea is somehow “proof” of “collusion.” It isn’t.

There’s much more news fakery going on here, but the plan is for the Democrats and the media to keep pounding this drum, day after day, week after week, hounding Trump and anyone loyal to him until he has no base of support surrounding him in the White House and his job approval numbers fall so low that he starts to lose the squishy Republicans in the Senate. At that point, the belief among those in the Deep State is that Trump will pull a Nixon and resign rather than face a potential 2/3rds vote in the Senate for his removal from office.

There are a few problems with this strategy: Richard Nixon did not have the loyal base of support among voters that Donald Trump possesses. Trump’s polling numbers remain at the same level Barack Obama commanded at this point his presidency despite the 95% negative media reporting on him and the withering daily assault of leaks and fake news planted by the Mueller team and other investigators and Deep State snakes.

Nixon also did not have the personal fortune that Trump has at his command, a fortune that allows him to lawyer up and fight all the myriad investigations the Deep State wants to throw his way. Finally, Nixon was not the bull-in-a-China-ship fighter that Donald Trump undeniably is.

But that fighter had better start fighting even more aggressively, and soon. He can start by declassifying all documents related to the sham entrapment case Mueller and his evil team mounted against General Mike Flynn. Mueller refused yet again to comply with Judge Emmett Sullivan’s order to produce the original 302 document from the FBI’s entrapment interview with Flynn that took place in January 2017. Mueller and DOJ officials were also revealed to have erased thousands of text messages from the phones of disgraced ex-FBI skunk Peter Strzok and his paramour Lisa Page last summer.

The President has a duty to declassify every document related to all of that, so that the public can clearly see the Gestapo-like tactics Mueller has been deploying against American citizens in his quest to bring down this presidency.

If DOJ IG Michael Horowitz is really going to produce a report on all the rampant abuse of the FISA process and spying on the Trump Campaign and Transition Team that took place throughout 2016 and 2017, he needs to get that produced posthaste. And what about John Huber, the Salt Lake City U.S. Attorney who Jeff Sessions claimed in early 2018 was conducting his own investigation into all of this? If Huber’s really been doing anything at all, it is long past time to be showing some results.

The Trump supporter base is incredibly loyal, but one senses it is becoming weary and frustrated at the Administration’s unwillingness to defend its President. It made some sense to hold off on doing anything big during the election season, and also to hold off through the Holiday season as well.

But things had better start popping on the President’s behalf shortly after the first of the year, or those polling numbers could well begin falling. President Trump himself has the biggest weapon in his own hands – declassification. Once he does that, the pressure on Horowitz and Huber would escalate considerably to get their own jobs done, assuming they are doing anything at all.

January 2 would be a great day to begin.

That is all.

The New York Times Proves the Deep State is Alive and Well (Oops)

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

You know it’s bound to happen. – Hey, anyone know when Netflix will have the first 3 seasons of John McCain’s Funeral uploaded for binge watching?  Asking for a friend…

Your fake news media in action! – The New York Times last week:  Ran a piece contending that the Deep State is just an alt-right “conspiracy theory.”

The New York Times this week:  Ran an anonymous op/ed, supposedly written by a “senior administration official,” who says that he is part of a cabal of government employees embedded in the executive branch working to undermine the Trump presidency.

ummmmm…yeah, that’s the definition of the term “Deep State,” guys and gals.

So, let’s do some Q&A related to this:

Q:  Has the NYTimes ever pulled a stunt like this in an effort to undermine any other president?

A:  No.  Well, not in modern times, anyway.  Who knows what they might have done the last time our country went through a round of yellow journalism like the one we’re currently experiencing, back around the turn of the 19th century?

Q: Would the NYTimes have run such a piece from a Deep State official embedded in the Obama Administration?

A: You’re kidding, right?  Seriously, this is a joke?  No?  Look, if anyone doing this to Obama had identified himself to the editorial board of the NYTimes, the Times would have publicly outed him immediately and referred his case to the U.S. Attorneys at the Southern District of New York.

Q: How “Senior” is this official?

A: Good question.  There are more than 5,000 political appointees in the executive branch of government, and many times more than that SES (Senior Executive Service) level career bureaucrats at the GS-13 level or above.  Given how loosey-goosey the fakenewsers at the Times play with words these days (I laughed out loud when someone on Twitter tried to claim they followed “rules” on such things last night), it could be any one of these tens of thousands of people.  The chances that this is someone truly “senior”, i.e., a cabinet-level official or a direct report, are extremely low.  It’s far more likely that this person some associate assistant deputy to the associate deputy assistant to the director of some obscure bureau.

Bottom line:  This person could be anybody, or, given that the piece was obviously written by a professional writer, it could also be something the Times made up out of whole cloth.  It might well have been written by the Times’ resident Clinton hack Maggie Haberman or any number of other ethics-devoid fakenewsers employed by the fake newspaper.

Or hey, it might be the work of Bob Woodward, who is extremely gifted at spinning yarns.  We can eliminate ex-FBI Director James Comey, because the piece doesn’t read like something penned by a teenage drama queen, and Hillary Clinton, since it is not filled with myriad excuses about why she lost the 2016 election.

Other than that, it could be almost anyone.  At the end of the day, who cares?  This is just the 1,001st effort by the fake news media to dummy up something that is “the beginning of the end for Donald Trump.”  A week from today, no one will remember it happened.

Meanwhile, up under the Big Top on Capitol Hill… – So damn much happened yesterday at various hearings on the Hill that it’s hard to know where to start:

  • The CEO of Twitter, Jack Dorsey, testifed before a House committee, and did his best imitation of Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg, answering pretty much no questions honestly, and repeatedly using dodges like “we must do better,” “it was a glitch in our algorithm,” and the always handy “I’ll look into that and get back to you.  Note to Congress:  He isn’t going to get back to you.
  • Facebook’s President Sheryl Sandberg also testified at the same hearing, and employed the same tactics.  In direct contrast to Zuckerberg, who looked spookily like a poorly-programmed robot at his own hearing, Ms. Sandberg at least projected the appearance of being a real human being.  Progress.
  • When a right-wing reporter named Laura Loomer tried to disrupt the hearing, shouting complaints about being shadow-banned and suspended on Twitter, Missouri Republican Billy Long, a professional auctioneer by trade, drowned her out by shouting rapid-fire auctioneer stuff into his microphone as she was being escorted out of the room by security.
  • Someone needs to let Rep. Long into the Senate Judiciary Committee room and give him a mic.  The pre-planned constant disruptions by paid “protesters” continued during the second day of hearings over Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination to the Supreme Court. Some of the disruptions came from the same people who had been “arrested” for doing the same thing on Tuesday.
  • By late morning, even some of the Democrats on the committee, realizing that it wasn’t doing them any good, appeared to be getting tired of the nonsense.  Their tiredness showed in their questioning of the nominee, which was painfully scripted, rote and straight out the highly-predictable Democrat playbook.
  • While the dreary proceedings were taking place inside the hearing room, outside the room lurked radio talk show host Alex Jones, who was also very predictably pulling all sorts of crazy stuff.  At one point, Jones confronted Senator Marco Rubio, calling him a “snake” and a “frat-boy” and accusing him – incorrectly – of wanting to “beat me up.”  Rubio responded by telling Jones “I don’t know who you are,” which, whether true or not, Jones obviously took as an insult.  Then, in Rubio’s next breath, he said “I don’t really go on your website,” indicating he does know who Jones is after all.  So confusing.

Incidentally, in case you’re wondering what happens to these protesters when they’re “arrested,” here you go:  They are taken to a nearby police station, booked, assessed a fine of $50, and released.  That’s it.

At the end of the day, what it all added up to was the Democrats getting exactly what they wanted:  Capitol Hill was your basic three-ring circus.  Expect more of the same today.

Just another day in three-ring circus America.

That is all.

The McCain Funeral: A Fitting Requiem for the Deep State

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Our long national nightmare is finally over. – Senator John McCain, who died on Saturday, August 25, was finally laid to rest on Sunday, September 2, after eight interminable days of honoring, memorializing and rank demagoguery, all of which the amazingly egotistical Senator planned for himself.  And so, the nation can heave a huge, collective sigh of relief.

I’ll get criticized for that opening paragraph, but I want those of you coming to bash me to remember that in 1963, our country suffered the assassination of a President.  That killing took place on Friday, November 22.  Following a hasty and ill-performed autopsy, the slain President’s body lay in state in the East Room of the White House throughout the day on November 23.  The body was carried by horse-drawn caisson up Pennsylvania Avenue early on the morning of November 24, where it lay in state throughout that day.

And on Monday, November 25, the body of John Fitzgerald Kennedy, the 35th President of the United States of America, was buried.  From beginning to end, the process took just three days, but then, Mr. Kennedy did not have the opportunity to do his own planning, given that he was taken down by the bullets of at least one assassin.

What we just went through as a nation over the past 8 days was unwarranted and unseemly, and everyone involved in making it happen should be embarrassed.  RIP, Senator McCain, at long last.

If you must continue mourning, here’s a new object of your desires. – The 200 year-old national museum of Brazil in Rio de Janeiro suffered a massive fire overnight, destroying most if not all of the 20 million precious historic items in its collection.  Items thought to be destroyed include the oldest human fossil found in Brazil, a fresco that survived the destruction of Pompeii, and a collection of Egyptian artifacts.  A real tragedy of epic proportions for history and the human race.

A fitting requiem for the Deep State. – Back to the McCain funeral one last time before I let the subject go forever.

Despite the unseemly nature of the “service” on Saturday, with two different former presidents and the daughter of the deceased using their time to bash the sitting President rather than memorialized the dead Senator, it occurs to me that it served as the perfect requiem for the Deep State establishment that is currently being dismantled and de-powered by President Trump.

There you had assembled in one place the three previous presidents who, along with elderly ex-President George H.W. Bush, had spent the 28 years prior to Trump’s inauguration “globalizing” America, marginalizing America’s blue-collar workers and de-emphasizing American greatness, all honoring a Senator who had played a leading role in carrying their water for more than 30 years.  You also had all the glitterati of the fake news media which has spent those same years brainwashing the American public to just lie back and take the policy-based pillaging of the U.S. economy and mortgaging of our childrens’ and grandchildrens’ future once again brainwashing you to disregard the realities of John McCain’s life and career.

At the same time, the President who is working to reverse the corrupt and destructive anti-American legacy of the previous 28 years was out playing golf because he had been dis-invited from the service by McCain and the McCain family.  Again, a perfect gesture of contempt on behalf of the Deep State.  The symbolism of the day was perfect:  The three ex-presidents looking old, tired and lacking in energy, their legislative bell cow lying in a coffin, the fake news media collectively spinning yet another tired narrative, with the one guy standing athwart them all out getting his exercise, preparing for another week of dismantling the Deep State they all worked so hard to institutionalize.

Meanwhile, the Democrat Party is radicalizing to the far, far left, and the Republican Party is systematically getting rid of its establishment wing through primary elections and retirements. The Deep State GOP/Democrat “uniparty” that McCain, Bush, Obama and Clinton worked so hard to construct over the last three decades is already greatly diminished, and stands in danger of going away entirely should Trump succeed in getting re-elected in 2020.

With our economy booming, Black and Hispanic unemployment at all-time record low levels, and tens of thousands of blue-collar and union jobs returning to America, the party coalitions of the past are being re-drawn in ways that will render the two Parties more readily distinguishable from one another.  While this process will be difficult and fraught with peril, it will over the next few years produce a result that is far better for the country.

Most people thought this weekend was about a funeral for a senator, but it was about so much more than that if you were paying attention.  The people at that service were mourning much more than the loss of just one man.

Just another day in the Deep State is dying America.

That is all.

This Past Week was President Trump Keeping his Promises

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Well, the day of decision is here, the time to decide whether you are going to stick with President Donald Trump all the way.  The fake news media and the Democrats, along with establishment Republican warmongers like John McCain, Jeff Flake and Bob Corker, are throwing everything they have at the President and his supporters, now going full ahead with the contention that supporting the man who was elected in 2016 is tantamount to treason.

The fuse that touched off the latest – and most intense to date – explosion of leftist, establishment, globalist heads in Washington was, of course, the President’s press conference performance as his meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin came to a close.  Mr. Trump’s sin, as I pointed out last night, was to publicly question the veracity of the allegations of Russian meddling in the 2016 U.S. elections contained in indictments brought down by a proven liar and stonewaller, Rod Rosenstein, and a Special Counsel’s office filled with Clinton/Obama activist hacks.  Those indictments were ostensibly based on information compiled by an FBI led by the likes of proven liars like Andrew McCabe, Peter Strzok and James Comey.

Hard to imagine why anyone would question the work product of such a sterling cast of characters, right?

If the U.S. intelligence community wants to command the respect of the American people, then it might be a good idea for it to stop working against the interests and the will of the American people.  It might be a good idea to stop sending clear, practiced, transparent liars like Rosenstein and Strzok up to represent it in open congressional hearings.  It might be a good idea to start complying with information requests from congressional committees trying to perform the oversight responsibilities mandated to them in the Constitution.  It might have been a good idea for Mr. Mueller to avoid filling his staff with partisan hacks.

In order to command respect, these myriad alphabet agencies should work on earning it.  What a concept.

But the presser with Putin was just the conclusion of a week filled with events and presidential actions and statements that the leftist, globalist, DC establishment detests, actions that President Trump promised to take throughout the 2016 campaign that ended with his victory over the establishment’s preferred sock puppet, Hillary Clinton.  Those actions included the President pointing out the reality, in clear and blunt terms, that NATO is a long-outdated and costly organization populated mainly by deadbeat European countries who refuse to fulfill their financial obligations.

Those actions included calling out Germany for agreeing to partner with Russia – the ostensible “threat” against which NATO is supposedly there to defend – on a multi-billion dollar natural gas pipeline project.  Those actions included blunt and honest talk about the long abuse of unfair tariffs on U.S. goods by EU nations, and their desire to continue their practice.

Those actions included the President talking about U.S./Russia cooperation with our allies in Israel to ensure Iranian troops and militia in Syria are kept away from the Golan Heights.  They also included Trump’s ongoing commitment to bring our military personnel home from the Syrian hellhole once ISIS has been wiped off the face of the earth, another cooperative effort with Russia that is about 98% complete.  And finally, they included conciliatory public statements towards Putin and Russia (we can be sure he was more forceful and pointed with Putin during their private meeting) in an effort to begin establishing an actual, productive working relationship with the world’s other major nuclear power.

Again, what a concept.

Throughout his 2016 campaign, Mr. Trump proved he was a disciple of the likes of George Washington and Dwight Eisenhower, warning against the needless perpetuation of our military ventures all over the world, many of whose roots go all the way back to World War II.  I end up saying this so often in these Campaign Updates, but I’ll say this again:  None of the things President Trump said and did over this past week in Europe should have come as any surprise at all to anyone who actually has a desire to understand him.  Which of course excludes all Democrats and fake news reporters and warmongering GOP senators.

This is Donald Trump keeping his campaign promises.  He made them repeatedly and without nuance – because he’s pretty much incapable of nuance, after all – and he fully intends to carry them out, just as he has gone about carrying out all of his other campaign promises.

To a large extent, it is Trump’s hyper-focus on keeping the promises he made to the American people that makes him such a foreign, almost alien-seeming entity to the corrupt, globalist DC establishment and fake news media.  They have all become so accustomed to having politicians who say all sorts of stuff to get elected, but then come to DC and just bend to the will of the embedded deep state that they just don’t know how to react to anyone whose behavior doesn’t conform to the DC Borg’s hive mind.

Everything President Trump said and did over this past week were things he promised to do, repeatedly and clearly, throughout the 2016 campaign that got him elected.  The corrupt, globalist DC establishment is incredibly upset that it cannot contain him, and is now refocusing its sights not only on the President, but on his supporters as well.

Supporting Donald Trump was never going to be an easy thing, because he was elected to clean out the greatest den of corruption and sleaze ever created by American society.  He has made an amazing amount of progress in a very short period of time, but there is so much more that remains to be done.  The more he pushes, the harder the deep state establishment and its media minions will fight back, so this is only going to become harder still.

If you abandon him now, they win.  It’s really that simple.

That is all.

First They Came for Donald Trump and we did Nothing; Then They Came for Jim Jordan…

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Tired of all this Winning yet? –  San Fran Nan and her fellow Democrats recoiled in horror at yet another fantastic jobs report, as the private sector added another 213,000 new jobs in June, once again beating analyst expectations.  The jobs report includes new record low unemployment for Hispanic workers and continued record low unemployment for Black workers.  Thus, Democrats went into a panic, with Pelosi issuing a statement claiming that “Donald Trump’s reckless policies are hurting millions of hardworking families.”

Because lying shamelessly is all they got.

A classic case of reflection projection. – After looking in her mirror and asking “Mirror, mirror, on the wall, who’s the fairest of them all?” but getting back only an image of an utterly sick and twisted woman, MSNBC fake journalist Mika Brzezinski decided to call Ivanka Trump an “utterly sick” and “twisted” individual.  It’s like a Walt Disney movie over there at Morning Joe.

A failed attempt to change the subject at NBC. – Scared to death that Donald Trump’s challenge to fake Indian Senator Elizabeth Warren that she take a DNA test to prove her specious claim of Indian ancestry might ultimately prove fatal to their favorite Democrat senator, the news fakers at NBC News decided to move into preemptive strike mode, issued a fake “fact check” on Friday in which they claim that DNA tests just don’t really work so good on Native Americans.  No, really, they did that.  I swear I don’t make this stuff up, but NBC sure does.

NBC’s fake rationale is that, golly, DNA tests don’t really provide proof of “tribal citizenship”, as if that is what anyone is asking for.  In fact, all anyone is asking for is some proof that Warren – a lifelong fraud who has profited richly from the obviously false claim of Indian heritage and based an entire political career on it – in fact has Indian blood coursing through her veins.  “Tribal citizenship” is completely irrelevant to anything, but NBC is so desperate to cover for its favorite Democrat in the Senate that it comes up with this nonsense.  And people in the fake news media wonder why they are so utterly detested by most Americans.

Remember, if they can do this to Jim Jordan, they can do it to you. – Ohio Congressman Jim Jordan has become the latest target of the Deep State cabal.  Less than a week after he humiliated head Deep State honcho Rod Rosenstein in a hearing before the House Judiciary Committee, several former wrestlers for Ohio State – where Jordan was an assistant wrestling coach back in the day – suddenly came scurrying out of the woodwork to level allegations that Jordan was aware that a team doctor (now conveniently dead, of course) was sexually abusing team members and did nothing to stop it.

The accusations center around allegations that the team doctor insisted on giving team members hernia tests each time he examined them.  For all you ladies and those who never played high school sports, the hernia test consists of the the doctor placing two fingers underneath a man’s testicles and telling the athlete to turn his head and cough.  If you went out for football, basketball or baseball, you were administered one of these tests by the team doctor before the season’s first practice, and likely any time you sustained any sort of injury, if your doctor was cautious.

Given the extreme physical nature of the sport of wrestling, it’s actually very easy to see why a team’s doctor would want to conduct such exams more frequently, and any group of high school and college-aged men would inevitably resort to joking about such an uncomfortable process.  One of Jordan’s accusers – who was of course given copious air time by CNN this week – even stated that the doctor administered this test every time a wrestler had to be examined.  This is not “sexual abuse,” this is a doctor doing his job.

Out of this, we now have a handful of former Ohio State wrestlers suing the University with claims the the doctor was a “serial groper”, as one of the wrestlers put it on CNN.  And guess what law firm happens to be representing the plaintiffs?  None other than the infamous Perkins Coie, the same firm that was paid millions by the Clinton Campaign and the DNC to dummy up the fake Trump Dossier during the 2016 presidential campaign.  The same firm that has close ties to DOJ lawyer Bruce Ohr, who officed just two doors down from …wait for it…Rod Rosenstein before he was demoted last December.

So now Congressman Jordan – who just happens to be one of the three candidates to succeed the outgoing Paul Ryan as Speaker of the House – finds himself having to somehow defend himself over vague accusations that he “had to know” that a doctor was doing someone’s notion of too many testicular exams of his wrestling team’s members.  It’s like having to respond when a lawyer asks you “how often to you beat your kids?”

This is the Deep State in action, folks.  It is slimy like James Comey, oily like Rod Rosenstein and as un-American as Barack Obama’s legacy.  If they can do this to Jim Jordan, a powerful congressman from Ohio, just think what they can do to you.

Just another day in the DC Swamp is alive and well America.

That is all.

The FBI’s Deep State Cabal Continues to Unravel, One Slimey Thread at a Time

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Yeah, that?  That’s a terrible idea.  But let’s go ahead and do it anyway. – Not one, but two of the dumbest decisions in American history were announced yesterday by completely unrelated businesses, and amazingly, neither of those businesses was named Starbucks.

First, the dimwits who run the Miss America Pageant, which literally began in the 1920s as nothing but a swimsuit competition designed to keep tourists in Atlantic City for a week past Labor Day, announced they would be cancelling the pageant’s… wait for it…swimsuit competition!

Thus ensuring that, in about 5 years, we won’t have the Miss America Pageant to kick around anymore.  Adios!

Second, the people at IHOP – aka, the International House of Pancakes – one of the most iconic breakfast houses in American history, have come up with the genius idea of changing the acronym to “IHOB.”  The catch is that they aren’t telling anybody what the “B” stands for until next Monday, but hey, just guessing here, it might just stand for “Breakfast” since that’s what the chain specializes in.

Thus ensuring that we won’t have IHOP to kick around anymore after Monday, and probably won’t have IHOB to kick around anymore in about 5 years from now.

Who makes decisions like this?  Seriously.

Ok, Bill, tell us something we don’t already know. – The FBI’s Chief of Counterintelligence, Bill Priestap, spent 8 hours testifying behind closed doors to a joint meeting of the House Judiciary and House Oversight Committees about his role and the role of others in the FBI’s sham investigation of the Pantsuit Princess’s email scandal.

While others involved the fake investigation have either lost their jobs (James Comey, Andrew McCabe, James Baker, Lisa Page) or been demoted and reassigned since last November (Peter Strzok, Bruce Ohr), Priestap has conspicuously remained in his job, where he served as Super Duper Agent Peter Strzok’s direct boss.  This has lead to much speculation that he has long been a cooperating witness for ongoing DOJ investigations being conducted by Inspector General Michael Horowitz and U.S. Attorney John Huber.

The most interesting part about Priestap’s 8 hours on the stand, as far as the public knows, is that none of his testimony has yet been leaked to the New York Times or the Washington Post.  We can be absolutely certain sure that if anything Priestap said was positive for the Democrats or the Fainting Felon it would have already appeared in stories by both of those newspapers.

The only leak as of this writing comes from Catherine Herridge at Fox News, who reported late yesterday that a “source” said Priestap testified that Strzok’s role in the FBI’s shenanigans was even more extensive than we already know, which, given that we already know that he was involved in literally every.  damn.  thing. hardly seems possible.  But there you are.

Priestap’s long-awaited testimony appears to be one step in setting the stage for the release of Horowitz’s also long-awaited report on the fake email investigation and other Coughing Crook-related matters that the FBI chose to cover up during the Obama years.  Interestingly, a second such step took place yesterday afternoon…

Life sure does come at you fast, huh Andy? – Hey, remember when ex-Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe assured everyone that he hadn’t ever done anything wrong late last year?  And remember when he threatened to sue President Trump for slander?  And remember when he threatened to take everybody down with him if he was fired before his pension was fully vested?  And remember when he got fired and wrote that scathing op/ed for the Washington Post claiming he had done nothing wrong and it was all such a huge injustice?  And remember how he did that Gofundme campaign and got a bunch of idiotic suckers to give him half a million dollars for his legal defense fund?  And remember how several Democrat members of congress offered to give him jobs so he could be employed long enough to fully earn his pension?

Yeah…good times…good times.

Late yesterday, this very same Andrew McCabe had his high-paid lawyer send a letter to Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley begging for immunity from criminal prosecution in exchange for testimony before the Committee.  Funny how all that bravado and unbridled hubris starts to disappear as the wheels of justice roll inexorably in these folks’ direction.

Just a note about that IG report… – If you’re feeling frustrated at the constant delays in getting this report released, trust me, you have plenty of company.  Including me.

But here’s the way to look at this:  The people who are the subjects of the IG investigation and still working within the FBI and DOJ have now had this report in-hand for almost three weeks.  Sean Hannity was reporting that yesterday as if it is something unusual, but it is in fact standard operating procedure:  Any current employee accused of wrongdoing by the IG is given an opportunity to respond and offer exculpatory evidence before these reports are made public.

But in those three weeks, not a word of this report has been leaked to the fake news media.  Given the number of bad actors within the DOJ and FBI who are subjects of this investigation, you can be sure that if anything in this report was positive for their case, it would have already appeared in the aforementioned house organs for the Deep State.

This report is not going to be everything you want it to be – reports of investigations like this never are.  But it’s obviously not everything the Deep State wants it to be either, because if it was we’d already know about it.

Remember the old proverb:  “The wheels of justice turn slowly, but they grind exceedingly fine.”

Just another day in the unraveling deep state America.

That is all.

The Deep State and its Media Enablers Need Better Talking Points

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

The North Korea Summit is cancelled!!!!  Woo-hooooooo!!!! Kim wins!!!! Break out the champagne!!!!  Oh, wait, it may be back on?  Trump sandbagged us again?  Isn’t there a plane crash or school shooting we can report on instead? – As we noted in Friday morning’s Campaign Update, Thursday was a day of anti-American celebration in the nation’s fake news media and among Democrat officials everywhere, as they all thought that President Trump’s letter “cancelling” the scheduled June 12 summit meeting with the Crazy Little Fat Guy in North Korea had produced a victory for their favorite brutal dictator, and a loss for their hated U.S. President.

All the celebrations and snarky remarks suddenly gave way to disappointment and subject-shifting on Friday, as Kim Jong Un issued communications making it clear he is anxious to move forward with the meeting, and President Trump and other U.S. officials said there was a chance the June 12 meeting might still take place after all.  The toothy smiles displayed on Thursday by the on-air fake talent at CNN and MSNBC gave way to pouty frowns as it became suddenly obvious to even the dimmest bulbs at the two fakest news channels that they and their Democrat buddies had been presidentially trolled yet again.

So they did what fake editors and fake reporters and fake talking heads always do and shifted the subject to something else, like the ever-reliable fake Russia Collusion fantasy play.

Speaking of which, the detestable deep state snake John Brennan (who has just got to be the role model for the Dar Adol character on “Homeland” – those who watch that show will know what I’m talking about), who has spent his entire career warping reality to fit the deep state’s preferred narrative of the day, on Friday told some fake interviewer that President Trump is  “masterful at… twisting the truth in order to support his narrative.”  Pot, meet kettle.

Brennan also spent a great deal of time parroting James Comey’s and James Clapper’s tortured distinctions between what is a “spy” as opposed to what constitutes a “confidential source.”  Note to deep state coup cabal participants:  If you are having to spend weeks attempting to redefine terms like “spy” and “spying” when the public is already aware of tons of proof that you sent “spies” into the Trump Campaign and transition team to “spy” on them, you are in deep, deep doo-doo.  Even deeper than the doo-doo you normally gladly inhabit.

Of course, this joint media/Democrat/Comey/Clapper/Brennan effort to redefine what the words “spy” and “spying” mean is just the latest iteration in the evolution of their response to the steady drip-drip-drip of proof that the Obama Administration conspired to fix the 2016 election for the Pantsuit Princes.  It is in fact the sixth stage of this ill-conceived effort to deceive that we have witnessed since last January:

  • Ridiculing claims by President Trump that his campaign was spied on;
  • Lying to multiple congressional committees about claims the Trump campaign was spied on;
  • Attempting to criminalize claims that the Trump campaign was spied on;
  • Admitting that, well, yes we spied on the Trump campaign, but it was for his own good and he should have been happy about it;
  • Saying of course we spied on the Trump campaign because it was our patriotic duty;
  • And now, a classic Clintonian effort to parse what the meaning of “spying” is.

It has devolved to this for the simple fact that, at the end of the day, this desperate effort to parse words and terms is all they’ve got.  They’ve been caught with their filthy hands in the cookie jar.

Now, they’re all facing the final stages of the slow-rolling revelations of their massive wrongdoing as former and current FBI agents are coming out of the woodwork, volunteering to testify before congressional committees about what they witnessed while all the shenanigans were going on.  First up in this parade will be Bill Priestap, the Chief of the FBI’s Counterintelligence Division, who was the boss of FBI Super-Duper Agent Peter Strzok during the coup effort.

He will be joined in June by two other agents  – Michael Steinbach, formerly head of the agency’s national security division; and Steinbach’s predecessor, John Giacalone – as witnesses before the House Oversight Committee and House Judiciary Committee.  Priestap’s testimony should be especially compelling given his likely role in the whole thing – he was frequently mentioned in Strzok’s texts with his lover Lisa Page – and the probability that he has remained  in his job most likely because he’s been cooperating with the investigations by DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz and Salt Lake City U.S. Attorney John Huber.

In addition to the coming parade of FBI agents testifying before congress, Brennan/Clapper/Comey and their fake media support group also face the impending release of the next report from Horowitz, which covers the fake investigation in to the Coughing Crook’s email scandal and other Hillary-related matters.

It’s going to be awesome to see what new line of tortured talking points the cabal and their media support group come up with next.

Just another day in the plot to take down a president keeps crumbling America.

That is all.

Every Day is “Opposite Day” in the Fake U.S. News Media

The Evening Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

If you’re shocked at the utterly dishonest manner in which the entirety of the fake mainstream media is covering Spygate (thanks to President Trump for coining that shorthand term today), well, you need to pay closer attention to the Campaign Update and less attention to CNN.

Here’s the short message about this 100% “Opposite Day” coverage:  Get used to it, because it’s going to continue.  At this point in the saga, fake media outlets who have served as nothing but leak receptacles for the Deep State Cabal within the FBI/DOJ for the last 2 years have no choice but to keep coordinating fake narratives with the perps.

And boy, are the perps spreading a fake narrative.  Clapper’s on The View, telling the View Shrews that the Trump should be grateful for the FBI’s efforts to illegally surveil and entrap no fewer than half a dozen members of his campaign.

Ex-FBI Director and current teenage drama queen James Comey’s out there issuing tweets like this one…

…which of course perfectly describes the 8 years of Obama that Americans had had enough of when they went to the polls on November 8, 2016 and elected Donald Trump to the presidency.  But Comey’s either too dense or just too dishonest to realize it.

Interestingly, John Brennan, who the President went after on his own Twitter account on Tuesday, has remained oddly quiet since his Cicero-quoting outburst on Sunday.  But rest assured that can’t last – this is one seditious drama queen who, like Clapper and Comey, simply can’t contain himself.

And hey, when you have The View Shrews, Jake Tapper and the other class clowns at CNN, and the entire staffs at the New York Times and Washington Post eagerly waiting to take dictation from you and spread your false narrative, why not?

The most hilarious part of this comes when some fake reporter or opinionist manages to take a step back and realize that for President Trump, the mass media immolation that is going on is completely to his advantage.  Times fake columnist Frank Bruni went through an incredibly rare moment of clarity on Tuesday with a piece titled “Robert Mueller, You’re Starting to Scare Me.”  In this semi-lucid screed, Bruni frets that all the media focus on the Mueller investigation actually helps Trump enact his agenda by distracting the public’s attention away from all the other things he’s getting accomplished.

Well, welcome to the party, pal.  I’ve been writing about this reality for a freaking year now.  Good of you to suddenly try to catch up.

But trust me, Bruni’s fret is just a flash in the pan at the NYTimes, a one-off that won’t be repeated because it does not fit the narrative the Deep State Cabal is pushing.  Expect to see far less semi-clear thought pieces like Bruni’s, and far more utterly backwards reasoning in stories like this “analysis” from the fake newsers at the ongoing massive dumpster fire that is NBC News:

 

This is me, slapping my damn head reading that tweet.  Ho Lee Cow.

That is all.

Monday Will be a Very Bad Day for the Deep State Cabal

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

The liberal education bubble in action! – The Pantsuit Princess was given an award by Harvard University on Sunday for her “transformative impact on society.”  Wait, wait, wait – before you guffaw, or vomit at the absurdity of this, think it fully through.

The Coughing Crook has indeed had “transformative impacts” on our society.  Here are a few examples:

  • She “transformed” the U.S. State Department into a classic mob influence racket;
  • She “transformed” 20 percent of U.S. uranium supplies into Russian hands;
  • She and her husband “transformed” a charitable foundation into another mob influence racket;
  • She “transformed” the FBI into a full-fledged criminal enterprise.

But hey, it hasn’t been all bad.  At the end of the day, the Fainting Felon, more than anyone else, gave us Donald J. Trump as President.  Thanks, Hillary!

Today is going to be a big, big day. – I closed yesterday’s Campaign Update by point out that a tweet President Trump issued on Saturday indicated that he was considering taking the big step of declassifying some of the documents that DOJ and the FBI have been withholding from congress for many months.  Little did I know that that tweet was just the trickle of the presidential Twitter flood to come.

By noon Central Time, President Trump had issued a series of nine additional tweets, the text of which reads as follows, in the order in which they were posted:

  • Things are really getting ridiculous. The Failing and Crooked (but not as Crooked as Hillary Clinton) has done a long & boring story indicating that the World’s most expensive Witch Hunt has found nothing on Russia & me so now they are looking at the rest of the World!
  • ….At what point does this soon to be $20,000,000 Witch Hunt, composed of 13 Angry and Heavily Conflicted Democrats and two people who have worked for Obama for 8 years, STOP! They have found no Collussion with Russia, No Obstruction, but they aren’t looking at the corruption…
  • …in the Hillary Clinton Campaign where she deleted 33,000 Emails, got $145,000,000 while Secretary of State, paid McCabes wife $700,000 (and got off the FBI hook along with Terry M) and so much more. Republicans and real Americans should start getting tough on this Scam.
  • Now that the Witch Hunt has given up on Russia and is looking at the rest of the World, they should easily be able to take it into the Mid-Term Elections where they can put some hurt on the Republican Party. Don’t worry about Dems FISA Abuse, missing Emails or Fraudulent Dossier!
  • What ever happened to the Server, at the center of so much Corruption, that the Democratic National Committee REFUSED to hand over to the hard charging (except in the case of Democrats) FBI? They broke into homes & offices early in the morning, but were afraid to take the Server?
  • ….and why hasn’t the Podesta brother been charged and arrested, like others, after being forced to close down his very large and successful firm? Is it because he is a VERY well connected Democrat working in the Swamp of Washington, D.C.?
  • The Witch Hunt finds no Collusion with Russia – so now they’re looking at the rest of the World. Oh’ great!
  • I hereby demand, and will do so officially tomorrow, that the Department of Justice look into whether or not the FBI/DOJ infiltrated or surveilled the Trump Campaign for Political Purposes – and if any such demands or requests were made by people within the Obama Administration!

Ok, let me catch my breath.  Where to begin?  First, let’s just concede that this was the most awesome tweetstorm in the history of tweetstorms.  In 9 tweets, containing a total of about 300 total words, the President of the United states pretty much summed up his own frustrations as well as the frustrations of about half of the country with regards to the obvious, blatant dual system of law enforcement – or lack thereof – that has been practiced within the FBI and DOJ for the past three years.

It is a dual standard, it is a witch hunt, it is a situation in which our ostensible law enforcement agencies are allowing obvious, blatant criminals to walk free on the streets and receive awards from universities like Harvard.  These are people who have betrayed our country, abused its institutions for massive personal monetary rewards, shared its highest secrets with the entire globe and who did their very best to outright steal a presidential election.

We also have a situation in which the conspirators within the FBI, DOJ and CIA who conspired to rig an election and then take down a president now fully admit that they did spy on the opposition party’s presidential campaign, and then repeatedly, bald-facedly lied about it all under oath to various congressional committees and, with the help of their media allies, to the public at large.

So, the President who was the target of the conspiracy is upset about it all?  Go figure.

The very sweaty Rod Rosenstein, whose ill-considered appointment of his pal Robert Mueller as Special Counsel marks one of the low points in all of this, responded to the President’s final tweet within a few hours by announcing he was instructing DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz to expand his investigation to include “whether the FBI held a political motive in the counterintelligence investigation,” i.e., their spying on the Trump Campaign.

Consider the specific wording of that sentence.  Why is it worded that way?  Because Horowitz has already been investigating the FBI spying operation for months.  Back on March 28, when Attorney General Jeff Sessions expanded the scope of the IG’s investigation, the authorization letter included this language: “As part of this examination, the OIG will also review information that was known to the DOJ and the FBI at the time the [FISA warrant] applications were filed from or about an alleged FBI confidential source.  Additionally, the IG will review the DOJ’s and the FBI’s relationship and communications with the alleged source as they relate to the FISC applications.”

Here’s what’s probably going to happen today, judging from the President’s tweets, which by the way were obviously drafted with help from his lawyers and probably Chief of Staff John Kelly:

  • Rosenstein’s reaction to add it all to the IG’s plate is a good start, but probably not enough.  The President may well ask for a second special counsel to be appointed, or perhaps demand that Sessions appoint a U.S. attorney to perform a criminal investigation of some of the obvious criminal activity that Mueller refuses to address;
  • The President may well also announce he is using his constitutional authority to declassify certain documents – such as the letters Rosenstein used to appoint Mueller and expand the scope of his investigation – that Rosenstein and the FBI have refused to provide to Congress;
  • If Mr. Trump takes such action, Rosenstein will in all likelihood offer his resignation, which the President would no doubt accept.

Then there’s Jeff Sessions, our seemingly too-often-absent Attorney General.  There are two common schools of thought about Mr. Sessions:

  • He’s just another deep state operative and will never do anything to bring the real criminals in all of this to justice; or
  • He’s been carefully biding his time, awaiting the issuance of the IG reports and doing everything by the book before springing his carefully-constructed trap on the nation’s enemies.  He’s had Utah U.S. Attorney John Huber investigating all of this in coordination with Horowitz, and indictments and trials will follow shortly after the IG’s work is complete and relevant criminal referrals have been made.

I want to believe the latter scenario about Sessions is the case, because if it isn’t, then all is lost and none of this matters.  If the latter is the case, then things are about to come to a head very, very quickly.  If the first scenario is true about Sessions, then we may see him either resign or be fired outright this week as well.  Because the President has had enough of this crap, and really, who can blame him?

Boom.

Just another day in some of you laughed last Friday when I told you things were about to move very, very quickly America.

That is all.
