That is…

…Madame Press Secretary to you!  White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany triggered rage among the media class Wednesday by exposing their known duplicity and hypocrisy.  When Reuters corespondent Jeff Mason threw a gotcha’ question at her she responded in kind  and at length, resulting in a frustrated wail from someone else that she “was prepared!”   Watch her dismantle the pretentious pantywaists,  here.

I’m told the press is spinning it as she was “reading prepared statements” without admitting it was the statements of the press she was reading,  as she was well aware the tiniest change would bring heat.

Press will bitch…

leave a comment »

The White House  has rearranged  the seating in the Briefing Room to increase social distancing.   In other words,  it is putting into practice what it is preaching.   Now cue the media howls of dissatisfaction,  outrage,  racism, etc.   After all,  the  true goal  of  MSM is to destroy Trump.

Merry Trumpmas…

leave a comment »

Pres. Trump’s Christmas  address called  for the country to foster a greater sense of “understanding and respect.”   The media failed to take the hint,  obviously still pouting because POTUS declined to throw a Christmas  bash for  the little DNC  apparatchiks, further evidenced by the  media’s hatred  of anything Christmas and Trump.   Take a quick tour of the White House  decorations  and see if you agree.

The Trumps  did host  the White House Christmas  Congressional  Ball.   The media won’t report how stunning the First  Lady looked,  just as it won’t report  her befriending  a former leukemia patient.    But the Trumps threw a big party at Trump Tower for employees and  posted pix  from a variety of seasonal events.

I hope the entire family found reason to celebrate despite the onslaught they have faced for the past three years.

Easter 2019…

leave a comment »

First we begin with  a list of Easter candy,  ranked from best to worst by PureWow.   I seldom eat candy any more,  but I don’t have a major quibble with the rankings.

Once again I lack an invitation to the White House Egg Roll,  but I’m sure the 30,000 or so guests won’t miss me a bit on Monday.    But I’m getting a close up sneak peek at the 2019 Commemorative Egg which will be presented to the First Lady.   If you’re not familiar with the art of quilling,  it involves tiny strips of rolled up paper,  fine motor control,  some artistic talent, and a whole bunch of patience.  This year’s egg is quite beautiful,  as you can  see here,  and I hope the weather is perfect.   If by some chance any of the 7,000 eggs aren’t claimed,  they will be taken to local food banks.

NOTE:  I’ll be adding to this post throughout the day, as there are generally some fine photos or statements to share, so check back.   In the meantime,  a  Blessed Easter  to you all.   As usual,  terrorism  has not taken a holiday.

UPDATE:  If you don’t quite understand the mission of Jesus,  Trevor Thomas makes it clear  in this piece.   Nicholas Frankovich explains the suffering of the cross.   You might also appreciate  some thoughts  of Kathryn Jean Lopez on Good Friday.   And the Poles should remember it is Easter and  get over  themselves.

I can’t believe…

…that former White House press secretary Tony Snow  died a  decade ago.  I have not willingly watched a daily briefing since he left that post.

Melania blamed for tree removal…

leave a comment »

The historic Jackson magnolia tree at the White house has been in pitiful shape for decades.   Held upright by cabling rather than its own strength,  it has long been an accident waiting to happen, so the First Lady has prudently decided to  have it cut  down,  and the wood preserved.

Most of the media is  reporting in  such a fashion as to make it seem Melania Trump is having the tree removed without any reason.  Since most of the media live in places where they either manage a few flowerpots or have gardeners, I can’t imagine why anyone would take their word for arborist matters.

Merry Trump Christmas…

leave a comment »

Pres. Trump upset the press corps by leaving the White House unannounced.   He was going to visit  our wounded  warriors,  having finished with the official  Christmas portrait  and such.    You may not have any military personnel to visit,  either in your neighborhood or at a nearby VA hospital,  but at least you can  think of them  and the sacrifices they make for your benefit.   POTUS held  a video  conference.   I would have just stayed in the deliciously decorated Red Room and probably eaten my weight in goodies.   But one day I’d like to participate  with Wreaths Across America.

Not to worry — Ag Secretary Sonny Perdue has already issued all the  necessary permits  for Santa’s worldwide journey.   You can  see here  the travel scramble,  and you can zero in on Santa’s progress   with this tracker.   Never  mind the Canadian  government’s stupidity.   We shall see if the  forecasters anywhere  get this one right.

My home is nowhere nearly  as glamorous  as the White House,  and I’m certainly no model figure like the First Lady,  but I’m a great fan of the Christmas spirit,  and I certainly understand the pull of  one’s home during the holidays.   I do not appreciate the  Left removing  Christ from Christmas,  and I am most curious as to whether  the bones  of a saint currently being examined in Italy are those belonging to a man whose name has been given to Santa Claus.   Unlike  these pets,  I will neither protest the season nor destroy its trappings!

I learned about Christmas the easy way,   not like  Michael Mackinnon.  And while my own display of lights is pretty well limited to battery-powered LED candles in the font windows,  I certainly appreciate those who  lights are  far more lush during this holiday.  I am grateful to Eric Owens for his crisp dismantling of the  fake holiday  of Kwanzaa,  created in 1966 by a violent,  radical black nationalist.   I don’t mind poking fun at liberals,  so Kurt Schlichter’s  comments amuse  me.  I love the Christmas shoutout  I received from Israel’s Prime Minister Netanyahu,  and I like Queen Elizabeth’s Christmas  message inspiring  and quite personal for a British  monarch.
