You Are a Child, Robert Francis O’Rourke

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

Give him credit, the dude knows how to get attention. – Irish Bob O’Rourke has always been an attention-seeker, and he’s always been good at it.

From his college career as a furry drunk-driving punk rocker and inept burglar, to his do-nothing terms in congress, to his failed challenge of Ted Cruz in 2018 to his rumblin’ stumblin’ bumblin’ three-time-re-booted presidential campaign, Irish Bob has always been able to gain the attention of an eager fake news media, the public and his opponents. The problem for him, his long-suffering parents and now his political party has been that his efforts to grab attention seem to pretty much always end in failure, often in disaster.

The past few days have provided a prime example of O’Rourke getting an unwarranted level of attention that will almost certainly redound disastrously for the Democrat Party. Think about it: Here is a guy who is barely averaging 2% in the national polling who yet again became the major topic of conversation on the Sunday morning talk shows. It all started last Thursday during the latest Democrat debate when O’Rourke uttered the threat, “Hell, yes we are going to take your AR-15, your AK-47.”

Call it the threat heard round the world. In making that threat, that “we” are coming for your guns, and having not one single other person on that stage rebut him, O’Rourke overtly committed not only himself but all the other contenders for the Democrat Party’s presidential nomination to doing what every gun owner in America has always known the leftists ultimately want to do, which is coming to get our guns.

That, after all, is the most important step in the creation of a fascist state, which is something the Democrat Party has been working diligently towards for the last century now. Fascist thuggery requires a docile, disarmed public, and Democrats from Franklin Roosevelt to George McGovern to Dianne Feinstein to Barack Obama to Bernie Sanders have been hinting around about gun confiscation for decades now, while always being careful to couch it in deceptive talking points designed to convince voters that it’s just baby steps, that they’re not coming for ALL of your guns and besides, it’s all for your own good.

But not Irish Bob. Irish Bob needed attention to try to re-re-re-re-boot his flailing campaign one more time, so he just blurted it out, right there on live national television. O’Rourke made a modest effort to sort of walk back his remarks on Sunday, but too late: The jack-booted cat is out of the bag now, and there’s no going back.

Delaware Senator Chris Coons gets it: “I’m a gun owner,” Coons said Friday in an interview on CNN. “My sons and I have gone skeet shooting and hunting and, frankly, I don’t think having our presidential candidates, like Congressman O’Rourke did, say that we’re going to try and take people’s guns against their will is a wise either policy or political move. That that clip will be played for years at Second Amendment rallies with organizations that try to scare people by saying Democrats are coming for your guns.”

Yes, it will. Because that’s what the Democrats ultimately will be doing if they ever regain full power in Washington.

Preacher Pete Buttigieg echoed Coons’s comments on CNN later on Sunday afternoon. You can bet other Democrats confronted with Irish Bob’s attention-seeking comments will be doing the same as their Party desperately attempts to crawfish its way back under cover of its deceptive talking points this week.

Irish Bob’s real problem is that he is still a child emotionally. He was probably largely ignored by his parents as a toddler, and figured out he could get their attention by throwing fits. Even in his mid-40s, he is still that 10 year-old brat at the beach who sits and watches as three other kids spend an hour carefully building a sand castle and then rushes in to kick it down just as they’re about to be finished.

In the wake of the tragic El Paso shootings in August, the shameless opportunist has now tried both approaches to bring attention onto himself. First, he decided the best way to exploit the tragedy was to be the loudest Democrat blaming it all on President Donald Trump. He figured the best way to be the focus of attention would be to drop a lot of F-Bombs while branding the President as a “white supremacist.”

When that third re-booting of his campaign by tossing a toddler fit didn’t work out for him amidst the cacophony of fellow Democrats deploying the same strategy, he realized he had to re-group. That was when he landed on the strategy of kicking down the gun confiscation sand castle his Party has spent a century constructing.

And just like that, with one nationally-televised kick of Irish Bob’s boot, that sand castle of deception has been washed away with the tide.

GOP Congressman Briscoe Cain got it right on Friday when he told O’Rourke, “You are a child, Robert Francis.”

Emotionally, that is absolutely true. But once again, Irish Bob the child got his attention, and that’s all that matters to him.

That is all.

We Can’t Put Democrat Judges in Charge of Enforcing Red Flag Laws

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

Oh, noes, not Stacey!!!! – Because I know all you readers have been sitting around fretting, wondering when, oh, when will the stellar, awesome, brilliant, and indeed heroic Stacey Abrams jump into this race for the Democrat Party’s presidential nomination, I am oh, so sad to report the following news: She ain’t running.

Yesterday, the insufferable loooooooooser from Georgia, in whom Democrat Party leaders invested gobs of time, energy and money, trying desperately to build her into a national thing, announced that, after long contemplation of whether or not she wanted to get into another race she would be bound to lose, she did what fellow looooooooooser Irish Bob O’Rourke didn’t have the sense to do and decided to go do something else she might actually be good at doing. (Yeah, I know that was a run-on sentence, but I sure had fun writing it.)

Instead, Ms. Abrams has decided to apply her boundless energy for whining to the endeavor she loves most: Encouraging voter fraud. Oh, yeah, I know she actually said that she’s going to lead some organization whose goal is to fight “voter suppression,” but that’s just Democrat code for making sure all the dead and illegal aliens get to vote, too.

“My job is to be the voice to those who do not believe they are heard,” Abrams told a chanting audience. Dead people do have a hard time being heard, that’s for sure.

Hey, maybe she can get Irish Bob to help her run this enterprise, but not until after he has dropped out of the presidential race, come back to Texas and lost another race for the senate against John Cornyn. Which is pretty much an inevitability at this point, now that the editorial board at the Houston Chronicle, one of his major cheerleading squads during his failed attempt to unseat Ted Cruz, has set the stage for that to happen.

These Democrats are so darn transparent once you understand how they really think.

Ok, so Chris Cuomo can’t have guns, then? – Quote yesterday from President Donald Trump: “There’s nobody more pro-Second Amendment than Donald Trump, but I don’t want guns in the hands of a lunatic or manic.”

That gets me to this proposal running around for congress to pass a “red flag law” in the wake of the mass shootings in El Paso and Dayton. All you need to know about how a red flag law would work is this sub-head from an August 6 article published about them in the Democrat Party propaganda sheet New York Times:

“Hoping to prevent more mass shootings, some states have tried empowering courts to take guns away from potentially dangerous people.”

The emphasis added there is mine, because that’s the salient point here that tells anyone whose political views are to the right of Ho Chi Minh that we simply cannot and must not have a national red flag law in the United States of America in the post- Barack Obama world. Anyone who has been paying even a modicum of attention to what has been taking place in our courts over the last 3 years knows that Obama packed the federal judiciary with hundreds of Manchurian Candidate judges who are willing to issue any decision, no matter how contrary it might be to the constitution, that will advance the leftist cause in our country.

We have had so many examples of Obama judges issuing bald-faced fraudulent decisions and getting smacked down by the Supreme Court in recent years that they are almost not even newsworthy anymore, which was exactly the plan to begin with. Leaving the determination of which citizens might be a danger to others should they obtain a firearm up to these particular judges is simply a recipe for willy-nilly gun confiscation anytime some leftwing activist group wants them confiscated. We’d ultimately end up in a situation in which you could have your guns taken away if you get suspended on Facebook or post a Tweet that some pimple-faced slob out in Silicon Valley working as a Twitter monitor finds objectionable.

Some of you might still, after all this time and all of these anti-Constitutional judicial decisions think I’m being ridiculous, and that’s fine. But take a look at the campaign the Democrats and their media toadies have been pushing since those latest mass shootings, which is to convince the American public not only that the President of the United States is a “white supremacist” – and thus, a danger to society – but anyone who supports him is also a “white supremacist.”

This is not me being an alarmist – this is all utterly transparent and predictable.

The other thing to remember is that, sooner or later, the Democrats are going to elect another president of their own, and that someone will look and sound a lot like one of those nutcases you have seen on your TV screen for the last six months. Do you really want to put a federal law on the books that would allow one of those lunatics and the fellow lunatics they would appoint to have discretion over who should and should not be able to arm and defend themselves in this society?

Sorry, no. Hard, hard pass.

That is all.

Robert Mueller’s Big Bag of Nothing

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Those gun-banning Parkland high school kids have had a major impact on U.S. public opinion after all.  It turns out that they’ve convinced a record number of Americans it’s time to go out and buy a…wait for it…new gun!

Yep, most certainly as a direct result of the anti-gun posing by the insipid David Hogg and his fellow transparent back pack-carrying students – and of course, the media frenzy that surrounded them – gun sales set new records in the U.S. during the month of March.  The National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS) recorded an all-time high 2.7 million gun sales in March, during the same weeks in which CNN was filling its 24-hour coverage with panel after panel of anti-gun zealots and a couple hundred thousand high school kids and professional protesters marched on Washington demanding a ban on gun sales.

The fake news media would have you all believe there is tremendous support for repealing the 2nd Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.  The official government statistics would indicate otherwise.  Go figure.

A crazy woman named Nasim Najafi Aghdam shot up YouTube headquarters in San Bruno, CA on Tuesday, apparently because the videos she posted on that social media outlet had been falling in popularity.  Her videos were a mix of virulent animal rights and vegan eating screeds, along with what some are describing as “bizarre” musical parodies.

In other words, she was an animal-hugging, quinoa-eating activist who wanted to be Weird Al Yankovic when she grew up. Hard to imagine why that particular combination would not appeal to every American, right?  Ok, maybe not.

Anyway, the odd thing about the narrative we’re receiving from law enforcement on this incident thus far is that Ms. Aghdam – who committed suicide after injuring three YouTube employees –  was actually questioned by local police in the wee hours of the morning after her family had reported her to be missing.  According to the police report, Ms. Agham’s father actually informed the police that she might be going to the YouTube headquarters because she “hated” the company.

But when police came upon her as she was sleeping in her car near the YouTube campus, they simply questioned her and sent her along her merry way, and then called the father to tell him that all was well, nothing to see here.  Oops.

So, as with so many other recent mass shooting incidents, we have a situation in which law enforcement had been made aware of the shooter and did nothing to prevent the crime from happening.  What an incredibly disturbing pattern.

Things are getting a little weird over at MSNBC.  Ok, make that even more weird than they always have been at the leftwing fake news network.

Former Bush Administration pretend-conservative Nicole Wallace, who now barely even pretends to be sort of conservative anymore in her role as fake news host, was startled on air when, in the middle of an interview about the situation in San Bruno, she jumped when she thought she had heard gunfire in the studio.  It turned out that someone in the control room had opened a can of Coke.  Holy cow.  I swear I don’t make this stuff up.  

Meanwhile, in Trump/Russia Collusion fantasyland… – The fake news media will try to spin this as bad news, but Special Counsel Robert Mueller actually gave President Trump’s lawyers very good news in a recent briefing on his investigation.  The Chicago Tribune reports that Mueller informed Trump’s legal team that the President “remains under investigation” but “does not consider him a criminal target” at this point.

Mueller further said that he is “preparing a report about the president’s actions while in office and potential obstruction of justice”, and still wants to interview Mr. Trump before completing that report.  Taken all together, what all of this means is that, 9 months into his investigation, Mr. Mueller is holding the same big bag of nothing related to the President that he has held since last summer.  He is desperate to “interview” Mr. Trump in the hopes of catching him in some sort of inconsistent answer that he can then form into a process crime with which to charge the President.

Because let’s be honest here:  Process crimes – lying to the FBI, etc. – is all Mueller has brought against any American in this endless, abusive investigation.  Why?  Because there was no collusion with Russia by any Trump people – though we now know there was tons by the Clinton Campaign and the DNC – and Mueller’s efforts to muster up an obstruction of justice charge depend entirely on claims made by proven liars like James Comey and Andrew McCabe.

If Mueller were the honest and forthright individual the fake news media keeps claiming he is, he’d write his report, fold up his tent, and take the patriotic action of going home.  No one should expect that to happen anytime soon.

Just another day in Trump/Russia collusion fantasy America.

That is all.

President Trump is Laying the Groundwork for Executive Action on the Border Situation

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

There is just no good reason why any average citizen needs to own g…er…knives? – The murder rate in London surpassed that of New York City for the first time ever in February, as Islamic-driven knife killings continue to grow in the gun-banning metropolis.  As of this writing, no one at CNN had asked David Hogg for his views on London’s pressing need to ban knives.  But it seems to be just a matter of time.

Speaking of the ever-more annoying Mr. Hogg, he’s gonna have some ‘splainin’ to do with his CNN masters next time he goes in for an interview.  That’s because on Sunday he made the mistake of posing for a photo with Javier Manjarres, a Republican congressional candidate who is challenging Democrat incumbent Ted Deutch.

As if the sin of paling around with a – gasp! – Republican wasn’t damning enough in the eyes of everyone at the fakest of all fake news outlets, Hogg’s error was made even more unforgivable by the fact that Manjarres was wearing a t-shirt that depicts President Donald Trump urinating on the CNN logo (see below).  Oh, my, CNN might have to go find itself another gun-banning teenager to exploit.

Headlines we never saw during the Obama years… – The Wall Street Journal reports that the big economic issue facing Iowa and much of the rest of the American midwest is that there are too many jobs and not enough workers to fill them.

According to the Journal:

“It is a problem playing out in many parts of the Midwest, a region with lower unemployment and higher job-opening rates than the rest of the country. Employers, especially in more rural areas, are finding that there are just too few workers. That upends a long-running view in Washington, D.C., and many state capitals, where policy makers often say the unemployed simply lack the skills to get hired.”

Should the pace of economic growth and job creation experienced in the 14 months of the Trump Administration continue for another 14 months, this midwest-based “problem” will inevitably spread to other parts of the country.  This is an almost inevitable outcome as the overall economy approaches full employment.

Of course, there will be exceptions to the rule, isolated pockets of the country where chronic unemployment levels will persist and people will remain addicted to the public dole.  Those pockets of economic under-performance are easy to predict:  They go by names like Chicago, Washington, DC, Baltimore, Detroit, Los Angeles, San Francisco, New Orleans, Philadelphia and other big cities that have been governed by Democrats for decades.  It’s the way Democrat politicians like it to be.

DACA is dead, and NAFTA could be next, if Mexican officials don’t act to halt the caravan of more than 1200 Central American nationals that has been making its way through their country unimpeded over the last few days.  At least, that’s what President Trump said on his Twitter feed yesterday and early this morning, and as we have seen so many times in the past, the President doesn’t just toss stuff like this out there for no good reason.

The tweet storm began on Sunday morning, with these two Presidential messages:

“Border Patrol Agents are not allowed to properly do their job at the Border because of ridiculous liberal (Democrat) laws like Catch & Release. Getting more dangerous. “Caravans” coming. Republicans must go to Nuclear Option to pass tough laws NOW. NO MORE DACA DEAL!”

and..

“Mexico is doing very little, if not NOTHING, at stopping people from flowing into Mexico through their Southern Border, and then into the U.S. They laugh at our dumb immigration laws. They must stop the big drug and people flows, or I will stop their cash cow, NAFTA. NEED WALL!”

Mr. Trump expanded on this theme with three more tweets this morning, concluding with:

“DACA is dead because the Democrats didn’t care or act, and now everyone wants to get onto the DACA bandwagon… No longer works. Must build Wall and secure our borders with proper Border legislation. Democrats want No Borders, hence drugs and crime!”

So, after 7 months of publicly holding out hope that the cynical Democrats might want to make a deal in which DACA gets extended in exchange for wall funding and other immigration reforms, the President has finally figured out that the Dems never had any intention of making any such deal, preferring instead to keep the DACA kids in limbo so they can exploit the issue in the November midterm elections.  Ok, he knew that all along, but it’s good to see him abandoning all pretense, and calling things as they really are.

The problem the President has here is that there is literally no reason at all to expect the Senate Republicans to “go nuclear” or even lift a finger at all in an effort to change the immigration laws.  At least half of the GOP caucus in the senate favors chain migration and the insane “diversity lottery” system in their eagerness to attract campaign money from the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.

Sadly, it is up to the President alone to stop the ongoing invasion coming across our southern border.  If the President wants to build his long-promised wall, he’ll have to find a way to get it done using his emergency powers and the defense budget, as we discussed last week.  Expecting Paul Ryan and Mitch McConnell to do anything about it is just a waste of time and energy.

Given the President’s past use of his Twitter feed as a prelude to taking action, we should expect him to take some form of emergency executive action to address the border situation in the coming days.

Just another day in the southern invasion continues and congress doesn’t care America.

That is all.

Tuesday Was a Really Bad Day for Gun-Banning Liberals

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Tired of all this Winning yet? – Former leftwing Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens – otherwise known as Nixon’s Folly – suggested in a NYTimes op-ed on Tuesday that the right to keep and bear arms is a “relic of the 18th century” and that the time has come to repeal the 2nd Amendment to the Constitution.  Liberals all over America who have spent the last month claiming in their anti-gun frenzy since the school shootings in Parkland, Florida are not about repealing the 2nd Amendment nodded in agreement as they read Stevens’ remarks.

Stevens’ comments are wholly un-helpful to either side in the debate over guns, since the reality on the ground is that it is simply not possible to put together the 2/3rds majorities in both houses of congress and 3/4ths of the 50 states that would be required to achieve the repeal of a constitutional amendment.  But then, few things Stevens has done in his entire adult life have been helpful to this country.

Washington Post writer Aaron Blake thinks Stevens’ op-ed was most un-helpful to Democrats, calling it “supremely un-helpful”, and saying that “One of the biggest threats to the recovery of the Democratic Party these days is overreach.”  Well, hell, when has the Democrat Party ever not over-reached?  Hard to remember, but I’m sure there must have been some past example.  And on the gun debate, the Party’s obvious desire has always been to ultimately disarm the public.  At least Stevens was being honest about it, in direct contrast to Democrat politicians.

But Blake’s piece gets even better:  “The [Stevens op-ed] might as well be considered an in-kind contribution to the National Rifle Association, to Republicans’ efforts to keep the House and Senate in 2018, and to President Trump’s 2020 reelection bid. In one fell swoop, Stevens has lent credence to the talking point that the left really just wants to get rid of gun ownership and reasserted the need for gun-rights supporters to prevent his ilk from ever being appointed again (with the most obvious answer being: Vote Republican).”  Blah-blah-blah, talkingpoint, talkingpoint, talkingpoint.  Ok, it really didn’t get better after all.

So, ex-justice Stevens turns out to be an equal-opportunity irritant:  he’s managed to tick off everyone on both sides of the gun debate.  It seems pretty clear he’d do best to just slink back off into the obscurity in which he’s been living since retiring his Supreme Court seat and leave the country to deal with the issue without his “help”.

Speaking of wholly un-helpful liberals who’d do best to remain in obscurity, former President Jimmy Carter was also in the news on Tuesday.  In an interview with USA Today, Carter called President Donald Trump’s decision to bring in John Bolton as his new National Security Advisor a “disaster for our country.”  And hey, Jimmy Carter is a guy who knows disasters for our country, having created so many of them himself over the last 42 years.

No one has any idea why Carter chose now to reappear on the public stage after a long period of relative quiet, but the one-term presidential failure is probably sitting there looking at all the septuagenarians and octogenarians lining up to run for the Democrat nomination in 2020 thinking, “shoot, I’m only 93, why not me?”

If you’re keeping score at home, Carter’s outburst now leaves the hapless Democrat Party with the current roster of prominent spokesmen:

  • Nation of Islam bigot Louis Farrakhan;
  • 93 year-old ex-President Jimmy Carter;
  • 18 year-old high school demagogue David Hogg;
  • 78 year-old budding pugilist Joe Biden;
  • Fake Indian Senator Elizabeth Warren;
  • Communist Senator Bernie Sanders.

This is not a lineup destined for the political dominance the Democrats desire.

Hey, about those “in-kind contributions” to the NRA that Aaron Blake talked about… – All the furor over gun control has had a very predictable result over at the NRA:  the organization is raising tons of new money.  The Washington Free Beacon reports that the NRA PAC’s collections in February came in at 300 percent above its collections in January.  No doubt March’s contributions to the organization will be even higher.

This money is not coming in from a handful of large contributors, either:  Fully 88 percent of the funds came in from individuals giving less than $200 each.  That’s a lot of folks.  Do the math.

Bottom line, Tuesday was a really, really bad day for Democrats on the issue of gun confiscation.

Just another day in Democrats want to take your guns America.

That is all.

In Trump World, a Cabinet Appointment is a Temp Job

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Spoiled high school children across the country skipped class on Wednesday to go pretend to know something about guns and gun control policy.  It was, like, totally rad, and of course Democrat politicians around the country exploited the kids’ acting out to make political points.  San Fran Nan, Chuck Schumer and the execrable New York Governor Andrew Cuomo all made anti-gun speeches to groups of students while surrounded by security guards armed with…wait for it…you know what’s coming…guns!  None of the kids noticed the irony in that, mainly because pretty much none of them know what irony is, but they did get to ditch chem lab or PE, so they were all happy.

Tired of all this Winning yet? – President Donald Trump announced yesterday that he will bring in economist and long-time CNBC news host Larry Kudlow to replace Gary Cohn as his chief economic advisor.  Kudlow was also an economic advisor to Ronald Reagan, and, with the exception of import tariffs, is a strong supporter of the Trump economic agenda, and the Trump “put America first” presidency in general.  He will be a huge upgrade over Cohn, a liberal globalist who would have been far more in his natural habitat working in a Clinton administration.  Thank God he didn’t get the chance.

With the President having already replaced Rex Tillerson and Gary Cohn this week, it is obvious he is intent on re-molding his cabinet into a group that is more on-board with his agenda rather than their own.  This is now leading to rumor-mongering among the fake journalist set.  Rumors are now flying that Mr. Trump will also replace Attorney General Jeff Sessions and National Security Advisor H.R. McMaster before the week is out.

The problem with those rumors is that they are coming from Vanity Fair, the NYTimes’ Clinton flunky Maggie Haberman and CNN’s pathetic Jim Acosta, several of the fakest fake news sources in business today.  So there is maybe a 50/50 chance there is anything to them.

The rumor about McMaster does seem most credible.  The General is a pure globalist, a liberal who was hired very quickly after the Mike Flynn firing last February, and is very likely one of the main sources of ongoing leaks coming from the White House.  McMaster is the clown who was responsible for extending the top secret clearances of Susan Rice and other Obama-era skunks long after they had left office, much to the chagrin of the President.

Former U.N. Ambassador in the Bush Administration John Bolton is the most likely replacement for McMaster.  The problem with Bolton is that he is a war-mongering neo-con, but at least there would be no doubt about where his loyalties lay, and he would not be a leaking problem.

Where Sessions is concerned, this is one we should believe when we see it.  Given that the rumors, if they aren’t just being made up out of whole cloth, likely come from someone in the White House who hates Sessions, it could be just one more example of fake news mongering.  Scott Pruitt, the rumored replacement for Sessions, would be a fabulous Attorney General, and unlike Sessions, would not be stupidly and unnecessarily recused from exercising oversight over Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation.

The problem there is that Pruitt has also been fabulous at EPA, where he has been aggressively reforming that out-of-control agency back to its statutory purpose of actually working to protect the environment after eight years of working to kill the national economy.  Putting someone else in charge over there, no matter who it might be, would necessarily place the progress achieved under Pruitt to this point at risk.

The other cabinet officials rumored to be in some jeopardy are VA Secretary David Shulkin  and Housing and Urban Development Secretary Ben Carson.  Shulkin definitely needs to be gotten rid of, as he has been a walking, talking crap show in the job since day one.  Not only has he utterly failed to implement desperately-needed reforms at the VA, his personal behavior while in the job has resulted in a steady stream of negative press.

One problem:  Trump’s preferred candidate for this job, Energy Secretary Rick Perry, let it be known yesterday that he’s not really interested in taking on the intractable VA problems (who in their right mind would be at this point?), so Mr. Trump is going to have to find another candidate.

Carson has been similarly lackluster in his job performance at HUD, and also produced an embarrassment to the Administration a few weeks ago by spending gobs of money on unnecessarily fancy furniture and other accessories that don’t really belong in government offices.  There’s no real pressing emergency where Carson’s concerned – he just hasn’t turned out to be the right guy for that particular job.

In any event, we should all expect more cabinet shake-ups in the coming days, maybe before the day is out.  In fact, we should expect this to be an ongoing dynamic in this presidency.  This sort of churning of senior staff has been a feature in Trump’s business dealings, and there is no reason to expect his presidency to be any different.  The best way to look at these cabinet appointments is as temp jobs.

Just another day in it’s Donald Trump’s world and we’re just living in it America.

That is all.

It Was Congressional Apprentice Time in the Oval Office Conference Room

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Here’s how you become President for Life in China. – In an effort to crack down on critics of President Xi Jinping, China’s government has recently gone about banning all sorts of things, including:

  • Winnie the Pooh (because some have said Xi looks like the famous cartoon character);
  • The books “Animal Farm” and “1984” for obvious reasons; and
  • The letter “N”, for reasons no one is quite sure about.

Upon seeing this news, liberals all over America had as their first thought, “hey, we could ban the letter “G” so nobody could talk about guns, and the letters “T” and “C” so nobody could ever talk about cutting taxes ever again!”  Because that’ is how the liberal mind works.  Sure wish China would quit giving these people ideas.

Speaking of liberals, NBC News reports that the housing shortage in Berkeley and other parts of Northern California has become so severe and created rent and home prices so high that liberals are now fighting with fellow liberals on how to address the issue.  The ’60s-era hippies who created the problem in the first place by insisting on “slow growth” policies are in their 70s and 80s now.  They all have their personal beds made and don’t really see a problem at all.  But the younger, Millennial-age hipsters who staff all the Silicon Valley companies want cheaper housing and lower rents, and are pushing for faster growth policies.

This all creates a virtual sitcom-worthy situation of liberals hurling epithets at one another that is always a joy to read and invariably exhibits an extraordinary lack of self-awareness.  One 78 year-old hippie says this about the younger contingent:  “I think they are a combination of dumb and venal and maybe equal parts of both.”  Now, can there be any doubt at all that this woman said this while wearing a Bernie Sanders for President t-shirt and sipping a half-caf, decaf, mocha soy latte?

Meanwhile, a spokesman for the younger contingent fires back with things like “They are the masters of hypocritical progressivism,” no doubt while wearing a Che Guevara cap while sitting in the front seat of a brand new $120,000 Porsche, the payment on which is higher than his rent, but which is a necessary status symbol in the Silicon Valley crowd.  Awesome stuff.  If Bravo weren’t staffed exclusively by liberals who lack the ability to see the hilarity in this conflict, this would make a great reality TV show.  Hey, maybe HGTV could send me and my wife out to California to become the hosts of a new show called Flip or Flop, Berkeley!

All Hope is lost. – Well, White House Communications Director Hope Hicks is lost, anyway.  The fourth occupant of the most difficult job in America became the latest to announce her resignation on Wednesday, citing the standard desire to “seek other opportunities.”  In the corporate world, this phrase invariably means the person leaving was actually forced out of his or her job.  Given all the high praise coming Ms. Hicks’s way from President Trump and Chief of Staff John Kelly, they’re the most likely suspects for having done the forcing.

The fake news media, as it does anytime anyone resigns from the White House Staff, is of course portraying the resignation of the 29 year-old communications person as “the beginning of the end for Donald Trump.”  It’s like the 6,000th time we’ve heard that since April 2015, and we can only assume we will hear it 6,000 times more before President Trump is re-elected for a second term in November 2020.

Speaking of President Trump, the guy who every fake reporter in the fake news media keeps telling us wants to silence the press once again invited the press to stay and record every second of a major meeting in the Oval Office conference room on Wednesday.  Surrounded by congressional Democrats and Republicans most interested in the gun control debate, the President spent over an hour dominating a back and forth discussion what could and could not be included in a bipartisan bill on the issue, in a scene very reminiscent of an episode of The Apprentice.

Republicans in the meeting did not appreciate being put on the spot by the President on several issues, but hey, these are the same Republicans who have not done a damn thing in 4 months since the Las Vegas massacre about getting rid of bump stocks, despite the NRA’s endorsement for doing so.  So it’s kind of hard to have much sympathy for them.

The President, as he tends to do in such settings, indicated support for things he really won’t support at the end of the day – like Dianne Feinstein’s confiscatory bill banning half the guns sold in America today – but he did put people on the spot to get something done, which was the goal of the meeting.  In doing so, he also gave the fake news media a level of access that it never had from Barack Obama or any other modern president.  But, being the liberals that they all are, it is doubtful anyone in the fake news media has the sense of self-awareness needed to recognize that reality.

Just another day in Congressional Apprentice America.

That is all.

Democrats: the Gun-Banning Vampires of American Society

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Tired of all this Winning yet? – After going through what seems to have been a fairly standard 10% correction during early February, the stock markets have bounced back.  The Dow Jones Industrial average rose by 399 points on Monday, and has now regained more than half of the losses from earlier in the month.  Meanwhile, the economy is rolling along so strongly that many economists fear it will create more new jobs than the nation has qualified candidates to fill.  This is what is known in economics 101 class as a good problem to have.  #Winning.

Ryan Seacrest is getting his moment in the #MeToo sun, as his former personal stylist accuses him of all manner of Harvey Weinstein-ish behavior towards her.  Should make for a fun season on the revival of American Idol.  Hey, when do Joe Scarborough and Chris Cuomo get to have their #MeToo moments?

After spending ten days in the wake of the Florida school shootings laughably claiming they didn’t want to ban guns, the Democrat Party has done what it always does, which is demonstrate it was lying in unison.  On Monday, more than 150 Democrats in the U.S. House of Representatives introduced a bill that would ban vaguely-defined “assault weapons.”

If you’re thinking this is a repeat of Dianne Feinstein’s 1990s-era fiasco that sought to ban weapons based solely on what they look like, think again.  This bill would go much further, prohibiting “the ‘sale, transfer, production, and importation’ of semi-automatic rifles and pistols that can hold a detachable magazine, as well as semi-automatic rifles with a magazine that can hold more than 10 rounds. Additionally, the legislation bans the sale, transfer, production, and importation of semi-automatic shotguns with features such as a pistol grip or detachable stock, and ammunition feeding devices that can hold more than 10 rounds.”

If any of that comes as a surprise to you, then you have probably also been surprised over the last 26 years as the Democrat Party and its leftwing activist support base have worked as hard as human beings possibly could to erode your right to free exercise of religion, your freedom from self-incrimination, your freedom from unreasonable search and seizure, not to mention their all-out assault on your first amendment right to free speech in recent years.  But again, none of that should have surprised you, either.

It should not have to be repeated yet again, but here goes:  Anyone who adheres to leftist orthodoxy – as basically every Democrat in America today does – is a budding tyrant.  Their policy choices cannot be supported by facts or logic;  thus, the only way Democrats can gain power and maintain is by lying.  The lies can only be sustained if the public is ignorant, demoralized and helpless.  The way to keep the public ignorant, demoralized and helpless is to control what they say, do and think.  The way to control what they say, do and think is to rob Americans of their constitutional rights.

There.  Print that paragraph out and tape it to your refrigerator door for future reference.

Hey, I thought that whole “mansplaining” thing was supposed be bad. – Meanwhile, the Democrats with press passes at CNN took the whole gun confiscation argument into the realm of the absurd – which is CNN’s main core competency, after all – as law enforcement analyst Tom Fuentes suggested that 52% of the U.S. population (that would be all you women out there, or is it “wymyn?”) can’t own handguns because “they wear skirts” and stuff.  I swear I don’t make this stuff up.  Who could?

In other news, 17 year-old Parkland, Florida motor-mouth David Hogg lobbed out the king of all futile gestures, swearing that he won’t go back to school until the Florida state legislature passes a bill to ban guns.  Uh, ok.  You go, dude.

In all seriousness, does this kid not have parents?  Does he not have even a single responsible adult in his life who gives a damn about him?  Hogg is obviously being fed talking points – anyone who has done communications or public policy work for a living will recognize that reality about him in 3 seconds of listening to the things he recites from memory on CNN and MSNBC every day.  That means that he has gotten himself tied up with either the local Democrat Party or some group of leftist activists, which is essentially the same thing.

Some responsible adult who actually gives a damn about Mr. Hogg needs to sit him down and explain to him that these activists, and the leftwing activists who masquerade as “journalists” on the cable news channels, are not his friends.  They don’t care about him or his future.  They think he’s cute, fairly articulate, and that he currently serves a temporary purpose in helping them hammer Republicans and President Trump.  Once that purpose has run its course – which will take no more than another week or two – all of these people who Hogg currently believes are his friends will drop him like a hot potato and pretend not to know him for all the rest of his natural life.

These people Hogg has gotten himself tied up with are ghouls, the vampires of American society.  They suck the life out of people like Hogg to feed their political purposes, and then discard the lifeless carcass once it has finished feeding their current narrative.  Hogg obviously has been led to believe that his current actions are setting himself up for a career in the media or politics.  That is sadly, horrifically incorrect, and some adult in his life needs to intervene, soon.

Just another day in Democrats are ghouls America.

That is all.

What A Sad Existence It Must Be To Fake The News For CNN And The NYTimes

Today’s Campaign Update 

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

  • Actor Keven Spacey, who has apparently had a habit of preying on young boys over the last 30-plus years, played the traditional “I’m sick” card yesterday, checking into the very same rehab facility used by Harvey Weinstein.  Weinstein managed to last a whole week before he just couldn’t take anymore curing and decided to declare himself “cured” and fly the coop.  Of course, Spacey is an actor, not a mere producer like Weinstein, so we can expect Spacey to keep up this facade of seeking help for quite a bit longer, because that’s what actors who prey on children do.
  • We can always hope. – The Hollywood Reporter runs a piece this morning by some guy named Stephen Galloway titled “Harassment, Scandal and the Media: Is a Hollywood Witch Hunt Brewing?” My reaction to that is dang, let’s hope so, since there sure do seem to be a lot of witches running around Hollywood, assaulting women and little boys.
  • The writer’s big concern is that, golly, the bad ol’ fake news media – a news media that had huddled happily in Tinseltown’s hip pocket for the last century – might not exercise proper care and will start airing accusations at all those innocent people as well as the guilty.  Obviously this guy hasn’t heard that the New York Times actually had the goods on Weinstein in 2004, and chose to sit on the story rather than upset its advertising revenue, or that Ronan Farrow was turned down with his own story on Weinstein by NBC before finding a home for it elsewhere.  Or that fake news media icon Barbara Walters viciously attacked Corey Feldman when he appeared on The View in 2013 to talk about his and the late Corey Haim’s experience with Hollywood’s pedophile mafia.
  • To this point, the fake news media has been far more interested in covering up for Hollywood’s monsters than in carelessly pointing fingers at anyone who is innocent.  And let’s be honest, the same is true of all those actors, directors and producers who have piously lined up to claim “I didn’t know” after having worked closely with Weinstein, Spacey and other monsters for the last 30 years.  They were all more than happy to hide the monsters in their midst as long as the monsters might benefit their careers in some way.
  • This….is CNN. – The fake reporters and editors and hosts at CNN are so anxious to portray President Donald Trump as an incompetent boob that they resorted on Monday to intentionally editing a video of him feeding Koi fish with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe in a way to fasely portray him as breaking protocol.  The video, as edited, shows the President following the Prime Minister’s lead in spooning food from a box into the Koi pond, and then shows Mr. Trump pouring the remainder of the food from the box, as CNN’s commentators claim he just got tired of spooning the food.  The unedited video, of course, shows that the President was simply following the Prime Minister’s lead in emptying the box after a few spoonfuls had gone into the pond.
  • How sad an existence must it be to get up out of bed every morning believing that it is your job as an employee of CNN to intentionally mislead the American public?  Sad!
  • Wait, what? – Speaking of sad existences, Brett Stephens, the NYTimes’ latest fake conservative op/ed mascot, told the nitwits who host “Morning Joe” on Monday that conservatives can’t cite a “single instance” of anyone “us[ing] their guns to protect their liberties.”  This statement ironically came less than 24 hours after someone using his guns protected not only his, but a bunch of other peoples’ civil liberties by shutting down the leftist Antifa disciple who was wantonly killing people in a Baptist church in Sutherland Springs, Texas.
  • It is not surprising that Mr. Stephens is not aware of that element of the story – he does work for the NYTimes, after all – or that he is unaware of the literally thousands of instances of armed citizens protecting their homes, families and civil liberties from assault by thugs that take place each year around the country.  Nor is it surprising that no one on the Morning Joe lineup of lunatics had the presence of mind to correct him, since they’re all locked in the NYTimes fake news bubble themselves.  The only surprising thing about any of this really is that the NYTimes’ editors still feel the need to hire liberal idiots to pretend to be “conservative” writers on the fake newspaper’s op/ed pages.  Why continue a facade that no one believes?
  • Oh, wait – that literally describes the daily modus operandi of our country’s entire national news media.  Nevermind.

Just another day in shamelessly Fake News Media America.

That is all.
