On Biden and Reade, The New York Times Renders Itself Beyond Parody

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

It would be humorous if it weren’t so tiresomely predictable at this point. – This might be hard for you to believe, but there are still millions of Americans out there who believe the New York Times is a “news” organization. That hasn’t been the case since at the least the 1930s, when the Times served as an apologist platform for Adolph Hitler, just as it today serves as little more than an apologist platform for the national Democrat Party.

One of my favorite comedies is “So I Married an Axe Murderer,” starring Mike Meyers in multiple roles. He plays the lead character, and also the lead character’s father. The father is a crusty old first generation immigrant from Scotland who walks around in his underwear passing wind and hurling insults, and who believes that Colonel Sanders is the head of a worldwide conspiracy.

One of that film’s funniest scenes involves not the father, but the also-Scottish, long-suffering mother, who at one point asks her son “Charlie, hand me the paper,” pointing to a copy of the old supermarket tabloid The Weekly World News.

“Mom,” Charlie replies, “I find it interesting that you call The Weekly World News ‘the paper.’ A paper contains facts.”

Well, if the New York Times is in any guide, not anymore.

Over the weekend, the Democrat activists who make up the Times’ editorial board published one of the most outrageous op/ed pieces in U.S. newspaper history, one that crusty old long-time reporter and anchor Brit Hume referred to on Twitter Sunday as being “Beyond parody.” It truly is an amazing case of a stunning lack of self-awareness, highly-predictable hypocrisy and just plain old bad faith to the public interest that the free press is supposed to dutifully protect.

The piece begins with a summary of Tara Reade’s accusations of sexual harassment, sexual assault and what the hypocritical #MeToo movement would characterize as “rape” if Biden were anyone other than the presumptive presidential nominee of its favorite political party. But then the editorial board lurches into this paragraph:

In 2018, this board advocated strongly for a vigorous inquiry into accusations of sexual misconduct raised against Brett Kavanaugh when he was nominated to a seat on the Supreme Court.

Why yes, yes it did. It actually advocated for an investigation not by congress or some disinterested 3rd party, but by the FBI, which, thanks to the media uproar at the time, ended up taking place and finding nothing. And remember, the wild accusations hurled by the obvious liar Christine Blasey Ford had none of the true contemporaneous supporting attestations and evidence that support Ms. Reade’s claims.

In its very next three sentences, the Times then says the following:

Mr. Biden’s pursuit of the presidency requires no less. His campaign, and his party, have a duty to assure the public that the accusations are being taken seriously. The Democratic National Committee should move to investigate the matter swiftly and thoroughly, with the full cooperation of the Biden campaign.

You read that right: Where the Times called for a freaking FBI investigation into a guy who wanted to become one of nine Supreme Court justices, it wants the guy seeking to become the one and only holder of the highest and most powerful office in the land to be investigated by his own political party. If this were 1955, this same editorial board would no doubt advocate that famous mob boss Frank Costello be investigated by a committee of the Five Families.

It’s maybe the most absurd thing ever printed in a U.S. newspaper, but it only gets worse from there. Here’s the very next paragraph, in which the Times literally lays out the DNC talking points on Ms. Reade:

Ms. Reade’s account has some apparent inconsistencies. Last year, she was one of several women who came forward with complaints of Mr. Biden hugging or touching them in ways that made them uncomfortable, but she did not raise the assault accusation until this March. She says she tried to share her story with the media earlier, only to get “shut down.”

First, the #MeToo people have told us thousands of times over the past two years that it is entirely common for a woman who has been sexually assaulted to be reluctant to come forward with her full accusations, largely due to paragraphs just like this one printed in the newspapers. This paragraph is a literal outrage in the context of women who have suffered sexual abuse.

And that last sentence, which attempts to lead readers to believe Ms. Reade is not being honest about being shut down by the media earler? On Sunday, the Associated Press admitted to having an interview with Ms. Reade months ago on this subject, only to decide to kill the story.

Think this editorial cannot possibly get any worse? Boy are you in for a disappointment. Several more paragraphs down, we get this little gem:

While understandable, this concern is not prohibitive — and Mr. Biden’s word is insufficient to dispel the cloud. Any inventory should be strictly limited to information about Ms. Reade and conducted by an unbiased, apolitical panel, put together by the D.N.C. and chosen to foster as much trust in its findings as possible. Admittedly, this would be a major undertaking. Mr. Biden served 36 years in the Senate. He turned over nearly 2,000 boxes and more than 400 gigabytes of data to the University of Delaware; most of it has not been cataloged. But the question at hand is no less than Mr. Biden’s fitness for the presidency. No relevant memo should be left unexamined.

You read that right: As its’ justification for failing to call for an FBI investigation as it did in the Kavanaugh case, the Times asks its readers to believe that the DNC – by definition a political entity, and in practice one of the most despicably and aggressively hyper-political entities on the face of the earth – is capable of conducting an “apolitical” investigation of its own nominee.

The suggestion is absurd on its face: Who exactly would the Times suggest placing on such an “apolitical panel”? In this society in which literally everything and everyone has been politicized, it is frankly impossible that such a panel could be assembled by anyone, no matter how well-meaning, and DNC Chairman Tom Perez is certainly not well-meaning.

As for the University of Delaware records, they’ve already been scrubbed, and the Times editorial board knows it. The Biden campaign admits that several of its operatives spent days scouring those records weeks ago. Whatever documents relevant to Ms. Reade’s allegations that may have once been there are now safely long-gone and likely burned.

The Times, again as predictable as the sun rising in the West (at least, according to the Times), closes its cynical appeal to the DNC to be “apolitical” with this hyper-partisan final paragraph:

Mr. Biden has set higher standards for himself. That has been central to his appeal. His campaign is founded on the promise of restoring sanity, civility and decency to the presidency. Even if certainty isn’t possible in this matter, the American people deserve at least the confidence that he, and the Democratic Party, have made every effort to bring the truth to light.

You knew there was no way this collection of Democrat activists could get through 500 words without at least one attempt to smear President Trump, right? Of course you did.

The notion that Joe Biden has set “higher standards for himself” is laugh-out-loud ridiculous. This is a guy who, on the campaign trail, has continued his habit of fondling children and women, holding them too close, sniffing them and rubbing them with his spindly fingers. He apparently cannot help himself. He is a guy who has on multiple occasions this year challenged attendees at his own rallies to go outside for a fight. This is civility? This is decency?

And as for “sanity,” well, let’s be honest and recognize that Biden is also a guy who has repeatedly and clearly demonstrated that he often has no idea where he is, often is incapable of reading from a teleprompter, needs to have his despicable wife sitting next to him to keep him on message and has only a sporadic acquaintance with reality.

Joe Biden is not capable of handling the office of the presidency, and the Times editorial board knows this. But they just keep lying to their readers on behalf of the Democrat Party nevertheless.

Beyond parody, indeed. Beyond decency, in fact.

That is all.

Down Goes the Commie! Down Goes the Commie!

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

From a report in the New York Times:

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

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

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

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

[End]

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

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

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

Adios, Commie.

Mini-Mike Just Quietly Bailed Out the DNC

The Evening Campaign Update (Because the Campaign Never Ends)

Campaign finance laws? What campaign finance laws? – Apparently, federal campaign finance laws never envisioned the scam just pulled off by Mini-Mike Bloomberg. I told you when he got into the race that this was all a scam, that he wasn’t really seriously seeking the nomination, and his actions since that time only made my case.

Here’s how the scam worked:

  • In most campaign seasons both the RNC and DNC are flush with money and able to throw millions around to vulnerable campaigns and run TV and social media ad campaigns;
  • As of last November, though, the DNC was flat, dead broke and unable to raise enough money even to get out of debt;
  • Put simply, the DNC needed either a bailout or a proxy. Mini-Mike provided both;
  • Enter Mini-Mike and his fake presidential “campaign”;
  • The DNC couldn’t run ads attacking President Trump, but Mini-Mike, a multi-multi-multi-billionaire certainly could;
  • Even better, as a declared candidate for the office, he qualified for low advertising rates TV networks and stations are required to offer, leveraging his hundreds of millions of dollars even more;
  • So he spent three solid months, from early December through early March, spending a grand total of more than $900 million in his fake campaign, most of which went into anti-Trump advertising;
  • After failing to win a single contest and only a small handful of convention delegates, he abandoned his fake campaign after Super Tuesday.

Friday, Politico reported that, as a final act of largess to the DNC, he is deeding his state campaign operation to the Party, firing all of his employees who he promised to employ through November, and “donating” the state campaign budget’s remaining $18 million balance to it.

From the Politico report:

Mike Bloomberg’s defunct presidential campaign laid off hundreds more staffers Friday as he announced that that he’s folding his massive battleground operation into the Democratic National Committee.

Many of the Bloomberg aides — including those purged in an initial round of dismissals—were holding out hope he would deliver on a promise to keep them on his payroll through November, particularly with the coronavirus baring down. But those hopes were also dashed Friday when the staffers were told in frank conference calls that Bloomberg would not move ahead with his planned super PAC, and instead would cede his state operation to the DNC, including an $18 million infusion to help presumptive nominee Joe Biden.

The staffers, who said they were lured to the late-starting campaign with yearlong guarantees of competitive pay and health benefit packages, were invited to apply for jobs with the DNC as part of a “competitive process.”

“I guess it’s cheaper to give the DNC $18 million than keep promises because @MikeBloomberg just fired his whole campaign staff — including those of us promised jobs though November on his IE,” Amol Jethwani, a former aide, wrote in a tweet. “Disappointed I don’t have a job. Not surprised that a billionaire is cheating scum.”

Several other former aides said in interviews that the news comes as a massive blow amid the tanking economy. They believe the campaign has repeatedly strung them along while misrepresenting future opportunities.

“I am disgusted by Mike Bloomberg and his staff,” one of the Bloomberg aides, who like several others spoke on the condition of anonymity, told POLITICO on Friday. “He has left us with no health insurance during this pandemic. I have a family and do not know what we will do at the end of the month.”

The person added, “If the DNC and Joe Biden choose to ignore us, they are complicit as well. How can the party claim to care about working Americans while taking money from a billionaire that does not fulfill his promises to his employees?”

[End]

How, indeed? I’ll tell you how: Because it’s the Democrat Party, and its toadies in the corrupt news media outside of Politico will just ignore the story.

Thus, you have a dude worth $62 billion before the financial meltdown stiffing hundreds of campaign workers who will now go file for unemployment. You also have a scam that would be a major scandal if any Republican attempted to pull it off going essentially unremarked by the “public watchdogs” in the corrupt news media

No Surprise Here: DNC/CNN Rig Debate Format for Quid Pro Joe

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

The old geezers get to sit now. – Catering to every whim of their chosen candidate, the DNC and CNN announced on Sunday that tired, obviously declining Quid Pro Joe Biden will get his wish for the next Democrat debate later this week. He and his fellow, much healthier septuagenarian, Bernie Sanders, will be seated at a table with the moderators.

The debate, which oddly takes place on Sunday night, will present a radically changed format from previous debates at which all the candidates stood at podiums for two hours. For the remaining “hey you kids, get off my lawn!” brigade of candidates, doing that became a test of endurance that Sanders was perfectly willing to continue but Biden was obviously anxious to end.

From a report by Politico on the matter:

Bernie Sanders wants to stand up at the next debate — and his campaign is accusing Joe Biden of wanting to sit down.

After a private call Friday with CNN, which is moderating the March 15 debate with the Democratic National Committee, Sanders’ team balked at a new proposed format for debate, saying it gives his opponent Biden too much of a break in their first one-on-one face-off. Biden’s camp denied that it was pressing for a sit-down debate.

“Why does Joe Biden not want to stand toe-to-toe with Sen. Sanders on the debate stage March 15 and have an opportunity to defend his record and articulate his vision for the future?” asked Jeff Weaver, Sanders’ senior adviser.

Biden’s campaign and the DNC said the format for the debate was decided by the party and CNN. The news network declined to comment and referred questions to the DNC.

“We will participate in whatever debate CNN chooses to stage: standing, sitting, at podiums, or in a town hall,” Biden’s deputy campaign manager Kate Bedingfield said. “The problem for the Sanders campaign is not the staging of the debate, but rather, the weakness of Sen. Sanders’ record and ideas.”

There’s no secret what’s happening here: The standing format had Biden visibly tiring towards the end of the last debate. During the last 40 minutes or so, he repeatedly lashed out at the moderators and fellow candidates, and struggled to form sentences. There is a reason why his standard campaign stump speech, during which he roams around a stage before a tiny audience, lasts no more than 15 minutes.

Also catering to Biden’s needs, the setting will be similar to one of his campaign events, with a stage surrounded by a Biden-like small audience. Even better for Biden, the format will include questions from the attendees, which in Democrat debates tend to consist mainly of sophomoric iterations of “how much of other people’s money are you planning to give to me and my family after you’re elected?” or “how many trillions of our grandchildren’s dollars are you willing to throw away on AOC’s climate change pipe dreams?”

Including audience questions helps to break up the normal flow of a debate, and allows Biden to avoid a lot of head-to-head exchanges of ideas with The Commie and just talk about all the mythical things he did during the “Obiden/Bama” administration, as he called it on Saturday.

Changing the qualification rules in order to exclude Tulsi Gabbard – the only remaining woman/minority candidate in the race – from this debate also works in Biden’s favor. Gabbard is no friend of the Party’s ruling class, and already effectively killed the candidacy of Kamala Harris in a debate last fall. Eliminating her helps to clear the minefield for Creepy Uncle Joe.

Thus, we see the DNC and its toadies at CNN taking no chances with their plan to literally carry the nation’s Unfrozen Caveman Senator across the finish line to the party’s nomination. With primaries in the delegate-rich states of Florida, Illinois, Ohio and Arizona taking place just two days later, a big Biden breakdown on-stage in this debate could shift the race right back in The Commie’s favor. Having Quid Pro Joe comfortably seated at a table significantly reduces the prospects for disaster.

With polling data now trending strongly in his favor, Biden now has a clearly achievable path to being able to win the nomination on the first ballot in Milwaukee. Somewhere, President Donald Trump is celebrating.

That is all.

Democrat War On Women: DNC Rigs Rules to Exclude Tulsi Gabbard From Next Debate

The Evening Campaign Update (Because the Campaign Never Ends)

Only septuagenarian white male geezers need apply. – Today the DNC announced new qualification rules for its next debate. Conveniently for the Party’s establishment, the new rule – there’s only one now – works to exclude Tulsi Gabbard from the stage.

From The Hill’s report:

The Democratic National Committee (DNC) on Friday announced new qualifying standards for the upcoming Arizona debate that will leave only the top two contenders on stage.

Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-Hawaii) did not meet the single qualifying factor: earning at least 20 percent of the delegates awarded as of March 15.

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) and former Vice President Joe Biden are the only candidates who have qualified for the debate, which will be hosted by CNN and Univision on March 15 in Phoenix.

Gabbard has two of the 1,385 delegates awarded. Those delegates are from American Samoa, which former New York City Mayor Mike Bloomberg won on Super Tuesday before dropping out and endorsing Biden.

Six states are set to vote on Tuesday, including Michigan, the biggest electoral prize of the night. It is highly unlikely Gabbard will meet the 20 percent delegate threshold after Tuesday’s elections.

Thus, while the corrupt news media and leading Democrats like Nancy Pelosi lament the fact that it appears certain that no woman will win the presidency this year, their Party works to ensure its lone remaining female – and minority – candidate in the race will not even have the opportunity to debate the Geezer Brigade on national television.

That, friends, is today’s Democrat Party in a nutshell.

Democrat Panic: Brazile tells McDaniel to “Go to hell!”

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

Fox News really needs to reconsider who it puts on its air. – Illustrating the state of abject panic among the Democrat Party poobahs, former DNC Chair and current Fox News paid contributor Donna Brazile told current RNC Chair Ronna Romney McDaniel to “go to hell” live on air this morning:

After telling McDaniel to “stay the hell out of our race!” repeatedly, Brazile then outright told the devout Mormon to “go to hell” not once, but twice. Brazile then resorted to the despicably tiresome canard that any criticism of the DNC process by non-Democrats amounts to the use of “Russian talkin’ points!” because of course she did.

*sigh*

Brazile’s unhinged outburst at McDaniel only serves to further demonstrate the state of outright panic the leaders of the Democrat Party find themselves today, as voters go to the polls in the crucial Super Tuesday primary contests. With 40% of the total convention delegates up for grabs in 14 states, Democrat system riggers like Brazile are sitting on pins and needles in anticipation of polls closing this evening.

Regarding Brazile’s absurd claims that nobody in the Democrat Party is attempting to rig things against Bernie Sanders: Remember that Brazile played a significant role in rigging the process against The Commie in 2016, even to the point of feeding debate questions to the Pantsuit Princess in advance. She is a longtime tool of the Clintons whose word cannot be trusted in any way, shape or form.

For Fox News management, today’s outburst by Brazile should create internal discussions over whether or not to continue with her contributor deal. There is no question whatsoever that any Republican who engaged in the use of similarly aggressive language towards any Democrat would be immediately banned by CNN or MSNBC.

There is no reason why Fox News should hold itself and its contributors to lower standards than those two slipshod outfits.

P.S.: Just last Thursday, Sean Hannity gave Brazile a full hour on his “tick-tock” radio show to expound on what a wonderful Christian she claims to be. If you’re a real Christian, the words “go to hell” should never be in your heart or come out of your mouth towards anyone.

What a day.

Harvey Weinstein Now Locked in a New York Prison – Just Like Jeffrey Epstein

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

Is it time to start the new #WeinsteinDidntKillHimself hashtag yet? – With Harvey Weinstein now headed off to prison on Rikers Island in New York City and holding so many deep, dark secrets about powerful Democrats and Hollywood figures in his creepy head, the countdown on how many days will pass before he suffers some form of highly-suspicious death has begun. Who knows? Maybe he will “Epstein” himself soon, or be the only person in a very crowded prison to somehow contract the Coronavirus. That would be, like, totally believable.

Weinstein is a man who was a huge Democrat fundraiser and donor for a quarter century that spanned the duration of the Clinton and Obama presidencies. The beneficiaries of his largess include the Fainting Felon, Barack Hussein Obama His Own Self, John Kerry, Al Franken, Cory Booker, Al Gore, Bill Clinton, the Clinton Foundation, the Democrat National Committee, and as mentioned in yesterday’s Evening Update, Michael Bloomberg.

Over that quarter century, Weinstein hob-nobbed with all of these people, took trips with many of them, organized massive Hollywood fundraisers for them, held parties in their honor, and even, in the case of the Obamas, hired their 16-year-old daughters as interns. This is a guy who knows where all the Democrat bodies are buried, including Seth Rich’s and Jeffrey Epstein’s in all likelihood.

The frequency with which people in Weinstein’s bulbous shoes end up dying in highly-mysterious circumstances has become such a visible national phenomenon that we now have national figures semi-joking about it. As an example, former Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich, recently pardoned by President Donald Trump, issued this nervous tweet last night:

To be clear, Blago is one of the rare people who find themselves in his particular circumstance whose obvious concerns are not directed at anyone named Clinton. Remember, Blagojevich is the guy who went to prison for actively seeking bribes in the selling of the U.S. Senate seat being vacated in 2007 by one Barack Obama. And here’s the deal: The record appears to indicate that Obama was himself involved in that operation.

So, yeah, if Blago goes bye bye, we do all know who’s behind it. It’s just that nobody wants to say it out loud. So many people who possess inconvenient knowledge about Democrat Party heroes have died under suspicious circumstances over the last 30 years that it has long gone past the joking point.

Take a look at the current case of one Phillip Haney, a high-ranking DHS official during the Obama years who decided to turn whistleblower over what he said was the Obama Administration’s systematic efforts to cover up the infiltration of DHS and other federal agencies by radical Islamists.

Haney was found shot and killed in a park and ride lot in Amador County, California last Saturday. The pistol from which the fatal shot had been fired was discovered next to his body. The Amador County Coroner’s office quickly knee-jerked to a finding of “suicide” in Haney’s death, despite the fact that he had recently told friends that he was concerned that someone was trying to kill him.

Yesterday, the Coroner – who works for the Amador County Sheriff’s office – issued a second statement claiming that no finding of suicide had ever been issued, and that its investigation into the killing was still ongoing.

But here’s a copy of the original finding, which clearly states that the gunshot was “self-inflicted”:

Typically in English-speaking societies – which the U.S. still largely is despite the best efforts of the Democrat Party – the term “self-inflicted” as related to a fatal wound means the subject committed suicide. Either that, or perhaps the Amador County Sheriff’s Department is about to claim Haney accidentally killed himself while cleaning his gun as he waited for a bus in a park and ride parking lot.

Maybe it’s all just innocent confusion out there in Amador County, California. Hell, it probably is.

The problem, though, is that the Democrats in general and the Clintons in particular, have been surrounded for so many years by so many inconvenient people who conveniently died under highly suspicious circumstances that the accumulation of events long ago stretched far past the point of credulity. It’s happened so many times related to the Clinton that “Arkancide” has become a popular term in American culture.

It’s all very much like the Kennedy Assassination: In order to believe the official version that Lee Harvey Oswald acted alone in the killing of the President that day, one has to ignore literally hundreds upon hundreds of odd coincidences, witness statements, known associations, contradictory forensic evidence and dozens of outright admissions by people claiming to have been participants.

So, call me a conspiracy theorist if you like, but at some point the weight of accumulated evidence simply overwhelms the official narrative. That’s where the Clintons, Obamas, and the DNC have arrived with all of these instances of inconvenient people dying very convenient – and suspicious – deaths.

Harvey Weinstein’s lawyers appeared on “The Story” with Martha Macallum last night, and expressed their concerns about how their client’s “health” might be affected while in prison. They have every reason to be very, very concerned.

#WeinsteinDidntKillHimself. Might as well get it started now.

It’s a Sanders/Bloomberg Race Now: Either way, the Democrats Lose

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

As the campaign of Quid Pro Joe Biden collapses under the weight of its own rank dishonesty and a candidate who is clearly impaired, the high muckety-mucks of the Democrat Party and its big money donors are now going all-in on Mini-Mike Bloomberg. They all know that the nomination this July in Milwaukee of The Commie, Bernie Sanders, would spell certain doom for their party in November, as The Commie would not only lose the presidential contest to President Donald Trump, but also ensure massive losses in both houses of congress.

This dynamic is, in part, why you saw Bloomberg launch his “I’m thinking of picking the Pantsuit Princess as my running mate” trial balloon over the weekend. Mr. Excitement and the party leaders want to gauge Democrat voter reaction, hoping against hope that a Bloomberg/Coughing Crook ticket might mollify The Commie’s gang of leftist lunatic supporters and possibly unify the party for the general election.

Hah. Fat chance.

See, these people know they have a gigantic problem on their hands: As things stand today, it is almost inevitable that their convention will produce a nominee who will divide the party’s voter base. The collapse of Biden, the fast fade of Fauxcahontas and the simple non-viability of Preacher Pete for a variety of reasons means that their nominating contest has now boiled down to a contest between a lifelong communist who doesn’t even call himself a Democrat and a former Republican, a billionaire who only bothered to register as a Democrat a few years ago.

It is a contest between a Commie who is raising tens of millions of campaign dollars mainly from small contributions by tens of thousands of leftists nutjobs and an outright oligarch who is attempting to perform a very public leveraged buyout of the entire Democrat Party. Folks, this is not just a contest between liberals and moderates, as your corrupt news media attempts to portray it, it is a contest between two diametrically-opposed world views, all taking place under a single political party’s tent.

How do you unify that? You don’t.

Before we go any further, take a look at this set of projections produced by Nate Silver and 538.com:

Whose name is conspicuously missing from those results? That’s right: No Mini-Mike. The oligarch who has already dumped over $300 million of his own personal fortune into this race is not, according to 538.com, currently the favorite to win a single state on Super Tuesday, the date on which he has supposedly staked his entire effort. Not one. Damn. State.

Making matters even more perilous for those hoping to prevent a full Commie takeover of a Party in which he is not even a member, Mini-Mike is having a hard time getting his polling numbers up to the 15% threshold in those Super Tuesday states that would allow him to start actually being awarded some delegates. He’s getting close in Texas, where his ads have been ubiquitous for three months now, but is mired in the low single digits in California polls taken thus far.

Meanwhile, The Commie continues to surge in the polls, now having moved past Biden even in one South Carolina poll, ending thoughts of Quid Pro Joe’s unassailable firewall in that state.

The reality is that The Commie has all the momentum in this race and that TV and social media advertising can only take you so far, regardless of how many millions you pour into it. At some point, constant TV ads become so annoying that people tune them out and, if the ads continue, become openly hostile to them.

Once Super Tuesday has come and gone, 40% of the delegates in this race will have been awarded, and The Commie will have more of them than anyone else. Biden will end his disastrous campaign, as will Lieawatha. Klobuchar will hang on for awhile longer, but will ultimately run out of money and have to quit the race, probably before the end of March. Buttigieg will take his boutique vanity campaign all the way to the convention, as he will be the only other candidate who will be able to continue to raise enough money to mount a semi-credible effort.

Thus, the nominating contest for the “party of diversity” will boil down to a battle of attrition between three pasty-faced white guys – because of course it will – two of whom aren’t really even Democrats, the third of whom has never held any office higher than mayor of a mid-size college town in Indiana.

The big problem there for the Party is that all three men have very limited ceilings governing their appeal to voters, and the proportional awarding of delegates in these primaries will ensure than none of them will be able to go into the convention having won the majority of delegates needed to prevail on the first ballot. As things stand today, that almost certainly means that Sanders, who will enter the convention having won the most delegates, will see the nomination taken from him on a second ballot in which all the Party’s “Super Delegates” will be able to vote.

And if you think the violence-prone Sanders support base is going to quietly accept that outcome and unify around an oligarch and his Grasping Grifter running mate, boy, do you have another think coming. Milwaukee will become riot central in such a scenario and the Democrat Party will become unalterably divided.

Sanders himself will most likely just end up being bought off again like he was in 2016 – although the price will be higher this time – so no one should count on a third-party effort with him in the lead. But 40% of the Party’s current voter base will be forever disillusioned, and a good portion of them will become permanently disaffected after seeing the nomination once again stolen from their hero.

For Democrat Party leaders and funders, the only currently-viable scenario even worse than that would be for The Commie to get real momentum at his back and win the nomination outright. That would not only result in massive landslide losses in November, but the end of the Party as they have known it. The Democrat Party would, in that scenario. become America’s version of the British Labor Party, a loud collection of preening radical nincompoops who seldom manage to obtain any lever of actual power.

This is where the Democrats are as of today. If you can see any way out for them, let me know.

Mini-Mike Sends up an Ominous Trial Balloon

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

Michael Bloomberg sent up a trial balloon on Saturday that should have us all very, very concerned. Mini-Mike had one or more of his lieutenants tell the Drudge Report that he is interested in picking the Pantsuit Princess to be his running mate should he win the Democrat Party’s presidential nomination. This is a very ominous sign that the entire Democrat Party is still working to install the most corrupt politician in American history in the nation’s highest office.

Regular readers here will know that I don’t believe Mr. Bloomberg is really interested in serving four years as President. The man is 78 years old, would be 79 a few weeks following his theoretical inauguration, and appears to have all the energy of the average tree sloth.

What he does have, though, is dollars – billions upon billions of dollars. Meanwhile, the Democrat National Committee is flat, dead broke. Its fundraising flat-lined over the last three years and it is deeply in debt, negating its ability to pour money into the campaigns of vulnerable Democrats in house and senate races.

Bloomberg hates Donald Trump from way back, and agreed to a plan to step in to fill the funding void left by the DNC’s absence of money. The most cost-effective way for Mini-Mike to do that is to declare himself a candidate and run hundreds of millions of dollars of anti-Trump TV and social media ads. Being a “candidate” allows him to qualify for preferential ad rates offered by the media to politicians, and allows him to pour as much of his personal fortune as he wants to without restrictions that apply to contributions to political parties or PACs.

Don’t get me wrong: Bloomberg wants to win the election, and he has deployed his billions to build out what is becoming a massive political operation that is going to allow him to buy an awful lot of votes on Super Tuesday, out of which he will almost certainly emerge as the only legitimate challenger to a takeover of the Democrat Party by The Commie, Bernie Sanders. But he just doesn’t have any intention of serving out a term in office.

Bloomberg has long been tied in with the Clintons and their despicable friends like Harvey Weinstein and Jeffrey Epstein, and has obvious reasons to want to ensure that President Trump does not win a second term in office. He has also profited immensely from globalism and all the unbalanced trade agreements that Trump is in the process of ending, and thus has a compelling personal financial interest in helping to execute a return to the old world order.

What better way to do that than to serve as the stalking horse for the Coughing Crook? Pick her as a running mate, win the November election, get sworn in and shortly thereafter develop some “health reason” for resigning. Suddenly, you have executed the Democrat Party’s four-year effort to reverse the results of the 2016 election and ensured the quick death of the American Republic.

So, the “leak” to the Drudge Report was likely just Bloomberg and the Democrats testing the waters to gauge the reaction by the pundits and the public. This first step will allow them to poll and focus group test new messages designed to build acceptance for such a ticket in the public’s collective mind.

You can expect both the Bloomberg camp and the Fainting Felon to start rolling those messages out in the days and weeks to come.

Just in case you don’t believe that The Commie is the clear front-runner in the Democrat race now, look at the results of the new YouGov poll:

Image may contain: 2 people

If The Commie can find ways to win both Nevada (likely) and South Carolina (where only a rapidly-fading Quid Pro Joe might be able to prevail) over the next two weeks, Mini-Mike may not be able to head him off. Waiting until Super Tuesday to get into the race was always a risky strategic move by Mini-Mike. As things stand right now, with Sanders also leading big in California and surging in several of the other Super Tuesday states, it may turn out to have been too late.

Fun.

That is all.
