Godspeed to Sarah Huckabee Sanders

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

Boy, are we going to miss Sarah Huckabee Sanders. –  President Donald Trump (I never tire of typing those three glorious words) has had no better able nor more loyal advisor than White House Spokesperson Sarah Sanders. After the President’s initial choice of Sean Spicer for the job turned out to be a failed experiment, to put it nicely, Sanders stepping into the job felt like a breath of fresh air.

Looking back, it is difficult to think of anyone who could have done the intensely difficult job of dealing with an openly-hostile pack of rabid dogs in the White House “press corps” quite so well. She took every question, answered all the taunts and humiliated the little CNN pissant Jim Acosta repeatedly, which was a true service to the nation.

Ultimately, Sanders should be thanked for killing the stupid, counterproductive modern habit of holding a daily White House press briefing. The need to end that daily atrocity on our nation was something I began writing about way back in February of 2017, and had also written about it occasionally during the Bush and even Reagan Administrations (yeah, yeah, I know: I’m old). There is literally no reason at all for any Republican administration to hold these daily baby-sitting sessions for a pack of fake journalists who consider it their job to abuse whomever the spokesperson happens to be and lie about what they and the President have to say.

In reality, most of these fake journalists are true enemies of the people, potential threats to the President and his personnel, and should never have been granted a pass to the White House grounds to begin with. In this Administration, it’s gotten to the point where most of them have served as active participants in an effort to execute a coup d’etat on American soil. That kind of behavior should never be rewarded.

This is what and who Sarah Sanders has had to deal with on a daily basis for the past two and a half years. Thankfully, it has now been 95 days and counting since she last held a “daily” press briefing, and we should all hope there is never another one during this administration. President Trump holds at least one press “gaggle” at which he answers questions himself, as only he can, almost every day, and many days – like yesterday – holds two or three such impromptu availabilities. These gatherings and the President’s own Twitter feed are far and away the most effective communications tool for this particular presidency.

So, who will replace Sanders? Good question, and the Washington Examiner has a good piece this morning examining a dozen possibilities. Of these dozen, I can tell you two who won’t be getting the job: Laura Ingraham and Ainsley Airhart of Fox News. Ingraham would be terrific in the role, but why would she give up her lucrative gig on Fox to take on this daily grind for a fraction of the pay? Hard to imagine.

Airhart is fine as the host of a morning show, but she would be eaten alive by the frothing-at-the-mouth press corps. She wouldn’t last a month. No.

Hogan Gidley, who has served as Sanders’ Deputy throughout her tenure and frequently stepped into the role, is probably the favorite. He has done fine work himself and probably deserves the appointment.

You will note he is also one of just three men on the Examiner’s list. There is a good reason for this, which is that this is a President who really probably needs a woman in this role. He so alpha-male-ish, so blunt and blustery in his own demeanor, that he really needs a softer voice and presence who is also firm and tough as his spokesperson.

If it isn’t Gidley, my personal choice from that list would be Mercedes Schlapp, who currently serves as the White House Director of Strategic Communications. She has been a star in that role and would likely provide a very seamless transition from Sanders.

One name that is not on that list but should be is that of Mollie Hemingway, currently a Senior Editor at The Federalist. Hemingway is a frequent contributor on Fox News, appearing a couple of times every week on Bret Baier’s Fox Report panel where she regularly schools the various fake media hacks Baier likes to bring on for “balance.” No idea if Hemingway has any interest in the job, by my goodness, she would be a great choice.

Regardless of who her replacement happens to be, the nation owes a debt of gratitude to Sarah Sanders. She has been a true star, a shining light of stability in what has been a very chaotic White House on many days. Rumor is that she may be planning to run for Arkansas Governor in 2022, when current GOP incumbent Asa Hutchinson will be termed out. If she does, I’ll be an out-of-state contributor to her campaign.

Godspeed.

That is all.

ICYMI: President Trump Tells Sarah Sanders “Don’t Bother” With Press Briefings

The Afternoon Campaign Update

(Because the Campaign Never Ends)

Just a week into his presidency, I briefly advocated in this space that President Trump should cancel the idiotic, 45 year-old tradition of holding daily press briefings at the White House. In May of 2017, I penned a longer piece on the subject that can be read at this link:  Kill the White House Press Briefings Now.

For those too lazy or time-constrained to read the whole thing, here is part of what I said in that piece:

“The briefings lost all meaning in 2009, when the fake news media decided to simply perform as pathetic lapdogs to their hero for 8 long years.  Obama could have ended them at any time he wanted to, and you’d have never heard a peep of protest from CNN.

In the Trump Administration, the briefings have devolved into nothing but forums for aspiring peacocks like Acosta to get his relished camera time and for belligerent dopes like April Ryan to throw out the most idiotic questions their tiny minds can come up with.  Trump’s two press spokesmen – Sean Spicer and Sarah Huckabee Sanders – are assaulted on a daily basis, cross-examined by hostile reporters who in fact consider them and the President they represent to be mortal enemies, and none of the Administration’s points of view are ever given fair treatment in any media reporting outside of Fox News or the editorial page of the Wall Street Journal.”

That was 20 months ago, and the situation with the fakeness of our national news media has only progressed to the point at which one can no longer trust anything they see on television anymore.  Ryan Fournier had a very insightful tweet about this phenomenon today:

Yes, that’s it exactly. Americans no longer receive anything resembling “news” from our news media – all we receive is a string of talking points developed in unison each day by the major media outlets and the national Democrat Party. When this narrative falls apart – as happened with the infamous fake news report from Buzzfeed late last week – then a new narrative is invented to take is place, i.e., the “incident” faked-up by a professional agitator who assaulted a bunch of Catholic high school kids in Washington.

When the major news organs refuse to report anything that conflicts with the dictated narrative, what is the point of briefing their fake reporters each day in the White House Briefing Room? Clearly, there is no point.

When I wrote that piece in May 2017, I noted there had been just 10 such briefings in the previous 32 days. Steadily over time, the frequency of these useless events has fallen off, from a few days per week to a handful of days each month, to almost none at all thus far this year. During that same period, the frequency of the President’s own engagements – which are a far more effective means of getting out his message than through a spokesperson – with the fake reporters has steadily increased.

This has obviously been a planned phasing-out of the briefings, and earlier today President Trump basically said as much in this tweet:

Thus, this becomes yet another useless feature of the D.C. Swamp done away with by our current POTUS.

Next Step: in a few months, formally announce that the briefings are cancelled entirely and severely restrict the broad access to the White House grounds currently enjoyed by the pack of enemies of the people known as the White House Press Corps.

This, friends, is progress.

That is all.

End the White House Press Briefing Now

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Tired of all this #Winning yet? – Some great numbers for President Donald Trump (I still never tire of typing those three words) in the latest Rasmussen survey.  His public approval rating is back up to 50%, which is 5 points higher than Barack Hussein Obama’s rating was at this same point in his first term.

But wait, there’s more!  As if that weren’t #WINNING enough, the President’s approval rating among African American voters has now ticked up to a princely (for a Republican) 29%, almost double his 15% support among Black voters a year ago.  In the 2016 election, Candidate Trump received just 8% of the Black vote.

If that rising support level were to translate into the President receiving even 15% of the Black vote in his 2020 re-election bid, he would win 40 states and 370 electoral votes.

All this #WINNING truly never gets old, does it?

Your Fake News Media in Action! – Hey, look, the New York Times hired another racist for its editorial board.  The comely Mizzzz Sarah Jeong has a long history of posting the most heinous sort of anti-White racism on her Twitter feed, and the editors at the NYTimes think that’s just peachy keen.

After the story went viral on social media yesterday, the Times put out an unintentionally hilarious explanation in which it claims Mizzzz Sarah Jeong was put through a “rigorous vetting” process.  Mind you that these are the exact same people who rigorously vetted one Ali Watson, a reporter with a long history of selling sex in exchange for illegal leaks of classified information, and who still employ this same Ali Watson many weeks after her sex-for-leaks practices were publicly exposed.

So, just standard operating procedure at your New York Times, a fake newspaper that actually has no professional standards at all.  You couldn’t make this stuff up if you wanted to.

Why are we having these press briefings again? It’s an honest question. – As readers have all no doubt seen by now, Little Jimmy Acosta threw another of his periodic snit fits at the White House press briefing on Thursday.  You can watch the fun here if you haven’t already seen it.

After he got righteously smacked down by Sarah Huckabee Sanders, Acosta fled the room like any petulant 3 year-old child would do, and then rushed to brag about it on Twitter, as any 25 year-old Millennial child would do:

So, he’s a big, bad man who demanded a particular answer to his question from the “little woman” in his life, and when the “little woman” wouldn’t give him the answer he demanded, he stormed out of the room.  No idea if Acosta is married, but if he is I really feel sorry for that “little woman.”

Not even a week ago, the same Little Jimmy Acosta was bitching on his Twitter account that the White House had only held something like 6 formal press briefings in July.  So, Little Jimmy, having the mindset of the typical 3 year-old child, is angry when the briefings don’t occur, and he’s even more angry when they do occur and he can’t get the “little woman” to say what he wants her to say.

All of which brings me to this question, which I’ve raised many times before:  Why is the White House continuing this farce?  Why is it doing any press briefings at all?  Why is it still allowing these people – many of whom, like Acosta and the execrable April Ryan are clear enemies of the state – to roam around the White House grounds like a pack of rabid dogs every day?

Think about it:  What actual “news” did the public get out of Thursday’s briefing that it would not have gotten otherwise?  Can you think of a single thing?  I can’t.

There’s a reason for this:  The fake reporters in that room have no real interest in reporting real news.  The people in that room are only interested in getting their face on television, and in asking some gotcha question that might produce an answer that would give them a clickbait fake story.  So why continue to place Ms. Sanders in the position of having to face this pack of anti-Trump animals on a regular basis?

As I’ve pointed out in the past, the U.S. Republic somehow survived for two full centuries without this press briefing model.  The daily press briefings did not become a thing until the 1970s, yet somehow we had a far better-informed public then than we do today, after 40 years of the use of this mode of White House communication.

Every presidential administration has a duty to keep the public informed of what it is doing.  But no administration has any duty at all to cater to the whims of a bunch of preening, self-promoting jackasses who want to be free to wander around the halls of the White House doing what amounts to opposition research for the opposition political party.

Yesterday’s latest Acosta-led farce is just the latest in a very long line of demonstrations that this mode of communicating is outdated and should be ended.  In the 21st century, there are myriad other ways for the White House to keep the press and the public informed of the actions it is taking on behalf of the American people.  A great example is the President’s own Twitter account, which he uses each and every day for that exact purpose.

Donald Trump is an unconventional President in almost every way.  So why is he still insisting on using this tired old non-functioning model of communication with the press?

Time to stop the madness, Mr. President.  Long past time, actually.  End these press briefings now, before one of these rabid dogs physically assaults your press secretary.

Just another day in all fake news all the time America.

That is all.

Wait, Comey, Clapper and Brennan Still Have Security Clearances?

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Yeah, “judgment free” this, buddy. – A man was arrested at a Planet Fitness on Monday when other customers complained that he was working out in the nude, seldom a good idea at a public facility.  When the cops came to run him off to the local pokey, he told them that he thought he was in a “judgment free” zone.  So, obviously a Democrat.  I swear I don’t make this stuff up.  Who could?

You’re really not very good at this whole Twitter thing, Jim. – Ex-FBI Director and current Teenage Drama Queen James Comey issued the following tweet on Monday:

For the record, this goofy tweet comes less than two days after President Trump, in a nationally-televised interview, criticized Putin about all sorts of things and said if Putin continues meddling in U.S. elections he would become the Russian President’s “worst enemy.”  That interview came just days after several other nationally televised interviews in which President Trump repeatedly criticized Putin.  Those interviews come weeks and months after President Trump implemented a long series of the toughest sanctions the U.S. has targeted against Russia in decades, far tougher than anything Barack Obama ever dreamed of doing.

Mr. Comey should really take a different direction with his shameless attention-seeking exercises.  This whole Twitter thing is obviously not among his core competencies.

Speaking of ex-Obama officials shamelessly seeking attention for profit, White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders informed the collection of creeps and derelicts we call the White House press corps that President Trump is, at the urging of Senator Rand Paul, looking into the revocation of the security clearances for Comey, John Brennan, James Clapper, Michael Hayden, Susan Rice and Andrew McCabe.  Sanders cited concerns that these sleazeballs were monetizing their security access and improperly sharing classified information with the media, which is undeniably true of all of them.

One reporter told his Twitter followers that there was an audible gasp from the fake reporters in the briefing room when Sanders made her announcement.  Yes, one can only imagine the level of panic that immediately began to set in among this group of lazy, shiftless gas bags who have spent the last two years just cutting and pasting whatever this collection of Obama loyalist seditionists have fed them into their rote articles.  Now suddenly, they face the prospect of having to actually engage in real journalistic pursuits for their information, rather than just being sock puppets.  Life is hard, folks.

Some of the reactions were truly priceless.   James Clapper told an interviewer on CNN, where he monetizes his security clearance 7 days a week, that “I don’t know what to say,” he added. “I think this is just a very, very petty — a petty thing to do. And that’s about all I’ll say about it.”  Yes, petty, sort of like if he went on MSNBC or CNN and trashed your reputation on live television 5 times a week, huh?

Jennifer Rubin, a pathetic hack who serves as one of the Washington Post’s kennel of fake “conservative” writers, said this in a tweet:

So, this nitwit is so unalterably vacuous that she actually believes that there is some sort of constitutional right for a person to maintain a national security clearance.  Ok, where do I go to get mine?  Holy cow.

Interestingly, Brennan, who has been so hyper-vocal and outrageously over-the-top in his criticisms of President Trump – even to the point of accusing him of committing treason in his meeting with Vladimir Putin last week – has so far remained silent on the matter.  In fact, that July 16 tweet accusing a sitting U.S. President of treasonous acts is the last tweet this particular seditionist has issued.  Since then, it’s been radio silence on the Brennan Twitter account.  We also haven’t seen him raise his ugly mug on television since that outburst.  Maybe someone convinced him to get back on his meds.

Back to the question at hand, what possible legitimate purpose does it serve for any of these people to still have security clearances to begin with? It’s unimaginable that this step has not already been taken, given the unending efforts by this pack of disloyal seditionists to bring down the Trump presidency.

Some buffoon talking heads are arguing that it’s important for high-ranking ex-intelligence officials to retain their security clearances in case the current administration needs their advice.  Wait, what?  Are we really to think that President Trump is going to call Brennan or Comey up in the midst of some international crisis and ask for their advice?  Clapper?  The insipid Susan Rice?   These people have literally nothing useful to offer this administration.

The only advice Susan Rice could offer anyone is how to bald-face lie about an international incident on five news shows on the same Sunday morning.  Please.  Plus, Clapper, Comey and Brennan have all blatantly perjured themselves in congressional testimony in their ongoing efforts to harm the current administration – that’s just a matter of clear public record at this point.

There’s an old lawyer joke that goes something like this:

What do you call 20 lawyers with cement blocks chained to their ankles at the bottom of the Pacific Ocean?

Answer:  A good start.

Same answer here.  Do it, Mr. President.  Just do it.  And please, add Peter Strzok to the list.

Just another day in how does John Brennan still have a security clearance America.

That is all.

Depraved Democrats Find Their Evil Plan Isn’t Working. Expect More Depravity to Follow.

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Barack Obama and the Pantsuit Princess are jealous. – Turkey’s dictator Tayyip Erdogan “won” another heavily-rigged fake election over the weekend, and will now serve as that country’s “president” through 2023.  For stealing and suppressing enough votes to allow him to hold onto power, the ThompsonReuters fake news agency called Erdogan “the most popular but also the most divisive politician in modern Turkish history”.  The Fainting Felon has long had the “divisive” part down pat, but still aspires to achieve such “popularity.”

Leftists hate you and want to take away your freedoms, Part 11,985. – San Fran Nan was unusually quiet over the weekend, possibly due to recent polls showing her public image with voters is toxic to her Party’s chances in the November elections, so the Democrat Party’s “depravity-and-dementia-on-display” factor had reached a low ebb on Saturday morning.  But then, like clockwork, Mad Maxine Waters kicked her lunatic self into gear..

Rep. Waters drummed up a few dozen people who were either her nutjob supporters, paid activists, bullied staff or, most likely, some combination of the three to hold a demonstration outside of the Wilshire Federal Building in Los Angeles Saturday afternoon.  There, she engaged in full-on incitement to violence, urging leftists all over the nation to engage in harassment of Trump Administration personnel anytime they come across them in public.

Falsely claiming that President Trump is “sacrificing our children” along the southern border – because of course Maxine Waters has to begin any speech with an inflammatory statement that is a lie on multiple levels – the raging dimwit went on to state that “History will record while he tried to step on all of us, we kicked him in his rear and step on him,” and, “If you think we’re rallying now, you ain’t seen nothin’ yet,” because, of course, it’s the rallying that matters most.  *sigh*

Not finished yet (because of course she wasn’t), the braying buffoon then declared, without evidence, that “God is on our side!” before going onto threaten every member of the President’s cabinet:

“Let’s make sure we show up wherever we have to show up and if you see anybody from that Cabinet in a restaurant, in a department store, at a gasoline station, you get out and you create a crowd and you push back on them, and you tell them they’re not welcome anymore, anywhere.”

This is clear incitement to violence, a threat that, had it been made by any Republican office-holder during the Obama years would have been followed very quickly by a visit from the Secret Service, and which would have been immediately condemned by almost the entire GOP congressional caucus.  But from the depraved Democrats?  Not a peep.

Mark my words and feel free to quote me on this:  These depraved and deranged Democrats are going to get someone killed pretty soon, and when that happens, all hell is going to break loose.  It’s just a year ago that a Bernie Sanders fanatic shot up the House GOP’s softball practice, and people like Waters are clearly attempting to create another, similar event.  If you vote for Democrats, you really should hang your head in shame.

Speaking of Depraved Democrats (because why not?), they’re not getting the polling results they want from their many public displays of anti-social depravity, and it’s really starting to show.

First, they obviously got some really bad early polling data from the now-infamous “Red Hen” incident, in which the owner of that restaurant in Lexington, VA kicked Sarah Huckabee Sanders and her family out on Friday evening, because the Party sent Maryland Congressman Elijah Cummings out on the Sunday morning talk shows to actually say that the restaurant “should have served her.”  Trust me, those are words that the tireless demagogue Cummings would never have uttered absent some external driver, and that external driver was almost certainly some really awful polling or focus group data.

Then there’s the whole illegal immigration issue.  It turns out that two weeks of screaming, wailing and heinously lying about the issue of illegal alien children being temporarily separated from their illegal alien parents has resulted in some truly horrible polling numbers for….wait for it… the Democrats!

In a new Rasmussen survey on the issue, fully 54% of likely voters (Rasmussen is the only pollster that polls likely voters) blame the parents, not the Trump Administration, for this situation, with only 35% blaming the government. But wait, it gets worse, much worse for the Democrats, as only 46% of independent voters blame the government on the issue.

And then this for a kicker:

“Fifty-four percent (54%) agree with President Trump when he says, “The United States will not be a migrant camp. And it will not be a refugee-holding facility – it won’t be.” Thirty percent (30%) disagree, while 16% are undecided.”

Think about the implications of that last finding:  Only 30% of likely voters are in favor of the Democrat Party’s real goal of unfettered, open borders for the United States after all of this hyperbolic rhetoric, lying, shouting and fake crying about the issue.  Somewhere, Rachel Maddow is probably shedding real tears for once.

Just another day in November is going to be a wipeout America.

That is all.

The Democrat Party Now Actively Supports Bigotry and Mob Rule

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

[Note:  The original text of this piece incorrectly identified Lexington as “suburb of Washington, DC.”  That’s what I get for relying on my memory for geographic accuracy.]

Leftists hate you and want to deprive you of your rights, Part 10,983. – The big news on Saturday came with the revelation that the owner of the Red Hen, a small, trendy restaurant located in the Northern Virginia town of Lexington, kicked White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders, her small children and five other members of her family out as they attempted to have dinner there on Friday evening.

The establishment’s owner, one Stephanie Wilkinson – who also apparently owns several other businesses in the small town – claims she received a call around 8:00 p.m. from her employees, notifying her that Sanders and her family were, gasp!, in the restaurant and expecting to plop down about $700 for dinner.  Noting that her employees were in a state of emergency snowflake triggering over having to serve a deputy of the President of the United States of America (because of course they were), Wilkinson donned her Birkenstocks, peasant dress and pussy hat (ok, just guessing there, but it seems likely) and rushed over to demand the paying, polite customers leave her greasy spoon immediately.

All parties present acknowledge that the Sanders party politely left.  Sanders even offered to pay for the privilege of being booted out of the place, but Wilkinson, being the raging nitwit she is, didn’t even want her money.  That would have been the end of it, but one of the spoiled, Millennial employees felt the need to post about it all on Facebook (because of course he did), which then produced an uproar on Twitter (because of course it did).

Sanders, in an effort to clear up all the lies being spread about the situation on social media, then decided to issue a tweet of her own about it:

This factual message set off another round of social media outrage, as leftist snowflakes became triggered all over again (because of course it did).

The fake news media is treating this situation as if it was just something that took place on the spur of the moment (because of course they are), that Wilkinson had no idea Sanders and her family were coming to dine in their restaurant and was just responding to the wishes of her triggered employees.

But let’s think about that:  The truth is that that Sanders had made the reservation well in advance.  The truth is that Ms. Wilkinson and her husband are leftist activists (because of course they are), as demonstrated conclusively in this photo:

This woman’s such a radical nitwit she even puts a pussy hat on her kid.  I’m sure he never gets bullied at school.

And then there’s this quote from her in the Washington Post:

“I’m not a huge fan of confrontation. I have a business, and I want the business to thrive. This feels like the moment in our democracy when people have to make uncomfortable actions and decisions to uphold their morals,” she told The Post.

Well, gosh, what better way to make someone feel uncomfortable than to see their name on your reservation list and hatch a plan to seat her party, get the drinks served and appetizer order taken, and then humiliate her, her young children and the five other people she’s with by kicking them out?

This of course comes just a few days after Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen was run out of MXDC, a really lousy imitation Mexican food place in Washington, by a bunch of activists who had been alerted to Nielsen’s presence by the restaurant’s staff.

As with everything else the Democrat Party and fake news media do these days, this is all stuff that is straight out of the Saul Alinsky playbook:  You take an issue, personalize it by demonizing selected targets and make it increasingly difficult for them to do their jobs or live their lives.  Very predictably, fake news media personalities and Democrat politicians praised the discriminatory actions against both women on social media, CNN and MSNBC.

Again, as with everything else the Democrats and fake media do, none of this is organic.  None of it just happens on the spur of the moment.  This tactic of humiliating Trump Administration personnel in public is obviously part of a well-coordinated plan, and it will soon spread to efforts to discriminate against anyone who publicly identifies as a Trump supporter if there are no visible consequences for the Red Hen or MXDC.

Conservatives have always shied away from engaging in boycotts or public demonstrations that attempt to shut such bigoted businesses down for two reasons:  1) most conservatives actually work for a living and don’t have the free time to go hang out on a street corner chanting stupid slogans and holding cardboard signs, and 2) conservatives know that any public gathering of more than 10 people whose politics are to the right of Fidel Castro will be spun by the fake news media as a gathering of Nazis.

But in today’s digital, Internet world, there are many other ways to negatively impact a business, especially those in the service industries.  Already, Red Hen’s website was crashed yesterday by a flood of people making fake reservations, as were their pages on Yelp and OpenTable by floods of people trying to post fake reviews.  Some enterprising hacker even managed to hack the business’s online menu with a note that dining there causes erectile dysfunction.

But back to the point, which is that the Democrats and their activist supporters in and out of the fake news media are now actively supporting discrimination and mob rule.  If you think otherwise, you just need to pay closer attention to what’s really happening in our society.

Way back in the early 1990s I wrote a newspaper column in which I discussed the increasingly obvious reality that Democrats’ ultimate goal was to make it illegal to be a Republican.  Many readers back then scoffed at that notion.  Those who are still among the living are probably not scoffing this morning.

Just another day in leftists hate you and want to take your freedoms away America.

Progressives Want to Kill You, But Starbucks Wants to Kill Itself

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Progressives want to kill you, Part I – The gals on The View never cease to humiliate themselves by putting their true hateful nature on display.  Generally, it’s the execrable Joy Behar leading the pack of shrews, but on Friday it was Whoopi Goldberg doing the honors, expressing her wish that the President of the United States be water-boarded.  You can watch the clip here.

Progressives want to kill you, Part II – Not to be outdone, Nicolle Wallace over at MSNBC expressed her desire to choke White House spokesperson and mother of three small children Sarah Huckabee Sanders:

Progressives want to kill you, Part III – Maxine Waters had another meltdown on the floor of the House of Representatives yesterday.  You can watch it for yourself here.  No need for further comment.

Progressives:  If they didn’t exist, no one in their right mind would ever want to make them up.

You sure about this?  Because it’s not going to end well for you. – In the wake of an incident in April in which two black men were ridiculously arrested while waiting for a third person to show up before they ordered some coffee, Starbucks Executive Chairman Howard Schulz announced on Friday that the restrooms in all Starbucks stores will now be open to everyone, regardless of whether a person orders anything or not.  Hilariously, Schulz then later told reporters that he doesn’t want his stores to become “public restrooms.”

Well, sorry, bubba, but that’s exactly what’s going to happen if you truly do carry out your stated policy.  This will be especially true in the interiors of large cities run by Democrats.

True story:  I was in Austin a few weeks ago, and needed to kill a little time, so I popped into one of the city’s downtown Starbucks.  After getting my coffee, I looked around the otherwise crowded store and noted several empty tables in one corner, so I went and grabbed one.  As I was booting up my laptop, I became aware of a heated conversation involving two distinctly different male voices coming from the table over my left shoulder.

After this had gone on for a few minutes, with the conversation becoming increasingly profane and nasty, I glanced over my shoulder and realized that this “conversation” was in fact being carried on by a single man, an obvious vagrant who had taken shelter inside the Starbucks.  I then understood why that area of the otherwise very busy store had been vacated.

If Mr. Schulz’s policy is actually implemented, this scene and much worse is about to be replicated in pretty much every inner-city Starbucks store in the country.  The restrooms will not only become “public,” they will also become run-down, filthy and bereft of paying customers.  This is not a guess, this is not a likelihood, this is an inevitable outcome.

The best news about this new Starbucks policy is that it will create a very fertile playing field for new competitors to move into the downtown areas of our nation’s large cities.  Because people are still going to want their coffee – they’ll just want to be able to enjoy it without feeling threatened or accosted.

Has anyone seen Harvey Weinstein lately? – Mysterious massive “globster” creature washes up on Philippines beach.

Well, uh, McCain’s not a “conservative,” so… – Writing for Reason, Matt Welch published a piece yesterday that asks this burning question:  “Will McCain-style Conservatism Live On?”

Of course, the answer is that so long as consummate RINOs like Lindsey Graham, Jeff Flake, Susan Collins and Bob Corker infest the United States Senate, then the McCain-style whatever-it-is will indeed live on.  Calling this combination of open borders, gigantic spending, war-mongering and social liberalsm in any way “conservatism” is a bad joke, and Mr. Welch should know better.

The good news here, though, is that the RINOs are leaving the U.S. Congress in droves these days, with Flake and Corker being two among the many Senate and House members who have chosen not to seek re-election this year.  Their replacements are going to be real conservatives who understand that the Democrat Party declared war on America’s culture and institutions way back in 1992, and the Republican Party utterly failed to engage them in it until Donald Trump became President last January 20.

Hopefully, more RINOs will follow the wonderful examples set by Flake and Corker and take the easy way out over the next couple of election cycles.  It’s best for everyone.

Just another day in Progressives want to kill you America.

That is all.

The Deep State has Won a Few Battles, but is Losing its War on Trump

The Evening Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

So, let’s review the evolution of the Deep State Cabal’s strategy to rid the D.C. establishment of this troublesome interloper, Donald J. Trump:

  • It began as an effort to fix the 2016 general election – devising a tortured rationale to let the Pantsuit Princes off the hook on her email crimes; spending millions on a fake Trump dossier designed to damage her opponent’s reputation; feeding debate questions to the Coughing Crook in advance; paying an assortment of women to come out of the woodwork to accuse Trump of having affairs in the weeks leading up to Election Day, etc., etc.
  • Having failed in that effort, it morphed into an effort to create so many leaks by Obama holdovers and other deep states inserts into the Administration that it would make it impossible for Trump to govern.  Trump and his few loyalists responded by doubling down on their agenda.
  • Having failed in that effort, it morphed in the spring of 2017 into the Rosenstein/Comey conspiracy to dummy up false grounds for the appointment of a Special Counsel in the person of their best buddy, Robert Mueller.  Mueller’s initial goal was to find criminal wrongdoing by the President.  The problem there was that there is no such crime called “collusion,” and no president can be prosecuted for exercising his constitutional authority, meaning there is no case to be made for “obstruction of justice.”  Trump and his loyalists doubled down on their agenda again.
  • Having failed in that effort, but with congressional preference polling late in 2017 indicating the Democrats had a chance to win control of the House of Representatives in the midterm elections, Mueller’s goal morphed into an effort to build a plausible case for impeachment, and to leak as much damaging information has he could to a cooperating national news media in order to drive down Trump’s public approval numbers.  If he and his media agents could drive the President’s approval ratings down into the low-30s or even into the 20s, even Republicans would likely be willing to vote for impeachment.  Thus, we saw the efforts to claim Trump is mentally unstable, then the efforts to claim his health is bad, then the former playmates and porn stars crawling out of the woodwork to claim 10-12 year-old affairs, and on and on.  Once again, Trump and his loyalists doubled-down on the agenda.

But a funny thing happened to Mueller on his way to this latest goal:  his tactics became so blatantly abusive, and the media’s efforts to justify them so transparently and laughably phony, that the public has become repulsed by the tactics, not the target.  That reaction to the abusive charade, combined with a booming economy and a raft of foreign policy achievements thought to have been unimaginable in the previous administration, has resulted in the President’s public approval ratings climbing to their highest level in 14 months.  In fact, in the daily Rasmussen survey – the lone periodic poll that focuses on likely voters – Mr. Trump’s approval as of today sits at 51%.

So, yet again, the Cabal’s strategy, as implemented by the Special Counsel, the deep state thugs embedded within DOJ and the FBI, and supported by the national fake news media, has miserably failed.

Recently, though, we’ve seen the strategy shift yet again.  The newest strategy, which appears to have been implemented around mid-March, is to viciously assault and character assassinate anyone loyal to Trump in order to ultimately make it impossible for Trump to find people willing to work for him, and thus make it impossible for him to govern.  Call it Chaos Strategy #2.

It started with Scott Pruitt, the extremely effective EPA Administrator, who has been the subject of a withering assault by disloyal EPA employees, the radical environmental community, and the fake news media.  The media effort has been led by the degenerates at the New York Times, who have now filed more than 60 hit pieces targeting Pruitt in the last month.  At one point a few weeks ago, it appeared that the President was preparing to cave to this media pressure and fire Pruitt, but changed his mind at the last minute and stood firm.

That will ultimately prove to be a crucial decision point in all of this.  Had Trump caved on Pruitt, then the walls may well have eventually fallen in around him, because other senior people under assault – like Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke and Chief of Staff John Kelly – might have lost confidence in the President having their backs and jumped ship.

This Chaos Strategy #2 is what the repulsive character assassination of Admiral Ronnie Jackson was about, it’s what the assault on new National Security Advisor John Bolton’s integrity was all about, it’s what the Senate Democrats’ demonization of Secretary of State Mike Pompeo was all about, it’s what the jack-booted raid on the home, office and hotel room of Trump attorney Michael Cohen was about, and it’s even what the White House Correspondents Dinners attacks on Sarah Huckabee Sanders and Kellyanne Conway were about.

Because Trump stood firm on Pruitt, this Chaos Strategy #2 is rapidly failing as well.  Yeah, they claimed a scalp with Admiral Jackson’s withdrawal, but today his main accuser, Vice President Mike Pence’s personal physician, Dr. Jennifer Pena, was forced to resign.  And yes, Cohen remains under assault, but there’s a long way to go on that situation as well.

Meanwhile, Bolton is the new National Security Advisor, Pompeo is now firmly ensconced as Secretary of State, Zinke is still reorganizing the Interior Department and its priorities, and Pruitt is still repealing the anti-American legacy of Barack Obama’s EPA.

So the Chaos Strategy #2 is failing as miserably as all the preceding Deep State strategies failed.  Meanwhile, prospects for the much-touted Democrat “Blue Wave” election wins in November are rapidly fading, the President is on the verge of one of the most astounding foreign policy victories in American history related to Korea, and the main report from DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz will be dropped within days.  That’s when the fun will really begin.

The Deep State’s gonna need another new strategy, and fast.

That is all.

Michelle Wolf Reminds Us Why Donald Trump Won

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

This is why Donald Trump won. – Here  are the highlights for the fake news media over the past week:

  • At the White House Correspondents Dinner, aka, Hollywood Gala for Ugly People, a fourth-rate comic emcees the event and hurls insults at the working mother of three young children who sacrificed her entire Saturday to be present to represent the President.  The press corps yucks it up at her expense, and only later tries to backtrack after the realization that, hey, maybe that wasn’t exactly an appropriate thing to do.
  • After years-old tweets are dug up which show that MSNBC fake host Joy Reid is a homophobic bigot, she makes up a ludicrous lie about having been “hacked” and files a false report with the FBI.  After the FBI investigates and demonstrates that Reid is lying, Reid issues a Clintonian non-apology apology, and everyone in the fake news media rallies to support her because, you know, she’s “a different person now.”
  • Tom Brokaw has his #MeToo moment, being accused by former colleague Linda Vester of gross sexual harassment, and all the same female fake journalists who have spent the last 20 years telling us that we simply must BELIEVE ALL WOMEN in situations such as this immediately rally not to the accuser’s side, but to defend Tom Brokaw, because he’s one of them, and presumably because Vester worked at Fox News after Brokaw’s years of harassment had led her to leave NBC.
  • Jake Tapper and CNN are revealed to have been active supporters, co-conspirators, in the plot to bring down a duly-elected President of the United States of America, and no “mainstream”, i.e., “fake” media outlet demands accountability.  Instead, they all march in lockstep with CNN and Tapper, completely burying the story.

Look, it’s one thing to be biased – the U.S. news media has always been biased in favor of socialist government policies and the Democrat party in general.  That’s just a fact of American life.  And it’s one thing to be snarky during the daily White House press briefings, as is often the case when reporters don’t feel like they’re getting the answers they would prefer to get.  There’s nothing wrong with aggressive questioning of those in power.

But there is something wrong with inviting White House employees to your annual gala, and then hiring some disgusting creep to rain down vicious lies and insults upon them as part of the “entertainment.”  There is something very wrong with having one of your on-air tele-prompter readers revealed to be a vicious bigot, then a bald-faced liar, and then having there be no consequences for such behavior because she has her “I hate Donald Trump” banter down pat.  And there is something really, really wrong when a news anchor and an entire fake news outlet is revealed to have not only actively coordinated with a conspiracy to commit a coup d’etat, but then awarded one of the conspirators a big contract to be an on-air “contributor” after he’d committed perjury about it all before a congressional committee.

There has been much shock and angst in the fake news media in recent days about a recent poll finding that 51% of Republican voters consider the media to be an enemy of the people, while only 37% think it plays its intended role of keeping politicians honest.  I’m frankly surprised that the 51% number wasn’t 20% higher, but then, the poll was taken prior to the last week of the media disgracing itself, so it may well be 20% higher today.

This sort of depravity and open hostility by the fake news media towards anyone with an R by their names is in fact one of the main reasons why Donald Trump won the presidency in 2016, and why he will most likely win re-election in 2020 should he choose to run.  The simple fact of the matter is that the media’s mask is off, and these fake, demented journalists alienate more and more ordinary Americans each and every day.  Those alienated Americans are likely to become future Trump voters.

You want to know why a growing majority of Republican voters believe the fake news media establishment is the enemy of the American people?  It’s because 98% of the demented human slugs who populate our fake media establishment act on a daily basis as enemies of the American people.  They are serial liars, they are shameless hypocrites, and they are the worst kind of vile and disgusting human beings.

All you need as proof of that reality is to know that as of this morning Jake Tapper and Joy Reid still have their jobs, James Clapper still has his lucrative CNN contract, and the Tom Brokaw #MeToo story has been buried.  If you need more proof than that, go out to YouTube and watch all the fake journalists yucking it up at the expense of Sarah Huckabee Sanders, and realize that not one of these demented hypocrites decided to walk out or do anything else in real time to correct the disgrace that was taking place at their annual dinner.

Enemies of the truth, enemies of common decency, enemies of democracy, enemies of the people.  Plain and simple.

Just another day in fake news media America.

That is all.
