Are Experts Who Are Always Wrong Really “Experts” At All?

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

The rules, they are a-changin’. – Hey, remember when all your Democrat friends were telling you that the appropriation of other cultures by white people was all bad and stuff, or something? Well, apparently that’s all gone by the wayside now that Fauxcahontas, one of the most pasty-white people you have ever seen in your life, is running for president.

That’s right:  Little Mouth Always Running, on her campaign’s website, is now telling us that it is somehow “racist” to criticize her for pretending to be an American Indian in order to get hired at Harvard several decades ago, and for keeping that pretense up as a means of boosting her political career.

So, hey, new rules:  Cultural appropriation is peachy-keen if you’re a leftist lunatic who is borrowing someone else’s culture in order to make money or obtain votes under false pretenses.

*sigh*

Tired of all this #Winning yet? – Why are all the “experts” always so damn shocked by the jobs reports?  So, the U.S. economy added 312,000 new jobs in December, shocking all the eminent high muckety-muck economists, who predicted from their high towers that the number would be more like 180,000.

Of course, it wasn’t just these mysterious “expert” economists who were flummoxed by the wonderful report – the fake news media that has been doing its best to tank the U.S. economy since January 20, 2017 was also in a state of shock about it all.  Here’s a sampling of the headlines this morning:

Associated Press:  US employers went on a surprising[!] hiring spree in December

NPR: U.S. Adds Stronger-Than-Expected[!] 312,000 Jobs

Daily Mail: US economy adds 312,000 jobs in December, nearly DOUBLE[!] the number forecast by economists

CNN: U.S. Nonfarm Payrolls Rise 312,000 in December Vs. 184,000 Expected [Man, you know CNN detested having to report that]

And on and on it went. The hilarious thing about this is that all these same “experts” were also shocked at every jobs report during the Obama years, but they were invariably shocked because the actual numbers were so low when compared to their pie-in-the-sky expectations.

The moral of this story is this:  Just as it is best to never listen to what the Inside-the-Beltway “experts” on your TV screen have to say about politics, it is best to never believe economists our fake news media identifies as “experts” when it comes to the economy.

Speaking of “experts”… – Democrat Senator Ben Cardin came out of a 2-hour meeting on border security at the White House and told Wolf Blitzer on CNN that “experts” are telling the Democrats that walls don’t work.

That, of course, is a damnable lie. There are no “experts” telling the Democrats any such thing, since any true “expert” on the matter has to admit that walls are indeed extremely effective at keeping out intruders.  This has been proven time after time after time in countries all over the world, and even in San Diego, California, where the wall constructed in the 1990s has reduced the illegal immigrant problem by 95%.

Anyone telling the Democrats that walls don’t work is a hack, a liar and most likely a politically-motivated leftist.  Which of course is the only kind of “expert” any of today’s Democrats are willing to listen to. Naturally, Mr. Blitzer had neither the motivation nor the presence of mind to ask Cardin to identify any of these “experts” by name.  Because, CNN.

Let’s close this out with some Twitter fun from Friday:

She was dipping into the family firewater…

I have to watch some paint dry…

Reuters needs to consult with a new Twitter “expert”…

Time for the Democrats to haul out some more fake “experts”…

It’s Austin.  It had to either be Avocados or flour tortillas…

But…but…where’s Fauxcahontas?…

Texas Congressman Dan Crenshaw perfectly sums up the AOC Dance Video…

And finally, our fake news media will do anything to protect their beloved Democrats (pardon the obscenity, but it’s apparently going to become just a part of our normal political discourse now)…

*sigh*

Mitt Romney: Hillary Clinton in a Brooks Brothers Suit

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Replacing one flake with another. – Those of you who were despairing over the retirement of Jeff Flake from the U.S. Senate (yes, all three of you) had reason to cheer on Tuesday, because a white RINO knight rode in to fill the void.

His name is Mitt. He hails from Utah. He is a RINO like no other RINO – the only living RINO who ran such a feckless presidential campaign that he ensured a second term in office for America’s Worst Mistake, Barack Hussein Obama.

Combining all the most detestable traits of the RINO community – disloyalty, venality, massive hubris and an unending willingness to consort with the enemy for self-aggrandizement – Mitt authored a hit piece aimed at President Donald Trump in one of the nation’s foremost anti-Trump fake news organs, the Washington Post. In it, the two-time loooooooooser in presidential politics said that Mr. Trump “has not risen to the mantle of the office.” Hashtag, irony.

Romney went on to signal that he will be every bit as disloyal to the GOP cause as was his philosophical doppelganger, Flake: “I will support policies that I believe are in the best interest of the country and my state, and oppose those that are not.” In RINO-speak, this means that he will be just another shill for the open borders policies favored by the Wall Street Journal and Chamber of Commerce, and a supporter of U.S. involvement in unending civil wars in a variety of nations across the Middle East and Africa. Bill Kristol and Jonah Goldberg will be thrilled.

Mind you, Romney was thrilled to have Donald Trump’s endorsement during his failed presidential run in 2012, and was just fine with having a widely-publicized private dinner with then-President Elect Trump in his quest to gain the appointment as Secretary of State. Classically typical of any RINO, Romney’s “principles” are extremely malleable.

So, no surprises here – same old Mitt Romney. If you liked Mitt in 2012, you will absolutely love him in 2019, as he becomes a safe 48th vote in the Senate on key issues for the Democrat Party. As one writer headlined, “Mitt Romney Just Joined the Resistance.” He’s Hillary Clinton in a Brooks Brothers suit.

Refusing to take the bait… – This morning, President Donald Trump (I never tire of typing those three glorious words) had a policy-focused response to Romney’s taunt:

Fauxcahontas has a clear [war]path to the Democrat nomination. – The fake Indian senator from Massachusetts chose New Year’s Day to formally announce her run for the presidency, informing her mostly wealthy, white-bread supporters that she has formed an exploratory committee in that regard. She will now begin the process of raising big wampum for her campaign, including travels to early primary states like Iowa and New Hampshire where she will smoke the peace pipe around many campfires with her party’s local chiefs and high muckety-mucks.

Her campaign got off to a very Michael-Dukakis-riding-in-a-tank start with the release of the video below, which includes a tense hug with her husband, a struggle to pop the top on a bottle of beer, and some cooking, all very odd signals for a supposed leftwing feminist to be sending:

If you look closely, you might also notice what appears for all the world to be a figurine of “Sambo” atop the cabinet directly behind the civil rights crusader’s head. You seriously cannot make this stuff up.

Well, that’s one way to put it…

Man, I thought she was dead…

No matter how absurdly Mitt Romney behaves, he can never out-do this guy…

This is how CNN entertained its viewers on New Year’s Eve…

What a way to start the year, huh?

ObamaCare’s On-Again Off-Again Constitutionality Is Off-Again, For Now

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Huh. Guess congress did something about ObamaCare after all. –  The stain on our nation’s healthcare system that is ObamaCare was declared unconstitutional by a federal judge in Texas on Friday, and you’ll never guess why.

Remember last year, when we were all complaining that the Republican congress had failed to do anything effective to get rid of the atrocity? Remember when John McCain proudly cast the deciding vote in the dead of night, sneering in his belief that he had, in his final major act as a senator, saddled the nation with this economy killing nightmare into perpetuity?

Yeah, it turns out that McCain and everyone else might have been wrong. Judge Reed O’Connor – who everyone in our fake news media will be labeling as a “conservative judge” or a “right-wing judge” today, even though they never label any Obama appointee properly as a “Marxist judge” or “Alynskyite judge” – ruled that Obamacare was rendered unconstitutional last year when congress repealed the individual mandate tax contained within it.

This of course is the “tax” that Chief Justice John Roberts ruled really was a tax – even though Obama and every other Democrat on earth denied it was a tax, and the law itself did not call it a tax – when he twisted himself into tight little pretzels of illogic in declaring the law to be “constitutional” back in 2012. Yeah, that “tax”.

Judge O’Connor, in a suit brought by Texas and 19 other states, ruled on Friday that this “tax”  – which penalized anyone who didn’t purchase healthcare ‘insurance’ under Obamacare in order to subsidize the entire house of cards – was in fact the foundation of the entire house of cards. The states had argued that the individual mandate was “non-severable” from the remainder of the ObamaCare law, and the judge agreed.

President Trump got all excited when he heard of the decision and issued the following premature tweet:

The problem is that Judge O’Connor’s decision will be immediately appealed by the 14 states who argued in favor of ObamaCare, and thus will not become effective anytime soon, if it ever does. Justice Roberts, after all, has already demonstrated he is willing to go to any lengths of illogic to uphold the atrocity, and there are still 4 leftist clods on the court who will do or say anything to promote their own personal social views.

Still, it was fun to wake up this morning to the news that John McCain’s final sneering middle finger act to the rest of us has at least temporarily been invalidated.

It’s been a great week for goodbyes. – Man, getting rid of Jeff Flake and The Weekly Standard all in one week feels like Christmas come early! Toss Claire McCaskill into the mix, and it’s time to strike up “Joy to the World”.

Yes, friends, the execrable cretin Bill Kristol announced late Friday that the formerly conservative but now rankly liberal #NeverTrump publication, The Weekly Standard, would go out of business after it publishes its final issue on Monday. To that, I only have this to say:

Ok, I have one more thing to say. The sad part of this is that, while Kristol and fellow editor Stephen Hayes will be just fine in this deal, no doubt getting a massive severance deal and retaining their contributor agreements with various cable networks (Kristol has long been one of CNN’s favorite pet fake conservatives), the rest of the magazine’s staff is going to get royally screwed right before Christmas.

Still, the shutting of this rag is no loss to conservatism, no loss to the GOP and no loss to the country. It just is.

Wait, what? Huh? Come again? – Liberals are having such a hard damn time labeling themselves these days that it’s hard to keep up.  Take yesterday as examples:

First, Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth “Little Mouth Always Running” Warren gave a speech on Friday in which she outright declared that “I am not a person of color.” Holy crap. Wasn’t it just a couple of months ago that this congenitally dishonest hack was taking DNA tests, declaring that, because one of them found that she was 1/1024th (maybe) “native American” that she WAS a “person of color?”

Make up your mind, lady.

As if that’s not confusing enough, then you have some guy named Jonathan Rauch, who is apparently himself a gay man, writing a piece at the ultra-liberal rag The Atlantic declaring that “it’s time to take the ‘LGBT’ out of ‘LGBTQ'”.  I swear I do not make this stuff up. Here is a part of Rauch’s reasoning, which I must directly quote in order to not be personally accused of being a bigot:

“As activists and theorists sought to cover every base, they recognized asexuality and intersexuality and various other identities by coining LGBTQIAA+, LGBTTIQQ2SA, and other telescoping designations. Lately LGBTQ seems to have become the norm, on the assumption that Q, for queer, can stand in for all the rest.”

and this…

“If you like, you can think of it as short for queer. Or, if you don’t like, just Q. Give it any etymology you wish. Regardless, the term would be understood to encompass sexual minorities of all stripes. When we speak of ourselves as individuals, we would use gay or lesbian or transgender or whatever applies. When we need a blanket term, we would simply call ourselves Q. As in: the Q population and Q equalityQ is simple and inclusive, and carries minimal baggage. When we speak of Q equality, we are saying that discrimination against sexual minorities—or for that matter sexual majorities—is not the American way.”

That’s right: After decades of gay rights activists telling the world that the use of the word “queer” is in fact a bigoted slur (which it is), we now have a prominent gay “journalist” advocating that everyone go back to using the letter “Q” – which he overtly admits stands for the word “queer” – to refer to anyone in the gay community.

I can’t even.

That is all.

The Week in Review: A Week of Democrat/Media Narrative Epic Fails

The Campaign Update Week in Review

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Every week in American politics is different.  They all have their ebbs and flows, their dramas, their comedies, their pratfalls and their tragedies.

Typically, they all have their own narratives, the overriding major story or stories that our fake news media conspire with the Democrat Party to push into the public domain for political advantage.  Sometimes, a single narrative dominates the entire week – as happened a few weeks ago with the whole Kavanaugh drama.  Most of them end up being ineffective, although a few end up having legs, and at the end of most weeks you can typically look back and identify one that served as the overriding Democrat/media theme for that 7-day period.

But not this week.  This week is different.  This week, there was no single overriding narrative that any normal American paid special attention to.

The Khashoggi murder at the Saudi consulate in Turkey came closest – it lasted the whole week, and the media obsessed over it for sure.  But at the end of the day, very few normal Americans actually cared what happened to this radical Islamic, Muslim Brotherhood-pushing opinion writer.  It was an utterly failed narrative, but because Khashoggi was a fellow fake journalist, the U.S. media couldn’t stop pushing it.

But hey, whether the narratives are effective or not, the one thing we know for sure about our hated fake news media is that they will keep on pushing them on behalf of their Democrat masters, because they’ve been doing it for so long now, they don’t know how to do anything else.

 

And now, without further ado, let’s go to the Week in Review (see what I did there?):

It was the week that Democrats hired a bunch of crisis actors to form a “migrant caravan” that amazingly consists of about 80% military-age males (see photo below) to make its way up through Honduras, Guatemala and Mexico to conveniently arrive at the Rio Grande a few days before Election Day.  Thanks to the intervention of President Donald Trump, the “caravan” was halted at Mexico’s southern border.  As of this morning, half of the original 4,000 are on their way back to Honduras and the other half are in a Mexican detention camp.

 

It was the week that the fake news media finally began admitting what the Campaign Update has been telling you for several weeks, which is that Special Counsel Robert Mueller is systematically closing up his shop.  The newsfakers at Politico ran a piece on Friday titled “Mueller Report PSA:  Prepare for Disappointment”.  The subhead reads “And be forewarned that the special counsel’s findings may never be made public.”  Campaign Update readers knew all of that a week ago.

Speaking of Democrat disappointment, it was the week that the fake news media and pollsters who have been pushing their “Blue Wave” fantasy for a year suddenly began getting cold feet and speculating about what will happen if the Republicans maintain control of both houses of congress again?  Go figure.

It was the week that the Pantsuit Princess let it be known she is contemplating running yet again in 2020 and many Democrat Party leaders contemplated slitting their own wrists.

It was the week that our fake news media demonstrated that it cares infinitely more about the murder of an obscure Saudi national opinion writer than it cared about the following killings of actual Americans:

– Kate Steinle

– Seth Rich

– Benghazi

– Vince Foster

– Mary Mahoney

– James McDougal

– Ed Willey

– Ron Brown

– Mollie Tibbetts

…and this list could go on and on and on.  And these fake “journalists” wonder why so many millions of Americans detest them.

It was the week that Mitch McConnell and his wife were accosted by a Democrat thug in a cafe in his hometown of Louisville, Kentucky.  Rather than just sit and watch like a bunch of Washington D.C. slugs, McConnell’s fellow diners got pissed and ran the thug out of the place.  That’s what happens when you try to pull crap like this out here in Flyover Country, boys.  If you pull a stunt like that in Texas, you’ll probably end up in an emergency room.

It was the week when Elizabeth Warren became so enraged with President Trump and his constant “Pocahontas” taunts about her fake Indian heritage that she took a damn DNA test and proved herself to be 1/1,024th “right”.  The hilarity that ensued with meme after meme after meme on social media was comedic gold, I tell ya, gold!

It was the week that Christine Blasey Ford disappeared completely from the public conversation, as the Democrat Party has no further use for her.  The same thing will happen to all those crisis actors down in Mexico at midnight on Election Day.

Speaking of disappearing Democrat tools, it was also the week that the Creepy Porn Lawyer disappeared from the public space.  Presumably all those dimwits at CNN and MSNBC who gave money to Stormy Daniels’ GoFundMe account are a little ticked that their money will now actually go to reimburse President Trump for his legal expenses after the porn star and her creepy lawyer got poured out of court last week.

It was the week that oily Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein had several hours to spend being interviewed by the Wall Street Journal, but couldn’t find the time to offer testimony to congress.  When Rosenstein finally agreed to testify next week, he demanded the testimony take place in secret in a secure location, and with only 2 Republicans and 2 Democrats present.

It was the week that a husband and wife pair of nitwits in Katy, Texas decided it would be a peachy idea to paint a huge, 20′ x 20′ “Beto” sign on their front lawn, and then expressed great confusion about why their neighborhood HOA is irritated with them.  I swear I don’t make this stuff up.

Finally, it was the week when the President of the United States of America sent out this hilarious message on his Twitter account:

Funny, but oh, so true.

The Media and Pollsters are Getting Cold Feet on this Whole “Blue Wave” Thing

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

This is really not a good look for any Pope.  – This happened yesterday.  I have no idea what to say about it, other than that just happened:

Why do we have to read about this in a British news outlet? – Just when you thought the Department of Justice was completely asleep at the wheel, it goes and arrests a leaker.  The UK Daily Mail reports that one Natalie Mayflower Sours Edwards (I swear I did not make up that name) was arrested on the streets of Washington, DC on Tuesday and charged by DOJ investigators on Wednesday with crimes related to illegally leaking the private banking records of various Trump Transition Team members to the fake media outlet Buzzfeed.

When she was arrested, Ms. Mayflower Sours Edwards, an employee of the U.S. Treasury Department, was actually carrying a thumb drive that contained the records in question.  So, obviously not the brightest bulb in the Treasury Department’s light fixture.

Interestingly, Ms. Edwards (sorry, I’m not typing all that other crap anymore) leaked information related to Paul Manafort and Rick Gates, along with suspected Russian spy Maria Butina, all of whom have been subjects of Robert Mueller’s Special Counsel “investigation.”  Others whose records she leaked are not specifically identified in the complaint filed by the DOJ.

Why am I mentioning this?  Well, one of those “others” is likely to eventually be revealed to be former Trump lawyer Micheal Cohen, who became a target of the Mueller “investigation” when his own banking records were mysteriously released to several media outlets, including to Ronan Farrow at The New Yorker in May.  The U.S. news media is under-playing this story for now, but this lady with the odd name is likely to be revealed to be a pretty important player in how all of this “Russia Collusion” fantasy play morphed into a bank-and-tax fraud investigation over the course of the last year.

Oh, and one other thing:  The complaint also states that Ms. Edwards boss was leaking to reporters.  So, the arrests over at the Treasury Department might just keep on coming.  What in the hell is going on over there?

Little Mouth Always Running lives in her own little dreamcatcher world.  – The newsfakers at The Washington Post tweeted this little gem out early this morning:

Good to know.

More proof that a Lindsey Graham freed from the pernicious influence of John McCain is a vastly improved Lindsey Graham:

You go, Senator.

Today’s lesson in Democrat Mob Civility from the People’s Republic of Portland, Oregon:

Just a reminder that this is exactly the behavior that has recently been endorsed and encouraged by leading Democrats like Maxine Waters, Hillary Clinton and Eric Holder.  Keep that in mind on Election Day.

And speaking of the elections… – Some interesting pieces of information from the past couple of days show the media and pollsters who have been pushing their treasured “Blue Wave” theory for the last year now starting to back off as Election Day approaches and the actual data fails to give them comfort:

  • NBC News getting cold feet.:  “Uncertainty Over A Blue Wave:  NBC News Finds Democratic and GOP Voter Registrations at Same Levels as Past Election Cycles.”  You don’t say…
  • Speaking of cold feet, there’s Nate Silver.:  “Nate Silver’s warning about midterm predictions that journalists won’t want to hear”.  Man, it’s 2016 all over again.
  • The Times keeps getting results it doesn’t want. – New York Times live poll shows Texas Congressman Will Hurd with an 8-point lead in what was supposed to be a tossup district.
  • From our That’s Not a Valid Sample file… – CNN released a poll on the Texas Senate race on Tuesday that shows Ted Cruz leading Irish Bob O’Rourke by a 52-45 margin.  Ok, so, why am I mentioning this poll?  Because its sample included just 25% Republicans, 25% Democrats and 50% “other”.  This in a state in which the GOP had a 50% turnout edge over the Ds in the primary elections, and in which Republicans have won every statewide election since 1994.
  • Why even bother? – In Indiana’s senate race, Gravis released a poll this week purporting to show incumbent Democrat Joe Donnelly with a 4 point lead over GOP challenger Mike Braun.  But the poll only surveyed 377 “likely voters”, and has a margin of error of 5.1 percent.  Which means that, in reality, we know nothing more about the true state of the Indiana senate race today than we did before that waste of time poll was released.
  • This is what you do in the final weeks of a campaign when you have tons of money and you know you are losing. – “Beto Goes Negative on Cruz in New Ads”. 

So what does this all mean?  It means you need to stop worrying about polls and stop asking me about polls.  Because, as I keep pointing out to you, most of these polls are meaningless.  Most of them are not even commissioned to actually gauge the status of a race, but to influence the direction of a race.  In fact, that is pretty much the only kind of poll we have seen throughout the duration of the Cruz/O’Rourke race, with only a few exceptions.

The best ways to gauge the status of the races are to get a grip on the overall national mood, which this year favors a pretty much status quo election, and to also look at how the candidates themselves are behaving – O’Rourke being just one of many examples available to us.  It is also obvious that the Democrat senate candidates in North Dakota, Arizona, Florida, Missouri, Tennessee and Nevada are sucking wind right now, and the Democrats in West Virginia, Indiana and even New Jersey are getting very nervous.

One more time:  When all is said and done, expect the Republicans to lose 10-15 seats in the House, but not the 23 necessary for the Democrats to assume a majority there.  In the Senate, expect the Rs to gain a net 4-5 seats.  That’s been my prediction since January, and I still see no reason to adjust it.

That is all.

Elizabeth Warren’s Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

This is what the Creepy Porn Lawyer calls a “moral victory.” – Monday was not a good day for Creepy Porn Lawyers, specifically, the nation’s most infamous Creepy Porn Lawyer, Michael Avenatti.  You know, the guy who thinks he’s going to be the Democrat Party’s presidential nominee in 2020.  Don’t laugh – he’s such an outright fraud that he just might get there, because we all know how Democrat voters love to nominate frauds for the presidency.  Think about it.

Yesterday, fresh off of making a national laughingstock of himself for putting forward a literal crazy woman who accused Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of running a punch-spiking, girl-drugging, serial gang rape operation while he was in high school back in the 1970s, the Creepy Porn Lawyer became a laughingstock once again as a federal judge dismissed Stormy Daniels’ defamation lawsuit against President Donald Trump.  Not only did the judge throw the creepy case out of his court, he also ruled that the porn star must reimburse President Trump for his legal fees in the case!  I swear I don’t make this stuff up.

For his part, Avenatti responded to the judge’s decision like that little kid on the elementary school playground who, after you beat him in another game of marbles, always kicked the dirt and said “you cheated – I’ll getcha next time!”:

HAH HAH HAH HAH HAH HAH HAH HAH HAH HAH HAH HAH HAH HAH HAH HAH HAH HAH HAH HAH HAH HAH HAH HAH HAH HAH HAH [takes deep breath] HAH HAH HAH HAH HAH HAH HAH HAH HAH HAH HAH HAH HAH HAH HAH HAH HAH HAH !!!!!!

Stop it, you’re killin’ me here, Creepy Porn Lawyer!

But Avenatti wasn’t the only leading Democrat 2020 presidential contestant who had a really, really, really, really bad day on Monday…

For Exhibit B, I give you Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren. – My goodness, I’m not sure anyone planning a run for the presidency – as Fauxcahontas clearly is despite her tepid non-denial denials – has ever suffered a more needless self-inflicted wound than Senator Warren did on Monday.

Obviously obsessed and enraged over President Trump’s frequent taunts about her life-long fraudulent contention that she is a “Native American” based on nothing but “family lore”, the neo-Marxist Senator from Massachusetts engaged in a huge bit of self-immolation as she rolled out a “DNA test” conducted by some flim-flam artist at Stanford University in an effort to prove the lore was in fact true.  The extreme leftist Democrat Party propaganda rag, the Boston Globe, was only too happy to play host to her stunt, advertising Warren’s “proof” with a big front page story in which the paper originally claimed the test, which said that Warren probably had one “Native American” relative as far as 6 to 10 generations back in her lineage, somehow proved she was as much as 1/16th Cherokee.

Oops.

A few hours later, after no doubt hundreds of readers had called and emailed that having a great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great grandmother who was “Native American” in one’s lineage would in fact make you a tiny fraction of that, the Globe then issued a correction that said that …wait for it…Sen. Warren is in fact 1/1024th “Native American!”  A few hours after that, the paper then issued yet another correction as it desperately tried to make things better for its favorite Senator, now claiming that, ok, well, the test actually means she is somewhere between 1/64th and 1/1024th “Native American,” as if that made everything all better.

It didn’t.  The damage was already done by then, and it turns out the “test” in question didn’t even use a single sample of actual “Native American” DNA as a point of comparison.

See, this guy at Stanford doesn’t actually have any real “Native American” DNA samples to use, so instead he uses samples from people in places like Colombia, Peru and other points in South America, on the theory that hey, all them Indians in the Western Hemisphere are the same, right?  Holy cow!

Thus, what this “test” actually “proves” – assuming it proves anything at all – is that somewhere way, way, waaaaayyyyyyy back in her family lineage, Senator Little Mouth Always Running had one ancestor who might, maybe, have been Colombian, Peruvian or some sort of American Indian but nobody really knows for sure.  It was on this basis, and with this knowledge aforethought that Sen. Lieawatha actually thought she was declaring victory here.

It all became a little too much for the Cherokee Nation, sick of Sen. Faucahontas’s constant, obviously fraudulent efforts to appropriate the heritage of which real Cherokees are so proud and over which so many have died.  Early in the afternoon, the Nation issued the following statement lambasting Sen. Warren and this “test”:

“A DNA test is useless to determine tribal citizenship. Current DNA tests do not even distinguish whether a person’s ancestors were indigenous to North or South America. Sovereign tribal nations set their own legal requirements for citizenship, and while DNA tests can be used to determine lineage, such as paternity to an individual, it is not evidence for tribal affiliation. Using a DNA test to lay claim to any connection to the Cherokee Nation or any tribal nation, even vaguely, is inappropriate and wrong. It makes a mockery out of DNA tests and its legitimate uses while also dishonoring legitimate tribal governments and their citizens, whose ancestors are well documented and whose heritage is prove. Senator Warren is undermining tribal interests with her continued claims of tribal heritage.”

Ouch.  Devastating.

Meanwhile, as the day went on, the fake news media became increasingly desperate in its efforts to provide cover for its favorite fake Indian, and focused on President Trump’s taunt from last year in which he said he’d give $1 million to Warren’s favorite charity if she could prove she was indeed an Indian.  One nitwit fake reporter even questioned the President about it as he toured the devastation left behind by Hurricane Michael in Florida.  Mr. Trump, smiling, responded hilariously, saying “What is it, 1/1000th?  I’ll only do it if I can test her personally.  That will not be something I enjoy doing either.”

So, just so everyone is clear here:  Yesterday, President Donald Trump (I never tire of typing those three glorious words) succeeded in inducing a leading contender for the Democrat 2020 presidential nomination to a) take a damn DNA test at her own expense, b) declare victory over having been sort of “proven” to be 1/1024th right, and c) get taken down in a brutal way by the Cherokee Nation for her troubles.

That, my friends, is #WINNING.

That is all.

Why we Must #NeverTrust #NeverTrumpers Again

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

 

For all you snowflakes, SJWs and just plain goofy leftists out there…:  The fakenewsers at The Huffington Post courteously published a piece on Saturday conveying 12 things all you pathetic losers out there can do to sooth yourselves in the wake of the Brett Kavanaugh confirmation.  Those helpful tips include “Practice Deep Breathing,” “Take a Break From Social Media (a wonderful bit of advice that none of these people will take)”, and the capper, “Limit Alcohol Consumption,” which seems like a really great idea for these people to stick with in any event.

No word if the HuffPo was also offering safe spaces for its demented readers at its headquarters, but it seems likely.  I swear I don’t make this stuff up.  Who could?

Found on my Twitter feed this morning:

And this little gem from last night:

Brit Hume had a great smackdown for deranged Kathy Griffin here:

Hilarious.

 

All the #NeverTrump nitwits say “No, because muh principles, or something!”:

This guy asks a great question on Twitter, but he won’t like the answer he gets back…

All the readers of The Campaign Update are smart and attractive people, so you all are no doubt horrified at the thought of what would have happened to the Supreme Court had the 2016 election turned out differently.  The Scalia vacancy would have been immediately filled by Merrick Garland – or someone worse – upon the coronation of the Pantsuit Princess, and the Kennedy vacancy would have been filled by some nitwit from the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals or the ACLU, in all likelihood.

That outcome would have literally ended our constitutional democracy for all intents and purposes.  The First, Second, Fourth, Fifth and Tenth amendments would have come under withering assault in the courts, and would have been rendered meaningless within a few years.  The Interstate Commerce Clause would have evaporated, and private property rights would have followed shortly.

People with common sense should never let themselves forget the heinous actions of the mindless #NeverTrump, fake conservatives among us.  We should always remember that people like Bill Kristol and George Will and S.E. Cupp and Stephen Hayes and Jennifer Rubin and Ross Douthat and Jonah Goldberg and Brett Stephens and the entire staffs at the Weekly Standard and the National Review (with a couple of notable exceptions) literally advocated that our nation would be better off with the Fainting Felon as our president.  These people all advised their readers to vote for a career criminal, the person who told us in no uncertain terms that her presidency would simply be a continuation of the Obama presidency, to become our 45th President instead of Donald Trump.

Never forget #NeverTrump, because these people, who have held themselves out to be “conservatives” to their duped audiences for many years, literally advocated for the condemnation of our children and their children to live in a United States of America that would irreversibly become a European-style quasi-socialist quasi-democracy.  It was forgivable – even understandable – for this clan of fake conservatives to favor other Republicans for the GOP nomination – hell, I even did that for awhile.  But these people can never be forgiven for this and can never be trusted by any thinking person again for their outright support of the Grasping Grifter.

Yes, I am aware that most of the people I named above and many more #NeverTrump nitwits did the right thing and strongly condemned the smearing of Kavanaugh and those who perpetrated it.  Sorry, that’s not enough, and really, nothing they do can ever change what they did in 2016.  Nothing can ever remove the stain of advocating the election of the Coughing Crook from their reputations.

Simply put, they revealed their true nature at that time as people who can never be trusted or relied upon to protect the rights of Americans again.  It’s like that stain that’s been dried into your favorite t-shirt:  It’s just not ever coming out, no matter what you do.

So #NeverTrust #NeverTrump again.

 

That is all.

If Ben Sasse Left the GOP, Would the Democrats Even Take Him?

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

There had to be one at some point. –  Holy cow, we had an actual slow news day on Saturday!  Yes, friends, for literally the first time since The Campaign Update was initiated in July of 2016, we did not have multiple major news cycles in a single day.

The biggest news was that Serena Williams, the greatest women’s tennis player in history, lost in the U.S. Open finals to Naomi Osaka, and decided to blame it all on the umpire.  Williams was completely dominated in the match by Osaka, who won the first set 6-2.  Williams decided to start fighting with the umpire after he noticed her coach signaling to her from the stands, which is supposed to be illegal in the game of tennis although everyone does it.  Williams, seeing the handwriting of a loss on the wall, decided to latch onto the umpire as her excuse, threw several tantrums, and ruined the first major championship for Osaka in the process, as Williams’ behavior left both women crying at the trophy award ceremony.

Sportsmanship is a lost art.

If Ben Sasse left the GOP, would anyone actually notice? – The other “big news” of the day was the statement by Nebraska’s RINO Senator Ben Sasse that “I consider leaving the Republican Party every day,” as if anyone didn’t already know he’s a liberal dressed in a conservative suit.  Democrats everywhere cowered in fear at the prospect of heaping a big helping of Ben Sasse atop their already steaming plate of smarm and hypocrisy provided daily by Cory Booker and Kamala Harris.  Their party is already filled to capacity with grandstanding jerks – it may be the one place in Donald Trump’s economy that has no more job openings.

Yes, it’s caused by their professors. – A new study by Brigham and Women’s Hospital finds that 1 in 4 college students suffer from a mental health condition.  No word if 98% of them are journalism majors, but it seems likely.

The Democrat Party’s far, far, far, far, far, far, far left wing weighs in on Kavanaugh. – If you’re a normal person, i.e., someone who is perceptive and cogent enough to actually live in the real world, you know that the Democrat Party’s base today is made up of three wings:  It’s left wing, it’s far, far, far left wing, and it’s far, far, far, far, far, far, far, far left wing.

Outside of Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders, both of whom make Joseph Stalin look positively conservative, most Democrat senators line up within one of the first two wings from an ideological standpoint.  Given that neither Sanders nor Fauxcahontas sit on the Senate Judiciary Committee, you might be surprised to learn that the party’s far, far, far, far, far, far, far, far left wing – which is by far its largest voting wing today – has actually not been satisfied with the mob rule, showboating antics of the Democrats during the Kavanaugh hearings.

That’s right – these hipster/social justice warrior/Antifa nutjobs are actually angry at their party leaders for not going far enough.  To prove it, a group of them, led by the despicable cretins who run the Women’s March, DailyKos, Friends of the Earth and Justice Democrats, sent a letter on Saturday to Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer excoriating him and other senate Ds for not going far enough and for the hienous crimes of … wait for it … oh, you have to wait for this one … KEEPING AN OPEN MIND!

Yes, friends, any Democrat Senator who did not announce how he or she would vote on the nomination before the hearings had been held is now persona non grata among the lunatic major portion of their party’s voting base.  Here’s an excerpt from the letter:

“Your job as Senate Democratic leader is to lead your caucus in complete opposition to Trump’s attempted Supreme Court takeover and to defend everyone threatened by a Trump Supreme Court,” the letter said. “But unbelievably, nearly two dozen Democrats have still not come out against Kavanaugh, and just last week, you helped Majority Leader Mitch McConnell fast track 15 Trump judicial nominees. That is not the leadership we need.”

Note how it defines Schumer’s “duty”:  It’s not to listen carefully to the nominee’s testimony, not to carefully read the massive documentation related to Kavanaugh’s background and prior court decisions, not to carefully consider whether or not the judge is qualified for the job, oh no.  To the radical left, Schumer’s and his entire caucus’s job is to oppose.  Period.  No matter what.  Oppose for the sake of opposing, without consideration, without apparent thought.

Because any Democrat who lets actual thought creep into his or her head might end up deciding that the real enemy to our nation is not the nominee, but the motley collection of nutjobs, malcontents, spoiled babies and nitwits who make up the preponderance of their party’s voting base, and we can’t have that, can we?

This is the milieu that Sen. Sasse says he thinks about joining on a daily basis.  That’s really sort of extraordinary, isn’t it?  The voters in Nebraska really ought to factor that into their decision-making when their Senator stands for re-election in 2020.

That is all.

Clapper Initiates Operation CYA at a Surprising Target

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

For those who missed it – I compiled one of my rare Evening Campaign Updates last night, and it’s worth checking out.

It’s still the 9th Circuit, folks, and it always will be. – Twitter and cable news came all abuzz Tuesday afternoon when reports began circulating that the notoriously anti-constitutional 9th Circuit Court of Appeals had issued a decision overruling a California ban on certain rifle magazines.  Conservatives were all over Twitter and Facebook proclaiming a major victory, and that the 9th Circuit had finally seen the light!

Well, no, not exactly.  This decision was issued by a 3-judge panel subset of the Circuit Court’s huge membership, and California now has the right – which it will certainly exercise – to request the case to be heard en banc, i.e., by the Court’s full leftist-friendly membership.  The judges for these 3-judge panels are picked at random, and this particular panel just happened to draw 2 of the rare 9th Circuit judges who have actually read the 2nd Amendment.

So this decision will be reversed soon, and the 9th Circuit will regain its shoddy reputation after experiencing a rare moment of constitutional clarity.  Too bad.

Fake Indian Senator want heap big wampum. – In case anyone still maintained illusions otherwise, lifelong fraud Senator Elizabeth Warren made her and her fellow Democrats’ money-grabbing intentions crystal clear in a CNBC interview yesterday.  She told the preening fake host John Harwood that Democrats intend to immediately reverse the Trump tax cuts if they gain congressional majorities this November, and suggested the top marginal income tax rate should be raised to “well above 50%.”

Hey, maybe that’s why the very wealthy (how did he become that way on a government salary?) ex-FBI Director and Current Teenage Drama Queen James Comey is having second thoughts about encouraging everyone to vote Democrat this fall.  Go figure.

California values in action! – The Democrat-dominated California state government recently de-criminalized the act of intentionally giving another person AIDS, but the City of Santa Barbara just passed an ordinance mandating jail time for any food service employee caught in the heinous act of….wait for it….oh, you gotta wait for this one…PASSING OUT PLASTIC STRAWS TO CUSTOMERS!  I swear I do not make this stuff up.

The amiable dunce issues a subtle warning. – This is one I forgot to include in yesterday’s Evening Campaign Update, in which I laid out some of the ways in which it feels like the tide is finally turning on the whole Democrat/Media invented Russia Collusion fantasy play.  My bad.

Former Obama Administration Director of National Intelligence James Clapper seems for all appearances like sort of an amiable dunce.  His interviews on TV and dishonest congressional testimonies are often amusing to watch as he fumbles around for words and contorts his very malleable face into all sorts of odd configurations as he seemingly searches for exactly the right way to mislead.

But Clapper is a spy, a longtime intelligence operative, and as such it is important to remember that a lot of that fumbling around and contorting is done for effect.  This is a very clever man who knows how to subtly – or not so subtly – engage in a CYA operation on national television.

Well, ok, it was on CNN, which counts as “national television” these days only in the sense that it seems to be on the public TVs in every airport in America 24 hours a day, but still.  In an interview Monday evening with the terminally boring and petulant Anderson Cooper, Clapper, seeing the walls beginning to close in around him with the release of the documentation for the fraudulent FISA warrants, apparently decided it was time for Operation CYA to engage in earnest.

And engage he did, in the process tossing a very recognizable individual under the proverbial bus:

“If it weren’t for President Obama we might not have done the intelligence community assessment that we did that set up a whole sequence of events which are still unfolding today, notably Special Counsel Mueller’s investigation. President Obama is responsible for that. It was he who tasked us to do that intelligence community assessment in the first place.”

Man, this guy doesn’t fool around.  Other, less bold people in his circumstances might have tried sloughing responsibility off onto, say, ex-CIA Director John Brennan or the aforementioned Teen Drama Queen, but not Clapper – Clapper goes right to the main guy, the Capo de Tutti Capi, the Big Kahuna, Barack “The One” Hussein Obama his own self.

In doing so, Clapper perhaps appropriately assumes the posture taken by all those Nazi Generals back in 1945 who told their captors “hey, we were just following orders.”

I’m not sure it’s going to work, but you almost have to admire the chutzpah.

Just another day in the truth will all come out in the end America.

That is all.
