AOC and Her Fellow Radicals Threaten to Burn the Democrat Party to the Ground

The Afternoon Campaign Update
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

As Notre Dame Cathedral burns to the ground, the Democrat Party leadership threatens to join it.  – Nancy Pelosi was featured in a puff piece interview with reliable Democrat activist Leslie Stahl on CBS’ “60 Minutes” fake news program Sunday evening.

At one point, Stahl pointed out the different groups within the House Democratic caucus. “You have these wings — AOC and her group on one side,” Stahl said.

“That’s like five people,” Pelosi smirked.

Stahl responded by correcting the Speaker, saying that the “progressive group is more than five.”

“Well, I’m progressive — I’m a progressive, yeah,” Pelosi responded.

San Fran Nan may be “progressive,” but there are varying degrees of progressivism, and hers pales in comparison to that of our Bronx heroine, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.

As the New York Post points out in the linked article, the House Democrat “Progressive” Caucus is in fact the largest single segment of the Party’s house membership, consisting of 98 members, of whom AOC is among the “most recognizable,” as the Post somewhat hilariously puts it. What an understatement.

Pelosi claims to be in full control of her collection of miscreants, grifters and radical activists, telling Stahl that “By and large, whatever orientation they came to Congress with, they know that we have to hold the center. That we have to … go down the mainstream.” When Stahl asked her if “progressives” like AOC really understand that, Pelosi nervously replied that they do.

Well, you could’ve fooled AOC, Nan. Today, she told the Yahoo! news podcast “Skullduggery” that a Biden nomination “would be going backwards”:

“That does not particularly animate [me] right now,” she said, adding that she has “a lot of issues” with a potential Biden run.

“I can understand why people would be excited by that, this idea that we can go back to the ‘good old days’ with Obama, with Obama’s vice president. There’s an emotional element to that, but I don’t want to go back. I want to go forward.”

Oh. San Fran Nan’s botox is going to explode when she reads that. After all, Creepy Uncle Joe is the Democrat Party’s great doddering hope of appealing to the “mainstream” as Pelosi likes to refer to it, which really means the center/left segment of “independent” voters. As demented as San Fran Nan is, she is still enough in touch with reality to realize that no Democrat nominee can win the presidency without tacking some moderate votes on top of the Party’s hard-left voter base.

But AOC is having none of that. Having no use for Biden and his “mainstream” nonsense, her choice should be obvious to everyone:

“I haven’t endorsed anybody, but I’m very supportive of Bernie,” she told “Skullduggery.” “I also think what Elizabeth Warren has been bringing to the table is … truly remarkable, truly remarkable and transformational.”

So, no more of that fake commie stuff from the Democrat Party for AOC – she wants to got the full commie this time, and what better way to do that than with the old Bolshevik or the fake Indian?

Notre Dame Cathedral burned right down to the ground today because firefighters in Paris have no means of containing a conflagration in a structure like that venerable landmark. It is beginning to look as if the Democrat Party “leadership” is headed for a similar disaster, given that it has no means of containing their growing legion of chaos creators exemplified by AOC and Ilhan Omar.

Couldn’t happen to a nicer bunch of people.

That is all.

The Democrat Mob is Preparing to Challenge this Election

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Well, of course he is. – Are you ready for Judge Jerry?  Well, NBC doesn’t care if you are or aren’t – you’re probably going to get him anyway.  Yes, friends, The Wrap is reporting this morning that septuagenarian Jerry Springer is working on a deal with NBCUniversal to star in a “daytime courtroom show” that could begin airing in 2019.  Because network TV just hasn’t cheapened the nation’s courtroom system quite enough already. I swear I don’t make this stuff up. Who could?

If you don’t know who Allie Beth Stuckey is yet… – Allow me to introduce her to you.  She’s made her own version of what a Democrat campaign ad would look like if a Democrat candidate were actually being honest about their beliefs and what they plan to do if elected.  It is three minutes of pure greatness:

If you didn’t get about 38 laughs out of that one, you might be brain dead.  Or you’re a Democrat.

Wait, is this a trick question? – How old does a correspondent for CBS’s “60 Minutes” have to be in order to be described as “approaching retirement age?” Let’s go back through a little history:

Mike Wallace worked there until he was well into his late ’80s.

Harry Reasoner did the same.

Leslie Stahl has been at the network since I was a sophomore in high school. Richard Nixon was president when I was a sophomore in high school.

Dan Rather was there until he had be-clowned himself so many times that not even CBS could pretend he as a real “journalist” anymore.

Morley Safer appeared to have passed away in place about 8 years before he was finally removed from the show’s lineup, but nobody noticed.

I bring all this up because the New York Post has a report this morning about the chaos that is reigning at network TV’s longest-running fake news program.  Seems the geriatric natives are getting a little restless over the prospect of having to work for their likely new boss, who will take over after former boss Jeff Fager had to quit over allegations of – you guessed it – sexual abuse and harassment.

The new likely boss, Susan Zirinsky, is a veritable spring chicken in “60 Minutes” world at just age 66. She’s been the boss over at the network’s “48 Hours” program for years, and it seems she must have developed quite the reputation over there, and the veteran “60 Minutes” bunch wants no part of working for her.

Hilariously, one of the Post’s inside sources “noted that at least one was ‘approaching retirement age’ and might have less to lose by threatening resignation.”  That no doubt has all the correspondents at “60 Minutes” looking at one another this morning and saying “wait – there’s a retirement age?”

Speaking of really old reporters who never seem to retire… – I missed this one on Monday, but Carl Bernstein, the former Washington Post reporter who hasn’t done anything worth noting since Watergate, said this in an appearance on CNN (because CNN is the only outlet fake enough to have him on anymore) on Sunday:

“I talked to people … in touch with the White House on Friday who believe that, if the congressional midterms are very close and the Democrats were to win by five or seven seats, that Trump is already talking about how to throw legal challenges into the courts, sow confusion, declare a victory actually, and say that the election’s been illegitimate.”

First, I laughed out loud at how he described his “sources” here – as “people…in touch with the White House.”  What that means is that, if he actually talked to anyone about this, which is doubtful, he has to describe them in this way because his “sources” are not in the White House and are so far removed from it that he can’t describe them even as “insiders” or “people with direct knowledge” of what he’s talking about.  In fact, this could literally describe anyone who has ever made a phone call to someone who works at the White House and left a voice mail. Think about it.

Anyway, the likely truth here is that Bernstein didn’t really talk to anyone other than his handlers within the Democrat Party who wanted him to put this nonsense out into the public domain. Bernstein is just the first of what will no doubt become many Democrat media shills spreading this rumor of the White House preparing to challenge the election as we approach November 6.

Why? Because this is exactly what the Democrats are planning to do should they fail to win a majority in the House of Representatives. This is the classic Saul Alinsky “projection” tactic, in which you accuse your opposition of doing exactly what you are doing or, in this case, plan to do.

This is exactly the same as in 2016, when, in the weeks leading up to the election, Democrats and their media shills berated Donald Trump for making a statement indicating that he might challenge the election if it appeared as if massive voter fraud had taken place.  Remember how they all told us day after day that even saying such a thing was terribly unpatriotic, even un-American? But then Trump won, and the Democrats have spent the last 23 months refusing to accept the election’s results.

Make no mistake about it: This is exactly what the Democrats plan to do again if they fall a few seats short of securing a majority in the House on Election Day, which I’ve been telling you for months is exactly what is going to happen. Thus, to lay the groundwork for that operation, they have media shills like Bernstein talking up the notion that this is in fact the Republican plan.

Expect to see Bernstein’s fellow Democrat media shills repeating this notion between now and Election Day. If the Democrats didn’t have “projection,” they’d have pretty much nothing at all.

About that “migrant caravan”, the latest estimate is that it has now swelled to 14,000.  It has added 12,000 individuals since it entered Mexico, yet our fake news media continues to promote the lie that it is made up mainly of Hondurans.  So, you’re supposed to believe that the countryside of southern Mexico is just filled to the gills with Honduran nationals.  My goodness.

Late Tuesday, President Trump issued this tweet:

Yes, folks, that is America’s Biggest Mistake, Barack Hussein Obama, in 2005 talking about how strongly he felt about the need to control America’s southern border and our right as a country to self-determine who and how many foreign-born individuals will be allowed to come join us here.  That of course was before he stumbled into the presidency and the entire Democrat Party became nothing more than a Saul Alinsky crisis operation funded by George Soros.

On Tuesday, both President Trump and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo continued to make it crystal clear that this invading army of mainly military-aged males from Mexico and points south will not be allowed to cross into the United States.  The Democrats think this all helps them win the votes of suburban white women, which is the motivation behind the entire crisis operation.  The Republicans are betting that suburban white women don’t want their country invaded anymore than other ordinary Americans.

We’ll get to see who is right in 13 days.  Stay tuned.

That is all.

The Democrat Party is a Mob, Nothing More

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

This is just how the fake news media op…ok, well, as I was saying…yes, of course but…oh, nevermind. – In a 26 minute interview on 60 Minutes last night, fake journalist Leslie Stahl interrupted the President of the United States of America, Donald Trump, 64 times.  In an interview with Barack Obama on 60 Minutes several years ago, he was interrupted 4 times.

But there is no bias at CBS News.  Just ask them, they’ll tell you.  And when you start to object, they’ll interrupt you.

Another Democrat-run city, another abject failure by law enforcement. – When the history books are written about why the United States descended into chaos, honest historians will write their opening chapters about the failure of law enforcement officials to do their jobs in Democrat-run cities around the country.  Chapter 1 would have to be about Berkeley, California, but chapter 2 would have to be centered on Portland, Oregon.

There on Saturday, a peaceful demonstration by the right-wing group called “Patriots Prayer” was set upon by a bunch of black-clad Antifa rioters, and a huge melee ensued on the downtown streets of the city.  Police stood by and watched for a few minutes as the Antifa thugs armed with bear spray and batons went after it with the Patriots Prayer people before finally jumping in to break up the city’s latest riot.

Get this: NO ARRESTS WERE MADE.  None.  Not one.  No left-wingers, no right-wingers, nobody went to jail.

This event comes just days after Antifa thugs were filmed being left unmolested by the city police as they harassed and assaulted pedestrians and car drivers in one downtown neighborhood of the city.  After that disgusting incident, Democrat Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler, who ironically doubles as the city’s “Police Commissioner,” said that “motorists should feel completely safe coming into downtown Portland.”  No word if he also thinks people should feel perfectly safe in pits of rattlesnakes, but it seems likely.

On Saturday, the Patriots Prayer group had a lawful permit to conducted its demonstration.  As has become typical of such confrontations in Democrat-run cities around the country, the Antifa group did not.  But again, the police just stood by and watched as the Antifa thugs assembled and started their assault, and then made no arrests.  None.

The Democrat party is a mob.  Nothing more.

Because the demonization of white men was becoming so last year… – Never let it be said that The Campaign Update fails to keep you abreast of the latest political correctness news.  Staying “woke” is not easy these days, since the whims of social justice warriors, campus snowflakes and the university professors who brainwash them all on a daily basis can shift on a dime, but we do our best.

Here’s the latest from the “woke” front:

Out:  White men are the problem with, like, you know, everything and stuff.

In:  White women are so all, like, the problem with all the, you know, stuff or something that, like, white men aren’t causing, you know?  Seriously?

Yes, all you white guys out there, you’re getting a bit of a break while all the SJWs and snowflakes and sharia law-supporting “Women’s Marchers” go after your WAGs (that is “wives and girlfriends” in wokespeak).  Kyle Smith, writing at the National Review, does a really good job of giving us some of the highlights of the new movement to demonize white women today:

Today, white women are being lumped together into a giant bloc subject to absurdly broad stereotyping and vitriolic condemnation. They’re being told to step back and know their place by writers in the New York Times (“white women benefit from patriarchy by trading on their whiteness to monopolize resources for mutual gain”), The New Yorker (“despite the enduring legacy of testimony by black women, white women have often played the protagonists in the history of sexual violence, and black women have been relegated to the supporting cast”) and NBC News (“white women who voted for Trump . . . clearly have no issue with the president’s openly misogynistic behavior, his demeaning of female reporters and his mocking of [Christine Blasey] Ford”).

A writer for The Root castigated Taylor Swift because “like some white women, she uses her privilege to not be involved until she’s directly affected.” Talia Lavin, the New Yorker fact-checker who resigned in June after erroneously suggesting that an ICE agent (who turned out to be a combat-wounded Marine Corps veteran) had a Nazi tattoo, continues to contribute to The New Yorker and tells her 51,000 Twitter followers, “patriarchy won’t protect you no matter how hard white women fight for it.” “White women use strategic tears to silence women of colour,” ran a headline in the Guardian. On the basis of five phone calls, plus the story of what happened to Emmett Till in 1955, Rolling Stone published an essay entitled, “Why White Women Keep Calling the Police on Black People,” blaming them for “a new 21st century version of Jim Crow.” 

It goes on and on, and is well worth your time to click over and read in full, which is a rare thing at the National Review these days.

So all you white guys out there who have been getting blamed for literally everything from global warming to the heartbreak of psoriasis to the Cowboys being such a lousy football team for the past 20 years (hey, Jerry Jones is a white guy, after all), sit back, have a beer and let your lawn grow as your wives, girlfriends and daughters have their reputations slandered by our fake news media for awhile.  But don’t get too complacent – all the SJWs and snowflakes will be coming back sooner or later to blame you for all their problems, because, well, they have to blame someone other than themselves, because the alternative would be taking responsibility for their own actions.

You know that isn’t in the cards.

[Update] The President tweeted this shortly after Today’s Campaign Update went live:

As I’ve repeatedly noted, President Trump doesn’t just tweet this stuff out for no reason.  We should all note that he sees all the GOP internal polling – and probably much of the Democrat internal polling – coming in from all over the country, so he knows how voter attitudes are shifting in the wake of the Kavanaugh smear.

It’s also important to note that it generally takes 10 days to 2 weeks for shifts due to major events like the Kavanaugh smear to fully show up in the polling data, so we will start seeing its full impact this week.  If, as the President says, something big is happening, even the fake polls from places like ABC and CNN will start showing it soon.

WATCH.

That is all.
