With the stark inevitability of a Biden/Harris presidency staring us in the face (barring a legal miracle), I can’t get the Dylan song out of my head – or more precisely, the title of the song.  Yes, it’s morose and reeks of defeat, and sure, the song is about a love affair gone wrong, not […]

On Tuesday we’re going to get down to cases in America.  Everything is on the line.  And everything that you think is normal right now, today, could be fading or gone very shortly.  The Democrat Party, transmogrified into what amounts to “communism lite,” insanely wants to destroy everything that has made America great: the Founding […]

As human beings we are all aware of the fact that different people live in different “realities” and believe in different “truths.”  Like the political right and left, for instance.  Their respective realities and truths exist in such stark opposition to each other that it is literally impossible for both of them to be simultaneously […]

“Trump Speed” Week in Review

 

American voters face a choice, not an echo, and need to act accordingly in this election season. As the Democratic National Convention rolls out in some form this week, measure Democrat supporters’ claims against President Trump’s accomplishments. Start with just last week. The Trump administration moved with purpose all week, taking both domestic and international actions that matter. Consider this daily summary of the past week’s events [emphasis, bracketed comments, and links added]. Bear in mind, President Trump had his brother Robert on his heart all week, as Robert was in hospital “having a tough time.” Sadly, the week ended with President Trump saying farewell in person to his beloved younger brother, but that did not stop the president announcing a defense agreement with Poland, to the consternation of Russia and their Democrat true friends. Robert Trump died on August 15, 2020:

It is with heavy heart I share that my wonderful brother, Robert, peacefully passed away tonight. He was not just my brother, he was my best friend. He will be greatly missed, but we will meet again. His memory will live on in my heart forever. Robert, I love you. Rest in peace.

Instead of canceling people and institutions on seemingly random and arbitrary bases, I propose a single set of actions to resolve both “canceling” of those responsible for “institutional racism” and providing reparations to its supposed victims. [This is applicable only in the United States.] The most prominent common factor in “institutional racism” in the United […]

George Floyd, George Floyd, George Floyd, George Floyd, George Floyd, George Floyd, George Floyd, George Floyd! The name seems to be reverberating all over the planet as leftists everywhere engage in one gigantic, unified primal scream over the incalculable loss to humanity. Is there anything else on earth that matters (now that we’ve forgotten Covid)? […]

For me, being a Republican means identifying with the notion of rugged individualism. That although it is true that governance is necessary, as after all, citizens do need stop signs, fire districts, and to maintain an army, it is equally true that as citizens we require and demand  the  right to live and  breathe freely. […]

Washington State Voters Double Down on Democrat Destruction

 

May I add my disgust at the results of Tuesday’s election. I am ashamed to be a resident of the state where the voters vote themselves higher taxes, boondoggle projects that waste their dollars (choo-choo train that 1 percent of the population will ride), essentially disarm their police (after I 940 passes with 60 percent support, police will be regulated to death and almost have to ask the criminal’s permission to respond with deadly force — the initiative curbs police violence!); disarm themselves with gun regulations (I 1639 adds more onerous regulation of legal firearms owned by law-abiding citizens, thus reducing every citizen’s ability to defend himself from the increasing crime, especially in cities); and make all the more certain that more ineffective social programs are coming.

The voters of WA sent an abortion-supporting Pediatrician (!) to Congress, turning Blue a district that has been Red for many years; voted down their loudest voice in the State House against the predations of un-Sound Transit (I wish Mark Harmsworth much luck and prosperity in the rest of his life, and mourn that I do not live in his district), and sent even more D’s to the state legislature. [And the Board of un-Sound Transit is about to give the Capo di Tutti Capi a big raise — on my dime]. I always knew my own district was a lost cause (the ass with the perpetual sneer who is not my “representative” in Congress received 72 percent of the vote) and the entire state is even a bigger lost cause now. Of the ten WA congressional districts, seven are now represented by Democrats.

There’s been a lot of reflection in 2018 about the year 1968, a half century past.  Generally regarded as one of the most disquieting years in American history, there were assassinations, urban race riots, the ongoing and controversial war in Viet Nam, all the campus protests and unrest, the Democratic National Convention which descended into […]

The Democrat party is now in total control of the state of Washington.  One of the new laws they are proudest of starts in 2019. ABORTION INSURANCE COVERAGE: A measure that would require Washington insurers offering maternity care to also cover elective abortions and contraception also awaits Inslee’s signature. In addition to linking abortion coverage […]

Democrats: Hello, I Must Be Going!

 

The government shutdown is the greatest thing that happened since yesterday. It will shut down some minute part of the federal government of no importance. But we all pretend it’s serious and we have to show how moral we are and how terrible are our adversaries. It’s just that most of us aren’t crazy. Rep. Steny Hoyer, the pride of Maryland, former Democrat Majority Leader, and current Minority Whip, had this to say: “I believe we should stay here and do our work, so I motion to adjourn!”

America at its worst divide since the Civil War? Not exactly, says Hoover senior fellow Morris Fiorina, the author of Unstable Majorities: Polarization, Party Sorting, and Political Stalemate. Fiorina contends that voters haven’t abandoned the center but that the two major parties have, the result being continued experimentation with the political order in Washington. Will 2018 see a continuation of the third great stretch of instability in national politics?

Representative Ro Khanna, a California Democrat from Silicon Valley and vice chair of the Congressional Progressive Caucus, discusses the feasibility of re-creating the technology economy in other parts of the United States. Is there room for working with the Trump administration, or are his fellow Democrats preoccupied by Russia and impeachment talk?

What Is This Democrat Aides “Hacking” Story?

 

I didn’t realize that this story about “Congressional I/T Staffers” getting in trouble for “hacking” — I use that over-used word very loosely — was an unknown here on Ricochet. I should have known though, since the MSM has been burying it since day one. Even Fox News only did a couple stories online about it. It popped up the first week of February, although the investigation started last year. Being in I/T for a couple decades myself, any political story dealing with computers always catches my eye. For instance, I was deeply involved in Tweeting out information relating to the #DNCLeaks fiasco, a year ago last week; it remains the best time I ever had on Twitter.

There was a small-information story that hit sites like Politico and BuzzFeed that started like this:

I was driving home and flipping through the radio last week and I heard some guys talking about how the Democrats are struggling to find new “leadership” after Hillary’s loss. My mind began to wander as I thought about what they really meant. I realized they weren’t talking about leadership, they were talking about likability! […]

Tomorrow Donald J. Trump will take his place in U.S. history as our nation’s 45th President. The moment of transition of power from the former president to the new president is one of awe and privilege. There are no purple fingers to hold up. Each citizen voted of their own free will for the candidate […]

So would the US Democrat Party be illegal in France? As I saw a highlights of President Obama’s farewell speech there was a section where he called his own statements about a “post-racial America” “unrealistic” (during his first presidential race). He talked about how we’re not where we need to be as a country on […]
