A National Reckoning is Coming on Russia Collusion

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

The great media retrenchment begins. – So, what if, as the rampant speculation around Washington and facts of the matter indicate, Gestapo Chief, er, “Special Counsel” Robert Mueller finds there was no collusion between President Donald Trump and Russia? ABC’s Terry Moran had this to say on his network’s “This Week” program yesterday:

“That’s a reckoning for progressives and Democrats who hoped that Mueller would essentially erase the 2016 election. It’s a reckoning for the media. It’s a reckoning around the country if in fact after all this time there was no collusion.”

I reckon he’s right. Which, come to think of it, is probably the first time I’ve reckoned that about the veteran news-faker.

And so, the great media retrenchment on this fantasy play begins in earnest. Moran’s statement – no doubt written well ahead of time and vetted with his ABC superiors before it was recited from memory on the set – is very carefully worded. Note how he separates the “progressives and Democrats who hoped that Mueller would essentially erase the 2016 election” from “the media,” as if they are two separate entities. Laughable, that.

The “media” – and ABC News is among the very worst offenders of the lot – has been deeply intertwined with the Democrats in this Russia Collusion fairy tale since day one. It is now a matter of public record that many fake journalists were involved in helping to set up the entire charade, carefully coordinating the timing of articles with Democrat strategists, as well as the messages that would be repeated on-air continuously and echoed throughout social media.

The truth today is as it always was from day 1: The contacts that the Trump Campaign and Transition Team had with various Russians were the sort that are typical for any viable presidential campaign. Even more to the point of proving the DOJ/FBI conspiracy to prevent Trump from winning in 2016, the only contacts with anyone outside of the norm were those that were with people like longtime FBI/CIA operative Stefan Halper, which were literally set up by that Deep State Cabal via what they called “Operation Crossfire Hurricane.”

Meanwhile, the Pantsuit Princess and her campaign were having all sorts of contacts that are not the standard kind at all. Like, for example, spending $10 million or so to have a British agent develop a fake “Trump Dossier” and working with well-known Russian spies in the process.

Remember all that?  Yeah, Terry Moran and his fellow news-fakers in the national media have done their dead-level best to ignore the actual facts involved in this fantasy play, choosing instead to constantly repeat the daily talking points approved by the DNC on the matter. But some of us have long memories.

You can expect Moran’s colleagues in the fake news media to embark on their own retrenchment campaigns this week, as they see the handwriting on the wall, and the Mueller Witch Hunt winds down to its inevitable close. But the reckoning will come, because most Americans aren’t nearly as stupid as people like Terry Moran assume they are.

Hey, at least most 16 year-olds are legal citizens, so we got that going for us. – In case you missed it, Democrats in the House of Representatives attempted last Wednesday to lower the legal voting age to … wait for it … 16!

Yes, friends, Democrats are so focused on obtaining political power that a majority of them in the U.S. House are willing to give voting rights to children whose main daily concern is where they misplaced their pimple medicine. The amendment failed by a margin of 126-305, but among Democrats alone, the vote was 125-108. So you can see where this is all headed.

That vote came two days before House Democrats voted as a solid bloc to confer voting rights to illegal aliens in communities, like San Francisco, where local officials have approved such dilution of the votes of actual citizens.

Again, as I’ve written 100 times before, Democrats’ preference for open borders and lax voting laws has literally nothing at all to do with things like compassion or human rights. It simply has to do with what always drives every policy position the Democrat Party takes, which is the acquisition and maintenance of political power.

The reason you see videos from 8-10 years ago of today’s Democrat supporters of open borders – Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, Chuck Schumer, Dianne Feinstein, and on and on and on – haranguing against illegal immigration is because those were the talking points dictated to them at the time by the leaders of organized labor. But about the time Obama got elected to the presidency, the Democrat Party made the calculation that organized labor, as a voting bloc, was dying off, and that it could ultimately mine far more votes from all these illegal immigrants, either via voter fraud or, ultimately, conferring voting rights on them.

So the Democrat Party, as a whole, suddenly threw organized labor off the boat and started pushing open borders policies. It took organized labor until the 2016 elections to figure out it was the date that had been stood up for the prom, but its shifting votes towards the GOP side played a large role in Trump’s ability to carry states like Pennsylvania, Michigan and Ohio.

Today, we now see the Democrat Party making the very same political calculation on the Jewish vote, which it has always dominated. It is now quite obvious that Democrat leaders have made the calculation that its open borders policies will inevitably mean that Muslims will soon outnumber Jews in America, and thus, there will be more Muslim votes to be mined.

Which is why you saw the Dems completely unable to pass a simple resolution to condemn Ilhan Omar’s constant anti-Semitic hate speech last week.

None of this is hidden, folks. They’re doing this all out in the open, if you just pay attention.

That is all.

Hillary Clinton, Ilhan Omar – Quien es Mas Malo?

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

The Pantsuit Princess makes it official. Sort of. Ok, not really. – The Grasping Grifter is back in the news this morning with the word that she has officially made it officially official that she’s officially not officially running for the Democrat nomination in 2020, and that’s official.

Wait, no it’s not – it’s not official at all. Here is what she actually told a local reporter with Channel 12 in Westchester, New York: “I’m not running, but I’m going to keep on working and speaking and standing up for what I believe.”

So what does that tell us? Nothing. Not one damn thing. That she’s “not running” right now is manifestly true: She has made no formal announcement, has not officially formed a campaign committee, and thus is certainly “not running” today.

By the same standards, Joe Biden is “not running” today, but we all know he’s most likely going to run. Irish Bob O’Rourke is also “not running” right now, but he made it crystal clear last Friday that he will be soon. Andrew Cuomo is “not running” today, but he probably will be running in a week or two. And on, and on and on it goes.

You have to understand how the Clinton mind works. Basically, the Fainting Felon said nothing new at all in her interview that is being ballyhooed all over the 24-hour cable fake news networks this morning. She just did what a Clinton always does, and prevaricated, and the reporter fell for it.

The Hacking Hag’s non-denial denial came a day after she had pulled out her trusty, cringe-worthy, fake southern accent in a speech down in ol’ Alabama on Sunday. Here it is, in case you missed it:

The last time she pulled that little trick out of her hat, she was running for president. Just sayin’.

By the way, in her Westchester interview, she had this to say:

“I’m not going anywhere. What’s at stake in our country, the kind of things that are happening right now are deeply troubling to me. And I’m also thinking hard about how do we start talking and listening to each other again? We’ve just gotten so polarized.”

She said that one day after she told that Alabama audience that Stacey Abrams should be governor of Georgia right now because GOP winner Brian Kemp won through massive voter fraud. She said this lacking the slightest shred of evidence to back her up.

She has also spent the last 28 months refusing to accept the results of the 2016 presidential election, in which she was trounced by Donald Trump.

Gosh, so hard to imagine why our nation has “gotten so polarized.” So unexpected.

The Pantsuit Princes has tons of competition, but she remains the very worst person living in America today.

Aw, man, what a loss. Um, who is he again? – Here’s a guy who knows how to make it really official:  Senator Jeff Merkley is not running for president, and he put out a video on social media making the announcement in no uncertain terms. I know you’re all devastated.

Ok, who’s Jeff Merkley, you ask? Well, I had to look him up myself. Turns out he’s a very undistinguished Democrat from Oregon. Which by default means he’s just another socialist nitwit, and the Democrat field is already filled with them. So good riddance.

Worst person in America? Ilhan Omar says “hold my beer!” – One of the darkhorses in the race among Democrats to succeed the Coughing Crook as the worst person in America is, of course, the raging anti-Semite Dem Rep. from Minnesota, Ilhan Omar.

Omar tosses out anti-Semitic tropes with roughly the same frequency that Joe Biden creepily fondles other peoples’ wives and daughters. Omar’s latest run-in with polite society, Washington D.C.-style, was to accuse another Democrat congresswoman – who also happens to be Jewish – of having “dual loyalties” to two different countries.

One can only wonder if Ms. Omar understands that the Democrat Minority Leader in the Senate, Chuck Schumer, happens to maintain dual citizenship in both the U.S. and Israel. Someone should at least inform her of the basics here.

Anyway, her fellow Democrats are going to pretend to “rebuke” her today with a – gasp! – congressional resolution condemning Antisemitism. This will mark the second time the House has taken such an action ostensibly directed at the congresswoman from Minnesota.

The first problem is this: The resolution makes no mention whatsoever of Ilhan Omar. Imagine that.

The second problem is that Nancy Pelosi continues to allow this clear anti-Semite to sit on the House Foreign Affairs Committee, a plum committee assignment of which she is clearly undeserving.

So, this is all just more Kabuki theater from the cynical Democrats, a meaningless non-punishment by a bunch of craven politicians who are simply afraid that Omar’s big mouth might cause them to start losing Jewish voters in 2020.

This is your Democrat Party in action. Aren’t you Democrats proud?

That is all.

The Week in Review: Anti-Semite Dems, High Treason and Jussie Smollett

The Campaign Update Week in Review
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

The Week in Review, courtesy of the @GDBlackmon Twitter Feed…

James Woods started the week out with a tribute to the Democrats’ “Green New Deal,” and things only got smellier from there:

If you aren’t following @mad_liberals on Twitter, you’re missing out on a ton of fun:

That time Minnesota Cong. Ilhan Omar apologized for being a raging anti-Semite, but really didn’t apologize at all:

If only we had an education system that actually educated anyone…:

Hey, I had no idea so many Virginia Democrats went to Rice University back in the day!:

Summing up the “competing” rallies between the POTUS and a loser in a senate race out in El Paso Monday night.:

The perfect endorsement for today’s Democrat Party.:

Why not? All the other communists are doing it.:

Kamala Harris is slowly morphing into Hillary Clinton before our very eyes. No wonder she’s become CNN’s chosen child.:

In actual real news from Tuesday…:

The inevitable outcome of the Democrats’ war on masculinity.:

Here I put college students’ current infatuation with AOC into proper historical context.:

Well, God Bless Texas, then.:

Speaking of Texas and energy…:

Seriously, is there any true thing Alexandria Ocasio Cortez actually does know? It is truly stunning that a human being can hold a college degree and be so breathtakingly ignorant.:

High treason news broke out all over the place on Thursday, and your fake news media scrambled to portray it as just a bunch of patriotic FBI guys doing their best to protect the nation from the evil Orange Man. Because of course they did. *sigh*:

Speaking of faking the news, the folks at Politico seem to be ramping up their efforts in that competition in recent weeks.:

Then this happened…:

…and the nitwit who led the effort opposing 25,000 new jobs and tens of billions in annual economic impact celebrated, because what else would a raging ignoramus do?:

As Jussie Smollett’s obvious hoax began officially falling apart, Chuck Ross accurately predicted the way all the fake journalists who did everything they could to promote the effort to smear every Trump supporter in the nation would respond.:

This explains how the Enemy Within, Ilhan Omar, got her seat in congress.:

Quick! Somebody load a chopper with food and get it up there!:

Why, it almost seems as if the fake news media is trying to mislead the public on Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s true health status. Go figure.:

From our Some Things Never Change file…:

Enemies of the people, plain and simple.

That is all.

As Absurd as it is, We Must Take This “Green New Deal” Very Seriously

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

Now that we’ve all had a chance to read Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s “Green New Deal” and recover from our hysterical laughter at the utter absurdity of it all…: – Make no mistake about it – this “Green New Deal”, as ridiculous and childishly-written as its talking points document is, represents a deadly serious threat to our nation’s future. Deadly serious.

The nation’s modern history is filled with example after example of the political left being laughed out of the room when rolling out similarly idiotic proposals, only to ultimately see those very same proposals be enacted into law years later, after our education system and fake news media had brainwashed another generation of children and young adults to believe it’s just a peachy idea. The best example is nationalized healthcare: The Pantsuit Princess was the target of harsh ridicule from all parts of society when she rolled out her byzantine plan for a government takeover of 1/7th of the national economy in 1993-94. But 16 short years later, America’s Worst Mistake – Barack Hussein Obama – signed a very similar plan into law.

Twenty years ago, virtually no one believed we’d ever see young people with male genitals and musculature be allowed to steal athletics trophies from young girls, but today that is happening all over the nation, and anyone who speaks up in defense of the young girls is demonized by the news media and Democrat politicians. Just a decade ago, those who predicted that we’d soon be seeing “women’s groups” like NOW remain studiously silent as radical Muslims were allowed by state and local governments to practice Sharia Law and female genital mutilation were ridiculed as being alarmist and “racist”. But today that is happening in many parts of the country with the full approval and sanction of the Democrat Party and these “women’s groups”.

Just a handful of years ago, anyone who predicted that a Democrat Speaker of the House would refuse to hold a vote on a pro-Israel congressional resolution for fear of offending the large and growing anti-Semitic segment of her caucus would have been laughed out of the room. But that is happening right now, in real time.

So if you think the Democrats aren’t deadly serious about this “Green New Deal,” you should back up and think again. An old, 43-year veteran of congress like Ed Markey didn’t sign on as AOC’s Straw Man (“if I only had a brain”) for her walk down the fake environmental Yellow Brick Road just for fun.

Ed Markey doesn’t even know what fun is anymore. He’s nearing the end of his time on this earth, and he has worked to turn the United States into a socialist/fascist state for his entire life.  If you think he is not serious about seizing your land and assets and printing 40 Trillion dollars in order to devalue our currency and turn America into just another third-world country, then you haven’t been paying attention to his career to date, and you must have also slept through the Obama years.

Yes, the “Green New Deal” is utterly, completely absurd, an unworkable fantasy concocted by demented and childish minds. Yes, as I pointed out last night, the plan rips the mask off of the true fascist nature of the global Green movement, but that global Climate Scam has made steady inroads into every aspect of our daily lives for 50 years now. Did you think they were going to just stop at some point?

We all need to remember that those demented and childish – and yes, evil in many cases – minds really believe their own bullsh*t.  These are minds that have been completely brainwashed into believing that the abject horse manure they’re slinging out into the public domain this week is going to … wait for it… save the world!  Literally.

So yes, by all means, laugh at these nitwits today and bathe them in the ridicule they have so richly earned. But also take them very seriously and remember that they – not you – own our nation’s education system and news media. No matter how crazy you know their ideas to be, remember that they will continue to deploy every asset at their disposal to brainwash the current and every succeeding generation of American school children into believing all of this nonsense until they reach that critical mass, that point in time when they will be able to force it all into official government policy.

In 1995, a very wise man told me that “all the pinks and reds have gone green.” Yesterday, all those pinks and reds shed their green facade for all to see. In doing so, they reveal that they, like Hillary Clinton in 1993, think they have already reached that critical mass and are convinced they can now reveal their true nature without paying a political price.

Laughing at them and ridiculing them is not enough: We must stop being timid and become bold in opposing them. Be bold, for the sake of your children and grandchildren.

That is all.

Israeli Doctors Cure Cancer: Can They Cure the Democrat Party?

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

It’s like a recurring cancer. – The Pantsuit Princess may have been out of mind for the past couple of months, but don’t be fooled – she’s just been lying dormant, awaiting her next chance to begin metastasizing across the body politic.

According to CNN – yes, I know, that’s like saying “according to Mother Goose”, but bear with me here – the Grasping Grifter has been telling friends and colleagues to keep their powder dry on supporting any of the myriad other candidates already in the race, because she “hasn’t ruled out” making yet another run for the Democrat presidential nomination in 2020.  Oh, goody.

My opinion is that this is just more fake news from CNN. The Fainting Felon’s time has finally passed, her career effectively ended when the DNC voted to deny its so-called “super delegates” a vote on the first ballot at the 2020 nominating convention. The Coughing Crook has never been interested in getting into a race she can’t rig, knowing she is personally too toxic to win on a level playing field.

But hey, I could be wrong – it wouldn’t be the first time. So, keep an eye out and if you see a sudden run on hospital gowns and Robitussin, then you’ll know she’s putting together a wardrobe and medicine cabinet for one final grab at the golden ring.

If she does run, maybe these guys can cure that, too. – This does not come from CNN, so it could be real.  The Jerusalem Post reported on Monday that a team of Israeli scientists believe they have developed the world’s first real, generic cure for cancers of all types:

“We believe we will offer in a year’s time a complete cure for cancer,” said Dan Aridor, of a new treatment being developed by his company, Accelerated Evolution Biotechnologies Ltd. (AEBi), which was founded in 2000 in the ITEK incubator in the Weizmann Science Park. AEBi developed the SoAP platform, which provides functional leads to very difficult targets.

I don’t know what half of that means, but it sure sounds good, and I’m hoping it can not only be applied to the Pantsuit Princess but the Democrat Party as a whole, since it is just filled with cancerous candidates these days.

The latest Democrat cancer on our society comes from California, because of course it does. Its name is “Kamala Harris” and it is the female clone of America’s Worst Mistake, Barack Hussein Obama.

Like Obama in 2008, Harris is the CNN choice to be the Democrat nominee for 2020, and, just two days after she announced her candidacy, the fake news network awarded her with her own personal “townhall”. There, she was peppered for an hour with softball questions like “where did you get that dress?” and “why are you so darn good looking?”

Ok, she wasn’t asked those things, but she might as well have been.

Like America’s Worst Mistake, who got his association with the Rev. Wright out to the public early so his media supporters could quickly bury it, Harris got her own dirty laundry out there early. Her ex-boyfriend, former San Francisco Mayor Willie Brown, gave an interview bare hours after Harris announced her candidacy (this was neither an accident nor coincidence) to say, essentially, ‘yeah, we had an affair, and yeah, I set her entire political career up because of it, so what?’

So what, indeed? After all, that’s exactly the sort of personal background item Democrat voters have proved time and time again that they just love in their fraudulent presidential candidates.

If you expect anyone in our fake news media to dwell upon the utter fraud of Harris’s claims to have broken some sort of “glass ceiling” (sleeping with your mentor for career advancement doesn’t really qualify, after all), think again.

Here’s how it’s actually going to go:  Now that the Usual fake news Suspects have filed perfunctory reports on Brown’s comments, they will drop that story like a hot potato, declare it to be “old news” and not just demonize but attempt to literally destroy the lives of anyone who tries to raise the matter in the future. Because that’s what our fake news media is and does.

CNN now has its candidate in the race, and that means Irish Bob O’Rourke had better announce his candidacy pretty quick, or his opening could close. Irish Bob had the New York Times in his pocket throughout his run for the senate vs. Ted Cruz last year, and would no doubt have the corrupt newspaper of fake record planted there again like a good little pet hamster if he announces soon.

But the time has come for him to poop or get off the proverbial pot, because the fake editors and fake reporters at the Times aren’t going to just sit in the corner forever waiting for their most-desired 2020 date to ask them for a dance.

At this point, it’s hard to see what Irish Bob is waiting for. After all, he has live-streamed his tonsils, leaked the video of his playing a Ramones song while wearing a sheep suit and questioned the ongoing viability of the U.S. Constitution: What other qualifications for office does a typical Democrat presidential nominee even need?

Go, Irish Bob, Go.  The New York Times is waiting for its turn to dance the fake news waltz.

*sigh*

That is all.

A Separation is Coming for Our Nation – Will it be Peaceful?

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

This is a good morning to just ruminate on the state of the nation.

Way back in 1994, when I was writing for a local newspaper in Texas, I wrote a piece about how dangerous it was for the future of our country that those on the political left, led by Saul Alinsky disciples Bill and Hillary Clinton, were in the process of destroying the entire nature of the Democrat Party.

Prior to the elevation of the Clintons, the Democrat Party had been a party that was basically a hybrid of a true “liberal” philosophy on national security and international policy matters (i.e., fairly strong on defense with an aggressive promotion of American priorities in international dealings) and a “socialist” party focused on redistribution of the wealth on the margins, designed mainly to provide what they called a “safety net” to provide for those incapable of providing for themselves.

But, with the elevation of the flower children of the 1960s into leadership positions in our nation’s academia establishment in the 1980s, this all began to change. As our country’s education establishment radicalized and went about filling millions of minds full of mush with their radical notions, the Clintons saw this as an opportunity to move the country to a more pure form of socialism, and to deploy the Saul Alinsky Rules for Radicals tactics in support of that effort.

This all gave birth to Hillary Clinton’s failed, almost comical effort to nationalize the nation’s healthcare industry, and to the beginnings of the death actual political debate in our nation. As the Pantsuit Princess pursued her radical plan, those opposed to her became not just political opponents to be debated in the arena of ideas, but outright enemies to be portrayed as literal evil figures who want to kill fellow Americans.

Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals consists of 13 rules for the destruction of an enemy, not the conduct of political debate, and the last of them reads as follows:

“Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it.”

This is how the nation’s children had already by and large been taught to think about “big business”, “Republicans” and “conservatives” in general since the 1970s, and it is the main principle the Clintons and their spokespeople like James Carville, Paul Begala and Ann Lewis brought into the public arena as their main tactic. Republicans like Bob Dole and Newt Gingrich were no longer described as simply being wrong in a public policy sense, they were literally to be demonized and castigated on the Sunday morning talk shows as being the incarnations of Lucifer and Beelzebub in modern times.

Dirt from their backgrounds was collected and leaked to the rising numbers of mainstream media journalists who had come out of communications schools over the previous 15-20 years and who were willing to go to print or on-air with that dirt at times of the Democrat Party’s choosing.  This effort to collect dirt on enemies was what generated the scandal about Hillary illegally obtaining the “raw FBI files” on more than 1,000 political opponents, a scandal strategically dealt with by the utterly corrupt Justice Department led by Janet Reno.

Of course, once it embarked on this course and allowed it to fully take hold, the Democrat Party could never go back, which is what I wrote in that 1994 piece. The deployment of Alyinskyism is like a cancer that metastasizes within an organism – if not cut out early enough, its spread ultimately becomes irreversible and kills the host.

Had the 1996 presidential election gone the other way, the Democrat Party might have been saved – there were still enough leaders in the party at that time who truly believed in America and might have been able to retake the party and steer it away from its destructive course. But, just as they nominated the milquetoast and ineffectual Mitt Romney in 2012, Republicans in 1996 nominated the milquetoast and ineffectual Bob Dole, thus sealing the Democrat Party’s – and the nation’s – fate.

The increasingly-radicalized news media cheered.

And so it is that here we sit today, in early 2019, and the news media and Democrat Party have become completely indistinguishable from one another. Not only has the notion of actual political “debate” disappeared from the public arena, the entire notion of real, actual “news” has vanished from our nation’s airwaves and steadily disappearing newsprint.

As noted in yesterday’s Campaign Update, the jointly-determined Democrat/fake news media narrative is all we have left. That narrative dictates that Republicans and conservatives in general are evil, non-human beasts who are to be, in the words of Alinsky, “chosen, frozen, personalized and polarized.”

But, as we have seen over the past few years, this principle is not limited to the politicians, but to anyone who supports them, and now has even been extended to the children of parents who allow them to wear caps and t-shirts that contain a simple campaign slogan that talks about wanting to make their country great again. Indeed, the Democrats and their media agents have since 2016 consciously made an effort to demonize the 80 percent of mainland America that lies between the two coasts. The presence of Twitter, Facebook and other social media to serve as echo chambers for all of this divisiveness has only served as accelerants.

This is where the Clintons and their disciples have brought us. Electing the even more-radical Barack Obama to the presidency was seen as “progress” for our society’s destructors, and now the Democrat Party presents us with an array of choices for 2020 who make Obama and his unending efforts to divide the nation along racial-, gender- and any other lines he could think of on a daily basis look tame by comparison.

One of those 2020 hopefuls, Irish Bob O’Rourke – who the fake media wants you to believe is just like John F. Kennedy – openly questioned whether the U.S. Constitution is still relevant a few days ago, and no one in our fake media even blinked. I’m pretty sure JFK never questioned the applicability of the Constitution.

How do we come back from this?  How does our nation absorb more than a quarter century of one major political party willingly converting itself into a degradation mob, a conversion that has now absorbed virtually our entire media establishment?

The answer probably is, we can’t. If you think these people can be reasoned with to see the error of their ways, well, there are no words for you. How could anyone watch what they all conspired to do to Brett Kavanaugh, and still harbor such hopes?  How can anyone observe what they’ve been doing to a bunch of innocent high school kids the past 3 days, and still believe they are somehow redeemable?

The answer, pretty clearly now to anyone who is paying attention, must be that they aren’t. They aren’t redeemable, they refuse to be reasoned with, and that means that this is not salvageable.

Ordinary Americans see all of this happening – it has become impossible not to see it in recent years – and wonder what to do about it? The election of Donald Trump was largely a reaction to this phenomenon. But that outcome has only created focused and increasingly violent reaction from the radicals.

It make take another quarter century – by which time this writer will probably be long gone – but at some point the non-radicals who occupy the 80% of this nation out in “flyover country” will be left by the radicals with no choice but to either submit the will of hopeless ignoramuses like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez or find a way to separate from them.

At that point, the question will become whether or not the Alinskyites in the Democrat/fake media establishment will allow the separation to happen peaceably. Given their history, how can anyone believe the answer to that question will be anything other than a very hostile “no”?

That is all.

Will the Media Ever Report the Real Story About the Government Shutdown?

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

What ever happened to Matt Drudge? – The blaring, all caps, bold-faced headlines atop the Drudge Report landing page this morning read “SHUTDOWN TURNS NIGHTMARE” and GOVT PARALYZED”. 

My goodness, you mean to say that, here on Day 26 of the longest partial federal government fake “shutdown” ever, we’re finally starting to see major detrimental impacts to not just the government itself, but also to the public at large? That’s obviously what Matt Drudge wants you to believe.

The trouble is, when you click on those headlines to read the stories behind them, that is not the narrative you will find. Not at all. Take the “SHUTDOWN TURNS NIGHTMARE” story first.  Click on that shock header and you are taken to an Associated Press story with a similarly-alarmist header that reads in slightly smaller, non-caps letters: No. of no-show airport security screeners soars in shutdown”.

My goodness, it “soars”? Boy, that must mean half of the TSA airport security agents aren’t showing up for work, right?  Surely, all of the nation’s airports must be in lockdown and air travel grounded to a halt as a result.  Right?  Well, RIGHT?as Drudge would ask it.

Um, no. If you bother to read all the way into the 2nd paragraph of the typically-slanted AP story, you see this sentence: “No-shows among screeners jumped Sunday and again Monday, when the Transportation Security Administration reported a national absence rate of 7.6 percent compared with 3.2 percent on a comparable day a year ago.” The emphasis added there is mine.

That’s right, Matt Drudge thinks it’s a “NIGHTMARE” that 7.6 percent of TSA airport agents are calling in sick. Folks, a typical flu epidemic results in a higher absentee rate than that.

Oh, but the AP didn’t stop there. Their reporter managed to find the perfect air traveler who was willing to say that “It’s chaos out here.” So, why is it “chaos” out there, according to one Vincent Smith, the air traveler in question? “This line, I’ve been here about 15 minutes and it has moved 2 feet.” Oh, golly, welcome to Atlanta Hartsfield Airport on a Monday, dude.

But it just gets better in this fake story.  Here’s another passage halfway down the page:  “Delta Air Lines, the dominant carrier in Atlanta, and other airlines said they were advising passengers to get to the airport at least two hours before domestic flights and three hours before international trips.”  You don’t say.

Here’s what the AP doesn’t tell you:  Delta and every other U.S. airline have been advising passengers do exactly that since 9/12/2001. Every frequent air traveler in America has heard that exact advice 1,000 times in the last 18 years, and most of us studiously ignore it, because it has always been fake advice. But hey, maybe this time, 26 days into this fake partial government “shutdown,” it’s real. There’s a first time for everything.

Ok, that’s enough on that fake story.  Let’s now click on the Drudge alarmist header that reads GOVT PARALYZED”.  Note that this one is not only all-caps, bolded and in a huge font, but is also in italics, so Matt Drudge wants you to believe this one is really, really, REALLY terrible, possibly the end of the world for all of us.  He wants you to believe that our entire federal government is not just impacted, it is PARALYZED by this fake, partial government shutdown that has 1 out of 14 of TSA agents – GASP!!!! – calling in sick.

So, you click through and what do you find? A story from several fake journalists at the fake Washington Post recycling the narrative that President Trump and congress can’t reach a deal to re-open the fraction of the government that has been sort of, partially “closed” for the last 26 days.

Oh.

It’s your standard WaPo fake story:  Everything is President Trump’s fault, no mention of the fact that many of the intransigent Democrats who have offered zero compromise in 26 days vacationed with 109 lobbyists in Puerto Rico at taxpayer expense over the weekend, then the standard segue into 300 words about Russia. There is literally no actual “news” in this story at all.

But Matt Drudge wants you to believe that it is the most earth-shattering story of this day, January 15, 2019.

Hey, when is someone going to write the real “news” story on this fake government shutdown, which is that, here we are, 26 days into it, and the biggest impact on the public at large that the AP can find is some whiny jackass at Atlanta Hartsfield Airport who is having to wait in line maybe 15 minutes longer than he normally would when travelling out of that particular location?

Think about it: We had 800,000 federal workers missing a paycheck on Monday, more than half of whom are furloughed, and that’s the biggest impact anyone can find? What in the hell do all those people do every day? Why do the taxpayers keep having to fund hundreds of thousands of expensive jobs that provide no public benefit or impact? And if you, like 98% of our fake news media, want to blame something on the evil Orange Man, why isn’t anyone in the Trump Administration using this as an opportunity to identify government waste and invite most if not all of these furloughed workers to make their furloughs permanent?

Isn’t that the real story here?  When is someone going to write that one?

Wait, I guess I just did. Somehow, I don’t think that story will be getting linked at the Drudge Report anytime soon.  Doesn’t fit the narrative, you know.

Oh, hey, another Democrat wasting her time running for President. – This one would be New York Senator Kirsten Gillibrand, whose time came and went four years ago and she didn’t realize it.  Or, more accurately, she lacked the courage to take on the Clintons.

Four years ago, she was the far-left (well, far-left for four years ago, anyway) pretty face who could have theoretically attracted younger voters. Today, she’s just another face in a very big crowd. Not as pretty as Kamala Harris or Tulsi Gabbard, not cutting edge in any way, lacking any signature issue or win she can point to, not nearly far-left enough for the Millennial Democrat voters who prefer a true Commie like Bernie Sanders or the endlessly cute Beto instead.

Two years ago, Sen. Gillibrand thought that using the “F” and “S” words a lot in her speeches would help her presidential ambitions come true, because some pollster told her Millennials like politicians who curse a lot in public. Irish Bob O’Rourke is the prime example of this tactic resulting in some success, though not enough to beat Ted Cruz. But it didn’t work at all for Ms. Gillibrand, so she dropped it after awhile.

A year ago, when the whole #MeToo thing started picking off all manner of high-profile liberals, Gillibrand, who had been an ardent apologist for Bill Clinton for a quarter of a century, suddenly decided to publicly go after her hero.  That burst of intestinal fortitude lasted about five minutes, probably until someone reminded her of all the dirt the Pantsuit Princess has collected against pretty much everyone in Washington. Then Gillibrand timidly scurried back into her Clinton apologist corner.

Bottom line, Sen. Gillibrand is wasting her time. Don’t let her waste any of yours.

That is all.

Mitt Romney: Hillary Clinton in a Brooks Brothers Suit

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Replacing one flake with another. – Those of you who were despairing over the retirement of Jeff Flake from the U.S. Senate (yes, all three of you) had reason to cheer on Tuesday, because a white RINO knight rode in to fill the void.

His name is Mitt. He hails from Utah. He is a RINO like no other RINO – the only living RINO who ran such a feckless presidential campaign that he ensured a second term in office for America’s Worst Mistake, Barack Hussein Obama.

Combining all the most detestable traits of the RINO community – disloyalty, venality, massive hubris and an unending willingness to consort with the enemy for self-aggrandizement – Mitt authored a hit piece aimed at President Donald Trump in one of the nation’s foremost anti-Trump fake news organs, the Washington Post. In it, the two-time loooooooooser in presidential politics said that Mr. Trump “has not risen to the mantle of the office.” Hashtag, irony.

Romney went on to signal that he will be every bit as disloyal to the GOP cause as was his philosophical doppelganger, Flake: “I will support policies that I believe are in the best interest of the country and my state, and oppose those that are not.” In RINO-speak, this means that he will be just another shill for the open borders policies favored by the Wall Street Journal and Chamber of Commerce, and a supporter of U.S. involvement in unending civil wars in a variety of nations across the Middle East and Africa. Bill Kristol and Jonah Goldberg will be thrilled.

Mind you, Romney was thrilled to have Donald Trump’s endorsement during his failed presidential run in 2012, and was just fine with having a widely-publicized private dinner with then-President Elect Trump in his quest to gain the appointment as Secretary of State. Classically typical of any RINO, Romney’s “principles” are extremely malleable.

So, no surprises here – same old Mitt Romney. If you liked Mitt in 2012, you will absolutely love him in 2019, as he becomes a safe 48th vote in the Senate on key issues for the Democrat Party. As one writer headlined, “Mitt Romney Just Joined the Resistance.” He’s Hillary Clinton in a Brooks Brothers suit.

Refusing to take the bait… – This morning, President Donald Trump (I never tire of typing those three glorious words) had a policy-focused response to Romney’s taunt:

Fauxcahontas has a clear [war]path to the Democrat nomination. – The fake Indian senator from Massachusetts chose New Year’s Day to formally announce her run for the presidency, informing her mostly wealthy, white-bread supporters that she has formed an exploratory committee in that regard. She will now begin the process of raising big wampum for her campaign, including travels to early primary states like Iowa and New Hampshire where she will smoke the peace pipe around many campfires with her party’s local chiefs and high muckety-mucks.

Her campaign got off to a very Michael-Dukakis-riding-in-a-tank start with the release of the video below, which includes a tense hug with her husband, a struggle to pop the top on a bottle of beer, and some cooking, all very odd signals for a supposed leftwing feminist to be sending:

If you look closely, you might also notice what appears for all the world to be a figurine of “Sambo” atop the cabinet directly behind the civil rights crusader’s head. You seriously cannot make this stuff up.

Well, that’s one way to put it…

Man, I thought she was dead…

No matter how absurdly Mitt Romney behaves, he can never out-do this guy…

This is how CNN entertained its viewers on New Year’s Eve…

What a way to start the year, huh?

That is all.

And Just Like That, Beto Leaps Into The Lead

The Evening Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Beto Mania Update:  As if on cue with this morning’s Campaign Update, a new poll commissioned by Moveon.org has Irish Bob O’Rourke surging into the lead in the 2020 Democrat nominating contest even before he formally announces his inevitable candidacy:

Excerpt from the NBC.com article on the poll…

An early straw poll of members of the progressive group MoveOn.org shows a wide-open competition for liberal voters in the 2020 Democratic presidential contest, with Rep. Beto O’Rourke narrowly beating out former Vice President Joe Biden…

The most popular potential candidate was O’Rourke, D-Texas, who was selected by 15.6 percent of respondents, followed by Biden at 14.9 percent, and then Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., with 13.1 percent.

Now, a couple of things to note about this poll: First, it was conducted among the members of Moveon.org, who most observers would assume are on the left flank of the Democrat voter base, and five years ago that assumption would have been true.  But is it true now? Probably not – the Party has been pulled so far to the left over the last two years and Moveon.org’s members might well be to the right of the center of that particular leftwing universe these days.

Second, the poll did not include the Coughing Crook among its potential candidates, and anyone who thinks she has given up on her the presidential ambitions that have consumed her entire adult live is living in a dream world.

Third, the poll did include such Democrat luminaries as Kamala Harris, Cory Booker, Fauxcahontas and Micheal Bloomberg (who used to pretend to be a Republican), and represents very, very bad news for those characters. Harris and Booker were supposed to be the “young guns” in the 2020 Democrat field, and, after damaging themselves terribly during the Kavanaugh hearings, are in grave danger of seeing their rising moons eclipsed by the Beto Mania that is fast sweeping the country.

Irish Bob is going to be the Democrat nominee in 2020, as amazing as that might still seem to some of you. Yes, he’s a loser.  Yes, he has no real qualifications for the job. Yes, there are going to be 20 other candidates in the field.

But he’s going to be the nominee. Might as well just start printing up the bumper stickers now.

That is all.
