Recapping A Historic Week of #WINNING

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

When the history of the Trump Administration is written, the week just past will be remembered as the week in which the tide of history turned, not just in favor of President Donald Trump, but in favor of the American people and the American Republic as well. The forces of globalism are in retreat and tatters all over the developed world, and nowhere is that more clear than here in the United States, thanks to Mr. Trump’s endurance and leadership.

Let’s take a look at the events that have taken place since last Saturday, February 1, 2020:

Brexit becomes official. – There is no question that the fortunes of the Brexit movement in the UK and the nationalist Trump movement in the U.S. have been intertwined since the day Donald and Melania Trump rode the escalator into the lobby of Trump Tower to announce his candidacy. After a long and bitter, 3-1/2 year battle since the day it had been initially approved by the British voters, Brexit became official at 12:00 midnight, February 1, restoring the national sovereignty over the United Kingdom.

That moment in time came roughly 5 minutes after the United States Senate had voted to reject the calling of any new witnesses in its impeachment trial of President Trump, ensuring his ultimate acquittal in the Democrat/media’s absurd coup d’etat effort. The symbolism of those two historic events occurring within mere minutes of one another cannot be overemphasized.

The President’s historic State of the Union Speech – The optics around this speech could not have been more positive for President Trump or more negative for Nancy Pelosi and the Democrats in attendance. Americans got to see the true nature of the leftist radicals who make up the party’s caucus in congress, as shot after shot from the cameras showed their members scowling, jeering and even at times hissing as the President introduced a young mother who gave birth to a premature baby; another single mom to whose child he awarded an opportunity scholarship; a talk radio host with stage 4 cancer to whom he had the First Lady award a Medal of Freedom; and the rightful president of Venezuela.

The speech drove Speaker Nancy Pelosi into such a pique of outright rage that she tore the text to shreds as Trump finished, creating a visual so stunning and depraved that it will likely be used in most Republican TV ads for the general election.

Full acquittal. – Just 20 hours later, President Trump became the second president to be fully acquitted of impeachment charges, a verdict that will live in history for all-time. Simultaneously, the leader of the anti-Trump RINO faction, Mitt Romney, proved himself to be a despicable snake by becoming the first senator in history to cast a pro-conviction vote on one of the two articles of impeachment. Whether he understands it or not, Romney is now finished a viable candidate for any future GOP presidential nomination. As has so often been the case, yet another Trump enemy destroys himself with his own actions.

Dismissal of the Emoluments Clause litigation. – In a unanimous decision, a 3-judge panel of the DC Circuit Court of Appeals – none of whom are Trump appointees – dismissed the ridiculous and abusive lawsuit brought by 29 Democrat senators and 186 Democrat representatives alleging that President Trump had violated the Emoluments Clause of the Constitution. Another major win for the President in a clear case of mindless harassment by the Democrats.

The utter collapse of Joe Biden. – Quid Pro Joe Biden, who has been the clear front-runner for the Democrat presidential nomination for 10 solid months, saw his base of support completely collapse during the week. This was inevitable, as voters who just recently began paying attention to the Democrat race began to realize that Biden is clearly impaired and not in any way capable of holding the highest office in the land. The result was a poor, 4th-place finish in Iowa, where he barely was able to finish ahead 0f Amy Klobuchar. Biden’s polling numbers have nose-dived not only in New Hampshire, but also in Nevada and South Carolina, setting up the possibility that he will not win a single contest before heading into Super Tuesday.

The Democrat Party implodes in Iowa. – As if Pelosi’s antics weren’t damaging enough, the effort by the DNC to rig the results of the Iowa caucuses against The Commie, Bernie Sanders, resulted in such a mass of confusion and outright buffoonery that even the New York Times felt obligated to report on it. It is a muck-up of epic proportions from which the Party may never be able to recover.

As I write this today, six days after the voting, party officials have still been unable to release final results, and “irregularities” in which the published results do not match the results tabulated by the individual caucus managers have been identified in 95 of the state’s 99 counties. Unsurprisingly, virtually all of those “irregularities” work against The Commie and in favor of Preacher Pete Buttigieg, who the Party has tried to portray as the Caucus “winner.”

This is electoral larceny on an unprecedentedly grand scale.

Incredible jobs numbers. – On Wednesday, the ADP report on private sector jobs added for January came in at 291,000, almost doubling the consensus predictions by “experts” of 160,000. On Friday, the Labor Department non-farms jobs report for the month came in at 225,000, blasting through the “experts” forecast of 165,000. Despite a whopping 183,000 previously-discouraged workers coming back into the labor force during January, the rate of unemployment for all classes of Americans remained at record or near-record lows.

Cleaning House. – To cap off the most amazing week of non-stop WINNING of this or perhaps any presidency, the Administration began the process of cleaning house of coup plotters. Both of the Vindman twins serving as spies and leakers at the NSC were escorted from the White House premises late Friday afternoon, and a few hours later, smarmy Ambassador to the EU Gordon Sondland was relieved of his official duties. Much, much more cleaning house remains to be done, but these dismissals were a very fine way to start.

By week’s end, the Democrats were reeling from their week of horrific losing, obviously at a loss over where to head next. Their media supporters, meanwhile, were so panicked over what they were seeing that not a single Sunday morning fakenews program invited anyone from the White House to appear as a guest.

The Democrats no doubt will now cast about for another scam to try to run against the President, but the tactic has become so blatantly obvious to the vast majority of Americans that few will take seriously anything they and their corrupt media toadies drum up next. The Democrat Party, through its incessant dishonest machinations against the President over the last four years, has literally turned itself into the Boy who Cried Wolf. Not a good look for a political party with no policy agenda.

As for President Trump and his Administration, it’s hard to see what they could do to even come close to the level of WINNING seen in the past week.

Wait, how about this: The Department of Justice is still sitting on unacted-upon criminal referrals targeting Peter Strzok, Andrew McCabe and James Comey. Acting on some or all of those sure would make for a fun week.

How about it, Attorney General Barr?

That is all.

Ralph Northam’s Despicable Effort to Create Another Charlottesville

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

WINNING. Sooooooo much WINNING. – Here’s what is funny about this: I’ve actually had complaints this week that I’ve been focusing too much on all the WINNING President Trump is bringing to our country. So, some people who claim to be fans of President Trump actually are getting tired of all this WINNING. Once again, Trump was right when he said “We will WIN so much, you’ll get tired of all the WINNING.”  You can’t make this stuff up.

One more time, every major U.S. stock market index closed at record high levels as investors express their enthusiasm over the President’s Phase I Trade Agreement with China and congress’s final passage of the USMCA. Despite all the false criticism emanating from the corrupt national news media, the markets understand how these trade deals with America’s three largest trading partners will positively impact this country’s economy for years to come.

So, suck it, all you fake, corrupt journalists and contributors at CNN, MSNBC, the New York Times and the Washington Post. Your efforts, in concert with the Democrat Party, to talk this country into an economic recession that began last summer have, like everything else you have tried to harm this President and what he is accomplishing for America, miserably failed. That could not possibly happen to a nicer bunch of evil minions.

Meanwhile, out in the Commonwealth of Virginia, Governor Baby Killer Blackface KKK Ralph Northam thinks creating a mere recession is just small potatoes. – Northam, along with this Democrat majority in the state assembly, is apparently intent on planting the seeds for a second civil war. That appears to be the only rational interpretation of the moves and public statements Governor Northam and fellow Virginia Democrats have been making in recent weeks.

As the Democrats in the assembly advance a series of gun control bills , assembly members and  Northam himself have promised they will result in law enforcement going door to door if necessary to confiscate certain kinds of guns from ordinary citizens. Gun rights groups have very predictably responded by organizing a massive rally in support of the 2nd Amendment to take place in the state capital of Richmond this weekend. The rally will be held Monday as a part of the Virginia Civil Defense League’s (VCDL) annual lobby day.

Governor Northam has reacted harshly – again, very predictably – to the rally, declaring a state of emergency based on only the vaguest of pretenses.

Here’s the text of his declaration:

Credible intelligence gathered by Virginia’s law enforcement agencies indicates that tens of thousands of advocates plan to converge on Capitol Square for events culminating on January 20, 2020. Available information suggests that a substantial number of these demonstrators are expected to come from outside the Commonwealth, may be armed, and have as their purpose not peaceful assembly but violence, rioting, and insurrection.”

Have you ever seen so many weasel words crammed into just two sentences?

“Credible intelligence” and “available information” you say? What in the hell does that even mean? And “plan to converge on Capitol Square”? How did you know that? Why, could it be because the VCDL properly applied for a lawful permit to use that public space? You know, like a group of good, law-abiding American citizens, i.e., not Antifa, might do?

And what is a “substantial number” in your mind, Governor? Is it 1,000? 100? 10?

Democrats like Northam never complain when people come from out of state to join in liberal protest marches, or hell, even to vote illegally in their elections. Just so long as they vote Democrat, right? Right.

Clearly, Governor Blackface and his friends in the corrupt news media are attempting to set the narrative for Sunday’s rally as being the sequel to the 2017 Charlottesville fiasco, when a couple of dozen bad actors provided the pretense for the media to smear thousands attending an otherwise peaceful rally as being “white supremacists.” This is how every rally-goer on Sunday will also be portrayed if the media can find one clown wearing a confederate flag patch on his jacket or forming his fingers into what used to be the “ok” sign. So, expect that to happen.

Regardless of what really takes place in Richmond this weekend, Governor KKK will without any question at all attempt to spin it as a rationale to continue pushing for his gun control/confiscation legislation. But he and his fellow Democrats have a real, sticky problem in seeing this effort through to its logical conclusion.

That problem centers on the reality that Virginia is a mostly-rural state. Once you get out of the isolated population centers of Richmond, Arlington and Alexandria, the rest of Virginia is as red as red can be. The state’s 2016 election map looks like a miniature microcosm of the national map, with small islands of blue interspersed amidst a sea of red:

Trump Scrambles Open Race for Virginia Governor

Prior to 2009, Virginia actually was a fairly reliable state for Republicans. But that has all changed with eight years of America’s Biggest Mistake, Barack Obama, and the massive expansion of the D.C.-based federal bureaucracy he inflicted on the nation. Even with Obama’s rapid raising of federal salaries, real estate in the District of Columbia remained too expensive for most bureaucrats, so tens of thousands of them settled across the Potomac in Arlington and Alexandria.

Given that well over 90% of federal bureaucrats are Democrats by nature, that massive emigration of the bureaucracy into Virginia ended up shifting the state’s politics.

Very predictably, those red, rural counties have taken exception to the Democrats’ looming gun grab. At last count, 105 counties and cities in Virginia have now taken the step of declaring themselves second amendment sanctuaries, with local officials promising to defy any efforts by the state government to confiscate firearms within their jurisdictions.

Should Governor Northam and his Democrat minions end up enacting these gun control bills and follow them through to their logical conclusion, many Virginia gun owners will not go quietly, and the country could find itself in a real constitutional crisis. Unless the Democrats begin to moderate what they are doing, they might be sowing the seeds for a second civil war in this country.

Sadly, Governor Northam seems by his actions and words to be perfectly fine with, and maybe even intent on, doing exactly that.

That is all.

Donald Trump Just Keeps on WINNING for America and Americans

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

Tired of all this WINNING yet? – As the demented, depraved, despicable and disloyal House Democrats were advancing their impeachment scam to the Senate on Wednesday, President Donald J. Trump was doing what he does best:  WINNING for America and the American people.

About 30 minutes after San Fran Nan and her House manager clownshow pep squad held their morning press conference, President Trump hosted a set of Chinese and U.S. dignitaries at the White House signing ceremony for the Phase I trade agreement between the two countries:

Image may contain: 3 people, suit

As you can see, the Dow leapt up over the 29,000 level as the President was speaking, and it remained there for the rest of the day, closing at an all-time high. All other major U.S. stock indexes finished the day at record levels.

The WINNING is only going to get better today, since as I’m typing this up, Iowa Senator Joni Ernst is telling Maria Bartiromo that the Senate will pass the massive US/Mexico/Canada Agreement (USMCA) at 11:00 ET this morning. The White House plans to hold a presidential signing ceremony for that major deal early next week, when the WINNING will continue.

Meanwhile, while all that WINNING was taking place, San Fran Nan held a presser at which she announced her House Manager Clownshow Pep Squad, pictured below.

Image may contain: 8 people

There they are in all their carnival midway glory, folks. All that’s missing is the bearded lady and wild man of Borneo, although Jabba the Nadler is a great stand-in for him.

In introducing her latest scam clown show cast, Pelosi promised that they would conduct themselves in a “solemn and prayerful” manner. She then held a celebratory signing ceremony, complete with gold-plated signing pens on which the word “United” was misspelled.

I kid you not, the Democrats are so damn divisive that they cannot even spell the word “United.”

Pelosi’s behavior during this celebration was so bizarre and at odds with her public statements that even people at CNN were disturbed by it all:

Once the signing party was completed and the misspelled pens had been passed out to the assembled circus clowns, Pelosi released the House Managers to hand-carry the articles of impeachment over to the Senate, in another traditional, solemn and prayerful exercise. Here is a shot of the Managers heading over to the Senate:

In other official Democrat Party news, one of their former leading contenders for the 2020 nomination – at least according to all the folks at CNN and MSNBC who put him on-air about 200 times – the Creepy Porn Lawyer, Michael Avenatti, was arrested yet again out in Los Angeles. To make things even better, this time he was arrested while he was at a license revocation hearing before the California State Bar!

As reported by The Federalist:

A new filing in the case United States v. Avenatti shows an arrest warrant has been issued for former Stormy Daniels lawyer Michael Avenatti. An image shows Avenatti being led out of the court by federal agents while he attended a hearing at the State Bar of California in Los Angeles.

Avenatti was at the State Bar of California for a disciplinary hearing for allegedly doctoring a document used to scam a client out of $840,000. Avenatti was allegedly funneling this money from his client for his personal use.

Here he is, being taken away by agents for booking:

Image

That, folks, is WINNING, BIGLY.

But wait, there’s even more WINNING! – Following Tuesday evening’s “debate” on CNN, Fauxcahontas angrily refused to shake the offered hand of The Commie after the two had had a tense back and forth over whether or not he had told her during a private meeting last year that he thought she should not run because it wasn’t possible for a woman to win the presidency.

Last night, CNN released a clip of that confrontation, complete with audio and subtitles:

Full Transcript:

Fauxcahontas: I think you called me a liar on national TV.

Commie: What?

Fauxcahontas: I think you called me a liar on national TV.

Commie: Let’s not do it right now. You want to have that discussion, we’ll have that discussion.

Fauxcahontas: Anytime. You called me a liar. You told me…

Sanders: All right. Let’s not do it now…

Steyer: I don’t want to get in the middle of it…I just want to say hi, Bernie. [What a weasel this guy is.]

Sanders: Yeah, good. Ok.

[End]

First of all, who hasn’t called Elizabeth Fake Indian Warren a damn liar? This woman has publicly and shamelessly lied about every single aspect of her life, and has been caught [fake] red-handed doing it time after time after time. In this contrived controversy, if you have to take someone’s word for it, the odds really favor the Commie.

But hey, these are Democrats we’re talking about here, people who view every second of their pathetic lives through the lens of identity politics. So, let them just fight it out, because every moment Democrats spend tearing themselves apart is a moment of WINNING for America.

That is all.

Trump’s Unprecedented Economic Success – The Story the Corrupt Media Won’t Tell

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

WINNING. Sooooo much WINNING.  – Guess what? Every major U.S. stock index rose yet again on Thursday as the wealth of positive economic news just kept rolling in. The NASDAQ saw it 11th consecutive record high close, and the Dow and S&P 500 also closed at new all-time high levels.

On the passage of President Trump’s tax cuts two years ago almost to the day, we here at the Campaign Update told you that those tax cuts, targeted as they are towards stimulating capital investment and economic growth, would quickly create a situation in which the economy’s largest problem would become a literal shortage of workers qualified to fill all the good-paying jobs that would be available. There is little doubt that we have now reached that happy point.

We now have record low unemployment levels for pretty much every category of American: Record low black unemployment; record low Hispanic unemployment; record low veteran unemployment; record low Asian unemployment; and a record high number of men and women gainfully employed in the U.S. economy. According to a recent report issued by the White House:

The surge in labor demand has resulted in 7 million job openings, which outnumber job seekers by more than 1 million. Before President Trump took office, there had never been more recorded job openings than unemployed workers.

Think about that. Never before, not even during the Reagan recovery, has the U.S. economy been in a situation in which it had created more open jobs than there were unemployed workers to fill them. That is a stunning achievement, and if a Democrat were president while such an outcome had been achieved it would be the only story being aired anywhere, anytime on cable news.

But because we are in the age of Trump, an age when our utterly corrupt fake news media studiously ignores reporting any news that reflects positively on the U.S. President, the White House must tell the story itself. This morning, to ensure our readers do get to see it, we are reprinting that December 16 report here.

Enjoy!

DRIVING A RECORD-SETTING ECONOMY: The booming economy and strong labor market allow Americans of all backgrounds to find work and succeed.

  • The current labor market revival is not a continuation of past trends, but instead a direct result of President Trump’s pro-growth policies.
  • Since President Trump was elected, more than 7 million jobs have been added to our economy – surpassing the Congressional Budget Office’s predictions by 5 million jobs.
  • This year, the unemployment rate has fallen to 3.5%, its lowest level in 50 years.
    • Unemployment for African Americans, Hispanic Americans, Asian Americans, veterans, individuals with disabilities, and those without a high school diploma have all reached record lows under President Trump.
  • The President’s policies are bringing people off the sidelines and into the labor force.
    • The prime age labor force has grown by 2.1 million under President Trump.
  • The surge in labor demand has resulted in 7 million job openings, which outnumber job seekers by more than 1 million.
    • Before President Trump took office, there had never been more recorded job openings than unemployed workers.
LOWERING INEQUALITY: President Trump’s policies are helping forgotten Americans across the country prosper, driving down income inequality.
  • Annual nominal wages grew by 3 percent in 2019 for the first time in a decade.
    • Nominal wage growth has now been at or above 3 percent for 16 straight months.
  • Wage growth for many previously forgotten groups is now higher than wage growth for more advantaged groups.
    • This is the case for lower-income workers compared to higher-income workers, workers compared to managers, and African Americans compared to white Americans.
    • These income gains mark a fundamental change compared to before President Trump’s inauguration, contributing to reduced income inequality.
  • When measured as the share of income earned by the top 20 percent, income inequality fell in 2018 by the largest amount in over a decade.
    • The Gini coefficient, an overall measure of inequality in the population, also fell in 2018.
LIFTING UP AMERICANS: The booming economy is lifting millions of Americans out of poverty and providing all people with the opportunity for a brighter future.
  • In 2018 alone, nearly 1.4 million Americans were lifted out of poverty.
    • The poverty rates for African Americans and Hispanic Americans reached historic lows in 2018.
    • Over 600,000 children being raised by single mothers were lifted out of poverty in 2018.
  • The number of people claiming unemployment insurance as a share of the population is the lowest on record.
  • Nearly 7 million fewer people are on food stamps than at the time of the 2016 election.
  • 380,000 fewer people are on Social Security Disability insurance than before the 2016 election.
  • Americans in economically-distressed communities are benefiting from increased investment thanks to the Opportunity Zones included in President Trump’s historic tax reform.

Here’s Why Pelosi is Making Impeachment Permanent

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

Tired of all this WINNING yet? Not a chance.  – All major U.S. market indexes once again attained all-time record high closes on Monday. It was the ninth straight record trading day on the NASDAQ, its longest such streak since 1998. As we approach the end of 2019, the Trump economy has now taken all of the Democrat/media recession promoters, folded them collectively up into a massive wad of smelly BS, and tossed them into the garbage dump of history. It’s a wonderful thing for America.

Tired of all this WINNING yet? Part II. – The stock markets weren’t the only area in which Americans were WINNING bigly on Monday. The leaders in China finally signaled capitulation to the reality of President Trump holding all the real leverage in the trade negotiations between the worlds two largest economies yesterday, announcing a massive reduction in tariffs on U.S. imports into their country:

China will lower tariffs on products ranging from frozen pork and avocado to some types of semiconductors next year as Beijing looks to boost imports amid a slowing economy and a trade war with the United States.

Next year, China will implement temporary import tariffs, which are lower than the most-favored-nation tariffs, on more than 850 products, the finance ministry said on Monday. By comparison, 706 products were taxed at temporary rates in 2019.

The tariff changes were made to “increase imports of products facing a relative domestic shortage, or foreign speciality goods for everyday consumption,” the ministry said in a statement on its website.

This, friends, is WINNING, and it is only going to get better in 2020. Heck, it will likely only get better before 2019 is over – after all, we have a whole week to go.

Why is Pelosi making impeachment a permanent process? – After I posted yesterday afternoon’s update detailing the Democrats’ latest move to make impeaching President Donald Trump a permanent feature of their rule in the House of Representatives, several readers sent messages asking why she and Schiff and Nadler would do this? What purpose does it serve?

Well, there are several reason why San Fran Nan’s traveling congressional freak show is going down this road – let’s lay them out in bullet point form:

  • First and foremost, the Democrats have nothing else. This is all they got, and they know it. They have no real policy agenda heading into the 2020 elections other than promoting the Green New Scam and Venezuela-style socialism, and those are unpopular policy proposals that they must pursue under the radar.
  • Second, because they can. There is no honest media establishment working to inform the American people of the truly subversive nature of what they are doing, and thus, no negative consequences politically from going down this despicable road.
  • Third, because they can never admit that the 2016 presidential election was legitimate. Think about it: They and their corrupt media toadies have spent three entire years now promoting first the Trump/Russia myth and then the Trump/Ukraine myth in their frenzied effort to overturn the results of that election. If they were to stop now, it would be an admission that the entire pretense that enabled them to attain their House majority in the 2018 election was a false one.
  • Fourth, because pursuing permanent impeachment supports their new narrative in which they are already making the case that the 2020 presidential election will be illegitimate. Having a President win re-election while “under investigation” is key to that narrative.
  • Fifth, because they know that Ruth Bader Ginsburg is in terrible health, making it very likely there will be an opening on the Supreme Court at some point next year. Making impeachment permanent enables them to argue that President Trump can’t fill that seat while he’s under “suspicion.”

I suspect it is possible that Ginsburg, who is 85 and has survived several bouts with lung and pancreatic cancer, or liberal justice Stephen Breyer, who is 81, may have even informed Pelosi and others that she or he plans to retire at the end of the current Supreme Court session, which would help to explain the urgency behind the Democrats’ efforts to keep impeachment alive.

Now, if you are thinking that none of the reasons listed above are legitimate reasons for the constitutional abomination Pelosi is perpetrating on our society, I agree. But we have to remember that everything Pelosi, Schumer or any Democrat leader does has a single goal in mind: The acquisition and maintenance of political power. That’s it.

Considerations such as what might be best for the country never enters the minds of these demented and depraved people. Once you realize that reality and accept it, everything they do makes perfect, if evil, sense.

That is all.

The FISA Court Puts the FBI on a Kabuki Theater Action Plan

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

WINNING, soooooo much WINNING. It truly never gets old. – Once again, every stock market index – the S&P 500, the NASDAQ and the Dow Jones Industrial average – closed at record high levels on Tuesday. That’s the third straight day for the Dow and the fourth straight for the S&P and NASDAQ. The Trump economy is booming along so strongly now that the recession promoters at the Washington Post gave up the ghost over the weekend and sadly admitted that we are not headed into an economic contraction anytime soon.

Also in the realm of WINNING, the Democrats in the House, cowed over the growing public pushback over their impeachment sham, passed a spending bill that includes $1.4 billion in funding for the border wall and does not include restrictions on the President’s ability to move funds from Defense and other departments to keep the wall’s building moving ahead. That, friends, is WINNING on a grand scale.

Another WINNING feature of this particular budget bill is what is not in it: Proposed language that would have provided billions in de facto bailout money for Tesla and General Motors in the form of expanded subsidies for their overpriced Electric Vehicle manufacturing. Those two companies had already used up their allotment of subsidies under the program, and will now be forced to actually compete with Ford, Nissan, Toyota and other EV sellers on equal footing.  Imagine that.

All in all, it was a great day for America because President Trump was WINNING and the Democrats, their corporate clients and their media toadies were LOSING. Funny how that works.

Then there was the not-so-good stuff, typified by the joke of a “public order” issued by the chief judge of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court [FISC], Rosemary M. Collyer.

Collyer, who it must be assumed just awoke from a two-year slumber, issued what the corrupt news media touted as a “stern rebuke” of the FBI for all of its lying to the FISC detailed in the recently-release report by DOJ IG Michael Horowitz. As reported by Fox News:

“The FBI’s handling of the Carter Page applications, as portrayed in the [Office of Inspector General] report, was antithetical to the heightened duty of candor described above,” Collyer wrote in her four-page order. “The frequency with which representations made by FBI personnel turned out to be unsupported or contradicted by information in their possession, and with which they withheld information detrimental to their case, calls into question whether information contained in other FBI applications is reliable.”

Oh, golly, oh, goodness, how will FBI Director Christopher Wray survive such strongly-worded sentences and phrases? Well, as the FBI itself told America in its response to the Judge’s letter, he will do what he does best: Respond to it with standard bureaucratic BS:

“As [FBI Director Christopher Wray] has stated, the inspector general’s report describes conduct by certain FBI employees that is unacceptable and unrepresentative of the FBI as an institution,” the bureau responded in a statement Tuesday night. “The director has ordered more than 40 corrective steps to address the report’s recommendations, including some improvements beyond those recommended by the IG.”

Many of you dear readers no doubt worked or still work in the corporate world as I did for many years. What Judge Collyer did yesterday was basically what corporate management and HR do with badly-performing employees: She put the FBI on an Action Plan. She slapped the dumpster fire law enforcement agency on its collective wrist and demanded that it produce a detailed plan for how it is going to improve performance in the future. And if it doesn’t improve, why, there might, maybe, be – gasp! – consequences.

Folks, Christopher Wray eats this kind of crap up. The man is nothing but your classic federal do-nothing bureaucrat, a useless placeholder whose only real skill is leveraging federal regulations and employment laws to his advantage.

As the FBI’s statement notes, he is so skilled at this game that he anticipated Collyer’s pathetic letter in advance and had already publicly announced his response to her action plan demand. Thus, he covered his butt before she covered hers.

This is nothing more than classic DC Swamp Kabuki Theater. Think about it: Everything finally, at long last detailed in Horowitz’s report has been out there in the public domain for more than two years now. Much of it had been detailed over and over again here at the Campaign Update.

Yet, in all that time, and despite all of the FBI’s mendacity in seeking its multiple FISA warrants to spy on members of the Trump Campaign, Trump Transition Team and Trump Administration having long been public information, neither Collyer nor any other FISC judge ever uttered a peep of public protest. It was only after the Horowitz Report had finally been issued that she suddenly decided to issue her “rebuke” of the FBI and its myriad bad actors.

In a just world, every existing FISA warrant would be rescinded pending further review, and a special prosecutor would be appointed to investigate every other warrant the FBI sought from the Court during James Comey’s time as FBI Director. But this is not a just world, so Collyer’s meaningless action plan, which was so predicrable that Wray anticipated and responded to it in advance, will be the last act we see in this particular Kabuki performance.

Everybody’s butt is now covered, every bureaucrat is now protected, and the myriad Americans whose civil rights have been violated by the raging dumpster fire that is the FBI will have no justice delivered.

That is an outrage.

That is all.

On This Thanksgiving, Be Thankful For All Of This WINNING

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

Given that today’s Thanksgiving, I figured it would be a good time to lecture you all on all the many things I am thankful for today. – Not that you needed it – everybody else is doing the same thing, after all, including the doofuses who host the morning news show on our local TV stations here in the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex. They are weird people, but I’m thankful for them because they do provide periodic comic relief. Like when they try to predict the weather here in North Texas more than 4-5 hours in advance. It’s honestly hilarious.

Anyway, here are a bunch of things I am thankful for on this cold and rainy Thanksgiving morning:

Family – Yeah, I know, this is obligatory, right? But I truly do have a wonderful family, filled with brothers and sisters and kids and grandkids and the most wonderful, patient, kind and understanding wife who ever lived. I even have in-laws who I really love, one of whom kept me up too late drinking really good wine last night. So, I blame my hangover on family. And what good is family without hangovers?

The Trump Economy – Every major stock market index closed at a record high level on Wednesday, the 5th of the last 8 trading days this has happened.

Adam Schiff – Seriously, what would life be like without ol’ Bug-eyes? Talk about comic relief, this guy’s better than every sitcom on television, other than The Neighborhood, which I watch religiously. Cedric the Entertainer cracks me up, and that guy who plays Dave is epic. So I’m thankful for them, too.

But seriously, Adam Schiff is a better Bond villain than any of the real Bond villains. Everything this guy does repulses anyone with functioning synapses in their cranial cavities. He is the perfect poster child for today’s Democrat Party: Corrupt, inept, corrupt, stupid, corrupt, evil and corrupt. What more could you ask for?

Nancy Pelosi’s Dentures – Have you ever seen a more rebellious mouth appliance than those things? Really and truly, this woman is worth about $200 million, and she can’t afford a set of fake teeth that won’t come loose and try to jump out of her mouth every time she holds a press conference? I salute you, Nancy Pelosi’s Dentures! You are awesome!

America’s oil and gas industry – Think about it: Where would you be today without America’s oil and gas industry? Let me answer that question for you:  You’d be sitting in a cold, damp home with no way to cook your food, no lights, no television, no cell phone, no toothpaste, no makeup for the women-folk, no bottled water, no refrigerated food, maybe no food at all given that most plant fertilizers are manufactured using natural gas (did you know that?), and no way to get anywhere else unless you owned a horse and buggy.

In short, without America’s magnificent, glorious oil and natural gas industry you would be living a 19th century existence filled with deprivation and hardship. So quit bitching about the price for regular unleaded anytime it goes up 2 cents. Be thankful you have the blessing of being able to pay for this miracle that made modern society possible.

The Dallas Cowboys and Texas Longhorns – I’m thankful to my favorite pro and college football teams for demonstrating earlier than usual that they are pitiful mediocrities who are going nowhere yet again, because it frees up all sorts of time for me to focus on other, more important things. Those rose bushes really needed trimming. That’s far preferable to the Dodgers, my favorite baseball team, who took me all the way into the playoffs before folding up like a cheap suit in the NLDS this season. Talk about a time sink.

WINNING. So much WINNING. – Yes, even though all of my sports obsessions are miserable losers, I am so thankful this Thanksgiving for President Donald John Trump and all the incessant WINNING he brings to all of our lives, whether we appreciate it or not.

In addition to the roaring economy and resultant booming stock market he has delivered, this is a President with an actual sense of humor. The best part of that sense of humor is that he employs it each and every day in efforts to infuriate leftist nitwits like Adam Schiff and San Fran Nan and their corrupt toadies in our fake news media. Like yesterday, when he tweeted out that meme with his face superimposed over Rocky’s body, knowing that it would throw every leftist/media toady in the country into a snit fit, and sure enough, that’s exactly what happened.

I keep thinking that all these leftist nitwits will at some point figure out that President Trump is the greatest Twitter troller of all-time, but no. They’re just not capable. They can’t help themselves, and I’m thankful for that, too.

Why? Because it’s WINNING, and I love all this WINNING.

And turkey, and dressing, and sweet potatoes and broccoli and rice casserole and pecan pie. I’m thankful for those things, too. And I’m fixing to go eat all that stuff.

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving, folks. I’m thankful for all of you, too.

That is all.

March 25 Was the BEST MONDAY EVER for Trump and his Supporters

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

Why did Monday ever have to end?  – Monday must have felt like a birthday, Christmas and Festivus all rolled up into one for President Donald Trump and the White House staff, as the good news started early in the morning and continued to pour in all day long.

Throughout the day, of course, they all got to watch as a parade of news-faking cretins flittered across their TV screens, vainly trying to concoct a rationalization for why they have been lying to their viewers and fans for more than two years as they promoted the Democrats’ “Russia Collusion” fantasy play. From Morning Joe and Mika and Donny Deutsch, to the despicable hack Carl Bernstein, to the contemptible Andrew Napolitano, to the seditious – no, make that treasonous – John Brennan, to the terminally unfunny and odious Stephen Colbert, with dozens of other circus clowns and cranks sprinkled liberally in between, the cascade of disgraced nitwits, dupes and just plain old liars was glorious.

As if that weren’t cause enough for joy in Trump Land, shortly after noon came the news that the Creepy Porn Lawyer had been indicted and arrested on charges of extortion and mail fraud. Yes, friends, the guy who everyone at MSNBC and CNN spent half of 2018 touting as a legitimate contender for the Democrats’ presidential nomination in 2020 due solely to the fact that he represented a porn star has been caught red-handed, as the Justice Department released damning telephone transcripts that show him explicitly blackmailing Nike for $25 million. Thus, a major tormentor of the President appears likely to soon be headed for the pokey.

But it got even better. It turns out that the Creepy Porn Lawyer’s alleged partner in this extortion plot is none other than attorney and – until yesterday – paid CNN “legal analyst” Mark Geragos. Yes, that Mark Geragos, the selfsame Mark Geragos whose most prominent current client happens to be …wait for it…oh, you have to wait for this one…JUSSIE SMOLLETT!!!!!

Yes, friends and neighbors, that would be the very same actor Jussie Smollett who is currently facing prison time of his own for creating an outrageous hoax in an effort to smear the President and everyone who supports him. That Jussie Smollett.

I swear I do not make this stuff up. The greatest, most imaginative fiction writer in world history could not in a million years make this stuff up.

But things just kept getting better and better all day long, as a seemingly endless stream of positive news stories for the President and his 2020 re-election ambitions came across the wire.  Here are some examples:

  • In Texas, all House Democrats boycotted a committee hearing on a bill that would …wait for it…OUTLAW INFATICIDE. Yeah, that’s not gonna play well with Texas voters next year.
  • Two-term New Mexico Senator Tom Udall announced he would not stand for re-election in 2020, opening up the seat for a strong GOP challenge.
  • Trump appeals court nominee Bridget Bade received a favorable cloture vote in the senate, paving the way for her to become the President’s 37th addition to the federal appellate courts, an all-time record for a first term president.
  • Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell announced the scheduling of a Senate vote on Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s hair-brained, economy-destroying “Green New Deal”, which Democrats had been desperate to avoid since it will force them to go on-record.
  • Education Secretary Betsy DeVoss announced that DOE has opened investigations into eight universities tied to the still-unfolding college admissions and bribery scandal.
  • While the Democrat Party remains mired in a slipperly-slope towards rank anti-Semitism, President Trump held a White House ceremony with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in which he formally recognized the Golan Heights as part of Israel.
  • To cap the day off, the Pentagon announced that it has formally authorized the transfer $1 billion to kick-start the building of the southern border wall.

It was, for this President and his supporters, the Best Monday Ever.

Let’s hope today is the Best Tuesday Ever. Might as well start a new trend.

That is all.

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.
