The Weekly 2020 Update: Shitlibs lost their minds

It's truly been a lousy week to be an establishment Democrat.

But as bad as all that was, things got worse.

A few days ago, after Hillary Clinton projectile-vomited at Tulsi Gabbard and Jill Stein, #TulsiIsARussianAsset was a trend.  This despite the fact that Gabbard holds the rank of major in the Hawaii Army National Guard and serves on both the House Armed Services Committee and the House Foreign Affairs Committee, which means she likely holds one of the highest security clearances available to any American.

It is not only ludicrous but defamatory -- and I would hope libelous -- for anyone to question Gabbard's patriotism in so vile a manner.  This sort of smear has been modus operandi toward Jill Stein for several years, as everyone knows.  And just when we thought the fever had broken ... this morning, after Gabbard announced she would not seek re-election to her Congressional seat, #TulsiStein becomes a trending topic.

I have plenty of issues with Gabbard now after previously being a supporter earlier this year.  But Gabbard has said repeatedly she won't go third party, and many states have 'sore loser' laws preventing that anyway.  Let me suggest that Hillary Clinton allowing her rumor mill to to expel some foul grist that she might run for president next year is a greater threat to Democratic hopes of winning the White House than anything else that could possibly occur.

If Clinton actually does run (and I don't think she is masochistic enough to do so; Hillary is more of a sadist, after all) her votes deny front-runner No Dough Biden and/or No Plan For That Yet Warren the nomination.  This would be a godsend for my candidate.  She does not take one single vote away from Bernie Sanders.  So maybe I ought to be cheering for her to throw her big fat hat in.

Sorry, no can do.  It's just a scam for people to buy her book.  But if you'd like to go see her tonight at U of H and maybe ask her, tickets are $38.  She's over before she gets started anyway.

There were plenty of other items to blog about, namely:

-- Why the polling leader fails to draw any crowds to his (very infrequent) rallies, or raise any money, such that he has to break his promise and start looking at organizing a SuperPAC;

-- Why the other polling leader still cannot answer how she is going fund her healthcare proposal, and that it may be weeks before she can;

-- The guy that the establishment hates drew 30,000 to a rally last weekend, raised $600,000 in the hours before, during, and after (average contribution $15), and released a plan to legalize cannabis and expunge the criminal records of those convicted of possessing it ... at 4:20 p.m. yesterday;

-- Some guy dropped out;

(Before you say, "That's Michael Bennet", click and read the thread.  It's worth it.)

-- And I'm sure something obnoxious was said and done by Amy Klobuchar and Pete Buttigieg, but I just don't care to link to it.

Not to be outdone in this regard, there's also an escalation of the infighting among Green Party presidential candidates.

And maybe the name 'Don Blankenship' rings a bell for you.  If not, here you go.

The Constitution Party’s national committee held a meeting in Pittsburgh, PA on October 18-19, 2019. One of the speakers was Don Blankenship, former CEO of Massey Energy Company, the sixth largest coal company in the nation. Blankenship told the group that he will seek the party’s presidential nomination next year. He was the party’s nominee for U.S. Senate in West Virginia in 2018, but he was unable to get on the ballot because of the “sore loser” law.

Blankenship is currently suing Donald Trump, Jr., for libel. Trump Jr. had tweeted that Blankenship is an ex-felon, but Blankenship was never convicted of a felony. He was convicted of a misdemeanor in 2016 involving mine safety rules. The libel case is in U.S. District Court in West Virginia, Blankenship v Trump, Jr., s.d., 2:19cv-549. His lawsuit recently survived a motion to dismiss. A trial is set for October 6, 2020.
