Monday News Roundup: China, not Russia, is America’s Real Adversary

While the Democrats and corrupt news media – all of whom are beholden to China – were distracting the nation by painting Russia as our nation’s boogeyman, here is what was really happening in the world. – If you read just one item of news today, read the op/ed piece Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe authored for the weekend edition of the Wall Street Journal.

In that piece, DNI Ratcliffe details chapter and verse why China – not Russia and a fading Putin – is America’s #1 adversary in the world, and how it is infiltrating our economic, economic and political systems to subvert our country to its will without firing a shot.

Here is an excerpt from that piece just to whet your appetite:

Within intelligence agencies, a healthy debate and shift in thinking is already under way. For the talented intelligence analysts and operators who came up during the Cold War, the Soviet Union and Russia have always been the focus. For others who rose through the ranks at the turn of this century, counterterrorism has been top of mind. But today we must look with clear eyes at the facts in front of us, which make plain that China should be America’s primary national security focus going forward.

Other nations must understand this is true for them as well. The world is being presented a choice between two wholly incompatible ideologies. China’s leaders seek to subordinate the rights of the individual to the will of the Communist Party. They exert government control over companies and subvert the privacy and freedom of their citizens with an authoritarian surveillance state.

We shouldn’t assume that Beijing’s efforts to drag the world back into the dark will fail just because the forces of good have triumphed before in modern times. China believes that a global order without it at the top is a historical aberration. It aims to change that and reverse the spread of liberty around the world.

Beijing is preparing for an open-ended period of confrontation with the U.S. Washington should also be prepared. Leaders must work across partisan divides to understand the threat, speak about it openly, and take action to address it.

This is our once-in-a-generation challenge. Americans have always risen to the moment, from defeating the scourge of fascism to bringing down the Iron Curtain. This generation will be judged by its response to China’s effort to reshape the world in its own image and replace America as the dominant superpower. The intelligence is clear. Our response must be as well.

[End]

Think of how America’s posture towards the ChiCom government is going to shift if China Joe Potato Head Biden, whose family has profited to the tune of millions from Chinese interests over the past decade, is installed into the presidency. Think of how easy it will then become for Xi Jinping and the ChiComs to subvert our political system, especially if the Democrats win both runoff elections in Georgia and assume control of both houses of congress.

In the media, talking heads at every major TV and radio outlet and newspapers have been spouting ChiCom talking points for years now, with their social media cohorts censoring anti-China messaging on their platforms. Our major universities have for years now taken millions from ChiCom interests to fund pro-China propaganda classes and professors.

This is serious stuff, folks. Deadly serious.

In the political system, ChiCom efforts to bribe and influence politicians is not limited to Washington. Watch the reactions of several governors as Sec. State Mike Pompeo details Chinese corruption at the state level at their Winter Meeting of the National Governors Association:

If you think it’s not really important for President Trump to prevail in his efforts to overturn the stolen election, think again. If you think the results of the Georgia runoffs and who ultimately controls the U.S. Senate are not important, think again.

Russia is just a Democrat fantasy, propaganda pushed out to the public for the last 5 years in a concerted effort with the corrupt news media to obscure the real threat to our nation posed by China. America has one clear and present adversary that is a real threat to its ultimate survival, and Vladimir Putin has nothing to do with it.

Meanwhile, in other news…. – Rudy Giuliani tested positive for COVID-19, because of course he did:

*sigh*

Hey, look, the FBI appears to be doing something productive! – It’s probably just a shiny object aimed at propping up the dumpster fire Bureau’s disastrous reputation, but FBI agents did seem to conduct an actual raid on a residence in Arizona’s Maricopa County (home to Phoenix and more than half of the state’s voters) on Sunday:

From the story at Forbes.com:

On the morning of November 5, as the 2020 election hung in the balance, Arizona federal agents raided a two-story house in Fountain Hills, Maricopa County, a county that had become a key battleground in the presidential race. The agents were looking for evidence of a cyberattack on an unnamed organization and stolen voter data. They left with eight hard drives, three computers and a bag of USB sticks. The resident of the property, a 56-year-old IT expert named Elliot Kerwin, was served the warrant. He is not yet facing charges and was unreachable for comment at the time of publication. There is no indication that anything other than voters’ information, which can be acquired for a few hundred dollars in Arizona counties, was taken from the affected office.

The warrant, discovered by Forbes this week, reveals investigators have been looking into a computer intrusion at an unnamed “victim office,” which occurred from October 21 to November 4. At the Kerwin residence, they were looking for any evidence within the seized computers that showed they’d been used to access the IT network at the office, as well as “protected voters’ information” and any indication that it had been disseminated to other people.

Of the 15 county recorder’s offices contacted by Forbes about the investigation, only one, Maricopa County, confirmed voter data had been stolen, noting that a federal investigation was under way. The Maricopa County Recorder’s office, which is just 30 minutes’ drive south from Kerwin’s home, did not confirm whether or not the investigation was the same as that referred to in the search warrant.

[End]

Ok, so, the raid took place over a month ago and the county officials claim that a “federal investigation” is taking place. Meanwhile, the Electoral College is scheduled to meet and vote a week from today. Do any of you think the FBI and DOJ will produce a shred of results from their “investigation” if those findings would benefit Donald Trump and his quest to prove the massive voter fraud that the Democrats perpetrated in the state of Arizona?

If so, shoot me an email. I’ve got some prime real estate I’d like to talk to you about buying. Thanks.

That is all.

Thursday News Roundup: Biden’s China Ties Create Real Transition Problems

Before we move on to election-related news, this is a real tweet from the United Nations:

Again, THAT IS NOT A PARODY. It is really what is happening right now at the United Nations – China is reviewing the human rights record of the United States of America and offering criticism of it.

Ok, wait – this IS election-related, because this is exactly the kind of globalist nonsense Quid Pro China Joe Biden endorses. It is exactly the kind of pro-communist international initiative that the U.S. promoted during the Obama/Biden years and to which we will return immediately upon Biden being sworn into office.

Guess which other countries make up the UN Human Rights Council? Bolivia, China, Côte d’Ivoire, Cuba, France, Gabon, Malawi, Mexico, Nepal, Pakistan, Russia, Senegal, Ukraine, United Kingdom and Uzbekistan. That’s right, friends and Democrats, the human rights record of the United States of America is being judged by the narco-state of Mexico, Russia, Cuba, Senegal, Uzbekistan, France and China.

Man, this is exactly what Joe Biden represents; it is literally who he is.

God help us all if Donald Trump does not succeed in exposing the theft of this election.

Speaking of Quid Pro China Joe Biden, yesterday he gave a speech while standing before a backdrop that read “Office of the President-elect.”

One problem: There is no such thing in America as “the office of the president-elect.” This is pure theater, pure propaganda designed to brainwash you into accepting a stolen election.

Don’t accept it.

If Biden gets briefings, China gets them, too, Senator. – Yesterday, I pointed out the good news that most Republicans are closing ranks to support the President’s efforts to expose the massive Democrat election fraud that took place all over the country. Today, I give you an example of one Republican who is not, Oklahoma Senator James Lankford.:

Excerpt from the Hill’s story:

GOP Sen. James Lankford (Okla.) said there was “nothing wrong” with President-elect Joe Biden getting intelligence briefings and pledged to “step in” if the former vice president doesn’t have access by Friday.

Asked about Biden not getting the briefings, Lankford told Oklahoma radio station KRMG, in an interview that aired Wednesday, that it “should be resolved” by Friday.

“There is no loss from him getting the briefings and to be able to do that and if that’s not occuring by Friday I will step in as well, and to be able to push and to say this needs to occur so that regardless of the outcome of the election … people can be ready for that actual task,” Lankford said.

[End]

Thus, Lankford not only undermines the President’s efforts, he also undermines the efforts by the Senate Homeland Security Committee to reveal the Biden family’s clear conflicts of interest and vulnerability to blackmail vis a vis Ukraine and China.

This is very simple, folks: If Joe Biden receives national security briefings, the ChiComs are likely to get them next. And once the ChiComs get that national security information, America is in a world of hurt. Neither Biden nor anyone associated with him should receive a word of national security information from anyone in the Trump administration until the election results have been fully certified by a vote in the Electoral College and they are left with no other choice.

The day that happens will be a very dangerous day for America.

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo understands what’s at stake. – While Lankford is taking sides with Biden/Harris, Secretary of State Pompeo is keeping his eye squarely on the ball, ordering his people at the State Department to refuse to share information with anyone associated with the Biden camp. Naturally, The Hill is whining about that this morning.

Here’s an excerpt:

The State Department won’t give President-elect Joe Biden or his transition team dozens of messages that foreign leaders have given to the department, CNN reported Wednesday.

President Trump’s administration is preventing Biden from accessing the messages that were sent after Biden was projected as the president-elect over the weekend, State Department officials familiar with the messages told CNN.

The department typically organizes the communications with presidents-elect, but the Trump administration has refused to recognize Biden’s win and grant his team access to transition information and resources.

The Biden transition team instead has conducted calls with foreign leaders without State Department help, but a source familiar with the situation told CNN, “They would prefer to be using the State Department resources.”

[End]

Oh.

Guess who else understands what is really at stake? – Iowa Senator Chuck Grassley gets it. On Wednesday, Grassley sent a letter to William Barr publicly informing him of the obvious violation of U.S. lobbying laws involving the failure of Biden’s son Hunter and his brother James to register as agents of China. The letter reads, in part:

based on recently released emails, texts, and my recent report with Senator Johnson on conflicts of interest relating to Hunter Biden’s financial activities and those of his business associates, it appears that he and his uncle, James Biden, had significant connections to CEFC China Energy Co. Ltd. (CEFC).

The records also show that CEFC was an extension of the Chinese government and that CEFC intended to alter U.S. policy and public opinion to its benefit and that the Chinese government would be the principal beneficiary of those actions. The apparent relationships came to light not through proper FARA registration but only through the work of my oversight activities and through recent media revelations.”

[End]

Oh.

Quid Pro China Joe Biden has not been certified as the winner of a single state in this election. Not one. He will not officially become the president-elect until a formal vote of the Electoral College is held in December. Biden’s obvious conflicts of interest and clear vulnerability to being subject to blackmail by both Ukraine and China mean that Trump administration personnel have a duty to deny him and his people access to any sensitive or classified information until they have no legal choice but to do so.

As much as our corrupt news media monolith of disinformation will whine about this, the blame for it must be laid squarely at their own feet for their abject failure to do their duty in vetting Biden and Harris for the public during this campaign. For the last 30 years I have written that this country’s loss of anything resembling an honest and ethical press establishment represents a clear and present danger to our nation’s ultimate survival as a constitutional republic. A fully vetted Biden/Harris ticket could never have been elected by an election process that was properly policed by an independent news media. But we do not have an independent news media in this country anymore, and here we are.

Those on the left who don’t like where we are have only themselves to blame.

That is all.

Pompeo: “There Will Be A Smooth Transition To A Second Trump Administration”

Wow. This is fantastic.

In their ongoing efforts to project the perception in the public that dementia China Traitor Joe Biden is officially the president-elect (he isn’t), fake reporters across the corrupt news media have been whining the past couple of days that the General Services Administration has not formally begun scheduling “transition” meetings with Biden’s staff. Public perception and acceptance is critically important to this attempted election theft, and the media hacks have been pounding this false message home at every opportunity.

At a presser today, one reporter asked Sec. State Mike Pompeo “Is the State Department currently preparing to engage with the Biden transition team, and if not, at what point does a delay hamper a smooth transition proposal risk to national security?”

Pompeo’s answer was immediate and epic:

There is a man who is properly focused on the correct outcome here.

Public perception is equally important from the Administration’s point of view, after all. It is important for cabinet officers and other officials to maintain a united front, which is of course why corrupt reporters like Jake Tapper have also been pushing out false, unsourced rumors that the President knows he can’t win but is just doing this all for fun or something.

Everything you see and hear from the corrupt news media monolith is a lie, pure Nazi-style disinformation, a joint effort with the Democrat Party to brainwash you into quietly accepting a stolen election.

Never give in.

That is all.

Democrat/Media Soleimani Narrative is an Epic Failure

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

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

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

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

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

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

Image

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

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

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

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

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

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

Oof.

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

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

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

Losers, all of them.

Did Nikki Haley Just Reveal the Leaders of the 25th Amendment Push?

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

Tired of all this #WINNING yet? Yeah, neither am I. – For what seems like the 16,000th time during President Donald Trump’s term in office, the Dow Jones Industrial Average closed at yet another record high on Monday, as the Trump economy just keeps roaring along. Democrats and fake journalists everywhere were doubling up on their depression meds as the markets closed.

When Nikki Haley speaks, people listen. – When people start surveying the GOP landscape post-Trump, whether that comes in January after being removed from the the presidency by the Senate (which is not likely to happen), in January 2021 after a loss in the 2020 election (also not in the cards) or in January 2025 following the completion of his second term in office (bingo!), the survey inevitably lands to the name of Nikki Haley as one of his most likely successors.

Other names also arise, of course: Names like Mike Pence and Mike Pompeo and Ted Cruz, and the less obvious names like Florida Governor Ron DeSantis and Ohio Congressman Jim Jordan and even Texas Congressman Dan Crenshaw. Lindsey Graham, with his thrice-weekly appearances on one Fox News evening program or another, is obviously angling for another run at the gig, as are Rand Paul and even Kanye West. But inevitably, the name of Nikki Haley always comes up.

She is, after all, a former successful governor of South Carolina, and a person who, after not really being on board with the Trump Train during the 2016 campaign, created a very high profile for herself as Trump’s very loyal, very aggressive and very outspoken UN Ambassador. Although her record as Governor was decidedly mixed from a conservative perspective, perhaps more than any of Trump’s cabinet-level officials, Haley has stood out as the most aggressive advocate for his international policies.

Thus it is that anything she has to say about the goings-on inside White House during her two-year tenure is given a lot of weight by most Trump supporters. In a Sunday interview with Kelly O’Donnell of CBS, Haley basically accused both then-Chief of Staff John Kelly and then-Secretary of State Rex Tillerson of rank insubordination, even though she said they claimed that was not their intent.

Here’s the key outtake:

Haley recounts a closed-door encounter with then-White House Chief of Staff John Kelly and then-Secretary of State Rex Tillerson: “Kelly and Tillerson confided in me that when they resisted the president, they weren’t being insubordinate, they were trying to save the country … Tillerson went on to tell me the reason he resisted the president’s decisions was because, if he didn’t, people would die. This was how high the stakes were, he and Kelly told me. We are doing the best we can do to save the country, they said. We need you to work with us and help us do it. This went on for over an hour.”

O’Donnell asked, “You memorialized that conversation? It definitely happened?”

“It absolutely happened,” said Haley. “And instead of saying that to me, they should’ve been saying that to the president, not asking me to join them on their sidebar plan. It should’ve been, ‘Go tell the president what your differences are, and quit if you don’t like what he’s doing.’ But to undermine a president is really a very dangerous thing. And it goes against the Constitution, and it goes against what the American people want. And it was offensive.”

[We asked them to respond. John Kelly tells “Sunday Morning”: “If by resistance and stalling she means putting a staff process in place … to ensure the (president) knew all the pros and cons of what policy decision he might be contemplating so he could make an informed decision, then guilty as charged.”]

Undermining a president from the inside is indeed a very dangerous thing, as Haley notes, and her accusation against Kelly and Tillerson rings true given everything else we know about the two men and their behavior while serving in those positions. Tillerson repeatedly made his personal disdain for the President and his lack of support for Trump policies related to North Korea, China and other parts of the world very clear while serving as SOS, which is the main reason why his tenure in the office was so short. Kelly’s first move after moving into his Chief of Staff role was not to go after the myriad leakers inside the White House, but rather to cut the President off from his most loyal supporters and start to systematically force them out of their jobs.

Rumors have run rampant for more than two years now that both men were willing participants in the mid-2017 plot to dummy up a rationale for removing Trump from office under the 25th Amendment, a plot we know beyond any reasonable doubt that Rod Rosenstein was a part of. If you believe in the whole “where there’s smoke there’s fire” paradigm, it seems extremely likely that those persistent rumors must have some basis in reality.

If Haley’s contention about the approach by Tillerson and Kelly is accurate – and there is little reason to believe that it is not – then it would be consistent with a move that would be made as a part of a larger 25th amendment effort targeting the President. Haley’s contention here, and cryptic use of the term “sidebar plan,” is troubling in the extreme, and Tillerson’s refusal to even respond to it does not reflect well on him. Kelly’s response, which does not in any way address the accusation, may be even worse.

As mentioned earlier, Haley’s interview – promoting her new book – is also a not-so-subtle attempt to keep herself in the public eye, ready to quickly move in the unlikely event of Trump’s actual removal by the Senate. The following passage reveals that part of her personal agenda:

Haley insists she has no immediate plans to run for any office, including the presidency, and as she departed the Trump administration last year she said, “I can promise you what I’ll be doing is campaigning for this one.”

She told O’Donnell, “A year is a long time in politics. It really is a lifetime in politics. And so, I think what’s best for me is take it a year at a time and see what happens.”

With her new book, lucrative speaking engagements, and a seat on the corporate board of Boeing, Nikki Haley acknowledges there are still chapters to be written:  “I’m too young to stop fighting. I’ll always be out there. I’ll always use the power of my voice for what I believe is good.”

So, whether the jumping off point becomes early 2020, early 2021 or the 2024 election campaign, you can be sure that Nikki Haley will be vying to become the face of the GOP in the wake of the Trump presidency. Lining herself up as this President’s most loyal and vocal supporter helps her cause immensely.

That is all.

Wednesday Was a No-Good, Terrible, Very Bad Day for the Deep State Dems

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

Wednesday may have been the worst day the Democrat Party has had during the Trump presidency. – Just as it appeared to some that the Deep State Dems might be gaining a little traction in their neverending coup d’etat, they suffered a series a series of self-inflicted wounds and bombs lobbed by the President into their midst that had them scrambling to pretend they’re actually going to work on real legislation by the end of the day.

That pretense is just that, of course, as the Democrat Party has totally sacrificed itself at the altar of its ultra-radical social media Outrage Mob and its pea-brained organ grinder monkey leader, Alexandria Ocasio Cortez.

There will be no serious effort to pass meaningful legislation for the rest of this year, as San Fran Nan’s gang of Munchkin committee chairmen focus their efforts solely on staging this fake impeachment “investigation” that is just another bit of DC Kabuki Theater, and a massive one at that.

Image result for midgets in wizard of oz

Pictured above (l to r): Eliot Engel, Adam Schiff and Jerrold Nadler.

Let’s just go through a few of the disasters the Democrats suffered throughout the day on Wednesday:

Pompeo decimates Democrat case for subpoenas. – At a press conference in Rome, Italy, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo reiterates his firm opposition to allowing any of State Department professionals to be forced to become a party to the Democrats’ carnival midway freak show, and lays out a detailed constitutional case for taking that stance. The Outrage Mob went into full outrage mode, because of course they did, but nobody real cared.

Pelosi and Schiff hold a disastrous press conference. – Tweedle-Dee and Tweedle-Dum followed shortly thereafter with possibly the most dishonest press event since Baghdad Bob went on TV to assure the world that all was well in Iraq, promising a fake impeachment process that would be “fair to the President,” and with Pelosi’s newly-restructured face trying and failing to summon tears about how she has a big case of the sads about it all. The unintentionally-hilarious presser ends with San Fran Nan begging in vain to convince one member of the Democrat toady press to ask her a question – any question at all would have done – about something other than impeachment.

Image result for pelosi schiff meme

Schiff revealed to have coordinated with the fake whistleblower before the complaint was even written. – The New York Times published a piece in which it claimed that Schiff had in fact begun coordinating with the fake whistleblower even before the fake whistleblower’s complaint had been drafted. Which means that this entire charade is being run on the exact same playbook the Democrat/media complex used to smear Brett Kavanaugh a year ago, given that that all began with Dianne Feinstein coordinating efforts with false witness Christine Blasey Ford months before Ford “came forward” with her false allegations. Schiff naturally denied the allegation in the Times’s report, but no matter: Schiff has been caught publicly in so many fabrications now that he has no credibility with any non-media American, and the likely truth of his mendacity has been planted in the public’s mind.

Image

Trump owns them both in three different press events. – The President, meanwhile, held three separate press availabilties at the White House during the day, eviscerating the Democrats’ false case at every turn. Having been handed the New York Times piece about Schiff’s mendacity just before the third presser, he took it a step further, contending that Schiff actually helped write the complaint. While the corrupt media immediately went into full scoffing and tut-tutting mode over that statement, how many dozens of times have we seen the President make a statement like this and watch it turn out to be 100% true days, weeks, or months later?

Ukraine President Zelensky confirms he has never even met Rudy Giuliani. – This of course puts the lie to various media reports that have claimed that Giuliani had met face-to-face with Zelensky even before the July call with President Trump that supposedly germinated the fake whistleblower complaint.

Details of recent Barr/Durham visit to Italy become public. – While rumors and a few reports about this recent trip had begun to float around late last week, the details and their implications did not fully spill out into the mainstream and social media worlds until Wednesday.

State Department IG, after requesting “emergency hearing” with House Intel Committee staff, delivers folder full of four-month old newspaper clippings. – News of this event, possibly the greatest trolling event in federal government history, landed on Twitter early in the evening thanks to the reporting of the Daily Caller’s Amber Athey:

Image result for lucy charlie brown football

Brutal, indeed.

What Wednesday demonstrated more than anything else is that literally everything the Democrats do or say is a lie. Everything is just more theater to try to influence public opinion from a political party that has succeeded in purging itself of actual substance.

They will keep doubling down on the neverending coup d’etat not because it’s likely to be a successful strategy, but because they literally have no idea what else to do at this point.

If the Democrat Party were a brain, it would be that of a one-trick Donkey.

Mike Pence is Right: Ilhan Omar Has no Place on the Foreign Affairs Committee

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

Why did it take so long? – It took a Brooklyn jury well over a week to come back with a verdict finding Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman guilty, at long last. What are they putting in the water in Brooklyn that made this so hard? Seriously, unless there was some serious jury tampering going on, how could there possibly be any reasonable doubt in anyone’s mind that one of the most vicious, brutal and guilty beasts on the face of the earth was on trial here?

At any rate, the brute will remain behind bars for a long, long time, most likely the rest of his sorry life, so at least justice was done in the end.  But damn, where was the doubt here?

Another no good terrible very bad day for the Enemy Within. – Minnesota’s radical Muslim Democrat Ilhan Omar had another bad, and frankly idiotic day on Capitol Hill on Wednesday, as the fallout from her anti-Semitic tweet storm on Monday continued.

First, a clever parliamentary maneuver by the GOP minority in the House forced a vote on a resolution affirming America’s support for Israel and condemning those who endorse “movements that deny Israel’s right to exist,” something Omar has done repeatedly in the past. The move caught Democrats by surprise, and the many anti-Semitic among them had to scramble to decide whether to reveal their true nature or vote “yes” on the language.

In the end, all those present decided to support the language, resulting in a 424-0 vote in favor. Amazingly, not one of the media outlets has chosen to report on the only real salient question here, which is how did the Enemy Within vote on the measure? After all, the House has 435 members, so 11 are unaccounted for in that 424 number. We know that two voted “present”, but what about the others? The fake news media appears incapable of finding out.  Amazing.

Regardless, the unanimous vote amounts to a clear rebuke of Omar and her fellow anti-Semites on Capitol Hill.

A little earlier in the day, the Enemy Within used a hearing of the House Foreign Affairs Committee – on which San Fran Nan has chosen to plant her – to ask Special Envoy to Venezuela Elliott Abrams completely off-topic “questions” that were really just accusations. The topic of the hearing was ostensibly the rapidly deteriorating humanitarian situation in the socialist utopia of Venezuela, but Omar decided this would be a great opportunity to hurl accusations and insults at Abrams about his supposed role in … wait for it … the IRAN CONTRA SCANDAL!

I kid you not, the Enemy Within is so depraved, so despicable, such a typical…well…such a typical Democrat that she spent her entire allotted 5 minutes reading insults at Abrams from a document someone else had written for her. Her performance was so juvenile and inappropriate that even the ultra-leftwing Daily Beast published a post condemning her actions.

Don’t misunderstand – I have no sympathy at all for Elliott Abrams, a war-mongering neo-con who should not have any role whatsoever in a Trump Administration, and am frankly befuddled why Secretary of State Pompeo chose him for what is supposed to be a “peace-making” role. But witnesses at any congressional hearing, regardless of their backgrounds or which political party happens to be in the majority, should expect committee members to stick to the supposed reason for the hearing in their questioning. And no witness should be expected to sit quietly by as a member of congress, conveniently exempt from the nation’s laws governing libel and slander, impugns their reputation with ad hominem attacks in a public hearing.

Granted, Omar’s behavior in yesterday’s hearing has become just par for the Democrat course over the past two years, but when you’re a Democrat and your behavior is so far out of accepted norms that you draw the condemnation of a leftwing lapdog fake media outlet like the Daily Beast, you have definitely gone too far.

More than anything else, Omar’s despicable behavior yesterday proves exactly how wrong it is for this Enemy Within to have a seat on the House Foreign Affairs Committee. Simply condemning her anti-Semitic remarks is not enough – Speaker Pelosi needs to take some real action where this garbage member of congress is concerned. As Vice President Mike Pence said on Tuesday, she should remove the Enemy Within from the Foreign Affairs Committee.

Warning: Don’t hold your breath waiting for that to happen. These are Democrats we’re talking about here.

That is all.

Why are CNN and MSNBC Such Cesspits of Racism and Bigotry?

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

News you can’t trust, from NBC. –  The Daily Caller has a great piece of actual journalism up this morning, detailing how the dishonest fakenews hacks at NBC created a false narrative by misquoting a Republican Senator, ran with it all day long and still refuse to properly correct their multiple “errors.”

It takes about 5 minutes to read the piece in full, and it will be the best 5 minutes you spend today – well, except for the 8 minutes you’re about to spend reading the rest of Today’s Campaign Update, that is.

Why are liberal cable news operations such cesspits of racism and bigotry?, Part 9,385. – Harry Enten, an “election analyst” used by the newfakers at CNN, based his analysis of the 2020 race for the Democrat Nomination on that party’s – and perhaps his own – racism and bigotry towards white male persons here in the United States of America.

Don’t believe me?  Here’s a direct quote:

“If you want to win in the Midwest, there may not be a better man than this guy,” Enten said while talking about Senator Sherrod Brown, noting the Ohio legislator’s success as Republicans dominated in the state’s other races. “So if Democrats want to play, this is an interesting guy for them. I will point out though, another white male. I am very suspect of that this year going into a Democratic primary with women doing well and the African-American face of the Democratic party, I am not sure it’s the time to nominate a white man.”

No wonder Irish Bob O’Rourke likes to pretend he’s part Hispanic (he isn’t) – if you’re a white male in today’s Democrat Party, apparently you need not apply. Look for Bernie Sanders to soon change his first name to “Benito”, while Joe Biden will shock everyone by not going for the obvious “Jose” and pick the more elegant and Western-sounding “Sancho” instead. Creep Porn Lawyer Michael Avenatti, who harbors presidential aspirations of his own despite a series of personal setbacks the last few months, will no doubt go with “Basta”, the Spanish word ironically meaning “that’s enough” he uses at the end of every Twitter message he sends.

But hey, this Enten guy ain’t nuthin’ compared to Morning Mika (whose last name I can’t spell and don’t care too Google), who insulted Secretary of State Mike Pompeo live on air, before her entire audience that would fill an entire high school gymnasium, by using an anti-gay slur, calling him President Trump’s “butt boy.”

This, of course, is just par for the course over at MSNBC, where Joy Ann Reid still hosts a daily program six months after having been revealed as an anti-gay bigot. But hey, it looks like Mika did have to take at least one forced day off, as she did not show up for work Thursday morning after hurling her insult at Pompeo on Wednesday’s show, although she was right back to work this morning.

But back to Mike Pompeo for a moment.  This is a truly great American, a guy who not only graduated from West Point, but finished first in his class there. After spending 5 years in active service, he then obtained his law degree from Harvard University. He went on to run multiple businesses before being elected three times to serve as a congressman from his home state of Kansas. He served as Director of the CIA for a year under President Trump before being picked to replace the fired Rex Tillerson as Secretary of State, where he has done a fantastic job.

This is the guy Morning Mika refers to as a “butt boy.” Just so we’re all aware. And NBC/MSNBC is just fine with that.

They got their man, who they knew about long ago. – French law enforcement shot and killed one Charif Chekatt, a 29-year-old whom they had been searching for since Tuesday night’s attack near Strasbourg’s Christmas market. Chekatt, shouting “Allah Akbar!”, killed three shoppers and wounded thirteen more before fleeing the scene.

Unlike in America, where our law enforcement officials and fake news media pretend to wonder about the “motives” of obvious radical Islamic terrorists for days on end, only admitting to reality after pretty much everyone has stopped following the story, French officials identified this as an act of terrorism almost immediately, clearly identified the suspect they were looking for, and disseminated photos of him to help in their search.

While that is all commendable, one reason they were able to do all of that is because they had been aware of Chekatt and his terrorist associations for many months before he committed his act. Yet another “known wolf” who is allowed to commit mass murder before anything is done about him.  Sad.

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.

While the Fake News Media Tears its Hair out, Trump Achieves Major Policy Wins

The Evening Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

While the fake news media was sleeping…  – Hey, y’all, while all the lunatic democrats and fake journalists were tearing their hair out and tossing hissy fits about this fake border issue yesterday, President Trump used the opportunity to take the following actions:

– He pulled the U.S. out of the worthless UN Human Rights Council, which has been nothing more than a forum for bashing Israel; and
 
– He issued an executive order reversing Obama’s extremely idiotic 2010 Oceans Policy, replacing it with a policy of his own.  Thus, yet another aspect of the extreme un-American Obama legacy bites the dust, thanks to Donald J. Trump.
 
And the fake news media barely mentioned the Human Rights Council pullout, and still hasn’t even noticed the Oceans Policy reversal. Cool, huh?
For those unfamiliar with it, here is a good write-up on the Oceans Policy executive order:

Yesterday, President Trump issued an executive order from the White House establishing directions for revoking and revamping the Obama 2010 oceans policy. The Obama policy adopted a comprehensive management plan for the nation’s oceans, coastal waters and the Great Lakes. The new direction proposed by the Trump administration emphasizes economic and security concerns over marine conservation, sustainable use and climate change. Moving a national ocean policy away from data collection to providing opportunities and encouragement to state and local agencies for managing and guiding marine activities.

The Trump order stresses economic and security concerns. Stating that U.S. waters “are foundational to the economy, security, global competitiveness, and well-being of the United States.”

The Executive Order states that: “Ocean industries employ millions of Americans and support a strong national economy. Domestic energy production from Federal waters strengthens the Nation’s security and reduces reliance on imported energy.”

Obama’s policy was “protect, maintain, and restore the health and biological diversity” and boost “conservation and sustainable uses” of resources, and using “the best available science and knowledge to inform” management decisions and “understand, respond, and adapt to a changing global environment” have been superseded by the Trump Administration’s new priorities.

President Trump’s priority is directing federal agencies to coordinate on providing “economic, security, and environmental benefits for present and future generations of Americans,” and stresses the need to “promote the lawful use of the ocean by agencies, including United States Armed Forces.” A Trump policy priority is to “facilitate the economic growth of coastal communities and promote ocean industries,” “advance ocean science and technology,” “enhance America’s energy security,” and ensure that “Federal regulations and management decisions do not prevent productive and sustainable use of ocean, coastal, and Great Lakes waters.”.

So, a shift from a policy that is based on a leftist fantasy to a policy that emphasizes and promotes the gigantic economic opportunities and national security enhancements offered by the major waters of the United States.  Three years ago, this would have been the lead story on every evening newscast as liberals responded to the shift with their typical lunatic hysteria.  Today, it isn’t even a blink on the screen.

Genius.

Hey, Remember That Blue Wave? Yeah, it Ain’t Happening.

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Tired of all this #Winning yet? Part I – The President, First Lady, Vice President and Secretary of State all turned out to Andrews Air Force Base at 2:00 a.m. to welcome home Kim Dong Chul, Kim Hak Song and Tony Kim, three Americans who had been held as prisoners for years by the North Korean government.  Their release was a show of good faith by the Crazy Little Fat Guy, Kim Jong Un, in advance of next month’s face-to-face negotiation with President Trump related to the de-nuclearization of the Korean peninsula.

The sight of one of the men hugging Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, who had flown halfway across the world to secure their release earlier in the week, was enough to bring tears to the eyes of any thinking person.  Democrats and fake reporters were, of course, unmoved, given that these three men were released as the result of the efforts of President Trump, after having languished in a North Korean prison throughout much of the administration of media hero Barack Obama.

By the way, if you’re sitting there wondering why this kind of thing keeps happening under this President, when we never saw anything similar the previous 8 years, it’s because this President is trying.  It really is that simple.

Your news media in action!  Part I – The deranged lunatics at the New York Times, meanwhile, published a piece Wednesday morning lambasting Secretary Pompeo for being “AWOL” as President Trump announced he was ending U.S. participation in the horrible Iran deal.  Later in the day, after some no-doubt “anonymous source” (because that’s the only kind of sources the New York Times has anymore) informed the morons at the Times that Pompeo was actually rescuing a bunch of political prisoners, the fake newspaper published a piece that was actually positive about the prisoner release. What a dumpster fire.

Your news media in action!  Part II – Speaking of huge, raging dumpster fires, I give you NBC News.  Former Trump attorney Michael Cohen has been the subject of so much fake reporting by the Peacock Network that he felt the need to get on his Twitter account to try to shame the fake news operation into correcting some of his horrible reporting:

That’s right:  NBC News is so fake and lacking in any editorial standards whatsoever that it can’t even identify the correct guy named Michael Cohen before filing its reports.  I mean, dayum, people.

Your Democrats in action! – But the most disgusting spectacle of the day was, without question, watching as some of the very worst people on the face of the earth, like Kamala Harris, Mark Warner and Dianne Feinstein, questioned the nominee for CIA Director, Gina Haspel, about her “moral compass.”  My goodness.

Tired of all this #Winning yet?  Part II.  That Blue Wave is circling down the toilet. – Speaking of Democrats, that much-ballyhooed “Blue Wave” that all the Democrat operatives in the fake news media were telling you was an absolute certainty a few months ago has pretty much fallen off of even CNN’s fake news story rotation.  Maybe that’s because even CNN’s own congressional generic preference poll, which just four months ago claimed the Democrats led Republicans by a whopping 16 points, yesterday came in at just a 3 point Democrat lead, which happens to be within the fake poll’s margin of error.

The CNN result is pretty consistent with the other generic congressional polls, all of which have narrowed up substantially since the first of the year.  Which should come as no surprise to anyone.

I told you back in December that the whole “Blue Wave” thing was just wishful thinking on the part of the Democrats and their media support group.  I predicted then that as the tax cuts kicked into working peoples’ paychecks, the good economic growth news continued coming in, and other good things continued to happen, those numbers would narrow substantially.  I even predicted that the situation with North Korea, which at that time appeared to be a major crisis verging on a military conflict, would in fact be ultimately resolved on largely U.S. terms without a shot being fired.

Guess what’s about to happen?  The situation with North Korea is about to be resolved without a shot being fired.  Guess what will happen to those generic ballot polls when that happy result comes about?  The small Democrat lead will disappear entirely, and by August you’re going to be seeing polls showing that measure has moved into the GOP’s favor.  Hell, at this rate, you might start seeing such polls in June.

But that’s not all that’s about to happen in the coming weeks and months.  The Mueller investigation is about to come to a head, and will be ultimately resolved with no legitimate charges filed against the President.  Mueller may end up writing a report in which he tries to provide the Democrats some basis for an impeachment effort – which has been the goal of this “investigation” since day 1 – but that won’t matter because the Democrats aren’t going to win back control of the House in November.

“But wait, there’s more!”, to quote the late, great Billy Mays.  We’re also about to see the issuance of the final report from DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz, and the subsequent issuance of grand jury subpoenas and indictments targeting – guess who? – not the Trump Administration, but a bunch of Clinton and Obama loyalists.

Bottom line, the 2018 mid-terms will definitely be a “sea-change” election, but not the “blue wave” kind the fake news media was loudly touting a few months ago.  No, the “sea-change” in this campaign will be the massive shift that takes place in the generic congressional ballot polling between last December and this coming November.

And the beauty of all of this is that the Democrat Party leaders are so stupid and out of touch that they decided last year to discard anything resembling a policy agenda and hang their Party’s entire future on promoting hatred for Donald Trump.

Isn’t life great?

Just another day in that Blue Wave ain’t gonna happen America.

That is all.

The Deep State has Won a Few Battles, but is Losing its War on Trump

The Evening Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

So, let’s review the evolution of the Deep State Cabal’s strategy to rid the D.C. establishment of this troublesome interloper, Donald J. Trump:

  • It began as an effort to fix the 2016 general election – devising a tortured rationale to let the Pantsuit Princes off the hook on her email crimes; spending millions on a fake Trump dossier designed to damage her opponent’s reputation; feeding debate questions to the Coughing Crook in advance; paying an assortment of women to come out of the woodwork to accuse Trump of having affairs in the weeks leading up to Election Day, etc., etc.
  • Having failed in that effort, it morphed into an effort to create so many leaks by Obama holdovers and other deep states inserts into the Administration that it would make it impossible for Trump to govern.  Trump and his few loyalists responded by doubling down on their agenda.
  • Having failed in that effort, it morphed in the spring of 2017 into the Rosenstein/Comey conspiracy to dummy up false grounds for the appointment of a Special Counsel in the person of their best buddy, Robert Mueller.  Mueller’s initial goal was to find criminal wrongdoing by the President.  The problem there was that there is no such crime called “collusion,” and no president can be prosecuted for exercising his constitutional authority, meaning there is no case to be made for “obstruction of justice.”  Trump and his loyalists doubled down on their agenda again.
  • Having failed in that effort, but with congressional preference polling late in 2017 indicating the Democrats had a chance to win control of the House of Representatives in the midterm elections, Mueller’s goal morphed into an effort to build a plausible case for impeachment, and to leak as much damaging information has he could to a cooperating national news media in order to drive down Trump’s public approval numbers.  If he and his media agents could drive the President’s approval ratings down into the low-30s or even into the 20s, even Republicans would likely be willing to vote for impeachment.  Thus, we saw the efforts to claim Trump is mentally unstable, then the efforts to claim his health is bad, then the former playmates and porn stars crawling out of the woodwork to claim 10-12 year-old affairs, and on and on.  Once again, Trump and his loyalists doubled-down on the agenda.

But a funny thing happened to Mueller on his way to this latest goal:  his tactics became so blatantly abusive, and the media’s efforts to justify them so transparently and laughably phony, that the public has become repulsed by the tactics, not the target.  That reaction to the abusive charade, combined with a booming economy and a raft of foreign policy achievements thought to have been unimaginable in the previous administration, has resulted in the President’s public approval ratings climbing to their highest level in 14 months.  In fact, in the daily Rasmussen survey – the lone periodic poll that focuses on likely voters – Mr. Trump’s approval as of today sits at 51%.

So, yet again, the Cabal’s strategy, as implemented by the Special Counsel, the deep state thugs embedded within DOJ and the FBI, and supported by the national fake news media, has miserably failed.

Recently, though, we’ve seen the strategy shift yet again.  The newest strategy, which appears to have been implemented around mid-March, is to viciously assault and character assassinate anyone loyal to Trump in order to ultimately make it impossible for Trump to find people willing to work for him, and thus make it impossible for him to govern.  Call it Chaos Strategy #2.

It started with Scott Pruitt, the extremely effective EPA Administrator, who has been the subject of a withering assault by disloyal EPA employees, the radical environmental community, and the fake news media.  The media effort has been led by the degenerates at the New York Times, who have now filed more than 60 hit pieces targeting Pruitt in the last month.  At one point a few weeks ago, it appeared that the President was preparing to cave to this media pressure and fire Pruitt, but changed his mind at the last minute and stood firm.

That will ultimately prove to be a crucial decision point in all of this.  Had Trump caved on Pruitt, then the walls may well have eventually fallen in around him, because other senior people under assault – like Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke and Chief of Staff John Kelly – might have lost confidence in the President having their backs and jumped ship.

This Chaos Strategy #2 is what the repulsive character assassination of Admiral Ronnie Jackson was about, it’s what the assault on new National Security Advisor John Bolton’s integrity was all about, it’s what the Senate Democrats’ demonization of Secretary of State Mike Pompeo was all about, it’s what the jack-booted raid on the home, office and hotel room of Trump attorney Michael Cohen was about, and it’s even what the White House Correspondents Dinners attacks on Sarah Huckabee Sanders and Kellyanne Conway were about.

Because Trump stood firm on Pruitt, this Chaos Strategy #2 is rapidly failing as well.  Yeah, they claimed a scalp with Admiral Jackson’s withdrawal, but today his main accuser, Vice President Mike Pence’s personal physician, Dr. Jennifer Pena, was forced to resign.  And yes, Cohen remains under assault, but there’s a long way to go on that situation as well.

Meanwhile, Bolton is the new National Security Advisor, Pompeo is now firmly ensconced as Secretary of State, Zinke is still reorganizing the Interior Department and its priorities, and Pruitt is still repealing the anti-American legacy of Barack Obama’s EPA.

So the Chaos Strategy #2 is failing as miserably as all the preceding Deep State strategies failed.  Meanwhile, prospects for the much-touted Democrat “Blue Wave” election wins in November are rapidly fading, the President is on the verge of one of the most astounding foreign policy victories in American history related to Korea, and the main report from DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz will be dropped within days.  That’s when the fun will really begin.

The Deep State’s gonna need another new strategy, and fast.

That is all.

The Walls Keep Closing in Around the Deep State Cabal

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Ok, lessee here, busy day yesterday….

Law enforcement officials caught the naked Waffle House shooter, and fortunately he had his pants on when they took him into custody.  What a strange, odd story that one is.

Another royal baby was born in London, and once again I can only marvel at how many Americans actually give a damn.  I don’t.

Poppy Bush is in the ICU at Houston Methodist hospital with a blood infection, just a few days after his wife Barbara was laid to rest.  One can only imagine the stress the 93 year-old former president has been through in the last week.  Here’s wishing him a full recovery – having been a heart patient at Houston Methodist myself, I know he literally could not be in better hands.

Kanye West is getting himself in all sorts of trouble with the Social Justice Warrior left for defending a black conservative woman’s – Candace Owens – right to speak her mind, and for saying he doesn’t hate President Donald Trump.  Hate is the life’s blood of the American left these days, so this is no surprise at all.

The makers of Yeti Coolers have gotten themselves in a world of trouble with their main consumer group – outdoorsmen – by cancelling some discount programs they had with the NRA.  By the time a Yeti spokesperson very predictably tried to calm the situation late on Monday by calling it all a “misunderstanding,” NRA fans had already mounted a protest called the Blow Up a Yeti Challenge, in which owners of Yeti coolers video themselves blowing the things up and posting the video on social media.

Meanwhile, I happened to be on the road yesterday, and stopped in at my favorite Buc-ee’s convenience store for some refreshment and a bathroom break.  While there, I took the shot below of the obvious solution to this problem:

RTIC coolers – half the price, every bit the performance as a Yeti.  And no, I don’t own stock in the company, though I probably should.

Kentucky Senator Rand Paul decided to do the right thing and vote to confirm Secretary of State nominee Mike Pompeo, sending Pompeo’s nomination to the floor of the Senate with a positive recommendation from the Senate Foreign Relations Committee.  Now all the red state Democrats facing tough re-election fights – are you listening, Joe Manchin? – get to decide whether they want to have a chance to win their races, or they want to continue acting as Chuck Schumer’s loyal toadies.  This Democrat tactic of opposing every nomination for the sake of opposing it is becoming extremely tiresome with independent voters.

The walls keep closing in on the Deep State Cabal. – A little-noticed passage in the report on Andrew McCabe by DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz is starting to make real news, at least in the 2% of the national news media that doesn’t function solely as press agents for the Democrat Party.  As reported in the Washington Times, this passage reveals the fact that McCabe, several weeks prior to Election Day 2016, was surprised to get an irate phone call from a “high level offical” in the Justice Department, demanding to know why the FBI was still pursuing its then-active investigation into the Clinton Crime Family Fake Foundation.

As described in the report, a call such as this, from a high DOJ official attempting to interfere in an active FBI investigation is highly unusual, and would have set off alarm bells had it taken place in a non- corrupted DOJ, which of course we did not have during the Obama years.  McCabe told investigators that his impression from the call was that DOJ was improperly trying to pressure the FBI on behalf of the Clinton Campaign.

What is so interesting about this particular incident is not that it took place, since this kind of corrupt behavior at the Obama DOJ was just par for the course, but that the call was made by a person the report identifies as the “principal associate deputy attorney general.”  It doesn’t take much grunt work to find out that the person with that particular job title at that point in time was one Matthew Axelrod, which is not in and of itself especially notable.

What is especially notable, however, is that the position of “principal associate deputy attorney general” reports to the “deputy attorney general” who, at that point in time was a person with the very recognizable name of… wait for it… Sally Yates!  Yes, friends, the same Sally Yates who served as acting attorney general for the first 10 days of the Trump Administration, the same Sally Yates whose name keeps popping up over and over and over again as a key participant in the deep state conspiracy to bring down the Trump presidency, the same Sally Yates who was unceremoniously fired by President Trump when she refused to enforce his initial travel ban.

That Sally Yates.  Trust me, we’ll be hearing a lot more about Ms. Yates in the coming weeks, as the plot to fix an election and then to kill a presidency continues to unravel, thread by despicable thread.

Connecting the dots on this deep state conspiracy is so damn fascinating.   Robert Ludlum couldn’t have made this stuff up.

Just another day in the deep state cabal keeps unraveling America.

That is all.

Trump and North Korea: Proof The Reagan Doctrine Works

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Barbara Bush, America’s matriarch, Rest In Peace.

Tired of all this Winning yet?  – It turns out that not everybody in California is crazy after all.  On Tuesday, the San Diego County board of supervisors became the latest local government to vote to support the Trump Administration’s lawsuit challenging the Golden State’s sanctuary state law.  The County joins neighboring Orange County and cities like San Juan Capistrano, Los Alamitos, Huntington Beach, Aliso Viejo, Mission Viejo and Escondido in opposing the state’s open borders law.

All of the cities and counties listed above are, of course, at the southern end of the state, and thus bear the brunt of the negative impacts of open borders policies advocated by Governor Jerry Brown and the state’s openly seditious Democrat Party.  Some may characterize these actions as futile gestures, but the intervention into lawsuits like this by impacted parties play a key role in the judicial process.  In this case, they show that there are still people in California who care about the good of the country as a whole, which is a very gratifying thing indeed.

When you appoint a true strict constructionist justice, you get strict constructionist decisions. – Many observers were surprised on Tuesday when the Supreme Court issued an immigration-related decision in which Trump appointee Neil Gorsuch sided with the four liberals on the court to deal the administration a setback.  The case revolved around how U.S. deportation law defines a violent crime for the purpose of deporting illegal immigrants to their home country.  Gorsuch joined the court’s liberal minority in ruling that the definition was overly vague and thus unenforceable under the Constitution.

Anyone who is surprised by his ruling should make themselves aware that, in 2015, the man Gorsuch replaced on the court, the late Antonin Scalia, ruled that similar language in a law imposing longer prison sentences on repeat offenders was also unconstitutional for the same reason.  Thus, while this decision by Gorsuch is inconvenient for the Trump administration, the fact that he ruled as he did should actually be encouraging to anyone who calls themselves a conservative.

Liberals opposed Gorsuch because they believed he would be a down-the-line strict constructionist, like Justice Scalia.  Turns out, they were right for once.

“In today’s news, North and South Korean end war, now back to rolling video of a porn star.” – Lost in all the fake news media frenzy over porn stars and Sean Hannity lawyers yesterday was the amazingly consequential announcement by South Korea leaders that they are meeting with the leaders of North Korea this week to change the 65 year-old armistice agreement between the two countries into the formal ending to the state of war between them.  After pretty much burying the story yesterday, the fake news media and Democrat paid liars will no doubt spend today trying to tell us all how Barack Obama somehow deserves credit for this amazing turn of events.

The truth, of course, is that everything Obama did related to the situation on the Korean peninsula during his 8 disastrous years in office simply made the situation worse, and this current easing of tensions there is purely President Trump’s doing.  Later in the day, the President also announced to the slack-jawed White House press corps of fake journalists that the administration was already engaged with North Korean emissaries in negotiations “at very high levels.”  Early this morning, the President tweeted that Secretary of State nominee Mike Pompeo had actually met with North Korea’s Crazy Little Fat Guy late last week, characterizing the meeting as having gone “very smoothly.”:

Obviously, we are still a long way from real denuclearization of the Korean peninsula, but there is real progress taking place in that direction, a progress that our three prior administrations spent a quarter of a century failing to advance.  There is no magic to any of this – what Trump has been doing with the Crazy Little Fat Guy is promoting the Reagan Doctrine of “Peace through strength.”  24 years of appeasement policies only emboldened and enabled the succession of three different Kim dictators to pursue their nuclear ambitions, pretty much with impunity.

Now that a leader of the United States has demonstrated clearly that this country is willing to confront not only North Korea, but also its benefactors in China on the matter, we see this sudden desire to engage in real negotiations.  Amazing how that works.  Well, amazing to liberals and fake journalists, anyway.

Just another day in appeasement never works America.

That is all.

Comey the Corrupt Drama Queen Gets His Media-fed Moment [Updated]

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Tired of all this Winning yet?  – Congressional Budget Office (CBO) economists now admit that the Trump tax cuts will more than pay for themselves.  In a report released yesterday – and studiously ignored by the fake news media, mainly because none of the CBO economists look like a porn star – the CBO now admits it vastly underestimated the tax cuts’ impact on economic growth, estimating that they will raise such growth by a full percentage point.

None of this is surprising, given that the CBO’s method requires them to use a “static” analysis, which does not allow them to take the economy-stimulating impacts of tax cuts into account.  The reality is that even CBO’s new analysis is likely to be extremely conservative due to that fact.

So all those Democrat/fake news media talking points about how the tax cuts are going to explode the deficit?  Just more lies.  But you already knew that.

Democrats in Action. – Mike Pompeo’s senate confirmation hearing to become our next Secretary of State began on Thursday, and lunatic New Jersey Senator Corey Booker zeroed in like a laser on the crucial foreign policy issue of the day:  During his allotted 5 minutes of time, Booker asked Pompeo not once, not twice, but three times about his views on…wait for it…oh, you gotta wait for this one…gay sex!  Yes, the very ambitious Mr. Booker, who plans to pursue the Democrat nomination for the presidency in 2020, thinks the most important thing he and the American people need to know about the guy who will likely become the nation’s chief diplomat is what he thinks about what gay people do in the privacy of their own bedrooms.

Somehow, I don’t think that particular issue is likely to come up during the upcoming negotiations with the Crazy Little Fat Guy in North Korea.  Just a guess.

Can’t they just secede from the union instead?  That would be much better. – The London Telegraph reports that activists in California have now moved a step closer to carving the Golden State up into three smaller states, thanks to the efforts of Hotmail founder Tim Draper.  Draper’s funding helped ensure that a petition effort was able to collect 600,000 signatures from California residents in favor of holding a referendum on the matter, far more than the needed 364,000, which represents approximately 1% of California’s current population.

Those of you who are worried about the prospect of adding 4 additional Californians along the lines of San Fran Nan, Maxine Waters, Dianne Feinstein or Kamala Harris to the U.S. senate can breathe easy, since, even if this referendum should succeed, it would require super-majority approval in both houses of congress to go into effect, and that isn’t going to happen.  It’s still fun to watch, though.

James Comey’s long-anticipated book hit the shelves on Thursday, and boy is it a doozy.  In the book, the bi-polar drama queen former ex-FBI Director and current Twitter savant says that President Trump is “untethered to the truth,” and acts like a mob boss.

It is fair to point out that this is the very same James Comey whose leadership turned the FBI into a rogue, outlaw organization, an organization that ignored its mandated duties in order to coordinate an effort to steal an election and, having failed at that, reverse its outcome.  This is the same James Comey who led a completely phony “investigation” into the Clinton email scandal, the same James Comey who wrote a memo exonerating the Pantsuit Princess of all charges four months before he had bothered to even interview her or any of her chief assistants.

This is the same James Comey who has committed perjury multiple times before congressional committees, the same James Comey who most likely ordered Andrew McCabe to forge his notes from his interview of General James Flynn, the same James Comey who we know leaked classified information to the New York Times and stole government property on his way out the door when he was fired.

In other words, were James Comey a witness to a murder, the prosecution’s lawyers would never call him to the stand to testify, because the defense lawyers would rip him to shreds and leave him crying like a little, 6’8″ tall girl.

I’ve often pointed out that the Clintons’ favorite political tactic is projection, i.e., whenever they’re guilty of some bad act, they deflect attention by accusing their opponents of exactly the same bad behavior.  Mr. Comey’s book demonstrates that he learned a lot from the Clintons while conducting his sham investigation.

Naturally, the first televised interview this deluded paragon of virtue will conduct about the book is with ABC’s fake host George Stephanopolous, who spent a decade serving as a toady for Bill and Hillary Clinton.  ABC’s promo ad for the interview shows Georgie tossing out a series of predictably softball questions to an apparently mute Comey.  If you play a drinking game during the interview in which you take a shot of tequila every time Comey is asked a tough question, you will end the night completely sober.  Because that’s what the fake news media does.

Just another day in fake news media and demented Democrats America.

That is all.

Update:  Just to prove that he reads the Campaign Update each and every morning, President Trump issued the following two tweets within 30 minutes of this piece going live:

 

So.  Damn.  Awesome.  Never, never, never, ever stop tweeting, Mr. President.  Please, never stop.

Trump Dropped Some Twitter Bombs Sunday Morning

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

While so many Trump supporters have spent the last couple of days tossing tantrums about the President’s decision to sign the horrible Omnibus spending bill, some good things have been happening without getting much notice from the fake news media.

Tired of all this Winning yet? – Just a few days after the mass school shooting in Parkland, Florida, I wrote a piece that laid much of the blame at the feet of an insane Obama-era policy that rewarded school administrators and law enforcement officials for refusing to enforce the law against students who engage in criminal activity.  In the ensuing weeks since, more and more people in the news media have begun to report on the scam.  Better late than never.

This growing attention level has now led to a positive outcome:  The Trump Administration announced on Friday that it will eliminate the Obama policy.  Just one more element of the insane, un-American Obama legacy falls by the wayside.

The fake news media really hasn’t paid much attention to this reality yet – it’s been too busy trying to whip the public into a gun-grabbing frenzy and reporting on a porn startlet – but with his staff moves over the last month, President Donald Trump has basically purged his team of senior advisors of globalists.

  • Senior Economic Advisor Gary Cohn – gone.  Replaced with the Reaganite Larry Kudlow.
  • Secretary of State Rex Tillerson – gone.  Replaced – if he can be confirmed – by CIA Director Mike Pompeo.
  • National Security Advisor H.R. McMaster – gone.  Replaced by John Bolton.

Assuming Pompeo is ultimately confirmed, the Trump Cabinet and team of senior advisors will basically be devoid of the open borders/new world order internationalist influence.  While it is true that Bolton is an interventionist who favors aggressive U.S. military involvement in civil wars all around the world, he is very much on board with the Trump plan to dramatically increase border security.

Bolton also promises to “clean house” once ensconced in the job, eliminating dozens of Obama holdovers and other internationalists who are not loyal to President Trump, according to a report at Foreign Policy on Saturday.  Taking this action will almost certainly eliminate many, if not most of the leaks coming from the White House, some of which have been criminal in nature.

Bottom line, 14 months into his first term, Trump is finally putting together the team of leaders he should have had in the first place.  Again, better late than never.

 

Early this morning, President Trump issued the following two tweets:

These tweets are potentially very important, particularly the last sentence in the first one:  “Build wall through M!”, the “M” standing for “Military.”

The federal budgeting process is very complex and arcane, and one thing to remember in this current situation is that this “Omnibus” spending bill is just that:  A spending bill, not a formal budget.  It is a compilation of suggested spending levels for each executive branch department and the military, along with an array of restrictions that dictate how some, but not all of that money can be spent.

It’s important to also remember in this context that, on December 21, the President took the step of declaring a national human rights emergency related to child-trafficking, a declaration that would allow Mr. Trump broad discretion in taking action to crack down on those who participate in such human rights abuses.  It’s key to note that much such child trafficking involves moving kidnapped children in and out of the United States of America.

A second point to note is that, on Friday, the President notified congress that, in signing the Omnibus, he is accepting the funds under the provisions of the Balanced Budget and Emergency Deficit Control Act of 1985.  This law also gives the President broad discretion in making decisions to refuse to spend funds that have been authorized by congress, as well as allowing him to reallocate spending priorities within the budgets of individual executive branch departments.

Finally, lets also note that, last October, the President declared a national emergency related to opioid abuse.

Now, read the text of that first tweet again, in the context of what is laid out above.  “Building a great border wall, with drugs (poison) and enemy combatants pouring into our Country, is all about National Defense.”  Combine that with “”Build wall through M!” and, it’s not unreasonable to think that Mr. Trump is at least considering the possibility of reallocating some portion of the beefed-up military budget to pay for building the wall along the southern border.

Doing that would of course create a media firestorm, but hell, what else is new?  And such a decision would also inevitably lead to a raft of lawsuits filed by leftwing activist groups before carefully-selected Obama-appointed federal judges, and possibly even a lawsuit from congress challenging the action.  But at the end of the day, such cases would have to go before the Supreme Court, where the President would most likely prevail, given the constitutional separation of powers.

As I’ve repeatedly pointed out, contrary to what the fake news media wants you to think, President Trump doesn’t just belch stuff out onto his twitter feed at random.  His tweets almost always have a purpose.  Often that purpose is to elicit a specific reaction from the fake news media.  Sometimes the purpose is to send up a trial balloon to gauge how the public would respond if he took a specific action.

I think Mr. Trump was doing both with those two tweets:  elicit a specific response from the media, and then gauge the public reaction to the media firestorm before deciding whether to move ahead.

 

Just another day in there really is good news out there if you look for it America.

That is all.

Tillerson Was the Best Sec. of State in a Decade; Pompeo Will Be Better

The Evening Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

So, what to make of the Rex Tillerson firing?  There’s a lot to unpack here, so I’ll try to do it in a fairly orderly fashion.

First, let’s state up front the undeniable truth that Rex Tillerson was the nation’s finest Secretary of State in a decade.  Unlike his two immediate predecessors in the job, Mr. Tillerson is a patriot, a lover of America, a believer in promoting American-style Democracy around the world and protecting U.S. national security at home.  He had no interest in selling America’s foreign policy to the highest bidder or in promoting radical Islam throughout the Middle East and other parts of the world.

So, we all owe Mr. Tillerson our thanks for his service, and an appreciation for the way in which he represented the country for the last 14 months.

That having all been said, no one should be surprised at all that he is being replaced in his job.  The fact of the matter is that Tillerson was not on the same page as the President he pledged to serve in too many ways to have lasted long in the office.  Here are some examples:

  • He is a big fan of the horrible deal the Obama Administration did with the terrorist supporing Mullahs in Iran, and consistently slow-played providing information to the President that was not positive towards keeping the agreement in place;
  • He was accused of having called the President a “moron” behind his back last summer, and refused to either deny or apologize for uttering that insult despite being repeatedly questioned about it.  Not a lot of employees are going to survive calling their boss a “moron” for very long;
  • He is a big believer in man-made “global warming” theory in an administration made up largely of skeptics, and was reportedly upset that the President cancelled U.S. participation in the Paris Climate Accords;
  • He has not at any point been supportive of President Trump’s approach to dealing with the Crazy Little Fat Guy in North Korea;
  • He has been slow to hire people to fill senior posts in the State Department and even slower to clean out the deep state holdovers from the Obama Administration.

There are other examples of Tillerson’s conflict with his boss, but those seem to be the main ones.  Quite simply, Tillerson is not a “Trump guy” and was never going to become one.

He will now be replaced by Mike Pompeo, the current CIA Director, who is a “Trump guy” and will be on board with the Trump program.  Coming out of his CIA role, Pompeo knows where all the bodies are buried, all over the world.  This is a guy who graduated first in his class at West Point, a mechanical engineer with a highly analytical mind who doesn’t take any BS off of anybody.

He has a law degree from Harvard, where he served on the law review.  He’s a three-term congressman from Kansas who served on committees with oversight related to energy, intelligence, business and commerce and the CIA, as well as the House Select Committee on Benghazi.

You probably won’t be seeing any reports about Pompeo calling his boss a “moron,” and if you do, you’ll see a quick and unambiguous denial  from Pompeo, because any such report will be a fabrication.  You won’t see Pompeo slow-walking anything negative towards the Iran deal, or slow-walking anything else, for that matter.  You won’t see Pompeo shedding tears about the Paris Accords or publicly at odds with the President over North Korea.

We all owe Tillerson our gratitude, and we should all be happy that Pompeo will be our new Secretary of State.  The Trump Administration just got stronger with this change.

When news of the Pompeo appointment became public, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer issued the following tweet, one which he probably thought would make all of his base of leftwing idiots happy as little clams:

But it turned out that not all leftwing idiots were happy after all.  The leftwing idiot who is the de facto propaganda minister for the Russian-supported anti-Fracking movement, Josh Fox, responded to Chuckie’s tweet with a little R-rated missive of his own:

So, as you can see, there is trouble in pinhead paradise.  No doubt, Schumer’s completely insincere reference to getting tough towards Putin and Russia is what really set Fox off.  After all, a guy’s got to make a living, right?  You cut that Russian funding off, why, the anti-fracking movement would have to find some honest money instead.  And that would be hard.

That is all.
