The Democrats’ “Biggest Stars” Just Keep Growing Dimmer

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Whoa, whoa, whoa! Ted, you’re not supposed to say that out loud. –  California Rep. Ted Lieu is one of the most execrable members of congress. In addition to the mere fact of being a Democrat, Lieu joins Maxine Waters in combining the worst combination of character traits any human being can possess: Overwhelming arrogance mixed with massive stupidity.

On Wednesday, these traits led Lieu to let one of the many Democrat unspoken cats out of the bag on national television, telling CNN’s vapid host Brianna Keiller the following:

 “I would love if I could have more than five minutes to question witnesses. Unfortunately, I don’t get that opportunity. However, I would love to be able to regulate the content of speech. The First Amendment prevents me from doing so, and that’s simply a function of the First Amendment”.

Yes, friends, in case you weren’t already aware of it, your Democrat friends want to regulate what you can and cannot say, and in fact are already well along the way to doing that in social media and our nation’s college campuses. They aren’t supposed to talk about it publicly, but every once in a while one of their dumber colleagues, like Lieu, slips up.  There you go.

Speaking of Democrats… – If you still doubt that the participants in the “migrant caravan” assembled down in Tijuana would become Democrats if they ever manage to enter the United States, Tuesday should have locked the case up for you.

That was the day that several hundred of them staged two separate “marches” to the U.S. Consulate in that Mexican city, and upon arrival demanded that they either be allowed into the United States, or that they be paid $50,000 each – by American taxpayers – to return to their home country.  I swear I do not make this stuff up.

So, not only do they want to come into America where most of them plan to become wards of the state, they now want to be paid reparations for their stupid decision to leave their home countries. Literally, the perfect Democrat voter mindset.

And now you know why Democrat Party leaders are so desperate to preserve our failed immigration laws.

A real Texas Hispanic challenges Beto Mania. – Figuring I suppose that hey, if a good-looking young white Texas guy pretending to be an Hispanic can run for president with no visible qualifications for the job, why can’t a real Hispanic Texan do the same, San Antonio’s Julian Castro announced on Wednesday he is forming an exploration committee in preparation to run for the presidency in 2020.

He’s a virtual clone of Irish Bob O’Rourke: Young, good-looking, good speaker, looks good on television, great at reciting approved talking points to the media, all the qualifications anyone apparently needs anymore to run for the Democrat nomination. Unlike Irish Bob, though, Castro actually is Hispanic. He also has some apparent actual qualifications for the job, being a former successful mayor of a major city (San Antonio) and having served as HUD Secretary for a few years during the Obama Administration.

Also unlike Irish Bob, though, Castro has not demonstrated the ability to excite the Democrat masses or raise tens of millions of dollars from wealthy leftists in Hollywood and New York. That is, of course, part of what his “exploratory committee” will be exploring in the coming weeks, because Castro, unlike Irish Bob, is not married to a billionaire, and won’t be able to largely self-fund his primary race if need be.

Ocasio Cortez Update!:

Yes, friends, Matthew Yglesias, writing at leftist activist site Vox.com, wants you to agree to change the constitution so that the femme fatal from Queens – who he calls “the biggest star in the Democratic Party” – could run for the presidency in 2020, when she will be all of 30 years of age.

Oh, but it gets better.

Yglesias doesn’t want to just lower the age for running for the presidency, he wants to eliminate all restrictions on the right to run. In Matty’s brave new world, any “registered voter” – which would include all those illegal immigrants who are now legally allowed to register to vote in California – would be able to run for the highest office in the land.

Think about the possibilities here: If Emanuel Macron, with his 18% approval rating, wants to transfer his society-destroying magic from France to the New World, he could just fly to San Francisco, register to vote, and instantly become a leading contender for the Democrat Party nomination, given that Democrats have been trying their best to destroy U.S. society since they elected Woodrow Wilson. Teresa May, fresh off of barely surviving her vote of no confidence after royally screwing up the whole Brexit thing, could do the same thing. Hassan Rouhani, the Iranian President to whom Obama and his fellow Democrats were happy to give $150 billion a few years ago, same deal.

Matty Yglesias, who is in fact a leading voice of American progressivism, says, hell, why not?

Your Democrat Party in action.

Breathtaking.

That is all.

And Just Like That, Beto Leaps Into The Lead

The Evening Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Beto Mania Update:  As if on cue with this morning’s Campaign Update, a new poll commissioned by Moveon.org has Irish Bob O’Rourke surging into the lead in the 2020 Democrat nominating contest even before he formally announces his inevitable candidacy:

Excerpt from the NBC.com article on the poll…

An early straw poll of members of the progressive group MoveOn.org shows a wide-open competition for liberal voters in the 2020 Democratic presidential contest, with Rep. Beto O’Rourke narrowly beating out former Vice President Joe Biden…

The most popular potential candidate was O’Rourke, D-Texas, who was selected by 15.6 percent of respondents, followed by Biden at 14.9 percent, and then Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., with 13.1 percent.

Now, a couple of things to note about this poll: First, it was conducted among the members of Moveon.org, who most observers would assume are on the left flank of the Democrat voter base, and five years ago that assumption would have been true.  But is it true now? Probably not – the Party has been pulled so far to the left over the last two years and Moveon.org’s members might well be to the right of the center of that particular leftwing universe these days.

Second, the poll did not include the Coughing Crook among its potential candidates, and anyone who thinks she has given up on her the presidential ambitions that have consumed her entire adult live is living in a dream world.

Third, the poll did include such Democrat luminaries as Kamala Harris, Cory Booker, Fauxcahontas and Micheal Bloomberg (who used to pretend to be a Republican), and represents very, very bad news for those characters. Harris and Booker were supposed to be the “young guns” in the 2020 Democrat field, and, after damaging themselves terribly during the Kavanaugh hearings, are in grave danger of seeing their rising moons eclipsed by the Beto Mania that is fast sweeping the country.

Irish Bob is going to be the Democrat nominee in 2020, as amazing as that might still seem to some of you. Yes, he’s a loser.  Yes, he has no real qualifications for the job. Yes, there are going to be 20 other candidates in the field.

But he’s going to be the nominee. Might as well just start printing up the bumper stickers now.

That is all.

Are You Ready for Beto 2020? You’d Better Be.

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Hey, remember all that media-fed drama about whether San Fran Nan would be our next Speaker of the House? –  Yeah, that was all just a lot of stuff and nonsense, as the late, great James Kilpatrick liked to say.

On Wednesday, the Democrat sheep in the House of Representatives, after having been cajoled and arm-twisted and outright threatened by Nancy Pelosi for the last few weeks, overwhelmingly voted to return the despicable California representative to the Speaker’s chair, from whence she shall come to judge the quick and the dead in the House for the next two years. The vote of the Democrat caucus members was 203 for Pelosi and just 32 against, demonstrating yet again how painfully hard it is to find a spine anywhere among that pathetic collection of grifters, thugs and brown-nosers.

Pelosi will still need to find 15 additional votes when the full House votes to formally elect its new speaker in January, but anyone who doubts she will find them among her own caucus or self-aggrandizing Republicans is living in a dream world.  Elections have consequences, and having stuttering, stammering, doddering Nan as Speaker is the main consequence of the election just past.

One can only hope. – President Donald Trump caused a major media meltdown early yesterday when re-tweeted this message to his followers:

Now that Jeff Sessions is no longer attorney general, there does seem to be hope that such a happy outcome could be looming around the corner. Make no mistake about it: The fear of something like this taking place is why Democrats have been so focused on tarring and feathering acting Attorney General Matt Whitaker since Trump appointed him to that position. The arguments that Whitaker’s appointment was somehow unconstitutional are completely without merit, nothing more than an effort by Democrats and their media agents to assassinate Whitaker’s character.

Whether anything like it ever comes about is anyone’s guess, but there is no doubt it is on the President’s mind, given that he issued the following tweets this morning:

…and…

$40 million to investigate the “Russia collusion” Democrat fantasy play. Your fake news media loves to claim that Mueller has obtained dozens of indictments and several guilty pleas and convictions of various fringe players, but how many of those are in any way related to his supposed mission? What he has obtained is what every previous special counsel ended up getting: a series of process crimes and prosecutions for activities that are wholly unrelated to what he was supposed to be looking into.

Yes, treason trials would be nice, but Whitaker has been in his new job for more than three weeks now, and so far there is no indication that any such effort is underway at our utterly corrupted Department of Justice. The President will no doubt be naming a permanent replacement for Sessions soon – if Whitaker wishes to be remembered as anything more than a placeholder, it’s time to get cracking.

Ocasio Cortez Watch:

Are you ready for President Beto? – I’m going to lay down this marker right here today: Irish Bob O’Rourke will be the Democrat presidential nominee in 2020, and we had all better take him very, very seriously.

Many readers will scoff at reading this. After all, what is Irish Bob other than a recent loser in a Texas senate race, right? Yeah, well, that’s right, as far as it goes.

But here’s what else Irish Bob is: He’s the perfect, ideal Democrat nominee.

Think about it – the man is an instant replay of Barack Hussein Obama.  He’s young, he’s good-looking, he is articulate, he is extremely skilled at parroting approved Democrat/media talking points, he is completely without any substance whatsoever, and he is a blank slate on which sheepish Democrat voters can project any set of policy positions and pipe dreams that enter into their tiny minds.

Obama, 2.0.

But here’s the main thing that makes Irish Bob the odds-on favorite to come away with the 2020 Democrat nomination: He’s a billionaire. Not only that, he’s a billionaire who can raise money from the mindless cretins in Hollywood and New York like no one else. This is a guy who collected and spent the unheard-of sum of $80 million on a senate race. Yes, he still lost, but he was able to turn what would have been a 10-15 point loss by any other Democrat into a somewhat nail-biting 3-point loss on Election Night. You can say that was just a ‘moral victory,’ but it also was the closest statewide race any Texas Democrat has run in a quarter of a century.

We are going to have 20-30 candidates lined up seeking the Democrat nomination by mid-year next year. They’re all going to have their own personal appeal, their own strategies, their own personal resumes and policy positions, but at the end of the day the winner in that long slog of a race is going to be the person who can raise and deploy the money necessary to mount a campaign in all 50 states.

Kamala Harris is young, good-looking and articulate. So is Cory Booker. So is Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti. So is Kirsten Gillibrand. Joe Biden and the Commie have already proved they can inspire the Democrat masses. Hillary Clinton is probably going to run again. New York Governor Andrew Cuomo is also going to run. Fauxcahontas is sending up the “I’m running, too” smoke signals. On and on and on the list of likely 2020 Democrat candidates goes. Thinking people can laugh about them, but thinking people must also recognize they all have their own certain appeal to the party’s voter base.

But only one potential candidate is a billioniare, capable of pouring as much of money as he needs into the nominating process. That one person is Irish Bob O’Rourke.

We can laugh about him now – I laugh about him every day – but we’d also best take him very, very seriously.  Because he’s most likely going to be your Democrat nominee in 2020.

That is all.

The Week in Review: The Voting Will Continue Until The Democrats Have Their Wave

The Campaign Update Week in Review

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

There was an election on Tuesday, and about 95% of the country called it all good then.  All the votes that had been legally cast in this broad mass of the nation were legally counted by midnight, winners were declared and claimed their victories, losers conceded their losses, and all was right with the beacon of hope for the free world.

But then, there’s Arizona.  And Georgia.  And California.  And most egregious of all, there are Broward and Palm Beach Counties in Florida.

Unlike the rest of the country, the Democrat-controlled parts of these states don’t seem ever able to get their votes counted in an orderly and timely manner. Boxes filled with ballots of suspicious origin just keep on appearing seemingly out of the ether with no valid explanation for days, often weeks after the Tuesday on which the election supposedly and officially ended. Corrupt election officials in these areas just keep on counting votes in violation of the law and apparently toothless court orders as corrupt Democrat candidates and their press agents in the news media cheer them on.

Yes, the the same fake news media that has spent the last two full years now promoting the Democrat fantasy that the Russians stole the 2016 presidential election actively applauds the blatant efforts by Democrats to steal statewide elections in these pockets of the country. If you expected intellectual integrity from our nation’s dying journalism profession, you came to the wrong place.

All this post-election vote-finding and vote-counting has now grown the Democrats’ expected net gain in the U.S. House of Representatives from an estimated 30 seats to 40. In Arizona, the outcome of the race to replace Jeff Flake in the U.S. Senate has apparently been flipped, as have three congressional seats in California. In Georgia, boxes full of suspicious ballots just keep “appearing” out of thin air, and without exception they all heavily favor Democrat gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams. Go figure.

Meanwhile, in Florida, the outcome of the race for state Ag Commissioner was flipped from R to D when elections supervisors in Broward and Palm Beach suddenly “found” upwards of 100,000 mail-in ballots that they had not reported as a part of their tally on Election Day, as they are required by law to do. Thanks to the intervention of the courts, it appears the vote-stealing efforts there will ultimately fail to flip the outcomes of the U.S. Senate and governor’s races, but they were able to narrow the GOP candidates’ winning margins to final tallies  that are close enough to trigger automatic machine recounts.

When Americans went to bed late on Tuesday night, it seemed certain that the Republican majority in the Senate would be expanded to 55 seats. As they wake up on Sunday morning, it seems all but certain that the majority will actually end up being a much more tenuous 53 seats, thanks to the post-Election Day reversals in Arizona and in Montana.  This majority is now small enough to once again allow Republican squishes like Murkowski, Collins and a handful of others to effectively control the judicial confirmation process in the Senate.

There was a “blue wave” after all in these mid-term elections, but not on Election Day. It was instead a “wave” of post-election vote-counting that sealed the deal for the Democrats as our worthless news media sat by and cheered the fraud.  If this surprises you, you haven’t been paying close enough attention.

Let’s go to the rest of the Week in Review…

It was the week that an 85 year-old Supreme Court Justice fell and broke 3 ribs, prompting d-list actress Alyssa Milano to offer to donate both of her…wait for it….KIDNEYS to save Ruth Bader Ginsberg’s life. I swear I don’t make this stuff up.

It was the week that the fake news media, in coordination with the Democrat Party, dropped almost all of its previously-breathless, wall-to-wall coverage of the fake “migrant caravan” after Election Day, and took to social media to try to blame their failure to report the story on – you guessed it – President Donald Trump.  Because, of course they did.

It was the week that the fake mail bomber had his day in court and our fake news media studiously ignored the story. Shockingly, all the fake reporters did not take to social media to blame this particular failure to report on President Trump. Seems like a narrative glitch to me.

It was the week that every single candidate on whose behalf Barack Hussein Obama campaigned during the final week got beat.  Well, they all lost on Election Day, anyway – we’ll have to see how things ultimately turn out in Georgia and Florida to have a final verdict, as all the Obama-inspired community organizers do their best to keep finding and counting “votes”.

It was the week that preening CNN peacock Jim Acosta made an ass of himself in the President’s post-election press conference, assaulting a young, female White House intern in the process, and no one in the whole #MeToo movement came to the intern’s defense. Many of them in fact defended Acosta, who had his White House press badge revoked for his troubles, and has still not had it restored as of this writing.

It was the week that sad, declining comic Chelsea Handler decided that posting a semi-nude video of herself on social media would be a great way to encourage millions of Americans to go out and vote.  It wasn’t.

It was the week that Sleepy Jeff Sessions lost his job, about 12 hours after Election Day had ended. Now he can go back to Alabama and regain the U.S. Senate seat he surrendered in 2017 to take the Attorney General job, and President Trump can put someone in the AG’s job who really wants to do it.  A good and proper outcome all around.

It was the week that loser Beto O’Rourke finally stopped texting seemingly everyone in America for money, at least until January, when he will undoubtedly kick off his 2020 presidential campaign. If you think I’m kidding, well, get back to me in January and tell me how your texts are going.

It was the week that this happened:

It was also the week that this happened:

And finally, it was the week that this happened, and no one in our fake national news media uttered a peep of protest:

*sigh*

Just another week with about 800 different news cycles in America.

That is all.

The Campaign Update Election Results Live Blog [Update 9]

The Campaign Update Election Results Live Blog

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

 

Ok, folks, here we go.

Unlike I did this afternoon, I am going to run the Updates down the page, to keep them from getting mixed up with all the adds.  I will note each update with a number in the title, i.e., I will add “Update 1” to the title with the first update, “Update 2” with the 2nd, etc., so you’ll be able to easily know when something new is there.  I’ll also send out a tweet for those who follow on Twitter.

PLEASE COMMENT – I will be following your comments and responding to as many as I can.

What to look for early:

Kentucky HD 6 and Georgia HD 6 – if the Rs are leading in both these GOP-held districts when the polls close at 7:00 ET, it’s cause for celebration.  If the Ds are ahead, not so much.  Unless you’re a Democrat, of course.

Trump won both of these districts easily in 2016, but the Democrats have spent tons of money trying to turn them both.

Also, keep an eye on Republican incumbent Dave Brat in Virginia’s 7th district.  That’s another the Ds are hoping to turn tonight.

If the Ds are winning in all of these districts, then their probability of taking the House becomes near-certain.  If they are losing them all, then we’re going to have a late night, perhaps early morning before we know where things are going.

Indiana Senate – We will also be seeing first numbers in this race at 7:00 ET, 6:00 CT.  It’s a big one, though not needed for the GOP to retain control in the Senate.  CNN’s already reporting what is most likely the absentee ballots, and Republican Braun is up big over Democrat incumbent Donnelly, but the Rs always lead in the absentee votes in Indiana.

We’ll see.

Back shortly.

UPDATE 9:  DeSantis and Scott are now likely to both win in Florida.  What an amazing turnaround.

Braun has won Indiana.

Blackburn has won Tennessee.

Manchin has won WVA.

Kramer will win North Dakota.

John James is competing strongly in Michigan.

Cruz is 100k votes down but there are still over 100 rural counties who have not reported any votes at all to this point.  Karl Rove says Cruz will win in the end because of that.  I think Rove is right.

Right now, the Ds lead in 31 Red districts, the Rs lead in 5 Blue districts, and Fox News is now projecting the Democrats will gain a majority at the end of the evening.

We’ll see.  I’m not convinced yet.

UPDATE 8:  Barr has won KY 6.  Brat is barely behind know in VY 7.  If Brat can come back, that would be huge.  Still a big fat ZERO votes counted in GA 6.

Both Republicans are still holding on in Florida’s statewide races with 96% of the vote counted, and it appears that the votes still outstanding are pretty evenly split between R and D areas of the state.  Holy cow.

Cruz still a little behind in Texas, but most rural areas are still yet to report.

In Tennessee, the senate race is not close at this point, but will tighten as the night goes along.  But I think Blackburn wins that one.  [Fox just called it for Marsha!]

DeWine now in the lead in the Ohio governor’s race!

Braun still killing it in Indiana!

Kramer’s going to kill Heitcamp!

John James actually leading in the early Michigan returns.

This night is shaping up nicely, folks.  Keep the faith.

 

UPDATE 7:  I continue to be struck how much tonight is like 2016, especially in Florida statewide races.  Here we sit again with 93% of the votes counted, and the races are too close to call.  In 2016, everyone assumed all the outstanding votes were in the Miami/Broward area and Trump would lose.  But it turned out that there were still a bunch of votes sitting uncounted in GOP areas, and in a bunch of GOP-leaning precincts in South Florida.  Trump wins.

Cruz finally takes the lead in Texas, as the early vote returns start to finally come in from rural areas.  He will continue to build that lead as the night goes on.

Right now, I have to say that things are stacking up pretty nicely for the Rs.  Keep your fingers crossed.

 

UPDATE 6:  Ok, things are starting to shape up now:

– Cruz is going to win by 8-10 points, based on what we are seeing early.  Cool.

– Both DeSantis and Scott have now moved into leads in their races.  But most of the outstanding votes are in Miami/Broward area.  You have to think the Ds will win, but we thought the same in the 2016 presidential race, too.

– Barr is building his lead in KY 6.

– Bratt is holding on in VA 7.  Most remaining votes are in R areas.

– Braun still killing it in Indiana.

– Still not a damn vote in in GA 6.  Unreal.

– Despicable Donna Shalala has won FL 27, a Democrat pickup.  Ugh.

 

UPDATE 5:  Barr now dead even in KY 6, Brat has fallen behind, though just by a couple thousand votes.  Still nothing on GA 6.  What the hell?

Oops, Barr took the lead with 77% of the vote counted just as I hit “enter” on this update.

DeSantis now within 1.2%, Scott within 1.4% in Florida, as the Panhandle votes finally start coming in.  Still lots of votes outstanding in Miami/Dade, though, too, though.  No way to call those races yet.

Again, it’s 2016 all over again down there.

Braun retaining a strong lead on Donnelly, but he needs it for when Indiana’s larger cities start reporting votes later tonight.

Irish Bob O’Rourke is up early over Ted Cruz, but it’s just Dallas turning in its early vote totals.  No worries, yet.

 

UPDATE 4:  Brat now moving out to a significant lead in VA7.  Barr has pulled within .3% in KY 6, still tons of votes to be counted.

The FL Gov and Sen races are tightening with every update.  Nelson had led by as much as 6% but now up by 2.  Gillum up by just 1.6.

Nothing in from GA 6 yet, unfortunately.

This feels an awful lot like 2016, doesn’t it?  Yes, it does.

 

UPDATE 3:  Brat now actually looking ok in early returns, which are most likely from urban areas.  He’ll be stronger in the suburbs and rural areas.

Braun running much stronger against Donnelly right now in rural areas than expected.  Well ahead of pace so far.

Can’t help noticing that CNN goes to their black anchor person every time there’s an update to be given on the Florida and Georgia governor’s races, both of which feature black candidates for the Ds.  So damn ridiculous.

The encouraging thing about Florida right now is that, even though the Rs trail in the Gov and Sen races, votes are already coming in from Miami/Dade County, which is unusual.

In KY 6, D McGrath is now well ahead of R Barr.  Ugh.  Still early, though, and don’t know where the votes are from yet.

 

UPDATE 2:  Ok, it’s time to say it:  CNN just kicks Fox’s ass on these election night events.  Fox just has a bunch of people sitting around pontificating while CNN is giving us every detail in every county in every state.  I normally never tune in to CNN, but on election nights, man, there’s really no choice here.

 

UPDATE 1:  Bill Nelson is underperforming his 2012 re-election in Florida so far, by about 5%.  That was a very close race, so that again bodes well for the GOP in the Sunshine State.  Most vote in so far are from heavily-Democrat Pinellas County.

 

That is all.

The Week in Review: No “Blue Wave” Coming

The Campaign Update Week in Review

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

There is no “Blue Wave” coming, anywhere in America.  No Dodger Blue, no Dallas Cowboys Blue, no Democrat Blue, no blue wave of any kind.  Trust me, folks, it ain’t happening, and it never was.

My goodness.  As I sit here typing this Week in Review this morning, Fox News is interviewing one of the guys in the fake “migrant caravan” down in Mexico.  This guy is an admitted convicted felon, for the crime of attempted murder, and he’s already been deported once.  He’s embedded with this obviously-staged political stunt group, and is telling Fox he expects to apply for a “pardon” when he gets back to America.

*sigh*

What do you even say about that?  If you’re a Democrat, I suppose you say hey, that guy right there is a potential future voter so we need to get his butt back into the good ol’ U.S.A.!  Because that is the essence of Democrat political thought in 2018.

Donald Trump is a man who has Jewish grandchildren.  His son-in-law, Jared Kushner, is a Jewish man and his daughter Ivanka converted to the Jewish faith when the two were married.  Yet today, on all the Sunday morning talk shows, you are going to hear every Democrat talking head blame President Trump for the atrocity that was committed by a deranged, Trump-hating anti-Semite at a synagogue in Pittsburgh, where a Jewish family was celebrating a bris for their child.

Eleven people died there, and four law enforcement officers were injured before the this latest lunatic was finally subdued and taken into custody. It is an unimaginable tragedy, one to which any normal person’s natural reaction is to mourn the loss of precious lives and praise the work of the first responders in Pittsburgh’s law enforcement community.

But not to Democrats.  Democrats’ knee-jerk reaction is to point fingers of blame at political enemies and anyone else they hate – which is an awful lot of people – and rail about the need to take away everyone’s guns.  Because they’re Democrats.  That’s what they do.

With this latest nutjob, the Democrats and their fake media toadies have a real problem.  They’ve spent the last three-plus years pushing their “Trump is Hitler” narrative, yet this guy is a self-described Nazi who hates Trump because “he is controlled by the Jews.”  Ooops.  That just won’t sell well on “Meet the Press” with Chuck Todd or “Sunday Morning” with George Clintonopoulous, so they’re all busily getting their joint talking points in order as I write this piece this morning.

The new narrative will be rolled out later today, and we will all marvel at its lack of any factual merit whatsoever.  So, it’ll be just like all the other narratives the Democrats/fake media have rolled out this week.

Let’s go to the Week in Review:

It was the week that the “President Trump is responsible for the Saudis butchering this Khashoggi guy” narrative crashed and burned because most Americans understand that the Saudi government does worse than that to its citizens on pretty much a daily basis and no one at CNN or the New York Times cares.

It was the week that the obviously-staged “feel sorry for the fake migrant caravan, you heartless Americans” narrative failed because, to most Americans, a growing group of 7,000 people, the vast majority of whom appear to be military-aged males, looks suspiciously like an invasion.

It was the week that the “caravan migrants”, who our fake news media keeps telling us are just a bunch of poor, down-trodden “asylum seekers” turned down an offer of absolute asylum, including healthcare, housing, jobs and food, when it was offered to them by the government of Mexico. Of course they did, because they’re not being paid to stop in Mexico – they’re being paid to get to the American border.

It was the week that a nut in Florida was arrested for “mailing” “bombs” to a bunch of high-profile Democrats, and the fake news media jumped for joy when they found out the guy was apparently, at least, a fan of President Trump.  The only problem with this narrative is that some of the “bombs” weren’t mailed at all, given that the packaging they were supposedly sent in contained no postmarks, and that they weren’t “bombs” at all.  Other than that, great story, guys.  Trust me, there is something more here that has yet to be revealed.

It was the week that the news media swore to us that a mail-bombing nutjob who is half-Filipino and half-Seminole Indian is “white.”  Because that would best fit the media’s narrative, so he must be.

It was the week that soul-crushing dread began to creep into the hearts of leading Democrats (that’s assuming that ghouls like Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer actually have hearts and souls) as early voting numbers from key states like Florida, Arizona, Nevada, Indiana, Tennessee and Texas began coming in unexpectedly (to the Democrats, anyway) favoring the GOP.  So much for the polls.

It was the week that Dodgers Manager Dave Roberts made no less than five indefensible pitching moves in a span of just 2 innings of a single World Series game, marking the 2nd straight year that Roberts had changed the entire direction of a World Series against his own team with horrible pitching decisions.  Roberts was so indescribably awful on Saturday night that he became the first manager in Major League Baseball history to be panned by a President of the United States on social media:

It’s almost enough to make you want to become a Giants fan.  But not quite.  Nothing is ever bad enough for that.

It was the week that America’s Biggest Mistake, Barack Hussein Obama, said the following:  “It shouldn’t be Democratic or Republican to say you don’t try to punish political opponents. Or threaten the freedom of the press just because you don’t like what they say.”  This is the very same Barack Hussein Obama who famously had his FBI bug the computers and illegally search the homes of journalists who were critical of him, and sicced his IRS on opposition political groups.  The very same guy.

It was the week that we found out that NBC had evidence in-hand that would have cleared Brett Kavanaugh from the outrageous “gang-rape” charges while his confirmation process was still ongoing, but decided not to report on said evidence.

It was the week that Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley issued not one, but two criminal referral letters to the Justice Department targeting the Creepy Porn Lawyer and his scurrilous nutjob client, Julie Swetnick.

It was the week that Chris Wallace took that preening peacock Shepard Smith to the woodshed, and it was glorious:

It was the week that overrated and overpaid Megyn Kelly finally got canned by the woman-abusing thugs who run NBC. No one should spend a moment of time feeling sorry for anyone on either side of this particular dust up.

Finally, it was the week that a leader in the Texas Democratic Party was arrested for running a voter fraud ring, and nobody in Texas or anywhere else was surprised in any way, shape or form.  Because that’s what Democrats do.

It was quite a week, a week in which the Democrat/media desperation became so palpable you could cut it with a knife.  There is no “blue wave” coming, and there never was.

That is all.

I Am Shocked – Shocked! – To Learn of Democrat Voter Fraud Happening in Texas!

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Texas Democrats everywhere are wondering why this is a problem as they write down names off of tombstones to get them registered, too.  – The Texas Democrat Party has allegedly been sending out voter registration cards to illegal immigrants with the citizenship box already checked “yes”, according to multiple complaints filed with the Texas Secretary of State’s office.

Even better, according to the report in the Washington Times, “The applications were pre-addressed to elections officials, which is likely what left many voters to believe they were receiving an official communication from the state.  But the return address was from the State Democratic Executive Committee, and listed an address in Austin that matches the state Democratic Party’s headquarters.”

Anyone who thinks this is anything unusual in Texas has never lived in Texas.  Were it not for this kind of Democrat-organized voter fraud effort, Lyndon Johnson would have never been anything more than a teacher at some backwater school in the Texas Hill Country.

And hey, it’s not limited to illegal aliens in the state – it’s a Democrat tradition to go after all the dead voters, too, because, after all, there are no dead Republicans in Texas.  “Sam Taylor, spokesman for Texas’s secretary of state, said they heard from people whose relatives were receiving mail despite having passed away 10 years ago or longer. One woman said her child, who’d been dead 19 years, got a mailing asking to register.”

Texas Governor Greg Abbott said he would order an investigation, and “If true there will be serious consequences,” but Texans have heard such promises from Texas governors going all the way back to the 1948 senate race between LBJ and Coke Stevenson and the infamous “Box 13” incident, and seldom seen any real results.  This is just what Democrats do down here – they believe they’re entitled.

Speaking of entitled Democrats… – Irish Bob O’Rourke was given an hour of free air time by CNN last night, because with CNN’s ratings, all the air time might as well be free these days. More people were watching re-runs of SpongeBob SquarePants than tuned into see the fawning CNN fake journalists pepper Irish Bob with Nerf ball questions like “Why are you so darn handsome?”, and “We know you aren’t really Hispanic, but you would be if you could, right?”  Ok, I just made those up, but the actual questions weren’t any harder.

Next Monday, President Trump will be in Houston doing a rally for Ted Cruz.  That’ll be shown on Fox News, where a 300% larger audience tunes in each night.

You do have to give Irish Bob credit, though: He has the most tireless fundraising machine ever seen in Texas politics.  My poor little wifey received no fewer than six fundraising calls from his campaign yesterday alone, every one of them from a different number.  They quit calling me a month ago after I told one of them to “kiss my a**”.

This guy has raised more than $60 million in a Texas senate race, where winning candidates of the past have spent less than $20 million, and he still wants more.  No wonder all those other losing Democrat senate candidates are angry at him for refusing to share the wealth a little bit.  After all, the Democrats are openly admitting they are the Socialist party now after decades of pretending not to be, so a little redistribution of the wealth and control of the means of production seems to be in order here. But Irish Bob is having none of it – the money is his, all his.

He’s entitled.

But…but…but…we have been assured by our fake news media that this is not happening! – The Associated Press, believe it or not, is actually reporting on the fact that a South African city is openly seizing land from private landowners with zero compensation in what is being called a “national test case” for adopting land seizures as a formal national policy.

The city council of Ekurhuleni – which, with 4 million people is the size of Houston – voted to move ahead with the stealing of hundreds of acres of land without compensating the landowners in what the AP refers to as a “legal tool that the ruling African National Congress says is necessary to correct the historic injustices of apartheid and distribute land more equitably.”

In other words, the landowners are white, and those seizing the land are black, which is why our fake news media has refused to cover the story.  This has in fact been going on for years in more rural areas of the country, with many landowners being murdered in the process, but suddenly the AP wakes up and decides, I guess, that because it is happening in one of South Africa’s larger cities, it is worth covering.

Journalism is truly a dead profession in this country.

That is all.

The Democrat Party is a Mob, Nothing More

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

This is just how the fake news media op…ok, well, as I was saying…yes, of course but…oh, nevermind. – In a 26 minute interview on 60 Minutes last night, fake journalist Leslie Stahl interrupted the President of the United States of America, Donald Trump, 64 times.  In an interview with Barack Obama on 60 Minutes several years ago, he was interrupted 4 times.

But there is no bias at CBS News.  Just ask them, they’ll tell you.  And when you start to object, they’ll interrupt you.

Another Democrat-run city, another abject failure by law enforcement. – When the history books are written about why the United States descended into chaos, honest historians will write their opening chapters about the failure of law enforcement officials to do their jobs in Democrat-run cities around the country.  Chapter 1 would have to be about Berkeley, California, but chapter 2 would have to be centered on Portland, Oregon.

There on Saturday, a peaceful demonstration by the right-wing group called “Patriots Prayer” was set upon by a bunch of black-clad Antifa rioters, and a huge melee ensued on the downtown streets of the city.  Police stood by and watched for a few minutes as the Antifa thugs armed with bear spray and batons went after it with the Patriots Prayer people before finally jumping in to break up the city’s latest riot.

Get this: NO ARRESTS WERE MADE.  None.  Not one.  No left-wingers, no right-wingers, nobody went to jail.

This event comes just days after Antifa thugs were filmed being left unmolested by the city police as they harassed and assaulted pedestrians and car drivers in one downtown neighborhood of the city.  After that disgusting incident, Democrat Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler, who ironically doubles as the city’s “Police Commissioner,” said that “motorists should feel completely safe coming into downtown Portland.”  No word if he also thinks people should feel perfectly safe in pits of rattlesnakes, but it seems likely.

On Saturday, the Patriots Prayer group had a lawful permit to conducted its demonstration.  As has become typical of such confrontations in Democrat-run cities around the country, the Antifa group did not.  But again, the police just stood by and watched as the Antifa thugs assembled and started their assault, and then made no arrests.  None.

The Democrat party is a mob.  Nothing more.

Because the demonization of white men was becoming so last year… – Never let it be said that The Campaign Update fails to keep you abreast of the latest political correctness news.  Staying “woke” is not easy these days, since the whims of social justice warriors, campus snowflakes and the university professors who brainwash them all on a daily basis can shift on a dime, but we do our best.

Here’s the latest from the “woke” front:

Out:  White men are the problem with, like, you know, everything and stuff.

In:  White women are so all, like, the problem with all the, you know, stuff or something that, like, white men aren’t causing, you know?  Seriously?

Yes, all you white guys out there, you’re getting a bit of a break while all the SJWs and snowflakes and sharia law-supporting “Women’s Marchers” go after your WAGs (that is “wives and girlfriends” in wokespeak).  Kyle Smith, writing at the National Review, does a really good job of giving us some of the highlights of the new movement to demonize white women today:

Today, white women are being lumped together into a giant bloc subject to absurdly broad stereotyping and vitriolic condemnation. They’re being told to step back and know their place by writers in the New York Times (“white women benefit from patriarchy by trading on their whiteness to monopolize resources for mutual gain”), The New Yorker (“despite the enduring legacy of testimony by black women, white women have often played the protagonists in the history of sexual violence, and black women have been relegated to the supporting cast”) and NBC News (“white women who voted for Trump . . . clearly have no issue with the president’s openly misogynistic behavior, his demeaning of female reporters and his mocking of [Christine Blasey] Ford”).

A writer for The Root castigated Taylor Swift because “like some white women, she uses her privilege to not be involved until she’s directly affected.” Talia Lavin, the New Yorker fact-checker who resigned in June after erroneously suggesting that an ICE agent (who turned out to be a combat-wounded Marine Corps veteran) had a Nazi tattoo, continues to contribute to The New Yorker and tells her 51,000 Twitter followers, “patriarchy won’t protect you no matter how hard white women fight for it.” “White women use strategic tears to silence women of colour,” ran a headline in the Guardian. On the basis of five phone calls, plus the story of what happened to Emmett Till in 1955, Rolling Stone published an essay entitled, “Why White Women Keep Calling the Police on Black People,” blaming them for “a new 21st century version of Jim Crow.” 

It goes on and on, and is well worth your time to click over and read in full, which is a rare thing at the National Review these days.

So all you white guys out there who have been getting blamed for literally everything from global warming to the heartbreak of psoriasis to the Cowboys being such a lousy football team for the past 20 years (hey, Jerry Jones is a white guy, after all), sit back, have a beer and let your lawn grow as your wives, girlfriends and daughters have their reputations slandered by our fake news media for awhile.  But don’t get too complacent – all the SJWs and snowflakes will be coming back sooner or later to blame you for all their problems, because, well, they have to blame someone other than themselves, because the alternative would be taking responsibility for their own actions.

You know that isn’t in the cards.

[Update] The President tweeted this shortly after Today’s Campaign Update went live:

As I’ve repeatedly noted, President Trump doesn’t just tweet this stuff out for no reason.  We should all note that he sees all the GOP internal polling – and probably much of the Democrat internal polling – coming in from all over the country, so he knows how voter attitudes are shifting in the wake of the Kavanaugh smear.

It’s also important to note that it generally takes 10 days to 2 weeks for shifts due to major events like the Kavanaugh smear to fully show up in the polling data, so we will start seeing its full impact this week.  If, as the President says, something big is happening, even the fake polls from places like ABC and CNN will start showing it soon.

WATCH.

That is all.

Trump Disrupts Democrat War on U.S. Workers With New NAFTA Deal

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Hey, remember when all the “experts” were telling you that President Donald Trump could not possibly successfully renegotiate the 25 year-old NAFTA deal? – Yeah, they were wrong about that, too.

The new name’s a little clumsy, but the deal is done, and the deal is much, much better for America’s workers, especially those in blue collar, farming and union jobs.  Hey, remember when those were the kind of jobs the Democrat Party used to at least pretend to care about?  Yeah, good times…

Today, as you absorb the no-doubt slanted news about this new trade agreement, remember that the very same “experts” who told you this could not be done are also telling you that Donald Trump will never, never, never, ever be able to really get the Crazy Little Fat Guy in North Korea to de-nuclearize the Korean Peninsula.  Do not be surprised when the successful completion of that effort is a major plank in Trump’s re-election campaign in 2020.

The Teenage Drama Queen gets a by-line in the New York Times, and boy is it a hoot. – Former FBI Director and current teenage drama queen James Comey penned an op/ed for the sad old New York Times on Sunday, because of course he did.  The most corrupt director the agency has ever had slammed the mounting of this week-long FBI investigation into all the absurd accusations directed at Judge Brett Kavanaugh, not be cause the charges are so obviously false, not because the Judge has already been the subject of 6 previous in-depth, open-ended FBI background checks, but because…wait for it…you can’t “put a shot clock” on an FBI investigation.

In other words, the very same corrupt, pathological liar who twice put a strict shot clock on the agency’s sham “investigation” into Hillary Clinton’s illegal email server has of course joined the Democrat chorus against the week-long time frame for this investigation that the Democrats agreed to just 3 days ago.  There are perfectly descriptive words for James Comey, but I just can’t use them here.

Sunday’s @GDBlackmon Twitter Deep Thought…

Hey, you know it’s true.

Meanwhile, in the Texas Senate Race… – Last Thursday, when it looked like the Senate would be held into session over the weekend to deal with the Kavanaugh nomination, Ted Cruz informed Irish Bob O’Rourke that he would not be able to make it to Houston for their scheduled debate early Sunday evening.  On Saturday morning, Cruz notified Irish Bob that he could in fact make it to Houston thanks to the idiotic machinations of Arizona Senator Jeff Flake, but Irish Bob declined, saying he now had made other “plans.”

So, what was Irish Bob doing at the very time the debate was supposed to be taking place?  Why, he was engaged in an hour-long Facebook Live session from his kitchen.

Obviously, Irish Bob still hasn’t figured out how he’s going to backtrack from his false denial of leaving the scene of the wreck he caused while driving drunk back in the 1990s.  Until he does, we probably won’t be seeing any more debates between the two Texas senate candidates.

Back to the Kavanaugh nomination process one more time. – So, the Democrat playbook for this week is now clear…

  • Agree to a limited FBI investigation to last no more than one week;
  • Spend the weekend wailing that the investigation is tooooooooooo liiiiiiiiimmmmittttteeeeeddddd!!!;
  • Find male “acquaintances” of Judge Kavanaugh from high school and college to tell Democrat media activists that the Judge, when a teenager, was a sloppy drunk;
  • Pretend it’s a really big deal that the FBI is questioning the second, obviously lying, female accuser;
  • Have the Dragon Lady from Hawaii all over TV claiming that the investigation is “falling apart” before it even gets started in earnest;
  • And then, late in the week – probably Wednesday night or sometime Thursday – have another female accuser crawl out of the woodwork with more false allegations; or
  • Maybe even have some leftwing activist parent of one of the kids Kavanaugh has coached in basketball over the years appear on CNN or MSNBC and accuse him of being a pedophile.

Or maybe both new accusations will come.  Remember that the Democrats’ favorite Saul Alinskly tactic is “projection,” i.e., accusing the Republicans of the exact behaviors of which they themselves are guilty.  Thus, accusations of pedophilia are pretty much inevitable, and indeed the leftists at USA Today already ran an op/ed implying that of Kavanaugh as an initial shot across the bow.

These people are demented, depraved and despicable, and nothing is beneath them.  To them, this is a war, literally.  It is a war not just on Judge Kavanaugh, not just on President Trump, not just on Republicans, but on all Americans who are not part of one of their aggrieved classes.  Frankly, it has even become a war on many of them – witness the bullying and booing of Kanye West that took place during his appearance on Saturday Night Live this past weekend.

This is not your father’s Democrat Party.  There are no moderates in that party anymore, no Scoop Jackson Democrats or even Lloyd Benson Democrats.  It is only possible to see their true nature with clear eyes when you accept the reality that there simply are no more decent people in the national Democrat Party today.  Not one.

These people are all about one thing:  The re-acquisition of power.  They will do literally anything to achieve that goal.  So buckle up, and don’t be surprised by the depravity to come this week.

That is all.
