Conservatives Should Watch Tulsi Gabbard and Learn

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

You go, Tulsi. – I’ve consistently called Tulsi Gabbard one of the two actual interesting candidates in the Democrat presidential field, along with Andrew Yang. That’s not because I agree with either of those two about much, but because they are the only two people in the race who actually speak their own minds rather than just parroting talking points written and handed to them by staffers on any given day.

Of course, the relative independence of mind displayed by Gabbard is one of the main reasons why she and Yank literally had zero chance of really becoming any kind of force in the race, since the Democrat nominee will ultimately be decided either by a brianwashed voter base or, in the case of a split convention, the party bosses who brainwashed them.

All that having been said, I greeted the news that Gabbard had sued the pantsuit off the Pantsuit Princess this week with great joy and amusement. Gabbard is seeking $50 million in damages for the Coughing Crook’s allegation that the Hawaii Congresswoman and Major in the Army National Guard is a “Russian agent.” Of course, this is an accusation that the Grasping Grifter has leveled at a wide array of her tormentors since her 2016 campaign went down in flames, one so scurrilous that no one outside of the corrupt news media takes it seriously.

But obviously was highly offended by the Hacking Hag’s accusation, which was made a few months ago, and initially responded by demanding a retraction. Since that was not forthcoming, she decided to file a defamation suit, and it’s hard to blame her for doing so.

Good for her. While she probably has little chance of prevailing, this is a tactic that more people who are attacked by Democrat politicians and their media toadies need to be employing. There needs to be a cost for this kind of scurrilous behavior, and the only way to really cost these people is through their pocketbooks. If nothing else, Gabbard’s litigation will cost the Fainting Felon thousands of dollars in attorney’s fees.

And hey, if the other side thinks you’re getting some traction with the court, they may even offer to settle for millions, as CNN recently did in the defamation suit brought by Nicholas Sandmann and the Covington Catholic school. $25 million is real money for a fake news network that barely registers in the ratings anymore.

This is the kind of thing Republicans need to be doing – finding creative ways to exact a cost from the Democrats and their media hacks for all the outright lies they continue to spread. Every member of the Trump family and Trump cabinet should have defamation suits filed against CNN and MSNBC and their on-air talent like Fredo Cuomo and Rachel Maddow.

After all, the Democrats have zero reservations whatsoever using government money to hire highly-paid lawyers to corrupt our political system; witness the way they have used a vast team of Lawfare-affiliated contract lawyers to concoct and manage their impeachment scam against President Trump. The Democrats have also used the Lawfare people to tie up major Presidential executive orders and regulatory actions in the courts for months on end throughout this administration. It’s a very effective tactic, even though they pretty much always lose in the end, when the anti-constitutional decisions issued by their Obama-appointee federal judges generally get overturned by appellate courts or the Supreme Court. The bad guys lost again this week with the finalization of the Administration’s revised Waters of the United States regulation, but delay is the goal.

On the conservative side, however, things are different. Other than the various defamation suits brought by Sandmann and his lawyers, the most visible efforts to use the courts to police Democrat abuses come from the folks at Judicial Watch. Judicial Watch leader Tom Fitton and his folks do great work, but it’s like a David vs. Goliath battle that’s being fought in that arena.

Conservatives simply must become more active in this area and develop an effective counter-strategy to Lawfare’s activities, if only as a defensive strategy in the event of the election of another Democrat to the presidency. As things stand today, Democrat politicians and their toadies in the corrupt media are free to make any accusation they want, no matter how scurrilous and unfounded it may be, without consequence.

Ironically, Tulsi Gabbard, a Democrat presidential candidate, and Nick Sandmann, a high school student, are trying to show them the way. Is anyone watching and learning?

That is all.

Pelosi Creates Yet Another Impeachment Scam

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

If the Democrats didn’t have scams, they’d have nothing at all. – Lindsey Graham actually did something productive last week, and it deserves mentioning here. Despite the fact that there is literally zero chance that the resolution he introduced last Thursday condemning the sham fake impeachment process being run in the House right now could ever obtain the 60 votes needed for cloture, Graham’s ability to convince 50 of the 53 Senate Republicans to sign onto the resolution as sponsors demonstrated the resolve of the Senate majority to oppose any product from the current House process.

This effort by Graham produced two excellent results. First, it outed three GOP RINOs as being so disloyal that they can’t even vote to condemn the obviously anti-American, Soviet-style process being run in the basement of the Capitol building by Schiff and his gang of thugs. Those three senators are Susan Collins, Lisa Murkowski, and of course, Mitt Romney, the Murderers Row of Senate RINOs. It would be sad if it weren’t so tiresome and predictable. Alaska, Maine and Utah voters: What in the hell are you thinking?

The second excellent result produced by Graham’s resolution is that it put pressure on Pelosi to do something to anoint her sham process with some imprimatur of legitimacy. The obvious way to do that would be to hold a vote of the full House on a resolution to authorize a formal impeachment inquiry, a step that has been taken in every previous impeachment process in American history. Initial reports from our fake news media Monday morning indicated Pelosi would be doing exactly that. Silly us for believing anything our fake news media says anymore.

Those reports were, of course, completely false. Pelosi can’t hold a vote to authorize a formal impeachment inquiry for the simple fact that she still does not have enough members of her pathetic caucus willing to support such a resolution. She still has 35-40 Democrats who were elected in GOP-majority districts in 2018, and all of them know they will be signing their re-election chances away if they vote to authorize a formal, actual impeachment inquiry.

But that’s not the only problem Pelosi and Schiff have here. They also know that a vote to begin a real, formal impeachment inquiry would result in GOP house members on the relevant committees having the same powers to subpoena and question witnesses that the Democrats have under the current Soviet inquisition. Even worse, the Trump Administration would also then have similar rights and powers.

In other words, a formal impeachment inquiry would function in the way the American system of justice is supposed to function under our Constitutional Republican form of government, and we all know the Democrats can’t have that.

Thus, Pelosi, faced with the procedural roadblock set up by Graham’s resolution, decided she had to do what she and her fellow Democrats always do when one of their scams fails: Create another scam. So, she huddled up with her buddies over at Lawfare, who really run the House of Representatives these days, and came up with – you got it – another scam.

This scam will involve a vote – ostensibly of the “full House” – on a resolution “Directing certain committees to continue their ongoing investigations as part of the existing House of Representatives inquiry into whether sufficient grounds exist for the House of Representatives to exercise its Constitutional power to impeach Donald John Trump, President of the United States of America, and for other purposes.”

In other words, it is simply a vote to authorize the continuation of the current Soviet-style inquisition.  Pelosi believes that, with the always-willing help of the army of Democrat toadies in the fake news media, she will be able to convince the nation that this vote, since it involves all members of the House, somehow legitimizes her illegitimate process.

Doing it this way will also allow her 40 or so reluctant members to claim to voters next year that, hey, they didn’t vote for “impeachment,” they just voted to continue an inquiry into whether an impeachment was justified. See the difference? Yeah, neither will most of their voters.

But here’s the catch that she and Schiff are counting on: If even one Republican member of the House votes “yes” when her resolution comes to a vote on Thursday – and a handful have already indicated they support the current process – then they and their media toady army will be able to claim that this vote was “bipartisan.”

Pelosi and her Lawfare lieutenants are also hoping that this vote, if “bipartisan,” will be able to convey the judicial enforcement authority that their sham process currently lacks. This lack of authority is why the “subpoenas” that have been sent to the executive branch by Schiff thus far are nothing more than toothless letters with no enforcement authority.

This is San Fran Nan’s philosophy of governance: When nothing you do is legitimate, you do everything you can to legitimize the illegitimate. In this latest scam, she’s counting on that one Republican vote, and you can be sure that there is a Mitt Romney clone in the GOP caucus just salivating over the chance to give it to her.

That is all.

Trump’s Judicial Appointees are Winning for the American People

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

Tired of all this WINNING yet? – In case you missed it, the Dow Jones Industrial Average closed back above 27,000 on Wednesday, and is just a little more than 200 points off of its all-time highest close. Recession? What recession?

Tired of all this WINNING yet? Part II. – In advance of the resumption of U.S./China trade talks in early October, the Chinese government announced it would rescind existing tariffs on a raft of U.S. imports, including lubricants, anti-cancer drugs and some farm goods. In return, President Donald Trump announced a two-week delay in the implementation of new tariffs on about $250 billion worth of Chinese imports, scheduled to take effect on October 1. This move by China is largely seen as an indication that the government of Xi Jinping is anxious to reach a new trade agreement as China’s economy continues to suffer great damage from U.S. tariffs, while the U.S. economy just keeps steaming along.

Tired of all this WINNING yet? Part III. – In a historic milestone, the U.S. Senate on Wednesday confirmed President Trump’s 150th judicial nominee, as six district court nominees won confirmation. Mr. Trump has now appointed 2 supreme court justices, 43 appellate court judges and 105 judges to the district courts. This laser focus on appointing and confirming judges by the President and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell will have positive ramifications on this society for decades to come.

Tired of all this WINNING yet? Part IV. – Nowhere are those positive impacts already being felt more directly now than in the previously out-of-control 9th Circuit Court of Appeals. Long dominated by leftist nitwits who took pride in having their decisions constantly overturned by the Supreme Court, the six new judges who Trump and McConnell have succeeded in confirming to that 29-judge body have resulted in a sudden return of occasional constitutional jurisprudence to its decision-making.

That rebalancing of the 9th Circuit bore fruit on Monday when a panel of 3 of its judges rejected the overreach of yet another Obama-appointed district court judge, Jon Tigar.

When the Trump Administration announced in July it would resume enforcing the longstanding principle that no migrant from another country can apply for asylum in the U.S. if they had failed to do so in the first safe country they entered, leftist lawyers immediately filed suit in Tigar’s court to challenge the “new” policy, which was “new” only in the sense that it reversed the Obama Administration’s refusal to enforce that piece of the law.

Tigar naturally issued a nationwide injunction designed to prevent the Trump Administration from enforcing the new policy, a tactic that has worked time and time again to delay all efforts to gain some control over our southern border.  And always in the past, the 9th Circuit had been just a rubber stamp for such heinous judicial oversteps.

Not this time. This time, the three-judge panel ruled that Tigar’s order exceeded his court’s authority, and limited his injunction to apply only to Arizona and California, which lay in the purview of the 9th Circuit. That decision came down on Tuesday, and the left went berserk, with its Lawfare lawyers requesting an emergency ruling from the Supreme Court.

Thanks largely to President Trump’s two confirmed justices, the Supremes were having none of Tigar’s BS either, and on Wednesday they ruled, in a 7-2 decision, in favor of the 9th Circuit. Thus, the Trump Administration will now be able to enforce its new policy in New Mexico and Texas, where the vast majority of Central American caravans have been arriving since late last year. Pretty much all of these Central American migrants apply for asylum in the U.S. after refusing to do so in Mexico, and pretty much none of them qualify for that privilege.

[CORRECTION: The SC decision is even better than that. I had misread two different articles on this subject. The SC actually ruled that the Administration can enforce this policy IN FULL, without restrictions, and remanded the case back to Tigar’s court, where it will be be decided on the actual merits without any injunction being in effect.]

Thus we see the main reason for electing Donald Trump in 2016 bearing major fruit. Had Hillary Clinton won that election – as all the fake conservative Never Trump nitwits wanted her to do – there would be literally zero control over that border whatsoever, and no hope of achieving any ever again.

So, if you’ve been wondering why the Democrats and their fake media toadies have focused so much time and energy on demonizing Mitch McConnell in recent months, well, wonder no more. This is what happens to anyone who helps President Trump keep on WINNING for the American people, and Mitch has been WINNING, bigly.

That is all.
