As Senate Repubs Commit Hari-Kari, Trump Drops a Huge Bomb of Transparency

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Ok, so when do we get that study de-linking smoking and lung cancer? – A new study from a bunch of doctors somewhere claims to have proven that there is no link – none at all – between high levels of what your doctor has been calling “bad cholesterol” for the last 40 years or so and heart disease.

That’s right, boys and girls, if you have spent years putting nasty slimy skim milk on your cereal, consuming “cheese” made from soybeans, replacing your beef ribeyes with bland, tough Bison sirloins and pretending to actually like getting your protein from nasty stuff like Tofu and Quinoa, well, you did not need to be doing all of that, at least according to these folks.  Guess I didn’t need to be taking that big Lipitor pill every night for the last six years, either.  Go figure.

Fair warning before you go out and clean your local Kroger out of ribeyes:  We’ll no doubt be getting another study from a different group of doctors showing the exact opposite conclusion within months.  So you might want to limit your lifestyle change to just getting a gallon of whole milk and overdosing on that.

This is the Senate Republicans, committing Hari Kari before your very eyes. – After panicking throughout Sunday and most of the day Monday, Senate Republicans made the very worst decision possible related to the obviously false accusations being levied against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh by leftwing activist Christine Ford.  Not only did the gutless wonders give the Democrats the delay in the Committee process they wanted, they also scheduled a replay of the Clarence Thomas/Anita Hill fiasco for next Monday.

So, assuming the shameless accuser accepts the invite – which she has not done at this point –  Republicans will literally get the worst of all possible worlds out of this:  A delayed nomination, an irreparably tarnished nominee thanks to the heinously biased coverage by our fake news media, and a two-day spectacle in which a bunch of old white guys will be questioning this woman on national television.

Seriously, it’s like Mitch McConnell and Chuck Grassley huddled up and went about figuring out how they could turn this into the perfect recipe for losing control of the Senate in November, and decided to go with that.  Hell, maybe that’s what they deserve.

Meanwhile, over at the White House… – Hey, y’all, President Donald Trump finally, at long last ordered the declassification of a bunch of documents that DOJ has been withholding from various congressional committees for over a year yesterday!  That’s the good news.  The bad news is that the declassification process will be carried out by the still-corrupt Justice Department (DOJ) and the hopefully-less-corrupt Office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI).  So who knows how long this will all take.

If carried out honestly, it should happen quickly, because the President’s order is very specific and demands the documents be released in un-redacted form.  Those documents include:

  • 21 pages from the 412 pages of documents related to the FISA warrant application that allowed the FBI/DOJ cabal to spy on Carter Page and the Trump Campaign;
  • all FBI reports on interviews with Justice Department official Bruce Ohr;
  • all FBI reports of interviews prepared in connection with all other applications to surveil Carter Page;
  • all text messages, “without redaction”, from Ohr, Peter Strzok, Lisa Page, former FBI Director and current Teenage Drama Queen James Comey and former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe.

That’s a good start, a start that should have happened a month ago at the latest, and it will no doubt shed much more light on the disgraceful corruption that was taking place within the Obama DOJ and FBI throughout the 2016 election campaign.  But the list is incomplete, and will still leave some aspects of the massive corruption held secret within the lateral files of the slimy Rod Rosenstein.

Here are a couple of long-stonewalled documents that are not included in the President’s initial declass list:

  • The memo written by Mr. Rosenstein authorizing the creation of the Special Counsel’s office under Robert Mueller;
  • The subsequent Rosenstein memo that expanded the investigatory scope of the Mueller investigation;
  • The FBI 302 files containing the notes of Peter Strzok and other FBI agents present for the January 2017 entrapment interview with General Mike Flynn, including the originals and all subsequent modified versions of it.

The authorizing memos by Rosenstein are crucial because if they were done legally they would a) clearly lay out a scope for Mueller’s investigation, and b) specifically point to some actual crime for him to investigate.  Given that there is no such crime as “collusion” mentioned anywhere in the federal statutes, legal scholars like Alan Dershowitz and Jonathan Turley have raised questions about the investigation’s legality from the very beginning.  Multiple congressional committees have been attempting to obtain these memos for more than a year now.

The 302 files are also crucial because many researchers believe that Strzok and his fellow corrupt FBI agents altered their original notes from the Flynn meeting in order to entrap him into the “lying to the FBI” charge to which he plead guilty.  Many believe that this fact is why Mueller has repeatedly asked the judge in the case to delay sentencing of Flynn over the past 10 months, with the most recent delay being requested and agreed-to just yesterday.

The sentencing has now been delayed to November 28, after the mid-term elections, and right at a full year since Flynn entered his plea.  Perhaps the President just wants to keep these key documents in his hip pocket in the hope that his initial order will spur Rosenstein and FBI Director Christopher Wray to go ahead and come clean.  If so, he’s likely to be disappointed.

At any rate, the most hilarious part of the President’s order on Monday was to go out to Twitter and marvel at every liberal fake reporter in the country wailing in protest about all this sudden transparency that was going on.  It is moments like these in which this community of shameless hacks jointly reveal their despicable true nature.

It was all too much for real, actual journalists like Mollie Hemingway to stomach:

But hey, once you accept the fact that all the fake journalists are just Democrat activists with press passes, everything they do begins to make perfect sense.

Just another day in trasparency-hating fake news media America.

Brennan, Strzok, Clapper and our #Fakenews Nation

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

“What in the wide, wide world of sports is a-goin’ on here?” – Man, the Campaign Update goes on vacation for 10 days, and you people let all hell break loose.  Well, ok, all hell breaks loose pretty much all the time in our fake news media society these days, but the past week and 3 days seemed more active than usual.

Just for fun, let’s do a quick review of the highlights that took place while yours truly and the little wifey were minding our own business on the high seas:

Super Duper FBI Agent and aspiring spawn of Satan Peter Strzok got canned.  Yes, friends, Jeff Sessions apparently woke up from one of his 3-week naps early last week and realized that he had forgotten to hit ‘Send’ on that FIRE PETER STRZOK RIGHT FREAKING NOW! memo to FBI Director Christopher Wray that he had drafted way back in April.  Now, if he can just get around to drafting – and sending – that INDICT PETER STRZOK RIGHT FREAKING NOW! memo to John Huber, we can begin to regain some semblance of confidence that our justice system still functions to some extent.

Super Duper FBI Agent and aspiring spawn of Satan Peter Strzok got rich.  Well, ok, not exactly rich, but he did get a nice supplement to his investment fund by setting up a GoFundMe account and watching with glee as thousands of Democrats lined up to give him money, proving yet again that PT Barnum was right when he said there’s a sucker born every minute.

Speaking of the justice system, the jury in the Paul Manafort trial went into its deliberations late last week after the defense rested without calling any witnesses.  The defense believes it was able to poke enough holes in the prosecution’s case prove reasonable doubt, which may well be true given that the jury sent a note to Federal District Judget T.S. Ellis requesting him to define the term for them one more time.  Right after that happened…

The fake news media tried to doxx the Manafort jury!  Yes, friends, the very same fake news media that doesn’t want you all to think it is the enemy of the people proved beyond any doubt at all that it is indeed the enemy of the people by suing the court to obtain the names and addresses of the jury members within hours of it becoming obvious that at least some jury members were thinking about acquitting Manafort due to reasonable doubt.  Given that CNN and the New York Times were among the media outlets making the request, there can be no doubt whatsoever – reasonable or otherwise – that the names and addresses of all of the jurors would be leaked to Antifa and other violent leftist groups within moments of their being obtained.  Does anyone really believe the likes of Sarah Jeoung or Chris Cuomo – who actually endorsed Antifa on air  last week – would even give it a second thought?  Thankfully, Judge Ellis told the fake news purveyors to pound sand, perhaps because he has personally experienced numerous death threats himself and requires round-the-clock security thanks to his involvement in this trial.

John Brennan lost his security clearance.  The former CIA Director and obvious role model for the evil Dar Adal character on “Homeland” initially claimed he was being “silenced,” and then went to the fakest fake journalist he could find – MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow – to give him a reliably softball interview on national television.  During that interview, the guy who had accused the President of the United States of committing “treason” for meeting with the leader of Russia claimed he had never accused the POTUS of committing “treason.” He also told Maddow that he doesn’t “think I’m being political at all.”  Even Maddow smirked at that one.  Brennan got paid by MSNBC to do all of that, by the way.  No wonder President Trump wanted to elevate this guy’s public profile – he is the perfect foil.

James Clapper tossed John Brennan under the bus.  In a desperate bid to save his own security clearance – which he has been blatantly monetizing thanks to his contract with CNN for the last 18 months – the former Director of National Intelligence went on CNN Sunday and tossed his old colleague under the bus, saying that Brennan’s outspokenness was becoming an issue.  Remember that Clapper is also the guy who tossed Barack Hussein Obama under the bus just a few weeks ago when he admitted to CNN that all of the spying efforts on the Trump Campaign by the FBI and other intelligence agencies were instigated at Obama’s request.  Clapper is truly the king of CYA.

Keith Ellison got accused of abusing multiple women and the fake news media couldn’t be bothered to report it.  No surprise here, since Ellison is only the second-in-command at the DNC, which dictates the daily talking points to the fake news media.  Or maybe it’s the other way around.  At any rate, expecting NBC, CBS, ABC, or CNN to report on Ellison’s abuse is like expecting a wife to testify against her husband in a criminal trial.  Not gonna happen, at least not voluntarily.

The New York Times faked up another story on a slow news day.  On Saturday, the fake reporters and fake editors at the fake New York Times got bored and decided to fake up a story about how White House Counsel Don McGahn had spent 30 hours “cooperating” with Special Counsel Robert Mueller in his investigation.  This set off a clamor among the entire fake media – which basically just cuts and pastes whatever the NYTimes spews out on its pages – that lasted the rest of the weekend.  Analogies to Watergate and John Dean were ubiquitous.  The problem with the story is that it’s very old news, simply a re-wording and recycling of information that had been made public months ago by none other than President Trump himself, who had authorized McGahn’s cooperation in the Fall of 2017, in an attempt to speed Mueller’s efforts along.  And the media wonders why half of America considers it to be the enemy.

The media outlets who claim they don’t conspire against President Trump…conspired against President Trump.  No kidding, on either Tuesday or Wednesday of last week (I was on a boat having too much food and wine so the days kind of all blend together at this point) more than 300 newspapers joined together to pen editorials bashing President Trump.  They thought they were doing something special, but this is what ordinary Americans out here in Flyover Country think of as your average Tuesday or Wednesday – or Thursday or Friday or Saturday or Sunday or Monday, for that matter.

Ok, so those are just some of the highlights that took place over the last 10 days.  I’d fill you in on what the little wifey and I did on our vacation, but it mostly had to do with food and wine and seeing a couple of Broadway productions and getting on and off a big boat and this is getting a little long and I don’t want CNN or the NYTimes doxxing any of the wonderful folks we dealt with along the way.

It’s great to be back.

That is all.

Did the Whole Russia Collusion Fantasy Game Just Change?

The Evening Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Suddenly, starting over this past weekend, it’s beginning to feel like the tide of national events vis a vis the whole Democrat/Media Russia Collusion fantasy play has begun to turn.  So many key things have taken place since late last week that I’ll probably miss some of them, but I’ll give it a try:

Page Trumps Strzok – It all seems to have started with the closed-door deposition testimony by Super-Duper FBI Agent Peter Strzok’s ex-girlfriend, ex-DOJ lawyer Lisa Page, which took place on July 19-20.  According to GOP Rep. Mark Meadows and others who were present, Page was a far more credible witness than  her spawn of Satan ex-boyfriend, and her version of events differed significantly from the line of BS Strzok spewed during his testimony the previous week.  It’s key to note that no one in the media or the Democrat Party is demanding that the transcript of her testimony be made public.

Another Housecleaning at FBI – Also on July 19 came news that no fewer than three senior cyber-security officials at the FBI were announcing their “retirements” on the same day.  “What a coincidence!”, said the fake news media in unison.

The three “retiring” officials are  Scott Smith, Assistant Director over the FBI’s cyber division; David Resch, the executive assistant director of the Criminal, Cyber, Response and Services Branch; and Carl Ghattas, the executive assistant director of the National Security Branch.  Coming as they do in the wake of President Trump’s summit with Vladimir Putin and all the hysteria over supposed Russian threats to meddle in the mid-term elections, it seems highly unlikely these three departures are actually mere coincidence.  It all smells much more like a house-cleaning, similar to the one we saw during December last year, when Strzok, Page and Bruce Ohr were all demoted within days of one another.

FISA Abuse Exposed – Saturday, July 21, the Big Kahuna dropped, as Judicial Watch, having won a battle in federal court, released 412 pages of documents that form the basis for the FISA warrant and its three subsequent renewals that in turn formed the after-the-fact justification for the FBI/DOJ’s spying efforts on the Trump Campaign, Transition and Administration.  The documents were highly redacted – very predictably – but what wasn’t redacted was extremely revealing, proving that the FBI/DOJ anti-Trump cabal relied almost solely on the Fusion GPS fake Trump Dossier as its basis for defrauding the FISA Court and obtaining the warrant.

Trump Tweets – Meanwhile, President Trump himself was very busy on Twitter, and in thinking about the following tweets, it’s key to keep in mind that Trump knows everything that really happened, who did what, and has known all of this most likely since before he took office.  Here are some tweets that really stand out to me in this context:

Mind you, these first two tweets were issued before Judicial Watch dropped the FISA documents.  The key to me is the final sentence of the 2nd tweet:  “Republicans better get smart fast and expose what they are doing!”  The President doesn’t just burp these tweets out for no reason, and that sure seems like foreshadowing to me.

Then, after the Judicial Watch document dump, the President repeated the same theme in another pair of tweets:

“Republicans must get tough now.  An illegal Scam!”  More foreshadowing.

Some in congress are listening – Later on Sunday  morning, House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte appeared on Fox News and made it clear to host Maria Bartiromo that he had heard the President’s message.  In that interview, Chairman Goodlatte “discusses John Brennan, James Comey, and Loretta Lynch being sought for questioning on their actions during the 2016 Presidential Election; as well as compliance responses from Peter Strzok, Rod Rosenstein and Lisa Page.”

An Uproar From The Amen Chorus – Throughout the last week, the cacophony of anti-Trump screeds coming from the Obama loyalist Amen Chorus has grown increasingly shrill.  This includes not just former officials in the Obama Administration, but their media collaborators as well.  With the Page testimony not going as they had hoped and the release of the FISA fraud documents, they all can now clearly see the walls beginning to close in.  The lashing out is a sign of desperation.

The desperation became even more clear on Monday, July 23, when Sarah Huckabee Sanders’ announcement that President Trump was considering revoking the security clearances of Brennan, Comey, Clapper, Rice, Hayden and McCabe elicited an audible gasp from the assembled preening peacocks-and-hens of the White House press corps.  Speaker Paul Ryan, himself an incurable creature of the DC Swamp, laughed the President’s threat off as a “trolling” exercise, but none of the six targets and their supporters in the fake news media were laughing at what was a clear signal from the White House that the game is about to change.

Hey, Mr. Speaker, if you want an example of a Trump Troll, here’s a hilarious (and true) one from earlier today:

 

Hey, Somebody Woke Up Sessions! – Finally, while the President’s “Republicans must get tough now” message was in part meant for Republicans in congress like Goodlatte, it also was likely a signal to Attorney General Jeff Sessions that it’s time to end his long seeming hibernation from the public eye.  And just like that, there was Sessions earlier today, addressing a high school leadership conference in Washington, DC, joining in with the chant of “lock her up, lock her up!” coming from the crowd.

Now, that could just be a coincidence, but have you ever, in the 17 months since he took office, seen AG Sessions participate in that kind of targeting at the Pantsuit Princess?  No?  Neither have I.

Look, all of the stuff I’ve laid out here could be just a grand, if highly unlikely, coincidence of events all pointing in the same direction.  But I don’t believe in coincidences and neither should you.

This sure feels like a turning to me.  The next few weeks could be a ton of fun.

That is all.

The Democrats and the Media Want War With Russia. Why?

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

When I saw this headline, I assumed it had to be about Peter Strzok. – Man arrested for contacting ex-girlfriend 200 times per day.

Let me guess – because you’re an idiot and an awful mother? – A British fake journalist named Rebecca Schiller wrote a piece for the UK Guardian titled “Why I took my 8 year-old daughter on an anti-Trump protest.”  Good grief.

Tired of all this Winning yet? – A few minutes ago, the President tweeted the following:

Four percent economic growth.  Four percent unemployment.  ISIS is about 98 percent dead.  The price of gasoline is going down because the President leaned on the Saudis to put more crude oil on the open market.  The Crazy Little Fat Guy in North Korea has been neutralized.  The U.S. is now back on a path towards a productive relationship with Russia.  The Supreme Court will soon have a working majority that will consistently respect the U.S. Constitution for the first time in two generations.

All this and so much more has been achieved in just 20 months, and it is driving the Democrat/fake news media axis of propaganda utterly mad.

Profiles in how not to do public relations, courtesy of MGM Resorts. – The families of the victims of last October’s Las Vegas massacre have a real reason to be outraged, as they were all sued on Monday by the raving morons who run MGM Resorts, which of course owns the Mandalay Bay Casino Resort from which the Vegas gunman killed or wounded more than 500 people.  I swear I don’t make this stuff up:

“The company, which owns Mandalay Bay and the Route 91 Harvest festival venue, argues that it cannot be held liable for Oct. 1 deaths, injuries or other damages, adding that any claims against MGM parties “must be dismissed,” according to complaints filed Friday in Nevada and California.”

Mind you, this is the same Mandalay Bay whose miserably incompetent security allowed the shooter to spirit something like 20 huge suitcases filled with guns and ammo up to his room over a period of several days using the freaking freight elevator, for crying out loud.  For this company to now claim that it has no liability in this mass shooting is just despicable, and so unbelievably stupid from a PR aspect that I honestly hope they get put out of business for it.  A pox on all their houses.

Oh, and here’s another tweet that President Trump just posted that’s worth mentioning:

This tweet is worth mentioning because it’s absolutely true, pointing to a reality that constitutes one of the most frightening aspects of our current political dynamic in Washington.  It’s not just that the President’s opponents oppose his outreach to Putin and Russia in a quest for political advantage – it’s far more than that.

For two years now I’ve been periodically writing about the obvious desire among the Democrat Party, most of the major news media and the warmonger faction among the Republicans in congress to actively seek a shooting war with Russia.  It is hard to grasp what the motivation behind this desire actually is, but there is no question have been viscerally opposed to any effort by President Trump to establish a more productive working relationship with the world’s only other major nuclear superpower.

This attitude and rhetorical dynamic came into focus when it became obvious that Donald Trump would be the GOP presidential nominee.  Given that Trump was the only candidate advocating for better relations with Russia, and that Putin was at the time still interfering in the affairs of the Ukraine, it would have made sense for the Pantsuit Princess and her amen chorus in the fake news media to develop counter talking points to that position.

But that’s not what happened.  What happened instead was the creation of an unending and steadily escalating drumbeat of rank hostility towards Russia from the same quarters of the Washington DC establishment that had just a few years before applauded the Coughing Crook for her juvenile “Reset Button” outreach to Putin and Russia.

This hostile clamor against any positive outreach towards Putin and Russia has now grown into claims of “treason” hurled at the President of the United States from noted Obama-era bad actors like John Brennan, James Clapper, Jim Comey and the Fainting Felon herself.  The leftwing rag Politico even published a piece on Monday openly advocating for the U.S. to declare war on Russia.  Breathtaking.

Hey, wait a minute:  Think about what other Russia-related events those people all have in common:

  • The “hacking” of the DNC servers, which the DNC (then run by the Clinton Campaign) refused to allow the FBI to properly investigate, prompting then-FBI Director James Comey to shrug his shoulders and say, “oh, ok.”; and
  • The Uranium One transaction, in which 20% of U.S. uranium reserves were sold to a Putin front Russian company in exchange for hundreds of millions of dollars flowing into the Clinton Foundation;

We now know that the Uranium One transaction was signed off on by much of the senior leadership of the Obama Administration at the time.  And of course, we know that the Clinton/Obama amen chorus in our fake news media ignored and even helped to facilitate the transaction with justifying coverage of it over the last 7 years.

Putin knows exactly what happened in both of those cases – is it any wonder, then, that all of these people would be horrified at the thought of President Trump holding a private meeting with Putin for 90 minutes in a neutral country?  Can we doubt that these people would gladly go to outright war with Russia in order to avoid real accountability for their actions?

This is the only explanation I can come up with for the years-long, outright advocacy for going to war with a country that has not attacked the United States in any real way – Russia has been meddling in U.S. elections for 50 years, so please don’t bring up their meddling in 2016 – and which possesses a nuclear arsenal comparable to our own.

This is not just “Trump Derangement Syndrome”, though that does play a big part in it.  More to the point, this is “Self-Preservation Syndrome” on the part of a pack of really bad people who have betrayed our country on such a grand scale that it is almost unimaginable.  If these seem like really desperate people to you, well, that’s likely because they are really desperate people.

Just another day in the truth will ultimately come out America.

That is all.

Jeff Sessions Holds all the Keys to the Mid-term Elections

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Note to America:  Dianne Feinstein is no longer far left enough for California Democrats.  – Yes, let that one sink in for a minute before you continue on.

Senator Feinstein, who has held her senate seat since 1992 and was the very liberal mayor of San Francisco from 1978 through 1988, was basically given a vote of no confidence by the executive board of her own political party in her home state on Saturday, as party delegates voted overwhelmingly to support her Democrat challenger in the November election.  For those unfamiliar with California’s odd voting system, candidates from all parties run in open primaries in June, and the top two vote-getters then face off in the general election.

In the June primary, the far-left Feinstein easily bested her far, far, far, far-left opponent, state assemblyman Kevin de Leon, winning 44 percent of the vote to his 12 percent.  But de Leon won the endorsement vote from the executive board members by a whopping 65 to 7 margin, with 28 percent choosing not to endorse either candidate.  Breathtaking.

I’ve been around a long time and I can’t remember any long-time U.S. senator receiving this kind of overwhelming rebuke from their own political party.  The only good news for Feinstein is that she’ll no doubt get 90+ percent of the vote from Republican and independent voters who will find de Leon even more radical than she is.  So she’ll most likely survive to hold her senate seat into her 90s (she’s 85 now), which is precious little comfort to normal people out here in flyover country.

Speaking of the November mid-term elections, I’ve had several inquiries about where I think things are headed, so now would be a good time for a mid-year update.

Those who followed me throughout the 2016 campaign will know that I believe the overall public mood is a far bigger and more important influence over the balance of power outcome of national elections than are the nitty gritty details that the inside-the-Beltway pundits tend to focus on.  This is a more prominent influence during presidential election years than in mid-terms, but it is still a major factor.

That belief is why I began telling my clients and readers in October 2015 that I believed Donald Trump would win the presidency.  The clear mood of the vast majority of the public in 2016 was for change – real, fundamental change in the direction of the country after our disastrous 8-year experiment with community organizer radicalism, which had corrupted every institution of our government.  Among all of the primary candidates in both parties, Donald Trump, by October 2015, was the only truly viable candidate offering real change.

So, even while micro-analysts like Nate Silver were giving Hillary a 97 percent chance of winning and most of the polls showed her holding big leads in the months leading up to Election Day, I held to the belief that the overall mood in favor of real, radical change would end up prevailing and Trump would become the next POTUS.  On the Sunday prior to Election Day, I predicted he’d win 311 electoral votes, overshooting his final total by five.

The overriding public mood this far in advance of Election Day, 2018 is more difficult to read.  Which, frankly, is good news for the GOP, because the absence of a clear public mood mitigates in favor of the status quo.

Thanks to the tireless efforts of the Democrat Party and its fake news media guardians, the public is more divided than at any time since perhaps 1860.  The President’s base of support has only grown more loyal and unshakable over the first 19 months of his presidency, and he now polls better among self-identifying Republicans than any of his predecessors.  But the radical leftist Democrat base of support has only grown more radical over the same period of time, making it very difficult to determine if the majority inertia among the electorate is for change or for preservation of the status quo.

Again, the lack of any clear indication that this will be a real change election also mitigates in favor of the GOP, which holds majorities in both houses of congress, and which is only defending 9 senate seats as opposed to 25 the Democrats must defend.

So, here’s my current thinking on the ultimate outcome:

If the election were held today, the Rs would retain control of the House – barely – and gain a bigger majority in the Senate, with maybe 54 or 55 total seats.  There would be no impeachment action on the horizon, and President Trump would be an overwhelming favorite to be re-elected in 2020.

But the election is four months away, and much can change between now and November. If November comes around and nothing has changed in the current status quo related to all the Obama-era bad actors, the election will go very badly for the Rs.

Right now, the GOP base is pumped up, but it’s only because of President Trump, not due to anything the Republican congress has accomplished.  The tax cuts are great, but they are also old news at this point, and voters in November are going to be asking what have you done for me lately?  Congress’s failure to act on Obamacare last year and the steadfast refusal by Paul Ryan and Mitch McConnell to really make a push for funding the border wall will be big issues this fall in the minds of GOP voters.  Should the Senate somehow fail to confirm Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court by Election Day, that also will be a huge negative for the Republicans.

There is also great and growing dissatisfaction among the GOP base with Attorney General Jeff Sessions and the lack of any real law enforcement action being taken against the myriad bad actors within his Department.  If we get to November and no one has been indicted, Rod Rosenstein still has his job, Robert Mueller is still indicting Russian ham sandwiches at strategic moments, Peter Strzok still has his security clearances, Andrew McCabe and James Comey are still walking around free and unindicted men, and Hillary Clinton still appears to be immune from the laws of the land, then GOP voter enthusiasm will fall through the floor.

If, on the other hand, November comes around and a bunch of indictments have been served on a bunch of these terrible people and maybe Hillary Clinton and John and Tony Podesta to boot, then the GOP will pick up net seats in the elections and possibly finish the increasingly-radicalizing Democrat Party off for a generation.

It is not an overstatement to say that the entire future of our country hinges on the real nature of Jeff Sessions.  Is he just another corrupt Washington, D.C. swamp rat?  Or has he, along with Michael Horowitz, John Huber and others just been biding his time, executing a plan that will result in the beginning of real enforcement actions following the issuance of Horowitz’s report on the abuse of the FISA process several weeks from now?

Good questions.  The time for finding out is growing short.

Just another day in Jeff Sessions is holding all the keys America.

That is all.

If Sessions and Horowitz really do have an end game, it’s time to get to it

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Hollywood continues its slow death spiral.  – Actress Scarlett Johansson became the latest victim in the left’s war on women on Friday, and hardly anyone noticed.  Johansson had been cast to play a transgender character in a film tentatively titled “Rub and Tug” which had been lined up to begin filming in 2019.  In taking the role, Johansson would have added her name to a long list of heterosexual actors who have played such roles in movies.

But the radical left LGBTQ movement decided to make an example of Johansson, taking to social media to protest the fact that the role had not been awarded to an actual transgender person.  The answer why is obvious to any thinking person:  Ms. Johansson is a name celebrity whose presence in the film would help ensure it would be profitable.  This is not exactly rocket science – it’s how the movie business works.

Without a name actress who would draw crowds to theaters in the role, it is in fact unlikely the movie will even be made.  But the activists would rather kill he film than see this extremely leftist actress get the role.

So how far are the activists willing to take this particular principle?  Will they demand the recasting of the role of the gay character Cam Tucker in the sitcom “Modern Family,” which has been hilariously played by heterosexual actor Eric Stonestreet since 2009?  And will they ultimately, for authenticy’s sake, demand that all hetero roles be played by non-gay actors?  If not, why not, other than the obvious answer that it would mean that certain prominent closeted actors would never work again?

While transgender actors complain that they can’t even get auditions to play heterosexual roles, killing film projects like this one seems like a pretty poor way of increasing their chances.  In announcing her withdrawal from the role, Ms. Johansson said “According to GLAAD, LGBTQ+ characters dropped 40% in 2017 from the previous year, with no representation of trans characters in any major studio release.”  Gosh, I wonder why?

How does Rod Rosenstein still have his job, Part 9,453. –   Infamous girlfriend of FBI Super Duper Agent and apparent disciple of Satan Peter Strzok, Lisa Page, was grilled behind closed doors in a deposition by the House Judiciary Committee on Friday.  Apparently, she offered up Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein as one of her sacrifices, at least if this tweet from Congressman Mark Meadows is accurate:

Back story:  On January 4, House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes reached an agreement that DOJ and the FBI would provide seven witnesses in the coming weeks to testify before Nunes’ Committee.  Of course, Rosenstein also laughably committed in this deal to provide the Intel Committee access to “all” documents relevant to its investigation, a commitment on which the Deputy AG has continued to stonewall.

Well, it turns out that Rosenstein also had no intention of providing the agreed-to witnesses, at least if Meadows’ tweet is accurate.  Which is no surprise, given that Rosenstein’s strategy all along has obviously been to keep the congressional investigations at bay until the mid-term elections have come and gone in the hopes that the Democrats will win control of the House, allowing Democrat committee chairmen to kill the investigations entirely.  Which they will do, make no mistake about it.

Meanwhile, reports cropped up again on Friday that Meadows and fellow Freedom Caucus leader Jim Jordan are leading an effort to submit impeachment filings on Rosenstein as soon as next week.  If such an effort had the buy-in from Speaker Paul Ryan it would be meaningful, but without Ryan’s support and commitment to whip the vote in its favor, it’s just one more futile gesture by members of the feckless and toothless Republican House majority.

You could see in their body language and facial expressions during their recent testimonies before the House Judiciary Committee that both Rosenstein and Strzok believe they are above the law and completely safe from any punitive action related to their behavior.

There are two competing bodies of thought that would explain these two apparently bad actors’ behavior and attitudes:

  1. Rosenstein has been working diligently behind the scenes with AG Jeff Sessions and DOJ IG Michael Horowitz to get at the truth – with Strzok as a cooperating witness who has been given immunity – and are planning to unleash hell at the real bad actors once the final Horowitz report becomes public, all with President Trump’s full knowledge and cooperation; or
  2. Rosenstein and Strzok know that Sessions is hopelessly corrupt or compromised and will never take any action against them, meaning this ongoing farce will just continue for another 2 or 6 years, until a new president can come into office and cover it all up.

I have wanted to believe scenario #1 above, and have even bought into it in some instances because it has seemed to make sense.  But the longer this all lingers on and the more of Rosenstein’s stonewalling and outright deception become publicly revealed, the less probable that first line of thought appears to become.

The news on Thursday that Strzok still has his FBI security clearances in place two weeks after Sessions publicly claimed they had been revoked doesn’t help much, either.

The bottom line is this:  If Sessions, Rosenstein, Horowitz and President Trump truly have been executing some grand Machiavellian scheme to ultimately bring all the Obama-era bad actors to justice, they’d better get to the end game very quickly.  Because if you’re in danger of losing people like me, you’re in danger of losing everything.

Just another day in this crap has gone on long enough America.

That is all.

Rosenstein and Strzok – the DOJ/FBI Tag Team of Corruption and Disgrace

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Hey, remember when the Department of Justice actually worked on things like prosecuting criminals?  Yeah, those days apparently are gone.  – As if his hostility to the President of the United States of America weren’t already clear enough, de facto Attorney General Rod Rosenstein sent out a memo to all  U.S. Attorneys in the country on Wednesday demanding that they suspend their current priorities in order to help him investigate not some criminal or enemy of the state, but President Trump’s Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.

In an email with the subject line reading “Personal Message to U.S. Attorneys From the Deputy A.G.,”  the Deputy AG asked each of the 93 U.S. attorneys to provide the names of not one, not two, but three members of their supposedly busy staffs “who can make this important project a priority for the next several weeks.”

So, it isn’t bad enough that Rosenstein has already dedicated the time of hundreds of people within DOJ and the FBI to help Special Counsel Robert Mueller in his never-ending fantasy-based witch hunt targeting the President of the United States of America.  Rosenstein now requires the time of another 279(!) DOJ employees to try to help congressional Democrats dummy up some sort of case against that Presidents nominee for the nation’s highest court.

To be clear, Kavanaugh has been around a long time and involved in a lot of different things, in the process establishing a long paper trail.  It is perfectly appropriate and necessary in any supreme court nomination for such a paper trail to be subject to rigorous review.  Such a review could certainly be accomplished by a tiny fraction of the number of people Rosenstein is demanding.  Dedicating 279 DOJ employees to the task smacks of a police state witch hunt.

Meanwhile, while the resources of his department continue to be redirected away from doing their actual jobs, where oh where is Jeff Sessions, who at least in name is the actual Attorney General?  A quick Google search shows he was up in Maine on Thursday, enjoying a little break from the heat and launching an “enforcement surge” targeting the opiod abuse problem.  So, at least he was, unlike his Deputy AG, working on something his department is supposed to be working on.  Awesome.

But why is Sessions letting the eternally problematic Rosenstein direct his department’s efforts related to the nomination of Kavanaugh?  Sessions’ stupid recusal from the fake Russia fantasy play does not in any way impact a supreme court nomination – why is he letting his deputy drain his department’s resources in such a stunning way on yet another witch hunt?

This is an intolerable, disgraceful and disgusting situation.  Rosenstein’s myriad abuses of his office will forever be a black eye to this nation’s history, and Sessions is the guy who has allowed it all to happen.  Unless something very dramatic takes place in the wake of the issuance of the final report from DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz in a few weeks, history will not be kind to Sessions, as he will be remembered as the AG who allowed the Deep State to perpetuate its existence.

Speaking of intolerable, disgraceful and disgusting situations, how about that Peter Strzok, huh? – The FBI’s Super Duper Agent of a Thousand Hats and Aspiring Latin Lover gave public testimony before the House Judiciary Committee on Thursday, and boy, was it a spectacle.

Having never before seen this scumbag in live action, I had pictured him in my mind as a smug, condescending, arrogant product of a privileged upbringing.  I imagined him as being the sort of guy who would have been the party planner in his college fraternity and then went onto a career in which he ultimately became promoted without merit to a position three levels above his competency simply because of which executives he knew and sucked up to.  Anyone who has spent time in the corporate world has known people just like this – I actually ended up having to work for a couple of Strzok clones during my own career.

And sure enough, there that exact person appeared on the nation’s television sets, smirking, sneering, blowharding false answers to members of congress who, unlike himself, were elected by the people to do their jobs.  He was caught in a series of blatant lies that will inevitably come back to haunt him, and in several other statements that conflict with sworn testimony offered by James Comey and other FBI officials.

So somebody’s lying, and given that every facial tick and shred of body language from this guy literally screams out “I AM AN ARROGANT, PSYCHOPATHIC, SHAMELESS LIAR”, the smart money is on Strzok.

If our country had anything resembling an honest national news media, yesterday would have been Armageddon for Strzok and really for the FBI in general.  But of course, the New York Times ran with a web-based story late Thursday afternoon with the hilariously false headline of “F.B.I. Agent at Center of Russia Probe TurnsTables on G.O.P.”  Guessing Strzok’s lawyers had pre-approval on that one.

So, while those of us who took time to watch some or all of Strzok’s disgusting performance live, or searched for real, honest coverage of it that can only be found at places like Fox News, the Daily Caller and the Wall Street Journal had our worst fears about Strzok’s true nature confirmed, most everyday Americans will hear literally nothing about this and still won’t even be aware of who this key figure in the utter corruption of the nation’s highest law enforcement agency is.

Like pretty much everything else going on at the DOJ and FBI today, that is an intolerable, disgraceful and disgusting situation, one that presents a real threat to our nation’s survival.

Just another day in where in the hell is Jeff Sessions America.

That is all.

Melania Trump trolls the media, media too dumb to figure it out.  Film at 11.

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

It’s just like that trash compactor scene from Star Wars, only R2D2 won’t be saving him. – The walls of the justice system closed in a little more on FBI Super Duper Agent and Aspiring Latin Lover Peter Strzok, as Attorney General let slip during an interview that hey, his security clearance has been revoked.  Note for the faint of heart:  This film does not have a happy ending for the former Texting Titan of the FBI.

Gosh, why would that be?  So, so hard to understand.  Oh, wait…  – A new poll from YouGov.org finds that public favorable view of the Federal Bureau of (fake) Investigation has dropped by 11 percentage points since February, as the details of the agency’s massive wrongdoings throughout 2016 and 2017 have made their way to light despite the best efforts of our fake national news media to keep them hidden.  The most disgusting part of the poll is that the FBfI’s most favorable ratings come from Democrats, who spent the 100 years prior to the inauguration of Donald Trump bashing the agency.  But hey, now they know it was nothing more than a tool of the Democrat Party trying to fix the election for the Pantsuit Princess, they love it.  It would be hilarious if it weren’t so sad for the country.

Speaking of polls, this whole fake border crisis isn’t working out too well for the fake news media and their Democrat wards.   A new poll from Rasmussen finds that fully 54 percent of likely voters blame the parents of these children for their situation (imagine that) and only 35 percent blame the government.  No doubt heads were exploding all over the headquarters of the DNC, CNN, the NYTimes and the WaPo after that poll came out.  This is not how this was supposed to go for them.  Not at all – not even close.

Democrats in Action! – Democrats on Tuesday:  “End family separation! End family separation!”

[Trump ends family separation]

Democrats on Thursday: “End family reunification! End family reunification!”

*sigh*

Melania Trump trolls the media, media too dumb to figure it out.  Film at 11. – The First Lady traveled to McAllen on Thursday to visit one of the facilities that is at the center of the latest episode of fake liberal outrage.  As she boarded Air Force One, all the fake reporters gasped in unison as they noted she was sporting a $39 jacket, on the back of which was the slogan “I don’t really care, do U?”

As if it were all a coordinated effort (note: it is), the entirety of the nation’s fake news media went immediately into deflection mode, ignoring the First Lady’s long, detailed visit with the children in the McAllen facility and her discussions with those who care for them, focusing instead on her fashion choice.  What does it mean?  Is she making a statement towards these poor, poor children?  Maybe she’s mad a her evil husband – that must be it!

All the social justice warriors on Twitter also went into an immediate rage, because, well, of course they did.  When one asked me “can you imagine what would be happening if Michelle Obama wore that jacket?” I responded “no, because I can’t imagine Michelle Obama ever putting on a $39 jacket.”

Several hours after the First Lady returned to Washington, we of course found out it was all an effort to tweak the fake news media’s collective nose, as the President issued the following tweet:

Hilarious.  Obviously, the White House strategy on this fake border issue is not just to let the Democrats and their fake media guardians wail away and reveal they don’t really give a damn about any kids, but to help them along by trolling them as the First Lady did yesterday.  While some might characterize that as callous, it is in fact entirely appropriate to the situation.

Think about it:  The outrage is false.  Pretty much every allegation leveled at the Trump Administration has been shown to be false.  Most of the images and video shown by the fake news media has been revealed to be from the Obama years, during which the media/Democrats never uttered a peep.  Even the little girl on the cover of Time Magazine has been shown to be a fake – she was never at any time separated from her mother.

The obvious next tactic the media/Democrats will be deploying today will be allegations that the children are somehow being “abused” by those caring for them.  By Monday, those allegations will also be proved to have been false, because this is what our fake news media does.

Given all of that, why should the Administration do anything other than taunt their opposition, and troll them into revealing their true nature and goals?  When literally everything about the opposition is fake, the opposition does not deserve a serious response.

And hey, as I write this piece this morning, President Trump has issued the following tweets:

Ok, I can stop now.

Just another day in now even Melania’s trolling the fake news media America.

That is all.

Note: A Conspiracy That is Slapping You in Your Stupid Face is not a “Theory”

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Take that, CNN and NBC!  – ABC News, desperate to gain its footing in the race to produce the fakest of all the fake news in the #fakenews universe, decided to just chuck it all on Wednesday and run news so fake that even some at CNN were embarrassed by it.  In the middle of the networks fake coverage of a real meeting at the White House, ABC’s chyron ran a blaring note claiming “Manafort Pleads Guilty to 5 Charges of Manslaughter”.

Obviously, Paul Manafort did not plead guilty to manslaughter or anything else for that matter, and so the obviously intentionally faked-up chyron message created a bit of a stir. ABC and its apologists – like Josh Feldman at Mediaite, tried to laugh it all off as a “malfunction” or a “glitch,” but it was obviously neither of those.  It’s hard to understand why ABC News thinks pulling such a stunt does it any good, other than gaining some temporary attention its fading newscasts are no longer able to garner, but pull the stunt they did.  Weird.

From our ICYMI File… – In case you missed the news on Tuesday, Starbucks announced it will be closing 150 of its corporate-owned stores across the country this year, most of them in “densely populated metro areas.”  This announcement comes bare weeks after the company announced its idiotic policy allowing anyone, anyone at all, to come in and hang out in their stores and use the restrooms regardless of whether they buy anything or not.

Oh, hey, guess where the homeless and vagrants and drug addicts tend to hang out in most of our large cities?  Would that be in “densely populated metro areas?”  Cause, meet effect.

Hey, it’s not a conspiracy “theory” when the conspiracy is standing there slapping you in your idiotic face. – Liberals who are not capable of making a cogent argument (that would be all liberals) have grown fond of labeling anyone who notes the reality that there was an anti-Trump cabal working within the DOJ and FBI throughout 2016 to fix the election and well into 2017 to attempt to hinder the duly-elected President of the United States as “conspiracy theorists.”

The term “conspiracy theory” did not even really exist in the American lexicon until the early 1950s, when then-CIA Director Allen Dulles began using it to demean anyone who alleged that the CIA had played a role in several coup d’etats in various third world countries.  Of course, those allegations were absolutely true, but the CIA’s many embeds in the national news media at the time were more than happy to deploy the tactic at Dulles’ bidding, and the tactic came in very handy following the assassination of John F. Kennedy as well. Documents related to that assassination released last fall 54 years after the fact reveal that, in November 1963, the CIA admitted to having more than 40 such media embeds working for it.

That was, of course, at a time in which our “national news media” consisted basically of ABC, CBS, NBC, the New York Times, the Washington Post, the Associated Press and United Press International.  Throw in Time, Life, Newsweek and U.S. News and World Report, and you’ve pretty much captured it all.

Now, fast forward 55 years, to 2018, and our exponentially-expanded media universe.  Then, recognize the enormous expansion of the number and size of the federal government’s intelligence agencies, including the counter-intelligence division of the FBI, where FBI Super Duper Agent and Aspiring Latin Lover Peter Strzok presided throughout the years in question, and played the lead role in basically every questionable investigation.

If the CIA alone had more than 40 operatives embedded in a media establishment that in 1963 essentially consisted of 11 major news outlets, think of how many such embeds our 18 or so intelligence agencies have active in such a vastly expanded fake news media universe.  The thought is literally breathtaking.

Given that likely reality, the fake news media’s coverage – or lack thereof – of the obvious massive conspiracy that was germinated at the highest levels of the Obama Administration (note that the “highest level” of any administration is the President himself), that we now know was formally authorized by John Brennan at the CIA, and was coordinated by the cabal within the DOJ and FBI not only comes as no surprise, it is exactly what one would expect from a compromised media establishment.  (Man, is that a great run-on sentence, or what?)

Indeed, one of the most fascinating findings of the report on the Clinton email scandal by DOJ IG Michael Horowitz was the careful documentation of more than 300 outright bribes made to a multitude of FBI personnel by fake news media outlets.  The IG report includes a great graphic which describes the incestuous bribe/influence network that existed between the FBI and various fake news media outlets throughout the faked-up Clinton probe.

And hey, it’s been just a little over a week since we discovered that a reporter for the New York Times was literally sleeping with a senior staffer for the utterly corrupt Senate Intelligence Committee so she could obtain classified information illegally.

So yes, there was a conspiracy, and there is no doubt about it.  Even worse, it is very likely that, between Rod Rosenstein, Robert Mueller and his gang of thugs, the anti-Trump conspiracy remains ongoing, though probably not for a whole lot longer.

Even worse than that for the health of our country, the fake news media are not innocent bystanders merely engaging in biased reporting on this conspiracy, they’ve been active participants in it and are still doing their best to cover it all up.

Now that, friends, is a conspiracy.

Just another day in it’s all going to come out in the end America.

That is all.
