Democrat Presidential Candidates are Killing Their Party With Honesty

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

Of course, Kamala Harris lied: She’s a Democrat. – Several readers responded to yesterday’s Campaign Update by informing me about media reports indicating Kamala Harris lied during Thursday’s debate when she claimed her elementary school class was the first to be integrated when she went into first grade in 1970.

Jim Hoft at Gatewaypundit.com dug up 1963 yearbook photos from the high school Harris attended in Berkeley, CA (because of course she grew up in Berkeley – where else?). That yearbook shows a fully-integrated class of students. Harris, as a reminder, was born in 1964.

So, she lied. She’s a Democrat, after all, and Democrats lie to get elected. It’s what they do. It’s what they have to do in order to win elections. That is as it has always been, and it is as it always will be. The moment Democrats start telling voters the truth about what they really plan to do, and the impact their plans would really have on our society is the moment their party becomes completely non-viable as a national entity.

In fact, it doesn’t even take Democrats being honest about their policies to see this phenomenon happen – all it takes is for them to begin implementing their real agenda so that the people begin to see with their own eyes what it really is. That happened when Barack Hussein Obama his own self got elected in 2009 and immediately nationalized the nation’s healthcare industry and tried to saddle the country with an economy-destroying cap-and-trade system on carbon.

Even though Democrats continued to shamelessly lie about all of that (“If you want your plan, you can keep your plan”), the blowback against the party was immediate and harsh. Voters who suddenly realized the horrible mistake they’d made in the 2008 elections went out and turned the House of Representatives over to the Republicans in the 2010 mid-terms. The gridlock that created in the legislative process, combined with the GOP nominating the feckless Mitt Romney enabled Obama to recover enough to be re-elected in 2012. But, after Obama switched tactics from legislating to trying to kill the economy by regulating it to death, we had the sea-change 2014 election in which Republicans swept to big majorities in both houses of congress, 33 of the 50 governor’s offices and full control of both houses in over 30 state legislatures.

In six short years, voters seeing the reality of the Obama agenda had relegated the Democrat Party to a marginalized, regional party concentrated in the coastal Northeast, and the West coast. The rest of the national map was a virtual sea of red, interrupted only by small blue pockets concentrated in inner cities.

Remember, Obama had to lie his butt off in order to get elected in 2008. Most people forget this, but he actually ran as a “moderate” against the disastrous John McCain, making no promises to nationalize healthcare or implement a disastrous cap and trade program. The real nature of his far-left agenda only became apparent after he was safely in the Oval Office.

This brings us to the danger in which this current crop of mediocre presidential candidates are placing their party: They are being far, far too honest with the American people about what their agenda really is. This, ironically, is due mostly to the influence that Bernie The Commie Sanders and the childish, attention-grabbing antics of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez have had on the party.

These candidates see all the media spotlight focused on AOC and all the nitwits who follow them on social media squealing for all sorts of radical, outright Marxist and anti-American policy positions, and they become desperate to fall in line like the good little socialists they really are at heart. You must also keep in mind that the vast majority of professional campaign advisors are young people (because as people mature, we tend to want to go do something actually productive with our lives), which today means Millennials. So, regardless of the age of the politician, the advice they are getting tends to skew them to the radical left.

As a result, we saw the spectacle of the two debates this week. Where Democrats in 2009/2010 said “If you like your plan, you can keep your plan,” this week they all said “If you like your plan, we will take it away from you and make you pay the healthcare costs of millions of new illegal aliens.”

And hey, those aliens won’t even be illegal anymore, because each and every one of the 20 people on stage this week also endorsed the nation-destroying idea of decriminalizing border crossings, i.e., open borders. Even more, they’re going to eliminate ICE and de-fund the Border Patrol so that everyone on earth can just swim across the Rio Grande to get their free healthcare.

Oh, and they’re going to raise all of your taxes to pay for multi-trillion dollar schemes like forgiving student loans, the Green New Deal and various other “Climate Change” socialist “plans”, Medicare for all, and on and on and on. The Commie came right out and went full Walter Mondale Thursday night, admitting that he plans to raise taxes on the middle class to pay for all of his Marxist programs. Heads nodded in agreement all over the stage. It’s never a good idea to go full Walter Mondale, people.

These Democrats are so desperate to appeal to their demented, radicalized base voters in order to win the nomination that they are forgetting the single biggest key to ultimately getting elected: Deceiving everyone else about their real intentions.

That particular Genie jumped right up out the bottle this week on national television for all to see. You can bet the Trump campaign is already rolling the video into general election ads as you read this.

For most people, the truth shall set you free. But for Democrats, the light of truth is a death ray.

That is all.

As Absurd as it is, We Must Take This “Green New Deal” Very Seriously

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

Now that we’ve all had a chance to read Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s “Green New Deal” and recover from our hysterical laughter at the utter absurdity of it all…: – Make no mistake about it – this “Green New Deal”, as ridiculous and childishly-written as its talking points document is, represents a deadly serious threat to our nation’s future. Deadly serious.

The nation’s modern history is filled with example after example of the political left being laughed out of the room when rolling out similarly idiotic proposals, only to ultimately see those very same proposals be enacted into law years later, after our education system and fake news media had brainwashed another generation of children and young adults to believe it’s just a peachy idea. The best example is nationalized healthcare: The Pantsuit Princess was the target of harsh ridicule from all parts of society when she rolled out her byzantine plan for a government takeover of 1/7th of the national economy in 1993-94. But 16 short years later, America’s Worst Mistake – Barack Hussein Obama – signed a very similar plan into law.

Twenty years ago, virtually no one believed we’d ever see young people with male genitals and musculature be allowed to steal athletics trophies from young girls, but today that is happening all over the nation, and anyone who speaks up in defense of the young girls is demonized by the news media and Democrat politicians. Just a decade ago, those who predicted that we’d soon be seeing “women’s groups” like NOW remain studiously silent as radical Muslims were allowed by state and local governments to practice Sharia Law and female genital mutilation were ridiculed as being alarmist and “racist”. But today that is happening in many parts of the country with the full approval and sanction of the Democrat Party and these “women’s groups”.

Just a handful of years ago, anyone who predicted that a Democrat Speaker of the House would refuse to hold a vote on a pro-Israel congressional resolution for fear of offending the large and growing anti-Semitic segment of her caucus would have been laughed out of the room. But that is happening right now, in real time.

So if you think the Democrats aren’t deadly serious about this “Green New Deal,” you should back up and think again. An old, 43-year veteran of congress like Ed Markey didn’t sign on as AOC’s Straw Man (“if I only had a brain”) for her walk down the fake environmental Yellow Brick Road just for fun.

Ed Markey doesn’t even know what fun is anymore. He’s nearing the end of his time on this earth, and he has worked to turn the United States into a socialist/fascist state for his entire life.  If you think he is not serious about seizing your land and assets and printing 40 Trillion dollars in order to devalue our currency and turn America into just another third-world country, then you haven’t been paying attention to his career to date, and you must have also slept through the Obama years.

Yes, the “Green New Deal” is utterly, completely absurd, an unworkable fantasy concocted by demented and childish minds. Yes, as I pointed out last night, the plan rips the mask off of the true fascist nature of the global Green movement, but that global Climate Scam has made steady inroads into every aspect of our daily lives for 50 years now. Did you think they were going to just stop at some point?

We all need to remember that those demented and childish – and yes, evil in many cases – minds really believe their own bullsh*t.  These are minds that have been completely brainwashed into believing that the abject horse manure they’re slinging out into the public domain this week is going to … wait for it… save the world!  Literally.

So yes, by all means, laugh at these nitwits today and bathe them in the ridicule they have so richly earned. But also take them very seriously and remember that they – not you – own our nation’s education system and news media. No matter how crazy you know their ideas to be, remember that they will continue to deploy every asset at their disposal to brainwash the current and every succeeding generation of American school children into believing all of this nonsense until they reach that critical mass, that point in time when they will be able to force it all into official government policy.

In 1995, a very wise man told me that “all the pinks and reds have gone green.” Yesterday, all those pinks and reds shed their green facade for all to see. In doing so, they reveal that they, like Hillary Clinton in 1993, think they have already reached that critical mass and are convinced they can now reveal their true nature without paying a political price.

Laughing at them and ridiculing them is not enough: We must stop being timid and become bold in opposing them. Be bold, for the sake of your children and grandchildren.

That is all.

ObamaCare’s On-Again Off-Again Constitutionality Is Off-Again, For Now

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Huh. Guess congress did something about ObamaCare after all. –  The stain on our nation’s healthcare system that is ObamaCare was declared unconstitutional by a federal judge in Texas on Friday, and you’ll never guess why.

Remember last year, when we were all complaining that the Republican congress had failed to do anything effective to get rid of the atrocity? Remember when John McCain proudly cast the deciding vote in the dead of night, sneering in his belief that he had, in his final major act as a senator, saddled the nation with this economy killing nightmare into perpetuity?

Yeah, it turns out that McCain and everyone else might have been wrong. Judge Reed O’Connor – who everyone in our fake news media will be labeling as a “conservative judge” or a “right-wing judge” today, even though they never label any Obama appointee properly as a “Marxist judge” or “Alynskyite judge” – ruled that Obamacare was rendered unconstitutional last year when congress repealed the individual mandate tax contained within it.

This of course is the “tax” that Chief Justice John Roberts ruled really was a tax – even though Obama and every other Democrat on earth denied it was a tax, and the law itself did not call it a tax – when he twisted himself into tight little pretzels of illogic in declaring the law to be “constitutional” back in 2012. Yeah, that “tax”.

Judge O’Connor, in a suit brought by Texas and 19 other states, ruled on Friday that this “tax”  – which penalized anyone who didn’t purchase healthcare ‘insurance’ under Obamacare in order to subsidize the entire house of cards – was in fact the foundation of the entire house of cards. The states had argued that the individual mandate was “non-severable” from the remainder of the ObamaCare law, and the judge agreed.

President Trump got all excited when he heard of the decision and issued the following premature tweet:

The problem is that Judge O’Connor’s decision will be immediately appealed by the 14 states who argued in favor of ObamaCare, and thus will not become effective anytime soon, if it ever does. Justice Roberts, after all, has already demonstrated he is willing to go to any lengths of illogic to uphold the atrocity, and there are still 4 leftist clods on the court who will do or say anything to promote their own personal social views.

Still, it was fun to wake up this morning to the news that John McCain’s final sneering middle finger act to the rest of us has at least temporarily been invalidated.

It’s been a great week for goodbyes. – Man, getting rid of Jeff Flake and The Weekly Standard all in one week feels like Christmas come early! Toss Claire McCaskill into the mix, and it’s time to strike up “Joy to the World”.

Yes, friends, the execrable cretin Bill Kristol announced late Friday that the formerly conservative but now rankly liberal #NeverTrump publication, The Weekly Standard, would go out of business after it publishes its final issue on Monday. To that, I only have this to say:

Ok, I have one more thing to say. The sad part of this is that, while Kristol and fellow editor Stephen Hayes will be just fine in this deal, no doubt getting a massive severance deal and retaining their contributor agreements with various cable networks (Kristol has long been one of CNN’s favorite pet fake conservatives), the rest of the magazine’s staff is going to get royally screwed right before Christmas.

Still, the shutting of this rag is no loss to conservatism, no loss to the GOP and no loss to the country. It just is.

Wait, what? Huh? Come again? – Liberals are having such a hard damn time labeling themselves these days that it’s hard to keep up.  Take yesterday as examples:

First, Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth “Little Mouth Always Running” Warren gave a speech on Friday in which she outright declared that “I am not a person of color.” Holy crap. Wasn’t it just a couple of months ago that this congenitally dishonest hack was taking DNA tests, declaring that, because one of them found that she was 1/1024th (maybe) “native American” that she WAS a “person of color?”

Make up your mind, lady.

As if that’s not confusing enough, then you have some guy named Jonathan Rauch, who is apparently himself a gay man, writing a piece at the ultra-liberal rag The Atlantic declaring that “it’s time to take the ‘LGBT’ out of ‘LGBTQ'”.  I swear I do not make this stuff up. Here is a part of Rauch’s reasoning, which I must directly quote in order to not be personally accused of being a bigot:

“As activists and theorists sought to cover every base, they recognized asexuality and intersexuality and various other identities by coining LGBTQIAA+, LGBTTIQQ2SA, and other telescoping designations. Lately LGBTQ seems to have become the norm, on the assumption that Q, for queer, can stand in for all the rest.”

and this…

“If you like, you can think of it as short for queer. Or, if you don’t like, just Q. Give it any etymology you wish. Regardless, the term would be understood to encompass sexual minorities of all stripes. When we speak of ourselves as individuals, we would use gay or lesbian or transgender or whatever applies. When we need a blanket term, we would simply call ourselves Q. As in: the Q population and Q equalityQ is simple and inclusive, and carries minimal baggage. When we speak of Q equality, we are saying that discrimination against sexual minorities—or for that matter sexual majorities—is not the American way.”

That’s right: After decades of gay rights activists telling the world that the use of the word “queer” is in fact a bigoted slur (which it is), we now have a prominent gay “journalist” advocating that everyone go back to using the letter “Q” – which he overtly admits stands for the word “queer” – to refer to anyone in the gay community.

I can’t even.

That is all.

Democrats Don’t Need the Mob Anymore: Democrats ARE the Mob

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Tired of all this Winning yet? – New jobless claims fell by another 10,000 last week, as the economy approaches full employment.  New claims totaled 210,000 according to the Labor Department, the lowest level recorded in the U.S. since 1969.  This #Winning never, never, never, ever gets old.

Democrats in action. – Meanwhile, the social justice warriors at Kennesaw Mountain College in Georgia have banned the use of pretty much all the pronouns in the Webster’s Dictionary.  To replace them, the College introduced seven different lists of “gender-neutral” pronouns that students must use when addressing others.  The problem is, it is up to each individual to choose which of the 7 pronoun categories he or she…oops, there is no he or she anymore at KMC…’Ze’ or ‘Ve’ prefers.

The guide further hilariously notes that students “may change their pronouns without changing their name, appearance, or gender identity,” and suggests that preferred pronouns be re-confirmed regularly during “check-ins at meetings or in class.”  Folks, I was in an astronomy class at The University of Texas that had 120 students in it.  A pronoun “check-in” at the start of class would have consumed half of the class time.

“It can be tough to remember pronouns at first,” the guide helpfully points out.  True, but it’s probably easier than wasting time learning stuff like algebra, history and actual English.

More Democrats in action. – In Chicago, Democrat efforts to steal even more elections via mass voter fraud took another step forward with the issuance of what the sanctuary city’s leaders call the “CityID” card.  Matt Dietrich, spokesman for the Illinois State Board of Elections, said that the card “would be a legal form of ID for the board of elections to accept” when any resident attempts to register to vote.

But hey, don’t worry, Dietrich went on, “When you go to register to vote, you do check a box that attests to your citizenship.”  He also assured everyone that the same city officials who are currently actively violating  federal immigration law by enforcing the city’s “sanctuary” status will be policing the situation to make sure that people who knowingly entered the U.S. in violation of  our country’s immigration law don’t lie.  In 1960, John F. Kennedy needed Sam Giancana and the Chicago mob to steal Illinois.  Today, the Democrat Party is the mob, so no help necessary.

Still More Democrats in action. – Retiring Utah Senator Orrin Hatch, speaking at a meeting of the American Enterprise Institute, called the supporters of the Obamacare legislation in 2009-10 “the stupidest, dumbass people I’ve ever met.”  Well, yes.  They’re all Democrats.  Great to see the Senator finally getting to air his unfiltered thoughts during his waning days in office.

Speaking of Democrats in action, White House spokesman Sarah Huckabee Sanders told the assembled fake news reporters on Thursday that the Justice Department is conducting a review of the actions by Oakland Mayor Libby Schaff, who warned illegal immigrants in her city last Friday to head for the hills because ICE was about to conduct a roundup operation in the area.  This was clearly obstruction of justice, but Mayor Schaff, concerned about the prospect of spending time in the federal pokey, now claims she wasn’t advising anyone to take evasive action, oh no.  She just wanted them all to spend time studying and learning their rights while they sat meekly in their living rooms awaiting the arrival of ICE agents.  It’s an obvious lie – and if she says it to FBI agents, that’s also supposed to be a crime – but that’s what Democrats do.  It’s all they got.

As we all know, Hollywood is pretty much 100% infested with Democrats who just love to give themselves awards for all the award-worthy work they do in making the films they turn out, which, with very rare exceptions, range from horrifically awful to merely mediocre.  The biggest of the 3 dozen or so awards ceremonies, the Oscars, takes place this Sunday, and attendees always find a nice big gift bag sitting on their seat when they arrive.

In tribute to the fact that Hollywood has over the last 5 months been starkly revealed to be a seething cesspit of sexual abuse and depravity, Yahoo News reports that this year’s gift bags will contain ” a key-ring sized pepper spray, a gel pepper spray, two personal body alarms and a kit to test whether your drink has been drugged.”  If news reports are accurate, every woman and boy under the age of 18 will need to use every one of those items to protect them from registered Democrats before the night is over.

Just another day in Democrats are the mob America.

That is all.

Yes, CNN, Trump Is Reversing Obama’s “Legacy”. That’s Why He Won.

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

  • So, the members of the Motion Picture Academy, a large portion of whom are no doubt sexual abusers of one form or another themselves, voted to kick Harvey Weinstein out of the membership of their illustrious group.  Boy, that’ll show him.
  • Late night talk show host and un-funny comic Jimmy Kimmel, fresh off of being proclaimed to be “America’s moral conscience” by some idiot writing for CNN, told a CNN fake journalist on Friday that “I am not America’s moral conscience.”  Can somebody please let me know when this particular debate is over?  Thanks.
  • If you’re thinking the Clinton family is really going to return any of that Weinstein hush money they received over the last 20 years, watch the video at this link of Chelsea Clinton fleeing to the safety of her car to avoid answering any questions about it on Saturday.  Not one thin dime of that quarter million that went into the Clinton Crime Family Fake Foundation will go anywhere else.  Forget about it.
  • Don’t look now – ok, go ahead and look – but the fake journalists who infest CNN are waking up to the fact that President Donald Trump (I still never get tired of typing that) is – gasp! – focusing his efforts on reversing the anti-American legacy of Barack Obama.  Why, the nerve!
  • Writing on CNN’s website on Friday, that keeper of the Obama flame Chris Cilizza says that “The key to understanding Trump’s motivations here are entirely contained in the ACA’s shorthand nickname: Obamacare. It’s named after the man — former President Barack Obama (duh) — who shepherded it into existence. And that’s exactly why Trump wants to get rid of it.”  Yes, to the nitwits who pretend to be reporters and opinionists at Obama Central, Trump’s dismantling of an utterly failed government takeover of 1/6th of the nation’s economy has literally nothing to do with the undeniable fact that it is horrible policy that has taken many millions of Americans completely out of the health insurance system, and is 100% because Trump just doesn’t like Obama.
  • This is what CNN calls “insightful analysis.”  My goodness.
  • Cilizza cannot bring himself to acknowledge the truth about Trump’s order to rescind Obama’s executive order that gave hundreds of millions in subsidies each year to insurance companies, which is that Obama’s order was patently unconstitutional.  The Constitution clearly requires that all federal spending must be authorized by congress, and congress never authorized those payments.  The fact is that Trump’s order is simply one piece of his ongoing campaign to return this country to the rule of law, a concept that was studiously ignored during Obama’s 8 years in office.
  • So yes, the Trump presidency has thus far been largely focused on reversing the legacy of lawlessness that preceded it.  this used to be known as responsible governance.
  • And what a success this effort to erase the Obama legacy from our midst has been thus far.  With the reversal of literally thousands of terrible, economy-killing regulations and dozens of patently illegal executive orders, Trump’s administration has demonstrated that the Obama “legacy” was almost entirely built on a foundation of matchsticks that would go up in flames with the election of any president who actually cares about the country.
  • While the fake news media has done its best to ignore it, President Trump’s reversals of Obama’s failed legacy have also extended to the War on Terror, and the destruction of ISIS in Syria and Iraq, which is largely complete.  Literally thousands of ISIS fighters in Syria and Iraq have surrendered over the past few weeks with barely a mention on the nightly newscasts, and ISIS is on the verge of defeat in the key strongholds of Raqqa and Mayadeen, leaving Boukamal as the terror group’s lone remaining harbor.
  • Thus, just 9 months into his presidency, Trump’s military leaders have, working with Syria and others, almost wiped out the terrorist group that Obama fooled around with and allowed to grow throughout his second term in office.  Chris Cilizza is no doubt horrified by this as well.
  • But out here in Flyover Country, us Normals are pretty happy to see ISIS being wiped out, the stock market setting records almost every day, the economy booming, our manufacturing industries investing tens of billions of dollars in new plants and equipment, and even about having a President who is willing to refer to Christmas as “Christmas.”
  • Chris Cilizza and the rest of the Obama-worshippers at CNN will never understand it, but all of this is exactly why Donald Trump is our President today.

Just another day in fake news America.

That is all.

The Best Solution To The Weinstein Problem? CalExit!

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

  • Democrats everywhere gave her an “A” for effort. – After President Trump issued an executive order that would enable small businesses and individuals to form health insurance associations across state lines and thus demand lower premiums for insurance policies, San Fran Nan Pelosi told reporters that “I don’t know what he’s putting out today, but I do know it’s a sabotage” of Obamacare.  Hey, give her a break:  She didn’t know what was in Obamacare, either, and still doesn’t.  At least Pelosi was able to remember and recite the day’s Democrat/fake media code word – which every Democrat and fake reporters used all day long – related to the President’s executive order, which of course was “sabotage.”  She had no idea why she was using it, but at least she managed to use it.
  • How about “Hobgoblin”?  No?  Ok, what about “Rotten tomato”?  Wait, that’s two words… – Today, the President will very likely terminate U.S. sponsorship of the Obama/Kerry idiotic deal with Iran, and we can only speculate on what the Democrat/media code word will be related to this action.  “Reckless”, perhaps?  “Irresponsible”?  No, that’s too many syllables, Pelosi could never remember it.  “Dark”?  No, they only use that when he’s talking about putting America first.  Hmmmmmm…I’m going with “reckless.”  Let’s sit back and see what happens.
  • Meanwhile, in Harvey Weinstein world… – Stuff got real for Amazon grand poobah Jeff Bezos yesterday afternoon, as director/actor/producer Rose McGowan turned her one-woman war on Hollywood in an unexpected direction.  While she didn’t accuse Bezos himself of any bad sexual behavior, she went off on the head of Amazon’s movie studio with a vengeance, accusing him of covering for Weinstein after she had informed him that Weinstein had raped her.  She ended her tweetstorm by imploring Bezos to “Be the change you want to see in the world.  Stand with the truth.”
  • Interestingly, while every other major media outlet on the face of the earth seems to have run a story on the McGowan/Bezos dustup, the Washington Post, which Bezos owns, apparently did not find this story newsworthy.  Go figure.
  • In response not to McGowan’s accusations, but to a separate accusation made by producer Isa Hackett Dick, Amazon did see fit to suspend the studio chief in question, some guy named Roy Price.  My goodness, what a cesspit of depravity Hollywood is turning out to be, and we haven’t even gotten to the pedophiles.  Yet.
  • CalExit is the solution! – This whole Weinstein deal ought to remind every thinking American out in the 98% of the country that lies outside of the major media centers that there is an organized, dedicated effort to have California secede from the United States, most commonly referred to as “CalExit”.  And lo and behold, the Sacramento Bee carried a story about this effort yesterday, in which backers of this secession effort say they believe they have an easier path to taking their state out of the union than the Catalonians have to separate their region from Spain.
  • While that’s not exactly a low bar, it gives the organizers hope:  “There are definitely similarities in the fiscal situation – we both give more than we get back,” said Dave Marin, director of research and policy for the California Freedom Coalition. “But there’s more flexibility in the U.S. Constitution for secession than there is in the Spanish one. California has more tools available to it.”  Honestly, it should give the rest of us a little hope as well that maybe, sometime in the near future, the cesspit of depravity that is Harvey Weinstein World will reside in a whole separate country.  Seems like a very reasonable solution, doesn’t it?
  • Incidentally, about that whole “we both give more than we get back” line of BS spouted by Mr. Marin:  I’m thinking this guy hasn’t considered what his state’s life would be like without all that water coming into LA from the Colorado River Basin.  And I’m thinking he hasn’t given a lot of thought to what it might cost his new country to recruit and maintain its own military forces, because if you think us “Normals” out here in flyover country are just going to smile and say “great!” when Californians come begging for water and our armed forces to protect them when things get real, you don’t really know us Normals, and you really don’t want to find out the answer to those questions the hard way.
  • But hey, go for it, Mr. Marin.  All I want to know about your effort really and truly is, how can I help make it happen?

Just another day in I have found the solution to the whole Weinstein problem America.

That is all.

Random Sunday Thoughts: Is Rand Paul Smart Enough To Become a Hero?

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

  • Senator Rand Paul has a real opportunity this week to turn himself into a real, true presidential contender in either 2020, should President Trump not run for re-election, or in 2024.  He can do that by becoming the deciding vote to pass the Graham/Cassidy Obamacare reform bill in the U.S. Senate.  Yes, he would need either Lisa Murkowski or Susan Collins to also act like real Republicans and support the bill, but Murkowski definitely seems to be get-able in that regard.
  • Think about it:  By casting that single vote, Rand Paul could become a hero to President Trump’s voter base – which according to recent polls makes up a strong majority of the GOP’s total voter base – a hero to everyone who hates the execrable jerk John McCain – which also makes up a majority of the GOP total voter base – and a hero to the millions of Americans who have seen their ability to access real healthcare insurance decimated by Obamacare.  Yes, it would go against the Senator’s precious libertarian principles, but at some point, if he truly wants to be president – as he seemed to sort of want to during the 2016 campaign – actually getting stuff done is going to have to supersede those principles.
  • This week could be a real, true Rand Paul moment.  Is he smart enough to realize it, and take advantage of it?  Sadly, the smart money is probably on ‘no.’
  • How stupid are NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell and many NFL owners?  They are so damn stupid that, when President Trump went off on their ridiculous failure to discipline players who are killing their product’s TV ratings (down 20% in the last two seasons) that they actually responded by defending those players.  That, folks, take stupid to previously unknown heights.
  • The NFL seems to have lost sight of who makes up most of its audience.  The preponderance of the NFL’s audience is made up of blue-collar working class Americans, the overwhelming mass of whom think it is really important to honor this country’s flag by standing during the national anthem.  It is not a coincidence that the NFL has seen its TV ratings go into free-fall since Collin Kaepernick started his “look at me” act on the sidelines, and was able to continue to do so without consequence.
  • Some apologists for these player like to argue that the NFL’s ratings are down because their games are boring.  Hell, NFL games have been boring people stiff for a quarter of a century now, but the ratings didn’t start collapsing until the National Anthem protests started.  If the NFL brass – except for Jerry Jones, who has made it clear to his Dallas Cowboys that they will stand for the Anthem or be benched – wants to pretend its problem has nothing to do with the protests, then no one will be able to halt the killing of the League’s Golden Goose.
  • All that having been said, I have no doubt at all that all these NFL social justice warriors who today kneel on the sidelines while making millions of dollars a year will be far happier in the future, when their non-football skill sets allow them to earn $12 per hour putting boxes onto trucks at the loading docks behind the local Wal Mart.  So you go, guys!  Power to the people!!!!!!
  • I just can’t wait to see how many NBA players start their own kneeling acts during the playing of the National Anthems before their games.  That’s going to be awesome, and make the NFL’s SJWs look like child’s play by comparison.  Given that I haven’t watched a full NBA game since about 1988, the death of that sport will make no difference in my life anyway.
  • And the virus has even spread into major league baseball, as Bruce Maxwell, a nitwit mediocrity for the also-ran Oakland A’s decided he needed some attention on Saturday, too.  This one kind of bothers me, since I’ve just begun to watch MLB games again this season, but as long as it doesn’t spread to the Texas Rangers or Los Angeles Dodgers, I’ll be cool.
  • Hey, I’m old enough to remember when all SJWs went absolutely berserk and demanded punishing a player named Tim Tebow, who kneeled in prayer to God before NFL games.  I also remember how the same sports and establishment fake news media that is today supporting the anti-flag kneelers ridiculed Tebow for expressing his beliefs in that way.  Funny how that works.

Just another day in Social Justice Warrior America.

Jimmy Kimmel: The Left’s Perfect Spokesman

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

  • Jimmy Kimmel is the perfect spokesman for the American Left.  He personifies everything the Left has become over the last 25 years, since the advent of Clintonian/Alinsky dominance of the Democrat Party:  Entitled, snarky, mean, haughty, and above all else, studiously ignorant.
  • The tactics he deploys from his late night pulpit are the tactics Clintonian Democrats have deployed from their political pulpits for a quarter of a century.  You begin with a set of talking points prepared by someone else, but which you memorize and recite as if they were gospel handed down from God himself.  In Kimmel’s case, the talking points were handed down by Chuck Schumer, more a minion of Satan than a god, but hey, the principle is the same.
  • Kimmel’s talking points are pretty simple:  Obama, good.  Obamacare, good.  Republicans, bad.  Anything Republicans want to to with Obamacare, bad.  That’s the sum total of what Kimmel “knows” about the debate over what to do about the collapsing Obamacare system, which has quintupled medical premiums in many areas and thrown millions of Americans off of healthcare insurance entirely.  Kimmel sees none of this, because none of this is in the talking points he’s been fed by Schumer.  Kimmel is abjectly ignorant, and he clings to his ignorance like Linus clings to his security blanket.
  • Every set of leftist talking points comes with the  standard set of leftist tactics, and those tactics always – ALWAYS – follow the same exact progression:  First you start with a sob story, and to his credit, Kimmel and his beautiful little son have a great, very real sob story to relate.  Second comes the name calling, and boy is Kimmel, a veteran comic, good at the name calling.  Next comes the threats, and Kimmel is as good with the threats as he is at the name calling.  Finally, when the left still hasn’t gotten everything it wants, comes the violence, as we have seen the past few years with Antifa and Black Lives Matter, the armed and violent wing of the Democrat Party.  Kimmel hasn’t gotten around to the violence part yet, but we can be sure he will next time he runs into Brian Kilmeade.
  • As mentioned above, the sob story is real:  Kimmel does have a precious little boy who has a heart condition which has already required one surgery and will, according to Kimmel, require two more.  This is awful, and everyone should be praying for the child’s full recovery.  Luckily for the child, he is the son of a fabulously wealthy member of the top 1% of the 1%, so he will receive the finest healthcare available in America, which is also the finest available in the world.  Kimmel wants his viewers to believe that the only reason his son will receive such fine healthcare is thanks to the demi-god Obama and Obamacare, which of course is an outright lie.  But lying is what leftwingers like Kimmel do.
  • Anyone who argues with Kimmel on this subject and points out his lies immediately becomes the target of nationally-televised name-calling.  If you disagree with Kimmel, suddenly you are evil, a sexist, a racist, and any other -ist he can attach to what his script-writers consider these days to be a “joke”.   One Louisiana Congressman even became an “inbred” in Kimmel’s Thursday rampage, er, ‘monologue’.  It’s all very predictable, yet very sad coming as it does from a comic who at one time was actually a very funny guy who understood what his show was supposed to be about.
  • Then come the threats.  For leftist politicians, the threats come in the form of taxes, penalties or imprisonment on whatever behaviors they don’t approve of but can’t solve through name-calling.  For Jimmy Kimmel, the threats come in the old-fashioned form of threatening to beat someone up when they call out his rank hypocrisy and lying on their own television program.  Thus, his threat to physically assault Fox & Friends host Brian Kilmeade next time he runs into him.
  • The final step for any good leftist is, of course, outright violence whenever they can’t get their way through the peaceful, constitutional process.  Kimmel hasn’t gotten there yet – perhaps only because he hasn’t run into Kilmeade – but can anyone doubt that, should the Republicans cobble together 50 votes in the senate to pass the Graham/Cassidy bill, he will use his late night pulpit to urge his viewers to take that route?  Given his down-the-line mindlessly leftist behavior to this point, it seems almost inevitable.
  • Unlike the detestable Stephen Colbert, who actually understands a lot about politics and just chooses consciously to act the idiot in order to attract an audience, Kimmel is not someone to be condemned, but pitied.  Through a highly emotional life experience, he has allowed himself to fall out of the only role he really knows anything about, and be co-opted by evil leftwingers like Chuck Schumer to act as their stooge.  It’s like the modern-day Wizard of Oz – no need to worry about the image you see projected on your screen, it’s the man behind the curtain who is the real villain.

Just another day in evil leftists America.

That is all.

I’m Much Too Young To Feel This Damn Old

Here are some things I’m old enough to remember:

  • I’m old enough to remember when, three weeks ago, the Democrats plagiarized PapaJohn’s Pizza with a new slogan promising they were going to focus on “Better Jobs, Better Wages”, instead of dividing America.

  • I’m old enough to remember 7 days ago when Senator From The News Media John McCain lambasted President Trump for his aggressive posture towards the Crazy Little Fat Guy in North Korea, saying it wouldn’t work.
  • I’m old enough to remember all the way back to January, when Charlottesville Mayor Mike Signor declared his city to be the “Capital of the ‘Resistance’ “.
  • I’m old enough to remember when it was the communists in the Soviet Union and radical muslims in Afghanistan who were going about toppling statues and trying to erase history, rather than the Democrats here in the U.S.
  • I’m old enough to remember when the global temperature records kept by NOAA hadn’t been falsified for political purposes.
  • I’m old enough to remember when radicals on the Berkeley campus were peacefully demonstrating in favor of free speech, not violently rioting to restrict it.
  • I’m old enough to remember when senators of both parties rallied around the president of the United States whenever some nutjob dictator threatened to bomb our homeland, and when those who didn’t do so were criticized rather than praised by the news media.
  • Speaking of the news media, I’m old enough to remember when it was only partially fake.
  • I’m old enough to remember when Barack Obama said “We can’t drill our way to lower gasoline prices.”  Oops.
  • I’m old enough to remember when The National Review was a conservative journal, and The Weekly Standard wasn’t edited by Hillary Clinton shills like Stephen Hayes and Bill Kristol.

  • I’m old enough to remember when the panels on Fox News’s “Special Report” were balanced, unlike the utter disgrace they aired Monday evening.
  • I’m old enough to remember when the Republican Party actually stood for something.

  • Hell, I’m so old I remember 1995, when the GOP had real leadership in both houses of congress.
  • I’m old enough to remember when Hollywood turned out watchable movies – you know, the kind with plots and acting and stuff like that.
  • I’m old enough to remember when I wasn’t a fanatic about Dallas Cowboys Football.  Ok, that’s a lie – I’ve always been a fanatic about Dallas Cowboys Football.
  • I’m old enough to remember when Nancy Pelosi wasn’t a doddering, babbling fool.  Ok, that’s a lie, too.
  • I’m old enough to remember when Maxine Waters lived in her own congressional district.
  • I’m old enough to remember when the Federal Bureau of Investigation was a functioning, respected law enforcement agency, i.e., the pre-James Comey years.
  • I’m old enough to remember when Obamacare didn’t exist and most Americans really did have affordable healthcare insurance.
  • I’m old enough to remember those seven years when every Republican in Washington (except for Sen. Susan Collins, who is really a Democrat) promised they were going to repeal Obamacare.
  • I’m old enough to remember when we all thought John McCain was a genuine American hero.  No really, virtually all of us did.  Silly us.
  • Finally, I’m old enough to remember when both major political parties respected the constitution, the American flag, and the national anthem.  Sadly, the Democrats no longer respect any of those things, and it’s hard to be sure whether many Republicans do anymore.

I’m much too young to feel this damn old.

 

That is all.
