Dem Debate: Clipping Coupons, Stealing Your Money, and Confiscating Guns

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

I didn’t watch last night’s Democrat debate, because I’m sane and would prefer to stay that way. Besides, there was baseball on TV. But I did follow the festivities in real time on social media, and quickly realized I didn’t miss anything that wasn’t entirely predictable.

For example, there was this lovely moment, when the two near-octogenarians in the race, perhaps surprised to see each other still alive and kicking, gave each other a big hug:

Image may contain: 1 person, suit

Awwww, isn’t that cute? It’s like that big family reunion back in 1963 when both of your great-grandpas showed up together for the last time.

Speaking of Quid Pro Joe, he got the very predicable special handling from CNN hack Anderson Cooper, who prefaced a question about his bullying of the Ukraine in order to protect is ne’er-do-well son with “You have been falsely accused by the White House…”, and bumbling ‘Ol Joe was barely able to take it from there. If Cooper could’ve taken him by the hand and walked him through an answer, you can be sure he would have done so.

At other times, though, the Unfrozen Caveman Senator didn’t fare quite so well. Check out this clip, when he’s asked by some chick about the Marxist “wealth tax” scheme being touted by The Commie and Fauxcahontas:

That’s right: He literally said “clipping coupons in the stock market.” He apparently thinks Nabisco often runs “2 for 1 specials” on purchases of its stock, and General Motors offers 5 year, 0 percent financing from time to time.

In case you couldn’t understand the rest of his gibberish answer, here’s everything he said, verbatim:

“No, look, er, ah,um, demonizing wealth people, what I’ve talked about is how you get things done. And the way to get things done is take a look at the tax code right now.  The idea, we have to start rewarding work not just wealth. I would eliminate the capital gains tax [rapid blinking and scrunch face occurs here] that i..I w, I would raise the capital gains tax to the highest l.., rate of 39.5 percent, would double it. Because guess what? Why in God’s name should someone who’s clipping coupons in the stock market make, in fact, pay lower tax rate than someone who in fact is, uh, like I said, is, th, uh,  a school teacher and a fireman.”

Got that? So, all you stock market coupon clippers better put those scissors away and go out and get a job teaching or putting out fires. Because that’s the world Quid Pro Joe lives in these days.

In another highlight, Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard, who remains the only actual interesting person on the Democrat stage, ripped into the two main drivers of today’s fake news media, CNN and the New York Times. Hilariously, those two fake news outlets also happened to be the hosts of last night’s debate. Here’s the clip:

For those who still like to read things, here is the key passage:

“Not only that, but, the New York Times and CNN have also smeared veterans like myself for calling for an end to this regime change war. Just two days ago, the New York Times put out an article saying that I’m a Russian asset and an Assad apologist and all these different smears. This morning, a CNN commentator said on national television that I’m an asset of Russia. Completely despicable.”

Boom. Don’t hear language like that about our fake news media coming from any of the other Democrats on that stage, mainly because the New York Times and CNN treat them all with kid gloves.

But maybe the best part came when Irish Bob O’Rourke appeared to question the political courage of Navy veteran Pete Buttigieg, and that did not go well for the Texas dilettante:

Oof.

In an interview released earlier on Tuesday, O’Rourke also signaled that his pending failure to win the Democrat nomination would likely end his amazingly mediocre political career, saying “I cannot fathom a scenario where I would run for public office again if I’m not the nominee.”

All of his former fantasy lovers at various Texas and national fake media outlets would be heartbroken, but those words fall on most Texans like manna from heaven.

Note to Beto: You aren’t winning anything in this race, given that your campaign has been the most laughable, miserable, epic failure this year has seen. So, please, keep your word, for once.

Image result for i don't believe you gif

To sum up the rest: Julian Castro told a bunch of lies about immigration, Fauxcahontas refused again to admit she is going to raise taxes on the middle class, Kamala Harris bumbled and stumbled all over herself, Andrew Yang barely got any airtime, Cory Booker continued sucking up to Creepy Uncle Joe, Tom Steyer was on the stage but nobody knew why, or even who in the hell he was, and everyone went after Fauxcahontas at one time or another because she’s the real frontrunner in the race.

But in the most important news of the evening, the Nationals beat the Cardinals to sweep to their first-ever National League pennant.

That is all.

P.S.: As I was typing this piece up this morning, President Donald Trump summed last night’s festivities up perfectly:

Wednesday Was a No-Good, Terrible, Very Bad Day for the Deep State Dems

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

Wednesday may have been the worst day the Democrat Party has had during the Trump presidency. – Just as it appeared to some that the Deep State Dems might be gaining a little traction in their neverending coup d’etat, they suffered a series a series of self-inflicted wounds and bombs lobbed by the President into their midst that had them scrambling to pretend they’re actually going to work on real legislation by the end of the day.

That pretense is just that, of course, as the Democrat Party has totally sacrificed itself at the altar of its ultra-radical social media Outrage Mob and its pea-brained organ grinder monkey leader, Alexandria Ocasio Cortez.

There will be no serious effort to pass meaningful legislation for the rest of this year, as San Fran Nan’s gang of Munchkin committee chairmen focus their efforts solely on staging this fake impeachment “investigation” that is just another bit of DC Kabuki Theater, and a massive one at that.

Image result for midgets in wizard of oz

Pictured above (l to r): Eliot Engel, Adam Schiff and Jerrold Nadler.

Let’s just go through a few of the disasters the Democrats suffered throughout the day on Wednesday:

Pompeo decimates Democrat case for subpoenas. – At a press conference in Rome, Italy, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo reiterates his firm opposition to allowing any of State Department professionals to be forced to become a party to the Democrats’ carnival midway freak show, and lays out a detailed constitutional case for taking that stance. The Outrage Mob went into full outrage mode, because of course they did, but nobody real cared.

Pelosi and Schiff hold a disastrous press conference. – Tweedle-Dee and Tweedle-Dum followed shortly thereafter with possibly the most dishonest press event since Baghdad Bob went on TV to assure the world that all was well in Iraq, promising a fake impeachment process that would be “fair to the President,” and with Pelosi’s newly-restructured face trying and failing to summon tears about how she has a big case of the sads about it all. The unintentionally-hilarious presser ends with San Fran Nan begging in vain to convince one member of the Democrat toady press to ask her a question – any question at all would have done – about something other than impeachment.

Schiff revealed to have coordinated with the fake whistleblower before the complaint was even written. – The New York Times published a piece in which it claimed that Schiff had in fact begun coordinating with the fake whistleblower even before the fake whistleblower’s complaint had been drafted. Which means that this entire charade is being run on the exact same playbook the Democrat/media complex used to smear Brett Kavanaugh a year ago, given that that all began with Dianne Feinstein coordinating efforts with false witness Christine Blasey Ford months before Ford “came forward” with her false allegations. Schiff naturally denied the allegation in the Times’s report, but no matter: Schiff has been caught publicly in so many fabrications now that he has no credibility with any non-media American, and the likely truth of his mendacity has been planted in the public’s mind.

Image

Trump owns them both in three different press events. – The President, meanwhile, held three separate press availabilties at the White House during the day, eviscerating the Democrats’ false case at every turn. Having been handed the New York Times piece about Schiff’s mendacity just before the third presser, he took it a step further, contending that Schiff actually helped write the complaint. While the corrupt media immediately went into full scoffing and tut-tutting mode over that statement, how many dozens of times have we seen the President make a statement like this and watch it turn out to be 100% true days, weeks, or months later?

Ukraine President Zelensky confirms he has never even met Rudy Giuliani. – This of course puts the lie to various media reports that have claimed that Giuliani had met face-to-face with Zelensky even before the July call with President Trump that supposedly germinated the fake whistleblower complaint.

Details of recent Barr/Durham visit to Italy become public. – While rumors and a few reports about this recent trip had begun to float around late last week, the details and their implications did not fully spill out into the mainstream and social media worlds until Wednesday.

State Department IG, after requesting “emergency hearing” with House Intel Committee staff, delivers folder full of four-month old newspaper clippings. – News of this event, possibly the greatest trolling event in federal government history, landed on Twitter early in the evening thanks to the reporting of the Daily Caller’s Amber Athey:

Image result for lucy charlie brown football

Brutal, indeed.

What Wednesday demonstrated more than anything else is that literally everything the Democrats do or say is a lie. Everything is just more theater to try to influence public opinion from a political party that has succeeded in purging itself of actual substance.

They will keep doubling down on the neverending coup d’etat not because it’s likely to be a successful strategy, but because they literally have no idea what else to do at this point.

If the Democrat Party were a brain, it would be that of a one-trick Donkey.

No American Has Any Obligation to be Honest With Our Dishonest Media

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

Lewandowski’s right: No one has any obligation to be honest with a dishonest press. – Writing in The Atlantic, Russell Berman has a pearl-clutching piece about Cory Lewandowski treating Jerrold Nadler’s contemptible fake impeachment hearing yesterday with, well, contempt. Which is exactly what Lewandowski did, and deservedly so.

Berman lays out several examples of Lewandowski’s alleged contempt, and they’re all pretty much accurate. The upper east-side reader base of The Atlantic will all tut-tut and mutter ‘well, I never,’ naturally forgetting how they all cheered when an array of Obama-era officials committed mass perjury before the same committee during 2017-18, when it was chaired by a Republican.

One very interesting exchange Berman whines about came when Lewandowski told Democrat hired consultant Lawfare lawyer Barry Berke that,  “I have no obligation to be honest with the media because they are just as dishonest as anybody else,” a statement that elicited gasps in the hearing room. No doubt most, if not all of those gasps came from members of the media assembled there.

So, here’s the irony of a writer for The Atlantic complaining about Lewandowski’s contempt not just for the Democrats on the House Judiciary Committee, but also for the fake news media: On the same day Berman’s piece was published, the magazine produced another piece, written by the dishonest pair of New York Times reporters who were caught in massive lies about Justice Brett Kavanaugh over the weekend.

As discovered by the great Mollie Hemingway, Senior Editor for The Federalist, The Atlantic’s piece, intended as a free advertisement for the Times’ reporters’ new smear book on Kavanaugh, contains another gigantic whopper. As we pointed out in yesterday’s Campaign Update, the book focuses on an alleged incident during Kavanaugh’s time in college – 38 years ago – in which he supposedly committed a lewd act at a party towards a girl who was supposedly there.

Never mind that the girl in question has no memory of any such incident, or even being at the party – something you would think would stick in her mind into perpetuity. Never mind that the authors end up admitting that they have literally no actual witnesses to the alleged lewd act at all, and base their entire despicable book on pure hearsay that no real journalist would ever dream of citing. This is Brett Kavanaugh, threat to Roe v. Wade, we’re talking about here, so the dragon must be slain by any means possible, even if it requires the commission of conscious journalistic mendacity.

Hemingway exposed the authors for the deceitful hacks they truly are over the weekend, taking less than 24 hours to do so, and now exposes them even further as lying yet again in their Atlantic piece. In that piece, the authors claim that “The people who allegedly witnessed the event—Kavanaugh’s friends Kevin Genda, David Todd, and David White—have kept mum about it.”

That is a straight-up falsehood, as Hemingway details, pointing to a New Yorker piece written about the alleged incident a year ago:

One of the male classmates who Ramirez said egged on Kavanaugh denied any memory of the party. ‘I don’t think Brett would flash himself to Debbie, or anyone, for that matter,’ he said. Asked why he thought Ramirez was making the allegation, he responded, ‘I have no idea.’ The other male classmate who Ramirez said was involved in the incident commented, ‘I have zero recollection.’

In a statement, two of those male classmates who Ramirez alleged were involved in the incident, the wife of a third male student she said was involved, and one other classmate, Dan Murphy, disputed Ramirez’s account of events: ‘We were the people closest to Brett Kavanaugh during his first year at Yale. He was a roommate to some of us, and we spent a great deal of time with him, including in the dorm where this incident allegedly took place. Some of us were also friends with Debbie Ramirez during and after her time at Yale. We can say with confidence that if the incident Debbie alleges ever occurred, we would have seen or heard about it—and we did not.

There’s even more, but you get the gist. The New York Times reporters – who I refuse to name here for the same reason I refuse to name mass killers, because they’re all shameful attention-seekers – at best failed to conduct even the most rudimentary research into the previous reporting by others on this alleged incident. At worst, they simply hoped to cover up the truth about what these supposed witnesses have in fact said about it.

So, this just becomes another in a long, long line of incidents in which “news” outlets like the New York Times and The Atlantic have been caught in blatant efforts to deceive the public about Trump-related officials. It should also be noted that the New Yorker piece referred to by Hemingway was itself revealed to contain a string of falsehoods shortly after it was published.

In the 4 years since Donald Trump announced his presidential candidacy, we have witnessed dozens of incidents – if not hundreds – in which supposed “news” organizations like these three, along with CNN, MSNBC, ABC, NBC, CBS, the Washington Post and many others have published or aired heinously false reports about President Trump, his family, and a vast array of Administration officials and been forced to later sheepishly correct them and even fire the reporters and editors involved.

These are not honest mistakes. These are not oversights or errors in the editing process. These are obvious, intentional efforts to deceive in order to attain a political goal. We know this because the “mistakes” always, without exception, serve to damage the President or anyone connected to him. Honest mistakes would cut both ways.

This is the sorry state of America’s news media today, and it is not getting better over time. If anything, the incidents of outright false reporting are accelerating as the Democrats and their media toadies continue to fail in their efforts to “get” Trump. A sense of rising desperation does that to people.

Given this reality, what possible obligation would Cory Lewandowski or any other American have to deal with such a manifestly dishonest media establishment honestly and truthfully? When you know that anything you say to a reporter is going to be twisted, edited, omitted or taken out of context in order to be made to seem damaging, why worry about honesty? When you know the media outlet you are dealing with cares nothing about facts, why bother with facts?

The press corps can gasp, tsk-tsk and mutter all the “well, I nevers” they want, but this is a situation of their own making. They have made this bed, and now they are lying in it, both figuratively and literally.

Enemies of the people, plain and simple.

That is all.

CBS Exposes a Corrupt New York Times Smear

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

That thing that happens when not everyone is down with the latest smear effort. – The newsfakers at the New York Times made big news of their own on Monday when they were forced by actual journalists to issue a correction to their latest smear story targeting Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh.

This latest story was penned by two Times fake reporters who have a new book out. Oh, joy! The book rehashes old accusations against Kavanaugh brought forward and rejected as baseless last year, while pretending to add new meat to the bone to one accuser who supposedly claimed that Kavanaugh exposed himself to her at a party. The fake authors claim in the book to have found 7 “witnesses” who supposedly remember the incident.

Big problem: Not a single one of those seven “witnesses” make any claim to have actually witnessed anything. Only one of them was actually at the party in question and has no specific memory of Kavanaugh being involved in any exposing of anything other than a beer cup. None of the other six were even at the party. Oh.

Wait! It gets better: The alleged “victim” herself has no memory of the “incident” alleged in the book, and refused to even discuss it with the authors. Now, that’s some “journalism” right there, huh?

The fake reporters naturally saved those bits of  key information for very late in the book and made no mention of them in the story they penned for the oh-so accommodating pages of their employer’s fake newspaper. But actual journalists at other media outlets, including Mollie Hemingway at The Federalist, exposed all of this and much more over the weekend, creating a huge blowback towards the Times and its fake reporters and forcing the Times to issue a correction to the story.

This smear effort was so transparent and corrupt that it even had Brit Hume, who has stubbornly avoided calling his colleagues corrupt all these years, finally giving in to unavoidable reality:

But by the time the “correction” was issued, the intended damage to Justice Kavanaugh had already been done, which was the plan all along. For every 100 people who read or heard about the original story, you might have five who read or heard about the correction. This is how our fake news media does these smear campaigns, of course.

Normally, everyone else in the fake news media is fully on-board with smears led by the Times, and never make any effort to inform their readers/viewers of the journalistic mendacity being practiced by the fake newspaper of record. Last night, Jan Crawford at CBS News had apparently had enough of this nonsense.

Crawford, in a report aired on the CBS Evening News, reported on the Times’s correction, and went even further, noting the following:

Oh. Gosh, that’s kind of important information, too, isn’t it? This bit of explosive, real news also gets passing mention in the book by the fake Times reporters, but was naturally excluded from their piece in the Times. The news about Leland Keyser putting the lie to Blasey Ford’s original put-up smear is, in fact, the only real “news” contained in the book at all.

So, here we have the anatomy of the classic fake news media smear as led by the New York Times.

– When your first massive effort to smear the subject during his nominating process failed to bring its desired result, have two of your fakest reporters collaborate on a book that rehashes the original smears but supplements them with “new” information that isn’t new at all.

– When they stumble across one bit of actual real news that would be bombshell evidence of the subject’s actual innocence related to the original smear, bury it in the book and hope no one actually reads it.

– Then have your fake reporters pen a story for your newspaper and make sure they don’t mention the real news in it and exclude key facts that would also serve to exonerate the subject.

– Take that story to print, and when you get caught excluding the key information, wait at least 48 hours before issuing a half-assed “correction” that no one will read.

As long as everyone else in the fake news media is on-board with the new smear effort, you’re golden. Conservative outlets like The Federalist and Fox News don’t matter because your own readers/viewers will just dismiss them out of hand.

Foolproof, right? And CBS news, whose own “news” division is mostly just a bunch of toadies who do little but parrot DNC talking points and rehash stories printed by the Times and the Washington Post each day, is basically the last competing outlet you’d expect to give up the ghost.

But there’s Jan Crawford, bringing the Times’s fake chickens home to roost. Who knows why? Maybe Times Editor Dean Baquet pissed somebody off.

Regardless, good for Ms. Crawford for her decision to be a real journalist, at least for one day. I bet it feels good for her to be reporting the truth for a change.

The Democrat/media propaganda complex is going to need a new smear.

That is all.

18 Years Later, The New York Times Still Can’t Honestly Identify the Enemy

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

Garbage newspaper gonna put out garbage news:

Image

So, just as they do in the debate over gun control, our fake news media parrots the DNC-approved narrative that the inanimate objects – the “airplanes” – were the bad things here, not the radical Islamic terrorists who flew those airplanes into the World Trade Center and the Pentagon.

What a disgrace.

After the perpetual outrage crowd on social media blew up over the tweet, the Times changed the wording in a subsequent tweet to read “Eighteen years have passed since terrorists commandeered airplanes to take aim at the World Trade Center and bring them down.”

So, at least the Times staff is capable of being shamed into grudgingly writing the word “terrorist,” which I suppose is progress given that the weasels at the DNC most likely didn’t even want them going that far. But what kind of “terrorists” were those people that day? What was their motivation for committing the atrocities that murdered 3,000 people?

This is a national illness, folks. This national illness that prevents our fake news media, one of our major political parties and even many Republicans from properly identifying freedom’s existential enemy of modern times has led directly to multiple supporters of that enemy – radical Islam – now representing congressional districts from Minnesota and Michigan. That national illness, this refusal to properly identify and appropriately deal with that enemy in the harshest of ways is why our soldiers remain stuck serving in faraway lands 18 years later, with some coming back in body bags every year.

Many Americans, however, still retain clear eyes despite the media/Democrat onslaught of distraction tactics and messaging over the last 18 years. Here is one of them:

 

We have an enemy. The enemy’s identity remains crystal clear all these years later. If we cannot as a nation properly identify that enemy, we can never hope to defeat it.

The people at the New York Times know that, and don’t care. They are a big part of the problem. They were enemies of the people 18 years ago, and they remain enemies of the people today. Don’t kid yourselves otherwise.

That is all.

GOP North Carolina Special Election Wins Are Yuuuuuuuuuuge

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

Guess what story won’t be the lead on CNN or above the fold on the front page of the New York Times this morning. – If you guessed “the special elections in two North Carolina congressional districts?”, you would be right:

Image

Why all the long faces, CNN?

The reason this story will now be downplayed and quickly dropped, of course, is that Republicans won both by comfortable margins. That was expected to be the case in congressional district 3, which is a very safe GOP district and where the Republican candidate was not burdened by any controversy, and the Democrats hadn’t poured millions of dollars in out-of-state money into the race. So, the 24-point winning margin by Republican Greg Murphy came as no surprise to anyone.

But CD9 was a different story. There, the Republican candidate, Dan Bishop, faced a huge influx of Democrat money coming in from New York and California to back Democrat Dan McReady, who had narrowly lost the race to another Republican, Mark Harris, in 2018. But Harris became the rarest of rare animals in U.S. politics – a Republican who got caught committing voter fraud in that race.

North Carolina elections officials ruled that the seat would remain unfilled until a special election could be held. Our fake national news media, led by CNN and the NY Times, eagerly anticipated what they all felt would be a Democrat win for McReady in CD9. Surely, they all reasoned, reciting the exact same DNC-approved talking points each and every day for the past month, the burden of the evil Orange Man in the White House and the scandal left behind by Harris would be too much for Bishop to overcome. Surely, McReady would be able to find enough voters in the district’s cemeteries and bus in voters from other states to win the day.

But no, in the end, even though the final polls in the race showed McReady even or with a slight lead, Bishop prevailed by almost 4,000 votes. The final blow in Bishop’s favor seemed to be the decision by President Donald Trump to fly in on Monday night and hold a raucus rally to boost voter enthusiasm for Bishop.

So today, you will see some perfunctory reporting on the results of these two Republican victories, and then the fake news media will drop the story like a hot potato. Because that is what our fake national news media does.

For the GOP, the outcomes of these two races represents very encouraging news. North Carolina has been trending in a bad direction for the past 20 years, as it has become a favored landing spot for New Yorkers fleeing the confiscatory tax policies of that state. All of the “experts” based in New York and D.C. fully expected that trend to continue in these races.

But what we saw instead is very troubling news for the Democrats and their media toadies. One big example came in Cumberland County, home of the city of Fayetteville. In 2016, that was a Democrat stronghold, with Hillary Clinton winning it by 16% of the vote over Donald Trump. On Tuesday, Bishop actually won that county by slightly less than 1%.

Robeson County, heavily-populated by the Lumbee Indian Tribe, went to McReady by 15% of the vote in 2018. Last night, Bishop came within 1% of actually winning the county, and the Lumbee-dominated precincts actually went to Bishop.

None of these results were expected in the DNC/Fake news media talking points, and help to explain all the long faces you saw if you watched the coverage on CNN and MSNBC last night. It was just one more race in which the polls were wrong, the “experts” were wrong and the talking points were wrong.

Couldn’t happen to a more deserving bunch of people.

That is all.

Two Toddlers Give us a Glimpse of America Outside of the Perpetual Outrage Mob

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

See? There is still justice in America. – If you were as outraged last year by the absurdly-light 30-day sentence handed down to the attacker of Senator Rand Paul, well, take heart: That case was remanded back to the federal district court that issued it yesterday by the 6th Circuit Court of appeals. The 6th Circuit ruled that the district judge lacked a “compelling justification” for the light sentence for the commission of an assault on a member of congress so brutal that Sen. Paul is still trying to recover fully from it.

The new Three Stooges: Sleepy, Sleazy and Dopey.

Image may contain: 3 people, people smiling, closeup

If Vaudeville – where the original Three Stooges got their start – still existed, these guys would be a huge hit.

This is what real America – as opposed to social media/conventional media perpetual outrage America – really looks like:

Those of us who pay close attention to the news and are active on social media tend to forget that. The merchants of perpetual outrage at places like CNN, the New York Times, Facebook and Twitter want you all to believe that America is this horrible place where everyone hates everyone else and where every day in every city is just another confrontation between Antifa terrorists and the Proud Boys agitators. Conventional media and social media outlets want you to believe that that is the world you all live in because that belief generates traffic to their websites and viewers to their TV channels.

That’s the America they’re all trying to create.

But real America is different, and the real America perseveres.

The real America is a place in which my wife and I could take our entire three-generation family to spend a week in New York City last December and never experience anything but lovely, pleasant interactions with people of all races, colors, religions and creeds in crowded places all over the city.

The real America is the place where you go to your grandkids’ elementary school for Grandparents’ Lunch day, and spend an hour watching hundreds of children of all races, economic standing and upbringings and dozens of teachers and school administrators do nothing but smile, laugh and dine with one another.

The real America is the place where you go to the local Wal-Mart or Target or grocery store and don’t for a moment notice or care what the race or political leanings of the people shopping and working there happens to be.

The real America is the place where tens of millions of people get up every morning and go to work and engage in all manner of collaborative efforts with people from all manner of backgrounds and ages and get real stuff done that generates economic growth and improves our society. And then they get a group of those same people together to go grab a beer when they’re done working.

The real America is the place where tens of millions of people still get up on the Sabbath and go to churches, synagogues and mosques in thousands of cities in all 50 states.

The real America is the place where millions of little kids like the two in that video run up and hug each other and express real, genuine love because that is their natural behavior. The people at ABC who posted that video on Twitter yesterday want you to think that is a rare thing, but it’s something you can see everywhere in America every day if you just pay attention.

The perpetual outrage and hate thrown at us every day by the conventional media and social media mobs are learned behaviors, not our natural state.

The real America is the place in which tens of millions of ordinary, every day people of all religions, all races, all colors, all social standings and all backgrounds refuse to learn those behaviors.

That real America drives the perpetual outrage mob nuts. Keep it up.

That is all.

The Democrats Demand Their Recession!

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

As you watch the Democrats and their fake news media toadies attempt to convince Americans we are in a recession when the economy is in fact booming, remember they have done this all before. – This is just page 284 or something from the Democrat/media playbook, and as George H.W. Bush found out the hard way in 1991-2, the effort has succeeded before.

Not that Poppy Bush deserved to be re-elected in 1992 after reneging on his “read my lips, no new taxes” promise to the voters, but the main reason why he lost that election was because most voters went to the polls convinced that an economy that was humming right along was in fact in a recession. That mis-perception was 100% due to the massive brainwashing campaign that had been mounted by the Democrat/media propaganda complex for 15 solid months leading up to election day.

So, if you’re wondering why each and every one of the Sunday morning opinion shows focused on the “are we in a recession?” fake topic, rest assured that was no coincidence. With the whole “Russia collusion” hoax having miserably failed, the Democrat/media complex is just going through their handy playbook, tossing stuff up against the wall to see if any of it will stick.

It won’t stick this time, for one key reason: In 1991, the country did go through a very brief, very modest recession. That was the “hook,” complete with actual data, that afforded the brainwashing effort a shred of credibility. The brain-washers do not enjoy any similar luxury today, as the Trump economy, with its full employment, low inflation and high wage growth rates has given us strong GDP growth for two uninterrupted years now.

What they are engaged in today is an audacious effort to destroy consumer confidence, because they understand that we have a consumption-based economy. No kidding – these people cringe and become angry when they see the strong consumer confidence numbers published each month, so they are literally attempting to tank the U.S. economy.

Yes, it’s despicable. Yes, it’s disgraceful. Yes, it is disgusting. But hey, these are Democrats we’re talking about here – you expected something else?

Speaking of despicable, disgraceful and disgusting, how about that New York Times, huh? – In case you missed it, New York Times Executive Editor Dean Baquet got caught on audio admitting that his fake news publication had literally built its staff to promote the “Russia collusion” story, and is now regrouping because, in his words, “the story has changed” to racism.

But of course, as we have known now for two solid years, the story never changed at all: “Russia collusion” was a massive hoax from day one, and everyone involved knew it was a hoax, including Baquet and his tailor-made staff at the New York Times. What has actually changed this year is that the vaunted Mueller Report failed to support the hoax, humiliating the Times, and all the myriad other fake news organizations that had pushed the hoax on behalf of the Democrat Party beginning in mid-2016.

Or as Baquet put it:

The closest Baquet came to identifying a moment when the paper had misjudged current events was when he described it as being “a little tiny bit flat-footed” after the Mueller investigation ended. “Our readers who want Donald Trump to go away suddenly thought, ‘Holy shit, Bob Mueller is not going to do it,’” Baquet said.

Oh.

So, what is a professional propagandist to do when he has been caught “a little tiny bit flat-footed” promoting one hoax? Why, move on to promoting another hoax, of course.

Thus it was that, in the same town hall meeting in which the admissions above were made, Baquet promised to re-tool his staff and his fake newspaper’s overarching narrative to now focus on how everything in American life is about racism:

 “How do we cover America, that’s become so divided by Donald Trump?” he said. “How do we grapple with all the stuff you all are talking about? How do we write about race in a thoughtful way, something we haven’t done in a large way in a long time?”

“We built our newsroom to cover one story, and we did it truly well. Now we have to regroup, and shift resources and emphasis to take on a different story. I’d love your help with that. As Audra Burch said when I talked to her this weekend, this one is a story about what it means to be an American in 2019. It is a story that requires deep investigation into people who peddle hatred, but it is also a story that requires imaginative use of all our muscles to write about race and class in a deeper way than we have in years. In the coming weeks, we’ll be assigning some new people to politics who can offer different ways of looking at the world. We’ll also ask reporters to write more deeply about the country, race, and other divisions. I really want your help in navigating this story.”

But never fear, Deplorables, because the New York Times is now supposedly going to make an effort to “understand” you, something any responsible news organ might have attempted to do in 2015:

The same newspaper that this week will publish the 1619 Project, the most ambitious examination of the legacy of slavery ever undertaken in [inaudible] newspaper, to try to understand the forces that led to the election of Donald Trump. And that means trying to understand the segment of America that probably does not read us.

Rest assured that the only attempt to “understand” that segment of America will simply be to support the Democrat narrative that each and every one of them is a racist.

This is both hilarious, and sad. Hilarious that the newspaper that sets the coverage tone for the rest of the Democrat-toady fake news media truly cannot imagine that 95% of Americans simply do not focus on a person’s race in their everyday lives like everyone on the New York Times staff obviously does. Sad because this is so awfully representative of the sorry, tattered state of the U.S. news media today.

That is all.

Remembering the Great Inversion Recession of August 14, 2019

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

Hey, remember that day when we were going to have a huge economic recession because of the inverted yield curves? – You remember that – it was, like, Wednesday, right?

For an entire day, our mainstream “news” media focused on pretty much nothing else. The yield curves had inverted and by golly that meant we were about to have a massive recession!!!!!! Why, it was just around the corner!!!! Or maybe – just maybe, all the fake journalists reported with bated breath – we’re already in it!!!!!!  Oh, happy days are here again!

But then, on Thursday, those pesky yield curves de-inverted, Wal-Mart had a fantastic earnings report, and consumer spending – which happens to account for about 2/3rds of the U.S. economy – blasted past projections by the always-wrong “experts”, with growth for July coming in at .7 percent, more than double the estimates of .3 percent.

Suddenly, the Great Inversion Recession of 2019 had come to an end. But what a 24 hours it was! Why, every leftwing journalist in America (which is about 95% of all journalists in America) spent the day in ecstasy. A recession is coming! Every pundit who has spent the last four years claiming every random event is “the beginning of the end for Donald Trump” suddenly felt vindicated.  “At last, I’m right!” they all thought, “It only took me 1,223 tries!”

But no, they were all wrong again. The Trump economy just keeps steaming along, doing all those things that leftist journalists feel are terrible, things like creating full-time, good-paying jobs for every class of American, bringing actual manufacturing back to our economy, creating trillions of dollars of wealth for ordinary Americans who the Democrats all want to be lifetime government dependents, and marginalizing the Chinese economy that every Democrat and leftist journalist in America has spent years hoping would ultimately overtake our own, thus relegating America to the second-tier status it, in their warped minds, deserves.

Sorry. No recession. The Great Inversion Recession of August 14, 2019 turned out to be just another diversion by our fake news media, an excuse to avoid doing any real reporting on matters that reflect badly on their Democrat heroes. Call it the Inversion Diversion.

Think of what a sad existence it must be to spend your every waking hour actively hoping to be able to report bad news for your fellow Americans. When Bill Mahr said on his show the other night that he is actively hoping for a recession between now and next November because he thinks that’s the only way President Donald Trump can be defeated in his bid for re-election, he was just expressing the hopes and desires being quietly held by pretty much everyone on the American left.

So what if a recession puts millions of Americans out of work? Why, Elizabeth Warren will gladly create an array of new multi-trillion dollar programs with money borrowed from our grandchildren that will be designed to ensure that those millions of Americans become lifetime dependents on government largess, and thus, reliable Democrat voters. And all of those babbling heads you see on CNN and MSNBC every night will be thrilled to death with that result.

That was what Wednesday’s feeding frenzy of joyful “the Great Inversion Recession is Coming!” reporting was all about.

But this morning, all of those millions of Americans were still able to get up and go to work, thanks to the Trump economy.

Too bad, so sad for everyone at CNN, MSNBC and the New York Times, but another great day of WINNING for normal Americans.

That is all.
