When a Spy is A Spy and a Lie is a Lie

How stupid does the Deep State think we are?  Apparently as stupid as their supporters and all the never-Trumpers.

Riddle: when is a spy not a spy?  When the FBI claims they are an “informant.”

Or what about this comedy clue?  How about an investigation/setup well into its second year that is looking for collusion between a presidential campaign and Russia where the only person in that campaign allegedly not under investigation is the candidate (now president) himself.

One more believe-it-or-not example.  What’s the first thing the FBI would normally do when informed that a political party’s email servers were hacked?  Do a forensic inspection of the compromised server?  Wrong.

The correct answer is to sit like a trained poodle while a private third party hired by the Democrats “analyzes” the data before pointing their finger at the foreign power accused of colluding with the Deep State’s political opponent.

All without any shared empirical evidence and based on “primary attribution analysis” the private company that did the forensics admits is “shoddy.”

Even better, the hacked party crying foul refuses to allow the pre-eminent law enforcement agency in the world, the FBI, access to their server – even two years after the purported hack!

And what does the FBI do when denied access to the “hacked” server?  Revisiting our poodle analogy, they bark up the wrong tree by investigating the opposing candidate of the “hacked” party rather than do forensics on the hardware that would prove the actual culprit.

So let’s recap: $17 million taxpayer dollars have been spent looking everywhere – everywhere except on the computer hardware where the alleged crime was committed.  If it was committed.  We really don’t know since the Democrats won’t let anyone look at their servers.

Without a crime being named and absolutely no evidence, a Special Counsel was appointed based on an illegal leak by terminated FBI director James Comey.  Comey was angered at being fired by a president he loathes and who beat the candidate the Deep State supported – not to mention that his wife and daughters wanted to win!

Comey used opposition research that he knew was provided by Hillary Clinton then lied with others before a FISA court about knowing its source.

The oppo research material consisted of illegal domestic spying (informanting?), and a dossier, which itself was based on information gathered by a British intelligence officer using Russian Kremlin officials as sources.

This would be the same Russia that Trump was accused of colluding with to steal the 2016 presidential election.

Sound like a convoluted political novel by former Obama Administration speechwriter and Deputy National Security Advisor Ben Rhodes?

If the coup to destroy Trump’s candidacy and presidency plays out like the other accomplishments of the hapless Obama Administration, very soon their nefarious plot will boomerang and kaboom! on all those involved.

California May Adopt Commie Holiday

Hawaii has live volcanoes, but it’s the California State Assembly that keeps spewing molten ashes of communism into the political environment with the hope that it will solidify into accepted practice by the masses.

Russia May Day Parade

Earlier this month the California Assembly discussed a bill that would consolidate Abraham Lincoln and George Washington’s February birthdays into a singularly-observed  Presidents’ Day.

That’s nothing too radical other than where to put the apostrophe (Presidents’ Day or President’s Day), or whether to include an apostrophe at all.

What made California Bill AB-3042 controversial was Democrat Assemblyman Miguel Santiago’s desire to make the communist-inspired International Workers’ Day a state-sponsored holiday.

International Workers’ Day is May 1 and is also known as May Day. It has been celebrated for decades in  communist countries and drew more than 100,000 Muscovites at this year’s May Day parade in Moscow.

One wonders if the communist holiday is celebrated by taking stuff from society’s producers and giving it to the non-producers.

If so, it would be like Christmas gift giving in reverse. Gifts would be taken rather than received. This may explain why Santiago insists it should be a paid holiday (unlike Presidents’ Day), and why anti-capitalist California is considering the bill.

The appropriations and education committees earlier passed the bill along party line votes but the California Assembly refused to pass it by a 27-22 committee vote last Thursday. Hope springs eternal for Santiago however, after he submitted a motion to reconsider Bill AB-3042 another time.

California Republican Assemblyman Matthew Harper pretty well summed up the feelings of the minority last Thursday:

“Are we in competition to be the laughing stock of the United States?” he asked on the floor of the State House.  “Are we going that far to the left?”

He went on to say that the Santiago bill makes it look like California is kowtowing to Cold War Soviet domination.

This begs two questions: first, if California added the communist-inspired May Day as a paid holiday, would that be evidence of the long sought Russian collusion Special Counsel Robert Mueller has been seeking the past year?

Second, if Santiago’s bill passes, would California be charged with misappropriating Russian culture?

The Eagles’ song Hotel California seemingly sums up the fate of state residents stuck with their current progressive representation: “We are all just prisoners here, of our own device.”

CNN’s Don Lemon is One Sour Puss

It’s a shame state lemon laws don’t apply to CNN’s Don Lemon. Based on his acerbic commentary and dour outlook on all things Trump, viewers of his show should be entitled to some kind of relief.

Lemon is the co-anchor of CNN Tonight but sees his role as a political commentator who has a higher opinion of his own opinions than is justified. He projects himself as a serious journalist and that in itself says a lot about his myopia, the current state of broadcast journalism and the Trump haters that watch his show.

In his mind, Don Lemon is the story.

Last Friday Lemon expressed enough sour grapes he might earn his own Sour Nerds flavor.

“If you have the evidence that shows you, that leads you to nothing else but this president being racist, then I feel it’s my obligation as a journalist to say it,” he said last week as the keynote speaker at Variety’s Entertainment & Technology Summit in New York.

That’s funny, because in my journalism classes we were taught our role was to report the facts as objectively as possible so readers could form their own opinions. That was the journalist’s obligation then.

Guess I missed the classes where journalists were to form their own conclusion, rearrange the facts to support that conclusion, and then tell readers and viewers what to think about a story by sharing your personal opinion.

Lemon gets his ear pierced on national TV. Now that’s news!

“Critical thinking is important as a journalist. If you cannot surmise that this president — if he’s not racist, he’s certainly racist-adjacent,” Lemon told last week’s gathered audience.

Racist-adjacent? What the heck is that?

Is that like racist by association because you live in adjacent houses? Is it a type of homeowners association where all the houses are painted black and white? Was he talking about George and Louise Jefferson living next to Archie Bunker?

I asked my Google assistant what “racist-adjacent” was and she shrugged and sent me a link to the Southern Poverty Law Center.

“We have come to a consensus in our society that facts matter. I feel like it’s my obligation to say that,” Lemon said last week.

Don Lemon wouldn’t know an honest fact if it signed his paycheck and made his coffee.  His anti-Trump bias and presuppositions of Trump’s unfitness to be president are there for his TV zombies to see night in and night out.

As far as his obligation, apparently Lemon feels no obligation to honestly report Trump’s economic policies which have led to the lowest level of black unemployment ever. Likewise the undeniable fact there are fewer blacks on food stamps now than at anytime during Barack Obama’s presidency.

Where is Lemon’s obligation to his viewers with honest facts that tell the real story about the Russian collusion nonsense, Trump’s foreign policy successes and the positive things this president has accomplished his first 16 months in office – despite the scurrilous media headwinds by journalist hacks like Don Lemon and his ilk?

Unfortunately you’ll never hear any of those things from “This is CNN” and their primetime anchor, Don “Racist-Adjacent” Lemon.

2018 – The Year of the Wicked Wolf

The year 2018 must be the Year of the Wolf. Or Wolff. Or Woof.

In January Michael Wolff, author of The Fire and the Fury, published his gossip-filled book full of known lies, unchecked facts, half-truths, and imaginary occurrences the author believed to be true.

Those imaginary occurrences had to be good enough for his readers since not a single Cabinet level official was interviewed for his “guess-all” book.

Since learning that Wolff used a pink unicorn and Nessie of Loch Ness as two of his sources, the public last saw him on a local cable channel yelling at a potted plant, “I’m in print! Things are going to start happening to me now” like Navan A. Johnson in The Jerk.

Speaking of offense, this past Saturday comedienne Michelle Wolf did an impression of a stand-up routine at the annual White House Correspondents’ Assocication dinner.

People who enjoy pulling the wings off butterflies and burning ants with magnifying glasses thought it hilarious.

Wolf was crude, rude and came off like a high school mean girl on Facebook. During her “act” she labeled White House spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders a liar and an Uncle Tom – so called because that’s the name “for white women who disappoint other white women.”

She attacked Counselor to the President Kellyanne Conway as a liar and hypocrite:  “You guys have got to stop putting Kellyanne on your shows. All she does is lie. If you don’t give her a platform, she has nowhere to lie.”

Wolf’s act was so below the belt, over-the-top, and a punch to the midriff of decorum and decency that even liberal female journalists who defended Bill Clinton’s debauchery were aghast.

 

 

What’s funny is that liberals are so infected with Trump Derangement Syndrome (TDS), they can’t distinguish between funny and ferocious, humor and haranguing, comedy and cruelty.

The Left is so politically correct they are afraid of offending any life form, but they have no problem lambasting any Christian, conservative or rap artist who think differently than they do.

Before political correctness and its twin mongrels of diversity and inclusivity were spawned, celebratory dinners with funny guest speakers worked like this:

If Michelle Wolf would study these old celebrity roasts, she might learn how to be funny – without being a #NastyWoman.

Masculinity As A Mental Health Issue

“Man up.” “Act like a man.” “Real men don’t cry.”

The University of Texas at Austin claims these are examples of “restrictive masculinity,” and it is the latest college campus to shine the liberal light of wussiness on the theory that masculinity could be a mental health issue.

Traits like assertiveness, taking charge and being a “breadwinner” are discouraged because they restrict men to harmful stereotypes.  Unlike cry closets and safe spaces for college-aged men.

Promoting such attitudes can lead to unhealthy activities like violence, drinking or punching the lights out of a cis-gendered individual that has a problem with your heterosexuality.

The MasculinUT class is being offered through the University of Texas at Austin’s Counseling and Mental Health Center.  (Apparently including the “e” in masculine is patriarchal.)  Patriarchal types dismiss the new program as a virus on virility and a form of Longhorn mad cow disease.

It’s actually a sign of our times that the program is being offered through the university’s counseling and mental health center.  According to the program’s founders, masculine gender identities include female, transgender, genderqueer and non-binary students. Huh?

Cross dressing and assuming the opposite gender role of the factory installed equipment you were born with used to be considered a mental illness that required professional counseling, not a celebration.

Today, many enlightened gender bender advocates insist that the concept of gender is optional and can be changed at anytime – despite any lack of scientific evidence validating that premise. (Watching the Sisters number in White Christmas 150 times doesn’t count.)

On the other hand, masculine qualities like poise, bravery and resoluteness have been historically respected, but now they are rejected as discriminatory and biased. Guess you could call such qualities a “manstrosity.”

Manly attributes formally revered are now considered “restrictive” and are believed to lead to sexual violence and interpersonal issues, therefore masculinity must be counseled and treated as a form of mental illness. Like believing in prayer or wearing a MAGA hat.

What’s happening on college campuses today is enough to make a real man cry.  Or not.

Jarrar is Liberal Tolerance Personified

Why do conservatives diss liberal feel good concepts like diversity and inclusion? Look no further than California college professor Randa Jarrar.

Jarrar is the Fresno State English professor that suddenly took a leave of absence on Wednesday after vilifying former First Lady Barbara Bush on Twitter – within an hour of her passing.

That doesn’t seem very inclusive.

Just one of many open-minded, tolerant members of academia, Jarrar tweeted this about Mrs. Bush’s death: “Barbara Bush was a generous and smart and amazing racist who, along with her husband, raised a war criminal. F**k outta here with your nice words.”

A professor of creative writing, Jarrar flexed her writing chops with a second tweet: “PSA: either you are against these pieces of s— and their genocidal ways or you’re part of the problem. That’s actually how simple this is. I’m happy the witch is dead. can’t wait for the rest of her family to fall to their demise the way 1.5 million iraqis have. byyyeeeeeee.”

What a sweetheart, huh? Hard to believe she’s still single.

She also tweeted: “All the hate I’m getting ALMOST made me forget how happy I am that George W. Bush is probably really sad right now.”

Before switching her Twitter account to private after the ensuing social media tsunami, she justified her hateful messages by claiming that now others would know “what it’s like to be an Arab American Muslim American woman with some clout online expressing an opinion.”

Seems like she’s mistaking “girth” for “clout” – but I digress.

Jarrar, whose name sounds like the Star Wars villain Jabba the Hut, was born in Chicago to Egyptian and Palestinian parents but grew up in Kuwait and Egypt in a strict Muslim household.

“The United States has afforded her and her family everything. I don’t understand where this hatred comes from,” said ex-husband Orie Cipollaro.

Here’s a clue: Cipollaro, who married his poison pen dream boat when she was age 18, remembers his wife calling herself the smartest person in the room.

Bet he kicks himself every day for letting her get away after just two years of marital bliss.

Jarrar further tweaked her Twitter critics by listing a mental health crisis hotline as her personal number, causing concerns that her thoughtless prank could clog the hotline.

She also taunted her online critics when they called for her ouster: “I work as a tenured professor. I make 100K a year doing that. I will never be fired. I will always have people wanting to hear what I have to say.”

Based on media reports, here’s hoping her heartless comments will soon be nothing more than a distant memory that she’ll blame on American intolerance and racism – if there’s still anyone wanting to hear what she has to say.

The Bias of Today’s “Political Experts”

To say that Republican presidents historically poll poorly with “political experts” is no surprise considering such wunderkinds think that “leading from behind” was a serious foreign policy and “Cash for Clunkers” helped save the U.S. auto industry and Planet Earth.

Last week during Presidents’ Day week the “Never Put America First” New York Times published survey results ranking American presidents.

Naturally those rankings from greatest president to worst rankled conservatives and anyone else with a political IQ higher than their shoe size.

The NYT surveyed 170 members of the American Political Science Association (APSA) and their “experts” listed President Trump as the worst president in American history.

On the bright side, it is the first time since the election that liberals have listed Trump first in anything. Baby steps.

Here are three reasons why the survey results made no sense:

  1. Trump was sworn in as President just 13 months ago. Judging the performance of a president at the quarter mile mark of a four-year term would be like giving college students a one-hour time limit on an exam, collecting their work 15 minutes after the test started and counting wrong all their unanswered questions.

Considering the headwinds this president has encountered from Democrats, their PR flaks in the mainstream media and all the mutinous denizens of the D.C. swamp, his accomplishments in just one year are incredible.

2. ASPA bills itself as the leading organization for the study of political science and numbers more than 12,000 members in dozens of countries.

Considering that three percent of their surveyed dweeps said that Washington, Lincoln and Teddy Roosevelt should be included next on Mt. Rushmore (ahem, they already are), this “expert” organization may want to use ringers from different countries on the next survey.

I’d suggest maybe starting with Russia since they seem to know a lot about American politics and have a history of colluding with Democrats.

3. Aside from their blatant bias and questionable metrics, there are other irregularities in the group’s survey results that are lacking in logic and commonsense. For example:

  • Why did Barack Obama climb from 18th to 8th in greatness from 2014 – 2018? Should we assume it’s because he wasn’t in the Oval Office for over a year? In other words, the longer time away he is from the levers of power, the greater his awesomeness?
  • William Henry Harrison dropped three slots from 39 – 42. Harrison spent just one month in office before dying of pneumonia in 1841. Why was he considered a bad president considering he didn’t serve long enough to mess anything up? And what changed that he was voted even worse than four years ago? Was it because he didn’t get a pneumonia shot?
  • George W. Bush jumped five slots from 35 – 30. My personal theory is that’s because “Dubya” wasn’t caught sending plane loads of cash to help fund Iranian hegemony and terrorism and didn’t illegally use America’s intelligence agencies to influence a presidential election.

Good thing for Obama this is the 21st century. If he’d sent millions in cash to an enemy state in the 19th century he conceivably would have been tarred and feathered at best or punished as a traitor at worst.

But this is today so he keeps his pension, his Secret Service detail and is free to collect ungodly speaking fees from anywhere in the world – even from Russia!

And George Bush is ranked less odious by political historians. A win-win.

Final thought: Critiquing the historical legacy of any administration months after a president leaves office is absurd.  Judging that same legacy while a president still occupies the Oval Office is insane.

Dem Delusion About Russian Collusion

Everyone’s favorite ground hog Punxsutawney Phil saw his shadow this month and you know what that means: six more months of Democrats bellyaching about Russian collusion with the Trump campaign.

Random thoughts about this Democrat Russian collusion riddle wrapped in a mystery, inside an enigma, or as I like to think of it, the Democrat farce wrapped in a deluded delusion, inside a conundrum of crap.

1) FACT: The infamous dossier written by former MI6 agent Christopher Steele and political opposition research firm Fusion GPS was paid for by Hillary Clinton’s campaign and the Democrat National Committee. Remember reading about that in the mainstream media before the release of the Nunes memo? Neither do I.

Reportedly Steele paid former Russian contacts for dirt on candidate Trump, including some working in the Kremlin.

Fusion GPS founder Glenn Simpson was paid through a conduit, the international law firm Perkins Coie who represented the Clinton presidential campaign.

The FBI also reportedly paid Steele by compensating him for expenses although they’ve been reluctant to admit it – probably because they paid him from loose change found between former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe’s couch cushions.

In other words, there’s more evidence of Steele, Fusion GPS and the FBI colluding with the Russians than any member of the Trump campaign.

If that’s not enough Russian collusion for you, Fusion GPS had done work for Russian president Vladimir Putin’s Kremlin comrades in an effort to undermine the Magnitsky Act, a U.S. law that sanctioned Russian officials for the murder of one of Putin’s enemies.

Pravda has reported on this extensively for more than a year in their series on American collusion in Russia’s thriving character assassination industry.

Russian Collusion & Dems, 1 – Trump & Republicans, 0

2) FACT: Last week it was revealed that Adam Schiff, the ranking Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee, got punked by a pair of Russian comedians promising “compromising” dirt on Trump in a 2017 phone call.

The prank definitely left the California representative schiff faced.

During the 8-minute call the radio pranksters posed as a fake Ukrainian politician who promised Schiff nude photos of Trump and a Russian model cavorting after a 2013 Miss Universe pageant.

Is anyone else disturbed by the left’s obsession with naked images of Trump? Sigmund Freud would schiff a load of bricks at their obsession.

Anyway, it’s obvious Schiff doesn’t know schiff about real Russian collusion. He not only promised he’d pass the information on to the proper “authorities,” his staff unsuccessfully attempted to correspond with the fake Ukrainian afterwards to try to obtain the promised materials.

Russian Collusion & Dems, 2 – Trump & Republicans, 0

3) FACT: February 8 Fox News’ Ed Henry reported that the Senate Intelligence Committee’s ranking Democrat, Mark Warner, had extensive contact in 2017 with a lobbyist for a Russian oligarch in an effort to, you’ll never guess, obtain incriminating information on President Trump.

Warner was trying to connect with dossier author Steele, according to text messages obtained by Fox News. The story reported that Warner was trying to meet with Steele through a lobbyist representing – wait for it – Russian oligarch billionaire Oleg V. Deripaska.

Senator Warner had extensive contact last year with lobbyist Adam Waldman in an effort to connnect with Steele, who if he isn’t already, may be the most famous dossier author in history.

According to the text messages Warner was trying to connect with Steele “on the sly” because he didn’t “want to leave a paper trail” of his plans.

Over the four month period from February through May 2017 Warner was also trying to connect with Deripaska to see about having him testify before the Senate Intelligence Committee, but the billionaire knew a bad business deal when he saw it and told Warner, “Nyet, nyet.”

Russian Collusion & Dems, 3 – Trump & Republicans, 0

4) FACT: Uranium One is about a 2010 deal in which a Kremlin-connected entity obtained 20 percent of America’s uranium production by acquiring Canada-based Uranium One.

It sounds like the premise of a Tom Clancy novel that was discarded for being too unrealistic.

The deal had to be approved by the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States due to national security concerns since uranium is a dual-purpose fuel that can be used for nuclear energy to produce electricity or nuclear weapons.

Clinton was never concerned with America’s national security as first lady or U.S. senator, so why would she worry about it as Secretary of State?

One of the concerns with the Uranium One deal was the Foreign Investment board was never advised that the FBI had been investigating ARMZ, part of Rosatom, a Russian-owned nuclear energy company, since 2004.

Anyone that followed Hillary’s work as Secretary of State knew that ‘what they don’t know can’t hurt them’ was a staple of her management philosophy.

In April, 2015 the New York Times reported that the Clinton Foundation got millions from Uranium One investors from 2005 through 2011 but tch, tch, the foundation didn’t disclose any of those donations.

Around that same time former president Bill Clinton collected a $500,000 speaking fee in Moscow. Hopefully no naked photos of Bill Clinton will surface from that trip.

Doubly so for any naked pictures of Hillary.

Critics of the deal have been asking the same two questions the past three years: were Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and Attorney General Eric Holder aware of the FBI investigation into Russian collusion in the Uranium One deal, and if so, why did they allow the deal to go forward? If they weren’t aware of the deal, how could they have been so stupid?

We’ll be learning much more about this ticking time bomb of Russian bribery and intimidation since FBI undercover agent Douglas Campbell recently testified before three separate congressional committees. Fox News is already reporting that Campbell said that Russian executives told him Moscow was spending millions in lobbying fees to influence the Obama administration and Hillary Clinton.

And all this was before Obama was caught on an open mic telling former Russian president Dmitry Medvedev he’d have more flexibility in his second term.

The evidence Campbell collected while working undercover for four years will be a “bombshell” in confirming long held suspicions about Obama and Clinton corruption concerning Russia.

Russian Collusion & Dems, 4 – Trump & Republicans, 0

5) FACT: We now know from the Devin Nunes memo released Feb 2 that the Steele dossier was the primary source used by the FBI to acquire the initial FISA warrant and to renew it every 90 days. But did you know:

  • Sources for the Trump-Russian dossier were senior Russian officials;
  • The only part of the dossier verified by the FBI before presentation to the FISA court was Trump campaign worker Carter Page’s trip to Moscow;
  • The dossier was used for the first time in history as an excuse to wiretap Americans and a political opponent’s campaign;
  • FBI sources leaked portions of the dossier to the media to hamper the Trump campaign and later while the president-elect worked to assemble his staff and Cabinet;
  • The Mueller investigation into Trump was initiated by former FBI director Jim Comey’s illegal leaks and the investigation itself is built on a dossier chockfull of Russian disinformation.

Russian Collusion & Dems, 5 – Trump & Republicans, 0

Bottom line: Democrats have wasted over a year and millions of dollars in taxpayer money looking for the orange-colored collusion needle in the Russian haystack, and so far the only collusion they’ve uncovered is their own side playing footsie with the Russians.

Super Moon and Mooning Over the Memo

NATION APATHETIC ABOUT POLITICIZED GRAMMY’S

This year’s Grammy Awards were an apt reflection of much of today’s popular music: all style and no substance.

Viewership of this year’s Grammy Awards Snoop Dogg and pony show suffered a 24 percent decline in viewership and is it any wonder? A portion of the show founded to honor excellence in music recordings wasted its time airing semi-famous music artists reading excerpts from a Trump-trashing book that is losing credibility with each passing day.

Even MSNBC morning show diva Mika Brzezinski cut a segment short with Fire and Fury author Michael Wolff for fear that the manure he’s been shoveling might get on her shoes.

In fairness to Wolff though, it’s hard to distinguish between the manure he’s published in Fire and Fury and the cow paddies that Mike and co-host Joe Scarborough toss on the airwaves every weekday morning on their show Morning Joe.

At this year’s Grammy’s music artists like John Legend, Snoop Dogg, and Cher were pre-recorded reading book excerpts in prime time in front of a national television audience.

And for those viewers who haven’t had enough of Hillary Clinton, voila – there she was again in the spotlight she so sorely craves, reading a lame excerpt about her 2016 opponent who won the presidency she would try to steal by FISA hook or FBI crooks.

Geez, wonder why people didn’t want to tune into the woman William Safire once called “a congenital liar” reading from Michael Wolff’s book of lies? Would have been better to let sleeping dogs lie – so to speak.

Maybe they wanted to see if Snoop Dogg could read anything without using words like bi%#$, as$%#$%, fu&* or nig$%@.

Next year maybe they’ll do a spelling bee at the Grammy’s or a math competition so they can learn how alienating half of the population that voted for Trump doesn’t add up to helping sell more music.

Also Monday FBI Deputy Director Andrew “FISA Fiend” McCabe was escorted out of FBI headquarters a day after FBI Director Christopher Wray reviewed the inspector general’s report detailing McCabe’s dual roles in the Hillary Clinton email investigation and purported collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian officials.

Russian agents Boris Badenov and Natasha Fatale both declined comment. For more click here.

TRUMP EARNS “A” FOR SPEECH, DEMS “D” FOR DEPLORABLE BEHAVIOR

Tuesday night President Donald Trump gave his first State of the Union address.  During his 1 hour and 20 minute address the president spoke about the importance of faith and family, love of country, unity, bipartisanship and rediscovering the American way.

On average Republicans gave his remarks an “A,” Independents an “A-“, and Democrats a “C.” For more on Tuesday’s State of the Union click here.

One observation on Democrat’s activities during the president’s speech was reported by the London Daily Mail. Brenda Lawrence (D-MI), was caught on camera playing match-three puzzle video game Candy Crush on her iPhone.

While the president was saying that America’s trade relationships needed to be fair and reciprocal, Lawrence was on a sugar high matching and dispatching three-of-a-kind candies.

Lawrence bills herself as “the only Member of Congress with the experience of a full career in the Postal Service.” Guess she’ll now also be known as the Congressional Black Caucus “sweetheart.”

RARE LUNAR EVENT OCCURS MID-WEEK

Midweek all 50 states were treated to a lunar event not seen here since 1866.  Literally and figuratively, it was an event that occurs “once in a blue moon.”

That’s right, a super blue blood moon appeared this past week. According to the NPR website, a super blue blood moon is the convergence of three common lunar happenings occurring simultaneously.

First, the moon is full for the second time in the calendar month, and whenever that occurs its called a blue moon. Second, the moon’s ellipse brings it thousands of miles closer to Earth, making it appear 17 percent larger. That’s called a super moon.

Finally, the full moon’s close approach to Earth causes it to pass through Barack Obama’s shadow, causing the moon to appear blood red.

Whoops, Freudian slip. With all of Obama’s former talk about healing the planet and slowing the rise of the oceans, I unconsciously assumed he had something to do with this rare lunar event as well.

All kidding aside, you knew something weird was happening last week when uber-libs like Nancy Pelosi and Adam Schiff expressed concern that leaks from Republicans about FBI and DOJ abuses could harm our national security and impugn the trust Americans have in those institutions.

#ReleasetheMemo – Okay, They Did

The much ballyhooed four-page memo outlining abuse of the FISA process by the FBI and DOJ was released Friday by the House Intelligence Committee, and true to its hype it is B-A-D news. How bad we’ll see in the next few months, but suffice it to say it proves three points without a doubt:

  • The FBI used political opposition research paid for by the Hillary Clinton campaign and the Democrat National Committee to obtain a secret court warrant to illegally spy on a member of the Trump campaign.
  • Over eight years the Obama administration politicized everything throughout the federal government: the IRS, the National Security Council, the Department of Justice and even the vaulted FBI.
  • Liberals used to be the party of civil liberties and individual rights. Not only is that no longer the case, they have done a 180 degree turn. For liberals civil liberties and individual rights now seem to be totally subservient to the state. Criticism and/or accountability for abuses committed by agencies of the State will not be tolerated by the left.

We’ll be reporting more on the implications of the FISA abuse memo in a few days but until then, remember this: the left is already trying to spin release of the memo as Republicans unjustly criticizing law enforcement and needlessly exposing classified information to America’s enemies.

As the comic strip Pogo famously said, “We have met the enemy, and he is us.”

Dour Dems on Display at State of the Union

WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 31

What a spectacle the American people were treated to at Tuesday’s State of the Union.

How is it even possible to sit on your hands for 90 minutes, make faces like a petulant child, and show such hatred and contempt in the Peoples’ House during a nationally televised speech citing patriotism, inspiring personal stories and the promise to make all American citizens’ lives better?

Nancy Pelosi looked like she finally got around to reading what was actually in the Affordable Care Act and didn’t like it.

Chuck Schumer looked like he’d had supper at Washington’s Trump International Hotel and got stuck with the check.

Retiring Democrat Representative Luis Gutierrez stomped up the aisle like he’d just received an ICE alert on his phone amidst shouts of “USA, USA, USA” from impassioned attendees. Maybe Gutierrez was in a hurry to skedaddle home to watch highlights of Maxine Waters latest “Impeach 45, Impeach 45” speech.

During his first State of the Union address President Trump spoke with eloquence, passion and compassion. He touched on bipartisanship, the importance of faith and family, and love of country. The president also expounded on inclusivity, unity, and rediscovering the American way.

Maybe if he spoke in Russian it would have piqued Democrats’ interest.

“In America, we know that faith and family, not government and bureaucracy, are the center of the American life,” Trump said.

Okay, I can see how Democrats would oppose that statement based on their belief that liberalism is the official state religion, that nature is God and mankind are monkeys not yet evolved.

“We all share the same home, the same heart, the same destiny, and the same great American flag. Today we are rediscovering the American way,” the president enthused.

With the porous southern border left unchecked it’s technically true both illegals and U.S. citizens share the same “home,” but apparently the thought of all of us sharing the same heart, destiny and flag is enough to chill the liberal heart.

“I am extending an open hand to work with members of both parties – Democrats and Republicans – to protect our citizens of every background, color, religion and creed. My duty, and the sacred duty of every elected official in this chamber, is to defend Americans – to protect their safety, their families, their communities, and their right to the American Dream. Because Americans are dreamers too,” Trump reminded.

Crickets. Scowls. Pouts that would try the patience of Santa Claus.

We get it that liberals despise Donald Trump as president. Fine. As I wrote in LifeZette after Trump’s stunning election win, Hillary had every conceivable advantage over the former reality TV star and we understand that was a crushing disappointment for those supporting her.

And it’s not really meant to rub salt in the wounds (well, maybe just a little) to remind those that didn’t vote for Trump that he is their president too.

When the president uses words like “booming economy,” “flag,” “law enforcement,” “military,” “border security” and “God,” he’s not intending to trigger a microaggression or offend, but simply remind us as Americans we’re all in this together.

Bottom line: Do liberals hate Trump more than they love America? From what we saw Tuesday night, the answer is as plain as the dour expression on their faces.
