Masterpiece in Action

Sometimes there are things that move faster than you can follow yet have a beautiful rythym about them And it builds drawing you in. It is rarer to experience it but you know it when you feel it.

It is hard to imagine that very sense happening in politics like a good rock masterpiece. Hard to imagine maybe but Trump has broken all the rules and norms.

Boring politics out. Masterful ‘Action Jackson’ displays are in. No one else but Trump seems capable of delivering these performances that keep you engaged till the end. It seems to be a natural talent for him.

Others just can’t duplicate all that energy or wit. When they told us over and over again how great Obama speeches were, most of us on the right yawned. They were so detached from reality you could hardly understand the platitudes he was talking about much less follow his defective reasoning. Deception and obfuscation were the keys.

You had to sit down and dissect them into their flawed pros to realize how bad they were. By that time, his media allies had already issued a verdict to declare how on tone they were. To put out any commentary one had an uphill battle against the backdrop of media and Obama’s lieutenants who saturated the air after to tell us how historic they were.

I was just listening to the ELP song Fanfare for the Common Man again and I’d compare what Carl Palmer could do on drums, and percussion, with what Trump delivers at his rallies. He takes you on a journey. It’s a one man show at rallies. If I could think of one theme to describe Trump’s tour de rallies I would say that Fanfare intro is it.

How about some masterclass?

Library holds Drag Queen event for toddlers

So how do you feel about story time for 3 yr olds by drag queens at the library?

Someone busted the outrage meter.

Ref: https://www.tfpstudentaction.org/blog/texans-protest-drag-queen-storytime

Let me get this straight: Harvard doesn’t want Kavanaugh teaching there; but drag queens teaching toddlers is A-O-kay?

A Word From Alternate Reality

In an alternate reality, there is room for this story.

It is so ridiculously Orwellian. Why the whole thing seems like a mindless projection.

So the tagline for this fiction is that somehow Democrats are not “ruthless” enough. Therefore, they lack something of a serious radical strategy. Can you imagine?

People that continually engage in behavior that threatens to shut down the very government they love to control, are not ruthless enough.

Politico has the scoop. (consensus according to the leftbots)

“They [Republicans] are more ruthless,” said Jennifer Palmieri, who over a quarter-century has served as a top aide to Bill Clinton, Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama. “And I don’t want to be like them. … The answer can’t be for Democrats to be just as cynical.”

Finally, it did admit that: “Whatever factors fueled Kavanaugh’s victory, it was hardly that Democrats were too nice to attack him personally.” — Surely not the problem!

But never mind all that. It contends Republicans just stick together better.

Begala said part of the explanation for this divide lies in Democratic psychology, citing Bill Clinton’s saying that, “Democrats want to fall in love; Republicans want to fall in line.”

https://www.politico.com/magazine/story/2018/10/07/kavanaugh-confirmation-democrats-anger-221089

Really? Anyone buy that blather? Then they launch into the popular vote in presidential elections should be the gold standard mantra. Where do they think we are, Disney Land?

I’m not going to blame Politico because it is the message Dems desperately want to send. But it is nonsensical how anyone could take it seriously…..i.e. the Alinsky-ite Dems just aren’t tough enough. The radical party of Lockstep Is Us, whatever the issue.

And the second part that Repubs are the stronger with staying in line and fighting. Beam me up. Projection. Well, until now Republicans hadn’t even shown a unified spine. Democrats have institutionalized the word fight into every campaign and message.

I now return you to the gravitational planet, where physics still applies anyway.

The Stocking was hung, with a new spine intact

…in hopes that the GOP could make good use of it.

The formerly spineless Republican Party rebounds

By Bobby Eberle – – Monday, October 8, 2018 | Washington Times

ANALYSIS/OPINION:
If there is one word — one defining, all-encompassing word — that has summed up the state of the Republican Party for years (if not decades), it’s “spineless.” Whether the issue has been illegal immigration, the budget, standing up to Planned Parenthood, or even the wildly unpopular and disastrous Obamacare, Republican “leaders” have tucked their collective tails between their legs rather than stand up and fight. But something remarkable seems to be in the air, and there’s no doubt that the change in resolve has been brought about by Donald J. Trump.

Remember all the rhetoric concerning Obamacare? Analysts said it would fail. Obama officials even admitted they lied about terms. No, you can’t keep your own doctor. No, you can’t keep your own plan. No, prices will not be lower. Republican legislators said they would repeal it. They voted to repeal it. Oh, but wait. Barack Obama was still president, and the Republican votes were simply a side show next to Mr. Obama’s veto. When Donald Trump first came on the scene, he said he would sign legislation repealing Obamacare, but the GOP couldn’t get it done. They showed their complete lack of fortitude and rolled over.

That’s just one example of many, many other issues. …/

Times…they are a changing.

Lesson to Republicans now seems to be:

You see how you are treated when Republicans do fight back. So tell me again why you would ever want to appease and capitulate to these dishonest radicals?

Any questions?

Little Miss Profit

Update: “selfless…courage” is now valued at over $800,000 dollars.

Follow the money. Remember all the myths about Christine Blasey Ford being courageous and selfless for coming forward? And “she has absolutely nothing to gain by doing this”?

Those ain’t banana peels and it is still going. Right, her main GoFundme said last week that they were officially turning off that Christine Blasey Ford campaign — recommending people also look for other progressive causes to donate to.

But on second thought, now they have recalculated and discovered that no, in fact, it was not enough. So it is back on. The statement reads:

“The costs for security, housing, transportation and other related expenses are much higher than we anticipated and they do not show signs of letting up. Funds received via this account will be used to help us pay for these mounting expenses.”[emphasis mine]

But, you know, they will let you know when/if they do reach that level of enough. Courage is now valued in the high six figures.

Too bad the people can’t send her a bill… just for all the expenses incurred.

Customer Appreciation: people helping people

This is sort of a customer appreciation piece. But not that type business to consumer. More like consumer to consumer. Everyone is a consumer at some point.

There is an incredible resource out there. It is not armed with gadgetry or 800 numbers, or high tech customer service centers — though many companies may have them.

No, I’m talking about the power in consumers, a knowledge base as a source for information. Face it, these days it is all about information. And with do it yourselfers it is no different. They need information too.

So the thing works like this: something breaks or you run into a problem and where is the first place everyone goes? That’s right, it all starts with a search on-line. Some people have gotten really good at it by putting the problem they are having into the search, or some people just put the product or thing in the search, and away they go on a mini-adventure. Sometimes it takes minutes, sometimes hours of research on a problem device or product.

But the great thing is there is a small army out there of people who help other people. It sort of restores your belief that there are good people out there who care and who aren’t taking advantage of people And it proves there are still plenty of honest people. The thing is these people often don’t have any ulterior interest other than helping other people solve or avoid a problem. All one has to do is access it, stumble on it or find it.

It is a resource within the resource of the internet. No the internet itself cannot answer all your questions, but people can and do all the time. For instance, product reviews are a helpful place for particular products. There is also an increasingly mountain of information besides that out there. All you have to do is find it, tap into it and read.

Okay, am I over glorifying the whole thing? I don’t think so. I only know what I have come across. So the real information is often not on store or manufacturer’s pages but from people out there like users and consumers. They more often than not have also been through a similar experience as yours and feel compelled to help you shorten an unpleasant experience, turning their bad into your good.

Funny how all the credit seems to be given to the wild, endless internet when in reality it is often the people behind or on the internet that make the difference. No, the internet cannot solve problems all by itself. That ability relies on people putting information on it. The internet is only as good as what is put on it.

For instance, you want to do an ancestor search. There are no guarantees the information you want is on the internet or available. It all depends (or mostly) on what other people such as professionals and users have decided to put on the internet. So the function and utility of the internet depends on people to make it useful.

I used to mock people when Twitter first started. They would put the most mundane stuff out there about what they were doing or where they were going. I said who are these people and who are they talking to? Almost like they were creating a diary on line.

I thought what a strange concept in culture. People wanted to publicize everything for whatever reasons those were, and some of those could require psychological analysis. Things settled down the more it was used. Emphasis shifted to the tool it can be, rather than simply a digital public diary.

Like every new technology, Twitter evolved into an entity of its own. Businesses use it, people use it and political activists and politicians use it. But when Donald Trump used it, “Holy cow, Houston we have a problem!!!”

They said, “whoa, maybe this is too much, how about we back off on Twitter? He needs to put the Twitter down.” It was only too much when Trump used it to his advantage. But Obama used My Space and Facebook. It turns out to be a highly personal thing; it’s how you use it that matters. You want some sense of consensus on something, look on Twitter.

Elementary my dear Watson.

It is not so different in all other areas of the internet. It is not about the apps though they are helpful. It is also about the people out there using the internet, and they will find lots of creative ways to use it because, after all, that is what we do. So the people are the engine of innovation. It is not just happening in tech laboratories.

Remember how Microsoft used to just dump its operating systems out there, every so often? Then let all the bugs and issues be found and put out patches and updates. Maybe that was not their intention but what happened. Imagine if you put a car out like that or a washing machine? “We will fix the issues and problems later as we find them.” They took advantage of the massive public rollout and their vast number of users out there.

Then when Microsoft decides to render something obsolete, they stop updating anything and say they no longer are supporting this system. Well, but you made it. They tell you we cannot possibly keep updating every old system. Enter the masses of consumers that through networking and other routes find fixes or work arounds for issues. Oh, those under appreciated consumers.

Those are some examples of the internet. There are plenty in other areas, almost in every category there are users and consumers who go the extra step. Someone does something because it needs to be done. Necessity is the mother of invention.

The same holds among DIYers. People do and then share that information. If one person was helped by it then technically it is a success and worth the effort someone made. And it is not really all about likes or views. From appliance repairs to Youtube help videos.

You are not alone either at home or online. There is information to be had sometimes a click away. All done because people care. Hats off to the underappreciated consumers.

Christine Ford’s Morning After Pill

As of post morning after the hearing, Christine Blasey Ford has raised $473,622 on her personal page. There was $210,000 raised as initial security related funds for her family.(more later if needed)

You know, at the hearing she said she doesn’t know anything about how to manage a Go Fund me or how to access those funds.

Yet I heard Democrat after Democrat, like Crhis Coons, saying but she has ‘absolutely’ nothing to gain from doing this. What about the $684,000 just so far?

She can buy a lot of front doors with that. And it continues.

So if that is really the case, then why don’t they ask her to pledge not to accept any monetary gains from this whole thing? Will she pledge that? It should be very simple.

This is one heck of a morning after pill.

While pretty much ruining the life of Judge Kavanaugh, it seems to me Dr. Blasey Ford has only upside. Where is the permanent damage to Christine Blasey Ford?

But when is enough enough?

Here was the last update on her Go Fund Me page. First it mentions other Go Fund projects to also consider contributing to, then states:

PLEASE consider donations to these fabulous organizations rather than this campaign, although we will keep the campaign open if you really want to donate to the Ford family.

They’ll keep it open for people just in case they “really want to donate to the Ford family.” They need the front doors, lots of them. “We’ll leave the light on for you.”

Avenutti King for the Day

So it is almost official, creepy porn lawyer really wants to run for president to be Democrats’ designated “fighter”. He’s already visited Iowa to listen to the grievance list.

Business Insider

“I think the party has yearned for a fighter — a fighter for good, if you will — for a significant period of time,” Avenatti said.

“And for many, I’m probably seen as that individual.”

Well, the only problem with that is he will have to fight off the dozens of other Democrat “fighters” Democrats all claim to be. Like Cory Booker with his imaginary drug dealer friend, T-Bone that just had his Spartacus moment. The guy in the pocket of big pharma.

Like Elizabeth Warren, who told us “you didn’t build that” the big government built it for you. Like Joe Biden who called us all Dreggs and said we are going to put black people back in chains, as a couple of his favorites. The anti-Me Too guy who freely gropes women and young girls publicly because he thinks they like it. Both designated Democrat “fighters.”

Or like Bernie Sanders, the king of socialism. Compete with that ‘fighter Avenutti.’ If you can’t promise people free stuff, how can people vote for you? Because you fight for them? Ha, all that Fighting is really for their free shit. Try an original line like “Two Americas.”

Like wannabe president, wing man Eric Holder who has a record of radicalism, contempt and fighting public interest behind him.

Does this mean Michael Avenutti is getting out of the Creepy Porn Lawyer business?

Proper Apathy: a case for it

Inevitably in every recent election, one word always seems to pop up usually close to the election. That word is apathy. There is almost an obsession.

Always mentioned as a negative and normally connotes a warning about bout being complacent. Not caring or not caring enough to vote, along with not caring who to vote for. It sets off a red flare about priorities. It is meant to shame and even inflame citizens.

So let’s take a look at the definition. According to Merriam-Webster:

1 : lack of feeling or emotion : impassiveness drug abuse leading to apathy and depression

2 : lack of interest or concern : indifference
i.e. political apathy

First if all, I empathize with the passion or appropriateness of using the word. But again, it is always considered a negative. Is there a positive use for it? Maybe there should be.

For a change, I wondered about using some of that righteous apathy toward our allies and European friends. What could be wrong with that? Now just hold on there, lilly liberals.

So take the textbook definition of apathy (#2) and apply a good healthy dose of it toward them, basically the whole lot, allies included. Lack of interest or concern, indifference to them. But wait, isn’t that treatment what we already receive from them and have for a long time? I mean they do treat us that way. When was the last time they made domestic or foreign policy based on what we Americans or the US thinks, or will think of it?

Get it? It seems to work fine for them.

I see a good apathy, liberally applied. Why should it always be a negative? Why not put it to good use? It is not like we get something different than that from them. If people have practiced their apathy, then why not sharpen it a little to where it is appropriate?

I can hear the liberals screaming on both sides of the Atlantic now. Except can they give a valid reason why not? I don’t think they can. Yes, I know all the standard talking points about allies and treatment of how we want to be treated. And all that gimmichery about what’s in our interest is what is in their interest too. Sure we have common desires. But this is only a one-sided thing, you do realize. Each of those countries gives us no consideration on what actions they take. They look out for themselves.

Yes, we share some values and technology and security issues. But where is the reciprocation, as Trump calls it, from them? We’ve certainly been doing this for a long time now. When was the last time they took our advice? Oh, right, we restrain our advice. Though they freely give us unsolicited advice, don’t they?

Here’s one illustration: CNN regularly has pundits, academics or intellectuals, commenting and lobbying our policies and politics from Birmingham (UK), London and Belgium. They are some of the biggest critics of Trump and the administration. But we have enough of those critics right here. Do we tell them what they should do at home? We don’t need their pontifications. What should we care what they think, let alone provide a platform for it.

Sure we just want to show them we care. Again, what does that matter when it comes down to it? What do we get in return? Maybe it hasn’t been such a great idea to consider the impact on them in our every move. I mean they have leaders and governments to represent their interests, and they do. In most cases quite well.

Why are we always thinking about sensitivities of others? It baffles me. Was this in the founding of America? No, we had our hands full thinking for ourselves about ourselves, looking after our interests because no one else on earth will. Do we now think all these countries look out for our interests? Hell no. They expect us to do that ourselves.

What happened to “Peace, commerce, and honest friendship with all nations-entangling alliances with none?” We’ve self entangled our dream with their selfish realities.

Washington instructed in his Farewell Address:

” In the execution of such a plan, nothing is more essential than that permanent, inveterate antipathies against particular nations, and passionate attachments for others, should be excluded; and that, in place of them, just and amicable feelings towards all should be cultivated. The nation which indulges towards another a habitual hatred or a habitual fondness is in some degree a slave. It is a slave to its animosity or to its affection, either of which is sufficient to lead it astray from its duty and its interest. Antipathy in one nation against another disposes each more readily to offer insult and injury, to lay hold of slight causes of umbrage, and to be haughty and intractable, when accidental or trifling occasions of dispute occur.
…/
“As avenues to foreign influence in innumerable ways, such attachments are particularly alarming to the truly enlightened and independent patriot. How many opportunities do they afford to tamper with domestic factions, to practice the arts of seduction, to mislead public opinion, to influence or awe the public councils. Such an attachment of a small or weak towards a great and powerful nation dooms the former to be the satellite of the latter.

Against the insidious wiles of foreign influence (I conjure you to believe me, fellow-citizens) the jealousy of a free people ought to be constantly awake, since history and experience prove that foreign influence is one of the most baneful foes of republican government.”
…/
“The great rule of conduct for us in regard to foreign nations is in extending our commercial relations, to have with them as little political connection as possible. So far as we have already formed engagements, let them be fulfilled with perfect good faith. Here let us stop.

Europe has a set of primary interests which to us have none; or a very remote relation. Hence she must be engaged in frequent controversies, the causes of which are essentially foreign to our concerns.”

…“Why forego the advantages of so peculiar a situation [as ours is]? Why quit our own to stand upon foreign ground? Why, by interweaving our destiny with that of any part of Europe, entangle our peace and prosperity in the toils of European ambition, rivalship, interest, humor or caprice?”

The other sweet spot factor liberals always point to is human rights. We need to influence that or this. But we don’t need to make our decisions based on our desires for them.

What I’m saying is that the reality is more stark. We have gone so far over to the international, globalist, bent over backward (and forward too) for people who generally 1) don’t appreciate it, or in some cases don’t want our help and; 2) aren’t considerate at all of us. And we don’t expect it. Shouldn’t the latter have changed if it was going to change?

What I am also saying is that it was never started out this way. Now I do hear critics of America’s every policy about a big footprint of US imperialism. I don’t agree with much of their emphasis but there is something to this one sided, lopsided, foreign policy (if that is what it is). The problem is it is not just in foreign policy but in domestic policy too, that we are influenced by their concerns.

No, I don’t buy the America is the big bully and aggressor argument. We bend over trying to make our policy based on their whims and desires, for or about us. We have to stop empowering those who never had our best interests. You know the Obama lesson on being an appeaser or slave to our enemies, empowering them and weakening ourselves.

However, we never see any signs of this consideration returned from abroad. They only have their hand out to receive not respond in kind.

This is not a case for protectionism or “isolationism”. But the affect may be protectionist.

I’m not sure what an official policy of apathy would look like or what it would do. But I dang sure know what our default doctrine has left us with. What did we get?

I wouldn’t mind being accused of it from across the globe. I might consider it a compliment. And maybe they would stop dishing out their helpful advice to us, too? Incidentally, applying some indifferent apathy to our friends and allies might also decrease the popular use of it in our election process. Apathy gets a pretty bad rap.

Whether consciously or not, we haven’t been making decisions on our own merits for our interests. They’ve been parsed down to p/c and sensitivities about what others think. Others have become proxies in our decisions. We could be a little apathetic, even rude.

Or in other words: quite frankly, my dear, I don’t give a damn!

Celeb Marriage Headed for Annulment?

No, not one of those juicy, personal stories. Celebrity endorsement of Nike and Kap off to a rocky start? They barely said their vows. Well, let’s hope they were both smart enough to get a prenup before rushing off — just in case it is not what each hoped it would be.

How about media and the Left’s wannabe darling of protest, Colin Kaepernick. This one is just the truth about the left, media and their unwillingness to acknowledge reality. The latest Kaepernick caper with Nike lit the tentacles of their radical flames. It was a love story, too powerful to break. A jilted one turned protestor gets handsomely rewarded with a contract from a major sports sponsor. Cha ching. What could be wrong with that?

Loyalty…

We now learn Colin Kaepernick is putting out his own line of shirts and Kaepernick gear that directly competes with his major merchandise contract with Nike. Great going on that agreement, Nike. The “Just do it and lose your ass” campaign.” Well, there’s a story media will have to put on its ignore list. Why?

Because the Nike marriage was such a powerful voice for perpetual protestors on the left. A romantic relationship supporting “social justice” and radicals, with a little shout to cop killing thrown in. Now a little something for himself on the side, too? Maybe it’s one of those open marriages. Since he screwed them over in short order for his own gain, proving how disloyal he is to anyone, that is something of no importance.

Come to think of it, he screwed the 49ers over too. Loyalty is so overrated.

“So what?” they will say, he is not into commitments.

Shows what the kind of Social Justice Kap supports — the screw you and love me justice league. But he seemed so committed. Say it isn’t so! Who cares?

Character only matters when Leftist media are attacking and smearing the character of someone on the right, even when they have to lie about it. They like open marriages.

Nike’s new logo — “Just Do It and Lose It.” Hey, what does the Kap do for you?

Tweet of the Day

Some things are just said better in Tweet form

You know how they are blaming Trump for Hurricane Florence and then called him complicit when it was miles from shore?

So why not give him extra credit now for the downgrade? How about it, CNN?

Thought on NYT OP-Ed

A few thoughts on the op-ed story floating around in the media.

Seems the author, by choice or not, was 1) redefining the Resistance; 2) redefining the Deep State. Also the author seemed fond of John McCain.

In both cases (1+2) into more appealing and friendly sounding terms. One can only wonder why someone would want to do that? Who benefits? I’d like to know that part.

Update, as of WH briefing: they are now polling the op-ed letter, or polling an anonymous letter for how many people agree with it. Incredible. So add one more why?

Dear Meghan McCain

“Hush, little one don’t you cry”…….as the song goes. Oh, never mind. Grudge much?

Apparently you now feel you have to pick up the battle of bitter John McCain against Trump. One comment Trump made regarding John McCain is all this whole thing is about since it is the only thing he did to McCain, your father, besides getting elected.

Meghan McCain said in eulogizing her father:

“The America of John McCain is generous and welcoming and bold. She is resourceful and confident and secure. She meets her responsibilities, She speaks quietly because she is strong. America does not boast because she has no need to. The America of John McCain has no need to be great again because America was always great.”

“We gather here to mourn the passing of American greatness. The real thing, not cheap rhetoric from men who will never come near the sacrifice he gave so willingly, nor the opportunistic appropriation of those who lived lives of comfort and privilege.”

“We live in an era where we knock down old American heroes for all their imperfections, when no leader wants to admit to fault. You were an exception, and you gave us an ideal to strive for. Look, I know you can see this gathering here in this cathedral. The nation is here to remember you.”

I understand you want to mourn your father, but why do you have to attack Trump to do it — because you think it is popular? Would you attack Obama for “change you can believe in?” Any wonder some people interpret it as a eulogy for the Republican Party?

Well, if you want to count the comments of blaming him for his vote to save Obamacare, not lost on the Democrat left, then there is that too. But McCain did vote that way, after running and promising that he would lead the charge to abolishing Obamacare. Which brings us to an interesting point in this dustup. (End first person)

Was he really promising to get rid of Obamacare, or was he promising instead just to lead the charge in the Senate? See, that matters if he was not really planning on ending Obamacare but only wanted to lead the effort. In that case, he would run and lead it which would also mean killing the effort when push came to shove. Thereby making himself mister popularity with the left, is that what he had in mind? Do you see what I mean?

And then there were all those efforts toward getting answers and information about MIA’s and POW’s Remember those, where John McCain rushed in to sort of lead the parade and then the effort ended up dying? Was he ever interested in settling the matter or just burying the efforts by leading it? Questions many of us have about McCain’s agenda.

However, this telling sign from Megyn McCain sort of unravels it. So much animus. So much bitterness. The same type of bitterness and lack of concern he seemed to have for those aggrieved family members of Vietnam Vets. Answers they don’t have, questions that remain. John was no real help for them. But those efforts died off after he got involved. Better not to know? What did he actually care about? Is criticism of McCain taboo?

Now Meghan lashes out at the funeral as if it were Trump’s fault McCain died. Blame Trump for what: starting a movement, trying to get answers; trying to change the way the Washington Swamp worked; trying to fight corruption? Blame Trump for using a slogan that even Bill Clinton used. Blame Trump for speaking up for so many Americans, who went to the polls to elect him president. So blame voters. Was that the problem, he was elected? Or was it that he was sticking up for the forgotten, working man who was disenchanted and disenfranchised?

There were plenty of people that felt their voice was not heard. In her rant attack on Trump, to cheers of applause, she was lashing out at the voters who elected him, too. Blame the masses. Don’t blame McCain for anything though he has been in office for over 35 years. Almost as a metaphor to forgotten voters: he was elected and then diagnosed not long after his election yet would not cede his seat, but instead hoarded it to his bitter end so they could not go to the polls to elect a new Senator in November.

In the beginning of May he made a statement that he may well not be around in the spring, of 2019, when the end of May was the deadline to have his seat included in the election. He could have continued his Senate career, as the people had their election campaign. (like he did) He would still have his funeral plans made the same way. He would still have the marketing of his book. And he still would not have voted in major issues for months. In fact, as we see, he would have died while that was all taking place, before the election ever came. It would have been no skin off of McCain or his legacy.

But it was skin off the voters. Did he care? No, it seems not. He had his own plans and concerns, which did not involve the people who went and voted for him yet again in 2016. Was he even honest with the voters in that election?

Now that we are in this situation, brought on by McCain, if anyone should have a problem it is the people. They were slighted. And the Governor of Arizona will have to pick a successor to McCain, as he wanted him to do. McCain wanted him to pick a McCain-type person. That is no secret. What is a McCain-type person? Likely someone from his inner circle. Forgive many of us for asking if that person will be his wife, Cindy McCain. Yes, I heard a few denials but I think it will be Cindy McCain? (I could be wrong) It gives someone the pathway into the office setting it up for the 2020 election though.

This all makes me ask and wonder, just how much power does a sitting US Senator have, even to pick his successor? Does he get to overrule the people who voted for him? Does he have a veto over the will of the people? All these questions could force you to conclude yes, he does, when it comes to McCain. Seems that his will is the only one that mattered.

I’m sorry for your grief, pain and bitterness, Meghan. Maybe one day you can let at least one of them go?

Seems the people should have more complaints than John McCain, or his family. Meghan said her father’s response to her asking what he wanted in a eulogy was: “Show them how tough you are.” So was the point to show people how tough she is? What is the purpose? Tough toward Trump, and the voters? Over what? But she did make the bitter point clear.

Wish over reality on McCain

I have now heard many, by no means all, of the pontificating and eulogizing by McCain’s many admirers. Many of them from the left.

What does it tell me as the collective raves about him roll on? Simply, for the most part, they tell me about the man they wish he was rather than about the man he really was.

But is that not always a key to leftist narratives, talking about the perspective they are selling than the reality something is? They project what they want people to think and believe. An old tired tactic of the left. Message: “Do not believe your lying eyes but what we say you see and what it means.”

So here they are in person after person talking about the traits they want us to associate with McCain rather than the reality. The bitterness and politics of opposition that exuded McCain was turned into a sweet, if poetic, soliloquy in a tribute to him. “Principle over expediency,” as he was described. {I thought it was McConnell)

Why must they stretch it to absurd limits?

Washington Post called McConnell, Ryan, Pence three men who were not fit to eulogize McCain. They all just so happen to be three current leaders in the Republican Party. That says something. We all may disagree with each one but not for the reasons McCain did.

Even in death, McCain chose to aim the sword rather than to bury it. All to be used as fodder to atatck Republicans, as John McCain had planned. So ends his legacy… not.

The Swamp Fights Back

Vengeance of the Swamp

Today will live in infamy, only in the liberal left’s mind. I’ve heard all the happy dances and criticism from Dems about the Michael Cohen. ‘He flipped on Trump.’

I am convinced though of one thing, it does not matter what something really is, the only thing that matters is what the left makes of it – or believes it is. And they want to talk about Trump and relative truth? These people invented moral relativity.

No, Trump did nothing wrong but soon that won’t matter. The only thing that seems to stick is what Democrats say. The creators of reality that they are.

Never underestimate or doubt the swamp’s revenge. It knows no limit and that force alone can drive the left too. Its existence is their existence and are tied at the stump.

It is all they need, a media amplifier for their tired attacks of Trump that even they seem to get tired of repeating. Someone apparently declared that the left rules the country. The tolerance-challenged left decided that their perception of politics dictates what the rest of the country shall think. “Full stop!”

They claim to stand for diversity, the more diverse the better. As long as everyone is of the same opinions as them. That’s diversity. And the monotone of their rhetoric goes on.

Now they refuse to admit or say the main issue that they are running on. What’s up with that? When did politicians not want to flout their central theme? The whole election is based on impeaching Donald Trump. But the Left and its media won’t say that. No, hush hush. It’s all so deceptive, isn’t it? Don’t let the cat out of the bag now.

Though if they win in Congress, the first priority on the agenda will be impeaching Trump. The pols know that, the Left knows that and the voters know that. Now the rest of America knows it too. But the Left won’t say that. Why? Because they think it is not popular with the people. So, of course they want to do something that is not popular with the people. And they want to tear the country apart, and tie the government in knots to do it. Just cannot say it on the campaign trail, it is not a good sound bite. Unless you are Mad Maxine Waters, at least she admits what she is about and stands for.

The Swamp is now in revenge cycle. It wants to destroy anything that threatens its formidable habitat. Not Jeff Sessions though. He appears to be no problem for it. In fact, he seems to be defending the Swamp. There are only two stands, either you are for the swamp or against it. You can’t be on the fence about that. Just like illegal immigration, you are either unapologetically for it or you are against it. Which side are you on? Dems and media prove daily which side they are on. They put on a different act. They want to hedge it by saying they are against both but aren’t. Again, the deception game is stunning.

They will not tell the people what they are really for, whether it is for government (their government) to rule your lives, decide your future, take your money to do it, or for it to be a check on and against the will of the American people.

If they don’t like the results of the election: stop it, change it, protest and resist it, Then prevent it from occurring again. “How dare people elect someone who does not represent the status quo of the swamp? How dare people object?” Leftists love them some Swamp.

Cohen denies CNN report as a mistake

Oh, oops, it was all just a mistake. And Lanny says so.

“A CNN report last month that Michael Cohen has information that President Trump was aware of the infamous Trump Tower meeting before it occurred got “mixed up” and was inaccurate, Cohen attorney Lanny Davis said Wednesday night.

“So Michael Cohen does not have information that President Trump knew about the Trump Tower meeting with the Russians beforehand or even after?” CNN’s Anderson Cooper asked Davis.”

No biggie. what happens when you get Lanny Davis eyes. Banana peel by banana peel.
Did you hear the one about Hillary colluding with Russian interests? Oh, never mind.

Crisis Central

The mainstream media is in crisis mode and have been there for 2 years. Everyday they get themselves into frenzy over Trump to try outdoing their outrage but can’t anymore. They tried everything.

I’m surprised they can manage to do the weather without a gloom and doom apocalypse. The MSM are really crisis actors, with all their liberal pundits. I think I found the right analogy to fit the situation.

All of them are up on the roof of a tall building in a tantrum rage, flailing around about how terrible it is. They go home every night but come back the next day to crawl back out on the roof in a frenzy saying “something really bad is happening.”

They are in a permanent crisis mode. They don’t think anyone should find this suspicious.
It is just like trauma but people do not normally stay in that state for long term.

Persistent Thought

Just a thought here, since not every thought gets the light of day. That’s another matter.

Stevie Nicks had a big hit decades ago with a song (whoever wrote it) “stop dragging my heart around.” It started out with “Baby, you’ll come knocking on my front door….Same old line you used to use before”.

Often when I listen to Democrats, leftists, liberals, progressives, socialists, or whatever name they want to use, and at some point I can hear an echo of that song in my head. I’m tired of them trying to drag my heart around. Does that mean I don’t care? No.

But I’m just sick of hearing the emotionalism of the day drive the discussion or substituted for persuasion, and passion for reason. Then virtue signaling it all over the place. It’s tired and transparent. So, hey libs, get another groove ‘cause it don’t bust a move.

Happy Anniversary

Congratulations to myself.

My reclusive and obscure voice on WordPress is now 7 years old, today. How time flies.

Moral of the story: Not all pebbles make a ripple in the water, it depends on the surface conditions and size of the stone. Choose wisely, grasshopper.

Well, at least WordPress is keeping track…….. of something besides cookies.
