Hillary Clinton’s Political Career Ends not With a Bang, but a Whimper

The Evening Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

You probably missed it over the weekend, what with all the air in the room and fake news media coverage having been consumed by the death of Senator John McCain, but the Pantsuit Princess’s career came to a sudden, if unheralded end on Saturday.

Wait, what?  How did that happen, you ask?

In the end, the Fainting Felon was done in by an entity she literally owned throughout 2016:  The Democrat National Committee.  Yes, friends, that would be the very same DNC which conspired with the Clinton campaign throughout 2015 and 2016 to rig its nominating process in favor of the Grafting Grifter, denying her challengers – mainly, the Commie Bernie Sanders – a fair shake in the war for the party’s endorsement.  The same DNC whose emails were released to the news media, causing massive embarrassment on the eve of the opening of the Democrat National Convention in August 2016, where the Deceptive Doyen ended up being coronated as a result of all the rigging.  The same DNC that, in concert with the Clinton Campaign, funded the fake Trump Dossier.

Yes, THAT DNC.  One and the same.

At the conclusion of its summer meeting held last week in Chicago, the members of the DNC voted to severely restrict the role played in the nominating process by the party’s so-called “Super Delegates,” that collection of congress members, state officials and other members of the Party’s chosen upper-crust who ensured the Coughing Crook would be the Party’s 2016 nominee regardless of how the voters felt about it all.  The committee approved a proposal that will deny these Super Delegates the ability to vote in the first ballot at the party’s 2020 nominating convention.

Tom Perez, the radical Chairman of the DNC, said after the vote that  “These reforms will help grow our party, unite Democrats, and restore voters’ trust by making our 2020 nominating process the most inclusive and transparent in our history.”

The Pantsuit Princess hates transparency.  There has never been a moment in her entire adult life during which transparency has been her friend.

When one considers that the nominating votes at the party conventions almost never proceed past a first ballot, the implications of this move are enormous, because it virtually ensures that the party’s nomination in 2020 will be decided by its base voters.  The Pantsuit Princess was barely able to survive a completely rigged process against a single decently-funded opponent.  There is pretty much no way she will be able to survive a nominating process two years from now in which she must actually compete for votes on a level playing field against what will be a far stronger array of opponents.

This reality for the Grasping Grifter becomes even more stark when one recognizes the rapidly radicalizing nature of the Democrat voter base.  Such #resistance and social justice warrior types are going to completely dominate the turnout for the Democrat Party’s primaries in 2020, and they have moved far to the left of the space staked out by the Fainting Felon in 2016.  They have moved so far left so quickly that even The Commie finds himself frequently under fire from his own left flank these days.

There is little doubt that the Coughing Crook has plans to mount one last-gasp attempt to seize the nation’s highest office two years hence.  That’s what her endless, tiresome public appearances are all about, it’s what her pathetic book was all about, it’s what her incessant whining and blame-shifting are all about.  She has targeted the presidency since she and Bill were in college, and she lives in a state of constant and overwhelming rage that it has been denied her for so many years by these stupid, inferior voters.

But the DNC basically told her on Saturday that her time is done:  By de-rigging its nominating system, the members of the committee basically shut her and her influence-peddling-and-buying racket out of the process.  The irony is that the fake news media establishment that has propped her up so faithfully for so many years pretty much missed the story.

In the end, it is supremely appropriate that what has been perhaps the single most unearned and ill-deserved political career in our nation’s history ends not with a bang, but a whimper.

That is all.

Judicial Watch Drops a FISA Abuse Bomb

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Hey, who let Hillary out of the ICU? – The Pantsuit Princess made another of her incessant speaking gigs in New York City, and wasn’t wearing a pantsuit!  Instead, the Grasping Grifter was dressed in what for all the world looks like a Hospital gown:

Yikes.  Someone needs to perform an intervention here.

Don’t look now, but the narrative is changing, and the media won’t like it. – Tom Fitton and his folks at Judicial Watch (JW) performed a major public service yesterday, a service for which they will be excoriated by the entire Democrat Party and its propaganda wing in the fake news media.  That’s because Fitton and JW just interfered with their “Trump Russia” collusion narrative, and the Axis of Propaganda can’t stand to have its narrative messed with.

JW released 412 pages of documentation supporting the sham FISA warrant the DOJ/FBI anti-Trump cabal obtained in 2016, a warrant that gave a sort of legal standing to its already-existing spying operation on the Trump campaign.  The same documentation was used three more times to have the warrant renewed every three months as the anti-Trump cabal extended its operations to spying on the Trump Transition team and ultimately into the Trump Administration itself.

So, what was the basis for this spying warrant?  As the Campaign Update reported way back in December, pretty much nothing but the fake Trump Dossier that was compiled by British spy Christopher Steele, coordinating with Russian spies, and being paid by the Clinton Campaign and the Democrat National Committee (DNC).  As ex-FBI Director and current teenage Drama Queen James Comey testified way back in early 2017, without the Trump Dossier there would never have been a FISA warrant.

As Fitton himself noted, “These documents are heavily redacted but seem to confirm the FBI and DOJ misled the courts in withholding the material information that Hillary Clinton’s campaign and the DNC were behind the “intelligence” used to persuade the courts to approve the FISA warrants that targeted the Trump team. Given this corruption, President Trump should intervene and declassify the heavily redacted material.”

Yes, the President should do that at some point but probably won’t do so now for two reasons:  1) although it’s very likely that most of the redactions were done to protect FBI personnel from embarrassment or prosecution, some could be there to legitimately protect sources and U.S. intelligence personnel in other countries, and 2) because DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz’s own investigation into the FISA abuse scandal is still ongoing.  We shouldn’t expect any declassification by President Trump until Horowitz’s own report has been issued.

But the un-redacted bits and pieces of the 412 pages are a goldmine of information:

First, as has been noted for months, the warrant application ostensibly targets independent businessman Carter Page, who has done business in Russia for many years and advised the Trump Campaign for several weeks during 2016.  Two years after this initial FISA application, no charges of any kind have been brought against Mr. Page, although the scurrilous fake news media has repeatedly dragged his name through the mud.

This is because there never was any intention of bringing any case against Page, who has done nothing wrong.  His was simply a convenient name to cut and past into an application for a warrant that was really designed to provide after-the-fact justification for a spying operation that had begun months earlier.

Second, the Cabal never at any point notifies the Court that the fake Dossier was bought and paid for by the Clinton Campaign and the DNC, despite their clear foreknowledge of that fact.  They committed an intentional fraud on the court.

Third, The DOJ/FBI cabal attempted to launder the fake Trump Dossier to make it appear as if it was legitimate intelligence that had originated in the U.S. intelligence community.  As reporter Paul Sperry noted on Twitter, “FBI’s FISA warrant actually cites as “evidence” to spy on Carter Page/Trump campaign “Senate Minority Leader” Harry Reid’s 2016 letter to Comey citing information he got from John Brennan…”  The problem with that, of course, is that Brennan who got his information from … wait for it … the fake Trump Dossier!

The documentation is filled with multiple other efforts by the Cabal to mislead the Court by portraying information obtained directly from the fake Dossier as actual intelligence dug up by U.S. intel agencies and the FBI.  Again, an outright fraud on the Court.

Fourth, The Cabal also attempted to mislead the Court by portraying Steele as a legitimate intelligence resource in this semi-redacted passage:

“Source #1” is Christopher Steele.  A few weeks after the first application was filed, the FBI fired this flawless, upstanding, totally-believable “source” it admits it had been paying because Steele leaked the fake Dossier to the execrable David Corn, a longtime fake reporter for Mother Jones magazine.

Fifth, those with good memories will remember that both Comey and ex-Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe testified to congress that Steele’s faked-up Dossier was a key piece of the justification for the FISA application.  This turns out to have been a massive understatment.

As Sperry further notes, Steele – “Source #1” – is not just a key source of information in these documents, he is in fact the ONLY source:  “In all the FISA apps filed to spy on Trump advisor Page there is no evidentiary source listed other than “Source #1” — and “Source #1″ is Christopher Steele. (There is no Source #2 or Source #3, etc. Just a single source — Source #1.)”

Thus, McCabe’s statement that “without the Trump Dossier there would be no FISA warrant” turns out to be literally true given that it apparently forms the entire supporting basis for the application.

On his Twitter feed this morning, President Trump responded as follows:

An illegal scam indeed.  It’s important to note here that President Trump has known all of this and so much more for months now – none of this is any surprise to him at all.  In fact he has most likely known about it all since even before he took office.

People are all over social media this morning urging Mr. Trump to declassify everything now.  But he has bided his time this long, allowing people like Comey, McCabe, Strzok, Clapper and Brennan to figuratively hang themselves with their deranged public statements and congressional testimonies.  He’s following a well-planned process and isn’t going to interrupt that process now.

The next step in that process will be the release of the Horowitz report on FISA abuse, which will probably take place in August, less than three months before the mid-term elections.  After that, hell is coming for these people.

Just another day in trust the process America.

That is all.

The Democrats and the Media Want War With Russia. Why?

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

When I saw this headline, I assumed it had to be about Peter Strzok. – Man arrested for contacting ex-girlfriend 200 times per day.

Let me guess – because you’re an idiot and an awful mother? – A British fake journalist named Rebecca Schiller wrote a piece for the UK Guardian titled “Why I took my 8 year-old daughter on an anti-Trump protest.”  Good grief.

Tired of all this Winning yet? – A few minutes ago, the President tweeted the following:

Four percent economic growth.  Four percent unemployment.  ISIS is about 98 percent dead.  The price of gasoline is going down because the President leaned on the Saudis to put more crude oil on the open market.  The Crazy Little Fat Guy in North Korea has been neutralized.  The U.S. is now back on a path towards a productive relationship with Russia.  The Supreme Court will soon have a working majority that will consistently respect the U.S. Constitution for the first time in two generations.

All this and so much more has been achieved in just 20 months, and it is driving the Democrat/fake news media axis of propaganda utterly mad.

Profiles in how not to do public relations, courtesy of MGM Resorts. – The families of the victims of last October’s Las Vegas massacre have a real reason to be outraged, as they were all sued on Monday by the raving morons who run MGM Resorts, which of course owns the Mandalay Bay Casino Resort from which the Vegas gunman killed or wounded more than 500 people.  I swear I don’t make this stuff up:

“The company, which owns Mandalay Bay and the Route 91 Harvest festival venue, argues that it cannot be held liable for Oct. 1 deaths, injuries or other damages, adding that any claims against MGM parties “must be dismissed,” according to complaints filed Friday in Nevada and California.”

Mind you, this is the same Mandalay Bay whose miserably incompetent security allowed the shooter to spirit something like 20 huge suitcases filled with guns and ammo up to his room over a period of several days using the freaking freight elevator, for crying out loud.  For this company to now claim that it has no liability in this mass shooting is just despicable, and so unbelievably stupid from a PR aspect that I honestly hope they get put out of business for it.  A pox on all their houses.

Oh, and here’s another tweet that President Trump just posted that’s worth mentioning:

This tweet is worth mentioning because it’s absolutely true, pointing to a reality that constitutes one of the most frightening aspects of our current political dynamic in Washington.  It’s not just that the President’s opponents oppose his outreach to Putin and Russia in a quest for political advantage – it’s far more than that.

For two years now I’ve been periodically writing about the obvious desire among the Democrat Party, most of the major news media and the warmonger faction among the Republicans in congress to actively seek a shooting war with Russia.  It is hard to grasp what the motivation behind this desire actually is, but there is no question have been viscerally opposed to any effort by President Trump to establish a more productive working relationship with the world’s only other major nuclear superpower.

This attitude and rhetorical dynamic came into focus when it became obvious that Donald Trump would be the GOP presidential nominee.  Given that Trump was the only candidate advocating for better relations with Russia, and that Putin was at the time still interfering in the affairs of the Ukraine, it would have made sense for the Pantsuit Princess and her amen chorus in the fake news media to develop counter talking points to that position.

But that’s not what happened.  What happened instead was the creation of an unending and steadily escalating drumbeat of rank hostility towards Russia from the same quarters of the Washington DC establishment that had just a few years before applauded the Coughing Crook for her juvenile “Reset Button” outreach to Putin and Russia.

This hostile clamor against any positive outreach towards Putin and Russia has now grown into claims of “treason” hurled at the President of the United States from noted Obama-era bad actors like John Brennan, James Clapper, Jim Comey and the Fainting Felon herself.  The leftwing rag Politico even published a piece on Monday openly advocating for the U.S. to declare war on Russia.  Breathtaking.

Hey, wait a minute:  Think about what other Russia-related events those people all have in common:

  • The “hacking” of the DNC servers, which the DNC (then run by the Clinton Campaign) refused to allow the FBI to properly investigate, prompting then-FBI Director James Comey to shrug his shoulders and say, “oh, ok.”; and
  • The Uranium One transaction, in which 20% of U.S. uranium reserves were sold to a Putin front Russian company in exchange for hundreds of millions of dollars flowing into the Clinton Foundation;

We now know that the Uranium One transaction was signed off on by much of the senior leadership of the Obama Administration at the time.  And of course, we know that the Clinton/Obama amen chorus in our fake news media ignored and even helped to facilitate the transaction with justifying coverage of it over the last 7 years.

Putin knows exactly what happened in both of those cases – is it any wonder, then, that all of these people would be horrified at the thought of President Trump holding a private meeting with Putin for 90 minutes in a neutral country?  Can we doubt that these people would gladly go to outright war with Russia in order to avoid real accountability for their actions?

This is the only explanation I can come up with for the years-long, outright advocacy for going to war with a country that has not attacked the United States in any real way – Russia has been meddling in U.S. elections for 50 years, so please don’t bring up their meddling in 2016 – and which possesses a nuclear arsenal comparable to our own.

This is not just “Trump Derangement Syndrome”, though that does play a big part in it.  More to the point, this is “Self-Preservation Syndrome” on the part of a pack of really bad people who have betrayed our country on such a grand scale that it is almost unimaginable.  If these seem like really desperate people to you, well, that’s likely because they are really desperate people.

Just another day in the truth will ultimately come out America.

That is all.

Today Was a Breathtaking Display of the Democrats’ and Media’s Rank Hypocrisy

The Evening Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

In 2003, after it had become apparent that the U.S. and allied forces who had invaded Iraq to remove Saddam Hussein were not going to find the vaunted weapons of mass destruction that served as the pretense for justifying the invasion, the fake U.S. and international news media, in coordination with the Democrat Party, demonized the U.S. intelligence community for its apparent failure to properly assess the threat.  The employees and leaders of the CIA, DIA, FBI, NSA and all the myriad other alphabet agencies that make up the U.S. intel apparatus were called incompetent, deceptive, even traitors by the fake media/Democrat propaganda complex for leading our country into an unjustified war.

Of course, no apologies were forthcoming when it later became obvious that Saddam had indeed had a stockpile of WMDs that he spirited off to Syria in advance of the allied invasion.  The left never apologizes for anything since no one in the fake news media ever demands it of them.

Those of us who defended the intel community at the time were also called all sorts of names, including but not limited to “traitors”, by these same Democrats and their media agents.  Fifteen years later, many of us are old enough to still remember all of that.

So it was a bit of a marvel today to see the fake news media/Democrat propaganda complex – including many of the same players from 2003 – demonize not the U.S. intel community, but President Donald Trump and his supporters after Trump criticized those myriad alphabet agencies during his press conference with Vladimir Putin.  In 2003, we were all traitors if we didn’t condemn the U.S. intel community, and today we’re all traitors if we do criticize them.

And this is all about Russia.  Many of us are also old enough to remember way back in 2012, when Barack Obama snarkily told Mitt Romney during a debate that “The 1980s called and they want their foreign policy back.”  That was Obama’s response to Romney’s contention that Russia constituted one of America’s foremost foreign adversaries.

Wait, isn’t that what the Democrats are all screaming today?  I know, right?

Yes, it is, but this was in 2012, barely a year after Obama, Hillary, Comey and Mueller had all participated in the selling of 20% of America’s uranium reserves to a Russian company that was just a front for Vladimir Putin, so the Democrats in those days felt the need to pretend we have no issues with Russia.  Six years later, they know that Putin knows everything about what happened back then and during the 2016 elections, and now feel desperate to de-legitimize him in the public’s mind in case he starts talking.

So now Putin and Russia are almost our awfulest, worstest enemies in the current media/Democrat talking point manual, just below President Trump, who is in fact our premier awfulest, worstest enemy.  Because President Trump also knows everything about what happened back then and during the 2016 elections, and well, he’s the President of the United States and will presumably at some point demand that Jeff Sessions and the Justice Department do something about it.  Make sense?

So, when President Trump said in the press conference that Putin made a “forceful” denial of Russian intervention in those 2016 elections, that is suddenly the worst thing that’s ever, ever, ever happened in all of American history going back to Columbus.

But hey, it was no big deal at all when Barack Obama, after meeting with Putin in 2016 and raising the subject of meddling with him, said of Putin’s denials that “He denies it. So the idea that somehow public shaming is gonna be effective, I think doesn’t read the thought process in Russia very well.”  Because back in 2016, all the fake reporters and Democrats assumed Hillary Clinton was going to win the election and whatever really did take place would just all be swept under the rug anyway.

But now it’s 2018 and Vladimir Putin knows everything that happened and Donald Trump knows everything that happened, and the fake reporters who helped facilitate it all and the Democrats who participated in it all are utterly, completely panicked and lashing out like never before.

And so you get tweets like this from Obama CIA Director and longtime communist voter John Brennan:

And this, from former Clinton advisor Peter Dau:

And this from supposedly bed-ridden John McCain, who was complicit in promoting the fake Trump Dossier during the 2016 campaign:

That statement, by the way, is at least 300 words long and was released within an hour after the end of the press conference.  Seems like a man with the energy to fully analyze an hour log press conference and whip out a 300-word statement in real time like that might also have the energy to travel to Washington and do his job.  But I digress.

At any rate, as so often happens, President Trump issued a tweet on this very subject as I was typing this piece.  Here it is:

But as I pointed out this morning, the fake news media, the Democrats and war mongers like Sen. McCain cannot have this “get along” nonsense happen – they all make their livings and control their power through the perpetuation of conflict and civil strife and violence.

Donald Trump is a 72 year-old multi-billionaire who decided to give up his retirement years in order to try to make life better for Americans.  Sometimes, it’s hard to imagine why he bothers.

Just another day in Donald Trump is doing his job for America.

That is all.

Jeff Sessions Holds all the Keys to the Mid-term Elections

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Note to America:  Dianne Feinstein is no longer far left enough for California Democrats.  – Yes, let that one sink in for a minute before you continue on.

Senator Feinstein, who has held her senate seat since 1992 and was the very liberal mayor of San Francisco from 1978 through 1988, was basically given a vote of no confidence by the executive board of her own political party in her home state on Saturday, as party delegates voted overwhelmingly to support her Democrat challenger in the November election.  For those unfamiliar with California’s odd voting system, candidates from all parties run in open primaries in June, and the top two vote-getters then face off in the general election.

In the June primary, the far-left Feinstein easily bested her far, far, far, far-left opponent, state assemblyman Kevin de Leon, winning 44 percent of the vote to his 12 percent.  But de Leon won the endorsement vote from the executive board members by a whopping 65 to 7 margin, with 28 percent choosing not to endorse either candidate.  Breathtaking.

I’ve been around a long time and I can’t remember any long-time U.S. senator receiving this kind of overwhelming rebuke from their own political party.  The only good news for Feinstein is that she’ll no doubt get 90+ percent of the vote from Republican and independent voters who will find de Leon even more radical than she is.  So she’ll most likely survive to hold her senate seat into her 90s (she’s 85 now), which is precious little comfort to normal people out here in flyover country.

Speaking of the November mid-term elections, I’ve had several inquiries about where I think things are headed, so now would be a good time for a mid-year update.

Those who followed me throughout the 2016 campaign will know that I believe the overall public mood is a far bigger and more important influence over the balance of power outcome of national elections than are the nitty gritty details that the inside-the-Beltway pundits tend to focus on.  This is a more prominent influence during presidential election years than in mid-terms, but it is still a major factor.

That belief is why I began telling my clients and readers in October 2015 that I believed Donald Trump would win the presidency.  The clear mood of the vast majority of the public in 2016 was for change – real, fundamental change in the direction of the country after our disastrous 8-year experiment with community organizer radicalism, which had corrupted every institution of our government.  Among all of the primary candidates in both parties, Donald Trump, by October 2015, was the only truly viable candidate offering real change.

So, even while micro-analysts like Nate Silver were giving Hillary a 97 percent chance of winning and most of the polls showed her holding big leads in the months leading up to Election Day, I held to the belief that the overall mood in favor of real, radical change would end up prevailing and Trump would become the next POTUS.  On the Sunday prior to Election Day, I predicted he’d win 311 electoral votes, overshooting his final total by five.

The overriding public mood this far in advance of Election Day, 2018 is more difficult to read.  Which, frankly, is good news for the GOP, because the absence of a clear public mood mitigates in favor of the status quo.

Thanks to the tireless efforts of the Democrat Party and its fake news media guardians, the public is more divided than at any time since perhaps 1860.  The President’s base of support has only grown more loyal and unshakable over the first 19 months of his presidency, and he now polls better among self-identifying Republicans than any of his predecessors.  But the radical leftist Democrat base of support has only grown more radical over the same period of time, making it very difficult to determine if the majority inertia among the electorate is for change or for preservation of the status quo.

Again, the lack of any clear indication that this will be a real change election also mitigates in favor of the GOP, which holds majorities in both houses of congress, and which is only defending 9 senate seats as opposed to 25 the Democrats must defend.

So, here’s my current thinking on the ultimate outcome:

If the election were held today, the Rs would retain control of the House – barely – and gain a bigger majority in the Senate, with maybe 54 or 55 total seats.  There would be no impeachment action on the horizon, and President Trump would be an overwhelming favorite to be re-elected in 2020.

But the election is four months away, and much can change between now and November. If November comes around and nothing has changed in the current status quo related to all the Obama-era bad actors, the election will go very badly for the Rs.

Right now, the GOP base is pumped up, but it’s only because of President Trump, not due to anything the Republican congress has accomplished.  The tax cuts are great, but they are also old news at this point, and voters in November are going to be asking what have you done for me lately?  Congress’s failure to act on Obamacare last year and the steadfast refusal by Paul Ryan and Mitch McConnell to really make a push for funding the border wall will be big issues this fall in the minds of GOP voters.  Should the Senate somehow fail to confirm Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court by Election Day, that also will be a huge negative for the Republicans.

There is also great and growing dissatisfaction among the GOP base with Attorney General Jeff Sessions and the lack of any real law enforcement action being taken against the myriad bad actors within his Department.  If we get to November and no one has been indicted, Rod Rosenstein still has his job, Robert Mueller is still indicting Russian ham sandwiches at strategic moments, Peter Strzok still has his security clearances, Andrew McCabe and James Comey are still walking around free and unindicted men, and Hillary Clinton still appears to be immune from the laws of the land, then GOP voter enthusiasm will fall through the floor.

If, on the other hand, November comes around and a bunch of indictments have been served on a bunch of these terrible people and maybe Hillary Clinton and John and Tony Podesta to boot, then the GOP will pick up net seats in the elections and possibly finish the increasingly-radicalizing Democrat Party off for a generation.

It is not an overstatement to say that the entire future of our country hinges on the real nature of Jeff Sessions.  Is he just another corrupt Washington, D.C. swamp rat?  Or has he, along with Michael Horowitz, John Huber and others just been biding his time, executing a plan that will result in the beginning of real enforcement actions following the issuance of Horowitz’s report on the abuse of the FISA process several weeks from now?

Good questions.  The time for finding out is growing short.

Just another day in Jeff Sessions is holding all the keys America.

That is all.

Amy Coney Barrett is the Perfect Nominee for this Moment in Time

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Hillary Clinton, the gift that just keeps on giving.  To Republicans.  – Oh please, let this be so.  Michael Goodwin, terrific columnist for the New York Post, had a great piece on Saturday laying out the reasons why he believes that the Fainting Felon is planning behind the scenes to mount yet another run for the presidency in 2020.  Personally, I think he’s right – have long thought this would inevitably be the case – and that everyone should begin prepping themselves for Hillary Part III:  The Return of the Pantsuit.

And why not?  Think about it – what other, truly viable candidate for the presidency does the Democrat Party truly have sitting out there for 2020?  Fauxcahontas?  President Trump would dispose of her with a one-liner in their first debate.  Republicans would be thrilled to fund her primary campaign.

Kirsten Gillebrand?  She’s Hillary, Part II:  The Clone Wars.  Not a genuine cell in her entire body.  This is a politician so utterly fake that she spent six months running around the country tossing the “F” word and other profanities into her speeches because she had polling information that showed that cussing appealed to Millennial voters.  That tactic wore thin very quickly, and you’ll note she isn’t doing it any more.  She’s an out-and-out joke, which, come to think of it, would make her the Democrat Party’s perfect nominee in 2020.  But Hillary Clinton is literally the Queen of political fakery.  She’s been doing it since Gillebrand was wearing diapers.

Corey Booker?  This guy’s closet looks like a skeleton repository.  The Clinton machine would grind him into dust in a month once primary season begins.

Kamala Harris?  She wants to be the Second Coming of Barack Obama, and maybe she can be.  She’s certainly attractive, glib, narcissistic and shallow enough.  But second comings in national politics are really hard to pull off.  Just ask Jack Kemp, the Second Coming of Ronald Reagan, or John Edwards, the Second Coming of Bill Clinton, exactly how hard that is to do.

Who else you got, Democrats?  No matter who raises his or her hand, you can bet the Grasping Grifter is sitting there, plotting a way to destroy them in her unending quest to attain the nation’s highest office and convert our entire country into a mob-style influence peddling operation.  She’s already got her own Super PAC established and well-funded, and a small army of brainwashed toady boys like Brian Fallon and Robby Mook ready to go out and parrot talking points on her behalf.

Anyone who expected the Pantsuit Princess to just gracefully accept defeat and fade off into the sunset like a normal person doesn’t understand Hillary Clinton.

Prime Time Tonight:  The world’s greatest showman nominates a Supreme Court Justice! – No one understands the power of television like President Trump does.  Where past presidents announced their supreme court nominees in mid-day appearances in the White House briefing room, this President schedules his announcements for prime time in a ball room filled with his staff, congressional leaders and cabinet officials.  It’s like the final episodes of each season of The Celebrity Apprentice, only now the “celebrity” winner gets to sit on the nation’s highest court for the next 30 years or so, God willing.

All the speculation on the nominee’s identity centers around four contenders:  Thomas Hardiman, Raymond Kethledge, Brett Kavanaugh and Amy Coney Barrett.  They’re all great judges, all solidly conservative in their jurisprudence, and any would make a fine member of the Supreme Court.

My view is that the obvious best choice here is Judge Barrett, and yes, it’s because of her gender.  But before any of you gets too upset, let me at least explain my reasoning.

The Democrats are going to either “Bork” or “Clarence Thomas” this nominee.  Regardless of who the person is, regardless of that person’s gender or race or religion or education background or personal integrity, the nominee for this seat on the Supreme Court is going to either be painted as “too extreme” in their views or they will have people coming out of the woodwork to accuse them of sexual harassment or some other sorts of wrongdoing from many years ago that cannot be proven or disproven.

For this simple reason alone, the President should pick Judge Barrett to fill this seat.  As we saw during the 2016 election campaign, it is just too easy for the Democrats to go out and pay a woman or ten women to claim they had affairs or were sexually harassed by a male nominee.  As we saw with Clarence Thomas and with the ongoing #MeToo movement, the woman in such situations is always – always – going to be presumed by the media to be telling the truth.

Because of the manner in which our society has been conditioned to view such interactions between men and women, it will be far harder for Democrats to pay one or more men to scurry out from under the baseboards to claim they were mistreated in some way by a female nominee.  Thus, all other factors being equal, Judge Barrett becomes the obvious choice.

It’s sad to be writing this stuff, and I take no joy in doing so, but these are the rules that leftwingers and radical feminists have constructed for our society.  Republicans, and President Trump, would be stupid not to acknowledge those rules and take them into account.  Yes, many Republicans are in fact stupid, but the President is not among them.

The other, equally obvious reason to nominate Judge Barrett is that, just last year, she was subjected to the senate confirmation process.  Her hearing before the Senate Judiciary Committee was very contentious, and the odious Democrats threw most of their playbook at her, focusing mainly on their own inherent religious bigotry against Judge Barrett’s Catholic faith.

Most of America did not get to see the spectacle of the despicable Dianne Feinstein telling Judge Barrett that “the [Catholic] dogma lives loudly within you,” so it would be quite educational for the country if President Trump gives the California Senator a chance to repeat her display of religious bigotry to a broader national audience.

With the mid-term elections coming up and the Democrats still somehow clinging to their “gender gap” advantage with women voters, the President should let his opponents take their best shots at this highly-qualified female nominee.  In fact, he should dare them to do so.

Just another day in Amy Coney Barrett is the obvious choice here America.

That is all.

Here’s How the Left Demeaned Independence Day

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Liberals just keep coming out of the anti-America closet, Part 6,582.:  Some guy named Dylan Matthews, writing at the far-leftwing Vox.com fake news site, ran a piece on July 4 titled “3 Reasons the American Revolution was a Mistake.”

The piece includes the usual complaints about America’s horrible treatment of native Americans, which are mostly true, but then moves to unsupported claims that slavery would have somehow ended sooner without the Revolution and – hilariously – that the British parliamentary form of government is somehow far superior to the American Republic.  Obviously, like most hardcore leftist morons, Matthews longs to live in a country where you get thrown into jail for speaking the truth about radical Islam.

Towards that end, I’m certainly willing to help pay the idiot’s moving costs.

Is that a promise or a threat? – Somebody forgot to hide the Smirnoff from the Pantsuit Princess yesterday morning.  As a result, she sent out this tweet:

We certainly aren’t finished yet – perhaps 10 percent of the un-American legacy of Barack Obama still remains un-reversed by President Donald Trump – but we’re getting close, thanks solely to the failure of the Fainting Felon to claim the highest office in the land.  Just one more thing to be thankful for this morning out here in Flyover Country.

But the Resistance fights on – and looks really silly doing it… – A 44 year-old immigrant from the Congo climbed up on the base of the Statue of Liberty on July 4 and sat there taunting law enforcement for about 3 hours.  Naturally, the NYPD took the completely irrational action of shutting the national monument down entirely while they mainly stood around looking at the woman and occasionally issuing threats via a bull horn.

Thus, thousands of patriotic Americans were denied the privilege of visiting Lady Liberty on Independence Day due to the actions of one leftwing idiot.  The idiot was identified as a …wait for it… ‘social worker’ (because what else would she be other than perhaps an unemployed person with a degree in Ukranian women’s studies?) who has a long history of run-ins with law enforcement (because again, what else would be the case?).

In 2011, the idiot made headlines in the New York media when she was charged with 60 violations for illegally posting ads on telephone poles for her services as a personal trainer, for which she was fined $4,500.  In 2017,  “she was arrested and charged with obstructing governmental administration, unlawful assembly and trespassing during a demonstration at the Department of Labor building on Varick Street. She had allegedly covered her mouth with tape and refused to respond to police demands.”

Can there be any doubt that, after this latest run-in with the law, the idiot will resurface in 2020 as a Democrat candidate for congress?  None at all.

Not to be outdone by some statue climber, the evil leftist minions at Facebook used July 4 as the proper day to deny a country band the right to use its paid tools to promote a song titled “I Stand for the Flag.”

The song, which features lyrics such as “Don’t care if you’re black or white or who you love, I stand for the Flag and the Flag stands for all of us,” was deemed to be …wait for it…”too political” by the evil Facebook minions, who simply deleted the band’s original post and locked them out of use of the social media giant’s marketing tools.  So, to be crystal clear, Facebook considers the phrase “I stand for the flag and the flag stands for all of us” to be too divisive to appear on its platform.

The decision was reversed later in the day, but only after the band complained and began to receive media coverage on the incident.  But the knee-jerk reaction to ban this patriotic song from the platform tells you all you really need to know about the prevailing mindset at Facebook.

Your Democrat Party in action! – Finally, Tom Perez, the Marxist Chairman of the Democrat National Committee, used the opportunity to release a predictably depressing message on Independence Day.  Here’s the money shot:

“As we celebrate our nation’s independence, we recognize that America’s founding promise remains out of reach for too many families. Too many members of our society are still struggling to find a good-paying job or get the health care they need. Too many women, LGBTQ Americans, people of color, and people with disabilities still face inequality and injustice across our society.

“Everywhere we look, our most fundamental values are under attack. Thousands of children have been separated from their parents at our southern border. At our highest court, workers’ rights are being taken away, voting rights are under assault, Muslim Americans are being discriminated against for their faith, and women’s right to choose is under threat like never before.”

One can only wonder what country Tom Perez and his fellow Democrats actually live in?  Never in the history of the world have women, people of color, people with disabilities and LGBTQ citizens enjoyed such freedom and opportunity as they do in America today.  Our economy is running at near full-employment for the first time in half a century – the biggest problem employers have today is finding enough qualified people to hire.

Never in any democracy in world history has access to voting been so easy and free.  Muslim Americans have vastly more freedom in this country than they would in any Muslim nation on earth.  Our highest court, rather than taking away workers’ rights, just restored the rights of Americans to work without being forced to pay dues to a union whose leaders are simply going to transfer the money they don’t steal directly to the Democrat Party.

Mr. Perez’s message is in fact completely vile, disgusting, utterly dishonest and of course unpatriotic.  But then, he is the voice of today’s Democrat Party, so that’s all to be expected.

Just another day in the Democrat Party hates this country America.

That is all.

The Democrat Party is Self-Destructing

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Well, yes, because she hasn’t uttered an un-scripted word in public in 30 years. – The Pantsuit Princess was over in jolly old England on Friday, making herself a nuisance to the Brits for a change.  At one point, she recited a line someone had written for her comparing herself to …wait for it…Winston Churchill!  Yes, THAT Winston Churchill.  Here’s the line:

“I’m sure they said that about Churchill between the wars, didn’t they?  I mean, I’m not comparing myself (oh, no, perish the thought!), but I’m just saying people said that, but he was right about Hitler, and a lot of people in England were wrong. And Churchill was a pain. He kept popping up all the time.”

See how she did that?  She not only equates herself to the greatest conservative figure in British history, but also gets in the shameful “Trump = Hitler” dig.  Her scriptwriters are obviously working overtime.

Unfortunately for the Fainting Felon, the British press is a little quicker on the uptake than the 2 digit IQ U.S. media, and a reporter for the U.K. Guardian hilariously notes that the Coughing Crook made the Churchill reference “a fraction too quickly for the line to sound spontaneous.”

You don’t say, my good man.

Hey, if you’re doomed to lose an election, might as well make it a complete bloodbath, right? – Hey, remember when every liberal/leftist/progressive/socialist/communist Democrat in America was telling all of us that criticizing a federal law enforcement agency was tantamount to treason?  Yeah, what was that, last week?

Well, this is this week, and now the Democrats are not only criticizing a federal law enforcement agency – ICE – they’re equating the agency to nothing but a bunch of …wait for it…Nazis (don’t they have anything else?) and now pushing bills to eliminate the agency entirely.  Man, did that escalate quickly, or what?

Yes, friends, the same bunch of lying circus clowns who told you that one must never utter a word of criticism against the utterly-corrupted FBI lest you be accused of being a traitor to your nation are now pushing actual legislation to eliminate the federal agency that plays the main role in apprehending MS-13 gang members and guess what else?  Child traffickers.

That’s the agency the Democrats want to eliminate, the one that has been responsible for a 400% increase in apprehension of child traffickers over the 18 months since Donald Trump became President.  Let that sink in.

November is going to be a Red Tsunami.

Don’t believe me?  President Trump understands what a powerful issue this will be for Republican congressional candidates.  As I was compiling this piece early Saturday morning, the POTUS issued the following Tweets on the subject:

Today, to top it all off for the Democrats, their professional radical agitator community is staging anti-ICE, pro-open borders demonstrations in hundreds of cities and towns all across the country.  Of course, the two senators who have come out in favor of eliminating ICE – Kirsten Gillebrand and Kamala Harris – are both running for President in 2020, and they obviously believe the best way to win the nomination is to pander to the Democrat Party’s most radical faction.

No word yet from either on how they plan to move to the middle for the general election after they spend a year sucking up to MS-13 and the nation’s child molester communities, but we can be sure they have a plan that involves copious amounts of lying, because that’s what leftwing politicians always fall back on when all else fails.

My goodness.

Hey, about that Supreme Court vacancy… – But make no mistake, the immigration issue is not the Democrats’ only death-spiral issue for the midterm elections this year – they also appear intent to commit self-immolation over the vacancy on the supreme court that exists due to Anthony Kennedy’s retirement.  For the Democrats, this vacancy is about what all supreme court nominations in the last 45 years have been about:  The fall-on-your-sword defense of the most baseless supreme court decision in American history, 1973’s Roe v. Wade.

This is terrible for the Democrats for one main reason:  it will turn off many of the middle-to-upper-class, suburban mothers with whom their party has made significant in-roads over the last few election cycles.  Yes, they used the same strategy to oppose Neil Gorsuch, but that fight was in mid-2017, long enough ago to have faded from the memories of most of this crucial voter faction.

Now, the Democrats are going to be using all of their harsh “kill babies at all costs at all times” rhetoric bare weeks before Election Day, making speech after speech and TV appearance after TV appearance parroting their pro-abortion talking points.  All to keep in place a decision that has no real foundation in the Constitution, and which has been the single most divisive decision in the Court’s history.

They’re going to do all of that because their radical voter base demands it, but these suburban women are not leftist radicals.  They’re moms with little kids running around the house, kids to whom they gave birth and love with all their hearts.  When they witness the radical, often violent demonstrations coming to our nation’s streets this summer and fall, many of them are going to be turned completely off and decide to either stay at home or vote for the Republican candidate because they can’t stand to support that kind of depravity.

President Trump announced yesterday that he has narrowed his field of candidates for the nomination to five judges – three men and two women – and will make his announcement on July 9.  He’s not going to waste any time here because, as with the ICE issue, he understands what a winner it is for him and his political party.

The Democrats, as usual, appear to be clueless.  And that’s how we like them.

Just another day in the Democrat Party is self-destructing America.

That is all.

Depraved Democrats Find Their Evil Plan Isn’t Working. Expect More Depravity to Follow.

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Barack Obama and the Pantsuit Princess are jealous. – Turkey’s dictator Tayyip Erdogan “won” another heavily-rigged fake election over the weekend, and will now serve as that country’s “president” through 2023.  For stealing and suppressing enough votes to allow him to hold onto power, the ThompsonReuters fake news agency called Erdogan “the most popular but also the most divisive politician in modern Turkish history”.  The Fainting Felon has long had the “divisive” part down pat, but still aspires to achieve such “popularity.”

Leftists hate you and want to take away your freedoms, Part 11,985. – San Fran Nan was unusually quiet over the weekend, possibly due to recent polls showing her public image with voters is toxic to her Party’s chances in the November elections, so the Democrat Party’s “depravity-and-dementia-on-display” factor had reached a low ebb on Saturday morning.  But then, like clockwork, Mad Maxine Waters kicked her lunatic self into gear..

Rep. Waters drummed up a few dozen people who were either her nutjob supporters, paid activists, bullied staff or, most likely, some combination of the three to hold a demonstration outside of the Wilshire Federal Building in Los Angeles Saturday afternoon.  There, she engaged in full-on incitement to violence, urging leftists all over the nation to engage in harassment of Trump Administration personnel anytime they come across them in public.

Falsely claiming that President Trump is “sacrificing our children” along the southern border – because of course Maxine Waters has to begin any speech with an inflammatory statement that is a lie on multiple levels – the raging dimwit went on to state that “History will record while he tried to step on all of us, we kicked him in his rear and step on him,” and, “If you think we’re rallying now, you ain’t seen nothin’ yet,” because, of course, it’s the rallying that matters most.  *sigh*

Not finished yet (because of course she wasn’t), the braying buffoon then declared, without evidence, that “God is on our side!” before going onto threaten every member of the President’s cabinet:

“Let’s make sure we show up wherever we have to show up and if you see anybody from that Cabinet in a restaurant, in a department store, at a gasoline station, you get out and you create a crowd and you push back on them, and you tell them they’re not welcome anymore, anywhere.”

This is clear incitement to violence, a threat that, had it been made by any Republican office-holder during the Obama years would have been followed very quickly by a visit from the Secret Service, and which would have been immediately condemned by almost the entire GOP congressional caucus.  But from the depraved Democrats?  Not a peep.

Mark my words and feel free to quote me on this:  These depraved and deranged Democrats are going to get someone killed pretty soon, and when that happens, all hell is going to break loose.  It’s just a year ago that a Bernie Sanders fanatic shot up the House GOP’s softball practice, and people like Waters are clearly attempting to create another, similar event.  If you vote for Democrats, you really should hang your head in shame.

Speaking of Depraved Democrats (because why not?), they’re not getting the polling results they want from their many public displays of anti-social depravity, and it’s really starting to show.

First, they obviously got some really bad early polling data from the now-infamous “Red Hen” incident, in which the owner of that restaurant in Lexington, VA kicked Sarah Huckabee Sanders and her family out on Friday evening, because the Party sent Maryland Congressman Elijah Cummings out on the Sunday morning talk shows to actually say that the restaurant “should have served her.”  Trust me, those are words that the tireless demagogue Cummings would never have uttered absent some external driver, and that external driver was almost certainly some really awful polling or focus group data.

Then there’s the whole illegal immigration issue.  It turns out that two weeks of screaming, wailing and heinously lying about the issue of illegal alien children being temporarily separated from their illegal alien parents has resulted in some truly horrible polling numbers for….wait for it… the Democrats!

In a new Rasmussen survey on the issue, fully 54% of likely voters (Rasmussen is the only pollster that polls likely voters) blame the parents, not the Trump Administration, for this situation, with only 35% blaming the government. But wait, it gets worse, much worse for the Democrats, as only 46% of independent voters blame the government on the issue.

And then this for a kicker:

“Fifty-four percent (54%) agree with President Trump when he says, “The United States will not be a migrant camp. And it will not be a refugee-holding facility – it won’t be.” Thirty percent (30%) disagree, while 16% are undecided.”

Think about the implications of that last finding:  Only 30% of likely voters are in favor of the Democrat Party’s real goal of unfettered, open borders for the United States after all of this hyperbolic rhetoric, lying, shouting and fake crying about the issue.  Somewhere, Rachel Maddow is probably shedding real tears for once.

Just another day in November is going to be a wipeout America.

That is all.
