Impeachment Public Testimony: The Worst 8 Days in Democrat Party History

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

As the public impeachment circus hearings come to a close, America asks, what in the hell was that all about? – Having worked in the communications field for a long, long time, one of the first things I learned was that if you cannot make your case to the average American in 25 words or less – 50 at the outside – you don’t have a case.

The average American has the attention span of the average house cat. If you aren’t giving them some food or scratching them at just the right spot behind the ears, they’re going to move onto focusing on the next thing that moves. That is why this impeachment circus is going to go down as one of the most epic fails in our nation’s history.

Over the last 8 days, Bug-eyes Schiff has paraded a series of non-witnesses across the nation’s television screens who not only could not make their case in 25 to 50 words, they couldn’t do it in 25 to 50 minutes. By the time people like Bill Taylor or this David what’s-his-name who testified on Thursday with Fiona Hill finished their interminable, confusing opening statements, most Americans had either tuned out or committed suicide just to make the bad men stop.

It has been hilarious watching during the breaks as DC Swamp skunks like Chris Wallace have classified a Marie Yovanovitch or a Gordan Sondland as a “compelling witness,” knowing that these insufferable gossips were compelling only to their fellow denizens of the Swamp. No one in the rest of America gave a damn what these people had to say, and that is already starting to show up in the public opinion polls.

Think about it: Everyone in America knew what Watergate was all about. There was a burglary and the President lied and obstructed justice to try to cover it all up. That’s 18 words.

Everyone in America knew what the Clinton impeachment was all about. The President was having sex with a plump intern in the Oval Office and he lied and obstructed justice to try to cover it all up. That’s 26 words. Easy.

In this Ukraine deal, the Democrats have simply failed to make any cogent case describing succinctly what it is all about. Anyone who managed to listen to this parade of offended bureaucrats came away more confused than anything else, and frankly pissed off to see first-hand the sort of petty jealousies and turf-protection activities that appear to dominate in America’s diplomatic corps.

This whole process is a stunning, amazing failure by a Democrat Party armed with the support of 95% of the nation’s corrupt news media. In order for it to succeed, Schiff and his band of circus clowns would have had to move public opinion in favor of impeachment to such an extent that a bunch of Republican members of the house and senate came over to their side. Instead, the first raft of polling data shows they have only succeeded in moving it in the President’s favor.

Republicans, in fact, are so fired up that a group of GOP senators – including Lindsey Graham, Susan Collins and Mitt Romney (!) – got together at the White House with President Trump today and agreed that it would be to their advantage to hold a full-fledged trial in the Senate should the Democrats ultimately approve articles of impeachment.

Rather than try to make this thing go away quickly, the GOP is now ready to prolong it right into the presidential primary season.

These past 8 days are the worst 8 days in the Democrat Party’s history. They will ultimately ensure that Bug-eyes Schiff’s place in U.S. history will be as one of the greatest failures ever to walk the halls of congress. Awesome.

That is all.

Unpopular French Senators, and Piece of Sh*t Engages in Projection

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

Delightful Peter isn’t satisfying his voters back home. – It turns out that running fake Twitter accounts and bashing the sitting President who easily won your state in 2016 is not a great strategy. A new poll of Utah voters shows the state’s creepy Twitter lurking Senator is now underwater with his constituents by a 46-51% margin. Not earth-shattering, but also not optimal, and it’s important to note that this poll was taken before Romney’s creepy nom de plume was revealed for all to be repelled by on Monday.

But Pierre Delecto, aka Creepy Uncle Mitt, did not run for that Utah senate seat in 2018 in the hopes of spending 30 years in the Senate. He ran for that senate seat in order to position himself to help remove President Donald Trump from office. He and his #NeverTrump cheering squad then hope to position the 2012 loooooooser to Barack Obama as the GOP’s replacement nominee so that he can run another loooooser campaign and hand the presidency to whatever Marxist/Alinsky radical the Democrat Party offers up.

So, negative approval polls back home? A minor irritant to a fake Frenchman with such large dreams of losing on the national stage one more time.

Noted piece of sh*t Obama toady Susan Rice engages in some podcast projection. – What is it about these Democrats and their podcasts? First, the Pantsuit Princess calls Tulsi Gabbard a Russian asset on a podcast with Democrat shill David Plouffe, causing an intra-party war to break out.

Now, the wretched Benghazi liar Susan Rice, one of the most detestable public figures in modern times, goes on a podcast with fellow Obama toady pieces of sh*t Ben Rhodes and Tommy Vietor and calls Senator Lindsey Graham “a piece of sh*t”, not once, but three times:

“He’s been a piece of shit,” she said. “He’s a piece of shit. There, I said it, he’s a piece of sh*t.”

Now, many, many people have very strong opinions about Sen. Graham, and most of them are well-founded and well-deserved. I personally detailed my own current grievances about the South Carolina Senator just yesterday, in fact.

Graham is one of the most mercurial and unprincipled members of the U.S. Senate, a guy who followed the execrable warmonger globalist John McCain around like a little doggie on a leash for 20 years, but also a guy who experiences momentary bursts of stellar behavior, as he did during the Brett Kavanaugh hearings a year ago:

But Susan Rice of all people? Whatever else one thinks about Lindsey Graham, he served his country in the U.S. Air Force JAG Corps for 7 years. Susan Rice has never had a patriotic moment in her entire life. Susan Rice has never produced anything positive for the American people. Susan Rice is the despicable hack who has such low personal standards that she was willing to go on not one, not two, not three, not four, but FIVE Sunday morning fake news shows on the Sunday after Benghazi happened and recite a completely false script at Obama’s demand.

Susan Rice is the detestable sock puppet who wrote the infamous “memo to self” on January 20, 2017, in a vain attempt to cover Obama’s crooked butt related to the efforts to spy on the Trump campaign and fix the 2016 election. Susan Rice is nothing but the very worst kind of DC Swamp errand girl, a person who has spent her entire adult life working to undermine the foundations of the American Republic.

If anyone in America can be accurately described as a pile of excrement laying out on a sidewalk for some unsuspecting passerby to step on, it is Susan Rice. She should move to San Francisco, where piles of human waste are all over the sidewalks and she would have plenty of company.

This has got to be the most unintentionally-hilarious case of projection in world history.

That is all.

Predictably, Romney Sides With the Democrats on Impeachment

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

The Campaign Update hates to say it told you so, but, well, it told you so. –  To the surprise of literally no one who has paid attention to his mendacious machinations to position himself to seek the 2020 GOP presidential nomination in the event of the ultimate removal of President Trump in this latest Deep State coup effort, Mitt Romney on Friday issued a series of tweets which for all intents and purposes put him in direct league with San Fran Nan and the Munchkin caucus in the House of Representatives:

You regular readers of Today’s Campaign Update already expected the 2012 loser Romney to make his next move, since we laid it all out for you in the Campaign Update for September 26. Seeking an opening to move into the mix for the 2020 nomination is the very reason why Romney sought retiring Senator Orrin Hatch’s open Utah senate seat in the first place in 2018.

The disloyal RINO believes his time has come with San Fran Nan’s fake impeachment circus, but let’s analyze what he says in his tweets through the lens of reality.

First, there’s this:

“When the only American citizen President Trump singles out for China’s investigation is his political opponent in the midst of the Democratic nomination process, it strains credulity to suggest that it is anything other than politically motivated.”

Ok, so which other American citizen worked with his ne’er-do-well son to implement a blatantly obvious pay for play scheme to leverage his high government office in recent years? I mean, other than Hillary Clinton, that is. I can’t think of any other high official accused of such shenanigans as they relate to China, although we now know it is likely San Fran Nan has been doing the same thing with her own son and Ukraine.

Is the junior Senator from Utah suggesting that the sitting POTUS has no obligation to root out corruption in the U.S. government, whether it is current or in the recent past? Surely no man of God, which Romney piously claims to be, would hold such a belief.

Ok, then, is Romney suggesting that any Democrat who fears being investigated for corruption can obtain immunity by simply declaring his or her candidacy for the 2020 Democrat nomination? If that’s the legal principle this jackass is endorsing, imagine how many former DOJ/FBI/CIA officials – not to mention the Pantsuit Princess – will be lining up to file their papers with the FEC in the coming days.

Then there’s this:

“By all appearances, the President’s brazen and unprecedented appeal to China and to Ukraine to investigate Joe Biden is wrong and appalling.”

Is the junior Senator simply unaware that the United States of America has anti-corruption treaties with both China and Ukraine, treaties that obligate both nations to perform full and complete investigations of allegations of corrupt acts by one anothers’ citizens in their countries when these kinds of allegations arise? Those are treaties entered into by previous presidential administrations, not this one.

Also, has the junior Senator simply never heard of this thing called the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, a law enacted in 1977, when Democrat James Earl Carter was president? Here is DOJ’s official description of that law:

The Foreign Corrupt Practices Act of 1977, as amended, 15 U.S.C. §§ 78dd-1, et seq. (“FCPA”), was enacted for the purpose of making it unlawful for certain classes of persons and entities to make payments to foreign government officials to assist in obtaining or retaining business. Specifically, the anti-bribery provisions of the FCPA prohibit the willful use of the mails or any means of instrumentality of interstate commerce corruptly in furtherance of any offer, payment, promise to pay, or authorization of the payment of money or anything of value to any person, while knowing that all or a portion of such money or thing of value will be offered, given or promised, directly or indirectly, to a foreign official to influence the foreign official in his or her official capacity, induce the foreign official to do or omit to do an act in violation of his or her lawful duty, or to secure any improper advantage in order to assist in obtaining or retaining business for or with, or directing business to, any person.

Since 1977, the anti-bribery provisions of the FCPA have applied to all U.S. persons and certain foreign issuers of securities. With the enactment of certain amendments in 1998, the anti-bribery provisions of the FCPA now also apply to foreign firms and persons who cause, directly or through agents, an act in furtherance of such a corrupt payment to take place within the territory of the United States.

[End]

The allegation related to Ukraine where Hunter Biden is concerned is that he was given a cushy, high-paying seat on the board of directors of a Ukraine gas company even though he held zero expertise in the energy world. Thus, the allegation is that the $50k/month he received was simply a bribe in exchange for access to his Vice President dad, who also happened to be Barack Obama’s point man on Ukraine policy.

The allegation related to China is that Hunter Biden’s investment firm – created right after his Dad became Vice President – took billions in fees from Chinese businesses in exchange for similar access to Dear ol’ Dad.

Given this blatant, transparent pay to play operation, and Joe Biden’s bragging about getting a Ukraine prosecutor who was investigating Hunter’s shenanigans fired, President Trump could legitimately be accused of dereliction of duty if he did NOT ask the Ukrainian and Chinese governments to investigate the matters.

Thus, the Junior Senator from Utah is in fact advocating the President break the law and ignore his oath of office.

What a despicable – and entirely predictable – thing for the 2012 loser to do.

That is all.

Larry Schweikart: Don’t Worry About Mitch McConnell On Impeachment

Guest Piece by Larry Schweikart, America’s History Teacher

Yertle’s Quiet Effectiveness

Poor old Mitch McConnell. The Senate Majority Leader is frequently accused of being part of the “Swamp.” Perhaps he is, but he has been superbly effective for the last four years, and almost nobody notices. Indeed, Yertle (as I affectionately call him) has been a one-man Senate wrecking crew against liberals.

Yet he is constantly under fire, most recently from Rush Limbaugh who cited Yertle’s comment that if the House impeaches President Trump, the Senate must have a trial. Well, duh.

That’s the Constitution fer ya!

But I don’t think it means at all what it seems, and I think Nancy Pelosi (who I refer to as “Botoxic”) is realizing that. But let’s review Yertle’s record first, shall we?

In 2015, at no one’s urging, Yertle took it upon himself to block Barack Obama’s U.S. Supreme Court nominee, Merrick Garland, from receiving a vote, claiming (with no particular historical precedent) that because Zero (my nickname for Obama) was in the last year of his presidency, that would not be fair. Keeping Garland off the Court and preventing a Democrat 5-4 majority would have been huge, to say the least.

But Yertle didn’t stop there.

*Lucy Koh, nominated to the Ninth Circuit, was reported out of the Judiciary Committee but Yertle didn’t give her a floor vote. Instead that went to a Trump appointee, Daniel Collins.

*The same story was true of Donald Schott, a Seventh Circuit nominee. The seat ultimately went to Trump pick Michael Brennan.

*In the Eighth Circuit, the nominee Jennifer Puhl likewise was not given a vote. That went to.  Trump pick Ralph Erickson.

*At the Supreme Court level, Yertle promised that both Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh would be confirmed. They were. (By the way, yesterday Russell Bucklew was executed: his appeal, Bucklew v. Precythe involved the issue of capital punishment, and the Court ruled against Bucklew. That very well may not have happened without Kavanaugh.)

*He promised to pass the tax cut. He did.

*He promised to bring Obamacare up for a vote (note: Yertle did NOT promise to pass it, as I think he knew John McCain would do his infamous “thumbs down.”)

So as best I can tell, every time Yertle says he will do something, it gets done. Let’s return to Yertle’s comment about holding a trial if Botoxic passes impeachment: I don’t think this was Yertle laying down at all (or, I guess, retreating into his shell). I don’t even think this was him absentmindedly saying he’d follow the Constitution.

For a free “Reagan” webinar, email Larry at larry@wildworldofhistory.com.

This was a shot across Botoxic’s bow. This was Yertletalk for “Make my day.” This tells me Yertle knows he hsa 34 hard “acquits” in his caucus (and likely another 10 squish acquits—that is, RINOs who, when they see how the vote is going, will be on the winning side). Indeed, I think Yertle is right now just a couple of votes away from something that is rarely mentioned: a “dismissal.” The Senate must convene a trial, but in Bill Clinton’s impeachment trial, two weeks in, Senator Robert “Sheets” Byrd filed a motion to dismiss.

It only failed by seven votes—for a president who had clearly lied and obstructed justice. Therefore, I think Yertle probably could count on about 45-47 votes to dismiss right now. If the impeachment charges from the House are lame (as almost certainly they will be), Yertle can reach 50, and Mike Pence breaks the tie. By saying “We’d have to have a trial,” Yertle was promising Botoxic and the Democrats would lose in a most embarrassing way, that there would be no stalling, and that it would be over before Ilhan Omar could marry another male relative.

Yertle knows his caucus, and he knows that other than Mitt (“Minion”) Romney, no one will vote to convict Trump of anything. I can almost hear Yertle, in his best Pedro Serrano voice (from “Major League”), “You bring dat chit to me, mon. Bring dat chit to me!”

Bolton Out, Permanent War Crowd Angry. Cool.

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

National Security Advisor John Bolton claims he resigned today. – But the truth is almost certainly that he was fired, most likely because President Donald Trump became fed up with Bolton always playing George C. Scott’s General Turgidson character in the film Dr. Strangelove:

Turgidson: Mr. President, we are rapidly approaching a moment of truth, both for ourselves as human beings and for the life of our nation. Now, truth is not always a pleasant thing. But it is necessary now to make a choice, to choose between two admittedly regrettable, but nevertheless distinguishable, post-war environments: one where you got 20 million people killed, and the other where you got 150 million people killed!]

Muffley: You’re talking about mass murder, General, not war.

Turgidson: Mr. President, I’m not saying we wouldn’t get our hair mussed, but I do say no more than 10 to 20 million killed, tops! Uh, depending on the breaks.

Muffley: I will not go down in history as the greatest mass murderer since Adolf Hitler.

Turgidson: Perhaps it might be better, Mr. President, if you were more concerned with the American people, than with your image in the history books.

Here is what the President tweeted out about the matter earlier today:

It becomes tiresome, no doubt, to be constantly advised to just keep the wars going when you got elected based on a promise to start ending some of the damn wars. So, let’s nobody be surprised that the President ultimately got fed up and pulled the trigger, so to speak, on firing the White House spokesperson for the permanent war crowd.

Who leads that crowd, you ask? Well, to paraphrase the great Hans Gruber from Die Hard, “you ask me for the leader, I give you Mitt Romney”:

You should also expect your TV screens and social media news feeds to be filled with similar statements of outrage from the usual warmonger suspects like Bill Kristol, various writers at the National Review and of course, the presidential candidate you never heard of before last week, Joe Walsh.

Meanwhile, Senator Rand Paul, who supports the President’s vision of getting America out of these intractable Middle East and African conflicts, had this to say:

 

Ironically you will also no doubt see many of the very same Democrats and fake news media talking heads who slammed President Trump for hiring Bolton now also slam him for firing Bolton.

Oh, hey, here’s Democrat congressman Chris Murphy doing exactly that:

Finally, you will also see the fake news media who detest the President suddenly cast Bolton as the smartest guy in the room, a wise and seasoned advisor who everyone should now listen to, just as they have done with The Mooch in the past few weeks. I give it no more than 72 hours before either CNN or MSNBC gives Bolton a huge contract to be an on-air expert contributor.

Because that is who our fake news media is, and that is how they work.

That is all.

The Week in Review: The Trump Tide Begins to Turn

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

[The week just past as chronicled on the @GDBlackmon Twitter feed.]

The week began with sellout actor Robert DeNiro threatening Trump supporters that he’d never forget what we’ve done the last few years, whatever that means. Yeah, well, we’re never gonna forget he got paid $20 million for making “Dirty Grandpa” and “The Intern.”:

But things only got better from there. Here is a worker who does, I kid you not, the BEST. TRUMP. IMPRESSION. EVER!:

Slick Willie and the Pantsuit Princess got heckled in their fake “home state” of New York, and all was right with the world.:

Jabba The Nadler jumped in to defend The Enemy Within, Ilhan Omar, in her latest anti-America remarks controversy.:

Cher previews the lyrics to her upcoming new hit sing, “MY CITY CAN’T TAKE CARE OF ITS OWN!!!!”:

…and the next morning’s Campaign Update was all about that Cher tweet, which was the most awesomest tweet in the history of awesomely hypocritical tweets.:

Why “global warming” isn’t really a thing anymore…:

It was mid-day Monday, and Notre Dame was burning.:

Meanwhile, “Morning Joe” was off his meds again. Or maybe he was on them, it’s hard to tell.:

Irish Bob O’Rourke was running low on meaningless sophistries to recite to his mind-numbed followers, so he decided to poll them about what they want to hear, so they could give him a bunch more things to regurgitate back to them on the campaign trail. He is seriously running the most vacuous campaign in Democrat history, and that is the party that gave us two previous campaigns from Joe Biden.:

AOC is actually correct about this, but the truth about Creepy Joe Biden won’t sit well with San Fran Nan.:

San Fran Nan was trying to get AOC and The Enemy Within under some control, and her efforts did seem to have some dampening effect on their behavior as the week wore on. It won’t last for long, though.:

Well, that sure doesn’t fit the narrative. Not at all.:

Because he plans to “pay” for it by ordering the Treasury to print trillions of new dollars every year, devaluing the currency in the process. Same way he plans to pay for free college and all his other mindless socialist ideas. It’s the Venezuela model.:

Eric “Because the Government has nukes” Swalwell entered the presidential race, solely to play the role of the Democrat Party’s stalking horse on gun control.:

Andy McCarthy had a great piece on the Obama Cabal’s spying operation on the Trump Campaign.:

Yikes. Running Roy Moore for that senate seat again would be like Texas Democrats running Wendy Davis as their gubernatorial candidate again.:

Here’s my Campaign Update on San Fran Nan’s efforts to control her radical Kiddie Caucus by putting them in semi-time out.:

Tea Biscuits everywhere stand highly insulted by this tweet from the inimitable James Woods.:

Irish Bob O’Rourke was too busy riding a skateboard in his sheep suit.:

The slow turning of Fox News continues…:

Our fake news media barely noticed, but realeasing the Mueller Report wasn’t the only important action taken by Attorney General William Barr this week.:

CNN’s real competition isn’t Fox News or MSNBC, it’s TLC and The Food Network.:

Gosh, I wonder what tipped him off?:

Best, most prescient meme of the week here.:

Brit Hume tipped me off to one of the best things I’ve read all year. You should read it, too.:

I’m old enough to remember when journalists were trained to bitch and moan whenever public officials refused to hold press conferences. Now, they bitch and moan when the Attorney General holds one. It’s all so despicable.:

All carbon tax proposals are nothing more than money-grabbing scams.  Every one of them. Remember this key fact of political life – it will serve you well in the future.:

Tim Young is the hammer, liberals are his nails.:

I’m always happy to be of service to others.:

And just like that, here we go.:

President Trump offers the most concise summary of the 400-page Mueller Witch Hunt Report.:

….aaaaannnnnndddd the celebration at the White House begins.:

The media reaction to Barr’s release of the Mueller Report was highly-predictable, and oh, so entertaining.:

….they were still melting down the next day, to no one’s surprise.:

Their behavior was so abhorrent that they’d even lost Geraldo Rivera, for crying out loud.:

Chris Cuomo looked like a deer in the headlights.  Ok, he always looks like a deer in the headlights, but still…:

Meet the new #NeverTrump talking points, same as the old #NeverTrump talking points. So tiresome.:

Fauxcahontas was on the warpath, sending out smoke signals demaning scalps!:

….aaaannnnnddd reliable old NBC News led the charge with the new officially-approved joint Media/Democrat talking points, as the goal posts shifted yet again.:

And finally, Mitt Romney saw what he thought was a chance to advance his own presidential ambitions by jumping in with the Democrat/Media propaganda complex, because of course he did.:

What an amazing week it was, huh?

Happy Easter to you all!

That is all.

A Snake Named Mitt Emerges From the Grass

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

Situational outrage, by Mitt Romney. – Mitt Romney still thinks he can become president. That fact was obvious throughout his 2018 senatorial campaign, and it is obvious in every public statement he’s made since buying that Utah senate seat. He didn’t come to the senate to represent the interests of the people of Utah; he came there for pure self-aggrandizement purposes. He’s there solely to undermine President Donald Trump, and see if he can somehow work with Bill Kristol and the few dozen remaining #NeverTrump fake Republicans to weasel his way into the 2020 GOP presidential nomination.

Thus, Romney’s statement about the Mueller report issued yesterday comes as no surprise at all. Here’s what he said:

So, just as Romney refused to actually campaign against Barack Obama in 2012, refused to offer any cogent criticism of his radical leftist opponent or go after him in any truly meaningful way, he still refuses to point his crooked finger of criticism at the real opposition today. Romney’s “sickened” reading all the gossip and unfounded innuendo put into the Mueller Report by 19 Clinton/Obama hacks, but he is not at all sickened by these actual facts:

  • Romney is not sickened by the fact that the Democrats conspired with the fake news media for three solid years to push a “Russia Collusion” conspiracy theory;
  • Romney is not sickened by the fact that Special Counsel has proven that conspiracy theory to be a total and complete fraud;
  • He is not sickened by the fact that the Hillary Clinton Campaign and DNC spent $11 million conspiring with agents from Great Britain and Russia to compile the phony “Trump Dossier” that became the foundation for the conspiracy theory;
  • He is not sickened by the fact that, in the wake of being revealed to be massive frauds, neither the Democrats nor anyone in the fake news media has offered any sort of apology for their anti-American efforts to undermine a duly elected president and our democracy;
  • He is not sickened by the fact that a cabal of deep state operatives within the DOJ/FBI worked first to fix the 2016 election in favor of the Pantsuit Princess, and then worked to effect an actual, real coup d’etat designed to fraudulently remove a sitting President;
  • Mitt Romney, ostensibly a “Republican”, is not sickened by the likelihood that this cabal’s efforts have hampered the ability of a duly-elected President to properly staff his administration and do the work of the American people, and that those efforts most likely enabled the Democrats to capture control of the House of Representatives in 2018;
  • Mitt Romney, supposed upstanding American, is not sickened by the fact that Robert Mueller and his Gestapo-like tactics have destroyed the lives of many American citizens, including a real, true American hero in General Mike Flynn.

That list of things that sicken you and me but do not even phase Mitt Romney could go on and on and on. But being sickened by any of those things would not help this self-absorbed jerk advance his goal of snaking his way into the GOP nomination in 2020. So, why bother, right?

Right.

Mitt Romney’s sensibilities and ethics are purely situational.

 

Donald Trump is who he is, and he wears that personal reality right out there on his sleeve for everyone to see. You can like him or not like him, but he has been a damned-effective President despite the massive conspiracy designed to stop him. And the best thing about him is that he is completely transparent, unlike any of his most public critics, most especially the fake-Republican snakes in the grass like Mitt Romney.

Here’s the bottom line: Mitt lost; Trump won.

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:
