The Lingering Lamentations of the Left

(Image by Dana Summers)
FOX News' Hannity provided some highlights of the on-going meltdowns of leftist about Trump, but assured his audience: Ladies, your uteruses will be fine.

Michael Moore is calling for more public tantrums and the disruption of Trump's inauguration.

Madonna, who's campaign claimed women betrayed their sisterhood.  

No matter what kind of president Our Boorish Billionaire will be, the lamentations by leftists will be a part of the daily noise for the next four years.

The key arguement made by leftists is that Hillary won the popular vote.

True.  However, Matt Vespa provided a friendly reminder of why Hillary lost.

Not only did Hillary lose, but as Matt mentioned in his article, Democrats running in state and local elections went down in defeat.

What we witnessed last month was just one facet of the collapse of the political left.

I'd like to see this trend continue, but I'm almost certain that the GOP (here in America) will figure out a way to blow their current advantage.

Honoring the 75th Anniversary of the Attack on Pearl Harbor

(Image by Steve Breen)

Early in my military career I had the honor of visiting the USS Arizona Memorial.

Near the end of my active duty days, I had the opportunity to go to Japan for an exercise.  Afterwards, I was fortunate enough to take a tour of Nagasaki, and stood at ground zero.

In a sense, I could say my military career took me to the places where America entered World War II--and where we ended it.

Barry O Worst Pres of All?

(Image by Henry Payne)
There's still 25 days left in 2016.

However, this hasn't stopped John Hawkins from compiling an early Top 5 List on why Obama will be viewed as one of the worst president's of all time.

There's certainly a lot more than five reasons why "Barry O" was bad.  One of them was his selection of Secretary of State, the Corrupt Queen Clinton, who was nearly foisted upon us as his successor.

Barry O's Legacy has left our country--and the world at large--in a mess; which may be difficult, if not impossible to clean up.

But as long as Green Party Candidate, Jill Stein's, recount effort remains stalled; thanks to getting nixed in Pennsylvania and being challenged by Michigan's AG), then we can at least be thankful Hillary won't be a the Helm of State starting next year.

Maybe bars and restaurants will actually tune their televisions to FOX News for the next four years to ensure Clinton doesn't attempt another comeback...

Breitbart's Kerfluffle with Kellogg's

(Image from:  The People's Cube)

Five days ago, Kellogg's announced it was pulling their ads from Breitbart, because the conservative website was incompatible with the company's values.

After some initial swipes at a couple of Castro fans, Mark Steyn points out why Kellogg's decisions isn't such a gr-r-r-r-reat idea in the long run

A day later, our Canadian-born commentator pointed out that Kellogg's original values weren't so gr-r-r-r-reat either

Conservative consumers are fighting back:  Kellogg's Facebook pages erupted with "#DumpKellogg's" messages.

Personally, I don't eat cereal on a regular basis, and we still have several boxes of Kellogg's products in our pantry.  I'm not going to throw out what we already have, and won't openly call upon you readers to boycott the company.

But the next time I do buy cereal, I'll certainly look for similar products concocted by companies who don't pander to Social Justice Whiners (SJWs).

Watch: Gutfeld--Fox News to Blame for Clinton's Defeat?

According to Our Dear Leader, it's FOX News' fault the Corrupt Queen won't be coronated.

In a corresponding video, Neil Cavuto nails it, by reminding Obama:  FOX didn't win an election, you lost it.

About the same time Obama was blaming FOX, Trump's campaign manager, Kellyanne Conway clashed with her Clintonian counterparts at the Havard Post-Election Forum.

The spark that ignited the fiery debate:  Flinging down the race card.

Clinton's cronies may just was well have called us like-minded folks "deplorable."

Even after the election, they haven't realized they've over-played their hand.

Miss Conway deftly explained why Clinton's campaign failed on Hannity, without the shout-downs from the surly opposition.

Violence, Then Silence at Ohio U

(Image by Henry Payne)
Earlier this week, Ohio State University (OSU)was under a lock-down because of an active shooter situation. 

As it turned out, the active shooter wasn't a gunman at all, but still injured 9 people by attempting to run over them with his car and then went on a short-lived stabbing spree. (Now it's been reported that 11 people were injured).

The only gunman was the university police officer who shot and killed the suspect, who turned out to be Abul Razak Ali Artan.

Before the facts were fully known leftists raised the hue & cry about gun control.  The chief culprit was our almost-VP, Tim Kaine who jumped the gun pushing for gun control.

Since the late and unlamented Artan didn't use a firearm in his one-man jihad, the story lost traction.

As with previous terrorist attacks, we're told police will be delving into Artan's "don't-say-I'm-violent-or-I'll-kill-you" motives. 

Investigators will save a lot of time if they'd check out ISIS's response to Artan's attack.

No matter what the jihadists say, or the manner in which they launch their attacks, leftists will somehow figure it's all our fault.

Tacoma Police Officer Killed in the Line of Duty

In the wee hours of the morning, one of Tacoma's finest, Reginald Gutierrez was killed while making a welfare check.  The suspect, who held two children hostage was shot and killed by a Pierce CO Sheriff's SWAT member.

Euphemistic Eulogies for Croaked Castro

Castro's dead, but leftist media outlets still honoring him and his debacle.

"Debacle" is putting it mildly.  Castro's Cuba was a slice of Hell-on-Earth.

Ben Shapiro asks:  Why does the Left go easy on dictators?  Only vermin should mourn the loss of their own...

(Image by Glenn McCoy)

...which, now that I think of it, says something about leftist media mouthpieces.

Jonah Goldberg observes:  Even in death, Castro still has "useful idiots," who sing his praises, rather than condemn him to the Ash Heap of History where he, and his foul regime belong.

Cal Thomas points out the Left has had a love affair with Castro for almost as long as he's been in power.

These useful idiots and their minions are enemies of language.  

One of the biggest is The Great White North's Baby-Faced Commie Apologist.  

There's much more South of the Border.  Katie Pavlich wrote a Top 5 Most Outrageous Responses to Castro's Death.

I have a lot of respect for Miss Pavlich, but personally I would have put Our Dear Leader at #1, and the Great White North's Baby-Faced Commie at #2.

I mean saying Croaked Castro "...altered the course of individual lives, families and the Cuban nation..." along with calling him Cuba's "...longest serving president..." are the ultimate euphemisms the Western Hemisphere's most brutal--and longest serving--dictator.

While Croaked Castro's fawning fans mourn El Comandante's departure to the Great Comintern in the Sky, Cuban-Americans were celebrating like Munchkins over the demise of the Wicked Witch of the East.  Which as Humberto Fontova points out, for about 600,000 good reasons.

Breaking News: Castro Kicked the Bucket

(Image by A.F. Branco)

As I was about to head to the gym this morning, I came across Yahoo News mournful headline:

End of an Era in Cuba as Revolutionary Fidel Castro Dies.

Well it's about freakin' time!

For some reason I remember this political cartoon, penned back in Slick Willy's presidency...

(Image found on:  EMaze)
...and I'm doubly glad it won't be his consort, the Corrupt Queen, who will be delivering any eulogies as our next president.

And speaking of presidents, past, present and future:

Both Obama and Trump made immediate announcements:  Trump slams brutal dictator Fidel Castro, while Obama takes a softer approach
For the record, I like Trump's slam better.

In local news, the People's Democratic Republic of Seattle's propaganda paper, the Seattle Times, had this glowing headline:

Fidel Castro, Who Defied US for 50 Year, Dies at 90 in Cuba.

The Diplomad was far less charitable, hoping the dead dictator rots in Hell (RIH).

Since it's still the Thanksgiving Weekend, Fidel's final departure is something else we can all be thankful for.  Too bad he didn't die earlier, like in 1959.

Wishful thinking aside, I suppose Castro's grizzled image will now be added with Che Guevara's...

...among the Commie Pantheon worshiped by t-shirt wearing lefty college students, and poster-brandishing leftist protesters.

Have a Squabble-Free Thanksgiving

(Image by Clay Jones)

Usually, I just post a happy greeting with a pleasant image on any given holiday.

However, emotions are still running high--mostly from leftists--over the presidential election.

Apparently, some leftists are so upset over Clinton's loss, they're nuking Turkey Day plans with pro-Trump family members.

Since Seattle is Washington State's blue bastion, many local leftists say their relationships have changed since Trump's election.

Wow. I'm shocked and appalled by this.  I've never seen such post-election hostility--once again mostly from leftists--in my life.

Susan Stamper Brown suggests not to let the election ruin Thanksgiving, and think of all the things you have to be grateful for.

Brittany Hughes of MRCTV  has similar advice:  Take a break from hating each other and be thankful.

Best wishes to all of you this Thanksgiving.

The Hamilton Hypocrisy

(Image by Henry Payne)
Leave it to leftists to suck all the fun out of our leisure activities.

Dystopic calls out the Social Justice Whiners (SJWs) for the Marxist intellectual posers (or poseurs) they are.

Proper spelling though doesn't stop the fun-sucking.

A few days ago VP-Elect Pence took his daughter to see the play Hamilton on Broadway.  Instead of being able to enjoy the performance in peace, he got booed by the audience and then lectured by the cast.
(Image by Gary Varvel)
Pence reacted to the whole affair with greater aplomb than Gary Varvel's cartoon implies.

I'm more irked about this than outraged.  The cast, crew and audience certainly do have the right to speak their minds--even to an impending VP, which is one of the cool things that make America so great.

However, this incident illustrates urban elites just don't get it.

Nor was this past weekend's fun-sucking limited to Broadway.  The American Music Awards (AMA) show featured a hostess mocking Melania Trump.

Is America's First Super Model Lady above criticism, or even mockery?

Maybe, maybe not.  It depends on what the First Lady's done, or not done.

I've written several posts criticizing  Michelle Obama; while in the pre-Internet Era, I verbally slammed just about everything then-First Lady Hillary did and said.

Melania may be next.

(Image by Ben Garrison)
The point is:  I wouldn't want to attend a play, watch a show, or play a game and then be force-fed some political-social discourse that I'm trying to escape from. 

(Image by Nate Beeler)
If I wanted that, I'd watch/read more news, or worse--write more blog posts.

Greg Gutfeld put it best: Hamilton stars violated the terms of service.

Mark Steyn touches on today's political-social tribalism, along with the lethal variety that exists outside the Ramparts of Civilization in his Going Ape Over the Monkey article.

In any case, Kurt Schlichter advises us to brace ourselves for four years of non-stop freakoutrage.

Humor may be our best weapon against the SJWs, like this People's Cube post about Our Soon To Be Ex Dear Leader pardoning the Hamilton cast for cultural appropriation.
