Actual Vote: Just 10% of Democrats Support Our Law Enforcement Officials

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Today’s news from California.  Oh, my. – A scheme to infest the U.S. Congress with an additional four nitwit senators from California by splitting the state into three parts was slapped down by the California Supreme Court on Wednesday:

The court said in an en banc decision Wednesday that “significant questions have been raised regarding the proposition’s validity” and that “the potential harm in permitting the measure to remain on the ballot outweighs the potential harm in delaying the proposition to a future election.”

So, the Republic is safe for now, though the insidious proposal will almost certainly come up again in 2 years, and 2 years after that, and 2 years after that…

Meanwhile, just in case some of you agree with former FBI Director and current teenage drama queen James Comey that we can trust the Democrat Party to protect our nation, the Democrats in San Francisco began handing out voter registration cards to illegal immigrants on Monday.  City officials claim that this is just to allow parents who have kids in the public school to vote in school elections, but no one really believes that.  No word yet on whether California Democrats will send activists over to Tehran and start registering the Mullahs, too, but it seems just a matter of time.

Also in San Francisco, in case you missed it late last week, new Mayor London Breed (yes, that’s her name) told the media that her city is full of, well, poop.  I swear I don’t make this stuff up – who could?

“I will say there is more feces on the sidewalks than I’ve ever seen growing up here,” Breed said.  “That is a huge problem and we are not just talking about from dogs — we’re talking about from humans.”

Oh, that.

The Mayor’s solution to the problem?  You can’t make that up, either:  She proposes to “educate” the city’s massive and growing population of homeless people to “clean up after themselves.”

Somehow, I don’t think this is going to end well.

Here’s an idea:  How about we replace that whole “3 state” idea with that “CalExit” ballot measure that would allow Californians to vote to secede, and put it on a fast track?  Our country would be much safer – and far less poopy – if we got that one done.

Your Democrats in Action! Part I – With their whole “A Better Deal” slogan having come up a crapper (sorry, I still have California on my mind) with the voters, House Democrats on Wednesday unveiled a new, improved and highly poll-tested tag for their mid-term election campaigns:  “For The People.”

Yeah!  All right!  Man, is that inspiring, or what?

Wait, though.  For ‘which’ people?  For the illegal immigrants in San Francisco?  Those people?  For the MS-13 gang members, in who San Fran Nan Pelosi sees “the spark of divinity”?  Those people?  For the felons whose voting rights Democrats are working to restore all over the country, because they know most of them will vote Democrat?  Those people?  Which people?

I can’t help wondering if any member of the House Democrat Caucus thought through the implications of the fact that the most logical abbreviation of their new, inspiring slogan happens to be “F the People,” which, of course, is how Democrats feel about all of us actual non-felon American citizens and anyone living out here in Flyover Country.

Probably not.  That’s why they’re Democrats.

Your Democrats in Action!  Part II –  As a part of their recent massive expression of hysterical outrage and virtue signaling over the fake border “crisis”, several congressional Democrats co-sponsored a bill that would abolish ICE, the federal Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency, even though ICE has literally nothing to do with the manner in which illegal aliens are housed in border detention facilities.

Seeing an opportunity to make a political point, House GOP leaders first decided to bring the Democrat bill quickly to the floor for a vote, so every Democrat would have to go on record as either supporting or not supporting the irrational, illiterate desires of their vapid anti-American voter base.  Naturally, the Democrat sponsors of the legislation panicked and pulled their proposal.

So the GOP leaders came with a proposal of their own yesterday, a simple resolution of support for the “officers and personnel who carry out the important mission of the United States Immigration and Customs Enforcement.”  A no-brainer for any patriotic American who actually supports our law enforcement officials, right?  Right.

Not exactly, since just 18 Democrats voted in favor of this resolution, roughly 10% of the total Democrat members of the House, with 13 actually voting against it.  At least those 13 had the guts to vote how they really feel about it.  Another 133 Democrats simply voted “present”, the most cowardly act any member of congress can take on any piece of legislation.

And, as so often happens, President Trump tweeted on this very subject as I was typing this piece:

Spooky how he does that, huh?

So, to be clear, just 10% of Democrats in the U.S. House of Representatives, when it comes down to actually casting a vote – the clearest way for any policymaker to express his or her true views – support our federal law enforcement officials.  Put that in your pocket to be whipped out next time some social justice warrior accuses you of treason for criticizing the outright seditionists who remain in the FBI.

Just another day in Democrats hate law enforcement America.

That is all.

While Pelosi Dodders, House GOP Leaders Dither

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Hey, remember when Democrats pretended to thing “ageism” was a bad thing?  Yeah, not any more.  – San Fran Nan, the 78 year-old leader of the Democrat minority in the U.S. House of Representatives, finds herself increasingly under bigoted attack over her advanced age from her opposition these days.  The hilarious thing about it, though, is that Ms. Pelosi’s “opposition” these days comes not from any right-wing forces, but from her fellow Democrats in the House.

Turns out the youngsters in the Democrat caucus are growing more than a tad frustrated over the lock on power exercised for more than a decade now by Pelosi and her fellow House Democrat leaders, Stenny Hoyer and James Clyburn, both of whom are also well into their late ’70s.  The latest dig at the Party’s retirement home leadership came on Wednesday from 50 year-old California Rep. Linda Sanchez, who was quoted as saying she wants to be part of a transition to a new set of Party leaders.

“I think it’s time for that generational change,” Sanchez told reporters Wednesday. “I want to be part of that transition, because I don’t intend to stay in Congress until I’m in my 70s.”  Yikes.

The Democrat plan had been to a) win back control of the House this fall; b) let Pelosi then serve one more 2-year stint as speaker; c) retain control of the House in 2020, allowing the then-80 year-old Pelosi to go out on top; and d) turn over the speakership to New York Rep. Joe Crowley, who would be a comparatively very young 59 years of age.  But of course, the 28 year-old socialist community organizer Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez threw a monkey wrench into those gears a few weeks ago by defeating the hapless Crowley in the party’s primary.

So, with no clear plan of succession, a political equation that increasingly looks as if the plan to retake the House is just another fake media-fed pipe dream, and a Minority Leader who can’t remember the name of the Senate Majority Leader she’s worked with for more than 30 years, frustration among the “younger” set in the Democrat caucus is closing in on the boiling point.  And there it will most likely remain following this year’s mid-term elections, since the Democrats are well along their way in the process of blowing their best chance in years to regain one lever of federal power by re-taking the House.

Couldn’t happen to a nicer bunch of people.

Speaking of ineffectual members of congress, it’s not just limited to those on the Democrat side of the aisle.  A group of GOP leaders in the House have now spent so many weeks whining on Twitter about the stonewalling of their various committee investigations by the FBI and DOJ that they are now in danger of being remembered as little than a collection of boys who cried wolf.

Those leading Republicans are:

  • House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte
  • House Oversight Committee Chairman Trey Gowdy
  • House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes
  • House Freedom Caucus  co-Founder Jim Jordan

These gentlemen – all of whom are deserving of much respect from conservatives – have spent months now issuing subpoenas for documents, demanding witness appearances and setting deadlines that are never met while threatening to take punitive action, and then doing nothing when Rod Rosenstein and Christopher Wray inevitably give them the proverbial finger.

It was three weeks ago now that these guys – supposedly with the sign-off from Speaker Paul Ryan – threatened to pursue contempt and even impeachment action against Rosenstein if their document requests weren’t met in 7 days.  That 7-day deadline came and went – as have a long series of such deadlines since last fall – and the House has done exactly nothing in response.

The latest kerfuffle from these guys came on Wednesday, when the ex-lover of FBI Super Duper Agent Peter Strzok, former DOJ lawyer Lisa Page, simply ignored a subpoena from Goodlatte to come before his committee to offer sworn testimony over her role in the DOJ’s efforts to fix the 2016 elections in favor of Hillary Clinton.

Chairman Goodlatte and Rep. Jordan immediately took to their Twitter accounts in response:

Well, yes, and?  What?  With all due respect, gentlemen, what are you going to do?  Is this it?  At long last, has the majority party in the U.S. House of Representatives become so de-fanged, so timid under its milquetoast establishment leadership that its only recourse to open defiance of its authority by deep state officials is to issue petulant tweets?  If it wanted to, the Judiciary Committee could hold Page in contempt and send the Capitol Police to her home to place her under arrest.  Why not do that?

But given that Jordan, just a few days after going after Rosenstein in a public hearing, found himself the target of one of the most blatant deep state hit jobs in modern history, maybe this is it.  After all, the most obvious intent of going after Jordan with un-provable – and un-disprovable – allegations that he ignored sexual improprieties by a long-dead wrestling team doctor while serving as an assistant coach at Ohio State University decades ago is to intimidate Jordan and anyone else thinking about going after Rosenstein and his fellow thugs at DOJ.

If that’s the strategy, it seems to be working.

Just another day the deep state isn’t going away quietly America.

That is all.

First They Came for Donald Trump and we did Nothing; Then They Came for Jim Jordan…

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Tired of all this Winning yet? –  San Fran Nan and her fellow Democrats recoiled in horror at yet another fantastic jobs report, as the private sector added another 213,000 new jobs in June, once again beating analyst expectations.  The jobs report includes new record low unemployment for Hispanic workers and continued record low unemployment for Black workers.  Thus, Democrats went into a panic, with Pelosi issuing a statement claiming that “Donald Trump’s reckless policies are hurting millions of hardworking families.”

Because lying shamelessly is all they got.

A classic case of reflection projection. – After looking in her mirror and asking “Mirror, mirror, on the wall, who’s the fairest of them all?” but getting back only an image of an utterly sick and twisted woman, MSNBC fake journalist Mika Brzezinski decided to call Ivanka Trump an “utterly sick” and “twisted” individual.  It’s like a Walt Disney movie over there at Morning Joe.

A failed attempt to change the subject at NBC. – Scared to death that Donald Trump’s challenge to fake Indian Senator Elizabeth Warren that she take a DNA test to prove her specious claim of Indian ancestry might ultimately prove fatal to their favorite Democrat senator, the news fakers at NBC News decided to move into preemptive strike mode, issued a fake “fact check” on Friday in which they claim that DNA tests just don’t really work so good on Native Americans.  No, really, they did that.  I swear I don’t make this stuff up, but NBC sure does.

NBC’s fake rationale is that, golly, DNA tests don’t really provide proof of “tribal citizenship”, as if that is what anyone is asking for.  In fact, all anyone is asking for is some proof that Warren – a lifelong fraud who has profited richly from the obviously false claim of Indian heritage and based an entire political career on it – in fact has Indian blood coursing through her veins.  “Tribal citizenship” is completely irrelevant to anything, but NBC is so desperate to cover for its favorite Democrat in the Senate that it comes up with this nonsense.  And people in the fake news media wonder why they are so utterly detested by most Americans.

Remember, if they can do this to Jim Jordan, they can do it to you. – Ohio Congressman Jim Jordan has become the latest target of the Deep State cabal.  Less than a week after he humiliated head Deep State honcho Rod Rosenstein in a hearing before the House Judiciary Committee, several former wrestlers for Ohio State – where Jordan was an assistant wrestling coach back in the day – suddenly came scurrying out of the woodwork to level allegations that Jordan was aware that a team doctor (now conveniently dead, of course) was sexually abusing team members and did nothing to stop it.

The accusations center around allegations that the team doctor insisted on giving team members hernia tests each time he examined them.  For all you ladies and those who never played high school sports, the hernia test consists of the the doctor placing two fingers underneath a man’s testicles and telling the athlete to turn his head and cough.  If you went out for football, basketball or baseball, you were administered one of these tests by the team doctor before the season’s first practice, and likely any time you sustained any sort of injury, if your doctor was cautious.

Given the extreme physical nature of the sport of wrestling, it’s actually very easy to see why a team’s doctor would want to conduct such exams more frequently, and any group of high school and college-aged men would inevitably resort to joking about such an uncomfortable process.  One of Jordan’s accusers – who was of course given copious air time by CNN this week – even stated that the doctor administered this test every time a wrestler had to be examined.  This is not “sexual abuse,” this is a doctor doing his job.

Out of this, we now have a handful of former Ohio State wrestlers suing the University with claims the the doctor was a “serial groper”, as one of the wrestlers put it on CNN.  And guess what law firm happens to be representing the plaintiffs?  None other than the infamous Perkins Coie, the same firm that was paid millions by the Clinton Campaign and the DNC to dummy up the fake Trump Dossier during the 2016 presidential campaign.  The same firm that has close ties to DOJ lawyer Bruce Ohr, who officed just two doors down from …wait for it…Rod Rosenstein before he was demoted last December.

So now Congressman Jordan – who just happens to be one of the three candidates to succeed the outgoing Paul Ryan as Speaker of the House – finds himself having to somehow defend himself over vague accusations that he “had to know” that a doctor was doing someone’s notion of too many testicular exams of his wrestling team’s members.  It’s like having to respond when a lawyer asks you “how often to you beat your kids?”

This is the Deep State in action, folks.  It is slimy like James Comey, oily like Rod Rosenstein and as un-American as Barack Obama’s legacy.  If they can do this to Jim Jordan, a powerful congressman from Ohio, just think what they can do to you.

Just another day in the DC Swamp is alive and well America.

That is all.

20 lb. Bags of Poop, Pelosi, Feinstein, and Harris – What do These Things Have in Common?

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

CNN and MSNBC will demonize him for violating traffic laws.:  Eric Trump caused panic among his Secret Service security detail on Monday when he rushed into New York City rush hour traffic to wave down a passing ambulance.  He took this action in an attempt to aid a woman who had passed out near a train station.  No word yet if Maxine Waters will now urge New York City’s drivers to run down anyone named Trump who rushes into a street to save a potentially dying woman, but it seems only a matter of time.

Hey, better late than never, right? – More than 7 months after he panicked global stock markets by rushing to air a completely false report claiming that Gen. Mike Flynn was rolling over on President Trump, ABC’s long-time fake reporter Brian Ross finally got his walking papers on Monday.  The New York Post reports that Ross was allowed to resign by his ABC fake news masters, but in a clue that it wasn’t exactly voluntary, his long-time producer, Rhonda Schwartz, is also moving on to pursue – as they say in the corporate world – other opportunities.

Hey, don’t be sad, guys – you’ll fit right in over at MSNBC or the New York Times.  Tons of “other opportunities” out there for news fakers these days.

After all, Ali Watkins, the NYTimes reporter who was sleeping with not one, but two staffers of the corrupt Senate Intelligence Committee in order to get scoops, still has her job.  Chris Matthews, the fake host at MSNBC who has been accused by multiple women of creating a “hostile work environment” on the set of his daily show, still has his job.  Joy Ann Reid, the fake MSNBC host who has been revealed to be a heinous gay basher, still has her job as well.

It may have taken ABC 7 long months to drum up some ethical standards, but there are plenty of fake news outlets out there that have no standards at all, so Ross and Schwartz won’t remain unemployed for long.

Speaking of the promiscuous Ali Watkins, we should also remember that the recent indictment of Senate Intel Staffer James Wolfe lists not one, but four fake news reporters to whom he was feeding classified information.  While the indictment does not cite these reporters by name, it does provide a good deal of detail about their activities.  Some independent investigators have concluded from these activities that the person identified as “reporter no. 4” in the indictment is very likely…wait for it…Brian Ross of ABC News.

So, there may be more – much more – to the Brian Ross story than the world currently understands.  We won’t know for sure unless and until Mr. Wolfe goes to trial.  Somebody pass me the popcorn.

If you want to witness a post-apocalyptic world, you don’t need Netflix – just take a vacation to San Francisco. – SFGate has a report this morning that someone deposited a 20-lb. bag of human waste on a street corner in the city’s “tenderloin district” on Monday.  Tellingly, a spokesperson for the city’s Public Works Department commented that, thanks to the new city ordinance that allows urinating and defecation in public, reports of human waste on the streets are common.  But the good news is that bags of this poundage are “not typical.”

Unfortunately, that particular qualifier implies that a bag filled with 20 lbs. of human waste on a city street corner is also not unprecedented.  Can it really be any accident at all that Dianne Feinstein, Nancy Pelosi and Kamala Harris all hail from this particular city?

And speaking of Kamala Harris, the California Senator issued a tweet on Monday with the following statement:  “As a career prosecutor, I actually went after gangs and transnational criminal organizations. That’s being a leader on public safety. What is not, is ripping babies from their mothers.”

Note to Sen. Harris:  The phrase “ripping babies from their mothers” is probably not the best imagery for someone who is a rabid supporter of the Planned Parenthood abortion mills to use, on Twitter or anywhere else.

Every time you get to thinking you can’t possibly think any worse of Barack Obama, he turns to Michelle and says “hold my beer.” – It turns out that the act of loading up several cargo planes with $1.7 billion in cash and shipping them over to Tehran was just not quite enough mendacity for Barack Obama to commit while he was giving away the world in his “negotiations” with the Mullahs.

Thanks to Fox News, we now learn that the blessedly former President also summarily granted U.S. citizenship to no fewer than 2,500 friends and relatives of Iranian public officials as he and John Kerry desperately tried to get a deal in place throughout 2015.  The source for this claim is one Hojjat al-Islam Mojtaba Zolnour, chairman of Iran’s parliamentary nuclear committee.  Given the scope and scale of the myriad un-American actions undertaken by Obama and his band of evil minions during the darkest 8 years in U.S. history, there is no reason at all to disbelieve Mr. Zolnour.

Naturally, both Mr. Obama and Mr. Kerry are not commenting on the matter.

Just another day in the scope of Obama mendacity just keeps growing America.

That is all.

The Horowitz and Wray Show Comes to Capitol Hill

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Happy Father’s Day!  – Pretending to suddenly be concerned about the children of illegal aliens who have illegally crossed into the United States, social justice warriors took to social media on Saturday in outrage that many Americans would be celebrating Father’s day on Sunday.  I celebrated Father’s Day with my family anyway, and even worse, cooked delicious, juicy animal meat in the form of beef and chicken fajitas for my wifey, children and grandchildren to consume.  They loved me for it.  So there.

San Fran Nan is outraged, too. – Doddering old Nancy Pelosi, who after a lifetime of supposed “public service” can somehow afford to live in a multi-million dollar home protected by a wall in one of the priciest neighborhoods in San Francisco, and who owns several other homes to boot, attacked “people of faith” on Sunday for not caring about the plight of illegal aliens.  You can be sure that Ms. Pelosi, who claims to be a practicing Catholic, won’t be selling any of her homes to raise money to support these immigrants, or tear down her property’s wall to set a good example for the rest of the country.  Because, well, liberals.

Big Drama coming this week on multiple fronts. – Today and tomorrow, DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz and FBI Director Christopher Wray will go to capitol hill to offer testimony about the report he released last Thursday on the FBI’s fake investigation into the Clinton email scandal during 2016.  Horowitz and Wray will testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee today and before the House Judiciary Committee on Tuesday.

We can expect Director Wray to deflect, dissemble, refuse to answer based on false claims of “protecting sources” or other classic dodges used by FBI Directors in such situations, because he has clearly demonstrated he is just another feckless bureaucrat whose main goal is not the revelation of the truth, but the covering of his and his utterly corrupt department’s ass. That’s what we saw from him in his god-awful press conference last Thursday following the report’s release, and there is no reason whatsoever to expect anything different from him today or tomorrow.

Horowitz, however, is a different matter entirely.  Unlike Wray, he is not a guy with a history of obfuscating and deflecting in this kind of setting.  In his past testimonies to congress he has pretty much always been blunt and clear in answering questions posed to him.

What will be interesting to see with Horowitz will be to observe whether he bases his testimony on what was written – most likely by Wray, Rod Rosenstein and others – in the Executive Summary to his report, or if he bases his testimony on what is contained in the actual body of the report.  Because while the Executive Summary claims his report finds “no documentary evidence” that political bias influenced the fake investigation, the body of the report details all manner of not just bias, but outright hostility towards Donald Trump influencing pretty much every decision made in the conduct of what really amounted to a cover-up operation favoring the Pantsuit Princess.

And where the Executive Summary to the report claims to have revealed no criminal wrongdoing on the part of anyone at the FBI, the body of the report details all sorts of criminal actions, including the taking of bribes and leaking of classified information on the part of multiple bad actors within the FBI.  Thus, which part of the report Horowitz chooses to reference in his answers to questions from Republican members of these committees – the Democrat members will all just do what they can to continue to support the cover-up – will be key.  Horowitz has a history of trying to do the right thing in the face of obstruction and blow-back from his superiors within DOJ.  We can only hope that continues to be the case.

The other bit of drama we may finally, at long last see this week will be some real pushback from the GOP leadership in the House of Representatives over the DOJ’s and FBI’s ongoing refusal to comply with perfectly valid and legal requests by several committees for documents.  Speaker Paul Ryan is finally personally engaging in the controversy, having attended a Friday night meeting in which he, Devin Nunes, Trey Gowdy and Bob Goodlatte (chairmen of House Oversight, Intelligence and Judiciary committees, respectively) met with Wray and Rosenstien to hammer out a final deal on provision of said documents.

The group is supposed to meet again today, after which DOJ supposedly has promised compliance of some sort.  Nunes and Gowdy were both very plain-spoken in media interviews on the matter Sunday:

From Nunes:  “My patience  has run out. I believe that they have leaked — they created massive leaks. We know that from the I.G. Report. Inspector Horowitz showed us these major, major gaffes…here’s the bottom line.  Mr. Rosenstein, the deputy attorney general, and Director Wray have to decide whether or not they want to be part of the cleanup crew or they want to be part of the cover-up crew.  That’s really the decision that they have to make for themselves here. The best way they can be part of the cleanup of this mess is give us all the documents this week, so that we can put this behind us and let the American people begin to heal.”

From Gowdy:  “Paul Ryan led this meeting… And Paul made it very clear; there’s going to be action on the floor of the House this week if the FBI and DOJ do not comply with our subpoena request.  So Rod Rosenstein, Chris Wray you were in the meeting, you understood him just as clearly as I did. We’re going to get compliance or the House of Representatives is going to use its full arsenal of constitutional weapons to gain compliance.”

This all, of course, comes on the heels of a very rancorous meeting between most of these same principles last week, during which the perpetually oily and abusive Rosenstein actually threatened to subpoena the phone and email records of the members of congress and their staff in retaliation for conducting their constitutional oversight duties.  So it’s pretty easy to see why everyone’s nerves would be on end over this situation.

Of course, the problem these committee chairmen have is that congress’s power in this situation is fairly limited.  Our constitutional balance of powers envision that patriotic, competent and loyal people will be appointed to these high positions within the Department of Justice.  We know today that that was definitely not what happened in the Barack Obama Administration, and the jury is just barely still out on Wray, Rosenstein and Jeff Sessions.  Based on that assumption of good faith, the founding fathers did not give congress many powers to effectively combat a corrupted DOJ.

About the worst congress could do in this situation would be to initiate impeachment proceedings against Rosenstein and Wray, something Nunes and Goodlatte have threatened to do in the past.  But if these guys are corrupt enough to engage in this stonewalling operation for over a year now, and they know that there is not a single Senate Democrat honest enough to vote to remove them from office, what do they care?

So there will be drama, because we can be sure DOJ and the FBI are not going to comply with these latest congressional demands, but at the end of the day it will almost certainly end up being a lot of sound and fury that ends up signifying nothing.

Just another day in the drama never ends America.

That is all.

That “Blue Wave” May Be About to Become a “Red Flood”

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Irrelevant.  Americans today need to know what too much #WINNING does to them. – The National Centers for Environmental Information (there’s your all-time politically correct name) issued a report on Monday that says that watching too much bad news can be hazardous to one’s health.  So now you know why all of your Democrat friends are feeling so bad these days.

Where were these guys when Obama and Kerry were surrendering to Iran’s Mullahs? – Senate Democrats, feeling a sudden need to pretend to care about U.S. national security – something that historically only happens when a Republican president is about to achieve a major foreign policy victory for the country – issued their list of “demands” for what President Trump must include in any treaty with North Korea that will need to be ratified in the Senate.

These demands include the following:

  1. The deal must include the dismantlement and removal of all nuclear, chemical, and biological weapons from North Korea.
  2. The U.S. must ensure a “complete and verifiable denuclearization of North Korea,” removing all items related to nuclear-weapons production to prevent the country from reversing course.
  3. North Korea must end its ballistic-missile program as well.
  4. North Korea must comply with “anywhere, anytime” inspections to ensure it is not cheating on the deal, and sanctions must be immediately restored if it does cheat.
  5. The deal must be permanent.

If it strikes you that this list of “demands” reads like the list of goals the Trump Administration has been talking about in advance of the June 12 summit meeting in Singapore, that’s because they basically are one and the same.

Look, the Democrats are beginning to panic about their prospects in November’s mid-term elections.  Bereft of any bright policy ideas of their own which might attract new voters, they are now going about the process of attempting to co-opt conservative positions on issues, starting with the negotiations with North Korea.  This is what Bill Clinton taught them to do in 1996, and it’s what they’ve tried in every election cycle since that time.

Just a couple of months ago they and their fake news media agents were convinced that they were headed towards a grand victory, a “Blue Wave” that would see them win a majority in the U.S. House of Representatives, maybe the Senate as well, and make sweeping gains in state governorships and legislative houses all over the country.

But what had once been as much as an 18-point lead in congressional generic preference polling has now essentially disappeared as the Trump tax cuts have kicked the economy into high gear and good news for America continues to pour in from around the world.  Americans are becoming optimistic about the future again – one recent “right direction/wrong direction” shows the “right direction” answer coming in at its highest level in many years – and that is never a positive sign for the eternally depressed and negative Democrats, who rely on human misery and suffering to build voter support.

Think about it:  Have you seen a single Democrat politician or liberal talking head on your television talk about what a great thing it is that the Black and Hispanic rates of unemployment are at all-time lows?  No, of course you haven’t.  Democrats don’t want Blacks and Hispanics to have jobs – Democrats want Blacks and Hispanics to be dependent on the government because that’s the best way to ensure they will continue to vote in overwhelming majorities for Democrats.

So, Democrat “leaders” – such as they are – see all this good news taking place, they see Kanye West and other young African American leaders beginning to speak out about this orthodoxy they’ve held in place for half a century, and they have no idea at all what to do about it other than to resort back to the “triangulation” tactic they’ve employed in every election cycle for 22 years.  That’s what this Korea canard is all about, and you’re going to see more of that kind of co-option of GOP positions taking place in the coming weeks.

Because the reality is that, as we sit here today, the overarching national momentum in this election cycle is firmly behind the Republicans now, just as the overarching mood of the public had moved behind Donald Trump’s candidacy at this point in 2016.  That could change between now and November, but it would take some extraordinary paradigm-shifting event to make it happen.

When you see San Fran Nan advocating for additional tax cuts and Chuckie Schumer out in Chicago or Detroit or Baltimore talking about the need to get tough on crime, you’ll know for sure that the once-vaunted “Blue Wave” is about to turn into a “Red Flood.”  This is all very predictable.

About that Bill Clinton interview… – It occurs to me this morning that this NBC interview with Bill Clinton and an extremely uncomfortable James Patterson is a real teaching moment for Millennials.  Because this is the first time in their adult lives that they have seen the real Bill Clinton that we all had to deal with throughout the decade of the ’90s put on display for everyone to see.

There he was in all his sociopathic glory, shifting blame, denying responsibility, angry at being questioned, refusing to apologize and pretending that it is indeed he who is the actual victim here.  Bill’s all about the whole #MeToo movement, only in his mind it’s all about him, not the many women he abused throughout his adult life.  Poor, poor persecuted Bill.  Why, I kept waiting for him to toss out the whole “vast rightwing conspiracy” canard just for fun.

Here’s a hint for all you Millennials who were not really following politics while Bill was chasing 22 year-old interns around the Oval Office:  The most telling line of that entire interview is when he says, when asked about his Monica Lewinsky scandal, “Nobody believes I got out of that for free. I left the White House $16 million in debt.”

See, with the Clintons, it was always all about the money.  Bill and Hillary Clinton are America’s Greatest Grifters.  Everything they did, every office they sought was all about what was in it for them.  Their having debt at the end of Bill’s terms in office – fact-checkers show it wasn’t really even close to the number Billy boy tossed out – was in their minds justification for having Hillary turn her gig as Obama’s Secretary of State into a classic mob influence racket in which she was only too happy to sell U.S. foreign policy decisions to the highest bidders.

The Clintons – both of them – were always just in it for the money.  They were always looking for their next scam.  For Hillary, being elected President was going to be the most glorious scam of all.

Be happy she didn’t make it there.

Just another day in Panicking Democrats America.

That is all.

With Enemies Like Nancy Pelosi, Republicans Don’t Need Friends

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

The rules, they are a-changin’. – This was the week we learned that the long-detested and off-limits “C”-word is now just fine to use in public.  If you don’t think that’s going to be the net result of leftist celebrities like Sally Field and the execrable Michael Moore praising really bad comic Samantha Bee for her use of the term to describe First Daughter Ivanka Trump, you’re living in a dream world.

After all, defining deviancy down is what left-wingers do best, and they’ve been doing it for more than half a century now.

Remember when Bill Clinton told us that having oral sex with Monica Lewinsky in the Oval Office was ok because, hey, oral sex isn’t really sex?  Wasn’t that wonderful?  Remember what happened shortly afterwards?

Within a few months, we began to be flooded with stories about kids having oral sex in high schools, junior highs and even elementary schools all over the country because hey, that isn’t really sex.  What, is there a rule against that or something?

So get ready for the coming stream of stories about kids in 3rd grade calling each other the “C” word and school officials having to explain to outraged parents that their offended daughters should just get over it because Sally Field said it was really just fine.  Because that’s what’s coming.

Hey, remember when Obama made a point of posing in front of that mural of Che Guevara?  Yeah, good times…good times… – Bernie Sanders, who has spent his life idolizing Josef Stalin and Fidel Castro, told a fake reporter on Friday that President Trump “kind of likes all the authoritarian leaders.”  No kidding, he really said that.  I swear I don’t make this stuff up.

Speaking of clueless Democrats, how about that San Fran Nan Pelosi?  Isn’t she a pistol?  A reader asked me yesterday when, oh, when are the rank and file Democrats in congress going to get rid of this doddering nitwit as their leader in the House?  Don’t they realize she’s going to kill them in the midterms?

These are great questions – we’ll get to the answers in a minute.  But first, let’s review Pelosi’s endorsements and condemnations in just the last two weeks:

She has endorsed:

  • The ultra-violent MS-13 gang;
  • Kim Jong Un;
  • Hamas, which has been classified by the U.S. State Department as a terrorist organization since 1998;
  • Raising taxes;
  • Impeachment;

She has condemned:

  • A 3.7% record low rate of unemployment;
  • Record low Black and Hispanic unemployment;
  • Tax cuts;
  • Rapidly expanding economic growth;
  • The effort to denuclearize the Korean Peninsula;
  • Accelerating wage growth;

This is not the makings of a winning campaign platform for the Democrats’ down-trodden congressional candidates.

Now, the answers to the readers’ questions:  Yes, they realize she’s killing them, and no, she’s not going anywhere anytime soon.  She is clinging to her power like a rabid squirrel clinging to its last acorn.

Isn’t that great news for Republicans?  Why yes, yes it is.

After all, if the fake news media had any standards, it wouldn’t be fake! – MSNBC announced on Saturday that it is will continue its pursuit of CNN for the title of Fakest Outlet In The Fake News Universe by hiring former Obama advisor Ben Rhodes to be its newest fake news analyst.  You might remember Mr. Rhodes as being most famous for going around bragging about having created an “echo chamber” within the national news media on the horrible Iran deal by strategically lying to all the “20-something” naive fake reporters.

Hey, if you’re gonna go fake, you might as well go all-in.

In other news, the Fox News channel has been the #1-rated cable news network for 197 consecutive months.  Proving yet again that liberals have zero sense of self-awareness or ability to engage in real introspective thought.

Just another day in the rules, they are a-changin’ America.

That is all.

Great News For America is Always Horrible News For Democrats. It’s a Rule.

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Yeah, that?  It’s not a good idea.  But please go ahead and do it anyway. – The genius program managers at ABC, panicked over the loss of their highest-rated spring program thanks to Roseanne Barr’s Twitter meltdown earlier this week, have now come up with the not-so-brilliant idea of doing a spinoff of “Roseanne” focused on the daughter, Darlene, played by the career mediocrity Sarah Gilbert.  Yeah, that’s not going to work, but I sure do hope they try.  It’s always fun watching these network sleazeballs fail.

Mr. Trudeau also requests that you all refrain from farting for the next 10 days. – And hey, the liberals up in Canada aren’t any better.  In preparations for hosting the upcoming G7 conference in Ottowa, boy king Justin Trudeau’s government has instructed the region’s farmers to avoid spreading manure-based fertilizers on their fields while the leaders from Italy, France, Germany, Great Britain, Japan and the U.S. are in town.  Wouldn’t want the international guests to experience any nasty odors, you know.

No word yet on whether the boy king has also placed travel bans into the country on Michael Moore, Samantha Bee and Kathy Griffin, but it seems likely.

 

Tired of all this Winning yet?  Part I – The news on the economy continues to be fantastic, with another tremendous jobs report for April, unemployment equaling the all-time low recorded since the statistic began to be measured in 1969, the labor participation rate at its highest in a decade, and black and Hispanic unemployment rates also at all-time lows.

The Atlanta branch of the Federal Reserve’s GDPNow forecast model now estimates second quarter GDP growth will come in at a whopping 4.8 percent, well above the 3% Trump target which was labeled impossible to achieve by America’s Biggest Mistake, Barack Obama.  Remember all the Obamatons’ talk about the “new normal” of 0-2% economic growth forever?  Funny, we don’t hear anyone saying that anymore.

The economy also added more than 20,000 manufacturing jobs during the single month of April.  Those are the jobs you may remember that Obama, speaking at an event at a Caterpillar location, told us were those old jobs that were “never coming back.”  Remember that?  The folks at booming Caterpillar certainly do.  When Donald Trump talked about bringing those jobs back on the campaign trail in 2015-16, Obama scoffed and said “you can’t just wave some magic wand” to make such jobs reappear.

Hey Barack, Yes We Can.

Tired of all this Winning yet?  Part II – Meanwhile, the increasingly sweating Democrats are so utterly bereft of any real idea on how to deal with all of this wonderful news for America (which is always horrible news for Democrats) that they sent the stammering, doddering San Fran Nan out in front of the TV cameras to say…wait for it….oh, this is a good one….“May’s jobs report shows that strong employment numbers mean little to the families hit with soaring new costs under the Republicans’ watch.”

No kidding, she really said that.  I swear I don’t make this stuff up.

So, the Democrat Party’s official response to all this fantastic jobs creation and economic growth is that it’s all bad because Republicans created it and Republicans are bad so it’s all bad.  Or something.  Did you follow that?  Yeah, nobody else did either.

Democrats.  If they didn’t exist, no one in their right mind would ever dream of making them up.

 

I hate to say I told you so, but hey, I told you so. – After receiving a gigantic letter (see below) from the Crazy Little Fat Guy in North Korea on Friday, President Trump announced to the leering fake news media that the summit meeting between the two men scheduled for June 12 in Singapore is going to happen after all.  This ‘news’ came as a shock to all the fake reporters and editors in our fake news media, because none of them have taken the time to try to understand how the President conducts strategic negotiations.

Those of you who read the daily Campaign Updates knew all of this a week ago.  No need to thank me.   This isn’t exactly rocket science here.

This wonderful news for America is also horrible news for Democrats (do you sense a recurring theme here?).  If the President is able to successfully negotiate a framework for the verifiable and permanent de-nuclearization of the Korean Peninsula with the Crazy Little Fat Guy, the Democrats may never recover.  Even an agreement in principle to begin a process would put a huge nail in the coffin of the already-pretty-much-dead “Blue Wave” that the Democrat agents in the fake news media were raving about as recently as March.

Because, repeat with me, Great News For America is Always Horrible News For Democrats.  There are no exceptions to this immutable rule.

Just another day in Donald Trump is killing the Democrat Party America.

That is all.

As Trump Negotiates, Democrats Self-Immolate

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

You thought Wendy Davis was a disaster for Democrats in 2014?  Lupe Valdez says “hold my beer.” – Texas Democrat gubernatorial nominee Lupe Valdez is making the closing of property tax “loopholes” one of her campaign’s major areas of focus.  Yesterday, the Dallas Morning News reported that Ms. Valdez – a former Dallas County Sheriff – owes more than $12,000 in delinquent property taxes.  Democrats:  If they didn’t exist, nobody in their right mind would want to make them up.

But..but…but…who are we gonna get to play the president in our next disaster movie? – Actor Morgan Freeman got his #MeToo moment yesterday, as no fewer than 8 women came forward to accuse him of all sorts of detestable harassment behavior.  This creates a severe casting problem for Hollywood’s producers, since it seems as if Mr. Freeman has appeared in about 50% of all movies filmed since about 1996.

Meanwhile, the scumbag di tutti scumbags, big Hollywood muckety-muck and good friend of Hillary and Oprah Harvey Weinstein, will apparently surrender himself to New York City police today on felony sexual assault charges.  We can expect a whole lot more surrendering himself on sexual assault charges to be in Mr. Weinstein’s future, as active investigations into his behavior are ongoing in at least three U.S. states and two other countries.  He was a very busy man.

In case you missed it, the Twitter meme wizards have provided this campaign tool to every Republican candidate running for office in this year’s mid-term elections:

San Fran Nan – the gift who just keeps on giving – to Republicans.

Democrats really should learn how to read, Part 9,587. – On Thursday morning, President Donald Trump issued a letter to the Crazy Little Fat Guy in North Korea seemingly cancelling the scheduled June 12 summit meeting between the two men in Singapore.  Citing the intemperate tone of recent official comments coming out of North Korea over the past week, Mr. Trump also expressed his willingness to resume negotiations over the de-nuclearization of the Korean Peninsula whenever the Norks calmed their crazy selves down.

Democrats all over the country – none of whom have bothered to read “The Art of the Deal” or make any other real effort to understand the way the President operates in high-stakes negotiations – spent most of the day literally celebrating what they believed was a big “win” for Kim Jong Un (because liberals will always side with the world’s despots over the United States whenever a Republican happens to be in the White House).  Had any of these people ever taken the time to try to understand Mr. Trump, they’d have known that the letter, and the brief speech he made later in the day on the subject, are classic examples of negotiating tactics that he has used many times in the past.

At about 4:20 CT yesterday afternoon, I decided to try to be helpful to all the Democrats out there on my Twitter account:

Less than an hour after that tweet was posted, the Norks responded with an official statement calling the President’s cancellation of the Singapore meeting “extremely regrettable,” and offering to meet with Mr. Trump “any time and in any form.”  The Kim government also issued a video that purports to depict the destruction of the country’s main nuclear weapons testing site.

In “The Art of the Deal”, one of the negotiating tactics Trump emphasizes is that you have to be willing to just get up and walk away from a bad deal.  This was the major failure of Barack Obama and John Kerry in their laughable negotiations over the deal with Iran – they were so desperate to get a deal, any old deal at all that would in their minds enhance Obama’s pathetic “legacy”, that they were never willing to just walk away.  So they ended up with one of the most horrific “deals” in world history, a “deal” that ended up requiring them to load $400 million in cash on a plane and fly it over to Tehran to give to the Mullahs.

Donald Trump isn’t going to do that.  He’s not going to sacrifice America’s national security and national treasure for reasons of personal vanity as Obama did.

We have to remember here that Trump is engaged in a highly complex negotiation involving not just two countries, but four:  the United States, North Korea, South Korea and China, which is North Korea’s main benefactor, and thus exerts tremendous influence on Kim’s behavior.  Despite what it says, Trump’s letter was not about recent intemperate statements coming from Kim and his official spokesmen.  The President is obviously dissatisfied with some aspect of what is being offered by either North Korea or China, and is not willing to put his name on an agreement until that matter is resolved favorably to the U.S.

We also need to realize that the President’s dissatisfaction may not even be about some issue directly related to North Korea – he could be trying to gain concessions out of China’s President Xi in ongoing tariff negotiations or some other China-related matter.  We don’t know right now, and the truth is that we may never know.

What we do know is that yesterday’s upheaval has not ended U.S./North Korea negotiations.  We also know Democrats very predictably jumped the gun because they still, 17 months after the 2016 election, have no understanding of how the current President of the United States operates, or for that matter, why he was elected to begin with.

Yesterday was just part of the art of the deal.  The deal may – or may not – ended up being delayed, but the rapid response by the Crazy Little Fat Guy proves that it isn’t dead, as every Democrat in America had obviously hoped.

[ADDENDUM]

About 30 minutes after I posted this piece, President Trump issued the following tweet:

I rest my case.

Just another day in the Art of the Deal America.

That is all.
