May 25, 2019

It’s going to be a beautiful weekend here in the Valley of Sun. If having our daily May norms running 10-20 degrees below normal is because of climate change (which, of course, it isn’t) all I can say is bring it on! To get to the last week in May and have only one day where my backyard patio thermometer hit 100 degrees is pretty remarkable. It won’t last, of course, but the coming week also looks to be running below normal. I’ll say this, it’s going to make our electric bill for this month pretty easy on the eyes.

It’s stuff like this that adds a needed dose of realism to everyone (most especially the pollsters) who live and breathe politics on a daily basis. You can predict and project about the 2020 election all you want, but eighteen months is a lifetime in politics. All these clowns and talking heads on the cable news networks can spew their daily bullshit all they want, but they can’t even predict what will happen in the next 24-48 hours, let alone eighteen months.

I find it all sickening.

The sad truth is that the so called cable “news” networks really aren’t about news anymore, they’re all about speculation and controversy, nothing more. FOX Business, I think, appears to do a pretty good job, by and large, but the rest of them are just feces for the mind.

…which is why I so despise reading about polls and the mainstream media using the polls as a means to run the 2020 horse race through continuous 24-hour news cycles. These people are shameless – like they did such a great job in 2016, right? And yet they publish their same crapola and have the cable news networks treat it as gospel.

I’m normally not one for conspiracy theories, but let me try this one out for y’all. While everyone knew that sooner or later President Trump was going to order the declassification of documents associated with the Russia collusion hoax and the “silent coup” that certain leaders of our nation’s intelligence community attempted against the president, the breadth of the President’s order the other day still amazes. Look at those departments and agencies instructed to participate in the declassification effort: Treasury, Defense, Energy, Homeland Security, Director of National Intelligence, and CIA, and I’m seeing the Obama administration in the crosshairs. Otherwise, why not just leave it at, say, DNI / FBI, and CIA? So here’s the scenario I’m thinking – bear with me on this:

1. Democrats and Republicans in Washington alike were well aware the Obama administration was up to its eyeballs in illegal spying (I’m sorry, I mean surveillance) on Americans – including many members of the press – for purely political reasons so as to undercut their political agenda. Sure, spying on innocent Americans with FISA warrants wasn’t new, but what the Obama administration was doing took things to a whole new level – especially since it involved surveillance of the opposition party’s political campaigns. (Note the plural – I’ll betcha what the Obama administration was doing will be found to involve not just the Trump campaign, but other GOP campaigns as well.)

2. Taking the above into account, the Democrats clown car show of two dozen extremist candidates was viewed by the political movers and shakers as necessary window dressing to enable ol’ Joe Biden to ride to the rescue as someone who would be seen as more centrist and therefore more acceptable to Democrat voters in the upper Midwest who would otherwise sit the 2020 election out or vote Trump instead of radicals likes of Bernie Sanders, Kamala Harris, and Buttigieg.

3. Unfortunately, Biden’s campaign kicked off with a big yawn. Not only did Biden look as if he’d aged 100 years, but his reappearance on the national scene served a reminder of just how dopey he could be and how much of a ticking timebomb his campaign was. Heck, even progressives like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez had unflattering things to say about the prospect of an old white centrist like Biden representing the Party’s interests against Donald Trump.

4. As a result, the Democratic party elite started sending out feelers behind the scenes to Michelle Obama to see if she’d be interested in running.

5. The President hears about this. In my conspiracy theory he was willing to leave the declassification of documents to that associated with the 2016 campaign and the Mueller report’s timeframe, but in order to preempt any ideas of Moochelle getting any crazy ideas, he decided to order the declassification of everything – not just to show how dirty Joe Biden and his son are (hence, the Department of Energy’s inclusion), but also to show just how dirty the Obama administration was.

Anyways, that’s my conspiracy theory, and I’m sticking to it.

More as the weekend moseys along.
