John Lewis got a Political Rally; Herman Cain Will get a Funeral

The Swamp holds a political rally, er, ‘funeral’ for John Lewis. – Now, you can’t go to church with more than 10 of your fellow Americans, but those who infest the DC Swamp can fill a church, ignore social distancing, and hold a political rally for a dead corrupt congressman who in his youth was a genuine champion of civil rights.

Barack Hussein Obama His Own Self was there, preaching about the glories of mail-in ballots and the evils of having to have an ID when you go vote. San Fran Nan was there, half in the tank as always. Slick Willie was there, his visage increasingly that of a wraith from a horror film, which is the only way one would expect a long-time running buddy of Jeffrey Epstein to age. Hell, they even rolled out George W. Bush, who likely knew Mr. Lewis about as well as he knew me.

Because this funeral wasn’t a funeral at all: Like the “funerals” for John McCain and Aretha Franklin and George Floyd before it, this was just another chance to brainwash the public and take shots at the Bad Orange Man who isn’t part of their club. That’s all it was: a gaudy and disgusting spectacle that has become sadly typical of the Swamp in general and Democrats in particular.

See, they can all do this thing that you can’t because they’re your betters. Just like Dr. Fauci can go to a baseball game and yuck it up in the stands while he ignores his own dictates that have become such an oppressive part of your lives. They’re the elite; the segment of our society that gets to ignore all of the stuff they tell you you must do or be tossed in jail.

If you don’t believe me, just watch and learn. Herman Cain, a hero for conservatives everywhere and a truly great American, died yesterday. Let’s watch and see if he gets a nationally-televised funeral in a church filled with Swamplings. Let’s watch and see if he gets a send-off in a church filled with people, period.

What Cain has received already instead is derision from the corrupt news media. Pretty much every outlet knee-jerked to the narrative that “Cain, who refused to wear a mask, died after he was diagnosed with COVID-19 just 9 days after attending a rally for President Trump in Tulsa.” To the Associated Press, the New York Times, Politico, CNN, MSNBC and all of the TV networks, that is apparently the story of Herman Cain’s life in its entirety.

For those unaware, Herman Cain was born in 1945 in Atlanta, the son of a father who worked variously as a barber, a chauffeur and a janitor and a mother who worked as a maid. Hard working, great Americans. Cain himself followed his parents’ example to become a hard-working, great American in his own right.

After putting himself through college and receiving a degree in mathematics from Morehouse College, Cain served his country as a civilian systems analyst for the Department of the Navy. He then moved into the business world, where he rose to national prominence, ultimately becoming the CEO of Godfather’s Pizza and the Chairman of the National Restaurant Association.

He ran for the GOP presidential nomination in 2012, a nomination that ultimately went to the Swampling RINO Mitt Romney, with disastrous results. Cain was running a strong race until it was revealed he had had an extra-marital affair, something that would have been a badge of honor for any Democrat, but which gave the corrupt media an excuse to hound him out of the race.

There will be no nationally-televised funeral for Mr. Cain. His body will not lie in state at the nation’s capitol. He won’t have 4 or 5 separate memorial services over a span of 10 days, as did McCain and Floyd and Lewis. Al Sharpton won’t be invited to deliver an hour-long, hate-filled diatribe. The Clintons will not travel to his funeral from Chappaqua, nor the Bushes from their ranch in Texas. Obama His Own Self will not deliver a eulogy filled with messages about mail-in voting or voter ID.

Herman Cain won’t receive send-offs from those former presidents, but he did get this tribute from the current one:

Rest in Peace, Herman Cain. Rest in the knowledge that, because you are neither a Swampling nor, like George Floyd, a convenient false idol being used by Democrats to justify mass riots, your funeral will be an actual, dignified service, not a disgusting political rally officiated by the fading wraiths of the elite.

That is all.

Monday News Roundup: Hollywood Tough Guy Mob, RINO Stampede and a Municipal Suicide in Minn.

Today’s Campaign Update (Because the Campaign Never Ends)

“This the workplace, not a social justice seminar on campus.” – That’s what Arkansas Senator Tom Cotton said to Maria Bartiromo on Sunday Morning Futures yesterday. He was telling her what he would say to the pathetic, childish, snowflake staff at the New York Times after they had staged a hissy-fit rebellion against the fake newspaper’s editorial page editor for publishing Cotton’s op/ed piece last Monday.

The problem with Sen. Cotton’s argument there is that today’s staff at the Times is in fact a social justice seminar. It’s just that the university campuses on which they all were brainwashed to become SJW’s have been transferred into the NYTimes Building in Manhattan. The same transition has taken place at newspapers and other media outlets all over the country, the natural progression of college learnings coming into the workplace. Why would Mr. Cotton or anyone else expect any other outcome?

The nation’s news media used to merely be biased, with its editors and reporters slanting their reporting to fit their own world view while giving a basic level of lip service to impartiality and balance. Today’s media outlets are different: They are not merely biased in what they do, they are rigidly intolerant of any viewpoint but their own.

And so it was that later in the day on Sunday, the Times announced that it had allowed editorial page editor James Bennet to “resign,” corporate speak for they fired his ass. They fired him for no valid reason and simply because their childish, brainwashed staff demanded it.

Today’s national news media is not merely biased and corrupt and 98% fake, it is actively fascist in it nature, led by the newspaper of record itself. If you trust a word they have to say without independent verification, you are part of the problem.

*sigh* Ok, so, we’re back to de-funding the police again? – We told you on Friday how the Democrats in Minneapolis – including pitiful Mayor Jacob Frey – had suddenly backed off the whole “de-fund the police” thing after Morning Consult released a poll showing just 16% support for that idiotic, society-destroying move.

But the radical leftist goons who populate the Minneapolis city council just will not be diverted from their desire to make their city ultimately look like Warsaw after Hitler’s invasion of Poland. They want the whole thing to just burn to the ground, and the first step to creating utter chaos in the streets is removing all notion of public safety.

Thus it was that yesterday afternoon, a “veto-proof majority” on the Minneapolis city council sent out this notice:

Image

If you are a law-abiding citizen in Minneapolis and you have the means to do so, you should be packing up your things and getting the hell out of there before it is too late. This is municipal suicide, plain and simple, all brought to you by your stupid, mindless votes for Democrats.

Here is the carnival freak show that is in the process of destroying a great American city:

Remember their faces and names.

Run to the hills! Run to the woods! The Hollywood tough guy mob is coming for you! – I swear to you that I am not making this up. This is a real, actual tweet put up by drug-addled failed actor and even more failed comedian Tom Arnold on Sunday [Language warning]:

Yes, friends and neighbors and all you other Trump supporters out here in Flyover Country where Hollywood leftists fear to tread: Tom Arnold, a 61 year-old grown man, is gonna go borrow his daddy’s rifle and come after you. And even more fearful, he’s inviting 73 year-old Rob Reiner to go borrow a rifle from his 98 year-old daddy Carl Reiner so he can join in the assault on the nation’s heartland.

Seriously, how pathetic is it to a) be 61 years-old and publicly admit that, in order to arm yourself, you have to go borrow a gun from your nonagenarian daddy, and b) to be so pathetically lacking in self-awareness that you don’t realize how silly making that public admission makes you look to the rest of the world?

Will Ferrell Laughing GIF - Find & Share on GIPHY

You could never make these people up if they didn’t already exist. And if you still doubt me when I tell you that leftists hate you and want you dead, I really don’t know what else to tell you after this.

Speaking of ineffectual gangs, the RINOs are coming! The RINOs are coming! – The corrupt, fascist news media made a very big deal yesterday about the talk that Donald Trump will not be getting the votes in November of … wait for it … ex-President George W. Bush, Senator Mitt Romney and Colin Powell! Oh, noes! What will Trump do????

This non-story dominated the “news” all day long, despite the following facts:

  • None of these globalists supported Trump in 2016, either;
  • Romney voted to impeach the President, and we’re supposed to be surprised by this?; and
  • Colin Powell is a life-long Democrat who has never supported any Republican whose name was not Bush.

But here’s the thing: This is just the next step in the deep state propaganda campaign to throw everything against the wall at Trump and hope something sticks. This year alone, the impeachment failed to do the trick; the Wuhan Virus and its Democrat-driven shutdowns failed to do the trick; and this massive propaganda effort over the George Floyd murder is not doing the trick either.

So, yesterday’s obviously coordinated revelations among those three globalists was just the next page in the playbook. There will be something else today, and each and every day through November 3. And when Trump is re-elected, it will only become even more intense than it has been thus far.

This will never end as long as any non-deep state captive resides at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.

And this is the Deep State’s goal:

They want you afraid. They want you unsettled. They want you to be constantly on edge. Because a fearful and cowed public is much easier to control and far more likely to be willing to surrender its rights and freedoms in exchange for a fool’s notion of “security.” The result of that poll is obviously due to all the rioting, and once the rioting goes away, the number will go away with it.

But be fully aware that these riots are not the end game for the Democrat/Deep State/Corrupt media Axis of Disinformation. Something else will be coming soon, and it will probably be even worse.

Protect yourself.

Protect your family.

Stay alert to your surroundings.

Because the next thing will inevitably come.

These people will never stop until they are stopped.

That is all.

Trump’s Texas Primary Turnout Was Nothing Short of Amazing

Today’s Campaign Update (Because the Campaign Never Ends)

Yes, friends, Donald Trump did just fine in Texas on Super Tuesday, despite what Lt. Col. Allen West said. – I know this is going back in time a bit now, but readers continue to send me notes of concern about an “analysis” posted by Lt. Col. Allen West at his website after the Super Tuesday primary in Texas. In that piece, with the clickbait headline of “Super Tuesday Results From Texas: It Ain’t Pretty,” Mr. West contends that the President didn’t do well in the Lone Star State, based on vote count comparisons with the field of Democrats, which then still consisted of at least 8 contenders.

Here’s an excerpt from the piece:

Ever since I was a little boy, I have always enjoyed math. It was always a treat solving equations and figuring out solutions based upon formulas. Regardless of the common core math fallacy, there are objective truths, and they can be found in the study of mathematics. I suppose that was why being a US Army Field Artillery officer was the perfect fit for me, figuring out firing solutions to put “steel on target.” Back in the day, we had to do our computations, under time constraints, with tabular firing tables and slide rules . . . those were the days.

Numbers tell a story when you know what to analyze, and they provide insight and the ability to develop plans and strategies. Therefore, our campaign staff for Texas GOP Chairman decided to take a look at some numbers from the Super Tuesday primary election here in the Lone Star State. We believed the results would tell us a story, but the story we uncovered is not a good one.

I think it is time those living in a delusional fantasy land stop kidding themselves, and realize that, well, yes, “Houston, we have a problem.” Now, I am not an alarmist, certainly not one to panic, but I am a realist. And, it is time we get real about what is happening, politically, in Texas.

It is, sad to say, a repeat of what the progressive socialist left has been doing in other once strong, conservative states.

The data found below comes from the Texas Secretary of State website. You can also see the results by county by party. This is all open-source data that anyone can find, research, analyze, and assess. What we did was to look at the major population centers in Texas, by county, and several surrounding counties, to provide a picture of what happened in this primary election cycle.

By comparison, we looked at three rural (lower population) counties. This is the data we found posted as of Thursday, March 5th. Here is what we found, with “us” meaning Republicans:

STATEWIDE (Texas) – updated 
D – votes cast – 2,076,046
R – votes cast – 2,008,385
THEY OUT VOTED us by roughly 68K
 
Harris (Houston) – registered voters 2,385,906
D – 321,903 votes cast 13.49% turnout
R – 192,985 votes cast 8.09%  turnout
THEY OUT VOTED us by roughly 129k people 

The piece goes on and on, detailing the turnout in several other big counties in Texas, but you get the picture: Because the 8 Democrats pulled more total votes than a President running essentially unopposed for re-election, that means Trump is in trouble in the Red State of Texas.

No, not really.

Look, this is really kind of simple. Texans have a long history of cross-over voting in the GOP and Democrat primaries, especially in years in which an incumbent president is running for re-election and the other party has a contested primary going on. We have a couple of 21st century examples to look at in this regard.

First, there was 2012, when Barack Hussien Obama His Own Self was running unopposed for re-election. Here are the official vote totals in that primary election:

Democrats: 590,164

Republicans: 1,449,447

So, in a state in which the Republicans that year held a statewide advantage of about 10-15% of the vote, the contested GOP primary between Mitt Romney, Ron Paul, Rick Santorum, Newt Gingrich and an assortment of others out-polled Obama by roughly 160%, as hundreds of thousands of Democrats crossed over to vote in the GOP presidential primary, and thousands of others just stayed at home.

Then, there was 2004, when incumbent Texan George W. Bush was running for his re-election against a Democrat field consisting of John Kerry, John Edwards, Howard Dean and assorted other miscreants and grifters. Here are the official vote totals in that primary:

Democrats: 839,231

Republicans: 687,615

Here we see Democrats out-drawing the Republicans by about 33% in a state in which the GOP held an even larger overall advantage than in 2012. Why? Because thousands of people who would normally vote Republican either crossed over to participate in the contested Democrat primary or stayed at home due to lack of interest. That 33% margin for the contested Democrat race that year compares to an edge of just 1.7% in 2020. 

Now, let’s compare total turnout increase between 2020 and 2004, which is the most relevant case given that we have a GOP incumbent president in both years. Where the Democrat vote total was up by an impressive 150%, Trump’s total votes were right at 200% higher than the total Bush received in 2004. That is an amazing shift in just 16 years.

Col. West is right when he says that “we must be concerned about the progressive socialist expansion from these major population centers.” That’s nothing new in Texas, but its advance has been reducing the GOP advantage in the state over time. But let’s be honest: Overall, his post is a fright piece containing little if any real analysis designed mainly to attract clicks from readers.

Judging from our own readers here at the Campaign Update, West’s piece did have its desired effect of raising a great deal of concern from conservative Texas voters, and hey, that’s not a bad thing. But when you look at this year’s results and examine them through the prism of history and the dynamics of this year’s campaign, the ability of President Trump to accumulate more than 2 million votes in a basically uncontested primary in Texas this year is nothing short of amazing.

Texas is a Red state, and it is going to remain a Red state for the foreseeable future.

That is all.

The McCain Funeral: A Fitting Requiem for the Deep State

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Our long national nightmare is finally over. – Senator John McCain, who died on Saturday, August 25, was finally laid to rest on Sunday, September 2, after eight interminable days of honoring, memorializing and rank demagoguery, all of which the amazingly egotistical Senator planned for himself.  And so, the nation can heave a huge, collective sigh of relief.

I’ll get criticized for that opening paragraph, but I want those of you coming to bash me to remember that in 1963, our country suffered the assassination of a President.  That killing took place on Friday, November 22.  Following a hasty and ill-performed autopsy, the slain President’s body lay in state in the East Room of the White House throughout the day on November 23.  The body was carried by horse-drawn caisson up Pennsylvania Avenue early on the morning of November 24, where it lay in state throughout that day.

And on Monday, November 25, the body of John Fitzgerald Kennedy, the 35th President of the United States of America, was buried.  From beginning to end, the process took just three days, but then, Mr. Kennedy did not have the opportunity to do his own planning, given that he was taken down by the bullets of at least one assassin.

What we just went through as a nation over the past 8 days was unwarranted and unseemly, and everyone involved in making it happen should be embarrassed.  RIP, Senator McCain, at long last.

If you must continue mourning, here’s a new object of your desires. – The 200 year-old national museum of Brazil in Rio de Janeiro suffered a massive fire overnight, destroying most if not all of the 20 million precious historic items in its collection.  Items thought to be destroyed include the oldest human fossil found in Brazil, a fresco that survived the destruction of Pompeii, and a collection of Egyptian artifacts.  A real tragedy of epic proportions for history and the human race.

A fitting requiem for the Deep State. – Back to the McCain funeral one last time before I let the subject go forever.

Despite the unseemly nature of the “service” on Saturday, with two different former presidents and the daughter of the deceased using their time to bash the sitting President rather than memorialized the dead Senator, it occurs to me that it served as the perfect requiem for the Deep State establishment that is currently being dismantled and de-powered by President Trump.

There you had assembled in one place the three previous presidents who, along with elderly ex-President George H.W. Bush, had spent the 28 years prior to Trump’s inauguration “globalizing” America, marginalizing America’s blue-collar workers and de-emphasizing American greatness, all honoring a Senator who had played a leading role in carrying their water for more than 30 years.  You also had all the glitterati of the fake news media which has spent those same years brainwashing the American public to just lie back and take the policy-based pillaging of the U.S. economy and mortgaging of our childrens’ and grandchildrens’ future once again brainwashing you to disregard the realities of John McCain’s life and career.

At the same time, the President who is working to reverse the corrupt and destructive anti-American legacy of the previous 28 years was out playing golf because he had been dis-invited from the service by McCain and the McCain family.  Again, a perfect gesture of contempt on behalf of the Deep State.  The symbolism of the day was perfect:  The three ex-presidents looking old, tired and lacking in energy, their legislative bell cow lying in a coffin, the fake news media collectively spinning yet another tired narrative, with the one guy standing athwart them all out getting his exercise, preparing for another week of dismantling the Deep State they all worked so hard to institutionalize.

Meanwhile, the Democrat Party is radicalizing to the far, far left, and the Republican Party is systematically getting rid of its establishment wing through primary elections and retirements. The Deep State GOP/Democrat “uniparty” that McCain, Bush, Obama and Clinton worked so hard to construct over the last three decades is already greatly diminished, and stands in danger of going away entirely should Trump succeed in getting re-elected in 2020.

With our economy booming, Black and Hispanic unemployment at all-time record low levels, and tens of thousands of blue-collar and union jobs returning to America, the party coalitions of the past are being re-drawn in ways that will render the two Parties more readily distinguishable from one another.  While this process will be difficult and fraught with peril, it will over the next few years produce a result that is far better for the country.

Most people thought this weekend was about a funeral for a senator, but it was about so much more than that if you were paying attention.  The people at that service were mourning much more than the loss of just one man.

Just another day in the Deep State is dying America.

That is all.

John McCain’s Legacy: It’s Complicated

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Senator John McCain died on Saturday.  Whatever one thinks of his political career, his early service to the nation and the years of torture he endured and triumphed over as a result of it deserve to be remembered and honored.

May he Rest in Peace.

A complicated man with a complicated legacy. – We now, of course, will be treated to a week of our fake news media using the death of Mr. McCain as a tool with which to bash President Trump – whose relationship with McCain was extremely rocky – and support the Democrat narrative.  Because that’s what our fake news media does.

It started even before McCain passed, with the fake journalists at the Washington Post running a story bashing the President for not making a statement on McCain’s halting all medical treatment, even though McCain had repeatedly made it publicly clear he did not want any such statement from Mr. Trump, or for Trump to attend his funeral.  McCain’s wife and daughter had also repeated the senator’s feelings on the subject – thus, Trump was simply acceding to the family’s wishes.

The President did issue a statement expressing sympathy for the family via his Twitter feed:

Naturally, he was bashed by much of the fake news media even for that statement, with most fake journalists who hate every Republican – including McCain – pretending to take offense that it does not contain praise for the late Senator.

The reality is that the President can’t win in this situation, regardless of what he says or does.  Were he to issue a statement lavishing praise on McCain, the fake news media and Democrats would bash him for being hypocritical, given his frequent verbal battles with the Senator.  Were he to express his true feelings about the man, he’d be appropriately bashed for that, given the timing.  Were he to have remained silent, well, he was already being bashed for that within seconds of McCain’s passing.

Again, most of this situation is of the President’s own making.  His gratuitous taunts at McCain and his military service during the 2016 campaign were childish, inadvisable, reflected poorly on his own character, and set McCain up as the sympathetic figure in their relationship.  Mr. Trump simply has no graceful way to recover from all of that.

It’s fair to note that the same fake news media outlets whose fake journalists are praising John McCain today are the very same fake news media outlets and fake journalists who bashed McCain and ridiculed him and his running mate Sarah Palin mercilessly throughout the 2008 presidential contest, after the Republican Party had made him its nominee for the office.  As with everything else it does, the fake news media’s relationship with McCain was entirely situational.

Much of that was due to “the Maverick’s” own behavior.  After his bitter defeat in the 2000 nominating contest at the hands of George W. Bush, McCain spent the next 8 years seeking out opportunities to go on MSNBC or CNN to bash the President of his own political party.  His appearances with Chris Matthews on MSNBC’s “Hardball” program became so frequent and confrontational towards Bush that Rush Limbaugh took to referring to McCain as the “Senator from the News Media,” which, of course loved the fact that a prominent Republican senator was helping them do their own dirty work towards a Republican president.

Thus, McCain had cultivated a fabulous relationship with the fake journalists, a relationship that lasted until about 30 seconds after he had secured the GOP’s nomination for the presidency.  Then, he became the enemy, someone to be targeted and destroyed so that the nation could elect the media’s chosen candidate, Barack Obama.  Sadly, McCain, perhaps shocked at the betrayal by so many he had undoubtedly thought would treat him fairly, ran a completely feckless and moribund campaign that ended up sentencing the nation to 8 years of socialist “progress.”

But the Senator from the News Media made a comeback during the Obama years.  His appearances with Matthews and on the Sunday morning talk shows were less frequent, but most often focused on issues on which he was in “Maverick” mode, opposing his own party and supporting Obama’s agenda. Though he did not vote for the Obamacare bill in 2010, he did achieve one final moment of fake news media glory – poking President Trump in the nose in the process – in 2017  by casting the deciding vote that has allowed the failed healthcare law to persist to this day.  Matthews no doubt felt a tingle run up his leg as McCain, with a sneer on his face, raised his thumb down to cast a “no” vote on the repeal bill.

When asked a few years back by a reporter about how he would like to be remembered, McCain said simply “that I served my country.”

John McCain was a very complicated man who had an extremely complicated relationship with the Republican Party, the conservative movement, several presidents and the news media, much of which created negative outcomes during his political career.  Not surprisingly, he leaves behind a very complicated legacy.

But he did serve his country and suffered greatly for that service, and for that service he deserves to be honored.

That is all.

George W. Bush Comes Out Of Hiding And Shows Where His Real Loyalties Lie

Today’s Campaign Update 

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

  • God bless General John Kelly for doing what he did yesterday.  It was heart-wrenching watching him get up there and talk about the death of his own son, and an utter disgrace that he had to do it.  It was an act of supreme loyalty for him to go into that room filled with fake journalist snakes and defend his President.  General Kelly has spent his entire adult life in the valiant service of his country, and yesterday’s service should never be forgotten by anyone who loves America.
  • A Bush Finds His Voice – For eight long years, from January 20, 2009 through January 20, 2017, supporters of former President George W. Bush were saddened and frustrated as Mr. Bush sat idly by while his successor in office and his own supporters trashed Bush’s policies, his reputation and his personality on pretty much a daily basis.  For those eight long years, Mr. Bush appeared happy and very much unperturbed as his successor worked overtime to tear down this country’s institutions brick by brick, to foment racial divisions wherever possible, acted in an utterly lawless manner whenever it suited his desires and needs, and, as we are finding out this week, allowed his Secretary of State and Attorney General to literally sell the country’s national security interests to Russia.
  • Mr. Bush seemed to be footloose and fancy free as his successor sat fecklessly by and allowed ISIS  to grow and take over vast swaths of Iraq and Syria, as terrorist attacks in the U.S. and throughout Western Europe multiplied in almost a geometric progression, as North Korea marched steadily towards possessing an intercontinental nuclear capability.
  • During all that time and through all that corruption and destruction of American society, Mr. Bush sat at his Crawford, Texas ranch like a deaf mute, rarely seen in public other than at events at his presidential library on the SMU campus, or other events at which he was paling around with his “Brother from another Mother”, Bill Clinton.  Nothing, no insult, no being blamed by his successor for his own failures, no corruption of government or society by said successor could break Mr. Bush out of his self-imposed silence.
  • It is only this week that Mr. Bush has suddenly found his voice.  As a duly-elected President of his own political party is going about systematically deconstructing the legacy of Mr. Bush’s successor, trying to resolve the crises with Iran and North Korea that both Mr. Bush and his successor punted down the road, dealing with major natural disasters in three states and Puerto Rico, and under a daily withering assault by our fake national news media, Mr. Bush chose this moment to come out of hiding and make a speech criticizing another president.  Unfortunately, and to his undying disgrace, Mr. Bush chose to criticize not his successor and all the damage he perpetrated on our country, but the current President, Donald Trump.
  • In making that speech yesterday, conveniently timed to distract attention from the exploding Russian Uranium/bribery scandal that took place in the first two years of the Obama Administration, the former President removed all doubt about where his real loyalties lie.  Mr. Bush is a Bush after all, and his loyalties are with the establishment, the ruling elite, the globalists who insist we place international interests above the interests of American citizens, and the DC Swamp creatures who continue to work to ensure such outcomes.  He’s just another Bush, like his Dad, like Jeb! and all the other Bushes who are creatures of the ruling elite.  His outlook and philosophy differ from those of the Clintons and the Obamas only by small degrees.
  • By labeling President Trump’s voters as bigots and nativists, Mr. Bush showed an elite’s disdain for the very same voters who got him elected in 2000 and 2004.  By laying off the blame for our current social strife entirely on President Trump, Mr. Bush demonstrated support for the very leftists who are truly responsible for it all. By refusing to condemn the Democrat-invented “resistance”, Mr. Bush showed his preference for the true fascists among us.
  • I’ll never regret supporting George W. Bush in 2000 and 2004, because he was definitely the lesser of two evils in those elections.  But Thursday’s disgracefully timed and delivered speech removed any remaining doubt that he was in fact an evil, and that made it a sad day indeed.

Just another day in betrayed Bush voters America.

That is all.

At Long Last, Senator Schumer, Have You No Shame?

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

  • The Wall Street Journal ran a story yesterday that didn’t have anything to do with Donald Trump Jr.  Yes, I swear it’s true, hard as that is to believe amid the fake news media feeding frenzy over its latest fake scandal.  The WSJ story deserves our attention because it puts the lie to the media narrative that the reason why the Trump Administration has had so few people confirmed to appointed positions is the slowness of their making the nominations, not obstruction by Chuck Schumer and his fellow Democrat blockaders.  Here’s the key passage:

“According to the Partnership for Public Service, as of June 28 Mr. Trump had nominated 178 appointees but the Senate had confirmed only 46. Barack Obama had 183 nominees confirmed by that date in his first term, and George W. Bush 130.

The White House has understandably begun to make a public issue of the delays, and Minority Leader Chuck Schumer says it “has only itself to blame.” But a press release Mr. Schumer sent out Monday made the White House case, showing that the Senate has received 242 nominations but confirmed only 50 through June 30. Democrats are now the problem.”

  • So, next time some nitwit tells you that the dearth of confirmed political appointees “is all Trump’s fault!!!!!” (they always scream, don’t they?), ask them politely to quit lying to you.
  • It’s important to know that Schumer is able to accomplish this level of obstruction because he is the first Senate Minority Leader in history to simply abandon all concern for the well-being of the country and order his troops to demand cloture votes for each and every nominee presented to the Senate.  This of course comes only after Democrat Senators have used up all delaying tactics within the committee process, which can go on for months, and means that, when a nomination comes to the floor for a vote, there is a minimum 2 day delay before the matter can come up, and then a minimum of 30 hours for floor debate before the cloture vote to end debate can be held.  These are the senate rules as they exist today.  Given that as of Monday, the Senate only had 34 session days remaining on its calendar for the entire year, you can see the problem this represents.
  • But wait, there’s more!  It gets even more absurd for judicial nominees, where Senate Democrats have held up 21 of the 23 judges nominated by President Trump thus far.  Current rules for the Judiciary Committee – through which all judicial nominees must pass – include the so-called “blue card” rule.  This idiotic relic of a more collegial past, in which both political parties actually gave a damn about the country, forces Judiciary to wait until each nominee has received “blue cards” of approval from both senators who represent the state in which the judge would serve.
  • Here’s the thing we all must understand:  The Democrat Party does not give a damn about the future of this country.  The Party as a whole quit caring about national security half a century ago, it no longer cares about the ability of the executive branch to function properly, and it certainly doesn’t care about the ability of the judicial branch to adjudicate justice.  This is, after all, the political party that worked feverishly in Virginia last year to ensure convicted felons were able to vote in the November elections – the Democrats in fact view felons and violent criminals as a natural Democrat voter bloc.  And don’t even think about arguing that point with me – it is manifestly true.
  • Several months ago, I wrote a piece that discussed the fact that our constitutional system of government is to a large extent based on the assumption that voters would elect people to office who actually have a sense of shame.  The assumption was that a free, independent press protected by the First Amendment would serve as the public’s watchdog and shame bad actors into better behavior by exposing their abuses.  Barack Obama was able to engage in all sorts of shameful, often illegal behavior in office because he had no sense of shame, and the fake news media refused to report on his abuses.  Hillary Clinton was able to stay out of prison because James Comey and Loretta Lynch have no sense of shame, and the fake news media work feverishly to cover up her illegal behavior.
  • By the same token, Chuck Schumer and the Senate Democrats have no sense of shame, no concern for the country, and know the fake news media will never focus on their own abuses.  The occasional report in the WSJ is welcome, but will do nothing to force the Democrats to do what’s best for the country.
  • The proper staffing and functioning of the executive and judicial branches of the federal government have always assumed that members of both political parties in the Senate would place the needs of country above the crass interests of party.  Given that Democrats are obviously no longer willing to do that, the time has come for the GOP majority in the Senate to put an end to rules that are relics of a past that is long gone and will never return.

Just another day in Democrats have no shame America.

That is all.

Today’s Campaign Update (Because The Campaign Never Ends) – 4.9.2017

  • All of the City of Dallas’s 156 emergency warning sirens were hacked and activated dozens of times Friday evening, setting off near-panic among some of the city’s citizens.  Not one of the local network affiliate TV stations, whose weather people regularly interrupt prime time programming whenever three or four drops of rain start to fall, chose to break into their prime time programming to inform their viewers that there was nothing to worry about.  Indeed, the only information the public received before Saturday morning on the situation came from a Tweet from the local FBI office.  Your fake news media in action.
  • In a predictably softball interview with the fake NY Times reporter Nicholas Kristoff this week, The Most Corrupt Woman in America predictably blamed a whole bunch of other people for her loss last November.  Taking a share of the blame were our bi-polar FBI Director, James Comey; WikiLeaks; the “weaponization of information”, whatever that means; Bernie Sanders; and of course, the Democrats’ favorite boogeyman, the RUSSIANS!!!!!!!!!  She of course did not blame her incompetent campaign manager John Podesta, who basically made his email account public by falling for an amateurish phishing email.  Nor did she blame the outrageous behavior of supporting celebrities like Lena Dunham, Miley Cyrus, Samuel L, Jackson, Whoopi Goldberg, Alec Baldwin and Amy Schumer, who all worked very hard to alienate middle America’s blue collar workers.  And of course she did not blame herself, her own incompetence, her abject lack of appeal as a candidate, her horrible speaking style, her stupid tactical decisions, her illegal email activities, and her pathological lying.  But of course, that last part explains everything, doesn’t it?
  • Hey, remember Friday, when Swedish officials predictably announced (it’s part of the playbook now) that the Islamic terrorist who drove his truck through a crowd and murdered four people was a “lone wolf”?  Yeah, that was a lie.  They arrested another guy yesterday.  Didn’t publicize it, hoping no one will notice.  This is how law enforcement all over the free world deals with Islamic terrorism now – lies and wishful thinking.  That is a recipe for cultural suicide.
  • Former President George W. Bush wrote an op-ed in the Washington Post on Friday, appealing to President Trump to not cut funding to the African AIDS assistance program that he initiated while president.  No word why the former president felt the need to make his appeal via the fake news media, when he surely had a phone available to him.
  • Tired of winning yet?  ICE officials announced a 250% increase in arrests of illegal aliens with violent criminal records, apprehending 368 in a single week (including 153 in Texas), with a focus on “members of the violent MS-13 gang and illegals charged with sex crimes against kids.”  Progressives all over the nation were horrified by this news.  Which is why you  should never even think about becoming a progressive.
  • Meanwhile, President Trump’s summit meeting with Chinese leader Xi went extremely well, with the U.S. President and first family receiving high praise in the Chinese media.  Progressives everywhere are horrified by this news as well.

Just another day in Never Become a Progressive America.

That is all.
