Today’s Campaign Update
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)
Wait, you hired a Canadian to play Neil Armstrong? Isn’t that, like, cultural appropriation or something? – Hey, everybody, Hollywood has finally made a film about American hero Neil Armstrong, the first man on the moon. That only took half a century.
That’s the good news. The bad news is that they left out the iconic moment in which Armstrong plants the U.S. Flag on the moon’s surface, because of course they did. Predictably, this is causing a backlash from many…wait for it…patriotic Americans! Go figure.
The film’s Canadian star, Ryan Gosling, defended what he said was an intentional decision because Armstrong’s achievement – which was done on the back of billions of American dollars, a decade of American research and exploration, and with the support of more than 400,000 people, all of whom were…wait for it…AMERICANS – “transcended countries and borders.”
No. Not it did not, you smarmy jackass. As a great Twitter meme pointed out on Friday, there are two kinds of countries: The kind that use the metric system, and the kind that has put men on the moon.
Just one more reason why if you go to the movies these days to see any film not produced by Dinesh D’Souza, you are part of the problem.
Tired of all this Winning yet? Part I – Far left fake news outlet The Village Voice announced yesterday that it will cease all publication immediately, leaving the nation far better off as a result. Let’s do The New York Times next.
Tired of all this Winning yet? Part II – The State Department announced that the U.S. will withhold all contributions to a U.N. sponsored money pit that pretends to provide aid to Palestinian refugees. A spokesman for the State Department called the agency’s business model “unsustainable,” which in diplomatic speak means all the money was being siphoned off either to support Palestinian terrorist acts against Israel or going into the pockets of corrupt U.N. officials. Just one more element of the un-American legacy of Barack Hussein Obama gone.
Tired of all this Winning yet? Part III – The Democrats’ 2004 presidential nominee and former failed Secretary of State John Kerry is refusing to rule out another presidential run in 2020. Oh, please, please, please, let this happen. I really cannot wait for a rerun of that particular fiasco.
Hey, the Texas news media has been telling us he’s just like a Kennedy, so… – Irish Beto O’Rourke took a wallop to his campaign on Friday, as the Houston Chronicle and San Antonio Express News both ran stories detailing new facts about his drunk driving incident from 20 years ago. To be fair, O’Rourke has long admitted to the fact he was arrested for DWI, calling it an inexcusable act. But what he has left out of his maudlin confessions are the facts that he blew a 1.36 on the breathalyzer test that night, and that he attempted to flee the scene of the wreck he caused in his drunken state before being arrested.
The Democrat-tilting news media in Texas have been comparing O’Rourke to a Kennedy for months now. We just didn’t know prior to yesterday that they were talking about Ted Kennedy.
While the Chronicle and Express News are to be commended for actually filing these reports, they have yet to report on the fact that, in 1995, young Irish Beto was also tossed in the pokey on burglary-related charges while in college. According to Politifact Texas, “O’Rourke and fellow students were arrested for “attempted forcible entry” under the section of the Texas penal code titled “Burglary.” We also added O’Rourke’s reference, in Palestine, to the burglary arrest.”
Gosh, maybe now we know why Irish Beto suddenly backed out of the debate with Ted Cruz that was supposed to have taken place last night. The two candidates have four more scheduled debates over the coming weeks – we’ll just have to wait and see if our “Kennedy-esque” boy wonder chooses to keep any of those appointments.
Why is it always such a shock when someone at the FBI actually does their real job? – After state law enforcement officials in New Mexico had completely hosed up the case against the five radical Islamic terrorists who were training kidnapped children to commit atrocities in our country, the feds finally decided to step in. On Friday, the FBI actually took time out from its ongoing silent coup efforts against President Trump to do its real job for a change, placing the five terrorists under arrest for violations of federal weapons and conspiracy laws.
“The defendants, Jany Leveille, 35, a Haitian national illegally present in the United States, Siraj Ibn Wahhaj, 40, Hujrah Wahhaj, 37, Subhanah Wahhaj, 35, and Lucas Morton, 40, are charged in a criminal complaint that was filed earlier today in the U.S. District Court for the District of New Mexico,” the bureau said in a statement.
“The criminal complaint charges Jany Leveille with being an alien unlawfully in possession of firearms and ammunition in the District of New Mexico from Nov. 2017 through Aug. 2018,” the bureau said. “The criminal complaint charges the other four defendants with aiding and abetting Leveille in committing the offense, and with conspiring with Leveille to commit the offense.”
Presumably, the arresting agents can now go back to stonewalling document production requests from various congressional committees in the hopes of getting safely past the midterm elections. Because that is the real focus of our nation’s “premier law enforcement agency” these days.
Just another day in every day is a new day America.
That is all.
