James Comey Reaches Peak Teen Drama Queen

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Hey, lookey here – the 302 apparently exists after all! – Waiting until the very last possible moment, Robert Mueller and his gang of Clinton/Obama thugs finally, at long last, produced a document purporting to be the orginal FBI 302 form from the FBI’s entrapment interview with General Mike Flynn. The production of the key document comes just hours before today’s scheduled sentencing hearing, and the document is heavily redacted. Because of course it is.

Les is no more.:  Wait – what’s this? A big media company actually did the right thing in a massive sexual harassment scandal? This must be a work of fiction, right? No? It’s real? Go figure.

Yes, friends, this would never happen at NBC, MSNBC or CNN, but over at CBS Corp., the people in charge decided on Monday to terminate former CEO Les Moonves for cause in the midst of a massive sexual abuse scandal, denying him the $122 million severance package he would have otherwise been entitled to receive. That’s a big deal, one which no doubt sent waves of fear across senior management teams at big media companies everywhere.

Cool.

Teenage Drama Queen Update: Former FBI Director and current Teenage Drama Queen James Comey exited his second tense day of behind-closed-doors testimony on Capitol Hill and had this to say about the tattered reputation of the agency he “led” for several years:

“Director Comey, the FBI’s reputation has taken a big hit over the last year. Do you share any of the responsibility for that?” the [Fox News] reporter asked.

“No. The FBI’s reputation has taken a big hit because the President of the United States, with his acolytes, has lied about it constantly and, in the face of those lies, a whole lot of good people who watch your network believe that nonsense. That’s a tragedy.”

Congressman Mark Meadows, who questioned Comey in Monday’s hearing, responded very succinctly:

Exactly.  Let’s review just some of the reasons why the FBI’s reputation has taken hits in recent years:

  • Comey himself led a sham investigation into Hillary Clinton’s illegal email server;
  • Comey himself led an effort to illegally spy on the Trump presidential campaign and transition team;
  • The FBI revealed to be fully aware of and actively surveiling a series of Islamic terrorists and school shooters;
  • The utter failure of the FBI to conduct anything remotely resembling a competent investigation of the worst mass shooting in American history in Las Vegas;
  • The revelation of the texts of Super Duper Agent Peter Strzok and his mistress Lisa Page;
  • The FBI’s active support of the Gestapo tactics deployed by Special Counsel Robert Mueller;
  • The FBI’s resolute refusal to respond to 2 years of legal document requests issued by an array of congressional committees;
  • The FBI’s habit of “redacting” key passages from key documents solely to cover-up wrongdoing by FBI officials;
  • The repeated commissions of outright perjury before congressional committees by Comey, Andrew McCabe, Strzok and other FBI officials;
  • The firing and forced resignations of a broad array of senior FBI personnel over the past year, including McCabe, Strzok, James Baker and many others.

This list could honestly go on and on, but the point is clear: The reason the FBI’s former reputation as the nation’s premier law-enforcement agency is in tatters today is directly attributable to the Obama-era decision by Comey and his leadership team to stop enforcing the law on anyone associated with the Clintons or the Obamas.  Under Comey, and Robert Mueller before him, the FBI was turned into nothing more than the aggressive attack dog for the Deep State, and that is sadly the state in which it remains today.

White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders summed the day up perfectly.:

Why is Mueller Afraid to Produce the Original Flynn 302 Form?

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Why is Robert Mueller so desperate to keep the original Flynn 302 hidden?: Andy McCarthy, who teams with Victor Davis Hanson as the only two writers worth reading anymore at The National Review, has a piece out this morning in which he asks the single most key point in the effort to frame General Mike Flynn:  Where is the FBI’s 302 form from his January 24, 2017 “interview” with Peter Strzok and another agent?

In their most recent court filing submitted on Friday, Mueller and his team did present a “302” form to the judge in the case – the increasingly impatient Emmet G. Sullivan – but, as McCarthy points out, that form was compiled not from the interview with Flynn, but from an interview Mueller’s team conducted with Strzok in August of 2017, 8 full months after the entrapment meeting with General Flynn. FBI procedure requires agents conducting suspect or witness interviews to memorialize them in 302 forms immediately after they have been completed, not 2/3rds of a year later.

Mueller and his band of Clinton/Obama shills offer no explanation regarding why they did not produce the original 302 or where it is currently located. They appear to be trying to claim that the original document has mysteriously gone missing. Is that really true?

Let’s think this through: The utterly corrupt FBI agent Peter Strzok and another, more junior, agent – whose name is Joe Pientka, although the fake news media continues to pretend to not know his identity – conduct an entrapment interview of General Flynn on orders from then-FBI Director Jim Comey and then-Acting Attorney General Sally Yates. They tell Flynn that this is just a friendly visit, that he has no need for legal counsel to be present, and then proceed to do their best to entrap him in a process crime.

At the end of the interview, Strzok and Pientka look at one another, shrug their shoulders, and agree that Flynn was not lying, or that if he did misstate anything, it was not intentional. We know this to be the case because James Comey himself has confirmed it multiple times under oath before multiple congressional committees.

So, standing there with their big bag of nothing, the senior agent Strzok looks at junior agent Pientka and says something like “have fun spending the next two hours memorializing this bag of nothing in your 302 form,” and walks down the hall to fill in his boss – the utterly corrupt Andrew McCabe – on the day’s failed entrapment effort. Pientka files an honest 302 report on the meeting, and that’s where it all ended. Well, until May, 2017, when the utterly corrupt Rod Rosenstein appointed the utterly corrupt Robert Mueller to become the Special Counsel who would take on the task of building an impeachment case against President Donald Trump.

Mueller spends a couple of months casting about for some bit, any bit of evidence that someone, anyone in the Trump Campaign had indeed “colluded” with the Russians during the 2016 campaign. By August, he too is holding the same big bag of nothing that agents Strzok and Pientka were holding at the conclusion of their January entrapment meeting with General Flynn.

After a discussion with Strzok – who had been on Mueller’s staff in June and July – the two decide that Flynn, who was intimately involved in the Trump Campaign, holds the keys to their kingdom. Flynn had, after all, had a telephone conversation with his Russian counterpart in December 2016 at the behest of then-President-elect Trump. The call was nothing out of the ordinary – a get to know you kind of thing on behalf of an incoming President by that president’s future national security advisor – but it was something. Strzok and Mueller just had to find some hook they could use to start bullying Flynn into saying damaging things about Trump and his campaign.

So they go back to that January 24 meeting and Strzok says something like “hey, maybe that dang Flynn did lie to us after all,” and they call Pientka into the office. When Pientka arrives, Strzok and Mueller try to convince him to alter his original 302 from January.

But here’s the problem: Pientka is the rare non-corrupt FBI agent in the DC office, and he refuses to commit a federal felony by dishonestly altering his original 302 from the meeting. What to do?

Hey, no problem – it’s Peter Strzok to the rescue. Hell, this guy will lie about anything – dummying up a fake 302 form for the purpose of getting rid of President Donald Trump is an act of valor in his demented mind, as we have clearly seen from his thousands of text messages with his mistress, Lisa Page. So, Mueller’s people conduct an interview with Strzok, and voila! – the magic new 302 form from an interview conducted 8 months prior is created.

Much of this is conjecture, sure, but it is a scenario that fits perfectly with the facts as we know them publicly, and it explains so many things about this obvious frame of General Flynn.

For example, multiple congressional committees have been trying for more than a year now to have Agent Pientka come over to Capitol Hill and offer sworn testimony about his and Strzok’s meeting with Flynn.  But Rosenstein and FBI Director Christopher Wray have consistently blocked all such efforts. Rosenstein, Wray and Mueller simply cannot afford for that to happen.

One thing is certain: There was a contemporaneous 302 form created by either Strzok or Pientka immediately following their interview with Flynn. Comey and McCabe both have confirmed that fact in sworn testimony. Mueller appears willing to go to any lengths necessary to prevent Judge Sullivan and the American people from seeing what is in that original 302.

This is just one more reason why President Trump not only has an incentive, but an absolute public duty to declassify not just the original 302 in the Flynn case, but all the documents related to the Mueller Witch Hunt, and do it soon.

That is all.

President Trump’s War of Attrition vs. The Deep State

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Paris Burning Update:

Things got calmer on the streets of Gay Pareee this weekend, as 8,000 heavily-armored riot police became more efficient and effective with their use of tear gas, pepper spray and water cannons to placate the masses. Officials estimated the crowds of Yellow Vest protesters mounted to “just” 66,000 or so, about half of what they had to deal with last week, and by the end of Saturday had arrested only 168 souls.

This is what boy Prime Minister Emanuel Macron and his Climate Change enforcers call “progress.” It’s a form of “progress” that will be brought to America soon thanks to your Democrat Party, which never gives up on a good scam.

Speaking of Democrats never giving up on a good scam… – I give you Joe Biden.  Joe’s old.  He’s 76 and would be 78 on Election Day 2020. That’s a year older than Ronald Reagan – our oldest in-office President ever – was when his second term ended.  That’s old, for a serving president. No offense to anyone that age or older, but it just is.

So Biden and his team have been looking around for ways to, um, deflect attention away from the boss’s advanced, ummm, seniority, as it were. And, according to the Associated Press, they’ve come up with a bright idea: Let’s recruit young Beto to be Joe’s running mate in the primaries! I swear I don’t make this stuff up.

I suppose the strategy here would be to say, hey, sure Joe’s 77 years old, but Beto’s just 46, and if you add those up and divide by 2 you get 61 and a half! That’s pretty young, right?

In all seriousness, are voters faced with a candidate who will be well into his 80s before his first term is over going to be placated by the knowledge that, if something happens to Biden, his replacement would be a fidgety skateboarding guitar player with no real qualifications for the office? I’m not sure this is going to work, guys and gals. Matter of fact, I’m pretty sure it isn’t.

It’s a war of attrition now for President Donald Trump. – This was the week when the Deep State’s strategy to force President Trump from office became crystal clear: The plan is to open up so many different investigative fronts that he ends up throwing up his hands in frustration and resigning the office.

And the investigations don’t just target Trump – they target anyone doing a good job on his behalf as well. We lost a great Interior Secretary in Ryan Zinke this week thanks to this strategy, after DOI’s IG’s office – still occupied by Deep State loyalists – had opened up half a dozen different investigations into petty administrative matters the IG studiously ignored for 8 long Obama years.’

The shameful Democrat hack just elected to become New York’s new state attorney general announced this week that she plans to investigate every facet of Trump’s personal and business life, as well as every member of his family. Hey, remember when America used to be a constitutional Republic, and law enforcement officials had a duty to investigate crimes, not individuals? Yeah, the Democrat Party is changing all of that right before your very eyes. Are you paying attention?

This week we saw ex-Trump attorney Michael Cohen sentenced to prison for a variety of crimes that had literally nothing to do with anything remotely related to “Russia Collusion”- in fact, they had nothing to do with his work for Trump at all. Cohen pleaded guilty to things like tax evasion and some nonsense having to do with New York taxi medallions, and for the process crime of lying to investigators, but not to anything related to his work for Trump. Yet, our fake news media has spent the entire week pretending Cohen’s plea is going to get Trump impeached. It won’t.

This week also saw Russian lawyer Maria Butina plead guilty to various process and failure to file charges that again had literally nothing at all to do with Trump or his campaign. Yet our fake news media and their Democrat masters spent the entire week pretending her plea is somehow “proof” of “collusion.” It isn’t.

There’s much more news fakery going on here, but the plan is for the Democrats and the media to keep pounding this drum, day after day, week after week, hounding Trump and anyone loyal to him until he has no base of support surrounding him in the White House and his job approval numbers fall so low that he starts to lose the squishy Republicans in the Senate. At that point, the belief among those in the Deep State is that Trump will pull a Nixon and resign rather than face a potential 2/3rds vote in the Senate for his removal from office.

There are a few problems with this strategy: Richard Nixon did not have the loyal base of support among voters that Donald Trump possesses. Trump’s polling numbers remain at the same level Barack Obama commanded at this point his presidency despite the 95% negative media reporting on him and the withering daily assault of leaks and fake news planted by the Mueller team and other investigators and Deep State snakes.

Nixon also did not have the personal fortune that Trump has at his command, a fortune that allows him to lawyer up and fight all the myriad investigations the Deep State wants to throw his way. Finally, Nixon was not the bull-in-a-China-ship fighter that Donald Trump undeniably is.

But that fighter had better start fighting even more aggressively, and soon. He can start by declassifying all documents related to the sham entrapment case Mueller and his evil team mounted against General Mike Flynn. Mueller refused yet again to comply with Judge Emmett Sullivan’s order to produce the original 302 document from the FBI’s entrapment interview with Flynn that took place in January 2017. Mueller and DOJ officials were also revealed to have erased thousands of text messages from the phones of disgraced ex-FBI skunk Peter Strzok and his paramour Lisa Page last summer.

The President has a duty to declassify every document related to all of that, so that the public can clearly see the Gestapo-like tactics Mueller has been deploying against American citizens in his quest to bring down this presidency.

If DOJ IG Michael Horowitz is really going to produce a report on all the rampant abuse of the FISA process and spying on the Trump Campaign and Transition Team that took place throughout 2016 and 2017, he needs to get that produced posthaste. And what about John Huber, the Salt Lake City U.S. Attorney who Jeff Sessions claimed in early 2018 was conducting his own investigation into all of this? If Huber’s really been doing anything at all, it is long past time to be showing some results.

The Trump supporter base is incredibly loyal, but one senses it is becoming weary and frustrated at the Administration’s unwillingness to defend its President. It made some sense to hold off on doing anything big during the election season, and also to hold off through the Holiday season as well.

But things had better start popping on the President’s behalf shortly after the first of the year, or those polling numbers could well begin falling. President Trump himself has the biggest weapon in his own hands – declassification. Once he does that, the pressure on Horowitz and Huber would escalate considerably to get their own jobs done, assuming they are doing anything at all.

January 2 would be a great day to begin.

That is all.

Get Ready for the Coming Impeachment of Donald J. Trump

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Mueller is “closing in” – on what, no one seems able to say. – Last week was the week when Robert Mueller started “closing in”. That’s what everyone in our fake news media kept telling us, anyway, so it must be true, right? Well…ok.

Supposedly, if all the talking heads on CNN and MSNBC are to be believed – which they most certainly are not – the sentencing memo related to Michael Cohen and the court filing in Mueller’s case against Paul Manafort contain all sorts of damaging allegations related to President Donald Trump. They are, in fake media parlance, the smoking guns that, for the 10,457th time over the last 3 and a half years, spell the “beginning of the end for Donald Trump.”

All this impeachment giddiness had bug-eyed Adam Schiff talking about President trump serving prison time on “Face the Nation” and despicable Jerrold Nadler promising to shut down all investigation into Democrat wrongdoing during 2016 when he takes control of the House Judiciary Committee come January. It was like Democrat Party Mardi Gras all weekend.

The problem for the Democrats is, last week’s events don’t really mean what they want us all to believe they did. The Cohen sentencing memo, filed by the Justice Department’s Southern District of New York (SDNY), is all about campaign finance and playmates and porn stars and hush money supposedly paid to them during the 2016 campaign. The same attorneys in the SDNY who refused to prosecute Barack Obama for more than $2 million in illegal campaign contributions taken in by his 2012 campaign are now supposedly going to indict a sitting president for $280,000 in payments that can only be classified as “campaign contributions” via very tortured legal logic.

The SDNY attorneys face several problems here, chief among them being that Justice Department rules dictate that no sitting president can be indicted while he’s in office. D’oh!

Problem number two is that, even if these hush money payments can be classified as campaign contributions, the Candidate himself has the ability to contribute an unlimited amount of money to his own campaign. The U.S. Attorneys suddenly concerned about the “sanctity” of campaign finance rules say he failed to report those “contributions,” which would be a technical violation supposedly committed by a candidate who did not even know they WERE contributions.

You’re going to send a sitting POTUS to jail for that? Really?  Good luck with that.

Problem number three is that, if Donald Trump is re-elected to a second term, the 5-year statute of limitations on campaign finance violations will have expired in 2021, 3 years before he leaves office.

Now, will the craven Democrats in the House of Representatives try to use the SDNY’s tortured logic as a reason to impeach President Trump? Sure, they will, but in doing so they will have to explain why this is an impeachable offense but Obama’s massive violations were not. Good luck with that, too.

The Manafort filing is just another Big Bag of Mueller Nothing, the kind of which we have seen in myriad leaks and filings and ham sandwich indictments from his office for more than 18 months now. Nothing about the “collusion” fantasy, nothing supporting any potential charge of obstruction of justice, nothing supporting anything remotely related to what Mueller was supposed to be looking into. But it did provide a lot of fodder for talking head panels on CNN and MSNBC to assassinate the President’s character and argue for impeachment, which is exactly what it was intended to do.

There is no doubt that President Trump is a man of low moral character, especially when it comes to his conduct in his married life. There is also no doubt that pretty much everyone who voted for Candidate Trump was well aware of this when they voted for him. After two full years of screaming first about their “Russia Collusion” fantasy and then about their “obstruction of justice” fantasy, the Democrats and our fake news media are going to try to force Mr. Trump from office because he might have, maybe, sort of, potentially violated campaign finance laws to cover up affairs.

Make no mistake about it, there will be impeachment hearings beginning early next year, for the simple reason that the Democrat Party stands for nothing else at the moment. The Party’s candidates did not campaign on any policy agenda this year, other than doing nothing more to change the failed Obamacare law and doing nothing to change our failed immigration system. The Democrats have always been really big on doubling down on abject failure, after all.

So, that’s what the next two years of American history are going to be – a long, painful slog in which the Democrats and their fake news media agents do pretty much nothing but try to reverse the results of the 2016 presidential election. There will be no major legislation passed through congress, which is fine with me, given that about 90% of the un-American legacy of Barack Obama has already been done away with in one form or another.

There will be no real budget bills, as the nation goes back to the decade of Harry Reid, in which the government was funded by an ongoing series of continuing resolutions. There will be no more tax cuts – or significant tax increases – no real efforts to reform immigration or healthcare or climate regulations or anything else at the federal level as the Democrat House and Republican Senate play a 24-month game of policy chicken and do little other than raise money for the 2020 campaign.

At some point – probably mid-to-late-2019 – after a seemingly endless series of nationally-televised impeachment hearings by multiple House committees chaired by despicable creeps like New York’s Jerrold Nadler, the Democrats in the House will successfully “impeach” President Trump in a party line vote. Some time after that, the Republicans in the Senate will refuse to remove the President from office, again on a purely party line vote.

It will be an instant replay of 1999, only with the party roles reversed. Then the election campaigns will gear up and dominate the rest of 2019 and all of 2020, as the voters decide who to punish for the two-year fiasco.

It’s key to remember that, after impeaching Bill Clinton in 1999, the Republican Party paid dearly at the polls in 2000, losing their six-year House majority in the process. With President Trump’s public approval ratings holding stubbornly firm at pretty high levels for a president at this point in his first term in office, the Democrats pursue this impeachment strategy at their own risk.

And pursue it they will.  Because they are otherwise bankrupt as a Party.

That is all.

Meet the New Attorney General, Same as the Old Attorney General

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Paris Burning Watch:

Very predictable next step for President Emanuel Macron and his globalist government: Shut down the country’s Internet and other communications, as the government continues its goosestep towards outright fascist thuggery.

The government announced on Friday that it has deployed 89,000 (!) riot police throughout the country in preparation for today’s demonstrations by the “yellow vest” demonstrators, who are protesting the government’s planned implementation of a confiscatory carbon tax it claims will help meet France’s emissions goals under the Paris Climate Accords. The yellow vest demonstrations began as peaceful events a few weeks ago but have turned increasingly violent as they have inevitably been infiltrated by radicals from both the left and the right.

As I write this early Saturday in the U.S. there have already been more than 500 arrests made in Paris, as police began the day by using tear gas on the demonstrators around the Arc de Triomphe.  As Reuters reports:

“A police spokeswoman told reporters there were about 1,500 protesters on the Champs Elysees boulevard and authorities said 211 people had been arrested after police found weapons such as hammers, baseball bats and metal petanque balls on them.”

Somewhat hilariously, the Reuters report contains this passage a few paragraphs later:

“We will do all we can so that today can be a day without violence, so that the dialogue that we started this week can continue in the best possible circumstances,” Prime Minister Edouard Philippe said on French television.

This situation is completely out of hand at this point, deteriorating every day, and Philippe and Macron obviously have not the slightest clue about how to deal effectively with it. Thus, the most likely expectations should be for further efforts to crack down on the movement and the population at large. Because that’s what globalist/socialist governments do.

Ocasio Cortez Watch:

Speaking of things globalist/socialists like to do, this happened on Friday.:

Yes, it’s true – after Donald Trump Jr. re-tweeted a meme about our intrepid new congresswoman from one of the outer-boroughs of New York City (is it Queens?), the  mental midget tweeted a reminder to him that that was all, like, dumb and stuff because she was about to, you know, kinda, like have subpoena power and stuff like that.

Clearly an abuse of power, clearly a violation of congressional ethics and we can count on the Republicans in congress to clearly do absolutely nothing about it.  Because that’s who they are, and what they do – or don’t do, in this case.

Right on Cue, Meet our New Bush-ite Attorney General Nominee. – How ironic is it that, the day after late former President George Herbert Walker Bush was laid to rest in College Station, current President Donald Trump names William Barr, who served Bush 41 as Attorney General, as his nominee to become the AG again, 24 years later? Why, it’s almost as if one event led to another this week.

If President Trump’s thought was that the nomination of a man who had served the ex-President who the Democrats and their fake news media agents had praised all week long might be confirmed by the senate in a dignified and orderly process, well, he was kidding himself. All the demented creeps at CNN and MSNBC immediately flew into high character assassination gear, as did Democrat politicians who immediately began calling for Barr to recuse himself from pretty much everything if he is ultimately confirmed.

Despicable Vermont Senator, the relic Pat Leahy, had this to say:

“I have known Bill Barr a long time.  He has a long record in both the private sector and public service that needs to be thoroughly vetted by the senate. This includes recent, troubling comments about investigations of keen interest to the President who is nominating him.”

In other words, Barr has expressed thoughts about the Mueller investigation, and thus must recuse himself if he wants any Democrat votes in favor of his confirmation. Apparently, only a person who is basically a blind, deaf mute where Mueller’s Witch Hunt is concerned is any longer qualified to serve in the eyes of Senate Democrats.

Barr has a reputation in Washington as an upright and honorable man. As a reminder, so did Robert Mueller when he was nominated, and we now see clearly what that means and doesn’t mean. Barr is not someone who is going to come into the AG job and immediately restart investigations into Uranium One and all the myriad other Clinton/Obama wrongdoing.

On the other hand, assuming DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz and Utah U.S. Attorney John Huber really have been conducting real investigations of their own, Barr is also not someone who is going to come into the AG job and shut those down.

And the reality about Mueller and his evil minions is this: They have nothing real where President Trump is concerned and are systematically winding their fake investigation down and preparing their final report, which they intend to be a roadmap for impeachment by the new Democrat majority in the House. That’s all the Mueller effort ever was, and it becomes more and more obvious with each passing day. President Trump has no intention of interfering with Mueller and never did, something the Democrats and fake news media appear incapable of comprehending.

What Barr represents to President Trump is an extremely well-qualified and safe pick for the job.  In the end, when all the posturing by creeps like Leahy is said and done, Barr will end up with the support of all 53 Republicans in next year’s U.S. Senate, and support from just enough Democrats to get over the 60 vote bar needed to be confirmed to the job.

One other key thing to keep in mind about William Barr is that he served in a Bush Administration that built many miles of steel wall along our Southern border, and paid for it from the Defense budget, which is perfectly legal and proper once a president makes a finding that it is necessary for national security. Why President Trump has failed to go this route is anyone’s guess – perhaps he just wanted to give Paul Ryan and Mitch McConnell every opportunity possible to get their jobs done – but assuming Barr is confirmed, Trump will have an AG who understands the President has full authority to go down that road.

Just food for thought.

That is all.

Kamala Harris is not Ready for Democrat Nomination Prime Time

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

A little better due diligence seems in order here. – Comic actor Kevin Hart will never be remembered as the best or worst host of the Academy Awards ceremonies, but he will be remembered has the host who never got to actually host the show.

Hart accepted the gig on Tuesday, but then gave it up on Thursday after it was revealed he had sent out tweets several years ago that were insulting to gay folks.  This action shows the Academy Awards at least have some standards for their hosts to live up to, but that those standards only apply to the insulting of people in certain protected classes.  This is no surprise given that the event is run by leftists and that is how leftists conduct themselves in their daily lives as well.

Meanwhile, over at MSNBC, host Joy Ann Reid, found several months back to have been guilty of exactly the same insensitive Twitter activities in which Hart engaged, still has her gig.  And so does Chris Matthews, who was revealed several months back to be a serial harasser of women in the workplace.

Dang, MSNBC – when you have lower standards for behavior than the Academy Awards, you really, truly suck as an organization.

More perjury opportunities, coming right up! – Former FBI Director and current aspiring Teenage Drama Queen James Comey will be testifying before the House Judiciary and Oversight Committees up on Capitol Hill today.  Unfortunately, the Republicans who insisted on his coming up to lie to them yet again seem to be woefully – and typically – disorganized, and divided on what they actually want to question him about.

Some want to ask more about the Clinton email fake investigation that Comey dummied up in 2016, others want to focus on the whole “Russia collusion” fantasy, and nobody appears to be in charge. So, it will be another wasted opportunity to edge closer to the truth, in all likelihood. Maybe that’s why the Rs insisted the hearing be held behind closed doors.

Byron York, meanwhile, has published a terrific list of 10 suggested questions the Rs might ask Comey about his role in the entrapment of General Mike Flynn. Forcing the Drama Queen to answer those questions would either be very revealing and damaging to him, Peter Strzok and Robert Mueller, or force Comey to commit more perjury – in other words, a win/win situation. Sadly, we can be about 98% sure no one on the Republican side will bother to read the piece, or ask these questions in their last chance to get at some truth before the Democrat majorities take over in January and start sweeping all the Clinton/Comey/Mueller wrongdoing under their very lumpy rug.

What a waste.

From our You Seriously Cannot Make This Stuff Up Files:

The Girl Isn’t Ready. – Over the last 32 years I’ve written many times about the unarguable fact that, to win the Democrat Party’s presidential nomination, a candidate must prove to be an especially accomplished and shameless liar. From Michael Dukakis to Bill Clinton to Al Gore to John Kerry to Barack Hussein Obama to the Pantsuit Princess, the nominees the Democrat Party has offered up to the American people over the last three decades reads like the murderers row in the grand pantheon of deceptive history.

Democrat voters just love to be lied to. As my hero Walt Longmire would say, “It’s a simple fact.”

Enter Kamala Harris, about whom there has been so much talk that she could become the Democrats’ next flag-bearer. Folks, she isn’t nearly good enough to get it done. One of her top aides resigned this week when his $400,000 settlement of a sexual harassment lawsuit several years back finally made the news, and all Sen. Harris could think to do was claim she didn’t know anything about it.

Now, that’s an obvious lie – how, after all, could the boss remain unaware for years that one of her top subordinates was a sex harasser? – but it is neither a creative nor convincing lie, and Democrat voters demand creative and convincing liars.

Think about it: Al Gore has made himself a near-billionaire by mounting a massive propaganda campaign, complete with not one, but two movies, over the last 20 years to support his lies about “climate change.” Hell, Bill Clinton literally reinvented the meaning of the word “sex” to support his lies about Monica Lewinsky. The Pantsuit Princess made up so many different lies about her illegal email server that she finally just lost track of them and needed Comey to use half of the DC office of the FBI to help her cover it all up.

Folks, those are the kinds of lies that qualify someone to become the Democrat Party’s nominee for the presidency. A simple denial, like the one offered by Senator Harris on Thursday does not, after all, entertain the Democrat masses, and the Democrat masses must be entertained.

Unless she gets a whole lot better at this real fast, we can pretty much write Kamala Harris off as a serious contender.

This also happened on Thursday:

Paris Burning Watch:

A new poll out this week shows boy Prime Minister Emanuel Macron’s approval among the French public now down to a microscopic 18%. Remember, this is the guy all the #NeverTrump nitwits were praising just a year ago as the real kind of leader America needs in the presidency.

Meanwhile, the approval rating for President Donald Trump (I still never tire of typing those three glorious words) remains at 50% in the current Rasmussen survey.

As the #NeverTrump flagship publication, The Weekly Standard, teeters on the brink of going out of business, there is a lesson to be learned in all of this. But you can bet that TWS editors Bill Kristol, Stephen Hayes and all of their #NeverTrump Nitwit army will fail to learn it.

That is all.

Mueller is Evil, B**ch Fight on The View, Paris Still Burning, Creepy Porn Lawyer Gone – All in One Day!

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

“Ok, listen up. Here’s the plan: Strzok falsifies the 302s from his interview with Flynn. Then we bully him for months, raid his home, threaten his family, get a false guilty plea from him. And then…we let him off. Pure evil, right?” – Right. American Gestapo Chief, er, ‘special counsel’ Robert Mueller sent his 12 month overdue sentencing memo for General Mike Flynn to the judge in the case on Tuesday, and guess what? It calls for a fine (because ruining him financially just isn’t enough for Mueller and his evil minions) and this:

“Given the defendant’s substantial assistance and other considerations set forth below, a sentence at the low end of the guideline range—including a sentence that does not impose a term of incarceration—is appropriate and warranted.”

We should all be happy with the prospect of an American who has served this country like General Flynn possibly avoiding jail time in this fiasco. But every American, no matter how mindlessly filled with hatred against President Donald Trump they might be, should be outraged that Flynn spent the last two years being put through this un-American, Nazi-like process by Mueller and his evil minions.

It’s an utter, damnable disgrace.

Wait. In 2016 he told us that the Pantsuit Princess was the most qualified person EVER. – Joe Biden, on a book tour like seemingly everyone else on earth, told an audience of multiples of two in Missoula, MT that “I’ll be as straight with you as I can. I think I’m the most qualified person in the country to be president. The issues that we face as a country today are the issues that have been in my wheelhouse, that I’ve worked on my whole life.”

No word if he went on to admit that he had been consistently wrong about all of those issues he’s been working on his whole life, but the odds are against it.

Also, why didn’t any of the “reporters” present think to ask the ex-VP why it is that, if he has been working on these issues his whole life, they all still persist today? But hey, asking that question would have required curiosity and integrity, so obviously it did not get asked.

*sigh*

Paris Burning Watch:

Yes, the “yellow-vest” protest movement that has been burning the streets of Paris for the last two weeks has won a temporary reprieve from the confiscatory carbon tax that the socialist government of Emanuel Macron planned to impose on January 1 in its fool’s effort to “do something” to fight “climate change.”

But only for six months. The French should not kid themselves this is any sort of permanent victory.  The quotes from French Prime Minister Edouard Philippe in this Reuters story are telling:

Prime Minister Edouard Philippe said anyone would have “to be deaf or blind” not to see or hear the roiling anger on the streets over a policy that Macron has defended as critical to combating climate change.

“The French who have donned yellow vests want taxes to drop, and work to pay. That’s also what we want. If I didn’t manage to explain it, if the ruling majority didn’t manage to convince the French, then something must change,” said Philippe.

“No tax is worth jeopardizing the unity of the nation.”

He warned citizens, however, that they could not expect better public services and lower taxes.

“If the events of recent days have shown us one thing, it’s that the French want neither an increase in taxes or new taxes. If the tax-take falls then spending must fall, because we don’t want to pass our debts on to our children. And those debts are already sizeable,” he said.

In other words, over the next six months Macron and Philippe plan to “explain” the confiscatory tax plan designed to make it too expensive for working class French citizens to drive cars or run air conditioners by threatening them with massive cuts to the country’s social services and programs targeting the working and middle class. These cuts would do nothing to fight “climate change,” but the hope is that they will do much to frighten the public into accepting the carbon tax as a less unpleasant alternative.

This is classic leftist government bullying, along the lines of “the beatings will continue until morale improves.”

One spokesman for the “yellow vest” protesters responded to the temporary tax suspension by telling a reporter, “We are being taken for fools.”  Why yes, yes you are.

Meanwhile, from the world of #NeverTrump #Nitwittery…

#NeverTrump nitwit stalwart Max Boot had this to say about Macron back in 2017, and it is glorious:

That’s quite the take, there, Max.  Holy crap.

Speaking of climate change…: If you’re still worried about that U.S. Climate Assessment that was released the day after Thanksgiving, you should take 7 minutes to read this:

Bjorn Lomborg is a real climate scientist, but he’s a social outcast among his peer group because he chooses to tell the truth about sham reports like this one. Again, it’s a very easy read that only takes a few minutes, but it thoroughly exposes how the authors of this report – and our fake news media –  attempted to defraud the American public.  Again.

Read it.  You’ll be glad you did.

Seriously, somebody help me out here…:

This one’s rated PG-13, but it’s hilarious…:

Creepy Porn Lawyer watch:

Don’t go away mad, Creepy Porn Lawyer, just go away…

Man, what a loss that is, right?  Whew.

Fascism is on the March all Over the Globe, and America is no Exception

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

RIP, George Herbert Walker Bush. – I was awake in the middle of the night when I heard about the passing at the age of 94 of former President George H.W. Bush, just eight months after the death of former First Lady Barbara Bush. I laid awake thinking of what to say about it all. I didn’t agree with him about some things, did agree with him about others, but let’s just leave the politics to others, because I’m not going to say anything negative about such a gracious man who was an institution in my favorite city of Houston, and served his country with honor and valor in World War II.

I literally ran into President Bush and the First Lady at a reception at the Johnson Space Center in Pasadena 26 years ago, and almost got arrested for it. I was walking along talking with a couple of friends, not looking where I was headed when the Bush’s suddenly emerged from the gift shop and I bumped right into him. A couple of Secret Service guys properly rushed in and started walking me and my friends away, but the President just laughed, called them off, and then – as was typical of Mr. Bush – spent about five minutes chatting us up before the agents convinced him to move along.

We’ll hear hundreds of stories like this over the next several days – seems like half the residents of Houston have a story like it to tell – because that was who this particular President was in his personal life. In the end, regardless of what anyone thinks about how he went about it, he leaves behind a lifetime of service to his country, in the process compiling a resume as impressive as anyone in our nation’s history, and that is something to respect and admire.

Rest in Peace, Poppy.  You deserve it.

NPR jumps headlong into the newsfaking business. – Ok, NPR was already there to some extent, but this week they showed they’re serious about it. The news fakers over there smeared Donald Trump, Jr. on Friday, running with a fake story and then refusing to properly retract it and issue a real correction.

The story, published early Friday morning, falsely alleged Trump Jr.’s testimony before congress about a short-lived plan to build a Trump Tower in Moscow several years before the 2016 elections conflicted with that of Michael Cohen, who plead guilty for lying to congress over the matter earlier in the week. But a reading of the transcript of that committee hearing – a transcript that NPR itself was quoting from – very quickly and easily showed that Trump Jr. had said nothing at all that was in any way untrue.

NPR let the story linger out there in the ether of the Internet for five long hours until, late on a Friday afternoon, after all the other fake news media outlets had had a chance to roll it into fake stories of their own, they finally issued a semi-correction, but left the original piece still sitting out there basically unchanged. This is despicable, inexcusable behavior, something we’d expect from CNN or the New York Times.

Apparently, that’s where the people in charge want to take NPR. What a sad day.

This is what creeping fascism looks like. – In the second week of December, representatives from all over the world will meet in Marrakesh to approve and commit their countries to something called the “International Compact on Migration.” As you can see from watching the video below, the goal of the compact will be to make criticism of mass migration…wait for it… a HATE CRIME punishable with prison time:

As the writer notes, the U.S. will not have anyone in Marrakesh thanks to President Donald Trump, and will not become a party to this fascist compact. But Canada will, and you can bet most of the fading European semi-democracies will be there as well. These international compacts are not binding, but their provisions do end up working their ways into the laws of the signatory nations like cockroaches eating their way into your kitchen baseboards.

Here’s the lesson: If the 2016 election had gone the other way, President Pantsuit Princess would have her emissary there under orders to be the first signatory to this completely anti-democracy compact.

Frightening indeed.

Here’s what a headlong rush into fascism looks like. – But hey, if you want to see fascism already in full force here in the United States, here you go:

The rest of your fake news media studiously ignored this huge story, which should not surprise anyone, since the whistleblower in question was in possession of documents damaging to the Pantsuit Princess and Special Counsel Robert Mueller. The documents in question relate to the Uranium One scandal, in which both Mueller and the Fainting Felon were heavily involved, and to the Clinton Foundation.

The whistleblower, a poor schlub named Dennis Cain, had done his duty to the country, turning the documents over to a congressional committee investigating both matters. He was assured by both the committee and by DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz that he was doing so under the auspices of the Intelligence Community Whistleblower Protection Act. After his client delivered the documents to Horowitz, Cain’s lawyer says he was assured by Horowitz that an assistant would hand-carry them over to the congressional committee.

The FBI agents who showed up at Cain’s home allegedly told him he was in possession of “stolen government property”, and, after Cain had turned the documents and his personal computer over to them, spent another six hours ransacking Cain’s home. This is Gestapo behavior.

The lesson here? These whistleblower protection laws mean nothing if you’re blowing the whistle on someone named Clinton or Mueller.

Hey, what the hell is Acting Attorney General Matt Whitaker doing in his new job, anyway?

That is all.

Progressivism is a Dangerous Mental Disease

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Oh, hey, we’re prosecuting people for lying to congress now? –  Former Trump lawyer Michael Cohen pleaded guilty to a count of lying to congress on Thursday, becoming the 7th person in our nation’s entire history to be prosecuted for this particular crime.  Yes, you read that right – the 7th one.

This of course is just a continuation of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s campaign of intimidation and abuse of power in his fake investigation into the Democrat/Media “Russia Collusion” fantasy play. This abusive process has already bullied General Mike Flynn into a guilty plea on a process crime and is now focused on fringe players like Jerome Corsi and Roger Stone.

As the great Mollie Hemingway points out in a piece at the Federalist this morning, Mueller and his cronies like Jim Comey have a long history of trading in this sort of bullying of witnesses into admissions of process crimes in order to claim scalps.  It’s well worth the 5 minutes it takes to read it – truly eye-opening, in fact.

And if you’re thinking, hey, maybe next Mueller will go get known congressional perjurers Comey, James Clapper and John Brennan, well, stop living in that dream world, because Mueller is a guy who never targets members of the deep state club, in which he is a lifelong member.

Ocasio Cortez Watch:

No?  Neither can I. – Paul Ryan ended his 20-year career in congress on Thursday. Can you list his major achievements?

First, the Social Justice Warriors came for Frosty the Snowman, and we did nothing. Then they came for A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving, and we did nothing. Now, they’re coming for Rudolph the Rednosed Reindeer:

*sigh*

Progressivism is a very dangerous mental disease.  But then, you already knew that, didn’t you?

Speaking of mentally-diseased progressives… – Who can forget yesterday, when top aide to and spokesman for The Pantsuit Princess, the completely deranged Philippe Reines, admitted he doesn’t wear pants when he appears on television, and is damn proud of it. We know this because he was caught on tape as he rampaged through the halls of the Fox News studios yesterday after losing yet another on-air debate with a conservative counterpart.

I swear I don’t make this stuff up.

 

Reines responded with a tweet, because of course he did:

Oh.  Well, then, that makes it all better.

*sigh*

Progressivsim has also become dangerously synonymous to anti-Semitism, in case you haven’t noticed. – CNN decided it had to sever its long, close ties to one of many, many, many progressive paid contributors, Marc Lamont Hill, on Thursday, after Hill had made an inflammatory anti-Israel speech at the United Nations that the Anti-Defamation League declared to anti-Semitic.

In his speech, Hill called for a “free Palestine from the river to the sea”, a term that is commonly used by Hamas and other Muslim terrorist groups.  Opposition to Israel’s very existence and blind acceptance and promotion of radical Islam and Sharia law have become major tenets of the Progressive cult over the past decade. It is simply reality that you cannot be an accepted part of the Progressive “in crowd” and not hold what are undeniably anti-Semitic views.

This is a mental disorder, plain and simple, and a very dangerous one. Its belief system dominates today’s Democrat Party and our national news media, and it works every day to brainwash the public at large. It’s fun to make fun of Progressives – I do it here at the Campaign Update each and every day – but it is vitally important that we “normals” out here in Flyover Country recognize these people for what they are and take them very, very seriously.

Because they basically believe everything the Nazis believed, and have many more means at their disposal for getting their hateful messages to the public. The next time we elect one of them to the presidency, things are going to get very, very ugly.

That is all.
