New Hampshire Breeds More Chaos For The Democrats

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

Tired of all this WINNING yet? – While the Dow closed down by less than 1 percent, both the NASDAQ and S&P 500 managed record high closes for the second straight day despite indications from Federal Reserve Board Chair Jerome Powell that the Fed will not be lowering interest rates again at its next meeting.

Speaking of WINNING, Democrat looooosers were dropping like flies after poor finishes in last night’s New Hampshire primary. Andrew Yang was the first to end his campaign, in which he attempted to bribe his way to the nomination with the false promise of paying a “living wage” to every adult of $1,000. Just a few minutes behind Yang was Colorado Senator Michael Bennet, who most people didn’t know was in the race in any event.

A little bit later in the evening, some corrupt reporter – I never did find out who it was – tweeted a “scoop” that he/she had actually listened as billionaire Tom Steyer told his supporters that he was leaving the race, and many others picked up the “story” and repeated it. It turned out to be false, as Steyer, who has already wasted more than $200 million in the race to get to 1% in Iowa and 3% in New Hampshire, seems intent on wasting another few hundred million before finally giving up his ghost of a campaign. Cool.

The winner, of course, was The Commie, Bernie Sanders. The old Bolshevik  managed to outpace Preacher Pete Buttigieg by about 4,000 votes, similar to his initial vote margin in the Iowa Caucuses, where Preacher Pete ended up being awarded one more delegate by the Party’s “counters.” Despite his edge in the New Hampshire vote, The Commie was awarded the same number of delegates as the Preacher, leaving him still one behind in the Party’s bizarre method of awarding delegates, despite having collected about 10,000 more votes.

Because this is how the Democrat Party operates in the year 2020.

But the real stories of the night came with who finished in third place, and who didn’t manage to crack the top 3.

As I predicted yesterday, Amy Klobuchar had a strong showing, coming in third behind Preacher Pete and dominating the analyst panels on CNN and MSNBC.

Klobuchar probably shouldn’t get too used to grabbing so much of the spotlight, though. In New Hampshire, she benefited from an indecisive voter base in which almost half of Democrat voters didn’t make up their minds until the three days prior to Tuesday. This enabled her to benefit from a strong debate performance on Friday night, as well as the implosions being experienced by the previous favorites in the race.

The campaign moves next to Nevada, a caucus state in which heavy organizing is key. Klobuchar hasn’t had the funding needed to build much of an organization there, and is thus unlikely to do as well. With just 10 days left before that event, she has little time to really get into that race even if her strong NH finish results in a pile of new cash coming into her campaign.

South Carolina comes a week later, and she is barely even registering in polls there. Where Bill Clinton could finish an also-ran in New Hampshire in 1992 and then be pushed by the fawning news media into front-runner status, today’s corrupt media is too bought-in to promoting Preacher Pete and Mini-Mike Bloomberg as the great hopes to head off The Commie to spend much time pushing Sen. Klobuchar as an alternative. So, expect the talk around Klobuchar in the coming days to focus on the viability of her becoming a potential “moderate” running mate to balance a ticket headed by The Commie.

Then, of course, there were the big, big loooooosers of the night: Quid Pro Joe and Lieawatha, the two former “front-runners” in the race.

Think about this: Amy Klobuchar, who finished third, received more votes than both Crazy Uncle Joe and Fauxcahontas, combined. Neither candidate could even crack 10% of the vote. Given that these two had polled neck-and-neck in the state with The Commie since last April, that is a stunning result.

Biden was so certain he would have a horrible finish in New Hampshire that he cancelled his “celebration” party there and fled to South Carolina Tuesday afternoon so he could deliver a despicably pandering speech to a crowd that actually had some – as he calls them – “black and brown folks” in it.

After delivering her own concession speech, Little Mouth Always Running was seen trying to score some peyote and heading off to the nearest sweat lodge so she could re-calibrate her campaign’s strategy.

While all the drama in New Hampshire was taking place, Billionaire Bloomberg was spending another $30 million or so on ads in the big Super Tuesday states, which are the first ones where he will actually be on the ballot. By the time these other folks get to that point in the calendar, they’ll all be either broke or exhausted.

This is chaos, folks, a chaos that is setting up perfectly for a brokered convention in Milwaukee in July.

Finally, the story the media is ignoring this morning is the story about turnout. Total Democrat turnout was once again lower than expected, with 280,000 total votes cast in that primary, compared to expectations of more than 300,000. This is a depressed and floundering Party.

Meanwhile, GOP turnout wildly exceeded expectations, with more than 130,000 votes cast compared to projections of something around 100,000. The President received twice as many votes as Barack Obama, Bill Clinton or Ronald Reagan received in New Hampshire in their re-election bids.

And that is what President Donald Trump calls WINNING.

 

Here are my updated, post-New Hampshire odds for the ultimate winner of the Democrat nomination:

The Commie:     5 to 2

Mini-Mike:         3 to 1

Preacher Pete:  15 to 1

Klobuchar:        20 to 1

Quid Pro Joe:   100 to 1

Fauxcahontas:  100 to 1

Hillary Clinton at a brokered convention:  5 to 4

 

That is all.

Could Amy Klobuchar Emerge From the New Hampshire Pack?

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

I know, I know, but don’t laugh.  – The Democrat Party has a long history of seeing surprise candidates emerge out of the New Hampshire primary. What’s interesting about this history is that the “surprise” has often not come with who won the primary, but in a candidate who finished as a surprisingly strong also-ran.

In 1972, Edmund Muskie won the primary as he was predicted to do, but it was radical-leftist candidate George McGovern who stole the thunder coming out of the Granite State, finishing in a surprisingly strong second place with over 37% of the vote. McGovern rode the momentum of that strong second place showing all the way to the nomination, culminating his year with an historic landslide loss to Richard Nixon.

In 1976, Jimmy Carter defied the pre-primary polls, narrowly defeating both Mo Udall and Birch Bayh to become the clear front-runner in the race for the nomination.

Colorado Senator Gary Hart shocked the pundits with a big win in New Hampshire over Walter Mondale in 1984. But it was the second-place finisher who ended up winning the nomination and the right to be the Democrats’ sacrificial lamb against Ronald Reagan.

Senator Paul Tsongas entered the 1992 New Hampshire primary with a strong polling lead over a crowded field, and to no one’s surprise, ended up winning. But it was Bill Clinton who stole the show, coming in second after having been basically written-off by all the “smart people” in Washington following a virtual no-show in the Iowa Caucuses. In his speech that evening, Clinton declared himself to be the “comeback kid,” and a fawning national press corps fell in love with him. The race for the nomination essentially ended that night.

Many will not remember that the Pantsuit Princess actually made a comeback of her own in New Hampshire in 2008, narrowly winning the primary following a poor showing in Iowa of her own. But despite losing, Barack Obama His Own Self stole the show with a powerful speech, and the same corrupt media that had jumped on the Clinton team in 1992 immediately signed up to play a similar role on Team Obama.

The Commie won big in New Hampshire in 2016, capturing 60% of the vote to 37% for the Fainting Felon. But by then the Clinton camp owned the DNC lock, stock and barrel, and succeeded in rigging the process against Sanders for the rest of the way.

So, who’s going to be the surprise of this year’s primary? It could very well be Amy Klobuchar, Senator from [checks notes] Minnesota. No one really took a Klobuchar candidacy seriously when she decided to enter the race over a year ago, and who knows – maybe last week’s 13%, 5th place finish in Iowa will turn out to have been her high water mark in the race.

But I keep getting this pesky feeling that she might surprise us.

Klobuchar has had a hard time raising money; she isn’t a flashy person who gets attention by shouting or cussing or making outrageous statements like so many of her competitors do; and she carries with her the baggage of a reputation as being one of the most abusive bosses on Capitol Hill. This is not an admirable person, but hey, she’s a Democrat so that doesn’t matter.

But she has basically become this race’s tortoise, plugging slowly but steadily behind a field of hares, slowly gaining ground on the field as they go off on their tirades and tangents. The photo that accompanies this piece captures the essence of her candidacy perfectly, standing there calmly, with a disapproving look on her face, in the midst of a pack of braying jackasses. It reminds me of the look my dear mother used to get when she would catch me and my brothers fighting in the back yard.

That photo is from last Friday’s debate, during which Klobuchar, by all accounts, had a pretty strong showing. I wouldn’t know, because I just cannot bring myself to waste 2-3 hours watching those things. But that seems to be the consensus.

Klobuchar has also been drawing some pretty strong crowds this week in New Hampshire, at least “strong” in the context of this Democrat race, where getting a high school gymnasium half-filled with voters and staff constitutes a “strong” turnout.

Klobuchar’s other main asset as a candidate is the storm that constantly brews around her in the form of the three braying jackasses in that photo, along with Preacher Pete and Faucahontas. Think about it: Klobuchar is the only candidate among those six who has not had a nickname bestowed upon her by President Donald Trump.

Finally, there is Klobuchar’s reputation as being a “moderate” among this field of leftist lunatics. As Joe Biden and his “electability” image rapidly implode, all of his voters are going to be looking to land somewhere. It seems to be that Klobuchar fills that bill better than any of the other candidates on the New Hampshire ballot, which does not include billionaire Mike Bloomberg.

All of these factors are combining to give me a sneaking suspicion that, when the dust settles late Tuesday evening, Amy Klobuchar might well be this year’s “surprise” coming out of New Hampshire. She isn’t going to win – The Commie almost certainly will do that unless the DNC can figure out a way to defraud the vote as it did in Iowa – but given the shifting dynamics in the field this week, it is conceivable she might receive more votes than Quid Pro Joe and/or Fauxcahontas.

Finishing ahead of either of those two would qualify Klobuchar as a “surprise.” Beating both of them would constitute a shock to the Democrat system. Either place would rocket her up to the top of speculation about being a running mate for the eventual nominee.

Tomorrow will be very, very interesting.

That is all.

Recapping A Historic Week of #WINNING

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

When the history of the Trump Administration is written, the week just past will be remembered as the week in which the tide of history turned, not just in favor of President Donald Trump, but in favor of the American people and the American Republic as well. The forces of globalism are in retreat and tatters all over the developed world, and nowhere is that more clear than here in the United States, thanks to Mr. Trump’s endurance and leadership.

Let’s take a look at the events that have taken place since last Saturday, February 1, 2020:

Brexit becomes official. – There is no question that the fortunes of the Brexit movement in the UK and the nationalist Trump movement in the U.S. have been intertwined since the day Donald and Melania Trump rode the escalator into the lobby of Trump Tower to announce his candidacy. After a long and bitter, 3-1/2 year battle since the day it had been initially approved by the British voters, Brexit became official at 12:00 midnight, February 1, restoring the national sovereignty over the United Kingdom.

That moment in time came roughly 5 minutes after the United States Senate had voted to reject the calling of any new witnesses in its impeachment trial of President Trump, ensuring his ultimate acquittal in the Democrat/media’s absurd coup d’etat effort. The symbolism of those two historic events occurring within mere minutes of one another cannot be overemphasized.

The President’s historic State of the Union Speech – The optics around this speech could not have been more positive for President Trump or more negative for Nancy Pelosi and the Democrats in attendance. Americans got to see the true nature of the leftist radicals who make up the party’s caucus in congress, as shot after shot from the cameras showed their members scowling, jeering and even at times hissing as the President introduced a young mother who gave birth to a premature baby; another single mom to whose child he awarded an opportunity scholarship; a talk radio host with stage 4 cancer to whom he had the First Lady award a Medal of Freedom; and the rightful president of Venezuela.

The speech drove Speaker Nancy Pelosi into such a pique of outright rage that she tore the text to shreds as Trump finished, creating a visual so stunning and depraved that it will likely be used in most Republican TV ads for the general election.

Full acquittal. – Just 20 hours later, President Trump became the second president to be fully acquitted of impeachment charges, a verdict that will live in history for all-time. Simultaneously, the leader of the anti-Trump RINO faction, Mitt Romney, proved himself to be a despicable snake by becoming the first senator in history to cast a pro-conviction vote on one of the two articles of impeachment. Whether he understands it or not, Romney is now finished a viable candidate for any future GOP presidential nomination. As has so often been the case, yet another Trump enemy destroys himself with his own actions.

Dismissal of the Emoluments Clause litigation. – In a unanimous decision, a 3-judge panel of the DC Circuit Court of Appeals – none of whom are Trump appointees – dismissed the ridiculous and abusive lawsuit brought by 29 Democrat senators and 186 Democrat representatives alleging that President Trump had violated the Emoluments Clause of the Constitution. Another major win for the President in a clear case of mindless harassment by the Democrats.

The utter collapse of Joe Biden. – Quid Pro Joe Biden, who has been the clear front-runner for the Democrat presidential nomination for 10 solid months, saw his base of support completely collapse during the week. This was inevitable, as voters who just recently began paying attention to the Democrat race began to realize that Biden is clearly impaired and not in any way capable of holding the highest office in the land. The result was a poor, 4th-place finish in Iowa, where he barely was able to finish ahead 0f Amy Klobuchar. Biden’s polling numbers have nose-dived not only in New Hampshire, but also in Nevada and South Carolina, setting up the possibility that he will not win a single contest before heading into Super Tuesday.

The Democrat Party implodes in Iowa. – As if Pelosi’s antics weren’t damaging enough, the effort by the DNC to rig the results of the Iowa caucuses against The Commie, Bernie Sanders, resulted in such a mass of confusion and outright buffoonery that even the New York Times felt obligated to report on it. It is a muck-up of epic proportions from which the Party may never be able to recover.

As I write this today, six days after the voting, party officials have still been unable to release final results, and “irregularities” in which the published results do not match the results tabulated by the individual caucus managers have been identified in 95 of the state’s 99 counties. Unsurprisingly, virtually all of those “irregularities” work against The Commie and in favor of Preacher Pete Buttigieg, who the Party has tried to portray as the Caucus “winner.”

This is electoral larceny on an unprecedentedly grand scale.

Incredible jobs numbers. – On Wednesday, the ADP report on private sector jobs added for January came in at 291,000, almost doubling the consensus predictions by “experts” of 160,000. On Friday, the Labor Department non-farms jobs report for the month came in at 225,000, blasting through the “experts” forecast of 165,000. Despite a whopping 183,000 previously-discouraged workers coming back into the labor force during January, the rate of unemployment for all classes of Americans remained at record or near-record lows.

Cleaning House. – To cap off the most amazing week of non-stop WINNING of this or perhaps any presidency, the Administration began the process of cleaning house of coup plotters. Both of the Vindman twins serving as spies and leakers at the NSC were escorted from the White House premises late Friday afternoon, and a few hours later, smarmy Ambassador to the EU Gordon Sondland was relieved of his official duties. Much, much more cleaning house remains to be done, but these dismissals were a very fine way to start.

By week’s end, the Democrats were reeling from their week of horrific losing, obviously at a loss over where to head next. Their media supporters, meanwhile, were so panicked over what they were seeing that not a single Sunday morning fakenews program invited anyone from the White House to appear as a guest.

The Democrats no doubt will now cast about for another scam to try to run against the President, but the tactic has become so blatantly obvious to the vast majority of Americans that few will take seriously anything they and their corrupt media toadies drum up next. The Democrat Party, through its incessant dishonest machinations against the President over the last four years, has literally turned itself into the Boy who Cried Wolf. Not a good look for a political party with no policy agenda.

As for President Trump and his Administration, it’s hard to see what they could do to even come close to the level of WINNING seen in the past week.

Wait, how about this: The Department of Justice is still sitting on unacted-upon criminal referrals targeting Peter Strzok, Andrew McCabe and James Comey. Acting on some or all of those sure would make for a fun week.

How about it, Attorney General Barr?

That is all.

Joe Biden to Voters: “Don’t Vote For Me”

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

Ok, that wasn’t all he said. – The full sentence he muttered in response to a question about some voters worrying about his advanced age was, “I say if they’re concerned, don’t vote for me.” But if President Donald Trump had made that exact same statement, the heading I used for this piece would have appeared above the fold on the front page of this morning’s New York Times and Washington Post. You know it’s true.

Where the nation’s Unfrozen Caveman Senator is concerned, isn’t literally everyone at least a little bit concerned about his age? Doesn’t every one you know have at least some concern about whether or not this walking, talking gaffe machine is in full possession of his mental faculties? Trust me, Joe Biden is not a guy who should be giving Democrat voters such an easy out. As his polling lead continues to slowly but steadily drop, this is a man who should be clinging to every vote every bit as fiercely as he clings to other men’s wives on stage at public events.

Instead, this is what comes out of his mouth in an unscripted moment, and it was far from the only gaffe of his day in New Hampshire. While walking around the town of Keene, NH, Biden had this to say:

The man doesn’t even know what state he’s in half the time.

Then there was the whole assassination cluster-gaffe this week. On Tuesday, he talked about how the 1968 assassinations of Martin Luther King and Robert F. Kennedy had such a huge impact on his young life. Such a huge impact, in fact, that he thought they took place in the “late ’70s” when he was already a mid-30 year-old veteran of the U.S. Senate.

He tried to mitigate that damage on Friday, when he actually got the year those assassinations took place correct, but then compounded his problems by speculating about how things would have turned out had his former boss, Barack Obama his own self, also been assassinated. My goodness.

Now do you understand why his handlers have been feverishly contracting his schedule of public appearances and doing what they can to prevent him from taking questions from the press? When was the last time you saw Biden do a major TV interview? While all his younger – and in Bernie Sanders’ case, older – opponents are rushing to do live town halls on a very friendly CNN or even friendlier MSNBC, have you seen Creepy Uncle Joe do one?

Well, this is why. The guy simply cannot be trusted not to destroy himself in unguarded moments. This is nothing new – this has always been the case where Biden’s concerned. The only thing that’s different now is that, instead of running against Republicans who everyone in our fake news media hate, he’s running against fellow socialist Democrats who everyone in our fake news media love. Thus, his real behavior is actually getting some coverage.

Expect his poll numbers to fall again in the next round of polls, now that he’s given concerned voters this easy out. Couldn’t happen to a nicer guy.

That is all.
