Tuesday News Roundup: A UniParty Impeachment Deal, and Why Ron DeSantis Must Lead the GOP Resistance

Today’s Short-Term Memory Update – Just a reminder that we are now less than 3 weeks away from the 365-day anniversary of “15 Days to Flatten the Curve.”

BREAKING: The UniParty has reached a deal with itself! – The Democrats’ latest impeachment scam attacking Donald Trump is set to start today, as UniParty leaders Democan Chuck Schumer and Republicrat Mitch McConnell reached a deal on what the “rules” for the looming orgy of hyper-partisan slander will look like.

From a story at Politico:

The agreement between Schumer and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, in conjunction with the House impeachment managers and Trump’s lawyers, will allow up to four hours of arguments on Tuesday about the constitutionality of putting a former president on trial. The Senate will then vote on whether the trial is constitutional.

Beginning on Wednesday, each side will have up to 16 hours to lay out their case, spread out over two days per side. Senators will then have four hours to pose questions to the House managers and Trump’s attorneys.

The agreement also allows for the House managers to ask for a debate and subsequent votes on whether to call witnesses — a provision specifically requested by the managers, Schumer said. Later, each side will have two hours to present closing arguments.

[End]

On that last point, Democrats will have to tread lightly on calling witnesses, given that several Republicans – like Lindsey Graham – have threatened to retaliate for any Democrat calling of witnesses by calling an array of prominent Dems to testify, including members of the senate itself:

What is shaping up here is exactly what everyone should have anticipated: Yet another act in the unending farce that is the DC Swamp Kabuki Theater. We already know the outcome – there will not be nearly enough votes to convict the former President of the fraudulent “incitement to insurrection” article of impeachment – and every word uttered by any Democrat will be a bald-faced lie. Because that’s what Democrats do.

Of course, they will have as many as five RINOs voting with them, so they’ll be able to claim it was all “bi-partisan.” But even that word itself is a sham as applied to Washington, DC, since there is in reality only one party in the DC Swamp, and everything it does is scripted in advance.

Are we not entertained?

Where are Texas and Florida on this? – The state legislatures in North Dakota and South Dakota are both currently considering bills that would give their governors extraordinary authority to nullify Biden executive orders that they and their attorneys general deem to be illegal and/or unconstitutional.

From a story at RedState.com:

In other words, if Biden issues an executive order, the state’s attorney general may review the order to determine if it complies with the Constitution. From there, the state will determine if they should seek exemption from the order or challenge the order on constitutional grounds.

The bill goes on to state specifics when it comes to the orders it will “nullify” in the event of constitutional breaches, such as “pandemics or other health emergencies,” regulation of North Dakota’s agriculture industry, any financial orders that relate to environmental or social standards, and “the regulation of the constitutional right to keep and bear arms.”

As a separate but related bill, Republican State Rep. Sebastian Ertelt introduced a similar law that would nullify any federal laws that also breach constitutional authority. HB1282 would create a “Committee on Neutralization of Federal Laws” which would determine the constitutionality of any given federal law and, if found wanting, would proceed to nullify it within the state.

North Dakota isn’t the only state looking to implement these bills into law. South Dakota has cooked up a few of their own bills that effectively do the same thing.

[End]

This is what is known as a good start, but the same approach needs to be taken up by every Red State in America. This is the way for Republicans/conservatives to resist the leftist surge the Biden/Harris people are currently attempting to force upon the American public.

Conservatives are not going to do what Democrats do, and create a terrorist wing (BLM/Antifa) that executes violent riots all over the country on their behalf. The way for conservatives to resist these unconstitutional orders is through the legislative process and the courts, which means that GOP-dominated legislatures and GOP governors will have to suck it up and lead the effort.

It’s one thing for the Dakotas, with their combined populations of less than 2 million Americans, to do this, but what is needed is for Texas and Florida, with their combined populations now in excess of 50 million, to also jump into the fray and lead. Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton got off to a good start a few weeks ago with his challenge to Biden’s order to halt all deportations, but a start is all that is. We now need the governors of those states to step in.

There, we will have to hope that Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis will lead the way, since Texas Gov. Gregg Abbott has proved to be very timid in really challenging the national orthodoxy. Take it from a Texan: If there is to be a real and viable conservative resistance to the Biden/Harris junta, DeSantis will have to lead it.

Being a leftist crisis actor means never having to say you’re sorry:

What, Robert DeNiro and Alec Baldwin weren’t available? – The great Mollie Hemingway has a terrific takedown of Jeep’s amazingly tone-deaf and hypocritical Super Bowl ad featuring 3-note rock star Bruce Springsteen at The Federalist today. After spending the past four years as a prominent participant in the far-left hate campaign against Donald Trump, Springsteen is not quite the last person Jeep should have selected to feature in an ad calling for national unity, but he’s pretty damn close.

Here’s an excerpt from Hemingway’s piece:

Just before the 2020 election, Springsteen called for “an exorcism in our nation’s capital” as dark music played on his radio show. Of Trump’s presidency, he said, “I thought it was a f—ing nightmare, but it was true.” The episode, titled “Farewell To The Thief,” also insulted President Trump’s family.

The 71-year-old Springsteen told Australians that he would leave the United States and move there if Trump was re-elected.

Springsteen’s posture against Republicans is well known and goes back decades. He was angry at President Ronald Reagan’s positive mention of Springsteen’s “Born In The U.S.A.” He endorsed and campaigned for John Kerry, Barack Obama, and Joe Biden.

Of President George W. Bush in 2008, Springsteen said the United States was now “suffering the consequences” of eight years of rule by a “very radical group of people who pushed things in a very radical direction, had great success in moving things in that direction, and we are suffering the consequences.” By 2016, he was calling President Trump a “moron.” In 2017 he bashed Trump in a protest song.

As one Twitter user put it, “That’s all I could think of, the whole spot. Being preached to by someone who doesn’t respect my views who relishes in suppressing them, having the nerve to pretend to be ‘my community’ and declare unity. They have no idea how transparently cynical the whole thing came across.”

[End]

The choice of a spokesman by Jeep could have been worse, but not a lot worse. I’ve actually bought two Jeeps in my life, but will never even consider buying another one after this cynical display.

That is all.

Friday News Roundup: AOC’s Riot Fable Continues to Fall Apart

Every day is a new day for China Joe Biden. – President Biden just can’t help himself. Yesterday he repeated a lie that he made up a decade ago about getting “shot at” while on a trip in the Middle East. That lie has been debunked more times than Jussie Smollett’s lies, but the President likely just forgot about that fact. So, he just blurted it out one more time:

This is who we have in the White House: A man who can’t remember things from one day to the next. If you think it looks and sounds as if every day is a new day for Joe Biden, that’s because it is.

The woman is lying. If you see her lips moving, she’s lying. That’s what she does. – In what should come as a surprise to literally no one on the face of the earth who has synapses firing in their cranial cavities, more factual problems have arisen about the fables AOC has been telling about her experience during the Capitol Riot of January 6.

It turns out that she wasn’t even in the Capitol Building at the time of the riot, but that the timeline she has constructed around her fables simply is not possible.

From the story at RedState.com:

But when the knock came on her door, shortly after 1:01, no one had even breached the Capitol building yet. There was some pushing past an outer perimeter barrier at 12:53 still some distance from the Capitol building but the breach of the building didn’t come until about an hour after the officer knocked on AOC’s door. What she’s saying now is with the hindsight of what later occurred, but there was no way of knowing that people were breaching a building at that point because it hadn’t yet happened.

“As the Capitol complex was stormed and people were being killed, none of us knew in the moment what areas were compromised.” But that “moment” hadn’t actually happened yet at 1:01 p.m. No one knew any of that. The building hadn’t been “compromised” or “stormed” as of yet.

So suggesting that it had, to provide buttress for her reaction, is again manipulative.

There’s also been no public evidence that people were ever trying to storm the Cannon building, much less at 1:01 p.m. We’ve asked the Capitol Police for their records to confirm that but haven’t gotten a response yet.

[End]

RedState should not expect to get an answer from the Capitol Police for the simple fact that AOC is lying, and the Capitol Police won’t want to cause her any more humiliation than she has already brought onto herself.

She’s a liar – it’s what she does. Lying to gullible and easily-manipulated Democrat voters is how she got elected, and it is how she plans to continue to rise through the power structure in Washington, DC. As I have said many times before, if you believe in reincarnation, then when you look into AOC’s dead, beady eyes you should see the reincarnation of Adolph Hitler. At this point in her life, she is Hitler circa 1933 or so, and she intends to keep rising until she becomes Hitler circa 1939.

So of course she is lying about the riot, because the riot, in her mind, simply represents opportunity to manipulate the public. After all, that’s how Adolph would have looked at it, too.

Speaking of opportunities… – If congressional Republicans had spines, they would be looking at yesterday’s action by congressional Democrats to strip Marjorie Taylor Green of her committee assignments as a golden opportunity. In an action without precedent in modern times, the Democrats – with 11 RINOs supporting them – voted to remove a duly-elected representative from Georgia from all House committees.

From the story at the Daily Caller:

The House of Representatives voted Thursday to strip Republican Georgia Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene of her committee assignments.

In a 230-199 vote, the House voted to remove Greene from the House Education and Budget committees.

Greene has continued to claim that Trump won the Nov. 3 presidential election and has been linked to a number of conspiracy theories, including QAnon related conspiracies. Greene gave a speech on the House floor Thursday after a Wednesday night meeting with House Republicans where she apologized for promoting conspiracy theories and reportedly was met with applause by many in the room.

House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy said Wednesday that he would not remove Greene from her committee assignments.

“Past comments from and endorsed by Marjorie Taylor Greene on school shootings, political violence, and anti-Semitic conspiracy theories do not represent the values or beliefs of the House Republican Conference. I condemn those comments unequivocally. I condemned them in the past. I continue to condemn them today. This House condemned QAnon last Congress and continues to do so today,” McCarthy said in a statement released Wednesday afternoon.

[End]

Coming as it does a mere month after it was revealed that Democrat Eric Swalwell had an affair with a honeypot spy from China for a couple of years and the decision by Nancy Pelosi to leave Swalwell as a member of the House Homeland Security Committee, the decision to remove Greene from committees is a truly breathtaking act of hyper-partisanship. Yes, Greene’s a conspiracy theorist who has in the past indicated she doesn’t believe the government’s story on 9/11 and all manner of other things, but the truth is her behavior has been no more repugnant than that of AOC or Rashida Tlaib or Ilhan Omar or Swalwell.

So, if congressional Republicans possessed a spine, they would be looking at yesterday’s vote from a long-term perspective, and making plans to take exactly the same action against AOC, Tlaib, Omar and Swalwell when they take back the majority in the House in the 2022 mid-term elections. That is, after all, the next logical step to be taken here.

But you can bet your bottom dollar that neither Majority Leader McCarthy nor any other GOP house member is entertaining any such thoughts, because to do so would require the possession of intestinal fortitude. It would also require them to finally, at long last, recognize that they are engaged in a very real war on Capitol Hill, and have been for the last 170 years, and the Democrats are the only side truly engaged in the fight.

Thus, when congress convenes in 2023 with a small GOP majority in the House, you won’t see McCarthy allowing any move to remove any Democrat from any committee assignments, under the rationale that if he and his Republican members just play nice with the Democrats, they will play nice, too. It’s a rationale that has consistently proved to be an exercise in rank futility since about 1850, but the Republicans never seem to learn.

That is all.

Thursday News Roundup: AOC is Caught in Capitol Lies as Kerry is Caught in Climate Lies

Hey, remember how AOC has been going around claiming she “almost died” during the Capitol Riot on January 6? – Remember how she told Ted Cruz that he had “tried to have me murdered” during that riot? Remember her story just this week about how a member of the Capitol Police burst into her office and looked at her in a “threatening” manner?

Yeah, those were all lies. Just like pretty much everything else she ever says.

It turns out that the best evidence shows that AOC wasn’t even in the Capitol Building when things were going down.

From the story at JustTheNews.com: 

Following Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’ emotional Instagram retelling of the events of Jan. 6, in which she said she feared for her life, an analysis of the events by the RedState news website points out the New York Democrat wasn’t in the Capitol Building at the time of the riot.

“If she was in her office, she was in the Cannon Building which is nearby, but a different building,” the RedState report reads. “Many didn’t get the logistics and just assumed that she was in the Capitol building.”

South Carolina Rep. Nancy Mace, who like Ocasio-Cortez has an office in the Cannon Building, adjacent to the U.S. Capitol Building, also suggested her House colleague’s account of the incident is exaggerated.

“My office is 2 doors down,” Mace tweeted. “Insurrectionists never stormed our hallway. Egregious doesn’t even begin to cover it. Is there nothing MSM won’t politicize?”

The congresswoman said Wednesday that the RedState report was “manipulative.”

“This is the latest manipulative take on the right,” she wrote on Twitter. “They are manipulating the fact that most people don’t know the layout the Capitol complex. We were all on the Capitol complex – the attack wasn’t just on the dome. The bombs Trump supporters planted surrounded our offices too.”

[End]

Note: No “Trump supporters” planted any bombs surrounding her or anyone else’s offices.

What AOC is doing in manipulating the Capitol Riot for political profit is no different than her attempt to milk the whole “Kids in cages” hoax a couple of years back. Who can forget this?:

The woman is an actor. That’s all she is. Well, that, and she’s possibly the most shameless liar to ever hold congressional office, which is saying a hell of a lot.

Funny Twitter Meme of the Day:

Image

Yes, because the French prefer to limit their orgies to no more than 75 participants:

Your Global Church of Climate Change PSA for Today – Remember, kids, the edicts issued by your betters in the globalist elite class about minimizing your carbon footprint to help prevent “climate change” apply only to you, and not your betters in the globalist elite class.

Our latest illustration of this reality comes from China Joe Biden’s new “Climate Czar”, John Kerry, who admitted yesterday that he much prefers to take his private, carbon-spewing jet to all of those global climate conferences where he receives his many awards for being so concerned about the global climate:

Holy crap. From the story at Fox News:

President Biden’s recently appointed climate czar, John Kerry, took a private jet to Iceland in 2019 to receive the Arctic Circle award for climate leadership, Fox News has learned.

Kerry defended his high-pollution ride at the time, calling it “the only choice for somebody like me who is traveling the world to win this battle” in an interview obtained by Fox News. The incident had not been previously reported in the American press.

Ólafur Ragnar Grímsson, who led the Arctic Circle Roundtable, criticized Kerry for traveling to the event via private jet, Icelandic outlet RUV reported.

Kerry received the award, which took the form of an iceberg sculpture, for being “a consistent voice pressuring the American authorities to commit to tackle environmental matters,” the outlet noted.

Icelandic reporter Jóhann Bjarni Kolbeinsson confronted Kerry at the event over his choice of transportation, asking: “I understand that you came here with a private jet. Is that an environmental way to travel?”

Kerry responded by claiming that it was the only way.  “If you offset your carbon — it’s the only choice for somebody like me who is traveling the world to win this battle,” Kerry said.

“I negotiated the Paris Accords for the United States,” he added, referring to the multilateral climate agreement signed while he was secretary of state under President Obama.

[End]

Note: When Kerry talks about how he “offsets” his carbon spewing, he is no doubt referring to the buying of “carbon credits,” the globalist scam through which Al Gore has become a near-billionaire. If America had anything resembling an honest and curious news media, he would be pounded with demands by reporters to release the records of his purchase of what would have to be millions of dollars of carbon credits to offset the hundreds of flights he has taken on his own private jet.

You can be certain that no one in the U.S. media will pose that uncomfortable question to him. Because that’s what any self-respecting Nazi-style propaganda operation would do.

The election issue remains alive in Arizona. – Despite the best efforts of the Democrats and their toadies in the corrupt news media to make it all just go away, controversy over the November 3 election results remains alive in Arizona. There, stalwart Republicans in the state senate have sponsored a resolution this week holding the members of the Maricopa County Board of Supervisors in contempt for refusing to comply with an audit of the county’s election results.

Maricopa County is home to Phoenix, and has been plagued by hundreds of allegations of election fraud since last November. The refusal by the Board of Supervisors to comply with a simple audit of the balloting only serves to raise suspicions, obviously. The resolution, sponsored by all 16 members of the Senate GOP majority, now subjects members of the board to arrest and jailing if they continue to refuse to comply.

From a story at JustTheNews.com:

The entire contingent of 16 Republicans in the Arizona state senate has sponsored a resolution to hold the five members of the Maricopa County Board of Supervisors in contempt for not complying with subpoenas pertaining to equipment, ballots and more related to the 2020 election.

The resolution may raise the possibility of arrests. It calls for the state senate president to “take all legal action pursuant to section 41-1153, Arizona Revised Statutes, to enforce the subpoena.” That section of Arizona law states: “A witness neglecting or refusing to attend in obedience to a subpoena may be arrested by the sergeant-at-arms and brought before the senate or house upon authority of a copy of the resolution signed by the president or speaker, and countersigned by the secretary or chief clerk.”

Since the chamber’s 14 Democrats will probably not support the resolution, all 16 Republicans will need to vote for it in order for it to pass when the chamber eventually votes on it, according to the Arizona Mirror.

[End]

In Arizona, truly, the fun never ends. At least, not yet.

That is all.

Democrats/Media Sure are Worried About Trump Remaining in Office

Today’s ongoing Democrat/media-created uproar about yet another completely appropriate conversation President Trump conducted in December with the utterly corrupt Georgia Sec. of State Brad Raffernsperger shows that those on the left are much more worried about the President ultimately prevailing in his challenges to the clearly fraudulent election results than they pretend to be.

Some of the more extreme leftists, like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, are already claiming that the call, in which the President clearly urges the worthless Raffensperger to look for the needed number of fraudulent votes to overturn the fraudulent vote count, somehow constitute grounds for impeachment, a la the completely appropriate call between Trump and the president of the Ukraine. Others, like pea-brained California cong. Ted Lieu, are calling for DOJ to open a criminal investigation:

Meanwhile, Twitter has the subject “trending” with this description: “Trump pressures Georgia Secretary of State to ‘find’ Trump votes in the state, according to audio obtained by The Washington Post”.

All of this abject nonsense, as GOP Cong. Mo Brooks said on NewsMax TV this morning:

Is it a distraction, as Cong. Brooks says? Well, probably. The Democrats and their media toadies do love to focus on topics that are extraneous to the real, pressing issues of the day. You know, like the obvious, blatant and massive election fraud the Democrat perpetrated in Georgia, Pennsylvania, Michigan, Wisconsin and Arizona.

But I think it may also be more than that. I think the Democrats remain concerned that the President might ultimately find a way to prevail in this fight, and they do have good reason for that concern. When you have more than 100 Republican members of the House and a dozen GOP senators lined up to object to the congressional certification of the electoral vote on January 6, that’s a cause for concern.

Even if you believe, as I do, that those objections will only delay the inevitable outcome on Wednesday, they will result in just one more day on which the public is made aware that something really bad took place in those states named above on Election Night and the days that followed.

But if Democrats believe their planned installation of a demented Chinese puppet into the Oval office on January 20 is inevitable, why the absurd rhetoric about impeachment and DOJ investigation of an innocuous phone call between two Republicans? Why do they and their corrupt media toadies feel the need to maintain the ridiculous pretense that election fraud just doesn’t happen? If they’re so certain that that’s a true contention, why oppose Ted Cruz’s proposal for a 10-day emergency audit of the vote with accusations of sedition?

I honestly don’t believe sitting here today that President Trump has any magic bullets up his sleeve that will enable him to prevail in his efforts to overturn the recorded outcome of the election. The deck is obviously stacked against him, including at the Supreme Court, which has gone to extraordinary lengths to avoid taking any role in this.

But really, the behavior we are seeing from the Democrats and their agents at America’s Nazi-style national media outlets is not the behavior of people who are confident of victory. It’s the behavior of people who know they’ve been caught and are scared to death of losing, and you have to wonder why it is happening.

That is all.

Sunday News Roundup: Dozen GOP Senators Will Oppose Electoral Cert and San Fran Nan Polices Pronouns

San Fran Nan goes full-on SJW. – San Fran Nan, under deep pressure from OAC and her gang of lunatic leftists, issued a new set of House rules on Saturday that in part will eliminate the use of proper pronouns that members can use to identify one another. In a sop to the transgender lobby, proper English language pronouns like “he” and “she” will be replaced with improper pronouns like “xe” and “they”.

No, I’m not making this up. From a story at Axios:

The U.S. House of Representatives is poised to rewrite its rules — swapping out male and female references like “he” and “she” for gender-neutral terms — in a diversity and inclusion push by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and the Democrats that’s drawing scorn from Republicans.

Why it matters: The proposal comes as transgender and non-binary candidates are being elected around the country, progressives are gaining influence in the Democratic politics and U.S. schools and companies are adjusting policies and language to reflect society’s changing views on sexuality and gender identification.

  • The proposed changes were announced Friday ahead of two pivotal runoffs in Georgia on Jan. 5 to decide which party controls the Senate — and could stoke turnout among its supporters or opponents.
  • Members are expected to consider the package next week.

[End]

In a story at The Hill, House Rules Chair Jim McGovern (D-Mass.) is quoted as saying that “This proposal also shines a light on those struggling to get ahead in America today and ensures we remain focused on the most pressing issues facing our nation.” Yes, friends, it is now the official policy of the Democrat Party that pronouns are among the “most pressing issues facing our nation.”

Not Section 230; not getting our men and women out of myriad wars in foreign hell-holes; not a balloning debt or a fading economy or reining in out-of-control governors; the Democrat Party is focused on PRONOUNS.

Just so y’all know, my preferred pronouns are “Bubba” and “Tex.” Please be sure that you use them properly, as in “Bubba’s fixin’ to go fix that leaky sprinkler system,” or “Tex ate them enchiladas like a hog eats slop.”

Holy crap.

Fauci continues boiling the American frog. – The little menace to society was at it again on Saturday, moving the goal posts of Bill Gates’s globalist Great Reset down the field even further. This time, Fauci, in is own inimicable way, not so subtly suggests that it would be perfectly reasonable for the government to start issuing “COVID-19 vaccine passports” that would limit travel, school and attending public gathering to only those who have taken the shots, a step I had warned you about a week ago.

Gee, what a surprise.

From a story at the Daily Caller:

In an interview with Newsweek, Dr. Anthony Fauci floated the possibility that the coronavirus vaccine would be made mandatory for things like school and travel.

Dr. Fauci, the Director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) explained that there could be a “possibility of introducing COVID-19 vaccine passports,” as well as making the vaccine mandatory at the local level, Newsweek reported.

When asked if there was the possibility that the vaccine could be mandatory for school Fauci explained, “That is possible but that’s something that’s mandated at the state level and city level. A citywide school system might require it in some cities but not other cities. And that’s what I mean by things not being done centrally but locally.”

[End]

As always, Fauci carefully couches his fascist ambitions as mere possibilities and as mandates that would have to be placed on the population by others. But the reality is that his role in the steadily-advancing assault on individual freedoms has been that of the “expert” stalking horse, the media darling who consistently awards his seal of approval for these anti-constitutional actions in advance so that the tyrant governors and mayors can claim their brutish treatment of their citizens is supported by “science.”

Herman Goering would have absolutely worshipped Anthony Fauci.

Sen. Josh Hawley gets some company. – I’ve spent the last several days praising Missouri Sen. Josh Hawley for being the first – and until yesterday, only – GOP senator to stand up and say he will challenge congress’s January 6 effort to certify the clearly fraudulent Electoral Vote. I couldn’t help wondering out loud why normally stalwart conservatives like Ted Cruz, Tom Cotton, Rand Paul and a handful of other GOP senators weren’t standing with Hawley and his defiance of Mitch McConnell’s “go along to get along” edict on the matter.

Well, yesterday, Sen. Cruz and 10 more Republican senators decided to finally step up and be counted among those who are properly disturbed by election theft happening all around them, further demanding the conduct of a “10-day emergency audit” of the vote. But interestingly, Senators Paul and Cotton are not among this Gang of 11.

From a story at The Hill:

Eleven Senate Republicans on Saturday announced that they will vote for objections to the Electoral College results Wednesday, when Congress convenes in a joint session to formally count the vote.

GOP Sens. Ted Cruz (Texas), Ron Johnson (Wis.), James Lankford (Okla.), Steve Daines (Mont.), John Kennedy (La.), Marsha Blackburn (Tenn.) and Mike Braun (Ind.) and Sens.-elect Cynthia Lummis (Wyo.), Roger Marshall (Kan.), Bill Hagerty (Tenn.) and Tommy Tuberville (Ala.) said in a joint statement that they will vote against accepting the election results until there is a 10-day audit.

“Congress should immediately appoint an Electoral Commission, with full investigatory and fact-finding authority, to conduct an emergency 10-day audit of the election returns in the disputed states,” they said. “Once completed, individual states would evaluate the Commission’s findings and could convene a special legislative session to certify a change in their vote, if needed.

The senators didn’t say in their joint statement if they plan to object to the results from specific states, how they would divvy up those objections or if they would just vote in support of challenges to the Electoral College results if they reach the Senate.

[End]

Why Cotton or Paul are not among the now-dozen GOP senators willing to lodge a challenge is anyone’s guess, since neither has been asked or chosen to comment as far as I can tell. Regardless, you now have a dozen GOP senators and well over 100 members of the House who have figured out that the Trump support base, and thus, at least 80% of the GOP’s entire support base, is not going to be placated on this particular issue.

The fact that so many other GOP members of congress still haven’t figured that fact of life out says nothing good about the future of the Republican Party. Those folks are whistling past their own political graveyards.

That is all.

Is America “Trending Towards Secession”? Maybe So.

On his radio program yesterday, Rush Limbaugh indicated his belief that our country may be trending towards secession by some states.

From the story at Mediaite:

Rush Limbaugh said on his radio show Wednesday that the U.S. may be “trending toward secession.”

As Limbaugh talked about liberal cities like New York and San Francisco, he took up a question of whether “we can win the culture.”

“I actually think — and I’ve referenced this, I’ve alluded to this a couple of times because I’ve seen others allude to this — I actually think that we’re trending toward secession,” he said.

“I see more and more people asking what in the world do we have in common with the people who live in, say, New York?” Limbaugh asked.

In the segment, first flagged by Media Matters, he said, “A lot of bloggers have written extensively about how distant and separated and how much more separated our culture is becoming politically and that it can’t go on this way. There cannot be a peaceful coexistence of two completely different theories of life, theories of government, theories of how we manage our affairs. We can’t be in this dire a conflict without something giving somewhere along the way.”

[End]

Rush is generally right, and he may well be right here. This all ties in with my piece from the past weekend titled “How Does America Recover From This? It Doesn’t.”

Past generations of Americans had plenty in common, the most obvious among those things being that we were all Americans and all but a tiny few felt an undying loyalty to this country. That love of country – taught in our schools, in our churches and promoted by the entertainment and news media industries – bound us together. We were Americans and damn proud of it.

But that has all changed in America today, specifically on the radical political leftwing, which now dominates the Democrat Party and its policy pursuits. As I discussed in that piece, our entire system of government and the viability of our constitutional Republic depends on the premise that the vast majority of those who govern us would be people of good will who love this country and are loyal to it. Sadly, that entire premise has now become extremely suspect in the Democrat Party, the party that dominates states like New York, which Rush referred to in that monologue.

Today’s Democrat Party not only tolerates having an Eric Swalwell among it, Nancy Pelosi assigns him to serve on the House Intelligence Committee, a post from which he could easily share America’s most tightly held national security secrets to his ChiCom honeypot. Today’s Democrat Party not only tolerates having a Dianne Feinstein – who employed a ChiCom spy as her chauffer for 20 years – in its midst, Harry Reid and Chuck Schumer assign her to serve as the Party’s senior member on the Senate Judiciary Committee, and as a member of the Senate Intelligence Committee.

Today’s Democrat Party not only tolerates having anti-Semitic, America hating members like AOC, Rashida Talib and Ilhan Omar in its midst, it celebrates them, gives them plum committee assignments and affords them heavy influence in the Party’s agenda.

Today’s Democrat Party not only tolerates having ChiCom sellouts like Joe and Hunter Biden in its midst, it celebrates them, covers up for them and even rigs its presidential nomination for an elderly, declining lifelong circus clown as a reward.

The abject hatred of America and everything it stands far among those on the radical political left is not only glaringly evident in Congress, we can see it every day rioting in the streets and issuing heinous diatribes on Twitter, Facebook and other social media platforms. We are at a point in this country where one cannot wear a cap expressing a desire for this country to be great again without being physically assaulted on the streets with the full sanction of many local mayors and the entirety of the corrupt national news media. We are at a point in our country where one risks assault by admitting he or she works in the oil industry or goes to church. We are at a point in our country where major city Democrat mayors like Bill De Blasio feel free to repeatedly attack, chastise and discriminate against Jews and Christians.

What do people in Texas or Oklahoma or North Dakota or Louisiana or Alabama have in common with people in New York or California or Seattle or Portland anymore? Not much, and in very large part, not even love of country.

So, when Rush Limbaugh says he thinks we are trending towards secession, he should be taken seriously.

That is all.

How Does America Recover From This? It Doesn’t.

How does America come back from all of this? How does our country recover from the last five years of rank media fakery, Democrat depravity and China Virus mendacity?

I was asked that question this week on my regular appearance with 93.1 FM afternoon talk show host Greg Budell, who blessedly provides the people of Montgomery, Alabama with a brilliant alternative to listening to Sean Besmirched Bought and Paid For Captain Tick Tock Hannity.

My terse reply was, we don’t. Not in any real sense, anyway.

That’s also how a more expansive answer begins this morning. America doesn’t recover from all of this, folks. It can’t, for the simple fact that our society has lost two fundamental foundations that are absolutely necessary in order for our constitutional republican system to work:

The first and most fundamental of those is the assumption by the founding fathers that positions of political power would be filled by people who actually love this country. Men like Thomas Jefferson, John Adams, John Jay and Ben Franklin weren’t at all naive about human nature: They knew that politicians as a class would tend towards corruption and graft and greed. That is as it has always been and as it always will be.

But even the greedy and corrupt can still love the country and want it to survive and prosper, and that is the assumption that has been lost within the Democrat Party today, the Democrats in the House of Representatives being the most stark example.

The House Democrat caucus today consists of several distinct classes:

– A leadership class typified by greedy grifters like San Fran Nan, who have become fabulously wealthy while profiting from their positions of power;

– Race baiters like Sheila Jackson Lee, who line their pockets with money collected from the poorest of the poor in their districts;

– Hoax and conspiracy mongers like Adam Schiff who are still lying about Russia collusion and have no scruples that might prevent them from holding the country hostage for half a year to a completely made-up impeachment hoax; and

– Marxist radicals like Alexandria Ocasio Cortez and her “squad,” who also manage somehow to become fabulously wealthy, prancing around in $2,000 dresses while pushing frauds like the Green New Deal that would bankrupt the country.

No one in that House Democrat caucus has the best interests of the country in mind. Their sole driving interest is the acquisition and maintenance of political power that can be leveraged for their personal gain. As we have witnessed in this stolen election via massive voter fraud, the entire Democrat Party today is nothing but a huge organized crime operation, and the entire country is its victims.

This increasingly and overwhelmingly corrupt behavior by the Democrats should surprise no one. I’ve been writing for more than 30 years about the fact that politicians who have no moral scruples nor any fear of ever being held accountable for their actions will always become increasingly depraved and corrupt over time. It is simple human nature.

This brings us to the second fundamental foundation of American society that has been completely lost: A functioning news media establishment.

The founders envisioned that a free press would collectively serve as America’s Fourth Estate, a watch dog that protected the public interest by working to hold people in positions of power accountable by exposing their depravity and mendacity. The drafters of the Bill of Rights believed a free and functioning press was so crucial to maintaining the American Republic that they enshrined freedom of the press in the Constitution’s very first amendment.

They weren’t naive about the press of their time: They knew some media outlets would be biased and corrupt, but also believed the press as a whole would serve its intended function in our society, because exposing political corruption, regardless of party, sells newspapers.

That assumption held and the system worked right up until the point at which big, diverse, international corporations and billionaires began buying up the nation’s major media outlets. Today, well over 90% of the national mainstream media outlets are owned by six or seven huge corporations whose senior leadership is firmly globalist in nature. They all detest Donald Trump and his supporters with a passion and reward their media people for tailoring their coverage in ways that do him harm, often functioning at the direct behest of their financial benefactors in China.

Worse, corporate behemoths like AT&T, Comcast and Disney use their media subsidiaries like CNN, NBC and ABC as loss leaders within their corporate umbrellas, and don’t give a damn about audience size or profitability. Every incentive to employees in those media operations encourages corrupt and biased behavior that ends up creating hyper-focus on Trump and his fellow Republicans and aggressive efforts to avoid negative reporting about Joe Biden and his fellow Democrats.

Even worse than all of that is the fact that the freedom of the press enshrined in the first amendment and the interpretations of that clause by the federal courts over the past 231 years, combined with corporate ownership that does not care about profitability, means that there is basically no way for the public to hold the media accountable for its mendacity. Just as is true with politicians, corrupt journalists who have no fear of being held accountable for false reporting, and are in fact rewarded for it, will only become increasingly corrupt and dishonest. Again, simple human nature.

Thus, with a media class that has no fear of accountability refusing to cover a Democrat political class that has no fear of being held accountable, neither of which possessing a shred of love of country, the country will inevitably continue to spin out of control until it collapses or dissolves into a second civil war.

That is how we get to a situation in which a presidential election has literally been stolen in plain sight by one political party and the media establishment joins its arms in unison in abject refusal to cover the biggest political scandal in U.S. history, despite the enormous audience and profits real coverage would invariably bring.

How does America recover from this?

It doesn’t.

That is all.

No, Sen. Graham, There Can Be No Compromise With An Illegitimate Presidency

They’re coming for you, folks. Don’t kid yourselves otherwise. – All talk by the Democrats of unifying the country that we saw during the campaign has now gone up in smoke, replaced very quickly by talk of taking lists of Trump supporters in order to punish them for their sins over the last four years. And – no surprise at all here – they are being ably assisted by the creeps in the #NeverTrump RINO crowd.

Keeping this kind of list of political enemies and using it to punish them is of course a favored tactic of all despots down through history, including Lenin, Stalin, Hitler, Mao, Pol Pot, Castro and Hugo Chavez. It is just another part of the Marxist/Nazi playbook that the Democrat Party is now adopting as its own.

And – no surprise here at all – the leader of the movement is of course Alexandria Ocasio Cortez:

Here’s supreme #NeverTrump nitwit Jennifer Rubin, one of the WaPo’s pet fake conservative writers, helping to lead the charge:

And here is the pathetic RINO Evan what’s-his-name desperately attempting to make himself relevant somehow, some way to someone:

“We should keep and publish a list” said every Marxist/Leninist/Nazi despot in world history.

That is your Democrat Party today. Do not doubt me on this, as Rush Limbaugh would say.

Also no surprise at all is that the Cheese-eating Surrender Monkey caucus in the U.S. Senate is already making noises about surrendering to a Biden/Harris stolen presidency. – Because of course they are, and guess who the leader of this move is?

That’s right: Lindsey Graham. Take a look:

No, Biden doesn’t “deserve” a cabinet. He doesn’t deserve a damn thing. He obviously, blatantly stole this election, and Republicans should not spend a moment of their time on a single day in the next four years treating him and his designated successor as if he/she is a legitimate president. He is a usurper, an enemy of the people and the state, and should be treated thusly. And when he steps down at some point a few months into his term and is replaced by Kamala Harris, she should be treated the very same way.

That is how the Democrats treated Donald Trump for four long years, and that and nothing more is what Biden/Harris deserve from the GOP. Rather than surrender and deliver them a cabinet of their choosing, the GOP Senate majority should vote down every damn nominee whose political views lie to the left of Winston Churchill, for the good of the country. The senate majority should vote down every policy proposal that comes their way, reject every nominee to the courts, reject every treaty sent for them to ratify.

The senate majority should, for the good and survival of this nation, forget about legislating and spend every moment of every waking day holding hearings investigating every move made by Biden/Harris, just as the Democrat House majority has spent its time over the past two years. No Republican worth having that designation next to his or her name should concede a shred of legitimacy to the atrocity the Democrat Party is seeking to perpetrate on our country.

The evidence is clear and overwhelming at this point that the Democrat Party has systematically stolen this election through massive fraud involving millions of mail-in ballots. The proof of outright fraud is everywhere, and no Republican should ever for a moment treat a Biden/Harris regime as being legitimate in any way, shape or form.

To his credit, Graham did say later that he is not conceding that Biden has “won” the election. But the very fact that he is even thinking about “reaching across the aisle” to compromise with a political party that is attempting to execute yet another coup d’etat on American soil is unacceptable, and those of us who love this country must make that crystal clear.

No compromise is acceptable, because compromise with usurpers is nothing but surrender.

If we are now in the list-keeping phase of American politics, let’s all keep lists of every Republican we see spending a second of time “reaching across the aisle” and compromising with an illegitimate junta, and vote them all out of office in 2022.

That is all.

Election 2020: A Choice Between a Boss and a Puppet

It was their own version of a Saturday 5k walk. – Trump fans hoping to get into last night’s rally in Nevada had to wait in a line that appeared to stretch from Lake Tahoe to Reno:

The President spoke for two hours to a crowd that had to travel 50 miles away from any city because of the idiotic China Virus restrictions still being enforced by Nevada’s worthless Democrat Governor, Steve Sisolak. Here’s what the scene looked like:

The only aspect of any of it that the corrupt national news media even reported was the fact that most in the crowd weren’t wearing masks. But the same media outlets had no problem whatsoever with this:

Only a handful of the 100 or so rioters were arrested, soon to be turned right back out onto the streets by Bill de Blasio’s no bail law and an utterly corrupt Soros-supported District Attorney. This despite the fact that there was literally no reason whatsoever why every one of them should not have been taken into custody and hauled off.  But that is the state of what the Big Apple calls “policing” today.

Thus, we have the very essence of the Democrat/Media Axis of Propaganda’s turned-on-its-head narrative in which the peaceful attendees of a presidential political rally are “bad” and the violent domestic terrorist rioters are “good.”

The President spoke for two solid hours last night and looked as if he could go on for another two if it weren’t getting so late. He is truly the Paul McCartney of American politics today. Some of the speech was read from a TelePrompter, but just as much of it was Trump speaking extemporaneously.

Meanwhile, his opponent, Creepy Uncle McWifeMolester, who can’t speak for 5 minutes without an intervention from his elder-abusing handlers, spent the day back in his basement, recuperating from his brief trip to New York’s 9/11 memorial on Friday and getting third party campaigning tips from communist Bernie Sanders.

According to media reports based solely on anonymous sources who may or may not actually exist, Sanders is worried that Biden’s gonna lose because he’s just too darn moderate. No, really, I’m not kidding.

Here’s an excerpt from a story at the Washington Post:

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) is privately expressing concerns about Joe Biden’s presidential campaign, according to three people with knowledge of the conversations, and is urging Biden’s team to intensify its focus on pocketbook issues and appeals to liberal voters.

Sanders, the runner-up to Biden in the Democratic primaries, has told associates that Biden is at serious risk of coming up short in the November election if he continues his vaguer, more centrist approach, according to the people, who spoke on the condition of anonymity to describe sensitive talks.

The senator has identified several specific changes he’d like to see, saying Biden should talk more about health care and about his economic plans, and should campaign more with figures popular among young liberals, such as Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.).

[End]

Yeah, that’s the ticket – let’s let Gropey Joe McNastyFinger spend time campaigning with an attractive, 30 year-old woman. It would only be a matter of hours before a prosecutable offense occurred. Or hey, here’s an even better idea: Have him go out on the stump with Ilhan Omar and see how long it takes before the Unfrozen Caveman Candidate is cracking jokes that start with “A priest and a rabbi go into a 7/11 owned by a Somalian…”. It would be a matter of minutes, folks.

The reality in this election is that we have a vital, healthy, supremely energetic incumbent who every week achieves more than his predecessors did during their entire terms in office running against a feeble, fading old pervert who doesn’t know which drawer in the chest is his underwear drawer anymore. We have an incumbent who loves America and Americans running against a challenger who sold his soul to China long ago. We have an incumbent who is in charge of his administration running against a challenger who is led around on a virtual leash by a group of soulless, elder-abusing liars. We have an incumbent who is a boss and a challenger who is a puppet.

That’s what this year’s choice boils down to. It really isn’t complicated.

You want to see something really cool? Here is the Trump motorcade driving down Las Vegas Boulevard at midnight Saturday night:

That’s what a boss looks like.

Wednesday News Roundup: Dems Now Hate Susan B. Anthony and Portland Riots Expand Again

Highlights from the communist Democrat National Covention, Night 2:

  • The featured speaker to the party of the fake #MeToo movement was a man who has been credibly accused as a rapist and pedophile since 1999.
  • Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez spoke for 60 seconds, in the process seconding the nomination of … wait for it … Bernie Sanders as the party’s nominee. Hey, a communist party ought to have a real Commie as its nominee, right?
  • Islamic Jihadist radical Linda Sarsour was given a speaking slot to spew her anti-American, anti-Semitic filth, because of course she was.
  • Sally Yates, a prime participant in the coup d’etat effort to remove President Trump in 2017, spoke to beg the nation to elect Joe Biden so she won’t have to to go prison.
  • Deceased John McCain received the most fitting tribute of his entire political career, having a video of his career narrated by his second wife played at the convention of the one political party to which he had true loyalty.
  • Chuck Schumer spoke, causing any thinking person to feel the need to take a shower after he was done.
  • John Kerry gave a short speech, reminding everyone why we almost lost the country entirely in the 2004 election.
  • And for some reason, Stacey Abrams, the epic loooooser in the 2018 Georgia gubernatorial contest who also lost out on her tireless effort to become Joe Biden’s running mate, was allowed by the party leaders to deliver yet another tedious, utterly dishonest speech in prime time.

I’m really glad my wife and I were streaming Season 2 of Yellowstone.

For those of you still dumb enough to think Joe Biden is somehow a “moderate”… – Watch as Marxist New York Times editorial board member Mara Gay gushes about the “radical” nature of Joe Biden’s policy platform:

Transcript: “You know, I think, what’s funny is that Biden’s platform is actually far more liberal than Barack Obama’s was 12 years ago. So, when we looked at that as an editorial board, we were kind of blown away at how much more similar it is to Bernie Sanders’ platform in some ways than Barack Obama in 2008.”

Any questions?

 

Because the Democrat playbook dictates that Democrats cannot support any action taken by the duly-elected President of the United States of America, this bit of mindless hilarity happened on Tuesday. – You seriously cannot make this stuff up, folks: President Trump issued a full pardon for Susan B. Anthony, hero of the women’s suffrage movement in the late 19th century, on Tuesday, completing an action that 27 of his predecessors had refused to take.

Naturally, the communist Democrats found a way to oppose even that.

New York communist Democrat Lt. Governor Kathy Hochul got the party’s honors, issuing the following factually-incorrect tweet:

The truth, of course, is exactly the opposite of what this communist Democrat says. From a piece at the Federalist:

While Anthony never paid her fine or spent time in jail, Hochul’s claims that were quickly disputed by Twitter users who cited Anthony’s petition to the White House as the reason why she wanted her criminal record overturned.

“She believed she had committed no crime and that her right to vote was protected by the privileges and immunities clause of the 14th amendment. She also petitioned Congress to rescind the fine. She wanted the government to recognize that she had not committed a crime by voting,” replied one Twitter user.

[End]

The President was in fact acting on a petition requesting a pardon that was filed by Ms. Anthony over a century ago, a petition that 27 previous presidents had ignored.

Not content to stop with this depraved bit of stupdity, the communist Democrat activists at the New York Times published a piece excoriating the President’s action and branding the first female whose face appeared on U.S. currency as a racist. No, really, I swear I do not make this stuff up:

She is also an increasingly divisive figure, adopted by anti-abortion forces and criticized for relegating Black suffragists to the sidelines. On Tuesday, Marjorie Dannenfelser, the president of the Susan B. Anthony List, an anti-abortion political group, and Cleta Mitchell, a lawyer who represents conservative groups, were in attendance as Mr. Trump made his announcement.

[End]

Thus does a woman who has for many decades been held up and lauded by the “women’s movement” as a hero now make the transition to a racist bigot who must be destroyed more than a century after her death.

Absolutely breathtaking. The utter depravity of these communist truly knows no bounds.

Meanwhile, in Portland, Oregon… – The riots in this formerly beautiful city raged on for an 82nd straight night, with no visible evidence that the Portland Police Department is making any real effort to contain them.

As always, the only reason we know this is thanks to the ongoing efforts of one real journalist, Andy Ngo:

The rioters have now become so emboldened by the lack of effective resistance from law enforcement that they have taken to advertising their next rioting spots a day in advance:

Absent federal intervention, these riots will only continue to grow in scope and scale, because the communist Democrats in charge of the city want them to do so. It really is that simple.

That is all.

Sunday News Roundup: Portland Riots Get Worse and Fauci Reveals the Truth About a Vaccine

Those loud noises you hear are the sounds of climate alarmist heads exploding. – In his statement rolling out his executive orders on Saturday, President Donald Trump (I till never tire of typing those three glorious words) had the following to say about the “Green New Deal” and its juvenile sponsor, AOC:

“They want to raise everybody’s taxes, everybody, and they want to do the Green New Deal, which will decimate our country and decimate,” Trump said during a press conference at his golf club in Bedminster, New Jersey on Saturday.

“It’s ridiculous, it’s childish. I actually say the Green New Deal is childish. It’s for children, it’s not for adults,” he said, without referring by name to the policy’s key architect, New York Democrat Ocasio-Cortez.

[End]

Fact Check: He’s right.

The “Green New Deal” is in fact a childish and un-serious document, a series of socialist/communist policy proposals from a segment of our society that lives in a fanstasy world and wants to force the rest of us to either live there with them, or – preferably to them – die. Make no mistake about it, these people hate you and would much rather you were dead.

Thanks to President Trump for reminding everyone of that reality.

Speaking of reminders… – here is what societal menace Anthony Fauci had to say about the stupidity of wearing masks back in March:

“Right now, people should not be wearing m…there’s no reason to be walking around with a mask. When you’re in the middle of an outbreak, wearing a mask might make people feel a little bit better, and it might even block a droplet. But it’s not providing the perfect protection that people think that it is. And often, there are unintended consequences: People keep fiddling with the mask, and they keep touching their face.”

By the way, that advice given back in March was completely consistent with the little menace’s position on mask-wearing that he has held for many years. Yet, today, he has suddenly morphed into not only advocating the wearing of masks, but also the wearing of goggles to protect the eyes.

Ask yourself this: What changed? The science didn’t change. The data didn’t change. Just the politics and the priorities of his masters in the Democrat Party. That’s all that changed.

The man is a menace to our entire society.

Oh, hey, speaking of the little menace to society… – After spending the past four months breathlessly touting a miracle vaccine as the only answer to COVID-19, Fauci started walking back the hype:

Oh. You don’t saaaayyyyyy…

From a piece at The Hill:

White House coronavirus advisor Anthony Fauci said public health measures will likely still be needed to keep the coronavirus pandemic under control even with the development of a vaccine as it could end up being effective just half of the time.

“We don’t know yet what the efficacy might be. We don’t know if it will be 50 percent or 60 percent. I’d like it to be 75 percent or more,” Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), said Friday during a webinar hosted by Brown University, according to CNBC.

“But the chances of it being 98 percent effective are not great, which means you must never abandon the public health approach,” he said.

[End]

Ok, so, what he is telling you here is exactly what I’ve been telling you since March: That a COVID-19 vaccine will be just like the annual flu vaccine, i.e., not a “vaccine” at all, but a treatment that is only going to be marginally effective.

Fauci’s final sentence there is very telling, and something he never focuses on because it won’t make him and Bill Gates any money: What we really should be doing as a nation is moving on with our lives and focusing on protecting the most vulnerable among us – the elderly and people with underlying conditions – and developing effective treatments for this virus that save lives of those who catch it.

You know, like Hydroxychloroquine, which Fauci also refuses to endorse since it won’t make him and Bill Gates any money, either.

This man is a menace. Period.

Meanwhile, in Portland… – The riots continued to escalate again last night, their 77th consecutive night without relief. As usual, we only know this through the efforts of real journalist Any Ngo, who risks his well-being every day to report the truth.

The Antifa/BLM threats to residents continue to escalate:

Oh, hey, guess what? The police declared a riot. Again.

Lots of arrests being made. But of course, the local Soros-funded DA just lets them right back out onto the streets:

At this point, it is once again obvious that communist Democrat Governor Kate Brown and communist Mayor Ted Wheeler have no intention of allowing their state and local police to protect the population and shut these rioters down.

These people will not stop until they are stopped. It’s not complicated.

That is all.

Life Will Come at America Very Fast if Biden Wins in November

Will 2021 be 1984? – That’s the question the great Victor Davis Hanson asks in his new piece at American Greatness this morning. Addressing the possibility that the hard left could actually win this year’s election by having AOC and Bernie Sanders serving as the puppeteers pulling the strings of a dementia-afflicted Joe Biden, Hanson takes the reader on a tour of what an America under far leftism would look like very rapidly after Biden’s figurative inauguration.

One of the most compelling passages is Hanson’s likely-accurate vision of how the leftist thugs would hound Biden from office shortly after he assumed it:

If Joe Biden is elected, the effort to remove him by those now supporting him will begin the day after the election and it will not be as crude as rounding up a Yale psychiatrist to testify to his dementia in Congress or shaming the White House physician to give him the Montreal Cognitive Assessment Test in the manner that the Left went after Donald Trump.

It will be far more insidious and successful: leaked stories to the New York Times and Washington Post from empathetic White House insiders will speak of how “heroically” Biden is fighting his inevitable decline—and how gamely he tries to marshal his progressive forces even as his faculties desert him. We would read about why Biden is a national treasure by sacrificing his health to get elected and then nobly bowing out as he realized the cost of his sacrifice on his person and family.

[End]

Can anyone doubt this would be the exact scenario of putting the puppet out to pasture? Look at how the radical leftist Obama holdovers and disloyal RINOs have used constant strategic leaks as a way to damage the Trump presidency, all done without any regard whatsoever of the damage being done to our society in the process. Of course they would do it this way.

Another passage that those of the Jewish faith should all read and take very seriously is this one:

What should we expect then if Biden wins and either steps down or more or less is left as a diminished figurehead controlled by the hard Left?

First, there is one theme that unites “the Squad,” Black Lives Matter, the globalist technocracy, and the international Left: unapologetic anti-Semitism. We will see overt anti-Semitism in a way this country has not seen since the early 20th century, all couched in ideological and politically correct attacks on “Zionists” and “the rich” and “Wall Street”—and why Israel has no business being a “Jewish state.”

It has already begun with an NFL player voicing Hitlerian tropes and praising Louis Farrakhan, and then being seconded by an array of rappers, woke Black Lives Matter activists and “Free Palestine” demonstrations. To smear “the Jews” no longer is grounds for an immediate and expected apology, but more “So what are you going to do about it?” Anti-Semitism is deeply embedded within the DNA of the BLM movement—and professional sports as well, as we saw recently from the warnings of Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and Charles Barkley.

[End]

The Jewish vote has traditionally heavily favored the Democrat Party in the U.S. throughout its history. The reasons for this have always been and remain a complete mystery, especially since the elevation of the rabidly anti-Israel Barack Obama to the presidency in 2009. Jewish leaders in America have stood mute in the face of the brutish Antisemitism being put on display by the leaders of Antifa and BLM. They had better find their voices soon.

Here’s the thing about all of this, folks: Revolutions do not take place gradually. They happen very quickly and brutally. Yes, the Democrat Party has been incrementally instituting socialist policies in our government for the past 100 years, with all the attendant social and economic damage such policies inevitably bring with them. But what we face today from the radical base of the Democrat Party is not mere economic socialism. This is a brutish Marxism fueled by the brainwashing of two generations of college students by the pushers of critical theory on our college campuses and supported by a corrupt news media establishment that is now domination by those true believers.

This reality was illustrated clearly this past week by the flushing of Bari Weiss and Andrew Sullivan from the raw sewage cultures now dominant at the New York Times and New York Magazine. Those events make it crystal clear to anyone paying attention that to today’s revolutionaries, being a mere liberal thinker is not enough: If you do not fully buy into the critical theory teachings that all Jews, all Christians and indeed, all white people are in fact evil beings, then you must be shunned and expelled. Or even worse, should the true believers ever assume the levers of control and power.

In past election that involved leftist radicals like Obama and the Pantsuit Princess, loyal Americans always had the reassurance that the legislative process moves very slowly at the federal level. So long as the GOP controlled at least 41 seats in the Senate, it could use the filibuster as a tool to stop the Democrats’ most radical and violent impulses.

In case you missed it, last week Joe Biden promised to support ending the filibuster should the Democrats take over the senate. The filibuster is merely a senate rule, and can be repealed with a simple majority vote of 50 Democrat senators plus whatever radical Biden chooses to be his vice presidential running mate. So, Chuck Schumer would not even need an actual majority to achieve this goal, which would open the floodgates to all of the economy-and-society-destroying dreams of Bernie and AOC.

Life comes at you fast, folks. If the November elections go the wrong way, it could come at you in a flood like America has never seen before.

Go read Mr. Hanson’s full piece, and take it to heart. Then, share it with everyone you know.

That is all.

Marxist Democrats are Convinced That This is Their Moment

They’re coming for your churches… – As we have repeatedly pointed out, Marxist movements are always anti-Christian and anti-Jewish endeavors.  The current Marxist movement being mounted in America today by the Soros-funded Antifa/Black Lives Matter/Democrat Party alliance is also allied with Islam, which only makes it even more focused on its fervor to destroy other major religious symbols and institutions.

Last weekend, this anti-religious fervor resulted in the highly-suspicious burning of three Christian churches across the country, including a 250 year-old Spanish mission in California. That campaign has continued this week with the desecration of Catholic symbols in various cities in the U.S. and Canada.

From a report by the Daily Caller:

A Catholic church in New Haven, Connecticut, has reported vandalism as attacks on churches continue throughout the U.S.

Pastor John Paul Walker of St. Mary’s Parish, which consists of both St. Mary’s Catholic Church and St. Joseph’s Catholic Church, announced in a Thursday Facebook post that St. Joseph’s Church was vandalized sometime between 9 p.m. Wednesday and 6 a.m. Thursday.

The Archdiocese of Hartford also shared a Facebook post confirming that “a person or group of persons had painted anarchist and satanic symbols on the doors of St. Joseph Church in New Haven.”(RELATED: Statue Of Jesus Vandalized At Catholic Church In Canada)

“This follows an apparent trend of desecrating Catholic spaces throughout the nation, as evidenced by incidents in Chattanooga, Queens, Boston, Sacramento, and Ocala,” the pastor wrote on Facebook. “The underlying motive of these sacrilegious attacks is clear: to intimidate and instill fear in the hearts of those who worship Christ.”

News of the vandalism comes after Fr. Wilbert Chin Jon of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Calgary confirmed to the Daily Caller Thursday that vandals spray painted and used marker or chalk to deface a statue of the Sacred Heart of Jesus at Sacred Heart Church in Calgary, Alberta on Tuesday around 1:30 a.m.

The efforts by Democrat governors like Gavin Newsom, Phil Murphy and Gretchen Whitmer to continue their illegal discrimination against religious freedom only encourages this kind of activity by marginalizing and de-humanizing Christians and Jews, just as Adolph Hitler, Joseph Stalin and Mao Zedong did during the 20th century. The timid response by leaders of those faiths seen thus far only encourages the thugs to double down.

At some point, America’s Christians and Jews will either have to engage in massive civil disobedience or this highly organized and coordinated campaign to marginalize them will only continue to grow.

The same is likely true for the rest of the law-abiding, civilized population as well. It is becoming increasingly obvious that the Marxist Democrats believe this year is their moment to truly transform the country permanently. Everything we are being subjected to by these Democrat governors and mayors related to COVID-19 is all about population control, the destruction of free enterprise, the destruction of wealth, the destruction of real learning in our society, the destruction of social norms and the subjugation of disfavored parts of the population.

Sadly, thanks to the constant peddling of panic porn by the corrupt news media, more and more Republican governors and Mayors are helping them along. Whether they do so knowingly or unwittingly doesn’t matter: Every new lockdown order, every new shutting down of specific classes of businesses, every new limitation on the number of people who can attend church or Synagogue on the Sabbath, every new ordered destruction of thousands of jobs pushes our nation closer and closer to the critical mass needed to elect a new wave of Marxist Democrat true believers with the same mindset of AOC and Ilhan Omar into office.

Every closing of a school and every pretense that “distance learning” can somehow be equally effective as attendance in a classroom and collaboration with friends and fellow students also aids the Marxist cause. A crucial goal of this “revolution” is to destroy any and all sense of community among the people. It is far more easy to control a massive population of frightened and isolated subjects than a community of men and women dedicated to a common cause.

As flawed as our public schools are, that sense of community first develops among the children as they go about learning together, playing sports together, joining clubs together and marching in bands and singing in choirs together. This is why pretty much every other free nation on the face of the earth is moving rapidly to reopening their schools this fall.

The almost rabid focus by the Democrats and their toadies in the corrupt news media on shutting our schools down in the face of all available science arrayed in favor of opening them tells you all you need to know on this subject. Remember: These are the very same Democrats/corrupt journalists who screamed to high heaven when President Trump cancelled U.S. participation in the fraudulent money grab that is the Paris Climate Accord. They told us the world would end when Trump pulled us out of another international consensus – the Iran deal.

We have a global consensus now – backed by all available science and data – that reopening the schools is the thing to do, and now these exact same people contend that America should be alone and isolated and ignore the science on this specific subject.

Think logically about this. There is only one possible reason why they are doing this.

At some point, if these evil Marxists do not relent, freedom loving Americans will either be forced to engage in massive civil disobedience or see our freedoms perish forever. That is the path the Marxist Democrats and their corrupt media toadies are taking us down, willingly and with malice aforethought.

That is all.

The Biden (Sanders/AOC) Climate Plan: Socialism Wrapped in a Green Bow

The Biden (and Sanders and AOC) “Climate” plan is out, and boy is it a doozy. – Make no mistake about this: Joe Biden might be the “nominee” and official face of the Democrat Party in this general election, but the Party has been fully taken over by the party’s radical, outright Marxist wing. At best, Biden is nothing more than a sock puppet; at worst, a willing co-conspirator.

Yesterday’s release by the Biden Campaign’s “unity task force” on climate led by AOC is manifest proof of that reality. The “plan,” such as it is, is written in the soft, soothing language of the radical climate alarmist movement, but its vision is one of pure Soviet-style command-and-control forcing of “change” that is not even technologically feasible, much less financially affordable.

All you really need to know about this plan is who conceived it:

On climate change, the two candidates and their supporters had some serious divides to bridge. Over the course of nine months of primary debates, Biden touted his plan to build 500,000 electric vehicle chargers and put his faith in American exceptionalism while Sanders bashed fossil fuel executives and promoted the Green New Deal. To try to find a middle ground, Sanders appointed Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Sunrise Movement co-founder Varshini Prakash, and Catherine Flowers, the founder of the Center for Rural Enterprise and Environmental Justice, to the joint climate task force. Biden selected former Secretary of State John Kerry, former Environmental Protection Agency administrator Gina McCarthy, and former Biden policy advisor Kerry Duggan, along with two members of Congress.

[End]

Oh. Guess who did most of the writing? That would be Ms. Prakash, a committed radical whose “Sunrise Movement” is just another front group for George Soros:

Prakash wrote about her experience on the task force on Twitter on Wednesday, explaining that she had two goals: to push Biden to increase his ambition on climate change in terms of timelines and benchmarks, and to place environmental and climate justice at the heart of all of Biden’s climate policies.

On Prakash’s first goal, there was certainly some success. Previously, Biden’s climate policies centered around achieving 100 percent clean electricity by 2050. The task force shaved 15 years off that goal. It also came up with a slew of closer, more specific benchmarks: Within five years, make all school buses electric and help spur retrofits of 4 million buildings by unlocking private sector funding and setting efficiency standards, and by 2030, zero out the carbon footprint of all new buildings.

As for Prakash’s second goal, she applauded Biden’s commitment to putting environmental justice at the heart of his climate policy agenda by directing federal funds to disadvantaged communities, ending pollution & toxic waste sites, and creating mitigation strategies and rebuilding from disaster in just and equitable ways.”

“We are leaving these discussions with policies that, if implemented, will make Joe Biden’s climate agenda far more powerful, equitable, and urgent than where his plans were just weeks ago,” she tweeted.

[End]

So, what do you think the term “unlocking private sector funding” means? It means massive new taxes on businesses and the middle class, and those taxes on businesses will all be passed along to consumers, harming the poorest among us the most. Because that’s what leftism in any form always does. What does “directing federal funds” mean? It means redistributing the wealth away from the GOP voter base to the Democrat voter base, because again, that’s what leftism in any form always means.

They’re going to “make all school buses electric” by 2025: Who’s going to foot that bill, to the extent it will be footed with anything other than trillions in new debt? Look in the mirror.

And by the way, the plan itself refers to those electric buses as “zero carbon” vehicles. They aren’t. Not even close.

The average EV is overwhelmingly made of plastics, because that is the lightest-weight material Tesla and other manufacturers have available to reduce the weight of the cars in their efforts to maximize their driving range on a single battery charge. Guess where plastics come from? That nasty old oil. The tires on a Tesla are no different than the tires on a Jaguar or a Ford: Largely made from petroleum products.

Many of the battery charging stations you see in your cities are actually powered by generators fueled by diesel or natural gas, a secret the industry doesn’t like to talk about. The rest are powered by the same electricity grid from which you receive power in your home or office.

What do you think generates that electricity? The answer is power plants. In many states, the majority of that electricity is generated by burning coal. In Texas, where I live, most of the power comes from natural gas power plants, although coal provides a significant amount as well.

So, what is “climate” gain will be seen from spending hundreds of billions of dollars on half a million electric buses? Basically, zero. It  could even end up being a net negative given that we haven’t even talked about all the emissions involved in the manufacture of those buses and the parts that go into them. That all requires the generation of power from some source, and those factories are most often powered from the local electric grid or from separate generators fueled by diesel or natural gas. Most of them also now put up small arrays of prominently-placed solar panels for show.

But understand: None of this is really about the environment or the “climate.” It’s about control. More specifically, it’s about socialism, and using the “climate” as a means of justifying its implementation and full takeover of the federal and state governments in America.

The very same principle applies to every other aspect of the AOC plan that was released yesterday. It is just the “Green New Deal” put into more flowery and obfuscating terms. None of it is even possible from a technological standpoint, and it is certainly not affordable.

But to these central planners, that’s fine, because those aren’t the real goals and objectives at play here.

That is all.

Friday News Roundup: Musk Shames Bezos, Whitmer Shames Herself and de Blasio is Just a Giant Shame

Elon Musk confronts Jeff Bezos: Bezos blinks. – Alex Berenson is a former New York Times reporter who has done yeoman’s work on Twitter exposing all the massive false information that has been spread about the Wuhan Virus by the government and the corrupt news media. His information has been quoted here many times over the past few months.

Berenson has just published a new book exposing these merchants of disinformation, titled “Unreported Truths About COVID-19 and Lockdowns”:

Early yesterday, Amazon blocked Berenson’s book from being marketed on its site, citing non-existent “standards” that it does not apply anywhere else. Basically, Berenson was being blocked because his book does not conform to the propaganda being pushed by China and the WHO.

Berenson complained about it on Twitter, where Musk has obviously been following him. Musk responded by tweeting, “This is insane, @JeffBezos,” and “Time to break up @Amazon. Monopolies are wrong!”

Within a few hours, Amazon suddenly restored Berenson’s book to its platform, and a spokesman lamely explained that it had been block due to an “error.” Yeah, sure.

Generalissimo Gretchen Whitmer again violates her own edicts. – Gretchen Whitmer, the aspiring banana republic dictator and barber-hater who currently serves as Governor in Michigan, has apparently decided that all of her stay-at-home and social distancing nonsense is completely optional.

On Thursday, she made that clear by doing this:

So, if you’re a protester or a looter or a rioter in Michigan, hey, no worries about all that social distancing and staying-at-home stuff! Frau Gretchen was just kidding.

He’s gone full AOC. Not a good look, Joe. – Joe Biden told a group of climate alarmists yesterday that he’s going all-in on the Green New Deal as a means of not just saving the earth, but also to solve all the problems of racial injustice.

No, I’m not kidding. From a report at the Washington Examiner:

In a virtual fundraiser on Thursday afternoon hosted by Climate Leaders for Biden, the former vice president and Democratic presidential candidate said addressing climate change is urgent “not just to stop the earth from warming, but to address the environmental injustices that have left so many low-income people and people of color more vulnerable to the coronavirus, to asthma and other respiratory problems, the effects of pollution,” according to a pool report.

Biden also touched on mass unemployment due to coronavirus pandemic lockdowns, saying that “creating millions, over 10 million good-paying jobs” while investing in clean energy is “an enormous opportunity to rebuild the backbone of this country.”

Addressing “a stimulus to create clean energy jobs that will spur the economic recovery,” Biden said that, “I think that we’re on our way, and we can be on our way to a significant economic recovery, not just to build back but to build back better. Building back what we had before this crisis is not enough.”

“Invest in jobs and the technology of the future,” Biden said. “The clean energy infrastructure is at the very top of the list.”

[End]

This is all Church of Climate Change dogma straight out of the Green New Deal, a collection of mindless shibboleths that have no basis in reality. But hey, Biden himself is out of touch with reality most days, so what else would we expect from him?

He’s under-shooting here. – Biden created a media kerfuffle for himself on Thursday at another event at which he was speaking to minority supporters. From a New York Times Report:

Former Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr. told a group of black supporters on Thursday night that most Americans were good people who think the nation can be improved, while also declaring that “there are probably anywhere from 10 to 15 percent of the people out there that are just not very good people.”

Mr. Biden offered his estimate during remarks in which he spoke about the importance of a president setting a positive example for the nation on racial issues. He accused President Trump of dividing the country while pledging that, as president, he would not.

“The words a president says matter, so when a president stands up and divides people all the time, you’re going to get the worst of us to come out,” Mr. Biden said during the discussion, which was moderated by the actor Don Cheadle.

“Do we really think this is as good as we can be as a nation? I don’t think the vast majority of people think that,” the former vice president said. “There are probably anywhere from 10 to 15 percent of the people out there that are just not very good people, but that’s not who we are. The vast majority of the people are decent, and we have to appeal to that and we have to unite people — bring them together. Bring them together.”

[End]

Naturally, Biden’s critics jumped on the “10 to 15 percent” remark as if it is some sort of “basket of deplorables” moment, but that’s not going to fly. I doubt there is anyone in the United States who doesn’t believe that at least 15% of the population of this or any other country are “just not very good people.” If anything, Biden is underestimating here.

If you’re looking for ways to take Biden’s campaign out, look elsewhere because this cat don’t flush.

Hey, 2/3rds of them voted for the guy. – I found this incident to be highly ironic:

From the Breitbart piece:

The crowd booed New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio (D) during his appearance at Thursdays’s vigil for George Floyd, with some hurling expletives, demanding the Democrat politician to “get the f*ck out of here!”

While Rev. Kevin McCall urged the crowd to treat de Blasio with respect, the mayor did not receive an overwhelmingly warm welcome, as the audience inundated his appearance with boos and shouts of “get the fuck out of here,” “f*ck the mayor’s curfew,” and “shut the f*ck up.” Some reportedly turned their backs to the mayor:

Mayor Bill de Blasio’s speech at the memorial for George Floyd in Brooklyn was met with boos and jeers, despite requests from organizers for the crowd not to do so.

Embedded video

Let’s be honest here: New Yorkers get what they deserve in a mayor. In the 2013 election, they elected this giant Marxist boob over his Republican opponent by a margin of 73% to 24%. When he ran for re-election in 2017, after four years of abject failure and rampant nit-wittery, these same New York City voters gave him another four-year term by a margin of 67% to 28%.

According to NYC law, de Blasio is now term-limited out, but the reality is that if he could run for a third term, the very same people who tried to boo him off the stage on Thursday would overwhelmingly re-elect him again for the simple fact that he would have a “D” next to his name.

There is a word for the process of doing the same stupid thing over and over and over again and expecting a different result. That word is “insanity,” and it perfectly describes the voter of New York City and other major cities that have been controlled by Democrat machine politics for many decades.

That is all.

Negative Crude Oil Prices: Not A Matter For Celebration

The NYMEX price for West Texas Intermediate (WTI) fell into negative territory on Monday, the lowest level ever recorded, and the only real question is why was anyone surprised by this turn of events?

Think about it: As much as we like to talk about renewables and the Green New Deal and all the other pop-culture things, the global economy still runs by and large on oil and natural gas. Demand for oil is entirely dependent on economic growth. As the U.S., China and well over 150 other countries have gone about closing down vast swaths of their economies to try to deal with the COVID-19 pandemic, some are estimating that economic growth in the U.S. for April could be negative 25-30%, and May isn’t looking to be much better.

The result of this negative economic growth has very predictably been a collapse of demand for crude, with some experts again estimating it to be in the negative 25-30% range for April. The consequence of that particular train wreck is that tens of millions of barrels of produced crude with nowhere else to go are flowing into storage facilities in the U.S. and across the globe. Given that the NYMEX price for WTI is set on a forward month futures contract, that negative price we saw on Monday is basically a projection of the market’s belief that U.S. storage will be completely full by May 20.

When that happens, many producers without market leverage will be faced with a choice between shutting in their wells or actually paying someone to take their oil away. We have to remember that wells drilled into some reservoirs can lose pressure and be difficult or impossible to restart once they have been shut-in.

Even worse, that negative price in effect becomes a bleak leading indicator of what traders think the state of the U.S. economy will look like in late May barring drastic changes. Looking at the gradual, staged plans most state governors are now rolling out to govern the reopening of their respective economies, no such drastic changes appear to be in the offing. Thus, we should expect these negative or single-digit prices for WTI to linger for days or even weeks before beginning to recover.

Never Forget the Ghoulish Behavior of the Media and Democrats in this Crisis

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

When America reaches the end of this ongoing CoronaPanic, and we all finally catch our breath long enough to look around at the social and economic devastation we have voluntarily created for ourselves, it is crucial that those of us who value the fragile freedoms passed down to us from previous generations never forget which segments of our society worked so hard to take them away from us. Those segments are obvious, quite transparent in their motivations, and their faces appear on our TV and computer screens each and every day in the form of Democrat politicians and their corrupt toadies in the national news media.

Journalist Alex Berenson, who has become a major voice of truth and reason on Twitter in the past month, produced a great thread yesterday on this subject:

2/ Remember how that @CNN anchor wrote about taking baths? We’ll call it the coronaflu and mock our own panic and in a year or two, once the obvious economic damage has passed, we’ll just shrug and do our best to get back to life…

3/ But we shouldn’t. We all need to remember how we got here, how easily we were stampeded into panic, how we let the media keep us from letting our kids play with each other and drive us into our houses and give up our most essential liberties – in a matter of days

4/ “Those who would give up essential Liberty, to purchase a little temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety.” Those words come from Benjamin Franklin, more than 250 years ago, and they are true now as they were then…

5/ The United States is far from perfect. The Constitution is far from perfect. But it has served us well for a very, very long time, and the way we’ve forgotten it in the last month should shame us all.

[End]

That’s a brilliant summation, and it’s something we all should print out and tape up on our refrigerator doors so we can read it every time we reach in for a glass of water or some cheese to put on a sandwich. As we watch the price for U.S. crude oil drop into negative numbers for the first time in history yesterday, we need to reflect that that is nothing more than a leading indicator of the economic carnage that is taking place all over the country right now.

Leftist talking heads can blather all they want about the wonders of renewables and their Green New Deal fantasy, but the simple fact of the matter is that the engine of the American economy is fueled by oil and gas, and when we intentionally crash that engine, oil and gas are going to crash along with it. Given that the daily NYMEX price is set based on trading for a futures contract 30 days in advance, that negative oil price is telling you right where the U.S. economy is going to be sitting on May 21 unless something drastic changes.

If you doubt my contention about the glee Democrat politicians feel about this intentional crashing of the economy, just take a look at this tweet – later deleted – that Green New Deal poster child Alexandria Ocasio Cortez issued on Monday when she saw oil trading in negative territory:

Image

“You absolutely love to see it.” That’s another document we all need to print and hang in a prominent location, so we can remind ourselves of the collection of soulless ghouls who lead the Democrat Party today. Many like to claim that AOC is “outside the mainstream” of the Democrat Party, but let’s remember that each and every one of the 25 or so Democrat presidential candidates in this cycle happily endorsed her Green New Deal. The truth is that AOC is the mainstream of the Democrat Party.

Given that every capital dollar spent by oil and gas companies creates 3 to 4 dollars in ancillary economic impacts, what AOC is celebrating is a situation that is going to put hundreds of thousands, if not millions of people out of work in the coming months, as oil and gas companies declare bankruptcy and many of the ancillary businesses who depend on them shut their doors. Only a soulless ghoul would feel like popping the cork on a bottle of champagne when she sees something like this taking place.

And realize what AOC just confirmed with that tweet: The situation in America you see laid out before you today is exactly the situation that leftwing radicals like her and her fellow Democrats in congress actively want to create in America their Green New Deal: Depressed car traffic, decimated airlines, a devastated tourism industry, empty hotels, abandoned shopping malls – on and on the economic decimation goes. Add to that a timid, complacent, sedentary and fearful population mostly locked in their homes growing fat and dying young from rampant heart disease, depression, diabetes and suicide.

But hey, the healthcare – if you can find some – will be “free” and our carbon emissions are way down, so isn’t life wonderful? It’s the socialist utopia come true!

Besides, all the leftist politicians like AOC and San Fran Nan are living large, happy in their giant walled-off homes with armed security protection, dining on designer ice cream stored in their dual, $20,000 SubZero units:

If you let yourself forget all the rest of it, all the rest of the devastation these two depraved segments of our society have brought to you over the past couple of months, never forget this single, undeniable fact: These people want nothing more than to keep you cowering inside your homes all the way through November 3, simply so they can win an election. That is literally how their brains are wired.

If we allow ourselves to forget that simple reality, our country is well and truly doomed.

Never forget.

Mitt Romney Wanted to Stand Out Among His Peers – Trump Accommodates Him

The Evening Campaign Update

As President Donald Trump rolls out his administration’s guidelines for Opening America Up Again, only one Republican U.S. senator will not be asked to provide input into the process.

Early Thursday afternoon, the President listed the names of Republican and Democrat members of congress who would be a part of his coronavirus congressional advisory group. That list includes over two dozen Senate and House Democrats, 21 House Republicans and 52 of the 53 Republican Senate members.

The only GOP senator left off the list? Mitt Romney, who not coincidentally was the only GOP senator who made the despicable decision to vote to convict President Trump on one of the two hoax articles of impeachment that the Democrats concocted last fall.

Cool.

Also conspicuously missing from the advisory group roster are the names of Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer, the Democrat leaders in the House and Senate, respectively.

Here are some other notable names you will not find on this roster:

Adam Schiff

Gerrold Nadler

Stenny Hoyer

James Clyburn

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez

Ilhan Omar

Rashida Tlaib

Ayanna Presley

Indeed, not a single member of the Democrat Party’s house or senate leadership teams, or any of the four nitwits who make up the infamous radical leftist “squad” in the House appears on the roster of the advisory group.

Apparently, the President is more interested in getting things done than in dealing with hyper-partisan circus clowns.

The America You See Today is the America Envisioned by the Green New Deal

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

When did Mini-Mike sell Bloomberg News to the ChiCom government? – Here are photos of two headlines running at Bloomberg.com right now:

Image

Shameful.

Yes, doctors and nurses deserve our gratitude and applause. – But not just the doctors and nurses who are fighting to save patients with coronavirus at what appears to be several dozen hospitals around the country that are actually somewhat overwhelmed with COVID-19 cases right now. We should also be concerned about the thousands of doctors and nurses who are seeing their salaries cut back, seeing their working hours docked or being outright laid off right now because thousands of hospitals, clinics and medical practices are basically vacant.

Your corrupt news media, in its ongoing zeal to keep the national panic it created going all the way through the November election, continues to focus pretty much all of its “reporting” on a few hospitals in New York City that happen to be operating at full or over-full capacity. But the reality is that, even in the other large cities around the country, there is only one or perhaps two hospital emergency rooms that are seeing real spikes in activity.

Many of our thousands of other medical facilities have seen their businesses destroyed by counterproductive orders for everyone in America to postpone regular doctor’s appointments and elective surgeries while this pandemic endures. The stay-at-home order has also had the effect of dramatically reducing traffic-related accidents, workplace accidents  and the spreads of the flu, colds and other viral diseases that in most years keep medical facilities occupied and working with full staff.

Before the Wuhan Virus came along, our society had normalized these kinds of maladies and pathologies as just a part of life in a country with a thriving society and prosperous economy. Now that we have destroyed our nation’s economy to fight a virus that was never going to be as deadly as the seasonal flu, we see that hey, if we all just volunteer to lose or homes and livelihoods, we won’t have so many car wrecks! Isn’t that great?

What this has been is a lesson in risks, rewards and tradeoffs. Our national strategy in addressing every other communicable disease to come along in modern times has been to mitigate the risks as best we can and develop effective ways to treat the sick and help them recover. That was exactly the strategy we deployed in 2009/10 with the H1N1 virus, which infected more than 1.4 BILLION people around the globe. Yet, we have shut down the global economy over the last two months to fight the Wuhan Virus, which remains 1,398,700,000 infections short of that number.

I know I’m starting to sound like a broken record on this, but let me remind you one more time that we have invoked this frankly insane strategy based on a statistical model used by Dr. Anthony Fauci that two weeks ago projected as many as 2 million U.S. deaths from Wuhan Virus by September, a week ago projected as many as 240,000, and as of Thursday projected 93,000. If they run that model today, that number will no doubt be dramatically lower still given that the actual observed results on the ground continue to run at less than 40% of what the model has predicted.

Fortunately, President Trump appears to be tiring of allowing Dr. Fauci and his model to destroy the American way of life. On Saturday, he endorsed the idea suggested by Dana Perino of creating a second coronavirus task force that would advise him how to put American back to work as quickly as possible:

The President also continued to tout the use of hydroxychloroquine to fight the Wuhan Virus, given its proven effectiveness all over the world. Despite Fauci’s ongoing efforts to downplay the use of this safe, effective, cheap and well-known drug that won’t make any of Dr. Fauci’s “Big Pharma” buddies rich, the President announced during yesterday’s Coronavirus Task Force update that the federal government was acquiring an initial 29 million doses of the malaria drug to distribute to the many states that are now requesting it.

All of this signals that the President will soon be making the move to start putting America back to work, and get our economy and society on the road to recovery from this media-induced episode of national panic and insanity. I continue to believe he will start the move in that direction after the end of this coming week.

When that time comes, he will need all of our support more than ever, because you can be sure that the outrage coming from the Democrat/Media Propaganda Complex will be the loudest it has ever been. The last month of national shutdown have been literal nirvana for them.

This is exactly the America envisioned by the Soviet-style “Green New Deal” that Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and the Democrat Party rolled out last year: Less than zero economic growth; dramatically less car travel; dramatically less air travel; a dead tourism industry; the lights in Las Vegas turned off; Times Square a ghost town; Disney World dead and gone; beaches empty of everything but the seaweed that flows in with the tide; churches shut down on Palm Sunday; and the American people frightened and cowering in their homes as they wait for their tiny government checks to arrive.

If they can just find a way to shut down voices like yours and mine on the Internet, they would have exactly the America they have been working towards for their entire adult lives.

Donald Trump isn’t going to let them consolidate all of this on a permanent basis, and they will all scream like the stuck pigs they really are when he moves in the next couple of weeks to roll it all back.

Be ready.

That is all.

Friday Follies: NATO, Trump Polls and New York Ventilator Madness

The only real question here is, why? – Readers will be thrilled to know that the country of [checks notes] North Macedonia is now a proud member of the NATO Alliance:

Now, God bless Secretary of State Mike Pompeo – he’s just doing his job here. But let’s be real: The reason why NATO exists is as a mutual protection pact against aggression from Russia. Is the U.S. really prepared to wage war on Russia if it should attack the nation of [checks notes again] North freakin’ Macedonia? Are we really going to expend American lives and treasure in a war to save a country that very few Americans even know exists?

And hell, let’s really get to the point: Why does NATO even really need to exist at all today? Why does the U.S. continue to spend many billions every year to protect Western European nations who are too lazy to provide for their own defense?

Yeah, I know – I’m just spittin’ into the wind here. Let’s move on.

Ventilators? What ventilators? – If you’ve been paying attention over the past two weeks, you have heard the corrupt media, along with New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo and New York City’s buffoon communist Mayor Bill DeBlasio whining to to rafters about NY City hospitals being overwhelmed and not having enough ventilators.

Well, take a look at this:

No photo description available.

That’s right: 2,000 ventilators delivered early this week by FEMA sitting unused in a damn warehouse unused. The reality is that New York politicians are playing the same sleazy game as their counterparts in Puerto Rico played, hiding massive supplies in a warehouse supposedly need to “save lives” in an effort to harm the President politically.

This is dangerous madness, and it needs to stop.

Democrat/media panic explained in two screenshots. – In today’s RealClearPolitics average of polls, President Trump’s approval average is 47.3%. On Election Day, 2016, it was 37.5%.

No photo description available.

No photo description available.

This is why the media and their Democrat masters are in such a wild panic right now. This is why New York Democrat politicians are hiding ventilators in warehouses. This is why Democrat governors in Nevada and Michigan are actively denying their citizens access to hydroxychloroquine, a cheap, safe and plentiful drug that has been proven effective in fighting COVID-19.

This is why we saw these insane displays from Democrat House members on the floor this morning:

TDS is a very real thing, folks. These people and their corrupt media toadies are losing their damn minds. What a spectacle. Somebody pass the popcorn.

A Nation Awaits the Next Democrat/Media-Concocted Hoax

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

Tired of all this WINNING yet? – Apparently, Hollywood is. At last night’s Academy Awards ceremony – which I didn’t even know was happening until about 8:00 in the evening – the voters gave the award for Best Picture to some movie from South Korea. I’m sure it’s a fine movie, at least as far as movies go these days, but wow, the film industry in South Korea is now turning out higher-quality films than the film industry in California? That’s rather a stunning admission for the Academy to make.

Who is this Milton Keynes fellow, and how can we get in touch with him? er, or her? – Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez continues to make news for all the wrong reasons. Last week, she was in the headlines for delivering a rant during which she made it clear that, despite her claimed multiple college degrees from Boston University, she has no idea what a metaphor is. On Sunday, this claimant to a bachelor’s degree in economics said that her, like, totally favorite famed economist and stuff, or something, is, like, that whole Milton Keynes? You know? He’s like totes fleck and stuff, or something.

The problem is, of course, that no one can find any record of any economist named Milton Keynes ever actually living, at least not on earth.

I swear I don’t make this stuff up:

Obviously, the poor dimwitted soul confused the names of John Maynard Keynes and Milton Friedman, both of whom actually are famed economists, and both of whose names AOC likely had to memorize in preparation for a test or two while she was obtaining her obviously worthless “degree” from Boston U. Her handlers need to quit letting her go off-script. Every time she attempts to ad lib something, this is the kind of stuff that happens.

So, what will the next Democrat/media hoax be? Any guesses? – Now that the whole Ukraine/impeachment hoax has come and gone, we are left to wonder what new hoax the Democrats and their corrupt media toadies will devise next. In preparation for this piece, I went back through the last four years and compiled a list of the various hoaxes the Democrat/media propaganda complex has already run against the President.

Thus far, we have had to live through the following:

The Russia Collusion hoax

The Trump is Crazy hoax

The Kavanaugh Nomination hoax

The Charlottesville/”Fine people” hoax

The Porn Star hoax

The Playmate hoax

The Creepy Porn Lawyer hoax

The Emoluments Clause hoax

The Jussie Smollett hoax

The Trump’s a Racist hoax

The Trump is AntiSemitic hoax

The Ukraine/Impeachment hoax

Now, this is most likely not even a comprehensive list – I’m sure I’ve failed to mention several additional hoaxes that our despicable fake news media has worked hand-in-glove with the Democrats to concoct against this President and his Administration. This has been a never-ending, constantly-evolving process that really began as soon as Trump’s campaign was announced way back in 2015.

So, it’s obvious the Democrats have nothing else, which leads to the question: What hoax will they mount next?

San Fran Nan appeared to signal their intentions at the literally insane press conference she gave last Thursday morning in the wake of the Senate vote on acquittal. During that wildly disturbing presser, she mentioned at one point that she thought the President “seemed to be sedated” during his speech. She also spent a great deal of time trying to make the case that the current booming economy was something President Trump inherited from Barack Hussein Obama His Own Self.

Naturally, these statements led to much speculation that the Democrats and their media toadies were about to bring us a new hoax, i.e., the Trump is Drugged hoax. Or maybe they were about to leap off the cliff for good and try to go back and re-litigate the slowest recovery from a recession in U.S. history, which is what really happened during the Obama years, as that administration’s Soviet-style, command-and-control regulatory agenda choked the life out of what might have otherwise become a massive, real economic recovery following the Great Recession.

Oddly, though, there has been almost no followup from either the Democrats or their corrupt media toadies on either front. That could be because there were just too many other relevant news events to cover, as the Democrat Party committed political harikari in Iowa and the Trump Administration just kept on WINNING, bigly.

Or, it could be that Pelosi, who herself very often appears to be drugged – mostly with cheap vodka – was just engaging in a little projection during that press conference. It certainly wouldn’t be the first time that happened.

Or, here’s a thought, it could just be that the Democrats as a party have no idea where to go next, and if they’re lost, then their media toadies are going to be lost, too. That may be why, for the first time in really almost five years, the Democrat/media propaganda complex appears to be dead in the water, without a major hoax currently in play.

Regardless of the reasons behind this pause in hoaxery (I don’t think that’s a word, but I’m going to go with it anyway), we can be sure that it is only temporary. The Democrats have no choice but to keep running hoaxes at this President because they certainly cannot run on their policy record, which is non-existent during this Administration.

Lord knows they can’t leave it to their clown show presidential field to set their Party’s national agenda. The economy-and-society-destroying nonsense being tossed out into the public domain by that collection of radical lunatics, if left out there in a vacuum for the public to consume, would lead to the Democrats’ most crushing electoral disaster since 1984.

So, expect another hoax to start percolating up this week, especially after The Commie wins the New Hampshire primary. The hoaxes we’ve seen thus far have typically been started with an anonymously-sourced hit piece in either the New York Times or the Washington Post, so keep a close eye on those two Democrat propaganda outlets.

We don’t know right now what the hoax will be, but we can be certain that it is coming.

That is all.

AOC: Figures of Speech are Not her Friends

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is not a stupid woman, despite all appearances to the contrary. She is a brilliant propagandist, for example, one of the most effective our country has seen in recent decades. She understands the importance of optics, for the most part, and she understands her core audience and how utterly malleable it is. So, she is not unintelligent, and is certainly a clever manipulator.

But what so often gets her into trouble and gives her an image of stupidity is her magnificent, uncorrupted level of abject ignorance. Despite having somehow obtained a degree in economics from an accredited university, AOC is one of the most uneducated people ever to be elected to the United States Congress. Her utter lack of anything resembling a real and useful education was on stark display yet again on Thursday, when she clearly demonstrated she has no understanding of what a metaphors other forms of figures of speech actually are. Watch this clip and be amazed:

Yes, friends and neighbors, AOC really, truly believes that, when someone advocates that folks “pull themselves up by their bootstraps,” they literally mean that folks need to bend over, grab their bootstraps and try to pull themselves up off the floor.

You seriously could never make this stuff up.

Given yesterday’s revelation in a live congressional hearing, we here at the Campaign Update did a little research and discovered myriad other instances of OAC’s run-ins with figures of speech and the confusion they have caused in her life:

– She’s been looking around for that “ladder to success” for years now. She is sure Home Depot is just hiding it from her.

– She’s pissed as hell that none of those people who say they have “a chip on their shoulder” actually have, like, a chip on their shoulder.

– She has spent her entire adult life trying to find “a stitch in time” so she can “make nine.” But she’s been wondering, “nine what?”

– She once put her shoulder to a grindstone and skinned it all up. Then she tried it with her nose and had to get surgery.

– She thinks “beating a dead horse” amounts to, like, animal cruelty and stuff, or something.

– Someone once told her that it “costs and arm and a leg,” and she asked if she could just use a credit card instead?

– She just cannot believe that teeth have skin, and spends hours each day looking in the mirror to make sure hers don’t.

– She once tried the whole “rags to riches” thing, and just ended up with a bedroom filled with rags.

– She is STILL looking for that gift horse so she can look it in the mouth. I mean, like, what’s that all about anyway?

– She heard that cats had nine lives, but when she killed her own cat just to see, it stayed dead. That made her sad.

– But then someone told her it was “raining cats and dogs,” so she ran outside and got soaked desperately searching for another kitten.

This could go on and on, but you hopefully get the point by now.
She doesn’t, though.

That is all.

Edit: A couple more, inspired by readers:

– She has a step-ladder. She never knew who her real ladder is.

– Don’t ever say “bottoms up!” to her in a bar, unless you want things to get real.

The Democrat Party is in Need of an Old-Fashioned Purge

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

Guest Piece by Gregg Updike

The fundamental problem with the Democratic Party is that for decades they have been actively recruiting every disparate minority group they can find or create – most of whom have an axe to grind – and have tried to cobble together a majority of minorities as a means to win elections against America’s white majority. There was an article in a major newspaper, circa 2011, during the “One’s” ramp up for reelection in 2012 reflecting this strategy.

The DNC, Obama, and the MSM, after successfully guilting white America into voting for a “historic” (half) Black president who was “articulate and bright and clean”, realized they were in trouble after they overwhelmingly lost the House in 2010.  This was the direct result of ramming his unpopular and entirely partisan passed Obamacare down America’s collective throat, and resulted in the emergence of the TEA (Taxed Enough Already) Party, and other anti-Obama organizations.

Obama, having lost much of the warm and fuzzy good-will that swept him into the presidency, and political capital, made the decision to jettison the idea of appealing to the country’s white majority middle class (the people who Hillary Clinton would later describe as an “irredeemable basket of deplorables”).  The Dems essentially said they are no longer interested in, nor will they any longer court the white male blue-collar union base that was the strength of the Dem party since FDR.   Presently the Democratic coalition is a motley collection of diverse (root word of diverse is divide) groups which has no core unifying glue or message to hold it together except that Trump and Republicans suck, and must be politically defeated.

This cultivated strategy is beginning to backfire on them in a spectacular manner.  Their radical groups are not silent obedient toadies and actually want their point of view heard, respected, and acted upon.  Unfortunately for the Dems, many of these points of view are diametrically opposed to each other.  Examples: Muslims are vehemently opposed to homosexually, legal immigrants and naturalized citizens are opposed to illegals getting a free ride, and big banks and capitalism are lined up against Bernie’s communism.

Meanwhile, President Trump, by displaying heretofore unseen strong common sense leadership, has exposed the fraud of the Democratic Party for all to see.  He has successfully exposed them, his agenda has been beneficial for ALL Americans, and he is destroying their media and academia controlled PC thought police monopoly.  That is why he is so hated by the left and the never-Trumper Republicans, and why they are working so hard to sabotage his administration and remove him from office, or make him unelectable.  It has completely failed and made Trump’s reelection all but certain, especially when his potential opponents are considered.

Bottom line: The person who could unite the Democratic Party simply doesn’t exist, while Trump has been historically successful in uniting his Republican base and attracting many previously Democratic minority groups who have realized they have been used by the Democratic Party and are #Walk(ing) Away in large numbers.  Consequently the DNC finds itself in quite a pickle.

If I were running the DNC, I would do the following:

Let Sanders win the nomination and then suffer a 1972 McGovern-like defeat, along with massive down ballot losses, thereby forcing the radical communists out of the party – we gave you a legitimate shot and you lost bigly; now be gone and go back the Communist Party USA and be the 3% irrelevant population splinter group that you are and have always been.

(The GOP suffered massive losses in 1974 and 1976 in the wake of Nixon’s Watergate, but rebounded by 1980 with Ronald Reagan and his coattails.  Face reality, take your lumps, learn, and move on.)

Get rid of the Clintons and their toxic influence in the party.

Divorce your party from the idiotic Hollywood crowd – their influence is waning and they are every bit as toxic as the Clintons.

Purge the party of all the old fossilized war horses who appeal to no one, particularly the millennials.  This election will help in their retirements by securing long term minority status for the Democratic Party. It is not fun to be in the minority in congress and the old guard will get out while the getting is good and retire with their millions.

Find and recruit some moderate, pragmatic, appealing, and intelligent candidates who fundamentally see the good in America as founded, and run on and actually believe in a positive pro-America agenda, as John F. Kennedy did in his 1960 campaign.

While most of the congressional old guard will willingly leave once they realize their minority party status for the foreseeable future is a reality, the young radical activists in the “Squad” and other divisive factions will need to be primaried or relegated to impotence with minor committee assignments and have their campaigns defunded by the DNC.

I realize leaders of the Democratic Party will never do this, and thus they will become more and more irrelevant, which is a good thing for America.  I predict the Democratic Party brand will be irreparably damaged, and break up.  When that happens, a new party will emerge with new leadership and a new message.  It will no doubt be liberal, but it will be, at least at first, a reasonable counter to a more conservative Republican Party; a Republican Party which will also be forced to undergo its own metamorphosis and evolve into a genuine conservative party.

The media will also be forced to reform itself, or it will ultimately die with a viewership of only about ten percent of the country watching or believing them.  Sooner or later, the outside money propping them up will dry up and they will have to compete for advertising dollars by being truthful and “fair and balanced”.  To that end NPR and NPT should be defunded as they are obsolete, serve no purpose and need to be forced to stand on their own merits; taxpayers don’t need to be forced to fund a liberal-lite mouthpiece that has a smaller audience than CNN.

 

That is all.

Three Weeks to Iowa: The State of the Democrat Clown Show

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

What will we do without Marianne Williamson in the race? – The new age guru – whatever that actually means – and fantastic dancer and debater ended her doomed-to-fail campaign on Friday, and hardly anyone noticed. Kind of like when radical Texan Julian Castro ended his campaign back in late December…or maybe it was early January, I forget which and don’t care enough to go look it up.

So, the protected minority candidates keep on dropping out and the pasty old geriatric white males keep movin’ on up in the Democrat field.  How old is the Democrat field? Take a look at this photo:

That’s former Nebraska Senator Bob Kerrey. Sen. Kerrey is a Medal of Honor winner who was briefly a leading Democrat candidate for the party’s 1992 nomination, which was of course ultimately won lifelong fraud Bill Clinton. Because of course it was.

That was 28 years ago, when Kerrey was 49 years old. Today, 28 years and 7 presidential election cycles later, Kerrey is still younger than 3 of the 5 leading contenders for the Party’s 2020 nomination. This is your Democrat Party, circa 2020.

The leader in the national polls in the race to see who will lose miserably to President Donald Trump in November remains the nation’s Unfrozen Caveman Senator, Quid Pro Joe Biden. This is a guy who just secured the endorsement of Eric Garcetti, the Mayor of Los Angeles, on a day when he thought for sure he was in Toledo, Ohio.

Joe Biden is so old that he first got elected to the U.S. Senate around the time that Jimmy Hoffa was murdered by the mob. Interestingly, if you watched the 3 and a half-hour film “The Irishman” recently and thought it was overly-long, consider this: The film’s executive producer and director, Martin Scorsese, decided to leave out the part of the biographical book it is based upon (“I Heard You Paint Houses” by Charles Brandt) that details how the same mob figure, Frank Sheeran, who claims to have killed Hoffa actually also says that he helped Biden win that first Senate campaign in 1972.

Yeah, there’s a whole chapter about that in the book, which I read in 2018, long before this film came about. Sheeran claims that the mob-controlled truckers union refused to deliver newspapers in Delaware containing full-page ads for Biden’s opponent, incumbent Republican J. Caleb Boggs, during the weeks leading up to that election day in 1972. Biden ended up winning that Delaware senate race by just 3,200 votes.

Hey, Biden always said he was a union guy!

Isn’t it interesting that the makers of a film as long as “The Godfather” decided to cut that chapter out of all the chapters in the book? But hey, that’s how the incestuous Democrat/Hollywood alliance works. Just ask Harvey Weinstein and Kevin Spacey and all the supposedly abused actors and actresses who offered them both so much public praise over the last 25 years and have now gone silent about them.

So, there he is, ladies and gentlemen: Joe Biden, your leader in the Democrat race. This 77 year-old likely dementia-sufferer is the guy who the similarly demented Democrat voter base thinks is the most “electable” person in the field. Whew.

Next up is the even-older-than-Biden Commie, Bernie Sanders, who is running a fairly strong second in the national polls but leading now in both Iowa and New Hampshire. Oh, golly, think of the momentum the Commie will generate should he win both of those early contests. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez will be all like, totes excited and stuff, or something, should that happen.

Sanders’ big problem is that he just has a very low ceiling, with his main appeal being to the least reliable and most ignorant voters in the Democrat base: College students. The Commie’s support drops off dramatically as you go up the voter age chart, and the old folks are the most reliable voters in the country. Still, with the Democrats’ new system of proportionally rewarding delegates in each primary contest, the Commie remains a real threat to accumulate a lot of delegates, just as he did in 2016.

Then you have Fauxcahontas, clearly the single most blatant life-long fraud in the race, which I keep thinking means she will ultimately end up winning it. Little Princess Gonna Take All Your Wampum had a significant boomlet during August and September, but ended up fading during the final three months of 2019 as she struggled to explain how she might pay for her $40 trillion “Medicare for all” scheme without raising taxes on anyone with less money than multi-billionaires Mike Bloomberg and Tom Steyer.

But she finally ended up landing on a talking point that basically says “hey, just trust me on this, since you know I’ve lied to you about every aspect of my personal life.” Which naturally worked with the demented Democrat voter base. So now she appears to be making a little comeback, polling second ahead of the Commie in the most recent national poll from Economist/YouGov, just 5 points behind Creepy Uncle Joe. I still think Warren, as the most obvious complete fraud in the race, is the most likely nominee here barring the entry of some other candidate, like Hillary Clinton, not currently in the race.

After those top 3, you have two more pasty white guys: Preacher Pete Buttigieg and Mr. Excitement, Mike Bloomberg.

Let’s be honest about Preacher Pete, shall we? He is not going anywhere in this race, and by that I mean he is not going anywhere outside of his 6-8% polling range in which he has been stuck since last June. No matter how much fawning press he receives, no matter how many bible verses he misquotes, no matter how many free, 2-hour-long town hall shows CNN gives him, this is where Preacher Pete is stuck, at least in the national polling. That is the extent of his national appeal.

He’s doing better than that in Iowa and New Hampshire, the two tiny states packed with self-loathing white middle-class socialist voters that lead things off. Preacher Pete might be able to crest that 15% minimum threshold required to be awarded some delegates in those two states. After that, his prospects quickly become paper-thin.

Mr. Excitement, meanwhile, has now spent over $200 million of his own money on this campaign to get himself up to about 6% in the national polls, just behind the Preacher. This is what Warren Buffet and the folks at Goldman Sachs would likely refer to as a “crappy investment,” but Bloomberg seems undeterred, having just shelled out another $10 million for a one-minute ad during the upcoming Super Bowl.

Mr. Excitement’s problems in this race are myriad, but the main one is that he is simply too genuine to appeal to enough demented Democrat voters to secure the nomination: Too genuinely short; too genuinely boring; too genuinely soft-spoken; too genuinely not prone to blatant lies about his background and family; too genuinely dedicated to banning 32 oz. soft drinks and cow farts.

This man clearly did not do his homework before entering this race – if he had, he would know that every Democrat presidential nomination since 1976 has been awarded by the Party’s demented voters to the single biggest lifelong fraud in the race. Plus, if he ever does manage to qualify for one of the monthly debates, he will simply bore the country to death. Mr. Excitement will not be the nominee.

After those five, the only other candidate in the race worth mentioning is Amy Klobuchar, who is polling fairly well in Iowa and New Hampshire. But “fairly well” means about 6%, and you have to win 15% of the actual vote to win any delegates. The chances of her breaking through with a truly strong finish in either state are basically nil, and the smart money is on her dropping out of the race after New Hampshire has come and gone.

Complicating all of this, of course, is that three of those six candidates mentioned – along with Cory Booker, another minority candidate who is going nowhere – are members of the U.S. Senate. They’re all about to have the privilege of spending virtually all of the rest of January sitting quietly in the Senate chamber for 10 hours a day, 6 days a week during the upcoming “trial” of President Trump. They have San Fran Nan to thank for that, since she’s the one who set up the timetable for all of this.

While the Commie and Fauxcahontas seem to be running strong in Iowa and New Hampshire now, what do you think will happen to their polling numbers when they disappear from those states for the 3 weeks leading up to the Iowa Caucuses?

Man, it’s almost as if San Fran Nan did this all intentionally to help Quid Pro Joe, isn’t it?

Bottom line: The more time goes on, the more likely an open convention becomes for this pathetic, despicable and disloyal political party.

Considering all of these factors and more that I don’t have time to detail here, these are my current odds on the ultimate winner of the Democrat 2020 presidential nomination:

Someone not currently in the race: EVEN

Fauxcahontas: 5 to 2

Biden: 3 to 1

The Commie: 5 to 1

Bloomberg: 20 to 1

Buttigieg: 100 to 1

The field: 1,000 to 1

 

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.

Woman Takes Green New Deal to Logical Conclusion, AOC Doesn’t Even Blink

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

“Eat the babies” is trending on Twitter this morning. You’ll never guess why. Ok, maybe you will. – In case you were not already aware that climate extremists are brainwashed religious cultists with severe mental and emotional issues, check out this clip from Wednesday evening’s town hall meeting in Corona, New York, hosted by Democrat organ grinder monkey Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez:

In case you can’t understand everything the woman is saying through her heavy accent – which might be real or could be feigned – here is a transcript of her wild remarks:

“We not gonna be here for much longer, ’cause of the climate crisis. We only have a few months left! I love that you support the Green Deal but it’s not, but it’s not gonna, getting rid of fossil fuel is not gonna solve the problem fast enough! A Swedish professor saying we can eat dead people [takes off jacket] but that’s not fast enough! So I think your next campaign slogan has to be this, “We got to start eating babies!” We don’t have enough time! There’s too much CO2! All of you, you, you a pollutant! Too much CO2! We have to start now. Please, you are so great, I’m so happy you are supporting New Green Deal, but it’s not enough, you know. Even if we would bomb Russia, we still have too many people, too much pollution! So we have to get rid. of. the babies! That the big problem – just stop having babies is not enough! We need to eat the babies! And this is very serious, please give a response!”

Now, this person clearly is either a complete lunatic who is a danger to herself and everyone around her, or she is one of the greatest political pranksters of all time. Either way, any rational, thoughtful individual who values human life would have this person escorted by security out of the meeting and asked to leave the premises. That is certainly what any Republican member of congress would do, and rightfully so.

But not AOC, who herself is an utterly irrational, brainwashed climate lunatic. Watch the clip again and observe how the dead-eyed congresswoman is actually empathizing with this woman as she goes through her deranged rant. Watch how AOC nods her head in agreement as the woman repeatedly advocates for eating babies as a means of reducing CO2 – the very foundation for life on Planet Earth – in the atmosphere.

Then listen how AOC responds once the woman is done. Listen as she expresses neither condemnation nor abhorrence at the repulsive concept of actually consuming human children for breakfast, lunch and/or dinner. If you have trouble hearing the conversation, here is an exact transcript of AOC’s response:

“Thank you, thank you. We’ll go ahead [crazy woman interrupts] No, we’ll go ahead. Thank you. So, I think [woman interrupts again] Yeah, no, so, um, one of the things that’s very important to us is that we need to treat the climate crisis with the urgency that it does present. Um, luckily we have more than a few months. We do need to hit net zero [CO2 emissions] in several years, but I think we all need to, to, to understand that there are a lot of solutions we have, um, that we can pursue, and that if we act in a positive way there is space for hope.”

Oh, ok. So, given that we have more than a “few months” to do, no one knows what, exactly and AOC isn’t saying, we don’t need to start eating the babies…yet. Because, hey, there are a lot of “solutions” we can pursue, other than, presumably, eating the babies. And every one of those “solutions” involves Soviet-style programs designed to deprive you, the common people of America, of things you take for granted in your daily lives today.

You know, things like cars, and meat, and air travel, and straws, and mobility, and grocery stores whose shelves are stocked with food items. No more gas stoves, no more warm homes in the cold winters. No more reliable electricity, especially when the wind stops blowing and the skies grow cloudy. Those vacations you like to take? No more of that, you human pollutant, you!

Oh, and those TVs, computers and cell phones will all have to go, too, since they all contain many, many parts that are made from plastics, which are derived from petroleum. You know, that dirty “fossil fuel” that has been responsible for global prosperity for the last 120 years or so.

Ditto those fancy tennis shoes you like to wear and the backpacks you use to carry all your stuff around in, for the same reason. Toothpaste? You have to give that up to the jack-booted thugs who will come to your home to confiscate all the bad items you own. Same with your makeup, ladies and odd gentlemen – it’s made with the bad stuff, too.

No, in AOC’s world, we don’t have to “eat the babies” just yet, at least, not until you’ve surrendered all of those things and many, many, oh, so many more. Once you’ve done all of that, and the fake climate “scientists” have gauged the impacts of your living an 18th-century lifestyle on the climate, then and only then will we have to decide whether we need to start eating the babies if AOC has her way.

Call it the “final solution” of the Global Church of Climate Change.

Again, this woman is either as straight-up insane as AOC is, or she just pulled off one of the great political pranks of all-time. Either way, what she did at that town hall  was to simply take the ghoulish logic of climate extremism to its inescapable conclusion.

And AOC, the poster child for climate extremism in America, didn’t really even blink.

These people are ghouls.

That is all.

The D. C. Swamp Strikes Back! Ratcliffe Out…Hoekstra In?

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

Tired of all this #Winning yet? – Another month, another sterling jobs report. The private sector beat “expert” expectations yet again by adding 164,000 new jobs during the month of July, finishing the month with an all-time record 157,288,000 Americans gainfully employed. Even more encouraging is the fact that almost 400,000 Americans moved from the part-time jobs that characterized the Obama economy to the good-paying full-time jobs that are the centerpiece of the Trump economy. This truly never, ever gets old.

She’s gonna need some new script-writers. – The Chief of Staff and Communications Director for Anti-Semite Democrat Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez both resigned late on Friday under ongoing pressure from San Fran Nan and her house leadership goons.

The two Alinskyite lunatics, whose names I’m not going to specify on this site (AOC’s is enough work to expend on these garbage people for one morning) had come under fire last month after the Chief of Staff had accused Pelosi of “singling out women of color” and a referred to non-Marxist Democrats as segregationists.

Both men came to AOC from the despicable “Justice Democrats”, the group that supplies the fake congresswoman with her daily scripts. Their vacant positions will no doubt be filled with more staffers who have been trained by that anti-American Alinskyite group. As we have repeatedly seen, AOC is utterly helpless and sounds like a slow-learning 4th-grader whenever she attempts to speak without reciting from those daily scripts, so an injection of new blood from that group is essential for her continuing charade.

The Swamp Strikes Back! – D.C. Swamp rats from both political parties have won the first parry in the battle to replace the fired Dan Coats as the new Director of the Office of National Intelligence. Texas Congressman John Ratcliffe withdrew his name from consideration for the post yesterday amid a growing slime campaign in the national fake news media and ongoing behind-the-scenes opposition from GOP swamp rats like North Carolina Senator Richard Burr.

The Swamp Rats are now pushing hard to convince President Trump to nominate Coats’s Swampy Deputy, Sue Gordon, to become the new acting director when Coats leaves the post on August 15. Gordon has received endorsement tweets from an array of Deep State Usual Suspects in recent days, including Adam Schiff, John Brennan, James Comey and Rod Rosenstein, so you know she is someone who would do everything she can to block efforts to get at the cabal who attempted to fix the 2016 election and then tried to execute a coup d’etat throughout 2017 and 2018.

The fake news media is of course mounting a focused campaign to pressure the President to appoint Gordon to the post on a permanent basis. If he does that, then you can forget about any meaningful declassification of key documents taking place, as Gordon would be able to use her post as a roadblock.

The problem the President has is that the Swamp has now laid down its marker related to this crucial position as a hill on which it is willing to die, and there are half a dozen or more fake Republicans like Burr who are willing to help lead that battle. So, in order to get anyone confirmed in the Senate, where the Republicans hold a 53-47 majority, he is going to have to nominate someone with credentials that include experience in or around the nation’s seamy intelligence community.

The good news there is that the Wall Street Journal reported late Friday evening that Mr. Trump is considering former Michigan Congressman and current U.S. Ambassador to The Netherlands Pete Hoekstra as his next nominee for the post. How would Hoekstra fit the Swamp’s criteria? Well, as an early Trump supporter during the 2016 campaign, he wouldn’t.

But here’s the thing: Hoekstra is a former Chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, a post he held from 2004 through 2007. That little item on his resume would rob the Deep State hacks of the argument – which they used against Ratcliffe this week – that he lacks an understanding of the nation’s intelligence operations.

Hoekstra not only understands those operations, as former Chairman of that committee, he knows where all the bodies are buried. Nominating Hoekstra might be another Trump masterstroke.

As President Trump likes to say, we’ll just have to wait and see what happens.

That is all.

The Week in Review: WINNING. Sooooo Much Winning.

The Campaign Update Week in Review
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Tired of all this #WINNING yet? – Late Friday evening, the U.S. Supreme Court reversed the absurd lower court ruling by an Obama-appointed judge denying the President his clear constitutional authority to redirect unused funds from the military budget towards the building of the wall along our southern border. Let us never forget that the building of that wall was fully authorized by the U.S. Congress during both the Bush and Obama administrations, and those bi-partisan bills were signed into law by those two ex-presidents.

For now, $2.5 billion in funding is freed-up to begin construction on at least 100 miles of new border wall, although the ACLU, in its never-ending efforts to obstruct everything the Trump Administration does, vowed to move to accelerate a separate case it has pending before the ever-reliable 9th Circuit Court of Appeals. Thus, the shameful, un-American Lawfare effort set up by the Obama Administration in its waning days will continue in this case.

Tired of all this WINNING yet? Part II. – It has been a week of extraordinary WINNING for President Donald Trump and his administration. Soooooo much winning that it’s seriously hard to know where to begin. Let’s look at a few of the more notable items, starting with the most obvious:

The Mueller Witch Hunt is now officially over and dead. – Try as the Democrats and fake news media might to pretend otherwise, Robert Mueller’s moribund, doddering appearance before two kangaroo court congressional committees this week ended any thought that his despicable investigation would provide some sort of roadmap to impeachment, as the DC Swamp had hoped it might. Oh, the Democrats will continue to pound on their lost arguments over “obstruction” and “collusion”, but those arguments have always been false and Mueller’s two-year effort failed to provide them any foundation in reality.

Because our news media is such a Dumpster Fire of Fake, it takes the public awhile to catch on, but a clear majority now are sick and tired of the entire charade and the needle continues to move in the direction of truth. So this ugly chapter in our nation’s history – brought to us by the Democrat Party and its media toadies – is effectively over.

New record highs in the stock markets. – Despite the best efforts of the swamp snakes at the Fed to hold the economy down, this week saw a renewed surge in corporate earnings across the breadth and depth of the U.S. economy. That surge led to the setting of yet more record highs in all of the major stock indexes, benefiting the various types of retirement funds held by tens of millions of ordinary Americans.

Economic growth beat expectations. – Although it came in at an Obama-like 2.1%, U.S. GDP growth for the second quarter beat “expert” expectations by a significant margin, and the economy appears to be resurging after a slow April and May.

Cop abuse videos from New York City go viral. – As Democrat/Communist Mayor Bill DeBlasio runs around the country pursuing a vanity campaign for president, a series of videos emerged this week showing gangs of thugs in his city pelting police officers with water balloons, buckets of water and other objects, humiliating them as they cower and retreat in compliance with the Mayor’s orders. This idiotic, disgusting policy will inevitably lead to more and more aggression until police officers begin to be seriously injured or even killed. It is a repugnant display of cowardice and horrific leadership brought to America purely by Democrats.

The Squad is now fully in control of the House Democrat Caucus. – As her final action before fleeing the nation’s capital for her 6-week “August recess” (I’m old enough to remember when August only contained a little over 4 weeks) Pelosi felt compelled to hold a special meeting with the leader of The Squad, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. That meeting produced this cringe-inducing image, as Pelosi’s pasted-on smile looks to be on the verge of melting off her plasticized face:

Image result for pelosi meets with aoc

Seriously, which one of these women appears to be actually happy, and which appears to be ready to claw the other one’s eyes out?  This is not a trick question. Having AOC and the other three raging anti-Semite Squad members fully in control of the House Democrat caucus is political nirvana for Donald Trump. These four spoiled, attention-seeking children’s antics will provide the President with a never-ending flow of fodder to toss back at the Democrats throughout his re-election campaign.

Bottom line: After the November, 2020 elections have come and gone, the President has been easily re-elected, and the GOP controls large majorities in both houses of congress, we will look back on this fourth week in July, 2019 as the week the tide fully turned.

The week was that good.

That is all.

With Just Two Tweets, Trump Puts The Squad in Full Control of the Democrat Party

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

Man, you go on vacation and all hell breaks loose. – Seriously, it happens every time. Of course, we are in the age of President Donald Trump, so all hell breaks loose pretty much every day. But most of the time, there is a method to the President’s madness, and this time is no exception. It’s important that we all understand it.

Basically, as of Tuesday, President Trump put The Squad in full and complete control of the Democrat Party. The Squad is pictured here:

These four vicious, racist, anti-Semitic, anti-American scumbags now control the U.S. House of Representatives. They are now fully identified in the public’s mind as the face of the national Democrat Party. When they go to the polls next year, American voters will have images of these four sneering anti-American bigots at the front of their minds as what and who they will be voting for if they vote for Democrat candidates.

Yeah, the Democrat ticket will have someone like Kamala Harris or Fauxcahontas or someone not yet in the race at the top, but a vote for any Democrat for any office just became a vote for the policy choices and political thuggery represented by the four brutish women pictured above.

Trump’s Sunday morning tweets were no accident, and they did this.  Coming just at a time in which many Democrat office-holders were waking up to the threat The Squad represents to their Party and were beginning to condemn the four thugs, those tweets created the single greatest virtue-signaling frenzy in American history. As literally every left-leaning white male and female in the nation rushed to get onto Twitter and Facebook and improperly label the tweets as “racist” (they aren’t), all of those almost-woke Democrat officeholders now had no alternative but to line up, log-in and signal some damn virtue of their own.

As a result, the Democrat Party is now unalterably entangled with the jack-booted, bigoted, Pol Pot-like policies being pursued by The squad. The 2020 elections will now be a referendum on those policies, and they will not go well for the Democrats or their new leaders.

This new ad from the RNC gives you a preview of how it’s all going to play out:

 

Genius.  Now, back to my vacation.

The Week in Review: Democrats Gone Wild!

The Campaign Update Week in Review
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

[Editor’s Note: The Campaign Update will be silent from July 11 through July 23 because Dave needs some down time.]

It’s hard to imagine how the week just past could have gone any worse for America’s Democrat Party, i.e., the Party of Antifa, the Party of AOC, the Party of Socialism, the Party of open borders, the Party of Creepy Uncle Joe and The Commie and Fauxcahontas and rioting and flag-burning and lying fake news media and protesting celebrations of America’s Independence Day.

Seriously, when the three most lasting images of the week are of Antifa rioters assaulting dozens of innocent Americans in Portland and Washington, DC, leftist protesters burning the American flag on July 4, and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez lying relentlessly about things she did not actually see or do on a trip to the U.S./Mexico border, your party is having a week to forget.

The week began horribly for the Dems, as President Donald Trump made history by becoming the first U.S. president to walk across the DMZ into North Korea. Despite the best efforts of the media to suppress them, the images of that historic moment for peace went viral all over social media for the next several days. All grumpy Democrats could do was whine about the meeting somehow legitimizing the Crazy Little Fat Guy, but in reality, all that did in the public’s mind was make the Dems sound like a bunch of, well, grumps.

The early week festivities continued with Irish Bob O’Rourke, so desperate over his failure to attract votes in the United States, going across the border into Mexico to campaign instead. There, Mexican citizens no doubt made much fun of the freakish, arm-waving yankee.

Oh, but it just got better on the border, folks, much better – if you aren’t a Democrat, that is. Cory Spartacus Booker, seeing Irish Bob’s stunt as a challenge, decided it would be a great thing for him to go down to the border and break all sorts of U.S. laws by personally escorting illegal aliens into the United States. While Spartacus was no doubt duly impressed with his own self, few actual Americans noticed, and fewer still were similarly impressed.

Not to be outdone, AOC, partly participating in a tour of a detention facility in Clint, Texas with 13 fellow Democrat demagogues, caused an uproar, which is her only true core competency. She began screaming at U.S. Customs and Border Patrol personnel as soon as she entered the facility, then refused to participate in the tour, choosing instead to park herself in a holding area as the rest of the group went through the building. She then posted a series of abject lies on her Twitter feed, pretending to have actually toured the facility. Her supporters went nuts – which is also the only thing they’re any good at doing – and it took two days for the truth to actually filter out, by which time the actress AOC had moved on to her next performance.

AOC’s week ended with San Fran Nan throwing her under the bus in a fawining, softball interview with the terminally smarmy Maureen Dowd in the New York Times.

Oof.

Creepy Uncle Joe Biden spent the entire week clarifying, apologizing, and lashing out at his tormentors as he watched his standing in the various polls fade, as it inevitably must. By the end of the week, two separate polls had his once-grand 20+ point lead over the field sitting at just 2% ahead of the opportunistic Kamala Harris. Biden’s faithful army of fake media defenders were left only to brag about his “huge” fundraising haul of $21 million for the second quarter of the year, always forgetting to point out that President Trump raised $24 million in the first 24 hours after he formally announced his candidacy.

Ouch.

Then came July 4, and the wonderful celebration of America’s Independence planned and staged by your President, Donald J. Trump. The Dems and their media hacks had spent the entire week slamming the entire thing as just another Trump campaign event, but any American who actually watched the festivities and failed to be inspired by it is most likely, well, a Democrat. Everyone else thought it was wonderful.

While ordinary Americans were celebrating their wonderful nation, Democrats all across the country were burning flags and assaulting other Americans. Meanwhile, their presidential candidates, all of whom had spent the week slamming the President for presumably “politicizing” Independence Day, spent July 4th at campaign events where they slammed the President and politicized Independence Day.

You seriously can’t make this stuff up, folks.

There was a raft of great news for America and Americans this week, and great news for America and Americans was, as always, terrible news for the Democrat Party. The stock market reached new all-time highs during the week for about the 65,000th time in the Trump presidency, throwing Morning Joe and the editorial board at the New York Times into fits of depression.

Friday’s jobs report came in at a whopping 224,000, “shocking” all the “experts” who had all agreed it would only amount to about 165,000. All of this means that, despite the best efforts of Democrats and the fake news media to talk it down, the Trump economy just keeps rolling along, and the recession Democrats have been praying for remains nowhere in sight.

All the Dems in and out of the media got even more depressed Saturday night when the Washington Post and ABC were forced to reveal that the President’s rating in their fake poll had reached an all-time high.

By the end of the week, Democrats and their media toadies were so bereft of anything positive that they were left to panic about the rumor that the President may be considering replacing National Security Advisor John Bolton – a war hawk who these same Dems and media toadies have spent the last 15 years mercilessly vilifying – with someone who would favor getting the U.S. military out of the 18-year war in Afghanistan and Barack Obama’s misadventure in Syria.

Grumps, liars, extremists, and black-clad masked brutes: That is what the Democrat Party has become in 2019.

It’s not a good look, folks.

That is all.
