Bacon battle…

leave a comment »

PETA is so out of touch with the universe that it veers between pathetic and ludicrous.   This time it challenged people to present their best argument for eating bacon.   People love bacon,  so of course this has backfired like  mad.

Can Palin win?

leave a comment »

Robert Barnes has an  interesting take  on whether former Alaska Governor and Vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin can prevail in her libel lawsuit against the New York Times,  which recently accused of being directly responsible for the shooting of former Congresswoman Gabby Giffords.

I’m now rather hopeful that the paper’s long string of successful defenses against libel litigation may come to an end,  which I would enjoy doubly because of the effect Palin has on liberals.

UPDATE:  More from  the Washington Post and  from FOX  News.

The real collusion…

leave a comment »

…all belongs to the Obama Administration.    Daniel John Sobieski  lays it out for  you,  from the felonious conduct of former FBI director,  James Come,  to Loretta Lynch’s meeting with Bill Clinton and efforts to make sure Hillary suffered no real legal consequences for her multiple violations of half a dozen federal laws. to the sudden hiding of records pertaining to Susan Rice and her unmasking of U.S. citizens in intelligence reports.

 All you Obama-lovers out there should remember the root cause of all this hot mess is the same man who told FOX News there wasn’t a hint of scandal in the IRS or anywhere else in his administration,   and the same man who assured a top Russian official he’d have  “more flexibility” after the election, and the same man who repeatedly said  “If you like your doctor,  you can keep your doctor” while extolling the virtues of ObamaCare, especially the lowered costs and better coverage,  none of which was ever even remotely true.
The Obama Administration was full of individuals who lied and colluded to fool the American people, and have continued to lie and obstruct to avoid just and due prosecution for their crimes.   Add to this the misconduct of the FBI and various Obama officials  in the witch-hunt  of Gen. Mike Flynn and you get a sense of how deep and wide the rot is.

The real resistance…

leave a comment »

From the front lines in California,  a first-hand  report on  a Maxine Waters townhall,  where she tried to keep people out,  then tried to escape from them.   It will be interesting to see if the reliably lefty L.A. Times characterizes the bullhorns and boos as anarchists at work.

Trump ends it…

leave a comment »

His Oneness held an Iftaar dinner all eight years he occupied the Oval Office.   Clinton and Bush made the same useless gesture Obama did.   Ramadan ended Saturday night  without an  Iftaar dinner or any other White House celebration of Islam’s holy month,  which has become an excuse for jihadists to unleash brutality and violence upon anyone who believes Islam is a religion of peace and disagrees with their practice of it.

Good for President Trump for not only having the intelligence to realize the futility of the gesture,  seen as slavering weakness and appeasement by jihadists,  but also for not succumbing to the timidity of political correctness which would have stopped a lesser man from ending the celebrations.   All this White House did was release a short statement in recognition of Eid al-Fitr.   The State Department did the same.

D.C. has rats…

leave a comment »

I’m speaking of the  four-legged  variety,  though there is certainly an abundance of the two-legged type as well.   New York City had a rat population explosion a few years back,  and it turned out that so many of the immigrants living there came from cultures where municipal trash collection was a largely unknown experience that most of them did what they had done in their previous homes –  threw the trash where they pleased.  I have no idea whether D.C. has that many immigrants,  but from having lived there for a couple of years,   I can tell you that,  as in New Orleans,  money can purchase blindness and ignorance.

It’s about time…

leave a comment »

Baltimore businesses are  finally suing  most of the city of Baltimore, including former mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake, and the police department for letting the Freddie Gray rioters destroy their properties.

Baltimore is run by black progressives,  who do not look with favor upon the Second Amendment since they much prefer subjects to citizens.   Quick,  name a city run by black progressives to which ordinary citizens are flocking because it’s a great place to live and work….
