Tin Ear Democrats Just Keep Embarrassing Themselves

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

Oh, my, what an embarrassment Saturday was for our Democrat friends. – Ok, they’re not really our “friends” – they’re actually enemies of the people who want to put anyone who disagrees with them on any issue from killing babies to throwing away the nation’s treasure on eliminating cow farts and building rail lines that can never be built in prison. Thus, watching them humiliate themselves in public has become a major new national pastime, a source of great joy to millions of normal Americans.

Saturday was just filled with banner episodes of this ongoing inadvertent comedy series, like this one from inexplicable presidential candidate Kirsten Gillibrand:

Seriously, any advisor who told her that was a good look that needed to be spread on social media should be summarily fired for cause. It doesn’t matter in the grand scheme of things, since Gillibrand continues to poll at or near 0 in every poll and has no shot at winning anything, but dang, girl, go buy some dignity. I hear WalMart has it on sale this weekend.

But poor Kirsten certainly had plenty of company on Saturday. Here’s the Pantsuit Princess once again blaming Russia for her humiliating 2016 loss in the presidential race. If you can stand it, watch as she engages in classic Clintonian projection by saying that “obstruction of justice did occur.”:

Why yes, “obstruction of justice did indeed occur:

  • 33,000 deleted emails that were under federal subpoena
  • subpoenaed hard drives bleach-bitted
  • subpoenaed cell phones smashed with hammers
  • outright perjury committed in FBI interviews
  • subpoenaed documents falsified and withhel…

Wait, she was talking about someone else? My goodness. Of course she was.

Or how about that always-reliable-for-a-good-laugh San Fran Nan? In the wake of President Trump’s smashing victory in obtaining major concessions from Mexico in his ongoing one-man battle to stem the flow of illegal immigrants, terrorists and drugs across our Southern border, the doddering, stammering Speaker of the House had this to say:

“President Trump undermined America’s preeminent leadership role in the world by recklessly threatening to impose tariffs on our close friend and neighbor to the south. Threats and temper tantrums are no way to negotiate foreign policy.”

Um, well, sorry Nervous Nancy, the evidence currently at hand says that threats and temper tantrums work just fine with our “neighbor to the south.” Do try to keep up, would you?

Then there was Pete Buttigieg saying this to an audience in Iowa:

 “At a time like today when you can still be legally fired in so many parts of this country because of who you are or who you love, we have work to do.”

For the record, there is no place in America where anyone – gay, straight, black, brown, yellow, white, Jewish, Catholic, Protestant, Native American or anyone else – can LEGALLY be fired because of who you are or who you love. Hard stop, as AOC loves to say.

That is a damnable lie, and if we had anything resembling an honest news media in our country, he would be forced to provide specific examples of where he believes numerous federal laws banning any such practice do not apply in the United States of America.

But we don’t have an honest news media in our country today, so nonsense like this just gets tossed out into the public consciousness with no effort to correct the record.

Buttigieg uses that line as a prop for his next line, which is “America was never that great.” Note to Mayor Pete: If you have to make stuff up in order to claim America was never great, America must be pretty damn great.

That is all.

President Trump is Laying the Groundwork for Executive Action on the Border Situation

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

There is just no good reason why any average citizen needs to own g…er…knives? – The murder rate in London surpassed that of New York City for the first time ever in February, as Islamic-driven knife killings continue to grow in the gun-banning metropolis.  As of this writing, no one at CNN had asked David Hogg for his views on London’s pressing need to ban knives.  But it seems to be just a matter of time.

Speaking of the ever-more annoying Mr. Hogg, he’s gonna have some ‘splainin’ to do with his CNN masters next time he goes in for an interview.  That’s because on Sunday he made the mistake of posing for a photo with Javier Manjarres, a Republican congressional candidate who is challenging Democrat incumbent Ted Deutch.

As if the sin of paling around with a – gasp! – Republican wasn’t damning enough in the eyes of everyone at the fakest of all fake news outlets, Hogg’s error was made even more unforgivable by the fact that Manjarres was wearing a t-shirt that depicts President Donald Trump urinating on the CNN logo (see below).  Oh, my, CNN might have to go find itself another gun-banning teenager to exploit.

Headlines we never saw during the Obama years… – The Wall Street Journal reports that the big economic issue facing Iowa and much of the rest of the American midwest is that there are too many jobs and not enough workers to fill them.

According to the Journal:

“It is a problem playing out in many parts of the Midwest, a region with lower unemployment and higher job-opening rates than the rest of the country. Employers, especially in more rural areas, are finding that there are just too few workers. That upends a long-running view in Washington, D.C., and many state capitals, where policy makers often say the unemployed simply lack the skills to get hired.”

Should the pace of economic growth and job creation experienced in the 14 months of the Trump Administration continue for another 14 months, this midwest-based “problem” will inevitably spread to other parts of the country.  This is an almost inevitable outcome as the overall economy approaches full employment.

Of course, there will be exceptions to the rule, isolated pockets of the country where chronic unemployment levels will persist and people will remain addicted to the public dole.  Those pockets of economic under-performance are easy to predict:  They go by names like Chicago, Washington, DC, Baltimore, Detroit, Los Angeles, San Francisco, New Orleans, Philadelphia and other big cities that have been governed by Democrats for decades.  It’s the way Democrat politicians like it to be.

DACA is dead, and NAFTA could be next, if Mexican officials don’t act to halt the caravan of more than 1200 Central American nationals that has been making its way through their country unimpeded over the last few days.  At least, that’s what President Trump said on his Twitter feed yesterday and early this morning, and as we have seen so many times in the past, the President doesn’t just toss stuff like this out there for no good reason.

The tweet storm began on Sunday morning, with these two Presidential messages:

“Border Patrol Agents are not allowed to properly do their job at the Border because of ridiculous liberal (Democrat) laws like Catch & Release. Getting more dangerous. “Caravans” coming. Republicans must go to Nuclear Option to pass tough laws NOW. NO MORE DACA DEAL!”

and..

“Mexico is doing very little, if not NOTHING, at stopping people from flowing into Mexico through their Southern Border, and then into the U.S. They laugh at our dumb immigration laws. They must stop the big drug and people flows, or I will stop their cash cow, NAFTA. NEED WALL!”

Mr. Trump expanded on this theme with three more tweets this morning, concluding with:

“DACA is dead because the Democrats didn’t care or act, and now everyone wants to get onto the DACA bandwagon… No longer works. Must build Wall and secure our borders with proper Border legislation. Democrats want No Borders, hence drugs and crime!”

So, after 7 months of publicly holding out hope that the cynical Democrats might want to make a deal in which DACA gets extended in exchange for wall funding and other immigration reforms, the President has finally figured out that the Dems never had any intention of making any such deal, preferring instead to keep the DACA kids in limbo so they can exploit the issue in the November midterm elections.  Ok, he knew that all along, but it’s good to see him abandoning all pretense, and calling things as they really are.

The problem the President has here is that there is literally no reason at all to expect the Senate Republicans to “go nuclear” or even lift a finger at all in an effort to change the immigration laws.  At least half of the GOP caucus in the senate favors chain migration and the insane “diversity lottery” system in their eagerness to attract campaign money from the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.

Sadly, it is up to the President alone to stop the ongoing invasion coming across our southern border.  If the President wants to build his long-promised wall, he’ll have to find a way to get it done using his emergency powers and the defense budget, as we discussed last week.  Expecting Paul Ryan and Mitch McConnell to do anything about it is just a waste of time and energy.

Given the President’s past use of his Twitter feed as a prelude to taking action, we should expect him to take some form of emergency executive action to address the border situation in the coming days.

Just another day in the southern invasion continues and congress doesn’t care America.

That is all.
