About that Nervous Nancy…

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

A killshot for the ages. – Don’t look now, but President Donald Trump has leveled what is going to be a very, very effective killshot at Nancy Pelosi. He tagged her with it during yesterday’s interview with Fox’s Laura Ingraham, and followed it up this morning with this pair of tweets:

“Nervous Nancy.” How perfect is that? Think about it: What political figure are you familiar with who appears to be more constantly, overtly nervous than San Fran Nan?

Here’s a great example from the 2018 State of the Union address – watch her working her mouth so nervously that it looks like she has a gerbil running around in there:

Or how about this video of her stammering and fidgeting through a typical press availability?:

This could go on and on, because these are very typical public performances by the doddering Speaker.

So, the first requirement of an effective killshot – that it is accurate and cannot be proven to be untrue – is firmly in place.

The next requirement – equally important here – is that the killshot be something about which the target will become self-conscious. Pelosi is already so self-conscious about her fidgety, stammering, speech-slurring public appearance that she and her media allies just spent an entire week attempting to get Facebook to ban one video of her on the utterly false claim that it was “doctored.”

Trump’s tagging her with the “Nervous Nancy” nickname will inevitably result in Pelosi becoming extremely self-conscious about controlling her myriad nervous tics, most likely to such a point that they will only become even more self-evident. The new nickname will just as inevitably cause Pelosi’s target audiences – the fake news media and the public – to pay close attention to her tics and comment on them.

Back in mid-March, the President issued a killshot on Irish Bob O’Rourke, as follows:

“Well, I think he’s got a lot of hand movement. I’ve never seen so much hand movement. I said, ‘Is he crazy or is that just the way he acts?’” Trump said at the White House. “I watched him a little while this morning, during I assume it was some kind of a news conference, and I’ve actually never seen anything quite like it.”

That one was so immediately effective that Irish Bob was filmed the very next day answering a reporter’s questions with his normally-waving arms seemingly glued to his sides. O’Rourke has basically never recovered, as his poll numbers have fallen from around 10% support to about 3% in the wake of the killshot. The President didn’t tag him with a nickname, but his remarks about Irish Bob caused the public to take notice of just how weird and un-serious he truly is.

During the 2016 GOP nominating process, we saw the very same process take place with “Little Marco” Rubio, Jeb! “Low Energy” Bush, “Annoying” John Kasich, and others. The “Lyin’ Ted” Cruz moniker was not nearly so effective given Cruz is most often demonstrably not lying, but by the time Trump tagged him with that nickname he was so far ahead in the race that he didn’t need a killshot related to Cruz in any event.

“Nervous Nancy” has all the hallmarks of being an immediately effective, potentially devastating killshot, mainly because Nancy is indeed extremely nervous pretty much all the time, and has no real means of demonstrating otherwise. I’m betting it will be so effective in quickly diminishing Pelosi’s public credibility that even members of her own caucus in the House will be remarking on the Speaker’s nervousness within a few weeks.

Won’t that be fun?

That is all.

The Sinaloa Cartel, CNN or MSNBC: Which Organization is More Despicable?

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Hey, when it comes to paying bribes, El Chapo don’t mess around. – A witness in the trial of El Chapo told the judge and jury that the infamous (Ah, Dusty! In-famous is when you’re more than famous! This guy El [Chapo] is not just famous, he’s IN-famous!” – Ned Neiderlander, from Three Amigos) drug lord paid former Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto a bribe of …wait for it…$100 MILLION in 2012.

I swear I don’t make this stuff up.

The witness, a fellow named Alex Cifuentes, who worked at the time as El Chapo’s “secretary”, whatever that means within a brutally violent drug cartel, further informed the jury that Pena Nieto was apparently disappointed in the amount of the bribe, since the then-President had originally demanded the princely sum of $250 million.  Holy crap.

In his opening statement in the case last November, El Chapo’s lawyer, Alex Lichtman, had alleged that Pena Nieto’s predecessor on office, Felipe Calderon, was also taking massive bribes from the Sinaloa Cartel.

In all fairness to the former presidents of Mexico, Cifuentes is not exactly what one would call a “reliable” witness – he’s just a guy reciting a narrative that he thinks is to his advantage. Some of what he says may be true, but to the extent that’s the case, he’s only saying it to advance his narrative.

However, isn’t the real problem here that, given everything we know about how the drug cartels dominate vast swaths of the failed state at our southern border, his testimony sounds totally believable?

Why yes, yes that is exactly the problem.

And speaking of utterly corrupt organizations… – Meanwhile, over at MSNBC and CNN, Tuesday was a big day.  It began with the news that CNN, the reigning king of news-fakery on the planet, had landed the big annoying fish.

Yes, friends, if you thought it would be impossible for CNN to become any more annoying and tedious than it already is, well, think again, because yesterday the fake news network signed former Ohio Governor and son-of-a-postal-worker John Kasich to be a “senior policy analyst” going forward. The fake news organization announced that Kaisch will be a contributor on several different shows across its fake platform every day, which means viewers of all ages, genders, ethnicities and sleeping habits will now be treated to incisive commentary like the following:

“Why, my dad was a postal worker…”

“When I was governor of Ohio – hey, didja know I was governor of Ohio? – well, when I was governor of Ohio…”

“Hey, that 70% tax rate that Alexandria Ocasio Cortez is proposing is perfectly in line with true conservative values…”

“You know, my dad was a postman – didja know that? – well, he was, and because of that I vetoed that bill…”

“Those of us who were raised by postal workers know that walls don’t work…”

*sigh*

[Disclaimer: Like Mr. Kasich, my own father had a career in the U.S. Postal Service, which is good and honest work that anyone should be proud of doing. Unlike Mr. Kasich, I don’t feel the need to bring that fact up every time I try to make a point.]

Shortly after that very unexciting announcement was made, another CNN “analyst” – being an “analyst” on CNN is sort of like being a “secretary” in a Mexican drug cartel – named Areva Martin made big news on social media by accusing conservative Sirius XM radio talk show host David Webb of benefiting from “white privilege”.  Webb’s response was possibly the funniest moment of the entire day.  Here’s the exchange:

“That’s a whole ‘nother long conversation about white privilege, the things that you have the privilege of doing, that people of color don’t have the privilege of,” said guest Martin.

Confused, Webb asked, “How do I have the privilege of white privilege?”

“David… by virtue of being a white male you have white privilege,” Martin began, when Webb interjected:

“Areva, I hate to break it to you, but you should’ve been better prepped. I’m black.”

D’oh! What a totally CNN moment that is, right?

But hey, never let it be said that the sleazy dimwits who infest MSNBC can be outdone by CNN when it comes to on-air despicability. MSNBC fake “news” anchor Stephanie Ruhle got into a discussion with former Florida congressman David Jolly – one of MSNBC’s pretend “Republican” conributors – about South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham, and the following exchange ensued:

“Before Don got elected, Lindsey Graham called Donald Trump a racist, xenophobic bigot. Those are Lindsey Graham’s words,” Jolly said. “I doubt Lindsey Graham could tell you Donald Trump has had a change of heart in the last 24 months, I bet the change of heart has been with Lindsey Graham, not the president.”

“Or it could be that Donald Trump or somebody knows something pretty extreme about Lindsey Graham,” Ruhle replied. “We’re gonna have to leave it there.”

Yes, friends, you read that right: MSNBC “anchors” are now going on-air and accusing the President of the United States, without evidence, of blackmailing a United States Senator.

Just like El Chapo’s secretary, Ms. Ruhle and Ms. Martin are just parrots reciting their given narratives, narratives that they believe advance their causes, whatever those may be. They don’t care if anything they say on-air has any basis whatsoever in fact or truth, because in their minds there is no such thing as objective “truth” anyway. And they obviously have full license from their infamous el Jefes at NBC to carry on their efforts to corrupt the American public with disinformation, just as the Sinaloa Cartel corrupts the American public with drugs.

At their essence, there is no real difference between the drug cartels and these corrupt fake news organizations, all of whom attack the foundations of our society by trafficking in their respective brands of narcotics for the masses.

You tell me which line of work is more despicable, because I’m having a really hard time deciding.

That is all.

Here’s Why the Democrats and their Media Propaganda Complex Are Panicked

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Democrats in Action!  – It is now no longer enough for Democrats and their spokespeople pretending to be journalists at our nation’s news outlets to simply fake the news on this fabricated border issue, now they must cry or otherwise become irrational while doing so.

Thus, on Tuesday we had the spectacle of Rep. Elijah Cummings pretending to breakdown crying as he screamed through his irrelevant opening statement at the House Judiciary Committee’s FBI corruption hearing, MSNBC fake host Rachel Maddow pretending to cry (without visible tears, of course) as she read a story about how HHS employees are placing the youngest children in separate centers designed to provide special care (because obviously, liberals oppose young children receiving special attention and care), and some bald-headed freak literally screaming through his entire 5 minute segment on Fox News’s “The Story” With Martha MaCallum. [Note:  I switched over to a baseball game after that, but I’m told Geraldo Rivera also went into a similar meltdown on the Sean Hannity program, along with panelists all over CNN and MSNBC.]

To top that off, you had the spectacle of some Democrat congressional staffer shouting “F*ck you!” at President Donald Trump as he walked through the halls of the U.S. capitol building, and a group of leftist agitators violently forcing Homeland Security Secretary Kirsten Nielsen to leave a restaurant where she was dining last night.

Obviously, the Democrat/media complex has some polling or focus grouping information that indicates that screaming and crying helps gin up public outrage on this subject.  Never mind the damage their idiotic histrionics do to our society, utterly destroying what little is left of civil discourse, they couldn’t care less.  These are truly desperate times for these people, and that desperation is playing out on all of our television screens each day and night.

The most scary part of all of this is that they will only become more desperate as November 6 approaches.  And make no mistake:  If these people obtain polling data or focus group results that indicate outright violence and rioting might knock the President’s public approval ratings down a couple of points, they will get a bunch of money from George Soros and pay a bunch of professional agitators to stage violent demonstrations and riots.  If you think I’m wrong about that, you just haven’t been paying enough attention lately.

So, why are the Democrats, their media benefactors and their radical social action support groups so desperate, you ask?  Well, isn’t it obvious?  Let’s go through a bullet list:

  • They spent 8 long years utterly corrupting every institution of our society, often engaging in criminal activity in the process.  They got away with it because 98% of the national news media helped them cover it up;
  • They assumed – were absolutely certain – that all of that would be swept under the rug and they would be able to continue corrupting our institutions and destroying our Republic for another 8 years when Hillary Clinton won the presidency in 2016;
  • And win Hillary would, because most every senior official in the Obama Administration – including Obama his own self – and a hardworking, dedicated cabal of loyal leftist FBI and DOJ officials were going to fix the damn election.  Yay, them!;
  • But, well, Hillary lost.  When that eventual outcome began to become crystal clear at about 9:00 ET on Election Night, they could see their whole world come crashing down around them;
  • It would have been one thing had the Pantsuit Princess lost to some establishment apparatchick like Jeb! Bush or John “Didja know my father was a postman?” Kasich – they would have been fine in that event because another Bush or a Kasich would have just gone about being kinder and gentler and helping them sweep all their crimes under that gigantic swamp rug and nobody out here in Flyover Country would have been any the wiser;
  • But no, the Fainting Felon didn’t lose to just anyone – she lost to Donald Freakin’ Trump, the one Republican out of 17 initial candidates who would actually come into the office and go about exposing their crimes, firing the perps, and ultimately prosecuting them;
  • So, utter, complete and total panic set in, and the American left lost what little collective mind it had left.  Violent demonstrations organized by groups funded by Soros and a handful of leftwing foundations began popping up all over the country, featuring a bunch of black-robed mask-wearing thugs that called themselves “Antifa”;
  • Members of the Clinton Campaign – including the Coughing Crook herself – immediately began promoting their “Russia Collusion” fantasy as the reason for their utter failure, and a well-coordinated fake news media campaign cranked up in support;
  • Meanwhile, the FBI/DOJ cabal and senior Obama officials transitioned their failed effort to fix the election into an effort frame Trump officials like General Mike Flynn for crimes they did not commit, and to entrap the incoming POTUS himself into committing some act that a special counsel might be able to dummy up into an obstruction of justice charge;
  • The Democrat/fake media complex also embarked on a withering, never-ending campaign to impugn the President’s character in a desperate effort to drive his public approval ratings down into the 20s in the hopes he would resign or, barring that, be impeached as he lost the support of congressional Republicans;
  • But the President did not resign, and his average poll ratings never fell below 40.  Instead, he went about reversing almost the entire Obama 8 years of policy, creating a massive renaissance of the U.S. economy, destroyed ISIS in about 5 minutes – infuriating all Obama loyalists and John McCain – and initiating a de-nuclearization process with North Korea that may well win him a Nobel Peace Prize that he couldn’t care less about;
  • Still, the Democrat/fake media complex carried on.  As recently as 7 months ago, the Democrats and their propaganda team were walking around in a state of glee as congressional preference polls showed their team with a big lead, leading to the narrative that the 2018 mid-term elections would bring about a great “Blue Wave” that would sweep Democrat majorities into both houses of congress, giving them control of the congressional committees that have been revealing so much of their wrongdoing.  It wasn’t too late to sweep everything under the rug – who would be able to stop them?;
  • But now the polls have turned sour for them.  President Trump is now at his all-time high standing in even several of the fake leftwing polls, and their edge in the congressional preference polling has all but disappeared;
  • They had to create a new issue, and the best they could land on is to portray President Trump and anyone who supports him as “Nazis” for basically enforcing immigration laws that have been on the books for decades.

This issue won’t work for them either, because the average American isn’t quite as stupid as Democrats and fake journalists always assume they are.  In the meantime, the last two days of testimony by DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz and the ongoing revelations surrounding it show them that the IG’s report on the FBI’s fake investigation into the Clinton email scandal wasn’t an end game, but the start of a process that will ultimately expose the entirety of their Obama-era scheming.

These people now realize they are aboard the political version of the HMS Titanic, and the first Horowitz report was just the tip of a vast iceberg that is floating inexorably in their direction.

Of course they’re panicked.  You would be too.

Just another day in it’s all going to come out in the end America.

That is all.
