The Democrat/Media Propaganda Complex Moves the Goal Posts in the Wake of Mueller’s Failed Coup

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

The talkin’ points, they are a-changin’… – Ok, so here’s the drill: Now that Robert Mueller has failed to carry out the coup d’etat that the Democrats and the entirety of our fake news media have hoped and dreamed of for two solid years now, the goal posts have shifted.

Now, Robert Mueller is a bad guy, a guy who both Bug-eyed Adam Schiff and Jabba The Nadler have promised to subpoena to appear before their own committees, which will now lead the Witch Hunt into the future at the behest of San Fran Nan and the editorial boards at the New York Times and Washington Post. Furthermore, the Attorney General of the United States – William Barr – and his Deputy Attorney General, Rod Rosenstein, are now the two newest subjects to be portrayed as Russian agents by our fake news media. A regular Boris Badenov and Natasha Fatale (all you Millennials will have to Google that reference), these two.

That nasty odor you found wafting from your television screens anytime you were tuned into MSNBC or CNN this weekend was a combination of sulphur and desperation. These people are literally doing the devil’s work against our nation’s survival, and their rising panic level came across the tube in spades as the weekend progressed, peaking on Sunday afternoon with the realization that Bob Mueller, the man on whom they had counted to be their collective savior, turned out to be not quite up to the job.

So the talking points had to shift, the goal posts must now move, and they all, acting almost as a single evil organism (I smell a remake of “The Blob” coming soon), latched onto the insignificant fact that Mueller did not outright “clear” President Donald Trump of “obstruction of justice” as their next thin lifeline. Since Mueller did not “clear” Trump, but the Attorney General and Deputy Attorney General (a Trump hater who we now know without any doubt at all literally attempted to frame the President) did, why, they must be acting on behalf of PUTIN!!!!!!

See the logic? No? Ok, neither do I.

Look, these are Democrats and Democrat media activists we’re talking about here – logic has no place in anything they do. If these people were vampires (and how can we really be sure that Brian Stelter and Katie Tur aren’t?), logic would be their garlic and truth their sunlight.

But, just for the sake of argument, the glaring problems with their new line of talking points are obvious:

  • Robert Mueller was acting as a prosecutor. Prosecutors do not “clear” people – they either find evidence of wrongdoing that would support a prosecution, or they do not. Mueller did not.
  • The entire case for “obstruction” against President Trump originates with a presumption that he fired bad cop James Comey – an action even Rosenstein supported, and which every Democrat in Washington had called for – in order to prevent Comey from investigating Trump’s “collusion” with Putin.
  • But Mueller found zero evidence that any such “collusion” took place – said so right there in his report.
  • So, how in the hell would anyone “obstruct justice” by trying to cover up a crime that, by the prosecutor’s own admission, DID NOT HAPPEN?

Thus, the lack of any evidence of obstruction is not a mere opinion expressed by Barr and Rosenstein, it is a metaphysical fact.  Period. Hard stop.

Let’s just close with film of the celebration in the White House last night…

 

 

That is all. For now.

The Week in Review: Mueller Delivers a Dud, Democrat Hopes Deflate

The Campaign Update Week in Review
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

The Week in Review, courtesy of the @GDBlackmon Twitter Feed…

The week began with the @GOP celebrating St. Patrick’s Day in the most appropriate means possible, with a meme featuring the mug shot of everyone’s favorite El Paso Irishman. Things only got funnier and better from there, believe it or not.:

Rob Christie posts some of the funniest short videos on the Twitter platform. I thought this one was totes awesome.:

After more proof of John McCain’s mendacity in the spreading of the fake Trump Dossier emerged, Donald Trump was being criticized for lashing out at the dead Senator. Not surprisingly, I thought the President’s outrage was completely justified.:

Meanwhile, our next future president from Texas was hilariously lamenting NYU’s hiring of yet another radical leftist activist onto its faculty, which now rivals Harvard’s as the last American bastion of Soviet-style Marxism.:

Is anyone surprised that Dan Rather, the literal inventor of #fakenews, now turns up regularly as a contributor on CNN?:

On Monday, we learned that Fox News had hired Clinton toady Donna Brazile on as a paid contributor. Lanny Davis and Paul Begala were already tied up by CNN, so…:

The very entertaining Larry Schweikart noted a poll that turned out to be a bit of foreshadowing…:

Speaking of foreshadowing, James Woods hits this nail right square on the head.:

Things are not looking up for the presidential aspirations of Mayor Meatless Mondays…:

What do they put in the drinking water up there in the Bronx?:

This is 100% true and cannot be repeated often enough.:

Fauxcahontas was down in Mississippi interfering in another state’s business. Because of course she was.:

This guy should avoid trying to debate the merits of the Electoral College with the great Nick Searcy.:

If this bit of news about Irish Bob surprises you, you haven’t been paying attention. After all, later in the week we found out he fed his child’s poop to his wife as a practical joke. I’m thinking she probably was not amused.:

I’m pretty sure the TSA agent in this disgusting video is Joe Biden in a fat suit.:

Speaking of guys in a fat suit, I give you Kellyanne Conway’s husband, George. Oh, wait, that’s not a fat suit at all, is it?:

This was the only proper culmination for Nick Cage’s amazing career. He should announce his retirement immediately after the movie premieres.”

I’m not a fan of #NeverTrump nitwit Bill Kristol. Can you tell?:

Larry Schweikart does a great job of keeping up with special election results around the country. The Democrats’ rapid lurch to the far, far, far, lunatic left is creating a mini-wave for the GOP this year.:

We interrupt our politics to bring you wonderful news from America’s oil and gas industry.:

I’m not sure either of them is actually sentient.:

George Orwell was a London citizen when he wrote his famous book, “1984”. In today’s London, Orwell’s book would be banned as hate speech and he’d be tossed in prison for writing it.:

Irish Bob O’Rourke isn’t the only political loser who Democrats are obsessed with these days. Stacey Abrams is giving him a strong run for his money.:

Every once in awhile, the #fakenews hacks at Politico get something right.:

It seems like every week along about Thursday I get real tired of Jim Acosta’s crap. This week was no different.:

If you see some guy in a sheep suit seated at the Pai Gow table, eating dirt, that’s Irish Bob.:

When Greg Budell asked a very good question about the lack of coverage in the U.S. news media about America’s final defeat of ISIS, I had the right answer.:

You seriously cannot make these fake news people up.:

This cracked me up.:

As perhaps the world’s most avid fan of the film “Three Amigos” – which is the funniest script ever written – I have to give @Solmemes1 the award for greatest Twitter meme ever.:

Communists are so predictable.:

This bit of economic winning went largely unreported by our fake news media, but is a very key leading indicator of good things to come.:

Sorry. I just couldn’t resist.:

It’s true. And I won.:

Well, that was totally unexpected! said no one anywhere.:

Shameless self-promotion alert! – Robert Mueller sent his final report over to AG William Barr at 5:00 on Friday evening. 37 minutes later, I posted this sage analysis about what to expect next.:

Oh, it’s a joke, all right. A walking, talking, unshaven buffoon of a joke.:

This said it all about @BillKristol.:

This said it all as well.:

When will everyone wake up to the reality that most of these people are in fact themselves child molesters?:

MSNBC’s resident conspiracy theorist Rachel Maddow literally wept on live TV when she learned Mueller had found no evidence supporting the “Russia Collusion” fantasy she has promoted for the last two years.:

Well, they were never to be trusted before, either, so…:

Over at CNN, Brian Stelter was highly disappointed.:

The great James Woods offered the perfect capper to a wonderful week.:

The Witch Hunt is Dead! Long Live the Witch Hunt!

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

The Witch Hunt is dead! Long live the Witch Hunt! – In case you are wondering why every Democrat from Hawaii to Maine is screaming for Attorney General William Barr to “release the full, unredacted Mueller Report!”, it’s because they know that will never happen.

They know that Mueller’s report – assuming it is a fullsome narrative and not just the listing of indictments, prosecutions and deferrals required by the governing statute – will certainly be chock-full of classified information and other passages that the FBI and intelligence agencies will want to redact under their handy “sources and methods” rubrick.  They also know that AG Barr is an old pro, a guy who is going to play this situation strictly by the book, which likely means he is going to compile his own summary report that fully eliminates such concerns and release that to congress and the public instead.

Thus, their cynical and unfillable demand for the “full, unredacted report” will then be transformed into claims that Barr, the disciple of George H.W. Bush who most of them were praising just a few months ago, is now just a Trump toadie who is engaged in a coverup, claims that the Democrats plan to keep pounding right on through Election Day, 2020.

This claim of coverup will become a major part of the Democrat justification for mounting their own Witch Hunts that will consume most of the time over the next 18 months of at least three House committees:  Judiciary, Intelligence and Oversight. Party leaders feel they have no choice but to keep all of this anti-American nonsense alive in order for one of their array of freaks, miscreants, commies and outright nutjobs to have any chance of defeating President Donald Trump at the ballot box next year.

So, if you are frustrated that the Democrats who have spent the last 20 months guaranteeing us that Gestapo Chief, er, “Special Counsel” Mueller has “got the goods” on the President and several members of his family now refuse to accept Mueller’s finding that there was no “Russia Collusion” or “obstruction of justice” and allow our country to return to some sense of normalcy, well, this is why. Yes, it is demented; yes, it is depraved; yes, it is utterly despicable and un-American behavior, but hey, this is the Democrats we are talking about here.

What did you expect?

So, let’s review the Mueller Witch Hunt from a statistical perspective:

  • Money spent – well in excess of $30 million
  • Number of days – 675
  • Number of indictments – 34
  • Number of indictments against Americans – 8
  • Number of indictments against Russian ham sandwiches Mueller knows will never come to this country to stand trial – 25
  • Number of indictments against Concorde Management, whose trial Mueller continues to desperately postpone because he has a big bag of nothing against them – 1

MOST IMPORTANTLY…

  • Number of indictments related to “Collusion” or “Obstruction” – ZERO, ZIP, ZILCH, NADA

And what of our fake news media, this collection of propagandists for the Democrat Party who spent 20 months coordinating their messaging with the DNC on this matter, promoting the “Russia Collusion” fantasy like Nabisco promotes Vanilla Wafers?

In case you missed it, MSNBC’s resident conspiracy theorist, Rachel Maddow, was so upset by Mueller’s “no collusion” conclusion that she literally wept on national television last night:

Isn’t that glorious?

You can be sure that there was plenty of weeping going on behind the scenes over at CNN and the New York Times and the Washington Post and ABC, NBC, CBS as well, as all the fake-newsers saw their vaunted Ship of Mueller run aground on the sharp shoals of reality. But will there be any accountability for these people, even the slightest, meekest admissions of their abject, overwhelming wrong-ness for the last 20 months?

Oh, hell no. Of course not. Nobody at any of our major media organizations maintains the slightest concern about getting anything right anymore – they just care about getting Trump. So all we will see out of these despicable hacks – the ones who don’t break down in tears on live TV, anyway – will be a change in talking points to make it seem like they had predicted this outcome from Mueller’s operation all along, and that the “real action” is over in congress and the Southern District of New York U.S. Attorney’s office.

And remember: The reason they will do this is because… wait for it…THAT’S WHAT THEIR DEMOCRAT MASTERS TELL THEM TO DO.

Once you realize and accept that, it all makes perfect sense.

That is all.

The Final 5:00 Friday Document Dump by Robert Mueller Has Arrived

The Evening Campaign Update
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

The “Mueller Report” – whatever that even means – was delivered to Attorney General William Barr today. 

As has been his habit, Mueller took this latest major step in his Witch Hunt late on a Friday to ensure it will dominate the conversation on all the Sunday morning TV talk shows. That’s really all you need to know about whether or not this entire process is a politically-motivated sham. It is.

So, what next? Nobody really knows. It’s likely that right now, AG Barr doesn’t even know what he will be doing with this report, if anything.

By law, the matter is solely in his hands now. Yes, the House of Representatives unanimously passed a meaningless resolution demanding that Barr release the report in its entirety to the public. But that ain’t gonna happen under any circumstances.

Why? Because the report is very likely chock full of classified information and other passages that DOJ and the FBI and other intel agencies will want to heavily redact.

The only thing Barr is required by law to deliver to congress is a cataloging of the indictments and prosecutions conducted by Mueller and his team of Obama/Clinton hacks, along with a listing of “declinations”, i.e., individuals or other entities they decided not to pursue.

That’s it. Frankly, it’s more than congress deserves in this instance.

Indeed, it is entirely possible that that is all that is in Mueller’s actual report – he is under no legal requirement to provide anything more than that to Mr. Barr.

Barr could quickly issue some kind of statement to the press in which he summarizes the report’s content to inform the public whether or not Mueller claims to have found any wrongdoing on the part of President Trump. It seems likely that Barr would want to do that, assuming Mueller’s report contains any such claims.

Leftist pundits have been warning for weeks that their disciples should not expect to get much satisfaction out of Mueller’s report, despite the 20 months shameless, irresponsible speculation that he somehow “had the goods” on the President and/or members of his family.

My guess? Barr will issue some sort of statement before Monday, and we will see tons of #fakenews stories in the New York Times and Washington Post making all sorts of unfounded insinuations based solely on unnamed “sources”.

Within a week, the full report will be leaked to one of those newspapers if it contains damaging accusations against President Trump. If it doesn’t, AG Barr will eventually either release a heavily-redacted version of the full report, or a fairly extensive summary of it that has been fully reviewed and signed-off on by the FBI, CIA and other intelligence agencies.

The next 48-72 hours will be very, very interesting.

That is all.

Joe Biden Continues the Democrat Obsession With Political Losers

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

The Democrat presidential nomination battle is already a three-ring circus, and the far left elements of the Democrat base are going to make sure it stays that way.

Yesterday, ex-Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper, who is struggling to gain a foothold in the race, found himself in trouble with the social justice warrior crowd when his effort to imply that a woman may well win the nominating contest fell flat with the humorless left.  The first mistake Hickenlooper made was accepting CNN’s invitation to get a little (very little, given CNN’s dwindling audience) free media by doing a televised town hall hosted by leftist activist Dana Bash on Wednesday night. The second mistake he made was to try to inject a little wit into any answer to any question, because he is trying to attract votes from the most witless element of our society.

When Bash asked him the standard question about whether or not he would name a woman as his running mate, Hickenlooper first said “Of course.” Had he just stopped right there and waited for the next question, he’d have been just fine. Unfortunately for Hickenlooper, he felt the need to expand. It all went downhill from there.

“But … I’ll ask you another question,” Hickenlooper said, “How come we’re not asking, more often, the women, ‘Would you be willing to put a man on the ticket?’”

Now, the ex-Governor’s intent there was to imply that, in this nominating race, it is entirely possible that a woman might win the nomination – his answer was a little back-handed jab at Bash for assuming a man is going to come out on top. With Sen. Kamala Harris currently running a strong third in the polls behind two pasty white guys who are older than the dirt Irish Bob O’Rourke eats for breakfast, and the Pantsuit Princess and Michelle Obama still lurking out there in the wings, it is certainly entirely possible the Democrat Party will once again have a female nominee in 2020.

But the leftist outrage mob has no sense of humor or understanding of this thing called “wit”, and is determined to be outraged. That determination meant that Hickenlooper’s remark was intended as a shot against women, not a compliment to them, as the outrage mob went berserk all over CNN, MSNBC and social media all day on Thursday.

The moral of this story? Understand your audience, Governor. Never try to inject wit into an answer when you’re seeking the votes of witless people. Just say “Of course”, accept the inevitable applause, and move on.

Speaking of moving on, the radical nutjobs at Moveon.org this week put out a demand to all of the Democrats running for the presidency to boycott this year’s meeting of the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) as an expression of their support for the wave of rank anti-Semitism that currently infests the American left. To no one’s surprise, at least eight of the candidates, eager to appeal to the growing Ilhan Omar faction of the demented Democrat voter base, have agreed to participate in the boycott.

Those agreeing to Moveon’s demand thus far include Kamala Harris, Irish Bob O’Rourke, The Commie, Fauxcahontas, Kirsten Gillibrand, Julian Castro, Pete Buttigieg, and Jay Inslee. No word yet from Hickenlooper, Biden, Amy Klobuchar, Andrew Yang or Cory Booker, but you can be sure they will all be under intense pressure today to follow their fellow spineless candidates over this anti-Semite cliff.

Then there’s Creepy Uncle Joe. The elderly, pasty-white guy from Delaware is anxious not to become the prime target of the mushrooming “we hate old white guys” faction of the party’s voter base. In the hopes of putting a beard on his blinding old white guy-ness, Biden is now floating a trial balloon in which he would promise to name failed Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams, who happens to be female and black, as his running mate.

So once again, this current Democrat obsession with political looooooooosers raises its curious head.  Nothing against Ms. Abrams, but she lost her race, lost it by more than 50,000 votes in fact, despite obviously benefiting from a pretty robust voter fraud operation and all the free media our fake news media could reasonably provide.

There are literally hundreds of successful, winning minority female politicians out there who Biden could have targeted for this trial balloon. For example, there’s Mad Maxine Waters, who for more than a year in 2017-18 was literally the demented face of the Democrat Party before the party’s leaders convinced her to tone things down. She’s won every election race she’s ever run – why not her?

Then there’s Texas congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee, who must be sitting around grumbling, “why not me?” Say what you will about Cong. Lee – and there are many, many things to be said about her – there is no denying that she has also been extremely successful in getting elected and repeatedly re-elected.

Speaking of winning Democrats who are making a real mark, there’s Cong. Ilhan Omar, who has now become the leading voice of anti-Semitism in America.  Why not her?

Or hey, how about a Hispanic 2018 gubernatorial candidate who actually won her race, like New Mexico’s Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham? Lord knows there are plenty of New Mexico citizens who would love to see her leave to run for Veep so they could get a do-over on that race.

But I digress.  The question here is why so much focus on Ms. Abrams, whose only actual experience in government is as a state representative who made no real mark in that role? Why was she chosen, out of all the possible candidates out there, to deliver the Democrat Party’s response to the State of the Union address? Why is this political loser considered to be such a rising influence within the Party?

Makes no sense to me.  But then, I’m not a Democrat.

Thank God.

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.

Joe Biden and Other Democrats Who Will Not be the 2020 Nominee

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

Some of these Democrats just missed their moments. Others never had a moment, and never will. – I’ve already talked about my belief  that Irish Bob O’Rourke missed his moment by dithering around for four months before announcing his candidacy, but let’s talk about two other Democrats who missed their moments by not running in 2016 against the Pantsuit Princess:  Elizabeth Warren and Cory Booker.

Had she run in the 2016 Democrat primaries, Senator Little Mouth Always Running might have been able to leverage herself in between The Commie and the Fainting Felon as the compromise candidate for the party’s voters. True, it would have been extremely hard overcoming the pernicious influence of the Clinton Machine, which conspired with the DNC to rig the nominating process, but having a third “legitimate” candidate in the race might have made that rigging harder to achieve.

Warren’s false claims of Native American heritage – which she undeniably used to secure a plum spot on the faculty at Harvard – had been revealed long before 2016 and would have become an issue in the nominating process, no question. But by sitting out that race, Warren has given President Donald Trump another two solid years to pound her fraudulent reality as a human being into the public consciousness.

Two years ago, the conventional wisdom was that Warren would immediately become the odd-on favorite to win the 2020 nomination as soon as she announced she was running.  Instead, she has foundered along in single-digits in the preference polls, and most likely will never move any higher because even Democrat voters now consider her to be a walking, always talking ethnic joke.

We’ve seen a similar thing happen to Senator Spartacus from New Jersey. He has long aspired to be seen as the next Barack Obama, and had he done the bold thing that Obama did in 2008 and jumped into the 2016 nominating process despite an incredibly thin record of public service, he might well have been able to legitimately pick up that mantle and seriously challenge the Coughing Crook for the nomination.

Maybe he would have caught fire then like Obama did or maybe he wouldn’t have, but by sitting that one out and waiting another four years, he, like Fauxcahontas, ended up just giving himself another four years to become a walking joke with a self-inflicted nickname. Booker’s problem isn’t that people just don’t know who he really is, like one idiot talking head said the other day, it’s the fact that people hear his name and snicker. He’s done, and might as well go home.

Joe Biden never had a moment and never will. Yes, he’s leading the Democrat polls right now, but let’s all remember that at this point in 2015, Jeb! was strongly leading the GOP polls, and he ended up throwing more than $150 million down a rat hole without winning a single primary or caucus before unceremoniously ending his campaign. The same thing is going to happen to Biden.

This is Biden’s third run at the nomination, and he has three major problems: He’s simply an unattractive candidate, he is a pasty-white man, and he is too damn old to hold the office. I’m sorry – I have nothing against elderly Americans and aspire to become one myself fairly soon – but the office of the presidency is incredibly demanding and Joe Biden is an elderly man. These realities will become more and more apparent to the increasingly-leftist, social-justice-warrior-oriented Democrat voter base in the coming months.

Then there’s New York Senator Kirsten Gillibrand – what in the hell is she even doing in this race? That’s the key question she must answer, and she simply has no means of answering it. In a race that already includes liberal senators like Kamala Harris, Spartacus, Fauxcahontas and Amy Klobuchar, why should Democrat voters pick Gillibrand out of that lineup? Gillibrand is currently polling at either 0% or 1%, depending on which poll you look at, and she most likely will never rise more than a point or two above that before getting out of the race.

Meanwhile, she’s humiliating herself with tweets like this one:

My goodness. The scent of desperation literally wafts up from the computer screen.

I’ll have a second post later today detailing the real rising dark horses in this campaign, and their names will definitely surprise you.

That is all.

AOC, Beto and John McCain Dominate the News, and Donald Trump Wins Again

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

There had to be some drug he did not do. Now we know. –Irish Bob O’Rourke swears he’s never used LSD. And a worried nation breathes a sigh of relief. The biggest problem with this denial seems to be that it robs him of any excuse whatsoever for dressing like a goat, complete with mask, while playing in his punk band. Plus, it could have helped to explain some of those hand and arm gyrations. Oh, well.

The Irishman from El Paso also swore that there is “nothing” in his past that has not already been revealed, which every sentient being who ever lived through their teenage and college years knows is a bald-faced lie, since we all have things in our past young lives that we take carefully to our graves. He also told the Washington Post that, during his “I gotta go find myself” journey through five states in early January, he ate dirt with “regenerative powers” in a small town in New Mexico, and found it so darn appetizing that he bought more to take home and feed to his family. Sounds like a CPS matter to me.

Finally, the intrepid over-cusser swears he is going to do his best to quit using the F-word so effin’ much, which would effin’ awesome if he can effin’ do it. I effin’ swear I don’t make this effin’ stuff up.

It’s not me, AOC, it’s you. – Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is worried about her flagging polling numbers, which in one poll shows her having just 37% approval in her own congressional district. But being the self-absorbed, childish nitwit that she is, she is convinced that it just cannot be her fault.

Thus, she took to Twitter yesterday (because of course she did) and placed all of the blame on the single most passe’ and predictable target possible, old, white men. Yes, friends, the favorite bogeyman of the radical left outside of fracking and global warming, er, cooling, er, “climate change” is now also to blame for the ongoing perils of AOC:

Now, as an older white guy, I would just love to think that I am partially responsible for this young, attractive, rooftop-dancing, talking-points parroting, aspiring circus clown’s problems, but that just isn’t the case. AOC’s many wounds are pretty much all of the self-inflicted variety, the inevitable outcome for a raging ignoramus who doesn’t know how or when to keep her mouth – or Twitter feed – shut or what in the world she’s saying anytime she is forced to stray from her carefully-prepared scripts.

But you keep on going, AOC – you’re the best entertainment in America outside of college football, and that only last 5 months a year.

I hate to speak ill of the dead, but hey, it’s John McCain. – President Donald Trump had this, in part, to say yesterday when discussing late Senator John McCain’s betrayal of America in his vindictive, decisive 2017 vote against repealing and replacing Obamacare:

All the talking heads at CNN and MSNBC exploded after hearing that, because of course they did. But as a reminder, Senator McCain made his firm promise to lead the charge in favor of repealing and replacing Obamacare the centerpiece of his 2016 campaign for re-election. Arizona’s voters sent him back to Washington for what would presumably be another 6-year term based on the belief he would keep his word.

But John McCain had a life-long problem with keeping his word to other Americans, and when push came to shove, he once again reneged on the firm promise he had made. That’s the truth about John McCain – it was his real nature as a human being. President Trump is 100% right about him.

That is all.

The Democrat Party is Waging a Generational War

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

Turns out, one outright commie in the race is enough, even for Democrats. – New York City Mayor Bill “Meatless Mondays” DeBlasio thinks he is cut out to be our president, oh, he really does. So, he ventured up to New Hampshire to test the waters there yesterday, and boy was that a bad idea.

DeBlasio was the lead “attraction” for an event billed as a panel discussion about healthcare.  But it appears that no one in the Granite State much cares about healthcare, or getting up close and personal with Bill DeBlasio.

In total, just 20 people turned out for the event, which is really bad, but that becomes purely awful when you realize that 14 of the 20 people were sitting on the panel, with just six hearty souls serving as the “audience” for the event. Upon learning of the sad turnout, White House Counselor Kellyanne Conway hilariously tweeted that “There are more people than this in my house every night for dinner.”  Oof.

These Democrat debates are going to be a hoot. – Don’t look now, but some guy you probably never heard of named Andrew Yang is the new Big Thing among the Millennial social media crowd that is always looking for a handout. Yang is…well, he’s uh…ummm…he’s a “tech entrepreneur,” which generally means he became fabulously wealthy creating some business that appeals to Millennials. Now, he’s basing a presidential campaign on the same concept, which in Democrat politics means that he’s proposing to give away a lot of money to Millennials.

So, a standard issue Democrat.

Yang has differentiated himself from the “forgive student loans,” “green new deal,” and “medicare for all” crowd by proposing something even more craven, what he calls a “Freedom Dividend” that simply gives $1,000 per month to … wait for it…EVERYBODY. Yes, that’s right: He’s just going to have the federal government write a check for a grand to 335 million Americans each month. For those interested in arithmetic, that comes to $335 billion each month, right at $4 TRILLION every year for a government that’s already running a trillion dollar budget deficit.

I swear I don’t make this stuff up.  Who could?

When asked how he would pay for this latest Democrat money grab, Yang offers only a false analogy with Alaska: “What they are doing with oil money in Alaska, we can do for all of us around the country with advancing technology.”

Well, here’s what they do in Alaska: The Alaska government decades ago dedicated part of the money it collects from taxes and royalties from the state’s massive oil production (second in the U.S. only to Texas) and distributes an annual dividend to the state’s small number of citizens from the balance. But this is not a budget-busting handout – Alaska is able to do this only because it runs a significant budget SURPLUS almost every year thanks to its oil and gas industry. Indeed, the state’s constitution requires the budget to be balanced each year, unlike the federal government.

The amount of this annual payment varies with the health of the oil industry, which determines how much the state is able to collect in taxes and royalties. During the depths of the oil price bust a few years ago, the state had to suspend the dividend for one year because paying it out would have thrown its budget into a deficit situation.

Being a standard-issue Democrat, Yang’s proposal makes no such consideration. Other than his vague reference to somehow funding it with “advancing technology” – an idiotic message intended purely to deceive idiots – Yang never even mentions funding it within some budgetary constraint.

Like the dimwit Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez with her “Green New Deal” and Bernie Sanders with his “Medicare for All”, Yang’s plan is to simply have the Federal Reserve print the money every month and hand it out to everyone. The inevitable result of such a program would be a rapid devaluation of the currency and massive inflation, meaning that all you Baby Boomers who spent the last several decades carefully saving money and planning a modest retirement based on the expectations of semi-responsible government and fairly stable economy can all go back to work, presumably as greeters at all the rapidly-disappearing Wal-Mart stores.

A word of warning: Amazon does not need nor hire greeters.

Make no mistake about this: What the Democrat Party is engaged in right now, today, is an organized, conscious, generational war that pits Millennials vs. the Baby Boom generation. That Party has in recent years made the conscious decision to toss organized labor overboard in favor of illegal aliens, and tossed Jews overboard in favor of Islamists, based on the calculation of which group might bring them more future votes. The Democrats right now are in the process of tossing Baby Boomers and even Gen-Xers over the side in favor a larger and younger future voting bloc.

This is just the latest example of the reality that the Democrat Party’s overriding motivation is not to do what is best for all Americans, but the acquisition and maintenance of political power.

Andrew Yang is just the latest manifestation of this intentional political strategy by the Democrats, and it’s working for him. His event in San Francisco last Friday drew a crowd of 3,000, which is 2,994 more than Bill DeBlasio could come up with in New Hampshire, and 1,000 more than Irish Bob O’Rourke could attract to his competing border rally with President Trump in El Paso last month. In the past month alone, the San Francisco Chronicle reports that Yang raised $350,000 from 66,000 donors, which is enough to qualify him to participate in the Democrats’ upcoming first debate in June.

That debate is going to be little more than a competition to see which candidate can promise to print and throw away the most money America does not have on issues that Millennials care about. Because the Democrat Party is waging a generational war here, and everyone over the age of 40 is the enemy.

Wake up, people – this is deadly serious stuff.

That is all.
