Outside Dem debate…

leave a comment »

Here are  some scenes from outside Tuesday’s Democratic presidential debate.  I think the pro-trumpers have better signs and slogans,  and they look like a pretty happy lot.   Everybody else looks rather grim,  don’t they?

Michael Martin Uhlmann, R.I.P.

leave a comment »

Don’t feel bad if you  don’t know  who Mike Uhlmann was.   He was a first-class lawyer,  author,  and teacher  who could have succeeded in any field he chose.    He never sought attention,  but he achieved the difficult task of turning the thoughts and words of conservatism’s leaders into action and policies.

Uhlmann produced a monograph on why the Founding Fathers created the Electoral College,  why the states had to have a say in the election of a president,  and the dangers of a simple popular vote for the nation’s top office.   That work helped save the Electoral College from its enemies in the early 1970’s,  and is deployed to this day as the Left attempts its latest strike against the wisdom of our Founders.   Uhlmann had many other achievements,  but this one is the most directly pertinent today.

Still higher…

leave a comment »

The three-year procession of witch hunts and lies has done remarkably little damage to Presl trump’s polling numbers.  Of special note is that his approval numbers are  still higher  than Barack Obama’s at the same point in his presidency.  It is rather astonishing considering the  92% negative  coverage the media gives Trump,  versus the nearly universal adoration by the media during the reign of His Oneness.

Do we dare suspect that We the People have turned on our ears and brains and begun figuring this out?

Independent footsteps…

leave a comment »

A new poll shows that independent  voters are  moving towards Pres. Trump in a big way.   This could not have anything to do with the faux impeachment,  the witch hunt “inquiry” or the Democratic descent into sheer stupidity and madness.

Dems hate Israel too…

leave a comment »

Sen. Chuck Schumer,  Speaker Nancy Pelosi, and  a host  of other Congressional Democrats plan to address the annual J Street National Conference later this month,   which will also feature speakers from anti-Israel organizations including IfNotNow,  the New Israel Fund,  and the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) national and central councils.

If you actually were a supporter of Israel,  would you be caught dead speaking at an anti-Israel event, alongside of noted Israeli haters?   I think not,  so the next time a liberal or some other Democrat claims to stand for Israel,  throw this in their faces and rub it in.  They are all liars.   And do remember that Obama sent a team to Israel to try to keep Benjamin Netanyahu from winning an election.  He failed,  thankfully,  and perhaps all the liberal Jews in the Northeast and on the coasts will be asked to support their ethnic national home by refusing to support the Democratic Party.

Resentment, not compassion…

leave a comment »

I’ve never believed a progressive who claims that high tax rates were necessary in order to help the poor and disadvantaged.   The clip of Margaret thatcher contained in this  Federalist link  is a perfect dissection of the true motives.  The statistical charts reveal what I’ve always thought about socialism and all the others of that ilk:  it’s resentment of the ability of capitalism to reward education, creativity, work and talent,  not compassion, which drives progressives.

It’s also useful to remember that the youngsters who think socialism works are clueless about what things actually cost and what goes into creating those costs, and finally,  value.  Perhaps this will help wake up some of your acquaintance.

Most miserable cities….

leave a comment »

Here are  the most miserable cities in the USA.   You will,  I am certain,  be absolutely gobsmacked to learn that California has ten of the top fifty on the list,  with New Jersey hot on its heels with nine.   I haven’t finished checking yet,  but it’s dollars to doughnuts that most of these awful places are run by Democrats…Anybody want to help me check?
