Booker Exits and Trump Delivers Another Kill Shot

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

Those racist Democrat voters just eliminated another protected minority candidate. – A year ago today, the conventional wisdom among the D.C./New York City pundit class held that the Democrat 2020 presidential nomination would most likely end up being won by one of Kamala Harris, Irish Bob O’Rourke or Cory Booker. As of today, all three formerly leading candidates are out of the race with the announcement Monday morning that Booker is done.

Yeah, the Senator from New Jersey only officially announced he was “suspending” his campaign, but c’mon, we all know he’s done, and so does he. And thus, those racist Democrat voters eliminate another protected minority candidate in their zeal to ensure the nomination goes to either an elderly, pasty-white male, or a female fake Indian.

The past 45 days or so have seen the elimination of the field’s fake Hispanic – Irish Bob, aka, Beto – its only actual Hispanic – Julian Castro – and both of its African American candidates – Harris and Booker. Their exits leaves Andrew Yang and Tulsi Gabbard, both of whom have a hard time breaking 3% in national polling, as the only remaining ethnic minority candidates. Let’s face it: Neither Asians nor Hawaiians are exactly seen a sympathetic figures among the Democrat Party’s identity-politics-prone voter base.

[Edit: Someone just reminded me that ex-Mass. Gov. Deval Patrick is still in the race, but that’s like saying the Cleveland Browns are still a football team. But ok, whatever.]

Here’s reality: There are four candidates in this race who have any real shot at ultimately becoming the nominee:

  • All four are as white as the driven snow.
  • All four are at least 70 years of age.
  • Three are 77 years old or older.
  • The youngest among them is a woman who lied about being an American Indian throughout her adult life in order to land plum jobs, licenses and certifications.

That’s it. None of the other candidates have any chance whatsoever.

If this attrition of minority candidates, some of whom were media favorites to actually come away with the nomination, were taking place in a Republican nominating campaign, the corrupt news media would pound away at the “racism,” “sexism,” and any other “-isms” they could think of, 24 hours a day, 7 days every week. But because this is the Democrat Party’s nominating race, all we get is cover pieces for Quid Pro Joe and his looting of Ukraine, analysis pieces that attempt to disguise Bernie Sanders’ communist background, misdirection pieces that attempt to cover for the lifetime of fraud by Faucahontas, and tortured camera angles attempting to make Mike Bloomberg look taller than he actually is.

So tiresome and corrupt.

Hey, speaking of Mike Bloomberg, look who he has been photographed several times paling around with:

Image may contain: 2 people, people smiling, people standing, suit and night

That’s right: Ghislain Maxwell, the alleged procurer of under-age girls for pedophile Jeffrey Epstein (who most certainly did not kill himself). Why does this not surprise us? Not even a little bit?

Early Monday morning, President Donald Trump (I still never tire of typing those three glorious words and never will) hit Mr. Excitement with one of his trademark kill shots, tagging the former New York Mayor and his little boy suit with a new nickname:

“Mini Mike B.” That’s gonna sting.

That is all.

Three Weeks to Iowa: The State of the Democrat Clown Show

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

What will we do without Marianne Williamson in the race? – The new age guru – whatever that actually means – and fantastic dancer and debater ended her doomed-to-fail campaign on Friday, and hardly anyone noticed. Kind of like when radical Texan Julian Castro ended his campaign back in late December…or maybe it was early January, I forget which and don’t care enough to go look it up.

So, the protected minority candidates keep on dropping out and the pasty old geriatric white males keep movin’ on up in the Democrat field.  How old is the Democrat field? Take a look at this photo:

That’s former Nebraska Senator Bob Kerrey. Sen. Kerrey is a Medal of Honor winner who was briefly a leading Democrat candidate for the party’s 1992 nomination, which was of course ultimately won lifelong fraud Bill Clinton. Because of course it was.

That was 28 years ago, when Kerrey was 49 years old. Today, 28 years and 7 presidential election cycles later, Kerrey is still younger than 3 of the 5 leading contenders for the Party’s 2020 nomination. This is your Democrat Party, circa 2020.

The leader in the national polls in the race to see who will lose miserably to President Donald Trump in November remains the nation’s Unfrozen Caveman Senator, Quid Pro Joe Biden. This is a guy who just secured the endorsement of Eric Garcetti, the Mayor of Los Angeles, on a day when he thought for sure he was in Toledo, Ohio.

Joe Biden is so old that he first got elected to the U.S. Senate around the time that Jimmy Hoffa was murdered by the mob. Interestingly, if you watched the 3 and a half-hour film “The Irishman” recently and thought it was overly-long, consider this: The film’s executive producer and director, Martin Scorsese, decided to leave out the part of the biographical book it is based upon (“I Heard You Paint Houses” by Charles Brandt) that details how the same mob figure, Frank Sheeran, who claims to have killed Hoffa actually also says that he helped Biden win that first Senate campaign in 1972.

Yeah, there’s a whole chapter about that in the book, which I read in 2018, long before this film came about. Sheeran claims that the mob-controlled truckers union refused to deliver newspapers in Delaware containing full-page ads for Biden’s opponent, incumbent Republican J. Caleb Boggs, during the weeks leading up to that election day in 1972. Biden ended up winning that Delaware senate race by just 3,200 votes.

Hey, Biden always said he was a union guy!

Isn’t it interesting that the makers of a film as long as “The Godfather” decided to cut that chapter out of all the chapters in the book? But hey, that’s how the incestuous Democrat/Hollywood alliance works. Just ask Harvey Weinstein and Kevin Spacey and all the supposedly abused actors and actresses who offered them both so much public praise over the last 25 years and have now gone silent about them.

So, there he is, ladies and gentlemen: Joe Biden, your leader in the Democrat race. This 77 year-old likely dementia-sufferer is the guy who the similarly demented Democrat voter base thinks is the most “electable” person in the field. Whew.

Next up is the even-older-than-Biden Commie, Bernie Sanders, who is running a fairly strong second in the national polls but leading now in both Iowa and New Hampshire. Oh, golly, think of the momentum the Commie will generate should he win both of those early contests. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez will be all like, totes excited and stuff, or something, should that happen.

Sanders’ big problem is that he just has a very low ceiling, with his main appeal being to the least reliable and most ignorant voters in the Democrat base: College students. The Commie’s support drops off dramatically as you go up the voter age chart, and the old folks are the most reliable voters in the country. Still, with the Democrats’ new system of proportionally rewarding delegates in each primary contest, the Commie remains a real threat to accumulate a lot of delegates, just as he did in 2016.

Then you have Fauxcahontas, clearly the single most blatant life-long fraud in the race, which I keep thinking means she will ultimately end up winning it. Little Princess Gonna Take All Your Wampum had a significant boomlet during August and September, but ended up fading during the final three months of 2019 as she struggled to explain how she might pay for her $40 trillion “Medicare for all” scheme without raising taxes on anyone with less money than multi-billionaires Mike Bloomberg and Tom Steyer.

But she finally ended up landing on a talking point that basically says “hey, just trust me on this, since you know I’ve lied to you about every aspect of my personal life.” Which naturally worked with the demented Democrat voter base. So now she appears to be making a little comeback, polling second ahead of the Commie in the most recent national poll from Economist/YouGov, just 5 points behind Creepy Uncle Joe. I still think Warren, as the most obvious complete fraud in the race, is the most likely nominee here barring the entry of some other candidate, like Hillary Clinton, not currently in the race.

After those top 3, you have two more pasty white guys: Preacher Pete Buttigieg and Mr. Excitement, Mike Bloomberg.

Let’s be honest about Preacher Pete, shall we? He is not going anywhere in this race, and by that I mean he is not going anywhere outside of his 6-8% polling range in which he has been stuck since last June. No matter how much fawning press he receives, no matter how many bible verses he misquotes, no matter how many free, 2-hour-long town hall shows CNN gives him, this is where Preacher Pete is stuck, at least in the national polling. That is the extent of his national appeal.

He’s doing better than that in Iowa and New Hampshire, the two tiny states packed with self-loathing white middle-class socialist voters that lead things off. Preacher Pete might be able to crest that 15% minimum threshold required to be awarded some delegates in those two states. After that, his prospects quickly become paper-thin.

Mr. Excitement, meanwhile, has now spent over $200 million of his own money on this campaign to get himself up to about 6% in the national polls, just behind the Preacher. This is what Warren Buffet and the folks at Goldman Sachs would likely refer to as a “crappy investment,” but Bloomberg seems undeterred, having just shelled out another $10 million for a one-minute ad during the upcoming Super Bowl.

Mr. Excitement’s problems in this race are myriad, but the main one is that he is simply too genuine to appeal to enough demented Democrat voters to secure the nomination: Too genuinely short; too genuinely boring; too genuinely soft-spoken; too genuinely not prone to blatant lies about his background and family; too genuinely dedicated to banning 32 oz. soft drinks and cow farts.

This man clearly did not do his homework before entering this race – if he had, he would know that every Democrat presidential nomination since 1976 has been awarded by the Party’s demented voters to the single biggest lifelong fraud in the race. Plus, if he ever does manage to qualify for one of the monthly debates, he will simply bore the country to death. Mr. Excitement will not be the nominee.

After those five, the only other candidate in the race worth mentioning is Amy Klobuchar, who is polling fairly well in Iowa and New Hampshire. But “fairly well” means about 6%, and you have to win 15% of the actual vote to win any delegates. The chances of her breaking through with a truly strong finish in either state are basically nil, and the smart money is on her dropping out of the race after New Hampshire has come and gone.

Complicating all of this, of course, is that three of those six candidates mentioned – along with Cory Booker, another minority candidate who is going nowhere – are members of the U.S. Senate. They’re all about to have the privilege of spending virtually all of the rest of January sitting quietly in the Senate chamber for 10 hours a day, 6 days a week during the upcoming “trial” of President Trump. They have San Fran Nan to thank for that, since she’s the one who set up the timetable for all of this.

While the Commie and Fauxcahontas seem to be running strong in Iowa and New Hampshire now, what do you think will happen to their polling numbers when they disappear from those states for the 3 weeks leading up to the Iowa Caucuses?

Man, it’s almost as if San Fran Nan did this all intentionally to help Quid Pro Joe, isn’t it?

Bottom line: The more time goes on, the more likely an open convention becomes for this pathetic, despicable and disloyal political party.

Considering all of these factors and more that I don’t have time to detail here, these are my current odds on the ultimate winner of the Democrat 2020 presidential nomination:

Someone not currently in the race: EVEN

Fauxcahontas: 5 to 2

Biden: 3 to 1

The Commie: 5 to 1

Bloomberg: 20 to 1

Buttigieg: 100 to 1

The field: 1,000 to 1

 

That is all.

Bloomberg’s In! Sort of. Maybe.

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

Tired of all this #WINNING yet? – The Dow Jones Industrials and S&P 500 set new record high closes on Thursday amid very solid corporate earnings reports and optimism about an interim trade deal with China. The NASDAQ also had a gain for the day and closed at its second-highest level of all-time.

Despite all the howling from liberal “experts” that tariffs would destroy the market, the Dow is up by almost 11%, the S&P 500 by almost 14% and the NASDAQ by right at 16% since President Trump first announced tariffs on China in February 2018. Maybe it’s time to find some new “experts.”

Mayor Big Gulp dips his toe into the race. Will he go all-in? – Former New York City Mayor Mike Bloomberg, the billionaire professional nanny who famously outlawed the selling of sugary soft drinks in cups larger than 20 ounces, made the first move towards getting into the race for the 2020 Democrat nomination Thursday when he filed paperwork to get himself on the ballot in Alabama.

While most corrupt fake news media swooned hysterically at the prospect of another big Democrat hero entering the race, Tal Axelrod at The Hill got the story right in a piece headlined, “Bloomberg signals interest in entering presidential race.” Bloomberg is filing the paperwork in Alabama because it is the state with the earliest filing deadline. What he did yesterday was just a baby step towards getting ready to formally enter the race.

The ex-Mayor has not formed up a campaign committee, hired campaign staff or done any of the myriad other things anyone must do in order to mount a presidential campaign. He can do those things very quickly when he makes his final decision, since he, like Donald Trump, is a billionaire who can self-fund his own effort, but until he does those things, he’s just dipping his toe in the water.

Here’s a big catch with Mayor Bloomberg, though: At age 77, he is actually nine months older than the geriatric Joe Biden, who really does appear to be in a state of rapid mental decline. Bloomberg appears to be in much better physical and mental condition than Biden, but this is an extremely advanced age for a person seeking the presidency. Ronald Reagan, our oldest serving President in history, was 77 when he left office after 8 years on the job. Bloomberg would be 78 on his inauguration day.

Bloomberg will presumably base his campaign on an “I’m the one who isn’t batsh*t crazy” strategy, but as Joe Biden has discovered, that strategy has limited utility in a field crowded with various levels of Alinskyite/Marxist grifters. As of today, Biden, a massive front-runner just 6 months ago, finds himself running in 4th place in Iowa, a weak 2nd in New Hampshire, and clinging to an increasingly-tenuous lead in the national polls.

If you consider Preacher Pete Buttigieg to also not be batsh*t crazy, then as of today, in the RealClearPolitics average of national polls, the “I’m the one who isn’t batsh*t crazy” segment of the Democrat voter base amounts to just 35%. Add in Amy Klobuchar and you get to 37%. Tacking on Andrew Yang and Tulsi Gabbard gets you to 41%.

Now, Bloomberg presumably wants to just jump in and divvy up that minority pie even further, because it is a mistake to believe that Biden and/or Buttigieg are just going to throw up their hands and shout “no mas!” like Roberto Duran (you Millennials will have to Google that reference) just because some guy who hasn’t held elected office in six years is jumping in with a lot of media fanfare. Should Bloomberg actually fully enter the race, the most likely impact would be to end Biden’s status as the national front-runner and basically make it even less likely that any candidate in the field would be able to accumulate enough delegates during the primaries to win the nomination on the first ballot at next year’s convention.

You are going to see a lot of wild predictions from your fake news media today and over the weekend about Bloomberg somehow becoming an immediate front-runner in the race. But once all of that settles and Democrat voters start to see just how un-exciting this guy truly is, his most likely impact will be to simply muddle the picture further than it already is.

Meanwhile, the Fainting Felon sits out there in her wardrobe of pantsuits and hospital gowns, waiting to waltz in as the Party’s savior at a hung convention next summer.

You just could never make this stuff up, folks.

P.S.: If you really believe that Bloomberg actually isn’t batsh*t crazy, invest a couple of minutes in reviewing this clip from a September interview:

And just for your further edification, here are photos of Mr. Bloomberg paling around with Jeffrey Epstein’s partner, Ghislaine Maxwell:

Oh. The more you know…

That is all.

Why 2020 Will End With a Trump Landslide

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

Donald Trump is going to be re-elected in a landslide in 2020. In reality, the Democrats are behaving as if they already know their fate is basically sealed. That’s what all these congressional investigations are really all about – a panicked effort to keep portraying a duly-elected President as if he’s a criminal in the wake of the impending end of the failed Mueller Witch Hunt.

Those investigations will fail, just as Mueller has failed, to “get” the President, because the President is not a crook. Jerrold Nadler and his House Judiciary Committee sent out 81 subpoenas on Monday as the opening salvo in an effort to dummy up a case of “obstruction of justice” against Trump. This is a case that Mueller and his band of Clinton/Obama hacks has been trying to construct for almost two full years now, and utterly failed.

Are we really to believe that a congressional committee with far less investigatory power and fewer resources is going to be able to succeed where Mueller failed? Please.

In a few weeks, Bug-Eyed Adam Schiff and the Democrats on the House Intelligence Committee will be kicking off their own witch hunt effort to try to dummy up an “abuse of power” case against Mr. Trump. Mueller and his hacks have also gone down that road over the last 22 months and discovered a big, yellow “Dead End” sign.

Also along around the first of April, Elijah Cummings and the Dems on the House Oversight Committee will start their own witch hunt attempt to paste together a case on “public corruption.” Again, Mueller and his fellow American Gestapo members have been there, failed at that.

But the Democrats will go down these various dead-end paths anyway, and keep them all alive right through Election Day 2020 for one simple reason: President Donald Trump is running an extraordinarily successful presidency. The economy is humming, the stock market is booming, retirement funds are growing, ISIS has been utterly destroyed, and America is at relative peace in the world for really the first time in this century.

The Democrats hate all of that.

Even worse, the Trump presidency has been economically fantastic for Hispanic and Black Americans, with both demographic groups now experiencing all-time record low unemployment and high wage growth. The same is true for women, whether they realize it or not, and polls show Trump’s approval ratings rising among all those critical demographic groups.

So, the Democrats fully understand that they cannot run the 2020 campaign on issues and have any hope at all of winning. Thus, they devised this highly-coordinated plan of attack involving three House committees shortly after the 2018 election, exactly as they devised the whole “Russia Collusion” fairy tale in the days following the 2016 election.

Those of us who read Mollie Hemingway’s writings at The Federalist knew all this was coming last November 7, just three days after the election. That was when she posted her piece summarizing the conversation he had overheard Nadler loudly conducting in an Amtrak rail car they shared that day. This is all pre-planned, well-coordinated with key propagandists in our fake news media in order to ensure maximum coverage and reinforcement in traditional and social media.

This is who the Democrats are – it is what they spend pretty much all their waking hours doing. Nothing they do is about policy or what’s best for America or our people – everything they do is about the acquisition and maintenance of political power.

Here’s why none of this will work: Because the Democrats have no credibility with the public outside of their own, hate-blinded voter base. The three chairmen conducting these witch hunts – Nadler, Schiff and Cummings – are three of the most toxic partisan hacks in the entire congress.

Valid or not, Robert Mueller at least had the initial presumption of impartiality in the public’s mind, thanks to completely inaccurate and glowing media coverage. But these three Democrat thugs have already been written off by all but he most highly-partisan Democrat voters as having no credibility whatsoever.

Nothing any of these people say or “find” during the course of their witch hunts is going to have the slightest impact on the independent voters who really matter. To the contrary, those same independent voters will be driven away by the inevitable over-reaching and rank demagoguery to which various Democrat members of these committees will regularly resort. We already saw that happen in Cummings’ hearing with Michael Cohen.

All of which is why, as I told you way back in February 2017, Donald J. Trump is destined to be a two-term President, and a truly great President.

2020 is going to be a landslide.

That is all.
