The Week in Review: Democrats Gone Wild!

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

[Editor’s Note: The Campaign Update will be silent from July 11 through July 23 because Dave needs some down time.]

It’s hard to imagine how the week just past could have gone any worse for America’s Democrat Party, i.e., the Party of Antifa, the Party of AOC, the Party of Socialism, the Party of open borders, the Party of Creepy Uncle Joe and The Commie and Fauxcahontas and rioting and flag-burning and lying fake news media and protesting celebrations of America’s Independence Day.

Seriously, when the three most lasting images of the week are of Antifa rioters assaulting dozens of innocent Americans in Portland and Washington, DC, leftist protesters burning the American flag on July 4, and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez lying relentlessly about things she did not actually see or do on a trip to the U.S./Mexico border, your party is having a week to forget.

The week began horribly for the Dems, as President Donald Trump made history by becoming the first U.S. president to walk across the DMZ into North Korea. Despite the best efforts of the media to suppress them, the images of that historic moment for peace went viral all over social media for the next several days. All grumpy Democrats could do was whine about the meeting somehow legitimizing the Crazy Little Fat Guy, but in reality, all that did in the public’s mind was make the Dems sound like a bunch of, well, grumps.

The early week festivities continued with Irish Bob O’Rourke, so desperate over his failure to attract votes in the United States, going across the border into Mexico to campaign instead. There, Mexican citizens no doubt made much fun of the freakish, arm-waving yankee.

Oh, but it just got better on the border, folks, much better – if you aren’t a Democrat, that is. Cory Spartacus Booker, seeing Irish Bob’s stunt as a challenge, decided it would be a great thing for him to go down to the border and break all sorts of U.S. laws by personally escorting illegal aliens into the United States. While Spartacus was no doubt duly impressed with his own self, few actual Americans noticed, and fewer still were similarly impressed.

Not to be outdone, AOC, partly participating in a tour of a detention facility in Clint, Texas with 13 fellow Democrat demagogues, caused an uproar, which is her only true core competency. She began screaming at U.S. Customs and Border Patrol personnel as soon as she entered the facility, then refused to participate in the tour, choosing instead to park herself in a holding area as the rest of the group went through the building. She then posted a series of abject lies on her Twitter feed, pretending to have actually toured the facility. Her supporters went nuts – which is also the only thing they’re any good at doing – and it took two days for the truth to actually filter out, by which time the actress AOC had moved on to her next performance.

AOC’s week ended with San Fran Nan throwing her under the bus in a fawining, softball interview with the terminally smarmy Maureen Dowd in the New York Times.

Oof.

Creepy Uncle Joe Biden spent the entire week clarifying, apologizing, and lashing out at his tormentors as he watched his standing in the various polls fade, as it inevitably must. By the end of the week, two separate polls had his once-grand 20+ point lead over the field sitting at just 2% ahead of the opportunistic Kamala Harris. Biden’s faithful army of fake media defenders were left only to brag about his “huge” fundraising haul of $21 million for the second quarter of the year, always forgetting to point out that President Trump raised $24 million in the first 24 hours after he formally announced his candidacy.

Ouch.

Then came July 4, and the wonderful celebration of America’s Independence planned and staged by your President, Donald J. Trump. The Dems and their media hacks had spent the entire week slamming the entire thing as just another Trump campaign event, but any American who actually watched the festivities and failed to be inspired by it is most likely, well, a Democrat. Everyone else thought it was wonderful.

While ordinary Americans were celebrating their wonderful nation, Democrats all across the country were burning flags and assaulting other Americans. Meanwhile, their presidential candidates, all of whom had spent the week slamming the President for presumably “politicizing” Independence Day, spent July 4th at campaign events where they slammed the President and politicized Independence Day.

You seriously can’t make this stuff up, folks.

There was a raft of great news for America and Americans this week, and great news for America and Americans was, as always, terrible news for the Democrat Party. The stock market reached new all-time highs during the week for about the 65,000th time in the Trump presidency, throwing Morning Joe and the editorial board at the New York Times into fits of depression.

Friday’s jobs report came in at a whopping 224,000, “shocking” all the “experts” who had all agreed it would only amount to about 165,000. All of this means that, despite the best efforts of Democrats and the fake news media to talk it down, the Trump economy just keeps rolling along, and the recession Democrats have been praying for remains nowhere in sight.

All the Dems in and out of the media got even more depressed Saturday night when the Washington Post and ABC were forced to reveal that the President’s rating in their fake poll had reached an all-time high.

By the end of the week, Democrats and their media toadies were so bereft of anything positive that they were left to panic about the rumor that the President may be considering replacing National Security Advisor John Bolton – a war hawk who these same Dems and media toadies have spent the last 15 years mercilessly vilifying – with someone who would favor getting the U.S. military out of the 18-year war in Afghanistan and Barack Obama’s misadventure in Syria.

Grumps, liars, extremists, and black-clad masked brutes: That is what the Democrat Party has become in 2019.

It’s not a good look, folks.

That is all.

Why Are Leftist Politicians Always “Dehydrated”?

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

When will these leftists learn how to drink water? – BREAKING: We have an epidemic of dehydration breaking out among leaders of the globalist left! Check out this video of German despot Angela Merkel coming down with a case of the shakes at an outdoor ceremony yesterday with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky:

After this disturbing video was taken, Merkel told her willing accomplices in the press that she was suffering from “dehydration” and was just peachy after she went behind closed doors for a bit and drank some water. So that’s the narrative the fake news media has parrotted to the public.

What is it with these evil globalist/leftists and their seeming inability to consume water before they go out and collapse in public? I mean, who could forget this scene of the Fainting Felon…well…fainting and having to literally be thrown into her mobile hospital van by her aides as she fled the scene of a 9/11 ceremony in New York City back during the 2016 campaign?

Or how about this one, of Jerrold Nadler almost passing out cold while seated at a recent outdoor event in New York?

Nadler had to be rushed to a nearby emergency room following this incident.

Both the Coughing Crook and Jabba the Nadler also blamed their public displays of dysfunction on the handy excuse of “dehydration.” It seems to be the stock excuse used by evil leftist politicians whenever the fall ill in public.

The consistency of the excuse/narrative also tells us that it is most likely a line of smelly BS. There was a reason why the Fainting Felon traveled around in that black van during the 2016 campaign, a van that was equipped like your basic EMS vehicle: She was suffering from an array of very obvious ailments, as signaled by her constant fits of uncontrolled coughing in the middle of speeches and the fact that she has to be helped by at least one strong person to climb even a few stairs to a podium.

Jabba the Nadler used to weigh about 600 pounds, as you can see here:

Image result for jerrold nadler fat pictures

He’s lost much of that weight over the years, but is still a short little munchkin who is massively overweight. Interestingly, he seems to still be wearing the same suits, as his pants now come up to his bust line. No telling what sort of actual ailments he is dealing with.

Evil Angela, as can clearly be seen in the video above, is also woefully out of shape, and her grey pallor makes her look like a walking heart attack.

Perhaps this is just the lot in life for those who, like these three, make the projection of outright evil their life’s pursuit. Or perhaps, given the state of modern medical care, all of these individuals most likely consume several prescription medications every day, especially given their ages and poor physical conditions: Merkel is 64, the Fainting Felon is 71, Nadler is 72. Many such modern medications can lead to dehydration, especially when taken with other unrelated medications.

Everything on the political left is a narrative in action, even when its advocates become publicly ill. The stock narrative for that is “dehydration.” Because, hey, when you are a leftist politician there is no reason to tell the truth, since you know the fake news media is just going to parrot your lies.

That is all.

Here’s Why Trump Granted That Interview to the Little Wise Guy

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

Great drinking game for this week’s Democrat debates. – Every time one of the candidates promises a new giveaway program that would cost taxpayers more than $1 trillion, take a shot of tequila. You’ll be dead within an hour.

A friend tells me that death would not be the worst consequence of playing this game. The worst consequence is that you have to watch the Democrat debates in order to play it. Solid point.

Now, onto today’s topic, which is why in the hell did President Trump do an interview with that little Clinton toady George Stephanopoulos? That is the question many Trump supporters have been asking since last Thursday, when ABC released the bit of the interview in which the President basically said that he would listen to some guy from Norway who claimed to have information about his political opponent before deciding whether or not it was something that should be reported to the FBI.

That of course is what every other politician in America would do, and it is also the common sense thing to do. Which is why the fake news media has spent the last four days trying to convince everyone that it is tantamount to, like, treason or something. In the media’s eyes we simply cannot allow common sense to prevail in America – if that happens, no Democrat could ever be elected to public office again.

And we also must never allow an evil Republican to get away with doing exactly what a Democrat would do because, well, if that happens, no Democrat could ever be elected to public office again. See how that works?

But back to why in the hell the President agreed to do this wide-ranging interview. After all, he had to know that Stephanopoulos is just a Democrat activist wearing a fake reporter’s suit, would conduct the interview in classic gotcha fashion because Trump is a Republican – this never happens to Democrats – and would ultimately air a version of their discussions that was carefully edited to try to inflict maximum damage on him and his administration. This stuff is as predictable as Nancy Pelosi forgetting her way to the bathroom. It’s like clockwork.

Well, here’s a thought: Maybe he did this interview to get a couple of messages out to an audience other than the subset of Americans who make up the viewers of Fox News. Think about it.

As part of his exchange with the “little wise guy”, as the President at one point referred to the diminutive Clinton hack, he reminded everyone that the Pantsuit Princess and the DNC combined to pay millions of dollars to have the Steele Dossier compiled during the course of the 2016 campaign. Viewers of Fox News all know this to be the case, but it likely is the first time people who get their “news” from ABC ever heard of it.

So, think about what has taken place since last Thursday, as the entirety of our fake national media establishment have hysterically claimed that simply listening to information provided free of charge by some foreigner is some sort of treasonous act, a false claim that millions of thoughtless citizens have now been parroting to their friends for four solid days. How are these people going to react when Michael Horowitz and William Barr, as a result of their respective investigations, formally report that the Coughing Crook and her minions at the DNC in fact paid $11 million for a bunch of salacious claims made by foreign agents, mainly from Russia?

That’s why Andrew McCabe, of all people, was on CNN Thursday night defending the money-laundering effort that Clinton and the DNC used to hide what they were doing. The skunks and snakes know what’s coming and are trying to spin a positive narrative.

So, there’s that. But that bit of key information is not even the biggest revelation the President rolled out during his interactions with the Little Wise Guy. How about this exchange:

Little Wise Guy: “You clearly believe there was a group of people working against you. Do you think President Obama was behind it?”

Trump: “I would say that he certainly must have known about it because it went very high up in the chain. But you’re going to find that out. I’m not going to make that statement quite yet. But I would say that President Obama had to know about it.” [Emphasis added]

“But you’re going to find that out.” What do you suppose the President meant by that? Do you believe, as the fake media wants you to believe, that Mr. Trump is a dope who just randomly says stuff that has no meaning?

Or do you think the President of the United States has a pretty good idea about what is coming, and is setting the stage for the American public to be able to internalize the coming results of the Horowitz and Barr investigations? Understand that, as far back as November, 2016, Mr. Trump was fully briefed on the plot against him by then-NSA Director Mike Rogers. The day after that briefing, in which he was informed that his offices in Trump Tower were under surveillance, the then-President-elect moved his entire transition team operation to a golfing property he owns in New Jersey.

We should all understand that the media has done everything it possibly can to prevent the public from learning the actual facts of the Obama-era spying and entrapment operation conducted against the Trump team. It is likely that less than 20% of the American people have ever heard about the Clinton/DNC funding of the Steele Dossier, likely that far fewer than that understand how high up in the Obama Administration this operation went.

Assuming the Barr investigation being led by John Durham is real, then a lot of stage-setting must be done before any indictments and prosecutions of high Obama officials begin, since our fake news media has worked so hard to ensure the public is largely uninformed.

So, we should look at the President’s interview with the little Clinton toady as a first step down that difficult road. Expect more inexplicable interviews to be granted to folks like Lester Holt at NBC and Norah O’Donnell at CBS in the weeks to come.

Interesting times.

That is all.

Pelosi Lobs a Bomb as President Trump Honors Fallen D-Day Heroes

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

Hey, there could be a cause and effect relationship here. – The NBA’s year-over- year ratings are down 22% in 2019. Meanwhile, we can no longer refer to the owners of NBA franchises as “owners.”  The reason? Because it makes the largely-black players who these [not] owners have turned into multi-millionaires feel all like ‘slaves’ and stuff. You just cannot make this stuff up.

What a coincidence! I preferred life before Madonna! – Aging, vastly overrated pop star Madonna told an interviewer for New York Times Magazine that “I preferred life before the phone.” Which is interesting since, at age 60, she has never experienced life without phones. The piece itself, linked here, is a tiresome bit of fawning media hackery, so don’t waste your time.

Oh, this’ll really thaw those chilly relations. – Just a couple of weeks after she pretended to chastise President Donald Trump for refusing to negotiate with her and Chuckie Schumer on an infrastructure bill just hours after she had accused him of executing a “cover-up” of something or other, San Fran Nan went even further into the realm of abject dementia on Wednesday. In yet another “impeachment meeting” with her deranged House caucus, the Speaker of the House engaged in a heated discussion with Jabba the Nadler in which she said “I don’t want to see him [Trump] impeached, I want to see him in prison.”

At least, she said that according to a story in the left-wing digital concoction called Politico, which is based on anonymous sources only. In fact, Politico identifies these sources as “multiple Democratic sources familiar with the meeting.” That likely means none of the sources were actually in the meeting, because if they had been, Politico would have identified them as “sources who were present at the meeting,” or something similar. Most likely, assuming these “sources” even exist, they are acquaintances of Jabba, San Fran Nan or Pencil Neck.

But hey, let’s just assume the story is true, mainly because it sounds exactly like something this evil woman would actually say, and like something she and Democrats in general would plant in the fake news media while the President of the United States is in France commemorating the 75th anniversary of the D-Day invasion. Because this is what the Democrats do, and it is who they are. They will resort to literally any tactic to give their media toadies an excuse to avoid reporting anything positive about this President.

Here’s the best passage from the Politico fake/real/who knows? report:

Ashley Etienne, a Pelosi spokeswoman said Pelosi and the chairmen “had a productive meeting about the state of play with the Mueller report. They agreed to keep all options on the table and continue to move forward with an aggressive hearing and legislative strategy, as early as next week, to address the president’s corruption and abuses of power uncovered in the report.”

That is some world class word salad right there, folks. Basically, what it says is “We’re gonna keep having hearings and tossing out subpoenas until we find something that sticks.” Funny, Robert Mueller spent two years and $40 million taxpayer dollars doing the same thing, and we saw how that all worked out for his Democrat masters.

And therein lies the biggest source of Democrat frustration: After all this time, all these investigations, all of this money and all of this rhetoric, there is just nothing there. Like Mueller, they are left holding a big bag of nothing, which has them in a constantly-ratcheting state of panic.

Jabba and Pencil Neck want to just throw reality to wind and move ahead with impeachment for the sake of it, but San Fran Nan wants to maintain some chance of preserving her House majority and remaining Speaker past the 2020 elections. The irony here is that Jabba and Pencil Neck want to trod the same road Pelosi trod with Obamacare in 2010, when she famously advised the American voters that “we need to pass the bill so we can see what’s in it.”

Like Pelosi a decade ago, they want to just open up Pandora’s Box and see if they can get anything real to fall out of it. But San Fran Nan learned something from her Obamacare episode, which is that the American voters do not approve of this sort of abuse of the process in congress, and will direly punish those who engage in it the next time they have the chance to do so at the ballot box.

Speaking of Robert Mueller, our now-retired Witch Hunter-in-Chief, everyone should note that Christopher Steele, who concocted the fake Trump Dossier that became the basis for the Obama FBI’s rampant spying operations against the Trump Campaign in 2016, has agreed to conduct an interview with investigators at the Department of Justice. Given the personal jeopardy such an interview would create for the ex-British spy, we must assume Steele has likely cut some sort of immunity deal in exchange for his testimony.

Speculation is that Steele will be interviewed by DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz, who has been engaged for two years now in his own investigation of the abuses of the FISA process by Obama officials. If that’s the case, that means that Horowitz is still trying to tie things down in his investigation and his report likely won’t be coming anytime in June.

I know the wheels of real justice turn slowly, but this is getting to be damned ridiculous.

Pelosi’s Choice

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

As of today, in the wake of Robert Mueller’s exit from the sedition stage, the Democrat Party is left with two choices: They can either do what the hotheads in their demented voter base and congressional caucus want, and move down the fool’s gold-paved road to impeachment, or they can have a shot at maintaining their majority in the House of Representatives in the 2020 elections.

They can’t have both.

See, San Fran Nan is not quite as dumb as she looks (and granted, she looks awfully dumb most of the time). The doddering, stammering old hack has political power now, and she understands that, in today’s Washington, DC, that is the difference between raking in the big bucks and being on the outside watching the money train leave the station. She doesn’t want to go back to being a spectator after just two years.

The problem she has is that her base of power is a very shaky one. She has a fairly sizable majority of 235D-197R (three seats are currently vacant), but well over 30 of those D seats are held by Democrats who managed to win in marginal Republican districts in 2018. To make matters even more shaky, most of those Democrats are freshmen who have little real influence with and loyalty from their constituents.

It has been reported that the only real reason why Pelosi has not turned to Jabba the Nadler and told him to go ahead with impeachment hearings is not because she knows such an effort would never be able to succeed in the GOP-majority senate, but because House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer and the rest of her leadership team keep telling her she does not even have the votes to win in her own House caucus. See, almost all of those freshmen representing GOP districts want to get re-elected in 2020, and they know that as soon as they call for the impeachment of a sitting President for no real reason other than Trump Derangement Syndrome, they can just fold up their tent and go back to living a real life in the real world, and who wants to do that?

So, what is a shaky old hack to do? How do you keep the restless natives from revolting while still holding onto some chance at maintaining your power base in an election that lies 17 long months away?

Well, you do what she’s been doing, which is to keep throwing out the occasional impeachment red meat that you know will make the headlines at the Drudge Report to your members while stopping just short of actually heading down that doomed-to-fail road. San Fran Nan has resorted to that tactic at pretty much every public speaking event she’s held in the past couple of months, and she did it again yesterday at some event or another – who the hell knows what it was? CNN – whose report was linked by the Drudge Report –  naturally doesn’t say.

Regardless of CNN’s standard lousy reporting, Pelosi first noted that only about 15% of her caucus are “outspoken on impeachment” right now, but then tossed out the red meat by continuing with “nothing is off the table.” But CNN’s fake reporter Jim Acosta quoted an un-named Democrat (because of course he or she wasn’t named) as saying that Pelosi’s natives “are growing more restless.”  Man, is that some perfect CNN fake reporting, or what?

Pelosi then made the funniest statement of all, when she promised that “The Congress will continue to investigate and legislate to protect our elections and secure our democracy.” First of all, the national Democrat Party at this point could not care less about doing anything to “secure our democracy.” Literally every action that party has taken for many years now has been designed to undermine our democratic Republic and our personal liberties, and that is not going to change.

And the congress will certainly continue to investigate, because that is the House Democrats’ sole agenda. But legislate? Please. Stop it. Your own voters don’t even believe that anymore.

So there’s Pelosi’s Choice. (Wasn’t that a movie once?) At this point, you almost have to wonder what it is that drives her to keep going. She’s 79 years old, an age when most ordinary Americans strive to be blissfully retired and taking it easy.

But San Fran Nan is like so many members of congress in both parties: They just seem to want to keep going and going, lording their power over the rest of us until life leaves them no choice.

Why, it’s as if power itself is a narcotic (it is) and no one in Washington appears more regularly loony from that narcotic’s effects than Nancy Pelosi.

That is all.

Beto O’Rourke Issues the Most Authentic Democrat Apology Ever

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

Apology accepted, you giant a**hole! – Desperate times call for desperate measures, as they say, and no Democrat candidates are more desperate these days than Eric “Otter” Swalwell and Irish Bob “Beto” O’Rourke. This week, both campaigns decided it would be best for their failing candidates to apologize for being exactly who they are.

So, Swalwell went out on Monday and, in on of the most stilted, palpably insincere moments of 2019, made a video in which he apologized to a woman for being a white man, saying “I may be another white guy, but I know there are gaps in my knowledge or in my experience and I know when to pass the mic.”

Ummmm, no, dude, the very existence of this video clearly demonstrates you haven’t the slightest clue about when to do that.

When questioned by Fox News’s Martha MaCallum about Swalwell’s gesture, Trey Gowdy nailed it, saying “Well, Eric’s clearly riding a wave. I think he’s all the way up to zero in the polling.”  Ooof.

Not to be outdone by one of the shrinking handful of contenders he still leads in the polling, Irish Bob O’Rourke issued a video of his own on Tuesday. In this one, he apologizes to his 2018 senate campaign staff for being “a giant asshole.” Which, of course, is what everyone was thinking about him but afraid to say in polite company. But we aren’t in polite company here at Today’s Campaign Update, so we just plow right ahead and say it.

Hey, this is a really promising trend we have going on here for the Democrats. Maybe the rest of the field will take this opportunity issue some heartfelt apologies of their own for their past misdeeds that we are all totally aware of.  Wouldn’t that be fun?

Here are some examples of the apology opportunities that lie out there in Democrat land:

  • Joe Biden could apologize for being a serial woman-and-child groper;
  • Kamala Harris could apologize for being a floozy who slept her way to the Senate;
  • Fauxcahontas could apologize for being, well, Fauxcahontas;
  • The Commie could apologize for being an America-hating Marxist;
  • Pete Buttigieg could apologize for being just so darn cute;
  • Amy Klobuchar could apologize for being a heinously-abusive boss;
  • Cory Booker could apologize to Spartacus;
  • Kirstin Gillibrand could apologize for ever announcing her candidacy in the first place;
  • John Hickenlooper could apologize for having been a pretty good governor, thus ending any hope that he might actually succeed in Democrat presidential politics;
  • Jay Inslee, a horrible governor, could apologize in advance to all those future dead Washingtonians whose bodies will be mixed with leaves and manure to become compost;
  • Bill DeBlasio could apologize for being the worst mayor in a city whose history is filled with an endless series of awful mayors, interrupted only by 8 years of Rudy Giuliani;
  • Tulsi Gabbard could apologize to the other contenders for being the only actually interesting candidate in the entire field;
  • Marianne Williamson could apologize for being someone… I don’t even know who she is;
  • Seth Moulton could apologize to Fox News viewers for denying their ability to cringe and laugh out loud at every opinion uttered on-air by Marie Harf;
  • Julian Castro could apologize for being too authentically Hispanic to ever hope to attract the votes of Democrat voters who just love to be deceived.

This could go on almost endlessly, given the collection of miscreants, hacks and life-long frauds that are leading the race right now.

But of course, it won’t. Being a leftist asshole means never really having say you’re sorry, unless you think there’s some political advantage to doing it. Pretty sure that was in a movie once.

That is all.

New Democrat Strategy: Hidin’ Biden

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

Hey, why does that strategy sound so familiar?– The Washington Post carried a piece on Sunday titled “Biden’s Campaign is one of Limited Exposure.” Gosh, that sure sounds like something we’ve heard from a leading Democrat candidate before, doesn’t it?

Yeah, sure does. To see why, all we must do is hark back to 2015, when the Pantsuit Princess’s advisors decided that the best thing for her to do was to lay low and stay out of the public eye as much as possible. Why would that be the case, you might wonder? Well, it was because the Fainting Felon’s team recognized that they had on their hands an extraordinarily unlikable candidate, a candidate whose polling numbers fell in direct correlation with the amount of public exposure she received. Plus, they had a candidate with a variety of physical infirmities – like her chronic hacking cough and the fact that she was incapable of climbing a few steps up to a stage without assistance – that had to be carefully hidden from the public eye.

Thus, the Coughing Crook’s campaign was one of strategic hiding, a campaign designed to attract as little direct attention onto the candidate herself as possible. While Donald Trump and 15 other GOP contenders were duking it out on national TV every day, the Grasping Grifter was issuing carefully-scripted tweets, speaking maybe twice a week at the standard half-filled high school gymnasium, and otherwise avoiding any live contact with anyone who might ask an inconvenient question of her. That strategy continued right on through Election Day 2016, and we all saw how that turned out for the Democrats.

Fast forward four years, and we now see Creepy Uncle Joe employing the exact same strategy. While 24 other Democrat candidates are jockeying for position in the daily pecking order, desperately seeking all the free media attention they can get, the guy who has had more facial work than Cher and whose really bad hair plug job all fell out late in the 20th century has suddenly gone quiet following his much-heralded two week campaign kickoff a month ago.

It isn’t hard to see why. As we discussed last week, Biden very predictably jumped out to a big lead in the various polls during the 10 days following his formal campaign announcement, and then saw that lead quickly start to disintegrate in direct correlation with the amount of actual media attention he received.

See, Democrat voters love the idea of Joe Biden, but it was starting to become too obvious that they aren’t all that fond of waking up to the reality of Joe Biden. The idea of Biden is the thought that here’s the Washington, DC veteran of more than 40 years, an energetic guy who has seen and done it all, a guy who spent 8 years as VP to Barack Hussein Obama his own self, a guy who would ride in on his unicorn and vanquish the Evil Orange Man, thus taking our nation back to the glory days of 1% economic growth and the EPA regulating our swimming pools.

But the reality of Joe Biden is something else entirely. The reality of Biden is a guy who can’t keep his hands off of women and children at public events, a guy who will be approaching octogenarian status by the time January 20, 2021 rolls around, a worn out old DC hack who can’t attract a crowd of more than a few hundred people to an event in Downtown Philly, a guy with a real record as long as his creepy fingers that is chock-full of statements and positions that offend pretty much every one of the aggrieved special interests that constitute the Democrat Party’s fragile voter coalition, and a guy who can’t even speak in complete, coherent sentences when not reading from a script.

This is a man who has to be carefully controlled and handled, obviously.

Biden’s massive team of handlers understand that the key to Joe Biden becoming president is to ensure that voters go to the polls to elect the idea of Joe Biden, because there is no way on God’s green earth – or I guess they would say Gaia’s green earth – that the American people are ever going to elect the reality of Joe Biden.

These advisors must look at the long series of debates and a long and arduous nominating run laid out before them as a field of land mines, a withering and daunting process that could see their candidate’s clownish mouth produce utter disaster with every successive step. So, yes, they are keeping their accident-waiting-to-happen candidate out of the public eye as much as possible right now. Best to go into that debate season next month with a lead in the polls and see how long they can hang onto it.

Thus, the Democrats go from Hiding Hillary to Hidin’ Biden.

Maybe someday the Party that saddled us with Woodrow Wilson and Jimmy Carter and Bill Clinton and Barack Obama his own self will nominate a candidate it can actually be proud of. Wouldn’t that be a wonderful thing?

That is all.

The Week in Review: Panic in the Deep State as Barr Steams Ahead

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

No more Twitter Week in Review, I’m afraid. For whatever reason, WordPress doesn’t seem to be able to handle that many photos in a single post anymore. Weird. So until I figure that bit of technical nonsense out, we’ll have to review the week the old-fashioned way, with mostly words. Man, it’s like we’re back in the 20th century here.

So, here is your Week in Review, retro-style:

The week began with fake Republican Justin Amash from Michigan, joining his fellow Michigander Rashida Tlaib in calling for President Trump’s impeachment. Like Tlaib, Amash has no clue what the exact grounds for impeachment would be, but he did know his business interests in China were suffering from the President’s trade policies, and by golly, that was enough for him. In response to Amash’s craven act, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy encouraged Amash to just go ahead and switch parties. Good advice.

While 25 despicable candidates for the Democrat nomination were out around the country giving students false hopes that their massive college loans would be forgiven if only they voted for them – that isn’t gonna happen unless we want to crash the national banking system – Austin billionaire investor Robert F. Smith took matters into his own hands. In the midst of his commencement address at Morehouse College, Smith informed the graduating class that he would personally be paying off their loans, an incredibly generous gesture that will cost him an estimated $57 million.

I would say hey, maybe Smith should run for the Democrat nomination, but 1) I don’t know the man’s politics, and 2) no one that intelligent could possibly attract the votes of the deranged Democrat voter base.

By Monday, it had become apparent that Irish Bob O’Rourke’s “re-boot” of his moribund campaign had already run aground, and polls issued throughout the week showed his numbers had dropped from a fairly consistent 5-6% support a few weeks ago down to a consistent 2-3% now. Apparently, even his wife and dog are now planning to vote for Mayor Pete instead.  Oof.

Hey, remember Eric Swalwell, and how he was also running for the Democrat nomination? Given that he consistently hits 0% in the polls, not many people do. But he is running, though no one is really sure why. On Monday the Washington Free Beacon did the Washington Post’s job, reporting that the 38 year-old California nitwit has failed to pay down his own student loans, which total up to as much as $100,000. Hey, maybe that’s why he’s running – so he can forgive himself. It makes more sense than anything else.

Speaking of Democrats mysteriously in the race, ex-Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper told an interviewer this week that “Withdrawing the U.S. from global engagement makes us less safe.” The only trouble is, no one is doing that. So he wins this week’s non sequitur award.

It was the week that the deep state rats really started scurrying for cover, with Usual Suspects like James Comey, John Brennan, James Clapper and Loretta Lynch very publicly arguing with and pointing fingers at each other in a desperate attempt to avoid becoming the subjects of grand jury subpoenas and indictments. Cartoonist A.F. Branco captured it all perfectly here:

When President Trump re-tweeted that hilariously perfect cartoon, both Brennan and Comey got a very public case of the vapors, which they of course took to their Twitter feeds. Doesn’t everybody?

By Tuesday, the cacophony coming from House Democrats demanding impeachment had reached high enough decibel levels that even doddering old Nancy Pelosi could hear it, so she called a special ‘impeachment meeting’ with all of them on Wednesday morning. Emerging from that meeting, she accused President Trump of executing a “cover-up”, and then immediately traveled to the White House for a long-scheduled meeting with the President and Chuck Schumer on infrastructure. Trump then abruptly cancelled that meeting due to Pelosi’s having just accused him of felonious behavior, starting a public pissing contest between the two that lasted the rest of the week.

Our fake news media blamed Trump for everything, because of course they did.

Another week passed without Robert Mueller or anyone else appearing to testify before Jaba The Nadler’s House Kangaroo Court Committee, formerly known as the Judiciary Committee. Upon learning of Mueller’s latest refusal to show, CNN reporter Manu Raj took to Twitter – because of course he did – to inform his half-dozen loyal readers that “Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s team has expressed reticence to him testifying publicly in front of the House Judiciary Committee, according to sources familiar with the matter. His team has expressed that he does not want to appear political.”

Everyone in Washington and out here in Flyover Country was left to wonder exactly who Robert Mueller’s “team” consists of, given that Mueller is now nothing more than an employee at the Department of Justice. Everyone was also left to wonder when exactly it was that Mueller – who conducted a 20-month Witch Hunt and then, failing to find a crime of any kind, issued a 424 page report specifically designed to damage a sitting POTUS politically – suddenly became concerned about appearing to be political. No answers were forthcoming, although whenever they do come, we can be sure they will be posted on Twitter.

Rock singer David Lee Roth is getting his own Las Vegas residency, because the nation simply cannot get enough of a 70 year-old guy singing “Hot for Teacher.”

Researchers at the University of Iceland violated the ClimateScam narrative this week by noting that that glaciers in both Iceland and Greenland had expanded dramatically over the last 12 months and would continue to expand in coming years. They will no doubt soon be looking for other employment, because the narrative must be honored in today’s academic world.

The Washington Examiner did the Washington Post’s job and discovered this week that Mayor Pete’s dad was a dedicated Marxist who regularly read the Communist Manifesto to his son over the dinner table. Just your normal, every day Democrat politician’s family, right? Right.

Washington state Governor Jay Inslee – who is also running for the 2020 Democrat nomination, because of course he is – signed a bill making it legal to compost human bodies in that state. Have you figured out yet that the Democrat Party is a death cult? Because I have.

In the best talking head clip of the week, Louisiana Senator John Kennedy goes off on John Brennan and Iran:

It isn’t getting anything else productive done, but the U.S. Senate this week managed to confirm the 41st circuit court nominee by President Trump, far and away a record for any president at this point in his first term.

The Creepy Porn Lawyer received even more indictments this week, this time for bilking his porn star client out of $300,000. He now faces up to 410 years in the federal pen. See? There is still justice in America.

Mayor Pete got his Fox News townhall Monday evening, complete with an audience stacked with his supporters and softball questions from a fawning Chris Wallace. Fox’s ratings soared.

Irish Bob O’Rourke got himself a townhall Tuesday night on CNN, causing CNN’s ratings to tank another 30%. O’Rourke then said he sure would like to get him one of those Fox News deals with Chris Wallace, prompting President Trump to issue a tweet asking what in the hell is going on at Fox News?  Good question.

The big bomb of the week dropped on Thursday, as President Trump sent a memo over to William Barr authorizing the AG to begin the process of declassifying documents related to the Obama Administration’s efforts to spy on the Trump campaign, fix the 2016 elections for the Pantsuit Princess, execute a coup on a sitting U.S. president and basically destroy our republic. When asked by one dim bulb reporter what exactly he would be declassifying, the President responded “Everything. We’re declassifying everything.”

Deep State panic ensued.

Bug-eyed Adam Schiff was so panicked that he called the President’s effort towards full transparency in government a “cover-up” and “un-American.” I’m old enough to remember when cover-ups consisted of efforts to hide crucial information from the public. Times change, I suppose.

British Prime Minister Theresa May resigned a few hours after the President sent that memo to William Barr. Even though her intelligence agencies were intimately involved in the effort to construct the fake Steele Dossier and frame members of the Trump campaign throughout 2016, and that May has literally begged Trump not to declassify certain documents, we are to believe the confluence of these events is strictly coincidental. Because, narrative or something.

On Friday, Jabba The Nadler seemed to almost pass out at a press conference with New York Mayor Bill DeBlasio – another guy who is mysteriously running for the Democrat nomination. Trying to destroy a nation of 330 million people is stressful work.

Also on Friday, old Clinton hack Naomi Wolf was humiliated on live radio in London when the host informed her that the entire basis for the book she is promoting is based on her lack of understanding of a British legal term. Her publisher announced on Saturday that it was pulling the book for “re-editing.” Ms. Wolf is one of the rarest of rare Democrats in that she is not running for the party’s nomination in 2020.

Finally, the week ended with MSNBC nitwit host Nicolle Wallace asking Irish Bob O’Rourke the question that is on every fake journalist’s mind: ““Play media critic: What can we do better” to cover his campaign. An obviously flustered O’Rourke had no answer, saying that “it is what it is.”

Why yes, it certainly is.

That is all.

The Democrat/Media Axis of Propaganda is Rotting our Society

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

Media blackout on anything positive continues. – On his way to Japan Friday, President Donald Trump (I still never tire of typing those three glorious words) stopped in Alaska to visit with U.S. troops there, an appropriate gesture given that honoring America’s military and its veterans is the entire purpose of the Memorial Day holiday.

The troops cheered and, unlike their reaction whenever Barack Hussein Obama his own self would make such a visit, were obviously excited and thrilled to be in the presence of the President. Naturally, I had to go to the semi-conservative Washington Examiner’s website to find any news coverage of the visit. Undeterred as always, the President gave us his own coverage via his Twitter account, including a clip of the gathering:

Our national news media remains America’s worst historic disgrace. This truth of modern society has never been demonstrated more starkly than in the current behavior by the Democrat members in the U.S. House of Representatives, by Obama appointees in the courts, and our fake news media’s enabling of that behavior.

In fact, what we have seen since January from doddering, gibberish-spewing San Fran Nan and her evil minions is a clear illustration of the major weakness of the U.S. Constitution.

See, the men who drafted that document, which is quite possibly the most impressive piece of genius ever conceived by the human mind, were all men of good intent, men who loved America and the very idea of the creation and maintenance of a constitutional Republican form of government. And they were being covered every day by a press – what they referred to as the Fourth Estate and considered to be a crucial element to any free society – that, though it had major faults and biases, was dedicated to holding those in power accountable to the people.

The fundamental weakness of the document they created back during May-September of 1787 is that it assumes that future generations of Americans would continue to send people of good intent, people who love their country and want it to prosper in the world, to represent them in the U.S. Congress. The Constitution also presumes that the Fourth Estate would continue to pursue its societal duty of serving as the people’s watchdog, dedicated to holding all those in power accountable to the public.

These two elements are absolutely key to the healthy maintenance of the separation of powers between our three branches of government – without them, power-mad zealots would be able to run amok as they abuse and distort the system, and deny one or both of the other branches of government the ability to perform their necessary and envisioned duties.

We have seen such abusive behavior from Obama appointees in the federal courts since January, 2017. An array of these seditious people have made a practice of issuing a seemingly-endless series of lawless decisions and national injunctions, all designed to deny the Trump Administration the ability to govern the nation. This is all by design, a part of the “Lawfare” strategy developed by Obama and his fellow America-haters specifically in anticipation of the election of the next Republican president. It is un-American, it is seditious, it is lawless, and it is frankly evil. Sadly, our nation’s corrupt, fake media establishment ignores the serial abuses of these judges and refuses to inform the vast majority of citizens about the truth of this intentional strategic initiative.

Since January of this year, we have seen the committees in the Democrat-controlled House of Representatives weaponize the legislative branch of our government in a second effort to deny a duly-elected President of the United States the ability to govern the nation. This strategy is designed to keep the executive branch so preoccupied with a vast array of baseless investigations that again, it is unable to properly carry out its duties and implement the policies it was elected to affect.

Again, our fake national news media is mute on the reality of all of this, intentionally refusing to inform its viewers and readers of the seditious mendacity being practiced daily by the Democrats.

It is vitally important that those of us who are “woke” to all of this understand what has really happened, that we as a nation have a major political party that no longer elects people of good intent who love our country and want it to prosper in the world. The Democrat Party simply no longer has any priority other than the acquisition and maintenance of political power for its own sake.

If we had anything resembling a media establishment dedicated to holding those in power accountable to the people, the Democrat Party could not possibly ever win another election of any kind with its current lawless philosophy. But we must understand and accept that our society has also lost this crucial element so necessary to its survival as a free nation. That loss may be irretrievable, given the sorry state of our system of higher education and our nation’s journalism schools.

All of this is why the road upon which Attorney General William Barr has embarked is so vitally important. Because the Obama Administration organized an effort to fix the 2016 presidential election in favor of its party’s candidate, and then, having failed that, extended that effort into an outright coup attempt. This is now crystal clear to any informed, thoughtful person of good intent in our society.

If there is no punishment, no consequences for having committed such a high crime, a literal atrocity against the very foundations of our society, then what incentive would San Fran Nan and Chuck Schumer and the rest of the despicable leadership of the Democrat Party ever have to modify their behavior?

There must. be. consequences.

That is all.
