It’s Over!!!!!!!

Bye, Felicia!!!!!

The worst presidency in the history of the United States is officially over, and done!!!!

The American people persevered.  Thank God.  I don’t know how else it could have been done without Divine intervention. 

I know not what the future holds for the American people.  But, I believe if the promises are true, it’s a bright and prosperous future!  But, not just and only for the American people, but, for the people worldwide. 

After reading Trump’s speech, I was amazed at many of the points he touched on which echoed many of mine.  I don’t know who his speech writer was, but, he nailed it.

Left alone, most generally, the people win.  They make themselves prosperous and continually work towards happiness.  That’s what the people, plebs, do.  Constrain the bad actors and the people will get themselves in the right place. 

Reading Trump’s speech, that’s what I heard …….

TRUMP: 

Chief Justice Roberts, President Carter, President Clinton, President Bush, President Obama, fellow Americans and people of the world, thank you.

We, the citizens of America, are now joined in a great national effort to rebuild our country and restore its promise for all of our people.

Together, we will determine the course of America and the world for many, many years to come. We will face challenges, we will confront hardships, but we will get the job done.

Every four years, we gather on these steps to carry out the orderly and peaceful transfer of power, and we are grateful to President Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama for their gracious aid throughout this transition. They have been magnificent. Thank you.

Today’s ceremony, however, has very special meaning because today, we are not merely transferring power from one administration to another or from one party to another, but we are transferring power from Washington, D.C. and giving it back to you, the people.

For too long, a small group in our nation’s capital has reaped the rewards of government while the people have borne the cost. Washington flourished, but the people did not share in its wealth. Politicians prospered, but the jobs left and the factories closed. The establishment protected itself, but not the citizens of our country. Their victories have not been your victories. Their triumphs have not been your triumphs. And while they celebrated in our nation’s capital, there was little to celebrate for struggling families all across our land.

That all changes starting right here and right now because this moment is your moment, it belongs to you.

It belongs to everyone gathered here today and everyone watching all across America. This is your day. This is your celebration. And this, the United States of America, is your country.

What truly matters is not which party controls our government, but whether our government is controlled by the people.

January 20th, 2017 will be remembered as the day the people became the rulers of this nation again.

The forgotten men and women of our country will be forgotten no longer.

Everyone is listening to you now. You came by the tens of millions to become part of a historic movement, the likes of which the world has never seen before.

At the center of this movement is a crucial conviction, that a nation exists to serve its citizens. Americans want great schools for their children, safe neighborhoods for their families, and good jobs for themselves. These are just and reasonable demands of righteous people and a righteous public.

But for too many of our citizens, a different reality exists: mothers and children trapped in poverty in our inner cities; rusted out factories scattered like tombstones across the landscape of our nation; an education system flush with cash, but which leaves our young and beautiful students deprived of all knowledge; and the crime and the gangs and the drugs that have stolen too many lives and robbed our country of so much unrealized potential.

This American carnage stops right here and stops right now.

We are one nation and their pain is our pain. Their dreams are our dreams. And their success will be our success. We share one heart, one home, and one glorious destiny. The oath of office I take today is an oath of allegiance to all Americans.

For many decades, we’ve enriched foreign industry at the expense of American industry; subsidized the armies of other countries, while allowing for the very sad depletion of our military. We’ve defended other nations’ borders while refusing to defend our own.

And spent trillions and trillions of dollars overseas while America’s infrastructure has fallen into disrepair and decay. We’ve made other countries rich, while the wealth, strength and confidence of our country has dissipated over the horizon.

One by one, the factories shuttered and left our shores, with not even a thought about the millions and millions of American workers that were left behind. The wealth of our middle class has been ripped from their homes and then redistributed all across the world.

But that is the past. And now, we are looking only to the future.

We assembled here today are issuing a new decree to be heard in every city, in every foreign capital, and in every hall of power. From this day forward, a new vision will govern our land. From this day forward, it’s going to be only America first, America first.

Every decision on trade, on taxes, on immigration, on foreign affairs will be made to benefit American workers and American families. We must protect our borders from the ravages of other countries making our products, stealing our companies and destroying our jobs.

Protection will lead to great prosperity and strength. I will fight for you with every breath in my body and I will never ever let you down.

America will start winning again, winning like never before.

We will bring back our jobs. We will bring back our borders. We will bring back our wealth. And we will bring back our dreams.

We will build new roads and highways and bridges and airports and tunnels and railways all across our wonderful nation. We will get our people off of welfare and back to work, rebuilding our country with American hands and American labor.

We will follow two simple rules; buy American and hire American.

We will seek friendship and goodwill with the nations of the world, but we do so with the understanding that it is the right of all nations to put their own interests first. We do not seek to impose our way of life on anyone, but rather to let it shine as an example. We will shine for everyone to follow.

We will reinforce old alliances and form new ones and unite the civilized world against radical Islamic terrorism, which we will eradicate from the face of the Earth.

At the bedrock of our politics will be a total allegiance to the United States of America, and through our loyalty to our country, we will rediscover our loyalty to each other. When you open your heart to patriotism, there is no room for prejudice.

The Bible tells us how good and pleasant it is when God’s people live together in unity. We must speak our minds openly, debate our disagreements honestly, but always pursue solidarity. When America is united, America is totally unstoppable.

There should be no fear. We are protected and we will always be protected. We will be protected by the great men and women of our military and law enforcement. And most importantly, we will be protected by God.

Finally, we must think big and dream even bigger. In America, we understand that a nation is only living as long as it is striving. We will no longer accept politicians who are all talk and no action, constantly complaining, but never doing anything about it.

The time for empty talk is over. Now arrives the hour of action.

Do not allow anyone to tell you that it cannot be done. No challenge can match the heart and fight and spirit of America. We will not fail. Our country will thrive and prosper again.

We stand at the birth of a new millennium, ready to unlock the mysteries of space, to free the earth from the miseries of disease, and to harness the energies, industries and technologies of tomorrow. A new national pride will stir ourselves, lift our sights and heal our divisions.

It’s time to remember that old wisdom our soldiers will never forget, that whether we are black or brown or white, we all bleed the same red blood of patriots.

We all enjoy the same glorious freedoms and we all salute the same great American flag.

And whether a child is born in the urban sprawl of Detroit or the wind-swept plains of Nebraska, they look up at the same night sky, they will their heart with the same dreams, and they are infused with the breath of life by the same almighty creator.

So to all Americans in every city near and far, small and large, from mountain to mountain, from ocean to ocean, hear these words: You will never be ignored again.

Your voice, your hopes, and your dreams will define our American destiny. And your courage and goodness and love will forever guide us along the way.

Together, we will make America strong again. We will make America wealthy again. We will make America proud again. We will make America safe again. And yes, together we will make America great again.

Thank you. God bless you. And God bless America.

Thank you.

God bless America.

I have two fav paragraphs from this speech, here’s the first ….

At the center of this movement is a crucial conviction, that a nation exists to serve its citizens. Americans want great schools for their children, safe neighborhoods for their families, and good jobs for themselves. These are just and reasonable demands of righteous people and a righteous public.

And, secondly ….

We will seek friendship and goodwill with the nations of the world, but we do so with the understanding that it is the right of all nations to put their own interests first. We do not seek to impose our way of life on anyone, but rather to let it shine as an example. We will shine for everyone to follow.

Trump did also state,

There should be no fear. We are protected and we will always be protected. We will be protected by the great men and women of our military and law enforcement. And most importantly, we will be protected by God.

We are, and have been since the birth of this nation.  But, God will not protect a faithless nation very long.  The lessons in the Bible make this very clear.

Still, it is my prayer that God bless the United States, and God bless our president, he’ll need it.

More Fake News From CNN And LSM!!!!!!!

image

Holy crap these people are desperate!!!!

So, Trump’s pick to run the HHS is one Dr. Price, a US congressman is accused of insider trading!!!!!  Worse, it’s almost true!!!!!

Good grief, these people will never learn. 

So, CNN has learned that Dr. Price bought some stock of a bio-med company, and then, *GASP!!!* introduced legislation which could have helped the said company (Zimmer Biomet). 

CBS was happy to pile on, except, they let this little tidbit into their attack article …..

According to House records, Price, R-Georgia, bought between $1,000 to $15,000 worth of shares in the company Zimmer Biomet last March.

Disappointed smile

Oh, yeh, I can see it now …… he calls his broker and says, “I’m betting it all!!!!  We’ve got to buy all the stock we can of Zimmer Biomet!!!!  I’m going to get them a sweetheart of a deal from congress!!!!  No!!! Don’t worry!!!!  It’s passage is a lock!!!!  How much?  Well, like I said, let’s go big on this one!!!!  I’m thinking somewhere between $1,000 to $15,000!!!!!  Yeh, ALL IN!!!!!!”

The Devil’s in the details on this one.  Twitchy was able to shed some light on this ……

.@RepTomPrice has a Morgan Stanley brokered-directed stock portfolio. He is not personally engaged in trades made on his behalf. (2/x)

— Ellen L. Carmichael (@ellencarmichael) January 17, 2017

In March 2016, his broker rebalanced his portfolio and included the purchase of $2,697.74 Zimmer Biomet stock, among others. (3/x)

CNN says that @RepTomPrice introduced legislation after purchasing stock. This is demonstrably false. Work on this began in 2015! (5/x)

Purchase on his behalf occurred 3/17/16. Dear Colleague letter in opposition to CMS provision sent 9/21/15. CNN’s timeline is WRONG. (6/x) pic.twitter.com/uATaEpZug2

— Ellen L. Carmichael (@ellencarmichael) January 17, 2017

Yeh, the huge investment of $2697.74.  That, in and of itself is enough to know the whole story is entirely garbage and simply character assassination. 

The sad part of this is that there are congress critters who do enrich themselves in the manner CNN is attempting to cast Price as doing.  Given the left’s propensity for projection, I’d bet $2,697.74 that CNN knows more than one leftist congress critter who has engaged in such activity.  But, this garbage is ludicrous.

World Freaks Out As Trump Tells Obvious Truths!!!!!

image

Heh!  I love this stuff!

So, much of the world is having a panic attack because of some comments Trump made, again.  It’s a strange thing, this panic attack, because most of what he stated is incredibly obvious.  (one could have come to most of these conclusions if people had read some of my earlier Suyts writings). 

Is NATO obsolete?  Well, yes, of course it is.  It was created and designed to thwart the communist Soviet expansion into Western Europe.  Sure, some believe Russia still has designs on much of the old Soviet bloc, but, I’m not convinced they do.  But, even if they did, the nature and mission of NATO would be entirely different today, than its original design.  I find Merkel’s response, well, charitably, interesting. 

“We Europeans have our fate in our own hands,” Merkel told reporters in Berlin when asked about Trump’s criticisms, adding that she will work towards getting the EU to strengthen the economy and fight terrorism.

Ya think?  I’ve written this a few times, before, so I’m left with the impression someone on Trump’s team has read Suyts!  But, Trump hit the nail on the head, especially in the context of the EU/NATO.  Here’s part of his comments that people are freaked out about ……

“It’s obsolete, first because it was designed many, many years ago,” Trump said in the Bild version of the interview. “Secondly, countries aren’t paying what they should” and NATO “didn’t deal with terrorism.” The Times quoted Trump saying that only five NATO members are paying their fair share. ……..

Quoted in German by Bild from a conversation held in English, Trump predicted that Britain’s exit from the EU will be a success and portrayed the EU as an instrument of German domination designed with the purpose of beating the U.S. in international trade. For that reason, Trump said, he’s fairly indifferent to whether the EU stays together, according to Bild.

Yes, that was the purpose of the EU.  It was to be an economic bloc for the purpose of competing against the US.

I’ve long stated that much of Europe’s interests are shared with the US interests.  I generally put in the term as Western Civilization to include a few other countries around the world.  And, when common interests are threatened, and the acts of the threat are grave enough, and the weight of the interests are significant enough, then, and only then, does a military alliance make any sense. 

But, when a quasi-nation unites to compete with the US, it no longer makes sense that the US would fund the defense of the quasi-nation.  There’s nothing to freak out about.  The US spends hundreds of $billions a year on defense spending.  Want to compete economically?  Then, they have to kick in their fair share for the common defense.  Else it’s not competing, it’s sucking on the teats, benefiting from the free milk, while the American taxpayer/worker/consumer takes a high hard one up the …….. well, you get the imagery.

In the past, I’ve documented the EU’s attacks on American companies trying to do business in the EU, while their judgments benefited EU companies.  Now, this is fine.  The people of Europe have a perfect right to do so.  But, it cannot be that the unemployed or underemployed American worker is still obliged to pay for the defense of a land which just cost him a livelihood. 

Some other things Trump stated ……

With Merkel facing an unprecedented challenge from the anti-immigration Alternative for Germany as she seeks a fourth term this fall, Trump was asked whether he’d like to see her re-elected. He said he couldn’t say, adding that while he respects Merkel, who’s been in office for 11 years, he doesn’t know her and she has hurt Germany by letting “all these illegals” into the country.  ….   ….he reserved some of his most dismissive remarks for the EU and Merkel, whose open-border refugee policy he called a “catastrophic mistake.”

I think it is without question that Merkel’s decision to allow all of those refugees/invaders into Germany and the rest of Europe was a catastrophic mistake.  From the crime waves to the economic disasters which are occurring, to the political ramifications, it was a catastrophic mistake, unless, of course, you have the perspective of a Islamic jihadist, in which case, you may think this was pretty cool. 

Of course, there were some unintended consequences, which may turn out to be pretty cool ……

In contrast, Trump praised Britons for voting in 2016 to leave the EU. People and countries want their own identity and don’t want outsiders coming in to “destroy it,” he said. The U.K. is smart to leave the bloc because the EU “is basically a vehicle for Germany,” the Times quoted Trump as saying.

“If you ask me, more countries will leave,” he said.

Trump told the Times that he plans to quickly pursue a trade deal with the U.K. after taking office and will meet with British Prime Minister Theresa May soon.

Well, I think very soon a couple of important EU nations will have this very discussion, politically.  I believe the people of France and Italy are very seriously considering an EU exit.  The UK dashed the future plans of the EU, though, they weren’t entirely in the EU in that they never adopted the Euro.  However, both Italy and France have.  I believe if France goes, the whole thing ends.  I also believe this would be a very good thing for the people across Europe.  I don’t know if the majority of the people of Germany are ready to exit the EU, but, I believe there is a significant number of Germans ready and wanting to leave. 

I would also like to note the statement that Trump plans to “quickly pursue a trade deal with the UK” …… to contrast with Obama’s threat to put the Brits in the “back of the queue” for trade deals.  Turns out, Zero still doesn’t know WTF he’s babbling about. 

Trump stated a lot more than just these few examples, but, it’s great to have people freaking out about the statements.  It’s like someone just spoke some reality to people still believing in unicorns and pixie dust!

Feel Good Story Of The Day!!!! Obama, Clinton Loyalists Can’t Find Jobs!!!!!!!

image

This is a couple of days old, and I’ve been using it as a ‘pick-me-up’ type of thing.  When I see or read about something depressing, I just go back to this story and chuckle a bit.  Open-mouthed smile

I don’t’ have any commentary on this.  It’s just a feel good story! 

Obama, Clinton Loyalists Can’t Find Jobs

With Republicans now controlling both chambers of Congress and the executive branch, many Democrats are struggling to find work in a city now dominated by the GOP.

With President-elect Trump’s inauguration just around the corner, thousands of President Obama’s appointees and hundreds of Clinton campaign staffers are looking to enter the D.C. job market—where the demand couldn’t be any lower, according to a report in Politico.

The Trump tornado is tearing up post-election planning around the Beltway. It’s not just that those 4,000 administration jobs are no longer available to Hillary for America alumni, or that failed Senate candidates like Russ Feingold and Katie McGinty won’t be able to hire their staff on the Hill. There are also the lobbying firms, trade associations and corporate government affairs offices that are pitching senior Obama aides’ resumes into the round file while scrambling to hire operatives with Republican connections.

It’s insult to injury for a generation of young operatives who are still managing their shock and grief from Hillary Clinton’s loss. And for those who want to fight to keep President Barack Obama’s legacy from being erased, there aren’t a lot of places ready to pay them to do it.

“It feels like there are just thousands of us trying to find a job, and there are no jobs,” longtime Clinton aide Mira Patel told Politico.

According to Julian Ha, who leads the government affairs and trade association practice at the executive search firm Heidrick & Struggles, the demand for Republicans, especially those close to people being chosen for key roles in Trump’s administration, is much more “robust.”

“Clients are all pivoting, and they’re all frankly trying to figure it out just like we all are right now,” he told Politico.

The report notes that many Obama loyalists are faring better out West in Silicon Valley, but Clinton aides continue to struggle, with one progressive career guru commenting on their palpable anger, frustration, anxiety and burnout.

To help each other out, Democrats are hosting jobs fairs in the city, while executives at Google have organized an online resume bank for Clinton and Obama alumni, encouraging 100 other companies like Facebook and Netflix to draw from it, according to the Wall Street Journal.

But this shouldn’t come as the surprise it is to these folks—wave elections are an occupational hazard of working in the Beltway. More seasoned Democrats even tried to warn the younger generation.

“Never count on a Democratic administration,” Patel remembered being told, reports Politico. “I was like, ‘Oh, come on, this is gonna be great.’”

Awww …. the poor babes are now experiencing the misery they sowed to the rest of us people.  Awww ……

Boom!!!! Media Served Notice!!!!!! And, “Fake News” Isn’t Going Away!!!!

image

Never pick a fight with people who buy ink by the barrel. —Mark Twain

Well, that is conventional wisdom, however, it was the media who picked the fight.  And, now, they’re fighting someone with the bully pulpit.  This ought to me interesting.

For those who don’t know, BuzzFeed posted a report/memo, whatever.  It was supposedly an intelligence report.  It was full of entirely unsubstantiated garbage about Donald Trump.  News outlets such as CNN happily picked the stuff up and passed it along.  The narrative of the garbage has already been de-bunked. 

Essentially it said that Russia has been working on Trump to be an operative and had some horrible dirt on Trump.  It even named people and places and events ….. blah, blah, blah.  Sadly, no one bothered to check if any of the people and places and events ever actually happened.  Nope.  They didn’t.  One guy was suppose to be in Prague doing stuff at a particular time.  Instead of what was written in the memo, the guy was at USC with his son, and had never been to Prague. 

That was last night/this morning.  Today, Trump gave a press conference for the first time in quite a while.  There was a series of speakers before Trump gave his conference …..

White House press secretary Sean Spicer shredding CNN and BuzzFeed for their inaccurate reporting of fake news. Spicer said:

Before we start, I want to bring your attention to a few points on the report that was published in BuzzFeed last night. It’s frankly outrageous and highly irresponsible for a left-wing blog that was openly hostile to the president-elect’s campaign to drop highly salacious and flat-out false information ……..

Then …..

Spicer introduced Vice President-elect Mike Pence next, who also bashed the fake news from CNN and BuzzFeed. In his remarks, Pence said, “there’s been such a concerted effort by some in the mainstream media to delegitimize this election and to demean our incoming administration.”

Pence continued:

You know, I have long been a supporter of a free and independent press and I always will be. But with freedom comes responsibility. And the irresponsible decision of a few news organizations to run with a false and unsubstantiated report, ………

And, then Trump took the stage ….

It’s very familiar territory, news conferences, because we used to give them on an almost daily basis. I think we probably maybe won the nomination because of news conferences and it’s good to be with you. We stopped giving them because we were getting quite a bit of inaccurate news, …….

….. As far as Buzzfeed, which is a failing pile of garbage, writing it, I think they’re going to suffer the consequence. They already are. And as far as CNN going out of their way to build it up — ….

An exchange of sorts took place, as well …..

CNN’s Jim Acosta then tried to interrupt the president, still refusing to apologize for his organization’s fake news reporting, by saying: “Since you’re attacking us, can you give us a question?”

As Acosta said “Mr. Trump,” the president-elect turned to another media figure in the room to take a question from them.

“Go ahead,” Trump said to the reporter a few rows deep.

Acosta, defiant, wouldn’t let it go.

“Mr. President-elect, since you are attacking our news organization…” he said.

“Not you,” Trump put down Acosta.

“Can you give us a chance?” Acosta shouted back.

“Your organization is terrible,” Trump fired another shot back at Acosta.

“You are attacking our news organization, can you give us a chance to ask a question, sir? Sir, can you…” Acosta piped up yet again.

“Quiet,” Trump silenced Acosta once more.

As the other reporter proceeded with her question, Acosta wouldn’t relent.

“He’s asking a question, don’t be rude. Don’t be rude,” Trump scolded Acosta, asking the CNN representative to be civil.

“Can you give us a question since you’re attacking us? Can you give us a question?” Acosta shouted, refusing to be civil in the press conference.

“Don’t be rude. No, I’m not going to give you a question. I’m not going to give you a question,” Trump replied. “You are fake news.”

Trump proceeded to take his question from the journalist a few rows deep and went on with the press conference.

A couple questions later, Trump turned to Breitbart News to allow this reporter to ask a question.

This is fantastic, especially given the fact that the LSM had asked people to stop using the term “fake news” ….. heh!

You see, the conservatives took the term and flipped it back to the organizations which are in the fake news business, such as Buzzfeed and CNN.  Now, the LSM is regretting ever introducing the term “fake news”.   

So, how can a president win against such a hostile media?  Well, things have changed.  I remember Bush having a very hard time against a hostile media.  So much so, that he didn’t really fight back against any narrative.  Why?  Because no one was going to give him and his team any slack or tell their side.  Bush Sr. lost an election because of the hostile media. 

Today, though, things are a lot different, especially in light of the eight years of madness by the Obama administration.  There are a plethora of news organizations eager to have the attention of the president which are not openly hostile to the president.  Breitbart gets a question to ask, CNN does not.

Don’t get me wrong, the LSM will be seething from this.  And, I anticipate that the attacks from some will intensify.  But, if the new media performs properly, and does their job right, they’ll win.  That is to say, they can’t simply be fan-bois of the president.  They have to do real journalism, or they’ll only half win.  Breitbart will probably only half-win, but, they’re too obsessed with their rising numbers to notice.  Still there are other outlets and they will thrive, and grow and the LSM will continue to be less and less relevant. 

Or, the LSM can take the admonishment, and correct some of their more egregious behavior.  I think some will start trying to display some modicum of objectivity.  But, most cannot.  Mostly because the people they have working for them, from the lowliest to the most notable are too much vested in their ideology to even know how to pretend to being objective.  And, so, most will simply go the way of BuzzFeed and HuffPo.  Sure, they’ll still have their loyal readers, but, everyone will know they are not objective.  The NY Times, WaPo, CNN, CBS, NBC, etc …… well, they have a choice, and they were informed of their choice, today.

An Honest Question —– Why Is This Meme Attached To White Nationalists? And, More ……

image

So, what is it about this meme/pic that sends leftards into such a tizzy?  And, what White Nationalists use this …. and for what purposes?  Which nationalists?  Brits?  Americans?  French?  Do they all use it?  And, again, for what purposes?  Or, is it something akin to the “Fake News” meme where conservatives flipped the meme to expose the leftist media for intentionally misleading the public?

What does Pepe the Frog supposedly represent to the supposed “White Nationalists”. 

I emboldened “supposed White Nationalists”, because, well, this ……

image

I’ve read about “White Nationalists” ….. the connotation being that they’re akin to neo-Nazis or some such, but, it’s weird.  I live in the plains of the US.  I live in a small town in a rural area which is predominantly (overwhelmingly so) Caucasian.  I am both a moral and fiscal conservative.  While I can say for myself and many, many of the people around here, we are nationalists, insofar as we believe this nation and the people of this nation should come first and foremost in any political question.  We love our country and believe it takes precedence over any other nation.  We are also mostly White. 

However, as to the “White Nationalists” which seemingly align somewhere around the KKK and the neo-Nazis, I’ve never met one.  I’ve never heard of anyone around these parts knowing any.  Come to think of it, during my times as a traveler, I can’t say I’ve ever met one.  I did once, about 30 years ago, or so, see what looked like a cross on fire in a field about 1/2 mile off the road, one night. 

So, given the horribly bigoted ramblings of the ThinkProgress Sr. Editor, I’m starting to wonder if the “White Nationalists” who love the Pepe the Frog meme exist mostly in the minds of the leftarded lunatics such as our friend Ned, who wrote the idiocy above. 

Don’t get me wrong.  I know there are some real racist scumbags out there.  But, I don’t believe they are in near as great numbers as the left believes.  Indeed, the only active chapter of the KKK which I am aware of is the small group of lunatics operating in Cali.    

This idiot, Ned, seems to believe if you have any connection with the South, you have a high chance of being a really bad guy who wants to do mean things to a Jewish guy …… or something.  But, these are the same people who believe Breitbart is a Jew hating website.  I’ve never read a more pro-Israel news site than Breitbart.  So, the question remains, do these people exist mostly in the minds of the leftards?

This Season’s Top Meme As We Watch The NFL Post Season —- Open Thread!!!!

image

 

Well, I’m watching football …… sort of, the Dolphins didn’t perform very well today.  But, I had this funny meme and thought I’d share.

It occurs to me that Dallas may have drawn the short stick by winning home-field advantage during the playoffs.  They’re going to play the winner of the G.B./N.Y. game.  Being a Dallas fan, I’d much rather face either Seattle or Atlanta.  Rogers is on fire and NY beat Dallas twice.  Oh well, it’s the path that makes success so much more meaningful.

Don Lemon Doesn’t Think Kidnapping and Torture Is Evil, While WaPo Considers This A Convergence Of “Trump Narratives”

image

I don’t typically spend too much time on events such as this, and, I won’t on this one, but, perhaps I should.

By now, most people remotely aware of current events know about the horrid kidnapping and torture of a disabled White guy by four Black young adults. 

It’s difficult to understand the depths of depravity some supposed humans can sink to.  But, once you understand there are some people out there who really shouldn’t be classified as human, then, you can understand all you need to understand.

I suppose because the young animals shouted “F— Trump”, one couldn’t escape the natural knee-jerk reaction of the leftist media politicizing it. 

Seriously, Lemon said he doesn’t think it’s “evil”.  You can watch the video here.  It’s worth watching because one of his guests, after doing the obligatory denouncing of the actions, immediately went about politicizing the incident.  WaPo obliged us with this headline ……

Washington Post Verified account @washingtonpost

Pro-Trump narratives converge in one awful attack streamed on Facebook

Personally, I blame leftism and our leftist media.  This is the classic response you will get when indoctrinated by their madness. 

First, and foremost, the leftist media de-humanizes anyone opposed to leftism.  Just look at the wild caricatures the left paints of people on the right.  This is why all those hoax hate crimes were so evidently hoaxed.  No one on the right threatens to light someone on fire if they don’t take off their head scarfs.  But, the people indoctrinated by the leftarded bs believed the caricatures, so they thought they could get away with a sort of “false flag” attempt. 

Essentially, the 4 youths of the video infamy have heard nothing but, ‘F— whitey’ for their entire lives.  And, clearly, we have people in the media more than happy to even blame the White guy for this event.  Is anyone surprised this happened when you’ve raised children to hate certain types of people?  From what little I’ve heard from the video, the youth’s simply paraphrased and mimicked the leftist media. 

No, this isn’t to excuse these vermin.  They are one of the reasons why I fully believe we should re-introduce corporal punishment to our legal system.  Simple lengthy prison terms are not sufficient.  I would say they should be taught this sort of action is vile and evil, but, I think if they’re this vile at this age, they’re not going to learn any other way than experiencing it themselves. 

But, why didn’t they know this was evil already?

This brings me to my second point.  And, all that I need to say is “leftism” is why they don’t already know.

I could go from point to point, but, I’ll just lay out a few examples and the readers can chime in more if they wish.  Ardent leftism tells us there is no God.  It tells us there are no absolutes in right and wrong.  We have near fully institutionalize these concepts so much as to bastardize our very Constitution to remove any references to morality or belief in God in ….. well …. all of our institutions.  We’ve taken it all out of our schools and text books, and attack the few moral institutions we have left in our nation.  The left relishes and celebrates single parent families and rewards them.  They fully approve, condone, and encourage strangers raising our children, (as long as they don’t teach morality while they are raising our children.)

Now, here’s something to ponder.  These idiots thought it was okay to live-stream this barbarism on FB and that’s how they got caught.  I know, for fact, that even worse acts of barbarism in a similar vein have occurred.  How many more have happened that weren’t live-streamed on FB?

Phishing Or Hacked? And Election Fallout!!!

image

Well, here’s a You.Gov poll recently released.  (pdf)   By all means, scroll through it.  Most of it is mundane stuff, in which the responses are entirely predictable. 

Now,  typically on polls, I’d pick through and highlight the dishonesty as to how it was represented or how the questions were skewed to get a desired response.  And, yes, this poll is no exception.  But, some of this stuff leaves me scratching my head.  But, we’re still talking about the election and stuff, so, I’ll focus on that. 

One of the big issues Trump was elected on was the promise to repeal Zerocare.  The left wailed about this and are still wailing and gnashing their teeth and whatnot.  “Think about the poor people!!!!!”, they said.  Care to venture why so many of the working poor lined up with that rich guy?

Yes, in only the income category of $100k or more do the majority believe it was either a success or neutral.  What part did they not get about people being tired of elitist leftards telling us what is and isn’t good for us?  BTW, look at the representation distribution on that part. 

And, then, there’s the latest, or most reoccurring idiocy of fake news …… the “hacking of the election”. 

Now, as to how the DNC and other were accessed, I’m not sure, but, a huge source of emails which may have swayed some of the election was from John Podesta’s email account.  He victimized himself from a phishing expedition.  Now, some people will say there’s no distinction between phishing and hacking.  I disagree.  In my view, a hack is when someone forcibly intrudes into someone else’ computer.  Phishing is only successful if the compromised person gives access or information for access to some other party.  There’s a difference, and there lies many IT careers in gulf between.  Now, after reading a couple of other sites, I tend to agree that there should be another category between phishing and hacking victims, that is to what happened with Hillary’s home-brew idiocy.  If Yahoo’s email system is more secure than what you’ve had set up, then, that’s a special sort of stupid which can hardly be categorized. 

Now, for many, probably tens of millions if not into the hundred million, the above paragraph is a moot discussion, because they, themselves are a special sort of stupid.

I mean, other than the fact that no one has even alleged this, and the Dim president even got up and said there’s absolutely no indication this may have happened, we have 52% of the Dims believing this absolutely happened or probably happened.  Now, sure, the fake news site, CNN, is having a go with a play on words, “election hacking”, but, …….. well, we see how many inform themselves with simply reading headlines. 

Well, sure, the poor leftards had other things to do at the moment, like going to find some safe space to hug it out or play with playdough or Crayons, and whatnot, so, there’s that reason to not investigate beyond the headlines with something so important as the integrity of our elections.

But, let’s put this in a nutshell, for some poor soul who may not understand what happened.

I have seen absolutely zero proof the Russian government was involved in the compromised emails.  None, whatsoever.  In a couple of cases, apparently, whoever got the emails used code developed in Russia for said purposes.  However, the code is available on line, so it could have been anyone from anywhere for any purpose.

Regardless of who did it and why, what happened is that someone found themselves in possession of emails which demonstrated the way the upper echelon in the Dim party and Clinton campaign conducted business.  All that the phishers, hackers, or whatever did was to inform the American public about the on-goings of these people.  —–  And, it looked horrible. 

Now, there are a few, too damned few, but a few people on the left who wish to hold the people exposed accountable for their misdeeds, lies, and whatnot.  But, for the most part, rather than confront the contents of the emails, the left would rather scream about the source of the email release.  I find this rather odd.  I wonder what the reaction of the rank-and-file Repubs would have if a release of emails would show similar misconduct in the upper echelon of the Repub party and team Trump?  My guess is we’d have a 3rd party tomorrow. 

The problem with the people exposed is that they thought they’d never have their emails public.  This brings a pertinent quote or two to mind.

The measure of a man’s real character is what he would do if he knew he never would be found out. ~Thomas Babington Macaulay

Character is doing the right thing when nobody’s looking. There are too many people who think that the only thing that’s right is to get by, and the only thing that’s wrong is to get caught. ~J.C. Watts

Further, when considering our friends on the left, I can’t help but think of this quote.  It explains much of their actions and advocacy …….

I hate mankind, for I think myself one of the best of them, and I know how bad I am. ~Joseph Baretti, quoted by James Boswell, 1766 (commonly misattributed to Samuel Johnson)

Last Regular Season NFL Picks!!!!

Well, it’s a full day of NFL football!  I didn’t pick last week because so many games were not played on Sunday.  This week, all the games are played on Sunday!  Unfortunately, because it’s the last week of the regular season, many of the games don’t hold any meaning to the teams playing.  How do you pick games which hold no real meaning?

(8-7-0) Ravens  Case in point.  Doesn’t matter if the Ravens win or lose, they’re not making the post season.  Same for the Bengals.  I’m picking the Ravens ……

(5-9-1) Bengals

 

(9-6-0) Texans  The Texans have clinched the division title, regardless of the outcome of this game. 

(8-7-0) Titans

 

(6-9-0) Panthers

(8-7-0) Buccaneers  The Buccs are still technically in the playoff hunt ……. sort of.  Here’s what has to happen for them to get there ….. The Bucs could miraculously earn a wild-card spot with a win + WAS tie + DET win + TEN win + IND win + DAL win + SF win.

Still I’m picking the Buccs.

 

(1-14-0) Browns

(10-5-0) Steelers  If the Browns manage to lose, they’ll have the #1 pick sown up!!!!

 

(13-2-0) Cowboys  I guess I’ll pick the Boys in this meaningless game.  Dallas has home field advantage throughout, regardless of anything.  Were I the coach I would ensure Romo gets some playing time.

(6-9-0) Eagles

 

(7-8-0) Bills  No Ryans on the sidelines for this game ….. weird.

(4-11-0) Jets

 

(3-12-0) Bears

(7-8-0) Vikings  That was an epic collapse this season for the Vikes!

 

(3-12-0) Jaguars

(7-8-0) Colts  It’s reported that the game will be played without any defenses taking the field.

 

(13-2-0) Patriots  Well, I want my Dolphins to win this one, but, the playoff home field is at stake here.  The Dolphins are rolling with a backup QB, but, they do have Ajayi. 

(10-5-0) Dolphins

 

(11-4-0) Chiefs  If the Chiefs win, and the Raiders lose, the Chiefs can win the division and a first round bye.

(5-10-0) Chargers

 

(6-8-1) Cardinals  A most talented team which failed to make a serious playoff run. 

(4-11-0) Rams

 

(12-3-0) Raiders  I don’t know how to pick this one.  The game doesn’t mean anything for the Broncos, except they really don’t like the Raiders.  The Raiders are without their young star QB …… the Raiders can clinch the division and first round bye with a win. 

(8-7-0) Broncos

 

(10-5-0) Giants

(8-6-1) Redskins  The Redskins will secure the final NFC Wild Card spot with a win — if Green Bay-Detroit doesn’t end in a tie.  The game doesn’t mean much for the Giants.  So, I’m going with the Redskins.

 

(9-5-1) Seahawks  The Seahawks need this game to get in playoff form.  They can get a 1st round bye with a win and a Falcons loss.

(2-13-0) 49ers

 

(7-8-0) Saints

(10-5-0) Falcons  See above comment. 

 

Well, those are my picks.  What do you think?

Uhmm, apparently left out this huge game!

(9-6-0) Packers This game is all playoff implications!  The victor wins the NFC North. The loser could miss the playoffs if the Washington Redskins win earlier in the day. Both teams make the playoffs with a tie.  Of course, if the Redskins lose, then, they both would probably make it.  While the Lions play better at home, they’re simply struggling of late, and the Packers are red hot. 

(9-6-0) Lions
