Why The Media Falls for Obvious Hoaxes: Because, Like Fox Mulder, They Want to Believe

Today’s Campaign Update, Part II
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Jussie, we hardly knew ye. – And just like that, Jussie Smollett’s obvious hoax, which was promoted by the entirety of your fake news media and a raft of craven Democrat politicians for two solid weeks because it fit their anti-Trump narrative, came to a crashing end. In case you missed it, news came down last night that Chicago Police had charged the neurotic actor with felony disorderly conduct and filing a false report. And thus, yet another media-promoted hoax – which was an obvious hoax from its first fake reports – crashes and burns with no one in the media bothering to apologize for their own conduct.

Some have speculated over the past few days about why it is that our fake news media keeps falling for this kind of transparent hoax, ruminating over all sorts of complex explanations.  But the reality is really quite simple: The overwhelmingly naive, biased, rage-filled leftist “journalists” who infest the nation’s newsrooms quite simply want to believe anything that reflects negatively on President Donald Trump and/or his supporters.

Think of these people as a bunch of Fox Mulders from the old X-Files series, only not quite. Despite Mulder’s constant refrain of “I want to believe,” his character did consistently employ a healthy dose of skepticism in his investigations of “paranormal” activities, many of which ended up being blatant hoaxes. So, despite his desire to “believe” in the story line laid out before him, his healthy skepticism meant he had nothing to apologize for at the end of each episode.

Contrast that to the on-air leftwing activists at CNN and MSNBC, and the anti-Trump fanatics who pose as “editors” and “reporters” at the New York Times and Washington Post, not to mention disgraceful digital sites like the Daily Beast and the Huffington Post. Every time some obvious hoax that would cast negative light on the President or someone associated with him arises, some combination of these media outlets invariably become the ring-leaders of the fake media mob.

Think about it: All of these media outlets still desperately cling to the “Russia Collusion” fantasy, despite public knowledge that the entire thing was concocted by the Hillary Clinton campaign, despite the public knowledge that it is based entirely on a fake “Dossier” compiled by foreign agents who were on the Clinton/DNC payroll, despite the failure of multiple congressional committees and a 21-month-long Special Counsel investigation to turn up a shred of evidence implicating the President in any wrongdoing.

Why is that? Because they want to believe. The hoax fits their preferred narrative, after all. Why be skeptical? Why employ some modicum of journalistic standards, when your personal bias and greatest longings in life have been confirmed?

These and other fake media outlets still treat Christine Blasey Ford as some sort of heroic angel despite the reality that pretty much everything she testified to against Brett Kavanaugh has been proven to have been false. But hey, why let facts get in the way of a good anti-Trump narrative? They want to believe.

These same fake media outlets spent two weeks in January smearing a bunch of Catholic school kids for no real reason other than a few of them were wearing MAGA caps and one of them was – gasp! – smiling! Their smearing of these children was based entirely on an obviously-edited video, even though the full video clearly demonstrated the kids were the ones who had been assaulted and had done nothing wrong.  But the edited version fit the Democrat/media narrative about anyone who supports the President, so they all went with that instead. On Tuesday, the cretins at the Washington Post got named in a $250 million libel suit for those efforts. Hopefully more such filings will follow.

There have been at least two dozen times over the past two years in which either the Times or the Post published stories based solely on “anonymous sources” making some wild claim about either President Trump or Donald, Jr. or someone in the Administration, stories that immediately created an online feeding frenzy from all the other fake media outlets, and stories that within 24-48 hours were proven to be utterly and laughably fake.  Hoaxes. Obvious hoaxes from the start, to anyone with a modicum of skepticism.

But the media wanted to believe those stories and repeated them in a frenzy without the slightest analysis.

The Smollett case stank to high heaven from the very first report. We were asked to believe that, in heavily-liberal Chicago, on a night when the temperature was well below zero, there were these “white supremacist” guys roaming around wearing MAGA caps, looking for some no-account actor to assault. We were asked to believe that these MAGA white guys shouted “this is Trump country” and various racial slurs during their assault, and even had a rope handy to wrap around Smollett’s neck.

Even better, we were asked to believe that Smollett’s Subway sandwich escaped unharmed during the assault, and that Smollett sat around for 45 minutes wearing the rope while he ate said sandwich, and still had it around his neck when the police arrived. Even better than that, we were supposed to believe these MAGA-cap white supremacists had splattered Smollett with bleach even though the temperature was about 30 degrees below the point at which bleach freezes.

An obvious hoax.  A hoax so transparent that Fox Mulder wouldn’t even have wanted to believe it. But the entirety of our fake news media and leadership of the Democrat Party sure as hell did. They all fell for it hook, line and sinker, going out of their way to deploy racially-charged language in their statements and tweets in which they referred to the “victim” in glowing terms.

They wanted to believe because it fit their preferred narrative.

Now that the media’s hero has been revealed as a complete fraud and will go to trail for his crimes, the media will no doubt support his almost-certain efforts to claim that he is actually the real victim here: A victim of depression, a victim of bi-polar disorder, a victim of some sort of mental or emotional malady that he and his lawyers hope will get him sentenced to rehab rather than jail time. And once whatever sentence he receives has been completed, Smollett will no doubt be paid millions by some book publisher and millions more for the movie rights to his “story”, and the fake media will award its hero with gobs of free airtime and print space to promote whatever he’s hawking.

Because that’s what our fake reporters and editors and talking heads do with their favored frauds. They want to believe, and one way or another, they will.

It really is that simple. No further analysis required.

That is all.

What to Expect as the Mueller Witch Hunt Comes to a Blessed End

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

Man, no one could have seen this coming. Oh, wait…. – Way back in September, the Campaign Update informed its loyal readers (thanks to all of you) that the signs were obvious that Gestapo Chief…er, “Special Counsel” Robert Mueller was systematically going about the process of wrapping things up. We speculated at the time that it would likely take several months for Mueller to complete the process, given that he he likely still had more ham sandwich indictments to pursue, was still at the time hoping to personally interview President Donald Trump, and would want to give his team of loyal Clinton/Obama hacks plenty of time to secure other employment.

Well, it turns out that that process is going to end up taking right at six months, at least if all the fake news media reports out there this morning are to be believed. Yes, it’s your basic crap shoot, given that the first outlet to report the story was CNN, and given that CNN’s report is based only on “people familiar with the plans,” but it seems likely that this is the rare occasion that the fake news network is getting something right.

There are several reasons that this timing would make sense:

First, as mentioned above, it has been obvious for six months that Mueller has been working on wrapping things up, despite all the fake media reporting and Democrat wishful thinking to the contrary;

Second, Tuesday’s announcement that oily Rod Rosenstein would be leaving the DOJ in early-to-mid-March means that Mueller’s days are certainly numbered in any event;

Third, the assumption of office on Tuesday by William Barr, President Trump’s first real Attorney General who isn’t stupidly and needlessly recused from a damn thing means that there is a new sheriff in town looking over Mueller’s corrupt shoulder, and he most likely doesn’t much care for what he’s seeing.

So, Mueller is no doubt feverishly working to finish up whatever “report” he’s been working on and will in all likelihood send it over to Mr. Barr next week, if not sooner.

When that happens, Barr is under no obligation whatsoever to issue any summary of the report, or indeed make a single word from Mueller’s work public. During his confirmation hearing, Barr did semi-commit to making some sort of “summary of findings” public, but he has no legal obligation to do so, and that can take any form he deems appropriate. It is his job and his job alone to make that decision.

Regardless of what Barr decides to do with Mueller’s “report,” we should expect to see a series of utterly false reports published by the Usual Suspects in the fake news media – can you say New York Times and Washington Post and CNN and MSNBC? – containing all manner of wild allegations targeting President Trump, based purely on anonymous sources. Because that is what our fake news media does.

We can also expect Democrats in congress and/or running for president to make their own wild claims, because that is what they do, too. They’re all reciting from the same narrative the media is using, after all.

But in the end, Mueller will still be holding a big, smelly bag of nothing where President Trump is concerned. There is no “Russia collusion” and there never was.

The best news about Mueller wrapping his nonsense up is that DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz will now be free to issue his own report on his two-year investigation into the rampant abuse of the FISA process committed by the Deep State cabal that operated within the DOJ and FBI throughout 2016 and much of 2017. Horowitz has been delaying his own report, waiting on Mueller to finish.

Now that we have a real attorney general governing this process instead of Rosenstein, perhaps Mr. Horowitz will be free to issue his real findings this time, and not the watered-down slop that characterized his report last year on the Clinton email scandal.

Wouldn’t that be a welcome change?  We can only hope.

Words alone cannot describe the pure awesomeness of this Twitter meme… – you just have to watch it for yourself. (Warning – it’s your basic PG-13 video):

Trump is a Master of the Twitter Art Form

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

Which “indigenous” people would those be, Senator? – Kirsten Gillibrand, who actually is running for president in 2020 even though pretty much no one but the fawning press appears to be aware of it, agreed with a leftist activist yesterday that a border wall is “absurd” because it “cuts off so many indigenous people.”

Which “indigenous” people would those be, I wonder? It certainly wouldn’t be the tens of thousands of mostly-male, military-age “asylum seekers” from Central and South America who now form the great preponderance of those illegally crossing our border with Mexico. Nor would it be most Mexican citizens, the vast majority of whom have zero ancestral claim of being a “native” of Texas, or any other southern state, although there are Mexican citizens who appear to have legitimate claims to ancestral lands in the U.S. today.

Could the Senator have been talking about the Karankawa people, a band of rather tall early Americans who inhabited the southern Texas gulf coast when the Spaniards first arrived in the 16th century? Probably not, given that these folks are widely believed to now be extinct.

To be fair, Gillibrand might possibly have been referring to the Tohono O’odham, who claim to have “resided in what is now southern and central Arizona and northern Mexico since time immemorial.” That claim may or may not be true, because there are no real records that would prove it, but it has been formally recognized by the U.S. government, which recognizes a “nation” that straddles 62 miles of the border with Mexico in Pima County, AZ. Maybe that’s who Gillibrand was talking about.

Or maybe, just maybe, she doesn’t have the slightest clue who she’s talking about, and she was simply reciting a talking point that had been written by someone else, a politically-correct platitude designed to show sympathy with some group of people to whom she hopes to appeal with her pandering. Yeah, that’s the odds-on favorite, since that’s what Democrat politicians do for a living.

*sigh*

I was going to write about other stuff, but this just happened while I was compiling this piece:

So much truth in that little 280 character message. And so much greatness.  Never stop tweeting, Mr. President.  Please never stop.

In all seriousness, I used to cringe at many of President Trump’s tweets. Some were unseemly, beneath the office of the presidency, I’d think, because my frame of reference has always been what would my political hero, Ronald Reagan, do, and he’d never do that. I mean, for God’s sake, at least have someone proofread the damn things so nothing’s misspelled, right? I’ve never taken a poll, but I’d imagine millions of fellow conservative thinkers in this country felt the same way for the same reason.

But at some point in early 2016 I realized that, as much as some of these little messages bugged me, they absolutely drive leftists and people in the fake news media nuts. Even better, they strike like Mike Tyson blows on the tiny brains of the whole #NeverTrump contingent, as all the Bill Kristols and David French go apoplectic over every omitted comma.

The reality is that Twitter remains the President’s most effective outlet for communicating over the heads of the fake news media. And even though they are by necessity brief, most of them convey humor and a variety of distinct thought processes.

The message above is hilarious, at least if you aren’t a fake journalist, mindless progressive or #NeverTrump nitwit. But think about the thoughts it conveys.

First, there are several shots at the fake news media, and its constant attacks on the President. The press has “never been more dishonest,” “no basis in fact,” “never even call…for verification.” Think about why these particular thoughts are at the top of Mr. Trump’s mind this morning. Might it be the fact that Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas chose yesterday to call for the Court to reconsider the current construct of libel laws as they apply to public figures, specifically its 1964 ruling in New York Times v. Sullivan that made it virtually impossible for public figures to prove libel against a media outlet?

Yeah, it might be that.

Then there’s “Sadly, I kept many of them in business.” Which is unquestionably true. There are two reasons why, for example, both CNN and MSNBC have become little other than 24-hour Trump-bashing garbage receptacles: 1) because the fake journalists who work there have been given complete license to express their personal biases in every report they file, and 2) because Trump drives ratings. Before Trump came along, MSNBC was a pathetic also-ran in the nightly cable news ratings race. Now there are days when that channel actually challenges Fox News for the most viewers in certain times slots.

And finally, this magnificent tweet ends with the hilarious troll: “In six years, they all go BUST!” I could imagine heads exploding not only at the CNN and MSNBC headquarters, but in all the Democrat campaign offices as well. That seven-word sentence conveys not only the President’s knowledge that the fake media outlets rely on attacking him to drive ratings and readership, but also his confidence that the two-dozen or so Democrats who are lining up to run against him in 2020 are competing for the honor of being the next Democrat loooooooooooser.

Basically, when analyzing Trump’s tweets, we should act like we are on a visit to the Museum of Modern Art, which I love. That tweet – and so many of his others – is a work of art, if you just take a moment to analyze it and appreciate its beauty. Someone should transfer it to canvas, frame it, and hang it in a major gallery, alongside about 10,000 other of this President’s Twitter masterpieces.

Here’s to another 6 years of fun!

That is all.

The Fake News Enemies of the People Promote Our Constant State of Outrage

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

These particular white supremacists don’t appear to fit the profile. – If you’ve been keeping up with the whole Jussie Smollett hoax, you’ll know that the cat finally rushed out of the bag on Friday, when Chicago police released a photo of the two “attackers” who Smollett had described as being white supremacists wearing MAGA caps and screaming “this is Trump country!” while they assaulted him. Here’s the photo of the “white supremacists”:

Oh.

Turns out these are two brothers from Nigeria who are now confirming to police what some of us have known all along: That the entire episode is a hoax schemed up by an incredibly insecure person to smear President Donald Trump and everyone who supports him.

It’s important to remember that pretty much everyone in our fake news media spent an entire week participating in and perpetuating the hoax, just as they participated in and perpetuated the smearing of the Covington Catholic School kids a couple of weeks earlier. If you want to understand why so many Americans spend their lives in a near-constant state of outrage, look no further than the talking head on your television screen or editorial board of your local newspaper.

CBS news is perhaps the most guilty of participating in this brand of outrage fake journalism this week, dedicating its “60 Minutes” program to airing a puff piece fake interview with disgraced ex-FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe in yet another effort to revive the rotting corpse of the media/Democrat “Russia Collusion” fantasy play. It is an absolute disgrace to the journalistic profession – whose own corpse is getting pretty smelly at this point – that a major media outlet would grant so much airtime to the promotion of a book that is little more than a 300-page smear of a duly-elected President of the United States.

Oh, wait, McCabe’s book is more than that, isn’t it? It is actually a 300-page outlining of a coup d’etat attempt that was organized and managed by a cabal of Obama holdovers at the FBI and DOJ. It is an outright admission of high treason, a plan to overturn the result of a national election. In a sane world, Mr. McCabe wouldn’t be on national TV being interviewed by the terminally smarmy Scott Pelley, he’d be sitting at the defendant’s table at a trial before a jury of 12 of his peers.

And we can’t blame the media alone for our state of perpetual outrage: They only do it in their unending efforts to support and provide cover for the Democrat Party, whose entire model for “success” relies on the Saul Alinsky/George Soros tactic of pitting one class of people against another.

In the latest of a million examples of this reality, Heather Nauert withdrew her name from consideration to become our country’s new ambassador to the United Nations late last week due to the constant assaults on her reputation and family from the Democrats and the fake news media. Her biggest crime? She apparently employed an illegal alien as a maid and paid her in cash.

Yes, friends, the exact same people who promote open borders so that all these poor people from Latin America can come into our country and “do the work Americans won’t do” went after Ms. Nauert for employing a poor person from Latin America for “doing the work Americans won’t do”. You seriously cannot make this stuff up.

Nor is the tactic limited to the national media – it is a constant feature in more local media, too. In Texas, out here in flyover country where I live, both the Fort Worth Star Telegram and Houston Chronicle were forced to retract a story from last week in which they accused Texas Republican Lt. Governor Dan Patrick of under-paying his property taxes.

When a friend commended the newspapers for correcting their story, I pointed out to him that no apology would have been necessary were both media outlets not so overly-anxious to smear any politician with an “R” next to his or her name. Indeed, if Dan Patrick were a Democrat, no story would have ever been printed, much less rushed to press without doing the 2 minutes of research needed to figure out that the reason why Patrick’s taxes on his home had gone down instead of up from one year to the next was because he had properly filed for the state’s homestead exemption, a tax reduction program to which every Texas citizen is entitled on their place of residence.

There is nothing to admire in what the Star Telegram and Chronicle did, just as there is nothing admirable about CBS promoting a criminal’s book or CNN and MSNBC spending 24 hours a day, 7 days a week promoting the latest smear du jour. It’s all just a part of the same tactic, the same business model, the same effort to fake the news in support of a favored political party.

When the news media is fake, our entire society suffers. If you want to see the true enemies of the people, just pick up a newspaper or turn on your TV. You can’t miss ’em.

The Week in Review: Anti-Semite Dems, High Treason and Jussie Smollett

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

The Week in Review, courtesy of the @GDBlackmon Twitter Feed…

James Woods started the week out with a tribute to the Democrats’ “Green New Deal,” and things only got smellier from there:

If you aren’t following @mad_liberals on Twitter, you’re missing out on a ton of fun:

That time Minnesota Cong. Ilhan Omar apologized for being a raging anti-Semite, but really didn’t apologize at all:

If only we had an education system that actually educated anyone…:

Hey, I had no idea so many Virginia Democrats went to Rice University back in the day!:

Summing up the “competing” rallies between the POTUS and a loser in a senate race out in El Paso Monday night.:

The perfect endorsement for today’s Democrat Party.:

Why not? All the other communists are doing it.:

Kamala Harris is slowly morphing into Hillary Clinton before our very eyes. No wonder she’s become CNN’s chosen child.:

In actual real news from Tuesday…:

The inevitable outcome of the Democrats’ war on masculinity.:

Here I put college students’ current infatuation with AOC into proper historical context.:

Well, God Bless Texas, then.:

Speaking of Texas and energy…:

Seriously, is there any true thing Alexandria Ocasio Cortez actually does know? It is truly stunning that a human being can hold a college degree and be so breathtakingly ignorant.:

High treason news broke out all over the place on Thursday, and your fake news media scrambled to portray it as just a bunch of patriotic FBI guys doing their best to protect the nation from the evil Orange Man. Because of course they did. *sigh*:

Speaking of faking the news, the folks at Politico seem to be ramping up their efforts in that competition in recent weeks.:

Then this happened…:

…and the nitwit who led the effort opposing 25,000 new jobs and tens of billions in annual economic impact celebrated, because what else would a raging ignoramus do?:

As Jussie Smollett’s obvious hoax began officially falling apart, Chuck Ross accurately predicted the way all the fake journalists who did everything they could to promote the effort to smear every Trump supporter in the nation would respond.:

This explains how the Enemy Within, Ilhan Omar, got her seat in congress.:

Quick! Somebody load a chopper with food and get it up there!:

Why, it almost seems as if the fake news media is trying to mislead the public on Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s true health status. Go figure.:

From our Some Things Never Change file…:

Enemies of the people, plain and simple.

Mike Pence is Right: Ilhan Omar Has no Place on the Foreign Affairs Committee

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

Why did it take so long? – It took a Brooklyn jury well over a week to come back with a verdict finding Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman guilty, at long last. What are they putting in the water in Brooklyn that made this so hard? Seriously, unless there was some serious jury tampering going on, how could there possibly be any reasonable doubt in anyone’s mind that one of the most vicious, brutal and guilty beasts on the face of the earth was on trial here?

At any rate, the brute will remain behind bars for a long, long time, most likely the rest of his sorry life, so at least justice was done in the end.  But damn, where was the doubt here?

Another no good terrible very bad day for the Enemy Within. – Minnesota’s radical Muslim Democrat Ilhan Omar had another bad, and frankly idiotic day on Capitol Hill on Wednesday, as the fallout from her anti-Semitic tweet storm on Monday continued.

First, a clever parliamentary maneuver by the GOP minority in the House forced a vote on a resolution affirming America’s support for Israel and condemning those who endorse “movements that deny Israel’s right to exist,” something Omar has done repeatedly in the past. The move caught Democrats by surprise, and the many anti-Semitic among them had to scramble to decide whether to reveal their true nature or vote “yes” on the language.

In the end, all those present decided to support the language, resulting in a 424-0 vote in favor. Amazingly, not one of the media outlets has chosen to report on the only real salient question here, which is how did the Enemy Within vote on the measure? After all, the House has 435 members, so 11 are unaccounted for in that 424 number. We know that two voted “present”, but what about the others? The fake news media appears incapable of finding out.  Amazing.

Regardless, the unanimous vote amounts to a clear rebuke of Omar and her fellow anti-Semites on Capitol Hill.

A little earlier in the day, the Enemy Within used a hearing of the House Foreign Affairs Committee – on which San Fran Nan has chosen to plant her – to ask Special Envoy to Venezuela Elliott Abrams completely off-topic “questions” that were really just accusations. The topic of the hearing was ostensibly the rapidly deteriorating humanitarian situation in the socialist utopia of Venezuela, but Omar decided this would be a great opportunity to hurl accusations and insults at Abrams about his supposed role in … wait for it … the IRAN CONTRA SCANDAL!

I kid you not, the Enemy Within is so depraved, so despicable, such a typical…well…such a typical Democrat that she spent her entire allotted 5 minutes reading insults at Abrams from a document someone else had written for her. Her performance was so juvenile and inappropriate that even the ultra-leftwing Daily Beast published a post condemning her actions.

Don’t misunderstand – I have no sympathy at all for Elliott Abrams, a war-mongering neo-con who should not have any role whatsoever in a Trump Administration, and am frankly befuddled why Secretary of State Pompeo chose him for what is supposed to be a “peace-making” role. But witnesses at any congressional hearing, regardless of their backgrounds or which political party happens to be in the majority, should expect committee members to stick to the supposed reason for the hearing in their questioning. And no witness should be expected to sit quietly by as a member of congress, conveniently exempt from the nation’s laws governing libel and slander, impugns their reputation with ad hominem attacks in a public hearing.

Granted, Omar’s behavior in yesterday’s hearing has become just par for the Democrat course over the past two years, but when you’re a Democrat and your behavior is so far out of accepted norms that you draw the condemnation of a leftwing lapdog fake media outlet like the Daily Beast, you have definitely gone too far.

More than anything else, Omar’s despicable behavior yesterday proves exactly how wrong it is for this Enemy Within to have a seat on the House Foreign Affairs Committee. Simply condemning her anti-Semitic remarks is not enough – Speaker Pelosi needs to take some real action where this garbage member of congress is concerned. As Vice President Mike Pence said on Tuesday, she should remove the Enemy Within from the Foreign Affairs Committee.

Warning: Don’t hold your breath waiting for that to happen. These are Democrats we’re talking about here.

That is all.

Beto O’Rourke Had Better Fish or Cut Bait Very Soon

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

Oprah meet Beto; Beto meet Oprah…: – With his window of opportunity to get into the Democrat Party’s 2020 presidential nominating race rapidly closing, Irish Bob O’Rourke, fresh off a 30-day hiatus so he could “find himself” for about the 27th time in his goofy life, cast about for the highest-profile, most reliable Democrat media shill he could locate for a televised interview, and landed the biggest shill of all – Oprah Winfrey.

Filled with incisive, hard-hitting questions like “are you the real deal?” and “what’s it going to take for you to say ‘yes, I’m doing it’?”, Oprah’s interview soft-balled and powder-puffed its way to getting the famous Texas loser-to-Ted-Cruz to finally admit that he’s “been thinking about running for president” (you don’t say!) and he would announce his decision “before the end of the month.”  Oh, sing hosannas to the heavens and pass the flan!

The taping of the Oprah/Beto interview took place in New York City, presumably because The Oprah couldn’t be bothered to travel to Irish Bob’s technical home town of El Paso, Texas, and will air on The Oprah’s OWN network on Feb. 16, at which time I’ll be watching Wheel of Fortune or something on the History Channel.

Here’s the thing for Irish Bob: If he’s going to get into this race, he needs to do it now or sooner.  Last month would have been better, actually. It’s hard to keep up with it all at this point, but there are already at least 10 Democrats in the race, with at least a dozen more to come, and the laggards are going to find it harder and harder to properly staff their campaigns and raise the money to pay them. O’Rourke is married to a woman who is the heiress to a fortune reportedly worth billions, but unless Irish Bob’s dad-in-law is ready to fund the primary effort, our sheep-suit-wearing, tonsil-televising hero had better get his fundraising machine cranked up before all the big money has been otherwise committed.

A month ago I’d have made Irish Bob the odds-on favorite to be the 2020 Democrat nominee because he is the absolutely perfect Democrat candidate:  Completely unqualified; no accomplishments in the private sector of our economy of any note; no real accomplishments in government, either, for that matter; willing to say literally anything to attract votes from depraved and demented Democrat base voters; and he looks good on television. Hell, he even has his fake nickname that leads at least half of all Democrat voters to still think he is Hispanic or something, allowing him to tick off that “Minority” box even though he isn’t one, just like Fauxcahontas has made a habit of doing throughout her adult life in order to get ahead.

But today, with our fake news media already competing to jump ahead in line to promote the likes of Kamala Harris – who really is a minority and a woman to boot, and as unqualified and fraudulent as any candidate could be – Irish Bob runs the risk of becoming just another pretty face in the crowd if he waits too much longer to jump into the fray.  He has to remember that when running for the Democrat nomination, the most important endorsement doesn’t come from governors or senators or the party’s other “elder statesmen”.

No, the most important endorsement in the Democrat race comes from the fake news media. He had that full endorsement in his race against Ted Cruz, with the entirety of the Texas media actively campaigning on his behalf, and national outlets like the New York Times and CNN doing everything they could as well.

But he has to remember that he was a ‘party of one’ in that race – the only Democrat running, which made him the media’s default pick. The fact that he was running against Senator Cruz, who the media despise as fiercely as any Republican not named Trump, also helped lead to all those fawning puff pieces declaring him to be the next “Kennedy”.

Irish Bob hopes to ultimately be running against the even more-detested-by-the-fake-media Donald Trump, but first he will be running against probably two dozen fellow demented and depraved Democrats. That means he will not only have to compete with the likes of Harris, the Commie, the Fake Indian and Crazy Joe Biden for fawning attention from the national media, he even has to compete with former San Antonio Mayor Julian Castro for the front page puff pieces in the Austin American Statesman and Texas Tribune.

His problem today is that he’s cut this interview with The Oprah, so he can’t announce until it has aired, because if you cross The Oprah, you are well and truly a dead man walking in Democrat politics. So that’s at least another 10 lost days, days that he could have and should have been using to build a campaign.

So here’s the deal: If you haven’t seen Irish Bob make a formal announcement of his candidacy by noon on February 17, then you should probably quit obsessing about him, because he’s just too indecisive to succeed in a race against the bunch of ethics-devoid cutthroats he’d be up against in the Democrat primaries.

February 17 is your day, Irish Bob.  Fish, or cut the damn bait.

That is all.

Democrats/Media: Believe the Women!!! uh, unless they’re accusing a Democrat…

The Evening Campaign Update
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Your Democrat Party in action!: – Can the situation with the Virginia Democrat Party possibly get any worse?  Well, yeah, sure it could. After all, every one of these people went to high school, the potential for more embarrassing photographs to surface are as numerous as the number of elected Democrat officials multiplied by at least 4, by 8 if they received an undergrad degree, and by up to 12 for those who went to grad school. My goodness.

In a state where it was apparently customary for white kids to be made up in black face or wear KKK robes for school photos, the possibilities are almost endless. The latest to be found out is Attorney General Mark Herring, who admitted today that, like Gov. Ralph Northam, he got all dressed up in black face at the age of 19 so he could impersonate a rap artist in some talent show or something. Herring only made this admission because he became aware that a photo of his “talent” had been discovered in one of his school annuals and was about to be released to the public.

Ironically, Herring was among the first Democrat public officials to call for Northam to step down from his office last Friday, when Northam’s own college-yearbook foray into putting shoe polish in his face was made public. It’s not exactly a case of the proverbial “pot” calling the “kettle” black, but it’s pretty comparable.

But things got even more ridiculous for the Virginia Dems later in the day as their African American Lt. Governor, Justin Fairfax, was credibly accused of having committed sexual assault some 15 years ago. The accuser, Dr. Vanessa E. Tyson, released a statement to the press describing in detail an incredibly ugly attack she claims Farifax committed on her person when both were working at the Democrat National Convention in Boston:

“With tremendous anguish, I am now sharing this information about my experience and setting the record straight. It has been extremely difficult to relive that traumatic experience from 2004. Mr. Fairfax has tried to brand me as a liar to a national audience, in service to his political ambitions, and has threatened litigation. Given his false assertions, I’m compelled to make clear what happened,” she said in a statement.

I won’t go into the ugly details of the accusation here, other than to say Dr. Tyson’s claim is that Fairfax forced her to perform oral sex on him. The Fox News story linked above contains a link to the full statement.

Very predictably, the reaction from all the Democrat scumbags who spent weeks helping the fake news media and a procession of non-credible accusers smear Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh with the mantra “all women deserve to be believed!!!!!” has been…silence. See, you’re only supposed to “believe the women!!!!!!!” when their accusations are leveled against non-Democrats.

Meanwhile, no one should come into contact with this story without learning of the FACT that the news fakers at the Washington Post had this story a full year ago – directly from Dr. Tyson, who proactively contacted a reporter she knew at the fake newspaper – and chose to sit on it because, you know, uh, well, because Fairfax is a, um, well he’s a Democrat, after all.

It is also extremely important to keep in mind that the Washington Post was among the most guilty of perpetuating the false accusations against Kavanaugh, and all the while was doing everything it could to keep Dr. Tyson’s accusation against Fairfax away from the public.

Is it any wonder – any wonder at all – why so many millions of Americans hate our fake news media and consider fake news outlets like the WaPo to be their enemy?

No, no wonder at all.

That is all.

8 Bits of Intrigue to Look for in Tonight’s State of the Union Event

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

Hey, that whole “climate change” scam isn’t working for us, so here’s an idea – let’s use new talking points! –  The grand global climate scam has been running out of steam over the last two years since Donald Trump assumed the presidency and more and more Americans wake up to the reality that they have been heinously deceived by the Al Gores and Leonardo DiCaprios of the world.

So what are the scammers to do? After three solid decades of seeing them simply ramp up the shrillness of their alarmist rhetoric every time their movement began to lose momentum, the alarmists who now run the American Meteorological Society have decided to take a new tack: Tone things down and and become less shrill and more subtle with their brainwashing instead.

Don’t misunderstand – it will be the same old stuff, with every tropical storm described as being completely unprecedented, with every wildfire declared to be a sign of “permanent drought”, giving scary names to every significant cold front and with every thunderstorm pronounced to be the “strongest on record.” But they’ll be calmer about it all, and the plan is to stop blaming your SUV for everything – because pretty much nobody is buying that anyway – and begin instead to connect it all directly to advocacy for … wait for it… leftist government policies!

I swear I don’t make this stuff up:  

“Is it humans or is it not? We really need to get beyond that,” Bernadette Woods Placky, an Emmy award-winning meteorologist who directs the Climate Matters program at Climate Central, told me. Climate Matters is tracking climate trends in 244 cities—including a steadily warming Phoenix. “We are still not getting enough people to talk about it in the ways that matter to human beings in their homes, in their communities, for their family,” she added. “So it is making those connections in ways that really matter to people. It’s a jobs story. It’s an agriculture story. Connect it to the farm bill; boom!”

Boom, indeed. This new scam plan will last about 3 months or until Al Gore puts together another slide show, whichever comes first. Then it will all go back to the traditional alarmist hype, because that is the literal dogma of the Global Church of Climate Change, of which Mr. Gore is the reigning Pope.

The State of the Union address is tonight – here are eight key things to look for that the media isn’t talking about this morning:

  • Will Texas Democrat Sheila Jackson Lee have her customary seat on the aisle so she can get her face on television? – Is the Pope Catholic (ok, that’s an open question)? Does a wild bear poop in the woods? It is a very safe bet that she is already ensconced in her favorite seat as I post this piece up around 7:00 Central Time this morning. There she will sit all day long, forcing staffers to bring her food and sit in for her when she takes bathroom breaks, in her annual effort to show her constituents how important she is. It is possibly the most pathetic tradition in the DC Swamp.
  • Will Ruth Bader Ginsburg give the nation proof of life? – Don’t count on it. And don’t count on any of the news fakers at CNN, MSNBC or the three “major” broadcast networks to make any mention of her absence.
  • Will San Fran Nan have that gerbil running around in her mouth again this year? – Ok, it was probably just a poorly-fitting bridge, but Nancy Pelosi spent the entirety of Trump’s speech last year looking for all the world like she was chasing some sort of living being around in her mouth with her tongue. She’ll be seated behind the President at the podium this time, so the camera will be on her all night long. Hopefully she’s had a trip to the orthodontist since then, because it was not a pretty spectacle.

  • Will West Virginia Senator Joe Manchin have to get Chuck Schumer’s permission on when to stand and applaud this year? – He did last year, and was famously caught on camera quickly sitting down after Schumer gave him a dirty look.  Pathetic.
  • Will Democrat freshmen stage some sort of a disruption? – Don’t be surprised if freshmen Democrats, led by communist Alexandria Ocasio Cortez and Muslim extremists Ilhan Omar and Rhashida Tlaib, stage some sort of disruption during the speech. It would be in keeping with their distinct lack of character.
  • Will any white man from the Virginia Democrat delegation show up in blackface or KKK robes? – After this last week, it’s a perfectly valid question.
  • Will the President call Democrats out for their ongoing advocacy of killing live-born babies? – He certainly should, and he should do it in the most unambiguous language possible.
  • Will the President call the fake news media out for its ongoing protection of the blatant racist, infanticide-supporting Governor of Virginia? – Assuming Ralph Northam has still not resigned by the time President Trump takes the podium tonight, how could he not?

There you have them – eight points of intrigue to keep your sharp eyes out for during this year’s rendition of the most tedious and tiresome bit of Kabuki Theater the DC Swamp rolls out to entertain the masses each year. I still wish the President had decided to go deliver this thing out in Pittsburgh, St. Louis or the Rio Grande Valley last week, but hey, it is what it is, so let’s all make the best of it.

That is all.
