It’s really has gotten this bad.
from the American Spectator:
Had Donald Trump given the Gettysburg Address, liberals would have called it insultingly brief. No matter how eloquently and sensibly he speaks, they stand ready to snipe at him. No sooner had he finished his stellar remarks in Poland than they grabbed for their wet blankets.
Yes, he criticized Russia; yes, he defended NATO. But why, they wanted to know, didn’t he attack his hosts? Or as the New York Times put it: “Mr. Trump roused his Polish hosts by recounting the country’s history of resistance to invaders, including Nazi Germany and the Soviet Union. But he said nothing about the right-wing government’s crackdown on judges and journalists and its refusal to accept more migrants, policies that have upset European Union leaders. He instead praised Poland as a defender of liberty in the face of existential threats.”
Both Obama and Trump have made exclamations regarding initiatives important to them. However, one’s words were of no account and the other, the exact opposite.
Trump’s order is a travel ban. No it’s not. Trump’s order is a Muslim ban. No it’s not. Yes it. It definitely is a travel ban. Trump said so.
This sounds exactly like what Obama said about his signature healthcare bill some eight years ago. It’s a penalty. No it’s not. It’s a tax. No it’s not. It’s definitely not a tax. Obama said so.
The Court didn’t take Obama’s words into account back then, when the supreme Court ruled it was not a penalty, as Obama insisted, but a tax.

Since I have a day job, I was not afforded the opportunity to sit and view fired FBI Director James Comey’s public testimony on the Hill yesterday.
I would not have anyway, figuring it would a nothing-burger. I was right. From what I can glean, Comey didn’t offer any further enlightenment or bombshells. It seems to be just a rehashing of his written statement, and everything that has trickled out over the past several months.
Basically that he was a scared girly-man, afraid of big bad President Trump. Maybe he thought one of his private meeting would result in the President body-slamming him ala Greg Gianforte.
From what I understand, he was so concerned about the lack of the President’s character, that he felt the need to run out of his meetings with Trump and type a detailed recollection of every word that was said on a laptop in his car. No doubt he has an eidetic memory, so no one should question the word-for-word accuracy of his accounting. And oddly enough, I don’t think anyone did. I also don’t think anyone asked if the memo (s) he leaked to a reporter were his, or more likely, the property of the FBI, typed on an FBI laptop, in an FBI vehicle. I think we would have heard that exchange, which is why I don’t believe he was asked.
Still, as I did not have a chance to view Comey’s testimony, nor will I, I left the after-action analysis to Kayleigh Mcenany of The Hill.com
from Katie Hopkins:
At this difficult time, Britain is faced with some hard questions the people charged with protecting us are going to have to answer sooner or later.
The Manchester suicide bomber Salman Abedi was known to the authorities.
He is believed to have travelled to the Middle East and become radicalised before returning to the UK to cause carnage at a gig in the city where he was born just days later.
As his father and brother were arrested in Libya, security force sources there said the father had links to Al Qaeda and another source claimed the brother ‘was aware of all the details’ of attack plans.
Yet he was allowed to walk back to the UK unchallenged.
I’m not usually the protesting type, nor do I get sucked into dopey hashtag campaigns, but I’m considering making an exception.
I’ve already aired my grievance to ABC directly, but I may also join the #BoycottABC campaign, for the cancellation by ABC of its second highest rated sitcom, Last Man Standing.
from The Daily Mail:
ABC is facing calls from angry conservatives on social media to boycott the television network on Monday after it was learned that a popular sitcom starring right-leaning actor Tim Allen was canceled.
The hashtag #BoycottABC was trending on Twitter Monday in response to the network’s decision not to renew Last Man Standing for a seventh season, even though it is one of ABC’s most highly rated shows.
Last Man Standing is a comedy that tells the story of the main protagonist, Mike Baxter, played by Allen.
Baxter is ‘the quintessential man’s man’ known for his old-fashioned views.
A devout Christian and outspoken political conservative who supported Donald Trump, Baxter works at a sporting good retailer, Outdoor Man, which sells guns, jerky, and camouflage recliners, according to Google.
The New York Times must have been compelled to report on the conviction of one of their own, former U.S. Congresswoman Corrine Brown, but did their best to never mention that she is a Democrat. They can’t wait to announce when Republicans go up the river, but hid the fact that Brown was a liberal hack Dem.
It was decided long ago that a former President will receive a pension. If this is the case, it should not be tied to whether or not they choose to cash in after they leave office. It should not be political.
In Venezuela, protesters have taken to throwing anything they can when clashing with police. They’ve design a new weapon – called the poopootov cocktail.
Shut It Down: Republicans Chicken Out Yet Again
This big spending sellout is what Trump voters voted for?
from The American Spectator:
There was a reason that FDR opposed the unionization of public sector workers. Rather than the natural negotiation tension between a company owner and an employee in which the owner is trying to conserve his capital while the employee across the table tries to get as much as he can, when a politician or bureaucrat is negotiating with a public sector union, they’re both on the same side of the table, spending taxpayers’ money, usually without a taxpayer representative anywhere nearby. It’s a recipe for fiscal disaster and perhaps national economic suicide.
The same is true, as proved this weekend, when Republicans and Democrats, having colluded to put off legislation needed to “keep the government open” until the waning days of existing federal spending authority, crafted a “deal” in which taxpayers are utterly betrayed. Government by emergency is never good for the taxpayer, and this emergency was, as so many are, a product of bipartisan conspiracy.
from The Resurgent:
There is a fundamental problem with Tomi Lahren that no one likes to talk about. For those of you who do not know, Lahren is
the proudly unread, unnaturally blonde young thang who had a show on The Blaze until she self-immolated on national television in a moment of opportunism that blew up in her face.
But here’s the thing. Just how bad is Tomi Lahren, despite the little cult of personality she has tried to create? She’s this bad: in a show that runs for one hour, people only know about the last two minutes of her show when she gives some scripted monologue.
That’s a real problem. There’s a whole 38 other minutes and she cannot hold it. Somehow she thinks she is entitled to it. She fits every single stereotype of bratty, entitled millennials out there. And, before she deleted them, her tweets from her college days further prove it.
from Thomas Sowell:
Many people seem shocked at the recent savagery of a mob of students at Middlebury College, who rioted to prevent Charles Murray from addressing a student group who had invited him to speak. They also inflicted injuries requiring hospitalization on a woman from the faculty who was with him.
Where have all these shocked people been all these years? What happened at Middlebury College has been happening for decades, all across the country, from Berkeley to Harvard. Moreover, even critics of the Middlebury College rioters betray some of the same irresponsible mindset as that of the young rioters.
