Taking a Week Off

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

The Campaign Never Ends (But it does get a vacation). – It’s been more than a year since The Campaign Update had more than a single day’s interruption, and that was caused by technical issues with the website.  It’s been a heck of a year, and the next year will probably be even more amazing.  The news cycle just keeps speeding up, the issues more numerous and intense, the daily freakouts by those on the left becoming almost hourly in nature.

To be properly prepared for what’s to come, yours truly needs some time off to recharge the batteries.  So, The Campaign Update will be taking an unprecedented 10-day break.  It will return on August 20.  The Republic will probably survive its absence.

Just another day in the Campaign Never Ends, but it does get a vacation America.

That is all.

It Was Congressional Apprentice Time in the Oval Office Conference Room

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Here’s how you become President for Life in China. – In an effort to crack down on critics of President Xi Jinping, China’s government has recently gone about banning all sorts of things, including:

  • Winnie the Pooh (because some have said Xi looks like the famous cartoon character);
  • The books “Animal Farm” and “1984” for obvious reasons; and
  • The letter “N”, for reasons no one is quite sure about.

Upon seeing this news, liberals all over America had as their first thought, “hey, we could ban the letter “G” so nobody could talk about guns, and the letters “T” and “C” so nobody could ever talk about cutting taxes ever again!”  Because that’ is how the liberal mind works.  Sure wish China would quit giving these people ideas.

Speaking of liberals, NBC News reports that the housing shortage in Berkeley and other parts of Northern California has become so severe and created rent and home prices so high that liberals are now fighting with fellow liberals on how to address the issue.  The ’60s-era hippies who created the problem in the first place by insisting on “slow growth” policies are in their 70s and 80s now.  They all have their personal beds made and don’t really see a problem at all.  But the younger, Millennial-age hipsters who staff all the Silicon Valley companies want cheaper housing and lower rents, and are pushing for faster growth policies.

This all creates a virtual sitcom-worthy situation of liberals hurling epithets at one another that is always a joy to read and invariably exhibits an extraordinary lack of self-awareness.  One 78 year-old hippie says this about the younger contingent:  “I think they are a combination of dumb and venal and maybe equal parts of both.”  Now, can there be any doubt at all that this woman said this while wearing a Bernie Sanders for President t-shirt and sipping a half-caf, decaf, mocha soy latte?

Meanwhile, a spokesman for the younger contingent fires back with things like “They are the masters of hypocritical progressivism,” no doubt while wearing a Che Guevara cap while sitting in the front seat of a brand new $120,000 Porsche, the payment on which is higher than his rent, but which is a necessary status symbol in the Silicon Valley crowd.  Awesome stuff.  If Bravo weren’t staffed exclusively by liberals who lack the ability to see the hilarity in this conflict, this would make a great reality TV show.  Hey, maybe HGTV could send me and my wife out to California to become the hosts of a new show called Flip or Flop, Berkeley!

All Hope is lost. – Well, White House Communications Director Hope Hicks is lost, anyway.  The fourth occupant of the most difficult job in America became the latest to announce her resignation on Wednesday, citing the standard desire to “seek other opportunities.”  In the corporate world, this phrase invariably means the person leaving was actually forced out of his or her job.  Given all the high praise coming Ms. Hicks’s way from President Trump and Chief of Staff John Kelly, they’re the most likely suspects for having done the forcing.

The fake news media, as it does anytime anyone resigns from the White House Staff, is of course portraying the resignation of the 29 year-old communications person as “the beginning of the end for Donald Trump.”  It’s like the 6,000th time we’ve heard that since April 2015, and we can only assume we will hear it 6,000 times more before President Trump is re-elected for a second term in November 2020.

Speaking of President Trump, the guy who every fake reporter in the fake news media keeps telling us wants to silence the press once again invited the press to stay and record every second of a major meeting in the Oval Office conference room on Wednesday.  Surrounded by congressional Democrats and Republicans most interested in the gun control debate, the President spent over an hour dominating a back and forth discussion what could and could not be included in a bipartisan bill on the issue, in a scene very reminiscent of an episode of The Apprentice.

Republicans in the meeting did not appreciate being put on the spot by the President on several issues, but hey, these are the same Republicans who have not done a damn thing in 4 months since the Las Vegas massacre about getting rid of bump stocks, despite the NRA’s endorsement for doing so.  So it’s kind of hard to have much sympathy for them.

The President, as he tends to do in such settings, indicated support for things he really won’t support at the end of the day – like Dianne Feinstein’s confiscatory bill banning half the guns sold in America today – but he did put people on the spot to get something done, which was the goal of the meeting.  In doing so, he also gave the fake news media a level of access that it never had from Barack Obama or any other modern president.  But, being the liberals that they all are, it is doubtful anyone in the fake news media has the sense of self-awareness needed to recognize that reality.

Just another day in Congressional Apprentice America.

That is all.

More Dead Americans Thanks To Idiotic Liberal Policies

Today’s Campaign Update 

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

  • Liberals and fake journalists all breathed a sigh of relief yesterday afternoon, when they found out our latest terrorist wasn’t another guy named Mohammed from another Middle Eastern Arab nation.  They all thought it was going to be like an episode from “24” or some other show on network television, where the swarthy-looking terrorist is some guy with an odd name, but who hails from England or Romania or somewhere.  That relief lasted for about five minutes, as they slowly realized that Sayfullo Habibullaevic Saipov was in fact a radicalized ISIS disciple from one of those -stan countries.  Dang it!
  • So, another radical Muslim commits an act of terror in New York City, ramming a truck rented at a Home Depot in Pasaic, New Jersey into a bunch of innocent people on a bike/pedestrian path.  He screamed “Allahu Akbar” while running around the streets waving a bb pistol and a pellet pistol, and the nitwits at CNN are still confused as to what that might mean.  No surprise there.
  • Given their tradition of blaming such incidents on inanimate objects, liberals and fake journalists all over the country are this morning preparing talking points about the need to ban Home Depots.  Some of you think I’m joking.  Others of you know it’s entirely possible, maybe likely.  Certainly, they’ll want to pass new laws that prevent Home Depots from renting trucks, because, well, trucks.
  • What they won’t want to do is say anything, not one word, about the fact that this Guy With The Very Long Name from one of those -stan countries was in our country under something called the “Diversity Immigrant Program”, a program that is designed to “increase the number of immigrants from countries with low rates of U.S. immigration.”  It will come as a surprise to no one at all – not even liberals, who are always surprised about pretty much every negative impact to our society that their actions inevitably cause – that Mr. Very Long Name was issued that “Diversity Visa” in 2010, by the Barack Obama Administration.
  • Good lord.  This is the most diverse country on the face of the earth.  Do we really need a quota system in our immigration program at this point, a quota system that willy-nilly issues visas simply based on country of origin, with no thought at all on whether or not letting this person in is any kind of real benefit to our society?
  • But this is how liberals think:  “Awwww, poor Guy With The Very Long Name That I Can’t Pronounce is from one of those -stan countries – I don’t really even know which one – so we have to let him in!  It’s racist or something if we don’t, and we have, um, like, compassion or something!”  Really, that is the extent of their thought process in such matters.
  • So Mr. Very Long Name is in our country because liberals are idiots, and eight innocent actual American citizens are dead.  The liberal response to that inconvenient fact is to add a touchy-feely hashtag to their social media posts and temporarily adopt a touchy-feely avatar to their Facebook and Twitter accounts.  By engaging in that tribal behavior, they mindlessly virtue signal their solidarity with the victims, with not a single thought at all given to the fact that those victims are victims directly as a result of tribal, virtue-signaling, liberal thought and policies.
  • So today’s liberal/fake news media joint talking points will be all about banning trucks, banning Home Depot truck rentals, banning Home Depot entirely, banning bb-guns and pellet-guns and passing new laws that force every American who is not a radicalized Muslim terrorist to use whatever pronouns the Muslim terrorists prefer on any given day or face jail time for our insensitivity because it’s the insensitivity of all you old white men that’s the REAL PROBLEM HERE, DAMMIT!  (Hang on while I catch my breath.)
  • But those talking points won’t say one word about the liberal tribal behavior, their pathological need for virtue signaling, and idiotic liberal policies that result, policies which were the direct cause of the death of 8 innocent Americans on the streets of New York City.  Because that would be taking responsibility for their own idiotic actions, which is something liberals are fundamentally, constitutionally, unalterably incapable of doing.  Ever.  Because they’re sensitive and compassionate or something, and you aren’t.

Just another day in dead Americans caused by liberal policies America.

That is all.

On Jared Kushner, Whose Anonymous Sources Are We To Believe?

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

  • Anonymous sources everywhere, but never a one to believe.:  Fox News reports this morning that an anonymous source “familiar with the situation” has told their reporter that Jared Kushner did not in fact raise the idea of opening a back channel of communication with Russian officials last December, contrary to all the fake reports all over the fake news media the last few days, reports that were also based solely on anonymous sources.  The subject was, according to Fox’s anonymous source, actually broached by Russian officials, and would have resulted in a single telephone conversation regarding the Obama Administration’s atrocious, utter failure of a Syria policy, not a permanent back channel, as the NYTimes and WaPo have claimed.  So whose anonymous source is to be believed – the ones that resulted in the Weekly World News-like, sensationalist reports in the Times and Post, or the one that results in what sounds like a far more likely scenario at Fox News?  In today’s America, the lines of belief will no doubt break down largely along partisan lines.
  • Today’s Required Reading.:  Kurt Schlichter pens a fantastic piece at Townhall.com titled, “Liberals Are Shocked To Find We’re Starting To Hate Them Right Back.”  Seriously, just read it.  You’ll be glad you did.
  • That’s the way it has always been for communists in America.:  In a rare bit of real news at its site,  Politico has a report out about how tough it is for Bernie Sanders supporters these days, as it seems that his supporters are finding it darn near impossible to capture actual levers of power, even within the commie-friendly confines of the Democrat Party.  Gosh, I just feel so, so bad for these people, victims as they are of their own brand of nitwittery.
  • Still prosecuting the last war after all these years…:  Terry Frei, a sports reporter for the Denver Post, was fired within two hours of the end of the Indy 500, after he tweeted that he is “uncomfortable” that a Japanese driver had won the race on Memorial Day.  Some will moan about the Post’s cow-towing to the Gods of political correctness, but dang, man, World War II ended 72 years ago. Can’t we all just get along at long last?  Holy cow.
  • But hey, WWIII could be just around the corner, if John McCain gets his way.:  The Senator From The News Media, in an interview with the Australian Broadcasting Company, said that “[Vladimir] Putin is a bigger threat than ISIS.”  The tirelessly warmongering Senator was unfortunately not asked by the interviewer where he would place himself in that same ranking, but most informed observers would put him way up there.
  • That escalated quickly.:  When Texas Republican state representative Matt Rinaldi called ICE after he was threatened by some in a very large and loud group of pro-sanctuary city protesters who had gathered in the state capitol building while the legislature was in session, Democratic state rep. Pancho Navarez threatened to kill him.  This is what the Democrat Party of today refers to as peaceful debate of the issues.
  • Meanwhile, in the realm of winning…:  While the Democrats and the fake news media continue their tireless efforts to distract the American people from reality, the Trump Administration keeps on winning, systematically erasing huge chunks of the Obama “legacy”, such as it is.  This includes progress on building the promised wall along the southern border, where, as the DC Examiner reports, planning is well underway, contracts are being bid out, and there is, despite fake media reports to the contrary, plenty of money in the budget to start construction.

Just another day in fake news media America.

The Insane Terrorist Atrocity Response Cycle Begins Again #lovewins

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

  • The cycle is now all too familiar:  A radicalized Islamist commits an atrocity in which he murders dozens of innocent victims in a public space; first responders rush to the scene and treat the event as a law enforcement matter; even though everyone on the face of the earth recognizes the nature of the event (the fingerprints are by now ubiquitously recognizable), officials keep the name of the evil loser secret on the pretense of attempting to determine a “motive” for his actions;  snowflakes and social justice warriors all over Twitter and Facebook agree on a common avitar and hashtag so that they can pretend they are doing something effective to help, and then start shouting down and demonizing anyone who correctly identifies the nature of the atrocity; fake journalists and talking heads all over the global fake news media pretend in unison that this is something other than what we all know it is for hours on end;  but then someone leaks the name and it becomes obvious that what we all already knew is correct, that this is yet another atrocity committed on the dying Western world in the name of Islam.
  • Now that the truth is out, the demonization of anyone who has clear eyes about the nature of the enemy intensifies, not only on social media, but in the fake news media as well;  public officials begin to recite the standard talking points we’ve heard so tragically many times before:  that this poor wretched soul – who is obviously an adherent of Islam – is not Islamic at all, and that his actions – which clearly, unarguably were carried out in the name of Islam – had nothing to do with Islam at all, that in our modern world with our open borders, why, we all just have to get used to living with acts of inexplicably deranged – even though the reasons for his derangement are clear for all to see – people like this, that he is a “lone wolf” – even though ISIS is claiming credit for his radicalization and his atrocity, and we have just found out that the crazy SOB had been under surveillance of national and local authorities for months, if not years because of his known associations with ISIS and other radical Islamist groups, and nothing was done to stop him.
  • Next, as the demonization of those with clear eyes continues in the social media, comes a few days of discussion in the fake news media about what we must do to combat this “problem”.  While clear-eyed individuals like Sebastian Gorka, , General Mattis and General Kelly and others talk about the need to eradicate radical Islamists from our midst, CNN and MSNBC seek out policy luminaries like Katie Perry who talk about how we can solve the whole thing with love and open borders, #lovewins.
  • Then, after five or six days, the snowflakes and social justice warriors have their short attention spans kick in and move onto demonizing someone else over some other thing, #weknowbetterthananyoneelse, and the fake news media follows suit.  Public officials go back to doing the same ineffective things they were doing before the atrocity took place, and liberals in government return to making certain that borders remain open and no new policies that might effectively combat radical Islam are enacted.
  • And the rest of us go back to our daily lives and pray that none of our loved ones become victims when the next radicalized Islamist commits the next atrocity in the name of Islam.  Because we know the next time will inevitably come, since the snowflakes and social justice warriors and fake journalists and liberal politicians will work so hard to ensure nothing effective is ever done to prevent it.

Just another day in the utterly insane, #lovewins, open borders Western world.

That is all.
