Jump on in, Alec Baldwin, the Water’s Fine!

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

Go for it, dude. – Fading actor and public assault and battery specialist Alec Baldwin took to his Twitter account yesterday (because that’s how all the fading celebrities communicate – right, Alyssa Milano?) and said this:

Yeah, that’s what Hillary Clinton thought, too. But, oh, hell, why not? Why not have an actor who is most famous for impersonating the President run against him? Would he be any less credible than than the assortment of cranks, hacks, and political grifters who are already in the race?

After all, the field already includes a candidate who is most famous for impersonating an Indian, another who thinks he is Spartacus, a senator who got ahead by sleeping around, another senator who is most notable for abusing her staff, a senator from New York who nobody can figure out why in the hell she’s in the race, a loser who wears sheep suits and rides a skateboard onto stage, a Commie who honeymooned at Lenin’s tomb, and a former vice president who can’t keep his hands off of women and children.

Would Alec Baldwin really bring any less credibility to a presidential race than that clown car? I mean, shoot, he did play Jack Ryan in a movie that one time, so he’s got that going for him.

And I haven’t even mentioned Pete Buttigieg yet. Here’s a guy who favors murdering children right up until the moment at which they would be born and even beyond, and he just spent half an interview on “Meet the Press” and much of his speech at something called the LGBTQ Victory Fund National Champagne Brunch questioning the religious beliefs of the sitting President and Vice President of the United States.

Well, isn’t that special? (Some of you baby boomers will get that reference; you Millennials will probably have to Google it.)

As I predicted a few weeks ago, Mr. Buttigieg is the latest media-facilitated “rising star” in Democrat circles, a guy with no real notable political achievements to speak of – other than getting elected to a notable office – but a guy who checks a lot of the demographic boxes favored by the Democrats’ social justice warrior voter base and who looks good on television. He’s probably about to be eclipsed by the looming, very large presence of the next media-facilitated Democrat “rising star”, Stacey Abrams, but for now, he’s da bomb in media circles, the guy all the Sunday shows are dying to have as their guest and all the fake newspapers and magazines like Vanity Fair can’t wait to profile and compare to Kennedys. He should enjoy all the attention while he can.

But wait, there’s more!

Now, we have this Eric Swalwell guy officially running. He made that official announcement on … wait for it… the Late Show with Stephen Colbert! Because of course he did.

Swalwell is a guy who has the maturity level of the average college frat social director – he is Otter from “Animal House” in the flesh.

His entire schtick is to go on CNN and MSNBC and lie about all the proof of Russia Collusion he has seen but can’t talk about in any detail because it’s all like doublesecretprobation and stuff and only he and Adam Schiff have seen it but everyone is supposed to believe him because he’s the social director for the biggest frat of all, the Democrat Party.

*sigh*

If Lorne Michaels and the writers at Saturday Night Live were intent on creating real humor these days rather than tiresome political swill, they’d invite Tim Matheson to guest host and have him do an impression of Eric Swalwell announcing his presidential run standing next to the beer keg at the frat party. Have Stephen Colbert play the Boone character. That would be some funny stuff right there.

But back to Alec Baldwin: He was likely joking with that tweet yesterday, but hey, why wouldn’t he go ahead and jump into this race? After all, it’s already a car filled with clowns, and he’s a professional clown these days, so he’d fit right in.

Kamala would probably even let him call shotgun.

That is all.

Loser Stacey Abrams Personifies the Bizarre Requirement for Democrat Superstardom

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

Qualification Numero Uno: Are you a recent loser? – Tim Ryan, a relatively obscure congressman from Ohio and Eric Swalwell, a disgusting demagogue from California, both entered the swelling field of candidates for the Democrat 2020 presidential nomination this week. Cool, right?

Right. But you don’t need to spend too much time worrying about whether either one will ultimately win the party’s nomination for one simple reason: Neither of them can make a credible claim of being a political loser.

Wait, what? Is that a typo? Am I mainlining rotgut vodka like Chelsea Handler has been doing for the last 30 years? Am I auditioning for a job with CNN by getting it 100% wrong????

Well, no, none of that. I’m dead serious here: It is a simple fact that, in order to be considered to be a serious contender for the 2020 Democrat nomination, a candidate has to first be a fully-certified loser. In fact, being a recent, laughable loser is the quickest way to have our fake news media declare you to be a “superstar.” The Democrat Party and its lapdogs in the fake news media are quite literally obsessed with political loooooooosers, especially recent ones.

Irish Bob O’Rourke, who managed to lose his 2018 senate race to incumbent Ted Cruz despite piling up a 3-to-1 spending advantage, is the most obvious example of this growing phenomenon. The media’s beloved “Beto” has been declared either a “rising star” or “superstar” by pretty much every major fake media outlet in the free world at this point, for no reason other than that he managed to lose fairly closely to his GOP opponent. Well, that and live-streaming his dental appointments on Facebook, which was just so darn cool.

Then there’s the even odder case of Stacey Abrams, the loser in last year’s Georgia gubernatorial race. She managed to lose that race despite a major spending advantage, along with a rampant, blatant voter fraud campaign in her hip pocket. Despite all of that, and despite a slavish news media giving her tens of millions of dollars in free air time and print space, the final count showed her coming up more than 50,000 votes short. There just weren’t enough cemetery, prison or illegal alien voters in all of Georgia to close that gap.

So, what has she done in response? Why, she’s taken a page out of the Pantsuit Princess’s book of political projection, accusing her opponent of being the one who was stealing votes, refusing to accept the outcome of the race, and declaring herself to be the rightful governor of Georgia, a claim literally no one actually believes but corrupt media hacks glowingly support.

Don’t believe me? Here’s how MSNBC’s bigot host Joy Ann Reid let her Twitter audience know Abrams would be her guest on her Sunday morning show:

She’s not just another failed politician who’s never won a race above the state representative level: She’s a “superstar”!

See what I’m getting at here? Indeed, Abrams is such a darn “superstar” that there is rampant chatter in Democrat and media circles (but I repeat myself) that she is probably going to mount her own presidential campaign. Because, hey, why not?

You just can’t make this stuff up, folks.

Why not, indeed? Abrams likely sits in her extremely roomy living room easy chair, perusing the latest Democrat presidential polls and thinks “geez, all these people are losers, too, so why not me?”

Look who’s leading those polls:

Joe Biden – two-time miserable looooser in Democrat presidential politics;

The Commie – loooooser to the Pantsuit Princess in the rigged primaries of 2016;

Irish Bob O’Rourke – last year’s most famous loser, running a weak third to the Commie;

Kamala Harris – such a looooser that she had to carry on a years-long affair with Willie Brown in order to advance her career;

Those four loooosers are combining to hog 70% of the support in the current RealClearPolitics average of Democrat polls. The rest of the field, consisting almost exclusively of politicians who have never lost a political race in their lives, are left to scramble for the remaining 30%.

This is reality.

So, when you see reports indicating that a miserable political looooser like Stacey Abrams is considered to be a “superstar” in Democrat/media circles, don’t laugh, because these people are deadly serious. They are obsessed with such losers, and it’s a safe bet that it’s just a matter of time before the failure from Georgia enters the race.

Republicans everywhere should rejoice.

That is all.

The Week in Review: The Perils of Biden and AOC

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

[The week just past as chronicled on the @GDBlackmon Twitter feed.]

The week began with AOC getting history wrong – because she always gets history wrong – and just went downhill from there.:

A parade of women had just started to emerge from the closet to complain about Creepy Joe Biden’s fondling of them, but the reliable lapdogs at the Washington Post were already on the job providing cover for him.:

On Monday, AOC kept herself busy surveying the price of food at La Guardia Airport while waiting to fly on a carbon-spewing airliner – you know, the kind of thing she plans to eliminate with her Green New Deal. (Hint: She got the price of the pastry every bit as wrong as she got the history of the 25th Amendment.):

As the second woman came forward to complain about Creepy Joe Biden, it wasn’t real hard to predict what was still to come.:

It was April 1, and our erstwhile ex-FBI Director and current Teenage Drama Queen thought he would play an incredibly narcissistic practical joke. Nobody laughed.:

Robert Wilson posted a fantastic graphic here. Note the expansion of that natural gas line over the last 15 years – it’s why your air is so much cleaner today than it was 25 years ago.  Fracking says, “You’re welcome, America!”:

As President Donald Trump threatened to close the southern border with Mexico due to the ongoing invasion from Central America, our nation’s fake news media focused on what was really, really, really important to vegans and snowflake freaks everywhere.:

The hypocrisy of the lunatic left, part 29,282.:

With the Mueller report issued and exonerating President Trump, the evil minions at CNN found their already-terrible ratings in free fall. How would this cable joke survive without the captive audiences in our nation’s airports?:

Cool. No use wasting any time.:

While women continued to come forward to complain about his handsy habits, Joe Biden continued to get a free pass from the fake news media related to his real scandal.:

Meanwhile, the news-fakers over at CBS News were working diligently to paint human traffickers in a glowing light. You seriously cannot overstate that a raging dumpster fire our national news media truly is.:

So…damn…awesome.:

So. Damn. Awesome, Part II from the same speech.:

It’s a clown car. Literally, a car filled with circus clowns, led by Jabba the Nadler.:

Can you blame her?:

What in the hell is wrong with Sen. Mike Lee that he would vote against this? You can’t write it off to his supposed Libertarian “principles,” since the filibuster rule was enacted in the 1830s by racist southern Democrat slave owners as a means of preventing the senate from abolishing slavery. The crap this guy and Rand Paul pull on big votes like this is maddening.:

If you don’t follow the hilarious Babylon Bee on Twitter, you are really missing out on the fun.:

No comment necessary.:

And, as Wednesday drew to a close, the news fakers at the New York Times did their duty to support the Democrat narrative by rolling out yet another heinously fake story. Because of course they did.:

Speaking of the New York times, its’ fake “journalists” need to broaden their horizons.:

Oh, hey, we’re up to seven now…:

Despite all the media disinformation and misinformation, the Trump 2020 landslide kept building …:

…and building…:

…and building.:

You go first, Jake.:

Just when you thought the Democrat 2020 presidential field could not get any worse, the most disgraceful pathological liar in congress proves you wrong.:

Now, if we could just ban the U.S. media from covering the British royal family…:

Seriously, where have these news fakers been?:

Look up the word “slimy” in your Funk & Wagnall’s dictionary, and you’ll find a photo of this guy next to it.:

The perfect Twitter meme…:

The perfect Twitter video meme…:

…and I’m just going to end it with this.:

That is all.

Joe Biden Would be the Democrats’ Weakest Possible Nominee

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

Tired of all this #WINNING yet? – The fake news media pretty much ignored the story, but U.S. weekly unemployment claims fell to their lowest point since the records began being kept half a century ago last week. The Trump economy is so strong that even Sears, which has been shuttering outlets since the Carter Administration, is opening new stores again.

The ADP private sector jobs report showed only 129,000 new jobs being created in March, but that low number is largely due to the fact that there are more than 1,000,000 more job openings today than there are unemployed workers. Given that, we can expect the government’s non-farm payroll report to be issued this morning to also come in with a low number. [Note: The BLS jobs report actually came in at a very strong 196,000, beating expectations once again.]

All of which ties back to the reality that the biggest problem we have in Trump’s economy is finding enough qualified workers to fill all the jobs being created. That’s a good problem to have.

He’s experienced, maybe too much so. – One of the things supporters of Joe Biden point to when making their case for why he’d make the best nominee for the Democrats in 2020 is that he’s experienced, and he certainly is. Biden was first elected to the U.S. Senate in 1972 at the age of 29.

During his first term in the Senate, he served with such blasts from the past as J. William Fulbright, Sam Ervin, George McGovern, Frank Church, Russell Long, and 1968 Democrat presidential nominee Hubert Humphrey. Fulbright was first elected to the Senate in 1945, Ervin in 1954.

But, while long years of experience in national government may be a positive for Biden in his run against an assortment of no-accounts in his party’s primaries, is not necessarily an advantage in a general election against Donald Trump, who was elected in 2016 over another “experienced” candidate specifically because he was an outsider.

Indeed, since Biden first came to Washington, the American people have shown a very strong bias against electing “experienced” guys like him to serve in the presidency.

Going back to the 1976 election, here is how many years’ experience in Washington DC our past seven presidents had when they got elected:

Jimmy Carter – 0

Ronald Reagan – 0

George H.W. Bush – roughly 20

Bill Clinton – 0

George W. Bush – 0

Barack Obama – 2

Donald Trump – 0

Combined, those seven presidents had about 22 years’ total experience in the DC Swamp, with Bush 41 having almost all of them. Bush 41, as we all remember, was defeated in 1992 by an outsider, Bill Clinton, who got a big assist from an even more authentic outsider, Ross Perot.

Are you seeing a trend here? I am.

Biden will no doubt be running as the guy who would bring us the third term of America’s Worst Mistake, Barack Hussein Obama, for whom he served as Vice President. Oh, hey, didn’t the Pantsuit Princess, who served as Obama’s Secretary of State, already try that one? How’d that work out for you, Democrats?

But what other reason would the American people have for electing Biden to the presidency? It certainly wouldn’t be based on his senate record, where he was wrong about literally every major issue our country has faced over the last 46 years. It couldn’t be based on all of his achievements as Vice President since, like every Veep, he didn’t accomplish a damn thing while serving in that office.

It definitely wouldn’t be based on his comparative youth and vigor, since Biden will be older on Election Day, 2020 than our oldest previous serving President, Ronald Reagan, was on the day he left office after serving two full terms. When you really get right down to it, the only real reason why Biden appears to want to run is that he regrets not running in 2016, when he reasonably should have, and now thinks it is “his turn” to be the Democrat Party’s nominee.

Nominating anyone because it is their “turn”, lacking any other compelling reason for doing so, almost never works out for either party in modern times. Let’s go back to 1976 again and take a look at those results:

1976 – Gerald Ford (Loss)

1980 – Jimmy Carter (Landslide Loss)

1984 – Walter Mondale (Record Landslide Loss)

1988 – Bush 41 (Won, became a one-term POTUS)

1996 – Bob Dole (Landslide Loss)

2000 – Al Gore (Loss)

2004 – John Kerry (Loss)

2008 – John McCain (Miserable Loss)

2012 – Mitt Romney (Loss)

2016 – Pantsuit Princess (Loss)

Look at those results. In all that time, the only “it’s my turn” candidate who was nominated by either party and actually won the election was George Herbert Walker Bush, and he only won because he was carried into office on the enormous coattails of Ronaldus Magnus. When left to run on his own devices after four years of deviating from the Reagan agenda and raising taxes, he also suffered a miserable defeat.

Joe Biden will most likely not go onto become the Democrat nominee in 2020 – I’m frankly still not convinced he’s even going to make a go of it, with all of these women still coming out of the woodwork to complain about his handsy habits.

But if he does get the nomination, Donald Trump and all of his supporters should celebrate.

That is all.

The Long Knives Come Out for Creepy Joe Biden – But Whose Knives?

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

Ok, it’s official, the long knives are out for Creepy Uncle Joe. But who’s controlling the knives? – When you are leading the horse race polls for the Democrat Party presidential nomination and the news-faking Democrat activist lapdogs at the New York Times start going after you, you know that someone else in your own party is coordinating the effort to take you out. For Joe Biden, the question at this point is who?

On Tuesday the Times ran a report detailing not one, but two more women who have come forward to make complaints about the ex-Veep’s well-known habit of getting more than a little handsy with women and children at public events. One woman, who was 19 at the time, said the then-Vice President placed his hand on her thigh while the two were seated on stage next to one another and did not have the sense to remove it despite her visible discomfort.  The other, 59 at the time, said Biden initially placed his hand on her shoulder and then began slowly moving it down her back before her husband saw what was happening and interrupted things by telling a joke.

The Times piece is careful to note that neither woman is accusing good ol’ Joe of “harassment” – not exactly, anyway – and to include remarks from women who are supporting the candidate’s preferred narrative that he’s just a harmless old guy who means no harm. It’s key to note that all such women who have come forth with such supporting remarks so far – from Mika to Whoopi to Ash Carter’s wife to Mazie Hirono to Meghan McCain – are part of the political ruling class in our country, and members of that class pretty much always stick together in times such as this.

But will this counteroffensive by the Biden camp work? Because what began on Friday as a single accusation is quickly turning into a flood, and the more women who’ve been groped by Biden come forward, the more will likely feel emboldened to do the same.

And let’s be honest, there are many, many more waiting in the wings. It is not like any of this is “new” news. Here’s what I wrote about Biden’s problematic past back in November, 2017:

  • As rumors of handsy ol’ Joe Biden’s plans to run for the presidency for a third time in 2020 continue to swirl, leftwingers everywhere are getting very nervous about the fact that there are literally hours upon hours of video out there in the public domain of the former Veep inappropriately putting his hands on women and girls and invading their space.  As liberal heroes all over the country, like Harvey Weinstein, Kevin Spacey and Al Franken are revealed to be horrific sexual harassers, it is becoming quite obvious that a Biden run for the presidency would be like manna from heaven for the Republican Party.
  • Even the near-terminal nitwits who run the ultra-leftwing online fake news site, the Huffington Post, are waking up to this uncomfortable reality.  And when the HuffPo is waking up to inconvenient truths about the left, that means pretty much everyone else already has, since the folks at the HuffPo are very slow learners.  On Saturday, Amanda Terkel, the fake news site’s Washington Bureau Chief, published a very long expose’ on Handsy Joe’s history of publicly groping women, saying  that “From former Fox News host Bill O’Reilly to producer Harvey Weinstein to comedian Louis C.K., men are losing their jobs after years of having sexually harassed or assaulted women with impunity.  Biden is the wrong guy to bear the standard of any party purporting to speak for the victims of unaccountable power.”  Well, yeah.  So good of you to notice, at long last.

Indeed, it isn’t just the Democrat lapdogs at the Times who are rushing to publish butt-covering pieces critical of Biden’s behavior, present and past – they’re suddenly popping up all over the place. In its own CYA piece, The Atlantic also notes that this is nothing new:

In one way, the allegations against Biden are shocking. In another way, though, they are precisely the opposite. Flores and Lappos have accused Biden, after all, of engaging in exactly the kind of behavior that he has been repeatedly documented engaging in, over a period of years, through file photos and C-SPAN footage and the other media that steadily help to convert American politicians into American celebrities. Gawker, in early 2015, published an image essay taxonomizing the varied ways Biden has been photographed interacting—closely and intimately and publicly—with women and girls. So did New YorkmagazineThe Daily Show offered a video-based version of the same: “The Audacity of Grope,” the segment was called. (It featured documentary footage of Biden engaged in assorted acts of woman-whispering, and culminated in Samantha Bee, the show’s fake White House correspondent at the time, appearing with the front of her blouse and the back of her skirt marked with handprints. She had just come from a meeting, Bee explained to Jon Stewart, with the then vice president.)

The Biden camp is out there now accusing the Bernie Sanders campaign of putting all these women up to coming out en masse, based solely on the fact that the initial accuser, Nevada political activist Lucy Flores, formerly worked for the Sanders campaign. But is that really what is going on here? Maybe, but given the diversity of those complaining thus far, it seems doubtful. While it certainly would not be in any way unusual for the Commie and Flores to have coordinated the initial complaint, the three other women who have thus far come forward do not appear to have any affiliation with the Sanders camp.

Another possibility is that this is all an “inoculation” effort coordinated by Biden’s own camp. It could be an attempt to get several accusations out there into the public domain by “complainers” rather than “accusers.” It is interesting to note that all four of these women have been very careful not to accuse Biden of trying anything sexual with them, supporting the “harmless old man” narrative preferred by the Biden camp and parrotted in most of the fake news media stories so far. The four complaints thus far have given Biden a chance to appear gracious and almost even thoughtful – to the extent the insufferable doofus Biden is capable of being “thoughtful” –  in his responses, and could help to inoculate him against more damaging accusations that might arise in the future.

Or it could be just an organic thing, an almost inevitable outcome created by the ham-handed behavior of a man who has been doing all of this in front of filming cameras for almost half a century now. As the Times story notes, the societal norms have shifted beneath Biden’s feet over the decades, and behavior that might have been written off decades ago as just a harmless old man expressing affection in an obnoxious way can no longer be written off so easily.

Any of the three possibilities seem equally likely, and I frankly don’t care. This was all going to become a problem for Creepy Uncle Joe sooner or later, and the only surprising thing about any of it is that anyone is actually surprised at all.

That is all.

Mika, Whoopi – Believe the Women!!!! Wait, no, NOT THOSE WOMEN!!!!!

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

All you #MeToo warriors must feel like complete dopes this morning.  – This was as predictable as it is repugnant: The parade of leftist women who have spent the last year and a half screaming that all women who make accusations of sexual harassment and assault must – must, they say – be believed out of hand are now coming out of the woodwork to say, “Hey, we didn’t mean THOSE women!” Meaning, of course, any woman who dares to make the #MeToo claim about the frontrunner for the Democrat 2020 presidential nomination, Crazy Uncle Joe Biden.

Mika WhatshernamethatIcanneverspellright had her personal coming out as an anti-#MeToo activist on Monday’s “Morning Joe,” saying this about the ex-Vice President:

“There’s a lot of things I know about Joe Biden. I’ve known him for a long time,” Brzezinski stated. “He is extremely affectionate, extremely flirtatious in a completely safe way. I am sure that somebody can misconstrue something he’s done, but as much as I can know what’s in anyone’s heart, I don’t think that there’s a bad intent on his part at all.”

Don’t you just love that phrase, “extremely flirtatious in a completely safe way”? Do you think Morning Mika would have ever in a million years given two seconds’ thought about applying it to any politician with an “R” next to his name? Please.

Never to be outdone in the realm of sucking up to Democrats on national television, never-funny failed comic Whoopi Goldberg used her seat on “The View” to go even further than Morning Mika, saying “I don’t want Joe to stop doing that,” meaning Biden’s habit of placing his hands on women’s shoulders, sniffing their hair and whispering sweet nothings into their ears.

Goldberg went further, attacking Biden’s first accuser, Nevada #MeToo warrior Lucy Flores:

“Joe is a hands-on kind of guy. I’ve never heard anyone—she says she felt violated. I have to take her at her word. But it would have been nice if she turned to him and say, ‘You know what, I don’t really like this. Please don’t do this, Mr. Vice President. I’m not comfortable with this.’ Something, because he’s standing right there.”

Why, it’s just Uncle Joe, Lucy! He’s just an innocent, “hands-on kind of guy” and you need to either tolerate that or chastise the Vice President of the United States (Biden assaulted Flores in 2014) right there to his face! Don’t worry about those Secret Service guys with bulging jackets hiding their .44 magnums – you just get up in the Veep’s face!”

Try to imagine how Whoopi and all the other shrieking SJWs would have reacted had a male host of any television program said that about any #MeToo accuser. That guy would have been out of job in about 30 seconds, yanked off the set by ABC’s management before the show ended.

But it’s Whoopi, attacking a powerless woman who is pointing a finger at a prominent Democrat, so that’s ok.

As Former Democratic Aide Amy Lappos came forward with her own accusations about Biden’s “extremely flirtatious in a very safe way” habit of assaulting women at public events, other prominent Dems were rushing to the Party Patriarch’s defense. Despicable Illinois Senator Dick Durbin said Biden’s actions were “not disqualifying,” while ex-Senator from the same state Carol Mosely Braun called Biden “a man who spent his life being nice to people,” something that no #MeToo activist anywhere has ever said was a valid excuse for Biden’s type of unwanted advances.

Lappos accuses Biden thusly:

“He put his hand around my neck and pulled me in to rub noses with me,” she told the Hartford Courant, recounting their meeting at a 2009 fundraiser. “When he was pulling me in, I thought he was going to kiss me on the mouth.”

Oh, hey, Amy, that’s just sweet, non-threatening ol’ Joe being nice to people. What, you don’t like Eskimo kisses? Are you a racist or something?

Other Biden defenders attacked Flores directly. Rick Wilson attacked her for actually being prepared for the interview in which she made her accusation, saying “As somebody who’s done a hell of a lot of media training I can tell when somebody’s been [prepped] for an interview to within an inch of their life.” Uh, ok.

Randi Weingarten, President of a major teachers union, tweeted “I just hope it’s not true that Flores was prompted to write her essay because of her work with Bernie campaign.” See, you just can’t believe those women; you know, women who worked for Bernie. Wink, wink.

See how this works?

Flores responded to Weingarten’s absurd taunt by noting she hasn’t endorse Sanders or anyone else in the race, and then pointed out that, given the immense wealth of evidence of Biden’s poor behavior towards women that exists in the public domain, “this should have been addressed long ago.”

Bingo.

So, why hasn’t that reckoning happened until now? Lappos answered that one quite succinctly: “I never filed a complaint, to be honest, because he was the vice president. I was a nobody.”

Bingo again.

See, sexual assault is all about power, and Biden, first as a prominent Democrat Senator who was always “nice to people” in Mosely-Braun’s words, and then as Barack Hussein Obama’s Vice President, always had the power.

This is exactly, precisely the very situation that the #MeToo movement and those who, like Mika and Whoopi have pretended to speak for it, was supposed to address. But when push comes to shove, and the guy being accused happens to be the Democrat frontrunner, well, don’t bother these people with silly things like principles and intellectual honesty, and least of all, believing the women.

Not those women.

That is all.

Uncle Joe’s Creepiness Comes Back to Haunt Him

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

Uncle Joe’s creepiness comes back to haunt him – and this is just the beginning.  – The fake news media will do its dead-level best to kill this story, but it’s out there now, and there are lots more just like it.

In case you get your “news” from one of the major broadcast networks and missed it, a former Nevada assemblywoman and Democrat #MeToo activist, Lucy Flores, is accusing Creepy Joe Biden of groping and kissing her at a campaign event in 2014. Here is how she describes the incident:

“I was taking deep breaths and preparing myself to make my case to the crowd, I felt two hands on my shoulders. I froze. “Why is the vice-president of the United States touching me?” I felt him get closer to me from behind. He leaned further in and inhaled my hair. I was mortified. I thought to myself, “I didn’t wash my hair today and the vice-president of the United States is smelling it. And also, what in the actual f*ck? Why is the vice-president of the United States smelling my hair?” He proceeded to plant a big slow kiss on the back of my head. My brain couldn’t process what was happening. I was embarrassed. I was shocked. I was confused. There is a Spanish saying, “tragame tierra,” it means, “earth, swallow me whole.” I couldn’t move and I couldn’t say anything. I wanted nothing more than to get Biden away from me. My name was called and I was never happier to get on stage in front of an audience.”

The truth, of course, is that Biden has made a habit of such inappropriate groping of women, girls and small children at public events throughout his political career. There are literally dozens of video clips of such incidents, with women and children visibly cringing as Biden puts his hands on them, snuggles into their hair and even kisses them right there on stage for all to see.

Biden’s supporters – which includes the preponderance of our fake news media, of course – have spent the last 40 years claiming it’s all fine, that Biden is somehow harmless, and that the women and kids really are enjoying it all. And of course, as they had been groped by a powerful senator and then vice president, the gropees have been reluctant to complain.

But times are changing, and social justice warriors like Ms. Flores are not going to just sit by quietly and take this sort of abuse.

We also have stories out there in the public domain about Biden making a habit of taking nude midnight swims in front of secret service agents, some of them women.

Again, the fake news media will do all it can to keep covering for Creepy Uncle Joe, but that is going to be far, far harder to do in today’s social media-dominated world.

All of which may be one of the reasons why the guy who is leading the Democrat polls is taking so long to formally announce his campaign. There’s a lot to try to explain away here, and the elderly ex-VP may not be up to that job.

That is all.

Six More Years of “President Donald Trump”? Magic 8-ball says “Most Likely”

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

Hey, when he’s right, he’s right.  – At a rally in Michigan last night, President Donald Trump (I never tire of typing those three glorious words) put the exact right label on the Democrats’ refusal to drop the whole Russia Collusion fantasy in the wake of the end of the Mueller “investigation,” referring to their ongoing propaganda campaign as “ridiculous bullshit.”

Here’s the full quote:

“The Democrats have to now decide whether they will continue defrauding the public with ridiculous bullshit, partisan investigations, or whether they will apologize to the American people and join us to rebuild our crumbling infrastructure, bring down the cost of health care and prescription drugs … help us fix our broken trade deals,” he said to the crowd.

Be honest:  One of the things that makes you a little bit uncomfortable about President Trump is that he so often expresses exactly what you were thinking but were reluctant to blurt out yourself. Coming as I do from a family of Texas over-cussers, I can think of no better way to describe the ongoing behavior of Democrats like Adam Schiff, Jabba the Nadler, Irish Bob O’Rourke and Eric Swalwell than to call it “ridiculous bullshit.” Because that’s what it is.

Personally, I appreciate the President for going ahead and saying it so I would feel justified myself repeating it several times in this morning’s Campaign Update. Because it is ridiculous bullshit – it just is.

Speaking of Trump’s rally in Michigan… – Democrats who poo-poo the President’s rallies as being insignificant are quite frankly whistling past the graveyard. Yesterday’s rally in Grand Rapids – a city of less than 200,000 – attracted more than 32,000 people. At one point, the line waiting to get into the Van Andel Arena stretched for more than a mile. As usual, the thousands who could not gain admittance into the facility stood outside and watched on giant TV screens.

This is not a one-time fluke – this happens over and over and over again at every rally the President holds. The Democrats and their fake news media flunkies want you to believe that this is a very unpopular POTUS, but his 50% approval rating in the Rasmussen survey tells another story, and his average public approval rating is higher than Ronald Reagan’s was at this point in his first term in office.

An unpopular, failing president would have a hard time attracting major crowds like this one. But these rallies have actually grown larger and more intense over time, not less so. Just as with the big Obama rallies in 2008, they are in fact a harbinger of a very strong candidate, an incumbent whose re-election chances are growing stronger by the day.

I don’t like to hyper-focus on polls since they are so unreliable, but the new Quinnipiac poll out this week it a good indicator of what an uphill climb the Democrats truly have in 2020. Here’s a link to The Hill’s report on this poll.

First, as The Hill notes in its blaring headline, Pete Buttigieg has “surged”, now getting 4% support in the Democrat horse race. Second, Fauxcahontas is mired way down in a tie with the 37 year-old mayor of South Bend, IN. Ouch. Things are just not working out for Little Mouth Always Running, are they?

Third, Irish Bob O’Rourke has very predictably moved past a fading Kamala Harris to capture 3rd place, pulling 12% to Harris’s 8%. Fourth, Creepy Joe Biden now holds a 10-point lead over the Commie at 29-19.

None of those results are in any way surprising to anyone who has been paying attention to the dynamics of this race, which is admittedly still in its very early stages.  Harris has thus far been a stumbling, bumbling disaster of a candidate, a prime example of someone whose time in the public spotlight came well before she was ready for it.

The Commie has his base of support, but finds it getting peeled away by all the other commies in the race, like Buttigieg, for example. It’s like he’s dying a death by a thousand cuts, as all the other craven candidates keep stealing his issues and policy positions.

Biden hasn’t even formally announced his candidacy yet, but continues to attract fairly strong early support on name recognition and his association with Obama. That Obama-glow will steadily wear away as the race goes on, and we will probably see “Peak Biden” as his polls surge in the week after his formal announcement, and then slowly but steadily fade as the long race drags on and the demented Democrat voter base wake up to who he really is.

So, none of that is any surprise at all.  But here is what is a surprise buried deep in the bowels of this poll:

Just 57% of the self-identified Democrats and Democrat-leaning registered voters polled in this survey say they will not vote for President Trump regardless of who the Democrat nominee is in 2020. That is an extraordinarily low percentage from this segment of society, meaning as it does that fully 43% of “Democrats and Democrat-leaning registered voters” are open to the idea of a second Trump term in office.

Ooof.

Get used to saying President Donald Trump, Democrats, because you most likely have 6 more years to do so.

That is all.

The Week in Review: Mueller Delivers a Dud, Democrat Hopes Deflate

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

The Week in Review, courtesy of the @GDBlackmon Twitter Feed…

The week began with the @GOP celebrating St. Patrick’s Day in the most appropriate means possible, with a meme featuring the mug shot of everyone’s favorite El Paso Irishman. Things only got funnier and better from there, believe it or not.:

Rob Christie posts some of the funniest short videos on the Twitter platform. I thought this one was totes awesome.:

After more proof of John McCain’s mendacity in the spreading of the fake Trump Dossier emerged, Donald Trump was being criticized for lashing out at the dead Senator. Not surprisingly, I thought the President’s outrage was completely justified.:

Meanwhile, our next future president from Texas was hilariously lamenting NYU’s hiring of yet another radical leftist activist onto its faculty, which now rivals Harvard’s as the last American bastion of Soviet-style Marxism.:

Is anyone surprised that Dan Rather, the literal inventor of #fakenews, now turns up regularly as a contributor on CNN?:

On Monday, we learned that Fox News had hired Clinton toady Donna Brazile on as a paid contributor. Lanny Davis and Paul Begala were already tied up by CNN, so…:

The very entertaining Larry Schweikart noted a poll that turned out to be a bit of foreshadowing…:

Speaking of foreshadowing, James Woods hits this nail right square on the head.:

Things are not looking up for the presidential aspirations of Mayor Meatless Mondays…:

What do they put in the drinking water up there in the Bronx?:

This is 100% true and cannot be repeated often enough.:

Fauxcahontas was down in Mississippi interfering in another state’s business. Because of course she was.:

This guy should avoid trying to debate the merits of the Electoral College with the great Nick Searcy.:

If this bit of news about Irish Bob surprises you, you haven’t been paying attention. After all, later in the week we found out he fed his child’s poop to his wife as a practical joke. I’m thinking she probably was not amused.:

I’m pretty sure the TSA agent in this disgusting video is Joe Biden in a fat suit.:

Speaking of guys in a fat suit, I give you Kellyanne Conway’s husband, George. Oh, wait, that’s not a fat suit at all, is it?:

This was the only proper culmination for Nick Cage’s amazing career. He should announce his retirement immediately after the movie premieres.”

I’m not a fan of #NeverTrump nitwit Bill Kristol. Can you tell?:

Larry Schweikart does a great job of keeping up with special election results around the country. The Democrats’ rapid lurch to the far, far, far, lunatic left is creating a mini-wave for the GOP this year.:

We interrupt our politics to bring you wonderful news from America’s oil and gas industry.:

I’m not sure either of them is actually sentient.:

George Orwell was a London citizen when he wrote his famous book, “1984”. In today’s London, Orwell’s book would be banned as hate speech and he’d be tossed in prison for writing it.:

Irish Bob O’Rourke isn’t the only political loser who Democrats are obsessed with these days. Stacey Abrams is giving him a strong run for his money.:

Every once in awhile, the #fakenews hacks at Politico get something right.:

It seems like every week along about Thursday I get real tired of Jim Acosta’s crap. This week was no different.:

If you see some guy in a sheep suit seated at the Pai Gow table, eating dirt, that’s Irish Bob.:

When Greg Budell asked a very good question about the lack of coverage in the U.S. news media about America’s final defeat of ISIS, I had the right answer.:

You seriously cannot make these fake news people up.:

This cracked me up.:

As perhaps the world’s most avid fan of the film “Three Amigos” – which is the funniest script ever written – I have to give @Solmemes1 the award for greatest Twitter meme ever.:

Communists are so predictable.:

This bit of economic winning went largely unreported by our fake news media, but is a very key leading indicator of good things to come.:

Sorry. I just couldn’t resist.:

It’s true. And I won.:

Well, that was totally unexpected! said no one anywhere.:

Shameless self-promotion alert! – Robert Mueller sent his final report over to AG William Barr at 5:00 on Friday evening. 37 minutes later, I posted this sage analysis about what to expect next.:

Oh, it’s a joke, all right. A walking, talking, unshaven buffoon of a joke.:

This said it all about @BillKristol.:

This said it all as well.:

When will everyone wake up to the reality that most of these people are in fact themselves child molesters?:

MSNBC’s resident conspiracy theorist Rachel Maddow literally wept on live TV when she learned Mueller had found no evidence supporting the “Russia Collusion” fantasy she has promoted for the last two years.:

Well, they were never to be trusted before, either, so…:

Over at CNN, Brian Stelter was highly disappointed.:

The great James Woods offered the perfect capper to a wonderful week.:

That is all.
