These Democrat Riots Will End America’s Downtown Renaissance

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

The inevitable outcomes of this past week of rioting in the major, Democrat-controlled cities are very predictable. The abject refusal by Democrat mayors and governors to make any effort whatsoever to protect the citizens and small businesses from the excesses of Antifa- and BLM-led burning and pillaging will have consequences for those cities for decades to come.

The first two decades of the 21st century have seen a revival of the central cities in America, as the Baby Boomer flight to the suburbs has given way to a move back to downtown and mid-town areas by Gen-X, Gen-Y and Millennials wanting to avoid being trapped into a life of long commutes they watched their parents endure. Life in high-rise and mid-rise condominiums within walking distance of office and shopping centers has become the new norm for these younger generations of Americans, and hundreds of thousands of small businesses have sprung up on the ground floors of those condo buildings to serve them.

When I first lived in Houston in 1980, no one lived in the downtown area, and the thriving area called “mid-town” was a slum. You didn’t want to linger downtown past dark because it was too dangerous to be caught there. Most other large cities in America were in similar shape after all of the “white flight” to the suburbs that had taken place since the 1960s.

That all began to change in the mid-1990s, after mayors like Rudy Giuliani had taken charge of the security situations in those downtown areas and city governments and business leaders invested billions in urban renewal projects designed to make those areas attractive places to live. College graduates of all races, colors and creeds, having grown up watching their parents spend 2 to 3 hours a day in stop and go traffic saw the advantages of living a few blocks from work and seized the opportunities to do so.

From Seattle to Portland to San Diego to Phoenix to Denver to Dallas to Houston to Miami to Boston, and many points in between, downtown/mid-town neighborhoods that were basically hellholes 40 years ago were turned into great cultural melting pots of our society. It was a stunning success story of 21st century America. But then came Barack Obama and Eric Holder and Loretta Lynch and the policies of hands-off policing, policies that order the police to stand down and watch helplessly during riots as the bad actors vent their rage at the expense of residents and small businesses.

The last week is simply the inevitable result of those “progressive” policies.

Thousands of young-ish New Yorkers who moved to Soho because it was a cool place to be woke up Monday morning horrified by the reality that Bill de Blasio had allowed the neighborhood they had believed to be safe and secure to be looted and burned during the night. Thousands more New Yorkers are waking up to similar realities in other Manhattan and Brooklyn neighborhoods this morning. Residents and business owners in downtown and mid-town areas of Minneapolis and Chicago and Philadelphia have seen their lives and livelihoods destroyed by city leaders who couldn’t be bothered to do anything to stop all the mayhem. The vast majority of these people are loyal Democrats who thought the leaders they have repeatedly elected would protect them.

Silly them.

The worst thing about it is that that mayhem – the looting, the burning, the shattering of doors and windows – was largely committed by their neighbors, egged on by BLM and Antifa organizers from out of state.

If you are a young mother or father who has just seen half of the buildings surrounding your home vandalized, burned and looted by people who live just blocks away, how will you ever feel secure in that home again? If you are a small business owner who has just had your storefront windows shattered and your store looted while your city’s Democrat leaders sat safe in their mansions and did nothing, what will be your incentive for reopening? You may do it for awhile, try to get back on your feet while putting bars on your doors and windows, but how long can you last as you watch half of your customers flee back to the suburbs where they were raised by their commuting parents?

The Democrat mayors and inner-city councilmen won’t care, because the captive population left behind will only lean more strongly in their favor. Their lives of grifting in positions of political power will have been secured.

For the people left behind, life will become grim. Sadly, most of them will have no understanding of the fact that the re-created downtown/mid-town hellholes to come are the result of their own actions and voting habits.

Life’s a cycle, and when you just keep mindlessly voting for Democrats, you get what you ask for, whether you realize it or not.

That is all.

Texas Dems’ Backup Plan for Challenging John Cornyn is Hilarious

The Afternoon Campaign Update
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Say it ain’t so, Mikey! – Y’all, Mike Bloomberg is not running for president. Counseling sessions for all 12 of you devastated fans will begin at 10:00 tomorrow.

One of the most entertaining aspects of this Democrat race for the loser’s ring thus far has been watching how our fake news media considers it to be big “news” when a billionaire like Bloomberg or Tom Steyer makes his inevitable announcement that he’s not really going run, not at all.

Why is this news? This is the fourth time we’ve been through this breathless ‘Is he in? Is he out?’ nonsense with the former New York City Mayor. He’s played the same game in every election cycle since 2008. That he was going to end up not running was pretty much a certainty. The only semi-mystery was how he would communicate the “news.” This time, he made his announcement by publishing an “op/ed” in …wait for it….BLOOMBERG, the media outlet that carries his name because he owns it.

In what all the social justice warriors would no doubt call an op/ed of white privilege, he said this, in part:

“Should I devote the next two years to talking about my ideas and record, knowing that I might never win the Democratic nomination? Or should I spend the next two years doubling down on the work that I am already leading and funding and that I know can produce real and beneficial results for the country, right now? I’ve come to realize that I’m less interested in talking than doing.”

Translated into plain English, he knew he couldn’t win, so he decided to just go and blow half a billion of his personal fortune supporting other socialist candidates who call themselves Democrats.

That’s all fine, but can we please quit pretending it’s “news”? Because it isn’t. Not at all.

A bit of real, actual news is that former Attorney General Eric Holder also announced on Tuesday that he not running in 2020. That is actual news because, unlike with Bloomberg, there was valid reason to believe Holder would make a run, given that he has spent the last two years making speeches in key primary states like New Hampshire and Iowa, and seemingly making other preparations necessary to mount a real campaign.

The utterly-corrupt Holder, who, as Attorney General illegally ran guns to Mexican drug cartels and otherwise proudly served as Barack Obama’s “wingman,” made his announcement late Monday night on Stephen Colbert’s show where he knew he wouldn’t be asked any tough questions. Because being curiosity-free zones for Democrat politicians is what all the late night talk shows have become over the last two years.

Here is how bankrupt for talent the Texas Democrat Party truly is. – They’re thinking about putting Wendy Davis up against incumbent Republican Senator John Cornyn when he runs for re-election in 2020.

Yes, that Wendy Davis, the Wendy Davis who was, with the help and funding of a bunch of Obama minions, going to “turn Texas blue” back in 2014 in her race against Greg Abbott for the state’s governorship. She was such an unmitigated disaster in that campaign that she ended up pulling just 39% of the vote, crushed by a 20% margin. Even poor, under-funded Lupe Valdez, who the Texas Democrat Party basically abandoned amid their attack of Beto fever last year, made a much better showing than Ms. Davis did, ultimately cutting Abbott’s winning margin to just 12%.

Nevertheless, should San Antonio Congressman Joaquin Castro ultimately decide not to challenge Cornyn, Wendy, not Lupe, is the Democrats’ backup plan.

My goodness.  You seriously cannot make this stuff up.

Determining an order of succession became necessary last week when media darling Irish Bob O’Rourke finally made up his very strange mind to pass on challenging Cornyn for his seat. That made perfect sense. When you think it through, the ultra-leftist Beto has a far better chance of becoming the Democrat presidential nominee than he does of winning a statewide race in Texas, where no Democrat has prevailed in such a race for a full quarter-century now.

Those who disagree with that assertion by pointing to O’Rourke’s close, 3-point loss to Ted Cruz are missing the boat here. Cruz is as controversial in Texas as he is in Washington, and there are plenty of Texas Republicans who simply won’t vote for him under any circumstances.  That, combined with Irish Bob’s $50 million spending advantage in the race, is why that race was far more competitive than any other Texas statewide contest.

No Democrat is going to have that advantage vs. Cornyn, and Big John is about a controversial in Texas as the average Rio Grande Valley cantaloupe. Despite Texas’s shifting demographics, the race against Cornyn is a double-digit deal from start to finish, and Castro would be well-advised to skip it himself and hold onto that seat in congress until he can run against Cruz when he’s up again in 2024. By then, demographics will have presumably shifted even further, Beto fever will have run its course, and Castro will be the party’s best option in a race against Cruz.

Should Castro make the smart decision here, that would leave the Democrats in the lurch in the big race on the Texas ballot in 2020. If Wendy Davis is really the party’s backup plan, they are well and truly screwed.

That is all.

Eric Holder Demonstrates Why Decent People Don’t Vote Democrat

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Gosh, wonder why we’ve never heard this on CNN?:  Kentucky Senator Rand Paul, who was one of the Republicans who was almost murdered when a lunatic Bernie Sanders disciple shot up a congressional GOP softball practice in 2017, told an interviewer yesterday that the shooter was screaming “this is for healthcare!” as he tried to kill everyone.  Strange how we’ve never seen that part of the story reported by any mainstream television network or in the pages of our nation’s newspapers.  So odd.  Must just be an oversight.

You’re gonna need some bigger boots, Eric. – Former fake attorney general Eric Holder, speaking to an audience of supporters of Democrat Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams, jumped on the Democrat civil war-promoting wagon train yesterday.  Taking issue with former first lady Michelle Obama’s famous admonition that “when they go low, we go high,” Holder advised his audience that they need to be meaner and tougher, saying “when they go low, we kick them.”

Holder went on to tell his whooping and hollering audience that “That’s what this new Democratic Party is about. We’re proud as hell to be Democrats.  We’re going to fight for the ideals of the Democratic Party.”

So, to be clear, this “new Democrat Party” is about Antifa terrorists attacking senior citizens on the streets of Portland, wailing social justice warriors clawing at the doors of the Supreme Court building, hiring a lineup of women to participate in an organized smear of a judicial nominee, mobs assaulting Republicans in restaurants and other public places, and on and on.  That’s the “new Democrat Party” Eric Holder is promoting.

Holder, of course, is just trying to keep pace with the Pantsuit Princess, who jumped onto the wagon train on Tuesday, and just joins a constantly-expanding list of Democrat “leaders” like Maxine Waters who are doing everything they can to foment public violence.  None of these “leaders” talk about what they expect the ultimate outcome of their promotion of violence to be, but any thinking person can see that, once a major political party takes this genie out of the bottle, it becomes increasingly hard to put it back in.

So long as no Democrat officeholder in a prominent position is willing to forcefully and unambiguously condemn this promotion of violence, the violence is going to escalate. Don’t kid yourself – they are all fully aware of this fact. Ultimately, as Senator Paul said yesterday, someone is going to get killed by these people. When that happens, all bets are off.

Our other problem is that law enforcement in our major cities – almost all of which are not coincidentally run by Democrats – is not doing its job to contain things.  Antifa mobs have basically been allowed to assault people with impunity as the police stand by and watch in places like Portland, Seattle, Berkeley and Washington, DC.  Even the Capitol Police have become complicit.  At last week’s occupation by a mob of protesters at the Hart Senate Office Building, a couple of them were filmed walking up to Amy Schumer and some famous sexpot model, asking them politely if they would like to be arrested for the cameras, and then gently making them go sit in a corner for an hour or so.

Folks, it is a violation of federal law for that mob to take over a government building like that.  Everyone there should have been handcuffed, loaded into vans and taken to local jails to be booked.  The way they were treated with kid gloves only serves to embolden the behavior.

I sarcastically commented that that made me long for the days of tear gas and rubber bullets.  But if law enforcement doesn’t start treating this stuff more seriously, that’s where we are headed.

And here’s the thing that the Democrat “leaders” encouraging this stuff don’t seem to be considering:  at the end of the day, if you antagonize us “normals” out here in flyover country too much, and start killing people, we’re by and large the ones with all the safes filled with guns and ammo.

The reality is that Antifa is mainly made up of a bunch of soft, white Millennial nerds from upper-middle class families who spend most of their time playing video games in the basement of their grandmother’s home, where they still live.  When they finally start killing people, which is inevitable as long as the Soros money keeps pouring in and the Democrat Party keeps helping organize them, they are going to be pretty much defenseless against the harsh retribution that will come their way unless the police start doing their jobs.

Democrats like Holder and Clinton and Waters and Obama and Tom Perez and Keith Ellison and Cory Booker and the many, many others who are stoking these fires are playing at a very, very dangerous game.  By urging already irrational people to commit increasingly violent and irrational acts, they are fanning the flames for an ultimate conflict that cannot and will not turn out well for their side.

This behavior is shameful and despicable, and it is why no decent person can even think about voting for any Democrat in this coming election.

We Are Just at the Tip of the Deep State Iceberg

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Tired of all this Winning yet? – The deep state Obama flunkies were in full-on panic on Monday, as the details of their conspiracy to fix the 2016 election and then bring down a duly-elected POTUS continue to come to light.  Obama CIA Director John Brennan, ex-Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates and ex-Attorney General Eric Holder all took to their Twitter accounts or favored media support outlets to threaten various Republicans and say stuff that just isn’t true.

Fresh off of probably perjuring himself again before another congressional committee on Friday, Brennan decided to go after Speaker Paul Ryan and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell:

Ms. Yates, who famously went after then-National Security Advisor Mike Flynn under false pretenses under the never-used Logan Act, and refused to enforce lawful executive orders during her single week as acting AG, told the nitwits on MSNBC’s Morning Joe this:

“I think what we’re seeing here is the president has taken his all-out assault of the rule of law to a new level and this time he is ordering up an investigation of the investigators who are examining his own campaign. You know, that’s really shocking.”

In addition to the above, Ms. Yates, while serving as Deputy AG, was also responsible for preventing Inspector General Michael Horowitz from exercising proper oversight over the DOJ National Security Division, a fact about which Mr. Horowitz complained before multiple congressional committees.  She’s one to talk, huh?

Not to be outdone, Yates’s former Fast ‘n Furious boss Eric Holder – who was such a shameless toady for Obama that he referred to himself as “The President’s Wingman” – lied to his Twitter followers with this:

“No basis for an inquiry.”  The man is as incurious as a fake reporter for the New York Times.

What we see here is full-on panic from those who were intimately involved in a seditious plot to basically destroy America’s democratic process during a presidential campaign.  And trust me, we are far from knowing the full extent of this plot even with all the recent revelations.

The above tweet was not the only one Brennan sent out in recent days.  He preceded that one on Sunday with a message quoting the famous Roman Marcus Tullius Cicero:

Cicero, of course, ended up being assassinated, making this a classic dog-whistling tweet if there ever was one.

But on seeing Brennan’s tweet, I remembered that Cicero was also a loquacious guy who is credited for many famous quotes about civic life in a democracy.  It took me about 30 seconds of research to come across one that is especially applicable to Brennan, Yates, Holder, Comey, Strzok, Page, Baker, Ohr, McCabe and the others who were involved in this plot:

“A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to fear.”

You want to do some more Cicero quoting, big boy, bring ’em on.

Hey, remember that Stefan Halper guy?  You know, the CIA asset who was hired by the FBI to spy on the Trump Campaign back in July 2016?  Yeah, that guy.

Turns out he got a big, fat check  – $282,295 – from the Obama Administration just a few weeks before Election Day 2016.  Gosh, wonder what that was for?  But that’s not all – turns out this guy was paid over a million dollars by the Obama Administration between 2012-2016.  My goodness, spying for the CIA is good work if you can get it.

And speaking of Halper and the deep state creeps who ran him against the Trump Campaign, if you’re wondering why the FBI and CIA were so anxious to “out” him with strategic leaks to the New York Times and Washington Post last week, well, it could all be a distraction tactic.  This may be a case of the deep state saying hey, look at this shiny object over here so that you don’t look at the big dung heap sitting over in the other corner of your living room.

Former Trump campaign advisor Michael Caputo thinks that’s the case.  He told Laura Ingraham on Fox News last night that Halper was just one of several spies targeted against the Trump Campaign by multiple agencies of the Obama government during the 2016 campaign.  He says he knows this because one of those other spies specifically targeted him.  Caputo claims he’s just awaiting clearance from his legal counsel before making this other spy’s name public.

Hey, somebody go make some more popcorn.

Just another day in some we’re only at the tip of the deep state iceberg America.

The Nunes “Threat” on Sessions: Not What it Seems to be?

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

The NRA held its annual convention in Dallas over the weekend and President Trump was a featured speaker.  But that wasn’t the big news.  The big news came when failed actress and failing anti-gun activist Alyssa Milano showed up to stage a protest in a park across the street from the convention center, complete with a small army of body guards who were – you guessed it – clearly carrying firearms.  Seriously, if liberals didn’t exist, you could not make them up.

Two headlines on the Drudge Report this morning caught my eye:

  • “With no letup in home prices, California exodus surges;” and
  • “California to require solar panels on new homes.”

Cause, meet effect.

“Here’s our new poll showing President Trump’s popularity rising dramatically.  We apologize for the findings of our new poll and will try to do better faking our data in the future.” –  The new Reuters/Ipsos poll is out, and it shows a dramatic rise in the public’s job approval for the President, to 48 percent.  Hilariously, the leftwing lunatics who conduct this poll included the following disclaimer along with the poll results:

“This week’s Reuters/Ipsos Core Political release presents something of an outlier of our trend. Every series of polls has the occasional outlier and in our opinion this is one. So, while we are reporting the findings in the interest of transparency, we will not be announcing the start of a new trend until we have more data to validate this pattern.”

So, if you were entertaining the thought that the people who run the Reuters/Ipsos poll did so in a sincere search for accurate findings, you can now put that thought out of your mind.  No need to thank me for this public service announcement.

You have a point, but why have you waited until now? – House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes told an interviewer on Fox News yesterday that he is planning to move to hold Attorney General Jeff Sessions in contempt of congress this week.  The issue at hand is the Justice Department’s and FBI’s ongoing refusal to comply with his committee’s information requests in a timely manner.

It’s a valid point, and House Majority Whip Steve Scalise, who is one of the candidates to succeed Paul Ryan as Speaker of the House, expressed his agreement in a later interview on the same network.  My only question, though, is why has Nunes waited until now to threaten such action?  It’s not as if this stonewalling on the part of DOJ and the FBI is something new – it’s been going on since last summer.

One of the big problems Nunes and the rest of the Republicans in congress have in such situations is that they are viewed by those in the executive branch as paper tigers, people who make a lot of noise for the television cameras but who, when push comes to shove, can always be counted upon to back off at the first sign of negative media coverage of their actions.

Obama Attorney General Eric Holder no doubt laughed his butt off when he saw Nunes’ threat.  After all, Holder was held in contempt of congress way back during Obama’s first term in office, and what difference did that ultimately make to anything?  None, because the Republicans running congress then were not willing to take the next step and send the Capital police over to DOJ and take Holder into custody.  So Holder was able to just continue on his merry way.

But here’s the thing about the Nunes threat on Sessions:  It may not be what it appears to be.  Think about it for a minute:  First of all, why target Sessions and not the person who is the real problem, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein?  Sessions is recused from the whole Russia Collusion fantasy play – it’s Rosenstein who has been leading DOJ’s obstruction efforts with the various congressional investigations.

Second, again, why now?  Why take this action just when we are reportedly about to finally see the report from DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz made public?  I fully understand Nunes’ frustration, if that’s what it really is, but making this particular threat at this particular time against this particular target doesn’t really seem to make much strategic sense in the context of all these other events swirling around.

Here’s a thought:  Maybe Nunes is taking this action in order to help cement Sessions’ – and by extension, Horowitz’s – independence in the public’s mind in the weeks leading up to the release of the Horowitz report.  Nunes, after all, has been widely (and unfairly) portrayed as a shill for the Trump White House, so what better way to emphasize Sessions’ independence from all of that by going after him personally with a contempt of congress citation?

Why, I wouldn’t be surprised if we also see a nasty Trump tweet, or two, or three, targeting Mr. Sessions in the coming days.  Think about it – things are not always as they seem.

Just another day in you couldn’t make this stuff up if you wanted to America.

That is all.

Princess Pantsuit Clarifies Why She Is Above Our Country’s Laws

Today’s Campaign Update

  • Pigs and People flying together – MASS HYSTERIA! – The UK Sun carries a report today about a woman who was kicked off a U. S. Airways flight on Wednesday when her “support” animal began to act up after she had boarded the plane.  No, it wasn’t a support dog, or a support cat;  the animal is in fact a “support” PIG.
  • Note to airlines:  When you have started allowing lunatics to bring pigs onto your airplanes claiming they are “support” animals, you are the problem, not the lunatics.  Stop being the problem, and start being part of the solution, which is DON’T LET PEOPLE ON YOUR PLANES WITH FREAKING PIGS.  Thank you.
  • In case you missed it amid all the other craziness being foisted on our society by our poisonous fake news media, California’s nut Governor Jerry Brown inadvertently spilled the beans about the whole “Climate Change” religion at the climate conference hosted last week by the Vatican.  Participating in a panel discussion along with several of the other Cardinals of the Church of Climate Change, Gov. Brown stated “At the highest circles, people still don’t get it,” Brown said. “It’s not just a light rinse” that’s required. “We need a total, I might say, ‘brainwashing.’  We need to wash our brains out and see a very different kind of world.”
  • Note to Jerry Brown:  Nazism requires brainwashing.  Communism requires brainwashing.  If your ‘science’ requires brainwashing to be believed by the people, it probably isn’t much of a scientific endeavor at all.
  • I wrote on Wednesday about the fake news media ramping up its efforts to protect Hillary Clinton from being held accountable for all of her crimes against our country, and like clockwork, once the media had laid the groundwork for the argument that any investigation into her crimes conducted by the Justice Department would be an abuse of power, here came the Coughing Crook herself, reciting the exact same talking points in a softball interview with a fake reporter from Mother Jones.
  • “This is such an abuse of power,” the Prevaricating Petunia said in response to a question about AG Jeff Sessions revelation that he is considering the appointment of a special counsel to perform a real investigation over her myriad scandals, “I regret deeply that this appears to be the politicization of the Justice Department and our justice system.”  Now, that is awesome right there, folks.  This is a woman who served in the Obama Administration along with Attorney General Eric Holder.  To accuse anyone else of “politicizing” the Justice Department displays a special kind of shameless.  But hey, this is a Clinton we’re talking about here, so…
  • But it gets better:  “I’m not concerned, because I know that there is no basis to it,” she said. “I regret if they do it because it will be such a disastrous step to politicizing the justice system. And at the end of the day, nothing will come of it, but it will, you know, cause a lot of terrible consequences that we might live with for a really long time.”
  • Wait, by terrible consequences, do you mean like the terrible consequences that might accrue to our country when a Secretary of State facilitates the trading of 20% of our country’s uranium resources in exchange for $145 million in contributions to her fake foundation?  Or do you mean like the terrible consequences that might accrue to our country from the release of national security secrets by a Secretary of State who is using a private email system in order to cover the tracks left by all the unethical and illegal activity she is engaged in?  Or do you mean like the terrible consequences that might have accrued to our country from a presidential campaign and the DNC spending $12 million colluding with Russian agents to compile a fake dossier slandering her opponent?  Those kinds of terrible consequences?
  • Sadly, we’ll never know the answers to those questions since the fake Mother Jones reporter had no intention of straying from his script and posing any inquiries that might make the Fainting Felon uncomfortable.  But then again, we already really do know, don’t we?

Just another day in fake news media covering for the Clintons America.

The Great Unwinding Of The Russia Collusion Fantasy Has Begun

Today’s Campaign Update 

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

  • Well, now we know, without any lingering doubts at all, why the Democrat Party and their facilitators in the national news media responded so viciously and, frankly, insanely to last November’s election results.  I mean, we basically knew that The Most Corrupt Woman in America was engaging in all sorts of shady stuff during the campaign – that’s just her nature.  She’s utterly corrupt, pathologically dishonest, and felt completely entitled to become the 45th president of the United States after being jilted at the altar by Democrat voters in 2008.  She totally would rather lie and cheat than win an election the old-fashioned way, which totally explains why she’d spend millions of dollars having a fake dossier made up on her opponent than bend so low as to actually go to Podunksville, Wisconsin to campaign.
  • So we knew in our hearts – and I speculated last year – that she probably paid for the Trump Dossier, but we just didn’t know it for sure.  Now we do.  Question answered.
  • And we knew that there had been all sorts of lawlessness going on during the Obama Administration – the IRS scandal, the utter corruption in the Justice Department and the FBI, Hillary Clinton’s using her position at the State Department to massively enrich herself by selling influence, the sham investigation by James Comey related to the Clinton email server, the shipping of $1.6 billion in U.S. and foreign currency to the terrorist supporting regime in Iran, all the patently unconstitutional executive orders related to immigration and Obamacare, and on and on and on.
  • We knew it was all going on, but had no law enforcement officials willing to investigate and prosecute any of it, and no honest reporting on any of it from the fake news media who all thought Obama was the second coming of John F. Kennedy, so we weren’t sure of all the details.  Now we know many of the details, with much, much more to come.
  • Speaking of more details, Obama’s Director of National Intelligence, James Clapper, let another key detail slip on CNN yesterday morning as he was being fake interviewed by the hopelessly vapid fake news host Alisyn Camerota.  Mr. Clapper, in the middle of one of his confused, rambling answers, told Ms. Camerota the stunning news that the Obama Administration had opened a “counterintelligence investigation” into the Trump campaign before James Comey got ahold of the fake Trump Dossier that had been financed by the DNC and the Clinton campaign.  Ms. Camerota is so hopelessly dimwitted that she just let that amazing tidbit of information pass without asking a followup question.
  • A real, actual journalist would have heard that answer and said, “wait, what?  Did you just tell our audience that a sitting president of the United States of America was investigating the likely nominee of the opposition party before his FBI got hold of that dossier?  When was that investigation opened?  Why was it opened?  On what factual information did the FBI think it needed to investigate one of President Obama’s political opponents?”  Yeah, none of those questions were asked, and the moment was lost.  Now, Mr. Clapper will lay low for awhile and make up a better story for future interviews.
  • But this is just one more detail that we didn’t know before, a detail that helps us understand why the Democrats and their supporters in the fake news media reacted so insanely after Donald Trump won the election.  All these people knew about all the criminal behavior that Democrats had engaged in during the Obama years, and all these people assumed they were safe, because Hillary Clinton was going to win the election.
  • That’s why you saw so many ashen faces, even open weeping, among the fake news people on CNN, MSNBC and the major networks as the results started coming in from Michigan, Wisconsin and Pennsylvania on Election Night.  It’s why Hillary Clinton was incapable of coming out to speak to her loyal supporters once the results were known, and had to send her evil toady John Podesta down to shoo them away instead.
  • Moreover, it’s also exactly why you saw the Democrats and fake news media start coordinating on the whole Trump/Russia collusion fantasy play immediately after the election – it’s a classic Projection strategy.  The Clintons have always used the Projection strategy anytime they’ve been caught in any wrongdoing.
  • In such situations, the Clintons have always, without exception, resorted to muddying the waters by accusing their opposition of engaging in the very same wrongdoing in which they’ve been involved.  The fact that they’ve always been able to rely on 95% of the nation’s news media to simply parrot their talking points 24 hours a day is how they have survived for this long.
  • They all knew they were all safe as long as Hillary won, and they also knew that no one was safe now that Donald Trump had won.  For the last 11 and a half months, our entire nation has been tied up in a massive Democrat/fake media projection project, and it’s all slowly, finally unwinding.
  • Thank you, President Trump, for that.

Just another day in Russia collusion fantasy America.

That is all.

  • Tired of all this winning yet? – the fake news media are now eating their own.  Ain’t it great?  On Wednesday, the fake journalists at CNN, desperate to find a way to climb out of their perpetual third place position behind MSNBC and Fox News, ran a story alleging that MSNBC regular contributor Mark Halperin has been charged with harassment by no fewer than five women.  CNN’s own lineup of pompous fake male TV hosts better hope that their own behavior in the workplace has been pure as the driven snow over the years, because you can bet their fake counterparts at MSNBC will out looking for some allegation of their own in the wake of this take-down of Halperin.  It’s so great when horrible people start a war with one another.  It’s like watching a football game between the Eagles and the Redskins.
  • In the market for even more winning now? – Iowa Senator Chuck Grassley, chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, has now called for the Justice Department to appoint a new special counsel to investigate the ballooning Uranium One scandal.  On Fox News this morning, Sen. Grassley expressed his concern that current Special Counsel Robert Mueller is “conflicted” on this matter, given information that has come to light that the details of the scandal were kept hidden from the public by the FBI when he led that agency during 2009 and 2010.  “Conflicted” is a very kind word for Mueller’s situation related to this matter.
  • Grassley took a shot at Attorney General Jeff Sessions, who recused himself from being involved in any investigations related to allegations the Trump Campaign had somehow “colluded” with Russia, tweeting “Whoever in DOJ is capable w authority to appoint a special counsel shld do so to investigate Uranium One “whoever” means if u aren’t recused”.  Ouch.  But Sessions has no legitimate reason for expanding his idiotic recusal to Uranium One, given that the events related to it took place many years before the 2016 presidential contest.
  • We already know we cannot trust Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein to act appropriately here.  After all, he’s the guy who selected the hopelessly conflicted Mueller – best friend of key witness James Comey, and a running buddy of Rosenstein’s to boot – to investigate the whole Trump/Russia fantasy in the first place.  Plus, he was working as a U.S. Attorney under Obama AG Eric Holder during the time period in which the Uranium One scandal took place, and has his own potential conflicts related to the matter.
  • No, this is a decision Mr. Sessions must make himself, and a formal request for a special counsel from the Chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee carries with it a weight that will be hard to ignore.  It really is long past time for Jeff Sessions to do his job.
  • Speaking of Jeff Sessions doing his job, his Justice Department on Wednesday did lift its long-standing gag order that has prevented a supposed key witness in the Uranium One money laundering scheme to testify before congressional committees investigating the scandal.  In a statement,  DOJ spokesman Ian Prior said the the informant was authorized to disclose to the congressional leaders of three committees “any information or documents he has concerning alleged corruption or bribery involving transactions in the uranium market, including but not limited to anything related to Vadim Mikerin, Rosatom, Tenex, Uranium One, or the Clinton Foundation.”
  • This scandal, suppressed successfully by the Obama Justice Department for seven long years, is now taking on a life of its own, and Senator Grassley, with his well-earned reputation for impartiality, has become the key player.  Once Grassley weighed in with his request to DOJ, it made the scandal impossible for Democrats and RINOs like Senate Intelligence Committee Chairman Richard Burr to contain.  After spending the last 10 months helping to facilitate the Democrat/news media Trump/Russia collusion fantasy play, even Mr. Burr will be forced to start taking a serious look at all the massive wrongdoing and lawlessness that took place during the Obama Administration.  Thus, we can expect other Obama-era scandals like the thousands of unwarranted unmasking requests by senior officials and the real progeny of the fake Trump Dossier to become the subject of more intense scrutiny by congressional committees.
  • The dam on Clinton/Obama corruption has burst, and we can thank Senator Grassley for having yanked all the RINO fingers out of the dike.

Just another day in the Worm is Finally Turning America.

That is all.

The Russia Uranium Story Is A Chance For Our Useless Attorney General To Finally Step Up To The Plate

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

  • Our thus-far useless Attorney General Jeff Sessions will likely finally be put on the spot today, as he testifies before the Senate Judiciary Committee.  Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley is expected to question Sessions about his knowledge of a Russian bribery scheme that took place during the early Obama years, and involved kickbacks to government officials and massive Russian money going to the Clinton Crime Family fake Foundation, along with millions of dollars in “speaker’s fees” to former President Bill Clinton.
  • The payoff for the Russians was, of course, the awarding of a federal permit to buy Uranium One, a company that controls about 20% of U.S. uranium assets, by a Russian firm in which Vladimir Putin owns an interest.  The approval of that permit was made by what the Obama Administration called the Committee On Foreign Investment in the United States (CFIUS), on which both Attorney General Eric Holder and then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton were members.  Imagine that.
  • We’ve all known the basics of this scam for years, but assumed that James Comey’s FBI and Holder’s Justice Department simply looked the other way and allowed then-Sec. Clinton to coordinate all this money laundering with impunity.  But it turns out that the FBI actually did investigate this matter during 2009-10, and found criminal wrongdoing before Holder and likely then-President Obama put a halt to it.
  • All of that and more is contained in a story broken on Tuesday by reporters John Solomon and Alison Spann for The Hill.  Grassley apparently became aware of this situation last week, and sent letters to all relevant federal agencies who had members on CFIUS, demanding they produce documentation that would indicate whether their representative on the committee had knowledge of this FBI investigation when they voted to approve the sale of Uranium One to Russia.
  • Grassley, who is famously plain-spoke when he is angry, had this to say about the matter on Tuesday:  “It has recently come to the Committee’s attention that employees of Rosatom were involved in a criminal enterprise involving a conspiracy to commit extortion and money laundering during the time of the CFIUS transaction.  The fact that Rosatom subsidiaries in the United States were under criminal investigation as a result of a U.S. intelligence operation apparently around the time CFIUS approved the Uranium One/Rosatom transaction raises questions about whether that information factored into CFIUS’ decision to approve the transaction.”
  • It is into this breach that our thus-far useless Attorney General steps today.  Mr. Sessions has to this point very conveniently recused himself from anything having to do with Russia – because he had a meeting with the Russian Ambassador during the presidential campaign – as a means of facilitating his reluctance to deal with all of the rampant lawlessness that took place during the Obama Administration.  It is this baseless recusal that led to the appointment of Special Counsel Bob Mueller, and to the continued stonewalling of several congressional investigations and court cases by the FBI.  While many conservatives who support President Trump – myself included – were excited about the Sessions appointment when it was made, he has turned out to be one of the most disappointing hires made by this President.
  • While the fake news media – other than The Hill – are doing their best to ignore this story, given that it involves wrongdoing by so many of their Democrat heroes, today is actually a very pivotal moment for the Trump Administration.  If Mr. Sessions continues his posing as having a reason to recuse himself from Russia matters, even as they have absolutely nothing to do with the Trump presidential campaign, then that should be cause for the President to fire him and replace him with someone who really is interested in doing this job.
  • What this story shows us clearly is that the entire “Russia Collusion” fantasy play foisted on the public by the Democrats, the fake news media and willing Republican sympathizers in congress since last November is nothing but another classic case of Clintonian projection strategy.  The Clintons – and the Obama Administration – were involved in collusion with the Russian government throughout Hillary Clinton’s time as Secretary of State, and, when Trump won the election, knew that all of this would likely come to light.
  • The Clintonian strategy in situations like this has always been to get ahead of such revelations by accusing their opponents of the very same kind of wrongdoing first, in order to divert public attention away from their own actions.  The real collusion here has been between the Clintons, the Obamas, the fake news media and swamp-dwelling Republicans who have facilitated their projection strategy, even to the point of creating a special counsel to investigate the fantasy.
  • Today is Jeff Sessions’ chance to prove his is up to the job he’s held since February.  I’m looking for a reason to think he will prove worthy of the task, but am having a really hard time finding one.  We’ll just have to wait and see.

Just another day in Russia Collusion America.

That is all.
