You get what you vote for…

leave a comment »

If you are so unfortunate as to live in a city run by Democrats,  you get riots and destruction.    John Nolte lays it all out for  you here.    And like Nolte,  I tend to think that those who keep voting Democrats into office deserve the disasters they voted for.   Those who voted for a better alternative don’t deserve to be dragged through all the chaos and mayhem,  but I sincerely hope they band together and vote the SOB’s out of office.

I would advise that they then run them out of the county,  and then the state,  but I want none of them landing within 500 miles of me.   That would include the staggeringly  stupid Fairfax  County Democratic Committee in Virginia, which tweeted:  “…Riots are an integral part of this country’s march towards progress.”   It scrubbed the tweet,  but some clever patriot grabbed a screen shot which will live on despite the deletion.

Just stock models?

leave a comment »

Democratic strategist Joel Payne  insinuated on  a CBS interview that the two back people wearing the Trump campaign’s new  ‘you ain’t black’  T-shirts were probably just paid models.    Turns out they are actually staffers for the ‘Black Voices for Trump’ coalition:   Harrison Floyd, the executive director of ‘Black Voices for Trump’,  and Gail Wilson, the deputy executive director,  who had some fun responding to him.   I suspect the entire situation has,  at least temporarily,   wiped the smirk off Payne’s face,  which isn’t nearly as appealing as either of the T-shirt models.

License to lie…

leave a comment »

Dr. Rick Bright  is not a  whistleblower.   He also isn’t much of an employee,  since he makes a six-figure salary and can’t seem to find his new office at National Institutes of Health,  having been reassigned there after losing his position as director of the Biomedical Advanced Research and Development Authority.   Before he objected to Pres. Trump’s support for the use of hydroxychloroquine,  azithromycin,  and zinc to treat coronavirus patients,  on which he basses his claim of retaliation,  he had written in support of hydroxychloroquine.    Before the reassignment,  Bright was accused of “ incompetence and insubordination.”

Bright appeared before the House on Thursday  to testify to a subcommittee that the Trump Administration had not responded adequately to the coronavirus pandemic.   Democrats declined to require Dr.  Bright to testify under oath, so he could  — and did —  lie with impunity.   I watched without strict attention and caught several whoppers.   The Democrats think they are so clever but I’m far from the only one who noticed this invitation to deceive.

Cuban lies…

leave a comment »

Bernie Sanders is happy to defend Cuba’s record on everything because the literacy rate is so high, and that’s a good thing, as he said.   A Communist apologist spews out  these supposed  statistics.   I trust Goodrum as much as I trust the Cuban government,  which is to say not at all.   Since these are far from the first lies Bernie Sanders has been telling his entire life in one form or another,  I trust him no further than I could toss him on an average day.

I trust my two Cuban acquaintances far more,  and they say the only way unemployment is that low is if you include the black market economy,  which is what most Cubans operate under since no one wants to have a business big enough to alert the government goons who demand a chunk of the business and its proceeds.  They join me in hoping fervently that Bernie’s adoration of communism and its incestuous cousin socialism means he’ll lose Florida.  They both hope that whoever the Democratic presidential nominee is fails in a Reaganesque landslide.

Potential mess…

leave a comment »

There is the possibility that the Democratic Party bosses could leverage any of the candidates into the party’s presidential nominee.   It’s complicated,  just as the Democrats like it,  but perfectly plausible, as this  WaPo article explains.  Read it and lay in a good store of popcorn.

Iowa disaster…

leave a comment »

The caucuses Iowa holds give me a headache.  They often make little sense to me.  If I were forced to attend them,  I would become either homicidal or suicidal.  I agree with Jim Geraghty — caucuses are  a terrible  way to pick a nominee!    It appears  more than  a few people who actually did attend were not happy either.

Trump  won the  caucus easily,  garnering 97% over the 1% of his rivals,  former Massachusetts Governor Bill Weld and former Illinois congressman Joe Walsh.   Interestingly,  Walsh tried to disparage Trump at a caucus and got  blown off the floor.

The Iowa Democratic Party released a rather  cryptic statement  which claimed the discrepancies and delays were a “reporting” problem,  “not a hack or intrusion.”   It is reported that Hillary Clinton’s former campaign manager,  Robby Mook,  is the one who developed the system being used by the Democrats.  Is it  really just  a  glitch with  the app?  Are they trying to hurt Bernie?  A plethora of conspiracy theories are now laying themselves before us like.   And Trump is making  the most  of the train wreck.   The incompetence displayed  practically makes  a campaign ad for Trump,  doesn’t it?   After such a display,  why would anyone still sane wish to have a government  run by  Democrats in charge of his well-being?  I wait to see if all five candidates score…Karma has apparently arrived at the door of the DNC HQ as people  are demanding  the resignation of chair Tom Perez.

FOX News had  some interesting  analysis of unhappy Democrats.  Of course,  the candidates’ campaigns  are mad  at the state party making a hash of the system.  I do not think John Podhoretz  is wrong  when he says this mess portends further chaos for the Democrats as the primaries continue.   This  piece is  still relevant because we don’t know the winners and may not for several days or longer.

Collins fires up the House…

leave a comment »

Rep. Doug Collins earned a standing ovation for  this rousing  speech before the impeachment vote.   He earned the applause and shredded the Democrats and the Speaker in the process.   More,  please…
