Face it: Obama’s DOJ and FBI Were Criminal Enterprises

The Afternoon Campaign Update
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

If you thought the winding down of the fake, failed “investigations” by Robert Mueller and the Senate Intelligence Committee would lead to a similar winding down of efforts by your fake news media outlets to keep the whole “Russia Collusion” fantasy play alive, well, think again.

If anything, the various fake news media outlets have actually begun doubling down on their news-faking enterprises in recent days. CBS is leading the way today with the release of outtakes from the powder puff interview set to air on “60 Minutes” Sunday evening with deep state skunk Andrew McCabe. You all remember McCabe, right? He’s the ex-Deputy Director of the FBI who was fired about year ago for repeatedly lying to internal DOJ investigators about his habit of illegally leaking classified information to various fake media outlets.

See how this incestuous relationship works? Think CBS will make the slightest effort delve into that glaring conflict of interest during this interview? Want to buy some oceanfront property I own out in Central Texas? The potential questions here are endless, but none of them will be asked by “60 Minutes”.

Note the headline on the CBS piece linked above, because it is very important:  “McCabe says he ordered the obstruction of justice probe of President Trump”. That very admission proves that President Donald Trump inherited upper echelons at the FBI and Department of Justice that were in fact criminal enterprises.

As Mollie Hemingway, writing at The Federalist, pointed out in January, a butt-covering piece dumped out by the news fakers at the New York Times late on Friday, January 18 basically admitted as much:

“Admitting there is no actual evidence for their probe into whether Trump ‘worked for the Russians,’ FBI officials instead cited their foreign policy differences with him, his lawful firing of bungling FBI Director James Comey, and alarm that he accurately revealed to the American public that he was told he wasn’t under investigation by the FBI, when they preferred to hide that fact.”

In that same piece, Hemingway further pointed out that CNN had also made damaging admissions about the traitorous motivations of McCabe and his fellow FBI cronies:

Just last month [December, 2018], CNN reported that top FBI officials opened an investigation into Trump after the lawful firing of Comey because Trump “needed to be reined in,” a shocking admission of abuse of power by our nation’s top law enforcement agency.

In other words, your Federal Bureau of Investigation, on orders from Andrew McCabe, engaged in an “obstruction of justice” investigation in retaliation for President Trump’s legal and well-justified firing of the utterly corrupt and incompetent FBI Director James Comey.

But McCabe is not the only traitorous skunk in this drama. It is also vitally important that everyone keep in mind that he was at the time working under the full supervision of then-Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, because the worthless AG Jeff Sessions had stupidly and needlessly recused himself.  Rosenstein not only fully approved of McCabe’s retaliatory act, he also allegedly offered to wear a wire in meetings with the duly-elected President of the United States of America in order to try to build a case for either impeachment or removing him from office under the guise of the 25th Amendment.

Even worse, when reports of the DOJ/FBI criminal enterprise began to leak out in the spring of 2017, Rosenstein then acted in concert with the fired Comey to dummy-up (through Comey’s illegal leaks to the very cooperative news-fakers at the New York Times) the very thin justification he used for the appointment of Special Counsel Robert Mueller, whose best buddies in life turn out to be – wait for it – Rod Rosenstein and James Comey!

Breathtaking.

When honest historians catalog the events of the past two years, they will record that, when Donald Trump assumed the office of the presidency on January 20, 2017, he was faced with a cabal of outright criminals in the upper management of both the DOJ and the FBI who were conspiring with willing media outlets to take him down. That is of course assuming that any such thing as an “honest historian”, already an endangered species, still exists in our country decades from now.

In the meantime, it appears that pretty much all of the participants in this Deep State cabal have been fired or otherwise removed from any line of authority.  The lone exception is Rosenstein, who announced last month his plans to leave shortly after William Barr assumes the Attorney General’s office, which will happen in a matter of days.

But firings and resignations aren’t enough: The ultimate restoration of an impartial, one-tiered system of justice in our country requires that the bad actors in this criminal conspiracy to bring down a presidency be prosecuted and punished.

We can only hope Mr. Barr is up to the task.

That is all.

James Comey Reaches Peak Teen Drama Queen

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Hey, lookey here – the 302 apparently exists after all! – Waiting until the very last possible moment, Robert Mueller and his gang of Clinton/Obama thugs finally, at long last, produced a document purporting to be the orginal FBI 302 form from the FBI’s entrapment interview with General Mike Flynn. The production of the key document comes just hours before today’s scheduled sentencing hearing, and the document is heavily redacted. Because of course it is.

Les is no more.:  Wait – what’s this? A big media company actually did the right thing in a massive sexual harassment scandal? This must be a work of fiction, right? No? It’s real? Go figure.

Yes, friends, this would never happen at NBC, MSNBC or CNN, but over at CBS Corp., the people in charge decided on Monday to terminate former CEO Les Moonves for cause in the midst of a massive sexual abuse scandal, denying him the $122 million severance package he would have otherwise been entitled to receive. That’s a big deal, one which no doubt sent waves of fear across senior management teams at big media companies everywhere.

Cool.

Teenage Drama Queen Update: Former FBI Director and current Teenage Drama Queen James Comey exited his second tense day of behind-closed-doors testimony on Capitol Hill and had this to say about the tattered reputation of the agency he “led” for several years:

“Director Comey, the FBI’s reputation has taken a big hit over the last year. Do you share any of the responsibility for that?” the [Fox News] reporter asked.

“No. The FBI’s reputation has taken a big hit because the President of the United States, with his acolytes, has lied about it constantly and, in the face of those lies, a whole lot of good people who watch your network believe that nonsense. That’s a tragedy.”

Congressman Mark Meadows, who questioned Comey in Monday’s hearing, responded very succinctly:

Exactly.  Let’s review just some of the reasons why the FBI’s reputation has taken hits in recent years:

  • Comey himself led a sham investigation into Hillary Clinton’s illegal email server;
  • Comey himself led an effort to illegally spy on the Trump presidential campaign and transition team;
  • The FBI revealed to be fully aware of and actively surveiling a series of Islamic terrorists and school shooters;
  • The utter failure of the FBI to conduct anything remotely resembling a competent investigation of the worst mass shooting in American history in Las Vegas;
  • The revelation of the texts of Super Duper Agent Peter Strzok and his mistress Lisa Page;
  • The FBI’s active support of the Gestapo tactics deployed by Special Counsel Robert Mueller;
  • The FBI’s resolute refusal to respond to 2 years of legal document requests issued by an array of congressional committees;
  • The FBI’s habit of “redacting” key passages from key documents solely to cover-up wrongdoing by FBI officials;
  • The repeated commissions of outright perjury before congressional committees by Comey, Andrew McCabe, Strzok and other FBI officials;
  • The firing and forced resignations of a broad array of senior FBI personnel over the past year, including McCabe, Strzok, James Baker and many others.

This list could honestly go on and on, but the point is clear: The reason the FBI’s former reputation as the nation’s premier law-enforcement agency is in tatters today is directly attributable to the Obama-era decision by Comey and his leadership team to stop enforcing the law on anyone associated with the Clintons or the Obamas.  Under Comey, and Robert Mueller before him, the FBI was turned into nothing more than the aggressive attack dog for the Deep State, and that is sadly the state in which it remains today.

White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders summed the day up perfectly.:

Couldn’t have said it better myself.

Assessing blame where it belongs is the key to Progressive life.:

Hey, let’s go get our exercise in and play a game of pot!:

Why is Mueller Afraid to Produce the Original Flynn 302 Form?

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Why is Robert Mueller so desperate to keep the original Flynn 302 hidden?: Andy McCarthy, who teams with Victor Davis Hanson as the only two writers worth reading anymore at The National Review, has a piece out this morning in which he asks the single most key point in the effort to frame General Mike Flynn:  Where is the FBI’s 302 form from his January 24, 2017 “interview” with Peter Strzok and another agent?

In their most recent court filing submitted on Friday, Mueller and his team did present a “302” form to the judge in the case – the increasingly impatient Emmet G. Sullivan – but, as McCarthy points out, that form was compiled not from the interview with Flynn, but from an interview Mueller’s team conducted with Strzok in August of 2017, 8 full months after the entrapment meeting with General Flynn. FBI procedure requires agents conducting suspect or witness interviews to memorialize them in 302 forms immediately after they have been completed, not 2/3rds of a year later.

Mueller and his band of Clinton/Obama shills offer no explanation regarding why they did not produce the original 302 or where it is currently located. They appear to be trying to claim that the original document has mysteriously gone missing. Is that really true?

Let’s think this through: The utterly corrupt FBI agent Peter Strzok and another, more junior, agent – whose name is Joe Pientka, although the fake news media continues to pretend to not know his identity – conduct an entrapment interview of General Flynn on orders from then-FBI Director Jim Comey and then-Acting Attorney General Sally Yates. They tell Flynn that this is just a friendly visit, that he has no need for legal counsel to be present, and then proceed to do their best to entrap him in a process crime.

At the end of the interview, Strzok and Pientka look at one another, shrug their shoulders, and agree that Flynn was not lying, or that if he did misstate anything, it was not intentional. We know this to be the case because James Comey himself has confirmed it multiple times under oath before multiple congressional committees.

So, standing there with their big bag of nothing, the senior agent Strzok looks at junior agent Pientka and says something like “have fun spending the next two hours memorializing this bag of nothing in your 302 form,” and walks down the hall to fill in his boss – the utterly corrupt Andrew McCabe – on the day’s failed entrapment effort. Pientka files an honest 302 report on the meeting, and that’s where it all ended. Well, until May, 2017, when the utterly corrupt Rod Rosenstein appointed the utterly corrupt Robert Mueller to become the Special Counsel who would take on the task of building an impeachment case against President Donald Trump.

Mueller spends a couple of months casting about for some bit, any bit of evidence that someone, anyone in the Trump Campaign had indeed “colluded” with the Russians during the 2016 campaign. By August, he too is holding the same big bag of nothing that agents Strzok and Pientka were holding at the conclusion of their January entrapment meeting with General Flynn.

After a discussion with Strzok – who had been on Mueller’s staff in June and July – the two decide that Flynn, who was intimately involved in the Trump Campaign, holds the keys to their kingdom. Flynn had, after all, had a telephone conversation with his Russian counterpart in December 2016 at the behest of then-President-elect Trump. The call was nothing out of the ordinary – a get to know you kind of thing on behalf of an incoming President by that president’s future national security advisor – but it was something. Strzok and Mueller just had to find some hook they could use to start bullying Flynn into saying damaging things about Trump and his campaign.

So they go back to that January 24 meeting and Strzok says something like “hey, maybe that dang Flynn did lie to us after all,” and they call Pientka into the office. When Pientka arrives, Strzok and Mueller try to convince him to alter his original 302 from January.

But here’s the problem: Pientka is the rare non-corrupt FBI agent in the DC office, and he refuses to commit a federal felony by dishonestly altering his original 302 from the meeting. What to do?

Hey, no problem – it’s Peter Strzok to the rescue. Hell, this guy will lie about anything – dummying up a fake 302 form for the purpose of getting rid of President Donald Trump is an act of valor in his demented mind, as we have clearly seen from his thousands of text messages with his mistress, Lisa Page. So, Mueller’s people conduct an interview with Strzok, and voila! – the magic new 302 form from an interview conducted 8 months prior is created.

Much of this is conjecture, sure, but it is a scenario that fits perfectly with the facts as we know them publicly, and it explains so many things about this obvious frame of General Flynn.

For example, multiple congressional committees have been trying for more than a year now to have Agent Pientka come over to Capitol Hill and offer sworn testimony about his and Strzok’s meeting with Flynn.  But Rosenstein and FBI Director Christopher Wray have consistently blocked all such efforts. Rosenstein, Wray and Mueller simply cannot afford for that to happen.

One thing is certain: There was a contemporaneous 302 form created by either Strzok or Pientka immediately following their interview with Flynn. Comey and McCabe both have confirmed that fact in sworn testimony. Mueller appears willing to go to any lengths necessary to prevent Judge Sullivan and the American people from seeing what is in that original 302.

This is just one more reason why President Trump not only has an incentive, but an absolute public duty to declassify not just the original 302 in the Flynn case, but all the documents related to the Mueller Witch Hunt, and do it soon.

That is all.

The Beto Mania “Victory” Tour Goes On, Only Without That “Victory” Part

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.

Fascism is on the March all Over the Globe, and America is no Exception

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

RIP, George Herbert Walker Bush. – I was awake in the middle of the night when I heard about the passing at the age of 94 of former President George H.W. Bush, just eight months after the death of former First Lady Barbara Bush. I laid awake thinking of what to say about it all. I didn’t agree with him about some things, did agree with him about others, but let’s just leave the politics to others, because I’m not going to say anything negative about such a gracious man who was an institution in my favorite city of Houston, and served his country with honor and valor in World War II.

I literally ran into President Bush and the First Lady at a reception at the Johnson Space Center in Pasadena 26 years ago, and almost got arrested for it. I was walking along talking with a couple of friends, not looking where I was headed when the Bush’s suddenly emerged from the gift shop and I bumped right into him. A couple of Secret Service guys properly rushed in and started walking me and my friends away, but the President just laughed, called them off, and then – as was typical of Mr. Bush – spent about five minutes chatting us up before the agents convinced him to move along.

We’ll hear hundreds of stories like this over the next several days – seems like half the residents of Houston have a story like it to tell – because that was who this particular President was in his personal life. In the end, regardless of what anyone thinks about how he went about it, he leaves behind a lifetime of service to his country, in the process compiling a resume as impressive as anyone in our nation’s history, and that is something to respect and admire.

Rest in Peace, Poppy.  You deserve it.

NPR jumps headlong into the newsfaking business. – Ok, NPR was already there to some extent, but this week they showed they’re serious about it. The news fakers over there smeared Donald Trump, Jr. on Friday, running with a fake story and then refusing to properly retract it and issue a real correction.

The story, published early Friday morning, falsely alleged Trump Jr.’s testimony before congress about a short-lived plan to build a Trump Tower in Moscow several years before the 2016 elections conflicted with that of Michael Cohen, who plead guilty for lying to congress over the matter earlier in the week. But a reading of the transcript of that committee hearing – a transcript that NPR itself was quoting from – very quickly and easily showed that Trump Jr. had said nothing at all that was in any way untrue.

NPR let the story linger out there in the ether of the Internet for five long hours until, late on a Friday afternoon, after all the other fake news media outlets had had a chance to roll it into fake stories of their own, they finally issued a semi-correction, but left the original piece still sitting out there basically unchanged. This is despicable, inexcusable behavior, something we’d expect from CNN or the New York Times.

Apparently, that’s where the people in charge want to take NPR. What a sad day.

This is what creeping fascism looks like. – In the second week of December, representatives from all over the world will meet in Marrakesh to approve and commit their countries to something called the “International Compact on Migration.” As you can see from watching the video below, the goal of the compact will be to make criticism of mass migration…wait for it… a HATE CRIME punishable with prison time:

As the writer notes, the U.S. will not have anyone in Marrakesh thanks to President Donald Trump, and will not become a party to this fascist compact. But Canada will, and you can bet most of the fading European semi-democracies will be there as well. These international compacts are not binding, but their provisions do end up working their ways into the laws of the signatory nations like cockroaches eating their way into your kitchen baseboards.

Here’s the lesson: If the 2016 election had gone the other way, President Pantsuit Princess would have her emissary there under orders to be the first signatory to this completely anti-democracy compact.

Frightening indeed.

Here’s what a headlong rush into fascism looks like. – But hey, if you want to see fascism already in full force here in the United States, here you go:

The rest of your fake news media studiously ignored this huge story, which should not surprise anyone, since the whistleblower in question was in possession of documents damaging to the Pantsuit Princess and Special Counsel Robert Mueller. The documents in question relate to the Uranium One scandal, in which both Mueller and the Fainting Felon were heavily involved, and to the Clinton Foundation.

The whistleblower, a poor schlub named Dennis Cain, had done his duty to the country, turning the documents over to a congressional committee investigating both matters. He was assured by both the committee and by DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz that he was doing so under the auspices of the Intelligence Community Whistleblower Protection Act. After his client delivered the documents to Horowitz, Cain’s lawyer says he was assured by Horowitz that an assistant would hand-carry them over to the congressional committee.

The FBI agents who showed up at Cain’s home allegedly told him he was in possession of “stolen government property”, and, after Cain had turned the documents and his personal computer over to them, spent another six hours ransacking Cain’s home. This is Gestapo behavior.

The lesson here? These whistleblower protection laws mean nothing if you’re blowing the whistle on someone named Clinton or Mueller.

Hey, what the hell is Acting Attorney General Matt Whitaker doing in his new job, anyway?

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.

That is all.

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.
