Big deal…

Of course the U.N. voted to condemn the U.S. embargo against Cuba.  Why does anyone with a pair of still-functioning gray cells give a damn  what the  U.N. thinks?     It is an expensive waste of taxpayer monies,  spent by a motley crew of corrupt snots who  hate the USA and everything America stands for.

Hard Rock Hotel collapse…

leave a comment »

The Hard Rock Hotel was  under construction  at Canal St. and N. Rampart.   It appears parts of the top six to eight floors have collapsed,  with an unknown number of injured and dead.   In this day and age,  there is no excuse for this type of building collapse,  but do remember that New Orleans is a port city,  historically filled with corruption at every level.   I think it more likely that we will learn that corruption allowed shortcuts and illegalities which led to this horror.

Would this not…

…make the most wonderful  campaign poster?   I’d love to see it plastered on billboards across the country.  The words are literally true.   You should remember Sen. Chuck Schumer’s not-so-veiled warning that if you go after the intel community it has many ways to come after you.   He was correct,  of course,  but I don’t think for a moment that Pres. Trump didn’t understand this precisely,  and he was willing to charge into it anyway.  When he hired William Barr as Attorney General,  I suspected this was the case.   Barr left a very lucrative and comfortable private practice to help Trump clean up the Swamp, and her had no illusions about the hornet’s nests he would be kicking over.

Trump is volunteering to continue standing in the way of the anti-freedom,  America-hating Democrats.  Help make it possible for him to do so.

I so enjoy…

…watching someone throw Rev. Al Sharpton’s racist,  corrupt,  bigoted  past in  his face.   That Rep. Matt Gaetz delivered this history lesson in front of the House Judiciary Committee made it even better.   I’m a bit surprised Chairman Nadler didn’t have a stroke to go along with his meltdown.

The dead are a constituency…

…in Illinois.   You have long known you can still vote Democrat if you’re dead.   Now you can  also get  your medical bills paid,  apparently,  though I confess to being very puzzled about what services you could possibly need.

Labor Day, 2019…

leave a comment »

Bill Federer renders an interesting lesson on the rather  murky history  of this holiday.   Few younger people today will be aware of any of the true history,  having been told only that labor unions benefit workers despite the efforts of the big bad corporations and business owners.   I know this history, and the communist and socialist leaning of its leaders.  I also know that the unions originally did much good for the workers,  but are now run for political power and the enrichment of the leaders.  Have you ever seen a union boss who was trim and fit and NOT wearing a suit that cost more than your monthly salary?   Heck, their wrist watches often cost more than I made in a year.   Eugene Debs was an exception,  but he was a founder,  not a boss,  of the Social Democracy of America (1897),  the Social Democratic Party of America (1898),  and the Socialist Party of America (1901).   Presidential candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders produced a documentary praising Debs in 1979,  hung a portrait of him in the City Hall of Burlington, Vermont,  and dedicated a plaque to him in his Congressional office.

The Left has a workers holiday on May Day,  originally an ancient pagan day of fertility,  which was culturally expropriated by the Socialist,  Anarchist, and Communist parties of Europe,  the United States, and elsewhere as a tool of class warfare – a day to teach workers they are the enemies of bourgeois companies,  and to celebrate the coming destruction of capitalism.   That’s one reason Labor Day is celebrated in September.   Unions are  still a racket  to extort dues from members, which are then fed into Democratic coffers so that the merry-go-round of dues/money/power/ favors can be kept afloat.  Since unions can no longer legally take union dues,  Democrats are trying  to change  all the rules,  and I promise you more violence is coming because no one on the Left has any qualms about using that means to achieve a goal.

In Chicago,  it’s the customary round  of shootings  in a city with very strict gun laws.

Back to unions for a moment, it appears the well-documented corruption of the United Auto Workers has led to the first group  being sentenced to prison,  and  after raids  at six locations found more evidence,  the government is considering RICO charges.   That would mean UAW would be charged  as a criminal conspiracy.  A conviction under the statute could lead to government takeover of the union  as happened to the Teamsters thirty years ago.   It’s somewhat complicated,  but  this article  does a good job of explaining the whys and wherefores.   Always remember that unions ultimately destroy the goose laying those golden eggs.

I’m unsure as to what union leaders were thinking when  they deployed  communist sympathizer and traitor Jane Fonda in an AFL-CIO T-shirt last weekend to knock on doors and push swing voters in Pennsylvania to dump Trump.  I am pretty certain the aging Lefty will not result in  a landslide for the Democratic candidate.

In contrast,  see President Trump’s  proclamation  for the day, honoring the  “greatest labor force in the world.”

Disinfect with sunshine…

The Obama Administration operated largely in the dark,  just as His Oneness did himself.   “Look at this pretty,  shiny thing!”  the press team would exclaim whilst the drudges did the real dirty work behind the scenes.   If Trump actually does release  these three  documents,  the entire Obama Administration and the Clinton Machine will have a lot of explaining to try to do.   The media will turn themselves into pretzels assisting them but people with common sense and logic won’t be buying any of what they sell.

Sunlight truly is a superior disinfectant.  Louis Brandeis is credited with that thought, but it actually  came from  a book.
