Biden Re-Starts Obama’s War in Syria

Well, now we know why congressional Democrats want China Joe to relinquish control of the nuclear codes. – Four years of peace was just too much for Democrat voters and our corrupt news media to stand, so they did everything they could to ensure that life-long warmonger China Joe Biden was installed into the presidency.  Last night, the fruits of their votes and constant propaganda operation against peacemaker Donald J. Trump paid off with the bombing of sites in Syria without any prior notice to congress or the American people, and, at least as of this writing early Friday morning, no White House or presidential statement afterwards attempting to justify this unilateral action.

None. Zip, Zero, Nada.

A Pentagon spokesman did issue a statement, but so far from our sock puppet president, bupkis.

From a story at the New York Post:

The US on Thursday launched an airstrike in Syria that targeted facilities used by  Iran-backed militia groups — the first military action taken by the Biden administration, officials said.

The Pentagon said the strike was in retaliation for a Feb. 15 rocket attack against a US military base at Erbil International Airport in Northern Iraq that killed a US-led coalition contractor and left others wounded, including an American service member.

“I’m confident in the target that we went after, we know what we hit,” Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin told reporters after the airstrike.

“We’re confident that that target was being used by the same Shia militants that conducted the [Feb. 15] strikes,” he said.

Pentagon spokesman John Kirby said the attack “destroyed multiple facilities at a border control point used by a number of Iranian- backed militant groups.”

[End]

Four years ago, then-President Trump made the mistake of assuming  his military and national security advisors were dealing with him truthfully when they told him he needed to lob some cruise missiles into Syria, and he fell for it. Immediately after the missiles landed, the President issued a statement explaining the rationale for the action, which of course he later discovered was false. Because that’s what the military/industrial/Swamp war machine does.

Later in his administration, in January of last year, President Trump hit the head terrorist on earth with a U.S. guided missile, taking him out at the Baghdad airport as he attempted to get out of Iraq following a meeting there. In response to that action, here is what private citizen Joe Biden had to say about it:

Oh. Hey, did China Joe have your “informed consent” when he lobbed missiles into Syria that no doubt killed and maimed innocent civilians last night? Yeah, didn’t think so.

The next day, here is what candidate Joe Biden had to say about how he would wield his power if elected president:

In fact, China Joe just used military power irresponsibly and as a first resort and has just gotten us back into another forever war in the Middle East, a war that he, working with Obama and John McCain, actually helped to start in the first place, creating and arming ISIS along the way. That’s the truth of Biden’s involvement in the Syrian civil war, and he is obviously bound and determined to crank it back up now.

Or let me amend that: China Joe is not in charge of anything. Let’s be honest about that. This decision was likely made at the Pentagon and someone might have let Biden know about it by sending him a message through his earpiece, just in case he was still awake eating tapioca pudding or Jello at 6:00 in the evening.

Biden himself is so out of it that yesterday he had to be reminded by Kamala Harris to put his mask on at an event at the White House. That reminder came as he was walking over to try to shake hands with some special guest, an act he has been instructed to avoid for more than a year now due to all the COVID pretense.

Check this out:

This man has no idea where he is or what he is doing at any given moment. He hasn’t made a statement about the missile strikes on Syria because he has no clue why they happened.

But this gets even better. Here’s what Biden’s spokesperson tweeted after the Trump missile strike in 2017:

Think anyone in the White House Press Corps – outside of Fox’s Peter Doocey – will repeat Jen Circle Back Psaki’s statement back to her and ask her to explain why this time is different at today’s press briefing?

Yeah, don’t hold your breath.

That is all.

Joe Manchin: The Dreamy Prom Date Who Doesn’t Show Up

Geez, you mean the Republican version of John McCain wasn’t bad enough? – The reliable leftists at Politico have a story out this morning in which they portray West Virginia Democrat Joe Manchin as the “Democrat version of John McCain.”

Hooboy, spare us that fate, please.

The basic thesis of the piece is that Manchin is a “conservative throwback” to a past generation of Democrats, and a guy who regularly “speaks his mind” and votes against his own party.

Here’s an excerpt:

The West Virginia senator has become the central character in Democrats’ control of Washington, a conservative throwback who speaks his mind and is maddeningly frustrating to liberals. He sided with his party to give them a critical vote toward approving President Joe Biden’s $1.9 trillion coronavirus stimulus plan, but is already vowing to cut back Democrats’ dreams of a $15 minimum wage and limit who gets direct checks.

“He’s kind of the Democratic version of John McCain,” said Sen. Jon Tester (D-Mont.). “I say that partially in jest. But partially it’s true: Joe’s a hard guy to figure out how to lead. You know? He dances to his own music.”

Like McCain, the moonshine-swigging former quarterback isn’t afraid to let his colleagues know where he stands on a given day, either in the hallways of the Capitol or on cable news airwaves. Manchin often publicly discusses how he’s struggling with issues or tough votes. In a nod to his state, he lives on a boat while in D.C. named “Almost Heaven.”

[End]

But wait: Is this really true? Oh, Manchin certainly talks a good game, as long as Chuck Schumer isn’t hanging around to bully him. But does he actually follow through with the votes when it comes right down to truly being a McCain-style “maverick”?

Not really, no. Hell, just re-read the first paragraph of that excerpt: “The West Virginia senator has become the central character in Democrats’ control of Washington, a conservative throwback who speaks his mind and is maddeningly frustrating to liberals. He sided with his party to give them a critical vote toward approving President Joe Biden’s $1.9 trillion coronavirus stimulus plan, but is already vowing to cut back Democrats’ dreams of a $15 minimum wage and limit who gets direct checks.” [emphasis added]

What does that tell you? Manchin talked a good game about the need to control absurd wasteful spending that permeates that bill, but then when it came time to cast a vote, he was bullied by Schumer into supporting it. That’s not anything like McCain, who had no problem siding with the Democrats whenever it fit his personal political agenda, advanced his own personal interests, and got him a 15-minute appearance with Chris Matthews on MSNBC’s “Hardball.”

That’s not to say Manchin isn’t like McCain in some respects. Witness this two-paragraph passage from the story:

“Joe loves to be in the middle of the action. And if you’re unsure about what he’s thinking in that moment, just turn on any TV set and there he is,” said Sen. Shelley Moore Capito, Manchin’s Republican counterpart from West Virginia.

Making known his dissension from Democratic Party orthodoxy is essential to Manchin’s political survival in a state former President Donald Trump won twice, by roughly 40 points. And though he has long sought to be an essential Senate moderate, he has found mostly frustration during his 10 years as a senator, eventually declaring of the hallowed chamber: “This place sucks.”

[End]

Yes, truly, the most dangerous place in Washington, DC for the final 20 years of his life was to be standing anywhere between John McCain and a TV camera. Today, that is most definitely true of Manchin, who is not even a little bit shy about standing before reporters and talking about his intentions of opposing the Democrat orthodoxy on an array of key issues. As the Politico writers point out, he knows he has to talk a good game to at least provide the appearance of moderation to the voters back home.

But again, when it comes down to actual vote-casting time, the only votes that he is allowed by Schumer to cast against the interests of the Democrat party are those in which he would not be the deciding vote, and thus do not matter.

So, if you’re one of the likely millions of conservatives who are currently hanging their hats on the prospect of good ol’ Joe Manchin killing Democrat wet dreams like repealing the filibuster rule or packing the Supreme Court, you are most likely going to be in for the letdown of your life when those matters actually come up for votes in the senate. Because the truth about Joe Manchin is that he is like McCain only in the sense that he craves attention and says things against his party’s orthodoxy when they serve his personal political agenda and get him a segment or two on MSNBC or CNN.

But when it comes down to sucking it up and casting the votes that would actually make a huge difference for the country, Manchin has always been and will always be useless.

Don’t get all dressed up waiting for Joe Manchin to be your hero, because he is the proverbial dreamy prom date who doesn’t show up.

That is all.

Lindsey Graham and Liz Cheney: The Perfect Match in the DC Swamp

Oh, my, what a shocker this is. – You won’t ever believe this, y’all: Lindsey Graham supports Liz Cheney! Why, who could have ever seen this one coming?

Sen. Graham has always been a shameless sellout, but this dancing over what he believes is the political corpse of Donald Trump while it’s still warm really sets a new low for this disciple of John McCain. Graham’s always been the worst example of the follower culture in Washington, DC, a guy whose nature abhors the personal exercise of leadership and always feels the need to latch onto some father or mother figure to follow around like Grover Dill, the little toady from A Christmas Story, followed Scut Farkas around the back alleys of their Indiana town.

Graham spent over a decade following McCain around like a little puppy dog, always willing to jump and and shout “yeah!” anytime McCain was figuratively yanking some poor kid’s arm behind his back, taunting him to yell “Uncle!” It was the lamest act in DC right up until McCain’s death, after which Graham quickly latched onto following then-President Trump around and sucking up to him at every opportunity. A disgusting display that everyone knew was fake, as clearly demonstrated by Graham’s refusal to use his chairmanship of the Senate Judiciary Committee to investigate the Obamagate cabal until it was too late.

But now, Trump’s gone and Graham is blowing in the wind like a an old clipper ship being tossed about in a storm, desperately searching for some other father or mother figure to latch onto. Enter Liz Cheney, the warmongering daughter of the former warmongering Vice President appropriately named Dick, a potential father figure Graham no doubt would have loved to follow around if only he hadn’t already had his lips firmly attached to John McCain’s behind throughout the entirety of the George W. Bush years.

Once again we see how phony Graham’s support for President Trump really was. Liz Cheney is in deep trouble today for the very fact that she chose to become one of handful of House Republicans to vote to impeach Trump on January 5. A true friend of Trump and believer in his peace-through-strength agenda would look on with glee as Cheney twisted in the wind and her approval rating back in Wyoming dropped into the teens as a result of her betrayal.

But not Sen. Graham. He’s only too happy to come toady for Cheney, since, in his heart of hearts, he is a true believer in the “Middle-East-wars-without-end” philosophy that she shares with her daddy and the dead McCain. Don’t believe me? Take a look at the second “I love Liz” tweet he sent out yesterday:

When Graham talks about his and Cheney’s desire to keep our military “well-prepared” to “confront radical Islam” and “take the fight to them,” he’s rubbing his hands in glee at the prospect of supporting the decision by Joe Biden’s handlers to send thousands more American military personnel into harm’s way so that all of the defense contractors that he and Cheney have spent so many years sucking up to can keep on cranking out tanks and planes and missiles under multi-hundred-billion dollar defense contracts. And hey, if the makers of those body bags and artificial limbs see an uptick in their business as well, then so much the better as far as Lindsey and Liz are concerned.

Oh, Trump kept the defense contractors employed, too, but all the peace his policies were causing to break out all over the Middle East and Africa was really bad for business in the long run. The lack of new wars meant that all that military equipment and ordinance wasn’t being showcased; not enough missiles were being used up in order to necessitate the manufacture of new ones; not enough usage of planes and helicopters and tanks meant a downturn in the contractors’ maintenance and replacement business lines.

Now Trump’s been banished and Lindsey and Liz and those who share their mindset are ascendant again. Why, Liz is even third in line in House GOP leadership, and thus wields real power from her congressional seat from Wyoming. Graham and the rest of the warmonger crowd can’t let that just slip away – if she ends up getting beaten by some challenger in Wyoming, why, he might not be someone they can’t count on.

And so, Lindsey has found a new leader to latch onto and tweets his support for her, no doubt after getting a phone call from Daddy Dick. This is what Lindsey Graham does; it is who he is.

No surprise here.

That is all.

Cindy McCain Endorses Joe Biden – Nobody Could’ve Seen That One Coming!

So much media BS, so little time… – Reuters put out a “breaking” report last night reporting the fact that Cindy McCain, the vain, grasping 2nd wife of the dead John McCain, is – gasp! – not going to endorse President Donald Trump for re-election! Who could have possibly seen that one coming?

Seriously, why is this news? Reuters describes Ms. McCain as a “prominent Republican.” But is that really true? What evidence is there that Cindy McCain is in fact a Republican at all, other than possibly a voter registration card in Arizona? Hell, Jake Tapper could go register to vote and claim to be a Republican, but that wouldn’t mean he actually is one.

It’s like when Cher, Rob Reiner and Barbra Streisand dress up in their matching wicked witch costumes for their annual Halloween party – does putting on those costumes mean they really are witches?

Ok, don’t answer that.

The point here is, why is this news? Why would one of the major newswire services publish a report about this? It would be “news” if anyone outside of Washington, DC gave a rat’s ass what Cindy McCain thinks, because her endorsement of Creepy Uncle McWifeMolester might influence others to do the same. But the truth is nobody outside of Washington, DC give’s a rat’s ass what Cindy McCain thinks; thus, no one is going to be influenced by her endorsement.

So, again, why is this even a story? You know why. We all know why. This is what the corrupt news media does to any Republican presidential candidate.

For the corrupt Democrat toadies in the media, this is also just another continuation of the glorification of John McCain, done for the simple fact that McCain was both a traitor to his party and Arizona voters over a span of decades, and a prominent Trump hater. McCain thus became the media’s favorite fake Republican for the simple fact that he consistently provided corrupt media outlets with a tool with which to beat first George W. Bush and later Donald Trump over the head. He provided them with the pretense to claim that those President’s weren’t really doing the right thing because a prominent member of their own party was criticizing them.

All of that media/McCain love affair flew right out the window, of course, when McCain tragically became the GOP’s presidential nominee to hand the presidency to Barack Hussein Obama in 2008. For the better part of that year, McCain was suddenly nothing more than another evil Republican in the media’s eyes, a racist, a homophobe, a misogynist, and any other -phobe or -ist they could think to tag him with. He was running against not just a Democrat, but The ONE, and thus had to be smeared and demonized.

But all the corrupt reporters flew right back to the McCain love nest as soon as the campaign ended because they really do need a pet Republican in the U.S. Senate, a role that is now comfortably filled by Milquetoast Mitt Romney.

The thing is, once you get past all of the media idolization, the 9 days of funerals and memorials, the undeserved lying in state at the Capitol, John McCain was just another senator, and not really even an especially accomplished one. His one landmark piece of legislation in over 30 years in congress, the McCain/Feingold campaign finance reform act, has opened the door for billions of dollars in dark money flowing into the political process, much of it from foreign sources, as we have seen in every Democrat presidential campaign in this century.

Worse, his efforts to intervene in foreign policy helped involve the U.S. in 19-year quagmires in Afghanistan and Iraq, and helped Barack Obama and John Kerry create a Syrian “rebel” group that ultimately became ISIS.

McCain was no more accomplished as a Senator than a Sonny Perdue or a Kirsten Gillibrand, but because he was a shameless, self-promoting “maverick” who has happy to show up on MSNBC twice a week to bash W or Trump, the media loved him.

Thus, McCain’s grasping wife Cindy, who begged President Trump for an ambassadorship and was denied it, is still able to garner the attention of her dead hubby’s adoring fans at Reuters whenever she continues her husband’s Republican-bashing habit.

It’s despicable, and really just kind of stupid, but that is what this country’s mainstream news media is.

That is all.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

[End]

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

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

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

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

[End]

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

[End]

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

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

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

That is all.

Gerrold Nadler Presided Over a Chilling, Dark Train Wreck of a Hearing With William Barr

“Disgrace” is not the only word to use to describe the behavior of Chairman Gerrold Nadler and his fellow Democrats on the House Judiciary Committee yesterday during their hearing with Attorney General William Barr, but it’s the most accurate. Other appropriate words to use to describe it would be despicable, depraved, demented, deluded, and, as Mark Levin hilariously said it, the most miserable collection of “assholes” ever to exist in the U.S. congress.

Any Republican who, after watching that proceeding, continues to refer to Democrat members of congress as “colleagues” or, as Mitch McConnell and Lindsey Graham and all the other Senate RINOs love to say, “our friends on the other side of the aisle” needs to be defeated in their next re-election attempt. These are not your friends; they are not your colleagues, a word that demands some semblance of collegiality be present in order to be true. They are your enemies, and that is how they regard you.

Simply put, this hearing was delayed by the fact that Nadler supposedly was involved in a “car wreck” on his way to work in the morning (doubtful this is actually true), and he then presided over a massive train wreck for the rest of the day.

The U.S. system of government – the constitution, the separation of powers among three branches of the federal government, and the power sharing between the national government and the various states – is inextricably dependent upon two fundamental factors: 1) that the voters will by and large elect people of good will who love this country to become their representatives in the government; and 2) a spirit of collegiality and compromise between the major parties and factions that allow the government to get things done.

If it was not already obvious to you, then yesterday’s hearing should have shattered any doubt that Democrats have completely abandoned both of those fundamental foundations of the American Republic. After watching that spectacle of Democrat after Democrat after Democrat refusing to allow the witness to answer a question without childishly shouting “reclaiming my time” or rudely interrupting him when his answers made them look even more foolish, or even allowing the witness to take a 5 minute bathroom break after several hours of uninterrupted clown show, if you still believe that those Democrats are people of good will who love this country and have any interest in compromising their totalitarian aspirations in any way, shape or form, then you are a foolish person indeed.

John McCain, one of the most despicable RINO surrender monkeys to ever serve in the United States Congress, was fond of praising the level of “comity” that he maintained with his Democrat friends in the Senate. That was in fact McCain’s favorite word to toss out there whenever he was sucking up to Chris Matthews on MSNBC or Wolf Blitzer on CNN.

The definition of “comity” is “courtesy and considerate behavior towards others.” If McCain were alive today (has his funeral ended yet?) I would love to ask him at what point in yesterday’s hearing did he observe “comity” emitting from his “friends on the other side of the aisle?”

Yesterday was a complete abandonment by the Democrats of any further pretense of engaging in the normal functioning of the American government. It was a clear and unambiguous signal that they believe they are going to succeed in stealing the November elections and regain power, and when they do, they are going to punish anyone who has opposed them. At long last, Nancy Pelosi, one of the most evil women to ever occupy this planet, sees her end goals in sight and her minions are jumping the gun on taking her retribution.

If you are a thinking person who was shocked and disgusted by yesterday’s display, consider this: That was just one day. Under a Joe Biden presidency armed with majorities in both houses of congress and the filibuster rule having been repealed by the Democrat senate, this is what every day will look like in America. You will be under constant assault for 1,461 days. Think you will survive that? Think the country can?

These people hate you and would rather you were dead. If that is not clear to you after yesterday, then you cannot be convinced until it is too late to do anything about it.

America simply cannot be governed by these lunatics for four years and survive intact.

That is all.

RINOs Rand Paul and Mike Lee are Part of the Problem in the DC Swamp

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

Guest Contribution By Gregg Updike

If I remember correctly, several years ago Rand Paul was held up and harassed by the newly created TSA at an airport in either Nashville or Kentucky. He also had his ribs badly busted up at his home a few years back by some leftist radical wacko as a protest to something that got the left “OUTRAGED” over something Trump did to “OUTRAGE” them.

Same with Rep. Steve Scalise of Louisiana and a bunch or GOP congressmen getting ambushed at a softball field by a Bernie Sanders’ supporter. In the past three years, we have seen numerous elected Democrats arguing for and promoting outright violence against members of the Trump Administration, Justice Brett Kavanaugh, and other GOP/Trump supporters. Can you imagine the hue and cry and “OUTRAGE” that would happen if top Democrat bananas like a Rep. Steny Hoyer got shot or if a Sen. Corey Booker got assaulted by a right wing-nut?

I just don’t understand how any Republican – whether conservative or moderate – feels compelled to blast this president to the liberal MSM; they seem to relish the opportunity to channel their inner McCain and spew their guts, which displays their RINO tendencies. These supposedly smart and savvy politicians make these appearances on enemy-held TV and constantly get played – or maybe they want to be played – with the net effect of giving the Trump Administration a black eye, a PR hit to no positive purpose.

What did Lee or Paul gain by bitching on TV about yesterday’s intel briefing? When did Barack the Obama ever give you a brief, or listen to ANY GOP input?

Don’t these idiots realize that the MSM would do everything they could to outright defeat and destroy the Pauls and the Lees of the world if given the chance? The media’s goal is to totally destroy the Republican Party and the conservative movement. They promote the radical, violent ANTIFA and BLM groups, and denigrate and impugn the peaceful conservative TEA Party. Yet these idiots – Lee and Paul – keep lining up to give the MSM ammo to hurt Trump, and by extension, themselves; quit giving them fodder.

I don’t remember any Republican (if they ever did, it was always couched in the most tepid terms possible), and certainly no Democrat ever blasting Obama for his “War Criminal Acts” of droning actual American citizens without due process (Are there any Democrats who believe in the rule of law, or due process?), or any other liberal policy when he was president. Where was the pushback on Fast and Furious, the IRS abuse scandal, pallets of cash to Iran, Dreamer EOs etc.?

Why can’t these politicians just shut up and be thought fools rather than open their mouths and remove all doubts? Taking opportunities to gratuitously rip or denigrate Trump on TV does not serve them well especially when they represent Red States/Districts and serves no good purpose. Leave that to the Democrats, and quit giving Schumer, Pelosi, and the MSM metaphorical orgasms!.

Wise up, grow up, and support our pro-American president! Be part of the solution and quit giving aid and comfort to the DEM/MEDIA ENEMY! If you RINOS can’t see the writing on the wall, or reality, then retire and let someone with brains and guts take your place.

Better yet, the primaries will soon be upon us which signals the opening of RINO Season. To all Red States and reasonable Purple States, please primary these old war horse losers and get some conservative leaders to replace them.

That is all.

On a Slow News Thursday the Media Just Made the ‘News’ up

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

The two biggest news ‘stories’ on December 26 weren’t ‘news’ at all.  – The fake news media went semi-wild with two stories on Thursday, pushing them relentlessly hour after hour on a day that was otherwise devoid of sexy stories to push.

The first was about GOP Alaska Senator Lisa Murkowski, who all the leftists in the corrupt media establishment are praying will be one of the RINOs in the Senate who will vote to remove President Trump from office in a Senate trail, assuming there ever actually is such a thing. Hey, she was a spineless traitor on the Kavanaugh nomination after she was filmed being bullied in the hallway by Dianne Feinstein – why wouldn’t she commit the ultimate betrayal against a President she has never liked?

It’s a valid question, and it might even happen eventually. The problem is that today’s story being pushed by the corrupt media doesn’t really give us any indication one way or the other.

Here’s what happened: Murkowski was asked by a local Anchorage TV reporter if she approved of the promise made by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell that he would conduct a Senate trial “in total coordination” with White House lawyers. Murkowski answered that “When I heard that, I was disturbed.”

Ok, so, the spineless RINO was disturbed. Murkowski then went onto say this:

“We have to take that step back from being hand in glove with the defense,” Murkowski told KTUU. “And so [when] I … heard what Leader McConnell had said, I happened to think that that has further confused the process.”

Ok, so, the spineless RINO is disturbed and thinks McConnell has confused the process when in fact he has crystal clarified it. What else would we expect from a spineless RINO who desperately wants to pretend to be all things to all people instead of standing on something resembling political principle? The truth is that Murkowski’s dissembling here was exactly what anyone who pays any attention to her normal behavior would have expected from her. It would have been a shock had she in fact said anything else.

But it is a long way from a principle-devoid Senator dissembling as a means of getting a pesky reporter off her back to actually casting a vote to remove a duly-elected President from office. Murkowski’s statement here was not ‘news;’ it was just another day at the office for her.

Then there’s the other story that ‘broke’ early in the afternoon about dead former Senator John McCain funneling “5 reports by Christopher Steele” to James Comey in late 2017. This ‘news’ is contained in the report by DOJ IG Michael Horowitz, a report that was made public on December 9, which was two-and-a-half weeks ago.

This is news? Really? McCain’s efforts to distribute reports funneled to him and his staff by Steele have been well known since early 2018. This business about “five separate reports” is nothing but wordplay. All five of those Steele-manufactured “reports” ended up being included in the infamous fake Dossier, and the thought that the FBI was not aware of their existence until they were handed to Comey by McCain is absurd.

But hey, it was that rarest of rare things of the Trump presidency today – a very slow news day – so the people pushing ‘news’ 24 hours a day to attract viewers and website clicks were desperate.

For the rest of us, it’ll be a relief when the holidays are over and we are back to having half a dozen real news cycles every day.

Lindsey Graham is in a Deep State Hole of his Own Making

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

The First Rule of Holes: When you find yourself in a hole, stop digging. –  South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham is neck-deep in a big ol’ Deep State hole, and he apparently doesn’t have any idea how to get out of it.

Faced with rising anger among the supporters of President Donald Trump – who won his state by 14% of the vote in 2016 – over his refusal to follow up all year on promises to issue a raft of subpoenas and hold hearings to dig at the truth behind Spygate and the neverending coup attempts targeting the President, Graham thought it would be a peachy dodge to hold a press conference today at which he introduced his meaningless resolution condemning the House impeachment circus led by San Fran Nan and Bug-Eyes Schiff:

Far from placating any Trump supporters, Graham’s meaningless stunt only made them angrier, judging from the reactions on Twitter and other social media platforms. I would copy some of the responses over here, but they’re pretty much all obscene at this point. People are really angry, for very good reason.

Graham’s stunt also had the perverse effect of enraging the left-wing social media Outrage Mob, which had been quite happy with the Senator’s talk-a-big-game-but-do-nothing-real posturing since he assumed the Chair of the Senate Judiciary Committee in January. So now, literally everyone is angry at Lindsey Graham, except for the Deep State minions his studious inaction serves to protect.

You get the feeling from watching Graham’s presser today that he is just scared to death. His voice was shaky, his answers soft and uncertain, his forehead sweaty – he just looks and acts like a guy who in his heart wants to do the right thing, but just can’t, for whatever reason.

The most generous line of speculation about Graham’s refusal to act in any meaningful way is that, whether he knew it in January and February when he was making bold promises to hold an aggressive hearing schedule, he understands now that all roads related to Spygate ultimately to his personal hero, the execrable John McCain. Anyone who spends five minutes looking at the publicly-available information related to the coup cabal’s spying efforts on the Trump Campaign and Transition team, and the creation of the Steele Dossier very quickly realizes that McCain and his office were intimately involved in all of it.

Thus, if Graham were to actually follow through on his promises to conduct a thorough investigation, he would inevitably end up revealing even more information that would negatively impact McCain’s already soiled reputation. McCain is a man who Graham literally idolizes, a role model who Graham eagerly followed around and emulated for two solid decades. It’s easy to understand why he would break dozens of promises in order to protect his life’s hero.

That, as I say, is the generous speculation about Graham’s refusal to act. Other lines involve him being compromised, threatened or just plain corrupt at his core. Who knows what the truth really is? We may never find out, just as we will probably never find out what really motivated the useless Jeff Sessions.

What we do know, though, is that the stunt Graham pulled today only served to anger people of all political persuasions more than they already were. The Senator needs to quit flailing around like this, quit doing thrice-weekly appearances with Sean “Tick-Tock” Hannity, stop talking in public altogether for a few weeks for his own good. Just go back to focusing on approving the President’s judicial nominees at a record pace, and leave it at that.

Stop digging, Senator.

That is all.

129 Republicans Disgrace Themselves in House Show Vote on Syria

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

Remember those Republicans who supported Nancy Pelosi and betrayed the American voters with this vote. – I have very often been thoroughly disgusted with the behavior of spineless, disloyal Republicans in the U.S. Congress, but seldom as disgusted as I felt on Wednesday afternoon.

That was when we got news that 129 Republican members of the U.S. House of Representatives joined with Nancy Pelosi and the Democrat caucus in a vote to condemn President Trump’s decision to pull U.S. military personnel out of harm’s way as the Turkish military invaded Northern Syria on Sunday. That decision involved about 50 U.S. military advisors who would have otherwise been trapped between the Turkish and Kurdish forces, and another 1,000 or so U.S. personnel who were already well away from the front.

This vote was a shameful act, and I’m frankly embarrassed to see the names of Texans like Kevin Brady, Dan Crenshaw and John Ratcliffe on the list of “yea” votes for this despicable, non-binding resolution. Here is why these were shameful votes: The U.S. Constitution grants Congress the sole power to declare war on another country. If these posturing, blustering politicians truly feel so horrified by the President’s decision to keep our country’s military personnel safe, and so strongly about siding with the Kurdish forces – who, by the way, regularly make incursions into Turkey against U.S. advice – then they need to man-up and hold a vote on a declaration of war.

Doing what they did on Wednesday is simply political posturing designed to allow them to go tell their voters that they bravely defied the President in a vote that in reality does nothing but provide political support for the Democrat Party. It’s disgusting, and I had hoped that I would not see the three men listed above – whom I have held in high regard – engaging in this sort of political cowardice.

Most Americans have no regard at all for Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, who is a despicable, brutish thug. But the centuries-old conflict between the Turks and the Kurds is every bit as unsolvable as all the myriad other centuries-old conflicts involving various peoples and religious factions in the Middle East. These conflicts existed long before the United States of America was born, and will persist long after the Democrats succeed in dividing the U.S. into two or more separate nations.

They are, in other words, not our problem, and if the last 28 years have taught us nothing else, they should have taught every American that neither our country nor any other nation on earth, no matter how well-intentioned or powerful, is capable of resolving them peacefully. All we are capable of doing is ensuring the ongoing killing takes place in a reorganized fashion.

Donald Trump was elected to the presidency in large part to get our military personnel out of the middle of never-ending conflicts like this one, and that is what he decided to do on Sunday.  He inherited a set of quagmires from his four predecessors in office, holding a mandate from the voters to get our country out of them.

For members of congress, for warmonger John McCain disciples like Lindsey Graham, who are currently wringing their hands about the supposed “rebirth of ISIS,” the way to prevent that being a threat to America is to act on the other main reason why Donald Trump won the 2016 election and pass legislation designed to get control of our damn borders.

In other words, instead of going on Fox News and CNN to channel John McCain and lecture the President about “abandoning our allies,” Graham and Brady and Ratcliffe and Chrenshaw need to be going on those channels and others to pound the Democrats for abandoning the American people.

But that would take political will, something that is always in short supply among Republican members of congress.

Again, here is the link to the roll call on Wednesday’s show vote. Memorize those 129 Republican names, and if one of them represents your district, do something to let them know about your displeasure with yesterday’s abandonment of the American people. Because the 2016 election was a referendum on this very issue, and their side lost.

That is all.

Bad Lindsey Graham Has Made a Comeback

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

Bad Lindsey Graham has re-taken the body. – In case you hadn’t noticed, Bad Lindsey Graham has made a comeback this year. Good Lindsey Graham came increasingly to the fore last year as John McCain’s absence due to illness and subsequent death released Graham from his daily duties of following McCain around like a puppy on a leash.

Unleashed Lindsey turned out to be a pretty consistently conservative guy and loyal supporter of his country’s best interests and of a President from his own party, quite the direct contrast to Senator From the News Media McCain. Go figure. He was so good, in fact, that his powerful, impromptu speech before the Senate Judiciary Committee in the midst of the Democrats’ despicable smearing of Brett Kavanaugh last October very likely changed the entire course of that nomination.

So it was that, when Unleashed Lindsey ascended to the Chairmanship of the Senate Judiciary Committee in January, conservatives were encouraged that he would continue the aggressive conduct of the Committee’s business that we had seen under Chuck Grassley. Grassley had done stellar work in confirming judicial nominees and investigating the real criminals in the Spygate scandal. Unleashed Lindsey himself talked a good game, promising repeatedly throughout the winter and into the spring to use his chairmanship to aggressively pursue the Obama-era scumbags who utterly corrupted the FBI and intelligence agencies. As recently as March 25, Graham was overtly promising that his Committee would conduct its own, parallel investigation into Spygate’s origins even as Attorney General William Barr conducted his own inquiry at the Department of Justice.

But since then? Crickets.

As the Democrat-dominated House committees have tossed out hundreds of subpoenas and conducted an aggressive hearing schedule designed to turn public opinion against President Donald Trump and the GOP, Unleashed Lindsey has done…nothing. Not a single hearing. Not one subpoena. No letters to the DOJ containing criminal referrals.

Nothing. Zero. Zip. Zilch. Nada.

Unleashed Lindsey, it seems, has been re-leashed, and this time we don’t have John McCain to blame. Indeed, there is no difference at all between Re-Leashed Lindsey’s conduct of the Judiciary Committee and the conduct of the Senate Intelligence Committee by its’ Chairman, deep state skunk Richard Burr of North Carolina. With Republican “friends” like these controlling the key Senate committees, President Trump has no need for enemies.

So, who has “gotten to” Re-Leashed Lindsey? Does it matter, really? Back in early May, the Campaign Update expressed the concern that Graham was one of the most easily-compromisable senators in Washington. It appears that concern was well-founded.

Graham and his Committee continue to confirm President Trump’s judicial nominees at a record pace, and for that we should all be grateful, since Obama, in his efforts to corrupt every institution in our society, had obviously succeeded in corrupting the federal judiciary as well. But Re-Leashed Lindsey’s do-nothing posture towards his Committee’s investigative powers will, if continued, forever be a stain on his senate career.

That is all.

Joe Biden Would be the Democrats’ Weakest Possible Nominee

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

Tired of all this #WINNING yet? – The fake news media pretty much ignored the story, but U.S. weekly unemployment claims fell to their lowest point since the records began being kept half a century ago last week. The Trump economy is so strong that even Sears, which has been shuttering outlets since the Carter Administration, is opening new stores again.

The ADP private sector jobs report showed only 129,000 new jobs being created in March, but that low number is largely due to the fact that there are more than 1,000,000 more job openings today than there are unemployed workers. Given that, we can expect the government’s non-farm payroll report to be issued this morning to also come in with a low number. [Note: The BLS jobs report actually came in at a very strong 196,000, beating expectations once again.]

All of which ties back to the reality that the biggest problem we have in Trump’s economy is finding enough qualified workers to fill all the jobs being created. That’s a good problem to have.

He’s experienced, maybe too much so. – One of the things supporters of Joe Biden point to when making their case for why he’d make the best nominee for the Democrats in 2020 is that he’s experienced, and he certainly is. Biden was first elected to the U.S. Senate in 1972 at the age of 29.

During his first term in the Senate, he served with such blasts from the past as J. William Fulbright, Sam Ervin, George McGovern, Frank Church, Russell Long, and 1968 Democrat presidential nominee Hubert Humphrey. Fulbright was first elected to the Senate in 1945, Ervin in 1954.

But, while long years of experience in national government may be a positive for Biden in his run against an assortment of no-accounts in his party’s primaries, is not necessarily an advantage in a general election against Donald Trump, who was elected in 2016 over another “experienced” candidate specifically because he was an outsider.

Indeed, since Biden first came to Washington, the American people have shown a very strong bias against electing “experienced” guys like him to serve in the presidency.

Going back to the 1976 election, here is how many years’ experience in Washington DC our past seven presidents had when they got elected:

Jimmy Carter – 0

Ronald Reagan – 0

George H.W. Bush – roughly 20

Bill Clinton – 0

George W. Bush – 0

Barack Obama – 2

Donald Trump – 0

Combined, those seven presidents had about 22 years’ total experience in the DC Swamp, with Bush 41 having almost all of them. Bush 41, as we all remember, was defeated in 1992 by an outsider, Bill Clinton, who got a big assist from an even more authentic outsider, Ross Perot.

Are you seeing a trend here? I am.

Biden will no doubt be running as the guy who would bring us the third term of America’s Worst Mistake, Barack Hussein Obama, for whom he served as Vice President. Oh, hey, didn’t the Pantsuit Princess, who served as Obama’s Secretary of State, already try that one? How’d that work out for you, Democrats?

But what other reason would the American people have for electing Biden to the presidency? It certainly wouldn’t be based on his senate record, where he was wrong about literally every major issue our country has faced over the last 46 years. It couldn’t be based on all of his achievements as Vice President since, like every Veep, he didn’t accomplish a damn thing while serving in that office.

It definitely wouldn’t be based on his comparative youth and vigor, since Biden will be older on Election Day, 2020 than our oldest previous serving President, Ronald Reagan, was on the day he left office after serving two full terms. When you really get right down to it, the only real reason why Biden appears to want to run is that he regrets not running in 2016, when he reasonably should have, and now thinks it is “his turn” to be the Democrat Party’s nominee.

Nominating anyone because it is their “turn”, lacking any other compelling reason for doing so, almost never works out for either party in modern times. Let’s go back to 1976 again and take a look at those results:

1976 – Gerald Ford (Loss)

1980 – Jimmy Carter (Landslide Loss)

1984 – Walter Mondale (Record Landslide Loss)

1988 – Bush 41 (Won, became a one-term POTUS)

1996 – Bob Dole (Landslide Loss)

2000 – Al Gore (Loss)

2004 – John Kerry (Loss)

2008 – John McCain (Miserable Loss)

2012 – Mitt Romney (Loss)

2016 – Pantsuit Princess (Loss)

Look at those results. In all that time, the only “it’s my turn” candidate who was nominated by either party and actually won the election was George Herbert Walker Bush, and he only won because he was carried into office on the enormous coattails of Ronaldus Magnus. When left to run on his own devices after four years of deviating from the Reagan agenda and raising taxes, he also suffered a miserable defeat.

Joe Biden will most likely not go onto become the Democrat nominee in 2020 – I’m frankly still not convinced he’s even going to make a go of it, with all of these women still coming out of the woodwork to complain about his handsy habits.

But if he does get the nomination, Donald Trump and all of his supporters should celebrate.

That is all.

AOC, Beto and John McCain Dominate the News, and Donald Trump Wins Again

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

There had to be some drug he did not do. Now we know. –Irish Bob O’Rourke swears he’s never used LSD. And a worried nation breathes a sigh of relief. The biggest problem with this denial seems to be that it robs him of any excuse whatsoever for dressing like a goat, complete with mask, while playing in his punk band. Plus, it could have helped to explain some of those hand and arm gyrations. Oh, well.

The Irishman from El Paso also swore that there is “nothing” in his past that has not already been revealed, which every sentient being who ever lived through their teenage and college years knows is a bald-faced lie, since we all have things in our past young lives that we take carefully to our graves. He also told the Washington Post that, during his “I gotta go find myself” journey through five states in early January, he ate dirt with “regenerative powers” in a small town in New Mexico, and found it so darn appetizing that he bought more to take home and feed to his family. Sounds like a CPS matter to me.

Finally, the intrepid over-cusser swears he is going to do his best to quit using the F-word so effin’ much, which would effin’ awesome if he can effin’ do it. I effin’ swear I don’t make this effin’ stuff up.

It’s not me, AOC, it’s you. – Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is worried about her flagging polling numbers, which in one poll shows her having just 37% approval in her own congressional district. But being the self-absorbed, childish nitwit that she is, she is convinced that it just cannot be her fault.

Thus, she took to Twitter yesterday (because of course she did) and placed all of the blame on the single most passe’ and predictable target possible, old, white men. Yes, friends, the favorite bogeyman of the radical left outside of fracking and global warming, er, cooling, er, “climate change” is now also to blame for the ongoing perils of AOC:

Now, as an older white guy, I would just love to think that I am partially responsible for this young, attractive, rooftop-dancing, talking-points parroting, aspiring circus clown’s problems, but that just isn’t the case. AOC’s many wounds are pretty much all of the self-inflicted variety, the inevitable outcome for a raging ignoramus who doesn’t know how or when to keep her mouth – or Twitter feed – shut or what in the world she’s saying anytime she is forced to stray from her carefully-prepared scripts.

But you keep on going, AOC – you’re the best entertainment in America outside of college football, and that only last 5 months a year.

I hate to speak ill of the dead, but hey, it’s John McCain. – President Donald Trump had this, in part, to say yesterday when discussing late Senator John McCain’s betrayal of America in his vindictive, decisive 2017 vote against repealing and replacing Obamacare:

All the talking heads at CNN and MSNBC exploded after hearing that, because of course they did. But as a reminder, Senator McCain made his firm promise to lead the charge in favor of repealing and replacing Obamacare the centerpiece of his 2016 campaign for re-election. Arizona’s voters sent him back to Washington for what would presumably be another 6-year term based on the belief he would keep his word.

But John McCain had a life-long problem with keeping his word to other Americans, and when push came to shove, he once again reneged on the firm promise he had made. That’s the truth about John McCain – it was his real nature as a human being. President Trump is 100% right about him.

That is all.

The Paris Riots are a Rejection of Climate-Imposed Socialism

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

This made my eyes water up a bit. – Here is a poem Sen. Orrin Hatch wrote to George and Barbara Bush in January 2013:

For those who can’t read the handwriting, here is the text:

You are resplendent in years
and worth all the tears
as we worry
and hurry
Through each eventful day
in this great land
made greater still
by God’s firm hand
and your strong will
that searched for the better way
every day

Orrin G. Hatch

Beautiful.

Speaking of Bush 41… – All Americans should commend the late President and his family for not using this week of mourning and remembrance as an occasion for lashing out and settling of grudges, as the McCain family did a few months ago. But then, the Bushes are just a different class of people, aren’t they?

Never one to hold a grudge, Bush 41 insisted that President Trump and First Lady Melania Trump be invited to attend his funeral, for the simple reason that that is the gracious and proper thing to do. You can be sure that the eulogies delivered at the service will not be filled with bitterness and potshots taken at the current President, because that is not how the Bush family has ever done things. Again, just a different class of people.

The same cannot be said for our fake news media, sadly. It is as tiresome as it was predictable that the very same media outlets – and many of the same ageing on-air personalities – who demonized George H. W. Bush while he was Vice President and President have taken the occasion of his passing to pretend to have loved him while using it as an excuse to take shots at Donald Trump.

Even Fox News is participating in this sham. I had to just turn the television off yesterday evening as Bret Baier decided it would be a great idea to spend 10 minutes letting the execrable hacks Juan Williams and Mara Liasson go on and on about how “gracious” they always thought Poppy Bush was. That’s certainly a far cry from the despicable things Williams had to say about him while he was in office serving this country.

The reality is that Bush 41, like every other Republican in modern times, had an extremely contentious relationship with the media, which was almost as fake 30 years ago as it is today. At one point in his 1988 campaign he went so far as to ban Newsweek from traveling on his campaign plane due to that particular outlet’s absurdly biased coverage of him. And who will ever forget Poppy’s on-air shouting match with then-CBS News anchor Dan Rather in January 1988?

These were not people and organizations who loved and respected George Bush then, and they only feign love and respect for him now as a cheap means of attacking the current President.

That’s a truth that we all should keep in mind as this week rolls along and the rank hypocrisy emanating from our TV screens turns increasingly putrid.

Paris Burning Watch:

What? Our fake news media misleading the public on the reasons for all the rioting? How can this be? Oh, wait, nevermind.

NBC attempted to cast the rioters’ rage as class warfare over policies that favor the rich over the poor. ABC told its viewers the riots were caused by a simple “fuel tax”. Neither network dared mention the truth about these riots, which is that they are a backlash against taxes on carbon being imposed thanks to the French government’s commitments made under the Paris Climate Accords.

And guess what? The French are not the only people who are rejecting government efforts to seize their money and property as a fool’s means of “doing something” to fight the nebulous concept of “climate change.”

One of the main reasons why Angela Merkel is stepping down as Chancellor of Germany in the coming months is because the population there has become enraged by the massively higher utility costs imposed on them by Merkel’s Energiewende initiative that attempted to transform the country’s power sector from burning coal to getting electricity from hundreds of thousands of giant windmills.

In Canada, the province of Ontario is suing to halt the imposition of a federal carbon tax that child Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is attempting to impose, a tax that threatens to destroy that country’s economy. Just a few weeks ago, the voters in Washington State resoundingly rejected the Democrat-controlled government’s attempt to impose what would have been the first statewide carbon tax in the United States.

The riots in Paris are just the latest signal that we are coming to a real inflection point in the global climate scam. The Globalist community latched onto what they first called “global warming” and later shifted to “climate change” 30 years ago as their newest rationalization for the imposition of worldwide socialism. It is no accident at all that literally every proposed “solution” to “climate change” for the last three decades involves seizing the money and property of individuals so that the ruling class can “do something” about the “problem,” a problem which constantly evolves and which they can never seem to quite describe in a way the average person can understand.

But despite their increasingly shrill and desperate efforts at brainwashing, the public has never embraced this “climate change” as an issue of major concern. In every poll taken that asks voters to list the issues they are most concerned about, “climate change” always, without exception, ranks at or near the bottom.

And in reality, the globalists don’t even buy into their own rhetoric. As I pointed out yesterday, not one single signatory nation to the Paris Accords has met its emissions reductions obligations as of this point. Not one. Most of those countries – which includes every country on earth except the United States – have in fact seen their emissions rise significantly. They don’t even buy their own BS.

So, as all the elitist globalists flew on their carbon-emitting private jets into Poland for their latest multi-million dollar climate conference boondoggle, they were faced with 30 years of frustration at their efforts to impose socialist “solutions” and a growing backlash coming from those being imposed upon. This is where things become dangerous because history tells us that when leftists become frustrated, their sense of entitlement tends to turn them violent. We have certainly seen that here in America over the last two years, with the Democrat Party basically creating the violent Antifa movement following the 2016 elections.

Make no mistake about it: A few election losses and some riots in Paris will not deter these people. They believe they basically have a “divine right” to rule, and in their minds, any means are justified by the ends.

Stay vigilant.

Senator Graham Transitions From RINO to Trumpist on Immigration

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

So, you’re sayin’ there’s still a chance. –  Hearts went to palpitating at fake media outlets all over the Texas news media yesterday when their hero, Irish Bob “Beto” O’Rourke, said he just might be running for president in 2020. At least, that’s the way Irish Bob’s comments are being breathlessly reported on your Texas-based radios and televisions this morning.

Of course, as is so often the case with our fake news media reporting on Irish Bob, the reporting isn’t exactly right. What the eternally cute and fidgety Democrat boy toy actually said was this:

O’Rourke said that he had just returned from a vacation with his family and was enjoying being home in El Paso. “That’s what we’re focused on now,” he said. “Just being together as a family, making sure I deliver everything I can to the people I represent until Jan. 3. Then Amy and I will think about what we can do next to contribute to the best of our ability to this community,” he said.

Then he looked at his wife in the audience. “Amy, how was that?”

In other words, the beloved Beto did not say he might be running, he just didn’t say an outright, unqualified “no” when asked. But that was enough to set our “Dumb and Dumber” fake news media off on another round of Betomania promotion.

Because of course it was.

Oh, and by the way, he’s running. There’s way too much money in it for him to do anything else.

Ocasio Cortez Watch:

Irish Bob’s ideal running mate when 2024 comes around got into a little dust-up on Twitter with Senator Lindsey Graham on Monday.  It went something like this:

Bazinga!

Speaking of Senator Graham… – The Senator from South Carolina has been on a roll lately.  I missed this on Sunday, but he sent out a couple of tweets that afternoon that deserve to be noted, mainly because Graham has in the past – while he was following John McCain around like a little puppy dog – always been a dove on illegal immigration:

Folks, when we have looming armies of illegal immigrants behaving so badly at our Southern border that even Lindsey Graham is ready to just shut it down, what we have is an invasion, plain and simple.

Never forget that that’s what this is: An invasion. Because words are important, and so is recognizing things for what they are.

It is also very important to remember that the people in these “caravans” have no legitimate claim to asylum in the United States. Asylum is meant for those fleeing wars or other violent oppression from the government in their home country. The best fake argument that Democrats and our fake news media can come up with for these folks is that they are “fleeing gang violence,” a term we see and hear repeated ad nauseum in almost every fake news media report on the matter.

Look, people in Chicago have a real problem with gang violence. So do folks in Los Angeles and New Orleans and most other Democrat-run big cities in the United States. No one in the Democrat Party or our fake news media is saying that their constituents in those cities have some sort of unfettered right to form up “caravans” of 5,000 people and storm into Canada.

These people are “fleeing” poverty, nothing else. Most of them freely admit that whenever one of the few moderately-curious “journalists” embeded with them ask why they want to come to America. Some of them are looking for work, others are simply looking to get on America’s public dole, which Democrats have made so easy to abuse.

Even if this bunch had legitimate claims to asylum, they are in that case obligated under international law to seek it in the first foreign country they enter, which would be Mexico. Mexico’s government has generously offered asylum to every one of these people, most of whom flatly turned it down. Real “asylum seekers” don’t get to do that. Fake ones do, apparently.

In situations like this, liberals love to get all teary-eyed and quote the poem on the Statue of Liberty, as if it is some sort of law (it isn’t).  Here is what that poem says:

“Give me your tired, your poor, Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free, The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.”

Here is what that poem does not say:

“Give me an army of thousands of mostly military-aged males, your gangsters yearning to crash through our border checkpoints, The wretched grifters wishing to plant the flag of their home country on our soil and live off the generosity of our taxpayers.”

We are a nation of immigrants, that much of the liberal dogma on this subject is true.  Legal immigration through an orderly process in which our country gets to decide, through its sovereign rights, who does and does not get to enter our shores, is a good and positive thing.

But this – this invasion – is not a good thing at all. Thank goodness we have a President who sees the situation for what it is, and deals with it properly despite all the false hysteria emanating from the other side.

That is all.
Postscript: I meant to include this terrific tweet from Buck Sexton in the original piece, but forgot.  So, a little late, here it is:

Perfect.

That is really all.

Lindsey Graham Just Changed the Course of History

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

He said, she said, Lindsey said.  Game over. – I’ve said this several times over the last year, ever since John McCain took ill and was forced to pretty much remove himself from the scene in the nation’s capital, but it bears repeating here:  It is absolutely amazing just how great Lindsey Graham has become now that he is free from the pernicious influence of John McCain.

It is not an overstatement to say that Lindsey Graham changed the course of history yesterday.  Not an overstatement at all.  Up to the point of his decimation of the Democrats on the Senate Judiciary Committee and his laying bare of their despicable scheme against Judge Brett Kavanaugh for all the world to see, it is very likely that Judge Kavanaugh did not have a single Democrat vote in his favor for confirmation, and he probably would have lost several Republicans as well.

Yes, Judge Kavanaugh had acquitted himself extremely well.  His passionate, emotional opening statement was perfect, a revelation of a man outraged at the coordinated assault the Democrats and their proxies like the Creepy Porn Lawyer had mounted on his character, his life and his family.  The obvious contempt for those senators that oozed from his pores as he answered their idiotic questions about his high school yearbook was wholly justified and reflected the righteous indignation and anger being felt on his behalf by tens of millions of ordinary Americans out here in Flyover Country at the despicable spectacle the Democrats had organized against him.

But to that point, the day was probably a draw.  Dr. Christine Ford had also done well enough in the morning to probably give cover for every Democrat senator – even those up for re-election in so-called “Red” states – to vote against this nomination, and had likely created enough doubt about Kavanaugh and his character to frighten wobbly-kneed Republicans like Susan Collins, Jeff Flake and Lisa Murkowski away.  Ms. Ford was obviously lying about many things, but her job in all of this was only to create confusion and doubt, and she had successfully done that.

Everything changed when Senator Graham, upon returning from a 15-minute break in the proceedings, insisted on taking the questioning away from Maricopa County Attorney Rachel Mitchell and exercise his own senatorial privilege.  Graham only asked a couple of questions of Judge Kavanaugh during his 5 minutes, spending the remainder of his time unleashing holy hell on his depraved Democrat “colleagues” and changing the tone of the entire afternoon.

Had a similar outburst come from any of the other GOP senators on the Committee, it would not have had much effect.  But coming as it did from Lindsey Graham, who sadly had largely wasted the past dozen years following the execrable RINO McCain around like a little puppy dog on a leash, pretending that the Democrats were just well-intentioned “colleagues” and that such a thing as “collegiality” still existed in the U.S. Senate, and helping McCain and the Ds push open-borders and other globalist policies, it was a visible shock to the Democrat system and to their propaganda wing in the fake news media.

From that point forward, the Democrat senators were obviously cowed and never laid a glove on Judge Kavanaugh.  Their focus on asking the Judge about the meaning of passages in his high school yearbook and endless calls for a man who has already been through no fewer than 6 FBI background checks to call for yet another one made them look like the silly, disengenuous jackasses they truly are.

Left at long last to his own devices, freed from the destructive influence of McCain, Lindsey Graham grew into his full potential as a leader, as a senator and as a man on Thursday.  He abandoned the ranks of the RINO placeholders in the U.S. Senate and, just in the nick of time, achieved greatness.

As a result, Judge Kavanaugh will receive a “do confirm” recommendation out of the Judiciary Committee today, probably along party line votes.  After the senate spends the following few days going through all its goofy Kabuki theater floor speeches and cloture nonsense, Kavanaugh will be confirmed on Tuesday to become the next associate justice to the U.S. Supreme Court.  At the end of the day, he will probably receive right at the same number of total votes as did Neil Gorsuch, with several squeamish Red state Ds joining all 51 Rs to confirm.

But much more than that was at stake here.  As I wrote last week and again earlier this week, our constitutional guarantees of the right to face our accusers and the presumption of innocence for the accused were under assault and on the line in this nomination, thanks to the the Democrat conspiracy to destroy this man’s life on the front pages of our nation’s fake newspapers.

I have been extremely critical of Senator Graham over the years, mainly due to his slavish devotion to John McCain, and I believe he deserved every bit of the criticism he received over those years.  But today, he is my hero because, when the moment came when he and only he could summon the personal gumption to stand up and change the course of history for our country, he rose to the occasion and grew into his potential as a true statesman.

God bless him for doing that, God bless Judge Kavanaugh and his family and God bless America.

That is all.

The Kavanaugh Hearings: America’s Long National Nightmare Continues

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Okay, so, time to switch to Under Armor or New Balance. – The geniuses at Nike decided that Monday, which was Labor Day, would be a great time to unveil its new ad campaign star, unemployed ex-San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick.  Alienating half of your potential customer base at the outset seems like an odd marketing strategy, but hey, I don’t sell athletics shoes for a living, and I’m not Nike’s target consumer anyway.  So, no doubt things will work out fine.  Or not.  Either way, I won’t be buying Nikes anymore, and neither will millions of other Americans who think it’s inappropriate to take a knee during the National Anthem.

Man, no one could’ve seen this one coming.  Oh, wait… – Tourism is down in Lexington, Virginia.  Not just down – wayyyyy down.  Why is this a thing in Today’s Campaign Update, you ask?  Why, because Lexington, VA is the home of the Red Hen Restaurant.  You remember that place, right?  Yes, this is the establishment owned and run by the lunatic leftwing social justice warrior who, along with her staff, refused to serve White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders and her family when they attempted to dine there a few months ago.

The incident didn’t end there.  Not content to merely run the Sanders brood out of her own mediocre establishment, the Red Hen’s proprietor led a gaggle of her rancid staff across the street to harrass them as they attempted to eat at another Lexington restaurant.  Such lovely people, these leftists.

Anyway, as is always the case in this world – and will be the case with Nike, by the way – actions have consequences, and the consequence for the Red Hen and the other unlucky businesses that share streetfront property with it in Lexington, is that business is bad.  Not just “bad,” but baaaaaaaaaaaadddd.  The Director of Marketing for the local tourism board, Patty Williams, told reporters over the weekend that the area is still feeling effects from the ridiculous incident.  “For a town our size, it was a significant impact,” she said.  Go figure.

But hey, the board has a plan, and that plan is to spend millio…er, thousands of dollars (because that’s all they have available to them) on a campaign to “spread positive messages of the area,” messages that will presumably include an assurance that visitors to the city are not required to patronize the Red Hen and its ill-tempered, childish staff of SJW snowflakes.  No doubt this marketing plan will work every bit as well as Nike’s new marketing plan will work.  Hey, maybe Lexington can get Collin Kaepernick to do some spots for its campaign as well.  After all, the dude has nothing else on his plate.

Our long national nightmare continues… – Ok, we got one day off after the 8 Days of John McCain’s Traveling Funeral Show ended, and that’s it.  Now, get ready for four straight days of wall-to-wall fake news media coverage of fake hearings related to the nomination of Bret Kavanaugh to become the next associate justice of the U.S. Supreme Court.

Truth:  Bret Kavanaugh is an extremely well-qualified candidate to sit on the nation’s highest court, a widely-respected jurist with a long history of decisions at the federal district and appellate court-levels that place him square in the mainstream of American jurisprudence.  In a real world in which things like truth and respect for America’s institutions reigned, these hearing before the Senate Judiciary Committee would last about half a day, the end result of which would be a near-unanimous vote by the committee to recommend his confirmation to the full senate.

But this is not the real world; this is today’s Washington, DC.

Reality:  Democrats on the Judiciary Committee will turn these hearings into a three-ring circus, and their co-conspirators in the fake news media will join them in attempting to brainwash you all into believing that Kavanaugh is Darth Vader incarnate, an evil monster who is coming after every woman’s reproductive rights and who wants everyone to be killed on the streets by guns.  Rank demagogues with presidential aspirations on the Committee, like California Senator Kamala Harris and New Jersey Senator Cory Booker, will use their time questioning the nominee to burnish their street cred with the party’s far, far, far left voter base.

Rank demagogues who are too ancient to hold presidential aspirations on the Committee, like California’s Dianne Feinstein and Vermont’s Patrick Leahy, will barely be able to read and recite questions written for them by their unpaid interns and have no earthly idea what Kavanaugh is talking about when he answers them.  Leahy, who has was first elected to the senate by the brain-dead voters of Vermont in 1974, has been a Democrat mainstay in every controversial supreme court nomination since Robert Bork in 1987 and has yet to ask a cogent question of any nominee of a Republican president.  That’s quite a record.

The rest of the Democrats on the Committee will also ask questions, but no one will care.

The thing to know about this nomination is that it has already been won, barring some major brain fart by the nominee while at the witness table this week.  He has already received the tacit endorsement from all the GOP squishes like Susan Collins, as well as from the always-difficult Rand Paul, so Kavanaugh will in all likelihood get 50 votes from Republicans alone, which is all he needs to be confirmed.  Add to that 3 or 4 Democrat senators like Heidi Heitkamp and Joe Manchin who are in tough re-election campaigns in Republican-majority states, and you end up with essentially the same number of votes to confirm received by President Trump’s first nominee, Neil Gorsuch.

So the spectacle we’re about to be pummeled with throughout this entire week is basically just four days of hyped-up Kabuki theatre.  The outcome has been pre-determined, but the actors still demand they get their full time on stage.

Are you ready for your screen test, Ms. Harris?

Just another day in Kabuki dance America.

That is all.

The McCain Funeral: A Fitting Requiem for the Deep State

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Our long national nightmare is finally over. – Senator John McCain, who died on Saturday, August 25, was finally laid to rest on Sunday, September 2, after eight interminable days of honoring, memorializing and rank demagoguery, all of which the amazingly egotistical Senator planned for himself.  And so, the nation can heave a huge, collective sigh of relief.

I’ll get criticized for that opening paragraph, but I want those of you coming to bash me to remember that in 1963, our country suffered the assassination of a President.  That killing took place on Friday, November 22.  Following a hasty and ill-performed autopsy, the slain President’s body lay in state in the East Room of the White House throughout the day on November 23.  The body was carried by horse-drawn caisson up Pennsylvania Avenue early on the morning of November 24, where it lay in state throughout that day.

And on Monday, November 25, the body of John Fitzgerald Kennedy, the 35th President of the United States of America, was buried.  From beginning to end, the process took just three days, but then, Mr. Kennedy did not have the opportunity to do his own planning, given that he was taken down by the bullets of at least one assassin.

What we just went through as a nation over the past 8 days was unwarranted and unseemly, and everyone involved in making it happen should be embarrassed.  RIP, Senator McCain, at long last.

If you must continue mourning, here’s a new object of your desires. – The 200 year-old national museum of Brazil in Rio de Janeiro suffered a massive fire overnight, destroying most if not all of the 20 million precious historic items in its collection.  Items thought to be destroyed include the oldest human fossil found in Brazil, a fresco that survived the destruction of Pompeii, and a collection of Egyptian artifacts.  A real tragedy of epic proportions for history and the human race.

A fitting requiem for the Deep State. – Back to the McCain funeral one last time before I let the subject go forever.

Despite the unseemly nature of the “service” on Saturday, with two different former presidents and the daughter of the deceased using their time to bash the sitting President rather than memorialized the dead Senator, it occurs to me that it served as the perfect requiem for the Deep State establishment that is currently being dismantled and de-powered by President Trump.

There you had assembled in one place the three previous presidents who, along with elderly ex-President George H.W. Bush, had spent the 28 years prior to Trump’s inauguration “globalizing” America, marginalizing America’s blue-collar workers and de-emphasizing American greatness, all honoring a Senator who had played a leading role in carrying their water for more than 30 years.  You also had all the glitterati of the fake news media which has spent those same years brainwashing the American public to just lie back and take the policy-based pillaging of the U.S. economy and mortgaging of our childrens’ and grandchildrens’ future once again brainwashing you to disregard the realities of John McCain’s life and career.

At the same time, the President who is working to reverse the corrupt and destructive anti-American legacy of the previous 28 years was out playing golf because he had been dis-invited from the service by McCain and the McCain family.  Again, a perfect gesture of contempt on behalf of the Deep State.  The symbolism of the day was perfect:  The three ex-presidents looking old, tired and lacking in energy, their legislative bell cow lying in a coffin, the fake news media collectively spinning yet another tired narrative, with the one guy standing athwart them all out getting his exercise, preparing for another week of dismantling the Deep State they all worked so hard to institutionalize.

Meanwhile, the Democrat Party is radicalizing to the far, far left, and the Republican Party is systematically getting rid of its establishment wing through primary elections and retirements. The Deep State GOP/Democrat “uniparty” that McCain, Bush, Obama and Clinton worked so hard to construct over the last three decades is already greatly diminished, and stands in danger of going away entirely should Trump succeed in getting re-elected in 2020.

With our economy booming, Black and Hispanic unemployment at all-time record low levels, and tens of thousands of blue-collar and union jobs returning to America, the party coalitions of the past are being re-drawn in ways that will render the two Parties more readily distinguishable from one another.  While this process will be difficult and fraught with peril, it will over the next few years produce a result that is far better for the country.

Most people thought this weekend was about a funeral for a senator, but it was about so much more than that if you were paying attention.  The people at that service were mourning much more than the loss of just one man.

Just another day in the Deep State is dying America.

That is all.

The Fake News Just Keeps Getting Faker, Part II

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Next comes the Feats of Strength competition. – The Season of Festivus apparently kicked off on Saturday (Google it if you never watched “Seinfeld”), as the annual Airing of Grievances took place at the funeral for John McCain.  Naturally, given that this was a gathering of pretty much every major figure in the DC Swamp today, all the grievances were targeted at the one man who wasn’t in attendance, President Donald Trump, who was playing golf as the Grievances were being aired.

Thus far we’ve had no word on when the competing Festivus For The Restofus will take place, or where.

Speaking of funeral-related shenanigans, Bishop Charles Ellis III, who officiated over the 9-hour service for the late, great Aretha Franklin, sort of apologized late Saturday for creating a controversy by apparently groping the young pop singer Ariana Grande up at the dias, right in front of the whole world.  The groping was of course captured on video from about a dozen different angles, was obviously intentional, went on for quite awhile and caused Ms. Grande visible distress and discomfort.

The Bishop says it was all unintentional, because of course he does:

“It would never be my intention to touch any woman’s breast. … I don’t know, I guess I put my arm around her,” Ellis said in comments to US media confirmed to AFP on Saturday.

“Maybe I crossed the border, maybe I was too friendly or familiar, but again, I apologize.”

Yeah, sure, uh-huh.

The Bishop made things even worse for himself by telling an incredibly stupid joke as he introduced Ms. Grande, saying  “When I saw Ariana Grande on the program, I thought that was a new something at Taco Bell.”  The 25 year-old singer is of Italian descent.

The fake news just keeps on getting faker at the desperate New York Times. – My goodness, it has finally come to this.  The fake journalists at the New York Times who have coordinated with all the bad actors in the FBI and DOJ in their efforts to first prevent Donald Trump to win the presidency and then to keep building a case for his impeachment, have devised yet another new narrative for the whole fiasco.  It is an obvious, transparent effort to get their deep state cohorts off the hook as the walls of eventual justice continue to close in around them.

In this latest narrative, everything the FBI and DOJ cabal did related to the Trump Campaign throughout 2016 turns out now to have been an effort to “turn” Russian oligarch Oleg Deripaska, an effort the fakest fake newspaper in America claims was initially directed at obtaining “information on Russian organized crime and, later, on possible Russian aid to President Trump’s 2016 campaign.”  In this newest narrative – about the 5th or 6th new narrative the fake media establishment has spun since the truth began coming to light about 18 months ago – Deripaska, a well-known part of the Russian criminal establishment – was able to easily obtain visas necessary to conduct his business in the U.S. from the Obama DOJ because, why, they wanted to turn him.  And they coordinated efforts with Deripaska throughout the fall of 2016 and treated the fake Trump Dossier which was largely compiled with Deripaska’s unsupported accusations as unbridled fact before the FISA court because, golly, they wanted to turn him.

This newest in a long line of media-invented narratives is necessary because all the previous false narratives have crashed up on the shoals of harsh reality.  This one will as well, because it is even more absurd than the incredibly specious tale of an off-hand remark by the pathetic campaign hanger-on George Papadopoulous to some guy in Australia having generated a formal FBI counter-intelligence investigation that lasted for months.

C’mon, man.  Be serious.

But look, these fake journalists can’t be serious, because many of them are actually in personal jeopardy in all of this.  They weren’t just “reporting” on all the Cabal’s dirty dealings, they were active participants in them.  The reality is if the skunks and snakes within the government ever begin to be brought to justice, that process will inevitably extend to the skunks and snakes at the New York Times and many other fake news media outlets.

So they have to keep spinning, tale after tale, diversion after diversion, narrative after narrative, all in a desperate effort to keep the whole dirty episode from completely unraveling.  Their problem, however, is that the facts of the dirty dealings are already mostly on the public record and just waiting for someone, anyone in a position of authority at DOJ to perform a real investigation into them.

It is becoming increasingly apparent that the current Attorney General, Jeff Sessions, has no intention of ever allowing anyone to engage in such an investigation on his watch, but the President has made it clear that, absent some real action, Sessions’ watch is likely to end shortly after Election Day, barely two months from now.  That isn’t much time for the fake news media to get some – any – viable narrative in place.

But this narrative will fail just like all of its predecessors have failed for one overriding reason:  It is fake news, and facts are stubborn things.

Just another day in the fake news just keeps getting faker America.

That is all.

Guest Piece: The Real John McCain vs. the Current Media Legend

The Evening Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

[Note:  I’ve been criticized quite a bit this week for being too nice in the things I’ve written about John McCain following his death.  That’s fine – I never served in the military and thus am quite reluctant to be overly critical of anyone who did.  Still, the media’s absurd hero-worship of McCain as a tool for beating President Trump about the head has grated on me, as it has many readers.  Earlier today, I received the text below in an email from a friend who has himself served our country in stellar fashion in the U.S. Navy for many years as a Naval Aviator and combat pilot.  I’ll let this man’s words speak for themselves.]

The more you know about the real-life of John McCain, the less likely you are to want to honor him at his funeral.  It seems that his dying wishes of excluding some who knew him best might simply be out of fear that they would speak the truth about him, instead of the more popular mythology.

John S. McCain was born with two silver spoons in his mouth.  His grandfather was a 4-Star Admiral as well as his Father.  He tapped into his family legacy for an appointment to the US Naval Academy where he was a terrible student fraught with poor grades and demerits.  He graduated at the bottom of his class at Annapolis (894 of 899) and again only his family connections can explain that low of a graduate obtaining a coveted slot in flight school.  His flying career validated the Navy’s standard pilot selection criteria, as this family “golden boy” crashed two aircraft and destroyed a third out of negligence and “flat-hatting”. (He flew one into the water, he ran out of gas on the way home from the Army/Navy game, and he clipped power lines in a 3rd).  Your standard pilot would never would have been allowed to keep flying with even one of his incidents of incompetence, but the Admiral’s son got promoted.

Again working his family connections, he worked a transfer from an A-1 unit to an A-4 squadron where he again found himself over his head.  Green in the aircraft, inexperienced in the tactics, and disliked by his squadron-mates, he forced his way to the head of the line to lead the mission of his famous shoot-down.

—-Let’s be clear.  It took giant brass balls to fly these missions.  Everyone who has ever strapped on a military aircraft and taken off from a ship to fly into combat deserves at least a modicum of respect.  Still, the truth about what happened is important.—–

With that said, there is no doubt that John McCain was shot down due largely to his own incompetence as a pilot.  In his own book, he admitted that he didn’t follow proper procedures for a missile warning, and his squadron-mates refute his account of the shoot down.  He claims that he disregarded the missile warning to get his bombs off.  Witnesses and the official report show that he failed to pull out at the proper altitude and was shot down by AAA.  Both accounts add up to pilot error.

While in captivity, John McCain recorded propaganda to be used against the United States, he gave information that endangered (and likely cost) the lives of other Americans, and used his father’s position for preferential treatment while in captivity.  Some of those recordings are available in the National Archives, others remain classified.  Many are used to teach current officers what examples of the US Code of Conduct for POWs would be.  McCain’s conduct in captivity was much closer to that of Bowe Bergdahl than it was Louis Zamperini.

When McCain got home, he used the fame brought about by his father’s position to live a “rock star” life.  Instead of happily reuniting with his wife and three children, he had multiple affairs, abandoned his family and married his wealthy mistress less than a month after his divorce.  His conduct is even more disgusting because it was largely due to the fact that his wife had been in a car accident.  He didn’t just leave a woman who he had grown apart from due to the stress of war.  He abandoned the badly injured mother of his children because a wealthy pretty alternative was available.

McCain then he used his celebrity and dubious “hero” status to get into a political office where he sold his support to the highest bidder for the rest of his life.  The media gave him the nickname of “Maverick”, since he would often go against his party.  The name “Turn Coat” would be much more fitting.  McCain voted against improving the VA, while somehow amassing a $13+ million-dollar fortune as a retired officer on a disability pension plus a senator’s salary.  Pretty neat trick for a “public servant” to be insanely rich, especially when his prenuptial agreement with his wealthy 2nd wife mandated total separation of finances.

It makes me want to vomit that there is discussion about appointing one of McCain’s daughters to his Senate Seat.  Family connections alone got a terrible student (894 out of 899 at the Naval Academy) a pilot slot that he didn’t earn.  Family connections alone propped up John S. McCain when he destroyed three aircraft out of negligence.  Family connections alone kept John S. McCain from being kicked out of the Navy for his personal conduct after he returned from Vietnam (adultery is punishable by the UCMJ, and his conduct would have been career killer in today’s Navy).  The McCain family produced two four star admirals who were outstanding Naval Officers. For goodness sake though, the McCain family has cashed in plenty on those men’s accomplishments.  John McCain’s failures at every position he has ever held are a case study in the dangers of nepotism.  It is time for this family’s influence to end.

John McCain was a fraud when he was alive, and the mythology after his death is even sillier.  The liberal media loves him because his last act in congress was to prevent a milestone accomplishment for President Trump when McCain betrayed Republicans and voted “thumbs down” to the repeal of Obamacare.  Somehow, again, voting against something that you campaigned for made John a “Maverick” and not a “Traitor”.

There are good and honest men with much more modest “accomplishments” due to the simple facts that they didn’t have a powerful father, and they refused to stray from their principles.  You can find them at your local fire station, VFW, Legion Post, School Board, and coaching youth sports.  You find them married to wives they took vows to, and raising children they love and cherish.  You can find them earning honest wages in business or in service.  All of these men have values and character that was NEVER displayed by John McCain.

The more anyone knows about John McCain, the less there is to like.

John McCain: Bitter ’til the Bitter End, and Even Beyond

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

A sad and bitter man ’til the sad and bitter end.  And beyond, apparently. – John McCain always wore his bitterness on his sleeve, generating and holding grudges like no one else in the nation’s capital.  Given his experiences during the Vietnam conflict, it was easy to see why that was the case, and I had planned to make no mention of this reality of McCain’s personality in an effort to avoid speaking ill of the dead.

But then, on a long drive Wednesday afternoon, a radio commentator reported the news that McCain and his family have chosen to ban his extremely loyal 2008 running mate, Sarah Palin, from attending the dead Senator’s funeral.  Thus does McCain reach out from whatever lies on the other side of this life in a pitiful and petty effort to settle one final grudge.

The wonder is why there was any grudge to begin with.  Sarah Palin was nothing but the loyal soldier to McCain, both throughout their failed campaign together and in the decade that has passed since.  She never had anything but glowing praise for the man, and issued this statement last Saturday upon learning of his passing:

Gracious, glowing, praising the man into whose moribund campaign she injected a little life, though not enough to get him across the finish line in the face of a horrifically negative slander campaign mounted against them both by the Democrats and the fake national news media.  McCain was initially gracious towards Palin after the defeat, but over the years became convinced his loss was somehow her fault.  Earlier this year he told a fawning fake reporter that choosing Palin as his running mate was a mistake, speculating that Joe Lieberman, a Democrat, would have made a better choice.  Yeah, sure – all those Republican delegates at the convention would have been just thrilled with the prospect of having to vote against all of their core beliefs so their nominee could have his coveted “collegiality” on the ticket.

Thus, McCain reaches out one final time to settle what was in his warped mind an old score.  It is easy to understand his feelings about President Trump; this, on the other hand, is purely mean-spirited and petty.

So let’s all pray that John McCain can Rest In Peace in the next life since he so obviously never could in this one.

Democrat/Media Playbook, Page 1: Play the race card. – GOP Florida gubernatorial candidate Ron DeSantis hadn’t even gotten his general election campaign off the ground before the fake news media and rancid Democrats started throwing their playbook at him.  After he used the common phrase “monkey this up” during an interview Wednesday morning on Fox News, the Democrat/Media axis of propaganda pounced, claiming the term is “racist” since the Democrat nominee, Andrew Gillum, happens to be an African American.

Of course, the Democrats and media are lying here, but hey, that’s what they do.  DeSantis, referring to the undisputed fact that Gillum is an admitted “Democrat Socialist”, said the following:

“We’ve got to work hard to make sure that we continue Florida going in a good direction. The last thing we need to do is to monkey this up by trying to embrace a socialist agenda with huge tax increases and bankrupting the state.”  A pretty reasonable statement that refers to Gillum’s admitted political beliefs, and is obviously not directed in any way at his skin color.

But skin color is constantly at the top of every leftist Democrat’s mind, and so DeSantis’s use of the word “monkey” had become a media-generated fake controversy before he was able to get back into his car following the interview.  I don’t know about anyone else, but if I were a Black man I think I’d be highly offended that every Democrat and fake journalist in America equates me with a monkey.  Because that is what this really is all about.

CNN:  The King of Fake News and damn proud of it. – Management at CNN, the fakest fakety-fake #fakenews outlet on the face of the earth, continued to cling to its latest completely fake story for a third day after it was revealed to be fake.  The obvious hope at CNN is that they can just ride out the storm until the rest of the fake news media forgets about the story – and in reality, most of the rest of the fake news media never paid any attention to it in the first place.

What CNN is going through right now is the direct result of relying on anything Lanny Davis has to say as being true.  Lanny Davis has made a fabulous living for the last 25 years being a professional liar on television.  He has lied for a living on behalf of a seemingly endless array of skunks and snakes, starting with Bill and Hillary Clinton and now doing it for ex-Trump lawyer Michael Cohen.

CNN stupidly aired a “breaking news” story, authored in part by shameless hack Carl Bernstein, claiming that “multiple sources” had told them that President Trump knew in advance about the infamous “Trump Tower meeting” his son and a couple of campaign officials conducted with some Russians in October 2016.  Davis was one of those “multiple sources,” and it is very likely that the other “source” is Cohen himself.

Early this week, Davis admitted on live television that he had lied to Bernstein, and that neither he nor Cohen have any actual knowledge about the story’s allegation against the President.  Any decent, real “news” outlet, when caught so blatantly with its pants down around its figurative ankles, would simply retract the story and ban the source that burned it from its airwaves.  But this is CNN, where the professional liar Davis has been a “source” for all manner of fake stories for a quarter of a century.  When you’re into news fakery as deeply as CNN is, you don’t retract and apologize for the fake story, you just keep lying and standing by your fake source and fake reporters.

By the way, CNN’s ratings for the first two weeks of August were down another 12% from July, as viewers abandon the fake news network in droves for Fox or MSNBC, or perhaps even for a little peace in their lives.  CNN’s prime time lineup is now regularly beaten in the ratings by re-runs of “American Pickers” and “Counting Cars” on the History Channel.  If this trend continues, pretty soon the only viewers CNN will have left are the captive audiences of beaten down travelers in our nation’s airports.

Just another day in fake news media America.

Hillary Clinton’s Political Career Ends not With a Bang, but a Whimper

The Evening Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

You probably missed it over the weekend, what with all the air in the room and fake news media coverage having been consumed by the death of Senator John McCain, but the Pantsuit Princess’s career came to a sudden, if unheralded end on Saturday.

Wait, what?  How did that happen, you ask?

In the end, the Fainting Felon was done in by an entity she literally owned throughout 2016:  The Democrat National Committee.  Yes, friends, that would be the very same DNC which conspired with the Clinton campaign throughout 2015 and 2016 to rig its nominating process in favor of the Grafting Grifter, denying her challengers – mainly, the Commie Bernie Sanders – a fair shake in the war for the party’s endorsement.  The same DNC whose emails were released to the news media, causing massive embarrassment on the eve of the opening of the Democrat National Convention in August 2016, where the Deceptive Doyen ended up being coronated as a result of all the rigging.  The same DNC that, in concert with the Clinton Campaign, funded the fake Trump Dossier.

Yes, THAT DNC.  One and the same.

At the conclusion of its summer meeting held last week in Chicago, the members of the DNC voted to severely restrict the role played in the nominating process by the party’s so-called “Super Delegates,” that collection of congress members, state officials and other members of the Party’s chosen upper-crust who ensured the Coughing Crook would be the Party’s 2016 nominee regardless of how the voters felt about it all.  The committee approved a proposal that will deny these Super Delegates the ability to vote in the first ballot at the party’s 2020 nominating convention.

Tom Perez, the radical Chairman of the DNC, said after the vote that  “These reforms will help grow our party, unite Democrats, and restore voters’ trust by making our 2020 nominating process the most inclusive and transparent in our history.”

The Pantsuit Princess hates transparency.  There has never been a moment in her entire adult life during which transparency has been her friend.

When one considers that the nominating votes at the party conventions almost never proceed past a first ballot, the implications of this move are enormous, because it virtually ensures that the party’s nomination in 2020 will be decided by its base voters.  The Pantsuit Princess was barely able to survive a completely rigged process against a single decently-funded opponent.  There is pretty much no way she will be able to survive a nominating process two years from now in which she must actually compete for votes on a level playing field against what will be a far stronger array of opponents.

This reality for the Grasping Grifter becomes even more stark when one recognizes the rapidly radicalizing nature of the Democrat voter base.  Such #resistance and social justice warrior types are going to completely dominate the turnout for the Democrat Party’s primaries in 2020, and they have moved far to the left of the space staked out by the Fainting Felon in 2016.  They have moved so far left so quickly that even The Commie finds himself frequently under fire from his own left flank these days.

There is little doubt that the Coughing Crook has plans to mount one last-gasp attempt to seize the nation’s highest office two years hence.  That’s what her endless, tiresome public appearances are all about, it’s what her pathetic book was all about, it’s what her incessant whining and blame-shifting are all about.  She has targeted the presidency since she and Bill were in college, and she lives in a state of constant and overwhelming rage that it has been denied her for so many years by these stupid, inferior voters.

But the DNC basically told her on Saturday that her time is done:  By de-rigging its nominating system, the members of the committee basically shut her and her influence-peddling-and-buying racket out of the process.  The irony is that the fake news media establishment that has propped her up so faithfully for so many years pretty much missed the story.

In the end, it is supremely appropriate that what has been perhaps the single most unearned and ill-deserved political career in our nation’s history ends not with a bang, but a whimper.

That is all.

Sunday in Politics: An Endless Parade of Nitwittery

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

An endless parade of nitwittery. – Fox News Sunday set a new low for its “panel of experts” yesterday, presenting viewers with a four-person panel that contained both Juan Williams and ex-Obama State Department spokesperson Marie Harf.  Anyone who watched the panel through its two full segments was assured of losing at least 15 IQ points.  But no worries – the IQ loss can be regained simply by reading anything written by Victor Davis Hanson.  The succinct little piece linked here would make a great start.

CNN remains the fake news media king of Nitwittery. – After it was revealed that the Islamic terrorists who were training a small army of kidnapped children out in the wilds of New Mexico were planning on mounting an assault on an Atlanta hospital, all the fake journalists at all the fake news outlets went into a frenzied effort to find some way to spin the story sympathetically towards the…wait for it…TERRORISTS.  Because, of course they did.

The fake news hacks at CNN were, as generally seems to be the case, the clear winners in this battle to come up with the worst take imaginable:

Yes, friends, the five mostly unrelated Islamic terrorists who were training the kidnapped children have now morphed into a “family” struggling with life without access to the 24-hour fakery of cable news.  Can there be any real doubt that CNN’s fellow fake newsers will award an Emmy to whichever fake journalist came up with this highly-creative line of BS?  No, no doubt at all.

Fake news media Nitwittery extends to Twitwittery. – Not to be outdone by her main competition at CNN, notorious New York Times Hillary Clinton lapdog Maggie Haberman issued this hilariously disingenuous tweet in response to one President Trump had sent out earlier in the day.

Mind you, Haberman is fake-mourning the very same John McCain who her current employer and most of the rest of the fake national news media slandered mercilessly throughout the 2008 presidential campaign, characterizing him at various times as a rapist, a spouse abuser, a misogynist, a racist and a madman.  But now that his dead body can be used to take absurdly cheap shots at a President Haberman hates, she’s all about the “mourning” of the very same man.

These people are disgusting ghouls.

The fake media Nitwittery even went international. – But wait, there’s more!  The London Daily Mail has now dictated the new fake media rule that because a politician who hated President Trump’s very existence has died, President Trump must stop playing golf!  I swear I don’t make this stuff up:

Honestly, could the nitwittery and dishonesty get more absurd than this?

Oh, yes.  Yes it can.

The fake Senator Flake tops them all. – McCain’s fellow Arizona RINO Senator, Jeff Flake, told an interviewer that the best way to honor McCain is as follows:  “By seeing the good in our opponents, by being quick to forgive, by realizing that there’s something more important than ourselves, to put service, you know, over and above our self-interest.”

This would be the exact same Senator Jeff Flake who just got back from a three-week vacation in Africa, which he took in order to prevent the timely confirmation of a raft of President Trump’s judicial nominees.  With McCain lingering on his death bed, Flake was able to deny the Senate Republicans the crucial 50th vote necessary to move these nominees and several pieces of legislation past the stonewalling Democrats.  But that did not prevent him from, upon his belated return to the U.S., lecturing the rest of us to put “service, you know, over and above our self-interest.”  Creepy, disgusting hypocrite.

No wonder the guy has a 15% approval rating among Arizona voters.

Just another day in the Nitwittery is not limited to our fake news media America.

That is all.

John McCain’s Legacy: It’s Complicated

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Senator John McCain died on Saturday.  Whatever one thinks of his political career, his early service to the nation and the years of torture he endured and triumphed over as a result of it deserve to be remembered and honored.

May he Rest in Peace.

A complicated man with a complicated legacy. – We now, of course, will be treated to a week of our fake news media using the death of Mr. McCain as a tool with which to bash President Trump – whose relationship with McCain was extremely rocky – and support the Democrat narrative.  Because that’s what our fake news media does.

It started even before McCain passed, with the fake journalists at the Washington Post running a story bashing the President for not making a statement on McCain’s halting all medical treatment, even though McCain had repeatedly made it publicly clear he did not want any such statement from Mr. Trump, or for Trump to attend his funeral.  McCain’s wife and daughter had also repeated the senator’s feelings on the subject – thus, Trump was simply acceding to the family’s wishes.

The President did issue a statement expressing sympathy for the family via his Twitter feed:

Naturally, he was bashed by much of the fake news media even for that statement, with most fake journalists who hate every Republican – including McCain – pretending to take offense that it does not contain praise for the late Senator.

The reality is that the President can’t win in this situation, regardless of what he says or does.  Were he to issue a statement lavishing praise on McCain, the fake news media and Democrats would bash him for being hypocritical, given his frequent verbal battles with the Senator.  Were he to express his true feelings about the man, he’d be appropriately bashed for that, given the timing.  Were he to have remained silent, well, he was already being bashed for that within seconds of McCain’s passing.

Again, most of this situation is of the President’s own making.  His gratuitous taunts at McCain and his military service during the 2016 campaign were childish, inadvisable, reflected poorly on his own character, and set McCain up as the sympathetic figure in their relationship.  Mr. Trump simply has no graceful way to recover from all of that.

It’s fair to note that the same fake news media outlets whose fake journalists are praising John McCain today are the very same fake news media outlets and fake journalists who bashed McCain and ridiculed him and his running mate Sarah Palin mercilessly throughout the 2008 presidential contest, after the Republican Party had made him its nominee for the office.  As with everything else it does, the fake news media’s relationship with McCain was entirely situational.

Much of that was due to “the Maverick’s” own behavior.  After his bitter defeat in the 2000 nominating contest at the hands of George W. Bush, McCain spent the next 8 years seeking out opportunities to go on MSNBC or CNN to bash the President of his own political party.  His appearances with Chris Matthews on MSNBC’s “Hardball” program became so frequent and confrontational towards Bush that Rush Limbaugh took to referring to McCain as the “Senator from the News Media,” which, of course loved the fact that a prominent Republican senator was helping them do their own dirty work towards a Republican president.

Thus, McCain had cultivated a fabulous relationship with the fake journalists, a relationship that lasted until about 30 seconds after he had secured the GOP’s nomination for the presidency.  Then, he became the enemy, someone to be targeted and destroyed so that the nation could elect the media’s chosen candidate, Barack Obama.  Sadly, McCain, perhaps shocked at the betrayal by so many he had undoubtedly thought would treat him fairly, ran a completely feckless and moribund campaign that ended up sentencing the nation to 8 years of socialist “progress.”

But the Senator from the News Media made a comeback during the Obama years.  His appearances with Matthews and on the Sunday morning talk shows were less frequent, but most often focused on issues on which he was in “Maverick” mode, opposing his own party and supporting Obama’s agenda. Though he did not vote for the Obamacare bill in 2010, he did achieve one final moment of fake news media glory – poking President Trump in the nose in the process – in 2017  by casting the deciding vote that has allowed the failed healthcare law to persist to this day.  Matthews no doubt felt a tingle run up his leg as McCain, with a sneer on his face, raised his thumb down to cast a “no” vote on the repeal bill.

When asked a few years back by a reporter about how he would like to be remembered, McCain said simply “that I served my country.”

John McCain was a very complicated man who had an extremely complicated relationship with the Republican Party, the conservative movement, several presidents and the news media, much of which created negative outcomes during his political career.  Not surprisingly, he leaves behind a very complicated legacy.

But he did serve his country and suffered greatly for that service, and for that service he deserves to be honored.

That is all.

The Mueller Investigation is “Seinfeld”: A Popular Show About Nothing

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Coincidence?  Probably not. – ICE agents found, arrested and deported the last known Nazi WWII-era prison guard living in America.  The Democrat Party, its paramilitary arm, Antifa, and it’s propaganda arm in the national fake news media all want to abolish ICE.  Let that sink in.  They also all want to confiscate your guns and abolish the 2nd amendment.  Think about why that is.

The Robert Mueller Special Counsel Juggernaut thus far… – Ok, lessee here.  To this point, here is what Bob Mueller and his gang of Clinton/Obama hacks have produced thus far in their 16 month-long “investigation”, i.e., Witch Hunt:

– Obtained convictions of Paul Manafort for a series of financial crimes committed a decade ago while Manafort was working for Ukrainian clients alongside…wait for it… Tony Podesta, the brother of Hillary Clinton’s campaign chairman, John Podesta;

– Had to farm out the Michael Cohen case to the Southern District of New York due to its irrelevance to anything having to do with the Special Counsel’s charge;

– Has now postponed any sentencing of Gen. Mike Flynn for the FIFTH TIME since Flynn entered his guilty plea for “lying to the FBI,” a plea that has now been conclusively shown to have been given under duress as Mueller and his thugs threatened Flynn’s family;

– Is begging to get 30-90 days in jail for George Papadopoulos, who the fake news media tried for months to portray as the very justification for the FBI’s illegal spying on the Trump Campaign during 2016, but has now been conclusively revealed as little more than a bit player, if a player at all;

– Has indicted about 30 Russian ham sandwiches who will never come to America to stand trial;

– Was forced to desperately postpone the trial against the lone Russian ham sandwich that did show up for trial because he and his thugs were completely unprepared to make a case;

– Has in 16 months brought ZERO charges that in any way relate to allegations of Trump “collusion” with Russia, the ostensible justification for the investigation in the first place;

– Has in 16 months delivered ZERO evidence to support rampant media allegations of obstruction of justice on the part of President Trump.

This is a clown show, folks. Or a better analogy is that it’s like Seinfeld – a show that everyone watches and laughs about and talks about the next morning over the water cooler at work, but which is ultimately about nothing.  A big, ol’ flaming bag of nothing.

The Cohen thing is different in that it is at least about something real, not about a fantasy concocted in concert by the Democrats and the fake news media.  The problem for Trump haters is that it, like the charges against Manafort, is also about ancient history, two alleged affairs private citizen Trump supposedly had with a porn star and a centerfold more than a decade before he ran for office.

Again, the charges to which Cohen pleads are irrelevant to anything related to the Trump campaign or presidency – tax fraud, bank fraud and one charge of a campaign finance violation.  The problem with that last charge is that no money ever passed through any account in any way related to the Trump campaign.  The overly-zealous prosecutors in the case are going to try to claim that the payoffs to the porn star and centerfold were made in an effort to “influence” the 2016 election, and thus amount to a contribution in-kind to the Trump campaign.

Okayyyyyyyyy…do the Democrats and fake news media really want to go there?  Think about the possible implications of this line of reasoning for a moment.  If one accepts this logic, then basically every minute of programming that aired on CNN during 2016 would have to be classified as an illegal in-kind contribution to the Clinton campaign, not to mention 90% of the fake reporting by the rest of the fake news media.  This is billions of dollars worth of outright advocacy designed to – guess what? – influence the 2016 election.

By the same logic, every moment that Jim Acosta and April Ryan and 90% of the White House press corps spend on White House grounds should be accurately classified as opposition research for the Democrat Party and efforts to influence the 2018 mid-term and 2020 presidential elections.  Because if we’re going to be honest about this, that is all they are doing.  They are nothing more than operatives for the Democrat Party.

The other speculation is that the Cohen plea deal gives Democrats a reason to pursue impeachment should they take control of the House in November.  Again, do the Democrats really want to go there?  These are the same Democrats who steadfastly refused to condemn then-President Bill Clinton for having sex with a 22 year-old intern in the Oval Office, and then brutally bullying her to remain silent about it.  Most of them still refuse to condemn Clinton to this day, in fact.

The Democrats in 1998 couldn’t offer up a single vote in favor of impeaching Clinton when he was brought up on proven charges of obstruction of justice, perjury, lying to federal investigators, and abuse of FBI files.  Not one.  Single.  Vote.  But now they’re going to try to impeach a Republican president for the “crime” of entering into a hush money agreement over two alleged affairs from 10-12 years ago?

Without doubt, Trump’s behavior, if true, is wholly immoral and should be condemned on those grounds.  But as has been pointed out many, many times, Americans did not elect Donald Trump on the illusion he was a choir boy.  Besides, the Democrats voluntarily and unanimously surrendered any moral authority in these matters 20 years ago, and there is just no going back from that.

Despite all the media frenzy flying around today, Donald Trump will serve out this term and most likely end up being a highly successful two-term president.

The blood of Mollie Tibbets is on Congress’s hands. – Fake news media outlets all over America feverishly worked to avoid mentioning yesterday’s revelation that University of Iowa Student Mollie Tibbets was murdered by an illegal alien, because of course they did.  Doesn’t fit the narrative, after all.  One MSNBC Democrat spokesperson who nobody’s ever heard of refused to even mention Ms. Tibbets’ name, referring to her only as “some girl in Iowa…who Fox News is talking about.”

Many on the right, meanwhile, rushed in to blame Ms. Tibbets’ killing on the Democrats and their refusal to cooperate in the building of the border wall, but this is overly simplistic.  The truth is that the the current insane construct of our nation’s immigration laws has been a bipartisan enterprise that has been constructed by a series of congresses and presidents of both parties going all the way back to the 1960s.  Who can ever forget, for example, the “Gang of 8” that led the fight for a horrific comprehensive immigration reform bill in 2013?  That despicable exercise, which would have provided overarching amnesty, institutionalized open borders and turned the nation over to the Democrat Party into perpetuity,  included the very worst the U.S. Senate has to offer, including Republicans like Jeff Flake and John McCain, and Democrats like Chuck Schumer and Dick Durbin.

So you can’t just blame the Democrats for this murder and the ongoing crime spree by those living illegally in our country – the GOP establishment wing deserves all sorts of credit for it as well.  This has been a purely bipartisan exercise.

Just another day in Mueller is Seinfeld America.

That is all.

Today Was a Breathtaking Display of the Democrats’ and Media’s Rank Hypocrisy

The Evening Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

In 2003, after it had become apparent that the U.S. and allied forces who had invaded Iraq to remove Saddam Hussein were not going to find the vaunted weapons of mass destruction that served as the pretense for justifying the invasion, the fake U.S. and international news media, in coordination with the Democrat Party, demonized the U.S. intelligence community for its apparent failure to properly assess the threat.  The employees and leaders of the CIA, DIA, FBI, NSA and all the myriad other alphabet agencies that make up the U.S. intel apparatus were called incompetent, deceptive, even traitors by the fake media/Democrat propaganda complex for leading our country into an unjustified war.

Of course, no apologies were forthcoming when it later became obvious that Saddam had indeed had a stockpile of WMDs that he spirited off to Syria in advance of the allied invasion.  The left never apologizes for anything since no one in the fake news media ever demands it of them.

Those of us who defended the intel community at the time were also called all sorts of names, including but not limited to “traitors”, by these same Democrats and their media agents.  Fifteen years later, many of us are old enough to still remember all of that.

So it was a bit of a marvel today to see the fake news media/Democrat propaganda complex – including many of the same players from 2003 – demonize not the U.S. intel community, but President Donald Trump and his supporters after Trump criticized those myriad alphabet agencies during his press conference with Vladimir Putin.  In 2003, we were all traitors if we didn’t condemn the U.S. intel community, and today we’re all traitors if we do criticize them.

And this is all about Russia.  Many of us are also old enough to remember way back in 2012, when Barack Obama snarkily told Mitt Romney during a debate that “The 1980s called and they want their foreign policy back.”  That was Obama’s response to Romney’s contention that Russia constituted one of America’s foremost foreign adversaries.

Wait, isn’t that what the Democrats are all screaming today?  I know, right?

Yes, it is, but this was in 2012, barely a year after Obama, Hillary, Comey and Mueller had all participated in the selling of 20% of America’s uranium reserves to a Russian company that was just a front for Vladimir Putin, so the Democrats in those days felt the need to pretend we have no issues with Russia.  Six years later, they know that Putin knows everything about what happened back then and during the 2016 elections, and now feel desperate to de-legitimize him in the public’s mind in case he starts talking.

So now Putin and Russia are almost our awfulest, worstest enemies in the current media/Democrat talking point manual, just below President Trump, who is in fact our premier awfulest, worstest enemy.  Because President Trump also knows everything about what happened back then and during the 2016 elections, and well, he’s the President of the United States and will presumably at some point demand that Jeff Sessions and the Justice Department do something about it.  Make sense?

So, when President Trump said in the press conference that Putin made a “forceful” denial of Russian intervention in those 2016 elections, that is suddenly the worst thing that’s ever, ever, ever happened in all of American history going back to Columbus.

But hey, it was no big deal at all when Barack Obama, after meeting with Putin in 2016 and raising the subject of meddling with him, said of Putin’s denials that “He denies it. So the idea that somehow public shaming is gonna be effective, I think doesn’t read the thought process in Russia very well.”  Because back in 2016, all the fake reporters and Democrats assumed Hillary Clinton was going to win the election and whatever really did take place would just all be swept under the rug anyway.

But now it’s 2018 and Vladimir Putin knows everything that happened and Donald Trump knows everything that happened, and the fake reporters who helped facilitate it all and the Democrats who participated in it all are utterly, completely panicked and lashing out like never before.

And so you get tweets like this from Obama CIA Director and longtime communist voter John Brennan:

And this, from former Clinton advisor Peter Dau:

And this from supposedly bed-ridden John McCain, who was complicit in promoting the fake Trump Dossier during the 2016 campaign:

That statement, by the way, is at least 300 words long and was released within an hour after the end of the press conference.  Seems like a man with the energy to fully analyze an hour log press conference and whip out a 300-word statement in real time like that might also have the energy to travel to Washington and do his job.  But I digress.

At any rate, as so often happens, President Trump issued a tweet on this very subject as I was typing this piece.  Here it is:

But as I pointed out this morning, the fake news media, the Democrats and war mongers like Sen. McCain cannot have this “get along” nonsense happen – they all make their livings and control their power through the perpetuation of conflict and civil strife and violence.

Donald Trump is a 72 year-old multi-billionaire who decided to give up his retirement years in order to try to make life better for Americans.  Sometimes, it’s hard to imagine why he bothers.

Just another day in Donald Trump is doing his job for America.

The G7 Summit: Trump’s Reykjavik Moment

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Someone really needs to relieve John McCain of his I-phone. – The guy whose rejection by the American people gave us Barack Hussein Obama got all upset on Saturday over President Trump’s refusal to bow to our Euro-Canadian betters at the G7 summit, and decided to send the following tweet:

There is absolutely no evidence whatsoever that a bipartisan majority of the American people remain pro-globalization, but nevermind, the Senator from the news media has decided it is so.  And so, the guy who could not win the presidency in his own right decides to undermine the trade policy efforts of the guy who was able to win the presidency.

Delete your account, Senator McCain, and while you’re at it, resign the senate seat that you have not manned for a single day this year.  It’s time.

We are witnessing history on a grand scale. – Make no mistake about it, this G7 meeting was the most consequential such meeting ever held, an event every bit as crucial for the future of the free world as Reagan’s walking away from Gorbachev’s siren song at Reykjavik in 1986.  This is true for one simple reason:  The most powerful nation present, by far, now refuses to speak with the forked tongue of globalism.  What’s more, probably the second most powerful nation present – at least economically – is also trending in that direction.

Take a look at this very telling picture:

The first thing you notice is that the only guy seated is completely dominating the room.  He’s the absolute center of everyone’s attention, the singular target of their pleading and scolding.  The second thing you notice is the body language of Shinzo Abe, the Prime Minister of Japan, is exactly the same as President Trump’s.  They’re both taking in the preaching of Macron and Merkel, and not buying a word of what they’re saying.

Why?  Because they both know that these European peacocks are powerless without the backing of the United States of America.  Abe, in fact, knows that is the truth about his own country, and has been the truth since the end of World War II.

Despite all the shrill denunciations of President Trump in the fake American news media today, every bit of real leverage in that room is on America’s side.  The leaders of the other G7 nations know that, they know their economies can’t survive without the American largesse and one-sided trade practices they’ve enjoyed for 70+ years, and that is why they so detest Donald Trump.  He refuses to speak the false language of globalism that Senator McCain wants him to speak and which every previous U.S. president since Reagan has gladly spoken.

Senator McCain and his fellow establishment Republicans, along with every Democrat and fake journalist practicing today would have Mr. Trump simply surrender all that leverage, all that power, in the name of globalism and their fool’s notion of “fairness.”

This President isn’t going to do that because, unlike his four immediate predecessors in office, he understands the crucial nature of leverage and power, and plans to keep using both to advance the interests not of some international “world order”, but of the American people.

Today, he arrives in Singapore for preparations for his June 12 summit meeting with the Crazy Little Fat Guy from North Korea, Kim Jong Un.  The very same establishment Republicans, Democrats and fake journalists and talking heads who for the past two days have scolded President Trump for having the  nerve to jealously protect American interests and deploy our country’s massive leverage in international negotiations will now shift to fretting that Mr. Trump is now going to somehow completely surrender all that leverage and power in his negotiations with the little Rocket Man.

The hilarious part of all of this is that they’re all too dim and lacking in self-awareness to even understand the massive inherent contradictions and rank hypocrisy in their own arguments.  There is absolutely no reason at all to believe that this President – in stark contrast to his predecessors – will do anything other than jealously protect American interests and strongly deploy U.S. leverage while at the same time giving Kim the opportunity to concede what he must concede in order to improve his and his country’s situation.

But hey, this is what these people do – what they have been doing for the last 30 years, in fact.  It’s all they know, and it’s why our country is in inherently unfair trade agreements with pretty much every other major economy on the face of the earth, and it’s why Trump inherited a situation in which North Korea had been able to build its own nuclear capability as the free world stood by and did nothing.

In the magnificent press conference he held as he exited the G7 to head for Singapore on Saturday, the President in fact placed the blame for all of this squarely where it belongs:  On America’s past leaders.  “They can’t charge us 270 percent and we charge them nothing, that doesn’t work anymore,” he said before adding that he believes these other countries are now, despite outward appearances, committed to moving toward fairer trade agreements.  “I don’t blame them, I blame our leaders,” he continued. “In fact, I congratulate leaders of other countries for so crazily being able to make those trade deals that were so good for their country and bad for the United States.”

Exactly.  Our leaders have been suckers for too long.

“We are like the piggy bank that everybody is robbing,” he added,  “And that ends.”

John McCain and his fellow globalists hate that, because treating the American taxpayer as a massive piggy bank is what they’ve done for their entire adult lives.  Trump threatens their entire world view, and that’s why they hate him so desperately.

It’s very important – and telling – to note that Ronald Reagan received exactly the same reaction from milquetoast Republicans and the fake American news media after he walked away from Reyjavik.  Less than 3 years after he did that, the Soviet Union collapsed and the Berlin Wall came down.

It’s isn’t going to take that long for Trump to get the more favorable trade deals he is seeking from these powerless apparatchiks.  It will probably all be done within a year.  Because at the end of the day, all the leverage and power are in America’s hands, and Trump isn’t going to surrender it.

Just another day of Trump putting America first, and all the globalists hating him for it.

That is all.

John McCain Thumbs His Nose at the Voters One Last Time

Today’s Campaign Update

Somehow, I don’t imagine the NFL owners are sweating this one too much. – Radical DNC vice-chairman Keith Ellison says he’s going to boycott the NFL this season over the league’s recent decision to force players to honor the American flag, or remain in the locker room while the national anthem his being played.

Did I mention that Ellison’s a Democrat?  And not just any old Democrat, but one of the Democrat Party’s national leaders?  I wanted to be sure everyone is clear on that:  He’s not just in the Party, but, as one of the Party’s highest leaders, reflective of the values of the Party’s membership.  Democrats – if they didn’t exist, no one in their right minds would dream of inventing them.

First they came for your plastic straws, then they came for your Q-tips. – The increasingly fascist overlords at the European Union have proposed to eliminate plastic items like soda straws, cotton buds, coffee stirs and balloon sticks in a litter reduction effort.  They claim these bans will only take place where “sustainable” (read:  ineffective) alternatives are available, but we all know that’s a damn lie.  Fines and other draconian penalties will follow the new policy within a matter of a few years if not mere months.  This is how leftists implement increasing controls over all our lives.

 

About that whole Hillary Clinton/Facebook thing… – In response to a question last Friday, the Pantsuit Princess told an audience that she wants to be CEO of Facebook.  Most observers just shrugged that off, saying hey, she was just answering a question, and anyway, that could never happen, so no biggie.

Right?  Well, no.  Not right at all.

We have to remember that the Fainting Felon hasn’t uttered an unscripted word in public in more than 30 years.  She doesn’t make off-hand comments, doesn’t give answers unless there is a purpose behind them.

Nor does she just leave the reporting following her public appearances to chance – her handlers and aides were no doubt meeting with compliant fake reporters afterwards to lobby them to emphasize the parts of the event they want emphasized.  From this event, the only remark by the Coughing Crook that made headlines was the line about wanting to be CEO of Facebook.  This is not an accident.

The evidence lies in how she expanded on her initial answer:

“It’s the biggest news platform in the world,” Clinton said. “Most people in our country get their news, true or not, from Facebook.”

“Now Facebook is trying to take on some of the unexpected consequences of their business model, and I for one hope they get it right because it really is critical to our democracy that people get accurate information on which to make decisions.”

This is the Cackling Crone attempting to condition the public to accept her as an arbiter of what constitutes “accurate information” on social media and/or media platforms.

Now, obviously, the Hacking Hag isn’t going to become Facebook’s CEO, but what about being named to its board of directors?  Or as some sort of special advisor?  Why not?  Or what about being named to some executive or advisory role with some other social media platform?

Facebook has already been loading up its executive staff with ex-Clintonistas and Obama thugs; the Obamas themselves are branching into producing programs for a terribly misguided Nexflix; it’s only natural for the Grasping Grifter to be reaching for her own cut of the pie.

Everything – literally everything – the Clintons say in public is designed to condition the public, either to rationalize something they’ve already done or normalize something one of them is about to do.  Trust me:  this whole “CEO of Facebook” nonsense is no different.

Keeping it all in the family. – If you’ve wondered why Arizona (and the New’s Media’s) Senator John McCain hasn’t done the right thing and given up the seat he’s clung to for 32 long years in the wake of his diagnosis with terminal brain cancer, it’s really pretty simple:  He wants to bequeath the seat to his wife, Cindy McCain.

Basically, it’s all about the state of Arizona’s rules for filling a senate seat that becomes vacant in the midst of a term.  If McCain were to vacate the seat prior to June 1, state law requires that a special election be held this coming November.  If he clings to the seat until that date, Arizona’s Republican Governor Doug Ducey gets to appoint McCain’s replacement, and that person will be allowed to serve unchallenged until a special election is held in November, 2020.

This person will then have more than two years to get him- or herself established in the job and thus enjoy all the advantages of incumbency when 2020 rolls around.  As always, the DC establishment protects its own, and in this instance, its own is John McCain’s wife Cindy, at least if you believe the reporting done in Monday’s story from Newsmax.

For all anyone outside of the McCain clan knows, Cindy McCain might hold political views more in line with Chuck Schumer than those of Mitch McConnell.  At best, we can hope she’s at least a RINO who will, like her husband, vote with the GOP caucus most of the time.  It’s also important to note here that John McCain, due to his tragic illness, has not set foot in Washington DC this entire year, a situation that has frequently left McConnell without an operational majority.  This is dereliction of duty, plain and simple.

So set are McCain, Gov. Ducey and the rest of the GOP’s good ol’ boys (and gals) club on keeping this senate seat in the McCain family that they are willing to deny the voters of Arizona any say whatsoever in determining McCain’s successor for the next two and a half years.  But then, John McCain has been thumbing his nose at the voters for 32 years and they just kept sending him back expecting a different result.  So at the end of the day, this final thumbing of McCain’s nose is exactly what Arizona’s Republican voters deserve.

Just another day in grifting Clintons and clinging McCains 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.

London’s Fascists and America’s Warmongers Dominated the Sunday News Cycle

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

The fascists come out into full view in Jolly Old England. – As London has suffered through its radical Islamic-driven epidemic of knife killings over the last few years, I have occasionally joked here and on Twitter (@GDBlackmon) that the next thing you know, they’ll be banning knives in England.  Over the weekend, any further joking on that subject became moot, as London’s Mayor, Sadiq Khan, took to his own Twitter feed to issue the following edict:

When free societies force their law enforcement officials to behave as if they are incredibly stupid and have no means of identifying the real threat – all in the name of political correctness, of course – the “solution” inevitably ends up being that everyone ends up being treated as a threat.

We see this in our airport “security” measures, in the name of which we regularly witness the spectacle of Homeland Security officials patting down small babies and 90 year-old great grandmothers.

We see this happening in Parkland, Florida, where the school kids are now forced to use see-through backpacks by school and law enforcement officials intent upon continuing their policies of refusing to enforce the law against student criminals.

We see this in our regular gun control debates that invariably take place in the wake of mass shootings, shootings that almost always are committed by unstable individuals with long histories of interactions with law enforcement officials.

Of course, the politically-correct goal in all of these and many other instances in our idiotic society is to force law enforcement to treat every individual as if we are all equal threats, even though those officials have all sorts of means of identifying and acting against real threats if they were just allowed by law to do so.  But because those means might offend someone, everyone must be placed at higher risk.

The reality is that political correctness, and worshiping at the altar of some fool’s notion of “diversity” at any cost leads inevitably to the rise of fascism.  You don’t have to believe me, all you have to do is spend 15 minutes Googling “college campus political correctness” and browsing through the thousands of articles documenting “safe spaces”, the shutting down of any speech that might accidentally offend someone, classes and seminars that blame every evil in the world on white males, and on and on and on.

The notion of fascism has always been portrayed by our left-wing fake news media and entertainment industry as somehow coming out of the political right.  The truth is that fascism is and always has been the inevitable outcome of political leftism.

The fascists have come out into full view in Western Europe, as leftist leaders in England, Germany, France, Sweden and elsewhere implement policies to allow Europe’s native cultures to be overwhelmed and ultimately destroyed by radical Islam.  If you think that can’t come to the United States, well, just wait until the next time we decide to put a Democrat in the White House, and see what happens.  It won’t take long at all.

Four days after President Donald Trump instructed Defense Secretary James Mattis to present him with a plan to withdraw U.S. troops from Syria, dozens of people were killed in a chemical attack on the town of Douma.  As the Administration rushed to blame Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad for the attack – and the Russians for somehow facilitating it – all the usual suspect warmongers like Lindsey Graham, Susan Collins and John McCain rushed to the nearest TV camera or Twitter feed to advocate for not just keeping the U.S. military in Syria, but going to an all-out war footing there.

Senator Graham was so excited at the prospect of sending thousands of additional U.S. military personnel into harm’s way during a series of Sunday morning TV interviews that he could barely contain his glee.  He and McCain and Collins have truly never met a Middle Eastern civil war in which they did not want to involve America’s armed forces.

It was painfully obvious that none of them – nor any of the army of talking-head warmongers in the fake news media – took a moment to reflect on the incredibly convenient timing of this chemical attack, or to assess what possible motive Assad – or especially Putin – would have to commit such an atrocity less than 96 hours after President Trump had expressed his desire to get America’s military personnel safely out of that hellhole.  They never gave any consideration to the possibility that this atrocity might have actually been committed by Syrian rebels desperate to keep the U.S. involved in the theater, given that they have been losing badly in the conflict.

But this is not just about Syria here in the U.S.  All of these people – along with the entire Democrat Party and most of the fake news media – have been aggressively pushing President Trump into a war posture with Russia since even before he took office last year, forcing the President to abandon his goal of improving relations with Putin.  They no doubt leapt with joy Sunday evening as reports of missile strikes on Syria began to come across the news wires, thinking their tireless warmongering had already resulted in action by the Trump Administration.

The U.S. military denies it had anything to do with the air strikes, even though Syrian state television initially claimed otherwise.  Russia and Syria later accused Israel of conducting the attacks, which could be the case, since Israel has carried out air strikes into Sryia whenever they perceived a threat to their own country’s security.  As if this writing, the Israeli military has had no comment, but we will probably find out who conducted the bombing, or if it indeed even took place.

But back to the point of all of this, and that is that every thinking American ought to be taking a moment today to reflect on the fact that all these warmongers – which includes the neo-conservative element in the GOP, virtually the entire Democrat Party, and almost the whole of the nation’s fake news media – have spent the last 15 months doing everything they can to push President Trump into an increasingly aggressive and openly hostile posture towards Russia.

Isn’t it time we as a society started demanding these people tell us why that is?

Just another day in warmongering America.

That is all.
