Today’s Campaign Update, Part II
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)
It’s been obvious from the start, hasn’t it? – It’s always been about the server, folks; it has never been about any “quid pro quo,” which President Trump manifestly did not engage in during his July call with Ukraine President Zelensky. That’s what the Campaign Update told you on September 25, about an hour after the transcript of the call had been made public:
Here is the passage that really has the Democrats in their current panicked frenzy:
“I would like for you to do us a favor though because our country has been through a lot and Ukraine knows a lot about it. I would like you to find out what happened with this whole situation with Ukraine, they say “Crowdstrike”...I guess you have one of your wealthy people…the server, they say Ukraine has it. There are a lot of things that went on, the whole situation. I think you are surrounding yourself with some of the same people. I would like to have the Attorney General call you or your people and I would like you to get to the bottom of it. As you saw yesterday, that whole thing ended with a very bad performance by a man named Robert Mueller, an incompetent performance. But they say a lot of it started with Ukraine.”
This entire charade that the Democrats, their media supporters and disloyal RINOs like Mitt Romney are staging right now is about using the false “quid pro quo” nonsense to distract the public away from focusing on the reality that officials in the Ukraine were heavily involved in the effort to help the DNC and the Clinton Campaign fix the 2016 presidential election. I won’t go through all the details behind that here – go re-read that Sept. 25 piece if you need a review of them.
All of these bad actors are in a panic because they fear that Attorney General William Barr and U.S. Attorney John Durham, acting on intelligence handed to them earlier this year by Rudy Giuliani, are getting close to gathering a critical mass of evidence to prove the Ukraine connection.
This is why you see today’s media/Democrat frenzy coming out of Mick Mulvaney’s presser from yesterday, which can be viewed in its entirety at this link. This is an effort to distort Mulvaney’s reference to the server as an admission the Trump White House was withholding U.S. military aid to Ukraine in order to get foreign help in influencing the 2020 election.
This is abject, smelly horse sh*t.
What Mulvaney in fact said is that the Administration was delaying those funds until it had assurance that the newly-elected Zelensky government is keeping its promise to clean up the rampant corruption in that country. A big part of that is to investigate the former government’s active efforts to influence our 2016 election in support of the Pantsuit Princess and the Democrat Party.
Here is why that is a perfectly proper, even mandatory thing for the Trump Administration to do:
- The U.S. relationship with Ukraine is structured through a series of treaties;
- The U.S. provides military aid to Ukraine under the terms of one such treaty;
- The U.S. also has another, anti-corruption treaty with Ukraine which requires that countries to cooperate in rooting out and punishing corrupt acts by officials from both countries;
- The U.S. also has this major law called the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act that prohibits the kind of clear influence-selling actions committed by Joe Biden and his ne’er-do-well son Hunter.
- Thus, the White House and the Department of Justice have a clear and unambiguous legal obligation to coordinate with Ukraine to root out the source of that country’s corrupt efforts to influence our 2016 elections, and if withholding military funding becomes necessary in order to convince the Ukraine government to cooperate, that’s just fine.
As Mulvaney said during his presser, we do this sort of thing all the time in our relationships with countries all over the world. Yes, Barack Obama just loaded up billions in cash into military cargo jets and shipped it willy-nilly to corrupt governments like Iran’s, but that is not the way any of this is supposed to work under the law, and if Republicans in congress weren’t such gutless wonders they’d have impeached Obama over that action.
Look at it this way: Robert Mueller and his gang of Gestapo thugs wasted $35 million or so in a supposed effort to investigate alleged corruption in the 2016 election. Unfortunately, they only looked at one side of the equation, and stayed carefully away from anything having to do with Ukraine and copies of the DNC server that the Comey FBI failed to even investigate.
Now, the Democrat/Media/RINO Axis of Propaganda wants to convince you that the efforts by Barr/Durham/Giuliani to fully investigate the other side of the equation is somehow improper. They need you to believe that, because if the truth ever comes out, they’re all in deep doo-doo. The Wall Street Journal’s Kim Strassel sums it all up very succinctly in this clip:
Once again, the mainstream media keeps moving the goalposts to attack @realDonaldTrump.

So remember: Regardless of all the distractions the Axis of Propaganda throws at you every day, their panic is really all about the President’s reference to the server on his call with Zelensky. That’s the real origin point that led to the last three years of fake “Russia collusion” hysteria, and that’s what Barr and Durham are supposedly really investigating.
That is all.
