Today’s Campaign Update
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)
Beto Mania Update: Looking to burnish his street cred among demented Democrat voters, Irish Bob O’Rourke met with an anti-Semitic racist in New York over the weekend. Yes, friends, if you want to be the Democrat Party’s presidential nominee, you must kiss a lot of highly distasteful rings, none moreso than the many, many rings of lifelong race-baiter and perennial MSNBC host Al Sharpton.
Sharpton became just the latest stop on the Irish Bob “I’m Ready Even Though I’m a Loooooooser” victory tour of grand Democrat Poobahs and big Muckety-Mucks as he preps the January announcement of his candidacy.
He already met with America’s Worst Mistake (Barack Hussein Obama) a few weeks ago, and now Sharpton. We can only wait with bated breath to see who will be the next stop on the tour: Will it be Louis Farrakhan? How about prominent Democrat fundraising specialist Harvey Weinstein?
If Irish Bob should decide that Farrakhan and Weinstein are just a tad too toxic, how about the de facto owner of the Democrat National Committee, George Soros? I would suggest billionaires Tom Steyer – the “environmentalist” who made his fortune investing in coal – or media mogul Mike Bloomberg, but hey, they’re both planning to mount their own campaigns. So reaching out to them might be a little uncomfortable for all involved.
Of course, if Irish Bob really wants sound advice on how to rig, er, “win” the Democrat nomination, he could just travel on up to Chappaqua and have a sit down with the Fainting Felon. He could butter her up by bringing a bag filled with $250,000 in cash as a “contribution” to her “foundation”, two cases of vodka and maybe also bring along a couple of nice hospital gowns to add to her speaking tour on-stage wardrobe.
If it all sounds a little unsavory and demeaning, well, these are Democrats we’re talking about here, not normal people.
Paris Burning Update:
French boy President Emanuel Macron made a televised speech in which he blamed the current civil unrest in his country on 40 years of national “malaise.” So, he’s apparently transitioning from the second coming of Marie Antoinette into the second coming of Jimmy Carter. Neither one is a very good look, is it? At least Carter managed to avoid having his head chopped off, so there is that.
In his speech, the child President made a series of profound statements, such as:
“When violence is unleashed, freedom ends.”
“I take my share of responsibility.”
“I might have hurt people with my words.” and the coup de gras…
“I would ask all employers who can, pay an end-of-year bonus to their employees.”
Oh, yeah, that’ll work.
This guy is hopeless.
Speaking of hopeless, (quoting the late, great Hans Gruber)”I give you the F…B…I.” – During the course of his congressional testimony last week, former FBI Director and current Teenage Drama Queen James Comey used the phrases “I don’t know,” “I don’t remember,” “I can’t recall” or some variance thereof 245 times, which is even more than Barack Obama generally refers to himself in the first person in an hour-long speech.
In other words, it’s a lot. A lot to not remember, recall or know for a guy who spent years heading up what used to be the nation’s premier law enforcement agency but is now an anti-American tool for anti-American political interests.
Writing at the Wall Street Journal on Monday, James Freeman compiled a terrific piece detailing some of the many amazing things Comey, in his job as FBI Director, claims not to have known. Among those are:
- The FBI’s process for initiating a counterintelligence investigation;
- Who initiated the FBI’s 2016 counterintelligence investigation targeting the Trump Campaign;
- Who Christopher Steele is;
- That Christopher Steele worked for Fusion GPS;
- The fact that the Clinton Campaign funded the fake “Trump Dossier”, which was compiled by Steele through Fusion GPS;
- The fact that the “Trump Dossier” was unverified when it was used by his agency as the basis for obtaining multiple FISA warrants to spy on the Trump Campaign, Trump Transition, and Trump Administration;
and on, and on, and on. In other words, just another day for the nation’s most despicable Deep State skunk.
Go read Freeman’s piece – it’s well worth your time.
Wellllllll, you know, that’s a very, very good question.:
Jerry Nadler may not be worried about this, but dozens of his colleagues probably are. Over the last 20 years, more than 260 settlements totaling $17 million have been paid out of a congressional slush fund – at taxpayer expense – to keep members of congress out of hot water of one form or another. Many of those settlements were to dispose of complaints involving sexual harassment.
Isn’t that “hush money?” If not, what is the distinction? After all, when one of these suits has been settled, the person filing the complaint has been required to sign a non-disclosure agreement in order to get his or her money, exactly the same process Donald Trump allegedly engaged in with the playmate and the porn star. So, if it’s an impeachable offense when then-private citizen Donald Trump supposedly did it, why isn’t it an impeachable offense when a sitting member of congress does it?
So many questions, so few answers coming from our fake news media and its Democrat masters.
That is all.
