Media/Democrat non-Crisis Crisis of the Day: Israel Bans Omar and Tlaib

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

The Democrats and their toadies in the mainstream news media are going berserk again today. – No, that’s not the news here; after all, that just happens pretty much every day. The media, after all, must have some non-crisis crisis to obsess over in order to avoid reporting any of the myriad real news that reflects badly on the Democrats.

The non-crisis crisis for today is that Israel, let by its Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, today barred raging anti-Semitic congresswomen Ilhan Omar of Minnesota and Rashida Tlaib of Michigan from traveling to their country. Since pretty much no media outlet will reproduce Netanyahu’s statement and reasoning in full, I’ll start by doing it here:

No country in the world respects America and the American Congress more than the State of Israel. As a free and vibrant democracy, Israel is open to critics and criticism with one exception: Israeli law prohibits the entry into Israel of those who call for and work to impose boycotts on Israel, as do other democracies that prohibit the entry of people who seek to harm the country.

In fact, in the past the US did this to an Israeli member of Knesset, as well as to other public figures from around the world. Congresswomen Tlaib and Omar are leading activists in promoting the legislation of boycotts against Israel in the American Congress. Only a few days ago, we received their itinerary for their visit in Israel, which revealed that they planned a visit whose sole objective is to strengthen the boycott against us and deny Israel’s legitimacy.

For instance: they listed the destination of their trip as Palestine and not Israel, and unlike all Democratic and Republican members of Congress who have visited Israel, they did not request to meet any Israeli officials, either from the government or the opposition.

A week ago, Israel warmly welcomed some 70 Democratic and Republican members of Congress, who expressed broad bipartisan support for Israel, which was also demonstrated a month ago in a resounding bipartisan vote against BDS in Congress. However, the itinerary of the two Congresswomen reveals that the sole purpose of their visit is to harm Israel and increase incitement against it.

In addition, the organization that is funding their trip is Miftah, which is an avid supporter of BDS, and among whose members are those who have expressed support for terrorism against Israel.

Therefore, the minister of interior has decided not to allow their visit, and I, as prime minister, support his decision. Nonetheless, if Congresswoman Tlaib submits a humanitarian request to visit her relatives, the minister of interior has announced that he will consider her request on the condition that she pledges not to act to promote boycotts against Israel during her visit.

All emphasis added is mine.

Now, there is absolutely nothing untrue or unreasonable in that statement. Not one sentence. These two members of congress long ago revealed themselves to be raging anti-Semites, and have avidly and vocally supported various terrorist-supporting groups here in the U.S., as well as the BDS movement.

But the Democrat Party and its media toadies, who always circle the wagons around any Democrat who ever receives any kind of public criticism, have predictably circled the wagons around these two and done everything they can to normalize their anti-Semitic behavior in the public’s consciousness. As a result of that focused normalization effort, they have no choice today but to go berserk and attack Netanyahu, Israel and President Trump, who voiced his approval of Netanyahu’s move on Twitter:

The marvel in all of this is that, despite the blatant and growing anti-Semitism in the Democrat Party, a large portion of the American Jewish population will continue to vote Democrat in the upcoming 2020 elections. One of the most inexplicable ongoing political dynamics in U.S. society, kind of like the down-trodden citizens of Baltimore continuing to re-elect Elijah Cummings every two years.

Anyway, Israel standing up for itself in the face of two rank anti-Semites is today’s non-crisis crisis. Can’t wait to see what the media comes up with for tomorrow.

That is all.

With Just Two Tweets, Trump Puts The Squad in Full Control of the Democrat Party

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

Man, you go on vacation and all hell breaks loose. – Seriously, it happens every time. Of course, we are in the age of President Donald Trump, so all hell breaks loose pretty much every day. But most of the time, there is a method to the President’s madness, and this time is no exception. It’s important that we all understand it.

Basically, as of Tuesday, President Trump put The Squad in full and complete control of the Democrat Party. The Squad is pictured here:

These four vicious, racist, anti-Semitic, anti-American scumbags now control the U.S. House of Representatives. They are now fully identified in the public’s mind as the face of the national Democrat Party. When they go to the polls next year, American voters will have images of these four sneering anti-American bigots at the front of their minds as what and who they will be voting for if they vote for Democrat candidates.

Yeah, the Democrat ticket will have someone like Kamala Harris or Fauxcahontas or someone not yet in the race at the top, but a vote for any Democrat for any office just became a vote for the policy choices and political thuggery represented by the four brutish women pictured above.

Trump’s Sunday morning tweets were no accident, and they did this.  Coming just at a time in which many Democrat office-holders were waking up to the threat The Squad represents to their Party and were beginning to condemn the four thugs, those tweets created the single greatest virtue-signaling frenzy in American history. As literally every left-leaning white male and female in the nation rushed to get onto Twitter and Facebook and improperly label the tweets as “racist” (they aren’t), all of those almost-woke Democrat officeholders now had no alternative but to line up, log-in and signal some damn virtue of their own.

As a result, the Democrat Party is now unalterably entangled with the jack-booted, bigoted, Pol Pot-like policies being pursued by The squad. The 2020 elections will now be a referendum on those policies, and they will not go well for the Democrats or their new leaders.

This new ad from the RNC gives you a preview of how it’s all going to play out:

 

Genius.  Now, back to my vacation.

Democrat Depravity is a True Mental Illness

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

The depravity of the Democrats has now reached serious mental illness levels. – It is no longer enough for Democrat politicians to express their disdain for American values, no longer enough for them to propose programs or make outrageous accusations designed specifically to divide and Balkanize our nation along racial, sexual, religious and gender lines. The competition for that space has become so feverish that they now feel compelled to ramp things up to another level in order to attract attention onto themselves from an equally-despicable media establishment.

Thus, we see things like yesterday’s desperate effort by Irish Bob O’Rourke to reinvigorate his failed presidential campaign by proposing a “war tax” that would literally pit family against family in our tax system. And we see Lieawatha out on the hustings doing her best Oprah imitation, screaming “you get reparations! And you get reparations! And you get reparations!” to the point where you can no longer even add up the trillions of dollars we do not have that she is proposing to give away.

For The Commie, it’s not enough to just hold a presser at which he proposes to destroy the U.S. banking system by “forgiving” trillions in outstanding student loans, he must do so while standing next to The Enemy Within, Ilhan Omar, the Poster Child for Antisemitism in America who stands newly accused by the Minneapolis Star Tribune of having married her brother in order to defraud the U.S. immigration system. The Star Tribune is the same newspaper that refused to report on that matter until she had been safely elected to congress, of course.

Image result for bernie sanders with ilhan omar

If you’re Alexandria Ocasio Cortez, criticizing the current administration’s detention centers along the southern border is not enough – you must seek media attention by comparing them to the Nazi “concentration camps” in which 6 millions Jews were murdered prior to and during World War II. And when you comments are called out by various Jewish organizations, including the American Holocaust Museum, you can’t simply apologize for having resorted to outrageous hyperbole; instead, you say you weren’t talking about Nazi concentration camps, you were talking about those other concentration camps run by …um, well…er, you know, like, those other countries or something. Like, you know?

If you’re Nervous Nancy Pelosi, simply objecting to President Trump’s plan to ramp up deportations of those who have broken U.S. immigration laws isn’t enough. No, no, you must allege that, by proposing to increase deportation efforts to, oh, say, Obama-era levels, the Evil Orange Man is scaring children. And not just children of immigrants, oh, no, because limiting it to them is probably accurate and thus not outrageous enough to attract air time from Chris Cuomo. No, the Evil Orange Man is scaring ALL children everywhere, because that’s just how powerful he has become.

Image result for nancy pelosi trump is scaring children

Then there’s Mad Maxine Waters, the worst person in America, having recently seized that crown back from Adam Pencil Neck Schiff. For the despicable dimwit from California, it isn’t enough to question the effectiveness of the Evil Orange Man’s response to Iran’s downing of an unmanned drone that was flying in international air space, oh, no. If you’re Mad Maxine looking to get your heinously ugly mug on television for a few seconds, you just grab the latest talking points of the Iranian Mullahs and parrot them for the cameras. That’ll damn sure get you on the CBS Evening News and probably on Rachel Maddow, too.

This is the ugly face of the Democrat Party today. It is demented, it is depraved and it is utterly despicable. These are sick, sick people who are destroying our society, bit by bit. They must be stopped.

Lunatic Freshmen Women are Killing the Democrat Party

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

Everyone is talking about lunatic congressional freshmen women today, and none of it is good. That’s really nothing all that new, but when Democrats have reached the point where their members of congress are even being slammed on CNN of all places, you know they have a problem. Watch this clip:

In addition to their exploding antisemitism problem personified by Tlaib and Ilhan Omar of Minnesota, the Democrats have obviously gotten some very bad polling data about their religion of Climate Change, and the insane “Green New Deal” being pushed by New York congressnitwit Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.

That’s the only reasonable conclusion to reach when you see AOC issuing this tweet over the weekend:

But there is no doubt at all that the former Bronx bartender was dead serious when she issued this tweet in April:

I’m sooooo serious, y’all!  OMG!

So, what has changed in the four weeks since that tweet was sent? Well, we know that every decision Democrats make is based on focus groups and polling data, so the obvious answer is that the “Green New Deal” and its 12-year “deadline” (her word, not anyone else’s) is being panned by the voters. When the polling goes south on any issue being pushed by the Democrats, the talking points must change. Thus, what was a hard “deadline” on April 17 becomes “O.M.G., y’all!  I was like totes kidding and stuff about that whole 12-year thing, or something!”

Let’s be painfully honest here: AOC has no clue what the word ‘sarcasm’ even means, would not know ‘dry humor’ if it snuck up and bit her on the, ummmm, ankle. Or something.

As for Tlaib and her latest despicably antisemitic remarks over the weekend, well, here they are in case you missed them:

“There’s always kind of a calming feeling I tell folks when I think of the Holocaust, and the tragedy of the Holocaust, and the fact that it was my ancestors — Palestinians — who lost their land and some lost their lives, their livelihood, their human dignity, their existence in many ways, have been wiped out, and some people’s passports. And just all of it was in the name of trying to create a safe haven for Jews, post-the Holocaust, post-the tragedy and the horrific persecution of Jews across the world at that time. And I love the fact that it was my ancestors that provided that, right, in many ways. But they did it in a way that took their human dignity away and it was forced on them.”

So, here’s a woman who gets a “calming feeling” when she thinks about an event in history in which more than 6 million Jews were exterminated by the Nazis and their collaborators. Oh, and their collaborators included the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem, Muhammad Amin al-Husayni, who happened to be the leader of the loosely-allied Arabs in the Middle East who called themselves “Palestinians.”

There was no effort on the part of Tlaib’s “ancestors” to “create a safe haven for Jews” during this period of time. In fact, Jewish people had begun migrating back into the region in the early 1880s, and of course have a long history in that part of world dating back thousands of years.

In fact, the Arab world – including the “Palestinians” in the region – rabidly opposed the creation of a Jewish state after World War II had ended, and refused to cooperate with it in any way. In 1964, these “Palestinians” – created the Palestinian Liberation Army and began conducting terror attacks on Jewish citizens in Israel.

The first leader of the PLO was a Lebanese national named Ahmad Shukeiri. In 1969, the PLO chose as its leader an Egyptian national, Yassir Arafat, not for his peaceful intentions but for his skills in conducting terrorist warfare. In 2006, Palestinians elected to be ruled by the terrorist organization known as Hamas, which still rules them today.

These are not “peaceful” people who voluntarily gave up land or anything else to “help” post-war Jews. That “calming feeling” Tlaib experiences when contemplating the barbaric deaths of 6 million Jews is based on a politically-motivated myth.

But Tlaib, along with AOC and fellow raging anti-Semite Ilhan Omar, are the new, ugly faces of today’s Democrat Party. And it seems that no matter what they say, no matter how repugnant their public declarations become, Nancy Pelosi will do nothing to discipline them.

Why? Simple: The repugnant, ugly, fantasy-based views they express are in fact mainstream thought in today’s Democrat Party. The reality is that these freshmen women are killing the Democrat Party not because of the insane things they believe, but because they so bluntly and frequently express them in public.

If you are Jewish and you vote for these people, you do so at your own peril. Then again, that holds true for all of us, and has for a long time now.

That is all.

San Fran Nan Cracks Down on her Rambunctious Radicals

The Afternoon Campaign Update
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Just like that, the San Fran Nan crackdown on AOC and her radical cohorts begins. – The first thing you need to know about Democrat politicians is that they’re all just reciting from scripts written for them by other people. They all put their own little trademark spins on things – Irish Bob O’Rourke and Bernie Sanders also add in their trademark hand-and-arm-gesticulations – but in effect, they’re all nothing but a bunch of talking points parrots at the end of the day.

The second thing you need to understand is that everything contained in their scripts is based on polling and focus group data. Nothing is spontaneous, nothing is extemporaneous, nothing is meant to communicate what they really believe. Hell, it’s just the opposite, really: Pretty much everything in the scripts is designed to obfuscate what they really believe and want to do to you if elected.

Only when you understand the above can you really digest and understand what has taken place over the last couple of days.

Nancy Pelosi and her fellow leaders in the congressional Democrat caucus must have gotten some very bad polling data on the antics of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ilhan Omar and their fellow radicals in the House. That’s the only way to explain the following all taking place so close together:

  • Pelosi’s puff piece interview with Leslie Stahl on “60 Minutes”, in which she was entirely dismissive of AOC and her fellow radicals, saying they amount to “about 5 members,” and going onto say that “a glass of water with a D next to it” would easily win Ocasio-Cortez’s Bronx district.
  • The announcement by AOC just before the airing of that Pelosi interview that she would no longer use Facebook and would be cutting back on all social media due to “health” concerns. “I actually think that social media poses a public health risk to everybody,” Ocasio-Cortez said. “There are amplified impacts for young people, particularly children under the age of 3 with screen time,” she said, “But I think it has a lot of effects on older people. I think it has effects on everybody. Increased isolation, depression, anxiety, addiction, escapism.” Yeah, sure, right, uh-huh.
  • The sudden relative silence from the Twitter account and gaping mouth of fellow radical leftist Ilhan Omar, who got into a furious controversy over her latest anti-American remarks that lasted most of last week.

The ongoing radical, anti-American antics by these two and fellow radical leftist freshman congresswoman Rashida Tlaib has no doubt led to some highly-negative polling data now flowing into the office of the Speaker of the House, and she ain’t happy about it.

If you really believe AOC’s absurd cover for dramatically scaling back her social media antics, boy do I have some waterfront property out in West Central Texas I’d like to talk to you about. AOC built her entire campaign on social media, and has practically lived on Facebook and Twitter since taking office in January. The same is true of Omar, who has been a near-constant presence on Twitter and in front of the nearest available TV camera since the day she was sworn into office.

San Fran Nan most likely finally had enough of these two primadonnas constantly upsetting her and the Democrat Party’s preferred daily narratives and stealing all the media attention for themselves. So she has obviously ordered them to rein themselves in for awhile and let the Party’s “grownups” – such as they are – resume control of the messaging.

Too bad – these crazy freshman kids have provided the most entertainment value through the entire political season in the first four months of the year.

Don’t fret, though: There’s no way these attention hogs can contain themselves for long. But for now, anyway, San Fran Nan appears to have exerted some semblance of control.

That is all.

AOC and Her Fellow Radicals Threaten to Burn the Democrat Party to the Ground

The Afternoon Campaign Update
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

As Notre Dame Cathedral burns to the ground, the Democrat Party leadership threatens to join it.  – Nancy Pelosi was featured in a puff piece interview with reliable Democrat activist Leslie Stahl on CBS’ “60 Minutes” fake news program Sunday evening.

At one point, Stahl pointed out the different groups within the House Democratic caucus. “You have these wings — AOC and her group on one side,” Stahl said.

“That’s like five people,” Pelosi smirked.

Stahl responded by correcting the Speaker, saying that the “progressive group is more than five.”

“Well, I’m progressive — I’m a progressive, yeah,” Pelosi responded.

San Fran Nan may be “progressive,” but there are varying degrees of progressivism, and hers pales in comparison to that of our Bronx heroine, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.

As the New York Post points out in the linked article, the House Democrat “Progressive” Caucus is in fact the largest single segment of the Party’s house membership, consisting of 98 members, of whom AOC is among the “most recognizable,” as the Post somewhat hilariously puts it. What an understatement.

Pelosi claims to be in full control of her collection of miscreants, grifters and radical activists, telling Stahl that “By and large, whatever orientation they came to Congress with, they know that we have to hold the center. That we have to … go down the mainstream.” When Stahl asked her if “progressives” like AOC really understand that, Pelosi nervously replied that they do.

Well, you could’ve fooled AOC, Nan. Today, she told the Yahoo! news podcast “Skullduggery” that a Biden nomination “would be going backwards”:

“That does not particularly animate [me] right now,” she said, adding that she has “a lot of issues” with a potential Biden run.

“I can understand why people would be excited by that, this idea that we can go back to the ‘good old days’ with Obama, with Obama’s vice president. There’s an emotional element to that, but I don’t want to go back. I want to go forward.”

Oh. San Fran Nan’s botox is going to explode when she reads that. After all, Creepy Uncle Joe is the Democrat Party’s great doddering hope of appealing to the “mainstream” as Pelosi likes to refer to it, which really means the center/left segment of “independent” voters. As demented as San Fran Nan is, she is still enough in touch with reality to realize that no Democrat nominee can win the presidency without tacking some moderate votes on top of the Party’s hard-left voter base.

But AOC is having none of that. Having no use for Biden and his “mainstream” nonsense, her choice should be obvious to everyone:

“I haven’t endorsed anybody, but I’m very supportive of Bernie,” she told “Skullduggery.” “I also think what Elizabeth Warren has been bringing to the table is … truly remarkable, truly remarkable and transformational.”

So, no more of that fake commie stuff from the Democrat Party for AOC – she wants to got the full commie this time, and what better way to do that than with the old Bolshevik or the fake Indian?

Notre Dame Cathedral burned right down to the ground today because firefighters in Paris have no means of containing a conflagration in a structure like that venerable landmark. It is beginning to look as if the Democrat Party “leadership” is headed for a similar disaster, given that it has no means of containing their growing legion of chaos creators exemplified by AOC and Ilhan Omar.

Couldn’t happen to a nicer bunch of people.

The Week in Review: Spying, Lying and Eunuchs, oh my!

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

[The week just past as chronicled on the @GDBlackmon Twitter feed.]

The week began with the bag of scum named Preet Bharara admitting he actively plotted to reverse the results of the 2016 elections after Donald Trump was elected. Things got much, much better from there.:

See? There really is good news out there if you just look for it…:

I am so surprised to learn that this could happen in our public schools! said no adult who has ever dealt with the public schools in America.:

This about sums it up, all right.:

What if the Commie Mayor of New York City visited Nevada as part of a presidential campaign exploratory effort and nobody noticed?:

The ineffectual Kirstjen Nielsen got canned, and Larry Schweikart summed it up properly.:

Chris Coons demagogued the Neilsen firing, and pissed me off. Can you tell?:

James Woods with some really strong advice.:

One of the best parts of Twitter is reading all the enraged replies to the Babylon Bee by social justice warriors who are too dim to realize it is a parody account. Priceless.:

This was only the most predictable thing in the world.:

I’m not sure whether to laugh, cry, or just recoil in abject horror.:

The video of activist Candace Owens raking House Judiciary Democrats over their racist coals became the most-watched web-based video in C-Span’s history.:

Attorney General William Barr threw the Democrats and their news media co-conspirators into a panicked frenzy this week with his two days of congressional testimony. It was glorious.:

This happened on Wednesday.:

In the midst of it all, the shameless hacks at CNN just kept on doing what they do better than anybody else in the business, faking the news.:

No, times haven’t really changed much at all. All the racists in the un-doctored version of that photo were Democrats, too.:

GOP Texas Cong. Dan Crenshaw told the truth about Ilhan Omar’s despicable comments on 9/11. Democrats can’t handle the truth, so this tweet touched off a firestorm that raged through the rest of the week. *sigh*:

The Houston Chronicle embarrassed itself with this op-ed.:

AG Barr set the world afire once again with his clear-eyed admission that the Obama Administration was “spying” on the Trump Campaign. Democrats once again recoiled in abject horror at the truth finding its way into the public domain, because of course they did.:

CNN responded in very, very, very predictable fashion. The faked the news. *sigh*:

Oh, look. Bill Kristol thinks he still has “Republican friends.” Isn’t that precious?:

The hacks at Politico tried their best to keep up in the fakenews game by faking the news on…wait for it…a presidential visit to Mount Vernon.  I kid you not.:

Why yes, yes they are.:

Nick Searcy perfectly captures the essence of the Eric Swalwell for President campaign.:

I found the perfect screen shot of CNN’s little eunuch.:

Meanwhile, in news no American with a life gives a damn about…:

That’s a rhetorical question, right, Brit Hume?:

Hoping American taxpayers aren’t looking, makers of non-competitive electric vehicles campaigned to actually increase their already-princely taxpayer subsidies. Because of course they did.:

Also, this happened.:

Thursday was turning into a really epic day…:

Really, really epic…:

Some irrational tweets by mindless leftists require a rational answer.:

AOC decided to come to Ilhan Omar’s defense in a stupendously vapid way that only she could possibly achieve. For those unaware, Dan Crenshaw is a Navy Seal who fought for this country against terrorists in the Middle East, lost an eye in a roadside bomb attack, and is the recipient of a Purple Heart.:

The news of the indictment of Obama’s former White House Counsel was given less than a minute’s air time by the three major fake news networks. No surprise there, right?:

The latest media-created Democrat “Rising Star” was turning poor Beto into a has-been.:

By coincidence, my very thoughtful daughter and granddaughter bought me a fabulous new t-shirt. I’m wearing it, right now, in fact.:

Chevron bought out Anadarko in one of the biggest U.S. oil and gas mergers in the 21st century.:

Adam Schiff, whose home state has been using illegal immigrants as political pawns for decades now, tips off the Democrat/media talking points on Trump’s plan to relocate illegals to sanctuary cities. Hilarity ensuses.:

Speaking of our favorite pendejo, here he is, lying about the ongoing border crisis.:

Sure glad to see the Pentagon has its national defense priorities straight. *sigh*:

This bit of fakenews from Politico hasn’t held up well in light of current events.:

It’s the big one, Elizabeth! I’m comin’ to join you!:

We’ll close the week out with this one. If you want to understand the inner workings of the Democrat/media hive mind, it’s a good read. If you’re a Democrat, you should avoid it, since you might learn something.:

Joe Biden Continues the Democrat Obsession With Political Losers

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

The Democrat presidential nomination battle is already a three-ring circus, and the far left elements of the Democrat base are going to make sure it stays that way.

Yesterday, ex-Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper, who is struggling to gain a foothold in the race, found himself in trouble with the social justice warrior crowd when his effort to imply that a woman may well win the nominating contest fell flat with the humorless left.  The first mistake Hickenlooper made was accepting CNN’s invitation to get a little (very little, given CNN’s dwindling audience) free media by doing a televised town hall hosted by leftist activist Dana Bash on Wednesday night. The second mistake he made was to try to inject a little wit into any answer to any question, because he is trying to attract votes from the most witless element of our society.

When Bash asked him the standard question about whether or not he would name a woman as his running mate, Hickenlooper first said “Of course.” Had he just stopped right there and waited for the next question, he’d have been just fine. Unfortunately for Hickenlooper, he felt the need to expand. It all went downhill from there.

“But … I’ll ask you another question,” Hickenlooper said, “How come we’re not asking, more often, the women, ‘Would you be willing to put a man on the ticket?’”

Now, the ex-Governor’s intent there was to imply that, in this nominating race, it is entirely possible that a woman might win the nomination – his answer was a little back-handed jab at Bash for assuming a man is going to come out on top. With Sen. Kamala Harris currently running a strong third in the polls behind two pasty white guys who are older than the dirt Irish Bob O’Rourke eats for breakfast, and the Pantsuit Princess and Michelle Obama still lurking out there in the wings, it is certainly entirely possible the Democrat Party will once again have a female nominee in 2020.

But the leftist outrage mob has no sense of humor or understanding of this thing called “wit”, and is determined to be outraged. That determination meant that Hickenlooper’s remark was intended as a shot against women, not a compliment to them, as the outrage mob went berserk all over CNN, MSNBC and social media all day on Thursday.

The moral of this story? Understand your audience, Governor. Never try to inject wit into an answer when you’re seeking the votes of witless people. Just say “Of course”, accept the inevitable applause, and move on.

Speaking of moving on, the radical nutjobs at Moveon.org this week put out a demand to all of the Democrats running for the presidency to boycott this year’s meeting of the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) as an expression of their support for the wave of rank anti-Semitism that currently infests the American left. To no one’s surprise, at least eight of the candidates, eager to appeal to the growing Ilhan Omar faction of the demented Democrat voter base, have agreed to participate in the boycott.

Those agreeing to Moveon’s demand thus far include Kamala Harris, Irish Bob O’Rourke, The Commie, Fauxcahontas, Kirsten Gillibrand, Julian Castro, Pete Buttigieg, and Jay Inslee. No word yet from Hickenlooper, Biden, Amy Klobuchar, Andrew Yang or Cory Booker, but you can be sure they will all be under intense pressure today to follow their fellow spineless candidates over this anti-Semite cliff.

Then there’s Creepy Uncle Joe. The elderly, pasty-white guy from Delaware is anxious not to become the prime target of the mushrooming “we hate old white guys” faction of the party’s voter base. In the hopes of putting a beard on his blinding old white guy-ness, Biden is now floating a trial balloon in which he would promise to name failed Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams, who happens to be female and black, as his running mate.

So once again, this current Democrat obsession with political looooooooosers raises its curious head.  Nothing against Ms. Abrams, but she lost her race, lost it by more than 50,000 votes in fact, despite obviously benefiting from a pretty robust voter fraud operation and all the free media our fake news media could reasonably provide.

There are literally hundreds of successful, winning minority female politicians out there who Biden could have targeted for this trial balloon. For example, there’s Mad Maxine Waters, who for more than a year in 2017-18 was literally the demented face of the Democrat Party before the party’s leaders convinced her to tone things down. She’s won every election race she’s ever run – why not her?

Then there’s Texas congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee, who must be sitting around grumbling, “why not me?” Say what you will about Cong. Lee – and there are many, many things to be said about her – there is no denying that she has also been extremely successful in getting elected and repeatedly re-elected.

Speaking of winning Democrats who are making a real mark, there’s Cong. Ilhan Omar, who has now become the leading voice of anti-Semitism in America.  Why not her?

Or hey, how about a Hispanic 2018 gubernatorial candidate who actually won her race, like New Mexico’s Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham? Lord knows there are plenty of New Mexico citizens who would love to see her leave to run for Veep so they could get a do-over on that race.

But I digress.  The question here is why so much focus on Ms. Abrams, whose only actual experience in government is as a state representative who made no real mark in that role? Why was she chosen, out of all the possible candidates out there, to deliver the Democrat Party’s response to the State of the Union address? Why is this political loser considered to be such a rising influence within the Party?

Makes no sense to me.  But then, I’m not a Democrat.

Thank God.

A National Reckoning is Coming on Russia Collusion

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

That is all.
