Ted Cruz: “DOJ MUST Ensure” Ghislaine Maxwell Remains Among the Living

Let’s make sure all those security cameras are actually turned on this time, hmmmm? – Texas Senator Ted Cruz laid down a bar for Attorney General William Barr and his people to meet in the case involving Ghislaine Maxwell this morning:

Note the quotes Cruz places around the phrase “hang himself” – clearly communicating that he shares our skepticism about the official government story around the killing of Jeffrey Epstein while in federal custody last year.

Keeping Maxwell safe likely will indeed be a challenge given that a convenient case of “COVID-19” has been added to the list of ways she could be offed or find her demise. Why, who wouldn’t believe it if she were to suddenly grow very ill and be unable to fight off a virus with a mortality rate of somewhere around 1/2 of 1 percent, a rate that continues to go lower with each passing day of grossly inflated “case” numbers being reported by hospitals around the country?

If you believe social media, the BBC and probably other media outlets are already testing their future stories and headlines about poor Ghislaine’s fight against the viral gift from China:

Image

Folks on Twitter are swearing that story really did momentarily go up at the BBC’s website today, although I can’t vouch for that. But would it surprise you?

Think about the names of the powerful people who are threatened by Maxwell’s status as a federal prisoner who might start singing like a canary any day in order to avoid spending life in the pokey:

Bill and Hillary Clinton

Prince Andrew of Britain

Billionaire Mike Bloomberg

Bill Gates

Some guy named John Roberts who may or may not be the same John Roberts currently serving as chief justice of the Supreme Court

These are but a few of the hundreds of very prominent and extremely wealthy people who have been rumored to be pals with convicted pedophile Jeffrey Epstein. Epstein himself, remember, lasted less than a month before he very conveniently committed “suicide” by executing a maneuver to hang himself in his cell that in reality would have been physically impossible.

While Epstein was the principal in the pedophilia and sex-trafficking ring, Maxwell was the facilitator and thus, no less a threat to Epstein’s clientele.

The Daily Caller reports today that one of Epstein’s, ahem, ‘business associates’ is telling anyone who will listen that the FBI has known of Maxwell’s whereabouts for months and that he expects she will “snap in two seconds” at the prospect of spending years in prison:

“They knew where she was all the time [in New Hampshire],” Hoffenberg told the publication. “It was a question if America was going to take the case or not, now America has made up its mind to take the case.”

Hoffenberg reportedly maintains contact with Maxwell’s spokesperson, and told the Sun that Maxwell did not think she would be arrested. (RELATED: FBI Knew Of Allegations Against Ghislaine Maxwell As Early As 1996, Accuser Says. It Took 24 Years To Arrest Her)

“If they keep her in prison, she’ll crack in two seconds,” he said. “She’s not able to take that sort of cruel punishment, prison is too tough and hard, she’ll have to be in solitary confinement, and she’ll snap.”

“She’s going to cooperate and be very important,” he added, before noting that her words might implicate high profile people including the UK’s Prince Andrew. “Andrew may be very concerned, and there’s a lot of people very worried, a lot of powerful people been named [in the scandal], and she knows everything.”

[End]

Senator Cruz understands what the deal is here, and he wants Attorney General Barr to understand that. Honestly, if Maxwell dies mysteriously in prison in the coming weeks, then those of us who have been sitting quietly as America’s cities have been looted and burned might need to do some burning and rioting of our own.

That is all.

Democrats: You Could Never Make Them up, Not in a Million Years

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

Some observations on the passing scene…

So, he’s just like Mitt Romney, then. – At the trial of big Democrat donor Harvey Weinstein on Friday, one of the monster’s many victims testified that Weinstein has no testicles.

Image may contain: 1 person, closeup

The Junior Senator from Utah could not be reached for comment.

Do better, Utah voters. Please.

It was just another average day in Iowa for the nation’s Unfrozen Caveman Senator:

Speaking of Quid Pro Joe, two days after President Donald Trump (I will never tire of typing those three glorious words in sequence) held a rally that attracted well over 15,000 in Des Moines, here is a high school gym in Cedar Rapids being set up for a Biden “rally”:

That’s right: There are about 40 chairs set up in circular formation on the floor of the gym. This is the guy who the nation’s corrupt news media and its Democrat masters want you to believe is such a threat that President Trump tried to rig the 2020 election against him with the Ukraine. Folks, Joe Biden is not even a threat to Pete Buttigieg and Amy Klobuchar.

Charlie Kirk makes a really strong point here:

Think about the ages of the House Leadership, combined with the ages of the three leading Democrat presidential contenders – Biden, Bernie and Bloomberg – all of whom are 77 or older. The average American worker retires before the age of 65, yet these elderly people still cling to power and seek even more of it as they approach octogenarian status.

Ask yourself why that is? Is it simply that political power is its own narcotic? Or could it have something to do with the fact that each and every one of these people other than Bloomberg somehow managed to accumulate massive amounts of wealth while never earning even a $200,000 annual salary?

The answer here is obvious. For those who play the game, being a certified denizen of the DC Swamp is its own reward.

And by the way, if you don’t believe the three old white guys I mentioned above are indeed the three front-runners for the Democrat nomination because that’s not yet who the polls say they are, take a look at the latest betting odds:

Image

You can look at polls and cite them to me all you want, but I will tell you that the people putting down real, hard-earned money on who is the most likely winner of this clown-show nominating battle are a far more reliable gauge of how the race is really stacking up this far out from its conclusion. You should expect Bloomberg to continue to rise in this ranking as he plows through his personal fortune trying to buy the nomination, and the clearly infirm Biden to keep dropping.

But…but…but AOC says we’re all gonna be dead by 2030! – The increasingly insufferable loooooooser from Georgia, failed gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams, told the always certain but always wrong prognosticator Nate Silver on Friday that she has a master plan for her life in which she will be elected president of the United States by the year 2040.

Given that the Democrat Party’s talking points on Climate Change variously claim that we will all be dead in 5 years or 10 years or 12 years or 6 years, depending on the day of the week and the phase of the moon, it seems like the Portly Petunia might be in need of speeding up her life’s timetable just a bit.

Democrats: If they didn’t already exist, no one could ever make them up, not in a million years. And honestly, who in their right mind would want to?

That is all.

Some Political Predictions for 2020 – A Year of WINNING

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

As 2019 comes to an end, several aspects of the political situation in the United States and globally are becoming clear. – After a very eventful year during which the Democrat/Media/Deep State Axis of Disinformation threw everything they could think of at President Donald Trump, he is now emerging as the United States emerged in the wake of the destruction of the Soviet Union, as the only real political superpower remaining.

The Democrats, meanwhile, are in a shambles. The impeachment scam run by San Fran Nan, Bugeyes Schiff and Jabba the Nadler has had the unintended consequence actually strengthening President Trump’s polling numbers to the point that he now holds leads over every major Democrat candidate in 3 of the 4 most recently-released polls, and has a double digit lead in the key states of Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin.  With the Republicans able to control the process for a Senate trial, this polling dynamic promises to only get worse in the coming weeks.

Meanwhile, their Party’s presidential field is scaring the public to death. Joe Biden is a doddering, bumbling shell of a human being who is desperately trying to avoid being prosecuted for looting the Ukraine with his ne’er-do-well son before he can win the Democrat Party’s nomination; The Commie is so bankrupt of any idea that does not involve stealing and wasting Other People’s Money that he has had to enlist the help of congress’s most notorious nitwit, AOC, to keep his campaign going; Fauxcahontas has seen her campaign stagnate under the weight of too many bald-faced lies about her personal life; Preacher Pete peaked in July at 8% in the polls and lacks the appeal to move any higher than that; Nanny Bloomberg has managed to secure just 5% support with his $150 million ad campaign spend, and the rest of the field is too insignificant to waste words on.

Put simply, the Democrats enter 2020 desperately in need of a new candidate, some dynamic, truly appealing, vibrant new national figure who could excite their demented voter base and give them some shred of hope of mounting a competitive effort against the incumbent President next Fall. But the only thing they have waiting in the wings for the right opening to step into the fray is the Pantsuit Princess, the Coughing Crook, the Fainting Felon, the Grasping Grifter, the Cackling Crank.  You know her as Hillary Rodham Clinton. Not a good look, Democrats. America has already been there and done that, twice. Are you really going to let her go for the presidential loser hat trick?

All of that and so much more points us to a fascinating 2020 to come. Here are some predictions on how it will all play out:

  • Pelosi will relent on her failed, idiotic tactic of withholding the articles of impeachment and transmit them to the Senate shortly after congress reconvenes on January 7. At the same time, she will authorize her carnival freak show committee chairs to institute the impeachment process permanently, so they can mount yet another new scam later in the year;
  • The Senate trial will last barely a week, as 51 Republicans and one Democrat – Joe Manchin – will vote to acquit President Trump following the presentation of the case by the House Managers. RINO senators Mutt Romney and Lisa Murkowski will vote “present”;
  • Communists across the globe will become incredibly excited when The Commie ekes out narrow wins in both the Iowa Caucus and New Hampshire primary, with Preacher Pete Buttigieg running a close second in both states;
  • The Commie/Preacher Pete boomlet will quickly run aground, however, on the shoals of the African American vote in South Carolina and the Hispanic vote in Nevada, which will carry Quid Pro Joe to closer-than-expected wins in those next two contests on February 29;
  • Super Tuesday on March 3 will flush the deadwood out of the Democrat primary system. Bloomberg will see his strategy of skipping the first four contests come a crapper, as his spend of $300 million by then will gain him no better than 5th place finishes in any state. Biden will win both California and Texas, the big prizes of the day, along with several other states, but his small margins of victory will prevent him from piling up a big delegate lead. Warren will win Massachusetts, Sanders will prevail in his home state of Vermont and neighboring New Hampshire and Maine, keeping both senators in the race. Buttigieg will win no state on Super Tuesday, but will fight on as the only remaining protected “miniority” candidate as Cory Booker, Andrew Yang and Tulsi Gabbard finally give up their ghosts of a campaign;
  • Bloomberg will also remain in the race and keep spending tons of money in anti-Trump ads because, in case you haven’t figured this out yet, he’s not really running for the office, but as a proxy for the Democrat National Committee, which is flat, dead broke;
  • At some point in the Spring, the Democrat/Media/Deep State Axis of Disinformation will create a new fake “scandal” out of whole cloth and mount yet another impeachment effort, complete with more rounds of Soviet-style hearings led by Commissars Schiff and Jabba. They will vote out new articles of impeachment during the week of the Republican National Convention in late August. This is as predictable as the sun rising in the East;
  • Also in the Spring, shortly after the Democrats have begun their next impeachment scam, the public arrests and perp walks coming out of the investigation by U.S. Attorney John Durham and Attorney General William Barr will commence. Those arrests will take place simultaneously, and involve most, but not all, of the major figures who led the DOJ/CIA/FBI Spygate operation and Coup Cabal. The corrupt news media will use the occasion will do its furious best to smear the reputations of Barr and Durham and any other prosecutor who becomes enlisted in the operation, because hey, that’s what our corrupt news media does;
  • Shortly after the arrests have taken place, Barr and Durham will hold a joint press conference during which they will let it be known that these arrests are a beginning, not an end, and that Durham and his team are still building cases targeting other, possibly higher officials in the Obama Administration. A few days later, Barack and Michelle Obama and Bill and Hillary Clinton will be seen walking the beaches in non-extradition treaty countries;
  • Predictably, the system of awarding delegates proportionally rather than winner-take-all will ensure that no candidate will enter the July Democrat National Convention with the majority of delegates needed to secure the nomination on the first ballot. But Biden will win on the second ballot, when the “Super Delegates” get to vote, due to the myth of his “electability.” Biden will choose Buttigieg as his running mate in order to add “diversity” to the Democrat ticket;
  • In kicking off his acceptance speech, Biden will say that “It’s fantastic to be here in the great state of Wyoming!” The convention is being held in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. His campaign will go downhill from there;
  • The Commie, angry that the Party has once again rejected his Marxist siren song, will announce he is running as an “independent,” and will choose AOC as his running mate despite the fact that she is five years too young to serve as Vice President, a fact that AOC and the Twitter Outrage Mob will denounce as a relic of “white male supremacy”;
  • The Democrat/Media/Deep State Axis of Disinformation’s latest impeachment sham will backfire once again, adding another 4% of the popular vote to the President’s support base;
  • Despite massive Democrat voter fraud efforts that inflate Biden’s vote total by 2 to 4 million votes, President Trump will win 52% of the popular vote in the November election to Biden’s 40%. The Sanders/Ocasio-Cortez independent ticket will come in with just 5%, which is about the percentage of Democrat voters who make up the Twitter Outrage Mob;
  • Much of Trump’s margin of victory – which will include a whopping 370 electoral votes – will be due to the fact the he will receive 20% of the African American vote and almost 40% of Hispanic votes. He will also become the first Republican in modern times to pull a majority of he Jewish vote, as Jewish folks become increasingly aware of the fact that all of these attacks on their people are taking place in cities that have been run by Democrats for decades. The corrupt media will continue to call the President a “racist” and an “anti-Semite” despite those results;
  • Biden and all other Democrats will refuse to accept the results of the election, attributing their latest failure to mythical “voter suppression” efforts by Trump and the Republicans. They will beef up George Soros’s funding of Antifa and other radical leftwing riot crews. The resulting mass riots in major, Democrat-run cities will make those seen following the 2016 election look like a day in the park;
  • The Democrat mayors will blame the riots and looting and carnage on President Trump.

Some things are just too predictable.

Happy New Year!

That is all.

Why do Liberals like Bloomberg have a God Complex?

THERE IS AN EPIDEMIC OF FYOGISM (FOR YOUR OWN GOOD-ISM)

Former New York Mayor and Presidential candidate, Michael Bloomberg recently held a Town Hall meeting in the Denver Metro area, but the town wasn’t invited.

Among his proposals that emerged from the soundbites and photo ops was another ban on “assault style weapons” and the removal of immunity for gun makers and dealers in civil lawsuits. Bloomberg also wants to enact a federal version of “Red Flag” Gun laws.

This is hardly surprising since he has already spent a considerable amount from his vast 54 billion dollar fortune to twist the arms of state legislators around the country to impose numerous gun control laws regardless of what residents of those states might want. Never mind that he has never lived in any of those states or paid taxes in them.

When it comes to government regulations, gun control, and growing the power and scope of government, there is never a point at which Liberals or Leftists say, “Okay, that’s enough. We’re done now.”

Bloomberg for example, seems to fancy himself something of a helicopter parent for the country. He wants to protect us from a changing and growing list of perceived dangers such as sugary sodas, loud ear buds and salt.

Leftist ideology typifies the kind of narcissistic, dictatorial parents that send many adults into therapy for twenty years. Such parents tend to discourage their kids from growing up and making their own choices and mistakes. This behavior feeds their own needs, not the needs of their children.  The desire to use one’s power and resources to treat adults like children and keep them dependent is not that much different, and it is anything but generous or altruistic.

There is an epidemic of FYOGism (For your own good-ism) that is being fueled by a Left that has de-educated the young in the principles of Liberty, individual freedom, and personal responsibility on which our country was proudly founded.

Without these cornerstones, people can be easily swayed to vote for people who push policies that infringe on their neighbor’s freedoms. They don’t understand that soon, the loosening of these boundaries will infringe on their own freedoms as well.

Republicans have the moral high ground on this and a host of other issues, but they have been too afraid and ill-prepared to claim it and adequately explain it. Genuine altruism and love for one’s fellow man requires restraint from using one’s own power to control them. It requires respect for their choices even when one heartily disagrees.

Maybe that’s why it’s so important to be reminded that whatever you conceive God to be, our rights come from God and not from men.  God gave us free will but a man who thinks he’s God never does.

Harris Drops Out, Leaving a Snowy-White Democrat Field Behind

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

[Note: Today’s Campaign Update will be on a delayed morning schedule from November 30 through  December 4.]

What are the Democrats going to do about all these racist…ummm…Democrats???? – Kamala Harris became the latest of the 6,000 or so Democrat presidential candidates to drop out of the race on Tuesday, and naturally the Democrat/Media propaganda complex ran with the “America is a racist nation” narrative in response.

Let’s examine that notion for a moment and take it to its logical conclusion.

Kamala Harris ended her campaign for one reason and one reason only, and that is because registered Democrat voters told liberal pollsters that they don’t plan to vote for the California Democrat Senator in the Democrat Party’s upcoming Democrat primaries and Democrat caucuses. The reality is that, if she wasn’t polling down in the low single digits among these Democrat voters, this Democrat Senator would still be a candidate for the Democrat nomination.

There are no Republicans, or conservatives, or independents involved in this equation. The simple fact of the matter is that Kamala Harris is ending her campaign because she has been utterly and completely rejected by a bunch of racist, sexist….Democrats. That’s according to the Democrat/media’s own narrative.

Faced with this despicably false narrative, it is even more instructive to observe exactly which candidates have managed to gain so much support from Democrat voters that they have forced Harris from the race. According to the RealClearPolitics average of the most current polls, Harris trails five other candidates, all of whom have one thing in common: They are all as white as white can be.

Not a minority among them. No Hispanics, even though the Democrat voters could have shown support for Texan Julian Castro. No Asians, even though Andrew Yang is in the candidate field. No African Americans, even though both Harris and Cory Booker happen to be in the field.

Just a bunch of white folks, and boy, what a collection of white folks they are:

In first place is the nation’s Unfrozen Caveman Senator, Quid Pro Joe Biden, a pasty white guy from either Delaware or Pennsylvania depending which side the bed he happens to wake up from each day, a 77 year-old fossil from another time who brags about working with fellow pasty white segregationists during the Nixon Administration and thinks “malarky” makes for a catchy 23-skidoo campaign slogan that will attract Millenial voters.

Next up is The Commie, Bernie Sanders, a 78 year-old pasty white guy from Vermont, a life-long Bolshevik who has never worked a day in the private sector or accomplished anything real in his entire life.

Currently in third place is Little Princess Gonna Take All Your Wampum, Elizabeth Warren. Warren is as white as the driven snow, but managed to advance herself into lucrative positions in life by lying about actually being a Native American. Now, that’s the kind of “diversity” racist Democrat voters really admire.

In fourth place is Preacher Pete, the very white, 37 year-old Mayor of a college town in Indiana who regularly polls at 0% among those racist African American Democrat voters.

Next up is the newly-insurgent Michael Bloomberg, the billionaire ex=Mayor of New York City who is even whiter and older than Creepy Uncle Joe.

Taken together, those five pasty-white, mostly-elderly, not-minority-in-any-way candidates currently receive 74% of the total polling support from Democrat voters. Not Republicans, not Independents, not any broad cross-section of “Americans” and not among a bunch of rednecks out here in Flyover Country: DEMOCRATS.

The true fact of the matter is that Kamala Harris failed to inspire passion among the Democrat base because she is a horrible candidate who ran a horrible campaign. Given that she is also reportedly a horrible excuse for a human being who slept her way into political power and is accused of abusing her staff, this is really  not at all surprising. She was supposed to be the female version of Barack Hussein Obama, but instead turned out to be just a cross between Sheila Jackson Lee and Amy Klobuchar.

If “racism” or “sexism” has anything to do with Harris’s rejection, then Democrats have only to look into the mirror to see who those sexist racists are.

That is all.

Michael Bloomberg Formally Launches His Phony Candidacy

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

This is the Democrats’ great new hope? Trump’s a shoe-in. – In the grand tradition of awful presidential campaign announcement videos – like the one of Fauxcahontas pretending to cook up some American Indian food in her kitchen while slugging down a beer – former Democrat Mayor Michael Bloomberg formally announced his entry into the race over the weekend with this wretched posting on Instagram:

Yeah, that’s really gonna shake up the race, huh? Bloomberg has all the energy of a hibernating bear and the charm of the average New York City street vendor. Check out that posture – what message is this 77 year-old man attempting to communicate to his audience by perching himself pelvis-forward in that tiny chair?

And you have to love the little message box that is superimposed atop his crotch, saying “Send me your questions for #AskMike.” The first question, obviously placed there by an order-obeying staffer, is “What’s your favorite pizza?” Yes, surely, that pressing question is no doubt on the collective hive mind of every potential Democrat voter who has surveyed the existing field of candidates and come away wondering “can these idiots really deliver the grade of pepperoni I truly want? And what about the anchovies and extra cheese?”

Think about that for a second: Remember that these Democrats never do or say anything in public that hasn’t been polled or focus group tested. You’re telling me that Bloomberg paid someone good money to come up with this?

Of course, here’s the dirty little secret in all of this: Bloomberg isn’t in this race to win the Democrat presidential nomination. He’s in this race so he can receive the cheaper political candidates’ rates as he invests a few hundred million dollars in TV and social media ads. Those ads won’t target Quid Pro Joe, Fauxcahontas, The Commie or Preacher Pete, like any serious candidate for the nomination would do. They will target President Donald Trump.

Bloomy isn’t really a candidate for the presidency, he’s part of the resistance. He knows he can’t win this nomination after watching fellow idiot billionaire Tom Steyer drop a hundred mil or so of his own money to finally get to the point where he is polling 1% in the national polls.

But he also knows the Democrat Party is broke, with the GOP out-raising it by a factor of almost 10 to 1. The party’s base is fractured, and its gigantic field of candidates ensures that the money invested by all the pro-Democrat super PACs will remain fractured as well for quite some time to come.

So, Mayor Big Gulp could pour his money into one or more of those Super PACs or into some dark money “issues advocacy” groups, and is very likely already doing that. He could also donate gobs of money to the Democrat National Committee, but that would be controlled by doofuses like DNC Chairman Tom Perez. By pretending to be a candidate himself, Bloomberg gets a lot more bang for the buck. More importantly, he is able to fully control the message.

But if his first video offering is any indication of his messaging prowess, he is, like Steyer, most likely going to be wasting his money.

Somewhere, President Trump is laughing. It’s hard to blame him.

That is all.

Texas Dems’ Backup Plan for Challenging John Cornyn is Hilarious

The Afternoon Campaign Update
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Say it ain’t so, Mikey! – Y’all, Mike Bloomberg is not running for president. Counseling sessions for all 12 of you devastated fans will begin at 10:00 tomorrow.

One of the most entertaining aspects of this Democrat race for the loser’s ring thus far has been watching how our fake news media considers it to be big “news” when a billionaire like Bloomberg or Tom Steyer makes his inevitable announcement that he’s not really going run, not at all.

Why is this news? This is the fourth time we’ve been through this breathless ‘Is he in? Is he out?’ nonsense with the former New York City Mayor. He’s played the same game in every election cycle since 2008. That he was going to end up not running was pretty much a certainty. The only semi-mystery was how he would communicate the “news.” This time, he made his announcement by publishing an “op/ed” in …wait for it….BLOOMBERG, the media outlet that carries his name because he owns it.

In what all the social justice warriors would no doubt call an op/ed of white privilege, he said this, in part:

“Should I devote the next two years to talking about my ideas and record, knowing that I might never win the Democratic nomination? Or should I spend the next two years doubling down on the work that I am already leading and funding and that I know can produce real and beneficial results for the country, right now? I’ve come to realize that I’m less interested in talking than doing.”

Translated into plain English, he knew he couldn’t win, so he decided to just go and blow half a billion of his personal fortune supporting other socialist candidates who call themselves Democrats.

That’s all fine, but can we please quit pretending it’s “news”? Because it isn’t. Not at all.

A bit of real, actual news is that former Attorney General Eric Holder also announced on Tuesday that he not running in 2020. That is actual news because, unlike with Bloomberg, there was valid reason to believe Holder would make a run, given that he has spent the last two years making speeches in key primary states like New Hampshire and Iowa, and seemingly making other preparations necessary to mount a real campaign.

The utterly-corrupt Holder, who, as Attorney General illegally ran guns to Mexican drug cartels and otherwise proudly served as Barack Obama’s “wingman,” made his announcement late Monday night on Stephen Colbert’s show where he knew he wouldn’t be asked any tough questions. Because being curiosity-free zones for Democrat politicians is what all the late night talk shows have become over the last two years.

Here is how bankrupt for talent the Texas Democrat Party truly is. – They’re thinking about putting Wendy Davis up against incumbent Republican Senator John Cornyn when he runs for re-election in 2020.

Yes, that Wendy Davis, the Wendy Davis who was, with the help and funding of a bunch of Obama minions, going to “turn Texas blue” back in 2014 in her race against Greg Abbott for the state’s governorship. She was such an unmitigated disaster in that campaign that she ended up pulling just 39% of the vote, crushed by a 20% margin. Even poor, under-funded Lupe Valdez, who the Texas Democrat Party basically abandoned amid their attack of Beto fever last year, made a much better showing than Ms. Davis did, ultimately cutting Abbott’s winning margin to just 12%.

Nevertheless, should San Antonio Congressman Joaquin Castro ultimately decide not to challenge Cornyn, Wendy, not Lupe, is the Democrats’ backup plan.

My goodness.  You seriously cannot make this stuff up.

Determining an order of succession became necessary last week when media darling Irish Bob O’Rourke finally made up his very strange mind to pass on challenging Cornyn for his seat. That made perfect sense. When you think it through, the ultra-leftist Beto has a far better chance of becoming the Democrat presidential nominee than he does of winning a statewide race in Texas, where no Democrat has prevailed in such a race for a full quarter-century now.

Those who disagree with that assertion by pointing to O’Rourke’s close, 3-point loss to Ted Cruz are missing the boat here. Cruz is as controversial in Texas as he is in Washington, and there are plenty of Texas Republicans who simply won’t vote for him under any circumstances.  That, combined with Irish Bob’s $50 million spending advantage in the race, is why that race was far more competitive than any other Texas statewide contest.

No Democrat is going to have that advantage vs. Cornyn, and Big John is about a controversial in Texas as the average Rio Grande Valley cantaloupe. Despite Texas’s shifting demographics, the race against Cornyn is a double-digit deal from start to finish, and Castro would be well-advised to skip it himself and hold onto that seat in congress until he can run against Cruz when he’s up again in 2024. By then, demographics will have presumably shifted even further, Beto fever will have run its course, and Castro will be the party’s best option in a race against Cruz.

Should Castro make the smart decision here, that would leave the Democrats in the lurch in the big race on the Texas ballot in 2020. If Wendy Davis is really the party’s backup plan, they are well and truly screwed.

That is all.
