Brace Yourselves, Because this Democrat Clown Show has Just Begun

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

Creepy Joe crashing, Mayor Pete plummeting, the Incredible Shrinking Beto, and more.:  The fallout in the various polls from last week’s Democrat debates has been fast, fierce and entirely predictable. The winners and losers of those debates were obvious, at least in terms of how the demented Democrat voter base would react. As usual, the fake news media and their “experts” and “analysts” had little clue about any of that.

Take Mayor Pete Buttigieg as a great example. All the “expert” talking heads at CNN and MSNBC and Fox ooohed and ahhhed about his simple admission that “I couldn’t get it done” when asked why he’s been unable to do a single damn thing to ease the seething racial tensions in South Bend during his seven long years as Mayor. All the smart people smiled and declared the fake news media’s latest Democrat date as one of the “clear winners” of the second night’s debate. The same pundits and “experts” all marveled again on Friday as Mayor Pete announced that his campaign raised about $24 million during the second quarter of the year, apparently forgetting that President Donald Trump raised that amount in the first 24 hours of his campaign.

We have now had four new polls come out in the wake of the debates (The Hill/HarrisX, Politico/Morning Consult, CNN and Quinnipiac), and Mayor Pete has lost ground from his prior 7% support level in each and every one of them. He’s at a pitiful 4% in the most current poll, from Quinnipiac, and hilariously receives … wait for it … ZERO percent support from Black voters.

Ouch.

Then there’s the Incredible Shrinking Beto, the fake news media’s former fave Democrat date, Irish Bob O’Rourke. Irish Bob was already sucking wind going into the debates, sitting at an average of about 4% support in the various polls. In the four polls released this week, he comes in at 4, 3, 2, and 1. The man is headed to 0 with a bullet.

The goofy and insufferable ex-Texas congressman compounded his horrific debate performance by going to Juarez, Mexico (hey, if you can’t attract support in America, try another country!) the next day and announcing that all these illegal aliens from central America have no choice but to get paid by Soros operatives to travel to the U.S. because of … wait for it … CLIMATE CHANGE. Because of course that’s what he said. Turns out not even most incredibly gullible Democrat voters who love to be lied to are buying into that particular whopper.

I’ve been telling y’all that the once-impressive polling lead held by America’s Unfrozen Caveman Senator would be gone by October. Well, after his wooden, confused and feeble debate performance, that timetable has sped up considerably. Unless some unforeseen sequence of events intervenes, Creepy Uncle Joe will be lucky to lead in any of these polls, real or fake, come late August. In the two most-current of those four polls, CNN and Quinnipiac, his support level that hovered in the mid-40s just two months ago is now down to 22%.

Indeed, after his terrible exchange with Kamala Harris during the debate, Biden finds himself virtually tied with the opportunistic California Senator in Quinnipiac, leading her by just 22% – 20%.  Yikes.

What about Bernie Sanders, you ask? Well, The Commie appears to be on the same path as Irish Bob, albeit with still-higher numbers. In the four polls in question, his numbers have come in at 19, 15, 14, and 13. The old Bolshevik apparently thought it would be a great idea to not prepare for this first debate, and just parrot the same answers he’d given during his debates with the Fainting Felon four years ago. Amazingly, Democrat voters seem to be growing weary of his tiresome Marxist messaging, something no one could have ever possibly predicted, including yours truly.  Go figure.

I also seem to have missed on my prediction that Fauxcahontas would get a boost from being seated at the kiddie table in the first debate with a bunch of people who all were polling at 4% or less. Her numbers are still hovering around 12%, which is right where her average was before the debate took place. I have long suspected that Lieawatha is going to have the same problem experienced by the Coughing Crook, i.e., that the more public exposure she gets, the less the public is going to like her. That dynamic could be kicking in here.

Looking around, it does not appear that any of the myriad other candidates in the race got any sort of real bounce out of the debates. The fake news media has now figured out that Julian Castro is the only actual, real Hispanic candidate and is now doing its best to give him a boost with gobs of free air time, but that is not resulting thus far in any noticeable movement in his numbers. Conversely, the media is still doing everything it can to ignore the only actual interesting people in the race – Tulsi Gabbard, Andrew Yang and Marianne Williamson – no doubt adhering to their marching orders from the DNC, which hates them all and wants them out of the race as soon as possible.

The Democrat Party, the party of “diversity,” cannot tolerate anything resembling real diversity of thought in its presidential race, after all.

At the end of the day, the control being exerted by the DNC, in concert with its toadies in the media, is why we see this race rapidly boiling down to what will become a long, tough slog involving Creepy Uncle Joe, The Commie, Kamala, and Fauxcahontas, with Mayor Pete and Cory Booker continuing to hang around yapping at everyone’s heels so long as their money holds out.

If you think this clown show you’ve witnessed thus far is unimpressive, well, you are not alone. You can bet that the Pantsuit Princess is sitting up in Chappaqua, grinning her evil grin as she sips her third chardonnay of the morning, day-dreaming about how she will waltz into next year’s hung convention and present herself as the Party’s savior yet again.

Stranger things have happened, and stranger things will happen again before this is all over.

That is all.

Democrat Presidential Candidates are Killing Their Party With Honesty

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

Of course, Kamala Harris lied: She’s a Democrat. – Several readers responded to yesterday’s Campaign Update by informing me about media reports indicating Kamala Harris lied during Thursday’s debate when she claimed her elementary school class was the first to be integrated when she went into first grade in 1970.

Jim Hoft at Gatewaypundit.com dug up 1963 yearbook photos from the high school Harris attended in Berkeley, CA (because of course she grew up in Berkeley – where else?). That yearbook shows a fully-integrated class of students. Harris, as a reminder, was born in 1964.

So, she lied. She’s a Democrat, after all, and Democrats lie to get elected. It’s what they do. It’s what they have to do in order to win elections. That is as it has always been, and it is as it always will be. The moment Democrats start telling voters the truth about what they really plan to do, and the impact their plans would really have on our society is the moment their party becomes completely non-viable as a national entity.

In fact, it doesn’t even take Democrats being honest about their policies to see this phenomenon happen – all it takes is for them to begin implementing their real agenda so that the people begin to see with their own eyes what it really is. That happened when Barack Hussein Obama his own self got elected in 2009 and immediately nationalized the nation’s healthcare industry and tried to saddle the country with an economy-destroying cap-and-trade system on carbon.

Even though Democrats continued to shamelessly lie about all of that (“If you want your plan, you can keep your plan”), the blowback against the party was immediate and harsh. Voters who suddenly realized the horrible mistake they’d made in the 2008 elections went out and turned the House of Representatives over to the Republicans in the 2010 mid-terms. The gridlock that created in the legislative process, combined with the GOP nominating the feckless Mitt Romney enabled Obama to recover enough to be re-elected in 2012. But, after Obama switched tactics from legislating to trying to kill the economy by regulating it to death, we had the sea-change 2014 election in which Republicans swept to big majorities in both houses of congress, 33 of the 50 governor’s offices and full control of both houses in over 30 state legislatures.

In six short years, voters seeing the reality of the Obama agenda had relegated the Democrat Party to a marginalized, regional party concentrated in the coastal Northeast, and the West coast. The rest of the national map was a virtual sea of red, interrupted only by small blue pockets concentrated in inner cities.

Remember, Obama had to lie his butt off in order to get elected in 2008. Most people forget this, but he actually ran as a “moderate” against the disastrous John McCain, making no promises to nationalize healthcare or implement a disastrous cap and trade program. The real nature of his far-left agenda only became apparent after he was safely in the Oval Office.

This brings us to the danger in which this current crop of mediocre presidential candidates are placing their party: They are being far, far too honest with the American people about what their agenda really is. This, ironically, is due mostly to the influence that Bernie The Commie Sanders and the childish, attention-grabbing antics of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez have had on the party.

These candidates see all the media spotlight focused on AOC and all the nitwits who follow them on social media squealing for all sorts of radical, outright Marxist and anti-American policy positions, and they become desperate to fall in line like the good little socialists they really are at heart. You must also keep in mind that the vast majority of professional campaign advisors are young people (because as people mature, we tend to want to go do something actually productive with our lives), which today means Millennials. So, regardless of the age of the politician, the advice they are getting tends to skew them to the radical left.

As a result, we saw the spectacle of the two debates this week. Where Democrats in 2009/2010 said “If you like your plan, you can keep your plan,” this week they all said “If you like your plan, we will take it away from you and make you pay the healthcare costs of millions of new illegal aliens.”

And hey, those aliens won’t even be illegal anymore, because each and every one of the 20 people on stage this week also endorsed the nation-destroying idea of decriminalizing border crossings, i.e., open borders. Even more, they’re going to eliminate ICE and de-fund the Border Patrol so that everyone on earth can just swim across the Rio Grande to get their free healthcare.

Oh, and they’re going to raise all of your taxes to pay for multi-trillion dollar schemes like forgiving student loans, the Green New Deal and various other “Climate Change” socialist “plans”, Medicare for all, and on and on and on. The Commie came right out and went full Walter Mondale Thursday night, admitting that he plans to raise taxes on the middle class to pay for all of his Marxist programs. Heads nodded in agreement all over the stage. It’s never a good idea to go full Walter Mondale, people.

These Democrats are so desperate to appeal to their demented, radicalized base voters in order to win the nomination that they are forgetting the single biggest key to ultimately getting elected: Deceiving everyone else about their real intentions.

That particular Genie jumped right up out the bottle this week on national television for all to see. You can bet the Trump campaign is already rolling the video into general election ads as you read this.

For most people, the truth shall set you free. But for Democrats, the light of truth is a death ray.

That is all.

Kamala Harris Became a Political Powerhouse in Debate #2

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

Kamala Harris became a serious contender for the Democrat nomination last night. The Willie Brown paramour from California won the debate by landing a massive body blow on front-runner Joe Biden, putting her star on the rise in the race and accelerating Biden’s inevitable fall.

Watch this clip – it is devastating for Biden:

“It’s a mis-charicteration (sic)” are the first words out of our nation’s Unfrozen Caveman Senator’s mouth. He looks like one of the old Democrat segregationists he “got stuff done” with back in the 1970s, an age that most Democrat voters cannot even remotely relate to. He sounds old, he sounds programmed, everything he talks about is stuff that happened damn near half a century ago.

And then, he is so shaky, so unsure of himself, so out of canned talking points, that he becomes the first person in the history of presidential debates to …wait for it … cut himself off.

That boy done. And Kamala is off to the races. That clip getting played constantly on all the cable channels and all the social media platforms will add 5 points to her polling support in a week, maybe more.

The “Look at Me ‘Cuz I’m So Weird” award goes without any question at all to goofball author Marianne Williamson, who, when asked what her first priority upon assuming the presidency would be, actually said this:

“My first call is to the prime minister of New Zealand, who said that her goal is to make New Zealand the place where it’s the best place in the world for a child to grow up,” said Williamson. “I would tell her, ’Girlfriend, you are so wrong!”

Williamson is so overwhelmingly weird that even the weirdos at the Huffington Post went off on her performance this morning. That’s weird.

Her closing statement capped off a night of weirdness, probably capping off her vanity project campaign for good, as the DNC will now instruct their media toadies to keep her off the air and out of future debates:

Honestly, I can’t tell if she was threatening to defeat the President in next year’s general election or propositioning him. All conservatives should immediately contribute money to her campaign to ensure she is able to stay in this race, just as a practical joke.

The embarrassing MSNBC/NBC moderators did their best to ignore Williamson, allowing her less than 5 minutes of time to air her her grievances against New Zealand and praise her spirit guides, but if you’re Andrew Yang, you’re thinking “damn, sure wish I’d have gotten that extra two minutes!” this morning. Yang, the only actual semi-interesting person on that stage last night, the guy who campaigns on his claim to have a million ideas, was only given 2:58 to express them by the DNC/fake media cabal desperately hoping to kill him off before he can catch any fire in the race.

By comparison, Biden got 13:19 to talk about all the great stuff he did during the Nixon Administration, Harris got 12:16, Mayor Pete was awarded 11:21 for being the bestest hall monitor in the field, and the old Commie got 10:58 to spout all of his Stalinist nostrums.

Yang did get the consolation prize by winning the Drudge insta-poll following the debate. Yang pulled in over 28% of the vote in that measure, probably because his paltry time speaking ended up irritating fewer Americans than everyone else. Hilariously, Williamson actually came in third in that poll, pulling over 12% support, while Kamala Harris was second at 17%.

Who had the worst night? Other than Biden, you’d have to point to John Hickenlooper, Kirsten Gillibrand, Michael Bennett and Eric Swalwell, all of whom were the same non-factors in the debate that they’ve been thus far in the campaign. You can just stick a fork in all of ’em.

The Commie was the Commie, sounding and looking exactly as he sounded and looked in the 2016 race with the Pantsuit Princess. Being the only outright Commie in that race, he was able to give the Fainting Felon a race for her money. His problem this time, though, is that there are a ton of other outright commies in the race, and they’re really cutting into his support base.

Sanders spent his time pounding on every boogeyman imaginable, as Commies always do: The Medical industry, drug makers, corporate bigwigs in general, ICE, the Border Patrol, President Trump, Climate Change, conservative judges, senate Republicans – all of those handy boogeymen and more enjoyed their time in last night’s Bolshevik spotlight. He’s a tiresome old hack trading on nothing but fear and empty promises, which of course is why depraved Democrat voters love him.

Last night didn’t harm him, but it didn’t do him any good, either. Expect him to fall in the polls over the next couple of weeks, and expect both Fauxcahontas and Harris to pass him.

Hey, what about Mayor Pete? Last night was set up by the DNC and NBC to be his breakout moment, that jumpstart that would move his campaign into the next gear. He did fine in the debate by all accounts, but none of the media coverage is focused on him this morning.

And Buttigieg’s biggest problem comes in the only measure that really matters in these debates: Optics. Standing there on that stage next to the much, much taller Unfrozen Caveman Senator, Mayor Pete just looked like a high school sophomore trying to debate the school principal. After his awful weekend back in South Bend, Buttigieg needed to have a moment last night in which he showed real authority and empathy, especially for African Americans, in order to break out of that Optics trap.

He didn’t do that. Thus, his campaign, which had already stagnated in the 6-7% support level in the various polls, will continue to stagnate. You may even see his level of support begin to slowly drop, as frustrated potential supporters turn their heads to Kamala and Fauxcahontas.

So, here are the winners and losers from the Second Debate:

Winners:

Kamala Harris, and it isn’t close

Losers:

Everyone else

This race is shaking out very quickly, despite the crowded field. Now that she’s had her breakout moment, Kamala Harris is going to be hard, hard, hard for the other candidates to take down.

Think about it: How’s it going to look to identity-politics-oriented Democrats when two old, gray-haired white guys start going after the lone woman of color in the field? Exactly. So you won’t see them do that. And if they can’t go after her, how are they going to stop her?

Good question. Glad I don’t have to answer it.

That is all.

The Democrat Debates Will be a Money-Taking-and-Spending Orgy

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

Boy, this is going to be one expensive pair of debates. – Last week, I rolled out a proposed drinking game to play during this week’s pair of Democrat debates: Take a shot of tequila every time one of the candidates makes a proposal that would cost more than $1 trillion. You’ll be dead within an hour.

At the rate this motley collection of miscreants, sloths, Commies and grifters is going, I’m going to have to revise that death estimate down to about 20 minutes.

Here are some examples of the trillions the various candidates have been proposing to spend just over the past 48 hours:

Bernie Sanders – The Commie proposes to just make all outstanding student loans vanish into thin air, and says he’ll pay for it with an unspecific “tax on Wall Street.”

Hey, guess who invests in the undefined boogeyman that Democrats refer to as “Wall Street”? Hundreds of millions of ordinary, every day Americans, including anyone who owns an IRA, a 401(k) or any other form of investment account. That’s who would really pay that “tax on Wall Street.”

Fauxcahontas – Princess Little Big Moneyspender, meanwhile, most recently proposed to pay “marriage reparations” to gay couples who had to file as “single” during the years before the law was changed.

Hey, do you think any enterprising Democrat candidate will think to propose to pay “student loan reparations” to us Baby Boomers who paid off not only our own student loans but also those of our children? Because I’ll be signing up for that one.

Irish Bob O’Rourke – Not to be outdone, Irish Bob introduced a new proposal over the weekend that would “help” veterans and their families by levying a special tax on families that do not include veterans or current military members. Thus, the former “rising star” of the Democrat Party finds a new way to not only violate all sorts of constitutional principles of taxation, but also to divide Americans even more than they already are by pitting family against family.  Disgraceful.

Kamala Harris – One reason why Harris has faded in the race is that she’s just been running around basically saying “me too!” to the spending ideas of others. She’s for crashing the banking system by “forgiving” trillions in student loans; for any identity-based spending idea that comes along, like Warren’s “marriage reparations”; for paying reparations to millions of slave descendants; for pretty much anything that might get her a mention on the NBC Nightly News, basically.

So, anytime a question is asked of Harris, just go ahead and take a shot before she even answers, because you know whatever she says is coming right out of your pocket.

Cory Booker – I think I’ve just figured out why Cory Booker is performing so poorly in this race: He’s making a proposal that does NOT involve stealing money from one class of people to give to another or to divide the nation. His new deal involves setting up what he would call a “clemency panel” that would review the cases of 17,000 to 20,000 non-violent drug offenders currently serving time in our nation’s prison system. Given the absurd cost of housing such prisoners in the system, Booker’s program is something that would actually … wait for it… SAVE MONEY! No wonder this guy’s polling at just 2% among the Democrat Party’s demented voter base. He hasn’t a prayer.

Amy Klobuchar – The most abusive candidate in the race rolled out a list of dozens of actions she would take during her first 100 days in office, many of which would cost our nation hundreds of billions of dollars. Each. Among the most costly is the very first one on the list, which is to get our country back into the fraudulent Paris Climate Accords, which is nothing but a scheme to redistribute American wealth to all other countries on the face of the earth. That one alone will be worth 3 shots of tequila when she brags about it during the debate.

Kirsten Gillibrand – It appears the most inexplicable candidate nominally in the race for some reason has completely given up, since the only new proposal I could find her talking about over the last few days came when she told the New York Times that her favorite comfort food is…whiskey.

Now, that’s a campaign I could get behind!

Stock up on the Patron and Jose Cuervo, folks, it’s gonna be a long and expensive couple of nights.

That is all.

The Biden Agonistes are Just Beginning

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

Creepy Uncle Joe steps in it again. – Joe Biden’s status as the Unfrozen Caveman Senator in the Democrat presidential race took another ugly turn this week when, in a Tuesday fundraising speech in New York, Biden praised former segregationist Democrat senators he served with waaaaayyyyyy back in the ’70s like Herman Talmage and James Eastland. This naturally set off a round of shameless virtue-signaling from his white opponents and fits of moral outrage from his black opponents – Cory Booker and Kamala Harris – who have made a career of trading on identity politics.

So, what did the nation’s Creepy Uncle say that was so offensive? Here’s how the fake reporters at the AP characterize it in their piece this morning:

The controversy began at a New York fundraiser Tuesday when Biden pointed to long-dead segregationist senators James Eastland of Mississippi and Herman Talmadge of Georgia to argue that Washington functioned more smoothly a generation ago than under today’s “broken” hyperpartisanship.

“We didn’t agree on much of anything,” Biden said of the two men, who were prominent senators when Biden was elected in 1972. Biden described Talmadge as “one of the meanest guys I ever knew” and said Eastland called him “son,” though not “boy,” a reference to the racist way many whites addressed black men at the time.

Booker, Harris and all their white companions desperate to grab a share of the “black vote”, as the Democrats love to call it, rushed to condemn Biden for praising segregationists for being “civil.” But of course, the trouble with that criticism is that that part of what Biden said was actually true – the U.S. Senate of the ’70s did exhibit a remarkable level of bipartisanship and civility in addressing issues, especially when compared with the hyperpartisan crap show we see in the “world’s greatest deliberative body” today.

But if Biden’s virtue-signaling, moral outrage-expressing opponents had a lick of sense and honesty – which we know they don’t since they’re all Democrats – they’d attack him for the blatant, outright lie that truly stands out in those two AP paragraphs, which is his statement that “We didn’t agree on much of anything.”

My goodness. That took some nerve.

What was the litmus test on de-segregation when Biden took office in the senate back in 1973? Forced busing. Along with all the old Democrat segregationists in the senate at that time, like Talmadge, Eastland, Howell Heflin, Ernest Hollings, Sam Ervin and Robert Byrd, who was one of the loudest, most aggressive opponents of forced busing? If you said Joe Biden, you would be correct.

See, schools in the northeast during those years were every bit as segregated as those in the southern states. Indeed, Biden made his fierce opposition to forced busing a centerpiece of his initial campaign for the senate. It is fair to credit that position on that key issue largely for his election to the senate in the first place.

Then there was Biden’s ardent opposition to that other litmus test for helping the nation’s African American population at that time, racial quotas in hiring and school admissions, which proponents like to call “Affirmative Action.” Like his southern senate colleagues, Good ol’ Joe was dead set against those as well.

Don’t believe me? Here is what he told a Delaware reporter in 1975:

I do not buy the concept, popular in the ‘60s, which said, ‘We have suppressed the black man for 300 years and the white man is now far ahead in the race for everything our society offers. In order to even the score, we must now give the black man a head start, or even hold the white man back, to even the race.’ I don’t buy that. I don’t feel responsible for the sins of my father and grandfather. I feel responsible for what the situation is today, for the sins of my own generation. And I’ll be damned if I feel responsible to pay for what happened 300 years ago.”

Interesting quotes, huh? Especially interesting in light of yesterday’s shameful Democrat-staged hearing in the House on reparations.

Here’s the truth about Joe Biden: He agreed with the ’70s-era southern Democrat segregationists about pretty much everything, and wasn’t real shy about saying so at the time. Of course, everyone’s political views change over time, and Biden is no doubt no exception.

But this long record of publicly spouting off and all those thousands of votes he took over 36 years in the Senate are, as I keep trying tell everyone, a very big and real problem for Biden, and a big reason why he ultimately will not be the party’s nominee in 2020. It will be a long, slow death by 1,000 cuts. There are literally dozens more really bad days still to come for Biden, days when the media and his opponents will hit him with all the stupid stuff he said back in the ’70s, ’80s, ’90s and ’00s.

Even the ’10s, come to think of it, because saying stupid stuff has always been Joe Biden’s real stock in trade, and in that, he has definitely not evolved.

That is all.

Dems/NBC Structure Debate Lineups to Promote the Party’s New Dream Ticket

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

Well, the Democrat debate lineups are set for next week, and aren’t we all thrilled? Ok, no. But I’ll tell you who is thrilled to death, and that is Fauxcahontas, the fake Indian senator from Massachusetts who got her a seat at the kiddie table. This is how we know that she has now replaced Kamala Harris as the favored child of the Obama minions who are running the DNC into bankruptcy. We’ll explain, but first, take a look at how the “random drawing” for next week’s two debate nights turned out:

Image result for Democratic debate lineups

Image result for Democratic debate lineups

Anything look a little odd to you there? Well, it will if you understand how the Democrats and the fake news media – in this case, NBC and its affiliate channels – work together to structure their narratives and influence how this campaign is going to go.

The first thing to understand here is that the Democrat Party does nothing at random. Nothing is left to chance – everything is scripted, every word they utter, every public action they take is based on supporting the narrative, which in turn is based on polling and focus groups. So, ignore the myth that these lineups were determined by drawing names out of a hat. That’s utter nonsense.

Now that you understand that, take another look at the lineups and notice the most striking aspect of them: There is Princess Little Big Giveaway all by herself at the end of that first line, preceded by an amazing array of lightweights in the race. None of those other nine candidates is polling more than 2-3% support currently, and most of them come in at a flat zero in all but a handful of national polls. Who do you think that’s intended to benefit?

It’s been hilarious reading some of the “news” reports since the lineups were released, most of them claiming that Lieawatha somehow came out on the short end of the stick, based on the bad reasoning that golly, nobody will be watching that first debate because Biden and the Commie aren’t in it. This betrays a complete lack of understanding about what actually matters here, which is not how many people tune into the debate, but what the media narrative of it will be the next day.

The narrative for Night 1 is set up to be “Man, did Elizabeth Warren dominate that debate stage, or what?” It’s as predictable as Joe Biden groping a child at a public event. You know who really got screwed by that draw? Tulsi Gabbard, who needs people to be watching in order to notice that she’s the only person on that stage who will be saying what she actually thinks, rather than reciting talking points written for her by other people, as all the others will be doing. Trust me, that’s not an accident, either, given that the Obama people who run the DNC detest Rep. Gabbard.

Thus, Night 2 will be crammed with the rest of the “heavyweights” in the race, if you can call them that. Sleepy Creepy Joe, the Commie, Kamala Harris and Mayor Pete will all be forced to compete with each other for opportunities to stand out, along with six rank also-rans like Kirsten Gillibrand and Marianne Williamson. The almost inevitable result of this lineup will be the formation of a circular firing squad with the guns trained mainly at Uncle Joe.

Guess who is most likely to come out of that mess looking best? If you said Mayor Pete, you’d be right. Because Buttigieg has already proven he’s much smarter than the rest of these hacks, and is the most likely one to be sure to stay completely out of the slugfest.

So, the lineup coming out of Night 2 sets up a narrative that will be something like “Buttigieg remains above the fray as a brawl breaks out on the debate stage.” Just millions more dollars worth of free media for the party’s “rising star.” No mystery here.

The people who run the DNC understand that Biden’s a dinosaur who is completely out of touch with the party’s radicalized voter base, and that the Commie is, well, a Commie who would lead the party to unrecoverable electoral disaster. So these lineups have obviously been structured to promote what is quickly emerging as the party’s “dream ticket” – a marriage between a fake Indian and an Obama disciple who has never before run for any office above mayor of a mid-size town in Indiana.

As much as they try to hide what they’re doing, the Democrats are really extremely transparent when you understand how they coordinate their efforts with our fake news media.

That is all.

Fauxcahontas Makes Heap Big Surge in Presidential Race

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

We here at the Campaign Update have consistently noted that Democrat voters love being lied to, and they appear determined to prove us right. If you hadn’t already picked up on it, the biggest surge in the Democrat nominating race over the past couple of months has not come from Mayor Pete Buttigieg, who has settled into polling consistently in the 7-8% support range. While that’s fairly respectable, we might have expected a little better performance from a guy who has received tens of millions of dollars in free, fawning air time from our fake news media since March.

No, the biggest surge has come from exactly the source we should have all anticipated, the life-long human fraud who has gotten everything she has achieved in life by lying. This is a woman who doesn’t just lie about economics, not just about the law, not just about public policy; oh, no, that’s not nearly enough. Elizabeth Warren is a woman who has spent her entire adult life disgracefully lying about who she even is as a person, pretending to be of American Indian descent in order to move ahead in line for plum jobs, to obtain licenses to practice law, and even to get elected to the United States Senate.

Making things even more hilarious – and thus making her even more appealing to liar-obsessed Democrat voters – Warren had become so bought into her own line of BS that she even resorted to taking a DNA test to prove her life of lies last year. When the test came back with the finding that she might – maybe – have 1/1024th native American blood in her stream, she immediately paraded around on a public “victory” tour. Only the loud objections from several Indian Tribes put a stop to that nonsense.

But why would it surprise us that her initial reaction to having been publicly proven to be a heinous, life-long fraud would be to stage a celebration? After all, this is a woman who wants to be the Democrat presidential nominee, and while she’s a horribly dishonest individual, she isn’t stupid. She knows what appeals most to her party’s demented voter base, and that DNA test was proof she had the main qualification to win their support.

You have to think like these Democrats think, folks. I know it’s hard, but once you do, everything they do makes perfect sense.

Anyway, getting to the point here, we’ve had a spate of new polls of the Democrat race released in the past few days, and they show a clear Lieawatha surge, one that well outpaces the little boomlet Mayor Pete’s enjoyed. Quinnipiac, which showed Warren getting just 4% support in March, now has her at a very strong 15%, just 4 points behind the Commie. Economist/YouGov, meanwhile, has her at 16%, 4 points ahead of the old Bolshevik, and just 11 points behind Creepy Uncle Joe.

At the state level, a new Des Moines Register poll has her surging to 15% support in that state, in a virtual tie with the Commie and 9 points behind Biden. In Nevada, another key early caucus state, a new poll by Monmouth shows her firmly in second place at 19% support.

And a note about Warren consistently now getting at or above that 15% support level: That’s the level of votes a candidate must attain to win delegates in the party’s new proportional system for 2020. Thus, Lieawatha now joins Biden and the Commie as the only candidates consistently breaching that key threshold.

Little Mouth Always Running’s recent surge, along with her solid fundraising efforts, have now clearly established her as the strongest woman in the race. Kamala Harris, who all the “experts” believed was the odds-on favorite to be the main challenger to Biden back in January, continues to struggle and her polling numbers have settled into an essential tie with Mayor Pete. Although she on the surface seems like a female carbon political copy of Barack Hussein Obama his own self, she so far simply lacks Obama’s ability to connect with voters.

In other words, Kamala is just a lousy candidate. Who knows – maybe if she made up a back story about how her great grandmother always told her she was a space alien, that might be an obvious-enough lie to steal voters away from Fauxcahontas. Do lies about Aliens trump lies about Indians in demented Democrat thought? Hard to know until it’s been tried, Kamala.

In any event, the math on this race is becoming increasingly clear as the contestants lurch towards their first debates later this month. We have a top tier of contenders that consists of the Creepy Uncle every family wants to hide in the basement, a Commie trying to pretend he’s merely a socialist, a fake Indian, a modestly unsuccessful mayor of a mid-size city most Americans have never heard of, and a Senator who advanced her career by having a years-long affair with a power broker twice her age. The other 20 or so candidates need to devise better sets of lies if they want to move up the pecking order.

Way to go, Democrats!

That is all.

The State of the Democrat Race: Biden Seals His Fate

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

Hey, remember when Joe Biden’s rationale for running was that he would be the moderate who would appeal to independent voters? – Yeah, that’s all gone now.  I’ve told you all along that Joe Biden will not – cannot – be the 2020 nominee for the Democrat Party, and this was the week in which he sealed his own fate.

Honestly, it was inevitable. This man is a dinosaur trying to compete in a modern age with which he is totally unfamiliar. He’s like Phil Hartman’s genius “Un-Frozen Caveman Lawyer” SNL character, an ancient throwback to a time long past who is always confused and frightened by our modern ways and customs. More specifically, Biden is confused and frightened by the ways and customs of his Party’s modern-day voter base, pretty much all of which lies to the left of Fidel Castro and, where abortion is concerned, Margaret Sanger.

Not surprisingly at all, Biden got all caught up in abortion politics this week, and the outcome destroyed the entire rationale for his candidacy to begin with. Margaret Sanger, the founder of Planned Parenthood, wanted all abortions to be legal as a means of controlling America’s black population. Today’s Democrat Party voter base fully endorses Sanger’s beliefs – abortions kill a far higher percentage of African American babies than those of any other segment of U.S. society – but takes it a step farther, to allowing babies born alive after attempted abortions to be left on a table to die.

This is what Democrat politicians refer to as a woman’s right to “healthcare.”  You betcha.

Biden, a life-long practicing Catholic, has always supported the Hyde Amendment, a policy which prevents Americans of actual religious faith from having to pay for abortions through their tax dollars. That is, until this week, when the subject was raised. When Biden reasserted his Hyde support, the SJWs in the social media universe went berserk, and almost frightened the eldery man out of what little hair he has remaining.

Less than 24 hours later, Biden gave up, fully endorsing his party’s baby-killing at all costs ways.

Poof! No more reason for Creepy Uncle Joe to be in the race. If Biden’s going to be just another Commie, baby-killing hack, why, the rest of the field is filled to the gills with younger, more attractive, more female and more minority versions of that.

So, again, as I’ve said all along, Biden will not be the nominee. His polling lead will have evaporated by October – really, by September at this rate – and he will leave the race shortly after he fails to win Iowa, New Hampshire or South Carolina. Which means March. He is this cycle’s Jeb!, but he just hasn’t realized it yet.

Elsewhere in the race, things remained pretty static. Bernie the Commie remains ensconced in second place in every poll, though his numbers keep slowly declining as the numbers for Fauxcahontas keep creeping up. Every Democrat nominating race is always won by the best liar, and little Lieawatha was just born to lie. So she is now firmly in third place with a slow-moving bullet.

Kamala Harris is going nowhere fast, and seems to have no idea of how to change that dynamic. She is just a very poor candidate, which is not surprising given the unseemly manner in which she advanced herself to the Senate in the first place. Mayor Pete has also stagnated after having received tens of millions in free media from our fake news outlets, and may have reached the peak of his popularity already. Irish Bob O’Rourke, fresh off of his utterly-failed effort to reboot his campaign, is simply dead in the water.

In fact, the entire field has stagnated at this point, as the fake news media flails about trying to decide which of them will be promoted next, and I suspect that will remain the state of play until the debates begin in a few weeks.

Here is a prediction I will make when that season comes around: The only actually interesting candidate in the race, Tulsi Gabbard, will really stand out on the debate stage. She will then likely become the media’s next “rising star” obsession.

What do I mean by “interesting candidate”? I mean that Gabbard, like Donald Trump in 2016, will stand out on a debate stage because she will be the only person on the stage saying what she truly believes, rather than just reciting a bunch of talking points scripted for her by other people. That was the real reason why Trump ended up becoming the GOP nominee, because most ordinary Americans are sick to death of watching politicians recite talking points. Like Trump, Gabbard tends to directly answer the questions posed to her, and does it in plain language most people can understand.

So, expect her to really stand out among the clutter of political hackery that will surround her on that debate stage. As a woman and minority, Gabbard also has some of the identity politics attributes valued by shallow Democrat voters. She is not, however, a particularly good liar, so while she will likely get a boost out of the debates, she cannot become the eventual nominee.

I had previously thought that Andrew Yang might do similarly well in the debates, but he has completely succumbed to the bad advice from professional communications “experts.” So he sounds no different than Kirsten Gillibrand or Kamala Harris these days. Not a recipe for winning if you are, like Yang, an insurgent candidate looking to stand out in a crowd.

The only other candidate I’d expect to perhaps get a boost out of the early debates would be Texas’s Julian Castro, the only actual Hispanic candidate in the race. Castro is a very smart guy and a very polished speaker. But again, not an especially convincing liar, which will really harm him with Democrat voters.

So right now we are just kind of stuck in a holding pattern until the debates get started. That’s when things will really start to get interesting.

Here are my initial odds on the race, which I plan to update weekly:

Anyone Else – Even

Hillary Clinton – 5 to 1

Joe Biden – 100 to 1

Bernie the Commie – 20 to 1

Elizabeth Warren – 6 to 1

Kamala Harris – 12 to 1

Mayor Pete – 50 to 1

Irish Bob – 1,000 to 1

Spartacus – 20 to 1

Tulsi Gabbard – 50 to 1

Julian Castro – 50 to 1

Kirsten Gillibrand – 6 million to 1

Amy Klobuchar – 1,000 to 1

Bill DeBlasio – Infinity to 1

The rest of the declared field – 100 to 1

That is all.

Beto O’Rourke Issues the Most Authentic Democrat Apology Ever

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

Apology accepted, you giant a**hole! – Desperate times call for desperate measures, as they say, and no Democrat candidates are more desperate these days than Eric “Otter” Swalwell and Irish Bob “Beto” O’Rourke. This week, both campaigns decided it would be best for their failing candidates to apologize for being exactly who they are.

So, Swalwell went out on Monday and, in on of the most stilted, palpably insincere moments of 2019, made a video in which he apologized to a woman for being a white man, saying “I may be another white guy, but I know there are gaps in my knowledge or in my experience and I know when to pass the mic.”

Ummmm, no, dude, the very existence of this video clearly demonstrates you haven’t the slightest clue about when to do that.

When questioned by Fox News’s Martha MaCallum about Swalwell’s gesture, Trey Gowdy nailed it, saying “Well, Eric’s clearly riding a wave. I think he’s all the way up to zero in the polling.”  Ooof.

Not to be outdone by one of the shrinking handful of contenders he still leads in the polling, Irish Bob O’Rourke issued a video of his own on Tuesday. In this one, he apologizes to his 2018 senate campaign staff for being “a giant asshole.” Which, of course, is what everyone was thinking about him but afraid to say in polite company. But we aren’t in polite company here at Today’s Campaign Update, so we just plow right ahead and say it.

Hey, this is a really promising trend we have going on here for the Democrats. Maybe the rest of the field will take this opportunity issue some heartfelt apologies of their own for their past misdeeds that we are all totally aware of.  Wouldn’t that be fun?

Here are some examples of the apology opportunities that lie out there in Democrat land:

  • Joe Biden could apologize for being a serial woman-and-child groper;
  • Kamala Harris could apologize for being a floozy who slept her way to the Senate;
  • Fauxcahontas could apologize for being, well, Fauxcahontas;
  • The Commie could apologize for being an America-hating Marxist;
  • Pete Buttigieg could apologize for being just so darn cute;
  • Amy Klobuchar could apologize for being a heinously-abusive boss;
  • Cory Booker could apologize to Spartacus;
  • Kirstin Gillibrand could apologize for ever announcing her candidacy in the first place;
  • John Hickenlooper could apologize for having been a pretty good governor, thus ending any hope that he might actually succeed in Democrat presidential politics;
  • Jay Inslee, a horrible governor, could apologize in advance to all those future dead Washingtonians whose bodies will be mixed with leaves and manure to become compost;
  • Bill DeBlasio could apologize for being the worst mayor in a city whose history is filled with an endless series of awful mayors, interrupted only by 8 years of Rudy Giuliani;
  • Tulsi Gabbard could apologize to the other contenders for being the only actually interesting candidate in the entire field;
  • Marianne Williamson could apologize for being someone… I don’t even know who she is;
  • Seth Moulton could apologize to Fox News viewers for denying their ability to cringe and laugh out loud at every opinion uttered on-air by Marie Harf;
  • Julian Castro could apologize for being too authentically Hispanic to ever hope to attract the votes of Democrat voters who just love to be deceived.

This could go on almost endlessly, given the collection of miscreants, hacks and life-long frauds that are leading the race right now.

But of course, it won’t. Being a leftist asshole means never really having say you’re sorry, unless you think there’s some political advantage to doing it. Pretty sure that was in a movie once.

That is all.
