Today’s Campaign Update
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)
This is not working out the way the Democrat/Media Axis of Propaganda wanted. Not at all. – The new NBC/Wall Street Journal poll released Sunday pegs President Trump’s job approval rating at 45%. Why is that significant? Because it is the highest approval level this particular fake media outlet poll has registered for Mr. Trump since he took office, and it comes after a week of the most focused, intense hit job led by the fake news media against any president in U.S. history. Just one more reason why the Democrats stopped with their “Trump committed treason!!!!!” nonsense starting on Friday and went back to talking about hookers and playmates.
Speaking of things that aren’t polling well for the Democrats, how about that whole socialism thing, huh? – An ever-dwindling group of “centrist” Democrats who call themselves the Third Way held their annual meeting in Columbus, OH, on Thursday and Friday to try to come up with some sort of coherent agenda for the 2018 midterm elections. Even though they all agreed that their party’s ongoing lurch to the far, far, far left is a bad thing, they very predictably failed in their quest. You don’t have to believe me – just read these quotes from the Miami Herald’s coverage of the event:
“Let’s be clear,” Cowan said. “80s supply-sidism, 90s centrism and 60s socialism will not cut it for the era we’re in. We need something new and different.”
Many of those in attendance were careful not to directly criticize Ocasio-Cortez, saying they welcomed the new energy she was bringing into the party. But they also made clear that they thought her style of politics would be a difficult sell outside of her New York City congressional district, where the party must try to win over more conservative voters.
“A small but vocal subgroup that is unhinged from evidence will be wrong in the long run, regardless of how loud they are,” said Iowa state Sen. Jeff Danielson, in an interview.
But he’s not sure other members of his party will listen to his advice.
“We don’t know what we want,” he said. “We haven’t found our sea legs as a party.”
You don’t say…
Ok, so Good Trey Gowdy got out of bed on Sunday morning, and awesomeness ensued. – One never knows what to expect out of South Carolina Congressman Trey Gowdy. On any given day he appears to alternate between a “Good” version of himself who is a blunt, plain-spoken bulldog of a truth-seeker, and a “Bad” version of himself who is an almost insufferable apologist for even the worst actors at the FBI and DOJ, making many wonder if he is actually seeking a job over there at DOJ when he leaves his congressional seat at the end of the year. Which honestly wouldn’t be a bad thing if only Good Trey Gowdy showed up for work every day.
On Sunday, Good Trey Gowdy got out of bed, went on Fox News Sunday, and had this to say:
“I have not seen one scintilla of evidence that this president colluded, conspired, collaborated, with Russia. And neither has anyone else, or you can rest assured, Adam Schiff would have leaked it,” Gowdy said. “That is why they have moved on from collusion on to obstruction of justice, which is now their current preoccupation.”
Even in today’s toxic, hyper-partisan atmosphere in the halls of congress, it is a rare thing indeed to see one congressman call out another for what is basically the commission of a crime on national television. Somewhere, Cong. Schiff’s bugeyes were bugging out even more than usual when he saw that quote. The sad thing is that everyone knows that what Gowdy said is the unvarnished truth, and that Schiff will get away with what he’s already done and just keep on leaking with impunity because he’s a member of congress.
But Gowdy wasn’t done yet, oh no. Later in the same interview, he also managed to take shots at the Commie and Dianne Feinstein:
“BAIER: So, Trump supporters look at that, former CIA Director John Brennan, former FBI Director James Comey, what he said, what they’ve said. And they say they understand why the president feels a little inquisitive about where things are going.
GOWDY: Yes, Bret, you don’t even have to be a Trump supporter to be mindful of the fact that John Brennan thinks he’s guilty of a crime for which he can be hanged, that John Brennan thinks he should be in the dustbin of history, that Jim Comey thinks impeachment is too good of a remedy and Jim Comey now thinks that everyone should vote Democrat so Bernie Sanders will be the head of the budget committee and Dianne Feinstein will be the head of intel.
I mean, these are the people that were supposed to be dispassionately, objectively investigating a fact pattern and they have much animus against Donald Trump as anything I have seen in my eight years in politics.”
Good stuff. Too bad Good Trey Gowdy doesn’t get out of bed every morning. If he did, we’d be so much further along in this process of bringing the bad actors to justice.
Still, we should enjoy Good Trey Gowdy whenever he does show up, because he’s right on point, and entertaining as hell.
Just another day in why can’t Good Trey Gowdy show up every day America.
That is all.
