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.

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.

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:, 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 " 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:


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:
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?


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.

Prager U Video: Why Isn't Communism as Hated as Nazism?

I've always wondered about this.

In this video Dennis Prager explains how the nice-sounding concepts of Communism still cause people to be cool with this ideology.

People like the producers of Watch Mojo and their Top 5 Facts About Communism.

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.
