Biden, Bernie, Buttigieg and Beto: The Democrat Killer Bs Lineup is Complete

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

Hey, Biden’s announcing today – we need some fake polls! – And just like clockwork, Morning Consult produces one! It’s almost like it was pre-planned, designed by fake-polling Democrat activists to coincide with Creepy Uncle Joe’s announcement, right? But that couldn’t be the case, could it?

Well, sure it could. And it was. This stuff happens every day in Democrat/media/pollster world. Here’s the graphic that accompanies Morning Consult’s “online poll” – the word “online” means “utterly without any validity whatsoever” – released overnight:

Now, if you believe any of that, I want some of what you’re drinking, ‘cuz it must be real gooood.

Start with the Trump overall support number of 34% among “registered voters.” First, it’s an online poll – how in the world would Morning Consult know if respondents are even real people and not fake accounts created by those nefarious Russians, much less whether anyone who responds happens to be properly registered to vote?

But back to the 34%: President Donald Trump has a 49% public approval rating in the latest Rasmussen survey, which has been the most accurate polling operation in the country over the last two election cycles. He’s at 45% in the HarrisX survey, and even in the useless RealClearPolitics average of polls – which mysteriously still insists on including polls from news outlets and the hysterically fake Reuters – has him at 43.4%.

Does anyone really believe that, if all these “likely voters” surveyed by Rasmussen (one of a handful that bothers to structure its sample on those most likely to actually vote) go to the polls, almost 1/3rd of them would abandon the sitting President who has delivered the strongest economy in modern times to vote for Joe Freakin’ Biden? Please.

But enough about fake polls.

Biden’s long-anticipated and long-delayed entrance into the race today (which he announced by posting a carefully-constructed video on Twitter so he couldn’t screw anything up) completes the Democrat field for all intents and purposes. Other no-accounts like New York City Governor Bill DeBlasio might still jump in, but hey, the field is already chock full of communists, so he’d be wasting his time. The reality is that Biden is the last candidate who matters, which is part of the reason why he’s waited so long to formally announce.

Biden now joins the party’s other three B-listers (there apparently are no A-listers available), the pasty-faced lineup of white guys who are giving the Party’s social justice warrior-filled voter base heartburn: Bernie, Buttigieg and Beto, i.e., The Commie, Mayor Pete and Irish Bob O’Rourke.

Yes, the Killer Bs have come back to life in this race, and, according Morning Consult, they are taking almost all of the SJW air out of the identity politics room, combining for 69% support. That total goes as low as 59% if you want to believe Monmouth’s poll, or as high as 70% if you choose to look at Emerson. Regardless, the Killer Bs aren’t leaving a lot of room for the women, fake Indians and minority candidates to break through the white guy wall.

But don’t worry, all you SJWs, this will not last for long. Joe Biden might as well brand his campaign “Joe!” because he’s just “Jeb!” all over again, a completely out-of-place, unexciting dinosaur who will spend a ton of money and be out of the race shortly after the New Hampshire primary, if not before.

The most fascinating part of Biden’s campaign will be watching to see how he deals with all the attacks that are coming his way from the SJW crowd – like his 40 year-old statement that gay people in key federal employee roles are a security risk because they’re susceptible to blackmail – and the looming scandal over the billion-dollar sweetheart deal with the Ukraine that he set up for his son’s firm to profit from. Combine those things with his half-century history of inappropriate touching of women and children, and he presents an awful lot of problems for the fake news media to cover up.

The reality for Biden is that today is most likely the best polling day he will have in this race, and it’s all downhill from here.

Irish Bob O’Rourke is probably on a similar trajectory at this point. His polling numbers spiked up above 10% for a few weeks after he finally announced, but are now mired in the mid-single digits and not showing any positive signs. He has not only lost his “rising star” media-fed mojo to Mayor Pete, but he’s also running a completely meaningless, substance-devoid campaign.

Irish Bob’s campaign is like an episode of Seinfeld: A show about nothing starring a cynical clown who makes a living telling fake stories to small audiences. His entire basis for running was the foundation of support he’d receive from a fawning media. But he waited too long to announce, and the fickle media turned its eye to Mayor Pete. It’s hard to see how Irish Bob stages a breakthrough at this point in such a crowded field.

Mayor Pete and The Commie are the Killer Bs with a real future in this race: The Commie because he’s a true, committed commie and Mayor Pete because he’s the media’s current prom date and can easily run just slightly to the right of The Commie and pretend to be a mere socialist. Mayor Pete’s other advantage is that, being gay, he ticks off one of the major SJW boxes that sort of dims his otherwise-glaring white-maleness.

I still think that Andrew Yang will make some noise in this race, but not until the televised debates begin this summer. He’s a very non-conventional thinker in a Marxist lunatic sort of way, and he will really stand out in that format. And we should also expect Spartacus Booker to have a little boomlet at some point, because he is also really adept at attracting media attention. Julian Castro might also jump up the polling ladder at some point, because sooner or later the creeps in the fake news media are going to feel very guilty about ignoring the only real Hispanic candidate in the race.

But the field is set and the Democrats’ Star Wars bar scene cast is now complete. It’s off to the races, and oh, what a frightening display it’s all going to be.

That is all.

Oops, Cher Did it Again!

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

This is becoming a habit. – Barely a week after straying off the social justice warrior reservation with an errant tweet, our favorite leftist has-been entertainer from the 1960s, Cher, got herself into a bit of a pickle on Twitter once again on Tuesday. After someone in her entourage apparently forgot to lock up the LSD pantry, Cher went on the attack, but her target wasn’t President Donald Trump – instead, she went after The Commie and his desire to give the Boston Bombers and other terrorists and felons their voting rights back:

Naturally, this brief burst of common sense got Cher into hot water with Twitter’s SJW-based outrage mob, who went after the mostly-plastic entertainer like flies on a steaming pile of cow dung. Cher’s response was to delete her offending tweet, because of course it was, but what she did next was absolutely priceless, and sadly typical of behavior in the SJW crowd she inhabits.

In order to atone for her horrible transgression against leftist dogma, Cher issued the following incoherent message:

There’s that word “PPL” again. What is a “PPL”??? And what does this message from Cher even mean, other than that it pushes several buttons that make the typical mindless enraged Democrat voter feel all warm and fuzzy inside. You know, buttons like “RACIST WHITE PPL” and “STARBUCKS” and of course, “F-N”. Also, the little clapping hands emojies are worth 10 points apiece in mindless enraged Democrat voter land.

So, Cher was able to get her leftist idiot card back very quickly, and we should all be very happy about that since the thought of actually being on the same side of an issue as this raging nitwit was utterly horrifying.

But that all leads to this question: What in the hell brought this all about? Well, here’s a video of The Commie advocating for the restoration of voting rights for our society’s most heinous criminals, while they are still in prison…I swear I do not make this stuff up:

Let’s be honest here: The Commie knows where the most reliable Democrat votes reside – well, other than in cemeteries, of course – which is in our nation’s prisons, and he’s going after them. Sanders is 77 years-old and this is his last shot at destroying our country, so he doesn’t want to leave any potential despicable stone unturned. This is really not complicated at all.

Let’s also understand that, according to this week’s Granite State Poll, The Commie is far and away the Democrat Party front-runner in the state of New Hampshire, where that CNN townhall was staged. In the nation’s first primary state, this is a very popular guy among the demented Democrat voter base, coming in ahead of Creepy Uncle Joe by a 30% to 18% margin.

Who else is very popular in New Hampshire? Why, Pete Buttigieg (15% in the poll), who you saw in that video clip also endorsing restoration of criminals’ voting rights, once they have served their prison time. But hey, Mayor Pete is just 39, so he, unlike the Commie, can be more patient in his own efforts to destroy the country. So he’s playing the “long game” when it comes to securing votes from the lowest scum in our society.

Kamala Harris, who sits way back in 5th place in that Granite State poll, also weighed in in favor of wanting to mine the nation’s convicted felon population for votes. Irish Bob O’Rourke, who comes in a pathetic 7th place in the poll with just 3% support, wasn’t there. Presumably he was too busy riding skate boards or waving his arms while shouting at some crowd of poor saps in some roadside cafe in South Carolina. What a disjointed, meaningless disaster his campaign is turning out to be.

So, here’s the thing about Cher: Granted, she’s a raging nitwit; granted, she is easy to make fun of; but is she really any less-credible than the lunatics who occupied that CNN stage?

Not really, no. And Joe Biden, a guy who has been wrong about literally every issue our country has faced over the past 45 years, hasn’t even gotten into the race yet. But when he does, he’ll assume the role of front-runner for the nomination.

If this primary season doesn’t scare you to death, you’re not paying enough attention.

That is all.

 

Addendum: A couple of hours after I posted this Campaign Update, Cher decided to hit back at the Outrage Mob with this exchange with a supporter of Bernie Sanders.:

Good for her. We’ll see how long it takes for her to delete this one.

Act II of the Trump Presidency Begins With a Media Meltdown – Same as Act I

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

And now, Act II of the Trump Presidency begins. – As the curtain came down on Act I of the Trump Presidency following William Barr’s release of the Mueller Report on Thursday, we found our fake national news media engaged in one of the most epic meltdowns in its sordid history, exactly as we found them at the start of Act I. In other news, water remains wet, dogs still lick themselves in bad places, and Cody Bellinger hit another home run. Some things never change.

Act I was titled “Trials and Tribulations,” for obvious reasons. Today, on Good Friday, we move to Act II of the three-act play, this Act titled “The Race and Revelations.” (The symbolism of this day should not be lost on anyone paying real attention here.) This Act will be the shortest act of the 8-year Trump Presidency, but perhaps the most consequential once things are all said and done.

We begin with The Race – the Revelations will begin to come shortly, starting with the release of the Horowitz Report – as a motley array of miscreants, grifters, commies, liars and hacks present themselves to the Democrat Party voter base as potential nominees to run against President Donald Trump in 2020. Though they don’t fully realize it yet (though many suspect it), this is a contest they are preordained to lose, as America’s history stopped being written by chance early on the morning of November 8, 2016. From that point forward it has all been one big case of divine intervention – it’s the only rational explanation for all the insanity that has occurred since Trump won that election.

Regardless of the futile nature of the quest, we already have 15 or so (no one seems to be certain how many have actually announced) souls formally in the race, with more to come. This morning’s big news about The Race is that Creepy Joe Biden, with his half-century history of bringing unwanted physical contact to thousands of women and children, will defy all logic and common sense and go ahead and jump into the nominating contest within the coming week.

At 76 years old, Biden has already sought the presidency on two previous occasions and failed, but seems intent on besting the Pantsuit Princess in that category by trying and failing one more time. The social justice warriors and snowflakes who dominate the Party’s nominating process now might agree to nominate a young, gay white guy like Pete Buttigieg, or a young-ish, lunatic white guy like Irish Bob O’Rourke, or even an ancient, Bolshevik Commie white guy like Bernie Sanders. But there is no way on earth that they will nominate a doddering, handsy, goofy white guy like Biden.

In any event, Biden’s bad decision is just another Democrat gift to President Trump, providing the President with yet another easy target for ridicule from his Twitter feed. Having Biden, Bernie, Buttigieg and Beto – the four pasty white men of the Apocalypse – sitting atop the horse race polls for the foreseeable future will just serve to create further division and conflict within the Democrats’ identity politics-driven voter base, driving the Party’s voter enthusiasm inexorably downward.

Cool.

The fake news media will continue its focused effort to revive the rotting corpse of its Russia Collusion fantasy through this Easter weekend, but there will be no Easter Sunday resurrection, and Biden’s coming formal announcement will serve to move that dead story out of the news cycle starting next week. Congressional Democrats will continue to try to keep it somewhat in the news with their own Witch Hunts, but those will all ultimately amount to little more than dud bullets being fired from rusting pistols.

Even Rachel Maddow will ultimately be forced to abandon her nightly conspiracy-mongering for one simple reason: Democrat Party leaders will demand it of her. We must remember that the Democrat Party and the fake media establishment are essentially a single entity now, as intertwined with one another as the Obamas and Netflix.

The DNC will ultimately demand that all fake media outlets refocus their propaganda efforts on promoting the Party’s candidate clown car. We already saw the beginnings of this transition taking place yesterday, as first Steny Hoyer and later Bug-eyed Adam Schiff ran to the nearest microphone and camera to poo-pooh the idea of trying to impeach the President even as all the irate boobs at CNN and MSNBC were demanding they do so.

No, The Race is the thing now, and the Revelations are soon to come. Act II has officially begun, and this is all preordained.

Buckle up.

Oh, in case you’re wondering, Act III of the Trump Presidency is titled “Justice and Jubilation.” It’s preordained.

That is all.

It’s Predicament Day for Democrats and Disloyal White House Staffers

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

Oh, noes, not predicaments! – Y’all, we have a bunch of really awful people finding themselves in “predicaments” today – aren’t you sad? So, so, so sad for these terrible, sleazy people? Yeah, me neither.

The first bunch of execrable jackasses who find themselves in a predicament today are the leaders of the Democrat Party, and they’re in their current predicament thanks to what Bloomberg describes as “a sliver” of The Commie’s voter base, who are in what the media likes to call “Bernie or bust mode.” These voters are so embittered by the fact that the DNC fixed the 2016 nominating process for the Pantsuit Princess that they’ve decided they’ll simply abandon the Party if their Commie hero doesn’t get his way this time.

But hey, what’s the worry here? As I noted yesterday, Bernie’s the Democrat front-runner now, well ahead of Creepy Uncle Joe and 20 points up on Irish Bob O’Rourke. And isn’t it interesting that we don’t see Bloomberg or anyone else in the news media writing pieces about “Biden or Bust” voters or “Beto or Bust” voters? Although, the way they’re all slobbering over Mayor Pete right now, we will surely see some “Buttigieg or Bust” pieces in the near future.

Oh, hey, and have you noticed this?  Take a look at the photo above and tell me what the four men pictured have in common.  That’s right: The Party of Social Justice Warriors and campus Snowflakes has four pasty-white males leading everyone else in its nominating process. Taken together, those four symbols of white male privilege and toxic quasi-masculinity are pulling 70% of the support in the race in the new Emerson Poll.

Remember when Kamala Harris and Cory Booker were the Party’s “rising stars” according to the fake news media? They’ve been completely eclipsed by Irish Bob and Mayor Pete, two of the whitest white men on planet earth. The one real Hispanic candidate in the race, former San Antonio Mayor Joaquin Castro, having not been endowed with the fake media’s “rising star” tag, sits at 3% in the Emerson poll, and just 1% in every other recent poll taken in the race. The fakest Indian in the race, Elizabeth Warren, just keeps bumbling and stumbling along at 5-8% support in the various polls.

That reality in and of itself presents quite the predicament for the Democrat Party, because there are tons and tons of SJWs out there who aren’t going to vote for a white male, whether he’s a real Commie like Bernie, or pretend commies like Irish Bob or Mayor Pete. So any way you slice this pie, the Democrats have quite the predicament, thanks to their half-century-long cynical focus on identity politics.

I’m cool with that.

And now a word from our sponsors… – I spent a very fun half-hour on NewsTalk 93.1 FM in Montgomery, AL with host Greg Budell on Tuesday. The podcast is below. My segment starts at about the 35 minute mark, when Greg and his producer Joey tee up Cher’s Democrat Party theme song, “Gypsies, Tramps and Thieves” as my intro. But listen to the whole thing – Greg’s hilarious and runs a great program.

 

Follow this link for more of this great show’s podcasts, and follow Greg on Twitter at @GregBudell.

Now, back to today’s “predicaments”… – In other Predicament news, the pending release of the Mueller Report tomorrow by Attorney General William Barr has people nervous, and we can all imagine why that would be the case.

Apparently no one is more nervous today than all the creeps and seditionists on the White House staff who have been working from the inside to undermine President Donald Trump and his Administration for the last two years. The news-fakers at Vanity Fair are reporting that some of these scumbags and sleazeballs are “experiencing “breakdown-level anxiety” over whether their names or identifying details will appear in the report.”

Oh, my. Oh, my, my, my. Don’t you all just feel so terrible for them? Yeah, neither do I.

But boy, this is a real, big-time predicament, isn’t it? You’re a White House staffer. You took the job on a pledge to be loyal to the President and the country, and you have spent your time on the job leaking trash to our garbage news media and doing whatever else you could to inhibit that same President’s ability to do his job on behalf of the American people. Now, you’re afraid that the release of the report by the Gestapo Chief, er, “Special Counsel” who’s completed his 22-month sham investigation is going to catch you up in its undertow.

Well, that’s just dandy, as my dear Dad used to say.

Bring it on, Mr. Barr. Let’s out these seditionists and provide them with a little public-exposure “justice” of their own. Couldn’t think of a more deserving den of snakes.

That is all.

The Week in Review: Spying, Lying and Eunuchs, oh my!

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

[The week just past as chronicled on the @GDBlackmon Twitter feed.]

The week began with the bag of scum named Preet Bharara admitting he actively plotted to reverse the results of the 2016 elections after Donald Trump was elected. Things got much, much better from there.:

See? There really is good news out there if you just look for it…:

I am so surprised to learn that this could happen in our public schools! said no adult who has ever dealt with the public schools in America.:

This about sums it up, all right.:

What if the Commie Mayor of New York City visited Nevada as part of a presidential campaign exploratory effort and nobody noticed?:

The ineffectual Kirstjen Nielsen got canned, and Larry Schweikart summed it up properly.:

Chris Coons demagogued the Neilsen firing, and pissed me off. Can you tell?:

James Woods with some really strong advice.:

One of the best parts of Twitter is reading all the enraged replies to the Babylon Bee by social justice warriors who are too dim to realize it is a parody account. Priceless.:

This was only the most predictable thing in the world.:

I’m not sure whether to laugh, cry, or just recoil in abject horror.:

The video of activist Candace Owens raking House Judiciary Democrats over their racist coals became the most-watched web-based video in C-Span’s history.:

Attorney General William Barr threw the Democrats and their news media co-conspirators into a panicked frenzy this week with his two days of congressional testimony. It was glorious.:

This happened on Wednesday.:

In the midst of it all, the shameless hacks at CNN just kept on doing what they do better than anybody else in the business, faking the news.:

No, times haven’t really changed much at all. All the racists in the un-doctored version of that photo were Democrats, too.:

GOP Texas Cong. Dan Crenshaw told the truth about Ilhan Omar’s despicable comments on 9/11. Democrats can’t handle the truth, so this tweet touched off a firestorm that raged through the rest of the week. *sigh*:

The Houston Chronicle embarrassed itself with this op-ed.:

AG Barr set the world afire once again with his clear-eyed admission that the Obama Administration was “spying” on the Trump Campaign. Democrats once again recoiled in abject horror at the truth finding its way into the public domain, because of course they did.:

CNN responded in very, very, very predictable fashion. The faked the news. *sigh*:

Oh, look. Bill Kristol thinks he still has “Republican friends.” Isn’t that precious?:

The hacks at Politico tried their best to keep up in the fakenews game by faking the news on…wait for it…a presidential visit to Mount Vernon.  I kid you not.:

Why yes, yes they are.:

Nick Searcy perfectly captures the essence of the Eric Swalwell for President campaign.:

I found the perfect screen shot of CNN’s little eunuch.:

Meanwhile, in news no American with a life gives a damn about…:

That’s a rhetorical question, right, Brit Hume?:

Hoping American taxpayers aren’t looking, makers of non-competitive electric vehicles campaigned to actually increase their already-princely taxpayer subsidies. Because of course they did.:

Also, this happened.:

Thursday was turning into a really epic day…:

Really, really epic…:

Some irrational tweets by mindless leftists require a rational answer.:

AOC decided to come to Ilhan Omar’s defense in a stupendously vapid way that only she could possibly achieve. For those unaware, Dan Crenshaw is a Navy Seal who fought for this country against terrorists in the Middle East, lost an eye in a roadside bomb attack, and is the recipient of a Purple Heart.:

The news of the indictment of Obama’s former White House Counsel was given less than a minute’s air time by the three major fake news networks. No surprise there, right?:

The latest media-created Democrat “Rising Star” was turning poor Beto into a has-been.:

By coincidence, my very thoughtful daughter and granddaughter bought me a fabulous new t-shirt. I’m wearing it, right now, in fact.:

Chevron bought out Anadarko in one of the biggest U.S. oil and gas mergers in the 21st century.:

Adam Schiff, whose home state has been using illegal immigrants as political pawns for decades now, tips off the Democrat/media talking points on Trump’s plan to relocate illegals to sanctuary cities. Hilarity ensuses.:

Speaking of our favorite pendejo, here he is, lying about the ongoing border crisis.:

Sure glad to see the Pentagon has its national defense priorities straight. *sigh*:

This bit of fakenews from Politico hasn’t held up well in light of current events.:

It’s the big one, Elizabeth! I’m comin’ to join you!:

We’ll close the week out with this one. If you want to understand the inner workings of the Democrat/media hive mind, it’s a good read. If you’re a Democrat, you should avoid it, since you might learn something.:

 

That is all.

Mayor Pete Has Stolen Beto’s Media Date to the Dance

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

Why, what could possibly go wrong? – A team of Chinese scientists is grafting human genes into monkeys, in an effort to make them “smarter and more human-like.” I swear I don’t make this stuff up.

According to the report in the Business Recorder, “Researchers edited the human version of a gene known as ‘MCPH1’ into the macaques. The gene made the monkeys’ brain develop along a more human-like timelineThe gene-hacked monkeys showed better reaction times and improved short-term memories in comparison to their unaltered peers...”  I smell a sequel to “Plant of the Apes” in there somewhere.

In all seriousness, these monkeys should immediately announce their candidacy for the Democrat presidential nomination. They would smarter than half the field, better-behaved that Irish Bob O’Rourke, make a great target for Amy Klobuchar to vent her frustrations, and be far more “human-like” than Joe Biden or Bernie Sanders.

And speaking of Irish Bob O’Rourke… – Here’s the problem with being a media-created Democrat “Rising Star”: Everything tends to go to crap when the media inevitably finds a new rising star to create. For our hero, Irish Bob, it’s all turning into a tale of woe – or, more accurately, one of woeful polls that came out yesterday in the states that make up the first two contests of the nominating process.

First came a new Monmouth University poll of registered Democrat voters in Iowa, where O’Rourke spent the first week or so of his official campaign in March, driving around the corn fields in his carbon dioxide-emitting gas-powered van because he wanted to show he was a man of the people and the people in Iowa don’t drive no Teslas because Teslas don’t use no Ethanol, don’t you know. That pandering strategy apparently did not work out so well for our sheep suit-wearing fake Hispanic, nor did all the jumping up on the nearest table and waving his arms to get attention.

The results of the Monmouth poll are clear: Iowans don’t much care for Beto. O’Rourke, who just a few months ago was widely touted as one of the favorites in this race by his legion of media adorers, came in a very weak sixth place with just 6% support, trailing Joe Biden, Bernie Sanders, Pete Buttigieg, Kamala Harris and even Fauxcahontas in the results.

Yes, friends, Iowa Democrats prefer a fake Indian to a fake Hispanic. Go figure.

As if that result weren’t awful enough for the premiere media darling of 2018, the folks at St. Anselm’s College released a poll of New Hampshire Democrat voters to make matters even more depressing. It turns out that Granite State Democrats would rather live free or die than vote for a circus clown who livestreams his dental cleanings and calls Bibi Netanyahu a racist.

Irish Bob again comes in a very weak sixth place, again with just 6% support in this poll. He trails the same five other candidates as in New Hampshire, though in a slightly different order, with the fake Indian popping up ahead of Harris in this state.

So, what’s going on here? Well, several things.

First, as I noted a few weeks ago, Irish Bob most likely missed his window of opportunity to become an immediate, early leader in this race. He was without question the media’s favorite Democrat at the end of 2018 – they had a crush on him like a high school cheerleader with a crush on the team’s quarterback. That crush would have continued and even intensified had he returned the media’s longing desires by immediately and decisively announcing his candidacy on New Year’s Day or very shortly thereafter.

But he didn’t do that. Instead, he did what high school quarterbacks often do and fooled around for a few months. While the adoring media longed to have its precious Beto in the race, Irish Bob chose to play the field, as it were, hemming and hawing, often disappearing for weeks at a time, and refusing to commit to the relationship that the media so desperately desired.

In the meantime, other candidates anxious to attain the media’s “Rising Star” status were getting into the race and eagerly courting the media’s affections. First came Kamala Harris, who rocketed up the charts firmly into a strong 3rd place behind Biden and Sanders as soon as she offered to take the media out on their first date. It seemed to be a match made in fake news media heaven for awhile, until Harris began committing repeated gaffes, like getting caught on camera letting a CNN fake reporter help her pick out jackets at a high-dollar department store. That show of favoritism to one fake media outlet served to turn other fake media outlets off and had them go out looking for another “Rising Star” to create.

Enter Pete Buttigieg, or “Mayor Pete”, as his media adorers now love to call him. Young, good-looking, smart, quick with the recitation of his favorite talking points, able to hold his own in a tough interview with Chris Wallace – young Mayor Pete seemingly has it all, including being openly gay and married, which is like manna from heaven for his media courtiers.

As first Irish Bob’s and then Kamala’s “rising stars” have faded, it is no accident at all that Mayor Pete’s has eclipsed them in the Democrat Party’s media-created night sky. That’s what a plethora of softball interviews on the cable and broadcast networks, along with all the glowing “He’s just like another Kennedy!” profiles in the New York Times, the Washington Post, the New Yorker and Vanity Fair will do for a guy.

And here’s the thing about Mayor Pete: He’s not stupid or self-absorbed enough to just blow his media cheerleaders off, like their precious Beto did. Nor is he inept enough to engage in a similar series of off-putting gaffes like the bumbling Kamala.

No, Mr. Buttigieg is not a mere shooting star, no flash in the pan, as it were. You should get used to seeing his name running strong in the polling in this race, at least until someone even more attractive to the fickle fake media cheerleaders comes along and sweeps them off their feet.

Other than possibly those monkeys in China, it’s getting harder and harder to see who is still out there who might swoop in and get the media’s date to the Homecoming dance.

That is all.

Jump on in, Alec Baldwin, the Water’s Fine!

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

Go for it, dude. – Fading actor and public assault and battery specialist Alec Baldwin took to his Twitter account yesterday (because that’s how all the fading celebrities communicate – right, Alyssa Milano?) and said this:

Yeah, that’s what Hillary Clinton thought, too. But, oh, hell, why not? Why not have an actor who is most famous for impersonating the President run against him? Would he be any less credible than than the assortment of cranks, hacks, and political grifters who are already in the race?

After all, the field already includes a candidate who is most famous for impersonating an Indian, another who thinks he is Spartacus, a senator who got ahead by sleeping around, another senator who is most notable for abusing her staff, a senator from New York who nobody can figure out why in the hell she’s in the race, a loser who wears sheep suits and rides a skateboard onto stage, a Commie who honeymooned at Lenin’s tomb, and a former vice president who can’t keep his hands off of women and children.

Would Alec Baldwin really bring any less credibility to a presidential race than that clown car? I mean, shoot, he did play Jack Ryan in a movie that one time, so he’s got that going for him.

And I haven’t even mentioned Pete Buttigieg yet. Here’s a guy who favors murdering children right up until the moment at which they would be born and even beyond, and he just spent half an interview on “Meet the Press” and much of his speech at something called the LGBTQ Victory Fund National Champagne Brunch questioning the religious beliefs of the sitting President and Vice President of the United States.

Well, isn’t that special? (Some of you baby boomers will get that reference; you Millennials will probably have to Google it.)

As I predicted a few weeks ago, Mr. Buttigieg is the latest media-facilitated “rising star” in Democrat circles, a guy with no real notable political achievements to speak of – other than getting elected to a notable office – but a guy who checks a lot of the demographic boxes favored by the Democrats’ social justice warrior voter base and who looks good on television. He’s probably about to be eclipsed by the looming, very large presence of the next media-facilitated Democrat “rising star”, Stacey Abrams, but for now, he’s da bomb in media circles, the guy all the Sunday shows are dying to have as their guest and all the fake newspapers and magazines like Vanity Fair can’t wait to profile and compare to Kennedys. He should enjoy all the attention while he can.

But wait, there’s more!

Now, we have this Eric Swalwell guy officially running. He made that official announcement on … wait for it… the Late Show with Stephen Colbert! Because of course he did.

Swalwell is a guy who has the maturity level of the average college frat social director – he is Otter from “Animal House” in the flesh.

His entire schtick is to go on CNN and MSNBC and lie about all the proof of Russia Collusion he has seen but can’t talk about in any detail because it’s all like doublesecretprobation and stuff and only he and Adam Schiff have seen it but everyone is supposed to believe him because he’s the social director for the biggest frat of all, the Democrat Party.

*sigh*

If Lorne Michaels and the writers at Saturday Night Live were intent on creating real humor these days rather than tiresome political swill, they’d invite Tim Matheson to guest host and have him do an impression of Eric Swalwell announcing his presidential run standing next to the beer keg at the frat party. Have Stephen Colbert play the Boone character. That would be some funny stuff right there.

But back to Alec Baldwin: He was likely joking with that tweet yesterday, but hey, why wouldn’t he go ahead and jump into this race? After all, it’s already a car filled with clowns, and he’s a professional clown these days, so he’d fit right in.

Kamala would probably even let him call shotgun.

That is all.

Kirstjen Nielsen Resigns, and Nothing Much Will Change

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

Nielsen’s out, and not much will change. – Kirstjen Nielsen became the fall guy for the ongoing fiasco at our southern border last night, to be replaced as Homeland Security Secretary by ex-Obama official Kevin McAleenan, who served as Deputy Secretary under the infamous Jeh Johnson.

So, what difference will the change in personnel make? Not much. The problem at the border is with the tragic state of our laws and politically-motivated court decisions issued by outlaw Obama judges. Until congress acts to change the laws – and this particular congress is not going to do so – the situation at the border cannot be resolved without the building of a wall. Even with a wall, it will remain near-impossible for the government to send invaders who manage to sneak into our country illegally back home unless the absurd loopholes in the asylum laws are changed. Simple as that.

So, the Democrats have “won” in this issue: They have succeeded in creating a situation of utter chaos on our border with Mexico, they have the literal invasion of our country they’ve worked for so many years to create, and no one in a position of power can do anything effective to stop it. This is the ultimate outcome of the Obama/Soros plan to “transform this country”, as Obama was so fond of saying throughout his presidency. And hey, they had plenty of help from Paul Ryan, John McCain, Mitch McConnell and the Republican majorities in both houses of congress, who did literally nothing on this issue during President Trump’s first two years in office.

A pox on all their houses.

This is the issue on which the 2020 presidential election will be decided. – The President can talk all he wants to about the booming economy and Democrats can talk all they want about Green New Deals and free stuff for everybody, but, just like it was in 2016, what to do about the ongoing invasion – and that is what it is – taking place from Texas to California will ultimately decide who gets to live in the White House starting in 2021.

President Trump understands this, which is why he decided last week to put off dealing with the healthcare issue until after the 2020 election has come and gone, choosing instead to keep his focus on border security and pounding his Democrat opponents for refusing to do anything to address it.

The winning strategy for Trump is obvious: Get as many miles of new border wall built as you can with all that Department of Defense money that’s been identified, and pound the Democrats on the issue every day. Keep them on the defensive for the next 18 months.

That leaves the Democrats with what they always try to do on this subject: Rank demagoguery and trying to change the subject.

Hey, thanks to the Paul Ryan/Mitt Romney/John McCain wing of the GOP, it’s worked for them so far.

Some campaign odd and ends:

How moribund is Elizabeth Warren’s campaign? Fauxcahontas is running a poor third in her home state of Massachusetts. That moribund. And look who’s about to catch her there: Pete Buttigieg. Ouch.

Speaking of moribund campaigns, how about Cory Booker’s? He announced he had raised $5 million during the first quarter of this year, which sounds like a decent number until you realize that Buttigieg, the little-known mayor of South Bend, Indiana, had raised $7 million. Yikes.

Bernie Sanders led the Q1 money race for the Dems, coming in at $18 million. Kamala Harris raised $12 million, while Irish Bob O’Rourke came in at $9.4 million, with most of that coming in March following his announcement in late February. Because he hasn’t formally announced, frontrunner Joe Biden had no fundraising numbers to release.

Meanwhile, President Trump raised $67.5 million, $26 million more than those five leading Democrats combined.

Oh.

That is all.

Six More Years of “President Donald Trump”? Magic 8-ball says “Most Likely”

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

Hey, when he’s right, he’s right.  – At a rally in Michigan last night, President Donald Trump (I never tire of typing those three glorious words) put the exact right label on the Democrats’ refusal to drop the whole Russia Collusion fantasy in the wake of the end of the Mueller “investigation,” referring to their ongoing propaganda campaign as “ridiculous bullshit.”

Here’s the full quote:

“The Democrats have to now decide whether they will continue defrauding the public with ridiculous bullshit, partisan investigations, or whether they will apologize to the American people and join us to rebuild our crumbling infrastructure, bring down the cost of health care and prescription drugs … help us fix our broken trade deals,” he said to the crowd.

Be honest:  One of the things that makes you a little bit uncomfortable about President Trump is that he so often expresses exactly what you were thinking but were reluctant to blurt out yourself. Coming as I do from a family of Texas over-cussers, I can think of no better way to describe the ongoing behavior of Democrats like Adam Schiff, Jabba the Nadler, Irish Bob O’Rourke and Eric Swalwell than to call it “ridiculous bullshit.” Because that’s what it is.

Personally, I appreciate the President for going ahead and saying it so I would feel justified myself repeating it several times in this morning’s Campaign Update. Because it is ridiculous bullshit – it just is.

Speaking of Trump’s rally in Michigan… – Democrats who poo-poo the President’s rallies as being insignificant are quite frankly whistling past the graveyard. Yesterday’s rally in Grand Rapids – a city of less than 200,000 – attracted more than 32,000 people. At one point, the line waiting to get into the Van Andel Arena stretched for more than a mile. As usual, the thousands who could not gain admittance into the facility stood outside and watched on giant TV screens.

This is not a one-time fluke – this happens over and over and over again at every rally the President holds. The Democrats and their fake news media flunkies want you to believe that this is a very unpopular POTUS, but his 50% approval rating in the Rasmussen survey tells another story, and his average public approval rating is higher than Ronald Reagan’s was at this point in his first term in office.

An unpopular, failing president would have a hard time attracting major crowds like this one. But these rallies have actually grown larger and more intense over time, not less so. Just as with the big Obama rallies in 2008, they are in fact a harbinger of a very strong candidate, an incumbent whose re-election chances are growing stronger by the day.

I don’t like to hyper-focus on polls since they are so unreliable, but the new Quinnipiac poll out this week it a good indicator of what an uphill climb the Democrats truly have in 2020. Here’s a link to The Hill’s report on this poll.

First, as The Hill notes in its blaring headline, Pete Buttigieg has “surged”, now getting 4% support in the Democrat horse race. Second, Fauxcahontas is mired way down in a tie with the 37 year-old mayor of South Bend, IN. Ouch. Things are just not working out for Little Mouth Always Running, are they?

Third, Irish Bob O’Rourke has very predictably moved past a fading Kamala Harris to capture 3rd place, pulling 12% to Harris’s 8%. Fourth, Creepy Joe Biden now holds a 10-point lead over the Commie at 29-19.

None of those results are in any way surprising to anyone who has been paying attention to the dynamics of this race, which is admittedly still in its very early stages.  Harris has thus far been a stumbling, bumbling disaster of a candidate, a prime example of someone whose time in the public spotlight came well before she was ready for it.

The Commie has his base of support, but finds it getting peeled away by all the other commies in the race, like Buttigieg, for example. It’s like he’s dying a death by a thousand cuts, as all the other craven candidates keep stealing his issues and policy positions.

Biden hasn’t even formally announced his candidacy yet, but continues to attract fairly strong early support on name recognition and his association with Obama. That Obama-glow will steadily wear away as the race goes on, and we will probably see “Peak Biden” as his polls surge in the week after his formal announcement, and then slowly but steadily fade as the long race drags on and the demented Democrat voter base wake up to who he really is.

So, none of that is any surprise at all.  But here is what is a surprise buried deep in the bowels of this poll:

Just 57% of the self-identified Democrats and Democrat-leaning registered voters polled in this survey say they will not vote for President Trump regardless of who the Democrat nominee is in 2020. That is an extraordinarily low percentage from this segment of society, meaning as it does that fully 43% of “Democrats and Democrat-leaning registered voters” are open to the idea of a second Trump term in office.

Ooof.

Get used to saying President Donald Trump, Democrats, because you most likely have 6 more years to do so.

That is all.
