Final Prediction: Trump Wins Again in America’s First Outrage Election

Let Freedom ring, let the white bird sing;
Let the whole world know that today is a day of reckoning;
Let the weak be strong, let the right be wrong;
Roll the stone away, let the guilty pay; it’s Independence day! – Martina McBride, written by Gretchen Peters

Ok, here’s my final projection: Donald Trump will be re-elected in an electoral landslide that will easily eclipse his 2016 victory. Trump will win every state he won in 2016 – yes, including MI and WI and PA – and will add several other states to his column. Think Nevada and Virginia and New Hampshire and New Mexico.

Final tally: Trump 344, Biden 194. A clear and convincing landslide in America’s first Outrage Election.

The popular vote will be closer – much closer, thanks to the brainwashed masses in California and New York and Illinois and New Jersey, although Jersey will be closer than most people are thinking right now. Illinois will be closer, too. I still think Trump wins the popular vote, but barely, by a million votes or so.

Here’s the beauty part: Trump will have coattails, and those coattails will bring endangered GOP senators like Sonny Perdue in Georgia and Joni Ernst in Iowa and Martha McSally in Arizona and Little Lindsey Graham in South Carolina over the finish line despite the hundreds of millions in Hollywood/New York money that poured into the campaigns of their Democrat challengers. Couple those holds with pickups by John James in Michigan and Tommy Tubberville in Alabama, and what will be a very narrow loss by Cory Gardner in Colorado, and you have the GOP holding a 54 seat majority in the Senate for the next two years, an incredible upset considering they had 14 more seats up for re-election than the Democrats did in this cycle.

Now, here’s the bad news: The Red Wave likely will not translate to the GOP picking up a majority in the House, due mainly to incredibly inept campaigns run by R congressional candidates in Texas, Georgia and several other states. Unfortunately, the Republicans in those states chose to take the advice of the same pollsters that advise Democrats and have run campaigns in which you would never even know they are Republicans, always a losing strategy for the Rs.

The prime example of this is Genevieve Collins in Texas’s 32nd district, who is challenging Collin Allred in a very even district. Collins ran one of the most effective primary campaigns I have ever seen, prevailing over a strong field with ads that clearly identified her as the all-American anti-socialist Republican in the race who would go to Washington to get stuff done. Some of you may remember I predicted that, if she ran the same campaign this fall, she would take this seat back from Allred, who unseated longtime incumbent R Pete Sessions in 2018.

Sadly, Collins has listened to advisors who told her to completely shift in the general election, running as Collin Allred light, a non-partisan candidate with touch-feely messaging who you would never know was a Republican or conservative. Many other GOP candidates are obviously using the same polling and communications firms to advise them, and they will pretty much all lose in the even districts as a result.

So, keep an eye on Texas 32: If you see Collins winning tonight, then you are probably going to see a Republican majority ushered in in January. My bet is she will lose because she failed to distinguish herself from her very leftwing opponent with a 100% record of fealty to Nancy Pelosi. An incredible lost opportunity that need not have happened.

Whether the presidential election gets called tonight depends on the President being able to run up enough electoral votes in other states to make Pennsylvania irrelevant, given that the corrupt Democrat governor and Lt. Governor have already made it clear they will not even start releasing vote counts until Wednesday. That’s why the states to watch early will be Florida, Virginia and New Hampshire. If we see Florida and either of those other two states called for Trump tonight, then you can feel safe that it’s all over but the crying.

Early voting trends indicate that President Trump will win Florida by a significantly larger margin than he did in 2016, so it could end up being called much earlier than the wee hours of the morning that we saw four years ago. A Trump win in Virginia would signal a Red Wave of epic proportions, and such electoral waves do not stop at state borders – they roll nationally. My bet is that the much higher turnout by non-college educated white voters and higher percentage of black and Hispanic voters going to Trump (his Black vote percentage could be as high as 18%, double what he got in 2016) will make the difference, and the media that is hoping for a hung verdict to facilitate the Democrats’ post-election voter fraud plans will end up having little choice but to call the election before sunrise on Wednesday.

Disclaimer: I called every aspect of the 2016 election right, including the GOP waves in congress and the state houses. But I did miss on my prediction that the GOP would hold the house majority in 2018, so I have been wrong before.

Those of you who have read me for the past several years know that my theory on presidential elections is that they all come down to being decided based on national voter inertia, not on local issues as many pundits like to pretend. That inertia in the past has always either moved in favor of retaining the status quo, or wanting change. 2016 was a change election, and Trump won because he was the only true change agent in the race.

This year is the first time in my lifetime that is different. This election is neither a status quo or change election: This is our first outrage election.

This year has been more difficult to get a good handle on, complicated as it has been by the China Virus pandemic and the entire national news media/social media apparatus turning itself into a very real Nazi-style propaganda tool for the Democrats. The media’s wall of disinformation about the virus and the summer of Democrat-sponsored rioting that destroyed vast swaths of a dozen Democrat-run cities resulted in it taking a long time for the public to figure out which side to direct its focused outrage towards.

Over the past month, the public has figured it out, and millions of Americans are outraged by all the deception. The big turnout by non-college educated white voters who are sick of being portrayed in the media as privileged racists is one big indicator of this outrage, but it is not the only one. Also outraged by all the deception are the Black voters who are turning to Trump due to their outrage about having been pandered and lied to by race-baiting hucksters for half a century and more, and millions of Hispanic voters who are equally outraged by the media’s portraying them as a monolithic block with no diversity of thought.

That outrage, that focused anger towards the media and the utterly corrupt political establishment in Washington, DC, is what is producing America’s first Outrage Election, and it is why Donald J. Trump will serve a second term in office thanks to a resounding victory today.

I’ve been wrong before, but I don’t think this is one of those days.

God Bless all of you, and God Bless America.

After passing all of his medical tests with flying colors and receiving a sign-off from his doctors, President Donald Trump was released from Walter Reed Medical Center Monday evening and returned to the White House, causing the corrupt news media to fly into more fits of uncontrolled rage.

Glorious.

Friday News Roundup: DOJ Puts Maxwell on the Epstein Narrative and an Encouraging New Poll

Epstein tapes? What Epstein tapes? – With rumors continuing to circulate that Ghislaine Maxwell has copies of all of Jeffrey Epstein’s illicit client sex tapes and plans to use them as a means of making a deal with the U.S. Department of Justice, now seems a good time to warn everyone to temper your expectations here.

Understand that, because Ms. Maxwell is being held in a federal lockup in New York City, her case will be prosecuted by the Southern District of New York (SDNY). That would be the very same SDNY that has had access to Anthony Weiner’s laptop computer since 2016 and has done absolutely nothing with it. Historically, the SDNY has been the place where cases inconvenient to the DC Swamp go to die.

We can hope that the steps William Barr has taken recently – the firing of lead U.S. Attorney Geoffrey Berman being the most obvious among them – will change that rule of thumb for this case, but hope is all we have.

Speaking of cases going to New York City to die… – Yesterday, Ms. Maxwell’s clothes were taken from her and replaced with paper clothing as federal officials now fear she might commit “suicide” just like Epstein did (not do) last August.

From a story at Business Insider:

Federal officials were so worried Jeffrey Epstein’s longtime confidante Ghislaine Maxwell might take her own life after her arrest that they took away her clothes and sheets and made her wear paper attire while in custody, an official familiar with the matter told The Associated Press.

The steps to ensure Maxwell’s safety while she’s locked up at a federal jail in New York City extend far beyond the measures federal officials took when they first arrested her in New Hampshire last week.

The Justice Department has implemented additional safety protocols and federal officials, outside of the Bureau of Prisons, have been specifically tasked with ensuring there’s adequate protection and the prisons protocols are being followed, the official said. The protections are in case she harms herself, and in case other inmates wish to harm her.

[End]

Oh, gee, guess what? Jeffrey Epstein himself was also placed on suicide watch shortly after his arrest last July, because of “concerns” by those same federal officials. Guess what else? Epstein was conveniently taken off of suicide watch – and the special security measures that come with that status – just a few days before he committed (not really) “suicide.”

You see where this is going, right? Right. So far, Maxwell’s getting exactly the same narrative that Epstein got.

Pray for this wretched human being’s safety. She needs all the help she can get.

For those who thought there was no silver lining to this COVID-19 deal, I give you this…

Cool!

If you insist on being obsessed with polls, here’s one for you. – The UK Sunday Express has a new poll out that indicates that the radical, Marxist Black Lives Matter-led riots and demonstrations are doing a lot of harm to Joe Biden and the Democrats.

From the article at the Express:

THE FALLOUT from the Black Lives Matter protests in the US offers Donald Trump his best chance of winning the Presidential election, a shock poll for the Sunday Express has revealed.

According to the poll conducted by the Washington based thinktank the Democracy Institute, President Trump is neck and neck with his rival Joe Biden on 47 percent. However, Mr Trump would win in the electoral college system by 309 to 229 delegates because he is on course to win the crucial swing states including Florida, Iowa, Michigan, Minnesota, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin where he outpolls Vice President Biden by 48 percent to 44 percent.

The findings come as the US President went to the iconic Mount Rushmore to make a speech attacking “the angry mobs” who want to erase America’s history.

He told the crowd of supporters: “There is a new far-left fascism that demands absolute allegiance. If you do not speak its language, perform its rituals, recite its mantras, and follow its commandments then you will be censored, banished, blacklisted, persecuted, and punished. Not gonna happen to us.”

According to the poll, the concerns over the effects of the protests appear to be boosting Mr Trump’s chances even though his campaign is believed to be flagging.

Given a choice between which phrases identified their views 71 percent chose “all lives matter” while 29 percent picked “black lives matter”.

[End]

Now, is this poll any more valid than those polls showing Biden with an 8 to 12 point lead? Probably not. But there are two key things to emphasize about it:

– It was taken right in the wake of President Trump’s speech at Mount Rushmore, and

– That preference question at the end between “Black Lives Matter” or “All Lives Matter” is extremely telling, given that 98% of our corrupt news media has been trying to shame every American against believing the latter for five long years now.

Make no mistake about it, the President’s speech at Mount Rushmore was essentially the kickoff point to his general election campaign. Before that, other than the Tulsa rally, he had not been campaigning at all.

Trump is armed with an enormous financial war chest now, and he is about to start flooding the airwaves with both positive messages about America’s rapid economic recovery and negative messages about Biden’s obvious elderly state and cognitive decline. Biden himself has provided an amazing wealth of moments for the Trump media people to pick and choose from.

Polls taken before one candidate – as all of those corrupt U.S. media polls have been to this point – are utterly meaningless and should be ignored. The Trump campaign will begin in earnest in the coming weeks. If you see him still trailing significantly in the legitimate polls like Trafalgar, Rasmussen and HarrisX in late September, then you might want to start getting a little concerned.

For now, you should remain calm and confident that Trump is going to WIN. Because WINNING is what he does.

That is all.

Recapping A Historic Week of #WINNING

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

When the history of the Trump Administration is written, the week just past will be remembered as the week in which the tide of history turned, not just in favor of President Donald Trump, but in favor of the American people and the American Republic as well. The forces of globalism are in retreat and tatters all over the developed world, and nowhere is that more clear than here in the United States, thanks to Mr. Trump’s endurance and leadership.

Let’s take a look at the events that have taken place since last Saturday, February 1, 2020:

Brexit becomes official. – There is no question that the fortunes of the Brexit movement in the UK and the nationalist Trump movement in the U.S. have been intertwined since the day Donald and Melania Trump rode the escalator into the lobby of Trump Tower to announce his candidacy. After a long and bitter, 3-1/2 year battle since the day it had been initially approved by the British voters, Brexit became official at 12:00 midnight, February 1, restoring the national sovereignty over the United Kingdom.

That moment in time came roughly 5 minutes after the United States Senate had voted to reject the calling of any new witnesses in its impeachment trial of President Trump, ensuring his ultimate acquittal in the Democrat/media’s absurd coup d’etat effort. The symbolism of those two historic events occurring within mere minutes of one another cannot be overemphasized.

The President’s historic State of the Union Speech – The optics around this speech could not have been more positive for President Trump or more negative for Nancy Pelosi and the Democrats in attendance. Americans got to see the true nature of the leftist radicals who make up the party’s caucus in congress, as shot after shot from the cameras showed their members scowling, jeering and even at times hissing as the President introduced a young mother who gave birth to a premature baby; another single mom to whose child he awarded an opportunity scholarship; a talk radio host with stage 4 cancer to whom he had the First Lady award a Medal of Freedom; and the rightful president of Venezuela.

The speech drove Speaker Nancy Pelosi into such a pique of outright rage that she tore the text to shreds as Trump finished, creating a visual so stunning and depraved that it will likely be used in most Republican TV ads for the general election.

Full acquittal. – Just 20 hours later, President Trump became the second president to be fully acquitted of impeachment charges, a verdict that will live in history for all-time. Simultaneously, the leader of the anti-Trump RINO faction, Mitt Romney, proved himself to be a despicable snake by becoming the first senator in history to cast a pro-conviction vote on one of the two articles of impeachment. Whether he understands it or not, Romney is now finished a viable candidate for any future GOP presidential nomination. As has so often been the case, yet another Trump enemy destroys himself with his own actions.

Dismissal of the Emoluments Clause litigation. – In a unanimous decision, a 3-judge panel of the DC Circuit Court of Appeals – none of whom are Trump appointees – dismissed the ridiculous and abusive lawsuit brought by 29 Democrat senators and 186 Democrat representatives alleging that President Trump had violated the Emoluments Clause of the Constitution. Another major win for the President in a clear case of mindless harassment by the Democrats.

The utter collapse of Joe Biden. – Quid Pro Joe Biden, who has been the clear front-runner for the Democrat presidential nomination for 10 solid months, saw his base of support completely collapse during the week. This was inevitable, as voters who just recently began paying attention to the Democrat race began to realize that Biden is clearly impaired and not in any way capable of holding the highest office in the land. The result was a poor, 4th-place finish in Iowa, where he barely was able to finish ahead 0f Amy Klobuchar. Biden’s polling numbers have nose-dived not only in New Hampshire, but also in Nevada and South Carolina, setting up the possibility that he will not win a single contest before heading into Super Tuesday.

The Democrat Party implodes in Iowa. – As if Pelosi’s antics weren’t damaging enough, the effort by the DNC to rig the results of the Iowa caucuses against The Commie, Bernie Sanders, resulted in such a mass of confusion and outright buffoonery that even the New York Times felt obligated to report on it. It is a muck-up of epic proportions from which the Party may never be able to recover.

As I write this today, six days after the voting, party officials have still been unable to release final results, and “irregularities” in which the published results do not match the results tabulated by the individual caucus managers have been identified in 95 of the state’s 99 counties. Unsurprisingly, virtually all of those “irregularities” work against The Commie and in favor of Preacher Pete Buttigieg, who the Party has tried to portray as the Caucus “winner.”

This is electoral larceny on an unprecedentedly grand scale.

Incredible jobs numbers. – On Wednesday, the ADP report on private sector jobs added for January came in at 291,000, almost doubling the consensus predictions by “experts” of 160,000. On Friday, the Labor Department non-farms jobs report for the month came in at 225,000, blasting through the “experts” forecast of 165,000. Despite a whopping 183,000 previously-discouraged workers coming back into the labor force during January, the rate of unemployment for all classes of Americans remained at record or near-record lows.

Cleaning House. – To cap off the most amazing week of non-stop WINNING of this or perhaps any presidency, the Administration began the process of cleaning house of coup plotters. Both of the Vindman twins serving as spies and leakers at the NSC were escorted from the White House premises late Friday afternoon, and a few hours later, smarmy Ambassador to the EU Gordon Sondland was relieved of his official duties. Much, much more cleaning house remains to be done, but these dismissals were a very fine way to start.

By week’s end, the Democrats were reeling from their week of horrific losing, obviously at a loss over where to head next. Their media supporters, meanwhile, were so panicked over what they were seeing that not a single Sunday morning fakenews program invited anyone from the White House to appear as a guest.

The Democrats no doubt will now cast about for another scam to try to run against the President, but the tactic has become so blatantly obvious to the vast majority of Americans that few will take seriously anything they and their corrupt media toadies drum up next. The Democrat Party, through its incessant dishonest machinations against the President over the last four years, has literally turned itself into the Boy who Cried Wolf. Not a good look for a political party with no policy agenda.

As for President Trump and his Administration, it’s hard to see what they could do to even come close to the level of WINNING seen in the past week.

Wait, how about this: The Department of Justice is still sitting on unacted-upon criminal referrals targeting Peter Strzok, Andrew McCabe and James Comey. Acting on some or all of those sure would make for a fun week.

How about it, Attorney General Barr?

That is all.

Ralph Northam’s Despicable Effort to Create Another Charlottesville

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

WINNING. Sooooooo much WINNING. – Here’s what is funny about this: I’ve actually had complaints this week that I’ve been focusing too much on all the WINNING President Trump is bringing to our country. So, some people who claim to be fans of President Trump actually are getting tired of all this WINNING. Once again, Trump was right when he said “We will WIN so much, you’ll get tired of all the WINNING.”  You can’t make this stuff up.

One more time, every major U.S. stock market index closed at record high levels as investors express their enthusiasm over the President’s Phase I Trade Agreement with China and congress’s final passage of the USMCA. Despite all the false criticism emanating from the corrupt national news media, the markets understand how these trade deals with America’s three largest trading partners will positively impact this country’s economy for years to come.

So, suck it, all you fake, corrupt journalists and contributors at CNN, MSNBC, the New York Times and the Washington Post. Your efforts, in concert with the Democrat Party, to talk this country into an economic recession that began last summer have, like everything else you have tried to harm this President and what he is accomplishing for America, miserably failed. That could not possibly happen to a nicer bunch of evil minions.

Meanwhile, out in the Commonwealth of Virginia, Governor Baby Killer Blackface KKK Ralph Northam thinks creating a mere recession is just small potatoes. – Northam, along with this Democrat majority in the state assembly, is apparently intent on planting the seeds for a second civil war. That appears to be the only rational interpretation of the moves and public statements Governor Northam and fellow Virginia Democrats have been making in recent weeks.

As the Democrats in the assembly advance a series of gun control bills , assembly members and  Northam himself have promised they will result in law enforcement going door to door if necessary to confiscate certain kinds of guns from ordinary citizens. Gun rights groups have very predictably responded by organizing a massive rally in support of the 2nd Amendment to take place in the state capital of Richmond this weekend. The rally will be held Monday as a part of the Virginia Civil Defense League’s (VCDL) annual lobby day.

Governor Northam has reacted harshly – again, very predictably – to the rally, declaring a state of emergency based on only the vaguest of pretenses.

Here’s the text of his declaration:

Credible intelligence gathered by Virginia’s law enforcement agencies indicates that tens of thousands of advocates plan to converge on Capitol Square for events culminating on January 20, 2020. Available information suggests that a substantial number of these demonstrators are expected to come from outside the Commonwealth, may be armed, and have as their purpose not peaceful assembly but violence, rioting, and insurrection.”

Have you ever seen so many weasel words crammed into just two sentences?

“Credible intelligence” and “available information” you say? What in the hell does that even mean? And “plan to converge on Capitol Square”? How did you know that? Why, could it be because the VCDL properly applied for a lawful permit to use that public space? You know, like a group of good, law-abiding American citizens, i.e., not Antifa, might do?

And what is a “substantial number” in your mind, Governor? Is it 1,000? 100? 10?

Democrats like Northam never complain when people come from out of state to join in liberal protest marches, or hell, even to vote illegally in their elections. Just so long as they vote Democrat, right? Right.

Clearly, Governor Blackface and his friends in the corrupt news media are attempting to set the narrative for Sunday’s rally as being the sequel to the 2017 Charlottesville fiasco, when a couple of dozen bad actors provided the pretense for the media to smear thousands attending an otherwise peaceful rally as being “white supremacists.” This is how every rally-goer on Sunday will also be portrayed if the media can find one clown wearing a confederate flag patch on his jacket or forming his fingers into what used to be the “ok” sign. So, expect that to happen.

Regardless of what really takes place in Richmond this weekend, Governor KKK will without any question at all attempt to spin it as a rationale to continue pushing for his gun control/confiscation legislation. But he and his fellow Democrats have a real, sticky problem in seeing this effort through to its logical conclusion.

That problem centers on the reality that Virginia is a mostly-rural state. Once you get out of the isolated population centers of Richmond, Arlington and Alexandria, the rest of Virginia is as red as red can be. The state’s 2016 election map looks like a miniature microcosm of the national map, with small islands of blue interspersed amidst a sea of red:

Trump Scrambles Open Race for Virginia Governor

Prior to 2009, Virginia actually was a fairly reliable state for Republicans. But that has all changed with eight years of America’s Biggest Mistake, Barack Obama, and the massive expansion of the D.C.-based federal bureaucracy he inflicted on the nation. Even with Obama’s rapid raising of federal salaries, real estate in the District of Columbia remained too expensive for most bureaucrats, so tens of thousands of them settled across the Potomac in Arlington and Alexandria.

Given that well over 90% of federal bureaucrats are Democrats by nature, that massive emigration of the bureaucracy into Virginia ended up shifting the state’s politics.

Very predictably, those red, rural counties have taken exception to the Democrats’ looming gun grab. At last count, 105 counties and cities in Virginia have now taken the step of declaring themselves second amendment sanctuaries, with local officials promising to defy any efforts by the state government to confiscate firearms within their jurisdictions.

Should Governor Northam and his Democrat minions end up enacting these gun control bills and follow them through to their logical conclusion, many Virginia gun owners will not go quietly, and the country could find itself in a real constitutional crisis. Unless the Democrats begin to moderate what they are doing, they might be sowing the seeds for a second civil war in this country.

Sadly, Governor Northam seems by his actions and words to be perfectly fine with, and maybe even intent on, doing exactly that.

That is all.

Donald Trump Just Keeps on WINNING for America and Americans

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

Tired of all this WINNING yet? – As the demented, depraved, despicable and disloyal House Democrats were advancing their impeachment scam to the Senate on Wednesday, President Donald J. Trump was doing what he does best:  WINNING for America and the American people.

About 30 minutes after San Fran Nan and her House manager clownshow pep squad held their morning press conference, President Trump hosted a set of Chinese and U.S. dignitaries at the White House signing ceremony for the Phase I trade agreement between the two countries:

Image may contain: 3 people, suit

As you can see, the Dow leapt up over the 29,000 level as the President was speaking, and it remained there for the rest of the day, closing at an all-time high. All other major U.S. stock indexes finished the day at record levels.

The WINNING is only going to get better today, since as I’m typing this up, Iowa Senator Joni Ernst is telling Maria Bartiromo that the Senate will pass the massive US/Mexico/Canada Agreement (USMCA) at 11:00 ET this morning. The White House plans to hold a presidential signing ceremony for that major deal early next week, when the WINNING will continue.

Meanwhile, while all that WINNING was taking place, San Fran Nan held a presser at which she announced her House Manager Clownshow Pep Squad, pictured below.

Image may contain: 8 people

There they are in all their carnival midway glory, folks. All that’s missing is the bearded lady and wild man of Borneo, although Jabba the Nadler is a great stand-in for him.

In introducing her latest scam clown show cast, Pelosi promised that they would conduct themselves in a “solemn and prayerful” manner. She then held a celebratory signing ceremony, complete with gold-plated signing pens on which the word “United” was misspelled.

I kid you not, the Democrats are so damn divisive that they cannot even spell the word “United.”

Pelosi’s behavior during this celebration was so bizarre and at odds with her public statements that even people at CNN were disturbed by it all:

Once the signing party was completed and the misspelled pens had been passed out to the assembled circus clowns, Pelosi released the House Managers to hand-carry the articles of impeachment over to the Senate, in another traditional, solemn and prayerful exercise. Here is a shot of the Managers heading over to the Senate:

In other official Democrat Party news, one of their former leading contenders for the 2020 nomination – at least according to all the folks at CNN and MSNBC who put him on-air about 200 times – the Creepy Porn Lawyer, Michael Avenatti, was arrested yet again out in Los Angeles. To make things even better, this time he was arrested while he was at a license revocation hearing before the California State Bar!

As reported by The Federalist:

A new filing in the case United States v. Avenatti shows an arrest warrant has been issued for former Stormy Daniels lawyer Michael Avenatti. An image shows Avenatti being led out of the court by federal agents while he attended a hearing at the State Bar of California in Los Angeles.

Avenatti was at the State Bar of California for a disciplinary hearing for allegedly doctoring a document used to scam a client out of $840,000. Avenatti was allegedly funneling this money from his client for his personal use.

Here he is, being taken away by agents for booking:

Image

That, folks, is WINNING, BIGLY.

But wait, there’s even more WINNING! – Following Tuesday evening’s “debate” on CNN, Fauxcahontas angrily refused to shake the offered hand of The Commie after the two had had a tense back and forth over whether or not he had told her during a private meeting last year that he thought she should not run because it wasn’t possible for a woman to win the presidency.

Last night, CNN released a clip of that confrontation, complete with audio and subtitles:

Full Transcript:

Fauxcahontas: I think you called me a liar on national TV.

Commie: What?

Fauxcahontas: I think you called me a liar on national TV.

Commie: Let’s not do it right now. You want to have that discussion, we’ll have that discussion.

Fauxcahontas: Anytime. You called me a liar. You told me…

Sanders: All right. Let’s not do it now…

Steyer: I don’t want to get in the middle of it…I just want to say hi, Bernie. [What a weasel this guy is.]

Sanders: Yeah, good. Ok.

[End]

First of all, who hasn’t called Elizabeth Fake Indian Warren a damn liar? This woman has publicly and shamelessly lied about every single aspect of her life, and has been caught [fake] red-handed doing it time after time after time. In this contrived controversy, if you have to take someone’s word for it, the odds really favor the Commie.

But hey, these are Democrats we’re talking about here, people who view every second of their pathetic lives through the lens of identity politics. So, let them just fight it out, because every moment Democrats spend tearing themselves apart is a moment of WINNING for America.

That is all.

Trump’s Unprecedented Economic Success – The Story the Corrupt Media Won’t Tell

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

WINNING. Sooooo much WINNING.  – Guess what? Every major U.S. stock index rose yet again on Thursday as the wealth of positive economic news just kept rolling in. The NASDAQ saw it 11th consecutive record high close, and the Dow and S&P 500 also closed at new all-time high levels.

On the passage of President Trump’s tax cuts two years ago almost to the day, we here at the Campaign Update told you that those tax cuts, targeted as they are towards stimulating capital investment and economic growth, would quickly create a situation in which the economy’s largest problem would become a literal shortage of workers qualified to fill all the good-paying jobs that would be available. There is little doubt that we have now reached that happy point.

We now have record low unemployment levels for pretty much every category of American: Record low black unemployment; record low Hispanic unemployment; record low veteran unemployment; record low Asian unemployment; and a record high number of men and women gainfully employed in the U.S. economy. According to a recent report issued by the White House:

The surge in labor demand has resulted in 7 million job openings, which outnumber job seekers by more than 1 million. Before President Trump took office, there had never been more recorded job openings than unemployed workers.

Think about that. Never before, not even during the Reagan recovery, has the U.S. economy been in a situation in which it had created more open jobs than there were unemployed workers to fill them. That is a stunning achievement, and if a Democrat were president while such an outcome had been achieved it would be the only story being aired anywhere, anytime on cable news.

But because we are in the age of Trump, an age when our utterly corrupt fake news media studiously ignores reporting any news that reflects positively on the U.S. President, the White House must tell the story itself. This morning, to ensure our readers do get to see it, we are reprinting that December 16 report here.

Enjoy!

DRIVING A RECORD-SETTING ECONOMY: The booming economy and strong labor market allow Americans of all backgrounds to find work and succeed.

  • The current labor market revival is not a continuation of past trends, but instead a direct result of President Trump’s pro-growth policies.
  • Since President Trump was elected, more than 7 million jobs have been added to our economy – surpassing the Congressional Budget Office’s predictions by 5 million jobs.
  • This year, the unemployment rate has fallen to 3.5%, its lowest level in 50 years.
    • Unemployment for African Americans, Hispanic Americans, Asian Americans, veterans, individuals with disabilities, and those without a high school diploma have all reached record lows under President Trump.
  • The President’s policies are bringing people off the sidelines and into the labor force.
    • The prime age labor force has grown by 2.1 million under President Trump.
  • The surge in labor demand has resulted in 7 million job openings, which outnumber job seekers by more than 1 million.
    • Before President Trump took office, there had never been more recorded job openings than unemployed workers.
LOWERING INEQUALITY: President Trump’s policies are helping forgotten Americans across the country prosper, driving down income inequality.
  • Annual nominal wages grew by 3 percent in 2019 for the first time in a decade.
    • Nominal wage growth has now been at or above 3 percent for 16 straight months.
  • Wage growth for many previously forgotten groups is now higher than wage growth for more advantaged groups.
    • This is the case for lower-income workers compared to higher-income workers, workers compared to managers, and African Americans compared to white Americans.
    • These income gains mark a fundamental change compared to before President Trump’s inauguration, contributing to reduced income inequality.
  • When measured as the share of income earned by the top 20 percent, income inequality fell in 2018 by the largest amount in over a decade.
    • The Gini coefficient, an overall measure of inequality in the population, also fell in 2018.
LIFTING UP AMERICANS: The booming economy is lifting millions of Americans out of poverty and providing all people with the opportunity for a brighter future.
  • In 2018 alone, nearly 1.4 million Americans were lifted out of poverty.
    • The poverty rates for African Americans and Hispanic Americans reached historic lows in 2018.
    • Over 600,000 children being raised by single mothers were lifted out of poverty in 2018.
  • The number of people claiming unemployment insurance as a share of the population is the lowest on record.
  • Nearly 7 million fewer people are on food stamps than at the time of the 2016 election.
  • 380,000 fewer people are on Social Security Disability insurance than before the 2016 election.
  • Americans in economically-distressed communities are benefiting from increased investment thanks to the Opportunity Zones included in President Trump’s historic tax reform.

Here’s Why Pelosi is Making Impeachment Permanent

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

Tired of all this WINNING yet? Not a chance.  – All major U.S. market indexes once again attained all-time record high closes on Monday. It was the ninth straight record trading day on the NASDAQ, its longest such streak since 1998. As we approach the end of 2019, the Trump economy has now taken all of the Democrat/media recession promoters, folded them collectively up into a massive wad of smelly BS, and tossed them into the garbage dump of history. It’s a wonderful thing for America.

Tired of all this WINNING yet? Part II. – The stock markets weren’t the only area in which Americans were WINNING bigly on Monday. The leaders in China finally signaled capitulation to the reality of President Trump holding all the real leverage in the trade negotiations between the worlds two largest economies yesterday, announcing a massive reduction in tariffs on U.S. imports into their country:

China will lower tariffs on products ranging from frozen pork and avocado to some types of semiconductors next year as Beijing looks to boost imports amid a slowing economy and a trade war with the United States.

Next year, China will implement temporary import tariffs, which are lower than the most-favored-nation tariffs, on more than 850 products, the finance ministry said on Monday. By comparison, 706 products were taxed at temporary rates in 2019.

The tariff changes were made to “increase imports of products facing a relative domestic shortage, or foreign speciality goods for everyday consumption,” the ministry said in a statement on its website.

This, friends, is WINNING, and it is only going to get better in 2020. Heck, it will likely only get better before 2019 is over – after all, we have a whole week to go.

Why is Pelosi making impeachment a permanent process? – After I posted yesterday afternoon’s update detailing the Democrats’ latest move to make impeaching President Donald Trump a permanent feature of their rule in the House of Representatives, several readers sent messages asking why she and Schiff and Nadler would do this? What purpose does it serve?

Well, there are several reason why San Fran Nan’s traveling congressional freak show is going down this road – let’s lay them out in bullet point form:

  • First and foremost, the Democrats have nothing else. This is all they got, and they know it. They have no real policy agenda heading into the 2020 elections other than promoting the Green New Scam and Venezuela-style socialism, and those are unpopular policy proposals that they must pursue under the radar.
  • Second, because they can. There is no honest media establishment working to inform the American people of the truly subversive nature of what they are doing, and thus, no negative consequences politically from going down this despicable road.
  • Third, because they can never admit that the 2016 presidential election was legitimate. Think about it: They and their corrupt media toadies have spent three entire years now promoting first the Trump/Russia myth and then the Trump/Ukraine myth in their frenzied effort to overturn the results of that election. If they were to stop now, it would be an admission that the entire pretense that enabled them to attain their House majority in the 2018 election was a false one.
  • Fourth, because pursuing permanent impeachment supports their new narrative in which they are already making the case that the 2020 presidential election will be illegitimate. Having a President win re-election while “under investigation” is key to that narrative.
  • Fifth, because they know that Ruth Bader Ginsburg is in terrible health, making it very likely there will be an opening on the Supreme Court at some point next year. Making impeachment permanent enables them to argue that President Trump can’t fill that seat while he’s under “suspicion.”

I suspect it is possible that Ginsburg, who is 85 and has survived several bouts with lung and pancreatic cancer, or liberal justice Stephen Breyer, who is 81, may have even informed Pelosi and others that she or he plans to retire at the end of the current Supreme Court session, which would help to explain the urgency behind the Democrats’ efforts to keep impeachment alive.

Now, if you are thinking that none of the reasons listed above are legitimate reasons for the constitutional abomination Pelosi is perpetrating on our society, I agree. But we have to remember that everything Pelosi, Schumer or any Democrat leader does has a single goal in mind: The acquisition and maintenance of political power. That’s it.

Considerations such as what might be best for the country never enters the minds of these demented and depraved people. Once you realize that reality and accept it, everything they do makes perfect, if evil, sense.

That is all.

The FISA Court Puts the FBI on a Kabuki Theater Action Plan

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

WINNING, soooooo much WINNING. It truly never gets old. – Once again, every stock market index – the S&P 500, the NASDAQ and the Dow Jones Industrial average – closed at record high levels on Tuesday. That’s the third straight day for the Dow and the fourth straight for the S&P and NASDAQ. The Trump economy is booming along so strongly now that the recession promoters at the Washington Post gave up the ghost over the weekend and sadly admitted that we are not headed into an economic contraction anytime soon.

Also in the realm of WINNING, the Democrats in the House, cowed over the growing public pushback over their impeachment sham, passed a spending bill that includes $1.4 billion in funding for the border wall and does not include restrictions on the President’s ability to move funds from Defense and other departments to keep the wall’s building moving ahead. That, friends, is WINNING on a grand scale.

Another WINNING feature of this particular budget bill is what is not in it: Proposed language that would have provided billions in de facto bailout money for Tesla and General Motors in the form of expanded subsidies for their overpriced Electric Vehicle manufacturing. Those two companies had already used up their allotment of subsidies under the program, and will now be forced to actually compete with Ford, Nissan, Toyota and other EV sellers on equal footing.  Imagine that.

All in all, it was a great day for America because President Trump was WINNING and the Democrats, their corporate clients and their media toadies were LOSING. Funny how that works.

Then there was the not-so-good stuff, typified by the joke of a “public order” issued by the chief judge of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court [FISC], Rosemary M. Collyer.

Collyer, who it must be assumed just awoke from a two-year slumber, issued what the corrupt news media touted as a “stern rebuke” of the FBI for all of its lying to the FISC detailed in the recently-release report by DOJ IG Michael Horowitz. As reported by Fox News:

“The FBI’s handling of the Carter Page applications, as portrayed in the [Office of Inspector General] report, was antithetical to the heightened duty of candor described above,” Collyer wrote in her four-page order. “The frequency with which representations made by FBI personnel turned out to be unsupported or contradicted by information in their possession, and with which they withheld information detrimental to their case, calls into question whether information contained in other FBI applications is reliable.”

Oh, golly, oh, goodness, how will FBI Director Christopher Wray survive such strongly-worded sentences and phrases? Well, as the FBI itself told America in its response to the Judge’s letter, he will do what he does best: Respond to it with standard bureaucratic BS:

“As [FBI Director Christopher Wray] has stated, the inspector general’s report describes conduct by certain FBI employees that is unacceptable and unrepresentative of the FBI as an institution,” the bureau responded in a statement Tuesday night. “The director has ordered more than 40 corrective steps to address the report’s recommendations, including some improvements beyond those recommended by the IG.”

Many of you dear readers no doubt worked or still work in the corporate world as I did for many years. What Judge Collyer did yesterday was basically what corporate management and HR do with badly-performing employees: She put the FBI on an Action Plan. She slapped the dumpster fire law enforcement agency on its collective wrist and demanded that it produce a detailed plan for how it is going to improve performance in the future. And if it doesn’t improve, why, there might, maybe, be – gasp! – consequences.

Folks, Christopher Wray eats this kind of crap up. The man is nothing but your classic federal do-nothing bureaucrat, a useless placeholder whose only real skill is leveraging federal regulations and employment laws to his advantage.

As the FBI’s statement notes, he is so skilled at this game that he anticipated Collyer’s pathetic letter in advance and had already publicly announced his response to her action plan demand. Thus, he covered his butt before she covered hers.

This is nothing more than classic DC Swamp Kabuki Theater. Think about it: Everything finally, at long last detailed in Horowitz’s report has been out there in the public domain for more than two years now. Much of it had been detailed over and over again here at the Campaign Update.

Yet, in all that time, and despite all of the FBI’s mendacity in seeking its multiple FISA warrants to spy on members of the Trump Campaign, Trump Transition Team and Trump Administration having long been public information, neither Collyer nor any other FISC judge ever uttered a peep of public protest. It was only after the Horowitz Report had finally been issued that she suddenly decided to issue her “rebuke” of the FBI and its myriad bad actors.

In a just world, every existing FISA warrant would be rescinded pending further review, and a special prosecutor would be appointed to investigate every other warrant the FBI sought from the Court during James Comey’s time as FBI Director. But this is not a just world, so Collyer’s meaningless action plan, which was so predicrable that Wray anticipated and responded to it in advance, will be the last act we see in this particular Kabuki performance.

Everybody’s butt is now covered, every bureaucrat is now protected, and the myriad Americans whose civil rights have been violated by the raging dumpster fire that is the FBI will have no justice delivered.

That is an outrage.

That is all.

On This Thanksgiving, Be Thankful For All Of This WINNING

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

Given that today’s Thanksgiving, I figured it would be a good time to lecture you all on all the many things I am thankful for today. – Not that you needed it – everybody else is doing the same thing, after all, including the doofuses who host the morning news show on our local TV stations here in the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex. They are weird people, but I’m thankful for them because they do provide periodic comic relief. Like when they try to predict the weather here in North Texas more than 4-5 hours in advance. It’s honestly hilarious.

Anyway, here are a bunch of things I am thankful for on this cold and rainy Thanksgiving morning:

Family – Yeah, I know, this is obligatory, right? But I truly do have a wonderful family, filled with brothers and sisters and kids and grandkids and the most wonderful, patient, kind and understanding wife who ever lived. I even have in-laws who I really love, one of whom kept me up too late drinking really good wine last night. So, I blame my hangover on family. And what good is family without hangovers?

The Trump Economy – Every major stock market index closed at a record high level on Wednesday, the 5th of the last 8 trading days this has happened.

Adam Schiff – Seriously, what would life be like without ol’ Bug-eyes? Talk about comic relief, this guy’s better than every sitcom on television, other than The Neighborhood, which I watch religiously. Cedric the Entertainer cracks me up, and that guy who plays Dave is epic. So I’m thankful for them, too.

But seriously, Adam Schiff is a better Bond villain than any of the real Bond villains. Everything this guy does repulses anyone with functioning synapses in their cranial cavities. He is the perfect poster child for today’s Democrat Party: Corrupt, inept, corrupt, stupid, corrupt, evil and corrupt. What more could you ask for?

Nancy Pelosi’s Dentures – Have you ever seen a more rebellious mouth appliance than those things? Really and truly, this woman is worth about $200 million, and she can’t afford a set of fake teeth that won’t come loose and try to jump out of her mouth every time she holds a press conference? I salute you, Nancy Pelosi’s Dentures! You are awesome!

America’s oil and gas industry – Think about it: Where would you be today without America’s oil and gas industry? Let me answer that question for you:  You’d be sitting in a cold, damp home with no way to cook your food, no lights, no television, no cell phone, no toothpaste, no makeup for the women-folk, no bottled water, no refrigerated food, maybe no food at all given that most plant fertilizers are manufactured using natural gas (did you know that?), and no way to get anywhere else unless you owned a horse and buggy.

In short, without America’s magnificent, glorious oil and natural gas industry you would be living a 19th century existence filled with deprivation and hardship. So quit bitching about the price for regular unleaded anytime it goes up 2 cents. Be thankful you have the blessing of being able to pay for this miracle that made modern society possible.

The Dallas Cowboys and Texas Longhorns – I’m thankful to my favorite pro and college football teams for demonstrating earlier than usual that they are pitiful mediocrities who are going nowhere yet again, because it frees up all sorts of time for me to focus on other, more important things. Those rose bushes really needed trimming. That’s far preferable to the Dodgers, my favorite baseball team, who took me all the way into the playoffs before folding up like a cheap suit in the NLDS this season. Talk about a time sink.

WINNING. So much WINNING. – Yes, even though all of my sports obsessions are miserable losers, I am so thankful this Thanksgiving for President Donald John Trump and all the incessant WINNING he brings to all of our lives, whether we appreciate it or not.

In addition to the roaring economy and resultant booming stock market he has delivered, this is a President with an actual sense of humor. The best part of that sense of humor is that he employs it each and every day in efforts to infuriate leftist nitwits like Adam Schiff and San Fran Nan and their corrupt toadies in our fake news media. Like yesterday, when he tweeted out that meme with his face superimposed over Rocky’s body, knowing that it would throw every leftist/media toady in the country into a snit fit, and sure enough, that’s exactly what happened.

I keep thinking that all these leftist nitwits will at some point figure out that President Trump is the greatest Twitter troller of all-time, but no. They’re just not capable. They can’t help themselves, and I’m thankful for that, too.

Why? Because it’s WINNING, and I love all this WINNING.

And turkey, and dressing, and sweet potatoes and broccoli and rice casserole and pecan pie. I’m thankful for those things, too. And I’m fixing to go eat all that stuff.

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving, folks. I’m thankful for all of you, too.

That is all.

March 25 Was the BEST MONDAY EVER for Trump and his Supporters

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

Why did Monday ever have to end?  – Monday must have felt like a birthday, Christmas and Festivus all rolled up into one for President Donald Trump and the White House staff, as the good news started early in the morning and continued to pour in all day long.

Throughout the day, of course, they all got to watch as a parade of news-faking cretins flittered across their TV screens, vainly trying to concoct a rationalization for why they have been lying to their viewers and fans for more than two years as they promoted the Democrats’ “Russia Collusion” fantasy play. From Morning Joe and Mika and Donny Deutsch, to the despicable hack Carl Bernstein, to the contemptible Andrew Napolitano, to the seditious – no, make that treasonous – John Brennan, to the terminally unfunny and odious Stephen Colbert, with dozens of other circus clowns and cranks sprinkled liberally in between, the cascade of disgraced nitwits, dupes and just plain old liars was glorious.

As if that weren’t cause enough for joy in Trump Land, shortly after noon came the news that the Creepy Porn Lawyer had been indicted and arrested on charges of extortion and mail fraud. Yes, friends, the guy who everyone at MSNBC and CNN spent half of 2018 touting as a legitimate contender for the Democrats’ presidential nomination in 2020 due solely to the fact that he represented a porn star has been caught red-handed, as the Justice Department released damning telephone transcripts that show him explicitly blackmailing Nike for $25 million. Thus, a major tormentor of the President appears likely to soon be headed for the pokey.

But it got even better. It turns out that the Creepy Porn Lawyer’s alleged partner in this extortion plot is none other than attorney and – until yesterday – paid CNN “legal analyst” Mark Geragos. Yes, that Mark Geragos, the selfsame Mark Geragos whose most prominent current client happens to be …wait for it…oh, you have to wait for this one…JUSSIE SMOLLETT!!!!!

Yes, friends and neighbors, that would be the very same actor Jussie Smollett who is currently facing prison time of his own for creating an outrageous hoax in an effort to smear the President and everyone who supports him. That Jussie Smollett.

I swear I do not make this stuff up. The greatest, most imaginative fiction writer in world history could not in a million years make this stuff up.

But things just kept getting better and better all day long, as a seemingly endless stream of positive news stories for the President and his 2020 re-election ambitions came across the wire.  Here are some examples:

  • In Texas, all House Democrats boycotted a committee hearing on a bill that would …wait for it…OUTLAW INFATICIDE. Yeah, that’s not gonna play well with Texas voters next year.
  • Two-term New Mexico Senator Tom Udall announced he would not stand for re-election in 2020, opening up the seat for a strong GOP challenge.
  • Trump appeals court nominee Bridget Bade received a favorable cloture vote in the senate, paving the way for her to become the President’s 37th addition to the federal appellate courts, an all-time record for a first term president.
  • Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell announced the scheduling of a Senate vote on Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s hair-brained, economy-destroying “Green New Deal”, which Democrats had been desperate to avoid since it will force them to go on-record.
  • Education Secretary Betsy DeVoss announced that DOE has opened investigations into eight universities tied to the still-unfolding college admissions and bribery scandal.
  • While the Democrat Party remains mired in a slipperly-slope towards rank anti-Semitism, President Trump held a White House ceremony with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in which he formally recognized the Golan Heights as part of Israel.
  • To cap the day off, the Pentagon announced that it has formally authorized the transfer $1 billion to kick-start the building of the southern border wall.

It was, for this President and his supporters, the Best Monday Ever.

Let’s hope today is the Best Tuesday Ever. Might as well start a new trend.

That is all.

Donald Trump Just Keeps on Winning for America

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Ok, well, he IS the Boss. – Bruce Springsteen says he doesn’t “see anyone out there at the moment… the man who can beat Trump, or the woman who can beat Trump.” For some reason, the UK Daily Mail thought it was important for us all to know that, so there you go.

Tired of all this Winning yet? – President Donald Trump and Chinese President Xi Jinping agreed during the G-20 Summit over the weekend to a 90-day pause in the ongoing trade war between the two nations. While leftists in and out of our fake news media are poo-pooing the deal as just a return to the status quo prior to President Trump’s implementation of new tariffs, that is not the case at all.

The U.S. side of the deal apparently consists of agreeing to not increase U.S. tariffs on hundreds of billions of Chinese goods for the 90-day period, as Trump had threatened to do on January 1. In return, China agrees to rescind its tariffs on imports of U.S. automobiles, roll back its 40% tariff rates on most U.S. goods to lower levels, agreed to purchase an as-yet unspecified amount of U.S. goods to reduce the trade deficit, and – perhaps most importantly – to “stiffen penalties on sales of the powerful opioid fentanyl into the U.S., a step the White House press secretary described as ‘a wonderful humanitarian gesture.'”

Leftists might not like it, but the markets obviously do: Dow futures are up bigly as I write this Update this morning.  #WINNING.

Speaking of winning… – City officials in Tijuana, Mexico acted to move the estimated 6,000 “migrants” out of the sports facility they had occupied for the last few weeks due to the horrid unsanitary conditions they had created there. In a move that will make it harder for the activists among the crowd to mount further assaults on the border crossings there, city officials moved the “migrants” to an abandoned concert venue more than 10 miles further away from the border.

Griff Jenkins at Fox News – and basically no one else in our fake news media – reported last Friday that fully 1/3rd of the “migrants” were being treated for health issues, including head lice, “tuberculosis, four cases of HIV/AIDS and four separate cases of chickenpox,” according to local health authorities. With the unsanitary conditions growing worse by the day, Mexican officials also feared an outbreak of Hepatitis could take place unless the crowd was moved.

In another related turn of events, newly-inaugurated Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador (AMLO), in one of his first acts in office, “signed an agreement with his counterparts from three Central American countries to establish a development plan to stem the flow of migrants seeking asylum in the U.S.” This compact was entered into at the urging of the Trump Administration.

Here’s why this is important, even if the human misery among these poor people is hard to watch: The move 10 miles further from the border will no doubt encourage more of them to either return home or accept the generous offer of asylum the Mexican government has been offering them for more than a month now. This “caravan” once numbered more than 10,000, so many already have done so, as Mexican officials confirmed early last week.

The other key factor is that, as it becomes clear that the United States of America is not going to allow these “caravans” to just walk right into our country and sign up for welfare benefits, it will become increasingly difficult for the leftist activists forming and funding them to find people in Honduras and other Central American nations willing to participate. The new willingness of the Mexican government to cooperate with U.S. efforts to halt this tide is a crucial development in all of this.

You will never see anyone at CNN, the New York Times, the Washington Post or any of the three dying broadcast networks admit this, but these latest developments demonstrate how extraordinarily effective the Trump Administration’s response to this “migrant caravan” issue has been.

It is such a joy to have a President who just goes to work every day and finds ways to get things done for the American people rather than cowering in fear at the prospect of getting a little bad press. To get to this point on this “caravan” issue, President Trump has had to overcome decades of horrible immigration policy decisions, the cacophony of inaccurate and outright fake reporting coming from the U.S. and international news media, ongoing resistance from some within his own Administration and a seemingly unending series of laughably unconstitutional decisions issued by an array of Obama-appointed federal judges.

Yet still he not only perseveres, but finds ways to prevail. That is #WINNING. Bigly.

 

Paris Burning Watch:

By the way, just so everyone understands, the reason why French Child President Emanuel Macron is raising that nation’s already confiscatory gasoline tax to even higher levels is not, as some have reported, an attempt to improve the government’s budget situation. What it really is is a fool’s effort to meet his country’s emissions reduction goals which France – like every nation on earth other than the United States of America – pledged to meet as a part of the Paris Climate Accords.

France’s emissions have actually increased since Macron committed his country to that socialist wealth redistribution scam, which is an embarrassment to him and his government. But hey, he’s not alone – not one single, solitary signatory country to the Paris Accords has met its pledged goals. Indeed, the country that has cut its emissions more than any nation on earth since that deal was signed is…wait for it…The United States of America.

Some of you probably tire of seeing me make this point, but it’s a key point to make:  This is just one more reason to be thrilled that Donald J. Trump won the 2016 presidential contest.  Because had the Pantsuit Princess prevailed that historic day, the streets of New York and Los Angeles would probably be burning along with those in Paris.

That is all.

A Week of Democrat/Media Hysteria Leaves Trump Unscathed

The Evening Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

As we come to the end of this week, a week during which the Democrat/Media Axis of Propaganda pulled out the biggest guns it has and fired them until their chambers were smoking, fake journalists and Democrat politicians must all be looking at one another and saying, “what in the hell did any of that do for us?”

It was a week literally filled with events that D.C. establishment wise men and women solemnly pronounced to be “the beginning of the end for Donald Trump.”  The first such event was the stunningly politicized funeral service last Saturday for John McCain, during which the likes of Joe Biden, George W. Bush and even McCain’s daughter Meghan took potshots at the President of the United States in what were supposed to be eulogies for the deceased Senator.  That was all just six days ago, and yet the 27 separate and distinct news cycles that have taken place since then make it all seem like a faded and distant memory.

The “beginning of the end for Donald Trump” the very next day, Sunday, September 2, was going to be the newest false narrative to explain why the deep state cabal within the Obama DOJ and FBI did all the illegal spying on the Trump campaign throughout 2016.  Invented out of whole cloth by the fakenewsers at the New York Times, this latest in a long line of fairy tale efforts to justify all the law-breaking hilariously blamed the entire thing on a failed effort by the Cabal to “turn” Russian Oligarch Oleg Deripaska.  Deripaska, of course, is the Russian source for most of the absurd fantasies that form the vast majority of the fake “Trump Dossier.”  Literally no one outside of the offices at the Times took this latest work of high fiction seriously, and it has been pretty much entirely forgotten as I type this a mere 5 days later.

That brings us to Monday, which was also Labor Day, when the “beginning of the end for Donald Trump” was the newest book from noted political fabulist Bob Woodward.  No way can Trump survive this one, said everyone at CNN/NBC/CBS/ABC/MSNBC/TheWashingtonPost/NewYorkTimes in unison!  But here we sit, just 3 days after the news of the book’s pending release broke, along with what were supposed to be damaging outtakes from it, and literally no one is talking about it.

Of course, the book’s biggest problem is what the biggest problem always is with any Woodward book:  Its “sources” are all anonymous, despite all of the author’s braggadocio about having a “first-hand source” for every allegation in the tome.  Given that Woodward has been caught making all manner of things up out of whole cloth in his previous works of political fiction, no one has any real obligation – or really and reason – to believe him now.

On Tuesday, the next edition of “the beginning of the end of Donald Trump” was the Senate Judiciary hearings over his nominee to the Supreme Court, Brett Kavanaugh.  Democrats and their media agents began the hearings Tuesday morning with anti-Trump guns a-blazing, carefully-scripted joint talking points and a hearing room filled with paid protesters.  Unsurprisingly, the disgraceful spectacle put on by the gang of Democrat/media thugs had the effect of turning off a huge number of Americans, and by mid-day on Wednesday, even some of the Democrat committee members had grown visibly nervous about it all.

Another dud.

On Wednesday, the fakenewsers at the New York Times were firing their fake news guns one more time, this time with a unprecedented anonymous op/ed from an alleged “senior Administration official” that detailed the existence of an embedded gang of anti-Trump functionaries who are working to undermine President Trump and his priorities.  In other words, the op/ed details the very existence of the Deep State in the pages of the freaking New York Times.  What a bunch of boobs these people are.  Thus, this particular “beginning of the end for Donald Trump” ended almost before it even began.

Yesterday, as detailed in this morning’s Campaign Update, goofy New Jersey Senator Cory “Jazz Hands” Booker decided he was gonna be the one to bring the “beginning of the end for Donald Trump” by staging a hysterical in-committee fight over the release of a set of Kavanaugh memos from 17 years ago that were supposed to prove the Judge is a racist.  But then we all read the memos and it turned out that they simply proved the opposite – that Judge Kavanaugh argued against the implementation of racial profiling in the wake of the 2001 9/11 attacks.  To make matters worse for Senator Jazz Hands, it also turned out that the memos had been approved for the release hours before his staged rant, a fact that he was actually well aware of.

Pop.

So here we sit at the end of this eventful week, and President Trump is not only still standing, he is thriving.  The President’s polling numbers actually rose as the week went along, and the biggest news on Friday was the August jobs numbers, which exceeded the expectations of all the “experts” yet again.

Oh, and Barack Obama made a big speech bashing Trump around noon on Friday, an event signaling his return to actively campaigning for Democrat congressional candidates.  This should make those candidates cower in terror given that their party went from a clear, unchallenged majority national party with super-majorities in both houses of congress when Obama came into office in 2009, to a clear, fading regional minority party holding not a single lever of political power when Obama cleared out of the White House on January 20, 2017.

What this week of Democrat/Media hysteria proved more than anything else is that they still have not figured out why Donald Trump won in 2016, and they still have no clue how to deal with him.

This is Donald Trump, #WINNING for America.

That is all.

Trump Dominates the G7, and the Globalist Community Can’t Stand it

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Godspeed, Charles Krauthammer – I read Dr. Charles Krauthammer’s letter on Friday with feelings fondness and sadness.  I’ve been a big fan of his writing – and later of his commentary on the Fox All-Star panel discussions – for at least 30 years now, so the news that he has only a few more weeks to live in this life is something I find to be profoundly sad, although I’ve had a feeling for months now that this news was coming.

Dr. Krauthammer won a Pulitzer Prize in 1985 for his commentaries, back when Pulitzer Prizes were awarded for actual, outstanding contributions to journalism and not for the sort of fake news hackery for which several CNN employees were awarded a few weeks ago.  Krauthammer won that Prize for good reason:  He was the best in the business, and remained so for many years afterwards.

I did not always agree with Krauthammer – he was a notorious #NeverTrump adherent throughout 2015 and 2016, after all – but I always looked forward to his viewpoint, because he was unerringly able to make his case through supportable logic and wit.  Other #NeverTrumpers whose names I won’t name could learn much from the Doctor in this regard.

Bret Baier and his occasional fill-in hosts have had a difficult time finding adequate replacements for Krauthammer, and the All-Star panel will never be the same without him.  Unlike many of the others who try unsuccessfully to fill the void, the Doctor was always able to disagree without resorting to hyperbole or disagreeable tactics.

Logic, facts and wit were all he ever needed.  He was one of a kind, and will be extremely missed.

He’s good enough, he’s sexy enough, and doggonit, the ladies like him. – Disgraced ex-Senator Al Franken received some defending he probably didn’t want, given the source, on Friday when disgraced ex-President and lifelong woman abuser Bill Clinton decided to weigh in on his case.  Somehow I’m thinking Franken would have preferred for ol’ Slick to just leave bad enough alone.  Just a guess.

Sacre’ bleu – he really means that ‘America first’ nonsense? – Oh, golly, our G7 “allies” are all verklempt at President Donald Trump over the import tariffs he has gone about implementing recently.  The President was singularly unperturbed about all the bitter scorn he was getting from the Angela Merkels and boy leaders of France and Canada, repeatedly expressing his certainty that those countries and others will ultimately come around and negotiate more equitable tariff deals rather than simply endure the reciprocal tariffs the U.S. has recently implemented

Most of these other countries – France, Germany, Great Britain, Italy and Japan – have enjoyed essentially being on the U.S. dole since the end of World War II.  The U.S. started what has become a 70+ year massive transfer of wealth to those nations with the implementation of the Marshall Plan in 1948, and has expanded on that initial $13 billion outlay ever since.

President after president and congress after congress have agreed to enact one-sided tariff policies that overwhelmingly advantage these other nations’ economies, adding Canada and Mexico to this wealth-and-jobs-draining mix in the mid-1990s with the NAFTA deal and adding China in more recently for good measure.  Our country has, for what were initially valid reasons, also relieved the Europeans and Canada from the burden of having to truly pay for their own military defense, spending hundreds of billions of dollars every year by having our own military personnel bases, missiles and other tools of war stationed on Eastern Europe and Japan even today, long after the Soviet Union disappeared and the economies of Germany and Japan recovered to world power stature.

To make matters even more absurd, Barack Obama and John Kerry chose to elevate this massive transfer of U.S. wealth to these other countries by committing our country to the heinous Paris Climate Accords, which were every bit the massive fraud on the American public that the Iran deal was.  These Accords had literally nothing to do with “climate” and everything to do with transferring trillions more U.S. dollars to the other signatory nations over the course of 15 years.

Want proof?  As of today, the United States is the only nation earth that is not a signatory to this fraudulent agreement, and is also the only nation on earth that has actually met and exceeded its emissions reductions “goals” under the deal.  Of course all those other countries are upset – they were all looking forward to getting their slice of that gigantic pie.

So it’s no surprise that Merkel and Macron and the Boy Prince of Canada are bitter:  They see a money spigot that has flowed from the United States of America for decades beginning to slow and have no idea how they’re going to tell their citizens that their economies are going to have to bear the cost of fielding real militaries and pay their own ways.  They’re like a couple of parents who have sponged off their rich uncle for decades suddenly having to face telling their 30 year-old kids they’re going to have to move out of the house because they’ve been cut off by Uncle Sam.

But here’s the big secret the fake news media in this country won’t tell you:  President Trump isn’t looking to cut all these spoiled children states off completely – he never promised that.  He’s simply looking for concessions from them that are substantial enough to give him the ability to keep his campaign promise of negotiating a “better deal for America.”

Canada is a great example:  The Canadian government has for many years shipped Chinese goods into the U.S. tariff-free under NAFTA due to a specific exemption in that treaty.  All the Boy Prince has to do is concede on that inherently unfair provision and the rest of NAFTA will remain largely intact.  The other countries in the G7 have their own inherently unfair tariff provisions that are unreasonable and should be conceded in order to avoid an outright trade war that benefits no one.

It isn’t 1948 anymore – if Italy’s economy is still a wreck, the United States has no responsibility for that.  If Germany has idiotically assumed the societal burden of importing more than a million Muslim refugees into its country, that was not America’s decision.  If England’s economy is struggling under the growing burdens of creeping fascim, America did not do that.  Sorry.

These other leaders dislike President Trump because, unlike most of his post-WWII predecessors, he refuses to smile and keep up the globalist lie.  He’s exposing them for the leeches they have long been, and won’t be giving in.  They all know this, they know the difficulties this new reality will cause them at home, and really have no idea how they’re going to deal with it all.

America First.  Finally, a U.S. President who means that when he says it.  Despite all the warnings Trump gave them throughout 2015 and 2016, these other national leaders never believed he would follow through.

Just another day of Trump putting America first.

That is all.

That “Blue Wave” May Be About to Become a “Red Flood”

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Irrelevant.  Americans today need to know what too much #WINNING does to them. – The National Centers for Environmental Information (there’s your all-time politically correct name) issued a report on Monday that says that watching too much bad news can be hazardous to one’s health.  So now you know why all of your Democrat friends are feeling so bad these days.

Where were these guys when Obama and Kerry were surrendering to Iran’s Mullahs? – Senate Democrats, feeling a sudden need to pretend to care about U.S. national security – something that historically only happens when a Republican president is about to achieve a major foreign policy victory for the country – issued their list of “demands” for what President Trump must include in any treaty with North Korea that will need to be ratified in the Senate.

These demands include the following:

  1. The deal must include the dismantlement and removal of all nuclear, chemical, and biological weapons from North Korea.
  2. The U.S. must ensure a “complete and verifiable denuclearization of North Korea,” removing all items related to nuclear-weapons production to prevent the country from reversing course.
  3. North Korea must end its ballistic-missile program as well.
  4. North Korea must comply with “anywhere, anytime” inspections to ensure it is not cheating on the deal, and sanctions must be immediately restored if it does cheat.
  5. The deal must be permanent.

If it strikes you that this list of “demands” reads like the list of goals the Trump Administration has been talking about in advance of the June 12 summit meeting in Singapore, that’s because they basically are one and the same.

Look, the Democrats are beginning to panic about their prospects in November’s mid-term elections.  Bereft of any bright policy ideas of their own which might attract new voters, they are now going about the process of attempting to co-opt conservative positions on issues, starting with the negotiations with North Korea.  This is what Bill Clinton taught them to do in 1996, and it’s what they’ve tried in every election cycle since that time.

Just a couple of months ago they and their fake news media agents were convinced that they were headed towards a grand victory, a “Blue Wave” that would see them win a majority in the U.S. House of Representatives, maybe the Senate as well, and make sweeping gains in state governorships and legislative houses all over the country.

But what had once been as much as an 18-point lead in congressional generic preference polling has now essentially disappeared as the Trump tax cuts have kicked the economy into high gear and good news for America continues to pour in from around the world.  Americans are becoming optimistic about the future again – one recent “right direction/wrong direction” shows the “right direction” answer coming in at its highest level in many years – and that is never a positive sign for the eternally depressed and negative Democrats, who rely on human misery and suffering to build voter support.

Think about it:  Have you seen a single Democrat politician or liberal talking head on your television talk about what a great thing it is that the Black and Hispanic rates of unemployment are at all-time lows?  No, of course you haven’t.  Democrats don’t want Blacks and Hispanics to have jobs – Democrats want Blacks and Hispanics to be dependent on the government because that’s the best way to ensure they will continue to vote in overwhelming majorities for Democrats.

So, Democrat “leaders” – such as they are – see all this good news taking place, they see Kanye West and other young African American leaders beginning to speak out about this orthodoxy they’ve held in place for half a century, and they have no idea at all what to do about it other than to resort back to the “triangulation” tactic they’ve employed in every election cycle for 22 years.  That’s what this Korea canard is all about, and you’re going to see more of that kind of co-option of GOP positions taking place in the coming weeks.

Because the reality is that, as we sit here today, the overarching national momentum in this election cycle is firmly behind the Republicans now, just as the overarching mood of the public had moved behind Donald Trump’s candidacy at this point in 2016.  That could change between now and November, but it would take some extraordinary paradigm-shifting event to make it happen.

When you see San Fran Nan advocating for additional tax cuts and Chuckie Schumer out in Chicago or Detroit or Baltimore talking about the need to get tough on crime, you’ll know for sure that the once-vaunted “Blue Wave” is about to turn into a “Red Flood.”  This is all very predictable.

About that Bill Clinton interview… – It occurs to me this morning that this NBC interview with Bill Clinton and an extremely uncomfortable James Patterson is a real teaching moment for Millennials.  Because this is the first time in their adult lives that they have seen the real Bill Clinton that we all had to deal with throughout the decade of the ’90s put on display for everyone to see.

There he was in all his sociopathic glory, shifting blame, denying responsibility, angry at being questioned, refusing to apologize and pretending that it is indeed he who is the actual victim here.  Bill’s all about the whole #MeToo movement, only in his mind it’s all about him, not the many women he abused throughout his adult life.  Poor, poor persecuted Bill.  Why, I kept waiting for him to toss out the whole “vast rightwing conspiracy” canard just for fun.

Here’s a hint for all you Millennials who were not really following politics while Bill was chasing 22 year-old interns around the Oval Office:  The most telling line of that entire interview is when he says, when asked about his Monica Lewinsky scandal, “Nobody believes I got out of that for free. I left the White House $16 million in debt.”

See, with the Clintons, it was always all about the money.  Bill and Hillary Clinton are America’s Greatest Grifters.  Everything they did, every office they sought was all about what was in it for them.  Their having debt at the end of Bill’s terms in office – fact-checkers show it wasn’t really even close to the number Billy boy tossed out – was in their minds justification for having Hillary turn her gig as Obama’s Secretary of State into a classic mob influence racket in which she was only too happy to sell U.S. foreign policy decisions to the highest bidders.

The Clintons – both of them – were always just in it for the money.  They were always looking for their next scam.  For Hillary, being elected President was going to be the most glorious scam of all.

Be happy she didn’t make it there.

Just another day in Panicking Democrats America.

That is all.

Twerking FBI Agents, Fired Korean Generals and Another Fake News Media-Invented Controversy. *Yawn*

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

That time when Bill Clinton accidentally stumbled into the truth. – Lifetime woman abuser (that has nothing to do with this story, but it should be repeated every time his name is mentioned) Bill Clinton told an interviewer over the weekend that – gasp! – the  news media gave favorable treatment to Barack Hussein Obama.  Go figure.  Who knew?

“They liked him. And they liked having the first African American president and he was a good president I think,” Clinton said about the media.  Uh-ooooohhhhhhh.  He went ‘there’, the place no one is ever supposed to go in telling the actual truth about the media’s treatment of Obama, and it naturally caused the extremely predictable outrage among social justice warriors on social media.  So tiresome.

Clinton also told the same interviewer that “I couldn’t be elected anything now ’cause I just don’t like embarrassing people,” after being asked what would happen if he ran in 2020.  Funny, he never had any problem at all embarrassing Paula Jones or Monica Lewinsky or Kathleen Willey or Juanita Broaddrick or Sandra James or Christy Zercher or…ok, enough.

Go away, Bill.  Just.  go.  away.

Hey, the FBI is just one grand dumpster fire at this point, huh? – An off-duty FBI agent was twerking on a Denver dance floor Saturday night.  What could possibly go wrong, you ask?

Well, let me tell you.  The guy – who has yet to be publicly identified so we call all shame him out of his job – took time away from twerking long enough to do an awkward back flip, during the course of which his service handgun very predictably fell from its holster onto the floor.  Not that big a deal, you say, right?  Could happen to anybody who feels the need to carry their favorite pistol with them when they go out for a night of shaking their booty.

But wait, this story gets worse.  Much, much worse.

This studly, twerking FBI agent with a bad case of Saturday Night Fever naturally panics (because apparently that’s what they train FBI agents to do these days) and scrambles to grab his gun.  In the process of doing that, he pulls the damn trigger and because he hadn’t bothered to set the damn safety, it goes off, hitting a bystander in the leg.

So, you’re a well-trained FBI agent who has just accidentally shot a bystander in the leg with your service gun while out for a night of imitating Mylie Cyrus – what do you do?  Well, this guy, no doubt implementing the exact training he personally learned from ex-FBI Director and current Teenage Drama Queen James Comey, calmly re-holstered his pistol and just walked away, leaving others to call for an ambulance and get the victim to the hospital.  After all, he’s probably too busy fixing some election there in Colorado.

This is your FBI in action, folks.  I swear I don’t make this stuff up.  Who could?

Chances for a Korea de-nuke deal just got better.  Much, much better. – Don’t expect the fake news media to put much emphasis on this very key story since it’s great news for America and thus terrible news for Democrats, but Reuters reports that, according to senior U.S. officials, the three top generals in the North Korean armed forces were replaced over the weekend.

So, why is this important?  Read this from the Japanese Yonhap News Agency, from a report released later on Sunday:

“The North appears to have brought in new figures amid the changes in inter-Korean relations and the situation on the Korean Peninsula as the previous officials lacked flexibility in thinking.”

The phrase “lacked flexibility in thinking” means the three guys who were replaced were opposed to the Crazy Little Fat Guy doing any deal with the U.S. and South Korea to de-nuclearize the Korean Peninsula.  These three firings come a few weeks after Army Gen. Kim Su-gil’s replacement of Kim Jong-gak as director of the General Political Bureau of the Korean People’s Army.  Taken all together, they most likely give Kim Jong Un the flexibility he needs to move forward on a deal because he no longer has to worry about a military coup taking place while he’s out of the country.  Funny how that works.

Democrats and their fake news agents will do their best to ignore this crucial development or spin it into something negative.  Of course, that’s been their strategy with the booming economy and employment numbers too, and we see how well that’s all working out for them.  It’s just a joy to watch them stumble and bumble around on this stuff.

Your fake news media in action! – Ask leading question, get answer you wanted to the leading question, spin into negative story about Trump.  Wash, rinse and repeat.  Whenever there’s a semi-slow news day, or a day in which the news for Trump just shows too much WINNING to report, this is the formula the fake news media uses to generate some new controversy.

So it went with Rudy Giuliani Sunday on ABC’s This Week With George Stephanopoulous, the former Clinton toady who pretends to be a news guy now.  When Georgie the Toady asked Giuliani if the President has the power to pardon himself, Rudy gave the correct answer:  Yes.  See, Rudy’s actually read the Constitution, which very clearly gives any sitting president the power to pardon anyone he wants.

Giuliani went on to say that President Trump has never and would never even consider doing any such thing, but the fake news media had its fake controversy for the day, a controversy that enabled all the fake reporters, fake editors and fake talking heads to change the subject from the booming economy and very encouraging developments on the North Korea front.

Thus, we ended up with an entire afternoon of endless speculation in the fake news media about whether a President who has committed no crimes and has not even been accused of committing any crimes and who his lawyer says has never even entertained the idea is actually planning to pardon himself.

You want to know why the formerly semi-noble profession of journalism is almost dead in this country?  This is just one of about 10,000 reasons, but it’s one of the biggest.

Just another day in Fake News Media America.

That is all.

Despite all the Media Hysterics over Porn Stars and Mueller, Trump Just Keeps on Winning

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Tired of all this Winning yet?  Part I – California Governor Jerry Brown announced late Wednesday that he will send 400 state National Guard troops to the border at the request of President Donald Trump.  Brown, always under pressure to pander to his state’s open borders crowd, claimed the troops would not be used for “enforcing federal immigration laws.”  Rather, he said their task would be to supplement state and federal efforts to “combat transnational crime.”

Note to Governor Brown:  Same thing.

Thank you for your service.

Tired of all this Winning yet?  Part II – Speaker Paul Ryan, under whose leadership federal spending has mushroomed at an unchecked, record pace, announced he would not seek re-election to his congressional seat this November.  Immediately upon his announcement, all the inside-the-Beltway pundits warned us in unison that we are sure going to miss Paul Ryan after he’s gone.

These, of course, are the very same inside-the-Beltway pundits who warned us in unison that we would sure miss John Boehner after he was gone.  All of you who have missed John Boehner for even a millisecond, stand up so you can be recognized.  Go ahead, stand.  No, seriously, get up off your sofa and…

Ok, that’s my point.  The Speaker is dead, long live the new Speaker.  I assure you, life will go on.

To his credit, the Speaker said that his decision was predicated on his desire to spend more time with his wife and young children, and he strongly implied that his days of seeking public office are over.  Let’s hope that’s true – he has a beautiful family.

Tired of all this Winning yet?  Part III – Under repeated questioning from Republican house members during his second day of testimony, Facebook android CEO Mark Zuckerberg blinked and claimed that, in the act of banning the completely un-threatening Diamond & Silk as somehow being a “threat to the Facebook community,” his evil minions had “made an enforcement error.”

He also claimed – falsely – that his evil minions had in fact already been in touch with the pro-Trump African American women to correct their error.  This was news to the pair, who are still telling Fox News this morning that they have not heard a peep out of anyone at Facebook.

“We have not been in communication with Facebook,” Hardaway said. “We have not been contacted. We haven’t spoken to anyone over the phone. So that was a lie.”

If this surprises you, you need to pay closer attention.

Tired of all this Winning yet?  Part IV –  Amid all the hysteria over the abusive Mueller investigation and false Zuckerberg testimony, the fake news media barely noticed the new executive order issued by President Trump on Tuesday.

Trust me, this is important.  This order reverses an Obama order that basically ended work requirements for welfare, and, more destructively to our society, allowed states to offer welfare and other social benefits to illegal aliens.

The Trump order requires states to comply with 8 U.S.C. 1611(a), which denies such benefits to non-qualifying illegal aliens, which will end up being almost all of them.  Here is the relevant passage:

“(b)  Within 90 days of the date of this order, the Secretaries shall each submit a report to the President, through the Director of the Office of Management and Budget and the Assistant to the President for Domestic Policy, that:

(i)    states how their respective agencies are complying with 8 U.S.C. 1611(a), which provides that an alien who is not a “qualified alien” as defined by 8 U.S.C. 1641 is, subject to certain statutorily defined exceptions, not eligible for any Federal public benefit as defined by 8 U.S.C. 1611(c);”

Once the illegals who entered the U.S. simply to get on the government dole start realizing that dole is going to stop, the self-deportations will begin.

And the fake news media, so focused as it is on porn stars and its dead Russia Collusion fantasy play, barely blinked.  Amazing.

So, why is the President just now taking this action, 15 months into office?  Mr. Trump was holding out hope for a long time that he could get the Democrats – and Speaker Ryan and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell – to work with him in good faith to reach an agreement on some form of comprehensive immigration reform. He has now realized that none of those congressional actors have ever had any intention of doing that, so is now taking every executive action he can take to improve the situation on his own.

He obviously reached that conclusion after congress presented him with the atrocity of an Omnibus budget bill in March, and has been taking various actions to protect the border since that time.  Tuesday’s executive memorandum was just the latest such action, and most likely won’t be the last.

Just another day in Trump just keeps on #Winning America.

That is all.

Democrats: the Gun-Banning Vampires of American Society

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Tired of all this Winning yet? – After going through what seems to have been a fairly standard 10% correction during early February, the stock markets have bounced back.  The Dow Jones Industrial average rose by 399 points on Monday, and has now regained more than half of the losses from earlier in the month.  Meanwhile, the economy is rolling along so strongly that many economists fear it will create more new jobs than the nation has qualified candidates to fill.  This is what is known in economics 101 class as a good problem to have.  #Winning.

Ryan Seacrest is getting his moment in the #MeToo sun, as his former personal stylist accuses him of all manner of Harvey Weinstein-ish behavior towards her.  Should make for a fun season on the revival of American Idol.  Hey, when do Joe Scarborough and Chris Cuomo get to have their #MeToo moments?

After spending ten days in the wake of the Florida school shootings laughably claiming they didn’t want to ban guns, the Democrat Party has done what it always does, which is demonstrate it was lying in unison.  On Monday, more than 150 Democrats in the U.S. House of Representatives introduced a bill that would ban vaguely-defined “assault weapons.”

If you’re thinking this is a repeat of Dianne Feinstein’s 1990s-era fiasco that sought to ban weapons based solely on what they look like, think again.  This bill would go much further, prohibiting “the ‘sale, transfer, production, and importation’ of semi-automatic rifles and pistols that can hold a detachable magazine, as well as semi-automatic rifles with a magazine that can hold more than 10 rounds. Additionally, the legislation bans the sale, transfer, production, and importation of semi-automatic shotguns with features such as a pistol grip or detachable stock, and ammunition feeding devices that can hold more than 10 rounds.”

If any of that comes as a surprise to you, then you have probably also been surprised over the last 26 years as the Democrat Party and its leftwing activist support base have worked as hard as human beings possibly could to erode your right to free exercise of religion, your freedom from self-incrimination, your freedom from unreasonable search and seizure, not to mention their all-out assault on your first amendment right to free speech in recent years.  But again, none of that should have surprised you, either.

It should not have to be repeated yet again, but here goes:  Anyone who adheres to leftist orthodoxy – as basically every Democrat in America today does – is a budding tyrant.  Their policy choices cannot be supported by facts or logic;  thus, the only way Democrats can gain power and maintain is by lying.  The lies can only be sustained if the public is ignorant, demoralized and helpless.  The way to keep the public ignorant, demoralized and helpless is to control what they say, do and think.  The way to control what they say, do and think is to rob Americans of their constitutional rights.

There.  Print that paragraph out and tape it to your refrigerator door for future reference.

Hey, I thought that whole “mansplaining” thing was supposed be bad. – Meanwhile, the Democrats with press passes at CNN took the whole gun confiscation argument into the realm of the absurd – which is CNN’s main core competency, after all – as law enforcement analyst Tom Fuentes suggested that 52% of the U.S. population (that would be all you women out there, or is it “wymyn?”) can’t own handguns because “they wear skirts” and stuff.  I swear I don’t make this stuff up.  Who could?

In other news, 17 year-old Parkland, Florida motor-mouth David Hogg lobbed out the king of all futile gestures, swearing that he won’t go back to school until the Florida state legislature passes a bill to ban guns.  Uh, ok.  You go, dude.

In all seriousness, does this kid not have parents?  Does he not have even a single responsible adult in his life who gives a damn about him?  Hogg is obviously being fed talking points – anyone who has done communications or public policy work for a living will recognize that reality about him in 3 seconds of listening to the things he recites from memory on CNN and MSNBC every day.  That means that he has gotten himself tied up with either the local Democrat Party or some group of leftist activists, which is essentially the same thing.

Some responsible adult who actually gives a damn about Mr. Hogg needs to sit him down and explain to him that these activists, and the leftwing activists who masquerade as “journalists” on the cable news channels, are not his friends.  They don’t care about him or his future.  They think he’s cute, fairly articulate, and that he currently serves a temporary purpose in helping them hammer Republicans and President Trump.  Once that purpose has run its course – which will take no more than another week or two – all of these people who Hogg currently believes are his friends will drop him like a hot potato and pretend not to know him for all the rest of his natural life.

These people Hogg has gotten himself tied up with are ghouls, the vampires of American society.  They suck the life out of people like Hogg to feed their political purposes, and then discard the lifeless carcass once it has finished feeding their current narrative.  Hogg obviously has been led to believe that his current actions are setting himself up for a career in the media or politics.  That is sadly, horrifically incorrect, and some adult in his life needs to intervene, soon.

Just another day in Democrats are ghouls America.

That is all.

The Media Just Keeps Faking The News And Donald Trump Loves It

  • These continue to be trying times for the NFL.  While most teams continue to announce their games as “sell outs”, thanks mainly to corporate ticket-buying programs, games all over the NFL were played to sparse attendance on Sunday as actual fans choose to stay home in droves.  This week’s Thursday Night Football game between the Denver Broncos and some other team that no one cares about received the worst Thursday game ratings in years.  The player protests of the national anthem go on and on, though their coverage has been muted by the TV networks desperate to move on from the matter, but the damage has been done.  The sub-moron team owners recently chose to extend the contract of Commissioner Roger Goodell, saddling the league with a raging nitwit-in-charge for another five-year term.
  • If you want another reason why many fans have abandoned a league they supported for many years, all you need do is look at what happened at the end of the game between the Steelers and Patriots on Sunday.  After Tom Brady had led his team on one of his 50+ 4th quarter TD drives to apparently put the game away, the Steelers stormed right back down the field in 3 plays, scoring what appeared to be the winning TD on a pass from QB Ben Roethlisberger to TE Jesse James with 28 seconds left.  This was a play that would have counted as a clear and unambiguous touchdown at any other level of football – college, high school, jr. high or Pop Warner – it was a TD anywhere else on earth as soon as the ball crossed over the plane of the goal line with the receiver in firm possession of it.
  • But, because the receiver lost control of the ball when he slammed to the ground in the end zone, the replay officials called the play an incomplete pass.  Roethlisberger threw an interception on the next play, and the game had been literally given to the Patriots by the officials.  This is the same horrible, idiotic rule that was invoked to hand an apparent Dallas Cowboys playoff win in 2014 to the Green Bay Packers instead.  The fact that this lunatic rule is still on the NFL’s books three years later tells you all you need to know about the morons who run this league.
  • The fake editors and fake reporters at CNN will get this story wrong, too. – The UK Guardian reports that Pope Francis “has criticised journalists who dredge up old scandals and sensationalise the news, saying it’s a “very serious sin” that hurts all involved.”  In response, fake reporters all over the fake news media here in the U.S. were assigned by their fake editors to look into the Pope’s background and see what, if any scandals they could dig up.
  • Speaking of faking the news, the national news media and the Democrat Party coordinated all weekend long to push a fake story about President Trump supposedly planning to fire Robert Mueller.  Faced with having to make the GOP’s pending passage of the largest tax cut in American history the lead story of the weekend, the Democrats and fake news outlets did what they do anytime they’re faced with having to cover a positive story about the Trump Administration – they made a fake story up that they could focus on instead.
  • Late on Friday, the Democrats sent obscure California Congresswoman Jackie Speier out on TV to push out the claim that there was a “rumor” going around congress that the President planned to make a nationally televised speech right before Christmas announcing the firing of the Special Counsel.  Once Speier had made that claim – a claim no one else in congress was making, a claim put out into the public space absent the slightest shred of evidence, a claim made despite the consistent, repeated denials from the White House every time the question has been asked since March – it became the lead story on every fake news broadcast, headline news in every fake news paper across the country, and the lead story on every one of the Sunday morning fake news programs.
  • Thus, for an entire weekend, when responsible, real journalists would have been working to inform their readers and viewers about what this new, gigantic reform of the U.S. tax system – the first such major reform in more than three decades – means to them, the fake news media focused instead on coordinating with the Democrat Party to promote a myth.
  • Granted, there are all sorts of great reasons why Robert Mueller deserves to be fired, including 1) his appointment by Rod Rosenstein was illegitimate to begin with, 2) Mueller’s massive personal conflicts of interest related to the case, 3) his stacking of his staff with an array of hyper-partisan hacks, and 4) his resorting to illegal means of obtaining the Trump Transition team’s email records, to name just a few.
  • Despite all those great reasons that would fully justify Mueller’s firing, there has never been the slightest indication that the President had any plans to do so.  As he has been since Day 1 of his presidency, Donald Trump appears perfectly content to let the media fake up all the fake stories it wants to fake, while he and his administration just keep executing radical change for real Americans with little notice.
  • Winning.  So, so, soooo much winning.

Just another weekend in So, So, Soooo Much Winning! America.

That is all.

The Campaign Update Week In Review – Soooo Much Winning!

Here’s where we are in President Donald Trump’s Administration eight days before Christmas…

  • The economy is booming, with the New York branch of the Federal Reserve now estimating it will grow at the pace of 3.98% in the fourth quarter.  That would represent our third straight quarter above 3% economic growth, a feat not achieved in over a decade.
  • Unemployment is nearing a record low, asThirteen states this year have seen their unemployment rates drop to the lowest levels ever recorded since the federal government began keeping track of state-level data more than four decades ago.”
  • Regulations are vanishing at an amazing pace –  When he came into office in January, one of the first things President Trump did was issue an executive order mandating that, for every new regulation his agencies propose, they must eliminate at least two existing regulations.  The Trump Administration announced that it has in fact eliminated a staggering 22 existing regulations for each new proposal.  This rapid elimination of the Obama regulatory agenda is probably the main reason why the economy is booming today.
  • Obama holdovers are also vanishing at a rapid pace More than 700 employees have now left the EPA since President Trump took office.  Of course, as a friend pointed out Twitter, most of them will just go back to the radical leftwing anti-development groups they came from and continuing being a burden to society, but at least taxpayers won’t have to pay their ridiculous salaries anymore.
  • Meanwhile, at the Department of the Interior (DOI), Secretary Ryan Zinke announced this week that he had fired 4 senior DOI employees for charges of sexual harassmenet, and  said “I will remove 400 more if necessary.”  Cool.  Get after it, Mr. Secretary.
  • The Dow Jones Industrials closed at a record high on Friday, marking the 69th time that has happened since Donald Trump won the election over the Pantsuit Princes last November.  That is not a coincidence, either.
  • The largest tax cut in American history is on the verge of being passed – As mentioned in yesterday’s Campaign Update, the announcements by GOP Senators Marco Rubio and Bob Corker that they will support the bill would give Mitch McConnell the 51 votes he needs on Tuesday to send the bill to the President’s desk.
  • CNN, the king of the fake news universe, continues to suck wind behind Fox News and MSNBC in the cable news race.
  • The Federal Communications Commission rescinded the Obama Administration’s absurdly mis-named “Net Neutrality” rules.  These rules actually were designed to give favorable treatment to Obama-preferred Internet behemoths like Facebook, YouTube and Twitter, in that presidency’s fervent efforts to have the government picking winners and losers in every industry.  No more.
  • #MeToo meets “Hardball” – fake MSNBC host Chris Matthews found himself the latest NBC celebrity to be embroiled in the never-ending sexual abuse scandal on Saturday, when it was revealed that the network had paid out $40,000 to an accuser in 1999 and formally reprimanded him for his behavior.  Of course, like congress, the Peacock Network – which obviously has had a whole bunch of peacocks in rut running around its halls for many years – kept it all a secret until it had no choice.  With Matt Lauer, Mark Halperin and now Matthews all outed, The Campaign Update just can’t wait to find out what NBC has been keeping secret about its other hosts.
  • The Mueller-led attempted coup d’etat continues to unravel, and leftwingers are getting so desperate that they are now resorting to sending California Congresswoman Jackie Speer out to push fake “rumors” that the President is planning to fire Mueller before Christmas.   Hilariously, 70 year-old commie producer Rob Reiner and 80+ year-old washed up actor George Takkei both threatened to “take to the streets” should Trump fire the Witch-Hunter-in-Chief.  Now, that would be fun to watch.

Sadly, that won’t be happening, because Mueller won’t be going anywhere, at least not until the DOJ Inspector General issues his final report on wrongdoing within the DOJ and FBI in January.  Then, all bets will be off.

Just another week in Soooo Much Winning! America.

That is all.

The Campaign Update Week In Review: Winning. Sooooo Much Winning.

So, let’s review the week we have just experienced, because it will be remembered as the week the tide truly turned:

  • Humiliation for pretty much every major fake media outlet:  CNN, Reuters, Bloomberg, ABC, NBC, CBS, MSNBC, WaPo and NPR.  Somehow, the NYTimes escaped major embarrassment, unless I missed something.  Sheer luck, no doubt.
  • The Mueller coup d’etat effort began to come unraveled, as detailed in Friday morning’s Campaign Update.
  • Supreme court upholds Trump travel ban on a 7-2 decision.
  • The Trump economy is booming, and our pathetic ex-President is wandering around the country desperately trying to take credit for it.
  • ISIS is in utter and complete shambles, a story the fake news media is desperately ignoring.
  • Roy Moore is headed for a landslide win in next Tuesday’s special election, as pretty much all of his accusers have been shown to be liars.
  • Trump announces U.S. will finally move its embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.  Democrats and media go insane with rage.
  • Al Franken and John Conyers have been run out of congress by their Democrat colleagues, who are desperately searching for a new angle of attack against President Trump, now that their whole “Russia Collusion” fantasy has collapsed.
  • Justice Department initiates investigation into Planned Parenthood’s trafficking in baby body parts.
  • Bad actors in the FBI and Justice Department are being systematically marginalized.
  • The biggest tax cut in American history being negotiated in conference committee.
  • And did I mention that the Trump economy is booming?  I did? That’s ok, it can’t be pointed out often enough.

Just another week in I cannot get enough of this #WINNING  America.

That is all.

Trump Enrages The Atlantic Simply By Eating. Now, That is Winning!

  • Why are fake news media outlets such cesspits of abuse and bigotry?  Part 3,152 – Eternally belligerent MSNBC fake news host Joy Reid issued an apology yesterday for the revelation of a heinously bigoted, homophobia-filled blog she maintained about a decade ago, but not, of course, before she had attempted to delete the blog entirely.   “At no time have I intentionally sought to demean or harm the LGBT community, which includes people whom I deeply love,” Reid said, though, in her blog, she obviously did do that on many, many occasions.  Guess the devil made her do it.
  • Hey, c’mon, it was an innocent 3-year long mistake.  Could’ve happened to anybody. – MSNBC, which, as a part of NBC, has been embroiled in dealing with the recent sex abuse scandals swirling around its own Mark Halperin and NBC’s Matt Lauer, was mute on the Reid controversy.  But after all, MSNBC is the network that kept the likes of Keith Olbermann and Al Sharpton employed for years, so expecting this particular fake news outlet to punish Joy Reid in any meaningful way is like expecting ABC to do so with, say, Brian Ross.
  • Hey, when something’s inevitable, you might as well enjoy it. – Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, who was among the first political figure to jump out and try to force Judge Roy Moore out of the Alabama Senate race when he became accused of weird sexual behavior back in the early ’80s, has had a sudden change of heart.  On Sunday, McConnell told a fake interviewer on ABC’s This Week that “I’m going to let the people of Alabama make the call.”  Well, that’s mighty big of you, Mitch, given that you have absolutely no say in the matter at all.
  • Someone really should remind the WaPo about the definition of insanity. – The Majority Leader was most likely just responding to a raft of new polls that almost uniformly show Judge Moore with a fairly strong lead of 6-8 points among likely voters in the race.  I say “almost” because the reliable hacks at the Washington Post poll made a last-ditch effort to influence the race, tossing in a faked-up poll pretending to show Democrat Doug Jones with a 3 point lead.  Everyone should remember that it was the Washington Post/ABC poll that showed Hillary Clinton with a 13-point lead less than two weeks before Election Day 2016.  We saw how that worked out for them.
  • Having apparently exhausted all other avenues of irrationally slamming President Donald Trump (I never tire of typing those three words), the fake journalists who infest The Atlantic have now decided to go after him for his…wait for it…EATING HABITS!  I kid you not, some guy named James Hamblin issued a piece on Saturday that condemns Trump for liking – gasp! – McDonald’s and – horrors! – Oreos, for regularly consuming more that elite society deems appropriate in one sitting, and for snarfing down his food too quickly.  Why, the nerve!
  • Here’s a typical paragraph:  “There is no question that this diet is dangerous and is very likely to shorten a person’s life. His dietary pattern adds to the picture of a 70-year-old man who has long been living against all health advice—who does not exercise, who barely sleeps, who has tumultuous relationships, who is frequently enraged.” The author even goes on to claim that the President’s eating habits might well get us all killed, speculating that “Decisions to live this way would seem to offer insight into Trump’s ability to assess risk. In light of a nuclear standoff with North Korea, rapidly warming oceans, and a looming tax bill that would leave millions more Americans without health insurance, his approach to self-maintenance is not reassuring.”
  • It takes a special kind man to be able to enrage leftist Manhattan elitists by the simple act of consuming food, and it is oddly reassuring to so many millions of us out here in flyover country that our current POTUS is exactly that kind of man.  Now I think I’ll run out to McDonald’s and get three bacon, eggs and cheese biscuits and a large Diet Coke for breakfast.

Just another day in Donald Trump is Winning Through Eating America.

That is all.

Fisking The Fake News Media – Opportunities Abound

Today’s Campaign Update 

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

  • Well, we now know what occupies this clown’s mind. – After the magnificent NRA spokesman Dana Loesch said the organization plans to “fisk” the NYTimes, fake Times reporter Adam Goldman got on Twitter in a panic and wailed that the NRA wanted to sexually assault his newspaper.  Mr. Goldman admitted he thought Ms. Loesch had said “fist”.  The word “fisk” is a new media term for going through the fake media reports line by line and refuting them.  Odd that the Millenial Mr. Goldman is unfamiliar with that word.  But then, he obviously has other things on his mind.
  • Oh, you’re so sweet… Maxine Waters told the harpies on The View that, “when we finish with (impeach) Trump, we have to go and get Putin. He’s next.”  When faced with blank stares from the harpies, she then fumbled around and came up with the name of “Pence” to identify her next target.  This is who the Democrats call a “leader”.  Maybe Dana Loesch should target Maxine and The View with her fisking next.  Hilarity would definitely ensue.
  • Their Ad should read “Jim Acosta Diaper Hamper For Sale”… – Deadline Hollywood reports that AT&T is contemplating selling off CNN once its acquisition of CNN parent company Time Warner is consummated.  Really?  What self-respecting company is going to want to purchase a fake news channel that can’t beat re-runs of “Bewitched” in the ratings?  Of course, Jeff Bezos and Amazon could always buy CNN, since they’re buying everything else.  A CNN/Washington Post merger would be the fake news equivalent of the merger of Exxon and Mobil Oil.
  • Tired of Winning Yet?, Part I – The Trump economy created 209,000 jobs in July, beating estimates for the 6th straight month, and running the total jobs created since Donald Trump took office to more than 1 million.  The fake news media largely ignored the story, with Twitter going so far as to shadow ban positive tweets about the report.  No surprise here – the Democrats and fake news media know that they must keep the public focused on fake scandals in order to kill this presidency.  Reporting positive economic news is just not part of the narrative.
  • Tired of Winning Yet?, Part II – The Dow gained more than 70 points on Friday, marking the 8th straight day it has closed at a record high.  Given that the Dow has traditionally been a leading indicator of future economic growth, the Democrats and their fake journalist propaganda agents are going to have a great big pile of good economic news to try to ignore in the coming months.
  • Speaking of the Fake News Media, Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced on Friday that he is finally getting serious about identifying and prosecuting intelligence agency and White House employees responsible for the incessant leaking to major fake media outlets.  As part of that campaign to get serious, Mr. Sessions said he is considering issuing subpoenas to offending fake journalists and fake media outlets who rush to print or air classified information. “We respect the role that the press plays and will give them respect, but it is not unlimited. They cannot place lives at risk with impunity.”  Sure is nice to think that someone is finally going to attempt to enforce some accountability on fake journalists who abuse their privileges, but only time will tell if Mr. Sessions is truly serious here.  Hey, maybe Dana Loesch can help – she’s already got the NYTimes trembling at the knees.
  • This really isn’t rocket scienceThe UK Daily Mail reports that investigators are considering the use of lie detector tests as a tool to ID the leakers.  Here’s a suggestion:  apply the first two lie detectors to Susan Rice’s bestest buddy H.R. McMaster and Obama loyalist Hope Hicks, who somehow remains employed in the White House communications department, and see if the leaks from the West Wing don’t dry up completely over night.  I’ll even give you odds.

Just another day in all fake news, all the time America.

Fake News, Real News, And Winning

Today’s Campaign Update 

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

  • Tired of winning yet? – the Dow closed at yet another all-time record high on Tuesday, now approaching the 22,000 level.  It has now risen almost 20% since Election Day.  Second quarter GDP growth – the first full quarter of the Trump presidency – was pegged at 2.6%, equaling the highest growth rate the economy ever saw during Barack Obama’s 8-year regulatory free-for-all.  We should expect to see even higher growth rates as the current administration continues to remove the regulatory shackles from the nation’s industries.
  • Couldn’t happen to a nicer guy. –  Sara Carter at Circa News, one of the handful of real working journalists still active in the nation’s capital, reports that former Obama National Security Advisor Ben Rhodes has been added to the House Intelligence Committee’s growing list of suspects in the illegal unmasking investigation.  Rhodes joins the mugshot lineup that already includes Obama-era luminaries like Samantha Power, John Brennan and Susan Rice.  You may remember Rhodes, who is most famous for openly admitting to an interviewer that the Obama Administration and fake news media regularly coordinated narratives and messages.
  • My God, dude, have you no life at all? – After President Trump used the term “Paddy Wagon” in a speech to law enforcement officials last week, the fake editors at the Washington Post thought it would be a great idea to run a 700 word dissertation by some guy named James Mulvaney about why this “slur” is “insulting…to Irish Americans”.  Mr. Mulvaney, like almost every leftist in the United States, has no sense of humor.  Fair warning to parents of college-age children with law-degree aspirations:  Mulvaney is adjunct professor at John Jay College of Criminal Justice, at least if the WaPo can be believed on that point, which as we have found, is an unsafe assumption at best.  The lesson here is, don’t let your kids attend John Jay College.
  •  Wait, wasn’t Bain Capital the Devil to you guys just 5 years ago? – Don’t look now, but Politico reports that Barack Obama has decided that the Democrats’ best hope to run against Donald Trump in 2020 is…wait for it…wait for it…DEVAL PATRICK!  What’s that?  The name sounds sort familiar but you really have no idea who that is?  Yeah, that’s the point.  For those who, like me, had a hard time recalling exactly who this clown is while reading that story, Mr. Patrick is an ex-Governor of Massachusetts, something that, in addition to being an executive at Bain Capital, he has in common with Mitt Romney.  You remember Bain Capital, right?  That’s the firm that, in 2012, was portrayed by the Obama campaign and the fake news media as representing everything that is wrong with America.  Five years later, it’s no big deal.  But whatever, trust me on this:  If the 2020 Democrat field is made up of 80 year-old communist Bernie Sanders, 74 year-old lifetime criminal Hillary Clinton, 70 year-old fake Indian Elizabeth Warren and an obscure ex-Governor of Massachusetts, the Party might as well not even bother.
  • How did this get into the NYTimes? – Don’t look now, but a member of the editorial staff at the NYTimes somehow slipped an op-ed piece past his colleagues titled “When Progressives Embrace Hate”.  Nevermind, of course, that American progressives have embraced hate since the day American progressives became a thing, this is the NYTimes we’re talking about here.  This is actual (pardon the pun) progress!  The editor, Bari Weiss, writes about 800 words about how awful it is that the organizers of the Women’s March last January included the hate-mongering Islamist Linda Sarsour, and how repugnant it is that this hateful woman continues to be embraced by American progressives.  That’s all true, and it is indeed nice of at least one person on the NYTimes editorial board to finally notice Ms. Sarsour’s true nature, but it’s hilarious that Ms. Weiss thinks this is all somehow a surprise.  Had she been paying any attention at all, she would know that the entire progressive philosophy is based on hate.  But, to quote the great John McClain, “Welcome to the party, pal.”

Just another day in fake news media America.

Better Jobs, Better Wa…Wait, What Did Trump Just Tweet?

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

  • On Monday, the Democrats rolled out their new Papa Johns-plagiarized slogan:   “A Better Deal: Better Jobs, Better Wages, Better Future.”  The slogan was so silly, so hokey, so obviously not having to do with anything today’s Democrat Party is all about that even the Democrat operatives at MSNBC mocked it mercilessly (though CNN dutifully played along).  The Party’s strategy, of course, was to yet again attempt to fool the American people that it had a focus on jobs and helping the average American have a better life.  The truth, of course, is that the Party and its agenda were long ago co-opted by Social Justice Warriors and Enviro-Nazis, which is the fundamental reason why the Republican Party holds every lever of power in the nation’s capital today.
  • But Chuck Schumer, Nancy Pelosi and the lunatics who are in charge of the DNC know they can’t actually change their focus to things that actually make a difference in Americans’ daily lives, so instead they paid some consultant millions of dollars to paraphrase a slogan off a Papa John’s pizza box.  Now, they thought, we can focus on our nifty new slogan, and pretend we care about the middle class!  It’ll be awesome!  High fives were flying at DNC Headquarters.  But then, on Wednesday, the President started tweeting….
  • …and part of his daily tweet storm that day was a two-tweet announcement that the U.S. military would no longer accept trans-gender applicants and force the U.S. middle class taxpayers to foot the bill for their trans-gender surgeries while they served.  In response, the Democrats and their agents who make up 98% of the nation’s news media went stark raving mad.  The Party’s focus was right back in the hands of the SJWs, the efforts to change the subject instantly forgotten.
  • Slogan?  What slogan?
  • Tired of winning yet? – The Taiwanese company FoxConn announced it is investing more than $10 billion in a new manufacturing plant in Wisconsin, a move that will create 13,000 American jobs.  President Trump wisely held a joint announcement in the White House with the company’s CEO.  Immediately after, heads could be heard exploding all over CNN headquarters in Atlanta.
  • Tired of winning yet, Part II? – On Wednesday, the Dow, the NASDAQ and the S&P 500 indices all reached all-time highs.  The fake news media – except for Fox News – were all too busy screaming about presidential tweets to notice.
  • The NYPost reports that Dancing With The Stars is currently in negotiations with…wait for it….wait for it…SEAN SPICER!  That.  Is.  Awesome.  Go for it, big guy.
  • Kid Rock, who is running for the U.S. Senate in Michigan against the execrable Debbie Stabenow, announced on his website that he will be registering people to vote…at his performances!  Those loud noises you heard yesterday were heads exploding at DNC Headquarters.  Yeah, they were exploding over the President’s tweets, but they would have exploded over this, too, had they had the chance.
  • After 9 Republican senators voted against the initial Obamacare repeal and replace bill on Tuesday evening, 7 GOP senators compounded the Party’s mendacity by joining all Democrats in voting down a repeal-only bill on Wednesday.  Five of those seven had voted for the exact same bill in the past when they knew Barack Obama would veto it:  Lisa Murkowski, John McCain, Rob Portman, Shelly Capito, and Lamar Alexander.  Dean Heller of Nevada wasn’t around in the Obama years, so he gets a pass on the hypocrisy, and, as I mentioned yesterday, Susan Collins has never in the past voted in favor of Obamacare repeal, consistently siding with her soulmates in the Democrat Party.  Hopefully, all seven will receive strong primary challengers.  They deserve them.

Just another day in Democrat heads exploding and fake Republican mendacity America.

That is all.
