The Democrat Party is in Need of an Old-Fashioned Purge

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

Guest Piece by Gregg Updike

The fundamental problem with the Democratic Party is that for decades they have been actively recruiting every disparate minority group they can find or create – most of whom have an axe to grind – and have tried to cobble together a majority of minorities as a means to win elections against America’s white majority. There was an article in a major newspaper, circa 2011, during the “One’s” ramp up for reelection in 2012 reflecting this strategy.

The DNC, Obama, and the MSM, after successfully guilting white America into voting for a “historic” (half) Black president who was “articulate and bright and clean”, realized they were in trouble after they overwhelmingly lost the House in 2010.  This was the direct result of ramming his unpopular and entirely partisan passed Obamacare down America’s collective throat, and resulted in the emergence of the TEA (Taxed Enough Already) Party, and other anti-Obama organizations.

Obama, having lost much of the warm and fuzzy good-will that swept him into the presidency, and political capital, made the decision to jettison the idea of appealing to the country’s white majority middle class (the people who Hillary Clinton would later describe as an “irredeemable basket of deplorables”).  The Dems essentially said they are no longer interested in, nor will they any longer court the white male blue-collar union base that was the strength of the Dem party since FDR.   Presently the Democratic coalition is a motley collection of diverse (root word of diverse is divide) groups which has no core unifying glue or message to hold it together except that Trump and Republicans suck, and must be politically defeated.

This cultivated strategy is beginning to backfire on them in a spectacular manner.  Their radical groups are not silent obedient toadies and actually want their point of view heard, respected, and acted upon.  Unfortunately for the Dems, many of these points of view are diametrically opposed to each other.  Examples: Muslims are vehemently opposed to homosexually, legal immigrants and naturalized citizens are opposed to illegals getting a free ride, and big banks and capitalism are lined up against Bernie’s communism.

Meanwhile, President Trump, by displaying heretofore unseen strong common sense leadership, has exposed the fraud of the Democratic Party for all to see.  He has successfully exposed them, his agenda has been beneficial for ALL Americans, and he is destroying their media and academia controlled PC thought police monopoly.  That is why he is so hated by the left and the never-Trumper Republicans, and why they are working so hard to sabotage his administration and remove him from office, or make him unelectable.  It has completely failed and made Trump’s reelection all but certain, especially when his potential opponents are considered.

Bottom line: The person who could unite the Democratic Party simply doesn’t exist, while Trump has been historically successful in uniting his Republican base and attracting many previously Democratic minority groups who have realized they have been used by the Democratic Party and are #Walk(ing) Away in large numbers.  Consequently the DNC finds itself in quite a pickle.

If I were running the DNC, I would do the following:

Let Sanders win the nomination and then suffer a 1972 McGovern-like defeat, along with massive down ballot losses, thereby forcing the radical communists out of the party – we gave you a legitimate shot and you lost bigly; now be gone and go back the Communist Party USA and be the 3% irrelevant population splinter group that you are and have always been.

(The GOP suffered massive losses in 1974 and 1976 in the wake of Nixon’s Watergate, but rebounded by 1980 with Ronald Reagan and his coattails.  Face reality, take your lumps, learn, and move on.)

Get rid of the Clintons and their toxic influence in the party.

Divorce your party from the idiotic Hollywood crowd – their influence is waning and they are every bit as toxic as the Clintons.

Purge the party of all the old fossilized war horses who appeal to no one, particularly the millennials.  This election will help in their retirements by securing long term minority status for the Democratic Party. It is not fun to be in the minority in congress and the old guard will get out while the getting is good and retire with their millions.

Find and recruit some moderate, pragmatic, appealing, and intelligent candidates who fundamentally see the good in America as founded, and run on and actually believe in a positive pro-America agenda, as John F. Kennedy did in his 1960 campaign.

While most of the congressional old guard will willingly leave once they realize their minority party status for the foreseeable future is a reality, the young radical activists in the “Squad” and other divisive factions will need to be primaried or relegated to impotence with minor committee assignments and have their campaigns defunded by the DNC.

I realize leaders of the Democratic Party will never do this, and thus they will become more and more irrelevant, which is a good thing for America.  I predict the Democratic Party brand will be irreparably damaged, and break up.  When that happens, a new party will emerge with new leadership and a new message.  It will no doubt be liberal, but it will be, at least at first, a reasonable counter to a more conservative Republican Party; a Republican Party which will also be forced to undergo its own metamorphosis and evolve into a genuine conservative party.

The media will also be forced to reform itself, or it will ultimately die with a viewership of only about ten percent of the country watching or believing them.  Sooner or later, the outside money propping them up will dry up and they will have to compete for advertising dollars by being truthful and “fair and balanced”.  To that end NPR and NPT should be defunded as they are obsolete, serve no purpose and need to be forced to stand on their own merits; taxpayers don’t need to be forced to fund a liberal-lite mouthpiece that has a smaller audience than CNN.

 

That is all.

Now the Climate Scammers are Coming for Your Homes

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

Seriously, how much WINNING can one nation take?  – Believe it or not, the NASDAQ did not close at a new record high on Friday, falling slightly to break an 11-trading day winning streak. But the S&P 500 and Dow Jones Industrials did manage new record closings, making Friday yet another banner day for investors. The WINNING truly never grows old.

The Enviro-Marxists are now coming for your homes. – As we come to the end of 2019, it is only appropriate that the radical leftist climate change lobby signals its clear intent to deprive you of yet another basic human liberty: The right to own your own home.

After all, 2019 was the year in which the insane Green New Deal introduced by the insane Alexandria Ocasio Cortez proposed to deny you the right to travel by air, own your own automobile, enjoy affordable power and home heating bills and eat beef – due to all the cow farts, you know. It was the year in which, during the summer, the climate alarmists began to mount an organized, global effort to deprive those who can afford them of any vacations that involve long-haul flights. It was the year that a George Soros-funded New York State Attorney General’s office attempted to convince a court to hold ExxonMobil responsible for knowing about “climate change” a full quarter century before anyone actually knew about it, only to be laughed out of the room by the state’s own supreme court.

So, at the end of a year such as this one, you had to figure it was inevitable that the Enviro-Marxist left would end it with yet another assault on free enterprise and Americans’ civil liberties.  Hey, it’s what these people do.

Writing at the communist publication The Nation, some urban planner from…wait for it….California – because of course this nitwit is from California – named Kian Goh is now proposing that it would be just a peachy idea for the government to end the basic American right to own private property in general, and single-family homes specifically. Because, climate change, or something.

You can tell just from reading the title of Mr. Goh’s piece – “California’s Fires Prove the American Dream Is Flammable” – that it’s going to be a smorgasbord of Enviro-Marxist fright tactics wedded to openly Marxist policy proposals, and Goh does not disappoint, oh, no. All you really need to know about the piece, in fact, is contained in the subhead that reads, “If we want to keep cities safe in the face of climate change, we need to seriously question the ideal of private homeownership.”

Oh. Sounds legit, right? Well, it does if you are a hopelessly ignorant nitwit who wants to the government to dictate every step you take every day of your life, which sadly describes roughly 40% of the U.S. population today, and about 90% of the employees in the nation’s corrupt news media.

I’m old enough to remember when leftist Democrats pretended to be all for individual rights to home ownership. That was waaaayyyyyyyyyyyyy back in the…wait for it … 1990s when Bill Clinton was forcing Fannie May and Freddie Mac to give mortgage loans to pretty much anyone who wanted one, even to those who manifestly could not afford them. Because, fairness, or something. That, by the way, was also the administration of Vice President Al Gore, the scam artist who has profited perhaps more than anyone on earth from pushing the climate scam during the 21st century.

But that’s all changed now and Mr. Goh is the new left’s poster child. Goh’s basic thesis is to use the issue of California wildfires as a tool to attack private housing. He is especially against building individual homes in rural areas, basically because they’re, er, flammable. Oh, yeah, and he’s also opposed to – you’ll never guess – “cheap energy”, i.e., affordable utility bills:

The growth of urban regions in the second half of the 20th century has been dominated by economic development, aspirations of home ownership, and belief in the importance of private property. Cities and towns have expanded in increasingly disperse fashion, fueled by cheap energy.

His proposed solution is, of course, less individual freedom, replaced by government command-and-control, i.e., Marxism:

To engage with these challenges, we need to do more than upgrade the powerlines or stage a public takeover of the utility companies. We need to rethink the ideologies that govern how we plan and build our homes.

Next, he plays the race card in a transparent attempt to curry favor with minorities:

In and around so many cities, new building technologies, racist lending practices, systemic criminalization of the poor and people of color, and uneven patterns of “creative destruction”—that is, cycles of investment and disinvestment across city centers and suburbs—favored one kind of residential development: single-family houses for those deemed qualified, which typically meant white, middle-class families.

So predictable. So tiresome. So utterly Alinskyite.

The next step in this paint-by-the-numbers leftist climate alarm piece is of course to blame the fires on “climate change” even though the frequency and intensity of U.S. forest fires has in fact fallen since all the climate alarmism as a stalking horse for Marxism began in the late 1980s:

The valorizing of homeownership and property rights results not only in increased exposure to climate-change-fueled fires, but also in our inadequate responses to them.

Then he goes on to signal the next step to come in this Enviro-Marxist campaign to deprive Americans of their rights: The assault on individual rights to own homes on the coast:

Discussions have surged over the last two years about the need for coastal communities to retreat further inland as they face rising sea levels—a seemingly more imminent threat. How should we broach the more uncertain risks of fire?

This dude has your future all planned out for you, you just don’t know it yet.

And here comes the money paragraph, the paragraph in which Goh very predictably exposes himself as a supporter of The Commie, Bernie Sanders, who has chosen to enlist Alexandria Ocasio Cortez and her Green New Deal as his campaign’s mascot:

There are other options, in theory: Rental housing serves many cities around the world well, although we should be wary about perpetuating the power of landlords in this country without delinking ownership from wealth creation. There has been resurgent interest in government-planned and -built public housing, including recent legislation proposed by Ilhan OmarAlexandria Ocasio-Cortez, and Bernie Sanders that would shore up and invigorate the federal system. The Green New Deal invokes prior eras of government intervention, lending itself to revitalized thinking about the social value of public goods.

The Climate Scam always has been and always will be a stalking horse for the global implementation of Marxist-style socialism. Every suggested “solution” ever offered by any adherent to Climate Change religious dogma has, without exception, involved a Soviet-style command-and-control central government depriving individuals of their rights and prosperity.

The right to own personal property was enshrined by the founders of this country because they understood that it was a crucial tool in maintaining personal freedom. As such, it should surprise no one that the climate scammers would seek to deprive Americans of that key right, along with their liberty and pursuit of happiness.

They are telling you everything they want to do to you, folks – all you have to do is read and listen.

That is all.

Woman Takes Green New Deal to Logical Conclusion, AOC Doesn’t Even Blink

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

“Eat the babies” is trending on Twitter this morning. You’ll never guess why. Ok, maybe you will. – In case you were not already aware that climate extremists are brainwashed religious cultists with severe mental and emotional issues, check out this clip from Wednesday evening’s town hall meeting in Corona, New York, hosted by Democrat organ grinder monkey Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez:

In case you can’t understand everything the woman is saying through her heavy accent – which might be real or could be feigned – here is a transcript of her wild remarks:

“We not gonna be here for much longer, ’cause of the climate crisis. We only have a few months left! I love that you support the Green Deal but it’s not, but it’s not gonna, getting rid of fossil fuel is not gonna solve the problem fast enough! A Swedish professor saying we can eat dead people [takes off jacket] but that’s not fast enough! So I think your next campaign slogan has to be this, “We got to start eating babies!” We don’t have enough time! There’s too much CO2! All of you, you, you a pollutant! Too much CO2! We have to start now. Please, you are so great, I’m so happy you are supporting New Green Deal, but it’s not enough, you know. Even if we would bomb Russia, we still have too many people, too much pollution! So we have to get rid. of. the babies! That the big problem – just stop having babies is not enough! We need to eat the babies! And this is very serious, please give a response!”

Now, this person clearly is either a complete lunatic who is a danger to herself and everyone around her, or she is one of the greatest political pranksters of all time. Either way, any rational, thoughtful individual who values human life would have this person escorted by security out of the meeting and asked to leave the premises. That is certainly what any Republican member of congress would do, and rightfully so.

But not AOC, who herself is an utterly irrational, brainwashed climate lunatic. Watch the clip again and observe how the dead-eyed congresswoman is actually empathizing with this woman as she goes through her deranged rant. Watch how AOC nods her head in agreement as the woman repeatedly advocates for eating babies as a means of reducing CO2 – the very foundation for life on Planet Earth – in the atmosphere.

Then listen how AOC responds once the woman is done. Listen as she expresses neither condemnation nor abhorrence at the repulsive concept of actually consuming human children for breakfast, lunch and/or dinner. If you have trouble hearing the conversation, here is an exact transcript of AOC’s response:

“Thank you, thank you. We’ll go ahead [crazy woman interrupts] No, we’ll go ahead. Thank you. So, I think [woman interrupts again] Yeah, no, so, um, one of the things that’s very important to us is that we need to treat the climate crisis with the urgency that it does present. Um, luckily we have more than a few months. We do need to hit net zero [CO2 emissions] in several years, but I think we all need to, to, to understand that there are a lot of solutions we have, um, that we can pursue, and that if we act in a positive way there is space for hope.”

Oh, ok. So, given that we have more than a “few months” to do, no one knows what, exactly and AOC isn’t saying, we don’t need to start eating the babies…yet. Because, hey, there are a lot of “solutions” we can pursue, other than, presumably, eating the babies. And every one of those “solutions” involves Soviet-style programs designed to deprive you, the common people of America, of things you take for granted in your daily lives today.

You know, things like cars, and meat, and air travel, and straws, and mobility, and grocery stores whose shelves are stocked with food items. No more gas stoves, no more warm homes in the cold winters. No more reliable electricity, especially when the wind stops blowing and the skies grow cloudy. Those vacations you like to take? No more of that, you human pollutant, you!

Oh, and those TVs, computers and cell phones will all have to go, too, since they all contain many, many parts that are made from plastics, which are derived from petroleum. You know, that dirty “fossil fuel” that has been responsible for global prosperity for the last 120 years or so.

Ditto those fancy tennis shoes you like to wear and the backpacks you use to carry all your stuff around in, for the same reason. Toothpaste? You have to give that up to the jack-booted thugs who will come to your home to confiscate all the bad items you own. Same with your makeup, ladies and odd gentlemen – it’s made with the bad stuff, too.

No, in AOC’s world, we don’t have to “eat the babies” just yet, at least, not until you’ve surrendered all of those things and many, many, oh, so many more. Once you’ve done all of that, and the fake climate “scientists” have gauged the impacts of your living an 18th-century lifestyle on the climate, then and only then will we have to decide whether we need to start eating the babies if AOC has her way.

Call it the “final solution” of the Global Church of Climate Change.

Again, this woman is either as straight-up insane as AOC is, or she just pulled off one of the great political pranks of all-time. Either way, what she did at that town hall  was to simply take the ghoulish logic of climate extremism to its inescapable conclusion.

And AOC, the poster child for climate extremism in America, didn’t really even blink.

These people are ghouls.

That is all.

The D. C. Swamp Strikes Back! Ratcliffe Out…Hoekstra In?

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

Tired of all this #Winning yet? – Another month, another sterling jobs report. The private sector beat “expert” expectations yet again by adding 164,000 new jobs during the month of July, finishing the month with an all-time record 157,288,000 Americans gainfully employed. Even more encouraging is the fact that almost 400,000 Americans moved from the part-time jobs that characterized the Obama economy to the good-paying full-time jobs that are the centerpiece of the Trump economy. This truly never, ever gets old.

She’s gonna need some new script-writers. – The Chief of Staff and Communications Director for Anti-Semite Democrat Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez both resigned late on Friday under ongoing pressure from San Fran Nan and her house leadership goons.

The two Alinskyite lunatics, whose names I’m not going to specify on this site (AOC’s is enough work to expend on these garbage people for one morning) had come under fire last month after the Chief of Staff had accused Pelosi of “singling out women of color” and a referred to non-Marxist Democrats as segregationists.

Both men came to AOC from the despicable “Justice Democrats”, the group that supplies the fake congresswoman with her daily scripts. Their vacant positions will no doubt be filled with more staffers who have been trained by that anti-American Alinskyite group. As we have repeatedly seen, AOC is utterly helpless and sounds like a slow-learning 4th-grader whenever she attempts to speak without reciting from those daily scripts, so an injection of new blood from that group is essential for her continuing charade.

The Swamp Strikes Back! – D.C. Swamp rats from both political parties have won the first parry in the battle to replace the fired Dan Coats as the new Director of the Office of National Intelligence. Texas Congressman John Ratcliffe withdrew his name from consideration for the post yesterday amid a growing slime campaign in the national fake news media and ongoing behind-the-scenes opposition from GOP swamp rats like North Carolina Senator Richard Burr.

The Swamp Rats are now pushing hard to convince President Trump to nominate Coats’s Swampy Deputy, Sue Gordon, to become the new acting director when Coats leaves the post on August 15. Gordon has received endorsement tweets from an array of Deep State Usual Suspects in recent days, including Adam Schiff, John Brennan, James Comey and Rod Rosenstein, so you know she is someone who would do everything she can to block efforts to get at the cabal who attempted to fix the 2016 election and then tried to execute a coup d’etat throughout 2017 and 2018.

The fake news media is of course mounting a focused campaign to pressure the President to appoint Gordon to the post on a permanent basis. If he does that, then you can forget about any meaningful declassification of key documents taking place, as Gordon would be able to use her post as a roadblock.

The problem the President has is that the Swamp has now laid down its marker related to this crucial position as a hill on which it is willing to die, and there are half a dozen or more fake Republicans like Burr who are willing to help lead that battle. So, in order to get anyone confirmed in the Senate, where the Republicans hold a 53-47 majority, he is going to have to nominate someone with credentials that include experience in or around the nation’s seamy intelligence community.

The good news there is that the Wall Street Journal reported late Friday evening that Mr. Trump is considering former Michigan Congressman and current U.S. Ambassador to The Netherlands Pete Hoekstra as his next nominee for the post. How would Hoekstra fit the Swamp’s criteria? Well, as an early Trump supporter during the 2016 campaign, he wouldn’t.

But here’s the thing: Hoekstra is a former Chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, a post he held from 2004 through 2007. That little item on his resume would rob the Deep State hacks of the argument – which they used against Ratcliffe this week – that he lacks an understanding of the nation’s intelligence operations.

Hoekstra not only understands those operations, as former Chairman of that committee, he knows where all the bodies are buried. Nominating Hoekstra might be another Trump masterstroke.

As President Trump likes to say, we’ll just have to wait and see what happens.

That is all.

With Just Two Tweets, Trump Puts The Squad in Full Control of the Democrat Party

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

Man, you go on vacation and all hell breaks loose. – Seriously, it happens every time. Of course, we are in the age of President Donald Trump, so all hell breaks loose pretty much every day. But most of the time, there is a method to the President’s madness, and this time is no exception. It’s important that we all understand it.

Basically, as of Tuesday, President Trump put The Squad in full and complete control of the Democrat Party. The Squad is pictured here:

These four vicious, racist, anti-Semitic, anti-American scumbags now control the U.S. House of Representatives. They are now fully identified in the public’s mind as the face of the national Democrat Party. When they go to the polls next year, American voters will have images of these four sneering anti-American bigots at the front of their minds as what and who they will be voting for if they vote for Democrat candidates.

Yeah, the Democrat ticket will have someone like Kamala Harris or Fauxcahontas or someone not yet in the race at the top, but a vote for any Democrat for any office just became a vote for the policy choices and political thuggery represented by the four brutish women pictured above.

Trump’s Sunday morning tweets were no accident, and they did this.  Coming just at a time in which many Democrat office-holders were waking up to the threat The Squad represents to their Party and were beginning to condemn the four thugs, those tweets created the single greatest virtue-signaling frenzy in American history. As literally every left-leaning white male and female in the nation rushed to get onto Twitter and Facebook and improperly label the tweets as “racist” (they aren’t), all of those almost-woke Democrat officeholders now had no alternative but to line up, log-in and signal some damn virtue of their own.

As a result, the Democrat Party is now unalterably entangled with the jack-booted, bigoted, Pol Pot-like policies being pursued by The squad. The 2020 elections will now be a referendum on those policies, and they will not go well for the Democrats or their new leaders.

This new ad from the RNC gives you a preview of how it’s all going to play out:

 

Genius.  Now, back to my vacation.

The Tantrum-Tossing Brats in the Democrat Playpen Demand Their Impeachment!

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

“I’m not for impeachment. Impeachment is so divisive to the country that unless there’s something so compelling and overwhelming and bipartisan, I don’t think we should go down that path, because it divides the country. And he’s just not worth it.” – Speaker Nancy Pelosi, in an April interview with the Washington Post.

Oh, why the hell not? – Democrats in the House of Representatives were always bound to try to impeach President Donald Trump sooner or later. They spent 18 months living in a fantasy world in which they’d be going down this road backed up by the findings of the “high crimes and misdemeanors” compiled in a final report by Gestapo Chief…er…”Special Counsel” Robert Mueller and his band of evil Clinton/Obama thugs, but that didn’t work out quite the way they’d hoped.

But Democrats are always determined to self-immolate themselves at the altar of the desires of their most incoherently radicalized members, supporters and the shrews on “The View,” so they’re just ready now to go down this road anyway. Thus, despite San Fran Nan’s protestations against the desires of the mob to try to reverse the results of the 2016 presidential election for no valid reason whatsoever, the mob is most likely going to get its way, and soon.

The President’s refusal to allow half a dozen Democrat-controlled congressional committees to have a do-over of the whole Mueller Witch Hunt  will become their rationale for claiming Mr. Trump is “obstructing justice” or something. That, and his refusal to let the likes of Jabba the Nadler and Bug-Eyed Adam Schiff have his last 20 tax returns to use for political exploitation.

Folks, these are not “high crimes.” They aren’t even “misdemeanors.” They are a President of the United States protecting the office of the presidency, which is a very important thing for him to be doing in the face of such congressional corruption and overreach. That is, if we wish to maintain a constitutional Republic form of government, something the Democrats stopped caring about many years ago.

David Cicilline, Chairman of the House something-or-other Committee – they’re all chairmen of something – typifies the Democrat incoherence on the subject. Appearing on Fox News on Tuesday, here is what he had to say:

Cicilline told Fox News there is a “tremendous level of frustration” behind the growing impeachment efforts, adding that he believes Trump is “behaving as though he is above the law and he is not.”

Uh, what law? Cicilline can’t say. Oh. So the plan is to impeach a president because you’re all frustrated? That probably isn’t what our Founders had in mind with this whole “impeachment” thingy.

The Rhode Island Democrat appeared on MSNBC and offered his reaction that the White House is instructing McGahn to refuse to comply with a subpoena to appear on Capitol Hill and the assurance from the Department of Justice that McGahn has “immunity” which does not legally require him to testify before Congress, something Cicilline believed was “legally incorrect.”

Dear Cong. Cicilline: Disagreements over the law should be resolved in the courts, not by throwing tantrums on the floor of the House.

“Let me be clear; if Don McGahn doesn’t testify, it is time to open an impeachment inquiry,” Cicilline said. “The president has engaged in an ongoing effort to impede our ability to find the truth, to collect evidence, to do our work, and this is preventing us really from ultimately finding the facts and doing our work in terms of oversight.

Uh, what oversight work is that, Congressman? Cicilline can’t specify. Oh.

Ok, what about a guy named Mark Pocan, who is Chairman [because of course he is] of the Congressional Progressive Caucus, which means he’s basically a Marxist. Can he be more specific?

Rep. Mark Pocan, a co-chair of the Congressional Progressive Caucus, said Trump’s “stonewalling” of Congress “only enhances the President’s appearance of guilt,” and “has pushed Congress to a point where we must start an impeachment inquiry.”

“Regrettably, the President’s most recent actions and continued disrespect for the Constitution are forcing us down the road to impeachment,”

Uh, what “disrespect” for which part of the Constitution would that be? Can you be specific? No? Oh.

Ok, please go on.

“The President and his associates are engaging in a campaign of obstruction and lawlessness that undermines the rule of law and does not reflect the actions of someone who is ‘exonerated’ as innocent. Congress has a responsibility to conduct oversight and get the information we need to deliver the truth to the American public regarding Russia’s interference in our elections.”

Oh, so we’re back to the whole “we’re mad ‘cuz the Bad Orange Man won’t let us have our do-over!!!” right? Right.

Please, do take that argument to the American people. It will not end well for you.

But that’s all the children have, and they’re angry, and they aren’t going to bed until they’ve had their do-over. Thus, Mommy Nan announced Tuesday afternoon that she will hold a special “impeachment meeting” of her tantrum-tossing caucus at 9:00 ET today. Oh, to be a fly on the wall…

Interestingly – and this is utterly without precedent and thus worth noting – Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez actually sounded like one of the rare adults in the room in talking about all of this. In a brief interview with Politico, the normally-raging nitwit from the Bronx said “I trust that the speaker is taking a measured approach to ensure that we’re moving everyone forward, I know that being a Speaker is hard – holding this party together is a difficult task, but I think that we know what we need to do. I personally believe…that I think we have to move forward.”

Man, who wrote that damn-near-sensible statement for her? I mean, you can tell from her body language that she’s reciting a script, but it isn’t her normal incoherent Marxist gibberish. Guess Cenk Uygur must be on vacation.

Dear Democrats: When AOC is suddenly sounding like the calm kid in your playpen, you are well and truly out of control.

Please, don’t stop on my account. Somebody go pop some popcorn…

That is all.

Lunatic Freshmen Women are Killing the Democrat Party

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

Everyone is talking about lunatic congressional freshmen women today, and none of it is good. That’s really nothing all that new, but when Democrats have reached the point where their members of congress are even being slammed on CNN of all places, you know they have a problem. Watch this clip:

In addition to their exploding antisemitism problem personified by Tlaib and Ilhan Omar of Minnesota, the Democrats have obviously gotten some very bad polling data about their religion of Climate Change, and the insane “Green New Deal” being pushed by New York congressnitwit Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.

That’s the only reasonable conclusion to reach when you see AOC issuing this tweet over the weekend:

But there is no doubt at all that the former Bronx bartender was dead serious when she issued this tweet in April:

I’m sooooo serious, y’all!  OMG!

So, what has changed in the four weeks since that tweet was sent? Well, we know that every decision Democrats make is based on focus groups and polling data, so the obvious answer is that the “Green New Deal” and its 12-year “deadline” (her word, not anyone else’s) is being panned by the voters. When the polling goes south on any issue being pushed by the Democrats, the talking points must change. Thus, what was a hard “deadline” on April 17 becomes “O.M.G., y’all!  I was like totes kidding and stuff about that whole 12-year thing, or something!”

Let’s be painfully honest here: AOC has no clue what the word ‘sarcasm’ even means, would not know ‘dry humor’ if it snuck up and bit her on the, ummmm, ankle. Or something.

As for Tlaib and her latest despicably antisemitic remarks over the weekend, well, here they are in case you missed them:

“There’s always kind of a calming feeling I tell folks when I think of the Holocaust, and the tragedy of the Holocaust, and the fact that it was my ancestors — Palestinians — who lost their land and some lost their lives, their livelihood, their human dignity, their existence in many ways, have been wiped out, and some people’s passports. And just all of it was in the name of trying to create a safe haven for Jews, post-the Holocaust, post-the tragedy and the horrific persecution of Jews across the world at that time. And I love the fact that it was my ancestors that provided that, right, in many ways. But they did it in a way that took their human dignity away and it was forced on them.”

So, here’s a woman who gets a “calming feeling” when she thinks about an event in history in which more than 6 million Jews were exterminated by the Nazis and their collaborators. Oh, and their collaborators included the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem, Muhammad Amin al-Husayni, who happened to be the leader of the loosely-allied Arabs in the Middle East who called themselves “Palestinians.”

There was no effort on the part of Tlaib’s “ancestors” to “create a safe haven for Jews” during this period of time. In fact, Jewish people had begun migrating back into the region in the early 1880s, and of course have a long history in that part of world dating back thousands of years.

In fact, the Arab world – including the “Palestinians” in the region – rabidly opposed the creation of a Jewish state after World War II had ended, and refused to cooperate with it in any way. In 1964, these “Palestinians” – created the Palestinian Liberation Army and began conducting terror attacks on Jewish citizens in Israel.

The first leader of the PLO was a Lebanese national named Ahmad Shukeiri. In 1969, the PLO chose as its leader an Egyptian national, Yassir Arafat, not for his peaceful intentions but for his skills in conducting terrorist warfare. In 2006, Palestinians elected to be ruled by the terrorist organization known as Hamas, which still rules them today.

These are not “peaceful” people who voluntarily gave up land or anything else to “help” post-war Jews. That “calming feeling” Tlaib experiences when contemplating the barbaric deaths of 6 million Jews is based on a politically-motivated myth.

But Tlaib, along with AOC and fellow raging anti-Semite Ilhan Omar, are the new, ugly faces of today’s Democrat Party. And it seems that no matter what they say, no matter how repugnant their public declarations become, Nancy Pelosi will do nothing to discipline them.

Why? Simple: The repugnant, ugly, fantasy-based views they express are in fact mainstream thought in today’s Democrat Party. The reality is that these freshmen women are killing the Democrat Party not because of the insane things they believe, but because they so bluntly and frequently express them in public.

If you are Jewish and you vote for these people, you do so at your own peril. Then again, that holds true for all of us, and has for a long time now.

That is all.

Radical Dems Prepare to Follow the Mueller Roadmap to Oblivion

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

Hey, remember what happened to the House Republicans after they tried to impeach Bill Clinton? No? Cool, let’s do the same thing with Donald Trump! – That’s basically where House Democrats are right now. The whole purpose of Robert Mueller’s Witch Hunt from the beginning was to first enable the Democrats to take control of the House in the 2018 election and then to give them a road map for impeaching Donald Trump.

But that was all supposed to be done in the context of Mueller finding ample justification to actually charge the President with outright collusion with the Russians during the 2016 campaign, and/or for obstruction of justice, neither of which outcome Mueller was able to deliver. But that doesn’t matter to Democrat politicians – they spend every day making up and saying stuff that just isn’t true, after all. It’s how they make their livings.

So, Mueller didn’t really give us that roadmap? No problem – we’ll just make like he did. Thus, as soon as Attorney General William Barr released Mueller’s report to the public last Thursday, the calls from various Democrat members like Mad Maxine Waters and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez for the House to immediately begin impeachment hearings began going out. Statements cautioning against moving in that direction by House Majority Whip Steny Hoyer and Bug-eyed Adam Schiff fell on deaf ears.

The cacophony of crazy voices only continued to grow louder over the Easter weekend, to the point where San Fran Nan felt the need on Monday to first send a letter to members stating her position on the matter, and then convene an evening conference call that lasted for an hour and a half. The end result of her efforts was to essentially give lunatic committee chairs like Jabba The Nadler and Elija Cummings carte blanche to continue their own Witch Hunts to see if they can drum up some smoking gun that Mueller couldn’t find during his 22 months of searching.

San Fran Nan’s letter is an object lesson the pure demented status of today’s Democrats. While she does not support moving ahead with immediate impeachment hearings, she obviously felt the need to placate her lunatic caucus by including red meat like:

“While we do not have the full report and the underlying exhibits, including the grand jury testimony, two of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s conclusions stand out: one, the “sweeping and systematic” Russian interference in our elections; and two, the President’s repeated efforts to thwart cooperation with the independent prosecutors in their pursuit of justice.”

This is pure, unadulterated idiocy. First, if there was indeed “sweeping and systematic” Russian interference in our elections, that all happened while Barack Hussein Obama was serving as President, and he did literally nothing about it.

Not only did Obama not do anything about it, he made a famous speech in which he even ridiculed the entire notion that it was even possible to “rig” a U.S. election. On October 18, 2016, Barack Hussein Obama his own self said this:

“But the larger point I want to emphasize here is that there is no serious person out there who would suggest somehow that you could even — you could even rig America’s elections, in part, because they are so decentralized and the numbers of votes involved.

There is no evidence that that has happened in the past or that there are instances in which that will happen this time.”

Donald Trump was a candidate who had never held any elected office in his life in 2016, when all of this “interference” in our elections by Russian agents supposedly took place. Robert Mueller and his 19 Clinton/Obama loyalists CLEARED Mr. Trump of doing anything to support or collude with those Russian activities. So, of the Democrats want to plow this particular field yet again, I’d imagine the President is sitting in the Oval Office smiling and thinking “Oh, please, by my guest.”

Pelosi’s second false point about “the President’s repeated efforts to thwart cooperation with the independent prosecutors in their pursuit of justice” is simply another Democrat load of fresh, smelly horse manure. Yes, the section of the Mueller report on Obstruction contains all sorts of gossip and unprovable innuendo contending that the President “thought about”, “considered”, and “lashed out” about all sorts of things, but the simple fact of the matter is that he did not do one damn thing to actually interfere with Mueller’s Witch Hunt.  Nothing, zero, zip, nada, bupkiss.

Even more compelling in the President’s defense, he in fact granted Mueller unprecedented access to his staff and executive branch documents, encouraged full cooperation from his people and never one time exercised his full constitutional rights to executive privilege.

But again, the actual truth does not matter a whit to Democrats these days. Their whole thought process centers around what they can make up, and more importantly, what can they and their toadies in the fake news media make the American people believe?

Yes, it’s despicable. Yes, it’s demented. Yes, it is the very essence of depravity.

But hey, these are Democrats we’re talking about here, so does any of it really surprise you? I’m guessing the answer to that question is a resounding ‘NO’.

That is all.

The Week in Review: The Trump Tide Begins to Turn

The Campaign Update Week in Review
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

[The week just past as chronicled on the @GDBlackmon Twitter feed.]

The week began with sellout actor Robert DeNiro threatening Trump supporters that he’d never forget what we’ve done the last few years, whatever that means. Yeah, well, we’re never gonna forget he got paid $20 million for making “Dirty Grandpa” and “The Intern.”:

But things only got better from there. Here is a worker who does, I kid you not, the BEST. TRUMP. IMPRESSION. EVER!:

Slick Willie and the Pantsuit Princess got heckled in their fake “home state” of New York, and all was right with the world.:

Jabba The Nadler jumped in to defend The Enemy Within, Ilhan Omar, in her latest anti-America remarks controversy.:

Cher previews the lyrics to her upcoming new hit sing, “MY CITY CAN’T TAKE CARE OF ITS OWN!!!!”:

…and the next morning’s Campaign Update was all about that Cher tweet, which was the most awesomest tweet in the history of awesomely hypocritical tweets.:

Why “global warming” isn’t really a thing anymore…:

It was mid-day Monday, and Notre Dame was burning.:

Meanwhile, “Morning Joe” was off his meds again. Or maybe he was on them, it’s hard to tell.:

Irish Bob O’Rourke was running low on meaningless sophistries to recite to his mind-numbed followers, so he decided to poll them about what they want to hear, so they could give him a bunch more things to regurgitate back to them on the campaign trail. He is seriously running the most vacuous campaign in Democrat history, and that is the party that gave us two previous campaigns from Joe Biden.:

AOC is actually correct about this, but the truth about Creepy Joe Biden won’t sit well with San Fran Nan.:

San Fran Nan was trying to get AOC and The Enemy Within under some control, and her efforts did seem to have some dampening effect on their behavior as the week wore on. It won’t last for long, though.:

Well, that sure doesn’t fit the narrative. Not at all.:

Because he plans to “pay” for it by ordering the Treasury to print trillions of new dollars every year, devaluing the currency in the process. Same way he plans to pay for free college and all his other mindless socialist ideas. It’s the Venezuela model.:

Eric “Because the Government has nukes” Swalwell entered the presidential race, solely to play the role of the Democrat Party’s stalking horse on gun control.:

Andy McCarthy had a great piece on the Obama Cabal’s spying operation on the Trump Campaign.:

Yikes. Running Roy Moore for that senate seat again would be like Texas Democrats running Wendy Davis as their gubernatorial candidate again.:

Here’s my Campaign Update on San Fran Nan’s efforts to control her radical Kiddie Caucus by putting them in semi-time out.:

Tea Biscuits everywhere stand highly insulted by this tweet from the inimitable James Woods.:

Irish Bob O’Rourke was too busy riding a skateboard in his sheep suit.:

The slow turning of Fox News continues…:

Our fake news media barely noticed, but realeasing the Mueller Report wasn’t the only important action taken by Attorney General William Barr this week.:

CNN’s real competition isn’t Fox News or MSNBC, it’s TLC and The Food Network.:

Gosh, I wonder what tipped him off?:

Best, most prescient meme of the week here.:

Brit Hume tipped me off to one of the best things I’ve read all year. You should read it, too.:

I’m old enough to remember when journalists were trained to bitch and moan whenever public officials refused to hold press conferences. Now, they bitch and moan when the Attorney General holds one. It’s all so despicable.:

All carbon tax proposals are nothing more than money-grabbing scams.  Every one of them. Remember this key fact of political life – it will serve you well in the future.:

Tim Young is the hammer, liberals are his nails.:

I’m always happy to be of service to others.:

And just like that, here we go.:

President Trump offers the most concise summary of the 400-page Mueller Witch Hunt Report.:

….aaaaannnnnndddd the celebration at the White House begins.:

The media reaction to Barr’s release of the Mueller Report was highly-predictable, and oh, so entertaining.:

….they were still melting down the next day, to no one’s surprise.:

Their behavior was so abhorrent that they’d even lost Geraldo Rivera, for crying out loud.:

Chris Cuomo looked like a deer in the headlights.  Ok, he always looks like a deer in the headlights, but still…:

Meet the new #NeverTrump talking points, same as the old #NeverTrump talking points. So tiresome.:

Fauxcahontas was on the warpath, sending out smoke signals demaning scalps!:

….aaaannnnnddd reliable old NBC News led the charge with the new officially-approved joint Media/Democrat talking points, as the goal posts shifted yet again.:

And finally, Mitt Romney saw what he thought was a chance to advance his own presidential ambitions by jumping in with the Democrat/Media propaganda complex, because of course he did.:

What an amazing week it was, huh?

Happy Easter to you all!

That is all.

The Week in Review: Spying, Lying and Eunuchs, oh my!

The Campaign Update Week in Review
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

[The week just past as chronicled on the @GDBlackmon Twitter feed.]

The week began with the bag of scum named Preet Bharara admitting he actively plotted to reverse the results of the 2016 elections after Donald Trump was elected. Things got much, much better from there.:

See? There really is good news out there if you just look for it…:

I am so surprised to learn that this could happen in our public schools! said no adult who has ever dealt with the public schools in America.:

This about sums it up, all right.:

What if the Commie Mayor of New York City visited Nevada as part of a presidential campaign exploratory effort and nobody noticed?:

The ineffectual Kirstjen Nielsen got canned, and Larry Schweikart summed it up properly.:

Chris Coons demagogued the Neilsen firing, and pissed me off. Can you tell?:

James Woods with some really strong advice.:

One of the best parts of Twitter is reading all the enraged replies to the Babylon Bee by social justice warriors who are too dim to realize it is a parody account. Priceless.:

This was only the most predictable thing in the world.:

I’m not sure whether to laugh, cry, or just recoil in abject horror.:

The video of activist Candace Owens raking House Judiciary Democrats over their racist coals became the most-watched web-based video in C-Span’s history.:

Attorney General William Barr threw the Democrats and their news media co-conspirators into a panicked frenzy this week with his two days of congressional testimony. It was glorious.:

This happened on Wednesday.:

In the midst of it all, the shameless hacks at CNN just kept on doing what they do better than anybody else in the business, faking the news.:

No, times haven’t really changed much at all. All the racists in the un-doctored version of that photo were Democrats, too.:

GOP Texas Cong. Dan Crenshaw told the truth about Ilhan Omar’s despicable comments on 9/11. Democrats can’t handle the truth, so this tweet touched off a firestorm that raged through the rest of the week. *sigh*:

The Houston Chronicle embarrassed itself with this op-ed.:

AG Barr set the world afire once again with his clear-eyed admission that the Obama Administration was “spying” on the Trump Campaign. Democrats once again recoiled in abject horror at the truth finding its way into the public domain, because of course they did.:

CNN responded in very, very, very predictable fashion. The faked the news. *sigh*:

Oh, look. Bill Kristol thinks he still has “Republican friends.” Isn’t that precious?:

The hacks at Politico tried their best to keep up in the fakenews game by faking the news on…wait for it…a presidential visit to Mount Vernon.  I kid you not.:

Why yes, yes they are.:

Nick Searcy perfectly captures the essence of the Eric Swalwell for President campaign.:

I found the perfect screen shot of CNN’s little eunuch.:

Meanwhile, in news no American with a life gives a damn about…:

That’s a rhetorical question, right, Brit Hume?:

Hoping American taxpayers aren’t looking, makers of non-competitive electric vehicles campaigned to actually increase their already-princely taxpayer subsidies. Because of course they did.:

Also, this happened.:

Thursday was turning into a really epic day…:

Really, really epic…:

Some irrational tweets by mindless leftists require a rational answer.:

AOC decided to come to Ilhan Omar’s defense in a stupendously vapid way that only she could possibly achieve. For those unaware, Dan Crenshaw is a Navy Seal who fought for this country against terrorists in the Middle East, lost an eye in a roadside bomb attack, and is the recipient of a Purple Heart.:

The news of the indictment of Obama’s former White House Counsel was given less than a minute’s air time by the three major fake news networks. No surprise there, right?:

The latest media-created Democrat “Rising Star” was turning poor Beto into a has-been.:

By coincidence, my very thoughtful daughter and granddaughter bought me a fabulous new t-shirt. I’m wearing it, right now, in fact.:

Chevron bought out Anadarko in one of the biggest U.S. oil and gas mergers in the 21st century.:

Adam Schiff, whose home state has been using illegal immigrants as political pawns for decades now, tips off the Democrat/media talking points on Trump’s plan to relocate illegals to sanctuary cities. Hilarity ensuses.:

Speaking of our favorite pendejo, here he is, lying about the ongoing border crisis.:

Sure glad to see the Pentagon has its national defense priorities straight. *sigh*:

This bit of fakenews from Politico hasn’t held up well in light of current events.:

It’s the big one, Elizabeth! I’m comin’ to join you!:

We’ll close the week out with this one. If you want to understand the inner workings of the Democrat/media hive mind, it’s a good read. If you’re a Democrat, you should avoid it, since you might learn something.:

The Week in Review: The Perils of Biden and AOC

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

[The week just past as chronicled on the @GDBlackmon Twitter feed.]

The week began with AOC getting history wrong – because she always gets history wrong – and just went downhill from there.:

A parade of women had just started to emerge from the closet to complain about Creepy Joe Biden’s fondling of them, but the reliable lapdogs at the Washington Post were already on the job providing cover for him.:

On Monday, AOC kept herself busy surveying the price of food at La Guardia Airport while waiting to fly on a carbon-spewing airliner – you know, the kind of thing she plans to eliminate with her Green New Deal. (Hint: She got the price of the pastry every bit as wrong as she got the history of the 25th Amendment.):

As the second woman came forward to complain about Creepy Joe Biden, it wasn’t real hard to predict what was still to come.:

It was April 1, and our erstwhile ex-FBI Director and current Teenage Drama Queen thought he would play an incredibly narcissistic practical joke. Nobody laughed.:

Robert Wilson posted a fantastic graphic here. Note the expansion of that natural gas line over the last 15 years – it’s why your air is so much cleaner today than it was 25 years ago.  Fracking says, “You’re welcome, America!”:

As President Donald Trump threatened to close the southern border with Mexico due to the ongoing invasion from Central America, our nation’s fake news media focused on what was really, really, really important to vegans and snowflake freaks everywhere.:

The hypocrisy of the lunatic left, part 29,282.:

With the Mueller report issued and exonerating President Trump, the evil minions at CNN found their already-terrible ratings in free fall. How would this cable joke survive without the captive audiences in our nation’s airports?:

Cool. No use wasting any time.:

While women continued to come forward to complain about his handsy habits, Joe Biden continued to get a free pass from the fake news media related to his real scandal.:

Meanwhile, the news-fakers over at CBS News were working diligently to paint human traffickers in a glowing light. You seriously cannot overstate that a raging dumpster fire our national news media truly is.:

So…damn…awesome.:

So. Damn. Awesome, Part II from the same speech.:

It’s a clown car. Literally, a car filled with circus clowns, led by Jabba the Nadler.:

Can you blame her?:

What in the hell is wrong with Sen. Mike Lee that he would vote against this? You can’t write it off to his supposed Libertarian “principles,” since the filibuster rule was enacted in the 1830s by racist southern Democrat slave owners as a means of preventing the senate from abolishing slavery. The crap this guy and Rand Paul pull on big votes like this is maddening.:

If you don’t follow the hilarious Babylon Bee on Twitter, you are really missing out on the fun.:

No comment necessary.:

And, as Wednesday drew to a close, the news fakers at the New York Times did their duty to support the Democrat narrative by rolling out yet another heinously fake story. Because of course they did.:

Speaking of the New York times, its’ fake “journalists” need to broaden their horizons.:

Oh, hey, we’re up to seven now…:

Despite all the media disinformation and misinformation, the Trump 2020 landslide kept building …:

…and building…:

…and building.:

You go first, Jake.:

Just when you thought the Democrat 2020 presidential field could not get any worse, the most disgraceful pathological liar in congress proves you wrong.:

Now, if we could just ban the U.S. media from covering the British royal family…:

Seriously, where have these news fakers been?:

Look up the word “slimy” in your Funk & Wagnall’s dictionary, and you’ll find a photo of this guy next to it.:

The perfect Twitter meme…:

The perfect Twitter video meme…:

…and I’m just going to end it with this.:

With “Moderate” Democrats Like These, Who Needs Radicals?

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

Why, that’s so moderate! – Tim Ryan became the 2,342nd Democrat to announce his presidential candidacy this week, and the fake news media universally declared him to be a “moderate” among the field of socialists, Leninists, Stalinists, Marxists and outright commies who were already in the race.

How do we know Mr. Ryan, a Democrat congressman from Ohio, is “moderate”? Why, just look at his position on abortion: He’s all in favor of murdering children right up to the point at which they’re about to be born into this world, but unlike all the other ghouls already in the race, he’s against killing them after they’re already breathing free air. In reality, Mr. Ryan is every bit as batsh*t crazy as any of the other lunatics in the race, but he has a nice, tidy haircut, speaks fairly softly, isn’t out there on TV every day lying about having inside information that President Donald Trump is a spy for the Russkies, and as I say, has yet to announce his support of outright infanticide.

That makes him a “moderate” among today’s Democrat Party. My goodness.

And speaking of “moderate” Democrats… – Ok, just kidding.  I’m talking about our very favorite demented Democrat Socialist freak, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, or “AOC” for short.

AOC has apparently been taking “blackspeak” lessons from Hillary Clinton, and it got her into yet another controversy yesterday after she gave a speech to fake Rev. Al Sharpton’s National Action Network conference.

But first, a reminder of the context here: Who could ever forget this clip of the Pantsuit Princess giving a talk in Selma, Alabama, employing her impression of what Democrat racists like to refer to as “southern negro dialect”:

The insulting, condescending pandering to the mostly-black audience in the room that day literally bleeds through the screen. The Coughing Crook’s political mentor, segregationist Arkansas Sen. J. William Fulbright, would have been so proud.

As always, AOC chooses her own role models unwisely (first Stalin and Pol Pot, now the Fainting Felon), and she decided it would be just a peachy idea to engage in a little HRC condescension of her own when speaking to Sharpton’s audience.  The similarity is spooky:

To be clear, her words are fine: All of the lines of work she talks about there amount to very noble work that needs to be done, and I’ve done most of them myself in my younger days. But why try to say it all in a fake dialect? What’s the point of that, other than patronizing condescension and contempt for the audience?

Naturally, Twitter went wild in response to the release of that video, mocking the freshman congresswoman for descending even further into the depths of Democrat depravity than she had already gone before, which frankly had seemed almost impossible for her to do. And very predictably – as is her habit – AOC responded to the mocking by trying to paint herself as some sort of victim:

The problem is, no one was talking about “her” voice or her “distinct linguistic culture” – had she stuck to her own very distinctive accent, no one would’ve said boo about it. She was being slammed for trying to appropriate an entire class of people’s own accent and dialect, and failing miserably in doing so.

It’s demeaning to the audience, it’s insulting and yes, it is racist. Yet, there is a certain class of Democrat politician – usually, the phoniest among them – who think it’s a perfectly fine thing for them to do in front of largely-black audiences. YouTube is littered with videos of prominent, heinously phony Democrats like Barack Obama and Al Gore, in addition to the Grasping Grifter, employing this insulting tactic.

Now, AOC takes her place among that millieu. She’s learning fast what it takes to become a real rising star in the Democrat Party today.

That is all.

The Week in Review: Mueller Delivers a Dud, Democrat Hopes Deflate

The Campaign Update Week in Review
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

The Week in Review, courtesy of the @GDBlackmon Twitter Feed…

The week began with the @GOP celebrating St. Patrick’s Day in the most appropriate means possible, with a meme featuring the mug shot of everyone’s favorite El Paso Irishman. Things only got funnier and better from there, believe it or not.:

Rob Christie posts some of the funniest short videos on the Twitter platform. I thought this one was totes awesome.:

After more proof of John McCain’s mendacity in the spreading of the fake Trump Dossier emerged, Donald Trump was being criticized for lashing out at the dead Senator. Not surprisingly, I thought the President’s outrage was completely justified.:

Meanwhile, our next future president from Texas was hilariously lamenting NYU’s hiring of yet another radical leftist activist onto its faculty, which now rivals Harvard’s as the last American bastion of Soviet-style Marxism.:

Is anyone surprised that Dan Rather, the literal inventor of #fakenews, now turns up regularly as a contributor on CNN?:

On Monday, we learned that Fox News had hired Clinton toady Donna Brazile on as a paid contributor. Lanny Davis and Paul Begala were already tied up by CNN, so…:

The very entertaining Larry Schweikart noted a poll that turned out to be a bit of foreshadowing…:

Speaking of foreshadowing, James Woods hits this nail right square on the head.:

Things are not looking up for the presidential aspirations of Mayor Meatless Mondays…:

What do they put in the drinking water up there in the Bronx?:

This is 100% true and cannot be repeated often enough.:

Fauxcahontas was down in Mississippi interfering in another state’s business. Because of course she was.:

This guy should avoid trying to debate the merits of the Electoral College with the great Nick Searcy.:

If this bit of news about Irish Bob surprises you, you haven’t been paying attention. After all, later in the week we found out he fed his child’s poop to his wife as a practical joke. I’m thinking she probably was not amused.:

I’m pretty sure the TSA agent in this disgusting video is Joe Biden in a fat suit.:

Speaking of guys in a fat suit, I give you Kellyanne Conway’s husband, George. Oh, wait, that’s not a fat suit at all, is it?:

This was the only proper culmination for Nick Cage’s amazing career. He should announce his retirement immediately after the movie premieres.”

I’m not a fan of #NeverTrump nitwit Bill Kristol. Can you tell?:

Larry Schweikart does a great job of keeping up with special election results around the country. The Democrats’ rapid lurch to the far, far, far, lunatic left is creating a mini-wave for the GOP this year.:

We interrupt our politics to bring you wonderful news from America’s oil and gas industry.:

I’m not sure either of them is actually sentient.:

George Orwell was a London citizen when he wrote his famous book, “1984”. In today’s London, Orwell’s book would be banned as hate speech and he’d be tossed in prison for writing it.:

Irish Bob O’Rourke isn’t the only political loser who Democrats are obsessed with these days. Stacey Abrams is giving him a strong run for his money.:

Every once in awhile, the #fakenews hacks at Politico get something right.:

It seems like every week along about Thursday I get real tired of Jim Acosta’s crap. This week was no different.:

If you see some guy in a sheep suit seated at the Pai Gow table, eating dirt, that’s Irish Bob.:

When Greg Budell asked a very good question about the lack of coverage in the U.S. news media about America’s final defeat of ISIS, I had the right answer.:

You seriously cannot make these fake news people up.:

This cracked me up.:

As perhaps the world’s most avid fan of the film “Three Amigos” – which is the funniest script ever written – I have to give @Solmemes1 the award for greatest Twitter meme ever.:

Communists are so predictable.:

This bit of economic winning went largely unreported by our fake news media, but is a very key leading indicator of good things to come.:

Sorry. I just couldn’t resist.:

It’s true. And I won.:

Well, that was totally unexpected! said no one anywhere.:

Shameless self-promotion alert! – Robert Mueller sent his final report over to AG William Barr at 5:00 on Friday evening. 37 minutes later, I posted this sage analysis about what to expect next.:

Oh, it’s a joke, all right. A walking, talking, unshaven buffoon of a joke.:

This said it all about @BillKristol.:

This said it all as well.:

When will everyone wake up to the reality that most of these people are in fact themselves child molesters?:

MSNBC’s resident conspiracy theorist Rachel Maddow literally wept on live TV when she learned Mueller had found no evidence supporting the “Russia Collusion” fantasy she has promoted for the last two years.:

Well, they were never to be trusted before, either, so…:

Over at CNN, Brian Stelter was highly disappointed.:

The great James Woods offered the perfect capper to a wonderful week.:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

That is all.

The Week in Review: Beto, Biden and Bribes, Oh My!

The Campaign Update Week in Review
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

The Week in Review, courtesy of the @GDBlackmon Twitter Feed…

The week began with the loss of an hour’s sleep due to our annual national act of Daylight Savings Time insanity, and it just went down from there.:

The sponsor of the “Green New Deal” was among fellow Climate Frauds in Austin on Sunday, and she got a selfie with one of the biggest frauds of all.:

This is, like, what AOC, like, sounds like when she….ummm…like, goes off script.:

Meanwhile, things continued to crumble out in Los Angeles…:

He isn’t often right, but he’s right about this.:

Greg Budell had the perfect solution for young Americans who favor turning our country into just another socialist cesspit of human misery.:

Fox News’s Tucker Carlson again became a target of the social media outrage mob when the scumbags at Media Matters dug up some comments he’d made on a talk radio program a decade ago. His response should serve as the role model for anyone caught up in such nonsense in the future.:

It’s always fun watching an old cowboy whipping a young thug’s ass, complete with taking his shirt.:

The fake news never stops at CNN, and Little Jimmy Acosta continues to be the most tireless yet least effective news-faker in the business.:

This bit of truth cannot be repeated often enough.:

Oh. Uh, wouldn’t that be, like, collusion or something?:

How many dead elderly Americans do you reckon polled to come to the conclusion that they aren’t happy?:

This man is seriously considering running for president. No, seriously, he really is.:

Think about it: You know it’s true.:

Man, that’s gonna make it a lot harder for the people at NOAA to keep defrauding the global temperature records.:

Is this even an arguable point? China is the world’s second-largest economy, and it is still taking money from the World Bank? Holy crap, we are such a bunch of suckers.:

She. Did. Not. Rule. Out. Impeachment.:

When the media refuses to correctly identify the root cause of the problem (in this case, Democrats) the problem will only continue to grow.:

A couple of true geniuses passed away this week. First, Dan Jenkins, probably the greatest and funniest sports writer who ever lived, died at the age of 94. Then, Hal Blaine, an incomparable studio drummer, joined Jenkins in the afterlife.:

Mitt Romney had a birthday, and all that did was remind us of his failings.:

It was a week when the Democrats really ramped-up their obsession with political losers.:

The truth about AOC emerged, and it really helped make sense of everything she says and does. If you haven’t taken the 23 minutes required to watch this expose’, make time to do it. You’ll be glad you did.:

Oh, well, call me insecure, then. *sigh*:

Pretty sure that’s also a piece of AOC’s “Green New Deal.” Isn’t sewer water generally green?:

Here, I try to educate some fake reporter who is lying about his interactions with folks from the oil and gas industry. I no doubt failed.:

Just thought you all should know this.:

Here I capture the essence of today’s Federal Bureau of Investigation.:

Well, I would.:

Here is leading Climate Fraud Bill McKibben, promoting what amounts to nothing more or less than mass child abuse.:

And now we pause for a little cat comedy gold.:

Ok, this intermission is going to last just a little longer…:

In other news, water continues to be wet.:

This was not the best piece I’ve ever written, but it might well be the cleverest headline.:

Self-awareness continues to be a personal weakness for Fauxcahontas.:

Ben Shapiro captured the pure essence of the media’s approach to writing Beto profiles.:

There are just so many unattractive options where Irish Bob O’Rourke is concerned.:

Seriously, was there still anyone out there who didn’t already know this?:

Try, just try, to imagine how utterly worthless a degree from NYU truly is.:

Well, of course he did.:

When his campaign comes up a crapper, he can replace Matthew McConaughey in those Lincoln ads.:

If you don’t follow Nick Searcy on Twitter, you are truly missing out on the fun.:

I got up in a sour mood on Friday. CNN only made it worse.:

Just hours after swearing we were all gonna die if we don’t stop using gasoline, Irish Bob was begging donors to pay to fill up his gas-guzzling minivan. You seriously cannot make this stuff up.:

No question about this.:

David Corn needs better talking points. This is just too easy.:

This happened.:

Now, for another funny break.:

When Chelsea Clinton was harassed by a Muslim college student, various conservatives rushed to her defense on Twitter. I couldn’t for the life of me figure out why. But then, I never cared much for virtue signaling.:

This is self-serving, but hey, it’s my blog.:

I always was a big fan of The Who.:

Those two options are not mutually-exclusive.:

Here, I offer a little free advice to Senator Ted Cruz.  I wish he’d take it – he’d be doing a national service.:

The clearest proof that “Climate Change” is a socialist-promoting scam is that its most prominent spokesmen are invariably people who don’t make any effort at all to change their own lifestyles.:

Finally, I’m a huge fan of Texas Governor Greg Abbott, but every once in a while he gets something wrong.:

That is all.

The Democrats’ Ongoing Fascination With Political Losers

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

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is an actress. – Everyone should watch this video. Trust me, just watch it. It’ll be the best 23 minutes you invest this week. I’m going to keep this pinned at the top of each piece I post for the next few days in order to maximize its – and her – exposure.

Paul Begala is an anti-Semitic sleaze. – The man with the highest forehead on television referred to Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump as “cockroaches” in a clear effort to dehumanize the Jewish couple in the minds of CNN viewers. Adolph Hitler and Joseph Goebbels would have been extremely proud of Mr. Begala, who has made a living for 25 years now by lying on television.

Why is today’s Democrat Party such a steaming cesspit of anti-Semitism? – Speaking of raging anti-Semites, the Deputy Press Secretary for the Bernie Sanders campaign, an illegal alien named Belen Sisa, was forced to apologize yesterday when anti-Semitic posts she made on Facebook on Sunday were made public. Just more proof that Jewish voters who continue voting for Democrats are voting for their own destruction.

I’m betting she learned how to lose Florida. – The Tampa Bay Times had this to say in a tweet yesterday: “Amy Klobuchar revealed she recently spoke with Andrew Gillum about what it takes to win Florida. Here’s what she learned.” I swear I don’t make this stuff up.

What is it about the current crop of Democrats and their ongoing obsession with losers? Irish Bob O’Rourke, the Texas loser to Ted Cruz, after months of dithering around while trying to “find” himself as if he were a 22 year-old snowflake, appears about to finally announce his run for the presidency. Stacey Abrams, who lost the Georgia governor’s race to Brian Kemp despite having massive voter fraud in her favor, is now making noises about doing the same, as we noted here on Monday.

And now we have presidential candidates seeking advice from Gillum, who lost the governor’s race to Republican Ron DeSantis in spite of the sleazebag elections officials in Broward and Palm Beach counties spending a week trying to manufacture enough votes to tip the count in his favor. Gillum is so ethically challenged that he will probably soon find himself on trial on findings by the Florida Ethics Commission that he accepted illegal gifts on many occasions while serving as Mayor of Tallahassee.

Ok, come to think of it, that is all most likely exactly why Klobuchar is seeking Gillum’s advice.  These are Democrats we’re talking about here, after all.

Hey, no offense intended, but these guys are really, really old. – Going back to our precious Robert “Beto” O’Rourke for a moment, despite all the hundreds of millions of dollars in free media hype he has received from every media outlet from CNN to the New York Times to the Washington Post to MSNBC to Oprah (who is a media outlet in and of her own self), Irish Bob finds himself running a poor 5th in the latest Monmouth poll, trailing Creepy Joe Biden, the Commie, Kamala Harris and even Fauxcahontas with just 6% support among registered Democrat voters.

Meanwhile, Creepy Joe Biden comes in at 28%, with the Commie close behind at 26%. This brings me to just a fascinating set of fun facts.

On Election Day 2020, the Commie will be 79 years old, while Creepy Joe will be less than two weeks away from turning 78. If elected and then re-elected, either man would be pushing 90 by the end of a second term in office. This is rather stunning to know, considering that the oldest serving president in our nation’s history, Ronald Reagan, was 77 years old the day he left office after having served two full terms.

Every Democrat in America spent the full eight years of Ronaldus Magnus’s presidency screaming that he was just too darn old for the office. Today, the Creep and the Commie are pulling well over half of Democrat voter support. Meanwhile, the comparative “young guns” in the race, Irish Bob and Harris, are stumbling along with a combined 14%.

Thus, at this point, the Democrat fascination with political losers by the Party’s leadership hasn’t begun translating into actual support among Democrat voters. It seems these voters will require many more months of heavy-duty brainwashing by the Democrat fake news media.

Rest assured, that’s exactly what they will be getting, and they’ll like it. Because, Democrats.

That is all.

The Week in Review: Jussie, Alexandria, Ilhan and Various Other Frauds

The Campaign Update Week in Review
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

The Week in Review, courtesy of the @GDBlackmon Twitter Feed…

The week started with a really bad poll for the Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez/Bernie Sanders Democrats, and went downhill from there.:

And now a moment for some funny stuff…:

If you doubt that leftists hate you, all you have to do is listen to what their talking head heroes say on national television every day. Then the doubts will disappear.:

Bernie Sanders misspelled “Democrats” so I fixed if for him.:

Matt Walsh didn’t need a documentary on HBO to tell him Michael Jackson was a media-protected monster. Neither did I.:

Nick Searcy was fantastic in “Justified.” He’s even better on Twitter.:

Oh.

Amy Walter asks a very pertinent question, and I have a ready answer.:

CNN is garbage, Part 17,556.:

Actually, what drives people crazy is that she’s as powerful as an actual sentient human being.:

Oh, yeah, and this actually happened. No really, it’s not photo-shopped or CGI. Pinky-swear.:

The New York Times’ Maggie Haberman is a trained propagandist, er, “journalist”, oh yes she is.:

Here is Wisconsin’s new governor, announcing his effort to secure his state’s electoral votes for the Democrat nominee in 2020 via voter fraud.:

It’s a real blessing sometimes, this “Climate Change” thing.:

And now another brief comedy break…:

Oh, hell, and one more…:

Rep. Rob Bishop nails the essence of the Green New Deal.:

I’m sorry, but c’mon. Be serious.:

Dear Diary:

If “Global Warming” isn’t stopped soon, we’re all going to freeze to death.:

Leftwing propagandist David Corn won’t post photos here because he’s lying, and Sky Harbor Airport called him out on it.:

Kat Timpf is silly, and it’s showing.:

This is a big, big deal. Next, they’ll be writing off Florida.:

Hint: The backup plan’s name is Wendy Davis. No, really, I’m not kidding.:

Not surprising, since they can’t risk having any real journalist like Brit Hume or Bret Baier asking any tough questions. Utterly pathetic, but that is today’s Democrats for you.:

Oh, hey, Mitt Romney actually got to visit the Oval Office.:

Nick Short shows us how it all works.:

Please stop giving Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and her fellow Green New Deal promoters bad ideas!:

The Democrats were having a little trouble finding away to condemn Ilhan Omar’s rank anti-Semitism…:

Ok, c’mon – you know I’m right here.:

I’m right about this, too.:

He exists, he just doesn’t do anything.:

Finland provided us with another object lesson about socialism on Friday. Was anyone listening?:

I’m more than happy to concede the future of the Democrat Party to the likes of AOC and Ilhan Omar, just so long as we can concede the future of the GOP to the likes of Dan Crenshaw.

Traitors gonna traitor.:

Jussie’s in a bit of hot water.:

San Fran Nan applies the soft bigotry of low expectations to her new “rising star”.:

Just a thought…:

The week ended on a high note.:

That is all.

Nancy Pelosi is Now the Adult in the Room, and That’s a Huge Problem for Democrats

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

Ohhhhh, the humanityyyyyyy!!!!! – All hell broke loose on social media among the snowflakes, social justice warriors and fake journalists who work for the New York Times and CNN when the judge in the Paul Manafort trial rejected American Gestapo Chief, er, “Special Counsel” Robert Mueller’s draconian sentencing recommendation.

Instead of going with Herr Mueller’s recommended 19-24 years, which would have certainly been a life in prison sentence for the 69 year-old defendant, Judge T.S. Ellis III issued a sentence of 47 months behind bars.  Manafort, who was convicted of literally nothing remotely related to the Special Counsel’s actual mission, will receive credit for the 9 months of absurdly-punitive solitary confinement he has already served as a result of this continuing witch hunt.

This “light” sentence greatly harmed the sensibilities of the same Democrats everywhere who love seeing convicted rapists given probation, and who are currently embarked on a coordinated effort with the fake news media and entertainment industry to convince us all that pedophilia should be treated as a mental illness and not a crime.

“To impose a sentence of 19-24 years on Mr. Manafort would clearly be a disparity. In the end, I don’t think the guidelines range is at all appropriate,” Ellis said. “I think what I’ve done is sufficiently punitive, and anyone who disagrees should spend a day in a federal penitentiary,”

For those who haven’t been paying attention, Manafort was convicted of tax evasion and violations of campaign finance laws, all of which crimes occurred years before he ever met Donald Trump. When these same charges were alleged against Manafort and brought to the U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York during the Obama Administration, the SDNY felt they were not important enough to pursue.

But no crime is too petty to pursue when the American Gestapo is on a witch hunt. In the end, Manafort did the crimes, and he is going to do the time, just not the de facto life sentence that Herr Mueller and his evil minions wanted.

That’s justice.

Ok, bear with me – just trying to keep up here… – So, since Election Day, 2018, the national Democrat Party has now given its full-throated endorsement to:

  • Infanticide
  • White politicians wearing black face and Klan costumes and nicknamed “Coonman”
  • Tax rates of 70-90%
  • Taxing your assets, not just your income
  • Spending $32 Trillion on “Medicare for all”
  • Spending $30 Trillion on free college and student loan forgiveness
  • Spending $93 Trillion on the “Green New Deal”
  • Open borders
  • Any obvious hoax that targets the President of the United States or his supporters
  • Confiscating your guns
  • Teaching transgender ideology to your kindergarten children
  • Allowing people with male genitalia and musculature to steal athletic trophies from actual girls

And, as of yesterday evening…

  • Anti-Semitism

Am I missing anything?  I’m sure I must be – these people move so fast now in their efforts to utterly destroy American society and culture that it has become almost impossible to keep up.

I never in a million years thought I would actually write these words, but the real problem with the Democrats in congress now – and it’s a huge problem for all Americans as well – is that Nancy Pelosi is, for the first time ever, the actual adult in the room, and she has completely lost control. She has now lost control to such an extent that she and her fellow geriatric-ward leadership team can no longer convince their caucus to endorse a simple resolution to condemn the rank anti-Semitism that comes through the throat and Twitter feed of the Enemy Within, Minnesota Congressperson Ilhan Omar.

After Omar’s latest disparaging remarks about Jews on Monday, Democrat members of congress concerned about losing Jewish votes, led by New York’s Eliot Engel, announced they would demand the House of Representatives pass a resolution condemning Omar and anti-Semitism. But then all hell broke lose within the House Democrat caucus, as fellow anti-Semites like Alexandria Ocasio Cortez and Rashida Tlaib rushed to defend the Enemy Within.

Three days of chaotic haggling over the resolution’s language ensued, and last night the House approved a final resolution that condemns homophobia, Islamophobia, racism, sexism, child-abuse and even got in a reference about white supremacy and Charlottesville, but did not mention Ilhan Omar by name or the anti-Semitic remarks she had made.

Thus, Millennial college campus politics have now assumed control of the House Democrat Caucus. This is a very important moment in our nation’s history, not some random, minor event. The Party’s new inability to issue a simple condemnation of one bigoted member’s long-held and constantly-expressed anti-Semitic views, or otherwise punish her in any real way, signals that the Democrat Party is now prepared to discard its traditional stronghold on Jewish voters in favor of Muslims, just as, a decade ago, it began the process of discarding its traditional stronghold on organized labor in favor of illegal immigrants and open borders.

Democrats have been moving in this direction for several years now, but yesterday, March 7, 2019 is the day it became official. Henceforth, members of the Jewish faith who cast votes for Democrats are casting votes for their own destruction.

Aren’t all you Democrats proud?

*sigh*

Thanks to Donald J. Trump, America’s Time for Choosing has Come

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

Life at the tippy-top sure does increase the old carbon footprint. – Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the dim-witted freshman Democrat from the Bronx, or somewhere, took incoming fire from the leering press over the weekend when it was revealed that she isn’t exactly walking her Global Church of Climate Change talking points.

Fresh off of saying “Climate Change” is a “national emergency” that mandates the elimination of gasoline-powered cars and proclaiming that “We’re like, ‘The world is going to end in 12 years if we don’t address climate change.’ And, like, this is the war; this is our World War II,” it turns out that the ex- and possibly future-bartender has been guzzling the gas at pretty much the same rate as all of her high-carbon-footprint colleagues. The New York Post reported over the weekend that her campaign ran up bills on gas-powered cars totaling almost $30,000 even though her campaign headquarters was just 138 feet from the nearest New York Subway station.

Even more puzzling, her campaign racked up 66 airline flights totaling more than $25,000 even though she was running in a very geographically-compact district. Where were all these people flying to and from, and what campaign-related mission were the accomplishing?

Ocasio-Cortez responded to the report on her Twitter account – because of course she did – thusly:

So, hey, all you little people: She’s just “living in the world.” Life at the “tippy-top” is good, and her plans involve putting a lot of people to work to force YOU to reduce YOUR carbon footprint – they have nothing to do with how the elite that she is now a part of would continue to live once they have banished those of you who survive the economic disaster they create to live in your new 19th-century existence.

One thing’s for sure: It didn’t take her long to memorize those Al Gore/Leonardo DiCaprio talking points.

Now for something completely gross. – Here’s something in everyone’s future if Ocasio-Cortez and her society-destroying minions have their way: A company in Spain is now manufacturing pukey-looking “vegan steaks” with a 3-D printer. Stock up on the ribeyes and briskets while you still can, folks, because this is where these lunatics want to force us all to go. There is not enough ketchup on earth to cover up the after-taste of that slop.

Hey, another 1-percenter enters the race. – Ex-Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper, a former oil and gas geologist who made his fortune as a pioneer of Colorado’s micro-brewery industry, announced really, really early this morning that he’s going to run for the 2020 Democrat presidential nomination. Because, you know, if Jay Inslee (who?) and this Pete Buttigieg (wut?) guy can run, why not a guy with a chain of beer pubs?

Makes perfect sense to me.

They were just kiddin’ about that whole “Russia Collusion” thing. – If you thought that the end of the Robert Mueller witch hunt would mean the Democrats would allow the nation to return to some sense of normalcy and regular order in its national politics, well, I want a double shot of whatever it is you’ve been drinking.

The end of the Witch Hunt over the Russia Collusion fantasy concocted by the DOJ/FBI cabal only means that the Democrats in congress move onto the next phase of their 4-year effort to deconstruct this President and presidency. Thus, the House Judiciary Committee chaired by despicable New York congressman Jerrold Nadler will issue no fewer than 60 subpoenas seeking documents and testimony in its own Witch Hunt, which will attempt to dummy up a claim of “obstruction of justice” by President Donald Trump.

Nevermind that Mueller has already spent months trying to create that case and failed, nevermind that the whole fantasy is based on the President’s firing of Teenage Drama Queen James Comey, a man who every Democrat in Washington had publicly advocated firing – none of those things matter. What matters to the Democrats is keeping up the appearance of chaos in Washington, because they know it is literally their only hope of beating Trump in the 2020 election.

If they allow a return to normal order, this President would plow his way to a landslide victory over whichever candidate emerges from the Democrats’ field of miscreants, hacks, fake Indians, ageing punk rockers and beta-males that would rival Reagan’s thrashing of Walter Mondale in 1984. So there will be no normal order in Washington, folks. Instead, there will be 18 months of subpoenas, kangaroo courts and disgraceful displays of demagoguery, all of which will be treated seriously by the Democrat lapdogs who infest our nation’s fake news media.

There’s nothing any of us out here in Flyover Country can do about it, other than to be sure to turn out to vote for Trump in 2020, so you might as well just sit back and enjoy the spectacle.

Some of you have wondered why it is that I like to say that I never tire of typing the three glorious words “President Donald Trump.” Well, this is why. This exact thing. He has quite literally driven the entire Democrat Party stark, raving mad. Don’t misunderstand – Democrats were nuts long before Donald Trump ever thought about running for president. But in the past they felt the need to at least put up a pretense of normalcy. They weren’t anything like you and me, but they felt the need to make like they were in order to attract your votes, which is why people who were otherwise good and decent and fairly intelligent could justify voting for Democrats.

But now the mask is completely off. The pretense is gone. The Democrat Party, over just the past 30 days, has happily revealed itself to be the party of killing babies, the party of open borders, the party of socialist fascism, the party that is perfectly willing to do everything it can to protect woman abusers and guys nicknamed “CoonMan” if they hold elective office with a “D” next to their name.

It is no longer possible for good and decent people to cast their votes for Democrats. As Ronald Reagan famously said, “the time for choosing is upon us,” and there is no longer any place to hide.

Glorious.

That is all.

Sane Americans Should Treat the Insane Green New Deal as a Deadly Serious Matter

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

I repeat, we must take this insane “Green New Deal” very seriously… – because the Democrats aren’t kidding, hard as that might be for any sane person to believe. You may have noticed that the only part of the “Green New Deal” that has disappeared from the news media since its hysterically absurd rollout a few weeks back is the details.

The raging Bronx nitwit Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez quickly removed her third-grade-level talking points document from her website after it was widely panned on social media, but that hasn’t stopped the fake, “mainstream” news media from doing its dead-level best to keep the hoax alive. The Climate Scammers who run the New York Times Climate section published a huge essay last week in which they twisted themselves into pretzels of illogic and outright lies in order to declare the GND to be “technologically possible”, but also had enough integrity to point out that it would cost many, many trillions of dollars we do not have and getting authorized legislation passed would be near-impossible.

Those last two points were pretty much the only true things in the piece, so of course the same scammers issued an apology for including them in their otherwise-fantasy-based screed when all the social justice warriors on Twitter went ballistic on them. Because in today’s fake news media, promoting leftist politically-correct fantasy always take priority over arcane things like reporting simple facts.

As I mentioned in yesterday’s Week in Review, detestable Senator Dianne Feinstein was accosted by a group of 8,9, and 10 year-old children whose abusive parents are using them as political tools. Which I guess makes the parents even more detestable than Sen. Feinstein, come to think of it. Anyway, when these kids tried to bully Feinstein into reciting the Democrat GND religious dogma, the Senator, in a rare moment of lucidity, proceeded to lecture them on what an unworkable fantasy the thing is.

Naturally, Feinstein later apologized after – you guessed it – all the social justice warriors on Twitter went ballistic on her.  See how this works?

Longtime NBC news hack Andrea Mitchell, a decades-long promotor of the Climate Scam, became the latest target the Twitter social justice warrior thuggery when, on NBC’s Meet the Press show, she – accurately, for once in her sordid career – chastised those abusive parents, saying “Who are the adults who bring their kids, who don’t understand this stuff, seven, eight, nine, ten-year-olds. I understand the passion of children and how important it is, but to ambush a senator this way.” You could hear the SJW heads exploding in the background if you listen closely to the tape.

Mitchell went on to get into a back and forth with some raging fake green nitwit named Heather McGhee about some of the same points the NYTimes Climate people raised: It costs trillions, and you’ll never get it through congress. McGhee’s responses ranged from promoting fascist thuggery (of course) to rank ignorance about the legislative process, but no matter. By the mere act of questioning the GND, which has now become nothing less than the equivalent of the Book of Revelations in the Church of Global Warming’s Bible, even a devoted leftist news-faker like Andrea Mitchell now becomes an enemy of the religious zealots.

And there is the bottom line on this, folks: This is a religious cult we are dealing with here, and the entire Democrat Party is now a captive of it. You don’t have to believe me – all you have to do is look and see the Party’s presidential contenders all lining up to unthinkingly endorse the lunatic “plan” like so many lemmings running off the nearest cliff.

Their own literature states that, even if you could do all the insane things they advocate during the next 12 years – capture all the cow farts (or hey, just kill all the cows), eliminate the miracle of air flight, destroy the fossil fuels that supply 80% of global energy and make modern life possible and replace it all with rail lines to Hawaii and London and China and Australia and millions of gigantic windmills and solar farms scarring the breadth and depth of America, you would, maybe, in a perfect scenario, prevent 1 degree of “global warming.”

Yes, half the population would die within a year due to lack of reliable energy, but in AOC’s mind, that’s a small price to pay and hey, all those people assuming room temperature means that’s just that much less CO2 being emitted, since they aren’t breathing anymore. If you think I’m kidding, you need to look a little closer into the former bartender’s dead, beady eyes.

But all those facts are irrelevant anyway, aren’t they?

They’re irrelevant because arguing facts and logic and objective truth with people who are nothing more than zealous adherents to a religious cult will always fail. Any facts or logic or truth that fall outside of the dogma dictated by Pope Al Gore and Cardinals like AOC and that actor who was on the Titanic when it sank, or something, will fall on deaf ears, have you branded as a heretic and tarred and feathered on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram.

And that’s how they treat their philosophical supporters. Think how they will be prepared to treat all of you common people out there in flyover country if they ever regain the power necessary to really push this insanity, like they did with Obamacare in 2009-10.

This is serious stuff, people.  Deadly serious.

That is all.

The week kicked off with the whole Jussie Smollett hoax coming apart, and James Woods summed the great irony of it all in a single 280-character message, as only he can do.

Meanwhile, fellow hoaxters like the Creepy Porn Lawyer mourned Jussie’s exposure:

While Jussie’s effort to smear President Trump, his millions of supporters and the City of Chicago was falling apart, a CNN reporter was helping one of his hoax’s faithful fans try on jackets, because of course that’s what a CNN reporter would do:

Shameless Self-Promotion Alert!:  All of this hoaxing and the fake news media’s willing promotion of it for two solids weeks led me to write this piece, which is worth a read in case you missed it, and (hint, hint) worth sharing if you’ve already read it:

CBS’s Lara Logan, a rare actual ethical journalist in a mainstream media ocean of shameful news-fakers, put her career on the line on Monday by telling the unvarnished truth about her dying profession:

The no-good very bad week for the New York Times’s chosen candidate, Kamala Harris, continued, as she obviously had no earthly idea what one of her staffers had posted on her own Twitter feed about the Jussie Smollett hoax. You can bet the week was even worse for the staffer, though:

Another real journalist, the great Sharyl Attkisson, had a noble thought, but one with obvious stumbling blocks that would have to be overcome:

From our Clowns are Everywhere files, well, I give you Juan Williams:

It was just another magnificent week for making fun of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez …:

Radio Host Greg Budell – who invites me on his show from time to time – sums up the Commie’s candidacy in 16 words…:

Speaking of making fun of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, here’s a pure masterpiece of memery:

What happens when fake “greens” obstruct the construction of oil pipelines? Canada dumps 120,000 barrels per day of it onto trains, greatly increasing air pollution and the potential for fatal accidents. Because, Climate Change or something…:

I was planning to write about 1,000 words on how the fake news media would fake its “reporting” on the Smollett hoax as it continues to play out, but Undercover Huber summed it all up perfectly in just 280 characters, so I wrote about other stuff instead:

Sometimes I wish James Woods wouldn’t mince his words so much. It’s always so hard to figure out what he’s really thinking…:

Oh, hey, this also happened…:

Here, detestable California creep congressman Eric Swalwell tries to portray himself as a hero by walking an extra block for a cup of coffee.  It didn’t work out well for him at all…:

Oh, hey, this happened on Tuesday, too.:

How does any editor worth a damn allow this headline to make it to print?:

Oh, yeah, and here’s what happens when the fake “greens” like Andrew Cuomo refuse to allow the construction of new natural gas pipelines, i.e., people have no heat:

Is anyone surprised by this? Because it doesn’t surprise me at all. Not even a little bit:

Shameless Self-Promotion Alert!: I was really on a roll this week, and if you missed this piece summing up the ongoing hoaxes by Jussie and AOC’s “Green New Deal”, here’s your chance to take it in and (hint, hint) share it:

Prove me wrong…:

Pretty sure we reached that point back during the Reagan Administration, but your point is well-taken (and if you haven’t seen the clip of Sir Charles lampooning Smollett, you need to watch it):

The inevitable end game of fascist socialism continues to play out in Venezuela…:

When Ben Shapiro posed a very pertinent question about the shady plea deal federal prosecutors entered into with notorious pedophile Jeffrey Epstein, I had a ready answer about two of the most frequent visitors to his private island where all the shenanigans took place. Our fake news media’s ongoing refusal to report the truth about the Clintons is one of the greatest stains in the history of the Republic:

With the Weekly Standard having gone belly up, the idiot dozen remaining #NeverTrump nitwits have a new platform for spreading their stupidity. Not surprisingly, it adopts one of the favorite tactics of leftwing activists. If this surprises you, you haven’t been paying attention to the leftward tilt of these fake “conservatives”, not that I blame you.:

And now for some good news that came through the ol’ Twitter feed on Friday…:

This was the NICEST thing I could think to say about Michael Steele on Friday evening when his despicable remarks came across the wires.  No wonder the RNC went to pot when he was serving as its chairman.:

Despicable Dianne Feinstein had a rare moment of cogent thought this week, which I captured here, even though I misspelled “admirable” in the process.:

Australians are already finding out the desperate costs of implementing just a tiny portion of the “Green New Deal” the hard way.:

Man, Breadline Bernie really needs to work on his Twitter self-awareness.:

In case you missed it due to the fake news media blackout on all the wonderful things President Donald Trump is accomplishing on your behalf, this happened this week.:

With all the reports about Amy Klobuchar forcing a staffer to clean the comb she’d taken out of her purse to eat a salad, it seemed to me everyone was missing the most disgusting part of it all.:

Since no one in the fake news media would dream of fact-checking leftwing activist and Q-list actress Alyssa Milano, I did it for them.:

Brett Kavanaugh is all like, “geez, I wish she and her fellow Democrats and the fake news media would have taken this attitude back in October.”:

Sometimes the Climate Scammers mess up and let the truth slip out…:

Speaking of Climate Scammers, the great Steve Goddard captures their essence with the perfect meme.:

Was this mean of me? Or were you thinking it too?:

And finally, I leave you with yet another of the best in a great week for AOC Twitter memes.:

That is all.

The Week in Review: Anti-Semite Dems, High Treason and Jussie Smollett

The Campaign Update Week in Review
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

The Week in Review, courtesy of the @GDBlackmon Twitter Feed…

James Woods started the week out with a tribute to the Democrats’ “Green New Deal,” and things only got smellier from there:

If you aren’t following @mad_liberals on Twitter, you’re missing out on a ton of fun:

That time Minnesota Cong. Ilhan Omar apologized for being a raging anti-Semite, but really didn’t apologize at all:

If only we had an education system that actually educated anyone…:

Hey, I had no idea so many Virginia Democrats went to Rice University back in the day!:

Summing up the “competing” rallies between the POTUS and a loser in a senate race out in El Paso Monday night.:

The perfect endorsement for today’s Democrat Party.:

Why not? All the other communists are doing it.:

Kamala Harris is slowly morphing into Hillary Clinton before our very eyes. No wonder she’s become CNN’s chosen child.:

In actual real news from Tuesday…:

The inevitable outcome of the Democrats’ war on masculinity.:

Here I put college students’ current infatuation with AOC into proper historical context.:

Well, God Bless Texas, then.:

Speaking of Texas and energy…:

Seriously, is there any true thing Alexandria Ocasio Cortez actually does know? It is truly stunning that a human being can hold a college degree and be so breathtakingly ignorant.:

High treason news broke out all over the place on Thursday, and your fake news media scrambled to portray it as just a bunch of patriotic FBI guys doing their best to protect the nation from the evil Orange Man. Because of course they did. *sigh*:

Speaking of faking the news, the folks at Politico seem to be ramping up their efforts in that competition in recent weeks.:

Then this happened…:

…and the nitwit who led the effort opposing 25,000 new jobs and tens of billions in annual economic impact celebrated, because what else would a raging ignoramus do?:

As Jussie Smollett’s obvious hoax began officially falling apart, Chuck Ross accurately predicted the way all the fake journalists who did everything they could to promote the effort to smear every Trump supporter in the nation would respond.:

This explains how the Enemy Within, Ilhan Omar, got her seat in congress.:

Quick! Somebody load a chopper with food and get it up there!:

Why, it almost seems as if the fake news media is trying to mislead the public on Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s true health status. Go figure.:

Robert Mueller’s Big Bag of Nothing Springs Another Leak

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

Oh, that report was fake news? You don’t say. –  After having spent the last year and a half slandering Donald Trump, Jr. and his father, President Donald Trump, alleging that telephone records somehow showed that Trump, Jr. had called his father just prior to his famous meeting with several Russian nationals at Trump Tower in October of 2016, the news fakers at CNN scrambled to cover their filthy tracks yesterday. The implication of course being that then-Candidate Trump was fully aware in advance of this meeting and approved of it, something President Trump has consistently denied.

In a story hilariously headlined as being somehow “Exclusive”, CNN meekly informed its tiny online audience that “Senate investigators have obtained new information showing Donald Trump Jr.’s mysterious phone calls ahead of the 2016 Trump Tower meeting were not with his father, three sources with knowledge of the matter told CNN.”

Oh.  You don’t say. Tell us more.

“Records provided to the Senate Intelligence Committee show the calls were between Trump Jr. and two of his business associates, the sources said, and appear to contradict Democrats’ long-held suspicions that the blocked number was from then-candidate Donald Trump.”

You have to love the phrasing there. To be clear and actually honest – in direct contrast to CNN’s daily practices – it isn’t just the “Democrats” who have been promoting the massive lies about what was a simple and completely legal meeting in which Trump, Jr. and a few others working on the Trump Campaign thought they might get some intel on their Democrat opponents. CNN digital and on-air personnel have been happily and incessantly doing the same for a year and a half now.

And it hasn’t been limited to CNN, oh, no. We’ve seen the same sort of yellow fake journalism about this meeting from the New York Times, the Washington Post, MSNBC, ABC, CBS, NBC and the whole of the fake news media establishment – a literal orgy of fake news gluttony about a single 40-minute meeting, the type of which any presidential campaign is going to conduct with outside sources several times a week.

Meanwhile, these same fake media outlets have to literally be forced into superficially mentioning the fact that the Pantsuit Princess’s campaign and the DNC shelled out MILLIONS of dollars paying the Perkins Coie law firm and Fusion GPS to coordinate with Russian agents to compile the fake Trump Dossier that has served as basically the sole basis for the last two years of endless and mindless investigations.

Bug-eyed Adam Schiff, the main “Democrat” referenced in the CNN report as having tirelessly pushed this fake story, must be devastated. Remember, when Donald Trump, Jr. testified behind closed doors before the House Intelligence Committee last year, details about his testimony were leaked to CNN while the hearing was still ongoing. The initial CNN report aired just minutes after Schiff had mysteriously left the hearing room for a few moments. Such a coincidence there.

In case you missed it, acting Attorney General Matt Whitaker told the leering press on Monday that he has been fully briefed on the Mueller Witch Hunt and believes it will be wrapped up soon. This came as a big shock to all the leftwingers who still cling to the belief that Mueller is going to just keep going throughout the duration of the Trump presidency, but I told you that it was pretty obvious last September that Mueller was in the process of slowly winding the thing down.

The reason why Mueller is likely to wrap it all up soon and issue his final report is exemplified by the collapse of this fake Trump Tower Meeting story: He is holding a big bag of nothing when it comes to  “Russia Collusion” and that bag has a bunch of leaks. The entire thing is a fantasy constructed by the Democrats and the fake news media, and, as Alan Dershowitz pointed out earlier this week, Mueller has yet to indict any American on any charge related to what his mission was supposed to be.

You can’t indict a sitting President on smoke and mirrors, and at the end of the day, that is all Mueller has. Time to wrap up this stain on our nation’s history. Long past time, in fact.

It’s 100% sure to work. – The simplest and surest way to get the Democrats and fake news media to stop trying to normalize pedophilia and infanticide in our society would be for President Trump to endorse both practices.  Then, all the Democrats and fake reporters would immediately be, like, totally against them. It’s a foolproof plan.

Ocasio Cortez Update! – She’s like an 8 year-old who just completed her first piano recital:

So now we know she’s pretty adept at reading a script prepared by others. Cool. Now, if she can master the practice of taking both sides of every issue depending on what audience she happens to be talking to, she’ll be just like a real member of congress.

Fake News, WaPo Headline Edition. – Check out how the news fakers at the Washington Post attempted to turn the Virginia Democrats-supporting-infanticide incident into a negative for the Republicans, and Ben Shapiro’s astute response:

Hey, you knew Planned Parenthood had to be pushing the infanticide bills. – Another bit of news from our You Don’t Say! department:

Some things in life are just too predictable.

Soledad O’Brien Personifies the Media’s All-Consuming Hubris

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Soledad O’Brien: News Faker of the Week! – Soledad O’Brien, who learned the fake news trade at MSNBC and CNN and now does some sort of syndicated talk show, got on her Twitter feed yesterday to join D-list actress Alyssa Milano in bashing President Donald Trump for not visiting U.S. troops overseas over the holidays.

When former Fox News host Brit Hume pointed out that, by the time Milano had tweeted out her insult, the President and First Lady Melania Trump were already in Iraq preparing to visit the troops there, the hubris-addled O’Brien replied by saying, “Shaming him seems to work.”

Think of how demented a person must be to believe that, because she and her fake media pals started criticizing him over the weekend for presumably not visiting troops, the President of the United States of America dropped everything he was doing, jumped on Air Force One and took off for Iraq. It is the definition of unbridled hubris.

As Dan Bongino pointed out yesterday evening, Presidential trips overseas are logistical nightmares.  They cannot be done on the spur of the moment, simply because a president gets upset about bad news reports and wants to make it stop. These things must be planned weeks in advance, with every moment of the president’s time accounted for, allowing time for the Secret Service to set up appropriate security at every stop along the way.

Despite the petulantly-negative media coverage – because of course it was negative – the President and First Lady received overwhelmingly enthusiastic receptions from troops in Iraq and later in Germany. Here are some photos:

One more thing: Melania Trump became the first First Lady to visit troops overseas since Laura Bush made the trip in 2005. You won’t see Soledad or Alyssa making any positive tweets about that little fact, because hey, Michelle might be watching.

After all, you never saw any of them holding “Hopey Changey” hats when Obama visited. – CNN’s big outrage story related to the POTUS/First Lady’s visit to Iraq was about all the troops who showed up with red MAGA caps. CNN’s crack legal team has decided that the President’s signing of several of them puts the soldiers in violation of military regulations, because of course CNN is going to say that.

Oh, and the media also criticized Melania for wearing Timberland boots during the trip. I kid you not.

*sigh*

That time when Morning Joe pretended to channel Jesus Christ:

Ocasio-Cortez Update:

For the record, Mary, Joseph and their baby were not “refugees” in any sense of that word. They in fact traveled to Bethlehem in order to register for the Roman census. But in the fantasy world that Ms. Cortez occupies, there is no such thing as “truth.” Which, come to think of it, just makes her your common, every day socialist. Nothing special at all.

When is 42% reported as 5.1%? When the U.S. media is reporting it! – The Wall Street Journal published a piece celebrating strong U.S. consumer spending around this Christmas season.  Here’s a quote:

Shoppers delivered the strongest holiday sales increase for U.S. retailers in six years, according to early data.  Total U.S. retail sales, excluding automobiles, rose 5.1% between Nov. 1 and Dec. 24 from a year earlier, according to Mastercard SpendingPulse, which tracks both online and in-store spending with all forms of payment. Overall, U.S. consumers spent over $850 billion this holiday season, according to Mastercard.

The Wall Street Journal owes its readers an explanation.

Dear Media: That Oval Office Dust Up Is Why Trump Won

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Beto Mania Update:  A guy calling himself “Michael Falotico” (it may be his real name, but you just never know on social media these days) on Twitter responded to my “Day of Beto” yesterday by saying “Yes, I agree with you that Beto will be the Democrats’ nominee for President in 2020. I may differ with you, however, in that I think he could win the whole thing, i.e., get elected President.”

Well, we don’t differ at all, Michael. Sitting here almost two years prior to Election Day 2020, I also think Beto will be the Dem nominee and “could” well win the general election to become the 46th president of the United States. Admittedly, the odds are against all of that happening for our favorite fake Hispanic Texan, but hey, stranger things have happened – just happened in 2016, in fact, and in 2008 before that.

2008 is especially relevant where Irish Bob is concerned. As I told an audience a few weeks ago, there is no doubt that many national Democrat honchos and money handlers see Irish Bob as their next Barack Obama: A young, handsome, slick talker who does well on TV and can get the ignorant masses riled up, a human blank slate who looks good in a suit onto which all of their party’s various agitated factions can project their fondest dreams. Other than his skin color and the fact that there is no doubt he was born in the United States of America, Irish Bob is in fact a virtual Obama clone.

Yes, O’Rourke is a completely unqualified socialist crackpot. But Irish Bob is a real threat here, precisely because the Democrats already proved in 2008 that the American public can be brainwashed into accepting a completely unqualified socialist crackpot to lead the country down the road to ruin.

So yeah, he “could” win it all, and despite my fondness for making fun of him (it’s low-hanging fruit, I know, but I have no shame in that regard) I do take the prospect of him very seriously. President Trump and all other Republicans should do the same.

Speaking of President Donald J. Trump… – Make no mistake about it, despite the all-fake-all-the-time reporting all over the news media about his live-televised dust up with San Fran Nan and Chuck Schumer in the Oval Office, the President pummeled his Democrat opponents.  All you have to do is look at the body language from the two Democrats as the thing went on to know that.

Schumer was so intimidated that he couldn’t look the President in the eye the entire time. Pelosi was so flustered she had a hard time remembering which branch of government she represented.

Meanwhile, the President got exactly what he wanted:

  • Both Pelosi and Schumer begging him to shoo the leering press out of the room;
  • Both Pelosi and Schumer railing against doing anything effective to improve border security; and
  • Trump promising to shut down 14% of the federal government if he doesn’t get significant funding for the border wall in a government funding bill that must be passed by December 21.

That third point had #NeverTrump dimwits like A.B. Stoddard and Bill Kristol cackling that Trump had somehow “lost” in this debate, which simply proves that she and her fellow dimwits still have learned absolutely nothing about the current President. Their thesis is that now Trump will get blamed for any government shutdown and oh, my, isn’t that terrible for him.

Well, hell, Trump couldn’t care less about that. The media blames him for everything that happens in any event – what else would be new in that scenario? If you’re the President, might as well embrace that deal and own it.

The spectacle of Pelosi and Schumer begging the President to take the discussion behind closed doors just proves yet again that the Democrats care nothing about government transparency. Trump revels in this stuff, and is thrilled to be the one guy sitting in that room advocating for the need for increased border security, which is a winning issue for the Republicans, not the Democrats.

Stuff like what happened in the Oval Office yesterday is exactly why Trump won in the first place. He wasn’t put in that job to have nice, polite discourse with swamp-dwelling snakes like Pelosi and Schumer behind closed doors. He was put in that job to break all the china, stain all the carpets and color all the walls with crayons in the D.C. Establishment’s comfortable abode.

Yesterday was a very good day for Donald Trump. Don’t let the fake news media kid you otherwise.

My only question is, why was that Mike Pence mannequin sitting in that other chair?

In 17 minutes, did not manage to utter a word. What good is he?

From our News You Won’t See Reported In The New York Times Files:

Meet the New Attorney General, Same as the Old Attorney General

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Paris Burning Watch:

Very predictable next step for President Emanuel Macron and his globalist government: Shut down the country’s Internet and other communications, as the government continues its goosestep towards outright fascist thuggery.

The government announced on Friday that it has deployed 89,000 (!) riot police throughout the country in preparation for today’s demonstrations by the “yellow vest” demonstrators, who are protesting the government’s planned implementation of a confiscatory carbon tax it claims will help meet France’s emissions goals under the Paris Climate Accords. The yellow vest demonstrations began as peaceful events a few weeks ago but have turned increasingly violent as they have inevitably been infiltrated by radicals from both the left and the right.

As I write this early Saturday in the U.S. there have already been more than 500 arrests made in Paris, as police began the day by using tear gas on the demonstrators around the Arc de Triomphe.  As Reuters reports:

“A police spokeswoman told reporters there were about 1,500 protesters on the Champs Elysees boulevard and authorities said 211 people had been arrested after police found weapons such as hammers, baseball bats and metal petanque balls on them.”

Somewhat hilariously, the Reuters report contains this passage a few paragraphs later:

“We will do all we can so that today can be a day without violence, so that the dialogue that we started this week can continue in the best possible circumstances,” Prime Minister Edouard Philippe said on French television.

This situation is completely out of hand at this point, deteriorating every day, and Philippe and Macron obviously have not the slightest clue about how to deal effectively with it. Thus, the most likely expectations should be for further efforts to crack down on the movement and the population at large. Because that’s what globalist/socialist governments do.

Ocasio Cortez Watch:

Speaking of things globalist/socialists like to do, this happened on Friday.:

Yes, it’s true – after Donald Trump Jr. re-tweeted a meme about our intrepid new congresswoman from one of the outer-boroughs of New York City (is it Queens?), the  mental midget tweeted a reminder to him that that was all, like, dumb and stuff because she was about to, you know, kinda, like have subpoena power and stuff like that.

Clearly an abuse of power, clearly a violation of congressional ethics and we can count on the Republicans in congress to clearly do absolutely nothing about it.  Because that’s who they are, and what they do – or don’t do, in this case.

Right on Cue, Meet our New Bush-ite Attorney General Nominee. – How ironic is it that, the day after late former President George Herbert Walker Bush was laid to rest in College Station, current President Donald Trump names William Barr, who served Bush 41 as Attorney General, as his nominee to become the AG again, 24 years later? Why, it’s almost as if one event led to another this week.

If President Trump’s thought was that the nomination of a man who had served the ex-President who the Democrats and their fake news media agents had praised all week long might be confirmed by the senate in a dignified and orderly process, well, he was kidding himself. All the demented creeps at CNN and MSNBC immediately flew into high character assassination gear, as did Democrat politicians who immediately began calling for Barr to recuse himself from pretty much everything if he is ultimately confirmed.

Despicable Vermont Senator, the relic Pat Leahy, had this to say:

“I have known Bill Barr a long time.  He has a long record in both the private sector and public service that needs to be thoroughly vetted by the senate. This includes recent, troubling comments about investigations of keen interest to the President who is nominating him.”

In other words, Barr has expressed thoughts about the Mueller investigation, and thus must recuse himself if he wants any Democrat votes in favor of his confirmation. Apparently, only a person who is basically a blind, deaf mute where Mueller’s Witch Hunt is concerned is any longer qualified to serve in the eyes of Senate Democrats.

Barr has a reputation in Washington as an upright and honorable man. As a reminder, so did Robert Mueller when he was nominated, and we now see clearly what that means and doesn’t mean. Barr is not someone who is going to come into the AG job and immediately restart investigations into Uranium One and all the myriad other Clinton/Obama wrongdoing.

On the other hand, assuming DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz and Utah U.S. Attorney John Huber really have been conducting real investigations of their own, Barr is also not someone who is going to come into the AG job and shut those down.

And the reality about Mueller and his evil minions is this: They have nothing real where President Trump is concerned and are systematically winding their fake investigation down and preparing their final report, which they intend to be a roadmap for impeachment by the new Democrat majority in the House. That’s all the Mueller effort ever was, and it becomes more and more obvious with each passing day. President Trump has no intention of interfering with Mueller and never did, something the Democrats and fake news media appear incapable of comprehending.

What Barr represents to President Trump is an extremely well-qualified and safe pick for the job.  In the end, when all the posturing by creeps like Leahy is said and done, Barr will end up with the support of all 53 Republicans in next year’s U.S. Senate, and support from just enough Democrats to get over the 60 vote bar needed to be confirmed to the job.

One other key thing to keep in mind about William Barr is that he served in a Bush Administration that built many miles of steel wall along our Southern border, and paid for it from the Defense budget, which is perfectly legal and proper once a president makes a finding that it is necessary for national security. Why President Trump has failed to go this route is anyone’s guess – perhaps he just wanted to give Paul Ryan and Mitch McConnell every opportunity possible to get their jobs done – but assuming Barr is confirmed, Trump will have an AG who understands the President has full authority to go down that road.

Just food for thought.

That is all.

Mueller is Evil, B**ch Fight on The View, Paris Still Burning, Creepy Porn Lawyer Gone – All in One Day!

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

“Ok, listen up. Here’s the plan: Strzok falsifies the 302s from his interview with Flynn. Then we bully him for months, raid his home, threaten his family, get a false guilty plea from him. And then…we let him off. Pure evil, right?” – Right. American Gestapo Chief, er, ‘special counsel’ Robert Mueller sent his 12 month overdue sentencing memo for General Mike Flynn to the judge in the case on Tuesday, and guess what? It calls for a fine (because ruining him financially just isn’t enough for Mueller and his evil minions) and this:

“Given the defendant’s substantial assistance and other considerations set forth below, a sentence at the low end of the guideline range—including a sentence that does not impose a term of incarceration—is appropriate and warranted.”

We should all be happy with the prospect of an American who has served this country like General Flynn possibly avoiding jail time in this fiasco. But every American, no matter how mindlessly filled with hatred against President Donald Trump they might be, should be outraged that Flynn spent the last two years being put through this un-American, Nazi-like process by Mueller and his evil minions.

It’s an utter, damnable disgrace.

Wait. In 2016 he told us that the Pantsuit Princess was the most qualified person EVER. – Joe Biden, on a book tour like seemingly everyone else on earth, told an audience of multiples of two in Missoula, MT that “I’ll be as straight with you as I can. I think I’m the most qualified person in the country to be president. The issues that we face as a country today are the issues that have been in my wheelhouse, that I’ve worked on my whole life.”

No word if he went on to admit that he had been consistently wrong about all of those issues he’s been working on his whole life, but the odds are against it.

Also, why didn’t any of the “reporters” present think to ask the ex-VP why it is that, if he has been working on these issues his whole life, they all still persist today? But hey, asking that question would have required curiosity and integrity, so obviously it did not get asked.

*sigh*

Paris Burning Watch:

Yes, the “yellow-vest” protest movement that has been burning the streets of Paris for the last two weeks has won a temporary reprieve from the confiscatory carbon tax that the socialist government of Emanuel Macron planned to impose on January 1 in its fool’s effort to “do something” to fight “climate change.”

But only for six months. The French should not kid themselves this is any sort of permanent victory.  The quotes from French Prime Minister Edouard Philippe in this Reuters story are telling:

Prime Minister Edouard Philippe said anyone would have “to be deaf or blind” not to see or hear the roiling anger on the streets over a policy that Macron has defended as critical to combating climate change.

“The French who have donned yellow vests want taxes to drop, and work to pay. That’s also what we want. If I didn’t manage to explain it, if the ruling majority didn’t manage to convince the French, then something must change,” said Philippe.

“No tax is worth jeopardizing the unity of the nation.”

He warned citizens, however, that they could not expect better public services and lower taxes.

“If the events of recent days have shown us one thing, it’s that the French want neither an increase in taxes or new taxes. If the tax-take falls then spending must fall, because we don’t want to pass our debts on to our children. And those debts are already sizeable,” he said.

In other words, over the next six months Macron and Philippe plan to “explain” the confiscatory tax plan designed to make it too expensive for working class French citizens to drive cars or run air conditioners by threatening them with massive cuts to the country’s social services and programs targeting the working and middle class. These cuts would do nothing to fight “climate change,” but the hope is that they will do much to frighten the public into accepting the carbon tax as a less unpleasant alternative.

This is classic leftist government bullying, along the lines of “the beatings will continue until morale improves.”

One spokesman for the “yellow vest” protesters responded to the temporary tax suspension by telling a reporter, “We are being taken for fools.”  Why yes, yes you are.

Meanwhile, from the world of #NeverTrump #Nitwittery…

#NeverTrump nitwit stalwart Max Boot had this to say about Macron back in 2017, and it is glorious:

That’s quite the take, there, Max.  Holy crap.

Speaking of climate change…: If you’re still worried about that U.S. Climate Assessment that was released the day after Thanksgiving, you should take 7 minutes to read this:

Bjorn Lomborg is a real climate scientist, but he’s a social outcast among his peer group because he chooses to tell the truth about sham reports like this one. Again, it’s a very easy read that only takes a few minutes, but it thoroughly exposes how the authors of this report – and our fake news media –  attempted to defraud the American public.  Again.

Read it.  You’ll be glad you did.

Seriously, somebody help me out here…:

This one’s rated PG-13, but it’s hilarious…:

Creepy Porn Lawyer watch:

Don’t go away mad, Creepy Porn Lawyer, just go away…

Man, what a loss that is, right?  Whew.

Progressivism is a Dangerous Mental Disease

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Oh, hey, we’re prosecuting people for lying to congress now? –  Former Trump lawyer Michael Cohen pleaded guilty to a count of lying to congress on Thursday, becoming the 7th person in our nation’s entire history to be prosecuted for this particular crime.  Yes, you read that right – the 7th one.

This of course is just a continuation of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s campaign of intimidation and abuse of power in his fake investigation into the Democrat/Media “Russia Collusion” fantasy play. This abusive process has already bullied General Mike Flynn into a guilty plea on a process crime and is now focused on fringe players like Jerome Corsi and Roger Stone.

As the great Mollie Hemingway points out in a piece at the Federalist this morning, Mueller and his cronies like Jim Comey have a long history of trading in this sort of bullying of witnesses into admissions of process crimes in order to claim scalps.  It’s well worth the 5 minutes it takes to read it – truly eye-opening, in fact.

And if you’re thinking, hey, maybe next Mueller will go get known congressional perjurers Comey, James Clapper and John Brennan, well, stop living in that dream world, because Mueller is a guy who never targets members of the deep state club, in which he is a lifelong member.

Ocasio Cortez Watch:

No?  Neither can I. – Paul Ryan ended his 20-year career in congress on Thursday. Can you list his major achievements?

First, the Social Justice Warriors came for Frosty the Snowman, and we did nothing. Then they came for A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving, and we did nothing. Now, they’re coming for Rudolph the Rednosed Reindeer:

*sigh*

Progressivism is a very dangerous mental disease.  But then, you already knew that, didn’t you?

Speaking of mentally-diseased progressives… – Who can forget yesterday, when top aide to and spokesman for The Pantsuit Princess, the completely deranged Philippe Reines, admitted he doesn’t wear pants when he appears on television, and is damn proud of it. We know this because he was caught on tape as he rampaged through the halls of the Fox News studios yesterday after losing yet another on-air debate with a conservative counterpart.

I swear I don’t make this stuff up.

 

Reines responded with a tweet, because of course he did:

Oh.  Well, then, that makes it all better.

*sigh*

Progressivsim has also become dangerously synonymous to anti-Semitism, in case you haven’t noticed. – CNN decided it had to sever its long, close ties to one of many, many, many progressive paid contributors, Marc Lamont Hill, on Thursday, after Hill had made an inflammatory anti-Israel speech at the United Nations that the Anti-Defamation League declared to anti-Semitic.

In his speech, Hill called for a “free Palestine from the river to the sea”, a term that is commonly used by Hamas and other Muslim terrorist groups.  Opposition to Israel’s very existence and blind acceptance and promotion of radical Islam and Sharia law have become major tenets of the Progressive cult over the past decade. It is simply reality that you cannot be an accepted part of the Progressive “in crowd” and not hold what are undeniably anti-Semitic views.

This is a mental disorder, plain and simple, and a very dangerous one. Its belief system dominates today’s Democrat Party and our national news media, and it works every day to brainwash the public at large. It’s fun to make fun of Progressives – I do it here at the Campaign Update each and every day – but it is vitally important that we “normals” out here in Flyover Country recognize these people for what they are and take them very, very seriously.

Because they basically believe everything the Nazis believed, and have many more means at their disposal for getting their hateful messages to the public. The next time we elect one of them to the presidency, things are going to get very, very ugly.

That is all.

Are You Ready for Beto 2020? You’d Better Be.

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Hey, remember all that media-fed drama about whether San Fran Nan would be our next Speaker of the House? –  Yeah, that was all just a lot of stuff and nonsense, as the late, great James Kilpatrick liked to say.

On Wednesday, the Democrat sheep in the House of Representatives, after having been cajoled and arm-twisted and outright threatened by Nancy Pelosi for the last few weeks, overwhelmingly voted to return the despicable California representative to the Speaker’s chair, from whence she shall come to judge the quick and the dead in the House for the next two years. The vote of the Democrat caucus members was 203 for Pelosi and just 32 against, demonstrating yet again how painfully hard it is to find a spine anywhere among that pathetic collection of grifters, thugs and brown-nosers.

Pelosi will still need to find 15 additional votes when the full House votes to formally elect its new speaker in January, but anyone who doubts she will find them among her own caucus or self-aggrandizing Republicans is living in a dream world.  Elections have consequences, and having stuttering, stammering, doddering Nan as Speaker is the main consequence of the election just past.

One can only hope. – President Donald Trump caused a major media meltdown early yesterday when re-tweeted this message to his followers:

Now that Jeff Sessions is no longer attorney general, there does seem to be hope that such a happy outcome could be looming around the corner. Make no mistake about it: The fear of something like this taking place is why Democrats have been so focused on tarring and feathering acting Attorney General Matt Whitaker since Trump appointed him to that position. The arguments that Whitaker’s appointment was somehow unconstitutional are completely without merit, nothing more than an effort by Democrats and their media agents to assassinate Whitaker’s character.

Whether anything like it ever comes about is anyone’s guess, but there is no doubt it is on the President’s mind, given that he issued the following tweets this morning:

…and…

$40 million to investigate the “Russia collusion” Democrat fantasy play. Your fake news media loves to claim that Mueller has obtained dozens of indictments and several guilty pleas and convictions of various fringe players, but how many of those are in any way related to his supposed mission? What he has obtained is what every previous special counsel ended up getting: a series of process crimes and prosecutions for activities that are wholly unrelated to what he was supposed to be looking into.

Yes, treason trials would be nice, but Whitaker has been in his new job for more than three weeks now, and so far there is no indication that any such effort is underway at our utterly corrupted Department of Justice. The President will no doubt be naming a permanent replacement for Sessions soon – if Whitaker wishes to be remembered as anything more than a placeholder, it’s time to get cracking.

Ocasio Cortez Watch:

Are you ready for President Beto? – I’m going to lay down this marker right here today: Irish Bob O’Rourke will be the Democrat presidential nominee in 2020, and we had all better take him very, very seriously.

Many readers will scoff at reading this. After all, what is Irish Bob other than a recent loser in a Texas senate race, right? Yeah, well, that’s right, as far as it goes.

But here’s what else Irish Bob is: He’s the perfect, ideal Democrat nominee.

Think about it – the man is an instant replay of Barack Hussein Obama.  He’s young, he’s good-looking, he is articulate, he is extremely skilled at parroting approved Democrat/media talking points, he is completely without any substance whatsoever, and he is a blank slate on which sheepish Democrat voters can project any set of policy positions and pipe dreams that enter into their tiny minds.

Obama, 2.0.

But here’s the main thing that makes Irish Bob the odds-on favorite to come away with the 2020 Democrat nomination: He’s a billionaire. Not only that, he’s a billionaire who can raise money from the mindless cretins in Hollywood and New York like no one else. This is a guy who collected and spent the unheard-of sum of $80 million on a senate race. Yes, he still lost, but he was able to turn what would have been a 10-15 point loss by any other Democrat into a somewhat nail-biting 3-point loss on Election Night. You can say that was just a ‘moral victory,’ but it also was the closest statewide race any Texas Democrat has run in a quarter of a century.

We are going to have 20-30 candidates lined up seeking the Democrat nomination by mid-year next year. They’re all going to have their own personal appeal, their own strategies, their own personal resumes and policy positions, but at the end of the day the winner in that long slog of a race is going to be the person who can raise and deploy the money necessary to mount a campaign in all 50 states.

Kamala Harris is young, good-looking and articulate. So is Cory Booker. So is Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti. So is Kirsten Gillibrand. Joe Biden and the Commie have already proved they can inspire the Democrat masses. Hillary Clinton is probably going to run again. New York Governor Andrew Cuomo is also going to run. Fauxcahontas is sending up the “I’m running, too” smoke signals. On and on and on the list of likely 2020 Democrat candidates goes. Thinking people can laugh about them, but thinking people must also recognize they all have their own certain appeal to the party’s voter base.

But only one potential candidate is a billioniare, capable of pouring as much of money as he needs into the nominating process. That one person is Irish Bob O’Rourke.

We can laugh about him now – I laugh about him every day – but we’d also best take him very, very seriously.  Because he’s most likely going to be your Democrat nominee in 2020.

That is all.

The Guardian Beclowns Itself in Mad Rush to Fake the News

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Was that wrong? Is there, like, a rule against that? –  It turns out that there actually is a rule against wedding photographers having sex with an invited wedding guest while the reception is ongoing, and then urinating on a tree when the cops show up to investigate.

That was actually a revelation to one Katie Mehta, 26, who moonlights in the Weatherford, Texas area as a wedding photographer when her swimsuit modeling career isn’t producing enough revenue. When the deputy sheriff providing security for the wedding was alerted by other guests to some illicit sounds coming from an ante room, he found the comely camera clicker engaged in some hanky-panky with one of the guests. His efforts to disentangle the pair were rewarded with a profanity-laced verbal assault. When he escorted the young professional out of the hall, she broke free and promptly rushed over to the nearest tree where she allegedly began to relieve herself in the same manner as your pet labrador does on his morning walk.

By that time the local police had shown up and promptly took her to the pokey.  Shockingly, one of the arresting officers stated that the frisky Ms. Mehta “smelled strongly of alcohol.” Go figure.

Displaying a similar type of anti-social behavior, the newsfakers at The Guardian mounted a strong challenge to CNN and the New York Times for this week’s title of Fakest News Outlet, filing a report, citing anonymous sources of course, claiming that former Trump Campaign Chairman Paul Manafort had visited Wikileaks founder Julian Assange no less than three times in 2013, 2015 and 2016, the last meeting taking place just weeks before the DNC’s hacked emails were made public during the midst of the presidential campaign.

Given that Assange has been holed-up in London’s Ecuadorian embassy in order to avoid prosecution for all of that time, and there are dozens of surveillance cameras on every block in that city, my immediate reaction to this story was that it was a rather pathetic attempt at the sort of news fakery in which CNN and the Times have cornered the market over the past few years.  Obviously, had Paul Manafort actually ever visited Assange at the Ecuadorian embassy, not only would formal official records exist of those visits, but there would be copious amounts of video evidence as well.  I mean, c’mon, Manafort’s a big, distinctive-looking guy – if he had really gone to see Assange in the midst of the 2016 campaign, we’d have had absolute, irrefutable proof of that visit in 2016.

Let’s also remember that Manafort had been under FBI surveillance since 2014 due to his lobbying efforts – in partnership with Tony Podesta – on behalf of the Ukrainian government. Are we to really believe that he would somehow be able to visit the notorious founder of Wikileaks, entering through the front door of the Ecuadorian embassy in London, without the FBI noticing?

Wikileaks responded immediately and somewhat hilariously to the story with a message on its Twitter account: “Remember this day when the Guardian permitted a serial fabricator to totally destroy the paper’s reputation. @WikiLeaks is willing to bet the Guardian a million dollars and its editor’s head that Manafort never met Assange.” As of this writing, neither the Guardian nor its editor’s head have responded.

It took Manafort a little longer to get a response out to the story – he is in federal prison, after all – but when he did, his denial was similarly unambiguous:

“This story is totally false and deliberately libelous. I have never met Julian Assange or anyone connected to him. I have never been contacted by anyone connected to Wikileaks, either directly or indirectly. I have never reached out to Assange or Wikileaks on any matter. We are considering all legal options against the Guardian who proceeded with this story even after being notified by my representatives that it was false.”

It is a sad fact of modern life that news-faking goes on 24 hours a day, 7 days a week in our fake news media, but it has been awhile since any major news outlet file a report as manifestly fake as this one in an obvious effort to try to prop up the Democrats’ dying “Russia Collusion” fantasy play.

For its part, the Guardian has not, as of this writing, retracted its blatantly false and libelous report, although it did go back into it add a bunch of weasel-word language after Wikileaks and Manafort issued their forceful denials. In the end, it seems amazing that any editor worth a damn would have agreed to run the story in the first place.

But hey, when you’re competing with CNN and the New York Times in the news-faking business, you’re playing with the big boys and mistakes are going to be made. For the Guardian, this was a doozy.
