Mike Pence is Right: Ilhan Omar Has no Place on the Foreign Affairs Committee

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

Why did it take so long? – It took a Brooklyn jury well over a week to come back with a verdict finding Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman guilty, at long last. What are they putting in the water in Brooklyn that made this so hard? Seriously, unless there was some serious jury tampering going on, how could there possibly be any reasonable doubt in anyone’s mind that one of the most vicious, brutal and guilty beasts on the face of the earth was on trial here?

At any rate, the brute will remain behind bars for a long, long time, most likely the rest of his sorry life, so at least justice was done in the end.  But damn, where was the doubt here?

Another no good terrible very bad day for the Enemy Within. – Minnesota’s radical Muslim Democrat Ilhan Omar had another bad, and frankly idiotic day on Capitol Hill on Wednesday, as the fallout from her anti-Semitic tweet storm on Monday continued.

First, a clever parliamentary maneuver by the GOP minority in the House forced a vote on a resolution affirming America’s support for Israel and condemning those who endorse “movements that deny Israel’s right to exist,” something Omar has done repeatedly in the past. The move caught Democrats by surprise, and the many anti-Semitic among them had to scramble to decide whether to reveal their true nature or vote “yes” on the language.

In the end, all those present decided to support the language, resulting in a 424-0 vote in favor. Amazingly, not one of the media outlets has chosen to report on the only real salient question here, which is how did the Enemy Within vote on the measure? After all, the House has 435 members, so 11 are unaccounted for in that 424 number. We know that two voted “present”, but what about the others? The fake news media appears incapable of finding out.  Amazing.

Regardless, the unanimous vote amounts to a clear rebuke of Omar and her fellow anti-Semites on Capitol Hill.

A little earlier in the day, the Enemy Within used a hearing of the House Foreign Affairs Committee – on which San Fran Nan has chosen to plant her – to ask Special Envoy to Venezuela Elliott Abrams completely off-topic “questions” that were really just accusations. The topic of the hearing was ostensibly the rapidly deteriorating humanitarian situation in the socialist utopia of Venezuela, but Omar decided this would be a great opportunity to hurl accusations and insults at Abrams about his supposed role in … wait for it … the IRAN CONTRA SCANDAL!

I kid you not, the Enemy Within is so depraved, so despicable, such a typical…well…such a typical Democrat that she spent her entire allotted 5 minutes reading insults at Abrams from a document someone else had written for her. Her performance was so juvenile and inappropriate that even the ultra-leftwing Daily Beast published a post condemning her actions.

Don’t misunderstand – I have no sympathy at all for Elliott Abrams, a war-mongering neo-con who should not have any role whatsoever in a Trump Administration, and am frankly befuddled why Secretary of State Pompeo chose him for what is supposed to be a “peace-making” role. But witnesses at any congressional hearing, regardless of their backgrounds or which political party happens to be in the majority, should expect committee members to stick to the supposed reason for the hearing in their questioning. And no witness should be expected to sit quietly by as a member of congress, conveniently exempt from the nation’s laws governing libel and slander, impugns their reputation with ad hominem attacks in a public hearing.

Granted, Omar’s behavior in yesterday’s hearing has become just par for the Democrat course over the past two years, but when you’re a Democrat and your behavior is so far out of accepted norms that you draw the condemnation of a leftwing lapdog fake media outlet like the Daily Beast, you have definitely gone too far.

More than anything else, Omar’s despicable behavior yesterday proves exactly how wrong it is for this Enemy Within to have a seat on the House Foreign Affairs Committee. Simply condemning her anti-Semitic remarks is not enough – Speaker Pelosi needs to take some real action where this garbage member of congress is concerned. As Vice President Mike Pence said on Tuesday, she should remove the Enemy Within from the Foreign Affairs Committee.

Warning: Don’t hold your breath waiting for that to happen. These are Democrats we’re talking about here.

That is all.

Trump to Newsom: We Want Our Rail Boondoggle Money Back!

The Evening Campaign Update
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Responding to the action taken on Tuesday by California Governor Gavin Newsom to cancel 2/3rds of Jerry Brown’s high speed rail boondoggle, President Donald Trump (how could anyone ever tire of typing those three glorious words?) issued a tweet at 7:29 CT demanding the federal government’s ill-considered subsidies of the fake green project back:

That’s right: The federal government (in an other president’s administration – you get one guess as to which one) is so absurdly wasteful that it actually looked a this disastrous waste of taxpayer money and said, “hey, we want a piece of that action!”, ultimately coming across with $3.5 billion in subsidies.

Now, the current POTUS wants the money back in his never-ending, singular focus to Make America Great Again.

Somebody go make some popcorn, because this is about to get good…

Why Ed Markey is Desperate to Avoid Voting on His “Green New Deal”

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

Oh. Why, nobody could’ve seen that coming. Oh, wait… – Useless North Carolina RINO Senator Richard Burr told the leering press yesterday that the incredibly mis-named Senate Intelligence Committee has found no evidence of “collusion” with Russia by the Trump Campaign, Trump Transition Team or Trump Administration. Go figure.

Like American Gestapo Chief, er, “Special Counsel” Robert Mueller, Senate Intel is winding down its fake investigation because there is no “there” there – never was, isn’t now, and never will be. Democrats and fake journalists who really bought into this fantasy play expressed their shock and dismay, but Burr and his partner in this fake investigation – Virginia Democrat Senator Mark Warner – are finally giving up the ghost and directing their committee to move onto greener pastures.

Hey, here’s an idea – maybe y’all can go back to doing your actual job and start exercising a little congressional oversight over the nation’s still-corrupt “intelligence” community. What a novel concept.

Sen. Ed Markey wants to “sponsor” the incredibly destructive “Green New Deal”… – but he just doesn’t want to “vote” for the incredibly destructive “Green New Deal.” That was the message sent out by the despicable Democrat from Massachusetts on Tuesday after Mitch McConnell told the press he is making plans to hold a vote on the hilariously inept congressional resolution that Alexandria Ocasio Cortez rolled out into the public domain last week.

“I’ve noted with great interest the Green New Deal,” McConnell said, “And we’re going to be voting on that in the Senate. Give everybody an opportunity to go on record and see how they feel about the Green New Deal.” In other words, the Senate Majority Leader wants to get every Democrat member in that body on the record supporting things like destroying the miracle of air flight, destroying the nation’s thriving oil and gas industry, making cars too expensive for all but the wealthy to afford and throwing the United States quickly into an economic depression that would make the 1930s look like a walk in the park.

Sen. Markey wants none of that voting nonsense. He wants to be able to keep up his 30-year practice of being a rank demagogue on the “Global Warming” issue without actually having votes in favor of the invariably-Socialist/fascist “solutions” proposed by the fake “green” community dirtying up his record.

Thus it was that, shortly after McConnell made his promise to hold a vote, Markey issued this response that reeks of desperation:

“Don’t let Mitch McConnell fool you: this is nothing but an attempt to sabotage the movement we are building. He wants to silence your voice so Republicans don’t have to explain why they are climate change deniers. McConnell wants this to be the end, this is just the beginning.”

Yeah, it’s a “beginning” all right – Markey may or may not realize it just yet, but the roll-out of this creepy proposal to turn our country into just another starving, third-world socialist/fascist failed state is indeed the beginning of the end of the Democrat Party’s quest to regain the levers of power in Washington. Democrats have only managed to win elections over the past half-century by lying about their real beliefs and intentions. The Green New Deal removes that mask for all to see, and it is an incredibly ugly face that most Americans will never support.

So, in case you’re wondering, that is why Markey and other senate Democrats will do everything they can to avoid casting a vote on AOC’s incredibly destructive proposal.

Hey, maybe this is another reason… – You don’t have to believe me or any other conservative voice on how awful the Green New Deal really is – you could listen to the founder of the far-left eco-terrorist group “GreenPeace” if you want.

Patrick Moore, in an interview with the New American, basically characterized Markey’s proposal as a global suicide pact:  “It is quite amazing that someone that is in government — actually elected to the government of the United States of America — would propose that we eliminate all fossil fuels in 12 years,” he said in an on-camera interview with The New American from Canada. “This would basically result, if we did it on a global level, it would result in the decimation of the human population from 7-odd billion down to who knows how few people.”

Oh. Well, gosh, maybe it isn’t such a great idea, then.

Hold the vote, Mitch. Put these soulless ghouls on the record for posterity.

That is all.

Trump Should Sign the Bad Border Deal and Finish the Wall on His Own

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

Ok, the whole “black face” thing  just very predictably veered off into the theater of the absurd. – Semi-tone deaf pop singer Katy Perry fell into the “black face” controversy on Monday for no good reason at all, because of course she did.  Social media always takes any real issue like the one swirling around Virginia Democrats to the most ridiculous extremes possible.

Ms. Perry has attached her name to a line of shoes, and some, like those pictured above, have little eyes, nose and mouth glued onto them.  Sort of like something your 6 year-old granddaughter might design (trust me, I know about this first hand). Anyway, because the shoes pictured above happen to be black in color, a bunch of nitwits on Twitter desperate to be offended accused the singer of being a racist yesterday.

Never mind the fact that the line of shoes come in a variety of different colors – it’s only the black ones that are somehow offensive. Ms. Perry has yet to apologize, something she should never even consider doing in a million years. Because the truth is this: Had her line of shoes included a variety of colors, but not black ones, she’d have then been accused by the very same nitwits of discrimination. You all know that is true.

The people who know “Beto” best would rather go see Trump. Take this as an object lesson. – When the White House announced last Thursday that President Donald Trump would travel to El Paso for a political rally on Monday, Irish Bob O’Rourke, an El Paso native, quickly announced he would hold a “counter-rally” of his own.

Hearts began to flutter throughout our fake news media – as they always do whenever the cute ex-sheep suit-wearing punk rocker opens his mouth – as the wags began to rampantly speculate that their precious “Beto” would surely draw more people to his rally than the President would. After all, El Paso was his home town!  Why surely the people who know and love “Beto” best would turn out in mobs to hear his immaculate pronouncements!

Uh, well, no. That didn’t happen. Not even close. The fake news media did its best to cover it up, but the reality is that the President had an overflow crowd of 8,000 or so inside the arena in which he spoke, and another 20,000 or so standing out in the elements watching on large TV screens. Here’s a shot of a small part of that outdoor crowd:

Meanwhile, a few blocks down the road, only a couple of thousand showed up to listen to the city’s fake favorite son. It turns out that familiarity really does breed contempt.

But the reality won’t stop the fake news media from lying about it all anyway. The shameless fake newsers at The Week have a piece out this morning with this headline:  “Trump Seemed Very Interested in Beto O’Rourke’s Evidently Larger Crowd During His El Paso Rally,” thus deceitfully implying that Irish Bob actually drew more people than Trump did, something not even the most biased fake reporters on the scene attempted to claim.

How false is that headline?  Despite massively inflating O’Rourke’s actual turnout by a factor of seven or so, The Week’s own piece admits the Trump crowd was far larger:

Trump’s audience inside the coliseum was 6,500, at capacity, El Paso Fire Department public information officer Enrique Aguilar told the El Paso Times. “It might be 10,000 with the people outside,” watching on monitors. The rally O’Rourke spoke at, following a mile-long march, drew at least 7,000 people, The Texas Tribune reports.

Um, last time I looked, 10,000 is more than 7,000, even when those absurdly-faked numbers appear in a fake news publication like The Week.

Another bad deal on the border. – The very Swampy congressional negotiators announced a very, very, very bad “bi-partisan” deal on border security funding as President Trump was flying out to Texas on Monday. The “deal” includes just $1.375 for “border barrier” funding – because we mustn’t say “wall”, you know – far below the President’s $5.7 billion demand. It’s a lousy deal, negotiated by lousy Republican swamp rats and open-borders Democrats. The outcome was thus predictable.

If this smelly “deal” passes both houses of congress and is sent to his desk, the President has only three options that would preserve his electoral viability going into 2020:

  • Reject the bill, which means another fake partial government shutdown; or
  • Sign the bill and immediately announce either a national emergency declaration or, as White House Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney laid out on Sunday, that he will use his presidential authority to reallocate unused funds from the Defense, Homeland Security and other departmental budgets to fund the wall.

Appearing on Fox News Sunday, Mulvaney said:

“Any president can do this…There are certain funds of money that he can get to without declaring a national emergency and other funds that he can only get to after declaring a national emergency. The whole pot is well north of $5.7 billion.”

That is the path the President should take. The Democrats are desperate to force another shutdown in order to change the subject from racist, baby-murdering, women-assaulting Virginia Democrats, disastrous Green New Deals and anti-Semite Minnesota congresswomen. So they’ll be all too thrilled to deny more paychecks to those same 800,000 federal workers and cry their crocodile tears over them.

The President should not give them that gift when he has them so clearly on the defensive.

What President Trump cannot do is sign this atrocity of a “deal” and do nothing else on border security. More than any other element of his 2016 campaign, his promise to secure our Southern border is why he was elected. He cannot leave that promise unaddressed any longer and expect to be re-elected in 2020.

The time to act is now.

That is all.

The Democrat Party’s Descent Into Full-Throated Fascism is Now Complete

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

This was a really important week, and it is crucial that we all understand why. This was the week when the mask of socialist fascism came completely off the ugly face of the national Democrat Party, and there is no going back, hard though they will try.

Simply put, all the Democrats had to do over the next two years to have a real shot a regaining all levers of power in our nation’s capital was not be batsh*t crazy, and they couldn’t do it. They can’t help themselves. This is, after all, their true nature, and has been for almost a full century now, when communist loyalists began making real inroads into their ranks, our media and our educational system.

Prior generations of the party’s politicians were able to hide their real desires to turn our nation into just another failed socialist/fascist third world country behind an ever-evolving series of false talking points. But that has all been ripped away thanks to the all-consuming hatred of President Donald Trump (I never tire of typing those three glorious words) harbored by the latest collection misanthropes, racists, women-abusers, ageing Bolshevik grumps, fake Indians and mindless children who now represent the party in congress and Virginia’s state government.

It wasn’t just this week – the batsh*t craziness has been accelerating for a long time now. Anyone paying real attention recognized the Democrats’ lurch to full-fledged fascist thuggery with their creation and full endorsement of the Antifa movement in response to the 2016 election. That move was Adolph Hitler 101 for anyone who’s ever read a book about 1930s Germany. But still the party’s leadership and fake news media agents maintained the fiction that the old Bolshevik Bernie Sanders was some sort of outlier among its ranks, just an old grump – who’s really an “independent” after all – who just got lucky and caught a flukish wave of young voters in his challenge to the Pantsuit Princess in 2016.

But then came the catalyst – Alexandria Ocasio Cortez, a cute, 29 year-old unabashed socialist/fascist with a bright smile, a never-quiet mouth, and a middle-school backpack filled with half-baked socialist “ideas” lucked into a win in a Bronx congressional district and became an instant media star. This hopelessly ignorant but social-media-savvy cretin has increasingly become the “thought leader” – to the extent she can be credited with actually having “thoughts” – of the Democrat Party, and that has led to a growing competition among those who aspire to be the Democrat 2020 presidential nominee and other party leaders to see who can be the most leftist and thuggish among them.

Over the last two weeks we have had multiple Democrat presidential hopefuls endorse a 70% income tax rate, one endorse an even more punitive 90% rate, and another throw out the coup de gras, a clearly unconstitutional tax levied not on incomes, but on assets. To top it all off, another aspirant to the party’s nomination – Irish Bob O’Rourke – went so far as to publicly question the continued validity of the entire Constitution itself, a thought pretty much all Democrats have harbored in their minds but only expressed in hushed voices when among friends.

So the Party’s mask was already slipping, its elastic headband fraying at the edges from the constant strain of having to hold back its members’ true intentions for all these decades, when Ocasio Cortez dropped the figurative socialist/fascist Mother Of All Bombs into the public domain this past Wednesday night: Her “Green New Deal.” Oh, my. The mask didn’t just fall to the floor, it disintegrated like Humpty Dumpty, never to be put back together again.

Within hours of rolling her GND outline onto her congressional website, Ocasio Cortez’s paper version of the Bolshevik Revolution had attracted the endorsements of no fewer than 70 Democrat members of congress and almost all of the currently-announced presidential candidates. 43-year veteran of congress Ed Markey of Massachusetts went in whole-hog, announcing himself as a co-sponsor of this fake green Communist Manifesto.

After a fierce backlash from the public and in some parts of the media, someone – probably Nancy Pelosi – convinced Ocasio Cortez to pull the atrocity down from her website, and she and her staff have been out there for the last two days denying the thing was ever posted in the first place, because lying and scrubbing history is what socialist fascists do. But that action was, as they say, a day late and a dollar short – there is no going back from the crossing of that particular Rubicon.

So now, President Trump will be able to pound his opponents over the head with their full-throated endorsements of all the key elements of socialist fascism for the next 20 months, presenting American voters with the clearest choice they could possibly have between the America they’ve always known or a lurch into the same third-world status now enjoyed by the starving people of Venezuela.

It didn’t have to be this way – all the Democrats had to do was to not be batsh*t crazy. But hey, when you actually are batsh*t crazy, it’s really hard to keep up appearances.

That is all.

The Twitter Week In Review: Racist Dems, Green Frauds, State of the Union

The Twitter Week in Review
(Because The Campaign Never Ends On Twitter, Either)

[Here’s a review of the week just past taken directly from the @GDBlackmon Twitter feed. If this gets a good response, we might just make it a weekly feature.  Enjoy.]

It all started with a really tedious football game. Unfortunately, things only went downhill from there…

Sean Davis sums up the fake news media double standard on reporting sexual abuse scandals…

When you’re running for president and nobody notices…

But…but…but the fake news media and their Democrat masters assure me this is not an “emergency”…

In case you missed it because your fake news media buried the story…

Speaking of #fakenews, didja know that Columbus caused Climate Change?  *sigh*…

That time Democrats wouldn’t support a law banning the killing of live-born babies…

Wise lawyer advice: Never ask a question you don’t know the answer to in advance. Nobody informed Senator Spartacus Jazz Hands…

James Woods knocks another one right out of the park…

Brit Hume is worth following on Twitter as well…

Why yes, yes she is lacking in the most basic common sense…

Democrat hypocrisy, part 8,888…

And we’re just now getting to the State of the Union on Tuesday – what a week!

ICYMI, I live-streamed the State of the Union, and all the critics agreed it was epic…

Also, this happened, and Lieawatha had no good answer for it…

If @AOC has her way, the nation’s schools will soon be filled with girls with nicked-up legs from using those “safety” razors…

Trump just keeps waving that darn magic wand!

If you don’t follow Mollie Hemingway on Twitter, you’re doing Twitter all wrong…

I’m very tired of climate alarmism – can you tell?

This was also a thing…

Then that whole “Green New Deal” thing got dropped, and hilarity and embarrassment quickly ensued…

They told her to wear glasses because they’d make her look smarter.  They were wrong…

Hey, where are the unicorns?

San Fran Nan tried to change the subject…

…but it didn’t work…

Oh.

But hey, they fixed it!

Goebbels would have been so darn proud of this bunch…

And finally, the end came for the most embarrassing talking points document ever created by a federal officeholder..

But enough about that – let’s end this weekly review with an elected Democrat hilariously lying about socialism (which, come to think of it, is what the Green New Deal is all about, too)…

That is all.

As Absurd as it is, We Must Take This “Green New Deal” Very Seriously

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

Now that we’ve all had a chance to read Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s “Green New Deal” and recover from our hysterical laughter at the utter absurdity of it all…: – Make no mistake about it – this “Green New Deal”, as ridiculous and childishly-written as its talking points document is, represents a deadly serious threat to our nation’s future. Deadly serious.

The nation’s modern history is filled with example after example of the political left being laughed out of the room when rolling out similarly idiotic proposals, only to ultimately see those very same proposals be enacted into law years later, after our education system and fake news media had brainwashed another generation of children and young adults to believe it’s just a peachy idea. The best example is nationalized healthcare: The Pantsuit Princess was the target of harsh ridicule from all parts of society when she rolled out her byzantine plan for a government takeover of 1/7th of the national economy in 1993-94. But 16 short years later, America’s Worst Mistake – Barack Hussein Obama – signed a very similar plan into law.

Twenty years ago, virtually no one believed we’d ever see young people with male genitals and musculature be allowed to steal athletics trophies from young girls, but today that is happening all over the nation, and anyone who speaks up in defense of the young girls is demonized by the news media and Democrat politicians. Just a decade ago, those who predicted that we’d soon be seeing “women’s groups” like NOW remain studiously silent as radical Muslims were allowed by state and local governments to practice Sharia Law and female genital mutilation were ridiculed as being alarmist and “racist”. But today that is happening in many parts of the country with the full approval and sanction of the Democrat Party and these “women’s groups”.

Just a handful of years ago, anyone who predicted that a Democrat Speaker of the House would refuse to hold a vote on a pro-Israel congressional resolution for fear of offending the large and growing anti-Semitic segment of her caucus would have been laughed out of the room. But that is happening right now, in real time.

So if you think the Democrats aren’t deadly serious about this “Green New Deal,” you should back up and think again. An old, 43-year veteran of congress like Ed Markey didn’t sign on as AOC’s Straw Man (“if I only had a brain”) for her walk down the fake environmental Yellow Brick Road just for fun.

Ed Markey doesn’t even know what fun is anymore. He’s nearing the end of his time on this earth, and he has worked to turn the United States into a socialist/fascist state for his entire life.  If you think he is not serious about seizing your land and assets and printing 40 Trillion dollars in order to devalue our currency and turn America into just another third-world country, then you haven’t been paying attention to his career to date, and you must have also slept through the Obama years.

Yes, the “Green New Deal” is utterly, completely absurd, an unworkable fantasy concocted by demented and childish minds. Yes, as I pointed out last night, the plan rips the mask off of the true fascist nature of the global Green movement, but that global Climate Scam has made steady inroads into every aspect of our daily lives for 50 years now. Did you think they were going to just stop at some point?

We all need to remember that those demented and childish – and yes, evil in many cases – minds really believe their own bullsh*t.  These are minds that have been completely brainwashed into believing that the abject horse manure they’re slinging out into the public domain this week is going to … wait for it… save the world!  Literally.

So yes, by all means, laugh at these nitwits today and bathe them in the ridicule they have so richly earned. But also take them very seriously and remember that they – not you – own our nation’s education system and news media. No matter how crazy you know their ideas to be, remember that they will continue to deploy every asset at their disposal to brainwash the current and every succeeding generation of American school children into believing all of this nonsense until they reach that critical mass, that point in time when they will be able to force it all into official government policy.

In 1995, a very wise man told me that “all the pinks and reds have gone green.” Yesterday, all those pinks and reds shed their green facade for all to see. In doing so, they reveal that they, like Hillary Clinton in 1993, think they have already reached that critical mass and are convinced they can now reveal their true nature without paying a political price.

Laughing at them and ridiculing them is not enough: We must stop being timid and become bold in opposing them. Be bold, for the sake of your children and grandchildren.

That is all.

Beto O’Rourke Had Better Fish or Cut Bait Very Soon

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

Oprah meet Beto; Beto meet Oprah…: – With his window of opportunity to get into the Democrat Party’s 2020 presidential nominating race rapidly closing, Irish Bob O’Rourke, fresh off a 30-day hiatus so he could “find himself” for about the 27th time in his goofy life, cast about for the highest-profile, most reliable Democrat media shill he could locate for a televised interview, and landed the biggest shill of all – Oprah Winfrey.

Filled with incisive, hard-hitting questions like “are you the real deal?” and “what’s it going to take for you to say ‘yes, I’m doing it’?”, Oprah’s interview soft-balled and powder-puffed its way to getting the famous Texas loser-to-Ted-Cruz to finally admit that he’s “been thinking about running for president” (you don’t say!) and he would announce his decision “before the end of the month.”  Oh, sing hosannas to the heavens and pass the flan!

The taping of the Oprah/Beto interview took place in New York City, presumably because The Oprah couldn’t be bothered to travel to Irish Bob’s technical home town of El Paso, Texas, and will air on The Oprah’s OWN network on Feb. 16, at which time I’ll be watching Wheel of Fortune or something on the History Channel.

Here’s the thing for Irish Bob: If he’s going to get into this race, he needs to do it now or sooner.  Last month would have been better, actually. It’s hard to keep up with it all at this point, but there are already at least 10 Democrats in the race, with at least a dozen more to come, and the laggards are going to find it harder and harder to properly staff their campaigns and raise the money to pay them. O’Rourke is married to a woman who is the heiress to a fortune reportedly worth billions, but unless Irish Bob’s dad-in-law is ready to fund the primary effort, our sheep-suit-wearing, tonsil-televising hero had better get his fundraising machine cranked up before all the big money has been otherwise committed.

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.

But today, with our fake news media already competing to jump ahead in line to promote the likes of Kamala Harris – who really is a minority and a woman to boot, and as unqualified and fraudulent as any candidate could be – Irish Bob runs the risk of becoming just another pretty face in the crowd if he waits too much longer to jump into the fray.  He has to remember that when running for the Democrat nomination, the most important endorsement doesn’t come from governors or senators or the party’s other “elder statesmen”.

No, the most important endorsement in the Democrat race comes from the fake news media. He had that full endorsement in his race against Ted Cruz, with the entirety of the Texas media actively campaigning on his behalf, and national outlets like the New York Times and CNN doing everything they could as well.

But he has to remember that he was a ‘party of one’ in that race – the only Democrat running, which made him the media’s default pick. The fact that he was running against Senator Cruz, who the media despise as fiercely as any Republican not named Trump, also helped lead to all those fawning puff pieces declaring him to be the next “Kennedy”.

Irish Bob hopes to ultimately be running against the even more-detested-by-the-fake-media Donald Trump, but first he will be running against probably two dozen fellow demented and depraved Democrats. That means he will not only have to compete with the likes of Harris, the Commie, the Fake Indian and Crazy Joe Biden for fawning attention from the national media, he even has to compete with former San Antonio Mayor Julian Castro for the front page puff pieces in the Austin American Statesman and Texas Tribune.

His problem today is that he’s cut this interview with The Oprah, so he can’t announce until it has aired, because if you cross The Oprah, you are well and truly a dead man walking in Democrat politics. So that’s at least another 10 lost days, days that he could have and should have been using to build a campaign.

So here’s the deal: If you haven’t seen Irish Bob make a formal announcement of his candidacy by noon on February 17, then you should probably quit obsessing about him, because he’s just too indecisive to succeed in a race against the bunch of ethics-devoid cutthroats he’d be up against in the Democrat primaries.

February 17 is your day, Irish Bob.  Fish, or cut the damn bait.

That is all.

It Was a Bad, Bad Night for Democrat Women

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

Liz Cheney for the Win!: – GOP Congresswoman Liz Cheney of Wyoming properly summed up the behavior of the white-and-blue-clad Democrat women at last night’s State of the Union message with a single devastating tweet:

“Things my Democrat women colleagues wouldn’t clap for at tonight: America, freedom, free enterprise, law enforcement heroes, record low unemployment for women & minorities, the right of babies to live. Things they did clap for: themselves.”

During the hour and twenty-one minutes it took to deliver the speech, President Donald Trump was interrupted by standing ovations 104 times, according to Fox News’s count. Probably 90 of those were Republicans-only affairs, joined only by a few straggling Red State Democrats who stood only when they had prior permission from Chuck Schumer or San Fran Nan.

It is stunning that the Democrat women couldn’t bring themselves to applaud the record low unemployment for women the Trump economy has delivered over the last two years. They did manage to stand and cheer when the President mentioned the fact that 58% of the new jobs created the past two years had been filled by women – but the cheering was ironic in nature (as Democrat cheering for American greatness always seems to be these days), a celebration of the victories by a couple of dozen freshmen Democrat women last November, at least half of which were achieved by outright voter fraud.

As if to emphasize that last point, the Dems then rolled out Stacey Abrams, the failed Georgia gubernatorial candidate who benefited from massive voter fraud in her losing effort, to deliver their paint-by-the-numbers response to the President’s speech. Like every other such response delivered by a Democrat, if you removed the true passages from the text, the speech would remain 98% intact. In fact, if you overlaid Abrams’ recital over that delivered last year by an amazingly hoarse Joe Kennedy, they would almost be identical. The Democrat messages of envy-based socialism and environmental alarmism never seem to evolve.

They just keep doubling down on the lies and brainwashing, which coincidentally is also what the Nazis did in Germany back in the 1930s.

Irony was everywhere last night. – Hey, I wonder if Alexandria Ocasio Cortez and her fellow raging anti-semites Rashida Tlaib and Ilhan Omar were comfortable with the fact that their white-on-blue attire just happened to reflect the colors of the flag of … wait for it…ISRAEL.

Ooops.

Irony was everywhere last night, Part II. – This photo is perfect and really needs no explanation in light of recent events:

 

Man, the #Fakenews outlets have a big job of turning public opinion around today… – Viewer reaction polls taken in the wake of the speech by CBS News and CNN showed that viewers approved of the President’s message by 76% and 59%, respectively. You can bet the DNC/fake news media joint talking points monkeys had a sleepless night last night.

Like Morning Mika once said, telling people what to think isn’t President Trump’s job, it’s the fake news media’s job.

Fauxcahontas Update! – If you thought Senator Little Mouth Always Running had weathered her Fake Indian storm and lived to tell about it, think again.

Below is her application to be admitted to the State Bar of Texas, which she filed in 1986, claiming her “race” to be “American Indian.” This little bit of fraud was tweeted out by Washington Post reporter Amy Gardner about an hour and a half before the President began his speech last night. No wonder our fake Indian princess had such a concerned look on her face throughout the evening:

Oof.

The most amazing part of this is that the Washington Post actually released this latest piece of Warren fraud rather than sitting on it like they normally do for their favored Democrats. This can only mean that the Democrat Party/Fake news media Axis of Disinformation has decided that Fauxcahontas is a sure loser in 2020 and wants her gone.

While that’s a noble goal, the problem for the American people is she’ll just be replaced by some other outright fraud like Kamala Harris or Irish Bob O’Rourke.

But hey, this is the Democrats we’re talking about here, so of course that will be the case.

That is all.
