They ain’t woke…

leave a comment »

Maxine Waters,  the frighteningly ignorant Congresswoman from California  —  oh, wait — that’s California’s 43rd Congressional district.   She routinely makes an ass of herself on the floor of the House.  It’s confusing,  because she  is one  of at least five California representatives who does not live in the district she represents,  which has the second highest percentage of African-American residents in the state.  Where she actually resides is only 6% back residents.

I cannot fathom why she keeps getting re-elected by people who actually live in Inglewood, which is where the district is.   I also wonder how she can afford a 6,000-square foot,  multi-million dollar mansion after having spent the last 40 years working in government?  Her excuse is that her home used to be in District 43.

When she isn’t demanding Pres. Trump’s impeachment at the top of her lungs,  she is urging people to stay “woke”  and claiming how much millennials listen to her.  It may be that the shiny has worn off the relationship, as this well-publicized campaign event  shows only  a handful of attendees of any age.

Queen Sheila…

leave a comment »

United Airlines  has apologized  to the customer whose seat they gave away to Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee,  who is always high on the list of the most unpleasant people on the planet.  But not even a $500 travel voucher to the passenger is sufficient to make up for the airline’s cowardice in the face of the arrogance and greed of the  Congressional battleaxe.

Of course the only airline ever to stand up to Lee’s  repeated bad  behavior no longer exists,  making the rest especially wary.  The woman is a characterless clump of dumb,  but she does wield real power,  despite blaming the current situation,  entirely of her own making,  on racism.  Shame on her constituents who keep voting her back into office instead of throwing her ass to the curb where it belongs.

Fake stories, real leaks…

leave a comment »

Read this  slowly and carefully.   Assuming the Conservative Treehouse is correct,  and I have no reason to think otherwise,  we now possibly know who at least one of the leakers is.   I was paying attention a while back when when Attorney General Jeff Sessions and Director of National Intelligence Dan Coates said they were forming a counterintelligence unit to identify the leakers.

House Intelligence Committee Minority Chairman Adam Schiff apparently wasn’t listening,  since he may have been the one caught leaking through his apparatchik colleagues at CNN.  It’s pretty much a classic intel move.  You would think that,  as a member of the Gang of Eight,  Rep. Schiff would have been aware of it and would have recognized it.    The Go8 has oversight of every U.S. covert intelligence operation around the world,  and oversee the NSA,  CIA,  FBI,  DNI,  and every single intelligence unit and operation.

The worms are beginning to turn,  but  not many are  noticing yet,  even amongst the supposedly  smart media…..

What wimps!

So out of all the current and former female members of Congress only Mary Bono,  a Republican,  had the stones and the sense to confront the man harassing her?   And you sheeple expect your female Congress critters to fight for you when they won’t even  fight for  themselves except to secure a permanent feeding place at the government trough?

The Comey show…

leave a comment »

…threw some dirt on President Trump in some respects,  but showed Democrats and MSM to be liars.    More importantly,  the former FBI director’s true colors were on full display, and they weren’t very pretty,  despite his efforts to play the victim card.   Read Michael Goodwin’s excellent  commentary here.

I have long regarded Jim Comey with suspicion,  along with a number of intel bosses,  but I can’t say that being proven right,  repeatedly,  gives me any great pleasure.   How can I be expected to take seriously a man who indicted Hillary Clinton in public and then declined to charge her,  and was so unaware of the federal code that he could not find any law that Hillary broke when I could find a dozen without a law degree?   Comey willingly turned himself into a political hack and apparently thought his possession of secrets and the fear their potential  disclosure engendered made him as secure as J. Edgar Hoover.

Jim Bunning, R.I.P.

leave a comment »

Hall of Fame pitcher and former Senator Jim Bunning  died this  week,  after suffering a stroke last fall.   He was as blunt and tenacious in Congress as he had been on the athletic field,  but I expect he was always prouder of his perfect games in baseball than of his service in Congress.

Mike Lee lets loose…

leave a comment »

Sen. Mike Lee posts a video rant against  Congress here.   It is an epic twelve-mionute rant against the way funding has been done,  and he’s absolutely right.
