Trump on killing terrorists…

leave a comment »

Oh,  how fine it is to have a president who understands that soldiers are meant to  kill bad guys and break things.   Who believes that field commanders should have the flexibility to fight effectively,  which requires rules of engagement that actually allow them to fire weapons without approval from the White House after going up a very long chain of command and being vetted and considered by a large number of people who have never dodged a bullet in their lives.

President Trump very smartly  used the  examples of unity and common purpose consistently displayed by our armed service members to encourage unity amongst the American people,  but don’t think for an instant that the Lefties in the media  —  but I repeat myself,  don’t I? —  will give the man much credit for it,  and they will forecast failure instantly.

I don’t find Sen. John McCain’s praise for the  speech helpful,  since he mischaracterized the malfeasance of the Obama Administration and to some extent his own previous criticisms of Trump,  but I grudgingly give him credit for the praise.  I was far  more interested in the view  of Rich Lowry and   that of  Quin Hillyer,  and Roger  Simon,  with the most interesting being from  the Conservative  Treehouse.

Charlottesville set-up…

leave a comment »

As she so often does,  Clarice Feldman clarifies what  actually happened  at Charlottesville.   Pres. Trump said precisely  the right  thing in response to the violence there at what was most likely a set-up orchestrated as a Democratic dirty tricks operation by a former Obama supporter,  with the willing connivance of Gov. Terry McAuliffe,  a Democratic mayor,  and a national media which could be counted on to obscure the truth  and create a meme to attack the president and his supporters.

Big Media and the Democrats are still at it,  despite new and damaging information continuing to emerge,  which if We the People are paying due attention,  will  ruin the  Democratic Party for at least a generation.  Get this part straight:  the Left is not merely fine with employing violence,  but actually prefers it as a tool for achieving its political ends because social unrest and distrust is always useful to them.   It matters,  because what they do to protesters is what  they will  do to you.  History is a good teacher if we listen.

Trump tax returns…

…are  not subject  to  FOIA requests according to a federal judge.   Cue the shrieks of outrage and fury from the Left,  which is always big on privacy unless it’s your privacy getting in its way.

Reebok doesn’t want my money…

leave a comment »

At least not if you’re a conservative,  or anyone else who thinks paying a woman a  great compliment  should not be tolerated.   I’ve never worn the brand  because I’ve never found anything in the  Reebok line  that fit properly and was comfortable out of the box.   Now I need not consider the company in my future footwear purchases.

CNN face plant…

leave a comment »

CNN spent all last week warning that Trump would not confront Putin over election meddling.    You could hardly turn on the channel without seeing these  chyrons.   And then he did bring it up…..oops,  move along now,  folks…

CNN is moving from the Clinton News Network to the Clown Not News Network at warp speed these days.

Omnibus idiocy…

leave a comment »

If Steven Hayward can’t keep up with all the Democratic insanity over trump,  then you certainly can’t expect me to,  either.   I therefore offer you Mr. Hayward’s  view of the  last week,  and warn you that some of it is damned funny.

Whiny women march…

leave a comment »

Since the 1970’s a woman in America could complain of abuse by an employer or business, then sit on her fanny while the federal government pursued the alleged miscreant, and the complaining woman would get the fine or jury award and we taxpayers would pick up the entire cost of the venture.  That is not human rights,  or civil rights,  or even women’s rights  –  it’s special rights to which no one else is entitled,  and that is how the so-called women’s rights groups want to keep it.

They also want to keep getting the tax breaks for minority and women-owned businesses,  despite numerous reports that many of the women are merely fronts for the businesses and contribute nothing to it beyond getting them the preferential loan treatments and special dispensations.

The progressive women’s groups keep some very unsavory company,  such as  the D.C. organizer,  who is pro Sharia law and has ties to the  terrorist group Hamas.   Additionally,  at least 56 partners of the D.C. march  have ties  to George Soros,  as well  as Hillary  Clinton.

I channel-surfed to see what the marchers were saying.   Many of them just seemed to be hysterically  anti-Trump, but none of them made much sense,  especially those complaining about an apparent nation-wide shortage of  pink yarn with which to make their pussy hats.   Drew Belsky had a  much better  idea,  except I doubt many of those marchers could fry an egg successfully.

Progressive feminism’s call for “equality”  doesn’t help  women, and neither did the  vulgar language   and crude costumes.  Defiance of what?  Solidarity in  what?  In believing you’re cool because you  banned pro-life groups from the march?

There were a  few aerial  push-backs against the drumbeat of “my victimhood is  greater than yours” and “my grievance  is more important than yours.”

Since this march was a spectacular failure, the progressive females have decided to promote another march for a “Day Without Women” or some such thing.   The chief promoter is a  convicted terrorist.   But her militant and bloody background should make  her perfect  for the militant phase of protests.
