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

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

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

Homepage | National September 11 Memorial & Museum

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

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

Open the schools, you cowardly, rancid governors.

This concludes your CORONAPANIC UPDATE for today.

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

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

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

Here’s their headline:

Kansas City Chiefs fans’ booing at NFL opener proves controversial

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

The fans.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Seems legit, right?

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

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

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

That is all.

Ignored by Corrupt News Media, USMCA Takes Effect

In case you missed this bit of real news amid all of the false hysteria over COVID-19 and the fake story on the “Russia briefing” being spread by our corrupt news media, the U.S./Mexico/Canada Agreement (USMCA) took effect today. It’s a really big deal, for one reason no one likes to talk about.

From today forward, Canada and Mexico will no longer be able to ship goods made in China but assembled in their countries into the U.S. free of tariffs, a practice both countries had engaged in to the huge disadvantage of the U.S. for the previous 25 years under NAFTA. As of this moment, the only goods that qualify as “North American” under this trade agreement are those that are completely manufactured within the three countries that are party to the deal.

As such, the USMCA represents a great leap forward in the Trump policy of disentangling our country from China and the evil communist thug regime that rules that country.

Here is a statement issued by U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer today:

Washington, DC – The United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA) enters into force today, replacing the job-killing NAFTA failure and fulfilling a core promise President Trump made to the American people.

The USMCA, which President Trump successfully negotiated in 2018, rebalances trade between the three countries and will lead to significant economic and job growth in the United States.

At President Trump’s direction, U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer worked closely with Congress to win overwhelming bipartisan approval of the USMCA.

Ambassador Lighthizer issued the following statement about USMCA’s entry into force:

“Today marks the beginning of a new and better chapter for trade between the United States, Mexico and Canada – just as President Trump promised he would deliver for the American people.

“From day one of his Administration, President Trump has changed the focus of America’s trade policy away from what is best for big, multi-national corporations to instead what is best for America’s workers, farmers and ranchers.  That’s a monumental change.  His success in creating a bipartisan consensus on this new model for trade policy — in spite of the establishment critics who said it couldn’t be done — is truly remarkable.

“The USMCA contains significant improvements and modernized approaches that will deliver more jobs, stronger worker protections, expanded market access, and greater opportunities to trade for companies large and small.  We have worked closely with the governments of Mexico and Canada to ensure that the obligations and responsibilities of all three nations under the agreement have been met, and we will continue to do so to ensure the USMCA is enforced.

“The recovery from the Covid-19 pandemic demonstrates that now, more than ever, the United States must stop the outsourcing of jobs and increase our manufacturing capacity and investment here at home.  With the USMCA’s entry into force, we take another giant step forward in reaching this goal and advancing President Trump’s vision for pro-worker trade policies.”

[End]

God Bless America.

Trump Denies Pelosi her USMCA Photo-op

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

Better to have the pig farmers than the bleating pig herself. – At Wednesday’s signing ceremony for the huge US/Mexico/Canada Trade Agreement (USMCA), President Donald Trump ensured that representatives from the nation’s hog farmers were in attendance, given the deal’s heavy focus on pork and agricultural goods.

But here’s who he didn’t invite to be there the landmark agreement was signed into law:

After allowing many of her House Democrats vote for the bill along with the Republicans in December, Pelosi made a point of claiming to have forced “major revisions” to the initial draft that had been agreed-to by the Trump Administration. This of course was just another lie, as only a few minor provisions were modified during the negotiations in the House.

The Speaker desperately wanted to be seen as one of the architects of this major deal, because she and her House Majority have achieved literally nothing for the American people over the last year as they focused all of their efforts in mounting their idiotic coup d’etat. Pelosi no doubt coveted the chance to be standing behind the President at this ceremony so that her ghoulish face, complete with rebellious dentures, would make it into the photo-ops. That would have provided Democrat members running in swing districts a visual to show to constituents.

President Trump was not about to give her that satisfaction, given that she needlessly held this important deal up for well over half a year, purely for political leverage. In fact, the President did not invite a single Democrat to the ceremony, which is entirely appropriate given that not a single Democrat helped in making it a reality, a stark contrast to the NAFTA negotiations in the 1990s, which were a completely bipartisan effort.

This, folks, is WINNING, bigly.

This is what the never-ending coup d’etat has wrought. – While the corrupt news media, in its role as the propaganda organ for the Deep State, will excoriate the President for refusing to have any Democrats in attendance, everyone should remember that when he first came into office, Mr. Trump bent over backwards to establish cordial relations with Pelosi, Schumer and other key Democrats. All of those efforts were steadfastly rebuffed.

What President Trump received in return for that outreach was the back of the hand from every Democrat in the D.C. Swamp, and the continuation of the unending efforts to demonize and de-legitimize him that had come at him during the 2016 campaign. Still, the President has persevered in efforts to find ways to work with Pelosi and Schumer, inviting them for frequent meetings at the White House, events where Pelosi consistently tossed fits and stormed out to hurl accusations at Trump to the eager press corps camped outside.

Indeed, the only times Pelosi did not employ that particular tactic have come when President Trump insisted on allowing the press corps to remain present for the full meeting, an unprecedented step he has taken on several occasions specifically to pressure the depraved Speaker to behave.

Unsurprisingly, the President’s efforts towards bipartisanship came to a halt when Pelosi decided to conspire with Adam Schiff to mount the ridiculous impeachment scam. It’s pretty difficult for any president to try to work with people so mendacious and desperate that they would eagerly put the nation through the circus that has now lasted for four long months.

Thus, San Fran Nan didn’t get her photo op yesterday, as the most important trade deal of the 21st Century was signed into law. It was the reward she had richly earned.

That is all.

The Fake Media Disgraces Itself In The Wake Of The President’s Speech

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Your fake news media in action!  – President Trump gave a 9 minute speech on the need for ramped-up border security Tuesday night, and in response, the Associated Press disgraced itself with a “report” on the speech that is so biased that it reads like the work of a 14 year-old writing for the local jr. high newspaper.

The AP report’s very first sentence claims that the President’s speech “was heavy with dark immigration rhetoric but offered little in the way of concessions or new ideas”. The word “dark” has long been one of the fake media/Democrat coalition’s favorite words to describe any proposal or language coming from any GOP president going all the way back to Ronald Reagan. It obviously polls well for them.

The third paragraph of the AP piece dutifully recites the Democrats’ top-line talking point, accusing the President of “appealing to ‘fear, not facts’ and manufacturing a border crisis for political gain.” The AP makes no attempt to analyze the accuracy – or lack thereof – of those accusations by Democrats.  Because of course it doesn’t.

The fifth paragraph is an ode to the Democrat talking points on the partial government “shutdown” which really isn’t a shutdown at all, stating that Mr. Trump “addressed the nation as the shutdown stretched through its third week, with hundreds of thousands of federal workers going without pay and some congressional Republicans growing increasingly jittery about the spreading impact of the impasse.”

Fact:  No federal employee has at this point missed a paycheck due to this “shutdown.”  Not one.

Paragraph #7 accuses the President’s re-election campaign of raising money related to the border crisis, as if that is something unusual.  Politicians of both parties regularly use major public events and crises as events to send out fundraising letters.  It happens all the time, and is hardly a newsworthy event.  The AP would have never dreamed of mentioning this during the Obama years.

Paragraphs #9, #10 and #11 recite more Democrat talking points. You can read them for yourself.

Paragraph #12 is a doozy:  “In his dire address, Trump ticked off a string of statistics and claims to make his case that there is a crisis at the border, but a number of his statements were misleading, such as saying the new trade deal with Mexico would pay for the wall, or suggesting through gruesome examples that immigrants are more likely to commit crime.”

Note the use of the word “dire”, an editorial comment that has no place in a “news” report.  Then there’s the claim that the President was “misleading” in accurately stating that the new trade deal with Mexico will in fact pay for the wall, which it will do many times over in the coming years.  That trade agreement is far more favorable to the U.S. than NAFTA, and will have a significant stimulative impact on the U.S. economy.  The AP is lying here, plain and simple.

That final passage, “suggesting through gruesome examples that immigrants are more likely to commit crime” is yet another AP lie.  An outright, intentional misleading of its audience.  First, the President NEVER claims that “immigrants” are “more likely to commit crime.”  Never.  Not one time.

President Trump does, however, claim that ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS are more likely to commit crime in the U.S., which is unarguably true, and which Barack Hussein Obama and Hillary Clinton have also correctly pointed out during their careers. The AP is fully aware of this unarguable FACT, but of course omits it from its fake reporting.

Paragraph #13 is another doozy of fake-newsery.  First sentence:  “Trump, who has long railed against illegal immigration at the border, has recently seized on humanitarian concerns to argue there is a broader crisis that can only be solved with a wall.” In fact, candidate Donald Trump “seized” on humanitarian concerns over the border crisis throughout his 2015 and 2016 presidential campaign.  Time after time after time, in dozens of campaign rallies all across the country.

Somehow, the AP missed it.  Go figure.

Second sentence: “But critics say the security risks are overblown and the administration is at least partly to blame for the humanitarian situation.” “Critics” = Democrats. More talking points, which the AP makes no attempt to analyze in the editorial fashion it reserves for Republicans.

Paragraph #14 accuses the President of using “emotional language” to describe horrific murders and rapes committed in recent years by illegal immigrants, crimes the AP has done its best to studiously ignore, like the recent murder of a California law enforcement officer by an illegal immigrant who had been given sancutary by the Democrat Party’s policies in that state.

Paragraph #15 repeats the outright deception about “immigrants” being less likely to commit crimes, leaving out the word “illegal”, which the AP knows is the true focus of the President’s concerns.

In between those last two paragraphs is a chart that shows the yearly apprehensions along our Southwest border.  This chart was published in early 2018 by the U.S. Customs and Border Patrol.  It shows that border apprehensions fell dramatically during President Trump’s first year in office, as potential immigrants became discouraged at the loss of the Obama Administration’s welcoming hand. The AP dishonestly presents this as some sort of proof that there is no crisis at our border.

What the AP report studiously ignores is the well-documented reality that border apprehensions rose dramatically during 2018, as leftist groups in the U.S. ramped up their efforts to organize caravans of immigrants to assault the border. Indeed, apprehensions in May, 2018 were 400% higher than those recorded in April, 2017.

That’s a crisis.

The rest of the AP report is equally disgraceful, but I’m running out of space here.

Our reality is this: There is indeed a crisis at our Southern border. It exists due to 30 years of idiotic open borders policies enacted by a succession of globalist presidents working with pliable congresses, supported by a string of court decisions issued by lawless leftist federal judges. The result of all of that horrific policy-making and court-deciding is that, once illegal immigrants cross into our country it is now virtually impossible for our government to send them back to their home country.

The leaders of the Democrat Party love this situation – despite all of the human- and drug-trafficking and massive human misery that comes along with it – because they view these new illegal aliens as a gigantic future voting bloc. Many U.S. business interests love this situation because they enjoy the cheap labor.  It’s cynical and disgraceful and it is destroying our society.

The only way to effectively combat the situation is to prevent the waves from entering the country in the first place, because once they are here, very few are ever returning home.  The most effective way to prevent their entry is with a wall, plain and simple.

This is a crisis the Democrats and establishment Republicans have created, and it is a crisis President Trump was elected to resolve.

Our fake news media will never tell you any of this, because none of it is in the approved narrative they’ve coordinated with the Democrats in Washington.  But this is our reality, and it is simply unsustainable.

God Bless President Trump for trying to do something about it.

That is all.

Trump Disrupts Democrat War on U.S. Workers With New NAFTA Deal

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Hey, remember when all the “experts” were telling you that President Donald Trump could not possibly successfully renegotiate the 25 year-old NAFTA deal? – Yeah, they were wrong about that, too.

The new name’s a little clumsy, but the deal is done, and the deal is much, much better for America’s workers, especially those in blue collar, farming and union jobs.  Hey, remember when those were the kind of jobs the Democrat Party used to at least pretend to care about?  Yeah, good times…

Today, as you absorb the no-doubt slanted news about this new trade agreement, remember that the very same “experts” who told you this could not be done are also telling you that Donald Trump will never, never, never, ever be able to really get the Crazy Little Fat Guy in North Korea to de-nuclearize the Korean Peninsula.  Do not be surprised when the successful completion of that effort is a major plank in Trump’s re-election campaign in 2020.

The Teenage Drama Queen gets a by-line in the New York Times, and boy is it a hoot. – Former FBI Director and current teenage drama queen James Comey penned an op/ed for the sad old New York Times on Sunday, because of course he did.  The most corrupt director the agency has ever had slammed the mounting of this week-long FBI investigation into all the absurd accusations directed at Judge Brett Kavanaugh, not be cause the charges are so obviously false, not because the Judge has already been the subject of 6 previous in-depth, open-ended FBI background checks, but because…wait for it…you can’t “put a shot clock” on an FBI investigation.

In other words, the very same corrupt, pathological liar who twice put a strict shot clock on the agency’s sham “investigation” into Hillary Clinton’s illegal email server has of course joined the Democrat chorus against the week-long time frame for this investigation that the Democrats agreed to just 3 days ago.  There are perfectly descriptive words for James Comey, but I just can’t use them here.

Sunday’s @GDBlackmon Twitter Deep Thought…

Hey, you know it’s true.

Meanwhile, in the Texas Senate Race… – Last Thursday, when it looked like the Senate would be held into session over the weekend to deal with the Kavanaugh nomination, Ted Cruz informed Irish Bob O’Rourke that he would not be able to make it to Houston for their scheduled debate early Sunday evening.  On Saturday morning, Cruz notified Irish Bob that he could in fact make it to Houston thanks to the idiotic machinations of Arizona Senator Jeff Flake, but Irish Bob declined, saying he now had made other “plans.”

So, what was Irish Bob doing at the very time the debate was supposed to be taking place?  Why, he was engaged in an hour-long Facebook Live session from his kitchen.

Obviously, Irish Bob still hasn’t figured out how he’s going to backtrack from his false denial of leaving the scene of the wreck he caused while driving drunk back in the 1990s.  Until he does, we probably won’t be seeing any more debates between the two Texas senate candidates.

Back to the Kavanaugh nomination process one more time. – So, the Democrat playbook for this week is now clear…

  • Agree to a limited FBI investigation to last no more than one week;
  • Spend the weekend wailing that the investigation is tooooooooooo liiiiiiiiimmmmittttteeeeeddddd!!!;
  • Find male “acquaintances” of Judge Kavanaugh from high school and college to tell Democrat media activists that the Judge, when a teenager, was a sloppy drunk;
  • Pretend it’s a really big deal that the FBI is questioning the second, obviously lying, female accuser;
  • Have the Dragon Lady from Hawaii all over TV claiming that the investigation is “falling apart” before it even gets started in earnest;
  • And then, late in the week – probably Wednesday night or sometime Thursday – have another female accuser crawl out of the woodwork with more false allegations; or
  • Maybe even have some leftwing activist parent of one of the kids Kavanaugh has coached in basketball over the years appear on CNN or MSNBC and accuse him of being a pedophile.

Or maybe both new accusations will come.  Remember that the Democrats’ favorite Saul Alinskly tactic is “projection,” i.e., accusing the Republicans of the exact behaviors of which they themselves are guilty.  Thus, accusations of pedophilia are pretty much inevitable, and indeed the leftists at USA Today already ran an op/ed implying that of Kavanaugh as an initial shot across the bow.

These people are demented, depraved and despicable, and nothing is beneath them.  To them, this is a war, literally.  It is a war not just on Judge Kavanaugh, not just on President Trump, not just on Republicans, but on all Americans who are not part of one of their aggrieved classes.  Frankly, it has even become a war on many of them – witness the bullying and booing of Kanye West that took place during his appearance on Saturday Night Live this past weekend.

This is not your father’s Democrat Party.  There are no moderates in that party anymore, no Scoop Jackson Democrats or even Lloyd Benson Democrats.  It is only possible to see their true nature with clear eyes when you accept the reality that there simply are no more decent people in the national Democrat Party today.  Not one.

These people are all about one thing:  The re-acquisition of power.  They will do literally anything to achieve that goal.  So buckle up, and don’t be surprised by the depravity to come this week.

That is all.

While the Fake News Media Focuses on Flag Etiquette, Trump Keeps Winning

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

But…but…but…all the “smart” people at CNN and the NYTimes assured me this could not happen. – When President Donald Trump (I never tire of typing those three words) announced on Monday that his administration had reached a new trade agreement with Mexico that would replace NAFTA, he didn’t leave the accurate reporting of it to the whims of the fake news media.  Knowing that if he just made a statement about his final call with Mexico’s President Enrique Pena Nieto to seal the deal, he would soon be facing anonymously-sourced fake news stories from CNN and the New York Times claiming that he insulted Mr. Nieto or his wife, or perhaps his dog, the President chose a different approach:  He simply invited the White House press corps into the Oval Office to listen to his call with Nieto live, as it took place.

Thus, fake news averted, for the most part, although fake news outlets like Reuters managed to report on the deal while leaving out mention of the most key parts of it, such as the new requirement that manufacturers of automobiles and other hard products in Mexico give their workers collective bargaining rights for the first time.  Another critical provision, that 45% of auto parts made in Mexico must be made by workers earning at least $16 per hour, also received short shrift from the fakest fake news outlets like CNN and the Times.

These toady outlets for the Democrat Party are loath to accurately report on these aspects of the new deal since they represent gigantic wins for America’s blue collar workers, workers who were just a few years ago a major cog in the Democrat Party’s voter base.  Under this new agreement, those workers will no longer have to compete with Mexican workers making $1 per hour in order to hold onto their jobs.

Interestingly, as I type this piece this morning, Fox News is airing a clip of then-candidate Barack Hussein Obama, in a Democrat primary debate on August 7, 2007, advocating for exactly the reforms to NAFTA that are contained in this new agreement, in order to “protect American workers.”  Thus does Donald Trump not only keep his own campaign promises, he keeps the promises made – and broken – by America’s Biggest Mistake.

WINNING WINNING WINNING WINNING WINNING WINNING. – The markets kind of liked the news of the agreement with Mexico.  The NASDAQ went berserk, closing above the 8,000 mark for the first time ever.  The S&P 500 also closed at a record high of 2,896, while the Dow Jones Industrial average gained 259 points to close above 26,000 for the first time since February 1.

Democrats and fake journalists all across America fell into fits of depression at this happy news for everyone else.

This is Donald Trump, preparing to make like Teddy Roosevelt. – A few weeks ago, the Campaign Update focused on how President Trump might conduct a new strategy for his second two years in office should the Democrats gain control of one or both houses of congress in the upcoming midterm elections.  The piece, titled “Trump’s Post-Midterm Move:  Make Like Teddy Roosevelt”, posited that a Donald Trump faced with a hostile congress that would stonewall any new legislation might decide to focus on using the powers of his office and regulatory agencies to rein in the abuses of social media giants like Facebook, Twitter and Google, which are without question today’s version of the industrial “trusts” that Mr. Roosevelt faced down and broke up at the turn of the 20th century.

This wasn’t just mere speculation on my part:  It’s a well-educated guess based on the President’s past statements and demeanor in office thus far.  This morning, Mr. Trump gave us a preview of potential coming attractions via his Twitter feed:

Over the past couple of weeks, the President has also fired similar shots across the bows of Facebook and Twitter.  As the Campaign Update has pointed out many times over the past 20 months, Mr. Trump doesn’t just burp these tweets out between sips of Diet Coke for no reason.  Every tweet he sends is sent for a tactical purpose, and many turn out to be stage-setters for actions he plans to take.

The powers of the presidency, when focused by an extremely strong personality like Donald Trump, can be a very daunting opponent for even the most gigantic corporation to face off with.  Standard Oil learned this lesson the hard way about 115 years ago.  The creeps who have set themselves up as the arbiters of free speech and restricters of the public’s right to know at these social media giants might want to start paying attention to the messages they are being sent by this particular President and start adjusting their practices accordingly.

But they won’t.

Just another day in fake news media and abusive social media America.

That is all.

President Trump is Laying the Groundwork for Executive Action on the Border Situation

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

There is just no good reason why any average citizen needs to own g…er…knives? – The murder rate in London surpassed that of New York City for the first time ever in February, as Islamic-driven knife killings continue to grow in the gun-banning metropolis.  As of this writing, no one at CNN had asked David Hogg for his views on London’s pressing need to ban knives.  But it seems to be just a matter of time.

Speaking of the ever-more annoying Mr. Hogg, he’s gonna have some ‘splainin’ to do with his CNN masters next time he goes in for an interview.  That’s because on Sunday he made the mistake of posing for a photo with Javier Manjarres, a Republican congressional candidate who is challenging Democrat incumbent Ted Deutch.

As if the sin of paling around with a – gasp! – Republican wasn’t damning enough in the eyes of everyone at the fakest of all fake news outlets, Hogg’s error was made even more unforgivable by the fact that Manjarres was wearing a t-shirt that depicts President Donald Trump urinating on the CNN logo (see below).  Oh, my, CNN might have to go find itself another gun-banning teenager to exploit.

Headlines we never saw during the Obama years… – The Wall Street Journal reports that the big economic issue facing Iowa and much of the rest of the American midwest is that there are too many jobs and not enough workers to fill them.

According to the Journal:

“It is a problem playing out in many parts of the Midwest, a region with lower unemployment and higher job-opening rates than the rest of the country. Employers, especially in more rural areas, are finding that there are just too few workers. That upends a long-running view in Washington, D.C., and many state capitals, where policy makers often say the unemployed simply lack the skills to get hired.”

Should the pace of economic growth and job creation experienced in the 14 months of the Trump Administration continue for another 14 months, this midwest-based “problem” will inevitably spread to other parts of the country.  This is an almost inevitable outcome as the overall economy approaches full employment.

Of course, there will be exceptions to the rule, isolated pockets of the country where chronic unemployment levels will persist and people will remain addicted to the public dole.  Those pockets of economic under-performance are easy to predict:  They go by names like Chicago, Washington, DC, Baltimore, Detroit, Los Angeles, San Francisco, New Orleans, Philadelphia and other big cities that have been governed by Democrats for decades.  It’s the way Democrat politicians like it to be.

DACA is dead, and NAFTA could be next, if Mexican officials don’t act to halt the caravan of more than 1200 Central American nationals that has been making its way through their country unimpeded over the last few days.  At least, that’s what President Trump said on his Twitter feed yesterday and early this morning, and as we have seen so many times in the past, the President doesn’t just toss stuff like this out there for no good reason.

The tweet storm began on Sunday morning, with these two Presidential messages:

“Border Patrol Agents are not allowed to properly do their job at the Border because of ridiculous liberal (Democrat) laws like Catch & Release. Getting more dangerous. “Caravans” coming. Republicans must go to Nuclear Option to pass tough laws NOW. NO MORE DACA DEAL!”

and..

“Mexico is doing very little, if not NOTHING, at stopping people from flowing into Mexico through their Southern Border, and then into the U.S. They laugh at our dumb immigration laws. They must stop the big drug and people flows, or I will stop their cash cow, NAFTA. NEED WALL!”

Mr. Trump expanded on this theme with three more tweets this morning, concluding with:

“DACA is dead because the Democrats didn’t care or act, and now everyone wants to get onto the DACA bandwagon… No longer works. Must build Wall and secure our borders with proper Border legislation. Democrats want No Borders, hence drugs and crime!”

So, after 7 months of publicly holding out hope that the cynical Democrats might want to make a deal in which DACA gets extended in exchange for wall funding and other immigration reforms, the President has finally figured out that the Dems never had any intention of making any such deal, preferring instead to keep the DACA kids in limbo so they can exploit the issue in the November midterm elections.  Ok, he knew that all along, but it’s good to see him abandoning all pretense, and calling things as they really are.

The problem the President has here is that there is literally no reason at all to expect the Senate Republicans to “go nuclear” or even lift a finger at all in an effort to change the immigration laws.  At least half of the GOP caucus in the senate favors chain migration and the insane “diversity lottery” system in their eagerness to attract campaign money from the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.

Sadly, it is up to the President alone to stop the ongoing invasion coming across our southern border.  If the President wants to build his long-promised wall, he’ll have to find a way to get it done using his emergency powers and the defense budget, as we discussed last week.  Expecting Paul Ryan and Mitch McConnell to do anything about it is just a waste of time and energy.

Given the President’s past use of his Twitter feed as a prelude to taking action, we should expect him to take some form of emergency executive action to address the border situation in the coming days.

Just another day in the southern invasion continues and congress doesn’t care America.

That is all.
