Today’s Campaign Update
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)
Here’s what 40 years of Democrats refusing to address the state’s water supply have done for California… – “Californians May Have to Choose Between Showers and Laundry with New 55-Gallon Water Limit.” That’s the headline of a PJ Media story detailing the looming impacts of two new bills just signed into law by California Governor Jerry Brown, the provisions of which would impose draconian new water conservation measures on ordinary Californians, while naturally also providing exemptions for all the state’s wealthy, who are overwhelmingly white Democrats like Nancy Pelosi, Dianne Feinstein and Gov. Brown.
The bills would impose fines of up to $10,000 per day for violators, while at the same time providing exemptions for swimming pools, spas and those ever-popular “water features” in all the state’s 6-figure swimming pools. This is the Democrat Party in action, folks, and they want to bring this kind of elitist discrimination to the rest of the country. Don’t kid yourselves otherwise.
Tired of all this Winning yet? Part I – Tuesday was a really lousy day for the Democrats, with voter enthusiasm and turnout down in Democrat primaries and up in GOP races all over the country. With the fake news media-promoted “Blue Wave” in danger of fading from memory, the news fakers at the raging dumpster fire that is NBC News felt the need to issue a fake poll purporting to show the Democrats holding a 10 point lead once again in the congressional generic ballot measure.
As I chronicled during the 2016 campaign, this is a tactic that NBC and ABC seemed be tag-teaming during the general election, issuing some wild outlier poll anytime the RealClearPolitics polling average between the Pantsuit Princess and Donald Trump became uncomfortably close. Guess this week was NBC’s turn. It’s truly pathetic, but its what these people do.
Tired of all this Winning yet? Part II – Perhaps the most gratifying aspect of Tuesdays results in California came in the fact that almost all of the George Soros-backed district attorney candidates got their evil heads handed to them. Soros has been pouring tens of millions of dollars into local district attorney races all over the country this year in an attempt to put soft-on-crime prosecutors in place in his never-ending efforts to completely destroy American society.
It’s always a great day for America when Soros has a bad day.
And this time he really, really means it! Promise. Really. Seriously, he isn’t kidding this time. You betcha. – DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz sent a letter to the House Oversight Committee that he will be releasing his report on the FBI’s fake investigation into the Pantsuit Princess’s email scandal on June 14. He has also agreed to appear before that committee to testify on June 18.
Guess what? June 14 also happens to be Donald J. Trump’s 72nd birthday. Happy birthday to you!
Wait, what? Jeff Sessions is still alive and on the job? Who knew? – The Justice Department announced on Thursday the indictment of one James A. Wolfe, 58, who has served as the Senate Intelligence Committee’s director of security for nearly three decades, for allegedly making “false statements to agents in December about his contacts with three reporters.” Investigators are looking into allegations that Wolfe leaked classified information to his girlfriend, a reporter who works for…wait for it…can you guess?…the New York Times! Wow, that’s a shocker, right?
Ok, it was a 50/50 shot – the only other logical guess would have been the Washington Post, but the Times had a leg up on the competition for this particular criminal endeavor. The Senate Intel Committee is that execrable bunch led by deep state Republican Richard Burr and ranking Democrat Mark Warner. The roster includes a veritable who’s who of deep state Rs and Ds including Dianne Feinstein, Marco Rubio, Roy Blount, Angus King and Kamala Harris.
So, it’s only natural that the senior staffer thought to be leaking national security secrets to some leftwing NYTimes reporter named Ali Watkins – whose leftist resume’ sports previous stops at places like Buzzfeed, Politico and McClatchy News – works for this specific committee. Remember, this is the same committee that gave us Daniel Jones, the former Feinstein shill who in late 2017 raised $50 million from Democrat donors to pay Christopher Steele and Fusion GPS to start dummying up a second fake Trump Dossier. No word which NYTimes or WaPo reporter Jones is dating, but it’s apparently a safe bet there is one.
Oh, and guess what? CNN reported last night that Mr. Jones is also now the subject of a DOJ investigation for alleged leaks of classified information. Of course, it is CNN, so that report could turn out to be hilariously fake, but at this point it’s all the information we have.
Anyway, as a part of the investigation into Mr. Wolfe, Justice Department lawyers “notified Watkins on Feb. 13 that the DOJ had obtained information on her Google email accounts and Verizon phone, the Times reported. The seized records spanned years before and after Watkins joined the Times in 2017 to cover federal law enforcement.” The Times and the rest of the fake news media is in a big uproar about this tactic this morning. Funny, they didn’t seem to care much when the Obama DOJ did that and far, far worse to Fox News reporter James Rosen and the dogged Sharryl Atkisson, who then worked for CBS.
But now that a Republican is in the White House, suddenly the fake news media gives a damn about the first amendment. Funny how that works, huh?
But here’s the thing about that first amendment deal: It is there to protect a free and independent press so it can serve as the public’s watchdog. It was not intended to protect a bunch of hyper-partisan hacks who work every day to negatively impact the national security of the United States.
News organs that refuse to live up to that responsibility deserve what they get.
Just another day in Jeff Sessions Lives! America.
That is all.
