Doesn’t Anyone Actually Care About Joe Biden as a Human Being?

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

Doesn’t anyone actually care enough about this obviously impaired man to stage an intervention?

Joe Biden told an audience on Friday that his son was once the Attorney General of the United States;

Before the same puny audience, he confused the 2010 mid-term elections with the 2016 presidential contest;

On Saturday, he claimed to have been arrested in South Africa while visiting Nelson Mandela at some point in the 1970s, an incident none of his traveling companions remember and that was not reported in the news media, mainly because it never happened;

Also on Saturday, he forgot which state he was in. Again;

On Monday, he claimed to have negotiated the Paris Climate Accords with Deng Xiaoping. The problem there is that Deng has been dead since 1997;

Later on Monday, things really came to a head:

This is a very serious question: Does Quid Pro Joe, former Senator and ex-VEEP, have literally nobody left in his life who cares enough about him as a human being to stage an intervention? Look, it’s been kind of entertaining to poke fun at Biden’s serial gaffes over the years – he’s always been the political version of a walking, talking circus clown.

But at this point, the man has become so obviously impaired that it has begun to verge on blatant cruelty for his family and staff to keep running him out there to embarrass himself day after day on the campaign trail. His past debate performances have been just as bad, with the candidate rambling on and on in a way that nobody really understands what he’s even trying to say most of the time. And tonight, we can expect another cringe-worthy performance.

It’s also been tons of fun to make fun of the paltry audiences that show up for his “rallies”, if one can accurately call them that. Here’s the “crowd” that showed up at his South Carolina event on Monday:

Image may contain: one or more people, basketball court and crowd

There’s, what, maybe 120 people in that photo, half of whom are either press or campaign staffers. Meanwhile, The Commie was drawing a crowd of 12,000 in the People’s Republic of Austin, the last remaining socialist sanctuary in my home state of Texas.

Yet, for all of his serial buffoonery, increasingly obvious impairment and lack of star-power, America’s Unfrozen Caveman Senator has shown an odd staying power in this race. Yes, his status as “front-runner” is now long gone, but the man did manage to finish in an admittedly-weak second place in Nevada on Saturday despite his horrifically poor showings in Iowa and New Hampshire. And he is somehow still managing to cling to his stubborn polling lead in South Carolina, a lead that has actually increased in the most recent polls.

If he is able to hold off The Commie and win in the Palmetto State, and pick off a big Super Tuesday state or two (he is polling close to The Commie in Texas and a few other states), he might well be able to start raising some actual money again and stay in the race all the way to the convention.

The question becomes, though, is that outcome, one in which his staff and wife continue to roll him out there to embarrass himself day after day after day, really in his best interest as a human being? Sadly for Quid Pro Joe, no one around him seems to care.

That is all.

The Las Vegas Debate Was Bloomberg’s Own Waterloo

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

He never should’ve agreed to participate in that Las Vegas debate. – One of the best ways to gauge the state of a multi-candidate presidential nominating race is to follow the betting odds. The polling business in the United States has become too corrupt now to really trust, other than to use aggregates of polls over time to assess trends.

Another problem with the polls is that so many people – like yours truly – simply lie to pollsters about who they really support. Some do it due to social stigma about supporting specific candidates; others, like me, do it because they just basically detest polling operations and the way so many have allowed themselves to become tools of corrupt media organizations. I personally haven’t spoken the truth to any pollster since Rush Limbaugh implemented “Operation Chaos” during the 2008 Democratic primary race between Obama and the Pantsuit Princess.

But the betting odds are a different animal entirely. These odds aren’t calculated just from average people telling their opinions to some stranger on the telephone; to the contrary, these are calculated from people putting their money where their mouths are. Few, if any bettors are going to slap down a hundred bucks on some candidate they believe to be a looooser just to distort the results tabulated by RealClearPolitics.

Right? Right.

Using the RCP aggregate of betting odds as a primary gauge, the disastrous debate showing by Mr. Excitement, Mike Bloomberg, last Wednesday is going to have a major negative impact on his polling numbers and, by extension, on his ability to accumulate votes and maybe even win a state or two in the March 3 Super Tuesday primaries.

Just nine days ago, The Commie held a shaky 5-point lead over Mini-Mike in this important gauge of public sentiment, with Sanders pulling in 39% of the money being bet and Mr. Excitement 34%. That Commie lead began to expand, though, as video after video began to surface of Mini-Mike making horrific public statements offending all manner of traditional Democrat interest groups. By the time debate day came around, the Sanders lead had grown to 17 points.

In the three days since Bloomberg’s Vegas Waterloo, the bottom has dropped out. The Commie’s support has jumped up over 50% for the first time, while Mr. Excitement has crashed down to 22%. It is very likely that that near-30% gap between the two will only expand after Sanders scores what is going to be a big winning margin in the Nevada caucuses.

Before that debate took place, Mini-Mike had actually moved into slight polling leads in both Oklahoma and Arkansas, and was becoming competitive in a couple of the other Super Tuesday states, based solely on the strength of $300 million spent on TV and social media ads.  In polling released over the next 7-10 days, we will likely see those leads go poof!, as the impacts of his debate catastrophe begin to show up in the polling data.

I told you on Wednesday morning that there was no possible benefit for Bloomberg to appear in that debate: He wasn’t even on the ballot in Nevada – why take the risk of having exactly the horrific debate performance he in fact had? And there was no way this near-terminally boring old man who hadn’t participated in a debate setting in a dozen years was going to have a good night against a pack of desperate animals who have been doing nothing but debating and running their mouths for almost a damn year now.

Mr. Excitement is also not on the ballot in South Carolina, yet he has agreed to participate in this coming week’s Democrat debate in that state. Why? Well, now he pretty much has no choice, does he? Given that the South Carolina primary comes just 3 days before Super Tuesday, Tuesday night’s debate in Charleston will literally be Mini-Mike’s last gasp chance to stage a recovery from his massive failure in Vegas.

You have to believe he will have a better performance in Charleston than he did last Wednesday, just due to practice. In fact, he really did better in the second hour of his first debate, as he seemed to sort of gain his tiny footing on-stage and at least begin to fight back at his tormentors. Plus, he will have had 6 additional days to try to buy some of the other candidates, along with the moderators, off, which is his normal modus operandi. Any success in that realm would also be helpful.

But here’s the thing: This last desperate chance scenario did not need to happen. Mr. Excitement could have easily justified sitting out these two debates due to the fact of his absence from the ballots in those states. He could have stayed on the sidelines and relied on his massive wealth to buy enough Super Tuesday votes to get a couple of wins and a strong enough showing overall to impede Sanders’ quest to become the nominee.

But my view is that it is now too late for Bloomberg to recover from his blunder: Sanders’ coming big win in Nevada is going to lend his campaign an air of inevitability, one that will most likely lead to a narrow win in next Saturday’s South Carolina primary. At that point, the race to see who can accumulate the most delegates heading into July’s convention in Milwaukee will be over, and, if Biden and Warren drop their campaigns after March 3 as I believe they will, The Commie would even have a fighting chance of winning enough delegates over the next few months to prevail on a first ballot at that convention.

In the end, what we see here is that the Waterloo analogy is incredibly apt: Mr. Excitement’s decision to participate in the Las Vegas debate was a fatal strategic blunder committed by a little man consumed with unbridled hubris.

History repeats.

Bloomberg Would Have Been Better Off Tucked Away in Bed

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

On the bright side, at least he wasn’t standing on a box. – On the down side, he was the shortest person on the stage, and the visuals were not good. But, by god, he wasn’t going to let Trump be right about that box thing, which is exactly the reaction the President wanted to get, by the way. Hilarious.

The big, big, big winner of last night was without any doubt at all President Donald Trump. While Mini-Mike was getting his butt handed to him by every other candidate on the stage in Las Vegas, Mr. Trump held a massive rally of his own a couple of hours down the road in Phoenix.

The contrast between the two events could not have been more stark: The Trump rally a celebration of America in all her great, booming glory, and the Democrat debate a nasty, depressing series of complaints about societal wrongs, most of which are either imaginary or created by the very policies supported by the people standing on the stage yelling.

In a stark change from the demented Democrats’ prior debates, most of the yelling was directed not at President Trump, but at the little munchkin huddled behind his podium at the left end of the stage. Fauxcahontas kicked things off with this brutal take down of the tiny former Mayor:

Ouch. For Bloomberg, things only went downhill from there. Despite an embarrassingly pre-planned, softball question on “stop and frisk” lobbed at him by an obviously paid-off Lester Holt, Little Mikey’s answer was disjointed, insincere and filled with complete lies about his record.

When both Warren and Quid Pro Joe, of all people, went after him on the hundreds of non-disclosure agreements he has in place with aggrieved women and minorities who have filed complaints and lawsuits against him over the years, Bloomberg was obviously completely unprepared to address the question. He was similarly unprepared to answer a softball question lobbed at him by paid-off Chuck Todd about his tax returns.

This is a guy who has literally thousands of advisors working on his campaign – quite a contrast to the dozen or so Trump employed in his own campaign in 2016 – and he is so filled with hubris that he couldn’t be bothered to take the time to really prepare himself for a debate against 5 seasoned opponents. But we’re supposed to believe that a man this lazy and arrogant would be just great dealing with the Putins and the Xi’s of the world.

The other mistake Mr. Excitement made repeatedly was tossing out lame attempts at humor, all of which fell completely flat in an auditorium filled with radical leftist activists and career political hacks. The worst example came when he made a reference to The Commie being, well, a commie, a crack that would have worked just fine at any business conference in America – venues where Mini-Mike is used to speaking – but which elicited boos and I’m pretty sure even some hisses from last night’s crowd.

It was, in other words, just a terrible night for the multi-multi-times-multi-billionaire, a night that will not be helpful at all in advancing his attempted leveraged buyout of the Democrat Party. He’d have been much better off tucked into bed like Little Lord Fauntleroy and having his man servant bring him a nice bedtime snack consisting of Cristal champagne, canapes and caviar.

While his performance will not be helpful, the big question is whether or not it will do the former Mayor any long-term harm. The debate audience consisted of maybe 6 million people, and while Little Mikey will have to deal with some short-term criticism of his performance, a fawning and largely paid-off press corps probably won’t allow that to last very long.

Bloomberg’s real problem – and the problem for the Democrat Party as well – is that no one laid a glove on The Commie, who is on the verge of being the actual winner in each of the first three contested states, and who is surging in the polls in next week’s contest in South Carolina. As was discussed at one point during the debate, unless there is some major shift in momentum, Sanders is on a trajectory that will see him come out of the Super Tuesday contests on March 3 with a very large and potentially insurmountable lead in the delegate count.

Nothing that took place last night will do anything to slow that momentum. So, other than the President, The Commie came out as the biggest winner of this particular event.

The biggest loser tag must go to Amy Klobuchar. The lady from Univision who served as NBC’s token Hispanic moderator, there to ask questions only about Mexico and immigration, obviously had been assigned to take Klobuchar out, and did a pretty solid job of it in her attack on the senator’s inability to recall the name of Mexican President AMLO last week. When class nerd Preacher Pete chimed in on the attack over that silly non-issue, Klobuchar became visibly flustered and angry and never really recovered.

My question about Univision Lady and Univision panelists in general is, why does NBC always insist on stereotyping them, restricting them to asking only Latino-specific questions at these debates? Isn’t that kind of racist? Why do the folks at Univision continue to allow this pidgeon-holing take place?

Preacher Pete was his usual slick, totally-scripted, automatonic self, and no doubt scored points with Democrat voters who are susceptible to scripted talking-points robots. His big problem was of a visual nature: Like Nixon in 1960, Buttiegieg suffers from a bad case of 5 o’clock shadow, and obviously failed to shave right before the event. Not a good look under the bright lights of national TV.

Biden was Biden, yelling and ranting and claiming to have been the guy who wrote every bill, negotiated every treaty, and did every political deal that has been done since the Nixon Administration. Mainly, though, he just confused everyone watching. He is going nowhere with a bullet in this race.

Lieawatha, as previously mentioned, had some solid moments, mainly when she was attacking Bloomberg, and she had obviously been coached to be more assertive in this debate. But she is just so condescending and annoying, and all her BS stories about her fake childhood do more to harm her now than help her. She might get a slight boost in Nevada out of this performance, but is ultimately riding on the Going Nowhere train with Quid Pro Joe.

In the end, the most salient question of the night came not from any of the moderators, but from Preacher Pete, who, midway through the night, asked, “Why don’t we put forward someone who is actually a Democrat?” With the race now boiling down to a fight between a Commie and a guy who was a registered Republican while serving in his only elected office, it’s a good question.

In the post-debate analysis on CNN, it was Van Jones who correctly noted that the fact that none of the “actual” Democrats are likely to become this year’s nominee most likely means that the public believes there is something wrong with being an “actual” Democrat. You don’t say.

Jones – who is really the only person on CNN worth listening to these days – also had this to say about Bloomberg: “It was a disaster for Bloomberg. Bloomberg went in as the Titanic. Billion dollar machine, Titanic. Titanic, meet iceberg, Elizabeth Warren.”

He should’ve stayed at home.

New Hampshire Breeds More Chaos For The Democrats

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

Tired of all this WINNING yet? – While the Dow closed down by less than 1 percent, both the NASDAQ and S&P 500 managed record high closes for the second straight day despite indications from Federal Reserve Board Chair Jerome Powell that the Fed will not be lowering interest rates again at its next meeting.

Speaking of WINNING, Democrat looooosers were dropping like flies after poor finishes in last night’s New Hampshire primary. Andrew Yang was the first to end his campaign, in which he attempted to bribe his way to the nomination with the false promise of paying a “living wage” to every adult of $1,000. Just a few minutes behind Yang was Colorado Senator Michael Bennet, who most people didn’t know was in the race in any event.

A little bit later in the evening, some corrupt reporter – I never did find out who it was – tweeted a “scoop” that he/she had actually listened as billionaire Tom Steyer told his supporters that he was leaving the race, and many others picked up the “story” and repeated it. It turned out to be false, as Steyer, who has already wasted more than $200 million in the race to get to 1% in Iowa and 3% in New Hampshire, seems intent on wasting another few hundred million before finally giving up his ghost of a campaign. Cool.

The winner, of course, was The Commie, Bernie Sanders. The old Bolshevik  managed to outpace Preacher Pete Buttigieg by about 4,000 votes, similar to his initial vote margin in the Iowa Caucuses, where Preacher Pete ended up being awarded one more delegate by the Party’s “counters.” Despite his edge in the New Hampshire vote, The Commie was awarded the same number of delegates as the Preacher, leaving him still one behind in the Party’s bizarre method of awarding delegates, despite having collected about 10,000 more votes.

Because this is how the Democrat Party operates in the year 2020.

But the real stories of the night came with who finished in third place, and who didn’t manage to crack the top 3.

As I predicted yesterday, Amy Klobuchar had a strong showing, coming in third behind Preacher Pete and dominating the analyst panels on CNN and MSNBC.

Klobuchar probably shouldn’t get too used to grabbing so much of the spotlight, though. In New Hampshire, she benefited from an indecisive voter base in which almost half of Democrat voters didn’t make up their minds until the three days prior to Tuesday. This enabled her to benefit from a strong debate performance on Friday night, as well as the implosions being experienced by the previous favorites in the race.

The campaign moves next to Nevada, a caucus state in which heavy organizing is key. Klobuchar hasn’t had the funding needed to build much of an organization there, and is thus unlikely to do as well. With just 10 days left before that event, she has little time to really get into that race even if her strong NH finish results in a pile of new cash coming into her campaign.

South Carolina comes a week later, and she is barely even registering in polls there. Where Bill Clinton could finish an also-ran in New Hampshire in 1992 and then be pushed by the fawning news media into front-runner status, today’s corrupt media is too bought-in to promoting Preacher Pete and Mini-Mike Bloomberg as the great hopes to head off The Commie to spend much time pushing Sen. Klobuchar as an alternative. So, expect the talk around Klobuchar in the coming days to focus on the viability of her becoming a potential “moderate” running mate to balance a ticket headed by The Commie.

Then, of course, there were the big, big loooooosers of the night: Quid Pro Joe and Lieawatha, the two former “front-runners” in the race.

Think about this: Amy Klobuchar, who finished third, received more votes than both Crazy Uncle Joe and Fauxcahontas, combined. Neither candidate could even crack 10% of the vote. Given that these two had polled neck-and-neck in the state with The Commie since last April, that is a stunning result.

Biden was so certain he would have a horrible finish in New Hampshire that he cancelled his “celebration” party there and fled to South Carolina Tuesday afternoon so he could deliver a despicably pandering speech to a crowd that actually had some – as he calls them – “black and brown folks” in it.

After delivering her own concession speech, Little Mouth Always Running was seen trying to score some peyote and heading off to the nearest sweat lodge so she could re-calibrate her campaign’s strategy.

While all the drama in New Hampshire was taking place, Billionaire Bloomberg was spending another $30 million or so on ads in the big Super Tuesday states, which are the first ones where he will actually be on the ballot. By the time these other folks get to that point in the calendar, they’ll all be either broke or exhausted.

This is chaos, folks, a chaos that is setting up perfectly for a brokered convention in Milwaukee in July.

Finally, the story the media is ignoring this morning is the story about turnout. Total Democrat turnout was once again lower than expected, with 280,000 total votes cast in that primary, compared to expectations of more than 300,000. This is a depressed and floundering Party.

Meanwhile, GOP turnout wildly exceeded expectations, with more than 130,000 votes cast compared to projections of something around 100,000. The President received twice as many votes as Barack Obama, Bill Clinton or Ronald Reagan received in New Hampshire in their re-election bids.

And that is what President Donald Trump calls WINNING.

 

Here are my updated, post-New Hampshire odds for the ultimate winner of the Democrat nomination:

The Commie:     5 to 2

Mini-Mike:         3 to 1

Preacher Pete:  15 to 1

Klobuchar:        20 to 1

Quid Pro Joe:   100 to 1

Fauxcahontas:  100 to 1

Hillary Clinton at a brokered convention:  5 to 4

 

That is all.

Could Amy Klobuchar Emerge From the New Hampshire Pack?

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

I know, I know, but don’t laugh.  – The Democrat Party has a long history of seeing surprise candidates emerge out of the New Hampshire primary. What’s interesting about this history is that the “surprise” has often not come with who won the primary, but in a candidate who finished as a surprisingly strong also-ran.

In 1972, Edmund Muskie won the primary as he was predicted to do, but it was radical-leftist candidate George McGovern who stole the thunder coming out of the Granite State, finishing in a surprisingly strong second place with over 37% of the vote. McGovern rode the momentum of that strong second place showing all the way to the nomination, culminating his year with an historic landslide loss to Richard Nixon.

In 1976, Jimmy Carter defied the pre-primary polls, narrowly defeating both Mo Udall and Birch Bayh to become the clear front-runner in the race for the nomination.

Colorado Senator Gary Hart shocked the pundits with a big win in New Hampshire over Walter Mondale in 1984. But it was the second-place finisher who ended up winning the nomination and the right to be the Democrats’ sacrificial lamb against Ronald Reagan.

Senator Paul Tsongas entered the 1992 New Hampshire primary with a strong polling lead over a crowded field, and to no one’s surprise, ended up winning. But it was Bill Clinton who stole the show, coming in second after having been basically written-off by all the “smart people” in Washington following a virtual no-show in the Iowa Caucuses. In his speech that evening, Clinton declared himself to be the “comeback kid,” and a fawning national press corps fell in love with him. The race for the nomination essentially ended that night.

Many will not remember that the Pantsuit Princess actually made a comeback of her own in New Hampshire in 2008, narrowly winning the primary following a poor showing in Iowa of her own. But despite losing, Barack Obama His Own Self stole the show with a powerful speech, and the same corrupt media that had jumped on the Clinton team in 1992 immediately signed up to play a similar role on Team Obama.

The Commie won big in New Hampshire in 2016, capturing 60% of the vote to 37% for the Fainting Felon. But by then the Clinton camp owned the DNC lock, stock and barrel, and succeeded in rigging the process against Sanders for the rest of the way.

So, who’s going to be the surprise of this year’s primary? It could very well be Amy Klobuchar, Senator from [checks notes] Minnesota. No one really took a Klobuchar candidacy seriously when she decided to enter the race over a year ago, and who knows – maybe last week’s 13%, 5th place finish in Iowa will turn out to have been her high water mark in the race.

But I keep getting this pesky feeling that she might surprise us.

Klobuchar has had a hard time raising money; she isn’t a flashy person who gets attention by shouting or cussing or making outrageous statements like so many of her competitors do; and she carries with her the baggage of a reputation as being one of the most abusive bosses on Capitol Hill. This is not an admirable person, but hey, she’s a Democrat so that doesn’t matter.

But she has basically become this race’s tortoise, plugging slowly but steadily behind a field of hares, slowly gaining ground on the field as they go off on their tirades and tangents. The photo that accompanies this piece captures the essence of her candidacy perfectly, standing there calmly, with a disapproving look on her face, in the midst of a pack of braying jackasses. It reminds me of the look my dear mother used to get when she would catch me and my brothers fighting in the back yard.

That photo is from last Friday’s debate, during which Klobuchar, by all accounts, had a pretty strong showing. I wouldn’t know, because I just cannot bring myself to waste 2-3 hours watching those things. But that seems to be the consensus.

Klobuchar has also been drawing some pretty strong crowds this week in New Hampshire, at least “strong” in the context of this Democrat race, where getting a high school gymnasium half-filled with voters and staff constitutes a “strong” turnout.

Klobuchar’s other main asset as a candidate is the storm that constantly brews around her in the form of the three braying jackasses in that photo, along with Preacher Pete and Faucahontas. Think about it: Klobuchar is the only candidate among those six who has not had a nickname bestowed upon her by President Donald Trump.

Finally, there is Klobuchar’s reputation as being a “moderate” among this field of leftist lunatics. As Joe Biden and his “electability” image rapidly implode, all of his voters are going to be looking to land somewhere. It seems to be that Klobuchar fills that bill better than any of the other candidates on the New Hampshire ballot, which does not include billionaire Mike Bloomberg.

All of these factors are combining to give me a sneaking suspicion that, when the dust settles late Tuesday evening, Amy Klobuchar might well be this year’s “surprise” coming out of New Hampshire. She isn’t going to win – The Commie almost certainly will do that unless the DNC can figure out a way to defraud the vote as it did in Iowa – but given the shifting dynamics in the field this week, it is conceivable she might receive more votes than Quid Pro Joe and/or Fauxcahontas.

Finishing ahead of either of those two would qualify Klobuchar as a “surprise.” Beating both of them would constitute a shock to the Democrat system. Either place would rocket her up to the top of speculation about being a running mate for the eventual nominee.

Tomorrow will be very, very interesting.

That is all.

Recapping A Historic Week of #WINNING

Today’s Campaign Update, Part III (Because the Campaign Never Ends)

When the history of the Trump Administration is written, the week just past will be remembered as the week in which the tide of history turned, not just in favor of President Donald Trump, but in favor of the American people and the American Republic as well. The forces of globalism are in retreat and tatters all over the developed world, and nowhere is that more clear than here in the United States, thanks to Mr. Trump’s endurance and leadership.

Let’s take a look at the events that have taken place since last Saturday, February 1, 2020:

Brexit becomes official. – There is no question that the fortunes of the Brexit movement in the UK and the nationalist Trump movement in the U.S. have been intertwined since the day Donald and Melania Trump rode the escalator into the lobby of Trump Tower to announce his candidacy. After a long and bitter, 3-1/2 year battle since the day it had been initially approved by the British voters, Brexit became official at 12:00 midnight, February 1, restoring the national sovereignty over the United Kingdom.

That moment in time came roughly 5 minutes after the United States Senate had voted to reject the calling of any new witnesses in its impeachment trial of President Trump, ensuring his ultimate acquittal in the Democrat/media’s absurd coup d’etat effort. The symbolism of those two historic events occurring within mere minutes of one another cannot be overemphasized.

The President’s historic State of the Union Speech – The optics around this speech could not have been more positive for President Trump or more negative for Nancy Pelosi and the Democrats in attendance. Americans got to see the true nature of the leftist radicals who make up the party’s caucus in congress, as shot after shot from the cameras showed their members scowling, jeering and even at times hissing as the President introduced a young mother who gave birth to a premature baby; another single mom to whose child he awarded an opportunity scholarship; a talk radio host with stage 4 cancer to whom he had the First Lady award a Medal of Freedom; and the rightful president of Venezuela.

The speech drove Speaker Nancy Pelosi into such a pique of outright rage that she tore the text to shreds as Trump finished, creating a visual so stunning and depraved that it will likely be used in most Republican TV ads for the general election.

Full acquittal. – Just 20 hours later, President Trump became the second president to be fully acquitted of impeachment charges, a verdict that will live in history for all-time. Simultaneously, the leader of the anti-Trump RINO faction, Mitt Romney, proved himself to be a despicable snake by becoming the first senator in history to cast a pro-conviction vote on one of the two articles of impeachment. Whether he understands it or not, Romney is now finished a viable candidate for any future GOP presidential nomination. As has so often been the case, yet another Trump enemy destroys himself with his own actions.

Dismissal of the Emoluments Clause litigation. – In a unanimous decision, a 3-judge panel of the DC Circuit Court of Appeals – none of whom are Trump appointees – dismissed the ridiculous and abusive lawsuit brought by 29 Democrat senators and 186 Democrat representatives alleging that President Trump had violated the Emoluments Clause of the Constitution. Another major win for the President in a clear case of mindless harassment by the Democrats.

The utter collapse of Joe Biden. – Quid Pro Joe Biden, who has been the clear front-runner for the Democrat presidential nomination for 10 solid months, saw his base of support completely collapse during the week. This was inevitable, as voters who just recently began paying attention to the Democrat race began to realize that Biden is clearly impaired and not in any way capable of holding the highest office in the land. The result was a poor, 4th-place finish in Iowa, where he barely was able to finish ahead 0f Amy Klobuchar. Biden’s polling numbers have nose-dived not only in New Hampshire, but also in Nevada and South Carolina, setting up the possibility that he will not win a single contest before heading into Super Tuesday.

The Democrat Party implodes in Iowa. – As if Pelosi’s antics weren’t damaging enough, the effort by the DNC to rig the results of the Iowa caucuses against The Commie, Bernie Sanders, resulted in such a mass of confusion and outright buffoonery that even the New York Times felt obligated to report on it. It is a muck-up of epic proportions from which the Party may never be able to recover.

As I write this today, six days after the voting, party officials have still been unable to release final results, and “irregularities” in which the published results do not match the results tabulated by the individual caucus managers have been identified in 95 of the state’s 99 counties. Unsurprisingly, virtually all of those “irregularities” work against The Commie and in favor of Preacher Pete Buttigieg, who the Party has tried to portray as the Caucus “winner.”

This is electoral larceny on an unprecedentedly grand scale.

Incredible jobs numbers. – On Wednesday, the ADP report on private sector jobs added for January came in at 291,000, almost doubling the consensus predictions by “experts” of 160,000. On Friday, the Labor Department non-farms jobs report for the month came in at 225,000, blasting through the “experts” forecast of 165,000. Despite a whopping 183,000 previously-discouraged workers coming back into the labor force during January, the rate of unemployment for all classes of Americans remained at record or near-record lows.

Cleaning House. – To cap off the most amazing week of non-stop WINNING of this or perhaps any presidency, the Administration began the process of cleaning house of coup plotters. Both of the Vindman twins serving as spies and leakers at the NSC were escorted from the White House premises late Friday afternoon, and a few hours later, smarmy Ambassador to the EU Gordon Sondland was relieved of his official duties. Much, much more cleaning house remains to be done, but these dismissals were a very fine way to start.

By week’s end, the Democrats were reeling from their week of horrific losing, obviously at a loss over where to head next. Their media supporters, meanwhile, were so panicked over what they were seeing that not a single Sunday morning fakenews program invited anyone from the White House to appear as a guest.

The Democrats no doubt will now cast about for another scam to try to run against the President, but the tactic has become so blatantly obvious to the vast majority of Americans that few will take seriously anything they and their corrupt media toadies drum up next. The Democrat Party, through its incessant dishonest machinations against the President over the last four years, has literally turned itself into the Boy who Cried Wolf. Not a good look for a political party with no policy agenda.

As for President Trump and his Administration, it’s hard to see what they could do to even come close to the level of WINNING seen in the past week.

Wait, how about this: The Department of Justice is still sitting on unacted-upon criminal referrals targeting Peter Strzok, Andrew McCabe and James Comey. Acting on some or all of those sure would make for a fun week.

How about it, Attorney General Barr?

That is all.

How the Democrats Rigged Iowa’s “Results”

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

So, here’s what actually happened in Iowa on Tuesday:

Just like clockwork, ABC and others reported Tuesday afternoon that people from the DNC showed up and “took over” the count early in the day.

The DNC then decided which results would be published, and when. The riggers had several clear objectives here: 1) disguise the true voter turnout for the caucuses, which was disastrously low, showing a Party headed for sea-change losses in November; 2) find a “winner” based on partial results other than The Commie; and 3) prop up Quid Pro Joe as best they could.

To achieve those three goals, the DNC carefully selected at least one precinct result from every Iowa County, as the Democrat State Chairman was careful to state during his press conference at 4:00 p.m. Central Time. This canard gives the appearance of some thoroughness and “fairness” in the count, while at the same time limiting it in a way that delivered the preferred “results.”

You almost have to admire the evil genius at work here, don’t you?

The carefully-selected 62% of the votes ultimately revealed meet the needs of showing someone – anyone – other than The Commie as the “winner.” That person turned out to be Preacher Pete, who had received more raw votes than anyone other than The Commie.

[If you are feeling doubtful here about what I’m telling you, ask yourself this question: Why just 62%? Where did that percentage come from? The State Chairman who got shoved out there to talk to the press repeatedly stated that they had all the vote totals, safe and secure. And how could they not by that time, given the low voter turnout? But, conveniently, not one single reporter present had the curiosity to question why 100% of the results were not announced yesterday. Why? Because they are all on board with the preferred narrative.] 

Quid Pro Joe’s vote totals were only about half of The Commie’s, so he was non-viable to be the DNC’s hand-picked stand-in “winner.” However, the DNC precinct-pickers were able to rig things so that the Unfrozen Caveman Senator came in at just above 15%, at least for now, providing the illusion that he will ultimately qualify to win some delegates from the state. Thus, while the media narrative related to Creepy Uncle Joe was negative overall, corrupt talking heads were able to end their analyses with some variation of “but he did well enough to win some delegates.”

Faucahontas didn’t even manage to win Pocahontas County, so she was non-viable as well.

Preacher Pete got to declare “victory” and steal the momentum that The Commie would have otherwise had coming out of Iowa. Even better, the failed Mayor of South Bend was able to make that declaration while campaigning New Hampshire, thus stealing even more of the Big Mo from The Commie.

By the time the full results are ultimately released later this week or next week – who knows at this point? –  the news cycle will have passed and moved on to State of the Union and today’s Senate acquittal of President Trump. Even if the results show a Commie win, the corrupt media will studiously ignore them on the claim that they amount to “old news.”

The same dynamic comes into play where the low voter turnout is concerned. Had the real numbers been reported Monday night as they should have been, the corrupt talking heads would have had no choice but to focus in on them, at least for awhile. But, coming now in the wake of this week’s other major events, CNN probably won’t bother to even mention them in a chyron at the bottom of their fake news screen.

Thus, The Commie, even though he was the candidate who clearly won the most raw votes Monday night, is cheated out of any appearance of being the Party’s front-runner. For the evil cretins who run the DNC, this rigging operation in Iowa staves off a media disaster for at least another week.

Sure will be fun to see how they cheat The Commie out of a win in New Hampshire, won’t it?

But what about Buttigieg? We should not for a moment believe that the Party leaders and major donors want to promote Preacher Pete, either. He was just the candidate they were able to prop up in this particular state. Buttigieg is wildly unpopular among the Party’s most important – and most taken-for-granted – constituency, Black voters. Preacher Pete somehow managed to find half a dozen African American women to use as props sitting right behind him during his “victory” speech, but he had to work very hard to find them:

Black voters hate this guy, and it has nothing to do with his being gay. South Bend is a horribly-segregated city, and Preacher Pete did nothing during his 8 long years as Mayor to do anything about it.

It is a plain and simple fact that no Democrat can win the presidency without carrying, at a minimum, 90% of the Black vote. Preacher Pete would be lucky to receive half of that.

So, he is definitely not the guy the DNC wants to end up rigging this process in favor of.

With the rapid collapse of Quid Pro Joe now in full gear, the Party riggers are obviously going to shift their efforts in favor of Mini-Mike Bloomberg. Mr. Excitement. They’ve already shifted, in fact, announcing last week that they have changed their debate qualifying requirements to meet the billionaire’s personal needs. No doubt, they’ll get him that box to stand on, too.

So, as I’ve talked about repeatedly here over the last three years, this is just how today’s Democrat Party works. These people have no intention whatsoever of leaving the selection of their presidential nominee to the riff-raff in their voter base – these caucuses and primaries are just for show. The DNC’s job is to create and somehow maintain it’s narrative, in careful coordination with its corrupt media toadies, throughout the sham process.

In fact, this entire proportional awarding of delegates in each state was put into place for the specific purpose of ensuring there will be a split convention. Because a split convention is the easiest way for the DNC riggers to select the candidate of their choice, while making it seem like the voters had a voice.

Right now, they’re desperately trying to rig things in favor of Mini-Mike. But should Mr. Excitement falter – which seems inevitable, frankly – a split convention gives the riggers a chance to rig things for a “white knight” to ride in to save the Party. Or, if it’s the Pantsuit Princess again, waddle in to save the Party.

This is just how today’s Democrats roll, folks. Get used to it.

 

That is all.

The Democrats Are Rigging Their Process Again

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

If you believe a single word the Democrat Party is telling you about the Iowa Caucus results, please give me a call because boy, do I have a deal on some Central Texas property for you.

No, seriously, if you believe anything the Democrat Party tells you, then you certainly are buying the propaganda from the Chinese government that it, like, totally has that coronavirus awesomely under control. I know, right?

If you believe the Democrat Party today, then you no doubt believed Adam Schiff on Monday when he said that President Trump will give Alaska away to the Russians unless the Senate removes him from office. If you believe the Democrat Party today, then you were no doubt completely reassured last night when Fox News brought out former DNC Chairman Donna Brazile – who fed Hillary Clinton debate questions in advance and played a major role in rigging the party’s 2016 nominating process against Bernie Sanders – to reassure us that, hey, don’t worry, everything’s on the up and up out there in Iowa.

Folks, we are talking about counting maybe, what, a few hundred thousand votes here? I personally could have had it all totaled up, precinct by precinct, candidate by candidate, wrapped it and put a bow on it by about 10 p.m. CT last night using an abacus. I could have had it all done with a telephone, a pencil, a note pad and my aging brain by 10:30.

But the Democrat Party, the Party that has already clearly and unambiguously demonstrated to the world that it had no compunction whatsoever about rigging its nominating process in 2016, doing its best to rig the general election a few months later that year, and working its ass off to rig this year’s process to prevent an outright takeover by The Commie and his Marxist hordes, tells us that the whole thing fell apart last night because some smart phone app created by a company owned by Hillary Clinton operatives failed, and we’re supposed to just say, yeah, ok, you guys wouldn’t lie, would you? C’mon.

What, because a smart phone app fails, the party’s precinct chairmen are too stupid and dependent on technology that they are no longer capable of actually dialing a phone number and calling in their results? Most of these precincts only had a few dozen people show up. Maybe half of them had to count numbers into the hundreds. Only a handful had to count above 1,000.

But we’re supposed to believe that hey, a smart phone app failed, so it’s totes reasonable that nobody knows who did what this morning. Has the entire state of Iowa turned into Palm Beach and Broward County?

Or maybe the Democrat Party has now so devolved into leftist dogma that it really just wanted to create the situation we saw last night where everyone walked away with a participation trophy. We had the spectacle of no fewer than three candidates – Preacher Pete, The Commie and Lieawatha – declaring victory.

Quid Pro Joe – who by all anecdotal reports finished a poor fourth in most precincts – didn’t declare victory, but he did tell his few dozen demented followers that “we will walk away with our share” of delegates. No one knows what the Unfrozen Caveman Senator meant by that, and neither does he.

I warned you on Sunday that all the signs of this thing being rigged were out there, and here we sit this morning, with all the signs of its still being rigged having come about. It’s obvious that Party leaders didn’t like the way the actual caucus voting process went, so they are in the process of creating a final outcome that they can live with, and working hard to make sure that everyone involved fully understands the talking points before they make that outcome public. This is just how these corrupt people operate.

And hey, the DNC literally owns this nominating process, so they can rig it any way they want to. What the rest of us need to understand is that, if we keep electing Democrats to office, our general elections will be rigged in the same manner. Hell, they’ve already been able to make that happen in parts of Florida, Arizona and California. If we don’t stop them, it’s just a matter of time before the entire country is rigged.

As we watch this rigging process play itself out, everyone needs to take a moment to reflect on the fact that the people who are claiming they are incapable of counting 200,000 votes without a smart phone app are the very same people who want to be in charge of your health care. Breathtaking.

They won’t stop, until they are stopped.

UPDATE: About a minute after I posted this piece, President Trump summed Iowa up in a single tweet as only he can do:

Hilarious. And true.

That is all.

Democrats in a Super Panic on Super Bowl Sunday

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

No, the Des Moines Register Poll did not kill itself. – The leaders in the Democrat Party are now in full-blown panic as The Commie closes in on a win in Iowa. So panicked, in fact, that they almost certainly spiked the final Des Moines Register poll – a tradition for 76 years running – that was to be released on Sunday.

The narrative being pushed by the corrupt news media is that the Register, and its co-sponsor, CNN (because of course it’s CNN) decided to scrap the poll because one of the people conducting the poll consistently mispronounced the name of Pete Buttigieg. Which is about the lamest false narrative the Democrats and their media toadies have ever attempted to push.

With other polls released this week showing The Commie with a clear lead – which has expanded as the week has gone on – it’s pretty obvious that the folks at the DNC and CNN didn’t want the Register poll coming out the day before the caucuses showing an even bigger lead for Sanders.

This of course raises the specter that the DNC may well be planning to falsify the results of the caucuses, and they thus didn’t want to have a Register poll showing The Commie with a double-digit lead in advance of some sort of miracle “win” by Quid Pro Joe or CNN’s favorite candidate, Little Big Mouth Always Running. Do not be surprised if this sort of “upset” ends up being the official result tomorrow night.

Democrat leaders are so panicked by the looming acquittal of President Trump and what is certain to be a gangbusters State of the Union Address Tuesday evening, in fact, that John Freaking Kerry was overheard in the lobby of a Des Moines hotel loudly discussing the possibility of jumping into the race in order to save the party from a total Commie takeover:

DES MOINES, Iowa — Former Secretary of State John Kerry — one of Joe Biden’s highest-profile endorsers — was overheard Sunday on the phone at a Des Moines hotel explaining what he would have to do to enter the presidential race amid “the possibility of Bernie Sanders taking down the Democratic Party — down whole.”

Sitting in the lobby restaurant of the Renaissance Savery hotel, Kerry was overheard by an NBC News analyst saying “maybe I’m f—ing deluding myself here” and explaining that in order to run, he’d have to step down from the board of Bank of America and give up his ability to make paid speeches. Kerry said donors like venture capitalist Doug Hickey would have to “raise a couple of million,” adding that such donors “now have the reality of Bernie.”

Asked about the call later on Sunday, Kerry said that he was “absolutely not” contemplating joining the Democratic primary race. He reiterated this sentiment in a tweet later, saying that “any report otherwise is f—ing (or categorically) false.” Minutes later, he deleted the tweet and reposted it without the expletive.

Yes, friends, the Democrat Party is so utterly bereft of any serious presidential talent that some think John Kerry might be a stronger candidate than Mini-Mike Bloomberg or a rapidly fading Quid Pro Joe.

Speaking of Mini-Mike, President Trump hilariously trolled him with this Sunday morning Tweet:

Now, the President’s statement about Bloomberg’s box negotiation was no doubt true, and it was designed to extract a specific response from Mini-Mike. Predictably, Bloomberg responded within an hour by outright denying that he has any desire to stand on a box or other platform in the coming Democrat debates.

This means that Mini-Mike now has a choice of either proving himself to be an outright liar by going ahead and standing on a box or stool to make himself look as tall as his competitors in the debates, or forego the platform and watch his poll numbers collapse when viewers realize he really is only about 5 feet tall.

There is a reason why only one president in the television era – Jimmy Carter – was less than 6 feet tall. Trump fully understands that, which is why he taunted Mini-Mike with that tweet.

And Bloomberg, every bit as panicked all every other prominent Democrat today, fell for it hook, line and sinker.

This is glorious.

Update: Now CNN has fallen for Trump’s trolling of Bloomberg as well:

You seriously could never make these people up. Never in a million zillion years.

That is all.
