Why Yes, the Feeb Lied. Of Course!

The Finicum affair.  Turns out an FBI agent lied.  Prolly thought he was James Comey, or something.

Anthem Loves Gummint Money!

Surprise!!  A health-insurance provider loves to get taxpayer money.

So they say that the Senate bill (already a failure, by the way) will "stabilize the market."

What they really mean is "Stabilize Anthem's Checkbook."

Yah, well, $100 BILLION would stabilize my checkbook, too.


How (D) Slime Ooozes

In case you're wondering how the slime-that-is-Democrat manages to continue oozing around in Washington DC (and for that matter, Madison, WI), this is the model:

...Democrats, however, want nothing to do with the discussion about growing entitlement spending.
On Fox News Sunday, Brit Hume asked Senator Dick Durbin, D-Ill., to address Medicaid sustainability.

Durbin responded with a dodge, nevertheless, Hume persisted: "Is not Medicaid expanding at an unsustainable rate and does not something have to be done… to curb the growth of this program and others like it?"

Durbin responded, "Brit, let me tell you what is expanding at an unsustainable rate, and that is the notion that people would not have health insurance under this Republican approach."...

Durbin is one reason for the appellation "FIB."  But he's merely one of the legion infesting Congress.  And if he goes, seven more--who are worse--will take his place.  

See, Paul Ryan, THIS Is How It's Done

At this point, the House Pubbies are merely watching.  They could learn something.

...Shedding his reputation as one of the Senate’s most contentious members, he has already suggested one possible middle-ground compromise: an amendment allowing insurers to offer some plans that don’t comply with Obamacare’s mandates, as long as they maintain at least one plan that does conform to the requirements. This is a clever compromise on the part of Cruz....

Notice that the truly Conservative position is enshrined in the compromise, as is the Lefty-wanker one?

Others--in the House, for instance, should learn from this.  Right, Paul Ryan??

(I know Paul's not a "conservative" by any stretch of the imagination, so he doesn't have to take this seriously.  Neither did Hillary....)

The Cuba That Obozo Loves

THIS is the Cuba that Obama loves, folks.

Over thirty members of the Ladies in White, a peaceful Catholic dissident group in Cuba, were violently arrested over the weekend for attempting to attend Sunday Mass, including leader Berta Soler....

...This weekend, the group had planned to attend the weekly Mass at their local Havana church but, according to a Diario de Cuba note denouncing the arrests, most were arrested on their way out of their homes. In Soler’s case, according to Lady in White Daisy Artiles, five uniformed Cuban police officers apprehended her while leaving the house “holding a sign demanding freedom for political prisoners.”

“They took her sign away violently and dragged her into a car,” Artiles said. “Then a mob began to yell obscenities at us...

Nothing like a Commie dictatorship in the Americas to get Obozo's jeans all aroused.

Thank you, Donald Trump, for kicking Castro in the nuts.

Is Ed Flynn Making It Up?

'Fast Eddie' Flynn, Milwaukee top cop (and a lefty), claims that concealed-carry license holders are using their carry permits (and guns) to help big-time drug dealers in Milwaukee.

Mike Crivello, the police-union guy, says "Wut???"

Flynn says he can't reveal the facts because of 'the law.'

Hmmmmm.

Serious National Security Problem in (D) House Caucus

The Daily Caller has been on this story for months.  (Fox6 Milwaukee has not; they're busy swallowing Muslim propaganda.)

It's not a complicated story.  Wasserman-Schultz hired a bunch of Pakistani citizens to run all the (D) caucus' IT functions.  ALL OF THEM.  National security?  Balderdash!!  The Pakis have administrative privileges on ALL THE IT for the Democrats.

Trump's Administration--so far--doesn't give a rotten damn.

Curious, eh?

Milwaukee "Hate Crime": More BS?

Most of us recall the incident--an older woman was attacked after praying at her mosque one day in April. 

The Press (including the reliably-Lefty Channel 6) swallowed the story given by the Usual Suspect Muslim Propaganda Bunch.  (In fact, the Muslim who spread the story used to be employed by a Hamas-affiliated entity.  Hamas is a terrorist organization, folks.)

Anyhow, the police reports completely contradict the "anti-Muslim" crapola fed to us by Ted Perry's bunch of bozos.


Hey, Rob Reiner! BRING IT!

A fat and sloppy Hollywood twit wants "all-out war" on Trump.

Bring it, jackass.

The Failure of "R" Healthcare: Takings

Eric Erickson's analysis can be reduced to this:

...Essentially, the Senate Republicans, like their House counterparts, are conceding that the legislation must be about access to healthcare and have consequently abandoned the goal of trying to lower the costs of healthcare. As a result, the legislation does not really fix anything that Obamacare broke. It is a tinkering and tickling of Obamacare. Importantly, however, the moment the GOP passes it, the Democrats will be able to blame shift. Every Obamacare problem will still exist after this legislation is passed, but suddenly the GOP will own all those problems. Every terrible headline will suddenly be about Trumpcare, not Obamacare....

RoJo is trying to change that "costs" problem, to a limited degree; he sees the Medicaid solution that has worked in Wisconsin and wants it to be a national option.  But even RoJo has conceded the premise:  "healthcare" is a right which taxpayers will pay for no matter the cost.  Such a construct is wrong, for it eliminates charity in favor of takings (from taxpayers).

This "takings" is the soul and lifeblood of the Leviathan in Mordor-on-the-Potomac, of course.  It will never go away at the hand of politicians.  By others, maybe.

RoJo's Still Objecting!!

And that's a good thing. 

Just heard him on McKenna's show; the Senate ObozoCare "replacement" sucks.  Unless--like McConnell--you like throwing Large Money at every problem (which means that McConnell retains control over your life.)

Don't like Slimy Mitch controlling your life?  Or even worse, Schumer controlling it?

Fix the Senate bill.  Thanks, Ron!!

So. Was 1776-ffd. Just a Waste of Blood?

Here's the takeaway line from a review of a book on Administrative Law (which is what you ACTUALLY have to obey in the US.)

...“Hamburger makes an impressive case that modern administrative law owes its lineage to claims of monarchical prerogative and civil law absolutism that were precisely the ideas that the American revolution was trying to reject.”...

For those of you who still believe the Civics 101 crap you studied in grade school--my sympathy.  We are far, far, beyond that stuff.

And the 'beyond' is far, far, worse than you ever imagined.  Food for thought on this 4th of July, eh?

Wiggy Takes Command!

In a week, James Wigderson will take the con of Starship Right Wisconsin.

Congratulations, we think.

Kennedy Retire? Bring It On!

A typical opinion from some superannuated prune in the WaPo.

Won't bother to fisk it--but if you're looking for WaPo/Establishment-speak, go to the second half of the vomitous blather.

Meantime, it raises the hope that Kennedy will bail and Diane Sykes will fill the slot.

Chances Are 1 in 16.....

....that YOU have been "unmasked" by CIA/FBI/NSA.

Wouldn't you like to know?  And to know why??

...Montgomery alleges that more than 20 million American identities were illegally unmasked – credit reports, emails, phone conversations and Internet traffic, were some of the items the NSA and CIA collected....Circa News quoted at Hot Air

Which of you dear readers is a suspect??  Hmmmmm??

The Feebs Sink Even Further

The FBI/Feebs issued a report on the Virginia shooting.

It is horsecrap.

Feebs claim that the shooter 'did not surveil' the park and 'had no target in mind' when he shot as many rounds as he could at Republicans who were practicing there since the shooter knew that the Republicans WERE practicing there AND he knew exactly where the place was.

Feebs as bad at reporting the events as the shooter was at shooting. 

Far more at The Federalist, which characterizes the Feeb report as "bizarre."  And this is AFTER Comey left the building!

Wisconsin School Spending

Just a couple of quick facts from Sen. Lassee.

In 2008/09, the State spent $4,760,000,000 on school districts.  In 2014/15, that number became $5,091,000,000.

If you are sentient, you recognize that State spending has INCREASED in that timeframe.

Here's the thing:  in 08/09, there were 860,477 students.  In 14/15, there were only 854,359 little skulls full of mush.

Suckers.

RoJo Steps Up!

Was there ever a doubt that McConnell would screw conservatives??

...MitchCare keeps Obamacare's coverage mandates, it keeps Obamacare's costly Medicaid spending, and it keeps Obamacare's subsidies. If it passes, it will lead to endless bailouts, price increases, and debt – all blamed on Republicans and the free market....

Now for the good news:
  
Senators Mike Lee (R-UT), Ted Cruz (R-TX), Rand Paul (R-KY), and Ron Johnson (R-WI) aren't playing along.


Good.  McConnell is another slimy old politician who--like McCain--needs a good case of retirement.

Parish Holy Week Schedule, 1943

There is one major and several minor differences between this 1943 Holy Week schedule and those of the modern day.

The minor ones have to do with the time-of-day of the ceremonies.

The major one:  apparently during those times, people sinned, and KNEW it.  And the priest actually cared.

Oh, HELL, No!!!!

Kass proposes a "solution" to the imminent bankruptcy of the State of Illinois.

...Since our neighboring states are doing better, taking Illinois jobs and businesses and Illinois workers and taxpaying families, they might as well just take the rest of Illinois, too, dammit.

Wisconsin can have Chicago and begin calling it "South Milwaukee."...

Nope.  HELL, No!!  Not now, not ever.

I have a better idea.  Give Chicago to California.  Or Venezuela.  They are much more compatible, and need a 'change of seasons' place to call home.
Kass suggests giving Chicago to Wisconsin and renaming it “South Milwaukee,”

Durbin-Grassley: Screwing Americans, Again

The Professor mentions Durbin-Grassley (H-1B) again, and again mentions that Durbin and Grassley are screwing US information technology workers and students.

Grassley--who also sucks at the font of Corn-A-Hole--is in serious need of retirement.

Ass'y Pubbies: "Spend!! Spend!!! Spend!!!!!"

By far one of the most ludicrous ideas to come from the mouth of Vos.

...Capitol insiders tell MacIver News that Assembly leadership is sticking to a plan to issue laptops or tablets to all high school freshman. The initiative is expected to cost $10 million, according to sources.

The Assembly rolled out the plan in September as part of its "Forward Agenda."

At the time, Assembly Speaker Robin Vos, R-Rochester, said, "Every single student should have the opportunity to have that same access to technology, be they someone who's poor in the inner city or wealthy in the suburbs." He said there would be no income threshold tied to the initiative....

All the students have equal access to pens, pencils, paper, and books, Robin.

What you're doing is giving the "rich kids" Free Stuff that they could have paid for with pocket change--and taxing the poor folks to pay for it.  Truly a Republican ideal!

So, Robin:  exactly what problem will free stuff fix?  Hmmmm????

Atheists vs. Eeeeeevil Christian Music (!)

Yah, it's come to this.  The Usual-Suspect Atheists are threatening a lawsuit over the choice of music in a high-school 'sacred music' concert.  The concert had been held in a Catholic church--which will change to a college auditorium next year--but those EEEeeeeeevil Muuuuuusic selections....oh, my!

...Americans United Staff Attorney Ian Smith said in April that he was encouraged by the board's decision to move the concert, but would await judgment regarding what music would be performed.
The December letter pointed to songs such as "Do You Hear What I Hear?" and "O Holy Night" as being inappropriate, in addition to the venue itself.

Americans United Associate Legal Director Alex Luchenitser seconded Smith's stance Monday.
"We're pleased that the location of the concert has been changed. We just have to wait and see with respect to the content of the concert," Luchenitser said. "We're going to just keep watching and keep monitoring it."....

These cockroaches would probably burst into flames at a rendition of Mahler's Second.  Wouldn't pour water on them if it happened....

Apropos to this news item is an excerpt from one of Fred's columns (HT ColdFury):

...Democracy works better the smaller the group practicing it. In a town, people can actually understand the questions of the day. They know what matters to them. Do we build a new school, or expand the existing one? Do we want our children to recite the pledge of allegiance, or don’t we? Reenact the Battle of Antietam? Sing Christmas carols in the town square? We can decide these things. Leave us alone....

Then came The Feds.  You know what's happened since.

Pp. Francis and Hell? Or No Hell?

We're fascinated by this item, too.

...In Amoris Laetitia, Pope Francis announces: “No one can be condemned forever, because that is not the logic of the Gospel!” (297)....papal ghostwriter Archbishop Victor Manuel Fernandez is ebullient with joy because, as he declares in a 1995 article, “I rely firmly upon the truth that all are saved.” The author of Heal Me With Your Mouth: The Art of Kissing, Fernandez elsewhere rhapsodizes that extra-marital sex can express “ecstatic” charity and “Trinitarian richness.”...

Oh.

It gets more interesting, with Hegel tossed into the mix for fun.

Let us remember that another very influential Jesuit has declared that Satan is a made-up character.

So I'll be politically incorrect:  what the Hell is going on with these Beelzebubs?

The Civil War in the Church, Part VI

This had to happen sooner or later.

Four Cardinals have publicly released their letter to the Pope from April 25, 2017 unsuccessfully asking him for a private audience to discuss “confusion and disorientation” within the Church after the publication of the Pope’s April 2016 Exhortation Amoris Laetitia.

In the letter Cardinals lament the great division in the Church on basic morality as a result of the pope's exhortation.

“And so it is happening — how painful it is to see this! — that what is sin in Poland is good in Germany, that what is prohibited in the archdiocese of Philadelphia is permitted in Malta," they wrote....

It's signed by Cdls. Caffarra, Burke, Meisner, and Brandmuller, all of whom have been subject to verbal abuse by various bureaucrats who owe their pathetic 'careers' to Pp. Francis.  In the case of Burke, Pp. Francis manufactured a reason to fire him from his assignment with the Knights of Malta, too.

Prayer and fasting is recommended.

Deep State Hide-and-Seek Game Is On!

Well, well.  It appears that the Leftist elements of the Deep State are getting worried.

The National Security Council cannot hand over records relating to former National Security Adviser Susan Rice’s surveillance of Americans, because they have been moved to the Obama presidential library and may be sealed for as may as five years, conservative watchdog Judicial Watch announced Monday....

Umnnhhhh, yah.  The records are "unavailable."  And when some court demands they be turned over, there will be a fire, or flood, or something.  Those records are 'disappeared,' period.

...Incidentally, those records were moved pretty damn quickly, ain'a?  Usually, it takes Gummint six months just to FIND records....

Pubbies Won't Work for Trump? Advice for Them

It is reported (I know, it's the WaPo) that Pubbies are not answering the call from Trump to work in his administration.

...[His] volatile temperament makes them nervous. They are asking head-hunters if their reputations could suffer permanent damage, according to 27 people...WaPo quoted at HotAir

Answer:  No.  (But I don't think that's the real reason, anyway.  More on that below.)

About 30 years ago, a local company was headed up by its owner, a very bright guy, also with a "volatile temperament."  He was an engineer, and his company went through sales and marketing management people like poop through a goose.  Seriously.  Typical tenure was 6-12 months, with 4 weeks not uncommon.

The company grew despite that, largely because the products were very good.

But in the marketplace, getting fired by that clown was NOT a career-ender; in fact, it was almost a mark of pride.  Other employers didn't even bother to check references with that company; they all knew that anyone working there was going to be a short-timer, so there was no "black mark" on the resume.

Moving on:  I suspect that the REAL reason these folks won't go there is this:  Trump is not a good-little-boy "Republican".  The thrust and direction of his administration is antinomian, which good little Republicans do not understand, nor do they like.  Being antinomian is being anti-Establishment.  See what the problem is??  Besides, their "NeverTrumper" pals won't invite them to cocktail parties any more.  Imagine a lifetime without Egg McMuffin!!


Old Bag Wants to "Get Nasty". No Need to Do Anything, Liz

So yeah.  Daddy's Day!

Don't forget to remember YOUR father--and if you can, HIS father, too.  I hit the gravesite this morning just for that reason.

'Islam Pure' IS the Threat

If you've read this blog, you know this already.

...Islam is an open-ended declaration of war against non-Muslims” and those who carry out violent jihad are true Muslims who are applying exactly what their creed demands....

Which is to say that 'peaceful Muslims' are semi-Muslim.  They're like the 'raised Catholic' people who advocate for abortion, or no longer bother with Mass and the Sacraments.  

The Jesuit who wrote that has a few other noteworthy comments:

...Those who fail to recognize the real threat posed by Islam are naïve and ignorant of history, he said, and unfortunately many in the Church fall into this category.

Citing a letter he wrote last August to Pope Francis, Father Boulad said that “on the pretext of openness, tolerance and Christian charity — the Catholic Church has fallen into the trap of the liberal left ideology which is destroying the West.”

“Anything that does not espouse this ideology is immediately stigmatized in the name of ‘political correctness,’” he said....

And finally, he takes a swipe at the "peace, peace" crowd:

....“[   ]  Jesus said to us: Blessed are the peacemakers, he did not say to us: Blessed are the pacifists [who say] 'Peace is peace at any cost, at any price'. Such an attitude is a pure and simple betrayal of truth,” he said....

Heresies have consequences, people.

"Hey, Raul! Up Yours!!" --Love, Donald

There are probably some NeverTrumpers out there who got the vapors and hit the fainting-couch when The Donald invited Castro to take a long walk off a short pier.  That's to be expected of the Effete Elite.

But actual Americans are cheering.  Trump intends to cure the cancer of the Caribbean, which is a very good thing.  After all, this cancer has metastasized to Nicaragua, Argentina, and Venezuela, and is undoubtedly behind the importation of a sizeable amount of drugs and/or terrorists to the US.

And that regime has killed or imprisoned tens of thousands of its own citizens for such crimes as "being Catholic."  In that particular regard, Bernie Sanders draws inspiration from the Castro Boyzzz, as did the other demi-Communist, Obozo.  (You're a damn fool if you think that's just co-incidence.)

Maybe this push from The Donald will topple that regime.  Maybe not.  But the message is clear.  Let's hope that the Effete Elite didn't hurt themselves hitting their little couches.
