Thursday News Roundup: AOC is Caught in Capitol Lies as Kerry is Caught in Climate Lies

Hey, remember how AOC has been going around claiming she “almost died” during the Capitol Riot on January 6? – Remember how she told Ted Cruz that he had “tried to have me murdered” during that riot? Remember her story just this week about how a member of the Capitol Police burst into her office and looked at her in a “threatening” manner?

Yeah, those were all lies. Just like pretty much everything else she ever says.

It turns out that the best evidence shows that AOC wasn’t even in the Capitol Building when things were going down.

From the story at JustTheNews.com: 

Following Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’ emotional Instagram retelling of the events of Jan. 6, in which she said she feared for her life, an analysis of the events by the RedState news website points out the New York Democrat wasn’t in the Capitol Building at the time of the riot.

“If she was in her office, she was in the Cannon Building which is nearby, but a different building,” the RedState report reads. “Many didn’t get the logistics and just assumed that she was in the Capitol building.”

South Carolina Rep. Nancy Mace, who like Ocasio-Cortez has an office in the Cannon Building, adjacent to the U.S. Capitol Building, also suggested her House colleague’s account of the incident is exaggerated.

“My office is 2 doors down,” Mace tweeted. “Insurrectionists never stormed our hallway. Egregious doesn’t even begin to cover it. Is there nothing MSM won’t politicize?”

The congresswoman said Wednesday that the RedState report was “manipulative.”

“This is the latest manipulative take on the right,” she wrote on Twitter. “They are manipulating the fact that most people don’t know the layout the Capitol complex. We were all on the Capitol complex – the attack wasn’t just on the dome. The bombs Trump supporters planted surrounded our offices too.”

[End]

Note: No “Trump supporters” planted any bombs surrounding her or anyone else’s offices.

What AOC is doing in manipulating the Capitol Riot for political profit is no different than her attempt to milk the whole “Kids in cages” hoax a couple of years back. Who can forget this?:

The woman is an actor. That’s all she is. Well, that, and she’s possibly the most shameless liar to ever hold congressional office, which is saying a hell of a lot.

Funny Twitter Meme of the Day:

Yes, because the French prefer to limit their orgies to no more than 75 participants:

Your Global Church of Climate Change PSA for Today – Remember, kids, the edicts issued by your betters in the globalist elite class about minimizing your carbon footprint to help prevent “climate change” apply only to you, and not your betters in the globalist elite class.

Our latest illustration of this reality comes from China Joe Biden’s new “Climate Czar”, John Kerry, who admitted yesterday that he much prefers to take his private, carbon-spewing jet to all of those global climate conferences where he receives his many awards for being so concerned about the global climate:

Holy crap. From the story at Fox News:

President Biden’s recently appointed climate czar, John Kerry, took a private jet to Iceland in 2019 to receive the Arctic Circle award for climate leadership, Fox News has learned.

Kerry defended his high-pollution ride at the time, calling it “the only choice for somebody like me who is traveling the world to win this battle” in an interview obtained by Fox News. The incident had not been previously reported in the American press.

Ólafur Ragnar Grímsson, who led the Arctic Circle Roundtable, criticized Kerry for traveling to the event via private jet, Icelandic outlet RUV reported.

Kerry received the award, which took the form of an iceberg sculpture, for being “a consistent voice pressuring the American authorities to commit to tackle environmental matters,” the outlet noted.

Icelandic reporter Jóhann Bjarni Kolbeinsson confronted Kerry at the event over his choice of transportation, asking: “I understand that you came here with a private jet. Is that an environmental way to travel?”

Kerry responded by claiming that it was the only way.  “If you offset your carbon — it’s the only choice for somebody like me who is traveling the world to win this battle,” Kerry said.

“I negotiated the Paris Accords for the United States,” he added, referring to the multilateral climate agreement signed while he was secretary of state under President Obama.

[End]

Note: When Kerry talks about how he “offsets” his carbon spewing, he is no doubt referring to the buying of “carbon credits,” the globalist scam through which Al Gore has become a near-billionaire. If America had anything resembling an honest and curious news media, he would be pounded with demands by reporters to release the records of his purchase of what would have to be millions of dollars of carbon credits to offset the hundreds of flights he has taken on his own private jet.

You can be certain that no one in the U.S. media will pose that uncomfortable question to him. Because that’s what any self-respecting Nazi-style propaganda operation would do.

The election issue remains alive in Arizona. – Despite the best efforts of the Democrats and their toadies in the corrupt news media to make it all just go away, controversy over the November 3 election results remains alive in Arizona. There, stalwart Republicans in the state senate have sponsored a resolution this week holding the members of the Maricopa County Board of Supervisors in contempt for refusing to comply with an audit of the county’s election results.

Maricopa County is home to Phoenix, and has been plagued by hundreds of allegations of election fraud since last November. The refusal by the Board of Supervisors to comply with a simple audit of the balloting only serves to raise suspicions, obviously. The resolution, sponsored by all 16 members of the Senate GOP majority, now subjects members of the board to arrest and jailing if they continue to refuse to comply.

From a story at JustTheNews.com:

The entire contingent of 16 Republicans in the Arizona state senate has sponsored a resolution to hold the five members of the Maricopa County Board of Supervisors in contempt for not complying with subpoenas pertaining to equipment, ballots and more related to the 2020 election.

The resolution may raise the possibility of arrests. It calls for the state senate president to “take all legal action pursuant to section 41-1153, Arizona Revised Statutes, to enforce the subpoena.” That section of Arizona law states: “A witness neglecting or refusing to attend in obedience to a subpoena may be arrested by the sergeant-at-arms and brought before the senate or house upon authority of a copy of the resolution signed by the president or speaker, and countersigned by the secretary or chief clerk.”

Since the chamber’s 14 Democrats will probably not support the resolution, all 16 Republicans will need to vote for it in order for it to pass when the chamber eventually votes on it, according to the Arizona Mirror.

[End]

In Arizona, truly, the fun never ends. At least, not yet.

That is all.

Sunday News Roundup: The ‘Great Reset” is Coming, and John Kerry Says You Voted For It

Ok, who knew that China Joe Potato Head Biden’s entire COVID-19 plan  was to make sure that radical Islamic terrorists being held at Gitmo got the vaccine before 98% of American citizens? Raise your hand. Anyone? – Yes, that was the news on Friday, anyway, which honestly seemed to me to be so par for the course for any Democrat administration that I chose not to even mention it.

But others did mention it – many, many others. So many, in fact, that the Pentagon announced late Saturday that it was “reconsidering” this latest bone-headed scheme against the American people before it got off the ground:

From a story that you know the leftist slugs at The Hill hated to report:

The Pentagon announced Saturday that it is pausing a plan to offer coronavirus vaccines to prisoners at Guantanamo Bay after facing a wave of pushback.

“No Guantanamo detainees have been vaccinated. We’re pausing the plan to move forward, as we review force protection protocols. We remain committed to our obligations to keep our troops safe,” tweeted Pentagon spokesman John Kirby.

The reversal comes just days after the Defense Department said it would offer coronavirus vaccines to detainees at Guantánamo Bay, the notorious prison in Cuba, with the rollout possibly coming as soon as next week. The plan was to offer the 40 detainees at the base the first of two doses of the available vaccines “on a voluntary basis.”

It is unknown how many coronavirus cases have occurred on the military base, but the pandemic has presented an obstacle to holding military legal proceedings, including in the case against Khalid Shaikh Mohammed, the man who is accused of being one of the masterminds behind the attacks on U.S. soil on Sept. 11, 2001.

The plan had been met with fierce pushback, particularly by Republican lawmakers, before it was paused, especially in light of vaccine shortages across the country.

“It is inexcusable and un-American that President Biden is choosing to prioritize vaccinations for convicted terrorists in Gitmo over vulnerable American seniors or veterans,” Rep. Elise Stefanik (R-N.Y.) said prior to Kirby’s Saturday announcement.

[End]

Thanks to Cong. Stefanik for putting it so bluntly and accurately. “un-American” is this administration’s middle name.

ummmmm…uhhhhh….ummmmm…I’m gonna have to circle back to you on that.:

May be an image of 1 person and text that says 'HOUSE THE WASHINGTON THE WHITE HOUSE @MarkDice'

Hat tip to Mark Dice on that hilarious meme.

The Great Reset is upon us, and you little people must all be miserable so that your Elite Ruling Class can achieve fairness. – That was the essence of the message delivered by French President Emmanuel Macron in Davos, Switzerland this week. Speaking to the annual gathering of the Illuminat, errr, World Economic Forum, Mr. Macron blamed capitalism for all the unfairness in the world, and said that the way to fight COVID-19 is for governments to make sure everyone is equally miserable.

No, really, that’s exactly what he said if you really read his exact words. Here’s an excerpt from a story at Breitbart:

At the World Economic Forum’s (WEF) virtual Davos Agenda summit on Tuesday, French President Emmanuel Macron declared that in the wake of the Chinese coronavirus modern capitalism “can no longer work”.

Appearing before a question and answer session conducted with ‘Great Reset’ architect and founder-chairman of the WEF, Klaus Schwab, Mr Macron said that while capitalism has historically driven down poverty globally, he claimed that it came with the cost of furthering inequality.

“We will get out of this pandemic only with an economy that thinks more about fighting inequalities,” Macron said.

“The capitalist model together with this open economy can no longer work in this environment,” he added.

The French president pronounced that capitalism has resulted in a “deep moral and economic crisis” in which “hundreds and thousands of people throughout the world had this feeling of losing their usefulness.”

[End]

Do you see it? Macron’s thesis here is that the evil “capitalism” that has worked to cut the global poverty rate by 80% over the last 30 years has left “hundreds of thousands of people” around the world with a “feeling of losing their usefulness.”

So, Macron’s “solution” – and the preferred solution for everyone in attendance in Davos, trust me – is for governments to use COVID-19 as their vehicle to eliminate “capitalism” and institute brutish fascism/socialism so that the world’s other 8 billion people can come to feel equally useless. That really is exactly what he is saying there.

And hey, he’s already getting his wish in Democrat-run states and cities around the United States today, where despicable Democrat governors and mayors have used COVID-19 as an excuse to implement rule by brutal edict, putting millions out of work and destroying half of all small businesses in the country. That’s all happened in just the last 10 months. Think of what the ruling elites can achieve towards the advancement of world socialism if they can get the WHO and Anthony Fauci to keep this scam going for another couple of years.

It didn’t get a lot of notice at the time, but in early December John Kerry told us all what was coming during a panel discussion hosted by the World Economic Forum. Macron’s words, along with what has happened since make Kerry look like the prophet of doom he truly is.

Here’s an excerpt from a December 3 story at The Hill:

Internationally, the Great Reset has already been backed by influential leaders, activists, academics and institutions. In addition to the World Economic Forum and United Nations, the Great Reset movement counts among its the International Monetary Fund, heads of state, Greenpeace and CEOs and presidents of large corporations and financial institutions such as Microsoft and MasterCard.

But in America, most policymakers – including President-elect Joe Biden – have been relatively quiet about the Great Reset, leaving many to speculate what a Biden administration would do to support or oppose this radical plan.

There has been some evidence suggesting that Biden and some of his biggest allies back the Great Reset and would attempt to impose it on the United States. But Biden and his team have never explicitly stated that America would be involved — that is, until now.

At a panel discussion about the Great Reset hosted by the World Economic Forum in mid-November, former Secretary of State John Kerry – Biden’s would-be special presidential envoy for climate – firmly declared that the Biden administration will support the Great Reset and that the Great Reset “will happen with greater speed and with greater intensity than a lot of people might imagine.”

When asked by panel host Borge Brende whether the World Economic Forum and other Great Reset supporters are “expecting too much too soon from the new president, or is he going to deliver first day on this [sic] topics?,” Kerry responded, “The answer to your question is, no, you’re not expecting too much.”

“And yes, it [the Great Reset] will happen,” Kerry continued. “And I think it will happen with greater speed and with greater intensity than a lot of people might imagine. In effect, the citizens of the United States have just done a Great Reset. We’ve done a Great Reset. And it was a record level of voting.” 

Kerry later argued that the Great Reset is necessary to slow the “climate crisis” and that “I know Joe Biden believes … it’s not enough just to rejoin Paris [the Paris Climate Accords] for the United States. It’s not enough for us to just do the minimum of what Paris requires.”

[End]

Understand what he’s saying there in the passages I put in bold: In “electing” China Joe to the presidency, Americans just voted for the Great Reset. Biden, or rather his handlers, are fully bought into the strategy to bring about the Great Reset in America, and that is what we see the administration doing to us each and every day.

Every action Biden has taken so far at the direction of his elder-abusing handlers has been designed to eliminate your rights and to impair and shrink the U.S. economy in order to gradually ramp up the misery suffered by the population as a whole. The invasion that is about to begin again at our southern border in the coming days is also a part of this strategy – to stress and strain our country’s resources to the breaking point so that the resulting economic misery can be blamed on “capitalism” and used by the Democrats in p0wer to affect even more misery and ensure it impacts each and every one of us in the name of “fairness.”

That’s what the Great Reset is, and it is coming to you – in the words of John Kerry – “with greater speed and with greater intensity than a lot of people might imagine.” Best of all, according to Kerry, you voted for it.

Imagine that.

That is all.

Kerry to Laid-Off Oil Workers: Move to China!

The haughty and very, very French-looking failed Presidential candidate John Kerry did his part in advancing the Biden Administration’s “Make China Great Again” agenda at today’s White House press briefing. Asked by a fawning fake reporter what he would say to oil industry workers who correctly believe their jobs are being eliminated by China Joe Potato Head Biden’s mushrooming assault on the domestic energy business, Kerry responded with this:

“What President Biden wants to do is make sure that those folks have better choices… That they can be the people to go to work to make the solar panels.”

Here’s the problem: The overwhelming majority of solar panels used in the United States are in fact made in China. Matter of fact, 7 of 10 largest solar manufacturers in the world are headquartered in the communist nation, and 2 others are Japanese companies.

Even worse, well over 90% of the components that go into the handful of panels that are assembled in the United States are manufactured in – guess where? – China!

So, basically, John Kerry, China Joe’s “Climate Czar” or whatever fake office they’ve made up for him, is in essence telling oil workers who the President has just thrown out of jobs, “too bad, but there’s lots of work in the solar industry in China.”

You just could never make these despicable people up if they did not already exist. Never in a million years.

Tuesday News Roundup: The GSA Concedes, but Trump and His Legal Team Fight On

Emily Murphy, Director of the General Services Administration, conceded on Monday that it is likely that Joe Biden/Kamala Harris “won” the November 3 election, and authorized the beginning of the formal transition process.

This administrative move means basically nothing in the grand scheme of things. The election remains up in the air and the Trump legal team, which scored wins in Michigan and Pennsylvania yesterday, will “keep up the good fight,” as the President himself said in a tweet:

The President’s statement that Murphy has been “harassed, threatened and abused” is no doubt true given that we’re talking about Biden-voting Democrats and their despicable media toadies here.

So, Biden and his team will start getting their briefings, and the transition process will move ahead, and it will amount to just more DC Swamp Kabuki Theater signifying nothing. The same Kabui Theater took place for both George W. Bush and Al Gore during the weeks-long controversy and recounts in Florida that followed the 2000 election.

This is what our country does.

Boy, are Bernie Sanders and AOC shocked and disappointed. – China Joe Potato Head Biden continues to build out his incoming globalist-infested team. If Sanders, AOC and Elizabeth Warren thought they were going to pressure Biden and Designated Successor-Elect Harris to construct a cabinet and group of “Czars” filled with revolutionaries,  they are no doubt thoroughly disappointed by what they have seen thus far.

On Monday, Biden’s team of handlers named former Federal Reserve Chairman Janet Yelen to be his Treasury Secretary. He also named the very French surrender monkey John Francois Kerry to be his “Climate Czar.” So, basically, he’s rebuilding the Obama team that gave us the Paris Climate Accords, the Iran Nuclear Agreement and 1% economic growth into perpetuity.

Other than the whole re-focus on the Church of Global Climate Change religion, this is not at all what Democrat Party radicals had in mind. Hell, Fauxcahontas wanted to be Treasury Secretary herself. Imagine the warpath she is cutting this morning. Yelen in that post will represent very little change in status quo other than a steadfast opposition to cutting taxes.

Kerry gets to resume his preferred lifestyle, that of a wandering envoy who gets to live in the finest hotels Central Europe has to offer and negotiate global agreements that surrender American wealth and national security, all funded and paid for by the U.S. taxpayer. You can expect to see scenes of Lurch meeting with Iranian counterparts at outdoor cafes in Paris, Davos, Budapest and Vienna very soon.

Some key wins for the Trump Team. – Meanwhile, despite all of its turmoil, the Trump Legal Team scored victories in two states yesterday:

From a story at PJMedia:

The Michigan state legislature has agreed to hold a hearing about election irregularities in the state. In addition to this development, a federal appeals court has agreed to an expedited election review in Pennsylvania.

“We are grateful to Michigan House lawmakers for not rushing to certify inaccurate election results,” Trump campaign legal adviser Jenna Ellis told Just the News. “We are confident they will share the same concerns once they see the extent of the outright fraud and disregard for the law that happened in Michigan and across the nation. Every American should want to know the truth.”

Ellis also responded to the U.S. Third Circuit Court of Appeals ruling that Trump’s “motion for emergency expedited review is granted at the direction of the court.”

“We are grateful to the Third Circuit for accepting an expedited review,” Jenna Ellis said.

The news comes on the heels of federal judge Matthew W. Brann dismissing the Trump campaign’s lawsuit against Pennsylvania Secretary of the Commonwealth Kathy Boockvar on Saturday.

“There was no legal reason to deny our amended complaint, other than pure politics and judicial activism,” Ellis continued. “This was an Obama-appointed judge whose opinion was rife with errors. We hope the appellate court will recognize that and properly give us our day in court. The American people deserve for us be able to bring forward our witnesses and evidence showing election fraud — this is at the heart election integrity and fundamental fairness.”

[End]

As discussed here yesterday, the need for speed in these cases is crucial, and the Pennsylvania case is hurrying right along towards a date with the Supreme Court, where all of this will ultimately be decided. It is key that the Supremes have time to render their decisions in whatever cases they agree to hear before December 14, when the Electoral College will meet to cast the votes of the electors, none of which will be mailed in.

So, good news all around in those two cases.

The COVID Panic Porn is coming at us hot and heavy now. – Take a look at these clips from CNN and MSNBC as examples:

So, eat alone, and if you don’t eat alone, at least turn your music down so nobody sings. Hooboy.

Meanwhile, Quantas Airlines and the German government provide more stark warnings of what all of this panic porn ultimately leads to:

You don’t have to believe me – Just look at what’s already happening in Oregon:

From the Washington Times story:

Oregon Gov. Kate Brown wants residents to call the police on their neighbors over violations of the state’s latest coronavirus shutdown, which includes a six-person limit on in-home gatherings.

The temporary “freeze,” which went into effect Wednesday, restricts indoor at-home and social gatherings to six people from no more than two households, with no exceptions for Thanksgiving dinner get-togethers.

In a Friday virtual interview with KGW-TV, Ms. Brown agreed that Oregonians should contact authorities if they see their neighbors hosting more than six people.

“Look, this is no different than what happens if there’s a party down the street and it’s keeping everyone awake. What do neighbors do? They call law enforcement because it’s too noisy,” the Democratic governor told KGW. “This is just like that. It’s like a violation of a noise ordinance.”

Those committing infractions could face misdemeanor penalties of up to 30 days in jail, fines of up to $1,250, or both, according to the governor’s executive order.

[End]

To paraphrase the fascist Gov. Brown: look, this is no different than what Hitler urged German citizens to do when they discovered Jews hiding from the Gestapo and the SS.

If you think this is as draconian as these aspiring Central American banana republic dictators are going to get, well, you are in for one hell of a surprise.

That is all.

Friday News Roundup: Biden Pulls a John Kerry and the BLMFL Opens its Season to Boos

Never Forget. – Today is the 19th anniversary of 9/11, and New York City Democrats have banned events to memorialize that awful day in their city this year.

Let’s all of us do the right thing and take a moment to remember.

Homepage | National September 11 Memorial & Museum

CORONAPANIC UPDATE – More than 20,000 college students returning to campus this fall have now tested “positive” for the China Virus.

The number of college students who have been hospitalized for the China Virus? 0. That is a big, fat ZERO.

Open the schools, you cowardly, rancid governors.

This concludes your CORONAPANIC UPDATE for today.

According to CBS News, it was the fans who were “controversial.” – The BLMFL opened its season last night, with the Kansas City Chiefs playing the Houston Texans. BLM messaging decorated both endzones and the player uniforms. The entire Texans team refused to come out of their locker room for the playing of the National Anthem, and several Chiefs players knelt in protest of the American flag.

The 17,000 or so socially-distanced fans in the stands roundly booed all of this nonsense through their useless masks, and also booed both teams as they came out to midfield for the opening coin toss.

So, what part of all of this was “controversial” in the eyes of the news-fakers at CBS News?

Here’s their headline:

Kansas City Chiefs fans’ booing at NFL opener proves controversial

The fans were “controversial.” Not the kneeling, not the staying in the lockerroom. Not the messaging celebrating an admittedly-Marxist domestic terrorist organization.

The fans.

That’s all you need to know about the raging, anti-American dumpster fire that is the U.S. news media.

Is the corrupt news media directly colluding with the Biden/Harris campaign? – Well, of course it is. All you need to know, you can see in this 44 second clip from the Fox Report last night:

That’s the aptly-named T.J. Ducklo, ducking low and refusing to answer as Bret Baier repeatedly poses the salient question: Does Joe Biden use a TelePrompter to answer questions during his campaign events? Ducklo can’t answer because the answer is manifestly obvious: Yes. Yes, he does.

If you have watched any of Biden’s recent “press conferences” lately, you can plainly see that the questioners have been chosen carefully in advance, and that Creepy Uncle McWifeMolester knows the questions that are coming. You can often plainly see him, reading the scripted answer from the TelePrompter before him.

So, yes, the media is colluding directly with the Biden/Harris campaign. It’s obvious, and that’s why T.J. Ducklo had to duck low and refuse to answer Baier’s question. If the answer was “no,” there’d have been no problem at all.

Biden was against NAFTA before he was for it. – Quid Pro China Joe pulled a John Kerry during a carefully staged interview with Fake Jake Tapper on CNN yesterday. Biden, who is on record as having voted for NAFTA when it was put into place in 1994, just bald-faced lied to a willing and incurious Tapper, saying that he was “against NAFTA” during an answer:

In what would be breaking news if we had anything resembling an honest, functional news media, Biden also told Tapper at one point that President Trump’s re-negotiation of NAFTA, the USMCA, is better for American workers than NAFTA was. Now, of course, it’s an open question whether Uncle EmptyCranium even knows the difference between NAFTA and USMCA, but he did say it, and real journalists would report it, if we had any.

In the same fake interview, China Joe also told Tapper that he still supports bringing the evil, Nazi-like ChiCom government into the World Trade Organization, and still supports granting the despicably dishonest, aggressively thieving ChiComs Most Favored Nation status, which would grant them tariff advantages in trade with the United States.

In other words, if you elect Joe Biden this November, America will become a wholly-owned subsidiary of the ChiCom government. We will be done as a free nation.

The order has apparently gone out. – The riots in Portland and other Democrat-controlled cities across the country have suddenly calmed down the past two nights. Obviously, the polls have gotten so bad that the DNC and Biden/Harris campaign have sent the order out for a pause in the mayhem.

Nevertheless, the great, real journalist Andy Ngo still has some news to report out of Riot City USA, formerly known as Portland:

Yes, this person claims to be a “woman”, and the perpetual outrage crowd demands that you all pretend along with hxr:

Perhaps more absurdly, this … thing… claims to be human:

Seems legit, right?

The question asked below is also quite legit, but Bill de Blasio and Lori Lightfoot are raising their hands to argue the point:

I’ve consistently warned that these people would not stop until they were stopped. Well, the Democrat Party and their funders in the Soros front groups have obviously told them to stop. For now.

But they’ll be back. Don’t kid yourselves otherwise.

Obamagate’s Motivation: Protect the Iran Deal

The Iran Deal was the epicenter of Obamagate. – That’s the direction this all is continuing to go after former Trump campaign foreign policy advisor Walid Phares revealed yesterday that the was the mysterious fifth target for persecution by the Mueller Special Counsel operation identified in Rod Rosenstein’s scope memo.

This story won’t get much attention from the fake news media, which is focused on its latest fear porn campaign related to the Wuhan Virus, but it is important because it serves to confirm what we have suspected about the motivations behind the still-ongoing persecution of General Mike Flynn.

From a report at John Solomon’s JustTheNews site:

“In my view, the push against the Trump campaign, and then the transition, and then the administration was on behalf of those who wanted to defend the Iran deal, to protect the interests of the Iran deal,” Phares told Just the News.

Phares, a counterterrorism expert who advised Mitt Romney’s 2012 campaign, Donald Trump’s 2016 campaign and Republicans in Congress for years, has long been a critic of Iran for its support for terrorism as well as the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt, Tehran’s ally in the Sunni world.

The Obama administration struck the deal to pay billions to Iran and ease sanctions on the country in exchange for a freeze on its nuclear weapons program, and it recognized the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt after the Arab Spring uprising led to the overthrow of Cairo’s longtime ruler Hosni Mubarak.

Trump’s improbable win in 2016 threatened to upend those alliances, Phares said during an interview on the John Solomon Reports podcast, and likely set in motion efforts to undermine the new president in fall 2016 and spring 2017.

“The Obama administration obviously was not happy,” Phares said. “Not just because Donald Trump won the election, but they knew that he was about to change things. The most important point that they were concerned about, and that was not a secret, was the fact that Donald Trump said during the campaign that he will be withdrawing, he will be canceling, he used different terminology, the Iran deal. And the Iran deal was a major strategic achievement of the Obama administration. Definitely, they were not happy with that.”

“And Donald Trump, also during his campaign, was talking about changing, shifting alliances in the region,” he added. “He didn’t want the partnership with the Muslim Brotherhood … So it was a massive change in foreign policy.”

[End]

Indeed, the Iran Deal was almost the only major strategic achievement of Obama’s entire 8 years in office. Unfortunately, it was an ‘achievement’ that would have set the Islamic Republic of Iran – the chief sponsor of terrorism on earth – as the dominant nuclear power in the Middle East.

General Flynn knew this, having served as the Director of the Defense Intelligence Agency in the Obama Administration. Flynn was forced out of that job as negotiations over the deal were ramping up during the summer of 2014, and thus understands the motivations of the Obama officials who pushed it. He also understands the motivations behind the Obama administration’s embrace of the Muslim Brotherhood.

That is no doubt why we see such a flurry of activity by high Obama officials taking place in the wake of the 2016 election unmask, wiretap and eventually frame Flynn for a process crime he did not commit. Flynn knew where all the Iran deal bodies were buried, and the people behind that deal could not afford to have him serving as the nation’s National Security Advisor.

Obama, Kerry, et al assumed that Hillary Clinton would win the 2016 election and cover all of their tracks. But that didn’t happen and they flew into an obvious panic. They’ve spent the last three and a half years keeping Flynn muzzled through a series of FBI and Special Counsel investigations and a kangaroo court process that now has a once-respected federal judge, Emmet Sullivan, sacrificing his entire career at the altar of Obama and the Mullahs in Iran.

Sullivan’s role in all of this means that there is little hope that he will dismiss the case against Flynn once the 3-judge panel of the DC Circuit Court remands it back to him, which is the most likely outcome. Sullivan has a hearing in the case scheduled for July 16, pending the outcome of the appeal by Flynn’s lawyer, Sidney Powell, for a writ of mandamus.

From a policy standpoint, 3-1/2 years of President Donald Trump have virtually erased Barack Obama from the history books. Only some remnants of Obamacare and the patently illegal DACA executive order really remain standing from those eight sorry years today.

But from the standpoint of the utter and complete corruption of pretty much every institution of the U.S. government, the Obama legacy remains very strong. Given the almost utter lack of any help he receives in trying to clean that sludge out of the system from congressional Republicans, it is doubtful that even a second Trump term in office will be able to clean out the impacted sludge.

That is all.

Saturday News Roundup: Trump Fires WHO, Russia Hoax Dead, Roberts Goes Rogue Again

Today’s Campaign Update, Part II

Trump to WHO: You’re Fired! – President Donald Trump, outraged at the role the WHO played in helping China’s communist government conceal the real nature of the Wuhan Virus for several months, took final action with that corrupt globalist organization on Friday, completely removing the United States from its membership:

“China has total control over the World Health Organization despite only paying $40 million per year compared to what the United States has been paying, which is approximately $450 million a year,” Trump said during a news conference in the White House Rose Garden.

“The world needs answers from China on the virus. We must have transparency. Why is it that China shut off infected people from Wuhan to all other parts of China?” he added. “It didn’t go to Beijing, it went nowhere else, but they allowed them to freely travel throughout the world, including Europe and the United States.”

Naturally, RINO limp-wrists like Lamar Alexander were upset and disturbed by the move, because of course they were.

But then, WHO cares what they think? (See what I did there?)

The Russia Hoax breathes its last, dying gasp. – Thanks to the efforts of Ric Grenell and new Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe, the Russia Hoax is now in hospice care, breathing its last, desperate breaths.

As promised, DNI Ratcliffe released the full transcripts and FBI summaries of the various calls General Mike Flynn conducted with Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak during the 2016 transition period. His action came after Grenell had fully declassified the documents early this week. The calls show exactly what we should have expected: An incoming National Security Advisor holding calls with his Russian counterpart and having preliminary discussions on areas of mutual interest between our two countries.

The December 29, 2016 call that the Obama Coup Cabal and its corrupt media support group have claimed to be so concerning turns out to be a big nothing burger. During that call, when Kislyak raises the likelihood of Russia responding to Obama’s earlier expulsion of dozens of Russian “diplomats”, i.e., spies, Flynn advises him exactly as John F. Kennedy advised Nikita Kruschev during the Cuban Missile Crisis: to avoid ‘going nuclear’, and to respond in a “reciprocal” manner.

Naturally, the corrupt news media that has spent the last 4 solid years pushing the Russia hoax is today trying to convince you all that Flynn’s reply here is some sort of treasonous act. That is, of course, utterly absurd.

There is nothing wrong with that call, and we now know with 100% certainty that the Obama Administration – including Obama himself – went after Flynn for the simple fact that Flynn knows where all the bodies are buried with relation to Obama’s efforts to prop up Iran. Those corrupt bastards sold their souls and our national security to the Islamic state, and they could not countenance having Flynn as Trump’s National Security Advisor.

The most poignant part of reading the transcripts is that we see Flynn and Kislyak discussing the very real areas of mutual interest the U.S. and Russia had at the time related to destroying ISIS, stabilizing Syria and dealing with the Iranian threat. By mounting the Russia hoax, the Obama Coup Cabal and its media support team threw all of that potential good away, making it impossible for the Trump Administration to truly engage with Russia on those matters, and making our nation less secure in the name of protecting Obama, John Kerry and everyone else involved in the Iran deal.

This must not go unpunished. The Russia Hoax is dead, and it is now time for William Barr and John Durham to start extracting some justice.

Meet John Roberts, the new Anthony Kennedy. – Just when Americans all over the country are getting ready to go back to church, Chief Justice John Roberts decides to side with the communists.

In a 5-4 decision late Friday evening, Roberts sided with the four “liberal” – as the corrupt media likes to call them – justices in upholding the draconian, science-devoid restrictions on religious freedom being imposed by California Governor Gavin Newsom. Here’s the key passage from the decision:

Although California’s guidelines place restrictions on
places of worship, those restrictions appear consistent with
the Free Exercise Clause of the First Amendment. Similar
or more severe restrictions apply to comparable secular
gatherings, including lectures, concerts, movie showings,
spectator sports, and theatrical performances, where large
groups of people gather in close proximity for extended periods of time. And the Order exempts or treats more leniently only dissimilar activities, such as operating grocery
stores, banks, and laundromats, in which people neither
congregate in large groups nor remain in close proximity for
extended periods.

[End]

Thus does the majority of the U.S. Supreme Court uphold dramatic restrictions on the absolute freedom of religion guaranteed in the First Amendment by equating your church, synagogue, temple or mosque to the local Kiwanis Club.

If you are not outraged by this, I really don’t know what to say to you.

That is all.

Is Bernie Sanders the Walter Mondale of George McGoverns?

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

It seems inevitable at this point, doesn’t it? – As the Democrats  lurch off to the far, far, far left of the political spectrum once again, we should take a moment to review some history of the Iowa Caucuses where that political Party is concerned.

Unlike in the Republican Party, where there has historically been little correlation between the Iowa winner as an indicator of who would become the ultimate nominee, this odd contest in this smallish state whose population is in no way indicative of the overall population of the United States tends to show us where the heart of the Democrat Party really lies. Indeed, in every election cycle during this century, and in 9 of the last 12 contests going back to 1972, Iowans have crowned the person who would eventually win the Democrat nomination.

This history tells us why the Democrat Party leaders are in such an obvious panic coming into today, with The Commie having moved into a significant polling lead in the Hawkeye state in recent weeks. It also helps to explain why, after 76 years of continuous existence, the DNC and poll co-sponsor CNN spiked the final Des Moines Register poll that has been traditionally issued on the day before the caucuses take place.

While there is precious little real ideological difference between Democrat so-called “moderates” and the Party’s outright communist faction, Party leaders and their corrupt toadies in the media know it is vitally important to maintain the fiction in the public’s mind. They fully understand that Bernie Sanders would have no better chance of defeating Donald Trump in November than would the reincarnation of Nikita Kruschev, and that having The Commie at the top of the ballot would mean the suffering of crushing losses in congressional and down-ballot races as well.

Crazy Bernie Still Loves the Commies - The Rush Limbaugh Show

This reality is why we saw on Sunday the reports that John Kerry, of all people, is so distressed at the reality of Joe Biden’s obvious incapability of holding the office that he is now actively considering trying to jump into the race to try to save the Party from Sanders. Kerry is an interesting case where Iowa is concerned, since 2004 was the last time that the Party’s communist faction thought it had a chance to dictate the nominee.

That was the year when leftist radical Howard Dean appeared to have all the momentum coming into Iowa, but was crushed by Kerry, ultimately finishing a weak 3rd place behind despicable John Edwards. Dean’s scream during his concession speech that night turned him into an immediate laughing stock and effectively ended his candidacy.

Kerry went on to become the nominee, and run perhaps the most idiotic general election campaign in modern history. This is the guy who thinks he might be able to save the party from Sanders’ Stalinism.

One has to go all the way back to 1992 to find the last Iowa Caucus contest that did not choose the eventual Democrat nominee. That year was a bit of an aberration, since Iowa Senator Tom Harkin – himself a committed Marxist – won overwhelmingly in his home state against a field of other candidates who did not really bother to contest the caucuses, preferring to save their money and time for New Hampshire and other states down the road. No one in 1992 actually believed Harkin would become the nominee of the Party which ultimately chose Bill Clinton.

Iowa also missed in 1988 when Senator Dick Gephardt from neighboring Missouri won a close contest over Illinois Senator Paul Simon. Those mid-west Democrats like to stick together. Finishing a fairly strong third that year was this guy named Mike Dukakis, who happened to be the Governor of Massachusetts. Dukakis appeared to have a shot at defeating George H.W. Bush in the general election, until he agreed to a photo-op while riding in a tank:

Dukakis and the Tank - POLITICO Magazine

Things went steeply downhill from there.

Iowans also missed the boat the last time the Democrat Party actually nominated a real, true communist. That was in 1972, when South Dakota Senator George McGovern finished second to Maine Senator Edmund Muskie. The fake news media of the time did everything in its power to prop a poorly-organized Muskie up in that race, but the Party was radicalizing at that time, with the hippie generation taking a dominant role in its primary races. McGovern ultimately became the nominee and went onto lose what was at the time a historic landslide to incumbent President Richard Nixon. With campaign swag like this, it isn’t hard to see why:

Lot Detail - “George McGovern For President” 1.75” 1968 Hopeful Picture Button

McGovern’s landslide loss was surpassed 12 years later by Walter Mondale, who was running against another strong GOP incumbent, Ronald Reagan. Mondale wasn’t an outright communist, but he still managed to win only his home state of Minnesota and the District of Columbia after promising that he would raise everyone’s taxes as his first act in office. Not smart.

The Reagan campaign slogan that year looked sort of familiar:

Elections from 1968 to 2012 | Virginia Museum of History & Culture

All of this is a long way around to saying that, at least where the Democrats are concerned, the Iowa Caucuses are historically serious business, and that history tells us that there is a high probability that tonight’s ultimate winner will end up becoming the Party’s presidential nominee.

So, will Bernie Sanders become the Walter Mondale of George McGoverns? Stay tuned.

That is all.

Democrats in a Super Panic on Super Bowl Sunday

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

This is glorious.

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

Democrat/Media Soleimani Narrative is an Epic Failure

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

It’s all so predictable and tiresome, but exactly what we should expect from these people. – The Democrats and their corrupt toadies in the nation’s fake news media are pushing a ridiculous narrative in the wake of President Trump’s order to take out Iranian Revolutionary Guard terrorist leader Qassem Soleimani with a drone strike at the Baghdad International Airport. It is a narrative that is doomed to become an epic fail.

The narrative basically goes like this: President Trump should have consulted congressional leaders in advance of taking any action. His failure to do so creates a constitutional crisis and may be a “war crime.” He also must provide a more specific, detailed public explanation for the reasons why he decided Soleimani had to be taken out, including the public revelation of the intelligence information relied upon. The detestable hack Chris Wallace is in fact pushing this very narrative on Fox News Sunday in his interview with Sec. State Mike Pompeo as this piece is being written.

All of which is just another steaming pile of smelly horse manure brought to you by your friends at the Democrat/media/Deep State Axis of Disinformation.

First, on the question of some presidential “obligation” to notify congressional leaders in advance of a drone strike on Islamic terrorists: That all went out the window when the Democrat Party’s leaders clearly began to demonstrate they have a higher loyalty to the terrorist than they do to our country. Let’s all remember this from May, 2018:

Remember? Former Obama Secretary of State John Kerry spent days in Paris meeting with Iranian leaders, advising them on ways to thwart President Trump and his official U.S. foreign policy. And Kerry is far from the only Democrat who has been engaged in this kind of subversive activity during the Trump Administration.

Image

President Trump, in this instance, actually had an obligation to U.S. national security NOT to inform any Democrat in advance of taking this action for the simple fact that he knows without any doubt that no Democrat in Washington can be trusted any longer with U.S. national security secrets. He knows that within 5 minutes of informing a Chuck Schumer or Nancy Pelosi of a pending action, that information would have appeared on CNN or at the New York Times or Washington Post websites.

Yes, presidents in the past – you know, back when Democrat leaders were actually loyal Americans – have traditionally tried to inform congressional leaders of both parties in advance of significant military actions, but there is simply no governing legal authority mandating that he do so. As we noted here a few days ago, Barack Obama his own self authorized hundreds, if not thousands, of drone strikes on terrorist targets during his eight years in office without notifying anyone in congress, and no Democrat ever expressed any concern about it.

For the very same reasons mentioned above, if President Trump’s action was a “war crime,” then what of Obama? What about George W. Bush and Bill Clinton? Sorry, Dems, that cat don’t flush.

Then there this contention about the President having some obligation to offer a more detailed explanation of the reasons behind the strike on Soleimani, including the somewhat stunning contention that he must release the highly-classified intelligence information he relied upon in making his decision. This from the same political party that still refuses to release the transcripts of all of its Soviet-style impeachment witness interrogations, mind you.

The Administration, through Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and the President himself, has already laid out its reasons for taking action in general terms. More specific, detailed information about Soleimani and his myriad terrorist actions over the past few decades can be found in the guest piece published here Sunday morning (Quassem Soleimani, the IRGC, and why the “General” had to die).

Obviously, the President has zero obligation to the Democrats or anyone else to publish highly-classified intelligence information that would without any doubt at all put U.S. or Israeli intelligence sources in severe danger (which may actually be the goal behind these Democrat requests). But Texas Congressman Dan Crenshaw, himself a veteran of several tours in the Middle East as a Navy Seal, may have handled it better than anyone in response to a tweet by the despicable Democrat clown Eric Swalwell:

Oof.

Note that Swalwell also demands that the President inform the public – and thus the Islamic terrorists who run Iran – in advance of his “concrete plan for dealing with its [turning Soleimani into a fine, pink mist] consequences.”

Yeah, that’s just stupid, dude. Not happening.

Bottom line: The Democrat/media/deep state Axis of Disinformation is pushing a stupid, shameful, epic failure of a narrative in the wake of a killing that any American with functioning synapses in their cranium will continue to celebrate.

Losers, all of them.

Chris Wallace and Chuck Todd Shame Themselves Protecting the DC Swamp

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

It’s like clockwork, folks, it really is.  – Here is the headline of the September 30 Campaign Update: “Winter is Coming, and More Fake Whistleblowers are Coming With it.”

Fast forward six days to Sunday, and guess what? A second fake whistleblower from the Intelligence Community has “come forward,” i.e., coordinated with Lawfare Alliance attorneys, the staff of the House Intelligence Committee and its Chairman, Bug-eyed Adam Schiff, to file another false complaint against the President of the United States. Just as we saw in last October’s lynching of Brett Kavanaugh, whenever one accusation has begun to lose its utility in moving public opinion, another comes forward.

If you think this is the last fake whistleblower Schiff and Lawfare have coached up on this dreadfully stupid coup d’etat effort, you are sadly mistaken. If anything, the pace of the complaint filings will speed up over time as their usefulness in brainwashing the public fades with each successive filing. That’s how it happened with Kavanaugh and that’s how it will happen in this latest coup attempt.

The first complaint had a useful life of roughly ten days before the coup plotters decided they needed another one out there to generate more blaring headlines and obnoxious talking head panels on CNN and MSNBC. This one will probably have a useful life of 5-7 days, the next one less than that. There is no real mystery here – the only real question left is whether the Creepy Porn Lawyer will try to bring forward a “witness” of his own in another failed attempt to cash in on the fake controversy, as he did in the Kavanaugh fiasco.

Lindsey Graham summed it all perfectly in a tweet:

Chuck Todd, Chris Wallace and the other useful idiots who host the Sunday morning fake news shows all did their parts to keep the sham going. Todd and Wallace and were especially animated and repugnant in rolling out the talking points of the Deep State coup plotters, which basically amount to ‘corruption of public office is ok if you’re a Democrat,’ and ‘if you declare yourself a candidate for the Democrat presidential nomination, you are immune from investigation.’

Expect the Pantsuit Princess and John Kerry to jump into the race soonest.

Here are clips of both Todd and Wallace going about their jobs as Democrat toadies, if you can stand to watch them:

The President himself responded to the TV networks’ DC Swamp protection racket as he usually does, on Twitter:

Everything the President says in those tweets is absolutely true. The problem, of course is that the truth conflicts with the longstanding traditions of corruption in the DC Swamp. The selling of high office is a tradition as old as Washington, DC itself, and the reason why many people seek to win those offices in the first place. Look at how fabulously wealthy the Clintons, Obamas, Bidens, Pelosis, Gores and so many others in both parties have become while supposedly holding jobs that pay $150k – $400k per year.

If you think those payoffs stop with the officeholders and don’t filter into our national news media as well, you obviously haven’t been watching the Sunday morning #fakenews shows recently. The whole town is your basic mob racket.

Once you understand how the DC Swamp works, everything the corruptors of our nation do makes perfect sense.

Hollywood Performs a Cultural Appropriation on Neil Armstrong

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Wait, you hired a Canadian to play Neil Armstrong?  Isn’t that, like, cultural appropriation or something? – Hey, everybody, Hollywood has finally made a film about American hero Neil Armstrong, the first man on the moon.  That only took half a century.

That’s the good news.  The bad news is that they left out the iconic moment in which Armstrong plants the U.S. Flag on the moon’s surface, because of course they did.  Predictably, this is causing a backlash from many…wait for it…patriotic Americans!  Go figure.

The film’s Canadian star, Ryan Gosling, defended what he said was an intentional decision because Armstrong’s achievement – which was done on the back of billions of American dollars, a decade of American research and exploration, and with the support of more than 400,000 people, all of whom were…wait for it…AMERICANS – “transcended countries and borders.”

No.  Not it did not, you smarmy jackass.  As a great Twitter meme pointed out on Friday, there are two kinds of countries:  The kind that use the metric system, and the kind that has put men on the moon.

Just one more reason why if you go to the movies these days to see any film not produced by Dinesh D’Souza, you are part of the problem.

Tired of all this Winning yet?  Part I – Far left fake news outlet The Village Voice announced yesterday that it will cease all publication immediately, leaving the nation far better off as a result.  Let’s do The New York Times next.

Tired of all this Winning yet?  Part II – The State Department announced that the U.S. will withhold all contributions to a U.N. sponsored money pit that pretends to provide aid to Palestinian refugees.  A spokesman for the State Department called the agency’s business model “unsustainable,” which in diplomatic speak means all the money was being siphoned off either to support Palestinian terrorist acts against Israel or going into the pockets of corrupt U.N. officials.  Just one more element of the un-American legacy of Barack Hussein Obama gone.

Tired of all this Winning yet?  Part III – The Democrats’ 2004 presidential nominee and former failed Secretary of State John Kerry is refusing to rule out another presidential run in 2020.  Oh, please, please, please, let this happen.  I really cannot wait for a rerun of that particular fiasco.

Hey, the Texas news media has been telling us he’s just like a Kennedy, so… – Irish Beto O’Rourke took a wallop to his campaign on Friday, as the Houston Chronicle and San Antonio Express News both ran stories detailing new facts about his drunk driving incident from 20 years ago.  To be fair, O’Rourke has long admitted to the fact he was arrested for DWI, calling it an inexcusable act.  But what he has left out of his maudlin confessions are the facts that he blew a 1.36 on the breathalyzer test that night, and that he attempted to flee the scene of the wreck he caused in his drunken state before being arrested.

The Democrat-tilting news media in Texas have been comparing O’Rourke to a Kennedy for months now.  We just didn’t know prior to yesterday that they were talking about Ted Kennedy.

While the Chronicle and Express News are to be commended for actually filing these reports, they have yet to report on the fact that, in 1995, young Irish Beto was also tossed in the pokey on burglary-related charges while in college.  According to Politifact Texas, “O’Rourke and fellow students were arrested for “attempted forcible entry” under the section of the Texas penal code titled “Burglary.” We also added O’Rourke’s reference, in Palestine, to the burglary arrest.”

Gosh, maybe now we know why Irish Beto suddenly backed out of the debate with Ted Cruz that was supposed to have taken place last night.  The two candidates have four more scheduled debates over the coming weeks – we’ll just have to wait and see if our “Kennedy-esque” boy wonder chooses to keep any of those appointments.

Why is it always such a shock when someone at the FBI actually does their real job? – After state law enforcement officials in New Mexico had completely hosed up the case against the five radical Islamic terrorists who were training kidnapped children to commit atrocities in our country, the feds finally decided to step in.  On Friday, the FBI actually took time out from its ongoing silent coup efforts against President Trump to do its real job for a change, placing the five terrorists under arrest for violations of federal weapons and conspiracy laws.

“The defendants, Jany Leveille, 35, a Haitian national illegally present in the United States, Siraj Ibn Wahhaj, 40, Hujrah Wahhaj, 37, Subhanah Wahhaj, 35, and Lucas Morton, 40, are charged in a criminal complaint that was filed earlier today in the U.S. District Court for the District of New Mexico,” the bureau said in a statement.

“The criminal complaint charges Jany Leveille with being an alien unlawfully in possession of firearms and ammunition in the District of New Mexico from Nov. 2017 through Aug. 2018,” the bureau said. “The criminal complaint charges the other four defendants with aiding and abetting Leveille in committing the offense, and with conspiring with Leveille to commit the offense.”

Presumably, the arresting agents can now go back to stonewalling document production requests from various congressional committees in the hopes of getting safely past the midterm elections.  Because that is the real focus of our nation’s “premier law enforcement agency” these days.

Just another day in every day is a new day America.

20 lb. Bags of Poop, Pelosi, Feinstein, and Harris – What do These Things Have in Common?

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

CNN and MSNBC will demonize him for violating traffic laws.:  Eric Trump caused panic among his Secret Service security detail on Monday when he rushed into New York City rush hour traffic to wave down a passing ambulance.  He took this action in an attempt to aid a woman who had passed out near a train station.  No word yet if Maxine Waters will now urge New York City’s drivers to run down anyone named Trump who rushes into a street to save a potentially dying woman, but it seems only a matter of time.

Hey, better late than never, right? – More than 7 months after he panicked global stock markets by rushing to air a completely false report claiming that Gen. Mike Flynn was rolling over on President Trump, ABC’s long-time fake reporter Brian Ross finally got his walking papers on Monday.  The New York Post reports that Ross was allowed to resign by his ABC fake news masters, but in a clue that it wasn’t exactly voluntary, his long-time producer, Rhonda Schwartz, is also moving on to pursue – as they say in the corporate world – other opportunities.

Hey, don’t be sad, guys – you’ll fit right in over at MSNBC or the New York Times.  Tons of “other opportunities” out there for news fakers these days.

After all, Ali Watkins, the NYTimes reporter who was sleeping with not one, but two staffers of the corrupt Senate Intelligence Committee in order to get scoops, still has her job.  Chris Matthews, the fake host at MSNBC who has been accused by multiple women of creating a “hostile work environment” on the set of his daily show, still has his job.  Joy Ann Reid, the fake MSNBC host who has been revealed to be a heinous gay basher, still has her job as well.

It may have taken ABC 7 long months to drum up some ethical standards, but there are plenty of fake news outlets out there that have no standards at all, so Ross and Schwartz won’t remain unemployed for long.

Speaking of the promiscuous Ali Watkins, we should also remember that the recent indictment of Senate Intel Staffer James Wolfe lists not one, but four fake news reporters to whom he was feeding classified information.  While the indictment does not cite these reporters by name, it does provide a good deal of detail about their activities.  Some independent investigators have concluded from these activities that the person identified as “reporter no. 4” in the indictment is very likely…wait for it…Brian Ross of ABC News.

So, there may be more – much more – to the Brian Ross story than the world currently understands.  We won’t know for sure unless and until Mr. Wolfe goes to trial.  Somebody pass me the popcorn.

If you want to witness a post-apocalyptic world, you don’t need Netflix – just take a vacation to San Francisco. – SFGate has a report this morning that someone deposited a 20-lb. bag of human waste on a street corner in the city’s “tenderloin district” on Monday.  Tellingly, a spokesperson for the city’s Public Works Department commented that, thanks to the new city ordinance that allows urinating and defecation in public, reports of human waste on the streets are common.  But the good news is that bags of this poundage are “not typical.”

Unfortunately, that particular qualifier implies that a bag filled with 20 lbs. of human waste on a city street corner is also not unprecedented.  Can it really be any accident at all that Dianne Feinstein, Nancy Pelosi and Kamala Harris all hail from this particular city?

And speaking of Kamala Harris, the California Senator issued a tweet on Monday with the following statement:  “As a career prosecutor, I actually went after gangs and transnational criminal organizations. That’s being a leader on public safety. What is not, is ripping babies from their mothers.”

Note to Sen. Harris:  The phrase “ripping babies from their mothers” is probably not the best imagery for someone who is a rabid supporter of the Planned Parenthood abortion mills to use, on Twitter or anywhere else.

Every time you get to thinking you can’t possibly think any worse of Barack Obama, he turns to Michelle and says “hold my beer.” – It turns out that the act of loading up several cargo planes with $1.7 billion in cash and shipping them over to Tehran was just not quite enough mendacity for Barack Obama to commit while he was giving away the world in his “negotiations” with the Mullahs.

Thanks to Fox News, we now learn that the blessedly former President also summarily granted U.S. citizenship to no fewer than 2,500 friends and relatives of Iranian public officials as he and John Kerry desperately tried to get a deal in place throughout 2015.  The source for this claim is one Hojjat al-Islam Mojtaba Zolnour, chairman of Iran’s parliamentary nuclear committee.  Given the scope and scale of the myriad un-American actions undertaken by Obama and his band of evil minions during the darkest 8 years in U.S. history, there is no reason at all to disbelieve Mr. Zolnour.

Naturally, both Mr. Obama and Mr. Kerry are not commenting on the matter.

Just another day in the scope of Obama mendacity just keeps growing America.

That is all.

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Tired of all this Winning yet? Part I  – President Donald got a yuuuuge win out of the U.S. Supreme Court on Tuesday as the Court’s conservative majority – you know, the five justices who have actually bothered to read the U.S. Constitution – upheld his travel ban impacting the citizens of seven terrorist-supporting nations.  The 5-4 nature of the decision simply reaffirms the fact that the court’s leftists faction is now nothing more than an adjunct of the radical leftwing’s “resistance,” now willing to ignore decades of clear and unambiguous jurisprudence in their quest to transform the nation.  My goodness.

In the wake of the decision, until recently the DNC’s Vice Chairman, Minnesota Rep. Keith Ellison, issued this idiotically dishonest tweet:

For the record, 92% of the world’s Muslim population is completely unaffected by the travel ban.  But, as we all know, Democrats always – ALWAYS – have to lie.  It’s apparently in their genes.

 

Tired of all this Winning yet?  Part II – The Supreme Court also handed the “resistance” another kick to the gut in another 5-4 decision, this one overturning a California law that requires church-run pregnancy counseling centers to provide abortion information to their patients.  Again, the Court’s four leftists confirmed that they no longer value the freedoms of religion and speech contained in the Bill of Rights.

The preservation by a bare 5-4 majority of these key rights and presidential powers so clearly spelled out in our Constitution and Bill of Rights demonstrates conclusively how much gratitude we all owe to Mitch McConnell and the GOP majority in the U.S. Senate.  Regardless of how we feel about these mostly-RINO, establishment Republicans who disappoint us so frequently, their refusal to confirm Obama nominee Merrick Garland to replace the deceased Antonin Scalia in 2016 was a crucial moment in our nation’s history.  So thanks, all you squishy senators – you did something truly important.  Now you can all go back to disappointing us.

Joe Crowley.  Remember that name.  Who’s Joe Crowley, you ask?  Why, he’s currently the Chairman of the House Democratic Caucus in the U.S. congress, where he has served for many years as the U.S. Representative for New York’s 7th congressional district, which takes in much of Brooklyn, Bronx and Queens.  But he won’t be playing those roles much longer.

In fact, he will no longer be the congressman from the 7th district in New York after December 31, because, in a stunning demonstration of just how far to the radical left the Democrat Party is trending, this 20-year incumbent, very powerful congressman got his butt kicked by 18 percent of the vote by a 28 year-old socialist named Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.  How big of an “upset” is this?  Consider that Crowley was deemed by those who compile what we know as the “conventional wisdom” to be so safe that he had not even drawn a primary challenger in this previous 7 re-election bids.

Crowley had out-raised Ocasio-Cortez by a 10 to 1 margin in the race.  He was considered such a powerhouse within the Democrats’ demented caucus in the House that many thought he’d be the guy to replace Nancy Pelosi if she ever decides to give up her grasp on power as Speaker.  This was a guy who was going places.

Until last night.  This morning, he’s just planning on what he’s going to do after he goes home.  No one should be happy about this – as detestable as Crowley no doubt is, the juvenile Ocasio-Cortez, who based her campaign on the elimination of ICE and creation of fully-open borders, is exponentially worse.  But hey, that’s just where the entire Democrat Party is moving today.

Meanwhile, while our country’s fake news media is too busy working with their Democrat wards to dummy up another fake scandal to pay attention to anything else, there’s a revolution brewing over in Iran.  The streets of Tehran have been filled all week with growing crowds of demonstrators protesting the failing economic conditions that have been brought about by the brutal Islamic regime that has run the country for the past 40 years.

While we have seen similar uprisings in Iran come and go over the past four decades, with the Mullahs always holding onto power, this one seems different, as explained by NPR:

“Anti-government demonstrations driven by economic troubles erupted across the country last December and January. But they didn’t gain traction in Tehran. This week’s demonstrations in the capital were the biggest in years, multiple media outlets have reported.

The prevention of exactly this sort of economic uprising was the main reason why the Mullahs were so desperate to get the incredibly one-sided “deal” they received from Barack Obama and John Kerry.  That of course was Obama’s and Kerry’s motivation as well, because they’re both so dimwitted they actually bought into the idiotic notion that Iran could become a stabilizing influence in the Middle East.

Of course, the exact opposite goal is the reason why President Trump recently cancelled U.S. participation in the Iran deal:  He knows that the re-implementation of economic sanctions, which is already underway, is likely to hasten the day when an uprising like the one taking place right now ends up deposing the Mullahs for good.  Were it not for Obama and Kerry and their injection of hundreds of billions of dollars into the Iranian economy, that day might well have already come.

That’s the truth.  That’s the real Obama legacy for the Middle East.

Just another day in all this #Winning never gets old America.

That is all.

As Trump Negotiates, Democrats Self-Immolate

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

You thought Wendy Davis was a disaster for Democrats in 2014?  Lupe Valdez says “hold my beer.” – Texas Democrat gubernatorial nominee Lupe Valdez is making the closing of property tax “loopholes” one of her campaign’s major areas of focus.  Yesterday, the Dallas Morning News reported that Ms. Valdez – a former Dallas County Sheriff – owes more than $12,000 in delinquent property taxes.  Democrats:  If they didn’t exist, nobody in their right mind would want to make them up.

But..but…but…who are we gonna get to play the president in our next disaster movie? – Actor Morgan Freeman got his #MeToo moment yesterday, as no fewer than 8 women came forward to accuse him of all sorts of detestable harassment behavior.  This creates a severe casting problem for Hollywood’s producers, since it seems as if Mr. Freeman has appeared in about 50% of all movies filmed since about 1996.

Meanwhile, the scumbag di tutti scumbags, big Hollywood muckety-muck and good friend of Hillary and Oprah Harvey Weinstein, will apparently surrender himself to New York City police today on felony sexual assault charges.  We can expect a whole lot more surrendering himself on sexual assault charges to be in Mr. Weinstein’s future, as active investigations into his behavior are ongoing in at least three U.S. states and two other countries.  He was a very busy man.

In case you missed it, the Twitter meme wizards have provided this campaign tool to every Republican candidate running for office in this year’s mid-term elections:

San Fran Nan – the gift who just keeps on giving – to Republicans.

Democrats really should learn how to read, Part 9,587. – On Thursday morning, President Donald Trump issued a letter to the Crazy Little Fat Guy in North Korea seemingly cancelling the scheduled June 12 summit meeting between the two men in Singapore.  Citing the intemperate tone of recent official comments coming out of North Korea over the past week, Mr. Trump also expressed his willingness to resume negotiations over the de-nuclearization of the Korean Peninsula whenever the Norks calmed their crazy selves down.

Democrats all over the country – none of whom have bothered to read “The Art of the Deal” or make any other real effort to understand the way the President operates in high-stakes negotiations – spent most of the day literally celebrating what they believed was a big “win” for Kim Jong Un (because liberals will always side with the world’s despots over the United States whenever a Republican happens to be in the White House).  Had any of these people ever taken the time to try to understand Mr. Trump, they’d have known that the letter, and the brief speech he made later in the day on the subject, are classic examples of negotiating tactics that he has used many times in the past.

At about 4:20 CT yesterday afternoon, I decided to try to be helpful to all the Democrats out there on my Twitter account:

Less than an hour after that tweet was posted, the Norks responded with an official statement calling the President’s cancellation of the Singapore meeting “extremely regrettable,” and offering to meet with Mr. Trump “any time and in any form.”  The Kim government also issued a video that purports to depict the destruction of the country’s main nuclear weapons testing site.

In “The Art of the Deal”, one of the negotiating tactics Trump emphasizes is that you have to be willing to just get up and walk away from a bad deal.  This was the major failure of Barack Obama and John Kerry in their laughable negotiations over the deal with Iran – they were so desperate to get a deal, any old deal at all that would in their minds enhance Obama’s pathetic “legacy”, that they were never willing to just walk away.  So they ended up with one of the most horrific “deals” in world history, a “deal” that ended up requiring them to load $400 million in cash on a plane and fly it over to Tehran to give to the Mullahs.

Donald Trump isn’t going to do that.  He’s not going to sacrifice America’s national security and national treasure for reasons of personal vanity as Obama did.

We have to remember here that Trump is engaged in a highly complex negotiation involving not just two countries, but four:  the United States, North Korea, South Korea and China, which is North Korea’s main benefactor, and thus exerts tremendous influence on Kim’s behavior.  Despite what it says, Trump’s letter was not about recent intemperate statements coming from Kim and his official spokesmen.  The President is obviously dissatisfied with some aspect of what is being offered by either North Korea or China, and is not willing to put his name on an agreement until that matter is resolved favorably to the U.S.

We also need to realize that the President’s dissatisfaction may not even be about some issue directly related to North Korea – he could be trying to gain concessions out of China’s President Xi in ongoing tariff negotiations or some other China-related matter.  We don’t know right now, and the truth is that we may never know.

What we do know is that yesterday’s upheaval has not ended U.S./North Korea negotiations.  We also know Democrats very predictably jumped the gun because they still, 17 months after the 2016 election, have no understanding of how the current President of the United States operates, or for that matter, why he was elected to begin with.

Yesterday was just part of the art of the deal.  The deal may – or may not – ended up being delayed, but the rapid response by the Crazy Little Fat Guy proves that it isn’t dead, as every Democrat in America had obviously hoped.

[ADDENDUM]

About 30 minutes after I posted this piece, President Trump issued the following tweet:

I rest my case.

Just another day in the Art of the Deal America.

The Deep State Assault on Devin Nunes Reeks of Desperation

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

But it only got more extreme from Comey:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

That is all.

McCain’s Pettiness, Kerry’s Mendacity and Mueller’s Pettifoggery

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Bitter, petty and mean until his dying breath. – John McCain is settling old grudges in his final days, telling friends (who then leaked it all to the New York Times) that a) he wants Mike Pence to come to his funeral, but not President Trump, b) he wants Barack Obama to deliver a eulogy at his funeral, and c) he regrets choosing Sarah Palin to be his running mate in 2008.  Anyone surprised by any of this hasn’t been paying much attention to John McCain’s behavior over the last four decades.

Bitter, mendacious, and disloyal to the bitter end. – Meanwhile, John Kerry, 2004’s failed candidate for President and the failed Secretary of State who helped Barack Obama sell out America and Israel in the horrible executive agreement with Iran,  was revealed to have spent the past week in what loving liberals in the fake news media call “shadow diplomacy” and what any thinking person calls violations of the Logan Act.  Kerry has been running all over the place, meeting with officials from Iran and other countries in a desperate effort to salvage his pathetic, un-American legacy.

The Logan Act, of course, is an antiquated law that prevents private U.S. citizens from interfering with the foreign policy of the sitting president and his administration.  The law dates to the 18th century, and has never been enforced – if it had been, then people like Jimmy Carter, Bill Clinton and Jesse Jackson would all be serving time in Leavenworth right now.

So what’s the point here?  Well, if you remember the 10 days during which Obama minion Sally Yates served as acting Attorney General, she actually wanted to prosecute a genuine American hero, General Mike Flynn, for Logan Act violations because he was making introductory phone calls to leaders of other countries during the presidential transition, something every presidential transition team has done since the invention of the freaking telephone.  Every liberal talking head on CNN and MSNBC cheered Yates’s effort.

Trust me, you’re not going to see Sally Yates or any other liberal talking head advocating the charging of John Kerry with violations of the Logan Act for his latest acts of mendacity against our country.  Because liberal outrage is purely transactional.

Are we sure Robert Mueller is even qualified for his job? – Our jack-booted Special Counsel and his band of Clinton/Obama thugs suffered a second consecutive very bad day in court on Saturday, as yet another federal judge ruled against them, this time in a request for a trial delay.

Remember back on a Friday in February, when the very oily Rod Rosenstein held a hasty press conference to breathlessly announce that Mueller was issuing hilariously bogus indictments of 13 Russian defendants for conducting “social media warfare” on the U.S. during the 2016 campaign?  Remember how we speculated at the time that this was all done purely for show, an effort to influence public opinion, but safe in the belief that they’d never have to try to prove their goofy case in court because none of these defendants would ever show up for trial?

Yeah, that didn’t exactly work out for Rosenstein and Mueller.  See, one of the Russian defendants, a company called Concord Management, decided to show up and defend itself, pleading not guilty to all charges.  Hey, that’s not how this was all supposed to work, was it?

Suddenly, Mueller and his thugs find themselves in the uncomfortable position of having to demonstrate how 13 defendants somehow tilted a national election in a nation of 315 million people in favor of Donald Trump essentially by creating a bunch of fake accounts to send out messages on Twitter and Facebook on a total expenditure of a few million dollars.  That’s going to be sort of tough to prove, especially given that the messaging sent out from those fake accounts was both anti-Clinton and anti-Trump.

So the Mueller/Rosenstein strategy here was to delay, and they filed a delay request with the judge in the case, Trump appointee Dabney Friedrich, citing questions about whether or not Concord had ever been properly served in the case, a novel claim coming as it does from the prosecution.  The lawyers for Concord opposed the delay, saying the question of proper service is irrelevant and they are ready to go, and their client has a right to a speedy trial under the Constitution.

The lawyers hilariously said that “the briefing sought by the Special Counsel’s motion is pettifoggery,” and said that Mueller and his team of thugs are not entitled to their own “special rules.”

Unlike any Obama appointee, Judge Friedrich has actually read the Constitution, and thus agreed with the defense. So, either we will soon get to see the spectacle of how Mueller’s evil minions try to prove such obviously fake charges,  Mueller will decide to dismiss the case against Concord, or he and his minions will try to get their delay by appealing up the chain of courts.

I’m betting on the latter, but it sure would be fun to see this sham go to trial.

Just another day in the conspiracy to take down President Trump is falling apart America.

That is all.

Hillary Clinton: That Party Guest Who Just Won’t Shut Up and Leave

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

It’s not because you’re a woman.  It’s because you’re so incredibly tiresome. – The Pantsuit Princess, dressed in her favorite Dr. Evil attire, complained to an audience that she is tired of being told by fellow Democrats to stop running around the world blaming everyone but herself for her loss in the 2016 election.  The Fainting Felon whined that “no one ever told a man (who’d lost a presidential election) to go away.”  She then cited Al Gore, John Kerry, John McCain and Mitt Romney as examples.

Of course, as with literally every other word that escapes from the Coughing Crook’s lips in public, this latest in such a long, long list of complaints is an outright lie.  Of the four examples she cites, there were all manner of Democrats at the time telling the incessantly complaining and lying Al Gore and John Kerry to just go away and shut up already after they, too, went around the country whining about how mean ol’ George W. Bush had done all sorts of things to “steal” the 2000 and 2004 elections from them.  Gore was especially resented by Democrats who just wanted to move on for his refusal to just. shut. UP. before he decided to shift gears and go get rich from mounting his global warming scam.

As for McCain and Romney, well, they’re Republicans (ok, well, McCain is sort of a Republican, anyway), and when Republicans lose a presidential election, they accept their defeat and move on, so yes, no one had to tell them to go away.  Even Richard Nixon, after having the 1960 election stolen from him by John F. Kennedy’s mob associates, decided to just accept the result and stay quiet about it for the good of the country.

But of course, with the Grasping Grifter, the good of the country never comes to mind.  It’s all about her.  Everything is and always has been all about her.

In the end, Hillary is like that drunk guy at the party who just won’t go home, still sitting on your sofa at 3:00 in the morning asking for another beer and telling annoying stories you’ve heard a thousand times before.  You know, the guy you have to escort out your front door and shove into the Uber you called for him so he won’t kill himself trying to drive home.  That guy.

Just as that guy never goes away voluntarily, no one should expect the Whining Wino’s worldwide whining tour to end anytime soon.

If you want to own a Tesla, you probably better go get one soon. – The shaky electric car maker Tesla announced on Friday that it is having to recall almost half of the automobiles it has manufactured in its entire history due to corroding bolts that threaten the loss of power steering.

This new recall of more than 123,000 of the company’s Model S sedans comes amid ongoing issues that have prevented the production of more than a handful of the company’s new, more compact Model 3 sedans, and CEO Elon Musk’s struggles to raise more money to keep his chronically unprofitable company afloat.  This is a company whose business model only “works” when it is propped up by massive taxpayer subsidies and a stellar PR campaign consisting of a never-ending series of bold promises for the future.  Even with billions of dollars worth of those subsidies, Tesla has only managed to turn a “profit” in two calendar quarters during its entire existence, and the constant churning of unfulfilled promises suffers from the law of diminishing returns over time.

Tesla’s stock has lost 1/3rd of its value in recent weeks, and that selloff promises to continue next week after the latest recall announcement, which came after markets closed.  Barring an influx of new, highly-risky private equity, the company seems on the verge of running out of cash in the near future, and may have to resort to issuing a round of new stock, which would diminish the value of current shares even further.

Musk has repeatedly proven to be very adept at finding the money necessary to keep his company afloat in the near term, and will likely find a way to keep it going this time as well.  But in the longer term, Tesla sure looks like a proverbial house of cards that appears destined to at some point collapse under the weight of its fundamental inability to produce cars at a competitive price.  You know, like every other auto maker on the face of the earth must do in order to survive.

Just another day in the Pantsuit Princes won’t go away willingly America.

That is all.
