Fake fake fake. A liar too. From Daily Caller:

Warren’s ‘Billionaire Tears’ Mug Is Sold Through A Billionaire-Run Company
A billionaire stands to benefit financially from the sales of Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s new “Billionaire Tears” mug.

The $25 mug, which Warren’s presidential campaign introduced Wednesday, is sold through Shopify, a Canadian e-commerce company whose founder and CEO, Tobias Lütke, is worth an estimated $2.8 billion.

“Savor a warm, slightly salty beverage of your choice in this union-made mug as you contemplate all the good a wealth tax could do: universal healthcare, student debt cancellation, universal free college, and more,” the mug’s product page states.

If I was going to spend money for a new coffee mug, I would save myself ten dollars and get this one from Amazon

The Numbers

Most of the current Democrat politicians are horribly innumerate. They promise free shit to keep the votes rolling in but they have zero clue how to pay for all of it. From the Foundation for Economic Education:

Entitlement Liabilities Are a Graver Threat to the Next Generation of Americans Than Climate Change
On January 31, 1940, Miss Ida Fuller received a check for $22.54. She was the first person to retire under the Old-Age, Survivors, and Disability Insurance (OASDI) scheme, better known as Social Security. At the time of her retirement in 1939, she had paid just $22 in Social Security taxes. Ms. Fuller lived to be 100, cashing over $20,000 worth of Social Security checks.

How Social Security Is Funded
If she had only paid $22.54 in contributions, where did the $20,000 Ms. Fuller received in Social Security payouts come from? It came, as it does now, from the taxpayers of the day. As of 2019, your employer deducts 6.2 percent of your wages up to $132,900 a year, matches this amount, and sends it to the Social Security Administration (SSA). The SSA deposits this with the Treasury, which spends it and receives Treasury bonds in return. This is the fabled trust fund that guarantees Social Security.

The growing problem:

This is only going to get worse. According to Census Bureau projections, by 2030 each 100 working-age Americans will be supporting 35 retirees, and this could rise to 42 by 2060. Another way to think of this is to calculate the number of retirees each worker must support. In 1946, the burden of one retiree was shared between 42 workers. Today, according to the SSA, roughly three workers cover each retiree’s Social Security and Medicare benefits. By 2030, however, there will be only two workers supporting each retiree.

A paper trail - Ukraine

| No Comments

Looks like some Ukranians are doing some leaking of their own - from The Federalist Papers:

BREAKING, Leaked Documents Show Tens Of Millions From Ukraine Paid To Kerry, Biden Jr Fund, Report
Documents have been discovered that show cash transfers from a Ukrainian gas company to a slush fund operated by several major Democrats.

The slush fund is reportedly run by former Secretary of State John Kerry, John Kerry Jr., another Kerry family member and Hunter Biden, Michael Coudrey reported.

“Leaked documents from the Ukrainian General Prosecutor’s office indicate complex money transfers from foreign sources into the control of a ‘slush fund’ owned and operated by Devon Archer, John Kerry Senior, John Kerry Junior, Heinz Jr, and Hunter Biden,” he said.

Screen caps and links at the site. Fun watching this all unravel. Could not be happening to a nicer group of people.

Joe Biden - clueless

| No Comments

From Marc Thiessen writing at the New York Post:

Sorry, Joe: Team Obama refused to arm Ukraine at all
Joe Biden has said that by holding up vital military aid to Ukraine, President Trump “used the power and resources of the United States to pressure a sovereign nation, a partner that is still under direct assault from Russia … to subvert the rule of law.”

That’s rich. The aid in question is lethal military assistance that the Obama-Biden administration refused to give Ukraine.

In 2014, after Russia annexed Crimea and began arming separatists in eastern Ukraine with tanks, armored vehicles and rocket launchers, Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko came to Washington to plead for weapons to defend his country. In an impassioned address to a joint session of Congress — with Biden sitting directly behind him — Poroshenko said his country appreciated the nonlethal assistance he was getting, but declared “one cannot win a war with blankets.”

The Obama-Biden administration was unmoved. The Wall Street Journal reported at the time that “President Barack Obama stuck to his refusal to provide weapons or other lethal military gear to Ukraine.” Why?

Team Obama feared that lethal aid would provoke Moscow.

More at the site - if these actions were public knowledge during the Obama administration, he would have been impeached in 2014. The current impeachment hearings are just a distraction to cover up the Obama / Biden / Kerry corruption.

From ArtNet:

California Is Spending $2.4 Million to Build the World’s Largest Permanent Installation of Climate Change-Themed Art
California’s clean-air agency has commissioned the world’s largest permanent public installation of climate changed-themed art. Large-scale works by Allora & CalzadillaRefik AnadolKameelah Janan RasheedNoé MontesAndrea Polli, and Tomás Saraceno will appear in the common areas of the California Air Resources Board’s new headquarters in Riverside, California, opening in late 2021.

The agency went through 600 applications before it made its selection of “world-class art by artists whose work embraces environmental and equity themes,” said board chair Mary Nichol in a statement. The works themselves will be announced in 2020.

“The conversation about climate change should always include the subject of climate justice,” artist Noe Montes said in an email. The photographer was inspired to apply for the project after witnessing the health problems experienced by residents in the Jordan Downs housing project in South Los Angeles due to air pollution from the logistics industry.

Must be nice to have that kind of dispoasble income. Oh. Wait. The State of California is broke. They can't afford this.

Just for the hell of it I DuckDuckGo'd (much better than that other search engine) this new building and found the press release for their new temple:

CARB unveils design for its new Southern California Headquarters
The California Air Resources Board (CARB) announced today that it has selected the design of its new Southern California headquarters. Located on a 19-acre site near the campus of UC Riverside, the approximately 380,000-square-foot facility will be one of the largest and most advanced vehicle emissions testing and research facilities in the world. It will also be the largest ‘net-zero energy’ structure (producing as much energy as it uses) of its type in the nation.

“This striking design will make CARB’s new Southern California headquarters an immediately recognizable landmark,” said CARB Chair Mary D. Nichols. “It incorporates the highest standards of sustainability in the office and public spaces, and meets the exacting laboratory specifications we need to keep California at the forefront of our world-leading efforts to clean up our air and fight climate change.”

Have you tried driving down there?  I-5 is full of potholes and the large cities are literally shitholes. How about spending the money where it is actually needed (infrastructure) instead of on shiny new toys. Building cost is estimated at $368 Million and these projects always overrun.

So... Stressed... Out...

| No Comments

Interesting story at The Hill:

Therapy dogs slated to visit Capitol Hill today
Some cuddly canines are coming to the rescue of stressed-out Capitol Hill staffers.

Pet Partners, a therapy animal organization, and the Pet Industry Joint Advisory Council are bringing a batch of furry friends to the halls of Congress.

Therapy dogs will be ruff-ing it on Wednesday from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. in Room 902 of the Hart Senate Office Building and rooms 2043 and 2044 of the Rayburn House Office Building.

“Who better to bring comfort and relief to the hardworking folks on Capitol Hill than a furry group of loving, intuitive, and bipartisan Pet Partners therapy animals?” the groups asked in a news release touting the event.

Well... I guess that when you put all of your hopes for the 2020 election into one basket labeled "impeachment", things are going to get a bit stressed out. Good luck on that.

The impeachment is about covering up the massive corruption in the Obama presidency. From Twitchy:

Twitchy is a Twitter aggregator and Glen Beck went on a massive 40+ tweet outline of what happened over there in 2014 and it is damning for Obama:

Glen Beck:
There are two terms that kept popping up in our research of what was happening between the Left and Ukraine, and they’re used interchangeably. You see them in government documents, aid packages and even by activists rioting in the streets. They are: “Civil Society” and “Open Society”.  These two phrases are used by a global Shadow Government to mold the rest of the world into a Socialist theme park. And it’s all being done in YOUR NAME, but... WITHOUT your consent or vote.

Now, when we were first looking into Ukraine, we were primarily focusing on the timeline AFTER February 2014. We knew the coup had brought forward some new possibilities for the Obama Administration, and that was what we were primarily focused on.  So, how do they do it? By using "Civil & Open Society" groups to instigate violent regime change… oh I’m sorry. They don’t use the term regime change. Sounds too scary! They call it quote: “spontaneous, indigenous popular uprisings."  But still… something seemed incomplete. Why was George Soros funding an NGO in Ukraine ALONGSIDE the Obama Administration. According to TWO former Prosecutor General’s in Ukraine, that NGO - the Anti-Corruption Action Center - was being shielded by the U.S. Government.

I recently did an interview with a former Ukrainian official who was working inside the Prosecutor General’s office. He was actually there when this NGO was organizing street protests to get his boss fired. Watch:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R86awAp4uIw

It is worth remembering that the Ukraine also had a very deep state. The new administration was voted in to get rid of this corruption.

What I have quoted so far represents less than one quarter of what is at Twitchy - a long read but really exposes the corruption present in both countries and how both countries are now rooting it out - much to the dismay of the deep staters. President Obama and George Soros at the heart of it all.

Victor Davis Hanson on impeachment

One of America's greatest thinkers. Seriously. From the New York Post:

10 reasons why this impeachment ‘inquiry’ is really a coup
There are at least 10 reasons why the Dem impeachment “inquiry” is really a coup.

1) Impeachment 24/7: The “inquiry,” supposedly prompted by President Trump’s Ukrainian call, is only the most recent coup seeking to overturn the 2016 election.

Usually, the serial futile attempts — with the exception of the Mueller debacle — were characterized by about a month of media hysteria. We remember the voting-machines-fraud hoax, the Logan Act, the Emoluments Clause, the 25th Amendment, the McCabe-Rosenstein faux coup and various Michael Avenatti-Stormy Daniels-Michael Cohen psychodramas. Ukraine, then, isn’t unique, but simply another mini-coup.

2) False whistleblowers: The “whistleblower” is no whistleblower by any common definition of the noun. He has no incriminating documents, no information at all. He doesn’t even have firsthand evidence of wrongdoing.

Instead, the whistleblower relied on secondhand water-cooler gossip about a leaked presidential call. Even his mangled version of the call didn’t match that of official transcribers.

He wasn’t disinterested but had a long history of partisanship. He was a protégé of many of Trump’s most adamant opponents, including Susan Rice, John Brennan and Joe Biden. He did not follow protocol by going first to the inspector general but instead caucused with the staff of Rep. Adam Schiff’s impeachment inquiry. Neither the whistleblower nor his doppelganger, Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman, was bothered by the activities of the Bidens or by the Obama decision not to arm Ukraine. Their outrage, in other words, was not about Ukraine but over Trump.

3) First-term impeachment: The Clinton and Nixon inquiries were directed at second-term presidencies, when there were no more electoral remedies for alleged wrongdoing. By contrast, Trump is up for election in less than a year. Impeachment, then, seems a partisan exercise in either circumventing a referendum election or in damaging a president seeking re-election.

Seven more - compelling. This is a coup and not any real law enforcement action.

From Campus Reform:

Berkeley ‘instructor’: ‘Rural Americans’ are ‘bad people’

    • A graduate student at the University of California-Berkeley took to twitter on Wednesday to express his disdain for rural Americans and those who aren’t “pro-city.”
    • According to his resume, he has taught ten courses at the university over the past several years

A man who identifies himself as an instructor at the University of California-Berkeley publicly proclaimed Wednesday that Americans who live in rural areas are “bad people” who deserve “uncomfortable” lives. 

Jackson Kernion, who describes himself as a Graduate Student Instructor at Berkeley, having taught at least 11 philosophy courses at the university since 2013, took to Twitter Wednesday to explain the academic reasoning behind his distaste for people from rural America, calling those who live in rural areas “bad people who have made bad life decisions.”

Clueless wanker. Of course he teaches there, no legitimate University would have him. Before he hectors us about "bad life decisions", maybe he could tell us how well he is servicing his student debt obligations... Learn to code a**hole.

Great essay - rage

| No Comments

From the Z Man - a long read but very thoughtful:

It’s Personal
Something that has been noticeable for a long time now is that the Left is in a perpetual state of rage. The smallest things send them into spasms of anger. They hate Trump and they really hate his voters. They will go rummaging around in the social media history of people, looking for reasons to hate them. It’s not a general all-encompassing hate, like hating the fans of a rival sports team, but a very personal and cruel hate. They want the victim to suffer and they want to enjoy his suffering.

One reason for this, obviously, is that many people attracted to the Left are mentally unstable, so their politics are just a vehicle for their pathology. Many of the Antifa people, for example, have no coherent political thoughts. They just like being crazy on the streets and causing mayhem. This is the type of person who was attracted to the riots that used to follow the big economic summits. There was never any purpose to their rampages, other than the thrill of smashing things and causing mayhem.

Another more important reason for the rage is the nature of leftist politics in our post-national age. Being on the Left no longer means joining a group that has a tangible enemy, against whom the group throws themselves. The days of unionist, socialists and communists operating as collectives are gone. Even the post-modern movements like climate change and sexual politics is atomized. Much of it is backed by the sorts of people the Left used to oppose like rich people and business.

Climate activism:

This is not something anyone is trying to hide. This essay by one of the organizers of the climate activist group Extinction Rebellion explicitly makes this point. He’s not really concerned about the climate. He concedes that there is nothing to be done that is going to change what’s coming. The purpose of his activism is to normalize himself and his sense of self. It’s all about him forcing you to listen to his story and then accepting it and him as something other than strange.

Read the whole thing - explains a lot. Tip of the hat to Peter at Bayou Renaissance Man for the link.

Say goodbye to any semblance of democracy. From Legal Insurrection:

San Francisco: Socialist Son of Imprisoned Weather Underground Terrorists Who Was Raised By Bill Ayers and Worked for Hugo Chavez Elected D.A.
As we noted in 2018, leftist billionaire George Soros has been focusing his intricate web of foundations, super PACs, and assorted organizations on the nation’s District Attorney offices.

Across the country, Soros-affiliated groups have backed far-left radicals for the office and have seen some success.  One example is Larry Krasner in Philadelphia, and another, as of yesterday, is self-proclaimed socialist Chesa Boudin in San Francisco.

The San Francisco Chronicle reports:

Chesa Boudin won the race to become the city’s next district attorney Saturday on a campaign promising to confront mass incarceration and racial disparities in the criminal justice system, while vowing to hold police more accountable in cases of brutality.

A former deputy public defender, Boudin will now helm the office he previously went up against after winning by a razor-thin margin against Suzy Loftus, who had been appointed as interim district attorney by the mayor weeks before the election.

Boudin wound up with 85,950 votes and Loftus with 83,511 votes on Saturday afternoon, with only about 1,200 votes left to count.

Boudin ran on a platform of “decarceration” . . . except for ICE and police officers who are doing their jobs. Those he wants to pursue, prosecute, and imprison.

Boudin’s background is alarming. His parents are violent radicals who were still acting as if the sixties never ended when they were involved in the robbery of a Brinks armored car robbery in 1981. The crime included the murder of two police officers and a security guard, and Boudin’s father is still in prison for his horrific crimes.

Michelle Malkin reports:

The cornerstone of Boudin’s campaign is sabotaging immigration enforcement. He has called for prosecution and imprisonment of ICE and police officers for doing their jobs and vowed to create an “immigrant defense unit” within the DA’s office to “stand up to Trump on immigration.”

. . . . Boudin is the militant offspring of spoiled-rich radicals Kathy Boudin and David Gilbert, members of the violent Weather Underground terrorist group, which bombed government buildings and corporate headquarters, aided convicted felons in jailbreaks and participated in a 1981 Brink’s armored car holdup in Nyack, New York, with the Black Liberation Army. That crime took the lives of three innocent Americans — police officers Edward O’Grady and Waverly Brown and private security guard Peter Paige.

Kathy Boudin was an 11-year fugitive from justice after an accidental homemade bomb explosion at her New York City townhouse resulted in three other deaths. At the time of her arrest in Nyack, Boudin gave police one of many false identities she had used to evade the law. She was paroled in 2003 after convincing parole board members that she acted nobly out of “white guilt” to protest racism against blacks. (Reality check: Officer Waverly Brown was a black, working-class military veteran.) Gilbert remains in prison. Their story was glorified and romanticized by Robert Redford in the 2013 movie, “The Company You Keep.”

Following his parents’ incarceration, Boudin was raised by Weather Underground radicals Bill Ayers and Bernadine Dohrn.

Ayers and Dohrn were the people who found, groomed and launched Barack Obama's career. He decided to run for President while sitting in their living room.

Much more at the site.

From Nikki Haley - former Ambassador to the United Nations. From The Washington Post:

Nikki Haley claims top aides tried to recruit her to ‘save the country’ by undermining Trump
Two of President Trump’s senior advisers undermined and ignored him in what they claimed was an effort to “save the country,” former United Nations ambassador Nikki Haley claims in a new memoir.

Former secretary of state Rex Tillerson and former White House chief of staff John F. Kelly sought to recruit her to work around and subvert Trump, but she refused, Haley writes in a new book, “With All Due Respect,” which also describes Tillerson as “exhausting” and imperious and Kelly as suspicious of her access to Trump.

“Kelly and Tillerson confided in me that when they resisted the president, they weren’t being insubordinate, they were trying to save the country,” Haley wrote.

“It was their decisions, not the president’s, that were in the best interests of America, they said. The president didn’t know what he was doing,” Haley wrote of the views the two men held.

Haley is also the former South Carolina governor. She is widely viewed by Republicans as a top potential presidential candidate in 2024. I like her - she does not back down from anyone. A solid American.

Very interesting too - always thought that T. Rex's and Kelly's resignations were done under a cloud of sorts.
Now we know...

Got her book in the queue at the library - 14 requests ahead of me.

UPDATE BELOW

No common sense at all. From Zero Hedge:

California Approves $3.2 Billion Bond For High Speed Train To Nowhere
The high speed train is dead, long live the high speed train.

Less than a year after California Gov. Gavin Newsom brought California's dreams for a LA to San Fran bullet train crashing down, when he said in February that he is ending the state’s hugely expensive and hopelessly quixotic high-speed rail line fiasco (which would have been completed in 2033 at a staggering cost of $77 billion), California is about to unleash another high speed train project, and this one is even more idiotic.

The California Infrastructure and Economic Development Bank (IBank) has authorized a $3.2 billion tax-exempt, fixed-rate revenue bond issuance to help DesertXpress Enterprises, an affiliate of Virgin Trains USA, build a high-speed train from Victorville, California, to Las Vegas. The new XpressWest service, at speeds of up to 180 miles per hour, will take about 90 minutes one way. 

There is just one problem: Victorville, located in SoCal's high desert, is quite literally in the middle of nowhere.

I get that this is the first leg of the proposed Las Vegas - Los Angeles service but the two cities are only 270 miles apart - about a four hour drive. So you will park your car, get on the train, arrive at your destination (saving two hours) and then pay for Uber to get to where you want.

If it was me, I would choose to not have the baggage restriction, not have to pay to park my car, not have to pay for a taxi and have my own personal vehicle with me at all times - saving two hours in transit time does not provide enough benefit for me to forgo these perks.

Stupid idea at a time when the state is facing some profound financial problems.

UPDATE: Just for the hell of it, I looked up the California State Debt. It currently stands at $453 Billion dollars. This rail project represents 0.7% of the total California debt. This is not an insignifcant chunk of change for one project (and the cost overruns of course). They need to be reducing their debt, not switching to turbo mode.

President Trump attends a football game

Fun to see the numbers - from ESPN:

President Trump soaks in Deep South cheers at LSU-Alabama game
President Donald Trump knew where to go Saturday for home-field advantage, finding comfort in the Deep South with college football fans cheering two of the nation's top teams -- and him.

A bit more:

Trump, sitting one tier above the field, waved as fans turned around to look up at the president. He smiled, gave a thumbs-up a few times and threw a couple of fist bumps into the air as the Alabama fans waved red and white pompoms in response. First lady Melania Trump got an equally enthusiastic welcome.

But of course, there were some protestors outside the stadium - from Alabama.com:

‘I hate Trump more than Auburn’; UA students stage protest on campus ahead of president’s visit
University of Alabama students and members of the Student Civil Justice Coalition staged a sit-in on the steps of Gorgas Library Friday to protest the impending visit of President Donald Trump during Saturday’s football game between the Crimson Tide and LSU.

And they had a photo montage - here is a screen cap - all nine photos at the site:

I am counting all of about ten people. The hatred for the Orange Man is strong down there. Finally, the cute baby trump baloon got knifed and is unreparable - from Breitbart:

‘Baby Trump’ Balloon Slashed at Alabama Appearance
A towering Baby Trump protest balloon was knifed and deflated by someone unhappy with its appearance during President Donald Trump’s Saturday trip to Alabama, organizers said.

The incident occurred during Trump’s visit to watch the University of Alabama football game. The balloon, which is over 20 feet (6.1 meters) tall, was set up in a nearby park.

Jim Girvan, the organizer of a group that “adopts” out Baby Trump balloons for protests, said a man charged the balloon with a knife and cut an 8-foot-long (2.4-meter-long) gash in the back. Girvan said the unidentified man was arrested. Tuscaloosa police did not immediately respond to a request for more details.

Of course, there is a Go-Fund-Me fund for Hoyt's defense - their target was $6,000 and they have already raised $11,230. Go here: Restitutions for Baby Trump Stabber

The Deep State is non-partisan - from The Hill:

Trump encounters GOP resistance to investigating Hunter Biden
A push by President Trump and conservatives to dig into Hunter Biden’s work in Ukraine is running into stumbling blocks from an unusual corner: congressional Republicans.

Some Republicans believe Trump’s impeachment trial or a separate Senate committee inquiry could lay the groundwork for investigating former Vice President Joe Biden and his son, who have both emerged as a fixation for Trump and his top allies as they look for a foothold in the impeachment battle.

Trump escalated the effort on Thursday when he tweeted that the Bidens “must testify” — raising the specter that the president’s lawyers or GOP senators could try to drag them into the public impeachment trial.

The Deep State has grown too large (anything is too large). Time to dismantle it and salt the ground it was built on.

From John Solomon:

Testimony bombshell: Obama administration tried to partner with Hunter Biden’s Ukrainian gas firm but was blocked over corruption concerns
A State Department official who served in the U.S. embassy in Kiev told Congress that the Obama administration tried in 2016 to partner with the Ukrainian gas firm that employed Hunter Biden but the project was blocked over corruption concerns.

George Kent, the former charge d’affair at the Kiev embassy, said in testimony released Thursday that the State Department’s main foreign aid agency, known as USAID, planned to co-sponsor a clean energy project with Burisma Holdings, the Ukrainian gas firm that employed Hunter Biden as a board member.

At the time of the proposed project, Burisma was under investigation in Ukraine for alleged corruption. Those cases were settled in late 2016 and early 2017. Burisma contested allegations of corruption but paid a penalty for tax issues.

Kent testified he personally intervened in mid-2016 to stop USAID’s joint project with Burisma because American officials believed the corruption allegations against the gas firm raised concern.

“There apparently was an effort for Burisma to help cosponsor, I guess, a contest that USAID was sponsoring related to clean energy. And when I heard about it I asked USAID to stop that sponsorship,” Kent told lawmakers.

It is all unraveling before their eyes. Time to get more popcorn...

Swedish State Agency Uses Money of Dead Citizens to Fund Drag Shows
The Swedish Inheritance Fund, which manages the wealth of deceased Swedes with no heirs, will be using the money of dead Swedes to fund drag queen shows.

The state agency announced it would be giving 1,710,500 Swedish Krona (£138,656/$177,774) to the MUMS Cultural Association in Stockholm to “develop available normative creative fairy tales in the form of feature shows”, according to their website.

The shows in question will involve the group Among Dragons and Drag Queens, which will create “new fairy tales” to whichever group is being targetted at the time. The project will also involve “drag show workshops” in which participants will be able to perform their own drag shows with the project to be presented at local libraries.

And their target?

At the end of October, Among Dragons and Drag Queens even did a library drag storytime event for newly arrived migrant children. They said in a press release: “It was a little extra magical since most of the children could not speak Swedish. With the help of colours, glitter, costume transformations, and repetition of the words, all the children could follow the stories.”

Why do they always target little children - especially children from immigrants who do not understand the Swedish culture and who are trying to conform and fit in. Great way to get them indoctrinated. This is a moral sickness.

From Associated Press:

Ivanka Trump meets with female landowners on Morocco trip
Visiting Morocco for the first time, Ivanka Trump received a warm welcome Thursday from housewives, widows and other women who are benefiting from new laws that allow them to own land.

One woman expressed her gratitude by embracing President Donald Trump’s daughter and kissing her hands.

Ivanka Trump is a senior White House adviser who works on women’s issues and has sought through an initiative to encourage developing countries to help women build wealth and financial independence by owning land or other property.

Morocco is one such nation. Working in partnership with the Millennium Challenge Corp., a U.S. aid agency, Morocco has updated its land titling laws and earned the three-day visit from the U.S. president’s daughter.

And what has Chelsea Clinton done recently? I get it - Ivanka was born with a silver spoon in her mouth but she has worked hard and made something of herself. The idea that a muslim majority nation is allowing women to own land is amazing and yet, from the mainstream media?

Great history lesson from Chris Lynch at Large Regular:

Trump, the Democrats, Syria and Iran
Interesting article that claims that President Trump may have prevented a war with Iran by withdrawing our troops from Syria. This paragraph really got my attention (and my blood pressure up):

"People should remember that in the height of the Nixon Watergate Impeachment tumult during late 1973/early 1974 culminating in Nixon's resignation in August 1974, the North Vietnamese reneged on the Nixon Paris Peace Accords, and Saigon fell soon thereafter, in April 1975. G-d only knows what will happen because of Democrats' paralyzing of an American President while the world is in flames."

Now I hesitate to draw any comparisons between Trump and Nixon and I would also hesitate to use the description that "the world is in flames" but there's a special place in hell for those of either political party who claim to be acting on behalf of world peace or downtrodden folks in foreign lands when they are only acting in the interests of their own domestic political agenda. A special place in hell!

Do you remember the plight of the "boat people"?

Remember how eager the press was to hear from General Mattis prior to his recent book tour when they thought he was going to speak badly about President Trump? Remember how quickly they dropped any interest in him when they learned it was President Obama who was slammed in the new book?

Remember the 24/7 news cycle about how "Trump was abandoning the Kurds" and the predicted horrors that awaited those poor people? Can you remember any of those horrors coming to pass? And you know if they did come to pass it would have been an orgy of coverage. Instead we got fake news footage from a  Kentucky shooting range.

Remember how Libya is now a failed nation-state because of the actions of President Obama and his Secretary of State Hillary Clinton? Slavery is now an accepted practice in what used to be Libya! Talk about horrors (horrors you won't learn about on the MSM).

I remember! And I hope you do too! A SPECIAL PLACE IN HELL!

The Democrats are attempting to manipulate history to fit their narrative. Not a good way to go through life.
History always has the last laugh - if it does not outright repeat, it rhymes.

Heh - from FOX News:

'Putting ego and politics’ before ‘black bodies’: Chicago native blasts city leaders who snubbed Trump
Fox News political analyst Gianno Caldwell blasted the Democratic leadership of his native Chicago amid new reports that the city's' police superintendent is set to announce his retirement.

Last month, Chicago’s top cop, Eddie Johnson got into a highly publicized spat with President Trump after he refused to attend the president's speech at the International Association of Chiefs of Police conference hosted by the Windy City. On Wednesday, reports emerged that Johnson may step down amid an investigation into an incident in which officers found him allegedly asleep in his car at a stop sign.

And of course, the usual suspects rallied to Johnson's defense:

Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot came to Johnson's defense and dinged the president by tweeting, "It’s no surprise that @realDonaldTrump brought his insulting, ignorant buffoonery to Chicago. Luckily, in this city, we know the truth and we will not let anyone — no matter how high the office — denigrate who we are as a people or our status as a welcoming city."

The black Democrats refuse to work with the man who is trying his best to help them. Obama didn't help them, President Obama created the racial divides so he could Balkanize the population. President Trump is really trying to elevate the black population out of poverty but some of them - the ones suffering from Trump Derangement Syndrome and who are living on the Democrat Plantation are in serious denial.

Whistleblower - pedophile?

| No Comments

What is it with prominent Democrats and sexual abuse - from NOQ Report:

Whistleblower’s lawyer Mark Zaid’s YouTube channel liked young Disney girl videos
The Internet has a long memory. In fact, it’s eight years too long for the Ukraine whistleblower’s lawyer Mark Zaid. That was the last time he had activity on his YouTube page, and the three videos he liked at the time are pretty creepy. It seems the lawyer really enjoyed watching videos about the “prettiest” Disney Channel stars, including a video that tracks Selena Gomez from childhood.

Long memory? Hell - the Internet is forever. Do not ever forget that.

His channel, called MarkSZaidEsq (archive link in case he deletes it or unlikes the perverted young girl videos) was linked to (archive link) from his primary website and as of the writing of this article, is still linked to from his other website (archive link).  The link from the primary website was scrubbed after Washington Times journalist Douglas Ernst asked him about it earlier today. Ernst originally asked Zaid in April about the channel but his question was ignored. Between his primary website getting scrubbed and the link to the YouTube channel still being live from his profile page on a different website, it seems to clearly indicate the channel is, indeed, his.

Much more at the site - maybe not out-and-out sexual abuse but still, an unhealthy interest. The website has screen captures and copies of the posts - pretty graphic.

Again, can anyone point me to a prominent Republican with kid-pro-quo deviancy issues? Did not think so.

The silent coup

| No Comments

Looks like someone should have been a bit more circumspect on their twitter account. From The Daily Wire:

Whistleblower Lawyer In January 2017: ‘Coup Has Started,’ ‘Impeachment Will Follow’
Mark Zaid, the attorney for the Ukrainian whistleblower, stated just days after President Donald Trump was inaugurated in January 2017 that the “coup has started” and that “impeachment will follow.”

“The posts, which came shortly after President Trump fired then-acting Attorney General Sally Yates for failing to defend federal laws in court, are likely to fuel Republican concerns that the whistleblower’s complaint is tainted with partisanship,” Fox News’ Gregg Re reported. “Trump has repeatedly accused Democrats and partisans in the intelligence community of effectively plotting a coup against him, through selective leaks and lengthy investigations.”

Screen caps of the tweets at the site.

Seriously WTF Austin, TX

| No Comments

Austin Texas is a liberal holdout in a deep red Texas. Here is one example. From Texas station KXAN

Austin ISD approves new sex ed curriculum
Early Tuesday morning, Austin Independent School District’s board unanimously approved a controversial new sex-education curriculum.

The curriculum spans grades three through eight. Under the new curriculum, for the first time, the district will teach students about gender identity and sexual orientation. The lessons will also help kids identify an adult they can trust; plus talk to them about options if they get pregnant, and seventh graders would learn how to use a condom.

Needless to say, the usual suspects are deeply embedded:

Those supporters include Informed Parents of Austin, a group of AISD parents advocating for “policies in the Austin Independent School District that pertain to the LGBTQ community.” The group’s mission also includes working to “counter the efforts of any group which has a mission of removing anti-bullying and equality policies from AISD.”

So that group is just a front for gay activists - that vanishingly small percentage of people who insist that we change our society to accommodate their fetishes. No thought given to the lives of the poor children exposed to this crap.

Rethinking sanctuary counties

| No Comments

Good to see reality trump narrative - from Daily Caller:

Sanctuary County Rolls Back Its Anti-ICE Policy Following String Of Illegal Aliens Charged With Rape
Following months of national media coverage over the handling of illegal aliens in his custody, Montgomery County, Maryland, Executive Marc Elrich has somewhat reversed a sanctuary policy he signed into law.

Elrich will allow Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents the ability to access certain areas of the Montgomery County jail in order to apprehend illegal aliens, according to ABC7 News. A county spokesman confirmed to the local news outlet on Nov. 1 that correctional officers have been ordered to give ICE agents clearance to “identified areas” of the jail to “ensure that transfers are conducted in a safe environment.”

A bit more:

Elrich signed the “The Promoting Community Trust Executive Order” in July, which barred county police from asking an individual about their immigration status and largely prohibited them from cooperating with ICE agents. Montgomery County had already refused to honor ICE detainer requests, and the new order was the latest sanctuary measure enacted by a deep-blue locality revolting against the Trump administration’s crackdown on illegal immigration.

The 'ole double whammy - Orange Man Bad and preserving the progressive narrative. Of course:

However, Elrich’s order soon proved controversial. Authorities arrested numerous illegal aliens in Montgomery County — all of the arrests taking place just weeks after the order was signed — and charged them with rape or other sexual abuse crimes. The string of rape charges shined a national spotlight on the county’s policy toward criminal illegal aliens and its fraught relationship with the agency tasked with removing them.

Wake up and smell the cappuccino. The people coming across the border are not the best and brightest. DUH! Glad that they woke up before someone was murdered. The county council still needs to get their collective heads screwed on straight:

In a scathing response to national criticism, the Montgomery County Council in early September accused the Trump administration, conservative media, “Neo-Nazi sympathizers” and others of spreading “a lot of inaccurate information” about the county’s criminal justice process.

Bunch of self-centered morons. Elections have consequences.

  • Democrat
  • Sexual Predation on a minor
  • Portland, OR

Sounds like it was a great party - NOT. From Portland station KOIN:

Sodomy, bribery: The case against Terry Bean
Terry Bean, the high-profile Democratic donor and activist, bailed out of jail the same day he was arrested Wednesday afternoon by Portland police. His lawyer, Derek Ashton – who was arrested hours earlier – also posted bail and was released from jail.​

Court documents say the men arranged a $200,000 payment to a 15-year-old boy to make sex abuse charges against Bean go away. ​

Bean was arrested on a warrant accusing him of 2 counts of 3rd-degree sodomy — both felonies — and a misdemeanor sexual abuse charge on a case that was first filed in 2015.

And of course, the major charges are quietly going away. Douchebaggery like this makes me sick. Could someone please point me to a Conservative American with similar charges? Anyone?

Heh - not just the White House - UPDATE

| 1 Comment

UPDATE - a reader commented with what actually happened. More complex than the Reuters report.

Two weeks ago, President Trump asked Federal Agencies to drop their New York Times subscriptions (and The Washington Post). Now a library in Florida is doing the same - from Reuters:

Florida county to revisit rejection of digital New York Times for libraries
Responding to a public furor, a Florida county board on Tuesday said it would revisit its decision to reject its library system’s request for a digital subscription to the New York Times, whose reporting one member had called “fake news.”

The Oct. 24 decision by the Citrus County commissioners drew sharp opposition as well as national attention when it came to light in a local report late last week.

“One of the most, if not the most, disappointing aspects of all of this has been the vitriol that has come about so quickly,” said Jeff Kinnar, chairman of the Board of County Commissioners. “I have gotten more foul language in my emails in the last 48 hours than I have gotten in the past three years.”

Of course the deep state apparatchiks respond with venom when the sacred narrative is being questioned.

The New York Times

| No Comments

It used to be America's Newspaper of Record until their liberal bias became a major problem.
From The Washington Free Beacon:

Republicans Lie, Democrats Misstate: A New York Times Style Guide
Politicians tend to make stuff up. When that happens, the media coverage tends to differ depending on the letter next to the offending politician's name.

The New York Times, for example, took a markedly different tone in covering Hillary Clinton's bogus 2008 claim about landing under sniper fire in Bosnia than it did with President Donald Trump's dubious statement that the late ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi went down "whimpering" during a U.S. raid last month.

In 2008, after the Washington Post published a Four-Pinocchio "fact check" of Clinton's oft-told Bosnia story from 1996, the Times reported Clinton's "admission that she had misspoken." A story the following day discussed her attempts to put "a softening spin on her misstatement."

By contrast, the Times has devoted three news reports to fact-checking Trump's statement that al-Baghdadi died "crying and whimpering and screaming," including a front-page story on Saturday headlined, "The ‘Whimpering’ Terrorist Only Trump Seems to Have Heard." Multiple defense officials said Trump's story was likely a fabrication, and no evidence has emerged to confirm his account describing a humiliating end for the world's most-wanted terrorist.

This bias is so pervasive that we have become inured to it. They are Gaslighting us and most people do not recognize it for what it is.

Learning their history - socialism

| No Comments

From America's Newspaper of Record - the Babylon Bee:

Millennial Wishes There Were Some Historical Examples Of Socialism We Could Study To Have Some Idea How It Might Turn Out
Local socialist millennial man Matthew Hatter lamented Monday that there are no concrete examples of socialism he can point to in order to have some kind of idea how it would turn out.

"If only there were other countries that have tried socialism before," Hatter said to a friend at an ethical coffee shop, Commiebrews, Monday afternoon, after he finished his paper route. "Then, we could see if there are any pitfalls."

Hatter said it'd be nice if there were books that covered things like world history and economics that we could read. If that were the case, Hatter said, we could abandon socialism if it looked dangerous or proceed with socialism if every country that implemented it were incredibly successful.

"Like, say some countries in South America tried socialism before and everybody starved to death," he said. "Or if there were major superpowers who implemented socialism and then, like, 100 million people died---that would be really bad. We could look to these 'books of history' and decide that wouldn't be the route for us."

"Alas, sadly, this isn't the case, so the country will just have to be pioneers and try socialism to see what it's like."

I rest my case...

A great observation from Freedom Works:

The Framers of the Constitution Warned Against a Partisan Impeachment Process
Alan Dershowitz of Harvard Law School, writes in The Hill, “A partisan impeachment vote is exactly what the Framers feared.” Dershowitz emphasizes the exceptional and unique power of impeachment. “Impeachment is an extraordinary tool to be used only when the constitutional criteria are met. These criteria are limited and include only ‘treason, bribery, or other high crimes and misdemeanors.’”

Knowing the intent of the Framers of the Constitution, Dershowitz paraphrases a major concern of Alexander Hamilton that partisan politics will be used to remove an elected president. “Hamilton warned of the ‘greatest danger’ that the decision to move forward with impeachment will ‘be regulated more by the comparative strength of parties than the real demonstrations of innocence or guilt.’ He worried that the tools of impeachment would be wielded by the ‘most cunning or most numerous factions’ and lack the ‘requisite neutrality toward those whose conduct would be the subject of scrutiny.’”

“[M]ost cunning” has been House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence Chairman Adam Schiff (D-Calif.), who has conducted a secret investigation and appears to have selectively leaked damaging reports of allegations of misconduct by President Trump. For sure, the most numerous factions are the House Democrats that have finally voted for the ground rules on an impeachment inquiry – with every Democrat but two voting to continue. Dangerously, Schiff, Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), and the Democrats have and are intentionally creating a constitutional crisis, foreseen by the brilliant Alexander Hamilton.

Much more at the site - an excellent analysis. This impeachment needs to be put down now before they get any other ideas. President Trump won the election fair and square - the Democrats should be doing their jobs and representing their constituents instead of wasting millions of taxpayer dollars on this soft coup.

Epstein. From their website: Project Veritas:

[VIDEO] Leaked Insider Recording From ABC News Reveals Network Executives Killed Bombshell Story Implicating Jeffrey Epstein

    • “I’ve Had This Story for Three Years… (ABC) Would Not Put It on The Air” says Good Morning America Breaking News Anchor, and 20/20 Co-Anchor Amy Robach. “It Was Unbelievable… We Had – Clinton, We Had Everything…”
    • Robach: “We Had Her Whole Allegations About Prince Andrew…I Got a Little Concerned About Why I Couldn’t Get On.”
    • Amy Robach Describes How She Interviewed a Woman Who Had the Courage to Come Forward “Years” Ago About Epstein: “She Had Pictures, She Had Everything. She Was in Hiding for Twelve Years. We Convinced Her to Come Out. We Convinced Her to Talk to Us.”
    • Robach Details ABC’s Initial Response to Her: “Who’s Jeffrey Epstein? No One Knows Who That is. This is a Stupid Story”
    • Robach: “Now it’s All Coming Out … I Freaking Had All Of It…”

Newly revealed footage leaked by an ABC insider has exposed how network executives rejected allegations against Jeffrey Epstein years ago, even though there was content regarding the merit of those claims in-hand.

Amy Robach, ‘Good Morning America’ Co-Host and Breaking News Anchor at ABC, explains how a witness came forward years ago with information pertaining to Epstein, but Disney-owned ABC News refused to air the material for years. Robach vents her anger in a “hot mic” moment with an off-camera producer, explaining that ABC quashed the story in it’s early stages. “I’ve had this interview with Virginia Roberts (Now Virginia Guiffre) [alleged Epstein victim]. We would not put it on the air. Um, first of all, I was told “Who’s Jeffrey Epstein. No one knows who that is. This is a stupid story.”

She continues, “The Palace found out that we had her whole allegations about Prince Andrew and threatened us a million different ways.”

Robach goes on to express she believes that Epstein was killed in prison saying, “So do I think he was killed? 100% Yes, I do…He made his whole living blackmailing people… Yup, there were a lot of men in those planes. A lot of men who visited that Island, a lot of powerful men who came into that apartment.”

Robach repeats a prophetic statement purportedly made by Attorney Brad Edwards “…[T]here will come a day when we will realize Jeffrey Epstein was the most prolific pedophile this country has ever known,” and Disgustedly Robach states “I had it all three years ago.”

The Epstein files are out there somewhere. Things are getting interesting. This time of American history will be studied by future generations. How we almost lost our Republic.

Water in Canada

| No Comments

Just the tip of a public-health iceberg - this could be major. From The Beeb:

Lead levels in Canadian water 'exceed safe limit' in a third of cases
The amount of lead in the water supply of major Canadian cities exceeded safe levels in hundreds of thousands of homes, a major investigation has found.

Some areas showed lead levels "similar" to those in the US city of Flint, Michigan, during its 2015 water crisis.

Out of 12,000 samples taken from 2014 to 2018, one third exceeded the national safety guideline of 5 parts per billion (ppb).

The US limit is 15 ppb so 5 ppb is not earth shattering - BUT - 

While a third exceeded the safe limit of 5ppb, 18% were over the US limit of 15ppb.

Now this is bad. The cities in question?

Among the areas studied were Montreal, the second-largest city in Canada (population 1.75m), and Oakville, an affluent part of the Greater Toronto Area (GTA). Regina, the capital of the prairie province of Saskatchewan, and the city of Prince Rupert, in northern British Columbia, were also included.

A bit more:

The biggest source of lead in Canada's drinking water is antiquated pipes and public service lines that connect people's homes to the main water supply. A government report from 2017 estimated that about 500,000 homes across the country were affected.

Tests are done differently across the country, and sometimes are not done at all, the journalistic investigation revealed.

And it is not just large urban areas:

The exception would be on indigenous reserves under the control of the federal government. There are currently 57 long-term drinking water advisories affecting indigenous communities across the country, according to Indigenous Services Canada.

Screw over the Indians - both Canada and the USA have a long history of that. This is also a perfect example of not maintaining the infrastructure. It is so easy to budget money for shiny new things - universal health care for example,  alternative energy for another, then to use it to dig up and replace old pipes. That is just a boring hole in the ground.

Doing your job

And getting fired as a result. Bet there is a nice lawsuit here - from Nashville, TN station WSMV:

Nashville probation director terminated
News4 Investigates has confirmed Bob Green, the former director of the Nashville Probation department, has been terminated.

The action comes after News4 Investigates first uncovered emails showing collaboration between the department and the U.S. Immigrations and Customs Enforcement in which probation officers were providing information to help track down undocumented immigrants.

Getting fired for sollowing the published law of the land? And this:

Hollin said Green intends to fight for his job and has already filed a litigation hold that would require the courts to preserve all emails and texts in storage in anticipation of a lawsuit.

“No one is above the law. It is abundantly clear that Mr. Green followed the law, and what he did was approved by the Metro Department of Law. Any suggestion that he’s been insubordinate is false,” Hollin said.

Good that he saved all his emails. The discovery process can be a bitch - hope he gets a nice settlement for his efforts.

Some common sense in Austin Texas

Great news - cleaning up the homeless population. From FOX News:

As homeless camps continue to spring up in Austin, Gov. Abbott orders cleanup effort
State agencies are moving in to clean up Austin, Texas after the capital city became a magnet for homeless vagrants, due to laws allowing people to camp out on the streets.

The project started on Monday morning as cleaning crews used leaf blowers and street sweepers to clear debris while they were guarded by state police.

Fox News sent a camera crew and reporter Aishah Hasine into Austin to investigate and ask questions to people on the ground.

"We saw... crews out and about escorted by state police cleaning up the trash out here, using leaf blowers and a street sweeper," Hasine told the hosts of "Fox & Friends." "The second part we believe will be to pack up the folks living here as the state steps in and frustration mounts, over how the city is handling this crisis."

It's a classical Pidgeon Problem - these people may be homeless but they are well connected and if some city is willing to give them free shit and a place to camp, they will flock. Kudo's to Governor Abbott for recognising this and starting the cleaning process before the population is entrenched. This could have been done in Seattle and now Seattle is a big mess. I hate to think of what Portland is like - have not been there for several years and not planning to depsite Powell's Books and the Tektronics surplus store.

Talk about stupid - Joy Behar

Really? I mean really? If the call went out to hire 10,000 people, it would be all over all media. From Newsbusters:

Joy Behar: Trump Thinks His Voters Are Stupid; Rallies Are Fake, Full of Paid Actors
Just when you think things can’t get any more ridiculous on The View, the hosts spend time whining the President’s son’s Halloween costume is insensitive to animals. On Friday’s show, they also complained about a 2020 Trump campaign ad, which Joy Behar declared was full of paid actors “just like the ones who go to his rallies.”

She is not an American. She is just a stupid big-city elite whiner who does not see the beauty in this world. I pity her.
