Today’s Campaign Update
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)
This was not the plan for the fake news media. Oh, no – not even close. Part I – President Donald Trump held another of his raucous rallies in South Carolina on Monday, this one in support of the re-election of Governor Henry McMaster, and things just did not go well, not well at all for CNN’s poor little Jim Acosta.
First, well before the evening’s program got underway, Acosta was, ahem, ‘accosted’ by someone’s great-grandmother, an older lady who decided it would be fun to hang out near the CNN position waaaayyyyy at the back of the hall and repeatedly shout “get him out! get him out!” You know, the kind of behavior that CNN loves to award copious amounts of air time whenever it comes from anyone on the political left.
Things just got worse for the little fake reporter when he went on-air for a live shot at his seditious network. As Acosta went into his standard, tiresome anti-Trump screed, the crowd erupted with chants of “Go home, Jim!” and “CNN go home!” Then, to top things off, one enterprising guy got close enough to get his “CNN Sucks” sign into the shot, and remained in the shot on live CNN feed for a good 15 seconds.
Of course, since these were Trump supporters and not professional leftwing agitators, this was all in good fun. No one was threatened, no one was assaulted, no one was harmed, and many in the crowd actually came over to Acosta and other members of the press to take selfies and get autographs. Because these people are Americans who love America, not a bunch of paid agitators.
But, well, CNN does suck, and Acosta is one of the main reasons why.
This was not the plan for the fake news media. Oh, no – not even close. Part II –Hey, check out this tweet from ABC News and the film embedded in it:
You know what that is? That is President Donald J. Trump forcing the unwilling fake journalists at ABC to accidentally cover what is actually happening every hour of every day along our country’s border with Mexico. That report actually aired on ABC’s prime time newscast, something the network would have never dreamed of airing just two weeks ago.
Here are other long-ignored border-related issues that the fake news media has accidentally been forced to cover in its efforts to support its Democrat wards on this fake “don’t separate the families!” issue:
- Child trafficking and human smuggling;
- Sex slavery, often involving young children;
- Mexican gang warfare, often taking place north of the border;
- How deeply these gangs, including MS13, have infiltrated our nation’s cities;
- How woefully under-staffed our Border Patrol is;
- The fact that 4 out of 5 of the kids in these holding centers are unaccompanied minors;
This list of border issues long ignored by the fake news media because they reflect badly on their political wards could go on and on. If you are wondering why this issue is polling horribly for the Democrats, this is why: Millions of Americans who stupidly depend on the major TV networks and CNN for their “news” have learned about the issues above for the first time over the past two weeks.
And then, of course, there’s Maxine Waters. The Braying Buffoon has gone and gotten herself in a pickle with her clear incitements to violence over the weekend. The ugly film of her repugnant screams has done irreparable damage to the increasingly depraved and despicable Democrat Party, and will no doubt provide dozens of Republican congressional candidates with fodder for extremely effective campaign ads in the Fall.
How bad is it for the Dems, you ask? It’s so bad that both Chuck Schumer and San Fran Nan felt the need to repudiate Waters’ actions on Monday. Schumer did so directly with a speech on the Senate floor, and Pelosi did it indirectly in a tweet, because that’s the kind of political coward she truly is.
Trust me on this, folks: Neither Schumer nor Pelosi would have said a damn thing about the Mad Maxine incitements unless they had received some extremely negative polling and/or focus grouping information. Those are the only things that motivate any Democrat politician to do anything. Well, other than money.
Before any of you goes and gives these two slimeballs any credit at all for doing the right thing here, you need to remember that they and their silence are the main reasons why we have arrived at this point to begin with. These two and every other leader in the Democrat Party have remained disgracefully silent through 20 months of riots, violent protests, public assaults on Trump supporters, public assaults on Trump officials, spying on Trump and his people by the FBI and a trumped-up Special Counsel witch hunt, all of which have combined to create the current toxic atmosphere in our public discourse.
Had either of these two clowns, or Hillary Clinton or Barack Obama or even Bernie Sanders had the personal integrity to speak out and condemn the rising violence and anti-social behavior on the political left since Election Day 2016, things would have immediately calmed down. But they all – every one of them – bought into the “Resistance” and adopted it as their Party’s sole platform for the 2018 elections.
They all remained silent because, hey, this was the plan. It’s been the plan all along, and save for the situations in which an idiotic rant by the Braying Buffoon costs them in the polls, it will remain the plan going forward for one simple reason: The Democrat Party is bankrupt of ideas.
Think about it: Everything the Democrat Party has stood for during the Obama Administration has been revealed to have been a lie. The “new normal” of less than 2% economic growth? A lie. If you like your plan you can keep your plan? A lie. The Paris Climate Accords? A pathetic lie. You can’t just wave a magic wand and make those manufacturing jobs reappear? A pathetic lie. It’s impossible to root out ISIS? A disgraceful lie. We can’t drill our way to energy security? A laughable lie. The Iran deal? A despicable lie. You can’t talk to North Korea and get anything out of it? A disgusting lie. Open borders are good for the country? A nation-ending lie.
These are desperate people now, because nothing they do works. President Trump’s polling numbers have actually risen over the past two weeks amid all the fake hysteria about the border. They are utterly shocked by this and have no idea what to do to change the dynamic.
Thus, they will do what they’ve done for the last 20 months: Gradually try to drop this subject and move on to another faked-up scandal. Because that really is all they got.
Just another day in November is going to be a Red Wave wipeout America.
