Pelosi’s “Official” Fake Impeachment Inquiry Threatens The Country’s Survival

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

“It’s really a sad day for our country. I feel very sad right now.” – Nancy Pelosi

Oh, yeah, it really is a sad day for our country, San Fran Nan. – The saddest part of all of it is that many of us have known all along that the deranged, despicable, depraved Democrats would take the country down this road sooner or later since the day after Donald J. Trump was elected to the presidency. Every step the Democrat Party has taken, from the creation and funding of Antifa, to the efforts to entrap and frame a sitting President of the United States, to the Mueller Witch Hunt, to the Congressional Clown Circus led by Jabaa the Nadler and Bug Eyes Schiff, has obviously and overtly been designed to lead to yesterday’s crowning moment of shame.

We all knew the depraved Democrat Party would take the nation to this sorry point sooner or later, even though it has still never been able to find any actual legal basis for doing so. We knew this would happen because the Democrat Party no longer has any interest in governing under our constitutional republican system of government, and only cares about the acquisition and maintenance of political power.

This reality has been the case since at least 1992, but has never been rendered more nakedly obvious than it has since the Democrats and San Fran Nan assumed power in the House of Representatives on January 1 of this year. The Judiciary and Intelligence committees chaired by Nadler and Schiff, along with the Oversight committee chaired by the equally depraved Elijah Cummings, have yet to spend a moment of time on any real work for the public interest during the first 9 months of this year, instead maintaining a myopic focus on dummying up some pretense – any old pretense would do – to move towards impeachment of the President.

But here’s the funniest part of yesterday’s antics by Pelosi: Despite all the weasel words she spoke in her statement late in the afternoon, nothing real changed. Pelosi said this:

The only problem here is that an “official impeachment inquiry” has no meaning under the constitution and the law. Pelosi knows that, which is why she used those specific words, and made no reference to mounting a formal impeachment inquiry via a vote of the full House, which would have some meaning under the law.

See, the speaker of the house has no power whatsoever to unilaterally declare a formal impeachment inquiry. None. Doing that requires a majority vote of the entire body of the House. That would mean San Fran Nan would have to somehow cobble together 217 actual, recorded “yes” votes on the floor of the House.

Given that the Democrats currently control 235 seats to 198 (2 seats are vacant) for the Republicans, one might think getting to a simple majority would be an easy task for the doddering, stammering Speaker. But one would be surprised for holding that thought.

Pelosi’s big problem in all of this is that she has 35 or so members who managed to steal districts in the 2018 elections normally held by Republicans. Few if any of those folks, who would like to get re-elected in those same districts next year and been working hard to fool their constituents into believing they are “moderates,” are willing to go on the record as formally supporting a formal impeachment inquiry targeting a Republican president when there are no real grounds for going down that radical road.

So, just as with everything else she and her fellow Democrats do, yesterday’s theatrics by Pelosi were just that: Theater. Dishonest theater. Nothing real will change – those committees will just keep doing what they’ve been doing all year.

The only thing that will change will be the talking points parroted by the Democrat toady media, which will henceforth parrot the words “official impeachment inquiry,” peppering them into every report they make. This is how the mass public brainwashing process works – repetition of key messages is crucial. Goebbels and his fellow Nazis called it the “big lie.”

If you don’t believe that’s what the Democrats are doing here, read this morning’s piece in Politico titled “Vulnerable Democrats fear impeachment messaging stumbles” and count the number of times Democrat members quoted in the piece focus on “messages.” In that 600 or so word piece, I count 15 references to “messages,” “messaging,” “talking points,” or some other iteration of those words. It’s pretty much all they talk about.

The Democrats are very desperate here, because their mass brainwashing efforts keep failing. As of yesterday, President Trump’s public approval rating in the Rasmussen survey stood at 53%, a two-year high and fully 6 points higher than the rating received by Barack Hussein Obama at the same point in his presidency 8 years ago. Trump’s standing in the RealClearPolitics average, which includes all the fake polls created by media outlets purely to drive fake news stories, stands at 45.1%, also a two-year high.

The truth is that Donald Trump is a very popular president when compared to his immediate predecessors in office, Obama and George W. Bush, and his base of support, which represents over 40% of the nation, is steadfastly loyal. Making matters even more desperate for the Democrat “leadership,” such as it exists, is the fact that all the Marxist/fascist promises made by the radicals running for their presidential nomination are backfiring, especially in those swing congressional districts.

The President is going to release the transcript of his call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky today, along with the complaint by the Democrats’ fake “whistleblower,” an Obama loyalist who has no first-hand knowledge of that conversation. That fake whistleblower will also testify before Bug Eyes and his committee in the coming days.

The transcript will no doubt prove the President said nothing wrong, but the fake media and their Democrat masters will do everything they can to spin it otherwise, or even better, to claim the transcript has been somehow “doctored.” Despicable media hacks at MSNBC and CNN were laying the groundwork for those tactics yesterday.

Make no mistake about this: Regardless of the ongoing brainwashing efforts by the Democrat/Media propaganda complex, if the Democrats move down this road and end up holding a successful impeachment vote in the House, Democrats in those swing districts will pretty much all lose their re-election bids. Any Republican who joins an effort to remove the President via a 2/3rds vote in the Senate will be writing the end to his or her political career, and possibly to the GOP itself. There will be no forgiveness for such a despicable act of sedition, nor should there be.

Finally, should the Senate end up removing the President from office absent any real grounds for doing so, then the social contract between the public and the entire ruling class, already hanging on by a mere thread, will have been completely severed. If that sad day should come to pass, all bets for our nation’s survival in its current form will be off.

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.

Beto O’Rourke Tries Cussing His Way to the Presidency

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

It didn’t work for Kirsten Gillibrand, Irish Bob, and it won’t work for you. – El Paso native Robert Francis O’Rourke has over the last two days put on the most craven, disgusting display of raw political grasping I think I’ve ever seen.

Democrats always politicize tragedy – that’s just become a sad given in today’s American society. This has just been a fact of our lives since the Clinton Administration, and it’s what Rahm Emanuel was talking about when he famously declared that Democrats should “never let a good crisis go to waste.”

Irish Bob, who has been floundering around for months in a failed presidential campaign that can’t get above the 3% polling level, obviously decided within a few hours of Saturday’s atrocity in his home city that this was his chance to get himself back in the spotlight, perhaps his last chance. But, knowing that every one of his 6,000 or so rivals for the nomination would also be working their butts off to use the shootings to grab attention for themselves, Irish Bob obviously made the conscious decision to be as outrageous as humanly possible in order to stand out from the craven crowd.

How best to do that? Fall back on the two things in his entire life that he is apparently really good at: Cussing and outrageous lying. The lying, of course, is just standard issue part of any Democrat campaign, but the cussing he’s been doing – holy cow. And not just a few cusswords here and there, but loading up almost every statement with bunches of cusswords that my dear Mom used to wash my mouth out with soap for saying. Here are just a couple of quotes from the goofy opportunist over the last couple of days. First, the cussing.:

Image

And here’s the bald-faced lying:

“He is saying that some people are inherently defective or dangerous – reminiscent of something you might hear in the Third Reich, not something that you expect in the United States of America – based on their religion, based on their sexual orientation, based on their immigration status, based on the countries that they come from. Calling those in Africa shithole nations and saying that he’d like to have more immigration from Nordic countries, the whitest place on planet Earth today. Again, let’s be very clear about what is causing this and who the president is.”

You may remember that, when she first began thinking about running for the presidency back in late 2017, Kirsten Gillibrand went on a cussing rampage because her advisors told her it would get her gobs of press attention. And it did get her attention. What it didn’t do was gain her any favor at all with voters, and there she sits all these months later, still mired at 0% in pretty much every poll.

It won’t work for Irish Bob, either, because everyone already knows what a craven doofus he is and it will be universally be seen as the sad political tactic from a failing candidate that it is.

The same goes for the lying. The only people who are going to believe all that stuff are Democrats who already believe all that stuff, despite the public record to the contrary.

The only people Donald Trump has called “defective or dangerous” are members of drug gangs like MS-13 and domestic terrorist groups like Antifa. The claim that the President has referred to all immigrants or all Hispanics or African Americans in negative terms is a bald-faced lie invented by Democrats like O’Rourke and their toadies in the fake news media. He has borne this out not just in words but in actions as well, as his administration has worked to significantly increase legal immigration while at the same time attempting to stop illegal immigrants from flooding the southern border.

Then there’s the outrageous lie that he has ever supported or praised real “white nationalists,” all of whom in this country would fit into a phone booth if phone booths still existed. He has in fact, on dozens of very public occasions, slammed and disavowed them, as he did yet again in yesterday’s speech.

Donald Trump is an equal-opportunity slammer who counter-punches against those who attack him first. He has spent immensely more time going after white people like Cryin’ Chuckie Schumer and Fauxcahontas and Jabba The Nadler and Pencil Neck Schiff than he has people of color.

Democrat liars and their media toadies want to classify his attacks on despicable hacks like Elijah Cummings – who has become fabulously wealthy while serving in congress on a maximum salary of $174,000 a year while the people in his district continue to suffer in the most squalid conditions in America – and loud-mouthed radicals like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and the rest of her anti-Semitic crew as “racism” because they know they must somehow distract the public away from learning the truth about those folks. Because the truth about them is so ugly that it would turn voters away from their Party, especially if the public should ever learn that they are now the rule among Democrats, not the exception.

Finally, President Trump has never “incited violence…in this country” as Irish Bob claims in that first quote. That is explicitly true about the two mass shootings over the weekend. As we have discovered over the last two days, the Dayton shooter was a registered Democrat who was a big fan of Elizabeth Warren. The El Paso shooter is also a self-professed Democrat whose “manifesto” lays out his support for all manner of radical leftwing causes, and explicitly states he is NOT a Trump fan.

But, never wanting to let a good crisis go to waste, every Democrat and hack fake reporter in the nation has jumped on the narrative that it’s all Trump’s fault. The only aspect of any of this that is – in Irish Bob’s words – reminiscent of something “you might hear in the Third Reich” is the Democrat/media effort to push the Big Lie.

No one has been more craven and opportunistic about doing that than El Paso’s own Irish Bob O’Rourke.

Disgusting.

That is all.

Mueller Tries to Keep Democrat Hope Alive in Today’s Testimony

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

Hey, remember how Robert Mueller said he didn’t want to testify before congress, and that if he did, his testimony would not say anything that isn’t in his report? – Yeah, don’t count on that being the case today.

Mueller is, after all, our National Inquisitor, a certified agent of the Deep State, a snake with 30 years’ experience swimming around in the glop of the D.C. Swamp. Nothing he says is ever real, meaningful or bound by the strictures of what we normal people naively refer to as the “truth.”

So, now that Mueller has had four months to coordinate his questions and answers with House Democrats, their staffers and his lawyers, he believes he has his perjury-proof armor consisting of fantasies and weasel-words and is now ready and willing to go.

Here we go again.

A Houston radio host said this morning that there have been no fewer than 4 separate investigations into “Russia Collusion” conducted by various arms of the federal government over the last 3-plus years. He was kind of close.

Just off the top of my head, I can count as many as seven such investigations:

  • The Mueller Investigation – no collusion;
  • The House Judiciary Committee – no collusion;
  • The Senate Judiciary Committee – no collusion;
  • The House Intel Committee – no collusion;
  • The Senate Intel Committee – no collusion;
  • The FBI/DOJ’s illegal Operation Crossfire Hurricane entrapment effort – no collusion;
  • James Comey’s illegal personal entrapment effort during 2017 – no collusion;

There are more that I’m forgetting about here, but you get the picture. These various investigations lingered on for months, some for years, conducted thousands of witness interviews, obtained public testimony in which numerous Obama high officials committed outright perjury many, many times, obtained millions of pages of documents from the Trump Campaign, the Trump Transition, and the Trump Administration, and here we sit in July, 2019, without a shred of evidence that exists outside the demented minds of Jabba the Nadler, Pencil Neck Schiff and San Fran Nan supporting any allegation of collusion or obstruction of justice.

If any people of good faith who truly care about America existed in today’s Democrat Party, they would have abandoned all of this for the good of the nation in January and focused their new House Majority on an actual policy agenda. But, as we have now known without any doubt at all since November 9, 2016, there are no longer any such people of good faith involved in the Democrat Party, so this despicable farce continues with Mueller’s highly-scripted testimony today.

If you think anything ends after today, and that perhaps San Fran Nan will finally be willing to try to impose some normalcy on her House caucus, forget that. She basically laid out her plans for keeping this alive through next year’s elections in a fantasy-filled six-page memo issued yesterday.

San Fran Nan and her evil minions Jabba and Pencil Neck are relying on Mueller to go well outside the bounds of his report today in order to keep this fantasy alive for the next 18 months. As he has throughout his entire despicable career in law enforcement whenever the DC Swamp calls on him for some act of depravity, you can be sure that Mueller will deliver today with answers scripted in direct coordination with the Democrats on these committees.

Undermining America is his core competency, after all.

That is all.

Why Are Leftist Politicians Always “Dehydrated”?

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

When will these leftists learn how to drink water? – BREAKING: We have an epidemic of dehydration breaking out among leaders of the globalist left! Check out this video of German despot Angela Merkel coming down with a case of the shakes at an outdoor ceremony yesterday with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky:

After this disturbing video was taken, Merkel told her willing accomplices in the press that she was suffering from “dehydration” and was just peachy after she went behind closed doors for a bit and drank some water. So that’s the narrative the fake news media has parrotted to the public.

What is it with these evil globalist/leftists and their seeming inability to consume water before they go out and collapse in public? I mean, who could forget this scene of the Fainting Felon…well…fainting and having to literally be thrown into her mobile hospital van by her aides as she fled the scene of a 9/11 ceremony in New York City back during the 2016 campaign?

Or how about this one, of Jerrold Nadler almost passing out cold while seated at a recent outdoor event in New York?

Nadler had to be rushed to a nearby emergency room following this incident.

Both the Coughing Crook and Jabba the Nadler also blamed their public displays of dysfunction on the handy excuse of “dehydration.” It seems to be the stock excuse used by evil leftist politicians whenever the fall ill in public.

The consistency of the excuse/narrative also tells us that it is most likely a line of smelly BS. There was a reason why the Fainting Felon traveled around in that black van during the 2016 campaign, a van that was equipped like your basic EMS vehicle: She was suffering from an array of very obvious ailments, as signaled by her constant fits of uncontrolled coughing in the middle of speeches and the fact that she has to be helped by at least one strong person to climb even a few stairs to a podium.

Jabba the Nadler used to weigh about 600 pounds, as you can see here:

Image result for jerrold nadler fat pictures

He’s lost much of that weight over the years, but is still a short little munchkin who is massively overweight. Interestingly, he seems to still be wearing the same suits, as his pants now come up to his bust line. No telling what sort of actual ailments he is dealing with.

Evil Angela, as can clearly be seen in the video above, is also woefully out of shape, and her grey pallor makes her look like a walking heart attack.

Perhaps this is just the lot in life for those who, like these three, make the projection of outright evil their life’s pursuit. Or perhaps, given the state of modern medical care, all of these individuals most likely consume several prescription medications every day, especially given their ages and poor physical conditions: Merkel is 64, the Fainting Felon is 71, Nadler is 72. Many such modern medications can lead to dehydration, especially when taken with other unrelated medications.

Everything on the political left is a narrative in action, even when its advocates become publicly ill. The stock narrative for that is “dehydration.” Because, hey, when you are a leftist politician there is no reason to tell the truth, since you know the fake news media is just going to parrot your lies.

That is all.

This is a Week the Democrats are Going to Want to Take Back

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

Man, are the Democrats having a bad week, or what?  It’s just Wednesday, and it’s hard to imagine how things could go more poorly for them. Let’s go through some of the highlights, er, lowlights.

Monday began with Jabba The Nadler backing down on his plan to hold Attorney General William Barr in contempt, as he announced a “deal” with the AG’s office in which his Witch Hunt Committee would receive a few of the documents they’ve been demanding but have no intention of actually reading. Obviously, this means that the Democrats had gotten some really bad polling numbers on the whole effort to demonize Barr, since everything they do and say is based on focus groups and polls.

Jabba then moved to a disastrous hearing in which old Watergate felon John Dean offered testimony about the Mueller Report, even though he has no original knowledge about any aspect of it. The hearing was a complete fiasco for the Democrats as GOP members like Matt Gaetz, Louie Gohmert, John Ratcliffe and Jim Jordan turned Dean into a human pin cushion. The only thing the hearing demonstrated was the exact reason why Mueller himself refuses to show up and testify.

Also on Monday, the Democrats in the House got caught trying to sneak a pay raise for themselves into an unrelated piece of legislation, and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has spent the entire week making an ass of herself on Twitter trying to defend the move.

The fake news media spent all day Tuesday building up the two speeches Creepy Uncle Joe was going to make in Iowa in an effort to convince their viewers that the ex-Vice President was about to absolutely destroy President Donald Trump. But, as is pretty much always the case, Biden’s speeches were both duds delivered to audiences so tiny that none of the TV networks dared even show them. Meanwhile, Trump was also giving a speech in Iowa before yet another gigantic, enthusiastic crowd.

Talk about your bad optics.

So, today all the talking heads quit talking about Biden and started talking about the new Quinnipiac Poll, which supposedly shows that Biden would crush Trump in a “landslide”, according to the poll’s spokesman. But a couple of glaring problems with narrative become immediately obvious:

First, we are still 17 months away from the election, and any polls taken now are utterly meaningless. The poll shows Biden beating Trump by 13 points, and…so what? Hell, ABC/Washington Post released a poll showing Hillary Clinton with that exact same lead on Trump just three weeks before the 2016 election. How did that work out?

Second, that very same Quinnipiac poll shows Biden’s lead over the rest of the Democrat field crashing, with his edge over The Commie falling from 19 points last month to just 11 points today. The man isn’t even going to maintain a lead for the nomination past this September, so why should anyone get excited about some fake poll showing him with a lead over the President?

No one should, and no one outside of the studios of CNN and MSNBC is.

Then, to make matters even worse, you had Kirsten Gillibrand – fresh off her gay bar fiasco over the weekend – comparing anyone who opposes an unfettered right to kill babies, even after they’ve been born, to racists, homophobes and Nazis. Yeah, that’s not going to play well out here in Flyover Country, Toots. Just ask Abortion Barbie about how it worked out for her when she ran for governor in Texas back in 2014.

Even the Democrat-toady fake media is falling apart. John Nolte reports that last week’s rating show that CNN has lost fully 1/3rd of its prime time audience in the past year, and suffered a 55% drop in the key 25-34 year old advertising demographic. CNN now trails HGTV in the number of prime time viewers. After all, why would anyone watch Fredo Cuomo and Don Lemon blabber on when they can take in another rerun of Flip or Flop for the 5th time?

Speaking of Fredo Cuomo, he interviewed Bill Mahr Monday night, and here’s what Mahr had to say when asked “Do you think he’s [Trump] winning”:

“Yes. And I’m sick of [Trump] winning.  He’s right. I got sick of winning – his winning.”

 

Yikes. Unless things change dramatically, this is a week the Democrats are going to want to take back.

Too bad.

That is all.

Pelosi Lobs a Bomb as President Trump Honors Fallen D-Day Heroes

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

Hey, there could be a cause and effect relationship here. – The NBA’s year-over- year ratings are down 22% in 2019. Meanwhile, we can no longer refer to the owners of NBA franchises as “owners.”  The reason? Because it makes the largely-black players who these [not] owners have turned into multi-millionaires feel all like ‘slaves’ and stuff. You just cannot make this stuff up.

What a coincidence! I preferred life before Madonna! – Aging, vastly overrated pop star Madonna told an interviewer for New York Times Magazine that “I preferred life before the phone.” Which is interesting since, at age 60, she has never experienced life without phones. The piece itself, linked here, is a tiresome bit of fawning media hackery, so don’t waste your time.

Oh, this’ll really thaw those chilly relations. – Just a couple of weeks after she pretended to chastise President Donald Trump for refusing to negotiate with her and Chuckie Schumer on an infrastructure bill just hours after she had accused him of executing a “cover-up” of something or other, San Fran Nan went even further into the realm of abject dementia on Wednesday. In yet another “impeachment meeting” with her deranged House caucus, the Speaker of the House engaged in a heated discussion with Jabba the Nadler in which she said “I don’t want to see him [Trump] impeached, I want to see him in prison.”

At least, she said that according to a story in the left-wing digital concoction called Politico, which is based on anonymous sources only. In fact, Politico identifies these sources as “multiple Democratic sources familiar with the meeting.” That likely means none of the sources were actually in the meeting, because if they had been, Politico would have identified them as “sources who were present at the meeting,” or something similar. Most likely, assuming these “sources” even exist, they are acquaintances of Jabba, San Fran Nan or Pencil Neck.

But hey, let’s just assume the story is true, mainly because it sounds exactly like something this evil woman would actually say, and like something she and Democrats in general would plant in the fake news media while the President of the United States is in France commemorating the 75th anniversary of the D-Day invasion. Because this is what the Democrats do, and it is who they are. They will resort to literally any tactic to give their media toadies an excuse to avoid reporting anything positive about this President.

Here’s the best passage from the Politico fake/real/who knows? report:

Ashley Etienne, a Pelosi spokeswoman said Pelosi and the chairmen “had a productive meeting about the state of play with the Mueller report. They agreed to keep all options on the table and continue to move forward with an aggressive hearing and legislative strategy, as early as next week, to address the president’s corruption and abuses of power uncovered in the report.”

That is some world class word salad right there, folks. Basically, what it says is “We’re gonna keep having hearings and tossing out subpoenas until we find something that sticks.” Funny, Robert Mueller spent two years and $40 million taxpayer dollars doing the same thing, and we saw how that all worked out for his Democrat masters.

And therein lies the biggest source of Democrat frustration: After all this time, all these investigations, all of this money and all of this rhetoric, there is just nothing there. Like Mueller, they are left holding a big bag of nothing, which has them in a constantly-ratcheting state of panic.

Jabba and Pencil Neck want to just throw reality to wind and move ahead with impeachment for the sake of it, but San Fran Nan wants to maintain some chance of preserving her House majority and remaining Speaker past the 2020 elections. The irony here is that Jabba and Pencil Neck want to trod the same road Pelosi trod with Obamacare in 2010, when she famously advised the American voters that “we need to pass the bill so we can see what’s in it.”

Like Pelosi a decade ago, they want to just open up Pandora’s Box and see if they can get anything real to fall out of it. But San Fran Nan learned something from her Obamacare episode, which is that the American voters do not approve of this sort of abuse of the process in congress, and will direly punish those who engage in it the next time they have the chance to do so at the ballot box.

Speaking of Robert Mueller, our now-retired Witch Hunter-in-Chief, everyone should note that Christopher Steele, who concocted the fake Trump Dossier that became the basis for the Obama FBI’s rampant spying operations against the Trump Campaign in 2016, has agreed to conduct an interview with investigators at the Department of Justice. Given the personal jeopardy such an interview would create for the ex-British spy, we must assume Steele has likely cut some sort of immunity deal in exchange for his testimony.

Speculation is that Steele will be interviewed by DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz, who has been engaged for two years now in his own investigation of the abuses of the FISA process by Obama officials. If that’s the case, that means that Horowitz is still trying to tie things down in his investigation and his report likely won’t be coming anytime in June.

I know the wheels of real justice turn slowly, but this is getting to be damned ridiculous.

That is all.

Mueller Gets in a Final, Despicable Smear

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

A “special counsel” who has no idea what the word “justice” actually means. – Looking for all the world like a doddering, poorly-aging man in need of assisted living care and sounding like a stammering, nervous wreck, Gestapo Chief, er, Special Counsel Robert Mueller got in one final despicable smear at President Donald J. Trump today in a press conference at which he refused to take questions.

Reading haltingly from a prepared text from which he never strayed, the man who spent 20 months conducting a depraved witch hunt designed to hamper a duly elected president’s ability to run his administration and serve as opposition research for the 2020 Democrat presidential nominee demonstrated conclusively that he rejects the Constitutional dictum that any American citizen charged with a crime must be presumed innocent unless proved guilty in a court of law. Mueller turned that crucial principle of American liberty on its head by stating that his objective was in fact to dig up dirt on a sitting POTUS and to instead declare him to be innocent if only he and his team of Clinton/Obama hacks felt confident in doing so.

To be exact, Mueller said “If we had confidence that the president did not commit a crime, we would have said so,” when in fact any ethical prosecutor would instead have said something like “If we had found evidence that the President committed a crime, we would have said so.”

The difference in those two statements is no trivial matter. It is in fact the single most crucial difference between personal liberty and oppression. Yet, Mueller made that un-American statement even after grudgingly admitting he and his Witch Hunter team found no evidence that the President committed any obstruction of justice, and no evidence of any collusion by the President with any foreign interest.

It is the continuation of a despicable smear, a depraved act by a highly-political, corrupt and for some reason desperate man.

I say “desperate” because it is hard to envision any other reason for Mueller to have held today’s press event. What other reason besides desperation was there to do so? He certainly was not being prodded to do so by Attorney General William Barr or anyone else in the Trump Administration. He certainly has no obligation to respond via the media to Democrat efforts to force him to testify before various house committees. He certainly had no obligation to make a verbal statement of any kind to the press regarding his retirement from the DOJ – a simple memo to Barr would do that trick.

So why did he do it? Let’s think about that for a moment, because I think he was there to send some very specific messages, the first of which was to Jabba the Nadler and the rest of the despicable House Democrats.

That message was: “Read my report. My report speaks for itself, and I would not testify to anything beyond that report. Now, leave me alone.”

What does that mean? That means that Mueller knows that he would have to answer questions from Republicans as well as Democrat members of any committee, and that not be an easy thing for him to do. He also knows that he would subject himself to perjury charges should any of his verbal testimony contradict anything in the 440 page report he stupidly sent over to AG Barr in March. For better or worse, he is stuck defending everything that is in that report, word for word, and he doesn’t want to assume the risk of having to remember it all under oath.

The second message Mueller likely wanted to deliver on the record today was to Barr himself. Mueller spent time in his statement pointing to the fact that the scope of his Witch Hunt was authorized by then-Deputy AG Rod Rosenstein in a pair of scoping memos, and make various other self-justifying statements. This probably means that Barr and U.S. Attorney John Durham are reviewing Mueller’s many abuses in the scope of their own investigation, which would help explain why Mueller was so extremely nervous while making today’s statement.

Mueller’s final message was that he is an angry, bitter man. Angry that his Witch Hunt failed in its goal of successfully executing a coup d’etat on President Trump, angry that he had to shut it all down when a real, functional Attorney General took over that office, bitter that he is now facing personal jeopardy for conduct that Rosenstein had personally sanctioned.

Thus, he issued one final angry, bitter statement containing one final smear of the President, a smear that literally turns our nation’s system of justice and protections of personal liberty on its head.

The proper charge for attempting a coup d’etat on U.S. soil is treason, the maximum penalty for which is death.

There is no punishment too harsh for a government official who would stoop to such despicable tactics.

That is all.

The Week in Review: Panic in the Deep State as Barr Steams Ahead

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

No more Twitter Week in Review, I’m afraid. For whatever reason, WordPress doesn’t seem to be able to handle that many photos in a single post anymore. Weird. So until I figure that bit of technical nonsense out, we’ll have to review the week the old-fashioned way, with mostly words. Man, it’s like we’re back in the 20th century here.

So, here is your Week in Review, retro-style:

The week began with fake Republican Justin Amash from Michigan, joining his fellow Michigander Rashida Tlaib in calling for President Trump’s impeachment. Like Tlaib, Amash has no clue what the exact grounds for impeachment would be, but he did know his business interests in China were suffering from the President’s trade policies, and by golly, that was enough for him. In response to Amash’s craven act, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy encouraged Amash to just go ahead and switch parties. Good advice.

While 25 despicable candidates for the Democrat nomination were out around the country giving students false hopes that their massive college loans would be forgiven if only they voted for them – that isn’t gonna happen unless we want to crash the national banking system – Austin billionaire investor Robert F. Smith took matters into his own hands. In the midst of his commencement address at Morehouse College, Smith informed the graduating class that he would personally be paying off their loans, an incredibly generous gesture that will cost him an estimated $57 million.

I would say hey, maybe Smith should run for the Democrat nomination, but 1) I don’t know the man’s politics, and 2) no one that intelligent could possibly attract the votes of the deranged Democrat voter base.

By Monday, it had become apparent that Irish Bob O’Rourke’s “re-boot” of his moribund campaign had already run aground, and polls issued throughout the week showed his numbers had dropped from a fairly consistent 5-6% support a few weeks ago down to a consistent 2-3% now. Apparently, even his wife and dog are now planning to vote for Mayor Pete instead.  Oof.

Hey, remember Eric Swalwell, and how he was also running for the Democrat nomination? Given that he consistently hits 0% in the polls, not many people do. But he is running, though no one is really sure why. On Monday the Washington Free Beacon did the Washington Post’s job, reporting that the 38 year-old California nitwit has failed to pay down his own student loans, which total up to as much as $100,000. Hey, maybe that’s why he’s running – so he can forgive himself. It makes more sense than anything else.

Speaking of Democrats mysteriously in the race, ex-Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper told an interviewer this week that “Withdrawing the U.S. from global engagement makes us less safe.” The only trouble is, no one is doing that. So he wins this week’s non sequitur award.

It was the week that the deep state rats really started scurrying for cover, with Usual Suspects like James Comey, John Brennan, James Clapper and Loretta Lynch very publicly arguing with and pointing fingers at each other in a desperate attempt to avoid becoming the subjects of grand jury subpoenas and indictments. Cartoonist A.F. Branco captured it all perfectly here:

When President Trump re-tweeted that hilariously perfect cartoon, both Brennan and Comey got a very public case of the vapors, which they of course took to their Twitter feeds. Doesn’t everybody?

By Tuesday, the cacophony coming from House Democrats demanding impeachment had reached high enough decibel levels that even doddering old Nancy Pelosi could hear it, so she called a special ‘impeachment meeting’ with all of them on Wednesday morning. Emerging from that meeting, she accused President Trump of executing a “cover-up”, and then immediately traveled to the White House for a long-scheduled meeting with the President and Chuck Schumer on infrastructure. Trump then abruptly cancelled that meeting due to Pelosi’s having just accused him of felonious behavior, starting a public pissing contest between the two that lasted the rest of the week.

Our fake news media blamed Trump for everything, because of course they did.

Another week passed without Robert Mueller or anyone else appearing to testify before Jaba The Nadler’s House Kangaroo Court Committee, formerly known as the Judiciary Committee. Upon learning of Mueller’s latest refusal to show, CNN reporter Manu Raj took to Twitter – because of course he did – to inform his half-dozen loyal readers that “Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s team has expressed reticence to him testifying publicly in front of the House Judiciary Committee, according to sources familiar with the matter. His team has expressed that he does not want to appear political.”

Everyone in Washington and out here in Flyover Country was left to wonder exactly who Robert Mueller’s “team” consists of, given that Mueller is now nothing more than an employee at the Department of Justice. Everyone was also left to wonder when exactly it was that Mueller – who conducted a 20-month Witch Hunt and then, failing to find a crime of any kind, issued a 424 page report specifically designed to damage a sitting POTUS politically – suddenly became concerned about appearing to be political. No answers were forthcoming, although whenever they do come, we can be sure they will be posted on Twitter.

Rock singer David Lee Roth is getting his own Las Vegas residency, because the nation simply cannot get enough of a 70 year-old guy singing “Hot for Teacher.”

Researchers at the University of Iceland violated the ClimateScam narrative this week by noting that that glaciers in both Iceland and Greenland had expanded dramatically over the last 12 months and would continue to expand in coming years. They will no doubt soon be looking for other employment, because the narrative must be honored in today’s academic world.

The Washington Examiner did the Washington Post’s job and discovered this week that Mayor Pete’s dad was a dedicated Marxist who regularly read the Communist Manifesto to his son over the dinner table. Just your normal, every day Democrat politician’s family, right? Right.

Washington state Governor Jay Inslee – who is also running for the 2020 Democrat nomination, because of course he is – signed a bill making it legal to compost human bodies in that state. Have you figured out yet that the Democrat Party is a death cult? Because I have.

In the best talking head clip of the week, Louisiana Senator John Kennedy goes off on John Brennan and Iran:

It isn’t getting anything else productive done, but the U.S. Senate this week managed to confirm the 41st circuit court nominee by President Trump, far and away a record for any president at this point in his first term.

The Creepy Porn Lawyer received even more indictments this week, this time for bilking his porn star client out of $300,000. He now faces up to 410 years in the federal pen. See? There is still justice in America.

Mayor Pete got his Fox News townhall Monday evening, complete with an audience stacked with his supporters and softball questions from a fawning Chris Wallace. Fox’s ratings soared.

Irish Bob O’Rourke got himself a townhall Tuesday night on CNN, causing CNN’s ratings to tank another 30%. O’Rourke then said he sure would like to get him one of those Fox News deals with Chris Wallace, prompting President Trump to issue a tweet asking what in the hell is going on at Fox News?  Good question.

The big bomb of the week dropped on Thursday, as President Trump sent a memo over to William Barr authorizing the AG to begin the process of declassifying documents related to the Obama Administration’s efforts to spy on the Trump campaign, fix the 2016 elections for the Pantsuit Princess, execute a coup on a sitting U.S. president and basically destroy our republic. When asked by one dim bulb reporter what exactly he would be declassifying, the President responded “Everything. We’re declassifying everything.”

Deep State panic ensued.

Bug-eyed Adam Schiff was so panicked that he called the President’s effort towards full transparency in government a “cover-up” and “un-American.” I’m old enough to remember when cover-ups consisted of efforts to hide crucial information from the public. Times change, I suppose.

British Prime Minister Theresa May resigned a few hours after the President sent that memo to William Barr. Even though her intelligence agencies were intimately involved in the effort to construct the fake Steele Dossier and frame members of the Trump campaign throughout 2016, and that May has literally begged Trump not to declassify certain documents, we are to believe the confluence of these events is strictly coincidental. Because, narrative or something.

On Friday, Jabba The Nadler seemed to almost pass out at a press conference with New York Mayor Bill DeBlasio – another guy who is mysteriously running for the Democrat nomination. Trying to destroy a nation of 330 million people is stressful work.

Also on Friday, old Clinton hack Naomi Wolf was humiliated on live radio in London when the host informed her that the entire basis for the book she is promoting is based on her lack of understanding of a British legal term. Her publisher announced on Saturday that it was pulling the book for “re-editing.” Ms. Wolf is one of the rarest of rare Democrats in that she is not running for the party’s nomination in 2020.

Finally, the week ended with MSNBC nitwit host Nicolle Wallace asking Irish Bob O’Rourke the question that is on every fake journalist’s mind: ““Play media critic: What can we do better” to cover his campaign. An obviously flustered O’Rourke had no answer, saying that “it is what it is.”

Why yes, it certainly is.

That is all.

Comey Lashes Out as Another Nadler “Deadline” Comes and Goes

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

Jabba The Nadler keeps setting deadlines, and they just keep getting ignored. – House Judiciary Chairman Jerrold Nadler is very fond of “deadlines.” Unfortunately, he doesn’t appear to realize he has no authority to enforce most of them.

Oh, wait, before we get into this, watch Nadler smack his way through a breakfast interview with Democrat activist John Harwood, if you can stand it.:

For those of you who still like to read stuff, here is the transcript, courtesy of Rush Limbaugh:

NADLER: (restaurant noise) (lips smack) It’s… I mean, the right… (chewing) Ummm… (lips smack) Uh… (smacking lips) (unintelligible) That’s right. (lips smack) But, you know, we fought a — a — a Revolutionary War over that. (lips smack) It affects people’s lives ultimately. (lips smack) And, in fact, (lips smack) he may be… (lips smack) If he is destroying (lips smack) all the norms. (lips smack) and (lips smack) it’s a very different crisis. (lips smack) I think so. (lips smack) I mean, we have to hold hearings (lips smack) and not just on, (lips smack) you know, collusion with the — the Russians. (chewing) I believe that. (lips smack) I do believe that. (glasses clink) (lips smack) Donald Trump is a con man. (lips smack) He lies all the time. (lips smack) (swallows) Say, it’s down the road. I do. (glasses clink) (lips smack) Nixon (lips smack) never (chewing/swallows) never… (lips smack) …to the separation of powers. (lips smack) (glasses clink) I think that’s nonsense. (lips smack)

Ok, grossed out enough now? This man is at the tip of the Democrats’ entire “strategy” spear for 2019. How pathetic is that?

Back to the topic at hand: Thus far in 2019, Nadler has set deadlines on the production of President Donald Trump’s tax returns; on the production of the un-redacted Mueller Report; on the production of all supporting documents to the Mueller Report; on the production of documents from a vast array of Trump White House personnel and associates; on forcing Attorney General William Barr to testify; and twice now on forcing Robert Mueller to come testify live and in person before his Kangaroo Court Committee.

Pretty much all of these “deadlines” have passed without consequence. There is a good reason why that’s the case: Because Nadler is abusing his authority and attempting to assert powers he does not possess in his role as Chairman of the Kangaroo Court.

Nadler contends that all the subpoenas and deadlines and browbeating of potential witnesses through the media are all a part of his committee’s “oversight” authority. This is utter nonsense and he knows it. The Judiciary Committee has oversight authority to ensure the Department of Justice and all of its various arms are carrying out its duties under the law. The Judiciary Committee’s oversight authority does not give Nadler and his evil minions the right to do a re-boot of the entire 2-year, $35 million Mueller Investigation.

It is for this reason that Nadler’s subpoenas and deadlines are being ignored and will continue to be ignored. It is for this reason that Attorney General Barr ignored Nadler’s subpoena a couple of weeks ago, and will probably continue to do so.

It is for this reason that Mueller ignored Nadler’s initial May 15 deadline to testify, and it is for this reason that Nadler was forced to admit on Friday that Mueller will also most likely ignore his May 23 deadline to testify. In fact, it is for this reason that Mueller may never testify before Nadler’s Kangaroo Court at all.

Oh, yeah, there’s another reason why Mueller may never appear before Nadler’s committee, and it is buried all the way down in the last paragraph in the Politico story linked above:

Republicans eyeing a Mueller hearing see it as a chance to press the special counsel on the underlying motivations for the investigation and his reliance on FBI agents who shared anti-Trump text messages.

See, there are 17 Republicans on this Committee, and House rules require Nadler to let them question witnesses too. Does anyone really believe that Robert Mueller is going to voluntarily subject himself to questioning from the likes of Jim Jordan, Matt Gaetz, Louie Gohmert and John Ratcliffe?

Not likely.

Skunk Alert! – You can always tell who’s feeling guilty by looking for who is protesting the loudest. James Comey, our National Teenage Drama Queen, just can’t help himself. Last night, he responded to William Barr’s interview on Fox News – in which Barr never even mentioned Comey’s name – with this tweet:

I titled my piece on Barr’s interview “It’s Panic Time for the Deep State” for a reason. Comey personifies it.

You have the right to remain silent, Mr. Comey. You might want to take advantage of it for awhile.

That is all.

The Week in Review: What, Me Worry?

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

[The week just past as chronicled on the @GDBlackmon Twitter feed.]

The week began with a perfect meme of fake conservative CNN commentator Anna Navarro sounding just like Joseph Goebbels. It only got better from there.

Jessica Fletcher accurately sums up our fake news media’s biased coverage of hostilities between Israel and Hamas, which were instigated entirely by Hamas, though you’d never know it from reading the Associated Press.

The Pantsuit Princess, who stole the 2016 Democrat nomination and coordinated with Barack Obama to try to steal the general election, was still running around claiming the election was stolen from her. Because projection is what Democrats do.:

Meanwhile, at the Met Gala in New York, they were rolling out the Coughing Crook’s new wardrobe as she preps her run for the 2020 nomination.:

Creepy Uncle Joe was fumbling through the Democrat Playbook in South Carolina, doing his best to scare the Black folks with the contemptible lie that Republicans want to “bring back Jim Crow” laws. *sigh*:

But hey, fumbling through the playbook got the old hack a big lead over the field, as The Commie and all the media’s “rising stars” tumbled around in his wake.:

Seriously, does anybody care?:

More layoffs were taking place at CNN, but no one who is actually responsible for the collapse of this fake news channels ratings will suffer.:

Rob Schneider proved that not everyone in the entertainment industry is a vain, vacuous nitwit.:

Former FBI official Kevin Brock summed up the precarious legal position of ex-FBI Director and current Teenage Drama Queen James Comey.:

Nancy Pelosi engages in outright seditionist speech on pretty much a daily basis now.:

No, seriously, what is it?:

True. But amazingly, he’s still not quite as dumb as Kirsten Gillibrand.:

CNN’s Royal Eunuch was shoved out in front of the cameras to assure all those CNN employees who’d just been laid off that they weren’t really laid off.:

Things were going so great with the economy and otherwise for President Donald Trump that the news-fakers at the New York Times decided they needed to reach into their bag of negative stuff and toss some of it out there. It didn’t work. It never does.:

Louisiana Senator John Kennedy was gettin’ real tired of James Comey’s bullshit.:

Greg Budell and I came up with a great new nickname for repugnant California Cong. Eric Swalwell: El Rey de las Gilipollas. Has a catchy ring to it. Swalwell’s so dumb he’ll probably take it as a compliment.:

Whenever she wasn’t talking sedition, San Fran Nan was talking gibberish. Sometimes, she did both at once.:

Jerrold Nadler said we are “in a constitutional crisis,” and it was obvious that everyone in the fake news media had gotten their daily DNC/Media Talking Points Memo well in advance.:

Meanwhile, ostensibly-Republican Senator Richard Burr was busy facilitating the Democrat Party’s ongoing efforts to destroy our country through the Senate Intelligence Committee, which he chairs.:

Ohio Rep. Jim Jordan nails it here.:

Measles epidemics were breaking out all over the world. Welcome to the joys of open borders, folks.:

Oily Rod Rosenstein finally left the Department of Justice this week. Never forget the truth about this skunk.:

If you missed this, you should read it now. Seriously, just read it.:

President Trump’s public approval ratings surged to an all-time high with so much #WINNING going on in our economy…:

…which had the fake news media in a bit of a panic.:

Rand Paul was not happy with Richard Burr. Not happy at all.:

If you don’t follow Titania McGrath on Twitter, you are really missing out.:

With Creepy Uncle Joe dominating the polls, it was a race to the bottom for the Democrat also-rans, never-weres and former “rising stars”.:

Could she take Juan Williams with her? Asking for a friend.:

The Teenage Drama Queen had himself a “townhall” show on CNN Thursday night. He’d have been better off huddling with his defense lawyers.:

Someone really should let the Teen Drama Queen know he has a right to remain silent.:

Jabba the Nadler announced on Friday that Robert Mueller would not be testifying before his Kangaroo Court Committee anytime soon. Most likely, Jabba is getting cold feet because he suddenly realized that Mueller would have to take questions from Republicans, too. That would not be a good thing for the Deep State Jabba is sworn to protect.:

Haven’t heard much from Ann Coulter lately – maybe this is why.:

If only it were true…:

Legend in her own mind Stacey Abrams – who continues to “identify” as the Governor of Georgia despite losing by 55,000 votes – took Trump Derangement Syndrome to new heights. You seriously cannot make this stuff up, folks.:

I never thought anyone could be more tiresome than John “Didja Know My Dad Was A Postman” Kasich. Bill Weld proved me wrong.:

The week ended with President Trump delivering another classic kill shot, this time at current media prom date Mayor Pete.:

No one who sees this mashup will ever be able to get it out of their mind.:

Let Mueller Testify – He’ll Have to Answer Questions From Republicans, Too

Today’s Campaign Update, Part II

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Jabba the Nads has a case of the sads… – Go to this link to Watch Jabba the Nadler pout about his inability thus far to bully Gestapo Chief…er…Special Counsel Robert Mueller into testifying before the raging clown car that is the House Judiciary Committee.

Gosh, why do you think Mueller, who has been all too happy to do the bidding of the Democrat Party in its never-ending efforts to remove President Donald Trump from office for two solid years now might be reluctant to come offer testimony before Jabba’s Democrat-dominated Committee now?

Oh, hey, maybe it’s because of this story about how congressional staffers now suspect that Mueller and his band of merry Nazi thugs probably hired both Christopher Steele and Fusion GPS to help with their Witch Hunt and probably also to participate in the drafting of the final Mueller Report.

Excerpt:

Special Counsel Robert Mueller spent more than $732,000 on outside contractors, including private investigators and researchers, records show, but his office refuses to say who they were. While it’s not unusual for special government offices to outsource for services such as computer support, Mueller also hired contractors to compile “investigative reports” and other “information.”

The arrangement has led congressional investigators, government watchdog groups and others to speculate that the private investigators and researchers who worked for the special counsel’s office might have included Christopher Steele and Fusion GPS, the private research firm that hired Steele to produce the Russia collusion dossier for the Clinton campaign.

They suspect the dossier creators may have been involved in Mueller’s operation, and even had a hand in his final report, because the special counsel sent his team to London to meet with Steele within a few months of taking over the Russia collusion investigation in 2017. Also, Mueller’s lead prosecutor, Andrew Weissmann, had shared information he received from Fusion with the media.

Raising additional suspicions, Mueller’s report recycles the general allegations leveled in the dossier. And taking a page from earlier surveillance-warrant applications in the Russia investigation, it cites as supporting evidence several articles—including one by Yahoo! News—that used Steele and Fusion as sources.

Obviously, Mueller would never have to worry about any Democrat member of the committee asking him to answer questions under oath about an inconvenient subject like that, but guess what? There are Republicans on that committee, too! Go figure.

Those GOP members include such Witch Hunt hawks as Ohio’s Jim Jordan, Texas’s Louie Gohmert, Florida’s Matt Gaetz, and Texas’s John Ratcliffe. You can be certain sure that each and every one of those men would force Mueller to offer an unqualified yea or nay on that specific question. An answer of ‘yea’ would destroy what little credibility Mueller and his evil minions have left and possibly subject them all to criminal inquiry. An answer of ‘nay’ could subject Mueller to future criminal prosecution should this allegation ultimately be proved to be true.

And here’s the thing: Somewhere among the still-classified records of the Mueller Witch Hunt are accounting records, including a full accounting of how that $732,000 was spent. At least, there had better be. If such an accounting does not exist, then Mueller and his minions have committed a fraud on the public and the federal government.

But assuming such a full and complete accounting does exist, then Mueller would answer this question falsely under dire personal jeopardy.

Another excerpt from that story:

Washington-based Judicial Watch suspects Mueller’s office may have farmed out work to the private Washington research firm Fusion GPS or its subcontractor Steele, both of whom were paid by the Clinton camp during the 2016 presidential election. Several law enforcement and Hill sources who spoke with RCI also believe Steele and Fusion GPS were deputized in the investigation.

The government watchdog group has requested that the Justice Department turn over the contracting records, along with all budget requests Mueller submitted to the attorney general during his nearly two-year investigation. It’s also requested all communications between the Special Counsel’s Office and the private contractors it used. A Judicial Watch spokesman said its Freedom of Information Act request is pending. [Emphasis added]

So here’s the other thing: Ultimately, these records are going to be made public, either by the DOJ through the normal course of business, by the court in the Judicial Watch case discussed above, or even by President Trump through his upcoming process of declassifying all the relevant underlying documents that DOJ and the FBI have to this point illegitimately hidden from the public.

If you’re Robert Mueller sitting in his living room easy chair today, would you want to go testify under oath to Jabba’s committee?

Yeah, neither would I.

Some levity before you go…

Watch William Barr troll Jabba and his fellow congressional Democrats here:

And here:

This is not a worried man.

The Democrats Won’t Stop the Madness Until They’re Stopped

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

Several times a week, I get some variation of this question: “When are the Democrats going to stop all of this madness?” – The simple answer, of course, is that they aren’t. The behavior of the leaders of the Democrat Party and their toadies in the fake news media is only going to become increasingly radical and unhinged until they are stopped.

Many had thought – hoped – that their despicable daily behavior would calm down somewhat after the Mueller Witch Hunt had shut down and exonerated President Donald Trump. That obviously didn’t happen, and the Democrats and their media toadies did what they always do: Double-down on deception.

Attorney General William Barr released a 95% un-redacted version of the Mueller Report, and the Democrats screamed “cover-up!” Then he made 99% of the Report available to all Democrat members of congress, and they screamed “cover-up!” Then he spent a total now of more than 20 hours testifying before various congressional committees about it, and the Democrats in the House decided to hold him in contempt for telling the truth and refusing to break the law.

If this doesn’t strike you as normal behavior, that’s because it is decidedly abnormal behavior.

As we’ve said many times before here at the Campaign Update, nothing the Democrats do is normal or organic. Everything they do and say in public is pre-planned, coordinated with their media toadies, and highly scripted, all designed to reflect their narrative of the day. This is why Rush Limbaugh is able to cobble together those hilarious montage clips of dozens of Democrats/talking heads/fake reporters using exactly the same words on some given issue 2-3 times every week. He could do it every day if his staff had the time.

Yesterday’s narrative, for example, was “we’re in a constitutional crisis,” which happens to be true since the Democrats, led by San Fran Nan and Jabba the Nadler, have worked very hard over the past couple of months to create such a crisis out of whole cloth. After his committee held its kangaroo court vote to hold Barr in “contempt of congress” Wednesday afternoon, Nadler promptly rushed to the nearest camera to declare that “we are in a constitutional crisis.”

As if on cue – because it was on cue – every Democrat spokesman on TV, every fake host on CNN and MSNBC, every news anchor on the major networks and every political writer at the major fake newspapers began using those exact words in all of their reporting. This narrative continued through Thursday as well, along with the incredibly stupid non-story about Trump’s losing a bunch of money back in the 1980s/early 1990s, a story he told himself in his book “The Art of the Comeback” and on his TV show “The Apprentice.”

To understand why they behave the way they do, you must understand the Democrat hive-mindset. Simply put, Democrats believe they are entitled to political power. They believe they are smarter than you are, they believe they are more moral and caring and compassionate than you are, and because they believe those things, they also believe they have the right to tell you how to live your lives.

Just a decade ago, they thought they had consolidated that power and the ability to dictate everything you do every day on a permanent basis. They’d just elected America’s Worst Mistake, Barack Hussein Obama, and empowered him with massive majority control of both houses of congress. They had shoved through a massive fake ‘stimulus’ package designed to nothing but expand the scope and scale of an array of federal regulatory agencies, had their EPA working on regulating your drainage ditches and backyard ponds, had their congress extending those 6-month unemployment benefits to a near-permanent entitlement, and were working on a cap and trade system on carbon that would bankrupt whatever was left of Obama’s economy and a bill to nationalize the nation’s healthcare system.

All was bliss and kisses in Democrat fantasy land. It was 2009, and the narrative then, repeated endlessly by all the talking heads and fake reporters, was that the Democrats now had created a “permanent majority” in our country, and America was thus entering its “new normal.”

And here’s the thing that has the Democrat so perpetually enraged today: They believed their own bullshit. (Pardon my language.) They do that all the time, actually – see the whole “Russia Collusion” fantasy play as the latest grand example.

But they are all so enraged today – and become more enraged with each passing hour – because they still believe that bullshit. They still believe they are the chosen ones, the ones to dictate to all you little people out there in Flyover Country, the ones who are entitled to power.

That’s the mindset that led Barack Obama and James Comey and John Brennan and Peter Strzok and Andrew McCabe and Sally Yates and all manner of other high Obama officials to engage in a plot to fix the 2016 elections and then to try and fail to execute a coup d’etat on American soil. They did all of that because they really, truly did believe they were entitled to do it, and that the Pantsuit Princess was entitled to the presidency.

They created Antifa, a violent terrorist organization, in response to Trump’s election because they believe they are entitled to power. They created the Mueller Witch Hunt because they believe they are entitled to power. They’ve created this constitutional crisis because they believe they are entitled to power.

Between today and November 2020, they will continued to ramp up the insanity and violence because they believe they are entitled to power. And after Donald Trump is re-elected, the Democrats and their media toadies will still continue to ramp up the insanity.

Until someone stops them. Until the people who committed all of these bad acts start being prosecuted and going to prison. A lot of them. And if that never happens, if the day never comes when they know they will be subject to prosecution for committing these seditious, treasonous acts against our country, the Democrats and their media toadies will keep ramping up the insanity until they have whipped our nation into another civil war.

These are not people who can be reasoned with, because they are not rational people. They must be defeated and they must be stopped. If William Barr and the Department of Justice are not up to this task, then God help us.

That is all.

Led by Nadler, Despicable House Democrats Hold the Nation Hostage

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

Strategery, Democrat style. – So, first you create a Constitutional crisis by taking a vote of the House Judiciary Committee to hold the Attorney General of the United States in contempt over an absurd claim that he “lied” to the Committee a month ago (he didn’t), and that he won’t release a full, unredacted version of the Mueller Report to congress so the Democrats can leak parts of it to their pals at the New York Times (he can’t do that without committing a felony himself).

After you’ve done that, you send Jabba the Nadler out to tell the breathless, fawning fake news media that the country is in a Constitutional crisis:

Oh, wait, wrong clip. Here you go:

See how that works?  Odd, huh?

Let’s all remember that every step of what has happened with Jabba The Nadler’s committee this year was all pre-planned way back in November, just days after the election. That was when Sr. Editor at The Federalist Mollie Hemingway happened to be sitting across the aisle on an Amtrak train from Jabba, and overheard him having a loud telephone conversation in which he bragged about his and Nancy Pelosi’s and Adam Schiff’s plans to do everything you’ve seen taking place this year. She wrote this prescient piece on November 7, yet all of her “colleagues” in the fake news media continue to pretend this is all taking place organically, because the Democrats just can’t help doing what they’re doing because of the Orange Man Bad in the White House.

None of this is organic. Never forget that everything today’s Democrats do is Kabuki theater designed to deceive their shamefully dimwitted and uninformed voter base. They believe most Americans are hopelessly dense, clueless and uninformed of actual facts, and believe they can just lie to them with impunity as a means of obtaining and maintaining political power. Sadly, they are often correct.

It’s also important to remember these things as well:

  • Barr has already release about 95% of the Mueller Report to the public – Democrats say this is not enough;
  • Barr has already made 98% of the Mueller Report available for Democrat members of congress to view in a secure room without the ability to make copies of it that they could leak to the press. Not one Democrat has taken advantage of viewing it in the 3 weeks that it’s been available;
  • Barr legally cannot make 100% available to the public because some of the material in the Report is protected grand jury information. He knows if he allows skunks and snakes like Jabba and Adam Schiff and Eric Swallwell to have the full report, the full report will appear on the front page of the New York Times and the Washington Post the next morning;
  • The courts have consistently held that grand jury information must be withheld from the public in order to protect the rights of persons who offered testimony but were not pursued by said grand juries. In pursuing this information for the purpose of leaking it to the fake news media, congressional Democrats are actively attempting to harm U.S. citizens who are innocent of any crime.

That’s the reality of this silly situation, which has been intentionally and completely artificially constructed out of whole cloth by despicable congressional Democrats and their even more-despicable buddies in the news media.

Of course, by going down this particular road they have essentially left President Donald Trump with no choice but to exercise his right to executive privilege over not just the Mueller Report, but over any and all documents related to it. This is a right the President could have exercised throughout the abusive Mueller Witch Hunt, but chose not to do so in the name of cooperating with the Chief of the American Gestapo.

That the President now feels the need to exercise that right as it relates to the House of Representatives tells us exactly how abusive the despicable Democrats have become in their desperate effort to smear Attorney General William Barr.

One final reminder: The Democrats and their media toadies are desperate to smear Barr in the public consciousness because Barr has repeatedly promised to get to the bottom of the Obama Administration’s massive spying activities targeted at the Trump Campaign throughout 2016. They all know that if he succeeds in that quest, people are going to prison.

So this is not just a fight for raw political power: For many of these despicable people, it is a fight for survival. These are the reasons the Democrat Party is basically holding our nation hostage.

It is a fight they must lose if our nation is to maintain a system of real justice.

That is all.

Just So Hard to Imagine Why AG Barr Won’t Testify Before Nadler’s Committee

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

After his testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee adjourned Wednesday afternoon, Attorney General William Barr’s office announced he is not willing to testify before the House Judiciary Committee on Thursday, stating that:

“Unfortunately, even after the attorney general volunteered to testify, Chairman Nadler placed conditions on the House Judiciary Committee hearing that are unprecedented and unnecessary,” Kupec said. “Chairman Nadler’s insistence on having staff question the attorney general, a Senate-confirmed Cabinet member, is inappropriate.”

No doubt that’s the main reason for Barr’s refusal. But, after the circus show trial the Senate Democrats displayed on Wednesday, can anyone blame Barr for not wanting his office to be subjected to what would inevitably be an even more detestable and repugnant display by House Democrats the very next day?

 

You also can’t help wondering if the fact that the House Judiciary Committee is chaired by a Star Wars villain, Jabba The Nadler, who has zero ability to conduct his committee meetings in anything remotely resembling an orderly process, had something to do with this decision.  Perhaps Barr’s staff got a load of the circus that took place in Jabba’s committee while their boss was doing his duty over on the Senate side of Capitol Hill:

All that’s missing there is Princess Leia in a bikini.

Want to know why the Attorney General of the United States is refusing to testify tomorrow? After watching that clown show, can there really be any doubt at all?

Radical Dems Prepare to Follow the Mueller Roadmap to Oblivion

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

Hey, remember what happened to the House Republicans after they tried to impeach Bill Clinton? No? Cool, let’s do the same thing with Donald Trump! – That’s basically where House Democrats are right now. The whole purpose of Robert Mueller’s Witch Hunt from the beginning was to first enable the Democrats to take control of the House in the 2018 election and then to give them a road map for impeaching Donald Trump.

But that was all supposed to be done in the context of Mueller finding ample justification to actually charge the President with outright collusion with the Russians during the 2016 campaign, and/or for obstruction of justice, neither of which outcome Mueller was able to deliver. But that doesn’t matter to Democrat politicians – they spend every day making up and saying stuff that just isn’t true, after all. It’s how they make their livings.

So, Mueller didn’t really give us that roadmap? No problem – we’ll just make like he did. Thus, as soon as Attorney General William Barr released Mueller’s report to the public last Thursday, the calls from various Democrat members like Mad Maxine Waters and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez for the House to immediately begin impeachment hearings began going out. Statements cautioning against moving in that direction by House Majority Whip Steny Hoyer and Bug-eyed Adam Schiff fell on deaf ears.

The cacophony of crazy voices only continued to grow louder over the Easter weekend, to the point where San Fran Nan felt the need on Monday to first send a letter to members stating her position on the matter, and then convene an evening conference call that lasted for an hour and a half. The end result of her efforts was to essentially give lunatic committee chairs like Jabba The Nadler and Elija Cummings carte blanche to continue their own Witch Hunts to see if they can drum up some smoking gun that Mueller couldn’t find during his 22 months of searching.

San Fran Nan’s letter is an object lesson the pure demented status of today’s Democrats. While she does not support moving ahead with immediate impeachment hearings, she obviously felt the need to placate her lunatic caucus by including red meat like:

“While we do not have the full report and the underlying exhibits, including the grand jury testimony, two of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s conclusions stand out: one, the “sweeping and systematic” Russian interference in our elections; and two, the President’s repeated efforts to thwart cooperation with the independent prosecutors in their pursuit of justice.”

This is pure, unadulterated idiocy. First, if there was indeed “sweeping and systematic” Russian interference in our elections, that all happened while Barack Hussein Obama was serving as President, and he did literally nothing about it.

Not only did Obama not do anything about it, he made a famous speech in which he even ridiculed the entire notion that it was even possible to “rig” a U.S. election. On October 18, 2016, Barack Hussein Obama his own self said this:

“But the larger point I want to emphasize here is that there is no serious person out there who would suggest somehow that you could even — you could even rig America’s elections, in part, because they are so decentralized and the numbers of votes involved.

There is no evidence that that has happened in the past or that there are instances in which that will happen this time.”

Donald Trump was a candidate who had never held any elected office in his life in 2016, when all of this “interference” in our elections by Russian agents supposedly took place. Robert Mueller and his 19 Clinton/Obama loyalists CLEARED Mr. Trump of doing anything to support or collude with those Russian activities. So, of the Democrats want to plow this particular field yet again, I’d imagine the President is sitting in the Oval Office smiling and thinking “Oh, please, by my guest.”

Pelosi’s second false point about “the President’s repeated efforts to thwart cooperation with the independent prosecutors in their pursuit of justice” is simply another Democrat load of fresh, smelly horse manure. Yes, the section of the Mueller report on Obstruction contains all sorts of gossip and unprovable innuendo contending that the President “thought about”, “considered”, and “lashed out” about all sorts of things, but the simple fact of the matter is that he did not do one damn thing to actually interfere with Mueller’s Witch Hunt.  Nothing, zero, zip, nada, bupkiss.

Even more compelling in the President’s defense, he in fact granted Mueller unprecedented access to his staff and executive branch documents, encouraged full cooperation from his people and never one time exercised his full constitutional rights to executive privilege.

But again, the actual truth does not matter a whit to Democrats these days. Their whole thought process centers around what they can make up, and more importantly, what can they and their toadies in the fake news media make the American people believe?

Yes, it’s despicable. Yes, it’s demented. Yes, it is the very essence of depravity.

But hey, these are Democrats we’re talking about here, so does any of it really surprise you? I’m guessing the answer to that question is a resounding ‘NO’.

That is all.

The Week in Review: The Trump Tide Begins to Turn

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

[The week just past as chronicled on the @GDBlackmon Twitter feed.]

The week began with sellout actor Robert DeNiro threatening Trump supporters that he’d never forget what we’ve done the last few years, whatever that means. Yeah, well, we’re never gonna forget he got paid $20 million for making “Dirty Grandpa” and “The Intern.”:

But things only got better from there. Here is a worker who does, I kid you not, the BEST. TRUMP. IMPRESSION. EVER!:

Slick Willie and the Pantsuit Princess got heckled in their fake “home state” of New York, and all was right with the world.:

Jabba The Nadler jumped in to defend The Enemy Within, Ilhan Omar, in her latest anti-America remarks controversy.:

Cher previews the lyrics to her upcoming new hit sing, “MY CITY CAN’T TAKE CARE OF ITS OWN!!!!”:

…and the next morning’s Campaign Update was all about that Cher tweet, which was the most awesomest tweet in the history of awesomely hypocritical tweets.:

Why “global warming” isn’t really a thing anymore…:

It was mid-day Monday, and Notre Dame was burning.:

Meanwhile, “Morning Joe” was off his meds again. Or maybe he was on them, it’s hard to tell.:

Irish Bob O’Rourke was running low on meaningless sophistries to recite to his mind-numbed followers, so he decided to poll them about what they want to hear, so they could give him a bunch more things to regurgitate back to them on the campaign trail. He is seriously running the most vacuous campaign in Democrat history, and that is the party that gave us two previous campaigns from Joe Biden.:

AOC is actually correct about this, but the truth about Creepy Joe Biden won’t sit well with San Fran Nan.:

San Fran Nan was trying to get AOC and The Enemy Within under some control, and her efforts did seem to have some dampening effect on their behavior as the week wore on. It won’t last for long, though.:

Well, that sure doesn’t fit the narrative. Not at all.:

Because he plans to “pay” for it by ordering the Treasury to print trillions of new dollars every year, devaluing the currency in the process. Same way he plans to pay for free college and all his other mindless socialist ideas. It’s the Venezuela model.:

Eric “Because the Government has nukes” Swalwell entered the presidential race, solely to play the role of the Democrat Party’s stalking horse on gun control.:

Andy McCarthy had a great piece on the Obama Cabal’s spying operation on the Trump Campaign.:

Yikes. Running Roy Moore for that senate seat again would be like Texas Democrats running Wendy Davis as their gubernatorial candidate again.:

Here’s my Campaign Update on San Fran Nan’s efforts to control her radical Kiddie Caucus by putting them in semi-time out.:

Tea Biscuits everywhere stand highly insulted by this tweet from the inimitable James Woods.:

Irish Bob O’Rourke was too busy riding a skateboard in his sheep suit.:

The slow turning of Fox News continues…:

Our fake news media barely noticed, but realeasing the Mueller Report wasn’t the only important action taken by Attorney General William Barr this week.:

CNN’s real competition isn’t Fox News or MSNBC, it’s TLC and The Food Network.:

Gosh, I wonder what tipped him off?:

Best, most prescient meme of the week here.:

Brit Hume tipped me off to one of the best things I’ve read all year. You should read it, too.:

I’m old enough to remember when journalists were trained to bitch and moan whenever public officials refused to hold press conferences. Now, they bitch and moan when the Attorney General holds one. It’s all so despicable.:

All carbon tax proposals are nothing more than money-grabbing scams.  Every one of them. Remember this key fact of political life – it will serve you well in the future.:

Tim Young is the hammer, liberals are his nails.:

I’m always happy to be of service to others.:

And just like that, here we go.:

President Trump offers the most concise summary of the 400-page Mueller Witch Hunt Report.:

….aaaaannnnnndddd the celebration at the White House begins.:

The media reaction to Barr’s release of the Mueller Report was highly-predictable, and oh, so entertaining.:

….they were still melting down the next day, to no one’s surprise.:

Their behavior was so abhorrent that they’d even lost Geraldo Rivera, for crying out loud.:

Chris Cuomo looked like a deer in the headlights.  Ok, he always looks like a deer in the headlights, but still…:

Meet the new #NeverTrump talking points, same as the old #NeverTrump talking points. So tiresome.:

Fauxcahontas was on the warpath, sending out smoke signals demaning scalps!:

….aaaannnnnddd reliable old NBC News led the charge with the new officially-approved joint Media/Democrat talking points, as the goal posts shifted yet again.:

And finally, Mitt Romney saw what he thought was a chance to advance his own presidential ambitions by jumping in with the Democrat/Media propaganda complex, because of course he did.:

What an amazing week it was, huh?

Happy Easter to you all!

Barr’s Release of the Mueller Report Closes Act I of Trump’s Three-Act Play

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

Today, the curtain closes on Act I. – Attorney General William Barr will release what the Washington Post describes as a “lightly redacted” version of the Mueller Report this morning, and Democrats are already going berserk. Because of course they are. They’re Democrats – that’s what they do.

Prominent congressional Dems like Jabba the Nadler, Mad Maxine Waters, Da Nang Dick Blumenthal and Bug-Eyed Adam Schiff all rushed to the nearest TV camera last night to squeal about the fact that Mr. Barr will hold a press conference prior to releasing the report, something every other AG in American history would also have done. The Democrat talking points – naturally echoed by prominent fake journalists like the New York Times’ Maggie Haberman on Twitter – contend that “the Mueller Report should speak for itself” and that the AG is attempting to usurp congress’s solemn duty to interpret the report for the American people.

Meh.

Here is the real reason why the Democrats and their fake media co-conspirators are going nuts about Barr’s press conference: Because oily Rod Rosenstein will be standing there right next to him in full endorsement of the process Barr has taken with the report. Also because Barr will no doubt inform the American people on live television that both Rosenstein and Mueller his own self participated in making the proper redactions in the report before it became public.

The Democrats and media who have spent the better part of three years outright lying every day about their Russia Collusion fantasy can’t stand to have this open, transparent conveyance of real information about Mueller’s report. After all, Rosenstein was their guy, the fixer, the man who appointed Mueller in the first place for no justifiable reason, the enabler who wrote not one, but two scoping memos authorizing Mueller to take his most-likely illegal Witch Hunt in any direction he wanted to pursue.

Oily Rod was the guy who held those previous Friday afternoon press conferences defending the various indictments of Russian ham sandwiches, doing his best to pretend that the spending of a couple million dollars creating a bunch of fake Twitter accounts was somehow an existential threat to the greatest and strongest nation ever conceived by mankind. Rosenstein was the guy who refused to intervene early on when it became obvious Mueller was stacking his staff with a bunch of corrupt Obama/Clinton activists rather than a balanced team of professional lawyers, the “supervisor” who never lifted a finger to curb Mueller’s rampant, heinous employment of Gestapo-like tactics.

For two solid years, Rod Rosenstein was the man who the lying Democrats and fake news media assured all Americans was a stand-up guy, a true hero who was doing his best to rid the Republic of the Bad Orange Man in the White House. To have this same man, this ostensible leftist hero, now stand before the assembled TV cameras in tacit endorsement of Barr’s interpretation of the Mueller Report and acknowledgement of his and Mueller’s own roles in making the redactions from it in order to protect the rights of American citizens who were interviewed during the grand jury processes and other perfectly valid reasons amounts to a complete and total debunking of the fake media’s fake narrative on this fantasy.

Democrat politicians and fake journalists are the equivalent of political vampires: Transparency is their sunlight; truth is their garlic; they recoil from honesty exactly the same way Count Dracula recoils from the Christian Cross.

Regardless of the squealing from the collection of Star Wars bar scene characters who currently chair committees in the House of Representatives, Barr will hold his presser at 9:30 ET and release the redacted report at 11:00 ET today, because that is what he has promised to do. This is a man who has made a habit of doing exactly what he promised congress he would do in his confirmation hearings since taking office, a real Attorney General who is playing everything strictly by the book. If that makes congress unhappy, so be it – Barr doesn’t appear to much care what politicians of either party think.

The positive thing for the fake news media is that CNN and MSNBC will temporarily regain some of the massive audience loss they have suffered over the past month, since their Russia Collusion fantasy came up a crapper. After all, the Mueller report was written by a bunch of Democrat activists, and will certainly portray President Trump in the most negative light possible, so we will have a couple of weeks of media and Democrat-fed hysteria over the revival of their Russia Collusion corpse before the dead story gets overtaken by other, real current events.

For real Americans who actually love their country, the best part about finally getting to this day is that it in reality closes the curtain on Act I of what will ultimately become the three-act play of the Trump presidency. The curtain will next come up on Act II, which will begin with the issuance of the report by DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz on the rampant abuse of the FISA process that took place throughout 2016 and into 2017, as Obama officials within the DOJ and FBI furiously tried to prevent Trump from winning the election and then attempted to stage a coup d’etat after he took office.

From there, Act II will proceed to the revelation of what, if anything, Salt Lake City U.S. Attorney John Huber has been doing over the last 18 months, since former AG Jeff Sessions claimed he had assigned Huber to investigate all the FBI/DOJ Cabal’s shenanigans during the 2016/17 time frame. After that revelation, Act II may or may not proceed to prosecutions of some or all of the Cabal’s participants. That will again be up to Mr. Barr.

Act III will dawn in August 2020 with the re-nomination of President Trump by the GOP and the nomination of one fraud or another by the Democrats in a race that will result in Trump’s re-election. That final act will continue through the entire four years of Trump’s second term in office, and will conclude with a final scene of hundreds of pussy-hat-wearing activists and minor Hollywood celebrities screaming and crying on the National Mall on January 20, 2025, exactly as the play opened on January 20, 2017.

This unlikely tragicomedy was apparently all preordained, and no amount of bluster and squealing from the stuck pigs who run the Democrat Party and our fake news media can change the inexorable progression of its plot lines. So the best thing the rest of us can do is just sit back and enjoy the spectacle of it all.

After all, are you not entertained?

That is all.

The Week in Review: The Perils of Biden and AOC

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

[The week just past as chronicled on the @GDBlackmon Twitter feed.]

The week began with AOC getting history wrong – because she always gets history wrong – and just went downhill from there.:

A parade of women had just started to emerge from the closet to complain about Creepy Joe Biden’s fondling of them, but the reliable lapdogs at the Washington Post were already on the job providing cover for him.:

On Monday, AOC kept herself busy surveying the price of food at La Guardia Airport while waiting to fly on a carbon-spewing airliner – you know, the kind of thing she plans to eliminate with her Green New Deal. (Hint: She got the price of the pastry every bit as wrong as she got the history of the 25th Amendment.):

As the second woman came forward to complain about Creepy Joe Biden, it wasn’t real hard to predict what was still to come.:

It was April 1, and our erstwhile ex-FBI Director and current Teenage Drama Queen thought he would play an incredibly narcissistic practical joke. Nobody laughed.:

Robert Wilson posted a fantastic graphic here. Note the expansion of that natural gas line over the last 15 years – it’s why your air is so much cleaner today than it was 25 years ago.  Fracking says, “You’re welcome, America!”:

As President Donald Trump threatened to close the southern border with Mexico due to the ongoing invasion from Central America, our nation’s fake news media focused on what was really, really, really important to vegans and snowflake freaks everywhere.:

The hypocrisy of the lunatic left, part 29,282.:

With the Mueller report issued and exonerating President Trump, the evil minions at CNN found their already-terrible ratings in free fall. How would this cable joke survive without the captive audiences in our nation’s airports?:

Cool. No use wasting any time.:

While women continued to come forward to complain about his handsy habits, Joe Biden continued to get a free pass from the fake news media related to his real scandal.:

Meanwhile, the news-fakers over at CBS News were working diligently to paint human traffickers in a glowing light. You seriously cannot overstate that a raging dumpster fire our national news media truly is.:

So…damn…awesome.:

So. Damn. Awesome, Part II from the same speech.:

It’s a clown car. Literally, a car filled with circus clowns, led by Jabba the Nadler.:

Can you blame her?:

What in the hell is wrong with Sen. Mike Lee that he would vote against this? You can’t write it off to his supposed Libertarian “principles,” since the filibuster rule was enacted in the 1830s by racist southern Democrat slave owners as a means of preventing the senate from abolishing slavery. The crap this guy and Rand Paul pull on big votes like this is maddening.:

If you don’t follow the hilarious Babylon Bee on Twitter, you are really missing out on the fun.:

No comment necessary.:

And, as Wednesday drew to a close, the news fakers at the New York Times did their duty to support the Democrat narrative by rolling out yet another heinously fake story. Because of course they did.:

Speaking of the New York times, its’ fake “journalists” need to broaden their horizons.:

Oh, hey, we’re up to seven now…:

Despite all the media disinformation and misinformation, the Trump 2020 landslide kept building …:

…and building…:

…and building.:

You go first, Jake.:

Just when you thought the Democrat 2020 presidential field could not get any worse, the most disgraceful pathological liar in congress proves you wrong.:

Now, if we could just ban the U.S. media from covering the British royal family…:

Seriously, where have these news fakers been?:

Look up the word “slimy” in your Funk & Wagnall’s dictionary, and you’ll find a photo of this guy next to it.:

The perfect Twitter meme…:

The perfect Twitter video meme…:

…and I’m just going to end it with this.:

The Democrats are Ready to “MAVA” – Make America Venezuela Again

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

How stupid are Democrat voters? – Impossibly stupid, apparently. With a textbook socialism-caused collapse of a formerly prosperous nation taking place right here in our own hemisphere for all to see, the Democrat voter base here in the U.S. appears intent upon taking our own country down that same doomed-to-fail path.

It isn’t just the elevation of mindless nitwits like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez to congress, nor is the movement to self-destruction limited to support for an array of socialist presidential candidates, from Pete Buttigeig to Kamala Harris to The Commie. Democrat voters are also electing socialist thugs at the local level.

The latest example comes in Chicago, where, after the holding of this week’s runoff elections, the city council will now be home to as many as six new socialist aldermen. One of those winning socialists, a thug (because all socialists are thugs by their very nature) named Andre Vasquez, looked at the supporters assembled at his victory celebration Tuesday night and exclaimed, “Take a look around the room, we did this!”

That’s pretty much what Hugo Chavez said when he was first elected el Presidente in Venezuela in 1998. At that time, that country was a thriving, vibrant country blessed with incredible, growing wealth from its gigantic oil reserves. Today, just 21 years later, its residents are starving and dipping their buckets into sewers for drinking water.

Good luck with that, Chicago!

Speaking of thug politicians… – Chuck Schumer’s tireless efforts to prevent the proper staffing of the Trump Administration are going to become a lot harder to carry out now that Mitch McConnell and the GOP Senate majority went all nuclear upside his head on Wednesday.

The move by Republicans will result in the application of limited debate time for district judge appointments and sub-cabinet-level officials nominated by President Trump. Democrat thugs have used the pre-existing rule that allowed for them to tie up the senate for 30 hours of floor time on each nominee to prevent the Trump Administration from becoming properly staffed, and to build a huge and growing backlog of district court openings that now numbers 130.

Schumer, who, while serving as Senate Majority whip under Harry Reid, aggressively worked to enact Reid’s first “nuclear option” move when the Dems still had the majority in 2013, naturally took to the floor with a hypocritical screed against McConnell’s move, saying at one point that he was “so sorry that my Republican colleagues have gone along with Sen. McConnell’s debasement of the Senate.”

Honestly, how do these Democrats sleep at night? That’s actually a serious question.

And speaking of thug Democrats… – meanwhile, over in the House of Representatives, Democrat thugs were throwing out subpoenas like mardi gras revelers in New Orleans throw out cheap strands of beads. And these subpoenas are roughly equal in value, come to think of it.

The House Judiciary Committee, chaired by the despicable Jabba the Nadler, voted along party lines to authorize the corpulent Chairman to issue subpoenas for the “full Mueller report” in unredacted form, along with its supporting documents. They won’t get it, because such a subpoena would require Attorney General William Barr to break a multitude of federal laws.

The main concern is that federal law has always prevented the public release of grand jury material, and the Mueller report is chock-full of such material. Nadler and Bug-eyed Adam Schiff went on TV to promise they would never, never, ever allow such damaging material to be leaked, but we all know that that promise would last for about 30 seconds before it all started appearing in the New York Times and Washington Post.

So, that cat won’t flush, and the Democrats know it. They’re just doing this to keep the whole “Russia Collusion” fantasy alive through November, 2020.

Next, the House Ways and Means Committee, chaired by Massachusetts Democrat Richard Neal, threw out a demand to the IRS for all of President Trump’s tax returns for 2013 through 2018. That also ain’t gonna happen, and the Democrats know it – it’s just another effort to keep that particular sham alive through the 2020 elections.

Kevin Brady of Texas, who chaired Ways and Means in 2017-18, slammed the Democrats’ grotesque lurch into political thuggery: “This particular request is an abuse of the tax-writing committees’ statutory authority, and violates the intent and safeguards of Section 6103 of the Internal Revenue Code as Congress intended.”

That’s all true, but the Democrat Party as a whole no longer cares about such things. All they care about is the acquisition and maintenance of political power, patiently working towards the day when they once again control all levers of federal power as they did in 2009-10, during which they succeeded in nationalizing and destroying our nation’s health insurance system.

Should they ever achieve that goal again, this even more radicalized socialist Democrat Party will make 2009-10 seem like a walk in the park. They’re ready now to go full Nicolas Maduro on us, make no mistake about it.

I used to tell friends ‘vote for Democrats at your own risk,’ but I can’t even go there anymore. Because these days, a vote for any Democrat is a risk to all of us.

That is all.

Six More Years of “President Donald Trump”? Magic 8-ball says “Most Likely”

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

Hey, when he’s right, he’s right.  – At a rally in Michigan last night, President Donald Trump (I never tire of typing those three glorious words) put the exact right label on the Democrats’ refusal to drop the whole Russia Collusion fantasy in the wake of the end of the Mueller “investigation,” referring to their ongoing propaganda campaign as “ridiculous bullshit.”

Here’s the full quote:

“The Democrats have to now decide whether they will continue defrauding the public with ridiculous bullshit, partisan investigations, or whether they will apologize to the American people and join us to rebuild our crumbling infrastructure, bring down the cost of health care and prescription drugs … help us fix our broken trade deals,” he said to the crowd.

Be honest:  One of the things that makes you a little bit uncomfortable about President Trump is that he so often expresses exactly what you were thinking but were reluctant to blurt out yourself. Coming as I do from a family of Texas over-cussers, I can think of no better way to describe the ongoing behavior of Democrats like Adam Schiff, Jabba the Nadler, Irish Bob O’Rourke and Eric Swalwell than to call it “ridiculous bullshit.” Because that’s what it is.

Personally, I appreciate the President for going ahead and saying it so I would feel justified myself repeating it several times in this morning’s Campaign Update. Because it is ridiculous bullshit – it just is.

Speaking of Trump’s rally in Michigan… – Democrats who poo-poo the President’s rallies as being insignificant are quite frankly whistling past the graveyard. Yesterday’s rally in Grand Rapids – a city of less than 200,000 – attracted more than 32,000 people. At one point, the line waiting to get into the Van Andel Arena stretched for more than a mile. As usual, the thousands who could not gain admittance into the facility stood outside and watched on giant TV screens.

This is not a one-time fluke – this happens over and over and over again at every rally the President holds. The Democrats and their fake news media flunkies want you to believe that this is a very unpopular POTUS, but his 50% approval rating in the Rasmussen survey tells another story, and his average public approval rating is higher than Ronald Reagan’s was at this point in his first term in office.

An unpopular, failing president would have a hard time attracting major crowds like this one. But these rallies have actually grown larger and more intense over time, not less so. Just as with the big Obama rallies in 2008, they are in fact a harbinger of a very strong candidate, an incumbent whose re-election chances are growing stronger by the day.

I don’t like to hyper-focus on polls since they are so unreliable, but the new Quinnipiac poll out this week it a good indicator of what an uphill climb the Democrats truly have in 2020. Here’s a link to The Hill’s report on this poll.

First, as The Hill notes in its blaring headline, Pete Buttigieg has “surged”, now getting 4% support in the Democrat horse race. Second, Fauxcahontas is mired way down in a tie with the 37 year-old mayor of South Bend, IN. Ouch. Things are just not working out for Little Mouth Always Running, are they?

Third, Irish Bob O’Rourke has very predictably moved past a fading Kamala Harris to capture 3rd place, pulling 12% to Harris’s 8%. Fourth, Creepy Joe Biden now holds a 10-point lead over the Commie at 29-19.

None of those results are in any way surprising to anyone who has been paying attention to the dynamics of this race, which is admittedly still in its very early stages.  Harris has thus far been a stumbling, bumbling disaster of a candidate, a prime example of someone whose time in the public spotlight came well before she was ready for it.

The Commie has his base of support, but finds it getting peeled away by all the other commies in the race, like Buttigieg, for example. It’s like he’s dying a death by a thousand cuts, as all the other craven candidates keep stealing his issues and policy positions.

Biden hasn’t even formally announced his candidacy yet, but continues to attract fairly strong early support on name recognition and his association with Obama. That Obama-glow will steadily wear away as the race goes on, and we will probably see “Peak Biden” as his polls surge in the week after his formal announcement, and then slowly but steadily fade as the long race drags on and the demented Democrat voter base wake up to who he really is.

So, none of that is any surprise at all.  But here is what is a surprise buried deep in the bowels of this poll:

Just 57% of the self-identified Democrats and Democrat-leaning registered voters polled in this survey say they will not vote for President Trump regardless of who the Democrat nominee is in 2020. That is an extraordinarily low percentage from this segment of society, meaning as it does that fully 43% of “Democrats and Democrat-leaning registered voters” are open to the idea of a second Trump term in office.

Ooof.

Get used to saying President Donald Trump, Democrats, because you most likely have 6 more years to do so.

That is all.

Democrats Change Impeachment Talking Points, Fake Media Parrots Them

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

The Democrats have new talking points, not a new strategy, on impeachment. – In case you missed it, I told you yesterday evening that San Fran Nan has changed her talking points on impeachment, and went onto explain why it’s pretty much certain that she is lying (hint: her lips are moving).

In case you missed Pelosi’s comments and don’t want to click the provided link, here they are:

“I’m not for impeachment. This is news. I haven’t said this to any press person before. But since you asked, and I’ve been thinking about this, impeachment is so divisive to the country that unless there’s something so compelling and overwhelming and bipartisan, I don’t think we should go down that path because it divides the country. And he’s just not worth it.”

Of course, the fake news media, in its collective duty to serve as the propaganda wing of the Democrat Party, is treating Pelosi’s new script as if it were the 10 Commandments handed down from on high, and repeating them across the interwebnets and your TV screens this morning. Even some conservative voices are buying into the doddering Speaker’s new act, and treating her highly-qualified statements as if they’re some sort of “win” for President Donald Trump.

They aren’t.

To be fair to those fellow conservatives, it isn’t just Pelosi reading from a new script here. Bug-eyed California Congressman Adam Schiff, who chairs the House Intelligence Committee, echoed Pelosi’s remarks when questioned by CNN’s Manu Raju: “I think given how polarized the country is right now and given how the Republican members of Congress have prostrated themselves right now in front of the president, in the absence of very graphic evidence, it would be difficult to get the support of” the Senate.

But execrable New York Congressman Jerrold Nadler, whose own House Judiciary got the impeachment ball rolling by sending out 81 subpoenas last week, gave away the game when he told Raju “She laid down a number of conditions – it has got to be bipartisan, the evidence has to be overwhelming – which is what I’ve been saying.”

Get it yet? This is not a “win”, it’s not the Democrats backing away in fright from what polls show would be an extremely unpopular move to impeach the President. What it is is the Democrats, startled that the testimony by their “star witness” Michael Cohen was simply rejected by the vast majority of the public – including an overwhelming percentage of self-identifying Independents – now taking one step back and switching to a more cautious set of talking points.

Ok, I guess you could call that a moral victory of sorts.

But that’s all this is, folks – Democrats do this all the time. They and their media agents will stick with this set of talking points for a couple of weeks and then Schiff will start issuing subpoenas of his own. Then the talking points will change again, but the process and the strategy will remain the same.

The Democrats engage in this kind of deceitful behavior because they think you are a bunch of mindless sheep – and they are sadly right about the 37% of you who believed a word Michael Cohen said – and because they know the media is in their pocket and thus would never dream of holding them accountable.

Sorry to be repetitive here, but this is a learning moment for everyone. I know it is hard for many people to wrap their minds around exactly how abjectly dishonest the Democrat Party and national news media have become. Hard to believe this could have happened in this country.

But it has happened in this country, and once you accept that reality, everything they do and say makes perfect sense.

That is all.

Pelosi Claims She’s Against Impeachment, But Her Actions Say She’s Lying

The Evening Campaign Update
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

She’s against impeaching President Donald Trump until she’s for it. – Hey, know how to tell Nancy Pelosi’s lying? Her lips are moving!  Hah-hah-hahhhhhh!

Ok, yeah, it’s an old joke. Sadly for the nation, where San Fran Nan is concerned, it’s 100% true.

Monday afternoon, she told the Washington Post in an interview that she is opposed to moving to impeach President Trump, “unless (isn’t there always an “unless” or a “but” whenever any Democrat makes a “promise”?) there’s something so compelling and overwhelming and bipartisan” that it becomes unavoidable.

Pelosi is further quoted by The Hill thusly: “Impeachment is so divisive to the country that unless there’s something so compelling and overwhelming and bipartisan, I don’t think we should go down that path, because it divides the country.”

This is all just another lie from the most dishonest Speaker since Texas’s own Jim Wright held the office 30 years ago. All one must do to understand Pelosi’s lie in this instance is to spend 2 minutes analyzing the coordinated efforts the various committee chairmen who she appointed are lining up to do literally nothing over the next 18 months other than try to build a case for impeaching the President.

The execrable Jerry Nadler got that ball rolling a week ago when his House Judiciary Committee sent out subpoenas to the President and no fewer than 81 associates. Adam Schiff and Elijah Cummings, who chair the House Intelligence and House Oversight Committees, respectively, will follow with a raft of their own subpoenas by the end of this month.

The whole point of this tri-committee Witch Hunt is to build a case for impeachment that becomes “compelling and overwhelming” enough to provide congressional GOP squishes the cover they want to join in an effort to remove Mr. Trump from office. That’s what San Fran Nan’s “unless” phrase mentioned above is all about.

She’s against impeachment right now, but no one should think that in any way means she plans to lift a finger to stop it. To the contrary, she made the committee appointments she made specifically to get the most shameless partisan hacks possible atop those three committees.

That’s the truth. This is who Nancy Pelosi is, and how she operates.

That is all.

Why 2020 Will End With a Trump Landslide

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

Donald Trump is going to be re-elected in a landslide in 2020. In reality, the Democrats are behaving as if they already know their fate is basically sealed. That’s what all these congressional investigations are really all about – a panicked effort to keep portraying a duly-elected President as if he’s a criminal in the wake of the impending end of the failed Mueller Witch Hunt.

Those investigations will fail, just as Mueller has failed, to “get” the President, because the President is not a crook. Jerrold Nadler and his House Judiciary Committee sent out 81 subpoenas on Monday as the opening salvo in an effort to dummy up a case of “obstruction of justice” against Trump. This is a case that Mueller and his band of Clinton/Obama hacks has been trying to construct for almost two full years now, and utterly failed.

Are we really to believe that a congressional committee with far less investigatory power and fewer resources is going to be able to succeed where Mueller failed? Please.

In a few weeks, Bug-Eyed Adam Schiff and the Democrats on the House Intelligence Committee will be kicking off their own witch hunt effort to try to dummy up an “abuse of power” case against Mr. Trump. Mueller and his hacks have also gone down that road over the last 22 months and discovered a big, yellow “Dead End” sign.

Also along around the first of April, Elijah Cummings and the Dems on the House Oversight Committee will start their own witch hunt attempt to paste together a case on “public corruption.” Again, Mueller and his fellow American Gestapo members have been there, failed at that.

But the Democrats will go down these various dead-end paths anyway, and keep them all alive right through Election Day 2020 for one simple reason: President Donald Trump is running an extraordinarily successful presidency. The economy is humming, the stock market is booming, retirement funds are growing, ISIS has been utterly destroyed, and America is at relative peace in the world for really the first time in this century.

The Democrats hate all of that.

Even worse, the Trump presidency has been economically fantastic for Hispanic and Black Americans, with both demographic groups now experiencing all-time record low unemployment and high wage growth. The same is true for women, whether they realize it or not, and polls show Trump’s approval ratings rising among all those critical demographic groups.

So, the Democrats fully understand that they cannot run the 2020 campaign on issues and have any hope at all of winning. Thus, they devised this highly-coordinated plan of attack involving three House committees shortly after the 2018 election, exactly as they devised the whole “Russia Collusion” fairy tale in the days following the 2016 election.

Those of us who read Mollie Hemingway’s writings at The Federalist knew all this was coming last November 7, just three days after the election. That was when she posted her piece summarizing the conversation he had overheard Nadler loudly conducting in an Amtrak rail car they shared that day. This is all pre-planned, well-coordinated with key propagandists in our fake news media in order to ensure maximum coverage and reinforcement in traditional and social media.

This is who the Democrats are – it is what they spend pretty much all their waking hours doing. Nothing they do is about policy or what’s best for America or our people – everything they do is about the acquisition and maintenance of political power.

Here’s why none of this will work: Because the Democrats have no credibility with the public outside of their own, hate-blinded voter base. The three chairmen conducting these witch hunts – Nadler, Schiff and Cummings – are three of the most toxic partisan hacks in the entire congress.

Valid or not, Robert Mueller at least had the initial presumption of impartiality in the public’s mind, thanks to completely inaccurate and glowing media coverage. But these three Democrat thugs have already been written off by all but he most highly-partisan Democrat voters as having no credibility whatsoever.

Nothing any of these people say or “find” during the course of their witch hunts is going to have the slightest impact on the independent voters who really matter. To the contrary, those same independent voters will be driven away by the inevitable over-reaching and rank demagoguery to which various Democrat members of these committees will regularly resort. We already saw that happen in Cummings’ hearing with Michael Cohen.

All of which is why, as I told you way back in February 2017, Donald J. Trump is destined to be a two-term President, and a truly great President.

2020 is going to be a landslide.

That is all.

Thanks to Donald J. Trump, America’s Time for Choosing has Come

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

Life at the tippy-top sure does increase the old carbon footprint. – Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the dim-witted freshman Democrat from the Bronx, or somewhere, took incoming fire from the leering press over the weekend when it was revealed that she isn’t exactly walking her Global Church of Climate Change talking points.

Fresh off of saying “Climate Change” is a “national emergency” that mandates the elimination of gasoline-powered cars and proclaiming that “We’re like, ‘The world is going to end in 12 years if we don’t address climate change.’ And, like, this is the war; this is our World War II,” it turns out that the ex- and possibly future-bartender has been guzzling the gas at pretty much the same rate as all of her high-carbon-footprint colleagues. The New York Post reported over the weekend that her campaign ran up bills on gas-powered cars totaling almost $30,000 even though her campaign headquarters was just 138 feet from the nearest New York Subway station.

Even more puzzling, her campaign racked up 66 airline flights totaling more than $25,000 even though she was running in a very geographically-compact district. Where were all these people flying to and from, and what campaign-related mission were the accomplishing?

Ocasio-Cortez responded to the report on her Twitter account – because of course she did – thusly:

So, hey, all you little people: She’s just “living in the world.” Life at the “tippy-top” is good, and her plans involve putting a lot of people to work to force YOU to reduce YOUR carbon footprint – they have nothing to do with how the elite that she is now a part of would continue to live once they have banished those of you who survive the economic disaster they create to live in your new 19th-century existence.

One thing’s for sure: It didn’t take her long to memorize those Al Gore/Leonardo DiCaprio talking points.

Now for something completely gross. – Here’s something in everyone’s future if Ocasio-Cortez and her society-destroying minions have their way: A company in Spain is now manufacturing pukey-looking “vegan steaks” with a 3-D printer. Stock up on the ribeyes and briskets while you still can, folks, because this is where these lunatics want to force us all to go. There is not enough ketchup on earth to cover up the after-taste of that slop.

Hey, another 1-percenter enters the race. – Ex-Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper, a former oil and gas geologist who made his fortune as a pioneer of Colorado’s micro-brewery industry, announced really, really early this morning that he’s going to run for the 2020 Democrat presidential nomination. Because, you know, if Jay Inslee (who?) and this Pete Buttigieg (wut?) guy can run, why not a guy with a chain of beer pubs?

Makes perfect sense to me.

They were just kiddin’ about that whole “Russia Collusion” thing. – If you thought that the end of the Robert Mueller witch hunt would mean the Democrats would allow the nation to return to some sense of normalcy and regular order in its national politics, well, I want a double shot of whatever it is you’ve been drinking.

The end of the Witch Hunt over the Russia Collusion fantasy concocted by the DOJ/FBI cabal only means that the Democrats in congress move onto the next phase of their 4-year effort to deconstruct this President and presidency. Thus, the House Judiciary Committee chaired by despicable New York congressman Jerrold Nadler will issue no fewer than 60 subpoenas seeking documents and testimony in its own Witch Hunt, which will attempt to dummy up a claim of “obstruction of justice” by President Donald Trump.

Nevermind that Mueller has already spent months trying to create that case and failed, nevermind that the whole fantasy is based on the President’s firing of Teenage Drama Queen James Comey, a man who every Democrat in Washington had publicly advocated firing – none of those things matter. What matters to the Democrats is keeping up the appearance of chaos in Washington, because they know it is literally their only hope of beating Trump in the 2020 election.

If they allow a return to normal order, this President would plow his way to a landslide victory over whichever candidate emerges from the Democrats’ field of miscreants, hacks, fake Indians, ageing punk rockers and beta-males that would rival Reagan’s thrashing of Walter Mondale in 1984. So there will be no normal order in Washington, folks. Instead, there will be 18 months of subpoenas, kangaroo courts and disgraceful displays of demagoguery, all of which will be treated seriously by the Democrat lapdogs who infest our nation’s fake news media.

There’s nothing any of us out here in Flyover Country can do about it, other than to be sure to turn out to vote for Trump in 2020, so you might as well just sit back and enjoy the spectacle.

Some of you have wondered why it is that I like to say that I never tire of typing the three glorious words “President Donald Trump.” Well, this is why. This exact thing. He has quite literally driven the entire Democrat Party stark, raving mad. Don’t misunderstand – Democrats were nuts long before Donald Trump ever thought about running for president. But in the past they felt the need to at least put up a pretense of normalcy. They weren’t anything like you and me, but they felt the need to make like they were in order to attract your votes, which is why people who were otherwise good and decent and fairly intelligent could justify voting for Democrats.

But now the mask is completely off. The pretense is gone. The Democrat Party, over just the past 30 days, has happily revealed itself to be the party of killing babies, the party of open borders, the party of socialist fascism, the party that is perfectly willing to do everything it can to protect woman abusers and guys nicknamed “CoonMan” if they hold elective office with a “D” next to their name.

It is no longer possible for good and decent people to cast their votes for Democrats. As Ronald Reagan famously said, “the time for choosing is upon us,” and there is no longer any place to hide.

Glorious.

The Beto Mania “Victory” Tour Goes On, Only Without That “Victory” Part

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Beto Mania Update:  Looking to burnish his street cred among demented Democrat voters, Irish Bob O’Rourke met with an anti-Semitic racist in New York over the weekend. Yes, friends, if you want to be the Democrat Party’s presidential nominee, you must kiss a lot of highly distasteful rings, none moreso than the many, many rings of lifelong race-baiter and perennial MSNBC host Al Sharpton.

Sharpton became just the latest stop on the Irish Bob “I’m Ready Even Though I’m a Loooooooser” victory tour of grand Democrat Poobahs and big Muckety-Mucks as he preps the January announcement of his candidacy.

He already met with America’s Worst Mistake (Barack Hussein Obama) a few weeks ago, and now Sharpton. We can only wait with bated breath to see who will be the next stop on the tour: Will it be Louis Farrakhan? How about prominent Democrat fundraising specialist Harvey Weinstein?

If Irish Bob should decide that Farrakhan and Weinstein are just a tad too toxic, how about the de facto owner of the Democrat National Committee, George Soros?  I would suggest billionaires Tom Steyer – the “environmentalist” who made his fortune investing in coal – or media mogul Mike Bloomberg, but hey, they’re both planning to mount their own campaigns. So reaching out to them might be a little uncomfortable for all involved.

Of course, if Irish Bob really wants sound advice on how to rig, er, “win” the Democrat nomination, he could just travel on up to Chappaqua and have a sit down with the Fainting Felon. He could butter her up by bringing a bag filled with $250,000 in cash as a “contribution” to her “foundation”, two cases of vodka and maybe also bring along a couple of nice hospital gowns to add to her speaking tour on-stage wardrobe.

If it all sounds a little unsavory and demeaning, well, these are Democrats we’re talking about here, not normal people.

Paris Burning Update:

French boy President Emanuel Macron made a televised speech in which he blamed the current civil unrest in his country on 40 years of national “malaise.” So, he’s apparently transitioning from the second coming of Marie Antoinette into the second coming of Jimmy Carter. Neither one is a very good look, is it? At least Carter managed to avoid having his head chopped off, so there is that.

In his speech, the child President made a series of profound statements, such as:

“When violence is unleashed, freedom ends.”

“I take my share of responsibility.”

“I might have hurt people with my words.” and the coup de gras…

“I would ask all employers who can, pay an end-of-year bonus to their employees.”

Oh, yeah, that’ll work.

This guy is hopeless.

Speaking of hopeless, (quoting the late, great Hans Gruber)”I give you the F…B…I.” – During the course of his congressional testimony last week, former FBI Director and current Teenage Drama Queen James Comey used the phrases “I don’t know,” “I don’t remember,” “I can’t recall” or some variance thereof 245 times, which is even more than Barack Obama generally refers to himself in the first person in an hour-long speech.

In other words, it’s a lot. A lot to not remember, recall or know for a guy who spent years heading up what used to be the nation’s premier law enforcement agency but is now an anti-American tool for anti-American political interests.

Writing at the Wall Street Journal on Monday, James Freeman compiled a terrific piece detailing some of the many amazing things Comey, in his job as FBI Director, claims not to have known.  Among those are:

  • The FBI’s process for initiating a counterintelligence investigation;
  • Who initiated the FBI’s 2016 counterintelligence investigation targeting the Trump Campaign;
  • Who Christopher Steele is;
  • That Christopher Steele worked for Fusion GPS;
  • The fact that the Clinton Campaign funded the fake “Trump Dossier”, which was compiled by Steele through Fusion GPS;
  • The fact that the “Trump Dossier” was unverified when it was used by his agency as the basis for obtaining multiple FISA warrants to spy on the Trump Campaign, Trump Transition, and Trump Administration;

and on, and on, and on. In other words, just another day for the nation’s most despicable Deep State skunk.

Go read Freeman’s piece – it’s well worth your time.

Wellllllll, you know, that’s a very, very good question.:

Jerry Nadler may not be worried about this, but dozens of his colleagues probably are. Over the last 20 years, more than 260 settlements totaling $17 million have been paid out of a congressional slush fund – at taxpayer expense – to keep members of congress out of hot water of one form or another.  Many of those settlements were to dispose of complaints involving sexual harassment.

Isn’t that “hush money?” If not, what is the distinction? After all, when one of these suits has been settled, the person filing the complaint has been required to sign a non-disclosure agreement in order to get his or her money, exactly the same process Donald Trump allegedly engaged in with the playmate and the porn star. So, if it’s an impeachable offense when then-private citizen Donald Trump supposedly did it, why isn’t it an impeachable offense when a sitting member of congress does it?

So many questions, so few answers coming from our fake news media and its Democrat masters.

That is all.

Get Ready for the Coming Impeachment of Donald J. Trump

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Mueller is “closing in” – on what, no one seems able to say. – Last week was the week when Robert Mueller started “closing in”. That’s what everyone in our fake news media kept telling us, anyway, so it must be true, right? Well…ok.

Supposedly, if all the talking heads on CNN and MSNBC are to be believed – which they most certainly are not – the sentencing memo related to Michael Cohen and the court filing in Mueller’s case against Paul Manafort contain all sorts of damaging allegations related to President Donald Trump. They are, in fake media parlance, the smoking guns that, for the 10,457th time over the last 3 and a half years, spell the “beginning of the end for Donald Trump.”

All this impeachment giddiness had bug-eyed Adam Schiff talking about President trump serving prison time on “Face the Nation” and despicable Jerrold Nadler promising to shut down all investigation into Democrat wrongdoing during 2016 when he takes control of the House Judiciary Committee come January. It was like Democrat Party Mardi Gras all weekend.

The problem for the Democrats is, last week’s events don’t really mean what they want us all to believe they did. The Cohen sentencing memo, filed by the Justice Department’s Southern District of New York (SDNY), is all about campaign finance and playmates and porn stars and hush money supposedly paid to them during the 2016 campaign. The same attorneys in the SDNY who refused to prosecute Barack Obama for more than $2 million in illegal campaign contributions taken in by his 2012 campaign are now supposedly going to indict a sitting president for $280,000 in payments that can only be classified as “campaign contributions” via very tortured legal logic.

The SDNY attorneys face several problems here, chief among them being that Justice Department rules dictate that no sitting president can be indicted while he’s in office. D’oh!

Problem number two is that, even if these hush money payments can be classified as campaign contributions, the Candidate himself has the ability to contribute an unlimited amount of money to his own campaign. The U.S. Attorneys suddenly concerned about the “sanctity” of campaign finance rules say he failed to report those “contributions,” which would be a technical violation supposedly committed by a candidate who did not even know they WERE contributions.

You’re going to send a sitting POTUS to jail for that? Really?  Good luck with that.

Problem number three is that, if Donald Trump is re-elected to a second term, the 5-year statute of limitations on campaign finance violations will have expired in 2021, 3 years before he leaves office.

Now, will the craven Democrats in the House of Representatives try to use the SDNY’s tortured logic as a reason to impeach President Trump? Sure, they will, but in doing so they will have to explain why this is an impeachable offense but Obama’s massive violations were not. Good luck with that, too.

The Manafort filing is just another Big Bag of Mueller Nothing, the kind of which we have seen in myriad leaks and filings and ham sandwich indictments from his office for more than 18 months now. Nothing about the “collusion” fantasy, nothing supporting any potential charge of obstruction of justice, nothing supporting anything remotely related to what Mueller was supposed to be looking into. But it did provide a lot of fodder for talking head panels on CNN and MSNBC to assassinate the President’s character and argue for impeachment, which is exactly what it was intended to do.

There is no doubt that President Trump is a man of low moral character, especially when it comes to his conduct in his married life. There is also no doubt that pretty much everyone who voted for Candidate Trump was well aware of this when they voted for him. After two full years of screaming first about their “Russia Collusion” fantasy and then about their “obstruction of justice” fantasy, the Democrats and our fake news media are going to try to force Mr. Trump from office because he might have, maybe, sort of, potentially violated campaign finance laws to cover up affairs.

Make no mistake about it, there will be impeachment hearings beginning early next year, for the simple reason that the Democrat Party stands for nothing else at the moment. The Party’s candidates did not campaign on any policy agenda this year, other than doing nothing more to change the failed Obamacare law and doing nothing to change our failed immigration system. The Democrats have always been really big on doubling down on abject failure, after all.

So, that’s what the next two years of American history are going to be – a long, painful slog in which the Democrats and their fake news media agents do pretty much nothing but try to reverse the results of the 2016 presidential election. There will be no major legislation passed through congress, which is fine with me, given that about 90% of the un-American legacy of Barack Obama has already been done away with in one form or another.

There will be no real budget bills, as the nation goes back to the decade of Harry Reid, in which the government was funded by an ongoing series of continuing resolutions. There will be no more tax cuts – or significant tax increases – no real efforts to reform immigration or healthcare or climate regulations or anything else at the federal level as the Democrat House and Republican Senate play a 24-month game of policy chicken and do little other than raise money for the 2020 campaign.

At some point – probably mid-to-late-2019 – after a seemingly endless series of nationally-televised impeachment hearings by multiple House committees chaired by despicable creeps like New York’s Jerrold Nadler, the Democrats in the House will successfully “impeach” President Trump in a party line vote. Some time after that, the Republicans in the Senate will refuse to remove the President from office, again on a purely party line vote.

It will be an instant replay of 1999, only with the party roles reversed. Then the election campaigns will gear up and dominate the rest of 2019 and all of 2020, as the voters decide who to punish for the two-year fiasco.

It’s key to remember that, after impeaching Bill Clinton in 1999, the Republican Party paid dearly at the polls in 2000, losing their six-year House majority in the process. With President Trump’s public approval ratings holding stubbornly firm at pretty high levels for a president at this point in his first term in office, the Democrats pursue this impeachment strategy at their own risk.

And pursue it they will.  Because they are otherwise bankrupt as a Party.

That is all.
