Donald Trump Just Keeps on Winning for America

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Ok, well, he IS the Boss. – Bruce Springsteen says he doesn’t “see anyone out there at the moment… the man who can beat Trump, or the woman who can beat Trump.” For some reason, the UK Daily Mail thought it was important for us all to know that, so there you go.

Tired of all this Winning yet? – President Donald Trump and Chinese President Xi Jinping agreed during the G-20 Summit over the weekend to a 90-day pause in the ongoing trade war between the two nations. While leftists in and out of our fake news media are poo-pooing the deal as just a return to the status quo prior to President Trump’s implementation of new tariffs, that is not the case at all.

The U.S. side of the deal apparently consists of agreeing to not increase U.S. tariffs on hundreds of billions of Chinese goods for the 90-day period, as Trump had threatened to do on January 1. In return, China agrees to rescind its tariffs on imports of U.S. automobiles, roll back its 40% tariff rates on most U.S. goods to lower levels, agreed to purchase an as-yet unspecified amount of U.S. goods to reduce the trade deficit, and – perhaps most importantly – to “stiffen penalties on sales of the powerful opioid fentanyl into the U.S., a step the White House press secretary described as ‘a wonderful humanitarian gesture.'”

Leftists might not like it, but the markets obviously do: Dow futures are up bigly as I write this Update this morning.  #WINNING.

Speaking of winning… – City officials in Tijuana, Mexico acted to move the estimated 6,000 “migrants” out of the sports facility they had occupied for the last few weeks due to the horrid unsanitary conditions they had created there. In a move that will make it harder for the activists among the crowd to mount further assaults on the border crossings there, city officials moved the “migrants” to an abandoned concert venue more than 10 miles further away from the border.

Griff Jenkins at Fox News – and basically no one else in our fake news media – reported last Friday that fully 1/3rd of the “migrants” were being treated for health issues, including head lice, “tuberculosis, four cases of HIV/AIDS and four separate cases of chickenpox,” according to local health authorities. With the unsanitary conditions growing worse by the day, Mexican officials also feared an outbreak of Hepatitis could take place unless the crowd was moved.

In another related turn of events, newly-inaugurated Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador (AMLO), in one of his first acts in office, “signed an agreement with his counterparts from three Central American countries to establish a development plan to stem the flow of migrants seeking asylum in the U.S.” This compact was entered into at the urging of the Trump Administration.

Here’s why this is important, even if the human misery among these poor people is hard to watch: The move 10 miles further from the border will no doubt encourage more of them to either return home or accept the generous offer of asylum the Mexican government has been offering them for more than a month now. This “caravan” once numbered more than 10,000, so many already have done so, as Mexican officials confirmed early last week.

The other key factor is that, as it becomes clear that the United States of America is not going to allow these “caravans” to just walk right into our country and sign up for welfare benefits, it will become increasingly difficult for the leftist activists forming and funding them to find people in Honduras and other Central American nations willing to participate. The new willingness of the Mexican government to cooperate with U.S. efforts to halt this tide is a crucial development in all of this.

You will never see anyone at CNN, the New York Times, the Washington Post or any of the three dying broadcast networks admit this, but these latest developments demonstrate how extraordinarily effective the Trump Administration’s response to this “migrant caravan” issue has been.

It is such a joy to have a President who just goes to work every day and finds ways to get things done for the American people rather than cowering in fear at the prospect of getting a little bad press. To get to this point on this “caravan” issue, President Trump has had to overcome decades of horrible immigration policy decisions, the cacophony of inaccurate and outright fake reporting coming from the U.S. and international news media, ongoing resistance from some within his own Administration and a seemingly unending series of laughably unconstitutional decisions issued by an array of Obama-appointed federal judges.

Yet still he not only perseveres, but finds ways to prevail. That is #WINNING. Bigly.

 

Paris Burning Watch:

By the way, just so everyone understands, the reason why French Child President Emanuel Macron is raising that nation’s already confiscatory gasoline tax to even higher levels is not, as some have reported, an attempt to improve the government’s budget situation. What it really is is a fool’s effort to meet his country’s emissions reduction goals which France – like every nation on earth other than the United States of America – pledged to meet as a part of the Paris Climate Accords.

France’s emissions have actually increased since Macron committed his country to that socialist wealth redistribution scam, which is an embarrassment to him and his government. But hey, he’s not alone – not one single, solitary signatory country to the Paris Accords has met its pledged goals. Indeed, the country that has cut its emissions more than any nation on earth since that deal was signed is…wait for it…The United States of America.

Some of you probably tire of seeing me make this point, but it’s a key point to make:  This is just one more reason to be thrilled that Donald J. Trump won the 2016 presidential contest.  Because had the Pantsuit Princess prevailed that historic day, the streets of New York and Los Angeles would probably be burning along with those in Paris.

That is all.

James Comey Finds That Being a Teenage Drama Queen Ain’t All it’s Cracked up to be

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Tired of all this Winning yet? – President and First Lady Melania Trump hosted their first formal state dinner in honor of French President Emmanuel Macron last night, and it was by all accounts a rousing success.  Even better, not one single, solitary Washington, DC-based Democrat was invited to attend, a fact that the fake reporters and fake anchors at CNN whined about endlessly.  The lone Democrat in attendance was the execrable Governor of Louisiana, John Bel Edwards, I guess because of that whole Louisiana Purchase thing.  Governor Edwards, a trial lawyer who is using his office to destroy the Louisiana economy, behaving like a tin pot dictator in the process, is as good a representative of his party as anyone could be.

Hey, this whole book tour plan to take down President Trump idea just is not going the way we planned it! – Late yesterday, reports began to circulate that teenage drama queen ex-FBI Director James Comey is suddenly getting a little concerned that his plan to take down a sitting president by releasing his angst-filled diaries to the public and charging $95 a pop for people to listen to him talk about how The Man done him wrong is actually boomeranging on him and exposing him further than he already was to criminal prosecution.  So he’s gone out and hired himself a good criminal lawyer, a man who happens to be the godfather of Comey’s children, and a man whose name will be very familiar to some of you.

That man’s name?  Patrick Fitzgerald.

Yes, friends and countrymen, the self-same Patrick Fitzgerald who spent a couple of years during the George W. Bush administration as the last “special counsel” to conduct a witch hunt against a Republican presidency.  The same Patrick Fitzgerald whose only notable conviction out of that fiasco was the false conviction of Scooter Libby on a perjury trap, a conviction that President Trump reversed just days ago.  That guy right there is the freaking godfather of freaking James Comey’s freaking kids.

So, here’s what a bad actor our former FBI Director happens to be:  His best friend is the current special counsel and his kids’ godfather is the former special counsel and his other really good buddy is the guy who illegally appointed the current special counsel based solely on the content of Comey’s teen-angst diaries, and despite all of this, Comey still finds himself in the situation of likely facing an array of criminal charges for his actions while serving as FBI director and after he was fired.

Shortly after the release of Comey’s book I half-jokingly wrote that this whole book idea was actually just Comey’s version of Andrew McCabe’s GoFundMe effort to raise a legal defense fund.  Today I’m repeating that thought, and I’m not joking.  I actually now fully believe that that is what the book is all about.  And the scheme has been highly successful:  As of yesterday, Comey’s book had already sold 600,000 copies, proving yet again P.T. Barnum’s old adage there is indeed a sucker born every minute.

Speaking of Comey, he held a book-shilling event at the Newseum in Washington last night, and the crowd was very predictably made up mainly of fawning fake reporters eager to secure a moment of time and selfies with their hero.  Also in attendance was former DNC Chairman and Clinton toady Donna Brazile, who engaged in her own efforts to fix the 2016 election by feeding debate questions to the Pantsuit Princess in advance.  Birds of a feather…

If this surprises you, you need to pay closer attention. – And it gets even better with Comey.  Fox News reports that the Columbia Law Professor who served as Comey’s conduit for illegally leaking his classified-information-filled memos to the New York Times was actually serving as an unpaid agent with “special status” for the FBI.  I swear I do not make this stuff up.

I just love this passage from the Fox story:

Sources familiar with Richman’s status at the FBI told Fox News that he was assigned to “special projects” by Comey, and had a security clearance as well as badge access to the building. Richman’s status was the subject of a Memorandum of Understanding.

Yes, he was assigned “special projects” such as trying and failing to give Comey cover for illegally leaking classified information to the fake news media, an act for which Comey now feels the need to retain a very expensive lawyer.  That kind of “special project.”

It turns out that being a 6’8″ tall, 57 year-old teenage drama queen just ain’t all it’s cracked up to be.

Just another day in you couldn’t make this stuff up if you tried America.

That is all.
