Israel

I haven't posted anything substantial in a while because...well, because there is just too much going on.  It's like sensory overload.  Just when I hear of some absurdity that might be worth a post and ponder a reaction the world has moved on.  I'm not a guy who is glued 24/7 to social media or MSM, but I am attuned to what is going on.  But it takes me some time to gather my thoughts.  It seems that more and more lately by the time I've pondered and considered and outlined what I want to say, it's old news.  So I decided to just stand down for a bit.

But the absolutely crazy and ridiculous response from the loonies on the left and the MSM to the opening of the U.S. Embassy in Jerusalem has been beyond reasonable.  Way beyond.  First of all, every President since at least Bubba has said they were going to move the Embassy to Jerusalem.  No one had the balls to do it.  Trump said he would do and did it.  And you'd think it was the worst action in history.  From my perspective as an ordinary guy who pays attention, this was the right move and a logical move.  Somehow we've got to move the needle and this might do it.  We've been kissing the ass of the Palestinians for so long, they think they can get away with anything.  We need to show them whose side we're on.  And we did.

But here's the nutty thing.  Not one Democrat attended the opening.  Not one.  And the Jewish vote in the U.S. is largely Democratic.  Someone explain that to me.  There is no logic in Jews voting Democratic.

And the MSM is aghast at the riots and the loss of life in Gaza.  But here's the thing.  Hamas caused this.  No one else.  And guess who controls Hamas.  Yep...Iran.  Figure it out.  There weren't any riots on the Jordanian border or the West Bank.  It was all in Gaza.  Where Hamas calls the shots.  Again...figure it out.

I've said it before and I'll say it again...the MSM has still not figured out Trump.  It is beyond me that they can be so dumb.

Trump..."You Magnificent Bastard"!

A friend sent this to me and I thought it pretty good.  Very politically incorrect in this day and age, but tells some truths that are buried by most media outlets.  I've never heard of Evan Sayet, but he captures what many are saying.

Fight on, Trump - "You magnificent bastard"

With a description of politics in the US since the mid sixties.
Evan Douglas Sayet is a comedian and conservative speaker. He is the nation's leading conservative speaker, an in-demand Master of Ceremony for Republican events. Sayet is the author of The Kinder Garden Of Eden: How The Modern Liberal Thinks And Why He's Convinced That Ignorance Is Bliss.
HE FIGHTS....
by Evan Sayet

My Leftist friends (as well as many ardent #Never Trumpers) constantly ask me if I'm not bothered by Donald Trump's lack of decorum.

They ask if I don't think his tweets are "beneath the dignity of the office." Here's my answer:
We Right-thinking people have tried dignity. There could not have been a man of more quiet dignity than George W. Bush as he suffered the outrageous lies and politically motivated hatreds that undermined his presidency.
We tried statesmanship.Could there be another human being on this earth who so desperately prized "collegiality" as John McCain?
We tried propriety.  Has there been a nicer human being ever than Mitt Romney? And the results were always the same.

This is because, while we were playing by the rules of dignity, collegiality and propriety, the Left has been, for the past 60 years, engaged in a knife fight where the only rules are those of Saul Alinsky and the Chicago mob.

I don't find anything "dignified," "collegial" or "proper" about Barack Obama's lying about what went down on the streets of Ferguson in order to ramp up racial hatreds simply because racial hatreds serve the Democratic Party.

I don't see anything "dignified" in lying about the deaths of four Americans in Benghazi and imprisoning an innocent filmmaker to cover your tracks. I don't see anything "statesman-like" in weaponizing the IRS to be used to destroy your political opponents and any dissent. Yes, Obama was "articulate" and "polished" but in no way was he in the least bit "dignified," "collegial" or "proper."

The Left has been engaged in a war against America since the rise of the Children of the '60s. To them, it has been an all-out war where nothing is held sacred and nothing is seen as beyond the pale. It has been a war they've fought with violence, the threat of violence, demagoguery and lies from day one of the violent take-over of the universities till today.

The problem is that, through these years, the Left has been the only side fighting this war. While the Left has been taking a knife to anyone who stands in their way, the Right has continued to act with dignity, collegiality and propriety. With Donald Trump, this all has come to an end. Donald Trump is America 's first wartime president in the Culture War.

During wartime, things like "dignity" and "collegiality" simply aren't the most essential qualities one looks for in warriors. Ulysses Grant was a drunk whose behavior in peacetime might well have seen him drummed out of the Army for conduct unbecoming.

Had Abraham Lincoln applied the peacetime rules of propriety and booted Grant, the Democrats might well still be holding their slaves today. Â  Lincoln rightly recognized that, "I cannot spare this man. He fights..."

General George Patton was a vulgar-talking son-of-a-bitch. In peacetime, this might have seen him stripped of rank. But, had Franklin Roosevelt applied the normal rules of decorum then, Hitler and the Socialists would be five decades into their thousand-year Reich.

Trump is fighting. And what's particularly delicious is that, like Patton standing over the battlefield as his tanks obliterated Rommel's, he's shouting, "You magnificent bastard, I read your book!" That is just the icing on the cake, but it's wonderful to see that not only is Trump fighting, he's defeating the Left using their own tactics.
That book is Saul Alinsky's Rules for Radicals, a book so essential to the Liberals' war against America that it is
and was the playbook for the entire Obama administration and the subject of Hillary Clinton’s senior thesis.

It is a book of such pure evil, just as the rest of us would dedicate our book to those we most love or those to whom we are most indebted.

Trump's tweets may seem rash and unconsidered but, in reality, he is doing exactly what Alinsky suggested his followers do. First, instead of going after "the fake media" (and they are so fake that they have literally gotten every single significant story of the past 60 years not just wrong, but diametrically opposed to the truth, from the Tet Offensive to Benghazi, to what really happened on the streets of Ferguson, Missouri) Trump isolated CNN. He made it personal.

Then, just as Alinsky suggests, he employs ridicule which Alinsky described as "the most powerful weapon of all." ... Most importantly, Trump's tweets have put CNN in an untenable and unwinnable position. ... They need to respond. This leaves them with only
two choices. They can either "go high" (as Hillary would disingenuously declare of herself and the fake news would disingenuously report as the truth) and begin to honestly and accurately report the news or they can double-down on their usual tactics and hope to defeat Trump with twice their usual hysteria and demagoguery. The problem for CNN (et al.) with the former is that if they were to start honestly reporting the news, that would be the end of the Democratic Party they serve.

It is nothing but the incessant use of fake news (read: propaganda) that keeps the Left alive.. Imagine, for example, if CNN had honestly and accurately reported then-candidate Barack Obama's close ties to foreign terrorists (Rashid Khalidi), domestic terrorists
(William Ayers), the mafia (Tony Rezko) or the true evils of his spiritual mentor, Jeremiah Wright's church. Imagine if they had honestly and accurately conveyed the evils of the Obama administration's weaponizing of the IRS to be used against their political opponents or his running of guns to the Mexican cartels or the truth about the murder of Ambassador Christopher Stevens and the Obama administration's cover-up.

So, to my friends on the Left and the #Never Trumpers as well, do I wish we lived in a time when our president could be "collegial" and "dignified" and "proper"? Of course I do. These aren't those times. This is war. And it's a war that the Left has been fighting without opposition for the past 60 years.

So, say anything you want about this president - I get it - he can be vulgar, he can be crude, he can be undignified at times.
I don't care. I can't spare this warrior. He fights for America!  Fight on you magnificent bastard!

Stormy Waters

You know the old saying about 60 Minutes.  "You know you're going to have a bad day when you open the door and Mike Wallace is standing there and says, 'Hello, I'm from 60 Minutes and I've got a few question'."

I watched the 60 Minutes story tonight about Stormy Daniels.  It was pretty smarmy.  She seems okay but she's obviously been in a pretty sleazy business for 20 years.  Her lawyer is definitely a world class asshole fo the first order. Which is the kind of guy you'd want if you're going after Trump.

I came away with a few impressions.  First, there is no proof of anything.  She made some offhand implications of photos or texts or something else.  But right now it's a he said, she said.  Second, it was 12 years ago.  12 years.  It has nothing to do with today.  Third, if it's true the worst thing was that Melania had just given birth.  That's pretty cold.  But I have to admit not utterly surprising given what we know of Trump.  Fourth, she has a motive.  She kept saying she didn't, but she does.  That motive is obviously money.  We'll see how much she makes from this, but I hope it goes the other way.  Fifth, there was some implication that the lawyer who did all the arranging of the hush money could be in trouble.  I'm not buying that.  And finally, she should be careful.  There are a lot of crazy folks out there who might go after her.  The story isn't over.
