Archie Was Right

Today's news:

Filmmaker and left-wing activist Rob Reiner has declared that all supporters of President Donald Trump are racist

Archie was right.  He's a meathead.

Meanwhile, In Tony Evers' Town.....

Blaska would not make this up.

An especially “woke” soul named Marty Beth Collins, director of the UW Center for Community and Nonprofit Studies, proposes that Trump syndrome sufferers bang pots and pans promptly at 8 p.m. every day until the bad orange man goes away.

Is there some GOOD reason for UW-Madison to have a "Center for Community and Nonprofit Studies"? 

Tony Evers has inhaled Aire d'Madistan for a long time.  That's a fair warning.

The Squad Harpies Barbarians

In an essay on ruins, Fr. Rutler quotes a passage from Hilaire Belloc which I think describes the women now leading the Democrat Party in Congress.

The Barbarian hopes – and that is the mark of him -- that he can have his cake and eat it too. He will consume what civilization has slowly produced after generations of selection and effort, but he will not be at pains to replace such goods, nor indeed has he a comprehension of the virtue that has brought them into being. Discipline seems to him irrational, on which account he is ever marveling that civilization should have offended him with priests and soldiers… In a word, the Barbarian is discoverable everywhere in this, that he cannot make: that he can befog and destroy but that he cannot sustain; and of every Barbarian in the decline or peril of every civilization exactly that has been true.
The masculine pronoun is used in the classical literary sense, albeit Belloc probably never imagined that the Barbarian might be a she-creature.

The USCC's Pet Project (??)

The US Catholic Conference of Bishops has been hammering "No Borders" for the last several months.

That has consequences which the Bishops studiously ignore.

...MS-13 street gangsters from the San Fernando Valley butchered and bludgeoned their rivals with machetes, knives, baseball bats, and pipes in a series of gruesome killings in the Angeles National Forest, according to a federal grand jury indictment unsealed Tuesday…

Other charges include racketeering and drug trafficking, with the MS-13 members also accused of extorting rival gang members, street vendors and business owners – members of local immigrant communities – using violence to intimidate them....
---quoted at Captain's place.

Can the Bishops be that stupid?

Do you really want to know??

Plante On "Contempt of Congress"

It's better to listen to 890-AM at 9:00 in the morning.


Chris Plante.  He has a wicked sense of humor, and uses it a lot.

For example, he thinks that "Contempt of Congress" should be an annual awards show rather than some sort of chargeable offense.

We agree, with the reservation that it's too damned easy to have "contempt of Congress."  Something has to be done to tighten up the minimum entry requirement.

Althouse Is Partly Right on Baltimore

Althouse, who is guardedly friendly to Trump, posts on the Baltimore foogaggle.  This is her summation of Trump's tactic:

Trump keeps up his effort to turn the subject of the day to Baltimore.
Not exactly.

He's using Baltimore (and the reprehensible Cummings) as a metaphor for EVERY (D) district in an effort to detach voters from their (D) Congresscritters.  Note that he's spreading the blame, mentioning Pelosi's poop-loaded Streets of San Francisco.

So it's not "Baltimore," really.  It's "Democrats are screwing you!  What do you have to lose by voting for me???"

"Progressive" Chauffered Limousines?

It is reported that Mandela Barnes, pitcher-of-spit for Wisconsin, praises "progressive" ideas.

Are we to conclude that it is "progressive" for taxpayers to provide LtGov Barnes with a chauffered limousine service?

"Venerable", Not "Aged"

The Ace of Spades provides a signpost. 

But it's not quite complete.  Not only did I listen  to 8-tracks, I listened to reel-to-reels.  And played 78s.

Who Is this "Jenny Martin" Woman?

Back in 2009, when Diamond Jim Doyle was pissing away Wisconsin tax dollars, the Badger Blogger (RIP) and I popped over to Madistan to vent spleen.  Somebody introduced RoJo to the crowd and he gave a somewhat nervous speech.

I still have the Gadsden flag which I purchased for that occasion.

NOW I learn that some woman named "Jenny Martin" is a muckety-muck in a "Tea Party" outfit.  Never heard of her in Madison that April.  So it's surprising to learn that she "runs" the "Tea Party."

Martin co-founded the Tea Party Patriots, the 501 (c) (4) non-profit group started that same year [2009] to promote the three core values of the movement: (1) Constitutionally Limited Government (Personal Freedom),  (2) Free Markets (Economic Freedom), and (3) Fiscal Responsibility (Debt-Free Future).
How nice.  Nice of her to decide what the 'core values' are--and for her to take home seven+ hundred grand in salary for whatever she's doing here.  Except........

If she's knocking down seven+ hundred grand, she's "Establishment."

Chris Wallace Goes Bonkers

It's well-known that Chris Wallace is a brain-dead Lefty, and has been one for decades.

The only 'new' thing is that he's beginning to sound like Nancy Pelosi:  he can no longer smoothly deliver his Little Lord Lefty lines. 

I kinda expected him to drool all over the desk.

On Baltimore

So happens that ZMan is a resident of Baltimore, and he has a couple of handy facts.

...Of course, no one will bother disputing the facts of Trump’s tweets. That’s a dangerous subject that must never be mentioned. Any examination of Baltimore would not only reveal Trump is right, but also reveal those things we all know are true, but are told we must never mention. Baltimore is a black city and the highest crime areas are the blackest areas. For example, 92.9% of those arrested for murder are black and 91% of their victims are black. Crime in Baltimore is a black thing....

Now you know why Gwen Moore has kept her mouth shut about Trump, eh?

Cummings, the Congress-slime from west Baltimore, however, is another matter.  He runs his mouth, despite his wife's shady "charity" which has been a topic of discussion for a few months.  However, Cummings has never encountered someone like Trump, who hits back, twice as hard.

If Elijah has half a brain, he'll STFU.  Or his wife may find herself in front of a Federal grand jury.

Evers' Medical Dope, Or Dopey Evers?

A pal just sent a report from Colorado dealing with the effects of recreational marijuana. 

Of course, our Governor is proposing "medical" mary jane.  Big difference.  Because nobody will ever sell their own medicine, right?


Anyhow, a few highlights which the (D) Party will never think about.

...Since recreational marijuana was legalized,marijuana related traffic deaths increased 151 percent while all Colorado traffic deaths increased 35 percent

...The yearly rate of emergency department visits related to marijuana increased 52 percent after the legalization of recreational marijuana. (2012 compared to 2016) The yearly rate of marijuana-related hospitalizations increased148 percent after the legalization of recreational marijuana. (2012 compared to 2016...

...RMHIDTA Colorado Task Forces (10) conducted 144 investigations of black market marijuana in Colorado resulting in: 239 felony arrests, 7.3 tons of marijuana seized. 43,949 marijuana plants seized, 24 different states the marijuana was destined...
Besides all that, you'll be VERY happy to know that the price of doobies has gone down while the potency has gone up.  Happy, that is, if  you're a dipshit in the Governor's office.

The Latest in Gun Control Lying

Zelman Partisans is a very good source of info, and it's named after a great Wisconsin man!!


I found a copy of the latest gun control paper, Firearm Ownership and Domestic Versus Nondomestic Homicide in the U.S., the summary of which I found troubling.

Oh. My.
You can read his analysis (dismemberment is a better word) of this "study" on your own.

Suffice it to say that AGW has better statistical modeling (Ding!! Ding!!!) than the guns piece.

Next Time I Hear RoJo Wailing About....

Sen. Ron Johnson has confirmed that "Russians" are 'interfering' with our elections. 

Next time RoJo brings that up, someone should ask "What side is Google on, Ron?"

The wackjob Democrats swear that the Russians hacked, packed, and stacked the election for Trump.  So are we allowing Google to do the same for Warren?  Bernie?  Buttplug?  Just to keep it even?

It's also a fact that Russia did not penetrate ANY ballot boxes, nor change ANY votes, by the way.

Drive-By. Dumbass. Dead.

Yes, Darwin's Law is still in force.

A 26-year-old man has died after he was accidentally shot by a passenger in his own vehicle on the city’s South Side...Prosecutors said Gibson was driving around 5:40 a.m. Sunday on the first block of West 71st Street in the Park Manor neighborhood, when he pulled up next to a white SUV. Lee, who was the front seat passenger, began firing at the SUV and accidentally shot Gibson in the head....

But he was a good boy.  Everybody liked him.  He was turning his life around.  Yadayada......

HT:  Arms/Law

Old: AGW. New: Sargassum

Sargassum seaweed is being written up as the new horror.  It might not replace anthropogenic global warming (AGW), but hey!!  Squirrel!!!  Better than you rubes and clingers reading about MuellerFail.

Unfortunately, the "news" is--as usual--totally lacking in historical perspective.

You want an intelligent discussion of the problem?  Look at the combox in Peter's post.

Voices in Joe Walsh's Head....

On occasion, I drive through Chicago and listen to AM radio.  On the way to Larry Elder's hour, there is a speed-bump named Joe Walsh.  It's what you get.  Oh, well.

The other night Walsh, who apparently despises Donald Trump, proclaimed that Mitch McConnell was blocking legislation which would keep Russia from interfering with US elections.  (Sure.  The Russkies will go away quietly.  And rain falls up on Walsh's planet where the sky is green.)

More:  Walsh tells his listeners that McConnell is blocking this stuff because it makes Trump feel better--that Trump is SO megalomaniacal that talk of Russians and elections would set him off....

Oddly enough, that's exactly the line. pushed by Known Perjurer Clapper and some DC camp-follower named Dana Milbank.

To these people, the Russians actually DID elect Donald Trump.  Unfortunately that's not remotely close to true, and Federalizing the elections is the real goal here, so people like Clapper, Milbank, Comey, and the Striped-Pants worshipers at American Conservative can "assist" us in our voting.

THOSE are the voices in Walsh's head.  But they may not be the only ones--fair warning if you listen to AM in Chicago, friends.

Humor Break

Copped from PowerLine.  (There are LOTS more at the link)

Making a Fool of Trump

There are some things about which Trump knows zero.  Nada.  Zilch.  And he was suckered into one of those just this year.

When the FIRST STEP act was making its way through Congress, its advocates claimed that only “non-violent” federal prisoners would be released from prison early. By non-violent felons they meant, in essence, drug dealers, as opposed to, say, murderers, rapists, and armed robbers....

...Contrary to what they promised, their law is letting violent offenders out of prison early....
The law was written very badly--maybe Kim Kardashian or Jared Kushner drafted it?  As a result, "good time" was credited to EVERY Fed prisoner, not just the "non-violent" ones.

So make sure your doors are locked and you have defensive firepower available.

Thanks, Donald and Jared!!  Thanks, Kim, you dumb-ass babe.

Roversing L-R Polarity

Z-man notices what's going on and lays it out.

One of the funny things about this age is how the political poles seem to be swapping positions on a great many issues. The Right, for example, is now more concerned with the plight of the working man than the Left, while the Left is a fanatical defender of global capitalism....
 Oh, yes, that's true.

...Conservatism, properly understood, was always skeptical of capitalism, because it tended to destroy indiscriminately. Bulldozing a church to build a processing center may be a more efficient use of resources, but conservatives always knew the altar was the keystone of civilization, not the factory....
Even MORE true.

On the other hand, we have the current edition of The Left.

...Thinking of the American Left, at least the old Protestant aspects of it, as a theodicy, is a good way to understand why the people who used to sport Darwin fish on their Volvo are now extreme science deniers...
Gay "marriage", along with Tranny Thought, come to mind.  It's not different from the Truth-Denial of Jerry Nadler vis-a-vis Trump, although the premise is far less significant in Nadler's case.

Z-man's conclusion is a bit dark.

Along the way, he mentions the primal fallacy of both Left and (political) Right:

...The left-wing science deniers are playing the antagonist role of the Church and the humans sciences are in the protagonist role. This is probably comforting to the empirically minded, as it suggests they will eventually triumph in the end. Not only is this a faulty reading of history, particularly the Church, it assumes that human progress is inevitable. That no matter what they do, the march of science will continue unabated....
Anyone who claims that "human progress" has taken place only has to look at the murder rates around the world, or even in Chicago, Baltimore, and Atlanta.  Yes, the US rates are 'better' than in Somalia, Congo, Iran, and Niger--but only if you exclude abortion. 

"Better," eh?  That's "progress."


What Changed in Only 90 Years?

Having been in three different parish churches during this summer, NONE of which were of the 'wacko-Cath' persuasion, I've often been shocked over what I've seen women and teen-aged girls wearing and not wearing in the nave.

I'll spare you any descriptions, but I am certain that none of the Kardashians are members of these congregations, even though their fashions certainly are present.

Anyhow, only 90-ish years ago, there was this.  What changed??

How To Get Killed on a Scooter

Dumbassery grips the "minds" of the yout's.  You might even call it a 'death-grip.'

In a story discussing the Milwaukee scooters being found in the nearby suburbs, we see this:

...One man said he collected four electric scooters in Milwaukee so he and his friends could go bar hopping in West Allis.

"They're just really fun to ride, they're really affordable," he said.

The man asked not to be identified.

"We want to go to some local bars around here, so I grabbed a couple of scooters and put them in my car, and we're just gonna hop on them afterwards because we're gonna be drinking and stuff and don't want to drive the vehicles," he said....

Because being a drunken driver on a scooter is SO much safer than being a drunken driver in a car, right, dumbass?

I don't know if the Nashville victim (see link above) was sober or drunk, but I do know that in a 'Chevy Suburban vs. Scooter' contest, there IS a loser, and it's not the Suburban.

The Picture of Dorian Mueller-Ford

Stolen from AOSHQ.  Yes, indeed, this is the poor bastard (lawyer) who proved beyond a doubt that he had no idea what in Hell he was talking about.

FIFTY MILLION DOLLARS' worth of doddering old fool.  When Jim Sensenbrenner can run circles around you, mentally, you should have hung it up a few years ago.

Who Writes This Crap?

Trump Kills RV Industry.  Women, Children, Indiana Hardest Hit.

Yah.  That's the story.  Rrrrrrrrrrrright.

...Domestic shipments of RVs to dealers have plummeted 22% in the first five months of this year, compared to the same period last year, after dropping 4% in 2018, according to the Recreational Vehicle Industry Association.

The RV industry's crisis shows how President Trump's trade war has backfired, hurting the industry he promised to protect.

Tariff-related price hikes have forced RV manufacturers to pass on costs to dealerships, which in turn the American consumer bears the brunt of the tariff, has slowed sales at dealers who are cutting orders and laying off workers....
It's all Trump's fault.

Or--in RealityLand, where most of us live, one might have noticed the hundreds of unsold RV's piled up in dealer lots LAST SUMMER, which suggests that RV manufacturers just may have over-estimated demand.  By about 20% or so.

Wait, wait!!!  There is ONE mid-level drone who is certain it's Trump!!

..."The tariff price increases are what tipped the RV business — it started the landslide, no question," said Tom Bond, the materials and purchasing manager at Adnik Manufacturing, an Elkhart-based division of Norco Industries....
OK, then.  It's all Trump.

Or--just a thought--you could source all that stuff in the USA instead, you rummy.

NOT The Onion!

From Rorate Coeli:

America magazine, the journal of the U.S. Jesuits, has just published an essay by its Toronto correspondent entitled "The Catholic Case for Communism."

Like I said:  NOT the Onion.

Yup. Follow the Money

Mueller and Comey make quite a pair, especially when Mueller is feeding Comey's employer $$Bazillion contracts........and Comey "earns" a $6 million bonus.

But Comey is not 'friends' with Mueller.


Send Her Home To Prison

It appears that Ms Omar will have a challenging near-term future.

"Substantial, compelling and, to date, unrefuted evidence has been uncovered that Rep. Ilhan Omar may have committed the following crimes in violation of both federal law and Minnesota state law: perjury, immigration fraud, marriage fraud, state and federal tax fraud, and federal student loan fraud." --Complaint of Judicial Watch quoted at ZeroHedge

Since the House is controlled by the Democrats, you can expect ZERO meaningful action at the House Ethics Committee.  Or maybe not:  recall that Omar has set herself against Nancy.

If not there, perhaps some US Attorney could be interested.

Pritzker, Crown, Bazelon: All Mobbed Up

Ron Unz did a bit of light reading lately, and has become very familiar with the Mobs of Chicago and California.

In his 13,000 word essay (gasp!) he reviews two books by Gus Russo:  The Outfit and Supermob.  With that reading, he learned something important:  much of the Mob was run by Russian Jews who had immigrated to the US.  The Italians did the 'wet' work.  The Russkis?  The brain stuff.

You've heard of General Dynamics?  Mobbed up.  The Pritzker family?  "Family," indeed.  Crown Cork & Seal?  Mob, as was its predecessor, Chicago Sand and Gravel.

How about that Kennedy victory in the '60 election--gained in Chicago?  Or that assassination in November '63?  Pat Brown in California?  Yup.  Truman in K.C.?  Of course!

Oh, yes, Judge Bazelon, Chief of the DC Circuit.  He made a fortune by disposing of the assets seized from the Japanese by Roosevelt during WWII.  And he parlayed that into a nice, comfy, judge-job, for which he was eminently un-qualified.

Read the article.

Notice That Rush Is Flogging More Products?

Not that long ago, Limbaugh personally promoted a product or two with not-very-frequent commercials.  Now it's nearly non-stop, from his $27.76 tee-shirt (yes, that was NOT a typo) to ultra-expensive sheets, stopping along the way for home-security systems and the ever-more-rare caller, unless that caller is ALSO flogging one of the products.

It's been rumored that his audience is falling off.  Perhaps that 'splains all this.  

Boehner (R-Dopers) and Crowley (D-Entitled)....Sheesh

Don Surber discovers the most interesting tidbits.

"Former House Speaker John Boehner and former Rep. Joe Crowley are joining forces in a bipartisan effort to combat a looming pension crisis affecting nearly 1.3 million American retirees 

They are 'multi-employer' pension plans; the ones in trouble are almost exclusively Teamster plans.

Surber acidly notes that both Boehner--a 'legal dope' advocate---and Crowley--who lost his ass position to AOC--are both guaranteed a VERY fat pension and that it's 'very nice' for them to actually give a damn about real people.

One may argue that the Teamsters' programs were far too generous, of course.  And one may also argue that Boehner's cavalier attitude towards Medicare/Medicaid abuse-and-fraud created a lot more problems than multi-employer pension plans.

But hey!  Nobody else in Congress gives a flipping damn, either.

What the Establishment REALLY Wants

VDHanson discovers the true desire of the Ruling-Class.

...Bret Stephens of the New York Times: “So-called real Americans are screwing up America. Maybe they should leave, so that we can replace them with new and better ones: newcomers who are more appreciative of what the United States has to offer, more ambitious for themselves and their children, and more willing to sacrifice for the future. In other words, just the kind of people we used to be—when ‘we’ had just come off the boat.”

Columnist Max Boot narrowed the theme somewhat by suggesting only Republican lawmakers and grandees should be deported and replaced. “If only we could keep the hard-working Latin American newcomers and deport the contemptible Republican cowards—that would truly enhance America’s greatness,” Boot wrote. That’s harsh. At least Chris Hayes only wishes to destroy the Trump base with love and compassion in his heart....
Well, under the rubric that it is better to sacrifice ONE for the benefit of all, maybe American citizens should nudge that a bit, and sacrifice TWO for the benefit of all:  Bret Stephens and Max Boot.

I think that's a good bargain for all of us.

They Never Call Him "Stalin". Why?

Trump is Hitler, say the MSM and most high-viz Democrats.

They never call him "Stalin."

There's a reason.  Stalin is their hero. 

Yes, Stalin killed about 10X the people Hitler killed, but that's pish-posh.  They were just "people", ya'know.  Therefore, Stalin was the first Highly Successful Communist Dictator.

And THAT is why they call Trump "Hitler."  Stalin is their hero.

Was Epstein Israel's Asset?

Ed Margolis is no twenty-something "journalist" twit.  He's been around, covering intel matters, for decades.

And he has thoughts about Epstein's real enterprise.  It would certainly explain the ultra-large "seed money" Epstein had.

As to his sources of annual income...are you THAT stupid?? 

HT:  Ticker

Follow the Money, Folks

The PJ's Tyler O'Neil 'splains why all those useless s^%tstain twinks are running for President.

And he's decidedly non-partisan, too.



Why Trump? What's National Conservatism?

Let's see if Charlie clutches his pearls and faints over this bill of particulars.

In America, the nationalist claim is that the federal government has abdicated basic responsibilities and broken trust with large numbers of citizens:

• It has failed to secure the national borders and provide regular procedures for immigration and assimilation.

• It has delegated lawmaking to foreign and international bodies, and domestic bureaucracies, that have scant regard for the interests and values of many of our fellow citizens.

• It has acquiesced in, or actively promoted, the splintering of the nation into contending racial, religious and other groups and has favored some at the expense of others.

• It has neglected core American principles and traditions—separation of powers, due process, the presumption of innocence, local prerogative, freedom of association—allowing them to atrophy or be subjected to political conditions.
--quoted at Grim's place

The list is damning.  But I'd be willing to bet that every damn Democrat president-candidate will affirm the eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeevillllll of this declaration, and go on to condemn it as RRRRaaaaaaaaaaaaayyyyyycissssssssssss, Homophobe, Nativist, and sssssssssssssextisssss!

Especially Sykes, over there in Mequon or Fox Point, or wherever it's 90+++% white upper-middle-class.

Omar, Charlie Sykes' Heroine

Good ol' Charlie Sykes finds that Trump's condemnation of Ilhan Omar's policy stands are--get this--"Rrrrrrrraaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaayissssss!" and Sykes moves on to condemn any Republicans who do NOT condemn Trump.

Since this little moral lesson is printed in the Jesuit rag which has been subversive since the mid-1960's, we are not shocked.  (By the way, the rag is currently "at-large" edited by a priest who is unwilling to condemn flagrantly active perverts who are ordained priests, bishops, and cardinals of the Church.  Maybe he should read Sykes' Little Essay on Moral Righteousness, too.)


Here's the Ilhan Omar whose POLICIES AND STATEMENTS draw justifiable ire from the President and from his supporters.


Of course, once you've seen this, you will be a Rrrrrrrrrrrraaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaycisssssssssssssss!! and Charlie--from his expansive domicile in 95.5%-white Fox Point or Mequon (whatever), will condemn you.

The Democrats' New Leaders

Ms. Kelly of Chicago defines the Democrat leadership.

One is an ungrateful refugee from a war-torn African nation who consistently demeans the country that saved her and her family. Another is a foul-mouthed historical illiterate who called the president a “motherf—er” and vowed to impeach him the very night she was sworn in as a new congresswoman. Yet another is a camera-hungry drama queen who injects gender, race, and nationality into every political debate because she can’t win on the merits of her argument. And one represents a congressional seat once held by John F. Kennedy and, on the night of her primary victory, called the president a “racist, misogynistic, truly empathy-bankrupt man.”...

...As the squad tells it, white men are villains and captors, and white supremacists lurk in every corner of America. The plight of illegal immigrants is more important than the plight of working-class citizens in the Midwest. And the United States is a menace to the world. Earlier this week, Omar mocked the notion of “America the Great” and confessed she is “ashamed of . . . continuing to live in [America’s] hypocrisy.”...
Move aside, Chuckles and Nancy (and Joe, and Lizzie, and Cory, and Beetle, and Buttplug.....)

Sure, they're just bratty broads carrying the Communist Manifesto in their bags--and most American citizens are revolted or perhaps amused.

But they're all yours, Democrats!!  Congrats.  And for those twits:  GFY.

Summing It Up

Stolen from PowerLine

"Noose" Story in Brookfield. Really?

Anything's possible.  Therefore, it's possible that some yahoo tossed a noose into a tree in Brookfield near the home of a black family. 

This is a family which demands a lot of attention, too.  In the first story on the matter, the father and son each stated that questions should be addressed to the family lawyer.

Really?  A lawyer?  Was some member of the Press asking tough questions?  (I know....but we can dream, no?)

So after a couple of days being out of the news-cycle, the family calls a presser and states that the Brookfield cop-shop is dismissing their "RRRRRRRRRRAAAAAAAAAAAAYcisssss!!"  claim.  After all, Brookfield is about 95% white or Asian.  So it MUST be racist.

Umnnnhh....no.  Actually, the Brookfield cop shop has what normal people call "priorities."  Robberies, armed robberies, stolen cars, burglaries, shoplifting, DUI's, check/bank frauds, vandalism.  The usual. 

Bottom line:  this family thinks it was "dissed" and is not getting front-page top-of-the-fold coverage of their anguish like Jussie Smollett did.

Gee.  Why did THAT name come to mind?

Whence Trump's "Flight 93" Election?

Look around the intertubes and you'll find a great deal of discussion about the recent 'conservative conference' held in D.C.  ZMan has a couple of reports, as does Federalist,  and The Stream chimes in, too.  Zman's reporting differs from that of the others, by the way.  He's a bit more 'E Michael Jones' on the event regarding the Jewish influence.  But all three of the reporters directly or indirectly brought up 'the Oligarchies', and not favorably.  (See update below!!)

Both Federalist and The Stream concentrated on the 'social conservative' aspects of the event.  Both decried the Libertarian-influenced lassitude of the Republicans on matters which are consequential:  family and morals, which lassitude has dominated Republican party policy and poohbahs since GHWBush.  What's been the focus instead?  Money.  Making more, no matter how.

Federalist wrote up a lecture by J D Vance which they loved; they also sent kudos to Tucker Carlson.  The criticism of the GOP was acerbic.

...The GOP is hardly libertarian in foreign policy, as it has been hawkish about idiotic wars for the last two decades. It is hardly conservative in domestic politics, where it has accepted the sexual revolution, porn, and drug use as inevitable.

The GOP has, in fact, perpetuated a mix of the worst of two worlds, when average American (and Western) citizens would prefer exactly the opposite: a bit more state authority in the technology sector and in drug enforcement, a bit more cultural chauvinism and pride in Western culture, a bit more balance in upholding societal norms, and a bit less interventionism abroad. With the Western left disintegrating, this is a perfect time for the GOP to take up those platforms, but that requires policy formulations, not polemics.

Ultimately, this appears to be a return to a more old-fashioned conservatism, one aimed at harnessing authority to maximize social good. The broad coalition between libertarians and conservatives might still exist on foreign policy, which is returning to its noninterventionist roots, but in domestic politics, the rift seems inevitable....
If the red-highlighted text looks familiar, it should:  that's basically Trump's platform.  His election was not some sort of freakish Black Swan event at all, friends; in the primaries, it was a rejection of standard Republican/Libertarian/Corporatism/Adventurism.  And in the general, it was a rejection of  standard Democrat/Libertine/Welfare-ism/MonsterGov/Amorality.

It was the "Flight 93" election:  with no other option, crash into the pilot's cabin and attack.

Exactly what the voters did.

UPDATE:  Crisis' Austin Ruse also wrote it up.  But I don't have time right now.....except for this:

T...his new coalition does not want the federal government that small or to leave us alone. It wants government involved in fixing specific societal pathologies, including all those Mary mentioned and many more. J.D. Vance of Hillbilly Elegy fame was explicit in this, as was Tucker Carlson, and many others....
...which should whet your appetite to read the whole thing.)

Is Ilhan "Omar" REALLY an "Omar"?

Maybe this little harpy is 'more American' than some others.  (I doubt it, but...)

But the real question is this:  is she more "Omar" than other Omars?

Tucker Carlson:

..."David Steinberg spent a decade as PJ Media's New York editor. He has been closely investigating Ilhan Omar's background for years since she entered public life," Carlson began. "He's cultivated sources within the Minnesota Somali community. He knows as much about Omar's background as any reporter could know....

...Carlson continued: "And then he makes this stunning allegation, sourced to members of the Minneapolis Somali community: 'In 1995 Ilhan entered the United States as a fraudulent member of the Omar family. That is not her family. The Omar family is a second unrelated family which was being granted asylum by the United States. The Omars allowed Ilhan, her genetic sister Sahra, and her genetic father Nur Said to use false names to apply for asylum as members of the Omar family. Ilhan's genetic family split up at this time. Ilhan's three other siblings, using their real names, managed to get asylum in the United Kingdom.'"...
She's stonewalling the MSM on the question.  Who wouldn't?

Larger question:  when will INS start running DNA tests on every immigrant?

Ilhan Omar Lies: Muslim or Politician?

It's a commonplace that politicians lie, and we also know that the Koran 'authorizes' lying by Muslims.

So when Ilhan Omar lies about her marriage to her brother for immigration fraud purposes, then files false Fed and State tax returns claiming to be married to someone else at the same time.......

Is it Muslim?  or is it Politician??  Only Allah knows for sure.

Send her back.

Larison Loves Him Some Muslim Communist

The Striped-Pants Wannabee wackdoodle (he has a Ph.D., you know) loves him some Muslima-Communist.

He starts by quoting a Dreher lie.

...And now, on the right, we have the man with the biggest megaphone in the country leading a mob in chanting for the expulsion of a political opponent...--Dreher, inventing 'leading a ...chant...'
And he's off!!  (UPDATE:  Trump says he 'disagrees' with that chant.)  

Here's Larison's next orgasm of lying:

...Trump’s lies about and attacks on Rep. Omar over the last several days are of a piece with his hostility to Muslims and his contempt for refugees and immigrants. He has made a point of targeting her on account of her race and religion.....
Like anyone else who can see TeeVee and read Twitter, it is clear that "race" was never, ever, a part of Trump's game here.  And of course, Trump--like any Christian or Jew--is sensibly concerned with SOME Muslims.  The ones who take the Koran seriously, the ones who attack the USA or its allies, the ones who are killing and raping Catholics all over Africa, the ones who threaten our overseas allies.........and there are more.

And since Omar has NEVER condemned AlQuaeda, nor the 9/11 attacks--and has a website chock-ful of class warfare, a Marxist/Communist flag if there ever was one, and further, since Trump is contemptuous of ILLEGAL immigrants and FRAUDULENT refugees......

Some people are educated way beyond their intelligence.  Larison, Ph.D., joins +Rembert Weakland in that group.

Oh, well.  Maybe Larison could go to Somalia, solve the problems, there, and THEN come back here and show us how it's done.  Anyone want to contribute to airline tix?

Mainstream Democrat Opines on Trump Supporters

This "Joe Lockhart" creature is a mainstream Democrat mouth.  He's not one of the Communists or Jihadi-ettes in Congress; he's a Pelosi-Schumer-Clinton 'crat.

Consider that as you read what he has to say about Trump supporters.

...Lockhart not only attacked Trump and his administration, he also viciously attacked Trump supporters attending Wednesday night’s reelection campaign rally in Greenville, North Carolina, calling then an “angry crowd of resentful, uneducated people screaming for blood from the people of color who are stealing everything from them.”...
OK, that deserves a considered response, and here it is:

GFY, Joe.

The Sorry State of Catcechisis in Milwaukee

We have here a blogpost from a woman who claims to be Catholic.  First graf:

Sleep still in my eyes, hair a la Anna on Elsa’s coronation day, groggily to my husband I stammered, “If an estimated 30 to 60 percent of Catholic priests are gay, what would happen if they all came out together? I mean, the Catholic Church would either have to deal or crumble. They already don’t have enough priests - look how they’re combining churches all over the place. Don’t the priests see the power they have together? And is it not their duty to themselves, to us all, Catholics or not, to live truthfully and to love like Jesus? What if, 50 years after the Stonewall Riots, Catholic priests of all sexualities finally had enough support to stand together, hand-in-hand, unwilling to be oppressed any longer?”...
 "....of ALL sexualities?"  How many are there?   

And who the hell wakes up with that question on their alleged 'mind'?  

One more thing:  do you "oppress" your priest if he's a homosexual?

You're thinking what I thought:  "Oh, really?  Catholic??"

Caption under a picture:

Father Greg Greiten Performs Catholic Mass of Inclusion

Yah.  That line confirms it.  If this woman is Catholic, she's either the most mal-formed "Catholic" within 200 miles, or............wait for it..........she's lying.

No Catholic priest "performs Mass."  And there is no Catholic "Mass of Inclusion."

Catholics who know the landscape in Milwaukee also know all about Good Shepherd parish.  The founding pastor was--arguably--the first major material heretic-pastor in the Archdiocese.  I know that because the guy was a shirt-tail relative of mine.  But his family had money, so +Cousins, Weakland's predecessor, ..........ahhh..........overlooked..........the problem priest.  The church building was designed to be Lutheran:  there is no Real Presence in the nave AT ALL.

There are no coincidences.  And--once again--we note that there is no public statement from our Archbishop, "Kitten" Listecki.

God help us.

"Leadership" From Abp. Listecki

For the second time in very recent memory, the Dominican nuns of Racine, WI., will be hosting a homosexual event.  They call it a "retreat."  OK, sure, whatever......

The last one featured a priest of the Milwaukee Archdiocese who is infamous for material heresy.  Abp. Listecki was warned about him (and all the other homosex problems) but still cannot find the courage to tell the nuns to go back to where they came from.  This one features a retired priest (D.C.) who works part-time as an (illegal-immigration) lawyer for Catholic Charities.  (Think about THAT, friends.)

...Church Militant reached out to the archdiocese of Milwaukee for comment about their approval of the retreat scheduled within their jurisdiction. Amy Grau, the communication director for the archdiocese, said: "The Archdiocese of Milwaukee is not connected to this event. In addition, there has been concern that the Racine Dominicans allowed their retreat center to be used by a group [New Ways Ministry] censured by the Church."...

Oh, wow!!  "Concern"!!!!  

Is that like when Mommy asks if you've brushed your teeth before bed?

Shouldn't it be more like "You're going straight to Hell if you keep this up, and you're taking  MY ARCHDIOCESE with you!!  Now get thee away from here, Satan!"

This Archbishop is a commissioned officer in the US Army.  The US Army should take a hard look at its standards for leaders.

Ripping the Church's Fabric

Mgr. Bux is not some wackdoodle standing on the corner screeching that "the end is near."  He's a heavyweight theologian with CDF experience.

So when he talks, listen.

...“Jesus Christ came to bring God to earth, so that man might find the way to heaven: that is why he founded the Church,” the Italian Monsignor said. “Instead, today’s clerics take care of the earth as if it were man’s permanent and lasting home. What is the symptom? They do not speak of the soul and therefore of its salvation.”

Msgr. Bux further noted that ideas once “denounced” by Joseph Ratzinger (as prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith) are now “coming to maturity” with the Amazon Synod.
“The Church is no longer considered the Mystical Body of Christ and the People of God oriented toward salvation, but a sociological phenomenon; thus it must deal with economics, ecology and politics, where at most it could intervene only for a moral judgment,” Msgr. Bux said.

He added that, under the influence of modernism, proponents of these ideas claim that “times have changed” and with them, “a new dogma” is needed. Yet he pointed out “this doesn’t answer the questions: who decided that times have changed? And is change always good?”...
That was the general case.  More specifically, it's the Jungle Synod...

....Speaking to the working document’s use of “inculturation,” Msgr. Bux said “it is presented in an inverted way: the intention is to return the Church in the Amazon to animism and spiritualism, making it withdraw from the Word that was announced to it through evangelization. ‘A natural religion with a Christian mask,’ as Cardinal Brandmüller said in his recent statement.”

Asked about the working document’s praise for the “cosmovision” of indigenous peoples, Msgr. Bux said it represents a “blurring of reason” and a return to “natural religion” and “spiritualism.”...
What we are seeing, before our very eyes, is the creation of a schism, largely engineered by the Rhine, with the opening salvo fired at the Second Vatican Council.  The Tiber has now become polluted with that flow.

The Church will survive, of course, but Ratzinger's "smaller, purer" may be the description that applies. 

Doh Nooooz = Doh Stupids

Headline found on WTMJ/Channel 4 site this morning:

15 people arrested and large amounts of heroine and cocaine seized in multi-agency raid

Oh.  How many heroines are "large amounts"?  And which agencies "sieze" heroines?

Yah, I know that The Nooz cannot afford to hire adults any more.  But don't they have ONE editor left who knows the English language?

Ryan Takes a Drubbing

There are plenty of people who don't think highly of Paul Ryan.  Read the combox here.

Contrary to Belling--and Weber--Trump's Ploy Worked

The Never-Trumper Jay Weber squealed like a stuck pig.  Belling went 'sophisticated' and declared that although Trump's comments were not racist, they actually WERE racist.  (I guess that proves that the self-described Analytical Mind never heard of the principle of non-contradiction, eh?)


...Trump has flaunted his scorn for the media-defined norms of the American political conversation. Under those informal rules, Republicans can be labeled racists with impunity, and America can be trashed as irredeemably racist, evil, and shameful. But any criticism of "people of color" for expressing such views is racist, as Nancy Pelosi discovered so recently....

...He also knows that people who already believe him to be a vulgar, racist, unacceptable "occupant of the White House" (as Ilhan Omar called him yesterday, unwilling to concede that he is a lawfully elected president) will criticize anything he says. So there is no loss to him in provoking more criticism from that camp.

The key group that he must worry about are the undecided voters who swing elections and the vaunted suburban women, who shun harshness and who live in neighborhoods where Trump may be less than popular. Plus all those conservatives who have gritted their teeth and supported him, even though his style is alien to their own....

So what happened next?  The targets showed up on national TeeVee, doing exactly what The President expected them to do.  They would NOT condemn AlQuaeda, declared everyone who favors borders to be "racist," and generally managed to alienate 'the persuadables.'  In addition:

Trump has forced [the House Democrats] back together and made The Squad the public face of the Democrats.
So.  The remarks were NOT "racist."  Yes, they were designed to force a reaction--and they got it.  Now Pelosi is embracing four Communists, one of which will NOT condemn Muslim terrorism, the others of which want "open borders."  See Surber's clear vision on Trump's chess-game here.

And Weber and Belling?  Left in the dust, squealing and Analyzing.

UPDATE:  Now The Analyzer claims that there will be "NO political impact" from this episode.  Gee, that's a tough call, Mark.  Unless there is an earthquake, no Democrat will defeat Trump next year.  So he keeps his skirts clean and makes a bet that he almost cannot lose.  Watch him play this back next November and claim to be a genius.

Where "Coexist" Is Not

Saw one of those stupid "Coexist" bumper stickers again today.

Here's a list of countries in which "coexistence" is not present.


That's where the Muslims are killing non-Muslims wholesale.

Watch your back, friends.

Is Tucker Channeling E Michael Jones?

You should be familiar with Tucker Carlson.  In January, he unloaded on the economic structure in this country which is ripping families apart.

A couple of days ago, he gave a speech at a gathering of conservatives and re-stated the theme from his January tirade.

Then he added this:

...Carlson continued to explain that when the left praises topics like abortion due to their economic benefits, what they really mean is that “unencumbered by concerns of family and children, women can become obedient servants to global capitalism.”...

That comes straight from the E Michael Jones playbook; just ask Mike about "The Oligarchs" sometime, or read his book "Libido Dominandi" wherein he explains exactly how the Oligarchs get control over a large chunk of the West.

Jones is strong medicine; one may not like all his opinions.  But he's identified the bad guys pretty well, and whether by co-incidence or not, Tucker found the same people under the same rock.


The Attack of the Striped-Pants Set

The Striped-Pants bunch is the largest single redoubt of the "America Last" crowd.  They have lots of domestic camp-followers (such as Larison), and since they influence US spending, there are plenty of 'friends' they can call on overseas. 

Like, for example, in Guatemala.

A high-ranking Guatemalan government official told Breitbart News that the U.S. Department of State in that country is working with leftist organizations to allow President Donald Trump’s proposed “safe country” asylum agreement to die....

Gee.  We're shocked. 

...The Guatemalan official said that State Department officials in his country have been working with NGOs and hardcore leftists funded by George Soros to undermine efforts by the Trump administration to deal with the crisis along the U.S. southern border.

“We have been working well with the Department of Homeland Security, the Department of Defense, and the U.S. intel community,” the official explained. “But the State Department is another issue altogether.”

The official continued, “Leftists in our country do not work in a vacuum. They work closely with Democrats in the U.S. and the liberal media to attack President Trump and make President Morales look bad.”...
Never identify a problem without offering a solution!!

So here's a solution:  1)  Replace all embassy personnel, worldwide, with Marine Corps enlisted men.  Toss in a few random Seals and Army Rangers for variety.

2)  Post a Gadsden Flag (see right-hand column here) at every embassy door, right under the US flag.

3)  Announce that going forward, the U.S. will consider its own interests first, second, and third.  Other countries may take whatever's left over.

4)  Let the Striped-Pants folks retire anyplace but the USA.  Eritrea, Zimbabwe, South Africa, and Somalia come to mind.  That way they can live in the s*&^holes they seem to prefer--and as a bonus, they might be living next-door to AOC or Ilhan Omar or George Clooney.

Finally, never recruit new State personnel from ANY Ivy League college again.  Never, ever.

Seth Rich, Another 'Arkancide'?

Remember Seth Rich?  It appears that he's related to Vince Foster, in the most gruesome way.

A rather stunning report from Gateway Pundit outlines information contained within a lawsuit filing.  The lawsuit, filed by Businessman Ed Butowsky, alleges Wikileaks founder Julian Assange confirmed to Fox News analyst Ellen Ratner that the DNC leaked emails were received from Seth Rich and his brother Aaron.

The details contained within the lawsuit filing (full pdf below) are stunning.

If this information is true and accurate, the DOJ claim of a Russian hack –based on assertions by DNC contractor, Crowdstrike– would be entirely false.  Additionally the DC murder of Seth Rich would hold a far more alarming motive....
Next thing you know, Epstein will turn out to be a majority owner of a pizza joint in D.C.

Communism Runs in Omar's Family

When Lindsey Graham called Ilhan Omar a Communist, he wasn't kidding.

...Representative Omar’s father, was a party propagandist under the dictator and was responsible for ‘ideological’ aspects of the Red-Green revolution. This included providing the ideological/political justification for the massacres of the late eighties....
(Like that "red" effect?  I thought so.)

Anyhow, her Commie Daddy is also an illegal; he lied about this Communist history to get into the country.

Another one who should go back to where he came from!

Pius XII and Altar Girls

Pius XII's writings on the liturgy are something of a mixed blessing.  He was clear as crystal on certain principles which were in the 1958 Instruction written under his authority.

But on one matter, he has caused difficulty, according to Dom Alcuin Reed.  In an address to the Church Music Association of America (CMAA), Reed teaches about who has what authority vis-a-vis the liturgy.

...The ministry of the Pope, therefore, is one of obedience to the Word of God. In respect of the Sacred Liturgy, this ministry is exercised, as the Catechism teaches, in the obedience of faith and with religious respect for the mystery of the liturgy. “The Pope is not an absolute monarch whose thoughts and desires are law.” Mutatis mutandis, neither is any bishop, priest, deacon, MC, Musical Director, liturgy committee or any other group or individual, no matter what their position or expertise.
This brings us face to face with the second element of what is taught in paragraph 1125 of the Catechism: “the obedience of faith” and “religious respect for the mystery of the liturgy” that must be shown by all, from the Pope down.

Earlier I asserted that there was a disturbing issue in respect of Pope Pius XII’s exegesis of the premise lex orandi, lex credendi in Mediator Dei whereby he asserts that it is the rule of belief which determines the rule of prayer, and not the other way around. When this was published in 1947 the dangers inherent in this reversal may not have been all that apparent. Sadly, they have become all to clear in the ensuing decades.

For if the Sacred Liturgy (its rites, prayers, chants, and associated arts, etc.) are a “a constitutive element of the holy and living Tradition,” this organism, as handed on in tradition, is itself an essential source for experiencing the Faith and for knowing and reflecting upon what we believe: the Sacred Liturgy is itself theologia prima.5 However, if what we believe determines the rule of prayer, the liturgy can (or ought to) be refashioned according to changes in theology so as to reflect the latter. It is no longer a primary source of theology, but its mirror....
You see the problem?  It's ......ahhh.........interesting enough with mal-formed diocesan priests (or shudder, Jesuits) who put their theological twisties into the liturgy.  But it's even more interesting when the occupant of the Chair of Peter seems to favor a new "green" theology.  Or a "liberation" theology.    How will THAT be expressed in the Mass?

That aside, Pius XII's reversal was easy to see in the results even before "green" theo.  Benedict XVI is quoted here to explain how the silliness came about:

...A neo-scholastic sacramental theology which is disconnected from the living form of the Liturgy. On that basis, people might reduce the “substance” to the matter and form of the sacrament, and say: Bread and wine are the matter of the sacrament, the words of institution are its form. Only these two things are really necessary, everything else is changeable.6...
In other words, reductionism.  Remember hearing about "useless accretions and repetitions"?

And Reed goes on to the logical conclusion:

... if one can reduce the Sacraments to valid matter and the correct form in one’s mind, one may ignore, disdain or even abuse the rites that surround them. The liturgical rites become incidentals and are therefore unimportant in themselves. They contain no authority in their own right and certainly demand no serious respect. They may be reduced, refashioned, replaced or dispensed according to the prevailing theological and ideological trends of a given time, whether that be by popes or their commissars, by episcopal conferences, local bishops, priests or lay liturgical potentates....
Thus we saw altar girls, hootenannies, rock bands, clowns, "Mass on the floor," (yes....here in Milwaukee), and dance.  Even in those parishes which observe some propriety, the Propers are completely absent--not only dumped in favor of "hymns," but not even mentioned in the weekly pamphlet.  In the USA, the Offertory Proper has NEVER been published in the authorized NO missals.  Yet the Propers are an integral part of every Mass!

Reed sums it up; note the reference to radical inculturation which has to do with Amazonian folderol:

....[I]t [is] a fact that subjectivity, not objectivity, has been the lot of the Sacred Liturgy for far too long, from the pre-conciliar disdain of sung or solemn Mass as being ‘too much unnecessary fuss’ (the expression “It’s the Low mass that matters!” comes right out of this stable…), to the liturgy being regarded as something which I may translate, celebrate and adapt according to our—or even my own—preferences, to the unforeseeable horizons of the proposed “organic progression of the liturgy” which embraces radical inculturation and more.8 Even more conservative or so-called “traditional” circles, not infrequently go beyond the bounds of what is given to us by the Church and select, adapt or ignore rites according to subjective will....
Much like a fence or a wall, the rituals, vestments, motions, and Chants (Latin or vulgar) protect what is within:  the offering of ourselves, the re-presentation of the Sacrifice, and the Communion.  Once the fence is knocked down, the liturgy is re-shaped (mis-shaped) according to NewThink V.1 (or V.2, V.3.....), things go wrong.

Reed proposes a solution, of course.  But you'll have to read the linked essay to find it. 

Pray harder.

Trump Is Right

Don't like it here?


Trump is right.

Predictable girly-girl responses from Graham, what's-his-name from Ohio, and we're waiting for it from Romney and Ryan.  The Cuck Parade, ya'know.

Cry me a river, leave the country.  Want Communism?  Red China wants you.  Want socialism?  Red China wants you.  Want Mohammedanism?  Try Saudi Arabia, Iran, or any one of several shitholes in  Africa.

And take Bernie with you.  

"Segregation Causes Crime"--Another Take

A few days ago, we posted a very, very, short take on an essay appearing in the local truth-bender, which essay proposed that 'segregation causes crime' or something.

George Mitchell writes a longer and far-more-nicer critique, and he will be called "RAAAAAAAAAciss" in due course.

...With segregation entrenched in much of Milwaukee’s north and northwest sides, this conclusion means the outlook is slim for improvement. As Luthern reports, “In Milwaukee, at least three in four black residents would need to relocate in order to live in fully integrated neighborhoods, wrote William H. Frey, author of a Brookings Institution study released late last year.”

An unstated but significant implication is that prospects for many Milwaukee Blacks are subject largely to factors beyond their control. That is, with little chance for meaningful reduction in segregation, higher levels of violence are a given.

The alternative view — that Blacks have a primary role in shaping their lives — is fraught with potential for controversy. Any suggestion to that effect by a white person is guaranteed to spur charges of racial bias. This effectively silences voices — Black and white. It results in a narrow, constricted public discussion about how to address seemingly intractable problems. 

The upshot is a disproportionate emphasis on actions that assume government has the primary role. The main losers in that dialogue are citizens who have accepted the view that their future primarily is tied to actions of elected officials in Madison and Washington....
Of course, Mitchell is not a racist.  He's a mostly-reformed ex-Democrat.  (The tell?  working for Dave Carley, a Kennedy 'crat of the first water).  Unfortunately for him, Mitchell is a realist.

...In preparing for that assignment, I reviewed data for census tracts in Milwaukee’s (segregated) near north side. I assumed the numbers were wrong when I read that more than seventy percent of children were born to and lived in single parent households. When told those in fact were correct numbers, my reaction was immediate: “That can’t work. No way.”

The research, of course, is voluminous and not in dispute as to the divergent prospects for children raised in one- and two-parent families.  While segregation admittedly is a factor over which Milwaukee Blacks have little or no control, that’s decidedly not the case when it comes to birthrates and family formation.  ...

That 70% number was true about 20-30 years ago, according to Mitchell.  I don't think that has changed by any significant amount, either.

Whether accidental or not, the KittyLitter article could easily be read as support for forced busing (Kamala Harris, anyone??) just as was ordered by John Reynolds, another--but more Lefty--'60's Democrat poobah. 

Maybe that 'forced busing' thing is coming back, eh?

Sen. Cornyn: Symbol of the Stupid Party

Sen. John Cornyn, a leftover from who-knows-when, had an opinion about Trump's threat to Mexico.

"‘We’re holding a gun to our own heads,’ said Sen. John Cornyn in June.--Cole Carrick quoted at Surber
Yah, right.

Seizures of illegal crossers are down 28% since June.

The 'gun to our own head' line is interesting, though.  Given this man's apparent IQ, one wonders if he tried that himself.

Looking For the Downside Here......

For some reason this is news.

...actress and musician Miley Cyrus (shown above with Hillary Clinton) has declared she won’t have children until global warming is taken care of, according to an interview she did with Elle magazine published on Thursday....

The first question is "So what?"

The second:  "Is there a downside here?"

Feds Take Back $7MM From Wisconsin

This is not "New" news, but it's another Diamond Jim Doyle story.

Seems that Doyle and his trusty (?) helper Karen Timberlake hired a crooked "consultant" to fiddle-fart Wisconsin's food-stamp success.


Feds found out, nailed Wisconsin for $7 million in fines.

The consultant just got slammed for $750K+.  Little old lady from South Dakota, of all places.

"Equality" Out. "Equity" In.

See, they couldn't make "equality" work.  Too many slugs and cretins, and now "trans"-whatevers demolishing "equal" sports, making them look very, very bad.

So the new word is "equity.

But it's only a word.

They're still coming after all your guns, money, property, borders, and women.  They're just calling it a sexy new name.

Maybe the 9th Is No Longer a Circus!

Another decision flavored with sanity from the 9th Circuit?

Where is the 9th we knew and ridiculed??

...The 9th Circuit Court of Appeals on Friday ruled in favor of the Trump administration's efforts to prioritize federal dollars for local policing to towns and cities that complied with certain immigration policies.

"The ruling, a split 2-1 decision, said the Department of Justice (DOJ) was within its rights to withhold Community Oriented Policing Services (COPS) grants from sanctuary cities and states over their refusal to work with federal immigration enforcement authorities and instead prioritize agencies that focused on unauthorized immigration and agreed to give Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) access to jail records and immigrants in custody...
.Surber, quoting The Hill
Next thing, the 9th will affirm that Trump is President or something.....

Summerfest Attendance Dives

Well, the lazy, hazy, crazy days of Summerfest are........ahhh......deflating.

Attendance in 2014 was 851,000+

Attendance in 2019 was 718,000+

That's a 15% drop in 5 years.

Naturally, Summerfest spun like crazy (and crazy it was!!)

...Despite the fact that there were only 10 amphitheater concerts, and four days of severe thunderstorm warnings, attendance was reported at 718,144.

Had there been the typical 11 amphitheater openings, Milwaukee World Festival, Inc. says festival attendance would be projected at 733,144....

Sure.  And wishes were Unicorns, with Fairy Dust, and all the Children lived Happily Ever After.

This ain't good, friends.

The "Temple?" Sure. Epstein's Virgin-Sacrifice

Some pretend to be ignorant of the "purpose" for Epstein's "temple" on Orgy Island, frequented by Bill Clinton.

...There have been varying explanations for the blue-striped “temple.” While the Associated Press account of it was benign, INSIDER’s story about it turned up something that is potentially nefarious....
The "temple" resembles this one:

 aztec temple | by pankun | Aztec, Mayan, Olmec, etc ...

....which was its Aztec forerunner.  There's one apparent difference: the Aztecs killed their victims.  So far, there's no evidence that Clinton and Epstein did that.

"Returning Donations" Doesn't Mean "Forgetting" Donations

We've seen a lot of politicians get into Holy Picture mode by "returning donations" which came from slimeballs such as Bill Clinton's close friend Epstein, the child-rapist.

Happened in New Mexico, where extreme-Lefty ex-Clinton Energy Secretary Bill Richardson "returned donations" from Clinton's close friend child-rapist Epstein.

Yah, well, Holy Pictures aside.....do you really think that Bill Richardson, friend of Bill and of child-rapist Epstein--also a friend of Bill--FORGOT about a $50,000 donation?

He may have returned it, but .........

Scalise, the Optimist?

On the one hand, we hear Doomsayers (Limbaugh comes to mind) who are convinced that GenX, Y, and Z are irredeemable socialists--thus, the country is doomed after (say) 2050 or so.

On the other hand, we have Scalise, who seems to think otherwise.

...There are no moderates left in the Democrat Party, and liberal Pelosi is losing the battle with socialists like Ocasio-Cortez, Scalise told Fox News...

...they ran and Pelosi took the gavel trying to think that she could appeal to Middle America. And, Middle America is looking at this going, 'Wait a minute, we are not a socialist nation. We are still a center right nation.'"...
Stay tuned.

What Was Harvard Giving Epstein?

Well, this is interesting.

Harvard University temporarily deleted an online calendar disclosing accused pedophile Jeffrey Epstein’s on-campus visits with its professors in 2014 following an NBC News inquiry, the outlet reported Friday...

So.  Who was giving what to whom?  Was this a recruiting visit?  And who was doing the recruiting?

Homan Slaps Silly-Stupid AOC

The Democrat Party's new face was slapped silly by Tom Homan, ex-Director of ICE.

It's fun to watch, as the Most Ignorant Revolutionary actually stopped running her mouth.

Where's Tariffmageddon??

Contrary to the wailing and screeching of the Chamber of Commerce twits and their running-dog lackey RadioMouths, "Tariffmageddon" has not arrived.

...The most recent evidence against what trade expert Alan Tonelson calls Tariffmageddon scaremongering comes from Friday’s release of the producer-price index, which mostly measures the prices businesses receive for their goods and services. This rose a seasonally adjusted 0.1 percent in June from a month earlier, the Labor Department said. From a year earlier, the producer-price index increased by 1.7 percent.

The unchanged prices for goods less food and energy categories is especially notable because the prices for services is showing some healthy signs of inflation, rising 0.4 percent for the month. Goods less food and energy is more or less the “tradeable sector” of the economy and the broadest category where tariffs would show up if they were to hit consumers....
Tod, wo ist ein stachel?

Under Clinton, Bush, and Obozo, our "betters" gave away billions of dollars of jobs, taken from US citizens and sacrificed to Big Money and to the largest geopolitical threat to the US:  Red China.

Trump saw it and put it into full reverse.

You're never going to hear an apology from the people who screwed you and your children, of course.  All you get is the satisfaction of seeing the jobs come back, for the time being.

The Palm Beach County prosecutor, Barry Krisher, wanted to let Epstein go free.  This infuriated the cop-shop which had Epstein six ways from Sunday on child-rape and pimping.

The US attorney, Acosta, created a case against Epstein and got some Huber-style jail time AND put him on the sex-offender registry AND gave the victims a pathway to damage suits.

But what about Dershowitz.  Here's an interesting couple of grafs....

...The article alleged investigators who handled the Palm Beach case said Krischer pressured them to downgrade charges against the billionaire to a misdemeanor, or to drop the case completely.
Joseph Recarey, a detective who worked the Epstein case, told The Herald that Alan Dershowtiz, Epstein’s lawyer, flew to Florida to meet privately with Krischer.

Recarey also told The Herald that in May 2006, he drew up probable cause affidavits that charged Epstein and three associates with a slew of sex crimes. But instead of pushing forward with the case, Krischer referred the case to a state grand jury, which returned an indictment on a single count of soliciting prostitution.

According to The Herald, Recarey said Krischer told him he did not believe Epstein’s accusers. Only two out of more than a dozen of Epstein’s alleged victims testified before the grand jury....
So was Dershowitz being a "defense lawyer" or was he really a messenger from Clinton, or others still not mentioned?

Inquiring minds, and all that....

With Obama, It Was "America Second. Or Third. Whatever...."

We all know that various US-based government entities can spy on anyone here at will.  They've been doing it for years. 

Now the spying will be done by the Chinese Communists.  Why?  Because Obama (and his idiot VP Biden) ignored all the signs and signals.

Here's Goldman (Spengler) on the situation:

...“From China’s standpoint, the U.S. dominates signals intelligence,” he pointed out. “Let’s say the balance of power shifts to the defense and everyone is able to protect all of their signals. At that point, who’s the loser? The United States is the net loser. That’s one reason the United States intelligence community is so upset about Huawei. Unfortunately, they should have thought of this a few years ago.”

“I can tell you all this stuff was on Huawei’s website. It was being blared at public conferences. There was no secret about all of this stuff. Under the Obama administration, our brilliant intelligence community — the same intelligence community that has been trying to frame up the president — completely ignored the Chinese. Now they seem to have woken up, but it’s kind of late.”...
Brennan should be tried and executed for Passive Gross Malevolent Stupidity.  Life in prison for Ms. Rice and Obama.  Force Biden to live in Red China.

Brian Steil, Mini-Ryan

When it comes to Americans First.....well, ahhhhh.......don't count on Brian Steil.

Remember those Boeing 727-Max planes crashing?  Remember who wrote the computer programs for those planes?

Yup.  Steil, like his predecessor, wants more of the same.

Maybe that district should just elect a non-citizen, too.
