ObamaCare’s On-Again Off-Again Constitutionality Is Off-Again, For Now

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Huh. Guess congress did something about ObamaCare after all. –  The stain on our nation’s healthcare system that is ObamaCare was declared unconstitutional by a federal judge in Texas on Friday, and you’ll never guess why.

Remember last year, when we were all complaining that the Republican congress had failed to do anything effective to get rid of the atrocity? Remember when John McCain proudly cast the deciding vote in the dead of night, sneering in his belief that he had, in his final major act as a senator, saddled the nation with this economy killing nightmare into perpetuity?

Yeah, it turns out that McCain and everyone else might have been wrong. Judge Reed O’Connor – who everyone in our fake news media will be labeling as a “conservative judge” or a “right-wing judge” today, even though they never label any Obama appointee properly as a “Marxist judge” or “Alynskyite judge” – ruled that Obamacare was rendered unconstitutional last year when congress repealed the individual mandate tax contained within it.

This of course is the “tax” that Chief Justice John Roberts ruled really was a tax – even though Obama and every other Democrat on earth denied it was a tax, and the law itself did not call it a tax – when he twisted himself into tight little pretzels of illogic in declaring the law to be “constitutional” back in 2012. Yeah, that “tax”.

Judge O’Connor, in a suit brought by Texas and 19 other states, ruled on Friday that this “tax”  – which penalized anyone who didn’t purchase healthcare ‘insurance’ under Obamacare in order to subsidize the entire house of cards – was in fact the foundation of the entire house of cards. The states had argued that the individual mandate was “non-severable” from the remainder of the ObamaCare law, and the judge agreed.

President Trump got all excited when he heard of the decision and issued the following premature tweet:

The problem is that Judge O’Connor’s decision will be immediately appealed by the 14 states who argued in favor of ObamaCare, and thus will not become effective anytime soon, if it ever does. Justice Roberts, after all, has already demonstrated he is willing to go to any lengths of illogic to uphold the atrocity, and there are still 4 leftist clods on the court who will do or say anything to promote their own personal social views.

Still, it was fun to wake up this morning to the news that John McCain’s final sneering middle finger act to the rest of us has at least temporarily been invalidated.

It’s been a great week for goodbyes. – Man, getting rid of Jeff Flake and The Weekly Standard all in one week feels like Christmas come early! Toss Claire McCaskill into the mix, and it’s time to strike up “Joy to the World”.

Yes, friends, the execrable cretin Bill Kristol announced late Friday that the formerly conservative but now rankly liberal #NeverTrump publication, The Weekly Standard, would go out of business after it publishes its final issue on Monday. To that, I only have this to say:

Ok, I have one more thing to say. The sad part of this is that, while Kristol and fellow editor Stephen Hayes will be just fine in this deal, no doubt getting a massive severance deal and retaining their contributor agreements with various cable networks (Kristol has long been one of CNN’s favorite pet fake conservatives), the rest of the magazine’s staff is going to get royally screwed right before Christmas.

Still, the shutting of this rag is no loss to conservatism, no loss to the GOP and no loss to the country. It just is.

Wait, what? Huh? Come again? – Liberals are having such a hard damn time labeling themselves these days that it’s hard to keep up.  Take yesterday as examples:

First, Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth “Little Mouth Always Running” Warren gave a speech on Friday in which she outright declared that “I am not a person of color.” Holy crap. Wasn’t it just a couple of months ago that this congenitally dishonest hack was taking DNA tests, declaring that, because one of them found that she was 1/1024th (maybe) “native American” that she WAS a “person of color?”

Make up your mind, lady.

As if that’s not confusing enough, then you have some guy named Jonathan Rauch, who is apparently himself a gay man, writing a piece at the ultra-liberal rag The Atlantic declaring that “it’s time to take the ‘LGBT’ out of ‘LGBTQ'”.  I swear I do not make this stuff up. Here is a part of Rauch’s reasoning, which I must directly quote in order to not be personally accused of being a bigot:

“As activists and theorists sought to cover every base, they recognized asexuality and intersexuality and various other identities by coining LGBTQIAA+, LGBTTIQQ2SA, and other telescoping designations. Lately LGBTQ seems to have become the norm, on the assumption that Q, for queer, can stand in for all the rest.”

and this…

“If you like, you can think of it as short for queer. Or, if you don’t like, just Q. Give it any etymology you wish. Regardless, the term would be understood to encompass sexual minorities of all stripes. When we speak of ourselves as individuals, we would use gay or lesbian or transgender or whatever applies. When we need a blanket term, we would simply call ourselves Q. As in: the Q population and Q equalityQ is simple and inclusive, and carries minimal baggage. When we speak of Q equality, we are saying that discrimination against sexual minorities—or for that matter sexual majorities—is not the American way.”

That’s right: After decades of gay rights activists telling the world that the use of the word “queer” is in fact a bigoted slur (which it is), we now have a prominent gay “journalist” advocating that everyone go back to using the letter “Q” – which he overtly admits stands for the word “queer” – to refer to anyone in the gay community.

I can’t even.

That is all.

Big Winners in the Kavanaugh Fight: The American Voters

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

 

Democrats Friday morning:  Believe the women!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Normal people:  Ok, well, Susan Collins just spent an hour making a very compelling case for why Judge Kavanaugh should be confirmed, so…

Democrats Friday afternoon:  NO, NOT HER!!!! YOU CAN’T BELIEVE HER!!!!!!!!!!!!!

*sigh*…

 

What happens when the GOP surrender caucus doesn’t surrender? – You end up getting a Supreme Court justice confirmed.

Jeff Flake didn’t have much to say all day as he did a good job of avoiding protesters, reporters and presumably elevators, but Senator Susan Collins of Maine had much to say, and what she had to say clinched the vote in favor of confirmation.  It was a magnificent speech that laid out all the reasons why Judge Kavanaugh is supremely qualified for this role, and why his opponents had utterly failed to make any legitimate case against him.

Many who lack historic perspective called Collins’ speech a “throwback” to a time when the Senate was, as its traditionalists like to pretend, “the greatest deliberative body on earth,” but that is a lot of nonsense.  The truth is that the U.S. Senate has alway been a vile and nasty place filled with vile and nasty people, though I will admit that the Democrats made sure it became far more vile and nasty than normal during the course of this confirmation process.

Sadly for the people of Alaska, Senator Lisa Murkowski made her own floor speech later in the day, looking small and petty in comparison to Collins as she ended up trying to justify her “no” vote on some ill-defined concern that Kavanaugh might rule against her state’s Native Americans.  This is also nonsense – Murkowski’s political calculation here is all about her support for abortion on demand, and everyone knows it.

But even Murkowski had one redeeming moment, stating that, in the final confirmation vote today, she had agreed to vote “present” as a gesture of collegiality with Montana’s Steve Daines, who will now be able to fly to his home state and walk his daughter down the aisle at her wedding.

So, the Surrender Caucus didn’t surrender, and the Senate will end up doing the right thing at the end of a very sad and tawdry process for America.  But the damage by the Democrats and to the Democrats has been done, and millions of American voters have had their eyes opened to that party’s despicable true nature.  They will pay for their destructive and vicious tactics at the polls this November and in 2020.

Um…can we, like, change our minds now that we’re gonna lose? – Rumors were flying Friday evening that some of the Democrat Senators whose re-elections are in jeopardy were meeting to try to make a deal to change their “noes” on Friday’s cloture vote to “yes’s” on today’s confirmation vote.  Supposedly, this includes North Dakota’s Heidi Heitcamp, Indiana’s Joe Donnelly, Missouri’s Claire McCaskill, Montana’s Jon Tester and Florida’s Bill Nelson.

Should they do that, it would just demonstrate the typical Democrat utter contempt for the intelligence of voters.  Democrats rely on their belief that the people inclined to vote for them are complete morons, and all to often, they end up being right.  But in this instance, their party has already spent the last month demonizing this man as the second coming of Satan, pounding that message home across the nation’s TV screens seemingly 24 hours a day.

That’s a real hard thing to now just go back from.  You can’t just tell your support base that “Brett Kavanaugh is a violent drunk gang rapist!” on Friday and then wake up Saturday and say “Ok, well, but he’s fully qualified to sit on the Supreme Court!”.  Even the dimmest bulbs in the Democrat light fixture are going to have a hard time rewarding them for that sort of 180 degree turn.

Heitcamp and McCaskill are probably done in any event, so don’t expect a shift from them.  Donnelly, Tester and Nelson?  They’re probably craven and desperate enough to give it a try.  Regardless, their votes don’t matter at the end of the day, so whatevs, dudes.

Winners and losers… – I’ll do a listing of the week’s winners and losers in the Campaign Update Week In Review later day, or possibly tomorrow if the voting runs into the evening, but there is one yuuuuuuuuge winner in all of this that everyone needs to acknowledge: the American voter.  Because the American voter rose up in 2016 and decided to change the course of American history.

As voters went to the polls on November 8, 2016, our country was rapidly slouching towards becoming just another dying, European-style quasi-socialist, quas-democracy.  Every institution of the federal government, from the FBI to the DOJ, the state department to the EPA, the IRS to the National Security Council and on and on, had been utterly corrupted by eight years of Barack Obama.  Even the nation’s courts have been corrupted, as all the absurd rulings we’ve seen out of Obama-appointed judges over the last two years have demonstrated clearly.  The elevation of Hillary Clinton to the presidency would have ensured the completion of that trajectory, and the corruption would have only accelerated and ultimately become irreversible.

But just as the GOP Surrender Caucus rose up and refused to surrender on Friday, millions of voters all the “experts” told us would surely either stay home or vote for Clinton rose up, went to the polls, and cast a vote for real, radical change.  And boy, has Donald Trump given us that over the last two years.

Through just 20 months in office, President Donald Trump (I never tired of typing those three glorious words) has done away with about 90% of the wholly un-American Obama legacy, reasserted American influence and power across the globe, reduced ISIS to rubble and Islamic terrorism to more a nuisance than a security threat.

And later today, barring some last-minute seismic event, he will have achieved what Richard Nixon, Ronald Reagan and both George Bushes could not:  a 5-4 constitutional originalist majority on the U.S. Supreme Court.

Perhaps even more importantly, President Trump has provided an example that appears to be finally sinking in among his GOP colleagues:  That when you are viciously attacked by the depraved Democrats, the proper response is not to give them the “olive branch”, i.e., surrender they seek, but to fight back with everything you’ve got.

Make no mistake about it:  Donald Trump is the only GOP President in modern times who would have stuck with Judge Kavanaugh through this terrible, despicable assault on his character.  Even Reagan pulled the plug on Bob Bork when he was under similar duress.  The Bushes?  Please.

You, the American voters, gave us this indispensable man.  You, the American voters, created the victory that should take place this afternoon.

So pat yourselves on the back, voters, because you deserve it.  You made this.

That is all.

The GOP Surrender Caucus Holds The Fate of the Mid-terms in its Hands

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Man, nobody could’ve seen this one coming. Oh, wait… – If it sometimes seems to you that literally nothing the “Climate Change” scammers claim ever turns out to be true, that just means you are a keen observer of actual outcomes.

For our latest example, I bring you these findings from a new study conducted by researchers at…wait for it…HARVARD!:

“In two papers — published today in the journals Environmental Research Letters and Joule — Harvard University researchers find that the transition to wind or solar power in the U.S. would require five to 20 times more land than previously thought, and, if such large-scale wind farms were built, would warm average surface temperatures over the continental U.S. by 0.24 degrees Celsius.”

Here’s another problem with wind power that states like Texas and Kansas, that are home to an array of huge wind farms that are now moving into the final years of their useful lives, are about to face:  None of these states have regulations on their books governing the retirement, dismantling and disposal of those gigantic windmills.  That’s right – unless the landowners who leased their lands had the foresight to place such requirements in their lease agreements, these 200 to 700 ft. tall eyesores could simply be left standing to rot away if the wind companies don’t want to bear the expense of removing them.

The more you know about this stuff, the less attractive it becomes, which of course is why your fake news media has desperately avoided telling you about these inconvenient truths.

Just a few weeks ago, they all said this was tantamount to treason. – Everyone does realize that the Republicans have now snookered the Democrats into demonizing the FBI, right?  The ability of these people to literally take a 180 degree turn in their rhetoric without giving it a second thought is truly breathtaking.  And hilarious.  And demented.

And now, a word from our Why You Should Be Following @GDBlackmon on Twitter sponsors:

 

You keep using that term.  I don’t think you know what it means. – One of the big news stories that the fake news media studiously ignored on Thursday was the fact that no fewer than 8 people who were in college in the Maryland area during the 1980s have written letters to inform the Senate that “The Devil’s Triangle” reference in Judge Brett Kavanaugh does indeed refer to a drinking game similar to the game of “quarters.”

Yes, friends, it turns out that the entire Democrat Senate caucus – indeed, the entirety of the depraved American Left – got duped by a fake definition of the term that someone had placed in the online “American Urban Dictionary” just days before Christine Ford testified before the Senate Judiciary Committee last week.  Remember that this entire controversy was generated by a brief reference in Judge Kavanaugh’s high school yearbook, and that no fewer than three Democrat committee members – including Feinstein and Leahy – spent their time questioning Kavanaugh on it during the hearing on national freakin’ television.

My goodness.  This is the greatest troll in the history of trolls.

Oh, hey, good of you to give us a head’s up, Steve! – This little bit of news came through at about 7:00 ET last night:

But don’t panic – a few hours after the news broke, Sen. Daines issued a statement in which he says he will be around to vote on Saturday no matter what, which presumably means his poor daughter will have to delay her nuptuals until he can fly back to Montana late in the day on Saturday.

Being the father of a married daughter myself, I admire Sen. Daines for his determination to walk his own daughter down the aisle – it’s one of the biggest moments in any Dad’s life.  But you can imagine the panic among the GOP leadership in the Senate when they learned of Daines’s potential conflict, since they only have a one-vote margin on this confirmation, and the party’s Surrender Caucus of Jeff Flake, Susan Collins and Lisa Murkowski all remain silent as of this writing on how they plan to vote.

While these fake Republicans dither, their ideological equals on the Democrat side of the aisle are deciding en masse to risk their re-elections by opposing the nomination.  North Dakota’s Heidi Heitcamp woke up Thursday morning to the reality that she’s 12 points down in the latest poll, and just gave up.  Indiana’s Joe Donnelly and Missouri’s Claire McCaskill, both locked in nip and tuck races in their states, had announced their opposition earlier in the week.  Those three seats will all most likely end up becoming GOP gains in November as a result of those decisions.

That’s if – and it remains a big “if” this morning – these three Republican squishes do the right thing and vote to confirm Kavanaugh.  If any two of them do the wrong thing and vote against, then all bets are off.  A win on this nomination will energize the GOP voter base even more than it already has been, but a loss will certainly cause many otherwise-Republican voters to toss up their hands, say “screw ’em” and just stay home.

These next two days are, as President Donald Trump would say, Yuuuuuuuuuge.

That is all.

Trump Disrupts Democrat War on U.S. Workers With New NAFTA Deal

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Hey, remember when all the “experts” were telling you that President Donald Trump could not possibly successfully renegotiate the 25 year-old NAFTA deal? – Yeah, they were wrong about that, too.

The new name’s a little clumsy, but the deal is done, and the deal is much, much better for America’s workers, especially those in blue collar, farming and union jobs.  Hey, remember when those were the kind of jobs the Democrat Party used to at least pretend to care about?  Yeah, good times…

Today, as you absorb the no-doubt slanted news about this new trade agreement, remember that the very same “experts” who told you this could not be done are also telling you that Donald Trump will never, never, never, ever be able to really get the Crazy Little Fat Guy in North Korea to de-nuclearize the Korean Peninsula.  Do not be surprised when the successful completion of that effort is a major plank in Trump’s re-election campaign in 2020.

The Teenage Drama Queen gets a by-line in the New York Times, and boy is it a hoot. – Former FBI Director and current teenage drama queen James Comey penned an op/ed for the sad old New York Times on Sunday, because of course he did.  The most corrupt director the agency has ever had slammed the mounting of this week-long FBI investigation into all the absurd accusations directed at Judge Brett Kavanaugh, not be cause the charges are so obviously false, not because the Judge has already been the subject of 6 previous in-depth, open-ended FBI background checks, but because…wait for it…you can’t “put a shot clock” on an FBI investigation.

In other words, the very same corrupt, pathological liar who twice put a strict shot clock on the agency’s sham “investigation” into Hillary Clinton’s illegal email server has of course joined the Democrat chorus against the week-long time frame for this investigation that the Democrats agreed to just 3 days ago.  There are perfectly descriptive words for James Comey, but I just can’t use them here.

Sunday’s @GDBlackmon Twitter Deep Thought…

Hey, you know it’s true.

Meanwhile, in the Texas Senate Race… – Last Thursday, when it looked like the Senate would be held into session over the weekend to deal with the Kavanaugh nomination, Ted Cruz informed Irish Bob O’Rourke that he would not be able to make it to Houston for their scheduled debate early Sunday evening.  On Saturday morning, Cruz notified Irish Bob that he could in fact make it to Houston thanks to the idiotic machinations of Arizona Senator Jeff Flake, but Irish Bob declined, saying he now had made other “plans.”

So, what was Irish Bob doing at the very time the debate was supposed to be taking place?  Why, he was engaged in an hour-long Facebook Live session from his kitchen.

Obviously, Irish Bob still hasn’t figured out how he’s going to backtrack from his false denial of leaving the scene of the wreck he caused while driving drunk back in the 1990s.  Until he does, we probably won’t be seeing any more debates between the two Texas senate candidates.

Back to the Kavanaugh nomination process one more time. – So, the Democrat playbook for this week is now clear…

  • Agree to a limited FBI investigation to last no more than one week;
  • Spend the weekend wailing that the investigation is tooooooooooo liiiiiiiiimmmmittttteeeeeddddd!!!;
  • Find male “acquaintances” of Judge Kavanaugh from high school and college to tell Democrat media activists that the Judge, when a teenager, was a sloppy drunk;
  • Pretend it’s a really big deal that the FBI is questioning the second, obviously lying, female accuser;
  • Have the Dragon Lady from Hawaii all over TV claiming that the investigation is “falling apart” before it even gets started in earnest;
  • And then, late in the week – probably Wednesday night or sometime Thursday – have another female accuser crawl out of the woodwork with more false allegations; or
  • Maybe even have some leftwing activist parent of one of the kids Kavanaugh has coached in basketball over the years appear on CNN or MSNBC and accuse him of being a pedophile.

Or maybe both new accusations will come.  Remember that the Democrats’ favorite Saul Alinskly tactic is “projection,” i.e., accusing the Republicans of the exact behaviors of which they themselves are guilty.  Thus, accusations of pedophilia are pretty much inevitable, and indeed the leftists at USA Today already ran an op/ed implying that of Kavanaugh as an initial shot across the bow.

These people are demented, depraved and despicable, and nothing is beneath them.  To them, this is a war, literally.  It is a war not just on Judge Kavanaugh, not just on President Trump, not just on Republicans, but on all Americans who are not part of one of their aggrieved classes.  Frankly, it has even become a war on many of them – witness the bullying and booing of Kanye West that took place during his appearance on Saturday Night Live this past weekend.

This is not your father’s Democrat Party.  There are no moderates in that party anymore, no Scoop Jackson Democrats or even Lloyd Benson Democrats.  It is only possible to see their true nature with clear eyes when you accept the reality that there simply are no more decent people in the national Democrat Party today.  Not one.

These people are all about one thing:  The re-acquisition of power.  They will do literally anything to achieve that goal.  So buckle up, and don’t be surprised by the depravity to come this week.

That is all.

GoFundMe Accounts are the Democrats’ Latest Racket

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

A (spineless) man in his element. – If you’re into punishing yourself, tune into tonight’s “60 Minutes” on CBS, where the Amazing Man With No Spine, Jeff Flake, will appear in a joint interview with Democrat Senator Chris Coons.  There you will see a man truly in his element, sitting down and sharing talking points with a Democrat politician and a Democrat activist fake journalist from CBS.

Hey, who knows?  Maybe this is a job interview for Flake.  After all, the ratings for the CBS Evening News have been in the toilet for years now, and Flake couldn’t do any worse than the current anchor guy is doing.

As if to prove my point about where he is truly in his element, Flake also made a joint appearance with the slimy Coons on stage at something called the Global Citizen Festival, a music event organized and televised by the newsfakers at far-leftwing MSNBC.  There, in front of this mob of social justice warriors, snowflakes and disciples of George Soros, Coons of course hailed Flake as a “hero,” which is exactly what he is to these people.

What would you do for a cool $1 million? – #MeToo movement activists and their fake news media shills have spent the week castigating anyone who dares to question Christina Ford’s serial lying about Judge Kavanaugh by claiming “there’s nothing in it for her to come forward!”

Uh, well, it turns out there a ton of money “in it” for her to tell her tale, as two GoFundMe accounts set up in her name have now already raised more than $700,000 and will certainly top $1 million and much more before this coming week is out.  Now, these funds were ostensibly set up to pay for Ms. Ford’s legal costs, but her own lawyers testified under penalty of perjury to the Senate Judiciary Committee that they were in fact working “pro bono” for Ms. Ford, so this money is actually most likely going right into the witness’s pocket.

So, here’s a hypothetical: let’s say you’re a college professor knocking down no more than $150,000 per year, and someone comes to you and tells you that hey, you can make a million bucks by spending the next couple of months being prepped for testimony by some of the world’s greatest experts in training people how to lie on the witness stand, and then spending half a day in front of a congressional committee.  All of your expenses will be paid, and you’ll be set for life.  Would you do it?

If you hadn’t figured this out yet, the use of these GoFundMe accounts is the new Democrat racket – the new way they have landed on to bribe people for doing their bidding while avoiding the scrutiny of the IRS, the FBI and the Federal Election Commission.  Andrew McCabe, Peter Strzok, and several others have now profited handsomely from this racket, and it will continue unless and until these federal agencies get their acts together and start auditing where the money is coming from and for what purpose.

“Wait, me?  I didn’t do that.  Er, uh, we didn’t do that.  I don’t think…did we do that?  What?  Er, um, my staff tells me we didn’t do that.” – President Donald Trump (I still never tire of typing those three beautiful, gorgeous words) was in West Virginia campaigning for GOP senatorial candidate Patrick Morrisy and against Democrat snake Joe Manchin last night.  During his stemwinder (they’re always stemwinders at these events) he did a hilarious riff on evil Dianne Feinstein’s stammering non-denial denial when Chuck Grassley asked whether she or her staff had leaded Ms. Ford’s letter to the fake news media.

Here’s the link.  Trust me – you have got to watch this.  Too funny for words, and dead on.

Let’s close this Sunday morning tour de force with some examples why, if you aren’t following @GDBlackmon on Twitter, you are not having enough fun in life:

And finally, there’s this PG-13 rated little gem…

Lindsey Graham Just Changed the Course of History

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

He said, she said, Lindsey said.  Game over. – I’ve said this several times over the last year, ever since John McCain took ill and was forced to pretty much remove himself from the scene in the nation’s capital, but it bears repeating here:  It is absolutely amazing just how great Lindsey Graham has become now that he is free from the pernicious influence of John McCain.

It is not an overstatement to say that Lindsey Graham changed the course of history yesterday.  Not an overstatement at all.  Up to the point of his decimation of the Democrats on the Senate Judiciary Committee and his laying bare of their despicable scheme against Judge Brett Kavanaugh for all the world to see, it is very likely that Judge Kavanaugh did not have a single Democrat vote in his favor for confirmation, and he probably would have lost several Republicans as well.

Yes, Judge Kavanaugh had acquitted himself extremely well.  His passionate, emotional opening statement was perfect, a revelation of a man outraged at the coordinated assault the Democrats and their proxies like the Creepy Porn Lawyer had mounted on his character, his life and his family.  The obvious contempt for those senators that oozed from his pores as he answered their idiotic questions about his high school yearbook was wholly justified and reflected the righteous indignation and anger being felt on his behalf by tens of millions of ordinary Americans out here in Flyover Country at the despicable spectacle the Democrats had organized against him.

But to that point, the day was probably a draw.  Dr. Christine Ford had also done well enough in the morning to probably give cover for every Democrat senator – even those up for re-election in so-called “Red” states – to vote against this nomination, and had likely created enough doubt about Kavanaugh and his character to frighten wobbly-kneed Republicans like Susan Collins, Jeff Flake and Lisa Murkowski away.  Ms. Ford was obviously lying about many things, but her job in all of this was only to create confusion and doubt, and she had successfully done that.

Everything changed when Senator Graham, upon returning from a 15-minute break in the proceedings, insisted on taking the questioning away from Maricopa County Attorney Rachel Mitchell and exercise his own senatorial privilege.  Graham only asked a couple of questions of Judge Kavanaugh during his 5 minutes, spending the remainder of his time unleashing holy hell on his depraved Democrat “colleagues” and changing the tone of the entire afternoon.

Had a similar outburst come from any of the other GOP senators on the Committee, it would not have had much effect.  But coming as it did from Lindsey Graham, who sadly had largely wasted the past dozen years following the execrable RINO McCain around like a little puppy dog on a leash, pretending that the Democrats were just well-intentioned “colleagues” and that such a thing as “collegiality” still existed in the U.S. Senate, and helping McCain and the Ds push open-borders and other globalist policies, it was a visible shock to the Democrat system and to their propaganda wing in the fake news media.

From that point forward, the Democrat senators were obviously cowed and never laid a glove on Judge Kavanaugh.  Their focus on asking the Judge about the meaning of passages in his high school yearbook and endless calls for a man who has already been through no fewer than 6 FBI background checks to call for yet another one made them look like the silly, disengenuous jackasses they truly are.

Left at long last to his own devices, freed from the destructive influence of McCain, Lindsey Graham grew into his full potential as a leader, as a senator and as a man on Thursday.  He abandoned the ranks of the RINO placeholders in the U.S. Senate and, just in the nick of time, achieved greatness.

As a result, Judge Kavanaugh will receive a “do confirm” recommendation out of the Judiciary Committee today, probably along party line votes.  After the senate spends the following few days going through all its goofy Kabuki theater floor speeches and cloture nonsense, Kavanaugh will be confirmed on Tuesday to become the next associate justice to the U.S. Supreme Court.  At the end of the day, he will probably receive right at the same number of total votes as did Neil Gorsuch, with several squeamish Red state Ds joining all 51 Rs to confirm.

But much more than that was at stake here.  As I wrote last week and again earlier this week, our constitutional guarantees of the right to face our accusers and the presumption of innocence for the accused were under assault and on the line in this nomination, thanks to the the Democrat conspiracy to destroy this man’s life on the front pages of our nation’s fake newspapers.

I have been extremely critical of Senator Graham over the years, mainly due to his slavish devotion to John McCain, and I believe he deserved every bit of the criticism he received over those years.  But today, he is my hero because, when the moment came when he and only he could summon the personal gumption to stand up and change the course of history for our country, he rose to the occasion and grew into his potential as a true statesman.

God bless him for doing that, God bless Judge Kavanaugh and his family and God bless America.

That is all.

This is the America the Democrats Want

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Because Hollywood is bankrupt of ideas. – The “new” version of “Murphy Brown” apparently premiered last night, and, at least according to the reviews, nothing has changed except for the fact that all but one or two of the cast qualifies for Medicare.  The show itself is still the smug, preachy vehicle for leftist writers and leftist actors to pawn their leftist views off on any poor soul who happens to stumble across CBS in their search for reruns of “Flip or Flop”.

Dang it, and I just remembered that the “new” version of “Magnum, PI” premiered on Monday, and I missed it.  Hey, don’t judge me – mediocre remakes of some old ideas are better than others.

Speaking of bad remakes of old ideas, the new version of “The Cosby Show” hasn’t worked out too well for “America’s Dad”, who got sentenced to 3 to 10 years on Tuesday for being a lifelong sexual predator.  While that probably will amount to a life sentence for the 81 year-old Bill Cosby, it doesn’t really seem like enough, does it?

And for any leftist pinheads who are about to scream “but…but…but…BRETT KAVANAUGH!!!!!!!!” at your computer screens, this is actually an instructive moment in time, or it would be if any of you were capable of reasoning in a rational manner.  See, the gigantic difference here is that the accuser of Mr. Cosby in this case brought not only allegations that a crime had been committed upon her, but also brought a ton of actual supporting EVIDENCE of said crime.

It remains questionable whether what Christine Ford alleges even amounts to a “crime” in a legal sense, although it certainly would be bad behavior by a teenage boy 36 years ago.  While the second accuser does allege the commission of an actual crime, she obviously has no real clue whether the person who committed it was in fact Judge Kavanaugh.

Neither accuser of Judge Kavanaugh has to this point brought a single lick of evidence to support their allegations.  Not even life-long friends of either woman are willing to back them in any real way.  Even at this late time, one day before the scheduled hearing, it remains doubtful that either accuser even has enough confidence in their story to be willing to show up and testify under oath.  The second accuser has in fact made it very clear she will not be coming forward; meanwhile, Christine Ford’s crack team of high-dollar Democrat activist lawyers spent the day on Tuesday still making ridiculous demands on terms for her testimony, demands that they know Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley and Majority Leader Mitch McConnell will not meet.

The Cosby situation is not remotely comparable to the clown show going on with Judge Kavanaugh, so all of you need to just stop making yourselves look stupid.

The vote has been scheduled, at least for now. – Chairman Grassley did finally take the action of scheduling a vote of his committee for Friday, giving the 72-hour advance notice required by Senate rules.  Democrats naturally wailed and tossed tantrums and did interviews on CNN and MSNBC all afternoon, because hey, they’re Democrats and that’s what they do.

But the vote has been scheduled for September 28, and Majority Leader McConnell took the additional step of notifying every senator to plan to remain in Washington, DC this weekend.  That’s because Sunday is September 30, and McConnell no doubt plans to hold the vote of the full senate on the Kavanaugh nomination that day, after giving the 48 hour notice following the committee vote that is also required by Senate rules.

Oh, these Republicans – they’re such rules followers.

And that’s really the deal here at the end of the day:  If the Republicans just hold together and follow the rules, they will get Judge Kavanaugh confirmed at the very last possible moment for him to take his seat on the Supreme Court when its new session begins next Monday, October 1.  Regardless of all the wailing, moaning, temper tantrums, false witnesses, radical leftist demonstrations, Kamala Harris lies, Cory Booker “I am Spartacus!” moments, and a never-ending parade of d-list celebrities and other mental patients being paid by George Soros and the DNC to disrupt the process, the Democrats remain powerless to stop this nomination when all is said and done.

Their only remaining hope is to do so much bullying and yelling and screaming and planting of so many fake news stories in their media outlet partners that they are able to convince any two Republican squish senators to vote against the nomination.  Their main targets have been exactly who you’d expect:  Lisa Murkowski, Susan Collins and of course Jeff Flake.  For Collins and Murkowski, the question is all about their support for abortion and for Flake its all about burnishing his credentials for his post-senate gig as a paid contributor to CNN or MSNBC, where he has become the favorite fake Republican ever since John McCain took ill a year ago.

Collins so far has remained pretty firm in the face of all the Democrat abortion lobby fury that’s come her way.  Murkowski seems to be going wobbly, and keeps talking nonsense about how an “FBI investigation” could just solve all of this, even though the 6 previous FBI background checks Kavanaugh has been subjected to never turned up anything worse than parking tickets in his life.

Flake is Flake:  a preening, disloyal, self-promoting jerk whose time in the Senate blessedly ends on December 31 in any event.  He for some absurd reason sits on the Judiciary Committee (how did McConnell allow that to happen?) and thus could tip the vote to the Democrats there if he wants to.  The nomination would still go to a vote of the full Senate in any event, but with a “do not confirm” recommendation that could give other fence-sitting Republicans an excuse to vote with the Democrats.

It’s a momentous week:  As despicably as the Democrats and the media have behaved to this point, you should only expect it to become more despicable, hysterical and shrill as Sunday approaches.

This is the America the Democrat Party has given us, the America the Democrats want, the America their lord and savior Saul Alinsky envisioned.  Never forget that immutable fact.

That is all.

Rejoice, Democrats: Your Next High-Tech Lynching Has Arrived!

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Democrats raise the depravity to new heights. – After news of the “anonymous letter” from a woman who knew Brett Kavanaugh in high school, accusing the Supreme Court nominee of unspecified teenage misconduct, came to light last week, here is what The Campaign Update told you we would soon find out:

=================================

Trust me on this, it is only a matter of time before…

– We find out the accuser’s name;

– We discover she is being represented by some scumbag lawyer like Michael Avenetti or Lisa Bloom or best of all, Gloria Allred;

– We find out she got paid a ton of money by some Democrat-affiliated, Soros-funded third party group to write and send the letter; and

– We start seeing leftwing talking heads and Democrat politicians rolling out their next big talking point, which will be that we must – MUST – place the Kavanaugh nomination on hold until these oh-so-credible accusations, which will almost certainly be luridly sexual in nature, can be sorted out.

=================================

That was last Thursday.  On Sunday, we found out most of that information, courtesy of the fakenewsers at the Washington Post.

The accuser’s name?  Christine Blasey Ford, a longtime leftwing activist, professor at extremely liberal Palo Alto University in California, and Bernie Sanders contributor.  Totally credible.

The accuser’s lawyer?  Not the Porn Lawyer, nor the execrable Ms. Bloom nor her even more execrable mother, Gloria Allred.  But just as bad: One Debra Katz, a longtime leftwing Democrat activist who was recently quoted as describing anyone who works for President Trump as “miscreants.”  Katz also was part of Hillary Clinton’s “Bimbo Eruptions” team, a group of women who viciously slandered any of the myriad women who came out of the woodwork to accuse Bill Clinton of sexual misconduct.  Just a lovely person, no doubt.

How much has Ms. Blasey Ford been paid to do this?  We don’t know this bit of key information yet, but you can bet tons of people are working on that particular question as you read this.  The going rate for this sort of thing during the 2016 presidential campaign was about $150,000; for accusers of Roy Moore, the bidding got up over $200,000.  The execrable lawyer Ms. Bloom got caught offering something like $700k to one #MeToo accuser.  Ms. Blasey Ford may or may not have been paid to do this, but the history of this sort of Democrat dirty trick tells us there’s a pretty good chance that some big, big money is behind this.

Very predictably, the calls from Democrat politicians and fake news readers that we must – MUST – place the Kavanaugh nomination on hold until these accusations from this woman – who the Democrat/fake journalist joint talking points insist is a “credible witness” – can be sorted out literally rained down from the heavens throughout Sunday afternoon and evening.

Of course, the truth is that Ms. Blasey Ford is not credible in any way, shape or form.  Even a rookie public defender would rip her story to shreds were she to try to roll this junk out on the witness stand in a court of law.  The mere fact that she has allegedly sat on this “information” for 36 years, as Mr. Kavanaugh rose through the ranks of the federal judiciary, as the FBI has conducted no fewer than 6 thorough investigations into his background, even as he went through a highly-publicized confirmation before this same Senate Judiciary Committee when he was nominated to serve on a federal appellate court – that she sat on her hands through all of those years and all of those hearings and investigations alone renders her as a wholly non-credible person.

She claims to have passed a lie detector test administered by a “former FBI agent”.  Oh, really?  Was that agent’s last name Strzok?  Page?  Comey?  McCabe?  The possibilities are almost endless here.

Meanwhile, despite Ms. Blasey Ford’s laser-clear memory of this “incident,” she cannot remember where this party was held, who owned the home in question, how she got to the party, or who she arrived there with.  Oh, but she does remember that Kavanaugh allegedly had a partner in this “incident,” and even the guy’s name – some poor schlub named Mark Judge, who, like Mr. Kavanaugh, categorically denies the story, calling it “just absolutely nuts.”

Yes, it is absolutely nuts, but this is today’s depraved Democrat Party we’re talking about here, and the fake news media which serves as its propaganda wing.

Sadly, it’s also nervous Republicans like Lindsey Graham and shameless swamp skunks like Jeff Flake, both of whom are now getting all wobbly in the knees and calling for Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley to bring Ms. Blasey Ford before the Committee for a hearing before the scheduled committee vote this Thursday.  The accuser says she’s willing to do that, no doubt in the hopes of becoming the new darling of the news media, a modern-day Anita Hill.  What a goal to have in life.

Given that every Democrat on that Committee knew about Ms. Blasey Ford’s allegations when the full week of hearings on this nomination took place, and conspired to keep it in their hip pockets, Chairman Grassley should refuse to cowtow to his weak-kneed colleagues and simply follow through with his scheduled vote.  But he won’t do that, because congressional Republicans have no, well, um, let’s call them “huevos”.  (Look it up if you don’t understand rudimentary Spanish.)

So we’re going to have another gigantic, disgusting spectacle this week, probably two full days of salacious, slanderous hearings that will only serve to divide the nation even further than it already is, brought to you courtesy of depraved Democrats and gutless Republicans.

A pox on all their houses.  Every one of them.

That is all.

[Addendum:  Don’t just assume that Ms. Blasey Ford is the only accuser the Democrats are holding in their hip pockets on this nomination.  The Roy Moore episode makes it clear that they may well have a number of longtime leftist activist Bernie Sanders donors willing to come forward and slander Mr. Kavanaugh’s reputation.  Say tuned, if you can bear it.]

Sunday in Politics: An Endless Parade of Nitwittery

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

An endless parade of nitwittery. – Fox News Sunday set a new low for its “panel of experts” yesterday, presenting viewers with a four-person panel that contained both Juan Williams and ex-Obama State Department spokesperson Marie Harf.  Anyone who watched the panel through its two full segments was assured of losing at least 15 IQ points.  But no worries – the IQ loss can be regained simply by reading anything written by Victor Davis Hanson.  The succinct little piece linked here would make a great start.

CNN remains the fake news media king of Nitwittery. – After it was revealed that the Islamic terrorists who were training a small army of kidnapped children out in the wilds of New Mexico were planning on mounting an assault on an Atlanta hospital, all the fake journalists at all the fake news outlets went into a frenzied effort to find some way to spin the story sympathetically towards the…wait for it…TERRORISTS.  Because, of course they did.

The fake news hacks at CNN were, as generally seems to be the case, the clear winners in this battle to come up with the worst take imaginable:

Yes, friends, the five mostly unrelated Islamic terrorists who were training the kidnapped children have now morphed into a “family” struggling with life without access to the 24-hour fakery of cable news.  Can there be any real doubt that CNN’s fellow fake newsers will award an Emmy to whichever fake journalist came up with this highly-creative line of BS?  No, no doubt at all.

Fake news media Nitwittery extends to Twitwittery. – Not to be outdone by her main competition at CNN, notorious New York Times Hillary Clinton lapdog Maggie Haberman issued this hilariously disingenuous tweet in response to one President Trump had sent out earlier in the day.

Mind you, Haberman is fake-mourning the very same John McCain who her current employer and most of the rest of the fake national news media slandered mercilessly throughout the 2008 presidential campaign, characterizing him at various times as a rapist, a spouse abuser, a misogynist, a racist and a madman.  But now that his dead body can be used to take absurdly cheap shots at a President Haberman hates, she’s all about the “mourning” of the very same man.

These people are disgusting ghouls.

The fake media Nitwittery even went international. – But wait, there’s more!  The London Daily Mail has now dictated the new fake media rule that because a politician who hated President Trump’s very existence has died, President Trump must stop playing golf!  I swear I don’t make this stuff up:

Honestly, could the nitwittery and dishonesty get more absurd than this?

Oh, yes.  Yes it can.

The fake Senator Flake tops them all. – McCain’s fellow Arizona RINO Senator, Jeff Flake, told an interviewer that the best way to honor McCain is as follows:  “By seeing the good in our opponents, by being quick to forgive, by realizing that there’s something more important than ourselves, to put service, you know, over and above our self-interest.”

This would be the exact same Senator Jeff Flake who just got back from a three-week vacation in Africa, which he took in order to prevent the timely confirmation of a raft of President Trump’s judicial nominees.  With McCain lingering on his death bed, Flake was able to deny the Senate Republicans the crucial 50th vote necessary to move these nominees and several pieces of legislation past the stonewalling Democrats.  But that did not prevent him from, upon his belated return to the U.S., lecturing the rest of us to put “service, you know, over and above our self-interest.”  Creepy, disgusting hypocrite.

No wonder the guy has a 15% approval rating among Arizona voters.

Just another day in the Nitwittery is not limited to our fake news media America.

That is all.
