Conservatives Should Watch Tulsi Gabbard and Learn

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

You go, Tulsi. – I’ve consistently called Tulsi Gabbard one of the two actual interesting candidates in the Democrat presidential field, along with Andrew Yang. That’s not because I agree with either of those two about much, but because they are the only two people in the race who actually speak their own minds rather than just parroting talking points written and handed to them by staffers on any given day.

Of course, the relative independence of mind displayed by Gabbard is one of the main reasons why she and Yank literally had zero chance of really becoming any kind of force in the race, since the Democrat nominee will ultimately be decided either by a brianwashed voter base or, in the case of a split convention, the party bosses who brainwashed them.

All that having been said, I greeted the news that Gabbard had sued the pantsuit off the Pantsuit Princess this week with great joy and amusement. Gabbard is seeking $50 million in damages for the Coughing Crook’s allegation that the Hawaii Congresswoman and Major in the Army National Guard is a “Russian agent.” Of course, this is an accusation that the Grasping Grifter has leveled at a wide array of her tormentors since her 2016 campaign went down in flames, one so scurrilous that no one outside of the corrupt news media takes it seriously.

But obviously was highly offended by the Hacking Hag’s accusation, which was made a few months ago, and initially responded by demanding a retraction. Since that was not forthcoming, she decided to file a defamation suit, and it’s hard to blame her for doing so.

Good for her. While she probably has little chance of prevailing, this is a tactic that more people who are attacked by Democrat politicians and their media toadies need to be employing. There needs to be a cost for this kind of scurrilous behavior, and the only way to really cost these people is through their pocketbooks. If nothing else, Gabbard’s litigation will cost the Fainting Felon thousands of dollars in attorney’s fees.

And hey, if the other side thinks you’re getting some traction with the court, they may even offer to settle for millions, as CNN recently did in the defamation suit brought by Nicholas Sandmann and the Covington Catholic school. $25 million is real money for a fake news network that barely registers in the ratings anymore.

This is the kind of thing Republicans need to be doing – finding creative ways to exact a cost from the Democrats and their media hacks for all the outright lies they continue to spread. Every member of the Trump family and Trump cabinet should have defamation suits filed against CNN and MSNBC and their on-air talent like Fredo Cuomo and Rachel Maddow.

After all, the Democrats have zero reservations whatsoever using government money to hire highly-paid lawyers to corrupt our political system; witness the way they have used a vast team of Lawfare-affiliated contract lawyers to concoct and manage their impeachment scam against President Trump. The Democrats have also used the Lawfare people to tie up major Presidential executive orders and regulatory actions in the courts for months on end throughout this administration. It’s a very effective tactic, even though they pretty much always lose in the end, when the anti-constitutional decisions issued by their Obama-appointee federal judges generally get overturned by appellate courts or the Supreme Court. The bad guys lost again this week with the finalization of the Administration’s revised Waters of the United States regulation, but delay is the goal.

On the conservative side, however, things are different. Other than the various defamation suits brought by Sandmann and his lawyers, the most visible efforts to use the courts to police Democrat abuses come from the folks at Judicial Watch. Judicial Watch leader Tom Fitton and his folks do great work, but it’s like a David vs. Goliath battle that’s being fought in that arena.

Conservatives simply must become more active in this area and develop an effective counter-strategy to Lawfare’s activities, if only as a defensive strategy in the event of the election of another Democrat to the presidency. As things stand today, Democrat politicians and their toadies in the corrupt media are free to make any accusation they want, no matter how scurrilous and unfounded it may be, without consequence.

Ironically, Tulsi Gabbard, a Democrat presidential candidate, and Nick Sandmann, a high school student, are trying to show them the way. Is anyone watching and learning?

That is all.

Iran Lobs Missiles As Democrats And Corrupt Media Cheer Them On

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

So, what actually happened last night? – Not much, other than open sedition and disgrace from the Democrat/media/Deep State Axis of disinformation.

When news broke that Iran was lobbing missiles from its soil at a pair of Iraqi military bases where U.S. and coalition forces were stationed, Democrats and media figures immediately started their own cheering section for the Iranian Mullahs on Twitter. MSNBC’s Larry O’Donnell kicked things off with this little gem, openly urging the Mullahs to take revenge on the bad Orange Man in the White House:

San Fran Nan Pelosi, the ostensible Speaker of the House, did her own version of “Down the Field, Big Team, Down the Field” for the Mullahs with this tweet, blaming everything on the Orange Man:

Even Tulsi Gabbard, an active reservist who should know better, made a statement blaming everything that’s ever happened vis a vis Iran on the bad Orange Man. Pathetic.

Pelosi’s statement that she was “closely monitoring” the situation was a lie. In fact, she was partying at the opening of a new D.C. restaurant as the situation in Iraq was unfolding, as an enterprising attendee posted a picture of her yucking it up with her fellow party-goers and posted it on Twitter:

Image may contain: 1 person, indoor

No wonder those articles of impeachment she’s been holding onto for weeks smell like vodka and mothballs.

The nation’s Unfrozen Caveman Senator, Quid Pro Joe Biden, was as discombobulated as always, twice confusing the nation of Iran with Iraq. The fawning corrupt reporters present attributed the latest evidence of Biden’s creeping dementia to a simple “misspeak”, because of course they did.

Meanwhile, over at CNN, it was business as usual:

Image may contain: 1 person

Thankfully, whether due to poor aim of the Iranian military or by intention, no U.S. or Coalition personnel were killed in the missile attacks. As one friend emailed me this morning: “Iran named this attack after General Soleimani…that’s why it was scattered all over the desert, not hurting anyone.”

The lack of U.S. casualties, however, did not prevent the despicable hacks at MSNBC from giving airtime to Iranian propaganda claiming the attacks had killed 30 U.S. military personnel. As reported by the Daily Caller:

MSNBC host Chris Matthews brought in NBC News Tehran bureau chief Ali Arouzi, who repeated the Iranian claims to MSNBC’s national audience.

“We’ve just getting reports now that a second wave of rocket attacks have been launched from Iran. The IRGC was saying that Ayatollah Khamenei, the supreme leader of this country, was in the control center coordinating these attacks. This is, uh, this bit I’m not sure about,” Arouzi said, before sharing the unverified propaganda claims, “but Iran state media is claiming that 30 U.S. soldiers have been killed in this attack. Now, this is not confirmed, this is just coming from Iranian media, but we have just stepped over the precipice, Chris.”

The only “precipice” that had been stepped over was MSNBC’s stepping over the precipice into rank sedition and fake news.

Senator Marco Rubio summed things up like this early Wednesday morning:

President Trump, showing the restraint towards Iran’s constant provocations that he has demonstrated throughout his presidency, actually did closely monitor the situation throughout the evening. Despite wild media reports variously claiming that he had scrambled stealth fighters out of the UAE and ordered nuclear-warhead-armed B-52s to prepare for takeoff, the U.S. held its massive fire and allowed the situation to fully play itself out.

Earlier on Tuesday, during a press availability at the White House, President Trump summed up the decision to take out Soleimani in his own unique way:

The President will make a statement to the nation later this morning, laying out the details from the U.S. point of view, and discussing his next steps moving forward. If he were the hothead know-nothing the seditious U.S. media portrays him to be, hell would already be raining down all over the Middle East.

Be thankful he’s your President, and not the actual hothead who openly celebrated the “successful” Obama Administration plan to throw the entire nation of Libya into 19th century turmoil, a state it remains in to this day.

That is all.

Bloomberg’s In! Sort of. Maybe.

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

Tired of all this #WINNING yet? – The Dow Jones Industrials and S&P 500 set new record high closes on Thursday amid very solid corporate earnings reports and optimism about an interim trade deal with China. The NASDAQ also had a gain for the day and closed at its second-highest level of all-time.

Despite all the howling from liberal “experts” that tariffs would destroy the market, the Dow is up by almost 11%, the S&P 500 by almost 14% and the NASDAQ by right at 16% since President Trump first announced tariffs on China in February 2018. Maybe it’s time to find some new “experts.”

Mayor Big Gulp dips his toe into the race. Will he go all-in? – Former New York City Mayor Mike Bloomberg, the billionaire professional nanny who famously outlawed the selling of sugary soft drinks in cups larger than 20 ounces, made the first move towards getting into the race for the 2020 Democrat nomination Thursday when he filed paperwork to get himself on the ballot in Alabama.

While most corrupt fake news media swooned hysterically at the prospect of another big Democrat hero entering the race, Tal Axelrod at The Hill got the story right in a piece headlined, “Bloomberg signals interest in entering presidential race.” Bloomberg is filing the paperwork in Alabama because it is the state with the earliest filing deadline. What he did yesterday was just a baby step towards getting ready to formally enter the race.

The ex-Mayor has not formed up a campaign committee, hired campaign staff or done any of the myriad other things anyone must do in order to mount a presidential campaign. He can do those things very quickly when he makes his final decision, since he, like Donald Trump, is a billionaire who can self-fund his own effort, but until he does those things, he’s just dipping his toe in the water.

Here’s a big catch with Mayor Bloomberg, though: At age 77, he is actually nine months older than the geriatric Joe Biden, who really does appear to be in a state of rapid mental decline. Bloomberg appears to be in much better physical and mental condition than Biden, but this is an extremely advanced age for a person seeking the presidency. Ronald Reagan, our oldest serving President in history, was 77 when he left office after 8 years on the job. Bloomberg would be 78 on his inauguration day.

Bloomberg will presumably base his campaign on an “I’m the one who isn’t batsh*t crazy” strategy, but as Joe Biden has discovered, that strategy has limited utility in a field crowded with various levels of Alinskyite/Marxist grifters. As of today, Biden, a massive front-runner just 6 months ago, finds himself running in 4th place in Iowa, a weak 2nd in New Hampshire, and clinging to an increasingly-tenuous lead in the national polls.

If you consider Preacher Pete Buttigieg to also not be batsh*t crazy, then as of today, in the RealClearPolitics average of national polls, the “I’m the one who isn’t batsh*t crazy” segment of the Democrat voter base amounts to just 35%. Add in Amy Klobuchar and you get to 37%. Tacking on Andrew Yang and Tulsi Gabbard gets you to 41%.

Now, Bloomberg presumably wants to just jump in and divvy up that minority pie even further, because it is a mistake to believe that Biden and/or Buttigieg are just going to throw up their hands and shout “no mas!” like Roberto Duran (you Millennials will have to Google that reference) just because some guy who hasn’t held elected office in six years is jumping in with a lot of media fanfare. Should Bloomberg actually fully enter the race, the most likely impact would be to end Biden’s status as the national front-runner and basically make it even less likely that any candidate in the field would be able to accumulate enough delegates during the primaries to win the nomination on the first ballot at next year’s convention.

You are going to see a lot of wild predictions from your fake news media today and over the weekend about Bloomberg somehow becoming an immediate front-runner in the race. But once all of that settles and Democrat voters start to see just how un-exciting this guy truly is, his most likely impact will be to simply muddle the picture further than it already is.

Meanwhile, the Fainting Felon sits out there in her wardrobe of pantsuits and hospital gowns, waiting to waltz in as the Party’s savior at a hung convention next summer.

You just could never make this stuff up, folks.

P.S.: If you really believe that Bloomberg actually isn’t batsh*t crazy, invest a couple of minutes in reviewing this clip from a September interview:

And just for your further edification, here are photos of Mr. Bloomberg paling around with Jeffrey Epstein’s partner, Ghislaine Maxwell:

Oh. The more you know…

That is all.

The Democrat Nomination Race is All Jumbled-up Again

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

One of the biggest ways the ongoing fake impeachment circus benefits the Democrat Party is to take public attention away from the parade of clowns who are seeking the party’s 2020 presidential nomination. Sure, it hasn’t helped Joe Biden, with the revelation of the influence peddling he conducted with his ne’er-do-well son Hunter, but nothing can really help Biden, who most days doesn’t even know what state he’s in. And you get the occasional 4-hour pop-up news cycle when one of the clowns – most recently, Irish Bob O’Rourke – calls an unceremonious end to his or her failed campaigns.

But otherwise, the rest of these grifters, scam artists and just plain nitwits have been able to fly mostly under the public radar since their last disastrous debate in mid-October thanks to all the media obsession over Nancy Pelosi’s and Adam Schiff’s impeachment scam. But, since today is exactly one year out from Election Day 2020, and I’m frankly tired of talking about that particular scam, today is a very good day for Today’s Campaign Update to provide an update on the actual campaign, right? Right.

Lieawatha’s War Path Stalls – The first thing to note about the progression of the campaign over the past several weeks is that the momentum in the race seen by Little Mouth Always Running throughout August and September has now stalled. It was easy for demented Democrat voters and fake journalists to view Fauxcahontas as a younger, fresher version of The Commie while she was safely polling in third place, but once she passed Sanders and started polling first in a poll here and there, everyone had to take a step back in start thinking about what the Party’s prospects would be in 2020 with Princess Gonna Take All Your Money at the top of the ticket.

It turns out that there are actually some Democrats who are capable of semi-rational thought, and that $52 trillion price tag on her “Medicare for All” plan has many in the Party suddenly experiencing reservations about making this particular life-long fraud the Party’s standard-bearer next year. Lieawatha’s little tom-tom boomlet in the polls stagnated in late-September, and she has actually faded slightly throughout October.

The Squad goes full Commie – Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and her “squad” of female freshmen congressional Saul Alinsky disciples chose to endorse the oldest, most pasty-white male in the race, despite their constant bashing of old, white men as the cause for all of society’s ills. That old, pasty-white guy happens to be The Commie who, at age 78, is just a year older than fellow old, pasty-white guy Joe Biden.

The Squad’s endorsement of The Commie came barely a week after the Senator from the People’s Republic of Vermont suffered a heart event, at least according to published media reports. Since literally nothing that our national news media reports can be trusted anymore, who knows if he really had any health issue or not? It’s a crapshoot.

In any event, the endorsement by the Party’s most radical group of leftist nitwits got the Democrats’ Perpetual Outrage Mob really motivated, and The Commie’s poll numbers, which had slowly declined throughout the long, hot summer, have stabilized since.

Preacher Pete is a “rising star” one more time – Preacher Pete Buttigieg, the mayor of some little town in Indiana, was the Party’s favorite media-boosted “rising star” throughout the spring. But like Sanders, he had seen his polling fortunes wane throughout the summer after his media toadies figured out that he has literally zero appeal to Black voters, who make up a huge portion of the Party’s support base.

But Preacher Pete has made a significant comeback in the polls since the October debate, during which he said a few things that the media liars can refer to as “moderate” without spewing coffee all over their keyboards. The 37 year-old radical leftist scold is now being promoted as the “sensible moderate alternative to Joe Biden,” who everyone knows will not be the Democrat nominee next year.

As a result of this new media promotion angle, Preacher Pete is once a gain running solidly in fourth place in the national polls, and a very strong second in Iowa behind Lieawatha now. How long that can last is anyone’s guess, but the best bet is it will last until his current media admirers find some other cute candidate on whom to focus their love interests.

Kamala’s campaign is on life support – The single most illegitimate candidate in the race, who literally slept her way to the U.S. Senate, has just about run out of gas. She has spent the last week firing all of her staff in New Hampshire and other states, and blaming her pathetic performance on sexism, racism and any other -ism she can think of. Call it the Hillary Clinton Strategy.

The truth is that Kamala Harris is a terribly unappealing person, and a horrible campaigner to boot. She has now mysteriously chosen to focus basically all of her remaining campaign assets on Iowa, where she is polling a very consistent 3%, running a very distant 6th place behind even Amy Klobuchar.

Basically, this race has now become a war of attrition, one in which we are seeing candidate after candidate drop out after finally going broke. Next up in that procession will likely be dead-man-walking candidates like Julian Castro of Texas, Colorado Senator Michael Bennet, and Montana Governor Steve Bullock.

Sen. Klobuchar still has some money, so she’ll just keep plugging along in Iowa and few other states in hopes of catching lightning in a bottle at some point. Tulsi Gabbard and Andrew Yang, the field’s two “outliers,” i.e., actual interesting candidates, also have done a solid job of raising and conserving funds and appear to be in it at least until Super Tuesday comes around next March. And the singularly irritating billionaire Tom Steyer has unlimited funds of his own, and obviously enjoys hanging around and irritating people, so he’ll keep campaigning and polling at or near zero for the foreseeable future.

Bottom line: A month ago, this race appeared to be shaping up as Fauxcahontas’s race to lose. But here we sit with a year to go before the general election, and it’s gotten all jumbled up again. With Biden slowly collapsing and the Pantsuit Princess now making increasing noises about getting into the race, the chances of this thing ending up with an open convention process next Summer are once again on the rise.

So much fuss over a process that is just going to end up picking someone to go out and lose to President Donald Trump. But hey, these are Democrats we’re talking about here.

Here are my updated odds for the ultimate outcome of this circus clown parade:

Someone not currently in the race: Even

Elizabeth Warren: 5 to 2

Preacher Pete: 7 to 2

The Commie: 4 to 1

Joe Biden: 10 to 1

Amy Klobuchar: 15 to 1

Kamala Harris: 20 to 1

Tulsi Gabbard: 50 to 1

Andrew Yang: 50 to 1

The rest of the current field: 100 to 1

That is all.

Tulsi Gabbard, the DC Swamp’s New Heretic

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

Burn the heretic! Burn the heretic! – So, what is really going on with this effort – detailed here yesterday – by the Democrat/media/RINO Axis of Propaganda to brand Hawaii Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard as a “Russian agent”? No doubt, many readers can already guess, right?

This is the Axis of Propaganda, which has saddled our nation with a three-year neverending coup effort, already building the foundation for its excuse for losing the 2020 election, in which they know they have little chance of preventing President Donald Trump from winning re-election to a second term. That foundation for excusing the loss – by blaming it all on the Russians one more time – will then serve as the kicking off point and justification for another four years of neverending coup efforts.

Yes, it’s all incredibly tiresome and futile, but this is all these people have left at this point. If you wonder why they keep doing this kind of thing, you have to understand that to the denizens of the DC Swamp, this is a literal fight for survival. President Trump isn’t just upsetting the apple cart, every action he takes is a direct assault on their corrupt way of life.

In Syria, Trump is destroying their foundation for never-ending Middle East wars, from which many trillion of dollars of graft and no-bid contracts have flowed to all the influence peddlers and hangers-on.

By implementing policies that have helped the oil and gas industry make our country more energy secure, Trump has helped destroy any compelling reason why our country must remain entangled in all of the Middle East’s 2,000 year-old conflicts between various religions and sects.

By investigating the actions of Quid Pro Joe and his ne’er-do-well son Hunter, Trump is exposing the kind of influence game that thousands of DC Swamp denizens spend their lives aspiring to become a part of.

By working to end the last 30 years of trade deals that have allowed China and other nations across the globe to drain America’s wealth, Trump is upsetting the 30-year effort to end America’s status as the world’s lone true superpower.

By investigating the origins of the FBI/CIA/State Department spying efforts against the Trump Campaign, Trump threatens to expose the Obama-era corruption that not only turned most federal departments into mob-like enterprises, but leads all the way up to the Obama White House.

By mentioning Crowd Strike and the DNC server on his call with Ukraine President Zelensky, Trump signaled that he knows full well where and how the neverending coup germinated.

And by doing everything he can to secure the southern border with Mexico, Trump exposes the globalist attempt to turn our nation into a classic socialist two-tiered society, one with a ruling class consisting of a few million and an easily-manipulated and controlled permanent underclass consisting of several hundred million.

If you understand these motivations by the Axis of Propaganda, you realize that the assault on Gabbard, a Major in the Hawaii National Guard who has served two full tours in the Middle East, is simply a shot across the bow signaling that the Swamp hasn’t surrendered, and its leaders are gearing up for another four years of the same old bullsh*t.

Gabbard has made herself a target due to her refusal to support the Axis of Propaganda’s narrative that President Trump is somehow an illegitimate president. She regularly admits that Trump did win the 2016 election fair and square in her stump speeches, and likely set off this week’s round of attacks on her character when she said it again during the Tuesday night debate. This is the main reason why I frequently refer to her as the only truly interesting person in the Democrat field – she’s the only actual independent voice on that debate stage.

In the world of the neverending Middle East warmongers like the Pantsuit Princess, anyone who favors the Trump policy of getting the U.S. out off all of these Islam-driven conflicts automatically becomes someone to be demonized as a tool of Vladimir Putin. The Axis of Propaganda has been running a social media effort to demonize Gabbard throughout 2019, and her statement that Trump really won in 2016 during the debate appears to have been the catalyst for the Coughing Crook to make things more public on Wednesday evening.

On domestic policy, Gabbard is just another Democrat socialist dedicated to wasting trillions of dollars every year on programs that have no chance of actually working. But on foreign and military policy, she is a DC Swamp heretic, someone whose reputation and career must be destroyed before she gains enough political influence and power to become an existential threat to the utterly corrupt way of life all the Swamp skunks and snakes have built for themselves.

Gabbard was on Tucker Carlson’s show Thursday night giving her side of this story. It’s a pretty strong interview and worth taking the 5 minutes to watch:

There is literally zero chance that Gabbard could ever become the nominee of the Democrat Party in 2020 – the Swamp rats who control the party now would rather destroy the party before they let that happen. But she is, at least on some matters, that rarest of rare animals in Washington today: A Democrat who is actually willing to tell the truth about the DC Swamp and the real nature of Hillary Clinton:

Image may contain: 1 person, text

For that alone, she deserves our respect.

Hillary Clinton Goes After Tulsi Gabbard and Takes an Epic Beating

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

ummmm…maybe the Fainting Felon should turn her slanders on a more passive target. – This is the best thing you will see today, trust me.

The Democrat/media smear machine is really afraid of Tulsi Gabbard, the representative from Hawaii who remains the only actual interesting person in the party’s presidential nominating race. As Gabbard herself pointed out in Wednesday night’s debate, the smear machine has been up and running at her for the past week:

“Not only that, but, the New York Times and CNN have also smeared veterans like myself for calling for an end to this regime change war. Just two days ago, the New York Times put out an article saying that I’m a Russian asset and an Assad apologist and all these different smears. This morning, a CNN commentator said on national television that I’m an asset of Russia. Completely despicable.”

The big concern at the smear machine is that, because Gabbard does not toe the party line on each and every issue – especially those related to international relations and military policy – she might decide to mount a third party candidacy after the Party ensures its nomination goes to one of the Marxists in the race, most likely to be Fauxcahontas.

Media smears from the two fakest news organizations on the planet not being enough to scare Tulsi off, party leaders obviously fed a script to the Coughing Crook to use during an appearance on Thursday night. There, the Grasping Grifter had this to say about Rep. Gabbard:

“I’m not making any predictions, but I think they’ve got their eye on somebody who is currently in the Democratic primary and are grooming her to be the third-party candidate,” Clinton said, speaking on a podcast with former Obama adviser David Plouffe. “She’s the favorite of the Russians.”

“They have a bunch of sites and bots and other ways of supporting her so far,” Clinton said.

Boy, did the Hacking Hag pick on the wrong target.

Obviously PO’d by Clinton’s idiotic and libelous remarks, Gabbard hit back Friday afternoon on Twitter, and boy, is it epic:

BAM! POW! OOF!

But wait, there’s more!

BOOM! KABLOOEY! YIKES!

But wait, there’s still more!!!

HOLY CRAP! SHOTS FIRED! OLD, COUGHING, HACKING, FAINTING, CORRUPT HAG DOWN!

Whew. That’s just brutal. And oh, so damn true.

Thank you, Rep. Gabbard, for being a Democrat willing to speak the truth about the single most corrupt political figure this nation has ever known.

Please, don’t stop now.

That is all.

Dem Debate: Clipping Coupons, Stealing Your Money, and Confiscating Guns

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

I didn’t watch last night’s Democrat debate, because I’m sane and would prefer to stay that way. Besides, there was baseball on TV. But I did follow the festivities in real time on social media, and quickly realized I didn’t miss anything that wasn’t entirely predictable.

For example, there was this lovely moment, when the two near-octogenarians in the race, perhaps surprised to see each other still alive and kicking, gave each other a big hug:

Image may contain: 1 person, suit

Awwww, isn’t that cute? It’s like that big family reunion back in 1963 when both of your great-grandpas showed up together for the last time.

Speaking of Quid Pro Joe, he got the very predicable special handling from CNN hack Anderson Cooper, who prefaced a question about his bullying of the Ukraine in order to protect is ne’er-do-well son with “You have been falsely accused by the White House…”, and bumbling ‘Ol Joe was barely able to take it from there. If Cooper could’ve taken him by the hand and walked him through an answer, you can be sure he would have done so.

At other times, though, the Unfrozen Caveman Senator didn’t fare quite so well. Check out this clip, when he’s asked by some chick about the Marxist “wealth tax” scheme being touted by The Commie and Fauxcahontas:

That’s right: He literally said “clipping coupons in the stock market.” He apparently thinks Nabisco often runs “2 for 1 specials” on purchases of its stock, and General Motors offers 5 year, 0 percent financing from time to time.

In case you couldn’t understand the rest of his gibberish answer, here’s everything he said, verbatim:

“No, look, er, ah,um, demonizing wealth people, what I’ve talked about is how you get things done. And the way to get things done is take a look at the tax code right now.  The idea, we have to start rewarding work not just wealth. I would eliminate the capital gains tax [rapid blinking and scrunch face occurs here] that i..I w, I would raise the capital gains tax to the highest l.., rate of 39.5 percent, would double it. Because guess what? Why in God’s name should someone who’s clipping coupons in the stock market make, in fact, pay lower tax rate than someone who in fact is, uh, like I said, is, th, uh,  a school teacher and a fireman.”

Got that? So, all you stock market coupon clippers better put those scissors away and go out and get a job teaching or putting out fires. Because that’s the world Quid Pro Joe lives in these days.

In another highlight, Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard, who remains the only actual interesting person on the Democrat stage, ripped into the two main drivers of today’s fake news media, CNN and the New York Times. Hilariously, those two fake news outlets also happened to be the hosts of last night’s debate. Here’s the clip:

For those who still like to read things, here is the key passage:

“Not only that, but, the New York Times and CNN have also smeared veterans like myself for calling for an end to this regime change war. Just two days ago, the New York Times put out an article saying that I’m a Russian asset and an Assad apologist and all these different smears. This morning, a CNN commentator said on national television that I’m an asset of Russia. Completely despicable.”

Boom. Don’t hear language like that about our fake news media coming from any of the other Democrats on that stage, mainly because the New York Times and CNN treat them all with kid gloves.

But maybe the best part came when Irish Bob O’Rourke appeared to question the political courage of Navy veteran Pete Buttigieg, and that did not go well for the Texas dilettante:

Oof.

In an interview released earlier on Tuesday, O’Rourke also signaled that his pending failure to win the Democrat nomination would likely end his amazingly mediocre political career, saying “I cannot fathom a scenario where I would run for public office again if I’m not the nominee.”

All of his former fantasy lovers at various Texas and national fake media outlets would be heartbroken, but those words fall on most Texans like manna from heaven.

Note to Beto: You aren’t winning anything in this race, given that your campaign has been the most laughable, miserable, epic failure this year has seen. So, please, keep your word, for once.

Image result for i don't believe you gif

To sum up the rest: Julian Castro told a bunch of lies about immigration, Fauxcahontas refused again to admit she is going to raise taxes on the middle class, Kamala Harris bumbled and stumbled all over herself, Andrew Yang barely got any airtime, Cory Booker continued sucking up to Creepy Uncle Joe, Tom Steyer was on the stage but nobody knew why, or even who in the hell he was, and everyone went after Fauxcahontas at one time or another because she’s the real frontrunner in the race.

But in the most important news of the evening, the Nationals beat the Cardinals to sweep to their first-ever National League pennant.

That is all.

P.S.: As I was typing this piece up this morning, President Donald Trump summed last night’s festivities up perfectly:

Bernie is Toast, Biden is Close

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

Bernie Sanders’ presidential hopes are over, although he may not realize it yet. – The Commie had to undergo surgery to implant multiple stents into his 78 year-old heart, and has cancelled a bunch of planned campaign events over the next couple of weeks so he can recover. Although this can be a fairly minor procedure for a younger person – I had one placed into my left ventricular artery at age 55 and was back to full speed within a few weeks – it can be far more difficult for a person of Sanders’ advanced age.

But the speed of his recovery doesn’t even matter here: Sanders was already finding it impossible to move his polling numbers much above 15% due in part to the impression among many Democrats that he is just too old for the job he seeks. Suffering a heart attack in the midst of the campaign – and yes, if he was having chest pains, any doctor will tell you that he did indeed suffer a heart attack – will only serve to build that perception among many more voters, who will now begin to cast their eyes in the direction of the other, younger unquestioned Marxist in the race, Fauxcahontas.

The near-certain outcome will be that we will see Sanders’ polling numbers drop into single digits over the next few weeks, and a commensurate rise in support for Little Mouth Always Running.

Speaking of the Fake Indian running, check out the greeting she received from Nevada voters when her plane landed out there on Wednesday:

Not exactly the reception that Princess I’m Gonna Take Your Wampum expected. But that’s the price we can expect more and more Democrats to pay for their support for San Fran Nan’s sham impeachment circus as Trump supporters become increasingly engaged in public activism and protest.

Meanwhile, the campaign of Quid Pro Joe Biden, the nation’s Unfrozen Caveman Senator, is now hanging by a thread. While Biden’s foundering campaign did not quite meet my prediction that his lead would have disappeared by October 1, he sure came close.

In fact, Lieawatha actually now holds the lead in 4 of the 7 most recent polls taken in the race, according to Real Clear Politics, and she and Biden are in a statistical tie in a fifth poll taken by Emerson. In fact, only one of those polls was even partially conducted in October, and that one – by The Economist/YouGov – shows the Fake Indian holding a 6 point lead. The two clear outlier polls, both showing Biden with 11 point leads, were taken entirely in September.

Given that reality, I think I’ll declare half a victory on this particular prediction, made back in April when Crazy Uncle Joe kicked off his campaign with a near-30 point lead. There is now little doubt that his lead will disappear entirely when the first polls conducted entirely in October are published over the next two weeks.

For the  rest of the field, just a few trends to note:

  • Kamala Harris is on life support. She announced early this week that she is shaking up her staff, but that won’t help. The candidate is the problem with her campaign. She is just a horrible candidate, and shuffling the deck chairs on the Titanic won’t change that.
  • Preacher Pete is your basic 6% candidate now, and his trendline has been essentially static since June. His consistent ZERO support from African American voters means he has no real chance in the race for the nomination, and that won’t change. The only reason for him to hang around is in the hopes of becoming arm candy for Fauxcahontas in the general election.
  • Andrew Yang had a $10 million fundraising haul in the third quarter, which places him in the top 4 in this pitiful field. He had one exciting moment when he came in at 8% in the Emerson poll last week, but that’s a clear statistical anomaly given that he is at 2 or 3 in every other poll. Another potential vice presidential nominee, but no chance to win the big prize.
  • Cory Booker, Julian Castro, Irish Bob O’Rourke and Amy Klobuchar are all dead as door nails, but they will linger through the next debate in mid-October in the vain hopes of having some breakthrough moment on that crowded stage.
  • The only other declared candidate worth mentioning is Tulsi Gabbard, who had a chance to be the only actual interesting person on stage when she initially came out in opposition to Pelosi’s Impeachment Circus. But she lost that not even 48 hours later when she reversed her posture. Thus, she’ll be just another hack with no chance of truly distinguishing herself in that next debate.

Then there’s the Pantsuit Princess, the thus-far-undeclared candidate in this race. The Fainting Felon has raised eyebrows by putting herself back in the public spotlight with a series of speaking events this week, raising the spectre that she might decide to become a late entrant into the campaign season as Biden falters.

From a pure self-defense standpoint, that appeared to make some sense late last week, as the corrupt news media assisted Biden by claiming the President’s rhetoric about Biden’s clear pay-for-play selling of his vice presidential office related to Ukraine, China and other countries amounted to a Trump attack on a political rival rather than an effort to identify clear corruption. But that particular line of BS has very quickly lost its utility as this week has progressed and the damning video of Biden bragging about engaging in his clear bullying of the Ukraine government on behalf of his ne’er-do-well son gained traction with the public.

Would the Grasping Grifter attempt a similar tactic, declaring herself to be a candidate to try to give herself political cover against the increasingly aggressive investigation led by Attorney General William Barr? She might, but she would fail even more miserably than Biden is failing with that line of BS.

Only time will tell. I still think her plan is to wait it out and hope to become the party’s savior at a hung convention.

Given all of that, here are my updated odds on who the eventual Democrat nominee will be:

Fauxcahontas – 3 to 1

Someone not currently declared – 3 to 2

Quid Pro Joe – 20 to 1

The Commie – 50 to 1

Preacher Pete – 100 to 1

Kamala – 100 to 1

Andrew Yang – 100 to 1

The rest of the declared field – DEAD

That is all.

The Biden Lead is Crashing Like the 1929 Stock Market

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

The Biden lead is crashing like the 1929 stock market. – Today’s Campaign Update has been predicting since April – when he formally entered the race – that Joe Biden’s polling lead would be gone by October and that he would leave the race for the presidency shortly after March 4, 2020, which is Super Tuesday.

As things turn out, the nation’s Unfrozen Caveman Senator is right on pace to achieve the first piece of that two-pronged prediction. The three most current new polls out this week all now show him in a statistical tie with Fauxcahontas, the life-long fraud who is now the candidate with all the momentum in the race. The polls all come from legitimate polling groups – Economist/YouGov, Emerson and Quinnipiac – which are independent from major U.S. fake media outlets. That’s an important distinction, since those major fake news outlets produce their “polls” as a means to create fake news instead of any real effort to measure the state of the race.

Biden’s once-strong leads in Iowa and New Hampshire, the first two contests in the race, have already disappeared into the ether, although he does still cling to leads in the most current polls in South Carolina and Nevada, the two contests that come after New Hampshire. Faced with this reality, the Biden campaign has now taken to saying that it is not important for their confused candidate to win Iowa or New Hampshire, which smart observers will note is exactly what the campaign of Rudy Giuliani kept saying back in 2008. How did that work out for the Mayor?

The big outlier in the national polls is The Hill/HarrisX poll. HarrisX is a legitimate polling group, and its poll, taken on September 20/21, came out before the controversy about Biden’s interference in the Ukraine on behalf of his ne’er-do-well son Hunter, broke into the news cycle. That one still had Biden’s support up over 30%, and Fauxcahontas way down at 14%, trailing even The Commie.

That is a real outlier compared to these three more-recent polls, and it will be interesting to see where it comes out in its next iteration. That may not happen until after October 1, since it has been on a two-week cycle.

Lots of other interesting stuff in these three most-recent polls, including:

Bernie Sanders is basically dead in the water at this point. He is stuck in the mid-teens, mainly because he has no new ideas that aren’t recycled from his 2016 effort. He just keeps on repeating the same tired Marxist talking points over and over again, and that just bores the short-attention-span Democrat voter base back to playing games on their IPads. Fauxcahontas has become the more interesting and energetic Marxist of the day.

Irish Bob O’Rourke has now fallen behind Andrew Yang. His strategy of attracting support by being the loudest, shrillest and most profane finger-pointer in the crowd has failed just as everything else he has ever tried in his life. He gone, he just don’t know it yet.

The same can and should be said of Cory Booker. He polls at dead zero in two of those three polls. His campaign recently let it be known that it is almost out of money and that he would probably have to leave the race soon if fundraising doesn’t pick up. There is no reason whatsoever why fundraising for the goofy Senator should pick up.

–  Like The Commie, Kamala Harris is also dead in the water. Her support numbers, which had been stuck in the 6-8% range throughout July and August, are now stuck in the 3-4% range. Like Booker, it is hard to see any reason why they  might suddenly pick up. As bad as she has been as a senator, she is even worse – absolutely horrible – as a candidate. For you college football fans, Harris is the Jim Harbaugh of the political world – blessed with more hype than Barack Obama, but unable to meet expectations on the field of play.

Then there’s Mayor Pete, or Preacher Pete as The Campaign Update prefers to call him. The little Deacon has one of the most loyal bases of support of any candidate in this race. The trouble is, that base of support has settled in right at 6%, and no one should expect him to move substantially above or below that level. He is the 6% candidate, waiting to become VEEP arm candy for Fauxcahontas in next year’s general election.

The only other thing worth noting here is that Tulsi Gabbard has now qualified under the DNC’s very mysterious rules for the October debate. Thus, there will be one actually interesting person on stage with 11 circus clowns for that one. Given Democrat voter preference for circus clowns, that will likely be Tulsi’s last stand.

All that having been said, the odds are now getting a little better for one of these candidates, most likely Fauxcahontas, to accumulate the necessary majority of delegates during the primary races to win on a first ballot at next year’s nominating convention. Biden’s rapid fall, combined with the inability of candidates like Harris, Booker, Preacher Pete or Irish Bob to gain any real traction, make it more likely that only 2 or 3 of those who survive into 2020 will be able to get to the 15% threshhold in each state to be awarded delegates.

This is now Fauxcahontas’s race to lose, which should come as no surprise to readers of The Campaign Update. We have consistently told you that Democrat voters love a good liar, and will pretty much always nominate the single biggest life-long fraud in the field. That has been the case in every nominating battle since 1992, and there was never any reason to think this one would turn out any differently.

Given that, here are my new odds for the ultimate winner of this race:

Fauxcahontas – Even money

Someone not in the current field – 2 to 1

Biden – 5 to 1

The Commie – 20 to 1

Preacher Pete – 50 to 1

Kamala – 50 to 1

The Field – 100  to 1

That is all.
