Saturday News Roundup: The Portland Riots are Back in the Wake of Ginsburg’s Death

Riot City, USA revs up again. – The Portland riots, which magically disappeared last Saturday after the Democrats read their latest awful polling numbers, magically revved back up again Friday night, following the death of Ruth Bader Ginsburg.

If you don’t think the two events are related, you live in a dream world.

Here are some of the highlights from real journalist Andy Ngo:

This is as predictable as the sun rising in the East. You should expect new Democrat-sponsored riots to start popping up all over the country in the coming days, using President Trump’s coming decision to nominate a replacement for Ginsburg as the rationale. As we witnessed all summer long, the riots will all be staged in Democrat-run cities and Democrat mayors will prevent local law enforcement from doing its job.

The Democrats, through their domestic terrorist support groups BLM and Antifa, have been trying for 3 months to provoke President Trump into invoking the Insurrection Act so that they can use the spectacle of National Guard units coming into their cities to quell the rioting to portray the President as an aspiring dictator. Make no mistake about it: The Democrat Party today views violent, deadly rioting as just another political tool in its toolkit, and will use it liberally throughout the country between now and November 3. Portland is just a convenient place to start it all back up again.

Here is how utterly unhinged rank and file Democrats have become in this country (warning: lots of profanity in these clips).

This woman is an associate professor at Marshall University, telling her students that she honestly hopes all Trump supporters will die of COVID-19:

This Democrat has apparently forgotten Allstate’s promise that “safe drivers save 40%”:

If you can read lips just a little bit, you didn’t need the sound turned on to interpret that one.

Here’s what some of the blue-check leftwing journalists are advocating – burn congress down!:

 

You just could never make these people up if they didn’t already exist.

As I wrote elsewhere this morning, President Trump will almost certainly nominate a woman to replace Ginsburg, but in case he decides to nominate a man, you can count on this coming soon:

You know it’s true.

For his own part, President Trump’s immediate, unprepared reaction to Ginsburg’s death was pitch perfect:

Anybody think Creepy Uncle McWifeMolester could have come up with an extemporaneous answer like that on the spur of the moment? Please.

Speaking of Quid Pro China Joe….

45 days until the election, and the Unfrozen Caveman Nominee is once again tucked safely away in his basement, most likely with an IV pumping anti-dementia meds into his left hand:

The IV mark has been present for weeks now, and not a single journalist has had the personal integrity to ask a question about it. Because our national legacy news media is a raging dumpster fire of bias and dishonesty.

That is all.

Trump Should and Will Nominate a Replacement for Ruth Bader Ginsburg

Little Lindsey Graham has another problem on his hands. On October 3, 2018, Graham, in an appearance on C-Span, promised that “If an opening comes in the last year of President Trump’s term…we’ll wait to the next election” to hold hearings and confirm the nominee. Not until the next inauguration – the next election, which is November 3.

Graham, being the little compromised cock-of-the-walk that he is, then boldly told the C-Span host to “hold the tape,” which C-Span of course did. This tape is already being used by Democrats and their media toadies like Jonathan Karl as a hammer against Graham as the battle over the new opening on the U.S. Supreme Court heats up to what will certainly become civil war-threatening levels.

As Chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, Graham will get to preside over the coming hearing related to the nominee President Donald Trump (I still never tire of typing those three glorious words) sends over to congress. Mitch McConnell – Graham’s boss in the Senate, and the guy who stupidly gave Graham this committee chairmanship – has already promised that the nominee will be considered and confirmed by the Senate:

“In the last midterm election before Justice Scalia’s death in 2016, Americans elected a Republican Senate majority because we pledged to check and balance the last days of a lame-duck president’s second term. We kept our promise,” McConnell continued. “Since the 1880s, no Senate has confirmed an opposite-party president’s Supreme Court nominee in a presidential election year.”

McConnell added that “by contrast, Americans reelected our majority in 2016 and expanded it in 2018 because we pledged to work with President Trump and support his agenda, particularly his outstanding appointments to the federal judiciary.”

“Once again, we will keep our promise,” he said. “President Trump’s nominee will receive a vote on the floor of the United States Senate.”

[End]

Note that, for McConnell’s rationale to be 100% certain to come about, the hearings and confirmation must take place before November 3. Because, should the President lose to Joe Biden, he would then become a “lame-duck” President, thus turning McConnell’s reasoning on its head.

That reasoning not only conflicts with Graham’s C-Span comment, it also conflicts with the statement issued in an interview earlier this week – before Ginsburg passed – by RINO Alaska Senator Lisa Murkowski, who said “I would not vote to confirm a Supreme Court nominee” before the November election had come and gone. “Fair is fair,” she added without any supporting evidence that her reasoning is in any way “fair” to the country.

Murkowski did not repeat that commitment in a statement she issued last night:

Image

So, obviously she is waiting to have a conversation with McConnell before going off half-cocked again.

The other most highly-suspect GOP RINO senator in this instance, Susan Collins, took the same approach as Murkowski, lauding Ginsburg in a statement but making no commitment one way or another on holding hearings and a vote before Election Day. Collins, it should be noted, is involved a close re-election campaign (Murkowski is not) and another strong performance in confirmation hearings – like she had with the Brett Kavanaugh nomination – would help her maximize GOP voter turnout.

The nominee will almost certainly be a woman, and Amy Coney Barrett seems to be the odds-on favorite. Others on the list include Joan Larsen of Michigan, who sits on the 6th Circuit Court of Appeals, Brett Grant, a 42 year-old rising star on the 11th Circuit who clerked for Justice Kavanaugh, and Allison Eid, who succeeded Justice Neil Gorsuch on the 10th Circuit Court. All are relatively young (Barrett and Larsen are 51, Eid is 55) and all have sterling records and backgrounds.

All, of course, would be mercilessly slandered and smeared by the Democrat/Media Axis of Propaganda.

For the country, Ginsburg’s death is just one more instance in which the year 2020 moves us inexorably closer to a real civil war, which the Democrats and their domestic terrorist tools in BLM and Antifa have been fomenting all summer. You should expect the rioting that magically came to a halt last Saturday after the Democrats saw their awful new polling data to start up again with renewed intensity as soon as President Trump announces his nominee.

My bet is that the Democrats will make sure that the renewed riots become so violent and destructive that the President will have no choice but to invoke the Insurrection Act prior to Election Day, which has been the Democrat plan all along.

As for Ginsburg, the nicest thing that can be said is that she was extremely tough: A 3-time cancer survivor who clung to her seat of political power for every last day she could wring out of it.

And make no mistake about it: She saw the Court and her seat on it as a political tool, nothing more. Ginsburg spent 27 long years politicizing every decision made by the Supreme Court, where she was a malevolent presence who utterly discarded the notion that the Court’s purpose was to interpret the Constitution, not to try to implement the personal feelings of the Justices themselves.

Ginsburg even managed to politicize her own death, telling an interviewer recently that “My Most Fervent Wish Is That I Not Be Replaced Until a New President Is Installed.”

Smarmy Democrats and corrupt reporters will play that up for all it’s worth. But this is hard ball politics and in that world you can, as my Daddy used to tell me, “wish in one hand and spit in the other and see which one fills up faster.”

President Trump should and will quickly nominate a replacement for Ginsburg, and the Senate should  confirm that nominee. Period.

That is all.

RBG Has Had Liver Cancer Since May, and the Media Obsession Over Kayleigh McEnany’s Tabs

The woman is a cancer-breeding and cancer-killing machine. – Think about it: How many people have you ever heard of who have had lung cancer, stomach cancer, pancreatic cancer and liver cancer over a span of less than a decade and lived to tell about it?

That’s the record that the extraordinarily enduring Ruth Bader Ginsburg has now racked up in recent years. Today, she announced that she has been receiving treatments for liver cancer since May and the Supreme Court has managed to cover that little fact up until now. She also claimed that her hospitalization earlier this week had no relation to her latest battle with cancer, but that seems hard to believe.

From a report at Fox News:

“On May 19, I began a course of chemotherapy to treat a recurrence of cancer,” Ms Ginsburg said in her statement.

“The chemotherapy course… is yielding positive results,” she added. “My most recent scan on 7 July indicated [a] significant reduction of the liver lesions and no new disease.

“I am tolerating chemotherapy well and am encouraged by the success of my current treatment,” she said. “I will continue bi-weekly chemotherapy to keep my cancer at bay.”

Supreme Court justices serve for life or until they choose to retire, and supporters have expressed concern that if anything were to happen to Ms Ginsburg a more conservative judge might replace her while President Donald Trump, a Republican, remains in office.

“I have often said I would remain a member of the Court as long as I can do the job full steam,” Ms Ginsburg said in the statement. “I remain fully able to do that.”

[End]

Everyone should wish the Justice well in this latest battle – there is nothing more terrible than having to deal with cancer, and she has established perhaps the most amazing record in human history of beating forms of the disease that kill a very high percentage of those who suffer from them.

That having been said, the truth about her last statement in that excerpt – “I remain fully able to do that” – is that she is only able to remain nominally on the Court because staff and interns perform 99% of the actual work for her. In that, she is certainly far from the first justice to retain a seat in that way, but unlike her survival skills, it is not something anyone should admire.

The fact that this ailment was kept a secret from a public that deserves to know is also nothing to admire, but not at all surprising for an institution led by a living chameleon, Chief Justice John Roberts.

Meanwhile, in REAL news… – There is no new low to which the members of the White House press corps will not stoop.

Today, a Reuters photographer made it his job to invade the privacy of Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany, worming his way close enough to the podium to get a shot of the tabs on her famous briefing notebook that she brings into every meeting with the assembled enemies of the people.

Here’s the shot:

White House photographer snapped photo of the press secretary's ...

All the corrupt, blue-check media hacks on Twitter are making a huge deal about the tabs titled “Hate” and “Absurd,” but the obvious explanations for those are easy:

– “Hate” contains answers to any question posed by PBS reporter Yamiche Alcindor; and

– “Absurd” contains notes that describe the preening behavior of Jim Acosta.

This is not hard, folks.

That is all.

Liberals go Crazy Because Gorsuch says…Merry Christmas????

Today’s Campaign Update, Part II
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Every time you get to thinking the liberal outrage mob on Twitter cannot possibly get any more stupid or insane than they already are, they go out and prove you wrong. – Supreme Court justice Neil Gorsuch appeared on Fox and Friends Tuesday morning to promote some new book he has written, something fellow justices like Sonya Sotomayor and Ruth Bader Ginsburg have also done in recent years on CNN and MSNBC.

Justice Gorsuch’s appearance would have likely gone unremarked but for the fact that, as he was signing off, he wished the program’s hosts a “Merry Christmas.”

Predictably, the anti-Christian bigots in the liberal outrage mob on Twitter went utterly and completely berserk over that one. As a public service to our readers, we here at the Campaign Update have herewith compiled some of the dumbest, nastiest and just plain idiotic…er…est tweets issued by the liberal lunatics, just so you don’t have to dive into the Twitter cesspool yourselves.

 

So, here we go, starting with this from Alinskyite Lawfare lawyer Susan Hennessey, who says it is “weird” for a SC justice to promote a book in one phrase, then acknowledges that other SC justices have done the same exact thing in her very next thought. No wonder she’s a CNN contributor:

Then there’s some guy named (checks tweet) Sean Kent, who apparently is some sort of half-assed comic, who is outraged that Justice Gorsuch had the temerity to utter the phrase “Merry Christmas” during this, the Christmas season of the year:

Image

Oh, but it just gets better…

Here’s little growth-stunted, bald-headed Brian Stelter exhibiting his consistent utter lack of any self-awareness whatsoever:

…and here is Garrett Ventry informing Mr. pea-brain why his tweet is so utterly clueless:

Oh.

But it gets better still. Here is some person named “Molly McKew” who claims she is some sort of foreign policy expert, brainlessly wondering why Justice Gorsuch is, um…..well, you can read it:

Oh, I dunno, Molly, maybe because HE WAS INVITED???? Good lord.

Ok, y’all, hide the kids now, because this clown, who claim he is both – BOTH, I tell you – an “award-winning artist” and…wait for it…oh, you have to wait for this one… a “SPORTS CARD STORE OWNER” [!!!!!] is all, like, totes angry about it all:

Yeah! You tell ’em, Tony Posnansky, you sports card store owner and award-winning artist, you!

*sigh*

But believe it or not, we aren’t done yet.

Ladies and gentlemen (or whatever your preferred pronouns might be – I personally prefer “Tex” and “Bubba”), I give you a person who calls herself “Mayday Mindy”, whose Twitter profile actually, really and truly reads:

I say what People Think🤨Anti Trump🍊🐶2 dogs 3 kids❤️😎I was the artsy semi cute cool girl

 

Oh, cooooooools, Mindy! LULZ! TOTES! You rule!
*sigh*
Anyway, here’s what the artsy semi cute cool girl had to say about the Justice’s appearance on Fox and Friends:

I know – hardly seemed worth all the build-up, right? Right.

But don’t worry, I have saved the very best of the Twitter Outrage Mob’s outrage-fest for last. Friends, I give you the stylings of one Amee Vanderpool, or as she calls herself on Twitter, @girlsreallyrule:

Image

So, there you have it: In today’s liberal Twitter Outrage Mob Culture, the phrase 98% of you grew up saying throughout your entire childhoods – “Merry Christmas” – is now officially nothing more than a “talking point of the GOP,” and a “Republican narrative.” No more “Merry Christmas” for Democrats no sir, er, ma’am, er, it, er…nevermind.

You seriously could never make these people up, folks. Never in a million years.

Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s Latest Health Scare Has Obama World Very Worried

Today’s Campaign Update, Part II
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

How you know the latest health scare for Ruth Bader Ginsburg is probably very serious. – Within minutes after initial media reports about the latest cancer treatments for 86 year-old Supreme Court Justice Ruth Ginsberg went public, former Obama senior advisor David Axelrod issued the following messages on his Twitter feed:

Now, if you think this is Axelrod expressing his sincere concern about Justice Ginsburg’s health, think again. Note that said expression got only afterthought mention in his first tweet. I mean, “all good wishes to Justice Ginsburg of course. But this could be a prelude to an absolutely titanic political battle” is kind of like when, after you’d gotten a bad grade in 6th-grade math class, you mother used to say “I love you, but you’ve got to do better.” Your mother, like Axelrod, was mainly concerned about the part that came after the “but.”

No, this is a loyal, very senior operative in Obama World issuing a shot across the bow. It’s a clear warning to both President Donald Trump and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell that, should they attempt to fill a vacancy left by Ruth Bader Ginsburg, the street violence and character assassination efforts mounted against Brett Kavanaugh last year will seem like a walk in the park. Actually, it isn’t a mere threat: It’s a promise.

Those peremptory tweets from someone as senior as Axelrod are also a clear indication that he believes that Ginsburg’s condition is truly serious, despite yesterday’s media reports that her doctors had given her a “clean bill of health.”

But that is not what those doctors said, not at all. Here’s the actual release the Supreme Court sent out yesterday on the matter:

The key phrase is “no further treatment is needed at this time.” For someone who, like Ginsburg, has been bravely surviving repeated cancer scares for 20 years, that could mean a lot of different things.

It is quite likely that Axelrod knows what Ginsburg’s situation truly is. His rush to get out that opening shot across the bow tells us that he is very concerned indeed.

We should all pray for Justice Ginsburg’s health, and also pray for our country should her health fail.

That is all.

Real-Time Stream of the State of the Union

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

Here is how I live-streamed President Donald Trump’s magnificent State of the Union Speech on my Facebook page Tuesday night:

– Three living D-Day heroes. How magnificent is that?  And Buzz Aldrin to boot?

– First thing I noticed tonight: No Sheila Jackson Lee in her customary aisle seat!#WheresSheila?

Second thing: San Fran Nan seems to have her mouth gerbil under control, at least initially. Wait and see…

– “Tonight I ask you to choose greatness.” – #Democrats sit on their hands because American greatness is what they’ve been working so hard to kill for half a century now.

– “Nearly 5 million Americans have been lifted off food stamps…” #Democrats sit on their hands…

– “Unemployment has reached the lowest rate in over half a century” – #Democrats sit on their hands…

– Pelosi’s Mouth Gerbil is starting to get more active as Trump goes through all these wonderful economic numbers…

– “My administration has cut more regulations in a short period of time than any other administration in its entire tenure.” #Democrats fainting in the aisles…

Comment from a friend:  “His unwavering condemnation of late term abortions was probably one of the most heroic statements ever made by a POTUS in a state of the union address. He named names and was scortched earth with his proclamation of the evil intent of Democrats.”  Yyyyyyyyyyyyep.

– “We have unleashed a revolution in energy. The U.S. is now the #1 oil and gas producer anywhere in the world.” #Democrats having heart attacks as we speak…

– “Members of congress, the state of our union is STRONG.” #Democrats can’t stand it!

– THE #PELOSI MOUTH GERBIL IS BACK IN FULL THROTTLE!

[Editor’s note: It was.]

– This passage on prison reform is so awesome that even the #Democrats have to applaud. Thanks to Kim Kardashian, of all people, for making it happen, because that’s what she did.

– It’s hilarious watching San Fran Nan so obviously having to work so damn hard to keep that  #mouthgerbil under control. She’s like a 2 year-old kid focusing on a Fischer Price toy.

– Kamala Harris is looking for a Catholic to persecute….

– “I want people to come into our country in the largest numbers ever, but they have to come in legally.” #Democrats scowl and sit on their hands….

 – #Fauxcahontas is sitting there wondering if she should take another DNA test…

– “Tens of thousands of Americans are killed by lethal drugs that flood into our cities…the savage gang MS13 operates in 37 of our states…” #Democratscouldn’t care less…

– Trump introduces the family of the 80 year-olds murdered by an illegal alien, and half the #Democrat caucus sits on its hands. Amazing.

– THAT #PELOSI #MOUTHGERBIL REALLY GOT ACTIVE WHEN TRUMP PROMISED TO NEVER ELIMINATE ICE.

– “The proper wall never got built – I will get it built.” #Pelosi in a panic now – the #mouthgerbil is trying to break out!

– Protected by a barrier “El Paso is now one of the safest cities in our country…simply put, walls save lives.” Simply put, #Democrats don’t care.

– “One century after congress passed the law giving women the right to vote, we also have more women serving in congress than ever before.” #Democratsfinally find a reason to cheer “USA” for once.

– #Pelosi‘s #mouthgerbil loved that stuff about women!

– Oh, here comes the whole “infrastructure” thing… #Trillions

– ‘pre-existing conditions’ – the magic words!

– #CocaineMitch looks awful yellow. Is Hep-C going around in the DC Swamp?

– Can #Democrats at least stand and clap for the little girl with cancer? Maybe even #AOC and her radical Islamic buddies? What a beautiful child.

– Sure is nice seeing #BrettKavanaugh sitting there in the audience. But where is #RBG?

– “The time has come to pass school choice for Americans’ children.” The #Pelosi #mouthgerbil just went into overdrive!

– #ChuckSchumer smiling as Trump talks about his party supporting baby-killing.

– Boy, the bipartisan warmonger lobby hated that discussion about all this peace breaking out with North Korea, huh? #Pelosi‘s #mouthgerbil damn near escaped while that talk was going on.

Comment from a Friend: “I would say this speech is Reaganesque, but his courage and in your face-ness has created a new adjective. Trumpian.”

– “America was founded on liberty and independence and not government coercion and control… we were born free and will remain free…America will never be a socialist country.” #Democrats devastated and depressed.

– Trump now talking about ending the “endless wars” that great nations do not fight. The Bipartisan Warmonger lobby hates this passage as well.

– Hey, remember when #Democrats used to be in favor of PEACE? Yeah, good times…

– I love how #Pelosi keeps pretending she can still read.

– Ocasio-Cortez and the radical Islamic Democrats hate Timothy Matsen. Literally hate him. Isn’t that sad?

– What a sweet moment that “happy birthday” singing was. Very nice.

– “And his father cried out with joy – it’s the Americans! It’s the Americans!” God Bless America.

– Oh my God, this story about Herman Zeitchik helping to liberate Dachau has me in tears.

– “Together we represent the most extraordinary nation in history” Indeed. If only we can maintain it. #MAGA

– “We must always keep faith in America’s destiny.” If only the #Democrats agreed.

Best. State-of-the-Union. Speech. EVER.

That is all.

Democrat/Media Catholic Bashing Has 3 Letters In Mind: RBG

The Afternoon Campaign Update

(Because the Campaign Never Ends)

Many of you have probably figured this out, but it’s important to point out that the recent Democrat/Media focus on demonizing Catholics and Catholicism in general has one thing in mind:

 Ruth Bader Ginsburg.
 
Ginsburg is likely to be off the Supreme Court soon, either by choice or by death, and her most likely replacement nominated by President Trump will be Amy Coney Barrett.  Ms. Barrett is a brilliant legal mind, currently a judge on the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals, and one of a handful of most qualified people in America to replace Ginsburg.
 
She also happens to be — wait for it — Catholic.

The Democrats have already assaulted Barrett for her Catholocism during her confirmation hearings for her current job.  Despicable Sen. Dianne Feinstein made big news when she told Judge Barrett that “the [Catholic] dogma lives loudly within you, and that’s a concern” during that hearing, which took place in April of last year.

More recently, Feinstein was joined by the even more despicable Hawaii Sen. Mazie Hirono and CA Sen. Kamala Harris in efforts to demonize Federal District Judge nominee Brian Beuscher for his membership in the Catholic Knights of Columbus organization:

“The Knights of Columbus has taken a number of extreme positions. For example, it was reportedly one of the top contributors to California’s Proposition 8 campaign to ban same-sex marriage,” Hirono asked Brian Buescher, Trump’s nominee for an open U.S. Federal District Court position, in a series of written questions. “If confirmed, do you intend to end your membership with this organization to avoid any appearance of bias?”

Of course, now we have this current days-long response to an event that was staged by a professional leftist activist, demonizing first a group of teenagers who were minding their own business, then their Covington Catholic High School that organized their field trip, and now Catholic/private education in general.

Obviously, the Democrat/media plan is to create an advance narrative in the public mind that anyone who is associated with the Catholic Church is unqualified to hold public office, in the hopes of hanging this test of heinous religious bigotry around Judge Barrett’s neck when she comes before them as the nominee to replace Ginsburg. So if you’ve been wondering what all of this anti-Catholic hysteria coming from Democrats and the fake news media recently has been all about, well, wonder no more.

Yes, it is the very definition of religious bigotry; yes, it is the very definition of un-American; yes, it is morally-depraved and utterly despicable. But hey, these are leftists we’re talking about here, so none of that should come as any surprise, should it?

Nothing the Democrats or media do is spontaneous anymore – everything is just part of a narrative.

Are We Ready For John Roberts To Decide The Wall Fight? Because That Might Happen.

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Time to get that wall built.  – President Donald Trump will deliver a nationally-televised address on the border situation this evening at 8:00 p.m. Central Time, at which time it is rumored that the Evil Orange Man plans to declare a national emergency and order the border wall to be financed via the military budget. This would be an entirely reasonable move for the President to make in the face of an obstructionist congress, one he clearly has the constitutional authority to enter into, one that has all sorts of precedent in American history.

But of course, the national broadcast networks and 24 hour fake news channels – all of whom have agreed to carry the speech live after spending most of Monday afternoon contemplating censoring the President – will be filled with shrill leftist talking heads and hosts who will contend the move is illegal and completely without precedent. They are all professional liars, and liars gonna lie.

No doubt, were the President to declare such an emergency, the way it would all play out is highly predictable. Leftists would file suit in California or Hawaii, where some Obama-appointed “judge” would make up a reason to declare the state of emergency unconstitutional, and that judgment would be upheld by the nitwit majority on the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals.  The case would then inevitably go to the Supreme Court, where the four reliable constitutionalist justices would vote to reverse the 9th Circuit’s decision, and our nation would then be left at the mercy of Chief Justice John Roberts.

Roberts would have the choice of doing the right thing under the law, or carrying the water for the Deep State, as he did in his Obamacare decision in 2010, and a couple of other key decisions in 2018.  Not a good situation.

But factually, there is no doubt there is ample reason to declare the border situation a national emergency. The levels of drug trafficking, child trafficking and other forms of human trafficking that take place every day across our southern border are scandalous and society-threatening. Hundreds of Americans die every day and hundreds more disappear every day because of the Democrat Party-enforced neglect of the situation. It is a human tragedy of unimaginable proportions and it is scandalous that the Democrats continue to treat the situation as just another political football to be rolled into their Evil Orange Man agenda.

Democrats demanded the networks give them time to respond to the President’s address tonight.  No word if their message will be delivered by representatives from the Sinaloa Cartel and the MS-13 gang, but it seems likely and would be totally appropriate.

In a seemingly unrelated event… – Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg was unable to show up to hear oral arguments in the Supreme Court chamber on Monday, the first time she has missed a day on the bench in her 25 years on the Court. Ginsburg, 85, is in extremely frail health and recovering from last month’s surgery to remove two cancerous tumors from her lung.

But hey, because she’s a certified member of the Deep State, she’ll be able to just keep voting on the cases during her absence, which she will supposedly judge from reading transcripts of the oral arguments.  In other words, her clerks will be doing the judging, which they’ve no doubt been doing for quite some time now anyway, as Ginsburg continues her grim quest to outlive the Evil Orange Man’s first term in office.

Aw, heck. – Alleged serial sex-abuser Kevin Spacey had his first court hearing in the initial prosecution against him on Monday, and had another run-in with the law as he tried to return home.  Upon leaving Reagan National Airport in Washington, DC on his drive back to his Baltimore condo, Spacey was pulled over by local cops for …wait for it…A SPEEDING TICKET!  I swear I do not make this stuff up.

Texas Rep. Dan Crenshaw has got game. – You may remember Georgia Democrat Congressman Hank Johnson.  He’s the clown who, in a congressional hearing several years back, expressed his genuine concern that, due to its booming population, the island of Guam might actually capsize into the Pacific Ocean.  Think I made that up?  Think again.

Anyway, in a speech over the weekend, the nitwit Johnson had this to say about President Trump and his supporters:

“Much like Hitler took over the Nazi party, Trump has taken over the Republican Party. It’s now known as the Trump Republican Party…Donald Trump’s supporters are older, less educated, less prosperous, and they are dying early. Their lifespans are decreasing, and many are dying from alcoholism, drug overdoses, liver disease, or simply a broken heart caused by economic despair,”

Freshman Texas Congressman Dan Crenshaw, after learning of Johnson’s remarks, decided not to take them quietly.  He tweeted out a video in which he took Johnson to task for his incivility.  Here are a couple of outtakes:

“OK Mr. Johnson, President Trump is a lot of things, but he’s not Hitler.  He didn’t kill millions of people. He didn’t start a world war, he doesn’t have any concentration camps, and to accuse him of being Hitler is intellectually dishonest, and frankly a huge insult to the millions of Jews who died under Nazi Germany.”

But it gets better.  Crenshaw also took Johnson to task for his idiotic, dishonest portrayal of Trump supporters:

“You went on to insult, degrade, and demean tens of millions of Americans who voted for him, to call them drug-addicted, uneducated, unhappy alcoholics — this is a cowardly form of politics.”

Crenshaw went on to challenge Johnson to “pick on someone your own size,” reminding him that “my office will be right down the hall from yours.”

Fantastic.
