Stacey Abrams Takes TDS to a New Level

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

Dobroye utro, druz’ya! – Please excuse me, I’m just brushing up on my Russian.

Good morning, friends! – Every time I think the rhetoric from prominent Democrats in our beautiful motherland, er, United States of America cannot possibly become more absurdly demented than it already is, one of them goes right out and proves me wrong.

Enter Georgia gubernatorial loser and Legend in Her Own Mind Stacey Abrams, who went full Russkie yesterday while speaking to an event called National Security Action Forum put on by some leftist organization that doesn’t actually give a tinker’s damn about national security. After being told by despicable former Obama advisor (ok, the “despicable” is redundant there) Ben Rhodes that her rather pedestrian response to this year’s State of the Union Address was “the single best speech” we’ve heard in the past two years, the Georgia also-ran went off on a riff about the Democrat fantasy hobgoblin of “voter supression,” and it turned epic.

Epic in an utterly and pitifully demented and absurd way, that is. As she rambled on, blaming her favorite bogeyman for her 55,000 vote loss despite her having gotten every vote from every dead person in the state of Georgia, she said the situation with “voter suppression” is so dire that it will cause us all to be speaking the Mother Tongue in barely a decade:

Abrams calls voter suppression a national security threat to the nation. “If we do not secure our democracy in 2020 … we will be having a very different conversation, potentially in Russian, in 2030.”

Really and truly, how do you even respond to something that silly? Byron York found a way:

That is true, but here’s the thing: Your Democrat friends pretty much have all bought into this sort of raging dementia and take it very, very seriously.

You know what the real threat to our nation is? Lies spread by Democrats like Abrams and their toadies in the fake news media. The real threat to our nation is that objective truth has no meaning anymore to fully 33% of the country and 98% of our national news media. The real threat to our nation is that the report from a 2 year-long Witch Hunt can fully exonerate the President and the Democrats and their media toadies act like it never happened.

The real threat to our nation is that a pedestrian loser and pathological liar like Stacey Abrams can be broadly considered by one of our two major political parties as a perfectly fine vice presidential running mate for its looming near-octogenarian presidential candidate, who himself is a pathological liar who has been comically wrong about literally every major issue for half a century.

Understand that this woman who thinks we’ll all be speaking Russian in a decade if Donald Trump is re-elected decided not to run for the Georgia senate seat in 2020 because she’s already made a backroom deal with Joe Biden to be his running mate, which means she could well be one very frail heartbeat away from the presidency come January, 2021.

If a Republican – any Republican – had said in 2012 what Abrams said on Friday, he’d have been mercilessly panned and ridiculed by every media outlet and late-night television host for weeks, and deservedly so. But let a barely-coherent Democrat loser say it, and all the media puppet heads just nod in unison like an array of bobble-head dolls.

And the 33% of our citizens who like to call themselves Democrats nod right along with them.

Sheep.

That is all.

It’s Predicament Day for Democrats and Disloyal White House Staffers

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

Oh, noes, not predicaments! – Y’all, we have a bunch of really awful people finding themselves in “predicaments” today – aren’t you sad? So, so, so sad for these terrible, sleazy people? Yeah, me neither.

The first bunch of execrable jackasses who find themselves in a predicament today are the leaders of the Democrat Party, and they’re in their current predicament thanks to what Bloomberg describes as “a sliver” of The Commie’s voter base, who are in what the media likes to call “Bernie or bust mode.” These voters are so embittered by the fact that the DNC fixed the 2016 nominating process for the Pantsuit Princess that they’ve decided they’ll simply abandon the Party if their Commie hero doesn’t get his way this time.

But hey, what’s the worry here? As I noted yesterday, Bernie’s the Democrat front-runner now, well ahead of Creepy Uncle Joe and 20 points up on Irish Bob O’Rourke. And isn’t it interesting that we don’t see Bloomberg or anyone else in the news media writing pieces about “Biden or Bust” voters or “Beto or Bust” voters? Although, the way they’re all slobbering over Mayor Pete right now, we will surely see some “Buttigieg or Bust” pieces in the near future.

Oh, hey, and have you noticed this?  Take a look at the photo above and tell me what the four men pictured have in common.  That’s right: The Party of Social Justice Warriors and campus Snowflakes has four pasty-white males leading everyone else in its nominating process. Taken together, those four symbols of white male privilege and toxic quasi-masculinity are pulling 70% of the support in the race in the new Emerson Poll.

Remember when Kamala Harris and Cory Booker were the Party’s “rising stars” according to the fake news media? They’ve been completely eclipsed by Irish Bob and Mayor Pete, two of the whitest white men on planet earth. The one real Hispanic candidate in the race, former San Antonio Mayor Joaquin Castro, having not been endowed with the fake media’s “rising star” tag, sits at 3% in the Emerson poll, and just 1% in every other recent poll taken in the race. The fakest Indian in the race, Elizabeth Warren, just keeps bumbling and stumbling along at 5-8% support in the various polls.

That reality in and of itself presents quite the predicament for the Democrat Party, because there are tons and tons of SJWs out there who aren’t going to vote for a white male, whether he’s a real Commie like Bernie, or pretend commies like Irish Bob or Mayor Pete. So any way you slice this pie, the Democrats have quite the predicament, thanks to their half-century-long cynical focus on identity politics.

I’m cool with that.

And now a word from our sponsors… – I spent a very fun half-hour on NewsTalk 93.1 FM in Montgomery, AL with host Greg Budell on Tuesday. The podcast is below. My segment starts at about the 35 minute mark, when Greg and his producer Joey tee up Cher’s Democrat Party theme song, “Gypsies, Tramps and Thieves” as my intro. But listen to the whole thing – Greg’s hilarious and runs a great program.

 

Follow this link for more of this great show’s podcasts, and follow Greg on Twitter at @GregBudell.

Now, back to today’s “predicaments”… – In other Predicament news, the pending release of the Mueller Report tomorrow by Attorney General William Barr has people nervous, and we can all imagine why that would be the case.

Apparently no one is more nervous today than all the creeps and seditionists on the White House staff who have been working from the inside to undermine President Donald Trump and his Administration for the last two years. The news-fakers at Vanity Fair are reporting that some of these scumbags and sleazeballs are “experiencing “breakdown-level anxiety” over whether their names or identifying details will appear in the report.”

Oh, my. Oh, my, my, my. Don’t you all just feel so terrible for them? Yeah, neither do I.

But boy, this is a real, big-time predicament, isn’t it? You’re a White House staffer. You took the job on a pledge to be loyal to the President and the country, and you have spent your time on the job leaking trash to our garbage news media and doing whatever else you could to inhibit that same President’s ability to do his job on behalf of the American people. Now, you’re afraid that the release of the report by the Gestapo Chief, er, “Special Counsel” who’s completed his 22-month sham investigation is going to catch you up in its undertow.

Well, that’s just dandy, as my dear Dad used to say.

Bring it on, Mr. Barr. Let’s out these seditionists and provide them with a little public-exposure “justice” of their own. Couldn’t think of a more deserving den of snakes.

That is all.

Almost All of You Paid Less Taxes in 2018, And Bernie Sanders Wants That Money Back

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

As always, the fake news media was lying to you.  – Yesterday was tax day, and millions upon millions of Americans found out that, as is always the case when it comes to President Donald Trump and his policies, the fake news media has been lying to them for 17 solid months about the impacts the Trump tax cuts would have on their own income tax bills. The fake news media has spent every day since the bill was passed in December, 2017 telling the Big Lie, reciting its joint talking points with their Democrat Party masters, pretending that the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act was just a giveaway to millionaires and corporations.

But yesterday was the proof point, with pretty much every taxpayer outside of high state income tax states like New York and California getting a very significant cut. Even in those high-tax states, the great majority of citizens paid less tax than they would have under the Obama tax regime.

Still, leftist morons like failed actress Alyssa Milano were out on Twitter, posting mindless nonsense claiming things like “Already this April, we’ve learned that tax refunds are down this year by $6 BILLION”, proving only that they have no clue how the income tax system works. Yes, total tax “refunds” have been lower than under the previous high-tax regime, for two reasons:  1) the most obvious – total tax LIABILITIES are much, much lower under the new system (duh), and 2) the simplification of the system resulted in more accurate tax withholding tables, meaning wage-earners got more of their hard-earned money up-front, rather than overpaying and allowing the government to earn interest on their money until they filed their refund claim.

But we can’t expect abject nitwits like poor Alyssa to ever understand anything so complex. The doofus also tweeted that “According to a recent NBC/WSJ poll, only 17 percent of Americans think their taxes went down, and a majority don’t think they got any tax cut at all. And this isn’t partisan. Only 33 percent of Republicans think they got a tax cut.”

Well, yes, but what does that prove? It just proves the success of the Big Lie strategy by the media/Democrat axis of propaganda on this issue. Even on Fox News, you could find talking heads on a regular basis lying about these tax cuts. Just as in 2008, when Americans were brainwashed by the media to accept the notion that they were somehow obligated to vote for an African American man, as if doing that would somehow make up for slavery, this particular Big Lie strategy was a success, no doubt.

And let’s face it: many, many people – including pretty much all Democrats – are so dimwitted that they will continue to believe the Big Lie even though they paid far less taxes in 2018, simply because they got a lower refund. All that does is prove how successful the political left has been in dumbing down our schools.

The rest of us should just enjoy our extra money, and remember that those tax cuts were enacted without a single Democrat vote.  NOT ONE.

Meanwhile, the Democrat front-runner wants all that money back, and more. Much, much more. – The Commie had a townhall on Fox News last night, and made it very clear he wants all of that tax money back, and a whole lot more.

Bernie Sanders – now the front-runner for the 2020 Democrat nomination according to the new Emerson Poll – told moderators Martha McCallum and Brett Baier about all his grand plans to rape the American taxpayer and spend all their money on “free” college, “free” healthcare and “free” everything else, promising well over $100 trillion in new government spending if he is elected to the presidency.

Hey, if you’re going to turn the Democrat Party into the Socialist Party, you might as well go all the way.

On the other hand, you do have to admire Sanders for having the guts to go on Fox News, where he knew he would be asked tough questions that would never be asked on CNN, MSNBC or any of the three major networks, and sticking to his guns. The old Bolshevik had a quick, if hilariously mindless and false, answer to everything, and never strayed from his commie roots, which is more than any of his challengers would be able to do in the face of such a grilling.

And hey, it’s refreshing to see at least one Democrat finally dropping the pretense that he or she is not a socialist, isn’t it? Sanders doesn’t really believe anything that Obama or Hillary Clinton didn’t believe – he’s just willing to come right out and say it.

His frankness has already influenced the other contenders to be more honest about their real bone-headed beliefs, and Sanders’ new-found status as front-runner in the race will only cause the others to move even further to the radical left.

Thus, no matter which one of these raging lunatics ends up with the Party’s nomination, American voters are finally, at long last going to be presented with a clear, stark choice between voting to continue have a free and open society, or follow Venezuela by taking our country down into the socialist abyss. That is where the Democrat Party has wanted to lead us since at least the Woodrow Wilson Administration more than a century ago – Sanders is just the first guy who’s been willing to openly and proudly admit it.

Dangerous times, these are.

How March 15, 2019 Turned Out to be the Ides of Beto

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

Just don’t call it Jeb!II, ‘cuz that looks funny. – Just days after his 2016 campaign’s Super PAC was hit with a huge fine for taking more than $1.3 million in illegal contributions from Chinese interests, Jeb! Bush was on CNN (because of course he was on CNN) saying that someone (hint, hint) ought to challenge President Donald Trump for the GOP nomination in 2020.

Gosh, who would that be, Jeb!? Why, what Republican out there would have the ability to raise something like, oh, I don’t know, $150 million or so from U.S. and Chinese interests to fritter away in a hopeless effort to challenge a hugely-successful sitting President from his own party?

What prominent Republican is so filled with hubris and lacking in anything substantive to do with the rest of his life that he would be willing to take on the mantle of the rapidly-dying #NeverTrump nitwit faction of the GOP in such a Quixotic quest? Even better, what prominent Republican has a last name that every American voter immediately recognizes thanks to a family legacy of ex-Presidents and his having tossed away $150 million in American and Chinese currency during the 2016 nominating battle?

Hey, I know who that guy is – he’s Jeb! And the great thing is, Jeb! could even promise to name Paul Ryan as his running mate, since Ryan’s got nothing better to do right now, either. That worked out so well for Mitt Romney in 2012, after all. Maybe even call him Paul!, because that worked out so well for Jeb!, didn’t it?

“Jeb!Paul!2020!” The bumper stickers practically name themselves!

Ok, that’s too many exclamation points – time to move on.

Dear Irish Bob: Your window of opportunity was January 1. You missed it. – Back in November, I told you all that I fully expected Robert Francis O’Rourke to be the Democrats’ 2020 nominee for the presidency.  Then, in early February, I warned you that the lanky, fidgety Texan had better fish or cut bait pretty quick, because his window of opportunity was closing.

Here’s an excerpt from that piece:

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.

Today, I’m telling you that my February piece was overly-optimistic, and our hero’s window of opportunity most likely closed way back in January, maybe even December, before any of the other candidates got into the race.

There was plenty of reason in late November to believe O’Rourke could become the Democrat nominee. Yeah, he’d just lost his senate race to Ted Cruz, but he had made it pretty close thanks to a 3-to-1 spending advantage, and today’s Democrats are all about the moral victory, just fascinated with political losers. He was clearly the favorite of all the young girls in the news media and many of the young men as well, all of whom longed to get the plum assignment of covering his campaign.

He truly had everything going for him, all the political momentum in the world, and then…he decided to take a few months off. He said he had to go “find myself”, and spent weeks wandering around who knows where, live-streaming dental visits, doing interviews with an ever-willing Oprah and “60 Minutes” crew and apparently raising a clinically depressed black Labrador retriever.

December came and went. January came and went. February came and went and then half of March, until there were 11 Democrat candidates in the race, but still no precious Beto for all the local TV news anchors to swoon over. Simply put, by the time Irish Bob finally got around to formally announcing he was going to run, a huge portion of his potential support base that was firmly behind him in late 2018 had already moved on.

Even more devastating for the de facto favored candidate of the news media, many of his potential suitors had grown tired of being stood up for the date, and had even grown bitter. Even worse than that, some of them had even figured out the essence of his schtick, as evidenced by the headline of the piece published yesterday by the very liberal New Republic: “The Profound Emptiness of Beto O’Rourke.”  Ouch.

The leftwing media pushback wasn’t limited to the New Republic – far from it. The lunatics who run Slate beat them to the punch by two full days with an anti-Beto diatribe headlined “Beto 2020 Has No Reason to Exist.” Yikes.

By Friday, the growing awareness in the fake news media of Irish Bob’s essential emptiness as a human being and similarly-growing awareness by the Social Justice Warriors among the Democrat voter base that this guy with the Hispanic-sounding nickname is really just another pasty-faced white guy had the hacks at Politico using the dreaded “B” word:  “Not One Woman Got That Kind of Coverage: Beto Backlash Begins.” Hooboy.

Indeed, the backlash momentum had become so severe by week’s end that not even the news-fakers at CNN could resist getting in on the act:

 

Other leftist media organizations had become so bitter by Irish Bob’s months of dithering that they even assigned reporters to do some actual, real reporting on his dark personal background. That led to this report from Reuters making its way into publication on Friday:

Backstory: How Reuters uncovered Beto O’Rourke’s teenage hacking days – Reuters reporter Joseph Menn exclusively revealed on Friday that Democratic presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke belonged to one of the best-known groups of computer hackers as a teenager.

Oh, my.

This was not how it was all supposed to go for our precious Beto, not how it was supposed to go at all.

The fact that Friday was March 15, aka the Ides of March, had many speculating that Gestapo Chief, er, “Special Counsel” Robert Mueller would use the Caesarian symbolism of that date to issue his final report. Well, the long knives of the American Left were certainly out on Friday, but they weren’t coming for President Trump, they were coming for Irish Bob.

March 15, 2019 should forever be remembered as the Ides of Beto, the day it became obvious that the guy who couldn’t win Texas despite an enormous money edge and the entire national news media serving as his campaign’s propaganda operation won’t be able to compete on a national stage, either.

It turns out that window closed way back in January.

That is all.

The Mueller Smear is Winding Down

The Evening Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Have you noticed you haven’t heard much about “Russia Collusion” lately? –  Come to think of it, you have noticed that, right?

Right.  Over the past month, the fake news stories on the front pages of the New York Times and the Washington Post detailing tales from always unidentified “sources” about how Special Counsel Robert Mueller is “closing in on Donald Trump,” or how some Mueller action is “bad news for Donald Trump,” or how Mueller’s indictments of another dozen or so Russian ham sandwiches spells “the beginning of the end for Donald Trump” have suddenly disappeared.

To some extent that has been because of all the hysteria surrounding the latest Democrat/media mounted smear, this time of Judge Brett Kavanaugh, but that’s far from the only reason.

Know what the other reason – the main reason – for this sudden lack of fake reporting on the Mueller investigation is?  Simple:  It’s because  Mueller is continuing to wind his Russia Collusion smear down.

Today, we saw two big indicators that this is the case:

  • This story at the extremely fake The Hill website, detailing the fact that two more Clinton/Obama hack lawyers have resigned from Mueller’s staff; and
  • The 15,000 word New York Times #fakenews story alleging all manner of tax evasion and tax fraud on Trump’s part back in the 1990s.

Trust me, these two stories are intimately tied to one another.

Think about the Mueller thing for a minute:  This makes five hack lawyers who have left his staff since July.  Lawyers don’t leave a project like the Special Counsel’s office if there is a ton of work left to be done.  Lawyers start bailing out of these things like this when the work starts winding down, along with the billable hours.

Now combine the rapidly diminishing staff with the fact that Mueller agreed a few weeks ago to accept written answers from the White House on the whole Russia Collusion fairy tale, and has since been making noises about being reluctant to really pursue the mounting of what would be a hopeless obstruction of justice case over the firing of James Comey, and what are you left with?  You’re left with a sinking ship from which these hack lawyers are looking to bail out for greener, more billable pastures.

Seeing the Democrat/media-invented Russia Collusion fantasy play winding down and the Democrat/media-mounted smear of Judge Kavanaugh falling apart, into the breach plunges the New York Times with its year-long “investigation” of the Trump family’s financial dealings during the last century.  If you believe the timing of this is purely coincidental, please leave me your phone number in the comments section below because I have some prime, unsaleable property out in West Texas I want to talk with you about.

Obviously, the Times has been holding this story for breaking at exactly the “right” time, since the collapse of one smear always necessitates the mounting of another out there in the fake news world they occupy.

Of course, the fatal flaw in the Times’ latest smear is obvious:  All of the financial transactions about which their fake journalists and editors are alleging fraud were exhaustively audited in real time by not only the IRS but also by the relevant state tax departments and found, with minor adjustments, to be fully in compliance with the state and federal tax laws.

But hey, smears don’t have to be true – if they did, Brett Kavanaugh would have been confirmed to the Supreme Court and already sworn in.  No, a Democrat/media smear merely has to be plausible enough for a few days to create the desired level of outrage among the Democrat Party’s demented, hopelessly ignorant far-left voter base.  When viewed through that outrage lens, the Times story will no doubt produce the desired effect, at least for awhile.

But viewed through the lens of reality, that story plus the news of the latest staff departures means the Mueller investigation is rapidly winding down, and the Democrats and their media toadies are casting about for their next line of attack on President Trump.  The Times tax story will have a very short shelf life, so expect another fake smear to be mounted in about a week.

Just another day in Trump Derangement Syndrome America.

That is all.
