Donald Trump Just Keeps on Winning for America

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Ok, well, he IS the Boss. – Bruce Springsteen says he doesn’t “see anyone out there at the moment… the man who can beat Trump, or the woman who can beat Trump.” For some reason, the UK Daily Mail thought it was important for us all to know that, so there you go.

Tired of all this Winning yet? – President Donald Trump and Chinese President Xi Jinping agreed during the G-20 Summit over the weekend to a 90-day pause in the ongoing trade war between the two nations. While leftists in and out of our fake news media are poo-pooing the deal as just a return to the status quo prior to President Trump’s implementation of new tariffs, that is not the case at all.

The U.S. side of the deal apparently consists of agreeing to not increase U.S. tariffs on hundreds of billions of Chinese goods for the 90-day period, as Trump had threatened to do on January 1. In return, China agrees to rescind its tariffs on imports of U.S. automobiles, roll back its 40% tariff rates on most U.S. goods to lower levels, agreed to purchase an as-yet unspecified amount of U.S. goods to reduce the trade deficit, and – perhaps most importantly – to “stiffen penalties on sales of the powerful opioid fentanyl into the U.S., a step the White House press secretary described as ‘a wonderful humanitarian gesture.'”

Leftists might not like it, but the markets obviously do: Dow futures are up bigly as I write this Update this morning.  #WINNING.

Speaking of winning… – City officials in Tijuana, Mexico acted to move the estimated 6,000 “migrants” out of the sports facility they had occupied for the last few weeks due to the horrid unsanitary conditions they had created there. In a move that will make it harder for the activists among the crowd to mount further assaults on the border crossings there, city officials moved the “migrants” to an abandoned concert venue more than 10 miles further away from the border.

Griff Jenkins at Fox News – and basically no one else in our fake news media – reported last Friday that fully 1/3rd of the “migrants” were being treated for health issues, including head lice, “tuberculosis, four cases of HIV/AIDS and four separate cases of chickenpox,” according to local health authorities. With the unsanitary conditions growing worse by the day, Mexican officials also feared an outbreak of Hepatitis could take place unless the crowd was moved.

In another related turn of events, newly-inaugurated Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador (AMLO), in one of his first acts in office, “signed an agreement with his counterparts from three Central American countries to establish a development plan to stem the flow of migrants seeking asylum in the U.S.” This compact was entered into at the urging of the Trump Administration.

Here’s why this is important, even if the human misery among these poor people is hard to watch: The move 10 miles further from the border will no doubt encourage more of them to either return home or accept the generous offer of asylum the Mexican government has been offering them for more than a month now. This “caravan” once numbered more than 10,000, so many already have done so, as Mexican officials confirmed early last week.

The other key factor is that, as it becomes clear that the United States of America is not going to allow these “caravans” to just walk right into our country and sign up for welfare benefits, it will become increasingly difficult for the leftist activists forming and funding them to find people in Honduras and other Central American nations willing to participate. The new willingness of the Mexican government to cooperate with U.S. efforts to halt this tide is a crucial development in all of this.

You will never see anyone at CNN, the New York Times, the Washington Post or any of the three dying broadcast networks admit this, but these latest developments demonstrate how extraordinarily effective the Trump Administration’s response to this “migrant caravan” issue has been.

It is such a joy to have a President who just goes to work every day and finds ways to get things done for the American people rather than cowering in fear at the prospect of getting a little bad press. To get to this point on this “caravan” issue, President Trump has had to overcome decades of horrible immigration policy decisions, the cacophony of inaccurate and outright fake reporting coming from the U.S. and international news media, ongoing resistance from some within his own Administration and a seemingly unending series of laughably unconstitutional decisions issued by an array of Obama-appointed federal judges.

Yet still he not only perseveres, but finds ways to prevail. That is #WINNING. Bigly.

 

Paris Burning Watch:

By the way, just so everyone understands, the reason why French Child President Emanuel Macron is raising that nation’s already confiscatory gasoline tax to even higher levels is not, as some have reported, an attempt to improve the government’s budget situation. What it really is is a fool’s effort to meet his country’s emissions reduction goals which France – like every nation on earth other than the United States of America – pledged to meet as a part of the Paris Climate Accords.

France’s emissions have actually increased since Macron committed his country to that socialist wealth redistribution scam, which is an embarrassment to him and his government. But hey, he’s not alone – not one single, solitary signatory country to the Paris Accords has met its pledged goals. Indeed, the country that has cut its emissions more than any nation on earth since that deal was signed is…wait for it…The United States of America.

Some of you probably tire of seeing me make this point, but it’s a key point to make:  This is just one more reason to be thrilled that Donald J. Trump won the 2016 presidential contest.  Because had the Pantsuit Princess prevailed that historic day, the streets of New York and Los Angeles would probably be burning along with those in Paris.

That is all.

A Week of Democrat/Media Hysteria Leaves Trump Unscathed

The Evening Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

As we come to the end of this week, a week during which the Democrat/Media Axis of Propaganda pulled out the biggest guns it has and fired them until their chambers were smoking, fake journalists and Democrat politicians must all be looking at one another and saying, “what in the hell did any of that do for us?”

It was a week literally filled with events that D.C. establishment wise men and women solemnly pronounced to be “the beginning of the end for Donald Trump.”  The first such event was the stunningly politicized funeral service last Saturday for John McCain, during which the likes of Joe Biden, George W. Bush and even McCain’s daughter Meghan took potshots at the President of the United States in what were supposed to be eulogies for the deceased Senator.  That was all just six days ago, and yet the 27 separate and distinct news cycles that have taken place since then make it all seem like a faded and distant memory.

The “beginning of the end for Donald Trump” the very next day, Sunday, September 2, was going to be the newest false narrative to explain why the deep state cabal within the Obama DOJ and FBI did all the illegal spying on the Trump campaign throughout 2016.  Invented out of whole cloth by the fakenewsers at the New York Times, this latest in a long line of fairy tale efforts to justify all the law-breaking hilariously blamed the entire thing on a failed effort by the Cabal to “turn” Russian Oligarch Oleg Deripaska.  Deripaska, of course, is the Russian source for most of the absurd fantasies that form the vast majority of the fake “Trump Dossier.”  Literally no one outside of the offices at the Times took this latest work of high fiction seriously, and it has been pretty much entirely forgotten as I type this a mere 5 days later.

That brings us to Monday, which was also Labor Day, when the “beginning of the end for Donald Trump” was the newest book from noted political fabulist Bob Woodward.  No way can Trump survive this one, said everyone at CNN/NBC/CBS/ABC/MSNBC/TheWashingtonPost/NewYorkTimes in unison!  But here we sit, just 3 days after the news of the book’s pending release broke, along with what were supposed to be damaging outtakes from it, and literally no one is talking about it.

Of course, the book’s biggest problem is what the biggest problem always is with any Woodward book:  Its “sources” are all anonymous, despite all of the author’s braggadocio about having a “first-hand source” for every allegation in the tome.  Given that Woodward has been caught making all manner of things up out of whole cloth in his previous works of political fiction, no one has any real obligation – or really and reason – to believe him now.

On Tuesday, the next edition of “the beginning of the end of Donald Trump” was the Senate Judiciary hearings over his nominee to the Supreme Court, Brett Kavanaugh.  Democrats and their media agents began the hearings Tuesday morning with anti-Trump guns a-blazing, carefully-scripted joint talking points and a hearing room filled with paid protesters.  Unsurprisingly, the disgraceful spectacle put on by the gang of Democrat/media thugs had the effect of turning off a huge number of Americans, and by mid-day on Wednesday, even some of the Democrat committee members had grown visibly nervous about it all.

Another dud.

On Wednesday, the fakenewsers at the New York Times were firing their fake news guns one more time, this time with a unprecedented anonymous op/ed from an alleged “senior Administration official” that detailed the existence of an embedded gang of anti-Trump functionaries who are working to undermine President Trump and his priorities.  In other words, the op/ed details the very existence of the Deep State in the pages of the freaking New York Times.  What a bunch of boobs these people are.  Thus, this particular “beginning of the end for Donald Trump” ended almost before it even began.

Yesterday, as detailed in this morning’s Campaign Update, goofy New Jersey Senator Cory “Jazz Hands” Booker decided he was gonna be the one to bring the “beginning of the end for Donald Trump” by staging a hysterical in-committee fight over the release of a set of Kavanaugh memos from 17 years ago that were supposed to prove the Judge is a racist.  But then we all read the memos and it turned out that they simply proved the opposite – that Judge Kavanaugh argued against the implementation of racial profiling in the wake of the 2001 9/11 attacks.  To make matters worse for Senator Jazz Hands, it also turned out that the memos had been approved for the release hours before his staged rant, a fact that he was actually well aware of.

Pop.

So here we sit at the end of this eventful week, and President Trump is not only still standing, he is thriving.  The President’s polling numbers actually rose as the week went along, and the biggest news on Friday was the August jobs numbers, which exceeded the expectations of all the “experts” yet again.

Oh, and Barack Obama made a big speech bashing Trump around noon on Friday, an event signaling his return to actively campaigning for Democrat congressional candidates.  This should make those candidates cower in terror given that their party went from a clear, unchallenged majority national party with super-majorities in both houses of congress when Obama came into office in 2009, to a clear, fading regional minority party holding not a single lever of political power when Obama cleared out of the White House on January 20, 2017.

What this week of Democrat/Media hysteria proved more than anything else is that they still have not figured out why Donald Trump won in 2016, and they still have no clue how to deal with him.

This is Donald Trump, #WINNING for America.

That is all.

Trump Dominates the G7, and the Globalist Community Can’t Stand it

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Godspeed, Charles Krauthammer – I read Dr. Charles Krauthammer’s letter on Friday with feelings fondness and sadness.  I’ve been a big fan of his writing – and later of his commentary on the Fox All-Star panel discussions – for at least 30 years now, so the news that he has only a few more weeks to live in this life is something I find to be profoundly sad, although I’ve had a feeling for months now that this news was coming.

Dr. Krauthammer won a Pulitzer Prize in 1985 for his commentaries, back when Pulitzer Prizes were awarded for actual, outstanding contributions to journalism and not for the sort of fake news hackery for which several CNN employees were awarded a few weeks ago.  Krauthammer won that Prize for good reason:  He was the best in the business, and remained so for many years afterwards.

I did not always agree with Krauthammer – he was a notorious #NeverTrump adherent throughout 2015 and 2016, after all – but I always looked forward to his viewpoint, because he was unerringly able to make his case through supportable logic and wit.  Other #NeverTrumpers whose names I won’t name could learn much from the Doctor in this regard.

Bret Baier and his occasional fill-in hosts have had a difficult time finding adequate replacements for Krauthammer, and the All-Star panel will never be the same without him.  Unlike many of the others who try unsuccessfully to fill the void, the Doctor was always able to disagree without resorting to hyperbole or disagreeable tactics.

Logic, facts and wit were all he ever needed.  He was one of a kind, and will be extremely missed.

He’s good enough, he’s sexy enough, and doggonit, the ladies like him. – Disgraced ex-Senator Al Franken received some defending he probably didn’t want, given the source, on Friday when disgraced ex-President and lifelong woman abuser Bill Clinton decided to weigh in on his case.  Somehow I’m thinking Franken would have preferred for ol’ Slick to just leave bad enough alone.  Just a guess.

Sacre’ bleu – he really means that ‘America first’ nonsense? – Oh, golly, our G7 “allies” are all verklempt at President Donald Trump over the import tariffs he has gone about implementing recently.  The President was singularly unperturbed about all the bitter scorn he was getting from the Angela Merkels and boy leaders of France and Canada, repeatedly expressing his certainty that those countries and others will ultimately come around and negotiate more equitable tariff deals rather than simply endure the reciprocal tariffs the U.S. has recently implemented

Most of these other countries – France, Germany, Great Britain, Italy and Japan – have enjoyed essentially being on the U.S. dole since the end of World War II.  The U.S. started what has become a 70+ year massive transfer of wealth to those nations with the implementation of the Marshall Plan in 1948, and has expanded on that initial $13 billion outlay ever since.

President after president and congress after congress have agreed to enact one-sided tariff policies that overwhelmingly advantage these other nations’ economies, adding Canada and Mexico to this wealth-and-jobs-draining mix in the mid-1990s with the NAFTA deal and adding China in more recently for good measure.  Our country has, for what were initially valid reasons, also relieved the Europeans and Canada from the burden of having to truly pay for their own military defense, spending hundreds of billions of dollars every year by having our own military personnel bases, missiles and other tools of war stationed on Eastern Europe and Japan even today, long after the Soviet Union disappeared and the economies of Germany and Japan recovered to world power stature.

To make matters even more absurd, Barack Obama and John Kerry chose to elevate this massive transfer of U.S. wealth to these other countries by committing our country to the heinous Paris Climate Accords, which were every bit the massive fraud on the American public that the Iran deal was.  These Accords had literally nothing to do with “climate” and everything to do with transferring trillions more U.S. dollars to the other signatory nations over the course of 15 years.

Want proof?  As of today, the United States is the only nation earth that is not a signatory to this fraudulent agreement, and is also the only nation on earth that has actually met and exceeded its emissions reductions “goals” under the deal.  Of course all those other countries are upset – they were all looking forward to getting their slice of that gigantic pie.

So it’s no surprise that Merkel and Macron and the Boy Prince of Canada are bitter:  They see a money spigot that has flowed from the United States of America for decades beginning to slow and have no idea how they’re going to tell their citizens that their economies are going to have to bear the cost of fielding real militaries and pay their own ways.  They’re like a couple of parents who have sponged off their rich uncle for decades suddenly having to face telling their 30 year-old kids they’re going to have to move out of the house because they’ve been cut off by Uncle Sam.

But here’s the big secret the fake news media in this country won’t tell you:  President Trump isn’t looking to cut all these spoiled children states off completely – he never promised that.  He’s simply looking for concessions from them that are substantial enough to give him the ability to keep his campaign promise of negotiating a “better deal for America.”

Canada is a great example:  The Canadian government has for many years shipped Chinese goods into the U.S. tariff-free under NAFTA due to a specific exemption in that treaty.  All the Boy Prince has to do is concede on that inherently unfair provision and the rest of NAFTA will remain largely intact.  The other countries in the G7 have their own inherently unfair tariff provisions that are unreasonable and should be conceded in order to avoid an outright trade war that benefits no one.

It isn’t 1948 anymore – if Italy’s economy is still a wreck, the United States has no responsibility for that.  If Germany has idiotically assumed the societal burden of importing more than a million Muslim refugees into its country, that was not America’s decision.  If England’s economy is struggling under the growing burdens of creeping fascim, America did not do that.  Sorry.

These other leaders dislike President Trump because, unlike most of his post-WWII predecessors, he refuses to smile and keep up the globalist lie.  He’s exposing them for the leeches they have long been, and won’t be giving in.  They all know this, they know the difficulties this new reality will cause them at home, and really have no idea how they’re going to deal with it all.

America First.  Finally, a U.S. President who means that when he says it.  Despite all the warnings Trump gave them throughout 2015 and 2016, these other national leaders never believed he would follow through.

Just another day of Trump putting America first.

That is all.

That “Blue Wave” May Be About to Become a “Red Flood”

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Irrelevant.  Americans today need to know what too much #WINNING does to them. – The National Centers for Environmental Information (there’s your all-time politically correct name) issued a report on Monday that says that watching too much bad news can be hazardous to one’s health.  So now you know why all of your Democrat friends are feeling so bad these days.

Where were these guys when Obama and Kerry were surrendering to Iran’s Mullahs? – Senate Democrats, feeling a sudden need to pretend to care about U.S. national security – something that historically only happens when a Republican president is about to achieve a major foreign policy victory for the country – issued their list of “demands” for what President Trump must include in any treaty with North Korea that will need to be ratified in the Senate.

These demands include the following:

  1. The deal must include the dismantlement and removal of all nuclear, chemical, and biological weapons from North Korea.
  2. The U.S. must ensure a “complete and verifiable denuclearization of North Korea,” removing all items related to nuclear-weapons production to prevent the country from reversing course.
  3. North Korea must end its ballistic-missile program as well.
  4. North Korea must comply with “anywhere, anytime” inspections to ensure it is not cheating on the deal, and sanctions must be immediately restored if it does cheat.
  5. The deal must be permanent.

If it strikes you that this list of “demands” reads like the list of goals the Trump Administration has been talking about in advance of the June 12 summit meeting in Singapore, that’s because they basically are one and the same.

Look, the Democrats are beginning to panic about their prospects in November’s mid-term elections.  Bereft of any bright policy ideas of their own which might attract new voters, they are now going about the process of attempting to co-opt conservative positions on issues, starting with the negotiations with North Korea.  This is what Bill Clinton taught them to do in 1996, and it’s what they’ve tried in every election cycle since that time.

Just a couple of months ago they and their fake news media agents were convinced that they were headed towards a grand victory, a “Blue Wave” that would see them win a majority in the U.S. House of Representatives, maybe the Senate as well, and make sweeping gains in state governorships and legislative houses all over the country.

But what had once been as much as an 18-point lead in congressional generic preference polling has now essentially disappeared as the Trump tax cuts have kicked the economy into high gear and good news for America continues to pour in from around the world.  Americans are becoming optimistic about the future again – one recent “right direction/wrong direction” shows the “right direction” answer coming in at its highest level in many years – and that is never a positive sign for the eternally depressed and negative Democrats, who rely on human misery and suffering to build voter support.

Think about it:  Have you seen a single Democrat politician or liberal talking head on your television talk about what a great thing it is that the Black and Hispanic rates of unemployment are at all-time lows?  No, of course you haven’t.  Democrats don’t want Blacks and Hispanics to have jobs – Democrats want Blacks and Hispanics to be dependent on the government because that’s the best way to ensure they will continue to vote in overwhelming majorities for Democrats.

So, Democrat “leaders” – such as they are – see all this good news taking place, they see Kanye West and other young African American leaders beginning to speak out about this orthodoxy they’ve held in place for half a century, and they have no idea at all what to do about it other than to resort back to the “triangulation” tactic they’ve employed in every election cycle for 22 years.  That’s what this Korea canard is all about, and you’re going to see more of that kind of co-option of GOP positions taking place in the coming weeks.

Because the reality is that, as we sit here today, the overarching national momentum in this election cycle is firmly behind the Republicans now, just as the overarching mood of the public had moved behind Donald Trump’s candidacy at this point in 2016.  That could change between now and November, but it would take some extraordinary paradigm-shifting event to make it happen.

When you see San Fran Nan advocating for additional tax cuts and Chuckie Schumer out in Chicago or Detroit or Baltimore talking about the need to get tough on crime, you’ll know for sure that the once-vaunted “Blue Wave” is about to turn into a “Red Flood.”  This is all very predictable.

About that Bill Clinton interview… – It occurs to me this morning that this NBC interview with Bill Clinton and an extremely uncomfortable James Patterson is a real teaching moment for Millennials.  Because this is the first time in their adult lives that they have seen the real Bill Clinton that we all had to deal with throughout the decade of the ’90s put on display for everyone to see.

There he was in all his sociopathic glory, shifting blame, denying responsibility, angry at being questioned, refusing to apologize and pretending that it is indeed he who is the actual victim here.  Bill’s all about the whole #MeToo movement, only in his mind it’s all about him, not the many women he abused throughout his adult life.  Poor, poor persecuted Bill.  Why, I kept waiting for him to toss out the whole “vast rightwing conspiracy” canard just for fun.

Here’s a hint for all you Millennials who were not really following politics while Bill was chasing 22 year-old interns around the Oval Office:  The most telling line of that entire interview is when he says, when asked about his Monica Lewinsky scandal, “Nobody believes I got out of that for free. I left the White House $16 million in debt.”

See, with the Clintons, it was always all about the money.  Bill and Hillary Clinton are America’s Greatest Grifters.  Everything they did, every office they sought was all about what was in it for them.  Their having debt at the end of Bill’s terms in office – fact-checkers show it wasn’t really even close to the number Billy boy tossed out – was in their minds justification for having Hillary turn her gig as Obama’s Secretary of State into a classic mob influence racket in which she was only too happy to sell U.S. foreign policy decisions to the highest bidders.

The Clintons – both of them – were always just in it for the money.  They were always looking for their next scam.  For Hillary, being elected President was going to be the most glorious scam of all.

Be happy she didn’t make it there.

Just another day in Panicking Democrats America.

That is all.

Twerking FBI Agents, Fired Korean Generals and Another Fake News Media-Invented Controversy. *Yawn*

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

That time when Bill Clinton accidentally stumbled into the truth. – Lifetime woman abuser (that has nothing to do with this story, but it should be repeated every time his name is mentioned) Bill Clinton told an interviewer over the weekend that – gasp! – the  news media gave favorable treatment to Barack Hussein Obama.  Go figure.  Who knew?

“They liked him. And they liked having the first African American president and he was a good president I think,” Clinton said about the media.  Uh-ooooohhhhhhh.  He went ‘there’, the place no one is ever supposed to go in telling the actual truth about the media’s treatment of Obama, and it naturally caused the extremely predictable outrage among social justice warriors on social media.  So tiresome.

Clinton also told the same interviewer that “I couldn’t be elected anything now ’cause I just don’t like embarrassing people,” after being asked what would happen if he ran in 2020.  Funny, he never had any problem at all embarrassing Paula Jones or Monica Lewinsky or Kathleen Willey or Juanita Broaddrick or Sandra James or Christy Zercher or…ok, enough.

Go away, Bill.  Just.  go.  away.

Hey, the FBI is just one grand dumpster fire at this point, huh? – An off-duty FBI agent was twerking on a Denver dance floor Saturday night.  What could possibly go wrong, you ask?

Well, let me tell you.  The guy – who has yet to be publicly identified so we call all shame him out of his job – took time away from twerking long enough to do an awkward back flip, during the course of which his service handgun very predictably fell from its holster onto the floor.  Not that big a deal, you say, right?  Could happen to anybody who feels the need to carry their favorite pistol with them when they go out for a night of shaking their booty.

But wait, this story gets worse.  Much, much worse.

This studly, twerking FBI agent with a bad case of Saturday Night Fever naturally panics (because apparently that’s what they train FBI agents to do these days) and scrambles to grab his gun.  In the process of doing that, he pulls the damn trigger and because he hadn’t bothered to set the damn safety, it goes off, hitting a bystander in the leg.

So, you’re a well-trained FBI agent who has just accidentally shot a bystander in the leg with your service gun while out for a night of imitating Mylie Cyrus – what do you do?  Well, this guy, no doubt implementing the exact training he personally learned from ex-FBI Director and current Teenage Drama Queen James Comey, calmly re-holstered his pistol and just walked away, leaving others to call for an ambulance and get the victim to the hospital.  After all, he’s probably too busy fixing some election there in Colorado.

This is your FBI in action, folks.  I swear I don’t make this stuff up.  Who could?

Chances for a Korea de-nuke deal just got better.  Much, much better. – Don’t expect the fake news media to put much emphasis on this very key story since it’s great news for America and thus terrible news for Democrats, but Reuters reports that, according to senior U.S. officials, the three top generals in the North Korean armed forces were replaced over the weekend.

So, why is this important?  Read this from the Japanese Yonhap News Agency, from a report released later on Sunday:

“The North appears to have brought in new figures amid the changes in inter-Korean relations and the situation on the Korean Peninsula as the previous officials lacked flexibility in thinking.”

The phrase “lacked flexibility in thinking” means the three guys who were replaced were opposed to the Crazy Little Fat Guy doing any deal with the U.S. and South Korea to de-nuclearize the Korean Peninsula.  These three firings come a few weeks after Army Gen. Kim Su-gil’s replacement of Kim Jong-gak as director of the General Political Bureau of the Korean People’s Army.  Taken all together, they most likely give Kim Jong Un the flexibility he needs to move forward on a deal because he no longer has to worry about a military coup taking place while he’s out of the country.  Funny how that works.

Democrats and their fake news agents will do their best to ignore this crucial development or spin it into something negative.  Of course, that’s been their strategy with the booming economy and employment numbers too, and we see how well that’s all working out for them.  It’s just a joy to watch them stumble and bumble around on this stuff.

Your fake news media in action! – Ask leading question, get answer you wanted to the leading question, spin into negative story about Trump.  Wash, rinse and repeat.  Whenever there’s a semi-slow news day, or a day in which the news for Trump just shows too much WINNING to report, this is the formula the fake news media uses to generate some new controversy.

So it went with Rudy Giuliani Sunday on ABC’s This Week With George Stephanopoulous, the former Clinton toady who pretends to be a news guy now.  When Georgie the Toady asked Giuliani if the President has the power to pardon himself, Rudy gave the correct answer:  Yes.  See, Rudy’s actually read the Constitution, which very clearly gives any sitting president the power to pardon anyone he wants.

Giuliani went on to say that President Trump has never and would never even consider doing any such thing, but the fake news media had its fake controversy for the day, a controversy that enabled all the fake reporters, fake editors and fake talking heads to change the subject from the booming economy and very encouraging developments on the North Korea front.

Thus, we ended up with an entire afternoon of endless speculation in the fake news media about whether a President who has committed no crimes and has not even been accused of committing any crimes and who his lawyer says has never even entertained the idea is actually planning to pardon himself.

You want to know why the formerly semi-noble profession of journalism is almost dead in this country?  This is just one of about 10,000 reasons, but it’s one of the biggest.

Just another day in Fake News Media America.

That is all.

Despite all the Media Hysterics over Porn Stars and Mueller, Trump Just Keeps on Winning

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Tired of all this Winning yet?  Part I – California Governor Jerry Brown announced late Wednesday that he will send 400 state National Guard troops to the border at the request of President Donald Trump.  Brown, always under pressure to pander to his state’s open borders crowd, claimed the troops would not be used for “enforcing federal immigration laws.”  Rather, he said their task would be to supplement state and federal efforts to “combat transnational crime.”

Note to Governor Brown:  Same thing.

Thank you for your service.

Tired of all this Winning yet?  Part II – Speaker Paul Ryan, under whose leadership federal spending has mushroomed at an unchecked, record pace, announced he would not seek re-election to his congressional seat this November.  Immediately upon his announcement, all the inside-the-Beltway pundits warned us in unison that we are sure going to miss Paul Ryan after he’s gone.

These, of course, are the very same inside-the-Beltway pundits who warned us in unison that we would sure miss John Boehner after he was gone.  All of you who have missed John Boehner for even a millisecond, stand up so you can be recognized.  Go ahead, stand.  No, seriously, get up off your sofa and…

Ok, that’s my point.  The Speaker is dead, long live the new Speaker.  I assure you, life will go on.

To his credit, the Speaker said that his decision was predicated on his desire to spend more time with his wife and young children, and he strongly implied that his days of seeking public office are over.  Let’s hope that’s true – he has a beautiful family.

Tired of all this Winning yet?  Part III – Under repeated questioning from Republican house members during his second day of testimony, Facebook android CEO Mark Zuckerberg blinked and claimed that, in the act of banning the completely un-threatening Diamond & Silk as somehow being a “threat to the Facebook community,” his evil minions had “made an enforcement error.”

He also claimed – falsely – that his evil minions had in fact already been in touch with the pro-Trump African American women to correct their error.  This was news to the pair, who are still telling Fox News this morning that they have not heard a peep out of anyone at Facebook.

“We have not been in communication with Facebook,” Hardaway said. “We have not been contacted. We haven’t spoken to anyone over the phone. So that was a lie.”

If this surprises you, you need to pay closer attention.

Tired of all this Winning yet?  Part IV –  Amid all the hysteria over the abusive Mueller investigation and false Zuckerberg testimony, the fake news media barely noticed the new executive order issued by President Trump on Tuesday.

Trust me, this is important.  This order reverses an Obama order that basically ended work requirements for welfare, and, more destructively to our society, allowed states to offer welfare and other social benefits to illegal aliens.

The Trump order requires states to comply with 8 U.S.C. 1611(a), which denies such benefits to non-qualifying illegal aliens, which will end up being almost all of them.  Here is the relevant passage:

“(b)  Within 90 days of the date of this order, the Secretaries shall each submit a report to the President, through the Director of the Office of Management and Budget and the Assistant to the President for Domestic Policy, that:

(i)    states how their respective agencies are complying with 8 U.S.C. 1611(a), which provides that an alien who is not a “qualified alien” as defined by 8 U.S.C. 1641 is, subject to certain statutorily defined exceptions, not eligible for any Federal public benefit as defined by 8 U.S.C. 1611(c);”

Once the illegals who entered the U.S. simply to get on the government dole start realizing that dole is going to stop, the self-deportations will begin.

And the fake news media, so focused as it is on porn stars and its dead Russia Collusion fantasy play, barely blinked.  Amazing.

So, why is the President just now taking this action, 15 months into office?  Mr. Trump was holding out hope for a long time that he could get the Democrats – and Speaker Ryan and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell – to work with him in good faith to reach an agreement on some form of comprehensive immigration reform. He has now realized that none of those congressional actors have ever had any intention of doing that, so is now taking every executive action he can take to improve the situation on his own.

He obviously reached that conclusion after congress presented him with the atrocity of an Omnibus budget bill in March, and has been taking various actions to protect the border since that time.  Tuesday’s executive memorandum was just the latest such action, and most likely won’t be the last.

Just another day in Trump just keeps on #Winning America.

That is all.

Democrats: the Gun-Banning Vampires of American Society

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Tired of all this Winning yet? – After going through what seems to have been a fairly standard 10% correction during early February, the stock markets have bounced back.  The Dow Jones Industrial average rose by 399 points on Monday, and has now regained more than half of the losses from earlier in the month.  Meanwhile, the economy is rolling along so strongly that many economists fear it will create more new jobs than the nation has qualified candidates to fill.  This is what is known in economics 101 class as a good problem to have.  #Winning.

Ryan Seacrest is getting his moment in the #MeToo sun, as his former personal stylist accuses him of all manner of Harvey Weinstein-ish behavior towards her.  Should make for a fun season on the revival of American Idol.  Hey, when do Joe Scarborough and Chris Cuomo get to have their #MeToo moments?

After spending ten days in the wake of the Florida school shootings laughably claiming they didn’t want to ban guns, the Democrat Party has done what it always does, which is demonstrate it was lying in unison.  On Monday, more than 150 Democrats in the U.S. House of Representatives introduced a bill that would ban vaguely-defined “assault weapons.”

If you’re thinking this is a repeat of Dianne Feinstein’s 1990s-era fiasco that sought to ban weapons based solely on what they look like, think again.  This bill would go much further, prohibiting “the ‘sale, transfer, production, and importation’ of semi-automatic rifles and pistols that can hold a detachable magazine, as well as semi-automatic rifles with a magazine that can hold more than 10 rounds. Additionally, the legislation bans the sale, transfer, production, and importation of semi-automatic shotguns with features such as a pistol grip or detachable stock, and ammunition feeding devices that can hold more than 10 rounds.”

If any of that comes as a surprise to you, then you have probably also been surprised over the last 26 years as the Democrat Party and its leftwing activist support base have worked as hard as human beings possibly could to erode your right to free exercise of religion, your freedom from self-incrimination, your freedom from unreasonable search and seizure, not to mention their all-out assault on your first amendment right to free speech in recent years.  But again, none of that should have surprised you, either.

It should not have to be repeated yet again, but here goes:  Anyone who adheres to leftist orthodoxy – as basically every Democrat in America today does – is a budding tyrant.  Their policy choices cannot be supported by facts or logic;  thus, the only way Democrats can gain power and maintain is by lying.  The lies can only be sustained if the public is ignorant, demoralized and helpless.  The way to keep the public ignorant, demoralized and helpless is to control what they say, do and think.  The way to control what they say, do and think is to rob Americans of their constitutional rights.

There.  Print that paragraph out and tape it to your refrigerator door for future reference.

Hey, I thought that whole “mansplaining” thing was supposed be bad. – Meanwhile, the Democrats with press passes at CNN took the whole gun confiscation argument into the realm of the absurd – which is CNN’s main core competency, after all – as law enforcement analyst Tom Fuentes suggested that 52% of the U.S. population (that would be all you women out there, or is it “wymyn?”) can’t own handguns because “they wear skirts” and stuff.  I swear I don’t make this stuff up.  Who could?

In other news, 17 year-old Parkland, Florida motor-mouth David Hogg lobbed out the king of all futile gestures, swearing that he won’t go back to school until the Florida state legislature passes a bill to ban guns.  Uh, ok.  You go, dude.

In all seriousness, does this kid not have parents?  Does he not have even a single responsible adult in his life who gives a damn about him?  Hogg is obviously being fed talking points – anyone who has done communications or public policy work for a living will recognize that reality about him in 3 seconds of listening to the things he recites from memory on CNN and MSNBC every day.  That means that he has gotten himself tied up with either the local Democrat Party or some group of leftist activists, which is essentially the same thing.

Some responsible adult who actually gives a damn about Mr. Hogg needs to sit him down and explain to him that these activists, and the leftwing activists who masquerade as “journalists” on the cable news channels, are not his friends.  They don’t care about him or his future.  They think he’s cute, fairly articulate, and that he currently serves a temporary purpose in helping them hammer Republicans and President Trump.  Once that purpose has run its course – which will take no more than another week or two – all of these people who Hogg currently believes are his friends will drop him like a hot potato and pretend not to know him for all the rest of his natural life.

These people Hogg has gotten himself tied up with are ghouls, the vampires of American society.  They suck the life out of people like Hogg to feed their political purposes, and then discard the lifeless carcass once it has finished feeding their current narrative.  Hogg obviously has been led to believe that his current actions are setting himself up for a career in the media or politics.  That is sadly, horrifically incorrect, and some adult in his life needs to intervene, soon.

Just another day in Democrats are ghouls America.

That is all.

The Media Just Keeps Faking The News And Donald Trump Loves It

  • These continue to be trying times for the NFL.  While most teams continue to announce their games as “sell outs”, thanks mainly to corporate ticket-buying programs, games all over the NFL were played to sparse attendance on Sunday as actual fans choose to stay home in droves.  This week’s Thursday Night Football game between the Denver Broncos and some other team that no one cares about received the worst Thursday game ratings in years.  The player protests of the national anthem go on and on, though their coverage has been muted by the TV networks desperate to move on from the matter, but the damage has been done.  The sub-moron team owners recently chose to extend the contract of Commissioner Roger Goodell, saddling the league with a raging nitwit-in-charge for another five-year term.
  • If you want another reason why many fans have abandoned a league they supported for many years, all you need do is look at what happened at the end of the game between the Steelers and Patriots on Sunday.  After Tom Brady had led his team on one of his 50+ 4th quarter TD drives to apparently put the game away, the Steelers stormed right back down the field in 3 plays, scoring what appeared to be the winning TD on a pass from QB Ben Roethlisberger to TE Jesse James with 28 seconds left.  This was a play that would have counted as a clear and unambiguous touchdown at any other level of football – college, high school, jr. high or Pop Warner – it was a TD anywhere else on earth as soon as the ball crossed over the plane of the goal line with the receiver in firm possession of it.
  • But, because the receiver lost control of the ball when he slammed to the ground in the end zone, the replay officials called the play an incomplete pass.  Roethlisberger threw an interception on the next play, and the game had been literally given to the Patriots by the officials.  This is the same horrible, idiotic rule that was invoked to hand an apparent Dallas Cowboys playoff win in 2014 to the Green Bay Packers instead.  The fact that this lunatic rule is still on the NFL’s books three years later tells you all you need to know about the morons who run this league.
  • The fake editors and fake reporters at CNN will get this story wrong, too. – The UK Guardian reports that Pope Francis “has criticised journalists who dredge up old scandals and sensationalise the news, saying it’s a “very serious sin” that hurts all involved.”  In response, fake reporters all over the fake news media here in the U.S. were assigned by their fake editors to look into the Pope’s background and see what, if any scandals they could dig up.
  • Speaking of faking the news, the national news media and the Democrat Party coordinated all weekend long to push a fake story about President Trump supposedly planning to fire Robert Mueller.  Faced with having to make the GOP’s pending passage of the largest tax cut in American history the lead story of the weekend, the Democrats and fake news outlets did what they do anytime they’re faced with having to cover a positive story about the Trump Administration – they made a fake story up that they could focus on instead.
  • Late on Friday, the Democrats sent obscure California Congresswoman Jackie Speier out on TV to push out the claim that there was a “rumor” going around congress that the President planned to make a nationally televised speech right before Christmas announcing the firing of the Special Counsel.  Once Speier had made that claim – a claim no one else in congress was making, a claim put out into the public space absent the slightest shred of evidence, a claim made despite the consistent, repeated denials from the White House every time the question has been asked since March – it became the lead story on every fake news broadcast, headline news in every fake news paper across the country, and the lead story on every one of the Sunday morning fake news programs.
  • Thus, for an entire weekend, when responsible, real journalists would have been working to inform their readers and viewers about what this new, gigantic reform of the U.S. tax system – the first such major reform in more than three decades – means to them, the fake news media focused instead on coordinating with the Democrat Party to promote a myth.
  • Granted, there are all sorts of great reasons why Robert Mueller deserves to be fired, including 1) his appointment by Rod Rosenstein was illegitimate to begin with, 2) Mueller’s massive personal conflicts of interest related to the case, 3) his stacking of his staff with an array of hyper-partisan hacks, and 4) his resorting to illegal means of obtaining the Trump Transition team’s email records, to name just a few.
  • Despite all those great reasons that would fully justify Mueller’s firing, there has never been the slightest indication that the President had any plans to do so.  As he has been since Day 1 of his presidency, Donald Trump appears perfectly content to let the media fake up all the fake stories it wants to fake, while he and his administration just keep executing radical change for real Americans with little notice.
  • Winning.  So, so, soooo much winning.

Just another weekend in So, So, Soooo Much Winning! America.

That is all.

The Campaign Update Week In Review – Soooo Much Winning!

Here’s where we are in President Donald Trump’s Administration eight days before Christmas…

  • The economy is booming, with the New York branch of the Federal Reserve now estimating it will grow at the pace of 3.98% in the fourth quarter.  That would represent our third straight quarter above 3% economic growth, a feat not achieved in over a decade.
  • Unemployment is nearing a record low, asThirteen states this year have seen their unemployment rates drop to the lowest levels ever recorded since the federal government began keeping track of state-level data more than four decades ago.”
  • Regulations are vanishing at an amazing pace –  When he came into office in January, one of the first things President Trump did was issue an executive order mandating that, for every new regulation his agencies propose, they must eliminate at least two existing regulations.  The Trump Administration announced that it has in fact eliminated a staggering 22 existing regulations for each new proposal.  This rapid elimination of the Obama regulatory agenda is probably the main reason why the economy is booming today.
  • Obama holdovers are also vanishing at a rapid pace More than 700 employees have now left the EPA since President Trump took office.  Of course, as a friend pointed out Twitter, most of them will just go back to the radical leftwing anti-development groups they came from and continuing being a burden to society, but at least taxpayers won’t have to pay their ridiculous salaries anymore.
  • Meanwhile, at the Department of the Interior (DOI), Secretary Ryan Zinke announced this week that he had fired 4 senior DOI employees for charges of sexual harassmenet, and  said “I will remove 400 more if necessary.”  Cool.  Get after it, Mr. Secretary.
  • The Dow Jones Industrials closed at a record high on Friday, marking the 69th time that has happened since Donald Trump won the election over the Pantsuit Princes last November.  That is not a coincidence, either.
  • The largest tax cut in American history is on the verge of being passed – As mentioned in yesterday’s Campaign Update, the announcements by GOP Senators Marco Rubio and Bob Corker that they will support the bill would give Mitch McConnell the 51 votes he needs on Tuesday to send the bill to the President’s desk.
  • CNN, the king of the fake news universe, continues to suck wind behind Fox News and MSNBC in the cable news race.
  • The Federal Communications Commission rescinded the Obama Administration’s absurdly mis-named “Net Neutrality” rules.  These rules actually were designed to give favorable treatment to Obama-preferred Internet behemoths like Facebook, YouTube and Twitter, in that presidency’s fervent efforts to have the government picking winners and losers in every industry.  No more.
  • #MeToo meets “Hardball” – fake MSNBC host Chris Matthews found himself the latest NBC celebrity to be embroiled in the never-ending sexual abuse scandal on Saturday, when it was revealed that the network had paid out $40,000 to an accuser in 1999 and formally reprimanded him for his behavior.  Of course, like congress, the Peacock Network – which obviously has had a whole bunch of peacocks in rut running around its halls for many years – kept it all a secret until it had no choice.  With Matt Lauer, Mark Halperin and now Matthews all outed, The Campaign Update just can’t wait to find out what NBC has been keeping secret about its other hosts.
  • The Mueller-led attempted coup d’etat continues to unravel, and leftwingers are getting so desperate that they are now resorting to sending California Congresswoman Jackie Speer out to push fake “rumors” that the President is planning to fire Mueller before Christmas.   Hilariously, 70 year-old commie producer Rob Reiner and 80+ year-old washed up actor George Takkei both threatened to “take to the streets” should Trump fire the Witch-Hunter-in-Chief.  Now, that would be fun to watch.

Sadly, that won’t be happening, because Mueller won’t be going anywhere, at least not until the DOJ Inspector General issues his final report on wrongdoing within the DOJ and FBI in January.  Then, all bets will be off.

Just another week in Soooo Much Winning! America.

That is all.
