MGPWW2GA! (Make Germany Post WWII Great Again!)

The Alternative For Germany (AFG) party? They are, literally, worse Than Hitler!

afg posterAFG campaign poster: ‘New Germans?’ Let's make them ourselves."

Wow, is that racist! And for a change we’re talking about somebody other than President Donald J. Trump. This time the Nazi tag is affixed to Germany’s own AfG “hard right” party that won dozens of Parliamentary seats in yesterday’s national election after already winning 13 of 16 state parliaments. They did so by running an openly anti-immigrant campaign.

afg party

And just like when Trump won, their betters turned out in force to object to the racists victory:

Hundreds of people gathered in front of a club where the AfD was celebrating in central Berlin, shouting "Nazis out" and "all of Berlin hates the AfD".

Mathias, who said he turned up after seeing a call on Facebook, said it was "important to show that it's not acceptable here in Germany for such a party to enter parliament."

He added that Germany's two biggest parties -- Chancellor Angela Merkel's Christian Democratic Union and the Social Democratic Party -- "must reflect on how it can be that so many people voted for such racist politicians”AFP

The audacity of it all is nearly incomprehensible to the politically correct German Establishment that has become accustomed to running the country as it sees fit.

But in a bombshell for the German establishment, the anti-Islam, anti-immigration Alternative for Germany (AfD) captured around 13 percent, catapulting it to become the country's third biggest political force.

Commentators called the AfD's strong performance a "watershed moment" in the history of the German republic. The top-selling Bild daily spoke of a "political earthquake".

AfD supporters gathered at a Berlin club, cheering as public television reported the outcome, many joining in a chorus of the German national anthem. - AFP

I think they want to Make Germany Great Again.

Not My NFL

Is there anything that progressivism can’t ruin?

trump nfl

Oh, the left will  blame President Trump and demand he be impeached.

resist 45 not my president

But I’m so old that I remember when - before everything became political - nearly all Americans regardless of color or tone thought football players standing as the National Anthem was sung was pretty non-controversial. But that was BO (Before Obama); before the professionally orchestrated and funded antics of Occupy Wall Street, Black Lives Matter, #NotMyPresident and ANTIFA ruled the mean streets. Unfortunately for the NFL an awful lot of their fans still think it should be non-controversial. And the President had the audacity to say as much out loud, albeit in his typical not-so-tactful way.

While his comments further ruffled the feathers of the huffers and puffers, it simultaneously served to reinforce the belief of people who voted for him that he speaks for them. None of this is good news for the NFL. Or Democrats.

“Don’t Hate Me Because I’m Beautiful, Hate Me Because I’m Rich”

Well that didn’t take long: the inevitable, unflattering comparison between our good Black Earth Mother Michelle and the evil white rich bitch Melania:Melania Trump is under fire for the outfit she wore in Michelle Obama's vegetable garden:

Trump's garden style is less accessible than Obama's clothes from J. Crew and Target. At $1,380 for a seemingly casual shirt, most people aren't likely to run out to copy Trump's style.

I for one was unaware that the main role of the  FLOTUS was to present “accessible” clothes to the public.

michelle-obama-walking-garden_thumb[2]MO’s March, 2009 gardening debut get up

Now I don’t know how much that sweater-wrap thingy over the wrinkly leggings cost, but(t) to be sure, the Jimmy Choos that Lady M sported for her gardening debut in 2009 cost considerably more than Melania’s gardening debut Converse sneakers.

boots jimmy choos

Jimmy’s  current model motorcycle boots are running over $1000.

So you tell me which one of these women looks more “accessible” - although that’s a trick question. It’s the Secret Service’s job to ensure that neither POTUS nor FLOTUS are ever accessible. And that’s a good thing.

peacockpose

For any number of reasons.

In summary: give me the $1300 Balmain shirt any day.

FLOTUS Friday In Fuchsia

I loved the Calvin Klein business suit that Melania wore to the UN for PDJT’s speech in which he was said to have bullied Kim Jung Un.

447BAB9C00000578-4902494-NEW_YORK_NY_SEPTEMBER_19_U_S_first_lady_Melania_Trump_and_Presid-a-13_1505933118638

In fact, I think I even had a suit like that back in the day. However, although it fit impeccably, I would have to put myself in the “not a fan” camp of the Madame Butterfly dress she chose for her speech on cyber-bullying.

Melania-Trump-Wearing-Pink-Delpozo-Dress

All I know for sure is that Melania never makes fashion mistakes so I can only assume she was making a statement with this fuchsia dress the same way she made a statement with the fuchsia pussy blouse at one of the Hillary/Trump debates.

melania-trump-pussy-bow-blouse

The Gucci “pussy bow” blouse alone would have said enough, but when paired with the matching trousers to create a new style “pants suit” she pretty much stuck it to everyone who needed to be stuck.

melania-trump-debate-pussybow-blouse-1476061497

So if anyone can explain what the “hot pink Delpozo dress with statement sleeves” was all about please let me know…oh wait: maybe it’s the “statement sleeves!”

Melania, in just 2 appearances, replaced the de rigueur look of the Michelle Obama era - sleeveless, bare legged and above the knee frocks – with something altogether more appropriate.

*trigger warning*

michelle sleeveless and pits upNo more pit shots!

She just made it quite okay for real women to wear slack suits again without fear of being viewed as an old washed-up feminst, and to sport dresses with season-appropriate sleeves and age-appropriate hem lines. Bless her for that. And let the Melania bullying begin.

It Takes a Village…or Something

Daniel Greenfield’s article (h/t pointman12) is downright scary, but I think that’s his point:

The hysterical obsession with destroying Trump comes from the top down. It’s not just ideology. It’s wealthy and powerful men and women who ran the country and are terrified that their crimes will be exposed.

It’s why the media increasingly sounds like the propaganda organs of a Communist country. Why there are street riots and why the internet is being censored by Google and Facebook’s “fact checking” allies.

It’s not just ideology. It’s raw fear.

The left is sitting on the biggest crime committed by a sitting president. The only way to cover it up is to destroy his Republican successor.

A turning point in history is here.

If Obama goes down, the left will go down with him. If his coup succeeds, then America ends.

In the comments somebody named Zach says that Obama ‘never ordered wiretapping’ (“not a single time, never.”) and claims that “This article was written to just manufacture outrage from the republican base.” Ha haha ha ha…Zach, baby, the Republican base does not need manufactured articles to be outraged. The MSM, Obama and his Deep State operatives provided more than enough fodder for that. If you mean exposing their antics is creating outrage you would be correct, but that’s not the same thing.

Between Sharyl Attkisson’s corroboration regarding the Obama White House’s inclination to spy on political enemies for nefarious purposes and the unfolding of the unmasking scandal of Americans by Samantha Power and Susan Rice,

clown masks

it looks like our worst fears were well founded all along. We can only pray that Mr. Greenfield proves to be prophetic:

And the Dems finally get their Watergate. Except the star won’t be Trump, it will be Obama.

nixon-obama menage-a-trois-watermark copy

Rice, Power, Lynch and the rest of the gang will be the new Haldeman, Ehrlichman and Mitchell.

And Hillary deserves more than a minor, lying, role in this scandal.

While conventional wisdom has it that it’s never about the crime, it’s the cover up let me be clear: this time it’s the crime(s).

Consensus: It’s Settled Science But I’m Not Done Tinkering With the Model

The left is salivating over reports of Paul Manafort’s phone calls (with Russians!) being recorded by the government. They’ll be very disappointed when it proves there was no collusion.

U.S. government officials intercepted conversations between Paul Manafort, President Trump's former campaign manager, and Russian individuals about the campaign.

It was revealed Monday that Manafort, who has been entangled in an FBI investigation, had been wiretapped by the U.S. government during and after the 2016 campaign.

The recordings retrieved from the wiretapping have been handed over to special counsel Robert Mueller, who is heading up the federal investigation into Russia interference in the 2016 election and possible collusion between the Trump campaign and the Kremlin, according to CBS News.

But wait, I thought the science was settled: I thought there was a consensus among 97% of all journalists  that there was no such wiretapping.

cnn trump lied about wire tapping

And as fate would have it, consensus or no, it looks like 97% of scientists were wrong about manmade global warming as well. Climate Change Not As Threatening to Planet As Previously Thought, New Research Suggests.

Apparently because their “models were wrong.” As with communism/socialism however, that won’t stop them.

Climate change poses less of an immediate threat to the planet than previously thought because scientists got their modelling wrong, a new study has found. New research by British scientists reveals the world is being polluted and warming up less quickly than 10-year-old forecasts predicted, giving countries more time to get a grip on their carbon output.

Got that? If the manmade model based on their hypothesis is wrong, instead of changing the hypothesis you simply create a new model. Like Venezuela.

“WHY AM I NOT 50 POINTS AHEAD?!?!”

So, Hillary just might question Trump’s legitimacy after all: Hillary Clinton won't rule out questioning Trump's legitimacy, pending Russia probe. Just ponder on that as you await President Trump’s UN  address.

And  I note that Jedediah Bila left The View “of her own accord” after the hen group went full Kim Jong-un on her after she dared ask Hillary a real question on the show last week. Because, you know, no tough questions for the smartest woman in the world.

It’s almost as if Rabbit Hole Wednesday starts earlier every week.

Rotting Beef - Tastes Kind of Like Old Lamb: Funky and Stinky

Here’s a list of things I don’t  feel like talking about today: the Emmys, Kim Jong-un, St. Louis riots/protests, terrorist attacks anywhere.

Usually when I don’t want to be annoyed food is a safe bet, no?  No. I see that the cognoscenti of New York are promoting a new form of extreme eating based on extremely expensive extreme aging: Steak Aging Goes Beyond Weeks to Months for Some Chefs. This is beef aged for up to 180 days – that’s 6 months! In dog years I believe that translates to carrion.

But if you’re up for laying out a car payment for a hunk of rotting beef that tastes like stinky cheese this might be your thing.

aging beef

The hottest menu item at New York restaurants may be a plate of rotting beef.

Dining spots around town are offering steaks that have been aged anywhere from 90 to 180 days, pushing the limits well beyond the typical aging period of 21 to 45 days. Restaurateurs and chefs say the added time allows for greater tenderness and depth of flavor than the norm.

“I’ve been describing it like the taste of roasted hazelnuts and dehydrated mushrooms,” says Billy Oliva, executive chef of Delmonico’s. The lower Manhattan restaurant is marking its 180th anniversary by offering a 180-day dry-aged bone-in rib eye, served on a keepsake plate, for $380. The special is offered through Oct. 14. – WSJ

Fear not, this isn’t just any old rotting meat,according to Mr. Oliva this is a  “a controlled rot.” Sounds like the sort of thing that would be popular in Washington D.C..

Oddly, just because it’s expensive doesn’t mean everyone loves it:

Which isn’t to say the flavor of the steak is one that every carnivore appreciates. Many chefs say the strong taste is a turnoff for most diners, especially when the beef has been aged for an extra-long time.

In other words, it tastes funky, like stinky cheese:

stinky-cheese-1

“It’s like blue cheese on a bone,” says Michael Lomonaco, chef and owner of Porter House Bar and Grill, a steakhouse in Midtown Manhattan’s Time Warner Center.

And if you’re one of those plebeians who doesn’t think shelling out 10 times as much for a steak that tastes  like roasted hazelnuts, dehydrated mushrooms and rotten meat sounds like good value – well, you just might be a deplorable.

Wall Street Style

The Wall Street Journal arrived yesterday, along with its semi-annual Mens Style magazine. This is the cover:

jared leto

Not shocking, as the WSJ men’s style editors have been pushing metro-sexual men for the better part of two decades and the downright goofy-gay “fashion” for the past 8 years. So the sight of Jared Leto* on the cover of their Fall Issue of the Men’s Style magazine in a “Gucci coat, Lena Skadegard necklace (top), Paul Morelli necklace and his own gold necklace” was not shocking. After all, this former business journal and bastion of Brooks Brothers haberdashery is now owned by Rupert Murdock’s boyz.

What did shock me is how much it reminded me of our former FLOTUS’s Joseph Coat of Many Colors:

hillary-clinton-coat of many colors.1jpg

The two of them remind me of Omar the Persian rug merchant.

I doubt that means anything, but then again, what does these days?

No Wait, That’s My Dream!

I apologize for continuing to rail against Hillary Clinton but she continues to irritate like a boil that’s been festering for a quarter of a century.

“I suppose I could have stayed home and baked cookies and had teas, but what I decided to do was to fulfill my profession, which I entered before my husband was in public life.” – Hillary Clinton, 1992

In saner times that comment alone would have served to thwart the unbridled ambition of such a smug, bitchy woman. But in the age that delivered the Magic Negro to the White House this sort of rhetoric served to cement her feminist victim bona fides.

Holding those entitlement credentials make it simply impossible for her to relinquish the stage to the legitimate winner of the presidential contest. Continuing to break ground as the country’s Whiner-in-Chief she feels free to criticize the president like no previous loser has ever dared. Here’s what she told MSNBC's Rachel Maddow:

"I'm hoping that on the really big issues there's enough authority to be able to restrain and contain the president. That's what we all have to hope because I think this president and some of the people around him pose a clear and present danger to our country."

Funny how she never noticed how President Obama and “some of the people around him” presented a clear and present danger to citizens of this country. I can think of at least 4 people placed in line of that ‘clear and present danger’ that wish she had decided to stay home and bake cookies instead of fulfilling her “profession.”

But hey, Hilz, you just keep telling the story your way.

FLOTUS Friday: Being FLOTUS, Rule Number One

It’s FLOTUS Friday already and - as I believe I promised after last week’s marathon, no Lady M pictures for at least a week - I’ll highlight a different former FLOTUS. Let’s start with a little quiz question.

Q.  How many people can an ex-FLOTUS off-load blame on for a humiliating presidential election loss?

A.  Forty-one, give or take: Meet the Hillary blame list - FORTY-ONE and counting.

In a companion piece, Piers Morgan shared a few observations on Hill’s blame-a-palooza blockbuster.

'What happened' is the title of Hillary Clinton's new 464-page book.

The answer, it transpires, is the most whiny, self-pitying, deluded load of literary claptrap written since Kim Kardashian's 'I was empowering women' defense for posting naked bird-flipping selfies.

Ah yes, Kimmie does like her selfies:

55c42f058fbf768838dc52d4_kim-kardashian-hillary-clinton-selfie150806235204-hillary-clinton-kim-kardashian-kanye-selfie-exlarge-169Even selfies with Kimmie and Kanye Kouldn’t help Krooked Hillary, possibly because Kim was the only one who heard Hillary’s goals for our country.

Summing things up, Hillary asks herself: 'What makes me such a lightning rod for fury? I'm at a loss.'

hillary why aren't I 50 points ahead

Hmmm, where do we start?

The truth is that everyone knows exactly what happened.

Hillary ran a diabolically elitist and blinkered campaign that basically boiled down to this mantra: 'Trump's disgusting, his supporters are a basket of deplorable idiots, I'm a brilliant woman, my husband used to be President, and I have lots of rich, famous friends – so vote for me…'

America didn't vote for Hillary because they didn't like what she represents and rejected her vague, unimaginative vision for the country.

It's as simple as that and to pretend otherwise is to ignore the harsh, cold reality that the most qualified candidate in history lost to the least qualified candidate in history.

Wait, I thought Barack Hussein Obama was the most highly qualified community organizer candidate in history.

Oh well, let’s turn now to an example in how to be a real FLOTUS. There really aren’t that many rules but Rule Number One is a rather important one to master: try to look like you don’t want to strangle your husband. (Here’s where I would normally inject a gratuitous picture of Lady M, looking like she wished her president-husband would drop dead, but(t) I promised…supply your own image if you’d like, there are dozens to choose from.)

So let’s look at few highlights from FLOTUS Melania’s very busy day:

Screenshot Studio capture #2754P.M. working hurricane relief in Florida

Nobody should be able to look that good all day long. That’s all I’ve got to say.

Gravy, On Everything

Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi went to the White House to have dinner with President Trump last night.  Afterwards there were two versions of what they had: the Dems claim they had meat, no gravy. The President says they had meat with gravy on the side which the Dems refused because they were afraid it might have poison mushrooms in it.

1011p206-mushroom-gravy-x

So he’s saving the gravy for the next time they come to dinner.

The truth, as usual, is somewhere between; they actually had Chinese food with chocolate pie for dessert.

Cultural appropriation!! l_1543_beef-stir-fry-carrots-broccoli-CUT1

Microaggression! chocolate pie

Somebody call Deep State Media! It’s over, the Trump presidency is DEAD.

Again, in reality, the truth is somewhere in between and I for one don’t believe for a moment that President Trump intends to give up his gravy.

Rabbit Hole Wednesday – Hillary’s Book Signing Edition

846071440Please, just shut your rabbit hole

There Was a Vagina Fashion Show at New York Fashion Week -  no wait, that’s not the right story. I’m supposed to be reporting on Hillary’s book signing in New York; right, here it is:  Hillary Clinton’s Book Signing Was As Insufferable As You’d Expect.

Yes, Hillary finally crawled out of the hole she fell into while stumbling around in the woods of Chappaqua. She appears to have spent her time in the hole writing a book that deconstructs her spectacular loss to Donald J. Trump because everybody was dying to know WHAT HAPPENED!?  She managed to create a spectacular tome of creative non-fiction in which she makes vain attempts at taking “full responsibility” for losing the election  while simultaneously spinning tales that shift the blame to everyone else. Specifically she fingers  Comey, the FBI, Obama, Biden, Sanders, Putin, Macedonia content farms, misogyny, the media, and “gullible Americans” aka Deplorables.

All that time, all her experience and she still couldn’t manage to lie with sufficient grace and conviction to persuade even former fan-girls.

hillary blame yourself

And that leaves the rest of us in the alternate reality rabbit hole of Hillary’s world. But here, let the New York Post author explain:

Among the enduring criticisms of Hillary Clinton: Her sense of entitlement is limitless. She’s tone-deaf and doesn’t understand the average American — nor does she care to. Her greed is insatiable.

Add to this a gaping lack of self-awareness, and you have all the ingredients for the New York City launch of Hillary’s nationwide book tour Tuesday morning…

For Hillary supporters, this event was meant to be a salve, a corrective, a moment of collective grief and healing…

Hillary’s attendees were willing to follow any directive. There were many, and here, in part, were the written instructions:

“A limited number of wristbands for entry will be distributed on a first-come, first-served basis with purchase of the featured title at Barnes & Noble Union Square. Hillary Rodham Clinton will sign copies of her new release, What Happened and the 2017 illustrated children’s edition of It Takes a Village, no exceptions or personalizing. She will sign up to two books per customer, one of which must be What Happened. No other books or memorabilia please. Posed photos or selfies will not be taking place . . . Book purchase and wristbands are both required to meet the author, no exceptions. Customers without wristbands will not be allowed to participate in any capacity.”

ban bossy hillaryDemocrats should have followed their own advice

In other words, everyone was here to serve two purposes: To make sure “What Happened” debuts at No. 1 on the bestseller list and to line Hillary’s pocket…

This book, we’ve been told, will show us a different Hillary, a humbled candidate taking personal responsibility for her loss. Yet just as that’s not true…in hawking it, she can’t help but revert to form. Wait for hours, sweat it out, love her all you want — she’s popping in for your cash, nothing more.

hill surprise “Then the Big Bad Wolf huffed and puffed and blew my house down! And that’s ‘What Happened’”

And that’s this week’s report from the rabbit hole.

My Gun Is Empty; Don’t Make Me Pull the Trigger

Following the shooting of Rep. Steve Scalise at the hands of a deranged liberal terrorist, Rep. Thomas Massie introduced a bill for national reciprocity. This bill would make it so concealed carry license would be treated like marriage licenses or drivers licenses; a permit in one state would be recognized in every other state.

The bill, however, has stalled, and Massie points the finger for this squarely at Speaker of the House Paul Ryan. – Bearing Arms

Second Amendment rights, long considered the Republicans purview, are being kicked down the road by Paul Ryan. As Glenn Reynolds, Instapundit wondered outloud: WAIT, PAUL RYAN IS BLOCKING CONCEALED CARRY RECIPROCITY? So what, exactly, is he good for?

ryan-unhappyYeah, we give up too.

One is tempted to say the only thing he’s good for at this point is to do the Democrats’ bidding.

Speaker Paul Ryan will not allow Congressional action on national concealed carry reciprocity to move bills forward, Rep. Thomas Massie told host Mark Walters Thursday on Armed American Radio.  The reason given is Ryan thinks the timing isn’t right to consider H.R. 2909, the D.C. Personal Protection Reciprocity Act, a supplement to state reciprocity provisions of H.R. 38.

Paul-RyanYou’ve been outed as a beard

I assume that the only time Mr. Ryan would consider the timing “right” would be after the Republicans lose the House and Senate in the Midterms. Then he can once again complain that the Democrats are blocking its passage.

To quote General Kelley, although he was referring to a different Democrat  at the time, “as my blessed mother used to say ‘empty barrels make the most noise.’”

Remember Eric Cantor? He was another empty barrel who made a lot of noise until the door hit him on the way out.
