Hang ‘Em High

Wow! You don’t need to be even an honorary member of the tinfoil hat society to suspect conspiracies everywhere anymore:

There is serious talk on Capitol Hill about the appointment of a second special counsel amid several new bombshell revelations swirling around the Trump/Russia probe. First, there are the allegations of shocking and substantial government surveillance abuses under President Obama outlined in the FISA abuse memo. Secondly, the FBI lost five months of key text messages between the anti-Trump/pro-Clinton FBI officials Peter Strzok and his mistress Lisa Page. And now there's talk of a "secret society" of officials within the FBI that apparently met the day after the election of Donald J. Trump to plot against the president-elect. – PJMedia 

Expect to see “treason,” “sedition,” and “fifth column” trending on the Twitterverse.

And as I mentioned yesterday, we’re going to need a lot more rope.

What Is WRONG With You People?

After all, it’s not as if we haven’t told you what the problem is.

CNN’s Maeve Reston: All We Talk About At CNN Is Russia And Voters Don’t Care About The Issue

Here’s some free marketing advice for CNN in case they’d like to improve their ratings: start talking about what voters do care about for a change. here’s a partial list, thoughtfully submitted by Stash 186:

#ReleaseTheMemo

#ReleaseTheDocuments

#FISAGate

#FISAmemo

#ObamaGate

#WeThePeople

#SchumerShutdown

#AmericaFirst

#TheStormHasArrived

#AmericansBeforeIllegals

#NoDACA

#NoAmnesty

#DemocratShutdown

#DemocratsOwnThis

#BuildTheWall

#WakeUpAmerica

Meanwhile, at liberalism’s other iconic gathering of self-indulgent histrionics, the Sundance Film Festival, Ruth Bader Ginsberg arrived to great fanfare to  view the “wonderful” movie made about her life.

“I knew it was going to be good, but I haven’t got words for how marvelous it was,” Ginsburg told a Park City audience Sunday evening, after the premiere of “RBG,” a CNN Films-produced documentary about her, at the 2018 Sundance Film Festival.

She was also impressed with meeting Robert Redford, the Sundance Institute’s founder. “He’s just as good looking [in person],” she said. SLT

redford5At least as good looking as the kitchen sink

And rest assured that here at the Sundance Festival, the country’s premier display of self-absorbed self indulgence, the movie makers and shakers will do their best to come to grips with the intersectionality of feminism and every other ism on the planet to lend their voices to RESIST! And also in order to make a movie and/or documentary about all of the abuses in the world in order to exploit expose it. The ultimate point of course is to sell your wares to a Big Movie Industry Distributor for a lot of money. So you can go forth in the world and do good.

harvey and hillaryBecause nothing does more good than a fistful of dollars

(Ruth Bader Ginsberg) called Park City “a wonderful town. It’s part out of a fairy tale, and part looks like Switzerland.”

Truth is Sundance brings the fairy tales with it and when they leave we’re left with the part that looks like Switzerland, where everyone is required to own a gun.

Nobody Trolls Like Trump

It’s Day Two of the government shutdown. Democrats spent yesterday celebrating and marching, even here in Park City at the Sundance Film Festival. Their message was an important one, according to the Daily Beast:

This year’s rally seemed united by two themes: the importance of this moment for women, and, well, “F*ck Donald Trump.”

While last year’s march at the Fest was said to top out at 4000 (yuge, in Park City) this year’s was exaggerated to reflect “hundreds.”  Of course last year’s numbers included Harvey Weinstein who was marching in solidarity with them, and we all know how many independent, strong women were attracted to Harv, wherever he went, and no matter what he did.

weinstein-1

This year’s march has headlined by Hanoi Jane and Gloria Allred, which could explain the lower turnout.

As snow fell at the rate of an inch an hour, the temperature fell to 22 degrees, and traffic crawled to a stop, the crowd gathered in a Park City athletic field to mark the first anniversary of President Trump’s inauguration and the women’s rallies that sprang up around the country and the world. They waved signs that read “Dream Act Now,” “Free Melania,” “Make Russia Great Again,” and “Our Rights Are Not Up For Grabs.” In one of the more imaginative protests, Nina Kaufman, a Salt Lake City-based performance artist, stripped to a sports bra and rolled down a long banner adorned with a poem about the environment. As she wiped snow off and sipped coffee, Kaufman told Variety that she had been retired for 15 years, but had been spurred into action by the #MeToo movement. – Variety

Wow, way to protest Nina! But wait, there’s more:

Allred, a women’s rights attorney, led attendees in a chant of “Resist. Persist. Insist. Elect.”

“This marks the end of fear being used as a weapon to silence women…this is the year that women’s voices have been heard…and the year we said to rich, powerful, famous men, ‘You can break out hearts, but you cannot break our silence!’”

 William Wallace would be so proud.

Although he couldn’t attend himself, VSG-PDJT sent a message:

Closed For Cleanup and Repairs

walley-world-closed-for-repairs

As we once again witnessed the triumph of party over country, the finger pointing will begin. Because the Democrats essentially got everything they once demanded in a spending bill they threw in the “clean DACA” towards the end of debate in order to have a noble reason to refuse to sign on. So we can’t have a functioning government budget because… Dreamers! Virtue signaling not withstanding, the ball’s really in your court Chucky.

Those of us who think that granting amnesty for 3.6 million (and counting) “Dreamers” – no matter the circumstances of their arrival – is a fool’s game will continue to be called racists. So be it.

But wait – what’s this!?! The media isn’t entirely embracing the Dem’s narrative?ap

Et tu, NYT?nytWhat’s up? Could they be holding Nancy Pelosi to her own words?

“I call them 'legislative arsonists.They're there to burn down what
we should be building up.”
  Nancy Pelosi, 2013

That sort of media treason could bode ill for the left in the face of  #ReleasetheMemo. But odds are not in our favor so stock up on popcorn and pass the ammunition. We are the ones who will be attacked for believing what is clearly contained in that memo, and the supporting documents.

trump stormForget the S-Holes, the S-Storm is about to descend. And we’re going to need some cleanup on aisle 3.

FLOTUS Friday: And We Give Thanks

We road into Cheyenne around sunset yesterday. Cheyenne, Wyoming - elevation 6062 feet -  in the middle of January; it was 57 degrees. No snow anywhere, not in the air, on the wind or on the ground.  It was clear and balmy. And I am truly grateful that the only place in Wyoming Al Gore would ever consider going is Jackson Hole – they don’t mind the snow this time of year.

I can only tell you that this year’s trip has been much better than any number of the nightmarish winter journeys we’ve been on before global warming. So if those of you in the south are wondering where all your snow and cold came from, it appears to have come from the great northwest this year.

We’ll be headin’ up and movin’ out this morning, hoping to reach our destination ahead of this weekend’s gathering storm.

desantis

So let us pause on this FLOTUS Friday to reflect on our country’s good fortune.

The President is Healthy, And So Is the Economy

It must be frustrating for his media detractors and the Never Trumpers. They’ve tried throwing everything and the kitchen sink at him but nothing sticks.

He’s a racist.

He’s a liar.

He’s a misogynist.

He’s colluding with Russia.

He’s  unstable.

He’s mentally unfit.

He’s got dementia.

He’s unhealthy.

Did I mention he’s a racist?

Having been unable to prove any of the first four allegations the media was certain the results of President Trump’s annual physical would confirm the next four. Although the initial reports proved to be disappointing they pursued the details of the results like rabid dogs. Although  none of them are real doctors they all decided to play one on TV, spending a precious hour of their lives conducting a group forensic autopsy on Navy Rear Admiral Dr.Ronny L. Jackson’s examination. Unfortunately the original diagnosis remained unchanged: the patient was still alive and well. .

Some disappointed Fake News talking heads decided to take matters into their own hands: Sanjay Gupta declared that the president has heart disease and will have a heart attack within 3-5 years. A few others are still defining the breath and scope of “Girther-gate.” The rest have resorted to the only criticisms they know that nobody is able to effectively dispute: “He’s old, fat, and ugly…and his momma was an immigrant.” Oh yeah, and he’s  “literally Hitler!”

literally hitler

In the meantime, Apple announced, as Trump predicted they would if his tax plan passed, they are repatriating the hundreds of billions of dollars in cash they’re holding oversees, pay a one time $38 billion tax on it to the U.S. Treasury and invest $30 billion in capital in the U.S. economy over the next 5 years… and give employees raises and bonuses. But that’s okay MSM, you keep reporting on how you suspect the President’s PSA number was too low to be real and his mental acuity number too high. And VSG-PTJT will just keep winning for the rest of us.

Situational Ethics: When You Have No Absolute Moral Values

calvin complicating ethics book

Why is it Democrats have such a natural affinity for situational ethics? Flashback: That Time Schumer Said It Was Insane To Shut Down The Government Over Immigration Reform. But that was then:

Nancy Pelosi called the shutdown gambit “an unthinkable tactic,” and labeled those pushing for it “legislative arsonists.” Chuck Schumer vowed not to use it: “No matter how strongly one feels about an issue, you shouldn’t hold millions of people hostage . . . That’s wrong and we can’t give into that,” he told the New York Observer. “We could say, ‘we’re shutting down the government, we’re not going to raise the debt ceiling, until you pass immigration reform.’ It would be governmental chaos,” Schumer said a week later. National Review

This is now:

You want to begin, just begin, that long road back to proving you're not a racist, you're not bigoted? Support the bipartisan compromise that three Republicans and three Democrats have put on the floor — everyone gave! — and get the DREAMers safety here in America."The Week

Then:

In 2013, during the debt ceiling negotiations, Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) called the legislative strategy of tying immigration reform to budgetary matters—and threatening to shut down the government in the process—as a path that would breed “governmental chaos.” Townhall

Now:

Leading Democrats…have warned that without a bill to help Dreamers they would withhold their votes on the government funding bills, essentially threatening a shutdown.LATimes

But then, people of color have always been pawns in the maw of Democratic politics and they know how to use them to maximum advantage. Because this isn’t really about Blacks, Hispanics or Muslims, it’s about the Democrats power, and control.

Betting against people and hoping misdirected hostility is directed towards Republicans for their political gain seems to be the Left’s modus operandi as of late. It’s not about helping people; it’s about the narrative. And if a million people have to get screwed over for the long term goal of booting Trump in 2020 and crushing the GOP in 2018, then liberals wills hang out the Hispanics to dry. This is about the maximization of power. - Townhall

Remember, in the Democrats book of ethics the end always justifies the mean. That way things never get too complicated.calvin hobbes ends justify meansAs long as only one side plays that way.
