The “Resistance” Movement’s History of Failure

Guest Piece by Gregg Updike

The current and ongoing “resistance” movement was spawned when the Democrats didn’t get their “inevitable” candidate elected to continue Obama’s third term.

Many (ignorant of political and historical perspective) people who I know to this day still think Obama inherited a mess from Bush Jr. and did a “good” job getting us out of the terrible horrible Bush years. Most are securely employed government workers and were otherwise unaffected by Obama’s stagnant economy. For the most part, this pervasive mindset was driven by the MSM (D) where everything every Republican did was akin to Hitler and every Democrat was a saint who only wanted to do the best for everyone.

So the anti GOP mindset is firmly hardwired into the minds of 40 plus percent of the population. The 20 or so percent of the elected feckless RINOs contribute mightily to this mindset. Many of these RINOS know a Democrat can’t get elected to represent their district, city or state, so they became “Republican” to win their election; that is why they are called RINOs.

Bloomberg is a great example. A lifelong liberal Democrat, he became a “Republican” to avoid a crowded Democratic primary, and rode Giuliani’s coattails to win in NYC.

Thus the Grahams, Alexanders, Rubios and McLames of the world get elected running as “conservatives”. Once elected, they quickly establish political machines to wipe out any future primary contenders and essentially become senator etc. for life. I have no doubt many also receive money and other covert support from the big government employee unions. A little known secret is many big organizations including most if not all big businesses support BOTH parties’ candidate; therefore no matter who wins they get their place at the table. That is how the political ‘system’ gets so corrupted.

In reality, for years, most Republicans don’t win elections; they get elected when the Democrat is so bad that the people (voters) revolt and vote for the alternative Republican or whatever “Independent” is on the ballot. Examples of Democrats who were so bad they were beaten in their reelect bid: President Carter, NJ Governor Florio, NY Mayor Dinkins, B. J. Clinton losing both houses of congress together for the first time in forty years, and Al Gore and Hillary Clinton not winning on the coattails of “popular” Democratic Presidents.

Both Clinton and Obama should have been one term presidents like Carter was, but they (unlike Carter) were propped up by the leftist media and beat very mediocre challengers (Dole and Romney). Reagan was a great candidate compared to Dole and Romney and he won because you can’t beat someone with no one, and Biden is as close to being a ‘no one’ as any candidate for any office in history.

The dumbing down of America’s youth in the public school system, and then the indoctrination of the high school “graduates” in our institutions of ‘higher learning’ all but ensures a Democratic leaning electorate. B. J. Clinton’s snake oil campaign and Obama’s “Hope and Change” messaging carried the day against media demonized, and miserable opponents.

Many GOP nominees are also known as “Designated Losers”. Bush Sr. was seen as being so bad a president – a Republican Jimmy Carter – that a major Independent (Perot) was able to get nearly 20% of the popular vote in 1992. This was very similar to the 1912 election between Taft and Wilson where Teddy Roosevelt (the original progressive) ran as an anti-Taft third party candidate and split the conservative vote. America got our first ‘worst’ president.

This is why we need runoff elections. There is no reason a candidate (Clinton) should win the presidency with only 43% of the popular vote.

About this ongoing anti-Trump “resistance”, there is no doubt in my mind that a similar coup and subsequent “resistance” effort would have been mounted against a Cruz or a Kasich or a Bush III presidency – and it would have worked in getting a resignation like was force upon Nixon when he lost support of the feckless GOP senate in 1974.

Trump, with his message, was the only 2016 GOP candidate who could have won against the Clinton machine. I also believe Sanders and his “message” could have beaten Trump since he didn’t have the Clinton baggage and essentially was the left’s version of ‘outsider’ Trump. Many of his supporters were angered because he was shafted by Clinton and the DNC. When Clinton was anointed, many Sanders supporters just stayed home.

Biden’s apparent win against Sanders is just history repeating itself. The real problem for the DNC and the left is Biden is so much worse a candidate than Hillary.

“The Resistance” is a term carefully chosen by the anti-Trump leftist movement. In world War II, covert fifth column sabotage was called “The Resistance” in Nazi occupied Europe to cripple Hitler’s war effort – “set Europe Ablaze” was Churchill’s slogan; Antifa and other groups are engaged in doing the same today. It was also supported bigtime by outside forces – the Allies in WWII, Antifa is also highly supported and organized by the numerous anti-Trump forces.

These riots and the “resistance” movement were looking for a ‘triggering event’ to set America ablaze as the Covid-19 “plandemic” crisis was running out of steam and we were beginning to return to “normal”. It was and is all too organized, all too coherent to be an organic protest on a nationwide scale. Look for other false flags to be created in the remaining five months before the election as the left driven “resistance” is getting more and more desperate to beat the “Bad Orange Man”.

So far, they have failed miserably with the three phase coup attempt, Mueller, Ukraine Impeachment, Covid-19, and now the violence. My only fear is the cumulative effect of all this intense turmoil created by the Democrats and the crisis-centric media could create a certain amount of ‘Trump Fatigue’. The relative peace of Obama’s administration may seem attractive to some who want to get back to “normal”.

Rod Rosenstein Has Much to Answer For, if Only the Senators Will Demand he do so

The Afternoon Campaign Update

Rod Rosenstein will testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee tomorrow in Lindsey Graham’s first Obamagate-related hearing since he assumed the chairmanship in January 2019. Supposedly, the committee will then reconvene on Thursday to vote to subpoena a long list of the major players in the whole Russia Collusion hoax that morphed into a soft coup d’etat under the guise of the Mueller Investigation.

Who was the guy responsible for creating the Gestapo/KGB-style Mueller Investigation? Why, Mr. Rosenstein, of course, which, combined with the fact that he also personally signed one of the fraudulently-compiled applications for FISA warrants presumably explains why Graham chose him as the witness to kick off the committee’s festivities. But those are far from the only items of interest we know about Rosenstein’s role in the four-year Obamagate hoax.

Here are some others:

  • We know Rosenstein had a long series of contacts with Robert Mueller in the two weeks leading up to Mueller’s appointment as Special Counsel – what were those about?
  • We know that Rosenstein actually recommended that President Trump appoint Mueller to be his FBI Director after he had fired James Comey.
  • We know Rosenstein actually set up an interview for Mueller for that position with the President himself, and on the very next day appointed Mueller to be the Special Counsel. He should be forced by GOP committee members to explain that timing of events, and why he thought that Mueller of all people would be the right person to lead the Trump FBI.
  • We have very solid indications that Rosenstein, in a meeting with Andrew McCabe and other FBI/DOJ coup cabal participants, offered to wear a wire to record his conversations with the President of the United States.
  • We know that Rosenstein wrote two additional authorization memos extending Mueller’s scope in the months following his appointment, but have not seen the full text of those memos.
  • We know that, because Jeff Sessions was recused, Rosenstein personally had oversight over the entire Mueller enterprise and the rampant abuses and Gestapo-style tactics it used to deprive U.S. citizens of their rights and freedoms. In a span of two solid years, Rosenstein never exercised his authority to rein in the out-of-control special counsel operation.
  • We know that Rosenstein coordinated with then-Washington office U.S. Attorney Jessie Liu to cover up the crimes committed by James Wolfe, the counsel for the Senate Intel Committee who traded national secrets for sex with a New York Times reporter less than half his age.
  • We know that Rosenstein coordinated multiple times with the corrupt U.S. attorneys framing General Mike Flynn to withhold exculpatory documents from Flynn’s defense team.
  • We know that Rosenstein stood before the assembled national press and announced Mueller’s sham indictments of Concorde Management, a Russian firm, knowing full well those indictments had zero substance behind them and were purely for show.

This is all stuff I can think of just off the top of my head – there is no doubt much, much more fertile ground to be plowed in tomorrow’s hearing with Rosenstein if Graham and his fellow GOP committee members are willing to do so.

Certainly, if this hearing were being held before the completely corrupted, RINO-filled Senate Intel Committee, we could only rely on Arkansas Senator Tom Cotton to ask anything resembling tough questions of Rosenstein. But here’s the thing about the Judiciary Committee: There are half a dozen Republican members who can be counted on to really take it to this witness.

Those senators include:

  • Texas Senator Ted Cruz;
  • Missouri Senator Josh Hawley;
  • Crusty old Iowa Senator Chuck Grassley;
  • Tennessee Senator Marsha Blackburn;
  • Louisiana Senator John Kennedy; and
  • Senator Graham himself, who, despite his interminable delaying tactics, can be counted on to put on a good show in front of the TV cameras.

The rest of the Republicans – Senators Mike Lee (UT), John Cornyn (TX), Joni Ernst (IA), Mike Crapo (ID), Ben Sasse (NE), and Thom Tillis (NC) will likely be useless. And of course, the Democrat members can be counted on to obfuscate and resort to their usual subject-shifting histrionics. Because they aren’t serious people, and that’s what they do.

Rosenstein is a clever and skilled lawyer, so no one should expect any slip-ups or big new revelations to escape his thin lips. But he will be testifying under oath, and the six senators listed above will make sure that this hearing will not be easy for him.

He has much to answer for.

That is all.

These Democrat Riots Will End America’s Downtown Renaissance

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

The inevitable outcomes of this past week of rioting in the major, Democrat-controlled cities are very predictable. The abject refusal by Democrat mayors and governors to make any effort whatsoever to protect the citizens and small businesses from the excesses of Antifa- and BLM-led burning and pillaging will have consequences for those cities for decades to come.

The first two decades of the 21st century have seen a revival of the central cities in America, as the Baby Boomer flight to the suburbs has given way to a move back to downtown and mid-town areas by Gen-X, Gen-Y and Millennials wanting to avoid being trapped into a life of long commutes they watched their parents endure. Life in high-rise and mid-rise condominiums within walking distance of office and shopping centers has become the new norm for these younger generations of Americans, and hundreds of thousands of small businesses have sprung up on the ground floors of those condo buildings to serve them.

When I first lived in Houston in 1980, no one lived in the downtown area, and the thriving area called “mid-town” was a slum. You didn’t want to linger downtown past dark because it was too dangerous to be caught there. Most other large cities in America were in similar shape after all of the “white flight” to the suburbs that had taken place since the 1960s.

That all began to change in the mid-1990s, after mayors like Rudy Giuliani had taken charge of the security situations in those downtown areas and city governments and business leaders invested billions in urban renewal projects designed to make those areas attractive places to live. College graduates of all races, colors and creeds, having grown up watching their parents spend 2 to 3 hours a day in stop and go traffic saw the advantages of living a few blocks from work and seized the opportunities to do so.

From Seattle to Portland to San Diego to Phoenix to Denver to Dallas to Houston to Miami to Boston, and many points in between, downtown/mid-town neighborhoods that were basically hellholes 40 years ago were turned into great cultural melting pots of our society. It was a stunning success story of 21st century America. But then came Barack Obama and Eric Holder and Loretta Lynch and the policies of hands-off policing, policies that order the police to stand down and watch helplessly during riots as the bad actors vent their rage at the expense of residents and small businesses.

The last week is simply the inevitable result of those “progressive” policies.

Thousands of young-ish New Yorkers who moved to Soho because it was a cool place to be woke up Monday morning horrified by the reality that Bill de Blasio had allowed the neighborhood they had believed to be safe and secure to be looted and burned during the night. Thousands more New Yorkers are waking up to similar realities in other Manhattan and Brooklyn neighborhoods this morning. Residents and business owners in downtown and mid-town areas of Minneapolis and Chicago and Philadelphia have seen their lives and livelihoods destroyed by city leaders who couldn’t be bothered to do anything to stop all the mayhem. The vast majority of these people are loyal Democrats who thought the leaders they have repeatedly elected would protect them.

Silly them.

The worst thing about it is that that mayhem – the looting, the burning, the shattering of doors and windows – was largely committed by their neighbors, egged on by BLM and Antifa organizers from out of state.

If you are a young mother or father who has just seen half of the buildings surrounding your home vandalized, burned and looted by people who live just blocks away, how will you ever feel secure in that home again? If you are a small business owner who has just had your storefront windows shattered and your store looted while your city’s Democrat leaders sat safe in their mansions and did nothing, what will be your incentive for reopening? You may do it for awhile, try to get back on your feet while putting bars on your doors and windows, but how long can you last as you watch half of your customers flee back to the suburbs where they were raised by their commuting parents?

The Democrat mayors and inner-city councilmen won’t care, because the captive population left behind will only lean more strongly in their favor. Their lives of grifting in positions of political power will have been secured.

For the people left behind, life will become grim. Sadly, most of them will have no understanding of the fact that the re-created downtown/mid-town hellholes to come are the result of their own actions and voting habits.

Life’s a cycle, and when you just keep mindlessly voting for Democrats, you get what you ask for, whether you realize it or not.

That is all.

The Same Shade of Grey: Why Socialists are Threatened by Individuality

Guest Piece by Karen Kataline

FREEDOM OF THOUGHT AND FINDING ONE’S OWN PATH BRINGS RICHNESS, COLOR, AND GREATER PURPOSE TO LIFE.

Things seemed almost normal on our brief trip to South Dakota recently. My husband and I were practically giddy to escape the gloom and doom of points further south from which we came.

We never felt guilty for dining indoors at a restaurant on our anniversary. We enjoyed strolls through one-of-a-kind stores in Deadwood and Hill City that sell everything from Black Hills Gold to rhubarb wine.

In the freedom-sucking world of Socialism, joy is frowned upon and independence is considered to be selfish. The pressure to think collectively and act mindlessly doesn’t just apply to people, it applies to their businesses and everything else they create.

As we watch the next wave of attacks on America in the form of riots which again threaten innocent people of every race and creed, their safety, their businesses and their freedom, it’s not difficult to recognize the same collectivist stereotypes that are continually reinforced by the propaganda media.

The message is that we are all members of a collective, and our guilt or innocence is based on the ethnicity into which we were born or the group to which we belong. That’s a direct attack on the heart and soul of America and the principles on which it was founded.

Using the excuse of a virus which, even by reportedly inflated statistics from the CDC, is non-lethal for 99.6% of the population, they have imposed preposterous rules and paternalistic restrictions that are direct assaults on our most fundamental liberties. One moment, they claim this is all for our health and safety and “for our own good.” The next, they become apologists for rioters and vandals who are quite lethal to our health and safety. Apparently, they believe that is for our own good as well.

Through the pivoting narratives and the breathtaking contradictions, the only thing that is ever-present is the grey cloud of groupthink.

Our justice system is also under attack, as a fundamental principle on which it is based is the treasured idea that every person is unique, yet we all deserve due process and equal justice under the law. Jurors take an oath to examine the facts and evidence in the specific case with which they are presented. They are constantly admonished to set aside their own preconceived notions and biases.

Our current, media echo-chamber promotes precisely the opposite of this. Rioters are applauded not only for ignoring due process for the accused, but for indicting and convicting the innocent for sharing the same skin color as the accused. Democrat Governors and unelected bureaucrats hand down one-size-fits-all orders that ignore the unique characteristics of every state, county, municipality or unincorporated area.

Regardless of how contradictory or quickly the facts change, the message is always the same and it is getting ever louder. We must fall in line and believe what they tell us to believe. They march in lockstep and we are expected to do so as well.

Government control is essential for their beloved socialist dream, and they must propagate collectivism and denigrate individualism in order to achieve it.

For example, it is immaterial whether mass mask-wearing in public makes any sense whatsoever. In fact, it may be better for them if it doesn’t, as it allows them to easily distinguish between those who obey and those who do not. The next step is to isolate and bully those individualists until they can’t dine, travel or get a haircut without submitting to the state. They are on lockdown all over again.

Freedom of thought and finding one’s own path brings richness, color, and greater purpose to life. Otherwise, we are all the same dull shade of grey.

Such individualism used to be highly prized by liberals in the sixties, but that has been demolished along with our historical monuments and the valuable lessons learned from America’s past.

The labor, faith, and personal expressions of free thinking adults are among the greatest threats to socialists and the tyranny they inexplicably feel entitled to impose upon us.

No wonder small businesses and little souvenir shops in Deadwood, South Dakota are such a threat.

The Official Narrative on the Floyd Killing is Falling Apart

New video of the prelude to the killing of George Floyd by fired Minneapolis police officers emerged on Saturday, and it adds to the growing realization that the official narrative we’ve been fed about that murder simply no longer adds up.

The video shows the police officers involved in the killing working Floyd over in the backseat of their police vehicle, apparently softening him up before they dragged him out onto the street pavement where they finished the job in front of  a crowd that they had to know would capture the incident on their cell phones. Take a look at the second clip below:

In that clip, you can see one cop on the near side of the car scuffling with Floyd as Derek Chauvin – who was arrested and charged with 3rd degree murder on Friday – begins to pull him out on the far side of the vehicle.

So, how does this conflict with the official narrative? Well, to this point we have been told Floyd did not resist and that there was no reason for Chauvin to restrain him by pressing his knee on the back of his neck for more than 8 minutes, until Floyd died.

This video shows one of two possibilities here: Either Floyd was indeed resisting arrest, or he was being brutalized by the cops. One or the other has to be the case here. The first possibility would give the cops some mitigating arguments to the murder charge, though it certainly would not excuse them entirely. That is, unless the reason why Floyd was putting up a fight was because he realized he was about to be killed.

The second possibility raises the potential that this was indeed an act of premeditated murder.

We have no way of knowing which scenario is the correct one. But the long records of complaints and lawsuits brought against at least two of these cops, and the fact that Chauvin and Floyd had actually worked security at a local night club together for several years sure does add to the suspicion that this was not just some random act.

Think about it: The Minneapolis/St. Paul metro area has a population of roughly 3.6 million people. The thought that this high-profile killing involving two men who worked together and likely knew each other is mere coincidence strains credulity to the breaking point.

Up until now, the assumption has been that this killing was just the random spark that lit the flame to the series of national riots that the Democrats/Soros/BLM/Antifa crew were planning to launch this summer anyway. But with all of the odd facts now surrounding this killing, combined with the obviously-orchestrated nature of the riots, you have to wonder if Floyd’s murder was a random event at all.

I have made it a personal practice to stay away from talk about “false flags” that fly around social media in reaction to high-profile events such as this one. But boy, the official narrative around this particular high-profile event is beginning to fall completely apart.

No doubt, many will react by saying there is no way even the Democrats would resort to something so destructive to our national fabric. But ask yourself this: in 2016, would you have believed it if someone told you that the Democrats and the national news media were about to mount a four-year effort push the Russia hoax? Or that they would expand that hoax into an active coup d’etat effort on American soil? Or that, when all of that failed to work, they would hold the nation captive for five months with a completely made-up impeachment hoax? Or that Democrat governors and mayors would intentionally keep people out of work and kill thousands of businesses in their states and cities for no good reason simply to try to impact the November elections?

Sadly, with today’s Democrats and their corrupt media toadies, literally anything is possible.

Stay tuned.

Saturday News Roundup: Trump Fires WHO, Russia Hoax Dead, Roberts Goes Rogue Again

Today’s Campaign Update, Part II

Trump to WHO: You’re Fired! – President Donald Trump, outraged at the role the WHO played in helping China’s communist government conceal the real nature of the Wuhan Virus for several months, took final action with that corrupt globalist organization on Friday, completely removing the United States from its membership:

“China has total control over the World Health Organization despite only paying $40 million per year compared to what the United States has been paying, which is approximately $450 million a year,” Trump said during a news conference in the White House Rose Garden.

“The world needs answers from China on the virus. We must have transparency. Why is it that China shut off infected people from Wuhan to all other parts of China?” he added. “It didn’t go to Beijing, it went nowhere else, but they allowed them to freely travel throughout the world, including Europe and the United States.”

Naturally, RINO limp-wrists like Lamar Alexander were upset and disturbed by the move, because of course they were.

But then, WHO cares what they think? (See what I did there?)

The Russia Hoax breathes its last, dying gasp. – Thanks to the efforts of Ric Grenell and new Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe, the Russia Hoax is now in hospice care, breathing its last, desperate breaths.

As promised, DNI Ratcliffe released the full transcripts and FBI summaries of the various calls General Mike Flynn conducted with Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak during the 2016 transition period. His action came after Grenell had fully declassified the documents early this week. The calls show exactly what we should have expected: An incoming National Security Advisor holding calls with his Russian counterpart and having preliminary discussions on areas of mutual interest between our two countries.

The December 29, 2016 call that the Obama Coup Cabal and its corrupt media support group have claimed to be so concerning turns out to be a big nothing burger. During that call, when Kislyak raises the likelihood of Russia responding to Obama’s earlier expulsion of dozens of Russian “diplomats”, i.e., spies, Flynn advises him exactly as John F. Kennedy advised Nikita Kruschev during the Cuban Missile Crisis: to avoid ‘going nuclear’, and to respond in a “reciprocal” manner.

Naturally, the corrupt news media that has spent the last 4 solid years pushing the Russia hoax is today trying to convince you all that Flynn’s reply here is some sort of treasonous act. That is, of course, utterly absurd.

There is nothing wrong with that call, and we now know with 100% certainty that the Obama Administration – including Obama himself – went after Flynn for the simple fact that Flynn knows where all the bodies are buried with relation to Obama’s efforts to prop up Iran. Those corrupt bastards sold their souls and our national security to the Islamic state, and they could not countenance having Flynn as Trump’s National Security Advisor.

The most poignant part of reading the transcripts is that we see Flynn and Kislyak discussing the very real areas of mutual interest the U.S. and Russia had at the time related to destroying ISIS, stabilizing Syria and dealing with the Iranian threat. By mounting the Russia hoax, the Obama Coup Cabal and its media support team threw all of that potential good away, making it impossible for the Trump Administration to truly engage with Russia on those matters, and making our nation less secure in the name of protecting Obama, John Kerry and everyone else involved in the Iran deal.

This must not go unpunished. The Russia Hoax is dead, and it is now time for William Barr and John Durham to start extracting some justice.

Meet John Roberts, the new Anthony Kennedy. – Just when Americans all over the country are getting ready to go back to church, Chief Justice John Roberts decides to side with the communists.

In a 5-4 decision late Friday evening, Roberts sided with the four “liberal” – as the corrupt media likes to call them – justices in upholding the draconian, science-devoid restrictions on religious freedom being imposed by California Governor Gavin Newsom. Here’s the key passage from the decision:

Although California’s guidelines place restrictions on
places of worship, those restrictions appear consistent with
the Free Exercise Clause of the First Amendment. Similar
or more severe restrictions apply to comparable secular
gatherings, including lectures, concerts, movie showings,
spectator sports, and theatrical performances, where large
groups of people gather in close proximity for extended periods of time. And the Order exempts or treats more leniently only dissimilar activities, such as operating grocery
stores, banks, and laundromats, in which people neither
congregate in large groups nor remain in close proximity for
extended periods.

[End]

Thus does the majority of the U.S. Supreme Court uphold dramatic restrictions on the absolute freedom of religion guaranteed in the First Amendment by equating your church, synagogue, temple or mosque to the local Kiwanis Club.

If you are not outraged by this, I really don’t know what to say to you.

Biden Center Under Investigation for Illegal Donations From China

Today’s Campaign Update, Part II

If the label says “Biden,” it was definitely influenced by China. – John Solomon at JustTheNews.com is reporting that The National Legal and Policy Center has asked the U.S. Department of Education to investigate its findings that the University of Pennsylvania (Penn) has over the past several years accepted more than $22 million in anonymous China-originated donations to its Biden Center and failed to properly disclose the contributions.

From Solomon’s report:

The complaint, filed by the National Legal and Policy Center, says that over the past three years, the university has accepted around $22 million in anonymous funding from Chinese sources. That’s out of a total of more than $70 million from Chinese donors during that time, the NLPC said.

Those significant funds, including the anonymous amounts, rolled in after the Biden Center was announced in early 2017 and launched in February 2018. The center is located in downtown Washington, D.C.

Federal records show that the University of Pennsylvania has received significant donations from China since the opening of the center. One 2018 donation alone totals $14.5 million; it is listed as “anonymous” in federal records.

The NLPC alleges the university may have violated federal law in accepting those anonymous monetary donations. The Higher Education Act mandates schools report the national origins of any donations above $250,000 although not necessarily the individual names of donors themselves.

[End]

This serves as just one more reminder that Biden, his son and his brother have long been in the pockets of Chinese interests. The stark reality facing our country today is that, should Biden manage to win the election in November, all of the gains President Donald Trump has made through the sheer force of his will in terms of U.S./China relations and trade policy will be immediately reversed the day after Biden assumes office.

If you like the fact that virtually all U.S. antibiotics and PPE are sourced through China at some point along their supply chains and want it to stay that way, vote for Biden. Because that would be a fait accompli should he win. There are trillions of dollars at stake, and Creepy Uncle Quid Pro China Joe wants to ensure his family continues to get its fair share.

The stench of panic pandering is strong in this one. – How would you like to be Symone Sanders, the African American hack who serves as racist Joe Biden’s press spokesperson?

Sanders has spent the last few days desperately trying to clean up the pile of doggie-do the nation’s Unfrozen Caveman Presumptive Nominee left on the floor on Saturday, when he told a clearly-Black radio host “you ain’t black” if he has a hard time decided whether to vote for Biden or President Trump this November.

Appearing on MSNBC’s “Politics DC” show hosted by venerable old race-baiter Al Sharpton on Sunday, Ms. Sanders blurted out this bit of obvious panic pandering, as reported at Breitbart News:

“Vice President Biden has committed to making sure that we are underscoring not just the civil rights division and the Department of Justice, the civil rights division across his administration,” Sanders told MSNBC “PoliticsNation” host Al Sharpton. “He is committed to putting judges on the bench that reflect the community, taking a hard look, and making sure that they are African-American judges on the bench, qualified judges on the bench. He has committed to putting a black woman on the Supreme Court.”

So now, in addition to having the standard Democrat Party litmus test of having to be pro-abortion on demand and even after birth, Sanders says Biden will add the litmus tests of being a woman and African American to his list of pre-qualifications when considering his first nominee to the Supreme Court. This kind of rank discrimination is so despicable and anti-American that it is hard to put into words. It takes panic pandering to an entirely new level.

But this is Joe Biden, and this is what you can expect if you vote for him in November.

Think carefully before going into that voting booth, folks.

Lindsey Graham to the Rescue? Don’t Count on it.

The Mid-Day Campaign Update

Ok. Now do Stacey Abrams. – In an interview on CNN last night, doddering, often drunk House Speaker Nancy Pelosi – whose eyebrows rise further up her massive forehead with each passing congressional recess – referred to President Donald Trump as being “morbidly obese.” First Lady Melania Trump thinks of the President more as being “pleasingly plump.”

You can’t win at this game, Madam Speaker. Neither can Ms. Abrams.

Is Senator Lindsey Graham actually about to hold an Obamagate hearing? – Don’t bet the farm on it yet, but yesterday the Chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee did at least schedule a hearing to debate whether or not to issue subpoenas to potential witnesses.

Of course, Graham set the agenda for his May 21 hearing in such a way to ensure that at least two more weeks would go by before the committee votes on the question. At that June 4 hearing, assuming the Republicans on the committee hold together (not a safe assumption in the RINO-filled Senate) to approve the question, you can be sure that many more weeks would then pass before Graham actually schedules additional hearing to begin questioning the witnesses.

From the Committee notice, here is the list of possible witnesses Graham will propose to subpoena to testify:

Trisha Anderson, Brian Auten, James Baker, William Barr, Dana Boente, Jennifer Boone, John Brennan, James Clapper, Kevin Clinesmith, James Comey, Patrick Conlon, Michael Dempsey, Stuart Evans, Tashina Gauhar, Carl Ghattas, Curtis Heide, Kathleen Kavalec, David Laufman, Stephen Laycock, Jacob Lew, Loretta Lynch, Andrew McCabe, Mary McCord, Denis McDonough, Arthur McGlynn, Jonathan Moffa, Sally Moyer, Mike Neufield, Sean Newell, Victoria Nuland, Bruce Ohr, Nellie Ohr, Stephanie L.

Graham is at least pretend-focused on the FBI’s code-named “Crossfire Hurricane” investigation that began in July 2016, and which led to the illegal spying operations on the Trump Campaign, Trump Transition Team and even into the Trump Administration. That spying was conducted under the aegis of four successive FISA warrants which the FBI fraudulently obtained based on the Steel Dossier.

If you think I’m being overly harsh on Sen. Graham, keep in mind that the South Carolina Senator has held the Judiciary Chairman’s seat since January 2019. Since well before that time, there has been plenty of information in the public domain to justify issuing these subpoenas and convening hearings on the matter. Yet, Graham has spent the last 17 months promising to hold such hearings on various Fox News programs, and then contriving excuses why he just couldn’t do so at that time.

It has been obvious for months now that his real plan was to get all the way through the end of this year – after which the Chair will go back to Iowa Senator Chuck Grassley – without having done a damn thing. But something or someone has obviously finally prodded Graham into at least taking this tentative first step.

When you look at how this process will likely play out, even if the Committee votes to move forward, it is highly unlikely to issue any findings until well into 2021, at the earliest. Think about it:

– The conducting of hearings with this many witnesses would consume weeks of time, and Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is not going to allow this committee to shift all of its focus away from its core responsibility of confirming Trump-nominated judges and administration officials;

– Under normal circumstances, the Senate would only be in session for about a third of the 190 or so days remaining between now and the end of the year. Ongoing issues related to the Wuhan Virus will dictate that it is in session for substantially fewer days than that.

– That means, under optimal conditions, the committee might – might – be able to finish taking testimony by Election Day, November 3.

– After that, you’re going to consume probably another 3 months just dealing with Democrat delaying tactics, not to mention lawsuits filed by the Democrats’ Lawfare army.

– Then, it’s going to take another 3 to 6 months to get a final report written.

Add that all up, and even if the minimum time frames mentioned above are consumed, you are all the way into May/June of next year.

Oh, and in case you’re thinking that, hey, at least Graham will be able to chastise these corrupt people in public hearings in the meantime, think again. It’s a very safe bet that Graham and his fellow RINOs will quickly agree to Democrat demands to hold the hearings during which testimony is taken behind closed doors.

Thus, Senator Graham will have accomplished his obvious goal of doing nothing to advance the cause of justice through his committee for his entire two year term as its chairman.

This is the DC Swamp at its worst.

That is all.

Watch: Neil Cavuto Gets the Vapors on News Trump is Taking Hydroxychloroquine

The Evening Campaign Update

I laughed out loud while watching President Donald Trump inform the news media in a very offhand manner today that he has been taking hydroxychloroquine – in conjunction with azithromycin and zinc – for “a week and a half” during a press availability at the White House today. You could literally feel the reporters in the room gasp in unison and almost go out of their minds at the notion that the President of the United States is using this safe, effective, cheap and plentiful drug as a prophylaxis against the Wuhan virus. He just tossed it out there like he was ordering dinner – it was a truly glorious moment.

Here’s a clip:

No corrupt journalist on any network went crazier, though, than drama queen Neil Cavuto, who happened to be on the air when the President was toying with the White House press corps like my cat Max toys with lizards every day. After warning his viewers in a shaky voice reminiscent of Christine Blasey Ford’s mimicking of a teenage valley girl during her smear of Brett Kavanaugh that the drug “will kill you” if you have certain underlying conditions, Cavuto then went on to interview several people. One of them – Fox medical contributor Dr. Janette Nesheiwat, correctly informed him and his viewers that the drug can be “lifesaving” for certain patients who do not have those underlying conditions.

Watch Cavuto’s face fall and then try to cut her off as she delivers the news he most certainly did not want to hear:

This is crap that belongs on CNN, but it airs on Fox News every day at 3:00 CT. Maddening.

That is all.
