Cher Reaches Peak Liberal Hypocrisy With One 280 Character Tweet

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

Dear Cher: Sometimes it is better to stay silent and be thought a fool than to send out a tweet that proves the point.  – President Donald Trump (I never tire of typing those three glorious words) had already gotten pretty much every leading national Democrat in America to admit they really don’t want to have all those inconvenient illegal immigrants placed in their self-designated “sanctuary” cities and states. From Nancy Pelosi to Chuck Schumer to Mayor Pete to Lieawatha to Spartacus, they’d all weighed in by reciting the same talking points script to their co-conspirator reporters that the Trump plan to bus illegals to cities that claimed they actually want them was somehow “cruel” and “uses these migrants as political pawns,” as if that isn’t exactly what the Democrats have been doing with them for the last two decades. The rank hypocrisy was literally breathtaking to behold.

But things got even better on Sunday. So, so, sooooo much better, when the ’60s pop relic and current Resistance icon Cher weighed in with her own unique combination of hubris, arrogance, ignorance and abject hypocrisy. She did it all on Twitter, because of course she did:

As I compile this piece this morning, that tweet has more than 40,000 likes, one of which is mine. I’d like it 1,000 times if only I could, because it is absolutely the perfect expression of today’s mindless leftist hypocrisy, all in less than 280 characters. It is quite literally a masterpiece of the liberal hypocrite art.

See, y’all, this mindless cretin celebrity understands helping struggling immigrants in other cities – y’all should be doing all y’all can because these immigrants are all, like, struggling and stuff or something. But HER CITY – you know, like, Los Angeles and stuff? Why, HER CITY is special. Unlike any of y’all’s cities, CHER’S CITY ISN’T TAKING CARE OF ITS OWN. So it’s all, like, totes special and stuff or something.

See, unlike El Paso or Las Cruces – which appealed to the federal government for more help on Sunday due to the flood of illegals into its friendly confines – or Laredo or San Antonio or Tucson or Albuquerque or any of those towns out here in what Cher calls “flyover country”, HER CITY – that’s, ummmm…Los Angeles, right? – has Citizens WHO LIVE ON THE STREETS! Is that really possible? We’ve never seen that before in Austin or Dallas or Houston or Oklahoma City or Denver. Have we?

Oh, but there’s more – poor Cher! See, HER CITY has PPL WHO – are you ready for this? – LIVE BELOW THE POVERTY LINE, & [ARE] HUNGRY! (ummmm…what’s a “PPL”? I dunno, but Cher sez it’s a thing or something, so it must be a thing. Or something.)

Y’all, it’s soo, soooooooo sad out there in CHER’S CITY, like, you know, Los Angeles or something? And it’s even worse than that, see, ‘cuz some of those PPL WHO LIVE BELOW THE POVERTY LINE & HUNGRY that HER CITY ISN’T TAKING CARE OF ARE VETS! ummmm….what’s a VET? Is that, like, a cat doctor or something?

But it’s not sad out there in OUR CITIES, ‘cuz we don’t have PPL or VETS or … something. And stuff.

Anyways, y’all, we gotta do something in our own towns, ‘cuz if CHER’S CITY and Her State Can’t Take Care of Its Own (many are VETS and even PPL), How Can It Take Care Of More   ummmm…I think there should be, like, a question mark there or something?

Excuse me while I go throw up.

That is all. For now.

Why Trump’s Sanctuary City Plan has Democrats so Enraged

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

Prepare for exploding Democrat heads all weekend long. – Smelling a golden opportunity handed to him by the Washington Post yesterday to keep an issue very favorable to him alive at the top of the news cycle this weekend, President Donald Trump (I never tire of typing those three glorious words) continued to push a plan to place all these tens of thousands of illegal aliens invading our Southern border into Democrat-run sanctuary cities with this tweet late Friday evening:

Given the left’s obsession with the President’s Twitter account, this single message alone most likely ensures that this topic will be first up on every Sunday morning fake news program. Regardless of how viciously the liberal talking heads attack President Trump on the issue, this will in fact amount to about five hours of free, favorable air time for the President and cause him to rise in the polls as a result. President Trump knows this, I know this, you know this, but it seems as if the vapid, TDS-enraged Democrats and their media co-conspirators will never figure it all out. I’m cool with that.

It’s important to understand why the Democrats and the fake news media are so enraged by this plan. The President may or may not be serious about it – that remains up in the air – but that really doesn’t much matter in the grand scheme of things. From the perspective of both President Trump and the Democrat leadership, it’s the simple fact of having the public debate over this idea that really matters, for a couple of big reasons.

I discussed one reason in last night’s Evening Campaign Update: The Democrats hate being forced to engage in this public discussion for the simple fact that it exposes the ultimate end game of their “sanctuary city” sham. Democrat mayors in Democrat-run cities from coast to coast have spent the last several years refusing to cooperate with ICE and other federal law enforcement agencies in a very organized effort to protect criminal illegal aliens who they view as ripe prospects for illegal voting in the near term. In the longer term, the Democrats hope these illegals will ultimately receive some sort of blanket amnesty and become a big, new voting bloc for their party.

Democrats don’t care if these criminal aliens are murderers or rapists – they truly don’t care. All they see and care about is potential votes, whether legal or illegal, because the overriding goal of the Democrat Party since the elevation of the Clintons has been simple: The acquisition and maintenance of political power.

Their problem with this public debate is that the President’s proposal makes all kinds of sense to anyone who is able to reason logically. This of course excludes mind-numbed Democrat voters, but they only make up about a third of the adult population. What frightens the Democrats and media so much is that independent voters are by and large able to reason logically, so when they hear this proposal, most of them think, “Ok, makes sense to me.” They then marvel that any Democrat politician, like San Fran Nan, whose own home city has been protecting murderers and rapists for over a decade now, would oppose it.

Oh, my, Democrats can’t have that, now, can they?

All of which leads to the second reason why the Democrats are so enraged by this plan: Because it negates their own long-term plan for placement of millions of illegal aliens into Republican and/or battleground states.

Starting in the Clinton Administration, the Democrat plan has been to keep as many illegals as possible in border “red” states like Texas and Arizona, so that when their longed-for amnesty comes about, those “red” states will suddenly turn into “blue” states. During the Obama years, that plan was broadened to include putting thousands of illegals onto planes and buses and shipping them to other “red” or borderline states like Michigan, Ohio, North Carolina, Colorado and Wisconsin for the same political ends.

They have almost gotten to critical mass now at which a blanket amnesty would in fact render all of those states – with the possible exception of Texas – as permanent Democrat states, making it virtually impossible for the GOP to ever elect another president.

This has been the long-term plan of the Democrat Party for a quarter of a century now. They cannot possibly conduct an honest public debate on the merits, so their immediate response is what we have seen: Have national Dems like Pelosi and Schumer and Beto and Mayor Pete demonize the President for his supposed “cruelty” in using all of these “innocent” illegals as “political pawns”, while the Democrat mayors of those sanctuary cities issue pious statements claiming that they would welcome such an influx into their already bankrupt towns as they pray to whatever god they might worship that it never happens.

Apparently, when President Trump broached this concept at a recent White House meeting a few weeks ago, it was quickly scuttled by then-Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen and her department’s lawyers. Nielsen simply lacked the intestinal fortitude to do what is necessary to stem this border invasion.

Kevin MacAleenan is now the acting Secretary of DHS. We may well find out very soon whether or not he has the stomach for the battle or not. This plan makes all kinds of good sense – which is why the Democrats and media are so outraged by it – and should be pursued by the President and his Administration in a very public and aggressive way.

Fill those sanctuary cities up with these invaders, Mr. Trump. Let the Democrats take full responsibility for their irrational sanctuary rhetoric. It will be a good lesson for all concerned.

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.

On Jared Kushner, Whose Anonymous Sources Are We To Believe?

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

  • Anonymous sources everywhere, but never a one to believe.:  Fox News reports this morning that an anonymous source “familiar with the situation” has told their reporter that Jared Kushner did not in fact raise the idea of opening a back channel of communication with Russian officials last December, contrary to all the fake reports all over the fake news media the last few days, reports that were also based solely on anonymous sources.  The subject was, according to Fox’s anonymous source, actually broached by Russian officials, and would have resulted in a single telephone conversation regarding the Obama Administration’s atrocious, utter failure of a Syria policy, not a permanent back channel, as the NYTimes and WaPo have claimed.  So whose anonymous source is to be believed – the ones that resulted in the Weekly World News-like, sensationalist reports in the Times and Post, or the one that results in what sounds like a far more likely scenario at Fox News?  In today’s America, the lines of belief will no doubt break down largely along partisan lines.
  • Today’s Required Reading.:  Kurt Schlichter pens a fantastic piece at Townhall.com titled, “Liberals Are Shocked To Find We’re Starting To Hate Them Right Back.”  Seriously, just read it.  You’ll be glad you did.
  • That’s the way it has always been for communists in America.:  In a rare bit of real news at its site,  Politico has a report out about how tough it is for Bernie Sanders supporters these days, as it seems that his supporters are finding it darn near impossible to capture actual levers of power, even within the commie-friendly confines of the Democrat Party.  Gosh, I just feel so, so bad for these people, victims as they are of their own brand of nitwittery.
  • Still prosecuting the last war after all these years…:  Terry Frei, a sports reporter for the Denver Post, was fired within two hours of the end of the Indy 500, after he tweeted that he is “uncomfortable” that a Japanese driver had won the race on Memorial Day.  Some will moan about the Post’s cow-towing to the Gods of political correctness, but dang, man, World War II ended 72 years ago. Can’t we all just get along at long last?  Holy cow.
  • But hey, WWIII could be just around the corner, if John McCain gets his way.:  The Senator From The News Media, in an interview with the Australian Broadcasting Company, said that “[Vladimir] Putin is a bigger threat than ISIS.”  The tirelessly warmongering Senator was unfortunately not asked by the interviewer where he would place himself in that same ranking, but most informed observers would put him way up there.
  • That escalated quickly.:  When Texas Republican state representative Matt Rinaldi called ICE after he was threatened by some in a very large and loud group of pro-sanctuary city protesters who had gathered in the state capitol building while the legislature was in session, Democratic state rep. Pancho Navarez threatened to kill him.  This is what the Democrat Party of today refers to as peaceful debate of the issues.
  • Meanwhile, in the realm of winning…:  While the Democrats and the fake news media continue their tireless efforts to distract the American people from reality, the Trump Administration keeps on winning, systematically erasing huge chunks of the Obama “legacy”, such as it is.  This includes progress on building the promised wall along the southern border, where, as the DC Examiner reports, planning is well underway, contracts are being bid out, and there is, despite fake media reports to the contrary, plenty of money in the budget to start construction.

Just another day in fake news media America.

That is all.
