GUN VIOLENCE

In the aftermath of another school shooting, all the normal nonsense on both sides is paraded out.  The biggest problem in my opinion is as I have said before that the media on both sides gives these idiots nonstop, round the clock, coverage.  When the next incident occurs, bring us actual news while it’s happening, but continuing nonstop coverage needs to stop.  Once the perpetrator has been captured or killed, only report if you have something new to add.  You’re making these idiots famous and that only makes it more likely that another idiot will try to outdo them.

HEADS UP

If you follow this blog, you will already know that by all accounts from REAL scientists  we are heading into a little ice age in the next 15 to20 years based on the fact that the sun is heading into a low point in solar activity called I think a grand minimum.  And in fact this coming minimum is supposed to be more than twice as strong or maybe weak would be a better description as the minimum that led to the last little ice age.

You will also know that the computer models used by the faux global warming scientists say the Sun has zero effect on our temperatures.  Now anyone with an IQ above moron would say SAY WHAT.   And also that James Hansen, one of the most prominent global warming idiots, who has been wrong in virtually all of his predictions of doom, is now saying that global warming will lead to an ice age.  SAY WHAT!

The idiot in chief of this nonsense, Al Gore, who has a carbon footprint that dwarfs all of us, is now saying global warming will lead to an ice age. I am begging this idiot to run for president in 2020.  Trump would crush him by twenty points in the general election, but pontificating to the contrary notwithstanding, he’ll never do it because he’d be exposed as a fraud.  He has even said recently that his bogus predictions about sea level rise were correct but the sea floor dropped canceling out the rise.

Now you’re probably asking yourself what’s the point of this rant given that pretty much all of the above has already been pointed out on this blog.  Here’s the point.  I recently saw an article saying something like is Alaska the canary in the coal mine?  The point of the article was that apparently temperatures in Alaska are rising while the rest of us are freezing.  I say apparently because Alaska is huge, I lived there for four years, and I doubt that much of the state has temperature monitoring stations. Alaska is basically the size of everything west of the Mississippi in the lower forty eight and much of it is uninhabited.

What you really need to take away from this rant is that during the last little ice age, and you can look up the maps on Paul Homewood’s blog which has been frequently cited here, Alaska was warmer than normal and everything east of it to about Greenland was frozen.  So when you see nonsense about Alaska being warmer just remember that it was the last time the rest of us froze.

I’m going to go out on a limb here, like the global warming idiots do and make a future prediction that no one will ever remember if it proves to be wrong, and it won’t.  It will be right.  In the year 2050 the climate in North Carolina will be like the present climate in Pennsylvania and snow will be on the ground through much of the winter!

BTW I will undoubtedly be dead by 2050.  I would have to live to be over a hundred and I don’t see that happening.  Mid 2040’s is a possibility given my ancestors but I don’t see 100 as a real possibility.

 

DANA PERINO

She is clearly a never Trumper.  Anyone who has watched her over the past several weeks can’t come away with an impression other than she is either a Dem or a never Trumper.  Ever since Trump criticized her former boss, George Bush, and rightly so given that the Bush dynasty is part of the political swamp, she has gone out of her way to support anything that is anti-Trump.

CONSTITUTIONAL CRISIS

Clearly the Dems and their fellow travelers in the MSM get together every day to agree on their phrase of the day.  Last week it was cherry picking in the Nunes Memo.  Monday, it was constitutional crisis if Trump removes Rosenstein.  Watch Laura Ingraham’s show for a montage of this nonsense.  Fortunately for them in their echo chamber no one asks what constitutional provision would that violate?  The answer is none.  It may cause a political crisis, but Trump has every constitutional right to fire this toad.

The important point here is that all Republicans or others who believe in the rule of law need to turn out this year to assure that the Republicans maintain the majority in the House.  If the Dems get control, they will impeach Trump regardless of whether or not they have any provable crimes or misdemeanors.  We cannot continue as a constitutional republic if the president is impeachable if he loses control of the House.  What do you think would have happened if the Republicans impeached Obama for lying about keeping your doctor and your plan or lying about the video causing Benghazi?

Just in case you don’t understand the process, impeachment by the House will not result in the removal of Trump.  It would take something like either two-thirds or three quarters of the Senate to actually remove him.  Never going to happen.

DEMS RESPONSE MEMO

Just to get out early on this, the same Dems who ranted and raved about how releasing the  Nunes memo would lead to the complete and utter destruction of our national security, have now written a counter memo which the committee voted to release yesterday triggering the five day period for the President to review and declassify their memo, or redact national security info and release those parts that are releasable.

Guess who couldn’t wait and leaked their version to the NBC news.  I guess national security only applies to info exposing Dem corruption.  Now I could try to comment on the counter memo, but I haven’t seen it.  However, Andrew McCarthy at the National Review apparently has and wrote an excellent article today pointing out just how specious and incompetent this supposed rebuttal is.  Just look it up.  It’s entitled “Jerrold Nadler’s Leaked Response to the Nunes Memo is Very Week”.

I suggest you read it so that when the left starts spewing their nonsense about the Dems memo eviscerating the Nunes Memo you’ll know the truth.

TUCKER BLOWS IT AGAIN

Just watched Tucker with some Dem idiot and when the idiot said Carter Page being paid for giving speeches in Russia was tantamount to being a Russian agent and he didn’t respond with so that means Bill Clinton being paid 500K for a speech in Russia means he’s a Russian agent.  I appreciate that as a litigator I’m used to having to think on my feet, but this is just too obvious for anyone to have missed.

WHAT I SUSPECTED WOULD HAPPEN

As I suspected, Schiff in continuing his assault on the truth would come out with a counter memo of half truths and outright lies.  You can tell Schiff is lying because his lips are moving.  Their big lie today is that the FISA court was made aware of the political nature of the Steele Dossier.  Bullshit! There was a FOOTNOTE!  It indicated that some info was from political sources.  It did not tell the court that the political source was Hillary Clinton, the person running against Trump.  It also didn’t tell the court that the dossier was bought and paid for by Hillary, and more importantly as we learned today, it did not tell the court that not only did Hillary pay for the dossier but that she also paid the folks who provided the false and salacious info to Steele.  The Dems are desperate.  Don’t let their lies prevail.

Also, there is a claim that the investigation started months earlier based on Papadopoulos drunken ravings.  While it’s true that Strzok opened an investigation months earlier, he did nothing and didn’t even interview Papadopoulos until after the FISA warrant.  Just another red herring!

Appoint a special prosecutor and put her in jail along with all the other Obama crooks.

BTW:  I have written many legal briefs and several published law review articles and no one reads the footnotes!

THE MEMO

The first thing I want to point out is the ridiculous screeching from the left and their fellow travelers in the MSM about how release of the Memo would be a national security nightmare.  I challenge anybody to point out anything in the Memo that puts our national security at issue.  The only thing the Memo exposes is the unconstitutional actions of the Obama administration and the corruption at the highest levels of the DOJ and FBI, and puts these swamp dwellers at risk.  Comey ought to shut the hell up because he needs to be prosecuted and put in jail.

Now what did we really learn from the Memo?  Not as much as I would have hoped.  Almost all of it was things we knew or suspected.  The things we learned were that Comey and his suck ups lied by omission to FISA court to get the ability to surveil the Trump campaign.  They didn’t tell the judge that their supposed basis was bought and paid for by Hillary and unsubstantiated.  They didn’t tell the judge that Steele not only was paid by Clinton but was a died in the wool Trump hater dedicated to making sure he wasn’t elected and if he was that he was removed.  They didn’t tell the judge that Steele was fired by the FBI for violating there rules and they didn’t tell the judge that their use of Yahoo news to corroborate the fake news dossier was actually info fed to Yahoo by Steele.

As an aside, using Yahoo news to get a FISA warrant is even more ridiculous than using this blog to get one.

We also learned that there would never have a application for a FISA warrant absent the bogus Steele dossier.  McCabe testified under oath to that effect and when Wray saw the memo, McCabe was either fired or resigned protecting his pension.

Before I get to what needs to be done let me talk about the Dems counter memo by Schiff.  After throwing a hissy fit about the Memo revealing sources and methods, it has been reported that his memo in fact reveals sources and methods and thus needs to be redacted before it can be released.  Do it and release it.  The Dems have nothing!  Also release all the underlying documents and in particular all the affidavits presented to the FISA court to justify spying on Trump.

What needs to be done? Fire Rosenstein.  Appoint a special prosecutor to determine if crimes were committed in obtaining the FISA warrants and whether Comey, McCabe, Clinton, Rosenstein, Meuller, Lynch, Strzok, Page and Ohr committed crimes.  They did.

My disappointment in the Memo is that it only covered the FISA warrants and not the numerous other crimes committed by Obama, Clinton and their stooges,
