It’s Somebody Else’s Turn, Right?

A random selection of headlines today from the Google search results for Trump News:

Trump Lawyer Asserts President's Right to Keep Tax Returns Private – NYT

Because, unlike you, me and every member of Congress HE doesn’t have that legal right.

Trump is spouting nonsense at a greater rate – CNN

So totally unlike what CNN does.

The WTO just blew up Trump's argument for steel tariffs – WaPo

And who isn’t happy letting the unelected, unaccountable members of the WTO determine our national security concerns for us?

Mar-a-Lago's bizarre breach: a mystery woman, malware and Trump's 'circus' – Guardian

Nothing like that would ever happen if Barack Obama were president.

'No Celebrities': Embarrassing Turnout at Trump's Beverly Hills Fundraiser – Daily Beast

As if that’s a bad thing. BTW, the fundraiser was attended by 170 people, nearly double what was expected and raised $5 million. Celebrities aren’t the only wealthy people in Beverly Hills.

Barrage of setbacks spoils Trump's post-Mueller reset – Politico

That’s the MSM you hear cheering!

Trump says some asylum seekers are gang members – CBS

Prove him wrong.

I didn’t see a single headline under this search talking about the economy, probably because any good news for President Trump is considered fake news by the MSM. Here’s what happened in the non-news economy this week:

Stocks Rally on Jobs Growth

Trump's Economy Keeps Humming: Manufacturing Adding More Jobs Than Government, Reversing Obama Trend

Imagine what the President could have accomplished by now if the media, the GOPe, the Deep State and pop culture weren’t all fighting him 24/7. Why, if he keeps winning, the second millennium BC might come to be known as the SECOND American century! But that would be bad. Because, Trump.

And it’s somebody else’s turn, right? It’s only fair.

Fascism: It Isn’t What It Used To Be

Well it looks like President Trump won’t be shutting the border down after all. Probably due to the whining and gnashing of teeth from both big business and labor. And avocado consumers.

Remember the last time we were invaded by foreigners?

We went to war, and that invasion wasn’t even on the mainland. I’m not advocating war, yet, but you would think an invasion of historic proportion like we are currently experiencing might warrant some short term sacrifices on the part of Americans whose grandchildren will be the ones most effected by this “complete transformation of America.” I guess not. The cultural appropriation of a Mexican condiment is currently considered more important to the American way of life than the rule of law.

Might I  remind you that it wasn’t that long ago when most of our avocados came from California? That was before the Endangered Species Act resulted in the diversion of water away from one of the state’s most fertile valleys in order to protect the Delta Smelt which appear to be heading towards extinction anyway - just like the farmers in the region.

But I digress. During WWII Americans willingly sacrificed many things as rationing became necessary in order to fuel the war effort against tyranny. By November 1943 many items were rationed: typewriters, gasoline, bicycles, footwear, silk, nylon, fuel oil, stoves, meat, lard, shortening and food oils, cheese, butter, margarine, processed foods (canned, bottled, and frozen), dried fruits, canned milk, firewood and coal, jams, jellies, and fruit butters.

Now we can’t even sacrifice our $12 guacamole toast.

Okay, I get it. We’re not that into sacrifice these days. And fascism isn’t what it used to be.

Fine. Then build the damn wall.

Governing By Democratic Fiat

I solved the Republican’s AND the Democrat’s most pressing national issues in my sleep last night. I must have been visited by both Athena and Minerva, the Greek and Roman goddesses of wisdom, while I slumbered as I woke with the resolution to the prickliest problems of the day.

Image result for athena minerva goddess of wisdom

Allow me to insert here my preemptory mea culpa for citing exclusively Western civilization/Euro-centric goddesses as the source of my received knowledge. I hereby recognize my white privilege in doing so and promise to reference the African deities of wisdom next time I enjoy a dream of enlightenment.

Now, on to the problems. Regarding the Border Crisis:

In that we are currently overwhelmed by the influx of peoples from Central America and beyond, all mysteriously seeking asylum in the U.S., and since our current immigration law requires us to take them in while investigating and processing their claims, I suggest we simply stop accepting them. Period. We’ve been overwhelmed, there are no more shelters, no resources to vet them, so we have been reduced to the infamous “catch and release” program made famous by previous administrations. I’m not sure what Democrats would consider a “border crisis” if this isn’t it, but my solution is to simply stop letting them in and send them back from whence they came. Permitting this Cloward-Piven strategy to play out is insane.

Image result for cloward-piven strategy

When Democrats are in charge they get to pick and choose which of our immigration laws they wish to enforce so we should do the same. And we choose not to enforce the rules and procedures for asylum seekers.

Image result for build the wall

The Democrats’ most pressing concerns these days is getting the full, unredacted Mueller Report released so they can get back to the work of taking down this President. They’ve voted to subpoena it. Again my solution is to simply ignore the subpoena. That’s what Democrats would do.

Likewise with respect to the Dems second most important national issue, the release of 6 years of President Trump’s tax returns: again, Democratic precedence, just ignore them.

If anyone still doubts that there is a treasonous cabal actively at work to take down this duly elected president they are nutz. The organized border invasion along with the Russia collusion harassment and now the demand for the President’s tax returns are all maneuvers orchestrated by the long arm of the Deep State. They are illegitimate. I say ignore them. Just build the damn wall.

Yes, it’s the same campaign slogan as 2016. To borrow a (profane) phrase from old feminists protesting the President: (pardon the language)

You’ve Come A Long Way Baby

In an age where we are all so ‘woke’

I thought it would nice from time to time to pay respects to the mid-twentieth century movement that made all this  possible: Feminism.

The feminist movement chose an internationally recognized symbol

long associated with oppression

to express their ideology and objectives. The world largely ignored this obvious affiliation with a movement that was otherwise shunned by Western countries at the time, leaving feminism to continue its march towards “equality.”

How did the feminist movement do in the intervening half century? I leave you to decide for yourself, based on contemporaneous facts and reports from the field. For the first installment in what is sure to become a recurring feature I offer the following for consideration:

In the 70's feminists told women they could be anything they wanted to be. Eventually men demanded the same rights and what some of them wanted was to be women.

Another historic achievement for equality. Congratulations, you’ve come a long way, baby!

Joey: Not Quite Clean and Articulate Enough For Prime Time

And right now poor creepy old Joe is too old, too white and, well, not quite ‘woke’ enough to carry today’s progressivism to victory.

He kept hinting that he was actually going to run and refusing to bow out. And to make matters worse, he quickly established a massive lead in the polls that continues to this day. But the Democrats don’t want an old white man winning the nomination again, so something had to be done. Trust me… this was no accident. It was orchestrated among some of the movers and shakers in the party. - Hot Air

So yep, the long guns are out.

And that’s not the worst of it:

Joe Biden’s 2020 Ukrainian nightmare: A closed probe is revived. “Ukrainian officials tell me there was one crucial piece of information that Biden must have known but didn’t mention to his audience: The prosecutor he got fired was leading a wide-ranging corruption probe into the natural gas firm Burisma Holdings that employed Biden’s younger son, Hunter, as a board member.”

Plus: “Lutsenko said some of the evidence he knows about in the Burisma case may interest U.S. authorities and he’d like to present that information to new U.S. Attorney General William Barr, particularly the vice president’s intervention.”

Joey might be able to maneuver the #metoo minefield with the help of some party regulars, but this Ukrainian deal, well it sounds a little too much like Russia! Russia! Russia!

Boy, not as much fun when you’re the target, eh Joe?

Joey has been around long enough to tell the difference between an amateur take down attempt that can be dealt with by mumbling mealy-mouthed mea culpas and an all-out weapons grade attack. And a live shot across the bow is definitely the later.

Anyone care to start an over/under on when Joe announces he’s discussed a presidential run this with his family and decided that this is not the right time?

Don’t Be Fooled Again

I used to do April Fools Day posts, back when April Fools day came but once a year and was fun. Now it seems as if everyday is April Fools Day and it’s decidedly not fun.

Take the judicial system for example. Dropping the charges against Jussie Smollett made being “woke” more important than the law. I trust this will become the new norm in hate crime hoaxes. And then we have all the Federal judges who have been allowed to legislate from the bench for years now. To cite just a few examples:

Ruling by Federal Judge Blocks Immigration Order.

As far as I can see, and I’ve looked, there’s nothing in the constitution that grants non-citizens the right to enter the USA.

Federal Judge Rules Trump's Sanctuary Cities Order Unconstitutional

Again, what section of the constitution cities the right to not comply with federal immigration law?

Judge blocks Trump's asylum rules, opens door for immigrant caravan – in which the President sought to funnel asylum candidates through official points of entry rather than simply storming the border en masse and  overwhelming the system.

So our system is allowed to be overrun simply because a Federal Judge in California decided to legislate his preferred open borders policy rather than the President’s policy of maintaining law and order.

Border Patrol forced to restart 'catch-and-release' of illegals at border

Border Is Virtually Wide Open. In 90 Days, DHS Looses 100K Illegals ...

And this taste of judicial power is obviously contagious, as we now have judges ignoring the law and imposing their policies in many arenas, such as this:

Trump's Order to Open Arctic Waters to Oil Drilling Was Unlawful

On what grounds? They were “closed” to drilling by means of an Executive Order (Obama) so why can they not be opened by the same mechanism? Because the judge doesn’t like Trump and doesn’t like his environmental policies? You don’t (technically) have that power.


When judges so clearly demonstrate they either don’t know or don’t care about either the constitution or the rule of law they should be impeached. They should not be allowed to legislate as they see fit from the bench and continue to shut down the legal actions taken by a duly elected president.

Allowing this judicial abetted Cloward-Piven strategy to continue to play out makes us the April Fools, and it’s really not a joke.

But hey, let’s end this screed on an up note: here’s one April Fool we no longer have to deal with.

hil ties one onWheee! It’s going to be so much fun being president!

Earth Hour - ‘Better To Light a Single Candle’ Version

The Earth Hour gesture calls for greater awareness and more sparing use of resources, especially fossil fuels that produce carbon gasses and lead to global warming. – WaPo

Last night at 8:30 local time cities around the world marked “Earth Hour” – a global scale virtue signal gesture – by turning off the lights in a call for global action on climate change.

Individuals, businesses and cities in 188 countries and territories worldwide joined Earth Hour 2019 to speak up for nature and inspire urgent action for the environment. As Earth Hour rolled around the globe, thousands of landmarks switched off their lights in solidarity for our planet…Individuals pledged their support for the planet, challenging world leaders to push the preservation of nature up the global

Pyongyang, North Korea,

and Caracas, Venezuela, being well ahead of the curve, had already extinguished most of their lights.

While the Cuban people have been accustomed to toiling in the dark for half a century now.

I must admit, it’s a fun way to celebrate the last Saturday in March each year but I doubt that the natives would be keen on extending it to any additional areas or extending it for any significant length of time as it would quickly become far too inconvenient to their daily lives. If you don’t believe me, ask the citizens of Democratic-Socialistic Venezuela: Venezuela returns to 'Middle Ages' during power outages.

Walking for hours, making oil lamps, bearing water. For Venezuelans today, suffering under a new nationwide blackout that has lasted days, it's like being thrown back to life centuries ago.

El Avila, a mountain that towers over Caracas, has become a place where families gather with buckets and jugs to fill up with water, wash dishes and scrub clothes. The taps in their homes are dry from lack of electricity to the city's water pumps.

So turn off all the lights you wish to mark your membership in the New World Order tribe but remember: while you are free to muck about the rocky shoals in the dark, your darkness ends where my light begins.
