A Rash of Glorious WINNING To End The Week

So much winning, you’ll get tired of winning, right? No? Yeah, me either.

Gosh, how many can one guy win? – President Donald Trump was nominated for a second Nobel Peace Prize Friday morning for his work to bring peace between Kosovo and Serbia.

From a report at the New York Post:

WASHINGTON — President Trump has been nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize for a second time this week — this time for brokering a historic peace deal between Serbia and breakaway republic Kosovo.

In a Friday morning tweet, Magnus Jacobsson, a member of the Swedish Parliament, announced he was nominating the Trump administration and the two European nations for their “joint work for peace and economic development, through the cooperation agreement signed in the White House.”

“Trade and communications are important building blocks for peace,” Jacobsson wrote, sharing his letter to the Nobel Committee.

On Wednesday, the president was nominated for the prestigious award by a member of the Norwegian Parliament for helping broker a peace deal between Israel and the United Arab Emirates.

Democrats and their toadies in the corrupt news media were naturally horrified at this turn of events, and no doubt will be furiously lobbying their globalist friends on the Nobel committee to vote to deny the Bad Orange man this prize. Because that is just how petty and depraved these people truly are.

Incidentially, the only effort any Democrat president over the last 30 years made to reconcile Kosovo and Serbia came in 1996, when Bill Clinton attempted to bomb both nations back into the stone age. The military/industrial complex, the generals, Bill Kristol and John McCain all preferred that method of promoting “peace”.

Speaking of peace… – Peace is breaking out all over the Middle East as well, as officials from Bahrain traveled to the Oval Office to become the second Arab nation to sign onto the same normalization of relations with Israel agreement that the UAE agreed to in late August. That UAE/Israel deal of course secured President Trump’s first Nobel nomination.

From an article at Fox News:

President Trump on Friday announced that Bahrain has agreed to normalize relations with Israel, another diplomatic win for the president coming after a similar agreement with the United Arab Emirates just last month.

“This is really something special, very, very special,” Trump said in the Oval Office, predicting that the region “will become more secure and prosperous” as a result of the diplomatic moves.

“The sand was loaded up with blood, and now you’ll see a lot of that sand will be loaded up with peace,” he said.

According to a formal statement issued by the three countries, they agreed to “the establishment of full diplomatic relations between Israel and the Kingdom of Bahrain.”

“This is a historic breakthrough to further peace in the Middle East. Opening direct dialogue and ties between these two dynamic societies and advanced economies will continue the positive transformation of the Middle East and increase stability, security, and prosperity in the region,” the statement said.

Bahrain becomes latest Arab nation to recognize Israel | Kentucky Today

Those loud noises you heard Friday afternoon were the sounds of the exploding heads of Nancy Pelosi and Meghan McCain.

NFL Ratings are tanking… – The Kansas City Chiefs, led by the amazing Patrick Mahomes, are without any question the most exciting product the BLMFL has to offer these days. But even they could not save the Marxist terrorist-supporting league’s television ratings Thursday evening.

The game between Kansas City and the incredibly boring Houston Texans tanked miserably in the ratings, dropping a whopping 16.1% from the league’s Thursday night opener from a year ago.

From a story at Outkick.com:

The NFL is back, but the story reads ugly. According to Deadline, opening night is looking at 10-year low.

In early numbers, the Chiefs win scored a 5.2 among adults 18-49 and 16.4 million viewers between 8-11 p.m. ET. While the number will adjust some upward later to 11:30 p.m., right now it’s a 16.1% drop. In fast affiliates, last night fell the same 16.1%.

Though the NFL actually kept wokeness to a minimum, football fans didn’t give it the chance. It was too late. Fans heard the chatter, saw what happened with Drew Brees, and knew social justice would take priority pregame. Americans expected the players to kneel, thus they avoided finding out.

This number is alarming. Patrick Mahomes is the best show in sports, the Chiefs are a thrill ride. If that combination can’t get fans to ignore the exhausting nonsense, few games will.

[End]

At this rate, the BLMFL is going to virtue-signal itself into utter oblivion by 2025.

Texans great J.J. Watt said he didn’t understand why the fans booed the players during the pregame:

“The moment of unity I personally thought was good,” Watt said, via NFL Network, after Houston’s 34-20 loss. “I mean the booing during that moment was unfortunate. I don’t fully understand that. There was no flag involved. There was nothing involved other than two teams coming together to show unity.”

Here’s why the fans booed, J.J.:

The entire reason why professional sports became the multi-billion dollar enterprises they all are these days is because they were designed to give working men and women a respite from the problems of the day. People used to be able to look forward to their favorite NFL team providing them with a 3-hour escape from their worries, cares and the political issues of the day. Fans could plan their entire weekends around making sure they had nothing else going on by kickoff so they could kick back, pop the top on a beer and just vege out for 180 minutes.

You and your virtue-signaling peers have now robbed NFL fans of that 3 hours of getting away from it all, and now fans are returning your stupidity and selfishness by cancelling season tickets and finding other things to do while you and your league and your announcers and your sponsors are flooding the airwaves with all of your efforts to brainwash the public into giving a damn what any of you think about racism and politics.

The simple fact of the matter is that the National Football League – like the NBA, MLB and pretty much every other sport – has completely lost sight of the central element that made it such a big deal in the first place. Now that that genie has been let out of the bottle, it’s gonna be really damn hard to shove it back in.

That is all.

Trump Brokers Middle East Peace Deal – Democrats, Media, Terrorists Hardest Hit

Trump brokers Middle East Peace Deal…. – Democrats and Palestinian Terrorists Hardest Hit.

This of course was the biggest story from Thursday. Where every U.S. president since Harry Truman has failed, Donald Trump and his much-derided son-in-law, Jared Kushner have succeeded. From a piece at the Jerusalem Post:

Israel and the UAE agreed to full normalization of relations in a phone call with US President Donald Trump on Thursday, marking the first peace treaty between Israel and an Arab country in 25 years.

Israel agreed to suspend its planned extension of sovereignty over parts of Judea and Samaria to facilitate relations with the UAE and potentially other Arab and Muslim countries.

The agreement will include establishing embassies and exchanging ambassadors, investments into the Israeli economy, trade, direct flights between Tel Aviv and Abu Dhabi, an investment in Israeli efforts to develop a coronavirus vaccine – as first reported in The Jerusalem Post last month – and cooperation in matters of energy and water. An important element of the deal for the UAE is the expectation that its citizens would be able to visit the Al-Aksa mosque in Jerusalem.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu called the deal “full, formal peace” with “one of the strongest countries in the world.”

“Together we can bring a wonderful future. It is an incomparably exciting moment,” Netanyahu said. “I have the great privilege to make the third peace treaty between Israel and an Arab country, the UAE.”

[End]

The Palestinians who lob bombs into Israel on a daily basis and the anti-Semitic Democrat Party immediately erupted in outrage over the prospect of actual peace breaking out in the Middle East thanks in large part to the tireless efforts of Kusher and constant pushing by President Trump. Democrats – along with their war-mongering buddies in the #NeverTrump crowd of fake Republicans – simply cannot stand the thought of a peaceful Middle East, whose constant turmoil over the last 70 years has proven extremely lucrative for their personal bank accounts. The corrupt terrorists who run the Palestinian government, of course, depend on the constant upkeep of hostile relations between Israel and the rest of the Arab world for their very existence.

Imagine their outrage, then, when they read this next passage from the Jerusalem Post piece:

Netanyahu said he has “reason to be very optimistic that today’s announcement with the UAE will be joined by more countries in this expanding circle of peace.”

The agreement “ushers in a new era of peace between Israel and the Arab world,” he said.

[End]

Both Bahrain and Oman immediately endorsed the agreement between Israel and the UAE, and rumors abound that both countries will soon sign onto it as well. Egypt, which already has diplomatic relations in place with Israel – as does Saudi Arabia – also expressed its pleasure with the deal.

Naturally, Joe Biden’s despicable, elder-abusing handlers shoved their guy out of the basement in an absurd effort to try to take credit:

WILMINGTON, Delaware — Joe Biden is calling the agreement between Israel and the United Arab Emirates “a historic step to bridge the deep divides of the Middle East.”

The former vice president and presumptive Democratic presidential nominee issued a statement on Thursday, calling the agreement that the UAE publicly recognize Israel “a welcome, brave, and badly-needed act of statesmanship” and a “critical recognition that Israel is a vibrant, integral part of the Middle East that is here to stay.”

Biden also said that West Bank annexation by Israel “would be a body blow to the cause of peace, which is why I oppose it now and would oppose it as president” if he’s elected when the U.S. votes in November. He said that as president, he’d seek to foster a two-state solution in the Middle East.

Biden also said the accord shows “the role American democracy can play” and “builds on efforts of multiple administrations,” including President Barack Obama’s. But he did not mention the Trump White House by name.

Biden said he’d spent time with UAE leaders as vice president and “I am gratified by today’s announcement.”

[End]

For the record, the Obama Administration decimated the Middle East, involving U.S. forces in no fewer than 7 separate civil wars across that region and North Africa. Obama/Biden, with the help of John McCain, Lindsey Graham, and other war-mongering RINOs, literally created and equipped ISIS in Syria, leading to the establishment of the Caliphate which ravaged vast swaths of that country and Iraq until Donald Trump ordered the U.S. military to destroy it.

Absolutely disgusting that Biden’s handlers now try to rewrite history, after viciously demonizing Kushner and attempting to undermine his efforts every step of the way for the past 3-1/2 years. These people are pretty much the lowest life form on the planet.

God bless Kushner and President Trump for never giving up on this effort.

That is all.

READ: the U.S. Army Letter Notifying Iraq of Coalition Withdrawal – UPDATED

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

Today, President Donald Trump called the Iraqi government’s bluff, authorizing the commanding general of joint coalition forces in Iraq to send a formal letter to the Iraqi commanding officer notifying him of pending operations for coalition forces to depart from Iraq. This comes in the wake of the vote of the Iraqi parliament over the weekend to demand U.S. forces leave the region.

Here is a photo of the letter that is circulating on social media:

Image

Text:

sLTG Abu Amir
Deputy Director, Combined Joint Operations,Baghdad
Iraq-Ministry of Defense

 

Sir: In due deference to the sovereignty of the Republic of Iraq, and as requested by the Iraqi parliament and Prime Minister, CTJF-OIR will be repositioning forces over the coming days and weeks to prepare for onward movement.

In order to conduct this task, Coalition Forces are required to take certain measures to ensure that the movement out of Iraq is conducted in a safe and efficient manner.

During this time, there will be an increase in helicopter travel in and around the International Zone (IZ) of Baghdad. This increased traffic will include CH-47, UH-60 and AH-64 security escort helicopters.

Coalition forces will take appropriate measures to minimize and mitigate the disturbance to the public. In addition, we will conduct these operations during hours of darkness to help alleviate any perception that we may be bringing more coalition forces into the IZ.

As we begin implementing this next phase of operations, I want to reiterate the value of our friendship and partnership. We respect your sovereign decision to order our departure.

Very respectfully,

 

WILLIAM H. SEELY, III
Brigadier General, U.S. Marine Corps
Commanding General, TF-Iraq

[End]

As we have repeatedly pointed out here at the Campaign Update, one of the main reasons why Donald J. Trump was elected to the presidency in 2016 was his promise to get U.S. armed forces personnel out of the myriad interminable Middle East conflicts into which his predecessors in office had gotten our country entangled.

Trump’s basic message during the campaign was that these wars between various Islamic countries and factions have been going on for eons, and nothing the U.S. can do – no amount of treasure or lives sacrificed – will end that reality. So, let the Islamic states in the region fight it out amongst themselves, and focus U.S. military efforts in the Middle East on protecting our assets and few real allies there – Israel and Saudi Arabia, mainly.

The Iraqi parliament’s demand over the weekend, whether serious or not, plays directly into the President’s hands in this regard.

It is also key to note that this strategic gambit would not be possible were it not for the fact that the U.S. today enjoys a much higher level of energy security than it did during past presidencies, thanks mainly to the shale oil and gas revolution that has taken place here over the past decade. The U.S. is not completely energy “independent” and probably never will be, but our country today has very little compelling national interest in risking American lives and treasure to keep the oil spigots in countries like Iran and Iraq open.

So, this letter from Brig. General Seely now puts the ball squarely back in the Iraqi government’s court. President Trump has basically said, hey, if you want to become a client state of the mullahs in Iran, go for it.

It will be interesting to see how Iraqi Prime Minister Adil Abd Al-Mahdi responds.

UPDATE: Well, maybe it’s not quite goodbye after all. Here is an official Pentagon statement on the matter:

Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman Mark Dilley earlier stated that the letter is real, but the version released on social media is a “draft” that should not have gotten out. Prior to that Defense Secretary Mark Esper said that the letter was not real.

Did someone just get caught in a mole hunt?

I will update this story if the official version keeps changing.

 

That is all. For now.

Media/Democrat non-Crisis Crisis of the Day: Israel Bans Omar and Tlaib

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

The Democrats and their toadies in the mainstream news media are going berserk again today. – No, that’s not the news here; after all, that just happens pretty much every day. The media, after all, must have some non-crisis crisis to obsess over in order to avoid reporting any of the myriad real news that reflects badly on the Democrats.

The non-crisis crisis for today is that Israel, let by its Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, today barred raging anti-Semitic congresswomen Ilhan Omar of Minnesota and Rashida Tlaib of Michigan from traveling to their country. Since pretty much no media outlet will reproduce Netanyahu’s statement and reasoning in full, I’ll start by doing it here:

No country in the world respects America and the American Congress more than the State of Israel. As a free and vibrant democracy, Israel is open to critics and criticism with one exception: Israeli law prohibits the entry into Israel of those who call for and work to impose boycotts on Israel, as do other democracies that prohibit the entry of people who seek to harm the country.

In fact, in the past the US did this to an Israeli member of Knesset, as well as to other public figures from around the world. Congresswomen Tlaib and Omar are leading activists in promoting the legislation of boycotts against Israel in the American Congress. Only a few days ago, we received their itinerary for their visit in Israel, which revealed that they planned a visit whose sole objective is to strengthen the boycott against us and deny Israel’s legitimacy.

For instance: they listed the destination of their trip as Palestine and not Israel, and unlike all Democratic and Republican members of Congress who have visited Israel, they did not request to meet any Israeli officials, either from the government or the opposition.

A week ago, Israel warmly welcomed some 70 Democratic and Republican members of Congress, who expressed broad bipartisan support for Israel, which was also demonstrated a month ago in a resounding bipartisan vote against BDS in Congress. However, the itinerary of the two Congresswomen reveals that the sole purpose of their visit is to harm Israel and increase incitement against it.

In addition, the organization that is funding their trip is Miftah, which is an avid supporter of BDS, and among whose members are those who have expressed support for terrorism against Israel.

Therefore, the minister of interior has decided not to allow their visit, and I, as prime minister, support his decision. Nonetheless, if Congresswoman Tlaib submits a humanitarian request to visit her relatives, the minister of interior has announced that he will consider her request on the condition that she pledges not to act to promote boycotts against Israel during her visit.

All emphasis added is mine.

Now, there is absolutely nothing untrue or unreasonable in that statement. Not one sentence. These two members of congress long ago revealed themselves to be raging anti-Semites, and have avidly and vocally supported various terrorist-supporting groups here in the U.S., as well as the BDS movement.

But the Democrat Party and its media toadies, who always circle the wagons around any Democrat who ever receives any kind of public criticism, have predictably circled the wagons around these two and done everything they can to normalize their anti-Semitic behavior in the public’s consciousness. As a result of that focused normalization effort, they have no choice today but to go berserk and attack Netanyahu, Israel and President Trump, who voiced his approval of Netanyahu’s move on Twitter:

The marvel in all of this is that, despite the blatant and growing anti-Semitism in the Democrat Party, a large portion of the American Jewish population will continue to vote Democrat in the upcoming 2020 elections. One of the most inexplicable ongoing political dynamics in U.S. society, kind of like the down-trodden citizens of Baltimore continuing to re-elect Elijah Cummings every two years.

Anyway, Israel standing up for itself in the face of two rank anti-Semites is today’s non-crisis crisis. Can’t wait to see what the media comes up with for tomorrow.

That is all.

The New York Times Goes Full-on Nazi With Repugnant Netanyahu/Trump Cartoon

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

The New York Times went full-on Nazi propaganda over the weekend when the cartoon below, depicting Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu as a dog being walked by a blind, yarmulke-wearing Donald Trump, was published in its international edition’s op/ed pages:

Image result for new york times anti semitic cartoon

The cartoon is despicably reminiscent of the Nazi propaganda about Jews published during the 1920s and 1930s, which often depicted Jews as sub-human “mongrels,” a term also favored by the Democrat Party-created Ku Klux Klan. Here’s an example from a Nazi publication called Der Sturmer:

Image result for nazi propaganda describing jews as mongrels

After fiddling around for about 24 hours as it received forceful blowback from the public for publishing the atrocious cartoon, the Times staff issued a mealy-mouthed “apology” which referred to the cartoon as “offensive” and blamed its publication on an “error of judgment.”

Let’s understand something about this “error of judgment”: Cartoons don’t just suddenly materialize in the op/ed pages of the New York Times based on an “error of judgment” made by one or two people. That’s if the Times’s own propaganda about itself is to be believed. The Times loves to brag about how anything that appears within its pages has to be “checked and re-checked” over and over again by a long line of checkers before it goes to publication.

Despite all the layoffs of recent years, the New York Times remains a big, corporate organization with multiple layers of staffing and management. Before this disgustingly bigoted cartoon went to print, it most likely had to gain pre-approval by at least half a dozen people with high rankings within that organization.

Thus, the truth about this incident is that it didn’t result from a judgment error at all: It resulted from a presence of leftist bias that permeates every level within the newspaper’s organization. The real problem at the New York Times – and pretty much every other major news outlet in this country – is not a lack of judgment, but a lack of diversity of thought.

The simple fact of the matter is that everyone in the line of decision-making for the Times’s op/ed page is a leftist activist, and as we have seen among the leftist Democrat congressional caucus, antisemitism is running rampant among the American political left. This despicable cartoon was able to go to print because there was no one within the Times’s chain of command who doesn’t march in lock step politically with the Ilhan Omars and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortezes and Rashida Talibs of the world.

This wasn’t an “error of judgment.” This was an inevitable outcome of the organization’s politically-myopic hiring practices.

Harvard Law Professor Alan Dershowitz nailed this matter with a pair of Saturday tweets:

Dershowitz is right to demand an internal investigation by the Times management, but he won’t get it, at least not in any honest form. Because an honest investigation would inevitably reveal the real that the company’s management – and its myopic hiring practices – is in fact the cause of the problem.

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.

This Past Week was President Trump Keeping his Promises

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Well, the day of decision is here, the time to decide whether you are going to stick with President Donald Trump all the way.  The fake news media and the Democrats, along with establishment Republican warmongers like John McCain, Jeff Flake and Bob Corker, are throwing everything they have at the President and his supporters, now going full ahead with the contention that supporting the man who was elected in 2016 is tantamount to treason.

The fuse that touched off the latest – and most intense to date – explosion of leftist, establishment, globalist heads in Washington was, of course, the President’s press conference performance as his meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin came to a close.  Mr. Trump’s sin, as I pointed out last night, was to publicly question the veracity of the allegations of Russian meddling in the 2016 U.S. elections contained in indictments brought down by a proven liar and stonewaller, Rod Rosenstein, and a Special Counsel’s office filled with Clinton/Obama activist hacks.  Those indictments were ostensibly based on information compiled by an FBI led by the likes of proven liars like Andrew McCabe, Peter Strzok and James Comey.

Hard to imagine why anyone would question the work product of such a sterling cast of characters, right?

If the U.S. intelligence community wants to command the respect of the American people, then it might be a good idea for it to stop working against the interests and the will of the American people.  It might be a good idea to stop sending clear, practiced, transparent liars like Rosenstein and Strzok up to represent it in open congressional hearings.  It might be a good idea to start complying with information requests from congressional committees trying to perform the oversight responsibilities mandated to them in the Constitution.  It might have been a good idea for Mr. Mueller to avoid filling his staff with partisan hacks.

In order to command respect, these myriad alphabet agencies should work on earning it.  What a concept.

But the presser with Putin was just the conclusion of a week filled with events and presidential actions and statements that the leftist, globalist, DC establishment detests, actions that President Trump promised to take throughout the 2016 campaign that ended with his victory over the establishment’s preferred sock puppet, Hillary Clinton.  Those actions included the President pointing out the reality, in clear and blunt terms, that NATO is a long-outdated and costly organization populated mainly by deadbeat European countries who refuse to fulfill their financial obligations.

Those actions included calling out Germany for agreeing to partner with Russia – the ostensible “threat” against which NATO is supposedly there to defend – on a multi-billion dollar natural gas pipeline project.  Those actions included blunt and honest talk about the long abuse of unfair tariffs on U.S. goods by EU nations, and their desire to continue their practice.

Those actions included the President talking about U.S./Russia cooperation with our allies in Israel to ensure Iranian troops and militia in Syria are kept away from the Golan Heights.  They also included Trump’s ongoing commitment to bring our military personnel home from the Syrian hellhole once ISIS has been wiped off the face of the earth, another cooperative effort with Russia that is about 98% complete.  And finally, they included conciliatory public statements towards Putin and Russia (we can be sure he was more forceful and pointed with Putin during their private meeting) in an effort to begin establishing an actual, productive working relationship with the world’s other major nuclear power.

Again, what a concept.

Throughout his 2016 campaign, Mr. Trump proved he was a disciple of the likes of George Washington and Dwight Eisenhower, warning against the needless perpetuation of our military ventures all over the world, many of whose roots go all the way back to World War II.  I end up saying this so often in these Campaign Updates, but I’ll say this again:  None of the things President Trump said and did over this past week in Europe should have come as any surprise at all to anyone who actually has a desire to understand him.  Which of course excludes all Democrats and fake news reporters and warmongering GOP senators.

This is Donald Trump keeping his campaign promises.  He made them repeatedly and without nuance – because he’s pretty much incapable of nuance, after all – and he fully intends to carry them out, just as he has gone about carrying out all of his other campaign promises.

To a large extent, it is Trump’s hyper-focus on keeping the promises he made to the American people that makes him such a foreign, almost alien-seeming entity to the corrupt, globalist DC establishment and fake news media.  They have all become so accustomed to having politicians who say all sorts of stuff to get elected, but then come to DC and just bend to the will of the embedded deep state that they just don’t know how to react to anyone whose behavior doesn’t conform to the DC Borg’s hive mind.

Everything President Trump said and did over this past week were things he promised to do, repeatedly and clearly, throughout the 2016 campaign that got him elected.  The corrupt, globalist DC establishment is incredibly upset that it cannot contain him, and is now refocusing its sights not only on the President, but on his supporters as well.

Supporting Donald Trump was never going to be an easy thing, because he was elected to clean out the greatest den of corruption and sleaze ever created by American society.  He has made an amazing amount of progress in a very short period of time, but there is so much more that remains to be done.  The more he pushes, the harder the deep state establishment and its media minions will fight back, so this is only going to become harder still.

If you abandon him now, they win.  It’s really that simple.

That is all.

That Vaunted “Blue Wave” is Going to Become Just Another Democrat Trail of Tears

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Feel good quote of the week. – “John Brennan…needs a very good lawyer…he’s going to be in front of a grand jury.” – Former U.S. Attorney Joe DiGenova, speaking last night on the Tucker Carlson Show.

Why does Donald Trump hate women so?????? – Gina Haspel, Donald Trump’s nominee, yesterday became the first woman ever confirmed to become the Director of the Central Intelligence Agency.  This woman’s nomination was opposed by 2 Republicans and 43 Democrats in the U.S. Senate.

As far as I can tell, the biggest black mark against Ms. Haspel was the glowing endorsement she received from John Brennan.  Certainly does give one pause.

This is in the New York Times so it’s probably fake news, but the fake newspaper of record has a report that big Hollywood muckety-muck agent Jay Sures has recently shopped a new show concept to both CNN and MSNBC.  Sures’ big idea is to create a sort of “Crossfire” reboot pairing up …wait for it…Steve Scaramucci and Michael Avenatti!  That’s right, The Mooch vs. the Creepy Porn Lawyer, a match made in hell.

ummm…No thanks.

Why does the fake news media hate Israel?  Good question, though the answer is pretty obvious. – Harvard Law Professor Alan Dershowitz has a very good piece in the Washington Examiner titled “Why Does The Media Encourage Hamas Violence Against Israel?”

It’s a very valid question, because there is no doubt at all that the American media does this, with its incredibly biased coverage of events involving clashes between Hamas-directed “Palestinians” and the Israeli armed forces.  The latest such event, of course, took place earlier this week, when Hamas sent thousands of armed protesters to try to breach a border wall.

When more than 4 dozen of the “Palestinians” ended up dead, the U.S. media all sang from the same fake hymnal, declaring it a massacre of “peaceful” protesters.  When Hamas later freely admitted that almost all of the dead were in fact armed Hamas terrorist thugs, the American media dropped the story like a hot potato.

The obvious answer to the Professor’s question, of course, is that pretty much every fake reporter, editor and talking head in the American news media is a liberal, and liberals have been taught in American universities to hate Israel with a passion for the last several decades.  This anti-Israel bias bleeds into all their reporting, and you end up with the feeding frenzy we saw on Monday and Tuesday of this week.

The better question is this:  Why do most American Jews continue to vote for liberal politicians, almost all of whom hate Israel, too?  It’s one of the most persistent and maddening aspects of American politics.  Perhaps Mr. Dershowitz, a life-long Democrat, should ask that question of himself.

 

The Examiner also has a report on discussions taking place among the GOP leadership in congress to cancel this year’s month-long August congressional recess:

“Republicans are threatening to keep the Senate open for an extended summer session to process agenda items delayed by Democratic obstruction. But the political benefits of denying incumbent Democrats valuable time on the campaign trail is also factor in the Republicans’ deliberations, and why they appear more willing that usual to give up a treasured annual vacation.”

Before anyone gets too excited about this proposition – which would be an outstanding strategic move – we should all remember that the same discussions took place last year, and the milquetoast Republican leaders ultimately decided they didn’t want to take the media heat they’d receive for actually sticking around Washington and getting the people’s business done.

The wild card this year, though, is the fact that Kevin McCarthy, Steve Scalise and Jim Jordan, the three men competing to succeed Paul Ryan as Speaker of the House, are all more aggressive partisans than Ryan has ever been.  We can hope that pressure from these men might prod Ryan into doing the right thing here, but it is still ultimately a decision that will be made by Ryan and the depressingly non-aggressive Mitch McConnell.

Bottom line:  Be happy if it happens, but don’t go buy any celebratory champagne until it does.

MS-13 is a bunch of sub-human animals – what’s the question here? – After the fake news media uniformly lied about President Trump’s description of MS-13 gang members on Wednesday as “animals”  – dishonestly claiming in unison that the President was applying the pejorative term to all immigrants – Mr. Trump was asked about the matter again at an unrelated White House event yesterday evening.  His answer was not surprising:

“When the MS-13 comes in, when the other gang members come into our country, I refer to them as animals and guess what — I always will,” Trump told reporters”.

Asked and answered.

Given that the Democrat Party and the fake news media are just two elements of a single political apparatus these days, this and other episodes over the last week bring this question to mind:  What does the Democrat Party stand for going into the 2018 mid-term elections?

As far as I can tell, here is the current Democrat Platform:

  • They support Hamas, a group that has been listed as a terrorist organization by the U.S. State Department since the Clinton Administration, and hate Israel, our country’s most loyal ally for half a century;
  • They support MS-13;
  • They support the Crazy Little Fat Guy in North Korea over the American President;
  • They support the Mullahs in Iran over the American President;
  • They’re going to raise your taxes;
  • They favor impeaching the President;
  • They want to de-fund the military;
  • They want to repeal the 2nd Amendment;
  • They’re against freedom of speech;
  • They want to eliminate borders, and thus end U.S. sovereignty;
  • They want to give everyone a job in the government and free college, but have no plan how to fund either.

These are all positions that have been expressed by leaders of the Democrat Party in just the last week.  This is not a winning formula.

That vaunted “blue wave” is going to end up becoming just another Democrat “trail of tears.”

Just another day in it’s all falling apart for the Democrats America.

That is all.

The Deep State Assault on Devin Nunes Reeks of Desperation

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Tired of all this Winning yet? – At 8:00 a.m CT today, the U.S. embassy in Israel will formally transfer its operations from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.  The promise to make this move has been made by every U.S. president since George H. W. Bush.  It took President Donald Trump (I never tire of typing those words) to actually keep the promise on behalf of 315 million Americans.

Oh, by all means, share away. – A senior official in the Iranian government issued a threat to the United States and other countries over the weekend that all 315 million Americans should welcome.  Well, all, that is, except those members of the Obama Administration and their hangers- on who allegedly accepted bribes to make the horrible deal with Iran happen. Because they, if they exist, are the target of the threat.

H.J.Ansari Zarif, the deputy for parliamentary and Iranian affairs within Iran’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs, said he would do the dirty work:  “If Europeans stop trading with Iran and don’t put pressure on US then we will reveal which western politicians and how much money they had received during nuclear negotiations to make #IranDeal happen,” Mr. Zarif reportedly said.

Gosh, maybe that explains why John Kerry has continued his serial violations of the Logan Act even after President Trump announced he was ending U.S. participation in the terrible deal that he negotiated.  On Saturday, Kerry was spotted meeting with three Iranian officials in a Paris cafe’, with one patron claiming he overheard the former Secretary of State railing against President Trump during the conversation, before being photographed lurching away from the meeting by another diner.

Seriously, I have no idea if any actual “bribery” took place during the sham negotiations over the deal, but it would help to explain why some members of the Obama Administration were so anxious to commit the U.S. to an agreement in which our country gained literally nothing.  So if there really is evidence of any such bribery, by all means, share away, Mr. Zarif.  Don’t leave us hanging here.

The deep state is really, really worried about Devin Nunes, and we should all be just fine with that. – Speaking to some audience of poor saps in Washington over the weekend, ex-FBI Director and current teenage drama queen James Comey said that, in his pursuit of actual information from deep state thugs at the Justice Department and the FBI, House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes is “acting dangerously.”

“You cannot overstate the danger in that kind of behavior to the security of the United States,” Comey said.

Comey’s absurd statements align directly – shocking, I know – with recent talking points targeting Nunes in the fake news media, and with recent statements by Deputy U.S. Attorney Rod Rosenstein, who called Nunes’ legitimate efforts to obtain information from DOJ under his committee’s oversight responsibilities “extortion.”  Holy cow.

But it only got more extreme from Comey:

Comey, who was fired by President Trump last year, said he’s never seen this level of pressure for the intelligence community to abdicate information about a protected source. He warned this effort “risks the death of the thing that is at the core of our ability to protect this country.”

Let’s review here what Chairman Nunes is currently after from our deep state DOJ.  He is looking for the name of the supposed “intelligence asset” who Obama CIA Director John Brennan used as the basis for the communication he sent over to the FBI in July 2016 formally authorizing the commencement of a counterintelligence operation against the Trump Campaign.  He is attempting to determine if this “asset” had been inserted into the Trump Campaign by the Obama intelligence community, or if he was interacting with members of the Trump Campaign in a classic spy effort to “dirty them up” to give the appearance of wrongdoing.

The truth is that Nunes and many other people already know the identity of the person in question, as his name has been uncovered by enterprising independent investigators and has been bandied about all over the internet over the past four days, along with documentation that, in late September 2016, he was paid a very large amount of money by the intelligence community with taxpayer dollars for his efforts.  And the truth is that the FBI had already been conducting a counterintelligence operation against the Trump Campaign well before it received the communication from Mr. Brennan authorizing same.  We’ve known that for some time now.

This is what James Comey and John Brennan and all the other Obama deep staters are so desperate to cover up:  The Obama Administration was actively spying on and attempting to entrap members of the presidential campaign of the opposition party.  This is the most shocking breach of the public trust ever committed by any presidential administration, and Devin Nunes is intent upon exposing it to the public.

So it’s no wonder that the public statements by Mr. Comey and the shrill tweets coming out of Mr. Brennan literally reek of desperation.  These are really bad, really guilty people who engaged in the worst sort of betrayal under the belief it would all be covered up when Hillary Clinton won the election.

Just one problem:  Hillary didn’t win.  Oops.

Just another day in the deep state is reeking of desperation America.

That is all.
