Trump Cancels California Rail Boondoggle Funding

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

In a move that is certain to enrage the perpetually-enraged political left and our fake news media, the Trump Administration today moved to rescind a portion of the $3.5 billion in federal funds previously dedicated to California’s disastrous high-speed rail boondoggle.  In a letter to Brian Kelly, Director of the California High-Speed Rail Authority, Federal Railroad Administration Director Ronald Batory had this to say:

“This letter provides notice to the California High-Speed Rail Authority (CHSRA) that the Federal Railroad Administration (FRA) intends to terminate Cooperative Agreement No. FR­ HSR-0118-12-01-01 (Agreement) effective March 5, 2019. Following termination, FRA also intends to promptly de-obligate the full $928,620,000 obligated under the Agreement.

FRA has determined that CHSRA has materially failed to comply with the terms of the Agreement and has failed to make reasonable progress on the Project (as defined in the Agreement), significantly endangering substantial performance . Considering this determination, FRA intends to exercise its right to terminate the Agreement, consistent with Section 23 of the Agreement.”

A link to the full document can be found here, but you get the drift.

In a February 19 tweet, President Trump made it clear, when California Governor Gavin Newsom canceled 2/3rds of the planned project, that he intends to rescind the entire $3.5 billion:

California has been forced to cancel the massive bullet train project after having spent and wasted many billions of dollars. They owe the Federal Government three and a half billion dollars. We want that money back now. Whole project is a “green” disaster!

— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) February 14, 2019

Newsom responded to the threat in typical haughty fashion with a tweet of his own:

Fake news. We’re building high-speed rail, connecting the Central Valley and beyond. This is CA’s money, allocated by Congress for this project. We’re not giving it back. The train is leaving the station — better get on board! (Also, desperately searching for some wall $$??) https://t.co/9hxEfEX8Vm

— Gavin Newsom (@GavinNewsom) February 14, 2019

Well, the ball is now in the Governor’s court. We can be sure the wailing will be loud, dishonest and totally coordinated with our fake news media. Because that’s how Democrats operate in America today.

That is all.

The Democrat/Media Smear Machine Shifts Into Overdrive

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

It’s gonna be all-smear all the time at CNN and MSNBC. – You can always tell what the fake news media’s marching orders from the DNC are on any given day by looking at what they’re doing on Twitter. Especially in the evenings, Twitter is always the leading indicator of where the next day’s narrative will be going.

Last night, we got this little gem from @CNNPolitics:

That “federal prosector” is, of course, Connecticut U.S. Attorney John Durham, who has been tapped by Attorney General William Barr to lead his investigation into the origins of the massive 2016 effort mounted by the FBI to spy on and entrap members of the Trump Campaign and Trump Transition team. Durham does indeed come to the task with an “apolitical” reputation thanks to decades of major accomplishments in both Republican and Democrat administrations.

It is that reputation that CNN, MSNBC and the rest of the Democrat/Media smear machine will now go about trying to tarnish any way they possibly can. They will do this not because there is anything wrong with Mr. Durham or what he is attempting to accomplish, but because they themselves are a pack of frightened, cornered rats with nowhere else to go.

So, today’s first attack on Durham will be that he is now being used as a sword by the Bad Orange Man in the Oval Office who tarnishes everyone around him. Likely suspect James Comey, our national Teenage Drama Queen, set that narrative up in his conveniently-scheduled “townhall” on – guess where? – CNN last week, and the rest of the Democrats and media have slavishly grasped onto it and parrotted it ever since.

In this world view, everyone around the President becomes corrupted by his personal aura. Thus, William Barr is corrupt; thus, John Durham must also be corrupt. See how that works? Convenient, right? It’s like Climate Change theory, where everything that happens, regardless of what it is, can be blamed on a handy catch-all bogeyman.

While that narrative is ongoing, the next step is for the New York Times and Washington Post to assign a small army of fake reporters and research staff to dig into every aspect of Durham’s background and personal life in an effort to find something else – preferably something real, but that’s not a requirement –  with which to smear his reputation. If that effort fails, they will just fall back on publishing fake stories that rely on their standard “unidentified sources” to do the job.

This is all right there in the Democrat/media playbook, their second-most-used tactic, right behind the always-reliable “projection.”

The other big thing that happened on Twitter last night was that the hashtag #LindseyGrahamResign was trending for several hours. This little bit of social media shaming popped up after Graham introduced a bill that would actually be a great approach to helping alleviate the ongoing invasion at our Southern border by allowing the Trump Administration to hold aliens making dubious asylum claims for 100 days rather than having to just release them into the population after 20 days.

That makes all kinds of sense given that 87% of these illegals never show up for their scheduled adjudication hearings. The extra 80 days would give the system time to process them and send well over 90% of them back to their country of origin once it is determined they have no legitimate claim to asylum in the United States.

But the Democrats can’t have that, because they view these illegal immigrants as a huge future voter bloc. So, now Lindsey Graham must be shamed and smeared by the Democrat/media smear machine.

Really, this is threatening to get out of hand for the bad guys, since they already have so many other smears ongoing. They have to keep smearing President Trump; they and fake Republican Sen. Richard Burr feel the need to keep smearing Don, Jr.; they’ve been going after Barr since they figured out that he wasn’t the deep state plant they all hoped he would become; they’re mounting this budding campaign against Durham and now will go after their former 2nd-favorite Republican squish (when he was following John McCain around like a puppy on a leash) Lindsey Graham?

Man, that’s a lot of smearing to get done. Even on 24-hour cable news channels, that’s really stretching the available air time.

So, they’re going to have to crank the smear machine into overdrive. If you are planning to travel through our nation’s airports, where you will become part of CNN’s captive audience, you might want to invest in a good set of earplugs.

That is all.

William Barr Takes the Next Big Step

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

Who is John Durham and why should you care? – Good question, and certainly not one I’d ever thought about before last night. That was when the New York Times published an article that appears to be actually true – who’d ‘a thunk it? – containing the news that Attorney General William Barr has appointed Mr. Durham, the U.S. Attorney from Connecticut, to oversee the origins of the Obama Administration’s multi-faceted spying operation targeting the Trump Campaign

Here’s an excerpt from that piece:

WASHINGTON — Attorney General William P. Barr has assigned the top federal prosecutor in Connecticut to examine the origins of the Russia investigation, according to two people familiar with the matter, a move that President Trump has long called for but that could anger law enforcement officials who insist that scrutiny of the Trump campaign was lawful.

John H. Durham, the United States attorney in Connecticut, has a history of serving as a special prosecutor investigating potential wrongdoing among national security officials, including the F.B.I.’s ties to a crime boss in Boston and accusations of C.I.A. abuses of detainees.

His inquiry is the third known investigation focused on the opening of an F.B.I. counterintelligence investigation during the 2016 presidential campaign into possible ties between Russia’s election interference and Trump associates.

The department’s inspector general, Michael E. Horowitz, is separately examining investigators’ use of wiretap applications and informants and whether any political bias against Mr. Trump influenced investigative decisions. And John W. Huber, the United States attorney in Utah, has been reviewing aspects of the Russia investigation. His findings have not been announced.

Additionally on Capitol Hill, Senator Lindsey Graham, Republican of South Carolina and chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, has said he, too, intends to review aspects of law enforcement’s work in the coming months. And Republicans conducted their own inquiries when they controlled the House, including publicizing details of the F.B.I.’s wiretap use.

[End excerpt]

Lots to unpack here.

First, if you’re worried that the assignment of the investigation to Durham is just another head-fake/delaying tactic by a corrupt Justice Department, that concern is well-founded given all the previous head-fakes and delaying tactics we’ve seen over the past couple of years. After all, a full year and a half has gone by since feckless former AG Jeff Sessions said he was assigning Salt Lake City U.S. Attorney John Huber to conduct an investigation into many aspects of the Russia Collusion fantasy, and we have yet to hear boo out of him or see any real indication he’s done a damn thing in that regard.

But of course, that was Jeff Sessions and now we have William Barr in the AG job. Hopefully, that makes a difference. Barr was always going to assign this investigation to someone under his supervision – it was either that or appoint another special counsel to do it, and assigning it to a U.S. Attorney gives Barr fuller control over the direction of the process. That’s either a good or a bad thing depending entirely on what Barr’s real intentions are.

Barr has certainly given us every indication he is a real AG focused on enforcing the rule of law and bringing the real bad actors in all of this to justice, which is why we have seen all the Democrats and their media toadies in such a panic in recent weeks. Justice is the last thing those people want to see.

At any rate, any major undertaking like this requires a focal point to lead it, and Durham is Barr’s pick to do it. It is encouraging that Durham was originally brought into the Justice Department during the Reagan Administration in 1982, and was appointed to his current position by Donald Trump in 2017. It is also encouraging that he has not been a creature of the Washington, DC Swamp, serving the majority of his career in Connecticut with a four year period as the Acting U.S. Attorney in the Eastern District of Virginia from 2008-12.

If you’re concerned that this will be another Huber-like year-and-a-half-long head-fake that gets us to the November, 2020 election with nothing to show for it, there is also reason for optimism that that won’t be the case. Given the flurry of self-serving media appearances we have seen from likely suspects like James Comey, James Baker, John Brennan and Sally Yates over the past couple of weeks, it appears likely that the upcoming report on FISA abuse from DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz has been making the rounds and might well contain criminal referrals.

Yeah, Horowitz took a powder on doing that in last year’s report on the FBI’s conduct of the Clinton email investigation, but that was when Sessions was AG. Hopefully, the presence of a real AG will embolden the IG’s office to do the right thing. It’s easier to confront powerful people when you know you have powerful people backing you up.

Let’s say that happens, and let’s recognize that Durham will also be armed with multiple criminal referrals from various congressional committees that have been issued to the Justice Department over the last year. Armed with the results of the multiple Horowitz investigations and all the data accumulated by the congressional investigations over the past two years, Durham should be able to move to the indictment and prosecution phase fairly rapidly if that is his real goal here.

Let’s be painfully honest: We know who the bad actors in all of this really were. The public record already accumulated is crystal clear on this. All that has been lacking to this point is a real Attorney General and a set of diligent prosecutors who were willing to act on behalf of the public interest and uphold the rule of law.

With Rod Rosenstein’s exit from DOJ, the last of the known obstructionists to justice is now gone. Well, except for FBI Director Christopher Wray, anyway. All we the people can do now is wait and pray they haven’t been replaced by a new set of obstructionists.

It won’t take long to figure that out.

That is all.

Meet the New Beto, Same as the Old Beto

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

Today’s Public Service Announcement! – The “World’s Fastest Train” has been unveiled in Japan, y’all! Guess what? It is designed to sail along at speeds up to … wait for it… 224 miles per hour! Which is, lessee here…. almost half as fast as the average airliner. Almost. Oh, and it won’t be operational until the year 2030, which is coincidentally the year before Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez tells us we’re all going to burn up and die if we don’t get rid of air travel and replace it millions of miles of rail lines.

Dear Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and other fans of her appeal to abject nitwits, the Green New Deal: This dog don’t hunt. Just thought I’d remind you. Plus, it’s stupid-looking. Seriously, it looks like something out of a 1960s-era cartoon:

Dubbed the Alfa-X, it is capable of reaching speeds of up to 224 mph and consists of ten carriages. Its sleek silver design is matched by its incredible long and pointed nose which stretches for 72 feet n front of it (pictured)

 

Don’t look now, but Irish Bob O’Rourke is about to “reintroduce” himself again. – But the crucial question is, will the mental teenagers in our fake news media fall in love with their former heartthrob one more time?

Image may contain: 1 person, smiling, text

The smart money says ‘no’ – it’s really hard to recreate the magic of that first high school crush. Once the bad breakup occurs, there is rarely any going back.

After Irish Bob let it be known late last week that he plans to “launch” his flagging presidential campaign one more time, I’ve been watching to see which U.S. national publication would be the first to do yet another fawning “profile” of him, complete with nasty comments about Ted Cruz, descriptions of El Paso and/or West Texas as “dusty”, misrepresentations about the origins of the fake nickname he gave to himself, and the required comparisons to some Kennedy or another. Would it be Vanity Fair one more time? Might Rolling Stone jump in again? How about the New York Times or the Washington Post? They’ve all done it before – would they find the waters to be still warm and give their ex-boyfriend another date to the local Pizza Hut?

Uh, no. As it turns out, the O’Rourke campaign apparently was unable to even catch coffee at Starbucks with any of its fake journalist exes, having to resort instead to grabbing a sandwich at Wichy Wich with some reporter from the UK Guardian. And what a soggy sandwich it turns out to be, which is only fitting for such a horrifically-run campaign.

Oh, the piece has the required “dusty” reference contained in literally every profile ever done about Irish Bob, when it describes El Paso as “the dusty, sunbaked border town in Texas where he was born”. The writer even goes so far as to outright lie about the fake nickname, calling O’Rourke “the tall white guy with the funny first name” in the piece’s opening paragraph. My goodness, the piece even makes the jump to include a quote from one of Irish Bob’s teenage flames (no doubt referred to him by the O’Rourke campaign), someone named Maggie Asfahani, who makes her living as – guess what? – a writer!  Because of course she does.

As if it is helpful, Asfahani says she is responsible for the famous photo of Irish Bob wearing a dress in a promo for his punk band, Foss: “I want to put on the record, that is my dress he’s wearing,” she said.

Oh.

Image result for beto in a dress

No doubt the O’Rourke campaign had longed for the standard puff piece that their candidate has become used to receiving from the national U.S. media and Texas-based outlets like the Texas Tribune and Houston Chronicle, but this one does not fit the U.S. media’s cut-n-paste mold. There is no comparison to anyone named Kennedy, and the Guardian’s piece is otherwise a fairly objective recital of O’Rourke’s political history and inconsistencies.

Not the launch – or re-launch – our hero was seeking.

Like everything else Irish Bob has done since losing his Texas senate race against Senator Cruz last November, this “re-introduction” comes too late, and displays nothing more prominently than a singular lack of situational awareness on this part.

In politics, it is crucial for a candidate to strike while the iron is hot, an aspect of the game that Donald Trump understands better than any national figure since Bill Clinton. Last November, the media’s best boyfriend could have made himself into an instant front-runner in the Democrat nomination race by announcing his candidacy the day after his loss.

Yes, doing that would have been ‘too soon’ and ‘presumptuous’ according to the conventional wisdom. But O’Rourke’s image at that time was made by being presumptuous and going against the conventional grain. By dawdling around and waiting to announce his campaign in March, he traded that image for one of being indecisive and unreliable, which is pretty much his life’s history.

And that’s it – he can’t get that back. The opportunity to stand out in the race is now gone – the field is too crowded and the fickle teen-mentality media has moved on to other crushes. If you want a comparison to 2016 and the crowded GOP field that sought the nomination, Irish Bob is this cycle’s Scott Walker, the “hot” candidate who everyone thought at one point would be that year’s BIG DEAL, but never was.

Walker left the 2016 race before it ever actually even got to 2016, ending his dead-broke candidacy in September of 2015, after just two months of debates in which he had utterly failed to make a good impression. Irish Bob is probably too self-absorbed and clueless to make a similarly-fast exit from the stage, but he might as well.

He’s done.

That is all.

The Week in Review: What, Me Worry?

The Campaign Update Week in Review
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

[The week just past as chronicled on the @GDBlackmon Twitter feed.]

The week began with a perfect meme of fake conservative CNN commentator Anna Navarro sounding just like Joseph Goebbels. It only got better from there.

Jessica Fletcher accurately sums up our fake news media’s biased coverage of hostilities between Israel and Hamas, which were instigated entirely by Hamas, though you’d never know it from reading the Associated Press.

The Pantsuit Princess, who stole the 2016 Democrat nomination and coordinated with Barack Obama to try to steal the general election, was still running around claiming the election was stolen from her. Because projection is what Democrats do.:

Meanwhile, at the Met Gala in New York, they were rolling out the Coughing Crook’s new wardrobe as she preps her run for the 2020 nomination.:

Creepy Uncle Joe was fumbling through the Democrat Playbook in South Carolina, doing his best to scare the Black folks with the contemptible lie that Republicans want to “bring back Jim Crow” laws. *sigh*:

But hey, fumbling through the playbook got the old hack a big lead over the field, as The Commie and all the media’s “rising stars” tumbled around in his wake.:

Seriously, does anybody care?:

More layoffs were taking place at CNN, but no one who is actually responsible for the collapse of this fake news channels ratings will suffer.:

Rob Schneider proved that not everyone in the entertainment industry is a vain, vacuous nitwit.:

Former FBI official Kevin Brock summed up the precarious legal position of ex-FBI Director and current Teenage Drama Queen James Comey.:

Nancy Pelosi engages in outright seditionist speech on pretty much a daily basis now.:

No, seriously, what is it?:

True. But amazingly, he’s still not quite as dumb as Kirsten Gillibrand.:

CNN’s Royal Eunuch was shoved out in front of the cameras to assure all those CNN employees who’d just been laid off that they weren’t really laid off.:

Things were going so great with the economy and otherwise for President Donald Trump that the news-fakers at the New York Times decided they needed to reach into their bag of negative stuff and toss some of it out there. It didn’t work. It never does.:

Louisiana Senator John Kennedy was gettin’ real tired of James Comey’s bullshit.:

Greg Budell and I came up with a great new nickname for repugnant California Cong. Eric Swalwell: El Rey de las Gilipollas. Has a catchy ring to it. Swalwell’s so dumb he’ll probably take it as a compliment.:

Whenever she wasn’t talking sedition, San Fran Nan was talking gibberish. Sometimes, she did both at once.:

Jerrold Nadler said we are “in a constitutional crisis,” and it was obvious that everyone in the fake news media had gotten their daily DNC/Media Talking Points Memo well in advance.:

Meanwhile, ostensibly-Republican Senator Richard Burr was busy facilitating the Democrat Party’s ongoing efforts to destroy our country through the Senate Intelligence Committee, which he chairs.:

Ohio Rep. Jim Jordan nails it here.:

Measles epidemics were breaking out all over the world. Welcome to the joys of open borders, folks.:

Oily Rod Rosenstein finally left the Department of Justice this week. Never forget the truth about this skunk.:

If you missed this, you should read it now. Seriously, just read it.:

President Trump’s public approval ratings surged to an all-time high with so much #WINNING going on in our economy…:

…which had the fake news media in a bit of a panic.:

Rand Paul was not happy with Richard Burr. Not happy at all.:

If you don’t follow Titania McGrath on Twitter, you are really missing out.:

With Creepy Uncle Joe dominating the polls, it was a race to the bottom for the Democrat also-rans, never-weres and former “rising stars”.:

Could she take Juan Williams with her? Asking for a friend.:

The Teenage Drama Queen had himself a “townhall” show on CNN Thursday night. He’d have been better off huddling with his defense lawyers.:

Someone really should let the Teen Drama Queen know he has a right to remain silent.:

Jabba the Nadler announced on Friday that Robert Mueller would not be testifying before his Kangaroo Court Committee anytime soon. Most likely, Jabba is getting cold feet because he suddenly realized that Mueller would have to take questions from Republicans, too. That would not be a good thing for the Deep State Jabba is sworn to protect.:

Haven’t heard much from Ann Coulter lately – maybe this is why.:

If only it were true…:

Legend in her own mind Stacey Abrams – who continues to “identify” as the Governor of Georgia despite losing by 55,000 votes – took Trump Derangement Syndrome to new heights. You seriously cannot make this stuff up, folks.:

I never thought anyone could be more tiresome than John “Didja Know My Dad Was A Postman” Kasich. Bill Weld proved me wrong.:

The week ended with President Trump delivering another classic kill shot, this time at current media prom date Mayor Pete.:

No one who sees this mashup will ever be able to get it out of their mind.:

Stacey Abrams Takes TDS to a New Level

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

Dobroye utro, druz’ya! – Please excuse me, I’m just brushing up on my Russian.

Good morning, friends! – Every time I think the rhetoric from prominent Democrats in our beautiful motherland, er, United States of America cannot possibly become more absurdly demented than it already is, one of them goes right out and proves me wrong.

Enter Georgia gubernatorial loser and Legend in Her Own Mind Stacey Abrams, who went full Russkie yesterday while speaking to an event called National Security Action Forum put on by some leftist organization that doesn’t actually give a tinker’s damn about national security. After being told by despicable former Obama advisor (ok, the “despicable” is redundant there) Ben Rhodes that her rather pedestrian response to this year’s State of the Union Address was “the single best speech” we’ve heard in the past two years, the Georgia also-ran went off on a riff about the Democrat fantasy hobgoblin of “voter supression,” and it turned epic.

Epic in an utterly and pitifully demented and absurd way, that is. As she rambled on, blaming her favorite bogeyman for her 55,000 vote loss despite her having gotten every vote from every dead person in the state of Georgia, she said the situation with “voter suppression” is so dire that it will cause us all to be speaking the Mother Tongue in barely a decade:

Abrams calls voter suppression a national security threat to the nation. “If we do not secure our democracy in 2020 … we will be having a very different conversation, potentially in Russian, in 2030.”

Really and truly, how do you even respond to something that silly? Byron York found a way:

That is true, but here’s the thing: Your Democrat friends pretty much have all bought into this sort of raging dementia and take it very, very seriously.

You know what the real threat to our nation is? Lies spread by Democrats like Abrams and their toadies in the fake news media. The real threat to our nation is that objective truth has no meaning anymore to fully 33% of the country and 98% of our national news media. The real threat to our nation is that the report from a 2 year-long Witch Hunt can fully exonerate the President and the Democrats and their media toadies act like it never happened.

The real threat to our nation is that a pedestrian loser and pathological liar like Stacey Abrams can be broadly considered by one of our two major political parties as a perfectly fine vice presidential running mate for its looming near-octogenarian presidential candidate, who himself is a pathological liar who has been comically wrong about literally every major issue for half a century.

Understand that this woman who thinks we’ll all be speaking Russian in a decade if Donald Trump is re-elected decided not to run for the Georgia senate seat in 2020 because she’s already made a backroom deal with Joe Biden to be his running mate, which means she could well be one very frail heartbeat away from the presidency come January, 2021.

If a Republican – any Republican – had said in 2012 what Abrams said on Friday, he’d have been mercilessly panned and ridiculed by every media outlet and late-night television host for weeks, and deservedly so. But let a barely-coherent Democrat loser say it, and all the media puppet heads just nod in unison like an array of bobble-head dolls.

And the 33% of our citizens who like to call themselves Democrats nod right along with them.

Sheep.

That is all.

The Democrats Won’t Stop the Madness Until They’re Stopped

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

Several times a week, I get some variation of this question: “When are the Democrats going to stop all of this madness?” – The simple answer, of course, is that they aren’t. The behavior of the leaders of the Democrat Party and their toadies in the fake news media is only going to become increasingly radical and unhinged until they are stopped.

Many had thought – hoped – that their despicable daily behavior would calm down somewhat after the Mueller Witch Hunt had shut down and exonerated President Donald Trump. That obviously didn’t happen, and the Democrats and their media toadies did what they always do: Double-down on deception.

Attorney General William Barr released a 95% un-redacted version of the Mueller Report, and the Democrats screamed “cover-up!” Then he made 99% of the Report available to all Democrat members of congress, and they screamed “cover-up!” Then he spent a total now of more than 20 hours testifying before various congressional committees about it, and the Democrats in the House decided to hold him in contempt for telling the truth and refusing to break the law.

If this doesn’t strike you as normal behavior, that’s because it is decidedly abnormal behavior.

As we’ve said many times before here at the Campaign Update, nothing the Democrats do is normal or organic. Everything they do and say in public is pre-planned, coordinated with their media toadies, and highly scripted, all designed to reflect their narrative of the day. This is why Rush Limbaugh is able to cobble together those hilarious montage clips of dozens of Democrats/talking heads/fake reporters using exactly the same words on some given issue 2-3 times every week. He could do it every day if his staff had the time.

Yesterday’s narrative, for example, was “we’re in a constitutional crisis,” which happens to be true since the Democrats, led by San Fran Nan and Jabba the Nadler, have worked very hard over the past couple of months to create such a crisis out of whole cloth. After his committee held its kangaroo court vote to hold Barr in “contempt of congress” Wednesday afternoon, Nadler promptly rushed to the nearest camera to declare that “we are in a constitutional crisis.”

As if on cue – because it was on cue – every Democrat spokesman on TV, every fake host on CNN and MSNBC, every news anchor on the major networks and every political writer at the major fake newspapers began using those exact words in all of their reporting. This narrative continued through Thursday as well, along with the incredibly stupid non-story about Trump’s losing a bunch of money back in the 1980s/early 1990s, a story he told himself in his book “The Art of the Comeback” and on his TV show “The Apprentice.”

To understand why they behave the way they do, you must understand the Democrat hive-mindset. Simply put, Democrats believe they are entitled to political power. They believe they are smarter than you are, they believe they are more moral and caring and compassionate than you are, and because they believe those things, they also believe they have the right to tell you how to live your lives.

Just a decade ago, they thought they had consolidated that power and the ability to dictate everything you do every day on a permanent basis. They’d just elected America’s Worst Mistake, Barack Hussein Obama, and empowered him with massive majority control of both houses of congress. They had shoved through a massive fake ‘stimulus’ package designed to nothing but expand the scope and scale of an array of federal regulatory agencies, had their EPA working on regulating your drainage ditches and backyard ponds, had their congress extending those 6-month unemployment benefits to a near-permanent entitlement, and were working on a cap and trade system on carbon that would bankrupt whatever was left of Obama’s economy and a bill to nationalize the nation’s healthcare system.

All was bliss and kisses in Democrat fantasy land. It was 2009, and the narrative then, repeated endlessly by all the talking heads and fake reporters, was that the Democrats now had created a “permanent majority” in our country, and America was thus entering its “new normal.”

And here’s the thing that has the Democrat so perpetually enraged today: They believed their own bullshit. (Pardon my language.) They do that all the time, actually – see the whole “Russia Collusion” fantasy play as the latest grand example.

But they are all so enraged today – and become more enraged with each passing hour – because they still believe that bullshit. They still believe they are the chosen ones, the ones to dictate to all you little people out there in Flyover Country, the ones who are entitled to power.

That’s the mindset that led Barack Obama and James Comey and John Brennan and Peter Strzok and Andrew McCabe and Sally Yates and all manner of other high Obama officials to engage in a plot to fix the 2016 elections and then to try and fail to execute a coup d’etat on American soil. They did all of that because they really, truly did believe they were entitled to do it, and that the Pantsuit Princess was entitled to the presidency.

They created Antifa, a violent terrorist organization, in response to Trump’s election because they believe they are entitled to power. They created the Mueller Witch Hunt because they believe they are entitled to power. They’ve created this constitutional crisis because they believe they are entitled to power.

Between today and November 2020, they will continued to ramp up the insanity and violence because they believe they are entitled to power. And after Donald Trump is re-elected, the Democrats and their media toadies will still continue to ramp up the insanity.

Until someone stops them. Until the people who committed all of these bad acts start being prosecuted and going to prison. A lot of them. And if that never happens, if the day never comes when they know they will be subject to prosecution for committing these seditious, treasonous acts against our country, the Democrats and their media toadies will keep ramping up the insanity until they have whipped our nation into another civil war.

These are not people who can be reasoned with, because they are not rational people. They must be defeated and they must be stopped. If William Barr and the Department of Justice are not up to this task, then God help us.

Led by Nadler, Despicable House Democrats Hold the Nation Hostage

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

Strategery, Democrat style. – So, first you create a Constitutional crisis by taking a vote of the House Judiciary Committee to hold the Attorney General of the United States in contempt over an absurd claim that he “lied” to the Committee a month ago (he didn’t), and that he won’t release a full, unredacted version of the Mueller Report to congress so the Democrats can leak parts of it to their pals at the New York Times (he can’t do that without committing a felony himself).

After you’ve done that, you send Jabba the Nadler out to tell the breathless, fawning fake news media that the country is in a Constitutional crisis:

Oh, wait, wrong clip. Here you go:

See how that works?  Odd, huh?

Let’s all remember that every step of what has happened with Jabba The Nadler’s committee this year was all pre-planned way back in November, just days after the election. That was when Sr. Editor at The Federalist Mollie Hemingway happened to be sitting across the aisle on an Amtrak train from Jabba, and overheard him having a loud telephone conversation in which he bragged about his and Nancy Pelosi’s and Adam Schiff’s plans to do everything you’ve seen taking place this year. She wrote this prescient piece on November 7, yet all of her “colleagues” in the fake news media continue to pretend this is all taking place organically, because the Democrats just can’t help doing what they’re doing because of the Orange Man Bad in the White House.

None of this is organic. Never forget that everything today’s Democrats do is Kabuki theater designed to deceive their shamefully dimwitted and uninformed voter base. They believe most Americans are hopelessly dense, clueless and uninformed of actual facts, and believe they can just lie to them with impunity as a means of obtaining and maintaining political power. Sadly, they are often correct.

It’s also important to remember these things as well:

  • Barr has already release about 95% of the Mueller Report to the public – Democrats say this is not enough;
  • Barr has already made 98% of the Mueller Report available for Democrat members of congress to view in a secure room without the ability to make copies of it that they could leak to the press. Not one Democrat has taken advantage of viewing it in the 3 weeks that it’s been available;
  • Barr legally cannot make 100% available to the public because some of the material in the Report is protected grand jury information. He knows if he allows skunks and snakes like Jabba and Adam Schiff and Eric Swallwell to have the full report, the full report will appear on the front page of the New York Times and the Washington Post the next morning;
  • The courts have consistently held that grand jury information must be withheld from the public in order to protect the rights of persons who offered testimony but were not pursued by said grand juries. In pursuing this information for the purpose of leaking it to the fake news media, congressional Democrats are actively attempting to harm U.S. citizens who are innocent of any crime.

That’s the reality of this silly situation, which has been intentionally and completely artificially constructed out of whole cloth by despicable congressional Democrats and their even more-despicable buddies in the news media.

Of course, by going down this particular road they have essentially left President Donald Trump with no choice but to exercise his right to executive privilege over not just the Mueller Report, but over any and all documents related to it. This is a right the President could have exercised throughout the abusive Mueller Witch Hunt, but chose not to do so in the name of cooperating with the Chief of the American Gestapo.

That the President now feels the need to exercise that right as it relates to the House of Representatives tells us exactly how abusive the despicable Democrats have become in their desperate effort to smear Attorney General William Barr.

One final reminder: The Democrats and their media toadies are desperate to smear Barr in the public consciousness because Barr has repeatedly promised to get to the bottom of the Obama Administration’s massive spying activities targeted at the Trump Campaign throughout 2016. They all know that if he succeeds in that quest, people are going to prison.

So this is not just a fight for raw political power: For many of these despicable people, it is a fight for survival. These are the reasons the Democrat Party is basically holding our nation hostage.

It is a fight they must lose if our nation is to maintain a system of real justice.

That is all.

Watch Nancy Pelosi Talk Gibberish at a Washington Post Event

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

Regular readers know I like to say that if Democrats did not exist, the most creative fiction writer alive today could never in a million years make them up. No one personifies this principle of American life more starkly than our own favorite Speaker of the Gibberish, er, of the House, San Fran Nan Pelosi.

The latest example of our mush-mouthed Speaker talking slurring gibberish in public came Wednesday morning at some event hosted by the Democrat Party toadies at the Washington Post. Pelosi was doing her best to make some point about the supposed dastardly deeds of President Donald Trump, but all she succeeded in doing was making a point about her own creeping dementia and illiteracy. Here’s a clip, courtesy of Ryan Saavedra at Daily Wire (Transcript follows below).:

For those of you who still like to read and those of you who watched that clip and have no earthly idea what Mz. Mushmouth just tried to say, I have performed the immense personal service of transcribing her remarks verbatim. Here you go.:

“And ah have sshed the prezdent is goading us into … wants to goad us into impeachment because that..he knows w,uh, do I that (inhale) uh, muh, that’s uh…not a good thing for the counwro I know maybe he knows that but…he knows that I think that, let’s put it that way. Huh knows that I think that. But the fff, fff, the point is, is that every single day…whether it’s obstruction, obstruction, obstruction, obstruction of having, you know, people come to the table with facts…ugnoring subpoenas and oist…every single day the prezdent is making a case…he’s make…he’s becoming self-impeachable in terms of some of the things he is doing.”

Clear as mud, right? Right. Even the extremely Democrat-friendly hacks over at Slate haven’t got he slightest clue what she meant by this statement.

Now, laugh all you want at the Speaker’s inability to form complete sentences or express cogent thoughts without a script (or even with one, for that matter), but think about this: This incoherent apparent half-wit is two heartbeats away from becoming president.

Still laughing now? Yes?

Ok, so am I.

That is all.
