And For The Win!!!!!!! Do it, Pruitt!!!!!

image

In case you haven’t heard, yet, Trump just nominated Oklahoma Attorney General Scott Pruitt to head the EPA!!!!!!!

Now, I’ve got church choir practice in just a few, but, this deserves some celebratory Irish Crème for my coffee! 

As AG for OK, Pruitt has opposed the EPA in almost every opportunity!  As the EDF put it, “Tries to block every EPA rule he sees”.  Ha!!!!!!  I can almost hear the heads exploding as we speak!!!!! 

He’s everything the greentards hate!  He’s a climate skeptic, he’s against the intrusion and overreach of the federal government, he’s also a friend of the Greens of Hobby Lobby and intervened on their behalf to the SCOTUS on their roil! 

While I’m skeptical of some of Trump’s picks, such as McMahon for the SBA, this one hits it out of the park!  Go Team!!!!!!!

I think the futures for both traditional and alternate energy just took a hit!

LOL!!!!! Kid Rock Selling Merchandise!!!!!!

image

 

The blurred out “word” is “dumbf#ckistan” ……. LMAO!!!!!!   And, yes, this is real stuff you can buy!

Now, I know we shouldn’t look down on our fellow Americans for bitterly clinging to their copies of Das Kapital and their irrational fervent belief in global warming, but, after all the vile hatred and spewing of irrational nonsense by the leftards, and, as it continues today,  it’s a bit of fun to poke back a bit.  h/t Breitbart

The man isn’t even president yet, but, Trump just had the Japanese outfit “Soft Bank” announce a $50 billion investment in US start-up companies.  This is after he kept an American business from moving to Mexico. 

It seems Trump knows what I have known for many, many years.  And, it also seems other businesses know the same thing …….. that is, the businesses of the world need the US, not the other way around.

The US is the largest market in the world.  As I have advocated almost since the beginning of this blog, we can impose tariffs on imports.  This creates a choice for businesses wishing to do business with the US.  Either they swallow and take the tariffs, or build their wares here.  ……. ‘but, but, but, what about a trade war with China and stuff!?1?!?!?!?!?’ …… meh!  I literally LOL’d the other day when a read a threat about China not importing US grain to their country as a potential response to tariffs.  ……. Yeh, that’ll prolly be just fine.  We’ll keep our food, you can keep your cheap a$$ crap products.  We’ll eat, open and build new businesses which make the same crap you’re selling us, and, you’re people will go hungry as you try to sell your cheap crap wares to place like Nigeria, Latvia, and Indonesia ……. wait, no, not Indonesia, they’re making the same crap, only cheaper.  Maybe Viet….. no, not them either, Ind …… no, prolly not them, either.  I know!!!!!  Russia!!!!!!!

Well, there’s always the EU!  But, they’re already selling to the collapsing faux union.  The question with the EU is how many nation-states will get out from underneath it before it implodes upon itself? 

Speaking of …… Merkel is mystifying me.  It appears, so far, that she intends to run again.  Why?  Hasn’t she done enough?  But, I wonder if she’ll feel the same way if LePenn wins in France and Italy continues done it’s recent path?  With Britain leaving …… well, what’s left except some impoverished nations being Islamisized?

Well, I covered a lot of ground with this post …… sorry it wasn’t more cohesive, but, I’m busy!

Beautiful Rant From Losing Coach!!!!!!

This needs stated, in many different ways, over and over again!!!!  Hats off to coach Walz!!!!

Walz is the coach of the woman’s Louisville basketball team.  They just lost.  Here’s his post game interview!

This is the shortened version.  If you let the autoplay go on, you can watch the full video, which is well worth it! 

For those who may be reluctant to watch the video, it’s about our society raising a bunch of kids thinking it’s okay to lose and that everyone should go home with a trophy.  …… he’s spot on!

Have You Signed The “Dump Kellogs” Petition Yet?

image

Well, I’m a little late to the party …. sort of.  I signed the petition days ago.  For some reason, I failed to post about this, here.

For those who don’t read Breitbart, let me give you some background on why you should sign the pledge to dump Kelloggs.

Apparently, Kelloggs was advertising with Breitbart.  After the election, and, most likely with some prompting by some idiot leftards, Kelloggs informed Breitbart that they would no longer be advertising with them because they are not “aligned with our values as a company.”

To be sure, some of Breitbart’s values are not aligned with mine, either.  However, they do present an important perspective and a different point of view. 

While it is certainly within Kelloggs right and prerogative to advertise with whomever they choose, I find the reasoning a bit abhorrent.  This is, quite literally, Kelloggs caving to people who wish to silence free speech and a free press.  They knew they were caving to such vermin even before they sent their message to Breitbart. 

For far too long the left has used businesses and corporations as a bludgeon against non-leftarded perspectives and views.  I believe it is past time to give these businesses a real decision to make.  They’re worried about a letter signed by a couple thousand leftards?  They’re going to cave and become complicit in the left’s attack on the free press and speech?  That’s fine.  But, there should be a cost exacted for such cowardice. 

Corporations such as Kelloggs should do everything they can to be apolitical.  When they start becoming political tools, then, the people should respond. 

Click on the pick to sign the petition.

NFL Rushed Picks!!!!!

Sigh …… running late, so here are the winning picks for the NFL this week ……….

Chiefs, Saints, Pats, Broncs, Packers, Eagles, Dolphins, Bears, Raiders, Steelers, Redskins, Chargers, Seahawks, and Colts.

Dallas edged the Vikings on Thurs.

Some of these are tough picks and I’m likely to get some wrong, but, that’s my first blush.

HHS Diverting Funds To Accommodate Unaccompanied Illegal Alien Minors!!!!!!!

image

Unsurprisingly, there’s been a major surge in illegal entry in the US after Trump won the election, but, before he takes office.  Of course, president Zero is doing what he has always done about this problem, which is, nothing.

Now, much of the surge isn’t some group of people seeking seasonal work, it’s illegals sending their children across the border, after they’ve found themselves an asylum (sanctuary city) to reside in. 

Of course, instead of sending the intact family back across the border, the Feds hang on to the children for a while and seek legal residents (preferably family) to house them with.  All of this, of course, costs $billions to accommodate.  The costs have risen so much that our Health and Human Services (HHS) is diverting money from other more legitimate programs to house the poor angels.

Apparently, the federal program to care for these poor little rascals has run out of money, so, rather than stop the children from entering the US, we’re taking money from other programs to fund this program (to the tune of $167 million on top of the $171 million already allotted) until Congress allots them more money. 

According to the Center for Immigration Studies, HHS is taking from things like cancer and diabetes research in facilitate the human trafficking.  ……

….. That means that in order to provide services to the illegal alien youths, money is being taken from other vital health and welfare programs, including:

  • $14 million from the Health Resources and Services Administration, including $4.5 million from the Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program and $2 million from the Maternal and Child Health program;
  • $14 million from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, for contagious disease prevention and treatment and other critical public health programs;
  • $72 million from the National Institutes of Health, for research on cancer, diabetes, drug abuse, mental health, infectious diseases and much more;
  • $8 million from the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, for treatment and prevention programs;
  • $8 million from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services;
  • $39 million from the Children and Families Services Program;
  • $4 million from the Aging and Disability Services Programs;
  • $3 million from the Public Health and Social Services Emergency Fund, including more than $1 million from the Pandemic Influenza and BioShield Fund.

Did you all catch that?  They’re now taking money the US taxpayers set aside for children of fellow Americans who need help and are giving the money to the unaccompanied minor illegal aliens.

Great “Feel-Good” Story From The NFL!!!!!!!

image

Photo credit to USA Today.

image

The above pic is the last play of the game, ending on the 2 yard line. 

Kaepernick is not only an American Flag/National Anthem kneeling POS, he also is a Castro tee-shirt sporting POS, who praised Cuba’s literacy rate under the Castro regime, and condemned the US for FALSLY claiming the US spends more on our prison system than our education system. 

No word from Kaepernick about the abject poverty the people of Cuba are subjected to, or the mass murders committed by the Castro regime, the imprisonment of political rivals, the lack of basic human rights, etc., etc……..

So, just after the death of Fidel, Kaepernick’s 49er’s came to Miami to play a football game.  A pre-game interview didn’t go well, as Colin refused to condemn Castro.

As captioned in the top photo, #47 is Kiko Alonso, linebacker for the Miami Dolphins, whose father is a Cuban exile.  Alonso got the assist in the tackle on the last play of the game.  He also recovered a fumble and intercepted a pass in the Dolphin win over the ‘9ers.  Open-mouthed smile  Yeh!!!!!!!!!!

Could you even write a better script than that?

You can bet Humberto is loving this!  For another good read unrelated to football ….

Why all that Dancing in the Streets of Miami?

I think I’ll have a celebratory beer on this one!  Go Fish!

LOL!!!!! Trump’s Reaction To Castro’s Death!!!!

So, the world has one less murderous totalitarian communist.  The leftards of the world have reacted similar to such statements as these by Trudeau and Carter …

Statement by Prime Minister Justin Trudeau on the death of former Cuban President Fidel Castro: https://t.co/70ZqAfVWCR

— CanadianPM (@CanadianPM) November 26, 2016

“It is with deep sorrow that I learned today of the death of Cuba’s longest serving President.

“Fidel Castro was a larger than life leader who served his people for almost half a century. A legendary revolutionary and orator, Mr. Castro made significant improvements to the education and healthcare of his island nation.

“While a controversial figure, both Mr. Castro’s supporters and detractors recognized his tremendous dedication and love for the Cuban people who had a deep and lasting affection for “el Comandante”.

“I know my father was very proud to call him a friend and I had the opportunity to meet Fidel when my father passed away. It was also a real honour to meet his three sons and his brother President Raúl Castro during my recent visit to Cuba.

“On behalf of all Canadians, Sophie and I offer our deepest condolences to the family, friends and many, many supporters of Mr. Castro. We join the people of Cuba today in mourning the loss of this remarkable leader.”

Well, as the leftards bemoan the loss of their comrade, Trump had this to say on Twitter ……..

Fidel Castro is dead!

Nicely put, DJT, nicely put.

Happy Thanksgiving And Bonus NFL Picks!!!!!

 

I never pick the Thursday games.  Mostly because I’m too busy.  But, as I’m enjoying the morning, I thought, ‘why not’?  There are 3 games today, so ………..

 

(6-4-0) Vikings

(6-4-0) Lions  This is a game with huge playoff implications.  The Vikings got back onto their winning ways last week.  However, they’re going to Detroit to play, where the Lions are 4-1.  It’s a good matchup with a good offense facing a good defense.  But, I think the Lions will get them, today.

 

(6-3-1) Redskins

(9-1-0) Cowboys Another great game with playoff implications.  The Redskins are a very good team with a lot of weapons.  The Cowboys are a better team with more weapons.  OTOH, over the years I’ve come to know that the rivalry doesn’t care about that stuff.  Look for an intense game and another big test for the Dallas rookies.  Still, you’d have to be daft not to go with the ‘Boys in this one.

 

(5-5-0) Steelers  This is strange.  Having watched the Steelers offense, I don’t know why they’re only 5-5.  Having watched the Colts defense, I don’t know how they’ve managed a 5-5 record.  The answer, of course, is that the Steeler defense isn’t typical for a Steeler team, in that, they’re not that good, while the Colts offense is pretty good.  Look for another big day from Bell, and Luck.  But, I’m giving the edge to the Steelers.

(5-5-0) Colts

 

(3-6-1) Bengals

(5-5-0) Ravens  The Ravens lost last week when they abandoned the running game, and failed to properly adjust their defense to the Cowboys when they decided to run the ball.  I don’t think they’ll have the same problem this week.

 

(4-6-0) Rams

(4-6-0) Saints  Offense vs Defense!!!!  I love games like this!  However, I think the Rams and their woeful offense is more woeful than the Saints defense, especially now that the Rams are going with their rookie QB.

 

(4-5-1) Cardinals

(6-4-0) Falcons  What a difference a year makes!  If Palmer is going to step up as a premier QB, now would be the time for the Cards.  I don’t think he will.  I don’t know what’s wrong with him, this year.  Maybe father time has finally caught up with him.  IDK, but, I do know he hasn’t played well this year, and with the high-flying Falcon offense, he doesn’t have too many second chances.  Going with the Falcons on this one.

 

(1-9-0) 49ers 

(6-4-0) Dolphins Is anyone else enjoying the losses racked up by Kaepernick?  After Sunday it’s likely that he’ll be 0-6 this year. 

 

(2-8-0) Jaguars 

(5-5-0) Bills  The Jags are a terrible team this year.  The Bills are a pretty average team with a decent defense.  It’s not hard to pick.

 

(5-6-0) Titans  The Bears aren’t much better than aforementioned Jags.  The Titans are pretty average, themselves.  So, we go with the Titans.

(2-8-0) Bears

 

(7-3-0) Giants  The Giants will enjoy an away scrimmage against some B-team in Cleveland. 

(0-11-0) Browns

 

(4-6-0) Chargers

(6-4-0) Texans  This game isn’t all that easy to pick.  S.D.’s largest final deficit was 8 points (27-19) at the hands of a very good Bronco team.  The Texan offense is ….. well, offensive.  In spite of their 6-4 record they have a net point differential of –34.  That said, the Texans are 5-0 at home.  So, I’m going with the Texans, but, I wouldn’t be surprised if I turn out to be wrong on this one.

 

(7-2-1) Seahawks  The ‘Hawks seem to be on a collision course with the Cowboys in the NFC championship.  But, there are these pesky games which have to be played in the mean time.  That said, this could be a game worth watching.  The Seahawks aren’t nearly as dominate on the road (2-2-1)as they are at home.  But, the Buccs aren’t very good at home (1-4), so, there’s that.  I don’t think the Bucc O has an answer for the Hawk D.

(5-5-0) Buccaneers

 

(8-2-0) Patriots  Right now, the only question I have is which AFC West team is going to play the Pats in the AFC championship?  Take the Pats in this yawner.

(3-7-0) Jets

 

(4-6-0) Panthers

(8-2-0) Raiders  Did the Panthers wait too long before deciding to play football?  I think so.  I don’t think the Raiders are going to lose this one, and that’ll probably be the season for the Panthers. 

 

(7-3-0) Chiefs 

(7-3-0) Broncos  This is a huge game, and, I’ll be rooting for the Chiefs!  But, they’re playing in Mile High.  The loser of this one will have a tough time getting a home game in the playoffs …. if they make the playoffs.  I’m going with the Broncs on this one.

 

(4-6-0) Packers

(5-5-0) Eagles  The Eagles should get this one against a struggling Packers team, and continue their outside shot at the playoffs. 

 

Well, again, Happy Thanksgiving every one!  Enjoy some football, family, friends and food!!!!  And, remember the great God who makes all that we have possible!

Cartoon Of The Day!!!!! And More Confirmed Hate Hoaxes!!!!

image

The cartoon needs no words.  It’s self-evident.  Source is this FB place … surprised they haven’t been blocked by FB …… yet.

In seemingly unrelated, yet, very related news.  Here’s some more confirmed hoaxes, where people lied about Trump supporters doing exactly what the left really is …..

Kirkland Woman Fabricated Sexual Assault Because She Was ‘Distraught Over Election’

Students Face Disciplinary Action After Hoaxing ‘KKK’ Vandalism

Hate Hoax: Student Charged for Claiming Rock Attack by Trump Fans

Is there even one substantiated occurrence of a hate crime committed by a confirmed Trump supporter?  I haven’t found one. 

My opinion is that the fabrication of “hate crimes” by Trump supporters was much more than just the typical projection of the left.  It was concerted and coordinated as cover for the hate crimes against regular people who voted for and support Trump.
