Market Maneuvers

Two things tripped my radar on the economy. First is the gas prices and the rise in oil prices.(71.00 ^) There is a point where it is counter productive to the economy.

I don’t know that exact number but already the gas prices are having an effect. And excessive inventories have gone down. Consumer demand goes down, even while the economy is heated up. So when does the lower demand cool the economy?

The second is a lesser known rise in lumber and building material costs. Lumber futures increased 66% over the last year. (Bloomberg) That’s stunning. What effect will that have on the economy? Maybe the better question is what effect will both factors have on the economy — and on growth? At a time when we are trying to break 3% growth.

Parkland School aftermath price tag

Some things just make you go barf.

Scot Peterson, disgraced Parkland school cop, starts getting $8,702-a-month pension

Fox News

Scot Peterson, a former deputy with the Broward County Sheriff’s Office, has reportedly started to receive a hefty pension — three months after he retired amid the aftermath of the mass shooting in Parkland, Florida.

Peterson, a 33-year law enforcement veteran, was the resource deputy stationed at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School on Feb. 14 when 17 people were killed by gunfire.

As one of the largest mass shootings in modern U.S. history unfolded, Peterson never entered the building where alleged gunman Nikolas Cruz was opening fire and instead took up a position outside the building that was under attack.

Peterson, 55, was widely criticized for his actions and Broward Sheriff Scott Israel opened an internal investigation. The deputy resigned and retired on Feb. 23, “rather than face possible termination.”

Peterson, the Sun-Sentinel reported, has received a monthly state pension of $8,702.35 since April. He was paid $101,879.03 last year, according to the news outlet, which cited sheriff’s office records.

I guess they don’t call him a resource officer for nothing.
Excuse me while I hurl, no comment.

Ode to McCain

First of all, my compassion and prayers to John McCain and his family for real life experiences he and all are going through. Let me get that out of the way. Sigh.

The recent comments by a White House staffer, Kelly Stadler, said in a staff meeting about McCain — “he is dying anyway” — might be unfortunate, wrong or some degree of tacky. But then she did apologize by calling Meghan McCain. That should do it, no? No, it didn’t.

Meghan McCain went on The View the next day and laces into her. She said:

“”The thing that surprises me most is … I don’t understand what kind of environment you’re working in when that would be acceptable and you can come to work the next day and still have a job.” That’s all I have to say about that, she said.

 

Well, back last year, McCain delivered a scathing “indictment” as it was called by media to a grand audience, while receiving a Liberty Medal award.

“[Lose] the obligations of international leadership, and the duty to remain the last best hope of earth for the sake of some half-baked, spurious nationalism cooked up by people who would rather find scapegoats than solve problems.”

Trump said, after McCain’s remarks back then that:

“Yeah well, I hear it. And people have to be careful because at some point I fight back. I’m being very nice. I’m being very, very nice. But at some point I fight back, and it won’t be pretty,” he told the Chris Plante Show.

Then the View chastised Trump for his measured restraint, by scolding him:

Whoopi Goldberg: “Mr….all I can say is ‘have you no shame, have you no shame, have you no shame?’ Damn!”

During Whoopi’s remarks Meghan McCain was heard saying “no” in agreement. It takes a lot to put the View in agreement with Meghan on anything. Whooppi went on to say “you tweet about the NFL, man, what are you doing? You bonehead!” Meghan chimed in about Trump’s comments:

“Oh my gosh. Listen, I was here yesterday with you guys when this story brake and I hate, I hate this fighting between my father and President Trump because when we were talking about service and things like that, I just find it SO deeply sacred. And this is highly politicized.

My father and President Trump have DEEP disagreements on the future of America, DEEP disagreements on the role of America globally, about the role of the Republican Party… and whom should be leading it. And my father, God love him, at 81 years old fighting brain cancer, is still out there having something to say…and I’m so proud.

There is a complete lack of courage in DC right now on all sides, all sides, all the way around, the lack of courage to go up and stand for what you believe in and for me, I….”

Of course the rest of the View jumped in on that to say it is not Democrats who lack courage, and that they aren’t in control of power.

 

Meghan likes to swim in it when it suits her and her family. However, the lack of courage is what Trump is breaking through. How many people are grateful that he stands up to the same old same old, and all his supporters who found their voice through him?

Up to the current comment at some staff meeting within the White House.

Immediately, now, they are calling for Kelly Stadler to be fired and MSM is stirring the bonfire on The View and in Meghan McCain’s response. “It’s offensive, it’s hurtful,” says Ana Navarro. (self-righteous talking head who claims to speak as some Republican conscience) “She should be fired,” Navarro said.

So this is the John McCain that can say anything he wants broad brushing whole swaths of people, the sitting president, and/or anyone who disagrees with him with pejorative names. Then Ana Navarro called him “graceful”.

Meghan McCain summed up her latest comments about the critics of John McCain: “My father’s legacy will be talked about for hundreds and hundreds of years,” McCain said. “These people? Nothingburgers. Nobody is going to remember you.”

She also commented toward General Mcinerney for his statement on the Haspel confirmation: “torture worked on McCain, that’s why they call him Somgbird.”

Meghan said “At some point when you’re tortured everyone breaks.”

 

So now we are nothingburgers too. I’ll add that to my long list. What I want to know is one simple thing. Why does McCain habitually get to have the last word?

This idea Sen John McCain must have the last word about everything and no one is allowed to say anything is hogwash. I detest that notion. Where does that come from?

I’ve been called an agent of intolerance, a wacko-bird, among so many other things, and am now told to “go to hell” if I disagree with his handling the dirty dossier. It was McCain that injected it into the bloodstream of the government.

But McCain must always have the last word? We have to shut up? We are not allowed to respond to McCain’s hostile attacks on Trump or Americans. I do not accept it.

Notice too how it usually is McCain or his family who stir up and incite this feud with Trump, conservatives, or us supporters. It’s what John does. We’ve been McCain’s whipping post for at least 18 years. Often it is personal invective and sheer bitterness.

Trump is a counter puncher and does respond, unlike some other people. He has said things in response to McCain’s salvos. Then, when someone complains about McCain, or what he has done, he lashes out and media comes blaming us as the cause of consternation. He picks the fight. That seems to be his way of getting publicity or ginning it up.

 

Here is the problem: media and the left look for anything to use as a wedge between McCain, Trump and conservatives. They want to stir Republican feuds. It is no secret McCain is not well liked. He doesn’t like us, it’s common knowledge. So they create or use every chance they get to feign outrage on behalf of poor John McCain. But why does McCain play along? Why does he have to say anything? He can’t let it go….like we’re supposed to. Trump let it pass when McCain called us spurious nationalists and demeaned our motives. Media tried to provoke Trump to respond. And Meghan plays right along.

On top of that the self-anointed word police in the mainstream media make issues over every statement. They are the street cops — considering they openly called Trump a liar among other things. Who appointed them? I’m tired of McCain’s victimhood.

All the things that were said to and about Trump in the last 2 years — hateful personal attacks about his ability or stability — and yet no one in media or “talking head land” has come out to suggest McCain might consider stepping aside, in view of his medical and physical impediments. Wow, just stunning hypocrisy at its worst.

So Let all those media firings begin immediately for their grievous offenses. Hypocrisy.
McCain has brought this on himself, but he squeals at every response from his victims.

McCain now clearly wants to haunt us for years with his memoir, while we are supposed to be unable to respond because he is a hero or some phony, sainted pillar of bipartisanship. Here I thought, I mean it sure seemed like, our response is what he wanted.

Rosenstein down the Swamp sewer

Let the Purge Begin=> Dirty Cop Rod Rosenstein Knows His Days in Government Are Numbered

Gateway Pundit

Dirty Cop Rod Rosenstein knows his days at the Department of Justice are numbered.
Rosenstein is a dead man walking – and being fired may be the least of his worries.

In April The Gateway Pundit reported that the US is now in a constitutional crisis due to the unconstitutional and corrupt Mueller investigation kept in place by corrupt FBI and DOJ Leadership.

http://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2018/05/let-the-purge-begin-dirty-cop-rod-rosenstein-knows-his-days-in-government-are-numbered/

So hot Rod Rosenstein wrote a detailed letter recommending the firing of James Comey. Then Rod promptly opened a Special Counsel investigation afterward, based partly on Comey’s firing as obstruction of justice, and at Coney’s persuasion. He appointed Comey’s good friend, Mueller, and made himself a witness in the obstruction inquisition, Russia investigation he opened. No conflict there?

For Comey: When does someone get fired for insubordination and bad conduct get to have his best friend appointed as a Special Counsel to investigate the president’s action, and insert himself as a key witness in it? All the pigs are flying, very nicely too.

The Dishonest Political Paradigm

When Trump points to media and calls them the most dishonest people, I have to disagree. The most dishonest people are the Democrats. MSM is only one of their sub groups.

You can count on one thing, whatever Democrats tell you an election is about or what they are running on, it is a lie. They can’t help themselves.

They say they are not running on impeachment. If they won, it would be the first thing on the agenda. Right above removing the tax cuts. Obstruction being the second item.

If Dems tell you that they are now about jobs and the economy, no they aren’t. They’ll claim that is their focus. But the Democrats’ agenda is a cultural cocktail of:

Open borders, pro-illegal immigration, saving sanctuary cities, sexology. turning education into their cauldron of sociology perversion, multiplying biological gender categories, tearing money away from too-rich people, building the socialist state, preserving the murder of humanity’s most innocent lives, redefining America as the Blame Capitol of the world, antisemitism, hating Israel, removing God from society, preserving the Swamp;…

Abolishing ICE, Appeasing terrorists, blaming terrorism on America, undermining and gutting our military defense, abolishing the second amendment, obstructing Trump’s agenda and nominations, stopping free speech of their opponents. protecting cop killers and criminals, using teacher unions and radicalized agendas to control schools, preserving the poor, and pushing their economy-busting regulation and global warming agenda.

Much of which opposes a thriving economy. Including their war on energy, and catering to our economic or technological competitors. Then there is their leftist assault on the Supreme Court as the fail safe defender of the progressive cultural evolution.

Chaos is the currency

You know what is amazing to me is the volume of opposition to Trump, given what that opposition’s politics are. Something appears amiss.

You think I sound odd? I know we all accept the opposition for what it is. A telling signal: one of the Left’s chief complaints is that Trump has so much chaos.

Panneta said that Priebus recently told him that Trump uses chaos as political leverage. Well, yes. Maybe what they don’t like about him… and we do.

But face it, at the core leftists are radicals, I think they validated that. What comes from radicals? Chaos. And they have a problem with it, or with Trump functionally using chaos to his advantage? Go figure. So why should they have such a problem with either?

The left creates chaos as a byproduct of their agenda. But now we have a guy who can use chaos constructively to his advantage. That probably scares them. Actually that debugs their opposition and undermines their political strategy.

Look, it is very simple, we are fighting radicals and have been for some time. The normal conventional means did not cut it, certainly not efficiently. It requires some creative, unconventional means to effectively fight radicals, and win consistently. That is where Trump’s tactics come in nicely with our strategy. If it is one thing everyone agrees on, it is that Trump is unconventional. But I have not seen a more effective manager of chaos.

No tears for Schneiderman now? Woe to hypocrisy

On the AG Eric Schneiderman sex abuse scandal, Tammy Bruce laid out the rationale. Dems Protected by the same Democrat Party that claims to rail against abuse.

She noted on Fox News that:

“All these liberal men clothe themselves in the cloak of feminism. Weinstein did the same thing, Bill Clinton was doing the same thing. It was all about ‘we’re your protectors, we’re your advocates.’ And that had kept them safe.”

See article — Washington Times.

“Liberal women must begin to reject the training …that convinces them anyone who does not pay allegiance to the liberal agenda is the enemy. The liberal leadership insistence that those who are not liberal are to be hated must be jettisoned. This action could inspire, … more free thinking, but also more independence, better relationships and safer lives.”

— Tammy Bruce, president of Independent Women’s Voice, author and Fox News contributor, is a radio talk show host.

new study from the Public Religion Research Institute reveals just how badly social conservatives are losing the battle over marriage and sexuality. Not only do two-thirds of Americans polled support so-called gay marriage, but even among evangelicals, support is rapidly growing. The majority of evangelical youth now reject Christ’s teaching on the subject.

Outcomes like this surprise too many of us because we underestimate both the power of rhetoric and the extent to which conservatives willingly submit ourselves and our children to it. Anyone who is competent in the art of rhetoric knows the value of “frame,” deliberately using the unspoken assumptions that shape a…

NY AG gets a lesson in role playing

NY Attorney General issued a statement Monday, in a last ditch explanation.

“In the privacy of intimate relationships, I have engaged in role-playing and other consensual sexual activity. I have not assaulted anyone. I have never engaged in non-consensual sex, which is a line I would not cross.” — Eric Schneiderman

So the public was forced to use the safe word “resign”.
Kind of strange this role-playing thing.

Hours later he resigned.

“It’s been my great honor and privilege to serve as attorney general for the people of the State of New York. In the last several hours, serious allegations, which I strongly contest, have been made against me.

While these allegations are unrelated to my professional conduct or the operations of the office, they will effectively prevent me from leading the office’s work at this critical time. I therefore resign my office, effective at the close of business on May 8, 2018.”

The left launched attacks and conspiracies surrounding the cause of the events.

A nation turns it’s lonely eye

Of course it is editorial time and there is no shortage of material or subjects. Back in the day, was a famous song by Simon and Garfunkel, “Mrs. Robinson.” Kind of folksy. It was popular and stirred emotions of the times. Times that needed little sentiment added.

The lyrics in question referred to the baseball great, “Where have you gone, Joe DiMaggio? A nation turns its lonely eyes to you.”

That line spawned by sentiment in an era that yearned for an all-star hero talent.
Today I’d kike to adjust the words a little and borrow the phrase:

A nation turns its lonely eyes from a jaded state to that “shinning city”- longing.

When Trump came in he talked about draining the swamp. It turns out the sludge is very thick in the old bog. But there is no nostalgia to it. No popular interest on the side of preserving the swamp, even as a useful wetland. There is no love lost for this swamp.

One of the few things I keep on my wall, which I am partial to, is a painting by a friend simply titled ‘The Swamp.’ It’s an actual place, and beautiful in its natural way. These days, it is a haunting reminder of the contrasting ugly swamp in DC, and its odor.

I suppose, like they say, beauty is in the eye of the beholder, though I have a tough time thinking anyone sees any beauty in this swamp. Well, except postured Democrats and a few Republicans. It almost screams “clean me up” rather than “leave me alone.” It is an eyesore and embarrassment. If you watch the edge on some days you can almost see it holding its own, certainly not shrinking. One thing about it, we never saw the swamp this exposed before. We have known for years how long the corruption went on, but the ugliness is only now revealed to all.

Yet still we haven’t. The Swamp remains and we keep on complaining about it. Almost any week we get another reminder it does not give up its own without a fight. Swampbusting.

In that famous song were some other lyrics:

    “Sitting on a sofa on a Sunday afternoon
    Going to the candidates debate
    Laugh about it, shout about it
    When you’ve got to choose
    Every way you look at it, you lose.”

We are pretty familiar with that. Poor and bad choices abound. Surely they aren’t perfect, but often no great choices exist. Well, we are trying to change that and some people don’t want it changed. They want us to have limited choices, or options, leaving the same stanky swamp in place with the same oozing swamp gas wafting in the air.

If only we had the same concern about this environmental hazard that they have about global warming, they might be more devoted. Imagine if like earth day we had a National Drain the Swamp Day? Wishful thinking.

We could all be called on to do our part. There could be Drain the Swamp cards and emoticons. Swamp hashtags would trend and a prize would go to the person with the best idea to drain it. Time magazine would have a cover with the Bog Award of the year.

No nostalgia, just a nation turning its lonely eye to the toxic environmental problem.

One for the hopper

The daily roundup of news is at times overwhelming. But at the same time we still don’t hear the news we need to know, or want to hear.

If you are looking for that story you know is out there but can’t find, it is probably no surprise why. If you are looking for the true story on something, well, it can be almost impossible to find. Maybe you have to take snippets from 3 different pieces to cobble together the best iteration of the truth. But it is doubtful you will find it from the main talking heads on the 24/7.

Why do I say that and why does that matter? Simply because we have to think, like we always did, using critical thinking. That was always the case for us — not everyone else.

You’ve seen it before where the things media cares about are not the things the people care about. Media admits that it reports what it wants people to care about. Then they will hide behind the excuse that “this is what people want or care about.” They feed us a daily diet of what they want us to see and care about. I’ve even been told basically that by a TV reporter many years ago. It is the ultimate arrogance. They’ll even tell you to your face when they think a story is not worthy of their coverage, though probably not why.

The paraphrase of this distortion is: ‘if it is on the news, we are the reason because we demand it.’ Take the Stormy Daniels (whatever her real name is) story, we are all so curious and just want, no need, to know. If they put it on we want it.

It is also our fault, or Trump’s, when news errors.

Sure we know they are biased but I do wonder how many people know how intentional it really is? I think it has finally become clear; we got a lesson in that over the last couple years. It is about as intentional as the FBI/DOJ investigation of Trump. They, intelligence, were like Rod Blagojevich saying “I got this golden thing”. That statement alone probably did Rod the most harm. But that’s how intelligentsia played us.(or tried to) This golden thing to them begets the golden-shower story. A hodge-podge of a fictional narrative.

Served up daily, the Sludge Of Our Times is not what is on our menu but what we get. The stories we want covered are albeit ignored. Substituted with the stuff from the bottom of the swamp. And we are supposed to say, “sir, can we have more, please?

If people want to know, the MSM’s job is to make you really work to find out.

Praise and Thanks to Cecile Richards

Woman Celebrated For Killing 3.5 Million People

The Babylon Bee — May 1, 2018

U.S.—After her final day as president of abortion provider Planned Parenthood Monday, thousands of people took to social media to celebrate Cecile Richards and thank her for killing 3.5 million people during her tenure.

The nation offered kind remarks on Richards’ positive attitude, support for women’s rights, and ruthless genocidal efficiency.

The hashtag #ThankYouCecile began trending as Planned Parenthood supporters all across the country expressed their gratitude to a woman who orchestrated the wholesale destruction of millions of innocent people. Supporters stated they wanted to make sure her twelve years of service and bloodshed weren’t forgotten as she moved on to the next chapter of her life.

“Your fight for women’s rights and access to healthcare is an inspiration to all of us. Also how you took the idea of killing unborn babies from ‘safe, legal, and rare’ to ‘any time for any reason without apology and SHOUT YOUR ABORTION!’ in one decade! #ThankYouCecile” one woman in New York tweeted along with a picture of the outgoing Planned Parenthood president. “We all owe you an eternal debt of gratitude.” Other tweets and social media posts expressed similar sentiments, with thousands praising Richards’ fierceness, bravery, and cold-blooded brutality.

http://babylonbee.com/news/woman-celebrated-for-killing-3-5-million-people/

Cecile gets praised like a humanitarian. How does she top a professional record like that? That is not counting what she and PP have done to election politics.

Abortion: (just don’t call it by name)

Call it a “right”
Call it “healthcare”
Call it “choice”
Call it a “reproductive right”
Call it a “civil right”
Call it “safe”
Call it a “necessary”
Call it an “inconvenience”
Call it “fixing a problem”
Call it “responsible”
Call it “legal”

Call it anything… anything except what it is! Evil (that’s offensive) murder, genocide.

Does 60,383,268 in US since 1973 sound rare? (8.094,076 by PP) 2,009 just today.
Worldwide since 1980, nearly 1.5 billion.

Over the past month, I have learned the names and stories of all the victims.

Double standard illegal status

After watching this caravan of illegals headed for the border, It reminded me of something.

I don’t know why it is that having illegals on your doorstep should cause instant knee-jerk sympathy and compassion? That we just have to reach out to save them, as if plucking them out of a pond to rescue them from drowning? Why make them into victims?

And I don’t get why we are compelled to organize, send lawyers into the masses to give them talking points or aid their conspiracy to penetrate our borders, by hook or crook?

No, all that seems to be routine while Americans are disgusted. We were told back when Elian Gonzales was deported that he just had to go back, as much compassion as people may have about it. The rule of law was supreme, they said.

So why is it that, like the old wet foot dry foot policy, that a mere foot here automatically grants you some status, and access to our courts, and has all these benefits? As if the burden of proof is on us as to prove why they need to go back, why they cannot just stay. Of course many leftists want them all to stay — like an entitlement program.

Well, this got me thinking of a parallel to this border crisis. I have the answer, we do have laws and immigration laws. When someone touches ground at JFK from a foreign country, one does not automatically become a citizen. You aren’t granted special status and all these benefits by setting feet on ground, simply by stepping off a plane.

Those people are already documented who they are etc. They don’t get to say, “I’m here now so you cannot throw me out or send me back.” They are not teamed up with a lawyer on arrival to stake their claim of entitlement. I don’t know anyone who would accept that.

UK: 68-year-old imam accused of raping teenage girl, says she urged him to have sex with her

Jihad Watch
Apr 26, 2018 2:55 pm By Robert Spencer

Yes, of course, teenage girls are always making sexual advances upon men in their sixties with beards dyed orange (in imitation of Muhammad, the prophet of Islam). This is yet another example of how Islamic supremacists, when caught in wrongdoing, never, ever take responsibility for their actions, but always — always — blame someone else and claim victim status. No matter how ridiculous the tale that is consequently spun may be.

Imam claims he ‘didn’t rape teenager during spiritual healing,’” by Suzy Gibson, Leicester Mercury, April 26, 2018 (thanks to The Religion of Peace):

An imam, accused of twice raping a teenager during spiritual healing, told a jury she had urged him to have sex with her – but he turned her down.

Komar Uddin (68), a dad of 11 and a grandad, said the young woman became annoyed at being spurned then threatened to expose him as an illegal immigrant.

Discrimination of MAGA is alive

Read the case of a lawsuit decision about the Trump supporters rejected from the bar

Judge: bars are allowed to throw out Trump supporters

NY Post

“A Manhattan judge ruled Wednesday that there’s nothing “outrageous” about throwing the president’s supporters out of bars — because the law doesn’t protect against political discrimination.”

Read: https://nypost.com/2018/04/25/judge-bars-are-allowed-to-throw-out-trump-supporters/

Nothing outrageous, nothing to see here. Move along. Read and weep but the reasoning makes little sense. Apparently only discrimination of one’s religious belief is the only kind that is a violation.

Now had it been a gay or transgender person, maybe that would matter. On further note, seems if one cannot show others have that belief then the belief of one person is not protected. So discrimination really is okay?!

Calexit gets go-ahead to start collecting signatures

Fox News

Advocates who want California to secede from the rest of the United States were given the green light Monday to begin collecting signatures for their initiative.

California’s Secretary of State Alex Padilla announced the ballot proposal had been cleared.

The latest measure would ask voters in 2020 to decide whether to open up a secession discussion. If passed, a second election would be held a year later asking voters to affirm the decision and become an independent country.

Advocates have until mid-October to gather 365,880 signatures of registered voters to get it on the ballot.

Marcus Ruiz Evans and Louis J. Marinelli, co-founders of the group Yes California, said the second vote would show that Californians are serious about secession and would strengthen the case for foreign governments to recognize the state’s independence.

Dysfunctional Resistance is New Normal

Let me try to explain the current family tree of politics. The left’s hallucination now is Mitch McConnell as the divider and culprit of the chaotic, abnormal state we are in.

Yeah, right. Try as they will. It would take a whole lot of wrongjuice to believe or accept that as fact. So here we go, allow me to paraphrase it as colorful as I can:

Abby and Normal eloped in Obama’s first term. Harry Reid officiated the wedding. That is the place where right became wrong and wrong became right, up became down and down became up. Unconstitutional became the rule of law. Dissent became a crime. We became a country governed by a man and political party, instead of the rule of law.

Abby and Norm are still on an extended honeymoon. No hope for annulment and it doesn’t look like a divorce will come anytime soon. Theirs is one marriage I wish would not last. And they seem to have enough distant relatives to make a lot of mischief.

It turns out, all it takes is a radical minority of hell bent miscreants to ruin functionality of the system. They have now perfected it. From the Justice of Peace to justice of chaos.

So even people on the left ask, “when will normal process be coming back?” They ask us? The culprits who encouraged Abby and Norm to hook up now blame their marriage on anyone else. But they cannot deny Abby and Norm are hitched. That fact doesn’t bother them. They incite all the effects and do everything possible to keep them happily together. Nothing is off limits for the Abnormals. The trick is to make everything normal’s fault.
