The Great Turning of the “Russia Collusion” Tide Continues

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

News you won’t see reported on CNN – Just so you know, your President of the United States of America donated his second quarter salary ($100,000) yesterday to a project that helps rebuild military cemeteries.

Hey, remember all those media-generated rumors that Chief of Staff John Kelly was fed up with the President and going to resign? – Yeah, those were fake.  The White House announced yesterday that President Trump had asked Kelly to commit to staying on through 2020, and that General Kelly has agreed to do so.

This move was intended not only to signal stability in the White House ranks, but to emphasize to the fake news media that the President has no concerns about being caught up in their “Russia Collusion” fantasy or of being impeached by a Democrat congress.  Awesome.

Today’s Required Viewing – Last night, CNN’s fake newsman Anderson Cooper had dimwitted never-Trumper Max Boot on a panel with America’s premier expert on Russia, Prof. Stephen Cohen, to discuss U.S. relations with that country.  The result is five minutes of Cooper and Boot being utterly decimated and made to look like a couple whining children by a vastly superior intellect.  Ever watched your cat toy around with a helpless grasshopper for an hour before finally killing it?  It’s like that.  Just.  Like.  That.

Watch it here.  You’ll be glad you did.

Your Fake News Media in Action! – The fake news media is really running out of scandals to dummy up.  This morning, all the talking heads and fake reporters are attempting to make a big deal out of the President’s claim at his Tampa, Florida rally last night that “you have to show an ID to buy groceries.”  Your fake news media is contending that claim is false, and “THE PRESIDENT’S A LIARRRRRR!!!!!!!!”

Funny, though, I waited for what seemed like an interminable amount of time at the local Albertson’s on Monday as the lady in front of me sllllllooooowly wrote a check for her tab, after which the checker asked her for her driver’s license, which the lady then slooooowwwwwwllllly dug out of her purse.  Which of course is exactly the process that the President was referring to.

So who’s lying?  It’s not hard to figure out.

More news you won’t see on CNN – As you no doubt know by now, since it’s pretty much the only story the fake news media really focused on the last couple of days, the trial of Paul Manafort in Virginia has gotten underway.  While everyone at CNN and the rest of the fake news media continues to claim this is all about their Russia Collusion fantasy play, it is in fact not about Russia or Manafort’s role in the Trump campaign at all.  In fact, is so NOT related to either of those subjects that Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s crack team of Clinton/Obama hacks has actually instructed their witnesses to avoid mentioning the T-word.

Yes, that’s right:  the hacks running the “investigation” that’s supposedly designed to prove the Trump Campaign “colluded” with Russian agents to influence the 2016 election are actively instructing their witnesses to avoid that particular subject entirely.  Which is not really surprising given that the charges of tax evasion and bank fraud in the case are over Manafort’s dealings from a decade ago.  You couldn’t make this stuff up if you tried.

Oh, hey, that’s not supposed to be happening, because Blue Wave or something. – A new pair of senate race polls show that the media’s effort to revive its whole “Blue Wave” narrative is a bit premature.  In Nevada, where Democrats are just absolutely certain they’ll knock off unpopular GOP incumbent Dean Heller, a new Suffolk poll has Heller leading his challenger by 1 point.  In Florida, where Democrats are just sure their slimy incumbent Bill Nelson will easily retain a seat that was not supposed to be up for grabs, a new Mason-Dixon poll has GOP candidate Rick Scott leading by 3 points.

There is no “Blue Wave” building, folks.  It just isn’t there.

The great turning of the “Russia Collusion” tide continues. – Eight days ago, the Campaign Update detailed the belief that the July 21 release of the FISA warrant filings by Tom Fitton at Judicial Watch would come to be remembered as the event that heralded the great turning of the tide in the whole Trump/Russia collusion fantasy the Democrats and their media guardians have been using to divide the nation for two years now.

Since that piece was written, we’ve seen ex-Director of National Intelligence James Clapper tossed his former boss Barack Obama under the bus and we’ve seen Rudy Giuliani casually toss out the fact that prosecutors and the White House are in possession of dozens of recordings of 2016/17 phone calls between ex-Trump lawyer Michael Cohen and reporters/media executives.

Hey, remember Tony Podesta?  You know, the brother of John Podesta, the spirit cooking chairman of the Hillary Clinton campaign?  The high-powered DC lobbyist who mysteriously shut down his practice, fired all his employees and disappeared from public view last November when his former business dealings with Paul Manafort started making the news?

Yeah, that Tony Podesta.  Now comes this little bit of news, quietly rolled out by the hacks at NBC on their low-traffic website:  It turns out that Mr. Podesta, along with former lobbying partners Vin Weber and former Obama White House Counsel Greg Craig have for months now been under investigation by U.S. attorneys working out of the Southern District of New York.

Oh.

The rumor that this investigation had been initiated was first reported way back in November, but then quickly quashed by a fake news media desperate to focus solely on reports negative to President Trump.  But now that the tide is clearly turning in the whole “Russia Collusion” fantasy play, NBC suddenly felt the urge to “update” its previous reporting on this little matter.

The real fun is going to come after DOJ IG Michael Horowitz issues his upcoming FISA abuse report, and all the fake news hacks at NBC and the rest of the #fakenews universe start figuring out what U.S. Attorney John Huber and his 400+ staff of attorneys and investigators have been up to out in Salt Lake City since last summer.  That’ll all start taking place in late August/early September, just when the mid-term election campaigns all get started in earnest.

The only “wave” building in this country is the turning tide in the Russia Collusion fantasy play.

Just another day in the bad guys are losing America.

That is all.

All Deep State Cabal Roads Eventually Lead to Peter Strzok

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

It was a dirty job, but somebody had to do it. – Texas Congressman and former state Appeals Court Justice Louie Gohmert published a devastating criticism of ex-FBI Director Robert Mueller on Tuesday.  Those of you who still believe that the Witch Hunter in Chief is some sort of sterling individual with an unassailable background of defending truth, justice and the American Way should take half an hour out of your day today and read it.  It will disabuse you forever of those silly notions.

I was already aware of most of the despicable corruption in Mueller’s background, but one item I had not been aware of until reading Gohmert’s piece was the “5 Years Up or Out Policy” he implemented while FBI Director.  This policy required that, “after an FBI employee was in any type of supervisory position for five years, he or she had to either come to Washington to sit at a desk or get out of the FBI.”

This idiotic policy mirrors policies used in the private sector by giant corporations as a means of passively-aggressively keeping their workforce younger and less expensive by encouraging older, more expensive employees to resign or take demotions in place rather than being forced to change job locations.  In practice, corporations see the money saved by forcing younger workers into mid-level management positions before they’re really qualified outweighing the loss of institutional knowledge.

But at the nation’s premier law enforcement agency, this massive loss of experience and institutional knowledge and – perhaps most importantly – historic case knowledge was devastating.  For Mueller, Gohmert speculates that the most satisfying aspect of the policy was that it robbed the agency of more experienced agents who are naturally going to be more likely to question the judgement and authority of senior FBI management.

It also resulted in juvenile delinquents like Super-Duper Agent Peter Strzok and Attorney Lisa Page being thrust into positions that were well above their competence or maturity levels.  This juvenilization of the FBI made it much easier for Barack Obama and Eric Holder and Loretta Lynch and James Comey to come in and utterly corrupt what had become an organization filled with yes-men-and-women.

Again, regardless of your opinion of Mueller, go read the piece.  You’ll be smarter for having done so.

Cause, meet Effect. – Speaking of Super Duper Agent Peter Strzok, here’s a great practical example of how Mueller’s efforts to juvenilize the agency, having thrust this emotional midget (as clearly demonstrated by his 50,000 texts with his mistress) into a senior position in the FBI’s counterintelligence division, rendered the Agency more vulnerable to corruption.

We’ve long known that Strzok was one of the agents who interviewed General Mike Flynn in an effort to entrap him into lying to the FBI; we’ve long known that Strzok was smack-dab in the middle of the sham investigation into Princess Pantsuit’s illegal email server; we’ve long known that he played a role in misleading the FISA court into issuing a warrant to spy on the Trump Campaign; in fact, at pretty much every turn in the scheme to fix the 2016 election and then to force Donald Trump from office, Strzok’s name just keeps turning up.  Yesterday, it got even worse.

In a terrific piece at RealClearInvestigations, Paul Sperry reveals that Super-Duper Agent Strzok was also involved in constructing the daily intelligence briefings for then-President Barack Obama.  But it’s not just that he was involved, but that he was in fact hand-selected by then-CIA Director John Brennan to serve as the intermediary for information flow between Brennan and ex-FBI Director and current Teenage Drama Queen James Comey:

A source close to the House investigation said Brennan himself selected the CIA and FBI analysts who worked on the ICA, and that they included former FBI counterespionage chief Peter Strzok.

“Strzok was the intermediary between Brennan and [former FBI Director James] Comey, and he was one of the authors of the ICA,” according to the source. [emphasis added]

So, what’s the big deal?  The big deal is that Brennan was obviously using the extremely compliant and malleable Strzok to control the information Comey received, and what ultimately got to the President of the United States of America.  Comey’s been running around the country claiming “I don’t know” about all sorts of things that took place under his watch during this period of time, and in many instances those denials are no doubt true because Brennan, through Strzok, made sure he didn’t know.

Brennan’s use of Strzok in this role also potentially resolves this burning question:  Why were Page and ex-FBI General Counsel James Baker jettisoned from their demoted positions a few weeks ago while Strzok has been kept in place?  All three have obviously been serving as cooperating witnesses with the ongoing investigations by DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz and Salt Lake City U.S. Attorney John Huber since last fall – so why were Page and Baker released from their in-house purgatory while Super-Duper Agent Strzok remains sheltered in place?

The answer now seems obvious:  Only Strzok has direct knowledge of the entire information flow on all the DOJ/FBI shenanigans during and following the 2016 campaign, all the way up to the office of the presidency.  So he’s not quite done yet.

The great irony in all of this is that Mueller, the guy whose idiotic policies literally created Super-Duper Agent Peter Strzok, is now running the sham investigation designed to deflect the media’s and public’s attention away from the monster that he himself created.  If you were still wondering why Rod Rosenstein specifically chose Mueller to be his Special Counsel, well, now you know.  Mueller not only knows where all the bodies are buried, he literally created them.

Just another day in all roads lead to Peter Strzok America.

That is all.

Mueller’s Big Problem: He Keeps Drawing Judges Who Have Read the Constitution

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Tired of all this Winning yet? – There has been much cause for optimism lately as Special Counsel Robert Mueller and his evil band of Clinton/Obama hacks have repeatedly run into trouble when their cases must finally be heard in federal court.

Mueller’s people most famously had to endure a lecture from Federal Judge T.S. Ellis on May 4 when the judge lambasted them for basically lying to the court in an effort to claim their case against former Trump Campaign Manager Paul Manafort has anything to do with the Special Counsel’s charge to investigate the Democrat/Media-constructed Russia Collusion fantasy.  Their day before Judge Ellis became even worse when he demanded that they produce the memos from Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein that laid out the scope of their investigation, and do so by this coming Friday.  The oily Mr. Rosenstein has fought tooth and nail to keep those memos confidential, on the specious grounds that they contain “classified” information.  Oops.

The Mueller team had another major stumble in court the very next day, when Federal Judge Dabney Friedrich denied their motion for a delay in their absurd case against the Russian firm Concord Management.  Concord is one of the 13 Russian entities that Mueller and his evil minions indicted back in February in a transparently dishonest effort to show their investigation has at least some tenuous connection to the whole Russia Collusion fantasy play.

To make matters even more Keystone Cop-ish, one of the Concord-related companies indicted by Mueller’s band of aspiring circus clowns, Concord Catering, did not even exist at the time the Mueller team claims it was engaged in social media shenanigans.  Oops.

The catch in issuing those indictments, of course, was that the Mueller minions never expected to have to prosecute any of their specious charges, because they assumed none of the accused would actually show up in a U.S. court voluntarily.  But Concord showed up, demanded the Court enforce their constitutional right to a speedy trial, and Judge Friedrich ordered the case to move forward.  Oops.

Mueller’s case against former Trump National Security Advisor General Mike Flynn is also hanging on by a thread at this point.  It has become increasingly obvious over the six months since Flynn entered his guilty plea to lying to the FBI that Mueller’s evil minions withheld exculpatory evidence that would likely clear Flynn of the charge.  The tide in this case began to turn when it was taken over by Federal Judge Emmet Sullivan, who is well-known for his disdain for prosecutors who mislead the court.  Oops.

The developments in all three of these cases clearly demonstrate the utterly dishonest nature of the Mueller “investigation.”  Mueller’s operation is not an “investigation” at all:  It is in fact the witch hunt that President Trump has repeatedly alleged it to be.  Yesterday marked the one-year anniversary of Mueller’s baseless appointment by Rosenstein, and in all that time Mueller and his ever-expanding team of witch-hunters have uncovered exactly zero evidence that anyone in the Trump Campaign or transition team colluded with any Russian to influence the 2016 election outcome.

The series of court setbacks are all very encouraging for those non-Democrats and non-fake journalists who have realized all along what a sham the entire Mueller enterprise has been.  But we all need to take a little breath here and realize that all of these encouraging developments have come about largely due to the luck of the draw.  The fact is that to this point, Mueller has suffered some very bad luck in terms of the judges who have been assigned to his cases.

Although a Clinton appointee to the federal bench, Judge Sullivan has long been well-known as a judge who forces both sides to adhere firmly to the rules of evidence and repect for the process.  The case against General Flynn appeared to be a done deal under the original judge assigned to the case, Rudolph Contreras, an Obama appointee to the federal bench.  Contreras was forced to recuse himself from the case in early December when it was publicly revealed that his is a FISA judge who likely signed off on one of the FISA warrants that gave the FBI authority to spy on the Trump Campaign in 2016.  Contreras had no problem allowing Mueller to just do as he pleased.

Judge Ellis is a Reagan appointee.  Judge Friedrich is a Trump appointee.  Both judges have, inconveniently for Mueller and his evil minions, actually read the Constitution and hold a healthy respect for it.  Had Mueller drawn Obama appointees in the Concord or Manafort cases, he’d likely not be having any problems in either case.

It’s key to note that judges are assigned to these cases on a random draw basis.  Thus, to this point, Mueller has been extremely unlucky, given that there are more Clinton and Obama appointees populating the Virginia and Washington, DC federal bench – where Mueller’s grand juries are convened – than there are Reagan, Bush and Trump appointees.

We can’t count on that luck to continue.  At some point Mueller will draw an Obama judge, and any notion of due process and constitutional protections for the defense will fly right out the window.  Just something to think about as this mess keeps moving ahead.

Just another day in let’s hope Mueller’s bad luck continues America.

That is all.

The Hillary Clinton Excuse Generator Doll Humiliates Itself in India

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

[Ok, it was actually Hillary Clinton who humiliated her own self in India, but seriously, someone needs to manufacture a Hillary Clinton Bobblehead Excuse Generator Doll.  Just pull the string and it spits out one of 100 excuses for losing the election.  You’d sell a billion of them, promise.]

The Pantsuit Princess was in the news on Monday for rolling out yet more excuses for why she lost the presidential election in 2016.  If you thought she had already blamed everyone else in the United States of America for her failure except for herself, boy, were you wrong.

Speaking to an audience in India, of all places, where the great majority of the population is poor, uneducated and unproductive, the Coughing Crook blamed her loss on people who are poor, uneducated and unproductive.  Oh, and they were all racists, too.  No kidding:

“There’s all that red in the middle, where Trump won. Now, I win the coasts, I win Illinois, Minnesota, places like that. But what the map doesn’t show you is that I won the places that represent two-thirds of America’s gross domestic product. So I won the places that are optimistic, diverse, dynamic, moving forward, and his whole campaign, Make America Great Again, was looking backwards. ‘You don’t like black people getting rights, you don’t like women getting jobs, you don’t want to see that Indian-American succeeding more than you are, whatever your problem is, I’m going to solve it.'”

Oh, but it gets better.  The 100% self-absorbed, 0% self-aware Fainting Felon, who has spent much of her adult life claiming to be a champion of women’s rights, went on to claim that any woman who voted for Donald Trump did so only because their husband or their boss told them to do so.

Then, as if to prove beyond all remaining doubt (could there really be any at this point?) that she was indeed the very worst candidate for any elective office in American history, the Grasping Grifter proceeded to stumble down the steps leading out of the venue, despite being held up by two men.  We can expect her to blame the incident on the two men, who no doubt told her to stumble, a demand that she, as a mere woman, had no ability to resist.

Never stop talking, Hillary.  Please, never stop.

The House Intelligence Committee announced Monday evening that it has concluded its year-long investigation into allegations that the Trump Campaign “colluded” with Russia to influence the 2016 elections, and found zero evidence to support the claims.  Combined, the three major network newscasts devoted less than 1 minute of coverage to that bit of news.  If this surprises you, you probably get your news from the evening network newscasts.

San Fran Nan stammered through a condemnation of the Committee’s move, slamming Speaker Paul Ryan for not keeping the investigation going into perpetuity.  Because, of course, the Democrats’ goal whenever there is a Republican in the White House is to always have myriad fake investigations into fake scandals going simultaneously.  This is especially true when GOP policies are producing things like jobs and economic prosperity.  It’s the Democrat playbook, right there on page 359.

The Democrat playbook also demands that they and their myriad fake journalist press agents continue to demonize Committee Chairman Devin Nunes (Low-IQ Maxine Waters carried out that task on MSNBC Monday night), and that bug-eyed Adam Schiff produce a minority report filled with classified information, which the administration will have to heavily redact, giving the Democrats and the fake news media the excuse to scream “coverup!”  Yes, it’s tiresome, yes, it’s incredibly dishonest, but what do you expect Democrats to do, focus on policy?

Hah!  That’ll be the day.  Focusing on policy got deleted from the Democrat playbook way back in 1992, when Bill and Hillary got elected to their co-presidency.  It will never return, trust me.

Speaking of fake news outlets, economic prosperity and jobs, the fakest #fakenews outlet of them all, CNN, just keeps getting faker as time goes along.  For years, CNN had kept an updated online “jobs tracker”, which provided monthly updates about the number of jobs added or lost by the U.S. economy during the George W. Bush and Barack Hussein Obama administrations.

But updating the tracker has amounted to just too much good news for President Donald Trump over the last year, as the Trump economy has kept adding new jobs at an accelerating pace.  So, the fake journalists at CNN just couldn’t take it anymore, and decided at the first of the year to stop updating the tracker.  That is sad, pathetic and hilarious all rolled up into a tight little fake news ball.

Just another day in the Democrat playbook America.

That is all.

Mueller’s Attempted Coup d’etat Has Begun to Unravel

  • Bloomberg, just off the heels from having to retract a piece of fake news earlier in the week, has the fake news piece of the day up again this morning.  This one, titled “Mueller’s Investigation Just Got Some Insurance”, speculates that golly, that evil ol’ Donald Trump can’t fire Mueller now because, well, Mike Flynn plead guilty to lying,” or something.  Of all the fake “it sure will be hard for Donald Trump to fire Mueller now” pieces that have infested the fake news media since last March, this one may be the topper.
  • Let’s recap:  Eight months into Mueller’s sham investigation, President Donald Trump (I still never tire of typing those three words) has never given the slightest indication that he has any intention at all of firing Robert Mueller.  Oh, plenty of people think he should – I advocated that he do so back in April, as it became obvious Mueller was stacking his staff with a bunch of Clinton/Obama hacks – but neither the President himself nor anyone on his senior staff has ever uttered a word that would indicate there has been any serious consideration in the White House of firing the Special Witch Hunter, er, Counsel.
  • Never let reality get in the way of a good story. – Yet, the fake journalists at the fake media outlets keep churning out pieces like the one at Bloomberg today.  We’ve seen them from the WaPo, the NYTimes, CNN, Reuters, the Associated Press, and on and on and on.  Presumably, today was just Bloomberg’s turn in some pre-determined fake media outlet rotation.
  • Frankly, I think what we have here is a serious case of projection on the part of these fake journalists.  They all know, deep in their subconscious, that the Mueller witch hunt is illegitimate.  They’ve known from the beginning that the whole “Russia Collusion” was a fantasy, at least as it applies to the Trump people, and that Rod Rosenstein had no real justification for appointing a special counsel in the first place, unless it was to investigate the actions of the Clinton campaign.  So they keep churning out these pieces speculating that Trump is planning to dump Mueller, because, in their heart, they know Mueller – and Rosenstein – should be fired.  They both desperately need firing, just as some evil people and criminals just need killing.  Therefore, the President must be thinking about doing so, right?
  • Look at what else we have found out over the past month:  1) that the whole fake “Trump Dossier” that was compiled through collusion with agents of the Russian government was bought and paid for by the Clinton Campaign and the Democrat National Committee; 2) that it is very likely that that fake “Dossier” was used by Agent Strzok during the campaign as justification to obtain a FISA warrant to spy on the Trump campaign and, after the election, the Trump transition team; 3) that senior Obama officials illegally “unmasked” members of the Trump camp hundreds of times as they were spied upon; 4) that Agent Strzok and former bi-polar FBI Director James “Leakey” Comey conspired to exonerate Hillary Clinton from any wrongdoing in her email scandal months before Ms. Clinton and other witnesses had even been interviewed in the investigation; and 5) that the DOJ Inspector General’s office has for months been conducting a broad-ranging investigation into all of this, and will be issuing its findings early next year.
  • If you doubt that that IG investigation is serious, read the following passage from Thursday’s testimony by FBI Director Christopher Wray:  “I think of the Inspector General’s investigation as de novo in one sense, in which that it’s objective, arms length, no skin in the game, if you will. But you’re right, the Inspector General is not second guessing prosecutorial decisions and things like that. However, the Inspector General is looking at the very important question of whether or not improper political considerations factored into the decision making. If he were to conclude that’s what happened, then I think at that point were we’re in a situation were we have to assess what else might need to be done to unring that bell.”  [emphasis added]
  • That answer was provided in response to a question about what the FBI is doing to investigate all the obvious shenanigans that Comey and Strzok were pulling with their sham investigation into the Clinton email scandal.  When the Director of the FBI speculates in an open hearing that he might have to “unring that bell”, i.e., re-investigate the obviously false conclusion that the Pantsuit Princess did nothing wrong, it means he thinks there is a high likelihood that he will indeed be going down that road in the near future.
  • The bottom line here is this:  The Mueller “investigation” has been irrevocably revealed to be nothing more than a political hit job, a slow-rolling coup’ d’etat designed to un-do the results of a duly-conducted national election in the United States of America.  It is not just an assault on the Trump Administration, it is an assault on our entire democracy, sponsored by the Clinton camp, holdovers from the Obama Administration and the embeded “deep state” bureaucracies.  The fake journalists in the fake news media understand all this, if only subconsciously, and so they keep churning out these “Trump Can’t Fire Mueller Now!” pieces because they know that Mueller and his little toady Rosenstein, need firing.
  • Meanwhile, as the fake news media obsesses over the Russia Collusion fantasy play, President Trump sits in the Oval Office, systematically reversing the entirety of Barack Obama’s anti-American legacy, almost unnoticed and barely opposed.  He sees no reason at all to fire Robert Mueller or Rod Rosenstein, because, hey, you should never interrupt your opposition when they are in the process of self-destructing.

Just another day in Mueller’s unraveling coup d’etat America.

That is all.

Mueller’s Gestapo Tactics Only Reinforce The Reasons Why Trump Won in 2016

  • This stuff is why Trump is President. – If nothing else good comes of it, Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation is serving as a stark reminder to all Trump voters of why they voted for him.  The President himself reminded the nation on Monday morning that, while General Mike Flynn has been indicted for making false statements to investigators, Hillary Clinton was awarded a free pass by former FBI Director James Comey in July 2016, after she had made a raft of false statements during her FBI interview.  This morning, the Daily Caller reminds us that Clinton’s two senior aides, Huma Abedin and Cheryl Mills also gave heinously misleading testimony to FBI investigators, again with no consequences.
  • Of all the myriad reasons why Trump voters decided in 2016 that the DC Swamp needed draining and Trump was just the guy to do it, this kind of selective application of the law was probably reason #1.  Robert Mueller and James Comey obviously believe that America has a bifurcated legal system – one system for the hundreds of millions of ordinary American citizen rabble out here in flyover country, and another for members in good standing of the Ruling Class, like Hillary, Huma and Cheryl.  This makes perfect sense to Mueller and Comey, since they are the de facto henchmen for that Ruling Class.
  • Those of you who are wondering why it is that the voters in Alabama appear to be set on sending Roy Moore to the U.S. Senate in spite of all the women accusers arrayed against him, it’s mainly because they know that his opponent, Democrat Doug Jones, would go to Washington and become just another reliable lapdog for the Swamp rulers.  These voters know that, whatever Moore may have done back during the Carter and Reagan Administrations, he plans to go to DC to help Trump clean the damn place out.  There’s really no more to it than that.
  • Speaking of Mueller’s absurd Special Counsel “investigation”, it appears now he has completely abandoned any effort at all to investigate the Democrat/fake news media invented fantasy of the Trump camp “colluding” with Russia to influence the election.  Writing in the National Review, Andrew McCarthy, himself  a former federal prosecutor, believes that the Flynn plea deal means that Mueller’s grand strategy now is to build an obstruction of justice case against the President.
  • Given that the President really can’t be prosecuted for obstructing justice, since, as Harvard Law Professor Alan Dershowitz pointed out on Fox News on Monday, he is the chief law enforcement officer of the United States, Mueller’s new focus means he is not working to actually bring charges against President Trump.  Rather, he is working to build a case for impeachment by congress.
  • If that’s really the strategy from the Special Counsel’s office, it simply points up how critical the 2018 mid-term congressional elections really are.  If American voters award control of either house of congress to the Democrats, then our country will literally become paralyzed for two solid years as the hyper-partisan Dems do literally nothing but try to impeach a sitting President for “crimes” that simply do not exist.
  • Another big leftist hope making the rounds of the internet currently is that Mueller may be trying to build a case against Trump for violating the Logan Act, for asking Flynn to make contact with Russia while he was still President-elect.  Here is the relevant text of the 1799 Logan Act:
  • “Any citizen of the United States, wherever he may be, who, without authority of the United States, directly or indirectly commences or carries on any correspondence or intercourse with any foreign government or any officer or agent thereof, with intent to influence the measures or conduct of any foreign government or of any officer or agent thereof, in relation to any disputes or controversies with the United States, or to defeat the measures of the United States, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than three years, or both.
  • Now, here’s why the Logan Act, in its 218 year life, has never, not one time, resulted in a prosecution of anyone:  If you take that text literally, John McCain alone would have been found guilty of violating the Logan Act half a dozen times since Trump took office, and probably 50 times during the presidency of George W. Bush, as McCain has made a frequent habit of making speeches in foreign lands that are highly critical of U.S. foreign policy, but only during Republican Administrations.  Liberal hero Ted Kennedy wrote letters to Soviet Union leaders, actively seeking their intervention in the 1984 elections against Ronald Reagan.  On and on and on this list could go.
  • If Mueller really is working on a Logan Act case, then everyone on the White House should be breaking out the champagne and celebrating, because that cat won’t flush.
  • The bottom line here is that the whole “Russia Collusion” fantasy play is officially dead.  By mounting his incredibly biased, highly-selective “investigation” in such a public way, Robert Mueller is only reinforcing support for President Trump among those who voted for him in 2016.  Mueller has now replaced Mitch McConnell as the official poster child for the movement out here in flyover country to clean out the DC Swamp.  If the President fired him tomorrow, there is not a single Trump supporter at this point who would bat an eye about it, because they know who the bad guy in this fantasy play really is.

Just another day in Ding, Dong, Russia Collusion Is Dead America.

That is all.

Trump Is President, Hillary Isn’t. Be Thankful For That.

Today’s Campaign Update

  • Given that it’s the day before Thanksgiving and The Campaign Update will be taking tomorrow off, it seems like a good time to list some of the many things I’m thankful for in the world of politics and public policy.
  • The first one is easy:  I’m thankful that Hillary Clinton isn’t the president.  It’s bad enough that she remains in the public eye, still doing everything she can to destroy our nation’s democracy, still cloying and grasping in a desperate effort to remain politically viable, but she isn’t president, and the nation is safe from that prospect for at least another 3 years.
  • Second, I’m thankful Donald J. Trump is the President.  Thankful for the roaring economy his roll-backs of Obama regulations have created.  Thankful for the record-high closes in the stock markets on almost a daily basis.  Thankful for his refusal to bend to the will of the fake news media or buy into the dictates of political correctness.  Thankful for how crazy he drives liberals each and every day.  Thankful for his refusal to bow to the leaders of other countries.  Thankful for the sense of class and style he and First Lady Melania Trump have returned to the White House.  Thankful to have a President who is simply willing to celebrate Christmas again.  Thankful that he Never.  Stops.  Tweeting.
  • Third, I’m thankful to the leaders of the Democrat Party, such as they are, and their utter failure to learn a single damn lesson from their humiliations in the 2016 elections.  Rather than take those humiliations as an opportunity to moderate their policies and clean the corruption from their ranks, the Democrats have instead doubled down on the leftist radicalism that has taken them from the clear national majority they enjoyed as recently as 2010 to a shrinking, minority regional party centered in large cities along the East and West coasts.  Their party leadership remains a motley collection of corrupt fools, their anti-Trump and anti-middle American rhetoric grows more shrill with each passing day.  Cool.
  • Fourth, I’m thankful for the fake reporters, fake editors, and fake talking heads who infest the fake national news media.  Like the Democrat Party they all loyally serve, they have learned nothing from their own rejection in 2016, their double standards, biases and outright fabrications so blatantly obvious that no thinking person believes anything they have to say. Which is good for America, since there is no national mainstream media outlet that can be trusted anymore.
  • Fifth, I’m thankful to James Comey and Hillary Clinton for their invention of the whole “Russia Collusion” fantasy play.  No, really, I am, despite the abuses of power that are obvious in the Robert Mueller investigation.  But that special counsel investigation is, intentionally or not, leading inexorably to the final downfall of not President Trump, but of Bill and Hillary Clinton.  Without that special counsel, we would not now know that it was the Clinton Campaign and the DNC that funded the fake Trump Dossier.  Without that special counsel, we would still be in the dark about the role James Comey’s FBI played in all of that as well.  Without that special counsel, the whole Uranium One scandal would still be a secret buried in the bowels of hidden Justice Department records.  Yeah, I’m thankful for Russia Collusion, because that fantasy has led to the revelation of so much reality, with much, much more to come.
  • Finally, I’m thankful for all the women and former child actors who have been brave enough to come out in recent weeks and out so many monsters in Hollywood, the fake news media, and now in politics.  Intentionally or not, they are  showing America that the country’s leftwing institutions have long been cesspits of sexual depravity and abuse.  This is a reckoning that has been a long time coming, and is likely just getting started.
  • I hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving.  The Campaign Update will return on Friday.

Just another day in so much to be thankful for America.

That is all.

Nobody Nails Democrat Sleaze Like Donald Trump

Today’s Campaign Update 

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

  • Thursday’s under-the-bus tossing of Hillary Clinton by long-time Clinton sycophant and Democrat political hack Donna Brazile is just the latest sign that the Democrat Party has finally had enough of the Clintons.  After a quarter century of defending and deflecting and prevaricating about Clintonian corruption, it is suddenly becoming ok, almost trendy, to say negative things about the woman who has brought nothing but shame and destruction to what was once a clear majority national party, but is now a dying, minority, regional, amateurish political operation.
  • Ms. Brazile’s admission that the Clinton Campaign conspired with Debbie Wasserman-Schulz and other DNC leaders to rig the party’s primary contests against Bernie Sanders is also a clear indicator that there is much more Clinton/DNC-related sleaze about to ooze out into the public domain, especially when one considers that Ms. Brazile herself played a significant role in that rigging process.  With her “tell-all” book, Brazile is just getting a jump on the oozing.
  • This is a first.  The Clintons have always slunk through scandals in the past by convincing everyone around them that they’ll all be okay so long as they just deny everything and accuse the opposition of the same unethical behavior.  It’s the Saul Alinsky strategy of “deny, deflect and project.”  Hey, it’s always worked, given that their agents in the fake news media would always circle the wagons around them and refuse to investigate or report on any wrongdoing in any real way.   But now the code of silence has been broken, and with scandals whirling all around her, The Most Corrupt Woman In America has to be wondering which of her sleazy hacks will become the Family’s next Fredo.
  • Finally, Ms. Brazile’s admissions tell us that, once again, Donald Trump was right.  He spent all of 2016 telling us that the Democrat primaries were rigged against the Commie, Bernie Sanders, to which all the fake journalists and Democrat hacks like Brazile called him a liar.  How many times do we have to see this process play out, in which Trump makes an assertion, the Democrats and their fake media agents respond by calling him a liar, and then we find out Trump was absolutely right before we all realize that if Trump accuses the Democrats of some bad behavior, it’s a very safe bet he’s telling the truth?
  • The clearest current example of this is the “investigation” by Special Counsel Robert Mueller, which was supposedly about allegations that the Trump campaign somehow “colluded” with Russia to influence the 2016 election, but which has very predictably boiled down to the issuance of indictments of several functionaries on various process violations.  Failure to disclose certain political activities; tax evasion; money laundering; lying to investigators about what day a meeting took place – process violations like this, essentially unrelated to the original allegation, is what Special Counsel investigations always end up hanging their hat on.
  • From the beginning in 2016, President Trump has unwaveringly told us that the allegations that his campaign colluded with the Russians are a fantasy, an excuse for losing made up out of whole cloth by the Clintons and their media supporters.  To this point, a full year after this fantasy play began, there has still not been even a smidgen of evidence revealed that indicates any wrongdoing in this regard by anyone related to the Trump campaign, even by those who were indicted on Monday.
  • On the other hand, what we have found out is that the Clinton Campaign and the DNC clearly did collude with the Russians during the campaign, shelling out millions of dollars to fund the phony “Trump Dossier” that was compiled largely with lies provided by agents of the Russian government.  If Trump is right as he usually is, we will also no doubt soon discover that James Comey’s FBI used this fake Dossier as its basis for seeking a FISA warrant that allowed it to put members of the Trump campaign under surveillance while the election was going on.
  • It is key to remember that that surveillance then led to the hundreds of probably-illegal umasking requests by various high Obama officials in that Administration’s final months.  Thus, if things go true to form, the truth is going to ultimately be revealed that it wasn’t just the Clintons colluding with the Russians, it was the Obama Administration as well.
  • There is absolutely no reason to think that things will not go true to form here.  Every time he has alleged Democrat-related sleaze in the past, it has always eventually been revealed that Donald Trump was 100% correct.  If you’re still sitting there thinking that this case will turn out to be any different, well, you should probably think again.

Just another day in Trump always turns out to be right America.

That is all.

The Great Unwinding Of The Russia Collusion Fantasy Has Begun

Today’s Campaign Update 

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

  • Well, now we know, without any lingering doubts at all, why the Democrat Party and their facilitators in the national news media responded so viciously and, frankly, insanely to last November’s election results.  I mean, we basically knew that The Most Corrupt Woman in America was engaging in all sorts of shady stuff during the campaign – that’s just her nature.  She’s utterly corrupt, pathologically dishonest, and felt completely entitled to become the 45th president of the United States after being jilted at the altar by Democrat voters in 2008.  She totally would rather lie and cheat than win an election the old-fashioned way, which totally explains why she’d spend millions of dollars having a fake dossier made up on her opponent than bend so low as to actually go to Podunksville, Wisconsin to campaign.
  • So we knew in our hearts – and I speculated last year – that she probably paid for the Trump Dossier, but we just didn’t know it for sure.  Now we do.  Question answered.
  • And we knew that there had been all sorts of lawlessness going on during the Obama Administration – the IRS scandal, the utter corruption in the Justice Department and the FBI, Hillary Clinton’s using her position at the State Department to massively enrich herself by selling influence, the sham investigation by James Comey related to the Clinton email server, the shipping of $1.6 billion in U.S. and foreign currency to the terrorist supporting regime in Iran, all the patently unconstitutional executive orders related to immigration and Obamacare, and on and on and on.
  • We knew it was all going on, but had no law enforcement officials willing to investigate and prosecute any of it, and no honest reporting on any of it from the fake news media who all thought Obama was the second coming of John F. Kennedy, so we weren’t sure of all the details.  Now we know many of the details, with much, much more to come.
  • Speaking of more details, Obama’s Director of National Intelligence, James Clapper, let another key detail slip on CNN yesterday morning as he was being fake interviewed by the hopelessly vapid fake news host Alisyn Camerota.  Mr. Clapper, in the middle of one of his confused, rambling answers, told Ms. Camerota the stunning news that the Obama Administration had opened a “counterintelligence investigation” into the Trump campaign before James Comey got ahold of the fake Trump Dossier that had been financed by the DNC and the Clinton campaign.  Ms. Camerota is so hopelessly dimwitted that she just let that amazing tidbit of information pass without asking a followup question.
  • A real, actual journalist would have heard that answer and said, “wait, what?  Did you just tell our audience that a sitting president of the United States of America was investigating the likely nominee of the opposition party before his FBI got hold of that dossier?  When was that investigation opened?  Why was it opened?  On what factual information did the FBI think it needed to investigate one of President Obama’s political opponents?”  Yeah, none of those questions were asked, and the moment was lost.  Now, Mr. Clapper will lay low for awhile and make up a better story for future interviews.
  • But this is just one more detail that we didn’t know before, a detail that helps us understand why the Democrats and their supporters in the fake news media reacted so insanely after Donald Trump won the election.  All these people knew about all the criminal behavior that Democrats had engaged in during the Obama years, and all these people assumed they were safe, because Hillary Clinton was going to win the election.
  • That’s why you saw so many ashen faces, even open weeping, among the fake news people on CNN, MSNBC and the major networks as the results started coming in from Michigan, Wisconsin and Pennsylvania on Election Night.  It’s why Hillary Clinton was incapable of coming out to speak to her loyal supporters once the results were known, and had to send her evil toady John Podesta down to shoo them away instead.
  • Moreover, it’s also exactly why you saw the Democrats and fake news media start coordinating on the whole Trump/Russia collusion fantasy play immediately after the election – it’s a classic Projection strategy.  The Clintons have always used the Projection strategy anytime they’ve been caught in any wrongdoing.
  • In such situations, the Clintons have always, without exception, resorted to muddying the waters by accusing their opposition of engaging in the very same wrongdoing in which they’ve been involved.  The fact that they’ve always been able to rely on 95% of the nation’s news media to simply parrot their talking points 24 hours a day is how they have survived for this long.
  • They all knew they were all safe as long as Hillary won, and they also knew that no one was safe now that Donald Trump had won.  For the last 11 and a half months, our entire nation has been tied up in a massive Democrat/fake media projection project, and it’s all slowly, finally unwinding.
  • Thank you, President Trump, for that.

Just another day in Russia collusion fantasy America.

That is all.
