Enjoy Your Morning Oatmeal

How did I manage to miss National Beer Day? Alas it was yesterday, so it’s too late to have a beer for breakfast.

Yes, that’s exactly what it looks like:

A baby. For awhile it looked like they would have to replace their 12 year old label because the Michigan Liquor Control Commission  suddenly realized that it violated one of their zillion administrative rules that states "an advertisement or label affixed to a container, covering, carton, or case of containers of alcoholic liquor shall not depict or make reference in any manner to minors."

The Commission apparently relented after Founders apologized for the confusion and presented an authentic birth certificate determining the baby in question was actually a 32 year old Millennial. With merit badges to prove it:

So enjoy your morning oatmeal and get out there and enjoy the day!

It’s a Thin Red, White and Blue Line Out There

Tomahawk missiles. Strategic response to exigent circumstances. Targeted. Precise. Proportional.

Oh yeah baby – we’ve still got it!

us military

I don’t mean to make light of a missile attack on foreign air bases in response to a horrific chemical weapon attack. And  I don’t suppose we’ll ever know with complete certainty who launched such savagery on the Syrian people, but I do know one thing: our air strike demonstrates with certainty that the U.S. is quite willing and able to unilaterally assume the role of the world’s  policeman.  You may not like that, but remember that  it was Obama who dealt this mess with his hapless red line statement on America’s behalf that “their will be consequences and you will be accountable. By doing nothing Obama proved that nature abhors a vacuum. And in the Middle East that means it will be filled, if not by radical Islamic terrorists, then some other evil. So if not us, who? Russia? China? Iran? I’ll go with us.

The strike served several purposes on several fronts. Diplomatic relations can be very effective when backed up by the credible threat of military force, which explains why our diplomacy has been hapless for the last 8 years. We have now bared our teeth again, or if you prefer, we’ve woken our sleeping lion.

trump lion2

That means future diplomatic negotiations with China and Russia with regards to their roles in North Korea, Ukraine, Syria etc. will be more effective than at any time during the paper tiger diplomacy of the Obama years.

And I am pleased that President Trump didn’t feel compelled to get permission from the toothless, inept and corrupt United Nations before striking. However – and I’m quite confident President Trump knows this – further U.S. involvement in the Syrian Civil War will require Congressional approval.

So there it is; based on what he’s said in the past I don’t think that Donald Trump wanted to act as the World’s Policeman. Despite his instincts in that regard we are fortunate indeed that he is a fast learner and as the old saying goes “when presented with new information he changes his mind, what do you do?” 

We will assume the Top Cop role because nobody else is currently able to do so reliably. But we will be a Rent-a-Cop so if you are a NATO nation expect to receive your monthly invoices followed by dunning letters if you fail to submit payment in a timely manner.

red white blue lineIt’s a thin red, white and blue line out there.

Yeah, it sucks; but what are you going to do?

Time For the Good Guys To Strike Back

Why do the Democrats only believe in unmasking the good guys?

You may as well ask why they’re always lying,

FactCheckers

“I know nothing.” - Susan Rice

equivocating,

“Sure I did it, but not for political purposes. And I didn’t leak anything.” Susan Rice

and dissembling,

“I voted against it (unmasking) before I voted for it.” – Susan Rice

Or why, when caught, they always blame their enemies for their own transgressions:

“The accusation against Susan Rice by the Breitbart crowd and by people in this building that I think are tossing around slanderous accusations without evidence.” – Rep. Schiff

And now I understand Rep. Nunes is stepping aside:

Screen Capture #348

Seriously, Republicans? That’s the best you can do? You’re going to run out of good guys pretty soon.

Or they’re going to get very, very angry and strike back.

How To Make Chuck E. Schumer Cry Again

Rich Lowry:

Throughout its history, the United States Senate has experienced disgraceful filibusters (Strom Thurmond against the 1957 Civil Rights Act), entertaining filibusters (Huey Long in 1935 reciting a fried-oyster recipe) and symbolic filibusters (Rand Paul making a point about drone strikes in 2013). But the filibuster that Chuck Schumer is about to undertake against Judge Neil Gorsuch’s nomination to the Supreme Court is perhaps the institution’s dumbest.

Hard to argue with that, but in the interest of progressive politics there is nothing so dumb that the Democrats won’t do it.

It won’t block Gorsuch, won’t establish any important jurisprudential principle, and won’t advance Democratic strategic goals — indeed the opposite. A Gorsuch filibuster would be an act of a sheer partisan pique against the wrong target, with the wrong method, at the wrong time.

I say go for it; if the so-called nuclear option eliminates the filibuster for Supreme Court Justices now Trump will be able to easily get his subsequent candidates for justices approved. And if it isn’t eliminated now the Democrats (who have already talked about using the nuclear option if Republicans filibustered a Supreme Court nomination from a prospective President Hillary Clinton) will implement it as soon as they are in power again anyway. So it looks like a win-win to me. Go for it Chuck E!

chuck e schumer (2)

There’s a lot of downside for the Dems so maybe Chucky won’t actually follow through with his threat. Then again, they are a petulant lot -

lame-excuses-crybaby-democrats-to-skip-inauguration-for-fake-reasons-video

so it’s hard to say for sure. The good news is that either way, Trump wins.

Quis Custodiet Iipsos Custodes?

big-brother-is-watching-you-cameras1-233x300

As it turns out there is a conspiracy to investigate after all: the MSM silence/cover-up: ABC, NBC cover up revelation Susan Rice ordered unmasking of Trump team members, CBS gives cover.

I was just asking yesterday, “Where are OUR Woodwards and Bernsteins?” I can tell you one thing, they aren’t working for the Washington Post: Washington Post Declares Susan Rice’s Abuse of Power a “Fake Scandal”

quote-newspapers-that-are-truly-independent-like-the-washington-post-can-still-aggressively-bob-woodward-32-6-0606“Independence” - well that ship has sailed.

And it appears there is a Russian Connection after all, just not the one the MSM’s been looking for. It seems the Obama administration used Russian Police State tactics in order to surveil private citizens – because you never know, they may or may not be enemies of the State:

Susan Rice Ordered Spy Agencies To Produce ‘Detailed Spreadsheets’ Involving Trump.

But of course when Obama’s people did it, it was nothing like the dystopian morality play 1984: 

orwell obama creepy

For that you need a Republican President: Ignorant Leftists Organize Mass Screening of 1984 Film to Protest Trump. When Obama’s people do it it’s just Team Spirit.

there is an i in team

“The idea that Ambassador Rice improperly sought the identities of Americans is false. There is nothing unusual about making these requests when serving as a senior national security official, whether Democrat or Republican,” American Mirror

Susan Rice said (through an attachĂ©) that she’s done nothing wrong - which in Washington does not mean  anything immoral or unethical but rather nothing technically illegal.

Rice’s actions, to the extent that she requested the unmasking, were probably not illegal but it is difficult to find any aboveboard and sane reason why the President’s National Security Adviser would be interested in the conversations of members of the Trump campaign. RedState

Let this little fable serve as vindication for those of us who were opposed to the Patriot Act from its inception. People in power can never, ever be trusted to protect our liberty. That’s our job, and the Constitution’s.

orwell was right about big brother

Gorsuch for the Supreme Court!

Snap. Crackle. Pop!

Here’s today’s big story that you won’t see or hear about on ABC, NBC, CBS, CNN, MSNBC etc. until such time as they have to: Susan Rice Requested Unmasking of Incoming Trump Administration Officials.

Susan Rice, who served as the National Security Adviser under President Obama, has been identified as the official who requested unmasking of incoming Trump officials, Cernovich Media can exclusively report.

The White House Counsel’s office identified Rice as the person responsible for the unmasking after examining Rice’s document log requests. The reports Rice requested to see are kept under tightly-controlled conditions. Each person must log her name before being granted access to them.

That, combined with this,

"Among those cleared to request & consume unmasked NSA intel rpts about US citizens were Obama’s NSA Susan Rice"

is beginning to look pretty bad. And not just for Ms. Rice.

But also for her former boss, Mr. half-white-rice:

vintage cocoaNot my circus…well, you know.

I’m sure you remember how Ms. Rice made a name for herself when she said the Benghazi massacre was a protest and when she defended deserter Bowe Bergdahl for serving admirably.”

So while there appears to be nothing in the “Trump-Russia Collusion!” file – which all along was intended to distract and delegitimize the President - the “Obama Administration Spies on Political Enemies Using the Full Force of the Federal Government” file continues to grow.

file systemWhere are OUR Woodwards and Bernsteins?

What really is going on here is a Ben Rhodes-style echo chamber created by anti-Trump leakers, Twitter personalities with a lot of followers who constantly scream “treason” and “impeachment,” and a mainstream media that is happy to create a narrative to delegitimize every aspect of Trump’s presidency. – Legal Insurrection

Susan-Rice-at-the-UN-300x271

Oh, and for liberals who previously had no interest in White House staffers net worth but are now somehow overly concerned about such things please note that as of 2011 Susan Rice’s net worth was pegged somewhere between $27 million and $50 million. And I’m quite certain that during her subsequent 5 year tenure that miraculously managed to increase exponentially with absolutely no input from her. Because as we all know, these wonderful people all came to Washington to do good.

Stay Healthy: Start Juicing

I’ve run thorough all the important news: one of those days calvin

obama not badNot bad when you’re getting marked on the curve.

Screen Capture #342

  • And then I saw that not-for-profit  Ivy League Universities - who hold private endowments of nearly $120 billion - are receiving billions of federal dollars annually for entitlements like Pell grants as well as research funding.

 Over a six-year period, Ivy League schools have received tens of billions in tax dollars, bringing in more money from taxpayers than from undergraduate student tuition. In fact, they received more federal cash than 16 state governments.

In order to provide critical research like a Wikipedia gender bias study,

my gender is no

provide safe spaces for snowflakes upset over the Trump win,

not my president resistance

and provide sanctuary campuses for illegals. Because, you know - no borders.

But I can’t really muster any interest in any of those stories today so I think I’ll take the day off and go work out at the gym. They have a great juice bar. And I suddenly feel the urge to get juiced.
