Trump ends it…

leave a comment »

His Oneness held an Iftaar dinner all eight years he occupied the Oval Office.   Clinton and Bush made the same useless gesture Obama did.   Ramadan ended Saturday night  without an  Iftaar dinner or any other White House celebration of Islam’s holy month,  which has become an excuse for jihadists to unleash brutality and violence upon anyone who believes Islam is a religion of peace and disagrees with their practice of it.

Good for President Trump for not only having the intelligence to realize the futility of the gesture,  seen as slavering weakness and appeasement by jihadists,  but also for not succumbing to the timidity of political correctness which would have stopped a lesser man from ending the celebrations.   All this White House did was release a short statement in recognition of Eid al-Fitr.   The State Department did the same.

Suspicious silence…

leave a comment »

Why hasn’t the White House  commented on  the American teen who was murdered near Jerusalem by Palestinian terrorists last week?    His Oneness commented on the American murdered in Paris,  and the one murdered in the Mali attack,   but neither he nor Kerry have uttered a peep about Ezra Schwartz,   the Massachusetts kid spending a year in Israel.

Both officials have only indirectly mentioned  the other  Palestinian attacks occurring almost daily approaching Kerry’s visit,  though the trip is supposedly  to stop  the violence.   The Obama Administration is desperately attempting to maintain the fiction that its failure to confront terrorism is a strategy,  and that it’s working,  a lie so blatant that even Sen. Dianne Feinstein  publicly disagrees.

Silence on staffer…

leave a comment »

If a White house staffer in a Republican administration resigned after she was charged with assaulting her Capitol Hill police lover (or whatever he was),  it would be front-page news across the country.    But since the Democrats are there,  it has  barely been  mentioned.   The woman grabbed the cop’s service pistol and fired it at him  —  you’d think that might merit a word or two.

White House has Welsh roof…

leave a comment »

At least the West  Wing does,  according to an historian.  It isn’t known whether the roof is still extant or was replaced.

Brady snubs Obama…

leave a comment »

The New England Patriots visited the White House today to receive congratulations from His Oneness for their Super Bowl win,  but quarterback Tom  Brady was absent  due to  ‘prior family commitments’.

UPDATE:  It appears  Obama noticed.

National Archives fears White House…

leave a comment »

It isn’t clear precisely who at the White House the National Archives was so desperate  to avoid  upsetting,  but if they cheated in order to hide their fear,  I have to regard it as real,  and probably merited.

Obama’s Thanksgiving…

leave a comment »

His Oneness has flunked the Thanksgiving proclamation  test yet  again,  as expected.   I confidently predict that he will fail it twice more,  since he has no real understanding of the holiday’s meaning.

My Thanksgiving featured plenty of food and a nice array of desserts,  but certainly not  the six pies  the White House had,  so it’s nice to know the president at least  had to pay  for the food.
