Today’s Campaign Update
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)
Presiding over the fakest news operation on earth turns out to be a high-stress gig. – CNN President Jeff Zucker is taking time off to have heart surgery.
If you watch The View, you should really reconsider your bad life choices. – The Democrat campaign to bully, harass and assault Trump supporters in public venues has now been extended into the realm of TV talk shows. Appearing with the cackling shrews on The View on Thursday, Fox News host Judge Jeanine Pirro was harassed and bullied by the execrable Whoopi Goldberg while on air, and then assaulted by Goldberg backstage during a commercial break. You can read all about it here.
Because when you can’t indict anybody real, you indict ham sandwiches. It’s the DOJ way. – Our oily Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, speaking at the Aspen Institute’s annual gathering of globalist freaks Thursday, defended his and Robert Mueller’s practice of indicting Russian nationals as a way to pretend they’re actually making progress on their Democrat/media invented “Russia Collusion” fantasy.
Ignoring the fact that Mueller’s team was completely unprepared to make even a semblance of a case when one of the indicted Russian entities actually showed up voluntarily for trial back in May, Rosenstein pretended this practice is somehow crucial to our rule of law or something: “Exposing schemes to the public is an important way to neutralize them,” he said. “The American people have a right to know if foreign governments are targeting them with propaganda.”
That much is true. But the American people also have a right to know why this special counsel exists in the first place, documents for which Rosenstein has now stonewalled in producing for more than a year now, and whether that special counsel and his band of Clinton/Obama hacks are abusing our legal system, as the judges presiding over the cases of Michael Flynn and the Russian firm Concord Management appear to believe.
But Mueller’s corruption of the process isn’t limited to indicting ham sandwiches – far from it. Now, he’s in the process of attempting to protect several Clinton/Obama cronies from prosecution by asking a judge to grant them “use” immunity in the case against Paul Manafort. Fox News host Tucker Carlson confirmed on his program last night that one of those cronies is …wait for it…Tony Podesta, brother of Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta.
Here we should remember that the Mueller case against Manafort involves alleged crimes that supposedly took place long before Donald Trump announced his candidacy in 2015. Tony Podesta and Manafort worked together for some Ukrainian clients way back in 2012, when some of the alleged crimes supposedly happened.
Thus, Mueller’s thought process here is that if you worked for 60-odd days for Donald Trump in 2016, you get prosecuted, but if you’re a crony of anyone named Clinton or Obama, you get use immunity.
Don’t believe me? Another name rumored to be on Mueller’s immunity list is…wait for it…John Podesta.
If you were still laboring under the illusion that our country doesn’t have a two-tiered justice system, stop it. Now.
This is not working out the way the Democrat/Media Axis of Propaganda wanted. Not at all. – If you’re depressed by the heinously biased coverage of the Trump meeting with Vladimir Putin in Helsinki, don’t be. A series of new polls taken after Monday’s summit that were issued yesterday have some highly-disappointing results for liberals trying to use the meeting as a hammer against the President of the United States:
- The new Economist/YouGov poll has Trump’s approval post-Putin Summit at 44%. The last YouGov poll released last week had him at…wait for it….43%.
- Thursday’s daily Rasmussen Tracking survey had President Trump’s approval rating at 45%, exactly where it was on Sunday, the day before the Helsinki meeting.
- The new Reuters/Ipsos poll has the President’s approval at 42%. Last week’s poll from this group had it at 41%
- A new Gallup poll asked registered voters to pick the “most important problem” facing America today from a list on which “Situation with Russia” was prominently included. The results left Gallup stunned: “The percentage of Americans saying ‘Situation with Russia’ is the most important problem is literally too small to represent with a number.”
- A new Survey Monkey poll has President Trump’s approval rating sitting at 22% among registered Black voters, and 38% among registered Hispanic voters. I don’t believe I’ve ever seen any GOP POTUS with that high a rating among Blacks, and only GW Bush rivaled that rating among Hispanics.
To be clear: If Donald Trump were to win as much as even 15% of the Black vote and 30% of the Hispanic vote in 2020, he’d win 45 states and kill the Democrat Party even deader than it already is for a generation.
So if you’ve been wondering why, starting early on Thursday, Democrats and their coordinating media agents began to slowly walk back all of their “Trump committed TREASON!!!!!” hysteria, this is why. The Democrats never believed it was true, they thought it would poll well, it isn’t polling well, so they’re dropping it.
Expect the Axis of Propaganda to either go back to their “But the Babies!!!!!!” border hysteria, dig up a new porn star to obsess about, or invent something entirely new to keep their irrational, ignorant voter base whipped up with starting today. Because this is all they got, and it’s only going to get worse.
Just another day in Trump Derangement Syndrome America.
That is all.
