In the Strongest Terms Possible

 

In case of rhetorical emergency, break glass and use the following:

“Today the whole world witnessed [insert bad thing here], and on behalf of [insert your department/organization/government here] we are here to condemn [insert action here or person] in the strongest terms possible.

As the race for the 2020 Presidential election heats up, it is our solemn duty to help highlight Comrade Sanders’ commitment to Marxism as he makes appearances for his campaign. I propose that we organize a network of local chapters of The People’s Army Choir. The function of each local chapter would be to attend […]

Listening the the Sunday talk shows today (its a sort of penance my wife and I perform), I am more convinced than ever that Nicky Haley and Sara Huckabee Sanders are two of Trumps best selections for office. They are solid and articulate and don’t take any (COC) More

Fire and Ice Bernie Sanders and Donald Trump couldn’t be more different, yet they have much in common. Both ran for the nomination of parties in which they are not real members. Both men recognized better than 20 competitors the brazen corruption of elites in Washington DC, Silicon Valley, Hollywood, and the coastal metropoles that […]

DNC Admits Rigging Primary, GOP Flops on Spending, Trump’s Maybes

 

Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America get a kick out of the Democratic National Committee arguing in court that it can’t be sued for fraud because everyone knew the 2016 nomination process was rigged. They also grumble at Republicans for giving the Democrats virtually everything they wanted on the latest spending bill. And they express frustration with the media for running breathless headlines every time Pres. Trump says he’s considering something, but they also wonder what other things they could get Trump to publicly mull over.

Slashing Government, Sanders’ Misguided Compassion, Gabbard’s Mystery Mission

 

In the final podcast of the Obama presidency, Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America cheer Donald Trump’s goal of aggressively reducing the size of government but acknowledge it will not be easy. They also react to Bernie Sanders saying America is not compassionate because our government does not do as much for people as more liberal governments do. And they scratch their heads as Rep. Tulsi Gabbard embarks on a mysterious trip to Syria.

Fierce Dem Infighting, Trump & NATO, Inaugural Ball Attack Caught By O’Keefe

 

Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America get the popcorn ready as the Hillary and Sanders Democrats feud over the future of the party. They also rip the media for overblowing Donald Trump’s statement on NATO being obsolete but also scold Trump for stoking some of the confusion. And they unload on the radical leftists Project Veritas caught trying to ruin an inaugural ball with stink bombs and triggering the sprinklers.

A poll taken in mid-September found that just 53% of Bernie Sanders supporters planned to vote for Hillary Clinton. This figure was down from a month before. The same poll found that 15% of the same group planned to vote for Donald Trump, up from 5% the month before. I wondered, for the last couple […]

We’ve all heard the apocryphal story of the government breaking your leg and then providing free medical care to set the break, all the while saying “see all we’ve done for you?” With the Republican nominee now having joined the Democratic nominee, as well as the socialist wacko she defeated in the primaries, in calling […]

As I am sure that all of you heard, President Obama endorsed Clinton to be the next President. But I just wonder why does it feel like when it was reported through different media outlets that it was supposed to be a surprise or something? It’s politics as usual. I mean: did anyone really think that he […]

In the past, and perhaps still now, some folks thought that, maybe, perhaps, Trump was a Clinton plant – a candidate so unlikely, and so aligned with Her Majesty that it couldn’t be a coincidence. I know I had thoughts along these lines, way back. But upon thinking on it, it really seems like the […]

Nothing highlights the absurdity of this election better than holding a mirror up to the Democratic Party’s own fault lines, for in them we see should also see ourselves. So take heart at this thought. On Facebook today, the musician Moby put up a post imploring the Dems to put aside their differences as Hildabeast […]

California Chaos?

 

ChaosWhile I haven’t listened to Rush in years (Limbaugh, not the holy triumvirate), I am wondering how many may participate in one of his political calls to arms: Operation Chaos.

California’s Republican Party doesn’t make it easy to vote Republican if you are “non-partisan” (CA’s version of “Independent”). The state GOP seems to be protecting themselves from lefties participating in disruptive voting as you cannot vote in the current Republican primary unless you are registered as a GOP voter, meaning you can only vote for the GOP slate. The California Democrats however welcome both Democrats and Independents which means Bernie has a stronger likelihood of winning as he has done in other “open-primary” states.

With Hillary’s growing negatives, will Democrats feel they must nominate someone else to avoid a massive defeat? In the past few days Hillary’s negatives have exceeded Trump’s, and Trump now leads in the latest poll. (I had expected this to happen, but not till late June or July; and to be fair, Trump has likely gotten […]

As part of another project, I’ve compiled county-level socio-economic data for the American West (the 12 mainland states on or westward of the Rocky Mountain line). This includes things like employment levels, per capita income sources, ethnic mix and religious affiliation, derived from the US Census, Bureau of Economic Affairs, and the Association of Religion […]

Trump’s support is from a loud, obnoxious and generally unthinking minority of about one-third of those claiming to be Republicans.The other two-thirds don’t like Trump, don’t want Trump and generally, I suspect, detest Trump as an ignorant, lying, con-man. Why do the Trump fans support him when it is clear Trump would lose big in […]
