…Pres.Trump won’t get credit for is potentially saving the lives of many thousands of kidney patients waiting for a donated kidney by changing the  regulations covering the process.

There have been long lines and thousands of patients dying since the 1980s.   Any president could have have addressed this.   Trump is the only one who actually did.

Watch Rep. Doug Collins  remind Jerry  Nadler that the rules of the committee he chairs also apply to him.  Yes,  Nadler had to withdraw his words…oh so delicious….

Fab 4th forecast…

leave a comment »

ABC, CBS, NBC and MSNBC all announced  their refusal  -and broadcast boycott- of any July 4th celebrations.   CNN  was especially  horrified.   However, RSBNFox10  and OANN carried it all, as did Newsmax TV and some others.   I taped it to watch today because I was not at home most of the day,

Harvard Law Professor Laurence Tribe thought it looked like the beginnings of  Tiananmen Square,  the commentator  herd at  MSNBC thought the military display was aimed at American citizens to intimidate them.   Having  all branches  of the military represented will only add to the intimidation, the pundits claimed.   NPR came up with some truly ridiculous lies  about trump’s Salute to America.  Tanks seem  to be objects of terror,  not interest.   Even the President didn’t realize how little damage the heavy tanks and other equipment would  actually cause  to D.C. streets.

Geraldo Rivera for once gets it right — Democrats  hate the  celebration because it’s done by Trump.  Former Navy SEAL Robert O’Neill makes the perfect observation,

The campus social  justice warrior,  not to be confused with the real warrior cited above who shot bin Laden,  should just not celebrate Independence Day.  Or they could at least quote that  noted scholar  Colin Kaepernick while he quotes those long dead to justify his position and actions,  except he apparently    the speech was after the Civil War and that Douglass was anti-slavery,  not anti-American.    Or you could join up with  Code Pink  and its charmless displays of juvenile behavior.  Perhaps you could read the New York Times which had an  op-ed tantrum  on the event because America was never great, and is actually barely OK.

MSNBC host Chris Matthews oddly  claimed Trump  had violated the Declaration of Independence with the celebration.   I’m not sure how that works,  but it’s on par with Hollywood claiming this is  what dictators  do.  Suffering from a temporary dearth of vitriol,  the WaPo must bemoan the awfulness of  fireworks.   No one mentions that politicians like them as much as they do  the tanks  the D.C. City Council so loathes.

Pete Buttigieg declared the event would make America  look smaller,  which was rather ironic considering the presidential candidate’s own diminutive stature,  and his very overweight dog.

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’s simple, really…

leave a comment »

It was essential that Hillary Clinton be elected to the Oval Office so she could cover up the multitude of crimes committed by the Obama Administration in the course of protecting her and in spying on the Trump campaign and others.   At a minimum,  His Oneness and his minions committed thousands of crimes.  My goal is to live long enough to see the whole sorry lot of them brought to justice.  Read this  carefully,  please, because it lays out what happened and what the crimes are.

After you read this, you will be largely inoculated against the lies of the Left.   And you will understand why Democrats are increasingly desperate and shrill.   But at least Speaker Pelosi is finally  getting around  to reading the Mueller Report.   I doubt anyone in her party has read it.

2019 D-Day, Part V…

leave a comment »

This photo  identifies most of the world leaders at the celebrations.   A bunch of U.S. Congressman  also attended,  but they didn’t get the amount of coverage Speaker Pelosi no doubt desired.   They no doubt thought Pres. Trump got too much  for reading  FDR’s prayer.

Then there is a  charming clip  of a British veteran who didn’t realize he was on live BBC TV.   Renowned musician Kenny Bierschenk performed Taps at the ceremony on a trumpet  which survived  the Normandy landing.

There  are stories  of the men who also survived that incredible day.   We should  all celebrate  the events and the men and their stories.   Read this to get an idea of  how enormous  the undertaking was,  and this to grasp why  American exceptionalism  was in large part responsible for the Allied victory.  That implies no disrespect for the other Allied forces.

Pelosi poses…

leave a comment »

Nancy Pelosi Thinks regaining the position of Speaker of the House means that she is the smartest,  toughest,  best leader of all time.   That hubris apparently led her to believe she could accuse Pres. Trump of “covering up”  some undefined matter and still be welcomed with open arms at a prearranged meeting on infrastructure shortly thereafter.   The President told Pelosi and Schumer he would  not meet  with them because of their fake investigations.

This appears to have stunned the two Democrats,  but that was merely for the cameras.   I am delighted with Trump’s  stout response,  because they have never had any intention of working with Trump on anything.  They never will.   It is all for show,  and they will tell any lie and pretend anything to win.   It’s what Democrats do.   And as more damning evidence emerges on the Obama Administration and its illegal and lawless behavior,  the progressives will only become more strident,  more hypocritical,  more deceptive,  more ruthless.  Get some popcorn…

Nancy and Chuck  started it,  but see how the Left is already extending the theater,  beginning  with Mad Maxine Waters
