From Jesse Kelly:
Take a long hard look at how the Left is treating Brett Kavanaugh. He’s pretty much the most vanilla, decent, boring human being on the planet. But he believes in The Constitution so they DESPISE him. That’s how they feel about you too. Never forget it.
Update (20181010): Worth noting below.
This may be a tiny bit out of date because it sounds like even (some of) the Never Trumpers get what’s happening with the Kavanaugh circus. Nonetheless, this is a great rant, and I want to remember it.
NeverTrump is as culpable as the Left for the current hellscape that is US politics. They side with the Left on every smear against Trump, his family, his administration and his voters. They bolster the corrupt Trump-Russia probe and cheer FBI raids of private property. 1/
NeverTrumpers used Stormy as a cudgel against evangelicals, legitimatized her vile attorney. They stood silent while Scott Pruitt and his family were viciously attacked then joined the Left in calling for his resignation. They ridicule Trump voters with every name in the book. 2/
NeverTrump mocks SCOTUS with their childish “But Gorsuch” taunt. They smear GOP reps like Nunes, DeSantis. They established the “credible accusation” clause during Roy Moore campaign and helped put a D in the Senate. NeverTrump wants Democrats to take control of Congress 3/
Even now, they hedge on the Kavanaugh allegations, ridiculously claiming that “if true it’s disqualifying.” Some have rolled out their tales of woe to show solidarity with the Left. A few have suggested Kavanaugh should lose his CURRENT job if this is at all true. 4/
NeverTrump is worse than the Left. At least we know what to expect from the lunatic Left. NeverTrump are keyboard warriors but capitulate to the bullies on the Left each chance they get. They are as destructive – if nor more so – than 1,000 Dianne Feinsteins or Adam Schiffs.
In response to some chin-stroking disbelief about how the left coordinates it’s attacks.
They don’t need to be coordinated. The Left has developed a system where a leader identifies a target, the MSM illuminates it, and the True Believer footsoldiers act on their own.
Like Joe the Plumber. Like audits of people Obama mentioned by name. Like the GOP softball shooter.
There was a post at Uriasposten recently about an ever-so angry femi-atheo-lefty Danish rapper named Nikoline who seems quite taken by herself. Her shtick is as a spokesperson for “a new movement of sexually fluent youth”, but I just think she likes to dress and act slutty and use bad words.
The post referenced one of the Nikoline videos, Sut Min Klit (ie, Suck My Clit) – NSFW, heck, not safe for most places. The video is pretty bad. Silly and angry at the same time with a large dollop of “ooh, look at me being naughty”. Many of the commenters seem to agree with me.
So, anyway, last week or so, Ace’s blog highlighted a couple of bad videos and one of them was the infamous Apache by Tommy Seebach. A contender for the worst music video ever made.
And then this morning, it occurred to me, days after having seen the Nikoline video above (or as much as I could stand), that Denmark has a problem. There is good music in Denmark, but that music is overwhelmed by the completely awful music and videos to go with them. I’m not much of a Swedo-phile, but compare almost anything by ABBA to the biggest international hit to come from Denmark, Aqua’s Barbie Girl… sad.
Geez, that’s three videos as contenders for the worst music videos ever made spread out over some 40 years. I think Denmark has a problem.
I go this from Ace’s blog, which referenced an article from the Washington Examiner. I wasn’t comfortable quoting too much from the article, but I think that think-tanks et al, are cool with it. Anyway, from the Immigration Reform Law Institute comes little gem:
The Immigration Reform Law Institute (IRLI) obtained data showing that, from 2012 to 2016, there were “39 million instances where names and Social Security Numbers (SSNs) on W-2 tax forms did not match the corresponding Social Security records. The group said the Obama Administration’s termination of no-match letters resulted in a “thriving black market where illegal aliens can obtain the Social Security numbers of U.S. citizens in order to gain employment.”
In April of 2018, IRLI filed a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit to obtain records the number of “no-match” instances after the Obama Administration stopped sending letters informing employers and employees that there was an inconsistency between the name or SSN reported by the employer and Social Security Administration (SSA) records. Read the full article at Numbers USA.
There’s a link or two more in both the post at Ace as well as the quote above.
From a comment at Shot In The Dark:
It’s good to see Liberals focus on the deficit. But that’s only part of the problem and the most easily solved. I’ll lay it out again for those who forgot the basic facts.
The “deficit” is how much the budget is short this year. We planned to spend 100, we took in 80, the deficit is 20. No problem, we borrow 20, budget balanced. Better still, we cut spending by 20. If all you’re worried about is the annual shortfall, slash entitlements and everything is cool.
The “debt” is how much we’ve borrowed to cover those annual deficits, year after year after year. The total debt is right around $21 Trillion dollars. There’s no plan to repay the debt because it cannot realistically be done. If you devoted 100% of all tax revenues to payments, it would take five years to pay off the debt and during that time we’d have no Congress, no Army, no food stamps, no college loans. Nobody would go for that nor would our enemies give us that much breathing room. Any smaller payment plan takes too long – the math theoretically works but the political willpower could never be sustained.
And those are the easy problems. The “debt” is the sum of all the loans we already took, it does not include the cost of covering promises we made such as future payments for Social Security. Your retirement plan doesn’t exist and everybody has known it for years.
Your pension is a lie
There are three possibilities: America can cut spending by 50% and use the savings to pay off the debt over several generations; America can repudiate the debt and deal with the resulting global financial crisis; America can complain about Trump’s tweets and ignore the problem.
I guess we know the Liberal and RINO plan.
I’m headed to Fleet Farm to stock up on bullets.
Tucker Carlson addresses the “diversity is our strength” BS and finds the real reason it exists.
1/6 The organized left is lying about a segment we did on Friday night. Our topic was “diversity is our strength,” a phrase our leaders use to end conversation rather than spur it. You hear it all the time. We asked, what exactly does it mean? Is it true?
2/6 Here are the words from our segment: “How precisely is diversity our strength? Can you think of other institutions, such as marriage or military units, in which the less people have in common, the more cohesive they are?”
3/6 “Do you get along better with your neighbors and coworkers if you can’t understand each other, or share no common values? And if diversity is our strength, why is it OK for the rest of us to surrender our freedom of speech to just a handful of tech monopolies?”
4/6 These are the questions our leaders out to be asking every day. How does a nation of 325 million people hang together? What do we all have in common as Americans? Why should we remain a country? Nothing is more important than answering this.
5/6 But our leaders aren’t even asking these questions. Instead they’re trying to silence anyone who raises them, while at the same time promoting mindless tribalism for political expedience. Division keeps them in power.
6/6 What’s at stake isn’t a cable news segment. It’s the existence of rational conversation in America. If they can prevent you from asking honest questions, there’s nothing they can’t do.
That is, [certain forms of] diversity is a political tool of the left to maintain power.
Nolte on fire. I don’t know how much I can copy’n'paste, but I’m going for the gusto. Remember, however, the reason that Nolte is so good is that he always backs up his assertions, so there are links in the original that worth the time and effort to follow. This is just the text:
As the corrupt media fabricate a “fitness for office” crisis, remember…
Trump has done nothing wrong.
Even those hiding behind anonymity, even those hiding behind those hiding behind anonymity, no one has made a single allegation that Trump has done anything wrong.
All this ginned up media hysteria, all this Never Trump nonsense about the 25th Amendment, all this #Resistance adulation over a glory-seeking narcissist hiding behind the skirts of the New York Times — where is this narcissist’s allegation of wrongdoing?
Go back and read the piece — there’s no allegation of wrongdoing on Trump’s part, just a coward, a preener, a saboteur with no respect for the Constitution, no respect for our electoral system, and even less respect for the American people who voted to put Trump in charge as opposed to an unelected cabal of Deep Staters.
All this hand-wringing, all this frenzy, all this invented concern over chaos in the White House, over this unprecedented moment in presidential history, what is it really about…?
