The Week in Review: Democrats Gone Wild!

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

[Editor’s Note: The Campaign Update will be silent from July 11 through July 23 because Dave needs some down time.]

It’s hard to imagine how the week just past could have gone any worse for America’s Democrat Party, i.e., the Party of Antifa, the Party of AOC, the Party of Socialism, the Party of open borders, the Party of Creepy Uncle Joe and The Commie and Fauxcahontas and rioting and flag-burning and lying fake news media and protesting celebrations of America’s Independence Day.

Seriously, when the three most lasting images of the week are of Antifa rioters assaulting dozens of innocent Americans in Portland and Washington, DC, leftist protesters burning the American flag on July 4, and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez lying relentlessly about things she did not actually see or do on a trip to the U.S./Mexico border, your party is having a week to forget.

The week began horribly for the Dems, as President Donald Trump made history by becoming the first U.S. president to walk across the DMZ into North Korea. Despite the best efforts of the media to suppress them, the images of that historic moment for peace went viral all over social media for the next several days. All grumpy Democrats could do was whine about the meeting somehow legitimizing the Crazy Little Fat Guy, but in reality, all that did in the public’s mind was make the Dems sound like a bunch of, well, grumps.

The early week festivities continued with Irish Bob O’Rourke, so desperate over his failure to attract votes in the United States, going across the border into Mexico to campaign instead. There, Mexican citizens no doubt made much fun of the freakish, arm-waving yankee.

Oh, but it just got better on the border, folks, much better – if you aren’t a Democrat, that is. Cory Spartacus Booker, seeing Irish Bob’s stunt as a challenge, decided it would be a great thing for him to go down to the border and break all sorts of U.S. laws by personally escorting illegal aliens into the United States. While Spartacus was no doubt duly impressed with his own self, few actual Americans noticed, and fewer still were similarly impressed.

Not to be outdone, AOC, partly participating in a tour of a detention facility in Clint, Texas with 13 fellow Democrat demagogues, caused an uproar, which is her only true core competency. She began screaming at U.S. Customs and Border Patrol personnel as soon as she entered the facility, then refused to participate in the tour, choosing instead to park herself in a holding area as the rest of the group went through the building. She then posted a series of abject lies on her Twitter feed, pretending to have actually toured the facility. Her supporters went nuts – which is also the only thing they’re any good at doing – and it took two days for the truth to actually filter out, by which time the actress AOC had moved on to her next performance.

AOC’s week ended with San Fran Nan throwing her under the bus in a fawining, softball interview with the terminally smarmy Maureen Dowd in the New York Times.

Oof.

Creepy Uncle Joe Biden spent the entire week clarifying, apologizing, and lashing out at his tormentors as he watched his standing in the various polls fade, as it inevitably must. By the end of the week, two separate polls had his once-grand 20+ point lead over the field sitting at just 2% ahead of the opportunistic Kamala Harris. Biden’s faithful army of fake media defenders were left only to brag about his “huge” fundraising haul of $21 million for the second quarter of the year, always forgetting to point out that President Trump raised $24 million in the first 24 hours after he formally announced his candidacy.

Ouch.

Then came July 4, and the wonderful celebration of America’s Independence planned and staged by your President, Donald J. Trump. The Dems and their media hacks had spent the entire week slamming the entire thing as just another Trump campaign event, but any American who actually watched the festivities and failed to be inspired by it is most likely, well, a Democrat. Everyone else thought it was wonderful.

While ordinary Americans were celebrating their wonderful nation, Democrats all across the country were burning flags and assaulting other Americans. Meanwhile, their presidential candidates, all of whom had spent the week slamming the President for presumably “politicizing” Independence Day, spent July 4th at campaign events where they slammed the President and politicized Independence Day.

You seriously can’t make this stuff up, folks.

There was a raft of great news for America and Americans this week, and great news for America and Americans was, as always, terrible news for the Democrat Party. The stock market reached new all-time highs during the week for about the 65,000th time in the Trump presidency, throwing Morning Joe and the editorial board at the New York Times into fits of depression.

Friday’s jobs report came in at a whopping 224,000, “shocking” all the “experts” who had all agreed it would only amount to about 165,000. All of this means that, despite the best efforts of Democrats and the fake news media to talk it down, the Trump economy just keeps rolling along, and the recession Democrats have been praying for remains nowhere in sight.

All the Dems in and out of the media got even more depressed Saturday night when the Washington Post and ABC were forced to reveal that the President’s rating in their fake poll had reached an all-time high.

By the end of the week, Democrats and their media toadies were so bereft of anything positive that they were left to panic about the rumor that the President may be considering replacing National Security Advisor John Bolton – a war hawk who these same Dems and media toadies have spent the last 15 years mercilessly vilifying – with someone who would favor getting the U.S. military out of the 18-year war in Afghanistan and Barack Obama’s misadventure in Syria.

Grumps, liars, extremists, and black-clad masked brutes: That is what the Democrat Party has become in 2019.

It’s not a good look, folks.

That is all.

The Week in Review: America’s Daddy Wins Bigly Abroad While the Kids Misbehave Back Home

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

Here’s your Week in Review:  While the Democrats were back home frightening most Americans half to death with the insanity of their televised debates, and the Party’s terrorist wing, Antifa, was assaulting and sending a reporter to the hospital during a riot in Portland, Oregon, America’s Daddy was over in Japan and Korea making history and winning for America.

First came the meeting with Chinese President Xi Jinping, an obviously successful meeting that results in the re-start of U.S./China trade negotiations and which will set the stock markets afire come Monday. Here are the President’s tweets summarizing the meeting:

About 10 hours later, the President was in South Korea, toasting a key new trade deal with South Korean President Moon Jae-in.:

Seven hours after that, President Donald J. Trump became the first sitting U.S. president to set foot in North Korea, as he met Kim Jong Un at the demilitarized zone that has separated the two Koreas for more than 65 years.:

We cannot overestimate the symbolic importance of the meeting with Kim, or its interrelationship with President Trump’s just-concluded meeting with Xi Jinping. Because this meeting, timed as it was, very likely tells the world that Kim has been given the nod by Xi to negotiate a deal with the U.S. and the rest of the world to de-nuclearize the Korean peninsula. It also symbolically tells the world that both Trump and Xi believe they will soon successfully conclude a comprehensive trade deal between the two most powerful economies on earth.

You have to remember that North Korea has long been and remains a client state of China. There is no way on God’s green earth that Kim would have had the audacity to hold this symbolic meeting with a U.S. President had he not gotten the go-ahead from President Xi, and that go-ahead depended entirely on the outcome of Xi’s meeting with President Trump.

For all the fake media bluster about how Donald Trump is some sort of mad man, an out-of-control man-child in need of mental care, what we have seen this historic week is the nation’s Daddy traveling around the world doing deals to ensure the security and prosperity of his family while the spoiled children mis-behaved back home.

This is #WINNING, bigly, for America, and no, I will never get tired of it.

That is all.

Vote Republican. It’s Your Civic Duty.

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Hey!  There’s an election tomorrow!  I will be live-blogging it here starting at 6:00 p.m. Central Time.  Please join me in the comments section for tons of fun as the results either make me look like the smartest guy on the planet or a damn fool.  Could go either way.

Get out and vote for Republicans. – If you haven’t already done so, get your sorry butt out to the polls tomorrow and vote Republican.  Period.  There is nothing to think about here.  Just find that “Straight Republican” button and hit it. Oh, and then wait and watch to make sure that your voting machine then populates the votes properly, because we have had reports of things not working properly (imagine that).

And yes, vote the straight Republican ticket, regardless of where you live.  I’m in Texas, as most of you know by now, and this is the easiest decision we’ve ever had.  I’m a ticket-splitter from way back, but way back was when there were still decent people running for office as Democrats.  No more.

Anyone who buys into today’s Democrat agenda, which includes stuff like Antifa, assaulting Trump supporters in public places, rampant voter fraud, single-payer healthcare, raising your taxes and open borders, is not a decent person.  Sorry, they just aren’t.  They might be good fathers, loving mothers and otherwise good citizens, but if they support the Democrat agenda, they can no longer be described as decent human beings. That’s what 25 years of running the party on the principles of Saul Alinsky has done for them.

If you have a problem with any Republican candidate, just remember that his or her opponent is a Democrat, and your problem becomes no problem at all. Democrats are not allowed anymore to be independent operators. A guy like Irish Bob O’Rourke is promising to go to Washington and buck the system, becoming an “independent voice” for Texans.

The truth is that Irish Bob would become the de facto third senator from New York as Chuck Schumer leads him around by the nose, telling him not only how to vote on every issue, but also which approved talking points to recite during his appearances on CNN and MSNBC. Hell, if you’re Joe Manchin, Schumer even dictates which lines at the State of the Union speech you can stand and applaud.  Manchin’s a three-term incumbent – you think a rookie from Texas is going to be treated any better?

The same goes for Colin Allred, the guy running against GOP incumbent congressman Pete Sessions.  Allred is a very good-looking and articulate guy, promising to go to Washington and challenge San Fran Nan at every turn on behalf of Texans. The truth is that San Fran Nan would have him wrapped around her crooked little finger about 5 minutes after he lands at Reagan National Airport.  Because Democrats march in lockstep on every issue. Period.

So, if you’re thinking about voting for O’Rourke or Allred, think again.  They’re Democrats.  If you’re thinking of voting for the Democrat (whomever it is) running against George P. Bush for Texas Land Commissioner because you don’t like Bush’s plan to turn the Alamo and surrounding grounds into a glorified amusement park, well, join the crowd.  But do you think the Democrat has a better idea?  Seriously?  What would that be – to turn it over to the federal Department of the Interior for safe keeping?

C’mon, man.  Be serious.

In the past two years, America has embarked on an almost unprecedented period of relative peace in the world and economic growth. The Trump Administration has reasserted American authority at the United Nations, NATO and all the various G-7, G-20 and whatever other G-something or other summits there are these days. The horrendous turmoil in the Middle East that resulted from the Obama-sanctioned “Arab Spring” has been greatly calmed and ISIS has been largely destroyed.

The Crazy Little Fat Guy over in North Korea hasn’t fired a missile in hostility in many months, and his main interactions with the U.S. these days involve requesting more meetings with the Secretary of State and other U.S. representatives to get approval for his next step toward decommissioning his country’s nuclear capabilities.

Russia, which invaded Crimea, Syria and the Ukraine during the Obama years, hasn’t invaded anyone since January 20, 2017.  This is not a coincidence.  China has been helpful with the Trump approach to North Korea, and now appears ready to make a real trade deal after five months of escalating “trade war” with the United States has begun to damage its economy.

So, after you’ve had a couple of cups of coffee and showered tomorrow morning (yes, please shower for everyone’s sake), go vote.  For Republicans.  Straight ticket.  It’s not just the right idea, it’s your duty if you love this country.  It’s the easiest decision you’ve ever had.

And now, for some final predictions:

The Republicans will gain a net 4 senate seats, defeating McCaskill in Missouri, Heitcamp in North Dakota, and some combination of Tester in Montana, Manchin in West Virginia, Nelson in Florida and Donnelly in Indiana.  They will lose some combination of Heller in Nevada or McSally in Arizona.  The net of all of that will be a 4-seat gain and an overall 55-seat majority for the next two years.

In the House, the Republicans hold onto their advantage, losing a net 15 seats.

That’s where I’ve been since January, and I see no reason to change now.

In some specific high-profile races:

Irish Bob “Beto” O’Rourke’s $80 million campaign will buy him 45% of the vote in his race against Ted Cruz.  Four years ago, $30 million got Wendy Davis 39% of the vote.  So, if the Democrats can throw about $125 million behind some chosen golden child in 2022, they might actually win a race in Texas.

But this year, Republicans will win every statewide election in Texas, as they have done in every statewide election cycle since 1994.

Republican Brian Kemp will win 52% of the vote in the Georgia governor’s race, just enough to avoid a runoff there.

In Florida, the early voting is tilting very nicely for the Republicans, who always have a significant voting edge on Election Day.  Based on that, I think Ron DeSantis will eke out a very narrow win in the governor’s race over Democrat/socialist Andrew Gillum there.

Again, I’m either going to look like a genius or a damn fool come Wednesday morning, but we’ll have fun tomorrow night regardless.
That is all.

[UPDATED] CNN, NYTimes Dummy up Some Great Fake News in Advance of GDP Report

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

God bless them and their families. – The remains of 55 U.S. soldiers killed during the Korean Conflict more than 65 years ago arrived back in the United States on Thursday, as part of the commitments Kim Jong Un made to President Donald Trump in their meeting in Singapore last month.  The transfer coincides with the 65th anniversary of the armistice that created the demilitarized zone between North Korea and South Korea and ended the active military fighting phase of the Conflict.  The U.S. government believes that the remains of around 5,300 U.S. military personnel still reside in North Korea, so yesterday’s event was just a down payment on what will be a long and somber process.

The #FakeNews follies just keep on coming. – In a desperate effort to distract public attention from this morning’s release of what is expected to be very strong 2nd quarter GDP numbers, the fake news media worked overtime rolling out the rumors yesterday.

My favorite bit of fake news came from New York Times Clinton shill Maggie Haberman, who “reported” that, according to anonymous sources (of course), Special Counsel Robert Mueller and his band of merry Clinton/Obama hacks are now scouring President Trump’s Twitter feed in their ongoing efforts to dummy up a fake obstruction of justice charge.  While Ms. Haberman no doubt intended this fake news to be some sort of bombshell, if it’s true, it’s actually wonderful news for the President and his supporters because it is such a sign of rank desperation on the part of the Mueller team.

Think about it:  Mueller has had dozens of hack lawyers and FBI investigators working round the clock for more than a year now, feverishly searching for some evidence – any real evidence at all would do – that the President somehow obstructed justice during the early days of his presidency.  And he’s got bupkis.  Nothing.  Nada.  Zippo.  Zilch.  So he’s now reduced to assigning these high-powered hacks and gumshoes to spend their days going through the Twitter account of the President of the United States of America, hoping against hope that some smoking gun has just been sitting there in the public domain for months and none of the hundreds of millions of Twitter users have noticed.

Good luck with that, Bob.

Then you have the ever-reliable CNN (why do almost all of these fake news stories originate with either the NYTimes or CNN?) fake reporting that weasel shyster Michael Cohen is supposedly willing to tell Mueller that then-candidate Donald Trump knew in advance of the infamous October 2016 meeting his son Don, Jr. had with that Russian lawyer who the FBI and Clinton Campaign knew all about and were probably paying.

CNN says its “report” is based on “sources with knowledge”.  Well hell, I have “knowledge” of all of this – so do probably half of the people in the United States, given all the time CNN and the myriad other fake news outlets have spent on their vain attempts to turn what was a basic opposition research meeting into some sort of crime over the last 10 months.  I mean, seriously, that vague description by CNN could mean that its “source” for this information is the guy running the hot dog truck down on the corner of 43rd Street and 7th Avenue (those are really great hot dogs, by the way).

But let’s think about what this story means if it turns out to be true:  It means that the candidate knew that his son and others working on his campaign knew they were doing some opposition research, meeting with someone who claimed to have damaging information about their opponent.  If that can be turned into some sort of criminal act, then everyone every involved in any campaign anywhere in the United States needs to have a grand jury convened against them.

The reality is that Mr. Cohen is a desperate man who finds himself on the brink of being prosecuted for allegations of bank fraud, tax fraud and myriad other crimes unrelated to the Trump campaign or presidency.  He is also a notorious serial liar who is willing to say pretty much anything to keep himself from going to prison, where a soft guy like him probably would not fare too well.  So it would not be at all surprising that he might be willing to tell CNN’s alleged story to Mueller to get a deal.

But make no mistake about it:  The reason why you are seeing this story and Ms. Haberman’s bit of news fakery all over your TV sets this morning is simply to give the entirety of America’s fake news media an excuse to by and large ignore the very positive GDP growth numbers that will be released later this morning.

Timing is everything in life, especially if your job is the daily faking of the news.

[UPDATE]  About 5 minutes after I posted this piece, the President began addressing this very subject on his Twitter feed (it’s amazing how often this happens – you’d think he’s reading these things as I type them):

Obviously at least one more to come – I’ll do an update when he posts it.

[Update 2]  aaaaaannnnnd 2 minutes later, here it is:

 

 

Just another day in all #FakeNews all the time America.

Donald Trump is Changing Everything

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

I wonder what else President Donald Trump will never do?  –

“He won’t last a week.”

“He won’t stay in this race past the first debate.”

“He never survive those comments about John McCain.”

“That first debate was the beginning of the end for Donald Trump.”

“He’ll never be able to compete with Jeb!”

“He’ll be out of the race before the Iowa Caucuses.”

“No way he wins the New Hampshire Primary.”

“South Carolina will be the beginning of the end for Donald Trump.”

“No way he beats Ted Cruz in Indiana.”

“No way he survives the Billy Bush tape.”

“He’ll never win Florida.”

“Ohio, Michigan and Pennsylvania are blue states.”

“He’ll resign the office by April.”

“He’ll quit before the end of 2017.”

“He can’t just let the oil industry drill our way to energy security.”

“He’ll never pull out of the Paris Accords.”

“No way he’ll ever get those tax cuts done.”

“He’ll never pull out of the Iran deal.”

“He can’t wave a magic wand and bring all those manufacturing jobs back.”

“He’ll never achieve 3% GDP growth.”

“He’ll never make a deal with Kim Jong un.”

This morning, it continues:

“The U.S. and North Korea are still miles apart.”

“North Korea has already won a lot.”  (Huh???)

And on and on and on it will continue, because the fake news media and the Democrats have nothing else – this is all they’ve got.

You want to know who else hates Donald Trump with a renewed passion this morning?  The Washington, D.C. professional foreign policy class.  Why?  Because the President just demonstrated that they are clueless, irrelevant and often counterproductive to our nation’s security.

This class of leeches on the American taxpayer has bumbled, stumbled and fumbled around with the North Korea problem for 64 years, and every effort they’ve made and every diplomatic shibboleth to which they have clung has only made the situation worse.  Here comes Donald Trump, this “know-nothing” who doesn’t even speak the passive/aggressive, get-nothing-done, move-at-a-snail’s-pace language of “diplomacy” and rejects every myth these people have constructed around the issue since 1954, and he has an agreement to completely de-nuclearize the Korean Peninsula to send to the Senate for ratification?

Why has this happened?  First, because this President, over the course of 14 months, threatened the little Dictator into the realization that his situation was hopeless and that he had a choice of entering into some agreement or end up engaged in a military conflict he had no hope of winning.  Second, because the American President allowed him to take the right way out of his mess while saving face.  That’s what meeting with Kim face to face – an act no previous president would have even considered on the feverish advice of this foreign policy class of morons – was all about.

The third reason is that this President has also been negotiating this deal with China behind the scenes for more than a year now.  The subject of China’s client state has been made a part of every conversation between Donald Trump and Xi Jinping and every negotiation between the two nations on trade and other matters.  By strategically making China an integral part of this process, President Trump has also allowed Xi to save face, which is crucially important.

So here we have arrived at an historic turning point in global history, a turning point that holds the promise of making every nation on the face of the earth more secure, and it has happened not because of the efforts and advice of the professional foreign policy class, but in spite of it.  Oh, yeah – they hate Trump, they hate him with a passion this morning.

One raving idiot early this morning actually claimed America is “getting nothing” out of this deal.  My goodness.  Here is what America has already gotten:

  • The return of three political prisoners, unharmed, to their families;
  • The destruction of Kim’s main nuclear testing facility, which took place a month ago and the fake news media wants you to forget happened;

Here is what America stands to gain:

  • The destruction of Kim’s remaining nuclear capability, which Trump expects to happen “quickly”;
  • The reduction of nuclear tensions across the globe;
  • The stand-down of U.S. armed forces in South Korea after 64 long years;
  • The return of the remains of thousands of U.S. servicemen killed during the Korean conflict to their families;
  • The saving of tens of billions of dollars every year thanks to being relieved of the burden of having to defend South Korea, Japan, Guam, Hawaii and the U.S. mainland from the machinations of a seemingly mad, nuclear-armed dictator.
  • An ultimate end to the uninterrupted risking of thousands of American military lives in a foreign land halfway around the world.

Yeah, that’s a big bag of nothing right there.  Where do they find these clowns?

So, add the professional foreign policy class to all the other classes of DC Swamp creatures who already hated this President:  The professional campaign class, the professional influence class, the campaign advertising and messaging class, the fake news media class, and all the other classes of DC hangers-on that he has shown to be irrelevant since he announced his campaign in mid-2015.

This is history being made on a grand scale, and it’s all taking place so rapidly that we often hardly have the chance to pause and take it all in.  Donald Trump receives and deserves the credit for it, but it’s important to also give credit to the American voter, without whose judgment Mr. Trump would have never assumed office.

The American people took a huge risk on a very unconventional candidate in November 2016, and they are being richly rewarded for having done so.

Just another day of Donald Trump is changing everything America.

That is all.

The G7 Summit: Trump’s Reykjavik Moment

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Someone really needs to relieve John McCain of his I-phone. – The guy whose rejection by the American people gave us Barack Hussein Obama got all upset on Saturday over President Trump’s refusal to bow to our Euro-Canadian betters at the G7 summit, and decided to send the following tweet:

There is absolutely no evidence whatsoever that a bipartisan majority of the American people remain pro-globalization, but nevermind, the Senator from the news media has decided it is so.  And so, the guy who could not win the presidency in his own right decides to undermine the trade policy efforts of the guy who was able to win the presidency.

Delete your account, Senator McCain, and while you’re at it, resign the senate seat that you have not manned for a single day this year.  It’s time.

We are witnessing history on a grand scale. – Make no mistake about it, this G7 meeting was the most consequential such meeting ever held, an event every bit as crucial for the future of the free world as Reagan’s walking away from Gorbachev’s siren song at Reykjavik in 1986.  This is true for one simple reason:  The most powerful nation present, by far, now refuses to speak with the forked tongue of globalism.  What’s more, probably the second most powerful nation present – at least economically – is also trending in that direction.

Take a look at this very telling picture:

The first thing you notice is that the only guy seated is completely dominating the room.  He’s the absolute center of everyone’s attention, the singular target of their pleading and scolding.  The second thing you notice is the body language of Shinzo Abe, the Prime Minister of Japan, is exactly the same as President Trump’s.  They’re both taking in the preaching of Macron and Merkel, and not buying a word of what they’re saying.

Why?  Because they both know that these European peacocks are powerless without the backing of the United States of America.  Abe, in fact, knows that is the truth about his own country, and has been the truth since the end of World War II.

Despite all the shrill denunciations of President Trump in the fake American news media today, every bit of real leverage in that room is on America’s side.  The leaders of the other G7 nations know that, they know their economies can’t survive without the American largesse and one-sided trade practices they’ve enjoyed for 70+ years, and that is why they so detest Donald Trump.  He refuses to speak the false language of globalism that Senator McCain wants him to speak and which every previous U.S. president since Reagan has gladly spoken.

Senator McCain and his fellow establishment Republicans, along with every Democrat and fake journalist practicing today would have Mr. Trump simply surrender all that leverage, all that power, in the name of globalism and their fool’s notion of “fairness.”

This President isn’t going to do that because, unlike his four immediate predecessors in office, he understands the crucial nature of leverage and power, and plans to keep using both to advance the interests not of some international “world order”, but of the American people.

Today, he arrives in Singapore for preparations for his June 12 summit meeting with the Crazy Little Fat Guy from North Korea, Kim Jong Un.  The very same establishment Republicans, Democrats and fake journalists and talking heads who for the past two days have scolded President Trump for having the  nerve to jealously protect American interests and deploy our country’s massive leverage in international negotiations will now shift to fretting that Mr. Trump is now going to somehow completely surrender all that leverage and power in his negotiations with the little Rocket Man.

The hilarious part of all of this is that they’re all too dim and lacking in self-awareness to even understand the massive inherent contradictions and rank hypocrisy in their own arguments.  There is absolutely no reason at all to believe that this President – in stark contrast to his predecessors – will do anything other than jealously protect American interests and strongly deploy U.S. leverage while at the same time giving Kim the opportunity to concede what he must concede in order to improve his and his country’s situation.

But hey, this is what these people do – what they have been doing for the last 30 years, in fact.  It’s all they know, and it’s why our country is in inherently unfair trade agreements with pretty much every other major economy on the face of the earth, and it’s why Trump inherited a situation in which North Korea had been able to build its own nuclear capability as the free world stood by and did nothing.

In the magnificent press conference he held as he exited the G7 to head for Singapore on Saturday, the President in fact placed the blame for all of this squarely where it belongs:  On America’s past leaders.  “They can’t charge us 270 percent and we charge them nothing, that doesn’t work anymore,” he said before adding that he believes these other countries are now, despite outward appearances, committed to moving toward fairer trade agreements.  “I don’t blame them, I blame our leaders,” he continued. “In fact, I congratulate leaders of other countries for so crazily being able to make those trade deals that were so good for their country and bad for the United States.”

Exactly.  Our leaders have been suckers for too long.

“We are like the piggy bank that everybody is robbing,” he added,  “And that ends.”

John McCain and his fellow globalists hate that, because treating the American taxpayer as a massive piggy bank is what they’ve done for their entire adult lives.  Trump threatens their entire world view, and that’s why they hate him so desperately.

It’s very important – and telling – to note that Ronald Reagan received exactly the same reaction from milquetoast Republicans and the fake American news media after he walked away from Reyjavik.  Less than 3 years after he did that, the Soviet Union collapsed and the Berlin Wall came down.

It’s isn’t going to take that long for Trump to get the more favorable trade deals he is seeking from these powerless apparatchiks.  It will probably all be done within a year.  Because at the end of the day, all the leverage and power are in America’s hands, and Trump isn’t going to surrender it.

Just another day of Trump putting America first, and all the globalists hating him for it.

That is all.

That “Blue Wave” May Be About to Become a “Red Flood”

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Irrelevant.  Americans today need to know what too much #WINNING does to them. – The National Centers for Environmental Information (there’s your all-time politically correct name) issued a report on Monday that says that watching too much bad news can be hazardous to one’s health.  So now you know why all of your Democrat friends are feeling so bad these days.

Where were these guys when Obama and Kerry were surrendering to Iran’s Mullahs? – Senate Democrats, feeling a sudden need to pretend to care about U.S. national security – something that historically only happens when a Republican president is about to achieve a major foreign policy victory for the country – issued their list of “demands” for what President Trump must include in any treaty with North Korea that will need to be ratified in the Senate.

These demands include the following:

  1. The deal must include the dismantlement and removal of all nuclear, chemical, and biological weapons from North Korea.
  2. The U.S. must ensure a “complete and verifiable denuclearization of North Korea,” removing all items related to nuclear-weapons production to prevent the country from reversing course.
  3. North Korea must end its ballistic-missile program as well.
  4. North Korea must comply with “anywhere, anytime” inspections to ensure it is not cheating on the deal, and sanctions must be immediately restored if it does cheat.
  5. The deal must be permanent.

If it strikes you that this list of “demands” reads like the list of goals the Trump Administration has been talking about in advance of the June 12 summit meeting in Singapore, that’s because they basically are one and the same.

Look, the Democrats are beginning to panic about their prospects in November’s mid-term elections.  Bereft of any bright policy ideas of their own which might attract new voters, they are now going about the process of attempting to co-opt conservative positions on issues, starting with the negotiations with North Korea.  This is what Bill Clinton taught them to do in 1996, and it’s what they’ve tried in every election cycle since that time.

Just a couple of months ago they and their fake news media agents were convinced that they were headed towards a grand victory, a “Blue Wave” that would see them win a majority in the U.S. House of Representatives, maybe the Senate as well, and make sweeping gains in state governorships and legislative houses all over the country.

But what had once been as much as an 18-point lead in congressional generic preference polling has now essentially disappeared as the Trump tax cuts have kicked the economy into high gear and good news for America continues to pour in from around the world.  Americans are becoming optimistic about the future again – one recent “right direction/wrong direction” shows the “right direction” answer coming in at its highest level in many years – and that is never a positive sign for the eternally depressed and negative Democrats, who rely on human misery and suffering to build voter support.

Think about it:  Have you seen a single Democrat politician or liberal talking head on your television talk about what a great thing it is that the Black and Hispanic rates of unemployment are at all-time lows?  No, of course you haven’t.  Democrats don’t want Blacks and Hispanics to have jobs – Democrats want Blacks and Hispanics to be dependent on the government because that’s the best way to ensure they will continue to vote in overwhelming majorities for Democrats.

So, Democrat “leaders” – such as they are – see all this good news taking place, they see Kanye West and other young African American leaders beginning to speak out about this orthodoxy they’ve held in place for half a century, and they have no idea at all what to do about it other than to resort back to the “triangulation” tactic they’ve employed in every election cycle for 22 years.  That’s what this Korea canard is all about, and you’re going to see more of that kind of co-option of GOP positions taking place in the coming weeks.

Because the reality is that, as we sit here today, the overarching national momentum in this election cycle is firmly behind the Republicans now, just as the overarching mood of the public had moved behind Donald Trump’s candidacy at this point in 2016.  That could change between now and November, but it would take some extraordinary paradigm-shifting event to make it happen.

When you see San Fran Nan advocating for additional tax cuts and Chuckie Schumer out in Chicago or Detroit or Baltimore talking about the need to get tough on crime, you’ll know for sure that the once-vaunted “Blue Wave” is about to turn into a “Red Flood.”  This is all very predictable.

About that Bill Clinton interview… – It occurs to me this morning that this NBC interview with Bill Clinton and an extremely uncomfortable James Patterson is a real teaching moment for Millennials.  Because this is the first time in their adult lives that they have seen the real Bill Clinton that we all had to deal with throughout the decade of the ’90s put on display for everyone to see.

There he was in all his sociopathic glory, shifting blame, denying responsibility, angry at being questioned, refusing to apologize and pretending that it is indeed he who is the actual victim here.  Bill’s all about the whole #MeToo movement, only in his mind it’s all about him, not the many women he abused throughout his adult life.  Poor, poor persecuted Bill.  Why, I kept waiting for him to toss out the whole “vast rightwing conspiracy” canard just for fun.

Here’s a hint for all you Millennials who were not really following politics while Bill was chasing 22 year-old interns around the Oval Office:  The most telling line of that entire interview is when he says, when asked about his Monica Lewinsky scandal, “Nobody believes I got out of that for free. I left the White House $16 million in debt.”

See, with the Clintons, it was always all about the money.  Bill and Hillary Clinton are America’s Greatest Grifters.  Everything they did, every office they sought was all about what was in it for them.  Their having debt at the end of Bill’s terms in office – fact-checkers show it wasn’t really even close to the number Billy boy tossed out – was in their minds justification for having Hillary turn her gig as Obama’s Secretary of State into a classic mob influence racket in which she was only too happy to sell U.S. foreign policy decisions to the highest bidders.

The Clintons – both of them – were always just in it for the money.  They were always looking for their next scam.  For Hillary, being elected President was going to be the most glorious scam of all.

Be happy she didn’t make it there.

Just another day in Panicking Democrats America.

That is all.

Twerking FBI Agents, Fired Korean Generals and Another Fake News Media-Invented Controversy. *Yawn*

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

That time when Bill Clinton accidentally stumbled into the truth. – Lifetime woman abuser (that has nothing to do with this story, but it should be repeated every time his name is mentioned) Bill Clinton told an interviewer over the weekend that – gasp! – the  news media gave favorable treatment to Barack Hussein Obama.  Go figure.  Who knew?

“They liked him. And they liked having the first African American president and he was a good president I think,” Clinton said about the media.  Uh-ooooohhhhhhh.  He went ‘there’, the place no one is ever supposed to go in telling the actual truth about the media’s treatment of Obama, and it naturally caused the extremely predictable outrage among social justice warriors on social media.  So tiresome.

Clinton also told the same interviewer that “I couldn’t be elected anything now ’cause I just don’t like embarrassing people,” after being asked what would happen if he ran in 2020.  Funny, he never had any problem at all embarrassing Paula Jones or Monica Lewinsky or Kathleen Willey or Juanita Broaddrick or Sandra James or Christy Zercher or…ok, enough.

Go away, Bill.  Just.  go.  away.

Hey, the FBI is just one grand dumpster fire at this point, huh? – An off-duty FBI agent was twerking on a Denver dance floor Saturday night.  What could possibly go wrong, you ask?

Well, let me tell you.  The guy – who has yet to be publicly identified so we call all shame him out of his job – took time away from twerking long enough to do an awkward back flip, during the course of which his service handgun very predictably fell from its holster onto the floor.  Not that big a deal, you say, right?  Could happen to anybody who feels the need to carry their favorite pistol with them when they go out for a night of shaking their booty.

But wait, this story gets worse.  Much, much worse.

This studly, twerking FBI agent with a bad case of Saturday Night Fever naturally panics (because apparently that’s what they train FBI agents to do these days) and scrambles to grab his gun.  In the process of doing that, he pulls the damn trigger and because he hadn’t bothered to set the damn safety, it goes off, hitting a bystander in the leg.

So, you’re a well-trained FBI agent who has just accidentally shot a bystander in the leg with your service gun while out for a night of imitating Mylie Cyrus – what do you do?  Well, this guy, no doubt implementing the exact training he personally learned from ex-FBI Director and current Teenage Drama Queen James Comey, calmly re-holstered his pistol and just walked away, leaving others to call for an ambulance and get the victim to the hospital.  After all, he’s probably too busy fixing some election there in Colorado.

This is your FBI in action, folks.  I swear I don’t make this stuff up.  Who could?

Chances for a Korea de-nuke deal just got better.  Much, much better. – Don’t expect the fake news media to put much emphasis on this very key story since it’s great news for America and thus terrible news for Democrats, but Reuters reports that, according to senior U.S. officials, the three top generals in the North Korean armed forces were replaced over the weekend.

So, why is this important?  Read this from the Japanese Yonhap News Agency, from a report released later on Sunday:

“The North appears to have brought in new figures amid the changes in inter-Korean relations and the situation on the Korean Peninsula as the previous officials lacked flexibility in thinking.”

The phrase “lacked flexibility in thinking” means the three guys who were replaced were opposed to the Crazy Little Fat Guy doing any deal with the U.S. and South Korea to de-nuclearize the Korean Peninsula.  These three firings come a few weeks after Army Gen. Kim Su-gil’s replacement of Kim Jong-gak as director of the General Political Bureau of the Korean People’s Army.  Taken all together, they most likely give Kim Jong Un the flexibility he needs to move forward on a deal because he no longer has to worry about a military coup taking place while he’s out of the country.  Funny how that works.

Democrats and their fake news agents will do their best to ignore this crucial development or spin it into something negative.  Of course, that’s been their strategy with the booming economy and employment numbers too, and we see how well that’s all working out for them.  It’s just a joy to watch them stumble and bumble around on this stuff.

Your fake news media in action! – Ask leading question, get answer you wanted to the leading question, spin into negative story about Trump.  Wash, rinse and repeat.  Whenever there’s a semi-slow news day, or a day in which the news for Trump just shows too much WINNING to report, this is the formula the fake news media uses to generate some new controversy.

So it went with Rudy Giuliani Sunday on ABC’s This Week With George Stephanopoulous, the former Clinton toady who pretends to be a news guy now.  When Georgie the Toady asked Giuliani if the President has the power to pardon himself, Rudy gave the correct answer:  Yes.  See, Rudy’s actually read the Constitution, which very clearly gives any sitting president the power to pardon anyone he wants.

Giuliani went on to say that President Trump has never and would never even consider doing any such thing, but the fake news media had its fake controversy for the day, a controversy that enabled all the fake reporters, fake editors and fake talking heads to change the subject from the booming economy and very encouraging developments on the North Korea front.

Thus, we ended up with an entire afternoon of endless speculation in the fake news media about whether a President who has committed no crimes and has not even been accused of committing any crimes and who his lawyer says has never even entertained the idea is actually planning to pardon himself.

You want to know why the formerly semi-noble profession of journalism is almost dead in this country?  This is just one of about 10,000 reasons, but it’s one of the biggest.

Just another day in Fake News Media America.

That is all.

Great News For America is Always Horrible News For Democrats. It’s a Rule.

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Yeah, that?  It’s not a good idea.  But please go ahead and do it anyway. – The genius program managers at ABC, panicked over the loss of their highest-rated spring program thanks to Roseanne Barr’s Twitter meltdown earlier this week, have now come up with the not-so-brilliant idea of doing a spinoff of “Roseanne” focused on the daughter, Darlene, played by the career mediocrity Sarah Gilbert.  Yeah, that’s not going to work, but I sure do hope they try.  It’s always fun watching these network sleazeballs fail.

Mr. Trudeau also requests that you all refrain from farting for the next 10 days. – And hey, the liberals up in Canada aren’t any better.  In preparations for hosting the upcoming G7 conference in Ottowa, boy king Justin Trudeau’s government has instructed the region’s farmers to avoid spreading manure-based fertilizers on their fields while the leaders from Italy, France, Germany, Great Britain, Japan and the U.S. are in town.  Wouldn’t want the international guests to experience any nasty odors, you know.

No word yet on whether the boy king has also placed travel bans into the country on Michael Moore, Samantha Bee and Kathy Griffin, but it seems likely.

 

Tired of all this Winning yet?  Part I – The news on the economy continues to be fantastic, with another tremendous jobs report for April, unemployment equaling the all-time low recorded since the statistic began to be measured in 1969, the labor participation rate at its highest in a decade, and black and Hispanic unemployment rates also at all-time lows.

The Atlanta branch of the Federal Reserve’s GDPNow forecast model now estimates second quarter GDP growth will come in at a whopping 4.8 percent, well above the 3% Trump target which was labeled impossible to achieve by America’s Biggest Mistake, Barack Obama.  Remember all the Obamatons’ talk about the “new normal” of 0-2% economic growth forever?  Funny, we don’t hear anyone saying that anymore.

The economy also added more than 20,000 manufacturing jobs during the single month of April.  Those are the jobs you may remember that Obama, speaking at an event at a Caterpillar location, told us were those old jobs that were “never coming back.”  Remember that?  The folks at booming Caterpillar certainly do.  When Donald Trump talked about bringing those jobs back on the campaign trail in 2015-16, Obama scoffed and said “you can’t just wave some magic wand” to make such jobs reappear.

Hey Barack, Yes We Can.

Tired of all this Winning yet?  Part II – Meanwhile, the increasingly sweating Democrats are so utterly bereft of any real idea on how to deal with all of this wonderful news for America (which is always horrible news for Democrats) that they sent the stammering, doddering San Fran Nan out in front of the TV cameras to say…wait for it….oh, this is a good one….“May’s jobs report shows that strong employment numbers mean little to the families hit with soaring new costs under the Republicans’ watch.”

No kidding, she really said that.  I swear I don’t make this stuff up.

So, the Democrat Party’s official response to all this fantastic jobs creation and economic growth is that it’s all bad because Republicans created it and Republicans are bad so it’s all bad.  Or something.  Did you follow that?  Yeah, nobody else did either.

Democrats.  If they didn’t exist, no one in their right mind would ever dream of making them up.

 

I hate to say I told you so, but hey, I told you so. – After receiving a gigantic letter (see below) from the Crazy Little Fat Guy in North Korea on Friday, President Trump announced to the leering fake news media that the summit meeting between the two men scheduled for June 12 in Singapore is going to happen after all.  This ‘news’ came as a shock to all the fake reporters and editors in our fake news media, because none of them have taken the time to try to understand how the President conducts strategic negotiations.

Those of you who read the daily Campaign Updates knew all of this a week ago.  No need to thank me.   This isn’t exactly rocket science here.

This wonderful news for America is also horrible news for Democrats (do you sense a recurring theme here?).  If the President is able to successfully negotiate a framework for the verifiable and permanent de-nuclearization of the Korean Peninsula with the Crazy Little Fat Guy, the Democrats may never recover.  Even an agreement in principle to begin a process would put a huge nail in the coffin of the already-pretty-much-dead “Blue Wave” that the Democrat agents in the fake news media were raving about as recently as March.

Because, repeat with me, Great News For America is Always Horrible News For Democrats.  There are no exceptions to this immutable rule.

Just another day in Donald Trump is killing the Democrat Party America.

That is all.
