Swalwell Out; Steyer In; Democrats Swap One Hopeless Doofus For Another

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

[Editor’s Note: The Campaign Update will be silent from July 11 through July 23 because Dave needs some down time.]

The world mourns the loss of a leftist hero. – Americans all over…well…somewhere were saddened on Monday when Democrat presidential non-contender Eric Swalwell, who famously promised on Twitter to nuke recalcitrant citizens (see below) who refused to surrender their guns to his planned army of jack-booted thugs, announced he was ending his campaign. Swalwell had run a valiant, disciplined and focused campaign, one that saw him rise all the way up to next-to-last place in the race, reaching as high as .000001% in the polls before the first debates two weeks ago.

Sadly, this turned to to be the point of Peak Swalwell.

After what critics unfairly labeled as a “laughable,” “cartoonish,” and “is this guy really serious?” debate performance saw his poll standing fall to .00000001% in the polls taken afterwards, Swalwell reassessed his chances. Realizing that not even appearing on the same stage with the likes of Kirsten Gillibrand and John Hickenlooper had helped his standing with potential voters, Swalwell decided to throw in the towel (if only he could have been on-stage with Beto O’Rourke – then he’d have appeared almost normal). The decision point apparently came when he saw that his popularity had fallen even below that of the despicable and buffoonish Bill DeBlasio.

So back to congress he will go, where he can once again take up the gauntlet as CNN’s second-favorite liar about the Mueller Report, right behind his fellow California congressman, Adam Schiff.

“We have to be honest about our own candidacy’s viability,” Swalwell told reporters at a press conference Monday. “Today ends our presidential campaign, but it is the beginning of an opportunity in Congress with a new perspective shaped by the lives that have touched me and my campaign over the past few months.”

Neither of the two residents of Dubuque, Iowa whose lives apparently touched Swalwell were available for comment. Both were too busy cooking up a new batch of meth.

 

But never fear, for Tom Steyer is here! – Yes, friends, just when things look their darkest, a new self-serving light appears on the horizon. Self-styled “environmental” activist Tom Steyer – hey, did you know he amassed his fortune investing in coal? – plans to jump into the race today.

Oh, joy!

You may remember Steyer. He’s the guy who famously spent tens of millions of his own money in 2017-2018 on a series of TV ads promoting the impeachment of President Donald Trump. He is so personally repugnant on television that the ads actually caused the President to go up in the polls.

Oh, so he’s just like Eric Swalwell, but with a lot of money?  Yes, that guy.

Steyer is a one-trick pony, a pony whose one trick is exactly the same as Washington state Governor Jay Inslee, another sort-of-candidate who is polling at .000000001% in the presidential horse race. So Steyer apparently plans to swoop into the race, scoop up Swalwell’s .000000001% support and fight it out with Inslee over how to destroy the U.S. economy to fight the bogeyman “Climate Change.” The “winner” would presumably then have .00000002% support and be on a bullet to overtake DeBlasio for next-to-last place.

After that, he would obviously target Gillibrand and her .00000003% support, and be off to the races.

No telling how many millions Steyer is willing to part with in order to achieve his goals, but a fool and his money are soon parted, and Steyer has billions to part with. So, it’s probably a lot.

If they didn’t actually exist (which I’m assuming they actually do, though I have no real proof), the greatest fiction writers in world history could never come close to making these Democrats up.

That is all.

AOC is an Actress, and Other Bits of Democrat Chicanery

The Afternoon Campaign Update
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Some mid-day short takes on the passing scene…

Everyone should watch this video. – Trust me, just watch it. It’ll be the best 23 minutes you invest this week.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez isn’t a politician, she’s an actress. A puppet whose strings are being pulled behind the scenes by a group that calls itself the Justice Democrats, and is headed by the depraved Cenk Uygur.

This is all stuff I was not aware of, and of course our fake news media will never dream of reporting on any of it, so most of the general public will remain blissfully unaware. But isn’t it informative, and doesn’t it help explain so much?

Once you realize and accept this reality about the human sock puppet who is AOC, everything that has taken place with her over the past year, everything she says and does, makes perfect sense.

Wait, what? Um, isn’t that, like, collusion or something? – A super PAC set up to fund the campaign of Jeb! Bush in 2016 just got hit by the Federal Elections Commission with a massive fine for accepting $1.3 million in illegal contributions from Chinese-owned corporation American Pacific International Capital.

Very predictably, this illegal activity on the part of the Bush Campaign did not rise to headline news in your fake news media, and no Democrat in congress has called for the appointment of a Special Counsel to investigate this apparent collusion with China. Funny how that all works.

I wonder how many dead elderly Americans Newsweek polled in order to reach this conclusion? – This is a real, actual headline on a story at the ongoing disastrous failure that is Newsweek:

ELDERLY AMERICANS ARE DYING WITHOUT GETTING TO READ MUELLER’S REPORT – AND THEY’RE NOT HAPPY ABOUT IT

I swear I do not make this stuff up. I mean, really, who could?

Who is this Brie Larsen, and why did her parents name her for a type of cheese? – Pat Sajak bemoans the way today’s social justice warriors have taken the fun out of literally everything:

Spoiled Billionaire Used To Getting His Way Lashes Out! – Fake environmentalist Tom Steyer – who made most of his fortune through coal investments – isn’t taking Nancy Pelosi’s new impeachment talking points well, and is too dumb to understand she’s lying.

Steyer, who has already invested tens of millions of dollars in goofy, pro-impeachment ad campaigns and plans to throw millions more down that particular rat hole, had this to say in response to Pelosi’s new fake position on the matter:

“Speaker Pelosi thinks ‘he’s just not worth it?’ Well, is defending our legal system ‘worth it?’ Is holding the President accountable for his crimes and cover-ups ‘worth it?’ Is doing what’s right ‘worth it?’ Or shall America just stop fighting for our principles and do what’s politically convenient?”

This guy is so. damn. naive. He actually thinks Democrats care about quaint notions like “principles.” Laughable.

When anti-gun activists suddenly realize the error of their ways… – The Daily Caller reports that a Connecticut anti-gun activist was kicked out of a hearing on the gun control issue when she was caught sending texts in which she threatened to … wait for it … SHOOT a Republican politician and other opponents of gun control.

I swear, you really cannot make this stuff up.

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.

The Real Leftist Agenda on Gun Control is Simple: Confiscation

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

  • These events never work out the way the fake news media want them to. – President Trump, as promised, visited the ravaged island of Puerto Rico on Tuesday, and everyone at CNN and NBC was horrified to see him enthusiastically received by grateful Puerto Ricans.  San Juan’s Marxist Mayor Cruz wore spiked heels to the joint briefing with the President, and no one at Vanity Fair or the New York times tossed a fit about it.  Go figure.
  • In other news, I had an email from a lefty friend late yesterday, an email that ended with an expression of this person’s feeling that “we really need to have a national dialogue about guns.”  That sounded suspiciously like the leftist talking point started by Tom Brokaw Monday morning and parroted by pretty much every Democrat politician and fake journalist who can still utter coherent sentences – which obviously excludes Nancy Pelosi – but I didn’t say that to this person.
  • Instead, my reply was very brief:  “Ok, I’ll start.  You can’t have my guns.  Great talk.”  Thus, my lefty friend may now be just a lefty acquaintance, I’m not sure, since I never got a reply.  I suppose I’ll find out in due time.
  • But whatever, this is really the only reply conservatives can offer to lefties on this subject, for one simple reason:  the leftist heart is not pure on this subject.  Well, ok, the leftist heart is not pure on any subject, but on gun control it is especially not pure.
  • This lack of purity of intentions becomes manifestly obvious every time we have a tragic event like the Las Vegas massacre, and every leftwinger in the country knee jerks to offering logic-devoid sophistries about the “need for more gun control” before we even know the name of the maniac who perpetrated the act, much less anything about his background or how he acquired his weapons.
  • The Las Vegas shooter is a great example of leftists’ lockstep refusal to deal with facts.  Due to his work history, which included stints at the U.S. Postal Service, the IRS and a defense contractor, and in the process of legally acquiring his massive stash of firearms, we now know this scumbag somehow managed to pass more than 30 FBI background checks during his life.  He obtained his guns in states with some of the most restrictive gun laws in the country, dotted every ‘I’, crossed every ‘T’, and was able to accumulate an arsenal.  Yet I heard half a dozen leftwing idiot politicians, such as the execrable valor thief Richard Blumenthal, talk about the need for more background checks when obtaining firearms.  Which part of “30 FBI background checks” do you not understand, Senator?
  • But of course, Blumenthal gets a pass from the fake news media, which is uniformly parroting the same false narrative, because enhanced background checks are not the real agenda here.  If you give Blumenthal his enhanced background checks, and give Chuck Schumer his desire to outlaw “bump stocks”, then the next time there is a mass shooting perpetrated by some guy who passed all the background checks to legally acquire his firearms, Dick and Chuck are just going to come back wanting something else that won’t have any effect other than robbing law-abiding citizens of more of their freedoms.
  • Note to all conservatives thinking about offering concessions to these people:  The real agenda is LEFTISTS WANT TO TAKE YOUR GUNS AWAY FROM YOU.  That’s it.  That’s where they all want to go, that’s what is in their hearts and minds, and everything they do and say related to this issue is designed to get them to that point.
  • If you gave Hillary Clinton or Bernie Sanders 30 seconds to be dictator of America, the one thing he or she would get done in that 30 seconds would be to rescind the 2nd Amendment and send an army of jack-booted, bullet-proof vest-wearing, ironically gun-toting thugs into your home to forcibly take away all of your guns and leave you defenseless.  Because leftists believe that only the jack-booted, bullet-proof vest wearing, ironically gun-toting thugs loyal to them should be able to tote guns in our society.
  • And don’t think this is really about preventing atrocities like what took place in Las Vegas Sunday.  Hell, if it was about that, they’d be trying to ban big white trucks, since a radical Islamic terrorist killed 86 people in Nice last year with a big white truck.
  • This is about control.  Not gun control, just control.  Leftists want to control you.  They think they are smarter than you, better than you, know better than you do how you should live your life, and think they should be able to dictate all of that to you.  They honestly do.  This is how their minds work.  It’s how they are wired.
  • This is the real nature of leftism: It’s a mental disorder.  Throughout the history of the 20th and 21st centuries, the implementation of leftism in any society has inevitably led to a violent end.  Venezuela is just the latest in a very long line of nations to sadly experience this inevitable progression.  The first two steps in such a progression are always 1) the government takeover of the news media, which was already 90% achieved during the Obama Administration, and 2) the disarming of the public.
  • Guess where we are in that progression?
  • Offering concessions to these people is no different than offering concessions to Lenin, or Hitler, or Mao, or Castro or Hugo Chavez:  The next time there’s an incident, they’re always going to want more concessions, and every concession is just one more step down the road to their ultimate, true goal.
  • So stop it.  Just stop.

That is all.

Las Vegas: Americans Deserve Better Than Yet Another False Narrative

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

  • The big news out of the National Football League this morning is that every player on both teams stood for the moment of silence honoring the memories of the victims of the Las Vegas massacre.  Imagine that:  106 millionaire prima donas and not a one of them picked that for their personal “look at me” moment.  Even better, all 53 Washington Redskins actually stood for the national anthem, although 2 Chiefs felt the need to sit and look stupid.  Nobody really knew why they were sitting, and probably they really didn’t, either.
  • In other, less important and less media-covered NFL news, the Chiefs won the game.
  • Meanwhile, in Las Vegas, authorities continue to search for a motive for the mass shooting.  Even though ISIS took credit for the assault, claiming the man was a recent convert to Islam, the LVPD and other investigating agencies claim to have found no evidence yet to support any terrorist affiliation.  ISIS also took credit for a casino attack earlier this year which authorities believe was actually a botched robbery, so there is reason to be at least skeptical of the group’s claim in this case.
  • Already, an official narrative is becoming clear in this case.  Such narratives always follow a familiar line in these mass murder cases and assassinations:  the guy was a “loner”, he “kept to himself”, he was “just a regular guy”, and no one in his family, none of his friends, nor anyone in his neighborhood had any idea at all that he was a raging psychopath.  Yep, this guy had somehow accumulated an arsenal roughly equivalent to that of the Bulgarian Army, was carrying what he needed to make a huge fertilizer bomb in his car, and spent four days carting firearms and ammunition into his comped suite at the Mandalay Bay, and nobody had any idea at all that he was up to something.
  • Folks, I can’t take a walk without 15 people in my neighborhood knowing about it.  This guy lived in a closely-packed retirement community filled with nosy senior citizens.  But we are supposed to believe that he was able to build a stockpile of firearms and explosives that would fill your local National Guard Armory and nobody had any idea.
  • 59 Americans are dead as I write this.  Many more remain in critical condition at Las Vegas hospitals.  More than 500 were wounded in the assault.  These victims, their families and other loved ones, the people of Las Vegas and everyone else in America deserve to learn the truth about what happened.
  • It would be a real benefit to our society if the local officials – who seem to be doing a fantastic job – could be allowed a few days to accumulate and examine the evidence available, interview the man’s friends, family and neighbors, and conduct a full investigation without the creeps at CNN and the major TV networks pushing out a cookie-cutter narrative that may or may not have any real basis in reality.
  • Americans deserve better than this.
  • Speaking of Americans deserving better, it took Hillary Clinton and her fellow Democrats about 15 minutes to start politicizing the Las Vegas tragedy into yet another assault on the 2nd Amendment to the Constitution.  The Most Corrupt Woman In America was on her Twitter account before noon on Monday (she got up early), tweeting out ignorant nonsense (what else is new?) designed to stir up her followers for another push for blaming the inanimate objects for the actions of another mad man.
  • Ms. Clinton has obviously watched too many episodes of Hawaii 5-0, since she obviously believes that “silencers” actually make guns emit no sound.  This rank ignorance led her to tweet, “The crowd fled at the sound of gunshots.  Imagine the deaths if the shooter had a silencer, which the NRA wants to make easier to get.”  As one expert pointed out a little later, putting suppressors on the guns this guy used would have still emitted a noise level roughly equal to that of a jackhammer.  Also, it probably would have been a blessing had the guy tried to use suppressors, since they would have likely made his guns overheat and fail before they finished firing their first clip.
  • But Democrats never let facts get in the way of a good narrative.  Thus,within a few hours, pretty much every “leader” of the national Democrat Party weighed in with their own personal brands of ignorance and demagoguery.  All in keeping with the Democrat motto, “Never let a good crisis go to waste,” even when there are 59 dead bodies involved.

Just another day in Americans deserve better than this America.

That is all.
