James Comey Reaches Peak Teen Drama Queen

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Hey, lookey here – the 302 apparently exists after all! – Waiting until the very last possible moment, Robert Mueller and his gang of Clinton/Obama thugs finally, at long last, produced a document purporting to be the orginal FBI 302 form from the FBI’s entrapment interview with General Mike Flynn. The production of the key document comes just hours before today’s scheduled sentencing hearing, and the document is heavily redacted. Because of course it is.

Les is no more.:  Wait – what’s this? A big media company actually did the right thing in a massive sexual harassment scandal? This must be a work of fiction, right? No? It’s real? Go figure.

Yes, friends, this would never happen at NBC, MSNBC or CNN, but over at CBS Corp., the people in charge decided on Monday to terminate former CEO Les Moonves for cause in the midst of a massive sexual abuse scandal, denying him the $122 million severance package he would have otherwise been entitled to receive. That’s a big deal, one which no doubt sent waves of fear across senior management teams at big media companies everywhere.

Cool.

Teenage Drama Queen Update: Former FBI Director and current Teenage Drama Queen James Comey exited his second tense day of behind-closed-doors testimony on Capitol Hill and had this to say about the tattered reputation of the agency he “led” for several years:

“Director Comey, the FBI’s reputation has taken a big hit over the last year. Do you share any of the responsibility for that?” the [Fox News] reporter asked.

“No. The FBI’s reputation has taken a big hit because the President of the United States, with his acolytes, has lied about it constantly and, in the face of those lies, a whole lot of good people who watch your network believe that nonsense. That’s a tragedy.”

Congressman Mark Meadows, who questioned Comey in Monday’s hearing, responded very succinctly:

Exactly.  Let’s review just some of the reasons why the FBI’s reputation has taken hits in recent years:

  • Comey himself led a sham investigation into Hillary Clinton’s illegal email server;
  • Comey himself led an effort to illegally spy on the Trump presidential campaign and transition team;
  • The FBI revealed to be fully aware of and actively surveiling a series of Islamic terrorists and school shooters;
  • The utter failure of the FBI to conduct anything remotely resembling a competent investigation of the worst mass shooting in American history in Las Vegas;
  • The revelation of the texts of Super Duper Agent Peter Strzok and his mistress Lisa Page;
  • The FBI’s active support of the Gestapo tactics deployed by Special Counsel Robert Mueller;
  • The FBI’s resolute refusal to respond to 2 years of legal document requests issued by an array of congressional committees;
  • The FBI’s habit of “redacting” key passages from key documents solely to cover-up wrongdoing by FBI officials;
  • The repeated commissions of outright perjury before congressional committees by Comey, Andrew McCabe, Strzok and other FBI officials;
  • The firing and forced resignations of a broad array of senior FBI personnel over the past year, including McCabe, Strzok, James Baker and many others.

This list could honestly go on and on, but the point is clear: The reason the FBI’s former reputation as the nation’s premier law-enforcement agency is in tatters today is directly attributable to the Obama-era decision by Comey and his leadership team to stop enforcing the law on anyone associated with the Clintons or the Obamas.  Under Comey, and Robert Mueller before him, the FBI was turned into nothing more than the aggressive attack dog for the Deep State, and that is sadly the state in which it remains today.

White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders summed the day up perfectly.:

Couldn’t have said it better myself.

Hey, let’s go get our exercise in and play a game of pot!:

Ocasio Cortez Watch:

Would’ve been more effective if I’d said “whose” instead of “who’s”, but there are no do-overs on Twitter.

Deep thoughts on free speech, by Ted Lieu…:

Ocasio Cortez Watch, Part II: Alexandria needs a break. –  Yes, friends, our intrepid heroine feels the need to take a break for “self care”, even before the session starts.  And guess what? She doesn’t even know what “self care” means.  I swear I don’t make this stuff up:

*sigh*

Exactly What is the “Resistance” Resisting?

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Vegas oddsmakers have set the over/under on its survival at 13-1/2 days. –  Donald Trump’s star – which has been destroyed by nutjob Democrats twice since 2016, has been restored once again on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.  Workers reset the star on Saturday in the face of a vote by the West Hollywood City Council in early August to have the star permanently removed.

The Walk of Fame, however, is administered by the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce, whose President, Leron Gubler, had this to say about the matter: “Any star, which is vandalized or destroyed, no matter which honoree it belongs to will be replaced by the Hollywood Historic Trust, a non-profit, non-partisan group. The Hollywood Walk of Fame is a historic landmark which celebrates the professional contributions of the inductees. The stars, once installed, are considered part of the historic fabric of the Walk.”

Those are great sentiments, but Hollywood is filled to capacity with nutjobs and malcontents who have been programmed by the Democrat Party and our fake news media to believe it is their right to do literally anything they want to anything or anyone favorable to Donald Trump.  So, unless the Chamber of Commerce is going to foot the bill for round-the-clock security, it is a very safe bet that this latest Trump star will be destroyed very soon by some entitled Hillary Clinton voter wielding an axe or a spade.

For his part, Mr. Gubler, for taking this honorable action, can now expect to be bullied off of Twitter, Facebook or any other social media platform he currently inhabits by a vicious mob of howling Democrats. Because this is what they do and who they are.

No worries, CBS, Matt Lauer and Charlie Rose are available to step in. – After no fewer than six more women came out of hiding to accuse him of sexual abuse and discrimination in the work place, CBS CEO Les Moonves finally gave up the ghost and took his 8-figure severance package to exit stage left (because he’s a Democrat after all, and left is all he knows).

Moonves is charged with all manner of sex abuse, up to and including outright rape, and if he didn’t live out in Hollywood he’d be looking a tons of jail time.  But hey, this is just normal behavior in the TV/film community, so we can expect charges for any crime that took place in the LA area to be dropped by the same LA District Attorney’s office that recently declined to prosecute Kevin Spacey and Steven Seagal.  These people protect their own, and good ol’ Les is almost as big a muckety-muck as Harvey Weinstein.

Exactly what is it they’re “resisting” again?  I’m so confused. – As Today’s Campaign Update was being compiled this morning, President Donald Trump went on one of his early morning tweet-fests.  Several of the tweets make you wonder exactly what it is that the Democrat/Media “resistance” is resisting, other than is bombastic and unconventional management style.  Here are some examples:

Think about that first one for a second, because it’s extraordinary.  We had quarters during the Reagan and Clinton years during which the GDP growth rate exceeded 6 percent, yet the rate of unemployment during those quarters was higher than that.  Even during those economic boom times, the U.S. economy did not produce jobs at the rate we are seeing today.

The second tweet is speculative – the economy was growing during the final Obama years, although at a much slower rate than today – but the point about the importance of the Trump regulation and tax cuts is undeniably true.  Barack Obama was out there on Friday laughably trying to take credit for this current boom, but the biggest tragedy of his administration is that this boom could have taken place on his watch had he not had is regulators working so feverishly to prevent it from happening.  But Obama was more interested in consolidating power within the federal government than in freeing up the U.S. economy, so his legacy will forever be one of sluggish economic growth thanks to his choking regulatory policies.  Nothing to be done about that now, Barry.

But back to the Trump economic boom:  When you combine the facts mentioned in this morning’s tweets with record-low unemployment rates for Hispanics, record-low unemployment rates for African Americans, record-high employment for women, rising wage increases, the return of hundreds of thousands of blue-collar jobs to our country at a pace no one could have possibly imagined, and on and on and on, you do have to wonder exactly what is being “resisted” here, other than style.

All of which explains why that “anonymous” New York Times op/ed focused its whining complaints about the President on matters of style, not substance.  Because when you focus on substance, the first two years of Donald Trump have undeniably been the most successful first two years of any president in modern times, and it really isn’t close.

Just another day in Trump Derangement Syndrome America.

That is all.

Chicago is a War Zone – No News There

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Note to CBS:  When you have to publicly declare that your network isn’t broken, your network is broken. – CBS entertainment division head Kelly Kahl led a press event on Sunday and, doing his best Baghadad Bob impression in the wake of the network’s latest major sex abuse scandal, declared there’s nothing to see here, all is well.  No one believed him.

Yes, Councilman, the people of Santa Barbara do lack common sense.  They elected you, after all. – Over at Powerline, Steven Heyward has a hilarious quick read about a member of the Santa Barbara city council (thus obviously a Democrat) who got caught with his rhetorical pants down a couple of weeks ago.  Go read it – you’ll be glad you did.

If Chicago had a Republican mayor, CNN would move its entire operation there and report on nothing but all the killing going on. – As it is, with Democrat thug Rahm Emanuel firmly ensconced in the Mayor’s office, and the brain-dead voters of Chicago too dimwitted to vote him out, CNN can barely be bothered to even notice the fact that no fewer than 63 shootings took place in the Windy City over this past weekend.  Thus far, at least 10 of the victims are dead.  And nobody – literally nobody – in our fake national news media cares.  Doesn’t fit the approved narrative, after all.

As if to emphasize the utter cluelessness and ineffectiveness of the city’s leadership, Superintendent Eddie Johnson attempted to deflect all the blame onto inanimate objects, because of course he did:

“I think some of our more challenging, communities, it’s just imperative that police and the community work together to reduce this gun violence.  We just have too many guns on the streets of Chicago.”

Mind you, Chicago – like the other Democrat-led, extreme high crime cities in our country – has some of the most restrictive gun control laws in the nation.  The standard answer for any Democrat politician when faced with the abject failure of the policies he or she has favored is of course to simply double-down on more failure.  So, don’t look at the gangs behind the curtain who commit all the violence, or the Democrat welfare state-created culture of broken families and dependency that made the gangs possible in the first place, look at this shiny object over here that you can’t even legally purchase in this city.  That’s the problem.

Don’t kid yourselves otherwise:  These politicians don’t really want to solve the problem, because so many of them are in fact on the take from the gangs committing almost all the killings.  Chicago today is little different from the Chicago of the Prohibition era, with crime gangs having been allowed by ineffective policing to become an ingrained part of the local culture and ultimately owning so much of City Hall that they effectively become a major part of the city’s government.

The Chicago “swamp” is no different than the Swamp in Washington, DC:  You have this embeded, incestuous culture of corruption that ensnares almost everyone that comes into contact with it and becomes a self-sustaining entity.

As I type this piece, there’s a Democrat state representative from Illinois named La Shawn Ford on my television, telling Fox News that Chicago is in a state of emergency, and urging President Trump to send in the National Guard to police some of the neighborhoods in the city.  So at least one Democrat politician in Chicago actually gives a damn, which is nice to know.

But Mr. Ford is fighting a losing battle there, since Mayor Emanuel has declared his city to be a “Trump-free zone,” and will no doubt vehemently oppose accepting any help from the federal government that he can’t control.  Because for corrupt politicians, control is everything.  Just like the corrupt Chicago politicians of the 1920s, you can’t have the feds coming into your city and giving orders.  You can’t just accept federal help because that help would inevitably lead to scrutiny from investigators and auditors and hey, it was the auditors, not Elliott Ness and his Untouchables, who finally managed to put Al Capone in the federal pen.

As of today, August 8, there have been 1,700 shootings in the City of Chicago in 2018.  1,700 Americans wounded or killed, most by the gangs who have become a de facto part of the corrupt city government.

Yes, the city’s in a state of emergency.  Yes, the residents of these poverty-ridden neighborhoods where almost all of the shootings take place desperately need the help of the national government since their local government cares so little about them.

But it will be a cold day in hell before Chicago’s elected leaders allow that to happen.  Don’t kid yourselves otherwise.  With literally zero pressure from the national news media, they have no incentive at all to change.

Just another day in Democrats are destroying Chicago and nobody cares America.

That is all.
