The Trump MIracle

I thank the Good Lord above every night for the opportunity to be alive during his presidency.

Believe me when I say that we've just seen a miracle. The advent of Donald Trump makes the fall of Jericho's walls seem like small change.

It would have been a sour note indeed to play out my last years with Obama as the high point.

Imagine saying to yourself, man it was bad during his tenure but now? With Hillary as President, it’s a million times worse as Hillary makes the Democrats the permanent Overlords.

We didn’t just dodge a bullet, we put rocket boosters on the planet and escaped before the sun blew up.

Slightly adapted from comments.

The thing that makes Trump “seem” so spectacular is that he has balls in an environment that has been nutless for decades.

The thing that makes Trump “seem” so spectacular is that he has balls in an environment that has been nutless for decades. When a normal grown man with AC-DC sized big balls pops on the scene amongst an ocean of cucks and wusses there is an automatic and continuous tsunami-earthquake-typhoon of emotions everywhere simultaneously. Nervous reactions.

Out here in Realville men have been acting like men all along so we have been stymied as to why DC males act like they do. Until Trump, we had nothing in that realm to compare the cucks to. Now we do, and we feel embarrassment for them.

And we want them to know severe punishment. If you are born a male you are a man all of your life but if you choose to behave like a child or a woman then you need to be corrected, violently if necessary, or preferably, eliminated, permanently so as to not infect others.

Out here in Realville Trump would blend right in and seem like everyone else.

Corrected for grammar.

It’s Time for a Thoroughgoing Revamping of the Intelligence Community.

Via Instapundit.

Among the urgent tasks we must quickly undertake, few are so urgent as a thoroughgoing revamping of the intelligence community. At the moment, it isn’t very impressive in either of the two main activities with which it’s entrusted: spying on our enemies and supporting our friends. You can see this easily enough. The Israelis, not the CIA et al., made off with the Iranians’ secret nuclear plans. So much for effective espionage. And there are two very closely linked enemies, Iran and Venezuela, that should be prime targets for subversion, but we don’t seem to be making good progress.

On the other hand, the intelligence community seems to do well, or at least try harder, at subverting our own political order, as we’ve learned over the recent past.

Or maybe not. Although the attempted subversion of Trump and associates produced the downfall of Lt. General Michael Flynn, the centerpiece of the intel operation—the Mueller show investigation—came up empty-handed, and the top levels of the FBI and CIA now face inquiries from Attorney General Barr, Justice Department Inspector General Horowitz, and the U.S. Attorney in Connecticut. Some of our top spooks have been fired.

Rather like Iran and Venezuela, isn’t it?

Here's a link to the original article.

When Abortion Suddenly Stopped Making Sense

Powerful argument by feminist about when abortion became real to her.
At the time of the Roe v. Wade decision, I was a college student — an anti-war, mother-earth, feminist, hippie college student. That particular January I was taking a semester off, living in the D.C. area and volunteering at the feminist “underground newspaper” Off Our Backs. As you’d guess, I was strongly in favor of legalizing abortion. The bumper sticker on my car read, “Don’t labor under a misconception; legalize abortion.”
But, at the time, we didn’t have much understanding of what abortion was. We knew nothing of fetal development. We consistently termed the fetus “a blob of tissue,” and that’s just how we pictured it — an undifferentiated mucous-like blob, not recognizable as human or even as alive. It would be another 15 years of so before pregnant couples could show off sonograms of their unborn babies, shocking us with the obvious humanity of the unborn.

We also thought, back then, that few abortions would ever be done. It’s a grim experience, going through an abortion, and we assumed a woman would choose one only as a last resort. We were fighting for that “last resort.” We had no idea how common the procedure would become; today, one in every five pregnancies ends in abortion.

Nor could we have imagined how high abortion numbers would climb. In the 43 years since Roe v. Wade, there have been 59 million abortions. It’s hard even to grasp a number that big. Twenty years ago, someone told me that, if the names of all those lost babies were inscribed on a wall, like the Vietnam Veterans Memorial, the wall would have to stretch for 50 miles. It’s 20 years later now, and that wall would have to stretch twice as far. But no names could be written on it; those babies had no names.

Let’s Call the Russian Collusion ‘Hoax’ What it Really Is

It was much more than a hoax.  Roger Kimball:
But thinking about it, I conclude that the term “hoax” is wholly inadequate to describe the enormity of the political scandal that was perpetrated against Donald Trump, against the office of the president, and ultimately against the American people.

For one thing, the word “hoax” implies something jocular or prankish. The joke might be malicious, but it is still intended to be humorous. There was nothing at all humorous about what just happened in our political life, though the hysteria of the anti-Trump chorus—the pussy-behatted females complaining about how “crude” Trump was, the “comedian” who paraded about with a bloody doll’s head representing the president, the tears and imprecations and jeremiads disgorged by the press and by Trump’s political enemies: all that did have a sort of ghastly if pathetic humor about it.

But when we step back and consider what actually happened over the past three years—and, more, what almost happened—it is clear that the word “hoax” does not begin to cover the reality of what I have been calling for many months the greatest political scandal in the history of the American republic.

Does that, too, sound hyperbolic, like worrying about commas when Shanghai is burning? Some people think so. I have several times said why I think they are wrong.

Perhaps the best way of summarizing my disagreement is by suggesting an alternative to the word “hoax.” It’s not a novel suggestion.

On the contrary, it’s often been used in concert with or as a synonym for “hoax.” But I think it is a better word in this context because it expresses the malign intention behind the multifarious activities directed against candidate Trump and then President Trump. The word I have in mind is “coup.”
We should face up to that unpleasant fact and call things by their real names. The actions taken by the Obama Administration threatened not just Donald Trump and his presidency but the very processes and protocols by which the peaceful transition of power has been effected in the United States. As L.J. Keith observed, “Even in the most contentious elections and after disputed results, there was never been this sort of dangerous, systematic, deliberate rejection of the will of the people. The abrogation of the constitution to use extrajudicial methods to destroy the incoming president. It is the very definition of a coup.”

Indeed. So let’s call it what it is. A coup.

It's not that uncommon in the Third World and our coup attempt was engineered by our very own Son of Africa.

'This Is Exactly Like The Handmaid's Tale,' Declares Local Woman After Man Opens Door For Her

FAIRFAX, VA—Local woman Jenny Parsons was leaving a meeting, minding her own business, at the office building where she works Thursday. She thought she was just filing out like all the other employees.

Little did she know, she was actually about to encounter evidence that her workplace is no better than the oppressive, totalitarian regime depicted in Margaret Atwood's The Handmaid's Tale.

Her coworker, Jake, smiled and held the door for her, prompting Parsons to explode almost immediately into a rant about how this was just more evidence that America is literally like something out of a dystopian novel she's read about on the internet.

"Where are we, Gilead?" she said loudly as the confused man held the door for her. "Why does no one else but me see how oppressive this is toward women? This is exactly like The Handmaid's Tale. This is the future Hulu warned us about."

The woman reportedly makes the comparison often.

"Just last week, she stubbed her toe and suggested it was exactly like the dystopian nightmare Mike Pence wants for our nation," said her next-door neighbor, Freida.

At publishing time, Parsons had walked by a brand-new Chick-fil-A restaurant under construction and made the comparison again as frightened and confused building contractors backed away from her slowly.

Why Liberals Hate Chick-fil-A

Table set aside on Memorial Day at Chick-fil-A

Chick-fil-A is unabashedly pro-American. I suspect that is the real reason for the animus that so many liberals bear against the company. There was a time when liberals were generally patriotic. George McGovern is a good example: he was wrong on just about every issue, but he was a veteran who loved his country. That is no longer true.

Now, while no doubt there are honorable exceptions, liberals are usually anti-American. They have been taught a twisted, Zinnified version of American history, and they have internalized a Chomskyite view of the world in which all evils are traceable to American misdeeds. Liberals tend to be angry, unhappy people, and it is convenient for them to blame their problems on their country’s supposed failings. Organizations like Chick-fil-A that are pro-America, pro-religion (Chick-fil-A restaurants are closed on Sunday), and culturally upbeat are anathema.

Segregation Is Thriving on the Left

What did you think would happen if you engaged in identity politics and elected Barack Hussein Obama and his Communist allies?

A massive number of schools have institutionalized racial segregation across vast swaths of campus life: “About 46 percent (80 colleges out of 173 surveyed) segregate student orientation programs; 43 percent (75 colleges out of the total) offer segregated residential arrangements; and 72 percent (125 colleges out of the total) segregate graduation ceremonies.”

Tearing the country apart is not a bug, it's a feature of the Left.

Russia hoax origins to be exposed as Trump authorizes AG Barr to declassify Russia probe documents

Heads are exploding all over the beltway, as the unraveling of the biggest political scandal in American history enters a new stage. Make no mistake, there is a plan and a timetable designed for maximum dramatic impact. President Trump finally has taken the long-awaited step to lift the cloak of classification and uncover the weaponization of the federal government’s law enforcement and intelligence agencies against his candidacy and then presidency.

Meanwhile, the Shithole Press will do all it can to cover for the Democrats and Team Obama.  (many of whom are Communists)

The leading lights of the Obama Administration were all Communists

Obama choose Communists and Marxists for the highest, most powerful positions in our land, including his closest political advisors, and his head of the CIA. These facts are not in dispute. Most are openly admitted by the people in question, as necessary damage control. Our press chooses not to report them.

Professor Paul Kengor has extensively researched the Chicago communists whose progeny include David Axelrod, Valerie Jarrett, and Barack Hussein Obama. Add the openly Marxist, pro-communist Ayers, and you have many of the key players who put Obama into power.

It's as if the role of the press is to deceive the American public.

Ralph Northam Thinks Voters Are A Bunch Of Gullible Fools

At this point, Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam should be chased from office for continuing to treat voters like they’re a bunch of credulous idiots.

If you had dressed up as a Klansman or put on blackface for a costume party when you were a 24-year-old student, would you remember the incident? Smearing black makeup all over your face to look like Michael Jackson or draping yourself in a white sheet to cosplay a racist cross-burner—even way back in 1984 Virginia—wasn’t just another Saturday night out drinking with friends. It would take a bit of effort. It might be noticed. It might even make the yearbook.

If someone accused me of attending a costume party dressed as a member of the Schutzstaffel, I would be exceptionally confident in my answer. Yet Northam couldn’t initially recall if he was the one wearing blackface or the one wearing the KKK robe in the 1984 Eastern Virginia Medical School yearbook photo with his name attached—which is definitely a weird thing to be unsure about....

One also imagines that people like CNN’s Chris Cuomo wouldn’t be “okay” with moving on if a conservative governor had been seen wearing blackface. “If you hold on to your guns, and you wait,” he told Anderson Cooper yesterday, “there is a good chance that if the media can’t make it happen soon, they will go away.” A skeptic may note that the way the Northam stories have been covered tells us that the media doesn’t want it to happen....

In a decent world, Northam would have stepped down after casually describing and defending legal infanticide while discussing a Democratic Party bill that would have allowed abortion until the very moment of birth without any restrictions. But don’t worry, you survived, governor. You can stop treating everyone like a bunch of gullible fools.

Babylon Bee: Demanding To Know Why He Allowed President Trump To Get Elected, Dems Subpoena God

WASHINGTON, D.C.—Trying to get to the bottom of how and why President Trump was elected, House Democrats issued a subpoena to the Almighty God to force Him to testify in Congress Wednesday....

After the Lord, who sits in the heavens and does all He pleases, did not show up at their hearing, Democrats were seen eating KFC to mock Him for being "a chicken" and issued a stern warning.

Babylon Bee: My Death Star, My Choice

Hey, loyal subjects of the Empire. Darth Vader here, Dark Lord of the Sith and renowned pro-choice advocate.

Plenty of buzz has been going around the comlinks about if we should have destroyed Alderaan. Some people claim we are killing innocent people with our giant green super laser that can snuff out billions of insignificant little lives all at once. Some point out that the lives we claim are actual living creatures, rather than just a clump of rebel scum.

Let me be clear about this once and for all:

Mark Steyn on the American Taliban

From 18 years ago, but still fresh and insightful today.

A fortnight ago, two Americans met in the northern Afghan desert, at the Qala-I-Jangi prison. One was a CIA special-ops man, Mike Spann. The other was a prisoner he was interrogating, a Taleban soldier called "Abdul Hamid", the nom de guerre of John Walker, formerly of northern California. Mr Spann will be buried tomorrow by his wife and three young children in Arlington National Cemetery. He was kicked, beaten and apparently bitten to death in an uprising of captured Taleban, who then booby-trapped his body with grenades. Mr Walker, by contrast, is one of 86 people to survive the four-day prison battle, and the question now is what to do with him.

If nothing else, he's usefully nailed one of the self-serving myths peddled after the awesome intelligence failure of September 11th: awf'lly sorry we failed to see it coming, said the high-ranking suits, but it's impossible to do any covert deep-cover stuff out in Afghanistan; these fellows are all cousins and brothers-in-law - a guy from Jersey would stick out like a lap-dancer in a burqa.

As we now know, instead of being full of fearsome Pashtun warriors whose ferocious lineage rings down the centuries, the Omar/Osama ranks were like a novelty Gap ad, "Losers of Many Nations" – misfit Saudis and Pakis, Limeys and LaLaLanders. Anyone can walk in off the street and be assistant supervisor of the third-floor latrine in Tora Bora by nightfall. The only distinguishing feature about John Walker is that he's such an obvious compendium of clapped-out clichΓ©s from America's Left Coast the wonder is the mullahs didn't automatically take him for a CIA plant.

Will the Spygate perpetrators ever be held accountable?

That’s the trillion dollar question, isn’t it?

I used to think I was rather cynical. And I was. But in recent years I’ve become more so. I’ve seen people get away with much more than I had thought they’d be able to get away with (Lois Lerner, call your office). And what’s more, I’ve seen more of my friends wink at it because it suits their political ends.

So the question of whether anyone will pay for what we have come to call Spygate is a real one, and how you answer it depends on how cynical you have become...
From the comments:
... the damage done to the fabric of this country by outsiders is as nothing when compared to what has been wrought by the many falsehoods within the disinformation and the misinformation disseminated by CNN, MSNBC, WaPo, and the NYT over the same period.
The Swamp could not have done this without the press that spread the lie 24/7 at jet engine decibels.  The press must be punished as much as anyone in this disaster.

Democrats Are Painted Into a Corner

Conrad Black

Since the day after the 2016 election they have been threatening this, placing their chips on the Russian-collusion fantasy and then on the phantasmagoric charade of obstruction of justice. The attorney general accurately gave the ingredients of the offense of obstruction of justice in his four-page summary of the Mueller report: a corrupt act for corrupt purposes in contemplation of a legal proceeding.

The attorney general, William Barr, the then deputy attorney general Rod Rosenstein, and the Justice Department counsel concurred that none of the elements was present in the conduct of the president as recounted by Mr. Mueller. The dream died, except in the febrile imagination of the Democrats, who launched an unfounded attack on the attorney general’s integrity.

Everyone knows that the prospects of a successful move to impeach and remove the president from office by two thirds of the Senate finding that he has been proved beyond a reasonable doubt to have committed high crimes and misdemeanors, as the Constitution requires, are less than zero.

The turn of the tables has been exquisite and complete. The idea that anyone ever nominated by a serious American political party would collude with a foreign power to rig a presidential election is insane. No one, not even a scoundrel such as Aaron Burr or a third-party naif such as Henry Wallace, would have dreamt of such a thing.

But in their desperation and denial after the unimaginable victory of someone pledged to clean out the entire political class that has ruled America since the Reagan years, the Democrats paid $10 million for a false dossier on Mr. Trump, corrupted and politicized the intelligence services and the FBI, set up an echo chamber of self-verification with the national media Trump had already reviled as dishonest, and provoked the creation of a special counsel to look into Trump–Russian collusion.

The Republican congressional leaders sat on their hands to see if the leader none of them had supported would be impeached, and the Democrats and their scripted press choristers smugly carped and waited like noisy crocodiles for their victim to be reduced to inert helplessness. Guess what.

That Time the Media Dubbed Michael Avenatti ‘Savior of the Republic:’

There are a lot of red faces out there today, or at least there would be if any of the media hacks who once glorified Avenatti were capable of shame. They'll just move right along as if nothing happened, but the rest of us will remember. David Rutz at the Washington Free Beacon certainly remembers. Here's Rutz's latest supercut, and it's a doozy.  The Dems sure can pick them, huh?

Getting to the Bottom of EPA Climate Fraud

We're going to get a scientific Truth Commission to figure who committed this fraud.

In December 2009, the Obama Environmental Protection Agency issued its Endangerment Finding (EF) – decreeing that carbon dioxide (CO2) and other “greenhouse gases” (GHGs) endanger the health and welfare of Americans. In the process, EPA ignored the incredible economic, health and welfare benefits of fossil fuels – and the fact that (even at just 0.04% of the atmosphere) carbon dioxide is the miracle molecule that enables plants to grow and makes nearly all live on Earth possible.

EPA turned CO2 into a “dangerous pollutant” and ruled that fossil fuels must be eradicated. The agency subsequently used its EF to justify tens of billions of dollars in climate research, anti-fossil fuel regulations, and wind and solar subsidies; President Obama’s signing of the Paris climate treaty; and proposals to spend trillions of dollars a year on Green New Deal (GND) programs.

And yet, despite multiple demands that this be done, there has never been any formal, public review of the EF conclusion or of the secretive process EPA employed to ensure the result of its “analysis” could only be “endangerment” – and no awkward questions or public hearings would get in the way.

‘No Way Obama Was Not Told’ - Former Intel Officer Tony Shaffer on Spying on Trump Campaign

Intelligence expert Tony Shaffer makes several BIG points:
  1. Barr will focus on what authority the government had to spy on Team Trump
  2. Who was involved?
  3. How many agencies were involved? 
  4. What was the predicate for surveillance?
  5. Was the government involved in attempted entrapment?
  6.  Which foreign governments were involved? 
  7. The story changed from "we were not spying" to "Trump is crazy so we had to spy."
  8. The media is no longer a legitimate source of facts.
  9. Where did the Steele Report come from and why did Mueller not address this issue?
  10. The Russians probably fed false information to Steele to create political turmoil in the US.
  11. To do what the government did required approval from the White House. 
  12. Trump is probably not the only candidate who was spied on.
  13. The Inspector General report will only look at deviations from rules; it's going to be a disappointment.  
  14. This will require a very large investigation and where do you find people who can be trusted.

Long Read of the Week: “We’re Not Going to Talk Our Way out of This” by Titus Quinctius Cincinnatus“

It’s certainly wonderful to think that “all we need to do is find ways to constructively disagree with each other,” and think that this would solve most, if not all, of our problems. But there’s a tremendous difficulty with applying this to the modern ideological divide between Right and Left, the “reactionary” (true or otherwise) and the progressive. The difficulties lie in that this line of thinking implies that there are two sides which actually want rational discussion and a settling of differences rationally. Yet, there are not.

Indeed, what the Left wants is precisely the opposite of this. The progressive Left has not, does not, and never will seek some sort of accommodation with its ideological enemies. Instead, the Left seeks to acquire for itself the institutional and social power to silence its enemies. Ultimately, this proclivity stems from the very nature of what drives the “progressive idea,” which is that the “arc of history” is always bending towards the advancement of what the Left believes is “progress.” Since this trend is inexorable, there is no need, ultimately, to compromise with the Right, merely find various ways to outlast them and hasten their demise. This sort of thinking is responsible for everything from doxxing to the gulags and explains why progressivism is the single greatest evil that this world has ever seen.

If Globalization Meant China Could Turn off Your Fridge, Would You Still Like It?

Is it really a good idea to be dependent on people that dislike you and wish you ill?

The Chinese state could cut off cars and household appliances from Britain's 5G network if the country's telecoms giant is allowed to help build the system, according to a former government security adviser.

Peter Varnish, who was a senior Ministry of Defence official, suggested a decision by Theresa May to allow Huawei to help build even limited parts of the network such as antennas and other “non-core” infrastructure, could allow Beijing to "shut down" signals to vehicles and everyday objects.

In a report due to be published this week, Dr Varnish warns that a manufacturer could "interfere" with antenna designs and even block or divert signals away from individual devices.

While Cracking Down On Fringe Conspiracy Theorists, Facebook Accidentally Bans CNN

Babylon Bee:

"Our algorithm looked for pages and people that were constantly peddling outlandish conspiracy theories, and it seems to have banned CNN for some reason," a Facebook representative said in a statement. "It appears that since CNN is still insisting that President Trump colluded with Russia, despite a mountain of facts and evidence showing that he did not, our computer systems determined that our network would have much less fake news without CNN."

Setting up George Papadopoulos

Tucker Carlson's Right

The Ruling Class hates and fears him ... with good reason.

What, specifically, changed the mind of the formerly bow-tied boy-Buckley (or as a friend put it to me, “typical conservative dorkwad”) and launched Carlson toward becoming the leading light of a new conservative movement?

“Two things,” Carlson said.
First, the Iraq war. Like most people I knew and worked with, I supported that war. But I wanted to see it firsthand. So in December 2003, I went to Iraq on assignment for Esquire. What I saw was horrifying.

He describes a scene of total chaos and omnipresent mortal danger:

Before Iraq, I assumed that when smart people of goodwill got together, they make good decisions. Seeing Iraq up close was a formative change in my thinking. It demonstrated the ability of smart people to make obviously unwise, faith-based decisions. What actually happened was not what they promised—not even close. That set off a chain reaction in my mind. I was sincerely shocked that the people in charge were actually really unwise. Worse, they didn’t care. They didn’t even try to correct course. The whole thing made me very distrustful of theories.

And the second?

I’ve been going to the same town in Maine for basically my whole life. Not for a week or two now and then, but three or four months a year for 40 years. I watched it change from clean, reliable, orderly, decent, and bourgeois into something different and diminished. Not just poor but degraded. I asked myself “Why is this happening? What led to this? How did this go from being such a great place to such a troubled place? And why is nobody noticing, or pretending it’s not happening?”

The David French problem.

David French says he's a Christian (I take him at his word) who despises Donald Trump for his sins.  Christian theology tells us we are all sinners and we should eschew sin.  Reading French I get the impression that the sins that trouble French the most are sexual in nature.  

He then goes on to condemn Franklin Graham for condemning Bill Clinton for the sexual sins while passing over Trumps’s sexual transgressions.  A case can be made that Graham is a hypocrite regarding sexual immorality.  In defense of Graham, it should be noted that Trump is accused of consensual sex while Clinton is accused of rape.  Both Christian and secular morality note that there is a difference.  Beyond the issue of private morality, as a matter of public policy, it should be noted that Trump protects Christians from attacks by the Left whereas Clinton (and his wife) do not.  

I have no problem with theologians condemning sinners of all political persuasions.  But French is writing in a political publication, not a religious one.  The religious community is assumed to have a Republican and Conservative orientation.  That’s why French is even a factor in discussions held by the Right side of the political spectrum.  He is operating in the political arena, not the theological one.  He's a political sniper hiding behind religious camouflage.  Let’s not let him get away with drawing invidious comparisons.  He’s saying that if you are as sexually pure as Adolf Hitler – who married Eve Braun as his regime was ending - and it’s a choice between Adolf and The Donald, you should be drawn to the one who spent less time bedding playmates.  

The American people made a choice of fully understanding the choices they were making.  Trump’s sexual antics were the talk of the country decades before the election.  After the Billy Bush tape, no one could pretend that Donald Trump was a choir boy and Trump never pretended to be anyone other than he was.  No one doubts that he paid hush money to strippers and Playboy Models he bedded.  His denials are strictly pro-forma.

The people voted for him because he was the better alternative to a political and moral philosophy of the Left - the political movement that hates America and despises Christianity.   To make the case that the standard bearer that opposes that Left and supports Christians as a matter of public policy is profoundly immoral.  I care not a whit if David French believes he is a follower of Christ in his personal life, David French should be profoundly repudiated.   

Punch back twice as hard

Students cleared in college rape say SC school discriminates against men, lawsuit says

Two former male students from Wofford College say the way the school handled an unfounded sexual assault complaint against them amounts to sexual harassment.

The unnamed men sued the Upstate, South Carolina college saying that it destroyed evidence that was favorable to the men and that “hundreds of students at the school heard the false allegations that the Plaintiffs were rapists.”


The men also say there is evidence the woman sexually harassed one of them.

The worst leadership class of all time

With China and tariffs in the news the last few days, the headlines have been driving the market.  On the whole, I think that working for a level playing field vs-a-vs our trading partners is long over-due.

The US has been running huge deficits domestically and corporate America has been outsourcing manufacturing to low labor-cost countries for decades.  The stock market cheered each time a company announced layoffs and outsourcing.

 It has devastated a large part of the country that once thrived as manufacturing centers, left millions unemployed, and lots of American cities and town - like Detroit, once the world's auto capital - hollowed out. 

All the while radical environmentalists in and out of government suppressed domestic energy production and made us increasingly vulnerable to foreign despots and petro-sheiks.

There is a great deal of anger at the leaders who allowed this ... no, made it happen.  They bragged that they were the "Best and the Brightest."  They preened about their superior sophistication and morality.  Instead, they were the worst and the dumbest, and they were evil.

Colorado School Shooter Posted About Hating 'All These Christians Who Hate Gays'

""You know what I hate?" Devon Erickson, 18, wrote on Facebook in 2014, according to a news report on Wednesday. "All these Christians who hate gays"

"Authorities have not determined a motive yet."

Not even a clue, eh?

He also hated Trump. Still clueless?
Just antifa-style thugs who took their violence to a further extreme. They're different in degree, not in kind, from the usual lefty BrownShirts. Instead of "punch a fascist," their plan was "shoot a fascist."

Should we trust the political judgment of a brain trust that loses a billion dollars on a single acquisition, for example?

Burger King's Too Stupid for Words Ad Campaign

A modest proposal

Federal Judge Henry E. Hudson has ruled that the Virginia law that requires abortions to be performed by doctors is invalid during the first trimester, opening the way for pretty much anybody to abort babies, giving those who once performed abortions with coat hangers in back allies an opportunity to resume their old trade.

Now that Judge Hudson’s superior wisdom has prevailed, I have a suggestion for the Virginia legislature: go out of business. It would save Virginia taxpayers a lot of money if we simply turned the lawmaking and rule-setting function over to the judiciary and eliminated the legislative middlemen. Being ruled by un-elected judges with the Solomon-style wisdom of Judge Henry E Hudson also removed the burden on the citizens to bother voting for the people to represent them. 

We can hardly wait for one of Judge Hudson's associates to rule that post-birth abortion is not only legal, but a judicial sacrament.

A win-win for everyone.

Clinton Projection Syndrome

The reason that foreign oligarchs are no longer donating millions of dollars to the Clinton Foundation, and that Bill Clinton is not being offered $500,000 for speaking appearances in Moscow, is simply because Hillary Clinton is not secretary of state. She is no longer in a public position to hector her colleagues into approving pro-Russian commercial deals, such as the one that gave Russian interests access to North American uranium....

For much of her professional life, Hillary Clinton had acted above and beyond the law on the assumption that as the wife of a governor, as first lady of the United States, as a senator from New York, as secretary of state and as a two-time candidate for the presidency, she could ignore the law without worry over the consequences.

For Clinton now to project that the president should be indicted suggests she is worried about her own potential indictment. And she is rightly concerned that for the first time in 40 years, neither she nor her husband is serving in government or running for some office, and therefore could be held accountable.
