Nancy's Terrible Twos Moment

I know it’s been a tough week. The Senate refused to allow itself to be bullied into helping you to smear the President further. Adam Schiff revealed himself to be the goofball moron many already knew him to be. President Trump’s numbers continue to improve in the face of unrelenting criticism from Democrats and their partisan hack allies in the media. And then your parties showcase event for the week, the Iowa Caucus, has deteriorated into chaos and disarray. But pointedly tearing up your copy of the State of the Union Address was the act of a child and a poorly behaved child at that.

Nancy was not alone in her unprofessional and puerile behavior. There was, of course, the spectacle of all those ladies wearing white so that they could draw attention to themselves. This sea of white is the same silly tactic they used in the last SOTU. Narcissism aside, the Democrats might want to reconsider the optics of all these white-clad buffoons refusing to applaud for a scholarship granted to a young African-American girl simply because it was Trump who gave it. It was petty, infantile, and absurd, but it did reveal that Democrats are far more concerned with genuflecting before the Teachers Union than in doing anything to help the poor trapped in failing schools.

In the end, the Democrats continue to distance themselves from the very people they need to vote for them. No one expects the opposition applaud everything the President says, but the outright disrespect, not just for the office of the Presiden but on their own as well, is not lost on the American people. Some boycotted the speech, some walked out, and some just chose to be juvenile and myopic.

They Have Clearly Lost Their Minds

The Democrats in this country have lost their minds. I am sorry, but it is true. When the terrorist leader that is directly responsible for over 500 American deaths and thousands of American and Coalition forces has been taken off the battlefield, it should be a cause for celebration no matter who the President is who ordered it. It does not matter to most thinking people whether or not there was evidence of “imminent danger” from this vile human being. He has already shown himself to be a war criminal and capable of the cruelest atrocities. His death, unlike most, actually enriched the world rather than detracted from it.

This, in my opinion, is akin to taking out Himmler or Goering or (pick your Nazi) prior to WW II. By the time the statesmen running the world realized Hitler was an “imminent threat” he had already overrun half of Europe with his sights set on the rest. I am not FDR’s biggest fan but he was right about the threat to the world the Nazi’s posed and if he and Churchill had been able to act sooner to contain that threat millions need not have died. It would have been right then and it was right now to take out this piece of filth responsible for so much suffering by so many.

The Iranian regime is a rogue government and its only interest in engaging in the world community is to manipulate it to achieve its own ends. They have no interest in peaceful co-existence with their coreligionists, let alone Israel and the US. It is very telling that the usual voices so ready to condemn any strong actions by the US are conspicuously silent. If even those who do not wish us well and who are not our allies recognize that this cancer on humanity had to be excised, then why don’t Democrats.

There were a few days of “mourning” where students and others were forced onto the streets by the government to express “sorrow” over the death of this monster. The American Press ate it up, some particularly idiotic commentators comparing the this outpouring of feigned grief to that expressed in this country for Elvis or in Great Britain for Princess Dianna. Such utter nonsense would end the careers of these talking heads in any sane society, but as I have already stated these people have lost their minds.

In the middle of all this, the Iranian Military shot down a Ukrainian passenger jet, killing every one on board. First they tried to cover it up, then attempted to blame it on their reaction to “American adventurism” in the region. The American press lapdogs dutifully ate it up, of course, but then something happened that changed the narrative.

Iranians flooded to the streets once again, this time without coercion. Instead of chanting “Death to America” and “Death to Israel” they were calling for the heads of the leaders of their own government. Rather than trampling on and burning American and Israeli flags they were purposely avoiding walking on those flags painted on the street for that very purpose in 1979. Rather than weeping over the assassination of the “Great Hero” Gen. Qassem Soleimani, they were tearing down posters of him and burning them in the streets.

And as of this morning, still not a word of support for these demonstrators from the Democrats. These demonstrators are clearly heroes, risking their lives and the well being of their families to oppose this despotic regime. The silence from Democratic lawmakers and candidates for the Presidency is just stunning. Hopefully there will be a joint resolution in Congress voicing support for these brave souls and it would send a clear and unambiguous message to the mullahs if that resolution passed unanimously. I pray the Democrats and Republican can come together in a bipartisan declaration that above all, we stand with those who defend freedom.

Who didn’t see this coming?

Ocasio-Cortez faces primary challenge from second-generation Queens immigrant

You start a brand new job and then immediately begin dissing the boss who just happens to be one the most powerful women in the United States. Did you really think Fancy Nancy was going to just grin and bear it?  

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., will have to get through a primary challenger if she wants to hold on to her seat in 2020. Democratic activist Badrun Khan, who has challenged Ocasio-Cortez for the Democratic nomination to represent New York’s 14th district. says on her website that she’ll provide “REAL Results… Not Empty Promises” — an apparent jab at the socialist darling. When asked about Khan’s challenge, Ocasio-Cortez said: “I just focus on delivering for my district and doing the best job. I try not to focus too much on other folks in the field,” according to The Hill. Khan filed her statement of candidacy with the Federal Election Committee in July. The website for New York City’s government confirms that Khan serves on Queens Community Board 2.

The “Debate”

To begin with, I did not watch. From what I’ve seen in the morning shows on CBS and FOX News there was nothing new other than Castro’s announcement that he was going to start buying votes. He is not content with the usual Democratic method of promising something for nothing with no clue how to pay for it. No, taking a page from the Al Capone school of politics, his campaign is sending cash to people.

I heard this morning that a whole bunch of lawyers have looked at this and declared that it’s all fine and dandy and we know that if the lawyers say it’s okay then it must be so, right? Well then someone will have to explain to the American people just when bribery became legal in the election process because when you strip away the Orwellian Clintonisms and legalistic rhetoric that is all it is – 1930’s Chicago style cash for votes bribery.

WHO’S GOING TO PAY FOR ALL THIS? 

And when will someone in the press seriously pursue the question of how any of these wild giveaway schemes they are all promoting in one guise or another are going to be paid for? Dizzy Lizzy Warren says, “It will be paid for by the people at the very top.” Not to pick on this nit more than the rest of the wits, just how would that work? Even if you could confiscate their entire net worth you would not even come close to funding this utopian dream of yours.

 So where will the funding come from? The same place it always comes from. You and I. What does that mean? Well let’s look at this in terms of a single paycheck. If you currently make 700.00 a week you are probably taking home between 500.00 and 600.00 per week for a forty hour workweek at current tax rates. As the burden of paying for an ever expanding government bureaucracy-because it’s not big enough already-so that all of this can be offered to those who will not work, be prepareto see that paycheck take-home shrink to 350.00 or less.

But hey! At least you will not have a healthcare premium to pay. 

Condoleezza Rice shuts down NBC anchor’s question on whether Russia helped Trump win


Former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice told an NBC anchor Wednesday it was not accurate to suggest that Russia flipped the 2016 election in President Trump’s favor. “I don’t think there is any evidence of that. And, you know, I really don’t think that’s a good conversation to have,” she told NBC anchor Savannah Guthrie. Guthrie had just asked whether Russian interference “actually worked” and blocked a victory by former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton.

Made up rights and actual rights

It is amazing to me that some of thes candidates ar all about espousing rights that are not in the Constitution such as this new bonehead idea by Pitiful Pete while trashing, ignoring and seeking to repress rights that actually ARE in the Constitution, such as the right to free speech, religion, assembly, to bear arms and even the fundamental right to life.

Beto O’Rourke claims ‘living close to work’ is a ‘right’

Democratic presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke now claims you have a “right” to live near your job.

“Living close to work shouldn’t be a luxury for the rich,” the former Texas congressman tweeted Monday. “It’s a right for everyone.”

O’Rourke didn’t explain how it’s a right – or if he considers it a constitutional or a human right. But in a video posted on Twitter, the Democrat argued that living closer to one’s work would not only “reduce our impact on climate change and greenhouse emissions” but would also “improve the quality of life” for people.

In the video, O’Rourke claimed “we force lower-income working Americans to drive one, two, three hours in either direction to get to their jobs, very often minimum wage jobs. They’re working two or three of them right now.”

“Rich people are going to have to allow — or be forced to allow — lower-income people to live near them,” he said.

Elizabeth Warren’s Green New Deal Scheme Won’t Work

Energy

I cover energy, security, Europe, Russia/Eurasia & the Middle East

Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) needs a new energy advisor. Late last week the Democratic presidential hopeful tweeted her plan to impose a nationwide ban on hydraulic fracturing and a suspension of all new fossil fuel drilling leases for offshore and public lands. She wants to ax the most promising American energy sectors on her first day in the Oval Office. The proposal may come from a place of valid concern for the Earth’s climate, but it also demonstrates a dangerous ignorance of global energy security and the U.S. economy. The harebrained scheme raises questions about Professor Warren’s fitness to serve as President.
