Trump’s Kill Shot on Beto is Already Yielding Results

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

The shallowest man on the planet. – Over the weekend, Irish Bob O’Rourke compared bureaucrats at the EPA who write climate-related regulations to the thousands of incredibly brave American soldiers who landed on the beaches of Normandy on D-Day. I knew a couple of those men in my younger days, and I’m frankly glad they are no longer around to witness such abject nonsense emerging from the mouth of a candidate for the U.S. presidency.

Absolutely disgraceful.

Irish Bob also had to issue his first apology to the social media outrage mob on Sunday, not something we’d have expected to see from the guy who last fall was the idol of the college campus set. The intrepid Irishman’s sin was … wait for it… oh, you have to wait for this one… GIVING HIS WIFE MOST OF THE CREDIT FOR RAISING THEIR CHILDREN!

I kid you not, the outrage mob decided Irish Bob had to genuflect before them in supplication after he credited his wife Amy with raising their children “sometimes with my help.” This simple expression of gratitude to his wife for taking up the slack during the many times he’s been away from home due to his political career created such a high level of outrage on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram that the fidgety ex-congressman felt the need to say the following:

“Not only will I not say that again, but I’ll be more thoughtful going forward in the way that I talk about our marriage,” and “My ham-handed attempt to try to highlight the fact that Amy has the lion’s share of the burden in our family — that she actually works but is the primary parent in our family, especially when I served in Congress, especially when I was on the campaign trail — should have also been a moment for me to acknowledge that that is far too often the case, not just in politics, but just in life in general. I hope as I have been in some instances part of the problem, I can also be part of the solution.”

Breathtaking. You seriously cannot make this stuff up.

But here’s the funniest part of the whole incident:  He said all of that with his normally-flailing arms held rigidly at his sides. Watch this clip:

Once again, a Donald Trump kill shot has had a major impact on one of his opponents. In case you missed it, after Irish Bob had formally announced his campaign in a frenetic, hyperactive speech during which his arms were flailing all over the damn place, President Trump gave the speech this hilarious review during a White House press availability:

“Well, I think he’s got a lot of hand movement. I’ve never seen so much hand movement. I said, ‘Is he crazy or is that just the way he acts?'” Trump said at the White House. “I watched him a little while this morning, during I assume it was some kind of a news conference, and I’ve actually never seen anything quite like it.”

Just three days later, Irish Bob’s arms appear to be welded to his sides.

Coincidence? Not hardly. This is classic Trump, doing to O’Rourke what he did to Jeb! “Low Energy” Bush, Little Marco Rubio and “Pocahontas” Warren. Once the President issues one of these kill shots and they get repeated endlessly in social media and the fake news media, it becomes impossible for voters to see these people without having that image in the back of their minds.

Even worse for Trump’s opponents, being the subject of such a kill shot makes them so self-conscious and focused on proving him wrong that they end up doing incredibly stupid things, like Rubio going on a series of ballistic tirades during a debate and “Pocahontas” killing her career with that idiotic DNA test. And now he’s got Irish Bob so focused on keeping his arms and hands still that he appears to be doing an impersonation of a Civil War statue.

This just creates another huge problem for Irish Bob. All of his arm-waving and running around the stage and bobbing and weaving and jumping and skate-boarding and just general flailing about is a big, big part of his appeal where the college set is concerned. These are children who grew up with their eyes constantly welded to their I-Pad or I-Phone in a never-ending quest for an image or short video clip that will give them that next shot of dopamine. They have the attention span of the average squirrel and require constant visual stimulation in order to hold their focus.

To this point, O’Rourke has served as their own political version of YouTube. If he becomes just another rigid talking head and stops giving them their shots of dopamine, all these kids are just going to go back to streaming videos.

One thing’s for sure: Trump has already gotten into Irish Bob’s head, and it is showing.

That is all.

The Week in Review: Beto, Biden and Bribes, Oh My!

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 loss of an hour’s sleep due to our annual national act of Daylight Savings Time insanity, and it just went down from there.:

The sponsor of the “Green New Deal” was among fellow Climate Frauds in Austin on Sunday, and she got a selfie with one of the biggest frauds of all.:

This is, like, what AOC, like, sounds like when she….ummm…like, goes off script.:

Meanwhile, things continued to crumble out in Los Angeles…:

He isn’t often right, but he’s right about this.:

Greg Budell had the perfect solution for young Americans who favor turning our country into just another socialist cesspit of human misery.:

Fox News’s Tucker Carlson again became a target of the social media outrage mob when the scumbags at Media Matters dug up some comments he’d made on a talk radio program a decade ago. His response should serve as the role model for anyone caught up in such nonsense in the future.:

It’s always fun watching an old cowboy whipping a young thug’s ass, complete with taking his shirt.:

The fake news never stops at CNN, and Little Jimmy Acosta continues to be the most tireless yet least effective news-faker in the business.:

This bit of truth cannot be repeated often enough.:

Oh. Uh, wouldn’t that be, like, collusion or something?:

How many dead elderly Americans do you reckon polled to come to the conclusion that they aren’t happy?:

This man is seriously considering running for president. No, seriously, he really is.:

Think about it: You know it’s true.:

Man, that’s gonna make it a lot harder for the people at NOAA to keep defrauding the global temperature records.:

Is this even an arguable point? China is the world’s second-largest economy, and it is still taking money from the World Bank? Holy crap, we are such a bunch of suckers.:

She. Did. Not. Rule. Out. Impeachment.:

When the media refuses to correctly identify the root cause of the problem (in this case, Democrats) the problem will only continue to grow.:

A couple of true geniuses passed away this week. First, Dan Jenkins, probably the greatest and funniest sports writer who ever lived, died at the age of 94. Then, Hal Blaine, an incomparable studio drummer, joined Jenkins in the afterlife.:

Mitt Romney had a birthday, and all that did was remind us of his failings.:

It was a week when the Democrats really ramped-up their obsession with political losers.:

The truth about AOC emerged, and it really helped make sense of everything she says and does. If you haven’t taken the 23 minutes required to watch this expose’, make time to do it. You’ll be glad you did.:

Oh, well, call me insecure, then. *sigh*:

Pretty sure that’s also a piece of AOC’s “Green New Deal.” Isn’t sewer water generally green?:

Here, I try to educate some fake reporter who is lying about his interactions with folks from the oil and gas industry. I no doubt failed.:

Just thought you all should know this.:

Here I capture the essence of today’s Federal Bureau of Investigation.:

Well, I would.:

Here is leading Climate Fraud Bill McKibben, promoting what amounts to nothing more or less than mass child abuse.:

And now we pause for a little cat comedy gold.:

Ok, this intermission is going to last just a little longer…:

In other news, water continues to be wet.:

This was not the best piece I’ve ever written, but it might well be the cleverest headline.:

Self-awareness continues to be a personal weakness for Fauxcahontas.:

Ben Shapiro captured the pure essence of the media’s approach to writing Beto profiles.:

There are just so many unattractive options where Irish Bob O’Rourke is concerned.:

Seriously, was there still anyone out there who didn’t already know this?:

Try, just try, to imagine how utterly worthless a degree from NYU truly is.:

Well, of course he did.:

When his campaign comes up a crapper, he can replace Matthew McConaughey in those Lincoln ads.:

If you don’t follow Nick Searcy on Twitter, you are truly missing out on the fun.:

I got up in a sour mood on Friday. CNN only made it worse.:

Just hours after swearing we were all gonna die if we don’t stop using gasoline, Irish Bob was begging donors to pay to fill up his gas-guzzling minivan. You seriously cannot make this stuff up.:

No question about this.:

David Corn needs better talking points. This is just too easy.:

This happened.:

Now, for another funny break.:

When Chelsea Clinton was harassed by a Muslim college student, various conservatives rushed to her defense on Twitter. I couldn’t for the life of me figure out why. But then, I never cared much for virtue signaling.:

This is self-serving, but hey, it’s my blog.:

I always was a big fan of The Who.:

Those two options are not mutually-exclusive.:

Here, I offer a little free advice to Senator Ted Cruz.  I wish he’d take it – he’d be doing a national service.:

The clearest proof that “Climate Change” is a socialist-promoting scam is that its most prominent spokesmen are invariably people who don’t make any effort at all to change their own lifestyles.:

Finally, I’m a huge fan of Texas Governor Greg Abbott, but every once in a while he gets something wrong.:

That is all.

How March 15, 2019 Turned Out to be the Ides of Beto

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

Just don’t call it Jeb!II, ‘cuz that looks funny. – Just days after his 2016 campaign’s Super PAC was hit with a huge fine for taking more than $1.3 million in illegal contributions from Chinese interests, Jeb! Bush was on CNN (because of course he was on CNN) saying that someone (hint, hint) ought to challenge President Donald Trump for the GOP nomination in 2020.

Gosh, who would that be, Jeb!? Why, what Republican out there would have the ability to raise something like, oh, I don’t know, $150 million or so from U.S. and Chinese interests to fritter away in a hopeless effort to challenge a hugely-successful sitting President from his own party?

What prominent Republican is so filled with hubris and lacking in anything substantive to do with the rest of his life that he would be willing to take on the mantle of the rapidly-dying #NeverTrump nitwit faction of the GOP in such a Quixotic quest? Even better, what prominent Republican has a last name that every American voter immediately recognizes thanks to a family legacy of ex-Presidents and his having tossed away $150 million in American and Chinese currency during the 2016 nominating battle?

Hey, I know who that guy is – he’s Jeb! And the great thing is, Jeb! could even promise to name Paul Ryan as his running mate, since Ryan’s got nothing better to do right now, either. That worked out so well for Mitt Romney in 2012, after all. Maybe even call him Paul!, because that worked out so well for Jeb!, didn’t it?

“Jeb!Paul!2020!” The bumper stickers practically name themselves!

Ok, that’s too many exclamation points – time to move on.

Dear Irish Bob: Your window of opportunity was January 1. You missed it. – Back in November, I told you all that I fully expected Robert Francis O’Rourke to be the Democrats’ 2020 nominee for the presidency.  Then, in early February, I warned you that the lanky, fidgety Texan had better fish or cut bait pretty quick, because his window of opportunity was closing.

Here’s an excerpt from that piece:

A month ago I’d have made Irish Bob the odds-on favorite to be the 2020 Democrat nominee because he is the absolutely perfect Democrat candidate:  Completely unqualified; no accomplishments in the private sector of our economy of any note; no real accomplishments in government, either, for that matter; willing to say literally anything to attract votes from depraved and demented Democrat base voters; and he looks good on television. Hell, he even has his fake nickname that leads at least half of all Democrat voters to still think he is Hispanic or something, allowing him to tick off that “Minority” box even though he isn’t one, just like Fauxcahontas has made a habit of doing throughout her adult life in order to get ahead.

Today, I’m telling you that my February piece was overly-optimistic, and our hero’s window of opportunity most likely closed way back in January, maybe even December, before any of the other candidates got into the race.

There was plenty of reason in late November to believe O’Rourke could become the Democrat nominee. Yeah, he’d just lost his senate race to Ted Cruz, but he had made it pretty close thanks to a 3-to-1 spending advantage, and today’s Democrats are all about the moral victory, just fascinated with political losers. He was clearly the favorite of all the young girls in the news media and many of the young men as well, all of whom longed to get the plum assignment of covering his campaign.

He truly had everything going for him, all the political momentum in the world, and then…he decided to take a few months off. He said he had to go “find myself”, and spent weeks wandering around who knows where, live-streaming dental visits, doing interviews with an ever-willing Oprah and “60 Minutes” crew and apparently raising a clinically depressed black Labrador retriever.

December came and went. January came and went. February came and went and then half of March, until there were 11 Democrat candidates in the race, but still no precious Beto for all the local TV news anchors to swoon over. Simply put, by the time Irish Bob finally got around to formally announcing he was going to run, a huge portion of his potential support base that was firmly behind him in late 2018 had already moved on.

Even more devastating for the de facto favored candidate of the news media, many of his potential suitors had grown tired of being stood up for the date, and had even grown bitter. Even worse than that, some of them had even figured out the essence of his schtick, as evidenced by the headline of the piece published yesterday by the very liberal New Republic: “The Profound Emptiness of Beto O’Rourke.”  Ouch.

The leftwing media pushback wasn’t limited to the New Republic – far from it. The lunatics who run Slate beat them to the punch by two full days with an anti-Beto diatribe headlined “Beto 2020 Has No Reason to Exist.” Yikes.

By Friday, the growing awareness in the fake news media of Irish Bob’s essential emptiness as a human being and similarly-growing awareness by the Social Justice Warriors among the Democrat voter base that this guy with the Hispanic-sounding nickname is really just another pasty-faced white guy had the hacks at Politico using the dreaded “B” word:  “Not One Woman Got That Kind of Coverage: Beto Backlash Begins.” Hooboy.

Indeed, the backlash momentum had become so severe by week’s end that not even the news-fakers at CNN could resist getting in on the act:

 

Other leftist media organizations had become so bitter by Irish Bob’s months of dithering that they even assigned reporters to do some actual, real reporting on his dark personal background. That led to this report from Reuters making its way into publication on Friday:

Backstory: How Reuters uncovered Beto O’Rourke’s teenage hacking days – Reuters reporter Joseph Menn exclusively revealed on Friday that Democratic presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke belonged to one of the best-known groups of computer hackers as a teenager.

Oh, my.

This was not how it was all supposed to go for our precious Beto, not how it was supposed to go at all.

The fact that Friday was March 15, aka the Ides of March, had many speculating that Gestapo Chief, er, “Special Counsel” Robert Mueller would use the Caesarian symbolism of that date to issue his final report. Well, the long knives of the American Left were certainly out on Friday, but they weren’t coming for President Trump, they were coming for Irish Bob.

March 15, 2019 should forever be remembered as the Ides of Beto, the day it became obvious that the guy who couldn’t win Texas despite an enormous money edge and the entire national news media serving as his campaign’s propaganda operation won’t be able to compete on a national stage, either.

It turns out that window closed way back in January.

That is all.

Senate Vote to Rebuke Trump Lets GOP Voters Meet the Real Enemy

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

The Kabuki Theater in our nation’s capital never ceases. – Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell – who will be the Senate Minority Leader after the 2020 elections if he keeps pulling nonsense like this – staged a show vote in the U.S. Senate yesterday that will lead to President Donald Trump’s first exercise of his veto power.

The show vote came on a resolution to reverse the President’s national emergency declaration on the border situation – which congress is completely responsible for causing and allowing to mushroom – that was earlier passed by the House of Representatives. That declaration is clearly within both the President’s constitutional authority and consistent with the powers that congress had explicitly granted to every U.S. president in a law it passed in 1976.

Given that reality, the proper thing for a congress truly concerned with protecting its own powers to do would have been to act to reverse that 1976 law. But no, this is Kabuki theater we are playing at here, and members of congress really don’t want to have to be responsible for anything other than raising money for their next re-election campaign. Thus, House Democrats and a handful of Republicans came up with this resolution targeting a single declaration by a President they hate, a power that was exercised 17 times by America’s Worst Mistake, Barack Hussein Obama.

Given that this resolution contained a poison pill provision that gave the Senate just 18 days in which to hold a vote following the Feb. 26 house passage of it, McConnell could simply have allowed it to die on the vine without bringing it to the Senate floor as he has done with literally hundreds of previous bad bills that have come over from the House during his time in the leader’s post. But the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, the editorial board at the Wall Street Journal, and other major advocates of open borders demanded a show vote, and McConnell gave in to pressure from senate Republicans who are beholden to those elements of the D.C. establishment universe.

In the end, a dozen Republicans joined all 47 Senate Democrats in voting to pass the resolution. Rand Paul of Kentucky and Utah Senator Mike Lee voted with the majority due to their libertarian “principles”, principles that always seem to give one or both of them reason to defect to the Democrats on matters of real national import.  Funny how that works.

But the other 10 Rs who voted that way did so simply to please their open borders benefactors, and thus deserve to be mentioned by name and remembered by every thinking American who wishes to avoid turning our own country into just another 3rd-world hovel. Those senators are:

Susan Collins of Maine

Lisa Murkowski of Alaska, who has more conflicts than an episode of “Empire”

Mitt Romney of Utah because of course Mitt Romney is on this list

Marco Rubio of Florida because he still thinks he might be president some day

Rob Portman of Ohio

Pat Toomey of Pennsylvania

Jerry Moran of Kansas

Roy Blount of Missouri

Lamar Alexander of Tennessee

Roger Wicker of Mississippi

There they are in all their D.C. establishment glory, folks. Remember their names, and vote against them if you ever get the chance.

For his part, President Trump responded to the congressional taunt in typically hilarious and blunt fashion:

It’s a power he needs to use far more often. No better time to start than with this bit of Kabuki theater brought to his desk intentionally by Mitch McConnell and the open borders crowd in the GOP caucus.

Where GOP voters are concerned, a great line from the old “Pogo” comic strip comes to mind here:

The Democrats’ Ongoing Fascination With Political Losers

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

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is an actress. – Everyone should watch this video. Trust me, just watch it. It’ll be the best 23 minutes you invest this week. I’m going to keep this pinned at the top of each piece I post for the next few days in order to maximize its – and her – exposure.

Paul Begala is an anti-Semitic sleaze. – The man with the highest forehead on television referred to Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump as “cockroaches” in a clear effort to dehumanize the Jewish couple in the minds of CNN viewers. Adolph Hitler and Joseph Goebbels would have been extremely proud of Mr. Begala, who has made a living for 25 years now by lying on television.

Why is today’s Democrat Party such a steaming cesspit of anti-Semitism? – Speaking of raging anti-Semites, the Deputy Press Secretary for the Bernie Sanders campaign, an illegal alien named Belen Sisa, was forced to apologize yesterday when anti-Semitic posts she made on Facebook on Sunday were made public. Just more proof that Jewish voters who continue voting for Democrats are voting for their own destruction.

I’m betting she learned how to lose Florida. – The Tampa Bay Times had this to say in a tweet yesterday: “Amy Klobuchar revealed she recently spoke with Andrew Gillum about what it takes to win Florida. Here’s what she learned.” I swear I don’t make this stuff up.

What is it about the current crop of Democrats and their ongoing obsession with losers? Irish Bob O’Rourke, the Texas loser to Ted Cruz, after months of dithering around while trying to “find” himself as if he were a 22 year-old snowflake, appears about to finally announce his run for the presidency. Stacey Abrams, who lost the Georgia governor’s race to Brian Kemp despite having massive voter fraud in her favor, is now making noises about doing the same, as we noted here on Monday.

And now we have presidential candidates seeking advice from Gillum, who lost the governor’s race to Republican Ron DeSantis in spite of the sleazebag elections officials in Broward and Palm Beach counties spending a week trying to manufacture enough votes to tip the count in his favor. Gillum is so ethically challenged that he will probably soon find himself on trial on findings by the Florida Ethics Commission that he accepted illegal gifts on many occasions while serving as Mayor of Tallahassee.

Ok, come to think of it, that is all most likely exactly why Klobuchar is seeking Gillum’s advice.  These are Democrats we’re talking about here, after all.

Hey, no offense intended, but these guys are really, really old. – Going back to our precious Robert “Beto” O’Rourke for a moment, despite all the hundreds of millions of dollars in free media hype he has received from every media outlet from CNN to the New York Times to the Washington Post to MSNBC to Oprah (who is a media outlet in and of her own self), Irish Bob finds himself running a poor 5th in the latest Monmouth poll, trailing Creepy Joe Biden, the Commie, Kamala Harris and even Fauxcahontas with just 6% support among registered Democrat voters.

Meanwhile, Creepy Joe Biden comes in at 28%, with the Commie close behind at 26%. This brings me to just a fascinating set of fun facts.

On Election Day 2020, the Commie will be 79 years old, while Creepy Joe will be less than two weeks away from turning 78. If elected and then re-elected, either man would be pushing 90 by the end of a second term in office. This is rather stunning to know, considering that the oldest serving president in our nation’s history, Ronald Reagan, was 77 years old the day he left office after having served two full terms.

Every Democrat in America spent the full eight years of Ronaldus Magnus’s presidency screaming that he was just too darn old for the office. Today, the Creep and the Commie are pulling well over half of Democrat voter support. Meanwhile, the comparative “young guns” in the race, Irish Bob and Harris, are stumbling along with a combined 14%.

Thus, at this point, the Democrat fascination with political losers by the Party’s leadership hasn’t begun translating into actual support among Democrat voters. It seems these voters will require many more months of heavy-duty brainwashing by the Democrat fake news media.

Rest assured, that’s exactly what they will be getting, and they’ll like it. Because, Democrats.

That is all.

AOC is an Actress, and Other Bits of Democrat Chicanery

The Afternoon Campaign Update
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Some mid-day short takes on the passing scene…

Everyone should watch this video. – Trust me, just watch it. It’ll be the best 23 minutes you invest this week.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez isn’t a politician, she’s an actress. A puppet whose strings are being pulled behind the scenes by a group that calls itself the Justice Democrats, and is headed by the depraved Cenk Uygur.

This is all stuff I was not aware of, and of course our fake news media will never dream of reporting on any of it, so most of the general public will remain blissfully unaware. But isn’t it informative, and doesn’t it help explain so much?

Once you realize and accept this reality about the human sock puppet who is AOC, everything that has taken place with her over the past year, everything she says and does, makes perfect sense.

Wait, what? Um, isn’t that, like, collusion or something? – A super PAC set up to fund the campaign of Jeb! Bush in 2016 just got hit by the Federal Elections Commission with a massive fine for accepting $1.3 million in illegal contributions from Chinese-owned corporation American Pacific International Capital.

Very predictably, this illegal activity on the part of the Bush Campaign did not rise to headline news in your fake news media, and no Democrat in congress has called for the appointment of a Special Counsel to investigate this apparent collusion with China. Funny how that all works.

I wonder how many dead elderly Americans Newsweek polled in order to reach this conclusion? – This is a real, actual headline on a story at the ongoing disastrous failure that is Newsweek:

ELDERLY AMERICANS ARE DYING WITHOUT GETTING TO READ MUELLER’S REPORT – AND THEY’RE NOT HAPPY ABOUT IT

I swear I do not make this stuff up. I mean, really, who could?

Who is this Brie Larsen, and why did her parents name her for a type of cheese? – Pat Sajak bemoans the way today’s social justice warriors have taken the fun out of literally everything:

Spoiled Billionaire Used To Getting His Way Lashes Out! – Fake environmentalist Tom Steyer – who made most of his fortune through coal investments – isn’t taking Nancy Pelosi’s new impeachment talking points well, and is too dumb to understand she’s lying.

Steyer, who has already invested tens of millions of dollars in goofy, pro-impeachment ad campaigns and plans to throw millions more down that particular rat hole, had this to say in response to Pelosi’s new fake position on the matter:

“Speaker Pelosi thinks ‘he’s just not worth it?’ Well, is defending our legal system ‘worth it?’ Is holding the President accountable for his crimes and cover-ups ‘worth it?’ Is doing what’s right ‘worth it?’ Or shall America just stop fighting for our principles and do what’s politically convenient?”

This guy is so. damn. naive. He actually thinks Democrats care about quaint notions like “principles.” Laughable.

When anti-gun activists suddenly realize the error of their ways… – The Daily Caller reports that a Connecticut anti-gun activist was kicked out of a hearing on the gun control issue when she was caught sending texts in which she threatened to … wait for it … SHOOT a Republican politician and other opponents of gun control.

I swear, you really cannot make this stuff up.

Democrats Change Impeachment Talking Points, Fake Media Parrots Them

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

The Democrats have new talking points, not a new strategy, on impeachment. – In case you missed it, I told you yesterday evening that San Fran Nan has changed her talking points on impeachment, and went onto explain why it’s pretty much certain that she is lying (hint: her lips are moving).

In case you missed Pelosi’s comments and don’t want to click the provided link, here they are:

“I’m not for impeachment. This is news. I haven’t said this to any press person before. But since you asked, and I’ve been thinking about this, impeachment is so divisive to the country that unless there’s something so compelling and overwhelming and bipartisan, I don’t think we should go down that path because it divides the country. And he’s just not worth it.”

Of course, the fake news media, in its collective duty to serve as the propaganda wing of the Democrat Party, is treating Pelosi’s new script as if it were the 10 Commandments handed down from on high, and repeating them across the interwebnets and your TV screens this morning. Even some conservative voices are buying into the doddering Speaker’s new act, and treating her highly-qualified statements as if they’re some sort of “win” for President Donald Trump.

They aren’t.

To be fair to those fellow conservatives, it isn’t just Pelosi reading from a new script here. Bug-eyed California Congressman Adam Schiff, who chairs the House Intelligence Committee, echoed Pelosi’s remarks when questioned by CNN’s Manu Raju: “I think given how polarized the country is right now and given how the Republican members of Congress have prostrated themselves right now in front of the president, in the absence of very graphic evidence, it would be difficult to get the support of” the Senate.

But execrable New York Congressman Jerrold Nadler, whose own House Judiciary got the impeachment ball rolling by sending out 81 subpoenas last week, gave away the game when he told Raju “She laid down a number of conditions – it has got to be bipartisan, the evidence has to be overwhelming – which is what I’ve been saying.”

Get it yet? This is not a “win”, it’s not the Democrats backing away in fright from what polls show would be an extremely unpopular move to impeach the President. What it is is the Democrats, startled that the testimony by their “star witness” Michael Cohen was simply rejected by the vast majority of the public – including an overwhelming percentage of self-identifying Independents – now taking one step back and switching to a more cautious set of talking points.

Ok, I guess you could call that a moral victory of sorts.

But that’s all this is, folks – Democrats do this all the time. They and their media agents will stick with this set of talking points for a couple of weeks and then Schiff will start issuing subpoenas of his own. Then the talking points will change again, but the process and the strategy will remain the same.

The Democrats engage in this kind of deceitful behavior because they think you are a bunch of mindless sheep – and they are sadly right about the 37% of you who believed a word Michael Cohen said – and because they know the media is in their pocket and thus would never dream of holding them accountable.

Sorry to be repetitive here, but this is a learning moment for everyone. I know it is hard for many people to wrap their minds around exactly how abjectly dishonest the Democrat Party and national news media have become. Hard to believe this could have happened in this country.

But it has happened in this country, and once you accept that reality, everything they do and say makes perfect sense.

That is all.

Pelosi Claims She’s Against Impeachment, But Her Actions Say She’s Lying

The Evening Campaign Update
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

She’s against impeaching President Donald Trump until she’s for it. – Hey, know how to tell Nancy Pelosi’s lying? Her lips are moving!  Hah-hah-hahhhhhh!

Ok, yeah, it’s an old joke. Sadly for the nation, where San Fran Nan is concerned, it’s 100% true.

Monday afternoon, she told the Washington Post in an interview that she is opposed to moving to impeach President Trump, “unless (isn’t there always an “unless” or a “but” whenever any Democrat makes a “promise”?) there’s something so compelling and overwhelming and bipartisan” that it becomes unavoidable.

Pelosi is further quoted by The Hill thusly: “Impeachment is so divisive to the country that unless there’s something so compelling and overwhelming and bipartisan, I don’t think we should go down that path, because it divides the country.”

This is all just another lie from the most dishonest Speaker since Texas’s own Jim Wright held the office 30 years ago. All one must do to understand Pelosi’s lie in this instance is to spend 2 minutes analyzing the coordinated efforts the various committee chairmen who she appointed are lining up to do literally nothing over the next 18 months other than try to build a case for impeaching the President.

The execrable Jerry Nadler got that ball rolling a week ago when his House Judiciary Committee sent out subpoenas to the President and no fewer than 81 associates. Adam Schiff and Elijah Cummings, who chair the House Intelligence and House Oversight Committees, respectively, will follow with a raft of their own subpoenas by the end of this month.

The whole point of this tri-committee Witch Hunt is to build a case for impeachment that becomes “compelling and overwhelming” enough to provide congressional GOP squishes the cover they want to join in an effort to remove Mr. Trump from office. That’s what San Fran Nan’s “unless” phrase mentioned above is all about.

She’s against impeachment right now, but no one should think that in any way means she plans to lift a finger to stop it. To the contrary, she made the committee appointments she made specifically to get the most shameless partisan hacks possible atop those three committees.

That’s the truth. This is who Nancy Pelosi is, and how she operates.

That is all.

A National Reckoning is Coming on Russia Collusion

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

The great media retrenchment begins. – So, what if, as the rampant speculation around Washington and facts of the matter indicate, Gestapo Chief, er, “Special Counsel” Robert Mueller finds there was no collusion between President Donald Trump and Russia? ABC’s Terry Moran had this to say on his network’s “This Week” program yesterday:

“That’s a reckoning for progressives and Democrats who hoped that Mueller would essentially erase the 2016 election. It’s a reckoning for the media. It’s a reckoning around the country if in fact after all this time there was no collusion.”

I reckon he’s right. Which, come to think of it, is probably the first time I’ve reckoned that about the veteran news-faker.

And so, the great media retrenchment on this fantasy play begins in earnest. Moran’s statement – no doubt written well ahead of time and vetted with his ABC superiors before it was recited from memory on the set – is very carefully worded. Note how he separates the “progressives and Democrats who hoped that Mueller would essentially erase the 2016 election” from “the media,” as if they are two separate entities. Laughable, that.

The “media” – and ABC News is among the very worst offenders of the lot – has been deeply intertwined with the Democrats in this Russia Collusion fairy tale since day one. It is now a matter of public record that many fake journalists were involved in helping to set up the entire charade, carefully coordinating the timing of articles with Democrat strategists, as well as the messages that would be repeated on-air continuously and echoed throughout social media.

The truth today is as it always was from day 1: The contacts that the Trump Campaign and Transition Team had with various Russians were the sort that are typical for any viable presidential campaign. Even more to the point of proving the DOJ/FBI conspiracy to prevent Trump from winning in 2016, the only contacts with anyone outside of the norm were those that were with people like longtime FBI/CIA operative Stefan Halper, which were literally set up by that Deep State Cabal via what they called “Operation Crossfire Hurricane.”

Meanwhile, the Pantsuit Princess and her campaign were having all sorts of contacts that are not the standard kind at all. Like, for example, spending $10 million or so to have a British agent develop a fake “Trump Dossier” and working with well-known Russian spies in the process.

Remember all that?  Yeah, Terry Moran and his fellow news-fakers in the national media have done their dead-level best to ignore the actual facts involved in this fantasy play, choosing instead to constantly repeat the daily talking points approved by the DNC on the matter. But some of us have long memories.

You can expect Moran’s colleagues in the fake news media to embark on their own retrenchment campaigns this week, as they see the handwriting on the wall, and the Mueller Witch Hunt winds down to its inevitable close. But the reckoning will come, because most Americans aren’t nearly as stupid as people like Terry Moran assume they are.

Hey, at least most 16 year-olds are legal citizens, so we got that going for us. – In case you missed it, Democrats in the House of Representatives attempted last Wednesday to lower the legal voting age to … wait for it … 16!

Yes, friends, Democrats are so focused on obtaining political power that a majority of them in the U.S. House are willing to give voting rights to children whose main daily concern is where they misplaced their pimple medicine. The amendment failed by a margin of 126-305, but among Democrats alone, the vote was 125-108. So you can see where this is all headed.

That vote came two days before House Democrats voted as a solid bloc to confer voting rights to illegal aliens in communities, like San Francisco, where local officials have approved such dilution of the votes of actual citizens.

Again, as I’ve written 100 times before, Democrats’ preference for open borders and lax voting laws has literally nothing at all to do with things like compassion or human rights. It simply has to do with what always drives every policy position the Democrat Party takes, which is the acquisition and maintenance of political power.

The reason you see videos from 8-10 years ago of today’s Democrat supporters of open borders – Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, Chuck Schumer, Dianne Feinstein, and on and on and on – haranguing against illegal immigration is because those were the talking points dictated to them at the time by the leaders of organized labor. But about the time Obama got elected to the presidency, the Democrat Party made the calculation that organized labor, as a voting bloc, was dying off, and that it could ultimately mine far more votes from all these illegal immigrants, either via voter fraud or, ultimately, conferring voting rights on them.

So the Democrat Party, as a whole, suddenly threw organized labor off the boat and started pushing open borders policies. It took organized labor until the 2016 elections to figure out it was the date that had been stood up for the prom, but its shifting votes towards the GOP side played a large role in Trump’s ability to carry states like Pennsylvania, Michigan and Ohio.

Today, we now see the Democrat Party making the very same political calculation on the Jewish vote, which it has always dominated. It is now quite obvious that Democrat leaders have made the calculation that its open borders policies will inevitably mean that Muslims will soon outnumber Jews in America, and thus, there will be more Muslim votes to be mined.

Which is why you saw the Dems completely unable to pass a simple resolution to condemn Ilhan Omar’s constant anti-Semitic hate speech last week.

None of this is hidden, folks. They’re doing this all out in the open, if you just pay attention.

That is all.
