Democrats Change Impeachment Talking Points, Fake Media Parrots Them

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

The Democrats have new talking points, not a new strategy, on impeachment. – In case you missed it, I told you yesterday evening that San Fran Nan has changed her talking points on impeachment, and went onto explain why it’s pretty much certain that she is lying (hint: her lips are moving).

In case you missed Pelosi’s comments and don’t want to click the provided link, here they are:

“I’m not for impeachment. This is news. I haven’t said this to any press person before. But since you asked, and I’ve been thinking about this, impeachment is so divisive to the country that unless there’s something so compelling and overwhelming and bipartisan, I don’t think we should go down that path because it divides the country. And he’s just not worth it.”

Of course, the fake news media, in its collective duty to serve as the propaganda wing of the Democrat Party, is treating Pelosi’s new script as if it were the 10 Commandments handed down from on high, and repeating them across the interwebnets and your TV screens this morning. Even some conservative voices are buying into the doddering Speaker’s new act, and treating her highly-qualified statements as if they’re some sort of “win” for President Donald Trump.

They aren’t.

To be fair to those fellow conservatives, it isn’t just Pelosi reading from a new script here. Bug-eyed California Congressman Adam Schiff, who chairs the House Intelligence Committee, echoed Pelosi’s remarks when questioned by CNN’s Manu Raju: “I think given how polarized the country is right now and given how the Republican members of Congress have prostrated themselves right now in front of the president, in the absence of very graphic evidence, it would be difficult to get the support of” the Senate.

But execrable New York Congressman Jerrold Nadler, whose own House Judiciary got the impeachment ball rolling by sending out 81 subpoenas last week, gave away the game when he told Raju “She laid down a number of conditions – it has got to be bipartisan, the evidence has to be overwhelming – which is what I’ve been saying.”

Get it yet? This is not a “win”, it’s not the Democrats backing away in fright from what polls show would be an extremely unpopular move to impeach the President. What it is is the Democrats, startled that the testimony by their “star witness” Michael Cohen was simply rejected by the vast majority of the public – including an overwhelming percentage of self-identifying Independents – now taking one step back and switching to a more cautious set of talking points.

Ok, I guess you could call that a moral victory of sorts.

But that’s all this is, folks – Democrats do this all the time. They and their media agents will stick with this set of talking points for a couple of weeks and then Schiff will start issuing subpoenas of his own. Then the talking points will change again, but the process and the strategy will remain the same.

The Democrats engage in this kind of deceitful behavior because they think you are a bunch of mindless sheep – and they are sadly right about the 37% of you who believed a word Michael Cohen said – and because they know the media is in their pocket and thus would never dream of holding them accountable.

Sorry to be repetitive here, but this is a learning moment for everyone. I know it is hard for many people to wrap their minds around exactly how abjectly dishonest the Democrat Party and national news media have become. Hard to believe this could have happened in this country.

But it has happened in this country, and once you accept that reality, everything they do and say makes perfect sense.

That is all.

Pelosi Claims She’s Against Impeachment, But Her Actions Say She’s Lying

The Evening Campaign Update
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

She’s against impeaching President Donald Trump until she’s for it. – Hey, know how to tell Nancy Pelosi’s lying? Her lips are moving!  Hah-hah-hahhhhhh!

Ok, yeah, it’s an old joke. Sadly for the nation, where San Fran Nan is concerned, it’s 100% true.

Monday afternoon, she told the Washington Post in an interview that she is opposed to moving to impeach President Trump, “unless (isn’t there always an “unless” or a “but” whenever any Democrat makes a “promise”?) there’s something so compelling and overwhelming and bipartisan” that it becomes unavoidable.

Pelosi is further quoted by The Hill thusly: “Impeachment is so divisive to the country that unless there’s something so compelling and overwhelming and bipartisan, I don’t think we should go down that path, because it divides the country.”

This is all just another lie from the most dishonest Speaker since Texas’s own Jim Wright held the office 30 years ago. All one must do to understand Pelosi’s lie in this instance is to spend 2 minutes analyzing the coordinated efforts the various committee chairmen who she appointed are lining up to do literally nothing over the next 18 months other than try to build a case for impeaching the President.

The execrable Jerry Nadler got that ball rolling a week ago when his House Judiciary Committee sent out subpoenas to the President and no fewer than 81 associates. Adam Schiff and Elijah Cummings, who chair the House Intelligence and House Oversight Committees, respectively, will follow with a raft of their own subpoenas by the end of this month.

The whole point of this tri-committee Witch Hunt is to build a case for impeachment that becomes “compelling and overwhelming” enough to provide congressional GOP squishes the cover they want to join in an effort to remove Mr. Trump from office. That’s what San Fran Nan’s “unless” phrase mentioned above is all about.

She’s against impeachment right now, but no one should think that in any way means she plans to lift a finger to stop it. To the contrary, she made the committee appointments she made specifically to get the most shameless partisan hacks possible atop those three committees.

That’s the truth. This is who Nancy Pelosi is, and how she operates.

That is all.

Why 2020 Will End With a Trump Landslide

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

Donald Trump is going to be re-elected in a landslide in 2020. In reality, the Democrats are behaving as if they already know their fate is basically sealed. That’s what all these congressional investigations are really all about – a panicked effort to keep portraying a duly-elected President as if he’s a criminal in the wake of the impending end of the failed Mueller Witch Hunt.

Those investigations will fail, just as Mueller has failed, to “get” the President, because the President is not a crook. Jerrold Nadler and his House Judiciary Committee sent out 81 subpoenas on Monday as the opening salvo in an effort to dummy up a case of “obstruction of justice” against Trump. This is a case that Mueller and his band of Clinton/Obama hacks has been trying to construct for almost two full years now, and utterly failed.

Are we really to believe that a congressional committee with far less investigatory power and fewer resources is going to be able to succeed where Mueller failed? Please.

In a few weeks, Bug-Eyed Adam Schiff and the Democrats on the House Intelligence Committee will be kicking off their own witch hunt effort to try to dummy up an “abuse of power” case against Mr. Trump. Mueller and his hacks have also gone down that road over the last 22 months and discovered a big, yellow “Dead End” sign.

Also along around the first of April, Elijah Cummings and the Dems on the House Oversight Committee will start their own witch hunt attempt to paste together a case on “public corruption.” Again, Mueller and his fellow American Gestapo members have been there, failed at that.

But the Democrats will go down these various dead-end paths anyway, and keep them all alive right through Election Day 2020 for one simple reason: President Donald Trump is running an extraordinarily successful presidency. The economy is humming, the stock market is booming, retirement funds are growing, ISIS has been utterly destroyed, and America is at relative peace in the world for really the first time in this century.

The Democrats hate all of that.

Even worse, the Trump presidency has been economically fantastic for Hispanic and Black Americans, with both demographic groups now experiencing all-time record low unemployment and high wage growth. The same is true for women, whether they realize it or not, and polls show Trump’s approval ratings rising among all those critical demographic groups.

So, the Democrats fully understand that they cannot run the 2020 campaign on issues and have any hope at all of winning. Thus, they devised this highly-coordinated plan of attack involving three House committees shortly after the 2018 election, exactly as they devised the whole “Russia Collusion” fairy tale in the days following the 2016 election.

Those of us who read Mollie Hemingway’s writings at The Federalist knew all this was coming last November 7, just three days after the election. That was when she posted her piece summarizing the conversation he had overheard Nadler loudly conducting in an Amtrak rail car they shared that day. This is all pre-planned, well-coordinated with key propagandists in our fake news media in order to ensure maximum coverage and reinforcement in traditional and social media.

This is who the Democrats are – it is what they spend pretty much all their waking hours doing. Nothing they do is about policy or what’s best for America or our people – everything they do is about the acquisition and maintenance of political power.

Here’s why none of this will work: Because the Democrats have no credibility with the public outside of their own, hate-blinded voter base. The three chairmen conducting these witch hunts – Nadler, Schiff and Cummings – are three of the most toxic partisan hacks in the entire congress.

Valid or not, Robert Mueller at least had the initial presumption of impartiality in the public’s mind, thanks to completely inaccurate and glowing media coverage. But these three Democrat thugs have already been written off by all but he most highly-partisan Democrat voters as having no credibility whatsoever.

Nothing any of these people say or “find” during the course of their witch hunts is going to have the slightest impact on the independent voters who really matter. To the contrary, those same independent voters will be driven away by the inevitable over-reaching and rank demagoguery to which various Democrat members of these committees will regularly resort. We already saw that happen in Cummings’ hearing with Michael Cohen.

All of which is why, as I told you way back in February 2017, Donald J. Trump is destined to be a two-term President, and a truly great President.

2020 is going to be a landslide.

That is all.

Thanks to Donald J. Trump, America’s Time for Choosing has Come

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

Life at the tippy-top sure does increase the old carbon footprint. – Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the dim-witted freshman Democrat from the Bronx, or somewhere, took incoming fire from the leering press over the weekend when it was revealed that she isn’t exactly walking her Global Church of Climate Change talking points.

Fresh off of saying “Climate Change” is a “national emergency” that mandates the elimination of gasoline-powered cars and proclaiming that “We’re like, ‘The world is going to end in 12 years if we don’t address climate change.’ And, like, this is the war; this is our World War II,” it turns out that the ex- and possibly future-bartender has been guzzling the gas at pretty much the same rate as all of her high-carbon-footprint colleagues. The New York Post reported over the weekend that her campaign ran up bills on gas-powered cars totaling almost $30,000 even though her campaign headquarters was just 138 feet from the nearest New York Subway station.

Even more puzzling, her campaign racked up 66 airline flights totaling more than $25,000 even though she was running in a very geographically-compact district. Where were all these people flying to and from, and what campaign-related mission were the accomplishing?

Ocasio-Cortez responded to the report on her Twitter account – because of course she did – thusly:

So, hey, all you little people: She’s just “living in the world.” Life at the “tippy-top” is good, and her plans involve putting a lot of people to work to force YOU to reduce YOUR carbon footprint – they have nothing to do with how the elite that she is now a part of would continue to live once they have banished those of you who survive the economic disaster they create to live in your new 19th-century existence.

One thing’s for sure: It didn’t take her long to memorize those Al Gore/Leonardo DiCaprio talking points.

Now for something completely gross. – Here’s something in everyone’s future if Ocasio-Cortez and her society-destroying minions have their way: A company in Spain is now manufacturing pukey-looking “vegan steaks” with a 3-D printer. Stock up on the ribeyes and briskets while you still can, folks, because this is where these lunatics want to force us all to go. There is not enough ketchup on earth to cover up the after-taste of that slop.

Hey, another 1-percenter enters the race. – Ex-Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper, a former oil and gas geologist who made his fortune as a pioneer of Colorado’s micro-brewery industry, announced really, really early this morning that he’s going to run for the 2020 Democrat presidential nomination. Because, you know, if Jay Inslee (who?) and this Pete Buttigieg (wut?) guy can run, why not a guy with a chain of beer pubs?

Makes perfect sense to me.

They were just kiddin’ about that whole “Russia Collusion” thing. – If you thought that the end of the Robert Mueller witch hunt would mean the Democrats would allow the nation to return to some sense of normalcy and regular order in its national politics, well, I want a double shot of whatever it is you’ve been drinking.

The end of the Witch Hunt over the Russia Collusion fantasy concocted by the DOJ/FBI cabal only means that the Democrats in congress move onto the next phase of their 4-year effort to deconstruct this President and presidency. Thus, the House Judiciary Committee chaired by despicable New York congressman Jerrold Nadler will issue no fewer than 60 subpoenas seeking documents and testimony in its own Witch Hunt, which will attempt to dummy up a claim of “obstruction of justice” by President Donald Trump.

Nevermind that Mueller has already spent months trying to create that case and failed, nevermind that the whole fantasy is based on the President’s firing of Teenage Drama Queen James Comey, a man who every Democrat in Washington had publicly advocated firing – none of those things matter. What matters to the Democrats is keeping up the appearance of chaos in Washington, because they know it is literally their only hope of beating Trump in the 2020 election.

If they allow a return to normal order, this President would plow his way to a landslide victory over whichever candidate emerges from the Democrats’ field of miscreants, hacks, fake Indians, ageing punk rockers and beta-males that would rival Reagan’s thrashing of Walter Mondale in 1984. So there will be no normal order in Washington, folks. Instead, there will be 18 months of subpoenas, kangaroo courts and disgraceful displays of demagoguery, all of which will be treated seriously by the Democrat lapdogs who infest our nation’s fake news media.

There’s nothing any of us out here in Flyover Country can do about it, other than to be sure to turn out to vote for Trump in 2020, so you might as well just sit back and enjoy the spectacle.

Some of you have wondered why it is that I like to say that I never tire of typing the three glorious words “President Donald Trump.” Well, this is why. This exact thing. He has quite literally driven the entire Democrat Party stark, raving mad. Don’t misunderstand – Democrats were nuts long before Donald Trump ever thought about running for president. But in the past they felt the need to at least put up a pretense of normalcy. They weren’t anything like you and me, but they felt the need to make like they were in order to attract your votes, which is why people who were otherwise good and decent and fairly intelligent could justify voting for Democrats.

But now the mask is completely off. The pretense is gone. The Democrat Party, over just the past 30 days, has happily revealed itself to be the party of killing babies, the party of open borders, the party of socialist fascism, the party that is perfectly willing to do everything it can to protect woman abusers and guys nicknamed “CoonMan” if they hold elective office with a “D” next to their name.

It is no longer possible for good and decent people to cast their votes for Democrats. As Ronald Reagan famously said, “the time for choosing is upon us,” and there is no longer any place to hide.

Glorious.

The Beto Mania “Victory” Tour Goes On, Only Without That “Victory” Part

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Beto Mania Update:  Looking to burnish his street cred among demented Democrat voters, Irish Bob O’Rourke met with an anti-Semitic racist in New York over the weekend. Yes, friends, if you want to be the Democrat Party’s presidential nominee, you must kiss a lot of highly distasteful rings, none moreso than the many, many rings of lifelong race-baiter and perennial MSNBC host Al Sharpton.

Sharpton became just the latest stop on the Irish Bob “I’m Ready Even Though I’m a Loooooooser” victory tour of grand Democrat Poobahs and big Muckety-Mucks as he preps the January announcement of his candidacy.

He already met with America’s Worst Mistake (Barack Hussein Obama) a few weeks ago, and now Sharpton. We can only wait with bated breath to see who will be the next stop on the tour: Will it be Louis Farrakhan? How about prominent Democrat fundraising specialist Harvey Weinstein?

If Irish Bob should decide that Farrakhan and Weinstein are just a tad too toxic, how about the de facto owner of the Democrat National Committee, George Soros?  I would suggest billionaires Tom Steyer – the “environmentalist” who made his fortune investing in coal – or media mogul Mike Bloomberg, but hey, they’re both planning to mount their own campaigns. So reaching out to them might be a little uncomfortable for all involved.

Of course, if Irish Bob really wants sound advice on how to rig, er, “win” the Democrat nomination, he could just travel on up to Chappaqua and have a sit down with the Fainting Felon. He could butter her up by bringing a bag filled with $250,000 in cash as a “contribution” to her “foundation”, two cases of vodka and maybe also bring along a couple of nice hospital gowns to add to her speaking tour on-stage wardrobe.

If it all sounds a little unsavory and demeaning, well, these are Democrats we’re talking about here, not normal people.

Paris Burning Update:

French boy President Emanuel Macron made a televised speech in which he blamed the current civil unrest in his country on 40 years of national “malaise.” So, he’s apparently transitioning from the second coming of Marie Antoinette into the second coming of Jimmy Carter. Neither one is a very good look, is it? At least Carter managed to avoid having his head chopped off, so there is that.

In his speech, the child President made a series of profound statements, such as:

“When violence is unleashed, freedom ends.”

“I take my share of responsibility.”

“I might have hurt people with my words.” and the coup de gras…

“I would ask all employers who can, pay an end-of-year bonus to their employees.”

Oh, yeah, that’ll work.

This guy is hopeless.

Speaking of hopeless, (quoting the late, great Hans Gruber)”I give you the F…B…I.” – During the course of his congressional testimony last week, former FBI Director and current Teenage Drama Queen James Comey used the phrases “I don’t know,” “I don’t remember,” “I can’t recall” or some variance thereof 245 times, which is even more than Barack Obama generally refers to himself in the first person in an hour-long speech.

In other words, it’s a lot. A lot to not remember, recall or know for a guy who spent years heading up what used to be the nation’s premier law enforcement agency but is now an anti-American tool for anti-American political interests.

Writing at the Wall Street Journal on Monday, James Freeman compiled a terrific piece detailing some of the many amazing things Comey, in his job as FBI Director, claims not to have known.  Among those are:

  • The FBI’s process for initiating a counterintelligence investigation;
  • Who initiated the FBI’s 2016 counterintelligence investigation targeting the Trump Campaign;
  • Who Christopher Steele is;
  • That Christopher Steele worked for Fusion GPS;
  • The fact that the Clinton Campaign funded the fake “Trump Dossier”, which was compiled by Steele through Fusion GPS;
  • The fact that the “Trump Dossier” was unverified when it was used by his agency as the basis for obtaining multiple FISA warrants to spy on the Trump Campaign, Trump Transition, and Trump Administration;

and on, and on, and on. In other words, just another day for the nation’s most despicable Deep State skunk.

Go read Freeman’s piece – it’s well worth your time.

Wellllllll, you know, that’s a very, very good question.:

Jerry Nadler may not be worried about this, but dozens of his colleagues probably are. Over the last 20 years, more than 260 settlements totaling $17 million have been paid out of a congressional slush fund – at taxpayer expense – to keep members of congress out of hot water of one form or another.  Many of those settlements were to dispose of complaints involving sexual harassment.

Isn’t that “hush money?” If not, what is the distinction? After all, when one of these suits has been settled, the person filing the complaint has been required to sign a non-disclosure agreement in order to get his or her money, exactly the same process Donald Trump allegedly engaged in with the playmate and the porn star. So, if it’s an impeachable offense when then-private citizen Donald Trump supposedly did it, why isn’t it an impeachable offense when a sitting member of congress does it?

So many questions, so few answers coming from our fake news media and its Democrat masters.

That is all.

Get Ready for the Coming Impeachment of Donald J. Trump

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Mueller is “closing in” – on what, no one seems able to say. – Last week was the week when Robert Mueller started “closing in”. That’s what everyone in our fake news media kept telling us, anyway, so it must be true, right? Well…ok.

Supposedly, if all the talking heads on CNN and MSNBC are to be believed – which they most certainly are not – the sentencing memo related to Michael Cohen and the court filing in Mueller’s case against Paul Manafort contain all sorts of damaging allegations related to President Donald Trump. They are, in fake media parlance, the smoking guns that, for the 10,457th time over the last 3 and a half years, spell the “beginning of the end for Donald Trump.”

All this impeachment giddiness had bug-eyed Adam Schiff talking about President trump serving prison time on “Face the Nation” and despicable Jerrold Nadler promising to shut down all investigation into Democrat wrongdoing during 2016 when he takes control of the House Judiciary Committee come January. It was like Democrat Party Mardi Gras all weekend.

The problem for the Democrats is, last week’s events don’t really mean what they want us all to believe they did. The Cohen sentencing memo, filed by the Justice Department’s Southern District of New York (SDNY), is all about campaign finance and playmates and porn stars and hush money supposedly paid to them during the 2016 campaign. The same attorneys in the SDNY who refused to prosecute Barack Obama for more than $2 million in illegal campaign contributions taken in by his 2012 campaign are now supposedly going to indict a sitting president for $280,000 in payments that can only be classified as “campaign contributions” via very tortured legal logic.

The SDNY attorneys face several problems here, chief among them being that Justice Department rules dictate that no sitting president can be indicted while he’s in office. D’oh!

Problem number two is that, even if these hush money payments can be classified as campaign contributions, the Candidate himself has the ability to contribute an unlimited amount of money to his own campaign. The U.S. Attorneys suddenly concerned about the “sanctity” of campaign finance rules say he failed to report those “contributions,” which would be a technical violation supposedly committed by a candidate who did not even know they WERE contributions.

You’re going to send a sitting POTUS to jail for that? Really?  Good luck with that.

Problem number three is that, if Donald Trump is re-elected to a second term, the 5-year statute of limitations on campaign finance violations will have expired in 2021, 3 years before he leaves office.

Now, will the craven Democrats in the House of Representatives try to use the SDNY’s tortured logic as a reason to impeach President Trump? Sure, they will, but in doing so they will have to explain why this is an impeachable offense but Obama’s massive violations were not. Good luck with that, too.

The Manafort filing is just another Big Bag of Mueller Nothing, the kind of which we have seen in myriad leaks and filings and ham sandwich indictments from his office for more than 18 months now. Nothing about the “collusion” fantasy, nothing supporting any potential charge of obstruction of justice, nothing supporting anything remotely related to what Mueller was supposed to be looking into. But it did provide a lot of fodder for talking head panels on CNN and MSNBC to assassinate the President’s character and argue for impeachment, which is exactly what it was intended to do.

There is no doubt that President Trump is a man of low moral character, especially when it comes to his conduct in his married life. There is also no doubt that pretty much everyone who voted for Candidate Trump was well aware of this when they voted for him. After two full years of screaming first about their “Russia Collusion” fantasy and then about their “obstruction of justice” fantasy, the Democrats and our fake news media are going to try to force Mr. Trump from office because he might have, maybe, sort of, potentially violated campaign finance laws to cover up affairs.

Make no mistake about it, there will be impeachment hearings beginning early next year, for the simple reason that the Democrat Party stands for nothing else at the moment. The Party’s candidates did not campaign on any policy agenda this year, other than doing nothing more to change the failed Obamacare law and doing nothing to change our failed immigration system. The Democrats have always been really big on doubling down on abject failure, after all.

So, that’s what the next two years of American history are going to be – a long, painful slog in which the Democrats and their fake news media agents do pretty much nothing but try to reverse the results of the 2016 presidential election. There will be no major legislation passed through congress, which is fine with me, given that about 90% of the un-American legacy of Barack Obama has already been done away with in one form or another.

There will be no real budget bills, as the nation goes back to the decade of Harry Reid, in which the government was funded by an ongoing series of continuing resolutions. There will be no more tax cuts – or significant tax increases – no real efforts to reform immigration or healthcare or climate regulations or anything else at the federal level as the Democrat House and Republican Senate play a 24-month game of policy chicken and do little other than raise money for the 2020 campaign.

At some point – probably mid-to-late-2019 – after a seemingly endless series of nationally-televised impeachment hearings by multiple House committees chaired by despicable creeps like New York’s Jerrold Nadler, the Democrats in the House will successfully “impeach” President Trump in a party line vote. Some time after that, the Republicans in the Senate will refuse to remove the President from office, again on a purely party line vote.

It will be an instant replay of 1999, only with the party roles reversed. Then the election campaigns will gear up and dominate the rest of 2019 and all of 2020, as the voters decide who to punish for the two-year fiasco.

It’s key to remember that, after impeaching Bill Clinton in 1999, the Republican Party paid dearly at the polls in 2000, losing their six-year House majority in the process. With President Trump’s public approval ratings holding stubbornly firm at pretty high levels for a president at this point in his first term in office, the Democrats pursue this impeachment strategy at their own risk.

And pursue it they will.  Because they are otherwise bankrupt as a Party.

That is all.
