Democrats Now Say July 4 is a “White Supremacy” Celebration

Every time you think they can’t get any more depraved, demented and despicable, the Democrat Party leaders go and prove you wrong. – Last night, in I guess an effort to show solidarity with a handful of radical activists from the American Indian community, the official Twitter feed of the Democrat Party – @TheDemocrats – did this:

First, let’s look at the claims in that tweet: They are all completely false. The Trump Administration has made no effort to limit voting rights for Native Americans, and has gone to heroic lengths to ensure their communities have had access to the same medical relief related to COVID-19 that every other American has received. Those are simply despicable lies spread by activists who can never be satisfied, much of whose anger stems from President Trump’s refusal to continue Obama’s patently illegal blocking of the Dakota Access Pipeline, which he allowed to be completed in 2017.

From the piece at the Guardian, here is what one activist says about Mount Rushmore and “white supremacy”:

“Mount Rushmore is a symbol of white supremacy, of structural racism that’s still alive and well in society today,” said Nick Tilsen, a member of the Oglala Lakota tribe and the president of a local activist organization called NDN Collective.

“It’s an injustice to actively steal indigenous people’s land then carve the white faces of the conquerors who committed genocide.”

While some activists, like Tilsen, want to see the monument removed altogether and the Black Hills region returned to the Lakota, others have called for a share in the economic benefits from the region and the tourists it attracts.

[End]

No question, the U.S. government in the 18th and 19th centuries  – and even in the early 20th century – committed heinous acts against Indian populations in America. But the Mount Rushmore monument is now a national park and has been for many decades. The federal government has an absolute right to hold a fireworks display in a national park if it chooses to do so. Many Democrat presidents of the past have done exactly that.

My favorite part of the Guardian story is that it repeats the specious and unfounded claim that Mount Rushmore’s initial sculptor, Gutzon Borglum, was a member of the Ku Klux Klan. If that were true – and there is no proof that it is – that would mean that there is about a 99.9% chance that Borglum was in fact a Democrat, given that the KKK was nothing other than the military wing of the Democrat Party.

The Guardian is so journalistically depraved and careless that it also includes the almost certainly false claim that Teddy Roosevelt once said that, “I don’t go so far as to think that the only good Indians are dead Indians, but I believe nine out of every 10 are.” That claim is like a typical article in the New York Times – based on complete hearsay with no real supporting evidence.

The Democrats have since deleted that tweet, which seems odd, because doing that would almost display a sense of shame and self-awareness, which we all know are not a part of the makeup of any leading Democrat these days. Plus, the taking-down of the tweet happened too quickly for the party to have taken a poll to gauge the public response to it, which is how the Party makes pretty much any decision. So, it’s hard to explain.

In any event, it is now a thing that, to be a member in good standing of the Democrat Party, one must oppose July 4 celebrations and presumably view the literal founding day of our nation, the seminal event that created what has become the greatest nation in human history, as nothing more than a “white supremacist” event.

All you Democrat voters out there must be so darn proud to support this stuff.

Another Tucker Carlson Opening Monologue Every American Should See

Tucker Carlson’s opening monologue last night was a brilliant exposition of the manner in which our nation’s leaders have used a public health emergency to subvert American democracy. If we don’t all wake up soon – including President Trump and his military leaders – the consequences could become too ingrained to be peacefully reversed.

This is a monologue every American needs to watch and read. Thus, I, your loyal servant, hereby provide the clip of the video, along with a painstakingly-compiled transcript for those of you who still prefer to read stuff.

Video Clip:

Transcript:

Millions of Americans remain subjected to unprecedented restrictions on their personal lives, their daily lives, their family lives. The coronavirus lockdowns continue in many places. You may not know that because it gets no publicity, but it’s true.

If you’re living under it, you definitely know. As a result of this, tens of millions of people are now unemployed. A huge number of them have no prospects of working again. Many thousands of small businesses are closed and will never reopen.

Many Americans have become dependent on drugs and alcohol, seen their marriages dissolved, become clinically depressed. Some of them have delayed their weddings. Others were banned by the government from burying their loved ones and funerals. Some Americans will die of cancer because they couldn’t get cancer screenings. Some unknown number have taken their own lives in despair. Others have flooded to the streets to riot because bottled up rage and frustration take many forms.

The cost of shutting down the United States and denying our citizens desperately needed contact with one another is hard to calculate, but the cost has been staggering. The people responsible for doing all this, they have no regrets about it.  “We faced a global calamity,” they say. “COVID-19 was the worst pandemic since the Spanish flu.”

That flu killed 50 million people.

“We had no choice. We did the right thing.” That’s what they’re telling us. Is it true? The answer to that question matters not just because the truth always matters, but because the credibility of our leaders is at stake here.

This is the biggest decision they made in our lifetimes. They were able to make it, they rule because we let them. Their power comes from us.

So the question now and always is, are they worthy of that power? That’s not a conversation they want to have. And right now, they don’t have to have that conversation because right now, all of us are distracted and mesmerized by the woke revolution underway outside. They created a separate country in Seattle. As we said, we will bring you the latest on that in just a minute.

But we think it’s worth taking a pause to assess whether or not they were, in fact, lying to us about the coronavirus and our response to it. The short answer is this: Yes, they were definitely lying.

As a matter of public health, conclusively, the lockdowns were not necessary. In fact, we can prove that and here’s the most powerful evidence — states that never locked down at all, states, where people were allowed to live like Americans and not cower in indoors alone, in the end, turned out no worse than did states that had mandatory quarantine, the states you probably live in.

The states that did lock down and were quick to reopen have not seen explosions of coronavirus cases. All of this is the opposite of what they said would happen with great confidence.

The media predicted mass death in places of Lake of the Ozark and Ocean City, Maryland — the place where the middle class dares to vacation. But those deaths never happened.

In the end, the Wuhan coronavirus turned out to be a dangerous disease but a manageable disease like so many others. Far more dangerous were the lockdowns themselves.

For example, in New York, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Massachusetts — panicked and incompetent governors forced nursing homes to accept infected coronavirus patients. And as a result, many thousands died and they died needlessly. This is all a remarkable story but its going almost entirely uncovered.

The media would rather tell you why you need to hate your neighbor for the color of his skin. The media definitely don’t want to revisit what they were saying just a few weeks ago, whend they were acting as press agents for power-drunk Democratic politicians. Back then, news anchors were ordering you to stop asking questions and obey.

[Plays montage of CNN/MSNBC anchors lying about the Wuhan Virus]

Boy, that montage was the opposite of a Mensa meeting. Has that much dumbness been captured on tape, ever? The last clip you saw was from May 25. That was just over two weeks ago. “98,000 people are dead! How dare you leave your house?” If you don’t work in the media, you’re not essential.

But it didn’t take long for that message to change completely. In fact, it took precisely 5 days.

[Plays another montage of Don Lemon being an idiot, which he does quite well.]

Yeah, “don’t judge, this is how this country was started, by looting CVS and setting fire to Wendy’s. You took American history. You knew that!”

[Plays another montage of Chris Cuomo.]

One minute they were mass murderers for going outside. Now they are Sam Adams. They are patriots, they are American heroes.

If all of this seems like a pretty abrupt pivot, fret not. Rioting is not a health risk – as long as it helps the Democratic Party’s prospects in the November election, rioting will not spread the coronavirus.

Sounds implausible, but we can be certain of that because last week hundreds of self-described public health officials signed a letter saying something. They announced that the Black Lives Matter riots are a ‘vital contribution to public health.’ In effect, they’re an essential medical procedure.

But that doesn’t mean you get to go outside. You don’t. Thanks to coronavirus, you do not have the right to resume your life. And if you complain about that, it’s quote, “white nationalism.” That was a ‘professional’ conclusion.

Does a single American believe any of that? No, of course not. It is too stupid to even for CNN to repeat, so they mostly ignored it.

That’s an ominous side if you think about it. It means these people are done trying to convince you, even to fool you. They’re not making arguments, they are issuing decrees. They think they can. They no longer believe they need your consent to make big decisions to run the country. Once the authority stops trying to change your mind, even by deceit, it means they’ve decided to use force, and they have.

During the lockdowns, people whose loved ones died were not allowed to have funerals for them. Think about that; it’s hard to think of anything crueler, but it happened to a lot of people. They claimed it was necessary. It was not necessary, and we know that they because now that a man has died whose death is politically useful to Democratic Party, the authorities have given him three funerals and not a word about a health risk.

Or consider King County, Washington — that’s where Seattle is. Restaurants in King County are operating at just 25% capacity. That’s the law now. Nonessential businesses are allowed 15% capacity. The effect of that is an economic disaster. Most small businesses run on very small margins. They can’t survive for long, and many have failed.

What should they do? They should join Antifa, obviously, because in King County, Washington, Antifa can do whatever they want to do. They’ve taken an entire six-block section of downtown Seattle, and that’s fine with health authorities. There is no social distancing required. They are essential.

Are you getting the picture? Is this adding up to our message? Yeah, the message is:  you were played. We were all played, corrupt politicians scared us into giving up control over the most basic questions in our own lives. At the same time, they gave more power to their obedient followers like Antifa while keeping the rest of us trapped at home and censored online.

In other words, they used a public health emergency to subvert democracy and instill themselves as monarchs. How are they able to do this? The sad truth is they did it because we let them do it. We believed them, they are therefore we obeyed them. If there’s anything good to come out of this disaster, it’s that none of us will ever make that mistake again.

[End]

Take that all to heart, friends, because it is the plain, unvarnished truth.

That is all.

Clinton/Kerry Advisor Breaks the Democrat Omerta on Biden [UPDATED]

The Evening Campaign Update

Things are getting pretty hairy for Quid Pro China Joe Biden, though he is most likely blissfully unaware of it all. The video clip released on Friday of Tara Reade’s mother calling in to the Larry King Live show in 1993 to talk about Biden’s alleged sexual assault on her daughter has been making the rounds on social media all day. More importantly, the implications of the video – that, unlike any of the liar accusers of Brett Kavanaugh, it demonstrates clear contemporaneous proof that Ms. Reade told family and friends about Biden’s abuse and harassment – are beginning to sink in on the few remaining Democrats who still have a conscience.

One such Democrat apparently is Democrat operative Peter Daou, who served as an advisor to both John Kerry and Hillary Clinton. After seeing the video of Reade’s mother’s call-in to King, Daou on Saturday posted a thread on Twitter begging Creepy Uncle Joe to quit the race. The full text of that thread appears below, but first, here is the video clip for those who have not yet seen it:

Now, the thread by Mr. Daou:

It continues…

4. Defeating Trump is NOT OPTIONAL. 5. To avoid potential catastrophe in Nov., #Biden should withdraw. 6. #Warren, #Harris, #Klobuchar, #Buttigieg, #Castro, etc. could replace Biden. 7. #Bernie can restart his campaign. 8. We can reboot the primary and give voters a choice.

9. This is the ethical position AND the smarter strategy to beat Trump. 10. We lose ALL moral authority if we embrace “the lesser of two accused rapists.” 11. Polls show other Dem candidates can win. PRINCIPLES MATTER. WE CAN BEAT TRUMP AND PROTECT OUR VALUES.

ADDENDUM 1: I made the same arguments about #Franken and #Kavanaugh. If #MeToo means anything, it CANNOT BE APPLIED ON A PARTISAN BASIS. And for the record, I also think the same standard should apply to Bill Clinton’s accusers.

ADDENDUM 2: My thread is not about #Bernie winning. I explicitly stated that Biden can be replaced with any of the other Dem candidates and we can restart the primary and give voters a choice. This is about RED MORAL LINES. Sexual assault is unquestionably one of those lines.

ADDENDUM 3: I want to defeat Trump and the GOP as much as anyone in America. I’ve spent my life fighting them. But we cannot defeat Trump with a lesser of evils approach. If you really want to win, DO NOT COMPROMISE BASIC MORAL STANDARDS. It is a sure formula for losing.

ADDENDUM 4: Spare me the “you’re helping Trump” b.s. The only Dems helping Trump are Pelosi, Schumer, and their establishment colleagues who have given him a space force, Patriot Act, trade bill, ICE funding, and all the rightwing judges his heart desires.

[End]

Obviously, if you hadn’t already figured it out, Daou is also a big fan of The Commie, Bernie Sanders, and supported him during the primary season, which, as he points out, hasn’t ended yet.

But…Daou is about to discover some harsh truths about the Democrat Party. The first being that, to the Democrats, PRINCIPLES DON’T MATTER, no matter how many tweets you issue in all caps wishing they did.

The second being that the #MeToo movement also has no principles, means nothing and in this case most certainly WILL BE APPIED ON A PARTISAN BASIS. If you think for one second that prominent #MeToo hypocrites like Alyssa Milano are going to suddenly develop a conscience and toss their favorite Unfrozen Caveman Senator overboard after having spent the last solid year ignoring the crystal clear reality of his rapidly declining cognitive state, you are living on Fantasy Island.

The third thing Mr. Daou is going to discover is that, before issuing his Twitter thread, he probably should have taken a moment to reflect on the fact that the consequences for Bill Clinton’s being a lifelong serial abuser of women were that he served two terms as Arkansas Governor, two terms as U.S. President and became fabulously wealthy and praised by Democrat hypocrites once he left office.

In other words, Daou’s decision to become the first semi-prominent Democrat to break the Party’s hush order on the Reade allegations is likely to end up being far more damaging to him than it is Quid Pro China Joe, unless other semi-prominent Dems decide to join him. If that happens, things could eventually get pretty dicey for Biden, even though he mostly likely won’t even understand it’s happening.

UPDATE: In what has to be considered an important development, CNN corrupt talking head Chris Cillizza becomes the first person from that despicable organization to break the silence on the Read allegations with this tweet:

Oh, my. Oh, my, my, my. Stay tuned.

 

Joe Biden Gets Trolled With His Cringey 'I'm On Team Joe' Campaign ...

Down Goes the Commie! Down Goes the Commie!

Obligatory post noting the inevitable – Bernie Sanders cancels his campaign following his latest loss to Dementia Joe Biden in Wisconsin.

From a report in the New York Times:

Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont dropped out of the Democratic presidential race on Wednesday, concluding a quest for the White House that began five years ago in relative obscurity but ultimately elevated him as a champion of the working class, a standard-bearer of American liberalism and the leader of a self-styled political revolution.

Mr. Sanders’s exit from the race establishes former Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr. as the presumptive nominee to challenge President Trump, and leaves the progressive movement without a prominent voice in the 2020 race.

In a live stream on Wednesday morning, Mr. Sanders, eloquent but without his characteristic spark, was by turns gracious and resolute as he announced his decision. “I cannot in good conscience continue to mount a campaign that cannot win and which would interfere with the important work required of all of us in this difficult hour,” Mr. Sanders said.

Though he made it clear that he viewed Mr. Biden as the party’s 2020 nominee, he said he would remain on the ballot in states that still have primaries and would continue to gather delegates — a move that would give him leverage to influence the Democratic platform and continue carrying his message.

[End]

Ok, so, he’s “suspending” his campaign, but will remain on the ballot and hopes to keep accumulating delegates. That way, he’ll be able to exert maximum pressure to ensure the Democrat Party keeps pushing his Marxist ideology on the public. I’m sure Dementia Joe’s handlers are thrilled about that part of the deal.

Here is how President Donald Trump hilariously responded to the news of the Commie’s demise:

No word on where Mr. Sanders’ 4th vacation home will be located, or what model new car he demanded in return for ending his latest quest for the presidency, but you can be sure he squeezed as much out of this opportunity as he possibly could.

Adios, Commie.

How Long Before Biden Bows Out?

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

Great dates in American Politics. – Exactly 32 years ago today, on September 23, 1987, Joe Biden, hair plugs intact, withdrew his name from consideration for the 1988 Democrat presidential nomination:

Image may contain: 1 person

Biden’s withdrawal from his first run for the presidency came after it had been revealed that he had plagiarized from a speech given in the UK earlier that same year by British Labor Party leader Neil Kinnock. Biden didn’t just lift a word here and there from Kinnock’s speech, mind you – he stole almost the entire thing. Which is pretty amazing, considering the Kinnock’s speech was an autobiographical recounting of his own life. That’s what kind of a brazen thief Joe Biden proved himself to be at the tender age of 44.

As this whole fake “whistleblower” non-scandal being promoted by the Democrat/Media propaganda complex continues to have the unintended effect of causing the reality of Biden and his family’s self-dealings to profit from the office of the vice presidency from 2009-2016, I’m beginning to think the nation’s Unfrozen Caveman Senator and least-favorite Creepy Uncle might end up having to deliver another similar withdrawal speech within the next week or two.

Bear with me here.

As I have written these Campaign Updates almost every day for the past three years now, I have repeatedly reminded readers of several recurring realities in our nation’s politics. Two of those recurring realities are especially relevant here. They are:

Projection is the Democrats’ favorite Alinsky tactic – Whenever you see Democrats accusing President Donald Trump or some other Republican of bad behavior, it is a near-100% certainty that the Democrats are in fact themselves guilty of that exact behavior; and

Whenever you see the Democrat/Media propaganda complex ridiculing Donald Trump for something he has said or Tweeted, it is a near-100% certainty that whatever Trump is saying or tweeting is absolutely true.

Think about how this whole fake controversy began last week: A fake “whistleblower” who has zero first-hand information lodges a complaint against the President, alleging that he intimidated the President of Ukraine in a discussion about corruption in that country. Now, think about what everyone paying attention has learned since: That Joe Biden actually did intimidate Ukrainian officials in 2016, blackmailing them by withholding $1 billion in U.S. aid until they fired a prosecutor who was investigating his son’s company. We know without any doubt that Biden did this because we have video of him bragging about doing it at a public forum.

Oh, hey, the President tweeted about that tape on Saturday:

 

Let’s take a look at some of President Trump’s tweets in response to this fake controversy, tweets that have been ridiculed by the Democrat/Media complex:

That was tweeted early on Sunday, and by the end of the day, the stories about Hunter Biden and other Biden family members becoming fabulously wealthy in sketchy business deals while Creepy Uncle Joe was VEEP were floating all over social media.

But wait, there’s more:

Here is the simple, inescapable reality: Just as Rudy Giuliani told John Roberts on Fox News Sunday, the Democrats and their media toadies have fallen into a trap here. No matter how hard they try, the fake news media outlets cannot contain this story on behalf of Creepy Uncle Joe and his ne’er-do-well son.

This all exposes the real Achilles’ Heel of the Democrat/Media complex: They keep acting like it’s still 1988 here. They keep thinking that the “media” is just the three broadcast networks, CNN, the New York Times and the Washington Post, and that as long as they have those outlets in their pockets they can control any story. The world doesn’t work that way anymore, boys and girls.

Biden was clearly rattled when confronted by a Fox News reporter on Saturday to explain his and his son’s activities related to Ukraine:

That is the bluster of a confused and panicked man. He has no idea what to do or how to answer, so he lashes out at the reporters to “ask the right questions.” He also probably lied outright when he said he and his son Hunter Biden had never discussed Hunter’s business dealings in the Ukraine, a claim that Hunter directly contradicted over the weekend.

Joe Biden is closing in on 77 years-old, and he is not in any way young for his age. He is in the midst of his third run for the presidency over a span of 32 years. His once-sizable polling leads in Iowa and New Hampshire are now gone, and Elizabeth Warren keeps slowly closing the gap with him in the national polls.

He now finds himself being caught in the middle of a corruption scandal that is not only of his and his son’s own making, but that he bragged about at public events. On camera. All his buds in the fake news media keep parroting their talking points, but fewer and fewer people are buying what they’re selling with every passing hour.

All of this is happening with next year’s Democrat convention still 10 long, long months away and Election Day more than 13 months hence.

Does anyone really think this very old, frail man has the stamina to last through all of that?

Not likely.

That is all.

P.S.: Right as I was posting this up, President Trump issued this tweet:

I’m just sayin’.

It’s Predicament Day for Democrats and Disloyal White House Staffers

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

Oh, noes, not predicaments! – Y’all, we have a bunch of really awful people finding themselves in “predicaments” today – aren’t you sad? So, so, so sad for these terrible, sleazy people? Yeah, me neither.

The first bunch of execrable jackasses who find themselves in a predicament today are the leaders of the Democrat Party, and they’re in their current predicament thanks to what Bloomberg describes as “a sliver” of The Commie’s voter base, who are in what the media likes to call “Bernie or bust mode.” These voters are so embittered by the fact that the DNC fixed the 2016 nominating process for the Pantsuit Princess that they’ve decided they’ll simply abandon the Party if their Commie hero doesn’t get his way this time.

But hey, what’s the worry here? As I noted yesterday, Bernie’s the Democrat front-runner now, well ahead of Creepy Uncle Joe and 20 points up on Irish Bob O’Rourke. And isn’t it interesting that we don’t see Bloomberg or anyone else in the news media writing pieces about “Biden or Bust” voters or “Beto or Bust” voters? Although, the way they’re all slobbering over Mayor Pete right now, we will surely see some “Buttigieg or Bust” pieces in the near future.

Oh, hey, and have you noticed this?  Take a look at the photo above and tell me what the four men pictured have in common.  That’s right: The Party of Social Justice Warriors and campus Snowflakes has four pasty-white males leading everyone else in its nominating process. Taken together, those four symbols of white male privilege and toxic quasi-masculinity are pulling 70% of the support in the race in the new Emerson Poll.

Remember when Kamala Harris and Cory Booker were the Party’s “rising stars” according to the fake news media? They’ve been completely eclipsed by Irish Bob and Mayor Pete, two of the whitest white men on planet earth. The one real Hispanic candidate in the race, former San Antonio Mayor Joaquin Castro, having not been endowed with the fake media’s “rising star” tag, sits at 3% in the Emerson poll, and just 1% in every other recent poll taken in the race. The fakest Indian in the race, Elizabeth Warren, just keeps bumbling and stumbling along at 5-8% support in the various polls.

That reality in and of itself presents quite the predicament for the Democrat Party, because there are tons and tons of SJWs out there who aren’t going to vote for a white male, whether he’s a real Commie like Bernie, or pretend commies like Irish Bob or Mayor Pete. So any way you slice this pie, the Democrats have quite the predicament, thanks to their half-century-long cynical focus on identity politics.

I’m cool with that.

And now a word from our sponsors… – I spent a very fun half-hour on NewsTalk 93.1 FM in Montgomery, AL with host Greg Budell on Tuesday. The podcast is below. My segment starts at about the 35 minute mark, when Greg and his producer Joey tee up Cher’s Democrat Party theme song, “Gypsies, Tramps and Thieves” as my intro. But listen to the whole thing – Greg’s hilarious and runs a great program.

 

Follow this link for more of this great show’s podcasts, and follow Greg on Twitter at @GregBudell.

Now, back to today’s “predicaments”… – In other Predicament news, the pending release of the Mueller Report tomorrow by Attorney General William Barr has people nervous, and we can all imagine why that would be the case.

Apparently no one is more nervous today than all the creeps and seditionists on the White House staff who have been working from the inside to undermine President Donald Trump and his Administration for the last two years. The news-fakers at Vanity Fair are reporting that some of these scumbags and sleazeballs are “experiencing “breakdown-level anxiety” over whether their names or identifying details will appear in the report.”

Oh, my. Oh, my, my, my. Don’t you all just feel so terrible for them? Yeah, neither do I.

But boy, this is a real, big-time predicament, isn’t it? You’re a White House staffer. You took the job on a pledge to be loyal to the President and the country, and you have spent your time on the job leaking trash to our garbage news media and doing whatever else you could to inhibit that same President’s ability to do his job on behalf of the American people. Now, you’re afraid that the release of the report by the Gestapo Chief, er, “Special Counsel” who’s completed his 22-month sham investigation is going to catch you up in its undertow.

Well, that’s just dandy, as my dear Dad used to say.

Bring it on, Mr. Barr. Let’s out these seditionists and provide them with a little public-exposure “justice” of their own. Couldn’t think of a more deserving den of snakes.

That is all.

AOC and Mad Maxine: The Prophets of Democrat Mendacity and Ignorance

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

Liberals: It’s not what they don’t know that’s the problem, it’s what they “know” that just isn’t so. – The multi-generational ignorance of Democrat Party leaders was on display over the weekend, and it is glorious.

First up was the elderly face of the Democrat Party, 80 year-old Maxine Waters, who was apparently off her meds and went off into a dementia-driven rant during an interview at the NAACP’s Image Awards. First, she outrageously compared the congressional Democrats’ absurd requests for the release of an unredacted Mueller report and all of its background documentation to … wait for it…oh, you have to wait for this one…APARTHEID. I swear I do not make this stuff up – who could?

She then clearly demonstrated she has no clue about the size of the Mueller report, saying “No matter what has been revealed thus far and there’s only four pages of what appears to be a report of about, maybe somewhere between 3,000, 4,000 pages.”  Oh. For accuracy’s sake, pretty much every media outlet in America has reported that Mueller’s report consists of about 300 pages, so Waters was only off by a factor of about 10, which is far closer than she normally gets to the reality of any given situation.

But the best part of Mad Maxine’s rant about the absolute, irreversible necessity for she and her despicable colleagues in congress to get their grasping claws on every shred of paper Mueller and his team generated, is her statement that, well, they really don’t need it after all:

“And so, no matter what this report is thus far, we have seen enough. We have seen right before our very eyes the obstruction of justice in so many ways.” Oh. Ok. So it’s absolutely, 100% mandatory that you see the whole report and all of its documentation, but you’ve seen enough already, and really don’t need to see any of it at all. Gotcha.

Next up in the Democrat Party Parade of Nitwits was another Usual Suspect, the spoiled child Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.  AOC, as she likes to be called, doesn’t have advancing age as a rationalization for her complete lack of acquaintance with reality – with her, it just plain damn ignorance compounded by absolute arrogance.

Given a three-hour platform by her willing accomplices at MSNBC to pitch her imbecilic “Green New Deal” to America’s growing legion of mind-numbed masses, AOC preached (and as Grabien News notes, it was without question a religious event) about all manner of Socialist nitwittery to the adoration of the carefully-constructed, invited audience. As it always is with her, as long as she was sticking to the array of talking points written for her by her “Justice Democrats” handlers, the Bronx Bartender did fine.

The problem came when she decided to ad lib from those messages, as when she rewrote history by claiming that some nebulous “they” amended the U.S. constitution to boot Franklin Roosevelt out of office:

“They had to amend the Constitution of the United States to make sure Roosevelt did not get reelected.”

Because, of course, rewriting history is always one of the first goals of Marxist thugs in taking over any country. For the record, FDR passed away while serving his fourth term in 1945. The 22nd amendment, which limits president’s to two full terms in office, was enacted by the nebulous “they” in 1947.

Then, there was this handy justification for government control of the means of production:

“We are dealing with a crisis of how our economy is made up. Our economy is increasingly financialized. Which means we’re making profits off of interest and off of leasing your phones, off of doing all these things, but we’re not producing and we’re not innovating in the way we need to as an economy.”

What a load of fresh, smelly horse manure that is.

Again, for the record, our economy is booming, performing better during 2018 than it has in well over a decade. America over the past two years has seen a massive rebirth in its manufacturing sector, which has produced hundreds of thousands of jobs and hundreds of billions of dollars in investments, and our society has over the last 20 years experienced a level of technological innovation that vastly surpasses any period in human existence and would be considered absolutely miraculous by anyone born prior to the 20th century.

What AOC and Mad Maxine show us is that abject ignorance and despicable mendacity are not things bound by age, generation or personal experience. These people live in their own made-up dream world, and unfortunately, that dream world is shared by millions of similarly ignorant Americans.

Which precisely describes the basic working model for today’s Democrat Party.

That is all.

We Must Stop Giving the Democrat Party a Pass

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

Soulless ghouls. – Last night, 44 of the 47 Senate Democrats voted against a bill designed to protect the lives of babies born into this world after failed attempts by abortionists to murder them while in the womb. The other three apparently didn’t have the courage to even show up and be counted. [Correction: Three Rs – Murkowski, Tim Scott and Kevin Cramer – voted against this bill, and 3 Ds – Doug Jones, Bob Casey and Joe Manchin – voted for it.] 44 soulless ghouls – including every one of the half-dozen or so Democrat senators running for the presidency. This is the state of your Democrat Party today. You can have it. Here is how the President responded to this sad event:

In 2002, a bill containing the same language was passed UNANIMOUSLY in the U.S. Senate.

If you’re a Democrat, are you proud of where your party is today? Understand that protecting the ability of abortion factories like Planned Parenthood to murder live born children (something they’ve allegedly been doing for many years) is the reason why Democrat politicians and pro-abortion activists have so viciously fought against bills in various states the last several years that would require the butchers who work at abortion factories to maintain operating rights at local hospitals.

These activists and politicians are so eager to keep murdering children – and that is what this is, outright murder – that they not only want to remove any responsibility on the part of the butchers to make the slightest effort to save a live-born child, they want to remove any possibility that they might be able to do so.

There have been so many horrifically low moments for the Democrat Party in recent years that it is now not humanly possible to catalog them all, but last night’s vote may represent an all-time nadir.

Time to stop giving Democrats a pass. – This brings me to a topic I’ve been stewing about for quite a while now. It’s an uncomfortable one for so many Republicans/conservatives because so many of us still have friends and family members who are Democrats, and it would require a change in a long-ingrained behavior on our part.

Simply put, we as a society simply must stop giving the Democrat Party a pass on all the rampant mendacity it creates and supports. Because conservatives have not radicalized over the last half-century like the Democrats have, we have been in the habit of pretending that our Democrat “friends” are not really responsible for all these horrible things – it’s always those other moving parts of the radical leftist movement who are doing all the damage to our society while the Democrat Party sits by innocently saying ‘tsk, tsk’ and clucking its collective tongue.

Whenever a bunch of Antifa goons cause a riot in some city in California or Oregon or anywhere else, our reaction is to point fingers at those specific radicals and the George Soros money that funds them. But George Soros and Antifa are nothing more or less than militant arms of the national Democrat Party – they are in fact inseparable and daily coordinating their efforts to destroy the foundations of our society. Like it did with the Ku Klux Klan in the wake of the Civil War, the Democrat Party literally created Antifa. George Soros would have no place to hide in our society if not for his Democrat Party enablers.

Whenever a mob of social justice warriors digitally assaults some poor slob on social media, our knee-jerk reaction is to point fingers at those “SJWs” as if they are some independent entity. But they all vote Democrat, folks – there are no Republican SJWs. It has been the radical policies pushed by the Democrat Party for the last half century that have perverted our education system and created all the SJWs and snowflakes in the first place. The Democrat Party did this, and anyone who votes for Democrats or runs for office as a Democrat is complicit and needs to be held responsible.

The same is true of the destruction of the profession of journalism and our nation’s news media over the last 50 years. That has all been done with the single focused goal of turning that profession and media establishment into nothing more than an American version of Pravda, the propaganda wing of the Democrat Party. The Democrats did this and need to be held accountable for it.

Trust me, I have been as guilty of making these distinctions without differences as anyone over the years. But over the past year I have made a conscious effort to stop that bad behavior.

Because make no mistake about it: Giving the Democrat Party a pass for all the horrific things it supports and does is very, very bad behavior. The Democrat Party is a festering and metastasizing cancer in our society, an existential threat to our nation’s future.

For every patient, the first step towards getting well is to accurately identify your problem. Only then can the proper treatment begin.

The Democrat Party is our nation’s problem. If the country is to ever begin to heal, we must stop giving it a pass for its chronic and ever-expanding mendacity.

That is all.

Beto O’Rourke Had Better Fish or Cut Bait Very Soon

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

Oprah meet Beto; Beto meet Oprah…: – With his window of opportunity to get into the Democrat Party’s 2020 presidential nominating race rapidly closing, Irish Bob O’Rourke, fresh off a 30-day hiatus so he could “find himself” for about the 27th time in his goofy life, cast about for the highest-profile, most reliable Democrat media shill he could locate for a televised interview, and landed the biggest shill of all – Oprah Winfrey.

Filled with incisive, hard-hitting questions like “are you the real deal?” and “what’s it going to take for you to say ‘yes, I’m doing it’?”, Oprah’s interview soft-balled and powder-puffed its way to getting the famous Texas loser-to-Ted-Cruz to finally admit that he’s “been thinking about running for president” (you don’t say!) and he would announce his decision “before the end of the month.”  Oh, sing hosannas to the heavens and pass the flan!

The taping of the Oprah/Beto interview took place in New York City, presumably because The Oprah couldn’t be bothered to travel to Irish Bob’s technical home town of El Paso, Texas, and will air on The Oprah’s OWN network on Feb. 16, at which time I’ll be watching Wheel of Fortune or something on the History Channel.

Here’s the thing for Irish Bob: If he’s going to get into this race, he needs to do it now or sooner.  Last month would have been better, actually. It’s hard to keep up with it all at this point, but there are already at least 10 Democrats in the race, with at least a dozen more to come, and the laggards are going to find it harder and harder to properly staff their campaigns and raise the money to pay them. O’Rourke is married to a woman who is the heiress to a fortune reportedly worth billions, but unless Irish Bob’s dad-in-law is ready to fund the primary effort, our sheep-suit-wearing, tonsil-televising hero had better get his fundraising machine cranked up before all the big money has been otherwise committed.

A month ago I’d have made Irish Bob the odds-on favorite to be the 2020 Democrat nominee because he is the absolutely perfect Democrat candidate:  Completely unqualified; no accomplishments in the private sector of our economy of any note; no real accomplishments in government, either, for that matter; willing to say literally anything to attract votes from depraved and demented Democrat base voters; and he looks good on television. Hell, he even has his fake nickname that leads at least half of all Democrat voters to still think he is Hispanic or something, allowing him to tick off that “Minority” box even though he isn’t one, just like Fauxcahontas has made a habit of doing throughout her adult life in order to get ahead.

But today, with our fake news media already competing to jump ahead in line to promote the likes of Kamala Harris – who really is a minority and a woman to boot, and as unqualified and fraudulent as any candidate could be – Irish Bob runs the risk of becoming just another pretty face in the crowd if he waits too much longer to jump into the fray.  He has to remember that when running for the Democrat nomination, the most important endorsement doesn’t come from governors or senators or the party’s other “elder statesmen”.

No, the most important endorsement in the Democrat race comes from the fake news media. He had that full endorsement in his race against Ted Cruz, with the entirety of the Texas media actively campaigning on his behalf, and national outlets like the New York Times and CNN doing everything they could as well.

But he has to remember that he was a ‘party of one’ in that race – the only Democrat running, which made him the media’s default pick. The fact that he was running against Senator Cruz, who the media despise as fiercely as any Republican not named Trump, also helped lead to all those fawning puff pieces declaring him to be the next “Kennedy”.

Irish Bob hopes to ultimately be running against the even more-detested-by-the-fake-media Donald Trump, but first he will be running against probably two dozen fellow demented and depraved Democrats. That means he will not only have to compete with the likes of Harris, the Commie, the Fake Indian and Crazy Joe Biden for fawning attention from the national media, he even has to compete with former San Antonio Mayor Julian Castro for the front page puff pieces in the Austin American Statesman and Texas Tribune.

His problem today is that he’s cut this interview with The Oprah, so he can’t announce until it has aired, because if you cross The Oprah, you are well and truly a dead man walking in Democrat politics. So that’s at least another 10 lost days, days that he could have and should have been using to build a campaign.

So here’s the deal: If you haven’t seen Irish Bob make a formal announcement of his candidacy by noon on February 17, then you should probably quit obsessing about him, because he’s just too indecisive to succeed in a race against the bunch of ethics-devoid cutthroats he’d be up against in the Democrat primaries.

February 17 is your day, Irish Bob.  Fish, or cut the damn bait.

That is all.
