Hillary: the Luckiest Woman in the World

No kidding, is Hillary the luckiest woman in the world or what? Yesterday’s big headline  - “JV Team Slaughters Home Team” was most fortunate for old Hillz. Now even the few people who would have reported something other than “Hillary exonerated in Benghazi, Again” will be talking about Istanbul instead.

Attorney General Loretta Lynch thinks we need to fight these terrorists with love; what say you?

Peace out, as they like to say in the White House.

Our 21st Century Smurf-ragettes

The suffragettes of the early 20th century demanded a woman’s right to vote.

Screen Capture #328

The Smufragettes, the 21st century heirs of that proud legacy, demand a woman’s right to have an abortion  anywhere, anytime and now apparently by anyone.

I wish the Supreme Court would be half as vigilant with respect to our Second Amendment Rights – which are specifically spelled out in the Constitution - as they are abortion rights – which are derived from an “interesting,”  and unprecedented “privacy” interpretation of the 14th amendment’s equal protection clause that guarantees your right to not have your house searched without a warrant. (Aside: a “fetus” not being a “person” does not fall under the equal protection clause.)

You’ve come a long way, baby!

Via Larwyn’s Linx 

ER-GG-FF16-PINKThe Virginia Slim: Because No, Virginia, there isn’t a Santa Claus. Protect yourself. 

Seriously, imagine the uproar if women who’ve had abortions were required to be placed in a data base! I  think the smurfragettes would have a word or two to say about that.

No Comment Required

Did you ever - and I mean ever - think the San Francisco Gay Pride parade would be boycotted for not being queer enough? Because it was too corporate, too straight and too white…

pride san fran

to “feel like an appropriate setting to show LGBT solidarity?” Yeah, me either.

And not only that butt it’s apparently too racist as well:

The Bay Area’s chapter of Black Lives Matter (BLM) has officially pulled out of San Francisco’s gay pride parade because the city is providing an increased police presence for security. –Breitbart

Don’t you hate it when your identity groups fight amongst themselves?

Meanwhile, in international news, Gay Pride parade banned in Istanbulas reported in the appropriately titled NO COMMENT section of Euro News. Of course there’s no point having a parade in a Muslim country where, as everyone knows, they simply “do not have that phenomenon.” Probably because of the way they deal with it when they do.

And in related news, no Gay Pride parades were held in Saudi Arabia, Iran, Iraq or anywhere else in the Islamic State. TRIGGER WARNING: Microaggresion ahead.

Make America Clinton’s Again

Who took the “news” out of newspaper, news report and news coverage?

Let’s look no further than just last Friday as demonstration of this sad state of affairs. Early Friday morning when Christiane Amonpour finally processed the results of the Brexit vote to “LEAVE”  she released a  venomous attack and condemnation of those who led and voted for Brexit. Not only did she blur the line between reporting and commentary, she veered into the advocacy lane and steered right into proselytizing.

CHRISTIANE AMANPOUR: So, this is a moment of destiny that many, many people, the overwhelming, the overwhelming preponderance of experts and independent analysts and allies of the UK and the scientists, and the academics and the economists and the business and even the  sports people, the overwhelming majority said, "Stay in the EU." The people wanted to do something different.

How dare they? The preponderance of experts and analysts…and SPORTS PEOPLE! We had a CONSENSUS! Where did all these heretics come from!?!

climate_heretic1

And then there was this non-news story that I read in the USA Today rag that hotels insist on leaving outside my room when I’m traveling, which I am. It’s titled Trump's company tricked investors. Here's how.

First, there is no NEWs in this “story,” it is simply a rerun of a story from 2002 about a questionable earnings release in 2000 by Trump Hotels & Casino Resorts that the SEC claimed was misleading. There was no attempt to explain the phenomena of pro forma earnings releases that swept the country in the late 90’s. There was no explanation that in the world of accounting “pro-forma” is practically a synonym for “misleading.”

hillary pro forma

Butt for crying out loud:

keep-calm-and-caveat-emptor

If you see “pro forma” in an earnings release it should trigger a flashing red light that sends any sensible investor to the company’s public SEC filing of their financial statements where they are required to use Generally Accepted Accounting Principles. That’s where you can find out what’s really going on. Butt that’s too hard. And that’s another post.

The point is, the main story in Friday’s Money section was a Trump smear piece based on a 16 year old incident and a 14 year old story that contained zero new information. When was the last time USA Today covered a negative story about Hillary Clinton – old or new?

Don’t get me wrong, I’m a big proponent of complete disclosure – in business, politics and journalism. I don’t like it when companies lie to me, I hate it when politicians lie to me and I abhor journalists who pretend to be neutral observers when in fact they are flag bearers for the Make America Clinton’s Again camp.

hillary-clinton-bill-clinton-scandals-home_0“All of your votes are belong to us!”

FOOTNOTE: Pro Forma Definition - 

Pro forma refers to a set of financial statements that incorporate assumptions or hypothetical conditions regarding past or future events. Pro forma statements are useful for presenting possible financial results, but must be viewed with caution if the underlying assumptions are not valid or not likely.Accounting Dictionary

It’s Howdy Doody Time!

The rebellion is real and therefore the causes of the rebellion are also real. Yet even on the day after Brexit, the establishment still found ways to deny the vote was anything more than bigotry and xenophobia run wild. Perhaps the most damning example of its attitude comes from a Tweet by Sharyl Attkisson:

messina 2

Faced with the threat of an EU breakup, the foreign policy crisis of a lifetime, Obama sent a spin-doctor and gave a speech —

howdy messinaHowdy Messina, spin-doctor extraordinaire

and it didn’t work. . . .

Don’t you just hate it when the Magic Negro loses his mojo?

obama mic drop gify

Somewhat off topic: NBC is running a six hour Fourth of July Howdy Doody marathon, bookended by a brand-new half-hour "Howdy Doody for President" special, which looks back on Howdy's two runs for the White House — in 1948 and 1952 — on a platform that included double sodas for a dime, two Christmas holidays annually and only one school day per year. If James Messina had run his 1948 campaign Howdy would have beaten both Dewey and Truman.

The Good News: There Will Always Be An England

“The inherent vice of capitalism is the unequal sharing of blessings. The inherent virtue of Socialism is the equal sharing of miseries.” – Winston Churchill

 

Well go figure…apparently a good share of the people were really pissed off. Looks like they chose blessings. And freedom.

keep-calm-this-is-a-coup-d-etat

So the good news is there will always be an England.

The bad news is there will always be an EU too.

Capital Hill Gun Control for Dummies

Republicans could learn a thing or two from their Democrat colleagues – now they know how to not lose! Just say NO! Refuse to leave until you get your way.

As is often the case with politicians, cats can best illustrate the basic differences.

Republican cat faces its political enemy:

Democrat cat, dealing with his political enemy:

Butt now the conundrum: the 4th of July is coming up and many of these elected officials have parade commitments back in their districts. So don’t expect many of them to remain in the Capital Hill sandbox throughout the 4th of July break, I doubt that any of them will miss the last plane out of town. They need to get home to play in their own sandbox where they can now claim moral superiority for having done everything humanly possible to fight for“common sense gun reform.”

“Death To America!” - Domestic Version

Loretta Lynch was dispatched last Sunday to tell us that we couldn’t presume to determine Omar Mateen’s motive for shooting up a gay club. And to advise all of us good little girls, boys, zes, etc. that we would be allowed to read the cleaned up version of Omar’s onsite brag. She reversed herself when even the Left was outraged by such blatant censuring of the 911 tape.

Then Loretta went to Orlando to find out why Omar did what he did:

Someday the U.S. attorney general hopes to establish a motive, but this is not the day:

After meeting with prosecutors, first responders and victims of the Orlando terror attack, Attorney General Loretta Lynch said that the investigation is still ongoing, and a motive has yet to be established.

The Obama administration is still trying to determine Omar Mateen’s motive was the NRA, the GOP Senate, climate change or some combination of all the above. – Doug Powers @ Michelle Malkin

Because clearly we can’t handle the truth:

Jessep: You can't handle the truth! Son, we live in a world that has walls. And those walls have to be guarded by men with guns. Who's gonna do it? You? You, Lt. Weinberg? I have a greater responsibility than you can possibly fathom. You weep for Santiago and you curse the Marines. You have that luxury. You have the luxury of not knowing what I know: that Santiago's death, while tragic, probably saved lives. And my existence, while grotesque and incomprehensible to you, saves lives...You don't want the truth. Because deep down, in places you don't talk about at parties, you want me on that wall. You need me on that wall.


We use words like honor, code, loyalty...we use these words as the backbone to a life spent defending something. You use 'em as a punchline. I have neither the time nor the inclination to explain myself to a man who rises and sleeps under the blanket of the very freedom I provide, then questions the manner in which I provide it! I'd rather you just said thank you and went on your way. Otherwise, I suggest you pick up a weapon and stand a post. Either way, I don't give a damn what you think you're entitled to!

I know that we’re supposed to be repelled by Col. Jessep’s words, as well as his worldview. Unfortunately we live in interesting times and more and more of us find ourselves wanting both “The Wall” and Col. Jessup on it.

Freds-Trump-Wall-2-

Because frankly the world isn’t getting any less scary.
