21st Century Commie-Nazi Street Clash?

(Image by Tom Stiglich)

Yesterday, a free speech rally was cut short by counter protesters, just one week after the deadly clash between protesters and counter-protesters in Charlottesville, VA.

Charlottesville dominated the news throughout last week.

I haven't been able to delve into the story too deeply, so many (all?) of you probably know more about what happened than I do.

What I did notice though, was that the media, Democrats and even some Republicans are squawking about what Our Grand Nagus said or didn't say in his attempt to condemn the violence.

Also the Democrats and their media allies are trying to pin the entire blame on the right-winger protesters.  (The Five discussed the media's impact on Charlottesville).

Well, if two opposing groups show up decked out as 300 wannabees, things won't end well.

The Diplomad didn't beat around the bush:  "...if you live in a Western country and you go around waving Nazi or Communist flags, or espousing Nazi or Communist ideology, you are a Moron..."

And Mark Steyn returned to one of his recurring themes:  Less speech leads to more violence.

A couple of friends remarked these clashes reminded them of the riots between the Communists and Nazis in the days of the Weimar Republic.

Whatever the similarities are, the non-FOX News media has already chosen one side.

Slowdown at Station WTFO

(Image found on Facebook)

This past week has been a long and intense one at the agency where I work.  And things are likely to stay this way for the foreseeable future.

I also have a growing list of domestic projects I need to do, along with gaming projects I want to do.

But the news cycle, both fake and real, continues on.

There's a lot going on within our country...

...and beyond our borders...

...that I'd love to post about at length.

Unfortunately, I no longer have the time to read in-depth about current events, let alone add my two cents to the subjects at hand in a coherent manner.

What I'm hoping I can do is post at least once a week.  I know I've often done this in the past due to my rotating work schedule, or going on vacations.  But this slowdown will more the norm than the exception.

I'm thinking of something along the lines of a Top Story of the Week, or Weekly Roundup of news, along with applicable, attributed political cartoons.  Or both, if I can manage it.

Either way, I'm not planning on signing off the air anytime soon.  Just needing to slow down the transmission rate.

Thank you for staying tuned to Station WTFO.

Prager U Video: The War On Cars



Before you go off  on that Sunday drive:  Check out this video of Lauren Fix explaining why Big Government, Environmentalists and Leftists in-general hate cars.  (Although they love virtue-signalling by driving electric cars, even though they're not as green as they're claimed to be).

A few weeks ago, my wife started in a new position within her company.  Unlike her old position, where she spent most of her time working from home, her new job requires her to commute to work.

She actually researched the bus and train routes between our house and work to see if taking mass transit would be better than driving, often in heavy traffic.

As it turned out, taking the bus would double her commute time.  On my own drives to work, I'd see poor souls standing in all kinds of weather by nothing more than a street sign indicating a bus stop.

For this post I even did my own investigating:  Taking the bus to work would take four times as long--and only during the times the buses were running.

Sorry lefties (well, not really) mass transit isn't for us.

So enjoy your drive--and your freedom!

Meanwhile, In Maduroland...

(Image by Lisa Benson)
We've all been preoccupied--or made to be preoccupied--by Our Grand Nagus' "Russian Connections."

Yesterday I posted how the leftist dreamy-eyed view of Canada is a "mirage."

Meanwhile, a nightmarish socialist experiment has been going south, south of the border.

Venezuela is being devoured by socialism.

One of my friends posted this great comment about the media's disinterest in the disintegration of yet another Workers' Paradise:

This is a story that doesn't get near enough attention: that all the chaos and violence and oppression going on in Venezuela is the result of a full-bore implementation of leftist policies.  I notice the media never delves into the root causes of everything down there - they just gloss over it and focus on the current disastrous situation with no explanation for how it got this way. 

At least most of the members of The Five aren't glossing over things as they discussed the consequences of socialism.

But it's not just the media that love to fawn over socialism, even while, pretending to have "never heard of Venezuela".  Lefty Democrats wax poetic about the joys of so-called social justice democracy. 

The problem is:  Democrats don't actually believe in Democracy.

Most of us like-minded folks feared that if Hillary were elected, the US would eventually (soon?) follow Venezuela into anarchy.

Hillary's Hill-arious New Book Title

(Image by Bob Gorrell)

Last week, it was announced that our would-be Corrupt Queen's new book will be hitting the shelves next month.

New or not, Hillary's expected to regurgitate the same themes--everyone & everything else is to blame for her 2016 Presidential Election loss, but herself.

If you're in need of a laugh, here's Gutfeld & Co reacting to the announcement.

Matt Vespa discusses why the title of Hillary's book is very fitting--and goes on to explain why she truly lost the election--so you don't have to fork over any money for it.

Sayonara Scaramucci

(Image by Steve Kelley)

I'm a day late in posting this week.

Or should I say, less timely than usual.

There was a 10-hour internet outage in our neighborhood the other day, so I couldn't do any of my on-line spamming work.

Anyway, the best opening line about the latest White House shake-up came from an online friend who said:

Someone fell out of the clown car...

Since the "circus will be in town" for another four years at least, the NYT has a more detailed story of Anthony Scaramucci being sheista-canned.

This guy's ten-day tenure went by in such a flash, I never got to see any of his briefing antics that everyone is now talking about in past-tense.

Laura Ingraham rolled-in on White House needing message discipline.  Otherwise, we'll see more revolving-door staffing.

Maybe I'm making too light of an apparent administration in disarray.

But to be honest, I find the revolving door appointments & firings to be hilariously entertaining.

Especially after eight years of Barry O's rule by Imperial Decree (a.k.a. Executive Order).  During the Era of HopeandChange, when one of Barry's minions was embroiled in a scandal, they'd Plead the Fifth and then walk away, suffering no consequences.  Lather, rinse, repeat.

Besides, I'm not surprised by all this especially when Our Grand Nagus' pre-presidential catch phrase was:

You're fired.

Despite my amusement, I don't think I'd want to be the White House Director of Communications...

Leftists Triggered by Trump's Transgender Tweets

(Image by Mike Lester)

Well, a few days ago Our Drunk Dialer in-Chief triggered leftists nation-wide when he tweeted that the US government would not "...accept or allow...Transgender individuals to serve in any capacity in the U.S. military."

 And as usual with Trump's tweets, the rest of his administration is trying to catch up.  In this case, the Joint Chiefs of Staff said there'll be no changes on transgender policy until the White House issues guidance.

The Great White North's Ministry of Defense responded that they'll promote the recruitment of transgender troops.

No word yet from any of the Muslim countries on whether or not they'll allow transgender individuals to join their respective military forces.

Now before I continue on, I'd like to state that I have a shred of insight on Gender Dysphoria (formerly known as Gender Identity Disorder).  I was raised by a high-strung and high maintenance mother; while later in my first marriage, I discovered that my first ex wife hated being a woman.  She was convinced God specifically cursed her to toil-out her days here on earth as a woman.

So I know what it's like to live in close quarters with someone who despises the gender they were born as.  This was actually the least of my issues with her.

Throughout my upbringing, and Hell-on-Earth first marriage, along with my depressing second marriage I've spent most of my life imagining I was someplace else, with someone else, and even being someone else. Which probably explains, in part, my interest in speculative fiction, wargames, roleplaying games and dressing up as action-adventure heroes during comic book conventions.

As a retired military member though, I would never think of overturning our military norms and traditions to cater to whatever my identity crisis flights of fancy took me.  I view Sex Reassignment Surgery as an extensive form of cosmetic surgery that allows one to LARP through life.

The U.S. military has one job, and one job only:  To wage war against our nation's enemies.  Or as my military buddies and I like to say--to kill bad guys and break their toys.

It shouldn't be a test-bed for leftists social engineering experiments.

Try that on our professional and Olympic sports teams first, and see how that turns out, before you send our men and women into harms way.

I'm not the only one who thinks this way.  According to a Rasmussen poll conducted last month, 23% thought having transgenders in the military was a good idea, while it was nearly divided between "bad" and "no impact."

I could ramble on about this, but I'll let Gavin McInnes do it--in drag even.

And finally I'll leave it to this wounded warrior, referenced in Gavin's video, who explained Trump's transgender ban in one incredible Tweet thread.

Mark Steyn Video: Wasserman Schultz Scandal Is Media's Russian Dream




On Monday, a story broke that the Ministry of Truth has ignored:  Debbie Wasserman Schultz's aide was arrested trying to flee the country.

In addition to the above FOX News video, Mark Steyn wrote extensively about this flight and fancy.

He also did a stint on FOX & Friends.

Meanwhile, the RussiaRussiaRussia "SQUIRREL!" hunt continues...

Tragedy for Illegal Immigrants in Texas

(Image by Steve Breen)
One of the reasons why I'm against illegal  immigration is because more often than not, migrants fall victims to human predators.

Earlier this week, 10 migrants died in a mobile Black Hole of Calcutta en-route to San Antonio, TX. 

Normally, I hate politicizing tragedies, but I'm all in favor of the call to shut down sanctuary cities.

The Dems Dumb Slogan

(Image by Steve Kelley)
Last week, in an attempt to stop their election hemorrhaging, the Democrats trotted out a new slogan.

Which underwhelmed everyone--even their BFFs (Best Friends Forever) at MSNBC.

Let's hope the Donkey Drove continues to under-perform--and the Pachyderm Parade gets it's act together.
