More lying…

Did you believe former Attorney General Loretta Lynch when she claimed that all she and former President Bill Clinton discussed in their private meeting on the airport tarmac was golf and grandchildren?   I suspect you did not for even a nano-second,  because you are not only smarter than that,  you also probably don’t trust the government any more than I do.

And man, were we correct!   Thanks to the indefatigable folks at Judicial Watch,  we have learned that the FBI under Jim Comey  coordinated all the logistics and security for the meeting of those two high-level people.

There is also a report that a tape exists of the meeting,  but NSA refuses to release it.

Media is behaving as if Trump is the only one who benefited from it and it’s just awful.  But when His  Oneness did  it,  media hailed him as a genius.  Facebook may have been surprised that the Obama team was able to such up and employ so much information,  but made no effort to interfere because they were  Obama fans.  But when Facebook realized Cambridge Analytics was doing the same thing to benefit Trump,  it suddenly got religion.

Rest assured that had Cambridge been working for Hillary or Bernie,  Facebook would have chosen to remain agnostic.   But the data was being used to assist Trump,  and that was unacceptable, and thus  a scandal.   You may well ask what the scandal is  — there  is not  one, really, nor is there any sort of  existential crisis.   If you understand this,  you understand the staggering hypocrisy of the media giants.  They get to change the rules,  or simply ignore them,  as it suits them.  I use a friend’s Facebook account so I can keep track of all the cute baby pictures and such amongst my family and friends,  but Facebook knows nothing about me.  In fact,  I barely exist on social media platforms,  which suits me fine,  considering the frequency  and severity of their data breaches.

More government-funded disaster…

Why do people persist in thinking government displays competence at anything?  Why do taxpayers continue to meekly allow government at any level to confiscate their money, then lie to them and steal from them?  This is  but the latest  example in a long list of  foul-ups,  for which the federal government holds the title as undisputed champion.

The  firm responsible  and one of its partners were already being sued for another structure’s failure,  yet the  Obama Administration   never kicked them off the list.

UPDATE:  And the Florida Department of Transportation was warned of  cracks,  but  didn’t listen  to its voicemail in a timely fashion.

Does Joy…

…Behar not know that the Mafia contributed millions to churches and charities?  Or could that be why she infers that giving to the church makes her a Christian?   Whatever the case,  her apology is obviously forced by ABC,  and even  more obviously  insincere.

She respects no religion,  and no  belief system which does not match hers.   If you think otherwise,  you haven’t been paying attention.   Listen,  I  know it’s a real drag to have to pay attention to these people,  but you need to know what your opponents are up to,  what they are thinking,  and what they are planning.

Never underestimate stupidity…

…it’s a bet you are almost certain to win.  People are free to make their own choices,  but I personally would not give my custom to a coffee shop which tells its customers  not to talk  to police and will not serve police “for the safety of”  its customers.   I hope someone will ask the owners when the last time was they heard of someone trying to rob a police station.

You know the owners are liberals,  because this is a classic “think happy thoughts and the bear will not eat you” mindset.  It is part of the family of liberal thought grounded in unicorns and rainbows instead of reality,  first cousin to the mindset of Obama and company which declared that violent, disruptive students should be treated with kid gloves instead of being turned over to law enforcement.  Yeah,  the Parkland shooting was the fault of liberal/progressive thinking,  as are a whole basket of other miseries in the world.

UPDATE:  The fools who run the Hasta Muerte coffee collective have expanded their  intolerance and stupidity.  Having been informed that the cop who so terrified them was there to promote and extend community policing efforts,  they are now whining that they are being unfairly victimized, so in the finest progressive tradition,  they are doubling down.   “We need the support of the actual community to keep this place safe, not police.   Especially in an area faced by drug sales and abuse,  homelessness,  and toxic masculinity as we see here on this block.”

Do these loons not realize that their “community’ by their own admission includes some rather unlovely folks?  By the way,  the Spanish expression is customarily ‘hasta la muerte’ and means ‘to death’ or ‘until death.” It is widely used as a gang tattoo.  It seems quite prophetic in that a new business seems unlikely to prosper with such an attitude…

M to W…

leave a comment »

Are you impressed that McDonald’s corporate  logo will  be flipped, so that the iconic “M” will become a “W” ?   Supposedly this is in recognition of International Women’s Day.  They are welcome to do this,  butI find it a bit boring myself.  I would not be at all surprised to find that most women don’t celebrate it and have larger fish to fry anyway.  This smacks far too much of Hollywood and ugly feminism to be of any real value to actual women.

It would appear…

…that the Democrats’ supposed unity is a sham.   A crowded House primary in the Houston area has revealed the  continuing war   in the party between progressives who backed Bernie Sanders and members of the establishment who spent so much blood and treasure trying to protect Hillary and ensure her ascension to the Oval Office.

The Blue Wave so confidently predicted by so many pundits for the mid-term elections may not materialize if this battle isn’t resolved.   I frankly don’t see an end in sight because the original cause has not gone away.  Why would it?  Part of the Democratic Party knows the DNC cheated like mad, and that Hillary doesn’t give a hoot about them.  The other part thinks the world would be fine if only Bernie Sanders’ socialist wet dreams were realized,  and like the good goons they are,  they are only too happy to blow things up — literally and figuratively  —  to get their way.

Yeah,   I am enjoying watching them claw each others’ eyes out….
