Today’s Campaign Update
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)
“Ok, listen up. Here’s the plan: Strzok falsifies the 302s from his interview with Flynn. Then we bully him for months, raid his home, threaten his family, get a false guilty plea from him. And then…we let him off. Pure evil, right?” – Right. American Gestapo Chief, er, ‘special counsel’ Robert Mueller sent his 12 month overdue sentencing memo for General Mike Flynn to the judge in the case on Tuesday, and guess what? It calls for a fine (because ruining him financially just isn’t enough for Mueller and his evil minions) and this:
“Given the defendant’s substantial assistance and other considerations set forth below, a sentence at the low end of the guideline range—including a sentence that does not impose a term of incarceration—is appropriate and warranted.”
We should all be happy with the prospect of an American who has served this country like General Flynn possibly avoiding jail time in this fiasco. But every American, no matter how mindlessly filled with hatred against President Donald Trump they might be, should be outraged that Flynn spent the last two years being put through this un-American, Nazi-like process by Mueller and his evil minions.
It’s an utter, damnable disgrace.
Wait. In 2016 he told us that the Pantsuit Princess was the most qualified person EVER. – Joe Biden, on a book tour like seemingly everyone else on earth, told an audience of multiples of two in Missoula, MT that “I’ll be as straight with you as I can. I think I’m the most qualified person in the country to be president. The issues that we face as a country today are the issues that have been in my wheelhouse, that I’ve worked on my whole life.”
No word if he went on to admit that he had been consistently wrong about all of those issues he’s been working on his whole life, but the odds are against it.
Also, why didn’t any of the “reporters” present think to ask the ex-VP why it is that, if he has been working on these issues his whole life, they all still persist today? But hey, asking that question would have required curiosity and integrity, so obviously it did not get asked.
Paris Burning Watch:

Yes, the “yellow-vest” protest movement that has been burning the streets of Paris for the last two weeks has won a temporary reprieve from the confiscatory carbon tax that the socialist government of Emanuel Macron planned to impose on January 1 in its fool’s effort to “do something” to fight “climate change.”
But only for six months. The French should not kid themselves this is any sort of permanent victory. The quotes from French Prime Minister Edouard Philippe in this Reuters story are telling:
Prime Minister Edouard Philippe said anyone would have “to be deaf or blind” not to see or hear the roiling anger on the streets over a policy that Macron has defended as critical to combating climate change.
“The French who have donned yellow vests want taxes to drop, and work to pay. That’s also what we want. If I didn’t manage to explain it, if the ruling majority didn’t manage to convince the French, then something must change,” said Philippe.
“No tax is worth jeopardizing the unity of the nation.”
He warned citizens, however, that they could not expect better public services and lower taxes.
“If the events of recent days have shown us one thing, it’s that the French want neither an increase in taxes or new taxes. If the tax-take falls then spending must fall, because we don’t want to pass our debts on to our children. And those debts are already sizeable,” he said.
In other words, over the next six months Macron and Philippe plan to “explain” the confiscatory tax plan designed to make it too expensive for working class French citizens to drive cars or run air conditioners by threatening them with massive cuts to the country’s social services and programs targeting the working and middle class. These cuts would do nothing to fight “climate change,” but the hope is that they will do much to frighten the public into accepting the carbon tax as a less unpleasant alternative.
This is classic leftist government bullying, along the lines of “the beatings will continue until morale improves.”
One spokesman for the “yellow vest” protesters responded to the temporary tax suspension by telling a reporter, “We are being taken for fools.” Why yes, yes you are.
Meanwhile, from the world of #NeverTrump #Nitwittery…
#NeverTrump nitwit stalwart Max Boot had this to say about Macron back in 2017, and it is glorious:
To defeat populism, America needs its own Macron–a charismatic leader who can make centrism cool. My take: https://t.co/AAF1YwTnqb

That’s quite the take, there, Max. Holy crap.
Speaking of climate change…: If you’re still worried about that U.S. Climate Assessment that was released the day after Thanksgiving, you should take 7 minutes to read this:
The well-reported idea that warming will shrink the economy by 10 percent disregards huge economic growth, and assumes twice the damages of the worst-case temperatures the report itself expects.

Bjorn Lomborg is a real climate scientist, but he’s a social outcast among his peer group because he chooses to tell the truth about sham reports like this one. Again, it’s a very easy read that only takes a few minutes, but it thoroughly exposes how the authors of this report – and our fake news media – attempted to defraud the American public. Again.
Read it. You’ll be glad you did.
