The Art of the Deal

calvin writes a contract

Okay, drop the Special Counsel investigation matter into “Russian collusion,” obstruction of justice and all the rest of your Trumped up leaks allegations and I’ll promise to get Hillary out of your hair for 10-15 years.

Watching the River Slip Slowly Away

So, I see that Fox is dropping it’s “Fair and balanced” motto:

Fox fair and balanced 2011Back in the day when Fox liked the concept of their motto.

Too bad MSNBC already tagged the “Lean Forward” slogan for their own –

serious journalism at msnbcMSNBC-TWITTER-ICON…or left, or back, or whatever

I think “Lean Over” is still available though, and may be suitable for the new direction Fox is headed.

lean forward and watch the river pooh

It’s not just the river slipping away. And CNN and MSNBC will be happy to tell you “all that is to be known” just like the New York Times and Washington Post gives you all the news they see fit to print.

Where Are The Moderate Leftists?

Donald Trump gets elected and the Left protests by setting fires in the street:

Limo. burns trumpprotestTrump_Riots_4

They form a “Resistance” and continue to riot for months, forming a “Resistance” whose members throw punches, attacking their “enemy” with their fists, sticks and bike locks stuffed in a sock. Celebrities who have joined the movement throw oil on the fire saying increasingly stupid things like they want to burn the White House down. And suddenly every Democrat pol is so angry they have seemingly lost the ability to control themselves and the air turns blue with their F-bombs.

The Left forms “The Resistance” made up of Antifa types and then seem shocked - shocked I tell you! – when a nutter declares open season on Republicans. And Terry McAuliffe’s first reaction is to politicize it by railing about gun control.

Mark Steyn explains how this normalization of political violence lead to more political violence.

“Going back to the dawn of this administration the left wants to denormalize and dehumanize… its political opposition and they do that in a variety of ways.”

He noted the riots at college campuses whenever a conservative is invited to speak and that if you oppose Obamacare that you want “grannies and urchins to die.”

“Once you do that,” Steyn continued, “you’re basically saying that there’s no form of civilized political discourse with your opponent.”

Where, I wonder,  are the moderate Muslims Leftists?

Wake Up: Your Country’s On Fire. And the Fireman are Helpless

I  know it’s tragic and all, but I certainly hope the symbolism here isn’t lost on the British people:

An Inartful Dodger

Today’s Topic: Shakespeare in the Park, an Assassination.

Funny, it’s “art” when the Left approves and “racist” “sexist”  “homophobic” or “Islamophobic” when they don’t. That’s a little too nuanced for me. And poor dear Chelsea,she apparently didn’t know exactly which way to go with the depiction of the assassination of the American President so she rather inartfully attempts to tread water:

shakespeare chelsea

Ha, ha - irrelevance is something none of the Clintons can get their heads around.

For future reference: sometimes it’s best to  shut up and have people assume you’re stupid instead of tweeting to prove it.  I guess Chels was just practicing her politi-speak in preparation for assuming her role as as the face of America’s royals. Don’t let your heart be troubled, Mummy and Daddy know the drill and will teach you everything you need to know.

"Between the acting of a dreadful thing/And the first motion, all the interim is/ Like a phantasma, or a hideous dream./ The genius and the mortal instruments/ Are then in council, and the state of a man,/ Like to a little kingdom, suffers then/ The nature of an insurrection."  - Brutus, Julius CaesarAct II, Scene 1

Pardons, All Around! On Me.

One of the points Alan Dershowitz made in the Op-Ed I linked in Friday’s post:

I think it is important to put to rest the notion that there was anything criminal about the president exercising his constitutional power to fire Comey and to request – “hope” – that he let go the investigation of General Flynn. Just as the president would have had the constitutional power to pardon Flynn and thus end the criminal investigation of him, he certainly had the authority to request the director of the FBI to end his investigation of Flynn.

I agree; I recommend that President Trump pardon General Flynn immediately.

But wait! I’m not done yet…

He should also grant pardons to Hillary Clinton, Huma Weiner, John Podesta, Cheryl Mills, the rest of her campaign staff as well as Paul Manafort and the entire Trump campaign staff - for any and all crimes committed during the 2016 presidential campaign. (NOTE: The pardons would specifically exclude any and all crimes related to the murder of Seth Meyers or “Pizzagate.” )


And while he’s at it, why not pardon all the Russians as well?

Then, as there are no crimes related to the Russian attempt to influence the 2016 election to investigate, there is no need for a Special Prosecutor. So, Mr. Mueller…


“I’ve found that ‘no reasonable prosecutor would bring such a case.”

The F-Bomb: I Blame Workplace Hostility

From Democratic National Committee Chair Tom Perez to California Democratic Party Chair John Burton to New York State Senator Kirsten Gillibrand, cussing has become the new norm of communication with their tribe. Some speculate that they are simply reflecting frustration over losing the election. Not so: despite claims to the contrary, that is who they are.

They own the coarsening of our culture that brings us to this point in time. So coarsened that a U.S. Senator feels perfectly comfortable connecting with her young-ish audience by letting rip with a few F-bombs, so comfortable in fact that they were scripted into her remarks.

We, on the other hand, due to the selective application of Progressive standards, are not allowed to say “pussy” (although they can even sing about it – at the White House no less) or the N-word (although blacks can and even white progs can - as long as they end it in an “a” instead of an “r”).


George Carlin bit it too soon, we’re slowly working our way through his entire list of 7 dirty words.

Full disclosure: MOTUS has dropped her share of F-bombs over time. I blame workplace hostility (mine).
