Kavanaugh Casualties
National Review Online, by Victor Davis Hanson

Original Article

Posted By:Pluperfect, 10/9/2018 9:52:56 AM

When the Christine Ford saga finally ended with the confirmation of Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court, a lot of truth had distilled out, along with the evaporation of prior pretensions and misconceptions. The Left The hearing confirmed that the traditional JFK/Hubert Humphrey Democrat party, as once envisioned by a Bill Clinton, Gary Hart, or Jim Webb, is long kaput. In its place is being birthed a hard-left progressive movement that absorbs the ideologies and methodologies of its base and that now incorporates all sorts, from Ocasio-Cortez’s socialist hipsters to Black Lives Matters, Antifa, and Occupy Wall Street protestors.

The people who must feel lost are all those moderate democrat voters who are watching this and wondering where they themselves fit in.
I am surrounded by liberal neighbours, the only conservative on the block, and I know them as decent Americans. They are very quiet but they must be talking amongst themselves. Wish I could hear.

When I see the Victor Davis Hanson byline, I go to the column immediately. I have never been disappointed.

The other luminary who had my attention like this was Milton Friedman.

Among many, many other great attributes, America is an intellectual fount and for that I am optimistic.

Watching these events from the isolated serenity of a horse ranch in Hemet, California, I have long thought that all these bellowing SJW´s would eventually destroy would be, not their enemies, but themseles and their so-called Movement.

I can´t even describe my delirious joy to see it actually happening.

I don´t count Jim Webb in this current mess. He had enough smarts to not campaign in 2008 when Hillary wanted it for herself. Whatever discussion was had with him, made him vanish so completely that I don´t even know if the guy is still in politics.

Now Bubba and Gary Hart, most certainly built the current mess known as the DNC. Their sleazy prints are still all over the DNC to this day and you can see the results.

What’s ‘immoral’ about caring
for America’s poor first?
New York Post, by Betsy McCaughey    Original Article
Posted By: Pluperfect- 12/12/2018 4:18:35     Post Reply
Congressional Dems are butting heads with President Trump over his demand for ­$5 billion to continue building a wall along the southern border. Likely incoming House Speaker Nancy Pelosi vows she won’t spend one dollar for a wall and calls the idea “immoral.” Not building the wall is what’s truly immoral. Allowing poor migrants to flood across the southern border forces taxpayers to toil longer and pay more taxes to feed and house them, accommodate their children in public schools and pay for their medical care. Americans are already maxed out caring for our own needy, including the homeless

Disgrace: Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Attacks
Gold Star Father John Kelly as a Coward
Townhall, by Katie Pavlich    Original Article
Posted By: Pluperfect- 12/12/2018 4:16:33     Post Reply
Woke 29-year-old Congresswoman-elect Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez went after White House Chief of Staff John Kelly yesterday. Why? She wants him to apologize to Democrat Rep. Frederica Wilson for supposedly "lying" about her to reporters.(tweet)"Cowardice." Quite a big word to use against a four-star Marine Corps general whose son was killed in Afghanistan. Wilson´s spat with Kelly came last year when she alleged President Trump disrespected a military family during a phone call. Kelly disputed her characterization and gave a briefing to the White House press corps on how the military handles casualties.

Democrats eagerly anticipate return of earmarks
as way to win over rank and file members

House Democrats are eagerly eyeing the chance to revive earmarks when they take the majority next year, saying it is Congress’s duty to siphon the money to pet projects — and hoping a return to pork-barrel spending will help keep back-benchers in line. But they’re wary of taking the leap alone and say they’re hoping Senate Republicans will join them in reversing an eight-year ban. Rep. Steny H. Hoyer, poised to become House majority leader when the new Congress convenes in January, told reporters he expects bipartisan support for a return to earmarks.

Everybody’s Wrong: Donald Trump Won
the Chuck-n-Nancy Meeting, and Here’s Why

If Tuesday’s instantly famous Oval Office meeting is a harbinger of things to come, it’s going to be a long two years for “Chuck and Nancy.” Presidents can be intimidating, and Trump had home court advantage during Tuesday’s meeting. However, Chuck Schumer seemed especially outmatched by a very forceful Donald Trump. As Bill Kristol (no Trump apologist) put it: “[B]ased on what I saw of their respective performances in that Oval Office meeting today, I don’t understand why it’s Nancy Pelosi who’s facing a leadership challenge and Chuck Schumer who isn’t.” The mainstream media will focus

Memo: FBI recommended Michael Flynn
not have lawyer present during interview,

Former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, who arranged the bureau´s interview with then-national security adviser Michael Flynn at the White House on Jan. 24, 2017 — the interview that ultimately led to Flynn´s guilty plea on one count of making false statements — suggested Flynn not have a lawyer present at the session, according to newly-filed court documents. In addition, FBI officials, along with the two agents who interviewed Flynn, decided specifically not to warn him that there would be penalties for making false statements because the agents wanted to ensure that Flynn was "relaxed" during the session.

Beto the loser

Beto O´Rourke is a loser. I don´t mean that in some broad sense that impugns his personal integrity or abilities. He´s clearly a very handsome, charming man with a talent for promoting himself on social media and an abundance of that most mysterious and amorphous political quality: charisma. I mean he´s a loser in the precise sense that his singular accomplishment in American public life (besides getting himself elected to a House seat in far-west Texas four years ago) has been to lose a Senate race to the stupendously unpopular Republican Ted Cruz.

"Two years from now, spam will be solved.” Bill Gates, then chairman of Microsoft Corp., assuring World Economic Forum participants in Davos, Switzerland, on Jan. 23, 2004, that software engineers would find ways to eliminate spam emails by 2006. . Bill Gates’ unfulfilled promise pops to mind with each day’s emailed offers of a deal on diodes from Taiwan, or a share of an inheritance in Ghana. Fifteen years after the software wunderkind violated what should have been Machiavelli’s rule of prophecy — Predict only that which already has occurred — the robocall menace stalks virtually every one of us.

Two groups of Central American migrants marched to the U.S. Consulate in Tijuana on Tuesday with a list of demands, with one group delivering an ultimatum to the Trump administration: either let them in the U.S. or pay them $50,000 each to go home, a report said. Among other demands were that deportations be halted and that asylum seekers be processed faster and in greater numbers, the San Diego Union-Tribune reported. The first group of caravan members, that included about 100 migrants, arrived at the consulate around 11 a.m. Alfonso Guerreo Ulloa, an organizer from Honduras,

Comey, Careless and Corrupt

Drunk on his own self-deluded rectitude, James Comey has become one of the most insufferable voices on the Left. He teaches “ethics” at William & Mary, but it is hard to imagine a more unethical FBI director than one who signs off on the most invasive spying warrants imaginable without bothering to verify them, or even know their rationale. That came out in his shameless testimony last Friday in closed session with Congress. It was clear from his slipshod testimony that he hadn’t even read the FISA warrants he approved. He breezily acknowledged that the Steele dossier,

Cohen’s pleas concocted by

I’m experiencing 1998 déjà vu as prosecutors once again work overtime to turn extramarital affairs and the efforts to keep them secret into impeachable high crimes and misdemeanors. Unable to get the witnesses to compose the stories they want, today’s prosecutors are discovering they can simply compose the crimes by manipulating the pleas of men desperate to protect their families. The Michael Cohen sentencing memo took aim directly at both Cohen and President Donald Trump. It was used, unethically, to cast the president as directing a criminal conspiracy to make “secret and illegal” payments. Sentencing memos are not supposed

   

 



 
How Theresa May blew Brexit
New York Post, by Rich Lowry    Original Article
Posted By: Pluperfect- 12/11/2018 4:17:30     Post Reply
Shakespeare famously wrote of the “sceptered isle” of Britain acting as a moat “against the envy of less happier lands.” Lately, the less happier lands are winning in a rout. Britain is suffering a political meltdown as it struggles to make good on a historic vote in 2016 to leave the European Union. The decision for a so-called Brexit was a stirring statement of independence and self-government by a people who have defined themselves down the centuries by their stiff-necked resistance to anyone — whether overweening monarchs or continental tyrants — who would threaten either.

She has the seed money — there’s $12.5 million ready to go, left from her recent Senate run — and a massive email list she’s amassed over years, boosted by a $3.3 million investment in digital infrastructure and advertising in the last election alone. Her aides have been quietly shopping for presidential campaign headquarters space in the Boston area in recent weeks, according to a source with knowledge of the move. All that’s left is for her to give the green light.

President Donald Trump, future House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer erupted in an on-camera fight in the Oval Office over border wall funding on Tuesday. The president argued that funding the wall was a “national emergency” and proposed $5 billion in funding. Schumer refused, insisting that he would only provide just $1.6 billion in border security funds. In response, Trump said he would shut down the government and take responsibility for it if they failed to include additional wall funding.
