The World Must Turn Without Me......

Today there will be no exposure to social media insanity. No over the top faux outrage of the day from the news media. No pundits in need of medication pontificating. No television, no radio.  The cellphones shall remain on the chargers. No laptop, no email, no creative decisions to be made, no directions to be issued. 
It will be morning of floating in the pool and an evening of a quiet dinner and entertaining friends, topped with a long awaited night of a warm touch on the small of my back and unencumbered, uninterrupted slumber, something that has become less and less frequent in my life and very much needed. 
See you tomorrow....

How DJT Withstands So Many Controversies...


The word 'treason' is now being thrown around to describe how President Trump seemed to take Russia’s side during his summit meeting with President Vladimir Putin in Helsinki, Finland. But as with every major controversy that Mr. Trump has faced, it’s unclear if anything will happen as a result.

Under fire for contradicting United States intelligence reports of Russian interference in the presidential election, Trump asserted on Tuesday that he had misspoken at his news conference with Mr. Putin, and that he had meant to say, “I don’t see any reason why it wouldn’t be Russia,” rather than “would.” He added, “Could be other people, also.” Never in the modern era has the word “treason” become part of the national conversation in such a prominent way. Some who voted for Mr. Trump struggled to endorse his approach, but many are reaffirming their support.

On the subject of the prominence of the term "treason," here's a link to an article from the NYT's yesterday that says:
"John O. Brennan, the former C.I.A. director called Trump's performance “nothing short of treasonous.” The late-night hosts Stephen Colbert and Jimmy Kimmel also invoked treason on their shows. The front-page banner headline for The New York Daily News declared “OPEN TREASON.” 
Max Boot, the former Republican who has become one of Mr. Trump’s sharpest critics, noted in a column on Monday in The Washington Post that accusing him of treason was once unthinkable. No longer.... Mr. Trump returned to the White House on Monday night as protesters outside the gate shouted, “Welcome home, traitor.” 
Even Dictionary.com trolled the president, tweeting out a definition: “Traitor: A person who commits treason by betraying his or her country."
It later said that searches for “treason” had increased by 2,943 percent. By Tuesday afternoon, the word “traitor” had been used on Twitter 800,000 times and the word “treason” about 1.2 million times.

The word "treason" used in political discourse like that, brings us back to the book written in 1964 by John A. Stormer called "None Dare Call It Treason."
"The Communists have sworn to bury us. We are digging our own graves.... From where has the money come to build and finance the vast collectivist underground which reaches its tentacles into education, the churches, labor and the press?  Amazingly, the fortunes of America’s most successful tycoons, dedicated by them to the good of mankind, have been redirected to finance the socialization of the United States."
That was the deployment of the word "treason" that went big in the 60s. People who were not right-wing, of course, viewed it as anti-communist hysteria, a throwback to the McCarthy era, and that's the way I've seen the word "treason" all this time. But John Brennan threw it back into the American discourse and the hate blinded Trump antagonists have run with it.

But don't call them unhinged, that would be over the top or something....

Self Righteous Indignation: Media Throws Up in Their Mouths



But of course, no word of this: 
"Vladimir Putin made a bombshell claim during Monday's joint press conference with President Trump in Helsinki, Finland, when the Russian President said some $400 million in illegally earned profits was funneled to the Clinton campaign by associates of American-born British financier Bill Browder - at one time the largest foreign portfolio investors in Russia. The scheme involved members of the U.S. intelligence community, said Putin, who he said "accompanied and guided these transactions." 
Browder made billions in Russia during the 90's. In December, a Moscow court sentenced Browder in absentia to nine years in prison for tax fraud, while he was also found guilty of tax evasion in a separate 2013 case. Putin accused Browder's associates of illegally earning over than $1.5 billion without paying Russian taxes, before sending $400 million to Clinton...." - Read More

If You Believe Everyone Should Bow Before the Queen, Win The War Next Time


In today’s edition of “everything Trump does must prompt outrage” moment, DJT visited with Queen Lizzy 2, and together they inspected a contingent of handsome Royal Guardsmen on the lawn of Windsor Castle. Apparently, at one point, it looks like the President managed to briefly step in front of the Queen as they walked. This naturally, was enough to turn some formerly freedom loving people into loyalists demanding absolute subjugation to the throne.

The Trump hating ladies at The Huffington Post leapt to the defense of the nice lady with a crown, jumping right on this vitally important story..... 
"The royal family adheres to a strict code of etiquette and behavior. So when the ever-boisterous President Donald Trump met with Queen Elizabeth II for tea at Windsor Castle on Friday, many expected him to serve up some awkward interactions. Of course, Trump did not disappoint.
The president’s critics on Twitter were quick to call him out for briefly walking in front of the queen, which is reportedly a serious social faux pas, during a ceremonial inspection of the Guard of Honor. Reuters noted that Trump “halted abruptly” during the inspection, forcing Queen Elizabeth to walk around him."
The video clip is kinda funny. It looks to me like the Ol' Girl just lost traction and was monumentally headed for the weeds. There was also a great kerfuffle about the fact that DJT didn’t bow before the Queen when they met for tea, with many suggesting he’d gravely broken “royal” protocol. Contrary to a lot of the outrage purported in the literally dozens of articles breathlessly reporting these incidents, no actual protocol was broken. Per the guidelines, bowing is not required.

Personally, I think it’d be pretty damn ridiculous for a US President to bow before the monarchy America won their independence from, but that's just the dislike of monarchy in me. Oddly enough, there is actually no prohibition on walking ahead of the Queen either, but what fun would it be if the tweeter-verse observed that fact? In reality, it appears that the President was largely gracious for the visit. And at least he didn't look like a complete bumbling idiot talking over the British National Anthem like some people we know. 

While this is all much ado about nothing, it’s hilariously ironic to see people who’ve no doubt accused Trump of being authoritarian in some manner now losing their minds over him not showing absolute fealty to an actual monarch. But hey, if you are of the belief everyone should bow before the Queen, win the war next time.

Off To The Tower of London With You Acosta!

STREIFF - If there is a single media personality that epitomizes the overweening arrogance, sub-caliber IQ, and lack of self-awareness that is the comic archetype of a television celebrity reporter it is CNN’s Jim Acosta. Ever since CNN decided to position itself as the official mouthpiece of the anti-Trump Resistance, Acosta has been its point man every day in the White House. Just a couple of weeks ago, Acosta tried to get President Trump’s attention…or more accurately, he tried to get attention for himself…by screaming a question from the back of a press conference.

Acosta is a twerp who probably spent all of middle school having other kids flick the backs of his ears as they passed him in the hallway and leaving him cowering in tears in the guidance counselor’s office. On the other hand, given that CNN makes a big deal of this kind of bullshit in its coverage–they portrayed Acosta as some kind of brave truth-teller after his churlish behavior at the last press event–it is probably necessary that he get these smackdowns.
 "President Trump refused a question from CNN's Jim Acosta at a joint press conference Friday afternoon with UK Prime Minister Theresa May in Buckinghamshire. Earlier in the press conference, Trump called out CNN after receiving a question from NBC News reporter Hallie Jackson. Trump said NBC is "possibly worse than CNN."  
In Acosta style he shouts out "Mr. President, since you attacked CNN, can I ask you a question?"
"I don't take questions from CNN. CNN is fake news. I don't take questions from CNN." Acosta almost brought the press conference to a halt insisting that the U.S. president take his question." - Video
I don’t know what lesson will be learned from this by future presidents. Historically, Democrat presidents (see Clinton and Obama) have been handled with kid gloves by the press and Republican presidents have played the role of good-natured punching bag (see George W. Bush). Strategically, there is zero doubt that Trump’s media strategy is working. Recent research has found that super-majorities of Americans believe the media is pushing its own agenda and CNN is feeling the impact as they are a non-entity among news outlets and are in a death struggle with SpongeBob SquarePants for ratings.

A Creepy Partisan Weasel of the First Order.


The cockiness of Peter Strzok at Thursday’s hearing is a reflection of the immunity that ruling-class mandarins enjoy in liberal Washington. He was testifying from the safety of the deep state and thus knew that he could lie his head off without consequence. How else to explain his unrepentant opening statement, with its blatant anti-Trump special pleading? The statement sounded like it had been written by Rachel Maddow, resting on the lamest and hackiest of MSNBC-style talking points, that “today’s hearing is just another victory notch in Putin’s belt and another milestone in our enemies’ campaign to tear America apart.”

Strzok insulted everyone’s intelligence by insinuating that something other than Hillary’s opposition research had spurred the FBI to investigate her opponent. He couldn’t tell the committee what that was, of course, lest that threaten an “ongoing investigation.” But, trust him, that something was really, really “significant.”

The Strzok on display at the hearing was the same arrogant bureaucrat on display in the texts — an abusive, ruling-class jerk who still thinks he deserves a place on the Mueller probe. Making Mueller look like an ass and cementing his probe’s reputation as a partisan clown show, Strzok insisted that his removal from it had nothing to do with unprofessional behavior but with a mere “appearance” problem, one he blamed not on his own conduct but on Republicans “misinterpreting” his texts. This is chutzpah on a breathtaking scale, which would be inconceivable were the target of his blundering espionage anyone other than Trump. Strzok’s “insurance policy” against Trump had a provision for his career too. He would survive exposure by wrapping himself in the protective gauze of the anti-Trump resistance. - George Neumayr

MSNBC Joins CNN: Beaten in the Ratings by a Wet Sponge

Squinty and Meat Puppet are Devastated 

Gloom, Despair and Agony on Me they're mumbling in cable news land. According to the latest Nielsen Media Research, MSNBC and CNN failed in the ratings to even beat home improvement shows and children’s cartoons.
DC - According to Nielsen, Fox New Network marked its 26th consecutive week as the top network in total day viewers. Competitors MSNBC and CNN both struggled to match Fox’s dominance, falling to third and 16th in primetime, respectively. 
CNN had a horrible week, managing just 669,000 primetime viewers and losing to the following networks: HGTV, USA, Food Network, TLC, Hallmark, and more. MSNBC fared much better in primetime, finishing third behind HGTV. 
HGTV and Nickelodeon — home of Spongebob Squarepants — wiped the floor with CNN and MSNBC in total day viewership. Nickelodeon finished second in total day with 914,000 viewers while HGTV finished third with 814,000. MSNBC trailed behind in fourth place with 763,000, while CNN tied for 9th with the Food Network at 535,000 viewers.
There is not much hope for the one trick pony CNN. But MSNBC, well maybe more Al Sharpton and Joy Reid would help. Yeah, That's the ticket!

John Kerry Proves He's Still Inept at That Foreign Policy Stuff


Liberals are in hysterics and wetting themselves because the President went to Europe and talked tough to European allies and actually had the audacity to question why they don't pay their fair share in defending the continent from Russian aggression. And just like every other times Trump has done something they deem unusual or dangerous, he gets results and liberals are left looking embarrassingly for the next shiny object. As a result of Trump's straightforward tough talk, the NATO nations have agreed to increase their military spending and no one was harder hit than former Secretary of State John Kerry--The Earl of Ketchup/Duke of Heinz--who ceremoniously defined the role of top US diplomat with historic ineptitude and incompetence
"NATO leaders pledged their “unwavering commitment” to boost defense spending on Wednesday, following stern words from President Trump criticizing European leaders for spending too little. The U.S. and European allies signed a declaration stating they are “committed to improving the balance of sharing the costs and responsibilities of alliance membership.” The declaration comes after confrontational and testy discussions between Trump and other NATO leaders."
So Trump dresses down NATO about lack of military spending and they respond by increasing military spending. It seems so simple. Why couldn’t Kerry or Obama do this? I guess I answered my own question. Kerry and Obama.

Kerry posted a statement on the tweeter saying that Trump was “disgraceful and destructive” and called his statement “counter productive.” He also claimed that Trump had undermined the Obama administration’s efforts to get NATO to increase their military spending. I wonder if the news has reached him Trump actually got NATO to do this while he and Barky had failed so miserably.

Kerry implied Trump was stupid, which is funny coming from a guy who paid Iran pallets of cash to continue their nuclear weapons program. Kerry then tried to make it seem like he was tougher on Russia than Trump is. Yeah, same guy who sat around sipping Chardonnay with other useless diplomats as Russia annexed a large portion of the Ukraine. And all this coming from the Secretary of State who summed up the Clinton/Kerry foreign policy years; 'Nothing Says World Peace Like a Box of Potatoes'.

Obviously John Kerry is confused by foreign policy success. This is something he has never experienced before and it is frightening to him. It also probably doesn’t help that Trump’s winning makes Kerry look even more like a blathering idiot.

It's Easy to Tell When The Left Realizes They're Losing, Badly


Yeah, they have very little left in the tank, and it getting more fun to watch every day. 

Stephen Colbert and pro-abortion advocacy group NARAL have both feebly tried mocking Supreme Court Justice nominee Brett Kavanaugh...........for being named Brett. Colbert, the obnoxious over-the-top critic of the Trump joked Tuesday night on "The Late Show" about playing a drinking "game" that involved pouring himself a drink every time his glass was empty as he watched Trump's announcement of Kavanaugh.
"I don't know much about Kavanaugh, but I'm skeptical because his name is Brett.  That sounds less like a Supreme Court justice and more like a waiter at Ruby Tuesday. Hey everybody! I’m Brett. I’ll be your Supreme Court justice tonight. Before you sit down, let me just clear away these rights for you."
It must be a really sad existence being a comedy writer these day.

In a tweet Tuesday night, NARAL, step-sister to Murder Inc. aka Planned Parenthood, also dismissed Kavanaugh as "some frat boy named Brett" who would take away reproductive rights. NARAL tweeted:
"We'll be DAMNED if we're going to let five MEN—including some frat boy named Brett—strip us of our hard-won bodily autonomy and reproductive rights."

The abortion group did at least know to name Kavanaugh in its tweet. The Women's March sent an email blast about Judge "XX" the night of Kavanaugh's nomination, forgetting to fill in his name as it warned about the threat he posed to their perceived civil rights. They continued to issue draconian warnings about him bringing about the end of women's rights, legal abortion and health care and civil rights that aren't going to happen.  They follow the leader of the 'Opposition to Everything', the Piped Piper of the Left, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer who has said he will oppose Kavanaugh's confirmation with all his strength. But who cares. He would oppose gravity if he knew Isaac Newton was found to be a Republican.

Not Good Enough for Kavanaugh To Say He Will Follow Existing Law


Chuck Schumer keeps moving the goalposts with regards to the answers he expects a Supreme Court nominee to answer, declaring during an interview this morning that it’s no longer good enough for a nominee to say they will follow existing law. CBS News’ Norah O’Donnell asked Schumer about previous statements made by Judge Brett Kavanaugh, regarding Roe v. Wade being binding precedent, and why Schumer believes abortion rights are under threat if Kavanaugh is confirmed. 
"When you say you’ll follow binding precedent, that’s been a trick. It is not good enough for them to hide behind this shibboleth that ‘We’ll follow existing law,’ cause when they get on the bench, they change."
O’Donnell asked Schumer if there is anything that Senate Democrats can do to stop the nomination of Kavanaugh, given that Republicans hold a majority in the Senate.
“Yes, well, President Trump with the nomination of Judge Kavanaugh has fulfilled or is fulfilling two of his campaign promises. First, to undo women’s reproductive freedom; second to undo ACA." 
"So, I will oppose him with everything I’ve got." 
Go for it Chuck. The American public are getting tired of your over the top grandstanding and calling everyone you disagree with the far-right, and you and your hysterical minions being against everything that's being done to making America great again. Yeah, you and Nancy go for it Chuck.

Some Black Women Be All Pissed at Dems For Dissin' Maxine


A group of angry black women and their allies have fired off an angry letter to Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer, the leadership of the DNC and The Black Caucus.  They're ready to take off their hoop earrings and pull off their fake nails. The women are pissed at the Democratic Party because they won't stand up for Maxine Waters after she told supporters to harang, harass and go all ghetto on Trump administration officials wherever they find them. 
"We, the undersigned, write to express our full support for Congresswoman Maxine Waters, who has recently been unjustly attacked by Republicans and Democratic Party leadership for speaking truth to power in challenging the Trump Administration to do the right thing by ending a “Zero Tolerance” immigration policy. 
Further, we write to share our profound indignation and deep disappointment over your recent failure to protect Congresswoman Waters from unwarranted attacks from the Trump Administration and others in the GOP. That failure was further compounded by your decision to unfairly deride her as being “uncivil” and “un-American.” In doing so, we believe this mischaracterizes her call to action for peaceful democratic assembly and the exercise of her constitutional rights to free speech...."
Then putting on their best Al Sharpton suits, the angry group tried to put the fear in  democratic leadership claiming  shit's about to get real. Claiming disrespecting Maxine could cause the collapse of the party with an empty threat that if Pelosi and Schumer don’t kiss Waters’ ass they will abandoned the Democratic Party for good.
"Not supporting Congresswoman Waters hurts the party and threatens to erode an opportunity to continue to grow the Democratic Party with young leaders and voters. For Black women, who are the most loyal base of the Democratic Party and the Progressive Movement, Congresswoman Waters is our shero."
This letter was signed by a hundred or so black women. I did recognize a couple of names, one was Brittney Cooper, who once freaked out because a white man sat next to her on a train. The dead giveaway is the letter is signed by so many males with Reverend before their name. One signer is none other than the shameless race-hustler Al Sharpton himself who I suspect is quietly and unofficially behind it the whole thing............

In the Battle for the Soul of America, There Can Be Only One Winner


The Unholy Left went to battle against America in the summer of 1968 and hasn’t stopped fighting since. They hated Nixon, they hated Reagan, they hated G. W. Bush and now, boy do they hate Donald J. Trump. From the moment it dawned on them on election night that Trump was going to win, they have gone to the mattresses, seeking to undermine the validity of the election and bring down the president of the United States.

While we’re waiting for the Left to see the light, let’s turn the tables and start using their own weapons against them. The very first Rule in my Book of Rules is this: “Know Your Enemy, His Intentions, and His Weapons—and Use Them Against Him.” Tolerance is not a virtue, diversity is not a goal, and hate is sometimes a very useful, self-protective emotion. Tolerance for the intolerant is suicidal. Diversity has never in history produced a successful country or nation-state, only a body politic at constant war with itself. Passivity in the face of constant provocation is what our enemies are counting on.

They want you cowed, thinking that any pushback is illegitimate. They want you to think that you’re the bad guy in this morality play. That’s why their pet media frames every confrontation as “far-right” groups vs. “anti-fascist” protesters, pushed beyond the limits of their well-known tolerance to take matters into their own violent hands. You are hateful, intolerant, racist and brimming with more phobias than Freud ever dreamed possible.

There is no pacifying the Left, no accommodating it, no buying it off with a bit of appeasement here and there. They’re not in the political fray to play, they’re in it to win it. They’re not fiddling around the edges of the American experiment, they’re throwing everything critical theory has at us, questioning every institution and founding principle, and finding all of them worthy of destruction. Ascribing good motives to our friends across the aisle is a fool’s errand. Like most villains, they think of themselves as the heroes of their own twisted morality play, casting themselves as noble superheroes for truth, silver-surfing the “arc of history” as it bends toward their definition of justice. We, however, see their assault on our history, customs, and traditions as nothing of the sort; to us, they are the vandals who cannot abide something they had little or no hand in creating, and just want to see the world burn.”

There is no pacifying the Left, no accommodating it, no buying it off with a bit of appeasement here and there.  If we react with anything less than a full-throated defense of both Western and American civilization, we’re going to lose.

If Nothing Else, DJT Has Driven The Left Stark Raving Mad


David Brock's American Bridge Convinced
 Nazis Have Infiltrated DHS

The head researcher at David Brock's multimillion-dollar opposition research firm 'American Bridge' is convinced of a Twitter-born conspiracy that Nazis at the Trump administration's Department of Homeland Security use numerical code to transmit white supremacist messages through its press releases.
I'll pause while you finish laughing.... 
Pat Dennis is research director for American Bridge 21st Century's anti-Trump war room. The 47-person war room he leads, according to confidential documents obtained by the Washington Free Beacon last year, was bolstered by a $7.8 million budget in 2017. 
Dennis's interest in the conspiracy was piqued almost immediately after Twitter user Laurie Voss initially pointed out last Thursday that a DHS press release from February was filled with what Voss saw as Nazi code. Voss argued the release had both a 14-word headline and 14 bullet points (it actually has 13 bullet points), important because 14 is the number of words in "a famous white supremacist slogan" that, just like the DHS headline, starts with "we must secure." 
Voss also noted the use in a statistic of the number 88, "a Nazi dog whistle for Heil Hitler." "There is absolutely no doubt now that this article is intentionally a signal to Nazis," Voss concluded. Dennis, just 40 minutes after the initial tweet, announced he would be filing a FOIA on the controversy. Dennis did not respond to inquiries into how serious he is about the Nazi code theory or what exactly he asked for in his FOIA. A spokesman for American Bridge didn't respond to a request for comment on Dennis's interest in the theory. 
"This is a Twitter troll conspiracy theory that on its face is beneath any credible media outlet," a Trump administration spokesman told Buzzfeed News. 
American Bridge deems itself as "the political research engine of the opposition" and has been embraced by the Democratic Party. The group brags that it has "became the heart of the party's research and communication's infrastructure." It has in the past been revealed to be behind opposition research used by mainstream outlets such as the New York Times to attack Republican candidates.

We're Not Saying She's Old, But.........


Raging Trump Hater Rages Against Trump's Rage Junkies


You would think someone at the New York Times would tap Charles Blow on the shoulder and say Charlie, stop punching yourself in the face dude. Do you read what you post?

Charles Blow is a product of affirmative action, a proud graduate of the diploma mill 'Grambling State Unv'. Charles then got a seat at the table. Now through his protected privilege of being black and bi-sexual, he accepts large paychecks and sends he kids the ivy league schools while spewing leftist tripe and laughing at white America as he lights the table legs on fire.  Charles Blow is a prefect example of what is wrong with America.  

Blow's newest litter box liner titled 'Trump's Rage Junkies', he tries to convince us he's smart and Trump supporters are a bunch of lunatics thriving on rage he stirs in them. Blow, in his typical hypocritical fashion proceeds to punch himself in the face by spending the first third of the piece in his own leftist rage mode against Trump. I'd really like to think Charles is just stupid, but I've come to believe he is just filled with hate and a part of the brown power freak show the media would have you believe has swept the nation.

Here's the first few paragraphs of 'Trump's Rage Junkies'  
"It is truly a confounding time to be alive, to be an American. 
We are watching as a president of the United States openly lies, fabricates and exaggerates while two-fifths of the population cheers him for it. 
He spurns our allies and embraces our adversaries and people shrug. 
He, his congressional allies and his propaganda arm are waging open warfare on the Federal Bureau of Investigation in an effort to tarnish it before its inquiry into connections between the Trump campaign, family and associates and Russia can be made public. 
He is a racist who disparages black and brown people, whether they be immigrants, Muslims, people from Haiti and Africa, Barack Obama, the mayor of San Juan or Maxine Waters. People equivocate about it and excuse it. 
He is attacking the press in the most aggressive of terms so that what they reveal about him will be viewed with skepticism.
He is attempting to weaken our institutions, our protocols and conventions, our faith in the truth, our sense of honor and our respect for the rule of law. 
His unapologetic, unabashed crusade to fight off all efforts at racial and ethnic inclusion. They may not articulate it as such, but that is the nature of Trump’s policies: Promising to build a wall, disparaging Mexicans, separating immigrant families, the Muslim ban, decreasing even legal migration, denigrating protesting football players. Trump has vented an American racial anxiety, giving it power and a perch, giving it permission to be vocal and even violent...."
You punched yourself in the face again Charles. You rage eloquently as you write about Rage Junkies. Week after week you and your paper stir racial animosity and encourage undue fear on the left. Real rage Junkies are an easy lot to spot. They lash out. They make lists. They attack people verbally and physically. As in the case of people like the shrill banshee Joy Behar and other emotional wrecks who fret day-in day-out in the media about DJT, anger and rage are their weapons and the only emotions they have left.

Get a grip Charles. It's not rage you sense in Trump supporters, it's preservation of the American ideal we inherited. Is it perfect? No, it's not. But it won't ever be close with propagandist like you at work.  Believe me, if trump supporters were rage junkies as you say, you'd be a whole lot less comfortable in your Ivory Tower right now........
