British Disrupt Another Terrorist Plot

By the way, liberals, the Brits just used a gun to stop yet another terrorist attack. Oh, yes, more of the British police carry guns now, after Khalid Masood ran down 5 people and then stabbed a police officer to death. I guess Masood was angry that Scotland still has not declared independence, or over the Irish troubles or something. Something. Can’t imagine his motivation, can we?

Obama surprises his base with his post-POTUS corporate greed

In the meantime, in contrast to the post below, former President Obama “stuns” liberals by speaking to Wall Street for $400,000.

Fees like these are how they pad the pockets of the insider Left. Cush academia jobs; book contracts; government grants; NPR specials. They view government as their personal playground, not service to the people.

And, you Democrats thought Barack Obama was different.

 

Trump, the ideal President?

This guy, Donald Trump, is turning out to be my ideal President. Perusing Google News this morning, just to see what the mainstream, liberal spin is, I find:

First, he’s at the NRA convention. I could stop right there. Need I say more?

He’s telling South Korea that, they might — duh — need to pay for their own national defense.

He’s telling the Saudis they might need to pay more to maintain their royal domination over the sandbox.

He’s telling Europe that this whole America-pays-for-NATO thing has to be re-thought and re-negotiated. I might be a bit more blunt about it and, perhaps in secret, he is.

He’s improving the income tax code. I’d scrap it altogether for the many reasons written here before, but it’s a start. If we must have it, then it requires a re-write every few years to get rid of the worst of the congressional abuses that pile up.

He is addressing the threat from North Korea that has been building for decades, and largely either ignored or ineptly handled by past presidents.

De-fund NPR Hate Speech

I decided to let a day pass between their broadcast, and this post. NPR’s public radio is a hate-speech propaganda machine whose commentators relentlessly barrage conservatives. Period.

First, here is the pattern. Pick the latest Democrat Party mantra. Find some liberal squirrel to interview and carry the propaganda. Speak in earnest, concerned voices. And smear Republican conservatives. Here is the example that prompted this post.

They interviewed some guy who claims that he was once a “white supremacist.” Now, he is a liberal, anti-Trump propagandist. His story — I doubt that it is true — could have been an interesting insight; instead, he and the interviewer morphed it quickly into an anti-Trump voter propaganda piece. The guest “hears” white supremacy in everythign Trump voters say. Apparently, it’s not enough to accuse Republicans of being racist. NPR found a way to up the diatribe. Now, Republicans are white supremacists. Concerned over $20 trillion in debt? You are a white supremacist! Concerned over a government bent on stifling enterprise? Think immigration law should be enforced? You are a white supremacist. Concerned over judicial activism and, well, just fill in the blank here ___________________________ with conservative, constitutionalist views of government, and they equate you with the white supremacy movement. How many of those people are there, anyway? Apparently, half the country.

Liberals, can you begin to comprehend how reprehensible and infuriating this is, that we taxpayers have to pay for your favorite program to insult us? Let them carry on their little hate-fest on the dimes of contributions and advertisers.

Deep State Courts on Immigration

A federal judge wrote an order enjoining the Executive Branch from enforcing immigration law through federal funding to rogue cities. Because the lust for power was proven time and again throughout history, our Founders gave us a carefully balanced government. Even then, they suspected some branch of government, or some person, would strive to emerge as king.

Many judges comprehend the constitutional role, and diligently look to the law. Some, however, act as a law unto themselves. Some, are plainly Deep State operatives.

A court order enjoining enforcement of a president’s order will always be couched in scholarly terms, pinning the decision onto some legal authority, no matter how flimsy. But, it appears that we have “sanctuary courts” now, too.

While the most liberal democrats may celebrate this, such judges are anarchists. We have a Congress that makes laws. The Constitution explicitly grants Congress the power to create a uniform system of immigration. The swamp extends to the courthouses, and I hope President Trump will dredge deeply.

In the meantime, Congress should act, making explicit its power to make immigration law.

The science is unsettling

We are reminded that pinning the “scientist” pin on somebody, does not cleanse him from corruption. So, Syrian scientists brewed the Devil’s chemical weapons. Don’t you believe in science? I do, but I also believe that all have sinned and fallen short of theglory of God and are in need of mercy and grace. Indeed, once conferred by self or others, with special status, the scientist may behave like other bad actors elevated to special status: like the Clintons, or Miley Cyrus, or like the last of the French royalty, or like — oh, heck, there are just too many examples of power corrupting for me to go on.

We are right to refuse to defer to the “experts.” Watch them all like hawks.

Urban Chaos on Oakland Train

Let’s have some descriptions from witnesses. And, was no one on board the train armed? Oh, I see: Oakland, California, where only criminals go armed.

This sort of urban chaos as the culture breaks down, is an excellent argument not only for the right to keep and bear arms, but also for modern, double-stack magazine-fed semi-automatic pistols.

But, this was no suicide wave attack. I doubt that the rest of the cowards would have hung around once a five-shot revolver took out the closest few of them.

The Idiocracy is not only stupid; it’s deadly mean.

New Sheriff in Town and New Judge

Leftists break down our culture and our country. One technique they have used for years is creating chaos in the criminal courts and prisons. Specifically, liberal judges and lawyers have hamstrung the states’ power to carry out capital punishment. They claim they are guarding some ever-shifting right, but they simply oppose the death penalty — and other effective crime control.

This time, the attack was Arkansas’ choice of lethal injection drugs. Note the supplier, McKesson’s, gutless response. In a 5-4 decision, Justice Gorsuch made a difference. Thank you, Republican Senators and President Trump.

Embarrassing Investment Experience

Well, this is embarrassing. I’ve tried numerous investments over the years. I traded commodities for a while. I picked the months pre-crash to do some stock day-trading. Actually made some good buys, but decided the market was fixed, got most of my money back, and got out. Land. Apartments. Do not own apartments unless you have fortitude and common business sense. Just don’t.

As it turns out, here is perhaps the best investment I made during all that time. Continue reading
