Democrats Don’t Need the Mob Anymore: Democrats ARE the Mob

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Tired of all this Winning yet? – New jobless claims fell by another 10,000 last week, as the economy approaches full employment.  New claims totaled 210,000 according to the Labor Department, the lowest level recorded in the U.S. since 1969.  This #Winning never, never, never, ever gets old.

Democrats in action. – Meanwhile, the social justice warriors at Kennesaw Mountain College in Georgia have banned the use of pretty much all the pronouns in the Webster’s Dictionary.  To replace them, the College introduced seven different lists of “gender-neutral” pronouns that students must use when addressing others.  The problem is, it is up to each individual to choose which of the 7 pronoun categories he or she…oops, there is no he or she anymore at KMC…’Ze’ or ‘Ve’ prefers.

The guide further hilariously notes that students “may change their pronouns without changing their name, appearance, or gender identity,” and suggests that preferred pronouns be re-confirmed regularly during “check-ins at meetings or in class.”  Folks, I was in an astronomy class at The University of Texas that had 120 students in it.  A pronoun “check-in” at the start of class would have consumed half of the class time.

“It can be tough to remember pronouns at first,” the guide helpfully points out.  True, but it’s probably easier than wasting time learning stuff like algebra, history and actual English.

More Democrats in action. – In Chicago, Democrat efforts to steal even more elections via mass voter fraud took another step forward with the issuance of what the sanctuary city’s leaders call the “CityID” card.  Matt Dietrich, spokesman for the Illinois State Board of Elections, said that the card “would be a legal form of ID for the board of elections to accept” when any resident attempts to register to vote.

But hey, don’t worry, Dietrich went on, “When you go to register to vote, you do check a box that attests to your citizenship.”  He also assured everyone that the same city officials who are currently actively violating  federal immigration law by enforcing the city’s “sanctuary” status will be policing the situation to make sure that people who knowingly entered the U.S. in violation of  our country’s immigration law don’t lie.  In 1960, John F. Kennedy needed Sam Giancana and the Chicago mob to steal Illinois.  Today, the Democrat Party is the mob, so no help necessary.

Still More Democrats in action. – Retiring Utah Senator Orrin Hatch, speaking at a meeting of the American Enterprise Institute, called the supporters of the Obamacare legislation in 2009-10 “the stupidest, dumbass people I’ve ever met.”  Well, yes.  They’re all Democrats.  Great to see the Senator finally getting to air his unfiltered thoughts during his waning days in office.

Speaking of Democrats in action, White House spokesman Sarah Huckabee Sanders told the assembled fake news reporters on Thursday that the Justice Department is conducting a review of the actions by Oakland Mayor Libby Schaff, who warned illegal immigrants in her city last Friday to head for the hills because ICE was about to conduct a roundup operation in the area.  This was clearly obstruction of justice, but Mayor Schaff, concerned about the prospect of spending time in the federal pokey, now claims she wasn’t advising anyone to take evasive action, oh no.  She just wanted them all to spend time studying and learning their rights while they sat meekly in their living rooms awaiting the arrival of ICE agents.  It’s an obvious lie – and if she says it to FBI agents, that’s also supposed to be a crime – but that’s what Democrats do.  It’s all they got.

As we all know, Hollywood is pretty much 100% infested with Democrats who just love to give themselves awards for all the award-worthy work they do in making the films they turn out, which, with very rare exceptions, range from horrifically awful to merely mediocre.  The biggest of the 3 dozen or so awards ceremonies, the Oscars, takes place this Sunday, and attendees always find a nice big gift bag sitting on their seat when they arrive.

In tribute to the fact that Hollywood has over the last 5 months been starkly revealed to be a seething cesspit of sexual abuse and depravity, Yahoo News reports that this year’s gift bags will contain ” a key-ring sized pepper spray, a gel pepper spray, two personal body alarms and a kit to test whether your drink has been drugged.”  If news reports are accurate, every woman and boy under the age of 18 will need to use every one of those items to protect them from registered Democrats before the night is over.

Just another day in Democrats are the mob America.

That is all.

It Was Congressional Apprentice Time in the Oval Office Conference Room

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Here’s how you become President for Life in China. – In an effort to crack down on critics of President Xi Jinping, China’s government has recently gone about banning all sorts of things, including:

  • Winnie the Pooh (because some have said Xi looks like the famous cartoon character);
  • The books “Animal Farm” and “1984” for obvious reasons; and
  • The letter “N”, for reasons no one is quite sure about.

Upon seeing this news, liberals all over America had as their first thought, “hey, we could ban the letter “G” so nobody could talk about guns, and the letters “T” and “C” so nobody could ever talk about cutting taxes ever again!”  Because that’ is how the liberal mind works.  Sure wish China would quit giving these people ideas.

Speaking of liberals, NBC News reports that the housing shortage in Berkeley and other parts of Northern California has become so severe and created rent and home prices so high that liberals are now fighting with fellow liberals on how to address the issue.  The ’60s-era hippies who created the problem in the first place by insisting on “slow growth” policies are in their 70s and 80s now.  They all have their personal beds made and don’t really see a problem at all.  But the younger, Millennial-age hipsters who staff all the Silicon Valley companies want cheaper housing and lower rents, and are pushing for faster growth policies.

This all creates a virtual sitcom-worthy situation of liberals hurling epithets at one another that is always a joy to read and invariably exhibits an extraordinary lack of self-awareness.  One 78 year-old hippie says this about the younger contingent:  “I think they are a combination of dumb and venal and maybe equal parts of both.”  Now, can there be any doubt at all that this woman said this while wearing a Bernie Sanders for President t-shirt and sipping a half-caf, decaf, mocha soy latte?

Meanwhile, a spokesman for the younger contingent fires back with things like “They are the masters of hypocritical progressivism,” no doubt while wearing a Che Guevara cap while sitting in the front seat of a brand new $120,000 Porsche, the payment on which is higher than his rent, but which is a necessary status symbol in the Silicon Valley crowd.  Awesome stuff.  If Bravo weren’t staffed exclusively by liberals who lack the ability to see the hilarity in this conflict, this would make a great reality TV show.  Hey, maybe HGTV could send me and my wife out to California to become the hosts of a new show called Flip or Flop, Berkeley!

All Hope is lost. – Well, White House Communications Director Hope Hicks is lost, anyway.  The fourth occupant of the most difficult job in America became the latest to announce her resignation on Wednesday, citing the standard desire to “seek other opportunities.”  In the corporate world, this phrase invariably means the person leaving was actually forced out of his or her job.  Given all the high praise coming Ms. Hicks’s way from President Trump and Chief of Staff John Kelly, they’re the most likely suspects for having done the forcing.

The fake news media, as it does anytime anyone resigns from the White House Staff, is of course portraying the resignation of the 29 year-old communications person as “the beginning of the end for Donald Trump.”  It’s like the 6,000th time we’ve heard that since April 2015, and we can only assume we will hear it 6,000 times more before President Trump is re-elected for a second term in November 2020.

Speaking of President Trump, the guy who every fake reporter in the fake news media keeps telling us wants to silence the press once again invited the press to stay and record every second of a major meeting in the Oval Office conference room on Wednesday.  Surrounded by congressional Democrats and Republicans most interested in the gun control debate, the President spent over an hour dominating a back and forth discussion what could and could not be included in a bipartisan bill on the issue, in a scene very reminiscent of an episode of The Apprentice.

Republicans in the meeting did not appreciate being put on the spot by the President on several issues, but hey, these are the same Republicans who have not done a damn thing in 4 months since the Las Vegas massacre about getting rid of bump stocks, despite the NRA’s endorsement for doing so.  So it’s kind of hard to have much sympathy for them.

The President, as he tends to do in such settings, indicated support for things he really won’t support at the end of the day – like Dianne Feinstein’s confiscatory bill banning half the guns sold in America today – but he did put people on the spot to get something done, which was the goal of the meeting.  In doing so, he also gave the fake news media a level of access that it never had from Barack Obama or any other modern president.  But, being the liberals that they all are, it is doubtful anyone in the fake news media has the sense of self-awareness needed to recognize that reality.

Just another day in Congressional Apprentice America.

How to Read Wednesday’s Trump Tweet About Jeff Sessions

The Evening Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Let’s dissect a tweet issued by President Trump earlier today.  Here it is:

Attorney General Sessions issued the following statement a bit later:

“We have initiated the appropriate process that will ensure complaints against this Department will be fully and fairly acted upon if necessary,” Mr. Sessions said in his statement. “As long as I am the Attorney General, I will continue to discharge my duties with integrity and honor, and this Department will continue to do its work in a fair and impartial manner according to the law and Constitution.”

So, sounds like the Attorney General is back in the President’s doghouse, and that he’s pretty irritated with being called out by Mr. Trump in that way, right?  On the surface, that’s exactly what it sounds like.

But let’s think about what lies beneath the surface in this situation.

First, why not use Justice Department lawyers to investigate the…well, the Justice Department?  After all, that’s who was abusing the FISA process, at least according to the findings published by the House Intelligence Committee and the Senate Judiciary Committee.  That would be sort of a conflict of interest, wouldn’t it?  Don’t you think the President, who spent 50 years in the business world, understands the concept of conflict of interest?  Of course he does.

Second, those DOJ lawyers have a pretty big investigation load going on already related to abuses during the Obama era.  Remember, over a 3-week period in December and January, AG Sessions announced his DOJ lawyers would be investigating Uranium One, the FBI’s sham investigation into Hillary Clinton’s email servers, the Clinton Foundation, and the Obama Administration’s refusal to prosecute members of the terrorist group Hezbollah in the interest of propping up its deal with Iran.  Don’t you think the President is aware of all of those ongoing investigations?  Of course he is.

Third, the IG is already investigating FBI and DOJ abuses in the investigation of the Clinton email scandal.  Oh, and by the way, the Hillary Clinton email scandal is directly linked to the FISA abuse scandal, given that both involve several of the same players at FBI, guys with names like Strzok, McCabe and Comey.  It is extremely likely that, during the course of his year-long investigation, IG Michael Horowitz has already been investigating the abuse of the FISA process – he could hardly help coming across evidence of wrongdoing in that case.  Don’t you think the President is aware of all of that?  Of course he is.

Fourth, yes, the IG does not have prosecutorial powers.  However, he does have the power to make criminal referrals to the Attorney General.  What is going to have more public credibility – indictments issued by the Republican DOJ attorneys working for a Republican AG, or indictments sought by the Republican AG on the advice of an IG who….

Fifth, yes IG Horowitz was appointed by Barack Hussein Obama, as the President conveniently reminds us in his tweet.

Sixth, while the fake news media and #neverTrump people who have been wrong about everything for the last three years always claim that the President just belches these things out on Twitter without giving them a moment’s thought, the truth is that we have found out repeatedly that there is pretty much always a method to his seeming madness; and

Seventh, there is this passage from the Sessions statement: “… this Department will continue to do its work in a fair and impartial manner according to the law and Constitution.”  What could be more fair and impartial and in accordance with the law than relying on an Obama appointee with a spotless reputation for fairness and impartiality to conduct these investigations?  And who, by the way, every Democrat talking head on TV will spend the next week defending, precisely because of the President’s exchange with his Attorney General today.

 

Let me speculate what the method behind this particular tweet and the AG’s response might be:

  • I expect we are about to see IG Horowitz issue his report on his 14 month investigation into the Clinton email scandal soon, as in no later than a week from now;
  • I expect we are going to discover that his 14-month investigation covered a lot more ground than just the email scandal, and will likely include findings related to Uranium One, the Clinton Foundation and other matters that were very interrelated to the email scandal;
  • I expect the report will contain a raft of criminal referrals, and that AG Sessions will promptly act on those referrals;
  • I expect the fake news media is going to wail in protest and will naturally go after Horowitz,  but is going to have a pretty hard time convincing the public that the guy who was appointed by Barack Obama just spent 14 months dummying up a report at the behest of Donald Trump;
  • I expect that the President is actually pretty pleased with Sessions, and that if he was really as upset with his AG as he has pretended to be over the last 14 months and as mercurial as the fake news media like to portray him as being, he’d have fired Sessions in a fit of pique long ago.

That’s a lot of expectations out of a single tweet and a one-paragraph response, but as I said above, the President really doesn’t just toss stuff like this out onto his Twitter account for no reason.

That is all.

Georgia Republicans’ Show of Spine is Giving Delta a Case of the Blues

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Tired of all this Winning yet? – President Donald Trump’s public approval rating in the Rasmussen Survey is now 50%, seven percent higher than the rating in the same poll for Barack Obama on the same date in his second term in office.  This should not be surprising, given that Obama at that time was having to defend the Obamacare bill, which would take hundreds of billions of dollars away from working Americans, while Trump is currently promoting the Trump tax cuts, which give hundreds of billions of dollars back to working Americans.  Funny how that works, huh?

Democrats in action. – ICE agents were able to round up 150 illegal aliens in the Oakland area on Tuesday, in a roundup of known lawbreakers.  An ICE spokesman estimated that about 850 more known criminals were able to evade the roundup, blaming at least some of those escapes on Oakland’s nitwit Mayor, Libby Schaff, who issued a warning to the criminals to head for the hills on Monday.  This intentional effort to ensure that known criminals remain at large among her city’s population is what leftwingers like Schaff refer to as “protecting the people.”

More Democrats in action. – Bizarre Barbra Streisand told Variety that she had her dog cloned.  Hey, as long as nobody clones Barb, I got no problem with that.

Still more Democrats in action. – U.S. Olympic skier Gus Kenworthy was horrified by the Korean tradition of eating dogs, saying that “Dogs are friends, not food.”  So the skier admirably decided to engage in a little symbolism of his feelings, adopting a puppy from one of the country’s thousands of food dog kennels.  Amerian social justice warriors, upon learning of Kenworthy’s compassionate rescue of the little puppy, reacted very predictably:  They screamed that he is engaging in “cultural colonialism” and hammered him on social media.  Because this is what SJWs do.

He’s been a real bug-eyed bonanza for CNN and MSNBC. – The Daily Caller reports that California Congressman Adam Schiff, the ranking Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee, has now given a phenomenal 227 TV interviews since President Trump took office less than 14 months ago.  According to information compiled by the Republican National Committee, this means that Schiff has been on television more than 26 hours since last January 20.  For all you Millenials out there, that is twice as long as a full season of Game of Thrones.

Speaking of Mr. Schiff, it appears he may be delegating his long-time role as official leaker for the Democrats on the House Intel Committee.  When White House Communications Director Hope Hicks refused to answer certain questions related to the presidential transition process – which the Administration considers to be privileged – in testimony before the committee in closed session on Tuesday, that fact was leaked to the media before her testimony was over by Illinois Democrat Mike Quigley.  So perhaps Schiff has decided to share his leaky wealth.

Delta Airlines has gotten itself into a real pickle down in Georgia.  After Delta engaged in a round of corporate virtue signaling late last week, cancelling a long-time discount ticket arrangement for members of the NRA, the Georgia Senate took up a bill that would retaliate by cancelling property tax exemptions Delta enjoys at its Corporate headquarters in the state.  Delta officials spent all day Tuesday scrambling for a way to retain both their virtue signaling posture and their tax breaks, but thus far the state’s Republican officials are holding firm.

This action by the Republicans in the state is something that would have never taken place in the past.  Up until this time, timid Republicans just sat by and took insults like Delta’s action against the NRA meekly, hoping that, by remaining quiet and hunkered down under their desks, they could avoid any negative attention from the hostile fake news media.  But this is the age of Trump, and Republicans are finally learning from the President that they can win with the public by taking bold, principled stands.  It’s really sad that it has taken until the year 2018 for a very unconventional President to teach Republicans that taking bold action to support your friends is actually smart politics, but hey, better late than never.

For its own part, the NRA issued a statement in which it said that actions such as that taken by Delta are a “shameful display of civic and political cowardice.”  Kind of like the actions of the Broward County Sheriff’s department during the Parkland school shootings.  Couldn’t have said it better myself.

Just another day in singin’ the Delta blues America.

That is all.

Democrats: the Gun-Banning Vampires of American Society

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Tired of all this Winning yet? – After going through what seems to have been a fairly standard 10% correction during early February, the stock markets have bounced back.  The Dow Jones Industrial average rose by 399 points on Monday, and has now regained more than half of the losses from earlier in the month.  Meanwhile, the economy is rolling along so strongly that many economists fear it will create more new jobs than the nation has qualified candidates to fill.  This is what is known in economics 101 class as a good problem to have.  #Winning.

Ryan Seacrest is getting his moment in the #MeToo sun, as his former personal stylist accuses him of all manner of Harvey Weinstein-ish behavior towards her.  Should make for a fun season on the revival of American Idol.  Hey, when do Joe Scarborough and Chris Cuomo get to have their #MeToo moments?

After spending ten days in the wake of the Florida school shootings laughably claiming they didn’t want to ban guns, the Democrat Party has done what it always does, which is demonstrate it was lying in unison.  On Monday, more than 150 Democrats in the U.S. House of Representatives introduced a bill that would ban vaguely-defined “assault weapons.”

If you’re thinking this is a repeat of Dianne Feinstein’s 1990s-era fiasco that sought to ban weapons based solely on what they look like, think again.  This bill would go much further, prohibiting “the ‘sale, transfer, production, and importation’ of semi-automatic rifles and pistols that can hold a detachable magazine, as well as semi-automatic rifles with a magazine that can hold more than 10 rounds. Additionally, the legislation bans the sale, transfer, production, and importation of semi-automatic shotguns with features such as a pistol grip or detachable stock, and ammunition feeding devices that can hold more than 10 rounds.”

If any of that comes as a surprise to you, then you have probably also been surprised over the last 26 years as the Democrat Party and its leftwing activist support base have worked as hard as human beings possibly could to erode your right to free exercise of religion, your freedom from self-incrimination, your freedom from unreasonable search and seizure, not to mention their all-out assault on your first amendment right to free speech in recent years.  But again, none of that should have surprised you, either.

It should not have to be repeated yet again, but here goes:  Anyone who adheres to leftist orthodoxy – as basically every Democrat in America today does – is a budding tyrant.  Their policy choices cannot be supported by facts or logic;  thus, the only way Democrats can gain power and maintain is by lying.  The lies can only be sustained if the public is ignorant, demoralized and helpless.  The way to keep the public ignorant, demoralized and helpless is to control what they say, do and think.  The way to control what they say, do and think is to rob Americans of their constitutional rights.

There.  Print that paragraph out and tape it to your refrigerator door for future reference.

Hey, I thought that whole “mansplaining” thing was supposed be bad. – Meanwhile, the Democrats with press passes at CNN took the whole gun confiscation argument into the realm of the absurd – which is CNN’s main core competency, after all – as law enforcement analyst Tom Fuentes suggested that 52% of the U.S. population (that would be all you women out there, or is it “wymyn?”) can’t own handguns because “they wear skirts” and stuff.  I swear I don’t make this stuff up.  Who could?

In other news, 17 year-old Parkland, Florida motor-mouth David Hogg lobbed out the king of all futile gestures, swearing that he won’t go back to school until the Florida state legislature passes a bill to ban guns.  Uh, ok.  You go, dude.

In all seriousness, does this kid not have parents?  Does he not have even a single responsible adult in his life who gives a damn about him?  Hogg is obviously being fed talking points – anyone who has done communications or public policy work for a living will recognize that reality about him in 3 seconds of listening to the things he recites from memory on CNN and MSNBC every day.  That means that he has gotten himself tied up with either the local Democrat Party or some group of leftist activists, which is essentially the same thing.

Some responsible adult who actually gives a damn about Mr. Hogg needs to sit him down and explain to him that these activists, and the leftwing activists who masquerade as “journalists” on the cable news channels, are not his friends.  They don’t care about him or his future.  They think he’s cute, fairly articulate, and that he currently serves a temporary purpose in helping them hammer Republicans and President Trump.  Once that purpose has run its course – which will take no more than another week or two – all of these people who Hogg currently believes are his friends will drop him like a hot potato and pretend not to know him for all the rest of his natural life.

These people Hogg has gotten himself tied up with are ghouls, the vampires of American society.  They suck the life out of people like Hogg to feed their political purposes, and then discard the lifeless carcass once it has finished feeding their current narrative.  Hogg obviously has been led to believe that his current actions are setting himself up for a career in the media or politics.  That is sadly, horrifically incorrect, and some adult in his life needs to intervene, soon.

Just another day in Democrats are ghouls America.

That is all.

If Dissembling Were an Olympics Event, Adam Schiff and Scott Israel Would be Co-Gold Medal Winners

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Tired of all this Winning yet? – The 2018 U.S. Winter Olympics team was a colossal flop, winning just 23 medals overall, the lowest U.S. total since 1998.  This comes despite the fact that the Games have been loaded up with junk sports over the last 20 years specifically in order to give the U.S. a shot at winning more medals, in hopes of boosting TV ratings.  Not surprisingly, the poor U.S. performance also led directly to these Olympic games setting new lows in terms of television audience.

But all is not lost, sports fans!   As The Simpsons eerily predicted 8 years ago, the U.S. men’s curling team was able to raise their brooms over their heads as they were awarded the gold medal for the first time ever!  It’s like they always say, if your nation’s main core competency in athletics is sliding a gigantic rock across 50 feet of ice while a guy clears its way with a broom, you are becoming Norway, which, as President Trump recently assured us, is definitely not a shithole country.  So we got that going for us.  #Winning!

While my website was down on Saturday, bug-eyed California Congressman Adam Schiff released his long-awaited “counter-memo” on FISA abuse to a public that is now obsessed with other matters.  The fact that Schiff took 2 weeks to edit a few sentences and remove some footnotes from his tome and then released it quietly on a Saturday – ensuring a minimum amount of news coverage – tells you all you really need to know about the thing.

The Democrats with press passes in the fake news media predictably hailed the Schiff memo as the word of god.  But basically, once you get past all the irrelevant fluff and attacks on President Donald Trump scattered throughout the thing, the Schiff memo simply confirms what Devin Nunes and Trey Gowdy had already told us three weeks ago:  That the Obama Administration used the Fake Trump Dossier as its main basis for obtaining a FISA warrant to spy on the Trump Campaign, and later on the Trump Transition team; that the FBI and DOJ did not inform the court that the Dossier was paid for by the DNC and the Clinton Campaign;  that the information in the Dossier was unverified and was obtained by a British agent and sourced mainly from Russian agents; and that this process was repeated 4 times over a period of 9 months.

Schiff’s latest distraction not only does not dispute those key facts of wrongdoing by the Obama FBI and DOJ, it actively confirms them.  In response to Schiff’s laughable dud, Nunes issued a point-by-point dissection of thing, which everyone at CNN and MSNBC studiously ignored.  You can bet the balance of your 401(k) that Schiff, having created the misdirection he was shooting for, will now clam up like a mid-level mob operative and hope this particular aspect of the House Intelligence Committee’s work fades away.

Meanwhile, in Florida, Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel, barely hours removed from hilariously bragging to fake CNN host Jake Tapper that he had provided “amazing leadership” in his duties as Sheriff, told a local NBC affiliate’s reporter that he’s just not responsible at all for the actions of his deputies.  I swear I don’t make this stuff up:  “As I said, I’m the Sheriff, my name’s on the door,” Israel said. “The people responsible are the ones who took the calls and didn’t follow up on them, as it was with the FBI, as it was with any person.  Leaders are responsible for the agency, but leaders are not responsible for a person.  I gave him a gun. I gave him a badge. I gave him the training. If he didn’t have the heart to go in, that’s not my responsibility.”

As of early Monday morning, this aspiring circus clown still has his job, but one wonders whether the people of Florida have enough self-respect to allow that situation to last into Monday afternoon.  If Speaker of the Florida House Richard Corcoran has his way, it won’t.  Corcoran and 73 of his Republican colleagues sent a letter to Florida Gov. Rick Scott on Sunday that demands he immediately suspend Israel for “dereliction of duty and incompetence.”  Although sheriffs in Florida are elected to their office, the state’s law does give the state’s governor the right to take such action.

Given that, to borrow one of Israel’s favorite words, it’s rather “amazing” that Governor Scott has waited this long to get this embarrassment to his state’s dissembling face off of America’s television sets.  No time like the present, Governor.  What are you waiting for?

Just another day in Winning Curling is still Winning America.

How an Insane Liberal Money Grab Led to the Parkland School Shootings

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

And she’ll keep saying that so she can continue to use her gig on 60 Minutes as a campaign platform – Oprah Winfrey says she’s “definitely not” running for president.

Better headline: Crazy Person Says Everyone Who Disagrees With Her is Crazy. – Rose McGowan says Trump voters are victims of “Cult brainwashing.”

Now that they’ve gotten their virtue signaling on sexual assault out of the way by wearing black to the Golden Globes Awards show and grown tired of using that #MeToo hashtag with all their Tweets, all the depraved mental midgets in Hollywood have decided to move on signaling their virtue on the gun control frenzy. Boy, that’s surprising, huh?

But of course, in this ongoing media-created national nervous breakdown over the school shootings in Parkland, Florida, guns become quickly of little relevance to those who are actually looking for the truth behind what led to the tragedy. The gun control aspect of it mainly serves to give liberals something to scream about in order to divert attention away from the real root cause, which in such situations pretty much always turns out to be policies that they foist upon our society.

Parkland is just the latest manifestation of this reality. It took more than a week, but we finally discovered several facts on Friday that clarify how a kid with such a long history of violence and mental illness was able to walk into a local high school from which he had been expelled and kill 17 people.

USA Today has a report out detailing the fact that the Broward County Sheriff’s department received at least 18 calls from individuals who know the shooter and were worried that he had access to weapons and would ultimately use them to commit murder. 18 times, and that is in addition to the 39 times local law enforcement was called out to the guy’s home to stop him from harming his relatives.

Did he ever go to jail? No. Was he ever prosectuted? No. Was he ever even charged with a crime? No. Hell, it took the better part of a decade before his repeated violent offenses even got him expelled from school. Many are labeling this a “failure” of local law enforcement and the Broward County School system. Which would be bad enough if only that were true.

But this story only gets worse: It turns out that this was not at all a “failure” of law enforcement and the school system, but rather the result of actual compliance with an idiotic liberal policy that had taken effect in 2009. In that year, Broward County schools and law enforcement entered into a conscious agreement to stop enforcing the law on school campuses in order to “improve” statistics related to student behavior. By improving those statistics – by artificially reducing the number of reported instances of criminal behavior and student arrests – the school district and local law enforcement would gain access to more state and federal funding.

In other words, it was all a money grab, and now 17 people are dead as a result.

But it gets even worse than that. A friend on Facebook points out that in 2016, the Barack Hussein Obama Administration’s Department of Education actually used this Broward County agreement to stop enforcing the law on school campuses (and this really what it is despite all the evasive liberal labeling of it) as a model for new guidelines that were rolled out nationally. Given that compliance with these guidelines will play a role in determining the level of federal school and law enforcement funding, you can bet that they have now been implemented broadly across the country.

So think about it: How many more ticking time bomb kids do we have out there right now, who have exhibited years of mental illness and violent behavior, have access to weapons, are well-known to school administrators and local law enforcement, are legends among their peers, but are still walking around free to harm others because this insane liberal system for grabbing federal dollars discourages the local police and sheriff’s department from doing anything about them?

Much has been made in the last 24 hours about the revelation that no fewer than 4 Broward County Sheriff’s deputies were on the scene while the killings were taking place, and did nothing to stop them. But hell, they’d been doing nothing about criminal behavior on school property for almost a decade – so is it any wonder that they just continued in that mode in this situation?

You want to know why liberals invariably knee-jerk to screaming about guns when tragedies like this take place? Because an honest search for the root cause always leads right back to their own insane doorstep.

Just another day in Gun Derangement Syndrome America.

That is all.

Today’s The Day The Trump Tax Cuts Save The GOP Congress, If Only Congress Will Let Them

  • Hey, have you ever wondered whatever happened to that lovely, delightful Jill Stein?  You remember her, don’t you?  That “Green” Party candidate who received some rounding error-level number of votes in last year’s presidential election, and then held the country hostage for a month while demanding recounts in Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin?  Oh, yeah, THAT Jill Stein? Isn’t she a pistol?
  • Well, it turns out she is alive and sort of well, but not completely well, because the Washington Post is reporting today that she is now under investigation by the Robert Mueller Witch Hunt, er, coup d’etat, er, Special Counsel operation.  Why?  Well, I don’t really care.  I just love the poetic justice involved here.  You go, Bob.  You’ve finally stumbled across your witch.
  • Speaking of Witch Hunts, a couple dozen protesters who don’t want their taxes cut found themselves hunting around Capitol Hill for Nancy Pelosi Monday afternoon, when the House Minority Leader failed to show up for their sparsely attended event at which they planned to express their righteous outrage at having to give less money to the federal government.  Pelosi had agreed to attend the event when she was told that hundreds of her fellow leftist nitwits were going to show up for it, but when that crowd failed to materialize, well, San Fran Nan flew the coop.  No word whether or not she was riding a broom when she did.
  • Justice Department Lawyer Bruce Ohr, recently demoted when it was revealed that he held regular meetings with the sleazy operatives of the Fusion GPS firm – where his wife was employed – during last year’s presidential campaign, had his scheduled testimony before the Senate Intelligence Committee postponed until later this week.  Committee members rescheduled his appearance after they received a new tranche of long-withheld documents from the Justice Department earlier in the day, and they wanted time to review those documents before hearing from Mr. Ohr.
  • Another cog in the DOJ Deep State cabal, Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe, is scheduled to testify later today before the House Intelligence Committee, in what is supposed to be a closed-door session.  It will be interesting to see if McCabe turns up, and how long it takes California Democrat Adam Schiff or some other Democrat to leak the substance of the hearing to CNN if he does.
  • Meanwhile, today is Tax Cut Day in the United States Congress.  Yes, friends, the Republican majorities in both houses of congress, who have been making unfulfilled promises to you for eight long years, are finally, at long last, on the verge of actually keeping one of them!  Yay!
  • The clincher for getting this largest tax cut in American history sent to the President’s desk appeared to come late Monday when the fakest fake Republican in the Senate, Maine Senator Susan Collins, announced that she would vote ‘yes’ on the bill.  Once it became clear that Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has the critical mass of needed votes, Senator From the News Media John McCain fled town so he wouldn’t be a part of a resounding success for President Donald Trump (I still never tire of typing those three words).
  • In all seriousness, this is life or death for the Republican Party’s congressional future.  Get it done, and you have a chance to hold your majorities in both houses of congress in the 2018 mid-term elections, maybe even increase your Senate advantage.  Fail, and you have no chance.  Literally no chance at all – 2018 would become an inevitable wave election favoring the Democrats if this vote fails.
  • Because the fake news media has demonized the bill with talking points coordinated with the Democrat Party – its standard procedure in such matters – the bill does not currently poll well.  But wait until February, when the new tax withholding tables go into effect, and literally every working American sees that his or her paycheck has increased dramatically, and those polls will turn right around.
  • Once that happens, you’ll see the same thing start happening to those “generic congressional preference” polls, which lately have shown the Democrats with a 7-10 point advantage.  The economy is already booming, with the New York Fed now projecting 4% economic growth for the 4th quarter.  More and more Americans are going back to work every day now, and if they also see they are taking home more of their hard-earned money thanks to a bill that every Democrat opposed, the complexion for the 2018 mid-terms will turn around on a dime.
  • Today’s vote is one of the most crucial votes in the history of the GOP.  No wonder John McCain wants no part of it, and we aren’t hearing a peep of support from Mitt Romney or George W. Bush.  That tells you all you need to know about the quality of “conservatives” the Republican Party had been nominating for the presidency before Donald Trump came along.

Just another day in Donald Trump’s America.

That is all.

The Media Just Keeps Faking The News And Donald Trump Loves It

  • These continue to be trying times for the NFL.  While most teams continue to announce their games as “sell outs”, thanks mainly to corporate ticket-buying programs, games all over the NFL were played to sparse attendance on Sunday as actual fans choose to stay home in droves.  This week’s Thursday Night Football game between the Denver Broncos and some other team that no one cares about received the worst Thursday game ratings in years.  The player protests of the national anthem go on and on, though their coverage has been muted by the TV networks desperate to move on from the matter, but the damage has been done.  The sub-moron team owners recently chose to extend the contract of Commissioner Roger Goodell, saddling the league with a raging nitwit-in-charge for another five-year term.
  • If you want another reason why many fans have abandoned a league they supported for many years, all you need do is look at what happened at the end of the game between the Steelers and Patriots on Sunday.  After Tom Brady had led his team on one of his 50+ 4th quarter TD drives to apparently put the game away, the Steelers stormed right back down the field in 3 plays, scoring what appeared to be the winning TD on a pass from QB Ben Roethlisberger to TE Jesse James with 28 seconds left.  This was a play that would have counted as a clear and unambiguous touchdown at any other level of football – college, high school, jr. high or Pop Warner – it was a TD anywhere else on earth as soon as the ball crossed over the plane of the goal line with the receiver in firm possession of it.
  • But, because the receiver lost control of the ball when he slammed to the ground in the end zone, the replay officials called the play an incomplete pass.  Roethlisberger threw an interception on the next play, and the game had been literally given to the Patriots by the officials.  This is the same horrible, idiotic rule that was invoked to hand an apparent Dallas Cowboys playoff win in 2014 to the Green Bay Packers instead.  The fact that this lunatic rule is still on the NFL’s books three years later tells you all you need to know about the morons who run this league.
  • The fake editors and fake reporters at CNN will get this story wrong, too. – The UK Guardian reports that Pope Francis “has criticised journalists who dredge up old scandals and sensationalise the news, saying it’s a “very serious sin” that hurts all involved.”  In response, fake reporters all over the fake news media here in the U.S. were assigned by their fake editors to look into the Pope’s background and see what, if any scandals they could dig up.
  • Speaking of faking the news, the national news media and the Democrat Party coordinated all weekend long to push a fake story about President Trump supposedly planning to fire Robert Mueller.  Faced with having to make the GOP’s pending passage of the largest tax cut in American history the lead story of the weekend, the Democrats and fake news outlets did what they do anytime they’re faced with having to cover a positive story about the Trump Administration – they made a fake story up that they could focus on instead.
  • Late on Friday, the Democrats sent obscure California Congresswoman Jackie Speier out on TV to push out the claim that there was a “rumor” going around congress that the President planned to make a nationally televised speech right before Christmas announcing the firing of the Special Counsel.  Once Speier had made that claim – a claim no one else in congress was making, a claim put out into the public space absent the slightest shred of evidence, a claim made despite the consistent, repeated denials from the White House every time the question has been asked since March – it became the lead story on every fake news broadcast, headline news in every fake news paper across the country, and the lead story on every one of the Sunday morning fake news programs.
  • Thus, for an entire weekend, when responsible, real journalists would have been working to inform their readers and viewers about what this new, gigantic reform of the U.S. tax system – the first such major reform in more than three decades – means to them, the fake news media focused instead on coordinating with the Democrat Party to promote a myth.
  • Granted, there are all sorts of great reasons why Robert Mueller deserves to be fired, including 1) his appointment by Rod Rosenstein was illegitimate to begin with, 2) Mueller’s massive personal conflicts of interest related to the case, 3) his stacking of his staff with an array of hyper-partisan hacks, and 4) his resorting to illegal means of obtaining the Trump Transition team’s email records, to name just a few.
  • Despite all those great reasons that would fully justify Mueller’s firing, there has never been the slightest indication that the President had any plans to do so.  As he has been since Day 1 of his presidency, Donald Trump appears perfectly content to let the media fake up all the fake stories it wants to fake, while he and his administration just keep executing radical change for real Americans with little notice.
  • Winning.  So, so, soooo much winning.

Just another weekend in So, So, Soooo Much Winning! America.

That is all.
