Anything goes in the Great
American Snipe Hunt

Washington Times, by Wesley Pruden

Now anything goes. All restraints are loosened, all self-discipline trashed. There’s no cure or even treatment for Trump Derangement Syndrome, a disease as wild and as swiftly lethal as anything imported from the Ebola River valley of the dark continent. The rules and taboos that once guided even the sleaziest excuse for a newspaper no longer apply. Destroying Donald Trump is all that matters in the newsrooms of the mainstream media, so called, and by any means necessary. Rarely have so many hysterics contributed so much of the national conversation. A columnist in The New York Times, ground zero in the epidemic

The Democrats are no longer in power.
The Enemedia is no longer in power.

So why should anyone be paying them a smidgen of attention? Let them rant on like the deranged, ill-intended dupes they are, but please do not grant them any power the voters so decisively took away from them in November.

As annoying as learning of the scandal du jour may be, it is delightful to watch the Democrat political leaders and the Democrats who control our media make the same mistake that Hillary Clinton did in her failed 2016 presidential campaign. Whatever policies she did promote were re-hashed Obama fare (which many Americans had rejected in Congressional elections since Obama first took office) but she focused her energies on attacking Trump almost, 100% of the time. By adopting this brilliant political strategy and when combined with endless protests by liberals in ridiculous hats or violence by masked outright liberal nutcases, Democrat Party approval has declined by 7% (according to a recent Gallup poll). The Democrats just polled on the impeachment question and the results were obviously disappointing, as the Dems are backing off from that. As for the arguably mentally unhinged media, the people already distrusted and despised them and now, distrust and despise them even more.

"The passing of partisan gas".

Pruden has always known how to turn a brilliant phrase.

Compare Trump coverage to Obama´s coverage months after he became president!

He was given a Nobel Prize for show up.

Political Insiders was one of the BEST programs on t.v. and we truly mourn its loss!!!!!!!!! As to Harpf and that ditz on "Specialists", the blonde with (my husband swears) plain glass in her oversized glasses and Joe Namath as guest, God help us. Harris Faulkner (!!!!) is on "Outnumbered" and she and the rest of the panel are genuinely good, and Tucker Carlson, Hannnity, Hemmer, Martha McCallum etc. are true gifts. But the Murdoch "kids" are running the place into the ground, e.g. the exit of O´Reilly, no matter what his faults. This "diversity" with idiots (The Five) filling the spots will kill Fox! People will NOT stay around with this trend, and will not hit CNN or the other idiots but will go back to radio!

Today we finally see a person in the breaking news banner who genuinely deserves to be there, the despicable Mr. Weiner.

Barack Obama in his first year committed actual crimes against the Constitution, wasted trillions of dollars by stashing cash in every guaranteed-to-fail business started by his greenie friends and bailed out an automobile manufacturer that truly deserved to die. Trump has done nothing but good and every day another leftist dope wants to impeach or hang him. The democrats are going to pay a huge price for this and the media will not survive their current campaign of slander and fictional news.

I´ve never understood the concept of the "snipe hunt". I´ve mostly heard it in stories relating to boy scouts, how they send them out on a snipe hunt. The joke is supposed to be that there´s no such thing as a snipe.

Except there is. That´s why I´ve never understood it. (it´s a bird)

Snipe are difficult to see because of their color pattern and are difficult to shoot (if you wanted to) because they fly erratically when spooked. So when called to go on a snipe hunt your task is to find a very difficult bird to hunt and even more so at night.

What the left is doing isn´t a snipe hunt. A snipe hunt is a prank, a joke. What the left is doing is no joke. They are trying to nullify an election by turning the electorate against Trump. They would very much like to impeach Trump. There is nothing funny about this. The left wants to ignore election results and continue to rule (rather than govern) like they did while under Obama.

The media and democrats (same) are full of political hypochondriacs. They can´t help but to see problems with everything President Trump does.

I suspect that a good dose of drubbing in the 2018 elections may help some with their symptoms.

Were Confederate Generals Traitors?
Townhall, by Walter E. Williams    Original Article

My "Rewriting American History" column of a fortnight ago, about the dismantling of Confederate monuments, generated considerable mail. Some argued there should not be statues honoring traitors such as Robert E. Lee, Stonewall Jackson and Jefferson Davis, who fought against the Union. Victors of wars get to write the history, and the history they write often does not reflect the facts. Let´s look at some of the facts and ask: Did the South have a right to secede from the Union? If it did, we can´t label Confederate generals as traitors. Article 1 of the Treaty of Paris (1783), which ended

Prosecute Steven Donziger’s ‘Egregious Fraud’
National Review Online, by Editors    Original Article
Posted By: Pluperfect- 6/28/2017 5:05:51 AM     Post Reply
Steven Donziger, a left-wing lawyer with connections to the Obama administration and Andrew Cuomo’s administration in New York, attempted to orchestrate a multi-billion-dollar shakedown of Chevron in a case that was later thrown out by a federal judge as the product of “egregious fraud.” For once, the word “egregious” may not be quite strong enough: In dollar terms, Donziger’s case against Chevron may very well be the largest attempt at extortion in human history. The case involves environmental damage in a remote part of the Ecuadorian rainforest. What might be of some interest is that Chevron — this may strike

At least 1 US nuclear plant´s
computer system was hacked

Federal authorities are investigating a breach into computer systems of at least one U.S. nuclear power plant, sources familiar with the matter tell ABC News. There is no evidence that any particularly sensitive or operational systems were breached. Instead, authorities believe only a less sensitive, business-associated side of systems were compromised. The breach was first reported by E&E News, which covers the energy and environment sectors. E&E notes that the hack did not garner the attention of the public safety alert systems at the Nuclear Regulatory Commission or the International Atomic Energy Agency, which could be further evidence of a low risk

Paying workers to protest: The controversial
trend of social justice benefits
Fox News, by Claudia Cowan    Original Article
Posted By: Pluperfect- 6/28/2017 4:30:25 AM     Post Reply
Since the election, scores of activists have taken to the streets, town halls and rallies to blast President Trump. That’s all with the blessing of their boss thanks to social justice benefits and paid time off work policies that are growing in popularity. At San Francisco marketing firm Traction, social justice benefits take the form of two so-called "Days of Action" a year. "They can take part in a protest, they can volunteer for a cause that is meaningful to them," says CEO Adam Kleinberg. "Civic engagement is a foundation of our democracy, and companies should encourage it."

Obamas under fire from the left for never
ending, sizzling ultra-luxury vacations
Fox News, by Christopher Wallace    Original Article
Posted By: Pluperfect- 6/27/2017 1:27:09 PM     Post Reply
The Democratic base is growing increasingly frustrated with former President Barack Obama’s actions after leaving office, including a seemingly endless tour of millionaire and billionaire luxury retreats, according to Democrats and activists contacted by Fox News. Ex-presidents, understandably and un-controversially, go on vacations immediately after leaving office. But the level of luxury the Obamas enjoy on their vacations is unprecedented for a modern-day president, say travel experts. Since leaving office in late January, Obama has visited late actor Marlon Brando’s private island; the Four Seasons in Bali -- where rooms cost upward of $2,000 per night; a Palm Springs estate; Sir




The Banana Republic of Illinois

The media has hyperobsessed over the Kansas tax hike this year and sold it as a repudiation of supply-side economics. But the real story in the states has been the catastrophic effects of tax-and-spend fiscal policy in Illinois. Last week, Illinois House Speaker Mike Madigan endorsed a $5 billion annual income tax hike. This would be the largest tax increase of any state in years. Republican Gov. Bruce Rauner has blocked new taxes for three years but is now under intense pressure from the Springfield political machine to agree to the revenue heist. Anyone who thinks this soak-the-rich scheme will

Samuel Johnson once said, “When a man knows he is to be hanged ... it concentrates his mind wonderfully.” For opponents of the Trump immigration order, minds became distinctly more concentrated around 11am this morning, when the U.S. Supreme Court reinstated much of Trump’s order in a reversal of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit. While the court will hear the merits in October and could still rule against the administration, these preliminary decisions often reflect a view of underlying merits. For those of us who have long argued that the legal authority supported Trump, the order was

Former National Security Adviser
Susan Rice Says She’s a Victim

Former national security adviser and UN ambassador Susan Rice refuses to go quietly into retirement, even though she remains one of the most controversial figures of the Obama Administration. Now, thanks to a glowing profile in New York Magazine, we know that despite Susan Rice’s very public shortcomings (whatever happened to that dastardly filmmaker who spurred violence across the Middle East, anyway?), she believes any criticism of her tenure is at least partly the result of racism and sexism. When asked why she became a “target” in the Trump Administration, she replied, “I’ve spent a lot of time thinking about

Just days before he resigns from Congress, Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-Utah) said Monday that House and Senate lawmakers should receive a $2,500 per month housing allowance — something he explained would help ease housing costs for members who can’t afford two mortgages or rents. “I really do believe Congress would be much better served if there was a housing allowance for members of Congress,” Chaffetz told The Hill in an interview in his Capitol office, where he sleeps whenever he’s in Washington. “In today’s climate, nobody’s going to suggest or vote for a pay raise. But you shouldn’t have to be

Ohio Gov. John Kasich came out against the Senate Republican health care bill Sunday, saying both Republicans and Democrats need to do a better job at helping poor people. “Both parties ought to be worried about poor people, because I don’t think either party particularly cares about helping poor people,” Mr. Kasich, who lost the Republican Party’s presidential nomination to President Trump last year, told CNN’s Dana Bash. “You look at the rates of poverty, the problems in this country,” he continued. “We have not designed a system to get people work. Everything we’re talking about now — getting people

Actor and filmmaker Rob Reiner was shredded by social media users over the weekend after he called for an “all out war” to resist President Donald Trump. Writing on Twitter Sunday, the All in the Family star mentioned a Fox News report about the Trump campaign’s alleged collusion with Russia during the 2016 election. “When Fox says that DT colluding with the enemy is not a crime, the fight to save Democracy is now an all out war. US-Stay strong. #Treason,” he wrote. (Tweet) Reiner’s remarks were slammed by several social media users, many of them suggesting that the actor’s tweet

The Obama adventures continue! Barack Obama and his family went rafting on the Ayung River in Bali on Monday amid their nine-day vacation to Indonesia, where the former president lived for several years as a child. Obama, wife Michelle and their daughters, Sasha and Malia, were invited to vacation in Indonesia by President Joko “Jokowi” Widodo, who also asked the family to visit the presidential Bogor Palace in West Java during their trip, according to ABC News. Obama will also speak at an Indonesian Diaspora Congress in Jakarta on July 1. Obama moved to Indonesia in 1967 at age 6

A U.S. warship struck by a container vessel in Japanese waters failed to respond to warning signals or take evasive action before a collision that killed seven of its crew, according to a report of the incident by the Philippine cargo ship´s captain. Multiple U.S. and Japanese investigations are under way into how the guided missile destroyer USS Fitzgerald and the much larger ACX Crystal container ship collided in clear weather south of Tokyo Bay in the early hours of June 17. In the first detailed account from one of those directly involved, the cargo ship´s captain said the ACX Crystal had

The New York Daily News’ senior justice writer Shaun King blasted Christians Monday for perpetrating white supremacy for their support of President Donald Trump’s immigration halt. King put out a series of tweets accusing Christians who supported the halt of “fake faith” after the Supreme Court allowed Trump’s immigration ban to go into effect. (Snip) “To support a ban on immigrants & refugees, while calling yourself a Christian, is not faith, it’s white supremacy disguised as religion,” King tweeted.
