Jump on in, Alec Baldwin, the Water’s Fine!

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

Go for it, dude. – Fading actor and public assault and battery specialist Alec Baldwin took to his Twitter account yesterday (because that’s how all the fading celebrities communicate – right, Alyssa Milano?) and said this:

Yeah, that’s what Hillary Clinton thought, too. But, oh, hell, why not? Why not have an actor who is most famous for impersonating the President run against him? Would he be any less credible than than the assortment of cranks, hacks, and political grifters who are already in the race?

After all, the field already includes a candidate who is most famous for impersonating an Indian, another who thinks he is Spartacus, a senator who got ahead by sleeping around, another senator who is most notable for abusing her staff, a senator from New York who nobody can figure out why in the hell she’s in the race, a loser who wears sheep suits and rides a skateboard onto stage, a Commie who honeymooned at Lenin’s tomb, and a former vice president who can’t keep his hands off of women and children.

Would Alec Baldwin really bring any less credibility to a presidential race than that clown car? I mean, shoot, he did play Jack Ryan in a movie that one time, so he’s got that going for him.

And I haven’t even mentioned Pete Buttigieg yet. Here’s a guy who favors murdering children right up until the moment at which they would be born and even beyond, and he just spent half an interview on “Meet the Press” and much of his speech at something called the LGBTQ Victory Fund National Champagne Brunch questioning the religious beliefs of the sitting President and Vice President of the United States.

Well, isn’t that special? (Some of you baby boomers will get that reference; you Millennials will probably have to Google it.)

As I predicted a few weeks ago, Mr. Buttigieg is the latest media-facilitated “rising star” in Democrat circles, a guy with no real notable political achievements to speak of – other than getting elected to a notable office – but a guy who checks a lot of the demographic boxes favored by the Democrats’ social justice warrior voter base and who looks good on television. He’s probably about to be eclipsed by the looming, very large presence of the next media-facilitated Democrat “rising star”, Stacey Abrams, but for now, he’s da bomb in media circles, the guy all the Sunday shows are dying to have as their guest and all the fake newspapers and magazines like Vanity Fair can’t wait to profile and compare to Kennedys. He should enjoy all the attention while he can.

But wait, there’s more!

Now, we have this Eric Swalwell guy officially running. He made that official announcement on … wait for it… the Late Show with Stephen Colbert! Because of course he did.

Swalwell is a guy who has the maturity level of the average college frat social director – he is Otter from “Animal House” in the flesh.

His entire schtick is to go on CNN and MSNBC and lie about all the proof of Russia Collusion he has seen but can’t talk about in any detail because it’s all like doublesecretprobation and stuff and only he and Adam Schiff have seen it but everyone is supposed to believe him because he’s the social director for the biggest frat of all, the Democrat Party.


If Lorne Michaels and the writers at Saturday Night Live were intent on creating real humor these days rather than tiresome political swill, they’d invite Tim Matheson to guest host and have him do an impression of Eric Swalwell announcing his presidential run standing next to the beer keg at the frat party. Have Stephen Colbert play the Boone character. That would be some funny stuff right there.

But back to Alec Baldwin: He was likely joking with that tweet yesterday, but hey, why wouldn’t he go ahead and jump into this race? After all, it’s already a car filled with clowns, and he’s a professional clown these days, so he’d fit right in.

Kamala would probably even let him call shotgun.

That is all.

Trump Creates The Most Amazing Jobs Report In American History

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Sitting here on a Saturday morning wondering when Oprah and Barack are going to go up to Michigan to campaign on behalf of the single most-qualified candidate for the U.S. senate running anywhere in this election.  That would be John James, a black man, who is running against the execrable Debbie Stabenow, a white woman.

Ok, silly me – James is a Republican, so he doesn’t qualify as being “black” in the world of Oprah and Barack.

Speaking of America’s Biggest Mistake… – A day after the Oprah campaigned on behalf of Florida gubernatorial candidate Andrew Gillum, Barack Hussein Obama was down in the Sunshine State doing the same thing before an audience of dozens of Floridians.

As is Obama’s habit whenever campaigning in the South, he spent his entire speech trying like hell to sound like a southern black guy.  Take a listen to the fake accent here:


Just unbelievable, shameful pandering.  But that’s our Barack!

A human dumpster fire walks into a bar.  The bartender looks up and says, “What’ll it be, Alec Baldwin?” –  Washed-up actor and horrible father Alec Baldwin was taken to jail in New York City yesterday.  Again.  How many times is this?  Not sure.  But he always gets off, presumably because of white privilege, or something.

Anyway, he got into a dispute with a guy over a parking spot, because, hey, we all know how tough it is to find parking in Manhattan, thanks to reruns of Seinfeld.  The C-list actor had had a relative holding the spot for him as he prepared to back into it, but the victim pulled into the spot first.  Baldwin, being the demented hot-head that he truly is, jumped out of his car and punched the guy as he was feeding the parking meter.

Hilarity ensued.  No doubt the writers at Saturday Night Live have already come up with an extremely not-funny skit about it for tonight’s show, with Baldwin playing himself.  Because that’s how our depraved entertainment industry works.

Just wait until we find out Christine Ford never met Brett Kavanaugh, either. – Judy Munro-Leighton, one of the women who accused Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh of being a rapist last month, has recanted her story and admitted she never even met the man.  Guess she’s pissed that she didn’t get her own million-dollar GoFundMe account from the Democrats who planned the whole smear operation.

For her troubles, she does get her own personal criminal referral authored by Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley, so she’s got that going for her.  This was the third such referral Grassley has sent over to the Department of Justice in the last 10 days, and no one should think for a minute that he is done here.  Every one of the women who accused Kavanaugh was lying, and if we ever get a real attorney general into office, they might all end up serving time in federal prisons.

Speaking of news the fake New York Times and CNN will ignore… – We had possibly the single most stunning jobs report in American history on Friday.  Yes, the 250,000 new jobs was amazing; yes, the 3.7% rate of unemployment is fantastic; yes, the 3.1 real wage growth is terrific, the strongest in more than a decade. A new record 156,562,000 Americans employed?  Almost unbelievable.  Black unemployment?  An all-time low.  Hispanic unemployment?  An all-time low.  Female employment?  An all-time high.

But the most amazing part of this amazing report?  Not one, single, solitary industry in the United States of America suffered a net loss in jobs.  Not one.  Retail jobs? Up.  Manufacturing jobs?  Up.  Mining jobs?  Up.  Industrial jobs?  Up.  On and on it went, throughout every single segment of the most diverse and massive economy in the history of civilization.

Barack Obama was happy to destroy U.S. manufacturing jobs and ship them overseas, telling Americans that they were old-style jobs that were never coming back.  The Trump economy just created more than 1,000 new manufacturing jobs every DAY during October.  Every DAY.  This happened during a time in which all the “experts” predicted the Trump trade dispute with China would result in a net loss in manufacturing jobs.  Oops.  So much for “experts.”

Back in December, I wrote that the biggest economic problem our country would face in 2018 would be finding enough people to fill all the jobs that would result from the passage of the Trump tax cuts.  Today, after this incredible jobs report, employers have more job openings than we have qualified applicants looking to fill them.  I’m 62 years old – this has never happened in my lifetime.

Enjoy it while you can – next time we elect a Democrat to the presidency, it’ll all come to a crashing end.

That is all.

Update:  Just found some stunning numbers I wanted to share with my readers, courtesy of GOP Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel:

Vote Republican on Tuesday.  This is the easiest decision we have ever had.

An America Beset By Immature Children Acting Out

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Ok, lessee here….what’s been going on in America over the weekend?

  • Oh, well, we had three nights of rioting in St. Louis because a St. Louis jury acquitted a St. Louis cop who was falsely accused of murdering a St. Louis drug dealer six years ago.  To hear the rioters tell it, this drug dealer was the second coming of Rosa Parks and just the best person who ever walked the sidewalks of St. Louis.  I hadn’t said anything about this because riots in the greater St. Louis area have become such a regular occurrence since Barack Obama’s Justice Department began encouraging them and George Soros began funding professional rioters to create them in 2014 that they barely make a blip on my screen anymore.  They have become tiresome displays of immature children acting out over false outrages, the audience and sympathy for which grow smaller by the day.
  • Speaking of tiresome displays of immature children acting out over false outrages, for which the audience and sympathy grow smaller by the day, the Emmy Awards were handed out Sunday night.  Hosted by the execrable, unfunny late night outrage show host Stephen Colbert, the program predictably became nothing but a 3-hour platform for spoiled children to act out over false outrages, all directed at the President of the United States.  The overnight Nielsons weren’t available as of this writing, but we can be sure the ratings for this star-studded group temper tantrum will be down from last year – when they hit a historic low – and will continue to fall through the duration of the Trump Presidency.  This is what happens when performers go out of their way to gratuitously offend half of their potential audience at every given opportunity.
  • Rumors were flying prior to showtime that Hillary Clinton would make a cameo appearance at the show, but it turned out she was too busy signing books on the toilet paper aisle of her local CostCo to make the gig.  But Kate McKinnon, who played The Most Corrupt Woman in America in Saturday Night Live skits, took her presenting role as an opportunity to thank Crooked Hillary for her “grace”.  Proving, of course, that Kate McKinnon doesn’t know the difference between graft and grace.
  • Never to be left out, the NFL continues to demonstrate it has its own sub-population of immature children acting out, as players like Seattle’s Michael Bennett have now decided that protesting the national anthem just isn’t enough attention-seeking, and have begun taking their “look at me!” stunts onto the field.  Bennett celebrated a sack on Sunday with a single raised fist, the old “black power” salute made famous in the 1960s.
  • In other news that should not be news, pollster John McLaughlin came out with new data over the weekend, warning establishment Republicans in congress that they need to start actually keeping their campaign promises or Trump voters won’t turn out to re-elect them in next year’s mid-term elections.  The great wonder with this news item is that establishment Republicans apparently need polling data confirmation of something that would be obvious to the average third grader.  But this is how dim-witted establishment Republicans are.
  • The McLaughlin survey also found that a large plurality of surveyed GOP voters believe that Republicans in congress are working in opposition to President Trump’s efforts to “drain the swamp”, and fully 63% of GOP voters believe it is time for Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and Speaker of the House Paul Ryan to be replaced.  If any of these results surprise you, you just haven’t been paying close enough attention.
  • If establishment Republicans were intelligent (hah-hah! I’m cracking myself up here!), they would be working feverishly to keep some of those grand promises they all made during their 2016 campaigns.  Instead, they are currently in the midst of an 11-day vacation following just a week of work that came after their month-long August recess.  When they come back next week, they only have five working days left in September before they take their next vacation.
  • What all this shiftlessness and mendacity reminds us of is that there was a very good reason why establishment Republicans in Washington were, just 12 months ago, the single most-hated subset of the DC swamp among the public at large.  Donald Trump’s resurgent presidential campaign bailed them out from what had been shaping up to be a disastrous election cycle in 2016, but that crutch won’t be available in 2018.
  • Unless these layabout GOP dilettantes get their collective act together and start sending promise-keeping legislation to the President’s desk for signing, it becomes more likely by the day that Trump voters will abandon their stinking, er, “sinking” ship in next year’s elections.  Whether that would result in the turning over of one or both houses of congress remains a good question, since the Democrats remain in a state of insoluble disarray, but it all could be avoided by the Republicans’ simply doing some of the things they promised to do.  But this seems to be a bridge too far for McConnell, Ryan and their hapless minions, who obviously view keeping their vacation schedule sacrosanct as their number one duty.

Just another day in immature children acting out America.

That is all.
