Trump at Daytona…

leave a comment »

Trump lit up the Daytona 500 yesterday when he and the First Lady were driven  in a lap  around the famed racecourse before he delivered a short speech,  then gave the customary order to start.   The President began with  a fly-by  in Air Force One.   I shudder to think how many different agencies had to sign off on that very low,  very close fly-by.  I’m sure another bunch had to sign off on the Beast being  the pace  car,  which the drivers got a kick out of,  the media,  not so much.

You will never go wrong at a NASCAR event when your speech  calls racing  “pure American glory.”   Trump supporters will also  never mind  your saying that  “no matter who wins,  God,  family,  and country matter most.”   The Trump campaign ad which ran there is a good one.   I think he has the NASCAR voters locked up tight.    Progressives wouldn’t dream of being caught dead at such a tacky,  redneck thing.   It’s one of the few things they haven’t manage to utterly ruin…

Here’s a  longer video of the fly-over,  a shot of our lovely First Lady and some crowd pix.   As the Left whines pathetically, keep in mind nothing the President said was  remotely political.   It was about them,  not him,  and the crowd loved  it.

UPDATE:  Todd Starnes offers the critics  some sage  advice.

UPDATE:  And the rookie driver  whose helmet  Trump signed!

A proper troll…

leave a comment »

Trump trolls Democrats regularly, but  this tweet  on January 23rd was a photo-shop with no caption.   It didn’t need one,  did it?

Do you think it was sheer coincidence that this tweet went out the same day a court order was declassified and released saying the last two FISA warrants on Carter Page dated April 7, 2017 and June 29, 2017 were not valid?

Nah,  me neither…

….  know who the Spygate characters are and how they are connected.   Matt Palumbo has written an entire book about Spygate,  which will n one heck of a read.   In the meantime,  here is  a chart of characters which should connect some dots and prepare you to read the book,  and stand as a bulwark against the Deep State lies which are already proliferating.

Dem nightmare…

leave a comment »

Black approval of Donald Trump  in both  the Emerson and Rasmussen polls this weekend hit 34%.   The general view amongst pollsters is that if Trump attracts only 25% of the black vote,  he wins,  no matter how many votes the Democrats create by bundling.   And do check out the wonderful sign!   I have hope that black voters  have now seen sufficient proof of promises kept to stop reflexively voting Democrat.

Market high…

leave a comment »

The Left has been saying for three years that the economy is about to sink into recession.  The democratic presidential candidates all say some version of “Orange Man bad…economy bad…not helping anyone but the rich.”   Yes,  we do have a bad case of overspending,  and too many government employees,  and there are still loads of regulations and rules Trump can dispose of.   But the stock market  just reached  a  record high,  which is proof that many,  many people don’t believe the doom and gloom.   That may be because a large swathe of the public see the impeachment inquiry as a purely political ploy without basis,  and they calculate Trump is tough enough to keep doing what he promised to do and that his continued success will stiffen the backbones of Republicans and cast the Deep State into despondency.   Drive on,  Mr. President!

If you want to know why so many of the available jobs are rather low-paying  service sector  jobs,  thank the government.  But what do you expect when manufacturing is sent overseas,  and you have a president who spent eight years trying to destroy the carbon-based energy sector?

The ugly truth is that too  few Americans  are well-educated enough to perform the high-tech jobs.   We barely speak English and we are lousy at even simple math,  much less rudimentary problem-solving skills.  I am sick of hearing people proclaim how smart and aware young people are today.   They  are not.  Add to that the protests of the activists demanding $15 an hour minimum wage,  and you have many industries looking to automate to avoid being burdened with employees who can’t produce enough to be worth their salaries and benefits. No one ever suspected that cotton production would be fully mechanized,  even after mechanical planters and pickers arrived,  because there was no way to get rid of weeds other than by hand-pulling and hoeing.   But in the late 1930’s a retired Air Corps Colonel,  Price C. McLemore,  devised a method of flame cultivation which used burning fuel to kill weeds without damaging cotton.   The Alabama farmer had  done the  impossible,  and was awarded the Edward Longstreth Medal by the Franklin Institute for his invention.

Machines must be maintained,  and sometimes need repair,  but they don’t stage strikes,  or demand days off or extra breaks.   Companies exist to earn money for owners and shareholders by providing goods or services to consumers.  Most people work because they desire the wherewithal to purchase those goods or services.  Progressives believe companies exist to provide workers with jobs, and by extension, the USA exists to employ anyone and everyone who wishes to come here.   One of the problems is that many of those who come here wish only to latch onto the government teat,  and we are far too generous both in welfare assistance and immigration regulations,  few of which we’re currently allowed to enforce.  Wake up,  people!!

Veterans Day update…

leave a comment »

Of course some New  Yorkers protested  Trump’s appearance for the big parade.   One can not go wrong emphasizing the lack of taste and class evidenced by the radical side of that city.   Trump gave  a speech  praising our military and well-suited to the occasion.

Meanwhile,  the newly completely blue state of Virginia did away with  its customary  21-gun salute and claimed the reason was “gun violence.”  I have written the president and told him jefferson was rolling over in his grave.  I have been to parties on the Quad at UVA and there were hours of a volume level equal to the salute.

Spare a kind thought for the Kansas shoe salesman  who created  the holiday.   Read about Mike Rowe’s  spot-on comments  about our  military.

And enjoy the below!
