Disinfect with sunshine…

leave a comment »

The Obama Administration operated largely in the dark,  just as His Oneness did himself.   “Look at this pretty,  shiny thing!”  the press team would exclaim whilst the drudges did the real dirty work behind the scenes.   If Trump actually does release  these three  documents,  the entire Obama Administration and the Clinton Machine will have a lot of explaining to try to do.   The media will turn themselves into pretzels assisting them but people with common sense and logic won’t be buying any of what they sell.

Sunlight truly is a superior disinfectant.  Louis Brandeis is credited with that thought, but it actually  came from  a book.

China shift…

leave a comment »

Democrats shriek that Trump’s trade stance is hurting America, not China.   But when an economy shifts from buying manufacturing material to  buying food,  there is a big problem.   China has long had tremendous difficulty feeding its people,  and the government knows it looks bad when it offs a few thousand starving peasants.

The reality is that China’s economy has been weakened,  and it cannot withstand the hits it is taking.   Yes,  it could call due all the U.S. debt it holds,  but Pres. Trump could simply refuse to pay and accuse them of market manipulation (which China is certainly guilty of) and wait them out at the various world courts.   Meanwhile,  its people go hungry,  and hungry people can become very dangerous ones.   China already loses a handful or so of bureaucrats and Communist Party officials every month when they go traipsing into the hinterlands to lay down the law.   It does not want to have to deal with open rebellion within its borders from ethnic Chinese — bad P.R.,  ya know.   It also does not want the African nations which usually supply its nearly insatiable appetite for manufacturing materials complaining that they are closing mines and facilities because China is broke.

Does Trump understand this?   Of course he does.   Do the Democrats?  Perhaps a dozen of their congress critters can cope with the evidence before them,  but most have trouble keeping a checkbook straight,   and they don’t even bother to try when it’s my money and yours.

Does anyone think…

…that if Obama was still president,  the Hong  Kong protesters  would be waving American flags?   Gee,  they don’t seem to know that Donald J. Trump is a fascist and Nazi and hates foreigners and his supporters are evil just like him.   How can they be unaware what an awful place America is?

Something else…

…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.
