We Still Don’t Need No Stinkin’ Evidence.

Now that the progressives have effectively dealt with the latest Jihadi terrorist attack on civilians…

Screen Capture #394

we can now return to our originally scheduled programming: Russia! Russia! Russia!


"I am talking about strategies that were developed, working with the Trump campaign. I really do believe that much of what you saw coming out of Trump's mouth was a play from Putin's playbook. I think that when you saw him, absolutely, calling Hillary 'Crooked,' 'Lock Her Up! Lock Her Up!' I think that was developed strategically with people from the Kremlin, with Putin, and I think it is more than bank records," she said, mentioning "visits to Moscow" by Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort.
"I think that there was a cooperation in developing strategy about how they could ensure that Hillary Clinton was not elected," she said.

And if Maxine is convinced, we don’t need no more stinkin’ evidence.

Nor, evidently, does anybody else in the MSM.

Why The Civilized World Is Losing The War On Islamic Jihad: A Final Solution

Ignore all the usual useful idiots - the Democratic party, MSM, Hollywood and universities - we all know how they protect and enable Islamic jihadi.

Focus instead on something that can be fixed - the three most significant flaws in the civilized world’s approach to fighting Islamic jihad:

  • Surveillance/Information Overload: not only is it dysfunctional, it’s illegal.
  • Treating the fight against Islamic jihad as law enforcement rather than war: the rules of engagement are entirely different.
  • Failure to understand the motivations and intent of Islamic terrorists: remain willfully ignorant at your own peril.

Fox News may be headed down the rabbit hole but they still managed to host guests yesterday morning who outline all three flaws succinctly. First Judge Andrew Napolitano:

and then Dr. James Mitchell:

President D. J. Trump and the MOTI already know what must be done:

  • Stop surveillance of everyone’s cell phones, emails and commercial transactions. Profile, profile, PROFILE! Employ surveillance where surveillance is due: every mosque, Islamic center and CAIR.
  • Unleash the hounds of war and use the profiled surveillance information to fight terrorists preemptively rather than simply waving it around as evidence after the fact to prosecute criminal cases of jihadi strikes.
  • Stop denying reality and accept the fact that jihadi are obeying the unreconstructed, fundamentalist principals of Islam as documented in the Quran.

Then, and only then, will the medieval thugs and their sharp knives be rendered impotent in the modern era.

“Network” Money Speech Updated

I was reading this post on American Digest, "All boredom amused:" Rhyming History, Trump, and the Media as Foreseen in Network, 1976,” and wondered how the “Money Speech” might have been written A.D. (After Donald).

It might have gone something like this:

"You have meddled with the primary forces of nature, Mr. MAGA, and I won't have it! Is that clear?

"You think you merely stopped HILLARY CLINTON’S PRESIDENCY AND PROTECTED YOUR PRECIOUS 2ND AMENDMENT. That is not the case. YOU have taken POWER AND CONTROL AWAY FROM YOUR BETTERS, DEMOCRAT PROGRESSIVES, and now YOU must put it back! It is ebb and flow, tide and gravity. It is ecological balance.

"You are an old man who thinks in terms of FREEDOM, LIBERTY AND OPPORTUNITY. There are no FREEDOMS. There are no LIBERTIES. There are no OPPORTUNITIES. There is only one holistic system of systems. One vast and immane, interwoven, interacting, multi-varied, multi-national, MULTI-CULTURAL dominion of JUSTICE. SOCIAL-JUSTICE, ENVIRONMENTAL-JUSTICE, ECONOMIC-JUSTICE AND DIETARY-JUSTICE. "It is the international system of GOVERNANCE which determines the totality of life on this planet. That is the natural order of things today. That is the atomic, and sub-atomic and galactic structure of things today.

"And YOU have meddled with the primal forces of nature. And you will atone.

"Am I getting through to you, Mr. MAGA?

"You get up on your BIGLY 70 inch OLED screen and howl about America and democracy. There is no America. There is no democracy. There is only GOOGLE, FACEBOOK, TWITTER, SNAPCHAT, YOUTUBE, ABC, NBC, CBS, CNN, MSNBC, FOXNEWS, NYT AND WAPO. Those are the nations of the world today.


"We no longer live in a world of nations and ideologies, Mr. MAGA. The world is a college of CELEBRITY, inexorably determined by the immutable bye-laws of MEDIA. The world is a STAGE, Mr. MAGA. It has been since man crawled BACK INTO the slime.

"And our children will live, Mr. MAGA, to see that ... perfect ... world in which there is NO RIGHT, NO WRONG, NO GENDER AND NO CHRISTIANS OR JEWS. One vast GLOBAL GOVERNMENT for whom all men will work and serve. In which all SHALL KNEEL WITH THEIR iPAD, POST TO FACEBOOK AND TWEET 5 TIMES EACH DAY.

"All necessities provided. All anxieties tranquilized. All boredom amused. THUMBS UP" -- 2017

The Irregular Summer Sabbatical

MOTUS A.D. hit a big milestone a little while ago: 10 million hits on StatCounter.  There’s no prize associated with this event of course but that’s a lot! 

The blog was originally created to channel my angst and foreboding about the fundamental transformation of America; I surely didn’t envision being here, with all of you, 8 years hence fighting the same fight, against the same embedded corruptocrats. At least now we have our own leader to help take our country back.

trump maga

So give yourselves a big round of applause:

raccoon applause giphy

We’ve done good! Whether you are a charter member, signed up somewhere along the path to reclamation or are a relatively new recruit we have become a family of kindred souls committed to staying the course and guide this ship of state away from the shoals. 

But as summer rapidly approaches and StatCounter languidly rolls along like old man river, I need to take a bit of a break. Long timers will recognize this as my irregular Summer Sabbatical in which I generally post just a picture, a thought of the day or a drive-by shot across somebody’s bow and leave the commentary up to you, Dear Readers.

This break has become mandatory as the chores don’t do themselves around here, the half-done projects do not resolve on their own and the new maintenance projects seem to multiply like rabbits.


Unfortunately the upkeep requirements of the aging manor house accelerate just as the aging Lord and Lady of the manor themselves grow older and slower. So the long and short of it is I need to spend less time blogging and more time maintaining.

maintenance-1Scheduled Maintenance Throughout the Summer

Accordingly, I’m not shuttering the shop, just cutting back on my hours a bit in order to tend to other business. The posts will be shorter, mixed with some open threads and/or re-posts from the MOTUS deep vault of golden oldies. And I won’t be checking in throughout the day as regularly as I normally do.

So I’m calling on the MOTI (MOL, MOD and FOM) to carry the load around here for the summer - with all the wit, snark and je ne sais quoi we’ve come to expect from each other. Also, if you could continue to perform troll patrol in my absence I’d appreciate it as well.

In the meantime, while Trump continues to clean up the swamp,  Raj and I will be cleaning up and fixing up everything that’s falling apart closer to home.



So Carry On Troops! I Know You Can Do It!

Bitchy and Scratchy

The Trumps arrive in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia:


Somehow the boob belt seems less offensive on Melania. But do you want to know what is as offensive? The lack of head covering. ABC couldn’t wait to point out that although Michelle Obama didn’t wear head covering when visiting Saudia Arabia in 2015,

First lady Melania Trump stepped off Air Force One at King Khalid International Airport Saturday morning without a head scarf -- following the example of her predecessor, Michelle Obama -- and potentially creating a stir in this conservative Islamic country. ABC

she “intended to make a statement in a country where women have few rights.”  Not only does Donald Trump have no intent of making women’s rights an issue on his trip, he had the audacity to criticize Lady M for not wearing a head covering 2 years ago:

Let’s just say his views have evolved on this subject – a position that was always good enough for our historic, last half-black president.

Anyway, I think the FLOTUS looked lovely and quite at ease,


which is more than could be said about our former FLOTUS abroad:

The Ungovernable Left – E Pluribus Unum Amplius

  Berkeley-Riot-Ungovernable-leftThe Left’s Agitprop on Parade: Berkeley, February 2017

As you know my love for Tucker has waned significantly over time, to the point that I seldom watch. But as sleep alluded me last night I switched it on at 2:00 AM and was stunned to hear the most comprehensive condemnation of the Left in America I’ve heard in a very long time.

Tucker Carlson believes the left wants to remove President Donald Trump by any means necessary, and he says this highlights the drastic and dangerous changes the progressive movement has undergone in the past several decades.

"The modern left is no longer an ideological movement. Instead it's an organized movement around identity politics," Tucker said on tonight's show.

He warned that dividing Americans into "sub-groups" and promoting "tribalism" is dangerous for our democracy.

He said that modern progressives don't want to argue and have a reasonable discussion. They want their "team" to win, and some of them are willing to use violence to do so, as we've recently seen at protests across the country. – Fox News Insider

He calls the modern Left the perfect perversion of the American tradition of “out of many one.”


He also warned of the danger inherent in the increasing tolerance of escalating political violence.

Carlson revealed that of the progressives he’s hosted on his Fox show, some have outright refused to decry political violence.

Violence is what separates politics from war. It’s when hurt feelings become dead bodies, the point at which countries become ungovernable.”  The Blaze

It’s a 6 minute clip and worth every second of your time.

The Left has fundamentally transformed the idea of America from E Pluribus Unum to E Pluribus Unum Amplius – out of many, many more - which all but guarantees they will be ungovernable by any other than their own kind. And we won’t allow it.

“That Would Be a Big F***ing Deal”

When the odds are against us, when things look grim, when everyone else has given up and even the cheer team is down…President Trump will step in to carry the ball himself.

“You will find that things happen to you that you do not deserve and that are not always warranted, but you have to put your head down and fight, fight, fight. Never, ever, ever give up...”

"Adversity makes your stronger. Don't give in. Don't back down and never stop doing what you know is right. Nothing worth doing ever, ever, ever came easy. And the more righteous your fight, the most opposition you will face."  Donald J. Trump, Coast Guard Academy Graduation May 17, 2017

So, as we move from RUSSIA, RUSSIA, RUSSIA! to IMPEACH, IMPEACH, IMPEACH! with nothing but a Special Prosecutor in-between I caution the pre-programmed, mind-numbed robots not to get too far out in front of themselves, lest they be left broken hearted.


James Comey, May 3, 2017:

“That Never Happened In My Experience”

Mind you, “that would be a very big deal.” Allow me to interpret that for you:that would be a big f***ing deal.”

And so, let the hunger games begin:


That doesn’t mean we won’t prevail. We’re made of much tougher stuff.
