Highlighting Leftist Hypocrisy

(Image by Henry Payne)
There's a lot going on in the US and beyond our borders, which I'm still watching and reading about.

So for now, since leftists have been perpetuating the narrative that the GOP provoked last week's shooting, then I'll perpetuate highlighting their hypocrisy.

I've been observing the liberal media's double standard since the end of the Carter Administration.  I'm sure it's been operating on two-tracks long before that.

Now the double standard has reached weapons-grade proportions.

We can predict with near-certainty what the leftist media reaction would be if a Trump supporter shot a Democratic congressman.

MSNBC hostess, Joy Reid (among others) politicized Scalise's shooting even as the congressman is still in recovery.

And of course, the leftists' collective default position to actual shootings is always--blame law-abiding firearms owners, but they'll consider their own assassination fantasies to be "brave" and "edgy."

Resetting Bad to Good, Back to Bad Again

(Image by Glenn McCoy)
Remember back in Dubya's Days in the White House how leftists ranted over the Texan Cowboys' many bad policies and decisions.  (Oh there were some to be sure).

Then in 08 Our Dear Leader Obama was elected, and almost overnight leftists were okay with whatever policies of Dubya's Barry O decided to maintain.

Now Our Grand Nagus is dictating hateful programs from Trump Tower the White House.  Take the "Muslim Ban," for instance:  Barry O sanctioned the same nations Trump has, but no one in the Supreme Court banged their gavel over it.

Leftist politicians and media types continue banging their own gavel's over Trump's "Russian Connection."

However, they overlook when the Russian ambassador visited Obama at the White House 22 times.

Switching from good to bad opinions about the same policies by different presidents requires a lot of mental flexibility...

The Day the Swamp Stood Still?

(Image by Robert Ariail)
I thought I'd end this week on a humorous note, especially one that pays homage to the classic sci-fi movie The Day the Earth Stood Still, coupled with Our Drunk-Dialer-in-Chief's (in)famous covfefe comment.

America's Political/Social Divide

(Image by Steve Kelley)
A couple days ago, gunman James Hodgkinson, opened fire on the GOP's baseball practice.  House Majority Whip, Steve Scalise, along with three others were wounded in the attack.

In the wake of the shooting, there's a plethora of op-eds advocating gun control (from the left of course), along with denouncing "violent rhetoric" (oddly from the right, but primarily used to rub leftists' collective noses in their hypocrisy, along with anti-Trump hysteria).

Leftists often do accuse conservatives of being inherently violent, because of small number of fringe losers.  However, it appears leftists themselves are the ones who are seduced en-masse by violence (SteynPost #17 video).

Under such a hostile political-social divide that seems to widen after any and every attack, VDH asks:  Can a divided America survive?

Abraham Lincoln didn't think so.

Trump Pardox Pandemonium

(Image found on Political Cartoons)
As I'm writing this, AG Sessions is getting grilled before Congress, in order to find Trump guilty of--being Trump--I guess.

I'll read through the "Cliff Notes" commentaries once the dust settles for this round of The Russian Connection Theatre.

In the meantime, VDH wrote a thoughtful article about the endless ironies of Donald Trump.

Basically, its not just Blue Staters and Deep Staters that are feeling the blues about the Our Grand Nagus' presidency...

Comey Chameleon's Congressional Confession

(Image by Lisa Benson)
I've made no pretense about being unbiased, or to borrow FOX News' byline: Fair and Balanced.

So when it comes to Our Grand Nagus' supposed Manchurian Candidacy, my bar is set very low for three reasons:

1. Trump's "Russian Connections" doesn't equal the scope of Obama's "Parade of Phony Scandals."
2. Ditto for two-time-loser-presidential candidate Hillary.
3. Which, in turn, makes me glad we're not living under a Hillary Presidency.

Comrade Karla responded to an on-line friend concerned with the erosion of trust the "Russian Investigation" is causing with a trifecta observation of his own:

Some of this is new territory because for the first time there's constant exposure to what is going on "in the White House."  In the past there has always been a filter.   It's different because we have (1) Trump's constant tweeting, (2) leakers inside the bureaucracy, if not the WH and (3) a deranged media establishment.  It's a perfect storm. 

Because the storm winds are still being whipped-up by the deranged media, every news agency was glued to Comey Chameleon's (Karma Chameleon) testimony before Congress.

Since I'm playing catch-up with last week's news, here's some "Cliff Notes" from some of my favorite commentators:

John Hawkings provides seven take-aways from Comey's hearing.

The Diplomad called the hearing a serving of Nothingburger with fries.  (Or maybe fishbones and chips as the led photo suggests).

Mark Steyn only wanted to make a couple points on the Comeytose State, but got on a roll and ended up making six.

Kurt Schlichter called the political theater From Russia With Stupidity.

Even before the curtain rose on last week's performance, my mind was already set before Derek Hunter made his assessment:  Comey deserved to be fired.

Despite the former g-man's poor performance, there's still news headlines of the "Russian Investigation" still chugging along.

Meanwhile, as the deranged media and deranged Democrats continue chasing their collective tails, one deep state leaker, Reality Winner, was caught and denied bail.

Seattle's Sharia-Collaborating Sheeple

While I'm still catching-up on Comey's Congressional performance, I thought I'd write a quick piece on some local news that caught my eye.

 Yesterday, Seattle was the scene of competing protests.

The Seattle Times crowed about how the "Seattle Stands With Our Muslims Neighbors" outnumbered the "March Against Sharia."

Well good for them.

The article pointed out that Sharia is not the law of the land here in the US.

True.

But Sharia isn't the official law in any of the nations in western Europe either.

And look at the havoc our jihadist enemies have wrought across the pond.

Last week, on the Anniversary of D-Day, Pat Buchanan asked if we're in a Forever War?

Until we as a society can confidently identify our enemies then the short answer will be "yes."

To help recognize the jihadists and their wannabees among us, Andrew McCarthy pointed out that the problem in London [and elsewhere, I'd add] is not "Islamic Extremism."

That is, a disturbing--and far greater number--of Muslims would favor the implementation of Sharia Law without going on a one-way jihadi killing spree.

What always astounds me is how leftists consider those of us who want to bar the gates from the Islamist barbarians to be the enemy of civilization.

Not "Getting Use To It"

(Image by Jerry Holbert)
Today, Her Majesty's subjects will be at the polls electing a new prime minister, or re-electing the current one.

The latest terror attacks in the UK don't seem to have affected the pre-election polls.

If so, it's just another sign of Brits "getting use" to their new normal.

But not everyone got the Royal One Love Memo.

The three jihadists who knifed their way across London Bridge were delayed at a pub by a Millwall soccer fan, who stood his ground, shouted "Fuck you, I'm Millwall," which allowed the other pub goers to escape.

There needs to be more "fuck yous" in response to terrorist attacks and less "one loves."

FOX News Video: Steyn--We're Not Being Honest About the Nature of the Enemy



Mark Steyn nails it in this video.  For years, during Obama's Era of Hope & Change, government officials and the non-FOX News media have avoided tying the words "Muslim" with "extremist."

But to be fair, even during Dubya's Cowboy Diplomacy Era, words were often softened to deflect the wrath of the PC Commissars.

While vapid celebrities, like Katy Perry, blather-on about always choosing love, Kellyanne Conway showed she's made of sterner stuff by defending Our Grand Nagus' travel ban and declaring terror cannot be the new normal.

Finally, Gutfeld got it right by saying it's time to take out the trash.

Trump Eclipses Paris Climate Accord

(Image by Glenn McCoy)
Last week while I was writing about terrorism and celebrity pity parties, Our Grand Nagus withdrew from the Paris Climate Agreement.

I agree with Eric Erickson's assessment, that pulling out of the agreement was the right decision.  That is:  It's not a Senate-ratified treaty, it would adversely affect the American economy, and really not do anything to combat climate change, as Bjorn Lomborg explained in this Prager U video.
Greg Gutfeld called it the world's worst lotto ticket.

Then there's wealthy leftist hypocrisy.  They're demanding us serfs cut back on our lifestyles, while retain their mansions, private jets and SUVs.

Of course, leftists have lost their collective minds over this; along with every other "crimes against humanity" Our Climate Change Denier-in-Chief has committed since the election.

Hell, even before the election.

Jihadists Attack Pedestrians on London Bridge

(Image from:  NPR's report of the terrorist attack on London Bridge)

On the evening before Ariana Grande's One Love Manchester Concert, three jihadists who weren't interested in reading the One Love Memo, mowed down and killed seven people on London Bridge. Forty-eight people were injured in the attack.

London police launched raids shortly afterwards and arrested a dozen suspects.

Meanwhile, back on this side of the pond Our Grand Nagus criticized political correctness and made the case for his travel ban.

This of course put some leftists in a tail spin.  At least two celebrities posted unhelpful tweets--along being careful not to use the phrase "Islamic jihad."

I'm with The Diplomad on this:  I'm sick of terrorist attacks' tiresome trajectory.

Mark Steyn noted that a lot more than London Bridge is falling down.

Instead of being told to "get use" to the frequent carnage...

(Image from:  Orc Memes)

...western leaders should at least employ one simple solution:  Stop importing terrorism.

Mark's Commonwealth bud, Nigel Farage demanded:  We don't want words on terror, we want action.

A Tale of Two Pity Parties

(Image by:  A.F. Branco)

This week, we've seen two women whining about their fall from grace.

Or more precisely--their graceless fall.

First, there was the Woman Who Would Be Queen, Hillary Clinton, whining about the NYT's coverage of her "nothing burger" e-mail scandal and how her own DNC screwed her over.

The good news is, Democrats are starting to break ranks and say GET OVER IT.  Even left-of-Left Al Franken said "...we do have to move on."

Of course, it's because they want to win upcoming elections, and Hillary's blame-gaming is becoming a millstone around the DNC's collective neck.

But hey.  Sometimes self-interest can be a good thing.

Even hosts on non-FOX News stations are mocking her.

And then there's Kathy Guillotine Griffin.

Apparently, Griffin didn't want to be upstaged by Hillary, so she hosted a pity party press conference of her own.

Griffin's griping that Our Grand Nagus--and his family of Lesser Naguses--are trying to ruin her life forever.

Nah.  She managed that all on her own and deserves her comeuppance.

Even Lefty-Left Al realized political discretion was the better part of social justice valor and suggested it would be best if Griffin didn't participate in his upcoming book event.

Griffin's career is certainly ballooning-up--just not in the way she intended.
(Image by Henry Payne)
Since both women seem to be suffering from Humble Pie Intolerance, we'll probably continue to weeping and wailing from the Whining Duet for some time.

Guillotine Griffin's Photo Faux Pas

(Image by Lisa Benson)
Earlier this week, Kathy Griffin ignited a firestorm of outrage across the political spectrum with her faux decapitation of Our Grand Nagus photo stunt.

Within 24 hours, Guillotine Griffin found herself severed from CNN

There's plenty of "WTF?" responses from news and entertainment sites.  However, while it may be delightful to indulge in a lenghty, schadenfreude-fueled post, I'll leave off with just these key articles:

First, the Bad News.  Griffin's gaffe represents the Left's visceral hatred of Trump and us Deplorables.

But the Good News is--leftists are freaking out, because everything they try makes them look stupider.

Video: SteynPost #16--The Rituals of Post-Terror Management



In this video, Mark Steyn discusses what I call the "tiresome trajectory" of post-terrorist attack response throughout the western world.

While in a follow-up article, he focuses on the ruin of England in the aftermath of the Manchester Bombing.

Chucking Confederate Monuments Down the Memory Hole

(Image by Robert Ariail)
Mark Steyn often says that unless the culture changes, elections won't really matter.

One glaring example of this:  Donald Trump's 2016 Election victory hasn't stopped New Orleans' purge of confederate monuments.

And the Big Easy isn't the only local chucking it's history down the Memory Hole.

Even when items deemed offensive by today's snowflakes are tucked away in a museum, they're not safe from the wrath of the Social Justice Whiners (SJWs).  Just ask the folks at the Nash Farm Battlefield Museum.

The bulldozing of monuments is a war against American History.

Matt Walsh warns:  Now that Confederate monuments have been torn down, SJWs will go for the Founding Fathers next.

(Image by A.F. Branco)
Regardless, media loves the Big Easy's mayor who's still fighting the Civil War

But why settle for fueling national, or presidential ambitions like Hizzoner Landrieu appears to be doing?

If SJWs and their media cheerleaders are so Hell-bent on eradicating the "monuments to slavery," there's plenty of work for them to do worldwide...

The Grand Nagus to NATO: You're Slackers!

(Image by Steve Breen)
Last week the leftist media outlets were agog over Trump--again.

Our Boorish Billionaire President's foreign faux pas was seen as "pushing NATO around."

But to us non-nuanced folks, like Katie Pavlich, it was priceless to see NATO members looking less than thrilled at Our Grand Nagus calling them out for slacking on defense spending.

And Jonah Goldberg defended Trump for calling terrorists evil losers.

(Image by Mike Lester)
Overall, Michael Barone thought Trump acted like a competent, conventional president abroad (and should start acting like one here at home).

The Deep State Sowing Disorder

(Image by:  A.F. Branco)
Despite the recent bombing in Manchester, leftist elites have "...learned nothing and forgotten nothing."

Learned Nothing:  They refuse to acknowledge that our jihadist enemies are Hell-bent on seeing non-Muslims killed, or subjugated.

Forgotten Nothing:  They still hate Trump for winning the 2016 Election.

A couple days ago the Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals refused to reinstate Trump's travel moratorium.

Mark Steyn called this Executive Branch intrusion a case of When Judges Legislate and Legislator Judge.

What these Social Justice Whining Justices have yet to learn is they're useful fools to the Islamo-facists, both inside and outside the Crumbling Ramparts of Civilization.

The Swamp Strikes Back

(Image by Ben Garrison)
Ever since Our Grand Nagus took office, we've been subjected to daily headlines from "anonymous sources" within the Deep State of Trump's supposed nefarious deeds.

Simply conceding to the appointment of a special prosecutor to investigate The Russian Connection is a win for the deep state.

Some dare to call the anti-Trump feeding frenzy a "coup" attempt.

While Our Grand Nagus was on his first grand overseas tour, Our Deep Stater-in-Chief--also traveling abroad--declared "...we can't hide behind a wall."

Said the man surrounded by Secret Service agents 24/7.

Whatever one wants to call the Deep Staters' and their collaborators' anti-Trump sentiment, the attacks on Trump are a 24/7 operation--even when a jihadist suicide bomber slaughters girls at a rock concert.

Video: Media So Trump-Deranged, It Ignores Manchester Aftermath






I guess it wasn't my FOX News-biased imagination that CNN was spending more time on Our Grand Nagus' supposed Russian Connection than the Manchester Bombing.

Massacre in Manchester

(Image of some of the casualties from The Sun)

Yesterday was a warm sunny day here in western Washington State.  So I took advantage of the dry weather and a day off to get our house ready for summer--cleaning the grill and the lawn furniture.

Across the pond, Salman Abedi the Asshole had other summer plans--self-detonating at the Ariana Grande concert in Manchester, UK.

There's plenty of information on the who, what & when of the attack on most news sites. (Although, this morning I noticed CNN spent more time discussing Our Grand Nagus' supposed Russian Connection).  Even The Seattle Times ran the story.

Britain raised Terror Threat Level to "critical."

In addition to predictably raising the threat level, this latest terrorist attack is--yet again--following the same tiresome trajectory.

We're being told we should get use to scenes like this:

(Image from:  The Guardian chiding us not to "lash out")
Or that something other than Islamic jihad is to blame--like sexism.

Meanwhile, leftists are attempting to ward off Islamic evil with their Candlelight Magic--again.

I'm with Todd Starnes on this:  I'm sick of news anchors telling us not to rush to judgement on terror attacks.

Of course, Abedi the Asshole was yet another "known wolf."

This is just one factor in what The Diplomad calls The No Surprise List.

And finally, for this initial post anyway, Mark Steyn continues with the social condemnation of the weak-willed West in his latest article:  "Dangerous Woman" Meets Dangerous Man.

Unless our limp leaders, and the snowflake sheeple truly stand up against the jihadi threat, we'll continue to endure scenes like this...

(Image from:  The Sun's article on doctors trying to save the lives of victims--including children)

...along with the predictable post-attack procedure...

(Image from:  Starecat.com, which I originally saw on The Declination)

...whether we're "use to it" or not.

Robert Spencer's Drink Spiked

(Image found on Robert Spencer's Facebook page)

A couple days ago, word got out that Robert Spencer, creator of Jihad Watch, and author of several anti-jihadist books, was poisoned after giving a speech in Reykjavik, Iceland.

Here's what happened in his own words.

Mark Steyn continually points out that leftists and jihadists are "...in the 'shut up' business..."  and merely two points on the same continuum.  Now these points have moved closer together.

And not a peep of this from the non-FOX News media.

Ever since I started blogging about current events, I've provided a link to Jihad Watch.  I own three of Robert's books, and I plan on buying more.  All of which I hope to get autographed some day.

I wish Robert a quick and complete recovery, along with congratulating him on keeping up the good work.

The Deep State Strikes Back (Again)

(Image by Gary Varvel)
Yesterday, while I was composing a complaint about Cultural Appropriation, news was unfolding that:

TRUMP REVEALED HIGHLY CLASSIFIED INFORMATION TO THE RUSSIANS!!!

The media feeding frenzy exploded as the NYT and WAPO posted the stories.

These along with the other non-FOX News agencies are the same ones who insisted that Hillary Clinton's Secret Server, and her Pay-For-Play Program in the Clinton Money Laundering Foundation were fake news--and helped the Corrupt Queen get within 74 electoral votes of the Oval Office.

National Security Advisor, H.R. McMaster, who was at the meeting, said Our Grand Nagus did not compromise sources or methods to the visiting Russians.

But as Fred Flietz points out--who leaked the story to the WAPO is the real scandal.

(Image by Lisa Benson)
Laura Ingraham believes someone burrowed in the intel community wants to hurt Trump.

More like a group of somebodies.

Sean Hannity said there are five major forces are aligned to take down Trump.  (Note:  Sean spends a lot of time in this video discussing the mysterious murder of DNC staffer Seth Rich, but I'm going to hold-off on writing about this until more evidence becomes available).


But none of this matters to the Democrats, who are already making early calls for Trump's impeachment.  To them, it's always...

(Image from:  Memegenerator.net)
Yeah, now we know how Jan Brady felt.

Or as The Diplomad calls it:  The Attack Continues--Russia, Part 397.

Parts 398, 399, etc. so on and so forth, will soon follow I'm sure.

Apoplexy Over "Cultural Appropriation"

(Image found on Imgur)
As a writer, I'm suppose to be able to imagine myself as other people in order to tell a story.  But concocting characters outside my Caucasian, heterosexual experience could be seen as "Cultural Appropriation" by Social Justice Whiners (SJWs).

Two Canadian writers have been "appropriated out of their jobs" for running afoul of SJWs.

So-called Cultural Appropriation is just one weapon in the left's arsenal to politicize everything (video).

Hmm.  Keeping everyone within their own ethnic boundaries?

Sound a lot like...

Since I'm not of direct Irish descent, I thought I'd appropriate this meme for an end-of-post laugh...

The Comey Conundrum Continued

(Image by Lisa Benson)
Other than a brief pause for Mother's Day, the momentum of last week's news about canning Comey carried over the weekend.

Apparently, there may be some Comey Tapes.

Until such tapes come to light, I'm not going to get all riled over this.

Could Our Grand Nagus have handled Comey's firing better?

Sure.

But the sore losing left still aren't taking things so calmly.

Greg Gutfeld highlighted the firing fallout, and then how the media lost it when Comey got canned.

Michelle Malkin pointed out the hyporcisy of the left.

Despite all the outrage, Derek Hunter illustrated how Trump's opponents are his greatest asset.

And here's a final recommendation by Kurt Schlichter:  Liberals are an inferno of flaming crazy and we should pour gasoline on the fire.

Tunnel Collapse at the Hanford Site

(Image from:  KOIN 6
A few days ago, a tunnel collapsed at the Hanford Nuclear Site.  Fortunately, there was no radiation release.

The accident occurred during the day shift hours where I work at Washington State Emergency Management.  I was on night shift at the time and came on duty several hours after the event.  Thankfully, the situation was winding down. 

Now it's a matter of getting to the site of the collapse and repairing the damage.  Our agency will continue to monitor the situation until the "all clear" is given.

Note:  I intended to post this earlier, but I was busy at work, and I wanted to write about the "Comey Catastrophe" during my short off-duty time while it was still front-page news.

The Canned Comey Conundrum

(Image by Steve Breen.  Although the golf metaphor would seem more appropriate with Obama)

The airwaves, cyberspace and even social media are still aflame over Comey getting canned by Our Grand Nagus.

So there's plenty of news stations and sites to follow the on-going melodrama.

I'll just--ahem--take it from the top commentators I enjoy reading.

First, The Diplomad deduces in his Comey Goes article that the "questionable timing" leftists are lamenting about is irrelevant.  No matter when Trump decided to give Comey the pink-slip would be cause for outrage.

Next, Mark Steyn doesn't mince words in his Posse Comey Tantrum article about the now-former director's missteps.  But now that he's suddenly a darling of the Democrats, not following the rule-of-law is irrelevant compared to their newfound concern for Comey.

And speaking of the Donkey Drove:  A lot of them called for Comey's resignation.

In case you're wondering, here's a Top 10 List of Times Democrats Called For Comey to be Fired.

I guess leftists are mad that Comey was fired by President Trump, instead of President Obama--or President Hillary Clinton.

Comey Canned

(Image from:  Hope n' Change Cartoons)
Well for the past day now, the airwaves and cyberspace are abuzz with the news that Our Grand Nagus finally fired FBI Director, James Comey.

I thought America's #1 G-man lost credibility with his indicting, non-indictment of Hillary Clinton's "extreme carelessness" in using a secret server to funnel e-mails through.  So I'm not sad to see him on the receiving end of Trump's "your fired" catchphrase.

Here's just a sample of the Comey Commentaries:

Judson Berger and Brett Baier explain why Comey got canned.

Hannity feels Comey was a national embarrassment.

Tucker Carlson said his firing was long overdue.

Kimberly Guilfoyle felt this was a bold move by Trump.

But of course, leftists like this guy--who hate Comey for his half-assed investigation of Queen Clinton's shenanigans--are now crying "foul!"

More cries of fair & foul will be heard in the days ahead, I'm sure.

Republicare Rumpus--Round 2

(Image by Gary Varvel)
A few days ago, the Republican-led House passed their version of Healthcare reform.  Which unlike the last time, the bill failed in "Round 1."

Like Obamacare before it--the number of Democrats who voted for it equaled the number of Republicans who voted for the original. 

That is:  Zero.

But unlike their opposition to Obamacare, not every House Republican was on board with this newer version

While some Republicans may be wishy-washy about overhauling Obamacare, one of the top Democrats claim Americans will die if Republican re-tuning is implemented.

Talk about a case of the pot calling the kettle black.

Jake Trapper of CNN called-out one Democratic senator on their party's credibility problem.



(Image by Michael Ramirez)

But Republicans shouldn't be popping open the champagne either--for these three reasons. 


I'm not hopeful that any meaningful change to healthcare will be mad--by either party. 

Charles Krauthammer is even more pessimistic and predicts:  We'll be in a single-payer system in less than seven years.

Which, according to this oldie but goodie, may have been Obama's master plan all along...

Thunderstorms Rolled Through Western Washington State

I've barely been able to keep up with the headlines--like the GOP's Obamacare 2.5--because I've been busy at work, leaving me no time to post my irrational rants eloquent analysis of current affairs.

Here's what's kept my coworkers and I busy these past few days:

2500 lightning strikes in Western Washington

Even though the storms are long gone, we're still dealing with the damage left in their wake.

Lauren Southern Video: The Destruction of History




Comrade Karla called our attention to this story on social media.

I'm about as Yankee as one can get.  I was born in the Boston, MA area, and raised in Upstate New York.  So when it comes to the American Civil War, I don't have much, sympathy for the Confederacy's cause.

However, like the lovely Lauren, I do take issue with the destruction of historical monuments.

Even Confederate ones.

While the New Orleans Politburo may not care for Confederate history, they're apparently cool with the Castroites.

The Nuke Nutcase of North Korea

(Image by Robert Ariail)
Mid last week, Our Grand Nagus hosted a classified briefing warning senators that the North Korean threat is "urgent." In the aftermath of the meeting, the White House is considering putting North Korea on the State Sponsors of Terrorism list.

By the end of the week, Trump said during a Reuters interview that a major, major conflict with North Korea is possible.  Meanwhile, Secretary of State, Rex Tillerson, urged the UN to act "before North Korea does." 

But even if we avoid a major, major conflict--or even just a major conflict--with Kim Jong-Un's gang, there's a few more failed states we may have to contend with.

Mark Steyn calls this the Age of the Nuclear Basket Case.
