Friday morning’s Labor Department report shows that a whopping 273,000 jobs were created in February, blowing away the 175,000 number economists predicted (this was before fears of the coronavirus spooked markets.) The unemployment rate ticked back down to 3.5%, tying a half-century low. Average hourly earnings also rose by 9 cents over the past year to $28.52.

And now, the same news reported by Democrat Presidential candidates: “The hellish Trump economy continued in February, proving that Trump’s policies only benefit the rich and just aren’t working for the working classes…”

I already pointed out that Michael Bloomberg’s bonfire of an estimated 500 to 700 million campaign dollars (environmentalists are blaming him for global warming) should put a definitive end to all the liberals whining about billionaires being able to buy elections, along with their attempts to pass “campaign finance reform laws” that curtail constitutionally-protected political speech.

At the link, Mollie Hemingway of the Federalist makes another excellent point: if $600 million worth of “Mike Can Get It Done” ads blanketing every flat surface in America couldn’t win Bloomberg anything other than the primary in American Samoa, how in the heck did $200,000 worth of Facebook ads most people never saw tilt the 2016 national election to Trump?

https://thefederalist.com/2020/03/05/hemingway-if-bloomberg-couldnt-buy-2020-how-could-russia-buy-2016/

Bloomberg’s faceplant should finally put a stop to the three years of whining from the left about the 2016 election being “stolen” for Trump by Russia. It should, but since their political beliefs are impervious to evidence, it won’t.

------------------------------------

Democrats Behaving Badly: There seems to be an unwritten rule in Washington that if a Republican commits the slightest infraction, there are major investigations and federal charges; but when Democrats do something genuinely outrageous or even criminal, the media response is to attack Republicans for responding so negatively to it. It’s called the “Republicans pounce” narrative.

This week, the Democratic water carriers in the media are reporting that the Republicans pounced on Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, just for standing outside the Supreme Court and threatening Justices Kavanaugh and Gorsuch by name if they didn’t rule the way Schumer wants on a landmark abortion case. Schumer has already gone through the two stages of contrition for a Democrat:

1. Send out a flunky to deny he said what we all heard him say and blame it on Republicans.

2. If that doesn’t make it go away, admit you made a poor choice of words, but don’t actually apologize because you’re still right in principle, it was just that those horrible Republicans made you so understandably passionate that you got carried away (it’s their fault, really.)

https://www.westernjournal.com/schumer-admits-not-used-words-used-yesterday-blames-republicans/

It’s possible, however, that in this case, Schumer’s infraction was too far beyond-the-pale. Even Chief Justice Roberts, liberal law professors, the American Bar Association, Judge Andre Napolitano, and TDS sufferer George Conway “pounced” and joined in the criticism – although, naturally, Conway blamed Trump for Schumer’s rant. Schumer was even condemned by his own words from three weeks ago.

https://www.foxnews.com/politics/scher-last-month-condemned-trump-for-attacking-federal-judge

I doubt this will lead to Schumer being forced to resign his office, as it would for a Republican, or to face a federal investigation and possible charges, as it would for any regular American. But maybe Senate Republicans will stiffen their spines enough at least to censure him for it. I doubt that if Schumer weren’t afraid that’s a possibility that he ever would have progressed to step two above.

------------------------

Meanwhile, in a minor-league version of the Schumer imbroglio, former DNC Chairwoman Donna Brazile is still refusing to apologize for telling Republican Party Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel to “go to Hell” live on Fox News, after McDaniel suggested that the DNC was attempting to stop Bernie Sanders from winning the nomination. Brazile also accused McDaniel of repeating “Russian talking points.”

When later given a chance to retract after cooling off, Ms. Brazile still refused to apologize for “speaking truth to power” but said she was “a forgiving person.” An odd claim, considering she’s the one who told McDaniel to go to Hell.

https://www.westernjournal.com/2-fox-stars-gave-donna-brazile-lesson-manners-outrageous-go-comment/

The true spirit of forgiveness was shown by McDaniel, who shrugged it off by saying, “Politics is a contact sport.” But she got in a subtle dig by saying she understands, if she were a Democrat, she’d be in a bad mood, too. And she finished with a very polite mic drop by pointing out that the claim that the DNC works secretly to deny the nomination to Bernie isn’t a Russian talking point. It came out of the book Donna Brazile wrote about the 2016 election.

---------------------------

The Daily Mail has some exclusive quotes from the new Hillary Clinton “documentary” on Hulu, and if there’s an Emmy Award for Self-Deceiving Obliviousness, I think we’ve already got this year’s winner.

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-8079693/Im-investigated-innocent-person-America-Hillary-Clinton-snaps-documentary.html

For the record: No, Hillary, you are not “the most investigated innocent person in America.” You’re more like the least-seriously investigated obviously guilty person in America. After enduring two years of a $30+ million investigation run by his worst enemies who still couldn’t find any evidence of “Russian Collusion” – an investigation based on garbage oppo research paid for by Hillary Clinton’s campaign – I’d say that Donald Trump deserves the title of “Most Investigated Innocent Person in America.”

Also, for the record: YES, there certainly IS a rule about not using an unsecured private email server when you’re Secretary of State. Maybe if she’d shown up for the mandatory orientation or the required regular refresher briefings, she would have known that. But I have a feeling it still wouldn’t have made her care.

    Let’s do some more math: if Bloomberg has 50 billion total wealth, he spent five percent of it—about like a typical middle class person spending $10,000 down payment on a new economy car. The left thinks their socialist plans can be paid for by taxing the rich. Please consider that confiscating 50 billion (Bloomberg’s entire wealth) would only cover 5 percent of what will be added to the deficit in 2020. Please correct me if I’m wrong, but it sure doesn’t seem like taxing the rich will cover even a fraction of the added costs of their grandiose schemes.

    If Hilary stated that she is “the most investigated innocent person in America, " it goes to show if you lie enough you lose all sense of reality

    AND you are right when you state that Hillary is "the least-seriously investigated obviously guilty person in America" because, just the other day, I raised the question, in my comment, about how come after Benghazi ....and another incident that Hilary was involved in.....the investigation stopped since there were deaths involved in both situations!
