UPDATE below.

Not known for her accuracy. On Friday, March 20th, she said this on the air:

That was ten days ago - this morning?

UPDATE: Just checked and Comfort's sister ship (Mercy) arrived at Port of Los Angeles on Friday the 27th - exactly one week after Ms. Maddow's proclimation.

From Don Surber:

Biden versus the virus
Glenn K. Beaton asked the question, "What if Obama were president now?"

His was a good, well-researched column that makes the point that President Donald John Trump is doing a better job than Obama would have.

But Obama cannot be president. He had two terms and did all the damage he can do. He left with $150 million in bribes laundered through a book deal and a gig at Netflix, all perfectly legal and evil.

The question is how different would Biden handle things.

First, he would not have restricted travel with Red China on January 31. We know this because Biden protested that President Trump's restrictions were xenophobic.

We also know that Biden was in Red China's pocket because Red China invested $1.5 billion in Hunter Biden's investment scam.

President Trump is not for sale.

Specifics at the site - a Biden presidency would be a disaster even if the Chinese Flu was not happening. Well thought out - we are dodging a bullet here.

If this bitch gets re-elected, I have serious doubts about the legality of the California election process. From The Gateway Pundit:

“I Don’t Care! I Don’t Care! I Don’t Care!” Pelosi Snaps at CNN’s Dana Bash For Asking About Trump’s Plans to Put America Back to Work (VIDEO)

She is well past her sell-by date. The video is nothing surprising - hope it gets wide press.

From his Twitter account:

Antoine Tucker is an ex-gangster and is currently running for Congress - AOCs district.

His platform looks really well thought out. I wish him well - he is up against the Democratic machine but he is on-point with an excellent message. If the people of NYC re-elect AOC, something is seriously wrong.

From his twitter account - he excoriates Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer:

I was thinking that Governor of New York State Andrew Cuomo is being portrayed very favorably in the news recently with his leadership during the Chinese Virus epidemic. The contrast between him and NY City Mayor DeBlasio is palpable. There seem to be forces at work here and sundance at The Last Refuge sees the same things:

The Chosen One Rises…
The ‘good cop bad cop’ routine with deBlasio just seemed a little too scripted… Then the framework of a usefully constructed contrast narrative started to become clear… Then, as if on cue, all national broadcasts started being interrupted for maximum exposure; again a little odd.

A deep, very deep, connection to Bloomberg reappeared as a little flashing light in the corner of the picture… Then the Murdoch’s started to shape the landscape; curiosity piqued… Followed by positioning that seems a little too centrally located in the political sphere.. Then Hannity and Bannon started singing his praises.  Well, Bannon doesn’t exactly have a good track record of judgement… I digress.  But it really wasn’t until the CIA started publishing their endorsement that things possibly started making sense. WATCH:

Are they positioning NY Governor Andrew Cuomo to exit the DNC convention as the consensus nominee; the chosen one? It would take the construct, at least the optics of, a reluctantly drafted candidate to pull it off. Then again, what is all this – if not that.

Think that’s crazy?…. Let’s keep watching.

More at the site. The 360+ comments are well worth reading too. sundance is on to something. Cuomo's speech in that video was very carefully scripted. He would actually make an OK President. As much as I want to see Trump continue for another term, I would not be as heartbroken as I was when President Obama was elected.

I am also incredibly glad to see someone with real political power coming in to fill the gap so Hillary doesn't think that she can try again - it is her turn after all...

From United Press International:

Trump changes in-person G7 meeting at Camp David to a teleconference
President Donald Trump on Thursday canceled an in-person meeting of the leaders of the Group of Seven nations at Camp David and will instead hold a video teleconference.

Trump's top economic advisor Larry Kudlow informed the other members of the G7 nations, which include Canada, Japan, Britain, France, Italy and Germany, of the change of plans for the June meeting on Thursday, White House spokesman Judd Deere said.

Great call - every one of these leaders has pressing issues at home. Makes sense to use the appropriate technology. Saves their taxpayers some money too - no fancy junkets for you.

Quote of the year

Politicians would do well to remember these words:

I favor the policy of economy, not because I wish to save money, but because I wish to save people. The men and women of this country who toil are the ones who bear the cost of the Government. Every dollar that we carelessly waste means that their life will be so much the more meager. Every dollar that we prudently save means that their life will be so much the more abundant. Economy is idealism in its most practical form.
— Calvin Coolidge
Inaugural Address, March 4, 1925

From Washington Examiner:

Hillary Clinton asks appeals court to overturn order for deposition about email server and Benghazi
Hillary Clinton asked an appeals court on Friday to overturn a judge's order for her to appear for a sworn deposition about her use of a private email server and the 2012 Benghazi terrorist attack.

The case stems from a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit brought by the conservative watchdog Judicial Watch against the former secretary of state. Earlier this month, U.S. District Court Judge Royce Lamberth ruled, “The Court agrees with Judicial Watch — it is time to hear directly from Secretary Clinton.” The judicial opinion also ordered former Clinton chief of staff Cheryl Mills to be deposed.

Clinton's legal team responded with an 83-page petition for a writ of mandamus filed with the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit, calling the district ruling outrageous and asking the appeals court to order the lower court to correct the ruling.

The legal team for Clinton said reversing the order “is warranted because Judicial Watch’s impending depositions of Secretary Clinton and Ms. Mills are inappropriate, unnecessary, and a clear abuse of discretion.”

Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton said, “This desperate act is yet another attempt by the Clinton machine to delay truth and accountability for her email conduct and how it impacted the people’s ‘right to know’ under FOIA.”

I really hope that Judicial Watch prevails - they do excellent work. Hillary needs to be held accountable for her incompetence and her corruption.

Peter Wehner? He writes (at least he used to) for Atlantic Magazine. Do not know if he is still there after this morning's howler of an article - from Don Surber:

The corona virus panic is over

20200313-atlantic.jpg

This morning, The Atlantic declared, "The Trump Presidency Is Over." Never Trumper Peter Wehner wrote, "Donald Trump is shrinking before our eyes.

"The corona virus is quite likely to be the Trump presidency’s inflection point, when everything changed, when the bluster and ignorance and shallowness of America’s 45th president became undeniable, an empirical reality, as indisputable as the laws of science or a mathematical equation.

"It has taken a good deal longer than it should have, but Americans have now seen the con man behind the curtain. The president, enraged for having been unmasked, will become more desperate, more embittered, more unhinged. He knows nothing will be the same. His administration may stagger on, but it will be only a hollow shell. The Trump presidency is over."

5 hours later, the only thing dead was the premise of the article.

President Donald John Trump this afternoon took ownership of corona virus at a press conference. In so doing, he restored America's faith in itself and its ability to conquer an illness.

Much more at the site. President Trump took ownership. This is something that Democrats have not seen before so they are unfamiliar with the process. They should try it sometime - it works.

Available now online from FOX News. The first 20 minutes are dead air so here is the link to the start at YouTube

Great, to the point and lots of information. I like that he had all the leaders from the various health industries and large retailers there to point out what they are doing. Working together for a common cause - this only makes us stronger.

First death in the USA and now, first diagnosis in Congress. From Politico:

Staffer in Sen. Maria Cantwell’s D.C. office tests positive for coronavirus
A staff member in Sen. Maria Cantwell's Washington D.C. office has been diagnosed with coronavirus — the first known confirmed case of coronavirus on Capitol Hill.

Cantwell will close her offices in D.C and Seattle and her staff will work remotely. The Washington State Democrat is asking that additional staffers who came in contact with the individual be tested.

Shutting down Congress would not be a bad thing at all for several reasons...

Senate Panel Plans To Issue First Subpoena In Burisma-Biden Probe
Sen. Ron Johnson, the chairman of the Senate Homeland Security Committee, is preparing to issue the panel’s first subpoena as part of an investigation into Burisma Holdings, the Ukrainian energy company linked to Hunter Biden, he said in a letter on Sunday.

The next eight months are going to be a lot of fun. I can only imagine the list of actions queued up for between now and then.

From President Trump's Election Campaign:

20200226-nyt-suit.jpg

Jury Trial demanded so that means the Discovery Process and that will be a bitch for the New York Times. Full disclosure of what they knew and when they knew it is not in their interest - does not fit the narrative.

Full complaint can be found here: NYT Complaint

President Trump is sitting on a huge pile of things like this and will be metering them out over the next nine months until the election - this is going to be a very fun time...

Do not hold your breath - from Megan Fox at PJ Media:

Trump Inspires Former Prisoners: 'You Are Made by God for a Great and Noble Purpose'
President Trump spoke at an unusual graduation ceremony on Thursday and inspired the class of graduates, all former prisoners. HOPE for Prisoners assists formerly incarcerated people with reentry into society by providing long-term support and services. Founder Jon Ponder experienced significant challenges on his release from prison and noted the lack of resources for others in his situation. He started HOPE for Prisoners to help others.

Trump has often expressed his support for criminal justice reform, signing into law several acts that reduced sentencing, shortened jail terms, and stopped the chaining of women in prison as they give birth. His appearance at the HOPE for Prisoners graduation affirms his commitment to second chances and investing in people who have been incarcerated as worthwhile members of our community.

Sometimes people are just in bad situations or they make stupid mistakes. They pay the penalty and turn their lives around. Glad to see that our President is recognizing this and supporting the ones who take this path.

A very uplifting message about our President so of course, the mainstream media is ignoring it. Doesn't fit the narrative.

President Trump and first lady Melania visited the Taj Mahal Monday, hours after the U.S. leader gave a rousing speech to more than 110,000 at a cricket stadium in Ahmedabad, India.

One of our best allies in the world and soon to have the largest middle-class population in the world. Capitalism is lifting them out of grinding poverty - not a large government.

The difference between the two parties. I got my Primary Ballot in the mail - here is a photo (minus the personal bits):

20200222-primary.jpgI know that some of the names on the left are no longer in the running but still...

The left column screams confusion, unfocused thinking and zero message. The right column speaks Job Well Done.
The left has no coherence. They do not speak to us Normals. They pander. They lie. They are only interested in increasing their power in the deep state while failing to realize that the deep state is going away. I almost pity the Democrat representatives in the House - they are going to get trounced this year.
Almost pity them...

From FOX News:

Republican revenge: Record GOP field forms, on 2020 mission to take down ‘socialists’
A record number of candidates have filed to run for office in the House and Senate, breaking last cycle’s history-making numbers from the same point in time. But unlike the 2018 midterms when the surge was driven by Democrats, the congressional boom this time is on the Republican side, according to the latest federal candidate and financial activity report obtained exclusively by Fox News.

In 2019 alone, 781 Republicans filed federal paperwork to run for the House, the most ever recorded in an odd year at the Federal Election Commission. That’s up from 593 GOP candidates in 2017, when Democrats had an astounding 937 candidates at the same point.

Republican candidates across the country interviewed by Fox News said they feel momentum is on their side this time. Energized by President Trump and his impeachment acquittal, congressional hopefuls are making the case that Trump needs a fighter like them in the House or else the country will succumb to “socialist” Democratic plans.

That would be a wonderful comeuppance for the Dems. Look - we tried it your way for four years. Time to get back to work. Move over and let the adults do their jobs now.

President Trump's son has some actual numbers to counter the Democrats protesting that President Trump is seriously abusing his pardon power - from his twitter account:

Kind of hard to argue with those numbers isn't it...

Excerpted from a post on a different topic from Don Surber:

The 3-year obsession with removing President Donald John Trump from office consumed and defeated Democrats. They should have worked with him. Obama should have been man enough to admit defeat, and given him a peaceful transition of power. This would have allowed the party to heal itself and prepare properly for 2020.

Instead, they resisted. All this did was get them all worked up and show how incompetent they are. They should have accepted defeat after the Mueller report, but no, they continued to try to bring down this president, which resulted in an impotent impeachment that wound up knocking out their best chance for winning in 2020, Joe Biden.

They could have come from behind with a strong candidate, with a strong message and with a four year track record of work in Congress but no - they squandered it all with their Trump Derangement Syndrome and proved that they need to sit at the kid's table for four more years.

Don's original post is good too - go and read: Impeachment was good for the USA

Why did people vote for President Trump

| No Comments

An excellent essay at American Thinker:

The Epic Donald
We voting Americans need to sort out our thinking and do so before next fall. I am so tired of hearing reasonable, intelligent people express anti-Trump attitudes based on truly flimsy grounds. A relative said to me that she’d never vote for Trump because “he’s an a**hole.” I have had other people voice similar concerns in more genteel terms -– they don’t like his tweeting, his braggadocio, his unpredictability. Okay, okay. At first, I didn’t either.

Now, it’s true that Trump can be a jerk. But so was Julius Caesar. So was Winston Churchill. So was George Patton. For that matter, so was King David, who was appointed by God to be king of Israel, and who was that country’s best king despite his dalliance with Bathsheba and his setting up her husband for certain death on the battlefield. David’s multiple wives and their offspring caused much upheaval in the country, but David, whom history still regards as a great king, brought peace and prosperity to his country throughout most of his lengthy reign.

Perhaps it would clarify things if we were to define our terms and priorities. Is greatness usually measured by hairstyle? By smooth talk? By delicate sensibilities? What are the attributes of a truly great man? What does tradition tell us?

I’m an English teacher, so I think in literary terms. Let’s look to the “epic hero” to find a standard for the epitome of human greatness. It seems to me that a person who would willingly take on the leadership of the greatest, wealthiest nation on earth would qualify as either a madman or a hero. Agreed? Reach back to your college lit class –- what are the official attributes of an epic hero?

    1. An epic hero has to be involved in a battle of epic proportions and he has to be winning that battle.
    2. An epic hero has to be strong physically and mentally.
    3. He has to be wise, fearless, and tenacious.
    4. He needs to be kind to women, children, and the poor.
    5. He has to be of the aristocracy –- the butler never rises to the rank of epic hero.
    6. He has to be selfless, risking his life for others.
    7. An epic hero is honest, saying directly what is on his mind.

Is that such a different list from what any country would want for a president?

The author then goes through each point (with specific examples) and concludes with the following:

I know -- Trump is odd. I have no idea why his skin is that color. His Elvis hair is a total wonder, though I have to admit I’m growing fond of it. His speech cadences are noticeably non-Ivy-League. He repeats himself. He says, “I can tell you that much,” much too often. He tweets -- aggressively. But nowhere in literature is the hero expected to be cocktail-party sophisticated. Nowhere does it say he can’t be eccentric. After all, most truly great people are.

Nails it. Yes, he is not your usual politician - groomed and cossetted. We do not want one of those now - they have failed us and we need a breath of fresh air. President Trump is that breath of fresh air.

From Twitchy:

‘At least I’m not a communist’: James Carville has some colorful thoughts on Bernie Sanders calling him ‘a political hack’
Last week, James Carville went off on Democrats for their misplaced priorities and on the media for their sneering elitism. That did not absolve Carville of some of the more terrible things he himself has said ($100 bill through a trailer park, anyone?), but it was nonetheless refreshing to see a Dem strategist call out crappy Democratic strategy.

Well, apparently Carville was just getting started. Vanity Fair contributor Peter Hamby spoke recently with Carville on the phone, and Carville had some choice words about current Democratic presidential frontrunner Bernie Sanders:

When you lose the true kingmakers like Carville (Clinton, William Jefferson), you have lost the party.

I would love to see him be the Democrat candidate. Not that he would be able to win but just to see him have to debate President Trump. One on one. Live. No do-overs. No scripts.

Sometimes these things happen - a stopped clock is right twice/day. From FOX News:

California bill would ban stays at Trump hotels for state employees
State lawmakers in California are considering a bill that would prohibit state agencies from spending taxpayer money at any of the hotels owned by President Trump or his family.

The proposal, which was introduced by Democratic state Assemblyman Evan Low, would bar employees of any state agency from spending money at a Trump hotel while traveling for work.

“Public officials, at any level, should not profit off the constituents that they were elected to serve and represent,” Low said in a statement. “No branch of government is above the Constitution, and this legislation will ensure that California taxpayers are not further exploited by Donald Trump’s violations of the emoluments clause.”

First of all, it has been found that President Trump did not violate the emoluments clause which states that an elected official can not profit by use of their office. Something Hillary and the Biden and Kerry families need to be brought to task for. Trump is doing this entirely on his own dime. He is even returning his Presidential salary to the government.

Second - a really like this idea. Government officials should not be staying at luxury hotels at the taxpayer's expense. Make them stay at a Motel Six - they will leave the light on for them.

Tip of the hat to Don Surber for the link.

Was turned on to this site: MAGA pill

From the website:

Importance of Archiving President Trump's accomplishments:
The Mainstream Media news outlets have completely ignored President Trump's accomplishments and all of the positive things he has achieved while in office. They've instead decided to focus all of their time and effort waging a war against President Trump, his supporters and the MAGA agenda.

Donald J. Trump has achieved more for America in 3 years than any other President in history. It really makes you wonder if past presidents have even been trying at all!

MAGAPILL was created to preserve President Trump’s Legacy by archiving and listing his accomplishments.
Mainstream Media has gone out of their way to avoid casting Trump in a positive light. They don't want America to see all of the great things President Trump has accomplished that contridict all of their negative coverage.

If we don’t capture and archive what’s really going on, we’re leaving it up to the Maintream Media to define Trump’s Legacy and we can't let that happen!

Very nicely laid out and formatted. Quite the list of major accomplishments.
President Donald Trump puts the Energizer Bunny to shame.

* the title of the post? Two cultural references:

That moke turned into quite the RINO and it is coming home to roost - from Real Clear Politics:

Bolton's Security Clearance in Jeopardy in Wake of Book Leaks
In the late summer of 2018, just a few months into John Bolton’s national security adviser tenure, he strongly defended President Trump’s decision to revoke the security clearance of former CIA Director John Brennan, the pugnacious anti-Trump critic the president has called a “leaker,” “a liar” and ringleader of the debunked Russian collusion investigation.

At the time, Bolton accused Brennan of “politicizing intelligence,” both during the Obama administration and afterward, which he deemed a “very dangerous thing to do.”

That was then - this is now:

Nearly a year and a half later, the shoe is on the other foot.

Bolton left the White House in September 2019 in a public eruption of vitriol on both sides over the terms of his departure. He said he resigned; Trump says he fired the longtime national security hawk over foreign policy differences. More recently, Trump accused Bolton of trying to entangle the U.S. in multiple additional wars instead of ending them as the president had promised voters in 2016 he would do.

Bolton now faces the wrath of not just Trump but his legions of loyalists for volunteering to testify against the president in the impeachment trial, thus bolstering Democrats’ arguments that the president threatened Ukraine’s president with a quid pro quo over U.S. aid to extract a commitment to investigate Joe Biden and his son’s dealings in that country.

Seeing his security clearance revoked is an almost certainty for Bolton once the impeachment trial is over, according to two government officials who spoke on condition of anonymity, as well as legal experts – all of whom say Bolton could face additional fallout for his role in the impeachment drama this week.

One simply does not screw with the President - regardless of whom that might be and what you feel about the person and their politics. They will always have the last laugh... This is D.C. rule #1.

His resolution for the impeachment trial in the Senate is perfect - from Legal Insurrection:

McConnell Resolution: Closing Arguments on Monday, Impeachment Vote on Wednesday
The Senate voted not to call additional witnesses and bring forth new evidence 51-49, with Sens. Susan Collins (R-ME) and Mitt Romney (R-UT) voting yay with the Democrats.

The Senate then took a recess before voting on a motion from Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell to have closing arguments on Monday and vote on the articles on Wednesday.

And the upshot:

Then the Senate voted 53-47 to pass McConnell’s resolution.

So here is how it will go next week:

Monday: Closing arguments for four hours starting at 11 a.m. ET. Afterward, each senator will have 10 minutes.

This will lead into Tuesday and Wednesday.

The Senate will vote on the articles of impeachment on Wednesday at 4 p.m. ET.

What makes this so delicious is that President Trump's State of the Union speech is Tuesday evening. All the House Representatives and Senators have to be there and act nice to each other and to our President. Also, the first major Primary election is Wednesday in Iowa. Biden, Warren, Sanders, etc. are going to have to stay in D.C. - they will not be able to travel to Iowa to campaign and rally their base. Perfect timing. The SOTU will certainly be a speech to watch - lots of red meat between the lines...

Will January 31st for England be like July 4th is for us in a few years? Do not doubt it. From Breitbart:

Farage to Breitbart: Brexit a Historic Day for United Kingdom, Europe, and the Western World
Brexit leader Nigel Farage has hailed Brexit Day as a time to celebrate, but noted much work remains to be done and vowed he would be sticking around to hold the Prime Minister to his word.

Speaking to Breitbart News Network Editor-in-Chief Alex Marlow on the Breitbart News Daily show on Sirius XM on Brexit Eve, Brexit campaign leader Nigel Farage reflected on the truly historic events of Friday 31st 2020, as after almost 50 years the United Kingdom breaks free from “Project Europe”.

While this was a major moment for the United Kingdom itself, it would have reverberations around the Western world, where an ongoing struggle between populism — the will of ordinary people — and globalism is picking up pace.

Mr Farage, who has been campaigning for Britain to leave the European Union for 27 years, said today was the”beginning of the end” for the European Union, and predicted something much better would follow.

“It will take time, but I’m confident we will head towards a Europe of sovereign nations working and trading together, operating under fee markets and democratic principles,” he said.

“Brexit is not just historic for the United Kingdom, it is historic for the whole of Europe, and indeed politics across the whole West.”

Globalism is a big fat mistake - an idea that never would have seen the light of day except for the machinations of those people who stood to gain power and who wanted that power over their fellow citizens. To them? Door. Ass. Bang.

This is the beginning of freedom for the world. Let us celebrate.

Turnabout is fair play - impeachment

| No Comments

This would be fun to see - from American Thinker:

Impeach Pelosi/Schiff/Nadler for Abuse of Power
For three years, Democrats accused the president of having stolen the 2016 election. Now, they maintain, he is trying to steal the 2020 election. In reality, it was Hillary and members of the Obama administration (and probably Obama himself) who tried to steal the 2016 election and it is Pelosi, Schiff, and Nadler who are trying to steal 2020.

Pelosi, Schiff, and Nadler are using the power of their offices to erase the 2016 election, steal the 2020 Presidential Election, and damage Republican senators in purple states enough to flip the upper chamber to Democratic Party control.

Running on the issues against the successful Trump administration does not appeal to them. Instead, they are using impeachment as the means to rig the election to get control of the presidency and the Senate.

Should Republicans win a majority in the House this November -- not an entirely unlikely prospect with polls showing the public turning against the amorphous impeachment effort -- one of the first orders of business for the new majority leader should be to initiate Articles of Impeachment against Adam Schiff. The charge should be “Abuse of Power.”

After that, Republicans can do the same to Pelosi and Nadler.

Pure schedenfreude - give them a dose of their own medicine. Only this time, we will actually have wrongdoing.

Out of the loop - from The Daily Wire:

Joe Biden: ‘We Don’t Need Standing Armies’; ‘We Should Be Helping’ Communist China
Democrat presidential candidate Joe Biden made a series of troubling remarks this week about U.S. national security matters, stating that the U.S. does not need a standing military and that the U.S. should be focusing on helping communist China.

“We talk about China as our competitor? We should be helping, and benefiting ourselves by doing that,” Biden said during a campaign event in Iowa. “But the idea that China is going to eat our lunch, it was like I remembered debates in the late 90s, remember Japan was going to own us? Give me a break.”

The fact that he is the serious cantidate for the Democrat nomination give me a case of the blue-blind paralytic willies. Biden is just pandering to the millenials - he does not understand realpolitik. President Trump does which is why we are signing treaties right and left. Treaties that are benficial to the wishes and policies of these United States.

I like her - Tulsi Gabbard

| 1 Comment

She is a classical Democrat in the mold of J.F. Kennedy - if she were running for President, I would have a hard decision between her and Trump. She is not afraid of the outgoing (thankfully) Clinton cartel. From the New York Post:

Tulsi Gabbard sues Hillary Clinton for defamation
Democratic presidential hopeful Tulsi Gabbard has filed a defamation suit against Hillary Clinton for calling her a “Russian asset,” according to newly filed court papers.

“Tulsi Gabbard is running for President of the United States, a position Clinton has long coveted, but has not been able to attain,” Wednesday’s Manhattan federal lawsuit reads. “In October 2019 — whether out of personal animus, political enmity, or fear of real change within a political party Clinton and her allies have long dominated — Clinton lied about her perceived rival Tulsi Gabbard. She did so publicly, unambiguously, and with obvious malicious intent.”

The former secretary of state has refused to walk back comments she made during an Oct. 17 appearance on a podcast, in which she referred to the Hawaii congresswoman as a “favorite of the Russians.”

I am saddened by the news of her upcoming suicide. She will be shooting herself in the back of the head three times.
