President Trump: Right About Ukraine, Right About Puerto Rico

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

You seriously cannot make these people up. – Elizabeth Warren has richly earned the nicknames of Fauxcahontas and Lieawatha. This is a woman who has spent her entire adult life brazenly lying not only about things she has done and things she claims other people have done, but also about who she even is as a person. Literally every aspect of her campaign and claimed personal biography are outright, laughable lies.

So, how does this lifelong 100% fraud of a human being respond, when asked by a reporter if it is wrong for any candidate to lie to the American people? Why, exactly as you would expect her to:

The sad thing is, that statement will most likely actually improve her standing among the Democrat Party’s depraved and ultra-ignorant voter base. Sad.

Trump was right, part 13,811. – As the Senate trial of President Donald Trump (I still never tire of typing those three glorious words) cranks up, it is important for everyone to remember how and why we arrived at this sorry point in the Democrat/media/Deep State’s neverending coup d’etat. As fortune would have it, a very timely and relevant reminder of the President’s good judgment popped up over the weekend in the U.S. territory of Puerto Rico.

First, Ukraine, which has served as the fulcrum for the idiotic Pelosi/Schiff impeachment scam. This entire thing is based on a phone call the U.S. President held with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky back in July. On that call, President Trump asked Zelensky to “do us a favor” and ensure that his equivalent of the Justice Department look into the very shady activities in his country of Joe and Hunter Biden, and to investigate interference in the 2016 election by various officials of the previous Ukrainian government.

Pelosi/Schiff and their toadies in the corrupt American news media have attempted to portray this very valid, lawful and in fact necessary request by Mr. Trump as a crime worthy of having him removed from office. This request was in fact part of the President’s duty in keeping with his oath of office given that the U.S. has multiple anti-corruption laws related to international business transactions, as well as an anti-corruption treaty with the Ukraine that requires both countries to police activities within their borders.

President Trump has long known from his own experience that Ukraine is an utterly corrupt country, and Burisma, the natural gas company that awarded Hunter Biden with a cushy, high-paying seat on its Board of Directors, has been at the center of much of that illicit activity. Corruption has long run rampant in Ukraine, on a par with what we see in the failed state of Mexico.

President Trump has on many occasions described his conduct of this call with Zelensky as “perfect,” and indeed, it was exactly that. It is an undeniable fact that the previous Ukrainian administration did interfere in the 2016 presidential election on behalf of Hillary Clinton and the DNC, and it is an undeniable fact that Hunter and Joe Biden profited handsomely by selling the then-Vice President’s influence to Burisma.

President Trump was right about the Ukraine, and did what his oath of office required him to do.

Now, let’s look at Puerto Rico, the U.S. territory whose government has also long been run by utterly corrupt leftists. After the island was devastated by Hurricane Maria in 2017, President Trump authorized FEMA and the U.S. military to mount a massive relief effort that cost the U.S. taxpayer well over $100 billion.

The President also attempted to take steps to ensure that the distribution of the relief funds and supplies would not be left entirely in the hands of the Puerto Rican government, which he knew to be little but a den of thieves. Again, he was simply doing his job, but of course he was roundly blasted by Democrats and their media toadies who smelled an opportunity to score political points on the backs of suffering Puerto Ricans. Because this is what Democrats do.

The President was portrayed as a heartless, ignorant buffoon who didn’t care about the suffering of all those people who had lost their homes and fortunes in the storm. But in reality, he was attempting to ensure that the relief ended up getting to the people who needed it the most.

In the end, the Administration ended up throwing up its hands and deciding to leave the distribution of the aid in the hands of the Puerto Ricans. Over the weekend, we saw the result of that decision, as the head of Puerto Rico’s emergency management agency was fired after a locked, gigantic warehouse filled with thousands of tons of emergency supplies was discovered and revealed to the public.

As reported by the Daily Caller:

One resident of Ponce posted a video of the discovery to Facebook, showing a massive warehouse full of pallets upon pallets of bottled water, non-perishable food, diapers, baby formula, and emergency supplies, according to CNN. The video is now private, after the man who recorded it was threatened with repercussions from law enforcement, but the news network says the warehouse contained much-needed supplies that are still useful (and valuable) particularly now that Ponce is suffering from a second natural disaster.

Yes, of course the citizen who revealed the atrocity to the public is now being punished by the utterly corrupt, leftist government.

So, yet again we see the President was 100% correct in his assessment of a foreign government. How long can it be before the Democrats who are in league with the Puerto Rican leftists and want to turn that island into the 51st state so their party can have two additional senators try to use this as the pretext for their next impeachment effort?

If these people didn’t exist, you could never make them up in a million years.

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.

The “Whistleblower” Scandal is Just Another Fantasy Play

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

Cow farts? What cow farts? – At the annual Steak Fry in Polk County, Iowa, Democrat presidential contenders helped cook up roughly 10,500 steaks and other cuts of beef for the attendees over the weekend. This conspicuous consumption of the by-products of cattle comes after those selfsame Democrats had spent six full months lecturing us all that we need to quit eating beef because the cow farts are destroying our environment.

You seriously could never in a million years make these people up, folks.

The motives behind the “whistleblower” fake scandal are now becoming clear. – Some are speculating that this is a Democrat/media effort to protect Joe Biden from persistent allegations of wrongdoing in his dealings with Ukraine while serving as Vice President. Others are speculating that it’s an effort by the Democrat/media complex to recover from the utter failure of their fake “Russia Collusion” narrative.

It is becoming increasingly clear that it is in fact both, and even more. It’s also an effort by the Democrat/media complex to protect Hillary Clinton and her corrupt use of Ukraine spying efforts against the Trump Campaign in 2016.

Where Biden and Hillary are concerned, Rudy Giuliani laid it all out very clearly to a very uncomfortable John Roberts of Fox News on Sunday morning. Roberts did his best to obfuscate and shift focus on BidenClinton’s  behalf, but Rudy got the message out in a very specific and brutal way regardless. Here’s the clip – watch it at this link.

So, here are the bullet points on Rudy’s comments:

– Ukrainian officials worked on Hillary Clinton’s behalf to interfere in the 2016 U.S. elections and were in fact paid to do so;

– When the newly-elected Ukrainian president came into office, his administration began trying to get proof of his predecessor’s interference efforts to the U.S. State Department and Justice Department, but those efforts were rebuffed for months by Obama holdovers;

– They finally decided to contact Giuliani last fall, and Rudy decided to take up the cause in large part because it would provide exculpatory evidence against the efforts by Special Counsel Robert Mueller and the Democrat/media complex to frame President Trump;

– Giuliani has been trying to get someone, anyone in the mainstream news media to report on the matter, but has met a stonewall of media corruption, including at Fox News;

– Meanwhile, Biden’s corrupt acts vis a vis Ukraine are a matter of public record, and video even exists of Biden bragging about strong-arming the 2016 Ukraine government to fire the prosecutor who was investigating his son’s firm for corruption. He was proud of it.

Now, while all that’s going on, percolating just below the surface waiting to bubble up in the midst of the Democrats’ presidential nominating race, the Mueller Report comes out and is a complete dud. This leaves San Fran Nan, Jabba The Nadler and Bug Eyes Schiff in the lurch, pulling the rug out from under their grand plans to impeach the President on obstruction of justice grounds.

What to do, what to do?

What is now becoming obvious is that Schiff or someone close to him in the Lawfare community came up with the idea of dummying up a new pretense for “obstruction.” How do they do that? Well, the intelligence bureaucracy is still teeming with Obama holdovers eager to do the work of the Deep State. Just get one of them to file a complaint against President Trump under the intelligence community’s whistleblower statute.

While all this scheming is going on, lo and behold, President Trump holds a call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky in which the corrupt actions of Vice President Joe Biden becomes one of the topics that arise during a discussion about all the rampant corruption that took place under Zelensky’s predecessor. Now, all you have to do is find someone in the intel community – preferably one of the array of senior folks who listened in on the call first-hand – to file a complaint. When none of those people heard anything to complain about, no problem – you just find some second-tier Obamaphile who heard some stuff about the call second-hand, and presto!, you have your “whistleblower.”

Next, have Schiff, in his role as Chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, start filing subpoenas for documents, recordings and testimony that he knows he will never receive. He knows this because a) the intelligence community’s whistleblower statute does not apply to the president of the United States, and b) such requests present all manner of separation of powers issues under the Constitution, as I explained in yesterday’s Campaign Update. Thus, with the White House refusing for very valid reasons to cooperate, you send Bug Eyes and his deputies out to be interviewed every hour on the hour on CNN and MSNBC and Shep Smith at Fox, wailing about the President’s “obstruction of congress.”

Now, it’s time to bring the thousands of Democrat media toadies into the game, complete with a set of talking points they all loyally parrot on TV, radio and in their print publications. Those talking points maintain that Biden did nothing wrong, that Hillary was never involved with the Ukraine, and the only person who ever did anything bad related to Ukraine since The Ukraine was invented is the Bad Orange Man in the White House.

So now we have a layer of media protection atop both Hillary and Crazy Uncle Joe, and Schiff running all over the place claiming a new “obstruction” scandal that supposedly gives the House grounds to impeach the President. All that over a phone call that was clearly a perfectly fine instance of the POTUS conducting U.S. foreign policy as envisioned in the Constitution. It’s as brilliant as it is evil.

Now, there’s nothing real to worry about here, given that the entire case against the President is made up out of whole cloth, exactly as the entire “Russia Collusion” fantasy was. The Democrats aren’t doing any of this out of any real thought they might actually be able to impeach Donald Trump. They’re simply using it as a distraction to protect two of their Party’s most corrupt icons, and in hopes of damaging Trump’s chances at re-election.

It is no accident that all of this arises just as the President’s public approval ratings have again risen above those enjoyed by Barack Hussein Obama His Own Self at the same point during his first term in office. It is also no accident that it all comes up as the Trump economy refuses to cooperate with the Democrat/media’s six-week-long effort to talk us into a recession. I mean, when you have Bloomberg publishing a piece titled, “Hold that Recession: U.S. Indicators are Trouncing Forecasts,” you know that particular ship has run aground.

This latest elaborate bit of Democrat/media theater will likely have a similar lifespan before it has entirely imploded and run its course. It will fail just as all the prior fantasy plays against Trump have failed, because Trump did nothing wrong.

It’s tiresome, but this is all these corrupt, morally-and-intellectually-bankrupt Democrats have. You would think they’d get tired of all the scheming and play-acting at some point, but no, it’s only going to get worse as Election Day 2020 approaches.

This will never end until we stop electing Democrats. It really is that simple.

That is all.

The Democrat Clown Car is on the Fast Track to a Brokered Convention

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

Are you ready for a deadlocked Democrat convention next year? – Because that’s where all of this Democrat traveling clown show is headed.

Fauxcahontas is now an even more-clear favorite to get to the convention with the most delegates next July, although her chances of arriving there with a full majority needed to win on the first ballot remain small. Hell, she’s already playing the role of the front-runner in the debates.

Last night in Houston, she stood quietly for the most part while also-ran doofuses like Irish Bob O’Rourke and Julian Castro and Amy Klobuchar and Andrew Yang shouted and gesticulated and poured out the “I’m gonna grab your guns” and “Trump’s a racist” red meat for the party’s lunatic Twitter-outraged base. During the debate’s first hour, almost 20 minutes went by in between times when Little Mouth Always Running actually opened her mouth on stage, as all the nitwits around her tried to tear each other apart. That could be an all-time record for Princess 1/1024th.

While Yang was promising to have his campaign illegally pay out $1,000 a month for the next 12 months to twelve families in order to buy their votes, Preacher Pete was trying to get everybody to sing his own particular weird version of Kumbaya, Castro was cracking jokes about Biden’s advanced age, The Commie was trying to croak out some Bolshevik nostrums from his 77 year-old sore throat, Kamala was cackling like an evil character from a 1950s Disney movie, O’Rourke was promising to come grab everybody’s guns and trying to figure out exactly when to toss out an f-bomb and Klobuchar was getting ready to start throwing notebooks at the moderators, the fake Indian was doing her best imitation of Sitting Bull, calmly observing the fray and happy to let her enemies destroy one another.

It was a smart strategy. Whatever else one thinks about Sen. Warren, you cannot deny that she’s strategically smart. I mean, hell, she spent a virtual lifetime pretending to be someone she isn’t in order to advance her career before Trump came along and exposed her fraud to the world. That alone tells you she’s a clever schemer.

She’s clever enough to understand that being a life-long fraud is in fact a badge of honor in a Democrat presidential nominating contest, and so there she was last night, standing right in the middle of that stage next to Biden. She probably came into last night planning to take some shots of her own at Biden, but quickly realized that Castro and Harris and other were doing a fine job of exposing the elderly hack for what he is.

That quick thinking also shows she knows her own limitations. She has to understand that her angry school-marm voice and speaking tone quickly begins to grate and irritate, so why overdo that during a 3-hour debate that was viewed by millions?

As for Biden, if it weren’t for the fact that he’s been such a despicable swamp creature hack for so many decades it would be sad watching his visible decline on national television. His cognitive functions are so clearly limited now that it is visible on his face every time he’s asked a question for which he hasn’t been coached, or one that touches on an uncomfortable subject. If you can stand it, go watch a replay of the debate on Youtube. You can see Biden visibly recoil and squeeze his eyes shut whenever he’s asked a question that surprises him, which was typically from another candidate, not the accommodating moderators.

I’ve been telling you since April that Biden’s polling lead would be gone by October and he’d be out of the race entirely after next March 4, Super Tuesday. He’s right on schedule to meet that calendar, especially after his performance last night. The more he gets exposed to the public, the worse he looks.

As for the others, Harris is done. She is an awful campaigner and frankly a horrid debater. Everything about her screams insincerity and meanness.

Sanders will also fade after this croaking performance. Democrat voters are all about optics and the feels, and a 78 year-old croaking at them for three hours will make them feel all nervous and stuff.

Irish Bob is a furry circus clown who just announced the fourth re-boot of his campaign in six months. He’s to the point where even shallow Democrat voters think he’s a shallow opportunist.

Julian Castro never has been in any way relevant in this race, and his low attacks on Biden last night won’t change that.

Preacher Pete is cute as a button and might look good as arm-candy for Fauxcahontas in a general election race.

Cory Booker is Cory Booker and always will be, so no one should take him seriously in this race.

Yang is just weird. What was going on with that top button on his shirt last night? Everyone kept waiting for it to pop open and expose some odd tattoo and thus only heard about 1 out of 7 words he had to say. Again, Democrat voters are all about optics and feels, dude. Get a shirt that fits.

Klobuchar is just the angry version of Kirstin Gillibrand. No reason for her to be up there in the first place. She’s just wasting everybody’s time.

I feel like I’m forgetting somebody here, but honestly, I don’t care.

Here are my updated odds for the 2020 Democrat nomination after last night’s atrocity:

Fauxcahontas – 3 to 1

The Commie – 10 to 1

Biden – 50 to 1

Harris – 100 to 1

Preacher Pete – 100 to 1

The Field – 100 to 1

Someone not yet in the race – Even odds

Brokered convention, here we come.

That is all.

Fauxcahontas Makes Heap Big Surge in Presidential Race

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

We here at the Campaign Update have consistently noted that Democrat voters love being lied to, and they appear determined to prove us right. If you hadn’t already picked up on it, the biggest surge in the Democrat nominating race over the past couple of months has not come from Mayor Pete Buttigieg, who has settled into polling consistently in the 7-8% support range. While that’s fairly respectable, we might have expected a little better performance from a guy who has received tens of millions of dollars in free, fawning air time from our fake news media since March.

No, the biggest surge has come from exactly the source we should have all anticipated, the life-long human fraud who has gotten everything she has achieved in life by lying. This is a woman who doesn’t just lie about economics, not just about the law, not just about public policy; oh, no, that’s not nearly enough. Elizabeth Warren is a woman who has spent her entire adult life disgracefully lying about who she even is as a person, pretending to be of American Indian descent in order to move ahead in line for plum jobs, to obtain licenses to practice law, and even to get elected to the United States Senate.

Making things even more hilarious – and thus making her even more appealing to liar-obsessed Democrat voters – Warren had become so bought into her own line of BS that she even resorted to taking a DNA test to prove her life of lies last year. When the test came back with the finding that she might – maybe – have 1/1024th native American blood in her stream, she immediately paraded around on a public “victory” tour. Only the loud objections from several Indian Tribes put a stop to that nonsense.

But why would it surprise us that her initial reaction to having been publicly proven to be a heinous, life-long fraud would be to stage a celebration? After all, this is a woman who wants to be the Democrat presidential nominee, and while she’s a horribly dishonest individual, she isn’t stupid. She knows what appeals most to her party’s demented voter base, and that DNA test was proof she had the main qualification to win their support.

You have to think like these Democrats think, folks. I know it’s hard, but once you do, everything they do makes perfect sense.

Anyway, getting to the point here, we’ve had a spate of new polls of the Democrat race released in the past few days, and they show a clear Lieawatha surge, one that well outpaces the little boomlet Mayor Pete’s enjoyed. Quinnipiac, which showed Warren getting just 4% support in March, now has her at a very strong 15%, just 4 points behind the Commie. Economist/YouGov, meanwhile, has her at 16%, 4 points ahead of the old Bolshevik, and just 11 points behind Creepy Uncle Joe.

At the state level, a new Des Moines Register poll has her surging to 15% support in that state, in a virtual tie with the Commie and 9 points behind Biden. In Nevada, another key early caucus state, a new poll by Monmouth shows her firmly in second place at 19% support.

And a note about Warren consistently now getting at or above that 15% support level: That’s the level of votes a candidate must attain to win delegates in the party’s new proportional system for 2020. Thus, Lieawatha now joins Biden and the Commie as the only candidates consistently breaching that key threshold.

Little Mouth Always Running’s recent surge, along with her solid fundraising efforts, have now clearly established her as the strongest woman in the race. Kamala Harris, who all the “experts” believed was the odds-on favorite to be the main challenger to Biden back in January, continues to struggle and her polling numbers have settled into an essential tie with Mayor Pete. Although she on the surface seems like a female carbon political copy of Barack Hussein Obama his own self, she so far simply lacks Obama’s ability to connect with voters.

In other words, Kamala is just a lousy candidate. Who knows – maybe if she made up a back story about how her great grandmother always told her she was a space alien, that might be an obvious-enough lie to steal voters away from Fauxcahontas. Do lies about Aliens trump lies about Indians in demented Democrat thought? Hard to know until it’s been tried, Kamala.

In any event, the math on this race is becoming increasingly clear as the contestants lurch towards their first debates later this month. We have a top tier of contenders that consists of the Creepy Uncle every family wants to hide in the basement, a Commie trying to pretend he’s merely a socialist, a fake Indian, a modestly unsuccessful mayor of a mid-size city most Americans have never heard of, and a Senator who advanced her career by having a years-long affair with a power broker twice her age. The other 20 or so candidates need to devise better sets of lies if they want to move up the pecking order.

Way to go, Democrats!

That is all.

Beto Really Hopes That What Happened in Vegas Stays in Vegas

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

I’m old enough to remember when Beto was the “next Kennedy.”  – At least, that’s what all the dreamy-eyed girls and guys in our fake news media kept telling us last fall, when Irish Bob O’Rourke was running against an evil Republican named Ted Cruz for a senate seat in Texas. Back then, all those Millennial fake journalists fought tooth and nail with one another to be Beto’s date, to get that coveted assignment of covering his campaign or writing a glowing profile of the three-term congressman with the unremarkable record. Heck, even a lot of Baby Boomer fake journalists got into that act.

That was then, this is now. None of the fake reporters want to date their precious Beto anymore. Beto played the field, broke too many hearts during the long winter which he spent dawdling around trying to “find himself” or something. He fooled around for so long that even all the college campus social justice warriors and snowflakes went off and found themselves another goofy Democrat to idolize and project their wildest idiotic dreams of a Marxist nirvana onto, an even younger Democrat with even better hair and an even more Kennedy-esque bearing.

Oh, Beto got off to a grand start. He raised $6.1 million during the first 24 hours following his long-awaited formal announcement, drew big crowds to his first few public events, and got gobs of free media attention for his initial tactic of driving around Iowa in a gas-guzzling mom van.

But since that heady initial first week when his support ran up into the teens in a couple of national polls, it’s all gone to hell in a furry hand basket. The fundraising has fallen off dramatically; the crowds have grown so small that he has a hard time filling up a roadside diner now; the fake reporters who used to scratch and claw with one another to date his campaign are now angry when their editor denies them a date with Mayor Pete or The Commie or Creepy Joe; the polling numbers are now mired in the mid-single digits, and he is bleeding campaign staff.

On Friday, the former media-created-and-supported “rising star” in the Democrat Party ventured out to Las Vegas to give a talk on the UNLV campus, and spoke to a gathering estimated at 35 souls. Not 35,000, not 3,500, not even 350. Thirty-five. That’s a 3 followed by a 5 with no 0s after it. Not a typo.

That’s right: While Creepy Joe was cackling with the shrews on “The View”, Mayor Pete was getting profile after profile written by the fake media describing him as a “gay Christian” and “kryptonite for the Religious Right,” and The Commie was drawing big crowds in Ohio, Irish Bob O’Rourke was spending his time waving his arms and sweating and mumbling his standard meaningless platitudes at a few dozen coeds in Sin City.

Those meaningless platitudes are a big part of Irish Bob’s problem: His campaign has no meaning. As I wrote on Thursday, his campaign is like an episode of Seinfeld: A show about nothing starring a cynical guy who tells fake stories to small audiences for a living.

Yes, Democrat voters love to be lied to; yes, they love to be pounded with meaningless platitudes that they can memorize and then go scream at everyone after their third gin and tonic at the next happy hour at the local hipster bar; but the trick for a Democrat candidate is to make those meaningless platitudes his or her own.

In this task, Irish Bob is an epic failure. His major problem is that his meaningless platitudes are purely responsive. If The Commie’s for free college for everyone, why then, Irish Bob’s for it, too. If Fauxcahontas wants to come take your guns, why, so does Irish Bob! If Mayor Pete’s for Medicare for All, well, heck, Irish Bob says “Me, too!” And on and on it goes.

Ask yourself this question: What is Irish Bob O’Rourke’s signature issue? Sheep suits and skateboards don’t count.

If you’re sitting there without an answer – and you most certainly are if you are being honest with yourself – that’s my point.  The man is in a field with 19 other candidates and counting. Even with the vapid, mindless Democrat voter base, job number one for any candidate is to give those people a real reason to vote for him over all those other people. Latching onto all those other peoples’ ideas is not the way to go about it.

Being a cute, freakish novelty act will take you a long way in a Texas Senate race when you are the only person standing between the fake news media and someone the media hates as much as Ted Cruz. But it’s not going to get you very far in a field sprinkled with various other cute, freakish novelty acts and Democrat veterans onto whom all the SJWs, snowflakes and fake journalists can project their undying love, faith and loyalty.

Political lightning is a fickle thing. Irish Bob is finding out the hard way that relying on it to strike twice instead of doing the hard work of mounting a real, substantive campaign is a formula for failure.

That is all.

Joe Biden Continues the Democrat Obsession With Political Losers

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

The Democrat presidential nomination battle is already a three-ring circus, and the far left elements of the Democrat base are going to make sure it stays that way.

Yesterday, ex-Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper, who is struggling to gain a foothold in the race, found himself in trouble with the social justice warrior crowd when his effort to imply that a woman may well win the nominating contest fell flat with the humorless left.  The first mistake Hickenlooper made was accepting CNN’s invitation to get a little (very little, given CNN’s dwindling audience) free media by doing a televised town hall hosted by leftist activist Dana Bash on Wednesday night. The second mistake he made was to try to inject a little wit into any answer to any question, because he is trying to attract votes from the most witless element of our society.

When Bash asked him the standard question about whether or not he would name a woman as his running mate, Hickenlooper first said “Of course.” Had he just stopped right there and waited for the next question, he’d have been just fine. Unfortunately for Hickenlooper, he felt the need to expand. It all went downhill from there.

“But … I’ll ask you another question,” Hickenlooper said, “How come we’re not asking, more often, the women, ‘Would you be willing to put a man on the ticket?’”

Now, the ex-Governor’s intent there was to imply that, in this nominating race, it is entirely possible that a woman might win the nomination – his answer was a little back-handed jab at Bash for assuming a man is going to come out on top. With Sen. Kamala Harris currently running a strong third in the polls behind two pasty white guys who are older than the dirt Irish Bob O’Rourke eats for breakfast, and the Pantsuit Princess and Michelle Obama still lurking out there in the wings, it is certainly entirely possible the Democrat Party will once again have a female nominee in 2020.

But the leftist outrage mob has no sense of humor or understanding of this thing called “wit”, and is determined to be outraged. That determination meant that Hickenlooper’s remark was intended as a shot against women, not a compliment to them, as the outrage mob went berserk all over CNN, MSNBC and social media all day on Thursday.

The moral of this story? Understand your audience, Governor. Never try to inject wit into an answer when you’re seeking the votes of witless people. Just say “Of course”, accept the inevitable applause, and move on.

Speaking of moving on, the radical nutjobs at Moveon.org this week put out a demand to all of the Democrats running for the presidency to boycott this year’s meeting of the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) as an expression of their support for the wave of rank anti-Semitism that currently infests the American left. To no one’s surprise, at least eight of the candidates, eager to appeal to the growing Ilhan Omar faction of the demented Democrat voter base, have agreed to participate in the boycott.

Those agreeing to Moveon’s demand thus far include Kamala Harris, Irish Bob O’Rourke, The Commie, Fauxcahontas, Kirsten Gillibrand, Julian Castro, Pete Buttigieg, and Jay Inslee. No word yet from Hickenlooper, Biden, Amy Klobuchar, Andrew Yang or Cory Booker, but you can be sure they will all be under intense pressure today to follow their fellow spineless candidates over this anti-Semite cliff.

Then there’s Creepy Uncle Joe. The elderly, pasty-white guy from Delaware is anxious not to become the prime target of the mushrooming “we hate old white guys” faction of the party’s voter base. In the hopes of putting a beard on his blinding old white guy-ness, Biden is now floating a trial balloon in which he would promise to name failed Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams, who happens to be female and black, as his running mate.

So once again, this current Democrat obsession with political looooooooosers raises its curious head.  Nothing against Ms. Abrams, but she lost her race, lost it by more than 50,000 votes in fact, despite obviously benefiting from a pretty robust voter fraud operation and all the free media our fake news media could reasonably provide.

There are literally hundreds of successful, winning minority female politicians out there who Biden could have targeted for this trial balloon. For example, there’s Mad Maxine Waters, who for more than a year in 2017-18 was literally the demented face of the Democrat Party before the party’s leaders convinced her to tone things down. She’s won every election race she’s ever run – why not her?

Then there’s Texas congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee, who must be sitting around grumbling, “why not me?” Say what you will about Cong. Lee – and there are many, many things to be said about her – there is no denying that she has also been extremely successful in getting elected and repeatedly re-elected.

Speaking of winning Democrats who are making a real mark, there’s Cong. Ilhan Omar, who has now become the leading voice of anti-Semitism in America.  Why not her?

Or hey, how about a Hispanic 2018 gubernatorial candidate who actually won her race, like New Mexico’s Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham? Lord knows there are plenty of New Mexico citizens who would love to see her leave to run for Veep so they could get a do-over on that race.

But I digress.  The question here is why so much focus on Ms. Abrams, whose only actual experience in government is as a state representative who made no real mark in that role? Why was she chosen, out of all the possible candidates out there, to deliver the Democrat Party’s response to the State of the Union address? Why is this political loser considered to be such a rising influence within the Party?

Makes no sense to me.  But then, I’m not a Democrat.

Thank God.

That is all.

Joe Biden and Other Democrats Who Will Not be the 2020 Nominee

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

Some of these Democrats just missed their moments. Others never had a moment, and never will. – I’ve already talked about my belief  that Irish Bob O’Rourke missed his moment by dithering around for four months before announcing his candidacy, but let’s talk about two other Democrats who missed their moments by not running in 2016 against the Pantsuit Princess:  Elizabeth Warren and Cory Booker.

Had she run in the 2016 Democrat primaries, Senator Little Mouth Always Running might have been able to leverage herself in between The Commie and the Fainting Felon as the compromise candidate for the party’s voters. True, it would have been extremely hard overcoming the pernicious influence of the Clinton Machine, which conspired with the DNC to rig the nominating process, but having a third “legitimate” candidate in the race might have made that rigging harder to achieve.

Warren’s false claims of Native American heritage – which she undeniably used to secure a plum spot on the faculty at Harvard – had been revealed long before 2016 and would have become an issue in the nominating process, no question. But by sitting out that race, Warren has given President Donald Trump another two solid years to pound her fraudulent reality as a human being into the public consciousness.

Two years ago, the conventional wisdom was that Warren would immediately become the odd-on favorite to win the 2020 nomination as soon as she announced she was running.  Instead, she has foundered along in single-digits in the preference polls, and most likely will never move any higher because even Democrat voters now consider her to be a walking, always talking ethnic joke.

We’ve seen a similar thing happen to Senator Spartacus from New Jersey. He has long aspired to be seen as the next Barack Obama, and had he done the bold thing that Obama did in 2008 and jumped into the 2016 nominating process despite an incredibly thin record of public service, he might well have been able to legitimately pick up that mantle and seriously challenge the Coughing Crook for the nomination.

Maybe he would have caught fire then like Obama did or maybe he wouldn’t have, but by sitting that one out and waiting another four years, he, like Fauxcahontas, ended up just giving himself another four years to become a walking joke with a self-inflicted nickname. Booker’s problem isn’t that people just don’t know who he really is, like one idiot talking head said the other day, it’s the fact that people hear his name and snicker. He’s done, and might as well go home.

Joe Biden never had a moment and never will. Yes, he’s leading the Democrat polls right now, but let’s all remember that at this point in 2015, Jeb! was strongly leading the GOP polls, and he ended up throwing more than $150 million down a rat hole without winning a single primary or caucus before unceremoniously ending his campaign. The same thing is going to happen to Biden.

This is Biden’s third run at the nomination, and he has three major problems: He’s simply an unattractive candidate, he is a pasty-white man, and he is too damn old to hold the office. I’m sorry – I have nothing against elderly Americans and aspire to become one myself fairly soon – but the office of the presidency is incredibly demanding and Joe Biden is an elderly man. These realities will become more and more apparent to the increasingly-leftist, social-justice-warrior-oriented Democrat voter base in the coming months.

Then there’s New York Senator Kirsten Gillibrand – what in the hell is she even doing in this race? That’s the key question she must answer, and she simply has no means of answering it. In a race that already includes liberal senators like Kamala Harris, Spartacus, Fauxcahontas and Amy Klobuchar, why should Democrat voters pick Gillibrand out of that lineup? Gillibrand is currently polling at either 0% or 1%, depending on which poll you look at, and she most likely will never rise more than a point or two above that before getting out of the race.

Meanwhile, she’s humiliating herself with tweets like this one:

My goodness. The scent of desperation literally wafts up from the computer screen.

I’ll have a second post later today detailing the real rising dark horses in this campaign, and their names will definitely surprise you.

That is all.

Fauxcahontas Sounds the War Cry on Flyover Country

The Afternoon Campaign Update
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

By now, most of you have heard that, in her town hall event on the Collaboration News Network (CNN), Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren endorsed the idea of completely eliminating the Electoral College, because of course she did.

“Every vote matters and the way we can make that happen is that we can have national voting, and that means get rid of the Electoral College,” Warren told the audience, “I believe we need a constitutional amendment that protects the right to vote for every American citizen and makes sure that vote gets counted. We need to put some federal muscle behind that, and we need to repeal every one of the voter suppression laws that is out there.”

There’s a lot to unpack there, so let’s start with the second part first: There simply are not any “voter suppression laws” on the books anywhere in the United States of America today, and there haven’t been since sometime in the late 1960s.

What the fake Indian Senator is doing there is the standard Democrat tactic of putting flowery language around eliminating voter ID laws. It’s just a part of the ongoing effort by the Democrat Party to make it as easy as possible for non-citizens and non-living persons, i.e., the “dead”, to vote for Democrats. These people are all about stealing elections via voter fraud, and are willing to do or say literally anything to achieve that goal.

Now, onto this attack on the Electoral College.

There was a time in the not-so-distant past when Democrats were all about protecting the sanctity of this crucial American institution, an institution that has played a vital role in preserving our Republic, and giving it a stability that no other democracy on the face of the earth has enjoyed over the last 230 years. That time was as recently as the 1980s, when Republicans were still competitive all across the Rust Belt and the Northeast, and in big population states like California and New York. Because the GOP ran up massive edges in vote totals all across the Southern states and the Midwest, Democrats would literally freak out anytime anyone even suggested doing away with the Electoral College.

Why? Because the entire purpose of the Electoral College is to ensure that no region of the country or handful of big population states in which one party or the other dominates the vote would be able to force a president on the rest of an unwilling country. Fauxcahontas and her fellow Democrats are bitter about the Electoral College today for the simple reality that, in 2016, this stroke of absolute genius by our nation’s founders worked exactly as it was designed to work.

Were it not for the Electoral College, our nation would today be stuck with President Fainting Felon due to her ability to run up lopsided vote margins in California and New York and a handful of other coastal states. Indeed, California alone accounted for virtually all of the Coughing Crook’s popular vote margin. The will of the states that lie in the vast middle of the North American continent – the 80% of America that coastal liberals like to refer to as “flyover country” – would have found ourselves completely disenfranchised and subject to the whims of a madwoman.

If you live in Flyover Country, that great sea of almost pure red on the map pictured below, you need to understand that the Democrat Party is doing everything it can to ensure your vote in future presidential elections will no longer matter. Because that is exactly what the impact of eliminating the Electoral College would be.

Luckily for all of us, the Electoral College is enshrined in the U.S. Constitution, and the only way do away with it would be via a constitutional amendment.  So long as Americans who truly do want their presidential votes to count remain educated on the matter and vigilant, getting that done will be virtually impossible.

The Democrat Party now finds itself willingly at war with so many Americans:

  • Unborn, and even just-born, children
  • Jewish Americans
  • Organized Labor
  • Older Americans (as discussed in this morning’s Campaign Update)
  • White men
  • Trump supporters
  • Everyone in Flyover Country

Obviously, there is a great deal of intersectionality among those various groups, but taken together, they constitute an overwhelming majority of the voting public. If everyone included in those groups would wake up to the reality of the mendacious nature of today’s Democrat Party, no Democrat could ever be elected to any office outside of San Francisco, Seattle, Austin, Chicago, Washington, DC or Manhattan again.

That is all.

The Week in Review: Beto, Biden and Bribes, Oh My!

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

The Week in Review, courtesy of the @GDBlackmon Twitter Feed…

The week began with the loss of an hour’s sleep due to our annual national act of Daylight Savings Time insanity, and it just went down from there.:

The sponsor of the “Green New Deal” was among fellow Climate Frauds in Austin on Sunday, and she got a selfie with one of the biggest frauds of all.:

This is, like, what AOC, like, sounds like when she….ummm…like, goes off script.:

Meanwhile, things continued to crumble out in Los Angeles…:

He isn’t often right, but he’s right about this.:

Greg Budell had the perfect solution for young Americans who favor turning our country into just another socialist cesspit of human misery.:

Fox News’s Tucker Carlson again became a target of the social media outrage mob when the scumbags at Media Matters dug up some comments he’d made on a talk radio program a decade ago. His response should serve as the role model for anyone caught up in such nonsense in the future.:

It’s always fun watching an old cowboy whipping a young thug’s ass, complete with taking his shirt.:

The fake news never stops at CNN, and Little Jimmy Acosta continues to be the most tireless yet least effective news-faker in the business.:

This bit of truth cannot be repeated often enough.:

Oh. Uh, wouldn’t that be, like, collusion or something?:

How many dead elderly Americans do you reckon polled to come to the conclusion that they aren’t happy?:

This man is seriously considering running for president. No, seriously, he really is.:

Think about it: You know it’s true.:

Man, that’s gonna make it a lot harder for the people at NOAA to keep defrauding the global temperature records.:

Is this even an arguable point? China is the world’s second-largest economy, and it is still taking money from the World Bank? Holy crap, we are such a bunch of suckers.:

She. Did. Not. Rule. Out. Impeachment.:

When the media refuses to correctly identify the root cause of the problem (in this case, Democrats) the problem will only continue to grow.:

A couple of true geniuses passed away this week. First, Dan Jenkins, probably the greatest and funniest sports writer who ever lived, died at the age of 94. Then, Hal Blaine, an incomparable studio drummer, joined Jenkins in the afterlife.:

Mitt Romney had a birthday, and all that did was remind us of his failings.:

It was a week when the Democrats really ramped-up their obsession with political losers.:

The truth about AOC emerged, and it really helped make sense of everything she says and does. If you haven’t taken the 23 minutes required to watch this expose’, make time to do it. You’ll be glad you did.:

Oh, well, call me insecure, then. *sigh*:

Pretty sure that’s also a piece of AOC’s “Green New Deal.” Isn’t sewer water generally green?:

Here, I try to educate some fake reporter who is lying about his interactions with folks from the oil and gas industry. I no doubt failed.:

Just thought you all should know this.:

Here I capture the essence of today’s Federal Bureau of Investigation.:

Well, I would.:

Here is leading Climate Fraud Bill McKibben, promoting what amounts to nothing more or less than mass child abuse.:

And now we pause for a little cat comedy gold.:

Ok, this intermission is going to last just a little longer…:

In other news, water continues to be wet.:

This was not the best piece I’ve ever written, but it might well be the cleverest headline.:

Self-awareness continues to be a personal weakness for Fauxcahontas.:

Ben Shapiro captured the pure essence of the media’s approach to writing Beto profiles.:

There are just so many unattractive options where Irish Bob O’Rourke is concerned.:

Seriously, was there still anyone out there who didn’t already know this?:

Try, just try, to imagine how utterly worthless a degree from NYU truly is.:

Well, of course he did.:

When his campaign comes up a crapper, he can replace Matthew McConaughey in those Lincoln ads.:

If you don’t follow Nick Searcy on Twitter, you are truly missing out on the fun.:

I got up in a sour mood on Friday. CNN only made it worse.:

Just hours after swearing we were all gonna die if we don’t stop using gasoline, Irish Bob was begging donors to pay to fill up his gas-guzzling minivan. You seriously cannot make this stuff up.:

No question about this.:

David Corn needs better talking points. This is just too easy.:

This happened.:

Now, for another funny break.:

When Chelsea Clinton was harassed by a Muslim college student, various conservatives rushed to her defense on Twitter. I couldn’t for the life of me figure out why. But then, I never cared much for virtue signaling.:

This is self-serving, but hey, it’s my blog.:

I always was a big fan of The Who.:

Those two options are not mutually-exclusive.:

Here, I offer a little free advice to Senator Ted Cruz.  I wish he’d take it – he’d be doing a national service.:

The clearest proof that “Climate Change” is a socialist-promoting scam is that its most prominent spokesmen are invariably people who don’t make any effort at all to change their own lifestyles.:

Finally, I’m a huge fan of Texas Governor Greg Abbott, but every once in a while he gets something wrong.:

Fake News Talking Heads Scorch Trump For Agreeing to a 10 Year-old Kid’s Request

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

Was he 1/1024th Indian, too? – Hey, we’re gonna need a new nickname for Fauxcahontas, ‘cuz now she’s pretending to be the reincarnation of Teddy Roosevelt.

That’s right, your favorite fake Indian decided yesterday that she needed a new schtick to help her bust through what has pretty much been a virtual media blackout on covering campaign, and decided it would just be a great thing start talking about breaking up all the big monopolies, as The Bull Moose did in the early 20th century with Standard Oil, the railroads and other big industrial “trusts”.

Of course, these days, the monopolies are not industrial in nature, but digital. Thus, Little Mouth Always Running’s announcement centered on busting up companies like Facebook, Amazon and Google. No word if Senator Whose Granny Had High Cheekbones plans on grabbing some of the long-dead President’s DNA so she can run a test on it, but it seems likely.

Speaking of media blackouts… – Unless you watch Fox News, you will have no idea at all that the U.S. military now believes that this very weekend will spell the death of ISIS as Allied troops overrun the few remaining square miles of territory still controlled by the terrorist group in Syria.

As the U.S. military-led offensive to rout the Calliphate cancer once and for all had been conducted over the last month, Fox has been the only television channel giving it any real coverage, with the others refusing to air film and photos of thousands of terrorist “soldiers” surrendering on the battlefield.

This is all in preparation for keeping President Trump’s January commitment to withdraw all but a handful of U.S. troops from Syria. That is exactly what needs to happen, given that ISIS still enjoys widespread support among the Syrian people, and that is an ongoing self-inflicted wound that no amount of U.S. military action can resolve.

The problem of ISIS is a problem of the Islamic soul, and continuing to have U.S. military personnel come home in body bags due to their involvement in this hopeless fight is a foolish action started by foolish presidents that this President was elected to end.

In case you get your news from the three major TV networks and missed it… – The effort by Chicago’s law enforcement community to make actor Jussie Smollett pay for his shameful hoax continued late Friday as a grand jury returned an indictment against him containing 16 felony counts of disorderly conduct.

The news-fakers at CNN ran a grudging story on its website with the following headline:  “Jussie Smollett Indicted on 16 Felony Counts for Allegedly Making False Reports.” The story’s first four paragraphs are structured to read like a defense of a falsely -accused man:

“‘Empire’ actor Jussie Smollett, who authorities say filed false reports of a crime, has been indicted on 16 felony counts by a Cook County grand jury.

The indictment charges Smollett, 36, with 16 counts of disorderly conduct.
Mark Geragos, one of Smollett’s attorneys and a CNN legal analyst, said the actor maintains his innocence and called the indictment “prosecutorial overkill.”
“This redundant and vindictive indictment is nothing more than a desperate attempt to make headlines,” Geragos said.”

Some of you non-Millennials may remember Mark Geragos as one of the sleazebag lawyers who defended both Michael Jackson and Scott Peterson. His career proves that even monsters are entitled to a strong defense under the law.

Ol’ Jussie’s not a monster – he’s just a Trump-hating jackass who perpetrated a poorly-planned hoax that wasted hundreds of thousands of taxpayer dollars, and the Chicago Police are going to hold him responsible for that, Geragos or not.

Why are DC media people and Never-Trumpers such pedantic creeps? – President Donald Trump just keeps driving America’s media nitwit class nuts, often without even trying.

Friday was a great example, as the President traveled down to Alabama to witness the devastation caused by this week’s terrible tornadoes, and visit with some of the survivors and families of victims.  During the course of that trip, the President was asked by several folks he met with at a local church facility if he would agree to sign their bibles. Those asking included several children and victims’ family members.

Being a normal person with an actual heart and not a pedantic Washington, DC media creep, the President readily agreed to sign the bibles – if he had refused, he would have been scorched by our fake news media, of course. But hey, he was scorched anyway, with talking heads on CNN and MSNBC tsk-tsking about the spectacle of an American president actually autographing Bibles of all things.

California Congressman Ted Lieu weighed in with a typically nasty tweet, but then had the good sense to delete it after he’d received massive pushback from his followers, admitting he’s so clueless he didn’t even know why the President was in Alabama in the first place. You just can’t make this stuff up:

Matthew Dowd, a minor figure in the Never-Trump movement who at one time in the past pretended to be a conservative, didn’t even have that much sense. Dowd issued at tweet in which he said “I don’t know who it is a worse commentary on: Trump actually signing Bibles in Alabama, or the people asking him to sign a Bible. Lordy Moses,” demonstrating his typical elitist’s contempt for both the current POTUS and ordinary Americans who are coping as best they can with a massive tragedy.

The truth is that tweet says a lot about Matthew Dowd, and none of it is good.

That is all.

Quick, Someone Get These Democrats A Self-Awareness Coach!

The Afternoon Campaign Update
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

It’s such a busy day that I thought I’d do some quick takes on the passing scene…

My take on the Academy Awards – Every Oscar went to some guy or woman I’ve never heard of for a movie I haven’t seen and won’t see in the future.

Oh wait: I have heard of Spike Lee, but after his childish display of petulance last night, I wish I hadn’t.

The lack of self-awareness is strong in this one… – Chelsea Clinton complains that her grandmother did not have access to Planned Parenthood.

Oh, my. Which grandmother was she talking about?  Grandmother Rodham, or Grandmother Clint…er, Hubb…er, never mind.

Speaking of lack of self-awareness, it’s a damn shame her parents didn’t possess such foresight. – Alexandria “The Boss” Ocasio-Cortez now says that today’s parents should not have any more kids because of, like, climate change and stuff, and there’s, like, this sort of “scientific consensus” that their lives will be hard, or something.

“Our planet is going to hit disaster if we don’t turn this ship around and so it’s basically like, there’s a scientific consensus that the lives of children are going to be very difficult,” Ocasio-Cortez said while chopping up food in her kitchen during an Instagram live video. “And it does lead, I think, young people to have a legitimate question, you know, ‘Is it okay to still have children?'”

For the record, the “scientific consensus” is that children born today will experience a lower percentage of poverty, lower percentage of hunger and disease and deprivation, and a higher standard of living and longer life expectancy than all prior generations of human beings.

But “The Boss” has her dogmatic fantasies, and as I pointed out this morning, confusing her with things like facts and truth and reality is a fool’s errand.

Why, that’s exactly how tens of millions of Americans feel about Harry Reid! – Harry Reid to CNN this morning:  “Is there anything I think the President Trump is doing right? I just have trouble accepting him as a person and so frankly I don’t see anything he’s doing right.”

By the way, after President Trump punched back at Reid’s taunt, the fake news media bashed Trump because Harry Reid has cancer.

You seriously cannot make this stuff up. Can someone please get these Democrats a self-awareness coach, STAT?

“…now let me tell you about all of these overtly-socialist policy ideas I support, starting with the Green New Deal…” – Here’s what Kamala Harris told a CNN interviewer this morning: “I certainly think that we should all want that our leaders do not engage in name-calling because that’s really just a very low-level of discourse,” says KamalaHarris. “I’m a progressive Democrat. I am a Democrat, I’m a proud Democrat. I’m not a socialist.”  Yeah, sure, uh-huh, right, you betcha.

*sigh*

She’ll just take all that cash behind closed doors. – Also from the news-fakers at CNN – so take it for what it is worth – Fauxcahontas is now ordering her staffers to be quiet about taking money from wealthy donors: “Sen. Elizabeth Warren is laying down a new rule for her presidential campaign: No fundraisers, dinners, receptions or phone calls with wealthy donors.”

Gosh, Judging from that cap, Mr. Evers must be a white supremacist. I’ve been assured that’s a correct assumption by the entirety of our nation’s news media establishment.:

Beto O’Rourke Had Better Fish or Cut Bait Very Soon

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

Oprah meet Beto; Beto meet Oprah…: – With his window of opportunity to get into the Democrat Party’s 2020 presidential nominating race rapidly closing, Irish Bob O’Rourke, fresh off a 30-day hiatus so he could “find himself” for about the 27th time in his goofy life, cast about for the highest-profile, most reliable Democrat media shill he could locate for a televised interview, and landed the biggest shill of all – Oprah Winfrey.

Filled with incisive, hard-hitting questions like “are you the real deal?” and “what’s it going to take for you to say ‘yes, I’m doing it’?”, Oprah’s interview soft-balled and powder-puffed its way to getting the famous Texas loser-to-Ted-Cruz to finally admit that he’s “been thinking about running for president” (you don’t say!) and he would announce his decision “before the end of the month.”  Oh, sing hosannas to the heavens and pass the flan!

The taping of the Oprah/Beto interview took place in New York City, presumably because The Oprah couldn’t be bothered to travel to Irish Bob’s technical home town of El Paso, Texas, and will air on The Oprah’s OWN network on Feb. 16, at which time I’ll be watching Wheel of Fortune or something on the History Channel.

Here’s the thing for Irish Bob: If he’s going to get into this race, he needs to do it now or sooner.  Last month would have been better, actually. It’s hard to keep up with it all at this point, but there are already at least 10 Democrats in the race, with at least a dozen more to come, and the laggards are going to find it harder and harder to properly staff their campaigns and raise the money to pay them. O’Rourke is married to a woman who is the heiress to a fortune reportedly worth billions, but unless Irish Bob’s dad-in-law is ready to fund the primary effort, our sheep-suit-wearing, tonsil-televising hero had better get his fundraising machine cranked up before all the big money has been otherwise committed.

A month ago I’d have made Irish Bob the odds-on favorite to be the 2020 Democrat nominee because he is the absolutely perfect Democrat candidate:  Completely unqualified; no accomplishments in the private sector of our economy of any note; no real accomplishments in government, either, for that matter; willing to say literally anything to attract votes from depraved and demented Democrat base voters; and he looks good on television. Hell, he even has his fake nickname that leads at least half of all Democrat voters to still think he is Hispanic or something, allowing him to tick off that “Minority” box even though he isn’t one, just like Fauxcahontas has made a habit of doing throughout her adult life in order to get ahead.

But today, with our fake news media already competing to jump ahead in line to promote the likes of Kamala Harris – who really is a minority and a woman to boot, and as unqualified and fraudulent as any candidate could be – Irish Bob runs the risk of becoming just another pretty face in the crowd if he waits too much longer to jump into the fray.  He has to remember that when running for the Democrat nomination, the most important endorsement doesn’t come from governors or senators or the party’s other “elder statesmen”.

No, the most important endorsement in the Democrat race comes from the fake news media. He had that full endorsement in his race against Ted Cruz, with the entirety of the Texas media actively campaigning on his behalf, and national outlets like the New York Times and CNN doing everything they could as well.

But he has to remember that he was a ‘party of one’ in that race – the only Democrat running, which made him the media’s default pick. The fact that he was running against Senator Cruz, who the media despise as fiercely as any Republican not named Trump, also helped lead to all those fawning puff pieces declaring him to be the next “Kennedy”.

Irish Bob hopes to ultimately be running against the even more-detested-by-the-fake-media Donald Trump, but first he will be running against probably two dozen fellow demented and depraved Democrats. That means he will not only have to compete with the likes of Harris, the Commie, the Fake Indian and Crazy Joe Biden for fawning attention from the national media, he even has to compete with former San Antonio Mayor Julian Castro for the front page puff pieces in the Austin American Statesman and Texas Tribune.

His problem today is that he’s cut this interview with The Oprah, so he can’t announce until it has aired, because if you cross The Oprah, you are well and truly a dead man walking in Democrat politics. So that’s at least another 10 lost days, days that he could have and should have been using to build a campaign.

So here’s the deal: If you haven’t seen Irish Bob make a formal announcement of his candidacy by noon on February 17, then you should probably quit obsessing about him, because he’s just too indecisive to succeed in a race against the bunch of ethics-devoid cutthroats he’d be up against in the Democrat primaries.

February 17 is your day, Irish Bob.  Fish, or cut the damn bait.

That is all.

It Was a Bad, Bad Night for Democrat Women

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

Liz Cheney for the Win!: – GOP Congresswoman Liz Cheney of Wyoming properly summed up the behavior of the white-and-blue-clad Democrat women at last night’s State of the Union message with a single devastating tweet:

“Things my Democrat women colleagues wouldn’t clap for at tonight: America, freedom, free enterprise, law enforcement heroes, record low unemployment for women & minorities, the right of babies to live. Things they did clap for: themselves.”

During the hour and twenty-one minutes it took to deliver the speech, President Donald Trump was interrupted by standing ovations 104 times, according to Fox News’s count. Probably 90 of those were Republicans-only affairs, joined only by a few straggling Red State Democrats who stood only when they had prior permission from Chuck Schumer or San Fran Nan.

It is stunning that the Democrat women couldn’t bring themselves to applaud the record low unemployment for women the Trump economy has delivered over the last two years. They did manage to stand and cheer when the President mentioned the fact that 58% of the new jobs created the past two years had been filled by women – but the cheering was ironic in nature (as Democrat cheering for American greatness always seems to be these days), a celebration of the victories by a couple of dozen freshmen Democrat women last November, at least half of which were achieved by outright voter fraud.

As if to emphasize that last point, the Dems then rolled out Stacey Abrams, the failed Georgia gubernatorial candidate who benefited from massive voter fraud in her losing effort, to deliver their paint-by-the-numbers response to the President’s speech. Like every other such response delivered by a Democrat, if you removed the true passages from the text, the speech would remain 98% intact. In fact, if you overlaid Abrams’ recital over that delivered last year by an amazingly hoarse Joe Kennedy, they would almost be identical. The Democrat messages of envy-based socialism and environmental alarmism never seem to evolve.

They just keep doubling down on the lies and brainwashing, which coincidentally is also what the Nazis did in Germany back in the 1930s.

Irony was everywhere last night. – Hey, I wonder if Alexandria Ocasio Cortez and her fellow raging anti-semites Rashida Tlaib and Ilhan Omar were comfortable with the fact that their white-on-blue attire just happened to reflect the colors of the flag of … wait for it…ISRAEL.

Ooops.

Irony was everywhere last night, Part II. – This photo is perfect and really needs no explanation in light of recent events:

 

Man, the #Fakenews outlets have a big job of turning public opinion around today… – Viewer reaction polls taken in the wake of the speech by CBS News and CNN showed that viewers approved of the President’s message by 76% and 59%, respectively. You can bet the DNC/fake news media joint talking points monkeys had a sleepless night last night.

Like Morning Mika once said, telling people what to think isn’t President Trump’s job, it’s the fake news media’s job.

Fauxcahontas Update! – If you thought Senator Little Mouth Always Running had weathered her Fake Indian storm and lived to tell about it, think again.

Below is her application to be admitted to the State Bar of Texas, which she filed in 1986, claiming her “race” to be “American Indian.” This little bit of fraud was tweeted out by Washington Post reporter Amy Gardner about an hour and a half before the President began his speech last night. No wonder our fake Indian princess had such a concerned look on her face throughout the evening:

Oof.

The most amazing part of this is that the Washington Post actually released this latest piece of Warren fraud rather than sitting on it like they normally do for their favored Democrats. This can only mean that the Democrat Party/Fake news media Axis of Disinformation has decided that Fauxcahontas is a sure loser in 2020 and wants her gone.

While that’s a noble goal, the problem for the American people is she’ll just be replaced by some other outright fraud like Kamala Harris or Irish Bob O’Rourke.

But hey, this is the Democrats we’re talking about here, so of course that will be the case.

That is all.

The New Democrat/Media Narrative: Congress Must Take Up Mueller’s Witch Hunt

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

This is going to become hard to keep up with. – When the Republican candidates for the presidency assembled for their first debate in the summer of 2015, there were 17 of them. At the rate the Democrats are going so far this year, they will exceed that number by Valentine’s Day.

Hawaii Representative Tulsi Gabbard told communist CNN talk show host Van Jones that she plans to toss her lei into the ring within the next week. As I mentioned yesterday, San Antonio politician Julian Castro will be making his formal announcement today, joining Congressman John Delaney of Maryland as the first two formally-declared candidates. And of course, Fauxcahontas announced last week that she’s formed an exploratory committee, which means she’s running too.

So, Ms. Gabbard will make it four, and she’s actually the most interesting of the bunch.  She’s only 37 years old, but has been making news for years in her congressional role as a rare contrarian within the Democrat congressional caucus. Don’t get me wrong, she’s a socialist like all the rest of them, but she’s at least fairly intelligent about it and is not shy about calling out her party’s own excesses when she sees them. She has courage, in other words, and that is a terribly rare thing in a Democrat politician.

Gabbard most recently made news earlier this week when she called out dimwitted Hawaii Senator Mazie Hirono and California Senator Kamala Harris for the anti-Catholic bigotry the two exhibited recently in their roles on the Senate Judiciary Committee.  Gabbard was also frequently critical of the Obama Administration and of Hillary Clinton during her own disastrous run for the presidency.

One interesting thing Gabbard’s candidacy will do is without question give the Democrat field the broadest range of age in American history.  Think about it:  From Silent Generation Bernie Sanders at 77 to Millennial Tulsi Gabbard at 37, the Democrat field will span four full generations and 40 years. That is unprecedented.

But bottom line, Gabbard is far too intelligent, honest and interesting to ever win the Democrat Party’s presidential nomination, but she could set herself up for a cabinet position in some future Democrat administration by raising her public profile with a primary run.

Actual exchange at a Trump press availability on Friday afternoon:

TRUMP: Good job yesterday, I appreciate your sales pitch.

ACOSTA: I didn’t see any danger on the border Mr. President.

TRUMP: That’s because we had a wall.

Oof. And that’s why Donald Trump is President.

The fake media starts a new narrative using a most reliable source. – It didn’t get a ton of notice, but early Thursday morning, leftist rag Mother Jones put up a column by Democrat activist/pretend journalist David Corn titled “The Myth of the Mueller Report.” Corn, reading the handwriting on the wall, spends 1,000 words or so detailing the fact that Special Counsel Robert Mueller is under no obligation to produce any sort of public report, or any report at all that does anything other than detail the various indictments of ham sandwiches he’s secured over the past 20 months, and submit it confidentially to whomever happens to be serving as attorney general at the time.

The handwriting on the wall to which I refer is all the obvious signals that, despite all the hysteria and false reporting in our fake news media, Mueller has been slowly winding his operation down since last August and is likely to close up shop and issue whatever final report he’s going to issue shortly after the confirmation of new Attorney General William Barr is confirmed by the Senate.

The other piece of handwriting that’s all over our national reading wall  is that, along about that same time, DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz will be issuing his final report – at long last – on all the rampant abuse of the FISA system that took place during most of 2016 and into 2017. That report will not be good for Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, and everyone knows it, including Mr. Barr. That’s why we saw the news early this week that the oily Mr. Rosenstein will be leaving his own office right around the same time these other major events are taking place.

All of this is horrible news for the Democrats and their  media agents who, like Corn and Mother Jones, have been faithfully pushing the “Russia Collusion” fantasy on behalf of the Democrats for the last 26 months. They are desperate to keep the fantasy alive and need another vehicle for doing that once the Mueller witch hunt closes up shop.

Enter the new Democrat majority in the House of Representatives, and the concluding logic in Corn’s piece, which reads as follows:

Providing the citizenry a complete account of the Trump-Russia scandal is actually the responsibility of Congress.

And there it is: The roadmap for media justification of the endless series of kangaroo-court hearings the Democrats are going to conduct through various congressional committees for the next two years. 20+ months of a Special Counsel witch hunt aren’t going to deliver the Democrats their unicorn, so it is now up to Congress to spend the next 24 months pounding the public with the same nonsense.

You can expect to see Corn’s “logic” echoed throughout the fake news media’s editorial pages and talking head panels in the coming weeks and months.  Because this is the narrative, and pounding home the narrative is all our fake news media does anymore.

That is all.

Mitt Romney: Hillary Clinton in a Brooks Brothers Suit

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Replacing one flake with another. – Those of you who were despairing over the retirement of Jeff Flake from the U.S. Senate (yes, all three of you) had reason to cheer on Tuesday, because a white RINO knight rode in to fill the void.

His name is Mitt. He hails from Utah. He is a RINO like no other RINO – the only living RINO who ran such a feckless presidential campaign that he ensured a second term in office for America’s Worst Mistake, Barack Hussein Obama.

Combining all the most detestable traits of the RINO community – disloyalty, venality, massive hubris and an unending willingness to consort with the enemy for self-aggrandizement – Mitt authored a hit piece aimed at President Donald Trump in one of the nation’s foremost anti-Trump fake news organs, the Washington Post. In it, the two-time loooooooooser in presidential politics said that Mr. Trump “has not risen to the mantle of the office.” Hashtag, irony.

Romney went on to signal that he will be every bit as disloyal to the GOP cause as was his philosophical doppelganger, Flake: “I will support policies that I believe are in the best interest of the country and my state, and oppose those that are not.” In RINO-speak, this means that he will be just another shill for the open borders policies favored by the Wall Street Journal and Chamber of Commerce, and a supporter of U.S. involvement in unending civil wars in a variety of nations across the Middle East and Africa. Bill Kristol and Jonah Goldberg will be thrilled.

Mind you, Romney was thrilled to have Donald Trump’s endorsement during his failed presidential run in 2012, and was just fine with having a widely-publicized private dinner with then-President Elect Trump in his quest to gain the appointment as Secretary of State. Classically typical of any RINO, Romney’s “principles” are extremely malleable.

So, no surprises here – same old Mitt Romney. If you liked Mitt in 2012, you will absolutely love him in 2019, as he becomes a safe 48th vote in the Senate on key issues for the Democrat Party. As one writer headlined, “Mitt Romney Just Joined the Resistance.” He’s Hillary Clinton in a Brooks Brothers suit.

Refusing to take the bait… – This morning, President Donald Trump (I never tire of typing those three glorious words) had a policy-focused response to Romney’s taunt:

Fauxcahontas has a clear [war]path to the Democrat nomination. – The fake Indian senator from Massachusetts chose New Year’s Day to formally announce her run for the presidency, informing her mostly wealthy, white-bread supporters that she has formed an exploratory committee in that regard. She will now begin the process of raising big wampum for her campaign, including travels to early primary states like Iowa and New Hampshire where she will smoke the peace pipe around many campfires with her party’s local chiefs and high muckety-mucks.

Her campaign got off to a very Michael-Dukakis-riding-in-a-tank start with the release of the video below, which includes a tense hug with her husband, a struggle to pop the top on a bottle of beer, and some cooking, all very odd signals for a supposed leftwing feminist to be sending:

If you look closely, you might also notice what appears for all the world to be a figurine of “Sambo” atop the cabinet directly behind the civil rights crusader’s head. You seriously cannot make this stuff up.

Well, that’s one way to put it…

Man, I thought she was dead…

No matter how absurdly Mitt Romney behaves, he can never out-do this guy…

This is how CNN entertained its viewers on New Year’s Eve…

What a way to start the year, huh?

That is all.

ObamaCare’s On-Again Off-Again Constitutionality Is Off-Again, For Now

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Huh. Guess congress did something about ObamaCare after all. –  The stain on our nation’s healthcare system that is ObamaCare was declared unconstitutional by a federal judge in Texas on Friday, and you’ll never guess why.

Remember last year, when we were all complaining that the Republican congress had failed to do anything effective to get rid of the atrocity? Remember when John McCain proudly cast the deciding vote in the dead of night, sneering in his belief that he had, in his final major act as a senator, saddled the nation with this economy killing nightmare into perpetuity?

Yeah, it turns out that McCain and everyone else might have been wrong. Judge Reed O’Connor – who everyone in our fake news media will be labeling as a “conservative judge” or a “right-wing judge” today, even though they never label any Obama appointee properly as a “Marxist judge” or “Alynskyite judge” – ruled that Obamacare was rendered unconstitutional last year when congress repealed the individual mandate tax contained within it.

This of course is the “tax” that Chief Justice John Roberts ruled really was a tax – even though Obama and every other Democrat on earth denied it was a tax, and the law itself did not call it a tax – when he twisted himself into tight little pretzels of illogic in declaring the law to be “constitutional” back in 2012. Yeah, that “tax”.

Judge O’Connor, in a suit brought by Texas and 19 other states, ruled on Friday that this “tax”  – which penalized anyone who didn’t purchase healthcare ‘insurance’ under Obamacare in order to subsidize the entire house of cards – was in fact the foundation of the entire house of cards. The states had argued that the individual mandate was “non-severable” from the remainder of the ObamaCare law, and the judge agreed.

President Trump got all excited when he heard of the decision and issued the following premature tweet:

The problem is that Judge O’Connor’s decision will be immediately appealed by the 14 states who argued in favor of ObamaCare, and thus will not become effective anytime soon, if it ever does. Justice Roberts, after all, has already demonstrated he is willing to go to any lengths of illogic to uphold the atrocity, and there are still 4 leftist clods on the court who will do or say anything to promote their own personal social views.

Still, it was fun to wake up this morning to the news that John McCain’s final sneering middle finger act to the rest of us has at least temporarily been invalidated.

It’s been a great week for goodbyes. – Man, getting rid of Jeff Flake and The Weekly Standard all in one week feels like Christmas come early! Toss Claire McCaskill into the mix, and it’s time to strike up “Joy to the World”.

Yes, friends, the execrable cretin Bill Kristol announced late Friday that the formerly conservative but now rankly liberal #NeverTrump publication, The Weekly Standard, would go out of business after it publishes its final issue on Monday. To that, I only have this to say:

Ok, I have one more thing to say. The sad part of this is that, while Kristol and fellow editor Stephen Hayes will be just fine in this deal, no doubt getting a massive severance deal and retaining their contributor agreements with various cable networks (Kristol has long been one of CNN’s favorite pet fake conservatives), the rest of the magazine’s staff is going to get royally screwed right before Christmas.

Still, the shutting of this rag is no loss to conservatism, no loss to the GOP and no loss to the country. It just is.

Wait, what? Huh? Come again? – Liberals are having such a hard damn time labeling themselves these days that it’s hard to keep up.  Take yesterday as examples:

First, Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth “Little Mouth Always Running” Warren gave a speech on Friday in which she outright declared that “I am not a person of color.” Holy crap. Wasn’t it just a couple of months ago that this congenitally dishonest hack was taking DNA tests, declaring that, because one of them found that she was 1/1024th (maybe) “native American” that she WAS a “person of color?”

Make up your mind, lady.

As if that’s not confusing enough, then you have some guy named Jonathan Rauch, who is apparently himself a gay man, writing a piece at the ultra-liberal rag The Atlantic declaring that “it’s time to take the ‘LGBT’ out of ‘LGBTQ'”.  I swear I do not make this stuff up. Here is a part of Rauch’s reasoning, which I must directly quote in order to not be personally accused of being a bigot:

“As activists and theorists sought to cover every base, they recognized asexuality and intersexuality and various other identities by coining LGBTQIAA+, LGBTTIQQ2SA, and other telescoping designations. Lately LGBTQ seems to have become the norm, on the assumption that Q, for queer, can stand in for all the rest.”

and this…

“If you like, you can think of it as short for queer. Or, if you don’t like, just Q. Give it any etymology you wish. Regardless, the term would be understood to encompass sexual minorities of all stripes. When we speak of ourselves as individuals, we would use gay or lesbian or transgender or whatever applies. When we need a blanket term, we would simply call ourselves Q. As in: the Q population and Q equalityQ is simple and inclusive, and carries minimal baggage. When we speak of Q equality, we are saying that discrimination against sexual minorities—or for that matter sexual majorities—is not the American way.”

That’s right: After decades of gay rights activists telling the world that the use of the word “queer” is in fact a bigoted slur (which it is), we now have a prominent gay “journalist” advocating that everyone go back to using the letter “Q” – which he overtly admits stands for the word “queer” – to refer to anyone in the gay community.

I can’t even.

That is all.

Elizabeth Warren’s Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

This is what the Creepy Porn Lawyer calls a “moral victory.” – Monday was not a good day for Creepy Porn Lawyers, specifically, the nation’s most infamous Creepy Porn Lawyer, Michael Avenatti.  You know, the guy who thinks he’s going to be the Democrat Party’s presidential nominee in 2020.  Don’t laugh – he’s such an outright fraud that he just might get there, because we all know how Democrat voters love to nominate frauds for the presidency.  Think about it.

Yesterday, fresh off of making a national laughingstock of himself for putting forward a literal crazy woman who accused Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of running a punch-spiking, girl-drugging, serial gang rape operation while he was in high school back in the 1970s, the Creepy Porn Lawyer became a laughingstock once again as a federal judge dismissed Stormy Daniels’ defamation lawsuit against President Donald Trump.  Not only did the judge throw the creepy case out of his court, he also ruled that the porn star must reimburse President Trump for his legal fees in the case!  I swear I don’t make this stuff up.

For his part, Avenatti responded to the judge’s decision like that little kid on the elementary school playground who, after you beat him in another game of marbles, always kicked the dirt and said “you cheated – I’ll getcha next time!”:

HAH HAH HAH HAH HAH HAH HAH HAH HAH HAH HAH HAH HAH HAH HAH HAH HAH HAH HAH HAH HAH HAH HAH HAH HAH HAH HAH [takes deep breath] HAH HAH HAH HAH HAH HAH HAH HAH HAH HAH HAH HAH HAH HAH HAH HAH HAH HAH !!!!!!

Stop it, you’re killin’ me here, Creepy Porn Lawyer!

But Avenatti wasn’t the only leading Democrat 2020 presidential contestant who had a really, really, really, really bad day on Monday…

For Exhibit B, I give you Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren. – My goodness, I’m not sure anyone planning a run for the presidency – as Fauxcahontas clearly is despite her tepid non-denial denials – has ever suffered a more needless self-inflicted wound than Senator Warren did on Monday.

Obviously obsessed and enraged over President Trump’s frequent taunts about her life-long fraudulent contention that she is a “Native American” based on nothing but “family lore”, the neo-Marxist Senator from Massachusetts engaged in a huge bit of self-immolation as she rolled out a “DNA test” conducted by some flim-flam artist at Stanford University in an effort to prove the lore was in fact true.  The extreme leftist Democrat Party propaganda rag, the Boston Globe, was only too happy to play host to her stunt, advertising Warren’s “proof” with a big front page story in which the paper originally claimed the test, which said that Warren probably had one “Native American” relative as far as 6 to 10 generations back in her lineage, somehow proved she was as much as 1/16th Cherokee.

Oops.

A few hours later, after no doubt hundreds of readers had called and emailed that having a great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great grandmother who was “Native American” in one’s lineage would in fact make you a tiny fraction of that, the Globe then issued a correction that said that …wait for it…Sen. Warren is in fact 1/1024th “Native American!”  A few hours after that, the paper then issued yet another correction as it desperately tried to make things better for its favorite Senator, now claiming that, ok, well, the test actually means she is somewhere between 1/64th and 1/1024th “Native American,” as if that made everything all better.

It didn’t.  The damage was already done by then, and it turns out the “test” in question didn’t even use a single sample of actual “Native American” DNA as a point of comparison.

See, this guy at Stanford doesn’t actually have any real “Native American” DNA samples to use, so instead he uses samples from people in places like Colombia, Peru and other points in South America, on the theory that hey, all them Indians in the Western Hemisphere are the same, right?  Holy cow!

Thus, what this “test” actually “proves” – assuming it proves anything at all – is that somewhere way, way, waaaaayyyyyyy back in her family lineage, Senator Little Mouth Always Running had one ancestor who might, maybe, have been Colombian, Peruvian or some sort of American Indian but nobody really knows for sure.  It was on this basis, and with this knowledge aforethought that Sen. Lieawatha actually thought she was declaring victory here.

It all became a little too much for the Cherokee Nation, sick of Sen. Faucahontas’s constant, obviously fraudulent efforts to appropriate the heritage of which real Cherokees are so proud and over which so many have died.  Early in the afternoon, the Nation issued the following statement lambasting Sen. Warren and this “test”:

“A DNA test is useless to determine tribal citizenship. Current DNA tests do not even distinguish whether a person’s ancestors were indigenous to North or South America. Sovereign tribal nations set their own legal requirements for citizenship, and while DNA tests can be used to determine lineage, such as paternity to an individual, it is not evidence for tribal affiliation. Using a DNA test to lay claim to any connection to the Cherokee Nation or any tribal nation, even vaguely, is inappropriate and wrong. It makes a mockery out of DNA tests and its legitimate uses while also dishonoring legitimate tribal governments and their citizens, whose ancestors are well documented and whose heritage is prove. Senator Warren is undermining tribal interests with her continued claims of tribal heritage.”

Ouch.  Devastating.

Meanwhile, as the day went on, the fake news media became increasingly desperate in its efforts to provide cover for its favorite fake Indian, and focused on President Trump’s taunt from last year in which he said he’d give $1 million to Warren’s favorite charity if she could prove she was indeed an Indian.  One nitwit fake reporter even questioned the President about it as he toured the devastation left behind by Hurricane Michael in Florida.  Mr. Trump, smiling, responded hilariously, saying “What is it, 1/1000th?  I’ll only do it if I can test her personally.  That will not be something I enjoy doing either.”

So, just so everyone is clear here:  Yesterday, President Donald Trump (I never tire of typing those three glorious words) succeeded in inducing a leading contender for the Democrat 2020 presidential nomination to a) take a damn DNA test at her own expense, b) declare victory over having been sort of “proven” to be 1/1024th right, and c) get taken down in a brutal way by the Cherokee Nation for her troubles.

That, my friends, is #WINNING.

That is all.

Fake Religions, Fake Indians and Fake Republicans

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

The Church of Scientology is getting its own TV channel.  Yay!  The favored fake religion of Hollywood’s mindless nitwits announced over the weekend that it will begin rolling out content today on Apple TV, Roku and DirectTV.  And guess what?  I have DirecTV at my home, so I’ll get to watch it for you and give you a review!  Ok, just kidding – the little wifey and I are in the middle of a 7-season marathon of Homeland, so there will be no time at all for Scientology TV.  No word on what the new programming on the new channel will consist of, but it’s a very safe bet that a bunch of really bad flicks by Tom Cruise and John Travolta will be prominently featured in the mix.

Speaking of outright frauds, Elizabeth Warren was challenged on several Sunday morning fake news programs to just take a DNA test and put this whole fake Indian thing to bed.  Just spit into a cup, seal it up, mail it in to that online DNA testing service, and two weeks later it will all be over.  And hey, the chances are really, really good that the results she gets back are going to claim she has some small percentage of Indian blood in her, because that’s what that service does:  It tells everyone that they come from pretty much everywhere.

But oh, no, not Fauxcahontas.  She’s not having any of that.  She is so certain of her Indian blood because of “family lore” and all, that she just doesn’t need to have any proof.  Of course, the truth is most likely that the shameless phony has been lying about it all these years and she’s scared to death that she will be the 1 in 100 people who get results back denying that she has any Indian DNA at all.

The fake Indian Senator from Massachusetts also stated definitely, at least half a dozen times, that “I am not running for president” when asked by her Sunday interviewers.  Given her history, we can take this to be a definitive statement that she is indeed planning to run for the Democrat nomination in 2020.

Boy, that Democrat presidential field is just going to be chock full of fakes, phonies and frauds in two years.  In addition to the fakest Indian in America, President Trump will also be challenged by a field that will include 80 year-old commie Bernie Sanders, 77 year-old hair implant poster child, serial woman groper and nude swimmer Joe Biden, the latest reboot of the Pantsuit Princess, the completely deranged Corey Booker, the even more completely deranged Chicago congressman Luis Gutierrez, the amazingly unaccomplished Kamala Harris, and Oprah.  No word if Bill Nye the fake science guy will join the fun, but hey, he certainly has the career fraud qualifications down pat, so why not?

In case you missed it, the Democrat Party took a first step towards reducing the number of “super delegates” to its 2020 convention over the weekend, a move that will likely end up reducing their numbers by about half.  This will make it a little tougher for the Coughing Crook to rig the nominating process again in 2020 like she and Debbie Wasserman Schulz and the DNC did in 2016.  So we can expect even more fakes, phones, frauds and freaks to line up in the coming months to pursue the party’s nomination, now that there might be a 40% chance the Clintons won’t rig the thing again.

Speaking of fakes, phonies and frauds, RINO Senator Jeff Flake came to Chuck Todd’s defense on NBC’s “Meet the Press” on Sunday, after President Trump had referred to the show’s host as a “sleepy sonofabitch” during his Saturday rally in Pittsburgh.  The terminally whiny Sen. Flake actually blamed President Trump’s calling out of the fake news media in the U.S. as causing the arrests of journalists in other countries.  No, really, that’s what he said:

“We have a record number of journalists being jailed overseas, some on false news charges, echoing the phrases he uses. I don’t think it’s a responsible thing to do. I really don’t.”

First of all, we don’t have a “record number” of journalists being jailed overseas.  It’s pretty likely that the “record” for that particular exercise was established during the Bolshevik revolution in Russia a century ago.  Second, tin pot dictators and communist thugs all over the world have been arresting journalists they don’t like all throughout human history, so claiming this is something that just started when Donald Trump took office 14 months ago is more dishonest than any claim Elizabeth Warren has ever made about her fake Indian ancestry.

Third, note to “Meet the Press”:  Jeff Flake has a  public approval rating in his own home state that consistently hovers below 20%.  Nobody cares what Jeff Flake thinks or says.  If you’re going to have a token fake Republican show up on your program, why not invite Lindsey Graham or Susan Collins?  They at least could win an election in their own state if they had to run again today.

Just another weekend of fakes, phones and frauds parading across our TV screens America.

That Time Poor Little Jimmy Was Bullied By Mean Ol’ Sarah

  • Alabama GOP Senate Candidate Roy Moore got his head handed to him Tuesday, losing the vote to Democrat Doug Jones by more than 21,000 votes in the final count.  Despite that margin, Moore, as of this writing early Wednesday morning, is still refusing to concede victory, telling his supporters they need to let God sort this all out.  Um, Judge, to the extent God cared about what happened in your election, he’s probably already done all the sorting he’s planning to do.  Show just a little grace here, like your Bible teaches you to do.
  • The editorial board for USA Today has obviously decided it wants its fading platform to join the grand pantheon of fake news organizations.  After President Donald Trump (I never tire of typing those three words) responded to Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand’s call for his resignation with a tweet that says that the Democrat Senator “would come to my office “begging” for campaign contributions not so long ago (and would do anything for them),” the USA ed board responded with an insane op/ed that accused the President of calling the Senator “a whore.”  No, guys, he called her a politician.  Try to keep up here.
  • The President has quite often made that exact same reference to Democrat politicians – mainly New Yorkers like Chuck Schumer – who, when Trump was a private citizen, used to come to his office and beg for money in return for whatever favors Trump wanted them to do for him.  There is really no mystery at all what the President was saying in that tweet, and, as stellar White House Spokesman Sarah Huckabee Sanders told fake reporter April Ryan at Tuesday’s press briefing, only those with their mind in the gutter would take the tweet to be a sexual reference.  Of course, as we have discovered in the past two months with all the revelations about liberals in politics, entertainment and the fake news media being engaged in rampant sexual abuse at the workplace, having their minds in the gutter is apparently where Democrat politicians and fake reporters live 24 hours a day.
  • Never to be outdone, Senator Fauxcahontas Warren weighed in by issuing a statement accusing the President of “slut-shaming” Senator Gillibrand with his tweet.  This led to the fake Indian from Massachusetts being utterly ridiculed in the social media space by Millennials who understand that being “slut-shamed” means the person who is the target has been engaging in slutty behavior, an accusation to which Sen. Gillibrand just might take offense.  Obviously, Senator Heap Big Running Mouth needs to brush up on her urban slang dictionary before wading into controversies such as this in the future.
  • Speaking of Sarah Huckabee Sanders and fake reporters, the fakest White House Reporter of them all, CNN’s Little Jimmy Acosta, hilariously accused Ms. Sanders of being a mean ol’ bully to him on Tuesday.  When the President came out to make a statement to a limited number of White House reporters at what is called a “pool spray” (wonder if April Ryan thinks that’s some sort of sexual reference, too), Little Jimmy claims Sanders came to him beforehand and warned him that his access to future such “sprays” would be limited if, as is his grandstanding habit, he shouted out a question to the President.  Little Jimmy, who has been desperately trying to get a hosting gig on CNN by making a constant ass of himself at the White House, predictably shouted out his question, then bravely tweeted out “Sorry, Sarah – we will not be intimidated.”
  • Now, none of this would be remotely noteworthy were it not for the reality that reporters are very often told that “sprays” such as this are not open to questions, and that, for the past 8 years, whenever the assembled White House press corps was given that instruction by the Obama spokesman, they wagged their tails and panted like the good little lapdogs they were, and then went out and regurgitated whatever Obama had had to say without further comment.  Little Jimmy was maybe the most obedient lapdog among them, though he had plenty of competition.
  • Let’s also remember that, whenever His Royal Oneness Obama did lower himself to take a few questions from Little Jimmy and his gang, the questions asked by these intrepid fake journalists were things like “How ya doin’ today?”, or “What is the very, very best thing about the job you do?”, or “Why are you just so darn wonderful?”
  • After eight years of that on-the-job failure, for Little Jimmy now to lose all sense of proper decorum at the White House or of his place in the world because the people elected a President he personally hates, and whine about being “bullied” is almost too pathetic for words.  But there, I found them.

Just another day in poor Little Jimmy’s being bullied by mean ol’ Sarah America.

That is all.

The Democrat/Media Narrative From Tuesday’s Elections Jumps The Gun On Reality

Today’s Campaign Update 

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

  • The remake of “Murder on the Orient Express” opens in theaters across America today, because somebody in Hollywood thought the American public just could not live without another tired remake of another tired concept movie.  Can another tired remake of “Death on the Nile” or “Clue” be far behind?  That is, if producers can find any actors who haven’t been taken down by harassment or pedophilia scandal to star in them.
  • Speaking of Hollywood scandals, we have a story out today that an actress named Allison Mack – who I’ve never heard of, but who acted in a TV series called “Smallville” – has spent her spare time the past few years recruiting as many as 25 women into a slave cult.  I swear I don’t make this stuff up.  Not to downplay the ogre-like behavior of Harvey Weinstein or Kevin Spacey, but dang, this little gal has really gone the extra mile into the world of depravity, hasn’t she?  I don’t even want to see how some other Hollywood figure will top this one, but can there be any doubt that someone soon will?
  • And speaking of depraved behavior, the Democrats and their agents in the fake news media have very predictably decided to try to convince the public that Tuesday’s election results somehow mean that the beleaguered, disorganized and leaderless Democrat Party is once again ascendant, and will inevitably take over both houses of congress in 2018, impeach President Donald Trump (I never get tired of typing those three words) and elect some Communist like Bernie Sanders or Fauxcahontas in 2020.  The Democrat/Fake media joint talking points are all extrapolated from the Democrats regaining the governorship in very Democrat-dominated New Jersey, holding the governorship in pretty decidedly Democrat-dominated Virginia, and voters in the very Blue state of Maine voting to expand Medicaid in that state.  Alrighty then.
  • Look, there is no denying that Tuesday was indeed a bad day for the GOP.  But let’s be honest here, the landscape of this particular election day was heavily tilted in the Democrats’ favor.  Chris Christie, the out-going Governor of New Jersey, had basically doomed the chances of any Republican holding onto that office with his piggish behavior in office over the last two years.  There was just no chance it was going to happen.
  • In Maine, the Democrats were successful in convincing voters that expanding Medicaid would be some sort of solution to the rapidly rising healthcare insurance premiums caused by the imploding Obamacare system.  Watch what happens in 2018 and 2020, after voters figure out that that was just another in a very long line of Democrat lies about their healthcare system.  Then again, probably nothing much will happen, since the vast majority of Democrat voters are little more than sheep who will just bite on whatever batch of false talking points the Democrat Party rolls out next.
  • But the big focus by the fake news media has been on Virginia, where establishment Republican Ed Gillespie lost to Democrat Ralph Northam by almost 9% of the vote, a whole 3% more than the margin the Coughing Crook ran up over Mr. Trump in 2016.   It is that 3% difference that the Democrat/Fake media axis have seized upon as clear proof that voters all over the country have turned on President Trump and that the Democrats will once again become the ruling party in Washington after the 2018 elections.
  • This “analysis”, such as it is, ignores several things:  First, Gillespie ran away from President Trump in his campaign, choosing instead to run as a sort of Jeb! Bush mushy RINO.  That obviously did not play well with the state’s Republican base, and likely dampened voter turnout for the GOP on a rainy election day that would have normally played to the Republicans’ advantage.
  • Second, Jill Vogel, the GOP candidate for Lieutenant Governor who ran her campaign based on Trump’s issues of law enforcement and secure borders, lost by exactly the 6 point margin that the President lost by a year ago.  Had Gillespie’s milquetoast campaign not turned off so many voters, she would likely have had a real shot at winning.
  • Third, the media-promoted thought that the leaderless and rudderless Democrat Party has suddenly been transformed into an electoral juggernaut that is going to just steamroll back into  power 12 months from now deserves no serious consideration.  The Democrats remain in complete disarray, their National Committee cannot raise money, and the faces of their national party remain the thoroughly toxic Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi.
  • Fourth, while the playing field of Virginia, New Jersey and Maine this past Tuesday was heavily stacked in the Democrats’ favor, that will not be the case in 2018.  Twelve months from now, the Democrats will be defending 25 of 34 Senate seats up for re-election, including 10 in states where the President won by double-digit margins in 2016, and the number of truly vulnerable GOP house seats remains at a very low level.
  • The Republicans do remain vulnerable heading into the mid-terms, however, mainly due to the complete lack of getting anything important done in the U.S. Senate.  A continued failure by the GOP majority there to act on Obamacare, tax reform and other issues important to the party’s base voters could end up creating a wave election for the Democrats next year.
  • But that is far from the fait accompli that is being currently promoted by the Democrat/Fake media propaganda axis.  A year is forever in politics and the Republicans are really good at screwing things up, but projecting last Tuesday’s results into a theme that they already have is just another false narrative from the Usual Suspects.

Just another day in Democrat/Fake media propaganda axis America.

That is all.

The GOPe’s Next Act: Pretending To Want Tax Reform

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

  • Well, you know it’s a slow news day in Donald Trump’s America when the biggest story is the introduction by Republicans congress of their long-awaited tax reform bill.  The bill has been ready for at least six months, but true to their goal of not getting a damn thing done during this calendar year, the GOP congressional leadership waited until the end of September to introduce it.
  • This late introduction date – for which there really is no justification at all – naturally produced grumbling among some members of the conservative Freedom Caucus about the “aggressive time frame” left in the year to get such a massive reform of the IRS tax code done.  So, the stage is already set for the December press conference of Paul Ryan and Mitch McConnell telling everyone that they just ran out of time this year, but don’t worry, they’ll promise to come back in 2018 and really, truly get the thing done.  Yeah, sure, just like Obamacare, right?
  • Through a contraction of the various tax rates and a doubling of the standard deduction, everyone gets a bit of a tax break in this plan, except for those making more than $400,000 per year, who get stuck with an actual tax surcharge.  Naturally, Democrats rushed to the microphones and Twitter and Facebook to squeal that the plan is…wait for it…wait for it…A TAX CUT FOR THE WEALTHY!  I swear I don’t make this stuff up.
  • Of course, in Democrat “logic”, such as it exists, this is true, since the Democrats consider anyone who makes more than about $100,000 per year to be “wealthy”.  Given that the goal of the plan is to get more money into the hands of those in the lower and middle class, people making between $100,000 and $400,00 do get a tax cut under the plan.  Thus, the whole “tax cut for the wealthy” rhetoric from the party of demagoguery.
  • The plan would also lower the tax rate for – gasp! – evil corporations in the hope of stimulating the economy.   Man, the Democrats haven’t even gotten started demonizing that aspect of the proposal.  Nevermind that the U.S. has by far the highest corporate tax rate of any developed country, costing our country millions of potential jobs that now simply go overseas, lowering tax rates for evil corporations presents Fauxcahontas and Chuck Schumer and Bernie Sanders with prime demagoguery opportunities, and that is not something they will meekly pass up.
  • So, it’s going to be a long fall and winter filled with hyper-partisan rancor.  There is nothing progressives hate more than a healthy, growing economy.  I’m not kidding.  If you think otherwise, you don’t understand progressives.
  • There can be no doubt the GOP proposal would indeed stimulate economic growth in a very big way.  The key stimulus-producing provision is one that would allow businesses of all kinds to deduct most capital costs during the tax year in which they are incurred.  Currently, such costs must be recovered by depreciating them over 5 to 30 years, depending on the asset that is being depreciated.
  • President Trump has often talked about wanting to pass his own economic stimulus package. Well, there is really no need for a separate stimulus bill if congress were to pass this one.  The ability to deduct capital costs would be a stimulus plan in and of itself, and unlike the Obama stimulus, which was basically wasted on expanding government employment and wasteful programs, it would stimulate real infrastructure expansion, and create millions of real, private sector jobs.
  • So of course the Democrats hate it.  They hate anything that would grow the private sector, especially at a time when the government sector is being systematically reduced by a Republican administration.
  • But the dirty little secret is that the establishment Republicans really don’t want to pass this bill, either, which is why they’ve waited so late to introduce it.  The positive side is that the President does want it, and he won’t be shy about publicly pounding on Democrats and Republicans who work to kill it.
  • Just as we have seen President Trump reveal the Democrats and their progressive voters to be perfectly fine with NFL players disrespecting the national anthem and American flag this week, in the coming weeks we will see him speak very frankly about the real reasons why the Democrats and recalcitrant Republican swamp creatures don’t want to pass a meaningful tax bill.
  • It will be a target-rich environment for verbal kill shots, and we all know how the President loves that.

Just another day in Donald Trump’s America.

The Democrat Party’s Real Problems For 2018 Are Its Own Ugly, Sordid Faces

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

  • If you want proof that Republicans and Democrats live in two completely different sets of reality, all you need to do is go read the piece linked here summarizing a new Gallup survey regarding Americans’ trust in the fake news media.  According to Gallup – whose results admittedly must always be called into question since it refuses to publicly release the sampling methods behind its polling – fully 72% of Democrats have “a great deal/fair amount of trust and confidence” in the accuracy of the country’s fake news media, while just 14% of Republicans and 37% of Independents admit to holding the same view.
  • Let that set in for a moment.  As an example, when President Trump visited Houston in the wake of Hurricane Harvey, he was filmed by all media present interacting with literally hundreds of ordinary people, hugging them, talking to them, coloring pages with their children, helping them load their trucks with supplies, working behind the lunch counter at the shelter, etc.  It was an extraordinary example of presidential leadership and empathy with the common man.  Yet that evening, when CNN and MSNBC both falsely reported that the President had met no one, interacted with no one, and ignored the suffering of those people, Gallup tells us that 72% of the nation’s Democrats believed those reports, despite the video evidence before their own lyin’ eyes.
  • That’s not just a disconnect, that is conscious, intentional exercise in mass self-delusion.  Given that self-described “Democrats” make up about 35% of adults, Gallup’s results indicate that roughly one out of every four adults you come across lives in a complete and total fake media-created fantasy world.  Truly frightening.
  • This brings me to a long piece published in Time on Wednesday, which attempts to analyze how the Democrat Party’s ‘leaders’, such as they are, are trying desperately to get the Party’s act together in preparation for the 2018 mid-term elections and the 2020 presidential contest.  It’s a decent, if superficial, analysis, focused mainly on the Party’s math problem in terms of how few levers of power it actually controls, its pathetic fundraising efforts, and the conflicts among the Party’s current ‘leaders’ – again, such as they are – over whether to continue trying to attract the independent voters who will make or break their efforts to win races, or just chuck it all and take the Bernie Sanders/Elizabeth Warren turn to the hard left.
  • In other words, the piece is all the standard ‘insider’ stuff written by a standard DC ‘insider’ fake reporter.  It’s all the sort of stuff that actually mattered in the days before the 2016 campaign and President Donald Trump, but now really just doesn’t get to the heart of the matter and which betrays a complete lack of real understanding of what is going on in the 95% of the country that lies outside of the nation’s major media centers.
  • Here’s the reality for the Democrat Party:  The Party has to completely change the faces that represent it in order to have any chance at all to regain real levers of power through the electoral process.  And that is a process of change that will take years, not weeks or months, to achieve.
  • The faces of the Democrat Party today are a) Corruption (Hillary Clinton), b) Commies (Bernie Sanders), c) fraud (Elizabeth “Fauxcahontas” Warren), d) open borders radicalism (DNC leaders), e) dishonesty and incompetence (Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer) and f) thuggery (Antifa, Black Lives Matter, and other Soros-supported civil unrest groups).  If they’re smart (always an open question, I admit), Republican candidates in 2018 and 2020 won’t be spending their time and money running against their nominal Democrat opponents, they will be spending most of their time and money running against all these ugly, grossly unpopular faces of the Democrat Party as a whole.
  • Democrat candidates for office can talk all they want to about all the “free stuff” they plan to hand out to anyone who votes for them, but when the face of your Party is San Fran Nan, or black-masked thugs who spend their time violently assaulting political opponents and tossing bags filled with urine at policemen, those promises of “free stuff” are going to largely fall on deaf ears.  Time talks about Democrat efforts to turn 24 currently-GOP congressional seats to their advantage in order to regain a majority in the House of Representatives.  Time doesn’t really talk about how inevitably leftwing Democrat candidates are going to convince moderate and conservative voters in these “flyover country” districts to vote for them when the GOP incumbents are running ad after ad featuring the Commie, the Most Corrupt Woman in America, or video of town squares being burned by the armed “Resistance” wing of the Democrat Party.
  • As we’ve seen in this year’s special elections, the GOP was able to retain all five congressional seats in play, even when its candidates were weak or damaged, mainly by simply running ads featuring the stumbling, bumbling, doddering Nancy Pelosi.  They haven’t even gotten around to running ads airing all the glowing, supportive statements about Antifa and Black Lives Matter coming from the mouths of Pelosi, Schumer, Obama, Clinton, Sanders and Warren, complete with video of Berkeley or St. Louis burning in the background.
  • This is the Democrats’ real problem for 2018 and 2020, and the foreseeable future beyond.  We can count on all the “experts” in DC and New York to completely miss it, but it’s real, and there is no apparent solution to it.  Regardless of how poorly the Republicans perform in their congressional efforts, their saving grace is likely to be the fact that they get to run for re-election against the ugly, sordid faces of the Democrat Party.

Just another day in Donald Trump’s America.

That is all.
