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.:

That is all.

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.

Why The Media Falls for Obvious Hoaxes: Because, Like Fox Mulder, They Want to Believe

Today’s Campaign Update, Part II
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Jussie, we hardly knew ye. – And just like that, Jussie Smollett’s obvious hoax, which was promoted by the entirety of your fake news media and a raft of craven Democrat politicians for two solid weeks because it fit their anti-Trump narrative, came to a crashing end. In case you missed it, news came down last night that Chicago Police had charged the neurotic actor with felony disorderly conduct and filing a false report. And thus, yet another media-promoted hoax – which was an obvious hoax from its first fake reports – crashes and burns with no one in the media bothering to apologize for their own conduct.

Some have speculated over the past few days about why it is that our fake news media keeps falling for this kind of transparent hoax, ruminating over all sorts of complex explanations.  But the reality is really quite simple: The overwhelmingly naive, biased, rage-filled leftist “journalists” who infest the nation’s newsrooms quite simply want to believe anything that reflects negatively on President Donald Trump and/or his supporters.

Think of these people as a bunch of Fox Mulders from the old X-Files series, only not quite. Despite Mulder’s constant refrain of “I want to believe,” his character did consistently employ a healthy dose of skepticism in his investigations of “paranormal” activities, many of which ended up being blatant hoaxes. So, despite his desire to “believe” in the story line laid out before him, his healthy skepticism meant he had nothing to apologize for at the end of each episode.

Contrast that to the on-air leftwing activists at CNN and MSNBC, and the anti-Trump fanatics who pose as “editors” and “reporters” at the New York Times and Washington Post, not to mention disgraceful digital sites like the Daily Beast and the Huffington Post. Every time some obvious hoax that would cast negative light on the President or someone associated with him arises, some combination of these media outlets invariably become the ring-leaders of the fake media mob.

Think about it: All of these media outlets still desperately cling to the “Russia Collusion” fantasy, despite public knowledge that the entire thing was concocted by the Hillary Clinton campaign, despite the public knowledge that it is based entirely on a fake “Dossier” compiled by foreign agents who were on the Clinton/DNC payroll, despite the failure of multiple congressional committees and a 21-month-long Special Counsel investigation to turn up a shred of evidence implicating the President in any wrongdoing.

Why is that? Because they want to believe. The hoax fits their preferred narrative, after all. Why be skeptical? Why employ some modicum of journalistic standards, when your personal bias and greatest longings in life have been confirmed?

These and other fake media outlets still treat Christine Blasey Ford as some sort of heroic angel despite the reality that pretty much everything she testified to against Brett Kavanaugh has been proven to have been false. But hey, why let facts get in the way of a good anti-Trump narrative? They want to believe.

These same fake media outlets spent two weeks in January smearing a bunch of Catholic school kids for no real reason other than a few of them were wearing MAGA caps and one of them was – gasp! – smiling! Their smearing of these children was based entirely on an obviously-edited video, even though the full video clearly demonstrated the kids were the ones who had been assaulted and had done nothing wrong.  But the edited version fit the Democrat/media narrative about anyone who supports the President, so they all went with that instead. On Tuesday, the cretins at the Washington Post got named in a $250 million libel suit for those efforts. Hopefully more such filings will follow.

There have been at least two dozen times over the past two years in which either the Times or the Post published stories based solely on “anonymous sources” making some wild claim about either President Trump or Donald, Jr. or someone in the Administration, stories that immediately created an online feeding frenzy from all the other fake media outlets, and stories that within 24-48 hours were proven to be utterly and laughably fake.  Hoaxes. Obvious hoaxes from the start, to anyone with a modicum of skepticism.

But the media wanted to believe those stories and repeated them in a frenzy without the slightest analysis.

The Smollett case stank to high heaven from the very first report. We were asked to believe that, in heavily-liberal Chicago, on a night when the temperature was well below zero, there were these “white supremacist” guys roaming around wearing MAGA caps, looking for some no-account actor to assault. We were asked to believe that these MAGA white guys shouted “this is Trump country” and various racial slurs during their assault, and even had a rope handy to wrap around Smollett’s neck.

Even better, we were asked to believe that Smollett’s Subway sandwich escaped unharmed during the assault, and that Smollett sat around for 45 minutes wearing the rope while he ate said sandwich, and still had it around his neck when the police arrived. Even better than that, we were supposed to believe these MAGA-cap white supremacists had splattered Smollett with bleach even though the temperature was about 30 degrees below the point at which bleach freezes.

An obvious hoax.  A hoax so transparent that Fox Mulder wouldn’t even have wanted to believe it. But the entirety of our fake news media and leadership of the Democrat Party sure as hell did. They all fell for it hook, line and sinker, going out of their way to deploy racially-charged language in their statements and tweets in which they referred to the “victim” in glowing terms.

They wanted to believe because it fit their preferred narrative.

Now that the media’s hero has been revealed as a complete fraud and will go to trail for his crimes, the media will no doubt support his almost-certain efforts to claim that he is actually the real victim here: A victim of depression, a victim of bi-polar disorder, a victim of some sort of mental or emotional malady that he and his lawyers hope will get him sentenced to rehab rather than jail time. And once whatever sentence he receives has been completed, Smollett will no doubt be paid millions by some book publisher and millions more for the movie rights to his “story”, and the fake media will award its hero with gobs of free airtime and print space to promote whatever he’s hawking.

Because that’s what our fake reporters and editors and talking heads do with their favored frauds. They want to believe, and one way or another, they will.

It really is that simple. No further analysis required.

That is all.

The Commie is in, Oily Rod is Out, Kamala is Confused – the Clown Show Never Ends

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

In the future you might want to read your own Twitter feed, Senator. – Trust me on this, you do not want to be the staffer who runs Kamala Harris’s Twitter feed today. At a campaign event in New Hampshire, the not-ready-for-prime-time presidential candidate was asked an actual question by a non-CNN reporter who wasn’t interested in helping her try on clothes, and mass stammering and dissembling ensued:

Many observers marveled that she didn’t have a ready answer to this exact question, given her absurd knee-jerk reaction to the first reports about Smollett’s obvious hoax, in which she tweeted in part that it was “a modern-day lynching.”

Well, that statement appeared on her Twitter account, anyway. But the obvious answer here is that Harris does not run her own Twitter feed, and her staff had failed to inform her about the idiotic and inflammatory nonsense they’ve been posting there.  Thus, when this question came up, Harris had no earthly idea what the reporter was referring to. The issue here is not about Harris having a bad memory about something she tweeted; the issue is about her staff who actually wrote and posted the tweet not having sense enough to brief her about the stupid sh*t they’ve been saying on her Twitter account.

Seems like a management problem to me, and managing staff is one of any president’s most important tasks. Not a great start.

Hey, the Commie’s running again – isn’t life grand? – In case you missed it because your fake news media mavens are too busy talking about the fall of their favorite “Empire” role-player, Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders will kick off his 2020 campaign to secure the Democrat Party’s presidential nomination by promising all sorts of free stuff to young people with lots of student loan debt today. So, the old Bolshevik is making another run at nationalizing all of your assets and doling them out to people who vote for him, keeping a healthy skim off the top like all good Commies do.

Bernie’s problem this time will be one of figuring out a way to stand out from the crowd. In 2016 he was just running against this crazy life-long grifter in a pantsuit who kept coughing and fainting and lying about her illegal email server. This time he’ll find himself in the midst of a field filled with younger fellow commies who are all doing their dead-level best to run even further to the political left than your ordinary, every day commie. Oh, and Joe Biden will be running, too.

The problem is, if you’re Bernie Sanders, how do you get even further to the left than you already are? He’s already out there for $6 to $10 trillion to forgive all those outstanding student loans (dammit, sure wish I hadn’t already paid mine back!), $40 trillion for his “Medicare for All” scheme, and $100 trillion for the hare-brained “Green New Deal” nightmare. As the great Margaret Thatcher famously said, “the problem with socialism is that you eventually run out of other people’s money” to steal, and that applies even in a country as wealthy as the United States.

But hey, Bernie’s just another Democrat – yes, yes, I know he pretends to be an “independent” but I’m trying to be honest here – who is appealing to voters who can’t be bothered with references to reality or have their brainwashed minds be distracted by facts. And that makes him little different than Kamala Harris, Corey Booker, Kirsten Gillibrand or any of the other two dozen or so competitors who will ultimately be in this clown car race.

But, for better or worse, the Commie’s in! Let the Bolshevik games begin!

As the Commie jumps in, Oily Rod plans his exit. – The news fakers at CNN, MSNBC, the New York Times and the Washington Post are all down in the mouth this morning over reports that our perpetually oily Deputy Attorney General, Rod Rosenstein, is planning to leave his post by mid-March. Your fake reporters and fake talking heads are all depressed because of the assumption that this likely means that Gestapo Chief, er, “Special Counsel” Robert Mueller will also be wrapping up his fake investigation at the same time.

Rosenstein, seeing the handwriting on the wall, announced back in late January that he would voluntarily step down shortly after new Attorney General William Barr was confirmed and had assumed office, an event that happens today. Multiple reports citing sources out of the Justice Department indicate that Mueller, with the exit of his utterly corrupt over-seer, is planning to shut his failed coup attempt down at the same time.

Now, America will get to see whether Mr. Barr is a well-intentioned patriot intent on doing what he can to restore a one-tiered system of justice in our country, or just another Deep State thug who will perpetuate the thinly-veiled cover-up of all the crimes committed against the Trump Campaign and Trump Administration by the Comey/Rosenstein/McCabe-led cabal that operated within the DOJ and FBI throughout 2016 and well into 2017.

Our country has seen enough of the McCabes, Comeys and Strzoks being fired and allowed to walk around shooting their mouths off and making millions writing books and giving speeches while no one at DOJ makes any effort to hold them accountable for their roles in the outright coup d’etat attempt they created and managed. Neither Jeff Sessions nor Matthew Whitaker seemed interested in lifting a finger to correct this unjust situation.

Barr has an opportunity to change all of that, starting today. But the most disturbing thing about Barr is that those who know him keep describing him as this “stand-up guy”, an “old pro” with an “unimpeachable character.”

You know, the exact same things we were all told about Robert Mueller back in 2017.

So if you’re expecting some sort of swift action to bring all of these Deep State skunks and snakes to justice now that Barr’s in office, well, a healthy dose of skepticism appears to be in order here.

It’s like my Dad used to always respond whenever I’d say “I wish” something would happen: You can wish in one hand and spit in the other and see which one fills up faster.

That is all.

The Fake News Enemies of the People Promote Our Constant State of Outrage

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

These particular white supremacists don’t appear to fit the profile. – If you’ve been keeping up with the whole Jussie Smollett hoax, you’ll know that the cat finally rushed out of the bag on Friday, when Chicago police released a photo of the two “attackers” who Smollett had described as being white supremacists wearing MAGA caps and screaming “this is Trump country!” while they assaulted him. Here’s the photo of the “white supremacists”:

Oh.

Turns out these are two brothers from Nigeria who are now confirming to police what some of us have known all along: That the entire episode is a hoax schemed up by an incredibly insecure person to smear President Donald Trump and everyone who supports him.

It’s important to remember that pretty much everyone in our fake news media spent an entire week participating in and perpetuating the hoax, just as they participated in and perpetuated the smearing of the Covington Catholic School kids a couple of weeks earlier. If you want to understand why so many Americans spend their lives in a near-constant state of outrage, look no further than the talking head on your television screen or editorial board of your local newspaper.

CBS news is perhaps the most guilty of participating in this brand of outrage fake journalism this week, dedicating its “60 Minutes” program to airing a puff piece fake interview with disgraced ex-FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe in yet another effort to revive the rotting corpse of the media/Democrat “Russia Collusion” fantasy play. It is an absolute disgrace to the journalistic profession – whose own corpse is getting pretty smelly at this point – that a major media outlet would grant so much airtime to the promotion of a book that is little more than a 300-page smear of a duly-elected President of the United States.

Oh, wait, McCabe’s book is more than that, isn’t it? It is actually a 300-page outlining of a coup d’etat attempt that was organized and managed by a cabal of Obama holdovers at the FBI and DOJ. It is an outright admission of high treason, a plan to overturn the result of a national election. In a sane world, Mr. McCabe wouldn’t be on national TV being interviewed by the terminally smarmy Scott Pelley, he’d be sitting at the defendant’s table at a trial before a jury of 12 of his peers.

And we can’t blame the media alone for our state of perpetual outrage: They only do it in their unending efforts to support and provide cover for the Democrat Party, whose entire model for “success” relies on the Saul Alinsky/George Soros tactic of pitting one class of people against another.

In the latest of a million examples of this reality, Heather Nauert withdrew her name from consideration to become our country’s new ambassador to the United Nations late last week due to the constant assaults on her reputation and family from the Democrats and the fake news media. Her biggest crime? She apparently employed an illegal alien as a maid and paid her in cash.

Yes, friends, the exact same people who promote open borders so that all these poor people from Latin America can come into our country and “do the work Americans won’t do” went after Ms. Nauert for employing a poor person from Latin America for “doing the work Americans won’t do”. You seriously cannot make this stuff up.

Nor is the tactic limited to the national media – it is a constant feature in more local media, too. In Texas, out here in flyover country where I live, both the Fort Worth Star Telegram and Houston Chronicle were forced to retract a story from last week in which they accused Texas Republican Lt. Governor Dan Patrick of under-paying his property taxes.

When a friend commended the newspapers for correcting their story, I pointed out to him that no apology would have been necessary were both media outlets not so overly-anxious to smear any politician with an “R” next to his or her name. Indeed, if Dan Patrick were a Democrat, no story would have ever been printed, much less rushed to press without doing the 2 minutes of research needed to figure out that the reason why Patrick’s taxes on his home had gone down instead of up from one year to the next was because he had properly filed for the state’s homestead exemption, a tax reduction program to which every Texas citizen is entitled on their place of residence.

There is nothing to admire in what the Star Telegram and Chronicle did, just as there is nothing admirable about CBS promoting a criminal’s book or CNN and MSNBC spending 24 hours a day, 7 days a week promoting the latest smear du jour. It’s all just a part of the same tactic, the same business model, the same effort to fake the news in support of a favored political party.

When the news media is fake, our entire society suffers. If you want to see the true enemies of the people, just pick up a newspaper or turn on your TV. You can’t miss ’em.

That is all.

The Week in Review: Anti-Semite Dems, High Treason and Jussie Smollett

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

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

James Woods started the week out with a tribute to the Democrats’ “Green New Deal,” and things only got smellier from there:

If you aren’t following @mad_liberals on Twitter, you’re missing out on a ton of fun:

That time Minnesota Cong. Ilhan Omar apologized for being a raging anti-Semite, but really didn’t apologize at all:

If only we had an education system that actually educated anyone…:

Hey, I had no idea so many Virginia Democrats went to Rice University back in the day!:

Summing up the “competing” rallies between the POTUS and a loser in a senate race out in El Paso Monday night.:

The perfect endorsement for today’s Democrat Party.:

Why not? All the other communists are doing it.:

Kamala Harris is slowly morphing into Hillary Clinton before our very eyes. No wonder she’s become CNN’s chosen child.:

In actual real news from Tuesday…:

The inevitable outcome of the Democrats’ war on masculinity.:

Here I put college students’ current infatuation with AOC into proper historical context.:

Well, God Bless Texas, then.:

Speaking of Texas and energy…:

Seriously, is there any true thing Alexandria Ocasio Cortez actually does know? It is truly stunning that a human being can hold a college degree and be so breathtakingly ignorant.:

High treason news broke out all over the place on Thursday, and your fake news media scrambled to portray it as just a bunch of patriotic FBI guys doing their best to protect the nation from the evil Orange Man. Because of course they did. *sigh*:

Speaking of faking the news, the folks at Politico seem to be ramping up their efforts in that competition in recent weeks.:

Then this happened…:

…and the nitwit who led the effort opposing 25,000 new jobs and tens of billions in annual economic impact celebrated, because what else would a raging ignoramus do?:

As Jussie Smollett’s obvious hoax began officially falling apart, Chuck Ross accurately predicted the way all the fake journalists who did everything they could to promote the effort to smear every Trump supporter in the nation would respond.:

This explains how the Enemy Within, Ilhan Omar, got her seat in congress.:

Quick! Somebody load a chopper with food and get it up there!:

Why, it almost seems as if the fake news media is trying to mislead the public on Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s true health status. Go figure.:

From our Some Things Never Change file…:

Enemies of the people, plain and simple.

That is all.
