“When the Democrats are in power, Republicans appear to be the conservative party. But when Republicans are in power, it seems there is no conservative party.” —Sen. Rand Paul

There is only ONE possible response to such a statement: Amen, brother. Amen…

The Irony Is Palpable…

6 February 2018

“The reason Congress is facing a 5th stop-gap budget bill is because the Republican majority is incompetent.” —Nancy Pelosi

Oh? So what does this make the democratic majority which couldn’t formulate a budget for six years? Why only six, you ask? Because there was a Republican majority in the House beginning with that seventh year, and you, Nancy, were ousted as speaker.

Nancy, thy very name is incompetence. Go stare at yourself in the mirror. If your image doesn’t terrify you into a deeper stupor than you seem to be in lately,  perhaps you can spend some time in quality introspection. Or, at least, get whatever that is from between your teeth. You know: that thing you were working at during the entire SOTU speech…

A very sad day, indeed…

30 January 2018

The House Intelligence Committee voted on Monday to release a classified memo circulating in Congress that reveals government surveillance abuses so severe that Watergate looks like a civil infraction. The vote to release the document was on party lines; i.e, no democrat voted for its release.

“(A) very sad day, I think, in the history of this committee.” – Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA)

It begs the question: why would NONE of the democrats on the committee vote to make such abuses public? One would think that exposing these highly illegal practices publicly, and excoriating the perpetrators would serve to help curb any future enthusiasm for similar abuses. One would think that evidence that such abuses occurred, but are being swiftly and appropriately dealt with would bolster public trust in the government.

Oh, wait. It all occurred under their watch; under a democrat administration.  An historic democrat administration which saw the first mixed-race president in office. An historic democrat administration already infamous for its abuses of power and extra-Constitutional activities. An historic democrat administration which worked to destroy our system of healthcare, eliminate any hope of energy independence, destroyed our country’s prestige abroad, pandered to – and funded – sponsors of islamic terror, and decimated our economy. An historic democrat administration which vilified law enforcement, and set race relations back to the dark ages. And now, with these revelations: an historic democrat administration which oversaw an abuse of government law enforcement faculties never before seen in this country.

Now I understand. It is indeed a sad, sad day in which politicians continue to protect their party at the expense of their country. Thank you for making that clear to me, Rep. Schiff.

Golly! I feel safer already! Thanks, Nancy!

“People don’t understand — the one problem I think the current occupant of the White House — they don’t understand that sanctuary cities is [sic] what helps law enforcement. It helps public safety.” —Nancy Pelosi

Nancy, Nancy, Nancy… The only way sanctuary cities help law enforcement is by concentrating illegal aliens in one area for ICE to round up – which, by the way: you oppose, and which is contrary to why sanctuary cities exit. I can conceive of no possible way in which sanctuary cities helps public safety. How did it help Officer Don Johnston? Jill Sundberg?  Kate Steinle? How about those robbed by illegal aliens? Raped by them? Assaulted by them? Injured or killed in traffic accidents with them?

You see, Nancy, if they weren’t here none would have been injured by them! Sanctuary cities merely enable them to remain here and exposes US citizens – those you are sworn to protect by your oath of office – to potential harm by them.

Now, don’t get me wrong: I don’t for a minute believe that every individual who comes into this country illegally is a criminal in any other way than having broken our immigration rules (noting, of course, that they are criminals within the US simply by breaking our immigration laws); however, there simply is a disproportionate number of illegal aliens incarcerated for violent crimes than for other populations within the country.

And it’s unfair to expel illegal aliens? Excuse me?! I agree that the children of illegals are in this country usually by no choice of their own; however, that does not make it my responsibility to make them whole in any way. There are MANY of our citizens who do not have it anywhere as good as a lot of these illegals. Take care of those you swore to protect first. Then worry about those outside; but only those who follow our laws to get here. We uproot invasive species along our highways universally – we don’t leave the seedlings because they were here through no fault of their own.

Also, the US Constitution applies to US citizens. Those who are not US citizens absolutely do not have constitutional rights. They must be treated as laid out in international law, but they do not have citizenship conferred upon them just because they managed to get on your side of the border.

A parting question: I wonder how many US citizens living within these sanctuary cities support the designation? Or were these designated through political fiat only?

Uh-huh…

“I woke up this morning in Hawaii with ten minutes to live. It was a false alarm, but a real psychic warning. If we allow this one-man Gomorrah and his corrupt Republican congress to continue alienating the world we are headed for suffering beyond all imagination.” —actor Jim Carrey

Uh-huh. Sure. The idiot that triggered the alarm in Hawaii had nothing to do with it. The li’l fat boy in NK, Kim Jong-un, would NEVER have thought about obtaining nuclear weapons and threatening the US if Trump wasn’t in office. Yup.

Well, for the record, if you need to blame someone other than whatever numbnuts triggered the alarm, the true “blame” sits firmly on Ol’ Billy-Bob Clinton for playing with oddly flavored cigars rather than pushing back on NK when he should have. And, also for the record: actors, comedians, etc. are only considered “leaders” by the left. The rest of us see you only as entertainers, and really don’t place a lot of value on any opinions you might have, which is to say: no more value than placed on any other person who is not in position to really know anything about which they speak.  And, a final point for the record: just because you have a microphone doesn’t mean you’re right.

So, Mr. Carrey: please go back to Canada and Prime Minister Centerfold who, like Obama, makes huge payouts to terrorists while ignoring his own people. Your acting, all the way back to “In Living Color”, has always been over-the-top histrionics – not to say I haven’t enjoyed some of it –  so I’m not surprised that your opinion would be, too. Please go home. Your far-left PM needs your support, and we have all the natural-born leftists we need.

ANYTHING to detract…

12 January 2018

Libtards! Libtards! Calm yourselves! A country or a continent are not races. Haiti is, in fact, a shit hole. As is the majority of Africa. Also much of the middle east, Asia, and huge swaths of Europe. The worst places in the US look like resort towns compared to the majority of the remaining world. Find something substantive to focus your angst upon – like all the damage your beloved Previous Occupant did to the black community, race relations, our economy, and our standing within the world. Please! You’re embarrassing yourselves…

Ladies, ladies…

9 January 2018

It strikes me funny that all the “ladies” in Hollywood are on an all-out, no-holds-barred crusade against sexual misconduct by the men around them, and then they parade around in such modest garments as these:

 

Now, no-one can say that they are not right to pursue and purge such deviants; however, the manner in which one dresses DOES, whether you wish to acknowledge it or not, drive certain opinions and attitudes regarding the person wearing said garments. For instance, someone dressed like this:

bum

is likely a bum, and will most likely ask you for a handout. Someone dressed like this:

gs

is likely a girl scout, and will try to sell you cookies.

What are YOU dressed like, Hollywood ladies?

It’s not all true…

5 January 2018

So, Michael Wolff, author of the liberals’ much beloved Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump Whitehouse admits that it is comprised of unverifiable heresay -further: that he, himself, believes many of his sources to have been lying, but produced it anyway, “allowing the reader to judge” the veracity of the content.

This would be unbelievable if not for the unmistakable parallel to the journalistic practices on display for the last quarter century or so. What is remarkable is that such a work carrying such a statement within its own pages would not be listed under “fiction”.

Both the author and his publisher are, in my unlearned opinion, guilty of libel for promulgating such as fact. Apparently, the President’s lawyers think so, too.

Go get ’em, Mr. Trump.

The genius of (past) progressives

24 December 2017

As I read articles regarding charities protesting the tax legislation recently signed into law, I am in awe of the genius of the progressives, now long dead, who foisted the progressive income tax upon us. Mind you, these progressives are long dead – none of the machinations of the current breed of progressive can compare to the forethought and intricacies of their past masters.

I mean: think about it. They put something into the tax code to turn charities – churches, and the like – into instruments by which to prevent their masterpiece from being dismantled! Rather than expecting that people are charitable by nature, giving of their excess, they have been jaded by a century of “charitable deductions” to believe that their life’s blood is a gift from government rather than a gift from their donors.

Shear genius.

Tavis Smiley is not smiling…

14 December 2017

Well. PBS followed the new liberal moral signalling rules. The same rules that were just applied to Judge Roy Moore. Apparently, they’re a rogue cannon, taking down liberals as well as the enemies of the liberals: Tavis Smiley, accused of sexual misconduct – ACCUSED, mind you – has had broadcast of his show indefinitely suspended.

My how they SCREAM when their “dirty tricks” are applied to themselves! This would actually be entertaining, if it wasn’t for the despicable violation of presumption of innocence we all are entitled to and expect. However, this expectation is only relevant when applied to the government; the private sector is not encumbered with such things. As we’ve repeatedly seen during this last quarter century, the MSM and many employers have no responsibility to  (nor regard for, in the case of the MSM) the truth, and, as demonstrated again and again, have no qualms regarding the destruction visited upon anyone’s life by the reliance on innuendo and hearsay.

The left is feeding upon their own to build a case in the mind of the public that they are taking the higher ground. That they will turn in their own because they are better than the other side. Building this portfolio of sexual predators ousted by the haloed democrats, they can turn like the triffids they are and point and screech at the likes of Donald Trump. This activity, reminiscent of Nazi Germany and the Soviet Union when family and neighbors were coaxed to turn in their friends and relatives for alleged violations of the law, no matter how minor or contrived, to show they were good Nazis or Communists, is intended to set the stage for a Trump impeachment and/or for the 2018 elections. Te impeachment, at least currently, is a pipe dream. And, hopefully, those who vote will continue to see through it, and prevent their party’s resurgence.

In the meantime: the ends justify the means, hey Tavis? Except when you’re one of the means…
