Thursday News Roundup: Nikki Haley Rears Her Head as Biden’s Border Crisis Grows Worse

The Babylon Bee never disappoints. – This one is absolutely perfect:

Remember the day when the best parody writers in America worked at Saturday Night Live and SCTV? Now, they all work at the Babylon Bee.

I’m old enough to remember when China Joe Biden put Kamala Harris “in charge” of dealing with the crisis at the border. – That was 15 days ago, and since then the fake Vice President has essentially disappeared from performing any apparent duties at all (not that she was doing much before that time) and people – like GOP establishment darling Nikki Haley – are starting to talk.

From the story at Fox News:

Vice President Kamala Harris continued to draw criticism Wednesday about her absence from the U.S.-Mexico border region — and for not facing reporters about her role as President Biden’s border czar.

Her most recent detractors included former U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley, who called Harris “missing in action” on Wednesday and said, “God help us if she ever becomes president.”

The vice president has so far avoided a border visit — or a news conference about her border-related duties — despite having visited Southern California over Easter weekend. She has now gone 15 days without holding a news conference about the border since taking on her new role.

[End]

Yes, Nikki, God help us indeed if Kamala Harris ever becomes president. Of course, the same could be said about you, but more about that later.

When asked about the fact that Harris is obviously doing nothing related to the border crisis, but had the time to visit Chicago and go shopping at a bakery over the weekend, White House spokesperson Jen Psaki replied that the Veep is “allowed a snack.”

Think about the breathtaking level of utter hubris it takes to say such a thing in the midst of the horrific humanitarian crisis that is happening in real time at the border. It borders on being inhuman. These people are ghouls.

Psaki’s snarky reply came at almost the same moment at which Texas Governor Greg Abbott was ordering Texas Rangers – the real Rangers, not the baseball team – to investigate one of the Biden/Harris Harris/Biden border detention facilities in San Antonio for allegations of child sex abuse:

From a story at Fox News:

Texas Republican Gov. Greg Abbott demanded that the White House close a San Antonio facility housing migrant children Wednesday following allegations that children there were being sexually assaulted.

During a Wednesday evening press conference, Abbott said he received tips that alleged the children at the Freeman Coliseum facility were being sexually abused and were not eating enough.

“These problems are a byproduct of President Biden’s open border policies and the lack of planning for the fallout for those disastrous policies,” Abbott told reporters.

The governor said that separate complaints were sent to the Department of Health and Human Services and the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services Wednesday, alleging four different kinds of child abuse.

The agencies then informed the state leadership.

Abbott said allegations of sexual assault, an insufficient number of staffers, children not eating, and an inability to separate COVID-19 positive children from virus-free children, were the most critical complaints the Texas government has received.

“In short, this facility is a health and safety nightmare. The Biden administration is now presiding over the abuse of children,” Abbott told reporters, calling on the White House to immediately shut down the facility.

[End]

No word if Harris was too busy chowing down on Chicago chocolate eclairs to issue a response, but it seems likely given the evidence at hand.

Again, these people are uncaring, inhuman ghouls who view and value these invaders from Central America only as potential future voters, not as human beings. To people like Harris and Biden and Psaki, these illegal immigrants are no more important than a herd of cattle, there to be controlled and corralled and fed so they can eventually perform a specific service for the Democrat party. Nothing more.

Meanwhile, the DHS Secretary is suddenly talking tough. – In a sure sign that the whole catastrophe on the border is starting to poll really badly for the Biden/Harris Harris/Biden administration, Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas is suddenly starting to talk tough about cracking down on illegal immigration. Check it out:

From the story at the Daily Mail:

Joe Biden’s Homeland Security head is looking to crack down on illegal immigration by taking more legal action against border jumpers and targeting U.S. cities that act as a safe haven for them.

‘I see cases now where we apprehend and remove individuals that I think need to be prosecuted criminally,’ DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas said during a virtual town hall with Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) employees last week where he also revealed President Biden is considering restarting construction on Donald Trump’s border wall.

‘Quite frankly, I’m going to have to understand why some of these individuals are not subject to a Title 8 USC 1326 case and I intend to work with the DOJ in that regard,’ he added.

Entering the U.S. illegally is a misdemeanor under Title 8 Section 1325. Furthermore, reentering the country after being ousted is a felony under Title 8 Section 1326.

Mayorkas told ICE employees that DHS will also take on so-called sanctuary cities that refuse to work with the agency to turn over illegal immigrants hiding out there.

He also vowed during the meeting, according to notes of the conversation reviewed by the Washington Times, that he is opposed to some more progressive immigration and border protection policies, like the push from the far left to totally abolish ICE.

[End]

Now, understand that this is all just being said purely for public consumption. It’s tough talk designed to buy some time while the administration works to figure out a way to better obscure the issue, not anything they really plan to do to try to address it in any constructive way.

The implication that Mayorkas and this administration are contemplating charging a single one of these immigrants with a misdemeanor – much less a felony – is laughable on its face. We have to remember that these people were actively recruited by American activists sent into their countries by front groups for the Democrat party. What we see happening in our own country today is the intended result of that recruitment effort. Are we really to believe that the Biden people will now suddenly turn on a dime and start sending these very same invaders that they recruited back to their home countries?

Please. This is just classic Democrat misdirection, and Mayorkas isn’t even particularly good at it.

But back to Nikki Haley… – So why, you may ask, is Nikki Haley suddenly popping back up on Fox News and pretending to be concerned about the catastrophe at the border? Why, she’s running for the GOP presidential nomination in 2024, that’s why.

Nikki Haley will become 2024’s version of Jeb! Bush, the well-funded front person for the GOP establishment in Washington DC. She already has her very own political action committee established and money is pouring into it from the very same country club Republican set that filled Jeb!’s tank up with $160 million to waste heading into the 2016 primaries.

That worked out so darn well that they’ve decided to run the exact same strategy all over again with Nikki Haley as its poster child. Why, they’ll probably hire a bunch of the same group of circus clowns to run her campaign and waste all her money for her again as she gets her head handed to her by Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, just as Donald Trump handed Jeb!’s head to him.

Oh, this is all going to be so much fun.

That is all.

Wednesday News Roundup: Beto O’Rourke Eyes a Comeback and Anthony Fauci Lacks Self-Awareness

What is this – a scene from the Walking Dead?

That’s your ruling class, folks, holding candles while huddled safe behind their Capitol wall, with thousands of National Guard troops there to protect them.

By the way, more than 100,000 of those 500,000 Americans died in just the first month of the Biden presidency. IN ONE MONTH. But hey, Mitch and his fellow RINOs are out holding candles with their Democrat buddies, so we got that going for us. Holy crap.

Speaking of Mitch McConnell and the RINO herd… – They’re all doing what RINOs always do in a new Democrat administration, and voting to confirm China Joe’s appointees as if they’re qualified or something. Yesterday Mitch announced he was planning to vote to confirm Merrick Garland, an Attorney General nominee who admits that he hasn’t even thought about whether or not illegal crossings of U.S. borders are in fact crimes.

This man has sat on the federal bench for decades now, yet he insults the intelligence of every American by claiming he hasn’t even thought about one of the most pressing issues of our time and Cocaine Mitch and the RINO herd that follows him around the walled-in Capitol Building are just going to snap their fingers and vote to confirm him.

Four years ago, none of President Trump’s nominees received more than a few Democrat votes for confirmation. But Mitch and his RINO herd learned nothing from that experience. As always, there’s a war going on in Washington, DC, and the Democrats are the only ones fighting it.

Godspeed, Tiger Woods. – We all have opinions about Tiger Woods. I was an enormous fan until about 2009, when evidence came to light that he most likely had taken steroids to advance his career. But he has made an admirable comeback in recent years from knee and back issues that culminated in a win at The Masters.

The leg injuries he suffered in yesterday’s car accident will be hard for a 45 year-old man to overcome. A golf swing like Tiger’s places tremendous stress on the back and legs, so his future appears to be murky at best. He will obviously receive the best medical care possible, and all golfing fans can do is hope and pray for the best.

The Most Inevitable Story of the Week, from Politico. – Sigh. This story is so predictable that it’s a wonder it took this long for the Democrat toady media to get it out. Texas Republicans are taking a drubbing in the wake of last week’s winter weather disaster, because hey, they’ve been in charge of all aspects of Texas government for 27 years now. So, who else are Texans going to blame for the massive, epic failure of ERCOT and other Texas officials to ensure the heat and lights stay on when it’s 5 degrees outside?

Thus, the first thought of any leftwing fake reporter at Politico was bound to be “oh joy, does this mean we get our Beto back?”, and right on cue, the story appears:

Here’s an excerpt from the media’s latest Beto booster piece:

While Ted Cruz was getting clobbered for fleeing Texas amid its historic winter storm, the Democrat he defeated in 2018, Beto O’Rourke, was already deep into disaster relief mode — soliciting donations for storm victims, delivering pallets of water from his pickup truck and once again broadcasting his movements on Facebook Live.

It was part of an effort orchestrated by O’Rourke and his organization, Powered by People, in response to the crisis. It was also, to Texas Democrats, a sign that O’Rourke the politician is back.

The former congressman and onetime Democratic sensation acknowledgedlast month that he’s considering running for governor in 2022,and he has discussedthe possibility with Democratic Party officials and other associates. The drubbing that Texas Republicans are taking in the wake of the deadly storm may provide him with an opening — even in his heavily Republican state.

“After all of Texas freezes over because of poor leadership, I think it’s a different state of Texas than it was two weeks ago,” said Mikal Watts, a San Antonio-based lawyer and major Democratic money bundler.

If O’Rourke runs for governor, Watts said, “I think he could catch fire.”

[End]

I laughed out loud at that last line, since that’s exactly what every Democrat in Texas and Washington, DC said about “Abortion Barbie” Wendy Davis when she challenged Greg Abbott in the governor’s race in 2014. She ended up getting slaughtered by 21 percent of the vote.

Is Irish Bob, our favorite fake Hispanic, likely to challenge Abbott next year? Yeah, probably, although it’s a long way between now and November 2022. After all, the pampered child of millionaires who is married to the daughter of a billionaire doesn’t know how to do any honest work, so politics is the only option to get him out of the damn house.

And hey, Irish Bob has already clearly demonstrated that no one in Texas can pull in millions of Hollywood and New York dollars for a political race like he can. The Democrats are always desperate to find someone willing to be their sacrificial lamb for the governor’s race every four years – who can forget Lupe Valdez, Bill White or Chris Bell? – so having their media darling already teed up to go presents the party with a rare bird in the hand.

So jump on in, Irish Bob, the water’s fine.

This week’s Utter Lack of Self-Awareness Award goes to… – The little Menace to Society, Anthony Fauci, who told an interviewer this week that the United States has “done worse than most any other country” in its response to COVID-19:

Here’s an excerpt from that New York Post story:

Dr. Anthony Fauci says the US has “done worse than most any other country” in battling COVID-19.

With the country’s current 500,000-plus deaths nearly double the figure of Brazil, the nation with the next highest number of mortalities, Fauci told ABC-TV’s “Good Morning America” Monday, “It’s so tough to just go back and try and do a metaphorical autopsy on how things went. It was just bad.

“I believe that if you look back historically, we’ve done worse than most any other country — and we’re a highly developed, rich country,” the nation’s top infectious-disease doctor said.

“I think these numbers are just so stunning,” said the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases said, the day the US passed the half-million-deaths mark.

“Remember back in the late winter, early spring, of 2020 when we were saying we could get as high as 240,000 [fatalities], and people were thinking we were being hyperbolic about it — and here we are with a half-million deaths.”

[End]

Ok, so, anybody out there see what the Little Menace seems to be missing here?

Who has without question been the leader of our country’s “strategy” in dealing with the viral gift from China? Who has been out in the media damn near every day urging Democrat governors to lockdown businesses, coop people up in their homes and wear masks despite there being not a shred of science or actual data indicating any of those approaches has the slightest positive impact on the spread of this virus? Who has been contradicting himself, constantly moving the goal posts and confusing the entire country in media appearances day after day after day?

Isn’t the correct answer to all of those questions and so many more “Anthony Fauci”?????

Seriously, how does this Little Menace still have a job? The damage he has done to our society over the last 12 months is simply incalculable. He has arguably done more harm to our society than any figure in history, yet you can be sure that he will be appearing on CNN or MSNBC again today, confusing the situation even more than he already has done.

Relying on this little totalitarian despot is the very worst mistake Donald Trump ever made. We will be paying for that decision for many years to come.

That is all.

Trump Will Emerge From the Impeachment Scam Even Stronger Than Before

If you’re going to shoot at the king, you better make sure you kill him. – The RINO wing of the Republican Party was gleeful just a month ago with the thought that the impeachment scam in which they were coordinating with the Democrats would do away with Donald Trump’s political career once and for all. Mitch McConnell was only too happy to voice his support for this most recent chapter in the DC Swamp’s never-ending coup against the former President, and 11 RINOs in the House volunteered to have their names forever stamped onto the sham as a seal of “bipartisan” approval.

When the question of proceeding with an impeachment trial came before the Senate, the Usual Suspects of the RINO caucus there threw in with their Democrat friends in a 55-45 vote to proceed. When a procedural vote on the question of the constitutionality of using the impeachment process – designed to remove current officeholders from office – against a man no longer in office came before the Senate yesterday, Louisiana Senator Bill Cassidy joined with those Usual Suspects to support the effort.

Hilariously, Cassidy explained his vote to reporters as not being based on any constitutional considerations at all, but based on the fact that he thought the Democrat House impeachment pushers dealt their verbal crank better than the President’s lawyers dealt theirs.

“House managers were focused, they were organized,” and “made a compelling argument,” Cassidy said after the vote. In contrast, he added, “President Trump’s team were disorganized. They did everything they could but to talk about the question at hand and when they talked about it, they kind of glided over, almost as if they were embarrassed of their arguments.”

My goodness, how dimwitted must this man be? Someone should inform the doofus Senator that this is not a criminal trial, nor is it a high school debating class. The question of constitutionality has literally nothing to do with the political rhetoric coming from a bunch of partisan hacks from the opposite chamber of congress. The Chief Justice of the Supreme Court, certainly more of a constitutional scholar than freaking Jamie Raskin, already symbolically told everyone his view of the appropriateness of this sham proceeding by refusing to show up to preside over it.

The beauty part of all of this is that the RINO glee of a month ago is now giving way to a sense of dread that their betrayal of their President, party and voters will ultimately lead to Donald Trump gaining a stronger position within the GOP than he already had before January 6 ever happened.

That is the topic of a piece this at the reliable DC Swamp megaphone, Politico, titled “Trump plans a reemergence and some retribution after impeachment,” and it is glorious.

“The story from Nov. 3 on has been an astonishing display of loyalty to Trump and the strength of supporters in the party,” said anti-Trump conservative Bill Kristol. “If you had said [Trump] would fail to recognize the election returns, keep that up, put pressure on secretaries of state and pressure his own vice president to do something unconstitutional, try to call a mob to Washington on Jan. 6 — it’s pretty astonishing and it’s incredible that people kept with him at each step.”

Kristol, of course, is the titular leader of the anti-Trump RINO conference in the DC Swamp, a washed-up hack who’s had to make a living publishing newsletters and parroting Democrat talking points for CNN since Trump destroyed his former magazine operation, the Weekly Standard. He and others like him – such as the pedophile-supporting clowns at the Lincoln Project – are now in a panic mode as it becomes increasingly obvious that this impeachment scam is doomed to embarrassing failure, like all of the other coup-related scams the Swamp tossed at President Trump during his four years in office.

More from the Politico piece:

Already, Trump aides contend, the impeachment process has proved beneficial to the ex-president — exposing disloyalty within the party’s ranks and igniting grassroots backlash against Republicans who have attempted to nudge the GOP base away from Trump. Nebraska Sen. Ben Sasse spent last week fending off constituent criticisms and censures from state party officials after he compared Trumpism to “a civic cancer for the nation.” And Trump’s allies believe the ex-president’s impending impeachment trial will further illuminate who the turncoats are.

“It’s going to help expose more bad apples that he can primary if any senators vote to convict,” added the former campaign official.

While ensconced at his Mar-a-Lago club in Palm Beach, Trump has remained in touch with political allies and advisers. But he has intentionally kept a low profile, something that will likely continue this week. A former aide suggested Trump try to demonstrate his indifference to it all by spending much of impeachment playing golf, “as a way of sort of saying, ‘Who cares?’”

Aides expect that to change once the trial wraps up though, with Trump gradually reemerging in public and turning his attention toward seeking revenge against Republicans who, he believes, crossed him after he left office.

The format in which he pursues retribution is less clear. The president is still considering what mediums he should use as he remains barred from Twitter and has lost influential media allies like former Fox Business host Lou Dobbs, whose show was abruptly canceled last Friday.

[End]

What the DC Swamp UniParty obviously still hasn’t figured out is that Trump voters are different than the voters who blindly supported previous GOP presidents and presidential candidates. Thanks in large part to the Swamp’s unending efforts to overturn the 2016 election with their never-ending coup, Trump voters have become fully aware of the UniParty’s methods and goals, and will never again be swayed by the Kabuki Theater scams it puts on for public consumption.

That propaganda model is, put simply, broken and irreparable.

Once this latest scam has played itself out, Trump will have a momentous choice to make about where to take his army of 74 million voters. He can either re-assume his place as the de facto leader of the Republican Party, or he can utterly destroy the Republican Party by creating a third part of his own.

That is the real political reality that RINOs are only now waking up to: The future of their nominal party is literally in the hands of the man they so detest and believed they were going to damage with their support of this sham impeachment.

Former Speaker Newt Gingrich captures it perfectly: “I have no idea what they think they’re going to accomplish,” said former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, a key Trump ally. “The next election is in ‘22 and doesn’t involve Trump. What they’re doing is wasting their time.”

What they’re also doing is making Trump even stronger than he was before.

Glorious.

That is all.

Friday News Roundup: AOC’s Riot Fable Continues to Fall Apart

Every day is a new day for China Joe Biden. – President Biden just can’t help himself. Yesterday he repeated a lie that he made up a decade ago about getting “shot at” while on a trip in the Middle East. That lie has been debunked more times than Jussie Smollett’s lies, but the President likely just forgot about that fact. So, he just blurted it out one more time:

This is who we have in the White House: A man who can’t remember things from one day to the next. If you think it looks and sounds as if every day is a new day for Joe Biden, that’s because it is.

The woman is lying. If you see her lips moving, she’s lying. That’s what she does. – In what should come as a surprise to literally no one on the face of the earth who has synapses firing in their cranial cavities, more factual problems have arisen about the fables AOC has been telling about her experience during the Capitol Riot of January 6.

It turns out that she wasn’t even in the Capitol Building at the time of the riot, but that the timeline she has constructed around her fables simply is not possible.

From the story at RedState.com:

But when the knock came on her door, shortly after 1:01, no one had even breached the Capitol building yet. There was some pushing past an outer perimeter barrier at 12:53 still some distance from the Capitol building but the breach of the building didn’t come until about an hour after the officer knocked on AOC’s door. What she’s saying now is with the hindsight of what later occurred, but there was no way of knowing that people were breaching a building at that point because it hadn’t yet happened.

“As the Capitol complex was stormed and people were being killed, none of us knew in the moment what areas were compromised.” But that “moment” hadn’t actually happened yet at 1:01 p.m. No one knew any of that. The building hadn’t been “compromised” or “stormed” as of yet.

So suggesting that it had, to provide buttress for her reaction, is again manipulative.

There’s also been no public evidence that people were ever trying to storm the Cannon building, much less at 1:01 p.m. We’ve asked the Capitol Police for their records to confirm that but haven’t gotten a response yet.

[End]

RedState should not expect to get an answer from the Capitol Police for the simple fact that AOC is lying, and the Capitol Police won’t want to cause her any more humiliation than she has already brought onto herself.

She’s a liar – it’s what she does. Lying to gullible and easily-manipulated Democrat voters is how she got elected, and it is how she plans to continue to rise through the power structure in Washington, DC. As I have said many times before, if you believe in reincarnation, then when you look into AOC’s dead, beady eyes you should see the reincarnation of Adolph Hitler. At this point in her life, she is Hitler circa 1933 or so, and she intends to keep rising until she becomes Hitler circa 1939.

So of course she is lying about the riot, because the riot, in her mind, simply represents opportunity to manipulate the public. After all, that’s how Adolph would have looked at it, too.

Speaking of opportunities… – If congressional Republicans had spines, they would be looking at yesterday’s action by congressional Democrats to strip Marjorie Taylor Green of her committee assignments as a golden opportunity. In an action without precedent in modern times, the Democrats – with 11 RINOs supporting them – voted to remove a duly-elected representative from Georgia from all House committees.

From the story at the Daily Caller:

The House of Representatives voted Thursday to strip Republican Georgia Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene of her committee assignments.

In a 230-199 vote, the House voted to remove Greene from the House Education and Budget committees.

Greene has continued to claim that Trump won the Nov. 3 presidential election and has been linked to a number of conspiracy theories, including QAnon related conspiracies. Greene gave a speech on the House floor Thursday after a Wednesday night meeting with House Republicans where she apologized for promoting conspiracy theories and reportedly was met with applause by many in the room.

House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy said Wednesday that he would not remove Greene from her committee assignments.

“Past comments from and endorsed by Marjorie Taylor Greene on school shootings, political violence, and anti-Semitic conspiracy theories do not represent the values or beliefs of the House Republican Conference. I condemn those comments unequivocally. I condemned them in the past. I continue to condemn them today. This House condemned QAnon last Congress and continues to do so today,” McCarthy said in a statement released Wednesday afternoon.

[End]

Coming as it does a mere month after it was revealed that Democrat Eric Swalwell had an affair with a honeypot spy from China for a couple of years and the decision by Nancy Pelosi to leave Swalwell as a member of the House Homeland Security Committee, the decision to remove Greene from committees is a truly breathtaking act of hyper-partisanship. Yes, Greene’s a conspiracy theorist who has in the past indicated she doesn’t believe the government’s story on 9/11 and all manner of other things, but the truth is her behavior has been no more repugnant than that of AOC or Rashida Tlaib or Ilhan Omar or Swalwell.

So, if congressional Republicans possessed a spine, they would be looking at yesterday’s vote from a long-term perspective, and making plans to take exactly the same action against AOC, Tlaib, Omar and Swalwell when they take back the majority in the House in the 2022 mid-term elections. That is, after all, the next logical step to be taken here.

But you can bet your bottom dollar that neither Majority Leader McCarthy nor any other GOP house member is entertaining any such thoughts, because to do so would require the possession of intestinal fortitude. It would also require them to finally, at long last, recognize that they are engaged in a very real war on Capitol Hill, and have been for the last 170 years, and the Democrats are the only side truly engaged in the fight.

Thus, when congress convenes in 2023 with a small GOP majority in the House, you won’t see McCarthy allowing any move to remove any Democrat from any committee assignments, under the rationale that if he and his Republican members just play nice with the Democrats, they will play nice, too. It’s a rationale that has consistently proved to be an exercise in rank futility since about 1850, but the Republicans never seem to learn.

That is all.

Rand Paul: GOP Leadership is About to “Destroy the Republican Party”

Proof that Rand Paul reads DBDailyUpdate? – Probably not, but the Kentucky Senator does seem to agree with the piece I wrote yesterday that contends that the collapse we are seeing at Fox News right now is a canary in the coal mine for the Republican Party.

From the story at DailyWire:

Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) soberly predicted Friday that the Republican Party will be destroyed and hemorrhage a third of its members if party leadership votes to convict President Donald Trump during a second impeachment trial.

During an interview with Fox News host Laura Ingraham, Paul described the second impeachment push against Trump as “crazy,” and further evidence of how the president’s opponents are “bitter.”

“I just don’t understand how they can be moving forward with this,” Paul said. “And look, I’m not just saying I’m for everything President Trump has done. I was for seating the electors because I think Congress shouldn’t overturn the state electors. But at the same time, the thing they are doing is an overreaction, and if they think they’re going to have a positive feeling from the public when they’re going to go through a partisan impeachment again, I think that’s absolutely insane and wrongheaded.”

[End]

Well, it certainly is insane and wrongheaded, no question about that. But the DC Swamp UniParty is back in charge now that Trump is about to be gone, and feels the need to flex its muscle. What better way to do that and teach Trump and his voters a lesson in fear than by continuing to persecute the man after he has left the office?

And if it destroys the GOP for a generation or more, so be it. After all, people like Mitch McConnell, Lisa Murkowski, Mitt Romney and Susan Collins are far more comfortable being in the minority, anyway. Being in the majority means you have real responsibilities and power to get things done. The pressure coming from constituents becomes almost unbearable as they expect you to actually work for a living on their behalf.

But being in the minority means never having to say you’re sorry. You get to sit on the back bench spouting platitude you don’t really mean, toss ineffective fits during hearings and introduce bills your voters love that you hate, but know have no chance of going anywhere, then go back and run for re-election on the claim that there was nothing you could do since you’re in the minority.

For the RINO caucus in the House and Senate, it’s literally the perfect world, a world that allows them to focus most of their time on fundraising and ensuring they get included in the Swamp’s myriad influence peddling scams.

For McConnell and his fellow RINOs, pushing for an impeachment trial presents an opportunity for them to re-establish their UniParty bona fides after four long years of being forced by a POTUS of their own party to actually get stuff done on behalf of the American people. What better way to do that than to go along with the false narrative about the Capitol riot and continue hounding him and his family even after he’s left office?

Rand Paul’s right, but this is a battle he won’t win.

That is all.

Saturday News Roundup: The Senate UniParty Overrides Trump Veto as Democrat-run Cities Fall Apart

The Democans and Republicrats who make up the UniParty in the U.S. Senate were back in action on New Year’s Day. – They voted 81-13 to override President Trump’s veto of the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA). The President had chosen to veto the bill because it did not contain language that would repeal Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act, the clause that protects the Big Tech companies from being subjected to anti-trust enforcement over their anti-American censorship actions.

The 13 members who voted to sustain the veto included: Ted Cruz (R-Texas), Rand Paul (R-Ky.), Josh Hawley (R-Mo.), Mike Braun (R-Ind.), Tom Cotton (R-Ark.), Mike Lee (R-Utah), John Kennedy (R-La.), Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.), Cory Booker (D-N.J.), Ed Markey (D-Mass.), Jeff Merkley (D-Ore.), and Ron Wyden (D-Ore.). Every other Republicrat and Democan present voted to override and thus allow Big Tech to continue business as usual.

Within an hour of the vast majority of its membership voting to take this action and do nothing to police Big Tech, the National Republican Senatorial Committee (NSRC), which helps to fund GOP senate campaigns, issued this clueless and unintentionally hilarious tweet:

Oh, gee. Too bad, so sad, dudes. You would think at some point these clueless jackasses would figure out why it is that so many millions of conservatives detest them and their RINO members every bit as much as we detest their Democrat colleagues. But some people are very, very slow learners.

So, the defense contractors will continue receiving their lard, as will the foreign governments who will receive hundreds of millions in benefits from this bill, and the members of the Senate Armed Services and Senate Foreign Relations committees will continue to receive their largess from those countries and from the lobbyists who represent those defense contractors.

Because that is how the Swamp works.

Hey, it only took 150 or so days of riots for Commie Ted to figure it all out. – Communist Democrat Mayor of Portland Ted Wheeler woke up on New Year’s morning to the sudden realization that the Antifa anarchists who have been teaming with BLM anarchists to destroy his city for the last six months are – gasp! – not his friends. Many, who could have seen that one coming?

I swear I’m not making this up:

The Oregonian quotes Wheeler as stating that “We need more accountability and we need to hold people responsible for their criminal conduct.” Oh, you don’t say, Ted.

The Oregonian further reports:

Wheeler said he will organize a meeting with local and state law enforcement as soon as next week to determine how best to respond to “anarchist violence” in the city, and he called for the state Legislature to pass a law in its upcoming regular session to increase penalties for people who repeatedly vandalize property.

The mayor also said Portland might need legislators to change state laws to allow increased city surveillance, although he provided no specifics when pressed for details.

[End]

Hey, here’s a thought: Maybe the Oregon legislature should pass a law to exact penalties on communist Democrat mayors who intentionally tie the hands of their law enforcement officials and refuse to allow them to use all the tools already at their disposal to put these rioters down before they grow out of control. Let’s never forget that, in addition to being Portland’s Mayor, Wheeler is also the City’s police commissioner.

Portland and other big, Democrat-controlled cities definitely do need “more accountability” and they definitely do need to “hold people responsible for their criminal conduct.” But that accountability needs to start at the top of the pyramid or none of it will have impact or meaning. In Portland, Ted Wheeler sits firmly at the top of that criminal pyramid.

Meanwhile, in New York City… – Speaking of communist Democrat mayors who sit atop their city’s criminal pyramid, The New York Daily News has noticed the results of this year’s defunding the police policy actions by The Big Doofus, Mayor Bill de Blasio.

Here’s an excerpt from that article:

On top of a pandemic that took more than 25,000 lives, New York City endured a soul-crushing crime surge in 2020 — a 97% jump in shootings and a 45% surge in murders.

The NYPD released the sobering preliminary year-end stats Friday, eager to turn the page on a tally that recorded more shootings from mid-May through mid-September than in all of 2019.

When the ball fell in near-empty Times Square, the NYPD counted 462 murders across the city in 2020 — 143 more than in 2019.

Shootings were also up — cops counted 1,531 shooting incidents across the five boroughs, 754 more than in 2019, officials said. In those incidents, bullets hit 1,868 people. The city hasn’t been such alarming violence since 2006, when 1,565 shootings were reported, according to Police Commissioner Dermot Shea.

[End]

Note that the actions by the Mayor and Democrat-controlled city council to defund the NYPD by more than $150 million had exactly the same motivation as Ted Wheeler’s mindless malfeasance in Portland: To appease the radical anarchists and Marxists who make up the Antifa/BLM domestic terrorist complex.

Millions of Americans abandoned Democrat-controlled cities like Portland and New York and Seattle and Minneapolis and Philadelphia and Newark during 2020, most of them moving to Red states like Texas and Florida. The corrupt news media – like NBC in the report linked here – want you to think it’s all about COVID restrictions and nothing more.

But the truth is it’s also about confiscatory tax policies in blue states and about security. The truth is that these communist Democrat mayors all over the country have jointly decided to abandon their duties to properly protect the public at the behest of the Antifa/BLM complex, which are, after all, the militarized wing of the Democrat Party.

That’s reality, and if you live in a Democrat-controlled city, the negative consequences of that reality are going to come home to roost on your doorstep sooner or later if you remain there.

The best advice for you to take is to get the hell out of those cities as soon as you possibly can, because none of this is going to get any better.

That is all.

Brian Kemp Punts Again on Georgia Election Fraud Reality

The ball is completely in your court, Governor. – Yesterday’s legislative hearing in Georgia apparently had an impact, at least on RINO Governor Brian Kemp, it seems. In a Fox News interview last night, Kemp called for what should have happened two weeks ago, a full signature audit of mail-in and absentee ballots in the state.

From a story at DailyWire:

Georgia Republican Governor Brian Kemp called for a signature audit of the state’s election results on Thursday night during an interview on Fox News, saying that some of what allegedly came out today during a Georgia Senate Government Oversight Committee hearing was “concerning.”

“You know, I’ve called early on for a signature audit, obviously the secretary of state, per the laws and the Constitution would have to order that; he has not done that,” Kemp said. “I think it should be done. I think, especially with what we saw today, it raises more questions. There needs to be transparency on that. I would again call for that, and I think in the next 24 hours hopefully we’ll see a lot more from the hearings that the legislature had today and we’ll be able to look and see what the next steps are.”

[End]

Oh. So Kemp claims to be on board with a full signature audit, but still refuses to exercise his emergency powers to overrule obviously corrupt Secretary of State Brian Raffensperger, who has steadfastly refused to do the right thing for a full month now.

In case you missed it, the Georgia hearing included, among many other things, this stunning video in which a Fulton County Democrat election official clears all GOP observers from the counting room and then, along with 3 other Democrats who stay behind, pulls out rollerboard suitases filled with thousands of “ballots” and starts shoving them into the Dominion counting machines:

Kemp also joined a chorus of other Republicans – including Texas Senator Ted Cruz and former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich – in condeming attorney L. Lin Wood for his remarks at a Wednesday pep rally (I can find other word to accurately describe the event) in which he told the audience to not vote for the Republican candidates in January’s runoff elections:

Kemp slammed attorney Lin Wood, an alleged Trump supporter who has an extensive history supporting Democrats, for encouraging people to not vote in the upcoming Senate runoff elections.

“It’s like Lin Wood saying today, urging the people not to go vote in this election — all that is gonna do is give the Democrats everything they want,” Kemp said. “It’s gonna give the radicals everything they want. This is literally the firewall. So, I think we all have to pull together and figure out what have we got to do to assure people that their vote’s gonna count. I believe that it will; that’s why I’m working so hard for David and Kelly, and I’m going to continue to do that.”

[End]

Given that those elections will determine majority control of the U.S. Senate for the next two years, I have to admit that Kemp is actually right for once.

To be fair to Wood, he sort of qualified his exhortations to sit out the election by stating that voters should do so if Kemp and Raffensperger don’t get rid of the Dominion Systems machines and software and clean the vote counting processes in the state up prior to the elections. Given everything we’ve learned about Dominion and its cohort, Smartmatic, over the past two weeks, Wood unarguably makes a strong point. If alternative technology can’t be acquired by then, Kemp should act to delay the runoff until the situation can be resolved.

As President Trump has correctly pointed out multiple times now, Kemp himself does have the power to declare an emergency and overrule Raffensperger’s ongoing efforts to obstruct a proper audit. He has had no problem at all exercising those powers in response to the China Virus for the past eight months, but remains reluctant to take that step in a situation in which his state has clearly experienced outright theft of the presidential election in his state.

Time to act, Governor. Stop deflecting and obfuscating and act, or go down in history as just another RINO who did nothing as our Republic slipped away.

That is all.

Tuesday News Roundup: Arizona Shenanigans Show Why Trump is Fighting a Longshot Battle

Dear Joe DiGenova: You are not being helpful. – Why the President would entertain having Joe DiGenova as a part of his legal team in the election fraud fight is anyone’s guess. But it turned into a big fiasco during yesterday’s informal fact-finding hearing in Arizona. Jonathan Turley summed up my feelings on the matter pretty succinctly:

Not helpful, Joe. Not helpful at all. Go away.

As for the rest of that hearing, legislators in attendance heard tons of testimony from witnesses to the rampant election fraud efforts that went down in their state – especially in Maricopa County – on Election Day.  A parade of witnesses testified to abuse of the process by Democrat election officials and regarding the insecurities of the Dominion Systems machines and software in use in Arizona.

Unfortunately for the Trump effort, the only part of the hearing that got any traction with the corrupt news media was DiGenova’s idiotic outburst, so the hearing did little to advance the Trump cause. It’s important to note here that, like the hearing held last Friday in Pennsylvania, this was not a formal hearing called by the Speaker of the House or Senate President in Arizona, which would have been extraordinary given that the legislature there is not currently in session.

As a result, despite the promises given by the Republican members in attendance to seek a special session to reconsider the state’s process for choosing its electors, there is very little likelihood for that actually taking place, just as there is virtually zero chance that GOP legislators in Pennsylvania or any of the other states in question will summon the political will to act.

I have warned you all along that the courts are literally the President’s only chance at reversing these election results, and his court cases are long shots as well. That is not because his cause isn’t just – it clearly is – but because getting any legislature or court to act to do the right thing here requires an extraordinary act of political or judicial courage on their part.

The vast majority of GOP politicians and judges are cowards at heart. They talk a good game but seldom possess the courage to follow through in their official actions. There are 10 dozen Lamar Alexanders and Lisa Murkowskis in the GOP for every Ted Cruz or Rand Paul.

Any legislator or judge who acts to overturn these reported election results is going to come under withering assault from potentially violent leftist activists and the entirety of our corrupt media establishment. It is a rare politician or judge indeed who will be willing to invite such an assault on themselves and their family members by acting to do the right thing.

Instead, we are almost certain to see the public posturing by legislators we have seen thus far in PA, AZ and Michigan, but that will be followed by a decided lack of real action. Where the judiciary is concerned, the U.S. Supreme Court is really the only hope for the President and his supporters. We can be certain that John Roberts will timidly side with the three communist justices on the court, meaning that every one of the five conservative members would have to hold together in the face of the media/Democrat assault.

A new poll this week shows that 47% of Americans now believe – correctly – that this was a stolen election. But there remains very little good reason to be optimistic that any of the fraud will be reversed. That’s just  me dealing with reality, folks. You should all deal with it, too.

Here’s a great example of that sad reality. – Arizona Governor Mike Ducey, a nominal Republican, eagerly certified the state’s election results as the informal hearing was taking place, and promised to quickly swear-in Democrat Mark Kelley to take over the senate seat currently held by Republican Martha McSally, who Kelly supposedly defeated in the election. Because that’s the kind of thing fake Republicans like Ducey do.

Here’s an excerpt from a report at Mediaite, noting that Ducey apparently ignored a last minute call from the President himself while in the process of pandering to his Democrat masters:

Arizona Governor Doug Ducey received a phone call in the middle of a live broadcast of an election certifying ceremony that confirmed his state’s electors would vote for President-elect Joe Biden. Ducey blew off the phone call, which, judging by the ringtone and Gov. Ducey’s previous account, was a phone call directly from President Donald Trump.

That’s right. Trump appeared to make a last-ditch phone call to Gov. Ducey to keep him from certifying the election results, and the governor ignored the call. The most embarrassing part? It was captured on camera.

The moment was first noted by Arizona local news host Brahm Resnik, which the producers at Morning Joe cleverly cut with footage with Ducey’s prior admission that he had customized the ringtone on his phone to play Hail to the Chief every time President Trump rang him directly. As you can see and hear in the footage above, the incoming call’s ringtone is definitely Hail to the Chief. 

[End]

Note to Arizona voters: When presented by your state GOP with limp-wristed RINO candidates like Doug Ducey, just vote for the Democrat instead. You will be less disgusted with the results of your actions.

Over in Georgia, the Secretary of State who keeps bragging about how “secure” his election was, Brad Raffensperger, admitted on Monday that his office is investigating no less than “250 cases of credible claims” of election fraud.

From a report at DailyWire:

“As we move forward in the process, we will, as we always have been, we will continue to investigate credible claims of illegal voting and violation of state election law,” Raffensperger said. “There are currently over 250 open cases from 2020 and we have 23 investigators to follow up on that. Some of these include, a charge Gwinnett County that absentee ballots outnumber absentee envelopes. This is the kind of specific charge that our office can investigate and ascertain the truth.”

“We have multiple investigations underway surrounding absentee ballots in Fulton, Gwinnett, Cobb, and many others. We continue our investigations into potential dead, double voters, and non-resident voters,” he continued. “As we move to the December 1st election, which is tomorrow, and the January 5th federal runoffs, we have to remain vigilant.”

“That is why I’m announcing an investigation into third party groups working to register people in other states to vote here in Georgia,” he added. “We have opened an investigation into a group called America Votes who is sending absentee ballot applications to people at addresses where they have not lived since 1994; Vote Forward, who attempted to register a dead Alabama voter, a woman, to vote here in Georgia; The New Georgia Project, who sent voter registration applications to New York City, at Operation New Voter Registration Georgia, who is telling college students in Georgia that they can change their residency to Georgia and then change it back after the election.”

Raffensperger concluded the press conference by repeatedly reminding people that committing election fraud in Georgia, which includes voting in the state when a person is not a resident of the state, is a felony.

[End]

Oh. So, maybe the election wasn’t all that “secure” after all, huh?

Be careful about this one, though: Anyone expecting Raffensperger and his investigators to really conduct good-faith investigations of all of these myriad claims of fraud should remember that this is the man who has steadfastly refused to conduct anything resembling a real audit of absentee and mail-in ballots in his state.

This guy is part of the problem, not a part of any solution.

Good to see CNN latching onto reality here. – While all of that was going on, the despicable news-fakers at CNN suddenly discovered what the rest of us have understood since February: That China has not exactly been up-front with the rest of the world where COVID-19 is concerned.

Welcome to the party, pals!

It really is the alien’s, y’all. – Remember that metal monolith that mysteriously just appeared in the remote wilderness of Utah last week? Yeah, the Bureau of Land Management officials who discovered it found out on Sunday that it has just as mysteriously disappeared:

As if that weren’t odd enough, the dang thing seems to have just as mysteriously reappeared atop a hill in Romania:

I’m not saying it’s aliens, but…

Those 71 Million Americans are Trump Voters, Not Republican Voters

Leaders of the Republican Party establishment had better fall in line and support President Trump’s challenges of these election results. If they don’t, their party will face an almost certain doom.

At last count, fully 71 million Americans cast their votes in this election for President Donald J. Trump, far and away the most votes ever cast for any Republican. Let’s make no mistake about this: Those votes are real votes, not stolen or fabricated ones; And those votes were cast for Donald Trump, not the Republican Party.

The Trump Movement is exactly that: A movement motivated by and loyal to Donald Trump. Any Republican who assumes that these 71 million Americans are going to just blindly follow behind any old Republican is living in an alternative universe.

The truth of the matter is that at least half of those 71 million Americans have complete and utter disdain for the GOP and for most Republican politicians. These Americans would follow Donald Trump to the gates of hell to save this country, but would gladly discard most Republican politicians to the local junk heap if they had their way.

Prominent Republicans like Mitch McConnell and Lindsey Graham and Susan Collins and Lisa Murkowski and Mitt Romney had better wake up and realize that the one and only reason why most GOP voters chose to vote for them is just that the alternative – a communist Democrat – was so much worse. That’s the only reason they elected George W. Bush twice, and the only reason they held their collective noses and cast votes for the weasel Romney and the even more execrable John McCain.

Every GOP leader had better understand the fact that Donald Trump could destroy their political party forever with the snap of his finger if he chose to do that. If they fail to support the President’s challenges to this blatantly stolen election in the coming weeks – and do so prominently and publicly with every tool and rhetorical flourish at their disposal – the real President could kill the GOP dead by announcing he is going to create his own political party and run again for the presidency in 2024.

If Trump did that, at least 50 million of those 71 million real Americans would follow him into that third party, even with the knowledge that doing so would virtually ensure a second term for Kamala Harris. Make no mistake about this: The vast majority of these 71 million real Americans hold establishment Republicans – RINOs – in every bit as much contempt as they do any Democrat.

The vast political movement we see happening on the right/middle today is a Trump movement. Period. If the GOP leaders wish to retain these tens of millions of real, non-stolen votes in their base of support, they had better get with the program now and demonstrate that they care about the sanctity of the U.S. elections system as the President does.

This is a Trump movement, not a Republican movement. This is a Trump army of 71 million angry Americans, not a bunch of 1970s-era country club Republicans. For the GOP, failure to understand this and get with the program is not an option.

That is all.

No, Sen. Graham, There Can Be No Compromise With An Illegitimate Presidency

They’re coming for you, folks. Don’t kid yourselves otherwise. – All talk by the Democrats of unifying the country that we saw during the campaign has now gone up in smoke, replaced very quickly by talk of taking lists of Trump supporters in order to punish them for their sins over the last four years. And – no surprise at all here – they are being ably assisted by the creeps in the #NeverTrump RINO crowd.

Keeping this kind of list of political enemies and using it to punish them is of course a favored tactic of all despots down through history, including Lenin, Stalin, Hitler, Mao, Pol Pot, Castro and Hugo Chavez. It is just another part of the Marxist/Nazi playbook that the Democrat Party is now adopting as its own.

And – no surprise here at all – the leader of the movement is of course Alexandria Ocasio Cortez:

Here’s supreme #NeverTrump nitwit Jennifer Rubin, one of the WaPo’s pet fake conservative writers, helping to lead the charge:

And here is the pathetic RINO Evan what’s-his-name desperately attempting to make himself relevant somehow, some way to someone:

“We should keep and publish a list” said every Marxist/Leninist/Nazi despot in world history.

That is your Democrat Party today. Do not doubt me on this, as Rush Limbaugh would say.

Also no surprise at all is that the Cheese-eating Surrender Monkey caucus in the U.S. Senate is already making noises about surrendering to a Biden/Harris stolen presidency. – Because of course they are, and guess who the leader of this move is?

That’s right: Lindsey Graham. Take a look:

No, Biden doesn’t “deserve” a cabinet. He doesn’t deserve a damn thing. He obviously, blatantly stole this election, and Republicans should not spend a moment of their time on a single day in the next four years treating him and his designated successor as if he/she is a legitimate president. He is a usurper, an enemy of the people and the state, and should be treated thusly. And when he steps down at some point a few months into his term and is replaced by Kamala Harris, she should be treated the very same way.

That is how the Democrats treated Donald Trump for four long years, and that and nothing more is what Biden/Harris deserve from the GOP. Rather than surrender and deliver them a cabinet of their choosing, the GOP Senate majority should vote down every damn nominee whose political views lie to the left of Winston Churchill, for the good of the country. The senate majority should vote down every policy proposal that comes their way, reject every nominee to the courts, reject every treaty sent for them to ratify.

The senate majority should, for the good and survival of this nation, forget about legislating and spend every moment of every waking day holding hearings investigating every move made by Biden/Harris, just as the Democrat House majority has spent its time over the past two years. No Republican worth having that designation next to his or her name should concede a shred of legitimacy to the atrocity the Democrat Party is seeking to perpetrate on our country.

The evidence is clear and overwhelming at this point that the Democrat Party has systematically stolen this election through massive fraud involving millions of mail-in ballots. The proof of outright fraud is everywhere, and no Republican should ever for a moment treat a Biden/Harris regime as being legitimate in any way, shape or form.

To his credit, Graham did say later that he is not conceding that Biden has “won” the election. But the very fact that he is even thinking about “reaching across the aisle” to compromise with a political party that is attempting to execute yet another coup d’etat on American soil is unacceptable, and those of us who love this country must make that crystal clear.

No compromise is acceptable, because compromise with usurpers is nothing but surrender.

If we are now in the list-keeping phase of American politics, let’s all keep lists of every Republican we see spending a second of time “reaching across the aisle” and compromising with an illegitimate junta, and vote them all out of office in 2022.

That is all.

Monday News Roundup: Hollywood Tough Guy Mob, RINO Stampede and a Municipal Suicide in Minn.

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

“This the workplace, not a social justice seminar on campus.” – That’s what Arkansas Senator Tom Cotton said to Maria Bartiromo on Sunday Morning Futures yesterday. He was telling her what he would say to the pathetic, childish, snowflake staff at the New York Times after they had staged a hissy-fit rebellion against the fake newspaper’s editorial page editor for publishing Cotton’s op/ed piece last Monday.

The problem with Sen. Cotton’s argument there is that today’s staff at the Times is in fact a social justice seminar. It’s just that the university campuses on which they all were brainwashed to become SJW’s have been transferred into the NYTimes Building in Manhattan. The same transition has taken place at newspapers and other media outlets all over the country, the natural progression of college learnings coming into the workplace. Why would Mr. Cotton or anyone else expect any other outcome?

The nation’s news media used to merely be biased, with its editors and reporters slanting their reporting to fit their own world view while giving a basic level of lip service to impartiality and balance. Today’s media outlets are different: They are not merely biased in what they do, they are rigidly intolerant of any viewpoint but their own.

And so it was that later in the day on Sunday, the Times announced that it had allowed editorial page editor James Bennet to “resign,” corporate speak for they fired his ass. They fired him for no valid reason and simply because their childish, brainwashed staff demanded it.

Today’s national news media is not merely biased and corrupt and 98% fake, it is actively fascist in it nature, led by the newspaper of record itself. If you trust a word they have to say without independent verification, you are part of the problem.

*sigh* Ok, so, we’re back to de-funding the police again? – We told you on Friday how the Democrats in Minneapolis – including pitiful Mayor Jacob Frey – had suddenly backed off the whole “de-fund the police” thing after Morning Consult released a poll showing just 16% support for that idiotic, society-destroying move.

But the radical leftist goons who populate the Minneapolis city council just will not be diverted from their desire to make their city ultimately look like Warsaw after Hitler’s invasion of Poland. They want the whole thing to just burn to the ground, and the first step to creating utter chaos in the streets is removing all notion of public safety.

Thus it was that yesterday afternoon, a “veto-proof majority” on the Minneapolis city council sent out this notice:

Image

If you are a law-abiding citizen in Minneapolis and you have the means to do so, you should be packing up your things and getting the hell out of there before it is too late. This is municipal suicide, plain and simple, all brought to you by your stupid, mindless votes for Democrats.

Here is the carnival freak show that is in the process of destroying a great American city:

Remember their faces and names.

Run to the hills! Run to the woods! The Hollywood tough guy mob is coming for you! – I swear to you that I am not making this up. This is a real, actual tweet put up by drug-addled failed actor and even more failed comedian Tom Arnold on Sunday [Language warning]:

Yes, friends and neighbors and all you other Trump supporters out here in Flyover Country where Hollywood leftists fear to tread: Tom Arnold, a 61 year-old grown man, is gonna go borrow his daddy’s rifle and come after you. And even more fearful, he’s inviting 73 year-old Rob Reiner to go borrow a rifle from his 98 year-old daddy Carl Reiner so he can join in the assault on the nation’s heartland.

Seriously, how pathetic is it to a) be 61 years-old and publicly admit that, in order to arm yourself, you have to go borrow a gun from your nonagenarian daddy, and b) to be so pathetically lacking in self-awareness that you don’t realize how silly making that public admission makes you look to the rest of the world?

You could never make these people up if they didn’t already exist. And if you still doubt me when I tell you that leftists hate you and want you dead, I really don’t know what else to tell you after this.

Speaking of ineffectual gangs, the RINOs are coming! The RINOs are coming! – The corrupt, fascist news media made a very big deal yesterday about the talk that Donald Trump will not be getting the votes in November of … wait for it … ex-President George W. Bush, Senator Mitt Romney and Colin Powell! Oh, noes! What will Trump do????

This non-story dominated the “news” all day long, despite the following facts:

  • None of these globalists supported Trump in 2016, either;
  • Romney voted to impeach the President, and we’re supposed to be surprised by this?; and
  • Colin Powell is a life-long Democrat who has never supported any Republican whose name was not Bush.

But here’s the thing: This is just the next step in the deep state propaganda campaign to throw everything against the wall at Trump and hope something sticks. This year alone, the impeachment failed to do the trick; the Wuhan Virus and its Democrat-driven shutdowns failed to do the trick; and this massive propaganda effort over the George Floyd murder is not doing the trick either.

So, yesterday’s obviously coordinated revelations among those three globalists was just the next page in the playbook. There will be something else today, and each and every day through November 3. And when Trump is re-elected, it will only become even more intense than it has been thus far.

This will never end as long as any non-deep state captive resides at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.

And this is the Deep State’s goal:

They want you afraid. They want you unsettled. They want you to be constantly on edge. Because a fearful and cowed public is much easier to control and far more likely to be willing to surrender its rights and freedoms in exchange for a fool’s notion of “security.” The result of that poll is obviously due to all the rioting, and once the rioting goes away, the number will go away with it.

But be fully aware that these riots are not the end game for the Democrat/Deep State/Corrupt media Axis of Disinformation. Something else will be coming soon, and it will probably be even worse.

Protect yourself.

Protect your family.

Stay alert to your surroundings.

Because the next thing will inevitably come.

These people will never stop until they are stopped.

Good News: Boris out of ICU; Japan De-Coupling From China

The Evening Campaign Update

Great news for a great nationalist leader. – After what was for a while a nip-and-tuck battle with the Wuhan Virus, an improving British PM Boris Johnson was released from the ICU earlier today:

In a statement, a spokesman at 10, Downing Street said Johnson “has been moved this evening from intensive care back to the ward, where he will receive close monitoring during the early phase of his recovery.”

Johnson had been in intensive care for three days after his symptoms for coronavirus worsened. He tested positive for the virus two weeks ago and at first had only “mild” symptoms.

Britons braced Thursday for several more weeks in lockdown as Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s condition improved in a London hospital after three nights in intensive care for treatment of his coronavirus infection.

Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab said Johnson was “making positive steps forward” in the ICU at St. Thomas’ Hospital and was in good spirits.

[End]

Bully for Boris, a father of four children with another baby on the way.

Here is what a congress with no Democrats or Chamber-of-Commerce RINOs in charge would be doing right now. – Japan’s parliament included billions of yen in its Wuhan Virus stimulus package that will go towards helping that country’s manufacturing firms to repatriate their factories and operations out of China. From a report at the Daily Wire:

Japan has earmarked hundreds of billions of yen of its coronavirus stimulus relief to go toward helping its manufacturing companies move their production plants out of communist China and back to Japan or to other countries.

“The extra budget, compiled to try to offset the devastating effects of the pandemic, includes 220 billion yen (US$2 billion) for companies shifting production back to Japan and 23.5 billion yen for those seeking to move production to other countries, according to details of the plan posted online,” Bloomberg News reported. “That has renewed talk of Japanese firms reducing their reliance on China as a manufacturing base. The government’s panel on future investment last month discussed the need for manufacturing of high-added value products to be shifted back to Japan, and for production of other goods to be diversified across Southeast Asia.”

The move comes after communist China lied to the world about the extent of the coronavirus outbreak in their country and tried to cover it up, which led to the outbreak spreading like wildfire throughout China and eventually the rest of the world.

“China is Japan’s biggest trading partner under normal circumstances, but imports from China slumped by almost half in February as the disease closed factories, in turn starving Japanese manufacturers of necessary components,” Bloomberg News added. “Japan exports a far larger share of parts and partially finished goods to China than other major industrial nations, according to data compiled for the panel. A February survey by Tokyo Shoko Research found 37 per cent of the more than 2,600 companies that responded were diversifying procurement to places other than China amid the coronavirus crisis.”

[End]

Once all the dust has settled from this COVID-19-caused economic destruction and human misery, the nations of the world, especially the United States, must move to decouple their economies and national security from the inherently dishonest communist Chinese government.  President Trump has made his stance on this matter crystal clear, advocating for decoupling for many years before he ever ran for the presidency.

Any member of congress, regardless of party affiliation, who stands as a roadblock to measure designed to ensure our nation becomes independent of the pernicious influence of the government whose dishonesty caused this current crisis should not only be defeated at the ballot box, but shunned from decent society. This represents an existential moment for the future our country: We can either be a free and prosperous nation, independent of Chinese influence, or we can continue down to the road to becoming a vassal state subject to ChiCom masters.

This is a true moment for choosing, and ordinary American should keep close score on the positions taken by their elected representatives.

The Japanese government led by President Shinzo Abe is setting the early example: There is no valid excuse for America to be left behind.

RINOs Rand Paul and Mike Lee are Part of the Problem in the DC Swamp

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

Guest Contribution By Gregg Updike

If I remember correctly, several years ago Rand Paul was held up and harassed by the newly created TSA at an airport in either Nashville or Kentucky. He also had his ribs badly busted up at his home a few years back by some leftist radical wacko as a protest to something that got the left “OUTRAGED” over something Trump did to “OUTRAGE” them.

Same with Rep. Steve Scalise of Louisiana and a bunch or GOP congressmen getting ambushed at a softball field by a Bernie Sanders’ supporter. In the past three years, we have seen numerous elected Democrats arguing for and promoting outright violence against members of the Trump Administration, Justice Brett Kavanaugh, and other GOP/Trump supporters. Can you imagine the hue and cry and “OUTRAGE” that would happen if top Democrat bananas like a Rep. Steny Hoyer got shot or if a Sen. Corey Booker got assaulted by a right wing-nut?

I just don’t understand how any Republican – whether conservative or moderate – feels compelled to blast this president to the liberal MSM; they seem to relish the opportunity to channel their inner McCain and spew their guts, which displays their RINO tendencies. These supposedly smart and savvy politicians make these appearances on enemy-held TV and constantly get played – or maybe they want to be played – with the net effect of giving the Trump Administration a black eye, a PR hit to no positive purpose.

What did Lee or Paul gain by bitching on TV about yesterday’s intel briefing? When did Barack the Obama ever give you a brief, or listen to ANY GOP input?

Don’t these idiots realize that the MSM would do everything they could to outright defeat and destroy the Pauls and the Lees of the world if given the chance? The media’s goal is to totally destroy the Republican Party and the conservative movement. They promote the radical, violent ANTIFA and BLM groups, and denigrate and impugn the peaceful conservative TEA Party. Yet these idiots – Lee and Paul – keep lining up to give the MSM ammo to hurt Trump, and by extension, themselves; quit giving them fodder.

I don’t remember any Republican (if they ever did, it was always couched in the most tepid terms possible), and certainly no Democrat ever blasting Obama for his “War Criminal Acts” of droning actual American citizens without due process (Are there any Democrats who believe in the rule of law, or due process?), or any other liberal policy when he was president. Where was the pushback on Fast and Furious, the IRS abuse scandal, pallets of cash to Iran, Dreamer EOs etc.?

Why can’t these politicians just shut up and be thought fools rather than open their mouths and remove all doubts? Taking opportunities to gratuitously rip or denigrate Trump on TV does not serve them well especially when they represent Red States/Districts and serves no good purpose. Leave that to the Democrats, and quit giving Schumer, Pelosi, and the MSM metaphorical orgasms!.

Wise up, grow up, and support our pro-American president! Be part of the solution and quit giving aid and comfort to the DEM/MEDIA ENEMY! If you RINOS can’t see the writing on the wall, or reality, then retire and let someone with brains and guts take your place.

Better yet, the primaries will soon be upon us which signals the opening of RINO Season. To all Red States and reasonable Purple States, please primary these old war horse losers and get some conservative leaders to replace them.

That is all.

Cocaine Mitch Has Outflanked San Fran Nan

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

Never, never, ever underestimate the ability of Mitch McConnell to work the process in the Senate. – Mitch McConnell told a very disappointed group of corrupt reporters on Tuesday that he now has the 51 Republican votes he needs to move forward with the very same Senate rules for a Senate trial on Nancy Pelosi’s ridiculous articles of impeachment that were used to govern the Senate trail of Bill Clinton.

As reported by U.S. News and World Report:

WASHINGTON (AP) — Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said he has the votes to start President Donald Trump’s impeachment trial as soon as House Speaker Nancy Pelosi releases the documents, winning support from GOP senators to postpone a decision on calling witnesses.

The announcement Tuesday was significant, enabling McConnell to bypass for now Democratic demands for new testimony as he launches the third impeachment trial in the nation’s history. It could begin this week if Pelosi sends the articles of impeachment to the Senate.

What this means is that no more than two of the three RINO Usual Suspect senators – Mitt Romney, Susan Collins and Lisa Murkowski – who have been targeted by the corrupt media for pressure campaigns designed to bully them into breaking party ranks have taken the bait.

As we cautioned you here at the Campaign Update the day after Christmas, you have to take media reports of senators going wobbly on this impeachment matter with a grain of salt. That was the day when the corrupt media went wild with a report that Murkowski had told an Anchorage, Alaska reporter that she was “disturbed” when she heard McConnell state that he would be working “hand in glove” with counsel for the President to determine how the Senate trial would be managed.

The press went crazy again last week, when Sen. Collins made a similar statement of “concern” about the process and indicated she was “open” to calling additional witnesses in the Senate. Well, at least one of those two ladies, and maybe both of them, have now indicated to the Senate Majority Leader that their concerns do not rise to the level of siding with a bunch of seditious Democrats who are attempting to execute a coup d’etat on U.S. soil.

You can say what you want to about these two ladies being “squishy” – which they both undeniably are on several specific issues – but it is a drastic error and completely unfair to them to equate their squishiness to being disloyal to the country, as the Democrats have become. One would think that the performance by Collins in supporting the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court would have schooled everyone on this regard forever where she is concerned.

Process-wise, what McConnell’s reaching this 51-vote threshold means is that, whenever San Fran Nan decides to finally release her sham articles of impeachment to the Senate, this is what will happen:

  • Chief Justice John Roberts will convene the Senate trial, with all 100 senators – including the four Democrats who are still presidential candidates – required to be in attendance for 6 days every week until the trial concludes;
  • The House Managers – a set of both Democrat and Republican House members – will present the case for impeachment, which will consume several days;
  • The lawyers for President Trump will then present his case, which will also likely consume several days;
  • Then and only then will the Senate hold a procedural vote to determine whether or not it will call additional witnesses;
  • More than likely, unless there is some major development related to Ukraine between now and then, the Senate will vote to dismiss the case at that time. That assumes that McConnell, the master of Senate process, can hold his 51 votes together.

All in all, assuming McConnell holds his majority together, the trial in the Senate will consume about two weeks.

Pelosi will now come under great pressure from the Democrat presidential candidates to go ahead and release the articles so that this can all play out prior to the Iowa caucuses that will take place on February 3. However, she wants to keep them in-hand until the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals rules on a pending case that would, if  it goes the Democrats’ way, give them access to the Mueller Witch Hunt grand jury material and potentially allow the House Democrats to enforce their sham subpoenas. But oral arguments were just heard in that case last Friday, and it could be weeks before any decision is rendered.

So, bottom line: Mitch McConnell has completely out-maneuvered Pelosi on this. She is now in a corner, clinging to a tactic that has failed to move public opinion against the President, and utterly failed to move any GOP senators into the pro-removal column.

Somebody go make her a Bloody Mary. She’s going to need one this morning. Maybe two.

That is all.

Tulsi Gabbard, the DC Swamp’s New Heretic

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

Burn the heretic! Burn the heretic! – So, what is really going on with this effort – detailed here yesterday – by the Democrat/media/RINO Axis of Propaganda to brand Hawaii Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard as a “Russian agent”? No doubt, many readers can already guess, right?

This is the Axis of Propaganda, which has saddled our nation with a three-year neverending coup effort, already building the foundation for its excuse for losing the 2020 election, in which they know they have little chance of preventing President Donald Trump from winning re-election to a second term. That foundation for excusing the loss – by blaming it all on the Russians one more time – will then serve as the kicking off point and justification for another four years of neverending coup efforts.

Yes, it’s all incredibly tiresome and futile, but this is all these people have left at this point. If you wonder why they keep doing this kind of thing, you have to understand that to the denizens of the DC Swamp, this is a literal fight for survival. President Trump isn’t just upsetting the apple cart, every action he takes is a direct assault on their corrupt way of life.

In Syria, Trump is destroying their foundation for never-ending Middle East wars, from which many trillion of dollars of graft and no-bid contracts have flowed to all the influence peddlers and hangers-on.

By implementing policies that have helped the oil and gas industry make our country more energy secure, Trump has helped destroy any compelling reason why our country must remain entangled in all of the Middle East’s 2,000 year-old conflicts between various religions and sects.

By investigating the actions of Quid Pro Joe and his ne’er-do-well son Hunter, Trump is exposing the kind of influence game that thousands of DC Swamp denizens spend their lives aspiring to become a part of.

By working to end the last 30 years of trade deals that have allowed China and other nations across the globe to drain America’s wealth, Trump is upsetting the 30-year effort to end America’s status as the world’s lone true superpower.

By investigating the origins of the FBI/CIA/State Department spying efforts against the Trump Campaign, Trump threatens to expose the Obama-era corruption that not only turned most federal departments into mob-like enterprises, but leads all the way up to the Obama White House.

By mentioning Crowd Strike and the DNC server on his call with Ukraine President Zelensky, Trump signaled that he knows full well where and how the neverending coup germinated.

And by doing everything he can to secure the southern border with Mexico, Trump exposes the globalist attempt to turn our nation into a classic socialist two-tiered society, one with a ruling class consisting of a few million and an easily-manipulated and controlled permanent underclass consisting of several hundred million.

If you understand these motivations by the Axis of Propaganda, you realize that the assault on Gabbard, a Major in the Hawaii National Guard who has served two full tours in the Middle East, is simply a shot across the bow signaling that the Swamp hasn’t surrendered, and its leaders are gearing up for another four years of the same old bullsh*t.

Gabbard has made herself a target due to her refusal to support the Axis of Propaganda’s narrative that President Trump is somehow an illegitimate president. She regularly admits that Trump did win the 2016 election fair and square in her stump speeches, and likely set off this week’s round of attacks on her character when she said it again during the Tuesday night debate. This is the main reason why I frequently refer to her as the only truly interesting person in the Democrat field – she’s the only actual independent voice on that debate stage.

In the world of the neverending Middle East warmongers like the Pantsuit Princess, anyone who favors the Trump policy of getting the U.S. out off all of these Islam-driven conflicts automatically becomes someone to be demonized as a tool of Vladimir Putin. The Axis of Propaganda has been running a social media effort to demonize Gabbard throughout 2019, and her statement that Trump really won in 2016 during the debate appears to have been the catalyst for the Coughing Crook to make things more public on Wednesday evening.

On domestic policy, Gabbard is just another Democrat socialist dedicated to wasting trillions of dollars every year on programs that have no chance of actually working. But on foreign and military policy, she is a DC Swamp heretic, someone whose reputation and career must be destroyed before she gains enough political influence and power to become an existential threat to the utterly corrupt way of life all the Swamp skunks and snakes have built for themselves.

Gabbard was on Tucker Carlson’s show Thursday night giving her side of this story. It’s a pretty strong interview and worth taking the 5 minutes to watch:

There is literally zero chance that Gabbard could ever become the nominee of the Democrat Party in 2020 – the Swamp rats who control the party now would rather destroy the party before they let that happen. But she is, at least on some matters, that rarest of rare animals in Washington today: A Democrat who is actually willing to tell the truth about the DC Swamp and the real nature of Hillary Clinton:

For that alone, she deserves our respect.

That is all.
