Congress De-funds a Ghost as Trump Eliminates Another Obama-era Scam

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Tired of all this Winning yet?  Oh, wait…:  Great news, everyone!  The 2234-page atrocity that congress refers to as an omnibus “budget” contains a secret provision nobody read that would defund ACORN!  You remember ACORN, don’t you?  That Obama-supported leftist organization that cobbled together hundreds of thousand of fraudulent votes to help Obama fake-win the 2008 presidential election?  Yeah, that ACORN.

Well, ACORN won’t be getting no federal money anymore, thanks to your intrepid establishment congressional Republicans, who work every day to protect by-God America.  One problem, though:  ACORN hasn’t actually existed since 2009.  D’oh!

Your congressional Republicans:  Only a decade late to the fight.

If you have any shopping to do, today’s a great day to go the mall. – Why?  Because the leftist-organized “March for our Lives” rallies will be taking place all over the country.  So, many of those teenagers who spend their days making a nuisance of themselves at your local shopping center will be busy pretending to know something about guns and gun control at a demonstration somewhere else.  So, go shopping, America – the coast will never be more clear.

You can’t fight AR-15s with pistols! The pistol’s bullets are just too slow!  But kids throwing rocks, on the other hand… – Remember the “pistol bullets are just too slow” line of argument against President Trump’s proposal to protect school children by allowing trained teachers and administrators to carry concealed weapons?  Wasn’t that a special one?  Yeah….good times.

Well, no worries, school administrators in Schuylkill County, PA have the conundrum of protecting their kids all figured out, you betcha.  Just ask Superintendent Dr. David Helsel, who bragged to state lawmakers in Harrisburg on Friday that “Every classroom has been equipped with a five-gallon bucket of river stone. If an armed intruder attempts to gain entrance into any of our classrooms, they will face a classroom full students armed with rocks and they will be stoned.”  Yeah, that’ll work.

I swear I don’t make this stuff up.

She’s so fake, she embarrasses all the other fake journalists. – Of all the legion of fake journalists working in the nation’s capital today, the Washington Post’s dimwitted Jennfer Rubin is probably the fakest of them all.  Upon learning of John Bolton’s appointment as the next National Security Advisor, Rubin issued the following tweet:

But just a year ago, Rubin penned a piece advocating for the appointment of Bolton to become Deputy Secretary of State:  “There are few experienced hands who know how the State Department works today and have a granular understanding as to how it should function. If not Bolton himself, someone very much like him would be ideal in the No. 2 spot at State.”  But it gets even better.

As Warren Henry at the Federalist points out, the reason why Rubin wanted Bolton as the #2 guy at State was so that he would become a logical choice to become …wait for it…wait for it…National Security Advisor!  I kid you not:  “Unless Trump wants to go through the rigmarole of hiring a new face, the inevitable [Michael T.] Flynn replacement is very likely to come from within the administration — the No. 2 person at the state or defense departments or some other player with whom Trump has developed a relationship of trust.”

Thus, it becomes crystal clear that Rubin’s real problem with Bolton is simply that he was appointed by Donald Trump, and at the WaPo, agreeing with the sitting, duly-elected POTUS is simply not tolerated.

Trump continues to disassemble the un-American Obama legacy, brick by disgraceful brick. – The fake news media is reporting that President Trump “banned transgenders from serving in the military” Friday evening.  That’s actually not true.  What he did was implement a new policy – based on the recommendation from Defense Secretary James Mattis – that will ban the ongoing scam in which persons with gender dysphoria have joined the military in order to take advantage of a policy implemented by Barack Hussein Obama that forces the taxpayers to pay for their gender reassignment surgery.

Towards that end, the new policy states that “transgender persons with a history or diagnosis of gender dysphoria — individuals who the policies state may require substantial medical treatment, including medications and surgery — are disqualified from military service except under certain limited circumstances.”  Individuals who have been “stable for 36 consecutive months in their biological sex prior to accession,” and those who “do not require a change of gender” will be exempt from the new policy and allowed to serve.

In other words, the scam – which Obama actively encouraged – of enlisting in one of the armed services for a three-year hitch and spending most of that time undergoing gender-transition surgeries at taxpayer expense es no mas.  On the other hand, trans-gender individuals who truly wish to serve their country honorably remain welcome in the U.S. armed services, as they should be.

For all you enraged SJWs out there, this what is known as good public policy.

Just another day in erasing the disappearing Obama legacy America.

That is all.

That Sad Moment When You Realize The FBI Is As Fake As The Fake News Media

  • I want to believe in the FBI.  Hell, who doesn’t?  Who doesn’t want to believe that our nation’s highest federal law enforcement agency is a stand-up deal, that we can trust the agency and its leaders to be honest and do the right thing?  Of course we all hope that is the case.  Which is why it is so distressing this morning to learn that the FBI’s stonewalling of multiple court orders and congressional committees not only continues, but has in fact escalated.
  • Late on Monday, we learned that the Deputy Director of the FBI, Andrew McCabe, had suddenly and without real explanation cancelled his long-scheduled appearance to testify before the House  Intelligence Committee today.  There was no immediate response from anyone on the Committee, but Fox News reporter Chad Pergram tweeted Monday night that “congressional sources” told him that a subpoena would likely be issued to try to compel his appearance.  That’s fairly ironic, since it took a threatened subpoena in early November to convince McCabe to agree to testify in the first place.
  • Pergram further reported that his sources believe McCabe cancelled his appearance due to  a concern that he would be questioned about Justice Department muckety-muck Bruce Ohr and his wife Nellie, who we also learned on Monday worked for Fusion GPS during the 2016 campaign.  Ohr, of course, was recently “reassigned”, i.e., marginalized within the DOJ when it was learned that he held meetings with Fusion GPS – the firm that was hired by the Clinton Campaign and the DNC to collude with Russian officials to compile the fake Trump Dossier – throughout the 2016 election campaign.
  • So, because he was “concerned” that he might be forced to answer questions he obviously does not want to answer, McCabe apparently chose what has become FBI standard policy in 2017, which is to join the agency’s ever-growing stonewalling of any testimony or records production that might reveal the truth about what senior officials at the FBI and the DOJ were up to during the 2016 election cycle.
  • A DOJ spokesman is making the rounds of the TV morning shows claiming it’s all just an innocent “scheduling error,” but that’s just another obvious dodge.  How is any American supposed to have confidence in a “law-enforcement” agency whose obvious working policy is to blatantly and repeatedly stonewall efforts by others to discover if laws were violated?  It’s an absurd expectation that will only be complied with by those who have been brainwashed to believe anything their government tells them to believe.
  • Asking Americans to do that is no different than the hilariously absurd comment by Atlantic Editor David Frum on Sunday that “mistakes are precisely the reason people should trust the media…They get partial pieces of the truth. So in the process there are going to be overshoots and undershoots.”
  • Frum’s idiotic remarks would have some level of validity if there were ever any “undershoots.”  But what we see from our fake national news media where President Trump and his Administration is concerned is a constant stream of laughable “overshoots”, false reports that always, without exception, cast a negative light on the President.
  • Think about it:  over the past 2-1/2 years we have seen dozens, if not hundreds, of instances in which a fake reporter from a fake media outlet like the NYTimes, the WaPo, CNN, and NBC rushes to get out a “bombshell” report that is then repeated throughout the entirety of the fake media as “the beginning of the end for Donald Trump”, only to have said the fake media outlet who filed the initial report have to retract or “correct” it because it turned out to be entirely false.  We saw three such instances last week alone, and pretty much no week has gone by during 2017 in which we have not seen at least one example of this pattern taking place.
  • Yet, you would be at great pains to produce a single example over the last 30 months in which the fake news media made, in Frum’s parlance, a “mistake” that was false in a way that worked to the President’s benefit.
  • Here’s a clue for David Frum:  when a long series of events flow in only one direction, those events are not “mistakes”;  rather, they are the norm.
  • When it comes to the FBI or the fake news media, no American can trust them anymore.  The biggest “mistake” anyone can make is to try to defend their institutionalized behavior.

Just another day in fake FBI America.

That is all.

Fake News, Fake Republicans and Real, Live Snowflakes – Merry Resistmas, America!

  • Now we know why his approval rating in Arizona is 11%. – Hey, remember when Arizona Sen. Jeff Flake used to pretend to be a Republican, just like his fellow Senator, John McCain?  Yeah, those were good times, but they’re over now.  On Tuesday, Flake wrote a check to ultra-liberal Democrat Doug Jones, who is running against the very weird Roy Moore for the senate seat in Alabama.  Embarrassingly, Flake’s check to Jones, which he made sure to trumpet all over the social media space, was for a paltry $100, meaning he’s not only rankly dishonest, he’s also a skinflint.  But hey, liberals are always far more generous giving away other people’s money than contributing their own, right?
  • Hey, all you SJWs, snowflakes and pussy hat wearers, if you lack a tree-topper for your “holiday” tree this year, a mail-order company can supply you one of your favorite “inspiring woman”, so long as your favorite “inspiring woman” is either Beyonce’, Serena Williams or Hillary Clinton!  I swear I don’t make this stuff up: 
  •  
  • Our young people seem to suffer from a severe lack of self-awareness. – The UK Telegraph carried a piece yesterday titled, “Don’t call us snowflakes – it damages our mental health, say young people”.  I kid you not, it’s a serious piece.  Note to young people:  If being called a ‘snowflake’ damages your mental health, that means YOU’RE A DAMN SNOWFLAKE!  How is it possible that that really needed to be said?
  • Tuesday was a big day for fake news news.  Let’s start with ABC News’s announcement that its star fake reporter, Brian Ross, will no longer be allowed to cover stories involving President Trump when he comes back from his 30 day holiday in January.  ABC had also made sure to leak the text of a “memo” written by its News Division President James Goldston, ostensibly lambasting his staff over Ross’s false report from last Friday, which temporarily tanked the stock market.  This is all window dressing, folks – ABC used the same tactic after Ross filed a previous fake report a few years ago, falsely tying a mass shooter to the Tea Party.  Nothing is going to change at ABC – the news fakery will go on unabated.
  • Meanwhile, over at NBC, if you are laboring under the illusion that Matt Lauer’s intra-office sexcapades were some sort of big secret at the Peacock Network, well, think again.  Everyone at NBC – and apparently at every other fake news media outlet – knew everything about Lauer, and many of his colleagues were willing participants and abettors of his behavior.  That’s the only reasonable conclusion one can draw from the report linked here from Fox News, which details the proceedings of a 2008 obscene roasting of Lauer at which everyone assembled in the room laughed uproariously about the fake news host’s debauchery.  I would post out-takes from it, but the Campaign Update draws the line at repeating jokes about anal sex.  In any event, if you’re thinking that NBC’s convenient jettisoning of Lauer – which will save the network $27 million annually – means the culture there will change, you should probably disabuse yourself of that silly notion.  No word if Charlie Rose and Mark Halperin had seats at the head table, but it does seem likely.
  • Hey, remember when real journalists would always require at least two corroborating sources before running with a big news story?  Yeah, those times are dead. – The normally fairly reliable Bloomberg ran with a report mid-day on Tuesday that Special Counsel Robert Mueller had issued a subpoena to Deutsche Bank demanding it turn over client records related to its relationship with President Trump.  Within a few hours, Trump’s legal team had completely debunked the story, and one can only wonder  what the motive was for running with it in the first place, given that Bloomberg cited only a single, naturally unidentified source for the information.
  • But hey, faking the news is a highly-competitive business, and if Bloomberg’s gonna play with the big boys at the NYTimes and the WaPo, inconvenient things like real journalistic practices and editorial control have to be tossed out the proverbial window, right?  Right.

Just another day in fakety fakey fake news media America.

That is all.

Kathleen Parker Proves The Moore Campaign Right About The Washington Post

Today’s Campaign Update

  • The reliable Democrat shills at the Associated Press have a lovely puff piece out this morning on Sen. Al Franken’s growing groping scandal.  The piece, titled “Franken’s rising political star obscured by accusations”, portrays the SNL refugee as an intrepid pursuer of truth, justice and the leftist way, all the while putting his serial degrading and groping of women in the best light possible.
  • My favorite part is the following paragraph:  “It’s always a great disappointment when leaders you like and admire do bad stuff,” said Mike Lux, a liberal Democratic consultant. He said it was premature to say how the allegations would affect Franken’s career. But, Lux added, “If more incidents come to light, he’s got a real problem.”  So, just so we’re keeping score here, four gropes and abuses of women is ok for a Democrat Senator.  But any more than that, why, he’s got a problem.  Holy cow.
  • So good of you to finally point that out. – Meanwhile, the #NeverTrump nitwits who run the National Review published a piece by Deroy Murdock on Thanksgiving Day that contains unbridled praise of …wait for it…DONALD TRUMP!  I kid you not, Mr. Murdock, who is a contributing editor for TNR, has awakened to the fact that, as he puts it, “The Never Trump faction still claims that the president of the United States “is no conservative.” And yet, with rare deviations (such as free trade), he spends nearly every day implementing the conservative agenda.”  Ahem.  Some of us have been telling you guys this for ten months now.  Welcome to the party, pal.
  • The Award for The Most Absurd Global Warming Claim of the Month goes to a group of chemists at the UK’s universities of Reading, Bristol and Bath, who issued a report this week claiming that frying foods is now causing the earth to heat up.  I swear I don’t make this stuff up.  Who could?
  • It’s a dirty job, but somebody’s gotta do it. – In case you still harbor reservations about how much you love the job Sarah Huckabee Sanders is doing as White House Press Secretary, read this column from Kathleen Parker at the Washington Post, and you’ll lose all doubt.  Ms. Parker, who used to pretend to be a conservative but now just spends her column space endlessly whining about the Trump presidency, complains that Ms. Sanders “humiliates the media on a daily basis.”  Ummmmm…yeah, so?  Is there a point here?
  • Ms. Parker’s big complaint – her last straw with Ms. Sanders, apparently – was that Sanders began her press briefing on Wednesday by – gasp! – asking various members of the press corps to talk about one thing for which they are actually thankful.  It seems that, in Parker’s mind, asking this band of eternal grumps to say one positive thing about anything amounts to “humiliating” them.  “Yet again, she controlled the crowd, though this time by candy-coating her usual condescension with faux fellowship,” Parker wrote.  “I’m thankful I wasn’t in the room.”  Alrighty, then.
  • But Parker wasn’t done, oh, no, she wasn’t:  “For a press secretary to require professional journalists to essentially beg for their supper, surrendering their adversarial posture like a dog commanded to Drop The Bone, is an infantilizing tactic.  The effect is to neutralize the opposition.”
  • First of all, what “professional journalists” would those be?  The White House press corps is nothing but the single biggest collection of fake journalists on the planet.  There isn’t a real journalist among this gaggle of primping, preening asshats.
  • Second, how does asking any person to talk about one positive thing in their life “infantilize” them?  If the price of adulthood is chronic grumpiness, someone failed to point that out to about 99% of the people on this planet.  Kathleen Parker, though, obviously got the memo.
  • Third, on that part about “surrendering their adversarial posture like a dog commanded to Drop The Bone,” well, this particular pack of dogs dropped those bones for eight long, disgusting Obama years that amounted to a disgrace to the entire profession of journalism.  So spare us that nonsense, Kathy.
  • On Wednesday, a spokesman for the Roy Moore campaign referred to the Washington Post as a “worthless piece of crap.”  Ms. Parker’s column presents irrefutable proof of the accuracy of that assessment.

Just another day in worthless crap journalism America.

That is all.

Media’s “Trump Is A Monster” Narrative Dies In Houston

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

  • We should expect the fake journalists, fake anchors and fake editors at CNN, the NYTimes, the WaPo and the broadcast networks to shift their coverage away from Hurricane Harvey starting today.  The images and films from President Trump’s and First Lady Melania Trump’s visit to Houston on Saturday are simply too compelling and devastating to the media/Democrat concocted “Trump is a monster” narrative for them to continue airing them.  Thus, we can anticipate lots and lots of focus on things like DACA, the debt ceiling and the federal budget this week, even though disaster coverage is without question more lucrative and better for ratings at CNN.  Because this is what the fake news media does in its never-ending role as sad toadies for the Democrat Party.
  • If you want a great example of how the President’s humanizing visit to Houston and Louisiana is destroying the left’s world view, take a look as this piece, which discusses the shock an MSNBC reporter has felt as he’s been assaulted by the angry left  for tweeting a message acknowledging the reality of the President’s visit, and how Houstonians of all ages, colors and genders reacted to him.  Very educational about the true agenda of those on the angry left.
  • Here’s the reality that the fake news media has run smack-dab into over the last week, while covering the recovery efforts in Texas:  Most Americans are just really good, normal people.  They care about one another, they help one another, the rednecks and Cajuns in their fishing boats don’t pick and choose to rescue the people who look just like them first, leaving those with different-colored skin to wait in line.  They rush into harm’s way and start getting people out indiscriminately, take them to safety, and rush back in to do it all over again.
  • For the media people who live in their safe little bubbles in New York, Washington and Los Angeles, this is utterly shocking.  Because their own reporting has constantly informed them that everyone out there in “flyover country”, i.e., the other 98% of America, is a hateful racist, bigots who only want to harm people who aren’t just like they are.
  • I spent most of last week in Las Vegas, at a hotel that did not carry Fox News, and was thus forced to watch the coverage on CNN and, to a much lesser extent, MSNBC.  This turned out to be a very gratifying experience, as reporter after reporter found him- or herself utterly frustrated whenever they would ask any Texan a leading question designed to promote conflict, which is all they ever try to do.  Watching these elitist simpletons try to recover from their shock as Texan after Texan invariably responded with only caring and gratitude towards everyone who was working to help, and to the local, state and federal officials who were organizing shelter and recovery efforts, was a true heart-warming experience for me.
  • These fake news outlets, who have been coordinating with the Democrat Party for the last 10 months to try to create the “next Watergate” out of whole cloth, all went into their coverage of the Harvey catastrophe anticipating being able to create the “next Katrina”.  Now, they’re all down in the mouth be cause a) Houston isn’t New Orleans, b) Texas isn’t Louisiana and has a vastly more competent government, and c) it isn’t 2005 anymore, and FEMA and the rest of the federal government has learned a lot about how to respond to such events over the last dozen years.
  • But for all these left-wingers in the fake news media and the Democrats whose talking points they parrot each and every day, the worst learning out of all of this is that their efforts to portray the current POTUS as a deranged monster cannot survive when they run up against real video of him being himself among a group of struggling, displaced Americans of all colors, sizes, shapes, ages and creeds.
  • Donald Trump isn’t a monster at all.  He’s a real President, and a real American.  And that is a truth the fake news media simply cannot focus on for any length of time.  Thus, ratings and website hits be damned, these fake news sites will now move onto other topics that fit better with their narrative, because that is who they are, and what they do.

Just another day in fake news media America.

That is all.

Why Is The NYTimes Talking About Melania Trump’s Shoe Choices?

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

  • The fake journalists at the NYTimes, always on the cutting edge of news that no one living more than 2 miles from Central Park cares about, carried a feature piece in its fake coverage of Hurricane Harvey  focused on….wait for it…wait for it…the shoes worn by First Lady Melania Trump!  I swear I don’t make this stuff up.
  • The piece, titled “Melania Trump, Off to Texas, Finds Herself on Thin Heels,” was written by some smarmy elitist named Vanessa Friedman, and carried in the fake newspaper’s Fashion and Style section.  The big news the Times found relevant to someone somewhere was that the First Lady wore her traditional spike heels when exiting the White House to board Marine One, but was wearing sneakers by the time she arrived in Corpus Christi, Texas with President Trump in a show of support for the people of Texas.
  • In justifying spending 700 words or so on this insignificant subject, the author pretends to simply be reflecting a major social media controversy. She proves said controversy exists by citing a single tweet from the terminally insipid Chelsea Handler, along with a tweet from some anonymous Twitter user.  Yes, because we all should really, really, really care what Chelsea Handler thinks of the First Lady’s shoe attire.
  • In response to the Times, Stephanie Grisham, the spokesman for the First Lady, said “It’s sad that we have an active and ongoing natural disaster in Texas, and people are worried about her shoes.”  Yes, exactly.  But this is the NYTimes, and creating fake controversies is apparently the only reason it exists anymore.
  • And can we be really honest about why Chelsea Handler feels the need to take shots at the First Lady’s choice of shoes?  She’s jealous.  Seriously, Chelsea Handler is jealous because – let’s be honest – Melania Trump rocks in stiletto heels, something Ms. Handler would obviously love to be able to do.  The reality is that the First Lady rocked in those sneakers, too, which no doubt drove Ms. Handler into a vodka-fueled rage.
  • Envy and jealousy are ugly emotions.  Nowhere do they reveal themselves more starkly and succinctly than in snarky, 140-character messages on Twitter.  And nowhere do they manifest more pettily than on the Fashion and Style pages of the NYTimes.
  • But it wasn’t just the NYTimes – fake news sites like the Daily Beast, The Washington Post and the Hollywood Reporter also carried similarly snarky commentary on the First Lady’s fashion choice.  It must be sad to have nothing better to do with your time while pretending to be a working journalist.  Really, really sad.
  • Writing for the Washington Post, fake journalist Robin Givhan tried to dress her piece up as semi-serious commentary in which the First Lady’s shoe choices serve as a metaphor for a presidency that is out of touch with the common man, as if a fake journalist with the WaPo has any idea what the “common man” thinks about anything:  “Melania Trump is the kind of woman who travels to a flood-ravaged state in a pair of black snakeskin stilettos. Heels this high are not practical. But Trump is not the kind of woman who has to be practical. Heels this high are not comfortable. Comfort is not the point. Neither hers nor yours…Heading off to Texas, she looked dressed to view a natural disaster from a distance, from on high, not up close. Her ensemble implied that people’s personal stories would be ferried to her after they had been vetted and tidied up.”
  • Wow.  Robert Duval’s character in True Grit would have read that passage and said “I call that bold talk for a fake journalist sitting comfortably in her cube funded by the world’s richest man.”  Again, look at the jealousy flowing out of Ms. Givhan’s sentences.  The envy.  The rage.
  • Here’s reality:  If Melania Trump’s husband were a Democrat, she’d be universally hailed as America’s foremost fashion icon, and praised by the very same jealous liberals who today are bemoaning her choice of shoes.  Melania Trump looks fantastic in anything she wears, and this obviously drives people like Ms. Givhan crazy.
  • Melania Trump is obviously very conscious of the image she projects in her role as America’s First Lady, as any First Lady should be.  She is obviously most comfortable in public wearing high heels.  If this drives fake journalists at the NYTimes and Wapo, and leftist c-list celebrities into jealous rages, so be it.
  • I can’t believe I just wrote 744 words on this subject, but there it is.

Just another day in jealous liberal rage America.

That is all.
