Today’s Campaign Update
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)
Well, of course she did. – Bad comic Amy Schumer – niece of Chuck Schumer – held a press conference in which she announced all the Democrat candidates who she, in her infinite wisdom, wants everyone else to vote for. Almost as an afterthought, she also announced she was pregnant. We all have our priorities in life, and these are hers.
America’s Biggest Mistake suddenly reappears on the campaign trail, and boy is it rich. – Barack Hussein Obama – who had mysteriously disappeared from the campaign trail after making a big announcement promising to campaign all over the country back in early September – suddenly materialized before a mediocre audience out in Las Vegas. There, in a 38-minute TelePrompter speech in which he referred to his own self 92 times, he also had this to say:
"Unlike some, I actually try to state facts," Pres. Obama says. "I don't believe in just making stuff up. I think you should actually say to people what's true." https://t.co/kg7dHnc6jh pic.twitter.com/CtKKn4VMDH

No word if he then went on to say “If you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor. If you like your plan, you can keep your plan. Those manufacturing jobs are never coming back. I didn’t know anything about Uranium One. I found out about Hillary’s private server when everyone else did. Same thing with all that gun-running Eric Holder was doing down in Mexico. You can’t just wave a magic wand and get 3 percent growth…”, but it seems pretty likely.

Is that mean-spirited? Yeah, I guess. But we put up with waaaayyyyy too much BS in this society, and it’s time to start walking some of it back.
And speaking of walking things back… – The newsfakers at NBCNews continued the steady walking-back of their year-long “Blue Wave!!!!!” fantasy with a Monday article headlined “Republicans Out-pacing Democrats in Early Voting in Key States, NBC News Finds.” Wow, who knew?
The piece looks at early voting numbers from Texas, Florida, Arizona, Nevada, Tennessee, Montana, Indiana and Georgia. In every state but Nevada, Republican-affiliated voters lead in the preliminary mail-in and early in-person voting totals. Republicans usually lead in mail-in ballots in most states, but do not normally lead in early in-person voting in some of the states studied.
In this particular analysis, the most crucial states to keep watching are Nevada, where Republican Dean Heller is really the lone GOP incumbent senator in trouble this time around, and in Florida, Montana and Indiana, where it is somewhat unusual for Republicans to be leading in these early totals. If these leads continue, the Democrat incumbents in those states are in a ton of trouble given that Republicans will dominate the turnout on Election Day itself.
Man, nobody could have seen that one coming…oh, wait…
Monday was another bad day for our favorite Creepy Porn Lawyer. – A judge in California has ordered the Creepy Porn Lawyer to pay $4.85 million that he has owed his law partners for several years while living an extravagant lifestyle. Other reports indicate that CPL was recently evicted from his Los Angeles law offices in relation to the dispute. The Daily Beast also reported last week that CPL owes $1.2 million in back taxes to the federal government. Hey, how come CPL doesn’t have his own GoFundMe account? Surely all those liberal suckers who gave millions to Stormy Daniels and Christine Ford would pony up for their Creepy Porn hero too?
Oh, hey, and President Donald Trump (I never tire of typing those three blessed words) was in Houston last night! – Boy, was it epic. You had 19,000 people sitting or standing inside the Toyota Center, and another 19,000 or so watching the event on huge video screens that had been set up outside the arena. Below is a shot of a portion of the huge crowd that had gathered on the Downtown Houston streets by mid-afternoon:
The President was there stumping on behalf of the guy he used to call “Lyin’ Ted Cruz.” Before he even left Washington D.C. Monday afternoon, Mr. Trump set the White House fake press corps into a frenzied set of the vapors, telling them as he boarded Marine One that “He’s not Lyin’ Ted anymore. He’s Beautiful Ted. I call him Texas Ted.” Much tsk-tsking and tut-tutting immediately materialized on the Twitter accounts of fake journalists all over Washington and New York.
The newsfakers at CNN were further scandalized when the President embraced the fact that he is an American nationalist, saying:
“A globalist is a person that wants the globe to do well, frankly not caring about the country so much. You know, we can’t have that,” Trump said, prompting boos from the crowd. “You know what I am, I’m a nationalist,” he added, as the crowd erupted in “USA! USA!” chants. “Use that word.”
Millions of Americans in Texas and all over the rest of Flyover Country heard that and said, “Hey, #MeToo!” But of course, the leftwingers in the Democrat Party and our fake news media have spent the last 25 years turning the term “nationalist” into a political cussword, so they’re all in a fury about it this morning.
The Houston Chronicle noted that “Trump acknowledged that he and Cruz ‘had our little difficulties’ and ‘it got nasty’ during the 2016 Republican presidential primary, when Trump called Cruz ‘Lyin’ Ted.’ But he commended Cruz for doing a ‘beautiful job staring down an angry left-wing mob’ during the confirmation of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh,” all of which is absolutely true, but we can be sure that a bunch of leftist “fact-checkers” in the Texas and national news media will determine it isn’t. Because that’s what our fake news media does to this President.
In the end, having both America’s Biggest Mistake and President Donald Trump book-ending the political day served as a perfect object lesson about why our country is so blessed to have Trump as Obama’s successor: While Obama’s speech was filled with “I” and “me” and carefully read off of a TelePrompter, Trump’s speech was all about “we”, and largely extemporaneous.
For Obama, everything was always all about him. For Trump, it’s all about America.
What else do we really need to know?
That is all.
