FBI “Investigation” of Jeffrey Epstein’s Death Comes to the Most Predictable Conclusion Possible

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

This was so predictable that you wonder why they even went through the ruse. – Attorney General William Barr announced yesterday that his intrepid FBI “investigators” have managed to find no evidence that would dispute the coroner’s finding that serial pedophile pal of the Clintons Jeffrey Epstein committed “suicide” in a New York federal prison. Because of course that’s what our dumpster fire FBI found.

So, a couple of prison guards and the prison warden have been “reassigned,” Barr has ousted the head of the Bureau of Prisons (sacrificial lamb) and installed another one, and the whole thing will be blamed on “incompetence” and “irregularities” in the holding of the federal government’s most high-profile witness. Which is pretty much exactly what I told you was going to happen the day after Epstein was found dead in his cell.

If you are expecting actual “justice” here, you’re going to need another Justice Department, because the current one was irreparably corrupted by 8 years of Barack Hussein Obama.

As a reader notes, we should expect the cremation of Epstein’s body to take place soon and receive only passing mention in some remote crevasse of the New York Times.

How pathetic is Bill DeBlasio and his presidential campaign? – So pathetic that even the Democrat Pravda Channel CNN is making fun of his sounding like a chipmunk while calling into some poorly-attended labor event yesterday:

Now, that’s pathetic. And funny.

Farethewell, Jay, we hardly knew ye. – Washington State Governor Jay Inslee told MSNBC fake host Rachel Maddow that he will be leaving the presidential race, a race that 99% of Americans didn’t even know he was in. Not that anyone really cares, but the irony of 0%-polling Governor pulling out at this particular moment in time comes in the fact that he’s leaving the race just two weeks before Democrat Pravda Channel CNN hosts the long-awaited-by-no-one “Climate Change” debate for which Inslee has advocated for months.

Indeed, Inslee’s entire campaign was based on his pushing of the Climate Change scam, which he sees as so desperately urgent that we must all become just like Venezuela in order to fight it. No one at CNN or anywhere else in the fake news media will point this out, but that’s probably why Inslee consistently polled at 0%. Because, repeat after me, MOST AMERICANS DON’T WANT THIS COUNTRY TO BE VENEZUELA.

The good news for Americans is that no one outside of Washington will ever have to worry about hearing Inslee’s name again. The bad news for Washingtonians is that now Inslee can re-double his efforts to turning their state into a socialist utopia, just like Venezuela.

That is all.

Dem Debate, Night 2: A Status Quo-Preserving Farce

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

My goodness, feel free to shoot me if I ever do that again. – I’m afraid I made the horrific decision to actually watch the Wednesday night Democrat debate live, and I hardly got a minute of sleep as a result. What a horror show that party is.

You put any one of these circus clowns in the White House and this country as we have known it is over. Over and done. Overall, this has to be the dumbest bunch ever to take a debate stage together.

I never thought I’d witness anyone more useless than New York City Mayor Bill DeBlasio, but Washington Governor Jay Inslee gave him a run last night, and Colorado Senator Michael Bennet wasn’t far behind. Every time Inslee started talking about how wonderful he has been on “climate change,” I wanted to find a razor, fill the bathtub and slit my wrists.  Bennet, meanwhile, honestly sounded like he’d had one too many toddies before going on stage – I’ve never seen him speak in such a mush-mouthed way.

DeBlasio?  Why is he there again? This is a guy who is forcing his police officers to grin and bear it as they are assaulted by gangs of thugs, and he wants us to make him Commander-in-Chief? Go away, Tall Stupid Man.

As was the case on Tuesday night, the worst people in the room were the Democrat activists pretending to be moderators provided by CNN. Here is how these tools of the DNC allocated speaking time last night:

Biden: 21:01

Harris: 17:43

Booker: 12:59

Gillibrand: 11:18

Inslee: 10:46

Gabbard: 10:32

Bennet: 10:26

Castro: 10:25

DeBlasio: 9:41

Yang: 8:38

So, other than Harris and Booker, clear favorites of the DNC/Media complex, no one in the rest of the field got more than half the speaking time that Biden received. Yang – who the DNC hates with a passion and wants out of the race – got 40% of Biden’s time, which is three MORE minutes than he was allocated in the June debate.

That’s mostly the fault of the moderators, who didn’t pose a question to anyone other than Biden or Harris until the “debate” was half an hour old, but it was also due to a clever tactic employed by Harris. You can say what you want about Harris – and there are so, so many things to be said about her – but she is clever.

She obviously watched the first night and figured out how the moderators were doing things.  Anytime one candidate made a derogatory remark about or challenged another candidate, they then gave 30 seconds to the other candidate to respond.

Now, Creepy Uncle Joe is about 3 more facial surgeries away from becoming an actual Roman bust and extremely prone to gaffes, and Harris knows that camera and speaking time is his kryptonite. So, she spent most of her own time targeting Biden, which generally resulted in Biden stuttering and stammering in half-sentences and often in half-words and finally targeting her back, resulting in even more speaking time of her own.

She wasted most of that time, appearing nervous and offering nonsensical and evasive answers about her own record, but the tactic of exposing Creepy Uncle Joe was very smart and effective.

As a result, Biden ends up being one of the clear losers in this debate. His poll numbers will tank down into the low 20s in the next round polls to be released over the next 10 days or so. But he will go into hiding and those numbers will again recover back up maybe into the 30s as deranged Democrat voters forget who he really is and what he really looks and sounds like these days. Then the next debate will come around, and we’ll repeat the whole process again.

Despite all her air time, Harris is a clear loser because she will just tread water after this debate. She utterly wasted her breakthrough moment on busing with Biden from the first debate, and she can’t afford to just tread water anymore. Loser, loser, looooser.

Other clear losers include DeBlasio, Kirsten Gillibrand, Inslee and Bennet, all of whom should end their 0%-polling campaigns today. Andrew Yang was also a loser after wasting his air time by reciting scripted answers that often made no sense. He had the potential of being a real factor in this race, and has completely thrown it away by taking his “expert” advisors’ advice and becoming just another nervous talking points parrot. Too bad, so sad.

I’ve seen a couple of talking heads last night and this morning list Cory Spartacus Booker as a winner, but I don’t see it. Yes, he scored some debating points on Biden that will impress some Democrat voters, but optically he is a disaster. He apparently can’t help it, but Booker always appears to be right on the verge of going into some Manson-style Helter Skelter rage whenever he speaks. Plus, he’s gotten into the habit of waving his arms around crazily, as if he’s imitating Irish Bob O’Rourke. Debating points are nice, but optics are what really matter in these televised debates, and Booker’s optics are not good.

There were a couple of candidates who did themselves some good last night, and thus can be classified as winners. They are former San Antonio Mayor/Obama HUD Secretary Julian Castro and Hawaii Rep. Tulsi Gabbard.

Castro wins on demeanor – he was the calmest and most articulate person on the stage all night long. His ideas on immigration and other topics are mostly crazy, but he offers them with a quiet dignity that really allows him to stand out among his goofy, arm-waving, shouting and whining peers. Good optics there.

Gabbard also was a winner on the optics front – which, admit it, is pretty easy for her to do – but she was also able to score some direct hits on both Harris and Biden as the debate wore on. She was also the most-searched candidate on Google in all 50 states during the debate, repeating her performance in that category from the debates held in late June.

None of that is likely to do her much good, though, as the DNC and its media toadies hate her and will almost certainly find a way to exclude her from future debates, just as they are doing with Yang. Democrat voters seem to be interested in Gabbard and want to know who she is, but when they find out that she actually makes good sense on some issues, they run away in fear of coming in touch with reality. So she might as well just give it up at this point.

Taken together, this week’s two nights of debates will end up preserving the status quo, and enable Biden to remain in the lead for another month. In the meantime, the Commie and Fauxcahontas will keep jockeying for 2nd place position, Harris will continue to flounder, Mayor Pete will continue his slow fade into 0%-Black-Support oblivion, and Booker will keep on clinging to false hopes of catching lightning-in-a-bottle.

Everyone else might as well drop out now, but you can be sure most of them won’t do that. Those vanity campaigns are hard to give up.

That is all.

Swalwell Out; Steyer In; Democrats Swap One Hopeless Doofus For Another

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

[Editor’s Note: The Campaign Update will be silent from July 11 through July 23 because Dave needs some down time.]

The world mourns the loss of a leftist hero. – Americans all over…well…somewhere were saddened on Monday when Democrat presidential non-contender Eric Swalwell, who famously promised on Twitter to nuke recalcitrant citizens (see below) who refused to surrender their guns to his planned army of jack-booted thugs, announced he was ending his campaign. Swalwell had run a valiant, disciplined and focused campaign, one that saw him rise all the way up to next-to-last place in the race, reaching as high as .000001% in the polls before the first debates two weeks ago.

Sadly, this turned to to be the point of Peak Swalwell.

After what critics unfairly labeled as a “laughable,” “cartoonish,” and “is this guy really serious?” debate performance saw his poll standing fall to .00000001% in the polls taken afterwards, Swalwell reassessed his chances. Realizing that not even appearing on the same stage with the likes of Kirsten Gillibrand and John Hickenlooper had helped his standing with potential voters, Swalwell decided to throw in the towel (if only he could have been on-stage with Beto O’Rourke – then he’d have appeared almost normal). The decision point apparently came when he saw that his popularity had fallen even below that of the despicable and buffoonish Bill DeBlasio.

So back to congress he will go, where he can once again take up the gauntlet as CNN’s second-favorite liar about the Mueller Report, right behind his fellow California congressman, Adam Schiff.

“We have to be honest about our own candidacy’s viability,” Swalwell told reporters at a press conference Monday. “Today ends our presidential campaign, but it is the beginning of an opportunity in Congress with a new perspective shaped by the lives that have touched me and my campaign over the past few months.”

Neither of the two residents of Dubuque, Iowa whose lives apparently touched Swalwell were available for comment. Both were too busy cooking up a new batch of meth.

 

But never fear, for Tom Steyer is here! – Yes, friends, just when things look their darkest, a new self-serving light appears on the horizon. Self-styled “environmental” activist Tom Steyer – hey, did you know he amassed his fortune investing in coal? – plans to jump into the race today.

Oh, joy!

You may remember Steyer. He’s the guy who famously spent tens of millions of his own money in 2017-2018 on a series of TV ads promoting the impeachment of President Donald Trump. He is so personally repugnant on television that the ads actually caused the President to go up in the polls.

Oh, so he’s just like Eric Swalwell, but with a lot of money?  Yes, that guy.

Steyer is a one-trick pony, a pony whose one trick is exactly the same as Washington state Governor Jay Inslee, another sort-of-candidate who is polling at .000000001% in the presidential horse race. So Steyer apparently plans to swoop into the race, scoop up Swalwell’s .000000001% support and fight it out with Inslee over how to destroy the U.S. economy to fight the bogeyman “Climate Change.” The “winner” would presumably then have .00000002% support and be on a bullet to overtake DeBlasio for next-to-last place.

After that, he would obviously target Gillibrand and her .00000003% support, and be off to the races.

No telling how many millions Steyer is willing to part with in order to achieve his goals, but a fool and his money are soon parted, and Steyer has billions to part with. So, it’s probably a lot.

If they didn’t actually exist (which I’m assuming they actually do, though I have no real proof), the greatest fiction writers in world history could never come close to making these Democrats up.

That is all.

Last Night, Faucahontas Fest Turned into Tulsi Time

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

I did not watch last night’s Democrat debate, aka, Fauxcahontas Fest. Life is just too damn short to put myself through that nonsense. Plus, my blood pressure’s been a little elevated lately, and there’s no use monkeying around with that, right? Right.

But we can still draw plenty of conclusions from the festivities just from perusing the news coverage of the event this morning. Let’s go through some of them now:

Beto O’Rourke made an ass of himself, and we have photographic proof. – Irish Bob broke out in Spanish in a non-answer to a question posed to him early in the debate, and the look on Cory Booker’s face while he was doing it is priceless:

Fauxcahontas is standing there trying to figure out how to say all of that in Cherokee. Klobuchar’s looking for a notebook to throw at him. But I digress.

The best part was when the lights went out. Some enterprising NBC technician apparently decided that the paltry audience for this debate needed a break from all the larceny and nitwittery taking place, and doused the lights just as Chuck Todd and the guy sitting next to him… wait, that was a woman? Rachel Maddow? So hard to tell … were about to take their turn asking questions. President Donald Trump did the nation a service and sent out a tweet with a clip of that segment this morning:

Everybody lied about everything. Well, what did you expect? These are all Democrats. Of course they all lied about everything. If Democrats started telling the truth they’d never win another election.

Lieawatha did not get the most camera time. According to the New York Times (cough) that title when to the always verbose and dramatic Cory Booker. This isn’t all that surprising, really. Booker can filibuster with the best of them. Irish Bob got the second most time, but nobody understood anything he was saying, and all the arm-waving meant nobody was listening anyway.

Little Big Mouth Always Running, meanwhile, came in third place in the minutes race, 90 seconds behind Booker. Down at the bottom of the list were two outright Marxists, Bill Deblasio and Jay Inslee, both of whom need to pack things up, go back home and focus on ruining New York City and the state of Washington, which is their core competency.

Julian Castro, an actual Hispanic, apparently felt he needed to his punch fellow Texan and fake Hispanic in the gut last night in order to stand out. He repeatedly interrupted Irish Bob, and at one point also broke out into Spanish just to show the audience what a real Mexican American sounds like. Not sure it got him anywhere, but hey, when you’re polling at less than 1% you start to take desperate measures.

They all had favorite boogeymen. Because of course they did – they’re Democrats. Boogeymen are their stock in trade. Most notable boogeymen of the evening were: Climate Change, Mitch McConnell, and of course, Donald Trump. *sigh*

Tulsi Gabbard had a good night, but it probably won’t matter much. Here’s what I wrote about Gabbard and this debate on June 15, after the lineups for the two nights were announced:

You know who really got screwed by that draw? Tulsi Gabbard, who needs people to be watching in order to notice that she’s the only person on that stage who will be saying what she actually thinks, rather than reciting talking points written for her by other people, as all the others will be doing. Trust me, that’s not an accident, either, given that the Obama people who run the DNC detest Rep. Gabbard.

Well, Gabbard did have a good night, as evidenced by this chart showing which candidate was the most-Googled during the debate in each state:

Gabbard also overwhelmingly won the Drudge Report insta-poll following the debate, coming in at almost 40%:

Surprisingly, nearly 40 per cent of those who took the survey chose the 38-year-old congresswoman from Hawaii as the runaway winner

 

Unfortunately for the congresswoman from Hawaii, initial estimates are that just 9 million viewers were tuned into last night’s festivities (See? Life is just too short for most of you, too). That compares to the more than 30 million who regularly tuned in to watch the early Republican debates featuring Donald Trump in 2015.

So, Tulsi is likely to get a little bump in the polls out of this debate, but it will be difficult for her money-starved campaign to capitalize on it. Still, she remains the only actually interesting person in the entire field, simply because, like Donald Trump in 2015, she stands out as the only authentic person on the stage. If nothing else, she certainly elevated her prospects for being selected as a vice-presidential running mate.

Now, let’s talk a little bit about Fauxcahontas, because she is doing something interesting that I only see a few picking up on this morning. She is actually picking spots to channel the policies of … wait for it…Donald J. Trump.

No, seriously, think about it: She’s been running around the country lately talking about the need to break up the big social media giants, focusing especially on Facebook and Google. Who else has been talking in those terms? Your President.

Last night, she talked at length about the need to bring jobs back to America. President Trump has spent the last two-and-a-half years not just talking about that very thing, but making it happen. Bigly.

Whether you like the fake Indian or not – and honestly, how could any sentient being actually like her – you do have to recognize the clever nature of this approach. Expect her to start triangulating to adopt more successful Trump policies into her repertoire as the campaign goes on.

Optics matter. Irish Bob deciding to pander to Hispanics by breaking into Spanish at random was really poor optics, as are his constant head-bobbing and arm-waving. He is well and truly done after this debate, and should just run back home to Texas and challenge John Cornyn for the senate.

Though she had a good night overall, Warren really missed the boat with her spot on center stage by choosing to wear a dull purple jacket. It’s shallow, and maybe sexist, but one of the reasons why Gabbard stood out so clearly on that stage last night was because she wore bright red. The human eye is attracted to bright colors. If you want to call me sexist for saying that, then you’re a moron and I don’t have time for you.

So, judging from the media coverage of the debate this morning, here are the winners and losers:

Winners:

Donald Trump

Tulsi Gabbard

Fauxcahontas

Mitch McConnell (who got more air time last night than half of the contestants)

Cory Booker

Losers:

Irish Bob

Bill DeBlasio

Jay Inslee

Amy Klobuchar

Meh:

Everyone else.

I won’t be watching tonight’s second debate, either, but I will certainly provide another un-watched summary of events tomorrow morning.

That is all.

The Week in Review: A Rat, A Duke, A Dress, A Bug-Eyed Schiff and AOC

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

The Week in Review, courtesy of the @GDBlackmon Twitter Feed…

The week kicked off with a controversy about a 48 year-old interview in Playboy Magazine with John Wayne. A friend had the best take on that one:

Things only went downhill from there. Here SkyNews, the very liberal and very British affiliate of Fox News, asks possibly the least relevant question of the century thus far:

On the Sunday morning talk shows, California Democrat Bug-eyed Adam Schiff was doing what he always does…:

…and then CNN jumped into the competition with SkyNews to see which could post the most absurd story of the day, because of course they did.:

Charlie Sykes thinks we need Mitt Romney. I properly set him straight on when it was that we really did need him. It was a long, long time ago, and he failed us.:

Speaking of The Duke, let us bask in his greatness. Oh, and look who smiled and hugged him when she presented his award.:

Oh, yeah, the Oscars were Sunday night. Here’s how the ummmm…er….welllll….’men’ dressed for the occasion this year.:

The news-fakers at USA Today did their best to describe Mr. Porter’s attire a something it wasn’t, and I wasn’t in the mood for it.:

Ok, let’s just move on, shall we?

It was an exasperating week during which even the smart people were doing dumb stuff.  The normally astute Byron York asks a very dumb question.:

No further explanation required here.:

Like AOC, Harry Reid needs a self-awareness coach.:

As President Trump prepared to fly out to Vietnam to meet with the Crazy Little Fat Guy, the memes were flying. Here’s one of the very best.:

Speaking of lying California Democrats, I give you Kamala Harris.:

Offered without further comment, because none is needed.:

You really can’t make this stuff up, folks…:

Sometimes the future looks incredible, but then you think things through…:

Steve Goddard succinctly and hilariously sums up the #ClimateScam, something he does about 26 times every week.:

A blast from the past that never gets old.:

Hey, wonder which way Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s staff voted on this one?

Mere pocket change to today’s Democrat Party.:

The depravity of the Democrat Party has never been on more blatant display than it was this week.:

James Woods doesn’t like shaking hands, so I offered a solution.:

Here I thank AOC for her incredibly generous stupidity and shamelessly promote my website, all in 280 characters.  I can be efficient when I want to be.:

My Twitter feed also has its very own handy FACT CHECK service. No need to thank me.:

Seriously, you can’t make this stuff up, and who would really want to?:

Lara Logan continued her campaign to tell the truth about our fake news media. Our fake news media was not amused.:

Speaking of fake news, the news-fakers at Slate did their dead level best to avoid the point of the new HBO film revealing the true nature of the monster Michael Jackson, so I tried to set them straight. It probably didn’t work, but it made me feel better.:

Oh yeah, and the Rat was testifying on Capitol Hill most of the week. So tiresome.:

Shameless self-promotion, in case you missed it.:

The horrific outcomes of Democrat Party policy choices, part 23,252.:

Back on February, 7,  I wrote that Irish Bob O’Rourke had better Fish or Cut Bait on his decision whether or not to run for the presidency, speculating that he was running the risk of missing his moment.  That speculation looked pretty prescient this week when he made his announcement and almost nobody noticed.:

I couldn’t have said it any better…:

The Olympics have been trending towards PC fakery for many years now, but this week, they went all-in. No need to waste time watching anymore.:

This candidate for congress doesn’t know the difference between a fully-automatic weapon and a semi-automatic weapon. Needless to say, she’s a Democrat.:

If you don’t follow  Nick Searcy on Twitter, you are missing all the fun.:

Seriously, are there really people out there who are so damn dumb that they thought these two were doing anything other than promoting a film?  Really?:

If you missed this, you need to watch it, and I’m not kidding.:

Here I sum up Joe Biden without even having to talk about all his creepy handsy-ness with women and children.:

Some other guy jumped into the Democrat presidential race.:

Hey, you can’t blame a guy for hoping, can you?:

Good Lindsey Graham continues its takeover of Bad Lindsey Graham, a trend that’s been ongoing since John McCain left this life last August.:

Just in case anyone has forgotten…:

Glad he was finally arrested, but why did it take so long? Oh, yeah, because he assaulted a conservative at Berkeley. Stupid question.:

President Donald Trump (I never tire of typing those three glorious words) set the house on fire with a two-hour stemwinder at CPAC.:

Finally, Saturday was Texas Independence Day. God Bless Texas, y’all!:

That is all.
