Senator Graham Transitions From RINO to Trumpist on Immigration

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

So, you’re sayin’ there’s still a chance. –  Hearts went to palpitating at fake media outlets all over the Texas news media yesterday when their hero, Irish Bob “Beto” O’Rourke, said he just might be running for president in 2020. At least, that’s the way Irish Bob’s comments are being breathlessly reported on your Texas-based radios and televisions this morning.

Of course, as is so often the case with our fake news media reporting on Irish Bob, the reporting isn’t exactly right. What the eternally cute and fidgety Democrat boy toy actually said was this:

O’Rourke said that he had just returned from a vacation with his family and was enjoying being home in El Paso. “That’s what we’re focused on now,” he said. “Just being together as a family, making sure I deliver everything I can to the people I represent until Jan. 3. Then Amy and I will think about what we can do next to contribute to the best of our ability to this community,” he said.

Then he looked at his wife in the audience. “Amy, how was that?”

In other words, the beloved Beto did not say he might be running, he just didn’t say an outright, unqualified “no” when asked. But that was enough to set our “Dumb and Dumber” fake news media off on another round of Betomania promotion.

Because of course it was.

Oh, and by the way, he’s running. There’s way too much money in it for him to do anything else.

Ocasio Cortez Watch:

Irish Bob’s ideal running mate when 2024 comes around got into a little dust-up on Twitter with Senator Lindsey Graham on Monday.  It went something like this:

Bazinga!

Speaking of Senator Graham… – The Senator from South Carolina has been on a roll lately.  I missed this on Sunday, but he sent out a couple of tweets that afternoon that deserve to be noted, mainly because Graham has in the past – while he was following John McCain around like a little puppy dog – always been a dove on illegal immigration:

Folks, when we have looming armies of illegal immigrants behaving so badly at our Southern border that even Lindsey Graham is ready to just shut it down, what we have is an invasion, plain and simple.

Never forget that that’s what this is: An invasion. Because words are important, and so is recognizing things for what they are.

It is also very important to remember that the people in these “caravans” have no legitimate claim to asylum in the United States. Asylum is meant for those fleeing wars or other violent oppression from the government in their home country. The best fake argument that Democrats and our fake news media can come up with for these folks is that they are “fleeing gang violence,” a term we see and hear repeated ad nauseum in almost every fake news media report on the matter.

Look, people in Chicago have a real problem with gang violence. So do folks in Los Angeles and New Orleans and most other Democrat-run big cities in the United States. No one in the Democrat Party or our fake news media is saying that their constituents in those cities have some sort of unfettered right to form up “caravans” of 5,000 people and storm into Canada.

These people are “fleeing” poverty, nothing else. Most of them freely admit that whenever one of the few moderately-curious “journalists” embeded with them ask why they want to come to America. Some of them are looking for work, others are simply looking to get on America’s public dole, which Democrats have made so easy to abuse.

Even if this bunch had legitimate claims to asylum, they are in that case obligated under international law to seek it in the first foreign country they enter, which would be Mexico. Mexico’s government has generously offered asylum to every one of these people, most of whom flatly turned it down. Real “asylum seekers” don’t get to do that. Fake ones do, apparently.

In situations like this, liberals love to get all teary-eyed and quote the poem on the Statue of Liberty, as if it is some sort of law (it isn’t).  Here is what that poem says:

“Give me your tired, your poor, Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free, The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.”

Here is what that poem does not say:

“Give me an army of thousands of mostly military-aged males, your gangsters yearning to crash through our border checkpoints, The wretched grifters wishing to plant the flag of their home country on our soil and live off the generosity of our taxpayers.”

We are a nation of immigrants, that much of the liberal dogma on this subject is true.  Legal immigration through an orderly process in which our country gets to decide, through its sovereign rights, who does and does not get to enter our shores, is a good and positive thing.

But this – this invasion – is not a good thing at all. Thank goodness we have a President who sees the situation for what it is, and deals with it properly despite all the false hysteria emanating from the other side.

That is all.
Postscript: I meant to include this terrific tweet from Buck Sexton in the original piece, but forgot.  So, a little late, here it is:

Perfect.

That is really all.

The Week in Revew: Democrats/Media Shift Focus Away From Robert Mueller

The Campaign Update Week in Review

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

This was the week that the media/Democrat narrative mysteriously shifted away from Robert Mueller. After a couple of weeks of renewed, post-election focus on Mueller and his fake “investigation”, the media/Democrat axis of propaganda suddenly shifted to climate change, and then back to the border issue, and the 5,000-plus “migrants” from Central America overwhelming the infrastructure and public patience in Tijuana, Mexico.

This is very odd, since the Climate Scam is where the American Left always goes whenever it has run out of anything else to say. “Climate Change” is always their issue of last resort because of its nature as an ever-evolving set of theories that conveniently allow the scammer to blame literally anything that happens in our daily lives on “Climate Change”.

All those people fighting over cheap TVs at your local Wal-Mart on Black Friday? Climate Change. Riots happening in Paris, France? That’s not caused by tax protesters, it’s caused by Climate Change. Record, bitter cold across the midwest and northeast? Climate Change – never been cold up there before. Your car wouldn’t start yesterday morning? Climate Change. Brian Stelter’s disappearing hairline? Climate Change.

It’s all Climate Change all the time, and that’s why the Axis of Propaganda invariably ends up focusing on it for at least one week every year because all of their other fake narratives have come up a crapper.  Thus, this week, a week when it became increasingly obvious that Robert Mueller has a huge bag of nothing where President Trump is concerned and is continuing to systematically wrap up his 19-month witch hunt, the media and their Democrat masters fell back on their old, reliable fright tactic.

The fake news media has also been forced to report on migrant invasion happening at our Southern border after a couple of weeks of attempting to ignore a story that is hugely damaging to Democrat interests. With even the media now admitting that more than 75% of these giant “caravans” consist of military-aged males, many of whom are known violent gang members, and with President Donald Trump tweeting and talking about it each and every day, the post-election effort to simply ignore it became impossible to maintain.

There are reports this morning that several hundred of the migrant army in Tijuana will attempt to storm the border crossing there later today, so CNN will gladly report on that, hoping to get films of violence that are that fake news network’s stock in trade. Of course, CNN will only air any such video if it can spin the shots negatively against U.S. Border Patrol and military personnel who will be there to turn back the invasion.

Which is what this is.  An invasion.

Let’s go to the rest of this Week in Review:

  • It was the week that all the focus on Climate Change and the migrant invasion took preening CNN peacock Jim Acosta right out of the news cycle, and that was a glorious result. America needs more of this.
  • It was the week that Oklahoma beat West Virginia by a score of 59-56 in a college football game in which neither team’s defense apparently ever took the field of play.
  • It was the week that yet another Obama-appointed federal judge ruled that President Trump, as opposed to all other presidents in U.S. history, lacks the authority clearly given to him in the text of the U.S. Constitution.
  • It was the week that the Chief Justice of the U.S. Supreme Court, the man who twisted himself into legalistic knots in order to impose Obamacare on our populace, lied to the American public by claiming there is no difference between an “Obama judge” and the judges appointed by other presidents.  Shame, Justice Roberts, shame on you.
  • It was the week when the White House Correspondents Association ended the tradition of having a bad comedian speak at its annual Dinner, giving yet another win to Donald J. Trump.
  • It was the week that our fake news media invested tons of its air and print time once again trying to convince the American people to care about the killing of a radical Islamist blogger who used to go to dinner parties hosted by editors at the Washington Post. The effort failed. Again.
  • It was the week that President Trump correctly chose to refuse to destroy our country’s key strategic relationship with Saudi Arabia over the killing of a radical Islamist blogger who the Saudi government considered to be an enemy of the state.
  • It was the week that Broward County’s Supervisor of Elections, Brenda Snipes, having tried and failed to steal the state’s senate election for Democrat Bill Nelson and the governor’s election for Democrat Andrew Gillum, tendered her resignation in disgrace. Now, if there is still any justice left in Florida, she will be prosecuted.
  • It was the week that Democrats expressed their outrage at all the subsidies and tax breaks given by the states of New York and Virginia to secure the new Amazon regional headquarters sites, while in their next breath confirming their support for subsidies and tax breaks for solar and wind power and billionaire Elon Musk.  *sigh*
  • It was the week that British Prime Minister Theresa May took her “Brexit” deal to European Union headquarters, a deal that will essentially keep Britain under the EU’s despotic thumb. To no one’s surprise, the EU approved. Sellout is Theresa May’s middle name.
  • It was the week that French Prime Minister Emmanuel Macron, barely a week removed from denouncing Donald Trump and populism at a summit conference in Paris, saw riots break out on the streets of Paris and his personal approval rating fall to below 20%.
  • Meanwhile, in America, it was the week that President Trump saw his approval rating in the daily Rasmussen survey tick up to 51% and stay there.

There’s a message in there somewhere – wonder if the Boy Prince of Paris can see it through all the smoke rising along the Champs Elysee’?

That is all.

The Week in Review: No Good Deed By Donald Trump Goes Unpunished

The Campaign Update Week in Review

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

President Donald Trump was in both Montana and Florida for rallies on Saturday.  Think about that for a minute:  He’s based in Washington, D.C.  He gets up in the morning, gets his daily security briefing, then hops on Marine One – after chatting with the hostile fake news media for a little bit – which takes him to Joint Base Andrews.

There, he boards Air Force One for the 5-hour flight out to Belgrade, Montana.  He spends an hour speaking to an audience of thousands of Montanans – with thousands more watching on large video screens outside the venue – then he hops back on Air Force One for the 2,000 mile, 5-hour flight down to Pensacola, Florida.

There, he again spends an hour speaking to thousands of Floridians, with a huge crowd of thousands more gathered outside, and then hops back on Air Force One for the 1-hour flight to his resort at Mar-a-Lago.  Presumably, he got some sleep there.

This is a 72 year-old man.  By the way, this is a 72 year-old man who works for free.  He donates his presidential salary every quarter to a different worthy cause, an act of generosity that goes unreported by our fake news media.

While Democrats, their agents in the fake news media and even many of his Republican colleagues bitch and moan about him spending too much time at Mar-a-Lago and the other properties he owns on weekends, the fact of the matter is that most normal men his age and wealth status would be spending all of their time playing golf while the kids take over the family business.  Instead, Donald Trump is spending his time presiding over a nation experiencing a booming economy and relative peace and stability in the world.

For delivering all of that, he has been rewarded with 92% negative fake media coverage, hostile and violent rhetoric coming from all corners of pop culture and the education establishment, unending assassination threats from entertainers and social media, and a special counsel investigation that has now lingered on for 17 months.

Our nation has an odd way of rewarding all this WINNING.

Trump in Montana:  Purple mountains majesties above the fruited plain!

 

 

Let’s go to the Week in Review:

  • It was the week that one of Brett Kavanaugh’s Democrat-recruited accusers admitted not only that she lied to the Senate Judiciary Committee, but that she has in fact never even met Justice Kavanaugh.  If you’re surprised by this, you haven’t been paying attention.
  • It was the week that leftist lawyers for a dozen “migrants” who have never set foot in the United States of America were allowed to file a lawsuit in federal court against a sitting President.  Because, rights, or something.
  • It was the week that a campaign staffer for Democrat Andrew Gillum was arrested for throwing her milk at a group of college Republicans.  Because, hey, this is what the media has empowered her to do.
  • It was the week that multiple staffers for Irish Bob O’Rourke were caught on video illegally using campaign funds to send money to the “migrant caravan” in Mexico, and the Texas news media shamed itself by parrotting the O’Rourke campaign’s talking points and ignoring the video evidence.  Again, if this surprises you, you haven’t been paying attention.
  • It was the week the fake news media completely forgot about that Khashoggi guy, and so did every other American.
  • It was the week that the Democrats and their media agents mounted a coordinated effort to define any effort to criticize the despicable, anti-American, anti-Israel George Soros as “anti-Semitic” hate speech.  Holy crap.
  • It was the week that Democrat Supreme Court Justice Sonya Sotomayor said in one breath that she often would have used a baseball bat on the late Antonin Scalia if she had had one handy, but in the next breath said that “differences don’t stand, necessarily, on ill will.”  I swear I don’t make this stuff up.
  • It was the week this happened:

*sigh*

  • It was the week a former high-profile campaign worker for Barack Hussein Obama was arrested for spraying anti-Semitic graffiti and attempting to burn down a Jewish Synagogue, and the fake news media studiously ignored his connection to the former President:

  • It was the week garbage human being Alec Baldwin got arrested, yet again:

  • It was the week President Trump re-instituted all previous sanctions on Iran and added a few more.  This came after two days of fake media reports that his Administration was backing off of most of them.  Fake news, defined.
  • It was the week that Morning Joe guest pinhead Donny Deutsch actually said that Donald Trump was elected to the presidency because “I don’t think we were ready for a black president.” Quick:  Someone tell Donny that we actually elected a black president, TWICE.  My goodness.
  • It was the week that this happened:

Are there really real, actual Texans who care what John Brennan thinks about our senate race?  Really???
  • It was the week that CNN fake host Don Lemon told America – or, well, the tiny little sliver of leftist America that still watches CNN – that our biggest terror threat is “white men,” and CNN’s management endorsed his statement.  Again, if this surprised you, you need to pay closer attention.
  • It was the week we discovered that MSNBC’s Katy Tur is, um, geographically-challenged:

  • It was the week that CNN morning host Alyisin Camerota’s tiny little brain exploded when a guest didn’t follow the narrative:

  • It was the week that fake pollsters, on the same day in Arizona, gave us results that said Democrat Kyrsten Sinema was leading by 4 points and Republican Martha McSally was leading by 7.  And some of you wonder why I have a negative view of our nation’s polling industry.
  • It was the week that the editorial board at the Houston Chronicle beclowned itself by endorsing Irish Bob O’Rourke in his race against Ted Cruz because O’Rourke plays well with others.  *sigh*
  • It was the week that this happened:

There was so much more, but I’m running out of energy here.  After all, I’m not a 72 year-old guy who works for free.
That is all.

The Media Beclowns Itself on the Anchor Babies Issue. What Else is New?

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Well, now we know why he was transferred. –  Infamous Boston Gangster Whitey Bulger was transferred to a new, maximum security prison in Virginia on Tuesday.  There, he was beaten to death by several mob-connected inmates before 9:00 a.m. That’s some security right there.

Another media narrative epic fail. – Despite the best efforts of our fake news media to lay the blame for the fake pipe bomber solely at President Donald Trump’s feet over the last week, a new poll taken by the ultra-leftwing Huffington Post shows that only 24% of Americans believe he bears much of the blame for the incident, whatever it really turns out to have been.  On the other hand, 50% of Americans believe he bears “no blame at all” for the actions of a steroids-addled nutjob.

Which only proves that at least half of Americans still have their wits about them.

What, you thought Hollywood would actually reform itself? – Here’s how you can tell the whole #MeToo movement has had no impact whatsoever on the depraved Hollywood culture:  Currently in the works are both a major Showtime mini-series and a feature film starring Charlize Theron about the Roger Ailes scandal at Fox News, but there are zero projects in the works starring nobody about piggish big Hollywood muckety-muck Harvey Weinstein.

What does this tell us? It tells us that despite his current situation, Weinstein retains major influence in Tinseltown, and people there are still afraid to cross him. One gets the feeling that if a movie is ever made about Weinstein and his escapades, it will be cast as a light-hearted comedy starring Kevin Spacey and Meryl Streep, and produced by…wait for it…Harvey Weinstein.

And now a word from the @GDBlackmon Twitter feed:

Sometimes it really is difficult to think of China as a “civilized” society.

On this whole “birthright citizenship” thing… – Never in the history of the fake media beclowning itself have so many inhabitants of our fake media beclowned themselves as they did on Twitter yesterday over this “birthright citizenship” deal. It seemed as if every fake journalist in America felt the burning need to get on Twitter and sternly and sagely announce that President Trump’s planned executive order would never work because, and I quote, “birthright citizenship is enshrined in the Constitution!” Why, it’s almost as if they had all gotten a talking points memo from the Democrat Party or something.  Go figure.

The only problem with their joint talking point on the issue is, it isn’t true. Again, go figure.

Look, the 14th Amendment was ratified in 1868 to protect the rights of freed slaves (about 99% of whose previous “owners” happened to be Democrats, but I digress) and their progeny.  Not only did the 14th Amendment have literally nothing to do with the children of illegal immigrants, the congressional record makes it crystal clear that it was specifically intended to exclude them:

“This will not, of course, include persons born in the United States who are foreigners, aliens, who belong to persons who are ambassadors or foreign ministers accredited to the government of the United States, but will include every other class of persons.”

As I replied to one semi-conservative Texas-based journalist who had displayed rank ignorance on the subject, “There is far more involved here than the 14th Amendment. There is 150 years of case law, 150 years of congressional action, and 150 years of administrative interpretations at play as well. If you’d stop your virtue-signaling for a few minutes, you might figure that out.”

But hey, virtue-signaling to liberals is the favorite passtime of semi-conservative journalists on Twitter, so naturally that particular journalist was unable to stop.

The reality of the current government policy regarding birthright citizenship for anchor babies of illegal immigrants is that it is exactly that:  An administrative policy. It is an interpretation by past presidential administrations that has never been tested in the federal courts.

President Trump, for better or worse, apparently intends to test it, and with the new, presumably-conservative majority on the Supreme Court, he might win.  But more to the point, even an immigration dove like Sen. Lindsey Graham believes the current policy is wrong, and he announced yesterday that he plans to introduce a bill that would correct it.  “Finally, a president willing to take on this absurd policy of birthright citizenship,” Graham said in a statement. “I’ve always supported comprehensive immigration reform – and at the same time – the elimination of birthright citizenship.”

“The United States is one of two developed countries in the world who grant citizenship based on location of birth,” Graham continues, “This policy is a magnet for illegal immigration, out of the mainstream of the developed world, and needs to come to an end.”

It is a bad policy that offers perverse incentives that encourage illegal immigration. It is a policy with no true firm basis in the law, zero actual basis in our constitution, and it needs to end if we are to ever restore some semblance of order to our system of legal immigration.

Given all of that, you can expect to see journalists in Texas and nationally to continue making fools of themselves over the issue on Twitter.  They obviously can’t help themselves, and truly enjoy doing it.

It’s a clown show out there. Be careful, and vote Republican.

That is all.

Our Southern Border is Being Invaded

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Warning to all my Houston friends – downtown’s going to be a mess today. – With more than 100,000 ticket requests having now come in for spots in the 19,000-seat Toyota Center, supporters of President Donald Trump and Texas Senator Ted Cruz began lining up for admission at 8:00 Sunday morning for tonight’s rally.  City officials announced Sunday night that portions of six different downtown streets will be blocked off all day today as part of the Secret Service’s security operation for the event.

Downtown Houston’s traffic scene is a mess on any weekday.  Today, it’s going to be a nightmare.  If your employer lets you work from home, today would be a great day to take advantage of that benefit.

By the way, your fake news media wants you to believe that most of these people lining up to wait more than 24 hours to get into that arena to attend a political rally aren’t going to take the hour or so necessary to actually cast votes in this election.  Your fake news media is in for a very rude awakening over the next couple of weeks.

Um…Jim…we’re “skeptics” because the leftwing bias shows in the media’s reporting, not its social media snark. – Jim VandeHei, the CEO and co-Founder of Axios, has a little piece this morning in which he gives his fellow fakenewsers this advice:

News organizations should ban their reporters from doing anything on social media — especially Twitter — beyond sharing stories. Snark, jokes and blatant opinion are showing your hand, and it always seems to be the left one. This makes it impossible to win back the skeptics.”

As is typical of these fake news media moguls, this completely misses the point.  People are “skeptics” because of all of the news faking that goes on in the media’s reporting, not in its social media snarking.  All the social media activity does is demonstrate clearly what we already know, which is that 98% of our national news media has a strong leftwing, anti-Trump bias, and that bias shows up every day in its fake reporting.  Mr. VandeHei’s advice here is not to do something to get that bias out of the reporting, but to make the confirmation of it stop showing up in social media.

In other words, as has become sadly typical of fake news media executives, his goal is to eliminate transparency in the media.  And these people wonder why tens of millions of ordinary Americans consider them to be an enemy.

This isn’t a “caravan of migrants”, it’s an invasion. – After being briefly halted at the border between Mexico and Guatemala, the invading force of overwhelmingly-military-aged males from Central America was allowed to restart its progress northwards by Mexican officials on Sunday.

The force of supposed “asylum seekers” mainly from Honduras began the day 2,000 strong, but somehow had ballooned to more than 7,000 by nightfall.  So obviously, this is now a caravan made up mainly of Mexican citizens, yet our fake news media continues to characterize it as a bunch of Honduran asylum-seekers.

Let’s be honest about what this really is:  This is not a “caravan of asylum-seekers,” it is an invasion.  Virtually all of the people interviewed by the fake U.S. media openly state they are coming to America for work, not out of any fear or mistreatment in their home country.  Wanting a better job is not a valid reason to seek asylum in the U.S. or pretty much any other country on earth, yet our fake news media continues to misinform the public.

This is an invasion, and the truth is that neither the Democrats nor establishment, Chamber of Commerce Republicans care to do anything about it.  The Republicans want the cheap labor, the Democrats want what they view as future voters, and they’re all just fine with having the public schools in border states overwhelmed with non-English-speaking children and our housing and social services overwhelmed by people who lack the skills to fend for themselves.

Mexican officials have obviously lied to President Trump about their ability – or, more likely, willingness – to prevent the invading force from transiting the length of their country to the U.S./Mexico border, so it appears likely that a force far larger than its current 7,000 will arrive at the border sometime around Election Day.  Which, of course, has been the plan all along by those who have organized and funded the invasion.

President Trump has few real options on how to deal with the problem.  He could honestly declare a state of emergency given that this truly is an invasion of our Southern border, and bring in U.S. military forces to actually shut the border down.  But would shut down not just illegal immigration, but also the massive amounts of trade that takes place across that border every day, exacting a major economic cost.  It’s a real conundrum, but U.S. immigration law leaves the President with few other choices.

Make no mistake about it:  This is what the whole media/Democrat-generated hysteria over “we can’t separate the families!” was all about earlier this year.  They wanted to force the re-implementation of the Bush/Obama-era “catch and release” program in which illegal immigrants are processed, held briefly at the border, and then simply released into the general population, never to be seen again.  And they succeeded in forcing that policy back into place.

Thus, when this invading force – which could grow immensely larger than its current size as it transits Mexico – arrives at the border in early November, this is what the law will require the Trump Administration to do absent shutting down the border.

And remember:  On December 1, a new President, Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador (AMLO), will take office in Mexico.  Mr. Obrador has long advocated not just that Mexican citizens should be allowed into the United States, but that they have an absolute “human right” to do so at their own volition.  Here is what AMLO had to say about this matter in June:

“Soon, very soon, after the victory of our movement, we will defend migrants all over the American continent and the migrants of the world who, by necessity, must abandon their towns to find life in the United States,” Lopez Obrador said during a rally in the Mexican city of Culiacán, eluniversal.com reports.  “It’s a human right we will defend,” he added.

It’s an invasion, plain and simple:  Highly-organized, well-funded, and President Trump appears to be the only person in Washington, D.C. interested in doing anything to bring it to a halt.

 

That is all.

The Mueller Investigation is “Seinfeld”: A Popular Show About Nothing

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Coincidence?  Probably not. – ICE agents found, arrested and deported the last known Nazi WWII-era prison guard living in America.  The Democrat Party, its paramilitary arm, Antifa, and it’s propaganda arm in the national fake news media all want to abolish ICE.  Let that sink in.  They also all want to confiscate your guns and abolish the 2nd amendment.  Think about why that is.

The Robert Mueller Special Counsel Juggernaut thus far… – Ok, lessee here.  To this point, here is what Bob Mueller and his gang of Clinton/Obama hacks have produced thus far in their 16 month-long “investigation”, i.e., Witch Hunt:

– Obtained convictions of Paul Manafort for a series of financial crimes committed a decade ago while Manafort was working for Ukrainian clients alongside…wait for it… Tony Podesta, the brother of Hillary Clinton’s campaign chairman, John Podesta;

– Had to farm out the Michael Cohen case to the Southern District of New York due to its irrelevance to anything having to do with the Special Counsel’s charge;

– Has now postponed any sentencing of Gen. Mike Flynn for the FIFTH TIME since Flynn entered his guilty plea for “lying to the FBI,” a plea that has now been conclusively shown to have been given under duress as Mueller and his thugs threatened Flynn’s family;

– Is begging to get 30-90 days in jail for George Papadopoulos, who the fake news media tried for months to portray as the very justification for the FBI’s illegal spying on the Trump Campaign during 2016, but has now been conclusively revealed as little more than a bit player, if a player at all;

– Has indicted about 30 Russian ham sandwiches who will never come to America to stand trial;

– Was forced to desperately postpone the trial against the lone Russian ham sandwich that did show up for trial because he and his thugs were completely unprepared to make a case;

– Has in 16 months brought ZERO charges that in any way relate to allegations of Trump “collusion” with Russia, the ostensible justification for the investigation in the first place;

– Has in 16 months delivered ZERO evidence to support rampant media allegations of obstruction of justice on the part of President Trump.

This is a clown show, folks. Or a better analogy is that it’s like Seinfeld – a show that everyone watches and laughs about and talks about the next morning over the water cooler at work, but which is ultimately about nothing.  A big, ol’ flaming bag of nothing.

The Cohen thing is different in that it is at least about something real, not about a fantasy concocted in concert by the Democrats and the fake news media.  The problem for Trump haters is that it, like the charges against Manafort, is also about ancient history, two alleged affairs private citizen Trump supposedly had with a porn star and a centerfold more than a decade before he ran for office.

Again, the charges to which Cohen pleads are irrelevant to anything related to the Trump campaign or presidency – tax fraud, bank fraud and one charge of a campaign finance violation.  The problem with that last charge is that no money ever passed through any account in any way related to the Trump campaign.  The overly-zealous prosecutors in the case are going to try to claim that the payoffs to the porn star and centerfold were made in an effort to “influence” the 2016 election, and thus amount to a contribution in-kind to the Trump campaign.

Okayyyyyyyyy…do the Democrats and fake news media really want to go there?  Think about the possible implications of this line of reasoning for a moment.  If one accepts this logic, then basically every minute of programming that aired on CNN during 2016 would have to be classified as an illegal in-kind contribution to the Clinton campaign, not to mention 90% of the fake reporting by the rest of the fake news media.  This is billions of dollars worth of outright advocacy designed to – guess what? – influence the 2016 election.

By the same logic, every moment that Jim Acosta and April Ryan and 90% of the White House press corps spend on White House grounds should be accurately classified as opposition research for the Democrat Party and efforts to influence the 2018 mid-term and 2020 presidential elections.  Because if we’re going to be honest about this, that is all they are doing.  They are nothing more than operatives for the Democrat Party.

The other speculation is that the Cohen plea deal gives Democrats a reason to pursue impeachment should they take control of the House in November.  Again, do the Democrats really want to go there?  These are the same Democrats who steadfastly refused to condemn then-President Bill Clinton for having sex with a 22 year-old intern in the Oval Office, and then brutally bullying her to remain silent about it.  Most of them still refuse to condemn Clinton to this day, in fact.

The Democrats in 1998 couldn’t offer up a single vote in favor of impeaching Clinton when he was brought up on proven charges of obstruction of justice, perjury, lying to federal investigators, and abuse of FBI files.  Not one.  Single.  Vote.  But now they’re going to try to impeach a Republican president for the “crime” of entering into a hush money agreement over two alleged affairs from 10-12 years ago?

Without doubt, Trump’s behavior, if true, is wholly immoral and should be condemned on those grounds.  But as has been pointed out many, many times, Americans did not elect Donald Trump on the illusion he was a choir boy.  Besides, the Democrats voluntarily and unanimously surrendered any moral authority in these matters 20 years ago, and there is just no going back from that.

Despite all the media frenzy flying around today, Donald Trump will serve out this term and most likely end up being a highly successful two-term president.

The blood of Mollie Tibbets is on Congress’s hands. – Fake news media outlets all over America feverishly worked to avoid mentioning yesterday’s revelation that University of Iowa Student Mollie Tibbets was murdered by an illegal alien, because of course they did.  Doesn’t fit the narrative, after all.  One MSNBC Democrat spokesperson who nobody’s ever heard of refused to even mention Ms. Tibbets’ name, referring to her only as “some girl in Iowa…who Fox News is talking about.”

Many on the right, meanwhile, rushed in to blame Ms. Tibbets’ killing on the Democrats and their refusal to cooperate in the building of the border wall, but this is overly simplistic.  The truth is that the the current insane construct of our nation’s immigration laws has been a bipartisan enterprise that has been constructed by a series of congresses and presidents of both parties going all the way back to the 1960s.  Who can ever forget, for example, the “Gang of 8” that led the fight for a horrific comprehensive immigration reform bill in 2013?  That despicable exercise, which would have provided overarching amnesty, institutionalized open borders and turned the nation over to the Democrat Party into perpetuity,  included the very worst the U.S. Senate has to offer, including Republicans like Jeff Flake and John McCain, and Democrats like Chuck Schumer and Dick Durbin.

So you can’t just blame the Democrats for this murder and the ongoing crime spree by those living illegally in our country – the GOP establishment wing deserves all sorts of credit for it as well.  This has been a purely bipartisan exercise.

Just another day in Mueller is Seinfeld America.

That is all.

The Democrat Party is Self-Destructing

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

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

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

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

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

You don’t say, my good man.

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

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

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

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

November is going to be a Red Tsunami.

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

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

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

My goodness.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

That is all.

The Democrats’ New Rules Aren’t Really Helping Them

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

It’s all Donald Trump’s fault!  He caused this!  Oh, wait… – When some nut job killed five people working at an Annapolis, MD newspaper on Thursday, many of the fake journalists who infest Twitter immediately knee-jerked to the conclusion that the tragic event was all the fault of President Donald Trump.  Then it turned out that this guy had had a running feud with the paper since 2011.  None of the fake journalists then backed up and blamed Barack Obama.  Go figure.

But wait, these are the rules you asked for, Congresswoman.  What’s the problem? – Mad Maxine Waters told the fake news media yesterday that she’s decided to cancel fundraising events in Alabama and Texas due to “serious” threats she’s received in the mail this week.  The Braying Buffoon is, of course, fresh off of a Saturday event at which she incited violence against members and supporters of the Trump Administration, and then several subsequent appearances at which she refused to pull her remarks back and simply reinforced them.

So, sadly, these are the new rules she’s said she wanted, and now she’s complaining about having to live under them.  Her fellow Democrats would do her a favor by joining with Republicans to force her out of the congress entirely and send her back to California to live in that multi-million dollar mansion she’s somehow been able to afford on a government salary.  That would get her out of the limelight and most likely put an end to any threats.  But doing that would require personal integrity on the part of those Democrats, so we know that’ll never happen.

Speaking of the new rules, more than 600 women staged a sit-in in the Hart Senate Office Building in Washington DC on Thursday in support of the Democrat/Media-fabricated “don’t separate the families!” issue on the border.  The Capitol Police stated that 575 of the women (don’t any of these people have jobs?) were arrested and carted off to local jails, where they will be arraigned and released and probably pay a minor fine.  Because that’s all we do to people who disrupt the nation’s business these days.

This weekend, there are several hundred such protests planned to take place in cities all over the country.  ABC Radio reported this morning that “organizers” expected more than 100,000 people to participate.

Let’s think for a moment about that that word “organizers” that ABC so casually tossed out to its listeners without any effort to identify who they might be.  Who are these “organizers?”  Who do they work for?  Who’s paying them?

ABC and their fellow fake news outlets want us all to just think that these are just a bunch of sweet little ladies and short, skinny guys with mustaches who “organize” such events out of the goodness of their little hearts.  They want you to think that these events are somehow organic, that they just happen due to the pressing demand from people who can’t wait to get out onto the street on hot summer days and carry signs with stupid slogans on them while chanting slogans that are even more stupid.

The truth is that these “organizers” are professional agitators in the same mold as Barack Hussein Obama, who did this stuff for a living before some domestic terrorists and radical preachers decided he should go into politics.  Indeed, the 28 year-old gal who got elected to congress in New York on Tuesday is nothing more than a professional “community organizer.”  These people are both the past and the future of your Democrat Party, folks.

What you’re going to see on Saturday is a bunch of events organized by these Obama clones, in which most of the participants are not local citizens but paid protesters bused into these cities in buses paid for by George Soros and big foundations with names like Park and Heinz and Rockefeller.   There’s nothing organic about them and they really have very little local support.

Saturday, then, is actually the kickoff of the Democrat Party’s campaign for the general election.  These events will probably be fairly tame, but you can expect them to become increasingly shrill and violent as Election Day approaches and it becomes increasingly obvious the Democrats are going to suffer an other loss at the polls.  Because this is all the Democrat Party is anymore.  If you vote for them, you are voting for the destruction of the American Union.

Speaking of people trying to destroy our Union, Rod Rosenstein and Christopher Wray testified up on Capitol Hill before the House Judiciary Committee on Thursday, and boy, was it a spectacle.

Not that anything new really happened:  Wray was his normal dissembling, ineffectual self and Rosenstein was his normal hostile, transparently lying self.  This is who these guys are, and what they do.

Trey Gowdy got in his five minutes of hyperbolic grandstanding, after which he will go and accomplish nothing of substance, because that is who he is and what he does, too.  It’s always inspiring to listen to him chastise these people as only he can do, but then reality inevitably sets in and you realize that that’s really all there is.

Jim Jordan got the best rise out of Rosenstein and that was fun, but at the end of the day, Rosenstein is just going to go on withholding key documents from the various congressional oversight committees, and Wray is just going to continue being a feckless leader who is doing pretty much nothing at all to reform the disgracefully corrupted FBI.

I would talk about the Democrats on the committee, half of whom are illiterate half-wits, but really, that’s all that ought to be said about them.

So, another all-day hearing during which nothing of substance was accomplished.  After the hearing, the full House of Representatives did vote along party lines to approve a resolution that DOJ produce the documents by next Thursday.  But the “resolution” is non-binding and fails to spell out any potential penalties for Rosenstein failing to comply, which will certainly be the case.

The reality here, of course, is that the House is not going to really do anything until and unless Speaker Paul Ryan is replaced by someone who possesses a set of gonads.  Because Ryan is the obvious block to any effective action, and as long as he’s the Speaker, the current stalemate will continue.

Just another day in nothing real happening here, folks, move along America.

That is all.

Mexico’s Next President Promises to Make Our Immigration Problems Exponentially Worse

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Tired of all this Winning yet? – JSW Steel announced a $500 million investment in the revitalization of the Acero Junction facility located in Mingo Junction, Ohio.  Faced with the possibility of import tariffs being implemented by the Trump Administration, JSW chose to make this massive investment in America rather than construct an entirely new plant in India.

“The Trump administration was the driver behind giving us in the U.S. the ability to compete for capital,” JSW Steel USA CEO John Hritz said during a First on FOX Business interview with Edward Lawrence on Thursday.  “We are going to revitalize that facility and that entire community.”  Other than the story linked here and a couple of other web-based reports, the fake news media completely ignored what would have been a major and extremely rare story during the Obama Administration.

Leftists hate you and want to take your freedoms away, Part 9,885. – Donny Deutsch, the hair jelled-up metrosexual doofus who for some reason appears on Morning Joe each morning, told the show’s puny audience on Friday that Trump supporters are “like Nazis” and encouraged leftwing agitators like Antifa to target such supporters rather than the President himself.

“What has to happen now is this can no longer be about who Trump is, it has to be about who we are if we’re working towards November,” he said. “We can no longer say Trump’s the bad guy. If you vote for Trump, you’re the bad guy. If you vote for Trump, you, not Trump, are standing at the border like Nazis saying ‘you here’, ‘you here.'”

So our fake news media has invented this border issue out of whole cloth, taking a standard process of  temporarily separating illegal alien parents from minors that is common practice in Canada and most other free nations and portraying it as the return of concentration camps – as I predicted they would back in December 2016.  They and their Democrat wards have now spent the last week becoming increasingly shrill and at times violent in an effort to turn this situation into an election-impacting issue, in keeping with the Saul Alinsky Rules for Radicals playbook that they religiously follow in their daily lives.

With a raft of late-week polls showing they are failing in this effort, mental midgets like Deutsch get frustrated and resort to just lashing out at anyone they can think to demonize, which is of course the clearest sign we can have that the bad people are losing the issue.  The Democrat/Media propaganda complex will continue trying to keep the issue alive for awhile longer, but it’s a loser for them because most Americans do not want the completely open, unregulated borders that is always the goal of the American left.  So you can bet they’re already getting ready go to the next page in their playbook and drum up a new fake issue starting next week.

So predictable.  So tiresome.  So utterly un-American.  That’s who these people are.

And hey, they have a new hero who is about to become President in Mexico.  Isn’t that wonderful?

Yes, friends, Andrés Manuel López Obrador, or “AMLO” as his supporters like to call him, is going to be elected the next President of Mexico come July 1.  AMLO is a 64 year-old leftist radical who has been bouncing around the Mexican political scene for 40 years, just waiting for the moment to arrive when he can seize power and turn our neighbor to the South into another banana republic in the style of Castro’s Cuba and Maduro’s collapsing Venezuela.  That time has now arrived, as AMLO is so far ahead of his pathetic opponents in recent polls that the vote is a foregone conclusion.

So if you think the problem of illegal immigration is bad now, just wait until this nutjob assumes office come December 1.  By this time next year, unless congress acts (which is like expecting your cat to scrub your toilets) we are going to be in the midst of a REAL humanitarian crisis down in the Rio Grande Valley of Texas, not some fake crisis made up by the fake news media.

And yes, you can quote me on that, because this is not speculation, it is an inevitability that AMLO is literally promising to create in his campaign speeches.  You don’t have to believe me, just check out these quotes from a speech this week that were reported by the Daily Caller on Friday:

“And soon, very soon — after the victory of our movement — we will defend all the migrants in the American continent and all the migrants in the world,” Obrador said, adding that immigrants “must leave their towns and find a life in the United States.”

He then declared it as “a human right we will defend,” eluniversal.com reports.

For all you Morning Joe viewers, Pantsuit Princess fans and Bernie Sanders sycophants out there, this is what any sane country would treat as an outright declaration of war.  This is a promise to not just do nothing to prevent the illegal migration of Mexican and Central American citizens across the border into the United States – which is what the current and past Mexican regimes have done – this is an open commitment to literally cause and lead an overt, intentional invasion of the Southwestern United States.

AMLO’s long-stated ultimate goal will be to overwhelm the social and political systems in the southwestern U.S. and, once that is accomplished – no doubt with the willing assistance of the Democrat Party and our fake national news media – begin a massive transfer of American wealth into Mexico.  AMLO’s leftist policies will inevitably decimate the Mexican economy and turn the country into a Venezuela-style failed state, and he’s ok with that.  Because that is the best way to encourage millions of Mexico’s citizens to attempt to flood across the border with the United States.

This is not a conspiracy theory;  this is not paranoia.  This is AMLO’s plan, a plan that he has publicly laid out a thousand times during a 40-year political career, a plan that Univision fake news anchor Jorge Ramos was applauding and supporting on Tucker Carlson’s Fox News show Thursday evening.

Here’s the thing:  It’s not just the Democrats who don’t give a damn about this, Paul Ryan and Mitch McConnell and the rest of the establishment Republicans in congress don’t give a damn about it either.  So get ready, because your government isn’t going to do a damn thing to stop it, other than whatever President Trump is able to do through executive action.

Just another day in this immigration problem is going to get exponentially worse America.

That is all.
