Stephen Green drunk-blogged President Trump's speech tonight. A few highlights:
Here comes the Cabinet. And don't think for one moment that SecDef Mattis doesn't have a plan for killing every last one of them.

If you can['t] stand up and applaud Harley, then just whip out your CPUSA card for everyone to see.

...if you listen without prejudice (hat tip to the late, great George Michael for that phrase), then you just heard the most Reaganesque [speech] since The Gipper himself.

And sitting there in front of the man giving it was the most conservative cabinet assembled since... since I don't know when. Maybe in my lifetime. Maybe longer than that.
Update: Trump's budget cuts are "dead on arrival", says Sen Chuck Schumer.

Oh, wait. That statement didn't come from Schumer; it came from Lindsey Freakin' Graham.

For years, RINOs like Graham and John McCain fancied themselves the face of the Republican Party (God knows, that may actually have been the case). But they are being so massively upstaged by newly-minted Republican Donald Trump that one can't help thinking that a considerable part of their sniffish disdain is due to wounded vanity.

Hey, you people in South Carolina, how many times have I got to tell you: never, ever trust a politician who looks like Eleanor Roosevelt, even if the politician is (allegedly) male.

Why hasn't this radical Muslim harpy been deported? Looks like a pretty big vetting failure, to me. Yeah, I know, I know: "B...b...but Jesus was a refugee". Well, this woman ain't Jesus, and besides...

Is there a way they both can win?

John Perrazo at FrontPage:
It is a classic matchup that places the Democratic Party's unwavering commitment to diversity on full display: The two front-runners in this week's election for DNC chairman are a race-obsessed black hate monger and a race-obsessed Hispanic hate monger. The former is Congressman Keith Ellison of Minnesota. The latter is Thomas Perez, who served as Assistant Attorney General in the Obama Justice Department's Civil Rights Division, and subsequently as Obama's Secretary of Labor. A clash of titans, if there ever was one.

The impartial press at work

Hey, who says the lamestream media isn't fair in its Obama coverage? Check out this hard-hitting headline: "Barack Obama Takes Daughter Malia to Broadway Show — And He Looks Incredible!"

So, there you go, h8terz!

Update: And the hits just keep coming.

The People's Republic of Oregon

What the hell's wrong with those people? Ohhh, I see. It's freakin' Portland, the San Francisco wanna-be.

In a nutshell, independent videographer and conservative gadfly, Mike Strickland, attends a protest, is surrounded and threatened by thugs, pulls a firearm - which he is legally carrying - and winds up being cited for a "menacing" misdemeanor; however, through an act of legal prestidigitation, the misdemeanor charge suddenly balloons into multiple felony charges, and the guy is now potentially facing fifty years in prison. Click on the link; I've only touched the surface of the judicial tyranny at play here.

Elsewhere, the Fourth Circus Circuit Court decides to ignore the Heller ruling in striking down a challenge to Maryland's ban on "assault rifles" and high-capacity magazines, in the course of which the judges create some new definitions and benchmarks out of whole-cloth.

You know, six years ago I had no interest in so-called "assault rifles", but crap like this is why I now own...more than one.

Update: And let's not forget California. Gun owners there are stocking up in advance of the implementation of Prop 63, the state's mind-bogglingly stupid new law that requires background checks on ammo purchases. Per a press release from the good people at Widener's Reloading and Shooting Supply, "Californians are buying more ammo overall and in bigger, bulk quantities since the election".
In the two months since 2016’s General Election, traffic from California is up 50% toWideners.com. Nationwide traffic to the site has remained relatively static for the same period.“There’s been a massive influx of California hunters and sport shooters who are stocking up in the wake of California’s new laws, no doubt about it.” Anne Taylor of Widener’s said. “There’s not just increased interest, it’s clear the gun owners who are buying are buying in bulk. We’ve seen our average order weight go up in the past couple months.”

Dear Mr. President

Here's one foreigner I'd be pleased to see you let in. I'll even sponsor her!

Throw him in jail or run him out of the country

Last week I asked why George Soros couldn't be prosecuted under RICO. In a good roundup of Soros' diverse efforts at worldwide destabilization, David Solway suggests it's doable.

Obnoxious defender of Sharia (and ignorant poseur) is the new face of feminism

Daniel Pipes provides some interesting background on Linda Sarsour, one of the organizers of the papier mache vagina parade that took place after Trump's inauguration. Here's a taste:
I learned about Sarsour’s ignorance of history. She promotes a fantasy notion of Islam’s founder, Muhammad: “Our prophet was a racial justice activist, a human rights activist, a feminist in his own right. He was a man that cared about the environment. He cared about animal rights. … He was also the first victim of Islamophobia.” Her musings on American slavery caught my eye: “The sacrifice [that] the black Muslim slaves went through in this country is nothing compared to Islamaphobia [sic] today.”
Yep, that sure sounds like ol' Mo, doesn't it?

Well, that was quick work

"A wanted sex offender who disappeared after leaving a federal prison in Virginia was caught Wednesday in the District, police said."

Color me astonished. I figured this guy would have no trouble at all blending into a crowd:

Ah, facial tattoos. One of those things that always seem like a good idea at the time.

Murderer of Hillary's career identified

We all figured it was Obama or Comey or Putin. Whoever would have guessed that it was actually...Bruce Springsteen? But the guy has confessed: "A Letter of Apology From Bruce Springsteen for Letting Trump Win".
So I ask again: Could I have made a difference in the last election? Some people think I’m one of the few people who actually could have.

It’s been suggested that in the weeks and months leading up to the election, I should have followed Trump around from rally to rally, especially in September and October when he was hitting the Rust Belt states hard. After all, those are supposed to be “my” people, too.
Yeah, but they're not "your" people, Bruce. They're genuine blue-collar folk, whereas you, with your $20 million mansion and all the other perks that come from being a successful recording artist, haven't been blue-collar for decades. Trump isn't blue-collar either, but he seems to genuinely feel their pain, whereas they were just fodder for your dreary lyrics.

This is my favorite part:
Now, just because you could have shot Hitler, that doesn’t mean you are guilty because you didn’t, right? I mean, probably 5 million Germans could have killed Hitler at one point, but we can’t condemn every one of them, right?

And by the way, I’m not suggesting we kill anyone! This is just a comparison—an analogy. Or is it a metaphor?
I dunno. Maybe it's a simile. Or hyperbole. I'm putting my money on It's Just Bruce Springsteen Jerking Off In Front of a Giant Mental Poster of Himself (No offense, dude. That's just an analogy. Or maybe a metaphor).

If there's a prize for the Most Nauseating Example of Pretentious Narcissism Published in a Newspaper or Magazine, you ought to win in a walk.

And perhaps this is heretical - certainly it is to your fans - but I always thought your voice positively sucked. The slight quaver that is probably intended to represent passion always struck me as stemming from a cluster of nodules on your larynx, and the raspiness that you no doubt believe conveys an authentic workin' man vibe sounds like the morning after a long night power-sucking smoke from bad weed through a clogged kick hole on a bong.

Maxine Waters' intellect continues to impress

The sheer cognitive power of Ms. Waters' thought-box is amazing - sharp, like a hot knife through...oh, I dunno, a brick or an engine block or something.

Trump is the star in this "All your base are belong to us"* video.

*On the outside chance that you may be unfamiliar with this meme, here's some background.

An outstanding explanation of why Trump isn't Hitler from Regie's Blog. Just a taste:
But if you study enough about it, you realize the guy vetting and banning refugees is probably not Hitler …the guy CREATING refugees probably is.

H/T to Scott Adams, who, incidentally, has formally broken with his alma mater.

Naturally, progs had to politicize the Super Bowl, and the Pats were particularly unpopular this time around because Tom Brady and the Pats' owner are supporters of Donald Trump. Here's one of the funniest ripostes to the leftists' political posturing.

Congressional genius and noted geographer, Maxine Waters, has just floated the novel idea that Korea and Crimea are the same place.

A judge in Travis County - which is kind of a minimum security concentration camp for liberals in Texas - wore a pussy hat in court.

Via Moonbattery.

Why isn't this guy a target of a RICO investigation?

Kurt Schlichter tells it straight about what progs want normal people to do. In a word...

Sunday, February 5, 2017


Well, no, of course it's not really unbelievable, I just saw it happen, but...unbelievable.

Congratulations to Tom Brady and the New England Patriots on their victory, which included the most astonishing comeback in Super Bowl history.


I have somehow contrived to delete my blog roll (I was in the process of removing some sites that haven't had any posts in over a year, and I did it wrong). I'll try to create a new one when I have the chance.

Hey, did you know that Audi believes in equal pay for men and women?

One hopes the company hasn't just recently come around to this view, but, as Jack Baruth brilliantly explains, Audi's Super Bowl commercial is really about something else altogether.

The world turned upside down

Perhaps nothing so clearly illustrates the sheer banality and fraudulence of the political left – and, I suspect, the probable self-awareness of the banality and fraudulence possessed by leftists themselves, however much they may practice denial – as the increasingly shrill calls for defiance of the law. Suddenly, the working definition of democracy is any act of violence – from riots to military coups – against a government controlled by people whose opinions happen to offend you, and against the people who put that government in power. Now, every neurotic Hollywood liberal, every parlor socialist in academe, every lazy, parasitical, self-styled anarchist sees himself (or herself, as the case may be) as a maquisard, a hero of the resistance, a guerilla-fighter ready to take down the arch-Nazi Trump.

Meanwhile, the disloyal opposition in the Senate and the House rises to dizzying new heights of absurdity. Senator Schumer, his sleek cheeks glistening with crocodile tears, indulges himself in spouting the hoariest oratorical corn by vowing to help Lady Liberty hold her torch high (the better to light the way for the Islamist troglodytes who would gladly slaughter his constituents). And Nancy Pelosi practically accuses Trump's SCOTUS nominee, a man of intelligence and integrity approved for his current job unanimously by the Senate, of wanting to pour arsenic in our rivers and burn mountains of oily rags in our parks; no doubt it is only a matter of time before it occurs to him to require that the walls of all children's nurseries, public and private, be slathered in chocolate-flavored, lead-based paint.

The rising of the imbecilariat is a wonder to behold, my friends, a giant, gaudy carnival of "progressive" freakishness, stupendous mendacity, intellectual contortion and brown-shirted thuggery. What a relief, therefore, that most of these angry nitwits have thus far spurned opportunities for arming themselves under the protections afforded by our beloved Second Amendment. Not to say that they won't acquire weapons, going forward, but they are several tens of millions of guns behind. This deficiency may not hinder their chances as much as one might imagine, of course, if there is, indeed, a large cabal of Obamist generals sitting around a telephone in a basement in the Pentagon, just waiting for Sarah Silverman to give the word. But I shall keep a good thought.

This should dovetail nicely with the Democrats' commitment to early release of prisoners

"Inmates inside a Delaware prison where four staff members were being held hostage reached out to a newspaper in two phone calls to explain their concerns, including the leadership of the U.S., educational opportunities, rehabilitation and how the state spends money on prisons. Prisoners at the James T. Vaughn Correctional Center funneled the calls Wednesday to The News Journal in Wilmington with the help of one inmate's fiancee and another person's mother. The mother told the paper her son was among the hostages. In that call, an inmate said their reasons 'for doing what we're doing' included 'Donald Trump [emphasis mine - P.]. Everything that he did. All the things that he's doing now. We know that the institution is going to change for the worse.'"

Exclusive, from Paco World News Daily (PWND), is the following video showing a typical prisoner's reaction to the news that Donald Trump nominated Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court...

Fortunately for Nancy Pelosi, there's not an IQ test for congress critters

On Trump's SCOTUS pick, Nancy had this to say: “If You Breathe Air, Drink Water, Eat Food… This Is a Very Bad Decision”.

Well, I don't do any of those things, so I'm fine with it.

Update: Veeshir corrects my mistake (from the comments): "Joke's on you! There is an IQ test for Congress. Unfortunately, it's an upper limit (91) and not a lower limit."
