Will He Go Full Frontal?

South Bend Mayor “Alfred E. Newman” will be featured in the next issue of Playboy magazine focusing on LGBTQ rights.

Speaking during an MSNBC town hall hosted by Chris Matthews in Fresno, CA earlier this month, he was asked how he would have acted had he been in the Senate as sexual misconduct allegations swirled around Minnesota’s Hall of Fame moron Al Franken.

Franken, you’ll remember, was called on to resign after multiple women accused him of engaging in sexual misconduct.  Every Democrat senator demanded his resignation.

Buttigieg said he wouldn’t have joined his Democrat colleagues saying, “I would not have applied that pressure at that time.”

Buttigieg has tapped into a powerful network of LGBTQ donors, a wealthy, engaged, and motivated group that has for years been a driving force behind Democrat presidential candidates but that has never had a gay major-party candidate to rally behind in a presidential election.

We learned just the other day that a political organization backing LGBTQ candidates for office, Victory Fund, is planning to endorse the first gay candidate for president.  Mayor Pete will formally receive the group’s backing on June 20th in Boston.

I need someone to explain to me why a magazine, once considered the vanguard of the sexual revolution, whose sole purpose for decades was to objectify women is pushing the candidacy of a gay man who wouldn’t touch a woman with a 10-foot pole.

When Pictures Of Norwegian Operatives Surface

Who believed for a skinny minute when skeevie worm George Stephanopolous interviewed President Trump the other day the President didn’t know exactly what dirty tricks the Clinton minion was pulling?

You’ll remember little Georgie asked if the President’s campaign were contacted by a foreign entity with dirt on his opponent would he notify the FBI.  The President answered, “I think maybe you do both. I think you might want to listen. There isn’t anything wrong with listening,” the President answered. “If somebody called from a country—Norway—and said, ‘We have information on your opponent’—oh, I think I’d want to hear it.”

The President went on to say everyone does it.  This revelation set Beltway tongues wagging and Twitter filled up with renewed calls from 2020 Democrat challengers to impeach.

In February 2018, the Daily Mail published a report detailing a prank call made to Adam “Pencil Neck” Schiff by two Russian comedians.  In the audio recording, the comedians offered “compromising dirt” on President Trump including nude photos.

Schiff claimed he knew all along the call was bogus and yet his staff engaged in correspondence with what they thought was a Ukrainian politician to obtain the “classified” material promised in the call.

The Washington Examiner’s Byron York was among many who pointed out that former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was involved in funding opposition research conducted by British spy Christopher Steele that relied on foreign sources.
The Senate tried passing a bill via unanimous consent on Thursday, which would force any campaign that was contacted by a foreign entity to report it to the FBI, but Tennessee Sen. Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) blocked it.

The Lunatic Fringe

Following on the heels of Democrat presidential hopeful Sen. Kirsten Gillebrand’s preposterous statement equating those of us who are pro-life with racists, a fake gringa representing the 35th Congressional District in California said on the House floor, “Mr. Speaker, it is tiring to hear from so many sex-starved males on this floor talk about a woman’s right to choose.”

That moronic comment came from Rep. Norma Torres (D-CA) during a debate on a spending bill for the Department of Health and Human Services.  Rep. Ross Spano (R-FL) opposed the legislation pointing out it weakened protections against federal tax dollars being used to fund abortions.  Spano said, “For more than 40 years, this country operated under the policy that not one cent of taxpayer money can be used to fund abortion. We are a nation that deeply values religious liberty.” 
In March of 2013, Alisa Lapolt Snow, a lobbyist representing the Florida Alliance of Planned Parenthood Affiliates, testified before the Florida House to oppose a law requiring abortionists to provide care for babies born alive during botched abortions in the starkest terms possible. 

Snow told the Florida legislature that if a child is born alive during a botched abortion, its survival “should be left up to the woman, her family, and the physician.”

In response to the new abortion law in Georgia and legislation in Alabama, National Public Radio restated its long-standing guidance regarding abortion and related topics.

“One thing to keep in mind about this law and others like it: Proponents refer to it as a ‘fetal heartbeat’ law. That is their term. It needs to be attributed to them if used and put in quotation marks if printed. We should not simply say the laws are about when a ‘fetal heartbeat’ is detected. As we've reported, heartbeat activity can be detected ‘about six weeks into a pregnancy.’ That's at least a few weeks before an embryo is a fetus.”

“The term ‘unborn’ implies that there is a baby inside a pregnant woman, not a fetus. Babies are not babies until they are born. They’re fetuses. Incorrectly calling a fetus a ‘baby’ or ‘the unborn’ is part of the strategy used by anti-abortion groups to shift language/legality/public opinion.”

Joy Pullman, mother of five and Executive Editor of The Federalist noted, “…since newspersons deal in daily atrocity and gore from the likes of wars, famines, and hurricanes, it’s hard to understand why they all drive out to gawk at the law-breaking foreigners Americans feed, give medical care to, clothe, protect, and transport, but want to stay as far away as possible from other vulnerable people our society allows to have their heads mortally pierced with scissors or a scalpel inside their own mother’s wombs.”

It would appear Torres alienated her constituents well before yesterday’s reprehensible remarks:

Jon Stewart Gives Angry Speech To Congress On Behalf Of 9/11 First Responders

Make My Name Really, Really Big

The poster boy for fake news is hawking his “tell-all” book outlining what’s it like reporting on the Trump Administration.

The new book by Jim Acosta, “The Enemy of the People: A Dangerous Time to Tell the Truth in America” was promoted on CNN’s comedy hour Reliable Sources with Tater Stelter and people noticed the book’s cover.
Little Jimmy is so focused on making everything about him that he can't report the news. His goal is to become the news. In his interview with Tater he tried to elicit sympathy because he feels “unsafe”.  What a pantywaist.  There are real journalists across the globe reporting from warzones in the Middle East and elsewhere where terrorists are slaughtering people.  Being shown up by a president who calls out his bullshit is not a threat.  It’s called the truth; something from which he and his network are thoroughly divorced.
You can rest assured our newshound Dexter Sprinkley will not paw a book in search of notoriety.  All he wants is a tennis ball, plenty of kibble and belly rubs.

Iowa Democrat Party Hall Of Fame Clown Show

We have launched the PCP News Channel hiring a well-bred newshound, Dexter Sprinkley, to anchor our newscast.  Our focus will be on the field of 2020 Democrat candidates for president and to counter the fake news of Tater Stelter, The Accoster, Don LeMon and Ricky Madcow.

We have spared no expense in bringing you this innovative coverage of the political events that will have an impact on the future of our republic.

We purchased a dog house for Dexter and had a muralist paint the backdrop of a newsroom inside it.  We greased the palm of a nerd at a local electronics store to buy a new GoPro Hero 7 camera with 4K HD streaming and a Magic Mic™ and installed a 75-inch 4K Ultra HD widescreen TV.

Dexter’s first field report is from the Doubletree Hilton in Cedar Rapids, IA where 19 candidates challenging President Trump spoke for five minutes to the assembled audience.

Beto the Furry rented a taco truck and served free chorizo.  John Delaney hired a bagpiper and a mini blimp to fly overhead.  Pocahontas’ supporters wore bright feather boas.  (Feather headdresses would have been too on-the-nose.) 

Amy Klobuchar, senator from the Great State of Minnesota, tried to sell herself to the crowd as someone from America’s heartland in an unoriginal Sarah Palin-like manner saying, “I can see Iowa from my porch.”

The socialist guy who combs his hair with a balloon marched with striking workers and activists and Mayor Alfred E. Neuman hosted a barbecue as he played the piano with a local band.

Look at the throng of peeps to see him:
This ain’t your grandpa’s Democrat Party.  It’s full of socialists, identity politics activists and super-pissed leftists and all they ever clearly articulate is “Trump should be impeached, Trump is a racist, Trump is a fascist and Trump is mentally ill.”

Other than that, these party clowns with bubbles coming out of their hinies ain’t got squat.

If you’re interested, you can watch their 5-minute speeches via The Des Moines Register by clicking on the links below.

The Circus Came To Cedar Rapids, Iowa On Sunday

Nineteen party clowns with bubbles coming out of their hinies got five minutes apiece to address Iowa Democrats from a single stage in Cedar Rapids on Sunday. It was the first official one of its kind in the 2020 campaign season.

The high-profile audition came as Democrats are jockeying for position on abortion rights, economic inequality, global warming, health care, gun control, foreign policy and Trump Derangement Syndrome.

Pete Buttigieg, who hopes to be America's first openly gay president, spoke disdainfully of President Trump's ability to maintain a grip on the nation's political attention. 

He said Americans should embrace popular-vote presidential elections, demand steep minimum-wage increases and lean toward statehood for Puerto Rico and the District of Columbia.

Buttigieg blasted the President for promoting a “vision of security that goes no further than putting up a wall from sea to shining sea” which he said ignores “the violent white nationalism that presents a clear and present threat to our country.”

That’s a dubious assertion given that this happened at the event:
And in a veiled slap at Republicans' longstanding alliance with evangelical groups that condemn his wedded-gay lifestyle, Buttigieg glared at cameras declaring, “God does not belong to any political party, least of all the one that produced this current president.”

Buttigieg, an amateur pianist, walked to the convention center after playing keyboard onstage with a hired band at a “Picnic with Pete” event at a nearby park.

Mexico Pays For The Wall By Becoming The Wall

Headed home aboard Air Force One after his trip to the United Kingdom and France to commemorate the 75th anniversary of D-Day, President Trump raised hopes for a deal with Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador’s government to reach a deal that would avert the imposition of tariffs on all products entering the United States from Mexico.

The President announced on Twitter Friday night he had suspended plans to impose tariffs on all goods saying Mexico “has agreed to take strong measures to stem the tide of migration through Mexico and to our southern border.”

The main points of the U.S.-Mexico Joint Declaration, according to the State Department are:
  •         An enforcement “surge” by the Mexican government along its southern border [with Guatemala]
  •         New protocols allowing the United States to immediately return illegals to Mexico where they would await the processing of any asylum claim
  •         Regional efforts to help spur economic growth and development in Central America to dissuade people from trying to illegally reach the U.S.

"Mexico will take unprecedented steps to increase enforcement to curb irregular migration, to include the deployment of its National Guard throughout Mexico, giving priority to its southern border," read a joint statement issued by the State Department on Friday night.

The agreement states the Mexican government will also take "decisive action" against human smuggling organizations to stop those profiting from the trek to the U.S. border.

The failing New York Times opined, “The deal to avert tariffs President Trump announced with great fanfare on Friday night consists largely of actions that Mexico had already promised to take in prior discussions with the United States over the past several months, according to officials from both countries who are familiar with the negotiations.”

Far from being a foreign policy or international economics wonk, I’d be willing to wager the New York Times, Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer and Mitch McConnell who have openly criticized the President’s decision to impose tariffs, don’t have a clue regarding the background negotiations that solidified the agreement.

Vice President Mike Pence and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo were among the Trump Administration officials involved in the talks while the President was in Europe.

While a candidate for president, Donald Trump threatened to cut off remittances to Mexico, proclaiming that such a move would pressure the Mexican government to cough up “a one-time payment of $5 to 10 billion” for his border wall.  The U.S. government has never tried to put the plan in place.

According to a published report from Mexico News Daily, “Mexicans working abroad, mainly in the United States, sent $33.48 billion to Mexico last year, an increase of 10.5% over the 2017 figure, according to the Bank of México (Banxico).

The remittances were sent in 103.9 million separate transactions, a 6% increase on the 2017 figure, and each one was on average $322 compared to $309 the year before, Banxico data shows.

Almost 98% of remittances were sent by electronic means and just over 94% came from the United States.

The total dollar amount sent to Mexico made remittances the country’s second largest foreign currency earner after auto exports, which totaled around $142 billion.  Bear in mind one U.S. dollar equals $19.62 pesos at the current rate of exchange.

The United States is the world's biggest sender of remittances worldwide, with nearly $135 billion flowing to other countries each year, according to Brion Nazzaro, group compliance director for WorldRemit Corp.

Trump could make use of anti-money laundering regulations to warn banks away from doing business with firms in Mexico.

The use of remittance as a bargaining tool would take an immediate chunk out of Mexico's economy, potentially damage U.S. companies and unintentionally rearrange how digital technology executes payments.

The remittance industry is complex, and it would be difficult to sever any one country, Nazzaro said, though Trump could make use of anti-money laundering regulations to warn banks away from doing business with firms in Mexico.

The logistical challenges involve how funds are transferred. For Western Union or MoneyGram remittances, in which someone wires money via brick and mortar stores, the trail is easier to follow and theoretically easier to shut off because there's a location on each side of the border. But lots of payments are now made through mobile apps, where the origination and destination of the account is less easy to discern.

"What could be classified as a remittance for being cut off is very hard to define," said Richard Crone, a payments consultant. Many digital P-to-P transfers aren't categorized as cross-border transfers because they can involve two U.S. accounts, with one person just happening to be in Mexico. "Does PayPal or Venmo fall in? Does Xoom?," Crone said.

That confusion could actually be good for some companies, Crone said. The impact of "squeezing" one part of the remittance balloon could be explosive for another part of the market.

"For the traditional guys in the business, I'd watch out," Crone said. MoneyGram has more than 16,000 locations in Mexico, while Western Union has more than 10,000.

Since the breakdown of talks in early May, Beijing and Washington have been exchanging sharp words as to which side is to blame for the breakdown in trade talks.

Christine Lagarde, the head of the International Monetary Fund, reiterated her call for the U.S. and China to deescalate their trade war, which she warned is the biggest risk to global economic growth.

Reuters has a good article explaining the levers China can pull to escalate its trade war against the U.S.

President Trump has vowed to discuss the festering trade war with Chinese President Xi Jinping on the sidelines of the G20 Summit in Osaka, Japan later this month.

Will he be able to pull another rabbit out of the hat?
