Three Weeks to Iowa: The State of the Democrat Clown Show

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

What will we do without Marianne Williamson in the race? – The new age guru – whatever that actually means – and fantastic dancer and debater ended her doomed-to-fail campaign on Friday, and hardly anyone noticed. Kind of like when radical Texan Julian Castro ended his campaign back in late December…or maybe it was early January, I forget which and don’t care enough to go look it up.

So, the protected minority candidates keep on dropping out and the pasty old geriatric white males keep movin’ on up in the Democrat field.  How old is the Democrat field? Take a look at this photo:

That’s former Nebraska Senator Bob Kerrey. Sen. Kerrey is a Medal of Honor winner who was briefly a leading Democrat candidate for the party’s 1992 nomination, which was of course ultimately won lifelong fraud Bill Clinton. Because of course it was.

That was 28 years ago, when Kerrey was 49 years old. Today, 28 years and 7 presidential election cycles later, Kerrey is still younger than 3 of the 5 leading contenders for the Party’s 2020 nomination. This is your Democrat Party, circa 2020.

The leader in the national polls in the race to see who will lose miserably to President Donald Trump in November remains the nation’s Unfrozen Caveman Senator, Quid Pro Joe Biden. This is a guy who just secured the endorsement of Eric Garcetti, the Mayor of Los Angeles, on a day when he thought for sure he was in Toledo, Ohio.

Joe Biden is so old that he first got elected to the U.S. Senate around the time that Jimmy Hoffa was murdered by the mob. Interestingly, if you watched the 3 and a half-hour film “The Irishman” recently and thought it was overly-long, consider this: The film’s executive producer and director, Martin Scorsese, decided to leave out the part of the biographical book it is based upon (“I Heard You Paint Houses” by Charles Brandt) that details how the same mob figure, Frank Sheeran, who claims to have killed Hoffa actually also says that he helped Biden win that first Senate campaign in 1972.

Yeah, there’s a whole chapter about that in the book, which I read in 2018, long before this film came about. Sheeran claims that the mob-controlled truckers union refused to deliver newspapers in Delaware containing full-page ads for Biden’s opponent, incumbent Republican J. Caleb Boggs, during the weeks leading up to that election day in 1972. Biden ended up winning that Delaware senate race by just 3,200 votes.

Hey, Biden always said he was a union guy!

Isn’t it interesting that the makers of a film as long as “The Godfather” decided to cut that chapter out of all the chapters in the book? But hey, that’s how the incestuous Democrat/Hollywood alliance works. Just ask Harvey Weinstein and Kevin Spacey and all the supposedly abused actors and actresses who offered them both so much public praise over the last 25 years and have now gone silent about them.

So, there he is, ladies and gentlemen: Joe Biden, your leader in the Democrat race. This 77 year-old likely dementia-sufferer is the guy who the similarly demented Democrat voter base thinks is the most “electable” person in the field. Whew.

Next up is the even-older-than-Biden Commie, Bernie Sanders, who is running a fairly strong second in the national polls but leading now in both Iowa and New Hampshire. Oh, golly, think of the momentum the Commie will generate should he win both of those early contests. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez will be all like, totes excited and stuff, or something, should that happen.

Sanders’ big problem is that he just has a very low ceiling, with his main appeal being to the least reliable and most ignorant voters in the Democrat base: College students. The Commie’s support drops off dramatically as you go up the voter age chart, and the old folks are the most reliable voters in the country. Still, with the Democrats’ new system of proportionally rewarding delegates in each primary contest, the Commie remains a real threat to accumulate a lot of delegates, just as he did in 2016.

Then you have Fauxcahontas, clearly the single most blatant life-long fraud in the race, which I keep thinking means she will ultimately end up winning it. Little Princess Gonna Take All Your Wampum had a significant boomlet during August and September, but ended up fading during the final three months of 2019 as she struggled to explain how she might pay for her $40 trillion “Medicare for all” scheme without raising taxes on anyone with less money than multi-billionaires Mike Bloomberg and Tom Steyer.

But she finally ended up landing on a talking point that basically says “hey, just trust me on this, since you know I’ve lied to you about every aspect of my personal life.” Which naturally worked with the demented Democrat voter base. So now she appears to be making a little comeback, polling second ahead of the Commie in the most recent national poll from Economist/YouGov, just 5 points behind Creepy Uncle Joe. I still think Warren, as the most obvious complete fraud in the race, is the most likely nominee here barring the entry of some other candidate, like Hillary Clinton, not currently in the race.

After those top 3, you have two more pasty white guys: Preacher Pete Buttigieg and Mr. Excitement, Mike Bloomberg.

Let’s be honest about Preacher Pete, shall we? He is not going anywhere in this race, and by that I mean he is not going anywhere outside of his 6-8% polling range in which he has been stuck since last June. No matter how much fawning press he receives, no matter how many bible verses he misquotes, no matter how many free, 2-hour-long town hall shows CNN gives him, this is where Preacher Pete is stuck, at least in the national polling. That is the extent of his national appeal.

He’s doing better than that in Iowa and New Hampshire, the two tiny states packed with self-loathing white middle-class socialist voters that lead things off. Preacher Pete might be able to crest that 15% minimum threshold required to be awarded some delegates in those two states. After that, his prospects quickly become paper-thin.

Mr. Excitement, meanwhile, has now spent over $200 million of his own money on this campaign to get himself up to about 6% in the national polls, just behind the Preacher. This is what Warren Buffet and the folks at Goldman Sachs would likely refer to as a “crappy investment,” but Bloomberg seems undeterred, having just shelled out another $10 million for a one-minute ad during the upcoming Super Bowl.

Mr. Excitement’s problems in this race are myriad, but the main one is that he is simply too genuine to appeal to enough demented Democrat voters to secure the nomination: Too genuinely short; too genuinely boring; too genuinely soft-spoken; too genuinely not prone to blatant lies about his background and family; too genuinely dedicated to banning 32 oz. soft drinks and cow farts.

This man clearly did not do his homework before entering this race – if he had, he would know that every Democrat presidential nomination since 1976 has been awarded by the Party’s demented voters to the single biggest lifelong fraud in the race. Plus, if he ever does manage to qualify for one of the monthly debates, he will simply bore the country to death. Mr. Excitement will not be the nominee.

After those five, the only other candidate in the race worth mentioning is Amy Klobuchar, who is polling fairly well in Iowa and New Hampshire. But “fairly well” means about 6%, and you have to win 15% of the actual vote to win any delegates. The chances of her breaking through with a truly strong finish in either state are basically nil, and the smart money is on her dropping out of the race after New Hampshire has come and gone.

Complicating all of this, of course, is that three of those six candidates mentioned – along with Cory Booker, another minority candidate who is going nowhere – are members of the U.S. Senate. They’re all about to have the privilege of spending virtually all of the rest of January sitting quietly in the Senate chamber for 10 hours a day, 6 days a week during the upcoming “trial” of President Trump. They have San Fran Nan to thank for that, since she’s the one who set up the timetable for all of this.

While the Commie and Fauxcahontas seem to be running strong in Iowa and New Hampshire now, what do you think will happen to their polling numbers when they disappear from those states for the 3 weeks leading up to the Iowa Caucuses?

Man, it’s almost as if San Fran Nan did this all intentionally to help Quid Pro Joe, isn’t it?

Bottom line: The more time goes on, the more likely an open convention becomes for this pathetic, despicable and disloyal political party.

Considering all of these factors and more that I don’t have time to detail here, these are my current odds on the ultimate winner of the Democrat 2020 presidential nomination:

Someone not currently in the race: EVEN

Fauxcahontas: 5 to 2

Biden: 3 to 1

The Commie: 5 to 1

Bloomberg: 20 to 1

Buttigieg: 100 to 1

The field: 1,000 to 1

 

That is all.

President Trump Savages Nancy Pelosi’s Fugitive Dentures

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

We are all so lucky to be living in the age of Trump. – On Sunday morning, Congressman Mark Meadows responded to a tweet from The Hill’s twitter account. The tweet showed San Fran Nan Pelosi, attempting to answer a reporter’s question while obviously having a very difficult time to keep her misbehaving dentures in her depraved mouth.

Watch as Pelosi struggles with her fugitive mouth appliance:

A few hours later, President Trump saw Meadows’ tweet and boy, was his response epic:

No doubt the leftist Perpetual Outrage Mob on Twitter is going nuts as I type this. It’s a beautiful, and very predictable, thing.

Never stop tweeting, Mr. President. Please, never, ever stop.

That is all.

Impeachment’s Incredible Moving Goal Posts

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

The goal posts just keep on moving. – Anytime a major controversy arises that implicates prominent Democrats in wrongdoing, the Democrats and their media toadies employ two favorite tactics. The first is “projection,” accusing the other side of doing exactly what they themselves have been caught doing. You know, like abusing your office by withholding foreign aid to, say, oh, Ukraine until that country’s president fires the prosecutor who is investigating the U.S. Vice President’s son. Something like that.

The other favored tactic is the moving of the goal posts. You can count on this to happen with at least one aspect of the situation on pretty much a daily basis.  Where Joe Biden’s clear quid pro quo with Ukraine is concerned, here is the progression we’ve seen so far:

“Hey, that didn’t happen!”

[Video of Biden bragging about doing it gets wide social media play despite the mainstream media’s best efforts to bury it.]

“Hey, that’s old news!”

[Trump produces campaign ad melding Biden bragging video with other shady Biden interactions with various Ukraine thugs.]

“Ok, ok, Biden did it, but he didn’t do it for ‘personal’ gain!” That’s the latest line from Fredo Cuomo, Fake Jake Tapper and everyone else in the fake media, including Fox’s Chris Wallace on Sunday. That one will fail, too, and we can expect to see another new absurdly false defense of Quid Pro Joe to be floated out today by all the Usual Suspects.

Then there’s the fake “whistleblower” himself. When this all first broke, the line coming from Adam Schiff (who we now know had been coordinating with the “whistleblower” for weeks before the story broke) was that this intrepid, heroic spy embedded by the CIA within the White House for months was heroically confident of his story and would be heroically willing to testify before Schiff’s heroic committee.  Last Tuesday, Bug Eyes even speculated the spy would testify “before the end of the week.”

The news fakers at the New York Times, obviously having gotten the green light from Schiff and Pelosi, went so far as to publish personal details about the CIA plant, details that have allowed some to basically figure out exactly who the guy is. This was clearly done in anticipation of the guy testifying quickly, a stage-setting for the big show.

Then on Thursday, President Trump started saying he’d love for the guy to testify in public and have to face questioning from Republicans on the committee, and Schiff – and probably the fake whistleblower, too – started getting cold feet. When the President later characterized the Intelligence Community operatives who fed the whistleblower all of the second-and-third-hand information contained in his fake complaint as “almost spies,” the Democrat/media propaganda complex saw the chance to shift the goal posts again.

First, the media in unison – they all had the same talking points memo to read from, after all – falsely claimed the President’s “almost spies” remark was about the fake whistleblower rather than the IC operatives who fed him the gossip. Very shortly thereafter, they all began saying in unison – without presenting a shred of actual evidence – that the fake whistleblower who just days before was the brave hero ready to testify in public was now all a-skeered for his life because the bad Orange Man said something nasty about him, even though what the President said wasn’t about him.

Last night on “60 Minutes”, drama queen Scott Pelley went so far as to falsely claim that the fake whistleblower is so a-skeered that “he or she” is now in federal protective custody. The problem there is that the fake whistleblower’s own lawyers say that just isn’t true. But hey, when has truth ever mattered to our fake news media? They have a population to be brainwashed, after all.

In case you’re wondering, what’s really happened here is that the Democrats and IC spies who have choreographed this entire fake pretense for impeachment made one gigantic miscalculation: They obviously never expected the White House to release the transcript of the call with the Ukrainian President. They assumed the White House would do what it has been doing all year in the face of a raft of highly-politicized subpoenas from various House committees: Protect the right of Executive Privilege. Without the transcript being made public, everything would have devolved into a classic “he said, she said” dispute.

The fact is the release of that transcript is a completely unprecedented act. It has never been done before. The President, faced with shrill demands from the Democrat/media complex to “come clean,” called their bluff and came clean. That was not part of the Democrat/IC script for this whole impeachment deal.

The problem, of course, is that the transcript of the call does not support in any way the claims made by the fake whistleblower in his complaint. The Democrat/media complex started down the road to claiming the transcript had been falsified over the weekend, but then we learned that the same IC spies who fed the fake whistleblower all the gossip also participate in the creation of these transcripts. So if you’re claiming the transcript is false, you’re accusing your own co-conspirators.

So, they next went to claiming the fact that the transcript had been stored on a super-secure server was proof of a coverup! Oops. Turns out that has been standard operating procedure for all transcripts of presidential calls with foreign leaders for more than two years now.

Thus, today the goal posts will be moved again. The Democrat/media talking points monkeys are no doubt working on today’s memo as this is being written. No idea what the newest narrative will be, but we can be certain it will be as false as all of its predecessors.

Because that is who these people are, and it is what they do. Every. Damn. Day.

That is all.

About that Nervous Nancy…

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

A killshot for the ages. – Don’t look now, but President Donald Trump has leveled what is going to be a very, very effective killshot at Nancy Pelosi. He tagged her with it during yesterday’s interview with Fox’s Laura Ingraham, and followed it up this morning with this pair of tweets:

“Nervous Nancy.” How perfect is that? Think about it: What political figure are you familiar with who appears to be more constantly, overtly nervous than San Fran Nan?

Here’s a great example from the 2018 State of the Union address – watch her working her mouth so nervously that it looks like she has a gerbil running around in there:

Or how about this video of her stammering and fidgeting through a typical press availability?:

This could go on and on, because these are very typical public performances by the doddering Speaker.

So, the first requirement of an effective killshot – that it is accurate and cannot be proven to be untrue – is firmly in place.

The next requirement – equally important here – is that the killshot be something about which the target will become self-conscious. Pelosi is already so self-conscious about her fidgety, stammering, speech-slurring public appearance that she and her media allies just spent an entire week attempting to get Facebook to ban one video of her on the utterly false claim that it was “doctored.”

Trump’s tagging her with the “Nervous Nancy” nickname will inevitably result in Pelosi becoming extremely self-conscious about controlling her myriad nervous tics, most likely to such a point that they will only become even more self-evident. The new nickname will just as inevitably cause Pelosi’s target audiences – the fake news media and the public – to pay close attention to her tics and comment on them.

Back in mid-March, the President issued a killshot on Irish Bob O’Rourke, as follows:

“Well, I think he’s got a lot of hand movement. I’ve never seen so much hand movement. I said, ‘Is he crazy or is that just the way he acts?’” Trump said at the White House. “I watched him a little while this morning, during I assume it was some kind of a news conference, and I’ve actually never seen anything quite like it.”

That one was so immediately effective that Irish Bob was filmed the very next day answering a reporter’s questions with his normally-waving arms seemingly glued to his sides. O’Rourke has basically never recovered, as his poll numbers have fallen from around 10% support to about 3% in the wake of the killshot. The President didn’t tag him with a nickname, but his remarks about Irish Bob caused the public to take notice of just how weird and un-serious he truly is.

During the 2016 GOP nominating process, we saw the very same process take place with “Little Marco” Rubio, Jeb! “Low Energy” Bush, “Annoying” John Kasich, and others. The “Lyin’ Ted” Cruz moniker was not nearly so effective given Cruz is most often demonstrably not lying, but by the time Trump tagged him with that nickname he was so far ahead in the race that he didn’t need a killshot related to Cruz in any event.

“Nervous Nancy” has all the hallmarks of being an immediately effective, potentially devastating killshot, mainly because Nancy is indeed extremely nervous pretty much all the time, and has no real means of demonstrating otherwise. I’m betting it will be so effective in quickly diminishing Pelosi’s public credibility that even members of her own caucus in the House will be remarking on the Speaker’s nervousness within a few weeks.

Won’t that be fun?

That is all.

Pelosi Lobs a Bomb as President Trump Honors Fallen D-Day Heroes

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

Hey, there could be a cause and effect relationship here. – The NBA’s year-over- year ratings are down 22% in 2019. Meanwhile, we can no longer refer to the owners of NBA franchises as “owners.”  The reason? Because it makes the largely-black players who these [not] owners have turned into multi-millionaires feel all like ‘slaves’ and stuff. You just cannot make this stuff up.

What a coincidence! I preferred life before Madonna! – Aging, vastly overrated pop star Madonna told an interviewer for New York Times Magazine that “I preferred life before the phone.” Which is interesting since, at age 60, she has never experienced life without phones. The piece itself, linked here, is a tiresome bit of fawning media hackery, so don’t waste your time.

Oh, this’ll really thaw those chilly relations. – Just a couple of weeks after she pretended to chastise President Donald Trump for refusing to negotiate with her and Chuckie Schumer on an infrastructure bill just hours after she had accused him of executing a “cover-up” of something or other, San Fran Nan went even further into the realm of abject dementia on Wednesday. In yet another “impeachment meeting” with her deranged House caucus, the Speaker of the House engaged in a heated discussion with Jabba the Nadler in which she said “I don’t want to see him [Trump] impeached, I want to see him in prison.”

At least, she said that according to a story in the left-wing digital concoction called Politico, which is based on anonymous sources only. In fact, Politico identifies these sources as “multiple Democratic sources familiar with the meeting.” That likely means none of the sources were actually in the meeting, because if they had been, Politico would have identified them as “sources who were present at the meeting,” or something similar. Most likely, assuming these “sources” even exist, they are acquaintances of Jabba, San Fran Nan or Pencil Neck.

But hey, let’s just assume the story is true, mainly because it sounds exactly like something this evil woman would actually say, and like something she and Democrats in general would plant in the fake news media while the President of the United States is in France commemorating the 75th anniversary of the D-Day invasion. Because this is what the Democrats do, and it is who they are. They will resort to literally any tactic to give their media toadies an excuse to avoid reporting anything positive about this President.

Here’s the best passage from the Politico fake/real/who knows? report:

Ashley Etienne, a Pelosi spokeswoman said Pelosi and the chairmen “had a productive meeting about the state of play with the Mueller report. They agreed to keep all options on the table and continue to move forward with an aggressive hearing and legislative strategy, as early as next week, to address the president’s corruption and abuses of power uncovered in the report.”

That is some world class word salad right there, folks. Basically, what it says is “We’re gonna keep having hearings and tossing out subpoenas until we find something that sticks.” Funny, Robert Mueller spent two years and $40 million taxpayer dollars doing the same thing, and we saw how that all worked out for his Democrat masters.

And therein lies the biggest source of Democrat frustration: After all this time, all these investigations, all of this money and all of this rhetoric, there is just nothing there. Like Mueller, they are left holding a big bag of nothing, which has them in a constantly-ratcheting state of panic.

Jabba and Pencil Neck want to just throw reality to wind and move ahead with impeachment for the sake of it, but San Fran Nan wants to maintain some chance of preserving her House majority and remaining Speaker past the 2020 elections. The irony here is that Jabba and Pencil Neck want to trod the same road Pelosi trod with Obamacare in 2010, when she famously advised the American voters that “we need to pass the bill so we can see what’s in it.”

Like Pelosi a decade ago, they want to just open up Pandora’s Box and see if they can get anything real to fall out of it. But San Fran Nan learned something from her Obamacare episode, which is that the American voters do not approve of this sort of abuse of the process in congress, and will direly punish those who engage in it the next time they have the chance to do so at the ballot box.

Speaking of Robert Mueller, our now-retired Witch Hunter-in-Chief, everyone should note that Christopher Steele, who concocted the fake Trump Dossier that became the basis for the Obama FBI’s rampant spying operations against the Trump Campaign in 2016, has agreed to conduct an interview with investigators at the Department of Justice. Given the personal jeopardy such an interview would create for the ex-British spy, we must assume Steele has likely cut some sort of immunity deal in exchange for his testimony.

Speculation is that Steele will be interviewed by DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz, who has been engaged for two years now in his own investigation of the abuses of the FISA process by Obama officials. If that’s the case, that means that Horowitz is still trying to tie things down in his investigation and his report likely won’t be coming anytime in June.

I know the wheels of real justice turn slowly, but this is getting to be damned ridiculous.

That is all.

Trump Hoists Pelosi, Democrats on Their Own Sanctuary City Petard

The Evening Campaign Update
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

I swear, listening to these Democrats moan every day about whatever their preferred narrative happens to be is like watching Alice in Wonderland – up is down, boys are girls, treason is wonderful, spying is not spying, Ilhan Omar is a patriot Dan Crenshaw isn’t. It’s all so mind-numbingly tiresome.

Today’s big outrage came when the news-fakers at the Washington Post reported that President Trump had proposed in a White House meeting that we should take all the fake “asylum seekers” who are in fact not entitled to asylum at all but who we must let into the country thanks to Democrat laws enforced by Obama judges, and send them to all the Democrat-run sanctuary cities so that Democrats can care for their hoped-for new voter base.

Makes perfect sense to anyone with the ability to reason logically, and that, by the way, is exactly why Democrat leaders pitched such a fit.

The thing about the President’s proposal here is that it exposes the Democrats by taking their “sanctuary city” scam to its logical conclusion. After all, San Fran Nan is fond of calling illegal immigrants “little gifts from God,” so hey, let’s take the 100,000 “gifts” that God is apparently causing to swim the Rio Grande each month and bus them all to San Francisco and Oakland and Los Angeles and every other Democrat-run sanctuary city around the country.

That should make them all happy, right? Well, not to hear San Fran Nan tell it. She pitched such a fit before the cameras Friday afternoon that it looked for a moment she was going to break down in tears.

But wait: A couple of fake “journalists” who write for The Daily Beast online sham news site claimed later in the afternoon to have talked with a bunch of sanctuary mayors and found them to be just peachy keen with the President’s idea:

“The city would be prepared to welcome these immigrants just as we have embraced our immigrant communities for decades,” Philadelphia Mayor Jim Kenney told The Daily Beast in a statement.

Great! Put ’em on the first bus to Philly! Let’s have a caravan!

“As a welcoming city, we would welcome these migrants with open arms, just as we welcomed Syrian refugees, just as we welcomed Puerto Ricans displaced by Hurricane Maria and just as we welcome Rohingya refugees fleeing genocide in Myanmar,” said Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel in a statement.

Terrific! When’s the next Amtrak up to Chi-town?

“I am proud that Cambridge is a sanctuary city,” Mayor Marc McGovern of Cambridge, Massachusetts, told The Daily Beast. “Trump is a schoolyard bully who tries to intimidate and threaten people. I’m not intimidated and if asylum seekers find their way to Cambridge, we’ll welcome them.”

Awesome! Let’s ship them on the first American or United flight up to Taxachusetts!  Maybe we can get Fauxcahontas to come to the local shelter to recite her stories about her family’s fake Indian heritage – they’ll love that stuff!

During his show today, Rush Limbaugh did his best to make it sound as if the idea was just briefly floated at a White House brainstorming session, but not really given serious consideration and quickly discarded. But the President himself, no doubt smelling a prime opportunity to spend several days hoisting Pelosi and other Democrat leaders on their own petard, put the quietus to that notion later in the afternoon at a press availability, where he said, in part:

“The asylum laws are absolutely insane. They come up. In many cases, they’re rough gang members. In many cases, they’re people with tremendous crime records and they’re given a statement to read by lawyers that stand there waiting for them, “Read this statement.” And it says, “I have great fear for my life. I have great fear for being in my country.” Even though, in some cases, some of these people are holding their country’s flags and waving their country’s flags. And then they talk about the fear they have of being in the country — that the flag they were waving freely.

“So we are looking at the possibility — strongly looking at it, to be honest with you. California, the governor wants to have a lot of people coming in, refugees coming in. A lot of sanctuary cities. So we’ll give them to the sanctuary cities, maybe, to take care of, if that’s the way they want it — because we can only hold them, under the current law, for 20 days. So we apprehend them by the thousands and thousands a day.

“California certainly is always saying, “Oh, we want more people.” And they want more people in their sanctuary cities. Well, we’ll give them more people. We can give them a lot. We can give them an unlimited supply. And let’s see if they’re so happy. They say, “We have open arms.” They’re always saying they have open arms. Let’s see if they have open arms.

“The alternative is to change the laws, and we can do it very, very quickly, very easily. Okay?”

So, get ready, Democrat mayors – you asked for illegal aliens to protect, and Trump has tens of thousands of them to place in your cities. And now, unlike a week ago, he has a Homeland Security Secretary who just might be willing to carry out the plan.

That is all.

The Week in Review: Beto, Biden and Bribes, Oh My!

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

The Week in Review, courtesy of the @GDBlackmon Twitter Feed…

The week began with the loss of an hour’s sleep due to our annual national act of Daylight Savings Time insanity, and it just went down from there.:

The sponsor of the “Green New Deal” was among fellow Climate Frauds in Austin on Sunday, and she got a selfie with one of the biggest frauds of all.:

This is, like, what AOC, like, sounds like when she….ummm…like, goes off script.:

Meanwhile, things continued to crumble out in Los Angeles…:

He isn’t often right, but he’s right about this.:

Greg Budell had the perfect solution for young Americans who favor turning our country into just another socialist cesspit of human misery.:

Fox News’s Tucker Carlson again became a target of the social media outrage mob when the scumbags at Media Matters dug up some comments he’d made on a talk radio program a decade ago. His response should serve as the role model for anyone caught up in such nonsense in the future.:

It’s always fun watching an old cowboy whipping a young thug’s ass, complete with taking his shirt.:

The fake news never stops at CNN, and Little Jimmy Acosta continues to be the most tireless yet least effective news-faker in the business.:

This bit of truth cannot be repeated often enough.:

Oh. Uh, wouldn’t that be, like, collusion or something?:

How many dead elderly Americans do you reckon polled to come to the conclusion that they aren’t happy?:

This man is seriously considering running for president. No, seriously, he really is.:

Think about it: You know it’s true.:

Man, that’s gonna make it a lot harder for the people at NOAA to keep defrauding the global temperature records.:

Is this even an arguable point? China is the world’s second-largest economy, and it is still taking money from the World Bank? Holy crap, we are such a bunch of suckers.:

She. Did. Not. Rule. Out. Impeachment.:

When the media refuses to correctly identify the root cause of the problem (in this case, Democrats) the problem will only continue to grow.:

A couple of true geniuses passed away this week. First, Dan Jenkins, probably the greatest and funniest sports writer who ever lived, died at the age of 94. Then, Hal Blaine, an incomparable studio drummer, joined Jenkins in the afterlife.:

Mitt Romney had a birthday, and all that did was remind us of his failings.:

It was a week when the Democrats really ramped-up their obsession with political losers.:

The truth about AOC emerged, and it really helped make sense of everything she says and does. If you haven’t taken the 23 minutes required to watch this expose’, make time to do it. You’ll be glad you did.:

Oh, well, call me insecure, then. *sigh*:

Pretty sure that’s also a piece of AOC’s “Green New Deal.” Isn’t sewer water generally green?:

Here, I try to educate some fake reporter who is lying about his interactions with folks from the oil and gas industry. I no doubt failed.:

Just thought you all should know this.:

Here I capture the essence of today’s Federal Bureau of Investigation.:

Well, I would.:

Here is leading Climate Fraud Bill McKibben, promoting what amounts to nothing more or less than mass child abuse.:

And now we pause for a little cat comedy gold.:

Ok, this intermission is going to last just a little longer…:

In other news, water continues to be wet.:

This was not the best piece I’ve ever written, but it might well be the cleverest headline.:

Self-awareness continues to be a personal weakness for Fauxcahontas.:

Ben Shapiro captured the pure essence of the media’s approach to writing Beto profiles.:

There are just so many unattractive options where Irish Bob O’Rourke is concerned.:

Seriously, was there still anyone out there who didn’t already know this?:

Try, just try, to imagine how utterly worthless a degree from NYU truly is.:

Well, of course he did.:

When his campaign comes up a crapper, he can replace Matthew McConaughey in those Lincoln ads.:

If you don’t follow Nick Searcy on Twitter, you are truly missing out on the fun.:

I got up in a sour mood on Friday. CNN only made it worse.:

Just hours after swearing we were all gonna die if we don’t stop using gasoline, Irish Bob was begging donors to pay to fill up his gas-guzzling minivan. You seriously cannot make this stuff up.:

No question about this.:

David Corn needs better talking points. This is just too easy.:

This happened.:

Now, for another funny break.:

When Chelsea Clinton was harassed by a Muslim college student, various conservatives rushed to her defense on Twitter. I couldn’t for the life of me figure out why. But then, I never cared much for virtue signaling.:

This is self-serving, but hey, it’s my blog.:

I always was a big fan of The Who.:

Those two options are not mutually-exclusive.:

Here, I offer a little free advice to Senator Ted Cruz.  I wish he’d take it – he’d be doing a national service.:

The clearest proof that “Climate Change” is a socialist-promoting scam is that its most prominent spokesmen are invariably people who don’t make any effort at all to change their own lifestyles.:

Finally, I’m a huge fan of Texas Governor Greg Abbott, but every once in a while he gets something wrong.:

The Border Debate is Groundhog Day All Over Again

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

So here we go again. – Well, it’s like Groundhog Day: we keep waking up in the morning to listen to congressional Republicans use the same tired old talking points on the border issue.  “The Democrats should do the right thing,” they say, followed by “they should come to the table and negotiate in good faith.”

Yeah, like that’s gonna happen, right?

Invariably, the Republican speaking is some Chamber of Commerce guy or gal who secretly likes open borders for all the cheap labor that provides to all the business interests that fund their campaigns every two years. The real elephant in the living room on this border issue is the same as it was on Obamacare repeal: establishment Republicans refusing to follow through on promises made during their campaigns.

The most valid question in the entire mess is “hey, you Republicans just finished two solid years of having the presidency along with majorities in both houses of congress – if we have a real border emergency, how come you didn’t do anything about it when you had the chance?” And don’t give me the standard crap about their needing 9 Democrat votes in the Senate: If it’s a real emergency, you find a way to get it done through the budget reconciliation process (where only 51 votes are required) and take care of it.

So now all the government workers – without whose presence it took a full month before even the slightest impacts on the American public were felt in a handful of our nation’s airports – are back at work and getting paid to do whatever it is they’re supposed to be doing, and we’re all supposed to say “yay!” for that.  Awesome. Yay.

And for the next three weeks we’re going to be treated to yet another round of D.C. Swamp Kabuki theatre in which both sides will preen and posture and recite talking points written by other people and nothing real will get done. At the end of this latest act, President Donald J. Trump had best either refuse to sign the atrocity of a bill he is presented – because it surely will not contain the $5.7 billion border security funding for which he has been advocating – and shut the government down again, or sign the damn thing and declare his long-promised and long-delayed national emergency.

I say he’d better do one of those two things, because the only other option he is going to have left to him will be to sign whatever bill he is presented and take whatever pittance it contains for border security and pretend that it is some sort of “win”. The thing about that is, nobody’s going to buy it, not even his most fervent fans. If President Trump capitulates on this issue, his presidency would be well and truly over, and he might as well resign and go back to public life.

Here’s the good news: He won’t capitulate. That’s not in his makeup. Come Feb. 15, he’ll be out there fighting just like he always has, and we’ll all be able to see pretty clearly which Republican members of congress are really out there with him.

There won’t be many, and the ones who aren’t – like Marco Rubio – are the real problem here.

About that State of the Union… – Speaking of D.C. Swamp Kabuki theatre, where is it? The government’s back open, so where’s that letter from San Fran Nan renewing the invite to the President to come and enthrall the congress and all of us out here in Flyover Country who all the coastal sophisticates think have nothing better to do on a Tuesday evening?

Ok, honestly, I really don’t give a damn about the State of the Union, and would just as soon see it go away entirely. But that isn’t going to happen, and as things currently stand, this represents another real missed opportunity for the President.

He should be out there somewhere giving a speech tomorrow night. It could be on the National Mall, or as I discussed a couple of weeks back, in one of the great Red State cities like Pittsburgh, St. Louis, Detroit, Dallas, San Antonio or even down in the Rio Grande Valley of Texas.

As it has traditionally been carried out, the entire ritual around the State of the Union has become an incredibly tiresome exercise with pretty much no utility at all for real people. In her despicable fit of petulance, San Fran Nan has handed the President a golden opportunity to change its entire nature and bring it out to the people he constantly claims to be his sole focus in office.

If he misses this opportunity, it will be a real loss for his presidency.

That is all.

Pelosi Hands Trump a Golden Opportunity to be the Disrupter Again

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

By dis-inviting President Donald Trump from delivering the annual State of the Union address to a joint session of congress, Speaker San Fran Nan provides the President with a golden opportunity to do one of two great things for our nation:  Eliminate the State of the Union tradition entirely, or move it to America’s heartland, where it belongs, and deliver it to real Americans.

Contrary to all the bad information spread all over social media yesterday, no president is under any constitutional obligation to give this speech.  All the constitution requires of the president is that he or she “from time to time give to Congress information of the State of the Union and recommend to their Consideration such measures as he shall judge necessary and expedient.”

Right up until the despicable Woodrow Wilson decided to start making a speech in 1913 to congress to satisfy this obligation, American presidents had done it in writing. Somehow, the nation survived.

The truth is that this annual bit of Kabuki Theatre is a tremendous waste of time, nothing more than a tedious opportunity for a president to brag about successes that may or may not be real, for members of the opposition party to sit on their hands and scowl while he does so, and for mental midgets like former Illinois congressman Luis Guitierrez to get up and walk out. The entire exercise is incredibly tiresome and frankly not good in any way for the country.

President Trump would be doing the nation a huge favor by dispensing with this nonsense altogether. Just put the final version of the speech in the U.S. mail on January 29, addressed to Pelosi and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, and spend the rest of that day getting rid of more of the un-American legacy of Barack Hussein Obama. Productive work is always a good thing.

But if the President decides he must deliver a speech in order to take advantage of the opportunity to speak to the nation on national television unfiltered by the preening peacocks in the national fake news media, then why not take it out of the cesspool that is Washington, D.C., and move it to a place where real Americans live and work and breathe the flyover country air?

Take it to Pittsburgh, one of the great cities of America’s Rust Belt, which is experiencing a tremendous renaissance in recent years, and which led the way in delivering Pennsylvania’s electoral votes to Donald Trump in November, 2016. Rent the city’s largest arena and deliver the speech to 15,000 appreciative Pennsylvanians.

Or take it to Milwaukee, Wisconsin, the state the Pantsuit Princess couldn’t be bothered to visit, or Detroit, Michigan, states that hadn’t voted for any GOP presidential candidate in this century, but that helped put Trump in the White House in 2016.

If you want to take it to the heart of the Heartland, there’s always St. Louis or Dallas, both great cities with big, secure airports and millions of real citizens who would rush for the chance to witness a formal presidential speech.

But if he really wants to make an impact, if he really wants to focus on the border security issue, take the speech to San Antonio or even the Rio Grande Valley, fill the arena with 15,000 Texans, and invite every mother and father and sister and brother who have lost loved ones to violent crimes committed by illegal aliens to occupy the seats closest to the stage.

Regardless of where the speech is held, invite every member of congress to attend as well, but ensure that they all must stand on-line with everyone else, enter the arena along with everyone else, and sit in random seats out among the real people, so that they can experience the speech as real Americans experience it, and maybe even have a conversation with a real American or two while they’re doing it.

Wouldn’t that be something?

Donald Trump is a natural disrupter – always has been, always will be. He doesn’t just ignore stuffy and stupid and non-productive traditions – like the annual White House Correspondents Dinner – he destroys them. It’s why he was elected to the presidency in the first place.

By sending him her incredibly dishonest and embarrassingly vapid letter, Speaker San Fran Nan has handed Mr. Trump a golden opportunity to play the disrupter again, and do it in a way that turns a tedious and tiresome Washington D.C. tradition into an event that involves and benefits real, ordinary Americans.

Of course, the most likely outcome here is that the President will, later today, simply inform the Speaker that her concerns about “security” issues are absurd, and that he will be at the House Chamber at 9:00 ET on January 29 to deliver the speech as she invited him to do on January 3, which by the way was already two weeks into this fake, partial government “shutdown.”

But wouldn’t it be wonderful, wouldn’t it be a fantastic thing if he did something else?

Yes, yes it would. Just do it, Mr. President, do it for the people.

That is all.
