Social Media Giants are a Threat to the Republic

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

You seriously cannot make this stuff up, folks. – Democrat activists in Hollywood are planning to release a movie in September in which Trumps supporters are dehumanized by being portrayed as no better than game animals to be hunted for sport by the nation’s “elite.” Breitbart reports that ESPN made the decision over the weekend to pull ads for the film, uncreatively titled “The Hunt,” from its dying channel over the weekend in the wake of the mass shootings in El Paso and Dayton.

This film is an obvious, blatant dog-whistle attempt by Hollywood’s ruling leftist community to encourage even more violence against Trump supporters, who are already being targeted by Democrat-affiliated activists like Antifa all around the nation. Interestingly, the Democrat activists who run Facebook apparently understand the potential liability being assumed by any platform that advertises for the hate film, given that, when I attempted to post a link to the Breitbart article linked here on my Facebook feed last night, the post was locked and I received a warning that the article and trailer within it did not meet Facebook’s fake “community standards related to nudity and sexual content.” The problem with that lie is that anyone who views the trailer can clearly see that it contains neither nudity nor sexual content.

When I attempted to post the link a second time, I was put in Facebook prison for 24 hours. Hilarious. But hey, I did break the rules in that second attempt, so I really have no issue with that action and am happy to take my medicine. However, I do object to Facebook’s pretense that it actually has any “community standards,” because “standards” are things that are enforced uniformly. What Facebook actually has are tools that it uses to suppress speech its Democrat activists do not approve of. That isn’t “standards,” that’s censorship.

Meanwhile, over on Twitter, the censorship is even more absurd. – When violent protesters, led by local leaders of the Soros-funded Black Lives Matter hate group, descended on Mitch McConnell’s home in Louisville, KY, some of them took video of the obscenity-and-threat-filled festivities and posted them to social media, including on Twitter.

But when @Team_Mitch shared the video on its own account, the Democrat activists who run Twitter suspended the account on the laughable claim that it  “violated our violent threats policy, specifically threats involving physical safety.” Mind you, this was Mitch McConnell simply exposing threats being made on his own person at his own home.

But it gets better. Twitter also suspended the account of Ryan Saavedra, a reporter for Daily Wire, for sharing the ugly video, but has not suspended the account for Black Lives Matter or any other activist who shared it. Twitter also has not suspended anyone who has spread the hateful #MassacreMitch hashtag which went viral on its platform on Wednesday.

As reported by @TheHill,

The video included Black Lives Matter Louisville leader Chanelle Helm repeatedly cursing and stating that she wished the GOP leader had ‘broken his little, raggedy, wrinkled-ass neck’ instead of injuring his shoulder last weekend, the Louisville Courier-Journal reported. Helm later said, ‘Just stab the motherf—er in the heart’ after a man made a reference to a voodoo doll. The comment quickly went viral on social media.

Perhaps Twitter’s reluctance to take any action against Black Lives Matter stems from its well-publicized partnership with the Soros hate group designed to promote exactly this kind of hateful activism across its platform. You think?

These are just two of thousands of incidents that have led the White House to begin drafting an executive order that would somehow address the blatant anti-conservative bias that permeates all the major social media platforms. As Politico reports:

The White House is circulating drafts of a proposed executive order that would address allegations of anti-conservative bias by social media companies, according to a White House official and two other people familiar with the matter — a month after President Donald Trump pledged to explore “all regulatory and legislative solutions” on the issue.

None of the three would describe the contents of the order, which one person cautioned has already taken many different forms and remains in flux. But its existence, and the deliberations surrounding it, are evidence that the administration is taking a serious look at wielding the federal government’s power against Silicon Valley.

An executive order is fine as a first step, but one that is likely to have very little impact on the behavior of these corporate giants. The Administration really needs to step up the efforts at regulatory agencies like the SEC, the FCC, the FEC, the IRS and others to rein them in, because their biased behavior represents a clear and present danger to our constitutional republic at this point.

This is not complicated: If an oil company provided free gasoline and jet fuel to Democrat campaigns, that would be an illegal contribution punishable with severe penalties, and properly so. The same should apply to Google, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and all the other big tech platforms and their tireless efforts to provide billions of dollars in free support across their platforms for Democrat candidates.

We broke up Standard Oil 115 years ago and AT&T 35 years ago. There is no reason we should not do the same with these social media giants in 2019. To paraphrase John F. Kennedy, they should be broken into a thousand pieces and scattered to the winds.

That is all.

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

Former South Carolina Congressman Trey Gowdy appeared on Sunday Morning Futures with Maria Bartiromo. During the course of the interview, Gowdy went off on an epic rant defending the honor of his friend John Ratcliffe, whose nomination to become the next Director of National Intelligence was torpedoed this week by RINO Richard Burr and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.

The Democrats are Ready to “MAVA” – Make America Venezuela Again

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

How stupid are Democrat voters? – Impossibly stupid, apparently. With a textbook socialism-caused collapse of a formerly prosperous nation taking place right here in our own hemisphere for all to see, the Democrat voter base here in the U.S. appears intent upon taking our own country down that same doomed-to-fail path.

It isn’t just the elevation of mindless nitwits like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez to congress, nor is the movement to self-destruction limited to support for an array of socialist presidential candidates, from Pete Buttigeig to Kamala Harris to The Commie. Democrat voters are also electing socialist thugs at the local level.

The latest example comes in Chicago, where, after the holding of this week’s runoff elections, the city council will now be home to as many as six new socialist aldermen. One of those winning socialists, a thug (because all socialists are thugs by their very nature) named Andre Vasquez, looked at the supporters assembled at his victory celebration Tuesday night and exclaimed, “Take a look around the room, we did this!”

That’s pretty much what Hugo Chavez said when he was first elected el Presidente in Venezuela in 1998. At that time, that country was a thriving, vibrant country blessed with incredible, growing wealth from its gigantic oil reserves. Today, just 21 years later, its residents are starving and dipping their buckets into sewers for drinking water.

Good luck with that, Chicago!

Speaking of thug politicians… – Chuck Schumer’s tireless efforts to prevent the proper staffing of the Trump Administration are going to become a lot harder to carry out now that Mitch McConnell and the GOP Senate majority went all nuclear upside his head on Wednesday.

The move by Republicans will result in the application of limited debate time for district judge appointments and sub-cabinet-level officials nominated by President Trump. Democrat thugs have used the pre-existing rule that allowed for them to tie up the senate for 30 hours of floor time on each nominee to prevent the Trump Administration from becoming properly staffed, and to build a huge and growing backlog of district court openings that now numbers 130.

Schumer, who, while serving as Senate Majority whip under Harry Reid, aggressively worked to enact Reid’s first “nuclear option” move when the Dems still had the majority in 2013, naturally took to the floor with a hypocritical screed against McConnell’s move, saying at one point that he was “so sorry that my Republican colleagues have gone along with Sen. McConnell’s debasement of the Senate.”

Honestly, how do these Democrats sleep at night? That’s actually a serious question.

And speaking of thug Democrats… – meanwhile, over in the House of Representatives, Democrat thugs were throwing out subpoenas like mardi gras revelers in New Orleans throw out cheap strands of beads. And these subpoenas are roughly equal in value, come to think of it.

The House Judiciary Committee, chaired by the despicable Jabba the Nadler, voted along party lines to authorize the corpulent Chairman to issue subpoenas for the “full Mueller report” in unredacted form, along with its supporting documents. They won’t get it, because such a subpoena would require Attorney General William Barr to break a multitude of federal laws.

The main concern is that federal law has always prevented the public release of grand jury material, and the Mueller report is chock-full of such material. Nadler and Bug-eyed Adam Schiff went on TV to promise they would never, never, ever allow such damaging material to be leaked, but we all know that that promise would last for about 30 seconds before it all started appearing in the New York Times and Washington Post.

So, that cat won’t flush, and the Democrats know it. They’re just doing this to keep the whole “Russia Collusion” fantasy alive through November, 2020.

Next, the House Ways and Means Committee, chaired by Massachusetts Democrat Richard Neal, threw out a demand to the IRS for all of President Trump’s tax returns for 2013 through 2018. That also ain’t gonna happen, and the Democrats know it – it’s just another effort to keep that particular sham alive through the 2020 elections.

Kevin Brady of Texas, who chaired Ways and Means in 2017-18, slammed the Democrats’ grotesque lurch into political thuggery: “This particular request is an abuse of the tax-writing committees’ statutory authority, and violates the intent and safeguards of Section 6103 of the Internal Revenue Code as Congress intended.”

That’s all true, but the Democrat Party as a whole no longer cares about such things. All they care about is the acquisition and maintenance of political power, patiently working towards the day when they once again control all levers of federal power as they did in 2009-10, during which they succeeded in nationalizing and destroying our nation’s health insurance system.

Should they ever achieve that goal again, this even more radicalized socialist Democrat Party will make 2009-10 seem like a walk in the park. They’re ready now to go full Nicolas Maduro on us, make no mistake about it.

I used to tell friends ‘vote for Democrats at your own risk,’ but I can’t even go there anymore. Because these days, a vote for any Democrat is a risk to all of us.

That is all.

Senate Vote to Rebuke Trump Lets GOP Voters Meet the Real Enemy

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

The Kabuki Theater in our nation’s capital never ceases. – Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell – who will be the Senate Minority Leader after the 2020 elections if he keeps pulling nonsense like this – staged a show vote in the U.S. Senate yesterday that will lead to President Donald Trump’s first exercise of his veto power.

The show vote came on a resolution to reverse the President’s national emergency declaration on the border situation – which congress is completely responsible for causing and allowing to mushroom – that was earlier passed by the House of Representatives. That declaration is clearly within both the President’s constitutional authority and consistent with the powers that congress had explicitly granted to every U.S. president in a law it passed in 1976.

Given that reality, the proper thing for a congress truly concerned with protecting its own powers to do would have been to act to reverse that 1976 law. But no, this is Kabuki theater we are playing at here, and members of congress really don’t want to have to be responsible for anything other than raising money for their next re-election campaign. Thus, House Democrats and a handful of Republicans came up with this resolution targeting a single declaration by a President they hate, a power that was exercised 17 times by America’s Worst Mistake, Barack Hussein Obama.

Given that this resolution contained a poison pill provision that gave the Senate just 18 days in which to hold a vote following the Feb. 26 house passage of it, McConnell could simply have allowed it to die on the vine without bringing it to the Senate floor as he has done with literally hundreds of previous bad bills that have come over from the House during his time in the leader’s post. But the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, the editorial board at the Wall Street Journal, and other major advocates of open borders demanded a show vote, and McConnell gave in to pressure from senate Republicans who are beholden to those elements of the D.C. establishment universe.

In the end, a dozen Republicans joined all 47 Senate Democrats in voting to pass the resolution. Rand Paul of Kentucky and Utah Senator Mike Lee voted with the majority due to their libertarian “principles”, principles that always seem to give one or both of them reason to defect to the Democrats on matters of real national import.  Funny how that works.

But the other 10 Rs who voted that way did so simply to please their open borders benefactors, and thus deserve to be mentioned by name and remembered by every thinking American who wishes to avoid turning our own country into just another 3rd-world hovel. Those senators are:

Susan Collins of Maine

Lisa Murkowski of Alaska, who has more conflicts than an episode of “Empire”

Mitt Romney of Utah because of course Mitt Romney is on this list

Marco Rubio of Florida because he still thinks he might be president some day

Rob Portman of Ohio

Pat Toomey of Pennsylvania

Jerry Moran of Kansas

Roy Blount of Missouri

Lamar Alexander of Tennessee

Roger Wicker of Mississippi

There they are in all their D.C. establishment glory, folks. Remember their names, and vote against them if you ever get the chance.

For his part, President Trump responded to the congressional taunt in typically hilarious and blunt fashion:

It’s a power he needs to use far more often. No better time to start than with this bit of Kabuki theater brought to his desk intentionally by Mitch McConnell and the open borders crowd in the GOP caucus.

Where GOP voters are concerned, a great line from the old “Pogo” comic strip comes to mind here:

Why Ed Markey is Desperate to Avoid Voting on His “Green New Deal”

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

Oh. Why, nobody could’ve seen that coming. Oh, wait… – Useless North Carolina RINO Senator Richard Burr told the leering press yesterday that the incredibly mis-named Senate Intelligence Committee has found no evidence of “collusion” with Russia by the Trump Campaign, Trump Transition Team or Trump Administration. Go figure.

Like American Gestapo Chief, er, “Special Counsel” Robert Mueller, Senate Intel is winding down its fake investigation because there is no “there” there – never was, isn’t now, and never will be. Democrats and fake journalists who really bought into this fantasy play expressed their shock and dismay, but Burr and his partner in this fake investigation – Virginia Democrat Senator Mark Warner – are finally giving up the ghost and directing their committee to move onto greener pastures.

Hey, here’s an idea – maybe y’all can go back to doing your actual job and start exercising a little congressional oversight over the nation’s still-corrupt “intelligence” community. What a novel concept.

Sen. Ed Markey wants to “sponsor” the incredibly destructive “Green New Deal”… – but he just doesn’t want to “vote” for the incredibly destructive “Green New Deal.” That was the message sent out by the despicable Democrat from Massachusetts on Tuesday after Mitch McConnell told the press he is making plans to hold a vote on the hilariously inept congressional resolution that Alexandria Ocasio Cortez rolled out into the public domain last week.

“I’ve noted with great interest the Green New Deal,” McConnell said, “And we’re going to be voting on that in the Senate. Give everybody an opportunity to go on record and see how they feel about the Green New Deal.” In other words, the Senate Majority Leader wants to get every Democrat member in that body on the record supporting things like destroying the miracle of air flight, destroying the nation’s thriving oil and gas industry, making cars too expensive for all but the wealthy to afford and throwing the United States quickly into an economic depression that would make the 1930s look like a walk in the park.

Sen. Markey wants none of that voting nonsense. He wants to be able to keep up his 30-year practice of being a rank demagogue on the “Global Warming” issue without actually having votes in favor of the invariably-Socialist/fascist “solutions” proposed by the fake “green” community dirtying up his record.

Thus it was that, shortly after McConnell made his promise to hold a vote, Markey issued this response that reeks of desperation:

“Don’t let Mitch McConnell fool you: this is nothing but an attempt to sabotage the movement we are building. He wants to silence your voice so Republicans don’t have to explain why they are climate change deniers. McConnell wants this to be the end, this is just the beginning.”

Yeah, it’s a “beginning” all right – Markey may or may not realize it just yet, but the roll-out of this creepy proposal to turn our country into just another starving, third-world socialist/fascist failed state is indeed the beginning of the end of the Democrat Party’s quest to regain the levers of power in Washington. Democrats have only managed to win elections over the past half-century by lying about their real beliefs and intentions. The Green New Deal removes that mask for all to see, and it is an incredibly ugly face that most Americans will never support.

So, in case you’re wondering, that is why Markey and other senate Democrats will do everything they can to avoid casting a vote on AOC’s incredibly destructive proposal.

Hey, maybe this is another reason… – You don’t have to believe me or any other conservative voice on how awful the Green New Deal really is – you could listen to the founder of the far-left eco-terrorist group “GreenPeace” if you want.

Patrick Moore, in an interview with the New American, basically characterized Markey’s proposal as a global suicide pact:  “It is quite amazing that someone that is in government — actually elected to the government of the United States of America — would propose that we eliminate all fossil fuels in 12 years,” he said in an on-camera interview with The New American from Canada. “This would basically result, if we did it on a global level, it would result in the decimation of the human population from 7-odd billion down to who knows how few people.”

Oh. Well, gosh, maybe it isn’t such a great idea, then.

Hold the vote, Mitch. Put these soulless ghouls on the record for posterity.

That is all.

Mueller Bites Into Another Ham Sandwich

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

Robert Mueller has a passion for ham. – The Special Counsel’s office nabbed itself another ham sandwich in the dark of night, arresting former Trump adviser (prior to the 2016 election campaign) Roger Stone with CNN’s cameras conveniently present for the festivities. Funny how that works, huh?

The 66 year-old Stone, who is one of the most recognizable people in America at this point and not any sort of flight risk at all, was arrested at his home as FBI agents pounded on his door shouting “FBI! Open the door!” as they would if they were playing Elliot Ness in a Hollywood-produced film. Stone, after opening the door, was naturally taken away in handcuffs.

The arrest of Stone on a variety of process crimes having nothing to do with any “collusion” with anyone from Russia comes after 20 months of a Mueller-led rectal exam into every facet of his life. The obviously-coordinated media event also conveniently comes in the wake of recent releases of transcripts of the congressional testimonies of a series of FBI/DOJ anti-Trump cabal participants like Lisa Page and James Baker which contained revelations of all sorts of violations of law and process committed as part of the efforts to get Trump during 2016 and 2017. You know, actual news that CNN couldn’t be bothered to report.

Timing is everything if you’re a Special Counsel.

Stone was charged with a series of terrible-sounding process crimes like “obstruction of justice” (as if this Mueller and his band of Clinton/Obama shills were engaged in any sort of pursuit of actual “justice”), “witness tampering” and “lying to congress”, all of which sound great when trumpeted by the news-fakers at CNN. But God help him if he ever screwed up on a tax return, because at the end of the day all these other charges will almost certainly fall away and that is what he’ll end up going to jail for.

Just another day in the pursuit of “justice” by the American Gestapo.

And now for something completely different…: Here’s Irish Bob O’Rourke in a Sheep Suit.  No, really, I’m not making this up…

Conservatives like Jim Hanson making fun of Irish Bob over this video are just whistling past the graveyard.  Democrat voters eat this kind of stuff up. In their minds, O’Rourke in a onesie just makes him cool and hip and they’re all out there on Amazon this morning trying to figure out if they can buy one for themselves. And that sheep mask will be all the rage at Millennial Halloween parties this October.

At the end of the day, the release of this little snip of video will get Irish Bob another 5 percent in the Democrat 2020 nomination horse race polls.

He’s a shoe-in, folks.  Just get used to it: Beto-In-A-Sheep-Suit 2020!!!!

Actually, Mitch, you’re wrong. – The news-fakers at The Hill report this morning that GOP senators “Read the Riot Act” to Vice President Mike Pence at a closed-door luncheon yesterday. Led by Mitch McConnell, this group of half a dozen or so establishment unreliables informed the Veep that government shutdowns are “bad strategy”, with McConnell reminding Pence of his “favorite country saying” which is “there is no education in the second kick of a mule.”

Whatever that means.

We hear this nonsense all the time from McConnell and the GOP Squish lobby in the Senate and House. But every time we hear it, it is instructive to review the last time the GOP got blamed for a partial fake shutdown of the government.

That took place in October, 2013, when Texas Sen. Ted Cruz and Utah Sen. Mike Lee – two actual, real conservative Republicans – led filibusters of a horrible budget bill to force a shutdown that lasted from October 1 through October 17 before they finally relented and agreed to a compromise.

As we see happening today, Democrats and their coordinating agents in the fake news media reacted to that action by Cruz and Lee with glee, assuring the public that Republicans would pay dearly at the ballot box when the 2014 mid-term congressional elections came around.  Because, that is what D.C. Swamp logic told them would happen, right?  Right.

But what actually did happen in the 2014 mid-term elections?  Why, the GOP base turned out in droves, and Republicans swept to huge gains in both the House and Senate.  In fact, this was the election in which Republicans gained control of the Senate for the first time since 2006, the election that put Cocaine Mitch into the Majority Leader’s role he holds today.

One would think McConnell might actually remember such a red-letter day in his career.

I have been involved in and written about politics for almost 40 years now, and it never ceases to amaze me how so many Republicans are simply incapable of recognizing the single most important lesson the great Ronald Wilson Reagan taught them: Republicans will always be rewarded by voters when they stand on principle and keep their promises, and will always be punished by them when they fail to do so.

In this government shutdown, President Donald Trump is standing on principle and keeping his promose, and he will be rewarded by the voters for doing so in 2020 so long as he does not capitulate.  Republicans who stand with him will also be rewarded. Republicans who do not stand with him will be punished.

It really is that simple.

That is all.

Government Shutdown – Trump Needs to Hold Firm This Time

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Better late than never, as they say. – This is the partial government “shutdown” that comes 10 months too late.  This is the one President Donald Trump should have allowed to fester until he got his priorities funded back in February, when he signed a horrific omnibus spending bill that also failed to address border security in any meaningful way.

Those with long memories will recall that the President, upon signing that bloated monstrosity, declared he would never sign another omnibus like it. He also promised to never sign another one that did not effectively address border security.

He is not faced with an “omnibus” spending bill this time, but he is faced with yet another situation in which Democrats in the Senate refuse to do anything that would have the effect of controlling America’s right to remain a sovereign nation, which it cannot and will not continue to be without border security. The Democrats know this, and do not care. This is the reality we are all faced with in America today.

Had the President held firm in February and allowed what would have been a “shutdown” of about 14% of the federal government to continue until the Democrats caved, he may well have saved the Republican majority in the House of Representatives. Instead, by signing that bill, he allowed Paul Ryan and the rest of the GOP congressional leadership to commit political suicide by yet again abandoning all of their campaign promises in the name of political expediency.

The President seems intent on holding firm this time, but we have seen this act before, and it always ends with him caving in to pressure from Ryan, Mitch McConnell and his own White House advisors, and signing something that they assure him will make all the bad media coverage end.

Of course, back in February, their argument was, “Mr. President, you must sign this awful bill because it will allow us to win the mid-terms!” President Trump saw how that all worked out, as did we all. So he might be a little harder to move this time, with no elections coming up for two years and a new Democrat majority about to seize control of the House in a couple of weeks.

The President also seems to understand that, despite all his myriad other accomplishments in office, he is beginning to lose some of his base due to his failure to get much of anything done on what was the central issue of his campaign. He has options in this fight that he has thus far chosen not to use, for whatever reason.

One option is to simply declare the lack of border security a national security emergency and divert funds from the Department of Defense to fund the building of a wall. This is one of several issues on which Trump clashed with outgoing Defense Secretary James Mattis, and could have been a factor in Mattis’s decision to resign.

Whatever, all we can do is wait and see if the President will hold firm this time, at long last. It may be too late to save the Republican House, but it’s not too late to save the country.

That is all.

The Week in Review: A Week of Democrat/Media Narrative Epic Fails

The Campaign Update Week in Review

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Every week in American politics is different.  They all have their ebbs and flows, their dramas, their comedies, their pratfalls and their tragedies.

Typically, they all have their own narratives, the overriding major story or stories that our fake news media conspire with the Democrat Party to push into the public domain for political advantage.  Sometimes, a single narrative dominates the entire week – as happened a few weeks ago with the whole Kavanaugh drama.  Most of them end up being ineffective, although a few end up having legs, and at the end of most weeks you can typically look back and identify one that served as the overriding Democrat/media theme for that 7-day period.

But not this week.  This week is different.  This week, there was no single overriding narrative that any normal American paid special attention to.

The Khashoggi murder at the Saudi consulate in Turkey came closest – it lasted the whole week, and the media obsessed over it for sure.  But at the end of the day, very few normal Americans actually cared what happened to this radical Islamic, Muslim Brotherhood-pushing opinion writer.  It was an utterly failed narrative, but because Khashoggi was a fellow fake journalist, the U.S. media couldn’t stop pushing it.

But hey, whether the narratives are effective or not, the one thing we know for sure about our hated fake news media is that they will keep on pushing them on behalf of their Democrat masters, because they’ve been doing it for so long now, they don’t know how to do anything else.

 

And now, without further ado, let’s go to the Week in Review (see what I did there?):

It was the week that Democrats hired a bunch of crisis actors to form a “migrant caravan” that amazingly consists of about 80% military-age males (see photo below) to make its way up through Honduras, Guatemala and Mexico to conveniently arrive at the Rio Grande a few days before Election Day.  Thanks to the intervention of President Donald Trump, the “caravan” was halted at Mexico’s southern border.  As of this morning, half of the original 4,000 are on their way back to Honduras and the other half are in a Mexican detention camp.

 

It was the week that the fake news media finally began admitting what the Campaign Update has been telling you for several weeks, which is that Special Counsel Robert Mueller is systematically closing up his shop.  The newsfakers at Politico ran a piece on Friday titled “Mueller Report PSA:  Prepare for Disappointment”.  The subhead reads “And be forewarned that the special counsel’s findings may never be made public.”  Campaign Update readers knew all of that a week ago.

Speaking of Democrat disappointment, it was the week that the fake news media and pollsters who have been pushing their “Blue Wave” fantasy for a year suddenly began getting cold feet and speculating about what will happen if the Republicans maintain control of both houses of congress again?  Go figure.

It was the week that the Pantsuit Princess let it be known she is contemplating running yet again in 2020 and many Democrat Party leaders contemplated slitting their own wrists.

It was the week that our fake news media demonstrated that it cares infinitely more about the murder of an obscure Saudi national opinion writer than it cared about the following killings of actual Americans:

– Kate Steinle

– Seth Rich

– Benghazi

– Vince Foster

– Mary Mahoney

– James McDougal

– Ed Willey

– Ron Brown

– Mollie Tibbetts

…and this list could go on and on and on.  And these fake “journalists” wonder why so many millions of Americans detest them.

It was the week that Mitch McConnell and his wife were accosted by a Democrat thug in a cafe in his hometown of Louisville, Kentucky.  Rather than just sit and watch like a bunch of Washington D.C. slugs, McConnell’s fellow diners got pissed and ran the thug out of the place.  That’s what happens when you try to pull crap like this out here in Flyover Country, boys.  If you pull a stunt like that in Texas, you’ll probably end up in an emergency room.

It was the week when Elizabeth Warren became so enraged with President Trump and his constant “Pocahontas” taunts about her fake Indian heritage that she took a damn DNA test and proved herself to be 1/1,024th “right”.  The hilarity that ensued with meme after meme after meme on social media was comedic gold, I tell ya, gold!

It was the week that Christine Blasey Ford disappeared completely from the public conversation, as the Democrat Party has no further use for her.  The same thing will happen to all those crisis actors down in Mexico at midnight on Election Day.

Speaking of disappearing Democrat tools, it was also the week that the Creepy Porn Lawyer disappeared from the public space.  Presumably all those dimwits at CNN and MSNBC who gave money to Stormy Daniels’ GoFundMe account are a little ticked that their money will now actually go to reimburse President Trump for his legal expenses after the porn star and her creepy lawyer got poured out of court last week.

It was the week that oily Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein had several hours to spend being interviewed by the Wall Street Journal, but couldn’t find the time to offer testimony to congress.  When Rosenstein finally agreed to testify next week, he demanded the testimony take place in secret in a secure location, and with only 2 Republicans and 2 Democrats present.

It was the week that a husband and wife pair of nitwits in Katy, Texas decided it would be a peachy idea to paint a huge, 20′ x 20′ “Beto” sign on their front lawn, and then expressed great confusion about why their neighborhood HOA is irritated with them.  I swear I don’t make this stuff up.

Finally, it was the week when the President of the United States of America sent out this hilarious message on his Twitter account:

Funny, but oh, so true.

That is all.

The Week in Review: Trump Spoke the Truth, the Media Went Nuts

The Campaign Update Week in Review

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

The most outstanding feature of this week was the media going nuts.  What was so interesting about it to me was that they went nuts every time President Trump told the truth

For example, at the formal swearing-in of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh, the President told the truth about the fact that he had been subjected to a shameful smearing organized by the Democrats.  An absolute, unarguable fact.  The media went nuts.

At his rally in Ohio Friday night, Trump told the truth about the unarguable fact that Robert E. Lee was a great general.  Simply a fact of history.  The media went nuts.

Upon the release of Pastor Andrew Brunson from a Turkish prison, the President tweeted this absolute true statement:

“There was NO DEAL made with Turkey for the release and return of Pastor Andrew Brunson. I don’t make deals for hostages. There was, however, great appreciation on behalf of the United States, which will lead to good, perhaps great, relations between the United States & Turkey!”

Not surprisingly, the media went nuts.

Of course, the reality here is the media and their Democrat masters just can’t deal with reality.  Trump keeps winning, they keep losing, and they go nuts because they don’t know what else to do at this point.  Combine all that losing with the fact this was the week that their precious “blue wave” fantasy began to show signs of slipping away, and it’s amazing they all haven’t been committed to an asylum by now.

But hey, it’s just a matter of time.  Let’s go to the Week in Review:

 

It was the week Cocaine Mitch McConnell out-maneuvered Cryin’ Chuckie Schumer yet again, securing a deal in which the Senate confirmed en mass no less than 15 new federal judges to the bench in exchange for calling the Senate into recess so that desperate Democrats could go home to campaign.

It was the week Hurricane Michael devastated the Florida panhandle, and Democrat Senator Bill Nelson turned the tragedy into a fundraising opportunity.

It was the week that Al Gore told us all we only have 10 more years to save the planet, a talking point he has used every year for the last 30 years, and will continue to use every year for the rest of his life.

It was the week that the Creepy Porn Lawyer and Irish Bob O’Rourke formed a fundraising partnership, because apparently Irish Bob just can’t run a senate campaign with only $60 million on hand.

It was the week that an American president secured the release of a hostage from Turkey without trading a bunch of terrorist prisoners held here in the U.S. and without shipping planeloads of cash to a hostile government.  Just one more element of the un-American legacy of Barack Hussein Obama gone.

It was the week that Taylor Swift became a leftist hero by endorsing Tennessee Democrat senate candidate Phil Bredesen, and Bredesen’s campaign immediately fell completely apart.

It was the week that Kanye West became a leftist enemy by breaking bread with President Donald Trump, and every talking head on CNN and MSNBC went into full panic mode.  The anti-Kanye rhetoric coming out of those two fake news outlets sounded like something out of a 1940s Klan rally.

It was the week that Judge Brett Kavanaugh became Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh and there wasn’t a damn thing any Democrat on earth could do about it.

It was the week that the Democrats and the fake news media dropped Christine Ford like a hot potato to literally no one’s surprise.

It was the week that the Pantsuit Princess and Eric Holder openly declared themselves in favor of escalating violence from the American left.

It was the week that Nikki Haley announced she would be leaving her UN post at the end of the year, and every Trump supporter breathed a huge sigh of relief when he made it clear that Bushite globalist Dina Powell would not be her successor.

It was the week we found out that the Arizona Democrat senate candidate thinks her state is “the meth lab of America.”

Finally, It was the week that all the pollsters who have spent the last 9 months doing their best to convince us all a “blue wave” began to panic and warn their favored Democrats that hey, uh, well, ummmm…maybe that’s not really gonna happen after all.

Man, nobody could’ve seen that one coming.  Oh, wait…

That is all.
