Resurgent Biden Proves That Trump Changed Presidential Politics Forever

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

A billion dollars just doesn’t buy what it used to buy. – Think about this for a second: Between them, billionaires Tom Steyer and Michael Bloomberg just combined to pour right at a billion dollars of their own personal fortunes into what became two of the most spectacularly failed primary campaigns in American history.

Both men hired massive staffs of hundreds – with Bloomberg, it was thousands – of people who were supposed to be the best and brightest minds in the campaign professional cottage industry. They both paid hundreds of millions of dollars to the cream of the crop of advertising agencies and polling companies and social media outfits to produce slick ads and websites for their campaigns, filled with the latest messages that were sure to appeal to the maximum possible numbers of voters.

Both billionaires literally stuffed the pockets of local and national television channels, along with radio stations and web presences across the spectrum of the nation. Their ads were ubiquitous: At one point in January, I clicked on a link to a story at the Los Angeles Times, and literally every one of the 15 or so ads on the landing page had been bought by Michael Bloomberg. It became impossible to watch a 30-minute sitcom without seeing either Bloomberg or Steyer – or both – in multiple commercial breaks. At times, their ads ran back-t0-back-to-back.

It was, frankly, exhausting.

And what did these two men get for their trouble? What measure of success did they buy with their billion dollars of political spending? According to NBC News, in the only measure that actually matters in a nominating race, the delegate count, Bloomberg secured a grand total of 48 delegates, while Steyer came up with a big, fat zero.

Steyer and Bloomberg aren’t the only examples of big-money campaigns flaming out in recent history, i.e., since Donald Trump came along. Hillary Clinton was able to spend $2 billion on her presidential bid in 2016, outspending candidate Trump by a 3 to 1 margin, and still managed to lose. As I discussed in yesterday’s Campaign Update, Jeb! Bush frittered away roughly $300 million in the GOP primary process and failed to win a single delegate.

Both Clinton and Bush organized the exact same sort of traditional big-money campaigns that Bloomberg and Steyer did, hiring all the best people and ad agencies and social media and polling firms. The only thing all that money brought to them in the end was the stench of desperation and miserable failure.

Meanwhile, Trump’s campaign consisted of Corey Lewandowski and about a dozen other people. He actively campaigned against the DC-based professional political class, calling them all a part of the DC Swamp that he was coming to Washington to drain. The fact that Trump won by running such an overtly anti-political class campaign is why they all hate him so, and why the few such pros who have chosen to work for Trump have become pariahs among others in their profession.

Now comes this cycle’s Democrat nominating process, and all the candidates who have raised gobs of money only to flame out of the process. And it isn’t just Bloomberg and Steyer: Beto O’Rourke, fresh off spending a whopping $90 million and losing a Texas Senate race in 2018, initially raised tons of cash, only to see his public appeal crash and burn. Kamala Harris was the early favorite of both the corrupt news media and the DC professional political class. She also raised a ton of early cash and she also crashed and burned, flaming out before we even moved into 2020.

Bernie Sanders has consistently led the Democrat field in fundraising, the vast majority of it from small-money contributors. He even managed to become the clear front-runner in the race for about 30 seconds before Joe Biden, his campaign almost dead broke and having been largely written off by all the “experts” just 10 days before, came storming back in South Carolina on Saturday.

Biden then parlayed the momentum out of South Carolina to sweeping wins in 9 of 14 states on Super Tuesday, and is suddenly back in the driver’s seat with a clear path to being able to win the majority of delegates needed to secure the party’s nomination on the first ballot at its July convention in Milwaukee. You haven’t seen any slick, high-dollar Joe Biden ads because he hasn’t had the money to fund them. Biden wasn’t really worried about Steyer and Bloomberg creating a talent shortage in the available professional political class, because he hasn’t had the money to hire any of them anyway.

The reality of the last 10 days is that Joe Biden has been able to dispatch the billionaires and jump back into the clear lead in this race while running essentially the same kind of campaign that Trump ran throughout 2015 and 2016. It’s a campaign based almost purely on earned media and the candidate’s personality.

True, Biden’s personality is not remotely similar to Trump’s, but it doesn’t need to be. Biden is appealing to a completely different subset of the American people than Trump targeted 4 years ago. Trump was messaging to the part of the population that wants to clean out the Swamp. Biden is appealing to voters who want mythical free stuff from the government, and if that means the rehabilitation and perpetuation of the Swamp, they don’t care. Doing that requires a different kind of character and different messages, but the construct of the campaigns are strikingly similar.

The fact of the matter is that Trump has changed the requirements for what it takes to run a successful presidential campaign in modern times and we are seeing that reality play out in real time in this Democrat race for the nomination. While all the “experts” in the DC pundit class are still portraying Sanders as the “outsider” in this race, the truth is that Sanders has run a depressingly conventional campaign filled with slick TV ads, social media buys and a massive paid staff of political pros.

Biden hasn’t done that, but only – and this is key – because he hasn’t been able to raise the money required to fund that kind of campaign. But now, since his big showing on Super Tuesday, the money is suddenly pouring in. With Bloomberg now promising to pour gobs of his own money into Super PACs and other third party efforts supporting Biden, you can now expect the confused former Vice President’s campaign to start bringing in a bunch of ex-Bloomberg staff and, as a result, begin looking a lot like Bloomberg’s campaign – and by extension, just like the Hillary Clinton campaign looked four years ago.

This will happen to Biden because the candidate himself is likely as clueless about the real nature of his recent success as he is about which state he happens to be in on any given day. And you can bet that none of the political pros on his staff are going to put their own jobs in jeopardy by telling him.

In an appearance on Fox News last night, Trump advisor Kellyanne Conway told host Martha MacCallum that she thinks Joe Biden will end up being this year’s Hillary Clinton. She’s exactly right because, having helped to create it, she understands the way Donald Trump has forever changed the nature of our presidential politics.

That is all.

Harvey Weinstein Now Locked in a New York Prison – Just Like Jeffrey Epstein

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

Is it time to start the new #WeinsteinDidntKillHimself hashtag yet? – With Harvey Weinstein now headed off to prison on Rikers Island in New York City and holding so many deep, dark secrets about powerful Democrats and Hollywood figures in his creepy head, the countdown on how many days will pass before he suffers some form of highly-suspicious death has begun. Who knows? Maybe he will “Epstein” himself soon, or be the only person in a very crowded prison to somehow contract the Coronavirus. That would be, like, totally believable.

Weinstein is a man who was a huge Democrat fundraiser and donor for a quarter century that spanned the duration of the Clinton and Obama presidencies. The beneficiaries of his largess include the Fainting Felon, Barack Hussein Obama His Own Self, John Kerry, Al Franken, Cory Booker, Al Gore, Bill Clinton, the Clinton Foundation, the Democrat National Committee, and as mentioned in yesterday’s Evening Update, Michael Bloomberg.

Over that quarter century, Weinstein hob-nobbed with all of these people, took trips with many of them, organized massive Hollywood fundraisers for them, held parties in their honor, and even, in the case of the Obamas, hired their 16-year-old daughters as interns. This is a guy who knows where all the Democrat bodies are buried, including Seth Rich’s and Jeffrey Epstein’s in all likelihood.

The frequency with which people in Weinstein’s bulbous shoes end up dying in highly-mysterious circumstances has become such a visible national phenomenon that we now have national figures semi-joking about it. As an example, former Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich, recently pardoned by President Donald Trump, issued this nervous tweet last night:

To be clear, Blago is one of the rare people who find themselves in his particular circumstance whose obvious concerns are not directed at anyone named Clinton. Remember, Blagojevich is the guy who went to prison for actively seeking bribes in the selling of the U.S. Senate seat being vacated in 2007 by one Barack Obama. And here’s the deal: The record appears to indicate that Obama was himself involved in that operation.

So, yeah, if Blago goes bye bye, we do all know who’s behind it. It’s just that nobody wants to say it out loud. So many people who possess inconvenient knowledge about Democrat Party heroes have died under suspicious circumstances over the last 30 years that it has long gone past the joking point.

Take a look at the current case of one Phillip Haney, a high-ranking DHS official during the Obama years who decided to turn whistleblower over what he said was the Obama Administration’s systematic efforts to cover up the infiltration of DHS and other federal agencies by radical Islamists.

Haney was found shot and killed in a park and ride lot in Amador County, California last Saturday. The pistol from which the fatal shot had been fired was discovered next to his body. The Amador County Coroner’s office quickly knee-jerked to a finding of “suicide” in Haney’s death, despite the fact that he had recently told friends that he was concerned that someone was trying to kill him.

Yesterday, the Coroner – who works for the Amador County Sheriff’s office – issued a second statement claiming that no finding of suicide had ever been issued, and that its investigation into the killing was still ongoing.

But here’s a copy of the original finding, which clearly states that the gunshot was “self-inflicted”:

Typically in English-speaking societies – which the U.S. still largely is despite the best efforts of the Democrat Party – the term “self-inflicted” as related to a fatal wound means the subject committed suicide. Either that, or perhaps the Amador County Sheriff’s Department is about to claim Haney accidentally killed himself while cleaning his gun as he waited for a bus in a park and ride parking lot.

Maybe it’s all just innocent confusion out there in Amador County, California. Hell, it probably is.

The problem, though, is that the Democrats in general and the Clintons in particular, have been surrounded for so many years by so many inconvenient people who conveniently died under highly suspicious circumstances that the accumulation of events long ago stretched far past the point of credulity. It’s happened so many times related to the Clinton that “Arkancide” has become a popular term in American culture.

It’s all very much like the Kennedy Assassination: In order to believe the official version that Lee Harvey Oswald acted alone in the killing of the President that day, one has to ignore literally hundreds upon hundreds of odd coincidences, witness statements, known associations, contradictory forensic evidence and dozens of outright admissions by people claiming to have been participants.

So, call me a conspiracy theorist if you like, but at some point the weight of accumulated evidence simply overwhelms the official narrative. That’s where the Clintons, Obamas, and the DNC have arrived with all of these instances of inconvenient people dying very convenient – and suspicious – deaths.

Harvey Weinstein’s lawyers appeared on “The Story” with Martha Macallum last night, and expressed their concerns about how their client’s “health” might be affected while in prison. They have every reason to be very, very concerned.

#WeinsteinDidntKillHimself. Might as well get it started now.

Change Election, or Status Quo? 2020 is Both.

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

2020 is shaping up to be the most unique election cycle of modern times. – Regular readers will know of my contention that the quadrennial presidential election cycles always end up following one of two patterns, based on the overall dynamics at play within the national electorate.

If the general attitude among the population is one of satisfaction and complacency, then we end up having a status quo election, one that preserves the general balance of power in Washington, DC. If the general attitude among voters is one of dissatisfaction and unrest, we end up with a change election, one that shifts the balance of power from one party to the other.

By mid-2015, it had become obvious that the overriding attitude afoot across the nation was running in favor of a change election. By October of that year, it was obvious that Donald Trump would be the GOP nominee and that the DNC was going to fix its nominating process for the Pantsuit Princess. Given that the Coughing Crook was proudly running on the promise that her first term would basically be Barack Obama’s third term, it was obvious to me that Trump, the only candidate in the race promising significant change, would end up winning the general election.

2012 was a classic status quo election: Despite growing unrest with the radical leftist nature of the Obama regulatory regime, more Americans than not were in a mood to give him a shot at a second term, a reality bolstered by the fact that the Democrats were able to increase their Senate majority and cut into the GOP’s majority in the House that year. Mitt Romney’s ineptitude as a candidate certainly played a role, but the truth is that he never really had much chance of overcoming the overall voter inertia at play that year.

In large part due to the withering, unrelenting assault on President Trump by the Democrats and their corrupt toadies in the national news media, and due to Trump’s own unorthodox approach to his job, this year has become more difficult to read than it otherwise would be. Were traditional journalistic norms still in place in the media, an election featuring a president who has had so much success and who has kept pretty much every promise he made in his first election campaign would without any question at all end up as a status quo election, with his party having a strong shot at regaining the majority in the House.

But the undeniable success that the media has had in brainwashing a large segment of the public, along with the upheaval taking place within the Democrat Party and its nominating process, has created at least the perception of a potential change election coming.

So, which is it going to be? I think it’s going to be both: A change election within the confines of the Democrat Party and its nominating process, but a status quo election come November.

The most interesting aspect to watch over the next 8 months will be to see if the radical change happening within the Democrat Party will frighten the public to the extent that it decides to flip the House and return control of all levers of national power back to the GOP.

Newt Gingrich got it exactly right on Fox News last night when he said that Bernie Sanders is “the true Democratic Party.” Sanders winning in Iowa and New Hampshire and today in Nevada is not, contrary to what the leaders of the Party want us to believe, some fluke. Sanders keeps winning because the Democrat Party is now a majority socialist/Marxist party. Sanders is now the clear front-runner for the nomination because he is where the energy in the Democrat voter base happens to be.

He wasn’t quite there in 2016, but the tide of sentiment among Democrat voters has now reached the critical mass of endorsing outright socialism. Thus, the Party’s so-called “moderate” faction, who prefer socialist solutions dressed up in pretty costumes and gobs of lipstick, will be faced this July with the choice of either jumping on board the Commie train or finding another home. 2020 is the year that the Democrat Party’s inevitable inflection point arrives.

Feel the Bern. Feel the change.

Just as was the case with the Party’s takeover by George McGovern radicals in 1972, though, the radicals in the Democrat Party today are out of step with the vast majority of the electorate, and a Bernie Sanders candidacy will go down in flames not seen since Ronald Reagan’s destruction of Walter Mondale in 1984. A public that Gallup says is more satisfied with the status quo than it has been in decades is not going to put an outright communist into the White House.

So, come November, the status quo will pretty much inevitably prevail despite the change election taking place within the Democrat Party’s nominating process. Some will try to equate this to 2016, when Trump forced a similar shaking out to take place within the GOP, but that’s not correct. Remember, the change Trump represented was in step with the overall public desire for change that year. That election was change all the way, and the results proved it.

So, get ready for that rarest of rarities: A presidential election year in which a change election within the process of one party works to ensure a status quo general election outcome in favor of the other party.

Only in America.

That is all.

Mini-Mike Sends up an Ominous Trial Balloon

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

Michael Bloomberg sent up a trial balloon on Saturday that should have us all very, very concerned. Mini-Mike had one or more of his lieutenants tell the Drudge Report that he is interested in picking the Pantsuit Princess to be his running mate should he win the Democrat Party’s presidential nomination. This is a very ominous sign that the entire Democrat Party is still working to install the most corrupt politician in American history in the nation’s highest office.

Regular readers here will know that I don’t believe Mr. Bloomberg is really interested in serving four years as President. The man is 78 years old, would be 79 a few weeks following his theoretical inauguration, and appears to have all the energy of the average tree sloth.

What he does have, though, is dollars – billions upon billions of dollars. Meanwhile, the Democrat National Committee is flat, dead broke. Its fundraising flat-lined over the last three years and it is deeply in debt, negating its ability to pour money into the campaigns of vulnerable Democrats in house and senate races.

Bloomberg hates Donald Trump from way back, and agreed to a plan to step in to fill the funding void left by the DNC’s absence of money. The most cost-effective way for Mini-Mike to do that is to declare himself a candidate and run hundreds of millions of dollars of anti-Trump TV and social media ads. Being a “candidate” allows him to qualify for preferential ad rates offered by the media to politicians, and allows him to pour as much of his personal fortune as he wants to without restrictions that apply to contributions to political parties or PACs.

Don’t get me wrong: Bloomberg wants to win the election, and he has deployed his billions to build out what is becoming a massive political operation that is going to allow him to buy an awful lot of votes on Super Tuesday, out of which he will almost certainly emerge as the only legitimate challenger to a takeover of the Democrat Party by The Commie, Bernie Sanders. But he just doesn’t have any intention of serving out a term in office.

Bloomberg has long been tied in with the Clintons and their despicable friends like Harvey Weinstein and Jeffrey Epstein, and has obvious reasons to want to ensure that President Trump does not win a second term in office. He has also profited immensely from globalism and all the unbalanced trade agreements that Trump is in the process of ending, and thus has a compelling personal financial interest in helping to execute a return to the old world order.

What better way to do that than to serve as the stalking horse for the Coughing Crook? Pick her as a running mate, win the November election, get sworn in and shortly thereafter develop some “health reason” for resigning. Suddenly, you have executed the Democrat Party’s four-year effort to reverse the results of the 2016 election and ensured the quick death of the American Republic.

So, the “leak” to the Drudge Report was likely just Bloomberg and the Democrats testing the waters to gauge the reaction by the pundits and the public. This first step will allow them to poll and focus group test new messages designed to build acceptance for such a ticket in the public’s collective mind.

You can expect both the Bloomberg camp and the Fainting Felon to start rolling those messages out in the days and weeks to come.

Just in case you don’t believe that The Commie is the clear front-runner in the Democrat race now, look at the results of the new YouGov poll:

Image may contain: 2 people

If The Commie can find ways to win both Nevada (likely) and South Carolina (where only a rapidly-fading Quid Pro Joe might be able to prevail) over the next two weeks, Mini-Mike may not be able to head him off. Waiting until Super Tuesday to get into the race was always a risky strategic move by Mini-Mike. As things stand right now, with Sanders also leading big in California and surging in several of the other Super Tuesday states, it may turn out to have been too late.

Fun.

That is all.

Could Amy Klobuchar Emerge From the New Hampshire Pack?

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

I know, I know, but don’t laugh.  – The Democrat Party has a long history of seeing surprise candidates emerge out of the New Hampshire primary. What’s interesting about this history is that the “surprise” has often not come with who won the primary, but in a candidate who finished as a surprisingly strong also-ran.

In 1972, Edmund Muskie won the primary as he was predicted to do, but it was radical-leftist candidate George McGovern who stole the thunder coming out of the Granite State, finishing in a surprisingly strong second place with over 37% of the vote. McGovern rode the momentum of that strong second place showing all the way to the nomination, culminating his year with an historic landslide loss to Richard Nixon.

In 1976, Jimmy Carter defied the pre-primary polls, narrowly defeating both Mo Udall and Birch Bayh to become the clear front-runner in the race for the nomination.

Colorado Senator Gary Hart shocked the pundits with a big win in New Hampshire over Walter Mondale in 1984. But it was the second-place finisher who ended up winning the nomination and the right to be the Democrats’ sacrificial lamb against Ronald Reagan.

Senator Paul Tsongas entered the 1992 New Hampshire primary with a strong polling lead over a crowded field, and to no one’s surprise, ended up winning. But it was Bill Clinton who stole the show, coming in second after having been basically written-off by all the “smart people” in Washington following a virtual no-show in the Iowa Caucuses. In his speech that evening, Clinton declared himself to be the “comeback kid,” and a fawning national press corps fell in love with him. The race for the nomination essentially ended that night.

Many will not remember that the Pantsuit Princess actually made a comeback of her own in New Hampshire in 2008, narrowly winning the primary following a poor showing in Iowa of her own. But despite losing, Barack Obama His Own Self stole the show with a powerful speech, and the same corrupt media that had jumped on the Clinton team in 1992 immediately signed up to play a similar role on Team Obama.

The Commie won big in New Hampshire in 2016, capturing 60% of the vote to 37% for the Fainting Felon. But by then the Clinton camp owned the DNC lock, stock and barrel, and succeeded in rigging the process against Sanders for the rest of the way.

So, who’s going to be the surprise of this year’s primary? It could very well be Amy Klobuchar, Senator from [checks notes] Minnesota. No one really took a Klobuchar candidacy seriously when she decided to enter the race over a year ago, and who knows – maybe last week’s 13%, 5th place finish in Iowa will turn out to have been her high water mark in the race.

But I keep getting this pesky feeling that she might surprise us.

Klobuchar has had a hard time raising money; she isn’t a flashy person who gets attention by shouting or cussing or making outrageous statements like so many of her competitors do; and she carries with her the baggage of a reputation as being one of the most abusive bosses on Capitol Hill. This is not an admirable person, but hey, she’s a Democrat so that doesn’t matter.

But she has basically become this race’s tortoise, plugging slowly but steadily behind a field of hares, slowly gaining ground on the field as they go off on their tirades and tangents. The photo that accompanies this piece captures the essence of her candidacy perfectly, standing there calmly, with a disapproving look on her face, in the midst of a pack of braying jackasses. It reminds me of the look my dear mother used to get when she would catch me and my brothers fighting in the back yard.

That photo is from last Friday’s debate, during which Klobuchar, by all accounts, had a pretty strong showing. I wouldn’t know, because I just cannot bring myself to waste 2-3 hours watching those things. But that seems to be the consensus.

Klobuchar has also been drawing some pretty strong crowds this week in New Hampshire, at least “strong” in the context of this Democrat race, where getting a high school gymnasium half-filled with voters and staff constitutes a “strong” turnout.

Klobuchar’s other main asset as a candidate is the storm that constantly brews around her in the form of the three braying jackasses in that photo, along with Preacher Pete and Faucahontas. Think about it: Klobuchar is the only candidate among those six who has not had a nickname bestowed upon her by President Donald Trump.

Finally, there is Klobuchar’s reputation as being a “moderate” among this field of leftist lunatics. As Joe Biden and his “electability” image rapidly implode, all of his voters are going to be looking to land somewhere. It seems to be that Klobuchar fills that bill better than any of the other candidates on the New Hampshire ballot, which does not include billionaire Mike Bloomberg.

All of these factors are combining to give me a sneaking suspicion that, when the dust settles late Tuesday evening, Amy Klobuchar might well be this year’s “surprise” coming out of New Hampshire. She isn’t going to win – The Commie almost certainly will do that unless the DNC can figure out a way to defraud the vote as it did in Iowa – but given the shifting dynamics in the field this week, it is conceivable she might receive more votes than Quid Pro Joe and/or Fauxcahontas.

Finishing ahead of either of those two would qualify Klobuchar as a “surprise.” Beating both of them would constitute a shock to the Democrat system. Either place would rocket her up to the top of speculation about being a running mate for the eventual nominee.

Tomorrow will be very, very interesting.

That is all.

Iowa Fallout: The Commie Ascending, Quid Pro Joe in Free Fall

Tired of all this WINNING yet? – All major stock indexes – the Dow, the NASDAQ and the S&P 500 –  closed a record highs on Thursday yet again as the Trump economy keeps chugging along. Wednesday’s ADP private sector jobs report for January came in at a whopping 291,000 jobs added, almost doubling “expert” projections of 150,000. That news, of course, was ignored by our corrupt national news media. The Labor Department non-farm jobs report comes out this morning.

The Commie declares “victory” in Iowa. – Why? Because he won. At least, he won by any rational measure. That measure would be the actual number of people who came out and cast their first round and second round lots with the old Bolshevik.

The Commie won the first round of voting by more than 6,000 over second place Preacher Pete, and then, after the non-viable candidates were eliminated and their voters had to either re-pledge themselves to other candidates or go home, The Commie won the second round by a more narrow margin. It was then and only then that the “counters” from the DNC running the Iowa process were able to rig a miniscule “win” for Preacher Pete, somehow managing through an allocation process no one understands to award 26.2% of the state delegates to the failed Mayor of South Ben to 26.1% for the do-nothing Senator from Vermont.

Tom Perez, the utterly corrupt head of the DNC, was so upset by Sanders’ victory declaration that he immediately ordered his toadies out in Iowa to re-canvass the vote. He does that not on the belief that it would somehow change any of the confused outcome, but in order to throw even more confusion into the process in order to further obscure Sanders’ clear win.

Because, hey, if they can’t rig the outcome they prefer, the next best thing is to coordinate with their media toadies to confuse the public about who really won. This is your Democrat Party in action. It’s all very transparent if you just pay attention.

But all this confusion over who “won” in Iowa kind of misses the point, anyway. There were two big stories coming out of that fiasco, both of them terrible news for the Democrats and the DNC:

  • Total voter turnout was somewhere around 170,000, which puts it in line with the Democrat turnout in Iowa for 2012, when Barack Hussein Obama His Own Self was running unopposed. Party officials had speculated that turnout would compare to the 2008 turnout, when almost 240,000 Iowans showed up to pick between Obama and the Fainting Felon. This low turnout number indicates a party headed for a sea-change loss election in November. Thus, it has been largely ignored by the corrupt news media.
  • Joe Biden is in free-fall now. He failed to win a single county or a single national delegate under the party’s Byzantine formula for allocation of delegates, even though he did receive slightly above 15% of the vote, at least if you believe the DNC “counters,” which you should not. This is terrible news for the DNC and the party’s major donor base, who had held out hope that Biden would be able to stave off The Commie.

Biden’s numbers are also now collapsing in other early primary states. In the two most recent polls out of New Hampshire, he comes in at just 11%, not even half of The Commie’s level of support. In South Carolina, where Biden has consistently held a 25-30% margin thanks to heavy support in that state’s Black community, a new Zogby Analytics poll shows his lead sitting at just 8% over The Commie. A recent Post and Courier poll pegs his lead at just 5%. Polls show Quid Pro Joe and The Commie running neck and neck in Nevada, the only other contest before Super Tuesday.

Right now it appears likely that Biden will run no better than a poor 4th place in New Hampshire, and probably will not win any delegates there, either. That from the guy that the DNC has promoted for 10 solid months as its most “electable” candidate. If the bottom falls out up there, then it seems possible now that the Unfrozen Caveman Senator could even lose in South Carolina and go into Super Tuesday without having won a single contest. If that happens, he is well and truly done.

Biden’s problem is simple: He is clearly too old and infirm for the job. That is obvious to anyone who actually pays attention to him. While Sanders is a little bit older than Quid Pro Joe, he at least is holding things together, despite his heart incident last October. But Biden often doesn’t know where he is on any given day, and increasingly looks lost while speaking to his paltry audiences.

He was able to get away with all of that up until voters actually began paying attention to the race, which has really just begun to happen over the last few weeks, as the caucus and primary contests approach. Voters are now tuning in, and what they see in Biden obviously disturbs them.

The reality of Biden – as opposed to the myth of “electability” that he and the DNC have promoted since last April – combined with the months-long headlines about his and Hunter Biden’s looting of the Ukraine while he served as Vice President, is why his numbers are in free-fall.

A reader asked yesterday if Biden would turn out to be this election cycle’s Jeb! Bush. I replied that he already is, but he just hasn’t quite figured it out yet. Jeb! himself didn’t figure it out until it was already over for him. Biden will, however, figure it out soon, perhaps after a loss in South Carolina, or no later than what will almost certainly become a disastrous showing on Super Tuesday.

My new odds for the Eventual Winner of the Democrat Party’s Nomination:

The Commie               7 to 4

Mini-Mike                  4 to 1

Fauxcahontas           10 to 1

Preacher Pete           10 to 1

Quid Pro Joe            30 to 1

Tom Steyer               30 to 1

Someone Else           2 to 1

Who, you ask, is that Someone Else? Well, who do you think?

How the Democrats Rigged Iowa’s “Results”

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

So, here’s what actually happened in Iowa on Tuesday:

Just like clockwork, ABC and others reported Tuesday afternoon that people from the DNC showed up and “took over” the count early in the day.

The DNC then decided which results would be published, and when. The riggers had several clear objectives here: 1) disguise the true voter turnout for the caucuses, which was disastrously low, showing a Party headed for sea-change losses in November; 2) find a “winner” based on partial results other than The Commie; and 3) prop up Quid Pro Joe as best they could.

To achieve those three goals, the DNC carefully selected at least one precinct result from every Iowa County, as the Democrat State Chairman was careful to state during his press conference at 4:00 p.m. Central Time. This canard gives the appearance of some thoroughness and “fairness” in the count, while at the same time limiting it in a way that delivered the preferred “results.”

You almost have to admire the evil genius at work here, don’t you?

The carefully-selected 62% of the votes ultimately revealed meet the needs of showing someone – anyone – other than The Commie as the “winner.” That person turned out to be Preacher Pete, who had received more raw votes than anyone other than The Commie.

[If you are feeling doubtful here about what I’m telling you, ask yourself this question: Why just 62%? Where did that percentage come from? The State Chairman who got shoved out there to talk to the press repeatedly stated that they had all the vote totals, safe and secure. And how could they not by that time, given the low voter turnout? But, conveniently, not one single reporter present had the curiosity to question why 100% of the results were not announced yesterday. Why? Because they are all on board with the preferred narrative.] 

Quid Pro Joe’s vote totals were only about half of The Commie’s, so he was non-viable to be the DNC’s hand-picked stand-in “winner.” However, the DNC precinct-pickers were able to rig things so that the Unfrozen Caveman Senator came in at just above 15%, at least for now, providing the illusion that he will ultimately qualify to win some delegates from the state. Thus, while the media narrative related to Creepy Uncle Joe was negative overall, corrupt talking heads were able to end their analyses with some variation of “but he did well enough to win some delegates.”

Faucahontas didn’t even manage to win Pocahontas County, so she was non-viable as well.

Preacher Pete got to declare “victory” and steal the momentum that The Commie would have otherwise had coming out of Iowa. Even better, the failed Mayor of South Bend was able to make that declaration while campaigning New Hampshire, thus stealing even more of the Big Mo from The Commie.

By the time the full results are ultimately released later this week or next week – who knows at this point? –  the news cycle will have passed and moved on to State of the Union and today’s Senate acquittal of President Trump. Even if the results show a Commie win, the corrupt media will studiously ignore them on the claim that they amount to “old news.”

The same dynamic comes into play where the low voter turnout is concerned. Had the real numbers been reported Monday night as they should have been, the corrupt talking heads would have had no choice but to focus in on them, at least for awhile. But, coming now in the wake of this week’s other major events, CNN probably won’t bother to even mention them in a chyron at the bottom of their fake news screen.

Thus, The Commie, even though he was the candidate who clearly won the most raw votes Monday night, is cheated out of any appearance of being the Party’s front-runner. For the evil cretins who run the DNC, this rigging operation in Iowa staves off a media disaster for at least another week.

Sure will be fun to see how they cheat The Commie out of a win in New Hampshire, won’t it?

But what about Buttigieg? We should not for a moment believe that the Party leaders and major donors want to promote Preacher Pete, either. He was just the candidate they were able to prop up in this particular state. Buttigieg is wildly unpopular among the Party’s most important – and most taken-for-granted – constituency, Black voters. Preacher Pete somehow managed to find half a dozen African American women to use as props sitting right behind him during his “victory” speech, but he had to work very hard to find them:

Black voters hate this guy, and it has nothing to do with his being gay. South Bend is a horribly-segregated city, and Preacher Pete did nothing during his 8 long years as Mayor to do anything about it.

It is a plain and simple fact that no Democrat can win the presidency without carrying, at a minimum, 90% of the Black vote. Preacher Pete would be lucky to receive half of that.

So, he is definitely not the guy the DNC wants to end up rigging this process in favor of.

With the rapid collapse of Quid Pro Joe now in full gear, the Party riggers are obviously going to shift their efforts in favor of Mini-Mike Bloomberg. Mr. Excitement. They’ve already shifted, in fact, announcing last week that they have changed their debate qualifying requirements to meet the billionaire’s personal needs. No doubt, they’ll get him that box to stand on, too.

So, as I’ve talked about repeatedly here over the last three years, this is just how today’s Democrat Party works. These people have no intention whatsoever of leaving the selection of their presidential nominee to the riff-raff in their voter base – these caucuses and primaries are just for show. The DNC’s job is to create and somehow maintain it’s narrative, in careful coordination with its corrupt media toadies, throughout the sham process.

In fact, this entire proportional awarding of delegates in each state was put into place for the specific purpose of ensuring there will be a split convention. Because a split convention is the easiest way for the DNC riggers to select the candidate of their choice, while making it seem like the voters had a voice.

Right now, they’re desperately trying to rig things in favor of Mini-Mike. But should Mr. Excitement falter – which seems inevitable, frankly – a split convention gives the riggers a chance to rig things for a “white knight” to ride in to save the Party. Or, if it’s the Pantsuit Princess again, waddle in to save the Party.

This is just how today’s Democrats roll, folks. Get used to it.

 

That is all.

The Democrat Party is in Need of an Old-Fashioned Purge

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

Guest Piece by Gregg Updike

The fundamental problem with the Democratic Party is that for decades they have been actively recruiting every disparate minority group they can find or create – most of whom have an axe to grind – and have tried to cobble together a majority of minorities as a means to win elections against America’s white majority. There was an article in a major newspaper, circa 2011, during the “One’s” ramp up for reelection in 2012 reflecting this strategy.

The DNC, Obama, and the MSM, after successfully guilting white America into voting for a “historic” (half) Black president who was “articulate and bright and clean”, realized they were in trouble after they overwhelmingly lost the House in 2010.  This was the direct result of ramming his unpopular and entirely partisan passed Obamacare down America’s collective throat, and resulted in the emergence of the TEA (Taxed Enough Already) Party, and other anti-Obama organizations.

Obama, having lost much of the warm and fuzzy good-will that swept him into the presidency, and political capital, made the decision to jettison the idea of appealing to the country’s white majority middle class (the people who Hillary Clinton would later describe as an “irredeemable basket of deplorables”).  The Dems essentially said they are no longer interested in, nor will they any longer court the white male blue-collar union base that was the strength of the Dem party since FDR.   Presently the Democratic coalition is a motley collection of diverse (root word of diverse is divide) groups which has no core unifying glue or message to hold it together except that Trump and Republicans suck, and must be politically defeated.

This cultivated strategy is beginning to backfire on them in a spectacular manner.  Their radical groups are not silent obedient toadies and actually want their point of view heard, respected, and acted upon.  Unfortunately for the Dems, many of these points of view are diametrically opposed to each other.  Examples: Muslims are vehemently opposed to homosexually, legal immigrants and naturalized citizens are opposed to illegals getting a free ride, and big banks and capitalism are lined up against Bernie’s communism.

Meanwhile, President Trump, by displaying heretofore unseen strong common sense leadership, has exposed the fraud of the Democratic Party for all to see.  He has successfully exposed them, his agenda has been beneficial for ALL Americans, and he is destroying their media and academia controlled PC thought police monopoly.  That is why he is so hated by the left and the never-Trumper Republicans, and why they are working so hard to sabotage his administration and remove him from office, or make him unelectable.  It has completely failed and made Trump’s reelection all but certain, especially when his potential opponents are considered.

Bottom line: The person who could unite the Democratic Party simply doesn’t exist, while Trump has been historically successful in uniting his Republican base and attracting many previously Democratic minority groups who have realized they have been used by the Democratic Party and are #Walk(ing) Away in large numbers.  Consequently the DNC finds itself in quite a pickle.

If I were running the DNC, I would do the following:

Let Sanders win the nomination and then suffer a 1972 McGovern-like defeat, along with massive down ballot losses, thereby forcing the radical communists out of the party – we gave you a legitimate shot and you lost bigly; now be gone and go back the Communist Party USA and be the 3% irrelevant population splinter group that you are and have always been.

(The GOP suffered massive losses in 1974 and 1976 in the wake of Nixon’s Watergate, but rebounded by 1980 with Ronald Reagan and his coattails.  Face reality, take your lumps, learn, and move on.)

Get rid of the Clintons and their toxic influence in the party.

Divorce your party from the idiotic Hollywood crowd – their influence is waning and they are every bit as toxic as the Clintons.

Purge the party of all the old fossilized war horses who appeal to no one, particularly the millennials.  This election will help in their retirements by securing long term minority status for the Democratic Party. It is not fun to be in the minority in congress and the old guard will get out while the getting is good and retire with their millions.

Find and recruit some moderate, pragmatic, appealing, and intelligent candidates who fundamentally see the good in America as founded, and run on and actually believe in a positive pro-America agenda, as John F. Kennedy did in his 1960 campaign.

While most of the congressional old guard will willingly leave once they realize their minority party status for the foreseeable future is a reality, the young radical activists in the “Squad” and other divisive factions will need to be primaried or relegated to impotence with minor committee assignments and have their campaigns defunded by the DNC.

I realize leaders of the Democratic Party will never do this, and thus they will become more and more irrelevant, which is a good thing for America.  I predict the Democratic Party brand will be irreparably damaged, and break up.  When that happens, a new party will emerge with new leadership and a new message.  It will no doubt be liberal, but it will be, at least at first, a reasonable counter to a more conservative Republican Party; a Republican Party which will also be forced to undergo its own metamorphosis and evolve into a genuine conservative party.

The media will also be forced to reform itself, or it will ultimately die with a viewership of only about ten percent of the country watching or believing them.  Sooner or later, the outside money propping them up will dry up and they will have to compete for advertising dollars by being truthful and “fair and balanced”.  To that end NPR and NPT should be defunded as they are obsolete, serve no purpose and need to be forced to stand on their own merits; taxpayers don’t need to be forced to fund a liberal-lite mouthpiece that has a smaller audience than CNN.

 

That is all.

Democrats: You Could Never Make Them up, Not in a Million Years

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

Some observations on the passing scene…

So, he’s just like Mitt Romney, then. – At the trial of big Democrat donor Harvey Weinstein on Friday, one of the monster’s many victims testified that Weinstein has no testicles.

The Junior Senator from Utah could not be reached for comment.

Do better, Utah voters. Please.

It was just another average day in Iowa for the nation’s Unfrozen Caveman Senator:

Speaking of Quid Pro Joe, two days after President Donald Trump (I will never tire of typing those three glorious words in sequence) held a rally that attracted well over 15,000 in Des Moines, here is a high school gym in Cedar Rapids being set up for a Biden “rally”:

That’s right: There are about 40 chairs set up in circular formation on the floor of the gym. This is the guy who the nation’s corrupt news media and its Democrat masters want you to believe is such a threat that President Trump tried to rig the 2020 election against him with the Ukraine. Folks, Joe Biden is not even a threat to Pete Buttigieg and Amy Klobuchar.

Charlie Kirk makes a really strong point here:

Think about the ages of the House Leadership, combined with the ages of the three leading Democrat presidential contenders – Biden, Bernie and Bloomberg – all of whom are 77 or older. The average American worker retires before the age of 65, yet these elderly people still cling to power and seek even more of it as they approach octogenarian status.

Ask yourself why that is? Is it simply that political power is its own narcotic? Or could it have something to do with the fact that each and every one of these people other than Bloomberg somehow managed to accumulate massive amounts of wealth while never earning even a $200,000 annual salary?

The answer here is obvious. For those who play the game, being a certified denizen of the DC Swamp is its own reward.

And by the way, if you don’t believe the three old white guys I mentioned above are indeed the three front-runners for the Democrat nomination because that’s not yet who the polls say they are, take a look at the latest betting odds:

You can look at polls and cite them to me all you want, but I will tell you that the people putting down real, hard-earned money on who is the most likely winner of this clown-show nominating battle are a far more reliable gauge of how the race is really stacking up this far out from its conclusion. You should expect Bloomberg to continue to rise in this ranking as he plows through his personal fortune trying to buy the nomination, and the clearly infirm Biden to keep dropping.

But…but…but AOC says we’re all gonna be dead by 2030! – The increasingly insufferable loooooooser from Georgia, failed gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams, told the always certain but always wrong prognosticator Nate Silver on Friday that she has a master plan for her life in which she will be elected president of the United States by the year 2040.

Given that the Democrat Party’s talking points on Climate Change variously claim that we will all be dead in 5 years or 10 years or 12 years or 6 years, depending on the day of the week and the phase of the moon, it seems like the Portly Petunia might be in need of speeding up her life’s timetable just a bit.

Democrats: If they didn’t already exist, no one could ever make them up, not in a million years. And honestly, who in their right mind would want to?

That is all.
