Go home, Jorge…

leave a comment »

I would be thrilled if the reports of illegal immigration activist Jorge Ramos actually wanting  to return  to his native Mexico were true.  I hope Univision reassigns him to Mexico,  and that he stays there.  He has caused quite enough trouble in his long career here of being on television a lot and keeping foreigners from assimilating.  However,  he is now a U.S. citizen,  so what will he say if Mexico’s much stricter immigration laws keep him out of his native country?  Don Surber suggests he  just sneak in,  as so many of his country men have here.

Stormy fizzles…

leave a comment »

As I watched this  boring episode  of 60 Minutes,  I was reminded of Geraldo Rivera’s embarrassing discovery of Al Capone’s vault — lots of dust and dirt,  nothing of substance.   And then I got curious.   Didn’t Stormy Daniels signa couple of statements saying she had not had any dealings with Trump?  When do we believe her?   Then?  Now?  How about never?  Why were her pupils dilated?

Now I’m just bored and somewhat amused that the  same media  who told us repeatedly that Lewinsky,  Juanita Broaddrick ,  and Jones were irrelevant to Bill Clinton now scream that a prostitute with scant credibility must be regarded as a paragon of truth so we must acknowledge the utter wickedness of Donald J. Trump.  Has Trump committed adultery?  Yeah,  but it only counts because he’s a Republican.  What about JFK,  LBJ and Bill Clinton,  who were all horndogs of the first water?   Do I wish Trump behaved better?     Of course,  but he is mostly trying to keep his campaign promises.  I’d be happier if the squishes who swing on the Congressional teat would develop a bit of backbone and help.

But now we see what Stormy  is really  after…

Cadbury Easter…

leave a comment »

After getting whacked last year,  British chocolatier Cadbury  is back  to its century-old tradition of using “Easter” in its advertising.  I’m happy to see this reversion to tradition,  and a stand against the anti-Christian barkers.  I’m also pleased because Cadbury makes delicious chocolate which I can now resume enjoying!

Salting the air…

leave a comment »

The latest geoengineering  theory says  that placing a large amount of salt into the air will stop climate change.   There’s little science behind it,  and of course they haven’t gotten around to thinking about what salty rain will do to plants…..

But global warming isn’t about science, and it isn’t about the Earth, and it’s about humans only to the extent that it can be used to control people.  The ordinary folks who believe in global warming have seldom managed any plot of land larger than a 6 inch flower pot.  They know little of nature and nothing of real science.   You would be smarter to step in front of a speeding train than to take advice from any of them.

Remington files for bankruptcy…

leave a comment »

The famous gunmaker’s troubles started  with a  lawsuit by the families of the victims of the Sandy Hook shooting.   The suit was tossed by one court but the idiots at the Connecticut Supreme Court  are still considering it instead of following the lower court’s logical reasoning and tossing the suit.   That is what happens when judges function as activists and forget their job,  which is to follow the laws.

Many gun manufacturers built up too large a supply,  anticipating hillary’s ascension to the throne, but that was just one more nail in Remington’s coffin.  It is still too early to tell whether another Remington firearm will ever be produced.  Fortunately,  I have one already,  along with a century-old Winchester rifle,  both of which may someday pay for a relative’s college tuition….

UPDATE:  Remington has received  a lifeline  — let’s hope it  is successful.

Baking cookies…

leave a comment »

The press is a disgrace.  It fell all over itself going along with the scheme of  Our Lady of Perpetual Dissatisfaction to portray herself as a gardener  (yeah, Michelle admitted to the scheme part recently),  even though those of us who do garden realized quickly she was in a series of poses for the cameras rather than actually gardening,  and she never learned a blasted thing about any aspect of it.  You do recall that her garden  was ruined when the government was shut down, since she and her daughters were not about to get their own hands dirty tending it?

But I digress.  Two young girls from Maryland wanted to bake cookies for Mr. Trump,  and ended up doing do in the White House kitchen with First lady Melania Trump,  resulting in some  sweet photos,  which the First lady wisely chose to share on Instagram and Twitter rather than hoping the press would do something other than predict her marriage was crumbling,  her husband would be indicted, and the government would soon collapse.

Super-group forming…

leave a comment »

I appreciate the courage  and tenacity of whistleblowers,  but I am especially in awe of those former Justice Department,  FBI,  and intelligence community officials who  mean to expose  the illegality and shady tactics.

Many years ago I lived in D.C. for a couple of years.   A relative who worked on the Hill helped me get a close up view of the sausage being made and it wa not a pretty sight.   I’m sure it’s much,  much worse now,  and there are few people with the guts to turn on the lights so the rest of us can see the cockroaches scurrying away.  When I was in D.C. I made friends with a group of people investigating the many tunnels in the area.  I learned a tremendous amount about the structures there,  and nearly as much about people.   I can tell you that the Deep State does exist,  and it is very dangerous,  even to the average citizen.  Every member of this supergroups is placing themselves and their families in jeopardy.  I hope they learned enough in the former jobs to protect themselves.

Zell Miller, R.I.P.

leave a comment »

Zell Miller  wanted to  be a minor league shortstop,  but his baseball dreams turned into  the governorship of Georgia and a Senator from Georgia.   He was also a Marine,  a college professor and even wrote some songs.   He was the only politician I can think of who was a keynote speaker at both the Democratic and the Republican National Conventions.

Miller was about the last of the old-fashioned Democrats,  who by the radicalized standards of today’s Democratic party would be quite conservative,  but he was above all a man who not only actually had principles,  but didn’t waver from them.  And he was a civil man who nonetheless didn’t suffer from an excess of political correctness.

Having been in failing health in recent years,  Miller had been out of the spotlight,  and I have missed his pungent,  reality-based commentary.   He will be sorely missed.

Merkel mess…

leave a comment »

Like Hillary,  Angela Merkel doesn’t know when to shut up.   She won her fourth term as Chancellor despite having nearly destroyed her country with a ruinous immigration policy over the past twelve years.   Entire towns have been taken over by the immigrants she has welcomed,  and she simply ignores the fact that her own citizens are being robbed,  raped and killed by some of those same immigrants.

Most Germans are not allowed  to own  guns,  and the penalty for breaking the laws is quite severe.   Despite this, ordinary citizens are traveling to other countries and purchasing firearms to protect their families from the Muslim gangs terrorizing their neighborhoods.  This is first hand information from people I know who have friends and family there,  living in fear.

Now Merkel is trying  to keep  the insane Obama/Kerry Iran deal in place.  I grant you that Germans don’t have a stellar track record when it comes to selecting their leaders, but they won’t have a country left if they don’t come to their senses.   Meanwhile,  does Merkel actually believe that warning Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to keep hands off the Iran deal, or else, is going to (a) intimidate Netanyahu, or  (b) change President Trump’s mind?

UPDATE:  Frau Merkel just admitted that her nation has  no-go zones,  a fact stoutly denied by most media everywhere.

More lying…

leave a comment »

Did you believe former Attorney General Loretta Lynch when she claimed that all she and former President Bill Clinton discussed in their private meeting on the airport tarmac was golf and grandchildren?   I suspect you did not for even a nano-second,  because you are not only smarter than that,  you also probably don’t trust the government any more than I do.

And man, were we correct!   Thanks to the indefatigable folks at Judicial Watch,  we have learned that the FBI under Jim Comey  coordinated all the logistics and security for the meeting of those two high-level people.

There is also a report that a tape exists of the meeting,  but NSA refuses to release it.
