Race-card politics…

leave a comment »

The Democrats’ use of the race-card in their never-ending employment of identity politics instead of actual policies is exquisitely skewered by Ed Rogers  here.  Fortunately,  for the good of the nation,  Democrats are either unable to grasp the very real harm their position do to the country or they simply don’t give a damn,  so they keep repeating the same mistakes.   They truly believe they have not merely the right,  but also the duty to call any opponents hateful names and hurl the most dreadful invective against them  —  hence Hillary’s  “basket of deplorables.”

I assure you Hillary did not think of that term unaided.  We the People responded by having T-shirts printed up which read “adorable deplorable” and which enraged more than a few progressives.   It is the Democratic swamp which protects group-think and the go-along to get along mindset.  Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein is not a Republican,  and neither are the people he assaulted and put the squeeze on.  What we do know is that his victims were willing to exchange their bodies for career advancement,  which to my mind says more about them than it does Weinstein.   The same is largely true of people who blindly vote Democratic,  no matter how damaging it is to them to have Democrats actually in power.  One plays the race-card when one has nothing else to offer….

When a scandal isn’t…

leave a comment »

Is when it involves a Democrat.   You could,  like NBC just did,  claim Sen. Robert Menendez is  a Republican,  but apparently  Big Media finds it so much easier to simply ignore the fact that the New Jersey senator is on trial for  public corruption.

It’s the first time in 36 years that a sitting U.S. senator has been on trial for bribery, so one might conclude that it would qualify as front page news.   It certainly would if a Republican were involved,  but since it’s a Democrat,  liberal media really doesn’t have any incentive to mention it,  having long ago abandoned any pretense of doing the actual job for which the Constitution offers protections.

The real resistance…

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.

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.

Reasons to vote for Dems…

It’s a book,  and a best-seller, but its pages  are blank,  which is not merely intentional,  but true.

Inauguration assholes…

leave a comment »

My apologies for the unannounced,  unexplained absence,  but a trio of family emergencies is responsible.   Everyone will survive, but my presence here will be spotty.

Since today is inauguration day for one Donald J. Trump,  I thought it would be instructive for you to be aware of the Democratic congress critters who are proving their progressivism and general intolerance and sore loser mentalities by boycotting the inauguration,  so  here you  are.

Of course,  they are not actually boycotting the event,  merely refusing to attend,  which my help explain the strange reasoning they employ to excuse their  bad behavior,  much of which is based on the outright lies of their beloved Congressional Black Caucus mentors, such as Congressman John Lewis,  who has become a parody of himself.   The Democrats have no intention of working with Pres. Trump and Republicans to improve the country and help the citizens,  and this is but the first warning shot across the bow.

Democratic electioneering…

with 5 comments

Fairfax County,  Virginia is stuffing the envelopes that absentee ballots are mailed out in  with Democratic  political material,  including a letter from the state’s governor advising a vote for the Democratic ticket and slamming the Republican one.

This is not an accident.   It’s not even a mistake.    It is deliberate electioneering by the Virginia Department of Elections.    Under Virginia law,  you can not hand out sample ballots inside polling areas,  so how could anyone imagine it would be fine to include it in an ballot?   I did not read the pertinent law,  but I can not think how this would not be at least a gross violation of rules and procedures.   Furthermore,  the same people who believe this is okay to do will have little hesitation about trashing an absentee ballot if they don’t agree with the votes cast.

If you live in a state with paper ballots,  good for you.  If you don’t,  watch them all like hawks and scream the rafters down if you see anything at your polling station which looks even a tiny bit off to you.   Look up the number of the election officials so you can call them on the spot.   I have been a poll watcher before,  and was amazed by the attempts at various forms of intimidation and cheating and trickery I witnessed over six hours.
