Is America Great Or What?

Well, it’s Cinco de Mayo; the great American holiday nestled between Easter and Memorial Day that celebrates guacamole, Mexican beer and Margaritas. I’m not sure if it was Willy Clinton or GW Bush who officially sanctioned it. I think Willy was really more of a hot dog and grinder guy,

clintons eat grinders

although he would occasionally enjoy a little burrito when the campaign trail diverted him into the barrio.

George W was definitely a Tex-Mex nacho kind of guy, so maybe he’s the one that turned the 5th of May into the Mexican St. Patrick’s Day.


By the time Barry and Lady M got to the White House the 5th of May had become an official State party night. Here’s Lady M looking for her mariachis at the 2011 celebration – which was I believe the last time both Stinko de Mayo and the Kentucky Derby fell on Karl Marx’s birthday.


Remember? That was the year Barry warned us not to get caught between MO and a tamale:

“I asked Michelle the other day, I said, what’s your favorite food — because we were sitting around with the girls. She said, oh, Mexican food. That’s — (applause.) You do not want to be between Michelle and a tamale. (Laughter.) That is true. That’s true. But she’s moving, though, so she can afford to have as many tamales as she wants. (Laughter and applause.)”

Gosh, don’t you miss that articulateness of that man? Anyway, I think we can agree that almost everyone likes Mexican food, or what passes for it in every Juan Don Carlos taco stand across America. The Obama’s love it:


Hillary loves it:

Hillary tamale taco

Why, even Donald J. Trump loves Taco Bowl Tuesday.

So go ahead, get out there and celebrate Karl Marx’s 200th birthday any way you’d like. Perhaps a little Russian caviar would be nice. And what the heck, maybe a bottle of Dom too. I’m sure the proletariat would understand.

Me, I’m on the road so I packed some mortadella sandwiches, carrots and chips. Is America Great or what?

#FLOTUSFRIDAY: Former First Ladies, Presidents and Wannabe Edition

What is it about people who always have to make everything about them? Like the time Barry celebrated the 58th anniversary of Rosa Parks’ famous bus ride by posting a picture of himself looking pensively out the window of a bus.

rosa parks obama

And the time he marked Neil Armstrong’s passing by posting a picture of…himself, staring off in space like some moonstruck ninny.

obama neil armstrong moonBarack_Obama_is_a_pathetic_narcissist

And then there was Lady M who made absolutely every event for young girls she spoke at (rather sexist, really, excluding boys and all) an opportunity to tell them about her tough life and how she prevailed. Whether she was whining about nobody showing her where all the secret trap doors were or bragging about how she got into Princeton by shtudying hard, the story always came back to her. And she’s still at it, telling a group of kids  at Wednesday's College Signing Day in Philadelphia:

"I know you are me, and if I can be standing here as your forever First Lady, then you can do anything you put your mind to," she said.

“We have such high hopes for you. See, I am not one of those doubters. I know that you have everything it takes to succeed,” Obama said. “I know you are me, and if I can be standing here as your forever First Lady, then you can do anything you put your mind to.”

“Your forever First Lady,” seriously?  I see Our Lady of Perpetual All-About-Me hasn’t missed a beat in the fashion icon department either:

9657542zWearing a double-decker denim Alexander McQueen jacket, skinny black jeans, a black tee and strappy sandals, and rocking her signature curly mop with bangs. Damn – you’re hot girl!

And speaking of former-first-ladies-who-would-be-queen, how about that Hillary gal, huh? She’s still adding reasons to the never-ending-story of “What Happened.” Most recent addition to her list was the fact she was coerced into saying she was a capitalist.

hillary hostageHillary, looking for all the world like a hostage at the “Shared Value Leadership Summit”

Apparently they acknowledge the fact that most Democrats are now socialists. No wonder she had to cheat in order to snatch the primary away from Bernie, who once thought “the American dream is more apt to be realized in South America, in places such as Ecuador, Venezuela and Argentina.” 

And get this: even Crazy Bernie isn’t socialist enough for the base anymore, coming in third behind the likes of Elizabeth Warren in a recent poll for 2020 candidates. No wonder he’s proposing a guaranteed job to anyone “who wants or needs one.”

Sanders's jobs guarantee would fund hundreds of projects throughout the United States aimed at addressing priorities such as infrastructure, care giving, the environment, education and other goals.

A representative from Sanders's office said they had not yet done a cost estimate for the plan or decided how it would be funded, saying they were still crafting the proposal.

But since we all know that many people will not want or - thanks to generous welfare programs - need a job, it will be funded primarily through debt. Bernie has just blown past South America and is doubling down on the Greek economic model where employment is at 100% thanks mostly to perfunctory government jobs and where efficiency peaks somewhere around 40%.

Brains Are Terrible Thing To Waste: But 65% Of Them Are


By the 21st century everyone needed brains but unfortunately nobody could read well enough to locate them.

I have been unable to get this report out of my mind: in 2017 65% of American Public School 8th Graders Not Proficient in Reading; 67% Not Proficient in Math. And that’s burying the bad news: in many urban areas proficiency levels are much worse. Detroit came in dead last with 8th grade reading proficiency at 7%, and math just 5%.
reading proficiencymath proficiency
But the schools are more concerned about social justice than basics. It’s enough to make you weep.
brain-initiative-620x420teaching social justice
While the children in the current analysis spent half their school years under the Common Core curriculum, the results are not actually that much worse than they have been for the last decade so the problem goes back further. What happened? Let’s take a peak at the cause and effects behind this colossal failure.
In order to do that we need to reacquaint ourselves with one of Obama’s buddies, or as he likes to refer to him “just some guy in the neighborhood,” Bill Ayers.
ayers obama
Obama with “some guy in the neighborhood” working side-by-side on the Annenberg Education project.
“The former bomber and co-founder of the communist terrorist Weather Underground organization was Distinguished Professor of Education at the University of Illinois at Chicago. The two had worked together closely from the year Ayers hosted a political launch party for Obama, in 1995, to 2002. At the Chicago Annenberg Challenge, “the brainchild of Bill Ayers,” they funneled more that $100 million to radical groups like ACORN and Gamaliel, which used the funds to promote radical education.” AIM
Yes, that Bill Ayers: 1960s era domestic terrorist,  “Distinguished Professor of Education,”
and key architect of America’s current K-12 education system. You see it’s not a coincidence that American classrooms stopped educating children and became instead indoctrination centers. Anti-American activist Bill Ayers’ fingerprints are all over the transition. Retired now, Ayers was an instrumental figure in shaping 21st century education in America and it would seem he shaped it to his own image and likeness.
Ayers, after escaping punishment in 1980, used his position at the University of Illinois at Chicago, to spread his revolutionary ideas throughout the educational system--in the classes he taught, the books and articles he wrote, the conferences he attended, the dissertation committees he sat on, and the political connections he fostered with Barack Obama and Arne Duncan on the Annenberg Challenge.
His behind the scenes influence directed the creation of Obama-era Common Core curriculum which was a  federal power grab with an agenda inline with Ayers educational aims. Consider Arne Duncan, Obama’s Secretary of Education. In a 2013 address to the American Educational Research Association, a professional association of faculty, researchers, and graduate students who work at universities and colleges, federal and state agencies, school systems, test companies, and non-profit agencies (Ayers was once vice president for curriculum in the organization) he had this to say:
Duncan talked about the “sea-change” in “assessments” under Common Core. Darling-Hammond’s tests, he said approvingly, would address “deeper learning.” “Diagnostic or formative assessments” will measure “student growth,” and determine whether students are “college-and-career ready.” Much in line with Ayers’s pedagogical strategy, Duncan hailed the forthcoming Assessment 3.0 that “will shift from seat-based learning to competency-based learning.” The “next frontier in assessment research,” said Duncan, is in “non-cognitive skills.”

Somewhere in the urgency to measure “non-cognitive skills” the educators forgot that “seat-based learning” such as reading, writing and ‘rithmetic were actually the competency skills that indicate if children are being educated as opposed to brainwashed.

Sadly, while “teaching for Social Justice” somebody forgot to teach Johnny to read.
calvin more brains than I know what to do with

All Of Your Opinions Are Belong To Us

martin luther king

I’d take muh man, Kanye, more seriously if he weren’t married to a Kardashian, the family that practically invented the ‘famous for being famous’ genre. Never the less, he’s blown the lid off the entire plantation mentality of the Left. And in true form the Left has censured him not just for exposing it, but for willfully throwing off the shackles.

He was chastised by the legendary John Legend:


Right! Remember that proud Republican racist running for president, George Wallace? Oh wait…

Democrats always seem to have a hard time keeping the party allegiances of racists straight. But they are all very clear on which political party and what ideological template blacks are expected to align with. And God help those who stray.

After legendary hip-hop artist Kanye West expressed his support for President Donald Trump on Twitter, igniting a firestorm of controversy, liberals reminded the nation that everyone needs to respect minorities’ opinions until the exact moment those opinions contradict their own.

Progressives confirmed they are totally passionate about listening to and supporting people of color, but added the caveat that anything they express can be dismissed if it is not in line with progressive values.

“Listen to people of color !” one person wrote on Twitter, but appended the tweet with “(Except for Kanye West, who supports Trump. Don’t listen to him).”Babylon Bee

They might even need to be “re-educated” by one of their betters in the condescending class:

Truly, we—and by “we,” I mean the kind of people who read articles, and even sometimes books, about history and politics—have all been there, in discussions with the proverbial otherwise-beloved uncle or in-law who has seized ahold of an isolated, miscontextualized factoid being deployed for reactionary purposes at a morning-zoo-DJ level of analysis. - Slate

As Kanye continues to light up the night with his Tweets I’m left to ponder why Progressives are afraid to talk about race with blacks who have chosen to think and act independent of their masters. Who is “afraid to talk about race” in any way other than as a victim now?

“Though this nation has proudly thought of itself as an ethnic melting pot, in things racial we have always been and continue to be, in too many ways, essentially a nation of cowards.” - Eric Holder, 2009, setting the stage for America’s born again racism.

Or as Mr. Gabriel put it in his evergreen tweet from 2014:

racial healing tweet

P.S. Kanye should team up with Reverend CL Bryant, “former democratic radical, former NAACP Chapter President, current Tea Party leader and eternal freedom fighter.” Because like Kanye he knows that in 21st century America slavery is a mindset.

How About We Just Buy Everyone a Coke?

“Trump…has frequently cited the caravan as a justification for tough measures against illegal immigration.” LA Times

Question: if the caravan is not a justification for tough measures against ILLEGAL immigration what, pray tell, is? And here’s a little tip from Tucker for illegal immigrants being coached to ask for asylum when they cross the U.S. border:

honduran flags

“When you arrive in a country, you don’t wave the flag of a foreign nation. That’s what you do when you invade. Immigration happens with the consent of the host country.”

But when you are trying to reformat the basic demographic of the United States of America for political reasons, well, you know - by any means necessary:

 Caravans have been a fairly common tactic for advocacy groups to bring attention to asylum-seekers. Four locations in Tijuana were being set up for lawyers to tell the migrants what they should expect when they turn themselves in to U.S. custody for questioning by immigration officers. - Daily Mail

Translation: they will be coached by the likes of Nicole Ramos, U.S. attorney and immigration activist, on specifically what to say in order to qualify as an asylum seeker in the U.S..

nicoleNicole, seen here with her megaphone in Tijuana, trashing her own country for not accepting these unvetted invaders,

So far we’ve been turning most of these migrant invaders away at the border as the San Diego crossing was said to be at capacity. But given the way current immigration law is written, I suspect the majority of them will be admitted eventually, having been well coached by the do-gooders who want to teach the world to sing in perfect harmony.

cokeHow about we just buy them a Coke and send them home?

I say we should quarantine any of them allowed into the United States.

trewhere the oak tree wasWhere the oak tree was – prior to quarantine

In a country where even trees have to be vetted shouldn’t we be able to vet uninvited, illegal migrants as well?

There's no reason to make a fuss about the disappearance of an oak tree planted on the White House lawn last week…It was simply put in quarantine, just like all other plants and animals brought into the United States and its territories.

I say lock ‘em up. But then, I’m so old I remember when people who wanted to come to this country had to actually apply for Visas, not just say “my country sucks, so I’d like to try yours.”

Do you remember Kurt Schlichter’s column from February 2017? The one where he noted that “…finally, the Right has taken Saul Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals and shoved it up where #TheResistance don’t shine”? [ed. - MOTUS has been at it for nearly 10 years.] It’s the one where he points out that of all the people who might have become Andrew Breitbart’s standard bearer, the one person who took it up was the the least likely candidate:

Bizarrely, the guy who picked up the standard and carried it forward when our beloved commander was felled by fate was a New York billionaire with no identifiable ideological foundation who instinctively understood the one thing that could make up for his other failings: He knows how to fight liberals and win. For Donald Trump and the revitalized conservative movement, Alinsky's book isn’t some dusty old commie tome - it’s a lifestyle.


So once again, thank you Very Stable Genius, President D. J. Trump. The troops are following your lead. Here’s just a small sampling, in which the WHCD fiasco is summarized in three tweets:

Alinsky rule #4: “Make the enemy live up to its own book of rules.”


Alinsky rule #7:  “A tactic that drags on too long becomes a drag.”


Alinsky Rule #10: "The major premise for tactics is the development of operations that will maintain a constant pressure upon the opposition."

Liberals they hate you

Got that? Do. Not. Let. Them. Win.

To the Left we are like infidels and/or apostates are to Muslims: they hate us and want us dead. Our only course of action is to fight back.

WHCD – Keepin’ It Classy As Always

This is the White House Correspondents’ Dinner:

The Reds,

wolf griffenRoaster Red Comedian Michelle Wolf and would-be-presidential assassin, Kathy Griffin

white and blue:

sarah kellyanneSarah Sanders and Kellyanne Conway

And this is the White House Correspondents’ Dinner on Drugs:

wolf griffen2

Griffin spoke with reporters just moments after the annual "nerd prom" wrapped on Saturday night.

“I loved it. I thought she really did what she needed to do,” Griffin told reporters of Michelle Wolf’s set. “As a female, you’ve got to work harder, you’ve got to jump higher. And she did it. She went there - fearlessly.”

If by “work harder” you mean trash talkin’ and by “jump higher” you mean like off a cliff and by “fearlessly” you mean viciously.

“I thought frankly the audience reaction a couple times were tepid, and I really felt it was because she was a woman. I think a lot of her comments made these straighty,  backwards dinosaurs uncomfortable. And I live for that,” she added.The Hill

Maybe the reaction was a little tepid because there are still some people, even in the press corps, who are still appalled by expletive riddled rants disguised as humor. But you just keep playing that victim-of-sexists-like-Trump card. I’m sure your dance card will be filled every weekend.

Parents: Don’t let your children do drugs. They will turn into angry, hate-filled ‘comedians’ with hollow lives and even hollower souls.

And just for the record, PDJT clearly made the right choice between the WHCD and the rally in Washington Twp. Michigan last night.
