Memorial Day 2016

"Never in the field of human conflict was so much owed by so many to so few." —Winston Churchill

As we do on this day each year, we pause to remember the men and women who died fighting for our freedom.

We stand by humbly, gratefully, silently, to honor their sacrifice.

We remember…

We mourn for those lost…

And we mourn for those they’ve left behind

As we reflect again on the the steep price of freedom.

By all means, enjoy your picnics, parades and celebrations today – it is a holiday after all. But do pause to remember and honor all the brave Americans across time who have sacrificed their lives in the fight against tyrants and tyrannies that threaten the endurance of the great American experiment.

And should anyone dare ask “what difference does it make”

Obama Coffins

I think it’s fair to say “all the difference in the world.”

Because there will always be tyrants.

Who Are the Real Luddites Around Here?

As we kick off the summer of 2016 the world remains terrorized - by Islamo-fascists, global warmists and now…mosquitos.

Islamic fascists live in the firm grasp of a seventh century religious cult even as their beliefs intersect with the modern era, putting the worst of both worlds within their grasp. Or, as George Carlin put it, “ancient hatreds and modern weapons, my kind of show man!”

terrorists

Global warmists, in one of the richest ironies of our time, reject actual scientific methodology in favor of bogus anecdotal data which - as it turns out - isn’t even anecdotal, it’s manufactured. (here, here, here and here)

steyn_disgrace

Yet they are still faithfully committed to the conclusions produced by the bogus data, just as the Islamo-fascists remain committed to the dictates of their Koran; it’s a religious thing. And like the Islamo-fascists, the warmists want us to return to a simpler time when life did not involve the use of so many carbon based fuels. You know - before electricity, central heating and toilet paper. (Welcome to Venezuela! We’ve got plenty of mosquitos too!!)

And then, of course, there are the mosquitos.

mosquitos

The mosquito-borne virus, which causes terrible birth defects in babies born to infected mothers and paralytic disease in adults, is expected to reach some 50 U.S. cities as the weather gets warmer, extending throughout the South and up the East Coast…there is no vaccine or cure available.

It never needed to get to this point. Zika was actually identified decades ago in Africa, but until now wasn’t considered a threat to the Americas. That is because the mosquito that spreads the virus, Aedes aegypti, was practically eradicated in Latin America in the 1940s and ’50s.

That’s right, DDT nearly eradicated the Aedes mosquito, carrier of malaria, yellow fever and Zika, from North and South America. Butt then came environmental alarmists Rachel Carson and Paul Ehrlich and the next thing you knew there was a scientific consensus that DDT was killing the planet (which, it turned out, was not true -- spectacularly not true) and banned. Hence, the return of the killer mosquito.

All of which leads me to ask, who, exactly, are the Luddites around here? Donald Trump, who wants to keep the Islamo-fascists out of our country and doesn’t care that he may have to ban some of the “peace loving Muslims” along with them until “we figure out what’s going on” or the “Progressives” who want to open the borders to all comers, no questions asked?

muslim-immig

The Deniers who want to continue the advance of the modern world by continuing to use proven sources of power or the Warmists who wish to rely on 14th century wind power to run our modern world?

f013f6f2fa401caae6268817250ae2947ef9f5f7385b4f0fc329a7760db60f2b

Environmentalists more interested in protecting rain forests, salamanders and bugs than people or radical rightwing extremists who believe human life to be more valuable than the vermin of the earth? I’m just asking.

Getting Tired of All That Hopey Changey Crap? Feel the Bern.

LEÓN KRAUZE, UNIVISION: I am sure that you know about this topic: various leftist governments, especially the populists, are in serious trouble in Latin America. The socialist model in Venezuela has the country near collapse. Argentina, also Brazil, how do you explain that failure?

BERNIE SANDERS, DEMOCRATIC CANDIDATE: You are asking me questions…

LEÓN KRAUZE, UNIVISION: I am sure you’re interested in that.

BERNIE SANDERS, DEMOCRATIC CANDIDATE: I am very interested, but right now I’m running for President of the United States.

LEÓN KRAUZE, UNIVISION: So you don’t have an opinion about the crisis in Venezuela?

BERNIE SANDERS, DEMOCRATIC CANDIDATE: Of course I have an opinion, but as I said, I’m focused on my campaign.

Butt, butt, butt…you’re running for President of the United States in order to turn it into a socialist paradise like Argentina, Brazil, Venezuela. Couldn’t you take a moment to explain how that will work?

Venezuela_loo_roll_3185427cWaiting in line in Caracas supermarket to buy toilet paper – looks pretty social!

And shouldn’t someone running on a socialist revolution platform be happy to explain that ideology?

bernie_revolution

And what it might take to “make a political revolution?” In order to “feel the Bern?”

ferguson burns

Butt honestly, with the right campaign, you can sell just about anything in P.T Barnum’s America. (trigger warning - literally) Shoot, remember this golden oldie?

obama-hope-and-change-2008

So now’s no time to be shy Bernie, tell us how it really works. Before the angry mobs take over to make America Great Again.

simpsons-mob-998x697

Because they’re sick and tired of all the hopey changey crap.

Obama_Poster_Hopey_Dwarf

I “wrap up” this special edition post with a question for the Socialist Democrat candidate from Vermont by way of Brooklyn: Why can’t you do this in Venezuela?

tp shooter

Since Bernie is still focused on his campaign he is unavailable to answer for himself, and if you really want to know you’ll have to elect him in order to find out (h/t Nancy Pelosi).

Hiroshima: Dude, that was like 71 years ago!

Thankfully Barry didn’t quite apologize for dropping the bomb when he went to visit Hiroshima. He did take the opportunity to call for a nuclear-free world though - which is about as realistic as a gun-free America, another of Barry’s pipe dreams (literally).

coke pipeAn efficient pipedream delivery system

Butt reality has never entered the picture when Barry has a Dream. And a nuclear free world world has been a dream of his ever since he was a young pup and “researched” the topic for his debut journalism thesis at Columbia’s Sundial.

 “It’s naïve for us to think…that we can grow our nuclear stockpiles, the Russians continue to grow their nuclear stockpiles, and our allies grow their nuclear stockpiles, and that in that environment we’re going to be able to pressure countries like Iran and North Korea not to pursue nuclear weapons themselves.” – DFD, It Seemed Like a Good Idea at the Time

Actually what’s naïve is to continue to believe the flawed logic of a college activist – who couldn’t be bothered to attend classes - turned community organizer. Unfortunately College Barry’s nuclear free world thesis was not one of the issues he “evolved” on. So like many certifiable geniuses, a case could be made that Barry also did his best work while still in his 20’s.

young bo obama stoned 1981 NY

Certainly his Hiroshima “trip” to “honor all war dead” was not one of his best moments. Given the well-documented barbarity of the Japanese Imperial Army, many considered his gesture a cynical claim of moral equivalency. And naked narcissism.

Obama’s narcissism, his zeal for photo opportunities with him at the center, whether in Havana or Hiroshima, too often overcomes lesser concerns — like the best interests of the country. He puts his vanity before our nation’s pride.

Butt hey! We don’t need no stinkin’ nuclear arms! We’ve got luv and good intentions! And Coke!

Let’s Par-tay!!

“We Are On Correct Path Comrades” – take 3876

The presumed Democrat nominee is clearly a serial liar. Does anyone - other than Trump - care? We know her only opponent was “sick and tired” of hearing about her “damn emails” months ago. Even though she obviously, purposefully and repeatedly broke many State Department rules regarding her email security and private server. And she repeatedly lied about it. So what? What difference at this point does it make?

Hillary-what difference

So I’m glad to see we’re all focusing instead on the really big issues like ensuring that possibly gender specific terms that may possibly offend someone be replaced with new, made-up, gender neutral words. That’s right words like “mankind” and “humanare offensive to our Defense Department and they vill be replaced! Private email servers and security breeches? Eh, not so much.

hillary blackberry

Are we all clear on our priorities then? Good.

In the immortal words of vereteno: “We are on correct path comrades”

Life’s Too Short For Fascists

It’s a classic example of hell-bound good intentions. I’m not going to go as far as George Carlin butt I will say that this whole mess started when progressives started to idolize children. First we had childproof caps, child restraints, child car seats and helmets for everything. It grew into grief counselors at school – initially on an ad hoc basis to deal with the unexpected death of a schoolmate because their kids parents couldn’t be expected to handle that, due to their own grief. Butt once the school budgets expanded to include full time on-staff counselors it became de rigueur to provide grief services for everything from not getting into the college of your choice to hangnails.

Eventually this coddling  evolved into college safe spaces, where “children” are protected from anything they don’t agree with.

safe space“I'm sick and tired of people who say that if you debate and disagree with this administration, somehow you're not patriotic. We need to stand up and say we're Americans, and we have the right to debate and disagree with any administration.”Hillary Clinton (screaming audio here if you’re masochistic)

So here we are: “children” demanding to be protected from chalkings and ideas that make them uncomfortable, like math. Yesterday, once again, the thought police forced the shutdown of a conservative speaker on campus at DePaul University. You remember Milo Yiannopoulos don’t you, conservative rabble rouser? He’s the only flamboyant gay activist the left loves to hate because he doesn’t agree with them. So naturally, he could not be allowed to express his opinions to a crowd that chose to come and listen to him, because…UNCOMFORTABLE DIVERSITY!

The event, held at a packed auditorium, began without incident. But just under 20 minutes in, as Yiannopoulos was ridiculing the idea of “microaggressions,” a group of Black Lives Matter demonstrators stormed the stage and derailed the entire event.Daily Caller

And this behavior has now moved beyond the college campus, thanks in large part to the Obama/Soros Organizing For America/Action committees. Yesterday they dispatched their mini-fascists to “demonstrate” against The Donald in Albuquerque.

In one of the presidential campaign year’s more grisly spectacles, protesters at a Donald Trump rally in New Mexico threw burning T-shirts, plastic bottles and other items at police officers, injuring several, and toppled trash cans and barricades.

During the rally, the presumptive Republican presidential nominee was interrupted repeatedly by protesters, who shouted, held up banners and resisted removal by security officers.protesters. - NY Post

It’s becoming harder and harder to tell the difference between peaceful demonstrators and rioters.

gop_2016_trump-9

Anyway, I think all the MOTI attending the Albuquerque event have checked in, although we’re still awaiting detailed accounts. In the mean time, let’s all be careful out there. Butt not too careful.

Chopstick Diplomacy: Parts Unknown

Remember the weighty advice Barry had for the presumptive Republican presidential nominee a few weeks back? “…the presidency “is not entertainment — this is not a reality show.”

Boy, we wish that were so.

However, during his recent FEAT (Far East Apology Tour) Barry Obama appeared with Anthony Bourdain for a taping of his show - Parts Unknown, a CNN foodie travelogue.

obama bourdain vietnamThe foodie and the druggie shared a lunch of bún chả and beer; Tony praised Barry’s chopstick skills and picked up the tab.

In case you’re not familiar with Tony, he’s the former chain smoking, coke sniffing, heroin addicted NY chef, foodie writer and documentarian. I liked him in his first TV incarnation - A Cook’s Tour - as a jaded wise cracking ex-chef who visited other peoples kitchens in interesting locales and ate what they cooked. Then he moved to the upper West Side and has been intolerable since. He turned into a snide, hypocritical, liberal – butt I repeat myself - TV food celebrity. Instead of being funny now he’s just ironic.

middle-finger.bourdain pg

Not surprising then that Bourdain recently voiced his opposition to Trump’s candidacy, saying that if he actually was able to deport the 11 million illegal aliens in the country “every restaurant in America would shut down.” I guess restaurant work must be one of those jobs Americans just won’t do. I wonder why so many American kids are paying good money to go to culinary school then.

Anyway, I asked myself what American President would want to appear on Parts Unknown, Tony’s smug show that travels around the world bashing America. Butt of course that’s obvious: a smug American President who travels around the world bashing America.

And as far as the presidency not being entertainment, not being a reality show – well,judge for yourself. Here’s a list of Barry’s appearances, so far:

American Idol

Myth Busters (2 times)

Ellen (4 times)

The Colbert Report (3 times)

The Daily Show (7 times)

Running Wild with Bear Grylls

Charlie Brown Christmas

Shark Tank

David Letterman (9 times)

Steve Harvey

Between Two Ferns with Zach Galifinakis

Tonight Show with Jay Leno (6 times)

WWE Pro Wrestling (3 times)

Oprah (3 times)

Jeopardy

The Apprentice

Late Night with Jimmy Fallon

Conan O’brien (2 times)

Last Comic Standing

Jimmy Kimmel Live (2 times)

If Hillary doesn’t make it all the way to the gate I think maybe Tony would be a good stand in. He’s got a lot of the Democratic presidential prerequisites these days: effete snob, check, ex- druggie, check, TV ready, check, America basher, check. And he’s pretty good with chopsticks too.

bourdainEeeuw! What is he eating?

Guns In the News

I have an appointment this morning, so here’s today’s topic: Guns.

Trumps got ‘em.

nra

Hillary wants ‘em:

“If she gets to appoint her judges, she will abolish the Second Amendment," Trump told an enthusiastic crowd.”

"Unlike Donald Trump, I will not pander to the gun lobby."( she said while pandering to the Trayvon Martin Foundation's Circle of Mothers.)

 Barry’s selling ‘em.

President Obama on Monday announced the United States was lifting its decades-long embargo on weapons’ sales to Vietnam, an act most political watchers say will fuel an angry reaction from China.

Traitor Hanoi Jane is still conflicted.
