Sunday News Roundup: Southern Invasion Begins Anew; Bowser Plans Permanent DC Police State

Welp, it appears that America has now reached peak stupid:

Wait! Ok, NOW America has really reached Peak Stupid. Maybe.:

Image may contain: 1 person, eyeglasses, child and indoor

You just could never, never, ever make this stuff up, folks.

Joe Biden has no idea what day it is or how all these people got into his bedroom, Part 6,586:

Don’t worry, folks, nothing to see here! – Just thousands of Honduran “migrants” organized by Democrat activists storming up through Central America to restart the invasion of the United States as soon as the sock puppet is installed into the presidency:

My goodness. Four years of gains about to just go up in smoke.

This and other caravans are being organized now in order to take advantage of China Joe Potato Head Biden’s plans to grant “legal status” and a “path to citizenship” to illegal aliens in the country today. The official estimate is 11 million such folks are in the country today, but that “official” number has been used since 2008 despite the fact that the number has grown far higher in the intervening dozen years, and likely now stands at 20 million or higher.

Biden plans to ask congress to move legislation on this on his first day in office, according to a story at the Associated Press:

Biden will announce legislation his first day in office to provide a path to citizenship for millions of immigrants in the United States illegally, according to four people briefed on his plans.

The president-elect campaigned on a path to citizenship for the roughly 11 million people in the U.S. illegally, but it was unclear how quickly he would move while wrestling with the coronavirus pandemic, the economy and other priorities. For advocates, memories were fresh of presidential candidate Barack Obama pledging an immigration bill his first year in office, in 2009, but not tackling the issue until his second term.

Biden’s plan is the polar opposite of Donald Trump, whose successful 2016 presidential campaign rested in part on curbing or stopping illegal immigration.

“This really does represent a historic shift from Trump’s anti-immigrant agenda that recognizes that all of the undocumented immigrants that are currently in the United States should be placed on a path to citizenship,” said Marielena Hincapie, executive director of the National Immigration Law Center, who was briefed on the bill.

If successful, the legislation would be the biggest move toward granting status to people in the country illegally since President Ronald Reagan bestowed amnesty on nearly 3 million people in 1986. Legislative efforts to overhaul immigration policy failed in 2007 and 2013.

[End]

That’s 20 million potential new Democrat voters. If they were potential Republican voters, Democrats would still be as against illegal immigration as Obama, Hillary Clinton, Dianne Feinstein, Harry Reid, Chuck Schumer and all the rest were just a dozen years ago. We’ve all seen those videos – no need to repeat them here.

Police State America Update. – Just as they didn’t really even try to hide their plan to steal the 2020 presidential election, Democrats aren’t even trying to hide their intentions about turning the country into a police state, starting with the nation’s capital, anymore.

DC Mayor Muriel Bowser, whose active encouragement of nightly BLM/Antifa riots in her city last summer and fall has turned DC into the civil unrest capital of America, has insisted on activating no fewer than 26,000 National Guard personnel to protect her party’s sock puppet-elect while he is installed into the presidency on Wednesday. Yesterday, she made known her plan to keep her police state going after the Inauguration is done.

From a story at the Epoch Times:

Washington Mayor Muriel Bowser said Friday that even after the presidential inauguration on Jan. 20 the city will maintain heightened security in light of last week’s Capitol riots.

Bowser made the remarks during a briefing to discuss the city’s and federal agencies’ security plans ahead of and on Inauguration Day, saying that the level of preparation and execution for the event is “unprecedented.”

The nation’s capital on Friday continued to boost security by shutting down access to iconic landmarks and erecting vehicle checkpoints at a security perimeter surrounding central Washington. Officials have said they expect the number of National Guard troops to rise to 25,000 in the city, a number that could still increase even further.

The heightened security posture follows the Jan. 6 breach of the Capitol.

“We cannot allow a recurrence of the chaos and illegal activity that the United States and the world witnessed last week,” Matthew Miller, the head of the Secret Service’s Washington field office, told reporters.

Asked if the extensive security measures around Washington would be reversed after the inauguration, Bowser said, “We are going to go back to a new normal.”

[End]

Ah, the old “new normal” canard. Like the “new normal” Obama gave us of 0% economic growth and permanent American decline. Or Obama’s “new normal” of having the U.S. military actively engaged in 7 different civil wars in North Africa and the Middle East. Or like the “new normal” of having biological males dominate women’s sports. Like Anthony Fauci’s “new normal” of wearing masks and cowering in fear in our living rooms from now on.

Truly, anytime you hear a Democrat politician talking about a new “new normal,” it’s time to run the other way. Muriel Bowser has made her intentions clear, and it is wise to remember that what starts in the nation’s capital ultimately finds its way to all parts of the country.

And hey, look at it from the perspective of the average communist/fascist Democrat mayor: By filling your city with thousands of National Guard troops, you get to defund your own police force while letting the federal taxpayers take up the slack! If you don’t believe that’s part of this thought process, you truly do radically underestimate the depravity level of the average Democrat mayor.

But on the bright side, at least now the Democrats are telling and showing us that walls do work!

Hilariously, as the corrupt news media keeps reminding us, the theme of this inauguration is … wait for it…”America United.”

You just could never make this stuff up.

Also, contemplate this: According to the Democrat Party and the corrupt news media, a wall designed to protect this country’s borders from invasion is baaaaaad, but a wall to prevent ordinary, actual U.S. citizens from petitioning their national government is goooooood. That really, truly is what they believe.

Democrats also think this is good:

Really, they do. Ask any Democrat you know and they will twist themselves into tiny little pretzels of illogic attempting to justify and defend this stuff. It’s truly a remarkable thing to behold, and you can turn it into a great drinking game at parties.

That is all.

The Democrats’ “Biggest Stars” Just Keep Growing Dimmer

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Whoa, whoa, whoa! Ted, you’re not supposed to say that out loud. –  California Rep. Ted Lieu is one of the most execrable members of congress. In addition to the mere fact of being a Democrat, Lieu joins Maxine Waters in combining the worst combination of character traits any human being can possess: Overwhelming arrogance mixed with massive stupidity.

On Wednesday, these traits led Lieu to let one of the many Democrat unspoken cats out of the bag on national television, telling CNN’s vapid host Brianna Keiller the following:

 “I would love if I could have more than five minutes to question witnesses. Unfortunately, I don’t get that opportunity. However, I would love to be able to regulate the content of speech. The First Amendment prevents me from doing so, and that’s simply a function of the First Amendment”.

Yes, friends, in case you weren’t already aware of it, your Democrat friends want to regulate what you can and cannot say, and in fact are already well along the way to doing that in social media and our nation’s college campuses. They aren’t supposed to talk about it publicly, but every once in a while one of their dumber colleagues, like Lieu, slips up.  There you go.

Speaking of Democrats… – If you still doubt that the participants in the “migrant caravan” assembled down in Tijuana would become Democrats if they ever manage to enter the United States, Tuesday should have locked the case up for you.

That was the day that several hundred of them staged two separate “marches” to the U.S. Consulate in that Mexican city, and upon arrival demanded that they either be allowed into the United States, or that they be paid $50,000 each – by American taxpayers – to return to their home country.  I swear I do not make this stuff up.

So, not only do they want to come into America where most of them plan to become wards of the state, they now want to be paid reparations for their stupid decision to leave their home countries. Literally, the perfect Democrat voter mindset.

And now you know why Democrat Party leaders are so desperate to preserve our failed immigration laws.

A real Texas Hispanic challenges Beto Mania. – Figuring I suppose that hey, if a good-looking young white Texas guy pretending to be an Hispanic can run for president with no visible qualifications for the job, why can’t a real Hispanic Texan do the same, San Antonio’s Julian Castro announced on Wednesday he is forming an exploration committee in preparation to run for the presidency in 2020.

He’s a virtual clone of Irish Bob O’Rourke: Young, good-looking, good speaker, looks good on television, great at reciting approved talking points to the media, all the qualifications anyone apparently needs anymore to run for the Democrat nomination. Unlike Irish Bob, though, Castro actually is Hispanic. He also has some apparent actual qualifications for the job, being a former successful mayor of a major city (San Antonio) and having served as HUD Secretary for a few years during the Obama Administration.

Also unlike Irish Bob, though, Castro has not demonstrated the ability to excite the Democrat masses or raise tens of millions of dollars from wealthy leftists in Hollywood and New York. That is, of course, part of what his “exploratory committee” will be exploring in the coming weeks, because Castro, unlike Irish Bob, is not married to a billionaire, and won’t be able to largely self-fund his primary race if need be.

Ocasio Cortez Update!:

Yes, friends, Matthew Yglesias, writing at leftist activist site Vox.com, wants you to agree to change the constitution so that the femme fatal from Queens – who he calls “the biggest star in the Democratic Party” – could run for the presidency in 2020, when she will be all of 30 years of age.

Oh, but it gets better.

Yglesias doesn’t want to just lower the age for running for the presidency, he wants to eliminate all restrictions on the right to run. In Matty’s brave new world, any “registered voter” – which would include all those illegal immigrants who are now legally allowed to register to vote in California – would be able to run for the highest office in the land.

Think about the possibilities here: If Emanuel Macron, with his 18% approval rating, wants to transfer his society-destroying magic from France to the New World, he could just fly to San Francisco, register to vote, and instantly become a leading contender for the Democrat Party nomination, given that Democrats have been trying their best to destroy U.S. society since they elected Woodrow Wilson. Teresa May, fresh off of barely surviving her vote of no confidence after royally screwing up the whole Brexit thing, could do the same thing. Hassan Rouhani, the Iranian President to whom Obama and his fellow Democrats were happy to give $150 billion a few years ago, same deal.

Matty Yglesias, who is in fact a leading voice of American progressivism, says, hell, why not?

Your Democrat Party in action.

Breathtaking.

Donald Trump Just Keeps on Winning for America

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Ok, well, he IS the Boss. – Bruce Springsteen says he doesn’t “see anyone out there at the moment… the man who can beat Trump, or the woman who can beat Trump.” For some reason, the UK Daily Mail thought it was important for us all to know that, so there you go.

Tired of all this Winning yet? – President Donald Trump and Chinese President Xi Jinping agreed during the G-20 Summit over the weekend to a 90-day pause in the ongoing trade war between the two nations. While leftists in and out of our fake news media are poo-pooing the deal as just a return to the status quo prior to President Trump’s implementation of new tariffs, that is not the case at all.

The U.S. side of the deal apparently consists of agreeing to not increase U.S. tariffs on hundreds of billions of Chinese goods for the 90-day period, as Trump had threatened to do on January 1. In return, China agrees to rescind its tariffs on imports of U.S. automobiles, roll back its 40% tariff rates on most U.S. goods to lower levels, agreed to purchase an as-yet unspecified amount of U.S. goods to reduce the trade deficit, and – perhaps most importantly – to “stiffen penalties on sales of the powerful opioid fentanyl into the U.S., a step the White House press secretary described as ‘a wonderful humanitarian gesture.'”

Leftists might not like it, but the markets obviously do: Dow futures are up bigly as I write this Update this morning.  #WINNING.

Speaking of winning… – City officials in Tijuana, Mexico acted to move the estimated 6,000 “migrants” out of the sports facility they had occupied for the last few weeks due to the horrid unsanitary conditions they had created there. In a move that will make it harder for the activists among the crowd to mount further assaults on the border crossings there, city officials moved the “migrants” to an abandoned concert venue more than 10 miles further away from the border.

Griff Jenkins at Fox News – and basically no one else in our fake news media – reported last Friday that fully 1/3rd of the “migrants” were being treated for health issues, including head lice, “tuberculosis, four cases of HIV/AIDS and four separate cases of chickenpox,” according to local health authorities. With the unsanitary conditions growing worse by the day, Mexican officials also feared an outbreak of Hepatitis could take place unless the crowd was moved.

In another related turn of events, newly-inaugurated Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador (AMLO), in one of his first acts in office, “signed an agreement with his counterparts from three Central American countries to establish a development plan to stem the flow of migrants seeking asylum in the U.S.” This compact was entered into at the urging of the Trump Administration.

Here’s why this is important, even if the human misery among these poor people is hard to watch: The move 10 miles further from the border will no doubt encourage more of them to either return home or accept the generous offer of asylum the Mexican government has been offering them for more than a month now. This “caravan” once numbered more than 10,000, so many already have done so, as Mexican officials confirmed early last week.

The other key factor is that, as it becomes clear that the United States of America is not going to allow these “caravans” to just walk right into our country and sign up for welfare benefits, it will become increasingly difficult for the leftist activists forming and funding them to find people in Honduras and other Central American nations willing to participate. The new willingness of the Mexican government to cooperate with U.S. efforts to halt this tide is a crucial development in all of this.

You will never see anyone at CNN, the New York Times, the Washington Post or any of the three dying broadcast networks admit this, but these latest developments demonstrate how extraordinarily effective the Trump Administration’s response to this “migrant caravan” issue has been.

It is such a joy to have a President who just goes to work every day and finds ways to get things done for the American people rather than cowering in fear at the prospect of getting a little bad press. To get to this point on this “caravan” issue, President Trump has had to overcome decades of horrible immigration policy decisions, the cacophony of inaccurate and outright fake reporting coming from the U.S. and international news media, ongoing resistance from some within his own Administration and a seemingly unending series of laughably unconstitutional decisions issued by an array of Obama-appointed federal judges.

Yet still he not only perseveres, but finds ways to prevail. That is #WINNING. Bigly.

 

Paris Burning Watch:

By the way, just so everyone understands, the reason why French Child President Emanuel Macron is raising that nation’s already confiscatory gasoline tax to even higher levels is not, as some have reported, an attempt to improve the government’s budget situation. What it really is is a fool’s effort to meet his country’s emissions reduction goals which France – like every nation on earth other than the United States of America – pledged to meet as a part of the Paris Climate Accords.

France’s emissions have actually increased since Macron committed his country to that socialist wealth redistribution scam, which is an embarrassment to him and his government. But hey, he’s not alone – not one single, solitary signatory country to the Paris Accords has met its pledged goals. Indeed, the country that has cut its emissions more than any nation on earth since that deal was signed is…wait for it…The United States of America.

Some of you probably tire of seeing me make this point, but it’s a key point to make:  This is just one more reason to be thrilled that Donald J. Trump won the 2016 presidential contest.  Because had the Pantsuit Princess prevailed that historic day, the streets of New York and Los Angeles would probably be burning along with those in Paris.

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.

U.S. News Media Falsely Portrays U.S. Officials as Aggressors in Border Invasion

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Yes, we have films confirming hundreds of mostly-military-aged males from a foreign country attempting to invade our Southern border on Sunday, but this is not an invasion.  Signed, Your Fake News Media. –  After several hundred of the thousands of Central American “migrants” camped out in Tijuana, Mexico attempted to invade the U.S. en masse via one of the border crossings into San Diego, your fake news media and its Democrat Party masters condemned…wait for it…President Donald Trump, U.S. law enforcement officials and the U.S. military personnel stationed there. Because of course they did.

Some things in life are just too predictable.

The invaders hurled rocks, large chunks of granite, bottles and used pepper spray to assault law enforcement officials, who finally responded at one point by using tear gas. Democrats and their media agents nodded in sympathy while the invaders were assaulting our law enforcement officials – this was no day to pretend to support “first responders” after all – and then reacted with head-exploding outrage when the Americans actually fought back with non-lethal means.

These are not people you want in the fox hole next to you when the next war comes.

The despicable creeps who run The Hill actually headlined their report on the invasion attempt thusly:

US agents fire tear gas at migrants along border: AP

So, the 80% of The Hill’s readers with short attention spans who only scan headlines went away outraged in the belief that U.S. “agents” just started lobbing tear gas canisters over the border into Mexico for no particular reason. Which, of course, was exactly what The Hill wants its readers to believe.

Even those who actually read a little bit of the article in question left thinking the U.S. actually provoked the incident.  Here are the first three carefully-worded paragraphs:

U.S. border agents began spraying tear gas at migrants attempting to breach a southern border crossing on Sunday, The Associated Press reported.

The Central American migrants were seeking to come through a border crossing between Tijuana and California, according to an AP reporter at the scene.

The incident happened shortly after the U.S. suspended pedestrian crossings at the San Ysidro port of entry, one of the busiest entry points between the U.S. and Mexico.

Note the first four words:  “U.S. border agents began”. Right off the bat, the reader is conditioned to believe that U.S. law enforcement initiated this invasion, which the writer takes great pains to portray as some sort of unplanned, spontaneous “incident”, going so far as to say, in the third paragraph that “The incident happened (yes, dear reader, it just ‘happened’) shortly after the U.S. suspended pedestrian crossings”.

So, The Hill is telling its readers that this was just a spontaneous, unplanned event that “happened” after the U.S. Border Patrol agents shut down the border crossing and started shooting tear gas into an innocent group of “migrants” who we are to presume were just innocently milling around somewhere on the Mexico side of the crossing.  In fact, this was a carefully pre-planned invasion, as even the little old Campaign Update reported to you early yesterday morning, fully 8 hours before the invasion began. It is utterly outrageous that American media outlets reported on this invasion in a way that places the blame on U.S. officials, but then, the Campaign Update again predicted that would be the case early yesterday morning.

Enemies of the people, defined.  That is your fake news media.

Ocasio Cortez Watch:

But hey, it was all ok when Obama did it. – When a group of 100 “migrants” confronted U.S. Border Patrol officials at the same border crossing five years ago, when America’s Worst Mistake was occupying the White House, the Border Patrol responded by – guess what? – using pepper spray to repel them.  Go figure.  As you might imagine, the fake news media paid the incident scant attention, and what little reporting was done related to it was portrayed in a completely different manner.

Here is the headline from the story run by the San Diego Union newspaper on November 25, 2013:

Border Patrol: crowd confronts agents

What?  No use of the word “fire” in the header?  No mention of pepper spray?  No attempt to portray the Border Patrol agents as the aggressors?  What is going on here?

Surely, the first few paragraphs of this story would paint U.S. officials as the aggressors, right?  Well, let’s see:

A group of about 100 people trying to illegally cross the border Sunday near the San Ysidro port of entry threw rocks and bottles at U.S. Border Patrol agents, who responded by using pepper spray and other means to force the crowd back into Mexico, federal officials said.

The incident has raised concerns among advocates on both sides of the immigration debate, as well as Border Patrol representatives.

Immigrant-rights groups in San Diego said they didn’t know beforehand about the plan to rush the border, and they worry that desperation is driving homeless deportees to make a bold bid to rejoin their families in the United States.

“A group of about 100 people…threw rocks and bottles at U.S. Border Patrol agents” the story begins, clearly and correctly portraying the invaders as the aggressors. The next phrase, “who responded by using pepper spray and other means” clearly and correctly portrays the U.S. Border Patrol as the party being attacked, and responding with appropriate means to protect themselves.

Why the difference in reporting? Isn’t the answer obvious? When the media is fake, and it shares pre-planned talking points with one political party, the nature of the reporting related to eerily-similar invasions will depend entirely upon which party controls the White House.

Again, all of which just proves exactly how clear-eyed President Trump really is when he tags the fake news media as the Enemies of the People.

 

That is all.

Another Obama Judge, Another Illegal Ruling

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

The media keeps hyping, and Mueller just keeps winding it down. –  The White House announced yesterday that President Donald Trump (I never tire of typing those three glorious words) has returned his answers to the questions that had been submitted to him by Special Counsel Robert Mueller. Speaking with Jonathan Swain at Axios, presidential attorney Rudy Giuliani basically said he thinks this will be the extent of the President’s direct interactions with Mueller and his merry, diminishing band of Clinton/Obama hacks.

Guiliani said he thinks that, while it is “possible” that Mueller might try to issue a subpoena to compel verbal testimony by President Trump, that process would “consume months” and end up with Mueller losing the battle.  He also said that, “I don’t think they have any evidence of collusion of any kind. I think their obstruction case, as a legal matter, doesn’t exist.”

The next steps here are, like everything else related to the Special Counsel’s fake “investigation”, unclear and open simply to the whims of Mr. Mueller. If he follows the path he has obviously been embarked upon since July, which has been a slow winding down of his staff and the pace of his investigation, he will take the President’s answers, roll them into a final report, and submit that report within the next few months while farming out any remaining prosecutable cases he thinks he has to the Justice Department.

Or he might decide to continue to keep his Spanish Inquisition-style pursuits of fringe players like reporter Jerome Corsi and Roger Stone alive so he and his evil minions can keep fleecing the government out of millions of dollars for several more months. Either way, it’s more obvious today than ever that, where the President is concerned, he is holding a big bag of nothing.

It is also obvious that, despite all the media wailing to the contrary, President Trump is more than happy to let Mueller continue twisting in the wind and has no intention of firing him. Matt Whitaker was not appointed to be acting Attorney General to take Mueller out, but he is now exercising some real oversight on the conduct of the investigation, which will only serve to incentivize Mueller to complete his work and move along.

The most likely scenario is that the Mueller investigation ends not with the bang of an indicted president, but with the soft thud of a few process-crime guilty pleas and indictments of Russian ham sandwiches that will never be eaten. It’s long past time for Mueller to put up or shut up.

Ocasio Cortez Watch:

To no one’s surprise, an Obama-appointed left-wing activist judge, Jon Tigar, ruled yesterday that President Trump has no authority to deny asylum to anyone who does not conform to the legal process of presenting themselves at a formal port of entry. This ruling is absurd and will no doubt be overturned, but in the meantime the Administration must figure out what to do about the invading hordes at our Southern border.

Thousands are already there, and another “caravan” of more than 10,000 – which is being studiously ignored by our fake news media – is making its way up through Mexico as we speak. Word is that more caravans are already being formed up in Honduras in anticipation that U.S. judges appointed by Obama will continue thwarting Trump Administration efforts to contain the flood.

This is an invasion, plain and simple. It is well-funded, high-organized and managed by leftist activist groups funded by George Soros and other wealthy globalists. It is an assault on U.S. sovereignty designed to turn our country into just another third-world shithole, to use a phrase that others have coined.

Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen, concerned that the thousand of immigrants already occupying the streets of Tijuana are already causing major problems and infiltrated with as many as 500 violent gang members, issued the following tweet mid-day yesterday:

This is an invasion. That’s what it is. There is no more appropriate word with which to describe it. President Trump, as commander in chief, has as his highest sworn duty the obligation to protect our nation’s borders from invasion.

There is a strong case to be made that the President and his administration should simply ignore Judge Tygar’s order under a declaration of a national emergency. Indeed, given that Trump’s executive order denying asylum to those who enter the country illegally was issued as a national security directive, it is not even subject to judicial review. Tigar clearly overstepped his bounds, and he also ignored the fact that the man who appointed him, Barack Obama, changed immigration law via an executive order when he issued his own order protecting the “Dreamers” from deportation.

Would Democrats and the fake news media go nuts and lambast President Trump for making such a move? Sure, they would. So it would be just like any other day for this President. So what?

For its part, the White House issued the following statement in response to Tigar’s ruling:

“This decision will open the floodgates, inviting countless illegal aliens to pour into our country on the American taxpayer’s dime,” the statement continued. “This temporary injunction is yet another example of activist judges imposing their open border policy preferences, which are rejected by the overwhelming majority of the American people, and interfering with the executive branch’s authority to administer the immigration system in a manner that ensures the Nation’s safety, security, and the rule of law.”

“We will take all necessary action to defend the executive branch’s lawful response to the crisis at our southern border.”

Meanwhile, during his latest impromptu press availability held before he boarded Marine One, the President had this to say:

“People should not be allowed to immediately run to this very friendly circuit and file their case — and you people know better than anybody what is happening is a disgrace, in my opinion, it is a disgrace what happens with the 9th Circuit. We will win that case in the Supreme Court of the United States,” Trump said.

They’d better hurry.

That is all.

The Migrant Caravan Becomes Tijuana’s Problem

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Don’t go away mad, Brenda Snipes, just…well, you know the rest. –  In what is a loss from which the dimwitted people of Broward County who kept re-electing her will never recover, Supervisor of Elections Brenda Snipes submitted her formal resignation on Sunday. It is hard to understand what could have possibly motivated this action on Snipes’s part, given her stellar reputation and the fact that she had performed so well in her job for so many years.

Hah, hahahahahaha!!!  Ok, I’m kidding.  Seriously, is there anyone in America who needed firing more urgently than Brenda Snipes? I can’t think of a single person, other than perhaps the genius over at ABC who thought it was a great idea to do a reboot of “Roseanne” without Roseanne. There’s a person who needs firing. But other than him, it’s Brenda Snipes. No question.

Snipes, who is 75, expressed a desire to “spend more time with her family,” which is code for she is going to flee Broward County as quickly as possible in order to say one step ahead of the Florida Department of Law Enforcement, which has begun an investigation into all of her machinations related to this election. The grandkids aren’t going to be seeing a whole lot of MeeMaw in the near future.

Oh, hey, and execrable Democrat Senator Bill Nelson finally, at long last conceded his loss to Republican Rick Scott. With Snipes fleeing the coop, any chance of “finding” the additional 13,000 “votes” Nelson would have needed to end up winning fled with her. Nelson, who has apparently had more work done than Cher, will now have plenty of time to go get more hair plugs and another round of plastic surgery to help keep that Batman-villain smile pasted on his face.

So, the latest in a long line of efforts by Florida Democrats to steal an election is over, the main culprit is gone, and the doofuses in Broward County will have to elect another crook to man the position. Because that’s what the Democrats in South Florida do.

Where have all the people gone? – Where the NFL is concerned, they’ve decided to spend their money on more patriotic pursuits.

After two seasons and change of players and even cheerleaders disrespecting the national anthem and flag, combined with a decidedly crappy on-the-field product, the National Football League is experiencing an attendance crisis. Note I did not say “ticket sales” crisis, because, thanks to myriad corporate sponsorships, the tickets are mostly all sold well in advance.

No, the growing problem for the NFL is that fewer and fewer fans are using those tickets, as evidenced by the half-empty stadiums all over the country yesterday. Unlike football at the collegiate and other levels of the game, where almost all tickets are purchased and used by individuals, the lack of fan attendance is not an end-game for the NFL, but a preview of things to come if the League doesn’t improve its product. Because as the tickets lose their fan appeal luster, the corporate sponsors will begin to look for other, more productive venues at which to target their sponsorship dollars.

um, those are “f’s,” Mr. President. – See if you can spot the misspelling in this tweet from President Donald Trump:

We’ll just assume that was a totally innocent typo and move along.

Speaking of presidential tweets, about an hour after posting that little gem, the President had this to say about the Honduran “migrants” down in Tijuana:

Our fake news media now estimates that roughly 2,400 of these “migrants” have arrived in the Mexican border city of Tijuana, where most of them will apply for asylum in the U.S. at that city’s official port of entry. The problem for Tijuana and Mexico is that there is a long line of previous applicants ahead of them, and the wait for a formal hearing will be months down the road.

So, yeah, the city is ill-prepared to handle such a massive invasion from the South, which is why the Mexican government should have ordered its military personnel to stop the fake caravan at its southern border. Sensing a crisis building as a crowd of 2,400 overwhelmingly military-aged males set up a tent city in one their city’s major parks, hundreds of Tijuana residents staged a protest on Sunday, one that ultimately turned into a minor riot that had to be broken up by local police.

Some of the protesters carried signs reading “No Caravan, No Invasion!”.  This caused heads to explode all over CNN headquarters as all the fake journalists there scrambled to invent a narrative in which all of these Mexican citizens are racists.

It’s important to remember here – and President Trump does – that virtually none of these “migrants” are legitimate applicants for U.S. asylum. In fact, given that Mexico has already offered them asylum in that country, none of their applications will be legitimate under U.S. and international law.

These people are economic refugees – they openly admit to the few journalists who bother to ask that they want to enter the U.S. to find work and take advantage of our social welfare system. While Honduras does have gang problems, so do Chicago and Los Angeles and pretty much every other Democrat-run city in the United States. While we as Americans can feel empathy for these people and sad about their country’s lousy economic environment, we as a country have an absolute right to determine who does and does not get to enter our country. This particular mass of thousands who so openly wish to abuse our system and flout our laws does not deserve entry.

If the government of Mexico wishes to solve Tijuana’s problem, it should give these “migrants” one last chance to accept its generous offer of asylum there and put anyone who declines on the next train back to its Southern border. It’s time to stop the media-generated pretense that these scofflaws are well-meaning people, because they aren’t.

If you want to know why you should harden your heart a little bit and adamantly oppose allowing these people into our country, here is the best reason:

That’s why: Because every person who invades our country by illegal means makes it harder for those who, like Billy Idol, choose to immigrate to our country the right way.

Build the wall.

That is all.

The Week in Review: No Good Deed By Donald Trump Goes Unpunished

The Campaign Update Week in Review

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

President Donald Trump was in both Montana and Florida for rallies on Saturday.  Think about that for a minute:  He’s based in Washington, D.C.  He gets up in the morning, gets his daily security briefing, then hops on Marine One – after chatting with the hostile fake news media for a little bit – which takes him to Joint Base Andrews.

There, he boards Air Force One for the 5-hour flight out to Belgrade, Montana.  He spends an hour speaking to an audience of thousands of Montanans – with thousands more watching on large video screens outside the venue – then he hops back on Air Force One for the 2,000 mile, 5-hour flight down to Pensacola, Florida.

There, he again spends an hour speaking to thousands of Floridians, with a huge crowd of thousands more gathered outside, and then hops back on Air Force One for the 1-hour flight to his resort at Mar-a-Lago.  Presumably, he got some sleep there.

This is a 72 year-old man.  By the way, this is a 72 year-old man who works for free.  He donates his presidential salary every quarter to a different worthy cause, an act of generosity that goes unreported by our fake news media.

While Democrats, their agents in the fake news media and even many of his Republican colleagues bitch and moan about him spending too much time at Mar-a-Lago and the other properties he owns on weekends, the fact of the matter is that most normal men his age and wealth status would be spending all of their time playing golf while the kids take over the family business.  Instead, Donald Trump is spending his time presiding over a nation experiencing a booming economy and relative peace and stability in the world.

For delivering all of that, he has been rewarded with 92% negative fake media coverage, hostile and violent rhetoric coming from all corners of pop culture and the education establishment, unending assassination threats from entertainers and social media, and a special counsel investigation that has now lingered on for 17 months.

Our nation has an odd way of rewarding all this WINNING.

Trump in Montana:  Purple mountains majesties above the fruited plain!

 

 

Let’s go to the Week in Review:

  • It was the week that one of Brett Kavanaugh’s Democrat-recruited accusers admitted not only that she lied to the Senate Judiciary Committee, but that she has in fact never even met Justice Kavanaugh.  If you’re surprised by this, you haven’t been paying attention.
  • It was the week that leftist lawyers for a dozen “migrants” who have never set foot in the United States of America were allowed to file a lawsuit in federal court against a sitting President.  Because, rights, or something.
  • It was the week that a campaign staffer for Democrat Andrew Gillum was arrested for throwing her milk at a group of college Republicans.  Because, hey, this is what the media has empowered her to do.
  • It was the week that multiple staffers for Irish Bob O’Rourke were caught on video illegally using campaign funds to send money to the “migrant caravan” in Mexico, and the Texas news media shamed itself by parrotting the O’Rourke campaign’s talking points and ignoring the video evidence.  Again, if this surprises you, you haven’t been paying attention.
  • It was the week the fake news media completely forgot about that Khashoggi guy, and so did every other American.
  • It was the week that the Democrats and their media agents mounted a coordinated effort to define any effort to criticize the despicable, anti-American, anti-Israel George Soros as “anti-Semitic” hate speech.  Holy crap.
  • It was the week that Democrat Supreme Court Justice Sonya Sotomayor said in one breath that she often would have used a baseball bat on the late Antonin Scalia if she had had one handy, but in the next breath said that “differences don’t stand, necessarily, on ill will.”  I swear I don’t make this stuff up.
  • It was the week this happened:

*sigh*

  • It was the week a former high-profile campaign worker for Barack Hussein Obama was arrested for spraying anti-Semitic graffiti and attempting to burn down a Jewish Synagogue, and the fake news media studiously ignored his connection to the former President:

  • It was the week garbage human being Alec Baldwin got arrested, yet again:

  • It was the week President Trump re-instituted all previous sanctions on Iran and added a few more.  This came after two days of fake media reports that his Administration was backing off of most of them.  Fake news, defined.
  • It was the week that Morning Joe guest pinhead Donny Deutsch actually said that Donald Trump was elected to the presidency because “I don’t think we were ready for a black president.” Quick:  Someone tell Donny that we actually elected a black president, TWICE.  My goodness.
  • It was the week that this happened:

Are there really real, actual Texans who care what John Brennan thinks about our senate race?  Really???
  • It was the week that CNN fake host Don Lemon told America – or, well, the tiny little sliver of leftist America that still watches CNN – that our biggest terror threat is “white men,” and CNN’s management endorsed his statement.  Again, if this surprised you, you need to pay closer attention.
  • It was the week we discovered that MSNBC’s Katy Tur is, um, geographically-challenged:

  • It was the week that CNN morning host Alyisin Camerota’s tiny little brain exploded when a guest didn’t follow the narrative:

  • It was the week that fake pollsters, on the same day in Arizona, gave us results that said Democrat Kyrsten Sinema was leading by 4 points and Republican Martha McSally was leading by 7.  And some of you wonder why I have a negative view of our nation’s polling industry.
  • It was the week that the editorial board at the Houston Chronicle beclowned itself by endorsing Irish Bob O’Rourke in his race against Ted Cruz because O’Rourke plays well with others.  *sigh*
  • It was the week that this happened:

There was so much more, but I’m running out of energy here.  After all, I’m not a 72 year-old guy who works for free.
That is all.

Are You Ready For “Beto 2020”? You Should Be.

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Fake Beto supports the fake “migrant caravan” with real campaign funds. –  Project Veritas released a new video overnight that shows staffers for Irish Bob O’Rourke illegally using campaign funds to pay for transportation and supplies for the fake “migrant caravan” that is slowly making its way up through Mexico.

Here are a few quotes from staffers that appear in the video:

  • “I just hope nobody that’s the wrong person finds out about this,” says one staffer about sending supplies to the caravan members.
  • “It’s f***ing happening.” exclaims a staffer when discussing the use of Pre-Paid Cards for Honduran Alien Supplies.
  • “Don’t ever repeat this…” Campaign Staffers explain how to hide campaign expenditures for aliens
  • If you get caught in some sort of violation that’s like a $50,000 fine,” “For me I can just ignore the rules and I’m like f**k it.”
  • Transporting Aliens to “airports… bus stations,” “None of this is like sh*t there is a rulebook for”

This is your Democrat Mob in action, folks.  Expect Irish Bob to claim he barely knows these staffers and had no knowledge of their illegal activities today.  Then he’ll attack Project Veritas, because that’s the standard Democrat playbook in these situations.

Vote Republican.  It’s the easiest choice you ever had.

Speaking of Irish Bob…are you ready for “Beto 2020”? – Everyone does know Irish Bob is planning to run for the presidency, right?  He’s raised $80 million in this campaign, and is still raising more today.  Do you think he’s really spending it all on this senate race that he was always destined to lose? Please.

Here’s what we’re going to find out a few weeks after the election has come and gone: He’s going to have $20 million or more still sitting in the bank, which will conveniently serve as a very nice little nest egg to help kick off a run for the 2020 Democrat nomination.  Think I’m crazy?  Just watch.

Consider this: This guy has been raking in the money from demented Democrat donors all over the country for a year now. You don’t think the big money people have been telling him he has national potential and urging him to give it a shot? What do you think all those fawning “he’s just like a Kennedy!” profiles in national leftwing publications like the New York Times and Washington Post have been all about?

There’s this perception that he’s too young, mainly because most people don’t realize that he’s only one year younger than his opponent, Ted Cruz.  Cruz was plenty old enough to make a very strong run in 2016, coming in second out of a field of seventeen candidates.

Also, consider the playing field Irish Bob would be facing: It’s a lineup of crazy old coots like the Pantsuit Princess, the Commie, Crazy Uncle Joe and Fauxcahontas, combined with already-damaged and horrifically unqualified young up-and-coming “stars” like Spartacus Booker and Kamala “The Interrupter” Harris. Toss in the Creepy Porn Lawyer for good measure, and you have a collection of miscreants unlike any political party has ever managed to put together in American history.  Slotted in amongst that field, a young-ish congressman from Texas who can ride a skateboard and play guitar might look pretty appealing to the ignorant Democrat voter base.

So, don’t think that Irish Bob is going to just ride off on his skateboard into the sunset after he gets his butt kicked next Tuesday. He’s going to be a big thing in Democrat national politics for some time to come.

The fake “migrant caravan” jumps the shark. – A dozen of the thousands of “migrants” being paid by leftwing interests like the O’Rourke campaign to walk up through Mexico actually filed a lawsuit in federal court against President Trump on Thursday.

Ok, well, the “migrants” themselves didn’t file the suit – it was actually filed by a bunch of leftist lawyers on their behalf.  You have to go all the way down to the 11th paragraph in the story filed at the Fox News website to find that little fact out – it probably won’t be mentioned in stories filed by CNN and the New York Times.

Anyway, this bunch of leftist lawyers calls themselves “Nexus Derechos Humanos (Human Rights) Attorneys Inc.”, and their argument is predictably tiresome:

“Federal law enables migrants to apply for asylum in the United States. President Trump and his administration have used ‘increased enforcement,’ like separating families and lengthening detention to violate migrant rights,” Mike Donovan, president of Nexus Services, said in the release.

To be clear, President Trump has to this point actually take no action whatsoever targeting this fake “caravan”, other than to issue a bunch of threats and sending troops to the border in preparation for their arrival.  So the lawsuit is at this point purely speculative in nature, and it would be absurd for any real judge to even agree to hear it.  But the lawyers will no doubt be able to find an Obama appointee to do their dirty work.

To the extent ordinary Americans out here in Flyover Country learn about this action, it will only serve to infuriate them and turn them even more against this fake “caravan” than they already have been.  It’s just another stupid, abusive action taken by anti-American leftists that will end up increasing GOP turnout in this election.

Bottom line:  We are now to the point of absurdity in our judicial system that a group of foreign nationals who are somewhere between 800 and 1000 miles away from arriving at our southern border and may never actually arrive there, are suing the President of the United States over “abuses” of our idiotic immigration laws that may or may not ever take place.  Mind you, these are people who have already violated international law by refusing to accept the asylum that has already been generously offered to them by the first foreign country they entered, Mexico.

But nevermind the law – these are leftist-funded crisis actors we’re talking about here, so they get to abuse the U.S. court system as they please.  Because, America.

*sigh*

The Week in Review: No “Blue Wave” Coming

The Campaign Update Week in Review

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

There is no “Blue Wave” coming, anywhere in America.  No Dodger Blue, no Dallas Cowboys Blue, no Democrat Blue, no blue wave of any kind.  Trust me, folks, it ain’t happening, and it never was.

My goodness.  As I sit here typing this Week in Review this morning, Fox News is interviewing one of the guys in the fake “migrant caravan” down in Mexico.  This guy is an admitted convicted felon, for the crime of attempted murder, and he’s already been deported once.  He’s embedded with this obviously-staged political stunt group, and is telling Fox he expects to apply for a “pardon” when he gets back to America.

*sigh*

What do you even say about that?  If you’re a Democrat, I suppose you say hey, that guy right there is a potential future voter so we need to get his butt back into the good ol’ U.S.A.!  Because that is the essence of Democrat political thought in 2018.

Donald Trump is a man who has Jewish grandchildren.  His son-in-law, Jared Kushner, is a Jewish man and his daughter Ivanka converted to the Jewish faith when the two were married.  Yet today, on all the Sunday morning talk shows, you are going to hear every Democrat talking head blame President Trump for the atrocity that was committed by a deranged, Trump-hating anti-Semite at a synagogue in Pittsburgh, where a Jewish family was celebrating a bris for their child.

Eleven people died there, and four law enforcement officers were injured before the this latest lunatic was finally subdued and taken into custody. It is an unimaginable tragedy, one to which any normal person’s natural reaction is to mourn the loss of precious lives and praise the work of the first responders in Pittsburgh’s law enforcement community.

But not to Democrats.  Democrats’ knee-jerk reaction is to point fingers of blame at political enemies and anyone else they hate – which is an awful lot of people – and rail about the need to take away everyone’s guns.  Because they’re Democrats.  That’s what they do.

With this latest nutjob, the Democrats and their fake media toadies have a real problem.  They’ve spent the last three-plus years pushing their “Trump is Hitler” narrative, yet this guy is a self-described Nazi who hates Trump because “he is controlled by the Jews.”  Ooops.  That just won’t sell well on “Meet the Press” with Chuck Todd or “Sunday Morning” with George Clintonopoulous, so they’re all busily getting their joint talking points in order as I write this piece this morning.

The new narrative will be rolled out later today, and we will all marvel at its lack of any factual merit whatsoever.  So, it’ll be just like all the other narratives the Democrats/fake media have rolled out this week.

Let’s go to the Week in Review:

It was the week that the “President Trump is responsible for the Saudis butchering this Khashoggi guy” narrative crashed and burned because most Americans understand that the Saudi government does worse than that to its citizens on pretty much a daily basis and no one at CNN or the New York Times cares.

It was the week that the obviously-staged “feel sorry for the fake migrant caravan, you heartless Americans” narrative failed because, to most Americans, a growing group of 7,000 people, the vast majority of whom appear to be military-aged males, looks suspiciously like an invasion.

It was the week that the “caravan migrants”, who our fake news media keeps telling us are just a bunch of poor, down-trodden “asylum seekers” turned down an offer of absolute asylum, including healthcare, housing, jobs and food, when it was offered to them by the government of Mexico. Of course they did, because they’re not being paid to stop in Mexico – they’re being paid to get to the American border.

It was the week that a nut in Florida was arrested for “mailing” “bombs” to a bunch of high-profile Democrats, and the fake news media jumped for joy when they found out the guy was apparently, at least, a fan of President Trump.  The only problem with this narrative is that some of the “bombs” weren’t mailed at all, given that the packaging they were supposedly sent in contained no postmarks, and that they weren’t “bombs” at all.  Other than that, great story, guys.  Trust me, there is something more here that has yet to be revealed.

It was the week that the news media swore to us that a mail-bombing nutjob who is half-Filipino and half-Seminole Indian is “white.”  Because that would best fit the media’s narrative, so he must be.

It was the week that soul-crushing dread began to creep into the hearts of leading Democrats (that’s assuming that ghouls like Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer actually have hearts and souls) as early voting numbers from key states like Florida, Arizona, Nevada, Indiana, Tennessee and Texas began coming in unexpectedly (to the Democrats, anyway) favoring the GOP.  So much for the polls.

It was the week that Dodgers Manager Dave Roberts made no less than five indefensible pitching moves in a span of just 2 innings of a single World Series game, marking the 2nd straight year that Roberts had changed the entire direction of a World Series against his own team with horrible pitching decisions.  Roberts was so indescribably awful on Saturday night that he became the first manager in Major League Baseball history to be panned by a President of the United States on social media:

It’s almost enough to make you want to become a Giants fan.  But not quite.  Nothing is ever bad enough for that.

It was the week that America’s Biggest Mistake, Barack Hussein Obama, said the following:  “It shouldn’t be Democratic or Republican to say you don’t try to punish political opponents. Or threaten the freedom of the press just because you don’t like what they say.”  This is the very same Barack Hussein Obama who famously had his FBI bug the computers and illegally search the homes of journalists who were critical of him, and sicced his IRS on opposition political groups.  The very same guy.

It was the week that we found out that NBC had evidence in-hand that would have cleared Brett Kavanaugh from the outrageous “gang-rape” charges while his confirmation process was still ongoing, but decided not to report on said evidence.

It was the week that Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley issued not one, but two criminal referral letters to the Justice Department targeting the Creepy Porn Lawyer and his scurrilous nutjob client, Julie Swetnick.

It was the week that Chris Wallace took that preening peacock Shepard Smith to the woodshed, and it was glorious:

It was the week that overrated and overpaid Megyn Kelly finally got canned by the woman-abusing thugs who run NBC. No one should spend a moment of time feeling sorry for anyone on either side of this particular dust up.

Finally, it was the week that a leader in the Texas Democratic Party was arrested for running a voter fraud ring, and nobody in Texas or anywhere else was surprised in any way, shape or form.  Because that’s what Democrats do.

It was quite a week, a week in which the Democrat/media desperation became so palpable you could cut it with a knife.  There is no “blue wave” coming, and there never was.

That is all.

Refugees From Central America or From California – Pick Your Poison

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Well, it took about a year longer than I figured it would, but hey, NBC has very low standards for their on-air talent. – Megyn Kelly appears to have been canned by NBC on Thursday for having violated the rules of political correctness on her extremely low-rated morning program on Tuesday.  The fake news network had been casting around for a good reason to eat the remaining tens of millions left on Kelly’s hilariously-unjustified $69 milllion contract, and she finally provided them with a good enough excuse.

As a refugee from Fox News, and an imperious and obnoxious one at that, Kelly was roundly detested by basically everyone she came into contact with at NBC, and thus had no internal support base to defend her when she made her remarks on Tuesday, which basically amounted to “it was ok for a white kid to dress up as Dianna Ross for Halloween when I was a kid.”

To be clear, not it wasn’t.  Megyn Kelly was a kid in the Albany area of New York in the 1970s and 1980s, and no, it was not ok in the 1980s to put black-face makeup on your white kid and dress them up in an afro and sparkly dress and try to pass her off as Dianna Ross.  That stuff all went out the window in the late 1960s, along with re-runs of Amos ‘n Andy and Jim Crow laws.

Kelly issued a tearful on-air apology on her Wednesday show, which would have been enough for any of the other on-air “talent” at NBC, but could never be enough for someone known to harbor – gasp! – conservative points of view.  Plus, her show was a disaster from day one, so NBC grabbed the excuse to get her off the air and out of its hair.

I do not feel even a little bit of sympathy for Kelly, who is one of the most over-rated people I’ve ever observed in any profession.  But everyone should understand that her treatment by NBC right now is completely biased and unfair.  If NBC wanted to simply fire her because her program is a dumpster fire, that would be totally justified, because that is absolutely the case.  But firing her for making an admittedly stupid on-air comment for which literally no one else at NBC would be fired is wrong.

The truth is that Kelly’s biggest mistake – her “original sin” in NBC’s eyes – was not becoming a wild-eyed leftist on-air when she moved to NBC so she would fit in with all the other on-air talent.  That’s what Alisyn Camerota did when she moved from Fox News to CNN, and she is completely ensconced as the permanent host of a morning show over there that no one watches.  Camerota could say exactly what Kelly said and no one would blink an eye.  Why?  Because she is always mindlessly leftwing in her views, always adheres strictly to the daily DNC talking points, and thus no one at CNN would ever think of her ever intentionally being politically incorrect.

Dang, have I really just written 550 words about Megyn Kelly?  Enough.  Let’s move on.

Speaking of refugees, isn’t it amazing how the fake news media has stopped speaking of them? – Seriously, the obviously-staged “migrant caravan” that had been almost the sole focus of our fake news media for 10 solid days suddenly disappeared from our TV screens entirely yesterday in favor of the incredible un-explosive pipe bomb story.  Funny how that happens, huh?

Well, the “caravan” is still there, still heading up the western side of Mexico, the “refugees” still getting coached about what to say by their Democrat organizers for when they arrive at the U.S. border.  The current size of the caravan is variously estimated to be 3,600 by the Mexican government, 7,000 or 14,000, depending on which fake news media source you wish to believe.  In fact, the Mexican government claimed yesterday that something around 1,500 of the “refugees” who are supposedly fleeing “gangs” in their home country of Honduras have sought and been granted asylum in the gang-dominated failed state of Mexico.  Go figure.

We’re almost two weeks into this story and we have yet to see one single, solitary Democrat express the desire to protect our nation’s sovereign right to decide who we allow to come into our country.  Not one.  Think about that:  I just showed you a video in Monday’s Update of Barack Hussein Obama aggressively expressing his view in 2005 that the U.S. must control illegal immigration.  That’s just 13 years ago, and you can go out to YouTube and see similar videos of luminaries like Harry Reid, Hillary Clinton, Bill Clinton, Dianne Feinstein and Chuck Schumer saying the same things.

That was, of course, before the elevation of Obama to the presidency and the reorganization of the entire Democrat Party on Saul Alinsky Rules for Radicals principles.  Today, instead of pretending to be the protectors of working class Americans, the Democrats favor opening up our borders completely in order to create as much societal chaos as possible and in the belief that these millions of people fleeing failed socialist states will come into America and continue favoring the same failed socialist policies because that is all they know.  They’re probably right, and if they can ever succeed in getting all these millions of illegal aliens voting rights, the Democrats could once again become our dominant political party and implement their long-desired socialist nirvana that would completely destroy America as we know it.

Hell, they’re already making progress in that regard just from all the Californian refugees that have relocated to other states in the past 20 years.  Look around the country right now and you see all these tight races in states like Montana, Nevada, Arizona and Colorado, states that had been reliably “red” states that are now on the verge of turning completely blue.  They also happen to be states that have had large influxes of citizens fleeing the socialist nirvana of California in recent years.

In their political behavior, Californians are no different from these Central American refugees:  They flee their home state due to the high taxes and brutal regulations implemented by the socialist government there which have made it incredibly hard for middle class Americans to make a living, own a home and live a semi-free life.  But, when they arrive in their new state, they just keep on voting for the same Democrat types who created all the governmental chaos that led them to flee in the first place.

That is how you get a down-the-line leftwinger like Montana’s Jon Tester, one of Chuck Schumer’s most reliable votes, positioned to possibly win re-election against a pretty strong Republican candidate.  It’s how you get to the point where the voters in Colorado are about to slit their own economic wrists by passing a ballot initiative that would basically outlaw drilling for incredibly abundant oil and gas reserves there.  It’s how you get a limp-wristed jerk like Jeff Flake representing Arizona, and a neck-and-neck race between a strong GOP candidate who is a true American hero and a radical leftist Democrat who has no real qualifications for the job to take Flake’s place.

Thus, while Democrats everywhere are anxious as they can be to let as many illegals as they possibly can from Central America and all other failed socialist states into our country, the reality is that they are already beginning to achieve their goals simply by continuing to destroy California’s middle class and forcing it to move to other states.  It’s one of the great ironies of our time.

Maybe it is time for leaders in these other states to force anyone moving to their state from California to spend time in some sort of re-education facility before joining the general population.  These people obviously need some de-programming to get the California mindset out of them so that they can become actual productive members of society again.  Call it a matter of self-preservation.

The Democrat Mob is Preparing to Challenge this Election

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Well, of course he is. – Are you ready for Judge Jerry?  Well, NBC doesn’t care if you are or aren’t – you’re probably going to get him anyway.  Yes, friends, The Wrap is reporting this morning that septuagenarian Jerry Springer is working on a deal with NBCUniversal to star in a “daytime courtroom show” that could begin airing in 2019.  Because network TV just hasn’t cheapened the nation’s courtroom system quite enough already. I swear I don’t make this stuff up. Who could?

If you don’t know who Allie Beth Stuckey is yet… – Allow me to introduce her to you.  She’s made her own version of what a Democrat campaign ad would look like if a Democrat candidate were actually being honest about their beliefs and what they plan to do if elected.  It is three minutes of pure greatness:

If you didn’t get about 38 laughs out of that one, you might be brain dead.  Or you’re a Democrat.

Wait, is this a trick question? – How old does a correspondent for CBS’s “60 Minutes” have to be in order to be described as “approaching retirement age?” Let’s go back through a little history:

Mike Wallace worked there until he was well into his late ’80s.

Harry Reasoner did the same.

Leslie Stahl has been at the network since I was a sophomore in high school. Richard Nixon was president when I was a sophomore in high school.

Dan Rather was there until he had be-clowned himself so many times that not even CBS could pretend he as a real “journalist” anymore.

Morley Safer appeared to have passed away in place about 8 years before he was finally removed from the show’s lineup, but nobody noticed.

I bring all this up because the New York Post has a report this morning about the chaos that is reigning at network TV’s longest-running fake news program.  Seems the geriatric natives are getting a little restless over the prospect of having to work for their likely new boss, who will take over after former boss Jeff Fager had to quit over allegations of – you guessed it – sexual abuse and harassment.

The new likely boss, Susan Zirinsky, is a veritable spring chicken in “60 Minutes” world at just age 66. She’s been the boss over at the network’s “48 Hours” program for years, and it seems she must have developed quite the reputation over there, and the veteran “60 Minutes” bunch wants no part of working for her.

Hilariously, one of the Post’s inside sources “noted that at least one was ‘approaching retirement age’ and might have less to lose by threatening resignation.”  That no doubt has all the correspondents at “60 Minutes” looking at one another this morning and saying “wait – there’s a retirement age?”

Speaking of really old reporters who never seem to retire… – I missed this one on Monday, but Carl Bernstein, the former Washington Post reporter who hasn’t done anything worth noting since Watergate, said this in an appearance on CNN (because CNN is the only outlet fake enough to have him on anymore) on Sunday:

“I talked to people … in touch with the White House on Friday who believe that, if the congressional midterms are very close and the Democrats were to win by five or seven seats, that Trump is already talking about how to throw legal challenges into the courts, sow confusion, declare a victory actually, and say that the election’s been illegitimate.”

First, I laughed out loud at how he described his “sources” here – as “people…in touch with the White House.”  What that means is that, if he actually talked to anyone about this, which is doubtful, he has to describe them in this way because his “sources” are not in the White House and are so far removed from it that he can’t describe them even as “insiders” or “people with direct knowledge” of what he’s talking about.  In fact, this could literally describe anyone who has ever made a phone call to someone who works at the White House and left a voice mail. Think about it.

Anyway, the likely truth here is that Bernstein didn’t really talk to anyone other than his handlers within the Democrat Party who wanted him to put this nonsense out into the public domain. Bernstein is just the first of what will no doubt become many Democrat media shills spreading this rumor of the White House preparing to challenge the election as we approach November 6.

Why? Because this is exactly what the Democrats are planning to do should they fail to win a majority in the House of Representatives. This is the classic Saul Alinsky “projection” tactic, in which you accuse your opposition of doing exactly what you are doing or, in this case, plan to do.

This is exactly the same as in 2016, when, in the weeks leading up to the election, Democrats and their media shills berated Donald Trump for making a statement indicating that he might challenge the election if it appeared as if massive voter fraud had taken place.  Remember how they all told us day after day that even saying such a thing was terribly unpatriotic, even un-American? But then Trump won, and the Democrats have spent the last 23 months refusing to accept the election’s results.

Make no mistake about it: This is exactly what the Democrats plan to do again if they fall a few seats short of securing a majority in the House on Election Day, which I’ve been telling you for months is exactly what is going to happen. Thus, to lay the groundwork for that operation, they have media shills like Bernstein talking up the notion that this is in fact the Republican plan.

Expect to see Bernstein’s fellow Democrat media shills repeating this notion between now and Election Day. If the Democrats didn’t have “projection,” they’d have pretty much nothing at all.

About that “migrant caravan”, the latest estimate is that it has now swelled to 14,000.  It has added 12,000 individuals since it entered Mexico, yet our fake news media continues to promote the lie that it is made up mainly of Hondurans.  So, you’re supposed to believe that the countryside of southern Mexico is just filled to the gills with Honduran nationals.  My goodness.

Late Tuesday, President Trump issued this tweet:

Yes, folks, that is America’s Biggest Mistake, Barack Hussein Obama, in 2005 talking about how strongly he felt about the need to control America’s southern border and our right as a country to self-determine who and how many foreign-born individuals will be allowed to come join us here.  That of course was before he stumbled into the presidency and the entire Democrat Party became nothing more than a Saul Alinsky crisis operation funded by George Soros.

On Tuesday, both President Trump and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo continued to make it crystal clear that this invading army of mainly military-aged males from Mexico and points south will not be allowed to cross into the United States.  The Democrats think this all helps them win the votes of suburban white women, which is the motivation behind the entire crisis operation.  The Republicans are betting that suburban white women don’t want their country invaded anymore than other ordinary Americans.

We’ll get to see who is right in 13 days.  Stay tuned.

That is all.

Our Southern Border is Being Invaded

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Warning to all my Houston friends – downtown’s going to be a mess today. – With more than 100,000 ticket requests having now come in for spots in the 19,000-seat Toyota Center, supporters of President Donald Trump and Texas Senator Ted Cruz began lining up for admission at 8:00 Sunday morning for tonight’s rally.  City officials announced Sunday night that portions of six different downtown streets will be blocked off all day today as part of the Secret Service’s security operation for the event.

Downtown Houston’s traffic scene is a mess on any weekday.  Today, it’s going to be a nightmare.  If your employer lets you work from home, today would be a great day to take advantage of that benefit.

By the way, your fake news media wants you to believe that most of these people lining up to wait more than 24 hours to get into that arena to attend a political rally aren’t going to take the hour or so necessary to actually cast votes in this election.  Your fake news media is in for a very rude awakening over the next couple of weeks.

Um…Jim…we’re “skeptics” because the leftwing bias shows in the media’s reporting, not its social media snark. – Jim VandeHei, the CEO and co-Founder of Axios, has a little piece this morning in which he gives his fellow fakenewsers this advice:

News organizations should ban their reporters from doing anything on social media — especially Twitter — beyond sharing stories. Snark, jokes and blatant opinion are showing your hand, and it always seems to be the left one. This makes it impossible to win back the skeptics.”

As is typical of these fake news media moguls, this completely misses the point.  People are “skeptics” because of all of the news faking that goes on in the media’s reporting, not in its social media snarking.  All the social media activity does is demonstrate clearly what we already know, which is that 98% of our national news media has a strong leftwing, anti-Trump bias, and that bias shows up every day in its fake reporting.  Mr. VandeHei’s advice here is not to do something to get that bias out of the reporting, but to make the confirmation of it stop showing up in social media.

In other words, as has become sadly typical of fake news media executives, his goal is to eliminate transparency in the media.  And these people wonder why tens of millions of ordinary Americans consider them to be an enemy.

This isn’t a “caravan of migrants”, it’s an invasion. – After being briefly halted at the border between Mexico and Guatemala, the invading force of overwhelmingly-military-aged males from Central America was allowed to restart its progress northwards by Mexican officials on Sunday.

The force of supposed “asylum seekers” mainly from Honduras began the day 2,000 strong, but somehow had ballooned to more than 7,000 by nightfall.  So obviously, this is now a caravan made up mainly of Mexican citizens, yet our fake news media continues to characterize it as a bunch of Honduran asylum-seekers.

Let’s be honest about what this really is:  This is not a “caravan of asylum-seekers,” it is an invasion.  Virtually all of the people interviewed by the fake U.S. media openly state they are coming to America for work, not out of any fear or mistreatment in their home country.  Wanting a better job is not a valid reason to seek asylum in the U.S. or pretty much any other country on earth, yet our fake news media continues to misinform the public.

This is an invasion, and the truth is that neither the Democrats nor establishment, Chamber of Commerce Republicans care to do anything about it.  The Republicans want the cheap labor, the Democrats want what they view as future voters, and they’re all just fine with having the public schools in border states overwhelmed with non-English-speaking children and our housing and social services overwhelmed by people who lack the skills to fend for themselves.

Mexican officials have obviously lied to President Trump about their ability – or, more likely, willingness – to prevent the invading force from transiting the length of their country to the U.S./Mexico border, so it appears likely that a force far larger than its current 7,000 will arrive at the border sometime around Election Day.  Which, of course, has been the plan all along by those who have organized and funded the invasion.

President Trump has few real options on how to deal with the problem.  He could honestly declare a state of emergency given that this truly is an invasion of our Southern border, and bring in U.S. military forces to actually shut the border down.  But would shut down not just illegal immigration, but also the massive amounts of trade that takes place across that border every day, exacting a major economic cost.  It’s a real conundrum, but U.S. immigration law leaves the President with few other choices.

Make no mistake about it:  This is what the whole media/Democrat-generated hysteria over “we can’t separate the families!” was all about earlier this year.  They wanted to force the re-implementation of the Bush/Obama-era “catch and release” program in which illegal immigrants are processed, held briefly at the border, and then simply released into the general population, never to be seen again.  And they succeeded in forcing that policy back into place.

Thus, when this invading force – which could grow immensely larger than its current size as it transits Mexico – arrives at the border in early November, this is what the law will require the Trump Administration to do absent shutting down the border.

And remember:  On December 1, a new President, Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador (AMLO), will take office in Mexico.  Mr. Obrador has long advocated not just that Mexican citizens should be allowed into the United States, but that they have an absolute “human right” to do so at their own volition.  Here is what AMLO had to say about this matter in June:

“Soon, very soon, after the victory of our movement, we will defend migrants all over the American continent and the migrants of the world who, by necessity, must abandon their towns to find life in the United States,” Lopez Obrador said during a rally in the Mexican city of Culiacán, eluniversal.com reports.  “It’s a human right we will defend,” he added.

It’s an invasion, plain and simple:  Highly-organized, well-funded, and President Trump appears to be the only person in Washington, D.C. interested in doing anything to bring it to a halt.

The Week in Review: A Week of Democrat/Media Narrative Epic Fails

The Campaign Update Week in Review

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Every week in American politics is different.  They all have their ebbs and flows, their dramas, their comedies, their pratfalls and their tragedies.

Typically, they all have their own narratives, the overriding major story or stories that our fake news media conspire with the Democrat Party to push into the public domain for political advantage.  Sometimes, a single narrative dominates the entire week – as happened a few weeks ago with the whole Kavanaugh drama.  Most of them end up being ineffective, although a few end up having legs, and at the end of most weeks you can typically look back and identify one that served as the overriding Democrat/media theme for that 7-day period.

But not this week.  This week is different.  This week, there was no single overriding narrative that any normal American paid special attention to.

The Khashoggi murder at the Saudi consulate in Turkey came closest – it lasted the whole week, and the media obsessed over it for sure.  But at the end of the day, very few normal Americans actually cared what happened to this radical Islamic, Muslim Brotherhood-pushing opinion writer.  It was an utterly failed narrative, but because Khashoggi was a fellow fake journalist, the U.S. media couldn’t stop pushing it.

But hey, whether the narratives are effective or not, the one thing we know for sure about our hated fake news media is that they will keep on pushing them on behalf of their Democrat masters, because they’ve been doing it for so long now, they don’t know how to do anything else.

 

And now, without further ado, let’s go to the Week in Review (see what I did there?):

It was the week that Democrats hired a bunch of crisis actors to form a “migrant caravan” that amazingly consists of about 80% military-age males (see photo below) to make its way up through Honduras, Guatemala and Mexico to conveniently arrive at the Rio Grande a few days before Election Day.  Thanks to the intervention of President Donald Trump, the “caravan” was halted at Mexico’s southern border.  As of this morning, half of the original 4,000 are on their way back to Honduras and the other half are in a Mexican detention camp.

 

It was the week that the fake news media finally began admitting what the Campaign Update has been telling you for several weeks, which is that Special Counsel Robert Mueller is systematically closing up his shop.  The newsfakers at Politico ran a piece on Friday titled “Mueller Report PSA:  Prepare for Disappointment”.  The subhead reads “And be forewarned that the special counsel’s findings may never be made public.”  Campaign Update readers knew all of that a week ago.

Speaking of Democrat disappointment, it was the week that the fake news media and pollsters who have been pushing their “Blue Wave” fantasy for a year suddenly began getting cold feet and speculating about what will happen if the Republicans maintain control of both houses of congress again?  Go figure.

It was the week that the Pantsuit Princess let it be known she is contemplating running yet again in 2020 and many Democrat Party leaders contemplated slitting their own wrists.

It was the week that our fake news media demonstrated that it cares infinitely more about the murder of an obscure Saudi national opinion writer than it cared about the following killings of actual Americans:

– Kate Steinle

– Seth Rich

– Benghazi

– Vince Foster

– Mary Mahoney

– James McDougal

– Ed Willey

– Ron Brown

– Mollie Tibbetts

…and this list could go on and on and on.  And these fake “journalists” wonder why so many millions of Americans detest them.

It was the week that Mitch McConnell and his wife were accosted by a Democrat thug in a cafe in his hometown of Louisville, Kentucky.  Rather than just sit and watch like a bunch of Washington D.C. slugs, McConnell’s fellow diners got pissed and ran the thug out of the place.  That’s what happens when you try to pull crap like this out here in Flyover Country, boys.  If you pull a stunt like that in Texas, you’ll probably end up in an emergency room.

It was the week when Elizabeth Warren became so enraged with President Trump and his constant “Pocahontas” taunts about her fake Indian heritage that she took a damn DNA test and proved herself to be 1/1,024th “right”.  The hilarity that ensued with meme after meme after meme on social media was comedic gold, I tell ya, gold!

It was the week that Christine Blasey Ford disappeared completely from the public conversation, as the Democrat Party has no further use for her.  The same thing will happen to all those crisis actors down in Mexico at midnight on Election Day.

Speaking of disappearing Democrat tools, it was also the week that the Creepy Porn Lawyer disappeared from the public space.  Presumably all those dimwits at CNN and MSNBC who gave money to Stormy Daniels’ GoFundMe account are a little ticked that their money will now actually go to reimburse President Trump for his legal expenses after the porn star and her creepy lawyer got poured out of court last week.

It was the week that oily Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein had several hours to spend being interviewed by the Wall Street Journal, but couldn’t find the time to offer testimony to congress.  When Rosenstein finally agreed to testify next week, he demanded the testimony take place in secret in a secure location, and with only 2 Republicans and 2 Democrats present.

It was the week that a husband and wife pair of nitwits in Katy, Texas decided it would be a peachy idea to paint a huge, 20′ x 20′ “Beto” sign on their front lawn, and then expressed great confusion about why their neighborhood HOA is irritated with them.  I swear I don’t make this stuff up.

Finally, it was the week when the President of the United States of America sent out this hilarious message on his Twitter account:

Funny, but oh, so true.

That is all.
