Blexit, Bolsonaro, Merkel: Globalism is Dying

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Your Democrat Mob in action! –  There is no end to the depravity of the Democrat Mob, no violation of societal norms to which they will not stoop.  Don’t believe me?  Yesterday, a group of Democrat mobsters disrupted a Marsha Blackburn rally in Tennessee as the audience was observing a moment of silence for the victims of the Tree of Life massacre in Pittsburgh.  I swear I don’t make this stuff up.  Who could?

They do that about everything else, so why should oil and gas be any different? – Hotair.com has a piece up this morning titled “New York Times Pushing Fake News About the Oil and Gas Industry.”  It’s about a hit piece the Times and reporter Eric Lipton put out over the weekend, alleging that the Trump Administration is just bulldozing the entire landscape of the state of Wyoming with its ramped-up federal lands leasing program.

The problem is this:  The story’s completely false, and it took the good folks over at EnergyInDepth.org about 15 minutes to debunk it.  But hey, EID has been debunking New York Times fake stories on the oil and gas industry for almost a full decade now – it’s a tough job, but somebody has to do it.

Hey, Blexit’s a thing now. – Conservative African American activist Candace Owens is leading an effort to convince more and more Black voters to abandon the Democrat Mob, and she has decided to call the movement “Blexit,” which of course is short for “Black Exit.”  Pretty clever.

As if the very existence of Black conservatives weren’t enough to infuriate the Democrat Mob, it will be even more enraged to discover that the t-shirts and other gear being used by Owens and others in the effort was designed by none other than ex-Democrat Mob hero and current Democrat Mob villain Kanye West!  Really, this is just too awesome for words:

“Blexit is a renaissance and I am blessed to say that this logo, these colors, were created by my dear friend and fellow superhero Kanye West,” said Owens, 29.

She gushed that West “has taken one of the boldest steps in America to open a conversation we have needed to have.”

Owens and West are just two of a rapidly-growing number of African Americans who realize that the last 70 years of tying their political fortunes to the brutish hucksters in the Democrat Party has left broad swaths of America’s black community mired in torn families, torn homes and multi-generational poverty with little hope of things ever improving. The Democrat Mob is the very symbol of big federal government, and no segment of our society has been more consistently and often intentionally failed by the federal government than the Black community.

Just as Brexit and Donald Trump pose an existential threat to the globalists, so does Blexit pose an existential threat to the Democrat Mob.  The Mob has been able to remain a force in national politics based largely on its ability to attract 90-95% of the Black vote in every election cycle.  Were that percentage to fall to 75%, the Democrat Party would essentially die.

Given that, we should expect the Democrat Mob’s assaults on Owens, West and other leaders of this new Blexit movement, which have already been vile and disgusting, to become even more severe and frequent. Because that’s what the Democrat Mob does to anyone who tries to leave the “Family.”

Speaking of Globalists threatened by President Donald Trump (I never tire of typing those three glorious words)… – Breaking overnight is the news that despicable Angela Merkel, who has done everything she can to destroy the native German culture with open borders policies during her 13 years as Chancellor there, announced she will step down as Chairman of her political party, the Christian Democrat Union (CDU), but will remain in the Chancellor’s post for now.

However, by stepping down as Chairman, Merkel is setting off a competition within the CDU among candidates who will ultimately attempt to succeed her in the Chancellor’s job.  Like the Democrat Mob in the U.S., the CDU has seen a steady erosion of its support in recent years, and Merkel was only able to remain in the Chancellor’s job following the most recent elections by forming a reluctant coalition with German’s Social Democrat Party.

Meanwhile, down in Brazil, the voters elevated conservative populist candidate Jair Bolsonaro to the nation’s presidency.  Bolsonaro, who is already being vilified in the fake news media as a far-right extremist (sound familiar?), won 56% of the vote, easily defeating his leftist, globalist opponent.  From the Reuters report:

“We cannot continue flirting with communism … We are going to change the destiny of Brazil,” Bolsonaro said in an acceptance address in which he vowed to carry out his campaign promises to stamp out corruption after years of leftist rule.

Again, sound famliar?

Globalism, which has never been anything more than a proxy for socialism and the destruction of human freedom, is a dying ideology all over the world.  Donald Trump understands that, which is why he is the leader of the free world.  The Democrat Mob doesn’t understand it and never will, which is why they will continue to die a slow and agonizing political death.

It’s morning in America.  Vote Republican.

That is all.

The Week in Review: Trump Spoke the Truth, the Media Went Nuts

The Campaign Update Week in Review

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

The most outstanding feature of this week was the media going nuts.  What was so interesting about it to me was that they went nuts every time President Trump told the truth

For example, at the formal swearing-in of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh, the President told the truth about the fact that he had been subjected to a shameful smearing organized by the Democrats.  An absolute, unarguable fact.  The media went nuts.

At his rally in Ohio Friday night, Trump told the truth about the unarguable fact that Robert E. Lee was a great general.  Simply a fact of history.  The media went nuts.

Upon the release of Pastor Andrew Brunson from a Turkish prison, the President tweeted this absolute true statement:

“There was NO DEAL made with Turkey for the release and return of Pastor Andrew Brunson. I don’t make deals for hostages. There was, however, great appreciation on behalf of the United States, which will lead to good, perhaps great, relations between the United States & Turkey!”

Not surprisingly, the media went nuts.

Of course, the reality here is the media and their Democrat masters just can’t deal with reality.  Trump keeps winning, they keep losing, and they go nuts because they don’t know what else to do at this point.  Combine all that losing with the fact this was the week that their precious “blue wave” fantasy began to show signs of slipping away, and it’s amazing they all haven’t been committed to an asylum by now.

But hey, it’s just a matter of time.  Let’s go to the Week in Review:

 

It was the week Cocaine Mitch McConnell out-maneuvered Cryin’ Chuckie Schumer yet again, securing a deal in which the Senate confirmed en mass no less than 15 new federal judges to the bench in exchange for calling the Senate into recess so that desperate Democrats could go home to campaign.

It was the week Hurricane Michael devastated the Florida panhandle, and Democrat Senator Bill Nelson turned the tragedy into a fundraising opportunity.

It was the week that Al Gore told us all we only have 10 more years to save the planet, a talking point he has used every year for the last 30 years, and will continue to use every year for the rest of his life.

It was the week that the Creepy Porn Lawyer and Irish Bob O’Rourke formed a fundraising partnership, because apparently Irish Bob just can’t run a senate campaign with only $60 million on hand.

It was the week that an American president secured the release of a hostage from Turkey without trading a bunch of terrorist prisoners held here in the U.S. and without shipping planeloads of cash to a hostile government.  Just one more element of the un-American legacy of Barack Hussein Obama gone.

It was the week that Taylor Swift became a leftist hero by endorsing Tennessee Democrat senate candidate Phil Bredesen, and Bredesen’s campaign immediately fell completely apart.

It was the week that Kanye West became a leftist enemy by breaking bread with President Donald Trump, and every talking head on CNN and MSNBC went into full panic mode.  The anti-Kanye rhetoric coming out of those two fake news outlets sounded like something out of a 1940s Klan rally.

It was the week that Judge Brett Kavanaugh became Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh and there wasn’t a damn thing any Democrat on earth could do about it.

It was the week that the Democrats and the fake news media dropped Christine Ford like a hot potato to literally no one’s surprise.

It was the week that the Pantsuit Princess and Eric Holder openly declared themselves in favor of escalating violence from the American left.

It was the week that Nikki Haley announced she would be leaving her UN post at the end of the year, and every Trump supporter breathed a huge sigh of relief when he made it clear that Bushite globalist Dina Powell would not be her successor.

It was the week we found out that the Arizona Democrat senate candidate thinks her state is “the meth lab of America.”

Finally, It was the week that all the pollsters who have spent the last 9 months doing their best to convince us all a “blue wave” began to panic and warn their favored Democrats that hey, uh, well, ummmm…maybe that’s not really gonna happen after all.

Man, nobody could’ve seen that one coming.  Oh, wait…

That is all.

Everybody Stop Worrying About Ted Cruz

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Deep [racist] Thoughts by Chris Cuomo. – Here is real, actual stuff CNN’s fake host Chris Cuomo had to say about Kanye West’s visit to the Oval Office, courtesy of RealClearPolitics:

Cuomo said didn’t care about what West said, he wanted to know what racist thoughts were going on in the president’s head.

“My curiosity wasn’t about what came out of Kanye’s mouth. My wonder went to what is going on in Trump’s head,” Cuomo said.

“Let’s take a look at him. Here is my educated guess, OK? Other than a warm serotonin flush of happy hormone, imaginary headlines, blacks loves Trump, he’s blacker than Obama,” Cuomo, imagining racist scenarios that he thinks Trump would think up, said.

Yes, friends, this is what passes for political and social commentary from the fake hosts on the world’s fakest fakety-fake #fakenews channel these days.  Just one more reason why, if you watch CNN, you are part of the problem.

Man, nobody could’ve seen this one coming.  Oh, wait… – You might want to be sitting down when you read this, but ABC executives are now thinking that maybe, just maybe, they acted a tad to rashly in firing Roseanne Barr and trying to bring the “Roseanne” series back as “The Conners” without its main star.  I know, right?  Who could’ve thought?

According to a report at the Daily Mail, one ABC insider was quoted as saying “We didn’t think it through properly. What Roseanne did was wrong but we shouldn’t have rushed to fire her. It was almost a knee-jerk reaction by Ben [Sherwood] and Channing [Dungey] who should have launched an investigation. This would have given them more time to listen to the public, advertisers and cast members to determine the best decision.”

Oh, but the navel-gazing over at ABC gets even better.

“When we greenlit The Conners we thought that the public would tune in to see the family return but what we’ve discovered is that people want Roseanne – they don’t want the family by themselves.”  Somehow, you get the feeling that it isn’t exactly MENSA central over at the ABC headquarters these days.

Y’all need to quit worrying about Ted Cruz, ok? – All you folks out in states that are not named “Texas” need to quit sending me tweets, texts and emails expressing concern about Ted Cruz and his re-election race, ok?  Ted’s going to be just fine, because most Texans aren’t stupid.

Ted Cruz is going to win his race against Irish Bob O’Rourke by somewhere between 10-15% of the vote.  That’s how this race was always going to turn out, because despite what some “experts” in the Texas news media have been telling you, there is no “blue wave” materializing in our state, no real overriding desire for significant change among Texas voters.  There just isn’t.

Every election cycle has its own macro-tide of inertia, an overriding momentum within the population at large, either for change or for preservation of the status quo. All the “experts” in the media and the political consultant class tend to focus on little micro factors like this week’s hysteria about all the money O’Rourke raised in the 3rd quarter from thousands of suckers in California and New York, or what the latest poll from Quinnipiac/Emerson/Gallup/Rasmussen/CNN/ABC/NBC, etc. says.  In focusing on the micro-events, these “experts” almost all fail to accurately assess the inertia among the public at large.

This is why the polls and political “expert” class at large was so hilariously, embarrassingly wrong about the 2016 elections, not just in forecasting the presidential race but also the congressional elections.  Almost all of them, liberal and conservative alike, placed faith in the myriad polls without noting that there was a very heavy overriding mood among the public for change.  Simply put, 2016 was always going to be a “change” election, and Donald Trump was the only candidate on the ballot offering real, radical change.

This year, there is no such mood among the public, despite the best efforts of our fake news media to whip such a mood up with its 24/7 anti-Trump hysteria.  The economy is booming, people have more money in the bank thanks to the Trump tax cuts, the nation is relatively at peace in the world, and the regulatory boot of the federal government becomes lighter on a daily basis.  Nowhere in the nation is this more true than in Texas, where the oil and gas industry has helped to create one of the strongest state economies in the land.

Here is what has happened in the Cruz/Irish Bob race to this point:  Irish Bob started campaigning in earnest in January, and the Texas news media cranked up its fawning reporting on him at that time.  The national news media jumped into the Cult of Beto party in the spring, and Irish Bob had the playing field pretty much to himself right up until September, when Cruz finally began to campaign.  By that time, the various polls of the race were showing Cruz holding just a 3 to 5 point lead.

At that time, I told readers that, as Cruz cranks his campaign up and gets his ads up on television, and the voters of Texas begin to focus on who Irish Bob really is, those polls will begin to loosen up.  Guess what?  Polls taken over the past week now have Cruz leading by 8 and 9 points.  The other key dynamic in the polls in this race is that Irish Bob’s number never gets above 44-45.  That’s his ceiling, and it is one that is most likely overstated.

Think about it:  These same polls now show Governor Greg Abbott holding massive leads of 20 to 25 points over his hapless Democrat opponent, Lupe Valdez, who is completely out of her depth.  No one is arguing that this race is going to be anything but a hyper-blowout, yet the Texas media wants you to believe that hundreds of thousands of voters are going to go into the voting booth, cast a vote for the GOP gubernatorial candidate, but then switch parties and vote for the Democrat in the senate race.

That isn’t going to happen to any great extent – that’s not how voters in Texas or anywhere else behave anymore.  So what’s going to end up happening is that, in this cycle in which the maco-inertia in the electorate is for preserving the status quo, the voters of Texas are going to re-elect Ted Cruz by a margin of 10-15% of the vote, which is what I’ve been telling you was going to happen since January, when Irish Bob cranked up his campaign and started raising money from suckers in other states.

If you want to worry about senate races, focus on Arizona and Nevada and Missouri and Indiana, where the races really are close.  But leave us Texans alone, because Ted’s got this.

That is all.

That Week When Kanye West and Taylor Swift Traded Roles in the Democrat Narrative

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Giving advice like this is why she had to take a job at a third-rate cable outlet. – MSNBC’s pet fake conservative host Nicolle Wallace told Chris Matthews on “Hardball” yesterday that she advised Jeb Bush to physically attack Donald Trump after their first debate.: “I told Jeb Bush after that debate that I thought he should have punched [Trump] in the face.”  The demented Wallace said that doing so would have made Jeb! a hero.  All of which explains why Nicolle Wallace can’t get a job as a political advisor anymore.

Mmmmmm…smells like #Winning… – 

Senate confirms 15 Trump judges after GOP leaders, Democrats strike deal

“Everybody mount up!  We got us a runaway!”:  It is truly sad and astonishing how viciously the Democrats and their media toadies invariably go after any African American who strays from their leftist plantation.  Astonishing and disgusting and yes, sad.  It happens every time.

From Clarence Thomas to J.C. Watts to Herman Cain to Ben Carson to Tim Scott to Candace Owens, with many others in between, the playbook is always the same.  They’ve even done it to the great Jim Brown, one of the pioneers of the civil rights movement and a symbol of “Black Power” for half a century, for simply saying he doesn’t think kneeling in protest of the national anthem and American flag is appropriate.

Now comes Kanye West, one of the most successful Black music artists and businessmen of this or any generation, a man who just 13 years ago was hailed as a hero by these very same people when, on national television, he said “George Bush hates black people.”  Kanye was a hero again when he stole the mic from a teenage Taylor Swift at the MTV Video Music Awards show so he could take off on a rant about how Beyonce’ should have won the award for best video instead.

Kanye’s always been a little off-the-wall and more than a little “out there”, prone to going off on somewhat bizarre and disjointed tirades in public settings and speaking his mind far more bluntly than polite society thought was, well, appropriate, don’t you know. But as long as Kanye was sticking with the approved Democrat/media narrative that George W. Bush was a racist or Tay-Tay was just a privileged white girl stealing an award from a more deserving Black woman, Kanye was, like, totally awesome.  He wasn’t cray-cray, he was just Kanye bein’ Kanye.

But yesterday, Kanye goes to the White House wearing a red MAGA cap, hugs President Donald Trump and goes off on a terrific rant about how Trump’s pro-America, anti-Obama policies are in fact incredibly empowering for African Americans, and suddenly you see the leftist keepers of the Democrat talking points on MSNBC and CNN calling him “crazy,” a “house-negro”, an “embarrassment”, an “uncle Tom”, and even worse.  One fake “conservative” host on MSNBC accused him of having “mental problems” and the President of being “willing to exploit them.”  Interestingly, most of these things were said by white people, who, if they said exactly the same things about any Democrat black person would immediately be accused of being racists.

This week’s radical shifting of celebrity roles in our fake news media must have non-ideological African Americans suffering from whiplash.  Just a few weeks ago, the Democrats/media Axis of Propaganda’s narrative told them that Tay-Tay was the privileged little white girl who is still holding Beyonce’s trophy hostage, and Kanye was a symbol of Black empowerment.  Today, they’re supposed to now worship Tay-Tay because she endorsed a certain Democrat loser in Tennessee, and they’re supposed to hate Kanye for hugging a President.

Just a guess, but it seems likely that the millions of African Americans who now have jobs after collecting unemployment for 8 years under Barack Obama probably don’t much care what a bunch of mainly-white talking heads at MSNBC and CNN are saying about Kanye West.

And speaking of Tay-Tay… – Man, has it been a bad week for Taylor Swift, or what?  Sunday night, the pop singer finally broke her political silence, endorsing Democrat Phil Bredesen in his race for the U.S. Senate against Republican Marsha Blackburn.

At the time Tay-Tay jumped off the political cliff, the most recent polls indicated this was a very tight race.  But when the New York Times decided to do a live poll of the race two days later, it showed Blackburn with a huge 18 point lead.  Two additional polls issued this week also show Blackburn’s lead in the mid-teens.

Swift’s jump into politics was conveniently timed to coincide with her hosting the American Music Awards program Tuesday night, and organizers of the event were hopeful that the star could bring in yuuuuuge ratings.  Nope.  Tay-Tay’s gig was in fact the lowest-rated AMA show in history.

Combine that with the certainty that her ill-advised leap into leftist politics will no doubt result in a steep drop in her future music sales, and this has been the week from hell for poor Tay-Tay.  But hey, she has S.E. Cupp, Nicolle Wallace and the rest of the depraved nitwits who serve their Democrat masters on MSNBC on her side, so she’s got that going for her.

It isn’t much.

That is all.

Trump Supporters to Kanye: Welcome to the Party, Pal.

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

If this surprises you, you haven’t been paying attention. – The New York Post is reporting that female staffers felt pressured, even forced to sign that letter of support for #MeToo target Tom Brokaw that NBC rolled out last week.  According to one:

“We felt forced to sign the letter supporting Brokaw. We had no choice, particularly the lower level staffers. The letter was being handed around the office and the unspoken threat was that if your name was not on it, there would be some repercussion down the road. Execs are watching to see who signed and who didn’t. This was all about coming out in force to protect NBC’s golden boy; the network’s reputation is tied to Brokaw . . . If more women come forward, that’s a big problem.”

Why yes, yet it is a big problem, and rumors abound that more women are going to come forward soon to accuse Brokaw of sexual harassment.  And by the way, coercing female employees to sign a letter of support for a man accused of sexual harassment is itself a textbook case of sexual harassment.  NBC, it seems, just can’t help itself.

Tired of all this Winning yet? Part I – Kanye West is finding out who his real friends are right now, and finding that he doesn’t have nearly as many as he probably thought he did.  Millions who have supported Donald Trump since 2016 are looking on and thinking, “Welcome to the party, pal.”

A new Reuters poll shows that, after just one week of a single African American celebrity breaking free of the Democrat/leftist/political correctness plantation, approval of President Donald Trump among black males had doubled, from 11 percent to 22 percent.  That may not seem like a particularly big number, but every Democrat politician knows that if 22 percent of black males suddenly started voting for Republicans, the Democrat Party could not survive as a viable entity anywhere outside of California and a few states in the northeast.

So, if you’ve been wondering why West has been so viciously attacked by all of his leftwing colleagues and lectured by black politicians like Mad Maxine Waters – who condescendingly scolded the artist for “speaking out of turn” and needing help in properly forming his thoughts – wonder no more.  The Democrat Party has had a 90+ percent, virtual monopoly on the black vote for over half a century now, and in that period of time, the black family has essentially disintegrated, black poverty levels have gone up, not down, and black unemployment skyrocketed, all as a direct result of Democrat policies.

Today, after just 16 months of the Trump Administration, black unemployment sits at its lowest level since the statistic began to be kept half a century ago.   West sees this reality, and is speaking out about it, and the Democrat response is highly predictable.  Democrats have always responded aggressively and viciously whenever they see one of their cherished voter blocs being threatened.

Now comes news that Christina Aguilera is collaborating with West on a new recording, so she’d probably do well to wear her own flack jacket for the foreseeable future, because the leftist bomb-throwers will be targeting her next.  So long as Kanye is making pro-Trump noises, anyone who chooses to do business with or otherwise associate with him will become a target for leftist Democrat character assassination.  That’s just how these people work.

Tired of all this Winning yet?  Part II. – Reports began circulating Wednesday afternoon that the Crazy Little Fat Guy in North Korea has, in advance of his meeting with President Trump in the coming weeks, agreed to release three American “detainees”, i.e., prisoners.  If true – and it appears to be – this is a breathtaking surrender of negotiating leverage, and should serve to diminish any remaining concerns about North Korea’s real intentions in its stated desire for the denuclearization of the Korean peninsula.

The deal President Trump wants to see here is the supervised dismantling and removal of North Korea’s nuclear testing and intercontinental missile testing facilities in exchange for lifting of many U.S. and U.N. sanctions and a joint stand-down of the military standoff that has existed at the border between North and South Korea for 64 long and painful years.  The presence of these prisoners is one of the few remaining points of leverage that Kim Jong Un had available to him.    Releasing them is a clear signal that the decks are being cleared in advance so that the meeting between Trump and Kim can become more of a signing ceremony than a step in a long negotiating process.

Naturally, not one of the major networks found this stunning concession on the part of Kim worthy of mention on their nightly newscasts.  What we are seeing taking place on the Korean peninsula over the last few months has been nothing short of amazing, and it’s a damn shame that our national fake news media is so consumed with hatred of Donald Trump that it is simply not capable of appreciating it or properly reporting on it.

Just another day in welcome to the party, pal America.

That is all.

The Walls Keep Closing in Around the Deep State Cabal

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Ok, lessee here, busy day yesterday….

Law enforcement officials caught the naked Waffle House shooter, and fortunately he had his pants on when they took him into custody.  What a strange, odd story that one is.

Another royal baby was born in London, and once again I can only marvel at how many Americans actually give a damn.  I don’t.

Poppy Bush is in the ICU at Houston Methodist hospital with a blood infection, just a few days after his wife Barbara was laid to rest.  One can only imagine the stress the 93 year-old former president has been through in the last week.  Here’s wishing him a full recovery – having been a heart patient at Houston Methodist myself, I know he literally could not be in better hands.

Kanye West is getting himself in all sorts of trouble with the Social Justice Warrior left for defending a black conservative woman’s – Candace Owens – right to speak her mind, and for saying he doesn’t hate President Donald Trump.  Hate is the life’s blood of the American left these days, so this is no surprise at all.

The makers of Yeti Coolers have gotten themselves in a world of trouble with their main consumer group – outdoorsmen – by cancelling some discount programs they had with the NRA.  By the time a Yeti spokesperson very predictably tried to calm the situation late on Monday by calling it all a “misunderstanding,” NRA fans had already mounted a protest called the Blow Up a Yeti Challenge, in which owners of Yeti coolers video themselves blowing the things up and posting the video on social media.

Meanwhile, I happened to be on the road yesterday, and stopped in at my favorite Buc-ee’s convenience store for some refreshment and a bathroom break.  While there, I took the shot below of the obvious solution to this problem:

RTIC coolers – half the price, every bit the performance as a Yeti.  And no, I don’t own stock in the company, though I probably should.

Kentucky Senator Rand Paul decided to do the right thing and vote to confirm Secretary of State nominee Mike Pompeo, sending Pompeo’s nomination to the floor of the Senate with a positive recommendation from the Senate Foreign Relations Committee.  Now all the red state Democrats facing tough re-election fights – are you listening, Joe Manchin? – get to decide whether they want to have a chance to win their races, or they want to continue acting as Chuck Schumer’s loyal toadies.  This Democrat tactic of opposing every nomination for the sake of opposing it is becoming extremely tiresome with independent voters.

The walls keep closing in on the Deep State Cabal. – A little-noticed passage in the report on Andrew McCabe by DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz is starting to make real news, at least in the 2% of the national news media that doesn’t function solely as press agents for the Democrat Party.  As reported in the Washington Times, this passage reveals the fact that McCabe, several weeks prior to Election Day 2016, was surprised to get an irate phone call from a “high level offical” in the Justice Department, demanding to know why the FBI was still pursuing its then-active investigation into the Clinton Crime Family Fake Foundation.

As described in the report, a call such as this, from a high DOJ official attempting to interfere in an active FBI investigation is highly unusual, and would have set off alarm bells had it taken place in a non- corrupted DOJ, which of course we did not have during the Obama years.  McCabe told investigators that his impression from the call was that DOJ was improperly trying to pressure the FBI on behalf of the Clinton Campaign.

What is so interesting about this particular incident is not that it took place, since this kind of corrupt behavior at the Obama DOJ was just par for the course, but that the call was made by a person the report identifies as the “principal associate deputy attorney general.”  It doesn’t take much grunt work to find out that the person with that particular job title at that point in time was one Matthew Axelrod, which is not in and of itself especially notable.

What is especially notable, however, is that the position of “principal associate deputy attorney general” reports to the “deputy attorney general” who, at that point in time was a person with the very recognizable name of… wait for it… Sally Yates!  Yes, friends, the same Sally Yates who served as acting attorney general for the first 10 days of the Trump Administration, the same Sally Yates whose name keeps popping up over and over and over again as a key participant in the deep state conspiracy to bring down the Trump presidency, the same Sally Yates who was unceremoniously fired by President Trump when she refused to enforce his initial travel ban.

That Sally Yates.  Trust me, we’ll be hearing a lot more about Ms. Yates in the coming weeks, as the plot to fix an election and then to kill a presidency continues to unravel, thread by despicable thread.

Connecting the dots on this deep state conspiracy is so damn fascinating.   Robert Ludlum couldn’t have made this stuff up.

Just another day in the deep state cabal keeps unraveling America.

That is all.
