Inflamed Impeachment Inquiry Intimates International Influence

“People need to keep in mind we have a legal system in this country, but not necessarily a system of justice”. – Former CIA Regional Director Robert David Steele “#MadamSpeaker today, #PresidentPelosi shortly thereafter, #MLKWeekend is underway” – January 18, 2019 Tweet by Donna Brazile, Former Chair of the Democrat National Committee As yet another ill-conceived attempt to delegitimize the Trump administration continues the question lingers as to what continues to drive all of this. As the inquiry drags on the case against Trump gets thinner and thinner and the…

The “Resistance” to Trump: Leslie Knope Strikes Back

Parks and Rec

The television sitcom Parks and Recreation is one of only a handful of fine moments in television’s recent history.  Whoever came up with the idea of a show having a rabid libertarian as the director of a city parks department — the very archetype of comfortable bureaucratic inefficiency — I mean, the jokes write themselves!  It was a stroke of genius. And, apparently, also prescient.   Because the longer I watch the ongoing battle between Donald Trump and the self-styled resistance both from outside and from within “his” own executive…

Coup or Crackdown; Race against History

“Trump is turning over rocks and the snakes are angry. He has turned on the lights and the cockroaches are scattering. The only way out for these people is to impeach the President” – Andrew Wilkow, XM Patriot Radio “It is the most reliable standard in politics. In fact…this is the Rosetta Stone to American Politics. Whatever the left accuses you of is exactly what they are doing themselves. Every time.” – Tucker Carlson, Fox News The newest impeachment efforts against President Trump are yet another fabrication by the left.…

Arabian Knights?

It has been almost two weeks at the time of this writing that missile and/or drone strikes were launched against Saudi Arabian oil production facilities. Lives were lost and a dent was put in global oil refinery capabilities. It is estimated that these attacks destroyed some five percent of the entire global refinery capability. Most readers might worry about the impact at the gas pump, but increased gas prices may be the least of our worries. To understand the full implications of this situation we have to go back to…

Crisis of Confidence

The last few weeks have exposed a major problem in the current political fabric in America. The Lewandowski hearings, the exchange with the President of Ukraine that is being used for more phony impeachment talk, along with other hysterical leftist carryings-on, has emphasized a growing lack of confidence in our national leadership. Little good can come from this accelerating phenomenon. Just a week ago Corey Lewandowski mocked a congressional inquiry panel about his involvement in the alleged Russian scandal. His responses were nearly as sophomoric at times as the punitive…

Freedom’s Last Stand?

“Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same.” – Ronald Reagan Last month my wife and I took a cruise into the Western Caribbean. It has been many years since we were able to embark on such a vacation. It was a welcome respite from the daily routine. This trip was a bit different than others. This excursion was experienced through the lens…

A few comments on the El Paso Manifesto written by white-supremacist Thanos wannabe

For those who want to read the El Paso manifesto for themselves, Drudge has a link to it.  Personally, I found him to be all over the map. He extols far-left, far-right, and can’t-even-spectrum-label-it views in the same paragraph sometimes, but it boils down to this.  He hates immigration, he sees the “invasion” of Latinos as being encouraged by the Democrats to increase their voting bloc so they can turn the US into a one-party country, but the Republicans are weak and pro-corporate, so a pox on both their houses.…

Unrepresentative

“What is happening in these ICE facilities [is that] they pilot how they can abuse privacy rights, how they can abuse human rights, and they scale that up.” – Rep. Ayanna Pressley “We shouldn’t revise history. We are a country built on the backs of slaves and stolen land. Independence Day allows us to reflect on how far we’ve come and how far we have to go.” – Rep. Ilhan Omar “Never again means something … the fact that concentration camps are now an institutionalized practice in the home of…

Donald Trump vs the Squad

Donald Trump saw “The Squad” getting all of the attention and wanted to involve himself somehow. Or maybe he saw too much attention being paid to his former friend Jeffrey Epstein’s child sex abuse case, or to the deplorable conditions in detention centers by the border, and he wanted a distraction. Whatever the motivation, it was a good political strategy to enter the fray with the “Dems in Disarray.” Unfortunately, he did it in a racist way. The Squad are to Nancy Pelosi what the Tea Party was to John…
