We Appear to be in the Midst of a Second IC-led Coup Attempt

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

It now appears certain that the Intelligence Community is attempting to take down a duly elected POTUS for a second time in three years. – Sean Davis at The Federalist reported late Friday afternoon that, at some undetermined point in August, the Office of National Intelligence secretly implemented a change to its “whistleblower” policy that eliminates the requirement that a person must possess first-hand information of wrongdoing in order to have a whistleblower complaint expedited through the process:

The brand new version of the whistleblower complaint form, which was not made public until after the transcript of Trump’s July 25 phone call with the Ukrainian president Volodymyr Zelensky and the complaint addressed to Congress were made public, eliminates the first-hand knowledge requirement and allows employees to file whistleblower complaints even if they have zero direct knowledge of underlying evidence and only “heard about [wrongdoing] from others.”

The internal properties of the newly revised “Disclosure of Urgent Concern” form, which the intelligence community inspector general (ICIG) requires to be submitted under the Intelligence Community Whistleblower Protection Act (ICWPA), show that the document was uploaded on September 24, 2019, at 4:25 p.m., just days before the anti-Trump complaint was declassified and released to the public. The markings on the document state that it was revised in August 2019, but no specific date of revision is disclosed.

The timing of this, given the second-hand hearsay nature of the fake “whistleblower” complaint that led directly to the Democrats’ impeachment effort this week, is too convenient to be mere coincidence. It is key to remember that former DNI Dan Coats and his Deputy, Sue Gordon, both left their jobs involuntarily on August 15, three days after the fake whistleblower complaint was formally filed.

We do not yet know whether this secret change in requirements was made before, on or after that date, but the answer to that question will be extremely revealing. Many have been wondering why it is that this complaint has been even allowed to move forward, given that the fake “whistleblower” admits he has no real first-hand information about any alleged wrongdoing by President Trump or anyone else.

Now we know.

The possession of first-hand knowledge has always been a crucial part of all federal whistleblower statutes, in part as a means of preventing this exact sort of hearsay-based complaint becoming the norm, and being used as a way to settle political grudges.

So, just a few months after the Intelligence Community’s first coup attempt against President Trump failed with the crashing and burning of the Mueller Report, it now seems certain that the IC is coordinating fully with Nancy Pelosi and House Democrats in mounting a second effort, using essentially the same playbook. Level a false charge, invent a legend around that charge, coordinate talking points with the fake news media, double-down every time the facts fail to support the legend.

Meanwhile, as treasonous snakes mount this second coup attempt on his own watch, Attorney General William Barr is probably keeping himself locked in a safe room at his home, practicing his bagpipes. People should be getting rounded up and flown down to Gitmo, but all we get from our Department of [No] Justice is crickets.

God Bless President Trump for having the courage to continue fighting while everyone else around him scurries for cover.

That is all.

The Biden Lead is Crashing Like the 1929 Stock Market

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

The Biden lead is crashing like the 1929 stock market. – Today’s Campaign Update has been predicting since April – when he formally entered the race – that Joe Biden’s polling lead would be gone by October and that he would leave the race for the presidency shortly after March 4, 2020, which is Super Tuesday.

As things turn out, the nation’s Unfrozen Caveman Senator is right on pace to achieve the first piece of that two-pronged prediction. The three most current new polls out this week all now show him in a statistical tie with Fauxcahontas, the life-long fraud who is now the candidate with all the momentum in the race. The polls all come from legitimate polling groups – Economist/YouGov, Emerson and Quinnipiac – which are independent from major U.S. fake media outlets. That’s an important distinction, since those major fake news outlets produce their “polls” as a means to create fake news instead of any real effort to measure the state of the race.

Biden’s once-strong leads in Iowa and New Hampshire, the first two contests in the race, have already disappeared into the ether, although he does still cling to leads in the most current polls in South Carolina and Nevada, the two contests that come after New Hampshire. Faced with this reality, the Biden campaign has now taken to saying that it is not important for their confused candidate to win Iowa or New Hampshire, which smart observers will note is exactly what the campaign of Rudy Giuliani kept saying back in 2008. How did that work out for the Mayor?

The big outlier in the national polls is The Hill/HarrisX poll. HarrisX is a legitimate polling group, and its poll, taken on September 20/21, came out before the controversy about Biden’s interference in the Ukraine on behalf of his ne’er-do-well son Hunter, broke into the news cycle. That one still had Biden’s support up over 30%, and Fauxcahontas way down at 14%, trailing even The Commie.

That is a real outlier compared to these three more-recent polls, and it will be interesting to see where it comes out in its next iteration. That may not happen until after October 1, since it has been on a two-week cycle.

Lots of other interesting stuff in these three most-recent polls, including:

Bernie Sanders is basically dead in the water at this point. He is stuck in the mid-teens, mainly because he has no new ideas that aren’t recycled from his 2016 effort. He just keeps on repeating the same tired Marxist talking points over and over again, and that just bores the short-attention-span Democrat voter base back to playing games on their IPads. Fauxcahontas has become the more interesting and energetic Marxist of the day.

Irish Bob O’Rourke has now fallen behind Andrew Yang. His strategy of attracting support by being the loudest, shrillest and most profane finger-pointer in the crowd has failed just as everything else he has ever tried in his life. He gone, he just don’t know it yet.

The same can and should be said of Cory Booker. He polls at dead zero in two of those three polls. His campaign recently let it be known that it is almost out of money and that he would probably have to leave the race soon if fundraising doesn’t pick up. There is no reason whatsoever why fundraising for the goofy Senator should pick up.

–  Like The Commie, Kamala Harris is also dead in the water. Her support numbers, which had been stuck in the 6-8% range throughout July and August, are now stuck in the 3-4% range. Like Booker, it is hard to see any reason why they  might suddenly pick up. As bad as she has been as a senator, she is even worse – absolutely horrible – as a candidate. For you college football fans, Harris is the Jim Harbaugh of the political world – blessed with more hype than Barack Obama, but unable to meet expectations on the field of play.

Then there’s Mayor Pete, or Preacher Pete as The Campaign Update prefers to call him. The little Deacon has one of the most loyal bases of support of any candidate in this race. The trouble is, that base of support has settled in right at 6%, and no one should expect him to move substantially above or below that level. He is the 6% candidate, waiting to become VEEP arm candy for Fauxcahontas in next year’s general election.

The only other thing worth noting here is that Tulsi Gabbard has now qualified under the DNC’s very mysterious rules for the October debate. Thus, there will be one actually interesting person on stage with 11 circus clowns for that one. Given Democrat voter preference for circus clowns, that will likely be Tulsi’s last stand.

All that having been said, the odds are now getting a little better for one of these candidates, most likely Fauxcahontas, to accumulate the necessary majority of delegates during the primary races to win on a first ballot at next year’s nominating convention. Biden’s rapid fall, combined with the inability of candidates like Harris, Booker, Preacher Pete or Irish Bob to gain any real traction, make it more likely that only 2 or 3 of those who survive into 2020 will be able to get to the 15% threshhold in each state to be awarded delegates.

This is now Fauxcahontas’s race to lose, which should come as no surprise to readers of The Campaign Update. We have consistently told you that Democrat voters love a good liar, and will pretty much always nominate the single biggest life-long fraud in the field. That has been the case in every nominating battle since 1992, and there was never any reason to think this one would turn out any differently.

Given that, here are my new odds for the ultimate winner of this race:

Fauxcahontas – Even money

Someone not in the current field – 2 to 1

Biden – 5 to 1

The Commie – 20 to 1

Preacher Pete – 50 to 1

Kamala – 50 to 1

The Field – 100  to 1

That is all.

Pelosi’s “Official” Fake Impeachment Inquiry Threatens The Country’s Survival

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

“It’s really a sad day for our country. I feel very sad right now.” – Nancy Pelosi

Oh, yeah, it really is a sad day for our country, San Fran Nan. – The saddest part of all of it is that many of us have known all along that the deranged, despicable, depraved Democrats would take the country down this road sooner or later since the day after Donald J. Trump was elected to the presidency. Every step the Democrat Party has taken, from the creation and funding of Antifa, to the efforts to entrap and frame a sitting President of the United States, to the Mueller Witch Hunt, to the Congressional Clown Circus led by Jabaa the Nadler and Bug Eyes Schiff, has obviously and overtly been designed to lead to yesterday’s crowning moment of shame.

We all knew the depraved Democrat Party would take the nation to this sorry point sooner or later, even though it has still never been able to find any actual legal basis for doing so. We knew this would happen because the Democrat Party no longer has any interest in governing under our constitutional republican system of government, and only cares about the acquisition and maintenance of political power.

This reality has been the case since at least 1992, but has never been rendered more nakedly obvious than it has since the Democrats and San Fran Nan assumed power in the House of Representatives on January 1 of this year. The Judiciary and Intelligence committees chaired by Nadler and Schiff, along with the Oversight committee chaired by the equally depraved Elijah Cummings, have yet to spend a moment of time on any real work for the public interest during the first 9 months of this year, instead maintaining a myopic focus on dummying up some pretense – any old pretense would do – to move towards impeachment of the President.

But here’s the funniest part of yesterday’s antics by Pelosi: Despite all the weasel words she spoke in her statement late in the afternoon, nothing real changed. Pelosi said this:

Image

The only problem here is that an “official impeachment inquiry” has no meaning under the constitution and the law. Pelosi knows that, which is why she used those specific words, and made no reference to mounting a formal impeachment inquiry via a vote of the full House, which would have some meaning under the law.

See, the speaker of the house has no power whatsoever to unilaterally declare a formal impeachment inquiry. None. Doing that requires a majority vote of the entire body of the House. That would mean San Fran Nan would have to somehow cobble together 217 actual, recorded “yes” votes on the floor of the House.

Given that the Democrats currently control 235 seats to 198 (2 seats are vacant) for the Republicans, one might think getting to a simple majority would be an easy task for the doddering, stammering Speaker. But one would be surprised for holding that thought.

Pelosi’s big problem in all of this is that she has 35 or so members who managed to steal districts in the 2018 elections normally held by Republicans. Few if any of those folks, who would like to get re-elected in those same districts next year and been working hard to fool their constituents into believing they are “moderates,” are willing to go on the record as formally supporting a formal impeachment inquiry targeting a Republican president when there are no real grounds for going down that radical road.

So, just as with everything else she and her fellow Democrats do, yesterday’s theatrics by Pelosi were just that: Theater. Dishonest theater. Nothing real will change – those committees will just keep doing what they’ve been doing all year.

The only thing that will change will be the talking points parroted by the Democrat toady media, which will henceforth parrot the words “official impeachment inquiry,” peppering them into every report they make. This is how the mass public brainwashing process works – repetition of key messages is crucial. Goebbels and his fellow Nazis called it the “big lie.”

If you don’t believe that’s what the Democrats are doing here, read this morning’s piece in Politico titled “Vulnerable Democrats fear impeachment messaging stumbles” and count the number of times Democrat members quoted in the piece focus on “messages.” In that 600 or so word piece, I count 15 references to “messages,” “messaging,” “talking points,” or some other iteration of those words. It’s pretty much all they talk about.

The Democrats are very desperate here, because their mass brainwashing efforts keep failing. As of yesterday, President Trump’s public approval rating in the Rasmussen survey stood at 53%, a two-year high and fully 6 points higher than the rating received by Barack Hussein Obama at the same point in his presidency 8 years ago. Trump’s standing in the RealClearPolitics average, which includes all the fake polls created by media outlets purely to drive fake news stories, stands at 45.1%, also a two-year high.

The truth is that Donald Trump is a very popular president when compared to his immediate predecessors in office, Obama and George W. Bush, and his base of support, which represents over 40% of the nation, is steadfastly loyal. Making matters even more desperate for the Democrat “leadership,” such as it exists, is the fact that all the Marxist/fascist promises made by the radicals running for their presidential nomination are backfiring, especially in those swing congressional districts.

The President is going to release the transcript of his call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky today, along with the complaint by the Democrats’ fake “whistleblower,” an Obama loyalist who has no first-hand knowledge of that conversation. That fake whistleblower will also testify before Bug Eyes and his committee in the coming days.

The transcript will no doubt prove the President said nothing wrong, but the fake media and their Democrat masters will do everything they can to spin it otherwise, or even better, to claim the transcript has been somehow “doctored.” Despicable media hacks at MSNBC and CNN were laying the groundwork for those tactics yesterday.

Make no mistake about this: Regardless of the ongoing brainwashing efforts by the Democrat/Media propaganda complex, if the Democrats move down this road and end up holding a successful impeachment vote in the House, Democrats in those swing districts will pretty much all lose their re-election bids. Any Republican who joins an effort to remove the President via a 2/3rds vote in the Senate will be writing the end to his or her political career, and possibly to the GOP itself. There will be no forgiveness for such a despicable act of sedition, nor should there be.

Finally, should the Senate end up removing the President from office absent any real grounds for doing so, then the social contract between the public and the entire ruling class, already hanging on by a mere thread, will have been completely severed. If that sad day should come to pass, all bets for our nation’s survival in its current form will be off.

That is all.

Why the Deranged Democrats Are Moving on Impeachment Now

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

So, why are the lunatic Democrats doing all of this fake impeachment stuff now? – Think about these consequences of the media’s being able to focus on nothing but all-impeachment all the time in the coming months:

Jeffrey Epstein very suspicious death: Completely out of the news cycle.

Major Democrat donor Ed Buck’s running a drug and sex ring from his home: Completely out of the news cycle.

Insane proposals from all the Marxists running for the Democrat presidential nomination: Completely out of the news cycle.

Pending indictments of Andrew McCabe: Completely out of the news cycle.

Pending FISA report from IG Michael Horowitz: Completely out of the news cycle.

Booming Trump economy: Completely out of the news cycle.

Those are just the near-term outcomes. Here are some longer-term considerations:

Ruth Bader Ginsburg has to leave the Supreme Court for health reasons: Media/Democrats will scream that no president under impeachment investigation should be allowed to nominate anyone to the Supreme Court.

Hamper other Trump court nominations: Media/Democrats will attempt to tie up Senate Judiciary Committee time with fake impeachment business.

Hamper Trump trade deals: Pelosi will use impeachment as an excuse to refuse to consider voting to approve the U.S. Mexico Canada Trade Deal. She and Schumer will also attempt to overwhelm the White House with impeachment-related demands, thus hampering Trump’s ongoing efforts to secure major additional trade deals with China, Great Britain and India.

What we are witnessing this week is nothing short of a Democrat Party/Media-led Civil War on the executive branch and middle America. It’s not a shooting war, yet, but you should not think for a minute that these deranged, power-mad people would stop short of taking us into one if they believe it will help them obtain and maintain political power.

That’s all they care about, at long last.

That is all.

How Long Before Biden Bows Out?

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

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

Image may contain: 1 person

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

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

Bear with me here.

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

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

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

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

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

 

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

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

But wait, there’s more:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Not likely.

That is all.

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

I’m just sayin’.

You Are a Child, Robert Francis O’Rourke

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

Give him credit, the dude knows how to get attention. – Irish Bob O’Rourke has always been an attention-seeker, and he’s always been good at it.

From his college career as a furry drunk-driving punk rocker and inept burglar, to his do-nothing terms in congress, to his failed challenge of Ted Cruz in 2018 to his rumblin’ stumblin’ bumblin’ three-time-re-booted presidential campaign, Irish Bob has always been able to gain the attention of an eager fake news media, the public and his opponents. The problem for him, his long-suffering parents and now his political party has been that his efforts to grab attention seem to pretty much always end in failure, often in disaster.

The past few days have provided a prime example of O’Rourke getting an unwarranted level of attention that will almost certainly redound disastrously for the Democrat Party. Think about it: Here is a guy who is barely averaging 2% in the national polling who yet again became the major topic of conversation on the Sunday morning talk shows. It all started last Thursday during the latest Democrat debate when O’Rourke uttered the threat, “Hell, yes we are going to take your AR-15, your AK-47.”

Call it the threat heard round the world. In making that threat, that “we” are coming for your guns, and having not one single other person on that stage rebut him, O’Rourke overtly committed not only himself but all the other contenders for the Democrat Party’s presidential nomination to doing what every gun owner in America has always known the leftists ultimately want to do, which is coming to get our guns.

That, after all, is the most important step in the creation of a fascist state, which is something the Democrat Party has been working diligently towards for the last century now. Fascist thuggery requires a docile, disarmed public, and Democrats from Franklin Roosevelt to George McGovern to Dianne Feinstein to Barack Obama to Bernie Sanders have been hinting around about gun confiscation for decades now, while always being careful to couch it in deceptive talking points designed to convince voters that it’s just baby steps, that they’re not coming for ALL of your guns and besides, it’s all for your own good.

But not Irish Bob. Irish Bob needed attention to try to re-re-re-re-boot his flailing campaign one more time, so he just blurted it out, right there on live national television. O’Rourke made a modest effort to sort of walk back his remarks on Sunday, but too late: The jack-booted cat is out of the bag now, and there’s no going back.

Delaware Senator Chris Coons gets it: “I’m a gun owner,” Coons said Friday in an interview on CNN. “My sons and I have gone skeet shooting and hunting and, frankly, I don’t think having our presidential candidates, like Congressman O’Rourke did, say that we’re going to try and take people’s guns against their will is a wise either policy or political move. That that clip will be played for years at Second Amendment rallies with organizations that try to scare people by saying Democrats are coming for your guns.”

Yes, it will. Because that’s what the Democrats ultimately will be doing if they ever regain full power in Washington.

Preacher Pete Buttigieg echoed Coons’s comments on CNN later on Sunday afternoon. You can bet other Democrats confronted with Irish Bob’s attention-seeking comments will be doing the same as their Party desperately attempts to crawfish its way back under cover of its deceptive talking points this week.

Irish Bob’s real problem is that he is still a child emotionally. He was probably largely ignored by his parents as a toddler, and figured out he could get their attention by throwing fits. Even in his mid-40s, he is still that 10 year-old brat at the beach who sits and watches as three other kids spend an hour carefully building a sand castle and then rushes in to kick it down just as they’re about to be finished.

In the wake of the tragic El Paso shootings in August, the shameless opportunist has now tried both approaches to bring attention onto himself. First, he decided the best way to exploit the tragedy was to be the loudest Democrat blaming it all on President Donald Trump. He figured the best way to be the focus of attention would be to drop a lot of F-Bombs while branding the President as a “white supremacist.”

When that third re-booting of his campaign by tossing a toddler fit didn’t work out for him amidst the cacophony of fellow Democrats deploying the same strategy, he realized he had to re-group. That was when he landed on the strategy of kicking down the gun confiscation sand castle his Party has spent a century constructing.

And just like that, with one nationally-televised kick of Irish Bob’s boot, that sand castle of deception has been washed away with the tide.

GOP Congressman Briscoe Cain got it right on Friday when he told O’Rourke, “You are a child, Robert Francis.”

Emotionally, that is absolutely true. But once again, Irish Bob the child got his attention, and that’s all that matters to him.

That is all.

Why Won’t These Elderly Democrats Retire?

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

First, some absurdity.

NFL Quarterback, 1964:

NFL Quarterback, 2019:

Image result for cam newton head scarf

No commentary necessary.

In case you missed it, San Fran Nan had another procedure during the August recess. Her eyebrows are now closer to her receding hairline than they are to her retinas:

Image

Also in case you missed it, watch as Joe Biden damn near loses his teeth while trying to answer a question at Thursday’s debate:

Which raises the eternal question: Why won’t these people ever retire? San Fran Nan is 79 years-old and still desperately clinging to her power. Biden is almost 77 and running a destined-to-miserable-failure race for the presidency. Both of these Democrat “leaders” often look and act like they barely know where they are at any given point in time.

And they’re not really exceptional compared to many of their colleagues. Bernie Sanders is almost 78. Patrick Leahy is 79. House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer is 80. House Majority Whip James Clyburn is 79. Stolen valor Sen. Richard Blumenthal is 73. Dickie Durbin is 74. Dianne Feinstein is a whopping 86 and still clinging to the hope she’ll be able to confiscate all your guns. Hillary Clinton is still plotting a behind the scenes at age 71 to find a way to steal the Democrat presidential nomination if there is a contested convention next year.

Hillary, by the way, is the same age as Uncle Cy Robertson:

Image result for uncle cy i'm in my prime gif

 

What is it that keeps these fossils hanging around? Why won’t they gracefully step aside and let the younger generation take over?  Is it the narcotic of political power? Is it the strange ability of “public servants” making about $170,000 per year to somehow accumulate hundreds of millions of dollars in wealth over the span of their careers? In the case of the Clintons, is it out of a sense of desperation as they try to find ways to avoid the wheels of justice catching up to them?

Whatever the motivation is, it’s a strong one. I’m 63, in very good health, and I’d frankly be thrilled to death to just hang up my spurs completely, get a home on a Caribbean island, and sit on my lanai watching the waves and sipping rum punches for the rest of my days.

But these elderly folks appear anxious to spend 2/3rds of their time glad-handing and fundraising and continuing to work unending 16-hour days. You have to admire their energy, even if  they do spend it on their tireless efforts to destroy American society.

That is all.

The Democrat Clown Car is on the Fast Track to a Brokered Convention

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

Are you ready for a deadlocked Democrat convention next year? – Because that’s where all of this Democrat traveling clown show is headed.

Fauxcahontas is now an even more-clear favorite to get to the convention with the most delegates next July, although her chances of arriving there with a full majority needed to win on the first ballot remain small. Hell, she’s already playing the role of the front-runner in the debates.

Last night in Houston, she stood quietly for the most part while also-ran doofuses like Irish Bob O’Rourke and Julian Castro and Amy Klobuchar and Andrew Yang shouted and gesticulated and poured out the “I’m gonna grab your guns” and “Trump’s a racist” red meat for the party’s lunatic Twitter-outraged base. During the debate’s first hour, almost 20 minutes went by in between times when Little Mouth Always Running actually opened her mouth on stage, as all the nitwits around her tried to tear each other apart. That could be an all-time record for Princess 1/1024th.

While Yang was promising to have his campaign illegally pay out $1,000 a month for the next 12 months to twelve families in order to buy their votes, Preacher Pete was trying to get everybody to sing his own particular weird version of Kumbaya, Castro was cracking jokes about Biden’s advanced age, The Commie was trying to croak out some Bolshevik nostrums from his 77 year-old sore throat, Kamala was cackling like an evil character from a 1950s Disney movie, O’Rourke was promising to come grab everybody’s guns and trying to figure out exactly when to toss out an f-bomb and Klobuchar was getting ready to start throwing notebooks at the moderators, the fake Indian was doing her best imitation of Sitting Bull, calmly observing the fray and happy to let her enemies destroy one another.

It was a smart strategy. Whatever else one thinks about Sen. Warren, you cannot deny that she’s strategically smart. I mean, hell, she spent a virtual lifetime pretending to be someone she isn’t in order to advance her career before Trump came along and exposed her fraud to the world. That alone tells you she’s a clever schemer.

She’s clever enough to understand that being a life-long fraud is in fact a badge of honor in a Democrat presidential nominating contest, and so there she was last night, standing right in the middle of that stage next to Biden. She probably came into last night planning to take some shots of her own at Biden, but quickly realized that Castro and Harris and other were doing a fine job of exposing the elderly hack for what he is.

That quick thinking also shows she knows her own limitations. She has to understand that her angry school-marm voice and speaking tone quickly begins to grate and irritate, so why overdo that during a 3-hour debate that was viewed by millions?

As for Biden, if it weren’t for the fact that he’s been such a despicable swamp creature hack for so many decades it would be sad watching his visible decline on national television. His cognitive functions are so clearly limited now that it is visible on his face every time he’s asked a question for which he hasn’t been coached, or one that touches on an uncomfortable subject. If you can stand it, go watch a replay of the debate on Youtube. You can see Biden visibly recoil and squeeze his eyes shut whenever he’s asked a question that surprises him, which was typically from another candidate, not the accommodating moderators.

I’ve been telling you since April that Biden’s polling lead would be gone by October and he’d be out of the race entirely after next March 4, Super Tuesday. He’s right on schedule to meet that calendar, especially after his performance last night. The more he gets exposed to the public, the worse he looks.

As for the others, Harris is done. She is an awful campaigner and frankly a horrid debater. Everything about her screams insincerity and meanness.

Sanders will also fade after this croaking performance. Democrat voters are all about optics and the feels, and a 78 year-old croaking at them for three hours will make them feel all nervous and stuff.

Irish Bob is a furry circus clown who just announced the fourth re-boot of his campaign in six months. He’s to the point where even shallow Democrat voters think he’s a shallow opportunist.

Julian Castro never has been in any way relevant in this race, and his low attacks on Biden last night won’t change that.

Preacher Pete is cute as a button and might look good as arm-candy for Fauxcahontas in a general election race.

Cory Booker is Cory Booker and always will be, so no one should take him seriously in this race.

Yang is just weird. What was going on with that top button on his shirt last night? Everyone kept waiting for it to pop open and expose some odd tattoo and thus only heard about 1 out of 7 words he had to say. Again, Democrat voters are all about optics and feels, dude. Get a shirt that fits.

Klobuchar is just the angry version of Kirstin Gillibrand. No reason for her to be up there in the first place. She’s just wasting everybody’s time.

I feel like I’m forgetting somebody here, but honestly, I don’t care.

Here are my updated odds for the 2020 Democrat nomination after last night’s atrocity:

Fauxcahontas – 3 to 1

The Commie – 10 to 1

Biden – 50 to 1

Harris – 100 to 1

Preacher Pete – 100 to 1

The Field – 100 to 1

Someone not yet in the race – Even odds

Brokered convention, here we come.

That is all.

Why Elizabeth Warren is now the Clear Favorite in the Democrat Race

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

Well, President Donald Trump has yet another new “challenger.” – Complete with blaring headlines at the increasingly leftwing Drudge Report, South Carolina Congressman and former Governor Mark Sanford has decided to jump into the race. He joins former Massachusetts Governor William Weld and former Congressman Joe Not-the-Eagles-Singer Walsh as a kind of NeverTrump cordon of sacrificial lambs who I guess will try to raise money and run in the various caucuses and primaries.

All three of these guys are your basic circus clowns. Weld is an ultra-liberal Democrat in a Brooks Brothers suit who does stuff like this because he can’t find any legitimate work. Walsh is a talk radio host who no longer has a talk radio program. Sanford is the guy who ran out on his family with his Argentinian girlfriend for two weeks while serving as Governor, and then claimed to have been “hiking the Appalachian Trail” when he re-surfaced.

These are the guys who NeverTrump puppet masters like Bill Kristol and Mitt Romney believe are fit to wrest the GOP 2020 nomination away from a sitting President with an extraordinary record of success. You might do better running Larry, Curly and Moe. At least they’d be entertaining.

Fauxcahontas Rising. – Despite the ongoing best efforts by our fake national news media to cover for his increasingly obvious loss of his faculties, the nation’s Unfrozen Caveman Senator continues his slow fade in the polling data.

The latest bit of distressing news for Creepy Uncle Joe comes from the CBS News Battleground poll of early primary/caucus states. This poll attempts to measure voter attitudes in the 17 states that will take us through Super Tuesday next March 3. Those 17 states include Iowa, New Hampshire, Nevada and South Carolina early on, and then conclude with both California and Texas in March.

Thus, it isn’t surprising that both Kamala Harris and Irish Bob O’Rourke land among the top 6 Democrats in overall support in these early states, given the massive presence of their respective home states. It is a little surprising how poorly those two fare overall, with Harris coming in at 8% support and O’Rourke barely registering at 4%.

But it’s the top of the rankings that really matters, and coming in at #1 in terms of overall voter support is not Joe Biden, but Fauxcahontas, the biggest fraud in the race. Which should surprise no one, given the historic Democrat voter preference for lifelong frauds like John Kerry, Al Gore, Barack Obama and Bill and Hillary Clinton to be the standard bearer for their party.

Little Mouth Always Running comes in at 26% support among the registered Democrats surveyed in these 17 early states, with Creepy Uncle Joe close behind (as he always seems to be with the nearest woman) at 25%. The Commie registers at 19% and Mayor Pete makes a cute little political sandwich in between Harris and O’Rourke, landing at 6%.

Those percentages are a little misleading, though, because the delegate count is what would really matter. CBS projects those numbers in this table:

So, the Unfrozen Caveman Senator retains a slight edge in that measure, though far short of the 748 he would need to constitute a pace to win a first-ballot majority at the DNC Convention. And looky there: Amy Klobuchar jumps into the top 6 to replace Preacher Pete, who is nowhere to be seen.

In keeping with its campaign to prop up the Serial Gaffer, CBS leads its write-up on the poll by saying, “This poll tells a story of Elizabeth Warren rising. But not Joe Biden falling.” Which is, of course, abject nonsense.

Let’s go back to April, when Biden announced his candidacy. Then, he started this race with a huge, 20+ point lead in pretty much every poll, registering at or above the 40% level in all of them. In this new poll, just five months later, he’s down to 25% in the 17 states that will essentially decide the race for all intents and purposes, and now trailing a woman who has spent her entire adult life pretending to be someone she is not for professional and financial gain.

True, he is still doing slightly better in the national polls, where he’s averaging about 29% support in the RealClearPolitics average. And the lead he still owns is due strictly to two factors: Very strong support among African-Americans, who don’t much care for all the radical socialists in the race, and this perception that he’s the most electable candidate in a general election against President Trump.

That’s all well and good for now, but here’s Biden’s real problem: The Democrat voter base has become ultra-radicalized, and is not likely to ultimately settle for an elderly white guy (Biden will be closing in on 78 when the Democrat convention comes around next summer) who barely knows where he is most days. Those voters are also not going to settle for an old white guy who still goes around bragging about his old segregationist pals in the 1970s Senate, and who still tells off-color jokes that demean women, Blacks and gays.

Take a look at that RealClearPolitics average again, and add up the percentage of voters who are supporting the radical candidates like Warren, The Commie, Harris, Buttigieg, Yang and O’Rourke: Their support comes in right at 50% to Biden’s 29%. That’s where the heart of the Democrat Party really lies.

Throughout the 2015/2016 GOP nomination contest, I repeatedly advised readers and clients to add up the percentage of primary voters who weighed in their support on behalf of the party’s non-conventional candidates. I included Trump, Ted Cruz, Ben Carson, Carly Fiorina and Rand Paul in that category. It was absolutely stunning how consistently their total support came in right at 63% throughout 2015 and through the early primaries. As Carson, Fiorina and Paul left the race, basically all of their support base migrated right over to Trump or Cruz, and they ended up the two finalists in the race (I don’t count Kasich, who stuck around but had basically no real support).

That was where the heart of the GOP voter base was in 2016, and the radical left is where the heart of the Democrat voter base is for the 2020 race. As O’Rourke, Yang and Buttigieg drop out of the race, and The Commie and Harris fall away later on, their voters are going to coalesce not around Biden, but around Fauxcahontas. This is pretty much baked into the cake at this point. Elizabeth Warren is really the odds-on favorite to go into next year’s convention with the highest number of delegates as of today. The big question is whether or not she will be able to the majority required to win on the first ballot.

If you think I’m crazy and still believe that Biden is the big favorite because that’s what all the “experts” are telling you, take a look at history: Since 1968, the early favorite to win a contested Democrat nominating race has only prevailed one time, in 2000, when Al Gore, a sitting vice president, became the nominee.

All the momentum in this race today is with Warren, and it’s pretty hard to see anything that will stop it. Democrat voters love a good fraud, and there is no more accomplished, blatant fraud in the race than Fauxcahontas.

That is all.
