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...

(Image by Chip Bok in reference to the Google engineer being fired for his "anti-diversity" memo)

...and beyond our borders...

(Image by Michael Ramirez, in reference to Trump's "Fire and Fury" rhetoric in response to Kim Jong Un threatening Guam)

(Image by Michael Ramirez in reference to Maduro's power grab in Venezuela)

...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).


(Image by Dials, found on Pintrest, Chevy Volt)
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.

(Image by Glenn McCoy)

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.

The Ministry of Truth's Meltdown


("Then" image by Dixon Diaz found on Pintrest)
Ever since Barry O got elected, us like-minded folks realized the media wasn't as unbiased as they claimed--and still claim to be (like Katie Couric)--to be.

Sarah Hoyt makes a point that the media never was and has always attempted to control the narrative (and our thoughts).

Since 2009, journalists have been openly acting more like minions from Orwell's Ministry of Truth, or like employees from the public relations (PR) firm for the Democratic Party.

VDH wrote this spot-on article detailing America's media meltdown.

Disintegrating Western Civilization Through Diversity

(Image by Ken Catalino)
A week ago, Justine Damond, an Australian national, was shot by officer Mohammed Noor of the Minneapolis PD.  A couple days later, it was reported Justine called 911 to report a possible sexual assault, while the Noor and his partner claim they were startled by a loud noise. An investigation has been underway, but there's still more questions than answers to a shooting that should not have happened.

Here's what didn't happen last week:  Instantaneous national coverage and outrage by national news agencies and activist groups.

I first saw this story pop up on a couple of conservative websites I don't usually frequent.  Then it appeared on FOX News, followed by all the rest.

National activist groups didn't mobilize, which is probably a good thing.  Rachel Alexander called-out Black Lives Matter for their obsession with supposed racism.  However, local protesters interrupted the Minneapolis mayors' news conference.

Although, since the shooting other tidbits of disparate information has come to light.  Like this is the second time Officer Noor has run afoul of the citizenry, while Herhonor Hodges of Minneapolis has been drinking the multi-cultural flavored cool-aid telling everyone to "embrace the discomfort of transformation."

Mark Steyn masterfully connects the dots of such disparate details such as "migratory birds" in Europe with police-involved shootings in America, and comes up with a common denominator in his Diversity and Disintegration article.

And that common denominator is, as Paul Joseph Watson pointed out in his video Some Cultures Are Better Than Others everyone on the planet wants to move to the west, but they "...want to bring the worst aspects of their own culture with them..."

SteynPost #18 Video: The Biggest Issue of Our Time



The news networks and politicians are still blathering about the GOP's inability to repeal & replace Obamacare, or Our Grand Nagus' collusion with the Barechested Czar.

Or both.

Meanwhile, just about everyone is ignoring what Mark Steyn calls the Biggest Issue of Our Time.  That is, the declining population throughout Western Civilization, especially in Europe.

This actually isn't new news.  Comrade Karla introduced me to Mark Steyn's work, along with a slew of other conservative commentators, in and around the time of the September 11th Attack.

Right from the get-go, Mark's been the proverbial voice in the wilderness about the changing demographics of Europe and America.  Or as he likes to call himself--a Demographic Bore.

Boring or otherwise, Mark has been asking non-politically correct questions about these changes for well over a decade.   Primarily:  Will a culture remain the same once the immigrant population from foreign cultures outnumber the long-time locals.

It's now being referred to as The Great Replacement, as Lauren Southern discusses in this video.

As both Lauren and Mark have stressed, none of us like-minded folks have any qualms about newcomers legally becoming residents and full-fledged citizens.

It's when these newcomers want to drag their bad old ideas along with them that's the problem.

Obamacare Repeal Bill Collapsed

(Image by Gary Varvel)
Well the big news yesterday was the GOP's attempt to pass their Repeal Obamacare Now--Replace Later Bill crashed and burned.

Our Grand Nagus expressed his disappointment, and has attempted to wash his hands of the matter by declaring "...we're going to let Obamacare collapse..."

Greg Gutfeld does a good job of comparing the complexity of Obamacare to a TV remote.


I only use a few buttons on my TV remote too.  And as far as Barry O's campaign promise, I've been lucky enough to "keep my doctor" under Obamacare, but that doesn't mean I've liked it.  I resent having to report to the IRS that I do indeed have healthcare, lest I get fined.

Barry O and the Democrats ramrodded Obamacare upon us.  However, I don't think Trump and the Republicans will get away consequence-free.  They were voted into office, in part, on their campaign promises of repealing Obamacare.   But if polls are to be believed, most Americans don't want Obamacare messed with.

Next year's midterm elections should prove interesting, to say the least.

FOX Video: Gutfeld--You Want Collusion, Media? You Invented It



Gregg Gutfled colludes with Mark Steyn in calling-out the Ministry of Truth's reluctance to investigate any scandals perpetrated by Hillary or Obama, but pursue their RussiaRussiaRussia obsession with Trump.

The RussiaRussiaRussia Obsession

(Image by Lisa Benson)

Throughout last week, CNN, along with every other leftist news network, was in hot pursuit of the White Whale Russian Obsession.

What's helping fan the flames of obsession is that there's now apparently some evidence of collusion by Grand Nagus Junior (how-ever...).

Collusion or not, it's another breathless cry by leftists we have totally got Trump! Wash. Rinse. Repeat.
 
Mark Steyn had a couple of entertaining takes on this.  First, on Tucker Carlon's show with his Azerbaijani Sunshine on CNN Shoulder, followed-up by his Chancers and Honeytraps on Fox and Friends.

Of course, past collusions have been absolved, or forgotten about.

(Image by Steve Kelley)
The Diplomad, with the help of Scott McKay at the American Spectator, believe the Grand Nagus Junior's Collusion was a set up by the Barry O Administration.

Possibly.

This certainly raises more questions about how the shady Russian rogues managed to set up the Smoking Gun Meeting--under Barry O's watch.

Even so, Ben Shapiro asks:  What if there's no Trump-Putin conspiracy? 

Now I don't mean to sound like a Grand Nagus apologist, or cavalier about our political ruling class hobnobbing with disreputable foreigners (or disreputable Americans for that matter).

Until there's some "there there," such as discovering a secret server stashed in Trump Tower circumventing national security protocols, I'm not getting bent around the axle over this "parade of phony scandals."

Unless they're definitively proven otherwise.

Obamacare Replacement's Third Rail

(Image by Gary Varvel)
This past week, Congressional Republicans have been trying to hash-out Obamacare 2.0.

Unlike other subjects I've added my $0.02 worth of blog-fodder to, I've shied away from the Republicans repeated and inept attempts to repeal & replace Obamacare.

I knew once it was grafted to the US Economy it would be damn-near impossible to excise it--and it would be a political third rail for Congressional Republicans.

This of course, has led to a lot of Republican in-fighting.  Rand Paul vowed he won't vote for Obamacare Lite.

Whatever the end-game in all this, I'm sure a sizable--and vocal--number of people won't be happy with the result.

And the Republicans will get all the blame.

Good Grammar Declared Racist

(Image found on YouTube video Understanding the Culture University of Tacoma Washington Says Grammar Is Racist)
A couple days ago, Comrade Karla notified us that the University of Washington, Tacoma Campus' Writing Center declared good grammar was racist.

Unfortunately this kind of stupidity isn't new, just new to Washington State's campuses. Gregg Gutfeld responded to the Guardian's (UK) similar claim several months ago.

An on-line friend wondered if we've been invaded by aliens.  I responded that an alien invasion would remove the stigma that humans can't be this stupid.

At least we have a new banner to wave in front of the Social Justice Whiners...

The Trump-Putin G-20 Postscript

(Image by Chip Bok)
Last week Our Grand Nagus attended the G-20 Summit, and chatted with Russia's Bare-Chested Czar.  Which, of course, is proof-positive of Trump's collusion with Putin.

The the pearl-clutching press took a minor detour in their Russian Narrative to criticize Trump's opening words in Warsaw, Poland; which by all accounts of like-minded folks, was an inspirational speech.

Well, inspiring to those of us who don't hate Western Civilization; like Jeff Zeleny, who thinks it was some White America, America First racist rant.

Then there's folks like Brad Woodhouse, who claim Trump was tooting on his dog whistle to us white nationalists.

But as James Taranto, via Mark Styen's Lutey Tunes article, observes:  "...if you can hear the dog whistle, you're the dog."

So while the Ministry of Truth continues to spin its Russia-Russia-Russia Cycle...

...the rest of us like-minded folks are trying to change the channel...

FOX News Video: Bolling--Do Us A Favor and Don't Come Back, Mayor de Blasio




It looks like Hizzoner of the Big Apple followed a page right out of the Obama Playbook.

When your presence is needed to assure American citizens:  Be somewhere else, like the golf course, a fundraiser--or in De Blasio's case--jetting-off to Germany to hang out with your protestor pals at last week's G-20 Summit Meeting.

Let's hope New Yorkers turn out in droves for the next election and shitcan De Blasio's political aspirations.

Better yet, Hizzoner should heed the NY Post's front page recommendation:

Corleone News Network--The Most Distrusted Name in News

(Image by Mike Lester)
Yesterday, I posted about what the local media in the Seattle,WA area wasn't discussing.

Today will be a round-up of a news agency  too far.  That is, the Case of CNN (now being referred to as the Coreleone News Network) which tracked down the supposed creator of the "Trump vs CNN" tweet and issued a veiled threat against him. 

The Roaming Millennial gives an excellent rundown of #CNNBlackmail

While the CNN hosts were thrilled over the discovery of the identity of HanAssholeSolo, Senator Cruz wondered if CNN broke Georgia state laws.

 Whether or not CNN violated the letter of any law, Greg Gutfeld said they screwed up (again).

(Image by Gary Varvel)
Mark Steyn quipped it was as if Wolf Blitzer put a horse's head in some guy's bed.

Of course, CNN's thin-skinned and thuggish behavior has left them wide open for well-deserved ridicule.

FOX News Video: Gutfeld--Seattle's Minimum Wage Hike Failures




Not only is the minimum wage hike not turning the People's Democratic Republic of Seattle into a Workers' Paradise as the city's Politburo promised, but it appears that Chairman Murray attempted to preempt a University of Washington study critical of the wage hike.

And in a case of the "dog that didn't bark," a coworker and I haven't found any of this on any local news sources.  We stumbled across these stories on conservative-ish news sites.

Oh, these stories may be somewhere on local news outlets, and if I were a paid journalist it would be my job to find them.

But as a citizen blogger, I shouldn't have to ferret-out news and information impacting the community I live in, or commute to.

It's Good to be the Governor

(Image by Steve Breen)
Here in Washington State, we narrowly averted a government shutdown--again--before the Independence Day Weekend.  (Two years ago, we averted a state government shutdown over the bi-annual budget).

Apparently, the citizens of the Garden State weren't so lucky.  The state government shut down started on Friday (30 June) and wasn't resolved until Monday, (3 July) when Governor Chris Christie signed a budget deal.

Ah, but in a great example of It's good to be the King,  Christie--and his family--were spotted on a beach--a public beach closed to the rest of the Jersey serfs over the weekend due to the government shut down.

Maybe Christie needed the solitude to ponder why he didn't get the Republican Party nomination during the 2016 Presidential Campaign.

FOX News Video: Gutfeld--World Hatred Of Trump Is Their Problem, Not Ours




I thought I'd take a moment to give my fellow Americans something else to celebrate this upcoming Independence Day:  Apparently, the world hates Our Grand Nagus.

Glad to hear it.

To piggy-back off what Greg and his cohorts said:  Trump is the President of the United States--not the world's student body president.

It's also funny how people from all over the world are trying to come to America--by hook, or by crook--even when governed by Republican presidents.

CNN's Credibility in the Crapper

(Image by Glenn McCoy)
In case you had any doubt, CNN producer, Jimmy Carr, thinks American voters are stupid as shit.

He's not the only one in any left-leaning newsroom to think so.

Knowing elite leftists hate our guts makes it hard to be upset over Our Drunk Dailer in-Chief's latest Twitter tussle with leftist activists-in-journalistic clothing. 

As most of the panelists on The Five pointed out, the media doesn't have a moral leg to stand on.

James O'Keefe goes even further, calling CNN America's Pravda (he's now on part 3 in a video series).

Mark Steyn glibly observed that the network's interview with Sesame Street's Elmo was the least nutty thing CNN did all week.

The irony in all this is CNN's credibility crisis merely confirmed what many of us already knew, or at least suspected.  Just check out the comments in any online video of this subject.

FOX News Video: Tucker--The Real Tragedy of Trump's Tweets about Mika




Well, I wasn't in New Zealand, as Tucker Carlson suggested.  But I was disconnected, and for an excellent reason: 

I was in South Carolina for my daughter's BIG, FAT WESTERN WEDDIN'!

Sometime after walking my daughter down the aisle, Our Drunk Dialer in-Chief ignited a firestorm for his comments towards Morning Joe's hostess Mika Brzezinski.

I'm with Tucker on this one.  Our Grand Nagus needs to stay focused and not get distracted by the media personalities that loathe him.

I can almost hear Guy Benson sighing heavily as he typed this one:

So, I guess we have to talk about Trump's stupid Twitter war with Mika Brzezinski, huh?

One of the reasons why I'm talking about this storm-in-a-teacup is semi-personal.

Before I even read-up on this story, a Facebook friend issued an ultimatum demanding that everyone who continues to support Trump to unfriend him.  

So I did.  The last time I did this, over a year ago, it took me three days to decide whether to comply or not.  This time it took me three seconds.

Not because I agree with Our Grand Nagus' crude comments.  Mika is a good looking gal--facelift or not.  It's just that I won't remain cyber-pals with anyone who demands I agree with them 100% of the time on 100% of their pet peeves.

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

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...

...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.
