Are We Ready For John Roberts To Decide The Wall Fight? Because That Might Happen.

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Time to get that wall built.  – President Donald Trump will deliver a nationally-televised address on the border situation this evening at 8:00 p.m. Central Time, at which time it is rumored that the Evil Orange Man plans to declare a national emergency and order the border wall to be financed via the military budget. This would be an entirely reasonable move for the President to make in the face of an obstructionist congress, one he clearly has the constitutional authority to enter into, one that has all sorts of precedent in American history.

But of course, the national broadcast networks and 24 hour fake news channels – all of whom have agreed to carry the speech live after spending most of Monday afternoon contemplating censoring the President – will be filled with shrill leftist talking heads and hosts who will contend the move is illegal and completely without precedent. They are all professional liars, and liars gonna lie.

No doubt, were the President to declare such an emergency, the way it would all play out is highly predictable. Leftists would file suit in California or Hawaii, where some Obama-appointed “judge” would make up a reason to declare the state of emergency unconstitutional, and that judgment would be upheld by the nitwit majority on the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals.  The case would then inevitably go to the Supreme Court, where the four reliable constitutionalist justices would vote to reverse the 9th Circuit’s decision, and our nation would then be left at the mercy of Chief Justice John Roberts.

Roberts would have the choice of doing the right thing under the law, or carrying the water for the Deep State, as he did in his Obamacare decision in 2010, and a couple of other key decisions in 2018.  Not a good situation.

But factually, there is no doubt there is ample reason to declare the border situation a national emergency. The levels of drug trafficking, child trafficking and other forms of human trafficking that take place every day across our southern border are scandalous and society-threatening. Hundreds of Americans die every day and hundreds more disappear every day because of the Democrat Party-enforced neglect of the situation. It is a human tragedy of unimaginable proportions and it is scandalous that the Democrats continue to treat the situation as just another political football to be rolled into their Evil Orange Man agenda.

Democrats demanded the networks give them time to respond to the President’s address tonight.  No word if their message will be delivered by representatives from the Sinaloa Cartel and the MS-13 gang, but it seems likely and would be totally appropriate.

In a seemingly unrelated event… – Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg was unable to show up to hear oral arguments in the Supreme Court chamber on Monday, the first time she has missed a day on the bench in her 25 years on the Court. Ginsburg, 85, is in extremely frail health and recovering from last month’s surgery to remove two cancerous tumors from her lung.

But hey, because she’s a certified member of the Deep State, she’ll be able to just keep voting on the cases during her absence, which she will supposedly judge from reading transcripts of the oral arguments.  In other words, her clerks will be doing the judging, which they’ve no doubt been doing for quite some time now anyway, as Ginsburg continues her grim quest to outlive the Evil Orange Man’s first term in office.

Aw, heck. – Alleged serial sex-abuser Kevin Spacey had his first court hearing in the initial prosecution against him on Monday, and had another run-in with the law as he tried to return home.  Upon leaving Reagan National Airport in Washington, DC on his drive back to his Baltimore condo, Spacey was pulled over by local cops for …wait for it…A SPEEDING TICKET!  I swear I do not make this stuff up.

Texas Rep. Dan Crenshaw has got game. – You may remember Georgia Democrat Congressman Hank Johnson.  He’s the clown who, in a congressional hearing several years back, expressed his genuine concern that, due to its booming population, the island of Guam might actually capsize into the Pacific Ocean.  Think I made that up?  Think again.

Anyway, in a speech over the weekend, the nitwit Johnson had this to say about President Trump and his supporters:

“Much like Hitler took over the Nazi party, Trump has taken over the Republican Party. It’s now known as the Trump Republican Party…Donald Trump’s supporters are older, less educated, less prosperous, and they are dying early. Their lifespans are decreasing, and many are dying from alcoholism, drug overdoses, liver disease, or simply a broken heart caused by economic despair,”

Freshman Texas Congressman Dan Crenshaw, after learning of Johnson’s remarks, decided not to take them quietly.  He tweeted out a video in which he took Johnson to task for his incivility.  Here are a couple of outtakes:

“OK Mr. Johnson, President Trump is a lot of things, but he’s not Hitler.  He didn’t kill millions of people. He didn’t start a world war, he doesn’t have any concentration camps, and to accuse him of being Hitler is intellectually dishonest, and frankly a huge insult to the millions of Jews who died under Nazi Germany.”

But it gets better.  Crenshaw also took Johnson to task for his idiotic, dishonest portrayal of Trump supporters:

“You went on to insult, degrade, and demean tens of millions of Americans who voted for him, to call them drug-addicted, uneducated, unhappy alcoholics — this is a cowardly form of politics.”

Crenshaw went on to challenge Johnson to “pick on someone your own size,” reminding him that “my office will be right down the hall from yours.”

Fantastic.

ObamaCare’s On-Again Off-Again Constitutionality Is Off-Again, For Now

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Huh. Guess congress did something about ObamaCare after all. –  The stain on our nation’s healthcare system that is ObamaCare was declared unconstitutional by a federal judge in Texas on Friday, and you’ll never guess why.

Remember last year, when we were all complaining that the Republican congress had failed to do anything effective to get rid of the atrocity? Remember when John McCain proudly cast the deciding vote in the dead of night, sneering in his belief that he had, in his final major act as a senator, saddled the nation with this economy killing nightmare into perpetuity?

Yeah, it turns out that McCain and everyone else might have been wrong. Judge Reed O’Connor – who everyone in our fake news media will be labeling as a “conservative judge” or a “right-wing judge” today, even though they never label any Obama appointee properly as a “Marxist judge” or “Alynskyite judge” – ruled that Obamacare was rendered unconstitutional last year when congress repealed the individual mandate tax contained within it.

This of course is the “tax” that Chief Justice John Roberts ruled really was a tax – even though Obama and every other Democrat on earth denied it was a tax, and the law itself did not call it a tax – when he twisted himself into tight little pretzels of illogic in declaring the law to be “constitutional” back in 2012. Yeah, that “tax”.

Judge O’Connor, in a suit brought by Texas and 19 other states, ruled on Friday that this “tax”  – which penalized anyone who didn’t purchase healthcare ‘insurance’ under Obamacare in order to subsidize the entire house of cards – was in fact the foundation of the entire house of cards. The states had argued that the individual mandate was “non-severable” from the remainder of the ObamaCare law, and the judge agreed.

President Trump got all excited when he heard of the decision and issued the following premature tweet:

The problem is that Judge O’Connor’s decision will be immediately appealed by the 14 states who argued in favor of ObamaCare, and thus will not become effective anytime soon, if it ever does. Justice Roberts, after all, has already demonstrated he is willing to go to any lengths of illogic to uphold the atrocity, and there are still 4 leftist clods on the court who will do or say anything to promote their own personal social views.

Still, it was fun to wake up this morning to the news that John McCain’s final sneering middle finger act to the rest of us has at least temporarily been invalidated.

It’s been a great week for goodbyes. – Man, getting rid of Jeff Flake and The Weekly Standard all in one week feels like Christmas come early! Toss Claire McCaskill into the mix, and it’s time to strike up “Joy to the World”.

Yes, friends, the execrable cretin Bill Kristol announced late Friday that the formerly conservative but now rankly liberal #NeverTrump publication, The Weekly Standard, would go out of business after it publishes its final issue on Monday. To that, I only have this to say:

Ok, I have one more thing to say. The sad part of this is that, while Kristol and fellow editor Stephen Hayes will be just fine in this deal, no doubt getting a massive severance deal and retaining their contributor agreements with various cable networks (Kristol has long been one of CNN’s favorite pet fake conservatives), the rest of the magazine’s staff is going to get royally screwed right before Christmas.

Still, the shutting of this rag is no loss to conservatism, no loss to the GOP and no loss to the country. It just is.

Wait, what? Huh? Come again? – Liberals are having such a hard damn time labeling themselves these days that it’s hard to keep up.  Take yesterday as examples:

First, Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth “Little Mouth Always Running” Warren gave a speech on Friday in which she outright declared that “I am not a person of color.” Holy crap. Wasn’t it just a couple of months ago that this congenitally dishonest hack was taking DNA tests, declaring that, because one of them found that she was 1/1024th (maybe) “native American” that she WAS a “person of color?”

Make up your mind, lady.

As if that’s not confusing enough, then you have some guy named Jonathan Rauch, who is apparently himself a gay man, writing a piece at the ultra-liberal rag The Atlantic declaring that “it’s time to take the ‘LGBT’ out of ‘LGBTQ'”.  I swear I do not make this stuff up. Here is a part of Rauch’s reasoning, which I must directly quote in order to not be personally accused of being a bigot:

“As activists and theorists sought to cover every base, they recognized asexuality and intersexuality and various other identities by coining LGBTQIAA+, LGBTTIQQ2SA, and other telescoping designations. Lately LGBTQ seems to have become the norm, on the assumption that Q, for queer, can stand in for all the rest.”

and this…

“If you like, you can think of it as short for queer. Or, if you don’t like, just Q. Give it any etymology you wish. Regardless, the term would be understood to encompass sexual minorities of all stripes. When we speak of ourselves as individuals, we would use gay or lesbian or transgender or whatever applies. When we need a blanket term, we would simply call ourselves Q. As in: the Q population and Q equalityQ is simple and inclusive, and carries minimal baggage. When we speak of Q equality, we are saying that discrimination against sexual minorities—or for that matter sexual majorities—is not the American way.”

That’s right: After decades of gay rights activists telling the world that the use of the word “queer” is in fact a bigoted slur (which it is), we now have a prominent gay “journalist” advocating that everyone go back to using the letter “Q” – which he overtly admits stands for the word “queer” – to refer to anyone in the gay community.

I can’t even.

That is all.

The Week in Revew: Democrats/Media Shift Focus Away From Robert Mueller

The Campaign Update Week in Review

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

This was the week that the media/Democrat narrative mysteriously shifted away from Robert Mueller. After a couple of weeks of renewed, post-election focus on Mueller and his fake “investigation”, the media/Democrat axis of propaganda suddenly shifted to climate change, and then back to the border issue, and the 5,000-plus “migrants” from Central America overwhelming the infrastructure and public patience in Tijuana, Mexico.

This is very odd, since the Climate Scam is where the American Left always goes whenever it has run out of anything else to say. “Climate Change” is always their issue of last resort because of its nature as an ever-evolving set of theories that conveniently allow the scammer to blame literally anything that happens in our daily lives on “Climate Change”.

All those people fighting over cheap TVs at your local Wal-Mart on Black Friday? Climate Change. Riots happening in Paris, France? That’s not caused by tax protesters, it’s caused by Climate Change. Record, bitter cold across the midwest and northeast? Climate Change – never been cold up there before. Your car wouldn’t start yesterday morning? Climate Change. Brian Stelter’s disappearing hairline? Climate Change.

It’s all Climate Change all the time, and that’s why the Axis of Propaganda invariably ends up focusing on it for at least one week every year because all of their other fake narratives have come up a crapper.  Thus, this week, a week when it became increasingly obvious that Robert Mueller has a huge bag of nothing where President Trump is concerned and is continuing to systematically wrap up his 19-month witch hunt, the media and their Democrat masters fell back on their old, reliable fright tactic.

The fake news media has also been forced to report on migrant invasion happening at our Southern border after a couple of weeks of attempting to ignore a story that is hugely damaging to Democrat interests. With even the media now admitting that more than 75% of these giant “caravans” consist of military-aged males, many of whom are known violent gang members, and with President Donald Trump tweeting and talking about it each and every day, the post-election effort to simply ignore it became impossible to maintain.

There are reports this morning that several hundred of the migrant army in Tijuana will attempt to storm the border crossing there later today, so CNN will gladly report on that, hoping to get films of violence that are that fake news network’s stock in trade. Of course, CNN will only air any such video if it can spin the shots negatively against U.S. Border Patrol and military personnel who will be there to turn back the invasion.

Which is what this is.  An invasion.

Let’s go to the rest of this Week in Review:

  • It was the week that all the focus on Climate Change and the migrant invasion took preening CNN peacock Jim Acosta right out of the news cycle, and that was a glorious result. America needs more of this.
  • It was the week that Oklahoma beat West Virginia by a score of 59-56 in a college football game in which neither team’s defense apparently ever took the field of play.
  • It was the week that yet another Obama-appointed federal judge ruled that President Trump, as opposed to all other presidents in U.S. history, lacks the authority clearly given to him in the text of the U.S. Constitution.
  • It was the week that the Chief Justice of the U.S. Supreme Court, the man who twisted himself into legalistic knots in order to impose Obamacare on our populace, lied to the American public by claiming there is no difference between an “Obama judge” and the judges appointed by other presidents.  Shame, Justice Roberts, shame on you.
  • It was the week when the White House Correspondents Association ended the tradition of having a bad comedian speak at its annual Dinner, giving yet another win to Donald J. Trump.
  • It was the week that our fake news media invested tons of its air and print time once again trying to convince the American people to care about the killing of a radical Islamist blogger who used to go to dinner parties hosted by editors at the Washington Post. The effort failed. Again.
  • It was the week that President Trump correctly chose to refuse to destroy our country’s key strategic relationship with Saudi Arabia over the killing of a radical Islamist blogger who the Saudi government considered to be an enemy of the state.
  • It was the week that Broward County’s Supervisor of Elections, Brenda Snipes, having tried and failed to steal the state’s senate election for Democrat Bill Nelson and the governor’s election for Democrat Andrew Gillum, tendered her resignation in disgrace. Now, if there is still any justice left in Florida, she will be prosecuted.
  • It was the week that Democrats expressed their outrage at all the subsidies and tax breaks given by the states of New York and Virginia to secure the new Amazon regional headquarters sites, while in their next breath confirming their support for subsidies and tax breaks for solar and wind power and billionaire Elon Musk.  *sigh*
  • It was the week that British Prime Minister Theresa May took her “Brexit” deal to European Union headquarters, a deal that will essentially keep Britain under the EU’s despotic thumb. To no one’s surprise, the EU approved. Sellout is Theresa May’s middle name.
  • It was the week that French Prime Minister Emmanuel Macron, barely a week removed from denouncing Donald Trump and populism at a summit conference in Paris, saw riots break out on the streets of Paris and his personal approval rating fall to below 20%.
  • Meanwhile, in America, it was the week that President Trump saw his approval rating in the daily Rasmussen survey tick up to 51% and stay there.

There’s a message in there somewhere – wonder if the Boy Prince of Paris can see it through all the smoke rising along the Champs Elysee’?

That is all.

John Roberts Lies About Obama Judges, Trump Slaps Him Down. Happy Thanksgiving!

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Your fake news media in action. –  The fake news media has been telling us for weeks now that Jamal Khashoggi, the radical Islamist “journalist” who was murdered by the Saudis in Turkey, had a green card and was a permanent U.S. resident.

Yesterday, we found out that that was a fake story made up by our fake news media in unison in order to try to increase pressure on the Trump Administration to destroy our nation’s vital relationship with Saudi Arabia over the killing:

#EnemiesOfThePeople, defined. Our fake news media have done so many despicable things to mislead the American public over the past four years, but this episode, an overt attempt to destroy an international relationship via a coordinated invention of a legend, ranks among the worst. Yes, the killing of Khashoggi was a cowardly and loathsome act, and the Trump Administration has condemned it and sanctioned those known thus far to have been responsible for carrying it out.

On the other hand, the Saudi government has become our key Middle Eastern ally in the fight against Iran-sponsored terrorism, one of the main reasons why the frequency of acts of radical Islamic terror has fallen significantly over the past two years. That fact, combined with Saudi Arabia’s historic major influence over the price of crude oil, far outweighs the killing of a Muslim Brotherhood-supporting radical who was an enemy of the Saudi state, regardless of how it was carried out, or the fact that he went to cocktail parties with radical left-wing fake journalists in the United States.

The reality is that the governments of Saudi Arabia and Israel are the the only two entities that stand between the Middle East and utter, complete chaos today. President Trump and his administration are right to resist politically-motivated calls from our fake news media, Democrats and some Republicans to destroy our relationship with one of those countries over the killing of a non-U.S. citizen/resident that no American outside of Washington, D.C. or Manhattan cares about.

Ocasio Cortez Watch:

John Roberts is consciously lying about Obama Judges, and it is pathetic.:

I was going to respond to that, but saw that President Trump already did…

…and…

That was yesterday afternoon.  The President got up this morning, and decided he wasn’t finished with our dishonest Chief Justice, and added more…

…and…

Brutal.  And 100% correct.

Happy Thanksgiving from Today’s Campaign Update! – They say you’re supposed to think of 10 things you are thankful for each Thanksgiving, which seems like a pretty solid idea, so I try to do that every year. I have lived a very lucky life from the day I was born, and have so many things for which to be thankful that I could list 100 here and still have many more to go.  But here is my own Top Ten…

  • My wonderful wife who has somehow tolerated being with me for 37 beautiful years;
  • The best daughter and best son on earth, and their spouses who we love as our own children;
  • Two beautiful and hilarious granddaughters;
  • Football;
  • Having lived on this earth for 62 years;
  • Having had a career in which I accomplished more than I had any right to expect when it began;
  • Having been born in the United States of America in the 20th century, the most fortunate circumstance in human history;
  • Having lived my entire life in Texas;
  • The music of Sinatra, Chicago and George Strait; and
  • My badass cat Max.

 

That is all.
