Brace Yourselves, Because this Democrat Clown Show has Just Begun

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

Creepy Joe crashing, Mayor Pete plummeting, the Incredible Shrinking Beto, and more.:  The fallout in the various polls from last week’s Democrat debates has been fast, fierce and entirely predictable. The winners and losers of those debates were obvious, at least in terms of how the demented Democrat voter base would react. As usual, the fake news media and their “experts” and “analysts” had little clue about any of that.

Take Mayor Pete Buttigieg as a great example. All the “expert” talking heads at CNN and MSNBC and Fox ooohed and ahhhed about his simple admission that “I couldn’t get it done” when asked why he’s been unable to do a single damn thing to ease the seething racial tensions in South Bend during his seven long years as Mayor. All the smart people smiled and declared the fake news media’s latest Democrat date as one of the “clear winners” of the second night’s debate. The same pundits and “experts” all marveled again on Friday as Mayor Pete announced that his campaign raised about $24 million during the second quarter of the year, apparently forgetting that President Donald Trump raised that amount in the first 24 hours of his campaign.

We have now had four new polls come out in the wake of the debates (The Hill/HarrisX, Politico/Morning Consult, CNN and Quinnipiac), and Mayor Pete has lost ground from his prior 7% support level in each and every one of them. He’s at a pitiful 4% in the most current poll, from Quinnipiac, and hilariously receives … wait for it … ZERO percent support from Black voters.

Ouch.

Then there’s the Incredible Shrinking Beto, the fake news media’s former fave Democrat date, Irish Bob O’Rourke. Irish Bob was already sucking wind going into the debates, sitting at an average of about 4% support in the various polls. In the four polls released this week, he comes in at 4, 3, 2, and 1. The man is headed to 0 with a bullet.

The goofy and insufferable ex-Texas congressman compounded his horrific debate performance by going to Juarez, Mexico (hey, if you can’t attract support in America, try another country!) the next day and announcing that all these illegal aliens from central America have no choice but to get paid by Soros operatives to travel to the U.S. because of … wait for it … CLIMATE CHANGE. Because of course that’s what he said. Turns out not even most incredibly gullible Democrat voters who love to be lied to are buying into that particular whopper.

I’ve been telling y’all that the once-impressive polling lead held by America’s Unfrozen Caveman Senator would be gone by October. Well, after his wooden, confused and feeble debate performance, that timetable has sped up considerably. Unless some unforeseen sequence of events intervenes, Creepy Uncle Joe will be lucky to lead in any of these polls, real or fake, come late August. In the two most-current of those four polls, CNN and Quinnipiac, his support level that hovered in the mid-40s just two months ago is now down to 22%.

Indeed, after his terrible exchange with Kamala Harris during the debate, Biden finds himself virtually tied with the opportunistic California Senator in Quinnipiac, leading her by just 22% – 20%.  Yikes.

What about Bernie Sanders, you ask? Well, The Commie appears to be on the same path as Irish Bob, albeit with still-higher numbers. In the four polls in question, his numbers have come in at 19, 15, 14, and 13. The old Bolshevik apparently thought it would be a great idea to not prepare for this first debate, and just parrot the same answers he’d given during his debates with the Fainting Felon four years ago. Amazingly, Democrat voters seem to be growing weary of his tiresome Marxist messaging, something no one could have ever possibly predicted, including yours truly.  Go figure.

I also seem to have missed on my prediction that Fauxcahontas would get a boost from being seated at the kiddie table in the first debate with a bunch of people who all were polling at 4% or less. Her numbers are still hovering around 12%, which is right where her average was before the debate took place. I have long suspected that Lieawatha is going to have the same problem experienced by the Coughing Crook, i.e., that the more public exposure she gets, the less the public is going to like her. That dynamic could be kicking in here.

Looking around, it does not appear that any of the myriad other candidates in the race got any sort of real bounce out of the debates. The fake news media has now figured out that Julian Castro is the only actual, real Hispanic candidate and is now doing its best to give him a boost with gobs of free air time, but that is not resulting thus far in any noticeable movement in his numbers. Conversely, the media is still doing everything it can to ignore the only actual interesting people in the race – Tulsi Gabbard, Andrew Yang and Marianne Williamson – no doubt adhering to their marching orders from the DNC, which hates them all and wants them out of the race as soon as possible.

The Democrat Party, the party of “diversity,” cannot tolerate anything resembling real diversity of thought in its presidential race, after all.

At the end of the day, the control being exerted by the DNC, in concert with its toadies in the media, is why we see this race rapidly boiling down to what will become a long, tough slog involving Creepy Uncle Joe, The Commie, Kamala, and Fauxcahontas, with Mayor Pete and Cory Booker continuing to hang around yapping at everyone’s heels so long as their money holds out.

If you think this clown show you’ve witnessed thus far is unimpressive, well, you are not alone. You can bet that the Pantsuit Princess is sitting up in Chappaqua, grinning her evil grin as she sips her third chardonnay of the morning, day-dreaming about how she will waltz into next year’s hung convention and present herself as the Party’s savior yet again.

Stranger things have happened, and stranger things will happen again before this is all over.

That is all.

Kamala Harris Became a Political Powerhouse in Debate #2

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

Kamala Harris became a serious contender for the Democrat nomination last night. The Willie Brown paramour from California won the debate by landing a massive body blow on front-runner Joe Biden, putting her star on the rise in the race and accelerating Biden’s inevitable fall.

Watch this clip – it is devastating for Biden:

“It’s a mis-charicteration (sic)” are the first words out of our nation’s Unfrozen Caveman Senator’s mouth. He looks like one of the old Democrat segregationists he “got stuff done” with back in the 1970s, an age that most Democrat voters cannot even remotely relate to. He sounds old, he sounds programmed, everything he talks about is stuff that happened damn near half a century ago.

And then, he is so shaky, so unsure of himself, so out of canned talking points, that he becomes the first person in the history of presidential debates to …wait for it … cut himself off.

That boy done. And Kamala is off to the races. That clip getting played constantly on all the cable channels and all the social media platforms will add 5 points to her polling support in a week, maybe more.

The “Look at Me ‘Cuz I’m So Weird” award goes without any question at all to goofball author Marianne Williamson, who, when asked what her first priority upon assuming the presidency would be, actually said this:

“My first call is to the prime minister of New Zealand, who said that her goal is to make New Zealand the place where it’s the best place in the world for a child to grow up,” said Williamson. “I would tell her, ’Girlfriend, you are so wrong!”

Williamson is so overwhelmingly weird that even the weirdos at the Huffington Post went off on her performance this morning. That’s weird.

Her closing statement capped off a night of weirdness, probably capping off her vanity project campaign for good, as the DNC will now instruct their media toadies to keep her off the air and out of future debates:

Honestly, I can’t tell if she was threatening to defeat the President in next year’s general election or propositioning him. All conservatives should immediately contribute money to her campaign to ensure she is able to stay in this race, just as a practical joke.

The embarrassing MSNBC/NBC moderators did their best to ignore Williamson, allowing her less than 5 minutes of time to air her her grievances against New Zealand and praise her spirit guides, but if you’re Andrew Yang, you’re thinking “damn, sure wish I’d have gotten that extra two minutes!” this morning. Yang, the only actual semi-interesting person on that stage last night, the guy who campaigns on his claim to have a million ideas, was only given 2:58 to express them by the DNC/fake media cabal desperately hoping to kill him off before he can catch any fire in the race.

By comparison, Biden got 13:19 to talk about all the great stuff he did during the Nixon Administration, Harris got 12:16, Mayor Pete was awarded 11:21 for being the bestest hall monitor in the field, and the old Commie got 10:58 to spout all of his Stalinist nostrums.

Yang did get the consolation prize by winning the Drudge insta-poll following the debate. Yang pulled in over 28% of the vote in that measure, probably because his paltry time speaking ended up irritating fewer Americans than everyone else. Hilariously, Williamson actually came in third in that poll, pulling over 12% support, while Kamala Harris was second at 17%.

Who had the worst night? Other than Biden, you’d have to point to John Hickenlooper, Kirsten Gillibrand, Michael Bennett and Eric Swalwell, all of whom were the same non-factors in the debate that they’ve been thus far in the campaign. You can just stick a fork in all of ’em.

The Commie was the Commie, sounding and looking exactly as he sounded and looked in the 2016 race with the Pantsuit Princess. Being the only outright Commie in that race, he was able to give the Fainting Felon a race for her money. His problem this time, though, is that there are a ton of other outright commies in the race, and they’re really cutting into his support base.

Sanders spent his time pounding on every boogeyman imaginable, as Commies always do: The Medical industry, drug makers, corporate bigwigs in general, ICE, the Border Patrol, President Trump, Climate Change, conservative judges, senate Republicans – all of those handy boogeymen and more enjoyed their time in last night’s Bolshevik spotlight. He’s a tiresome old hack trading on nothing but fear and empty promises, which of course is why depraved Democrat voters love him.

Last night didn’t harm him, but it didn’t do him any good, either. Expect him to fall in the polls over the next couple of weeks, and expect both Fauxcahontas and Harris to pass him.

Hey, what about Mayor Pete? Last night was set up by the DNC and NBC to be his breakout moment, that jumpstart that would move his campaign into the next gear. He did fine in the debate by all accounts, but none of the media coverage is focused on him this morning.

And Buttigieg’s biggest problem comes in the only measure that really matters in these debates: Optics. Standing there on that stage next to the much, much taller Unfrozen Caveman Senator, Mayor Pete just looked like a high school sophomore trying to debate the school principal. After his awful weekend back in South Bend, Buttigieg needed to have a moment last night in which he showed real authority and empathy, especially for African Americans, in order to break out of that Optics trap.

He didn’t do that. Thus, his campaign, which had already stagnated in the 6-7% support level in the various polls, will continue to stagnate. You may even see his level of support begin to slowly drop, as frustrated potential supporters turn their heads to Kamala and Fauxcahontas.

So, here are the winners and losers from the Second Debate:

Winners:

Kamala Harris, and it isn’t close

Losers:

Everyone else

This race is shaking out very quickly, despite the crowded field. Now that she’s had her breakout moment, Kamala Harris is going to be hard, hard, hard for the other candidates to take down.

Think about it: How’s it going to look to identity-politics-oriented Democrats when two old, gray-haired white guys start going after the lone woman of color in the field? Exactly. So you won’t see them do that. And if they can’t go after her, how are they going to stop her?

Good question. Glad I don’t have to answer it.

That is all.

Tonight is Fauxcahontas Fest for the Democrats

Today’s Campaign Update, Part II
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Last week, we talked about the fact that the Democrat Party leaders don’t do anything by chanceThe contention by the DNC that the lineup for the two debate panels tonight and tomorrow night were determined by drawing names out of a hat at random is transparently absurd. The thought that this party, which does everything it does and says everything its people say based on polling and focus groups would leave such a crucial part of its campaign to oust Donald Trump to chance is laughable.

As we pointed out in that June 15 piece, the two panels have been clearly constructed to give the advantage to Elizabeth Warren (tonight) and Pete Buttigieg (tomorrow), who together had become the party’s dream ticket before Buttigieg’s horrible two days back in South Bend over the weekend. The party leaders are probably regretting going out on that particular limb for Mayor Pete now that his intractable problems with black voters have become a national story.

But boy, are they going all-in for Fauxcahontas. Today, we learned that Little Big Moneywaster will not just be the only leading candidate on tonight’s stage, but she will actually be positioned in the dead center of the field. This time, though, party spokespeople don’t expect you to believe that is all purely by chance. Here is how that all works, as explained by the news-fakers at NBC:

NBC on Tuesday announced the candidate positions on the stage for the two-night event on June 26 and 27, and it will feature the contenders who’ve been leading in the polls in the middle of the stage at the Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts.

That means on Night One, Sen. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts and former Rep. Beto O’Rourke of Texas will be in the middle, while Night Two will feature former Vice President Biden and Sanders, the Vermont senator, standing side-by-side at center stage.

Thus, Little Big Mouth Always Running gets to dominate the stage next to Irish Bob O’Rourke, whose own campaign has imploded to the point that he polled just 1% in the most recent Emerson poll, and a slightly better 3% in the new YouGov poll out this morning.

The staging could not be more advantageous for Lieawatha: Standing next to the awkward, arm-waving goofball from El Paso, she is going to look positively dignified by comparison.

After Warren gets to stand out on a kiddie stage with no one polling at better than 3%, Joe Biden and The Commie have to face off while standing right next to one another. This picture of two old, gray-haired, pastly-white Swamp rats with a combined age of 153 (that is not a typo) in the center of the stage is not going to be a good look at all for them, or for a Party that likes to think of itself as the champion of minorities and younger generations.

The idea there was initially to give Mayor Pete, age 37, a chance to look like a shining light of youth  by comparison and to also present himself as the reasonable adult in the room as the nation’s leading Commie and Unfrozen Caveman Senator went after each other. But that all went to hell when Buttigieg’s attempt to go back home and actually try to do his day job crashed up on the shoals of a group of Black Lives Matter protesters.

Now, that second debate night is looking more like a golden opportunity for Kamala Harris to catch lightning in a bottle, if she’s capable. We’ll see.

But tonight, it’s all about the party and the media’s effort to promote Fauxcahontas, the party’s most transparent fraud and pathological liar, as their new favored candidate. Given the sorry nature of the competition, and the way Democrat voters love to be lied to, it’s almost certain to work.

That is all.

The Week in Review: Yet Another Lost Week for the Democrats

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

Oh, so they have to lie, then? – The week started with former Colorado Governor and current hopeless presidential candidate John Hickenlooper becoming so distraught about his party’s race to the farthest extent of the far, far, far, far left that he felt the need to tell an interviewer that “I feel strongly that Democrats have to draw a clear line and say, ‘We are not socialists.'” Not a good look, Dems.

Sunday also saw yet another smear strategy against President Donald Trump die an ugly death. Trump had thrown the entire Democrat/Media propaganda complex into a four-day fit of apoplexy on June 13 when he told the little Clinton toady George Stephanolpoulous that he “would probably listen” if someone from another country called and said he had damaging information about a political opponent. Sensing an opportunity to damage the President, the Democrats and their media stooges spent the next 96 hours trying to convince Americans that that statement was somehow proof that he had personally worked with Putin to fix the 2016 election.

What it all really did was remind everyone that a) Robert Mueller had mounted a 2-year Witch Hunt trying to find evidence that such a thing had happened and failed to come up with anything and b) that the Clinton Campaign had laundered $11 million through the DNC, a law firm and a PR firm to pay foreign agents, mostly from Russia, to try to dig up dirt on her opponent. Apparently the Democrats got some really bad polling information on this smear Sunday afternoon, because the that particular narrative completely disappeared from the nation’s airwaves after about 4:00 p.m. that day, which must have been when the memo went out to everyone. Because that is what they do.

Image may contain: 1 person, sitting and text

Monday dawned with great news from Mexico, news that reminded everyone of another utterly failed Democrat/media narrative, which held that the President’s threat to impose tariffs on the failed state to the south would produce no results. We found out Monday that it was producing all sorts of great results in slowing the flow of illegals up from Central America, so the media immediately changed the subject. Because that, again, is what they do.

As the Democrat Clown Car of Mediocrities rolled out their presidential campaign messages to “crowds” of literally dozens of supporters – Eric Swalwell drew exactly 18 for a gun control rally on Monday –  Tuesday gave us clip after clip of thousands of Trump supporters spending as much as 40 hours in line and actually holding tailgate parties awaiting the President’s formal campaign kickoff announcement in Orlando, Florida.

Of course, none of the broadcast networks carried the event, something they had always done for previous incumbents announcing their re-election campaigns, and the petulant creeps at CNN cut away after the President led the crowd in a chant of “CNN sucks!” Because that, yet again, is what they do.

Tuesday also gave us a social media clip of a half-drunk de facto Speaker of the House Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez telling her brain dead fans that the border detention centers being used to temporarily house illegal aliens while their bogus asylum claims are being processed are exactly the same thing as Hitler slaughtering 6 million Jews in concentration camps. As if to amplify their Party’s ongoing lurch to disgusting antisemitism, not a single Democrat leader could summon the intellectual honesty to disavow AOC’s despicable remarks.

By Wednesday, Creepy Uncle Joe Biden, the nation’s Unfrozen Caveman Senator, was being blasted by his fellow presidential candidates for bragging about how he used to get stuff done in the senate by paling around with all those old segregationists of the 1970s. The media let that narrative go on for two solid days before they suddenly realized that all it was doing was reminding everyone that all those segregationists were in fact members of the Democrat Party. Ooopsie.

Also on Wednesday, we found out that the Broadway play about Slick Willie and the Fainting Felon, “Hillary and Clinton”, was shutting down its run early due to … wait for it … low ticket sales. Interestingly, this is the same reason why Slick and the Pantsuit Princess shut down their nationwide tour of evening events months ahead of time. There’s a message in all of this somewhere… wonder what is might be?

Thursday brought us film of Democrat hero Angela Merkel shaking uncontrollably, like Beto O’Rourke giving a campaign speech, as she stood for the German national anthem at a public event. If Merkel were a member of America’s Democrat Party, she’d be a part of its youth movement.

The Democrats’ whole “fossil fuels cause global warming” narrative took a big hit the same day when Canada’s child leader Justin Trudeau declared a “climate emergency” in one breath, and then approved a major oil pipeline in his next. I swear I don’t make this stuff up – who could?

The week got even worse for the anti-American party known as the Democrats when, after it was revealed that Iran had shot down an unmanned U.S. drone flying in international air space, each and every member of the Democrat Party knee-jerked to parroting the Iranian Mullahs’ talking points. Here is California Democrat Jackie Speier, for example:

By Friday, it became obvious that while everyone, Democrats and Republicans alike, was knee-jerking to their favorite talking points, President Trump was the lone adult in the room, speaking in measured tones about the situation and carefully considering all of his options instead of taking action that would end up with innocent people dying.

On that same day we found out that the hacks at USA Today were sitting on polling results showing the President with a 49% public approval rating, the highest he has ever attained in that particular poll. Because that, one more time, is what those people do.

Oh, yeah, it was also Friday when we discovered that Creepy Uncle Joe’s creepy son, Hunter Biden, had fathered a child with a 25 year-old Arkansas woman while he was engaged in an affair with his late brother’s widow, and had refused to take responsibility for the child. My goodness.

The Democrats in the House continued their party’s ongoing War on Women – and on little girls – when they unanimously passed a bill that would force school girls to compete with trans-genders born as males in sporting events. Think about that for a second: The vote was unanimous. Not a single Democrat representative sees anything unfair in this. Unreal.

To close out Friday, candidate Swalwell promised that, as his first act upon taking office, he would summarily fire President Trump’s son-in-law, Jared Kushner. This is just one of many problematic promises the unintentionally-hilarious Swalwell keeps making, given that 1) Kushner is not actually on the government payroll, and 2) by the time a “President Swalwell” took office – an event that will thankfully never happen – Kushner would have already been long-gone away from Washington in any event.

The Democrat/media propaganda complex closed out its lost week by pounding the obviously false story shamefully published in New York Magazine, that, while married to Marla Maples, one of the most beautiful women on the face of the earth 25 years ago, Donald Trump was out raping homely, 52 year-old matrons.

The claim is being made by a pathetic wretch who is hawking a book, and is so blatantly false that even some mainstream media outlets have refused to join in the narrative, a fact that caused Democrat water-boy Chris Hayes to whine on Twitter:

You just really cannot make this stuff up, folks.

And thus, another completely lost week for the Democrats goes into the books.  Couldn’t happen to a more deserving bunch of people.

That is all.

Trump Will do the Right Thing for America in Response to Iran

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

Huh. Guess he must have been hanging out with Bill Clinton. – Joe Biden’s wayward son, Hunter Biden, was sued yesterday by a 28 year-old woman in Arkansas for refusing to accept responsibility for the son he allegedly fathered with her. This is not a case of ancient history coming back to haunt him, either, as the child is just 10 months old. Even more disgustingly, the fathering of the child came during a time when the horndog Hunter was involved in a relationship with the widow of his late brother, Beau Biden.

Holy cow.

The lawsuit comes at a rather inconvenient time for Hunter, who became fabulously wealthy while his Pop was selling his influence as Vice President – no doubt emulating the Hillary Clinton game plan – as Hunter just recently got married, but to yet another woman named Melissa Cohen.

A quick Google search indicates this scandalous news – which would justifiably be above-the-fold, massive headlines were it about the son of any Republican – was not reported by the New York Times, the Washington Post, CNN, MSNBC, NBC, ABC 0r CBS.  Imagine that.

Tired of all this WINNING yet? – The S&P 500 closed at yet another all-time high on Thursday. Donald Trump says, “you’re welcome.”

Speaking of President Donald Trump, be glad he’s in that office. – The Pantsuit Princess, who famously cackled and bragged about taking out Mohamar Gadaffi (and thus throwing Libya into a seemingly endless civil war), would have been getting our military personnel killed in yet another Middle East war with Iran long ago, and would still have us fiddling around doing nothing much effective with ISIS in Syria.

Lindsey Graham is no different. His years of following John McCain around like a little puppy dog come out every time anyone in the Middle East so much as shouts boo!, so yesterday’s downing of a U.S. drone by Iran’s radical Islamic government threw Bad Lindsey into a fit of McCain-like war-mongering. Here’s what he told reporters in an impromptu press gaggle yesterday:

“My ‘red line’ is if there’s any more disruption of shipping in the Strait of Hormuz that’s linked to Iran,” the South Carolina Republican said. “Take out their navy, bomb their refineries if there’s any more attacks on American interests.”

Oh. Well, hey, at least he didn’t go where McCain always went, and recommend putting 200,000 or more U.S. soldiers on the ground:

“Go after Iran so that they’ll…feel pain,” he continued. “I’m not talking about invading Iran, I’m not talking about a land invasion. If they go back into the enrichment business at a level that would lead to a nuclear weapon, we need to sit down with Israel and other allies and come up with a way to stop it.”

Glad he’s not talking about McCain’s longed-for ground invasion, but he is talking about putting our fighter and bomber pilots at great risk, given that Iran just proved its air defenses can shoot down a drone that typically operates at 60,000 feet. Are we really all ready to see Americans start coming back home from that god-forsaken part of the world in body bags again? Isn’t it enough that we still see this happen occasionally due to our continued presence in the sh*thole country that is Afghanistan after 18 long years?

Donald Trump was not elected to get us involved in more wars – he was elected to end the ones he inherited from the war-mongering 16 years that preceded his Inauguration. When he took office, President Trump inherited a situation in which the U.S. military was actively involved in no fewer than seven different civil wars across the Middle East and Africa. Although we still remain in Afghanistan with a diminished presence, he has otherwise greatly reduced U.S. involvement, destroying ISIS in Syria before dramatically reducing our presence in that unalterable sh*thole as well.

Despite the constant drumbeat by our fake news media that he is somehow himself a “war-monger”, the truth is that Trump’s conduct of foreign affairs has dramatically scaled back international tensions all over the world. There is no magic to this – this is what has always happened whenever a Republican president has projected U.S. policy from a position of strength.

Where the Coughing Crooks of the world delight in throwing entire nations into interminable chaos with ill-advised (and illegal) assassinations, and neo-cons like Graham invariably knee-jerk to screaming for bombing runs, the truth is that President Trump has an array of options for responding to Iran’s latest provocation that do not involve getting our own people killed. Thankfully, while every craven politician in both parties knee-jerks to inflammatory talking points, the President is calmly taking the time to consider all of his options before jumping to a response.

Trump may ultimately decide that taking out some Iranian refineries and gunships is the appropriate response here, but everyone screaming for that particular escalation of the conflict must understand that that will inevitably result in a spike in oil prices, which will in turn drive up gasoline prices at the pump. The price for crude has already jumped up 10% this week – are you really ready for another 20% or even more?

Or maybe the President might decide to cool the rhetoric – which he was already doing yesterday, if you were paying attention – and authorize the conduct of cyber-attacks on Iran’s digital infrastructure, which could be done completely behind the scenes and could be devastating to the Mullahs’ regime.

What President Trump is not going to do is be bullied by aggressive advisors or Lindsey Graham or Chuck Schumer or anyone else into sending our armed forces into harm’s way unless he is 100% certain that he doesn’t really have another choice. If he does choose that route, you should expect his response to be disproportionately large and extremely effective.

Whatever action he takes, you can be sure he will take it because it is best for America. Because that is what he was elected to do, and this President, unlike his recent predecessors, keeps his promises.

That is all.

The Biden Agonistes are Just Beginning

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

Creepy Uncle Joe steps in it again. – Joe Biden’s status as the Unfrozen Caveman Senator in the Democrat presidential race took another ugly turn this week when, in a Tuesday fundraising speech in New York, Biden praised former segregationist Democrat senators he served with waaaaayyyyyy back in the ’70s like Herman Talmage and James Eastland. This naturally set off a round of shameless virtue-signaling from his white opponents and fits of moral outrage from his black opponents – Cory Booker and Kamala Harris – who have made a career of trading on identity politics.

So, what did the nation’s Creepy Uncle say that was so offensive? Here’s how the fake reporters at the AP characterize it in their piece this morning:

The controversy began at a New York fundraiser Tuesday when Biden pointed to long-dead segregationist senators James Eastland of Mississippi and Herman Talmadge of Georgia to argue that Washington functioned more smoothly a generation ago than under today’s “broken” hyperpartisanship.

“We didn’t agree on much of anything,” Biden said of the two men, who were prominent senators when Biden was elected in 1972. Biden described Talmadge as “one of the meanest guys I ever knew” and said Eastland called him “son,” though not “boy,” a reference to the racist way many whites addressed black men at the time.

Booker, Harris and all their white companions desperate to grab a share of the “black vote”, as the Democrats love to call it, rushed to condemn Biden for praising segregationists for being “civil.” But of course, the trouble with that criticism is that that part of what Biden said was actually true – the U.S. Senate of the ’70s did exhibit a remarkable level of bipartisanship and civility in addressing issues, especially when compared with the hyperpartisan crap show we see in the “world’s greatest deliberative body” today.

But if Biden’s virtue-signaling, moral outrage-expressing opponents had a lick of sense and honesty – which we know they don’t since they’re all Democrats – they’d attack him for the blatant, outright lie that truly stands out in those two AP paragraphs, which is his statement that “We didn’t agree on much of anything.”

My goodness. That took some nerve.

What was the litmus test on de-segregation when Biden took office in the senate back in 1973? Forced busing. Along with all the old Democrat segregationists in the senate at that time, like Talmadge, Eastland, Howell Heflin, Ernest Hollings, Sam Ervin and Robert Byrd, who was one of the loudest, most aggressive opponents of forced busing? If you said Joe Biden, you would be correct.

See, schools in the northeast during those years were every bit as segregated as those in the southern states. Indeed, Biden made his fierce opposition to forced busing a centerpiece of his initial campaign for the senate. It is fair to credit that position on that key issue largely for his election to the senate in the first place.

Then there was Biden’s ardent opposition to that other litmus test for helping the nation’s African American population at that time, racial quotas in hiring and school admissions, which proponents like to call “Affirmative Action.” Like his southern senate colleagues, Good ol’ Joe was dead set against those as well.

Don’t believe me? Here is what he told a Delaware reporter in 1975:

I do not buy the concept, popular in the ‘60s, which said, ‘We have suppressed the black man for 300 years and the white man is now far ahead in the race for everything our society offers. In order to even the score, we must now give the black man a head start, or even hold the white man back, to even the race.’ I don’t buy that. I don’t feel responsible for the sins of my father and grandfather. I feel responsible for what the situation is today, for the sins of my own generation. And I’ll be damned if I feel responsible to pay for what happened 300 years ago.”

Interesting quotes, huh? Especially interesting in light of yesterday’s shameful Democrat-staged hearing in the House on reparations.

Here’s the truth about Joe Biden: He agreed with the ’70s-era southern Democrat segregationists about pretty much everything, and wasn’t real shy about saying so at the time. Of course, everyone’s political views change over time, and Biden is no doubt no exception.

But this long record of publicly spouting off and all those thousands of votes he took over 36 years in the Senate are, as I keep trying tell everyone, a very big and real problem for Biden, and a big reason why he ultimately will not be the party’s nominee in 2020. It will be a long, slow death by 1,000 cuts. There are literally dozens more really bad days still to come for Biden, days when the media and his opponents will hit him with all the stupid stuff he said back in the ’70s, ’80s, ’90s and ’00s.

Even the ’10s, come to think of it, because saying stupid stuff has always been Joe Biden’s real stock in trade, and in that, he has definitely not evolved.

That is all.

Why Joe Biden Won’t be the Nominee

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

People keep telling me that I’m really going out on a limb with my all-but-guarantee that Joe Biden will not be the Democrat nominee in 2020. The truth is that that is the safest prediction I’ve made about this race.

The history of presidential politics is littered with the rotting carcasses of early favorites in contested presidential nominating battles who ended up being left behind when the actual convention rolled around.

Remember 1972 Democrat nominee Edmund Muskie? Yeah, neither do I. Well, I sort of remember Edmund Muskie, who was the party establishment’s favorite as the campaign season began, but Democrat voter base, radicalized by the hippie movement moving into adulthood and the early reports of the Watergate scandal, were looking for a much more radical alternative that year. Ultimately, the party presented closet Marxist George McGovern to the country, and an electoral slaughter of epic proportions ensued, despite the media’s best efforts to destroy Richard Nixon.

Sound familiar?

What about 1976 Democrat nominee Morris Udall, the early polling leader and establishment favorite? Or nominee Birch Bayh, who won the Iowa Caucuses? Remember them? No? Well, it turned out that Democrat voters that year weren’t in the mood to nominate some old DC swamp creature, which you are going to soon discover is a very common theme in this essay. Instead, they wanted a fresh face, and ended up saddling the country with Jimmy Carter, who at the time was the freshest face we’d ever seen.

Yeah, that didn’t work out well, did it?

Remember when early polls told us that Ted Kennedy was going to beat Carter for the nomination in 1980 after Carter’s disastrous term in office? Remember when that didn’t happen, either?

Guess who the early polling leader for the nomination in the 1984 race was? Remember how Gary Hart won that year’s nomination? No? Neither does anyone else. That year, the now-ageing hippies passed the party’s baton to old swamp  creature Walter Mondale, and the result was the largest electoral landslide loss in American history.

Ok, what about 1988 Democrat nominee Mario Cuomo? Remember him? After a raft of polls in mid-1987 showed Cuomo would be a big leader in the nominating battle, party leaders tried to recruit him to get into the race. But Cuomo, knowing the scrutiny that would bring into his shady background, refused to take up the baton.

Well, what about 1988 nominee Gary Hart, who again led all the polls once Cuomo refused to run? No? Hart might actually have prevailed in the race that year had he not dared the media to “follow me around” after allegations arose that he was having an affair. For once, the media actually did its job where a Democrat was concerned, and photos of Hart cavorting on a boat with Donna Rice were soon made public. So, we ended up with Michael Dukakis and another electoral landslide instead.

Then there’s 1992 Democrat nominee Paul Tsongas, or 1992 Democrat nominee Jerry Brown, or 1992 Democrat nominee Bob Kerrey, all of whom were leaders in early polling in the race. But then this guy Bill Clinton played the saxophone on the Johnny Carson Show, and shallow Democrat voters had their man!

In 2000, it was Al Gore all the way as the Democrat voter longed to give the country a third Clinton term. That didn’t happen, either.

Then there’s 2004 Democrat nominee John Edwards. Yet another early polling leader flame-out due to Gary Hart-like circumstances. He was succeeded by 2004 Democrat nominee Howard Dean, who surged into a polling lead late in 2003. But he came up a crapper with a third-place finish in Iowa, and the nomination ended up going to the disastrous John Kerry.

Finally, I give you 2008 Democrat nominee Hillary Clinton, the overwhelming leader in every early poll in the race, and the woman who eventually…flamed completely out after Barack Hussein Obama his own self caught fire.

Democrat voters are fickle, folks. In every cycle, the party’s leaders always try to push a favorite candidate, and that favored candidate is usually rejected. The lone exceptions to this dynamic in modern times have been Walter Mondale, Al Gore and Hillary Clinton, all loooooooooosers. In 2016, the party’s leaders went so far as to actually rig the primaries in Clinton’s favor, and Obama and his evil minions did everything they could to rig the general election in her favor, and she still lost.

The Fainting Felon’s attempt to saddle the nation with a third Obama term was a miserable failure, and now here is Joe Biden, trying to execute the exact same failed strategy four years later. But Biden’s trying to do it before a party voter base that has been radicalized to the point of insanity, and the primary voting is going to be dominated by the most radicalized among them.

Every nominating battle has its own unique set of dynamics, of course, and the party bosses have set the process up this time to encourage a hung convention at which they will ultimately get to choose the nominee. Maybe that will work out for them, but if it does, history tells us that they will choose a loser.

But back to the point about Joe Biden: History also tells us that the early leader in the polls almost never ends up winning the nomination. I’m not out on a limb at all on that one, and I think I’ll stick to it.

That is all.

Dems/NBC Structure Debate Lineups to Promote the Party’s New Dream Ticket

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

Well, the Democrat debate lineups are set for next week, and aren’t we all thrilled? Ok, no. But I’ll tell you who is thrilled to death, and that is Fauxcahontas, the fake Indian senator from Massachusetts who got her a seat at the kiddie table. This is how we know that she has now replaced Kamala Harris as the favored child of the Obama minions who are running the DNC into bankruptcy. We’ll explain, but first, take a look at how the “random drawing” for next week’s two debate nights turned out:

Image result for Democratic debate lineups

Image result for Democratic debate lineups

Anything look a little odd to you there? Well, it will if you understand how the Democrats and the fake news media – in this case, NBC and its affiliate channels – work together to structure their narratives and influence how this campaign is going to go.

The first thing to understand here is that the Democrat Party does nothing at random. Nothing is left to chance – everything is scripted, every word they utter, every public action they take is based on supporting the narrative, which in turn is based on polling and focus groups. So, ignore the myth that these lineups were determined by drawing names out of a hat. That’s utter nonsense.

Now that you understand that, take another look at the lineups and notice the most striking aspect of them: There is Princess Little Big Giveaway all by herself at the end of that first line, preceded by an amazing array of lightweights in the race. None of those other nine candidates is polling more than 2-3% support currently, and most of them come in at a flat zero in all but a handful of national polls. Who do you think that’s intended to benefit?

It’s been hilarious reading some of the “news” reports since the lineups were released, most of them claiming that Lieawatha somehow came out on the short end of the stick, based on the bad reasoning that golly, nobody will be watching that first debate because Biden and the Commie aren’t in it. This betrays a complete lack of understanding about what actually matters here, which is not how many people tune into the debate, but what the media narrative of it will be the next day.

The narrative for Night 1 is set up to be “Man, did Elizabeth Warren dominate that debate stage, or what?” It’s as predictable as Joe Biden groping a child at a public event. 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.

Thus, Night 2 will be crammed with the rest of the “heavyweights” in the race, if you can call them that. Sleepy Creepy Joe, the Commie, Kamala Harris and Mayor Pete will all be forced to compete with each other for opportunities to stand out, along with six rank also-rans like Kirsten Gillibrand and Marianne Williamson. The almost inevitable result of this lineup will be the formation of a circular firing squad with the guns trained mainly at Uncle Joe.

Guess who is most likely to come out of that mess looking best? If you said Mayor Pete, you’d be right. Because Buttigieg has already proven he’s much smarter than the rest of these hacks, and is the most likely one to be sure to stay completely out of the slugfest.

So, the lineup coming out of Night 2 sets up a narrative that will be something like “Buttigieg remains above the fray as a brawl breaks out on the debate stage.” Just millions more dollars worth of free media for the party’s “rising star.” No mystery here.

The people who run the DNC understand that Biden’s a dinosaur who is completely out of touch with the party’s radicalized voter base, and that the Commie is, well, a Commie who would lead the party to unrecoverable electoral disaster. So these lineups have obviously been structured to promote what is quickly emerging as the party’s “dream ticket” – a marriage between a fake Indian and an Obama disciple who has never before run for any office above mayor of a mid-size town in Indiana.

As much as they try to hide what they’re doing, the Democrats are really extremely transparent when you understand how they coordinate their efforts with our fake news media.

That is all.

Fauxcahontas Makes Heap Big Surge in Presidential Race

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

We here at the Campaign Update have consistently noted that Democrat voters love being lied to, and they appear determined to prove us right. If you hadn’t already picked up on it, the biggest surge in the Democrat nominating race over the past couple of months has not come from Mayor Pete Buttigieg, who has settled into polling consistently in the 7-8% support range. While that’s fairly respectable, we might have expected a little better performance from a guy who has received tens of millions of dollars in free, fawning air time from our fake news media since March.

No, the biggest surge has come from exactly the source we should have all anticipated, the life-long human fraud who has gotten everything she has achieved in life by lying. This is a woman who doesn’t just lie about economics, not just about the law, not just about public policy; oh, no, that’s not nearly enough. Elizabeth Warren is a woman who has spent her entire adult life disgracefully lying about who she even is as a person, pretending to be of American Indian descent in order to move ahead in line for plum jobs, to obtain licenses to practice law, and even to get elected to the United States Senate.

Making things even more hilarious – and thus making her even more appealing to liar-obsessed Democrat voters – Warren had become so bought into her own line of BS that she even resorted to taking a DNA test to prove her life of lies last year. When the test came back with the finding that she might – maybe – have 1/1024th native American blood in her stream, she immediately paraded around on a public “victory” tour. Only the loud objections from several Indian Tribes put a stop to that nonsense.

But why would it surprise us that her initial reaction to having been publicly proven to be a heinous, life-long fraud would be to stage a celebration? After all, this is a woman who wants to be the Democrat presidential nominee, and while she’s a horribly dishonest individual, she isn’t stupid. She knows what appeals most to her party’s demented voter base, and that DNA test was proof she had the main qualification to win their support.

You have to think like these Democrats think, folks. I know it’s hard, but once you do, everything they do makes perfect sense.

Anyway, getting to the point here, we’ve had a spate of new polls of the Democrat race released in the past few days, and they show a clear Lieawatha surge, one that well outpaces the little boomlet Mayor Pete’s enjoyed. Quinnipiac, which showed Warren getting just 4% support in March, now has her at a very strong 15%, just 4 points behind the Commie. Economist/YouGov, meanwhile, has her at 16%, 4 points ahead of the old Bolshevik, and just 11 points behind Creepy Uncle Joe.

At the state level, a new Des Moines Register poll has her surging to 15% support in that state, in a virtual tie with the Commie and 9 points behind Biden. In Nevada, another key early caucus state, a new poll by Monmouth shows her firmly in second place at 19% support.

And a note about Warren consistently now getting at or above that 15% support level: That’s the level of votes a candidate must attain to win delegates in the party’s new proportional system for 2020. Thus, Lieawatha now joins Biden and the Commie as the only candidates consistently breaching that key threshold.

Little Mouth Always Running’s recent surge, along with her solid fundraising efforts, have now clearly established her as the strongest woman in the race. Kamala Harris, who all the “experts” believed was the odds-on favorite to be the main challenger to Biden back in January, continues to struggle and her polling numbers have settled into an essential tie with Mayor Pete. Although she on the surface seems like a female carbon political copy of Barack Hussein Obama his own self, she so far simply lacks Obama’s ability to connect with voters.

In other words, Kamala is just a lousy candidate. Who knows – maybe if she made up a back story about how her great grandmother always told her she was a space alien, that might be an obvious-enough lie to steal voters away from Fauxcahontas. Do lies about Aliens trump lies about Indians in demented Democrat thought? Hard to know until it’s been tried, Kamala.

In any event, the math on this race is becoming increasingly clear as the contestants lurch towards their first debates later this month. We have a top tier of contenders that consists of the Creepy Uncle every family wants to hide in the basement, a Commie trying to pretend he’s merely a socialist, a fake Indian, a modestly unsuccessful mayor of a mid-size city most Americans have never heard of, and a Senator who advanced her career by having a years-long affair with a power broker twice her age. The other 20 or so candidates need to devise better sets of lies if they want to move up the pecking order.

Way to go, Democrats!

That is all.
