Trump on killing terrorists…

leave a comment »

Oh,  how fine it is to have a president who understands that soldiers are meant to  kill bad guys and break things.   Who believes that field commanders should have the flexibility to fight effectively,  which requires rules of engagement that actually allow them to fire weapons without approval from the White House after going up a very long chain of command and being vetted and considered by a large number of people who have never dodged a bullet in their lives.

President Trump very smartly  used the  examples of unity and common purpose consistently displayed by our armed service members to encourage unity amongst the American people,  but don’t think for an instant that the Lefties in the media  —  but I repeat myself,  don’t I? —  will give the man much credit for it,  and they will forecast failure instantly.

I don’t find Sen. John McCain’s praise for the  speech helpful,  since he mischaracterized the malfeasance of the Obama Administration and to some extent his own previous criticisms of Trump,  but I grudgingly give him credit for the praise.  I was far  more interested in the view  of Rich Lowry and   that of  Quin Hillyer,  and Roger  Simon,  with the most interesting being from  the Conservative  Treehouse.

Charlottesville set-up…

leave a comment »

As she so often does,  Clarice Feldman clarifies what  actually happened  at Charlottesville.   Pres. Trump said precisely  the right  thing in response to the violence there at what was most likely a set-up orchestrated as a Democratic dirty tricks operation by a former Obama supporter,  with the willing connivance of Gov. Terry McAuliffe,  a Democratic mayor,  and a national media which could be counted on to obscure the truth  and create a meme to attack the president and his supporters.

Big Media and the Democrats are still at it,  despite new and damaging information continuing to emerge,  which if We the People are paying due attention,  will  ruin the  Democratic Party for at least a generation.  Get this part straight:  the Left is not merely fine with employing violence,  but actually prefers it as a tool for achieving its political ends because social unrest and distrust is always useful to them.   It matters,  because what they do to protesters is what  they will  do to you.  History is a good teacher if we listen.

If Colin Kaepernick…

…was worthy of the gallons of ink spilled on his behalf by the supportive media when he was protesting his country and making grand displays of his ignorance,  then where are  they now  that he appears to have been blackballed by every team in the NFL?   If he was so great and wonderful in his childish protests of the U.S. flag and the national anthem,  why don’t some of the liberals and progressives who lionized him then hire him?

Safari Park rules…

Whatever you’ve heard about the Arkansas nightclub shooting probably isn’t right.   This is  what MSM won’t report to you.,  because it doesn’t fit into one of their preferred narratives.

First, you must care…

CNN,  or at least whoever is responsible for  the chyrons  does not care very much,  since he or she or it failed to check whether “Philippines” was spelled correctly before putting it up to scroll across your TV screens,  providing proof to the world that CNN is as unconcerned with spelling and grammar as it is with reporting news.

How ironic that CNN  rejected Trump’s  First 100 day ad because of the “fake news”  graphic.

Media bias writ large…

leave a comment »

ABC,  CBS and NBC on Monday and Tuesday found plenty of time to drool over the return of His Oneness to public speaking,  but devoted not one millisecond to  Politico senior investigative reporter Josh Meyer’s alarming discovery  Obama released three times the number of Iranians originally claimed, and that most of them were being held for far more serious crimes than claimed.   It was,  as is so often the case,  left to FOX News to feature Meyer.

Dear lying media…

leave a comment »

…if you’re the least bit curious about why most Americans find you a corrupt,  slimy lot undeserving of the protections which our Constitution affords you,  you might try telling  the truth  about the recent shooting in Fresno.   You  substituted “God is great!” for the shooter’s shouted words of  “Allahu Akbar!”,  knowing full well that your deliberate omission of the Arabic words was misleading at best.   Of course,  CNN  simply ignored the inconvenient story altogether,  lest it interfere with its narrative of mistreated and misunderstood peaceful Muslims.

Or you could have National Public Radio  stop peddling  the endlessly repeated lie that Planned Parenthood provides mammograms.   It does not,  but it does provide referrals for that and most of the other procedures it claims to offer.   The fact that Barack Obama helped spread the falsehoods during his presidency does not serve to make them true.

Of course,  the Fresno police haven’t  much clarified  the matter by declaring this a hate crime based on race because the killer of four was black and all the victims were white.  Can we say  “terrorism”  boys and girls?
