If You Must Unicorn, Please Unicorn Responsibly

Yesterday was fun. Well, except for the Orange Bowl. I’ve already gotten over that bitter loss however; that’s what adults do, they get over things. Butt I mean the Batman thing, it was fun wasn’t it?

batman 2

So I thought it would be fun to continue the meme for a little pre-New Year’s Eve fun. Let me know which one is your favorite:

Barry – he fights for the unicorns:

always_be_yourself_unless_you_can_be_a_unicorn_1024x1024UnicornObama0120

Trigger warning! Snowflakes report to your safe spaces immediately! Unicorn down, repeat, UNICORN DOWN!

Trump - the warrior descended from the Vikings:

Hillary – she fights like a witch who will not die:

always be a witch

My vote however goes to the man who practically invented the meme:

always be trump

HAPPY NEW YEAR’S EVE TO ONE AND ALL FROM MOTUS, RAJ, LITTLE MO AND THE GIPPERreagan and the deplorables

And remember, if you must unicorn, please unicorn responsibly:

Holy Crap Batman!

Louie Gohmert said the Obama years remind him of Batman Begins.

famous-batman-quotesLet’s just say Barry is still alive

Super-synopsis, in case you missed the movie: The League of Shadows intends to destroy Gotham (America) believing it to be corrupt and beyond saving. (i.e. “We had to destroy the city in order to save it.”) To achieve that end they combine forces with the evil people already in charge of Gotham (America), release criminals and bring in outsiders to destroy what’s left of the city. Hero (Batman) saves the day.

I think that pretty much sums it up.

not batman

Meanwhile, Russia's Putin decides against expelling U.S. diplomats in response to Obama’s sanctions.

I guess Putin is still trying to teach Barry choreography, right up to the last dance:

Barack-Obama-Dancing-with-Vladimir-Putin-90047

Suffice it to say that the 35 Russians that Barry has just expelled from the United States are the first non-citizens any Democrat has ever wanted out of this country. Which is one of the reasons we’re now saying “President-Elect Trump”.

Parting Shot

We all remember Barry’s first historic World Apology Tour:

"There have been times where America's shown arrogance and been dismissive, even derisive" ... Obama, Strasbourg April 3, 2009

Followed by this:

“We have at times been disengaged, and at times we sought to dictate our terms.”  Obama, Summit of the Americas April 17, 2009

Of course he was referring to George W. Bush’s America, not the new-improved-transformed-by-Obama-America. In this America don’t even think about criticizing the Obama Agenda. Any and all resistance will be considered an unprovoked personal attack on Obama by a hostile enemy and will be treated accordingly. Which is to say your aggressive behavior will trigger a retaliation and you will be summarily dissed, dismissed, derided, disengaged and we will dictate the terms to your ultimate defeat.

bibi-meets-with-obama-empty-chairNo Mr. Netanyahu, Barry will not be right with you.

And if you don’t believe me, just ask any of our former allies. And he’s not done yet – after all Israel still exists! Butt no matter how long Jean Carré manages to filibuster with the

IRAN-NUCLEAR/

“speech he’s been practicing in front of the mirror for years” it will not persuade Netanyahu to betray his country and its citizens.

bibi jeruselem

Butt let the record reflect that our historic President is certain that his way is the right way. After all, who would know more about World Peace than the man whose foreign policy has done more to destabilize the Middle East than the Roman Empire?

Obama-Covering-His-Ears-While-Benjamin-Netanyahu-SpeaksNa na na na, na! I can’t hear you!

Barry’s surrogates will be working right up till the bitter end: drawing those red lines that can then be crossed

by leading from behind. Obama’s America: seldom right, never uncertain.

Make America Great Again and the Rest of the World Will Follow

“When an American president has to issue veiled warnings to Vladimir Putin — say something that Putin should know as second nature — then something terrible has happened. Some upset has occurred. A thing that was previously there to keep the floor level has gone missing.” – Richard Fernandez March, 2014

putin obama“ Ha ha ha, it’s called ‘muscle’ my little golubushka, I’ll show you how it works if you want.”

So, Barry, are you lying now?

Obama administration is close to announcing measures to punish Russia for election interference (from the officially sanctioned State mouthorgan Washington Post)

The Obama administration is close to announcing a series of measures to punish Russia for its interference in the 2016 presidential election, including economic sanctions and diplomatic censure, according to U.S. officials.

Or were you lying then?

White House insists hackers didn't sway election, even as recount begins (from the officially sanctioned house mouthorgan Politico)
 
The Obama administration said it has seen no evidence of hackers tampering with the 2016 presidential election, even as recount proceedings began in Wisconsin.

“The federal government did not observe any increased level of malicious cyber activity aimed at disrupting our electoral process on election day,” the official added. “We believe our elections were free and fair from a cybersecurity perspective.”

“We stand behind our election results, which accurately reflect the will of the American people,” a senior administration official told POLITICO late Friday. 

And besides, didn’t our most articulate president ever already handle the sticky wicket created by Russia hacking our election?

Obama Says He Told Putin to “Cut it Out” On Hacking (from the officially sanctioned State mouthorgan New York Times)

Mr. Obama said he was committed to sending the Kremlin a message that “we can do stuff to you,” but without setting off an escalating cyberconflict.

“There have been folks out there who suggest somehow if we went out there and made big announcements and thumped our chests about a bunch of stuff, that somehow it would potentially spook the Russians,” he said. “I think it doesn’t read the thought process in Russia very well.”

Mr. Obama said he told (Putin) “to cut it out, there were going to be serious consequences if he did not.”

It’s not as if we haven’t had harsh words for Putin before, like when he invaded Crimea in 2014; that time we unleashed the officially sanctioned mouthorgan know as the State Department:

jen psaki hashtag diplomacy

Because in Russia All Our Former Peoples Are Belong To Us: (from MOTUS, an unsanctioned State Mouthorgan)

Yesterday (Obama) skipped a meeting of his national security team at the White House to discuss the Russian invasion of Ukraine to work on his fantasy football picks. He was briefed later by Susan Rice, because she’s known for her ability to cut through the facts and present just the simple parts. Then, after they sent Sam Power to the UN to put a scold on Russia, Big Guy called Putin himself.

After 90 minutes of trying unsuccessfully to persuade Pooty to pull his troops out of the Crimea be told him that he was left with no option other than to proceed with the inaction he called for on Friday afternoon. Accordingly, he cancelled plans for planning the Russian-hosted G-8 summit scheduled in June, and Putin hung up on him. So, rude letter to follow.

Alrighty then, sanctions it will be: because they

“make a very strong statement in a way that is less drastic than bombing a country and more impactful than sending out a cable from the State Department.”

We all know how Barry feels about bombs and if there’s one thing No-Drama-Obama is known for it’s being less drastic.

judoOoh! That looks…drastic.

Because some dictators dictate with their pen and phone;

bo phone and pen

while others prefer a more tried and true dictatorial weapon.

putin with ak-47

Butt now that Trump’s taking over, maybe we can get back on the right track. And apparently Putin hopes so too:

President-elect Donald Trump on Friday shared a letter he received from Russian President Vladimir Putin, who urged the next president "to take real steps to restore the framework of bilateral cooperation" while offering Trump his "warmest Christmas and New Year greetings."

"I hope that after you assume the position of the President of the United States of America, we will be able -- by acting in a constructive and pragmatic manner -- to take real steps to restore the framework of bilateral cooperation in different areas as well as bring our level of collaboration on the international scene to a qualitatively new level."

It’s Kwanzaa; Please Bake Responsibly

I feel bad about missing the first day of Kwanzaa, which was yesterday; especially since it was the 50th anniversary of the made-up African-American holiday slated to take the place of Christmas by it’s 75th anniversary.

kwanzaa

The Obamas issued their standard Kwanzaa greeting from Hawaii, saying the 7 day holiday is a time to “reflect on the rich African-American culture.”

The president emphasized the principles enshrined in the Kwanzaa holiday: unity, self-determination, collective work and responsibility, cooperative economics, purpose, creativity and faith.

milwaukee-rioting-fires-600

He said those principles reflect Americans' most cherished values. - AP

Moonbattery, has pointed out in the past that those values make you more Symbionese-American than African-American:

Actually, these are the values that would make you not American, but Symbionese. They Kwanzaa was invented by 1960s black power radical Ron Everett, aka Maulana Karenga. Even in the swamps of hippie era radical politics, Karenga stood out as a particularly unsavory character. His United Slaves outfit murdered rival Black Panthers, and Karenga himself was convicted of torturing women, using vices and hot soldering irons among other implements. Kwanzaa was created explicitly to divide Americans by alienating blacks from the Christian holidays that unite us.

I would like to point out that while African-Americans are welcome to share and enjoy every other holiday celebrated in America, including our inferior Western New Year if they wish, non-African Americans celebrating Kwanzaa would be considered an egregious act of cultural appropriation. Odd, given that Kwanzaa itself is a cultural appropriation of 3 non-African holidays: Thanksgiving, Christmas and Hanukkah.

Even food you enjoy when we go out during the holidays is subject to the scrutiny of Social Justice Warriors looking for new ways to be offended:

Each of these named foods are themselves the result, not the victims, of cultural appropriation.

Sushi has an ancient history in Japan but what many people in Japan and the West now see as good sushi - with its rich slices of tuna and salmon - is the result of Japanese chefs adapting their traditional dish to the tastes of American GIs during post-war occupation.

The Banh Mi is a fusion dish of French baguette - brought to Vietnam through French colonlalism in the nineteenth century - and Vietnamese flavours.

And General Tso's chicken? It dates back, at the earliest, to the 1950s, has nothing to do with the nineteenth century general Tso Tsung-t'ang, and only became famous when it was first served in a New York Chinese restaurant.

Even your cookies are not exempt;  while you can still make (non-white) gingerbread men:

gingerbread boys

gingerbread bears,

ginger bearSoft-cuddly privilege

gingerbread reindeer,

Reindeer-Gingerbread-MenFlying privilege

and gingerbread snowmen,

Snowman-Cookies-475x475White privilege

although cute, are all examples of cultural appropriation by a privileged class and therefore unacceptable symbols of oppression.

ginger justice

So it’s a minefield out there right now, please be careful or you may be responsible for driving the victims to violence.

RedHeadsBootleggers ginger club

Please bake responsibly and don’t violate anyone’s societally sanctioned safe space because it seems everybody’s organizing for action these days.

Welcome Back Carter, Take 3: Hypocrisy Never Sleeps

Hypocrisy never sleeps: even as the Obama ambassador to the UN ensured the passage of the Resolution against Israeli settlements in the West Bank, Barry  - without a smidgeon of pecksniffery – wished Jews around the world a Happy Hanukkah:

“As night falls over each of the next eight days, Jews in the United States, Israel, and around the world will gather to light their Hanukkah menorahs, display them proudly in the window, and recall the miracles of both ancient times and the present day.

For more than two millennia, the story of Hanukkah has reminded the world of the Jewish people’s perseverance and the persistence of faith, even against daunting odds. For more than two centuries, the meaning of this holiday has inspired an American tradition of religious freedom -- one codified in the Bill of Rights and chronicled in the enduring promise President George Washington made in his letter to the Jews of Newport, Rhode Island: that the United States ‘gives to bigotry no sanction, to persecution no assistance.’

obama-and-erdoganThe pecksniffery is strong with this one

May the flicker of each flame in every Menorah remind us all of the profound miracles in our own lives. And may the light of hope we shed continue to drive out darkness and brighten the futures we build for our families, our neighbors, our communities, and our world.

On behalf of Michelle and my family, Chanukah Sameach. Happy Hanukkah!”

To be clear, according to Alan Dershowitz, it was Obama behind the UN resolution all along with the intent of abstaining in an attempt to tie Trump’s hand in the future. Barry doesn’t seem to understand that Trump simply refuses to comply with existing rules so the hand-tying may not work.

As Dershowitz has previously explained, when it comes to Israel Obama has always been 'Childish, Petty, and Vengeful,’ Whoever could have imagined this sort of evil duplicitousness on the part of an American president? Well, as it turns out, Glenn Reynolds.** 

Obama had barely lowered his hand after being sworn in back in 2009 that Glenn Reynolds proposed that a re-run of the Carter presidency was likely a best case scenario for the lightworker, and while this has been manifestly true for quite a while now, yesterday’s UN vote seals the deal. – Powerline

bo-jc-watermark“I love you back, bro!”

It’s true; not since the inglorious days of Jimmy Carter has the world seen such an American Jew-hating President. As Steven Hayward reminded us, Carter pulled a similar move in his waning days, which led to this chastising Washington Post editorial in December of 1980. It could have been written (although not published) about Obama’s move last Friday:

THE AMERICAN vote against Israel in the Security Council Friday was, in a sense, the essential Carter. There was no good reason of state for the United States to reverse its previous refusal (twice) to condemn Israel for expelling two West Bank mayors…Yet the administration condemned Israel. It evidently did so out of a familiar impulse to be at one with the virtuous souls of the Third World, notwithstanding the complexities of the larger issue at hand.

Don’t say that Dewey and I didn’t try to warn you: WELCOME BACK, CARTER: Part 2

 

**For what it’s worth, Dewey From Detroit was waaay ahead of Glenn Reynolds on the Carter prediction. Two years ahead, to be precise, and then updated in 2011.

Merry Christmas 2016

And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid. And the angel said unto them, fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people. 

nativity_thumb1

For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, which is Christ the Lord.  And this shall be a sign unto you; ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger. And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying, Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.

aCreche_thumb1

Merry Christmas from MOTUS, Raj and Little Mo to all of our wonderful friends who have assembled a very special family here and who are very dear to our hearts. 

We love each and everyone of you and wish you all a Christmas day filled with both the merry and the bright.

Is That Christmas Palm Tree Swaying Or Is It Just Woozy With Grief?

Ah, Christmas Eve! And what a glorious Christmas Eve it is: the Liberals were nestled all smug in their heads; till visions of Trump unleashed their worst dreads. This may seem very un-Christmasy of me, butt I just don’t have time to coddle them today. They’ll have to find their own safe space, the Cheesecake Factory perhaps? There won’t be any scary arms in there, just cheesecake.

So the bad elf season is almost over;

the end of dog-shaming for another year.

elfonashelf151_thumb[1]

And I would like to point out that the chocolate Lab was innocent all along, the victim of Trumped-up charges®.

chocolate labElf? No, I didn’t see an elf, why?

And now, as I do every year, I’m reprising this video from my very first Christmas Eve post way, way back in 2009. It was originally assembled to commemorate our first, historic, Presidential vacation on the alleged island of Barry’s birth. I would point out however that Trump has it correct: to this day nobody really knows where the Left’s new messiah was actually born. 

 From Christmas Eve, 2009:

Santa and his elves are hanging around D.C. just long enough this morning to vote on how much they’re going to charge for shipping and handling on this year’s free gifts.

Then we can all fly away for our Winter Solstice holidays! I can’t wait – I’ve never been to Big Guy’s alleged birth state. I have to remember to pack my UVA and UVB lenses.

I dreamed about our vacation all last night …(watch for my cameos on the balcony, lanai, beach and in the surf.)

Another Russian Hack: Even More Delicious

ice skating

I’m hitting the road today, so this officially begins the Christmas celebration of 2016. I’m kicking it off with Joni’s accidental Christmas song that was a big hit last year:

It was originally released in 1971 on the appropriately named album, Blue, and never really intended as a Christmas song. It's become a staple because nearly everyone of a certain age is apt to "feel a little blue around the holidays," as my Mother used to put it in her understated way. Even if you otherwise love Christmas and all its attendant traditions the march of time and circumstance inevitably means beloved friends and family members are missing from our gatherings. I learned from my Mother that it's quite all right to unwrap that sadness, acknowledge its place in your heart, then wrap it back up and set it in among all the gifts you've received along the years.

With that in mind I offer River today. Take a short trip down the frozen river, discharge the negative energy, then turn around and head back up river, towards the light. Sometimes we just can't see it because we have our backs turned.

Think of it as a discharge that allows us to fully recharge our psyches with the joy of the season.

Oh, and in case you’ve forgotten, around this time last year Trump had just begun his trip up-river and never looked back. Thanks to his strength, powerful message and tenacity this year’s Christmas gifts are very bountiful, indeed.

And now on to the recipes: the next two days are dedicated to festive fare to be enjoyed over the next week or so in order to ensure we restart our exercise program in January. Feel free to re-post your old favorites: I promise to harvest them this time for use at a future date. Here are several of my favorites that I’ve previously shared:

Butt I have thus far never published my Russian Cream with Raspberries recipe, or “the Christmas Razzle-berry Pudding” as Raj calls it. It’s simple, stunning and wickedly delicious; in other words exactly what one should serve at Christmas. When you read the recipe you will see why it’s fallen out of the power rotation as we’ve all grown a tad older and rounder. Still - it’s a stunner both visually and palate-wise and should be enjoyed (in tiny portions) at least once in a lifetime. It’s a little bit tart from the raspberries as well as rich and satisfying like a Bavarian cream without the moderation and fluff of egg whites - sort of the Donald Trump of Christmas desserts. Enjoy.

 

Russian Cream

russian cream with berries

Ingredients:

2 cups whipping cream

1 cup sugar

2 tbs. (2 envelopes) Knox unflavored gelatin

½ c. cold water

2 cups sour cream

2 tsp. vanilla

1 package of frozen, unsweetened raspberries

 

Directions:

Soften the gelatin in the water.

Add sugar to whipping (unwhipped) cream. Heat to lukewarm over low heat, stirring just until the sugar is dissolved. Add the softened gelatin and stir until completely dissolved. Cool until mixture begins to thicken slightly and stir in the vanilla and sour cream until completely incorporated and smooth. Pour into two small or 1 large mold that has been rinsed with cold water. Chill until firm. Unmold and serve with the raspberries (or any berry or combination of berries) and their juice, slightly sweetened with sugar if desired.

Can also be tarted up as individual parfaits.

Well, since our homegrown Coup D’etat was successful,
penguin_army_thumb[2]_thumb[7]
and Trump is now ensconced as President-Elect I say, let’s get on with the cookin’ – only 2 days till Christmas!

And I haven’t forgotten my promise for the ultimate Christmas gin drink. While I generally prefer my gin simply in a dry martini with lots of olives and/or a lemon twist this is a surprisingly delicious holiday variation on the gin and tonic, compliments of Ruth’s Chris Steak House. It requires the purchase of a rather pricey addition to the liquor cabinet, ginger liquor:

domaine-de-canton-ginger-liqueur-70cl_temp

Butt maybe you can find a generic, if not I’m sure it will last for many Christmas’ to come (well, maybe not, if your crowd loves them as much as I do). Instead of a recipe, Ruth’s has put a short video together for us:

And while the pink peppercorns are also pricey you can skip them, or pick them out of the (cheaper) three peppercorn blend.

Now I need to get my sleigh packed so party on MOTI.

Stop Whining and Get Your Tux Pressed

What is it about liberals? When they lose they whine, and  when they win (twice) they whinefor eight years.cry-baby presidentIf they’re totally committed to being aggrieved, nobody can make them happy; no matter what you try to do to make them smile.

obama and the snowman Thanks Lili47!

Ta-Nehisi Coates  - who also wrote a long treatise for The Atlantic about why blacks in America are owed billions in reparations premised on America being a racist country from day one, so you know his sentiments on race – has a new article about how Barry has endured racist behavior during his tenure. In My President Was Black he demonstrates how he and the outgoing president concur on the basic.premise:

“In 2008 I was never subjected to the kind of concentrated vilification of Fox News, Rush Limbaugh, the whole conservative-media ecosystem, and so as a consequence, even for my first two years as a senator I was polling at 70 percent. And it was because people basically saw me unfiltered. I was at a town-hall meeting, or I was talking to people directly, or they had met me, or I would speak at a university or go to a VFW hall. But they weren’t seeing some image of me as trying to take away their stuff and give it to black people, and coddle criminals, and all the stereotypes of not just African American politicians but liberal politicians. You started to see that kind of prism being established towards the end of the 2008 race, particularly once Sarah Palin was the nominee. And obviously almost immediately after I was elected, it was deployed in full force. And it had an impact in terms of how a large portion of white voters would see me.”

That’s a lot of whining from a guy who’s received less media criticism than any sitting president in the entire history of the country. With the exception of Fox News.

 bigbaby.fox news touchingMy all-time favorite Barry poster

If you’ve already finished your Christmas shopping, wrapping and baking the full interview accompaniment is a hoot: ‘Better Is Good’: Obama on Reparations, Civil Rights, and the Art of the Possible. It contains gems like this quote from BHO:

And I would say this, I’ll go back to those black ladies I was talking about who love them some Barack and love Michelle even more…and if at the end of my presidency they feel like I did a pretty good job, then I’ll feel pretty good.

And let’s be honest, Barry feeling “pretty good” is really the only thing that matters. So what if he destroyed our healthcare system? So what if his foreign relations “experts” destroyed the Middle East, guaranteed a nuclear Iran and threatens to ignite a Third World War? [Hard to believe the chief architect of this fiasco lost her presidential bid isn’t it?] 

scary hillary“I won the popular vote, why am I not President!”

Who cares that Barry and his Department of Justice set race relations back 50 years and opted to go after America’s peace keepers rather than the thugs destroying America’s social fiber? Does anyone really care that we have over 95 million men and women of working age not in the workforce because either there’s no work available or they don’t have to – thanks to government freebies funded by unsustainable Federal debt?

Anyway, I got my days mixed up so tomorrow will be Christmas Recipe Day. I promise to try to collect them all this year so be prepared – there are appetizers to make.
