Democrat Depravity is a True Mental Illness

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

The depravity of the Democrats has now reached serious mental illness levels. – It is no longer enough for Democrat politicians to express their disdain for American values, no longer enough for them to propose programs or make outrageous accusations designed specifically to divide and Balkanize our nation along racial, sexual, religious and gender lines. The competition for that space has become so feverish that they now feel compelled to ramp things up to another level in order to attract attention onto themselves from an equally-despicable media establishment.

Thus, we see things like yesterday’s desperate effort by Irish Bob O’Rourke to reinvigorate his failed presidential campaign by proposing a “war tax” that would literally pit family against family in our tax system. And we see Lieawatha out on the hustings doing her best Oprah imitation, screaming “you get reparations! And you get reparations! And you get reparations!” to the point where you can no longer even add up the trillions of dollars we do not have that she is proposing to give away.

For The Commie, it’s not enough to just hold a presser at which he proposes to destroy the U.S. banking system by “forgiving” trillions in outstanding student loans, he must do so while standing next to The Enemy Within, Ilhan Omar, the Poster Child for Antisemitism in America who stands newly accused by the Minneapolis Star Tribune of having married her brother in order to defraud the U.S. immigration system. The Star Tribune is the same newspaper that refused to report on that matter until she had been safely elected to congress, of course.

If you’re Alexandria Ocasio Cortez, criticizing the current administration’s detention centers along the southern border is not enough – you must seek media attention by comparing them to the Nazi “concentration camps” in which 6 millions Jews were murdered prior to and during World War II. And when you comments are called out by various Jewish organizations, including the American Holocaust Museum, you can’t simply apologize for having resorted to outrageous hyperbole; instead, you say you weren’t talking about Nazi concentration camps, you were talking about those other concentration camps run by …um, well…er, you know, like, those other countries or something. Like, you know?

If you’re Nervous Nancy Pelosi, simply objecting to President Trump’s plan to ramp up deportations of those who have broken U.S. immigration laws isn’t enough. No, no, you must allege that, by proposing to increase deportation efforts to, oh, say, Obama-era levels, the Evil Orange Man is scaring children. And not just children of immigrants, oh, no, because limiting it to them is probably accurate and thus not outrageous enough to attract air time from Chris Cuomo. No, the Evil Orange Man is scaring ALL children everywhere, because that’s just how powerful he has become.

Then there’s Mad Maxine Waters, the worst person in America, having recently seized that crown back from Adam Pencil Neck Schiff. For the despicable dimwit from California, it isn’t enough to question the effectiveness of the Evil Orange Man’s response to Iran’s downing of an unmanned drone that was flying in international air space, oh, no. If you’re Mad Maxine looking to get your heinously ugly mug on television for a few seconds, you just grab the latest talking points of the Iranian Mullahs and parrot them for the cameras. That’ll damn sure get you on the CBS Evening News and probably on Rachel Maddow, too.

This is the ugly face of the Democrat Party today. It is demented, it is depraved and it is utterly despicable. These are sick, sick people who are destroying our society, bit by bit. They must be stopped.

That is all.

The Week in Review: Yet Another Lost Week for the Democrats

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

Oh, so they have to lie, then? – The week started with former Colorado Governor and current hopeless presidential candidate John Hickenlooper becoming so distraught about his party’s race to the farthest extent of the far, far, far, far left that he felt the need to tell an interviewer that “I feel strongly that Democrats have to draw a clear line and say, ‘We are not socialists.'” Not a good look, Dems.

Sunday also saw yet another smear strategy against President Donald Trump die an ugly death. Trump had thrown the entire Democrat/Media propaganda complex into a four-day fit of apoplexy on June 13 when he told the little Clinton toady George Stephanolpoulous that he “would probably listen” if someone from another country called and said he had damaging information about a political opponent. Sensing an opportunity to damage the President, the Democrats and their media stooges spent the next 96 hours trying to convince Americans that that statement was somehow proof that he had personally worked with Putin to fix the 2016 election.

What it all really did was remind everyone that a) Robert Mueller had mounted a 2-year Witch Hunt trying to find evidence that such a thing had happened and failed to come up with anything and b) that the Clinton Campaign had laundered $11 million through the DNC, a law firm and a PR firm to pay foreign agents, mostly from Russia, to try to dig up dirt on her opponent. Apparently the Democrats got some really bad polling information on this smear Sunday afternoon, because the that particular narrative completely disappeared from the nation’s airwaves after about 4:00 p.m. that day, which must have been when the memo went out to everyone. Because that is what they do.

Image may contain: 1 person, sitting and text

Monday dawned with great news from Mexico, news that reminded everyone of another utterly failed Democrat/media narrative, which held that the President’s threat to impose tariffs on the failed state to the south would produce no results. We found out Monday that it was producing all sorts of great results in slowing the flow of illegals up from Central America, so the media immediately changed the subject. Because that, again, is what they do.

As the Democrat Clown Car of Mediocrities rolled out their presidential campaign messages to “crowds” of literally dozens of supporters – Eric Swalwell drew exactly 18 for a gun control rally on Monday –  Tuesday gave us clip after clip of thousands of Trump supporters spending as much as 40 hours in line and actually holding tailgate parties awaiting the President’s formal campaign kickoff announcement in Orlando, Florida.

Of course, none of the broadcast networks carried the event, something they had always done for previous incumbents announcing their re-election campaigns, and the petulant creeps at CNN cut away after the President led the crowd in a chant of “CNN sucks!” Because that, yet again, is what they do.

Tuesday also gave us a social media clip of a half-drunk de facto Speaker of the House Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez telling her brain dead fans that the border detention centers being used to temporarily house illegal aliens while their bogus asylum claims are being processed are exactly the same thing as Hitler slaughtering 6 million Jews in concentration camps. As if to amplify their Party’s ongoing lurch to disgusting antisemitism, not a single Democrat leader could summon the intellectual honesty to disavow AOC’s despicable remarks.

By Wednesday, Creepy Uncle Joe Biden, the nation’s Unfrozen Caveman Senator, was being blasted by his fellow presidential candidates for bragging about how he used to get stuff done in the senate by paling around with all those old segregationists of the 1970s. The media let that narrative go on for two solid days before they suddenly realized that all it was doing was reminding everyone that all those segregationists were in fact members of the Democrat Party. Ooopsie.

Also on Wednesday, we found out that the Broadway play about Slick Willie and the Fainting Felon, “Hillary and Clinton”, was shutting down its run early due to … wait for it … low ticket sales. Interestingly, this is the same reason why Slick and the Pantsuit Princess shut down their nationwide tour of evening events months ahead of time. There’s a message in all of this somewhere… wonder what is might be?

Thursday brought us film of Democrat hero Angela Merkel shaking uncontrollably, like Beto O’Rourke giving a campaign speech, as she stood for the German national anthem at a public event. If Merkel were a member of America’s Democrat Party, she’d be a part of its youth movement.

The Democrats’ whole “fossil fuels cause global warming” narrative took a big hit the same day when Canada’s child leader Justin Trudeau declared a “climate emergency” in one breath, and then approved a major oil pipeline in his next. I swear I don’t make this stuff up – who could?

The week got even worse for the anti-American party known as the Democrats when, after it was revealed that Iran had shot down an unmanned U.S. drone flying in international air space, each and every member of the Democrat Party knee-jerked to parroting the Iranian Mullahs’ talking points. Here is California Democrat Jackie Speier, for example:

By Friday, it became obvious that while everyone, Democrats and Republicans alike, was knee-jerking to their favorite talking points, President Trump was the lone adult in the room, speaking in measured tones about the situation and carefully considering all of his options instead of taking action that would end up with innocent people dying.

On that same day we found out that the hacks at USA Today were sitting on polling results showing the President with a 49% public approval rating, the highest he has ever attained in that particular poll. Because that, one more time, is what those people do.

Oh, yeah, it was also Friday when we discovered that Creepy Uncle Joe’s creepy son, Hunter Biden, had fathered a child with a 25 year-old Arkansas woman while he was engaged in an affair with his late brother’s widow, and had refused to take responsibility for the child. My goodness.

The Democrats in the House continued their party’s ongoing War on Women – and on little girls – when they unanimously passed a bill that would force school girls to compete with trans-genders born as males in sporting events. Think about that for a second: The vote was unanimous. Not a single Democrat representative sees anything unfair in this. Unreal.

To close out Friday, candidate Swalwell promised that, as his first act upon taking office, he would summarily fire President Trump’s son-in-law, Jared Kushner. This is just one of many problematic promises the unintentionally-hilarious Swalwell keeps making, given that 1) Kushner is not actually on the government payroll, and 2) by the time a “President Swalwell” took office – an event that will thankfully never happen – Kushner would have already been long-gone away from Washington in any event.

The Democrat/media propaganda complex closed out its lost week by pounding the obviously false story shamefully published in New York Magazine, that, while married to Marla Maples, one of the most beautiful women on the face of the earth 25 years ago, Donald Trump was out raping homely, 52 year-old matrons.

The claim is being made by a pathetic wretch who is hawking a book, and is so blatantly false that even some mainstream media outlets have refused to join in the narrative, a fact that caused Democrat water-boy Chris Hayes to whine on Twitter:

You just really cannot make this stuff up, folks.

And thus, another completely lost week for the Democrats goes into the books.  Couldn’t happen to a more deserving bunch of people.

That is all.

Tin Ear Democrats Just Keep Embarrassing Themselves

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

Oh, my, what an embarrassment Saturday was for our Democrat friends. – Ok, they’re not really our “friends” – they’re actually enemies of the people who want to put anyone who disagrees with them on any issue from killing babies to throwing away the nation’s treasure on eliminating cow farts and building rail lines that can never be built in prison. Thus, watching them humiliate themselves in public has become a major new national pastime, a source of great joy to millions of normal Americans.

Saturday was just filled with banner episodes of this ongoing inadvertent comedy series, like this one from inexplicable presidential candidate Kirsten Gillibrand:

Seriously, any advisor who told her that was a good look that needed to be spread on social media should be summarily fired for cause. It doesn’t matter in the grand scheme of things, since Gillibrand continues to poll at or near 0 in every poll and has no shot at winning anything, but dang, girl, go buy some dignity. I hear WalMart has it on sale this weekend.

But poor Kirsten certainly had plenty of company on Saturday. Here’s the Pantsuit Princess once again blaming Russia for her humiliating 2016 loss in the presidential race. If you can stand it, watch as she engages in classic Clintonian projection by saying that “obstruction of justice did occur.”:

Why yes, “obstruction of justice did indeed occur:

  • 33,000 deleted emails that were under federal subpoena
  • subpoenaed hard drives bleach-bitted
  • subpoenaed cell phones smashed with hammers
  • outright perjury committed in FBI interviews
  • subpoenaed documents falsified and withhel…

Wait, she was talking about someone else? My goodness. Of course she was.

Or how about that always-reliable-for-a-good-laugh San Fran Nan? In the wake of President Trump’s smashing victory in obtaining major concessions from Mexico in his ongoing one-man battle to stem the flow of illegal immigrants, terrorists and drugs across our Southern border, the doddering, stammering Speaker of the House had this to say:

“President Trump undermined America’s preeminent leadership role in the world by recklessly threatening to impose tariffs on our close friend and neighbor to the south. Threats and temper tantrums are no way to negotiate foreign policy.”

Um, well, sorry Nervous Nancy, the evidence currently at hand says that threats and temper tantrums work just fine with our “neighbor to the south.” Do try to keep up, would you?

Then there was Pete Buttigieg saying this to an audience in Iowa:

 “At a time like today when you can still be legally fired in so many parts of this country because of who you are or who you love, we have work to do.”

For the record, there is no place in America where anyone – gay, straight, black, brown, yellow, white, Jewish, Catholic, Protestant, Native American or anyone else – can LEGALLY be fired because of who you are or who you love. Hard stop, as AOC loves to say.

That is a damnable lie, and if we had anything resembling an honest news media in our country, he would be forced to provide specific examples of where he believes numerous federal laws banning any such practice do not apply in the United States of America.

But we don’t have an honest news media in our country today, so nonsense like this just gets tossed out into the public consciousness with no effort to correct the record.

Buttigieg uses that line as a prop for his next line, which is “America was never that great.” Note to Mayor Pete: If you have to make stuff up in order to claim America was never great, America must be pretty damn great.

That is all.

About that Nervous Nancy…

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

A killshot for the ages. – Don’t look now, but President Donald Trump has leveled what is going to be a very, very effective killshot at Nancy Pelosi. He tagged her with it during yesterday’s interview with Fox’s Laura Ingraham, and followed it up this morning with this pair of tweets:

“Nervous Nancy.” How perfect is that? Think about it: What political figure are you familiar with who appears to be more constantly, overtly nervous than San Fran Nan?

Here’s a great example from the 2018 State of the Union address – watch her working her mouth so nervously that it looks like she has a gerbil running around in there:

Or how about this video of her stammering and fidgeting through a typical press availability?:

This could go on and on, because these are very typical public performances by the doddering Speaker.

So, the first requirement of an effective killshot – that it is accurate and cannot be proven to be untrue – is firmly in place.

The next requirement – equally important here – is that the killshot be something about which the target will become self-conscious. Pelosi is already so self-conscious about her fidgety, stammering, speech-slurring public appearance that she and her media allies just spent an entire week attempting to get Facebook to ban one video of her on the utterly false claim that it was “doctored.”

Trump’s tagging her with the “Nervous Nancy” nickname will inevitably result in Pelosi becoming extremely self-conscious about controlling her myriad nervous tics, most likely to such a point that they will only become even more self-evident. The new nickname will just as inevitably cause Pelosi’s target audiences – the fake news media and the public – to pay close attention to her tics and comment on them.

Back in mid-March, the President issued a killshot on Irish Bob O’Rourke, as follows:

“Well, I think he’s got a lot of hand movement. I’ve never seen so much hand movement. I said, ‘Is he crazy or is that just the way he acts?’” Trump said at the White House. “I watched him a little while this morning, during I assume it was some kind of a news conference, and I’ve actually never seen anything quite like it.”

That one was so immediately effective that Irish Bob was filmed the very next day answering a reporter’s questions with his normally-waving arms seemingly glued to his sides. O’Rourke has basically never recovered, as his poll numbers have fallen from around 10% support to about 3% in the wake of the killshot. The President didn’t tag him with a nickname, but his remarks about Irish Bob caused the public to take notice of just how weird and un-serious he truly is.

During the 2016 GOP nominating process, we saw the very same process take place with “Little Marco” Rubio, Jeb! “Low Energy” Bush, “Annoying” John Kasich, and others. The “Lyin’ Ted” Cruz moniker was not nearly so effective given Cruz is most often demonstrably not lying, but by the time Trump tagged him with that nickname he was so far ahead in the race that he didn’t need a killshot related to Cruz in any event.

“Nervous Nancy” has all the hallmarks of being an immediately effective, potentially devastating killshot, mainly because Nancy is indeed extremely nervous pretty much all the time, and has no real means of demonstrating otherwise. I’m betting it will be so effective in quickly diminishing Pelosi’s public credibility that even members of her own caucus in the House will be remarking on the Speaker’s nervousness within a few weeks.

Won’t that be fun?

That is all.

Pelosi’s Choice

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

As of today, in the wake of Robert Mueller’s exit from the sedition stage, the Democrat Party is left with two choices: They can either do what the hotheads in their demented voter base and congressional caucus want, and move down the fool’s gold-paved road to impeachment, or they can have a shot at maintaining their majority in the House of Representatives in the 2020 elections.

They can’t have both.

See, San Fran Nan is not quite as dumb as she looks (and granted, she looks awfully dumb most of the time). The doddering, stammering old hack has political power now, and she understands that, in today’s Washington, DC, that is the difference between raking in the big bucks and being on the outside watching the money train leave the station. She doesn’t want to go back to being a spectator after just two years.

The problem she has is that her base of power is a very shaky one. She has a fairly sizable majority of 235D-197R (three seats are currently vacant), but well over 30 of those D seats are held by Democrats who managed to win in marginal Republican districts in 2018. To make matters even more shaky, most of those Democrats are freshmen who have little real influence with and loyalty from their constituents.

It has been reported that the only real reason why Pelosi has not turned to Jabba the Nadler and told him to go ahead with impeachment hearings is not because she knows such an effort would never be able to succeed in the GOP-majority senate, but because House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer and the rest of her leadership team keep telling her she does not even have the votes to win in her own House caucus. See, almost all of those freshmen representing GOP districts want to get re-elected in 2020, and they know that as soon as they call for the impeachment of a sitting President for no real reason other than Trump Derangement Syndrome, they can just fold up their tent and go back to living a real life in the real world, and who wants to do that?

So, what is a shaky old hack to do? How do you keep the restless natives from revolting while still holding onto some chance at maintaining your power base in an election that lies 17 long months away?

Well, you do what she’s been doing, which is to keep throwing out the occasional impeachment red meat that you know will make the headlines at the Drudge Report to your members while stopping just short of actually heading down that doomed-to-fail road. San Fran Nan has resorted to that tactic at pretty much every public speaking event she’s held in the past couple of months, and she did it again yesterday at some event or another – who the hell knows what it was? CNN – whose report was linked by the Drudge Report –  naturally doesn’t say.

Regardless of CNN’s standard lousy reporting, Pelosi first noted that only about 15% of her caucus are “outspoken on impeachment” right now, but then tossed out the red meat by continuing with “nothing is off the table.” But CNN’s fake reporter Jim Acosta quoted an un-named Democrat (because of course he or she wasn’t named) as saying that Pelosi’s natives “are growing more restless.”  Man, is that some perfect CNN fake reporting, or what?

Pelosi then made the funniest statement of all, when she promised that “The Congress will continue to investigate and legislate to protect our elections and secure our democracy.” First of all, the national Democrat Party at this point could not care less about doing anything to “secure our democracy.” Literally every action that party has taken for many years now has been designed to undermine our democratic Republic and our personal liberties, and that is not going to change.

And the congress will certainly continue to investigate, because that is the House Democrats’ sole agenda. But legislate? Please. Stop it. Your own voters don’t even believe that anymore.

So there’s Pelosi’s Choice. (Wasn’t that a movie once?) At this point, you almost have to wonder what it is that drives her to keep going. She’s 79 years old, an age when most ordinary Americans strive to be blissfully retired and taking it easy.

But San Fran Nan is like so many members of congress in both parties: They just seem to want to keep going and going, lording their power over the rest of us until life leaves them no choice.

Why, it’s as if power itself is a narcotic (it is) and no one in Washington appears more regularly loony from that narcotic’s effects than Nancy Pelosi.

That is all.

The Week in Review: Panic in the Deep State as Barr Steams Ahead

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

No more Twitter Week in Review, I’m afraid. For whatever reason, WordPress doesn’t seem to be able to handle that many photos in a single post anymore. Weird. So until I figure that bit of technical nonsense out, we’ll have to review the week the old-fashioned way, with mostly words. Man, it’s like we’re back in the 20th century here.

So, here is your Week in Review, retro-style:

The week began with fake Republican Justin Amash from Michigan, joining his fellow Michigander Rashida Tlaib in calling for President Trump’s impeachment. Like Tlaib, Amash has no clue what the exact grounds for impeachment would be, but he did know his business interests in China were suffering from the President’s trade policies, and by golly, that was enough for him. In response to Amash’s craven act, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy encouraged Amash to just go ahead and switch parties. Good advice.

While 25 despicable candidates for the Democrat nomination were out around the country giving students false hopes that their massive college loans would be forgiven if only they voted for them – that isn’t gonna happen unless we want to crash the national banking system – Austin billionaire investor Robert F. Smith took matters into his own hands. In the midst of his commencement address at Morehouse College, Smith informed the graduating class that he would personally be paying off their loans, an incredibly generous gesture that will cost him an estimated $57 million.

I would say hey, maybe Smith should run for the Democrat nomination, but 1) I don’t know the man’s politics, and 2) no one that intelligent could possibly attract the votes of the deranged Democrat voter base.

By Monday, it had become apparent that Irish Bob O’Rourke’s “re-boot” of his moribund campaign had already run aground, and polls issued throughout the week showed his numbers had dropped from a fairly consistent 5-6% support a few weeks ago down to a consistent 2-3% now. Apparently, even his wife and dog are now planning to vote for Mayor Pete instead.  Oof.

Hey, remember Eric Swalwell, and how he was also running for the Democrat nomination? Given that he consistently hits 0% in the polls, not many people do. But he is running, though no one is really sure why. On Monday the Washington Free Beacon did the Washington Post’s job, reporting that the 38 year-old California nitwit has failed to pay down his own student loans, which total up to as much as $100,000. Hey, maybe that’s why he’s running – so he can forgive himself. It makes more sense than anything else.

Speaking of Democrats mysteriously in the race, ex-Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper told an interviewer this week that “Withdrawing the U.S. from global engagement makes us less safe.” The only trouble is, no one is doing that. So he wins this week’s non sequitur award.

It was the week that the deep state rats really started scurrying for cover, with Usual Suspects like James Comey, John Brennan, James Clapper and Loretta Lynch very publicly arguing with and pointing fingers at each other in a desperate attempt to avoid becoming the subjects of grand jury subpoenas and indictments. Cartoonist A.F. Branco captured it all perfectly here:

When President Trump re-tweeted that hilariously perfect cartoon, both Brennan and Comey got a very public case of the vapors, which they of course took to their Twitter feeds. Doesn’t everybody?

By Tuesday, the cacophony coming from House Democrats demanding impeachment had reached high enough decibel levels that even doddering old Nancy Pelosi could hear it, so she called a special ‘impeachment meeting’ with all of them on Wednesday morning. Emerging from that meeting, she accused President Trump of executing a “cover-up”, and then immediately traveled to the White House for a long-scheduled meeting with the President and Chuck Schumer on infrastructure. Trump then abruptly cancelled that meeting due to Pelosi’s having just accused him of felonious behavior, starting a public pissing contest between the two that lasted the rest of the week.

Our fake news media blamed Trump for everything, because of course they did.

Another week passed without Robert Mueller or anyone else appearing to testify before Jaba The Nadler’s House Kangaroo Court Committee, formerly known as the Judiciary Committee. Upon learning of Mueller’s latest refusal to show, CNN reporter Manu Raj took to Twitter – because of course he did – to inform his half-dozen loyal readers that “Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s team has expressed reticence to him testifying publicly in front of the House Judiciary Committee, according to sources familiar with the matter. His team has expressed that he does not want to appear political.”

Everyone in Washington and out here in Flyover Country was left to wonder exactly who Robert Mueller’s “team” consists of, given that Mueller is now nothing more than an employee at the Department of Justice. Everyone was also left to wonder when exactly it was that Mueller – who conducted a 20-month Witch Hunt and then, failing to find a crime of any kind, issued a 424 page report specifically designed to damage a sitting POTUS politically – suddenly became concerned about appearing to be political. No answers were forthcoming, although whenever they do come, we can be sure they will be posted on Twitter.

Rock singer David Lee Roth is getting his own Las Vegas residency, because the nation simply cannot get enough of a 70 year-old guy singing “Hot for Teacher.”

Researchers at the University of Iceland violated the ClimateScam narrative this week by noting that that glaciers in both Iceland and Greenland had expanded dramatically over the last 12 months and would continue to expand in coming years. They will no doubt soon be looking for other employment, because the narrative must be honored in today’s academic world.

The Washington Examiner did the Washington Post’s job and discovered this week that Mayor Pete’s dad was a dedicated Marxist who regularly read the Communist Manifesto to his son over the dinner table. Just your normal, every day Democrat politician’s family, right? Right.

Washington state Governor Jay Inslee – who is also running for the 2020 Democrat nomination, because of course he is – signed a bill making it legal to compost human bodies in that state. Have you figured out yet that the Democrat Party is a death cult? Because I have.

In the best talking head clip of the week, Louisiana Senator John Kennedy goes off on John Brennan and Iran:

It isn’t getting anything else productive done, but the U.S. Senate this week managed to confirm the 41st circuit court nominee by President Trump, far and away a record for any president at this point in his first term.

The Creepy Porn Lawyer received even more indictments this week, this time for bilking his porn star client out of $300,000. He now faces up to 410 years in the federal pen. See? There is still justice in America.

Mayor Pete got his Fox News townhall Monday evening, complete with an audience stacked with his supporters and softball questions from a fawning Chris Wallace. Fox’s ratings soared.

Irish Bob O’Rourke got himself a townhall Tuesday night on CNN, causing CNN’s ratings to tank another 30%. O’Rourke then said he sure would like to get him one of those Fox News deals with Chris Wallace, prompting President Trump to issue a tweet asking what in the hell is going on at Fox News?  Good question.

The big bomb of the week dropped on Thursday, as President Trump sent a memo over to William Barr authorizing the AG to begin the process of declassifying documents related to the Obama Administration’s efforts to spy on the Trump campaign, fix the 2016 elections for the Pantsuit Princess, execute a coup on a sitting U.S. president and basically destroy our republic. When asked by one dim bulb reporter what exactly he would be declassifying, the President responded “Everything. We’re declassifying everything.”

Deep State panic ensued.

Bug-eyed Adam Schiff was so panicked that he called the President’s effort towards full transparency in government a “cover-up” and “un-American.” I’m old enough to remember when cover-ups consisted of efforts to hide crucial information from the public. Times change, I suppose.

British Prime Minister Theresa May resigned a few hours after the President sent that memo to William Barr. Even though her intelligence agencies were intimately involved in the effort to construct the fake Steele Dossier and frame members of the Trump campaign throughout 2016, and that May has literally begged Trump not to declassify certain documents, we are to believe the confluence of these events is strictly coincidental. Because, narrative or something.

On Friday, Jabba The Nadler seemed to almost pass out at a press conference with New York Mayor Bill DeBlasio – another guy who is mysteriously running for the Democrat nomination. Trying to destroy a nation of 330 million people is stressful work.

Also on Friday, old Clinton hack Naomi Wolf was humiliated on live radio in London when the host informed her that the entire basis for the book she is promoting is based on her lack of understanding of a British legal term. Her publisher announced on Saturday that it was pulling the book for “re-editing.” Ms. Wolf is one of the rarest of rare Democrats in that she is not running for the party’s nomination in 2020.

Finally, the week ended with MSNBC nitwit host Nicolle Wallace asking Irish Bob O’Rourke the question that is on every fake journalist’s mind: ““Play media critic: What can we do better” to cover his campaign. An obviously flustered O’Rourke had no answer, saying that “it is what it is.”

Why yes, it certainly is.

That is all.

Trump Orders Barr to Light the Fuse on the Declassification Bomb

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

When real news intrudes on DC Kabuki Theater. – While most of the fake news media is focused on the back-and-forth childish insults between President Trump and San Fran Nan, actual important stuff just keeps happening. British Prime Minister Theresa May resigned overnight after making an utter disaster of Brexit planning. That’s kind of a big deal.

Wikileaks founder Julian Assange, who styles himself as a journalist, was hit with 18 charges under the Espionage Act. Gosh, that probably raised the stress level of all the reporters in our fake national news media outlets who’ve spent the last three years trading sports tickets, expensive dinners and sex for classified material, don’t you think? After all, it is one thing for a journalist to “receive” national secrets like several did from Daniel Ellsberg in the famous Pentagon Papers incident, but it is quite another thing to obtain them via bribery or, as in the case of Assange, via hacking illegally into computers. Something to keep in the back of our minds as Attorney General William Barr moves forward with his investigation. More on this later, in fact.

And speaking of our real, actual, functioning Attorney General, the biggest overnight news – news that the New York Times will likely relegate to page 19 of section C – came in the form of a letter to Mr. Barr from President Trump authorizing him to start the process of declassifying documents related to surveillance of the Trump campaign by high officials in the Obama Administration during 2016.

Boom.

“Today, at the request and recommendation of the Attorney General of the United States, President Donald J. Trump directed the intelligence community to quickly and fully cooperate with the Attorney General’s investigation into surveillance activities during the 2016 Presidential election,” White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said in a statement.

The full text of the memorandum can be found here.

This memo is very interesting for several reasons:

  • It confers Barr the full authority to conduct the declassification without involvement from Mr. Trump himself. This makes sense since Trump was the ultimate target of the illegal spying, and thus would have an inherent conflict of interest. It is very telling that the President was unwilling to confer such authority on former AG Jeff Sessions, but is now willing to give it to Barr.
  • Giving Barr full authority to manage the process also makes sense given that it is being done in conjunction with the conduct of Barr’s own investigation, which is being led by Connecticut U.S. Attorney John Durham. It allows Barr and Durham the discretion to hold back any documents whose public revelation might harm their own inquiry.
  • Note all the other high officials addressed in the memorandum. Note the presence of the Secretary of …. Energy??? Hey, what is the main function of the Department of Energy? Why, it is providing security for the nation’s nuclear facilities, both in the Defense Department – whose Secretary is also addressed atop the memo – and in the nation’s power generation sector. Hey, remember that time when the Obama Administration – led by then-Sec. State Pantsuit Princess – sold 20% of our nation’s uranium reserves to the Russians, right after the Russians had poured more than $150 million into the Clinton Crime Family’s Fake Foundation? Yeah…guessing the Coughing Crook soiled her newest fashionable table cloth smock when she saw this little item.
  • Oh, yeah, look at who else is on that list – the Secretary of Treasury. Hey, remember that time when President Barack Hussein Obama his own self authorized the loading of $400 million in foreign currency onto a jumbo jet and had it flown over to Tehran to give to the Iranian Mullahs? Yeah, so do I.
  • Oh, and look at the paragraph headed “Section 1. Agency Cooperation.” Look at how it says “The Attorney General is currently conducting a review of intelligence activities relating to the campaigns in the 2016 Presidential election and certain related matters.” What might those “related matters” be? Sure is going to be interesting finding out.
  • [One more interesting note that comes from a friend] It is also “Interesting that it dropped on the Thursday night before Memorial Day weekend, when most of these swamp rats have already checked out for the long weekend, but while most Americans are still paying attention for another 12-18 hours.”  Solid point.

The timing of this memo is interesting for a number of reasons, one of which is the pending release of the report on abuse of the FISA process coming from DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz. As I told host Greg Budell in a Tuesday interview on Montgomery, Alabama’s 93.1 FM, some parts of that report most likely won’t make much sense to the public at large unless certain documents are declassified either along with the IG’s report or shortly after its release.

My bet is that the timing of this memo means that we will be seeing that IG report very soon now, probably during the first half of June.

One final point, cycling back to the discussion above about Assange and “journalists” who illegally obtain classified documents: Keep in mind that news item we saw several weeks back indicating that Horowitz has been looking into incidents in which FBI and other DOJ officials had received illegal compensation in exchange for such information.

We have waited a long, long time for this declassification and the final Horowitz report. After several false starts and disappointments, it is well past time for both to be real.

That is all.

WATCH: Trump Cuts Meeting Short, Blasts Pelosi and Schumer

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

President Trump cut this morning’s meeting with Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi short after Pelosi had earlier accused the President of committing a “cover-up.” Following the meeting, the President called the fake press corps together for an impromptu press conference, and it is a thing of beauty.

Just watch it. It’s too long for me to compile a transcript, and there’s no need for any commentary from me. The first 18 minutes or so are the President, the last 12 or so are Pelosi and Schumer lying.

 

That is all.

The Tantrum-Tossing Brats in the Democrat Playpen Demand Their Impeachment!

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

“I’m not for impeachment. Impeachment is so divisive to the country that unless there’s something so compelling and overwhelming and bipartisan, I don’t think we should go down that path, because it divides the country. And he’s just not worth it.” – Speaker Nancy Pelosi, in an April interview with the Washington Post.

Oh, why the hell not? – Democrats in the House of Representatives were always bound to try to impeach President Donald Trump sooner or later. They spent 18 months living in a fantasy world in which they’d be going down this road backed up by the findings of the “high crimes and misdemeanors” compiled in a final report by Gestapo Chief…er…”Special Counsel” Robert Mueller and his band of evil Clinton/Obama thugs, but that didn’t work out quite the way they’d hoped.

But Democrats are always determined to self-immolate themselves at the altar of the desires of their most incoherently radicalized members, supporters and the shrews on “The View,” so they’re just ready now to go down this road anyway. Thus, despite San Fran Nan’s protestations against the desires of the mob to try to reverse the results of the 2016 presidential election for no valid reason whatsoever, the mob is most likely going to get its way, and soon.

The President’s refusal to allow half a dozen Democrat-controlled congressional committees to have a do-over of the whole Mueller Witch Hunt  will become their rationale for claiming Mr. Trump is “obstructing justice” or something. That, and his refusal to let the likes of Jabba the Nadler and Bug-Eyed Adam Schiff have his last 20 tax returns to use for political exploitation.

Folks, these are not “high crimes.” They aren’t even “misdemeanors.” They are a President of the United States protecting the office of the presidency, which is a very important thing for him to be doing in the face of such congressional corruption and overreach. That is, if we wish to maintain a constitutional Republic form of government, something the Democrats stopped caring about many years ago.

David Cicilline, Chairman of the House something-or-other Committee – they’re all chairmen of something – typifies the Democrat incoherence on the subject. Appearing on Fox News on Tuesday, here is what he had to say:

Cicilline told Fox News there is a “tremendous level of frustration” behind the growing impeachment efforts, adding that he believes Trump is “behaving as though he is above the law and he is not.”

Uh, what law? Cicilline can’t say. Oh. So the plan is to impeach a president because you’re all frustrated? That probably isn’t what our Founders had in mind with this whole “impeachment” thingy.

The Rhode Island Democrat appeared on MSNBC and offered his reaction that the White House is instructing McGahn to refuse to comply with a subpoena to appear on Capitol Hill and the assurance from the Department of Justice that McGahn has “immunity” which does not legally require him to testify before Congress, something Cicilline believed was “legally incorrect.”

Dear Cong. Cicilline: Disagreements over the law should be resolved in the courts, not by throwing tantrums on the floor of the House.

“Let me be clear; if Don McGahn doesn’t testify, it is time to open an impeachment inquiry,” Cicilline said. “The president has engaged in an ongoing effort to impede our ability to find the truth, to collect evidence, to do our work, and this is preventing us really from ultimately finding the facts and doing our work in terms of oversight.

Uh, what oversight work is that, Congressman? Cicilline can’t specify. Oh.

Ok, what about a guy named Mark Pocan, who is Chairman [because of course he is] of the Congressional Progressive Caucus, which means he’s basically a Marxist. Can he be more specific?

Rep. Mark Pocan, a co-chair of the Congressional Progressive Caucus, said Trump’s “stonewalling” of Congress “only enhances the President’s appearance of guilt,” and “has pushed Congress to a point where we must start an impeachment inquiry.”

“Regrettably, the President’s most recent actions and continued disrespect for the Constitution are forcing us down the road to impeachment,”

Uh, what “disrespect” for which part of the Constitution would that be? Can you be specific? No? Oh.

Ok, please go on.

“The President and his associates are engaging in a campaign of obstruction and lawlessness that undermines the rule of law and does not reflect the actions of someone who is ‘exonerated’ as innocent. Congress has a responsibility to conduct oversight and get the information we need to deliver the truth to the American public regarding Russia’s interference in our elections.”

Oh, so we’re back to the whole “we’re mad ‘cuz the Bad Orange Man won’t let us have our do-over!!!” right? Right.

Please, do take that argument to the American people. It will not end well for you.

But that’s all the children have, and they’re angry, and they aren’t going to bed until they’ve had their do-over. Thus, Mommy Nan announced Tuesday afternoon that she will hold a special “impeachment meeting” of her tantrum-tossing caucus at 9:00 ET today. Oh, to be a fly on the wall…

Interestingly – and this is utterly without precedent and thus worth noting – Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez actually sounded like one of the rare adults in the room in talking about all of this. In a brief interview with Politico, the normally-raging nitwit from the Bronx said “I trust that the speaker is taking a measured approach to ensure that we’re moving everyone forward, I know that being a Speaker is hard – holding this party together is a difficult task, but I think that we know what we need to do. I personally believe…that I think we have to move forward.”

Man, who wrote that damn-near-sensible statement for her? I mean, you can tell from her body language that she’s reciting a script, but it isn’t her normal incoherent Marxist gibberish. Guess Cenk Uygur must be on vacation.

Dear Democrats: When AOC is suddenly sounding like the calm kid in your playpen, you are well and truly out of control.

Please, don’t stop on my account. Somebody go pop some popcorn…

That is all.
