Halloween in Chappaqua - Trick or Treason

Thank You MJA for the Linkage

Six Months and Millions Later, Still Nothing But Noise.

The illegal leaks from the grand jury to the media were correct in that an arrest would lead off the week’s news cycle and all but bury the Russian uranium scandal as well as Team Hillary’s funding of the Fusion GPS dossier. What today's charges really show is how little Robert Mueller really has. After nearly 6 months all he's got at this point is crumbs and table scraps. And for that you don't need a Special Counsel. 

Mueller threw the book at the scummy lawyer Paul Manfort with a twelve-count indictment that's intended to serve as valuable leverage as the special prosecutor tries to flip Manafort against Trump. This is all a last ditch effort by Mueller the especially conflicted prosecutor to save his own job in the face of increasing calls to resign.

This week the F.B.I. will finally produce documents to congressional investigators on Fusion GPS which will at the very least embarrass the F.B.I. and the Department of Justice. Mueller wants to distract from this because it exposes how James Comey, Mueller’s friend, is at the center of most of the created crimes dreamed up by President Trump’s enemies. This week the F.B.I. informant on the Uranium One investigation will communicate with congressional investigators. Mueller wants to distract from this too because Uranium One and the related scandals directly implicate Mueller and the entire Obama gangster government. 

The Manfort indictments are purely focused on alleged financial crimes and does not include any charges related to the question whether the Trump campaign colluded with Russia.  The left are giving themselves high-fives this morning as they think they can now smell Trump’s downfall and have fully and proudly aligned themselves with an unelected and unaccountable Deep State.  While the indictments don’t directly implicate the White House, it puts Mueller into god mode and erases any coverage of how the Obama regime, the Clintons and the Intelligence Community colluded to reverse the results of a legitimate election. Trump will rue the day that he didn’t fire Mueller.

Trick or Treaters of any age HERE

Cultural Terrorism Continues to Run Amok

Leaders at the church that George Washington attended decided that a plaque honoring the first president of the United States must be removed. Christ Church in Alexandria, Virginia will take down a memorial marking the pew where Washington sat with his family, saying it is not acceptable to all worshipers.

“The plaques in our sanctuary make some in our presence feel unsafe or unwelcome,” leaders said, a reference to the fact that Washington was a slaveholder. ”Some visitors and guests who worship with us choose not to return because they receive an unintended message from the prominent presence of the plaques. Many in our congregation feel a strong need for the church to stand clearly on the side of ‘all are welcome- no exceptions,’” they concluded.

A memorial to Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee will also come down. The decision comes in the wake of renewed controversy over whether statues honoring Civil War figures should be no longer honored.  President Trump expressed concern that the censoring of Confederate generals would lead to dishonoring Thomas Jefferson and George Washington as well. - Read More

Seems to me some people should do a little soul searching, and maybe give a little thought to that Forgiveness thing.......

Washington Free Beacon Claims They Were The ‘Republican’ Who First Hired Fusion GPS

"Since its launch in February of 2012, the Washington Free Beacon has retained third party firms to conduct research on many individuals and institutions of interest to us and our readers. In that capacity, during the 2016 election cycle we retained Fusion GPS to provide research on multiple candidates in the Republican presidential primary, just as we retained other firms to assist in our research into Hillary Clinton. All of the work that Fusion GPS provided to the Free Beacon was based on public sources, and none of the work product that the Free Beacon received appears in the Steele dossier. The Free Beacon had no knowledge of or connection to the Steele dossier, did not pay for the dossier, and never had contact with, knowledge of, or provided payment for any work performed by Christopher Steele. Nor did we have any knowledge of the relationship between Fusion GPS and the Democratic National Committee, Perkins Coie, and the Clinton campaign.

Representatives of the Free Beacon approached the House Intelligence Committee today and offered to answer what questions we can in their ongoing probe of Fusion GPS and the Steele dossier. But to be clear: We stand by our reporting, and we do not apologize for our methods. We consider it our duty to report verifiable information, not falsehoods or slander, and we believe that commitment has been well demonstrated by the quality of the journalism that we produce. The First Amendment guarantees our right to engage in news-gathering as we see fit, and we intend to continue doing just that as we have since the day we launched this project."

Happy Birthday You Annoying Old Witch

The woman has been lying and covering it up all her life, and I’m sure she believes there’s no one better than she at creating a path strewn with so much confusion and ambiguity that it’s impossible to nail her for what she obviously did. But maybe she’s not as good as she thought she was. Strictly in terms of public knowledge, it’s now looks like to everyone paying attention that Hillary was trying to buy dirt on Trump without a paper trail to show she was doing it. (The fact that Christopher Steele’s sources were from the Kremlin puts a whole new spin on the “collusion with Russia” thing, and that’s another post all its own.)

Is Hillary going to escape legal culpability for lying on her FEC report like she escaped it for her e-mail felonies? She doesn’t have Loretta Lynch and James Comey around to protect her anymore, and no one has to worry about the precedent they’d set by coming down legally on a current presidential nominee. And the statute is not ambiguous. If Hillary for America didn’t disclose that they were paying Perkins Coie to hire Fusion GPS, then they lied and they’re in noncompliance with the statute. And then there's the whole "Uranium Thing." Almost anything that happens to Hillary is too lenient, but I’m not fussy.

The woman has been on a 40-year crime spree and escaped any penalty by wielding influence with the people who could hold her to account but are unwilling to do so. Anything that makes it official Hillary broke the law works for me. - Read More


The moment that a story starts hurting the Democrats the media loses interest. This explains the media’s ho-hum coverage of the confirmation that Hillary Clinton paid for the notorious “pee tape” dossier.  Even the Washington Post seemed embarrassed by its own scoop, nonchalantly reporting the FBI’s role in this sick farce in a few bland paragraphs deep in the story. The Post’s commentators and editorialists quickly moved into action, dismissing the story as insignificant.

The same pundits who pretended to tremble at dark forces outside the country trying to “tip the election” now say it is perfectly normal and even commendable that Hillary paid a foreign source to smear her opponent.

Welcome Home Hillary

The mudslinging and scandal-mongering section of the Trump Psychopathic Derangement Ward has been scraping deeper and less fruitfully into their barrel lately. The weekly festival of hysteria has sputtered down to a pathetic squeak last week with the claim by the race-baiter of the day that the president mishandled a call of condolence to the widow of a black soldier.

But as Ma Clinton returns home from her overseas Madam "Should-Have-Been" President book tour to a country that is finally beginning to look seriously at what the Clinton Foundation, former president Clinton, and then-Secretary of State Clinton did in the Uranium One affair.  The combination of gifts and pledges to the Clinton Foundation by interested parties of somewhere between  $131 million and $145 million, and the approval by the secretary of state and Attorney General Eric Holder, as is required under national-security legislation, of the sale of substantial American uranium resources to Russia in 2010, are a good deal worthier of official scrutiny than is the phantasmagorical charade of Trump-Russian collusion. And a bird is getting ready to start singing.

Had there been even a hint Donald Trump had any part in such a sequence of transactions, the press and Resistance character-assassination squads would darken the air with their insentient salvos of calls of treason, and all the hot-air-balloon-brained film stars in Weinsteinwood and Late-Night pseudo-comedians would be screaming like banshees.

And now it looks like, just as I have said here many times, there's gonna be a lot of egg on peoples faces before all this political nonsense over.  As the Democratic National Committee is imploding and in shambles, we now hear Hillary Clinton’s campaign and the DNC violated federal campaign finance law by hiding their payments for the infamous Donald Trump Dossier, as another bomb goes off in the Democrat's dugout. 

Welcome Home Hillary........

You Suck. Go Away......and Take That Annoying Little Man John McCain With You!

"The anti-Trump media has been treating RINO Senator Jeff Flake as if he is some sort of heroic figure after he announced that he would not be running for reelection next year. The Arizonan made a big deal out of showboating on the Senate floor and delivering a denunciation of Trump’s “McCarthyism” that had the press gushing as if it were the sequel to Jimmy Stewart’s “Mr. Smith Goes to Washington”. The truth was far simpler than the meme that Flake is a martyr saving America from Trump." - Donn Marten

Image Borrowed Swiped from A Nod To The Gods.

Jeff Flake is spearheading an amnesty bill as his last hurrah. Think about how ridiculous that is. This would be the same Sen. Jeff Flake who cited his immigration views as one reason he doesn’t have a home in the GOP anymore. So of course, let’s put a guy who readily admits he doesn’t represent the GOP on immigration in charge of negotiating a “Dreamer Bill,” being crafted as a response to President Trump’s rescinding of Obama’s (illegal) DACA order.

The proposed E-Verify provision is the only way to actually begin to stop illegal immigration. It stops employers from hiring illegals and discourages illegal immigrants from crossing the border in the first place because they know they won’t be able to work without proper permission. It’s a fair, common sense solution everyone should support. Yet, Repubs didn’t even try to keep it in the bill. No fight, no argument, no give and take. They just punted on it immediately. This is basically like walking into a car dealership, telling the salesman you’ll pay full MSRP, but you want him to throw in a few air fresheners.

CNN Downplays Apple Ad After Conservatives Have Field Day

CNN has been having a rough time since the 2016 election season. They made the decision to completely give up all journalistic standards and launch a coordinated effort to destroy Donald Trump. Fredo Cuomo, Don Lemon, Anderson Cooper, Brian Stelter, Jim Acosta, all names that have become synonymous with lies and deceit.

After the network unveiled there new ad campaign yesterday, conservatives took to the internet and had a field day at their expense. It's hard to really understand what CNN was thinking here. They had to know they'd be mocked and that after #CNNBlackmail, it would backfire. And you know the world is heading full speed toward the apocalypse when CNN is using the hashtag #factsfirst

By today, like many others, Greg Tomlin had issued this response video, devastating the media’s pathetic take on basic facts and matters of science they wish to deny: 

It's Gonna to take a long time for CNN to get their credibility back, if that is even possible. But it won't be by simplistic ad campaigns if it does....

Another of Wealth & Privilege Vying For Crazy Negro Comment of the Week Award

Take Your Meds and Have a Little Nap, Harry. 

DT - Harry Belafonte is most famous for “The Banana Boat Song” which means that unless you are 60 years or older and love calypso music, you probably don’t even know who he is. He is also a black activist who has a problem with any white President of the United States. While he has laid into George W. Bush in the past, it was nothing compared about what he had to say about Donald Trump.

Over the weekend Belafonte made, what he announced as, his last public appearance at Carnegie Music Hall in Pittsburgh. Ever the entertainer, he really went out with a bang. According to The Guardian, he started out by saying the country “made a mistake” in electing Donald Trump and then dropped this:
"I think the next mistake might very well be the gas chamber and what happened to Jews [under] Hitler is not too far from our door."
Many on the left have compared Trump to Hitler, but that’s usually in the context of the President enforcing our immigration laws, protecting us from foreign terrorists, or calling out the fake news liberal media. What Belafonte has done is on a completely different level. He’s accusing the freely-elected President of the United States of preparing to commit genocide against his own citizens. Of taking steps to eliminate an entire race of people.

What is this based on? I have no idea. This is still the US and we still have the Constitution in place that limits the President’s powers, including any sort of genocide plans. Also there is that thing where Trump’s racism is based entirely on liberal lies and leftist hysteria, but they’re not going t admit to that.

The reality is, the leftist Resistance shares more in common with fascists.  They want to disarm the people. They want to silence any ideas they disagree with. They want to force people to conform to their ideology. They are perfectly fine with using violence to get their way and to crush dissent. The biggest comparison between leftists and fascists however is that they are all lemmings who go along with whatever crazy and violent thing their party leaders say.  And no one bats an eye when Belafonte says, “Trump is Hitler and wants to kill all black people.”

Note: Speaking as a good leftist that he is, (inspired by the singer, actor and Communist activist Paul Robeson) on December 9, 2012 in an interview with Al Sharpton on MSNBC, Belafonte expressed dismay that many political leaders in the United States opposed the policies of President Obama even after his re-election: "The only thing left for Barack Obama to do is to work like a third-world dictator and just put all of these guys in jail."

It's Like Hitting Themselves in the Face With a Pie

In a stunning new ad campaign unveiled to reiterate to us all who holds the true guarantees of the truth, CNN is lodging an attack at those claiming an apple is a banana. The ad begins with a red apple on a white screen:
“This is an apple. Some people might try to tell you it’s a banana. They might scream, ‘Banana, banana, banana,’ over and over again. They might put banana in all caps. You might even start to believe this is a banana. But it’s not. This is an apple.”
The words “facts first,” then flash on the screen before the CNN logo. The move comes after The New York Times launched an ad campaign of their own calling out false allegations of “fake news” by President Trump and his team of pundits.

Their 30 sec ad features a white screen with black type and a series of sound bites beginning with the words “the truth is.” “The truth is hard. The truth is hard to find", before the CNN logo flashes on the screen.  And They Should Know. 

While CNN’s ad campaign attacks those who call an apple a banana, they also pay Chris "Fredo" Cuomo and Fareed Zakaria, both well known for shouting “banana.”

I'm Sure That Show No One Heard of Was Really Popular.

I've heard the name Chelsea Handler before and remember seeing her on TV once or twice. I remember her coming across as a mouthy self important celebrity who looked like a worn out liquored up New Orleans street walker, ridden hard and long past her prime. I had no idea she was a comedian. I totally missed that. But evidently she claims to be.

I looked her up on the google and found out this is the same woman who promised to move to Spain after Trump won. Apparently, that never happened because, in a shocking turn of events, she's been hosting a talk show all this time. It's on Netflix, and if you've never met a single person who's watched it, you're not alone. 

It's probably because the vulgar, unfunny, comedian spent most of the time lashing out about politics. She hates Trump, despises Republicans, and loves posting vulgar pseudo-jokes about the people she hates on the tweeter. You could call it "constant rage". 

Anyway, the show you never heard of is going off the air.  According to the AP, Handler says she is ending her once a week Netflix talk show after two seasons in order to focus on "political activism". Handler says in a statement that she plans to devote as much time as she can to become "a more knowledgeable and engaged citizen" and take on projects that have personal significance. Quitting a once-a-week talk show to "focus on activism," absolutely reeks of an excuse. I say more likely she has no ratings and is going off to rehab to dry out.......or maybe just hang out at Chappaqua and get blasted on Vodka shots with Hillary. 

It should be pointed out that services like Netflix never release ratings information. They don't talk about how many times a show is streamed, and they don't like to get into discussions about budgetary matters. But there's one truism in the entertainment industry, it's that no one walks away and leaves money on the table.

Regardless of her reasons, it's nice to know there's one less vulgar, unfunny and unattractive left-wing talk show host out there.

And To Think, I Was Finally Ready To Offer Up Myself To Playboy!

Just My luck. After years of resisting the urge to selflessly volunteer and offer myself up to the photographers of Playboy being the visually stunning example of the curvy Thirty.....Twenty-something placental mammal that I am, the magazine goes all wacko. Even before the old sleazeball Hefner's Pajama's are cold, the magazine goes to a new marketing strategy to appeal to an obviously sexually confused younger generation. Playboy wants all y'all to “Meet your November 2017 Playmate Ines Rau.” In this case don't get a hold of yourself. There's something else.....Ines ain't really a girl. The French model is Playboy’s “First Transgender Playmate.”

Apparently it’s not the models first appearance in the magazine (it’s a little difficult to tell – the accompanying article is long on the “humanity’s halting shift toward acceptance of gender identities beyond the male-female binary” gobbledygook and short on actual English). Supposedly she they were in a special supplement issue in 2014.
"These days Ines is a globe-trotting model with an irrepressible passion for self-love and honesty."
Is “self-love” another non-binary gender identity? If not, it will be any week now. We also learn that Ines is “a hippie, a tomboy and a party girl.”  The more gender inclusive masturbation magazine will hit newsstands soon and by capitalizing on the growing fascination with the kinky allure of transgenderism will probably generate plenty of media buzz with the left. Chicks with dicks are the future, at least according to Playboy.

Irony really is dead. And they can definitely forget calling me to bail them out!

Liberals Try To Connect With Normal Americans. It Goes Poorly

Key Democrats met secretly to confer about the party’s future as America approached the one-year anniversary of their stunning and hilarious humiliation by Donald Trump. The key question they sought to answer: “How can we Democrats appeal to those Jesus-loving, racist idiots who hate science and don’t live on the coast like everyone we know?”
Sen Chuck Schumer opened the discussion: 
"We’re here to freely exchange ideas in an atmosphere of openness and unlimited inquiry. With that in mind, your program has a list of the things you can’t say, like ‘illegal alien’ and ‘Christmas.’ It also has a handy cheat sheet of everyone’s preferred pronouns. Mine are ‘he’ and ‘him,’ while Senator Menendez’s are ‘convict’ and ‘Number 675973.’ Also, be sure to observe the rule about not mansplaining, which should not be a problem with this group.”
He then turned it over to 105 year-old Nancy Pelosi, who asked, “Where am I?” After Schumer whispered in her ear, she began:
 “With the economy booming, the stock market setting records, and America defeating ISIS, things have never been worse. That’s why we need to keep The Resistance going, because it’s been a huge success so far in my district in San Francisco and, I’m sure, in your districts in Manhattan, Chicago, and Havana. And we need to expand our party, which means we need to convince dirty, stupid, transphobic normal Americans to come to grips with their own failings and join us.”
“We could tell them they’re stupid even more often,” suggested Al Franken.

“And racist,” suggested Maxine Waters.

“Also, Islamophobic,” said Keith Ellison.

“In my state, I can go potty with girls!” said California’s Gavin Newsom. 
“Clearly, there’s something wrong with these people, so we need to consult with someone with a genuine connection with normal Americans. Sadly, Hillary Clinton isn’t here to help us. If anyone connects with Middle America, it’s her. Unfortunately, she’s fallen and she can’t get up.”
Pelosi then made the “drinky drinky” gesture, and the crowd nodded. 

 “Now look,” Schumer said, frustrated. “We have to defend 22 Senate seats next year, many in red states. How the hell are we going to do that?” 

“Move left,” said Bernie Sanders. 

“I know!” came a shrill, grating voice from the back of the room. Hillary Clinton entered with a bandage around her head and limping from the broken toe she got when she “slipped” while wearing her trademark high heels. She took the mic and the room fell still.
“We can start treating normal Americans with respect. We can honor them for their hard work, patriotism, and devotion to family. We can stop insulting their religious beliefs and trying to shove our urban blue state values down their throats. When criminals murder fellow citizens, we can choose not to blame law-abiding gun owners, and instead of calling them ‘racists’ for voting for Trump, talk to them and learn why they felt he was offering them more than the Democratic Party.”
The room was silent, and the crowd sat staring with jaws slack. 

“And…and…,” she said, then steadied herself on the podium, looking around confused.  

“Are you all right, Madame Should-Be-President?” asked Schumer, handing her a goblet of Chardonnay. She drank it in one gulp. “I don’t understand…what happened?” she asked. 

 “You were just mumbling random words, crazy talk,” Schumer said. “It didn’t make any sense at all.”

She is Just Maxine Waters in a Cowboy Hat

Now that blockbuster revelations have emerged that the Obama regime knew about a huge bribery scam over that Russian uranium deal that went down when Hillary Clinton was Secretary of State and covered it up, it is time for the media to launch another weapon of mass distraction.  That Sgt. Johnson and his grieving spouse have become pawns in the left’s war on Trump is a testament as to just how vile and embittered that the Democrats have become after their putrid excuse for a candidate lost the election.

Democrats wasted no time in joining with the media to launch yet another smear campaign and of course, a member of the racist Congressional Black Caucus is behind it, Florida Congresswoman Frederica Wilson. Here is a post we did in 2010 "Just When You Thought They Couldn't Get Any Crazier....Along Comes Frederica" when she was first elected.   

Wilson has recently been in the media cheering for Trump’s impeachment and is at the head of the lynch mob for this one and was in the car with the family when Trump allegedly made his “disrespectful remarks” to the widow. With the President saying one thing and the media saying the opposite, it's pretty clear this is a diversion from more damaging stories of  massive Political Corruption on the left. 

Thank You MJA for the Linkage!

The REAL Russian Colluders

The Hill this morning posted an article that appears to uncover hard evidence that Bill and Hillary Clinton engaged in a veritable racketeering scheme with the Russians so as to line their own pockets. The piece centers on what happened before then-President Barack “approved a controversial deal in 2010 giving Moscow control of a large swath of American uranium.” Apparently, FBI agents obtained “substantial evidence that Russian nuclear industry officials were engaged in bribery, kickbacks, extortion and money laundering designed to grow Vladimir Putin’s atomic energy business inside the United States.” 
"Federal agents used a confidential U.S. witness working inside the Russian nuclear industry to gather extensive financial records, make secret recordings and intercept emails as early as 2009 that showed Moscow had compromised an American uranium trucking firm with bribes and kickbacks in violation of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, FBI and court documents show. They also obtained an eyewitness account — backed by documents — indicating Russian nuclear officials had routed millions of dollars to the U.S. designed to benefit former President Bill Clinton’s charitable foundation during the time Secretary of State Hillary Clinton served on a government body that provided a favorable decision to Moscow, sources told The Hill....."  
"The racketeering scheme was conducted “with the consent of higher level officials” in Russia who “shared the proceeds” from the kickbacks, one agent declared in an affidavit years later........" 
This is what Real Journalism looks like and I recommend reading the piece in full, as it goes into greater detail regarding the actions of the Clintons , Barack Obama and Eric Holder. 

What’s interesting is all this seems to prove Donald Trump was right to hammer Hillary on the campaign trail about her dealings with Russia, yet leftist media tried to refute his claims, saying he lied or distorted the truth.

Satanic Drag Queens and The Michelle Obama Neighborhood Library

While most Americans are busy working and providing for their family, progressives have full-on invaded one the last sanctuaries of reprieve, childhood development. The race is on in many communities to prove just how “progressive” they are when it comes to being inclusive....and what’s more all-inclusive that a Satanic-looking drag queen reading to children? Fittingly, in the Michelle Obama Public Library, located in Long Beach, California, a demonic drag queen with giant horns protruding from his head was tapped to read to children.

The Long Beach PUBLIC Library touted the event on social media and on its calendar of events. But, when the story drew national attention, Facebook and Twitter posts were both scrubbed. The library explained in a Facebook post Monday that the city of Long Beach deleted the earlier post because it “received several hateful and harmful comments to the LGBTQ community and was no longer a productive conversation. The Long Beach Public Library will continue to host events that celebrate the rich diversity of our City and all its residents,” the statement defiantly concluded.

At Least She Didn't Blame It On The Russians......Well Not Yet.

DT - Big news out of London: Hillary Clinton fell down and broke her toe. Actually, that’s not big news because Hillary falls down all the time, whether it be fainting spells or getting taken out by an errant golf ball.  The actual interesting thing about this is how completely full of shit she is in explaining how she broke her toe. She may not be running for anything anymore, but she still has the Clinton Lie Machine cranked up to 11.

Now here’s how it happened according to Hillary:
“I was running down the stairs in heels with a cup of coffee in hand, I was talking over my shoulder and my heel caught and I fell backwards."
We seem to have some physics problems here from the woman who claims Republicans don’t believe in science. If her heel caught, that would propel her forward, not backwards. If she had slipped and her feet came out from underneath her, that would cause her to go backwards, but that ain’t what she said.

Next, we have some anatomy problems, again from the woman who takes the science-believing moral high-ground any chance she gets. Toes are on the front of the foot, not the back. If she somehow managed to defy physics by falling backwards after catching her heel, her toes wouldn’t have come in contact with anything. How did she manage to bust a toe with this unlikely scenario?

The answer is because she is such a lying sack of crap she feels the need to lie about something as unimportant as this. She literally can’t turn it off. That’s how being a compulsive liar works. And to prove this explanation isn’t all that truthful, she used it to score some political points:
“I tried to get up and it really hurt. I’ve broken my toe. I’ve received excellent care from your excellent health service." 
See what she did there? She gave a shout-out to Britain’s socialized medicine system as way to attack the health care system in the United States, which she is partially responsible for BTW.  Of course she didn’t mention that as a rich and famous person she received special treatment while the average person in England would have to wait to get the same treatment. What she should have said was that the health service was excellent for the privileged few like her.

"How Many Fingers Am I Holding Up, Winston?"

If your job is "head of diversity," you don't have to design computers or software or anything like that. But you can fail at your job, and you would do that by acknowledging that there's any concept of diversity apart from what the cultural orthodoxy says. Denise Young Smith has this job at Apple, and apparently she engages in a little too much independent thought because one day she got a little tired of the idea that diversity can't be about anything but racial and sexual identity. So she said so, and that's where her trouble started:
"There can be 12 white, blue-eyed, blonde men in a room and they're going to be diverse too because they're going to bring a different life experience and life perspective to the conversation. Diversity is the human experience. I get a little bit frustrated when diversity or the term diversity is tagged to the people of color, or the women, or the LGBT."
If the quote sounds entirely unobjectionable to you, that's because it is. Diversity of thought and experience are much more meaningful than diversity of skin pigmentation or sexual proclivity, particularly when you consider that the former categories are much more likely to impact how a person does his or her job than the latter. Young Smith clearly got frustrated by the realization that "diversity" never seems to deal with anything but identity politics, and expressed out loud her wish that people would think more broadly about what it really means and what it can be.

Ever Notice Corporate Diversity Officers are 
Almost Always Black Women??
That, unsurprisingly, turned out to be a Thought Crime.

TechCrunch reported on Friday that Young Smith sent an email to her team at Apple earlier that day in which she apologized for her comments at the conference:
"Last week, while attending a summit in Bogota, I made some comments as part of a conversation on the many factors that contribute to diversity and inclusion. I regret the choice of words I used to make this point. I understand why some people took offense. My comments were not representative of how I think about diversity or how Apple sees it. For that, I'm sorry."
The word "diversity" is like many words the left bastardizes. It's not really about diversity at all. Denise Young Smith got out of line and thought for herself, and got it in her head that maybe diversity could be something more valuable and meaningful than the political left wants it to be. And for that, she got smacked down and thoroughly chastened. Fall into line, or else.

Today's "culture of diversity" offers no option but to fall in line. When you're a champion of diversity, there is only one acceptable way to think. Think about that.

And Lo, For The Gus Bus Shall Enter The Valley of Death

Auburn vs. LSU 
2:30 PM CT - CBS

The last time Auburn Univ. defeated LSU in Tiger Stadium Nick Saban was still two coaching gigs away from Alabama, I was a sixteen year old music student at the Conservatoire de Lyon and Bill Clinton was President of the United States.  It was 1999.

Some say the most exciting and memorable games ever played in the rich history of Tiger Stadium were played between Auburn and the LSU.  Saturday Auburn and the "Gus Bus" once again enter Death Valley, this time ranked as the #10 team in the nation. But as any college football fan knows, when the game clock starts those numbers are mostly meaningless. 

The Gus Bus has been shifting gears, and the Tigers played last week......more like the LSU Tigers for a change. The Expert Sports Monkeys are saying this is a mismatch, and it may very well be true.

But if all the Tiger defense starters are all healthy and able to play this week and can do as well as their stand-ins did last week slowing the run and make the Auburn Whiz Kid throw the ball, the Tigers could make a real game of it. The only secondary Auburn has faced as good as LSU, they loss to.  
And like all first time QB's visit to Tiger stadium, if you rattle easy they will see it, and they'll be coming for ya. Ask Jalen Hurts.  It also depends how well the mostly freshman offensive line can handle a very good Auburn defense that is playing at the top of their game. So if the Tigers have recovered from their (fill in the blank) that plagued them before the Florida game and can keep it close, I think it makes Auburn ripe for a possible upset. 

Yea, The Football Gods have not looked kindly upon the Auburn Tigers when they travel to The Valley of Death.  Auburn has come into Tiger Stadium ranked in the Top 10 three times. They are 0-3 in those trips. 

I Say UPSET: LSU by 3  

SEC Games of the Week:

South Carolina vs Tennessee - 11AM CT - ESPN
Butch Jones is on the hot seat bigtime. This week he plans to start his freshman QB to try and get things going. I think it's exactly what the Vols need to do. They get off to a slow start but Butch and the Boys in Orange(GRRR!) put it on the Gamecocks. 

I Say Vols by 7  

Arkansas vs. Alabama - 6:15 PM CT - ESPN
Okay, for this game to have any semblance of a fair fight, I call on the SEC to require both teams wear their Red Helmets and Red Jerseys at the same time in this game. Do I hear second??

I say The Tide by 20+ 

Texas Aggies vs. The Florida Suspects - 6PM CT ESPN2
It took the full 4 quarters for Alabama to shake off A&M last week. As much as I hate to say it, I think the Aggies are a better team then their record.

This week the Aggies travel to the Swamp to play The Squirrel and his Gators, who will be wearing some butt-ugly swamp green camouflage type uniform, either as punishment for last weeks loss, or to attempt to actually sneak up on the goal line and try to score some points.........

I Say Aggies by 10+ 

Went 3-0 last week making Diogenes 12-5 YTD. going into Week 7.

Dear Hollywood: Don’t Ever Lecture America Again

“Hollywood has the best moral compass, because it has compassion.” - Harvey Weinstein 

People of my age probably know “Welcome to the Jungle” by Guns and Roses pretty well. The song is about Hollywood and the ugly side most people don’t think about.

"And you’re a very sexy girl very hard to please You can taste the bright lights but you won’t get there for free In the jungle welcome to the jungle"

And this isn’t in any way a new thing. Hollywood has always been a dark place, pretty much from the beginning. But it does seem that the high school popularity contest taken to the adult level has gotten worse with its preaching to the “deplorables” on the other side of the San Gabriel Mountains. It honestly thinks it has a duty to guide American culture and the country’s collective morality. That Hollywood thinks this is just indicative of how completely nuts the place has gone.

Don’t preach to us anymore Hollywood. There is a reason fewer people are watching your movies and it’s not JUST because you aren’t putting out anything good. You wish. America, in very large part is just moving on. People used to care about the Oscars. Now they don’t – or at least many more don’t these days. Many people are coming to realize that the product Hollywood sells, a Kardashian world, is bankrupt increasingly in every sense. It’s a waste of time. Hollywood has had it good for so long that it has forgotten that its not an industry like energy, or farming. It’s a luxury item. Hollywood is paid to entertain. If yet another CGIed up Marvel comic book movie doesn’t come out the world will go on. In fact if Hollywood just went away completely the world would go on.  

Hollywood seems to hold its customers in contempt. This is not a good strategy for an industry of actors and jugglers. All Americans have to do is just turn off the TV, or stop going to the movies. (Something more and more of us are doing anyway.) Just ask the NFL how it feels.

Thank You MJA for the Linkage!

When "Shut-Up" Turns to Twitter Screams

The left has waged a cultural war against American values for generations,  a cultural war with very little if any serious pushback. In the past year their culture war has surged into the streets and onto the game fields. Even though the intellectual leftist totalitarians have controlled the cultural conversation and disparaged the values of Americans, sports generally resisted the cultural left’s hatred of America. Since the election of President Donald Trump though, the totalitarian left have made their move on football. It was supposed to be a win/win for the left.

The totalitarian left has always hated football (and NASCAR) because the sport appeared to be particularly patriotic and appealed to white working class men. The left never like all that flag waving even if it was paid for with tax dollars. Still, the left tried to disparage football but always failed to bring the sport down. The totalitarian left have had one foothold in the sport - sports writers. Sports writers, such as the fabled Hunter Thompson who later went on to write about the political world, had one “talent”. They wielded a vast vocabulary and fevered (often due to drugs or drink) imaginations. This ability to describe the same action in fresh ways made these “creative” writers a natural for the sports world. After all, how many ways can you describe the same action in fresh new ways? A ball is thrown, the ball is caught, the player moves in this or that direction in failure or triumph.  These refugees from “creative” writing courses at colleges, most from the left wing of the political spectrum, couldn’t play the games, but they could describe them and shape the public perception. We went from Hunter Thompson to Keith Olbermann. 

In the cultural landscape the dream merchants of Hollywood had a singular role. Hollywood used to cheerlead America through tough times such as World War II. Hollywood used to make great biopics about figures such as Christopher Columbus. Hollywood used to manipulate public opinion to extol American values particularly when those old Jews from New York ran the studios. Those old Jews understood the debt they owed to the country and genuinely loved America. That was the old world. Donald Trump for years saw what was happening as the cheerleading for America became a ceaseless attack against America.

In 2017, citizen Donald Trump became President Donald J. Trump, and the world changed again. The silence from those who like America was broken. The old “shut-up” turned to Twitter screams. Now the fight was on.

NFL: "No one could damage an industry better then us." Hollywood: "Hold my beer"

Hollywood will not easily recover from Harvey Weinstein -- not for a long time. The hypocrisy level has hit Defcon 1, 9.9 on the Richter scale. Hollywood’s politics have always been a self-serving charade, a liberal masquerade for a rapacious and lubricious lifestyle. But now, thanks to the Weinstein scandal, we see it more clearly than ever. And it couldn't be more repellent. Can you imagine how it’s going to be watching this year’s Oscars as they scoop up awards while making political pronouncements on whatever cause strikes their superficially conventional (but personally sick) fancies, especially if those causes express veiled contempt for the morals of those clods in flyover country who are supposed to be their audience? - Roger Simon
