Joe Biden Fumbles Through the Democrat Playbook in South Carolina

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

Another day, another half-filled high school gym. – When President Donald Trump (I never tire of typing those three glorious words) goes to a state, any state, to hold a rally, his advance people book the largest local enclosed arena, and he ends up speaking to a packed house of thousands with thousands more standing outside, watching on huge video screens.

When Joe Biden, the runaway leader in Democrat presidential nomination polls, goes to a state, any state, to hold a rally, his advance people ask the friendliest local high school principal to hold open his gymnasium for free, force as many of his kids as possible to be in attendance, and the candidate ends up speaking to a crowd of dozens. Don’t believe me? Here’s Creepy Uncle Joe coming into his South Carolina rally on Saturday:

Note to the intern who runs the Biden Twitter feed:  You’d be a lot better off hiding embarrassing video clips like that one. But please, ignore that advice, because this is fun.

Lots of stuff going on with the Biden campaign, most of it highly predicable, given the age and nature and party of the candidate. The most predictable part is that he’s basing his campaign on the standard Democrat playbook, which is lying and scaring people: Scaring the old folks, scaring the young folks, scaring black folks, scaring the gay folks – scare as many people as you can, because that’s the only way you can convince anybody to vote for a Democrat.

Hell, Biden’s even resorting to scaring working folks, because pretty much everybody is working these days thanks to Trump’s economy. His appeal to working folks is to say, yeah, you’ve got a job, but how is your boss treating you? Like some Democrat president is going to come into office and police all the bosses to be nicer to their employees, or something. It would be hilarious if you didn’t know that, deep down in his heart, he’s actually being serious.

Down in South Carolina, he did what Democrats always do first in that state, which is scare the Black folks. That’s like on Page 3 of the Democrat primary playbook, right after scaring the farmers in Iowa and scaring the communists in New Hampshire.

On Saturday, Biden told that high school gymnasium half-filled with mostly black folks that “You’ve got Jim Crow sneaking back in,” referring to the era of “separate but equal laws that held sway in much of the South prior to the civil rights movement of the ’50s and ’60s. It’s a damnable lie, but hey, he is a Democrat. This is what Democrats do.

A few hours later, speaking to a sparsely-attended fundraising dinner, the 76 year-old Biden slurred his words and referred to the current Prime Minister of Great Britain as “Margaret Thatcher.” Lady Thatcher, of course, left that office in 1990 and passed away in 2013. Biden’s been slurring his words at all of his campaign events, an issue that can be hidden by a friendly fake news media for awhile, but which will become starkly obvious once the televised debates begin.

Perhaps all of this explains why we continue to see more and more reporters complaining about being bullied by Biden’s staff, who are working very hard to prevent their frail, elderly candidate from having to actually answer a few questions from the press. Here’s an example from one of the complaining reporters:

The woman with the pony tail in that video is becoming infamous among the press corps, as she pushes and shoves reporters at every Biden stop to ensure they can’t get close enough for him to hear their questions.

We’ve been through all of this with a frail Democrat candidate before, of course, as we witnessed the Pantsuit Princess’s staff abusing the press corps throughout the 2016 campaign. At one point, the Fainting Felon’s staffers literally strung a rope around the press gaggle to hold them away from their sickly candidate; at another event, they actually locked one reporter in a broom closet to keep him from shouting uncomfortable questions.

Of course, you couldn’t blame them: The Grasping Grifter had all manner of health issues going on and she hasn’t uttered a public word in forty years that wasn’t written for her by someone else. She could never be trusted to take extemporaneous questions in the way President Trump does on an almost daily basis.

The same holds true for Biden. Even as a younger man, Biden was a gaffe-prone circus clown – you literally never knew what might come out of his mouth at any given time. Now that he’s older and his mind is obviously slowing down pretty rapidly (no shame in that – it happens to all of us) he cannot be trusted by his own staff to to field off-the-cuff questions from the press corps.

Biden is simply too old for this job. He just is. Again, there is no shame in that – I have nothing against elderly people and aspire to become one myself in the not-too-distant future. But our country simply cannot afford to have a frail, elderly man whose mind is obviously slipping occupying the Oval Office for four long years.

Biden had his window of opportunity four years ago, when he was still fairly cogent, to seek this office and passed it up under pressure from the Coughing Crook and Barack Obama. That window is now closed, though he hasn’t figured that out quite yet. But as the excitement over his long-delayed entry into this race fades, and the fake news media goes back to keeping its prom dates with Mayor Pete and Kamala Harris, the Democrat voter base will figure it out for him.

Joe Biden’s already had his best polling days in this race. It’s all downhill from here.

That is all.

Dying CNN Fakes up a Poll for Foundering Beto

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

Another day, another fake poll. – The Democrats and their media enablers have apparently decided it’s time to try to revive the moribund campaign of their former “next Kennedy”, Irish Bob O’Rourke. With the fake Hispanic’s support among Democrats mired in the mid-single digits for the last six weeks, party leaders and fake media mavens hoping their party’s primary season will produce an interesting race that doesn’t quickly boil down to a depressing slog between two near-octogenarians know that means they need their precious “Beto” up on stage waving his arms around and promising to use his office to ban everything from reliable electricity to guns to Tylenol.

So, what’s the easiest way to rev up Democrat base-voter interest in a candidate? Why, get the news-fakers over at CNN to dummy up a fake poll showing that Irish Bob is the one guy among the 20 or so circus clowns lined up to seek the nomination who can not just defeat, but wallop President Donald Trump in the 2020 general election. You betcha.

Presto! CNN has a new poll of “registered voters” this morning pretending to show that Precious Beto would beat the President in a head-to-head race by a 52-42 margin! It’s like magic, I tell ya!

Here are the fake poll’s full top-line results:

In a new poll Beto O'Rourke emerged as the most likely to take out President Donald Trump if he were to run against him in the general elections. Of six top Democratic candidates, those polled favored five of them over Trump

In addition to its obvious, blatant effort to pump up support for the Party’s fake Hispanic – hey, why do the party and its captive media continue to ignore the real Texas Hispanic in the race, Julian Castro? –  this poll is designed to serve a couple of other purposes:

  • Put a leash on the Democrats’ fake Indian, Elizabeth Warren, who amazingly has begun to show a little momentum among Democrat voters who, after all, love to be lied to; and
  • Reassure the restless among the Democrat base that the Party’s strategy of desperately trying to keep its whole “Russia Collusion” fantasy alive right through Election Day, 2020 is working.

So, just like the New York Times has done the past couple of days with their carefully-planted fake stories designed to support the Deep State narrative, when the Democrat Party poobahs need a favor, no fake news outlet is more willing to whip it out than America’s least-favorite news-flasher, despicable old CNN.

The irony here is that the Democrat Party’s “Russia Collusion” strategy obviously is failing, and the best way to tell that is by looking at CNN’s own ratings, which have crashed through the floor since the release of the Mueller Report and its revelation that there never was any “collusion” to begin with. At least, not by anyone involved in the Trump Campaign.

The fake news network’s ratings declined by an amazing 26% in April compared to March, as the fantasy it had used to attract viewers for two solid years came up a crapper. That’s an even more amazing 41% below the network’s average rating from April, 2018. If our nation’s airports stopped their mysterious practice of giving CNN a monopoly on their captive travelers, the cable network would have almost no viewers at all.

The big problem here for the Democrats is that they really don’t have anything else other than hate and division and lies to offer the American people. Those three things form the entire basis of their Party’s reason for existing today. There is no more there there. So they have no choice but to keep doubling and tripling and quadrupling down on the only things they know to do anymore.

That means that CNN, the New York Times and all the other fake media outlets in our national fake media universe are left with no choice but to double and triple and quadruple down right along with their masters.

What a sad and destructive existence these people lead.

That is all.

When Did “Christian” Become a Cussword for Democrats?

The Evening Campaign Update
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Christians observe Easter, they don’t worship it. – If you’re a Democrat, it is suddenly not enough for you to do everything you can to marginalize those who practice Christian faith in our country and around the world. Now, you can’t even utter the word “Christian” in a public setting, even on a day when hundreds of Christians have been brutally murdered by radical Islamic terrorists.

That is the only clear takeaway from yesterday’s madness, a day when almost 300 Christians lost their lives on Easter Sunday, Christianity’s holiest of days. This all took place in Sri Lanka, where terrorists set off at least 8 explosive devices in Christian churches and other sites central to the Catholic faith in the country as worshippers gathered to celebrate the life, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ.

But to hear leading Democrats tell the story, you’d have never known “Christians” were in any way involved. Somehow, the anti-Christian bias in the leftist community has now become so pervasive and radicalized that the various despicable faces of the Democrat Party dare not even utter the word, even in the face of mass murder.

To these people, “Christians” are no longer Christians, they have now become something called “Easter worshippers.” As if Easter is something they all “worship” rather than simply observe.

Don’t believe me?  Here’s what Barack Hussein Obama his own self had to say about the tragedy:

These victims weren’t Christians, you see – why, radical Islamic terrorists would never target Christians. No, these were mere “tourists” and “Easter worshippers.” Because of course they were.

Not to be outdone in the day’s exercise in Democrat diversion, the Pantsuit Princess chimed in with a tweet of her own, and it was, let us say, suspiciously similarly-worded to Obama’s. As in, they were probably written by the same talking points guru:

There’s that phrase again: “Easter worshippers.”

Oh, hey, then Texas Democrat presidential candidate Julian Castro felt the need to get in on the day’s parroting act:

Call me silly, but as a former Mayor of San Antonio, where Hispanic Catholics make up a huge portion of the population, I’m betting Mr. Castro is fairly familiar with the fact that Catholics and other Christians worship Jesus Christ, and merely observe Easter as a holy occasion. Why, odds are pretty good that Mr. Castro is himself at least nominally a person of the Catholic faith.

But wait, there’s more! Democrat after Democrat felt the need to weigh in with a parroting of Obama’s “Easter worshippers” sophistry – it became the day’s favorite leftist virtue signal on Twitter. Here’s a small sampling:

There is a lesson in all of this, and it is very clear: If you are a Christian and you vote for any Democrat, you are casting a suicidal vote.

This really is not complicated at all. Stop voting for people who want you and your faith to disappear.

That is all.

San Fran Nan Cracks Down on her Rambunctious Radicals

The Afternoon Campaign Update
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Just like that, the San Fran Nan crackdown on AOC and her radical cohorts begins. – The first thing you need to know about Democrat politicians is that they’re all just reciting from scripts written for them by other people. They all put their own little trademark spins on things – Irish Bob O’Rourke and Bernie Sanders also add in their trademark hand-and-arm-gesticulations – but in effect, they’re all nothing but a bunch of talking points parrots at the end of the day.

The second thing you need to understand is that everything contained in their scripts is based on polling and focus group data. Nothing is spontaneous, nothing is extemporaneous, nothing is meant to communicate what they really believe. Hell, it’s just the opposite, really: Pretty much everything in the scripts is designed to obfuscate what they really believe and want to do to you if elected.

Only when you understand the above can you really digest and understand what has taken place over the last couple of days.

Nancy Pelosi and her fellow leaders in the congressional Democrat caucus must have gotten some very bad polling data on the antics of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ilhan Omar and their fellow radicals in the House. That’s the only way to explain the following all taking place so close together:

  • Pelosi’s puff piece interview with Leslie Stahl on “60 Minutes”, in which she was entirely dismissive of AOC and her fellow radicals, saying they amount to “about 5 members,” and going onto say that “a glass of water with a D next to it” would easily win Ocasio-Cortez’s Bronx district.
  • The announcement by AOC just before the airing of that Pelosi interview that she would no longer use Facebook and would be cutting back on all social media due to “health” concerns. “I actually think that social media poses a public health risk to everybody,” Ocasio-Cortez said. “There are amplified impacts for young people, particularly children under the age of 3 with screen time,” she said, “But I think it has a lot of effects on older people. I think it has effects on everybody. Increased isolation, depression, anxiety, addiction, escapism.” Yeah, sure, right, uh-huh.
  • The sudden relative silence from the Twitter account and gaping mouth of fellow radical leftist Ilhan Omar, who got into a furious controversy over her latest anti-American remarks that lasted most of last week.

The ongoing radical, anti-American antics by these two and fellow radical leftist freshman congresswoman Rashida Tlaib has no doubt led to some highly-negative polling data now flowing into the office of the Speaker of the House, and she ain’t happy about it.

If you really believe AOC’s absurd cover for dramatically scaling back her social media antics, boy do I have some waterfront property out in West Central Texas I’d like to talk to you about. AOC built her entire campaign on social media, and has practically lived on Facebook and Twitter since taking office in January. The same is true of Omar, who has been a near-constant presence on Twitter and in front of the nearest available TV camera since the day she was sworn into office.

San Fran Nan most likely finally had enough of these two primadonnas constantly upsetting her and the Democrat Party’s preferred daily narratives and stealing all the media attention for themselves. So she has obviously ordered them to rein themselves in for awhile and let the Party’s “grownups” – such as they are – resume control of the messaging.

Too bad – these crazy freshman kids have provided the most entertainment value through the entire political season in the first four months of the year.

Don’t fret, though: There’s no way these attention hogs can contain themselves for long. But for now, anyway, San Fran Nan appears to have exerted some semblance of control.

That is all.

Mayor Pete Has Stolen Beto’s Media Date to the Dance

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

Why, what could possibly go wrong? – A team of Chinese scientists is grafting human genes into monkeys, in an effort to make them “smarter and more human-like.” I swear I don’t make this stuff up.

According to the report in the Business Recorder, “Researchers edited the human version of a gene known as ‘MCPH1’ into the macaques. The gene made the monkeys’ brain develop along a more human-like timelineThe gene-hacked monkeys showed better reaction times and improved short-term memories in comparison to their unaltered peers...”  I smell a sequel to “Plant of the Apes” in there somewhere.

In all seriousness, these monkeys should immediately announce their candidacy for the Democrat presidential nomination. They would smarter than half the field, better-behaved that Irish Bob O’Rourke, make a great target for Amy Klobuchar to vent her frustrations, and be far more “human-like” than Joe Biden or Bernie Sanders.

And speaking of Irish Bob O’Rourke… – Here’s the problem with being a media-created Democrat “Rising Star”: Everything tends to go to crap when the media inevitably finds a new rising star to create. For our hero, Irish Bob, it’s all turning into a tale of woe – or, more accurately, one of woeful polls that came out yesterday in the states that make up the first two contests of the nominating process.

First came a new Monmouth University poll of registered Democrat voters in Iowa, where O’Rourke spent the first week or so of his official campaign in March, driving around the corn fields in his carbon dioxide-emitting gas-powered van because he wanted to show he was a man of the people and the people in Iowa don’t drive no Teslas because Teslas don’t use no Ethanol, don’t you know. That pandering strategy apparently did not work out so well for our sheep suit-wearing fake Hispanic, nor did all the jumping up on the nearest table and waving his arms to get attention.

The results of the Monmouth poll are clear: Iowans don’t much care for Beto. O’Rourke, who just a few months ago was widely touted as one of the favorites in this race by his legion of media adorers, came in a very weak sixth place with just 6% support, trailing Joe Biden, Bernie Sanders, Pete Buttigieg, Kamala Harris and even Fauxcahontas in the results.

Yes, friends, Iowa Democrats prefer a fake Indian to a fake Hispanic. Go figure.

As if that result weren’t awful enough for the premiere media darling of 2018, the folks at St. Anselm’s College released a poll of New Hampshire Democrat voters to make matters even more depressing. It turns out that Granite State Democrats would rather live free or die than vote for a circus clown who livestreams his dental cleanings and calls Bibi Netanyahu a racist.

Irish Bob again comes in a very weak sixth place, again with just 6% support in this poll. He trails the same five other candidates as in New Hampshire, though in a slightly different order, with the fake Indian popping up ahead of Harris in this state.

So, what’s going on here? Well, several things.

First, as I noted a few weeks ago, Irish Bob most likely missed his window of opportunity to become an immediate, early leader in this race. He was without question the media’s favorite Democrat at the end of 2018 – they had a crush on him like a high school cheerleader with a crush on the team’s quarterback. That crush would have continued and even intensified had he returned the media’s longing desires by immediately and decisively announcing his candidacy on New Year’s Day or very shortly thereafter.

But he didn’t do that. Instead, he did what high school quarterbacks often do and fooled around for a few months. While the adoring media longed to have its precious Beto in the race, Irish Bob chose to play the field, as it were, hemming and hawing, often disappearing for weeks at a time, and refusing to commit to the relationship that the media so desperately desired.

In the meantime, other candidates anxious to attain the media’s “Rising Star” status were getting into the race and eagerly courting the media’s affections. First came Kamala Harris, who rocketed up the charts firmly into a strong 3rd place behind Biden and Sanders as soon as she offered to take the media out on their first date. It seemed to be a match made in fake news media heaven for awhile, until Harris began committing repeated gaffes, like getting caught on camera letting a CNN fake reporter help her pick out jackets at a high-dollar department store. That show of favoritism to one fake media outlet served to turn other fake media outlets off and had them go out looking for another “Rising Star” to create.

Enter Pete Buttigieg, or “Mayor Pete”, as his media adorers now love to call him. Young, good-looking, smart, quick with the recitation of his favorite talking points, able to hold his own in a tough interview with Chris Wallace – young Mayor Pete seemingly has it all, including being openly gay and married, which is like manna from heaven for his media courtiers.

As first Irish Bob’s and then Kamala’s “rising stars” have faded, it is no accident at all that Mayor Pete’s has eclipsed them in the Democrat Party’s media-created night sky. That’s what a plethora of softball interviews on the cable and broadcast networks, along with all the glowing “He’s just like another Kennedy!” profiles in the New York Times, the Washington Post, the New Yorker and Vanity Fair will do for a guy.

And here’s the thing about Mayor Pete: He’s not stupid or self-absorbed enough to just blow his media cheerleaders off, like their precious Beto did. Nor is he inept enough to engage in a similar series of off-putting gaffes like the bumbling Kamala.

No, Mr. Buttigieg is not a mere shooting star, no flash in the pan, as it were. You should get used to seeing his name running strong in the polling in this race, at least until someone even more attractive to the fickle fake media cheerleaders comes along and sweeps them off their feet.

Other than possibly those monkeys in China, it’s getting harder and harder to see who is still out there who might swoop in and get the media’s date to the Homecoming dance.

That is all.

With “Moderate” Democrats Like These, Who Needs Radicals?

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

Why, that’s so moderate! – Tim Ryan became the 2,342nd Democrat to announce his presidential candidacy this week, and the fake news media universally declared him to be a “moderate” among the field of socialists, Leninists, Stalinists, Marxists and outright commies who were already in the race.

How do we know Mr. Ryan, a Democrat congressman from Ohio, is “moderate”? Why, just look at his position on abortion: He’s all in favor of murdering children right up to the point at which they’re about to be born into this world, but unlike all the other ghouls already in the race, he’s against killing them after they’re already breathing free air. In reality, Mr. Ryan is every bit as batsh*t crazy as any of the other lunatics in the race, but he has a nice, tidy haircut, speaks fairly softly, isn’t out there on TV every day lying about having inside information that President Donald Trump is a spy for the Russkies, and as I say, has yet to announce his support of outright infanticide.

That makes him a “moderate” among today’s Democrat Party. My goodness.

And speaking of “moderate” Democrats… – Ok, just kidding.  I’m talking about our very favorite demented Democrat Socialist freak, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, or “AOC” for short.

AOC has apparently been taking “blackspeak” lessons from Hillary Clinton, and it got her into yet another controversy yesterday after she gave a speech to fake Rev. Al Sharpton’s National Action Network conference.

But first, a reminder of the context here: Who could ever forget this clip of the Pantsuit Princess giving a talk in Selma, Alabama, employing her impression of what Democrat racists like to refer to as “southern negro dialect”:

The insulting, condescending pandering to the mostly-black audience in the room that day literally bleeds through the screen. The Coughing Crook’s political mentor, segregationist Arkansas Sen. J. William Fulbright, would have been so proud.

As always, AOC chooses her own role models unwisely (first Stalin and Pol Pot, now the Fainting Felon), and she decided it would be just a peachy idea to engage in a little HRC condescension of her own when speaking to Sharpton’s audience.  The similarity is spooky:

To be clear, her words are fine: All of the lines of work she talks about there amount to very noble work that needs to be done, and I’ve done most of them myself in my younger days. But why try to say it all in a fake dialect? What’s the point of that, other than patronizing condescension and contempt for the audience?

Naturally, Twitter went wild in response to the release of that video, mocking the freshman congresswoman for descending even further into the depths of Democrat depravity than she had already gone before, which frankly had seemed almost impossible for her to do. And very predictably – as is her habit – AOC responded to the mocking by trying to paint herself as some sort of victim:

The problem is, no one was talking about “her” voice or her “distinct linguistic culture” – had she stuck to her own very distinctive accent, no one would’ve said boo about it. She was being slammed for trying to appropriate an entire class of people’s own accent and dialect, and failing miserably in doing so.

It’s demeaning to the audience, it’s insulting and yes, it is racist. Yet, there is a certain class of Democrat politician – usually, the phoniest among them – who think it’s a perfectly fine thing for them to do in front of largely-black audiences. YouTube is littered with videos of prominent, heinously phony Democrats like Barack Obama and Al Gore, in addition to the Grasping Grifter, employing this insulting tactic.

Now, AOC takes her place among that millieu. She’s learning fast what it takes to become a real rising star in the Democrat Party today.

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.

The Real “Rising Stars” in the Democrat Nominating Battle

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

By now, we all know that Irish Bob O’Rourke is a fake “rising star” in this year’s Democrat presidential nominating contest. Irish Bob always was little more than a pure media creation, and he is now struggling on the national stage mainly because the same media that created and supported him in his 2018 run against Ted Cruz has now moved on to campaigning for Kamala Harris and The Commie.

But there are two real rising stars in the Democrats’ nominating battle, and their names will probably surprise you: Andrew Yang and Pete Buttigieg.

I talked about Yang and his insane plan to just cut a $1,000 monthly check to all American adults in Tuesday’s Campaign Update, but he’s worthy of further discussion, because he’s exactly the kind of candidate who could suddenly catch fire in this race, especially if he were to perform strongly in the first couple of debates this summer.

His personal story is very compelling, especially to younger Democrat voters: He’s a first-generation American in his family, the son of parents who legally immigrated from Taiwan. He’s young (44), he’s good-looking, he’s intelligent, he’s articulate, he does well on television, and he’s really good at sticking with his talking points and avoiding giving direct answers to questions, a talent Democrat voters really, really love.

The fact that he’s a businessman would enable Democrat voters to insincerely brag about not nominating their usual standard-issue politician, and the fact that he’s not an old white guy would definitely appeal to the Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez followers who believe old white men are responsible for all of their own failings in life. If he were a woman or a trans-gender, the Democrats would simply call off their primaries and nominate him by acclamation; but as it is, he ticks off an awful lot of the boxes one must tick off in order to attract the votes of the demented Democrat base.

Yang is not showing up in the polls yet, but as I noted on Tuesday, he has been attracting high turnouts for his events and he has already collected enough money from a large enough number of contributors to qualify for the first debate in June.

Bottom line: This is a very smart guy who is worth keeping an eye on.

Pete Buttigieg, the 37 year-old, publicly gay Mayor of South Bend, Indiana, is another very smart guy who deserves some attention in this race. Yeah, he’s a white male, but he’s not old, so he gets a pass from the AOC “blame everything on old white guys” crowd, which is a rapidly-growing segment of the Democrat base.

Here is another young, good-looking, intelligent and articulate guy who does extremely well on television. How well does he do on television? He spent 12 minutes this past Sunday morning being peppered with pretty tough questions by Fox News Sunday host Chris Wallace, and never missed a beat. Never once strayed from his preferred talking points, never hesitated to give an evasive non-answer to Wallace’s direct questions. The man has a very high degree of equanimity, which is going to come across your TV screens during the upcoming debates.

On top of all of his other attributes, Buttigieg is also a Rhodes Scholar, a Harvard graduate, and a commissioned Naval Intelligence Officer who spent seven months in 2014 serving his country in Afghanistan. I personally have no use for Harvard graduates, but Democrat voters think it’s all gnarly and stuff. From that perspective, it’s quite a resume’.

Buttigieg has also reportedly raised enough money from enough individual contributors to qualify for the early debates, and has also begun showing up in the polls, turning up with 3% support in this week’s Emerson poll. If he can perform as strongly in those early debates as he did on Sunday with Chris Wallace, this is a guy whose campaign could really catch fire.

To be clear, I don’t agree with either Yang or Buttigieg on anything from a political standpoint. Their policy proposals – packing the supreme court is Buttigieg’s favorite issue right now – are your standard-issue Democrat/socialist lunacy.

But just looking at their respective backgrounds and personal attributes, and doing so from the perspective of the demented Democrat voter base, these two guys seem the most likely to rise in the race as no-chance candidates like Gillibrand, Klobuchar, Booker and Warren inevitably drop out. One or both could really catch a wave and jump into the top tier by the time Iowa and New Hampshire come around next January.

It’s going to be a fun – and frightening – process to watch.

That is all.

Fauxcahontas Sounds the War Cry on Flyover Country

The Afternoon Campaign Update
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

By now, most of you have heard that, in her town hall event on the Collaboration News Network (CNN), Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren endorsed the idea of completely eliminating the Electoral College, because of course she did.

“Every vote matters and the way we can make that happen is that we can have national voting, and that means get rid of the Electoral College,” Warren told the audience, “I believe we need a constitutional amendment that protects the right to vote for every American citizen and makes sure that vote gets counted. We need to put some federal muscle behind that, and we need to repeal every one of the voter suppression laws that is out there.”

There’s a lot to unpack there, so let’s start with the second part first: There simply are not any “voter suppression laws” on the books anywhere in the United States of America today, and there haven’t been since sometime in the late 1960s.

What the fake Indian Senator is doing there is the standard Democrat tactic of putting flowery language around eliminating voter ID laws. It’s just a part of the ongoing effort by the Democrat Party to make it as easy as possible for non-citizens and non-living persons, i.e., the “dead”, to vote for Democrats. These people are all about stealing elections via voter fraud, and are willing to do or say literally anything to achieve that goal.

Now, onto this attack on the Electoral College.

There was a time in the not-so-distant past when Democrats were all about protecting the sanctity of this crucial American institution, an institution that has played a vital role in preserving our Republic, and giving it a stability that no other democracy on the face of the earth has enjoyed over the last 230 years. That time was as recently as the 1980s, when Republicans were still competitive all across the Rust Belt and the Northeast, and in big population states like California and New York. Because the GOP ran up massive edges in vote totals all across the Southern states and the Midwest, Democrats would literally freak out anytime anyone even suggested doing away with the Electoral College.

Why? Because the entire purpose of the Electoral College is to ensure that no region of the country or handful of big population states in which one party or the other dominates the vote would be able to force a president on the rest of an unwilling country. Fauxcahontas and her fellow Democrats are bitter about the Electoral College today for the simple reality that, in 2016, this stroke of absolute genius by our nation’s founders worked exactly as it was designed to work.

Were it not for the Electoral College, our nation would today be stuck with President Fainting Felon due to her ability to run up lopsided vote margins in California and New York and a handful of other coastal states. Indeed, California alone accounted for virtually all of the Coughing Crook’s popular vote margin. The will of the states that lie in the vast middle of the North American continent – the 80% of America that coastal liberals like to refer to as “flyover country” – would have found ourselves completely disenfranchised and subject to the whims of a madwoman.

If you live in Flyover Country, that great sea of almost pure red on the map pictured below, you need to understand that the Democrat Party is doing everything it can to ensure your vote in future presidential elections will no longer matter. Because that is exactly what the impact of eliminating the Electoral College would be.

Luckily for all of us, the Electoral College is enshrined in the U.S. Constitution, and the only way do away with it would be via a constitutional amendment.  So long as Americans who truly do want their presidential votes to count remain educated on the matter and vigilant, getting that done will be virtually impossible.

The Democrat Party now finds itself willingly at war with so many Americans:

  • Unborn, and even just-born, children
  • Jewish Americans
  • Organized Labor
  • Older Americans (as discussed in this morning’s Campaign Update)
  • White men
  • Trump supporters
  • Everyone in Flyover Country

Obviously, there is a great deal of intersectionality among those various groups, but taken together, they constitute an overwhelming majority of the voting public. If everyone included in those groups would wake up to the reality of the mendacious nature of today’s Democrat Party, no Democrat could ever be elected to any office outside of San Francisco, Seattle, Austin, Chicago, Washington, DC or Manhattan again.

That is all.
