If you fail….

…to adhere to the Leftist narrative of the moment,  you may lose your job.   These people  did,  and there are many,  many more.

This is a  tad mean,  but it does act as a ray of sunshine into the dreary world COVID-19 has produced.  Like Reese’s,  I’m not sorry!

Ugliness revealed…

leave a comment »

Liberals and progressives have long suffered from a lack of true humor.   They laugh at others,  generally those suffering from misfortune.  If the subject has views they disagree with,  the humor becomes ever more brutal.  I thought His Oneness was a terrible president,  dangerous in his lies and using government agencies to attack his enemies,  but I never wished him dead.   The Left wants Rush  Limbaugh dead  and has no hesitation about saying so, with some not even pretending  it’s wrapped up in a joke.

President  Trump has  tweeted encouragement.   I think Brian Joondeph speaks for all of  us here.   Bear in mind that Limbaugh is a  former smoker,  having quit decades before.   Quitting is no guarantee you’ll avoid cancer,  but it certainly ups the odds,  so why not help yourself?   Of course I say this as a former smoker who was never addicted to nicotine  —  I just put them down one day and never picked them up again.   I hope you do the same.

Along  with Joseph  Farah,  I hope El Rusbo not only beats his lung cancer,  but that he recovers at warp speed and goes on walloping the other side for another 30 or 40 years.   I will  pray for  Rush,  like so many millions of his listeners.  You know you are extremely effective when your enemies are left with nothing but hate and death wishes.  Rush Limbaugh certainly knows this,  just as he knows his fate  is ultimately  in God’s hands,  a position he seems quite comfortable with.

Such hate…

with 2 comments

Victor Davis Hanson is a classical historian,  an excellent author,  and a keen observer of mankind.   In  this article  he explains why Donald trump is so hated.   First,  you must remember that the Left believed 16 years of Obama and Hillary would permanently change America,  and forever crush conservatism.    Hillary failed,  so the Democrats and the media proclaimed that Trump would fail,  then set about trying to make it come true.   Never forget that We the People are the real targets of the Left,  but they have to go through Trump to reach us.   They resent every win we have and deny that Trump had anything to do with it.  I know liberals who insist that the economy improved under Obama and he should get all the credit because Trump’s policies and programs are racist and destructive.  People like Candice Owens and Lloyd Marcus terrify them because they fear black Americans will leave the government plantation which has done so much to destroy the black family.

It is your job to understand their goals,  to arm yourself with real facts and fortitude, and fight back at every opportunity.

ThinkProgress zombifies…

leave a comment »

ThinkProgress is the  news site  which served as a supposedly editorially independent project of the Democratic Party think tank Center for American Progress.  In reality,  it arose during the Bush presidency and helped define progressivism during the Obama years.   You won’t be shocked to learn that the site has run deficits for years,  which was one reason top CAP officials have had no success persuading buyers to take it over.

Since they could find no one willing to be a patron,  the site will stop current operations on Friday and be converted into a site where CAP scholars can post.  In other words,  CAP will take back its foundling after discovering no one else assigns any real value to it.   I’ve visited the site occasionally over the years,  and found it to be nothing more than the usual bunch of shrieking Leftists,  permanently self-reverential and incapable of employing logic and facts.   That won’t change under the new circumstances.

I suspect it is no longer sufficiently Left to attract the current crop of loons,  and I’m not alone in  that view.

Left saving you money?

leave a comment »

Every time I read  this piece by James Mullin I laugh out loud.   He has taken the absolute determination of the Left to spend the USA into Third World status and made it useful and listed things he no longer spends his money on,  thanks to the Left and its ravening progressives.   It’s a useful attitude to cultivate this day and age.

Dees fired…

leave a comment »

Morris Dees,  the founder of the Southern Poverty Law Center ,  has been fired from the organization.  He claims not to know why he was fired,  and SPLC isn’t saying,  but some friends in the area say it was for sexual and racial improprieties.

Like Thomas Lifson ,  I suspect the huge  pile of money the organization has amassed is somehow heavily involved.   I know blacks who have gone to the group,  believing its name meant something,  and been swiftly shown the door.  It is the unchained dire wolf of the left,  savaging anyone it turns its gaze on.   It has lost several high-profile lawsuits,  including the Family Research Council,  which was attacked by a man admittedly inspired by the SPLC.  SPLC and Morris Dees deserve to be bankrupt.   There is a special corner of hell reserved for con men and those who prey on the well-intentioned elderly.  Dees appears to have honed his skills in college and used them to become a darling of the Left and personally very rich.  I hope he loses everything and lives another 40 years in misery.

Eating their own…

leave a comment »

You wouldn’t think a lefty Jewish bookstore owner in San Francisco’s Mission District  could do anything to incur the wrath of the crazies out there.  But you would  be wrong,  because Manny Yekutiel,  who calls his store a  “civic social gathering space,” and has hosted a number of lefties, supports Israel.   That’s right,  a Jew supporting Israel is unacceptable to the rabid bats on the Left and must be driven out of town.

Manny hosted Nancy Pelosi –  not a word of defence from her.   There probably won’t be any from San Francisco Mayor London Breed or  activists with Black Lives Matter.   Are they afraid of upsetting the communist chief protestor?

D.C. is insane…

leave a comment »

The District of Columbia is run by the looney Left and has been for many years.  The current proof is that the D.C. City Council is considering allowing 16-year-olds to  vote in  all elections,  local and federal.  The 26th Amendment guarantees citizens 18 and older the right to vote.

It does not prevent a state from setting a lower age,  probably because the Founding Fathers never dreamed any Americans could be either so stupid or so power-mad as to let 16-year-olds vote.   How wrong they were…

…and ice cream moguls Ben and Jerry are  teaming up  to find seven new names and flavors representing seven Democratic challengers.   How charming.  I never liked either their ice cream or their far left politics.   But I m willing to save them a lot of time:  Left,  Higher Taxes,  Far Left,  Manipulator,  Communist,  Socialist,  Liar,  and Insane.   That pretty much sums up what’s on offer from the Democrats,  with a side of Treason and Stupidity thrown in for good measure.   You’re welcome,  guys…
