The New Democrat/Media Narrative: Congress Must Take Up Mueller’s Witch Hunt

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

This is going to become hard to keep up with. – When the Republican candidates for the presidency assembled for their first debate in the summer of 2015, there were 17 of them. At the rate the Democrats are going so far this year, they will exceed that number by Valentine’s Day.

Hawaii Representative Tulsi Gabbard told communist CNN talk show host Van Jones that she plans to toss her lei into the ring within the next week. As I mentioned yesterday, San Antonio politician Julian Castro will be making his formal announcement today, joining Congressman John Delaney of Maryland as the first two formally-declared candidates. And of course, Fauxcahontas announced last week that she’s formed an exploratory committee, which means she’s running too.

So, Ms. Gabbard will make it four, and she’s actually the most interesting of the bunch.  She’s only 37 years old, but has been making news for years in her congressional role as a rare contrarian within the Democrat congressional caucus. Don’t get me wrong, she’s a socialist like all the rest of them, but she’s at least fairly intelligent about it and is not shy about calling out her party’s own excesses when she sees them. She has courage, in other words, and that is a terribly rare thing in a Democrat politician.

Gabbard most recently made news earlier this week when she called out dimwitted Hawaii Senator Mazie Hirono and California Senator Kamala Harris for the anti-Catholic bigotry the two exhibited recently in their roles on the Senate Judiciary Committee.  Gabbard was also frequently critical of the Obama Administration and of Hillary Clinton during her own disastrous run for the presidency.

One interesting thing Gabbard’s candidacy will do is without question give the Democrat field the broadest range of age in American history.  Think about it:  From Silent Generation Bernie Sanders at 77 to Millennial Tulsi Gabbard at 37, the Democrat field will span four full generations and 40 years. That is unprecedented.

But bottom line, Gabbard is far too intelligent, honest and interesting to ever win the Democrat Party’s presidential nomination, but she could set herself up for a cabinet position in some future Democrat administration by raising her public profile with a primary run.

Actual exchange at a Trump press availability on Friday afternoon:

TRUMP: Good job yesterday, I appreciate your sales pitch.

ACOSTA: I didn’t see any danger on the border Mr. President.

TRUMP: That’s because we had a wall.

Oof. And that’s why Donald Trump is President.

The fake media starts a new narrative using a most reliable source. – It didn’t get a ton of notice, but early Thursday morning, leftist rag Mother Jones put up a column by Democrat activist/pretend journalist David Corn titled “The Myth of the Mueller Report.” Corn, reading the handwriting on the wall, spends 1,000 words or so detailing the fact that Special Counsel Robert Mueller is under no obligation to produce any sort of public report, or any report at all that does anything other than detail the various indictments of ham sandwiches he’s secured over the past 20 months, and submit it confidentially to whomever happens to be serving as attorney general at the time.

The handwriting on the wall to which I refer is all the obvious signals that, despite all the hysteria and false reporting in our fake news media, Mueller has been slowly winding his operation down since last August and is likely to close up shop and issue whatever final report he’s going to issue shortly after the confirmation of new Attorney General William Barr is confirmed by the Senate.

The other piece of handwriting that’s all over our national reading wall  is that, along about that same time, DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz will be issuing his final report – at long last – on all the rampant abuse of the FISA system that took place during most of 2016 and into 2017. That report will not be good for Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, and everyone knows it, including Mr. Barr. That’s why we saw the news early this week that the oily Mr. Rosenstein will be leaving his own office right around the same time these other major events are taking place.

All of this is horrible news for the Democrats and their  media agents who, like Corn and Mother Jones, have been faithfully pushing the “Russia Collusion” fantasy on behalf of the Democrats for the last 26 months. They are desperate to keep the fantasy alive and need another vehicle for doing that once the Mueller witch hunt closes up shop.

Enter the new Democrat majority in the House of Representatives, and the concluding logic in Corn’s piece, which reads as follows:

Providing the citizenry a complete account of the Trump-Russia scandal is actually the responsibility of Congress.

And there it is: The roadmap for media justification of the endless series of kangaroo-court hearings the Democrats are going to conduct through various congressional committees for the next two years. 20+ months of a Special Counsel witch hunt aren’t going to deliver the Democrats their unicorn, so it is now up to Congress to spend the next 24 months pounding the public with the same nonsense.

You can expect to see Corn’s “logic” echoed throughout the fake news media’s editorial pages and talking head panels in the coming weeks and months.  Because this is the narrative, and pounding home the narrative is all our fake news media does anymore.

That is all.

Jim Acosta And Beto Beclown Themselves on the Border Issue

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

The ball’s in your court, Alexandria. – Some of you may have seen the tweet issued a couple of weeks ago by socialist dimwit Alexandria Ocasio Cortez in which she said something I actually agree with for the first time:

“Next time we have a gov shutdown, Congressional salaries should be furloughed as well.  It’s completely unacceptable that members of Congress can force a government shutdown on partisan lines & then have Congressional salaries exempt from that decision.  Have some integrity.”

Well, golly, our intrepid Millennial heroine is getting her chance to follow through on her stated belief today, which is pay day for federal workers, and members of congress, too. As Fox News reported two days ago, fully 13 of her freshmen colleagues had already notified the payroll office that they would forego their pay so long as the partial shutdown continues.

GOP freshman Dan Crenshaw from Texas made it 14 with his own tweet yesterday:

But AOC? Well, she has remained oddly silent on the matter.  Turns out that, being the good socialist she is, the stuff that comes out of her mouth applies to other people – the little people, the people out here in flyover country – but not to her.  This whole congress thing is turning out to be a little harder than she thought it was going to be.  Go figure.

Speaking of leftist dimwit heroes… – Even though he no longer holds a political office of any kind, Texas senate race loser Irish Bob O’Rourke is making sure we don’t forget about him as he prepares to announce his inevitable run for the Democrat Party’s 2020 presidential nomination. He’s accomplishing that goal by streaming himself live doing all sorts of things onto his Instagram page, which is followed by thousands of teenage girls, the entire editorial staff of the New York Times and that little bald fat guy who hosts a show on CNN.

Here’s Irish Bob in the kitchen pretending to cook.  Here’s Irish Bob growing a scraggly beard in obvious imitation of Ted Cruz. Here’s Irish Bob putting others in danger as he videos himself while driving a car. Here’s Irish Bob drinking a beer and cussing.

It’s all a frenzied effort by a twitchy guy married to a billionaire to pretend to be just like all you little people, and you can bet it’s working just great, because Democrats do love a good fraud as demonstrated by every guy they’ve nominated for president since Walter Mondale, who broke them of nominating genuine people by losing 49 states to Ronald Reagan in 1984.

Anyway, Irish Bob might have taken the ruse just a tad too far on Thursday, when he live-streamed himself talking about the border security crisis while having his teeth cleaned.  That’s right – I swear I don’t make this stuff up. Nothing says ‘presidential material’ to a Democrat voter like showing the inside of your mouth while a dental assistant scrapes the plaque off of your molars.

Ben Jacobs, a political reporter for The Guardian, had the best reaction when he tweeted, “God, I hope Beto doesn’t need a colonoscopy anytime soon.”

Speaking of presidential material… – Former San Antonio Mayor and Obama Administration HUD Secretary Julian Castro is set to announce his own candidacy for the Democrat nomination in his home city on Saturday. Castro’s probably too genuine a person and has too many actual accomplishments on his resume’ to actually win the Democrat nomination, but if he runs a credible race he could make a strong vice presidential pick for a Joe Biden, Bernie Sanders or Elizabeth Warren, who would need some youth and minority creds to balance a ticket.

And since we’re talking about Texas here… – President Donald Trump flew to the Rio Grande Valley on Thursday as he continues to make the case that the border crisis is real and justifies a presidential emergency declaration if congress refuses to deal with the issue even now that some federal employees are going to miss a paycheck for the first time. He held a couple of events with Texas officials and Border Patrol officers and said all the right things.

But the real entertainment – and strongest proof that border walls that are already in place do work – came from the most unlikely source imaginable.

Increasingly pathetic CNN fake reporter Jim Acosta, obviously frustrated that he is no longer called upon at presidential press availabilities, decided to strike out on his own to stage scenes that he believed would debunk the Trump Administration’s crisis claims. The results were predictably hilarious.

Here’s the first tweet Acosta sent out at mid-afternoon:

So, what does that tell us?  Doesn’t the lack of any activity whatsoever where the wall is already in place actually support the case that the wall is working?  Why yes, of course it does.

Unsurprisingly, Acosta’s idiotic quest produced all manner of funny comebacks – here’s one from Ben Shapiro:

Here’s another – read the logo on the hat closely:

Oof.

Acosta’s basically the biggest fraud working on television today, and an utter dolt to boot.

Hey, he’d make a great candidate for the Democrat presidential nomination!

 

That is all.

The Democrats’ “Biggest Stars” Just Keep Growing Dimmer

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Whoa, whoa, whoa! Ted, you’re not supposed to say that out loud. –  California Rep. Ted Lieu is one of the most execrable members of congress. In addition to the mere fact of being a Democrat, Lieu joins Maxine Waters in combining the worst combination of character traits any human being can possess: Overwhelming arrogance mixed with massive stupidity.

On Wednesday, these traits led Lieu to let one of the many Democrat unspoken cats out of the bag on national television, telling CNN’s vapid host Brianna Keiller the following:

 “I would love if I could have more than five minutes to question witnesses. Unfortunately, I don’t get that opportunity. However, I would love to be able to regulate the content of speech. The First Amendment prevents me from doing so, and that’s simply a function of the First Amendment”.

Yes, friends, in case you weren’t already aware of it, your Democrat friends want to regulate what you can and cannot say, and in fact are already well along the way to doing that in social media and our nation’s college campuses. They aren’t supposed to talk about it publicly, but every once in a while one of their dumber colleagues, like Lieu, slips up.  There you go.

Speaking of Democrats… – If you still doubt that the participants in the “migrant caravan” assembled down in Tijuana would become Democrats if they ever manage to enter the United States, Tuesday should have locked the case up for you.

That was the day that several hundred of them staged two separate “marches” to the U.S. Consulate in that Mexican city, and upon arrival demanded that they either be allowed into the United States, or that they be paid $50,000 each – by American taxpayers – to return to their home country.  I swear I do not make this stuff up.

So, not only do they want to come into America where most of them plan to become wards of the state, they now want to be paid reparations for their stupid decision to leave their home countries. Literally, the perfect Democrat voter mindset.

And now you know why Democrat Party leaders are so desperate to preserve our failed immigration laws.

A real Texas Hispanic challenges Beto Mania. – Figuring I suppose that hey, if a good-looking young white Texas guy pretending to be an Hispanic can run for president with no visible qualifications for the job, why can’t a real Hispanic Texan do the same, San Antonio’s Julian Castro announced on Wednesday he is forming an exploration committee in preparation to run for the presidency in 2020.

He’s a virtual clone of Irish Bob O’Rourke: Young, good-looking, good speaker, looks good on television, great at reciting approved talking points to the media, all the qualifications anyone apparently needs anymore to run for the Democrat nomination. Unlike Irish Bob, though, Castro actually is Hispanic. He also has some apparent actual qualifications for the job, being a former successful mayor of a major city (San Antonio) and having served as HUD Secretary for a few years during the Obama Administration.

Also unlike Irish Bob, though, Castro has not demonstrated the ability to excite the Democrat masses or raise tens of millions of dollars from wealthy leftists in Hollywood and New York. That is, of course, part of what his “exploratory committee” will be exploring in the coming weeks, because Castro, unlike Irish Bob, is not married to a billionaire, and won’t be able to largely self-fund his primary race if need be.

Ocasio Cortez Update!:

Yes, friends, Matthew Yglesias, writing at leftist activist site Vox.com, wants you to agree to change the constitution so that the femme fatal from Queens – who he calls “the biggest star in the Democratic Party” – could run for the presidency in 2020, when she will be all of 30 years of age.

Oh, but it gets better.

Yglesias doesn’t want to just lower the age for running for the presidency, he wants to eliminate all restrictions on the right to run. In Matty’s brave new world, any “registered voter” – which would include all those illegal immigrants who are now legally allowed to register to vote in California – would be able to run for the highest office in the land.

Think about the possibilities here: If Emanuel Macron, with his 18% approval rating, wants to transfer his society-destroying magic from France to the New World, he could just fly to San Francisco, register to vote, and instantly become a leading contender for the Democrat Party nomination, given that Democrats have been trying their best to destroy U.S. society since they elected Woodrow Wilson. Teresa May, fresh off of barely surviving her vote of no confidence after royally screwing up the whole Brexit thing, could do the same thing. Hassan Rouhani, the Iranian President to whom Obama and his fellow Democrats were happy to give $150 billion a few years ago, same deal.

Matty Yglesias, who is in fact a leading voice of American progressivism, says, hell, why not?

Your Democrat Party in action.

Breathtaking.

That is all.
