Sunday News Roundup: Joe Biden is not President-Elect Yet; Not by a Long Shot

Shortly after every corrupt national media outlet declared within 5 minutes of one another on Saturday that Joe Biden had “won” the 2020 presidential election – even though literally nothing had changed in the vote counting since Friday – Jake Tapper proclaimed that “our long national nightmare is over,” parrotting Gerald Ford’s statement as he assumed the presidency from Richard Nixon in 1974.

Of course, Tapper was speaking for the entirety of our corrupt national media monolith – Fox News included – which feels that way at the end of every Republican presidency. They’ve all spent the last four years doing nothing but tearing President Donald Trump down and pushing hoaxes designed to get rid of him, and they’ve spent the entirety of this year supporting Democrat efforts to intentionally destroy our economy and commit massive vote fraud as a part of that unending campaign to get the Bad Orange Man out of the White House.

So, now they think they’ve succeeded and they’re all positively giddy. Just one problem here: The news media has no authority to declare anyone to be the president of the United States. That is a decision for the various state legislatures, the Electoral College and the courts to make.

At this moment in time, it is instructive to remember that the news media in 1948 spent two days calling Thomas Dewey the “president-elect”. Do any of you remember the Dewey Administration? No? Good, that means you paid attention in your history class.

It is also instructive to remember at this moment in time that, in November and December, 2000, the media monolith spent 37 days referring to Al Gore as the “president-elect.” Then, the court-ordered recount of the vote in Florida happened, and that all changed.

We already know that we are going to have a recount of votes in Georgia, and probably a canvassing of the vote as well, which is even more likely to uncover fraud. The real President’s legal team has also filed various lawsuits in Georgia demanding an audit of the votes and documenting an array of instances of outright fraud in that state.

With the gap closing rapidly between the two candidates in Arizona, the same scenario is almost certain to take place there, and Nevada and Wisconsin are also likely locations for recounts and canvassing and full audits of the votes and the “glitchy” Chinese computer software that magically transformed all the Trump votes to Biden votes in one Michigan county that is – surprise! – used in all of these states.

Pennsylvania is even better: The state courts there literally just changed state law by judicial fiat in order to allow vote “counters” there to count ballots that arrived three full days after election day as a means of facilitating the massive fraud everyone knows is taking place in Philadelphia. The U.S. Supreme Court ordered the state’s election officials to stop counting on Friday and segregate all of those ballots, an order that was apparently simply ignored by those officials. Rudy Giuliani also noted that, in Philadelphia alone, more than 600,000 post-election day ballots were counted without a single Republican being allowed to observe the process, an outrageous violation of U.S. election law.

Add to that all the myriad instances of blatant fraud that have been captured on video, and the massive vote-dumps numbering 6,300 or 23,000 or 138,000, all of which were magically cast for Joe Biden, and you have tons of easily-proved, massive vote fraud for the Trump lawyers to present to courts in these states. Equally important, the Trump lawyers have begun the process of presenting all of this proof of fraud to leaders in the state legislatures in these states, and guess which party has majorities of both houses of the legislatures in Wisconsin, Georgia, Michigan and Pennsylvania? The GOP.

So, none of this is over, not by a long shot. The corrupt media monolith decided on Saturday to support Biden by falsely declaring him to be the president-elect in order to create that belief in the public at-large because they know that will increase pressure on the legislators and courts to refuse to do the right thing and demand a full investigation into all the obvious fraud.

The media attempted to do the same thing on Gore’s behalf in 2000, and failed thanks to honest judges who refused to bend to public pressure, and to Florida’s then-Secretary of State, Katherine Harris, who refused to certify the results until a formal recount had taken place.

We are about to find out if honest judges and stalwart public servants like Harris are still the norm in our country 20 years later.

I have been warning you since April that the media was in the process of attempting to brainwash us to blandly accept exactly what is taking place right now: A blatantly stolen presidential election. If we do that, then we will deserve the horrible fate that awaits us.

That is all.

Now the Climate Scammers are Coming for Your Homes

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

Seriously, how much WINNING can one nation take?  – Believe it or not, the NASDAQ did not close at a new record high on Friday, falling slightly to break an 11-trading day winning streak. But the S&P 500 and Dow Jones Industrials did manage new record closings, making Friday yet another banner day for investors. The WINNING truly never grows old.

The Enviro-Marxists are now coming for your homes. – As we come to the end of 2019, it is only appropriate that the radical leftist climate change lobby signals its clear intent to deprive you of yet another basic human liberty: The right to own your own home.

After all, 2019 was the year in which the insane Green New Deal introduced by the insane Alexandria Ocasio Cortez proposed to deny you the right to travel by air, own your own automobile, enjoy affordable power and home heating bills and eat beef – due to all the cow farts, you know. It was the year in which, during the summer, the climate alarmists began to mount an organized, global effort to deprive those who can afford them of any vacations that involve long-haul flights. It was the year that a George Soros-funded New York State Attorney General’s office attempted to convince a court to hold ExxonMobil responsible for knowing about “climate change” a full quarter century before anyone actually knew about it, only to be laughed out of the room by the state’s own supreme court.

So, at the end of a year such as this one, you had to figure it was inevitable that the Enviro-Marxist left would end it with yet another assault on free enterprise and Americans’ civil liberties.  Hey, it’s what these people do.

Writing at the communist publication The Nation, some urban planner from…wait for it….California – because of course this nitwit is from California – named Kian Goh is now proposing that it would be just a peachy idea for the government to end the basic American right to own private property in general, and single-family homes specifically. Because, climate change, or something.

You can tell just from reading the title of Mr. Goh’s piece – “California’s Fires Prove the American Dream Is Flammable” – that it’s going to be a smorgasbord of Enviro-Marxist fright tactics wedded to openly Marxist policy proposals, and Goh does not disappoint, oh, no. All you really need to know about the piece, in fact, is contained in the subhead that reads, “If we want to keep cities safe in the face of climate change, we need to seriously question the ideal of private homeownership.”

Oh. Sounds legit, right? Well, it does if you are a hopelessly ignorant nitwit who wants to the government to dictate every step you take every day of your life, which sadly describes roughly 40% of the U.S. population today, and about 90% of the employees in the nation’s corrupt news media.

I’m old enough to remember when leftist Democrats pretended to be all for individual rights to home ownership. That was waaaayyyyyyyyyyyyy back in the…wait for it … 1990s when Bill Clinton was forcing Fannie May and Freddie Mac to give mortgage loans to pretty much anyone who wanted one, even to those who manifestly could not afford them. Because, fairness, or something. That, by the way, was also the administration of Vice President Al Gore, the scam artist who has profited perhaps more than anyone on earth from pushing the climate scam during the 21st century.

But that’s all changed now and Mr. Goh is the new left’s poster child. Goh’s basic thesis is to use the issue of California wildfires as a tool to attack private housing. He is especially against building individual homes in rural areas, basically because they’re, er, flammable. Oh, yeah, and he’s also opposed to – you’ll never guess – “cheap energy”, i.e., affordable utility bills:

The growth of urban regions in the second half of the 20th century has been dominated by economic development, aspirations of home ownership, and belief in the importance of private property. Cities and towns have expanded in increasingly disperse fashion, fueled by cheap energy.

His proposed solution is, of course, less individual freedom, replaced by government command-and-control, i.e., Marxism:

To engage with these challenges, we need to do more than upgrade the powerlines or stage a public takeover of the utility companies. We need to rethink the ideologies that govern how we plan and build our homes.

Next, he plays the race card in a transparent attempt to curry favor with minorities:

In and around so many cities, new building technologies, racist lending practices, systemic criminalization of the poor and people of color, and uneven patterns of “creative destruction”—that is, cycles of investment and disinvestment across city centers and suburbs—favored one kind of residential development: single-family houses for those deemed qualified, which typically meant white, middle-class families.

So predictable. So tiresome. So utterly Alinskyite.

The next step in this paint-by-the-numbers leftist climate alarm piece is of course to blame the fires on “climate change” even though the frequency and intensity of U.S. forest fires has in fact fallen since all the climate alarmism as a stalking horse for Marxism began in the late 1980s:

The valorizing of homeownership and property rights results not only in increased exposure to climate-change-fueled fires, but also in our inadequate responses to them.

Then he goes on to signal the next step to come in this Enviro-Marxist campaign to deprive Americans of their rights: The assault on individual rights to own homes on the coast:

Discussions have surged over the last two years about the need for coastal communities to retreat further inland as they face rising sea levels—a seemingly more imminent threat. How should we broach the more uncertain risks of fire?

This dude has your future all planned out for you, you just don’t know it yet.

And here comes the money paragraph, the paragraph in which Goh very predictably exposes himself as a supporter of The Commie, Bernie Sanders, who has chosen to enlist Alexandria Ocasio Cortez and her Green New Deal as his campaign’s mascot:

There are other options, in theory: Rental housing serves many cities around the world well, although we should be wary about perpetuating the power of landlords in this country without delinking ownership from wealth creation. There has been resurgent interest in government-planned and -built public housing, including recent legislation proposed by Ilhan OmarAlexandria Ocasio-Cortez, and Bernie Sanders that would shore up and invigorate the federal system. The Green New Deal invokes prior eras of government intervention, lending itself to revitalized thinking about the social value of public goods.

The Climate Scam always has been and always will be a stalking horse for the global implementation of Marxist-style socialism. Every suggested “solution” ever offered by any adherent to Climate Change religious dogma has, without exception, involved a Soviet-style command-and-control central government depriving individuals of their rights and prosperity.

The right to own personal property was enshrined by the founders of this country because they understood that it was a crucial tool in maintaining personal freedom. As such, it should surprise no one that the climate scammers would seek to deprive Americans of that key right, along with their liberty and pursuit of happiness.

They are telling you everything they want to do to you, folks – all you have to do is read and listen.

That is all.

Why Elizabeth Warren is now the Clear Favorite in the Democrat Race

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

Well, President Donald Trump has yet another new “challenger.” – Complete with blaring headlines at the increasingly leftwing Drudge Report, South Carolina Congressman and former Governor Mark Sanford has decided to jump into the race. He joins former Massachusetts Governor William Weld and former Congressman Joe Not-the-Eagles-Singer Walsh as a kind of NeverTrump cordon of sacrificial lambs who I guess will try to raise money and run in the various caucuses and primaries.

All three of these guys are your basic circus clowns. Weld is an ultra-liberal Democrat in a Brooks Brothers suit who does stuff like this because he can’t find any legitimate work. Walsh is a talk radio host who no longer has a talk radio program. Sanford is the guy who ran out on his family with his Argentinian girlfriend for two weeks while serving as Governor, and then claimed to have been “hiking the Appalachian Trail” when he re-surfaced.

These are the guys who NeverTrump puppet masters like Bill Kristol and Mitt Romney believe are fit to wrest the GOP 2020 nomination away from a sitting President with an extraordinary record of success. You might do better running Larry, Curly and Moe. At least they’d be entertaining.

Fauxcahontas Rising. – Despite the ongoing best efforts by our fake national news media to cover for his increasingly obvious loss of his faculties, the nation’s Unfrozen Caveman Senator continues his slow fade in the polling data.

The latest bit of distressing news for Creepy Uncle Joe comes from the CBS News Battleground poll of early primary/caucus states. This poll attempts to measure voter attitudes in the 17 states that will take us through Super Tuesday next March 3. Those 17 states include Iowa, New Hampshire, Nevada and South Carolina early on, and then conclude with both California and Texas in March.

Thus, it isn’t surprising that both Kamala Harris and Irish Bob O’Rourke land among the top 6 Democrats in overall support in these early states, given the massive presence of their respective home states. It is a little surprising how poorly those two fare overall, with Harris coming in at 8% support and O’Rourke barely registering at 4%.

But it’s the top of the rankings that really matters, and coming in at #1 in terms of overall voter support is not Joe Biden, but Fauxcahontas, the biggest fraud in the race. Which should surprise no one, given the historic Democrat voter preference for lifelong frauds like John Kerry, Al Gore, Barack Obama and Bill and Hillary Clinton to be the standard bearer for their party.

Little Mouth Always Running comes in at 26% support among the registered Democrats surveyed in these 17 early states, with Creepy Uncle Joe close behind (as he always seems to be with the nearest woman) at 25%. The Commie registers at 19% and Mayor Pete makes a cute little political sandwich in between Harris and O’Rourke, landing at 6%.

Those percentages are a little misleading, though, because the delegate count is what would really matter. CBS projects those numbers in this table:

delegates-overall.jpg

So, the Unfrozen Caveman Senator retains a slight edge in that measure, though far short of the 748 he would need to constitute a pace to win a first-ballot majority at the DNC Convention. And looky there: Amy Klobuchar jumps into the top 6 to replace Preacher Pete, who is nowhere to be seen.

In keeping with its campaign to prop up the Serial Gaffer, CBS leads its write-up on the poll by saying, “This poll tells a story of Elizabeth Warren rising. But not Joe Biden falling.” Which is, of course, abject nonsense.

Let’s go back to April, when Biden announced his candidacy. Then, he started this race with a huge, 20+ point lead in pretty much every poll, registering at or above the 40% level in all of them. In this new poll, just five months later, he’s down to 25% in the 17 states that will essentially decide the race for all intents and purposes, and now trailing a woman who has spent her entire adult life pretending to be someone she is not for professional and financial gain.

True, he is still doing slightly better in the national polls, where he’s averaging about 29% support in the RealClearPolitics average. And the lead he still owns is due strictly to two factors: Very strong support among African-Americans, who don’t much care for all the radical socialists in the race, and this perception that he’s the most electable candidate in a general election against President Trump.

That’s all well and good for now, but here’s Biden’s real problem: The Democrat voter base has become ultra-radicalized, and is not likely to ultimately settle for an elderly white guy (Biden will be closing in on 78 when the Democrat convention comes around next summer) who barely knows where he is most days. Those voters are also not going to settle for an old white guy who still goes around bragging about his old segregationist pals in the 1970s Senate, and who still tells off-color jokes that demean women, Blacks and gays.

Take a look at that RealClearPolitics average again, and add up the percentage of voters who are supporting the radical candidates like Warren, The Commie, Harris, Buttigieg, Yang and O’Rourke: Their support comes in right at 50% to Biden’s 29%. That’s where the heart of the Democrat Party really lies.

Throughout the 2015/2016 GOP nomination contest, I repeatedly advised readers and clients to add up the percentage of primary voters who weighed in their support on behalf of the party’s non-conventional candidates. I included Trump, Ted Cruz, Ben Carson, Carly Fiorina and Rand Paul in that category. It was absolutely stunning how consistently their total support came in right at 63% throughout 2015 and through the early primaries. As Carson, Fiorina and Paul left the race, basically all of their support base migrated right over to Trump or Cruz, and they ended up the two finalists in the race (I don’t count Kasich, who stuck around but had basically no real support).

That was where the heart of the GOP voter base was in 2016, and the radical left is where the heart of the Democrat voter base is for the 2020 race. As O’Rourke, Yang and Buttigieg drop out of the race, and The Commie and Harris fall away later on, their voters are going to coalesce not around Biden, but around Fauxcahontas. This is pretty much baked into the cake at this point. Elizabeth Warren is really the odds-on favorite to go into next year’s convention with the highest number of delegates as of today. The big question is whether or not she will be able to the majority required to win on the first ballot.

If you think I’m crazy and still believe that Biden is the big favorite because that’s what all the “experts” are telling you, take a look at history: Since 1968, the early favorite to win a contested Democrat nominating race has only prevailed one time, in 2000, when Al Gore, a sitting vice president, became the nominee.

All the momentum in this race today is with Warren, and it’s pretty hard to see anything that will stop it. Democrat voters love a good fraud, and there is no more accomplished, blatant fraud in the race than Fauxcahontas.

That is all.

Now We Know Why The DNC Did Not Want That Climate Change Debate

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

There’s a reason why the Democrat National Committee desperately avoided demands from fringe candidates like Washington State Gov. Jay Inslee to schedule a debate focused solely on “climate change,” and you saw that reason on CNN last night. – The simple fact of the matter is that, whether the problem is real or not, it inevitably highlights just what a bunch of nutjobs the Party is offering to the voters in this cycle.

Andrew Yang wants the government to force you to buy electric vehicles, even though the EV industry has no capability whatsoever of meeting such a demand, and forcing such a change would do nothing to address the alleged problem in any event.

Elizabeth Warren wants to ban the building of new buildings starting in 2028. No really, she does.

The Commie wants to throw everyone in the oil, gas, and coal industries in prison. Because science.

Irish Bob O’Rourke wants to wave his arms around crazily and propose to spend $5 trillion on a bunch of stuff that will do nothing to address the alleged issue, and he wants to cuss about it.

Kamala Harris wants to do this, but not this, and that, but not that, borrow this idea from Warren and that idea from Mayor Pete and another idea from AOC, and then take the other sides of those issues all at the same time. And then she wants to get into a fight with the Commie about all of it. Which is why she has fallen into Irish Bob O’Rourke territory in the latest round of polls.

Joe Biden has no clue what he wants to do other than to spend a bunch of money on stuff that doesn’t matter. So, standard operating procedure for the nation’s Unfrozen Caveman Senator, who is exactly who Irish Bob is going to become 35 years from now.

All of them claim hurricanes have become more frequent – they haven’t. All of them claim hurricanes have become stronger – they haven’t. All of them want you to believe Dorian is the most powerful storm of all-time – it isn’t.

All of them want to blot the American landscape with millions of 500-ft. windmills that require 8 acres of land apiece and gigantic solar farms and decimate our bird populations in order to provide very high-priced energy to about 2 percent of us so that they can claim to be “doing something” about a problem none of them has any real knowledge of.

The fact of the matter is that “climate change” is a global socialist political religion. Every proposal to address “climate change” inevitably becomes a top-down, command-and-control socialist-model “solution” that would do nothing to make the climate better but do everything to command and control the lives of everyday people. Every proposal would be incredibly destructive to the national and global economy. Every proposal would effectively work to keep the 2 billion or so human beings living in squalor in 3rd world countries today living in squalor in 3rd world countries forever.

This is the dogma, the commandments of this global religion. See, the nasty secret of this religion is that its followers believe economic growth is actually evil and must be stopped. People living in squalor produce less carbon emissions than people who have decent standards of living, after all. That at least is an actual fact.

Thus, the religion’s dogma demands that any and all “solutions” have the impact of destroying economic growth and human prosperity. This is real, folks. This is what Bill McKibben, Al Gore and other Cardinals in this global church write in their books and say in their speeches. You don’t have to make this stuff up. Who could?

Such a debate could only take place on CNN, as it did last night, or some other Democrat propaganda fake news outlet to ensure that no difficult questions would ever possibly be asked. Because these politicians have no good answers to any difficult questions, such as, if “global warming” is such an emergency, why is it that NOAA can find no warming in the continental U.S. over the last 14 years?

Or how about, if the U.S. is the root of the global problem – it isn’t – explain how it is that the U.S. by far leads the world in reducing its carbon emissions, which have now fallen to levels not seen since 1985? And if oil and natural gas are such a problem, how is it that that fall in U.S. carbon emissions is mainly attributable to the increased use of natural gas in our power generation sector and in reductions in gas-powered car emissions?

And if getting back into the Paris Accords is the answer, why is it that those accords do nothing to force the real causes of rising carbon emissions – Europe, China and India – to affect reductions similar to those the U.S. has achieved?

And if command-and-control regulatory actions and confiscations are the answer, how is it that the U.S. has achieved these dramatic carbon reductions and also produced the cleanest water and air in any developed nation without resorting to such measures?

Last night’s climate change dog and pony show on CNN was global socialist nutjobbery and nitwittery at its finest. And the hilarious thing about it is that the far-left anti-development activists and lunatic politicians like AOC will all be out on their Twitter feeds this morning bashing the candidates for only resorting to half-measures and not going far enough.

All of this hooplah is taking place around an issue that always ranks at or near the very bottom when pollsters ask Americans about the issues they are really concerned about.

That, friends, is why the DNC did not want to travel down this road to begin with. Who can blame them?

That is all.

Why Joe Biden Won’t be the Nominee

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

People keep telling me that I’m really going out on a limb with my all-but-guarantee that Joe Biden will not be the Democrat nominee in 2020. The truth is that that is the safest prediction I’ve made about this race.

The history of presidential politics is littered with the rotting carcasses of early favorites in contested presidential nominating battles who ended up being left behind when the actual convention rolled around.

Remember 1972 Democrat nominee Edmund Muskie? Yeah, neither do I. Well, I sort of remember Edmund Muskie, who was the party establishment’s favorite as the campaign season began, but Democrat voter base, radicalized by the hippie movement moving into adulthood and the early reports of the Watergate scandal, were looking for a much more radical alternative that year. Ultimately, the party presented closet Marxist George McGovern to the country, and an electoral slaughter of epic proportions ensued, despite the media’s best efforts to destroy Richard Nixon.

Sound familiar?

What about 1976 Democrat nominee Morris Udall, the early polling leader and establishment favorite? Or nominee Birch Bayh, who won the Iowa Caucuses? Remember them? No? Well, it turned out that Democrat voters that year weren’t in the mood to nominate some old DC swamp creature, which you are going to soon discover is a very common theme in this essay. Instead, they wanted a fresh face, and ended up saddling the country with Jimmy Carter, who at the time was the freshest face we’d ever seen.

Yeah, that didn’t work out well, did it?

Remember when early polls told us that Ted Kennedy was going to beat Carter for the nomination in 1980 after Carter’s disastrous term in office? Remember when that didn’t happen, either?

Guess who the early polling leader for the nomination in the 1984 race was? Remember how Gary Hart won that year’s nomination? No? Neither does anyone else. That year, the now-ageing hippies passed the party’s baton to old swamp  creature Walter Mondale, and the result was the largest electoral landslide loss in American history.

Ok, what about 1988 Democrat nominee Mario Cuomo? Remember him? After a raft of polls in mid-1987 showed Cuomo would be a big leader in the nominating battle, party leaders tried to recruit him to get into the race. But Cuomo, knowing the scrutiny that would bring into his shady background, refused to take up the baton.

Well, what about 1988 nominee Gary Hart, who again led all the polls once Cuomo refused to run? No? Hart might actually have prevailed in the race that year had he not dared the media to “follow me around” after allegations arose that he was having an affair. For once, the media actually did its job where a Democrat was concerned, and photos of Hart cavorting on a boat with Donna Rice were soon made public. So, we ended up with Michael Dukakis and another electoral landslide instead.

Then there’s 1992 Democrat nominee Paul Tsongas, or 1992 Democrat nominee Jerry Brown, or 1992 Democrat nominee Bob Kerrey, all of whom were leaders in early polling in the race. But then this guy Bill Clinton played the saxophone on the Johnny Carson Show, and shallow Democrat voters had their man!

In 2000, it was Al Gore all the way as the Democrat voter longed to give the country a third Clinton term. That didn’t happen, either.

Then there’s 2004 Democrat nominee John Edwards. Yet another early polling leader flame-out due to Gary Hart-like circumstances. He was succeeded by 2004 Democrat nominee Howard Dean, who surged into a polling lead late in 2003. But he came up a crapper with a third-place finish in Iowa, and the nomination ended up going to the disastrous John Kerry.

Finally, I give you 2008 Democrat nominee Hillary Clinton, the overwhelming leader in every early poll in the race, and the woman who eventually…flamed completely out after Barack Hussein Obama his own self caught fire.

Democrat voters are fickle, folks. In every cycle, the party’s leaders always try to push a favorite candidate, and that favored candidate is usually rejected. The lone exceptions to this dynamic in modern times have been Walter Mondale, Al Gore and Hillary Clinton, all loooooooooosers. In 2016, the party’s leaders went so far as to actually rig the primaries in Clinton’s favor, and Obama and his evil minions did everything they could to rig the general election in her favor, and she still lost.

The Fainting Felon’s attempt to saddle the nation with a third Obama term was a miserable failure, and now here is Joe Biden, trying to execute the exact same failed strategy four years later. But Biden’s trying to do it before a party voter base that has been radicalized to the point of insanity, and the primary voting is going to be dominated by the most radicalized among them.

Every nominating battle has its own unique set of dynamics, of course, and the party bosses have set the process up this time to encourage a hung convention at which they will ultimately get to choose the nominee. Maybe that will work out for them, but if it does, history tells us that they will choose a loser.

But back to the point about Joe Biden: History also tells us that the early leader in the polls almost never ends up winning the nomination. I’m not out on a limb at all on that one, and I think I’ll stick to it.

That is all.

Climate Alarmists Can’t Do the Maths

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

Ok, look: If we’re going to have all of this incessant climate alarmism going on, can’t we at least get the numbers straight? All of this constant throwing out seemingly random numbers about when the world’s going to burn up, freeze, flood or just plain end is getting unbelievably tiresome.

Why bring this up now? Yesterday, Senator from the #ClimateScam Ed Markey told a sheep-filled audience that “Within 15 years, Mar-a-Lago’s going to be underwater for over 100 days a year, it’s going to be Mar-a-Lagoon, not Mar-a-Lago.” Clever, right? Ok, not so much.

But here’s the thing about this whole “15 years” deal: It doesn’t match anything all the other climate alarmists are saying.

The day before Markey pontificated about President Trump’s Florida property, fake Hispanic climate alarmist Irish Bob O’Rourke had this to say:

Oh. So it’s really just 10 years, huh?

But that really doesn’t conform with anything all the other alarmists are saying, either, does it?

Nope.

Last week, a Harvard scientist pronounced that we have only 3 years to save the arctic ice cap: “The chance that there will be any permanent ice left in the Arctic after 2022 is essentially zero,” Anderson said.

In January, as she rolled out her hysterically absurd “Green New Deal”, Climate Simpleton Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez told us that the number is actually 12 years: ‘The world is gonna end in 12 years if we don’t address climate change,” she said during a congressional hearing.

That doesn’t even get us to all the hilariously-wrong predictions of doom coming in X number of years from the Climate Alarmist past. Way back in 1988, Ted Danson told a congressional committee – whose membership included then-senator Al Gore – that we had just 10 years to save the oceans. Yet here we sit, 31 years later, and the oceans somehow still live.

Apparently taking his cues from Danson, Gore released his awful film, “An Inconvenient Truth”, in 2005. According to Gore, at that time we had less than a decade before the polar ice caps melted. Yet, there they still sit, 14 years later.

In 1970, the granddaddy of all the Climate Alarmists, the perpetually wrong Paul Ehrlich, told us we were headed into another ice age, and that half the world’s population was gonna starve by the end of the 20th century. The world’s population has steadily grown ever since, and a tiny fraction of people suffer from hunger today than did 49 years ago.

Now, the world’s not going to end in 10 years, or 12 years or 15 years or 100 years, and all of these Climate Alarmist hucksters are well aware of that. They’re just in it for the politics, using their fake “green” stances as excuses to push their socialist ideology.

But one request: Can’t we at least just all agree on a number? I don’t really even care which number it is – just pick one and stick with it. It would make you all far more credible, if only slightly less annoying.

Thanks.

That is all.

With “Moderate” Democrats Like These, Who Needs Radicals?

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

Why, that’s so moderate! – Tim Ryan became the 2,342nd Democrat to announce his presidential candidacy this week, and the fake news media universally declared him to be a “moderate” among the field of socialists, Leninists, Stalinists, Marxists and outright commies who were already in the race.

How do we know Mr. Ryan, a Democrat congressman from Ohio, is “moderate”? Why, just look at his position on abortion: He’s all in favor of murdering children right up to the point at which they’re about to be born into this world, but unlike all the other ghouls already in the race, he’s against killing them after they’re already breathing free air. In reality, Mr. Ryan is every bit as batsh*t crazy as any of the other lunatics in the race, but he has a nice, tidy haircut, speaks fairly softly, isn’t out there on TV every day lying about having inside information that President Donald Trump is a spy for the Russkies, and as I say, has yet to announce his support of outright infanticide.

That makes him a “moderate” among today’s Democrat Party. My goodness.

And speaking of “moderate” Democrats… – Ok, just kidding.  I’m talking about our very favorite demented Democrat Socialist freak, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, or “AOC” for short.

AOC has apparently been taking “blackspeak” lessons from Hillary Clinton, and it got her into yet another controversy yesterday after she gave a speech to fake Rev. Al Sharpton’s National Action Network conference.

But first, a reminder of the context here: Who could ever forget this clip of the Pantsuit Princess giving a talk in Selma, Alabama, employing her impression of what Democrat racists like to refer to as “southern negro dialect”:

The insulting, condescending pandering to the mostly-black audience in the room that day literally bleeds through the screen. The Coughing Crook’s political mentor, segregationist Arkansas Sen. J. William Fulbright, would have been so proud.

As always, AOC chooses her own role models unwisely (first Stalin and Pol Pot, now the Fainting Felon), and she decided it would be just a peachy idea to engage in a little HRC condescension of her own when speaking to Sharpton’s audience.  The similarity is spooky:

To be clear, her words are fine: All of the lines of work she talks about there amount to very noble work that needs to be done, and I’ve done most of them myself in my younger days. But why try to say it all in a fake dialect? What’s the point of that, other than patronizing condescension and contempt for the audience?

Naturally, Twitter went wild in response to the release of that video, mocking the freshman congresswoman for descending even further into the depths of Democrat depravity than she had already gone before, which frankly had seemed almost impossible for her to do. And very predictably – as is her habit – AOC responded to the mocking by trying to paint herself as some sort of victim:

The problem is, no one was talking about “her” voice or her “distinct linguistic culture” – had she stuck to her own very distinctive accent, no one would’ve said boo about it. She was being slammed for trying to appropriate an entire class of people’s own accent and dialect, and failing miserably in doing so.

It’s demeaning to the audience, it’s insulting and yes, it is racist. Yet, there is a certain class of Democrat politician – usually, the phoniest among them – who think it’s a perfectly fine thing for them to do in front of largely-black audiences. YouTube is littered with videos of prominent, heinously phony Democrats like Barack Obama and Al Gore, in addition to the Grasping Grifter, employing this insulting tactic.

Now, AOC takes her place among that millieu. She’s learning fast what it takes to become a real rising star in the Democrat Party today.

That is all.

It’s Cold, and That’s Global Warming Too

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

Um, why not pick somebody who actually won? – The Democrat Party’s focus on losers continued on Tuesday, as San Fran Nan and Chuckie Schumer agreed to assign the task of reciting the Party’s fake response to next week’s State of the Union Address to…wait for it…failed Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams.

In accepting the role, Abrams becomes the first African American woman to do the honors on this thankless task. The only wonder here is, how come Nan and Chuck did not give the role to someone who actually won a race this year?

Why not, for example, assign the task to Texas Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee, who actually won her election in November, and see if she could stay on message for more than 25 words before she started talking about how we landed men on Mars, or how “today we have two Vietnams, side by side, North and South, exchanging and working”?  Or maybe she could talk about how “anything my staff does in my office is pursuant to congressional rules,” including that female staffer she allegedly fired for lodging a sexual harassment complaint.  That would be fun.

Oh, but let’s not forgot: Sheila has to park her butt in that aisle seat in the House chamber at 7:30 a.m. so she can get her face on television shaking the President’s hand as he enters to give his speech. That’s been her tradition for going on three decades now and we can’t interrupt it.

So, hey, give the talking points written by someone else to the lady who lost her election by 58,000 votes despite massive, blatant voter fraud in her favor. She’s the perfect metaphor for today’s Democrat Party, after all.

In case you hadn’t noticed, it’s cold, and that’s Global Warming, too. – Ok, well, they call it “Climate Change” now, but it’s the same nonsense packaged inside a different, more inclusive moniker.  It’s only “Global Warming” in the summer, when it’s hot. But now it’s cold as a well digger’s…well you know the rest … in a snow storm over 75% of the country, so that’s “Climate Change” because, you know, it has never been so hellishly cold before. Well, never except for all those millions of other times it was hellishly cold.

And there’s the best thing:  It’s all your fault, because science, and that means you have to become a socialist, because science too.  Get it?

What a racket. The greatest scam in the history of mankind. The best response to it is to turn up your heaters and use more gas. Might as well get comfortable, because you’re going to get blamed for it all anyway.

Or, you could fly your private jet 150,000 miles a year. – Well, you could if you’re Elon Musk, anyway. You all remember Elon Musk, right? You know, the pot-smoking CEO of Tesla, the electric car that’s gonna save the world from Global Warm…er, Climate Change?

Yeah, even the leftist cranks at the Washington Post are getting tired of his act. Yesterday the Post put up a story slamming Musk for not only flying 150,000 miles on his jet-fuel guzzling, CO2-emitting private jet in 2018, but for often having his pilot fly it between various airports in Los Angeles so it would be closer to wherever Musk happened to be working on any particular day. But it gets even better:

“In September, a few days after calling fossil fuels ‘the dumbest experiment in human history,’ his plane burned thousands of pounds of jet fuel flying 300 miles from L.A. to Oakland so Musk could view a competitive video-gaming event.”

Julie Vitkovskaya, a projects editor at the Post, put up this fascinating tweet chronicling Musk’s private jet usage in map form:

The Post of course concludes its story with a shot at corporate America, saying that “Musk is far from the only corporate leader to depend on the speed, flexibility and privacy of flying across the world on a private plane … But even compared to his peers, Musk’s travel stands out”.

But that misses the point, probably intentionally. The truth is that, when compared to his true “peer group” – that of fellow climate alarmists like Al Gore, Tom Steyer, Bill Gates and Leonardo DiCaprio – Musk’s private jet usage and carbon footprint do not stand out at all. These frauds are the biggest hypocrites on the planet and, if anything, Musk is likely a piker among that peer group when it comes to emitting carbon.

But remember, folks: Musk and his fellow Cardinals in the Global Church of Climate Change are not the problem, you are.

Repent, sinners, and give up your SUVs for a new Tesla! For verily Al Gore sayeth that it is easier for a private jet to pass through the eye of a needle than for a Suburban driver to enter the gates of Gaia.

AOC is Not Stupid – She’s Just “Educated”

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

Don’t blame her, she’s just like 74% of other Democrats. – The pathetically misinformed, abject ignoramus Alexandria Ocasio Cortez told an interviewer on Monday that  “The world is gonna end in 12 years if we don’t address climate change and your biggest issue is how are we gonna pay for it?”

Yes, friends, it seems our planet has an expiration date now, and AOC has determined it to be the year 2031. So, to hell with saving for retirement or paying those bills, let’s just all go out to Vegas and blow it all on slot machines and craps tables between now and then.

Seriously, the most fascinating part of that statement is the phrase “how are we gonna pay for it?” Her dimwitted interviewer lacked the presence of mind to ask her to explain what, exactly, would we be paying for between now and then, and how rapidly we’d have to ‘pay for it’ in order to stop the dreaded boogeyman “Climate Change” from ending our world in a dozen years.  But wouldn’t it have been fun to have this particular socialist ignoramus’s answer on video so we could make fun of it for the next dozen years, and the dozen years after that?

I mean, do we have to, like, pay for it all now, Alex?  Fork over that 30 trillion dollars we don’t have to do what – build gigantic vacuum cleaners to suck all of that evil carbon dioxide out of the air? Can we wait for a few years and then “pay for it”, maybe just put a down payment on it now? And what do we do when all of that CO2 has vanished down the nozzles of those gigantic machines and all the trees and plants die and everybody’s starving? Do we fork over another 30 trillion or so we don’t have to put it all back out again? Or is starving everyone part of the socialist play, too? One can only imagine what might have come out of her never-closed mouth had the right question been asked.

Not even the alarmists at the UN’s International Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) claim to have discovered the world’s expiration date.  The most they’re willing to say is that we might have 3 degrees of warming between now and 2100.  The Pope of the Church of Climate Change his own self, Al Gore, keeps saying “we only have 10 years left!!!” to address Climate Change’s ravages on our planet, but he’s been saying that every year for the last 30 years, so it’s always hard to figure out exactly what he means at any given time and temperature.

But now the new darling of the Democrat left says we only have a dozen years to live, and hey, 74% of all of our country’s self-described Democrats agree and are willing to vote for her for president, if only she were old enough to run.  Yes, friends, I swear I’m not making this stuff up:

“Exclusive: A new Axios/SurveyMonkey poll finds that 74% of Democrats (and people who lean Dem) would consider voting for Ocasio-Cortez if she were old enough to run for president. (She’s 29; you have to be at least 35.)”

How does one even respond to that finding? What would an actual sentient human being even say to a friend who came up to them and said he or she would just love to vote for possibly the most ignorant public figure on the entire planet if she were on the presidential ballot? Is it the appeal of voting for someone whose mind is apparently just a blank slate through which false information flows like a rancid river?

We should not blame AOC for any of this, by the way.  She is simply the personification of the state of education in America today. If you follow her Twitter feed, it becomes quickly obvious that she is not dimwitted, not what you would call a “stupid” person. She’s actually pretty quick-witted and funny when she wants to be.

No, what she is is hopelessly ignorant.  She says all sorts of things that in and of themselves are incredibly wrong and stupid, but that’s only because she is just regurgitating what she was taught in school. She obviously managed to obtain a college degree without learning a single actual true fact, but has survived in life and managed to get elected to congress based on her wits and innate intelligence. That’s actually pretty impressive when you think about it.

Like everyone else, AOC is the product of her upbringing and education. Her parents didn’t fail her – her upbringing was apparently very solid since she is poised, articulate, confident and carries herself very well in public.

What failed AOC is what has failed so many millions of Americans over the decades (apparently that includes 74% of self-described Democrats) and that is our education system. Like so many other people we all run into and deal with in our daily lives, AOC is not stupid, she just doesn’t know anything that’s actually true.

It’s not what AOC knows that’s the problem, it’s what she thinks she knows that just isn’t so. Of course, that just makes her a pretty typical Democrat member of congress, doesn’t it?

Wait, who? – Hey, y’all, Pete Buttigieg is running for president!  Isn’t that fantastic?  Oh, happy day! Buttieg 2020!!!!! Wait, B-u-t-t-i-g-i-e-g 2020!!!!!! Yeah, that’s right.  Woooo-hoooo!!!!!!!!

Uh, ok, who exactly is Pete Buttigieg? Why, he’s the 37 year-old mayor of South Bend, Indiana. At least if the Washington Post is to be believed, and yes, I know that’s pretty much a crap shoot in and of itself these days.

Uh, ok, so how do you pronounce his last name?  Hell, I don’t know – maybe AOC can tell you.

*sigh*

The Church of Climate Change Adds Another Arrow to Trump’s Quiver

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

News your fake news media will pretty much ignore. –  Erik Solheim, the fake Chief of the UN’s fake environment division, resigned this week after it was revealed that he had racked up travel expenses totaling $488,518 in a span of 668 days.  The UK Guardian reports that Solheim was on the road, traveling on carbon-dioxide-spewing planes, trains and automobiles, for fully 529 of those 668 days, which has to be some sort of record.

The role of the fake agency Solheim led, “UN Environment”, is to highlight “green issues and sustainability.” Obviously, Solheim’s boss decided that his travel bills were neither green nor sustainable.

Although, I have to wonder what the big deal is here.  After all, Solheim’s travel charges pale in comparison to other leaders of the world’s largest leftist religion, i.e. the Climate Scam.

The Pope of the Church of Climate Change, Al Gore, travels all over the world in a gas-guzzling, CO2-spewing private jet, and lives in a massive home whose carbon footprint is roughly equal to that of Rhode Island. The most visible Cardinal of that false Church, actor Leonardo DiCaprio, lives and flies in similar luxury, and also owns a gasoline-powered yacht that is similar in size to a Chinese aircraft carrier. Gore and DiCaprio each rack up higher bills traveling the world in most weeks than Solheim did in his infamous 668 days, and nobody’s firing them.

And what about all these various “Climate” conferences this religious cult holds in various parts of the world 10-12 times every year? These conferences see thousands of cultists, along with the Church’s royalty, clogging air traffic and overwhelming local airport capacities with their private jets and tying up 100% of the assets of gas-and-diesel-fueled limousine services for weeks at a time.

My point is not to defend Solheim for his profligacy – paid in large part by U.S. taxpayers, by the way – but to note just how ordinary he really is when taken in context of the Climate Scam movement writ large. In a rather perverse sense, maybe that’s why the U.S. news media is studiously ignoring his story.

Hey, why are we a part of the U.N. again? – Perhaps Solheim’s story, pedestrian as it seems in the context of the Climate Scam, is relevant in another way: It does provide just one more reason for President Donald Trump (I still never tire of typing those three glorious words) to question the wisdom of the U.S. remaining a member of this despicable and depraved collection of despots, thugs and grifters from around the world. Solheim is one of the grifters, and the U.N. employs thousands of them.

The President regularly questions the utility of the U.S. remaining a part of the international body, whose main mission in recent years has been to issue resolutions condemning America’s most important ally in the Middle East, Israel.  The most recent example of this came on November 16, when the question was raised once again in the wake of the U.N.’s annual vote on a resolution condemning Israel’s settlements in the Golan Heights.

Donald Trump is going to be President for at least two more years, and most likely for another six. The despots, thugs and grifters at the U.N. just keep poking this increasingly impatient bear, and do so at their own risk.

Ocasio Cortez Watch:

 

Why do liberals hate women, Part 6,563. – In a move as predictable as the sun rising in the East, the LA County District Attorney’s office refused to bring charges against The Creepy Porn Lawyer for his alleged assault on his girlfriend a couple of weeks ago:

Thus, after more than a year of screaming “we must believe all women in these domestic abuse accusations!!!!” and the Creepy Porn Lawyer himself attempting to derail a Supreme Court nominee with false charges of rape, liberals in power demonstrate one more time that their rhetoric where protecting abused women is concerned is utterly meaningless.

Ladies, wake up.  The Democrat Party of the United States is at war with you. It just elected a woman-abusing thug to become Attorney General in Minnesota. One of its judges just ruled a law banning genital mutilation of females to be unconstitutional (think about that). That Party has been completely co-opted by radical Islamism, trans-genderism and the woman-and-child-abusing Hollywood culture.

You continue voting for its candidates at your own risk. How many more examples do you need?

That is all.

Vote Faking in Florida and News Faking at CNN: Some Things Never Change

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

So, how about that Creepy Porn Lawyer, huh? –  When he was representing a porn star and suing President Donald Trump, Michael Avenatti was invited to appear on CNN no fewer than 108 separate times.  Since being arrested Tuesday night for allegedly beating his spouse Tuesday evening, CNN hasn’t found it possible to invite the Creepy Porn Lawyer to appear on its fake news TV platform, nor has it managed to file a report on the event.

That little fat, bald guy who is one of their on-air personalities, and whose name I can never remember and don’t care to look up, did manage to include a few sentences about the arrest in his newsletter which is read only by demented rich white women in Manhattan’s Upper East Side, but other than that, radio silence from the news fakers at CNN.  Because that is who they are.

But teacher, the dog ate my vote count! – At a press conference on Thursday morning, Broward County elections officials, i.e, vote-stealing frauds, assured the assembled press that they would have their machine recount completed well before the 3:00 p.m. ET deadline.  But then something funny happened:  They discovered that the machine recount had added to Republican Senatorial candidate Rick Scott’s winning margin by more than 1,000 votes.

Guess what happened?  Broward’s machine recount came in 2 minutes after the deadline, which means, after all of this rigmarole, the official vote total will be what Broward originally claimed it was.

Meanwhile, over in Palm Beach County, the vote-stealing Democrat frauds didn’t even bother to really try to turn in their machine recount, and just started their manual recount, which was ordered in the Senate race by Florida’s Secretary of State, early instead.

The net result of this is that Republican Ron DeSantis is the winner in the governor’s race, although that outcome will not be certified by the SoS until next Tuesday.  So get ready for Democrat loser Andrew Gillum, who still refuses to concede, to file some sort of lawsuit in the meantime.

Rick Scott will have to wait until at least Saturday to claim his victory over detestable Bill Nelson, who will probably also file some sort of lawsuit once the hand recount is completed.

We should not expect the Democrats to let this go until they have completely exhausted every legal angle their evil minds can concoct for the simple reason that there is no downside for them in keeping this alive.  When you have 98% of the nation’s news media faking the news on your behalf and doing nothing but reciting the daily talking points you provide to them, there is no price to be paid for doing everything you can to destroy the nation’s system of free elections, which is what the Democrats have been working on doing for the last 18 years now.

So the madness will continue, most likely until the Supreme Court forces it to end.

One America News Network makes a play for Fox’s fleeing audience. – Back to CNN, you should also expect that fake news network to pursue an appeal on its lawsuit against Donald Trump for his revocation of preening performance artist Jim Acosta’s White House press badge should they receive a negative decision at the District Court level.

The idiots now running CNN’s competitor, Fox News, made the decision on Wednesday to jump in on CNN’s side in the case.  This utterly insane and indefensible decision very predictably caused a huge backlash among Fox News fans, many of whom will now be looking for another news channel to serve as their safe haven from the fake news media.

Enter OANN, the news operation that has found a small but dedicated and growing audience since its inception a few years ago. Obviously smelling an opportunity, management at OANN decided to jump into the lawsuit as well, only by filing an amicus brief supporting the White House’s side of the argument.

Here are a couple of extremely correct arguments in OANN’s brief:

“Acosta does not have a protectible First Amendment interest or right in the context of this dispute,” OANN argued, adding that “while this narcissistic approach may serve Plaintiff’s self-interests as entertainers or media figures and the network that profits therefrom, they do not serve the interests of the forum.”

and…

Acosta “has hindered our free press from functioning effectively during White House briefings,” OANN argued in a court filing, calling Acosta’s behavior “disruptive.”

Awesome.  They should establish a GoFundMe account to pay for the legal fees.  If they do, I’m giving.

CNN probably will get a correctly adverse decision here, given that the judge in the case is not an Obama appointee. The judge in fact is a Trump appointee, Timothy J. Kelly, who was confirmed to his current job in the District of Columbia by the U.S. Senate on September 8, 2017. Judges for these cases are assigned based on a random, lottery-type system, and CNN had no doubt prayed the name of an Obama judge would come up in its case, which would have given them a great chance of prevailing. The drawing of a non-Obama judge means the case will be decided on the law rather than the principles of Saul Alinsky and Democrat talking points, so CNN is no doubt already preparing its appeal to the DC Circuit, whose membership is majority Obama/Clinton appointees.

Of course, CNN’s big problem is that, should they pursue their laughable claim to the bitter end, the bitter end will come a year or two from now in front of the U.S. Supreme Court and its 5-4 Constitutionalist majority. The arguments that a) the White House has no right to enforce standards of behavior on preening fake journalists during press events, and b) Jim Acosta somehow has a constitutional right to a White House press badge so he can continue to disrupt those press events as he pursues his performance art career are going to be tough sells to John Roberts and Sam Alito and Clarence Thomas and Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh.

Judge Kelly is expected to issue his decision this morning, so we will know where this is going soon. If he rules in CNN’s favor, then the White House should simply disband the White House press corps, because it would then be in the completely intolerable position of having no authority to enforce any norms of behavior on what is nothing more than a collection of agents for the Democrat Party. That is simply not something that can be allowed to exist within this White House.

But if CNN loses, expect an appeal because, like the Democrats in Florida, there is no downside for this fake news network in doing so. It helps their ratings, and hey, you can’t harm a reputation that’s already been destroyed anyway.

That is all.

Is NBC News Faker Than CNN? It Was On Monday.

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Seems like there is a lesson to be learned in here somewhere. –  So, lessee here…the pro-Trump Republican gubernatorial candidate in Arizona, Doug Ducey, easily won his race by more than 150,000 votes.  Meanwhile, the Trump-avoiding GOP senatorial candidate, Martha McSally, who basically campaigned as the second coming of despicable RINO Jeff Flake, lost her race by about 48,000 votes at the latest count.

Hmmmm.  How do we explain that?  Think maybe there’s a cause and effect kind of thing going on there?  Nah, must be something else, because your fake news media tells you so.

Speaking of lessons to be learned, it seems the French government has a hard time doing that. – Fresh off of taking a series of cheap shots at President Donald Trump and the United States over these past four days, French President Emmanuel Macron saw his public approval ratings take another nose dive. The most recent poll shows that just 26% of French citizens approve of their juvenile President, while 71% disapprove.

President Trump must have seen that poll, given that he issued this tweet directed at Macron early this morning:

It’s good advice – are France and the rest of Europe capable of learning from the hard lessons of the past?  A review of the history of the 20th century is not at all encouraging.

Hey, hey, hey!  We have a narrative to stick to here, buddy! – NASA scientist Martin Mlynczak of NASA’s Langley Research Center expects the earth to go into a period of record…wait for it…COLD temperatures in the coming months and years thanks to a lack of solar sun spot activity.  The lack of sun spots, i.e., solar storms, in recent years is causing the sun to go into a prolonged solar minimum cycle during which the heat it emits is lower than normal.

“Right now, it is very low indeed … 10 times smaller than we see during more active phases of the solar cycle,” says Mlynczak.  “If current trends continue, it could soon set a Space Age record for cold. We’re not there quite yet, but it could happen in a matter of months.”  Yikes.

Somewhere, Al Gore is sweating anyway.

Lying is what she does for a living, after all. – Longtime Democrat fake journalist hack Andrea Mitchell repeatedly told her paltry audience on MSNBC yesterday that Broward County Elections Supervisor Brenda Snipes is…wait for it… a Republican!  I kid you not.

The problem is, of course, she isn’t.  Yes, she was put into her office by doofus ex-Florida Governor Jeb! Bush, who is sort of a Republican, but Jeb! appointed lots of Democrats while Governor there because he wanted to be all bi-partisan and stuff, like any other good RINO would have done.

But Ms. Snipes is a registered Democrat today, and has always been a registered Democrat.  We could be generous here and speculate that Mitchell was simply mistaken yesterday, but it is far more likely that she, like everyone else in our fake news media, was actually reading from a set of talking points provided to her by the Democratic National Committee.

Oh, and speaking of Andrea Mitchell, she also had this to say on Twitter yesterday:

Yes, friends, NBC News, the same organization that allowed Matt Lauer to prey on young interns and aspiring reporters for years while his co-hosts joked about it on-air, the same organization that killed Ronan Farrow’s Harvey Weinstein expose’ before he got it published by The New Yorker, has won an award for its reporting on sexual harassment.  You seriously just can’t make this stuff up.

While we’re on the subject of NBC News… – Jonathan Allen published a fawning puff piece at NBCnews.com on Democrat gubernatorial candidate Andrew Gillum yesterday under this headline:  “Gillum Bets His Future on Defending Floridians’ Right To Vote,” which is possibly the most dishonest headline in the history of headlines.

Let’s be honest about what Gillum is defending here, ok?  No one, not Rick Scott, not Ron DeSantis, not Donald Trump, not anyone is attempting to deny any American citizen the right to cast a LEGAL vote, in Florida or anywhere else. Gillum is actually betting his future on trying to force the counting of fraudulent votes, illegal votes cast by non-citizens, dead people and people who never existed.  He’s betting his future on trying to force the counting of boxes of ballots mysteriously “found” after election day in trunks of cars, elementary school kitchens and other unlikely places, and ballots that witnesses testify were in fact filled out by Democrat election workers in Broward and Palm Beach Counties.

He is defending the chronic practice by elections officials in both of those counties to refuse to comply with Florida’s election laws, despite the fact that the state’s other 65 counties consistently manage to do so.  He is defending the refusal by Snipes and Palm Beach County Elections Supervisor Susan Bucher (Also a Democrat, despite what Andrea Mitchell might try to tell you) to comply with multiple court orders. He is defending the most obvious, blatant attempt to steal an election since Al Gore tried to steal a presidential election in these same two counties back in 2000. That is what Gillum is “defending” here, nothing more.

Luckily for the nation, Gillum and Democrat Senator Bill Nelson are going to fail, but NBC and the rest of our fake news media will just keep on lying about it all anyway.  Because that is who they are and it is what they do.

That is all.

Hillary Clinton: That Party Guest Who Just Won’t Shut Up and Leave

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

It’s not because you’re a woman.  It’s because you’re so incredibly tiresome. – The Pantsuit Princess, dressed in her favorite Dr. Evil attire, complained to an audience that she is tired of being told by fellow Democrats to stop running around the world blaming everyone but herself for her loss in the 2016 election.  The Fainting Felon whined that “no one ever told a man (who’d lost a presidential election) to go away.”  She then cited Al Gore, John Kerry, John McCain and Mitt Romney as examples.

Of course, as with literally every other word that escapes from the Coughing Crook’s lips in public, this latest in such a long, long list of complaints is an outright lie.  Of the four examples she cites, there were all manner of Democrats at the time telling the incessantly complaining and lying Al Gore and John Kerry to just go away and shut up already after they, too, went around the country whining about how mean ol’ George W. Bush had done all sorts of things to “steal” the 2000 and 2004 elections from them.  Gore was especially resented by Democrats who just wanted to move on for his refusal to just. shut. UP. before he decided to shift gears and go get rich from mounting his global warming scam.

As for McCain and Romney, well, they’re Republicans (ok, well, McCain is sort of a Republican, anyway), and when Republicans lose a presidential election, they accept their defeat and move on, so yes, no one had to tell them to go away.  Even Richard Nixon, after having the 1960 election stolen from him by John F. Kennedy’s mob associates, decided to just accept the result and stay quiet about it for the good of the country.

But of course, with the Grasping Grifter, the good of the country never comes to mind.  It’s all about her.  Everything is and always has been all about her.

In the end, Hillary is like that drunk guy at the party who just won’t go home, still sitting on your sofa at 3:00 in the morning asking for another beer and telling annoying stories you’ve heard a thousand times before.  You know, the guy you have to escort out your front door and shove into the Uber you called for him so he won’t kill himself trying to drive home.  That guy.

Just as that guy never goes away voluntarily, no one should expect the Whining Wino’s worldwide whining tour to end anytime soon.

If you want to own a Tesla, you probably better go get one soon. – The shaky electric car maker Tesla announced on Friday that it is having to recall almost half of the automobiles it has manufactured in its entire history due to corroding bolts that threaten the loss of power steering.

This new recall of more than 123,000 of the company’s Model S sedans comes amid ongoing issues that have prevented the production of more than a handful of the company’s new, more compact Model 3 sedans, and CEO Elon Musk’s struggles to raise more money to keep his chronically unprofitable company afloat.  This is a company whose business model only “works” when it is propped up by massive taxpayer subsidies and a stellar PR campaign consisting of a never-ending series of bold promises for the future.  Even with billions of dollars worth of those subsidies, Tesla has only managed to turn a “profit” in two calendar quarters during its entire existence, and the constant churning of unfulfilled promises suffers from the law of diminishing returns over time.

Tesla’s stock has lost 1/3rd of its value in recent weeks, and that selloff promises to continue next week after the latest recall announcement, which came after markets closed.  Barring an influx of new, highly-risky private equity, the company seems on the verge of running out of cash in the near future, and may have to resort to issuing a round of new stock, which would diminish the value of current shares even further.

Musk has repeatedly proven to be very adept at finding the money necessary to keep his company afloat in the near term, and will likely find a way to keep it going this time as well.  But in the longer term, Tesla sure looks like a proverbial house of cards that appears destined to at some point collapse under the weight of its fundamental inability to produce cars at a competitive price.  You know, like every other auto maker on the face of the earth must do in order to survive.

Just another day in the Pantsuit Princes won’t go away willingly America.

That is all.

Sunday Scattershooting While Wondering Whatever Happened to That Delightful Frederica Wilson?

Today’s Campaign Update

  • Sunday’s Required Reading – The Daily Caller has a great piece this morning by Michael Bastach, chronicling many of the innumerable “the end is near” predictions made over the last 30 years by the frauds in the Global Warming alarmist community.  It’s a great read, and a good reminder of just how wrong all these projections have been.  Of course, the point of the Global Warming scam is not to be right, it is to frighten the public into accepting collectivist political policies as the only “solution” to a problem that most likely doesn’t exist.  Take the 10 minutes necessary to read this piece – you’ll be glad you did, and smarter, too.
  • Speaking of collectivists running scams on the public, the globalists who still infest the U.S. State Department like the cockroaches in a 30 year-old single-wide have been caught attempting to influence Hungary’s elections.  The U.S. will pour $700,000 into that country’s media in an effort to defeat Hungarian PM Victor Orban, who is opposed to the open borders policies that are in the process of destroying the native cultures in Germany, France and other European Union countries.  So, to be clear, the same globalists who have been screaming for a year about Russia’s alleged efforts to influence the 2016 U.S. elections have no problem at all doing it to other countries.  But then, we already knew that, didn’t we?
  • Hey, let’s tie the Global Warming scam to the sexual harassment frenzy while we’re at it – John Phillips, writing in the Orange County Register, wonders aloud how it is that Al Gore, the Capo di tutti capi of all Global Warming scammers, has managed to escape scrutiny in the ongoing sexual assault feeding frenzy?  It’s a great question, given that Mr. Gore has been publicly accused several times of improper sexual behavior with women.  That’s a real ‘inconvenient truth’ if there ever was one, huh?
  • Perhaps, as Professor of Sexual Violence Wendy Murphy detailed back in 2010, Honest Al gets a pass because he’s just sooooo darn green, an affliction that also infests about 99% of the national news media at this point.  But it does seem odd that, even as so many Bill Clinton media shills are finding it convenient to finally condemn him after all these years, Mr. Gore continues to just skate by, flying under the radar, as it were.  It hardly seems fair.
  • Getting tired of all this winning yet? – Don Surber celebrates the possibility that President Donald Trump (I never get tired of typing those words) may be able to appoint twice as many judges to the federal bench by the end of 2018 than Barack Obama did during his entire eight years in office.  We can thank the thankfully gone Harry Reid and his idiotic decision to kill the use of the filibuster in the judicial confirmation process, along with a long-awaited plan to expand the federal judiciary for this happy potential reality.
  • Or maybe it’s because of the simple fact that sexual harassment and abuse has been running rampant in Hollywood and the liberal national culture at large for far too long, and people got fed up with it. – Columnist David Brooks, who pretends to be a ‘conservative’ for the NYTimes and PBS, told his PBS co-host Judy Woodruff on Friday that he believes the wave of sexual abuse allegations is because of a public reaction to…wait for it…DONALD TRUMP.  Holy cow.
  • Here’s a direct quote:   “I think the reaction to Trump is part of the deal here. And we’ve talked about Trump maybe polluting our national culture, but it could be the reaction to Trump is also making us hypersensitive and making us want to correct the national culture. And so, you could be a — see a reaction to — the Trump wave, I think, has lowered norms and standards, but a lot of people would say, ‘No, we’re not happy with this, we’re going to raise norms and standards.’ ”  Only a liberal pretending to be a conservative could engage in such twisted leaps of logic.
  • Finally, Former FBI Director James Comey, who has recently begun using his Twitter account all too frequently, issued the following Tweet on Saturday:  “‘Our Liberty depends on freedom of the press, and that cannot be limited without being lost.’ – Thomas Jefferson, Jan. 28, 1786.”  For the record, James Comey was FBI Director when Fox News reporter James Rosen was wire-tapped by that corrupt agency.  Just sayin’.

Just another day in frauds, frauds, everywhere America.

That is all.

Hillary Continues Her Nora Desmond Act With Jane Pauley as Facilitator

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

  • It’s all your fault, too, Jane. – The Most Corrupt Woman in America sat down for an interview with Jane Pauley on Sunday’s CBS Morning News program, and boy was this a hard-hitting slugfest!  Ok, just kidding.  Ms. Pauley is of course just another fake journalist who openly rooted for Ms. Clinton during the 2016 election campaign.  Plus, the parent company of CBS also owns the company that is publishing Hillary’s latest bit of fiction, so the chances of any real journalism taking place in the interview were roughly equal to the chances of the San Francisco Giants to win this year’s World Series.
  • Question #1:  How much should all Americans hate all Americans for causing you to lose? – No wonder, then, that the interview began with Ms. Pauley literally impaling her self at the altar of Hillary worship with this question:  “So, I’m wondering.  How are you?”  It all went downhill from there, with Ms. Pauley even jumping in to help Her Corruptness expand on her hateful points.  At one point, after Clinton had claimed that Donald Trump had played to the “millions of people who were upset about gains that were made by others,” good ol’ Jane piped in with “…millions of white people…”, to which Senora Corrupcion quickly agreed.
  • If only this could go on forever.  Oh, wait… – Otherwise, the interview amounted to just another opportunity for The Corrupt Woman to whine, act out, point fingers, slander the current President of the United States and basically blame everyone in the known universe – except, of course, her own self – for denying her her life’s rightful conclusion as brutal dictator of the entire world!!!!!!, er, the first female POTUS.
  • In the end, the interview was just a sad chat fest between two relics of the 1990s, a parting gift by CBS to the network’s preferred candidate, delivered by a long-ago has-been who also once thought she should rule the entire world from the anchor desk at NBC’s Nightly News.
  • Ok, who’s stupid enough to criticize the Clintons in public?  You? No.  You?  No.  Hey, let’s get Doug Schoen! – But no matter how pathetic a character the Corruption Queen becomes, she steadfastly refuses to leave the national stage, reminding of no one so much as Gloria Swanson playing the washed up movie queen Nora Desmond in Sunset Boulevard.  Her never ending ‘you all failed me’ tours have become very unproductive exercises for the Democrat Party, whose leadership, such as it is, would like to move on.  Things have become so dire that someone in power convinced long-time Democrat operative Doug Schoen, who worked on The Most Corrupt Woman’s failed 2008 quest for total domination, that it would be a great idea for him to write a piece in The Hill encouraging Ms. Clinton to please just go away already.
  • Dear Hillary: please don’t make me ‘commit suicide’ for writing this, ok? – Mr. Schoen’s piece is actually very pointed, and contains this key paragraph:  “Recently, Clinton was quoted saying that she felt that Trump “was literally breathing down my neck” during a debate, and that she felt “incredibly uncomfortable.” While this generates lots of coverage for her, these anecdotes only distract from the real reasons she lost and the changes the Democratic Party needs to make going forward.”  Hooboy.  Let’s hope Mr. Schoen has kept his life insurance premiums paid up to date.
  • He’s been waiting for this moment for twelve long years. – As Hurricane Irma made landfall on Sunday, the streets of Miami literally were flowing with water.  We can count on Al Gore to include films of this flooding in his next fake climate change documentary, and tell his viewers that this was just a normal Tuesday in Little Havana.
  • Quick, hide the wife and children. – Joe Biden’s daughter, Ashley Biden, told a reporter that her father is “considering” a run for the presidency in 2020, when he will be 76 years old.  Ok, so, who is going to get Schoen to write another piece telling Joe it’s time to shut up and go away?  And what about Bernie?  And Elizabeth Warren?  How many times can the Democrats go to the Schoen well here?

Just another day in the Democrat Party is Dying and There’s No Way to Stop it America.

That is all.
