The GOP Surrender Caucus Holds The Fate of the Mid-terms in its Hands

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Man, nobody could’ve seen this one coming. Oh, wait… – If it sometimes seems to you that literally nothing the “Climate Change” scammers claim ever turns out to be true, that just means you are a keen observer of actual outcomes.

For our latest example, I bring you these findings from a new study conducted by researchers at…wait for it…HARVARD!:

“In two papers — published today in the journals Environmental Research Letters and Joule — Harvard University researchers find that the transition to wind or solar power in the U.S. would require five to 20 times more land than previously thought, and, if such large-scale wind farms were built, would warm average surface temperatures over the continental U.S. by 0.24 degrees Celsius.”

Here’s another problem with wind power that states like Texas and Kansas, that are home to an array of huge wind farms that are now moving into the final years of their useful lives, are about to face:  None of these states have regulations on their books governing the retirement, dismantling and disposal of those gigantic windmills.  That’s right – unless the landowners who leased their lands had the foresight to place such requirements in their lease agreements, these 200 to 700 ft. tall eyesores could simply be left standing to rot away if the wind companies don’t want to bear the expense of removing them.

The more you know about this stuff, the less attractive it becomes, which of course is why your fake news media has desperately avoided telling you about these inconvenient truths.

Just a few weeks ago, they all said this was tantamount to treason. – Everyone does realize that the Republicans have now snookered the Democrats into demonizing the FBI, right?  The ability of these people to literally take a 180 degree turn in their rhetoric without giving it a second thought is truly breathtaking.  And hilarious.  And demented.

And now, a word from our Why You Should Be Following @GDBlackmon on Twitter sponsors:

 

You keep using that term.  I don’t think you know what it means. – One of the big news stories that the fake news media studiously ignored on Thursday was the fact that no fewer than 8 people who were in college in the Maryland area during the 1980s have written letters to inform the Senate that “The Devil’s Triangle” reference in Judge Brett Kavanaugh does indeed refer to a drinking game similar to the game of “quarters.”

Yes, friends, it turns out that the entire Democrat Senate caucus – indeed, the entirety of the depraved American Left – got duped by a fake definition of the term that someone had placed in the online “American Urban Dictionary” just days before Christine Ford testified before the Senate Judiciary Committee last week.  Remember that this entire controversy was generated by a brief reference in Judge Kavanaugh’s high school yearbook, and that no fewer than three Democrat committee members – including Feinstein and Leahy – spent their time questioning Kavanaugh on it during the hearing on national freakin’ television.

My goodness.  This is the greatest troll in the history of trolls.

Oh, hey, good of you to give us a head’s up, Steve! – This little bit of news came through at about 7:00 ET last night:

But don’t panic – a few hours after the news broke, Sen. Daines issued a statement in which he says he will be around to vote on Saturday no matter what, which presumably means his poor daughter will have to delay her nuptuals until he can fly back to Montana late in the day on Saturday.

Being the father of a married daughter myself, I admire Sen. Daines for his determination to walk his own daughter down the aisle – it’s one of the biggest moments in any Dad’s life.  But you can imagine the panic among the GOP leadership in the Senate when they learned of Daines’s potential conflict, since they only have a one-vote margin on this confirmation, and the party’s Surrender Caucus of Jeff Flake, Susan Collins and Lisa Murkowski all remain silent as of this writing on how they plan to vote.

While these fake Republicans dither, their ideological equals on the Democrat side of the aisle are deciding en masse to risk their re-elections by opposing the nomination.  North Dakota’s Heidi Heitcamp woke up Thursday morning to the reality that she’s 12 points down in the latest poll, and just gave up.  Indiana’s Joe Donnelly and Missouri’s Claire McCaskill, both locked in nip and tuck races in their states, had announced their opposition earlier in the week.  Those three seats will all most likely end up becoming GOP gains in November as a result of those decisions.

That’s if – and it remains a big “if” this morning – these three Republican squishes do the right thing and vote to confirm Kavanaugh.  If any two of them do the wrong thing and vote against, then all bets are off.  A win on this nomination will energize the GOP voter base even more than it already has been, but a loss will certainly cause many otherwise-Republican voters to toss up their hands, say “screw ’em” and just stay home.

These next two days are, as President Donald Trump would say, Yuuuuuuuuuge.

That is all.

Trump Disrupts Democrat War on U.S. Workers With New NAFTA Deal

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Hey, remember when all the “experts” were telling you that President Donald Trump could not possibly successfully renegotiate the 25 year-old NAFTA deal? – Yeah, they were wrong about that, too.

The new name’s a little clumsy, but the deal is done, and the deal is much, much better for America’s workers, especially those in blue collar, farming and union jobs.  Hey, remember when those were the kind of jobs the Democrat Party used to at least pretend to care about?  Yeah, good times…

Today, as you absorb the no-doubt slanted news about this new trade agreement, remember that the very same “experts” who told you this could not be done are also telling you that Donald Trump will never, never, never, ever be able to really get the Crazy Little Fat Guy in North Korea to de-nuclearize the Korean Peninsula.  Do not be surprised when the successful completion of that effort is a major plank in Trump’s re-election campaign in 2020.

The Teenage Drama Queen gets a by-line in the New York Times, and boy is it a hoot. – Former FBI Director and current teenage drama queen James Comey penned an op/ed for the sad old New York Times on Sunday, because of course he did.  The most corrupt director the agency has ever had slammed the mounting of this week-long FBI investigation into all the absurd accusations directed at Judge Brett Kavanaugh, not be cause the charges are so obviously false, not because the Judge has already been the subject of 6 previous in-depth, open-ended FBI background checks, but because…wait for it…you can’t “put a shot clock” on an FBI investigation.

In other words, the very same corrupt, pathological liar who twice put a strict shot clock on the agency’s sham “investigation” into Hillary Clinton’s illegal email server has of course joined the Democrat chorus against the week-long time frame for this investigation that the Democrats agreed to just 3 days ago.  There are perfectly descriptive words for James Comey, but I just can’t use them here.

Sunday’s @GDBlackmon Twitter Deep Thought…

Hey, you know it’s true.

Meanwhile, in the Texas Senate Race… – Last Thursday, when it looked like the Senate would be held into session over the weekend to deal with the Kavanaugh nomination, Ted Cruz informed Irish Bob O’Rourke that he would not be able to make it to Houston for their scheduled debate early Sunday evening.  On Saturday morning, Cruz notified Irish Bob that he could in fact make it to Houston thanks to the idiotic machinations of Arizona Senator Jeff Flake, but Irish Bob declined, saying he now had made other “plans.”

So, what was Irish Bob doing at the very time the debate was supposed to be taking place?  Why, he was engaged in an hour-long Facebook Live session from his kitchen.

Obviously, Irish Bob still hasn’t figured out how he’s going to backtrack from his false denial of leaving the scene of the wreck he caused while driving drunk back in the 1990s.  Until he does, we probably won’t be seeing any more debates between the two Texas senate candidates.

Back to the Kavanaugh nomination process one more time. – So, the Democrat playbook for this week is now clear…

  • Agree to a limited FBI investigation to last no more than one week;
  • Spend the weekend wailing that the investigation is tooooooooooo liiiiiiiiimmmmittttteeeeeddddd!!!;
  • Find male “acquaintances” of Judge Kavanaugh from high school and college to tell Democrat media activists that the Judge, when a teenager, was a sloppy drunk;
  • Pretend it’s a really big deal that the FBI is questioning the second, obviously lying, female accuser;
  • Have the Dragon Lady from Hawaii all over TV claiming that the investigation is “falling apart” before it even gets started in earnest;
  • And then, late in the week – probably Wednesday night or sometime Thursday – have another female accuser crawl out of the woodwork with more false allegations; or
  • Maybe even have some leftwing activist parent of one of the kids Kavanaugh has coached in basketball over the years appear on CNN or MSNBC and accuse him of being a pedophile.

Or maybe both new accusations will come.  Remember that the Democrats’ favorite Saul Alinskly tactic is “projection,” i.e., accusing the Republicans of the exact behaviors of which they themselves are guilty.  Thus, accusations of pedophilia are pretty much inevitable, and indeed the leftists at USA Today already ran an op/ed implying that of Kavanaugh as an initial shot across the bow.

These people are demented, depraved and despicable, and nothing is beneath them.  To them, this is a war, literally.  It is a war not just on Judge Kavanaugh, not just on President Trump, not just on Republicans, but on all Americans who are not part of one of their aggrieved classes.  Frankly, it has even become a war on many of them – witness the bullying and booing of Kanye West that took place during his appearance on Saturday Night Live this past weekend.

This is not your father’s Democrat Party.  There are no moderates in that party anymore, no Scoop Jackson Democrats or even Lloyd Benson Democrats.  It is only possible to see their true nature with clear eyes when you accept the reality that there simply are no more decent people in the national Democrat Party today.  Not one.

These people are all about one thing:  The re-acquisition of power.  They will do literally anything to achieve that goal.  So buckle up, and don’t be surprised by the depravity to come this week.

That is all.

Our Fake News Media – The Willing Enablers of Democrat Depravity

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Another Trump tour de force. – One day after giving possibly the greatest pro-America speech ever delivered by any U.S. representative at the United Nations General Assembly, President Donald Trump (I still never tire of typing those three words) conducted one of the most amazing, wide-ranging press conferences ever conducted by a president in an international setting.  It was filled with humor, biting commentary on current events, amazing new nuggets of information (such as the President’s preference that oily Rod Rosenstein stay on the job at least for now) and even another humiliation of CNN’s pathetic, preening peacock Jim Acosta.

Some of the best highlights of the press conference can be found here.  You can no doubt watch it in its entirety at any of a dozen places – just Google it.

The humorless fake news media naturally blasted and intentionally mis-reported the presser, just as they had blasted and mis-reported the President’s speech.  Which is what the fake news media does in this country.

The takeaway, though, is this:  President Trump should be doing these press conferences far more often.  He is far and away his own most effective spokesman, and he needs to stop allowing his communications advisors to bottle him up.  He should hold a presser just like he did yesterday every Friday afternoon and let it dominate the news cycle for every weekend.  It is maddening that he continues to take such bad communications advice from his team.

The Creepy Porn Lawyer takes things a step too far. – Here’s what I wrote on my Facebook page yesterday, shortly after the Creepy Porn Lawyer had made his latest outrageous effort to attract attention by exploiting another woman:

I gotta tell ya, I’m beginning to think the Creepy Porn Lawyer is actually a Trump plant.

I think this latest stunt is going to completely backfire on the Democrats. I think it is so outrageously unbelievable that it is going to infuriate millions of ordinary Americans who might have to this point been on the fence about the nomination.

Think about it: Brett Kavanaugh has been subjected to SIX FBI BACKGROUND CHECKS. These things are like full-fledged anal examinations in which every aspect of your life is looked at, all the way back to your birth. Every friend and acquaintance you have ever had is contacted by the FEDERAL BUREAU OF INVESTIGATION and asked about your character.

So now we are expected to believe that, during the course of SIX of these intrusive investigations, the FBI failed to come across a shred of information from any of the hundreds of people they spoke with about a drugging, rape-train operation that Kavanaugh and several friends operated for more than TWO YEARS?

I have never been more disgusted in my life about anything outside of my own personal behavior than I am right now. I swear, if I was in the same room as Avenatti today, one of us would not leave it alive.

This is vile, demented and just plain evil.

[End]

Here’s a personal incident that illustrates just how utterly ridiculous this woman’s claim truly is:  In the summer of 1974, a friend and I got the big idea to imitate the streaker who ran behind David Niven at that year’s Academy Awards show by streaking through the parking lot at a local Circle K food store where our high school friends liked to gather on Friday evenings.

Within about 30 seconds of our little frolic across the asphalt, a call from a horrified fellow high school student had gone into the local police department, and my pal and I were arrested a few hours later.  That’s how socially unacceptable doing such a thing was in a small town in America at that time.

But the Creepy Porn Lawyer wants you all to believe that our Supreme Court Nominee spent no fewer than two solid years running a punch-spiking, girl-drugging, rape-train party ring in a small town among the students at a high school with a total enrollment of about 400, and nobody called the police, everybody – even the victims – kept it all a big secret, and no one said a word about any of it until 37 years later.  If you are dumb enough to believe any of that, please seek help.

Because, after all, this…is CNN. – Some anonymous guy “came forward” yesterday afternoon to accuse Judge Kavanaugh of raping an unidentified woman on a boat in 1995.  When it was within an hour revealed that this guy was a nutjob who has made violent threats against President Trump, he withdrew his accusation.  Naturally, many hours later, CNN still has an uncorrected report up on its website claiming this clown’s accusation represents a fourth accuser.  What else would we expect?

The Fake News Media – depravity’s willing facilitators. – That brings me around to the actual point I want to make in this long and winding piece, which is that the Democrats feel free to engage in the vile, evil, demented behaviors in which they have engaged related to this nomination (and everything else for that matter) because they know they will never be held accountable for doing so by our fake news media.

While most of us – me included – have expressed our disgust over what we have witnessed during the confirmation process by targeting the Democrats who have organized and paid for all of it, that is really missing the point to some extent.  Because the root of the problem here is that our country no longer has a legitimate, functioning fourth estate.

The freedom of the press guaranteed in the first amendment to the Constitution was placed there because the founders of this country knew it was critical to have a free press that would hold those in power accountable for their bad actions.  The history of mankind that had gone before the founding of our country clearly told them that, where no such accountability exists, political organizations would almost without exception resort to destructive behavior in the pursuit of political power.

In our society, the role of the free press is supposed to be to serve as that watchdog, that entity that will inform the public whenever the members of either major party engage in behavior that is destructive to the foundations of our republic.  Sadly, in recent years, our major media outlets have completely abandoned that role in the name of the pursuit of their demented view of what constitutes “social justice.”  The belief that conservatism and capitalism are evil is ingrained into their tiny minds by the leftist professors who dominate our nation’s college campuses, and that belief system colors everything they do once they are on the job.

The result is that our major media organizations, with only a handful of exceptions, now perform as nothing more than propaganda outlets for the Democrat Party, and more specifically for its increasingly radicalized voter base.  The consequence of that is what we have witnessed on our television screens for the past two years, as the Democrat Party funds and coordinates the rising level of leftist violence on our streets, and mounts the disgraceful political circus designed to destroy not just the reputation of Judge Kavanaugh, but his family and his life as well.

For all you Millennials, there is this great book called “Animal Farm” that your parents and grandparents were forced to read when they were in high school.  That book perfectly describes how a society degenerates into absolute chaos when there is no societal mechanism for holding those in power accountable for their bad actions.  You should go out to Amazon and pay a few bucks to read it, because it perfectly describes what is happening in our society today, thanks to the Democrats and their willing enablers in our national fake news media.

President Trump Drops the Mother of all Leverage Bombs as the Week Ends

The Evening Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Event #1 – The newsfakers at the New York Times suddenly decided they needed to change the overriding narrative heading into the weekend, issuing an obvious bit of #fakenews claiming – according to anonymous sources, of course – that Deputy AG Rod Rosenstein wanted to wear a wire to his meetings in mid-2017 with President Donald Trump, and also told Robert Mueller that he could recruit cabinet members to invoke the 25th Amendment as a way to remove Trump from office.  Rosenstein blasted back with an outright, unqualified denial of both claims within a few minutes of the piece’s publication, the lack of weasel words indicating that the slimy Deputy AG is actually telling the truth for once.

What does this tell us?  It tells us that the Democrats are very nervous going into this weekend with where the antics of Dianne Feinstein and Christine Ford and her army of expensive leftwing activist lawyers have led them.  Because we know for sure that the fake news media never voluntarily changes the overriding narrative if the Democrats are happy with the current one.  That just doesn’t happen.

So, why did it happen today?  My theory is that the release of a very inconvenient poll by the extreme leftwing Huffington Post this morning created a bit of a panic among Democrats, who no doubt believed they were winning this week to that point.  That poll shows that just 26% of those surveyed believe that Ms. Ford is “credible.”

Coming as it does after a full week of the most disgusting full court press of character assassination seen in a quarter of a century, and a full year of the #MeToo movement brainwashing the public that you simply must believe the woman out of hand in this sort of situation, that result has got to be an extreme shock to the Democrat system.

Event #2 – Then there were these two tweets this morning from the account of President Trump:

…and…

Dim-witted reporters all over the fake news media portrayed this as the President backing down in the face of still more stonewalling by Rosenstein and FBI Director Christopher Wray.  But I’ve been studying these tweets all day, and they look to me like a pretty impressive display of negotiating and leverage deployment on the part of Mr. Trump.

Let’s take them sentence-by-sentence because every sentence contains a directed message:

First sentence:  “I met with the DOJ concerning the declassification of various UNREDACTED documents.”  Note the emphasis on “UNREDACTED”.  Remember, the President has these documents in-hand, has known for many months exactly what these documents contain, and more importantly who they will embarrass and likely incriminate, including Rosenstein himself in all likelihood.  His threat to have them issued in unredacted form is a threat to the freedom of the Deputy AG and many others, like Comey, Strzok, Page and Brennan.

In this relationship, just as in his relationship on tariffs with Mexico, Canada, the EU and China, Trump holds all the leverage.  That sentence reminds all these skunks and snakes that he has absolute authority to release the documents in unredacted form at any time he sees fit.

Next sentence:  “They agreed to release them but stated that so doing may have a perceived negative impact on the Russia probe.”  Who do you think that sentence is directed towards?  Bob Mueller, you think?  Yes.  These deep state scumbags have held Mueller over Trump’s head as a threat for more than a year now, and Trump uses the word “perceived” to let everyone know he does not agree with that assessment and will not hesitate to move forward on his own if need be.  He also reminds Mueller that these documents will no doubt be damaging to him personally  as well as his investigation, and that it is time to move quickly to wrap things up.

Next sentence:  “Also, key Allies’ called to ask not to release.”  That would be London and Australia calling, since they know the full truth about their involvement in the 2016 spying on the Trump campaign will be extremely embarrassing.  So, Trump is reminding them of the leverage he holds on them as well, which could come in handy in some future negotiation.

Next 2 sentences:  “Therefore, the Inspector General………has been asked to review these documents on an expedited basis.” …and… “I believe he will move quickly on this (and hopefully other things which he is looking at).”  So, you agree to tuck it safely over with Michael Horowitz and pressure him to hurry up not only on getting the declass review done, but also on his final report on the whole FISA Abuse scandal, which should be close to finalized in any event.  Again, a classic application of leverage.

Next sentence:  “In the end I can always declassify if it proves necessary.”  Another unambiguous reminder that he has absolute authority to move forward, that he has the unredacted documents in his possession, and that he won’t hesitate to move ahead if the stonewalling continues.

Final sentence:  “Speed is very important to me – and everyone!”  It’s important to the President because he wants these documents out quickly.  It’s important to everyone else involved because he held back from declassifying a bunch of other documents – like the Rosenstein memos to Mueller authorizing and expanding the Special Counsel investigation and the FBI 302 forms from the January 2017 interview of General Mike Flynn – that might be even more damaging and incriminating to these bad actors, and which he could move forward on if the stonewalling continues.

This wasn’t President Trump backing off – it was President Trump reminding everyone exactly who has all the leverage in this situation.

That is all.

The Democrat/Media’s ‘Blue Wave’ Crashes on the Shoals of Texas Reality

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

But…but…but…BLUE WAVE!!!!…or…or something… – Just as Beto Mania and We’re Turnin’ Texas Purple Fever began to really kick into high gear, that inconvenient thing called “harsh reality” jumped up and slapped Democrats and their fake news media press agents in their collective ugly face in Texas on Tuesday.

The first event early in the day came in the form of a new poll from Quinnipiac, showing Governor Greg Abbott holding a 19-point lead over his poor, un-funded, out-of-her-depth Democrat opponent, Lupe Valdez, and coming up with a 9-point lead for Ted Cruz over Irish Bob O’Rourke, who likes to call himself “Beto” in order to try to attract Hispanic voters.  While this poll is probably no more useful than any of those that came before, it did at least survey “likely” Texas voters, and provides one data point indicating the race is moving into a more normal paradigm as Election Day approaches and Cruz. after basically ceding the playing field to his opponent during the first 9 months of the year, actually begins to campaign in earnest.

For those of you still thinking “But Beto’s soooooo cute!  Beto cusses a lot so Millenials will rush to the polls to vote for him!  Beto’s just like a Kennedy!  Beto can stillllllll wiiiiiinnnnnnnn!!!!”, think about this:  While some polls taken in this race this year have indicated that it might be close, not a single one of them has resulted in a lead for Irish Bob.  Not one.  Even an August poll that absurdly used a sample containing an even percentage of Republican and Democrat voters showed Cruz with a narrow lead.

If this race were really all that close – like the Senate races in Missouri or Florida, for example – you would have polls alternately showing Cruz and Irish Bob with leads.  That hasn’t happened because this race really isn’t close.  It’s a 10-12 point election in favor of Ted Cruz – always has been, and will be in the end.

The second event that threw Texas Democrats into fits of despair was the runoff election in Texas Senate District 19, in which long-time Democrat state legislator Pete Gallego squared off against Republican Pete Flores in the race to replace former Democrat Sen. Carlos Uresti, who was sentenced to prison in a fraud case earlier in the year.  Given that the race was in a heavily-Democrat district, a district that The Pantsuit Princess won by 12 points in 2016, and featured a seasoned veteran as the Democrat candidate, Texas Democrats assumed they’d be able to hold the seat.

Uh, no.  The voters in District 19 decided they’d had enough Democrat representation for awhile, and Flores walked off with a surprisingly easy 6-point victory.  For Texans, it is important to note that the pickup of this seat most likely means that the GOP will control a true super-majority in the Texas state senate when the legislature convenes in January for the first time in, well, forever.  Texas isn’t turning “purple” in 2018 – it’s most likely going to end up turning even more “red.”

God Bless Texas.

The Kavanaugh accuser is clearly lying, and it shows. – How do we now know for certain sure that Christina Ford is lying about her accusations against Brett Kavanaugh?  Let us count the ways:

  • She’s now refusing to show up on Monday to tell her tale of a 36-year-ago sexual assault that really wasn’t a sexual assault at all to the Senate Judiciary Committee;
  • She’s absurdly demanding the FBI conduct an investigation into a 36-year-ago event for which, even if it is a thing, the statute of limitations ran out at least 29 years ago, and for which literally the only “evidence” is her claim.  Any FBI agent can perform all the “investigation” necessary by simply reading the Washington Post;
  • She makes this ludicrous demand safe in the knowledge that a) the FBI doesn’t have jurisdiction in the case in any event, and b) the FBI has already announced it won’t be investigating anything because, hey, IT DOESN’T HAVE JURISDICTION IN THIS CASE;
  • Sen. Dianne Feinstein, the despicable, corrupt creep who initially served as Ford’s sponsor in this transparent attempt to delay or derail the nomination, started crawfishing late yesterday, telling reporters that she “can’t be sure everything is true.  I just don’t know.”  This is creepy politician-speak for “She’s lying; I know she’s lying, so I’m going to start slowly backing away from her and pretending I really had nothing to do with any of this in order to cover my own butt.”

Naturally, Ford’s lawyer rolled out the obligatory “she’s been getting death threats” claim as her client’s story was falling apart yesterday in a desperate effort to curry favor with the news media and the public.  This is something like Page 72, paragraph 3 of the Democrat/fake news media Saul Alinsky Memorial Playbook, and was so predictable you just have to look on in wonder at the fact that some people are still stupid enough to buy it.

Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley and Majority Leader Mitch McConnell finally started to grow some huevos late in the day as their indignation at this spectacle grew, with both men holding firm to next Monday as Ford’s one and only shot at coming forward to make her transparently false claims under oath and possible penalty of perjury.  But it’s a long way until Monday, and the Democrats and fake news media will continue to pound for further delay day after day until then.  We’ll just have to wait and see if these gents can hold firm in the face of all of that, and there is literally no reason at all to believe they will, based on past performance and the fact that they continue to take their communications advice from the very same firms that advise all these creepy, corrupt Democrats.

What will most likely happen will be for Ms. Ford to go onto several of the Sunday morning talk shows – avoiding Fox News Sunday like the plague, of course – where she can be sure she will only be asked easy, softball questions by reliable Democrat toadies like George Stephanopoulos, Chuck Todd and Jake Tapper.  Most importantly, she won’t have to answer questions under oath or thus face potential perjury charges. ABC, CNN and NBC will no doubt the thrilled to serve as her vehicles in this endeavor because, hey, this is what they do for leftwing activists like Ms. Ford.

The most intelligent course for McConnell and Grassley will be to just realize nothing they do will appease the fake news media, which will pummel them regardless.  So they might as well just hold firm to Monday’s date, give Ford until noon Friday to accept the offer, and cancel the hearing if she refuses to accept.  That’s a more than fair process, and will pretty clearly demonstrate to any fair-minded individual that Ford should be disregarded if she isn’t willing to participate in it.

After that, hold the damn vote and get the man confirmed.  Stop letting the senate minority and our fake national news media hold this country hostage.

That is all.

If You Get Your News From Twitter, Tuesday was, like, Totally Awesome

The Evening Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Some Twitter highlights from today:

Wait, you mean, like, newspapers that print inflammatory, blatantly false op/eds defaming the President of the United States without identifying the writer? Hey, I know one…

So, what do you do if you’re one of the fake news media outlets that has been promoting the notion that Irish Beto O’Rourke is going to beat Ted Cruz in the Texas Senate race, and you see a new Quinnipiac poll that has Cruz expanding his lead in the race to 9 points?  If you’re the newsfakers at @The Hill, you hilariously bury the lead as far and deeply as you can possibly bury it:

…and if that doesn’t get you far enough into fakery, you issue another tweet with another hilariously-biased headline that names the Democrat, but identifies the Republican with the four-letter last name only as “Texas GOP senator…”.  Holy cow, that is some serious #fakenews right there.

Meanwhile, Stephen Miller lightens the mood with a hilarious offering of his own, lampooning the shameful efforts by Democrats to falsely portray the FBI’s jurisdiction in the Kavanaugh matter…

Houston radio talk show host nails Democrats and their voting habits here:

Meanwhile, back in #fakenews world, NBC refuses to be outdone by The Hill or anyone else.  Note the use of the term “blindsided”.  Yes, because President Trump has only been transparently previewing his declassification action for about four months now:

 

Watching this guy change positions is like watching a child with a damn yo-yo. Blast Jeff Flake all you want, but at least he is consistently venal and cowardly.

Back in #fakenews world, MSNBC’s Kyle Griffin delivers a real “scoop” – that shameful valor thief Richard Blumenthal opposes the Kavanaugh nomination.  You’re a real scoop-meister, there, Kyle.

And finally, from our Good God Who Cares department, the Daily Caller delivers this little gem:

*sigh*

Just another day in getting the news as only Twitter can deliver it America.

Judiciary Democrats Descend Into the Abyss of Mob Rule

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

It beats the hell out of anyone named McCain. – Arizona Governor Doug Ducey announced his pick for replacing deceased-and-at-long-last-buried Senator John McCain.  Thankfully, the Governor’s choice had a last name that was not “McCain,” as in Cindy or Meghan.

Ducey named former Senator John Kyl to fill the seat, at least temporarily.  Kyl has only committed to serving through the end of the current congress, which will be replaced by the new congress in January, but he left open the possibility that he would serve through 2020. Kyl is a bit of a RINO, but at least he won’t be basing his votes on petty grudges, which is a huge improvement.

So the good news is that Arizona finally has a real Republican filling this seat.  The bad news is that we could face the potential of another McCain being appointed to the seat next January.

He’s written more fiction than Tom Clancy. – Bob Woodward won a Pulitzer Prize way back in 1975, and has been living off of his Watergate reporting ever since.  He’s also been publishing political fiction since that time, as this 2012 piece from Politico details.  Who can ever forget Woodward’s “deathbed confession” scene from his political novel “Veil: The Secret Wars of the CIA 1981-1987”, in which he claimed Reagan-era CIA Director Bill Casey told him all about Reagan’s “direct involvement” in the Iran/Contra deal?

The only problem with that scene is that Bob Woodward never visited Bob Casey while he lay on his hospital deathbed.  A mere technicality in today’s utterly fake news media, true, but a technicality that matters nonetheless.

The political fabulist claims that his latest book bashing President Trump and many of his senior staff is all based on “first-hand sources” and that he recorded all the conversations recounted therein.  But news of the book’s inflammatory claims was met with outright, direct denials from the likes of General John Kelly and General James Mattis.  (Woodward’s old running buddy, Carl Bernstein, said Kelly should resign after hearing his denial.  Woodward might have preferred Bernstein keep his running mouth shut given that he’s just been caught faking up a report for CNN.)

Thus, to save his sterling reputation (I kid), Woodward’s solution is simple:  Release the recordings.  You will see that he will not do that because, as has been his habit for more than 40 years, Woodward is making stuff up in order to sell books.

Hey, maybe get Bob Woodward to write them!  He’ll make up something great! – Meanwhile, over in Democrat/media Russia Collusion fantasyland, Special Counsel Bob Woodw…er, Mueller announced full capitulation on the whole question of finding anything resembling “collusion” between the Trump Campaign and Russia during the 2016 election campaign, notifying the White House that he is now happy to accept answers to his questions in writing, as the White House has been insisting all along.  This is what is known as waving the white flag.

Mueller left his options open on to directly question President Trump on the equally fantasy-based question of obstruction of justice, but it’s only a matter of time before the surrender comes on that idiotic, media-fed notion as well.  How, after all, would Mueller plan to mount a case that the President “obstructed justice” in firing ex-FBI Director and current teenage drama queen James Comey when every Democrat in America was at the time urging Mr. Trump to fire Comey for incompetence?  How would Mueller make such a case when the DOJ memo justifying the firing was written by the very Deputy Attorney General – Rod Rosenstein – who appointed him to become Special Counsel in the first place?  How would Mueller and his barely-competent political hacks deal at trial with testimony from Harvard Law Professor Alan Dershowitz and George Washington University Law Professor Jonathan Turley that it is simply not possible under our Constitution for the President to have committed obstruction in that firing given that he has an absolute right to fire anyone who works for him for any reason?

Mueller, desperate to keep this all alive until after Election Day, is slow-playing the inevitable as best he can, but capitulation on the obstruction question is coming in due time.

Ladies and Gentlemen!  Welcome to the Greatest Show on Earth! – As the daily Campaign Update predicted yesterday, Democrats on the Senate Judiciary Committee turned the confirmation hearing for Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh into a three ring circus.  Which is totally in character, given that today’s Democrats base their entire political strategy on the old P.T. Barnum nostrum that there’s a sucker born every minute.  That’s how they raise money, after all.  Sadly, the birth rate for suckers appears to have rapidly accelerated over the past few decades.

The day’s shenanigans and the fact that all the protests were pre-planned by the Democrats working in concert with some of the worst people in the world – like the Sharia Law-promoting Linda Sarsour – have been well-documented, so I won’t repeat them here.  Just rest assured that as bad as Tuesday was, things are only going to go downhill from here, because this is what the Democrat Party has become, a semi-organized band of thugs promoting mob rule.

I have written for 25 years now of my belief that the national Democrat Party is the single greatest threat America’s democratic republic has ever faced, and that belief is sadly coming to ultimate fruition today.  You continue to vote for these people and their thuggery at your own peril.

Just another day in Democrat thuggery America.

That is all.

Hollywood Performs a Cultural Appropriation on Neil Armstrong

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Wait, you hired a Canadian to play Neil Armstrong?  Isn’t that, like, cultural appropriation or something? – Hey, everybody, Hollywood has finally made a film about American hero Neil Armstrong, the first man on the moon.  That only took half a century.

That’s the good news.  The bad news is that they left out the iconic moment in which Armstrong plants the U.S. Flag on the moon’s surface, because of course they did.  Predictably, this is causing a backlash from many…wait for it…patriotic Americans!  Go figure.

The film’s Canadian star, Ryan Gosling, defended what he said was an intentional decision because Armstrong’s achievement – which was done on the back of billions of American dollars, a decade of American research and exploration, and with the support of more than 400,000 people, all of whom were…wait for it…AMERICANS – “transcended countries and borders.”

No.  Not it did not, you smarmy jackass.  As a great Twitter meme pointed out on Friday, there are two kinds of countries:  The kind that use the metric system, and the kind that has put men on the moon.

Just one more reason why if you go to the movies these days to see any film not produced by Dinesh D’Souza, you are part of the problem.

Tired of all this Winning yet?  Part I – Far left fake news outlet The Village Voice announced yesterday that it will cease all publication immediately, leaving the nation far better off as a result.  Let’s do The New York Times next.

Tired of all this Winning yet?  Part II – The State Department announced that the U.S. will withhold all contributions to a U.N. sponsored money pit that pretends to provide aid to Palestinian refugees.  A spokesman for the State Department called the agency’s business model “unsustainable,” which in diplomatic speak means all the money was being siphoned off either to support Palestinian terrorist acts against Israel or going into the pockets of corrupt U.N. officials.  Just one more element of the un-American legacy of Barack Hussein Obama gone.

Tired of all this Winning yet?  Part III – The Democrats’ 2004 presidential nominee and former failed Secretary of State John Kerry is refusing to rule out another presidential run in 2020.  Oh, please, please, please, let this happen.  I really cannot wait for a rerun of that particular fiasco.

Hey, the Texas news media has been telling us he’s just like a Kennedy, so… – Irish Beto O’Rourke took a wallop to his campaign on Friday, as the Houston Chronicle and San Antonio Express News both ran stories detailing new facts about his drunk driving incident from 20 years ago.  To be fair, O’Rourke has long admitted to the fact he was arrested for DWI, calling it an inexcusable act.  But what he has left out of his maudlin confessions are the facts that he blew a 1.36 on the breathalyzer test that night, and that he attempted to flee the scene of the wreck he caused in his drunken state before being arrested.

The Democrat-tilting news media in Texas have been comparing O’Rourke to a Kennedy for months now.  We just didn’t know prior to yesterday that they were talking about Ted Kennedy.

While the Chronicle and Express News are to be commended for actually filing these reports, they have yet to report on the fact that, in 1995, young Irish Beto was also tossed in the pokey on burglary-related charges while in college.  According to Politifact Texas, “O’Rourke and fellow students were arrested for “attempted forcible entry” under the section of the Texas penal code titled “Burglary.” We also added O’Rourke’s reference, in Palestine, to the burglary arrest.”

Gosh, maybe now we know why Irish Beto suddenly backed out of the debate with Ted Cruz that was supposed to have taken place last night.  The two candidates have four more scheduled debates over the coming weeks – we’ll just have to wait and see if our “Kennedy-esque” boy wonder chooses to keep any of those appointments.

Why is it always such a shock when someone at the FBI actually does their real job? – After state law enforcement officials in New Mexico had completely hosed up the case against the five radical Islamic terrorists who were training kidnapped children to commit atrocities in our country, the feds finally decided to step in.  On Friday, the FBI actually took time out from its ongoing silent coup efforts against President Trump to do its real job for a change, placing the five terrorists under arrest for violations of federal weapons and conspiracy laws.

“The defendants, Jany Leveille, 35, a Haitian national illegally present in the United States, Siraj Ibn Wahhaj, 40, Hujrah Wahhaj, 37, Subhanah Wahhaj, 35, and Lucas Morton, 40, are charged in a criminal complaint that was filed earlier today in the U.S. District Court for the District of New Mexico,” the bureau said in a statement.

“The criminal complaint charges Jany Leveille with being an alien unlawfully in possession of firearms and ammunition in the District of New Mexico from Nov. 2017 through Aug. 2018,” the bureau said. “The criminal complaint charges the other four defendants with aiding and abetting Leveille in committing the offense, and with conspiring with Leveille to commit the offense.”

Presumably, the arresting agents can now go back to stonewalling document production requests from various congressional committees in the hopes of getting safely past the midterm elections.  Because that is the real focus of our nation’s “premier law enforcement agency” these days.

Just another day in every day is a new day America.

That is all.

Trey Gowdy and Adam Schiff Walk Into a Bar…

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.
