Pro Tips for Election Night Results-Watching

The Evening Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

[I will be live-blogging the mid-term election results here starting at 6:00 p.m. Central Time Tuesday.  Please join me in the comments section for tons of fun as the results either make me look like the smartest guy on the planet or a damn fool.  Could go either way.]

Some pro tips for Election Night Results-Watching:

  • We may have a very good idea on how the House balance of power will end up fairly early in the evening. – A large number of the “tossup” seats in this election are in closely-divided districts in Florida, Virginia, New York and Pennsylvania, all in the Eastern time zone.  So, by 8 p.m. Central Time, we should have a pretty good idea of what the trend in those districts is, or if there is no trend at all.
  • There aren’t many other key House districts in the Central or Mountain time zones. – Once you get out of the states on the Eastern Seaboard, you only have a handful of key House districts until you get to California, where the Democrats are heavily contesting 10 remaining GOP-held seats.  If the Ds haven’t clinched the majority in the House by the time polls close in California, it’s going to be a long night.  If they have, the state loses its importance in the grand scheme of things, though it will still be interesting to see if Rs like Dana Rohrabacher can hang in there for one more term in office.
  • If the House goes early, the Senate probably will, too. – Here is where Florida is such a key.  The Republicans are going to end up at least 60,000 votes ahead of 2016 in the early voting results.  Trump won Florida by 117,000 votes in 2016, so if you add 60,000 to that, you get a fairly high hill for incumbent Democrat Bill Nelson to climb in his run for re-election against sitting GOP Governor Rick Scott.  If we see Scott losing this race by, say, 5% or more when the early returns come in, then that will likely mean it’s going to be along night for the GOP.  If we see Scott keeping it closer than that in the early returns, that means good news for Republicans is probably going to be coming in all night long.
  • Georgia’s governor’s race is also key. – This race shouldn’t be as close as the polls claim it is.  If the early returns show a neck-and-neck race here, then you can probably expect a pretty late night overall.
  • Don’t be surprised if Irish Bob O’Rourke leads Ted Cruz early in Texas. – The major metro areas in Texas lean Democrat as a whole, and their returns always come in earlier than the rural counties.  Hillary Clinton led Donald Trump by ~160,000 votes when the early voting was reported at 7:00 by the Secretary of State’s office.  But then the rural counties started to come in and that more than reversed.  In total, rural Texas went for Trump by more than 1 million votes in 2016.  Expect to see a similar dynamic in this race.
  • Ignore leaked “exit polls.” – At some point around mid-day, one more more major media outlets will report on “leaked” exit poll information showing Democrats well ahead and moving towards their long-coveted “blue wave.”  Ignore those reports.  First of all, these “exit polls” are commissioned by those same damn media outlets, and the “leaks” are designed to depress GOP turnout on Election Day.  They’ve been playing this despicable game since 2000.  The good news is, it never works.
  • It’s Ok to watch CNN. – Aside from the obvious benefits of seeing all the long faces over there if the Republicans have a good night, John King was actually much better and more even-handed at reporting on results and trends than anyone else on Election Night 2016.  Fox News was actually the worst place to be on Election Night 2016, as they focused far more on giving everyone with a contributor contract time to weigh in on stuff they know nothing about than on actually reporting on election results.  Thus, Fox News was among the last to recognize the reality that Trump was actually about to win.
  • Whenever Juan Williams or Shep Smith appear on your TV screen, change channels. – Trust me, it’s better for your blood pressure.
  • Pace yourself on your favorite beverage. – Don’t hit the juice too hard early, because it could be a long night, just like 2016.  And don’t break out the champagne too early like all the Democrats did two years ago – it’ll go flat in just a few hours, and that’s never good.

Personally, I’ll be drinking Tito’s and Topo Chico with a twist of lime and a couple of cubes of sugared ginger root – my own personal Texas Mule recipe.  If Florida goes bad early, that’ll probably start showing up in my updates around 8:30 Central Time.

Be careful out there.

That is all.

Vote Republican. It’s Your Civic Duty.

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Hey!  There’s an election tomorrow!  I will be live-blogging it here starting at 6:00 p.m. Central Time.  Please join me in the comments section for tons of fun as the results either make me look like the smartest guy on the planet or a damn fool.  Could go either way.

Get out and vote for Republicans. – If you haven’t already done so, get your sorry butt out to the polls tomorrow and vote Republican.  Period.  There is nothing to think about here.  Just find that “Straight Republican” button and hit it. Oh, and then wait and watch to make sure that your voting machine then populates the votes properly, because we have had reports of things not working properly (imagine that).

And yes, vote the straight Republican ticket, regardless of where you live.  I’m in Texas, as most of you know by now, and this is the easiest decision we’ve ever had.  I’m a ticket-splitter from way back, but way back was when there were still decent people running for office as Democrats.  No more.

Anyone who buys into today’s Democrat agenda, which includes stuff like Antifa, assaulting Trump supporters in public places, rampant voter fraud, single-payer healthcare, raising your taxes and open borders, is not a decent person.  Sorry, they just aren’t.  They might be good fathers, loving mothers and otherwise good citizens, but if they support the Democrat agenda, they can no longer be described as decent human beings. That’s what 25 years of running the party on the principles of Saul Alinsky has done for them.

If you have a problem with any Republican candidate, just remember that his or her opponent is a Democrat, and your problem becomes no problem at all. Democrats are not allowed anymore to be independent operators. A guy like Irish Bob O’Rourke is promising to go to Washington and buck the system, becoming an “independent voice” for Texans.

The truth is that Irish Bob would become the de facto third senator from New York as Chuck Schumer leads him around by the nose, telling him not only how to vote on every issue, but also which approved talking points to recite during his appearances on CNN and MSNBC. Hell, if you’re Joe Manchin, Schumer even dictates which lines at the State of the Union speech you can stand and applaud.  Manchin’s a three-term incumbent – you think a rookie from Texas is going to be treated any better?

The same goes for Colin Allred, the guy running against GOP incumbent congressman Pete Sessions.  Allred is a very good-looking and articulate guy, promising to go to Washington and challenge San Fran Nan at every turn on behalf of Texans. The truth is that San Fran Nan would have him wrapped around her crooked little finger about 5 minutes after he lands at Reagan National Airport.  Because Democrats march in lockstep on every issue. Period.

So, if you’re thinking about voting for O’Rourke or Allred, think again.  They’re Democrats.  If you’re thinking of voting for the Democrat (whomever it is) running against George P. Bush for Texas Land Commissioner because you don’t like Bush’s plan to turn the Alamo and surrounding grounds into a glorified amusement park, well, join the crowd.  But do you think the Democrat has a better idea?  Seriously?  What would that be – to turn it over to the federal Department of the Interior for safe keeping?

C’mon, man.  Be serious.

In the past two years, America has embarked on an almost unprecedented period of relative peace in the world and economic growth. The Trump Administration has reasserted American authority at the United Nations, NATO and all the various G-7, G-20 and whatever other G-something or other summits there are these days. The horrendous turmoil in the Middle East that resulted from the Obama-sanctioned “Arab Spring” has been greatly calmed and ISIS has been largely destroyed.

The Crazy Little Fat Guy over in North Korea hasn’t fired a missile in hostility in many months, and his main interactions with the U.S. these days involve requesting more meetings with the Secretary of State and other U.S. representatives to get approval for his next step toward decommissioning his country’s nuclear capabilities.

Russia, which invaded Crimea, Syria and the Ukraine during the Obama years, hasn’t invaded anyone since January 20, 2017.  This is not a coincidence.  China has been helpful with the Trump approach to North Korea, and now appears ready to make a real trade deal after five months of escalating “trade war” with the United States has begun to damage its economy.

So, after you’ve had a couple of cups of coffee and showered tomorrow morning (yes, please shower for everyone’s sake), go vote.  For Republicans.  Straight ticket.  It’s not just the right idea, it’s your duty if you love this country.  It’s the easiest decision you’ve ever had.

And now, for some final predictions:

The Republicans will gain a net 4 senate seats, defeating McCaskill in Missouri, Heitcamp in North Dakota, and some combination of Tester in Montana, Manchin in West Virginia, Nelson in Florida and Donnelly in Indiana.  They will lose some combination of Heller in Nevada or McSally in Arizona.  The net of all of that will be a 4-seat gain and an overall 55-seat majority for the next two years.

In the House, the Republicans hold onto their advantage, losing a net 15 seats.

That’s where I’ve been since January, and I see no reason to change now.

In some specific high-profile races:

Irish Bob “Beto” O’Rourke’s $80 million campaign will buy him 45% of the vote in his race against Ted Cruz.  Four years ago, $30 million got Wendy Davis 39% of the vote.  So, if the Democrats can throw about $125 million behind some chosen golden child in 2022, they might actually win a race in Texas.

But this year, Republicans will win every statewide election in Texas, as they have done in every statewide election cycle since 1994.

Republican Brian Kemp will win 52% of the vote in the Georgia governor’s race, just enough to avoid a runoff there.

In Florida, the early voting is tilting very nicely for the Republicans, who always have a significant voting edge on Election Day.  Based on that, I think Ron DeSantis will eke out a very narrow win in the governor’s race over Democrat/socialist Andrew Gillum there.

Again, I’m either going to look like a genius or a damn fool come Wednesday morning, but we’ll have fun tomorrow night regardless.
That is all.

The Week in Review: No Good Deed By Donald Trump Goes Unpunished

The Campaign Update Week in Review

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

President Donald Trump was in both Montana and Florida for rallies on Saturday.  Think about that for a minute:  He’s based in Washington, D.C.  He gets up in the morning, gets his daily security briefing, then hops on Marine One – after chatting with the hostile fake news media for a little bit – which takes him to Joint Base Andrews.

There, he boards Air Force One for the 5-hour flight out to Belgrade, Montana.  He spends an hour speaking to an audience of thousands of Montanans – with thousands more watching on large video screens outside the venue – then he hops back on Air Force One for the 2,000 mile, 5-hour flight down to Pensacola, Florida.

There, he again spends an hour speaking to thousands of Floridians, with a huge crowd of thousands more gathered outside, and then hops back on Air Force One for the 1-hour flight to his resort at Mar-a-Lago.  Presumably, he got some sleep there.

This is a 72 year-old man.  By the way, this is a 72 year-old man who works for free.  He donates his presidential salary every quarter to a different worthy cause, an act of generosity that goes unreported by our fake news media.

While Democrats, their agents in the fake news media and even many of his Republican colleagues bitch and moan about him spending too much time at Mar-a-Lago and the other properties he owns on weekends, the fact of the matter is that most normal men his age and wealth status would be spending all of their time playing golf while the kids take over the family business.  Instead, Donald Trump is spending his time presiding over a nation experiencing a booming economy and relative peace and stability in the world.

For delivering all of that, he has been rewarded with 92% negative fake media coverage, hostile and violent rhetoric coming from all corners of pop culture and the education establishment, unending assassination threats from entertainers and social media, and a special counsel investigation that has now lingered on for 17 months.

Our nation has an odd way of rewarding all this WINNING.

Trump in Montana:  Purple mountains majesties above the fruited plain!

 

 

Let’s go to the Week in Review:

  • It was the week that one of Brett Kavanaugh’s Democrat-recruited accusers admitted not only that she lied to the Senate Judiciary Committee, but that she has in fact never even met Justice Kavanaugh.  If you’re surprised by this, you haven’t been paying attention.
  • It was the week that leftist lawyers for a dozen “migrants” who have never set foot in the United States of America were allowed to file a lawsuit in federal court against a sitting President.  Because, rights, or something.
  • It was the week that a campaign staffer for Democrat Andrew Gillum was arrested for throwing her milk at a group of college Republicans.  Because, hey, this is what the media has empowered her to do.
  • It was the week that multiple staffers for Irish Bob O’Rourke were caught on video illegally using campaign funds to send money to the “migrant caravan” in Mexico, and the Texas news media shamed itself by parrotting the O’Rourke campaign’s talking points and ignoring the video evidence.  Again, if this surprises you, you haven’t been paying attention.
  • It was the week the fake news media completely forgot about that Khashoggi guy, and so did every other American.
  • It was the week that the Democrats and their media agents mounted a coordinated effort to define any effort to criticize the despicable, anti-American, anti-Israel George Soros as “anti-Semitic” hate speech.  Holy crap.
  • It was the week that Democrat Supreme Court Justice Sonya Sotomayor said in one breath that she often would have used a baseball bat on the late Antonin Scalia if she had had one handy, but in the next breath said that “differences don’t stand, necessarily, on ill will.”  I swear I don’t make this stuff up.
  • It was the week this happened:

*sigh*

  • It was the week a former high-profile campaign worker for Barack Hussein Obama was arrested for spraying anti-Semitic graffiti and attempting to burn down a Jewish Synagogue, and the fake news media studiously ignored his connection to the former President:

  • It was the week garbage human being Alec Baldwin got arrested, yet again:

  • It was the week President Trump re-instituted all previous sanctions on Iran and added a few more.  This came after two days of fake media reports that his Administration was backing off of most of them.  Fake news, defined.
  • It was the week that Morning Joe guest pinhead Donny Deutsch actually said that Donald Trump was elected to the presidency because “I don’t think we were ready for a black president.” Quick:  Someone tell Donny that we actually elected a black president, TWICE.  My goodness.
  • It was the week that this happened:

Are there really real, actual Texans who care what John Brennan thinks about our senate race?  Really???
  • It was the week that CNN fake host Don Lemon told America – or, well, the tiny little sliver of leftist America that still watches CNN – that our biggest terror threat is “white men,” and CNN’s management endorsed his statement.  Again, if this surprised you, you need to pay closer attention.
  • It was the week we discovered that MSNBC’s Katy Tur is, um, geographically-challenged:

  • It was the week that CNN morning host Alyisin Camerota’s tiny little brain exploded when a guest didn’t follow the narrative:

  • It was the week that fake pollsters, on the same day in Arizona, gave us results that said Democrat Kyrsten Sinema was leading by 4 points and Republican Martha McSally was leading by 7.  And some of you wonder why I have a negative view of our nation’s polling industry.
  • It was the week that the editorial board at the Houston Chronicle beclowned itself by endorsing Irish Bob O’Rourke in his race against Ted Cruz because O’Rourke plays well with others.  *sigh*
  • It was the week that this happened:

There was so much more, but I’m running out of energy here.  After all, I’m not a 72 year-old guy who works for free.
That is all.

Trump Creates The Most Amazing Jobs Report In American History

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Sitting here on a Saturday morning wondering when Oprah and Barack are going to go up to Michigan to campaign on behalf of the single most-qualified candidate for the U.S. senate running anywhere in this election.  That would be John James, a black man, who is running against the execrable Debbie Stabenow, a white woman.

Ok, silly me – James is a Republican, so he doesn’t qualify as being “black” in the world of Oprah and Barack.

Speaking of America’s Biggest Mistake… – A day after the Oprah campaigned on behalf of Florida gubernatorial candidate Andrew Gillum, Barack Hussein Obama was down in the Sunshine State doing the same thing before an audience of dozens of Floridians.

As is Obama’s habit whenever campaigning in the South, he spent his entire speech trying like hell to sound like a southern black guy.  Take a listen to the fake accent here:

 

Just unbelievable, shameful pandering.  But that’s our Barack!

A human dumpster fire walks into a bar.  The bartender looks up and says, “What’ll it be, Alec Baldwin?” –  Washed-up actor and horrible father Alec Baldwin was taken to jail in New York City yesterday.  Again.  How many times is this?  Not sure.  But he always gets off, presumably because of white privilege, or something.

Anyway, he got into a dispute with a guy over a parking spot, because, hey, we all know how tough it is to find parking in Manhattan, thanks to reruns of Seinfeld.  The C-list actor had had a relative holding the spot for him as he prepared to back into it, but the victim pulled into the spot first.  Baldwin, being the demented hot-head that he truly is, jumped out of his car and punched the guy as he was feeding the parking meter.

Hilarity ensued.  No doubt the writers at Saturday Night Live have already come up with an extremely not-funny skit about it for tonight’s show, with Baldwin playing himself.  Because that’s how our depraved entertainment industry works.

Just wait until we find out Christine Ford never met Brett Kavanaugh, either. – Judy Munro-Leighton, one of the women who accused Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh of being a rapist last month, has recanted her story and admitted she never even met the man.  Guess she’s pissed that she didn’t get her own million-dollar GoFundMe account from the Democrats who planned the whole smear operation.

For her troubles, she does get her own personal criminal referral authored by Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley, so she’s got that going for her.  This was the third such referral Grassley has sent over to the Department of Justice in the last 10 days, and no one should think for a minute that he is done here.  Every one of the women who accused Kavanaugh was lying, and if we ever get a real attorney general into office, they might all end up serving time in federal prisons.

Speaking of news the fake New York Times and CNN will ignore… – We had possibly the single most stunning jobs report in American history on Friday.  Yes, the 250,000 new jobs was amazing; yes, the 3.7% rate of unemployment is fantastic; yes, the 3.1 real wage growth is terrific, the strongest in more than a decade. A new record 156,562,000 Americans employed?  Almost unbelievable.  Black unemployment?  An all-time low.  Hispanic unemployment?  An all-time low.  Female employment?  An all-time high.

But the most amazing part of this amazing report?  Not one, single, solitary industry in the United States of America suffered a net loss in jobs.  Not one.  Retail jobs? Up.  Manufacturing jobs?  Up.  Mining jobs?  Up.  Industrial jobs?  Up.  On and on it went, throughout every single segment of the most diverse and massive economy in the history of civilization.

Barack Obama was happy to destroy U.S. manufacturing jobs and ship them overseas, telling Americans that they were old-style jobs that were never coming back.  The Trump economy just created more than 1,000 new manufacturing jobs every DAY during October.  Every DAY.  This happened during a time in which all the “experts” predicted the Trump trade dispute with China would result in a net loss in manufacturing jobs.  Oops.  So much for “experts.”

Back in December, I wrote that the biggest economic problem our country would face in 2018 would be finding enough people to fill all the jobs that would result from the passage of the Trump tax cuts.  Today, after this incredible jobs report, employers have more job openings than we have qualified applicants looking to fill them.  I’m 62 years old – this has never happened in my lifetime.

Enjoy it while you can – next time we elect a Democrat to the presidency, it’ll all come to a crashing end.

That is all.

Update:  Just found some stunning numbers I wanted to share with my readers, courtesy of GOP Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel:

Vote Republican on Tuesday.  This is the easiest decision we have ever had.

Are You Ready For “Beto 2020”? You Should Be.

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Fake Beto supports the fake “migrant caravan” with real campaign funds. –  Project Veritas released a new video overnight that shows staffers for Irish Bob O’Rourke illegally using campaign funds to pay for transportation and supplies for the fake “migrant caravan” that is slowly making its way up through Mexico.

Here are a few quotes from staffers that appear in the video:

  • “I just hope nobody that’s the wrong person finds out about this,” says one staffer about sending supplies to the caravan members.
  • “It’s f***ing happening.” exclaims a staffer when discussing the use of Pre-Paid Cards for Honduran Alien Supplies.
  • “Don’t ever repeat this…” Campaign Staffers explain how to hide campaign expenditures for aliens
  • If you get caught in some sort of violation that’s like a $50,000 fine,” “For me I can just ignore the rules and I’m like f**k it.”
  • Transporting Aliens to “airports… bus stations,” “None of this is like sh*t there is a rulebook for”

This is your Democrat Mob in action, folks.  Expect Irish Bob to claim he barely knows these staffers and had no knowledge of their illegal activities today.  Then he’ll attack Project Veritas, because that’s the standard Democrat playbook in these situations.

Vote Republican.  It’s the easiest choice you ever had.

Speaking of Irish Bob…are you ready for “Beto 2020”? – Everyone does know Irish Bob is planning to run for the presidency, right?  He’s raised $80 million in this campaign, and is still raising more today.  Do you think he’s really spending it all on this senate race that he was always destined to lose? Please.

Here’s what we’re going to find out a few weeks after the election has come and gone: He’s going to have $20 million or more still sitting in the bank, which will conveniently serve as a very nice little nest egg to help kick off a run for the 2020 Democrat nomination.  Think I’m crazy?  Just watch.

Consider this: This guy has been raking in the money from demented Democrat donors all over the country for a year now. You don’t think the big money people have been telling him he has national potential and urging him to give it a shot? What do you think all those fawning “he’s just like a Kennedy!” profiles in national leftwing publications like the New York Times and Washington Post have been all about?

There’s this perception that he’s too young, mainly because most people don’t realize that he’s only one year younger than his opponent, Ted Cruz.  Cruz was plenty old enough to make a very strong run in 2016, coming in second out of a field of seventeen candidates.

Also, consider the playing field Irish Bob would be facing: It’s a lineup of crazy old coots like the Pantsuit Princess, the Commie, Crazy Uncle Joe and Fauxcahontas, combined with already-damaged and horrifically unqualified young up-and-coming “stars” like Spartacus Booker and Kamala “The Interrupter” Harris. Toss in the Creepy Porn Lawyer for good measure, and you have a collection of miscreants unlike any political party has ever managed to put together in American history.  Slotted in amongst that field, a young-ish congressman from Texas who can ride a skateboard and play guitar might look pretty appealing to the ignorant Democrat voter base.

So, don’t think that Irish Bob is going to just ride off on his skateboard into the sunset after he gets his butt kicked next Tuesday. He’s going to be a big thing in Democrat national politics for some time to come.

The fake “migrant caravan” jumps the shark. – A dozen of the thousands of “migrants” being paid by leftwing interests like the O’Rourke campaign to walk up through Mexico actually filed a lawsuit in federal court against President Trump on Thursday.

Ok, well, the “migrants” themselves didn’t file the suit – it was actually filed by a bunch of leftist lawyers on their behalf.  You have to go all the way down to the 11th paragraph in the story filed at the Fox News website to find that little fact out – it probably won’t be mentioned in stories filed by CNN and the New York Times.

Anyway, this bunch of leftist lawyers calls themselves “Nexus Derechos Humanos (Human Rights) Attorneys Inc.”, and their argument is predictably tiresome:

“Federal law enables migrants to apply for asylum in the United States. President Trump and his administration have used ‘increased enforcement,’ like separating families and lengthening detention to violate migrant rights,” Mike Donovan, president of Nexus Services, said in the release.

To be clear, President Trump has to this point actually take no action whatsoever targeting this fake “caravan”, other than to issue a bunch of threats and sending troops to the border in preparation for their arrival.  So the lawsuit is at this point purely speculative in nature, and it would be absurd for any real judge to even agree to hear it.  But the lawyers will no doubt be able to find an Obama appointee to do their dirty work.

To the extent ordinary Americans out here in Flyover Country learn about this action, it will only serve to infuriate them and turn them even more against this fake “caravan” than they already have been.  It’s just another stupid, abusive action taken by anti-American leftists that will end up increasing GOP turnout in this election.

Bottom line:  We are now to the point of absurdity in our judicial system that a group of foreign nationals who are somewhere between 800 and 1000 miles away from arriving at our southern border and may never actually arrive there, are suing the President of the United States over “abuses” of our idiotic immigration laws that may or may not ever take place.  Mind you, these are people who have already violated international law by refusing to accept the asylum that has already been generously offered to them by the first foreign country they entered, Mexico.

But nevermind the law – these are leftist-funded crisis actors we’re talking about here, so they get to abuse the U.S. court system as they please.  Because, America.

*sigh*

This Election is the Easiest Decision Americans Have Ever Faced

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Fake news media declares Luis Bracamontes to be a “race”. –  President Trump tweeted out a video on Wednesday featuring admitted, convicted multi-murderer Luis Bracamontes on Wednesday, and naturally our fake news media immediately declared the President’s tweet to be the worst thing any person in the history of mankind has ever done.  This declaration becomes the 14,982nd time President Donald Trump (I never tire of typing those glorious words) has done something that our fake news media has declared to be the worst thing any person in the history of mankind has ever done.  You’d think they might find a different approach after 3 years of abject failure, but these are not the smartest people in the world here.

You may remember Mr. Bracamontes: He murdered two sheriff’s deputies and wounded another in California in 2014. The murders were of course committed after he had illegally entered the country and been deported after committing other crimes multiple times during the Bush and Obama Administrations.  So, your basic model citizen in the sanctuary state of California.

The Bracamontes case became famous when he was filmed laughing during his trial and loudly bragging that he wished he had killed more people. He also shouted at one point that “I will break out soon and I will kill more, kill whoever gets in front of me … There’s no need for a f—— trial.” You know, just one of the poor, downtrodden types who Democrats blame on white guys, or more recently, white women.

The ad the President tweeted intersperses video of Bracamontes and his boyish hijinks with cuts of the fake “migrant caravan” breaking down border gates and throwing rocks and bottles at law enforcement as it forced its way into Mexico, and correctly warns that this caravan – which the fake media itself now admits is comprised of roughly 85% military aged males – probably contains many more Bracamontes-types in its midst. It also correctly blames the current insane state of our country’s immigration laws on the Democrat Party.

There is nothing “racist” about this ad, which happens to be a presentation of reality. Most of the people in this fake “migrant caravan” that someone on the political left is funding and organizing are good, harmless people.  But the Border Patrol knows that any mass of people coming across our southern border is going to be infiltrated by a certain percentage of gang members and people from terrorism-promoting nations. This is the reality that the Democrat Party desperately wants us all to ignore.

Here’s the President’s tweet containing the ad:

Watch it for yourself. If you think it’s racist, tell me about it below.

So, Andrew Gillum will be attacking Project Veritas today. – Project Veritas released video late Wednesday of campaign staffers for Andrew Gillum making some pretty unfortunate remarks. Some of the remarks might even be considered to be “racist” by people who understand what the word means:

The guy calling Florida a “F***ed up” “cracker state” is a campaign staffer for Gillum who has also been a friend of the Democrat gubernatorial candidate since they went to college together.  Expect Gillum to respond today that he barely knows the guy and to attack Project Veritas, because that is always the strategy the Democrats employ when faced with revelatory videos like this one.

 

Meanwhile, out in fake media Beto-land… – The editorial board at the Houston Chronicle very predictably endorses Irish Bob O’Rourke on the absurd theory that he plays nice with others:

This is the reasoning of a kindergarten teacher.  How embarrassing.

Yes, Texans, if you want a senator who will represent the values of California and play nice with Chuck Schumer, vote for Irish Bob O’Rourke.

Unreal.

Meanwhile, in the real world, these things are happening:

Donald Trump and his administration did that.

Donald Trump’s economy is booming.  Barack Obama, whose policies Irish Bob supports, had written off those mining, construction and manufacturing jobs, telling the nation “those jobs are never coming back.”

They’re back.

Donald Trump and his administration did that.

This election is the easiest decision Americans have ever had. You can either go vote based on the kindergarten report card-logic promoted by the Houston Chronicle’s vacuous board of editors, or you can go vote to preserve the peace and prosperity that have been created by the current presidential administration and congress.

This isn’t hard.  Vote Republican.

That is all.

Halloween on Twitter: Political Mayhem, Fake News Zombies and Belly Laughs

The Evening Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

One of my Twitter followers sent me a private message today asking “how can you vote for some of these Republicans?” Seriously? You have to ask me that?

My answer was very simple: “Because they aren’t Democrats.” That was several hours ago, and I haven’t heard back from this person. Frankly, I expect she will un-follow me by the end of the day.

But look, why would I or any other thinking person ever vote for another Democrat? It’s a serious question. This is a political party that has over the last three years done everything it can to normalize the most reprehensible anti-American behaviors.

From shooting up Republican softball practices to accosting septuagenarians and their wives in restaurants to Antifa goons beating up people on the streets to CNN talk show hosts dog-whistling approval of potential presidential assassins to rounding up women to try to destroy the family and life of a Supreme Court nominee, if they think it might gain them even a momentary political advantage, Democrats are for it no matter how dangerous, destructive, depraved and despicable it might be.

I’m going to vote for that?  Really?  No, thanks.

Nor am I going to cast a vote to take this country back to the overregulated, moribund economy we had prior to November 9, 2016. I’m not going to vote to lop 25% off of the Dow Jones Industrial Average and 2% off of our economic growth rate. I’m not going to vote to put our country back into an irresponsible, un-American agreement with the Mullahs in Iran, or to re-engage us in a Paris “Climate” deal that was really nothing but a global wealth redistribution scheme targeting the American middle class.

Sorry, I’m not down with any of that, and I never will be.

And don’t try to convince me that I can vote for some particular Democrat for congress because he/she would get to Washington and be an “independent voice for Texas” or whatever other nonsense Democrats like Irish Bob O’Rourke are using in their campaign ads.  Give me a break here.  Irish Bob would get to Washington and become the third senator from California.  He’d be Chuck Schumer’s most reliable vote in the U.S. Senate.

Likewise, any Democrat who gets elected to the House of Representatives will be so bullied around by Nancy Pelosi within their first 2 weeks in D.C. that they’ll have literally forgotten where their congressional district even is, much less do anything effective to represent it.

Anyway, that was the bad part of Twitter today, but there was all sorts of fun on that platform as well.  Here follows a selection of the best examples of the day.

 

It’s a great question, and I’m glad Sara Carter asked it:

Speaking of great questions, Mollie Hemingway asks another one here…:

 

Hey, remember when Netflix signed that deal with the Obamas that allows them to produce series for its streaming platform?  Well, guess who their first target is going to be…:

And speaking of things nobody could have possibly seen coming…:

Desperate losing Sen. Claire McCaskill explains who she meant when she claimed in an ad to not be “one of those crazy Democrats,” and the crazy Democrat she specified responds in unambiguous and profane terms.:

Yikes. That particular crazy Democrat has some bite.

Speaking of moves being made by desperate losing Democrats, I give you Ed Donnelly of Indiana.:

There is literally no content too low and despicable for CNN to spew out onto its platform.:

By the way, Mr. Lemon’s boyfriend is white, and radical.

The Alexandria Ocasio Cortez parody account responds, but if you didn’t know it was a parody, you’d totally believe it was something she’d actually said:

 

No day on Twitter could ever be complete without making fun of the Creepy Porn Lawyer.:

Finally, while CNN and MSNBC were misleading their viewers into thinking President Donald Trump was greeted by nothing but protesters and haters on his trip to Pittsburgh to visit with Synagogue shooting survivors, you had to be on Twitter to see the truth:

Just another day of highs, lows and belly laughs on Twitter.

That is all.

The Media Beclowns Itself on the Anchor Babies Issue. What Else is New?

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Well, now we know why he was transferred. –  Infamous Boston Gangster Whitey Bulger was transferred to a new, maximum security prison in Virginia on Tuesday.  There, he was beaten to death by several mob-connected inmates before 9:00 a.m. That’s some security right there.

Another media narrative epic fail. – Despite the best efforts of our fake news media to lay the blame for the fake pipe bomber solely at President Donald Trump’s feet over the last week, a new poll taken by the ultra-leftwing Huffington Post shows that only 24% of Americans believe he bears much of the blame for the incident, whatever it really turns out to have been.  On the other hand, 50% of Americans believe he bears “no blame at all” for the actions of a steroids-addled nutjob.

Which only proves that at least half of Americans still have their wits about them.

What, you thought Hollywood would actually reform itself? – Here’s how you can tell the whole #MeToo movement has had no impact whatsoever on the depraved Hollywood culture:  Currently in the works are both a major Showtime mini-series and a feature film starring Charlize Theron about the Roger Ailes scandal at Fox News, but there are zero projects in the works starring nobody about piggish big Hollywood muckety-muck Harvey Weinstein.

What does this tell us? It tells us that despite his current situation, Weinstein retains major influence in Tinseltown, and people there are still afraid to cross him. One gets the feeling that if a movie is ever made about Weinstein and his escapades, it will be cast as a light-hearted comedy starring Kevin Spacey and Meryl Streep, and produced by…wait for it…Harvey Weinstein.

And now a word from the @GDBlackmon Twitter feed:

Sometimes it really is difficult to think of China as a “civilized” society.

On this whole “birthright citizenship” thing… – Never in the history of the fake media beclowning itself have so many inhabitants of our fake media beclowned themselves as they did on Twitter yesterday over this “birthright citizenship” deal. It seemed as if every fake journalist in America felt the burning need to get on Twitter and sternly and sagely announce that President Trump’s planned executive order would never work because, and I quote, “birthright citizenship is enshrined in the Constitution!” Why, it’s almost as if they had all gotten a talking points memo from the Democrat Party or something.  Go figure.

The only problem with their joint talking point on the issue is, it isn’t true. Again, go figure.

Look, the 14th Amendment was ratified in 1868 to protect the rights of freed slaves (about 99% of whose previous “owners” happened to be Democrats, but I digress) and their progeny.  Not only did the 14th Amendment have literally nothing to do with the children of illegal immigrants, the congressional record makes it crystal clear that it was specifically intended to exclude them:

“This will not, of course, include persons born in the United States who are foreigners, aliens, who belong to persons who are ambassadors or foreign ministers accredited to the government of the United States, but will include every other class of persons.”

As I replied to one semi-conservative Texas-based journalist who had displayed rank ignorance on the subject, “There is far more involved here than the 14th Amendment. There is 150 years of case law, 150 years of congressional action, and 150 years of administrative interpretations at play as well. If you’d stop your virtue-signaling for a few minutes, you might figure that out.”

But hey, virtue-signaling to liberals is the favorite passtime of semi-conservative journalists on Twitter, so naturally that particular journalist was unable to stop.

The reality of the current government policy regarding birthright citizenship for anchor babies of illegal immigrants is that it is exactly that:  An administrative policy. It is an interpretation by past presidential administrations that has never been tested in the federal courts.

President Trump, for better or worse, apparently intends to test it, and with the new, presumably-conservative majority on the Supreme Court, he might win.  But more to the point, even an immigration dove like Sen. Lindsey Graham believes the current policy is wrong, and he announced yesterday that he plans to introduce a bill that would correct it.  “Finally, a president willing to take on this absurd policy of birthright citizenship,” Graham said in a statement. “I’ve always supported comprehensive immigration reform – and at the same time – the elimination of birthright citizenship.”

“The United States is one of two developed countries in the world who grant citizenship based on location of birth,” Graham continues, “This policy is a magnet for illegal immigration, out of the mainstream of the developed world, and needs to come to an end.”

It is a bad policy that offers perverse incentives that encourage illegal immigration. It is a policy with no true firm basis in the law, zero actual basis in our constitution, and it needs to end if we are to ever restore some semblance of order to our system of legal immigration.

Given all of that, you can expect to see journalists in Texas and nationally to continue making fools of themselves over the issue on Twitter.  They obviously can’t help themselves, and truly enjoy doing it.

It’s a clown show out there. Be careful, and vote Republican.

That is all.

Avenatti/Ioffe: The Perfect Democrat Ticket for 2020

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

I’m convinced she’s a vampire – she’s never going away. –  The Pantsuit Princess was in the news yet again on Monday, doing some public sit down talk before an audience of overpaying suckers.  Looking as if she was enjoying the relaxing effects of some sort of prescription medication, she had this to say when the moderator mis-identified Eric Holder as Cory Booker:

 

Oh, yeah, she also said she was running for president again in 2020, but hey, we already knew that, didn’t we?  Seriously, everyone does know she is going to make one more run, right?

And why shouldn’t she? After all, she’s only been humiliated twice in runs for the presidency, and it is well known that the third time is the charm. Yes, she’s getting old, but heck, she’s almost a year younger than Donald Trump, and quite a bit younger than other Dem contenders like Joe Biden and the Commie.

So why not give it another shot?  As she herself famously said, the typical Democrat voter is “stupid” and “easily manipulated,” and it has been proven time and time again that nobody is better at manipulating stupid people than a Clinton.  How else does one explain the audience attending her forum yesterday?

But hey, the Coughing Crook ain’t got nothin’ on this Julia Ioffe gal. – Appearing on CNN’s Reliable Sources show, hosted by fake journalist Jake Tapper, another fake journalist named Julia Ioffe had this to say in one of the show’s panel discussions:

This is what liberals call “bringing the country together in the wake of a tragedy.”  Or something.  To be fair to Ms. Ioffe, this isn’t even the most outrageous thing she’s ever said about President Donald Trump.  In December 2016 she issued a tweet accusing the then-President-elect of having sex with his daughter Ivanka.

This is the quality of guest Jake Tapper has on his program, and those of you who still cling to the belief that Tapper is some sort of real journalist need to look closely at the clip posted above and watch as he sits there like a bump on a log and says nothing as Ioffe makes her idiotic statement.

Hey, wait a minute:  Ioffe is shrill, stupid, fairly attractive and bigoted – she’s the perfect Democrat nominee for 2020! How is she not already a declared candidate?  Team her up with the Creepy Porn Lawyer, who is  mean, belligerent, bigoted and also quite stupid, and they’d make the perfect shrill, mindless, and humorless Democrat ticket. They’d be unbeatable in Hollywood, Portland, the Upper East Side of Manhattan, and in the office headquarters of CNN and the New York Times!

If elected, just imagine the cabinet they could put together:  Dr. Christine Ford at Health and Human Services; Rosie O’Donnell as Secretary of State; U.N. Ambassador Stormy Daniels; Cory Spartacus Booker as Secretary of Defense; National Security Advisor Michael Moore; Tom Arnold at Housing and Urban Development; and of course, Attorney General Kamala Harris.

It would be the death of America, but the 24-hour cable news channels would love it.

No more anchor babies? Maybe. – So many consequential stories end up being broken on Twitter these days, and this morning is no exception.  At 4:51 a.m. today, Axios put up this little gem:

Call it a Trumptober surprise – an announcement that he’s planning to end birthright citizenship via executive order, a move that would no doubt spark a national debate and series of court battles that would last throughout the coming year.  Of course, the problem with this approach is that an executive order could simply be reversed by the next Democrat or milquetoast Republican who gets elected to the presidency, just as President Trump has reversed so many of the executive orders that were issued by America’s Biggest Mistake, Barack Obama.  Obviously, convincing congress to pass a law would be much more perman…

Aaaaaaaaaaaaannnnnnnnnd in the ultimate segment for cable news, as I type this, Fox News is getting the opinions of some real experts on this subject, Diamond and Silk.  I love those two hilarious gals, but really?  This is who you seek out to comment on what would be a serious constitutional debate?

Hey, at least they didn’t ask Julia Ioffe or the Creepy Porn Lawyer for their opinion, although who can doubt both will appear on CNN or MSNBC to do exactly that later today?

It’s a clown show out there.  Vote Republican.

That is all.
