House Dems Disgrace Themselves. In Other News, Water is Wet.

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

“I have lied, but I am not a liar. Now, let me introduce my wife, er, ah, ummmm…Morgan Fairchild. Yeah, that’s the ticket!” – As their first witness in the 106th congress, Chairman Elijah Cummings and the Democrats who now run the House Oversight Committee called Michael Cohen, a man who will soon be going away to federal prison for the crime of …wait for it…LYING TO CONGRESS. You seriously cannot make this stuff up. Presumably, their next witness will be this guy:

Yeah, I know – it’s an old reference, but it’s a perfect one. All you Millennials out there can ask your parents about him.  Hint: He’s a character from the years when Saturday Night Live used to be an actual comedy show. Bet you kids didn’t know that was ever even a thing, right?  Right.

Other than that, what else does one say about this shameful circus? That the Democrats on the committee pretty much all disgraced themselves? Who didn’t expect that to happen? That Cohen got caught in several more examples of outright perjury by Jim Jordan, Mark Meadows and other Republicans on the committee? Again, I could have told you that was going to be the case on Wednesday. That Cohen outright admitted to coordinating his opening remarks with Cummings, Adam Schiff and other congressional Democrats? Knock me over with a feather. That Cohen’s own lawyer, Lanny Davis, sat there throughout the hearing looking like the consigliere for a mob outfit? Well, hey, he has worked for the Clintons for 25 years now.

Perhaps the most remarkable, unexpected takeaway from the hearing is the fact that no one is talking about Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s performance in it this morning. From the news coverage, you wouldn’t even know she was on this committee, but she was there, and she actually was one of the more restrained Democrats at the hearing, doing a fine job of reading her script that was prepared by her uniformly-paid staff and avoiding going off on tangents irrelevant to the hearing’s purpose. Good for her.

At the end of the day, what had this DC Swamp circus hearing accomplished? Not a damn thing. Even some of the Trump-hating talking heads at CNN were tsk-tsking about what a bald-faced liar Cohen is, and the New York Times was accusing the Democrats of “overreaching”. In this anti-Trump fake news world, when the Democrats and their star witness have lost CNN and the New York Times, it’s an epic fail.

Deal? Or No Deal? – The answer is no deal, at least for now. If you, unlike anyone in our fake news media, invested the time to read Donald Trump’s book “The Art of the Deal”, you would know that one of his key negotiating principles is that you have to be willing to walk away. As soon as your opponent knows you aren’t willing to do that, you have lost the negotiation.

In the wee hours of this morning, American time, it initially appeared as if a major deal was about to be announced, as the members of the leering press were informed that both President Trump and the Crazy Little Fat Guy would be coming into the press room shortly to take questions. But a little bit later, the press was informed that President Trump would be the only leader coming out.

According to Fox’s Ed Henry, the President and Sec. State Mike Pompeo had been led to believe that Kim was committing to decommissioning all of his country’s nuclear facilities in exchange for the release of U.S. (but not UN) sanctions on North Korea. But then, as the signing documents were being prepared, Kim clarified that he was only willing to decommission a single nuke facility, so President Trump did what any good negotiator would do – he walked away.

But he’ll be back, and another meeting between the two will probably be held before this year is over. Because negotiations are a process, a process that involves the establishment of relationships, of trust, of terms, and of pesky little details. The first two meetings between Trump and Kim have obviously done much to move the ball forward on the establishment of relationships and trust. That itself is rather amazing given the abject refusal of America’s previous four presidents to even have a conversation with any North Korean leader, not to mention the fact that the Democrats pulled the stunt of holding the Cohen hearing in an obvious, despicable effort to derail the negotiations.

The next meeting, or two, or three between the two men will have to work on the ironing out of terms and details. In the meantime, 459 days have now passed since the last North Korean missile test launch, an event that took place on average once every 24 days during the Barack Obama Administration.

We’ll just have to wait and see who Rep. Cummings will call as his committee’s star witness while the next summit meeting is taking place.

Jussie Smollett will probably be looking for a gig.

That is all.

Depraved Democrats Find Their Evil Plan Isn’t Working. Expect More Depravity to Follow.

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Barack Obama and the Pantsuit Princess are jealous. – Turkey’s dictator Tayyip Erdogan “won” another heavily-rigged fake election over the weekend, and will now serve as that country’s “president” through 2023.  For stealing and suppressing enough votes to allow him to hold onto power, the ThompsonReuters fake news agency called Erdogan “the most popular but also the most divisive politician in modern Turkish history”.  The Fainting Felon has long had the “divisive” part down pat, but still aspires to achieve such “popularity.”

Leftists hate you and want to take away your freedoms, Part 11,985. – San Fran Nan was unusually quiet over the weekend, possibly due to recent polls showing her public image with voters is toxic to her Party’s chances in the November elections, so the Democrat Party’s “depravity-and-dementia-on-display” factor had reached a low ebb on Saturday morning.  But then, like clockwork, Mad Maxine Waters kicked her lunatic self into gear..

Rep. Waters drummed up a few dozen people who were either her nutjob supporters, paid activists, bullied staff or, most likely, some combination of the three to hold a demonstration outside of the Wilshire Federal Building in Los Angeles Saturday afternoon.  There, she engaged in full-on incitement to violence, urging leftists all over the nation to engage in harassment of Trump Administration personnel anytime they come across them in public.

Falsely claiming that President Trump is “sacrificing our children” along the southern border – because of course Maxine Waters has to begin any speech with an inflammatory statement that is a lie on multiple levels – the raging dimwit went on to state that “History will record while he tried to step on all of us, we kicked him in his rear and step on him,” and, “If you think we’re rallying now, you ain’t seen nothin’ yet,” because, of course, it’s the rallying that matters most.  *sigh*

Not finished yet (because of course she wasn’t), the braying buffoon then declared, without evidence, that “God is on our side!” before going onto threaten every member of the President’s cabinet:

“Let’s make sure we show up wherever we have to show up and if you see anybody from that Cabinet in a restaurant, in a department store, at a gasoline station, you get out and you create a crowd and you push back on them, and you tell them they’re not welcome anymore, anywhere.”

This is clear incitement to violence, a threat that, had it been made by any Republican office-holder during the Obama years would have been followed very quickly by a visit from the Secret Service, and which would have been immediately condemned by almost the entire GOP congressional caucus.  But from the depraved Democrats?  Not a peep.

Mark my words and feel free to quote me on this:  These depraved and deranged Democrats are going to get someone killed pretty soon, and when that happens, all hell is going to break loose.  It’s just a year ago that a Bernie Sanders fanatic shot up the House GOP’s softball practice, and people like Waters are clearly attempting to create another, similar event.  If you vote for Democrats, you really should hang your head in shame.

Speaking of Depraved Democrats (because why not?), they’re not getting the polling results they want from their many public displays of anti-social depravity, and it’s really starting to show.

First, they obviously got some really bad early polling data from the now-infamous “Red Hen” incident, in which the owner of that restaurant in Lexington, VA kicked Sarah Huckabee Sanders and her family out on Friday evening, because the Party sent Maryland Congressman Elijah Cummings out on the Sunday morning talk shows to actually say that the restaurant “should have served her.”  Trust me, those are words that the tireless demagogue Cummings would never have uttered absent some external driver, and that external driver was almost certainly some really awful polling or focus group data.

Then there’s the whole illegal immigration issue.  It turns out that two weeks of screaming, wailing and heinously lying about the issue of illegal alien children being temporarily separated from their illegal alien parents has resulted in some truly horrible polling numbers for….wait for it… the Democrats!

In a new Rasmussen survey on the issue, fully 54% of likely voters (Rasmussen is the only pollster that polls likely voters) blame the parents, not the Trump Administration, for this situation, with only 35% blaming the government. But wait, it gets worse, much worse for the Democrats, as only 46% of independent voters blame the government on the issue.

And then this for a kicker:

“Fifty-four percent (54%) agree with President Trump when he says, “The United States will not be a migrant camp. And it will not be a refugee-holding facility – it won’t be.” Thirty percent (30%) disagree, while 16% are undecided.”

Think about the implications of that last finding:  Only 30% of likely voters are in favor of the Democrat Party’s real goal of unfettered, open borders for the United States after all of this hyperbolic rhetoric, lying, shouting and fake crying about the issue.  Somewhere, Rachel Maddow is probably shedding real tears for once.

Just another day in November is going to be a wipeout America.

That is all.
