Why Joe Biden had to be the Democrat Party’s “Presumptive” Nominee

The Evening Campaign Update

You all understand by now that the fix was in for Joe Biden, right? Everyone gets why Creepy Uncle Quid Pro China Joe literally had to be the Democrat Party’s “presumptive” nominee for the presidency this year?

This “presumptive” nomination was never in doubt. It took me a long time to figure that out, but the simplicity of it all finally popped into my head earlier today, as I was editing my third “Obama Knew” piece of the last four days.

Yes, Obama knew everything. He knew from cradle to grave. He knew about all the illegal spying on the Trump campaign beginning in late 2015 and continuing right into the Trump Transition and even into the Trump presidency. He knew about the Clinton Campaign and DNC splitting the costs for the fake Steele Dossier, and knew it was all based on lies from agents of foreign nations like Russia.

Obama knew about all the FISA fraud and the effort to entrap and frame Mike Flynn. He knew about the literal wiretapping of Trump Tower and knew about James Comey’s effort to entrap and frame new President Donald Trump. He knew about all the perjury and fraud and subterfuge and open sedition and arguably outright treason.

And guess who else knew about all of that in real time as it was happening? Creepy Uncle Quid Pro China Joe Biden.

That, folks, is why no one else could possibly become the presumptive Democrat nominee. Bernie Sanders never really had a chance. Nor did Preacher Pete, or Fauxcahontas or any of the other 7,000 candidates for the nomination.

See, Biden knows all the deep, dark secrets of the Obama years. He knows where all the bodies are buried. And more to the point, he participated in burying them. And even more to the point, he was the only declared candidate for the nomination this time who had that status.

Thus, Biden was the only person in the race who Obama and the evil minions who run the DNC could possibly allow to secure the nomination. After all, he had real skin in the game. If everything suddenly spills out into the public domain – as it has been doing in drips and drabs over the past few weeks – Quid Pro Joe is as much at risk as anyone else, including Obama.

Think about it: one of the things Biden knows – as Obama does – is that the DNC was not really “hacked” by the Russians in 2016, as the organization has falsely claimed for four long years.  Could the current DNC minions really risk having an unknown quantity like Preacher Pete walking into the Oval Office on January 20 of next year and trust him to be willing to become an after-the-fact accomplice?

What about Kamala Harris? Could she be trusted with the keys to the kingdom?

Fauxcahontas can’t even be trusted to tell the truth about her grandmother’s racial background. You think Obama can trust her to keep him out of all of this? Please.

No, this was always destined to be Biden’s “presumptive” nomination. He is the only candidate who is personally at risk, and thus the only one who could be fully trusted to immediately shut down any further investigations into anything related to Spygate/Obamagate on his first day in office.

Of course, the problem with this plan becomes more manifest with each passing day: Quid Pro China Joe is increasingly and obviously impaired. He is not capable of conducting a video conference call, much less the office of the presidency.

But note that I keep using the term “presumptive” nominee. That’s because Biden doesn’t have to be the actual nominee. All he has to do is remain semi-lucid for another couple of months, until all the party’s primary contests have come and gone, in order to ensure that Sanders has no ability to accumulate enough delegates to win the nomination on a first ballot vote at the convention.

Because, as Yoda said in one of those Star Wars flicks a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away, “There is another.”

Yes, there is another. Another prominent Democrat who also has plenty of skin and personal risk in this game. Another who has been waiting in the wings all along, hoping for a chance to jump in and steal this nomination.

That, of course, would be the Pantsuit Princess herself, Hillary Rotten Clinton. The same Fainting Felon who was supposed to win the election in 2016 and sweep everything under the rug the day she assumed office in 2017. Oops. But now she might get a second chance to finish the job.

It’s all becoming clear now. It just took awhile to figure it all out.

That is all.

Staffers Confirm Bloomberg’s Decision to Debate was his Campaign’s Death Knell

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

The leftist publication The Nation often publishes very interesting analysis pieces. One such piece ran on Friday. Titled “‘This Was a Grift’: Bloomberg Staffers Explain Campaign’s Demise,” the piece written by Ken Klippenstein makes for some very fascinating reading.

Klippenstein had access to several Bloomberg staffers who confirm the thesis that I laid out in the Campaign Update of February 22: That Bloomberg’s decision to enter the Las Vegas debate despite the fact he was not participating in the Nevada Caucuses was a strategic blunder that ultimately proved fatal.

Klippenstein not only traces the implosion of Mini-Mike’s failed effort to that debate, but to the moment when Elizabeth Warren slammed his very poor and public record of dealing with female employees:

…according to nearly a dozen members of his campaign staff, the former New York City mayor’s presidential dreams really died when Elizabeth Warren eviscerated his record on live television during the February 19 debate in Las Vegas.

Not a single Bloomberg staffer that I spoke to was surprised by the campaign’s implosion. Speaking on the condition of anonymity for fear of professional reprisal and because of the campaign’s nondisclosure agreements—which The Nation obtained a leaked copy of in February—campaign employees cited that bruising debate as well as a general lack of enthusiasm for Bloomberg among the staff as main factors ending his presidential run.

“Ever since the first debate all of us faced a ton of hostility [when knocking on] doors…and could hardly get any volunteers,” one field organizer told me. “I once had a woman chase me back to my car demanding that I say you can’t buy the presidency.”

[End]

Now, here’s part of what I wrote in that Feb. 22 piece:

Using the RCP aggregate of betting odds as a primary gauge, the disastrous debate showing by Mr. Excitement, Mike Bloomberg, last Wednesday is going to have a major negative impact on his polling numbers and, by extension, on his ability to accumulate votes and maybe even win a state or two in the March 3 Super Tuesday primaries.

Just nine days ago, The Commie held a shaky 5-point lead over Mini-Mike in this important gauge of public sentiment, with Sanders pulling in 39% of the money being bet and Mr. Excitement 34%. That Commie lead began to expand, though, as video after video began to surface of Mini-Mike making horrific public statements offending all manner of traditional Democrat interest groups. By the time debate day came around, the Sanders lead had grown to 17 points.

In the three days since Bloomberg’s Vegas Waterloo, the bottom has dropped out. The Commie’s support has jumped up over 50% for the first time, while Mr. Excitement has crashed down to 22%. It is very likely that that near-30% gap between the two will only expand after Sanders scores what is going to be a big winning margin in the Nevada caucuses.

Before that debate took place, Mini-Mike had actually moved into slight polling leads in both Oklahoma and Arkansas, and was becoming competitive in a couple of the other Super Tuesday states, based solely on the strength of $300 million spent on TV and social media ads.  In polling released over the next 7-10 days, we will likely see those leads go poof!, as the impacts of his debate catastrophe begin to show up in the polling data.

I told you on Wednesday morning that there was no possible benefit for Bloomberg to appear in that debate: He wasn’t even on the ballot in Nevada – why take the risk of having exactly the horrific debate performance he in fact had? And there was no way this near-terminally boring old man who hadn’t participated in a debate setting in a dozen years was going to have a good night against a pack of desperate animals who have been doing nothing but debating and running their mouths for almost a damn year now.

[End]

Back to Klippenstein’s piece in The Nation:

Several members of the campaign described Bloomberg’s debate as the beginning of the end. As another field organizer put it, “The people who liked Mike initially didn’t care about the sexual [harassment] allegations or stop and frisk, but they got turned off because they thought he made himself look weak and that he had let Warren walk all over him.”

A third staffer also said that the debate marked a turning point, after which phone calls with voters became more difficult. “The day after [the debate] when we made calls people were like, ‘Oh yeah, I was thinking about him [Bloomberg], but I’m not really sure anymore.’”

Bloomberg’s performance, specifically his handling of Warren’s questions, even alienated the campaign’s volunteers. Of the volunteers that quit, one campaign employee told me, “Just about every one of them said it was because of the debate performance or the NDA scandals.”

[End]

Klippenstein’s piece also goes into detail about how Bloomberg staffers, seeing the handwriting of Bloomberg’s impending doom clearly written on the wall, actually used Mini-Mike’s tons of money to actively campaign for Sanders and other Democrat candidates leading up to Super Tuesday. It’s a fascinating piece that everyone should go read. Warning: you’ll have to spend $1 for a 24-hour access to The Nation’s website to do it, but I found it well worth the price.

The Corrupt American Media Shames Itself Yet Again

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

You can’t trust MSNBC or the New York Times to do the maths. – Seriously, you could never make this stuff up, folks.

Understand that both of these corrupt “journalists” spent a good deal of time preparing for this moment. They prepared actual talking points for it. Both certainly were assisted by half a dozen or more assistants, fact-checkers, and talking points monkeys.

Understand that this didn’t just happen on the spur of the moment, and you understand exactly how utterly stupid the nation’s population of corrupt journalists truly is as a group.

Speaking of utterly stupid corrupt fake journalists, check out this tweet from the execrable hack, Ana Navarro, a paid CNN contributor:

Of course, Jeff Sessions is from Alabama, not Arkansas. But hey, at least she knew it was one of those “A” states out there in Flyover Country, so her peers in the corrupt news media would say she did great. They like to grade themselves on a very steep curve.

The “it’s all sexism and misogyny” excuse rears its ugly head again. – Here’s a panel of dimwitted talking heads on MSNBC yesterday, whining about how the failure of the lifelong fraud Lieawatha to gain traction in the Democrat Party nominating race means America is all, like, sexist and like, misogynistic and stuff, or something:

Note that at least three of those five nitwits pretend to be working journalists, including the host, who is really just a turncoat former Bushie. Note also that none of them has the presence of mind to realize that all this sexism and misogyny they’re talking about, if it actually does exist, comes straight from the DEMOCRAT PARTY VOTER BASE. This would be the very same Democrat voter base that these very same nitwits regularly portray as being so open-minded, diverse and vastly superior to the voter base of the GOP.

This is not rocket science, is it? Seriously, is this hard? Am I missing something here? If I am, I truly do want to know what it is.

And now for some comic relief…: Hey, look, CBS This Morning is so desperate for rating that it has apparently signed Austin Powers to a new contributor agreement.

GOLO or Gabby Adventure Time Now: School, Zorro, 돌, and REDFACE

 

Ok, sorry. Just having a little fun there.

Back to the whole “sexism” and Fauxcahontas thing… – The cretins who run The Hill published this piece yesterday:

Here’s the thing, ladies and corrupt journalists pushing this false narrative:

TULSI. GABBARD. IS. STILL. A. CANDIDATE.

She really is a woman – seriously, she serves in the Army Reserves, it’s been verified. Check it out:

Tulsi Gabbard ‘regrets’ her past anti-gay activism as she prepares for a presidential race ...

See? She’s even waving at you, trying to get your attention.

Why is she waving in a desperate attempt to get your attention, you ask? It could be because she, a verified, actual lady with all the requisite lady parts, has had a real hard timing getting to 2% support in the polls of DEMOCRAT VOTERS in this campaign. Seems that all you liberals out there who wail and scream and whine incessantly about the nation’s aching need to have a woman, any woman, elected to the presidency for the simple fact that she is a woman, have utterly and completely failed to support this particular woman.

Today, she is the last woman standing in presidential politics for 2020, and I guaran-damn-tee you we will not see anyone in our corrupt news media wailing and screaming and incessantly whining about the need for all you liberals out there to now support Tulsi Gabbard over the two old geezers she’s left running against.

So, spare us all the drama. Please.

That is all.

Warren Withdraws, Taking Any Notion of Democrat “Diversity” With Her

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

For Democrats, diversity is their strength. Oh, wait… – Man, the pickings for mocking hypocritical, demented Democrat frauds sure are getting slim now. Tom Steyer – gone! Preacher Pete – gone! Klobuchar – gone! Mini-Mike – gone!

And now, as of this morning, no more Fauxcahontas! No more Lieawatha! No more Princess Little Big Mouth Always Running! Gone, all gone! And in just the last 6 days!

Democrats four years ago: “Trump is 69! He’s just another old white guy who’s too old to be president!!!!!!”

Democrats as of today: “I’m voting for one of the 78 year-old pasty-faced white guys!!!!!!!”

*sigh*…

Yes, I know: Tulsi Gabbard – who unlike Lieawatha, really is an actual minority candidate – is still in the race. But be honest: Nobody, and I mean NOBODY, thinks that Tulsi Gabbard is a serious contender for the 2020 Democrat nomination. Not even Tulsi believes that.

The once-25-man-and-woman-and-presumably-myriad-other-fictional-gender field of Democrat candidates has now, at long last, boiled down to a one-on-one contest between Quid Pro Joe and The Commie. Which, come to think of it, was exactly what the polls have been showing would be the likely outcome all along.

Which only serves to prove that, as always, Democrats were just giving lip service to any notion of having real “diversity” in their desperation to throw up someone, anyone, to be their nominee to challenge President Donald Trump in the fall. If Democrats voters truly cared about “diversity,” after all, it wasn’t like they didn’t have plenty of potential choices, any one of whom would have had at least as good a chance of prevailing in the general election as either of the two last geezers standing.

But the truth of the matter is that, to most Democrats, all this “diversity” talk is really nothing more than a virtue-signaling opportunity. If they were really anxious, for example, to nominate the first Black woman, what was wrong with Kamala Harris? I mean, other than being a horrible campaigner and clueless cretin? If it’s all about “diversity,” shouldn’t truly caring voters ignore those realities as they’ve ignored them about Biden?

If Democrat voters really, truly gave a damn about nominating a gay man, how come Preacher Pete could never attract above 8% national support in the polls? If Democrat voters cared about being the first to put forward an Hispanic nominee, what was wrong with Julian Castro? Or hell, they could’ve gone for the fake Hispanic, Beto O’Rourke. But neither Texan could even make it to the end of 2019 before folding up their tents and going home.

The truth is that “diversity” is only a real priority for Democrat voters when it’s convenient. Barack Obama became convenient when it became clear that a) he was the only viable option other than the Pantsuit Princess in 2008, and b) that he could actually beat the execrable John McCain in the general election. Democrat voters were all about “diversity” in that case.

The Fainting Felon became convenient in 2016 when it became clear that she was the only thing standing between their party and a takeover by The Commie and his violence-promoting hoards. So, they were all about “diversity” back then.

But now? Now, Democrat voters don’t really much care about their precious “diversity,” because it isn’t at all useful to their goal of beating President Trump. So, to hell with “diversity,” let’s nominate one of these old, pasty-white geezers and see if he can beat the bad Orange Man. No virtue-signaling there – just a crass and ruthless pursuit of political power, which is really all Democrats care about in any event.

“Diversity” is great when it’s convenient to that pursuit of power. This year, it isn’t.

And so, Fauxcahontas will now slink back to her teepee to lick her wounds and patiently wait to see which geezer offers the most wampum for her endorsement.

We will all anxiously await her smoke signals.

That is all.

Mini-Mike Suspends – The Ball is Now in Fauxcahontas’s Teepee

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

We won’t have Mini-Mike to kick around anymore, which is a crying damn shame when you think about it. – Just like that, Mike Bloomberg suspends his incredibly ineffective, humongously expensive presidential campaign; thus, the Democrat Party establishment has successfully now cleared the field of anyone who can be referred to as remotely “moderate” and left the clearly-addled Quid Pro Joe standing alone against The Commie and Lieawatha.

From the Axios article on Mr. Excitement’s withdrawal:

Michael Bloomberg, who spent hundreds of millions of dollars to self-fund his 2020 presidential run, announced Wednesday that he is suspending his campaign after a poor performance on Super Tuesday and will endorse Joe Biden.

The state of play: Bloomberg opted to skip campaigning in early states, staking his candidacy on a string of Super Tuesday victories to launch him to frontrunner status, but that plan was ultimately felled by the resurgence of Joe Biden’s campaign.

“I’ve known Joe for a very long time. I know his decency, his honesty, and his commitment to the issues that are so important to our country – including gun safety, health care, climate change, and good jobs.”

The big picture: Bloomberg’s self-funding drew backlash from an increasingly progressive party that is skeptical of the role of big money in politics. Bloomberg was one of two billionaires in the race, joined by Tom Steyer, who dropped out over the weekend.

The President himself responded to Mini-Mike’s announcement with a pair of hilarious tweets:

And…

Now that the Party’s panic has achieved its desired goal, the focus will fall on Princess Little Big Mouth Always Running to see if she will have the grace to clear the radical path for The Commie. Her continued presence in the field already cost The Commie at least two primary wins on Tuesday – in Massachusetts and Maine – and would be likely to continue to cost Sanders in the delegate count in future primary contests.

So, the question becomes about who Elizabeth Warren really is: Is she really the progressive radical she pretends to be, or just another tool of the Party’s establishment?

We will find out very soon.

The Democrat Clown Show Moves Into Outright Panic Mode

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

The Democrat Party’s “establishment”, i.e., the part of the party’s leadership that still tries to hide its’ true socialist nature, is pulling out all the stops for Quid Pro Joe. – Having now realized that Mini-Mike Bloomberg is too inept and flawed as a candidate to ever be able to unite the party’s demented voter base, the Democrat poobahs pulled out all the stops on Monday to try to lift their Unfrozen Caveman Senator to wins in some key Super Tuesday states today.

It probably won’t work, given that “pulling out all the stops” just means that Crazy Uncle Joe received the endorsements of several people who already failed miserably in their own attempts to do what he’s trying to do. First came Preacher Pete, who suddenly ended his campaign Sunday afternoon after reportedly speaking to both Jimmy Carter and Barack Hussein Obama His Own Self.

No doubt the Preacher was promised a nice, cushy cabinet spot for his troubles. Try to imagine this guy as your next Secretary of Defense, and you probably get the idea.

Next came Amy Klobuchar, who apparently got the same Obama call about 18 hours before she was poised to win the primary in her home state of Minnesota. There’s your next secretary of Homeland Security or Housing and Urban Development, folks, should Joe manage to Quid Pro his way into the Oval Office.

Serial looooooser Irish Bob O’Rourke even got into act, flying out to somewhere – I’m not sure where – to deliver an endorsement speech at a Biden event in another half-empty high school gym. After O’Rourke had finished, the Unfrozen Caveman Senator got up and delivered another incoherent speech that included this little gem:

Yes, you heard it right: “We hold these truths to be self-evident. All men and women created by the, you know, you know, the thing. You know, how we talk about. The, we, the people.” Somewhere, Thomas Jefferson is rolling over in his grave.

The obviously impaired geezer also apparently thinks Buttigieg is actually Eric Swalwell:

You could never make this stuff up, folks, never in a million years.

The Commie, Bernie Sanders, seemed unfazed by it all, being used as he is to seeing the Democrat establishment working to rig elections against him. He made a speech in San Jose, California in which he welcomed all the former Buittigieg and Klubuchar supporters into his fold, knowing that a large percentage of those folks – especially among the Preacher Pete support base – are commies at heart. He most likely laughed out loud when he saw O’Rourke trying to make himself relevant to something again.

Meanwhile, Mini-Mike Bloomberg made an ass of himself on national TV one more time, making the strategic error of appearing in a town hall on Fox News. Watch his answer when an audience member asks, “How do you justify pushing for more gun control when you have an armed security detail that is likely equipped with the same firearms and magazines you seek to ban the common citizen from owning? Does your life matter more than mine or my family’s, or these people’s?

Bloomberg: “Look, I probably get 40-50 threats every week, ok, and some of them are real. That just happens when you are the mayor of New York City, or if you’re very wealthy and you’re campaigning for president of the United States. You get lots of threats, so I have a security detail. I pay for it all myself, and, uh, um, you know, they’re all retired police officers who are very well trained in firearms.”

Oh. Does anything he said there justify his position of banning common citizens from owning firearms? What he just said there is exactly what you’d expect a hubris-consumed person of massive wealth and privilege to say: “It’s fine for very wealthy people like me and my security detail to have guns because we need them to protect us from people like you.”

Note that he rubs this ordinary guy’s nose in his own massive wealth not once, but twice in the span four sentences. An intelligent, well-coached candidate would have said something like, “Look, I’m a candidate for president right now, and before that I was mayor of New York City. The unfortunate reality of our society today is that, when you put yourself into those positions of public service, you have to have armed security because of all the threats you receive. I do not carry a gun in my personal life and never will.”

There, see how easy and much more effective that was? Who in the hell is advising this man?

The reality of Mini-Mike as a candidate is that he has got to be the single most clueless individual on the face of the earth. And this answer, in a nutshell, illustrates to us all why the Democrat party establishment is so panicked now to try to prop up the obviously impaired Biden.

Their efforts are probably too late and will most likely go for naught. There are 1357 convention delegates up for grabs today and the Commie is most likely going to win somewhere between 800 and 900 of them.  The rest will be split up in some proportions between Quid Pro Joe, Mini-Mike and Fauxcahontas, who has refused thus far to end her hopeless campaign, even though she most likely got the same call from Obama that the others received.

So, Gropey Dopey Joe might come away with 300 or so, with Mini-Mike and Lieawatha divvying up the rest.

By the end of the day today, a little more than 40% of the total delegates in this nominating race will have been awarded, and The Commie is poised to own right about half of the 1900+ he needs to win on a first ballot at the Democrat convention in July.

After yesterday’s events, you can literally smell the panic and fear setting in at DNC headquarters. For the rest of America, it is the sweet aroma of #WINNING.

Joe Biden: The Unfrozen Caveman Comeback Kid – for 72 Hours

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

He wants to be the president who appoints the first black female to the United States Senate! – That is exactly what Quid Pro Joe Biden told an audience at a rally on Friday, and the rest of the Democrat presidential field is so weak that they voted for him anyway.

So, now America’s Unfrozen Caveman Senator gets to be the Democrats’ Unfrozen Caveman Comeback Kid.  For about 72 hours. By then, most of the results from the Super Tuesday states will have come in, and Crazy Uncle Joe will be right back where he belongs, sucking the wind of The Commie’s campaign.

Even the ardent Biden hacks on CNN’s massive panel of election analysis hackery last night admitted that the prospects ahead for the buffonish ex-Veep are painfully thin: Hey, if he can win a few states – some combination of Arkansas, North Carolina and/or Virginia – on Tuesday, and be competitive enough to pick up delegates in some other states, like Texas and Oklahoma, then he can keep raising a little money and keep his horribly-run campaign on life support for a couple more weeks, until the next raft of big states come up on March 17. That is when the states of Ohio, Illinois, Florida and Arizona hold their primaries.

To his credit, Quid Pro Joe actually seems to be leading in Florida, although the polling data there thus far is very sparse, and the momentum from his big South Carolina win might well help him maintain that position there. We have no information thus far in terms of polls from any of those other states.

But let’s say Biden is actually able to win Florida and maybe one of those other states – one would certainly think he would be competitive in Illinois, for example. In that event, there would be no question that Quid Pro Joe would be able to continue making a fool of himself all the way through the July convention in Milwaukee.

With Steyer dropping out of the race last night [finally], and the Warren, Klobuchar and Buttigieg campaigns now having zero real reason to continue other than the candidates’ own hubris, Mini-Mike becomes the only other meaningful factor in the race from this point forward.

Make no mistake about it: Mr. Excitement is only a factor because he happens to have $62 billion to burn through. Despite having already frittered away half a billion, mostly on paid advertising, Bloomberg still has a net negative favorability rating among Democrat voters, and virtually zero appeal to the black voters who are so crucial to Democrat success. Exit polls from South Carolina yesterday showed Mini-Mike with at 22/66 favorable/unfavorable rating from the heavily-black Democrat voters in that state. That’s about the rating Satan would get from those same voters. He is a horribly unappealing candidate.

The question for Bloomberg now becomes what will he do after he has a terrible showing on Super Tuesday? Because that’s what is going to happen. It is doubtful he will actually win a single one of the 14 states being contested on Tuesday. He will not even be competitive in California, and is likely to finish a distant third in Texas, where the intensity of his advertising has dropped noticeably in the past week.

Bloomberg has repeatedly said that he is willing to spend up to $2 billion of his personal fortune in his effort to prevent President Donald Trump’s re-election. Regular readers here will know that my belief is that he never expected to be able to win the Democrat nomination, but became a “candidate” so that he would receive the preferential advertising rates that candidates are entitled to.

With the DNC essentially broke, Bloomberg serves both as a proxy for the anti-Trump spending the Party would have normally done, and as a stalking horse for Biden or some other “moderate” candidate to challenge The Commie come convention time.

Thus, my bet is that Mini-Mike will continue his “candidacy” through July regardless of his ability to actually attract votes, so that he can keep buying TV ads at the lower, preferential candidate rates.

Preacher Pete, Fauxcahontas and Klobuchar will all end their flagging efforts after failing to do much on Super Tuesday, which means Americans can now look forward to the prospect of having to endure a three-person contest between an outright communist radical, an obviously impaired former vice president, and a tiny billionaire with no prospects of winning anything other than the race to see who can burn through the most money.

That is our life, all the way through July.

 

My updated odds on the ultimate Democrat nominee:

The Commie – 5 to 4

Quid Pro Joe – 2 to 1

Someone not currently in the field – 10 to 1

Mini-Mike – 20 to 1

Klobuchar – 20 to 1 (She’s a potential compromise nominee at a deadlocked convention)

Fauxcahontas – 100 to 1

Preacher Pete – 1,000 to 1

Mike Bloomberg is the Wizard of Oz

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

Mike Bloomberg is the illustrative case for the limits of the effectiveness of paid advertising.

Quid Pro Joe Biden is so confident of a victory in South Carolina on Saturday that he just scheduled an appearance on Fox New Sunday with Chris Wallace Sunday morning so he can brag about his first-ever primary victory across his 3 different presidential campaigns.

The Commie, Bernie Sanders, has so much momentum in the race for the nomination that he is now regularly drawing crowds of thousands to his campaign rallies.

Fauxcahontas is running surprisingly strong in a raft of Super Tuesday polls, coming in second to The Commie key states like California and Massachusetts, and a strong third place in Texas.

Meanwhile, Mini-Mike Bloomberg is left sucking wind. After spending more than $400 million of his personal fortune, mostly on paid advertising, Mr. Excitement’s insurgent presidential campaign is foundering with little prospect of recovery.

The little ex-Mayor’s polling numbers have collapsed in the wake of two disastrous debate performances, and with his ubiquitous advertising campaign now having reached point of saturation – and probably even now having moved into the consumer annoyance phase – he has no visible options available to change the trajectory of the race in his favor.

Bloomberg’s money was able to influence Democrat voters to a certain extent, and at one point had even gotten him to the point of leading in polls in Arkansas and Oklahoma. But no amount of advertising can force voters to support a candidate whose stark reality as revealed in those nationally-televised debate did not in any way measure up to the image presented in his ads.

That image was of a man of supreme confidence, energy and competence who could get things done in the face of great adversity. The reality seen in the debates was of a nervous, stammering old man with little energy, a man who had no believable answers when challenged by a life-long fraud like Lieawatha to explain himself.

The image was of a man who could stand up to the evil Trump and blast him in a general election campaign. The reality seen in the debates was a tiny man who couldn’t stand up to the likes of Preacher Pete, The Commie and Amy Klobuchar.

The image was of a compassionate individual who treated women and minorities with equality and respect. The reality seen in the debates and videos of his past statements was of an abusive boss who discriminated against women in the workplace and against minorities while serving as Mayor of the nation’s largest city.

Once the reality of the man had been revealed for all to see, no amount of paid advertising could put that genie back into the bottle.

Mike Bloomberg is the man behind the curtain. He is, at the end of the day, The Wizard of Oz.

South Carolina Debate Confirms: This is now Bernie Sanders’ Race to Lose

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

Ok, I’m embarrassed to admit it, but I watched the Democrat debate last night. What a damn circus. – I suppose the best thing to say about this one was that at least they didn’t spend ten minutes promising to ban fracking, blot the global landscape with millions of 700 ft. tall windmills, and use Unicorn breath to power their fantasy-based energy plans.

But while the panel of pedantic CBS moderators at least spared us from that indignity, every other Democrat fantasy was played out once again for all to see on national television. Here are some of the highlights:

  • Quid Pro Joe Biden, after informing America that he personally wrote the assault weapons ban – which will come as a huge surprise to Dianne Feinstein – of the 1990s, told us in his very next breath that, since that ban was repealed in 2006, “150 million Americans” have been mowed down on our streets by gun violence (the actual number is about 1/1000th of that). As if to emphasize that his multiple brain aneurysms were acting up again, the nation’s Unfrozen Caveman Senator emphasized that orders of magnitude exaggeration by informing us that that is more than those who have died in all of America’s wars combined (it isn’t even close). The raving lunatic will most likely claim he was misquoted today, that is if any corrupt journalist even bothers to ask him about it.
  • The Commie went basically untouched throughout the debate, even though every other candidate did their best to molest him. But Sanders is just too unflappable to take their bait. His best moment for the demented Democrat voter base – and worst moment for his general election prospects – came when he once again expounded on the joys of Fidel Castro’s half-century of communist despotism in Cuba. He had even Fauxcahontas shaking her head in frustration by the end of the night.
  • Speaking of Lieawatha, she repeated her outright lie about being fired from a teaching job at age 21 because she was pregnant, a lie that none of the corrupt fake CBS journalists made any effort to question. She laid out that whopper in the context of excoriating Mini-Mike Bloomberg for once telling a newly-pregnant female employee to “kill it!” Warren obviously went into last night’s debate hoping to devastate the tiny ex-mayor as she did in last week’s Las Vegas debate, but the “kill it” reference turned out to be a bridge too far, one that had even the CNN panelists tsk-tsking at her after the debate.
  • Speaking of mayors, Preacher Pete was his usual sanctimoniously loquacious self, constantly interrupting others and pontificating about all manner of issues related to which he has zero practical experience, like Middle East policy. The guy who proved incapable of competently managing a town of 100,000 residents has a detailed plan for literally everything, making him the perfect running mate for The Commie, for whom he could serve in multiple roles as vice presidential candidate, accountant, actuary and lay preacher.
  • Tom Steyer helped Mini-Mike form billionaire bookends at opposite ends of the stage lineup, and he stood there barking like a madman and constantly doing the whole rock-n-roll base guitarist chicken head nod as if he was yelling in time with a bad Black Sabbath number. No one could possibly pay attention to the words he was actually screaming due to all of the visual distractions he presents.
  • Stuck standing next to Steyer and hopefully wearing ear plugs was Amy Klobuchar, who probably had the best night of any of the participants in terms of potentially appealing to enough voters to actually win in November. But it won’t matter. She simply cannot compete in the money race, and she makes too much occasional sense to ever hope to win the Party’s nomination in July. Her best moment came when she was talking about a housing bill she had authored, and Biden jumped in with one of his patented Turrets Syndrome-like “I wrote that bill!” blurts. Klobuchar just shook her head like an impatient mom scolding a 5 year-old child and said, “Joe, you didn’t write that bill.” I do not agree with Klobuchar on basically anything, but I’ve developed a grudging admiration for her because she is pretty much the only person on that stage who is authentically stating the things she believes. But authenticity, of course, is basically a death knell for any Democrat presidential candidate, so she will continue to tread water in the race.
  • Finally, there’s Mr. Excitement, Mini-Mike Bloomberg. As mentioned above, Lieawatha went after him fiercely again because she has made the calculation that Bloomberg can’t stop The Commie and she sees herself now as Sanders’ likely running mate. The best thing that can be said about Bloomberg’s performance last night is that it wasn’t quite as awful as his performance last week. He was certainly helped along by moderators Norah O’Donnell and Gayle King, who tossed him several softball questions that the two had obviously prepared for in advance. Like Lester Holt last week, both CBS talking heads behaved as if they were firmly on Mr. Excitement’s payroll and want to stay there. Packing the auditorium’s audience with a no-doubt paid-for cheering section also helped.

The big question coming into this debate was whether Mini-Mike could rehabilitate himself and stop the bleeding following his disastrous performance in Las Vegas. The answer appears to be that he may have done just enough stabilize things through Super Tuesday, now just 6 days away. The tiny ex-Mayor’s problem there, though, is that he doesn’t hold a clear lead in a single one of those states as of today. He needed a big-time, confidence-inspiring performance last night and he just is not capable of delivering that in a debate format, especially one as chaotic as these Democrat debates have become.

The big winners last night were, in order:

Donald Trump, for the same obvious reasons he has been the big winner of all the previous Democrat debates;

The Commie, who didn’t take any big hits and will remain the clear front-runner;

Quid Pro Joe, who likely did just enough despite his major gaffe to secure a win in South Carolina.

The big losers were, in order:

Tom Steyer, who will lose badly on Saturday after pouring tens of millions into South Carolina;

Preacher Pete, who needed some sort of big moment to remain viable, and couldn’t do it.

 

Bottom line: Despite all of the histrionics and buffoonery on stage, this ended up being a status quo debate, one that solidified Quid Pro Joe’s firewall in South Carolina, firmed-up The Commie’s standing as the clear front-runner for the nomination, and ensured that Mr. Excitement will continue to waste hundreds of millions of his own fortune on paid advertising that has most likely already taken him as far as it can.

This is now officially The Commie’s race to lose.

 

Here are my updated odds for the ultimate winner of the Democrat nomination:

The Commie – 5 to 4

Mini-Mike – 5 to 1

Quid Pro Joe – 5 to 1

Fauxcahontas – 30 to 1

Preacher Pete – 50 to 1

Klobuchar – 100 to 1

Steyer – infinity to 1

Tulsi Gabbard – is she still running?

Someone not currently in the race – 3 to 1

 

That is all.

The Las Vegas Debate Was Bloomberg’s Own Waterloo

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

He never should’ve agreed to participate in that Las Vegas debate. – One of the best ways to gauge the state of a multi-candidate presidential nominating race is to follow the betting odds. The polling business in the United States has become too corrupt now to really trust, other than to use aggregates of polls over time to assess trends.

Another problem with the polls is that so many people – like yours truly – simply lie to pollsters about who they really support. Some do it due to social stigma about supporting specific candidates; others, like me, do it because they just basically detest polling operations and the way so many have allowed themselves to become tools of corrupt media organizations. I personally haven’t spoken the truth to any pollster since Rush Limbaugh implemented “Operation Chaos” during the 2008 Democratic primary race between Obama and the Pantsuit Princess.

But the betting odds are a different animal entirely. These odds aren’t calculated just from average people telling their opinions to some stranger on the telephone; to the contrary, these are calculated from people putting their money where their mouths are. Few, if any bettors are going to slap down a hundred bucks on some candidate they believe to be a looooser just to distort the results tabulated by RealClearPolitics.

Right? Right.

Using the RCP aggregate of betting odds as a primary gauge, the disastrous debate showing by Mr. Excitement, Mike Bloomberg, last Wednesday is going to have a major negative impact on his polling numbers and, by extension, on his ability to accumulate votes and maybe even win a state or two in the March 3 Super Tuesday primaries.

Just nine days ago, The Commie held a shaky 5-point lead over Mini-Mike in this important gauge of public sentiment, with Sanders pulling in 39% of the money being bet and Mr. Excitement 34%. That Commie lead began to expand, though, as video after video began to surface of Mini-Mike making horrific public statements offending all manner of traditional Democrat interest groups. By the time debate day came around, the Sanders lead had grown to 17 points.

In the three days since Bloomberg’s Vegas Waterloo, the bottom has dropped out. The Commie’s support has jumped up over 50% for the first time, while Mr. Excitement has crashed down to 22%. It is very likely that that near-30% gap between the two will only expand after Sanders scores what is going to be a big winning margin in the Nevada caucuses.

Before that debate took place, Mini-Mike had actually moved into slight polling leads in both Oklahoma and Arkansas, and was becoming competitive in a couple of the other Super Tuesday states, based solely on the strength of $300 million spent on TV and social media ads.  In polling released over the next 7-10 days, we will likely see those leads go poof!, as the impacts of his debate catastrophe begin to show up in the polling data.

I told you on Wednesday morning that there was no possible benefit for Bloomberg to appear in that debate: He wasn’t even on the ballot in Nevada – why take the risk of having exactly the horrific debate performance he in fact had? And there was no way this near-terminally boring old man who hadn’t participated in a debate setting in a dozen years was going to have a good night against a pack of desperate animals who have been doing nothing but debating and running their mouths for almost a damn year now.

Mr. Excitement is also not on the ballot in South Carolina, yet he has agreed to participate in this coming week’s Democrat debate in that state. Why? Well, now he pretty much has no choice, does he? Given that the South Carolina primary comes just 3 days before Super Tuesday, Tuesday night’s debate in Charleston will literally be Mini-Mike’s last gasp chance to stage a recovery from his massive failure in Vegas.

You have to believe he will have a better performance in Charleston than he did last Wednesday, just due to practice. In fact, he really did better in the second hour of his first debate, as he seemed to sort of gain his tiny footing on-stage and at least begin to fight back at his tormentors. Plus, he will have had 6 additional days to try to buy some of the other candidates, along with the moderators, off, which is his normal modus operandi. Any success in that realm would also be helpful.

But here’s the thing: This last desperate chance scenario did not need to happen. Mr. Excitement could have easily justified sitting out these two debates due to the fact of his absence from the ballots in those states. He could have stayed on the sidelines and relied on his massive wealth to buy enough Super Tuesday votes to get a couple of wins and a strong enough showing overall to impede Sanders’ quest to become the nominee.

But my view is that it is now too late for Bloomberg to recover from his blunder: Sanders’ coming big win in Nevada is going to lend his campaign an air of inevitability, one that will most likely lead to a narrow win in next Saturday’s South Carolina primary. At that point, the race to see who can accumulate the most delegates heading into July’s convention in Milwaukee will be over, and, if Biden and Warren drop their campaigns after March 3 as I believe they will, The Commie would even have a fighting chance of winning enough delegates over the next few months to prevail on a first ballot at that convention.

In the end, what we see here is that the Waterloo analogy is incredibly apt: Mr. Excitement’s decision to participate in the Las Vegas debate was a fatal strategic blunder committed by a little man consumed with unbridled hubris.

History repeats.

Bloomberg Would Have Been Better Off Tucked Away in Bed

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

On the bright side, at least he wasn’t standing on a box. – On the down side, he was the shortest person on the stage, and the visuals were not good. But, by god, he wasn’t going to let Trump be right about that box thing, which is exactly the reaction the President wanted to get, by the way. Hilarious.

The big, big, big winner of last night was without any doubt at all President Donald Trump. While Mini-Mike was getting his butt handed to him by every other candidate on the stage in Las Vegas, Mr. Trump held a massive rally of his own a couple of hours down the road in Phoenix.

The contrast between the two events could not have been more stark: The Trump rally a celebration of America in all her great, booming glory, and the Democrat debate a nasty, depressing series of complaints about societal wrongs, most of which are either imaginary or created by the very policies supported by the people standing on the stage yelling.

In a stark change from the demented Democrats’ prior debates, most of the yelling was directed not at President Trump, but at the little munchkin huddled behind his podium at the left end of the stage. Fauxcahontas kicked things off with this brutal take down of the tiny former Mayor:

Ouch. For Bloomberg, things only went downhill from there. Despite an embarrassingly pre-planned, softball question on “stop and frisk” lobbed at him by an obviously paid-off Lester Holt, Little Mikey’s answer was disjointed, insincere and filled with complete lies about his record.

When both Warren and Quid Pro Joe, of all people, went after him on the hundreds of non-disclosure agreements he has in place with aggrieved women and minorities who have filed complaints and lawsuits against him over the years, Bloomberg was obviously completely unprepared to address the question. He was similarly unprepared to answer a softball question lobbed at him by paid-off Chuck Todd about his tax returns.

This is a guy who has literally thousands of advisors working on his campaign – quite a contrast to the dozen or so Trump employed in his own campaign in 2016 – and he is so filled with hubris that he couldn’t be bothered to take the time to really prepare himself for a debate against 5 seasoned opponents. But we’re supposed to believe that a man this lazy and arrogant would be just great dealing with the Putins and the Xi’s of the world.

The other mistake Mr. Excitement made repeatedly was tossing out lame attempts at humor, all of which fell completely flat in an auditorium filled with radical leftist activists and career political hacks. The worst example came when he made a reference to The Commie being, well, a commie, a crack that would have worked just fine at any business conference in America – venues where Mini-Mike is used to speaking – but which elicited boos and I’m pretty sure even some hisses from last night’s crowd.

It was, in other words, just a terrible night for the multi-multi-times-multi-billionaire, a night that will not be helpful at all in advancing his attempted leveraged buyout of the Democrat Party. He’d have been much better off tucked into bed like Little Lord Fauntleroy and having his man servant bring him a nice bedtime snack consisting of Cristal champagne, canapes and caviar.

While his performance will not be helpful, the big question is whether or not it will do the former Mayor any long-term harm. The debate audience consisted of maybe 6 million people, and while Little Mikey will have to deal with some short-term criticism of his performance, a fawning and largely paid-off press corps probably won’t allow that to last very long.

Bloomberg’s real problem – and the problem for the Democrat Party as well – is that no one laid a glove on The Commie, who is on the verge of being the actual winner in each of the first three contested states, and who is surging in the polls in next week’s contest in South Carolina. As was discussed at one point during the debate, unless there is some major shift in momentum, Sanders is on a trajectory that will see him come out of the Super Tuesday contests on March 3 with a very large and potentially insurmountable lead in the delegate count.

Nothing that took place last night will do anything to slow that momentum. So, other than the President, The Commie came out as the biggest winner of this particular event.

The biggest loser tag must go to Amy Klobuchar. The lady from Univision who served as NBC’s token Hispanic moderator, there to ask questions only about Mexico and immigration, obviously had been assigned to take Klobuchar out, and did a pretty solid job of it in her attack on the senator’s inability to recall the name of Mexican President AMLO last week. When class nerd Preacher Pete chimed in on the attack over that silly non-issue, Klobuchar became visibly flustered and angry and never really recovered.

My question about Univision Lady and Univision panelists in general is, why does NBC always insist on stereotyping them, restricting them to asking only Latino-specific questions at these debates? Isn’t that kind of racist? Why do the folks at Univision continue to allow this pidgeon-holing take place?

Preacher Pete was his usual slick, totally-scripted, automatonic self, and no doubt scored points with Democrat voters who are susceptible to scripted talking-points robots. His big problem was of a visual nature: Like Nixon in 1960, Buttiegieg suffers from a bad case of 5 o’clock shadow, and obviously failed to shave right before the event. Not a good look under the bright lights of national TV.

Biden was Biden, yelling and ranting and claiming to have been the guy who wrote every bill, negotiated every treaty, and did every political deal that has been done since the Nixon Administration. Mainly, though, he just confused everyone watching. He is going nowhere with a bullet in this race.

Lieawatha, as previously mentioned, had some solid moments, mainly when she was attacking Bloomberg, and she had obviously been coached to be more assertive in this debate. But she is just so condescending and annoying, and all her BS stories about her fake childhood do more to harm her now than help her. She might get a slight boost in Nevada out of this performance, but is ultimately riding on the Going Nowhere train with Quid Pro Joe.

In the end, the most salient question of the night came not from any of the moderators, but from Preacher Pete, who, midway through the night, asked, “Why don’t we put forward someone who is actually a Democrat?” With the race now boiling down to a fight between a Commie and a guy who was a registered Republican while serving in his only elected office, it’s a good question.

In the post-debate analysis on CNN, it was Van Jones who correctly noted that the fact that none of the “actual” Democrats are likely to become this year’s nominee most likely means that the public believes there is something wrong with being an “actual” Democrat. You don’t say.

Jones – who is really the only person on CNN worth listening to these days – also had this to say about Bloomberg: “It was a disaster for Bloomberg. Bloomberg went in as the Titanic. Billion dollar machine, Titanic. Titanic, meet iceberg, Elizabeth Warren.”

He should’ve stayed at home.

New Hampshire Breeds More Chaos For The Democrats

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

Tired of all this WINNING yet? – While the Dow closed down by less than 1 percent, both the NASDAQ and S&P 500 managed record high closes for the second straight day despite indications from Federal Reserve Board Chair Jerome Powell that the Fed will not be lowering interest rates again at its next meeting.

Speaking of WINNING, Democrat looooosers were dropping like flies after poor finishes in last night’s New Hampshire primary. Andrew Yang was the first to end his campaign, in which he attempted to bribe his way to the nomination with the false promise of paying a “living wage” to every adult of $1,000. Just a few minutes behind Yang was Colorado Senator Michael Bennet, who most people didn’t know was in the race in any event.

A little bit later in the evening, some corrupt reporter – I never did find out who it was – tweeted a “scoop” that he/she had actually listened as billionaire Tom Steyer told his supporters that he was leaving the race, and many others picked up the “story” and repeated it. It turned out to be false, as Steyer, who has already wasted more than $200 million in the race to get to 1% in Iowa and 3% in New Hampshire, seems intent on wasting another few hundred million before finally giving up his ghost of a campaign. Cool.

The winner, of course, was The Commie, Bernie Sanders. The old Bolshevik  managed to outpace Preacher Pete Buttigieg by about 4,000 votes, similar to his initial vote margin in the Iowa Caucuses, where Preacher Pete ended up being awarded one more delegate by the Party’s “counters.” Despite his edge in the New Hampshire vote, The Commie was awarded the same number of delegates as the Preacher, leaving him still one behind in the Party’s bizarre method of awarding delegates, despite having collected about 10,000 more votes.

Because this is how the Democrat Party operates in the year 2020.

But the real stories of the night came with who finished in third place, and who didn’t manage to crack the top 3.

As I predicted yesterday, Amy Klobuchar had a strong showing, coming in third behind Preacher Pete and dominating the analyst panels on CNN and MSNBC.

Klobuchar probably shouldn’t get too used to grabbing so much of the spotlight, though. In New Hampshire, she benefited from an indecisive voter base in which almost half of Democrat voters didn’t make up their minds until the three days prior to Tuesday. This enabled her to benefit from a strong debate performance on Friday night, as well as the implosions being experienced by the previous favorites in the race.

The campaign moves next to Nevada, a caucus state in which heavy organizing is key. Klobuchar hasn’t had the funding needed to build much of an organization there, and is thus unlikely to do as well. With just 10 days left before that event, she has little time to really get into that race even if her strong NH finish results in a pile of new cash coming into her campaign.

South Carolina comes a week later, and she is barely even registering in polls there. Where Bill Clinton could finish an also-ran in New Hampshire in 1992 and then be pushed by the fawning news media into front-runner status, today’s corrupt media is too bought-in to promoting Preacher Pete and Mini-Mike Bloomberg as the great hopes to head off The Commie to spend much time pushing Sen. Klobuchar as an alternative. So, expect the talk around Klobuchar in the coming days to focus on the viability of her becoming a potential “moderate” running mate to balance a ticket headed by The Commie.

Then, of course, there were the big, big loooooosers of the night: Quid Pro Joe and Lieawatha, the two former “front-runners” in the race.

Think about this: Amy Klobuchar, who finished third, received more votes than both Crazy Uncle Joe and Fauxcahontas, combined. Neither candidate could even crack 10% of the vote. Given that these two had polled neck-and-neck in the state with The Commie since last April, that is a stunning result.

Biden was so certain he would have a horrible finish in New Hampshire that he cancelled his “celebration” party there and fled to South Carolina Tuesday afternoon so he could deliver a despicably pandering speech to a crowd that actually had some – as he calls them – “black and brown folks” in it.

After delivering her own concession speech, Little Mouth Always Running was seen trying to score some peyote and heading off to the nearest sweat lodge so she could re-calibrate her campaign’s strategy.

While all the drama in New Hampshire was taking place, Billionaire Bloomberg was spending another $30 million or so on ads in the big Super Tuesday states, which are the first ones where he will actually be on the ballot. By the time these other folks get to that point in the calendar, they’ll all be either broke or exhausted.

This is chaos, folks, a chaos that is setting up perfectly for a brokered convention in Milwaukee in July.

Finally, the story the media is ignoring this morning is the story about turnout. Total Democrat turnout was once again lower than expected, with 280,000 total votes cast in that primary, compared to expectations of more than 300,000. This is a depressed and floundering Party.

Meanwhile, GOP turnout wildly exceeded expectations, with more than 130,000 votes cast compared to projections of something around 100,000. The President received twice as many votes as Barack Obama, Bill Clinton or Ronald Reagan received in New Hampshire in their re-election bids.

And that is what President Donald Trump calls WINNING.

 

Here are my updated, post-New Hampshire odds for the ultimate winner of the Democrat nomination:

The Commie:     5 to 2

Mini-Mike:         3 to 1

Preacher Pete:  15 to 1

Klobuchar:        20 to 1

Quid Pro Joe:   100 to 1

Fauxcahontas:  100 to 1

Hillary Clinton at a brokered convention:  5 to 4

 

That is all.

An Amazing Trump News Friday – Updated

At the end of what has unarguably been the best news week President Donald Trump has ever experienced, the hits just keep on coming. The news cycles just become more numerous and faster-moving as this Administration gains momentum. So I thought I’d just put together quick post of short-takes on several of today’s major items of great news:

WINNING ALERT! Another amazing jobs report hits the books. – The Labor Department jobs report comes in at a whopping 225,000 new jobs created in January, blasting “expert” projections of 160,000. The unemployment rate ticks up slightly to 3.6% due to thousands more former discouraged workers coming back into the workforce. Upwards revisions of 5,000 jobs for December, 2,000 for November.

We really do need a more competent set of “experts.”

Joe Walsh admits Trump “is unbeatable.” – The insignificant little wormy ex-GOP congressman ended his idiotic campaign, making his announcement on corrupt CNN. Because of course he did. In the course of that interview, Walsh admitted the President can’t be beaten by any RINO challenger like himself and that obscure former governor of Massachusetts who is also pretending to campaign against him, adding that Trump “literally is the greatest threat to this country right now. Any Democrat would be better than Trump in the White House.”

Adios, Joe. Don’t let the door hit you in your fat ass on the way out.

James Woods is back on Twitter! – The magnificent former actor, who had his account suspended last April by the speech Nazis who censor conservative thought on that social media platform, suddenly showed back up last night, and boy, is he in fine form. Here’s his first post back:

Better late than never, I guess.Bloomberg is reporting that CIA NSC mole Alexander Vindman may soon be losing his gig. Vindman’s dismissal or reassignment [more likely due to politics] may be a part of a general house-cleaning being planned by National Security Advisor Robert O’Brien. O’Brien said earlier this week that the NSC White House staff could be cut in half at the end of this process. That would be a true benefit to the nation. No word if Vindman’s similarly corrupt twin brother might also get scooted out of the White House. Let’s hope so.

Trump supporters fill key House committee roles. – Two key Trump supporters, Jim Jordan and Mark Meadows, were moved into key House committee roles by Speaker Kevin McCarthy, who himself is proving to be a light years’ improvement over sleazy predecessor Paul Ryan. Jordan will replace Georgia’s Doug Collins as ranking Republican on the House Judiciary Committee, given Collins’ race for US Senator in his home state. Meadows will move into the ranking member seat Jordan is vacating on the House Oversight Committee. Good news for the President to have these two great men policing the corrupt actions of the Democrat majorities on these committees.

Finally, the Democrats just keep descending deeper and deeper into the depths of antisemitism. – Watch as Fauxcahontas, without hesitation, endorses the antisemitic views of an audience member:

Dear Jewish voters: The Democrats hate you and want you dead. When will you wake up and stop voting for them?

UPDATE:  Trump defeats Democrats’ baseless emoluments clause lawsuit. – Per a report from Bloomberg News:

President Donald Trump beat back a lawsuit by 215 congressional Democrats who say he has been violating the Constitution’s emoluments clauses by profiting from foreign government spending at his Washington hotel and other properties.

A federal appeals court in Washington on Friday dismissed the case, saying members of the House and Senate lacked the legal standing to sue the president.

“The Members can, and likely will, continue to use their weighty voices to make their case to the American people, their colleagues in the Congress and the President himself, all of whom are free to engage that argument as they see fit,” a three-judge panel of the federal appeals court in Washington said on Friday. “But we will not—indeed we cannot—participate in this debate, overturning an April trial court ruling.“ They heard arguments on Dec. 9 in Washington.

BOOM.

 

That is all.

Iowa Fallout: The Commie Ascending, Quid Pro Joe in Free Fall

Tired of all this WINNING yet? – All major stock indexes – the Dow, the NASDAQ and the S&P 500 –  closed a record highs on Thursday yet again as the Trump economy keeps chugging along. Wednesday’s ADP private sector jobs report for January came in at a whopping 291,000 jobs added, almost doubling “expert” projections of 150,000. That news, of course, was ignored by our corrupt national news media. The Labor Department non-farm jobs report comes out this morning.

The Commie declares “victory” in Iowa. – Why? Because he won. At least, he won by any rational measure. That measure would be the actual number of people who came out and cast their first round and second round lots with the old Bolshevik.

The Commie won the first round of voting by more than 6,000 over second place Preacher Pete, and then, after the non-viable candidates were eliminated and their voters had to either re-pledge themselves to other candidates or go home, The Commie won the second round by a more narrow margin. It was then and only then that the “counters” from the DNC running the Iowa process were able to rig a miniscule “win” for Preacher Pete, somehow managing through an allocation process no one understands to award 26.2% of the state delegates to the failed Mayor of South Ben to 26.1% for the do-nothing Senator from Vermont.

Tom Perez, the utterly corrupt head of the DNC, was so upset by Sanders’ victory declaration that he immediately ordered his toadies out in Iowa to re-canvass the vote. He does that not on the belief that it would somehow change any of the confused outcome, but in order to throw even more confusion into the process in order to further obscure Sanders’ clear win.

Because, hey, if they can’t rig the outcome they prefer, the next best thing is to coordinate with their media toadies to confuse the public about who really won. This is your Democrat Party in action. It’s all very transparent if you just pay attention.

But all this confusion over who “won” in Iowa kind of misses the point, anyway. There were two big stories coming out of that fiasco, both of them terrible news for the Democrats and the DNC:

  • Total voter turnout was somewhere around 170,000, which puts it in line with the Democrat turnout in Iowa for 2012, when Barack Hussein Obama His Own Self was running unopposed. Party officials had speculated that turnout would compare to the 2008 turnout, when almost 240,000 Iowans showed up to pick between Obama and the Fainting Felon. This low turnout number indicates a party headed for a sea-change loss election in November. Thus, it has been largely ignored by the corrupt news media.
  • Joe Biden is in free-fall now. He failed to win a single county or a single national delegate under the party’s Byzantine formula for allocation of delegates, even though he did receive slightly above 15% of the vote, at least if you believe the DNC “counters,” which you should not. This is terrible news for the DNC and the party’s major donor base, who had held out hope that Biden would be able to stave off The Commie.

Biden’s numbers are also now collapsing in other early primary states. In the two most recent polls out of New Hampshire, he comes in at just 11%, not even half of The Commie’s level of support. In South Carolina, where Biden has consistently held a 25-30% margin thanks to heavy support in that state’s Black community, a new Zogby Analytics poll shows his lead sitting at just 8% over The Commie. A recent Post and Courier poll pegs his lead at just 5%. Polls show Quid Pro Joe and The Commie running neck and neck in Nevada, the only other contest before Super Tuesday.

Right now it appears likely that Biden will run no better than a poor 4th place in New Hampshire, and probably will not win any delegates there, either. That from the guy that the DNC has promoted for 10 solid months as its most “electable” candidate. If the bottom falls out up there, then it seems possible now that the Unfrozen Caveman Senator could even lose in South Carolina and go into Super Tuesday without having won a single contest. If that happens, he is well and truly done.

Biden’s problem is simple: He is clearly too old and infirm for the job. That is obvious to anyone who actually pays attention to him. While Sanders is a little bit older than Quid Pro Joe, he at least is holding things together, despite his heart incident last October. But Biden often doesn’t know where he is on any given day, and increasingly looks lost while speaking to his paltry audiences.

He was able to get away with all of that up until voters actually began paying attention to the race, which has really just begun to happen over the last few weeks, as the caucus and primary contests approach. Voters are now tuning in, and what they see in Biden obviously disturbs them.

The reality of Biden – as opposed to the myth of “electability” that he and the DNC have promoted since last April – combined with the months-long headlines about his and Hunter Biden’s looting of the Ukraine while he served as Vice President, is why his numbers are in free-fall.

A reader asked yesterday if Biden would turn out to be this election cycle’s Jeb! Bush. I replied that he already is, but he just hasn’t quite figured it out yet. Jeb! himself didn’t figure it out until it was already over for him. Biden will, however, figure it out soon, perhaps after a loss in South Carolina, or no later than what will almost certainly become a disastrous showing on Super Tuesday.

My new odds for the Eventual Winner of the Democrat Party’s Nomination:

The Commie               7 to 4

Mini-Mike                  4 to 1

Fauxcahontas           10 to 1

Preacher Pete           10 to 1

Quid Pro Joe            30 to 1

Tom Steyer               30 to 1

Someone Else           2 to 1

Who, you ask, is that Someone Else? Well, who do you think?

 

That is all.

How the Democrats Rigged Iowa’s “Results”

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

So, here’s what actually happened in Iowa on Tuesday:

Just like clockwork, ABC and others reported Tuesday afternoon that people from the DNC showed up and “took over” the count early in the day.

The DNC then decided which results would be published, and when. The riggers had several clear objectives here: 1) disguise the true voter turnout for the caucuses, which was disastrously low, showing a Party headed for sea-change losses in November; 2) find a “winner” based on partial results other than The Commie; and 3) prop up Quid Pro Joe as best they could.

To achieve those three goals, the DNC carefully selected at least one precinct result from every Iowa County, as the Democrat State Chairman was careful to state during his press conference at 4:00 p.m. Central Time. This canard gives the appearance of some thoroughness and “fairness” in the count, while at the same time limiting it in a way that delivered the preferred “results.”

You almost have to admire the evil genius at work here, don’t you?

The carefully-selected 62% of the votes ultimately revealed meet the needs of showing someone – anyone – other than The Commie as the “winner.” That person turned out to be Preacher Pete, who had received more raw votes than anyone other than The Commie.

[If you are feeling doubtful here about what I’m telling you, ask yourself this question: Why just 62%? Where did that percentage come from? The State Chairman who got shoved out there to talk to the press repeatedly stated that they had all the vote totals, safe and secure. And how could they not by that time, given the low voter turnout? But, conveniently, not one single reporter present had the curiosity to question why 100% of the results were not announced yesterday. Why? Because they are all on board with the preferred narrative.] 

Quid Pro Joe’s vote totals were only about half of The Commie’s, so he was non-viable to be the DNC’s hand-picked stand-in “winner.” However, the DNC precinct-pickers were able to rig things so that the Unfrozen Caveman Senator came in at just above 15%, at least for now, providing the illusion that he will ultimately qualify to win some delegates from the state. Thus, while the media narrative related to Creepy Uncle Joe was negative overall, corrupt talking heads were able to end their analyses with some variation of “but he did well enough to win some delegates.”

Faucahontas didn’t even manage to win Pocahontas County, so she was non-viable as well.

Preacher Pete got to declare “victory” and steal the momentum that The Commie would have otherwise had coming out of Iowa. Even better, the failed Mayor of South Bend was able to make that declaration while campaigning New Hampshire, thus stealing even more of the Big Mo from The Commie.

By the time the full results are ultimately released later this week or next week – who knows at this point? –  the news cycle will have passed and moved on to State of the Union and today’s Senate acquittal of President Trump. Even if the results show a Commie win, the corrupt media will studiously ignore them on the claim that they amount to “old news.”

The same dynamic comes into play where the low voter turnout is concerned. Had the real numbers been reported Monday night as they should have been, the corrupt talking heads would have had no choice but to focus in on them, at least for awhile. But, coming now in the wake of this week’s other major events, CNN probably won’t bother to even mention them in a chyron at the bottom of their fake news screen.

Thus, The Commie, even though he was the candidate who clearly won the most raw votes Monday night, is cheated out of any appearance of being the Party’s front-runner. For the evil cretins who run the DNC, this rigging operation in Iowa staves off a media disaster for at least another week.

Sure will be fun to see how they cheat The Commie out of a win in New Hampshire, won’t it?

But what about Buttigieg? We should not for a moment believe that the Party leaders and major donors want to promote Preacher Pete, either. He was just the candidate they were able to prop up in this particular state. Buttigieg is wildly unpopular among the Party’s most important – and most taken-for-granted – constituency, Black voters. Preacher Pete somehow managed to find half a dozen African American women to use as props sitting right behind him during his “victory” speech, but he had to work very hard to find them:

Black voters hate this guy, and it has nothing to do with his being gay. South Bend is a horribly-segregated city, and Preacher Pete did nothing during his 8 long years as Mayor to do anything about it.

It is a plain and simple fact that no Democrat can win the presidency without carrying, at a minimum, 90% of the Black vote. Preacher Pete would be lucky to receive half of that.

So, he is definitely not the guy the DNC wants to end up rigging this process in favor of.

With the rapid collapse of Quid Pro Joe now in full gear, the Party riggers are obviously going to shift their efforts in favor of Mini-Mike Bloomberg. Mr. Excitement. They’ve already shifted, in fact, announcing last week that they have changed their debate qualifying requirements to meet the billionaire’s personal needs. No doubt, they’ll get him that box to stand on, too.

So, as I’ve talked about repeatedly here over the last three years, this is just how today’s Democrat Party works. These people have no intention whatsoever of leaving the selection of their presidential nominee to the riff-raff in their voter base – these caucuses and primaries are just for show. The DNC’s job is to create and somehow maintain it’s narrative, in careful coordination with its corrupt media toadies, throughout the sham process.

In fact, this entire proportional awarding of delegates in each state was put into place for the specific purpose of ensuring there will be a split convention. Because a split convention is the easiest way for the DNC riggers to select the candidate of their choice, while making it seem like the voters had a voice.

Right now, they’re desperately trying to rig things in favor of Mini-Mike. But should Mr. Excitement falter – which seems inevitable, frankly – a split convention gives the riggers a chance to rig things for a “white knight” to ride in to save the Party. Or, if it’s the Pantsuit Princess again, waddle in to save the Party.

This is just how today’s Democrats roll, folks. Get used to it.

 

That is all.

The Democrats Are Rigging Their Process Again

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

If you believe a single word the Democrat Party is telling you about the Iowa Caucus results, please give me a call because boy, do I have a deal on some Central Texas property for you.

No, seriously, if you believe anything the Democrat Party tells you, then you certainly are buying the propaganda from the Chinese government that it, like, totally has that coronavirus awesomely under control. I know, right?

If you believe the Democrat Party today, then you no doubt believed Adam Schiff on Monday when he said that President Trump will give Alaska away to the Russians unless the Senate removes him from office. If you believe the Democrat Party today, then you were no doubt completely reassured last night when Fox News brought out former DNC Chairman Donna Brazile – who fed Hillary Clinton debate questions in advance and played a major role in rigging the party’s 2016 nominating process against Bernie Sanders – to reassure us that, hey, don’t worry, everything’s on the up and up out there in Iowa.

Folks, we are talking about counting maybe, what, a few hundred thousand votes here? I personally could have had it all totaled up, precinct by precinct, candidate by candidate, wrapped it and put a bow on it by about 10 p.m. CT last night using an abacus. I could have had it all done with a telephone, a pencil, a note pad and my aging brain by 10:30.

But the Democrat Party, the Party that has already clearly and unambiguously demonstrated to the world that it had no compunction whatsoever about rigging its nominating process in 2016, doing its best to rig the general election a few months later that year, and working its ass off to rig this year’s process to prevent an outright takeover by The Commie and his Marxist hordes, tells us that the whole thing fell apart last night because some smart phone app created by a company owned by Hillary Clinton operatives failed, and we’re supposed to just say, yeah, ok, you guys wouldn’t lie, would you? C’mon.

What, because a smart phone app fails, the party’s precinct chairmen are too stupid and dependent on technology that they are no longer capable of actually dialing a phone number and calling in their results? Most of these precincts only had a few dozen people show up. Maybe half of them had to count numbers into the hundreds. Only a handful had to count above 1,000.

But we’re supposed to believe that hey, a smart phone app failed, so it’s totes reasonable that nobody knows who did what this morning. Has the entire state of Iowa turned into Palm Beach and Broward County?

Or maybe the Democrat Party has now so devolved into leftist dogma that it really just wanted to create the situation we saw last night where everyone walked away with a participation trophy. We had the spectacle of no fewer than three candidates – Preacher Pete, The Commie and Lieawatha – declaring victory.

Quid Pro Joe – who by all anecdotal reports finished a poor fourth in most precincts – didn’t declare victory, but he did tell his few dozen demented followers that “we will walk away with our share” of delegates. No one knows what the Unfrozen Caveman Senator meant by that, and neither does he.

I warned you on Sunday that all the signs of this thing being rigged were out there, and here we sit this morning, with all the signs of its still being rigged having come about. It’s obvious that Party leaders didn’t like the way the actual caucus voting process went, so they are in the process of creating a final outcome that they can live with, and working hard to make sure that everyone involved fully understands the talking points before they make that outcome public. This is just how these corrupt people operate.

And hey, the DNC literally owns this nominating process, so they can rig it any way they want to. What the rest of us need to understand is that, if we keep electing Democrats to office, our general elections will be rigged in the same manner. Hell, they’ve already been able to make that happen in parts of Florida, Arizona and California. If we don’t stop them, it’s just a matter of time before the entire country is rigged.

As we watch this rigging process play itself out, everyone needs to take a moment to reflect on the fact that the people who are claiming they are incapable of counting 200,000 votes without a smart phone app are the very same people who want to be in charge of your health care. Breathtaking.

They won’t stop, until they are stopped.

UPDATE: About a minute after I posted this piece, President Trump summed Iowa up in a single tweet as only he can do:

Hilarious. And true.

That is all.

Democrats in a Super Panic on Super Bowl Sunday

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

No, the Des Moines Register Poll did not kill itself. – The leaders in the Democrat Party are now in full-blown panic as The Commie closes in on a win in Iowa. So panicked, in fact, that they almost certainly spiked the final Des Moines Register poll – a tradition for 76 years running – that was to be released on Sunday.

The narrative being pushed by the corrupt news media is that the Register, and its co-sponsor, CNN (because of course it’s CNN) decided to scrap the poll because one of the people conducting the poll consistently mispronounced the name of Pete Buttigieg. Which is about the lamest false narrative the Democrats and their media toadies have ever attempted to push.

With other polls released this week showing The Commie with a clear lead – which has expanded as the week has gone on – it’s pretty obvious that the folks at the DNC and CNN didn’t want the Register poll coming out the day before the caucuses showing an even bigger lead for Sanders.

This of course raises the specter that the DNC may well be planning to falsify the results of the caucuses, and they thus didn’t want to have a Register poll showing The Commie with a double-digit lead in advance of some sort of miracle “win” by Quid Pro Joe or CNN’s favorite candidate, Little Big Mouth Always Running. Do not be surprised if this sort of “upset” ends up being the official result tomorrow night.

Democrat leaders are so panicked by the looming acquittal of President Trump and what is certain to be a gangbusters State of the Union Address Tuesday evening, in fact, that John Freaking Kerry was overheard in the lobby of a Des Moines hotel loudly discussing the possibility of jumping into the race in order to save the party from a total Commie takeover:

DES MOINES, Iowa — Former Secretary of State John Kerry — one of Joe Biden’s highest-profile endorsers — was overheard Sunday on the phone at a Des Moines hotel explaining what he would have to do to enter the presidential race amid “the possibility of Bernie Sanders taking down the Democratic Party — down whole.”

Sitting in the lobby restaurant of the Renaissance Savery hotel, Kerry was overheard by an NBC News analyst saying “maybe I’m f—ing deluding myself here” and explaining that in order to run, he’d have to step down from the board of Bank of America and give up his ability to make paid speeches. Kerry said donors like venture capitalist Doug Hickey would have to “raise a couple of million,” adding that such donors “now have the reality of Bernie.”

Asked about the call later on Sunday, Kerry said that he was “absolutely not” contemplating joining the Democratic primary race. He reiterated this sentiment in a tweet later, saying that “any report otherwise is f—ing (or categorically) false.” Minutes later, he deleted the tweet and reposted it without the expletive.

Yes, friends, the Democrat Party is so utterly bereft of any serious presidential talent that some think John Kerry might be a stronger candidate than Mini-Mike Bloomberg or a rapidly fading Quid Pro Joe.

Speaking of Mini-Mike, President Trump hilariously trolled him with this Sunday morning Tweet:

Now, the President’s statement about Bloomberg’s box negotiation was no doubt true, and it was designed to extract a specific response from Mini-Mike. Predictably, Bloomberg responded within an hour by outright denying that he has any desire to stand on a box or other platform in the coming Democrat debates.

This means that Mini-Mike now has a choice of either proving himself to be an outright liar by going ahead and standing on a box or stool to make himself look as tall as his competitors in the debates, or forego the platform and watch his poll numbers collapse when viewers realize he really is only about 5 feet tall.

There is a reason why only one president in the television era – Jimmy Carter – was less than 6 feet tall. Trump fully understands that, which is why he taunted Mini-Mike with that tweet.

And Bloomberg, every bit as panicked all every other prominent Democrat today, fell for it hook, line and sinker.

This is glorious.

Update: Now CNN has fallen for Trump’s trolling of Bloomberg as well:

Democrats: Who Will be the Last Elderly, Pasty-Faced White Man Standing?

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

A picture is worth 1,000 words. – Two photos taken in Iowa on Thursday illustrate why the Democrat party and its corrupt media toadies are so desperate to execute a coup d’etat on President Donald Trump. The first photo is of a Quid Pro Joe Biden rally attended by about 25 people. The second is of President Trump’s massive crowd of thousands:

Image may contain: one or more people, crowd and indoor, possible text that says 'BIP.N The scene in Newton, lowa'

Image may contain: one or more people, crowd, stadium and basketball court

Most fake polls continue to try to create the notion in the public’s collective mind that Biden and other Democrat candidates lead President Trump nationally, but none of the pollsters really believe that. If they did, they wouldn’t continue to intentionally over-sample Democrats. They know what’s coming in November.

Indeed, a new Gallup poll, complete with its own over-sampling of Democrats, tells us exactly what an almost hopeless, uphill climb the Democrats have in this race. Look at how voter satisfaction regarding a host of pressing issues has improved under President Trump:

Image

That is +22% on the economy; +18 on fighting terrorism; + 15 on military strengh; +14 on race relations; +9 on reducing crime.

Those results are stunning, and they scare the hell out of Democrats.

The panic among Democrats is palpable now, especially when one observes how the race for their presidential nomination is trending. Just as we have predicted all along, Joe Biden is no longer the front-runner in this race, having been surpassed just before the primary season begins by Bernie Sanders in several new national polls. Sanders also now leads in most Iowa and New Hampshire polls, and will come out of those contests with a ton of momentum should he win them both.

The literal sole rationale for a Biden candidacy is his supposed “electability.” If he can’t even prevail over The Commie in the race’s first two contests, that rationale will be well and truly shattered.

The biggest problem for Democrat does not lie in Biden’s looming collapse, but in who is rising to surpass him when he falls. It’s not just The Commie, who is a year older than even Biden. The Commie’s ceiling is less than 50% in this primary, and he has pretty much no chance at all of getting to the summer DNC convention with a majority of the delegates.

No, the biggest problem is who is rising after The Commie. That comes in the form of ex-New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg, yet another pasty-faced white guy who older than both Biden and Sanders. Thanks to having already run through well over a quarter-billion dollars in his TV ad campaign, Bloomberg has now risen to fourth place in the national polls, running over Preacher Pete and no threatening to surpass a rapidly-fading Lieawatha for third place.

Due to his late entry into the race, Bloomberg is making the strategic calculation of not participating in Iowa or New Hampshire, or in the second tranche of primaries in South Carolina and Nevada, where Biden and Sanders currently lead, respectively. Mini-Mike is instead keeping his powder dry for Super Tuesday, March 6, and its collection of big-delegate hauls in states like California, Texas and Massachusetts. If Mr. Excitement can break through in one of those states, he could become the third main force in the race.

After that, it will be a war of attrition, as all the under-funded protected minority and female candidates fall by the wayside. At the end of the day, the most likely scenario when convention time comes around is that the “Party of Diversity” will have three elderly, pasty-faced white men leading in the delegate count.

Barring a Hillary Clinton or – much less likely – Michelle Obama offering themselves up as the Party’s savior on a second ballot during the convention, the Democrat Party nomination is most likely going to go to the last elderly, pasty-faced white guy standing.

Hilarious. And totally appropriate.

That is all.

Donald Trump Just Keeps on WINNING for America and Americans

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

Tired of all this WINNING yet? – As the demented, depraved, despicable and disloyal House Democrats were advancing their impeachment scam to the Senate on Wednesday, President Donald J. Trump was doing what he does best:  WINNING for America and the American people.

About 30 minutes after San Fran Nan and her House manager clownshow pep squad held their morning press conference, President Trump hosted a set of Chinese and U.S. dignitaries at the White House signing ceremony for the Phase I trade agreement between the two countries:

Image may contain: 3 people, suit

As you can see, the Dow leapt up over the 29,000 level as the President was speaking, and it remained there for the rest of the day, closing at an all-time high. All other major U.S. stock indexes finished the day at record levels.

The WINNING is only going to get better today, since as I’m typing this up, Iowa Senator Joni Ernst is telling Maria Bartiromo that the Senate will pass the massive US/Mexico/Canada Agreement (USMCA) at 11:00 ET this morning. The White House plans to hold a presidential signing ceremony for that major deal early next week, when the WINNING will continue.

Meanwhile, while all that WINNING was taking place, San Fran Nan held a presser at which she announced her House Manager Clownshow Pep Squad, pictured below.

Image may contain: 8 people

There they are in all their carnival midway glory, folks. All that’s missing is the bearded lady and wild man of Borneo, although Jabba the Nadler is a great stand-in for him.

In introducing her latest scam clown show cast, Pelosi promised that they would conduct themselves in a “solemn and prayerful” manner. She then held a celebratory signing ceremony, complete with gold-plated signing pens on which the word “United” was misspelled.

I kid you not, the Democrats are so damn divisive that they cannot even spell the word “United.”

Pelosi’s behavior during this celebration was so bizarre and at odds with her public statements that even people at CNN were disturbed by it all:

Once the signing party was completed and the misspelled pens had been passed out to the assembled circus clowns, Pelosi released the House Managers to hand-carry the articles of impeachment over to the Senate, in another traditional, solemn and prayerful exercise. Here is a shot of the Managers heading over to the Senate:

In other official Democrat Party news, one of their former leading contenders for the 2020 nomination – at least according to all the folks at CNN and MSNBC who put him on-air about 200 times – the Creepy Porn Lawyer, Michael Avenatti, was arrested yet again out in Los Angeles. To make things even better, this time he was arrested while he was at a license revocation hearing before the California State Bar!

As reported by The Federalist:

A new filing in the case United States v. Avenatti shows an arrest warrant has been issued for former Stormy Daniels lawyer Michael Avenatti. An image shows Avenatti being led out of the court by federal agents while he attended a hearing at the State Bar of California in Los Angeles.

Avenatti was at the State Bar of California for a disciplinary hearing for allegedly doctoring a document used to scam a client out of $840,000. Avenatti was allegedly funneling this money from his client for his personal use.

Here he is, being taken away by agents for booking:

Image

That, folks, is WINNING, BIGLY.

But wait, there’s even more WINNING! – Following Tuesday evening’s “debate” on CNN, Fauxcahontas angrily refused to shake the offered hand of The Commie after the two had had a tense back and forth over whether or not he had told her during a private meeting last year that he thought she should not run because it wasn’t possible for a woman to win the presidency.

Last night, CNN released a clip of that confrontation, complete with audio and subtitles:

Full Transcript:

Fauxcahontas: I think you called me a liar on national TV.

Commie: What?

Fauxcahontas: I think you called me a liar on national TV.

Commie: Let’s not do it right now. You want to have that discussion, we’ll have that discussion.

Fauxcahontas: Anytime. You called me a liar. You told me…

Sanders: All right. Let’s not do it now…

Steyer: I don’t want to get in the middle of it…I just want to say hi, Bernie. [What a weasel this guy is.]

Sanders: Yeah, good. Ok.

[End]

First of all, who hasn’t called Elizabeth Fake Indian Warren a damn liar? This woman has publicly and shamelessly lied about every single aspect of her life, and has been caught [fake] red-handed doing it time after time after time. In this contrived controversy, if you have to take someone’s word for it, the odds really favor the Commie.

But hey, these are Democrats we’re talking about here, people who view every second of their pathetic lives through the lens of identity politics. So, let them just fight it out, because every moment Democrats spend tearing themselves apart is a moment of WINNING for America.

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.

Biden Goes Full-on Fascist in Targeting Fossil Fuel Executives for Prison

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

Remember, Quid Pro Joe is the “moderate” among the leading Democrat presidential contenders. – Earlier this week, Joe Biden promised to imprison fossil fuel executives for the alleged impacts their companies have had on the climate in a clear effort to pander to the Democrat Party’s radical base. In making the pledge, Biden – the so-called “moderate” in the Democrat field of candidates – joins leftist radicals like Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth warren in promising not to just further regulate coal, oil and natural gas in the U.S. but to imprison executives from those key U.S. industries.

As reported by Joshua Caplan at Breitbart, Biden made the remarks during a campaign event attended by dozens in Peterborough, New Hampshire:

“If we don’t stop using fossil fuels–” an attendee began a question to the candidate.

“We’re all dead,” Biden interrupted.

Earlier in the event, Biden vowed as president to hold energy giants liable for global warming and made a pledge to even jail executives.

“We have to set sort of guide rails down now, so between the years 2021 and 2030, it’s irreversible – the path we set ourselves on. And one of which is doing away with any substance for fossil fuels – number one,” Biden said.

“Number two, holding them liable for what they have done,” he said of fossil fuel executives, “particularly in those cases where your underserved neighborhoods and – you know the deal, okay. And by the way, when they don’t want to deliver, put them in jail. I’m not joking about this.”

Here’s a video clip:

Ok, so, he’s “not joking” about putting people who run companies in fully-regulated industries in jail for doing things their companies all had local, state and federal government permits to do. Let’s be clear about this: Both the coal and oil and gas industries are regulated by all of those levels of government. Literally every action any company in either industry makes requires a permit by some government agency to make.

Local governments regulate their traffic, truck sizes on specific roadways, their dust and noise creation; state governments regulate their surface mining, pit mining, drilling and hydraulic fracturing operations. Oil and gas pipelines that do not cross state lines are fully regulated by state agencies; those that do cross state lines are regulated by both state and federal agencies. Refineries and import/export facilities are regulated by agencies/commissions/councils at all levels of government.

This has been the case since these industries were conceived and instituted, and yet now every leading candidate for the Democrat Party’s presidential nomination proposes to toss company executives into prison for undertaking the production of the fuel sources that drive the U.S. and global economy, all of which was permitted and licensed in advance by a vast array of government entities. This is what Quid Pro Joe and the other leading Democrats propose now to retroactively turn into crimes.

This is full-on fascism, folks. It is brutish, unthinking, moronic thuggery. And of course, it’s exactly where the global religion of Climate Change wants to take our society: Into the pits of socialist fascism.

You could never make this stuff up. Not in a million years.

 

That is all.

Some Political Predictions for 2020 – A Year of WINNING

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

As 2019 comes to an end, several aspects of the political situation in the United States and globally are becoming clear. – After a very eventful year during which the Democrat/Media/Deep State Axis of Disinformation threw everything they could think of at President Donald Trump, he is now emerging as the United States emerged in the wake of the destruction of the Soviet Union, as the only real political superpower remaining.

The Democrats, meanwhile, are in a shambles. The impeachment scam run by San Fran Nan, Bugeyes Schiff and Jabba the Nadler has had the unintended consequence actually strengthening President Trump’s polling numbers to the point that he now holds leads over every major Democrat candidate in 3 of the 4 most recently-released polls, and has a double digit lead in the key states of Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin.  With the Republicans able to control the process for a Senate trial, this polling dynamic promises to only get worse in the coming weeks.

Meanwhile, their Party’s presidential field is scaring the public to death. Joe Biden is a doddering, bumbling shell of a human being who is desperately trying to avoid being prosecuted for looting the Ukraine with his ne’er-do-well son before he can win the Democrat Party’s nomination; The Commie is so bankrupt of any idea that does not involve stealing and wasting Other People’s Money that he has had to enlist the help of congress’s most notorious nitwit, AOC, to keep his campaign going; Fauxcahontas has seen her campaign stagnate under the weight of too many bald-faced lies about her personal life; Preacher Pete peaked in July at 8% in the polls and lacks the appeal to move any higher than that; Nanny Bloomberg has managed to secure just 5% support with his $150 million ad campaign spend, and the rest of the field is too insignificant to waste words on.

Put simply, the Democrats enter 2020 desperately in need of a new candidate, some dynamic, truly appealing, vibrant new national figure who could excite their demented voter base and give them some shred of hope of mounting a competitive effort against the incumbent President next Fall. But the only thing they have waiting in the wings for the right opening to step into the fray is the Pantsuit Princess, the Coughing Crook, the Fainting Felon, the Grasping Grifter, the Cackling Crank.  You know her as Hillary Rodham Clinton. Not a good look, Democrats. America has already been there and done that, twice. Are you really going to let her go for the presidential loser hat trick?

All of that and so much more points us to a fascinating 2020 to come. Here are some predictions on how it will all play out:

  • Pelosi will relent on her failed, idiotic tactic of withholding the articles of impeachment and transmit them to the Senate shortly after congress reconvenes on January 7. At the same time, she will authorize her carnival freak show committee chairs to institute the impeachment process permanently, so they can mount yet another new scam later in the year;
  • The Senate trial will last barely a week, as 51 Republicans and one Democrat – Joe Manchin – will vote to acquit President Trump following the presentation of the case by the House Managers. RINO senators Mutt Romney and Lisa Murkowski will vote “present”;
  • Communists across the globe will become incredibly excited when The Commie ekes out narrow wins in both the Iowa Caucus and New Hampshire primary, with Preacher Pete Buttigieg running a close second in both states;
  • The Commie/Preacher Pete boomlet will quickly run aground, however, on the shoals of the African American vote in South Carolina and the Hispanic vote in Nevada, which will carry Quid Pro Joe to closer-than-expected wins in those next two contests on February 29;
  • Super Tuesday on March 3 will flush the deadwood out of the Democrat primary system. Bloomberg will see his strategy of skipping the first four contests come a crapper, as his spend of $300 million by then will gain him no better than 5th place finishes in any state. Biden will win both California and Texas, the big prizes of the day, along with several other states, but his small margins of victory will prevent him from piling up a big delegate lead. Warren will win Massachusetts, Sanders will prevail in his home state of Vermont and neighboring New Hampshire and Maine, keeping both senators in the race. Buttigieg will win no state on Super Tuesday, but will fight on as the only remaining protected “miniority” candidate as Cory Booker, Andrew Yang and Tulsi Gabbard finally give up their ghosts of a campaign;
  • Bloomberg will also remain in the race and keep spending tons of money in anti-Trump ads because, in case you haven’t figured this out yet, he’s not really running for the office, but as a proxy for the Democrat National Committee, which is flat, dead broke;
  • At some point in the Spring, the Democrat/Media/Deep State Axis of Disinformation will create a new fake “scandal” out of whole cloth and mount yet another impeachment effort, complete with more rounds of Soviet-style hearings led by Commissars Schiff and Jabba. They will vote out new articles of impeachment during the week of the Republican National Convention in late August. This is as predictable as the sun rising in the East;
  • Also in the Spring, shortly after the Democrats have begun their next impeachment scam, the public arrests and perp walks coming out of the investigation by U.S. Attorney John Durham and Attorney General William Barr will commence. Those arrests will take place simultaneously, and involve most, but not all, of the major figures who led the DOJ/CIA/FBI Spygate operation and Coup Cabal. The corrupt news media will use the occasion will do its furious best to smear the reputations of Barr and Durham and any other prosecutor who becomes enlisted in the operation, because hey, that’s what our corrupt news media does;
  • Shortly after the arrests have taken place, Barr and Durham will hold a joint press conference during which they will let it be known that these arrests are a beginning, not an end, and that Durham and his team are still building cases targeting other, possibly higher officials in the Obama Administration. A few days later, Barack and Michelle Obama and Bill and Hillary Clinton will be seen walking the beaches in non-extradition treaty countries;
  • Predictably, the system of awarding delegates proportionally rather than winner-take-all will ensure that no candidate will enter the July Democrat National Convention with the majority of delegates needed to secure the nomination on the first ballot. But Biden will win on the second ballot, when the “Super Delegates” get to vote, due to the myth of his “electability.” Biden will choose Buttigieg as his running mate in order to add “diversity” to the Democrat ticket;
  • In kicking off his acceptance speech, Biden will say that “It’s fantastic to be here in the great state of Wyoming!” The convention is being held in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. His campaign will go downhill from there;
  • The Commie, angry that the Party has once again rejected his Marxist siren song, will announce he is running as an “independent,” and will choose AOC as his running mate despite the fact that she is five years too young to serve as Vice President, a fact that AOC and the Twitter Outrage Mob will denounce as a relic of “white male supremacy”;
  • The Democrat/Media/Deep State Axis of Disinformation’s latest impeachment sham will backfire once again, adding another 4% of the popular vote to the President’s support base;
  • Despite massive Democrat voter fraud efforts that inflate Biden’s vote total by 2 to 4 million votes, President Trump will win 52% of the popular vote in the November election to Biden’s 40%. The Sanders/Ocasio-Cortez independent ticket will come in with just 5%, which is about the percentage of Democrat voters who make up the Twitter Outrage Mob;
  • Much of Trump’s margin of victory – which will include a whopping 370 electoral votes – will be due to the fact the he will receive 20% of the African American vote and almost 40% of Hispanic votes. He will also become the first Republican in modern times to pull a majority of he Jewish vote, as Jewish folks become increasingly aware of the fact that all of these attacks on their people are taking place in cities that have been run by Democrats for decades. The corrupt media will continue to call the President a “racist” and an “anti-Semite” despite those results;
  • Biden and all other Democrats will refuse to accept the results of the election, attributing their latest failure to mythical “voter suppression” efforts by Trump and the Republicans. They will beef up George Soros’s funding of Antifa and other radical leftwing riot crews. The resulting mass riots in major, Democrat-run cities will make those seen following the 2016 election look like a day in the park;
  • The Democrat mayors will blame the riots and looting and carnage on President Trump.

Some things are just too predictable.

Happy New Year!

That is all.

Harris Drops Out, Leaving a Snowy-White Democrat Field Behind

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

[Note: Today’s Campaign Update will be on a delayed morning schedule from November 30 through  December 4.]

What are the Democrats going to do about all these racist…ummm…Democrats???? – Kamala Harris became the latest of the 6,000 or so Democrat presidential candidates to drop out of the race on Tuesday, and naturally the Democrat/Media propaganda complex ran with the “America is a racist nation” narrative in response.

Let’s examine that notion for a moment and take it to its logical conclusion.

Kamala Harris ended her campaign for one reason and one reason only, and that is because registered Democrat voters told liberal pollsters that they don’t plan to vote for the California Democrat Senator in the Democrat Party’s upcoming Democrat primaries and Democrat caucuses. The reality is that, if she wasn’t polling down in the low single digits among these Democrat voters, this Democrat Senator would still be a candidate for the Democrat nomination.

There are no Republicans, or conservatives, or independents involved in this equation. The simple fact of the matter is that Kamala Harris is ending her campaign because she has been utterly and completely rejected by a bunch of racist, sexist….Democrats. That’s according to the Democrat/media’s own narrative.

Faced with this despicably false narrative, it is even more instructive to observe exactly which candidates have managed to gain so much support from Democrat voters that they have forced Harris from the race. According to the RealClearPolitics average of the most current polls, Harris trails five other candidates, all of whom have one thing in common: They are all as white as white can be.

Not a minority among them. No Hispanics, even though the Democrat voters could have shown support for Texan Julian Castro. No Asians, even though Andrew Yang is in the candidate field. No African Americans, even though both Harris and Cory Booker happen to be in the field.

Just a bunch of white folks, and boy, what a collection of white folks they are:

In first place is the nation’s Unfrozen Caveman Senator, Quid Pro Joe Biden, a pasty white guy from either Delaware or Pennsylvania depending which side the bed he happens to wake up from each day, a 77 year-old fossil from another time who brags about working with fellow pasty white segregationists during the Nixon Administration and thinks “malarky” makes for a catchy 23-skidoo campaign slogan that will attract Millenial voters.

Next up is The Commie, Bernie Sanders, a 78 year-old pasty white guy from Vermont, a life-long Bolshevik who has never worked a day in the private sector or accomplished anything real in his entire life.

Currently in third place is Little Princess Gonna Take All Your Wampum, Elizabeth Warren. Warren is as white as the driven snow, but managed to advance herself into lucrative positions in life by lying about actually being a Native American. Now, that’s the kind of “diversity” racist Democrat voters really admire.

In fourth place is Preacher Pete, the very white, 37 year-old Mayor of a college town in Indiana who regularly polls at 0% among those racist African American Democrat voters.

Next up is the newly-insurgent Michael Bloomberg, the billionaire ex=Mayor of New York City who is even whiter and older than Creepy Uncle Joe.

Taken together, those five pasty-white, mostly-elderly, not-minority-in-any-way candidates currently receive 74% of the total polling support from Democrat voters. Not Republicans, not Independents, not any broad cross-section of “Americans” and not among a bunch of rednecks out here in Flyover Country: DEMOCRATS.

The true fact of the matter is that Kamala Harris failed to inspire passion among the Democrat base because she is a horrible candidate who ran a horrible campaign. Given that she is also reportedly a horrible excuse for a human being who slept her way into political power and is accused of abusing her staff, this is really  not at all surprising. She was supposed to be the female version of Barack Hussein Obama, but instead turned out to be just a cross between Sheila Jackson Lee and Amy Klobuchar.

If “racism” or “sexism” has anything to do with Harris’s rejection, then Democrats have only to look into the mirror to see who those sexist racists are.

That is all.

Michael Bloomberg Formally Launches His Phony Candidacy

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

This is the Democrats’ great new hope? Trump’s a shoe-in. – In the grand tradition of awful presidential campaign announcement videos – like the one of Fauxcahontas pretending to cook up some American Indian food in her kitchen while slugging down a beer – former Democrat Mayor Michael Bloomberg formally announced his entry into the race over the weekend with this wretched posting on Instagram:

Yeah, that’s really gonna shake up the race, huh? Bloomberg has all the energy of a hibernating bear and the charm of the average New York City street vendor. Check out that posture – what message is this 77 year-old man attempting to communicate to his audience by perching himself pelvis-forward in that tiny chair?

And you have to love the little message box that is superimposed atop his crotch, saying “Send me your questions for #AskMike.” The first question, obviously placed there by an order-obeying staffer, is “What’s your favorite pizza?” Yes, surely, that pressing question is no doubt on the collective hive mind of every potential Democrat voter who has surveyed the existing field of candidates and come away wondering “can these idiots really deliver the grade of pepperoni I truly want? And what about the anchovies and extra cheese?”

Think about that for a second: Remember that these Democrats never do or say anything in public that hasn’t been polled or focus group tested. You’re telling me that Bloomberg paid someone good money to come up with this?

Of course, here’s the dirty little secret in all of this: Bloomberg isn’t in this race to win the Democrat presidential nomination. He’s in this race so he can receive the cheaper political candidates’ rates as he invests a few hundred million dollars in TV and social media ads. Those ads won’t target Quid Pro Joe, Fauxcahontas, The Commie or Preacher Pete, like any serious candidate for the nomination would do. They will target President Donald Trump.

Bloomy isn’t really a candidate for the presidency, he’s part of the resistance. He knows he can’t win this nomination after watching fellow idiot billionaire Tom Steyer drop a hundred mil or so of his own money to finally get to the point where he is polling 1% in the national polls.

But he also knows the Democrat Party is broke, with the GOP out-raising it by a factor of almost 10 to 1. The party’s base is fractured, and its gigantic field of candidates ensures that the money invested by all the pro-Democrat super PACs will remain fractured as well for quite some time to come.

So, Mayor Big Gulp could pour his money into one or more of those Super PACs or into some dark money “issues advocacy” groups, and is very likely already doing that. He could also donate gobs of money to the Democrat National Committee, but that would be controlled by doofuses like DNC Chairman Tom Perez. By pretending to be a candidate himself, Bloomberg gets a lot more bang for the buck. More importantly, he is able to fully control the message.

But if his first video offering is any indication of his messaging prowess, he is, like Steyer, most likely going to be wasting his money.

Somewhere, President Trump is laughing. It’s hard to blame him.

That is all.

How Pete Buttigieg is Triangulating His Way to the Top of the Democrat Heap

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

Has Pete Buttigieg found the fairway for getting to the Democrat 2020 nomination? – It’s beginning to look as if he might just have stumbled into it. Or a better way to say might be that he has, to borrow a Clintonian term, ‘triangulated’ his way into it.

With new polls showing Preacher Pete, the middling mayor of a mid-size, racially-torn city in the mid-size mid-western state of Indiana, suddenly jumping out to strong leads in polls in both Iowa and New Hampshire, it has become time to take the 37 year-old seriously. Readers will remember that, way back in March I predicted that Buttigieg would become one of two media-created “rising stars” in the Democrat field, with the other being Andrew Yang. Ok, so far I’m just one for two, but there’s still time for Yang and his blatant $1,000 per month effort to outright buy votes to catch fire at some point.

The interesting thing about Preacher Pete is that he has wiggled his way up to the top of the field in the first two caucus/primary states by channeling Bill Clinton and his 1992 campaign strategy of being all things to all people. While Elizabeth Warren has been out there going as far to the left as Fidel Castro in order to steal the Party’s very sizable communist vote away The Commie, and Joe Biden has been focusing on securing the African American vote by telling South Carolinians that Republicans really just want to go back to Jim Crow laws that Democrats in fact created and getting the senior citizen vote with the 1968 tactic of claiming marijuana is a “gateway drug,” Buttigieg has managed to thread his way right in between them to capture the Party’s “middle.”

Just as Bill Clinton understood 27 years ago, Preacher Pete understands that, in the Democrat voter base, a “moderate” is someone who really favors all of the radical leftist nostrums that have utterly failed an murdered hundreds of millions of human beings over the last century, but wants to be able to pretend to their non-crazy friends that they’re really just “open-minded.” These people want a candidate who is radical but doesn’t look or sound radical.

That’s what Bill Clinton delivered to them in 1992 and what Barack Obama gave them in 2008: a radical leftist who’s going to nationalize healthcare and destroy the economy with a raft of Soviet-style command-and-control regulations over the “environment” and pretty much every other facet of our lives, but who looks and sounds like just a guy who you’d like to have a drink with at the local bar or, as in Preacher Pete’s case, the harmless Jehovah’s Witness who knocks on your door and wants to talk to you about his vision of what God actually is.

Preacher Pete is delivering all of that, right down to the starched white shirt and black pants uniform and scripture-quoting (and often mis-quoting) of your local missionary. When radical leftism is packaged like this, you hardly notice how radical it all really is until it’s too late and the harmless missionary is implementing a $2500 penalty on you for not signing up with the medical non-coverage mandated by the bill he just signed into law.

This Clintonian triangulation approach of adopting pretty much all of his opponents’ most radical ideas, but doing so with the demeanor and talking points of moderation has suddenly landed Preacher Pete with a 9-point lead in the new Des Moines Register poll in Iowa, and a whopping 10 point lead in a new St. Anselm poll in New Hampshire. Yes, these are just single polls in each state, but every other poll taken recently in these two crucial kickoff contests have shown Buttigieg’s fortunes rapidly rising.

Supporters of Quid Pro Joe point to their guy’s leads in South Carolina and Nevada, the next two states that will be contested before Super Tuesday rolls around, but history is filled with the rotting carcasses of presidential candidates who thought they could lose Iowa and New Hampshire and then build firewalls around later states and still be the nominee. Reality dictates that if any candidate can win both Iowa and New Hampshire, they will immediately become the odds-on favorite to be the nominee as the momentum from those victories carries over into other states.

Just as in the game of football, momentum is a very real factor in presidential politics. Right now, Preacher Pete, through his strategy of channeling the 1992 version of Bill Clinton, definitely has it. Whether or not it can last is anyone’s guess, but he is proving to be a very formidable presence in this race.

That is all.

The Democrat Nomination Race is All Jumbled-up Again

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

One of the biggest ways the ongoing fake impeachment circus benefits the Democrat Party is to take public attention away from the parade of clowns who are seeking the party’s 2020 presidential nomination. Sure, it hasn’t helped Joe Biden, with the revelation of the influence peddling he conducted with his ne’er-do-well son Hunter, but nothing can really help Biden, who most days doesn’t even know what state he’s in. And you get the occasional 4-hour pop-up news cycle when one of the clowns – most recently, Irish Bob O’Rourke – calls an unceremonious end to his or her failed campaigns.

But otherwise, the rest of these grifters, scam artists and just plain nitwits have been able to fly mostly under the public radar since their last disastrous debate in mid-October thanks to all the media obsession over Nancy Pelosi’s and Adam Schiff’s impeachment scam. But, since today is exactly one year out from Election Day 2020, and I’m frankly tired of talking about that particular scam, today is a very good day for Today’s Campaign Update to provide an update on the actual campaign, right? Right.

Lieawatha’s War Path Stalls – The first thing to note about the progression of the campaign over the past several weeks is that the momentum in the race seen by Little Mouth Always Running throughout August and September has now stalled. It was easy for demented Democrat voters and fake journalists to view Fauxcahontas as a younger, fresher version of The Commie while she was safely polling in third place, but once she passed Sanders and started polling first in a poll here and there, everyone had to take a step back in start thinking about what the Party’s prospects would be in 2020 with Princess Gonna Take All Your Money at the top of the ticket.

It turns out that there are actually some Democrats who are capable of semi-rational thought, and that $52 trillion price tag on her “Medicare for All” plan has many in the Party suddenly experiencing reservations about making this particular life-long fraud the Party’s standard-bearer next year. Lieawatha’s little tom-tom boomlet in the polls stagnated in late-September, and she has actually faded slightly throughout October.

The Squad goes full Commie – Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and her “squad” of female freshmen congressional Saul Alinsky disciples chose to endorse the oldest, most pasty-white male in the race, despite their constant bashing of old, white men as the cause for all of society’s ills. That old, pasty-white guy happens to be The Commie who, at age 78, is just a year older than fellow old, pasty-white guy Joe Biden.

The Squad’s endorsement of The Commie came barely a week after the Senator from the People’s Republic of Vermont suffered a heart event, at least according to published media reports. Since literally nothing that our national news media reports can be trusted anymore, who knows if he really had any health issue or not? It’s a crapshoot.

In any event, the endorsement by the Party’s most radical group of leftist nitwits got the Democrats’ Perpetual Outrage Mob really motivated, and The Commie’s poll numbers, which had slowly declined throughout the long, hot summer, have stabilized since.

Preacher Pete is a “rising star” one more time – Preacher Pete Buttigieg, the mayor of some little town in Indiana, was the Party’s favorite media-boosted “rising star” throughout the spring. But like Sanders, he had seen his polling fortunes wane throughout the summer after his media toadies figured out that he has literally zero appeal to Black voters, who make up a huge portion of the Party’s support base.

But Preacher Pete has made a significant comeback in the polls since the October debate, during which he said a few things that the media liars can refer to as “moderate” without spewing coffee all over their keyboards. The 37 year-old radical leftist scold is now being promoted as the “sensible moderate alternative to Joe Biden,” who everyone knows will not be the Democrat nominee next year.

As a result of this new media promotion angle, Preacher Pete is once a gain running solidly in fourth place in the national polls, and a very strong second in Iowa behind Lieawatha now. How long that can last is anyone’s guess, but the best bet is it will last until his current media admirers find some other cute candidate on whom to focus their love interests.

Kamala’s campaign is on life support – The single most illegitimate candidate in the race, who literally slept her way to the U.S. Senate, has just about run out of gas. She has spent the last week firing all of her staff in New Hampshire and other states, and blaming her pathetic performance on sexism, racism and any other -ism she can think of. Call it the Hillary Clinton Strategy.

The truth is that Kamala Harris is a terribly unappealing person, and a horrible campaigner to boot. She has now mysteriously chosen to focus basically all of her remaining campaign assets on Iowa, where she is polling a very consistent 3%, running a very distant 6th place behind even Amy Klobuchar.

Basically, this race has now become a war of attrition, one in which we are seeing candidate after candidate drop out after finally going broke. Next up in that procession will likely be dead-man-walking candidates like Julian Castro of Texas, Colorado Senator Michael Bennet, and Montana Governor Steve Bullock.

Sen. Klobuchar still has some money, so she’ll just keep plugging along in Iowa and few other states in hopes of catching lightning in a bottle at some point. Tulsi Gabbard and Andrew Yang, the field’s two “outliers,” i.e., actual interesting candidates, also have done a solid job of raising and conserving funds and appear to be in it at least until Super Tuesday comes around next March. And the singularly irritating billionaire Tom Steyer has unlimited funds of his own, and obviously enjoys hanging around and irritating people, so he’ll keep campaigning and polling at or near zero for the foreseeable future.

Bottom line: A month ago, this race appeared to be shaping up as Fauxcahontas’s race to lose. But here we sit with a year to go before the general election, and it’s gotten all jumbled up again. With Biden slowly collapsing and the Pantsuit Princess now making increasing noises about getting into the race, the chances of this thing ending up with an open convention process next Summer are once again on the rise.

So much fuss over a process that is just going to end up picking someone to go out and lose to President Donald Trump. But hey, these are Democrats we’re talking about here.

Here are my updated odds for the ultimate outcome of this circus clown parade:

Someone not currently in the race: Even

Elizabeth Warren: 5 to 2

Preacher Pete: 7 to 2

The Commie: 4 to 1

Joe Biden: 10 to 1

Amy Klobuchar: 15 to 1

Kamala Harris: 20 to 1

Tulsi Gabbard: 50 to 1

Andrew Yang: 50 to 1

The rest of the current field: 100 to 1

That is all.

Dem Debate: Clipping Coupons, Stealing Your Money, and Confiscating Guns

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

I didn’t watch last night’s Democrat debate, because I’m sane and would prefer to stay that way. Besides, there was baseball on TV. But I did follow the festivities in real time on social media, and quickly realized I didn’t miss anything that wasn’t entirely predictable.

For example, there was this lovely moment, when the two near-octogenarians in the race, perhaps surprised to see each other still alive and kicking, gave each other a big hug:

Image may contain: 1 person, suit

Awwww, isn’t that cute? It’s like that big family reunion back in 1963 when both of your great-grandpas showed up together for the last time.

Speaking of Quid Pro Joe, he got the very predicable special handling from CNN hack Anderson Cooper, who prefaced a question about his bullying of the Ukraine in order to protect is ne’er-do-well son with “You have been falsely accused by the White House…”, and bumbling ‘Ol Joe was barely able to take it from there. If Cooper could’ve taken him by the hand and walked him through an answer, you can be sure he would have done so.

At other times, though, the Unfrozen Caveman Senator didn’t fare quite so well. Check out this clip, when he’s asked by some chick about the Marxist “wealth tax” scheme being touted by The Commie and Fauxcahontas:

That’s right: He literally said “clipping coupons in the stock market.” He apparently thinks Nabisco often runs “2 for 1 specials” on purchases of its stock, and General Motors offers 5 year, 0 percent financing from time to time.

In case you couldn’t understand the rest of his gibberish answer, here’s everything he said, verbatim:

“No, look, er, ah,um, demonizing wealth people, what I’ve talked about is how you get things done. And the way to get things done is take a look at the tax code right now.  The idea, we have to start rewarding work not just wealth. I would eliminate the capital gains tax [rapid blinking and scrunch face occurs here] that i..I w, I would raise the capital gains tax to the highest l.., rate of 39.5 percent, would double it. Because guess what? Why in God’s name should someone who’s clipping coupons in the stock market make, in fact, pay lower tax rate than someone who in fact is, uh, like I said, is, th, uh,  a school teacher and a fireman.”

Got that? So, all you stock market coupon clippers better put those scissors away and go out and get a job teaching or putting out fires. Because that’s the world Quid Pro Joe lives in these days.

In another highlight, Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard, who remains the only actual interesting person on the Democrat stage, ripped into the two main drivers of today’s fake news media, CNN and the New York Times. Hilariously, those two fake news outlets also happened to be the hosts of last night’s debate. Here’s the clip:

For those who still like to read things, here is the key passage:

“Not only that, but, the New York Times and CNN have also smeared veterans like myself for calling for an end to this regime change war. Just two days ago, the New York Times put out an article saying that I’m a Russian asset and an Assad apologist and all these different smears. This morning, a CNN commentator said on national television that I’m an asset of Russia. Completely despicable.”

Boom. Don’t hear language like that about our fake news media coming from any of the other Democrats on that stage, mainly because the New York Times and CNN treat them all with kid gloves.

But maybe the best part came when Irish Bob O’Rourke appeared to question the political courage of Navy veteran Pete Buttigieg, and that did not go well for the Texas dilettante:

Oof.

In an interview released earlier on Tuesday, O’Rourke also signaled that his pending failure to win the Democrat nomination would likely end his amazingly mediocre political career, saying “I cannot fathom a scenario where I would run for public office again if I’m not the nominee.”

All of his former fantasy lovers at various Texas and national fake media outlets would be heartbroken, but those words fall on most Texans like manna from heaven.

Note to Beto: You aren’t winning anything in this race, given that your campaign has been the most laughable, miserable, epic failure this year has seen. So, please, keep your word, for once.

To sum up the rest: Julian Castro told a bunch of lies about immigration, Fauxcahontas refused again to admit she is going to raise taxes on the middle class, Kamala Harris bumbled and stumbled all over herself, Andrew Yang barely got any airtime, Cory Booker continued sucking up to Creepy Uncle Joe, Tom Steyer was on the stage but nobody knew why, or even who in the hell he was, and everyone went after Fauxcahontas at one time or another because she’s the real frontrunner in the race.

But in the most important news of the evening, the Nationals beat the Cardinals to sweep to their first-ever National League pennant.

That is all.

P.S.: As I was typing this piece up this morning, President Donald Trump summed last night’s festivities up perfectly:

The Democrat Debate is a Week Away, But the Fun has Already Begun

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

The last-gasp pre-debate stunts have officially begun. Expect more to come.  – Democrat presidential candidate Julian Castro, whose failing campaign is drawing its final breaths, tried to pull an attention-grabbing stunt at the Texas/Mexico border city of Brownsville on Monday. There, he personally escorted 13 illegal aliens to the U.S. Border Patrol station and demanded they be released into the U.S.

Castro claimed – most likely falsely – that the 13 “migrants” were LGBTQ folks, and thus, under Democrat identity politics rationale, somehow entitled to special treatment under U.S. law. The Border Patrol took the grandstanding Castro’s demands under advisement, jotted down the illegal aliens’ names, and promptly returned them back across the Rio Grande to have their asylum claims – also most likely false – adjudicated in compliance with U.S. and international law.

Castro then of course ranted for the conveniently-present television cameras, which was the point of the entire exercise. The next debate is October 15, and Castro is out of money, so pulling stunts like this, in which he actively violates immigration laws himself, is his only means of getting media attention. It’s truly pathetic, but then, so is Castro.

Hey, Joe, look at me! – signed, Cory B. – Another guy whose campaign is out of money and desperate for attention is New Jersey Senator Cory Booker, who pulled a stunt of his own on Monday. Unlike Castro, however, Booker’s desperate grab for media attention was aimed not at attracting support for his flagging presidential hopes, but at attracting Quid Pro Joe’s attention in hopes of becoming his running mate in 2020.

In an interview on ever-friendly CNN, Booker said this about Creepy Uncle Joe’s problems related to his bullying Ukraine to leave his ne’er-do-well son free to pursue his pay-for-play enrichment exercise in 1996:

“I’ve said time and time again that this is unacceptable, that if you come after Joe Biden, you’re going to have to deal with me in this case. There is no — as you said — these are baseless, unfounded, scurrilous lies, plain and simple, trying to undermine the character of one of the statesmen of our country, not our party, but our country. And so, yeah, you’ve got a problem with me,” Booker told CNN’s Ana Cabrera on “Newsroom.”

Of course, Booker’s new campaign for VEEP would probably be better directed towards Fauxcahontas, since she is for all intents and purposes now the front-runner for the 2020 nomination, as Biden’s polling numbers continue to decline. But hey, you can’t blame a guy for trying to cover all his bets, can you?

Meanwhile, Fauxcahontas attracted attention of her own on Monday, albeit attention of the inconvenient sort, as yet another false claim about her personal history came to light. Little Mouth Always Running has spent the last decade frequently claiming to have been fired from a 1971 teaching job in New Jersey because she was pregnant.  But, as with seemingly every other aspect of her personal life’s narrative, that complaint turns out to be completely false.

As the Washington Examiner revealed, the local board of education in Riverdale, New Jersey not only did not dismiss the young and pregnant Lieawatha, it in fact unanimously approved a new contract for her. What really happened is that, a couple of months later, Princess Gonna Take Your Wampum tendered her resignation.

Here is what Fauxcahontas, in a rare moment of apparent honesty, told an interviewer about it all back in 2007:

“I went back to graduate school and took a couple of courses in education and said, ‘I don’t think this is going to work out for me,’” Warren said in the 2007 interview. “I was pregnant with my first baby, so I had a baby and stayed home for a couple of years, and I was really casting about, thinking, ‘What am I going to do?’ My husband’s view of it was, ‘Stay home. We have children, we’ll have more children, you’ll love this.’ And I was very restless about it.”

Oh.

Now, this latest in a long string of outright fictions about her personal life story will of course be considered as a badge of honor by the deranged Democrat Party voter base. As the Campaign Update has repeatedly pointed out, when it comes to picking presidential candidates, Democrat voters love a good life-long fraud, and there is no more transparent life-long fraud in this race than Lieawatha. So, we can expect the Senator from Massachusetts to get a 2-3 point bump in the polls from this story.

Don’t blame me for any of this, folks, I’m just the messenger. These are Democrats we’re talking about here, and this is just who they are and what they do.

That is all.

Bernie is Toast, Biden is Close

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

Bernie Sanders’ presidential hopes are over, although he may not realize it yet. – The Commie had to undergo surgery to implant multiple stents into his 78 year-old heart, and has cancelled a bunch of planned campaign events over the next couple of weeks so he can recover. Although this can be a fairly minor procedure for a younger person – I had one placed into my left ventricular artery at age 55 and was back to full speed within a few weeks – it can be far more difficult for a person of Sanders’ advanced age.

But the speed of his recovery doesn’t even matter here: Sanders was already finding it impossible to move his polling numbers much above 15% due in part to the impression among many Democrats that he is just too old for the job he seeks. Suffering a heart attack in the midst of the campaign – and yes, if he was having chest pains, any doctor will tell you that he did indeed suffer a heart attack – will only serve to build that perception among many more voters, who will now begin to cast their eyes in the direction of the other, younger unquestioned Marxist in the race, Fauxcahontas.

The near-certain outcome will be that we will see Sanders’ polling numbers drop into single digits over the next few weeks, and a commensurate rise in support for Little Mouth Always Running.

Speaking of the Fake Indian running, check out the greeting she received from Nevada voters when her plane landed out there on Wednesday:

Not exactly the reception that Princess I’m Gonna Take Your Wampum expected. But that’s the price we can expect more and more Democrats to pay for their support for San Fran Nan’s sham impeachment circus as Trump supporters become increasingly engaged in public activism and protest.

Meanwhile, the campaign of Quid Pro Joe Biden, the nation’s Unfrozen Caveman Senator, is now hanging by a thread. While Biden’s foundering campaign did not quite meet my prediction that his lead would have disappeared by October 1, he sure came close.

In fact, Lieawatha actually now holds the lead in 4 of the 7 most recent polls taken in the race, according to Real Clear Politics, and she and Biden are in a statistical tie in a fifth poll taken by Emerson. In fact, only one of those polls was even partially conducted in October, and that one – by The Economist/YouGov – shows the Fake Indian holding a 6 point lead. The two clear outlier polls, both showing Biden with 11 point leads, were taken entirely in September.

Given that reality, I think I’ll declare half a victory on this particular prediction, made back in April when Crazy Uncle Joe kicked off his campaign with a near-30 point lead. There is now little doubt that his lead will disappear entirely when the first polls conducted entirely in October are published over the next two weeks.

For the  rest of the field, just a few trends to note:

  • Kamala Harris is on life support. She announced early this week that she is shaking up her staff, but that won’t help. The candidate is the problem with her campaign. She is just a horrible candidate, and shuffling the deck chairs on the Titanic won’t change that.
  • Preacher Pete is your basic 6% candidate now, and his trendline has been essentially static since June. His consistent ZERO support from African American voters means he has no real chance in the race for the nomination, and that won’t change. The only reason for him to hang around is in the hopes of becoming arm candy for Fauxcahontas in the general election.
  • Andrew Yang had a $10 million fundraising haul in the third quarter, which places him in the top 4 in this pitiful field. He had one exciting moment when he came in at 8% in the Emerson poll last week, but that’s a clear statistical anomaly given that he is at 2 or 3 in every other poll. Another potential vice presidential nominee, but no chance to win the big prize.
  • Cory Booker, Julian Castro, Irish Bob O’Rourke and Amy Klobuchar are all dead as door nails, but they will linger through the next debate in mid-October in the vain hopes of having some breakthrough moment on that crowded stage.
  • The only other declared candidate worth mentioning is Tulsi Gabbard, who had a chance to be the only actual interesting person on stage when she initially came out in opposition to Pelosi’s Impeachment Circus. But she lost that not even 48 hours later when she reversed her posture. Thus, she’ll be just another hack with no chance of truly distinguishing herself in that next debate.

Then there’s the Pantsuit Princess, the thus-far-undeclared candidate in this race. The Fainting Felon has raised eyebrows by putting herself back in the public spotlight with a series of speaking events this week, raising the spectre that she might decide to become a late entrant into the campaign season as Biden falters.

From a pure self-defense standpoint, that appeared to make some sense late last week, as the corrupt news media assisted Biden by claiming the President’s rhetoric about Biden’s clear pay-for-play selling of his vice presidential office related to Ukraine, China and other countries amounted to a Trump attack on a political rival rather than an effort to identify clear corruption. But that particular line of BS has very quickly lost its utility as this week has progressed and the damning video of Biden bragging about engaging in his clear bullying of the Ukraine government on behalf of his ne’er-do-well son gained traction with the public.

Would the Grasping Grifter attempt a similar tactic, declaring herself to be a candidate to try to give herself political cover against the increasingly aggressive investigation led by Attorney General William Barr? She might, but she would fail even more miserably than Biden is failing with that line of BS.

Only time will tell. I still think her plan is to wait it out and hope to become the party’s savior at a hung convention.

Given all of that, here are my updated odds on who the eventual Democrat nominee will be:

Fauxcahontas – 3 to 1

Someone not currently declared – 3 to 2

Quid Pro Joe – 20 to 1

The Commie – 50 to 1

Preacher Pete – 100 to 1

Kamala – 100 to 1

Andrew Yang – 100 to 1

The rest of the declared field – DEAD

That is all.

The Biden Lead is Crashing Like the 1929 Stock Market

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

The Biden lead is crashing like the 1929 stock market. – Today’s Campaign Update has been predicting since April – when he formally entered the race – that Joe Biden’s polling lead would be gone by October and that he would leave the race for the presidency shortly after March 4, 2020, which is Super Tuesday.

As things turn out, the nation’s Unfrozen Caveman Senator is right on pace to achieve the first piece of that two-pronged prediction. The three most current new polls out this week all now show him in a statistical tie with Fauxcahontas, the life-long fraud who is now the candidate with all the momentum in the race. The polls all come from legitimate polling groups – Economist/YouGov, Emerson and Quinnipiac – which are independent from major U.S. fake media outlets. That’s an important distinction, since those major fake news outlets produce their “polls” as a means to create fake news instead of any real effort to measure the state of the race.

Biden’s once-strong leads in Iowa and New Hampshire, the first two contests in the race, have already disappeared into the ether, although he does still cling to leads in the most current polls in South Carolina and Nevada, the two contests that come after New Hampshire. Faced with this reality, the Biden campaign has now taken to saying that it is not important for their confused candidate to win Iowa or New Hampshire, which smart observers will note is exactly what the campaign of Rudy Giuliani kept saying back in 2008. How did that work out for the Mayor?

The big outlier in the national polls is The Hill/HarrisX poll. HarrisX is a legitimate polling group, and its poll, taken on September 20/21, came out before the controversy about Biden’s interference in the Ukraine on behalf of his ne’er-do-well son Hunter, broke into the news cycle. That one still had Biden’s support up over 30%, and Fauxcahontas way down at 14%, trailing even The Commie.

That is a real outlier compared to these three more-recent polls, and it will be interesting to see where it comes out in its next iteration. That may not happen until after October 1, since it has been on a two-week cycle.

Lots of other interesting stuff in these three most-recent polls, including:

Bernie Sanders is basically dead in the water at this point. He is stuck in the mid-teens, mainly because he has no new ideas that aren’t recycled from his 2016 effort. He just keeps on repeating the same tired Marxist talking points over and over again, and that just bores the short-attention-span Democrat voter base back to playing games on their IPads. Fauxcahontas has become the more interesting and energetic Marxist of the day.

Irish Bob O’Rourke has now fallen behind Andrew Yang. His strategy of attracting support by being the loudest, shrillest and most profane finger-pointer in the crowd has failed just as everything else he has ever tried in his life. He gone, he just don’t know it yet.

The same can and should be said of Cory Booker. He polls at dead zero in two of those three polls. His campaign recently let it be known that it is almost out of money and that he would probably have to leave the race soon if fundraising doesn’t pick up. There is no reason whatsoever why fundraising for the goofy Senator should pick up.

–  Like The Commie, Kamala Harris is also dead in the water. Her support numbers, which had been stuck in the 6-8% range throughout July and August, are now stuck in the 3-4% range. Like Booker, it is hard to see any reason why they  might suddenly pick up. As bad as she has been as a senator, she is even worse – absolutely horrible – as a candidate. For you college football fans, Harris is the Jim Harbaugh of the political world – blessed with more hype than Barack Obama, but unable to meet expectations on the field of play.

Then there’s Mayor Pete, or Preacher Pete as The Campaign Update prefers to call him. The little Deacon has one of the most loyal bases of support of any candidate in this race. The trouble is, that base of support has settled in right at 6%, and no one should expect him to move substantially above or below that level. He is the 6% candidate, waiting to become VEEP arm candy for Fauxcahontas in next year’s general election.

The only other thing worth noting here is that Tulsi Gabbard has now qualified under the DNC’s very mysterious rules for the October debate. Thus, there will be one actually interesting person on stage with 11 circus clowns for that one. Given Democrat voter preference for circus clowns, that will likely be Tulsi’s last stand.

All that having been said, the odds are now getting a little better for one of these candidates, most likely Fauxcahontas, to accumulate the necessary majority of delegates during the primary races to win on a first ballot at next year’s nominating convention. Biden’s rapid fall, combined with the inability of candidates like Harris, Booker, Preacher Pete or Irish Bob to gain any real traction, make it more likely that only 2 or 3 of those who survive into 2020 will be able to get to the 15% threshhold in each state to be awarded delegates.

This is now Fauxcahontas’s race to lose, which should come as no surprise to readers of The Campaign Update. We have consistently told you that Democrat voters love a good liar, and will pretty much always nominate the single biggest life-long fraud in the field. That has been the case in every nominating battle since 1992, and there was never any reason to think this one would turn out any differently.

Given that, here are my new odds for the ultimate winner of this race:

Fauxcahontas – Even money

Someone not in the current field – 2 to 1

Biden – 5 to 1

The Commie – 20 to 1

Preacher Pete – 50 to 1

Kamala – 50 to 1

The Field – 100  to 1

That is all.
