Today’s Campaign Update
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)
Hey, remember when the Democrats pretended they might not try to impeach President Donald Trump while the were campaigning last year? – Yeah, that mask has come off completely now. Michigan’s (not Minnesota’s, as I orginally said – my apologies to all Minnesotans) new Muslim rookie congressperson, someone named Rashida Tlaib, told a gathering of leftist radicals last night that “We’re gonna go in and impeach the motherf*cker.” At least she did if you believe the multiple fake reporters who covered the event, which we all know is a bit of a crap shoot.
Tlaib apparently wasn’t aware the leering press was in that particular room, but hey, it’s always good to know exactly what leftist radical morons are thinking, to the extent they actually engage in thought processes at all. She had left the profanities out of an op/ed published yesterday by the Detroit Free Press, probably because someone on her staff wrote it for her.
In that piece she is credited with saying that “We already have overwhelming evidence that the president has committed impeachable offenses,” she wrote, accusing Trump of “abuse of power and abuse of the public trust“. The fact that none of that is actually true is of no concern to someone who clings to a philosophy that dictates that “truth” not only does not matter, it doesn’t even exist.
As if to emphasize Tlaib’s point, earlier in the day, Democrat Brad Sherman of California re-introduced an articles of impeachment bill that he first brought last summer, on the stupendously specious grounds that President Trump committed “obstruction of justice” by exercising his clear constitutional authority to fire Teenage Drama Queen James Comey.
“I think I skipped a couple of pages. I’m not sure.” – those are the exact words your new Speaker of the House, San Fran Nan, muttered into a live mike as she doddered away from the podium after her acceptance speech yesterday. Say what you want about how worthless and ineffective Paul Ryan was – and he undoubtedly was both – he at least had the presence of mind to know what page of the speech he was on. Most of the time.
But look, Nan is just one of the residents in the nursing home crew we refer to as the Democrat House Leadership. Respectively, Pelosi, Majority Leader Stenny Hoyer and Whip James Clyburn are 79, 78, and 79 years of age. They have all spent several decades knocking down the modest congressional salaries, and have all somehow managed to accumulate fabulous wealth during that time. Funny how that works.
They are the doddering, muttering poster children for term limits. Below are some shots of Pelosi in action outside the White House on Wednesday. I can’t tell if she’s having problems with a bridge or if she keeps a pet gerbil in her mouth. You decide.
Yeah, that’s not gonna work. – As if to demonstrate exactly how un-serious she and her party’s House majority truly are, Pelosi led a party line vote on two separate spending bills designed to “re-open” the currently un-funded departments of the federal government. Neither bill contained a dime for border security. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell immediately announced he would not waste the Senate’s time bringing either bill to the floor for a vote.
Meanwhile, President Trump responded to Pelosi by making the following post on his Instagram page:
It’s on like Donkey Kong.
Your Homeland Security Department in Action! – Hey, remember when TSA Pre-check first came out and you applied for it and waited 6 weeks for the results, and then you got a letter in the mail saying you had qualified for it, but then, just a few months later the TSA made it all random so sometimes you got Pre-Check and most of the time you didn’t, and now they’ve taken it away completely and want you to pay $85 for qualifying for it again? Yeah, this is truly disgraceful. A pox on all their houses.
Brit Hume tweets out Today’s Required Reading:
On-the-record denials this sweeping and emphatic apparently caused some journalists not to write this story. The McClatchy guys went with it anyway, despite their sources’ refusal to be specific about what, exactly, was being investigated. https://t.co/OEtM198gAO

Seriously, give it a read and learn what an utter disgrace to the journalistic “profession” – such as it exists these days – the McClatchy News Service has become. Warning: You’ll need some Zantac handy for when you’re done.
They keep using that word. I don’t think they know what it means.:
Democrats on Thursday: Trump is attacking our nation’s institutions!!!!!!!!
Also Democrats on Thursday: Here’s a bill that would eliminate that Electoral College thing!!!!!!
That is all.
