Donald Trump Just Keeps on Winning for America

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Ok, well, he IS the Boss. – Bruce Springsteen says he doesn’t “see anyone out there at the moment… the man who can beat Trump, or the woman who can beat Trump.” For some reason, the UK Daily Mail thought it was important for us all to know that, so there you go.

Tired of all this Winning yet? – President Donald Trump and Chinese President Xi Jinping agreed during the G-20 Summit over the weekend to a 90-day pause in the ongoing trade war between the two nations. While leftists in and out of our fake news media are poo-pooing the deal as just a return to the status quo prior to President Trump’s implementation of new tariffs, that is not the case at all.

The U.S. side of the deal apparently consists of agreeing to not increase U.S. tariffs on hundreds of billions of Chinese goods for the 90-day period, as Trump had threatened to do on January 1. In return, China agrees to rescind its tariffs on imports of U.S. automobiles, roll back its 40% tariff rates on most U.S. goods to lower levels, agreed to purchase an as-yet unspecified amount of U.S. goods to reduce the trade deficit, and – perhaps most importantly – to “stiffen penalties on sales of the powerful opioid fentanyl into the U.S., a step the White House press secretary described as ‘a wonderful humanitarian gesture.'”

Leftists might not like it, but the markets obviously do: Dow futures are up bigly as I write this Update this morning.  #WINNING.

Speaking of winning… – City officials in Tijuana, Mexico acted to move the estimated 6,000 “migrants” out of the sports facility they had occupied for the last few weeks due to the horrid unsanitary conditions they had created there. In a move that will make it harder for the activists among the crowd to mount further assaults on the border crossings there, city officials moved the “migrants” to an abandoned concert venue more than 10 miles further away from the border.

Griff Jenkins at Fox News – and basically no one else in our fake news media – reported last Friday that fully 1/3rd of the “migrants” were being treated for health issues, including head lice, “tuberculosis, four cases of HIV/AIDS and four separate cases of chickenpox,” according to local health authorities. With the unsanitary conditions growing worse by the day, Mexican officials also feared an outbreak of Hepatitis could take place unless the crowd was moved.

In another related turn of events, newly-inaugurated Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador (AMLO), in one of his first acts in office, “signed an agreement with his counterparts from three Central American countries to establish a development plan to stem the flow of migrants seeking asylum in the U.S.” This compact was entered into at the urging of the Trump Administration.

Here’s why this is important, even if the human misery among these poor people is hard to watch: The move 10 miles further from the border will no doubt encourage more of them to either return home or accept the generous offer of asylum the Mexican government has been offering them for more than a month now. This “caravan” once numbered more than 10,000, so many already have done so, as Mexican officials confirmed early last week.

The other key factor is that, as it becomes clear that the United States of America is not going to allow these “caravans” to just walk right into our country and sign up for welfare benefits, it will become increasingly difficult for the leftist activists forming and funding them to find people in Honduras and other Central American nations willing to participate. The new willingness of the Mexican government to cooperate with U.S. efforts to halt this tide is a crucial development in all of this.

You will never see anyone at CNN, the New York Times, the Washington Post or any of the three dying broadcast networks admit this, but these latest developments demonstrate how extraordinarily effective the Trump Administration’s response to this “migrant caravan” issue has been.

It is such a joy to have a President who just goes to work every day and finds ways to get things done for the American people rather than cowering in fear at the prospect of getting a little bad press. To get to this point on this “caravan” issue, President Trump has had to overcome decades of horrible immigration policy decisions, the cacophony of inaccurate and outright fake reporting coming from the U.S. and international news media, ongoing resistance from some within his own Administration and a seemingly unending series of laughably unconstitutional decisions issued by an array of Obama-appointed federal judges.

Yet still he not only perseveres, but finds ways to prevail. That is #WINNING. Bigly.

 

Paris Burning Watch:

By the way, just so everyone understands, the reason why French Child President Emanuel Macron is raising that nation’s already confiscatory gasoline tax to even higher levels is not, as some have reported, an attempt to improve the government’s budget situation. What it really is is a fool’s effort to meet his country’s emissions reduction goals which France – like every nation on earth other than the United States of America – pledged to meet as a part of the Paris Climate Accords.

France’s emissions have actually increased since Macron committed his country to that socialist wealth redistribution scam, which is an embarrassment to him and his government. But hey, he’s not alone – not one single, solitary signatory country to the Paris Accords has met its pledged goals. Indeed, the country that has cut its emissions more than any nation on earth since that deal was signed is…wait for it…The United States of America.

Some of you probably tire of seeing me make this point, but it’s a key point to make:  This is just one more reason to be thrilled that Donald J. Trump won the 2016 presidential contest.  Because had the Pantsuit Princess prevailed that historic day, the streets of New York and Los Angeles would probably be burning along with those in Paris.

That is all.

Senator Graham Transitions From RINO to Trumpist on Immigration

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

So, you’re sayin’ there’s still a chance. –  Hearts went to palpitating at fake media outlets all over the Texas news media yesterday when their hero, Irish Bob “Beto” O’Rourke, said he just might be running for president in 2020. At least, that’s the way Irish Bob’s comments are being breathlessly reported on your Texas-based radios and televisions this morning.

Of course, as is so often the case with our fake news media reporting on Irish Bob, the reporting isn’t exactly right. What the eternally cute and fidgety Democrat boy toy actually said was this:

O’Rourke said that he had just returned from a vacation with his family and was enjoying being home in El Paso. “That’s what we’re focused on now,” he said. “Just being together as a family, making sure I deliver everything I can to the people I represent until Jan. 3. Then Amy and I will think about what we can do next to contribute to the best of our ability to this community,” he said.

Then he looked at his wife in the audience. “Amy, how was that?”

In other words, the beloved Beto did not say he might be running, he just didn’t say an outright, unqualified “no” when asked. But that was enough to set our “Dumb and Dumber” fake news media off on another round of Betomania promotion.

Because of course it was.

Oh, and by the way, he’s running. There’s way too much money in it for him to do anything else.

Ocasio Cortez Watch:

Irish Bob’s ideal running mate when 2024 comes around got into a little dust-up on Twitter with Senator Lindsey Graham on Monday.  It went something like this:

Bazinga!

Speaking of Senator Graham… – The Senator from South Carolina has been on a roll lately.  I missed this on Sunday, but he sent out a couple of tweets that afternoon that deserve to be noted, mainly because Graham has in the past – while he was following John McCain around like a little puppy dog – always been a dove on illegal immigration:

Folks, when we have looming armies of illegal immigrants behaving so badly at our Southern border that even Lindsey Graham is ready to just shut it down, what we have is an invasion, plain and simple.

Never forget that that’s what this is: An invasion. Because words are important, and so is recognizing things for what they are.

It is also very important to remember that the people in these “caravans” have no legitimate claim to asylum in the United States. Asylum is meant for those fleeing wars or other violent oppression from the government in their home country. The best fake argument that Democrats and our fake news media can come up with for these folks is that they are “fleeing gang violence,” a term we see and hear repeated ad nauseum in almost every fake news media report on the matter.

Look, people in Chicago have a real problem with gang violence. So do folks in Los Angeles and New Orleans and most other Democrat-run big cities in the United States. No one in the Democrat Party or our fake news media is saying that their constituents in those cities have some sort of unfettered right to form up “caravans” of 5,000 people and storm into Canada.

These people are “fleeing” poverty, nothing else. Most of them freely admit that whenever one of the few moderately-curious “journalists” embeded with them ask why they want to come to America. Some of them are looking for work, others are simply looking to get on America’s public dole, which Democrats have made so easy to abuse.

Even if this bunch had legitimate claims to asylum, they are in that case obligated under international law to seek it in the first foreign country they enter, which would be Mexico. Mexico’s government has generously offered asylum to every one of these people, most of whom flatly turned it down. Real “asylum seekers” don’t get to do that. Fake ones do, apparently.

In situations like this, liberals love to get all teary-eyed and quote the poem on the Statue of Liberty, as if it is some sort of law (it isn’t).  Here is what that poem says:

“Give me your tired, your poor, Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free, The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.”

Here is what that poem does not say:

“Give me an army of thousands of mostly military-aged males, your gangsters yearning to crash through our border checkpoints, The wretched grifters wishing to plant the flag of their home country on our soil and live off the generosity of our taxpayers.”

We are a nation of immigrants, that much of the liberal dogma on this subject is true.  Legal immigration through an orderly process in which our country gets to decide, through its sovereign rights, who does and does not get to enter our shores, is a good and positive thing.

But this – this invasion – is not a good thing at all. Thank goodness we have a President who sees the situation for what it is, and deals with it properly despite all the false hysteria emanating from the other side.

That is all.
Postscript: I meant to include this terrific tweet from Buck Sexton in the original piece, but forgot.  So, a little late, here it is:

Perfect.

That is really all.

The Week in Review: No Good Deed By Donald Trump Goes Unpunished

The Campaign Update Week in Review

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

President Donald Trump was in both Montana and Florida for rallies on Saturday.  Think about that for a minute:  He’s based in Washington, D.C.  He gets up in the morning, gets his daily security briefing, then hops on Marine One – after chatting with the hostile fake news media for a little bit – which takes him to Joint Base Andrews.

There, he boards Air Force One for the 5-hour flight out to Belgrade, Montana.  He spends an hour speaking to an audience of thousands of Montanans – with thousands more watching on large video screens outside the venue – then he hops back on Air Force One for the 2,000 mile, 5-hour flight down to Pensacola, Florida.

There, he again spends an hour speaking to thousands of Floridians, with a huge crowd of thousands more gathered outside, and then hops back on Air Force One for the 1-hour flight to his resort at Mar-a-Lago.  Presumably, he got some sleep there.

This is a 72 year-old man.  By the way, this is a 72 year-old man who works for free.  He donates his presidential salary every quarter to a different worthy cause, an act of generosity that goes unreported by our fake news media.

While Democrats, their agents in the fake news media and even many of his Republican colleagues bitch and moan about him spending too much time at Mar-a-Lago and the other properties he owns on weekends, the fact of the matter is that most normal men his age and wealth status would be spending all of their time playing golf while the kids take over the family business.  Instead, Donald Trump is spending his time presiding over a nation experiencing a booming economy and relative peace and stability in the world.

For delivering all of that, he has been rewarded with 92% negative fake media coverage, hostile and violent rhetoric coming from all corners of pop culture and the education establishment, unending assassination threats from entertainers and social media, and a special counsel investigation that has now lingered on for 17 months.

Our nation has an odd way of rewarding all this WINNING.

Trump in Montana:  Purple mountains majesties above the fruited plain!

 

 

Let’s go to the Week in Review:

  • It was the week that one of Brett Kavanaugh’s Democrat-recruited accusers admitted not only that she lied to the Senate Judiciary Committee, but that she has in fact never even met Justice Kavanaugh.  If you’re surprised by this, you haven’t been paying attention.
  • It was the week that leftist lawyers for a dozen “migrants” who have never set foot in the United States of America were allowed to file a lawsuit in federal court against a sitting President.  Because, rights, or something.
  • It was the week that a campaign staffer for Democrat Andrew Gillum was arrested for throwing her milk at a group of college Republicans.  Because, hey, this is what the media has empowered her to do.
  • It was the week that multiple staffers for Irish Bob O’Rourke were caught on video illegally using campaign funds to send money to the “migrant caravan” in Mexico, and the Texas news media shamed itself by parrotting the O’Rourke campaign’s talking points and ignoring the video evidence.  Again, if this surprises you, you haven’t been paying attention.
  • It was the week the fake news media completely forgot about that Khashoggi guy, and so did every other American.
  • It was the week that the Democrats and their media agents mounted a coordinated effort to define any effort to criticize the despicable, anti-American, anti-Israel George Soros as “anti-Semitic” hate speech.  Holy crap.
  • It was the week that Democrat Supreme Court Justice Sonya Sotomayor said in one breath that she often would have used a baseball bat on the late Antonin Scalia if she had had one handy, but in the next breath said that “differences don’t stand, necessarily, on ill will.”  I swear I don’t make this stuff up.
  • It was the week this happened:

*sigh*

  • It was the week a former high-profile campaign worker for Barack Hussein Obama was arrested for spraying anti-Semitic graffiti and attempting to burn down a Jewish Synagogue, and the fake news media studiously ignored his connection to the former President:

  • It was the week garbage human being Alec Baldwin got arrested, yet again:

  • It was the week President Trump re-instituted all previous sanctions on Iran and added a few more.  This came after two days of fake media reports that his Administration was backing off of most of them.  Fake news, defined.
  • It was the week that Morning Joe guest pinhead Donny Deutsch actually said that Donald Trump was elected to the presidency because “I don’t think we were ready for a black president.” Quick:  Someone tell Donny that we actually elected a black president, TWICE.  My goodness.
  • It was the week that this happened:

Are there really real, actual Texans who care what John Brennan thinks about our senate race?  Really???
  • It was the week that CNN fake host Don Lemon told America – or, well, the tiny little sliver of leftist America that still watches CNN – that our biggest terror threat is “white men,” and CNN’s management endorsed his statement.  Again, if this surprised you, you need to pay closer attention.
  • It was the week we discovered that MSNBC’s Katy Tur is, um, geographically-challenged:

  • It was the week that CNN morning host Alyisin Camerota’s tiny little brain exploded when a guest didn’t follow the narrative:

  • It was the week that fake pollsters, on the same day in Arizona, gave us results that said Democrat Kyrsten Sinema was leading by 4 points and Republican Martha McSally was leading by 7.  And some of you wonder why I have a negative view of our nation’s polling industry.
  • It was the week that the editorial board at the Houston Chronicle beclowned itself by endorsing Irish Bob O’Rourke in his race against Ted Cruz because O’Rourke plays well with others.  *sigh*
  • It was the week that this happened:

There was so much more, but I’m running out of energy here.  After all, I’m not a 72 year-old guy who works for free.
That is all.

Refugees From Central America or From California – Pick Your Poison

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Well, it took about a year longer than I figured it would, but hey, NBC has very low standards for their on-air talent. – Megyn Kelly appears to have been canned by NBC on Thursday for having violated the rules of political correctness on her extremely low-rated morning program on Tuesday.  The fake news network had been casting around for a good reason to eat the remaining tens of millions left on Kelly’s hilariously-unjustified $69 milllion contract, and she finally provided them with a good enough excuse.

As a refugee from Fox News, and an imperious and obnoxious one at that, Kelly was roundly detested by basically everyone she came into contact with at NBC, and thus had no internal support base to defend her when she made her remarks on Tuesday, which basically amounted to “it was ok for a white kid to dress up as Dianna Ross for Halloween when I was a kid.”

To be clear, not it wasn’t.  Megyn Kelly was a kid in the Albany area of New York in the 1970s and 1980s, and no, it was not ok in the 1980s to put black-face makeup on your white kid and dress them up in an afro and sparkly dress and try to pass her off as Dianna Ross.  That stuff all went out the window in the late 1960s, along with re-runs of Amos ‘n Andy and Jim Crow laws.

Kelly issued a tearful on-air apology on her Wednesday show, which would have been enough for any of the other on-air “talent” at NBC, but could never be enough for someone known to harbor – gasp! – conservative points of view.  Plus, her show was a disaster from day one, so NBC grabbed the excuse to get her off the air and out of its hair.

I do not feel even a little bit of sympathy for Kelly, who is one of the most over-rated people I’ve ever observed in any profession.  But everyone should understand that her treatment by NBC right now is completely biased and unfair.  If NBC wanted to simply fire her because her program is a dumpster fire, that would be totally justified, because that is absolutely the case.  But firing her for making an admittedly stupid on-air comment for which literally no one else at NBC would be fired is wrong.

The truth is that Kelly’s biggest mistake – her “original sin” in NBC’s eyes – was not becoming a wild-eyed leftist on-air when she moved to NBC so she would fit in with all the other on-air talent.  That’s what Alisyn Camerota did when she moved from Fox News to CNN, and she is completely ensconced as the permanent host of a morning show over there that no one watches.  Camerota could say exactly what Kelly said and no one would blink an eye.  Why?  Because she is always mindlessly leftwing in her views, always adheres strictly to the daily DNC talking points, and thus no one at CNN would ever think of her ever intentionally being politically incorrect.

Dang, have I really just written 550 words about Megyn Kelly?  Enough.  Let’s move on.

Speaking of refugees, isn’t it amazing how the fake news media has stopped speaking of them? – Seriously, the obviously-staged “migrant caravan” that had been almost the sole focus of our fake news media for 10 solid days suddenly disappeared from our TV screens entirely yesterday in favor of the incredible un-explosive pipe bomb story.  Funny how that happens, huh?

Well, the “caravan” is still there, still heading up the western side of Mexico, the “refugees” still getting coached about what to say by their Democrat organizers for when they arrive at the U.S. border.  The current size of the caravan is variously estimated to be 3,600 by the Mexican government, 7,000 or 14,000, depending on which fake news media source you wish to believe.  In fact, the Mexican government claimed yesterday that something around 1,500 of the “refugees” who are supposedly fleeing “gangs” in their home country of Honduras have sought and been granted asylum in the gang-dominated failed state of Mexico.  Go figure.

We’re almost two weeks into this story and we have yet to see one single, solitary Democrat express the desire to protect our nation’s sovereign right to decide who we allow to come into our country.  Not one.  Think about that:  I just showed you a video in Monday’s Update of Barack Hussein Obama aggressively expressing his view in 2005 that the U.S. must control illegal immigration.  That’s just 13 years ago, and you can go out to YouTube and see similar videos of luminaries like Harry Reid, Hillary Clinton, Bill Clinton, Dianne Feinstein and Chuck Schumer saying the same things.

That was, of course, before the elevation of Obama to the presidency and the reorganization of the entire Democrat Party on Saul Alinsky Rules for Radicals principles.  Today, instead of pretending to be the protectors of working class Americans, the Democrats favor opening up our borders completely in order to create as much societal chaos as possible and in the belief that these millions of people fleeing failed socialist states will come into America and continue favoring the same failed socialist policies because that is all they know.  They’re probably right, and if they can ever succeed in getting all these millions of illegal aliens voting rights, the Democrats could once again become our dominant political party and implement their long-desired socialist nirvana that would completely destroy America as we know it.

Hell, they’re already making progress in that regard just from all the Californian refugees that have relocated to other states in the past 20 years.  Look around the country right now and you see all these tight races in states like Montana, Nevada, Arizona and Colorado, states that had been reliably “red” states that are now on the verge of turning completely blue.  They also happen to be states that have had large influxes of citizens fleeing the socialist nirvana of California in recent years.

In their political behavior, Californians are no different from these Central American refugees:  They flee their home state due to the high taxes and brutal regulations implemented by the socialist government there which have made it incredibly hard for middle class Americans to make a living, own a home and live a semi-free life.  But, when they arrive in their new state, they just keep on voting for the same Democrat types who created all the governmental chaos that led them to flee in the first place.

That is how you get a down-the-line leftwinger like Montana’s Jon Tester, one of Chuck Schumer’s most reliable votes, positioned to possibly win re-election against a pretty strong Republican candidate.  It’s how you get to the point where the voters in Colorado are about to slit their own economic wrists by passing a ballot initiative that would basically outlaw drilling for incredibly abundant oil and gas reserves there.  It’s how you get a limp-wristed jerk like Jeff Flake representing Arizona, and a neck-and-neck race between a strong GOP candidate who is a true American hero and a radical leftist Democrat who has no real qualifications for the job to take Flake’s place.

Thus, while Democrats everywhere are anxious as they can be to let as many illegals as they possibly can from Central America and all other failed socialist states into our country, the reality is that they are already beginning to achieve their goals simply by continuing to destroy California’s middle class and forcing it to move to other states.  It’s one of the great ironies of our time.

Maybe it is time for leaders in these other states to force anyone moving to their state from California to spend time in some sort of re-education facility before joining the general population.  These people obviously need some de-programming to get the California mindset out of them so that they can become actual productive members of society again.  Call it a matter of self-preservation.

That is all.

When Migrants are Really Crisis Actors, All Hell Tends to Break Loose

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Pretty sure this girl just isn’t right in the head.  – Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the mental midget Democrat who is going to represent the Bronx in congress after this election, is back in the news for saying something incredibly stupid again.  Because of course she is.

At a campaign event on Friday, Ms. Cortez advocated we mobilize our entire economy to fight “global warming” (she doesn’t even know that the scammers want her to call it “climate change” these days) because it is an “existential threat” just like the NazisI swear I don’t make this stuff up:

“So, when we talk about existential threats,” said Ocasio Cortez, “the last time we had a really major existential threat in this country was around World War II…And what we did was that we chose to mobilize and industrialize our entire economy and we put hundreds of thousands if not millions of people to work in defending our shores and defending this country. We have to do the same thing in order to get us to 100% renewable energy, and that’s just the truth of it.”

“None of these things are new ideas,” Ocasio-Cortez continued. “What we had was an existential threat in the context of a war. We had a direct existential threat with another nation, this time it was Nazi Germany, and axis, who explicitly made the United States as an enemy, as an enemy.”

The truly frightening part of this is not Ms. Cortez, who is just the latest Democrat mind filled with mush spouting highly confusing talking points written for her by someone else, although she does sprinkle them with an awful lot of “likes” and “you knows”.  No, the really frightening part of it is that room was filled with a bunch of Democrat voters nodding their heads at every mindless word and saying “uh-huh.  She’s right!”.  Sheesh.

And speaking of existential threats… – Phillip Reines, a spokesman hack for the Pantsuit Princess, says there’s a non-zero chance that his career criminal boss might make yet another run for the presidency in 2020.  I kid you not:

“It’s curious why Hillary Clinton’s name isn’t in the mix—either conversationally or in formal polling—as a 2020 candidate,” he told told Politico. “She’s younger than Donald Trump by a year. She’s younger than Joe Biden by four years. Is it that she’s run before? This would be Bernie Sanders’ second time, and Biden’s third time. Is it lack of support? She had 65 million people vote for her.”

Reines was referring to a poll released earlier this week that showed Biden and the Commie as the two leading contenders for the 2020 Democrat nomination, but left the Coughing Crook out of the mix.  That obviously was just wishful thinking on the part of the pollster who no doubt was thinking “surely this crazy, despicable woman won’t drag the country through all her sleaze yet again.”

Yeah, he was probably wrong about that.  Looks like we’ll have the Fainting Felon to kick around one more time.  Hooboy.

When refugees are really crisis actors, all hell tends to break loose. – A parade of 4,000 supposed “refugees” from Honduras and Guatemala that has supposedly spent the last week walking up through Central America arrived at Mexico’s southern border on Friday.  There, they clashed with Mexican national police who were waiting to confront them only because President Donald Trump had pressured the Mexican government to prevent what the fake news media is calling a “caravan of migrants” from transiting the length of Mexico.

On Thursday, President Trump hinted that he has information indicating this “migrant caravan” is not exactly what it seems:  “We’re starting to find out, and I won’t say 100 percent, I’ll put a little tiny question mark at the end … but a lot of money has been passing through people to come up and try to get to the border by election day,” Trump said during his campaign rally in Montana. Indeed, earlier that day, videos emerged of men walking among the mob of people handing out cash money to each and every one of them.

Now, take a close look at the people in photo above. What is the most remarkable thing about these people, who have supposedly spent the last week walking hundreds of miles without shelter or money?  Isn’t it that they are all healthy-looking, all well-fed-looking, all freshly-bathed with clean clothes and even fresh haircuts?  Seriously, some hair stylist is making a mint with these folks.  Do these look like “refugees” who have spent the last week at the mercy of the elements as they trudge up through Central America?

Ask yourselves: Who is paying the bills for all of this?  Keeping 4,000 people fed, bathed, clothed and sheltered for a week would cost hundreds of thousands, if not millions, of dollars.  But we are supposed to believe that these are just a bunch of harmless, destitute refugees.

Who were the people filmed handing out cash money to all 4,000 of these “migrants” on Thursday working for? Who stands to benefit from the utter chaos this caravan would create at our southern border had President Trump not prevailed upon the Mexican government to force them to turn around, especially if they arrived there just before Election Day?

Our fake news media will never ask these questions, but the answer is obvious, and I shouldn’t have to spell it out for you.  This is not a bunch of “refugees”, not a bunch of “peaceful migrants”.  Some, if not all of them are in fact professional crisis actors and professional agitators, which would explain why, when confronted by the Mexican police at the border, a riot broke out. When have we ever seen a group of peaceful, desperate “migrants” do that?

This is exactly the kind of violence that the organizers of this “caravan” obviously hoped would break out once this bunch reached the Rio Grande.  Tailor made video for the U.S. fake news media to flash up on our TV screens 24 hours a day on the weekend prior to Election Day.

Vote Republican on Election Day. This is the easiest choice we’ve ever had.

That is all.

While the Fake News Media Focuses on Flag Etiquette, Trump Keeps Winning

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

But…but…but…all the “smart” people at CNN and the NYTimes assured me this could not happen. – When President Donald Trump (I never tire of typing those three words) announced on Monday that his administration had reached a new trade agreement with Mexico that would replace NAFTA, he didn’t leave the accurate reporting of it to the whims of the fake news media.  Knowing that if he just made a statement about his final call with Mexico’s President Enrique Pena Nieto to seal the deal, he would soon be facing anonymously-sourced fake news stories from CNN and the New York Times claiming that he insulted Mr. Nieto or his wife, or perhaps his dog, the President chose a different approach:  He simply invited the White House press corps into the Oval Office to listen to his call with Nieto live, as it took place.

Thus, fake news averted, for the most part, although fake news outlets like Reuters managed to report on the deal while leaving out mention of the most key parts of it, such as the new requirement that manufacturers of automobiles and other hard products in Mexico give their workers collective bargaining rights for the first time.  Another critical provision, that 45% of auto parts made in Mexico must be made by workers earning at least $16 per hour, also received short shrift from the fakest fake news outlets like CNN and the Times.

These toady outlets for the Democrat Party are loath to accurately report on these aspects of the new deal since they represent gigantic wins for America’s blue collar workers, workers who were just a few years ago a major cog in the Democrat Party’s voter base.  Under this new agreement, those workers will no longer have to compete with Mexican workers making $1 per hour in order to hold onto their jobs.

Interestingly, as I type this piece this morning, Fox News is airing a clip of then-candidate Barack Hussein Obama, in a Democrat primary debate on August 7, 2007, advocating for exactly the reforms to NAFTA that are contained in this new agreement, in order to “protect American workers.”  Thus does Donald Trump not only keep his own campaign promises, he keeps the promises made – and broken – by America’s Biggest Mistake.

WINNING WINNING WINNING WINNING WINNING WINNING. – The markets kind of liked the news of the agreement with Mexico.  The NASDAQ went berserk, closing above the 8,000 mark for the first time ever.  The S&P 500 also closed at a record high of 2,896, while the Dow Jones Industrial average gained 259 points to close above 26,000 for the first time since February 1.

Democrats and fake journalists all across America fell into fits of depression at this happy news for everyone else.

This is Donald Trump, preparing to make like Teddy Roosevelt. – A few weeks ago, the Campaign Update focused on how President Trump might conduct a new strategy for his second two years in office should the Democrats gain control of one or both houses of congress in the upcoming midterm elections.  The piece, titled “Trump’s Post-Midterm Move:  Make Like Teddy Roosevelt”, posited that a Donald Trump faced with a hostile congress that would stonewall any new legislation might decide to focus on using the powers of his office and regulatory agencies to rein in the abuses of social media giants like Facebook, Twitter and Google, which are without question today’s version of the industrial “trusts” that Mr. Roosevelt faced down and broke up at the turn of the 20th century.

This wasn’t just mere speculation on my part:  It’s a well-educated guess based on the President’s past statements and demeanor in office thus far.  This morning, Mr. Trump gave us a preview of potential coming attractions via his Twitter feed:

Over the past couple of weeks, the President has also fired similar shots across the bows of Facebook and Twitter.  As the Campaign Update has pointed out many times over the past 20 months, Mr. Trump doesn’t just burp these tweets out between sips of Diet Coke for no reason.  Every tweet he sends is sent for a tactical purpose, and many turn out to be stage-setters for actions he plans to take.

The powers of the presidency, when focused by an extremely strong personality like Donald Trump, can be a very daunting opponent for even the most gigantic corporation to face off with.  Standard Oil learned this lesson the hard way about 115 years ago.  The creeps who have set themselves up as the arbiters of free speech and restricters of the public’s right to know at these social media giants might want to start paying attention to the messages they are being sent by this particular President and start adjusting their practices accordingly.

But they won’t.

Just another day in fake news media and abusive social media America.

That is all.

Rudy Giuliani Drops a big bad Bomb, Media Pretends not to Notice

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

When Donald Trump tweets, people listen. – Let’s just start this one off right with a couple of hilariously on-point missives from his Twitter feed this morning:

For those wondering what’s prompting the President’s ire, the famously pro-open borders Koch Brothers have recently been threatening to offer financial support to Democrats in certain congressional races where the Republicans have Trump’s endorsement.  Charles Koch, speaking to the media over the weekend, said “I don’t care what initials are in front or after somebody’s name.”

To emphasize their point, leaders of the Kochs’ campaign funding organization, Americans for Prosperity, announced that they will not support Republican Kevin Cramer in his effort to unseat incumbent U.S. Senator Heidi Heitcamp in North Dakota.

Tim Phillips, head of AFP, told the group’s meeting that “He’s not leading on the issues this country needs leadership most right now,” specifically citing spending and trade, where the Kochs hate the President’s efforts to renegotiate all the nation’s terrible trade deals. “If Cramer doesn’t step up to lead, that makes it hard to support him.”

Thus, the Koch brothers, who have spent the last 20 years being heinously vilified by the despicable political left and our fake news media, suddenly find themselves becoming the left’s new political darlings.  Funny how that works.

They should be careful, though.  The President is correct when he says that he has “beaten them at every turn,” one of the main reasons why he holds the most powerful office in the world.  The Kochs’ new allies on the political left hold no such power or anything close to it.  Food for thought.

She finally found a place where she truly fits in. – Just wanted to share this hilarious meme found on Twitter yesterday:

Oh, hey, there’s another Trump tweet:

When you think about Mexico, envision the South Side of Chicago spread over an entire country 2/3rds the size of the continental United States.  That’s what we have on our Southern border today, and the Democrat Party and the Koch brothers couldn’t care less.  As the President would say:  #Sad!

Wait.  Rudy just said what??? – So, we had two items of news on Monday that most likely did not mean anything like what your fake news media said they meant.

First was the news that New York Times Publisher Arthur Sulzberger rushed over the White House on Sunday to meet with President Trump about his ongoing targeting of the Times and other news outlets as “fake news” and “enemies of the people.”

Second were two interviews given by Trump lawyer Rudy Giuliani, in which the ex- New York City Mayor said many things, but the one thing the fake media focused on was Guiliani’s repeated statement that “collusion is not a crime.”  Interestingly, the first Giuliani interview took place in real time with the Sulzberger meeting at the White House.

I’m going to tell you that the media’s focus on Giuliani’s “collusion is not a crime” contention is simply a diversion tactic from what’s really going on here.  Prominent people have been making that very point for more than a year now, including constitutional scholars like Harvard Prof. Alan Dershowitz and George Washington University Law Prof. Jonathan Turley.  It is simple fact that the word “collusion” does not appear anywhere in the U.S. criminal code.  Period, end of discussion.

Thus, all the fake media focus on that specific statement by Rudy is an obvious dodge, meant to deflect public attention away from the truly astounding bit of information that America’s Mayor tossed out as casually as could be:  that the weaselly ex-Trump lawyer Michael Cohen made a habit of recording his conversations with prominent people in the fake news media throughout 2016 and 2017, and “dozens” of recordings of said conversations are now in the hands of the Justice Department.

More to the point, those recordings were also all shared with the President and his lawyers in recent weeks as they deliberated over whether or not to waive executive privilege for their use against Cohen, which they ultimately did.

But it gets better.

In a second interview with the eternally dim CNN fake host Alisyn Camerota Monday morning, Rudy expanded the universe of those recordings to include Cohen conversations not just with reporters, but with “media executives”!

Uh, ‘executives’ like Arthur Sulzberger, the Publisher of the New York Times, as an example?

Gulp.

Still think Sulzberger was at the White House Sunday morning to talk about presidential tweets?  I don’t.

Just another day in panicked, deflecting fake news media America.

That is all.

This was not the plan for the Fake News Media. Oh, no – not even close.

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

This was not the plan for the fake news media.  Oh, no – not even close.  Part I – President Donald Trump held another of his raucous rallies in South Carolina on Monday, this one in support of the re-election of Governor Henry McMaster, and things just did not go well, not well at all for CNN’s poor little Jim Acosta.

First, well before the evening’s program got underway, Acosta was, ahem, ‘accosted’ by someone’s great-grandmother, an older lady who decided it would be fun to hang out near the CNN position waaaayyyyy at the back of the hall and repeatedly shout “get him out!  get him out!”  You know, the kind of behavior that CNN loves to award copious amounts of air time whenever it comes from anyone on the political left.

Things just got worse for the little fake reporter when he went on-air for a live shot at his seditious network.  As Acosta went into his standard, tiresome anti-Trump screed, the crowd erupted with chants of “Go home, Jim!” and “CNN go home!”  Then, to top things off, one enterprising guy got close enough to get his “CNN Sucks” sign into the shot, and remained in the shot on live CNN feed for a good 15 seconds.

Of course, since these were Trump supporters and not professional leftwing agitators, this was all in good fun.  No one was threatened, no one was assaulted, no one was harmed, and many in the crowd actually came over to Acosta and other members of the press to take selfies and get autographs.  Because these people are Americans who love America, not a bunch of paid agitators.

But, well, CNN does suck, and Acosta is one of the main reasons why.

 

This was not the plan for the fake news media.  Oh, no – not even close.  Part II –Hey, check out this tweet from ABC News and the film embedded in it:

You know what that is?  That is President Donald J. Trump forcing the unwilling fake journalists at ABC to accidentally cover what is actually happening every hour of every day along our country’s border with Mexico.  That report actually aired on ABC’s prime time newscast, something the network would have never dreamed of airing just two weeks ago.

Here are other long-ignored border-related issues that the fake news media has accidentally been forced to cover in its efforts to support its Democrat wards on this fake “don’t separate the families!” issue:

  • Child trafficking and human smuggling;
  • Sex slavery, often involving young children;
  • Mexican gang warfare, often taking place north of the border;
  • How deeply these gangs, including MS13, have infiltrated our nation’s cities;
  • How woefully under-staffed our Border Patrol is;
  • The fact that 4 out of 5 of the kids in these holding centers are unaccompanied minors;

This list of border issues long ignored by the fake news media because they reflect badly on their political wards could go on and on.  If you are wondering why this issue is polling horribly for the Democrats, this is why:  Millions of Americans who stupidly depend on the major TV networks and CNN for their “news” have learned about the issues above for the first time over the past two weeks.

And then, of course, there’s Maxine Waters.  The Braying Buffoon has gone and gotten herself in a pickle with her clear incitements to violence over the weekend.  The ugly film of her repugnant screams has done irreparable damage to the increasingly depraved and despicable Democrat Party, and will no doubt provide dozens of Republican congressional candidates with fodder for extremely effective campaign ads in the Fall.

How bad is it for the Dems, you ask?  It’s so bad that both Chuck Schumer and San Fran Nan felt the need to repudiate Waters’ actions on Monday.  Schumer did so directly with a speech on the Senate floor, and Pelosi did it indirectly in a tweet, because that’s the kind of political coward she truly is.

Trust me on this, folks:  Neither Schumer nor Pelosi would have said a damn thing about the Mad Maxine incitements unless they had received some extremely negative polling and/or focus grouping information.  Those are the only things that motivate any Democrat politician to do anything.  Well, other than money.

Before any of you goes and gives these two slimeballs any credit at all for doing the right thing here, you need to remember that they and their silence are the main reasons why we have arrived at this point to begin with.  These two and every other leader in the Democrat Party have remained disgracefully silent through 20 months of riots, violent protests, public assaults on Trump supporters, public assaults on Trump officials, spying on Trump and his people by the FBI and a trumped-up Special Counsel witch hunt, all of which have combined to create the current toxic atmosphere in our public discourse.

Had either of these two clowns, or Hillary Clinton or Barack Obama or even Bernie Sanders had the personal integrity to speak out and condemn the rising violence and anti-social behavior on the political left since Election Day 2016, things would have immediately calmed down.  But they all – every one of them – bought into the “Resistance” and adopted it as their Party’s sole platform for the 2018 elections.

They all remained silent because, hey, this was the plan.  It’s been the plan all along, and save for the situations in which an idiotic rant by the Braying Buffoon costs them in the polls, it will remain the plan going forward for one simple reason:  The Democrat Party is bankrupt of ideas.

Think about it:  Everything the Democrat Party has stood for during the Obama Administration has been revealed to have been a lie.  The “new normal” of less than 2% economic growth?  A lie.  If you like your plan you can keep your plan?  A lie.  The Paris Climate Accords?  A pathetic lie.  You can’t just wave a magic wand and make those manufacturing jobs reappear?  A pathetic lie.  It’s impossible to root out ISIS?  A disgraceful lie.  We can’t drill our way to energy security?  A laughable lie.  The Iran deal?  A despicable lie.  You can’t talk to North Korea and get anything out of it?  A disgusting lie.  Open borders are good for the country?  A nation-ending lie.

These are desperate people now, because nothing they do works.  President Trump’s polling numbers have actually risen over the past two weeks amid all the fake hysteria about the border.  They are utterly shocked by this and have no idea what to do to change the dynamic.

Thus, they will do what they’ve done for the last 20 months:  Gradually try to drop this subject and move on to another faked-up scandal.  Because that really is all they got.

Just another day in November is going to be a Red Wave wipeout America.

That is all.

Mexico’s Next President Promises to Make Our Immigration Problems Exponentially Worse

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Tired of all this Winning yet? – JSW Steel announced a $500 million investment in the revitalization of the Acero Junction facility located in Mingo Junction, Ohio.  Faced with the possibility of import tariffs being implemented by the Trump Administration, JSW chose to make this massive investment in America rather than construct an entirely new plant in India.

“The Trump administration was the driver behind giving us in the U.S. the ability to compete for capital,” JSW Steel USA CEO John Hritz said during a First on FOX Business interview with Edward Lawrence on Thursday.  “We are going to revitalize that facility and that entire community.”  Other than the story linked here and a couple of other web-based reports, the fake news media completely ignored what would have been a major and extremely rare story during the Obama Administration.

Leftists hate you and want to take your freedoms away, Part 9,885. – Donny Deutsch, the hair jelled-up metrosexual doofus who for some reason appears on Morning Joe each morning, told the show’s puny audience on Friday that Trump supporters are “like Nazis” and encouraged leftwing agitators like Antifa to target such supporters rather than the President himself.

“What has to happen now is this can no longer be about who Trump is, it has to be about who we are if we’re working towards November,” he said. “We can no longer say Trump’s the bad guy. If you vote for Trump, you’re the bad guy. If you vote for Trump, you, not Trump, are standing at the border like Nazis saying ‘you here’, ‘you here.'”

So our fake news media has invented this border issue out of whole cloth, taking a standard process of  temporarily separating illegal alien parents from minors that is common practice in Canada and most other free nations and portraying it as the return of concentration camps – as I predicted they would back in December 2016.  They and their Democrat wards have now spent the last week becoming increasingly shrill and at times violent in an effort to turn this situation into an election-impacting issue, in keeping with the Saul Alinsky Rules for Radicals playbook that they religiously follow in their daily lives.

With a raft of late-week polls showing they are failing in this effort, mental midgets like Deutsch get frustrated and resort to just lashing out at anyone they can think to demonize, which is of course the clearest sign we can have that the bad people are losing the issue.  The Democrat/Media propaganda complex will continue trying to keep the issue alive for awhile longer, but it’s a loser for them because most Americans do not want the completely open, unregulated borders that is always the goal of the American left.  So you can bet they’re already getting ready go to the next page in their playbook and drum up a new fake issue starting next week.

So predictable.  So tiresome.  So utterly un-American.  That’s who these people are.

And hey, they have a new hero who is about to become President in Mexico.  Isn’t that wonderful?

Yes, friends, Andrés Manuel López Obrador, or “AMLO” as his supporters like to call him, is going to be elected the next President of Mexico come July 1.  AMLO is a 64 year-old leftist radical who has been bouncing around the Mexican political scene for 40 years, just waiting for the moment to arrive when he can seize power and turn our neighbor to the South into another banana republic in the style of Castro’s Cuba and Maduro’s collapsing Venezuela.  That time has now arrived, as AMLO is so far ahead of his pathetic opponents in recent polls that the vote is a foregone conclusion.

So if you think the problem of illegal immigration is bad now, just wait until this nutjob assumes office come December 1.  By this time next year, unless congress acts (which is like expecting your cat to scrub your toilets) we are going to be in the midst of a REAL humanitarian crisis down in the Rio Grande Valley of Texas, not some fake crisis made up by the fake news media.

And yes, you can quote me on that, because this is not speculation, it is an inevitability that AMLO is literally promising to create in his campaign speeches.  You don’t have to believe me, just check out these quotes from a speech this week that were reported by the Daily Caller on Friday:

“And soon, very soon — after the victory of our movement — we will defend all the migrants in the American continent and all the migrants in the world,” Obrador said, adding that immigrants “must leave their towns and find a life in the United States.”

He then declared it as “a human right we will defend,” eluniversal.com reports.

For all you Morning Joe viewers, Pantsuit Princess fans and Bernie Sanders sycophants out there, this is what any sane country would treat as an outright declaration of war.  This is a promise to not just do nothing to prevent the illegal migration of Mexican and Central American citizens across the border into the United States – which is what the current and past Mexican regimes have done – this is an open commitment to literally cause and lead an overt, intentional invasion of the Southwestern United States.

AMLO’s long-stated ultimate goal will be to overwhelm the social and political systems in the southwestern U.S. and, once that is accomplished – no doubt with the willing assistance of the Democrat Party and our fake national news media – begin a massive transfer of American wealth into Mexico.  AMLO’s leftist policies will inevitably decimate the Mexican economy and turn the country into a Venezuela-style failed state, and he’s ok with that.  Because that is the best way to encourage millions of Mexico’s citizens to attempt to flood across the border with the United States.

This is not a conspiracy theory;  this is not paranoia.  This is AMLO’s plan, a plan that he has publicly laid out a thousand times during a 40-year political career, a plan that Univision fake news anchor Jorge Ramos was applauding and supporting on Tucker Carlson’s Fox News show Thursday evening.

Here’s the thing:  It’s not just the Democrats who don’t give a damn about this, Paul Ryan and Mitch McConnell and the rest of the establishment Republicans in congress don’t give a damn about it either.  So get ready, because your government isn’t going to do a damn thing to stop it, other than whatever President Trump is able to do through executive action.

Just another day in this immigration problem is going to get exponentially worse America.

That is all.
