Laugh of the Day: Krauthammer Called "Conservative"

It's clear:  Krauthammer's past as a (D) Party nag is not really "past."  He's still a moralizing nag.

And--by the way--he's not a "conservative."  See, actual Conservatives value right order, not riots, no matter WHO is throwing the riot.

It's a pattern.  The doctor's prescriptions are wrong, too, as we noted a few days ago.

Trump's Right, Ya'Know

While the Press wets its pants, the Democrats and rioters (yes, I repeat myself) are screaming.

Let 'em scream.

...Trump made clear on Tuesday that he was fed up with continued questioning about the issue.
"I think there is blame on both sides," Trump said.

"You had a group on one side that was bad, and you had a group on the other side that was also very violent. And nobody wants to say that, but I'll say it right now," Trump added.

"What about the alt-left that came charging... at the, as you say, the alt-right? Do they have any semblance of guilt? (...) There are two sides to a story."...

If they're screaming too loud, in your neighborhood, you know what to do.

The Problem With Gummint

If only there were just ONE problem with Gummint!!

That said, here's one, mentioned by ZMan

....The credentialism and parochialism of the managerial state produces people barely capable of working on a local school board committee. Their lack of exposure to the realities of the human condition cripples them spiritually. They become ruthless, overgrown adolescents playing dress up as they ascend into positions of authority. 

That brings us back to Berkeley and Charlottesville. If the political class is unable and unwilling to manage the antics of Antifa and Jason Kessler, what are they going to do when smart and resourceful antagonists come along? The morons waving flags and throwing piss-bombs at each other are the easy problem to manage. The hard problem are the well organized guys with goals beyond getting themselves on TV....

Angelo Codevilla was there first.  That was several years ago--and things haven't changed much since then (see, e.g., McYertle and McMaster).  But things will change, one way or the other.

Barnum & Bailey's Charlottesville?

Ticker raises an interesting question; the same one which occurred to me when I read this:

...What if Jason Kessler used to be involved with Occupy Wall Street and was a strong Obama supporter -- right up until, quite-literally to the day, Trump won the election?...

Well, as a matter of fact, Kessler WAS a part of "Occupy" Wall Street.

To me, it marks Kessler as an opportunist.  He's going where the money is.

But Ticker, a far more cynical guy, has another query:

...What if all -- or at least most -- of Charlottesville was manufactured by people operating through paid stooges with the explicit intent of fomenting violence -- or worse?...

Now THAT is an interesting question, indeed.  And it put's Trump's initial remarks into a whole new light, eh?

McMaster and The Muzzies

It appears that General McMaster has a strange love for Muslims, radical or (supposedly) not.

Unfortunately, that strange love may have a negative impact on the national security of the USA.

But hey!!  Let's worry about subversives like Bannon, instead, right?

If The Donald doesn't wake up soon, he's going to have another Obama problem:  they'll look alike in the history books.

Better Toilet Paper!!

Some of you may wonder why Northern Tissue of Green Bay, WI., is one of the country's leading manufacturers of toilet paper.

Here's one good reason:  Northern invented 'splinter-free' toilet paper.

Yah, hey.

Charlottesville Cops Flee the Scene

When the going gets tough, the cops take off running.

When I got out of my car yesterday in Charlottesville about 10:30 in the morning you knew this was a bad scene and bad things were going to be happening because people were congregating at Lee Park and Emancipation Park wearing helmets, body armor, carrying big heavy sticks. Nobody was intent on peace here from either side. People were intent on causing havoc and causing damage. And even as wounded were being brought out of the park police were sitting idly by. I was standing off a cordoned off area where the police had set up as a staging area, the state police, and they said you can come in here this is a safe area. But when the tear gas started to fly, thrown by protesters, the police themselves began to evacuate then. I asked the guy who was in charge, “Where you going?” He said, “We’re leaving. It’s too dangerous.”  --Doug McKelvey/Fox News quoted at Gateway

The violent ones--nazis or "resistance"--should have been hauled off to slammer and someone should have 'lost their paperwork' for about 5 days or so.  The driver of the car will get what he deserves, I hope, and it won't be pretty, either.

The cop who called off the cops?  He should join the car's driver.  Don't give us all that crapola about "putting my life on the line" any more, either.




Loud-and-Foulmouth Ex-Staffer is Confused, Too.

This rummy Scaramucci doesn't know anything--but he's happy to run his "Noo Yawk Values" mouth about it.

...During ABC News’ livestream interview after "This Week," Scaramucci was asked if he believes Bannon is a white supremacist or white nationalist. Scaramucci said that he didn't know and hasn't directly asked Bannon about his views. 

I’ve never sat down with Steve Bannon and said, ‘Hey are you a white nationalist or a white supremacist?’ But I think the toleration of it by Steve Bannon is inexcusable,” Scaramucci said....

So he does not know what Bannon believes.  And--fool that he is--he accepts the Left-constructed formulation of the 'white nationalist' juxta 'white supremacist' question (both are very, very, very bad, bad, bad) and runs off at the mouth with an answer.

At least he started correctly, by claiming to be ignorant.  

Can he define either of the bad/bad-think options?  Maybe.

To the point, however:  exactly what does Bannon "tolerate," and even more germane, what would Bannon DO about bad bad bad bad very bad)?  Shoot the perps?  Send the IRS?  FBI?  EPA??

Idiot with a mouth, some money, and no wife.

McCain Proposes New Maginot Line!!

"Bomb-Bomb" McCain, noted military strategist (last in his class at Annapolis), announced his new plan for winning a war which has not been won by three (or is it four?) Presidents.

Wanna know the plan?  Easy:  MORE TROOPS!!

Bomb-Bomb will also propose to create large concrete barriers so tanks cannot get into the country, or something, and he may go so far as to replace cavalry horses with small automobile-like topless vehicles.  He has also endorsed steel-hulled warships to replace oak-hulled ones, and he is intrigued by "steam-power."

Last century's war, last century's warrior.  OK, John.  Time to go home.

Trump Looks Better Every Day

OK, I'll concede that The Donald shoulda stood in bed vis-a-vis Alabama politics.

But here's the good news!!  Speaking about various striped-pants flunkies, an observer tells us:

...They also believe Trump’s foreign policy is chiefly driven by an obsession with unravelling Barack Obama’s policies. “It’s his only real position,” one European diplomat said. “He will ask: ‘Did Obama approve this?’ And if the answer is affirmative, he will say: ‘We don’t.’ He won’t even want to listen to the arguments or have a debate. He is obsessed with Obama....

Good.  Case closed.  Obama was--and remains--a Communist globalist wannabee dictator.  Fuck him.

Life at Google: "You WILL Enjoy This!"

A very clever essay on life at Google going forward, written by Google's VP of Mutually Exclusive Propositions on the topic of "The Recent Outrage."

Then it gets better!

Mercenary War? How About....

How about just get the Hell out of Afghanistan?

Leave those miserable natives to do whatever they do best--among themselves, only.

Even the Russians learned faster than we have.

Now, then, if John McCain wants to go, he can go.  Personally!! 

Dear Senator Fitzgerald......

I note that you are concerned with 'payback' time from the Foxconn project; apparently it is now approximating 30 years.

Well, Senator, let's think of another Big Project that you jammed down our throats voted for:  Brewers' Stadium.

How long will THAT take before payback?

Oh--wait--we are STILL PAYING FOR IT!!

And you thought we'd forget, eh?

Baldwin Hopes You Have NO Memory

In the real world, sauce for the goose is sauce for the gander.  Given Tammy Baldwin's behavior, we could conclude that she does not live in the real world--OR, because she has a disorder, she cannot identify as a "goose" NOR a "gander."

Anyhow.

...Brennan received a majority of four votes out of six from a bipartisan judicial commission set up by Johnson and Baldwin, three Republicans and one Democrat. But to receive the recommendation from the commission, Brennan needed five votes, a super-majority....

So Tammy emitted wailing and ululations.

However....

...Baldwin herself bypassed a previous agreement between her and Johnson to jointly consider judicial nominations before sending them to President Barack Obama. In 2015, Baldwin forwarded eight names to Obama outside of the bipartisan process to fill the vacancy on the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals....

Just another hack Democrat with a disorder.  Move along, folks.  Nothing to see here.

New York Values, Part MCMLXIII

It's possible that The Donald would like to retract his favorable comment about "New York Values".

For another taste of those, there's this:

Motherhood Isn’t Sacrifice, It’s Selfishness
That's the title of a NYT editorial written by some HarperCollins functionary.  Here's a part of her concluding graf:

...If we start referring to motherhood as the beautiful, messy privilege that it is, and to tending to our children as the most loving yet selfish thing we do,...

I do not think that word means what you think it does.

"AIDS Prevention" for $1500/Month

The drug allegedly prevents HIV (AIDS) so United Healthcare (read:  policyholders) will pay for it. 

Fifteen hundred dollars per month.

There are cheaper ways, ya'know.

Lowe's Dumps US Workers, Sends Jobs to India

There are two nooz stories on the same topic.  Only one of them tells you about exporting the jobs to India, commonly called "offshoring."

Here's the version that Lowe's does NOT want you to read:

...Lowe’s has laid off about 125 corporate tech workers, primarily at its headquarters in Mooresville.
The home-improvement retailer informed affected employees Wednesday morning through early afternoon, according to people familiar with the matter.

Many of the affected information technology job functions are being sent to Bangalore, India, where Lowe’s employs approximately 1,000 people in information and technology and analytics....

So Lowe's--selling goods in the US only--is employing more than 1,000 folks in Bangalore.

Nice!

Here's the sanitized story.  Guess which "nooz" outfit ran it?

There's More to the Story on the "Kiss of Peace"

Switching from the country's gruesome political problems to an interesting theory on the "kiss of peace" (or the Handshake which Never Stops) which was re-instituted in the Ordinary Form Mass (it was not used by the laity in the '62 Rite), we have Fr. Hunwicke.

....Having criticised his fellow Christians for witholding the Kiss so as publicly to flaunt the fact that they had been fasting, [Tertullian] goes on ' ... on the day of the Pasch, on which there is a rule of fasting which is common to all and as it were public, we rightly drop the kiss, because we don't care about hiding the thing [i.e. fasting] which we are doing with everybody else'. Those familiar with the traditional Roman Rite will recall that, to this day, we do not exchange the Sign of Peace at the Good Friday Mass of the Presanctified, nor at the Mass of the Easter Vigil (even though the celebrant has said the words). This is because we are all deemed to have been fasting.

IOW, if a Christian was fasting, they 'withheld the Kiss.'  Tertullian didn't like that because he thought it was flaunting one's fasting (holiness).

BUT also recall that until John XXIII, Catholics fasted from midnight anticipating reception of Holy Communion.  Thus, if to fast = no Kiss, the absence of 'the Kiss' from the Old Rite is explained.

 Hmmmmmm.

Orders Are Out. So Are Military Trannies

It looks like the Commander-in-Chief has issued the directive.

According to multiple reports in LGBT news outlets, the White House has issued policy guidelines aimed at bringing the ranks of the military in line with President Trump’s recent tweets.

Titled, “A Guidance Policy for Open Transgender Service Phase Out,” the document has not yet been made public.

The Washington Blade reports that, “Sources familiar with the planning said it would encourage early retirement, usher out any enlisted personnel after their contract is up, and would fire trans officers up for promotion. Basically, said a source, ‘the administration wants to get rid of transgender service members as fast as they can.’”...

Gnostic mutilation is not part of "health care," and mentally disturbed people should not be part of the military.

Civil "Servants" Revolt Coming??

There are rumors about that The Swamp is planning to give The Donald some trouble.

...Chris Horner, a senior fellow at the Competitive Enterprise Institute, pointed to news reports about upset employees, social media campaigns and “civil disobedience” training for staffers looking to push back against the White House. ...

That's from The Hill, a mainstream-ish 'net news source on things D.C.-ish.

One hopes that the "civil disobedience" doesn't place swamp-critters in traffic lanes.  That might be foolish, eh?

WUT?? Paul Ryan on National Security: "Meh"

A very interesting take on the "freedom of the press" thing from Paul Ryan.

“Leaks are concerning because leaks can often compromise national security but that’s the problem of the leaker not the journalist,” Ryan said at an event in Muskego, Wisconsin on Friday afternoon.--quoted at RedState

Oh.  So some Pentagon leaker can send the Army's war-planning documents to CNN and CNN can run a documentary on those plans?

You have a serious problem with morals, Speaker Ryan, if you think that 'freedom of the press' includes the freedom to destroy--or endanger--the safety and security of 300 million Americans.  For that matter, the moral code to which most of us subscribe also prohibits endangering our agents (e.g., spies), too.

Let's put it another way, Paul.  Why--exactly--do you keep armed guards at your residence?  Security?  Safety?  OK, then:  why does any other American deserve LESS security or safety because someone in "The Press" has the ability to destroy it?

Hmmmmmmm???


The Continuing Mental Deterioration of Krauthammer

We all get it, Dr. Charles:  you don't like Trump.  OK, already.  But now, Dr. Charles, you are showing your Al Gore side:  the one which is incapable of systematic reasoning.

...[Krauthammer] celebrates five instances in which, he says, the “guardrails” of our democracy “held against the careening recklessness of” President Trump. They are: the military “say[ing] no to Trump on the transgender ban”; the Senate “saving” Jeff Sessions; Senate Republicans rejecting Obamacare repeal; the Boy Scouts pushing back against Trump’s speech; and the police chiefs pushing back against Trump’s advocacy of treating suspects roughly....

Wrong on the first--not even the most rabid Lefty could support your position there.  Wrong on the second, as the President may fire whoever he appointed (although firing Sessions would have been stupid); wrong on the third--the (R) Party is the party of fraud, trickery, and deceit, Charlie; and the homo-harboring Boy Scouts?  Really??  As to the cops, well, some people just need a bang on the head, Dr. Charlie.

I hear that the Democrats need help with their messaging, Charlie.  Maybe you should raise your hand.

Your FBI: Not Just Idiots! Liars, Too.

Yah, I sure wouldn't be bragging about being in the Feebs.

Earlier today we linked to a video of the FBI (and local yokels) losing a perp that they HAD IN CUSTODY. 

Now we note that the FBI is a pack of liars, too. 

Swamp.  All of them are swamp.


Don't Eat Beef? Here's How to Tell!

Apparently, vitamin B-12 is available in beef, but not other stuff.

Don't get your B-12?  Here's what happens:

  • difficulty thinking and reasoning (cognitive difficulties), or memory loss
  • paranoia or hallucinations
  • weakness
  • fatigue
Beef.  It's what's for sanity!

The Smoke of Satan? Yup. Fire, Too!!

Remember when Paul VI told us that 'the smoke of Satan' was present in the Church?

Yah, well.  Where there's smoke, there's fire.  And you know there's a fire when the Vatican features Governor Moonbeam Brown (an ex-Jesuit, if you don't remember) as a "keynote speaker."

But believe it or not, Moonbeam Jerry may be the LEAST poisonous critter at the event.  Read the link, then go do some prayer and fasting.

Feebs & Cops: The Incompetents' Handbook

This is hard to believe. 

About two dozen FBI and local cops arrive at a perp's house.  They drag him out.

He F(*&^%NG ESCAPES!!

Yup.  In the wind, a "danger to the community," yadayada. 

The cops and Feebs couldn't run fast enough to catch the goblin while wearing their Genuine GI-Joe Combat Gear w/Combat Boots, Extra Grenade Pockets, Webb-Belt Doodad-Carriers, and AR-Slings ($599.95 at Tough Guys-R-Us, buy now!!).

It's actually humorous, in a way.
