Hollywood Performs a Cultural Appropriation on Neil Armstrong

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Wait, you hired a Canadian to play Neil Armstrong?  Isn’t that, like, cultural appropriation or something? – Hey, everybody, Hollywood has finally made a film about American hero Neil Armstrong, the first man on the moon.  That only took half a century.

That’s the good news.  The bad news is that they left out the iconic moment in which Armstrong plants the U.S. Flag on the moon’s surface, because of course they did.  Predictably, this is causing a backlash from many…wait for it…patriotic Americans!  Go figure.

The film’s Canadian star, Ryan Gosling, defended what he said was an intentional decision because Armstrong’s achievement – which was done on the back of billions of American dollars, a decade of American research and exploration, and with the support of more than 400,000 people, all of whom were…wait for it…AMERICANS – “transcended countries and borders.”

No.  Not it did not, you smarmy jackass.  As a great Twitter meme pointed out on Friday, there are two kinds of countries:  The kind that use the metric system, and the kind that has put men on the moon.

Just one more reason why if you go to the movies these days to see any film not produced by Dinesh D’Souza, you are part of the problem.

Tired of all this Winning yet?  Part I – Far left fake news outlet The Village Voice announced yesterday that it will cease all publication immediately, leaving the nation far better off as a result.  Let’s do The New York Times next.

Tired of all this Winning yet?  Part II – The State Department announced that the U.S. will withhold all contributions to a U.N. sponsored money pit that pretends to provide aid to Palestinian refugees.  A spokesman for the State Department called the agency’s business model “unsustainable,” which in diplomatic speak means all the money was being siphoned off either to support Palestinian terrorist acts against Israel or going into the pockets of corrupt U.N. officials.  Just one more element of the un-American legacy of Barack Hussein Obama gone.

Tired of all this Winning yet?  Part III – The Democrats’ 2004 presidential nominee and former failed Secretary of State John Kerry is refusing to rule out another presidential run in 2020.  Oh, please, please, please, let this happen.  I really cannot wait for a rerun of that particular fiasco.

Hey, the Texas news media has been telling us he’s just like a Kennedy, so… – Irish Beto O’Rourke took a wallop to his campaign on Friday, as the Houston Chronicle and San Antonio Express News both ran stories detailing new facts about his drunk driving incident from 20 years ago.  To be fair, O’Rourke has long admitted to the fact he was arrested for DWI, calling it an inexcusable act.  But what he has left out of his maudlin confessions are the facts that he blew a 1.36 on the breathalyzer test that night, and that he attempted to flee the scene of the wreck he caused in his drunken state before being arrested.

The Democrat-tilting news media in Texas have been comparing O’Rourke to a Kennedy for months now.  We just didn’t know prior to yesterday that they were talking about Ted Kennedy.

While the Chronicle and Express News are to be commended for actually filing these reports, they have yet to report on the fact that, in 1995, young Irish Beto was also tossed in the pokey on burglary-related charges while in college.  According to Politifact Texas, “O’Rourke and fellow students were arrested for “attempted forcible entry” under the section of the Texas penal code titled “Burglary.” We also added O’Rourke’s reference, in Palestine, to the burglary arrest.”

Gosh, maybe now we know why Irish Beto suddenly backed out of the debate with Ted Cruz that was supposed to have taken place last night.  The two candidates have four more scheduled debates over the coming weeks – we’ll just have to wait and see if our “Kennedy-esque” boy wonder chooses to keep any of those appointments.

Why is it always such a shock when someone at the FBI actually does their real job? – After state law enforcement officials in New Mexico had completely hosed up the case against the five radical Islamic terrorists who were training kidnapped children to commit atrocities in our country, the feds finally decided to step in.  On Friday, the FBI actually took time out from its ongoing silent coup efforts against President Trump to do its real job for a change, placing the five terrorists under arrest for violations of federal weapons and conspiracy laws.

“The defendants, Jany Leveille, 35, a Haitian national illegally present in the United States, Siraj Ibn Wahhaj, 40, Hujrah Wahhaj, 37, Subhanah Wahhaj, 35, and Lucas Morton, 40, are charged in a criminal complaint that was filed earlier today in the U.S. District Court for the District of New Mexico,” the bureau said in a statement.

“The criminal complaint charges Jany Leveille with being an alien unlawfully in possession of firearms and ammunition in the District of New Mexico from Nov. 2017 through Aug. 2018,” the bureau said. “The criminal complaint charges the other four defendants with aiding and abetting Leveille in committing the offense, and with conspiring with Leveille to commit the offense.”

Presumably, the arresting agents can now go back to stonewalling document production requests from various congressional committees in the hopes of getting safely past the midterm elections.  Because that is the real focus of our nation’s “premier law enforcement agency” these days.

Just another day in every day is a new day America.

That is all.

Trump Uses the Pardon Power to Reverse the Thuggish DOJ/FBI Legacy

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Democrats in Action!  Part I – The Daily Caller reports this morning that an admitted pedophile who once threatened to assassinate President George W. Bush is now an “independent” congressional candidate thanks to the efforts of despicable former Virginia Governor and long-time Clinton bag man Terry McAuliffe.

Per the Caller:

“Nathan Larson is an independent candidate in Virginia who admitted to HuffPost that he’s a pedophile who bragged in blog posts about raping his ex-wife and fantasized online about having sex with young children.

Larson is also a convicted felon who wouldn’t be eligible to run for office in Virginia had McAuliffe not restored Larson’s rights to vote and run for office in 2016.

Larson was sentenced to 16 months in prison in October 2009 for threatening to kill the president.”

Virginia law cancels voting rights for convicted felons, but McAuliffe, in a desperate effort to fix the 2016 election in his state for the Pantsuit Princess, issued an executive order in 2016 restoring voting rights to more than 10,000 convicted felons in the state, most of whom he obviously expected to vote Democrat.  Gee, wonder why?

So now Larson’s running for Congress thanks to the despicable actions of a despicable man.  Way to go, Democrats!

Democrats in Action!  Part II – Speaking of Virginia Democrats, some guy named Dan Helmer is running for congress in the state’s 10th congressional district against incumbent Republican Barbara Comstock.  Although completely overshadowed by all the hysteria surrounding Roseanne Barr and Samantha Bee, Helmer’s new TV ad created controversy yesterday because it equates the current President of the United States to Osama Bin Laden.

I would say this is a new low for Democrats, but is it really?  They’ve gone so low so many times that it becomes almost impossible to tell anymore.

One thing is for sure:  Virginia’s Democrats are just loading up the November ballot with scumbags, which they obviously believe is the right strategy for appealing to the state’s voters.  Hey, they voted for McAuliffe twice, so sound legit to me.

Democrats in Action!  Part III – Famed liberal poll analyst Nate Silver, who was hilariously wrong about every.  little.  thing during the 2016 election campaign, has a post up on his website this morning titled…wait for it…”Which Pollsters to Trust in 2018.”  I swear I don’t make this stuff up. Who could?

Tired of all this Winning yet? – President Donald Trump issued a pardon on Thursday for conservative film-maker Dinesh D’Souza, in an obvious jab at both former U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara (who Trump fired) and former FBI Director and current teenage drama queen James Comey (who Trump also fired).

D’Souza had been made an example of by the corrupt Obama Justice Department and FBI after he had produced a film critical of America’s Biggest Mistake, Mr. Obama.  Bharara and Comey’s FBI turned D’Souza into a literal political prisoner for having contributed $20,000 to a New York political candidate, allegedly exceeding the contribution limits by encouraging others to also contribute.  The filmmaker plead guilty after Bharara had Comey’s agents raid his home and threatened to add additional charges for the same alleged actions that could have resulted in 5 years in federal prison.

In other words, Bharara was using exactly the tactics that Special Counsel Robert Mueller used to browbeat General Mike Flynn into his guilty plea last November – do it, or we’ll completely destroy your life.  This is Gestapo stuff, not anything that should happen in America.  But don’t kid yourselves:  it happens all the time.

Talking to reporters later in the day, the President speculated he might also pardon Martha Stewart, who then-FBI Director Mueller’s thugs also browbeat into a guilty plea for lying to investigators in 2004.  You may have thought the home designer served her 5 months in prison for “insider trading” – the allegation that led to the FBI’s inquisition of her, but you’d be wrong.

Curiously – and somewhat hilariously – the President also speculated that he might even pardon former Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich, who was sent to prison for allegedly selling the senate seat Obama vacated in 2007 to the highest bidder.  Fans of the Celebrity Apprentice will remember that Blago actually was a contestant on that show while he was awaiting trial.  Since his conviction, evidence of FBI thuggery and prosecutors withholding of exculpatory evidence have come to light, which should at this point surprise absolutely no one with actively firing synapses in their brain.

The U.S. Attorney in that case?  Patrick Fitzgerald, the infamous Bush-era Special Counsel who basically framed Scooter Libby, who, by the way, Trump also pardoned a few weeks ago.  The FBI Director at the time?  First Robert Mueller, later James Comey.   So that case is a two-fer.

Now that he’s pretty much finished erasing the horrid, un-American legacy of Barack Obama, President Trump seems intent on erasing the equally repugnant legacy of America’s Gestapo.  Awesome.

Just another day in Donald Trump’s America.

That is all.
