Trump got game…

leave a comment »

After the co-captain of the U.S. women’s soccer team has refused to act like a normal American,  suffering from an extreme case of Trump Derangement Syndrome.   Having recently declared she would not go to the White house, and she doubted the team would be invited,  she set herself up for a fall.  Trump  has invited  the team to the White House,  win or lose.

A liberal reporter (yeah,  I repeat myself) shouted a  Russia question  at Trump on the White house lawn as he was heading to the G2 Summit.  His response was dead-on perfection.

It ain’t so…

leave a comment »

A favorite talking point of the Left is how much Trump is hated abroad and how no one respects him and would rather be dead than work with him.  The problem is that an ancient venue such as the  Viareggio Carnival,  which attracts more than 600,000 spectators,  is led this year by a multi-story  papier-mache  Trump.  And Italy isn’t the only place that  likes Trump.

Will NBC take the bait?

leave a comment »

Pres. Trump delights in stabbing people via his Twitter account, so it will be fun to see if his  taking the  word “collusion” and using it to describe their actions will draw an outraged response.

CNN now wants to jury tamper…

leave a comment »

Along with several other media outlets, CNN filed a motion with the court  to  obtain all  the Manafort jurors full names and home addresses.   Do they wish to go after the jurors before the trial ends, or do they suspect that the charges won’t stick, and plan to do the Left’s bidding  by destroying the jurors after the trial?     U.S. Marshals are already protecting the judge,  so one could not in good conscience make the jurors vulnerable by releasing their names

Stormy fizzles…

leave a comment »

As I watched this  boring episode  of 60 Minutes,  I was reminded of Geraldo Rivera’s embarrassing discovery of Al Capone’s vault — lots of dust and dirt,  nothing of substance.   And then I got curious.   Didn’t Stormy Daniels signa couple of statements saying she had not had any dealings with Trump?  When do we believe her?   Then?  Now?  How about never?  Why were her pupils dilated?

Now I’m just bored and somewhat amused that the  same media  who told us repeatedly that Lewinsky,  Juanita Broaddrick ,  and Jones were irrelevant to Bill Clinton now scream that a prostitute with scant credibility must be regarded as a paragon of truth so we must acknowledge the utter wickedness of Donald J. Trump.  Has Trump committed adultery?  Yeah,  but it only counts because he’s a Republican.  What about JFK,  LBJ and Bill Clinton,  who were all horndogs of the first water?   Do I wish Trump behaved better?     Of course,  but he is mostly trying to keep his campaign promises.  I’d be happier if the squishes who swing on the Congressional teat would develop a bit of backbone and help.

But now we see what Stormy  is really  after…

Mine’s bigger than yours…

You ain’t gonna see this touted in the New York Times or Washington Post,  folks.   At this point in their respective presidencies,  Pres. Trump has a  higher approval  rating than did Pres. Obama,  by four points.

Just imagine what Trump’s rating would be if he were dealing with an honest media and hadn’t been under continuous attack by Democrats and at least three agencies of the federal government for over two years.

Zinke targeted again…

leave a comment »

This time by the ultra-Left Huffington Post,  which wadded its panties up its nether regions because the Interior Secretary  didn’t disclose ownership of stock shares worth less than a grand,  which is the level at which one must report them.   I suspect a hidden outrage is that Proof Research sells firearms and advanced weapons material  —  oh,  the horror!  Unfortunately,  HuffPo is far from the only media outlet which obfuscates,  misleads and outright lies.   One can not swallow enough grains of salt to take anything it produces at face value, and that goes for a huge swath of the media these days,  which appears to have forgotten that it received special protections because it was expected to perform special services for the public.

I admire the military,  especially the elite units,  including the SEALs,  which Mr. Zinke formerly served with.   You don’t earn your way into such a class of warriors without being a tough SOB,  so I’m not the least surprised that he is methodically examining everything within Interior’s purview and slashing regulations and proposing changes which The Swamp and the Deep State seriously object to.   He is a man for whom the only status quo is completing the mission,  an attitude almost totally foreign amongst the bureaucratic stakeholders.
