Bloomberg’s In! Sort of. Maybe.

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

Tired of all this #WINNING yet? – The Dow Jones Industrials and S&P 500 set new record high closes on Thursday amid very solid corporate earnings reports and optimism about an interim trade deal with China. The NASDAQ also had a gain for the day and closed at its second-highest level of all-time.

Despite all the howling from liberal “experts” that tariffs would destroy the market, the Dow is up by almost 11%, the S&P 500 by almost 14% and the NASDAQ by right at 16% since President Trump first announced tariffs on China in February 2018. Maybe it’s time to find some new “experts.”

Mayor Big Gulp dips his toe into the race. Will he go all-in? – Former New York City Mayor Mike Bloomberg, the billionaire professional nanny who famously outlawed the selling of sugary soft drinks in cups larger than 20 ounces, made the first move towards getting into the race for the 2020 Democrat nomination Thursday when he filed paperwork to get himself on the ballot in Alabama.

While most corrupt fake news media swooned hysterically at the prospect of another big Democrat hero entering the race, Tal Axelrod at The Hill got the story right in a piece headlined, “Bloomberg signals interest in entering presidential race.” Bloomberg is filing the paperwork in Alabama because it is the state with the earliest filing deadline. What he did yesterday was just a baby step towards getting ready to formally enter the race.

The ex-Mayor has not formed up a campaign committee, hired campaign staff or done any of the myriad other things anyone must do in order to mount a presidential campaign. He can do those things very quickly when he makes his final decision, since he, like Donald Trump, is a billionaire who can self-fund his own effort, but until he does those things, he’s just dipping his toe in the water.

Here’s a big catch with Mayor Bloomberg, though: At age 77, he is actually nine months older than the geriatric Joe Biden, who really does appear to be in a state of rapid mental decline. Bloomberg appears to be in much better physical and mental condition than Biden, but this is an extremely advanced age for a person seeking the presidency. Ronald Reagan, our oldest serving President in history, was 77 when he left office after 8 years on the job. Bloomberg would be 78 on his inauguration day.

Bloomberg will presumably base his campaign on an “I’m the one who isn’t batsh*t crazy” strategy, but as Joe Biden has discovered, that strategy has limited utility in a field crowded with various levels of Alinskyite/Marxist grifters. As of today, Biden, a massive front-runner just 6 months ago, finds himself running in 4th place in Iowa, a weak 2nd in New Hampshire, and clinging to an increasingly-tenuous lead in the national polls.

If you consider Preacher Pete Buttigieg to also not be batsh*t crazy, then as of today, in the RealClearPolitics average of national polls, the “I’m the one who isn’t batsh*t crazy” segment of the Democrat voter base amounts to just 35%. Add in Amy Klobuchar and you get to 37%. Tacking on Andrew Yang and Tulsi Gabbard gets you to 41%.

Now, Bloomberg presumably wants to just jump in and divvy up that minority pie even further, because it is a mistake to believe that Biden and/or Buttigieg are just going to throw up their hands and shout “no mas!” like Roberto Duran (you Millennials will have to Google that reference) just because some guy who hasn’t held elected office in six years is jumping in with a lot of media fanfare. Should Bloomberg actually fully enter the race, the most likely impact would be to end Biden’s status as the national front-runner and basically make it even less likely that any candidate in the field would be able to accumulate enough delegates during the primaries to win the nomination on the first ballot at next year’s convention.

You are going to see a lot of wild predictions from your fake news media today and over the weekend about Bloomberg somehow becoming an immediate front-runner in the race. But once all of that settles and Democrat voters start to see just how un-exciting this guy truly is, his most likely impact will be to simply muddle the picture further than it already is.

Meanwhile, the Fainting Felon sits out there in her wardrobe of pantsuits and hospital gowns, waiting to waltz in as the Party’s savior at a hung convention next summer.

You just could never make this stuff up, folks.

P.S.: If you really believe that Bloomberg actually isn’t batsh*t crazy, invest a couple of minutes in reviewing this clip from a September interview:

And just for your further edification, here are photos of Mr. Bloomberg paling around with Jeffrey Epstein’s partner, Ghislaine Maxwell:

Oh. The more you know…

That is all.

The Democrat Nomination Race is All Jumbled-up Again

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

One of the biggest ways the ongoing fake impeachment circus benefits the Democrat Party is to take public attention away from the parade of clowns who are seeking the party’s 2020 presidential nomination. Sure, it hasn’t helped Joe Biden, with the revelation of the influence peddling he conducted with his ne’er-do-well son Hunter, but nothing can really help Biden, who most days doesn’t even know what state he’s in. And you get the occasional 4-hour pop-up news cycle when one of the clowns – most recently, Irish Bob O’Rourke – calls an unceremonious end to his or her failed campaigns.

But otherwise, the rest of these grifters, scam artists and just plain nitwits have been able to fly mostly under the public radar since their last disastrous debate in mid-October thanks to all the media obsession over Nancy Pelosi’s and Adam Schiff’s impeachment scam. But, since today is exactly one year out from Election Day 2020, and I’m frankly tired of talking about that particular scam, today is a very good day for Today’s Campaign Update to provide an update on the actual campaign, right? Right.

Lieawatha’s War Path Stalls – The first thing to note about the progression of the campaign over the past several weeks is that the momentum in the race seen by Little Mouth Always Running throughout August and September has now stalled. It was easy for demented Democrat voters and fake journalists to view Fauxcahontas as a younger, fresher version of The Commie while she was safely polling in third place, but once she passed Sanders and started polling first in a poll here and there, everyone had to take a step back in start thinking about what the Party’s prospects would be in 2020 with Princess Gonna Take All Your Money at the top of the ticket.

It turns out that there are actually some Democrats who are capable of semi-rational thought, and that $52 trillion price tag on her “Medicare for All” plan has many in the Party suddenly experiencing reservations about making this particular life-long fraud the Party’s standard-bearer next year. Lieawatha’s little tom-tom boomlet in the polls stagnated in late-September, and she has actually faded slightly throughout October.

The Squad goes full Commie – Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and her “squad” of female freshmen congressional Saul Alinsky disciples chose to endorse the oldest, most pasty-white male in the race, despite their constant bashing of old, white men as the cause for all of society’s ills. That old, pasty-white guy happens to be The Commie who, at age 78, is just a year older than fellow old, pasty-white guy Joe Biden.

The Squad’s endorsement of The Commie came barely a week after the Senator from the People’s Republic of Vermont suffered a heart event, at least according to published media reports. Since literally nothing that our national news media reports can be trusted anymore, who knows if he really had any health issue or not? It’s a crapshoot.

In any event, the endorsement by the Party’s most radical group of leftist nitwits got the Democrats’ Perpetual Outrage Mob really motivated, and The Commie’s poll numbers, which had slowly declined throughout the long, hot summer, have stabilized since.

Preacher Pete is a “rising star” one more time – Preacher Pete Buttigieg, the mayor of some little town in Indiana, was the Party’s favorite media-boosted “rising star” throughout the spring. But like Sanders, he had seen his polling fortunes wane throughout the summer after his media toadies figured out that he has literally zero appeal to Black voters, who make up a huge portion of the Party’s support base.

But Preacher Pete has made a significant comeback in the polls since the October debate, during which he said a few things that the media liars can refer to as “moderate” without spewing coffee all over their keyboards. The 37 year-old radical leftist scold is now being promoted as the “sensible moderate alternative to Joe Biden,” who everyone knows will not be the Democrat nominee next year.

As a result of this new media promotion angle, Preacher Pete is once a gain running solidly in fourth place in the national polls, and a very strong second in Iowa behind Lieawatha now. How long that can last is anyone’s guess, but the best bet is it will last until his current media admirers find some other cute candidate on whom to focus their love interests.

Kamala’s campaign is on life support – The single most illegitimate candidate in the race, who literally slept her way to the U.S. Senate, has just about run out of gas. She has spent the last week firing all of her staff in New Hampshire and other states, and blaming her pathetic performance on sexism, racism and any other -ism she can think of. Call it the Hillary Clinton Strategy.

The truth is that Kamala Harris is a terribly unappealing person, and a horrible campaigner to boot. She has now mysteriously chosen to focus basically all of her remaining campaign assets on Iowa, where she is polling a very consistent 3%, running a very distant 6th place behind even Amy Klobuchar.

Basically, this race has now become a war of attrition, one in which we are seeing candidate after candidate drop out after finally going broke. Next up in that procession will likely be dead-man-walking candidates like Julian Castro of Texas, Colorado Senator Michael Bennet, and Montana Governor Steve Bullock.

Sen. Klobuchar still has some money, so she’ll just keep plugging along in Iowa and few other states in hopes of catching lightning in a bottle at some point. Tulsi Gabbard and Andrew Yang, the field’s two “outliers,” i.e., actual interesting candidates, also have done a solid job of raising and conserving funds and appear to be in it at least until Super Tuesday comes around next March. And the singularly irritating billionaire Tom Steyer has unlimited funds of his own, and obviously enjoys hanging around and irritating people, so he’ll keep campaigning and polling at or near zero for the foreseeable future.

Bottom line: A month ago, this race appeared to be shaping up as Fauxcahontas’s race to lose. But here we sit with a year to go before the general election, and it’s gotten all jumbled up again. With Biden slowly collapsing and the Pantsuit Princess now making increasing noises about getting into the race, the chances of this thing ending up with an open convention process next Summer are once again on the rise.

So much fuss over a process that is just going to end up picking someone to go out and lose to President Donald Trump. But hey, these are Democrats we’re talking about here.

Here are my updated odds for the ultimate outcome of this circus clown parade:

Someone not currently in the race: Even

Elizabeth Warren: 5 to 2

Preacher Pete: 7 to 2

The Commie: 4 to 1

Joe Biden: 10 to 1

Amy Klobuchar: 15 to 1

Kamala Harris: 20 to 1

Tulsi Gabbard: 50 to 1

Andrew Yang: 50 to 1

The rest of the current field: 100 to 1

That is all.

President Trump Being Booed at Nationals Park Was a Great Moment for America

Today’s Campaign Update, Part II
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

The booing of an American president at the World Series game that happened in Washington, DC Sunday night is not a negative for the rest of America, but a positive. It is especially a positive for those of us who live out here in what the east-and-west-coast elites derisively refer to as “flyover country,” that great, vast middle 80% of the lower 48 states that turned into a veritable sea of red on Election Day, 2016.

You may wonder why the booing of a sitting POTUS by any crowd could ever be seen as a positive thing, but that’s because you’re likely unclear about who was doing the booing. First, let’s go back to this laughable contention about the crowds at Nationals Park put out by the Democrat activists at Politico Monday morning:

Nats Park is perhaps one of the only gathering places in town that draws Republicans and Democrats in equal measure — but his box was all red.

Now, let’s remember that in the 2016 presidential election, the District of Columbia, home to Nationals Park, favored Hillary Clinton over Donald Trump by a 96% to 4% margin. And no, that is not a typo.  NINETY-SIX PERCENT of D.C. voters cast their lot with the Pantsuit Princess.

Thus, the contention that Nationals Park somehow “draws Republicans and Democrats in equal measure” is exactly as I described it in this morning’s Campaign Update: A smelly load of abject horse manure. If nothing else, the arithmetic simply does not support the specious assertion.

But it’s even more than that. See, the seats at Nationals Park are very expensive, and thus aren’t mainly occupied by just any old D.C. residents. As is the case in any city hosting a professional sports franchise, a very large percentage of those very expensive seats are purchased by corporations and wealthy folks who have business interests in the local community.

In Washington, DC, all of those corporations and business interests employ lobbyists who determine how those very expensive tickets are doled out. Guess who they go to? They go to the people being lobbied, and to the professional peers and colleagues of the lobbyists.

Thus, the crowd that roundly booed the President of the United States of America at Sunday night’s Astros/Nationals game was largely made up of the DC professional political class; the lobbyists, the lawyers, the congressional and campaign staffers, the company executives, the advertising geeks and digital media geeks and all the myriad other professionals who make their livings making sure that the DC Swamp remains very, very swampy.

In other words, the very group of people who Candidate Donald Trump rendered utterly irrelevant throughout the 2016 campaign. Donald Trump’s presidency is a threat to that entrenched DC permanent political class – is it any wonder then that they hate him so much that they chant “Lock him up!” when appears before them at a World Series game?

Many fans of the President are angry over that insult, but they should all be rejoicing. Because that booing was as clear a confirmation we could ever hope to receive that the guy we elected in 2016 is continuing to focus on doing what he was elected to do: Drain the DC Swamp. Threatened people boo. Angry people boo.

Those of us who live out here in the vast Red middle of this great nation want the folks who make up the preponderance of that Sunday night crowd to feel perpetually threatened and angry. It’s when that particular class of people stands up and cheers for a President that we should be concerned.

Sunday, the day the leader of ISIS was killed by a U.S. military operation, was a great day for America. The reaction the President received at Nationals Park only made it that much better.

That is all.

Tulsi Gabbard, the DC Swamp’s New Heretic

Today’s Campaign Update, Part III
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Burn the heretic! Burn the heretic! – So, what is really going on with this effort – detailed here yesterday – by the Democrat/media/RINO Axis of Propaganda to brand Hawaii Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard as a “Russian agent”? No doubt, many readers can already guess, right?

This is the Axis of Propaganda, which has saddled our nation with a three-year neverending coup effort, already building the foundation for its excuse for losing the 2020 election, in which they know they have little chance of preventing President Donald Trump from winning re-election to a second term. That foundation for excusing the loss – by blaming it all on the Russians one more time – will then serve as the kicking off point and justification for another four years of neverending coup efforts.

Yes, it’s all incredibly tiresome and futile, but this is all these people have left at this point. If you wonder why they keep doing this kind of thing, you have to understand that to the denizens of the DC Swamp, this is a literal fight for survival. President Trump isn’t just upsetting the apple cart, every action he takes is a direct assault on their corrupt way of life.

In Syria, Trump is destroying their foundation for never-ending Middle East wars, from which many trillion of dollars of graft and no-bid contracts have flowed to all the influence peddlers and hangers-on.

By implementing policies that have helped the oil and gas industry make our country more energy secure, Trump has helped destroy any compelling reason why our country must remain entangled in all of the Middle East’s 2,000 year-old conflicts between various religions and sects.

By investigating the actions of Quid Pro Joe and his ne’er-do-well son Hunter, Trump is exposing the kind of influence game that thousands of DC Swamp denizens spend their lives aspiring to become a part of.

By working to end the last 30 years of trade deals that have allowed China and other nations across the globe to drain America’s wealth, Trump is upsetting the 30-year effort to end America’s status as the world’s lone true superpower.

By investigating the origins of the FBI/CIA/State Department spying efforts against the Trump Campaign, Trump threatens to expose the Obama-era corruption that not only turned most federal departments into mob-like enterprises, but leads all the way up to the Obama White House.

By mentioning Crowd Strike and the DNC server on his call with Ukraine President Zelensky, Trump signaled that he knows full well where and how the neverending coup germinated.

And by doing everything he can to secure the southern border with Mexico, Trump exposes the globalist attempt to turn our nation into a classic socialist two-tiered society, one with a ruling class consisting of a few million and an easily-manipulated and controlled permanent underclass consisting of several hundred million.

If you understand these motivations by the Axis of Propaganda, you realize that the assault on Gabbard, a Major in the Hawaii National Guard who has served two full tours in the Middle East, is simply a shot across the bow signaling that the Swamp hasn’t surrendered, and its leaders are gearing up for another four years of the same old bullsh*t.

Gabbard has made herself a target due to her refusal to support the Axis of Propaganda’s narrative that President Trump is somehow an illegitimate president. She regularly admits that Trump did win the 2016 election fair and square in her stump speeches, and likely set off this week’s round of attacks on her character when she said it again during the Tuesday night debate. This is the main reason why I frequently refer to her as the only truly interesting person in the Democrat field – she’s the only actual independent voice on that debate stage.

In the world of the neverending Middle East warmongers like the Pantsuit Princess, anyone who favors the Trump policy of getting the U.S. out off all of these Islam-driven conflicts automatically becomes someone to be demonized as a tool of Vladimir Putin. The Axis of Propaganda has been running a social media effort to demonize Gabbard throughout 2019, and her statement that Trump really won in 2016 during the debate appears to have been the catalyst for the Coughing Crook to make things more public on Wednesday evening.

On domestic policy, Gabbard is just another Democrat socialist dedicated to wasting trillions of dollars every year on programs that have no chance of actually working. But on foreign and military policy, she is a DC Swamp heretic, someone whose reputation and career must be destroyed before she gains enough political influence and power to become an existential threat to the utterly corrupt way of life all the Swamp skunks and snakes have built for themselves.

Gabbard was on Tucker Carlson’s show Thursday night giving her side of this story. It’s a pretty strong interview and worth taking the 5 minutes to watch:

There is literally zero chance that Gabbard could ever become the nominee of the Democrat Party in 2020 – the Swamp rats who control the party now would rather destroy the party before they let that happen. But she is, at least on some matters, that rarest of rare animals in Washington today: A Democrat who is actually willing to tell the truth about the DC Swamp and the real nature of Hillary Clinton:

Image may contain: 1 person, text

For that alone, she deserves our respect.

That is all.

Hillary Clinton Goes After Tulsi Gabbard and Takes an Epic Beating

Today’s Campaign Update, Part III
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

ummmm…maybe the Fainting Felon should turn her slanders on a more passive target. – This is the best thing you will see today, trust me.

The Democrat/media smear machine is really afraid of Tulsi Gabbard, the representative from Hawaii who remains the only actual interesting person in the party’s presidential nominating race. As Gabbard herself pointed out in Wednesday night’s debate, the smear machine has been up and running at her for the past week:

“Not only that, but, the New York Times and CNN have also smeared veterans like myself for calling for an end to this regime change war. Just two days ago, the New York Times put out an article saying that I’m a Russian asset and an Assad apologist and all these different smears. This morning, a CNN commentator said on national television that I’m an asset of Russia. Completely despicable.”

The big concern at the smear machine is that, because Gabbard does not toe the party line on each and every issue – especially those related to international relations and military policy – she might decide to mount a third party candidacy after the Party ensures its nomination goes to one of the Marxists in the race, most likely to be Fauxcahontas.

Media smears from the two fakest news organizations on the planet not being enough to scare Tulsi off, party leaders obviously fed a script to the Coughing Crook to use during an appearance on Thursday night. There, the Grasping Grifter had this to say about Rep. Gabbard:

“I’m not making any predictions, but I think they’ve got their eye on somebody who is currently in the Democratic primary and are grooming her to be the third-party candidate,” Clinton said, speaking on a podcast with former Obama adviser David Plouffe. “She’s the favorite of the Russians.”

“They have a bunch of sites and bots and other ways of supporting her so far,” Clinton said.

Boy, did the Hacking Hag pick on the wrong target.

Obviously PO’d by Clinton’s idiotic and libelous remarks, Gabbard hit back Friday afternoon on Twitter, and boy, is it epic:

BAM! POW! OOF!

But wait, there’s more!

BOOM! KABLOOEY! YIKES!

But wait, there’s still more!!!

HOLY CRAP! SHOTS FIRED! OLD, COUGHING, HACKING, FAINTING, CORRUPT HAG DOWN!

Whew. That’s just brutal. And oh, so damn true.

Thank you, Rep. Gabbard, for being a Democrat willing to speak the truth about the single most corrupt political figure this nation has ever known.

Please, don’t stop now.

That is all.

Tuesday Produced a Cluster Boom in the Nation’s Capitol

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

Those loud noises you heard last night were bombshells dropping all over the nation’s capitol.  –  Every day the last four years has been a busy news day, but it’s hard to remember one as busy as Tuesday. Let’s review some of the action:

Get ready for Hillary III – She’s running, and no one should doubt it. Expect her formal announcement shortly after the Oct. 15 debate in Ohio. Here she is, talking about doing it:

Look, I know this is distasteful, but it’s pretty much inevitable at this point. After all, she no doubt sees her best shelter from looming prosecutions as coming from the corrupt media, which is protecting Quid Pro Joe with the ludicrous rationale that any Democrat running for the presidency is somehow immune to prosecution. You will see why she needs such protection in a moment. For now, just know you need to gird yourself for another year of the Grasping Grifter cackling, coughing and fainting on your TV screens as she mounts a third, and hopefully final, bid for the nation’s high office.

The Barr/Durham investigation expands its scope. – And now you know why the Fainting Felon will be tossing her hospital gown into ring soon. Based on what their investigations into the origins of the FBI/CIA illegal spying on the Trump Campaign and Trump Transition Team have revealed, the DOJ is now expanding this investigation to include a look into the origins of the Rosenstein/Comey/Mueller coup attempt that germinated in the early months of 2017.

Speaking of Robert Mueller, it appears he perjured himself in his congressional testimony a few months ago. –  The ex-American Gestapo Chief, er, “Special Counsel” told congress that when he met with President Trump a day before he was appointed to that position by Oily Rod Rosenstein, he was not interviewing for the FBI job. But now multiple people present that day are letting it be known that was at least Mueller’s pretense for being there that day:

“My understanding was I was not applying for the job,” Mueller said on July 24. “I was asked to give my input on what it would take to do the job.”

John Dowd, who served as the president’s attorney during the probe, ripped Mueller for meeting with Trump, calling it the “most dishonorable conduct I have ever witnessed.” He added, “Capt. Robert Mueller, USMC, sits in front of his commander-in-chief being interviewed for FBI director knowing he is going to investigate the president and never says a word.”

“Dishonorable Conduct” is Robert Mueller’s middle name.

White House finally sends its letter to Pelosi. – Readers of the Campaign Update knew this was coming last Thursday,  and the White House finally got around to sending it on Tuesday:

The White House outlined in a defiant eight-page letter to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and top Democrats on Tuesday why it will not participate in their “illegitimate and unconstitutional” impeachment inquiry, charging that the proceedings have run roughshod over congressional norms and the president’s due-process rights.

“President Trump and his administration reject your baseless, unconstitutional efforts to overturn the democratic process,” the letter stated. “Your unprecedented actions have left the president with no choice. In order to fulfill his duties to the American people, the Constitution, the Executive Branch, and all future occupants of the Office of the Presidency, President Trump and his administration cannot participate in your partisan and unconstitutional inquiry under these circumstances.”

Cool.

Turns out Ukraine actually revived its investigation into Hunter Biden’s pay for play operation this past January, seven months before the President’s phone call with Zelensky. – The great real reporter John Solomon laid that bombshell out on Sean Hannity’s show last night:

A newly unearthed document shows that Ukrainian officials had opened a new probe into the firm linked to Hunter Biden months before President Trump’s phone call with that country’s leader, Fox News contributor John Solomon reported late Tuesday.

Solomon said Tuesday on “Hannity” that the U.S. government knew Ukraine was planning to look again into activities at Burisma Holdings, an energy company that employed then-Vice President Joe Biden’s son as a member of its board of directors, early this year. The report is noteworthy because President Trump has been accused by Democrats of threatening in July to withhold foreign aid to Ukraine unless its new president pursued an investigation into the company and the younger Biden’s role there.

Of course, the fake news media will do everything it can to cover this inconvenient truth up, but the reality is that it completely destroys any notion that President Trump engaged in any sort of qui pro quo on his call with Zelensky.

All the President needs now is a good trial lawyer to lay his case out before the Senate should the House actually approve articles of impeachment, and hey, guess what? He has one.

Trey Gowdy will join the Trump defense team. – Many conservatives will have a problem with this, given their disappointment in Gowdy’s lack of results during his congressional probe of the Benghazi scandal several years ago. Like many members of congress, Gowdy gained a reputation for being all bark and no bite, as it were.  Then again, most people simply don’t understand how powerless a congressional committee really is in the face of an utterly corrupt Justice Department like the one run by Eric Holder and Loretta Lynch for Barack Obama.

So, you’ll see people bitching and moaning about that all day today, and that’s fine. Some folks just need to vent.

But here’s reality: Trey Gowdy, before he ran for congress, was one hell of a prosecutor. In fact, he was undefeated in that role. Remember also that he served on two key House Committees during the years when the DOJ/FBI/CIA cabal was attempting to fix the 2016 election and then mounting its Mueller-led coup d’etat attempt.

Gowdy knows the truth about all of that – he has already seen everything that Barr and Durham are currently investigating, and knows what they’re going to find. Do you think, knowing what he knows, that Gowdy would agree to join the effort to defend the President and give up that cushy job as a highly-paid contributor for Fox News if he did not know he will win the case?

This is a big deal. Yesterday was a real inflection point in this whole sham.

Boom.

And now we dance:

You seriously can’t make these people up, folks.

Chris Wallace and Chuck Todd Shame Themselves Protecting the DC Swamp

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

It’s like clockwork, folks, it really is.  – Here is the headline of the September 30 Campaign Update: “Winter is Coming, and More Fake Whistleblowers are Coming With it.”

Fast forward six days to Sunday, and guess what? A second fake whistleblower from the Intelligence Community has “come forward,” i.e., coordinated with Lawfare Alliance attorneys, the staff of the House Intelligence Committee and its Chairman, Bug-eyed Adam Schiff, to file another false complaint against the President of the United States. Just as we saw in last October’s lynching of Brett Kavanaugh, whenever one accusation has begun to lose its utility in moving public opinion, another comes forward.

If you think this is the last fake whistleblower Schiff and Lawfare have coached up on this dreadfully stupid coup d’etat effort, you are sadly mistaken. If anything, the pace of the complaint filings will speed up over time as their usefulness in brainwashing the public fades with each successive filing. That’s how it happened with Kavanaugh and that’s how it will happen in this latest coup attempt.

The first complaint had a useful life of roughly ten days before the coup plotters decided they needed another one out there to generate more blaring headlines and obnoxious talking head panels on CNN and MSNBC. This one will probably have a useful life of 5-7 days, the next one less than that. There is no real mystery here – the only real question left is whether the Creepy Porn Lawyer will try to bring forward a “witness” of his own in another failed attempt to cash in on the fake controversy, as he did in the Kavanaugh fiasco.

Lindsey Graham summed it all perfectly in a tweet:

Chuck Todd, Chris Wallace and the other useful idiots who host the Sunday morning fake news shows all did their parts to keep the sham going. Todd and Wallace and were especially animated and repugnant in rolling out the talking points of the Deep State coup plotters, which basically amount to ‘corruption of public office is ok if you’re a Democrat,’ and ‘if you declare yourself a candidate for the Democrat presidential nomination, you are immune from investigation.’

Expect the Pantsuit Princess and John Kerry to jump into the race soonest.

Here are clips of both Todd and Wallace going about their jobs as Democrat toadies, if you can stand to watch them:

The President himself responded to the TV networks’ DC Swamp protection racket as he usually does, on Twitter:

Everything the President says in those tweets is absolutely true. The problem, of course is that the truth conflicts with the longstanding traditions of corruption in the DC Swamp. The selling of high office is a tradition as old as Washington, DC itself, and the reason why many people seek to win those offices in the first place. Look at how fabulously wealthy the Clintons, Obamas, Bidens, Pelosis, Gores and so many others in both parties have become while supposedly holding jobs that pay $150k – $400k per year.

If you think those payoffs stop with the officeholders and don’t filter into our national news media as well, you obviously haven’t been watching the Sunday morning #fakenews shows recently. The whole town is your basic mob racket.

Once you understand how the DC Swamp works, everything the corruptors of our nation do makes perfect sense.

Chuck Todd is Right: The Basic Rules of our Democracy are Under Attack

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

“I don’t say this lightly, but let’s be frank: A national nightmare is upon us. The basic rules of our democracy are under attack from the President.” – In making that soap-opera-style hyperbolic remark on MSNBC on Friday, Democrat toady Chuck Todd is half right: The basic rules of our democracy are indeed under attack, and have been since 1992, when Bill and Hillary Clinton became the Democrat Party’s co-nominees for the presidency.

One of the “basic rules of our democracies,” one of the beliefs upon which our nation was founded, was that elected officials would by and large be people of good faith, and people who sought public service did so in the spirit of serving the nation they love. The founders knew that there would always be scoundrels among the political class, but they structured the Constitution and thus our society on the foundational belief that, in the end, most members of congress, presidents and senior executive branch officials would place the best interests of the country over and above their own personal ambitions for power.

The Clintons changed all of that. The Clintons turned the White House into a confidence game, an influence racket in which the Lincoln Bedroom was rented out to the highest bidder. They leveraged agencies like the IRS and the FBI into tools to track and attack their political enemies. At the end of their eight years at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave., they then parlayed their ongoing influence in Democrat Party politics into an even larger racket with the creation of their fake Foundation, leveraging it to its fullest capacity when Barack Obama paid them off by appointing the Pantsuit Princess as Secretary of State.

1992 was also the year when the Clintons began to transform the Democrat Party from a collection of politicians and staffers who sought to debate policy issues and win them on the merits to a collection of Saul Alinsky disciples who eschew any pretense at debate in favor of demonizing the opposition. Another basic rule that was foundational to our democracy was thus lost forever.

Another “basic rule of our democracy” used to be that the federal government was required to operate on a budget. But the Democrats have disposed of that one, too. In 2006, then-Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and San Fran Nan decided that the best way to continue bankrupting future generations of Americans and to keep federal spending rising was to refuse to engage in the process of passing actual budgetary authorization bills. Since that time, the federal government has operated on a neverending series of continuing resolutions (CRs). These CRs allow no real debate over spending. Instead, they simply take the previous year’s spending level and layer a predetermined percentage increase over the top of it.

In this way, the Democrats freed up all sorts of congressional time to allow their members to focus on what they love to do: Raise money and demonize the opposition.

Another “basic rule of our democracy” used to be that the Justice Department, FBI and other law enforcement agencies were to maintain an independence from the White House. Janet Reno destroyed all pretense to that principle on behalf of the Clintons, and it’s been downhill ever since. Barack Obama completed the utter and complete corruption of the FBI, which remains a raging dumpster fire of corruption and incompetence today with no relief in sight under the feckless Christopher Wray.

Democrats have also utterly corrupted the press. The founders considered what they called the fourth estate of our society so crucial that they enshrined freedom of the press in the very first amendment contained in the Bill of Rights. The role of the press as a “basic rule of our democracy” was to serve as the watchdog for the public interest, a tool of transparency that would speak truth to power and hold public officials of all parties accountable.

That’s all gone now. Toadies like Chuck Todd are nothing more than Democrat Party activists with $200 haircuts (Chuck obviously overpaid). Today’s national media establishment not only no longer speaks truth to power, it doesn’t speak truth to anyone, including itself. Every day is a new narrative, coordinated in advance with the Democrat Party, repeated ad nauseum by talking heads across all the broadcast networks and cable channels.

Opinion pieces that used to appear the Op/Ed sections of major newspapers have now migrated to the front pages under the guise of being “news” stories. Editors at the New York Times and Washington Post now openly brag about their publications’ efforts to brainwash the public with major themed propaganda campaigns. Journalistic standards once held sacrosanct, like having at least two or even three named sources for any news story, have been utterly abandoned as outlets rush to get thinly-sourced or fictitiously-sourced pieces up on their web pages to raise their click counts.

The very same Democrat Party and media establishment who spent three years obsessing over a “Steele Dossier” funded by the DNC and Clinton Campaign and compiled by foreign agents from the UK, Ukraine, Russia, Italy and Australia now screams that seeking information about corruption by a former vice president from any foreign country amounts to an impeachable offense.

Chuck Todd is one of the head cheerleaders in that effort to ignore and destroy the “basic rules of our democracy.” Those rules have been under attack for a long time, and whenever their efforts to destroy those rules fails, the Democrats and their corrupt media toadies simply double down on the destruction.

This second civil war that has been mounted over the last three years by the Democrats and the corrupt media is not a shooting war, but it is just as dangerous to our national survival. Sadly, the utter and complete corruption on the left is so consolidated and unshakable now that it is hard to imagine how we can possibly reach anything other than a disastrous conclusion.

That is all.

Bernie is Toast, Biden is Close

Today’s Campaign Update, Part II
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Bernie Sanders’ presidential hopes are over, although he may not realize it yet. – The Commie had to undergo surgery to implant multiple stents into his 78 year-old heart, and has cancelled a bunch of planned campaign events over the next couple of weeks so he can recover. Although this can be a fairly minor procedure for a younger person – I had one placed into my left ventricular artery at age 55 and was back to full speed within a few weeks – it can be far more difficult for a person of Sanders’ advanced age.

But the speed of his recovery doesn’t even matter here: Sanders was already finding it impossible to move his polling numbers much above 15% due in part to the impression among many Democrats that he is just too old for the job he seeks. Suffering a heart attack in the midst of the campaign – and yes, if he was having chest pains, any doctor will tell you that he did indeed suffer a heart attack – will only serve to build that perception among many more voters, who will now begin to cast their eyes in the direction of the other, younger unquestioned Marxist in the race, Fauxcahontas.

The near-certain outcome will be that we will see Sanders’ polling numbers drop into single digits over the next few weeks, and a commensurate rise in support for Little Mouth Always Running.

Speaking of the Fake Indian running, check out the greeting she received from Nevada voters when her plane landed out there on Wednesday:

Not exactly the reception that Princess I’m Gonna Take Your Wampum expected. But that’s the price we can expect more and more Democrats to pay for their support for San Fran Nan’s sham impeachment circus as Trump supporters become increasingly engaged in public activism and protest.

Meanwhile, the campaign of Quid Pro Joe Biden, the nation’s Unfrozen Caveman Senator, is now hanging by a thread. While Biden’s foundering campaign did not quite meet my prediction that his lead would have disappeared by October 1, he sure came close.

In fact, Lieawatha actually now holds the lead in 4 of the 7 most recent polls taken in the race, according to Real Clear Politics, and she and Biden are in a statistical tie in a fifth poll taken by Emerson. In fact, only one of those polls was even partially conducted in October, and that one – by The Economist/YouGov – shows the Fake Indian holding a 6 point lead. The two clear outlier polls, both showing Biden with 11 point leads, were taken entirely in September.

Given that reality, I think I’ll declare half a victory on this particular prediction, made back in April when Crazy Uncle Joe kicked off his campaign with a near-30 point lead. There is now little doubt that his lead will disappear entirely when the first polls conducted entirely in October are published over the next two weeks.

For the  rest of the field, just a few trends to note:

  • Kamala Harris is on life support. She announced early this week that she is shaking up her staff, but that won’t help. The candidate is the problem with her campaign. She is just a horrible candidate, and shuffling the deck chairs on the Titanic won’t change that.
  • Preacher Pete is your basic 6% candidate now, and his trendline has been essentially static since June. His consistent ZERO support from African American voters means he has no real chance in the race for the nomination, and that won’t change. The only reason for him to hang around is in the hopes of becoming arm candy for Fauxcahontas in the general election.
  • Andrew Yang had a $10 million fundraising haul in the third quarter, which places him in the top 4 in this pitiful field. He had one exciting moment when he came in at 8% in the Emerson poll last week, but that’s a clear statistical anomaly given that he is at 2 or 3 in every other poll. Another potential vice presidential nominee, but no chance to win the big prize.
  • Cory Booker, Julian Castro, Irish Bob O’Rourke and Amy Klobuchar are all dead as door nails, but they will linger through the next debate in mid-October in the vain hopes of having some breakthrough moment on that crowded stage.
  • The only other declared candidate worth mentioning is Tulsi Gabbard, who had a chance to be the only actual interesting person on stage when she initially came out in opposition to Pelosi’s Impeachment Circus. But she lost that not even 48 hours later when she reversed her posture. Thus, she’ll be just another hack with no chance of truly distinguishing herself in that next debate.

Then there’s the Pantsuit Princess, the thus-far-undeclared candidate in this race. The Fainting Felon has raised eyebrows by putting herself back in the public spotlight with a series of speaking events this week, raising the spectre that she might decide to become a late entrant into the campaign season as Biden falters.

From a pure self-defense standpoint, that appeared to make some sense late last week, as the corrupt news media assisted Biden by claiming the President’s rhetoric about Biden’s clear pay-for-play selling of his vice presidential office related to Ukraine, China and other countries amounted to a Trump attack on a political rival rather than an effort to identify clear corruption. But that particular line of BS has very quickly lost its utility as this week has progressed and the damning video of Biden bragging about engaging in his clear bullying of the Ukraine government on behalf of his ne’er-do-well son gained traction with the public.

Would the Grasping Grifter attempt a similar tactic, declaring herself to be a candidate to try to give herself political cover against the increasingly aggressive investigation led by Attorney General William Barr? She might, but she would fail even more miserably than Biden is failing with that line of BS.

Only time will tell. I still think her plan is to wait it out and hope to become the party’s savior at a hung convention.

Given all of that, here are my updated odds on who the eventual Democrat nominee will be:

Fauxcahontas – 3 to 1

Someone not currently declared – 3 to 2

Quid Pro Joe – 20 to 1

The Commie – 50 to 1

Preacher Pete – 100 to 1

Kamala – 100 to 1

Andrew Yang – 100 to 1

The rest of the declared field – DEAD

That is all.
