NASCAR Really Needs to Come up With a Better Hoax Narrative

But this one’s for really real, y’all. Promise. – Just hours after the FBI verified that the story about a “noose” being found in Bubba Wallace’s garage at the Talladega Superspeedway was just another hoax, officials at the Sonoma Raceway, another NASCAR track in California, let it be known that they are going down the exact same road again. I swear I don’t make this stuff up.

From a tiresome story at The Hill:

Authorities in California are investigating after another noose was reportedly found at a NASCAR race track, this time Sonoma Raceway.

According to the track, a member of the raceway’s staff found the noose hanging from a tree Saturday morning.

“If this is what it appears to be, it is distressing and disgusting, and it has no place in the sport,” Steve Page, Sonoma Raceway’s president and general manager told the Sonoma Index-Tribune.

“Someone had taken the time to tie it into a noose,” he added. “We think it is what it appears to be.”

The Sonoma County Sheriff’s Office is handling the case as a possible hate crime, a spokeswoman for the office said in a statement.

[End]

If anything, this ridiculous story sounds even more like a hoax than the Talladega fairy tale, which turned out to be a case of a clear fraud in which the garage door pulls on the storage garages had been tied into loops so workers can get handholds on them. The one on Wallace’s garage had obviously been cut off with scissors and then “found” by some enterprising hoaxer.

In Sonoma, we don’t even have a logical tie Wallace, the only Black driver on the NASCAR circuit, so what would be the point? Plus, note that the Sonoma “noose” was supposedly “found” hanging in a tree outside the facility on Saturday, before any reports out of Talladega began circulating.

Investigation after what appears to be a noose found at Sonoma ...

So, what are we supposed to believe, that some redneck racist is spending all of his beer money feverishly flying coast to coast tying strings into “nooses” and planting them at NASCAR facilities? How dumb do these NASCAR people think we all are?

Ok, don’t answer that.

Back to the Bubba Wallace hoax: take a look at this statement from the FBI released last night:

In that first sentence, we see that the Talladega scam wasted the time and resources of no fewer than 15 FBI agents. FIFTEEN. For a garage tie that was nothing more than a knot for a handhold, Christopher Wray decided he had 15 agents with the time to spare to apparently go talk to everyone in the city of Lincoln, Alabama, where the raceway is located.

Given that pretty much any sentient being who has been paying attention to what has been going on in this country for the last four years pretty much knew this would all turn out to be a hoax within about 10 seconds of hearing the first reports about it, this case should have been sewn up by a single agent very quickly. The fact that the FBI has 15 people to allocate to something like this tells us all we need to know about how much money is being absolutely wasted by Wray and his bureau.

Can’t wait to see what Wray’s virtue-signaling head count will be out in Sonoma. After all, there is much fine wine in which to imbibe out there once the 2-minute “investigation” has been completed. Why, this one might require the presence of Wray himself, since he obviously has nothing better to do.

One final question about NASCAR and Talladega: Is it really possible that, in the year 2020, NASCAR and Talladega don’t have the financial wherewithal to install automatic door openers on its garages? How are these guys still having to pull those doors down with ropes? This was really the first question that came into my mind when I saw the photos.

In any event, NASCAR really does need to come up with a better hoax narrative. If other “nooses” have been planted in additional tracks around the country, they need to send someone out today to quietly remove them, because nobody is buying what they’re selling.

That is all.

Justice: Weinsten Convicted, Jussie Charged, 9th Circuit Flipped, Planned Parenthood Hit

Today’s Campaign Update, Part III (Because the Campaign Never Ends)

The wheels of American justice do indeed turn slowly; but, as Sun Tzu would have said, they grind exceedingly fine.

In today’s WINNING on the American justice front, we have the following taking place:

Six more criminal charges, and prosecutors apparently aren’t finished yet. Isn’t life grand?

But wait, there’s more!

APCO's Vendor Hall: Tips for Avoiding the Billy Mays' Sales Pitch

Take a look at this one…

From the Hollywood Reporter story:

A jury of 12 men and women has found former movie mogul Harvey Weinstein guilty on two of the five potential criminal charges he faced in his New York County trial.

Weinstein has been convicted of criminal sexual assault in the first degree, based on the testimony of former Project Runway production assistant Miriam Haley, and rape in the third degree, based on the testimony of one-time aspiring actress Jessica Mann.

The verdict was announced on Monday after the jury of seven men and five women spent five days deliberating on his fate.

Weinstein was remanded into custody against the protests of his lawyers, who cited his health. He looked ashen and unstable as he was surrounded by court officers who helped escort him out of the court room.

Weinstein will be sentenced on March 11. He’s facing five to 25 years for the criminal sexual assault conviction and 18 months to four years for the third-degree rape conviction.

At a press availability following the verdict, Weinstein’s lawyers stated that they intend to file an appeal. But the overwhelming likelihood is that this beast will be spending the remainder of his sorry existence in this life in prison. Cool.

But wait, there’s even more!

It turns out that Mini-Mike has long been a very good buddy of the big, monstrous Democrat Party contributor:

From the Daily Mail piece:

The Bloomberg-Weinstein political relationship would continue for years, and would come to include a series of high-profile public events in Manhattan, as well as a joint push for a lucrative tax break that benefited the film industry and helped draw attention to the city.

Bloomberg is one of many famous figures who have come to regret their connections to Weinstein, who has been accused by women of rape and assault and is on trial in New York.

It is a tie that is particularly sensitive for Bloomberg, who has been accused by women of overseeing a hostile work environment and has been accused of making inappropriate comments – a topic Sen. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts hammered him over at Wednesday’s Demoratic debate.

Once in office, Bloomberg teamed with Weinstein at events to promote New York City, his charity, and his own election efforts.

Weinstein made last-minute phone calls on behalf of Bloomberg’s 2001 election when the then-Republican took City Hall, according to press accounts at the time.

He was behind the mayor again for his reelection in 2005, when the former filmmaking powerhouse reportedly made automated phone calls to boost the billionaire’s campaign. (Bloomberg spent $85 million on that successful effort).

Weinstein helped lend Democratic credibility and Hollywood cache to the then-independent Bloomberg’s reelection, speaking at a Democrats for Bloomberg event. ‘I haven’t heard this many Democrats saying nice things about me since I was one,’ the mayor quipped at the time.

In other instances, the two teamed up in efforts meant to promote New York and the film industry, as they did in 2002 in a brash effort to lure one of Hollywood’s biggest nights – the Oscars – to Manhattan. The idea began with a Weinstein pitch to get the entire show, then morphed into an effort by Bloomberg, Weinstein, and former New York Gov. George Pataki to bring part of the annual show to the city as a tribute to its glory days.

Oh, my. No wonder Mr. Excitement chose to skip his invited townhall scheduled to have been aired tonight on CNN.

And by the way, in case you are still buying the utter BS that Mini-Mike is 5’8″, know that Harvey Weinstein is 5’9″ when he is not pretending to need that walker. Note how he towers over Bloomberg here:

Yesterday, the Los Angeles Times ran a panicked piece that carried this headline:

Trump has flipped the 9th Circuit — and some new judges are causing a ‘shock wave’

Yes, boys and girls, I swear I don’t make this stuff up.

From the LA Times piece:

When President Trump ticks off his accomplishments since taking office, he frequently mentions his aggressive makeover of a key sector of the federal judiciary — the circuit courts of appeal, where he has appointed 51 judges to lifetime jobs in three years.

In few places has the effect been felt more powerfully than in the sprawling 9th Circuit, which covers California and eight other states. Because of Trump’s success in filling vacancies, the San Francisco-based circuit, long dominated by Democratic appointees, has suddenly shifted to the right, with an even more pronounced tilt expected in the years ahead.

Trump has now named 10 judges to the 9th Circuit — more than one-third of its active judges — compared with seven appointed by President Obama over eight years.

“Trump has effectively flipped the circuit,” said 9th Circuit Judge Milan D. Smith Jr., an appointee of President George W. Bush.

Oh, and there’s this little tidbit in that piece for those of us who have wondered how things got so tilted to the far left on the 9th circuit to begin with:

The 9th Circuit court has been dominated by Democratic appointees for decades. In 1978, a federal law created 10 new judgeships on the court, allowing President Carter to fill them all. The liberal Carter appointees were followed by judges named by three Republican presidents and two Democrats.

The more you know…

That injustice took place 42 years ago, and it took President Donald Trump (I will never tire of typing those three glorious words) to correct it.

So, what does the flipping of the 9th Circuit mean in practical terms? Check this out:

From the National Review article:

Title X of the Public Health Service Act authorizes the Department of Health and Human Services to make grants to support voluntary family planning but prohibits grant funds from being used in “programs where abortion is a method of family planning.” In an important victory for the Trump administration—and a big defeat for Planned Parenthood—the Ninth Circuit ruled today (in California v. Azar) that the HHS’s regulations implementing Title X are lawful.

The age of Obama-appointed district judges scattered across the country issuing nationwide injunctions for purely partisan reasons is ending.

That, my friends, is WINNING. Bigly.

That is all.

The Misplaced Priorities of the FBI and DOJ Protect the Deep State Seditionists

Today’s Campaign Update
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

But…but…but wouldn’t that be double jeopardy? Answer: No.  – Corrupt Cook County State’s Attorney Kimberly Foxx and a corrupt state judge can fix things for Jussie Smollett at the state level, but there isn’t a thing they can do to help him out with federal crimes he may have committed in his effort to smear President Donald Trump and his millions of supporters.

Before he claimed to have been attacked by two MAGA-cap-wearing thugs – a claim the Chicago PD investigated and determined to have been laughably false – Smollett may have committed the federal crime of mail fraud. A week prior to that alleged assault, a threatening letter arrived at the offices of “Empire”, complete with “MAGA” smeared across the envelope.

Investigators suspect Smollett mailed the letter to himself in his pathological efforts to get himself a raise by convincing the TV series’ producers that he had become a widely-recognized star. You seriously cannot make this stuff up.

This would be a classic case of mail fraud, a federal crime for which Paul Manafort is, in part, spending the next 5 years in prison. Some legal talking heads are speculating further that Smollett could even be prosecuted under the federal hate crimes laws, given the Chicago PD’s belief that the fake assault he planned and paid for (with a personal check, no less) amounts to the commission of a hate crime against himself.  Awesome.

The President himself let it be known early Thursday morning that the DOJ  and FBI are actually on this particular case for once:

Which embarrassment are we talking about here, Mr. President – Smollett, Chicago’s corrupt politics, or the FBI and DOJ? – It’s a great question, isn’t it?

No doubt it’s a good thing that federal investigators will be trying to bring some real justice down around this despicable actor’s head, but it’s pretty hard to celebrate that without noting at the same time the ongoing, abject failure of the DOJ to assert similar justice on those who spent all of 2016 trying to fix the presidential election and all of 2017 and 2018 attempting to execute a coup d’etat.

It seems the FBI and DOJ have all sorts of assets to dedicate to chasing a 3rd-tier actor or rich parents who bribe universities to admit their under-performing children – an investigation to which the FBI bragged it had dedicated no less than 300(!) agents. But when it comes to indicting and raiding the homes and perp-walking deep state snakes like James Comey, Sally Yates, Andrew McCabe and Peter Strzok, well, suddenly they apparently can’t be bothered to lift a finger.

And what of John Brennan, the Obama-era CIA Director and living embodiment of “Homeland” character Dar Adal? Here is a guy who has leveraged his experience as a former spymaster into a lucrative “analyst” gig with MSNBC, from which perch he has spent the last two years accusing the sitting President of committing treason.

Talk about projection – this guy was involved in this deep state coup up to his wrinkled neck. It has been public knowledge for well over a year that he in fact was involved in the authorization of the use of the fake Trump Dossier to obtain the FISA warrants needed to spy on the Trump Campaign and Transition team. Senator Rand Paul apparently just discovered this reality on Wednesday, and issued this tweet in response:

Yes, he should be subpoenaed to testify under oath – although he would not doubt just lie to congress as he has done multiple times in the past.

But more than that, he should be under a focused investigation by the U.S. Department of Justice and the FBI that it oversees. If we have a legitimate, respectable system of justice, he and all the others named above and many more should be the subject of grand jury investigations involving massive dedication of FBI resources, just like all those celebrity parents were. In “Homeland”, the Dar Adal character ended up in prison. It’s fun to envision his real-life personification joining him there, but there is precious little visible evidence that anyone at DOJ is working to make that happen.

Our President just survived a slow-rolling coup attempt guided by Gestapo Chief, er, “Special Counsel” Robert Mueller. The people who led that attempt must not be allowed to walk away from it unscathed by the justice system.

So, yes, by all means, let the DOJ go after Jussie Smollett and toss him in the federal pen if he is indeed guilty.  But let’s not pretend that doing that should be the DOJ’s highest priority.

There are so many bigger fish to fry, and it’s long past time we saw someone who works for William Barr heating up the grease.

Trump Caps off a Terrific Tuesday by Using the “T” Word

Today’s Campaign Update
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

What the media won’t tell you about the Jussie Smollett whitewash…  – So, Jussie got off scott-free, and I don’t want to hear anyone talk to me about “white privilege” ever again. Talk to the hand, ‘cuz the ears ain’t listening.

Cook County state’s attorney Kimberly Foxx demonstrated yet again (as if we needed reminding) that Chicago politics are every bit as corrupt today as they were when Al Capone ran the city by allowing Smollett to skate on 16 felony charges brought after an exhaustive investigation by the Chicago police, saying that his “community service” and the forfeiting of his 10 grand in bail money constitutes “sufficient punishment” for his effort smear all Americans who support President Donald Trump. Pretty much no one outside of the actor’s family, circle of friends (which includes the Obamas and Kamala Harris) and cast of his failing TV show agreed.

Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel has been in the national public eye since he served as one of the many Clinton bag men during the mid-1990s. In all that time I’ve never found myself agreeing with him about anything. Until yesterday, that is, when he, seemingly as outraged as everyone else in America, called the prosecutor’s action “a whitewash from top to bottom.” Trust me, Rahm Emanuel knows a whitewash when he sees one.

Needless to say, Foxx’s corrupt deal with Smollett dominated the news cycle all day on Tuesday.  Here’s what didn’t dominate those news reports: Foxx’s super PAC was the beneficiary of a $408,000 contribution from… wait for it…GEORGE SOROS. Well, knock me over with a feather.

When you google “Soros $408,000 to Kimberly Foxx” you find that the Breitbart story linked above is the one and only story on this key item of information. That’s how horrible our fake news media truly is.

For those who are not aware, Soros announced a few years back that he was planning to spend $100 million investing in the campaigns of radical leftist local prosecutors like Foxx in his neverending efforts to destroy America from within. It’s a brilliant strategy when you think about it: After all, what better way to destroy our nation than by killing the public’s faith in its system of criminal justice? That’s what the Soros-created “Black Lives Matter” was all about, what the “hands up, don’t shoot” fantasy was all about, what Eric Holder and Loretta Lynch as Attorneys General was all about.

Many are speculating that Foxx may have been bribed to take her unsupportable action related to the Smollett case. I would submit that for a bribe to have taken place here, no direct exchange of funds need to have occurred. The influence could have been exerted with a simple promise from Soros or other major donor to pour even more money into that super PAC or the prosecutor’s favorite “charity” in the future. Not that Soros would ever do such a thing, of course. Winky-winky.

Another great day for Trump. – Many talking heads are calling the Smollett fiasco a “loss” for President Trump. That’s nuts. This is in fact a yuuuuuuuuuge win for the President, for the simple fact that everyone involved in making the corrupt deal is in fact a Democrat.

Combine that reality with the fact that Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s economy-killing “Green New Deal” went down in flames in the U.S. Senate by a vote of 57-0 with 43 Democrat cowards abstaining, and you see that MAGA Monday was followed by Terrific Tuesday. What a great week we have going here. Let’s keep it up.

How hypocritical are the Democrats when it comes to the Green New Deal? Even the bill’s senate co-sponsor, Ed Markey, refused to cast his vote in favor of the travesty.

This is also a yuuuuuuuuge win for the President, since it clearly demonstrates how un-serious the Democrats truly are when it comes to their “Climate Change” scam. After all, pretty much all of the senators who refused to go on record voting for the sham yesterday gave it their full-throated endorsement when it was introduced with great fanfare several weeks ago.

The party/fake news media joint talking points told us that this Green New Deal was literally going to save the planet, that the plant would literally die if we did not “do something” to save it, and that the way to “save” the planet was to abolish air travel, kill all the farting cattle, stop driving and build a bunch of rail lines, and destroy the free market system and become a socialist nation. Presumably, Hawaii would be on its own out there in the middle of the Pacific Ocean, but that’s ok because we’d all be genuflecting to some socialist strong man from now on and that would allow us to rewrite history and pretend Hawaii was never part of the country anyway.

Oh, and by the way, we only have 12 years to do all of this, or we’ll all diiiiiiiiieeeeeeeeeeeee!!!!!!!!!!!!!

But Tuesday, the same people who parroted all of these fake talking points said in effect, hey, just kidding.

Some of us already knew that, thanks.

And then this happened…:

He didn’t use the “T” word accidentally, folks. He does and says these things with specific intent. And we all “know the answer”, don’t we?

Yes, in our heart of hearts, we do.

That is all.

March 25 Was the BEST MONDAY EVER for Trump and his Supporters

Today’s Campaign Update
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Why did Monday ever have to end?  – Monday must have felt like a birthday, Christmas and Festivus all rolled up into one for President Donald Trump and the White House staff, as the good news started early in the morning and continued to pour in all day long.

Throughout the day, of course, they all got to watch as a parade of news-faking cretins flittered across their TV screens, vainly trying to concoct a rationalization for why they have been lying to their viewers and fans for more than two years as they promoted the Democrats’ “Russia Collusion” fantasy play. From Morning Joe and Mika and Donny Deutsch, to the despicable hack Carl Bernstein, to the contemptible Andrew Napolitano, to the seditious – no, make that treasonous – John Brennan, to the terminally unfunny and odious Stephen Colbert, with dozens of other circus clowns and cranks sprinkled liberally in between, the cascade of disgraced nitwits, dupes and just plain old liars was glorious.

As if that weren’t cause enough for joy in Trump Land, shortly after noon came the news that the Creepy Porn Lawyer had been indicted and arrested on charges of extortion and mail fraud. Yes, friends, the guy who everyone at MSNBC and CNN spent half of 2018 touting as a legitimate contender for the Democrats’ presidential nomination in 2020 due solely to the fact that he represented a porn star has been caught red-handed, as the Justice Department released damning telephone transcripts that show him explicitly blackmailing Nike for $25 million. Thus, a major tormentor of the President appears likely to soon be headed for the pokey.

But it got even better. It turns out that the Creepy Porn Lawyer’s alleged partner in this extortion plot is none other than attorney and – until yesterday – paid CNN “legal analyst” Mark Geragos. Yes, that Mark Geragos, the selfsame Mark Geragos whose most prominent current client happens to be …wait for it…oh, you have to wait for this one…JUSSIE SMOLLETT!!!!!

Yes, friends and neighbors, that would be the very same actor Jussie Smollett who is currently facing prison time of his own for creating an outrageous hoax in an effort to smear the President and everyone who supports him. That Jussie Smollett.

I swear I do not make this stuff up. The greatest, most imaginative fiction writer in world history could not in a million years make this stuff up.

But things just kept getting better and better all day long, as a seemingly endless stream of positive news stories for the President and his 2020 re-election ambitions came across the wire.  Here are some examples:

  • In Texas, all House Democrats boycotted a committee hearing on a bill that would …wait for it…OUTLAW INFATICIDE. Yeah, that’s not gonna play well with Texas voters next year.
  • Two-term New Mexico Senator Tom Udall announced he would not stand for re-election in 2020, opening up the seat for a strong GOP challenge.
  • Trump appeals court nominee Bridget Bade received a favorable cloture vote in the senate, paving the way for her to become the President’s 37th addition to the federal appellate courts, an all-time record for a first term president.
  • Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell announced the scheduling of a Senate vote on Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s hair-brained, economy-destroying “Green New Deal”, which Democrats had been desperate to avoid since it will force them to go on-record.
  • Education Secretary Betsy DeVoss announced that DOE has opened investigations into eight universities tied to the still-unfolding college admissions and bribery scandal.
  • While the Democrat Party remains mired in a slipperly-slope towards rank anti-Semitism, President Trump held a White House ceremony with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in which he formally recognized the Golan Heights as part of Israel.
  • To cap the day off, the Pentagon announced that it has formally authorized the transfer $1 billion to kick-start the building of the southern border wall.

It was, for this President and his supporters, the Best Monday Ever.

Let’s hope today is the Best Tuesday Ever. Might as well start a new trend.

That is all.

The Week in Review: Jussie, Alexandria, Ilhan and Various Other Frauds

The Campaign Update Week in Review
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

The Week in Review, courtesy of the @GDBlackmon Twitter Feed…

The week started with a really bad poll for the Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez/Bernie Sanders Democrats, and went downhill from there.:

And now a moment for some funny stuff…:

If you doubt that leftists hate you, all you have to do is listen to what their talking head heroes say on national television every day. Then the doubts will disappear.:

Bernie Sanders misspelled “Democrats” so I fixed if for him.:

Matt Walsh didn’t need a documentary on HBO to tell him Michael Jackson was a media-protected monster. Neither did I.:

Nick Searcy was fantastic in “Justified.” He’s even better on Twitter.:

Oh.

Amy Walter asks a very pertinent question, and I have a ready answer.:

CNN is garbage, Part 17,556.:

Actually, what drives people crazy is that she’s as powerful as an actual sentient human being.:

Oh, yeah, and this actually happened. No really, it’s not photo-shopped or CGI. Pinky-swear.:

The New York Times’ Maggie Haberman is a trained propagandist, er, “journalist”, oh yes she is.:

Here is Wisconsin’s new governor, announcing his effort to secure his state’s electoral votes for the Democrat nominee in 2020 via voter fraud.:

It’s a real blessing sometimes, this “Climate Change” thing.:

And now another brief comedy break…:

Oh, hell, and one more…:

Rep. Rob Bishop nails the essence of the Green New Deal.:

I’m sorry, but c’mon. Be serious.:

Dear Diary:

If “Global Warming” isn’t stopped soon, we’re all going to freeze to death.:

Leftwing propagandist David Corn won’t post photos here because he’s lying, and Sky Harbor Airport called him out on it.:

Kat Timpf is silly, and it’s showing.:

This is a big, big deal. Next, they’ll be writing off Florida.:

Hint: The backup plan’s name is Wendy Davis. No, really, I’m not kidding.:

Not surprising, since they can’t risk having any real journalist like Brit Hume or Bret Baier asking any tough questions. Utterly pathetic, but that is today’s Democrats for you.:

Oh, hey, Mitt Romney actually got to visit the Oval Office.:

Nick Short shows us how it all works.:

Please stop giving Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and her fellow Green New Deal promoters bad ideas!:

The Democrats were having a little trouble finding away to condemn Ilhan Omar’s rank anti-Semitism…:

Ok, c’mon – you know I’m right here.:

I’m right about this, too.:

He exists, he just doesn’t do anything.:

Finland provided us with another object lesson about socialism on Friday. Was anyone listening?:

I’m more than happy to concede the future of the Democrat Party to the likes of AOC and Ilhan Omar, just so long as we can concede the future of the GOP to the likes of Dan Crenshaw.

Traitors gonna traitor.:

Jussie’s in a bit of hot water.:

San Fran Nan applies the soft bigotry of low expectations to her new “rising star”.:

Just a thought…:

The week ended on a high note.:

Fake News Talking Heads Scorch Trump For Agreeing to a 10 Year-old Kid’s Request

Today’s Campaign Update
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Was he 1/1024th Indian, too? – Hey, we’re gonna need a new nickname for Fauxcahontas, ‘cuz now she’s pretending to be the reincarnation of Teddy Roosevelt.

That’s right, your favorite fake Indian decided yesterday that she needed a new schtick to help her bust through what has pretty much been a virtual media blackout on covering campaign, and decided it would just be a great thing start talking about breaking up all the big monopolies, as The Bull Moose did in the early 20th century with Standard Oil, the railroads and other big industrial “trusts”.

Of course, these days, the monopolies are not industrial in nature, but digital. Thus, Little Mouth Always Running’s announcement centered on busting up companies like Facebook, Amazon and Google. No word if Senator Whose Granny Had High Cheekbones plans on grabbing some of the long-dead President’s DNA so she can run a test on it, but it seems likely.

Speaking of media blackouts… – Unless you watch Fox News, you will have no idea at all that the U.S. military now believes that this very weekend will spell the death of ISIS as Allied troops overrun the few remaining square miles of territory still controlled by the terrorist group in Syria.

As the U.S. military-led offensive to rout the Calliphate cancer once and for all had been conducted over the last month, Fox has been the only television channel giving it any real coverage, with the others refusing to air film and photos of thousands of terrorist “soldiers” surrendering on the battlefield.

This is all in preparation for keeping President Trump’s January commitment to withdraw all but a handful of U.S. troops from Syria. That is exactly what needs to happen, given that ISIS still enjoys widespread support among the Syrian people, and that is an ongoing self-inflicted wound that no amount of U.S. military action can resolve.

The problem of ISIS is a problem of the Islamic soul, and continuing to have U.S. military personnel come home in body bags due to their involvement in this hopeless fight is a foolish action started by foolish presidents that this President was elected to end.

In case you get your news from the three major TV networks and missed it… – The effort by Chicago’s law enforcement community to make actor Jussie Smollett pay for his shameful hoax continued late Friday as a grand jury returned an indictment against him containing 16 felony counts of disorderly conduct.

The news-fakers at CNN ran a grudging story on its website with the following headline:  “Jussie Smollett Indicted on 16 Felony Counts for Allegedly Making False Reports.” The story’s first four paragraphs are structured to read like a defense of a falsely -accused man:

“‘Empire’ actor Jussie Smollett, who authorities say filed false reports of a crime, has been indicted on 16 felony counts by a Cook County grand jury.

The indictment charges Smollett, 36, with 16 counts of disorderly conduct.
Mark Geragos, one of Smollett’s attorneys and a CNN legal analyst, said the actor maintains his innocence and called the indictment “prosecutorial overkill.”
“This redundant and vindictive indictment is nothing more than a desperate attempt to make headlines,” Geragos said.”

Some of you non-Millennials may remember Mark Geragos as one of the sleazebag lawyers who defended both Michael Jackson and Scott Peterson. His career proves that even monsters are entitled to a strong defense under the law.

Ol’ Jussie’s not a monster – he’s just a Trump-hating jackass who perpetrated a poorly-planned hoax that wasted hundreds of thousands of taxpayer dollars, and the Chicago Police are going to hold him responsible for that, Geragos or not.

Why are DC media people and Never-Trumpers such pedantic creeps? – President Donald Trump just keeps driving America’s media nitwit class nuts, often without even trying.

Friday was a great example, as the President traveled down to Alabama to witness the devastation caused by this week’s terrible tornadoes, and visit with some of the survivors and families of victims.  During the course of that trip, the President was asked by several folks he met with at a local church facility if he would agree to sign their bibles. Those asking included several children and victims’ family members.

Being a normal person with an actual heart and not a pedantic Washington, DC media creep, the President readily agreed to sign the bibles – if he had refused, he would have been scorched by our fake news media, of course. But hey, he was scorched anyway, with talking heads on CNN and MSNBC tsk-tsking about the spectacle of an American president actually autographing Bibles of all things.

California Congressman Ted Lieu weighed in with a typically nasty tweet, but then had the good sense to delete it after he’d received massive pushback from his followers, admitting he’s so clueless he didn’t even know why the President was in Alabama in the first place. You just can’t make this stuff up:

Matthew Dowd, a minor figure in the Never-Trump movement who at one time in the past pretended to be a conservative, didn’t even have that much sense. Dowd issued at tweet in which he said “I don’t know who it is a worse commentary on: Trump actually signing Bibles in Alabama, or the people asking him to sign a Bible. Lordy Moses,” demonstrating his typical elitist’s contempt for both the current POTUS and ordinary Americans who are coping as best they can with a massive tragedy.

The truth is that tweet says a lot about Matthew Dowd, and none of it is good.

That is all.

The Week in Review: Farting Cows, Crafty Beavers, AOC Memes and Epic Swalwell Fail

The Campaign Update Week in Review
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

The Week in Review, courtesy of the @GDBlackmon Twitter Feed…

The week kicked off with the whole Jussie Smollett hoax coming apart, and James Woods summed the great irony of it all in a single 280-character message, as only he can do.

Meanwhile, fellow hoaxters like the Creepy Porn Lawyer mourned Jussie’s exposure:

While Jussie’s effort to smear President Trump, his millions of supporters and the City of Chicago was falling apart, a CNN reporter was helping one of his hoax’s faithful fans try on jackets, because of course that’s what a CNN reporter would do:

Shameless Self-Promotion Alert!:  All of this hoaxing and the fake news media’s willing promotion of it for two solids weeks led me to write this piece, which is worth a read in case you missed it, and (hint, hint) worth sharing if you’ve already read it:

CBS’s Lara Logan, a rare actual ethical journalist in a mainstream media ocean of shameful news-fakers, put her career on the line on Monday by telling the unvarnished truth about her dying profession:

The no-good very bad week for the New York Times’s chosen candidate, Kamala Harris, continued, as she obviously had no earthly idea what one of her staffers had posted on her own Twitter feed about the Jussie Smollett hoax. You can bet the week was even worse for the staffer, though:

Another real journalist, the great Sharyl Attkisson, had a noble thought, but one with obvious stumbling blocks that would have to be overcome:

From our Clowns are Everywhere files, well, I give you Juan Williams:

It was just another magnificent week for making fun of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez …:

Radio Host Greg Budell – who invites me on his show from time to time – sums up the Commie’s candidacy in 16 words…:

Speaking of making fun of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, here’s a pure masterpiece of memery:

What happens when fake “greens” obstruct the construction of oil pipelines? Canada dumps 120,000 barrels per day of it onto trains, greatly increasing air pollution and the potential for fatal accidents. Because, Climate Change or something…:

I was planning to write about 1,000 words on how the fake news media would fake its “reporting” on the Smollett hoax as it continues to play out, but Undercover Huber summed it all up perfectly in just 280 characters, so I wrote about other stuff instead:

Sometimes I wish James Woods wouldn’t mince his words so much. It’s always so hard to figure out what he’s really thinking…:

Oh, hey, this also happened…:

Here, detestable California creep congressman Eric Swalwell tries to portray himself as a hero by walking an extra block for a cup of coffee.  It didn’t work out well for him at all…:

Oh, hey, this happened on Tuesday, too.:

How does any editor worth a damn allow this headline to make it to print?:

Oh, yeah, and here’s what happens when the fake “greens” like Andrew Cuomo refuse to allow the construction of new natural gas pipelines, i.e., people have no heat:

Is anyone surprised by this? Because it doesn’t surprise me at all. Not even a little bit:

Shameless Self-Promotion Alert!: I was really on a roll this week, and if you missed this piece summing up the ongoing hoaxes by Jussie and AOC’s “Green New Deal”, here’s your chance to take it in and (hint, hint) share it:

Prove me wrong…:

Pretty sure we reached that point back during the Reagan Administration, but your point is well-taken (and if you haven’t seen the clip of Sir Charles lampooning Smollett, you need to watch it):

The inevitable end game of fascist socialism continues to play out in Venezuela…:

When Ben Shapiro posed a very pertinent question about the shady plea deal federal prosecutors entered into with notorious pedophile Jeffrey Epstein, I had a ready answer about two of the most frequent visitors to his private island where all the shenanigans took place. Our fake news media’s ongoing refusal to report the truth about the Clintons is one of the greatest stains in the history of the Republic:

With the Weekly Standard having gone belly up, the idiot dozen remaining #NeverTrump nitwits have a new platform for spreading their stupidity. Not surprisingly, it adopts one of the favorite tactics of leftwing activists. If this surprises you, you haven’t been paying attention to the leftward tilt of these fake “conservatives”, not that I blame you.:

And now for some good news that came through the ol’ Twitter feed on Friday…:

This was the NICEST thing I could think to say about Michael Steele on Friday evening when his despicable remarks came across the wires.  No wonder the RNC went to pot when he was serving as its chairman.:

Despicable Dianne Feinstein had a rare moment of cogent thought this week, which I captured here, even though I misspelled “admirable” in the process.:

Australians are already finding out the desperate costs of implementing just a tiny portion of the “Green New Deal” the hard way.:

Man, Breadline Bernie really needs to work on his Twitter self-awareness.:

In case you missed it due to the fake news media blackout on all the wonderful things President Donald Trump is accomplishing on your behalf, this happened this week.:

With all the reports about Amy Klobuchar forcing a staffer to clean the comb she’d taken out of her purse to eat a salad, it seemed to me everyone was missing the most disgusting part of it all.:

Since no one in the fake news media would dream of fact-checking leftwing activist and Q-list actress Alyssa Milano, I did it for them.:

Brett Kavanaugh is all like, “geez, I wish she and her fellow Democrats and the fake news media would have taken this attitude back in October.”:

Sometimes the Climate Scammers mess up and let the truth slip out…:

Speaking of Climate Scammers, the great Steve Goddard captures their essence with the perfect meme.:

Was this mean of me? Or were you thinking it too?:

And finally, I leave you with yet another of the best in a great week for AOC Twitter memes.:

That is all.

Jussie Smollett and Alexandria Ocasio Cortez – Keeping Hoax Alive

Today’s Campaign Update
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Hey, it worked for that other racist over in Virginia. – Virginia’s baby-killing racist governor Ralph Northam appears to have shown the way for leftwing nitwits caught doing bad things all over the nation, and Jussie Smollett’s been paying attention.

Basically, Gov. Blackface’s strategy has been to lie, deny and go about his business, a strategy copied by his Lt. Governor and Attorney General, all of whom have survived the media firestorm, such as it was, surrounding their bad acts, and continue to govern the once-great Commonwealth. Actors, even bad ones, are typically pretty good at observing and learning, and that’s what Smollett has obviously done.

After being arrested and arraigned and seeing Chicago Police Superintendent Eddie Johnson deliver one of the most epic press conferences in the city’s history at his expense Thursday morning, Smollett was right back on the set of his TV show, “Empire”, a few hours later, filming new scenes and lying and denying his role in blatant hoax he has perpetrated on our country.

“I wanted to say I’m sorry and, you know me, I would never do this to any of you, you are my family,” he reportedly told the cast and crew, “I swear to God, I did not do this.” Hooboy. So, the strategy adopted by Gov. Blackface is now being mainstreamed, and the Chicago PD, with its long, sordid history of corruption, had better hope its officers dotted every “i” and crossed every “t” in the conduct of their investigation.

Because here’s the deal on this, folks: The fake news media and Democrat Party hate the fact that they have been forced to report negative things about a guy they spent 2 solid weeks building up into some sort of modern-day civil rights hero. Jussie’s story fit their preferred narrative about President Trump and his supporters, and now they’ve been forced off that narrative, something they can’t happily abide.

If they find the slightest excuse to hang their hat on here in terms of some irregularity about how the Chicago PD went about its business, they will latch onto it and pound it into the public’s consciousness until Smollet has not only been set free but gotten the raise that apparently motivated him to plan and commit the hoax to begin with.

As impressive as Superintendent Johnson was in his press conference yesterday, history tells us that the chances the Chicago PD conducted itself strictly by the book in this case seem disturbingly slim. This story, and the fake news media’s treatment of it, isn’t over yet. Indeed, unlike the Northam case – which they’ve all dropped like a hot potato because there ain’t no way to get that atrocity back on the preferred narrative path – the media engagement on the Smollett case may be just beginning.

Green New Deal Update! – Professor at New York University – where Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez allegedly received a college “education” – Ian Bremmer issued a tweet that caught my highly-trained eye yesterday:

Bremmer is probably a huge fan of the socialist fantasy that the Green New Deal and its plan to replace the miracle of air travel with the popular 19th century mode of transportation represents, and he no doubt thinks those numbers are somehow impressive. But they would only be impressive to someone who has no knowledge of the actual history of high-speed rail and how ridiculously expensive it is to build and operate.

We’ve already seen the example of California having to cancel most of Jerry Brown’s great high-speed rail boondoggle as the original $29 billion cost estimate climbed well north of $100 billion with no end in sight. Yet, despite that clear object lesson, AOC and her fellow socialist Democrats would have us believe that we can just slap down hundreds of thousands of miles of high speed rail all over our country and make those pesky airplanes obsolete as a result, and do it all in a span of a mere decade.

Look again at Bremmer’s numbers: If you do the math and add them up (something AOC is likely incapable of doing) you’ll see that they total to a little over 27,000 miles. Globally. Worldwide.

Oh.

Again, that number might seem impressive to someone who, like AOC, has no understanding of the history of high speed rail. It becomes less impressive when one understands that the first such rail line was completed and put into operation in …wait for it…1964, just after Lyndon Johnson became president.

That’s right: In 55 years, the entire world has laid just 27,000 miles of high speed rail. For those who are math-challenged, that comes out to right at a paltry 500 miles per year, and no, I did not leave out a zero.

Oh.

But it gets even less impressive than that. The first successful test of a “high speed” electric rail system took place in … are you sitting down? … 1903, when an electric rail car designed by Siemens & Halske crossed a speed of over 200 kmph. That’s right: The “high-speed” rail technology has been around for 116 years, and in all that time, across the entirety of Planet Earth, just 27,000 miles of such rail has been successfully completed, and 19,000 of those miles were built by the one of the most brutal and heinous communist regimes in world history.

Oh.

As unimpressive as all that history is, even less impressive is just how “fast” these high-speed rail trains are able to run. The fastest in the world, the “maglev train service began operating in 2004 with trains reaching a top speed of 431 km/h (268 mph), and remains the fastest high-speed service in the world.”

Oh.

That’s the fastest, mind you. The standard for “high-speed” rail is that “new lines in excess of 250 kilometres per hour (160 mph) and existing lines in excess of 200 kilometres per hour (120 mph) are widely considered to be high-speed.”

Oh.

Meanwhile, your standard airliner operates at speeds of 400-500 mph, double and triple the average “high-speed” rail system. Plus, unless you’re on Southwest or just had bad luck, most flights go straight from departure to your final destination with no stops, or no more than one. If you read the fine print of the “Green New Deal” you’ll see that the socialists’ plan is for the transportation system to be “accessible to all”, meaning those “high speed” trains are going to be stopping in every city, town, village and convenience store along the way.

Oh.

So, if AOC and her compatriots have their way, all those quick weekend jaunts to Vegas some of you have been taking will become week-long, tiresome journeys. All you Texas Aggie fans who love to fly out on Fridays to take in your football team’s Saturday games with South Carolina and Alabama, forget it. The nation’s tourism business will die a very quick and ugly death. No more Disney World. No more Broadway. No more fun, no more joy, because the first job of socialism is to do away with fun and joy, after all. Then it all goes downhill from there.

Oh.

I hope you have enjoyed today’s little walk through “high-speed” rail history, which will also become your future if AOC and the rest of the Democrat commies get their way.

That is all.
